HOW THE OPPOSITION"  Sought lo Defeat t.ie McBrido  Government, anil"  t  ���jr. nuoiiii'  Thoro wasa little old plot hatched in  the local House List Monday by the Opposition party, to which very scant reference has heen made by either of our  contemporaries���the Colonist because  itis, as "always, ri fi it i.i to stand up Cor  its friends ; the Times because tho said  plot was so bivlly mangled in iis execution, and so __cC.iri.Mi!. in sonic of its details, tljat it was ullerly u-elcss even  for Liberal political capital.  The bed platis of the plot were laid  by the immaculate Opposition at the  end of last week. Mr. Maegowaii (Vancouver) had bu-iiie-'s in tlie Terminal  City which would r.ec:< si late liis slaying there over Monday. He accordingly arranged,- a pair vvitli a well  known up-country Liberal member,  who, for thc sake of whatever little  remnants oC credit arc left to the party,  ���hull be nameless here.  Mr. (jrillbrd ^New Weslmiiisler) was"  suffering badly from la grippe, and he  likewise was assured of a pair in the  event of his staying at home to nurse  the fell disease.  Then some honorable���very .honorable  ���members of the Opposition made certain further arrangements, which resulted in something happening about G  o'clock on Sunday morning.  When, therefore,-the JLIuiii-c met on  Monday afternoon, there were no less  than four of the Government supporters absent from their places���Messrs.  Maogowairand Gilford, aud two other  members who weic even more sick  than Mr. Gifibril.  Then   Mr. 11. ICtill (Victoria*) rose to  resmnc thc  debate on  tlie  Education  Bill, and concluded his speech by mov-  _ing lhat_lho_Educalion_Rill_do_i'ecei_ye  the six mon lbs' hoist.  The Government ictalialed by  promptly moving thc adjournment ol"  the debate; but tho Opposition said  "No/' and a division was iu order accordingly.  The bell rang thrice and, chuckling  iu their sleeves, the Opposition members hurried to their scuta to lake part  irKwhaL they deemed would be;an easy  victory.  Just what niiscalculalions had occurred in thc plans ofthe conspirators  will probably never be publicly known;  but tho fact remains that whon the*  Speaker counted hands the best showing the Opposition could m.il.o was sixteen voles, while tho poor, weak McBride Government, deprived by  methods liltleshort or felony of four of  its supporters,, was still able to put up  nineteen votes and thus defeat the conspiracy.  The extremely honorable up-country member who had promised to pair  with Macgowan broke his plighted  ���word without a "blush; Mr. Gifford  was also disappointed of his promised  pair, and the absence of the oilier two  members could be explained best by  some members of the Opposition.  The desperate straits to which the  "hungry, mercenary, despoiling, office-seeking. Opposition,"���a? the Victoria Times of last Wednesday, with  refreshing candor, calls them���are now  driven, can well be judged 5y their employment of such disgraceful tactics as  have been faintly���for full particulars  belong rather to the police court docket  than the . journalistic page���outlined  here.      Tt is possible to be a gentleman  in'spite of lieinj^ a politician���but sonic  jat least ofthe Opposition party do not  appear tn.be either one or the other,  inlging from the calf-like clumsiness  with which this unclean little bit of attempted jobbery was bungled through,  lo fail at the lu.l, and leave its perpetrators shorn alike of the honest name  which softens defeat or the meritriciom  success whieh gilds disgrace.  Tliat is llie"bitter part of it lothcOp-  poaitiou-��� they have achieved nothing,  they have forfeited icspcct by unparliamentary tactics, and, worst of all, they  have with their own hands laid bare to  tho gloating-gaze of the public their  own pitiful weakness. Every thing was  in their favor, the Government about  whoso weakness they have been shouting Cora year past was still further  weakened by the loss of four of its  members, and yet���even yet���the great  Liberal paity could not use their advantage, but nail to meet ignominious  and dii-i_iv.eeful defeat on tho very field  and on the very terms they themselves  had chesen.  As remarked abovo, the fulldetailsof  tbis affair aro not set down here���they  arj not lit fi.r publication. But it may  bu well to point out to (he Opposition  tint, while in Yukon and in Ontario it  was, up to a few months ago, permissible fora hungry politician to cast  iis'd j every shre d of self-respect $o  long as he gained his political ends,  yet a repetition of such tactics iu British Columbia will only serve to bury  tho parly eyen deeper in this Province  than it is buried in the east and  north.���Tlio Week, March 11.  tin*  B"NfiHC  THREW AT A FOX,"  HIT A MINE  Two young Canadians', David Dun-  Ian and Noah Timmins, both of Mat-  tawa, Out., registered at a New York"  hotel this week, says lhe New  York Herald. They brought little  por.'ionul baggage, but did bring two  freight ears whieh they had sidetracked in Jersey City.  1'orty tons of rock were in these  cars, lt had been mined by Dunkip  and Timmins in Northern Ontario, between lakes Teniiscoiuingue and Tem-  aganiie.  When the two Canadians left for  home yestoulay they had sold the rock  Cor $7-5,000. They had struck a silver  and nickel mine which promises to be  one of the richest iu Che world. They  hate obtained complete ownership of  the properly, and declare they would  not sell for ?5,OCO,000 each.  Tlie territory in whioh thc mine is  located is little'known except to hunters. Almost a year ago the Canadian  Pacific Itaiiway projected a line  through lhat section, and last spring u  blacKsmith's shop was built alongside  of thc newly laid tracks.  - One Sunday afternoon as a blacksmith, hammer in hand, was strolling  around a Cox started up in front ol  him. Ho Inn led lhe hummer, missed  lhe fox, but the hammer struck a projecting bowlder, making a sharp metallic sound.  Tne blacksmith became interested.  He sliuck the bowlder and became  convinced lhat il was largely impregnated with metal, lie clipped some  chilis ed" llic* rock, and taking them to  Mai lawn, lie'showed them to Timmins  aud Buniap. The latter saw the specimens weie largely silver.  Carefully guarding the"secret, the  two men wont to the place and discovered more than a di /.en other specimens of rock. All were of silver,  with about 12 per cent of nickel and a  trace of cobalt and arsenic.  They also found a well defined ore  vein running along the surface of the  ground for nearly a thousand feet.  Claims were filed, and Noah .Timmins,  his broi her Henry and David Dunlap  became tke owners of the property.  Tbe threo men, with a gang of twenty-  live miuers, then took possession aud  began operations.  The indignation of thc virtuous gen-  ���tlemen who supported thc "progressive  party" at the last municipal election is  to say the least of it, highly amusing.  The sympathy of thesame gentlemen  Cor Joseph Harwood, who lost his  home and everything contained  thereii', may be regarded as the climax  of hypocrisy, Every one of them knew  that the "progresMve party" bound  their candidates hand and foot lo abide  by (he will of their leader, aud equally  as well did they know that it was thc  will of the leader to disorganize every  department in thc city, in order to re  duce the officials to a proper sense of  respect Cor the ''master, mind." It was  no ordinary compact in which thc  signers were equal���it wa3 a complete  surrender oC liberty to the leader. The  men who entered into the compact  did so with their eyes open, anTT the  men who supported them at the polls  cannot shirk their reeponsibility  for tho deplorable condition of affairs  now existing. They are equally responsible with the representatives of  the "progressive party" for the disorganized state of the fire department,  and no amount ofhypocritical protestations to the contrary will in any way  relieve them from a full share of-this  responsibility. In refusing to do accept  it, they only.add cowardice to their  other shortcomings. It may seem an  exaggerated view of the situation to  assert, lhat these men do not care if the  whole citv was reduced to "ashes, yet  did they not vote for .the men  who by their acts, have shown  that protection to property is only  a secondary consideration���the- first  being the perpetuation of the spoils  system. If it should happen now and  again that luck should be with their  appointees well and good, but aboveall  tho fiiendsof tho boss must be provided for. And the friends of tho boss  must not be interfered with ;��they are  the force in politics, and their reward  must be freedom to.come and go at  their own sweet will, in opposition to  all discipline. What docs it matter if  the ratepayers pay dearly for protection  to their property ? Has not the boss of  tbe whole works decreed that the  money_of tlie ratepayers, is to be used  in unnecessary advertising in the Nelson Tribune, and otherwise contributing to tlie support of a man who has  been more or less of a charge on tbe  community since the lirst day he arrived iu Nelson, Has not a majority  of the voters declared for the perpetuation of this policy, and now why  sliould s-itiic oC them try to squirm out  of their degrading position? No one  cm reasonably find fault with the individual members of tho fire brigade.  They did everything that could be ex-  pecttd of them without a chief'to direct their operations, but serious fault  is to be found with the authorities who  interfered with the department with  the result that tlie man who drove the  wagon did know where to locate the  fire, and the Muting chief either refused  to sacrifice a good breakfast to direct  his men or did not know anything  about the fire. Thc argument of one  of the newly-appointed officials that  the building destroyed was not a very  valuable one, is the climax of folly.  That house was just as much to the  man who lost it as a more expensive  building would be to a richer man, and  there was nothing to show that more  intelligence would have been displaj'ed  | in fighting a more extensive eontlagra-  [ tion. The fact remains that if the fire  chief had reached theground in reason  able time the furniture-.would have  been saved. Just what would have  ' happened had the fire taken place on a  day when there was a high wind, sueh  as prevailed last week, no oue cares to  suggest. The brigade was manifestly  unable to cope with a Gre of small di  mensions ; 'whatwonld they have done  iu the case of a larger fire ? And who  would have been held responsible?  Undoubtedly tbe men who disorganized the fire brigade in tho first place,  and the voters for electing an irresponsible municipal machine in tho second  place. Aud no amount of snivelling  and dodging can alter the situation.  Thoy knew what they had to expect.  Do men gather grape3 of thorns or figs  of thistles'?  The smoker given last night under  tlio auspices of St. Patiiek's Society  was a gratifying success. About one  hundred were present, and tbe fact  that nearly everyone remained until  the last, is the best guarantee that the  entertainment provided was of an attractive character. A cold dinner was  served by Choquette Bros., and it was  a credit to the caterers. Music was  supplied by Fred Irwin's orchestra and  was specially suitable for the occasion.  President Seaiilan proposed the usual  toasts, and the responses were appropriate.- Indeed the speeches were more  than usually bright"ancl eloquent, particularly those delivered by Messrs.  Arthur, Ebbs, O'Driscoll, Sullivan,  Fraser and Clark. Others spoke  briefly, and all were well received. The  songs byJMessrs. Sullivan, Meagher,  Forin,!Devlin and others added much  to tbe enjoyment of thc occasion. Altogether the Irishmen of Nelson have  reason to congratulate themselves on  the success attending their celebration.  The many friends of Geo. B% McMillan aie pleased to see him back in their  midst, after his providential escape  from the Yaquis Indians. Indeed,  "Mac's" bosom friends made his return to his old quarters "the occasion of  a re-union in which the narration of  his-adventures was punctuated with  prayers of thanksgiving. The more  thrilling the escape recounted, the  more fervent were the prayers ���pronounced. Georgo McMillan is an rb-  serving niair ar.d an interesting conversationalist, and the occasion of his  recent viait to Mexico is dealt with in  a manner which never fails to draw a  large"auclience. Tlie liitener can learn  more about Mexico in one hour's conversation with him than can be  gathered out of half a dozen books on  the same subject. He will return to  Mexico in September.    *���>  At the Coast the lacrosse players are  already beginning to practice. It is  more than likely that the New Westminster club will re-enter the B. C.

However, a condition of joining the league  would be that each team in thc league  will post $100 as a guarantee that it  will fill each and every game of the  schedule.  anyone el.-e believe it. Mr.;Houston is  desirous of putting some of his political enemies out nf business, and this  he would do if the city council had the  power to cut off hotel licenses?" The  fact of the matter is, the member for  Nelson has an object in eveiything he'  does, and that object is nearly ahvays  something either to advance the in-  . teres Is of liis political friends, or to  harrass his political enelnies.  Revive Fig liters Besides  Knocking Them Out.  Ji^lViY RYAN'S BELIEF  British Columbia has contributed to  the stage many famous actors in the  past. Indeed, one of the leadiug.play-  wrights. David1 Belasco, was brought  up on Vancouver Island. It is now  .reported that one of Lillooet's fairest  daughters has found fame on the stage.  Miss Kathryn Spolman, of that place,  lias signed an engagement-for two  years and a-half with an American  theatrical troupe which will tour the  cities of the Coast ahd visit Honolulu,  Australia and the Orient. She has  been at a dramatic school in Sail Jose.  Harold Nelson returns to the Opeia  House two nights the week after next.  The first night he will produce "Hiche-  liou," perhaps his strongest piece, and  on the following night he will repeat  "Paul Kauvar."  Clarence Goepel has left for San'  Francisco, and will make California his  home, for at least some time. Clarence  was popular here, and previous to his  departure his fiiends gave liimaiit-  'ting send off.  vThe North Timmins.referred To in*  another column as one of the owners  ofthe big silver mineat Mattawa, Out.,  is a brother-in-law of A. Ferland, formerly of Nelson. It is understood that  Air. Ferland is heavily interested in tlie  mine.  Dr. Hamilton, who lias been physician at the Kootenay Lake General  Hospital for the past year or so, has resigned, and will move to Arrowhead.  He will take charge of the new hospital at that place, and also engage in  general practice. The doctor has  many friends in Nelson. who will  watch hi3 future course with interest.  lie will leave for his'new home within  the next two weeks.  Next Monday the Nelson Tourist  Association will hold a meeting at the  H tune Hotel fororganization purposes.  This is a matter which should interest  every citizen of Nelson.

Australian Jimmy J*tyan says yes, and has  his own experience to prove it.- Ryan,  a few years ago, was regarded as one of  the best middleweighlsin tho business.  He fought Joe Walcott, Tbmmy West,  Joe Cboynski and some of the fastest  men in the ring, and'if he failed to win  the worst he received in the majority  of the contests was a draw.  About seven years ago, when Ryan  was iu excellent foim, he met Joe  Cboynski in Butte. Owing to the reputation of the men a largo crowd turned  ont to sea the combat, and the receipts  of that aflair, according to Ryan, exceeded over $11,000.  "That fight is indelibly impressed on  my mind,'' said Ryan the* other night  to a party of friends, thc coifversation  having drifted to some old time ring  battles. "Everybody knows that  Ghoynski-can punch.^In my opinion,  he is one of the swiftest hitters in the  gamei" WneiWtook Cboynski on I  knew that I was up against it, but as I  was in the business for all there was in  iti took a chance.

C. Nurserymen's association,  ifc is said that the agricultural committee of the Local Legislature will  recommend a number of amendments  to the horticultural board act when it  reports to the house.  On Monday the committee was  waited upon by Mr. D. M. Robertson  and Mr. Olilson, president and secretary respectively of the nurse>men's  organization, who complained that  the officials of the horticultural board  were incompetent. They also* represented that the co3t of the inspection  of fruit trees was excessive ; that trees  were injured by careless handling;  that provincial inspection should not  be necessary after fumigation by, the  Domiuion authorities.; thnt the power  of tbe horticultural board to close nurseries should be limited to a prevention  of the sale of varieties actually- infected ; that the damage for which nurseries may be held responsible through  the sale of infected stock be limited to  tbe bond required in tbis connection,  etc. Some of these suggestions it is  said will be embodied in the committee's report to the House.  Discussion of these matters was continued at a meeting of the committee  Tuesday morning, when Mr. Thomas  Cunn.ngbam, provincial inspector of _  fruit trees; Mr. R. M. Palmer, and Mr.  J. R. Anderson, government officials,  were present, as well as the representatives of tbe Nurserymen's Association.  Fora time the proceedings were decidedly lively, owing to conflict of  views in-regard"io"tIfe"queslion of cohl^-  petency raised by" tbo nurserymen's  deputation. The chairman had occasion several times to call the meeting to order, such words as "sucker,"  "grafter," and other words synonymous with the tree growing business  being transplanted into the discussion  amid roars of merriment. At one  stage the chairmen threatened to close  the session entirely on the ground that  it had degenerated into a farce, but the  humor of iho thing was too much even  for his dignity, and he laughed with  the rest.  That no hard feelings were engendered by the meeting was evident by  the fact that the whole company adjourned subsequently to the restaurant  to smoke a friendly cigar.  Il is said that as a result of the meeting the committee has practically decided to recommend the appointment  of nurserymen to the horticultural  board.  The Sandon mines last week shipped  33 tons of ore, 31.of which was zinc.

The citizens of Nelson must feel  themselves under a debt of grati  tude to Messrs. Mclnnes, Cameron  and Oliver for their able defence of  the member for this cit}r. The f<;ct  that these gentleman are Liberals  does not detract from the obligation,  although it may hint our civic pride  a little that Nelson's member was  not able to defend himself. Incidentally it might be mentioned that  the Tribune gracefully acknowledges the services rendered by  Messrs. Mclnnes, Cameron and  Oliver.  The battle which raged for days  in and around Mukden resulted in  "victory" after thousands of men  on both sides, had been slain. The  Russian forces retreated, with the  Japanese in hot pursuit, toward Tie  Pass. The Czar, we are told, shed  tears, and lhe Mikado was elated,  when notified of the result. Each  gave thought only to the effect upon  *' ''.himself; neither gave thought to  f" the men who killed each other for  they knew iiot what���to the fact  that the dead upon the blood-stained  battle-fields meant desolation worse  than death for more than as many  living wives and children, fathers  juid mothers.  The Government is being asked  by the Associated Boards of Trade  to assist in lhe construction of electric lines throughout the Province.  Tne movement is worthy of praise,  and should receive due consideration. In mining districts, the  proposition, if carried into effect,  would do much towards the opening up of districts which are now  partially dormant owing to the lack  of transportation. The needs of the  Trout Lake and Lardeau divisions  requite some cheap method of transportation. Electric lines are cheaper  and can tap portions of the district  where it would be impossible for  the standard guage roads to reach.  In the Lardeau division a road of  this kind could be operated from  Go-it Mountain to deep water on  the Arm, which would be of lasting  benefit to numerous properties. In  the Trout Lake division a road  could be opera ted*" from 10-Mile to  Trout Lake, which, would tap several producing properties and allowing��� numerous- -oihers-to- produce  which are at present closed down.  ���Lardeau Mining Review.

On but few of  the proposed changes is there anything like general agreement among  those interested in the industry,  while in regard to some of them the  strongest opposition is expressed by  men whose opinion is entitled to respect and consideration.. The present outlook for the mining industry  in British Columbia is brighter than  it has been for some time and we  consider that, for the sake of problematical improvement in the laws  regulating mining, it would be unwise lo have legislation introduced  tbat might arouse suspicion and  cause alarm as to the extent or the  direction in which it might be carried. "Leave welt alone'' is the ac-r  vice that may be advantageously  followed at the present time in respect to this matter.���News-Advertiser.  I.v. Kelson 7 a. 111. daily, Ar.

Nevertheless, it is  worth hearing.  "It was' warm and dry, and along  In the middle of the  afternoon I  be-  ,gan to pine for. rest and a pipe. It  was all quiet and no'traces of game,  and so -when I'd had a comtorlabl-  smoke I stretched out for a nap.  ���"It must have been, .an hour later  ihat I woke up and found myself eov-  =-ered���with���two-feet:��� of���leaves-snug��� as-  the babes in the wood. I was all  tucked iii* that cosy that nobody else  could .have done it but a cougar, and  most likely a female cougar at that.  It occurred to me with some force lhat  I'd "been filed away for future reference, and that I hadn't waked up  any too soon. It didn't soothe me to  figure on that cougar stowing mc away  as a dog hides a bone.  '���It seemed that the best thing (or  mo to do was to countermine that cougar's mine, as it were. So I hunted  up a log about my size and covered it with the leaves���a nice fat  hump on the- ground. Then I shinned  a tree close by, assuring myself beyond any doubts or poradventures that  nobody had meddled with the working  of my repeater.  .. "Tho cougar came ln such a short  time as to show, how fortunate it was  that I had waked up when I did, and  with her, as I had calculated, wr>re a  choice lot of young ones.   She had I.Ct  ' a dinner located and liad been oft to  get her family.  "Well, that cougar circled around the  pile of leaves for a matter of minutes,  crouching and picking a nice select  place to spring from. "When she got.  satisfied and made the leap she went  ���through the air tremendojs, throwing  the leaves in a whirlwind and scratching and snarling. It was some of a  shock when she found the log, but -=he  didn't display any disappointment. She  just took the. scent and came to the  foot of my tree and looked up, .real  venomous.  "It seemed to her an awkward job  to handle, I having my gun ready so,  and the cougar had an inspiration.  She went to a tree about ten ftet away  and started to go up. She was after.  ���that meal and not to be discouraged  by  any   trifles.    It   was   her   idea   to  . climb up above me on the other trea  and then bring me down with a llylrig  leap.  "I didn't lose any more time with experiments or speculations, but let her  have It the first time sho earns i-ound  the tree. The ball went through her  jaw and breast, and the varmint wjnt  to the -ground. The young ones were,  running around, and I knocked them  over, too, with the gun.

What He Casis For.  mmm __.���  A learned ju<:_re who was one of tha  sruests at a" dinner was unexpectedly  railed upon to reply'to a'toast. Recovering somewhat -from his surprise, ha  esid that his situation reminded him of  the story of a man who.fell into tlis  water whilo he was fishing-.  With no lillie ullliculty he tras res-  uued, and after he had regained his  breath and was in a fairly comfortabla  condition, his rescuer asked him how  hs came to fall into tlie water.

An engine is being installed at tbe  sliip yards to draw bouts and barges on  the skids for repairs. Befor<r thia a  great deal of time was lost,.by the use  of horses for the work.
