It was felt by those present that such .i public" institution was  worthy of the hearty support of the  entire commiij ity, and that a hall in  aid of the hospital fund would be well  patronized.

Just as the Pioneer is going to press  it has been decided to give a ball, for  the benefit of the. Phoenix - l'ue l)e-  paitnient. It wiil take place on the  evening of December 12th, Thursday,  at Miners' Union Hall. As nearly  every? !matr <in: -the *city�� is interested  in seeing that nothing needed is wanted lor the department, the ball Will  doubtless be a success., Further announcement in the matter will be made  later.  Lost���100 School Desks.  The trustees of the Phoenix public  school have been wondering what has  become of the 100 patent school  desks that havebeeii ordered and sup  posed to have been shipped from ���V.tn-,  couver two or three months ago. They  were intended for the new school  building, and have been,, very much  needed. This week, however, Secretary  Matheson received notice from tlie  superintendent of public instruction  that the'desks had actually been  shipped on the 9th inst.j and should  arrive in Phoenix any day.  Mr. Matheson also wishes to call  the attention of parents to the fact  thai the appropriation-for-the Phoenix  school for the next year will be based  on the attendance for the last quarter  of this year, and that therefore it is  particularly necessary,- if sufficient is  secured from tlie.government to pay  the cost of conducting the school during 1902, that the attendance for the  balance of this year should be as large  as possible.  Development on the Golden Crown,  adjoining th: Winnipeg,; about two  miles and a half fiotn Phoenix, is now  in lull swing with a small force of men,  which will be increased as they can be  used. As the mine is on low'.''ground,  compared u the pioperlies around,, it,  there was a large amount of? .water in  the workings, and it took aliitlelonger  than anticipated to get it:'free of the  water. This, .however, wa^accomplisli}  ed last week, and men set at,,woik' re-  timbering and fixing up the workings  in several places where needed.  This work has now been largely ac  coinplislied, and early this week the  compressor was started . lor" the first  time in a year. Supeiiiiteiident. Dun-  canson has one or two machine, drills  in operation, the work being'idone on  the 35-foot, 1 op-foot aiidf 360-lbot  levels. This week the force1 of men  employed numbered 14, but i| is an  ticipated that this will be increased as  last as they can be used to advantage.  J. L. Parker, having about- finished  his Work'of examining tlie 'Winnipeg,  has been employed to examine, the  .Golden Crown, "and advise concerning  the future development of 'the property. This work he is now; doing.  Some excellent ore bodies are known  to exist in the Golden Crown, from j  which there have already been shipped  about 2,250 tons of ore. ?!l his ore  was shipped, however, at a time, when  the freight and smelter treatment rate  was $7.50 per ton.; As the'rate is now  acout $3.50 per ton or less to<��� either  ol the smelters, the difference between  this and the,old rate would...'represent  a^^ii'sirjerable-profit ���in'itse'f^'vS '���.���; W. ������ .-���  The mine is.'" equipped1 with compressor, pumps and hoist, and was the  first mine in the Boundary country to  pur. inacage. It also has a well constructed ore bin, to Which the C. P.  R. track has been lun. Those, best  acquainted with the property believe  that the Golden Crown will prove to  be one of the leading shippers' in the  Houndary in the course of time.  ���;  Notice to the Ladles of Phoenix.  To the Ladies of Phoenix:���At  a meeting held Tuesday in the Hardy-  McKenzie hall, to discuss ways and  means ol raising funds tor the equip  ment of the Phoenix General Hospital  it was decided to form a permanent  Ladies' Aid Society to be called "The  Hospital Ladies' Aid Society."  Those ladies who have not already  enrolled as members are cordially invited to do so at the earliest  opportunity.  Membership rolls'will, be found at  both drug stores.  Mrs.J. B.

Boss, who makes hi.-, home in  Toronto, and who at rived in ramp  last week, will stay in the Poundai)  for peihaps a month, making his head-  quartets in Phoenix,  As is well known, Mi. Boss is one  of the large Shareholder in the Dotnin  ion Copper Co., owning the Brooklyn  group of claims, and his visit heie at  this time is in connection with those  piopcities. But to all iutjiiiiies on the  subject,-Mr. Bow tutns a deaf ear. He  simply has nothing to say as yet. He  was willing this week to talk -on any  and all other subjects with arepiesent-  alive of the Pioneer, but when it came  to'the Dominion Coppci Co. affairs,  he'was as mum as an oyster.  The Dominion Copper (Jo. is what  may be called a close coiporation,  nearly all thest,ock being ownedJjy Win.  McKenzie, !). D.Mann, Robert J affray, James Breen, G. W. Ktimbeigei  and J. E. Ross, there being almost no  small stockholders whatevei. It is the  general belief among well informed  mining men that '.he company owns  some of the very best mining claims in  the Boundary, and the development ol  the last year tinder the management of  Mr. Breen has only  this belief.       \  Lately W. 11. Thomas, engineer lor  the B. C. Coppei Co., owning the  Mother Lode mine and smelter, has  been making an exhaustive examination of the properties of the Dominion  Copper Co., and is yet engaged with  his assistants in securing samples' from  the different piopeities. What the  result of the sampling and examination  will be is not yet known, and it may  be a few weeks before anything is  given out in the matter. Hut there  seems to be no doubt but that some  sort of a d(?al is now on. Mr, Breen  is expected in camp shortly, and after  that'something definite Jmay be divulged.  Mr. Boss was instrumental, three  years ago.-1 or.'11101 e, in getting the  Dominion Coppei deal thiough, by  which the Brooklyn, Idaho, Stem-  Syirider," Montezuma, Standard and  Rawhide owners eithei sold outright  to the new company or took shares in  the coiporation. A year ago, when  Mr. Breen took the mangement and a  vigorous--policy of develo|>ment' was  inaugurated, Mr. Boss was again in  evidence. .The other day when Mi.  Boss arrived in camp, Joe Taylor, who  profited by'the.fust deal, was heard to  remark: "Joe Boss :is in town again,  and Joe always piecedes the coming  of money into this camp."  ATSNOWSHOE  Many Improvements Going on  At This" Mine.  TEN CAR SPUR HAS BEh'N FINISHED  stiengthened  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  Strike in Ibe Jewel Mice.  U was reported this week that a new  body of gold quartz ore was struck in  the Jewel mine of Long Lake camp,  belived to be on the lead that the  prospecting shaft has been sinking on  for some time past. Owing to the rapid  raise in the hill, the lead where now  encountered will give about five hundred feet backs.' 'This greatly enhances  the value of the Jewel mine, which already has a large quantity of ore, said  lo average in value about$12, blocked  out in the old workings. Gilbert Malum,  manager of the mine, left for England  last week.  New Laundry Will Opej.  Next.

" '  0ETTINQ READY FOR HOCKEY.  Arrangements Made for Practice Nights, at  tbe Rink.  With winter now fairly on us, the  hockey enthusiasts are making definite  arrangements for the season's sport.  This week, Corner & Prendergast,  proprietors of the rink, have been getting the structure in shape, and in  another week should be nearly ready  (or business. A committee from the  hockey club met the proprietors  Thursday and arranged that the' club  should have exclusive use of the rink  three nights in the week from 7 to 8  o'clock.  There seems to be no doubt but thai  a Boundary hockey. league will be  organized before long, as there are  rinks or will be in Grand Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix, and many enthusiasts of the game live in each  place. In addition to this, it is mare  than likely that a curling club will be.  established here, as theieare a number  interested in that sport also.  The members of the hockey club  are also talking of giving a dance  about the 20th of December. Mr.  Ewing, the treasurer, says that he is  not too busy to enroll the names ol  any ol those who wish to become members of the club, and he will be glad  to see any such at the Eastern Townships Bank,  U a Sad Story.  Last Wednesday a man named Tat-  ro died at the Greenwood hospital of  typhoid lever, after an illness of several  months. A year ago his wife died  leaving him with eight children, the  oldest 15 years of age. He had been  ranching on Anarchist mountain. The  remains were taken out to his old  ranch home for burial by a kind hearted neighbor, who will also probably  take care of the large family left, the  youngest only twelv. .nonths old.       I  This week the Winnipeg once again  enters the list of shippers over the  Phoenix, branch'of the C. Pi .R.  Walter H'. Aldridge, superintendent  of the'Trail smelter, has been taking  in the smelters of the Boundary this  week.  For the past week the ore treated at  the Granby smelter amounted to 4,724  tons, making a total of'261,539 tons  to date.  Ore is now being hauled from the  Ruby mine at Boundary Falls to the  siding for shipment to the Greemvoud  smelter.  The latest in regard to the date of  when the Granby smelter will be ready  to increase the treatment, is that it  will be on or about January 15th.  A boiler was placed in the Stem-  winder shafthouse this week, and the  mine is being pumped out to permit  of it beiivj; sampled by the Greenwood  smelter people.  J. H.' Wardner, of Grand Forks,  has been awarded a contract for hauling six tons of ore daily from the Al-  hamhra mine, near Nelson, Wash., to  the Granby smelter.  Last week the new assay office at  the Winnipeg, in charge of Mr. Wid-  dowsoli, was completed and is now in  use. It is complete in every detail,  wilh laboiatory, balance room, etc.  Shipments' from the No. ; mine,  Central camp, have been discontinued  for the present, owing to the had roads.  Woik.is being continued in the raise,  drills and in ��� the deepening of the  shaft.  Neil Cochrane, who had charge of  the Oro'Denoro, in Summit camp, ti  thai property suspended operations,  spent several days in Phoenix, this  week, looking over some properties in  ihe north belt with a view to interesting capital.  It is reported that another deal is ot,  for tlie sale of the Standard Pytitic  smelter at Boundary Falls, between  Greenwood and Midway. The Sunset  people are said to be in the field again,  as they have a considerable tonnage  of ore ready for shipment.  The Greenwood smelter owners in  New York have signed a contract for  the treatment of the matte of that concern by the new converter Hearing  completion at the Granby smelter at  Grand Forks. The maite shipments  from Greenwood will now average  from ao to 25 tons per day, which  amount will be doubled in January.  Paul Johnson, manager of the Greenwood smelter, went over to the Forks  late last week to make arrangements  for the sampling of the matte.  Ore Bins With 400 Tons Capacity Will Soon  Be Finished���New Buildings arc Now  About Ready for Use.  Piobably no mining pioperty in the  Boundaiy Ins shown as much piogiess  iu the last two Or three months as the  SnowMioc mine 111 this camp, as far  assuilaeeimpiovenientsaie concerned.  Not only has there been a large lot  of suiface work done in the way  of snipping to get at the laige amount of decomposed oie which is known  to exist iheie, but new buildings have  been put up at a cost* of many thou  sands of dollars for the accommodation  of the men and officials of the Snow-  shoe Gold and Copper mines, Ltd.,  owning the gioup.  Recently the new boaiding house  and the bunk house, so called, were  finished by the contiactois, with accommodations for about 75 men. A  commodious residence for Foreman  Tievot row and office were also built,  while in the couise of a month the residence foi Supeiintendent Astley will  also be completed, the work now being  w'ell advanced. A car load of fnrnitnre  is now on the way foi furnishing these  buildings.  In addition to this the company is  now putting up ore bins 32x12x13  feet in size, with an approximate capacity of 400 tons. These ore bins are  lo< ated on the ten-cat railway spui just  put in by the C. P. R., and it is fully  expected that thcie will be a considerable output of oie as soon as the  smelters can handle it.  Development of the property under-  giound goes on steadily, both at the  too foot level from the main shaft and  in the lower workings of the railway  tunnel, with excellent results. This  week A. J. .McMilJan,, the managing  ditectoi, came over from Rossland  and spent sevctal days at the pioperty  EAGLES' BALL A GREAT SUCCESS.  PHOENIX FIRE DEPARTMENT.  Inspector of Time Locks.  C. A. Fan, inspector of time locks  for Mossman &��� Co., of New York  City, was a visitor in the city on  Thin sda\, inspecting tlie lock on the  safe in the Eastern Townships Bank  here. Mr. F'arr makes these inspections once a year, to see that the locks  are in good working order, the guarantee ol each being for one year. From  Phoenix he went to Greenwood and  Grand Forks.  As an instance of the need of an  inspector, last week the time lock of  the Grand Forks Investment Co.  would not work, and it made all kinds  of trouble for that concern, an expert having finally to be bit light from  Spokane to straighten it out. It was  found that the lock had not been  cleaned for about five years.  - long  long  Bank to Move Next Week.  Some time the latter part of next  week the Eastern Townships Bank  will move from the locatiou occupied  for a year and a half on First street to  the new quarters prepared for thebahk  in the Bank block, just being completed by Messrs. Graves and Williams.  For the present the old fixtures will.be  used, but in a short time new oak  fixtures, which have been ordered in  Toronto, will be installed, when the  I'hoenix branch will have one of the  finest banking rooms in the Boundary,  wiih a large fire proof vault attached.  Recently this hanking concern opened another branch in Quebec, in tlie  town of Windsor Mills., making 15  branches all told. They are all in the  province of Quebec, with the exception ofthe iwo in Biitish Columbia���  at Grand Folks and Phoenix.  Joe Durham is now occupying his  new blacksmith shop-an upper Dominion avenue.

The decoration committee, headed by the worthy piesi-  dent, Victor Monnier, had spent  considerable time and about $150 in  beautifying the hall, which was festooned with electric lights and bunting,  fioirt end to end. The tickets were  unique in their way, being badges with  the insignia and seal of the order  theieon. Nearly 500 of these were  piinted, and most of them were sold.  Mis. Maggie Dungan was awarded the  prize for selling the largest number of  tickets, 160, and Mrs. Abbott secured  second prize, the prizes being $10 and  a $5 "gold pieces.  Pi of. Paul KaufTmann's string  orchestra of three pieces furnished the  music for dancing, aud it was of the  best. About midnight a lunch was  seived at the Miners' Exchange hotel,'  opposite the hall. The committee on  piizcs decided that the award foi being  the best waltzers present should go to  Hairy Aronson and Miss Beigman.  Those on the floor committee were  Messis. McAuliffe, Marshall, Drisoll;  Wallace, Tracy, Shea and Aronson,  and they took every pains to see that  those present had a good time. Among  the large number that attended were  several fiom Grand Forks and Greenwood.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS.  t,ABCL>  One by one the newspapers of the  interior aie waking up on the redistii-  bution question, but the coast press  continues mum on this inipottaut  question.  STRICTLY    BUSINESS.  The secret of business is constant  advertising.  Advertise as though you had confidence in your goods and the people  will have confidence in you.  There is an old sajing that i'ooIs  make fashions and wise men follow  them, but in adveirising it is just the  other way.  - Advei rising prestige is hard to gain,  but very easy to lose. All you have  to do to lose it is to quit advertising  for a little while.  No patt of your business lequiies  more attention than advertising, he-  cause advertising is the most impoitant  part of your business.  Nine times out of ten a business  man who does not advertise hasn't got  anything woith having or seeing. He  is asleep to his and the camp's interest.  Capital comes before advertising.  Theie are plenty.of good things lying  about. All.they'iieed to make them  successful i.s the money with which to  advertise and sell them.  The merchants of Springfield, Mas  sachusetts, have decided that the best  and most,profitable means of business  publicity is the newspaper. In order  that they may be able to buy morw  newspaper space they have agieed "not  to advertise iu any way but in the  regular publications."  .Stores and ollices  the McMillan block.

' It now appears that the ore output  ot the Boundary for the year 1901 will  be about 375,000 tons, against a little  less than 100,000 tons in  igoo.   Up  to date the shipments run up to  325,-  000 tons for this year, and the output  for the balance of the year will  probably be about 50,000 tons.   This will  give   an  average of something over  1,000 tons per day for the entire year,  including Sundays���on which days, by  the way, but little work is done nowadays by the large shipping mines in  this section.  Every ton of this ore' has   been  treated in smelters within theprovince,  and has thus given employment to a  ' laige number of workmen.   While it  is a fact that this ore is nearly all of it  of a low grade, there seems to be no  ' reason to doubt that every ton of it  has yielded a profit to the mine owners.  An increase of 275 per cent, in twelve  months' is certainly one that can  be  - pointed to with pride by residents- of  " the Boundary, as it shows the steady  progress of the district  in lthe most  tangible of ways. The story of the tons  is one that looks well  in' print, and  1 also sounds pleasant to the shareholders  in properties that have contributed to  1 the grand total of the tonnage.  '. There is every reason to believe that  the output for the year 1902 will be a  ' distinct advance over that for this year,  t as both the smelters are actually doubling up their capacity now, and  will  double their output in  January  next.  This being the case, is there any doubt  abo.ut the ore" output for   1902  being  between 860,000 and 1,000,000 tons?  ��� Another interesting fact in this connection, is that nearly 01   quite three-  quarters of the tonnage for this.-year  went out'over the Phoenix branch of  the C. P. R".,. and  two-thirds of the  tonnage originated from,mines in  the  heart of Phoenix. , Is better evidence  wanted of the assurance of one of the  'most populous mining and smelting  communities growing up, here in the  Boundary in the near future?  Le Roi shares in .London have been  going down the line at a lively rate.  It is little wonder, when one reniem-  beis the manipulating going on both  in Rossland and London.  The miserable press service supplied  by the C. P. R. Telegraphs to British  Columbia dailies continues to be as  poor as ever. This is one ol the  advantages of a monopoly.  President Roosevelt is distinctly a  man of his own opinions, as he has  already shown to those disposed to  criticise him. He will probably make  one of the best presidents that the  neighboring republic has ever had.-  If you wish to vote at the municipal  election in January you must see that  your name is on the voters' list before  the first of December, and also that  all taxes of whatsoever kind���not excepting the much evaded road tax���  are paid.

It would not have been easy  to have picked out a worse point for  difficulty in coping with, the flames  than the one where they started. The  buildings happened to be of the un-  plastered variety, and were veritable  tinder boxes. The nature of the location can be understood when it is  remembered that much of the insurance  held in that block had recently been  cancelled.  Notwithstanding the bad locatiqri,  when the fire brigade got to work the  members; aided by a splendid water  system, had the fire' under control in a  comparatively short' time, both hose  *,companies responding with the least  ' possibledelay to the alarm given by  the mine whistle.  Up to the present the insurance  companies, in requiring high premiums  could readily justify the demand by  pointing to the entire lack of fire protection. But this is no longer the  case, and the inspectors should in all  fairness take into consideration that  we i.ow luve an excellent water supply,  with plenty of pressuie, together with  the necessary paraphernalia to fight  files.   Had it not been for the new'  Close upon the Vancouver News-  Advertiser's announcement that pei-  mission had been requested by the  lieutenant-governor to fill his cabinet  at once and meet the legislature at the  usual time, came the denial of the  story by the Colonist, the premier's  personal organ. The Colonist should  know, but the question is: Does it ?  The Victoria Post and the Victoria  Outlook, two bright weeklies, have  combined under the ti' le of the Post-  Outlook. The former was noted for  its opposition lo the present government and the C. P. R., and the latter's  strong point Wds the Mongolian ques  tion; It is said that David B. Bogle,  an old Rosslander, will edit the com  bination.  E. J. Smith, secretary of the British  Columbia Society lor the Prevention  of Cruelty to Animals, has been forming ; branches of the society in the  interior lately. . While there it probably less need of the society in the  mining districts than in the more  populated coast lowns, still the work  is an excellent one, and should be  encouraged.  Golden riding with a population of  1,938, secured appropriations this year  for public works amounting to $61,400,  while Rossland riding, with a population of 7,603, had an appropriation  for the same kind of work amounting  to'$32,025. But then, Hon. W. C.  Wells, minister of lands and works,  lives in Golden riding, and it is no  wonder the newspapers of that section  think Mr. Wells is just about right.  'Premier Dunsmuir expects to take  a trip south shortly. With Mr. Wells  in Ottawa and Mr. Prentice in Eng-  tand, the government of British Colum  bia will then be represented by the one  remaining minister���Hon. I). M.  Ebeits, acting premier, acting president  of the executive council, acting head  of the council of public instruction,  Attorney-General, acting minister of  finance, acting minister of education,  acting minister of mines, acting chief  commissioner of lands and works, acting provincial secietary, and acting  minister ofagriculture.    What a farce !  ABOUT GREENWOOD SMELTER.  Will  Have   Capacity   Doubled   la January  Next.  A Greenwood correspondent sends  out the following: Some time in Jan-  eary the second blast furnace for the  local smelter will be ready to be "blown  in" and the capacity of the plant  doubled. With the two furnaces in  operation about 900 tons of Ore and  iuel will be handled daily. The  smelter was blown in Febuary 18th ot  the present year. l'Yom that date to  October 31st it has tieated 91,715  tons. To come down to months, the  last two will suffice to give an idea ol  the daily tonnage treated. Duiing  September the total amounted to  11,823.10ns, or a daily average of 393  1-10 tons. For October the total was  12,660 tons, being an average of 408  tons per day.   ,  It was on the 18th of October that  Paul Johnson,' M. E., manager of the  smelter, believed he established a  world's record for a single blast furnace of the size in use here. On that  day 504 tons of ore, coke and slag was  run through. Of this amount 450  tons was ore. Considering that the tur  nace was designed for a nominal cap  acity of 225 tons each 24 hours, the  daily averages quoted above are most  creditable.  Look on the Bright Side.  You get out of life just about what  you are. If you smile, people smile  back at you. Il you frown, vou will  find plenty of peisons to do the same.  You can have sunshine or dark clouds,  as you will, says an exchange.  A sunny disposition around a business establishment is a God-send. It  is the best kind of an advertisement. It  does more to draw trade and to hold  it than most anything else. The business of today isn't the seizing of an  individual and. compelling him lo buy  your gooJs, as was once the idea of  merchandising.. On the contrary, it is  making your display of whatever commodity you may manufactuieor handle  so attractivei��Hid offering it under such  advantageous conditions that the customer will do the initiative and you  simply meet his wants.  Trickery of any kind doesn't pay in  business today, whatever it may have  done in former days.  The man who dosn't treat a child  with due consideration, and in whose  place of business the toddling infant  can't buy to.as good advantage as the  full giown person, doesn't unaerstand  the first principle of business.

Compare Favorably with Those of Colorado.
A glance through the list of dividend-
paying precious metal mines in. the
Western states and territories shows
that the mines of British Columbia
average fajrly well with those of Colorado, which is one of the greatest
precious metal mining states in , the
Union. Solar this year, the precious
metal mining companies of Colorado
have paid $3,887,757 in dividends on
a share capital of .$61,266,667. This
is 6.3 per cent, on the capital. When
the fact is taken into consideration
that two companies (the Portland and
jStiatton's Independence) paid$1,507,-
504 of the dividends on a share capital of $8,500,000, the showing made
by Colbrado is not as good as chat
made by British Columbia. /V.n.d,
whrit is niqre, for every rm'ning company in Colorado that pajd a dividend
(his year, two havq not paid a cent.
Vet people will say that British Columbia makes a. poor showing when   com-
Tieir Names Always Fonnd in  tbe  Local
.   Newspaper. •,
If you want to find out who the live
business men of any town ate you have
only to peiuse the local newspaper and
you will find '.heir names, says the
Midway Advance. Anyone carrying
on a business of any kind, no matter
how small, in a town where a newspaper is published will, il alive to his
own interests, advertise his 'business.
Take the successful business man and
ask him to what he attributes his pros-
pertiy, and in jiine cases out of ten the
question will meet with the same reply:
To advertising.. Thousands, 011 the
other hand, who have at some lime in
their lives been engaged in business,
but have been unsuccessful, can attribute their fa|Uie to the fact that
their names never decorated the
advertising colums ofa newspaper.
There is a time in the history of
every town when it may not be necessary to advertise, that is'when a town
is so small that it only contains one
business house of each kind, but this
is only in exceptionally new places,
and most of the towns of even this
comparitively new piovinco have passed
that stage, and the business man ol
almoot any town finds that he is not
the only pebble on. the beach, that
" There are others." Let once competition be engaged in, in any line of
business and it is the utmost folly for
anyone of them to expect to be successful without advertising.
The local newspaper is the best
means by which the public is made
acquainted with the names of the live
business men of rJ place; of course you
will find men in nearly every town,
who call themselves business men,
that do not advertise, but they are
dead as far as the business world is
concerned. In this age of keen competition in every conceivable line of
business, such people have to giye
way, sooner or'later, tq men of busi-
nesu method? who are abreast of the
P. Hums, the meat  king of West
Kootenay, and the man who advertises

Mr. Smith Curtis desires the Pioneer  to state that the interview with him in  the issue of 9th inst. is inaccurate in  stating that Hon. Mr. Wells relused to  take off the reserve on the C. it  \V. land reserve for "private reasons,"  the fact being that Mr. Wells refused  to state his leasons, although he .said  he had one. Also in stating that John  Houston, M. P. P. for Nelson, voted  against redistiibution in the House;  the fact being that he voted for it the  first session, but last session he lacked  the courage to do so, but showed his  hostility to it, and his implied  acquiescence in the Dunsmuir policy  of refusal bv shirking the vote.
