The owners���are much  .gratified at   the  result  of  their  work, and express  the  opinion,  that with  further  development. |  the property will prove to be one  of the best in East Kootenay. In  the process of development considerable ore of shipping  grade  has been extracted, and  later in  the season this product   will  be  sent to the smeller.  There  are  six  claims "in   the  group, the Old Abe,Black Prince,-  Blue'JayJ  Nancy' Hanks,   Para-  gut and Buller.    On   the  Nancy  Hanks there is a strong well defined lead, which, judging  from  surface indications, is even   better  than .on, the Old Abe,   the  work however has been confined  to the Old Abe, about 250 feet of  work having been accomplished  in  the  three "months  since  the  present "company   secured   control.

Oral Cronje.
Shortly ;ifterwai'd a note reached Lord Roberts bringing tidings
of the Boers' unconditional  surrender.    General Prettyua'n was
[/ sent to accept the surrender.
At about   7   o'clock   a   small
ifroup of  men  appeared  in   the
distance crossing the plain in the
<  i    direction of headquarters.     The
latter being,apprised of General
Cronje's approach, Lord Roberts
,  walked to the front in the modest
coat'in which lie sleeps and   ordered a guard of theSeaforths to
line up.    A group''of  horsemen
then approached.     On   General
Prettyman's right rode an elderly man, clad in   a  rough   short
overcoat, a wide  brimmed  hat,
ordinary    tweed    trousers    and
brown shoes. It was the redoubtable Cronje.    liis face was burned almost black--,   and  his  early
, beard was tinged with grey.
,,    '       Lord Roberts  walked  to  and
■ fro,in front/of his cart until' the
''- Boer general arrived, when  the
British officer kindly and  politely saluted the Boor general.
(        'Cronje's   face  was  absolutely
impassive,   exhibiting "no   signs
of liis inner feelings.   Lord Roberts was surrounded by his> staff
•when   General * Prettyman , addressed the field marshal, saying:
"'Commander Cronje,,sir".
,ITho   commander  touched  his
'   .     hat in salute, and Lord   Robert's
saluted in return.

Placer Mining1 in East Kootenay.
There arc comparatively Jew
people who know anything of
the extent of placer mining in
the Port Steele district. There
is a popular idea that the days
when placer mining can be carried on with its meed of profit
has passed. This idea is held
for 1he<reason it is claimed. Unit
the placer fields have " been discovered and the wealth extracted long ago.
The truth about placer mining
however is that future years will
*ee a larger yield of placer gold
than has been in the past. As
;i proof of this fact" it is only
necessary to note the amount
that is being taken out year after
year by the companies that are
now engaged in that direction.
The Wild Horse diggings were
Iirst worked in J 8(3-1 and the crude
appliances of those days wore
used to advantage, and millions
of gold were taken out. After a
while however niahy of the "Old
Timers" abandoned the diggings.
'But as years have passed since
that ti ine, from $30,000 to $r>0,000
has, been the yearly record for
the district. Gold'remains in
large quantities on Wild Horse

Minerals. * <■,>
Minerals, particularly ihe metallic ones, are chiefly distributed over and abpve'the surface of
the earth iii layers' or masses, in
lodes3 or', largo" veins, running
parallel with ,'or traversing 'the
general course of the stratification of the rock: in liests or pockets-, in nodules, which are concretions or accumulations of minerals of small extent^, and in.
small veins, which are either
branches of heavy veins, or traversing larger (-veins, ramifying
the roclr in all directions.
The transition rock'is the domain of metalliferous deposits.
Here we find more variety and
abundance than in any other geological'formation: in this rock
tlie best qualities of ore are also
found. The secondary rocks, or
those which contain bituminous
coal, do not furnish as great a
variety of minerals as 'the transition rocks, and many kinds are

Mineral substances, particularly those which are used for the
production of metals—the workable ores—are but few in number. They are generally of oxides, that is a combination of
metal with oxygen: sulphurots.
or metal combined with sulphur;
and carbonates, or metallic oxide's combined with carbonic
acid. Combinations of other
substances than these are rare.
Minerals of the above description frequently form large bodies
of pure ore by themselves,
buried beneath the surface in the
rock". In most cases however
these,ores are blended with foreign'matter, as lumps or grains
of quartz, Time and other substance, which are mechanically
mixed or in. chemical, combination with it: ■-■ In some instances

vein is rocky matter, and the ore
embedded in that substance. The
mineral deposits are often found
in such heavy masses  as  to  ad-  move far without destruction.

Prospecting: for Minerals.
In  prospecting   for   minerals
the first thing to 'be rascertained'
is, whether there be any mineral
in that, locality, and of what  description.      The   next   question
will be as to the precise 'spot  in
.which  it  is  most  likely   to   be
found.    Suppose we wish to find
galena, which is known to pe  in
the vicinity, we   must,   in  order
to insure success, know   the  accompanying formation,  that   is,
the rock in which the mineral  is
embedded: ' knowledge   of   this;,
character multiplies the chances
of finding the mineral.    In many
cases we select the rock  accompanying the mineral,  or 1 such   a
vein of dead mineral  as  has  an
extensive range, no ma tier  how
far. how high or how low it may
be, from the supposed A-ein.    We
judge  the  distance,   and  if  the
rock'wherein the mineral vei'n is
buried, belong   to the  stratified
rocks, we may expect to find the
vein at no great distance  in any
direction,   hi the vein   stone  or
accompanying rock, wc may rely upon finding the mineral.oven
though we do not discover if   at
the  place   where  we   open   the
vein, or touch the vein   mineral.
Where   the   vein ' runs   parallel
with the formation as is the case
iii  gold    regions,   there   is   not
much difficulty in finding a vein,
but where the mineral veins traverse the strata in   angles  more
or less defined, the object is not
so readily obtained.    When fragments of ore or lloat is found  on
a hillside, it is evident fhat  the
vein must have a higher location
for these   fragments   must   have
come down  the  hill.      Tf these
fragments are found in o stream,
the vein that supplied them must
be higher up the stream, and the
farther up the lighter the material.    Heavy minerals do not drift
hir in a   si ream,   but   is   always
found close, to its source. ' If tlie
current is strong enough to, move
fragments .of  galena'it  is. soon
ground into such a fine dust that
it can be crrried.off by the  most,
gentle current:. Therefore mi five
metals and sulphurets of   metals
are    id ways    found   near'  their
source,    because    they     cannot

"pm.il inTm: I'hosi'ecj-oii. ,  Victoria, March 5.���After a  swries of unparalleled scenes the  Eighth Parliament, of British Columbia was porogued on Thurs  day last, and it is probable that  the .sensational scene then enacted is without a precedent in the  history of British Governments.  A series of insults had been given to ihe local representative of  Her Majesty the Queen, the  Liieutenanl-Governor, hi is late  Prouder had brought dow,n, a  motion which, had been carrh-d  by the I To use, cen.su ring him lor  the di.smis.-al of the kite government, and a resolution had boon  offered asking that he bo withdrawn as incompetent. Allocations had been made a.s 1c his  personal interest in tlie proceedings, but of ail the fiTsulls given  him by the legislators of, ihi.s  Province, the most grave cwu&  that given by the House when he  came with his glittering stall' to  porogue it.  There was a very bitter' feeling against the Lieutenaiit-Gov-  ernor, aud many things���the  most striking perhaps being his  choice of unpopular Joe Martin  lo form a' Government���hud occurred to pave Ihe way, for this,  ihe' most extraordinary scene  ever witnessed in a British House  of Representatives. The course  adopted by the.members was arranged the night betore, and  botli,sides bound themselves in  common cause against the Lieutenant-Governor in-his action.  Party differences and all grudges  whatsoever were dropped in face  was  trying  to  bring   back   his  voice.     lie < was  about  to read  of what  some  of  the  members j when the uproar in the galleries  between him and Speaker Foi s-  tor. They just looked at one  another, and the Sergeant-at  Arms having removed the mace  the Speaker slowly turned away  and went down to the Jioor of  House, the Governor immediately taking ihe chair. The officers grouped themselves on the  dias by,the side of the Governor.  All this took but a few moments, and while it was going on  every member had left his seat,  and as the Governor sat down,  the coat-tail of the last was seen  in the door of Ihe chamber,  livery s'pgie member had gone  Iroui tlie chamber, and when the  Governor looked up after .sitting  di'V. u. it \vn.-�� to behold the  strange-1 spectacle that ever  greeted the eyes of a representative oi Queen Victoria, or any  other Bi iti.sh monarch. Not a  soul w��i -e'en on ihe iiodr oi th"  House, except in the noith door,  where an old man hi shabby  garb hud evidently wandered in  and 'stood funnily deciding  whether to go in and sit down in  the em ply benches.  From the galleries broke forth  a storm of derisive laughter, cat-  culls, hissings and , rappings.  The otticers'of tlie escort seemed  much embarassed, and it seemed  as though some i movcnlent was  contemplated lo clear the galleries. The' Governor visibly whitened and seemed for the moment  non-plussed. lie was greatly  agitated and fumbled with his  cocked hat. his spectacles, his  sword, anything to occupy his  attention, then he took his  speech from his private secretary, turned it around several  limes, and coughed as though he  THE PKOSPKCTOK.

This was evi  dent from the manner in which  '   Ihcy carried it out. r  Tt was a lovely spring day.and  the air, was filled  with  gladness  of returning .summer,   the  rose  gardens and' .the .- green   lawns  adding much to the summer-like  -weather, aud all  the world   and  his, repaired to the' Legislature.  The galleries were filled to their  a-capacity.      <,',,.  " When prayers had , been  read  and the galleries  were  waiting  with expectation for the arrival  of the Governor and his party, it  was noticed'that  Mr.   Prentice,  (East Lillooot,,) was on his  feet,  lie moved as a question of privilege,   seconded  by   Capt.   John  Irving.    (Cassia r,)    "That    this  House has not confidence in Mr.  Joseph   Martin,   who  had been  selected to  form   a  government  by-    the     Lieutenant-Governor.  "This was carried by 37) to '1:    .1.  M. Martin. (Rossland.) a lone voting   negatively^     The   galleries  were cheering aud amid the  applause the late president of  tiie  Council,     Dr.    McKechnie,    was  r'aslcing for names, when  he  was  suddenly interrupted by the   arrival of  ;i   peremptory   message  from    ihe    Lieutenant-Governor  ordering the removal of Ihe   bar  of the House, as he and his stall'  were wailing lo enter.    The tter-  geanl-af-Arms 'hurried    lo    the  brass rail that means so much in  the pomp   and   circumstance   of  parliamentary yo\ eminent,   and  hoisted it up and bade.    The big  doors were   thrown   wide   open,  and   his   honor   Ihe   Lieutenant-  Governor, resplendent in his gorgeous gold-laced uniform,   cocked hal with white ostrich plumes  carrying   a   gold-hilled   rapier,  was seen for a moment standing  under the full glare of   the  brilliant sunshine 1hat   streamed   in  from the. dome,  in   formation   of  two deep,   weie ,soveral    na\al,  militai-v and nnlilin ollicei -.   The  ^imposing   pageant    marched   in  'will: -low and dignified tread up  Ihe center aisle towards the  Throne, and the Governor slow-  \y mounted the steps."' Not a,  movement of  salutation  "passed  began ^again. The naval and  military attaches fidgeted aud  looked uncomfortable, and the  go ver nor_ t w i sted his hands a bout  in ncrvouVagitatioii. seemingly  not knowing what to do for the'  moment. Joseph ..Martin, the  chosen premier, stood near the  clerks desk as impassive*as a.  statue, the only seeming unperturbed man in tlie assembly.  His Honoiv rose slowly, the  speech in his hand, bowed with  formal motion to the empty  benches, and .apparently began  to read the speech, for a ��� wide  outburst of jeering laughter, applause, rappings, stampings,  hisses, cat-calls and other cries,  drowned the opening sentence.  His Honor went ou in a tremulous voice at Iirst. and seemingly  finding it difficult to keep his at-  tention to the paper. At references to the House the galleries  again burst forth and boomed derision and applause.  Some strident-voiced individual yelled at intervals. '-Where  are they':1" and then' the disorder was increased ten-fold.  Amid the uproar the Governor  went on doggedly lo the end.  -'I now release yon from further attendance," caused pandemonium lo break loose again. As  the Governor bowed to , the  empty benches on Ihe conclusion  of the address the galleries fairly shrieked with laughter, and  derisive comments were shouted  by men who hung over the edge.  The only members of the House  who heard the speech were  Messrs. .Joseph Martin and  Speaker l<'orster. The speech  read liis Honor stepped down  from ihe Throne and followed by  his escort marched slowly down  the aisle out of the chamber.  Cheers, hisses, groans, hoots,  a perfect hurricane of sounds, accompanied the. march of the viceregal party all the way to the  exit. The galleries wore frantic  with excitement. One man called  across the Governor to the  galley opposite in an ironical  manner. ������Three cheers for   Mc-  the chamber like a croud ol football players, amid Ihe tumult of  the galleries. The uproar continued for' some inin.ut.''*, and  then Price lil11>on, (luist Vale,)  waiving' his hand around his  head and addressing the galleries  shouted. "Wc are the people",  and another completed the sentence, yelled, ������And, we must be  respected", which brought a  fresh demonstration from the assembled throng. Mr. Pooley  then waved for order, a net when  the hub-bub had in a measure  subsided, was hoard shouting.  '���I move that Mr. Pointer "ol  Delta-not Speaker Porster it was  noticed���take the chair. (Renewed cheering greeted this'and  amid it Mr. Porster'took a seat  at the committee desk, and rapped for order).  Pat riotic resolutions congratulating the Queen. Genoral'Buller.  and General AVhito. on the relief  of Lady.shiit.fi, was then moved,  and after the fervent singing of  "God Save the Queen", the  crowd passed out oi the hall and  across the city to join in the  celebrations then in progress in  honor of the relief of Ladysmith.  Victoria, March" .">.���It has  transpired that, many members  of thc��� Legislature' took other  steps besides walking out of the  House'when His Honor, appeared. . To show their disapproval  of the action taken by him in  calling xToe , Martin, to form a  Government. Numerous telegrams were sent to Ottawa asking Premier Laurier to recall  Governor M dimes, and answers'  have been received that the matter wo'uld be thoroughly examined.  Ex-Premier Semi in who is retiring from politics after over  thirty years of participation,  stated thai, he had no doubt that  Governor Mclnnes would be, recalled.  Thc'Conservative and -Liberal  leaders on the mainland are making efforts fo have the election  run on-party lines, but it is still  a question whether they will .succeed.  Charles Wil.son the Conserva  tive leader \vants a   party   li.gjif  but Sir 1 libbert Tupper wanfsra1  union of.all parties opponents fo  Martin.      The Vancouver Liberals have endorsed Martin, and it  is just possible that he  will   get  the    support    of    the    Liberals  throughout Ihe Province.    Even  at that however he stands   little  chance of having a majority over  all in the next legislature.  l'limi 1'nd.ilmji .uhI .Minci' I'iu- nlli'ii  h:iw,li;i(l ullt'd ii[>oii tin- siiudl lio,\ idle  o\-��;i- iiidnlyi��� in I In-ill.
