M  nit nn-iiMi (o.. liM  Ever since election the politicians  at the coast have been guessing 'as to  the probable outcome in regard to the  .lieutenant-governor. They all appeared to agree that his usefulness was  gone, and the'(resolutions of the convention of the latcr opponents of the  govern ment, last Monday, was evidently promptly sent to Ottawa, and  caused the dismissal of Mr. Mclnnes.  The following dispatch from Victoria,  dated Wednesday, shows the result:  "The axe fell today  when  Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes was dismissed  from office by the Ottawa government  and Sir Henry Joly has been appointed  in his stead.    Joly has given   up  his  position in the   Dominion  cabinet  to  accept the post, and as he is at Ottawa'  it will take a short time  before, he can  get to Victoria  to take up  his  duties.  In the  meantime  Premier Dunsmuir  cannotappoint the remaining members  of a cabinet, so a lull is bound to ensue  until Joly arrives.    Mclnnes feels very  sore, but declines  to   talk  for  publication,   though   he says  that   he  will  give a  statement to the press in a few-  days.    Joly  cannot  be  officially   appointed   until   Mclnnes  receives   his  dismissal by mail and acknowledges it.  There was great joy here today   when  Mclnnes' dismissal, was announced."  early in July. This will be a very  short one, lasting only about ten days,  for the voting of supplies, and no contentious bills arc to be brought forward. There was a fear that Governor Mclnnes, who has been asked  to resign, would dismiss the ministers  who had been unfaithful to him in  asking the governor-general for his  dismissal and thus playing into Joe  Martin's hands by precipitating another  serious situation.  Just before adjournment an important resolution was passed to the effect  that mciTibers of the legislature there  assembled agreed to* the principle of  the eight-hour law.

CelebratlS1  Great  preparations  for the Dominion Day  Greenwood.   On account  day falling on a Sunday, tbe  be held on  Friday  aor-*  next week, the 29th an  Governmental Extravagance.  Any one of the hundreds who constantly travel over the . wagon road  between Phoenix and Greenwood can  testify to the dire need of'repairs to a  considerable extent.' This, week the  government evidently thought that a  crisis had come in road repairing, and  taking the bull by the horns, regardless  of all possible consequences, actually  spent $10 (think of it! $10 all at once!)  on this piece of road. And Mr. Mc-  Mynn, representing the government at  Greeenwood, says this is all that can  be spared. If this sort of thing keeps  up, the province will soon be irretrievably plunged into debt.  The road between Phoenix and the  Winnipeg mine will have to get along,  apparently, in its present horrible condition, for Gold Commissioner Kirkup,  of Rossland, recently went oyer it, and  said it was good enough. ;It is noticeable, however, that wagon roads around  Rossland are in no such condition.

When James Dunsmuir was called  upon by Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes  to form a,government, he at once set  about the task. James H. Turner,  formerly premier, was .chosen- finance  minister, and D.M. Eberts as attorney-  general. These were theonly appointments made up to the time that? Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes was dismissed by I.ord"Mintb. It is expected the  balance of the cabinet portifolios will  go lo members from the mainland,  and as usual, all sorts of rumors are  afloat as to who will be selected.  Wanted Mclnnes Dismissed.  The convention of the late opponents of the government, held at Vancouver last Monday; passed the/olfow-  ing resolution unanimously, having  been moved by R. G. Tallow and  seconded by R. McBride:  "Resolved, that in the opinion of the  undersigned members-elect of the legislative assembly of British Columbia,  the action of the governor in  calling  upon Joseph Martin   to form a ministry, while wholly   unsupported   in the  legislature and giving him such an unwarranted time to complete  his  cabinet, and his completion of the same by  gentlemen unendorsed by the  electorate, was contrary to the principles, use-  ages and customs of constitutional government, and  detrimental  to the best  interests  of the  province; and  alter  having been emphatically condemned  by the electorate  at  the  late general  elections, respectfully  request the premier of Canada to lay these facts   before the  governor-general of Canada,  humbly suggesting that the  usefulness  of His Honor, the lieutenant-governor  of British Columbia, is gone."  Phoenix Will Be Represented.  A number of those in town who are  of an athletic turn of mind, are practicing up to take part in the Dominion day celebration at Greenwood,  next Friday and Saturday. As Phoenix has some good men in this line,  they will .doubtless make a good accounting of themselves. The Old  Ironsides boys are practicing daily for  a foot ball contest, and one will  probably be arranged with a Greenwood eleven for next Friday or Saturday. . .  New K. of P. Officers.  .I'hoenix Lodge No.,-3% Krirj3ts :of  Pythias, at the regular weekly meeting  last Monday night, elected new officers,  as follows: C. C, Jas. A. Clark; V. C,  C, W. Abbott; Prelate, Dr. G. S. Gordon; M. of \V., Chas. W. Thompson;  M.of A., Joe Mandel; M.of F., M.A.  McQuarrie; M. ofE., G.W. Rumberger;  K. of R. arid S., L.C. Crawford; I.G., I  T. A. Blair; O. G��� Harry Lee.  The lodge is flourishing and new  members are introduced to his goat-  ship at nearly every evening.  It i.s a rare circumstance, when  the  ore bunkers, stopes, drifts and tunnels  of a mine are so full of ore  that men  must be laid off till   the railway can  take it away. Such, however, is exactly  the condition  at  the Old  Ironsides,  Knob Hill  and  Victoria mines,  and  last  Wednesday  some 30 men  were  forced to suspend temjiorarily, as there  simply was not room for them to work.  Superintendent   Win.   .'Yolen   Williams    returned   from   Grand Forks  Tuesday, and as the C.P.R. were so far  behind   with finishing  up the spur to  the smelter,_as well as in  completely  ballasting "the Phoenix spur, these men  were laid off for a  few  days.    Work  with six drills  was   discontinued   but  work on other parts of the  properties  continues as usual.  While the officials at the mines can  give no set date at which shipments  will actually begin, they can hardly be  postponed now for more than a few  days at most. The delay and trouble  is entirely with the C. P. R. management. 'I'he ballasting gang has been  shorthanded since June ist, when the  wages were reduced from $2.00 to  $1.75 per day. The track has been  laid to the smelter, but several side  tracks were needed and some trestle  work had to be done.  Early in the week a track gang came  up the Phoenix branch, and has partially ballasted the Knob Hill and  Ironsides spurs, but some small changes  have yet to be made, so that when  shipping does begin, it can continue  without- interruption for needed  changes.  ,. Yesterday,'June asd, was the date  set for-the shipment of the new 16-drill  duplex Rand air compressor by the  Jcnckcs Machine Co., from the shops  at Sherbrooke, Quebec. The compressor house is practically completed, and the foundations for the big]  machine will be ready by the time the  shipment arrives.  includes  aorse-  Over $2,ioo<';n cash has alrcau  subscribed. 'I'heC.P.R. has gran  a single fare for the round trip from  all points in the Kootenays and Boundary. This goes into effect on the 28th  and is good until the 2nd inst.

The so-called opposition convention  closed harmoniously. The mainland  gave in, temporarily at least, to the  Vancouver Island delegation, this being the only way in which, as one  member put it, ���ex-premier Martin  could be effectively extinguished. '  convention unanimously 5 agreed to  support Premier Dunsmuir and his  government in passing all necessary  legislation at the coming session, with  the understanding that there will be a  thorough reconstruction of the cabinet  after the  session,   which   takes  place  W. L. Orde, the secretary of the  Brandon and Golden 'Crown  Company, returned recently from Wellington camp, in the Boundary Creek  country. He says everything about  the mine is proceeding like clock work,  and the prospects of the company  never were brighter. Three hundred  tons of ore have already been shipped  to the Trail smelter, and daily shipments will continue. The smelter returns give $21 per ton in all values.  Mr. Orde says the ore i.s similar in appearance and quality to that of the  Le Roi and War Eagle mines, but goes  higher in values.  The company lias reason to congratulate itself on its proud position, which  M1..G. H. Collins the managing director, has brought it to. There arc  large reserve ore bodies on the 100 and  150-foot levels, and the mine will be a  steady shipper from this out. The  pay-roll of the mine averages $3,500 a  month, and the present force of 20  men will be increased, so that the development work will keep pace with  the output of ore.  Andrew Laidlaw yesterday wired  the president of the company, Hon. T.  I'he Mayne Daly, Q. C, from Denver, Col.,  that the results of the Loder smelter  test of the five tons of Golden Crown  ore taken there by Mr. Laidlaw for  experimental purposes was highly satisfactory; being gold $22.40, silver 7S  cents and copper 26-10 per cent; in  all values  $36.68.���Rossland  Miner.

The Golden Crown has now become  one of_the steady  shippers  over  the  spur'of the C. P. R.    At first.  cars  were  available,  which  ding a slow  process;  but, of  regulation ore cars have  been  by the railway company, and  nd unloading is consequently  d".    In   conservation    with  a  man yesterday   W. J.  Porter,  who is in charge of the Golden Crown,  said:,    .       ;  "We are shipping at regular intervals  now, and   send  out seven cars of ore  per week, or an  average  of. one  car  daily.    We expect  to  send  out  four  cars tomorrow, which will make a total  of 30 cars shipped by the Crown since  rails were laid to our ore bunkers.  '    .ar will  hold  about   23 ton's,  total of nearly 700 tons ship-  ,  ate.

Last Monday the final   payment  of  $12,500 was  made   on the   Hartford  group, close  to, the   Golden   Crown.  This amount was turned over by H. N.  Galer  of Grand   Forks   to the   late  owners  John Rogers and   H. Jones.  The group of claims   was  located  in  S95 by Mr. Rogers, and last fall were  ojed to   Eastern   Townships   and  y'jTj.    ipitalists  for  $35,000.   The  .'���on the bond have  all   been  1 development has been carried  "r-'jily since last fall.'"It' has "re-"'.'���''  n. opening, up  some  fine  ore  ""-.e.s, and the Hartford is now  considered one of the coming properties of  the camp.  The Hartford has been developed  by a perpendicular shaft, which has  been sunk to a depth of 100 feet.  Crosscutting and drifting to the extent  of 125 feet has been done and several  good ore bodies opened up. The  other claims of the group have also had  some prospecting work done on them.  The. owners of the property have every  mrl,  i**!*  to feel encouraged with the  f the work thus far, which is in  of J. A. Williamson.  BRIEF BIT IAIPORTANT.  Since the'preceding article was put  in type a train of ore cars arrived in  Phoenix, and was switched up to the  Knob Hill ore bunkers. The cars  will be loaded today with all possible  dispatch, and sent down to the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks. This will be  the first shipment of ore ever made by  rail from the big mines of Phoenix  camp. From now on there wil! doubtless be a steady stream of ore trains  going out from the Old Ironsides, Victoria and Knob Hill mines.  m  Agent for  -and���  'S  PHOENIX, B.

Hell in Summit camp are working steadily, with  favorable results.  Development on the Mountain View,  adjoining the Ii. C. in Summit camp,  was resumed on Thursday of this week,  after a stoppage of a couple of months.  Development so far consists of a 90-  foot tunnel and a 45-foot shaft with  501'eet of drifts. It is expected to strike  the ore body shortly.  Nick Tregear took charge of the  Winnipeg last Monday and began  underground work once more. It is  expected that a larger force than ever  will soon be employed. Thus far 1 5  airs have been shipped. The net  returns for three cars recently shipped  are given out us #787.93.

One theory advanced is that it is the reaction consequent njiOn the rush following the  building of a new line of railway.  But, as far as Phoenix is concerned,  the Pioneer takes a different view.  The ballasting of the railway to this  |>oint is only just being completed.  }n a few days we shall see the first of  ,a succession of trains canying ore to  the reduction woiks���oie that is taken  from bodies of mineral that will pio-  duce lor years to come. This fact  should gradually make improved business conditions.  Other evidences of faith in the permanence of Phoenix are not wanting,  tithgr.     After    mature   delibeiation,  find being in the best possible position  to judge of the t real  backing of the  ramp, the managers of one of the oldest  chartered banking institutions of Candida, decided to establish a branch here.  JLast week the bank began  business in  Phoenix.    It is also announced that a  custom   house will  be opened   here  < shortly, one of the consequences of  the completion of the railway  to  this  point. ' '  The Pioneer does not believe that  all these substantial advances mean a  Doom or anything of that 'kind.    But  jhey do mean the gradual  fulfillment  of the predictions already made for  Phoenix.   At present   there are  no  business openings here���almost every I  line is well represented.    But, as  the  iire trains grow larger and   more  fre-(  ajuent, there will be a gradual and per- j  inanent growth of the place, and hopes  long defcried will crystallize into  reality.    Phoenix certainly  has a bright  future.  West Lillooet with 222   votes,  has as  much or moicsay in the legislature.

Joseph Martin has resigned as  piemier of British Columbia,  and recommended James Dunsmuir,  the millionaire coal mine and railway  owner,  as his successor.    The lieiitenant-gov-  rrnor has acted on the suggestion and  Mr. Dunsmuir can now prefix Honorable to his name.    He has chosen  his  jninistcrs, and will probably be able to  .start business on July 5th,   when   the  house meets,   wJth  a good working  majority.  Mr. Martin's friends and enemies  seem to agree that his recommendation  of Mr. Dunsmuir was part of a deejv  laid plot; that, 01 all the old opposition  jiarty, no man would be easier to beat  jn another election than Mr. Dunsmuir;  in other words,  that Mr. Mai tin  still  has some old scores to wipe out,  and  that he will be  "strictly  in  it"  when  another appeal to the people is made.  We have  had  enough   of unstable  governments, however, and the people  are heartily .sick of the political squabbling that has been going on  for a  couple of  years.    Consequently  the  majority will welcome a government  that thinks more of the affairs  of the  province than of the personal ends  and aims of a few politicians.  Of the new premier a correspondent  at the coast has the following to saj:  "Mr. Dunsmuir is more of a busi-  pess man than a politician. He has  f��rved one leim in the legislature and  at the elections just over was elected  Jor South Nanaimo. He is now at the  bend of the gieat firm ol R. Dunsmuir  Si Sons, the millionaire coal and rail-  vay fiim which owns one-tnird ot Vancouver island, It is supposed that the  choice will meet with general approval  11 nd that Dunsmuir will be able to  lorni   a  strong   patty   in  the   house  \t the recent elc�� tion   Dunsniuir  de-,        -, ,'.,,-."  , Imed that he was strongly m iavor o.; ou:r the I��ovinrc.-Knslo Kootcna.au.  doii'g away with Chinese in mines, and '    this will make him tnoie a<cept.iblc to  t'i-> working classes t!i. 111 woulo* otho>-  ttiso. bate );>ecn theca^c.

Some of the most cold-blooded swindles which Have ever been perpetrated  on the public have been those which  have had for their avowed purpose the  building of plants for ore treatment,  says the Denver Mining Record. It  is so easy to estimate the possible, ore  tonnage of a district; so easy to fix a  price per ton for ore treatment which  will have a profit of $3 to $4.1 ton  above'the estimated cost of operation;  so easy, these estimates, to base a profit  of 25 per cent or more per annum,  that it is little wonder that so many  idle process mills and dismantled  smelters so eloquently point out, these  crimes against the mining industry.  Plants have been built where the promoters had. no 'expectation that they  ever would be 'operated.- A commission on the cost of construction is sometimes a sufficient inducement to the  "cheap skates" who have and who are  preying upon legitimate mining.  m.
