We * are requested to state that  several citizens who signed the petition  to have the railway station placed on  the south side of the , track express  indignation at not being invited to  the meeting at the city hall last night  and have taken steps to get up a  counter petition setting forth their  views that while thay would like to  see the station placed on" the south  side,of the track they would prefer to  see it stay where it is proposed to  locate it than to have it moved a  great distance east or west of the  present site, and repicsenting the  above meeting was not publicly  convened or representative of the  public.

The strike was made in a  crosscut from , the intermediate De-  tween Nos. 5 and 7 tunnels and developed a new vein 15 ft. wide, well  mineralised throughout the entire  width. . .  The quartz ia different 'from anything yet found in the mine.  The wall of the lead Was,found to be  literally plastered with gold and J he  ore gives average assays far ahead ol  anything yet found. That" is saying  ing much, foi some of the Eva ore has  run away up. ���������<  The good news has had  a  splendid  effect on the Fish Creek camp, mining i  men beingi mucii -elated  over it and  expressing the'opinion   that   the experience is likely   to   be   repeated iiu  other propsi tics. ,  t,The Imperial1 Company, who own  the propei ty, are being congratulated  on all hands on their good.luck for it  is felt they deserve it.

Wells   Proposed  True Solution. ���������  .Reserves Required for Providing Educational Funds.'  Upon rising to speak on  the  Educational bill, .W. C. "Wells   said  'this  bill did not come to him as n surprise  in'so far as it'was an attempt to'make  ,    further provisions for our 'educational  requirements, and especially  in  coining to the rescue of thc ITon. Finance  .Minister.     This was evidently the intention of thc bill, 'in  order  that the  ���������   "Finance jrinistcr might demonstrate  to the, people, of' this   province .his  peculiar   fitness   for' the .position he  occupied,'but who, 1 am.bound to say  ���������'has not shown his usual  ingenuity in  having to resort to  the inipairniciit'ef  our whole educational system by making,  it ^subservient   to   his  own am*  'bition.  '   ,       * '     "  Previous   governments     have   certainly evinced   a   good deal of'appre-  heiision, as to tho-growing 'necessities  incident to   om\ educational'requirements;   the.. first  .sound   of    alarm  coming  from   the  1-lcrr.  President of  '',the Council,   when   a   member   of a  * previous government,  so that'I could  understand  . his     advocating     some  ,  * further provision for' our educational  requirements, but what does  surprise  me is to find that the'llon.  J'resident  ���������of the Council with his long experience  ��������� .  as'a' public mail had not  warned   the  Minister of Education of the   insuperable objections that" would   be   raised  against this bill and   that he had not  endeavored1 to   steer thc government  .through    tbe   (lillicultie.-, th.it,   must  confront il in seeking to, impose =ucli  aii unjust burden upon the peuplu  of  this province. -, ,  When ii.diilging in such enconiums  upon the Hon. President nf the  Council,   I   do   not, intend   any.ie-  I flection uporr the   Hon.- Minister ot  -v Education, as ho   has certainly taken  'great pains in endeavoring at' least to  r    explain   the ' in co-pity    of   hi-    IMI  travi'l'in-; f-tr .uid wide,  and   covering-  apeiioil.of   over ,.'5U   yen is   adminis  -tr.ition of our iitVuirs in,mder  that .he  i ' might psiablish precedents for furtln'r  meddling with,our- scliO"! laws,   but it,  II inu=t appeal to everyene th it if the  cninliinedett'orts and' wisdom 'of 'all  our precccliiiggovernments and legislatures liave'been directed to pe-feet ing  our educational system 'extending  over such a long period we-suiely  have arrived at that stage in so adapting our educational lnws, as to show  the unwisdom of  THI.-      lilt \STIC      AXD       L-y.lUSTlFlAHI.i:  i .   I.nCIISI.ATlO.V  l. c      t  intending as it does, with the beauty  and harmony of onr whole school  system.  It is lemarkable Sir, with what  tenacity people will hold on to what  in their opinion is a vested right for  although not a vested right in the  strict application of the term, yet by  practice and privilege, it has become  a light or indeed a compact which  the struggling settlers of this province will make a desperate effort to  maintain, before parting with tlie me  education of their children  Xo one kivws or can .tell   how far  or to what extent free   or   state education   may   have contributed as ,an  incentive to'  the   settlement   of   our  '   more remote districts,   and   while the  settler may adapt himself to  his  conditions, to the adverse  circumstances  which may   surround    him,   denying  "himself the ordinary comforts  of  life,  'iie is nevertheless buoyed up with  the  Jliope and l.uuiible ambition th.it some  day -ooner or later he may   have   the  proud    satisfaction     of   seeing     his  children   attain   that   succes-?  in life  to which we all aspire, and for  which  he )ia= made such a sacrifice, but take  that away, and   it   may   be his   only  encouragement in   adapting   himself  to the   condition   under   which he is  ���������existing.     Thi.-   may be sentiment if  you will, but  sentiment   remember is  the     underlying     strata   of    public  opinion   which   if adversely aroused  must be   followed   with   unwholesome  influences affecting  the settled conditions which have so happily existed.  The If on. fourth   member for   Vancouver twitted  member*]  on   this side  of tlie House  with formulating   their  opinion from the  mere   circumstance  of their  sitting  in   the cold shades of  opposition,   forgetting   that   be   was  paying a peior compliment to   hirnfiolf  and his   friends   on   the   side of the  treasury   benches.       Well,    perhaps  much difference ' in the principles  which guide honorable members and  there may be a good deal in the  negro's definition amusingly illustrated by one lot of hogs trying to  drive the other lot away ' from the  trough. It must be very noticeable,  however', that the present government  and their supporters are very, anxious  to keep their snouts in this trough so  long.as the swill holds out. ,Tire lion,  member was also very loud- in his  protest against the attitude taken by  members representing rural districts,  giving the absurd reason .that when  thc city of Vancouver was so willing  to pay its share of the additional  taxation, amounting, to about $12000,  rural districts should not complain in  submitting to their share of the increased burden.,. There is no comparison, Sir, iii the two.conditions, for  it must be remembered that thc city  of Vancouver is today enjoying a remarkable degree of prosperity���������people  line flocking there in hundreds,.' real,  estate is,booming, building'operations  are active and every one is making  money, ix'cepting,'of course, thc ,. poor  lawyers, among "wliom ' was thc  honorable gentleman. He in fact  was willing" to , assume all the responsibility and relieving all others  from any share of it. .This'question  of responsibility, however, was "often  of very doubtful'value, and  can be no  better illustrated than upon a certain  ' . '     .   i-    '  'occasion   vividly   in my mind,   when  attending college in Toronto. -'A  rather seedy individual appeared ' at'  the launching of a ship'crowded with-  people anxious to enjoy its first dive  into-the - bay, and although attended  for some reason with considerable  clanger apparent by the excitement  of all on board'and by the futile efforts  to start the ship, said: "Letcher''go  boys: All take nil the responsibility."  Soi that you .<*ee, Mr. Speaker', this  as.-umption of responsibility is sonie-  times without much value, and it will^  be particularly demonstrated in the  'case' of- the honorable, member-for  Vancouver when rejected byi, his , constituents'lor the stand he -has taken  upon this question. ������������������ ,   Y   ''  - His further argument was that'in  rural districts the inciea'scd taxation  'nftei nil. did <nbt amount to much,  say .1-5 per head on the'basis0of 20 rate  'payers.to a'Vural'disirict. ''Well,' Sir,  ,this may not be-much to a resident of  ;Viiiic6uver, but it' is a good deal "of  money to,a man who' has,not. a.dollar  in his . pocket,'"nnd/does' not know  where to get it. "rIn my own constituency, so far us*I can calculate, it  iiinj ui some districts amount to a  \eiy much greater tax than!*':) to each  i-f the mtu p.iyt-is.' In (Jolclen district for instance, it will mean a sum  in the vicinity possibly oi $1000 in  the aggregate to be- raised, while in  ihe upper districts of my constituency  proportionate sums will have to be  contributed, and which may mean  very  UNACCEPTABLE       IXCREASED     BURDEN'S  to the people.

JR.   Wilkie.  when he said that. "There was no pro  vinoe in the Dominion which equalled  in elasticity of  resources the province  of British Columbia."'     So, Sir, with a  proper administration oi our  departments so happily  referred to   by   the  honorable member for  Alberni,  there  would   be \no   neeel   of the increae-ed  taxation as proposed by this bill,  but  nevertheless, I am strongly in favor of  more specific  provisions  being  made  for the   maintenance   of   onr   school  Eystem.     The  Hon. Minister of Education referred to the intention of the  government to set apart a  portion   of  the public domain   for   the support of  our schools.      Could    the   honorable  gentleman   have  been sincere in thi?,  when the government has allowed   to  slip   from    its   grasp ejne of the mr-st  magnificent opportunities that could  have heen within its reach '!

They had  'their own little Gcorgies, Willies and  Harry's to educate, so that ,��������� they  would beJrendy to,hold up their little  "hands all at once and all at'the right  ��������� ���������' time.     It  is a pity indeed that after  the many years devoted to perfecting  , our beautiful system;1 it should now  be spoiled by the inevitable' effects of  . this bill. Apart -from its general inapplicability, tlio. machinery for its  imposition       , ������,      ' , "  IS SIMl'JiY LUBRICOUS.  For instance, the proposed secretary  of school .boards is to be such a victim  of economy as to call for our profound  sympathy.     The wonder is, that, the  ' govornment*"cnn oxpect to find people  who have not more trespect' for themselves thnn to accept such a position.  , The people ' in { unmunicipalii'.cd  districts are paying the whole of their,  taxes into the treasury/at Victoria,  and for'which they enjoy nothing but  ' tho maintenance of  our  road  system  . and free education. '   Our'road niain-  -tctitince   under'.the   pre'sont,.govern-  ,nient is becoming sadly impaired and  take aivny free,education and there is  really nothing left e\-ceptiiig,r6f course,  a share-'in -the administration -of  < * justice. I- was very much'interested  in the remarks of the honoiable member for'Victoria-sitting on my left, in  ��������� the course of which he said that,*"The  ,   people of this country were becoming  over educate^." A - A ��������� '  -Well; Sir,- there is " perhaps   a   good  ��������� deal of   truth   in'such1 a statement,  -although it-is difliculfto ,tell "a man  that he knows too much or tell a  parent that liis child should be deprived , the advantages of superior  education.      There  are, however,' 'two  ��������� things apparent to my own mind, first,  that, parents oftetic,direct the education of. their childien ' regardless" of  .      -* '       ���������  the   qiinlific.itions' they . possess   for  ���������their intended   vocations  in' life, and  the ' second   is, that in   our common  'schools a child   of   ordinary   aptness  finished up the course af'the' age   of  say* 13 or 14. is too young-' to be taken  from   school     or   be '<��������� debarred    the  privileges of further education, so that  tbe-only recourse  was   tc * enter   the  high school,1 leading a   boy/on   as it  almost, invariably did, to the.acquir-  ' ment of a" profession and   in   a   great  many   instances'  to-* a.  pionounced  failure. ������������������'    .'-.-.' . "',*'*...  .My own idea is thai the standard of  OUR'rOMMOX SCHOOLS  might be advanced so'that a' boy or  young mnn at a more advanced age  c.'iild determi e for himself ns,, to  whether he If ad not been sufficiently  educated for the more ordinary spheres  of life'. There could be no doubt,  however, that our Superintendent of  Education, ;a gentleman of great  ability, was giving'his best efforts to  perfecting our system, and I would  not presume to" set up any very pro-  .nounced opinion against his long  experience and the study he was devoting to educational matters.-  The 'honorable , member for Newcastle was evidently much embarassed  in supporting this'bill, for after a good,  deal of see-sawing, backing and filling,  he concluded to* vote for 'the second  reading fur the absurd'ieason that if  "the Liberal party- got into power it  *��������� would inflict upon the people much  worse legislation. Such an argument  is unworthy of any, member of this  House.' The honorable gentleman  forgets that he owes to the Liberal  pifrty his own political existence, and  the verj seat he now occupies ��������� in this  legislature. He' forgets ' when he  throws this slur upon the Liberal  party, that he tramples upon the  rights and privileges the people of  this Dominion are enjoying today.  The Opposition in this House is  proud of its association with the  Liberal party and has every reason to  be, when it can look to those who  have accomplished so much towards  the prosperity of this Dominion in  the few .years they have -ruled at  Ottawa. We are proud, indeed, of  our great leader, Sir Wilfred Laurier,  who has so raised himself in confidence, affection and admiration of the  Canadian people.  I appeal to the government, in view  of the discontentment it must raise  among the rate payers of the province,  to withdraw this bill, and I appeal to  the Hon. Premier, knowing his sense  of right and justice, that it will not be  pressed to a conclusion."  RAILWAY  NEWS  ,       ' *1     tl 3  FREIGHT'CHANGES.

GOOD PROSPECTS FOR DUTY.  ,The Northwest Market   Promises Well. " -  T. F. Pateison, the well-known  Vancouver lumberman, says a large  majority of members of the Commons  ���������favor a duty on lumber. In coming  Tthrough the prairie be investigated  ' -conditions and found that American  lumber was not sold to the settlers a  -cent less than the B. C. price list, and  -the only men reaping the ' advantage  ���������of the lower prices c*n American lumber were the dealeis. He considers  the market in tlie northwest in^ex-  ���������.cellent shape for taking the cut of  .British Columbia during the coming  ���������-season, and expects the prairie to take  100,000,000 ft. to 120,000.000 ft. of our  lumber this season. American mills  .shipped in there 100,000,000 v feet last  season. Mr. Paterson also, thinks  Ontario could, in the event of a duty  toeing imposed, take 50,000,000 ft. of  large dimension timber from this  province, and the C. P. R. can deliver  it ten days quicker than the American  roads.  Tlie   Nnnie  ot London.  The old name foi the cil.\ ol London  was Lyndon ot-J-lynden. nie.tnini.'
