This involves the  sorting of the mails on board the  steamships so as to be ready for  listribution when they arrive tit  their destination. The system  will be the same as that in use;  on the American railroad-cars.  Despite the great benefits to be  derived from this innovation it  was brought about only after  Ijng negotiation between 'the  posfa' authorities of this country  aud Great. Britain.

Bowser (Vancouver)  censuring- the action of the Dominion authorities at Ottawa iu  interfering with /educational  matters ' in the, , Northwest  Autonomy bill. If Mr. Bowser  desired to place the Opposition  on the horns of a dilemma, if he  desired to expose their pitiful  weakness to the uusympathising  gaze iof a curious 'and derisive  public, if he wished the Liberal  [.party in British Columbia ' to  prove by their own actions that  .they lacked the courage to defend their own friends and benefactors, and a.t the same time  had 'not onoiurh backbone or  patriotism to support their own  much-boasted 'principles ��� tlien  Mr. Bowser's wishes were cor  La iii 1 y fully gratified.  Certainly the member for Vancouver, iii the brilliant speech  he made iu support ol" his resolution, did not spare either the  Liberal party or< Sir Wilfrid  Laurier. In dealing'with tho  silver-tongued Liberal leader, he  employed with great effect that  neverfailing weapon the "deadly  parallel", reading to the House  copious extracts from Sir Wilfrid's great speech in 1S9G on  the Manitoba School 'Question,  juid, ' by , contrasting his pasl  utterances and his present  actions, condemning him out of  his own mouth. He painted in  scathing terms the attitude of  the Liberal party throughout  Lanada. shouting for provincial  rights when if suited their game  crushing and over-riding those  same   provincial    rights     when.  that party-has fallen from everv  instinct of decent manhood '  The mover of the resolution  sat down and.the Speaker put  ���the question, He got i:o reply.  Noi" was there need tor a  division." None but the mover  spoke to the resolution, and the  House placed itself on record,  without a division, as being; unalterably opposed tO' the Dominion Government's methods of administering the affairs of the  country.  The estimates were brought  down on Tuesday afternoon a,nd  the Hon. R. O. Tatlow, Minister  of Finance, delivered his Budget  Speech the same day. The  speech, like the statement itself,  was remarkable for being uttfer-  ly de'yoid of those flowers of  rhetoric with which weaker men  and weaker Governments, often  seek to enhance the value; of  their successes. ,or ,t.o minimize  the extent of their failures, in  the, public eye. It was a vevy  plain, unadorned sctfing-forfh of  the present financial position of  the. province, wifhoul any  attempt to place an undue 'value  on future possibilities or lo misrepresent existing . 'facts.  Throughout the speech was  every evidence of careful painstaking endeavor, and of a con-'  scienfious and by no means unsuccessful attempt to do the  very best with the material in  hand. The Minister's utterances  in f.sho'i't, wore~iVTloiie and of a  nature to still further increase  that belief in their ability to administer , advantageously the  aIVairs of this province which the  preseut Government has already  instilled into the people.  [Lis impossible in an article of  this   limited  description,   to   do  more than glance at the Finance  Minister's speech.-     He   pointed  out that there Had been, for   the  first  time  in   the  history of the  province,   a    small   surplus   of  some ��27.000 for the  fiscal   year  ending June JlOth., 190-1. and that  another surplus was  anticipated  ior the current fiscal year.     But  a   small  deficit   of  some   five or  money, place or power  stood   to I six thousand dollars must, be an-  be gained by so doing. ''licipa'ted���-though   noi   an   abso-  It was not a pleasant speech to  lute  certainty���for   the   coming  listen to and what made it worse i fiscal year covered   by   the  esli-  was the sullen silence   in   which ' unites just brought down     This  perity. improving business condition^ and progress. In spite  of adverse comment of critics of  taxation, the most encouraging  reports were coming to hand  from all our mining centres. ,We  are becoming more and more  accustomed to hoar of dividends  heir) si declared, and advices from  London indicated that capiial  was showinir a _ tendency once  more to seek investment in the  province".  Mr. Stuart Henderson (Ash  croft) is rather sorry lie spoke.  True he carried his point so far  as the wearing of wigs is concerned, but it was at the cost of  such merciless ridicule that he  counts his.victory a very Pyrrhic  one. Why, they are calling him  '���Barber" in the House now. and  scarcely   a .member  gets up .but  has something to say   about  the  ���- *- ''  Ashcrolt gentleman's interest in.  wigs. There are, several circumstances, it may be remarked,  connected with the bringing in  of this extraordinary-and._ undignified piece of freak Legislation  on 'thq part of the Liberals  which are probably better not  discussed here. At all events,  the Ashcroft barber has committed political suicide very  thoroughly.  ���Possibly Mr. Henderson  realized this himself on Thursday, when he opeued the evening session by continuing the debate on the Budget. The appalling fact must then have diuvncd  upon him that the House refused  any longer-to lake'him seriously.  After a lew criticisms Lol the  style1of 1'iai.ory employed, by the  M "mister ,of Finance, .

The Coal Company has determined upon building a largo  reservoir on the lull to the cast  of the city for tho .purpose of  guaranteeing an,ample supply of  water for the coke ovens. Chief  Engineer Wright and his staff  located the site Jhis week and  the work of building the reservoir was started al once to have  it completed by the middle of  April.  The reservoir will be at an  elevation of about ISO feet above  the city. This will give a pressure of over .eighty pounds to  the square, inch at the ovens and  incidentally to all mains in ihe  city now supplied hy the Klec-  trie Light and Power Co.

At Trail onty one stack has  been kept in operation, and it is  reported that in a few clays the  fires in this stack will be put  out.  iii each instance the .reason of  the close down is failure of the  ore ts up ply.  The supply from the Slocan  mines has fallen ajvav below the  estimate made at the time the St  Eugene, company applied for  permission to  export  a  portion  of their ore and   yet   obtain   the  �����  government bounty thereon.  Mr. Blackstbck undertook to  make up the difference, required  to' keep the two home smelters  busy, after, taking into account  the estimated supply from all  the other silver-load properties!  Having 'ascertained, what  amount would likely be.required  from them to" make up the difference referred to. the St. Eugene  company contracted to supply a  large amount to European smelters. In March last 3100 tons of  concentrates wore shipped to  Eu'ropo,' and (>00 tons to Trai'  and Nelson combined. Each  month's returns- show that the  St. Eugene has supplied more  than half of the silver-lead ore  sent,  to the home smelters.-.    ���-'  The contract made by tlie St.  Eugene..will it is said, expire in  June, Tint until that time, the two  local smelters will have' to wait  until a sufficient amount of ore  accumulates'at the plants'before  lighting tip the lead stack fires  once more.  Just what arrangements wore  finally concluded between the  silver-lead mines and the^smelt-  ers. at the time of the proposition from the St. Eugene to export ore was discussed^ has���  never been made public. It is  understood, however, that' with  the amount of ore. the mine  owners, other than the St.  Eugene, said they could and  would produce, there was no  likelihood of any scarcity'of oz*e.  Beyond any question had this  not been the case different arrangements would have been ���  come to as the expressed desire  of all interested was that tne  lead plants in B.C. should'be  kept busy right along. The  .figures upon which the output of  the silver-lead mines, other than  the St. Eugene, wasbased have  never beeu' given out aud itds  not possible at the moment to  say where the great falling off  has been. Tt was only stated  vo.v.erday in general terms that  the actual shipments had fallen  very short of what was expected  Manager Cronin is expected  here during the week and possibly some furl her light may oe  iitruwn on the siioject. meantime  ihe lead slacks will be closed  down.

The     chief     amusement    of  Thursday,'diowever, was provided  earlier   iu ,the day   by   Mr.  Murphy   (Cariboo), who   made a  very  amusiug speech." -Had he  refrained   from     insulting    the  poverty     and     misfortunes   of  others, his remarks would  have  been most enjoyable.     Butrlhe  true   ^Liberal   contempt   for.the  poor got the better of his wisdom  when he took to  discussing  the  Lillooet election.      lie had not,  he said, been able to comprehend  the Government's victory  there,  until he came across the   following paragraph in  the  report  on  Agriculture for 1902:  "Tt is just possible that the  disease among the cattle on the  west side of the river is  'indignant catarrh*. Since writing to you last 1 have learned  that the disease has been more  or less virulent there for several  years past. Want of any reasonable care, starvation in the  winter from lack of food and  water, in breeding by little  starved runtsof bulls,and gcneri J  laziness and dirt on the part of  the owners are bound lo establish disease".  This, said the witty Liberal  from Cariboo, he look to be an  accurate description of the  Lillooet electors.
