Martin wa.s  as much discussed���and cussed--  as the address itself.    Nearly all  the  speakers  on   either  side of  the  house .referred   to  the  late  Attorney-General, probably ,the  that il be read clause by  clause.

For forty five minutes  the Opposition members protested.-all saying that they  had not  heard of such a decision.     They  quoted rulings and  past actions  of the house, but still the speaker refused to consider their  protests, and while the leaders were  engaged    in   looking   up   more  authorities he submitted his ruling to the house, with the result  and   their  majority  of  two. the  government supported   him, and  with such action  the, opposition  were left helpless.    No freedom  was allowed them to discuss   the.  GRILLING OF COLONEL  BAKER.  A Bit of  Choice   Reading1   in   Relation to Purchase of Coal  Lands.  From OurOwc-Corrfspomlem.  Hon. Col.

Indignant at the action oft the  speaker, Mr. Pooley rose  in his; place and asked the  members ��� of7 the' .opposition  to withdraw in a body to show  their disapproval of the action  of the sjleaker. ' Calmer councils prevailed however, and the  members remained.   ,  h The leader of the opposition  protested, and said that there  was no'other course than submit to the'tyranny, the opposition would;place themselves on  record' to condemn this, -tirst, legislature in the Empire, which re  fused;to respect the rights of  the minority. He held that the'  ^government would be held up  to- scorn and the speaker condemned as one .who would not  protect the rights of the minority. ,.    His  action   was   without  that gentleman received because  of the doings of that gentleman  and his colleagues to further  their own interests.���"Those of  Fort Steele   were   unheard, of",  1      r  and neither did ''Beautiful Cranbrook" come in for a .mention,���  from Mr. McPherson. senior  member for Vancouver City.

On Thursday some  excitement  was   caused   in    the  galleries by, the reading'of a  telegram from C. H. 'Hand,   maua-  irer of the Payne mine, to  F. * S.  Hussey, superintendent  of  Provincial Police, asking that imnie-  didte police assistance be sent to  that  mine  to   protect    life   and  property,   as  it   was  feared the  strikers   would    make    trouble.  The day-previous u strong   petition''bearing the signatures of i'o  of    the ��� larger .-mining   corporations,   was   presented   to    the  house,   praying for the repeal of  the law, because of which the expense of carrying on work in the  mines  at   present  operated had  become  burdensome  and    un remunerative.    Tho government i.s  thought to have this   law   under  consideration and   there   i.s   lalk  of a commission to get  evidence  to put before them iu   regard   to  the working of the law.  The work in the house wa.s  unproductive of any great show  to the man in the gallery, until  Friday night, and then the proceedings were of a most spectacular kind. The motion that an  address be presented to the  Lieutenant Governor, thanking  him- for his  speech:-was  carried  the opposition would soon be in  such a position as to enforce^the  respect of the rights of the  minority.  Prentice it was'noticed at, tho  close of 'the"session"on'Friday  afternoon voted against the  government. (Mi .lhe motion for  an evening session. According  to many conversant with the  situation that member at present  is by no means a strong support  or of the government, iind he  even yet may be the cause of  their defeat. This i.s the view  of a member.

The enemy was   forced  back three miles, rid��e by ridge  beintr won in the face of a heavy  lire.
