Hon. j  Mr. Cotton interposed that the  tenor of his interjection had been i  misunderstood, but Mr. Martini  continued his attack, concluding  Wholesale -'i"<l IH.eis.il  thunderbolt dropped into the  arena of parliamentary debate  yesterday, oil the closing afternoon of the week, and the long  looked for duel between Finance  Minister Cotton, and his sworn  ioe 'Fighting Joe''Martin, was on  in earnest. The subject of debate was Mr. Heigeson's resolution of recommendation to the  Federal' Oovornirient that tho  naturalization of Chinese and  Japanese should be re.-trie ted or  prohibited, but the (pieslion before Ihe House had nothing to  'do with the dramatic episode  that    lilled   the   lohbv   with   the'  ister dare not. go back to Colorado where he was charged with  the grossest personal misdemeanors, and giving notice of a  motion ior the appointment of a  special committee lo enquire into  the gross criminal misconduct of  the Finance Minister.  The episode is the talk of ''ihe]  town, anci'seemingly. hi judge by !  .the news now coining in. oJ the:  Province. It is by no means'  over, for the fued is likely to be;  renewed on Wednesday next, |  when tio��� motion now being pre-1  pared of which Mr. Martin gave,  notice will be  present, d.

Mr. Martin had debated  the resolution,   holding" that   it  was of a class of which he generally  disapproved���holding   that  1he legislature should restrict itself to the business constitution-';  ally referred to it by the British  North   American   Act,���in  such  , /burning questions as that of the  threatening Chinese and   Japanese competition if would be  well  for British Columbia to  lose   no  opportunity     of     pressing'   the  views and wishes   of  the   Province forward.oin a hope of  eventually   educating   the  whole  of  Canada     to     a   comprehensive  knowledge of the  facts  in  rein  tion to the working-out of  British Columbia's destiny.    In illus-  ,   n-ation he cited the experience of  , ' Ma��itoba on   the  railway  (pies-  lion during his tenure-as  attor-  ney-general-of the prairie   province. . The people of the Doinin-,  'ion did not  at   first   understand,,  but the insistan'ce of the  united  province on its position had   finally won for Manitoba the  sym-  - pa thy and supporl   of  the" eastern   provinces,   aud    victory   at  c length   crowned   the   provincial  campaign of agitation   and  edu-'  cation.     While he was speaking  Finance Minister Cot Ion   swung  lazily in his chair, and carelessly observed (sotto voice) that ho  failed to see wherein this  effected the question before Ihe House  and that it 'was  not  difficult   to  comprehend how Manitobans regarded Mr. Martin's career  and  actions in view of the manner of  that, gentleman's departure from  that scene.  Such an opening was'  apparently just'what Mr. Martin  had longed for in order that   he  inighibring his heaviest artillery  lo bear   upon   his  ex-colleague,  for inducing' him   to   repeat   his  remark  (the   purport  of   which  only he had at lirst caught).    He  \ accused the Finance Minister of  using   cowardly   tactics   in   the  debate, and induced Mr. (JlilTord  his right band neighbor  lo   propose a, verbal amendment,   based  his retort upon this motion.    IK-  depreciated personalities in politics,     lie declared   thai   he   had  never descended   lotli.il method  of warfare   voluntarily,   bul   as;  .sorted lhat now ho had   been   at   j  lacked he proposed   lo   reply   ini  kind and show   no   mercy.      Ilej  lel'l Manitoba under no cloud   oJ'j  dishonor.     He had frequently re-.  visited the province   -hire   com-'  ing to British Columbia'ih; 1H97..  He still had' large property  in  Aerests there.    Ho was at .liberty  to go.or come  in   that  province  "as freely as in British. Columbia.  He"never, had resource to locking  ���   '���" . ���   ... . ��� '"  his clamoring creditors ma room  while, he esoai'od I'i'io'ih them, 'on  a, freight train between twosiitis.  .Ho could,' go back to 'Manitoba!  when lib chose a ml without' fear  of arrest, he had never, been  he.ha.d .never been  de.iied   tlie  Minister  his i when' completed.  The mining industry of Fort  .Steele alfords a striking illus-,'  tration oft he, forced adoption .of '  mining to circumstances,"and its |  activity in the past year, and!  the present situation, in the face L  of adverse market conditions,, is  'a proof oi'the point.that 'we do-  sire to make. viz. -'That mining  as a legitimate business will be  capable of greater profits in tlrs  district, than any section or legion on the face of the earth.  ���+      -X      -.t       ' I  I 1 I 1  Wo'hope,   and ,our  hope-, a;.A  based  on' the   logic   of  cireum  stances,   that   British   Columbia  and   especially   the   Fort Steele-  district, may be eventuallv transformed   from   an   ore 'shipping  district, ,vto   a    smeller   canter.
