Considerable ore will be shipped from the Swansea mine near  Windermere this summer. Ii is  said that S.OOU or '3,000 sacks  were made ready during' the  winter and hauled to ihe landing.'

C,   April   f>.���  There'was a red hot, time at  the  Liberal convention today.     The  Martin    contingent    are   determined lo oust from , the  convention'all prominent Liberals   that  are in opposition to Martin. The  credential committee are having  a   .stormy   session,   kicking   and  disputing       about       accepting  proxies.     The.  Martin   men  are  in a majority on  the  committee,  and the whole thing may bust up  in a grand lree.for, all row.   The  convention is atsixos and sevens  all   in  a   muddle,   and    has   adjourned until tomorrow morning.  It is evident  that  E.   P. Davis  and all other proininenl,Liberals  in opposition fo Martin,  are  not  wanted at the convention.  ���  -All  ', The Paystone Group.  f    Work on the  Paystone  group  on Horse Thief  creek,   Winder-  Uv inere'district,,  has   been  carried  ���}' on all winter iii a desultory way,  ['--'but  this   summer   the   owners.  |V Messrs.

Shipments  '' 'will commence in a short time.  4  ���    "''��� ,��� '       " "  It is learned that work will be  [presumed on' the   Empire   in , a  %hort time. ';  . There is no stopping of work  on the-Black Bear mine near  Kimberley. It is looking better  every day, and as soon as shipments commence it will come  rapidly to the front.  The Dupout on Boulder creek-  is showing up better than ever.  The force will bo largely increased soon as Manager Uan-  inglon returns.  Lt is expected that a large  amount of work will bo done on  the Mig Chief lliis summer.  There is a big .syndicate back of  the cntroprise.  Tho gold output of the l\ Ion-  dyke for the1 current year it is estimated will roach ^O.OdO.oOO.  Late advices from the Sullivan  mine arc to tho effect that the  ore bodies are showing up better than ever. Shipments will  commence soon as the roads are  in good condition.  The Tontine group  of mines  word     has     been     re-  as      to      the      opera-  No  coived  tious on the Star group of claims1  the property of the Bull- River  Mining Company. Mr. Kesler,  the manager, is now in Spokane  and will be here in a short time.  The Political Situation.  Specliil io Tun Phosi'Ki-toh.  Victoria, B. C, April 4.  the interest in the presentpoliti-  cal situation centers around Joseph Martin, Premier. How long  tho'title is lo be given him,  though, is a matter, of doubt.  'This afternoon as I write there  is a rumor,,although' Mr., Martin  indignantly denies it, that the  Lieutenant-Governor has given  him until tomorrow to fill the  two remaining portfolios in his  cabinet���oi;,exit Martin.  Although the elect ions will not  be held until June the candidates  are declaring themselves on all  sides. J. Stuart Yates the new  commissioner of lauds and works  announces today that he will run  for South Victoria and not'South  Nanaimo as last year. In North  Victoria".!.. P. Booth' will1" ha,ye  in opposition to him in the interest of Martin, one W. H. Smith,  ex-gardener at Ross, Bay cemetery in Victoria', which position  he was asked to resign because  of a habit of sowing salt on the  graves whose grass was sown by  other gardeners.  IncEsqnimalt there is quite a  crowd of candidates. Tho old  reliable Higgins is still on deck,  and Donald Eraser is still holding pro-Martin meetings, ��� and  W. G. Eden, who has for the most  time been employed with a pick-  on the streets in ^this vicinity,  comes out in the interest of labor. W. Dickie announces'him  self at Duncanson with a platform that agrees with that of  Marl in. but opposes the Premier  ou personal grounds. The situation in Victoria and vicinity is  but a duplication of what' exists  elsewhere.  As to .whether the coming  election will be run on party  lines or not. that question is- yet  to be decided. Both Conservatives a,nd Liberals in Victoria  have met to consider this point  .several times, but have been unable to reach any decision. Both  are noi decided. The delegate*  elected to go to the provincial  convention at New Westminster  by the eleven local Liberals, go  unpledged. The       Nanaimo  Liberals have declared for party  lines. Colin S. Ryder a( store  keeper of Coniox.-has entered  Martin's cabinet as Finance  Minister. The feeling here is  that Martin is simply filling his  cabinet to hold on lo oflice until  the election, knowing that ho  will be defeated. The Liberals  elected-10 delegates to the Vancouver convention, Ihe majority  being opposed lo Martin.  the mountains, and it will not be  lomr before capital will come in  and exploit the country. One of  the best posted mining men in  West Kootenay said a few days  ago:       -     ,  If  there   was  such  showings  about Rossland as you have here  in the vicinity of Port Steele,   it  would  cause a  genuine   excitement", and this seems to be  the  opinion  of   everyone   who   has  visited the country,   they  carry  away with them a good   impression of the district,    lt is acoun  try of marvellous resources, and  wherever     intelligent      mining  has been carried on   there  have  been no failures, as  may  be  instanced in  the  Sullivan,   North  Star, St. Eugene, Old  Abe,   Es-  tella, Big Chief, Dupont, Chicka-  muu    Stone,    and   many   other  good properties.     It will not be  long   before   greater    attention  will   be   paid   to   thi.s   country  than    ever     before.'       Mining  men.     mining    'engineers' and  exjiorls     will   ,  be    ' on       the  ground  to   see   for   themselves  what the  country ���has  to  offer,  and will not go away disappointed.    There is-a great future  for  South East Kootenay, and those  who remain on the ground must  profit by the influx  of mine  investors tor this the last and, best  mineral section of the Province.

'  The Old Abe.   '  ii  The active work which has  been done on this property during the past winter is, fast iiiajc-  ing it a mine of more than ordinary merit. Tlie workings have  been in ore ever since work was  commenced four months' ago.  The lower funnel is now in about  ^00 Loot and a crosscut at this  point has been run about ^7feet,  and the load here between,walls  is 24 feet, with an average width  .of-four feet of ore. The tunnel  will be extended 100 feet further,  a winze sunk and an upraise  iii ado to prove the property. The  runningjOf Ihe upper tunnel was  abandoned'some time ago in order to prove the property at  greater depth. it was run 7S  feet iu a six foot lead with three  feet, of ore.  After the work'now'planned is  completed a tunnel will lie run  on the vein about L'OO foot lower  down the hill. There is cvovy  encouragement to go on with, the  work', and the company controlling the property have ample  means. People who have visil-  ed the properly express the  opinion thai it will make a mine,  and that the work done to date  is showing up in fine shape.  Mafeking-   Situation    Critical--Plum-  mer Has Another Reverse.  Siiocl.il to The Pkospku-iok  London, April 0.���The situation in Mafeking is most critical.  A desperate sortie was not only  repulsed by the Boers, but Col.  Plummer has again met with' a  severe reverse.  The town of Bloomfoutein i.s  quiet. ' The fact that the Boers  have occupied the waterworks  has had no appreciable effect so  far. The railway is still in working order. Boer patrols hav  been seen within ten'miles of  Bloemfonteiii. ��� The British  troops are cheerful and anxious,  to get into action. The drought  still continues.  Loudon, April 0.���TluPBloem-  foniein correspondent of the  Daily Mail says General Clements division 0,000 strong, has  arrived from tho south, and has  encamped live miles'north of the  city, after a continuous -march  for a fortnight.  An important engagement lasting several hours was fought  yesterdtiy afternoon al Bushman's Ko'p. between the Boers  and British troops. The war  office issued no hews yesterday,  and allowed but little to come  through from the correspondents  at Bloemfonteiii. General Clements is disposing of'his forces  so as to guard against any surprise attack, which, althougli  improbable, is evidently regarded as not impossible, judging  from the preparations now being made by Loi;ci Roberts. -  Brandfort. Free States,   April  2.���The   burghers  who  are   returning from  the  souih  of   the  Saiuiaspost ambush;'furnish 'in-'  tercsting   details  oi   the  occurrence.    It appears that when .the  first  retreating   British   wagon  entered,the  drift, the  ainbusca-  ders shouted "hands-up", removed'the  officers  and   let a   cart  through.    This process  was   repeated   several  times  until   the  wagons arrived in a  bunch   and  the ruse was discovered,   and   a  disorderly fia'ht followed.  cros-cut the ledge. The hang'  ing wall is porphyry and the  footwall slate. The ore comes  up at point of contact. Some  assays gave the following results: ^ 8S ounces of silver, ^in  gold, and some copper. The  claim is only iM miles from the  railroad and about two- miles  from the Empire- mine.  But little news has been received from Tracy creek during  the past week. The work is going steadily on in tho Montana,  Estolla, John L. and the other  well-known claim.s in that vicinity. Tracy will be a lively camp  this .summer.  '  , - _  The    Columbian   Comedy   Company.  Charles S. McKay, advance  agent of the Columbian Comedy  Company, arrived in town on  Tuesday. His company gave  one performance at the Opera  Bouse last evening, and another  will be given,this evening with  an en tire'change of programmes.  "'      Railway Notes.  Over !I00 men will be employed on the Balfour extension of  the Crow's'Nest railway.  The steamer Alberta came up  to Bonner's Ferry on Sunday  last. The Alberla -will make  regular trips to Kuskanook for  a couple of weeks, or until the  railroad is completed and ready  for business.  'The-Canadian  Pacific railway  will put on the Imperial Limited'  again    this   summer,    and   will  make the same lime namely   100  hours to the Coast.   '  '" L -  On the Wrong Claim.  From what we can' learn, an  incorporated mining company,  doing business not a thousand  miles from the city of "Beautiful Cranbrook", have been doing extensive work* in developing a claim not included in iheii;  purchase. A shaft seventy feet  deep has been sunk in the adjoining property, and it is showing up well. All the work done  during the past whiter has beeu  done on the wrong chiim. Bob  McKeenfan. Ihe owner of the  ground in which the shaft has  been sank, says that he is much  indebted to the good people who  have so kindly developed his  property.  Mr. McKeeman. who is responsible for the above statement, says that he is the owner  of the claim on which said work"  was done. If this is so it shows  a lack of interest, and a want of  somebody fo superintend the  working of the company's properties.  From Skookum Chuck.  A. W. Bleasdcll returned from  Skookum   Chuclc   on- Thursday  bringing   with Miim   some - fiuo  sari,pies of ore  from   the   Deadfall claim,- in which he  is interested.   r The work'on the Deadfall has beeircontinuecl all winter.    The  tunnel   is  now   in   100  feet, aud the face shows  about  ���i\   feet of   coppoib ore   and   is'  widening out as tho tunnel   pro-  ���UTC.sses.    Near the mouth of the  tunnel a shaft has been 'started,  .which i.s in ore from the surface.  The lodge where the work- is being done is eight feet, wide.   The  ore chute seems  to be  stronger  at depth.      No assays have been'  made recently, but judginsr from  the samples it  will  go  high   in  copper.   ' Along one of the walls  is a seam of ore varying in thickness from one inch  to  one   foot  which   .stronyly   resembles   the  product of the Republic mine.  Mr. Uloasdell isrmuch pleased  with the appearance of the properly, and is of tho opinion that it  will prove a biirproposition with  further development. He is interested in the adjoining property of which the surface showings arcs excellent. The work of  development will be continued  all .summer.  The Coming- Boom.-  In the whole Province <>f British Columbia there is no section  which,promises more' than   East  Kootenay.     There is mineral in  Sullivan slock is still advancing. Investors are coining fo  the conclusion that they have  overlooked a good thing and are  now trying to get in at   the   low  prices which have been prevailing. But this will be impossible  as from now on lucre will be a  steadjr advance, and when shipments commence "the advance  will be  more, rapid.     There  is  comparatively but little stock on lare about: 15 feet, apai  the .market. ��� intention to run  iu  "  On Sand Creuk.  (J. S.

A.   P.,  for   no  one  has  employed   the   methods   of   the  great detective of fiction to more  purpose.    'When he was in India  Baden-Powell-used to make deductions   from   overy-day    incidents a regular practice iu order  that, he might complete his training as successful  cavalry  scout.  Here is.au example of the method   Colonel   Baden-Powell   employs in. scouting.   ; Riding, one  day across an open  grass,,.plain  in    Matabeleland    he    suddenly  noticed that the''grass  had   been  trodden   down..    Following  up  the track he soon found   that  it  was--  the   ,'.'spoor"    of    several  women and  boys  going   in  the  direction of the enemy. '.

The  Chancellor of the Exchequer estimates the deficit in the revenue  for this year and   next  at   ��00,-  000,000.    This deficit is to be met  by increasing  the   taxes  to  tho  extent of ��12,317,000, by   taking  .��4,040,000 from tho sinking fund  for terminable annuities and   by  borrowing $43,000,000.    The  income tax is to be, increased  one  half, making it a.shilling in   the  pound,' or  five  per, cent;   2d.   a  pound is to be added  to, the ��� tea  duty,   (id   a  gallon   to   that   on  spirits, ' a  shilling  a  barrel   on  beer; 4d a pound on tobacco,   (3d  a pound on cigars, unci a shilling  on  the .stamp   tax   on    certain  brokers' contracts.    It is a  curious fact that while tea is  taxed  sugar escapes'; for  the  average  British workman tea is as much  a necessary of flife as sugar..    ', '  Within   Three   Miles  200 Mining Claims.

April   51.���  Mearing    that   the   waterworks  were deserted the correspondent  of the Reuters Telegram Agency  rode forward   today.     Arriving  at the crest of a hill a volley was  fired at him, and a moment later  a man appeared at the top'of the  crest, calling on him to stop tiring and saying that he  was  unarmed and desired to Ualk  with  him.,, The correspondent discovered that the 'man was an "-American, who  declared ;that   he'accompanied   the Boers only as a  sight-seer.'   *lic said that never  during his1 whole life-had he witnessed such magnificent pluck as  that shown by the British troops  on Saturday.  ' He asserted .that  not only himself but  the  whole  Boer " army   were     profoundly  touched with admiration at their  jjallani behaviour.     ���'      ;  Il appears that the Boers never doubted their ability to capture the whole British force, and  were dumbfounded at the courage displayed, and the masterly  way in which the force was able  to escape from the death 'trap.  The man refused to give any information regarding the Boer  forces or their movements, but  ,it appears that the present  force wiis-dotaohod from K'ron-  stad. joined the Lady brand force  and again divided north. The  light was marked by many acts  of individual courage.  According to the lestimony of  eye witnesses tflie Boors shot  some prisoners, but the confusion was great aud the firing was  proceeding from all directions,  and the Boers tiring upon the  cavalry, near which were their  own men.

A Splendid Idea.  ��� It   was  an   American   subject  Robert Choale. of Boston, Mass.,  who first, through Lhe .Montreal  Star, suggested the popular patriotic fund taken up by the  children of Canada and the United States, and now receiving  such favor all over the world.

Then there is a paltry  ��2;"i,000,000 in gas, tramway and  ielegraph companies: ��11,000,-  000 in foreign and colonial banks,  ��270,000,000 in private investment, and iM..sr)0,000.000 floating around .that no one knows  just what to do with and which  is seeking investment.
