The   Session' Promises  to  be ' a  ��� ���- Lively -'- Qne���Modification    of  Grand Trunk   Contract���Oppo  sition, will Fight.  Oliawa, Out., .March 10.���Parliament opened Ibis afternoon  with the usual ceremonies. The  session-promises lo be a 'lively  one, as il bs generally believed  it will be Ihe last before tho "'en-  oral oleetion.  The government will press for  the adoption ol' modifications   in  the  'contract   with    Ihe   (.'rand  Trunk- Pac-ilie. tor the  construe  ��- lion of the transcontinental  kail-  road.    The Grand Trunk .people  .   have  decided   Unit   they cannot  undertake    the  construction   of  the road without some  inodilica-  c tion Vol"   the  lornis  agreed upon  last session.     The  opposition is  preparing lo vigorously tight the  demands of the railroad   and the  outcome remains to be'seen  Beyond these proposed modi-  licatipns in the Grand Trunk- Pacific contract and the eslimales.  the Government has nothing of  importance' to present lo parliament. Consequently, so far as  the government's programme is  concerned, the session should be  a short one But which will be  the case is a question of doubt.'  The opposition may find it expedient, for fhe education of the  ���electorate, lo force a general and  exhaustive discussion of tlie en  'tirefch'scal policy of the ad'minis-  trafion��� which' might prolong  the session Lor many weeks. U  is a possibility also  that reciprocity and' iuter-i'iri-  perial trade, may come up in connection with, the tariff. The  Premier's suggestion. -Towards  the close .of last '-session, that  Canada" should be granted the  treaty-making power, may also  very possibly be discussed.  The quest ion of inducing Newfoundland loonier confederation  has been a good deal before Ihe  country of,late, and has attracted much attention, among the  people. ��� Proposals,, for annexation must come from Canada.  and not from Newfoundland, and  it is regarded as possible that;  the question may be taken up at  the present session and (hat  something delinife may result.  The acquisition of Greenland,  and St. Pierre and Miquoloii,  may-also come before parliament  for discussion, as well as1-other  minor mailers Ihat-have been  engaging public al font ion during  the- last half year. Any one of  those questions would involve a  considerable addilion to ihe  length of Ihe session, and in addition there is a possibility of  systematic obsl rucl ion. If the  opposition should'deoide to carry  the session over to midsummer,  there is little or nothing lo prevent if. In view of these con-  sidernlions il is believed by  many that Ihe session begun today will last several months instead of weeks, and thai 1 lie gen  oral elections will not be held before the Kail.  aud from relatives aud friends in  all parts of Great Britain a flood  of congratulatory messages and  numerous presents poured in  upon King Edward and-Queen  Alexandra, today on the .occasion  of their forty-first wedding anniversary.

Starbird  London, - Tho Telegraph's  Shanghai special says news,'has  reached Osaka of an engagement  between Russians and ."Japanese  a, hundred miles from Vladivostock. It is stated that the Russians lied, abandoning arms and  stores. According lo theTien  Tsin correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph the Japanese' .advanced from the Yalu river, captured Fung Wang Ching and  drove out the Russians in the vicinity to the Taku Ling, eastern  pass, and, are in fact seventy  miles east of New Chwang.  The Yinn Kow correspondent  of the Now York Herald says  there aro vague"rumors: that.the  Japanese are 50 miles northwest  of Antung andpvvell to the west-,  ward of the Yalu river.. To some  of the military "critics it is inconceivable that,Japan can really  execute such an unexpected and  successful turning of the Russian  position on the Yalu river,  which is thought would have  necessitated the employment of  a much larger force than it is  believed Japan can possibly have  at this point., >    '    i  The Daily Telegraph says that  if. the news of this strange and  marvellous collapse ^of Russian  power on land is true, there is  nothing to prevent tho Japanese  from seizing Mukden and the  railroad. There has been nothing to compare with this move  since Napoloan staggered Europe  Its effect will be stupendous, r.  Washington���The government  has received advices by cable  from dice Foo, opposite Port  Arthur, to tho effect, that Japanese land forces'have appeared at  Fung Wang, Ching and at Tas-  kan. Tho first named place is  about 45 miles north of Atungv  in Manchuria, and the latter is  a few miles from the mouth of  the Yalu river. According lo  the calculations of naval officers  here they believe that this  movement has placed fhe Japanese on the Russian flank and  perhaps in the rear and on Iheir  line of communications.  The Kast Kootenay Placer  Mining Company formed in  April 1002, lo operate certain  placer leases on Perry Creek'1,  have conveyed , to (he Perry  Creek Gold Dredging Company  Ltd., all their mining property  situated on Perry Creek', in the  Fort Steele mining district.  The property consists of six  leases on Perry,'Creole aggregating three miles iu length by -Jofi'  feet wide, and described in the  transfer as follows:���"All those  crook diggings known as the  .���'Old Shaft" lease Lease y!o.'S7)  known as the Bonnell lease.

OF INTEREST  TO MINING MEN  Earned Lead Bounty.  Up to January Sibtli there' has  been &!)5,00O of bounty money  earned by the British Columbia  mines.

They  have carefully prospected every  part ol the ground now held by  the company. ''The ground has  yieldo^l *2,t,Oji$t> per day for a  miner with pick and shovel ,and  with 'machinery ���*' which can  handle,, the same amount of  gravel as 200 men in a day. and  which can be operated for the  wages of ten men, .the financial  results will well warrant fhe investment.  , There are several distinct runs  of gold ,on Perry Creek, one of  which lies on fhe true bedrock  of the creek' and underlies fhe  whole of the company's property  If varies in depth from 20 to 7<)  feet. The only point where this  run is actually work-eel at. the  present time is two miles below  the company's, property where a  shaft has been sunk to bedrock  and "drifting on tho paystreak  yields over ��15 per day per man.  From the true bedrock to,a. point  varying from 4 feet to 10 feet  from fhe surface, the original  valley has become filled with a  stratum of this clay or false bedrock ' a deposit of gold exists  which, is' known by actual pros  peeling to be generally disseminated over the whole of this  false bedrock.  This ruiif of gold lias been  known to exist for several years,  but on account of difficulty of  access, until recently, it has  been impossible fo put proper  mining machinery on the ground  From actual tests on various  parts of the ground, this pay  streak has yielded a return of  from *l to ."G (o the superficial  yard. On the lop of Ihe false  bedrock- rests the original wash  gravel varying in thickness from  4 feel, lo Id feel, which carries  values in line gold from 15 fo 25  cents per -cubic, yard.  pioitiiv cifi'.'KK 'im.ackk.s.

Archdeacon of Kootenay at Steele  Ou Sunday last Archdeacon  Beer preached to a large and attentive congregation.  As the St. John's Episcopal  Church was loo small to scat the  congregation, the Presbyterians  kindly tendered the use of their  church for the service, thereby  showing a broad spirit of christian liberality, which should he  more cultivated by the different  religious denominations.  The venerable Archdeacon  made a most favorable impression and the-concensus^ of'opinion is that the right mail was se  lected to "fill, the ohice' by the'  Bishop.
