These claims are about i'l'  miles from Fort Steele, and four  miles from Jatfray. the first station east of Wardner.

St.  Paul and Canadian capitalists  have secured all of Ihe claims in  the neighborhood and have commenced ojierations on a large  scale.

Those interested seem to have  hoVloubl but the Big Chief i.s a  )>roj>orly of more than ordinary  merit. .As* the work goes on  their convictions a re strengthened., The values now being taken  are much in!excess ol whatlwas  expected when the property .was  first bonded.

The ��� Fort  Steele district can make as  fine a showing as any district in  British Columbia and there is no  reason why there should be a  lack of interest in getting the  collection together.

The incident   is  chiefly   in.struc  tive as indicative of the  lengths  to which opposing interests may  go in order to  saddle  upon   the  country a continuance of the record of annual deficits on account  of the Intercolonial railway. The  interests are not slow to  recognize that what is tho gain of tho  Intercolonial railway, and therefore the people; of  Canada  who  .own.it, must necessarily to some  extent inesiua loss to them.

Hi its anxielv  lOiret tin1 ear of the   newspaper  though suffering from  a  severe  hoarseness  he   applied   himself  with    dogged    determination to  the task of niaking good the  assertions  that his  second  attack  upon the  Yukon  administration  would occupy a greater space^of  time  in   the  delivery   than   the  first, and lie succeeded in  gratifying  the   expectations   of   his  friends with'the assistance of the  premier who  readily  agreed  to  his proposal that lie be allowed  to spread his'remarks  over .two  days, instead of being compelled  to continue until he had conclud  ed.i, Sir Hibbert. had.  evidently  worked   hard   and   faithfully   in  preparation lor his*self imposed  tasl^-, and endeavored'to present  the   -strongest . possible     case  against the Government.     That  the Government was  uninjured  and retained the confidence, not  only of the  House,   but  of  the  country when'ho sat  down 'was  rather because of  the   ftict  that  tlie material i?pon which   to  impeach   the  Government  or .the  officials as a booty did not   exist,  than i'rom any neglect or lack" of  desire  of   denunciation -��� on   his  pari.  Sir Hibbert waded through  page after page of evidence talc-  en before  Mr.   O.yilvie  and  the  burden of his complaint was that  the   commissioner  had   insisted  on conducting the  investigation  as though ho were a judge,   that  I hose who' came before him with  complain Is     should    put     their  charges in writing; that the  accused official should have an opportunity to be present and meet  the charges against  them.. and.  above all. he insisted upon proper respect being paid   the  Court  and upon order being   maintained.    Sir Hibbert  deduced   from  the evidence and the records that  Mr. Oailvie was utterly  unfitted  I'or the position of   Investigator,  that he was   unbiased,   and   iva.s  unable     to     distinguish    crime I  ' i  when he saw it. He renewed the charges against  Major Walsh Avho he said was  interested     in  form upon which he had been  elected, and in the few particii:  lars in which it differed from  that platform he'had found by  experience was the superior,  that in tho interests of, his/con  1    i '  stituents he had found himself  bound to support the Government and would 'continue .to do  so.as long as they pursued the  same beneficial policy. His reply to the taunt regarding the  patronage was equally effective  and he declared that he did not  ,want to exercise any such privileges.    -When,-the debate was'  r . d **"  over, tho general opinion was  that the attack- had only resulled  in disaster to t he-aggressors and  that tlie subject of. if had' risen  in the estimation of the House, j  and the public, as a man who  could rise superior to the party  when the interests of his constituents and the general good demanded ii".  '    "       The Cause of Failure.  When a mine fails' to pay there  are always numerous excuses to  offer for such failure.    One most  commonly heard is thai the "old  rattletrap of a   mill"' would not  save gold.     It. is "a  well   known  factithat  some" of  the  simplest  and most i^'huitivo  mechanisms  save   free    gold    closely    when  properly manipulated, and an old  rattletrap of a mill  can   still  be  made to do good  work-  if  there  arc no holes in  bottom  or  sides  of the mortar, though it may not  have a.s high an   efficiency   as  a  more  modern   mill.     The  fault  usually lies either with the men  running the mill   or  in   the  ore  being too poor to pay.   unless  it  bo unsuited to free milling, when  the finest milling machinery will  do no  belter.     Another  excuse  for tail tire is  bad   management.  It is undoubtedly true that many  good   mines  have   been    ruined  or at any rate temporarily    shut  down by reason of bad  management,  but   a  really   good   mine  will stawl considerable bad management,     ll is the   poor  mines  which   will  not   pay  under   any  management    that   are   grossly  mismanaged and large   sums   of  moiicn extravagantly  expended.  ���Mhihif/ o��il Sriioi/i/ic ['rrss.  mining    claims  o  .through hi.s cooks, his Indians  and his brothers and who he assorted terrorized the gold commissioner Pawcett. The speech  of Sir Hibbert   which   contained  nothing new or starlling aroused I     ,\ mixture'of .sulphate oi   cop  very little enthusiasm   upon   the] p,.r (blue.stoiie) 'one ounce: alum,  Conservative   benches   and    the j one-quarloi  general feeling in Die House and!  galleries was that  while  as  an'  example of  physical   endiiranci  ounce:     powdered  sal),  hall   teaspoonfnl:   \inegar.  one gill, aud nitric acid,   twenlv  'drops, will cut, .steel too hard  lo  right  '.>m>s however the Telegraph Co.

The opinions of the Canadian  press regarding the Joe Marl in  incident are ot course tinctured  according to the political bias of  the different papers.     ~"^  Tho following are. a few ox-  eerpls taken a.t random from the  columns of our exchanges .showing the drifl </f opinion:  ���Nfelson Tribuiie:--Th('ro will  not be a provincial general election as the supporters of the laic  Turner government predict. The  Turner crowd were turned down  lor four years.  Nelson Miner:-- -Whit I over else  may happen, Mr. Martin will be  forced out of the Government.  He may dray ihe entire cabinet  down with him, but he cannot  save' himself.  Not only will the Government  be butter'b'ecauseoi'Mr. Martin's  suppression, but British'-1 Colum-  ' bian politics will bo .elcanoii and  healthier., when   purged   of   his  obanetul inllucnoe. ' c o  o .Cascade Record:���The, Attorney-General has gradually alienated his erstwhile Iriends. and  scarcely a. paper in the province  endorses him or his acts, at this  . writing.   . -I-"  ' Hamilton Herald:- Clearly resignation is'not among the political 'virtues possessed by , the  Hon. .Le Martin.'

At   Ihe   express office the other day   there  were some cherries from Wenat-  chee, Wash.. 200 miles  west  of  Spokane.     This fruit went first  through Spokane' lo Shelby junction thence to Great Falls,  from  thence .shipped   lo   Lethbridge  and   then   sent' to   Fort   Steele.  Another consignment from Hood  river.    Oregon...  was    probably  shipped to Vancouver and   from  thence lo   Lethbridge  and   then  to Fort Steele.     In either event  the fruit must have gone  a   distance of not  less  than   l.(KK)  to  1200 iniles, with changes in   one  instance at Shelby .junction, again'  at Great Falls and at Lethbridge  whereas the distance   from   Spokane via Nelson is less than   lil.'i  iniles.
