"     S  The Old Abo.  The record on Tuesday shows  :>r>i) feet of work on Ihe Old A he.  The lower tunnel i.s progressing  h.1 the rale of four feet per day,  r-wo shifts being employed. On  Tuesday cross-cutting tlie ledge  was commenced, lis width had  not before been determined, although it is thought to be narrower than on the surface. The  ore now being extracted is of the  same grade as that hitherto taken out. Mr. Caldwell has great  faith in the property, and believes it has the makings of a  mine of large dimensions.  Windermere Country.  The news from ,the ' Windermere country continues to be of  a, most encouraging nature.  "Work is progressing on many  properties which are showing up  bigger ore bodies than ever before, and the grade ol the product is improving.  r  The work on the Paradise will  shortly be resumed.  At, the Delphine the extrac-'  tion of ore is being kept up and  by the time navigation, opens  there will be a largo quantity of  ore at-the landing ready for shipment.   - , r  There is a large amount of ore  _pt the Swansea sacked ready for  shipment by the Iirst boats.  Windermere'is growing ste'ad-  .11 y.     ft,is one of the most beauti-'  fttl locations in all of the  Kootenays.    -,.     '  Peterboro is advancing rapidly'  tapped  and   the   richest   mines-  have yet to be found."  .John was undoubtedly drawing on his imagination, ;is no  such sale has been recorded, aud  even the oldest inhabitants have  no knowledge of any place in  East Kootenay where wealth can  bo taken from the bowels of the  harmless earth wilh a shovel.  Such a mine has been sought for  by ambitious prospectors, who  desire to gel rich quick, but >o  far it tuts not been located.  THE POLITICAL SITUATION".  THE DUPONT.  The  Proved  Winter's    Work    Has  Most Satisfactory.  There is considerable development work being done on' the  Dupont group of mines on Moulder creek. While the force employed during the winter has  been small.- the w,ork has been  of such a character as to prove  the properly beyond a doubt,  During the winter the work  has been confined , to the upper  tunnel which is now. in Oa feet.  Where' this was started it was  calculated that the big dyke, traversing the properly would be encountered in about'100 ft. instead  of which it was 'encountered inside of "lO ;feot. 'Work was  necessarily slow in running in  the dyke, the quartz was hard  and but little,progress wasmttde,  at present the whole face of the  tunnel is in 'quartz, highly mineralized, iron pyrites .prevailing.-  In the new tunnel a wall was,encountered at fifteen ��� feet, and  this Willi has been followed since  with no signs of a break. The  old or lower tunnel is now in U13  feet at that depth it is thoughL to  be not far,from' the dyke._ v.The  and   is .assuming a metropolitan  indications point' to  the  Dupont  appearance. A large number of  buildings have been erected during the past year. and. inauy  more will be.' built during the  coming season.   .  R. O. Jennings returned from  it Hying trip to Windermere and  Peterboro on Tuesday night. He  , reports the country, from a mining standpoint, as quiet, but  large" operations will be commenced a little later. At the  Paystreak, in which Mr. Jennings is interested, a shaft has  been sunk sixteen feet showing  the same character of ore'as appeared on fhe surface.      4  In speaking of Peterboro  he said it was a flourishing little  town and had a population at  present of 100 people.' Considerable building was going on.  and before the summer was ended it would bo one of the good  towns of East Kootenay. Everything poinls to great activity in  the mines of that sociion the  coining summer.  being one of fhe largest and best,  proposition in South East Kootenay. '  Water Power on Boulder Creek.  The Dupont, Big Chief and  other mining properties on Boulder creek are admirably situated  as regards power'for machinery  etc.. from one-fourth of a mile  up Bailey creek lo "a point on  Boulder creek near the Big  Chief. When power is required  there is a fall of liaO feet in a distance of 3.500. following the  meandering of the creeks. An'  open ditch or llumo 1,500 feet  long will bring water onto, the  Big Chief, and a penstock to  the machinery silo.  Col.     Baker's    Announcement.--Can  Joo Martin Form a Government. -  Detectives   at   Rossland.'- Protest  cf Miners Union.  Victoria, B. C, March; J1.���  Again Colonel Baker announces that he i.s forever done with  politics, and there will- without  doubt be sorrow in Cranbrook-,  for without the Colonel in- the  House, where will be the 'Champion of lliat Kootenay village.  It must he admitted though that  the blow to they of "Beautiful  Cranbrook" has baen softened,  as the Colonel neglected them  more than was his want this session. '  While the Colonel says that lie  has had enough of- politics, his  decision was no doubt accentuated by the happenings of the  last few days of this session, and  from the fact that things did  come his way. It was noticed  that the Colonel, (lo use a term,  of the race, course.) began to'  hedge, and the actions of the  Semlinites 'found always support from him, for thinking that  there would be a coalition gov:  eminent, the Colonel was looking out for "Number One". It  was as a result of his support of  the motions of the ' Government  members that"' his fuecl with  Dunsmuir, which, as already  told in The Pkospkotok, came  near making history for the pugilistic columns'of the provincial  press. This was the last of the  doings of the memberfrom Cranbrook in the House, ������requiscat  in pace".        <���  A WONDERFUL MINE.  Taking; Out Wealth  by  tlio   Shovelful.  A recent issue of (he Innisfail,  Alberta, Free Lance, contains  thi1 following bit of interesting  information:  ���'Mr. John JelTery,   who spent  all last winter in Rod   Deer  and  left here for B. C. early in May,  has  returned   to   Calgary   from  East   Kootenay   where   ho   has  been mining and prospecting. He  was most successful  during  the  -mmmor. locating a claim of untold richness not far  from   Fort  Stiiele.    He sold it a week afterwards for ,��ir>0,000.00, payable iu  monthly, iiista^raeuts.    Two com-,  pauies are operating  the" property - aud    have  til ready   spent/  $5,000.0.0 on it. '.   If is a phenomena,! find.    No blasting is required/you simply dig is out with  a  shovel and there is, any quantify  of it.    He is  also  interested   iu  other   good   properties.      The  wealth of the Kootenays is  but  Black Bear Mine.  One of the ,mos< promising  niinos in the vicinity of Kimbor-.  ley is tlie Black Beai;, which is  under,the management of Chas.  Est mere. The mine has been  well developed for fully one  hundred feet, and i.s showing up  some line ore. Tho largo amount  of ore on the dump will be sorted and shipments will commence  at once.  Returned.  .1 times Cronin litis returned to  Moyie after an absence of several months in California. The  Moyie Loader says:  "When asked regarding the  Iulure operations of the company, Mr. Cronin said -it was  their intention lo si art the concentrator as soon as the work of  enlarging was completed, which  would be about tho I ."it h of April.  There aro n��w about ninety men  on the pay roll of the company,  but as soon as the ini 11 is in op-,  eratioii this number will be  doubled, which will make' close  to '200 mon in their 'employ:  Not Wanted'.  Joe Martin has written a warm  letter fo Rosshunl officials' regarding, the,patrolling of mines  by 'United States detectives.  ��� As   the  situation  now  stands  , , i 1,10  here,quietly, almost unconsciously/, ilie vpters of ' the-Province  are dropping into the,'camps of  those,wilh��whom 'they-will fight  ,the general election which is fast  approaching." Less is heard of  the speculation in regard to the  probability of "Joe"���I forgot!  Premier Martin���being' able lo  form a government, fie plainly  says he is able to do so, and does  not hesitate to say that he has  plenty, of material to build a cabinet that will not 'only be a slrong  one but a representative .of all  sections.  The significance of tliis statement lies iii the fact that tho  Cabinet has been exposed to the  charge of being'a lawyers ministry, every member of il being a  limb of the Jaw.' It is not likely  that in any i'urlher selections  which he will make the Premier  will resort to the aid of the dc-  ciplcs of Blackstonc.'  The impression is  daily  gaining  ground  that  while   Martin  himself is by no moans  a  figure,  head in tho Government, tho real  force behind the present administration    is   Smith-Curtis,   'the  now minister of mines.    Tho latter was a law partner of Joseph  Martin in Manitoba,   if   reports  are   to   be believed   framed   his  colleagues railway policy in  the  prairie province.     Certain   il is  that his is Iho general .scheme in  regard to railways as laid   down  in the statement of policy of the  ncwadminisfratioH.    Mr. Curtis  is a shrewd but   astute  mining  man.    whoso    partial    deafness  leads him  to   bo  taken  at  first  sight at a   lower  valuation   than  he merits.     Ho has only boon  in  his department for a  few  days.  yet ho lias already straightened  out a number iof ������' tangles  in   regard to certificates  of  improvement, which, for months  caused  heartburnings   between tlio department a'nd'.the minors.  A matter' that: js before the  new ���administration which is likely to, lax, fhe utmost'capabilities  of the ministers1 is the actions  of the in ine owners'af Rossland.  A few weeks ago tho niino owners, operating through Thiels"  Detective Agency here, secured  a forcu of mon who were taken  to,Rossland and there sworu in  by Magistrate Boultbee as special constables for duty on the  Center Star. War Eagle and Le  Roi mines. These men were  armed to the teeth and placed  under, a mounted policemen, who  regularly p'atroll'ed the ditt'ereiit'  posts and demanded the business  of those who visited the works.  The Minors' Union naturally regarded those stops as an insult  to those who had never used any  threats or contemplated any violence to the works, and they  have petitioned Premier Martin  foiyedress.     '      ' ���  ���The latter shares ,ihe fooling  of resentment expressed by the  men and litis demanded from the  magistrate an explanation < of  his conduct in swearing in so  many mon for police duty while  he had not notified the Government of any pending trouble.  Mr. Curtis goes to Rossland  on Wednesday to enquire into  this matter. He will also make  investigations with a view of adjusting the difficulties which'  have arisen with, regard ' to the  eight-hour law. Ho states that  if it is possible to modify the  law or relax its provisions' so  that tho two 'parties may be  brought together, tho Government stands ready to dp it. If  on tho other hand the minors arc  obdurate, Martin will .simply  carry out his policy o'of referendum and ask the people to decide  in the matter.  Merchants of this city arc ���'becoming very anxious to have the,  elect ions, brought on. "and Ail. is  said that arrangements are bo-,  ing made for a party of them, ir-  r.espcctive of politics -to go before the Governor and' ask., thai  he do what he can tb this cud.  ON THE ADVANCE.

At instance bf mine owners,  the city ��> of Rossland have  stationed twenty armed police'on  works, alleging said works to be  in jeopardy from shut out  minors. ��� Martin has made a  stroiig"pro1esl, alleging" that' as  long as ho is Attorney General,  ho will not .permit "Yankee detectives to 'act. but will assert  his'prerogative as an administrator of the law. ,  - The principal wholesalers of  Victoria, have waited on the  Governor and asked for ,an immediate dissolution, and a gen-  oral election.

The Black Bear mine near  Kimberley, is showing up better  than ever.  The new owners of the Martin  and Trilby claimsoon Luke creek  will commence development  work in a few weeks.  The owners of the Chickamon  Stonomino. expect lo do extensive development during the  coining summer.  There will be considerable activity on Wild Horse crook' and  its tributaries during the coming  summer. It will mean the employment of a largo number of  men, and the expenditure of  large sums of money, all of which  moans prosperity to Fort Steele.  Contract Let.  J. ti.

These are much  needed improvements, and il is  to bo hoped tho good work will  go on.  The Presbyterian Concert.  The concert hold for the bene'  fit of the Presbyterian church  was one of tho most enjoyable  held in Fort Steele. The numbers without exception were rendered in most0 excellout taste  without a single flaw, the vocal  and'instrumenial pieces being recalled, more particularly maybe  noticed.  ��� Mrs. Reed,'s excellent rendering of Braga's ''Soreuata"; and  ���'Fiddle and I", both with violin  obligato played by Mrs. Wallinger: fhe perfect harmony of  voice and violin was remarkable.  '' Miss Bennett sang the '-The  Green Fields of Virginia" with  great effect, her swoel voice'giv-  ing great expression to tho piece.'  and other efforts well deserved  the encore that followed. ��� '.  The violin solos of Mrs. Wallinger,wore as usual "above the  ordinary moiit. Vordio's well  known "TI Trovalore" eliciting  loud applause.

Great commendation is , due  Masdames McBride'aud Coi-san.  and Messrs. ������ Gray. Cham-  mings and Tompkins in making  the programme ino-e than efficient.

Were  it not for the fact that nil of the  38   members  who  compose tiie  Legislature have given evidence  ' of being  in  earnest  one  would  have thought they were all  actors iu a  parliamentary  burlesque.     The  week of which   the  above described scene  was  the  climax, was a week  of  extraordinary procedure, much of which  i.s without procedent; and  some  have only a "precedent in the un-  lightened days of  medievalism.  It  began with  the dismissal  of  1/he    Semlin-Cotton   administration on Thursday last   by ' Lieu-  tenant-Governor-McInnes.     The  f first act of the chain of extraordinary  parliamentary  law,   was  the strange motion  of, the  dismissed premier, ��� C.   A. , Seralin,  which, though couched in  unob-  jectioual phraseology, was a motion of censure condemning   the  Government for the dismissal of  the defeated Government.    This  motion was carried by a'majority  r solution which litis seldom been  i i'oc'iu-i] iu a.iy provincial  ii irliameitl.  He   moved:       '-Wherea-,    lite  Lieutenant-Governor    has    dismissed a ministry possessing the  [support  of  a   majority   of   the  in embers   of    the   House,    and  whereas  the  reasons  for doing  so are inefficient, 'and   whereas  His Honor has failed to surround  himself  with   constitution;!I   advisors up to this time, be  it  resolved that in the opinion of this  House, that  the  Governor-General of the Dominion  should  be  requested to  dismiss  the Lieu,  tenant Governor     as     incompetent."  It being uoinled out that as  two days had not been given tho  motion wa�� out of order. The  mover asked thai it be put as a  question of privilege, and on the  Speaker declaring that this also  of   Pretoria    kroul    .-,or\vd-.    !a'  l-iob.A '*    --Hold on" s-hriH'-i'd the  man behind th.- counter, , ��� -leave  your order today and come tomorrow".     ������'Well,   I  will  come  tomorrow*"  replied   'the   would-be  patron, and as he retired  Monte  said, "Damn crank, once a week  is enough for him to eat.

MONDAY'S NEWS FROM  THE    TRANSVAAL,.  of seven, and the majority would i00h,,'  Special to the Phospkcti-k.  London, March 11.���-A dispatch to the Daily Mail from As-  vogal Kop 'Sunday March 11  says:    ,  ,, The white flag treachery was  personally witnessed at Dreifqn-  tein by Lord  Roberts  who was  have been greater had not some  voted negatively,on the ground  that the motion was a  reflection  through a telescope  when the Welsh were charging  and saw the Boers hold up their  _ ,        hands, show the" white flag and  on the Queen  in  the  person   ofw1   +.. ���-���  ,.���,,,       0  T, . *    , .      .     drop  their guns.     He  saw   an  Her Representative.    If this mo-  lion was a strange one it was not  , more peculiar than  the  ci re urn's tanoes under which' the  House  to   re-  where-  volley  , ^.was sitting., The Governor had  dismissed the Government, but  had appointed ,110 one in their  steads. As put by the leader bf  , ,the Opposition. J., H. ' Turner,  fche situation was that there was  then no government," aud the  circumstances were such as had  never taken place,in this or any  other province before, "and  this  ,   was all due to the fact that the  Governor,   had    dismissed    this'  i , -=��i'  r Government, which might  have  been able to control the  House  without   appointing   anyone   to  succeed them.    These were however very material facts of affairs  as to what was'to come.    Sensational   insults   to  the Governor  came quick-; and  fast.     Captain  .lohn Irving. (Cassiar.) said that  the Governor had known for two  months past that, the  dismissed  Government had not control  of  the House.  . It did not serve his  purpose to put an  end   lo  them  then.     He was waiting for  his  opportunity,     but    immediately  that he hoard'of the adverse vote  he knew that the game was  up,  and then many members shouted  order aud asked Captain  Irving  lo withdraw his remarks. Whereupon, that member said he meant  them, but would withdraw them.  On exception being  taken  to  the accentuation of the  offence,  which many members referred f o  sis a direct insult to the  representative of the Queen.,    Captain  ceive  their    surrender,  upon  the  Boers  fired  a  and the officer fell.0      .   '  Lord Roberts has sent a pro-  test-=^to the neutral, powers  against the gross" abuse ofc a  white flag on Saturday by the  Boeis, which he witnessed himself; and to the use of explosive  bullets.,   "  , London,   March,  , ll.-^-A-dis-:  patch from  Dreifontein   to   the  war  office from   Lord .Roberts  says,, the   enemy    opposed   us  throughout yesterday's A march,  'and from, their  intimate  knowledge' of  the  country' gave   us  considerable1   trouble.       Pwing  however to  the' admirable conduct of  our  troops   the   enemy  were unable to prevent us reaching our destination.     The brunt  of  the  fighting' fell   on   Kelly-  Kenny's division,_who, with two  battalions, of which . the   Welsh  and Essex formed   part,   turned  the,Boers out of two strong positions ' at    the    point     of  t the  bayonet.

"Next  day   the   extraordinary  proceedings  continued.     .1.    H.  Turner, loader of the Opposition  wanted to know where  was   fhe  Government:' Mr. Prentice (Wast  Lillooot) said:     "It seems to be  a strange Ihing if,  as  has  been  suggested,   there  i.s   a   member  sitting in this  House,   who  has  been called, to  form , a.
