MARTIN  AT   ROSSLAND  The Attorney-General Had Little if Any  Excuse for His Wild Language  l~roin the Ro-ssl-iiil Minor.  Silt: In the llossland Miner this  morning I was greatly surprised to  read a resolution adopted by the Rnss-  Iiiiul Miners' Union regarding llie  conduct of the Hon. Joseph Martin at  tlie complimentary banquet given to  tho Hon. Charles H. Mackintosh in  this cil.y on June 20th. My surprise  was not, duo to tl-.e fact, that the  Miners' Union had indorsed Mr. Martin, but that the union should have  been so entirely mistaken its* (o the  facts of the case.  That Mr. Martin' was specially  invited by the committee to alt end  the banquet; that he was invited to  respond tn one of the principal toasts  of the evening; and that lie was given  a seat, at the head of the table next to  the chairman, all go to show that it  was the intention of the committee to  do him honor, both us a public man  andas ii gentleman. It i.s therefore  childish to assert, as does the resolution, that it was planned to insult him.  Tlie occasion was a convival one and  other speakers besides Mr. Martin  (notably the ex-attorney-geneial, the  Hon. D. M. Eberts) were "guyed" to  an equal extent, yet none of theiri felt  or intimated that they had been  insulted or unduly jeered at.  But the principal point wliich I desire to make is this: No reference  whatever 'was made by any df the  speakers to the eight-hour law. of  which I have yet to be informed that,  tlie Hon. Joseph Martin was a champion. The only political references  which were made by any of the  speakers, prior to ilr. Martin, were  made by the guest of tha evening, and  the Hon. T. Miiyhe Daly. Mi: Mackintosh spoke only of tho Alien Placer  Mining Act, an act which Mr. Martin  is generally understood to have  fathered, stating that he had found in  London that the act was looked on  with" great disfavor and that its effects  h-id lieen most detrimental to the  mining interests of the province in the  moneyed centres of the east ' and  Europe. This statement was made  without, prejudice. Mr. Daly's only  political reference was to the prominent part w-hiclv Mr." Mackintosh had  taken,as a member of the" House, of  Coin'moiiR in securing lhe adoption of  tlie policy of, pi ot eetion to Canadiau.  industries, ti, policy which he asserted  had been finally adopted hy the Liberal party. This assertion was not  accepted as gospel by the Liberals  present, who, with the exception of  the Hon. Mr. Martin, only' greeted it,  with derisive laughter Willie ut losing  their tempers over ir.  Now, as to the jeers which, according to the resolution of the Rossland  Miners'Union interrupted Mr. Martin's  speech. I would beg to point out Mint  though they onlyproceeded from half  a dozen banqueters- at the outside,  they were entirely due to sentiments  which Mr. Mart in expressed, and  during his whole speech he nevei  referred to the eight-hour law. What  he did was to-eulogize the American  revolutionists and revile by implication  those known as Tories in the United  States and on this side of the  line as  "United Empire Loyalists*'; the men  who onl, of loyally lo the British  Crown surrendered all their wot Idly  possessions and by*' emigrating to  Canada, laid the' foundation of the  present grand Dominion.  I admit tliat it wns unfortunate that  .Mr. Martin was interrupted ntnll. but  public men in Canada should be accustomed to'this, and I maintain that the  subject matter of Mr. Martin's speech  could not have been more ill-chosen,  as the assembly had previously shown  by the way it applauded the references  of Governor Mackintosh nnd olheis to  Imperial Federal ion that it was practically a unit upon tliis question.  It seems  to nu:  llieiefore  that  ihe  resolulion     adopted   by   the    Miner-.'!  Union was passed  uniler a  misapprehension ns to lho  fact*,  and   I   would  further stale that while the eight hour  law was not. discussed, 1 believe it  has  a great many supporters amongst, the  "would-be     aristocracy"    who     were  present, and   that  if al nt,  any  time  trouble should arise over  its  enforcement   the    Kossland   Miners'    Union  would be very glad of the  mnial  support of  lho  very  gentlemen   whom it  now needlessly maligns.  Tours truly,  II. AV. C. Jacksox,  Secretary Banquet Committee.  Rossland, July 4th. I8S9.  FEES  OH .MINERAL   CLAIMS.  Notice Issued   From  the   Office   of  the  Minister of Mines.  Minister nf Mines. J. Fred nume,  hns sent -ont the following notice to  holders of mineral claims:  "Notice is hereby given that when  the ln-Ider of a mineral claim is prepared lo make application for a crown  grant, he shall send all the documents  in support thereof, together with the  fee of $10 to tlie gold commissioner for  the district within whicli the claim is  situated, who will examine and transmit them when in order to tlie head  office at Victoria."  THEY WILL  HAVE   TO. WAIT.  The    Kootenays   Cannot    Have    More  Members Yet.  At .->. recent meeting of the Rossland  Boaid of Trade, the following letter  from Sir Wilfrid Laurier w.is read:  Ottawa. June 5. 1S00.   *  Sn: : I have received yonr telegram  of tlie 30ih of May stating that the  Ros-*l.iml Board of Trade protest  against the failure to piovide in the  new redistribution, separate members  for Kootenay. which is developing  in wealth and population, and whose  present population exceeds 25.000. I  would beg lo remind you that the  object of the present bill is not lo  recast the representation with the  view of taking into account the increase in population. This. I consider,  we can do only after census. My object'  is simply to readjust the limits of  counties, which were interfered witli  hy the representation acts of 1SS2 and  1S02. Tlie just claims of Kootenay-  must be adjourned until after the next  census. -  Mr. Hewitt Bostock also wrote  saving that he intended bringing the matter up in llie House,- but*  that the government was not likely to  take action until afler the next census.  Imperial Bank of Cancda.  We have already hail occasion to  notice the unusual earnings of this  bank during the past year. -They  were at the rate of rather more than  15 per cent, on' capital; arid enabled  the addition of $100,000 loi est account  end the writing olf of $20,000 from  bank premises account, after disttib-  utiiig nine per cent, to shareholders.  Itis very agreeable to observe that  the meeting on Wednesday approved  the proposal lo coiilributo.r$2,').00(J to a"  pension fund for ollicers and employes  ~of the bank. A generous paragraph in the report refers to the royal  earnestness of the stuff'in working  for the best interests of the institution.  Ten years have, elapsed since the last  increase of the capital slock of the  bank wns authorized aud the deposits  and circulation having more than  doubled in volume in the interval, thc  directors recommended an increase of  the capital stock of to S2.400.000. This  was approved by shareholders, and  will be carried into effect during tlie  ensuing year. Tlie total assets have  been swelled during last year to $18.-  815.000, and of tlii-* large sum no less a  proportion than $S 5511,000 is in readily  available shape. Tlie death of Mr.  Hugh Ryan, a valued director of the  bank for eleven years, having left a  vacancy upon the board, it. was filled  by the election of Mr. Wil.'iam Hen-  drie, of Hamilton branches of the  bunk have been opened in Hamilton  and Listowel, Ontario, and Nelson,  British Columbia,* dining the year.���������  ���������Monetary Times.  That Alleged Conspiracy.  This desperate resort cry of Mr;  Martin and his friends will not fool the-.  Liberals or anyone else. The Victoria  Colonist is shrewd and fair-minded-  enough tii see through it, and puts the-  case verv well, this morning, when ib  ridicules the idea, and declares that,-  "when the-Liberals of Butish Columbia look for a leader, the}- will  select a man more acceptable to the  government nt Ottawa than ' the-  present. attorney-general." Apiut altogether from that, however, Mr;  Martin has. completely discrediied-  himself by his own actions in vthis  province, and the reasons for his"  resignation being requested by tlie  premier are on tbeyery face of things."  and leave no room for the invention of-  .���������1113- fictitious explanations such as  that put forward by Mr. Martin and  his- friends.���������New Westminster Columbian (Liberal). --    ,  The Nettie L. .--  T.

Herbert J. Trites of Ferine has been  appointed a coroner for Enst Kootenay.  Rev. C. A.

P. R. at AVinnipeg was presented  wlth a handsome gold watch, suitably inscribed, hefore leaving Toronto for the west.  The Fort Steele Prospector says that  the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate  of Toronto has secured a controlling  interest in the St. Eugene, Peter and  other mining claims in East Kootenav, the' price paid being hetween  $.00,000   and   5500,000.  AA'.R.McInnes, who will he in charge  of the freight department of the  Western division of the C. P.

Mr. Mclnnes occupied the position of chief clerk for Mr. Olds, general traffic manager at Montreal for  about 10 years.  The London Times, referring to Sir  Hibbert Tupper's demand  for a royal  commission, to   enquire   into   alleged  scandals in the Yukon,  says the Dominion government would  have been  better advised had it shown a deeper,  sense of the serious character of the  'charges and the necessity for meeting  them.   It  regrets   that  so   serious    a  matter should be treated by the government as a strictly  party question.  In Toronto it is stated that a group  of   London   capitalists   applied   for  a  short option  on  tho  North  Star property making an offer     of ?1.500,000.  It was also said that     the      London  people had offered to send out experts  to go over the property at their own  expense.     The offer ivs refused.

Eight miners have just reached San  Francisco from the north with 5200,-  000, the result of two years' digging  within 20 miles of Dawson. One at  them. AV. H. Armstrong, has :i nugget  worth ?360. "The country is full of  idle men." said Armstrong, "and every  steamer brings a lot more to swell the  list. There will be a fairly good  clean up around Dawson this year,  but it will belong to 10 times as many  men as last year's output."

Mrs. Koberl Lane, wife of onc  of the hest of Brandon's most respectable citizens was deliberately,  shot dead on Tenth street by an unknown tramp. The murder took place  in thc dining room where Mrs. Lane  was standing on a char hanging up  curtains. A tramp appeared at thc  back door and in hroken Knglish  asked for something to eat. Sho told  him not to bolher her as she was  Loo busy Lo attend to him. He then  without a word of warning drew a  revolver and deliberately fired at her  hack. The bullet penetrated her to  the heart.  The servant girl was present but  she did not see the shooting, as she  had her back turned. Mrs. Lane on  receiving the shot caught up her  youngest child whicli was playing on  tho floor and ran through the front  room out to the sidewalk, about If)  feet, where she dropped dead. Thc  screams of the dying woman brought  the neighbors to the awful scene.  Her four little children wore playing  at a tea party on the lawn, and they  saw the murderer run through ths  back yard in lhc direction of the  Northern Pacific station, whicli is  situated on Ninth street between  Princess and 1-ouise avenues, directly  opposite the Brandon Pump factory.  The station is about 300 yards from  the house where thc murder took place  and it is supposed that the murderer  traversed Louise avenue and bafiled  his pursuers among tlie cars standing  in thc goods yard, which extends south  from ihe station*.  A Ci'icia. answering to thc description of ihe murderer was caught  by a bi.aich i arty and taken to the  polico station. Shouts of "the rope"  and "hang him" were heard from the  excited crowd, hut through the management of the cooler heads the prisoner was soon placed securely behind  the bars.  The servani girl was brought to the  stalion to identify the tramp but failed  to do so.  As soon as it was found thai the  wrong man had been, taken, Chief  Kirkalciy organized a search party,  consisting of live or six hundred citizens, who volunteered their services,  as well as the military, aud in less  than half an hour the bush along the  Assiniboine river was filled with  searchers. A detachment was sent  out on every train to scour the country and every avenue of escape will be  carefully guarded during the night.  . AVinnipeg July (i.���������At 1 o'clock this  morning it was reported that a man  was arrested ai Sidney for tho murder at Brandon. Ho- was lying on  the grass outside the water tank.  The person previously confined in the  tank house was ��������� placed there for  stealing a ride, .the agent not knowing then  of lhe murder.  Braudon. Man., July 7.���������That the  murderer of Mrs. I.ane is caught tliere  is as yet no certainly, although a  chain of strong evidence is weaving  ilself around tlie neck of the Galician,  Peter German, who was arrested yesterday. He .seems inciiuerent to his  awful position and refuses to give any  ' authentic explanation. * There are a  nuinber of peoplo who saw him run  from the vicinity of the crime shortly  after the deed was committed. The  suspected. Galician comes from Medicine Hat. where he has been working  on the railroad, and was on his way  to Stuartburn. where his wife and two  children live. Detectives McKenzie  and Cox tire both here assisting in  the investigation of the murder. After  a thorough examination of thc  prisoner he was taken to the provincial jail, where he will wait pending the decision of the coroner's jury,  whicli was sworn in yesterday and  will meet tonight. A post mortem  examination is now being held. Talbot,  who was leading the search party  looking for anything that might lead  to a clue of the murderer, has succeeded in .finding the revolver that  did the awful deed. It was found  hidden under a lime barrel in the lane  at the back of tlie house.  NARROW ESCAPE OF KING MILAN  An Assassin Fires Several Shots with  a   Revolver  Belgrade, .Servia, July 7.���������Former  King Milan, Lho father of King Alexander of Servia, narrowly escaped assassination here this evening. The  ex-king "was slightly wounded in the  back. His assailant, who is under  arrest, is aboul 2S years old and is not  yet identified. Ho fired four revolver shots, one of which slightly  grazod his majesty, another wounding  lhe hand of Adjutant Lukitch, who  was with him. At the time of the  attack, which was about G:30, the ex-  King of Servia was driving through;  Michael Street in an open carriage.  On his return to the palace tho ex-king  received the congratulations of the  members of the cabinet and diplomatic  corps upon his escape. Later in the  evening King Alexander drove  through Michael Street and was received enthusiastically by the people  of the city.  FEARFUL Pl.OODS IN TEXAS  ForL AVorth, Texas, July li.���������A telephone message was received from  Deputv- Sheriff Sweringen at Calvert  today to the effect that 200 lives wero  lost in .a Hood within a radius of 30  miles ol* Sealey last night and that  today nearly a hundred were drowned  in iho vicinity or Mount, a small piece  of high land near old San Filipe to  which hundreds of negroes lied from  Biazos bottoms taking their horses  and cattle. The waters have grndiially  encroached upon them until only about  half an acre of the place remains.  Tliis water will probably sweep away  all before morning. The 300 negroes  are huddled together tonight with  death starving theni in the face.  Drowning is almost sure while starvation is certain. The nearest point of  laud is three miles away. There is  much devastation in AValer, Port Dciid  and Grimes, and numerous other counties along the lower course of tho  Urazos river and the Colorado river.  It is much greater than was uniicipa-  led by earlier reports.

I have no intention of leaving federal politics. Iassumo that if  Hon. Joseph Martin, will resign when  Litutcnant Governor Mclnnes returns  from Atlin, the whole government  will have to throw up the sponge.  Then Jlr. Turner should be called to  form a ministry. I belive If an election follows it shall he fought out on  party lines and 1 have always thought  so. With regard to the Yukon  charges. I was not surprised to note  that the London Times had censured  the government for its delay. Hon.  Clifford Sifton's defence is weak. He  made no denial of the charges."

Lowery, editor and financier of the  New Denver Ledge :  " Life is what we make it, and  others. There nre two trails in front  of ns when wu start out. iu life. The  high trail is hard to climb, but it has  pure air and association. If vou keep  plodding, even if your pack is heavy,  you will eventually strike a camp  where all is pence, contentment,  health and sometimes wealth.  The low trail looks nicer than the  high one, when you lirst start in.  Along the first few miles of it everything seems gilded and this life one  continual holiday. Afler awhile the  scene changes und you lind strewn  along the trail, which by this time lias  had tho gilt rubbed oil', wrecks of the  human nice. Yon will find that the  formation is hell and that the victims  who have been truciug leads of hoo_-  erino. green cloth and red curtains,  wind up, unless they turn Irick,  against t.he same formation���������hell.  I have a friend in Toronto who took  the high trail in his youth. His name  is A. F. Rutter. By his own efforts  he 1ms become one of the most prominent and honored men of Toronto.  While yet 11 young man he has all  that makes life comfortable, and has  passed all the rough places on the  high trail.  Passing along York street one dark,  wet night, a man stopped me and  begged for 10 cents so Hint be could  get shelter. He was a wreck in every  sense of the word. He had lived the.  pace that kills about as effectually us  anyone 1 have overseen. I recognized  him through all the changes made by  dissipation. I gave him a dime nnd as  turned away iny thoughts ran back  20 years to a young man, wealthy and  brilliant, who was admired by all who  knew hiin. I will not tell his name,  for the sake of his family who think  he is dead. Poor follow! lie has hit.  the low trail, and hit it so hard that,  uo power under heaven could puck  him buck to the wagon road of health  and usefulness. Gentle readers keep off  the low trail und you will always have  money to pay the printer.  A  Good   List  of   Events  and  An   Ai  Prize List.

The Lanlo-Duncan district is still  attracting considerable attention,prospectors are rushing in from all parts of  the country. The three low ns,Duncan  City, Argenta and Lardo, are enjoying  quite a boom nnd new buildings are  being put up as fast as material can be  had. The new owners of the Bnn-  nockbm-n group intend to put a force  of men at woik to open up that property at once.  xV recent Chinese convert, to Chi-is-  Jjjinit v.  .was  -nonuliirsed _ when   the!  NOT FOR JOSEPH  Papers on   bolh sides  of  provincial  politics  are just   now  teeming   with  surmises ns to   probable-combinations  in the shuffle  of the   political   cards,  whicli is  now   felt   to   be   inevitable.  These forecasts seem'to the Hekald  to be all based on a  false  supposition,  the idea that Mr. Martin   will  resign.  The Hewaltj does not think  this con-  ,' lingeiicy is at all probable.   Prophesying is  proverbially   dangerous  work,  but the most likely sequence of events  seems to tho Herald to  ho that Mr.  Martin   will   not   voluntarily   resign,  that the Lieutenant-Governor will not  find cause  to  request him   to   do so,  that the people who will do the resigning will be Messrs. Marti 11 and Cotton,  and that Mr. Martin will appeal to the  constituencies   to support  a   government of which he will be the  tiominal  ns well us the   real  lender.    The  fight  iii the .approaching   election   will  for  the lirst Utile, in  the  history   of  the  province  be   between   principles,   the  radical unci populistie. element supporting Mr. Mill-tin .and  the  Conservative  and business portion of the community  being ranged against, him.    It remains  to   be   seen   bow   far   Mr.     iMartin's  appeal to the lnhor unions  and   working men  of lhe   province,   will carry  him.    Ijhe   Herald  believes that he  has miscalculated his present strength,  but he will no doubt be prepared with  nn attractive  und  vote-catching  programme, and it will ho a great mistake  to 1111derr.it e his  powers,   as   great  a  mistake as the const papers nre making  in imagining that they have got  him  downed now.    Mr. Martin is a dangerous  muo,   but   at   the   same   time  a  strong man.    Politically his opponents  are only  amateurs  alongside  of him:  so   fur    from    discouraging   him,   it  j seems to the Herald that the present,  lifairs���������is���������giving-hinr  FARM   FOR   SALE CHEAP.  ATTENTION  Jlr. Kellie told the Herald on Monday that the Standard group wus no  good and that ho would not, take the  wholo group as a gift. The owners  have no intention of making Mr  Kellie nn offer as a gift of the property.  And the fact that Mr. Kellie. has  stated that the property is no good  does not condemn the same in the  sight of anyone who knows the property and its possibilities.  " There is not a Tory paper in tlie  Domihion of Canada." says thu Victoria Times, '���������hardy enough to maintain that Sir Charles Hibbert did not  fail, utterly, miserably, to make good  his slanderous charges." This is a  stupid remark to make, although 11  common one jusl*. now in the Ministerial Press. Sir Charles Hibberl  Tupper did not expect, nor did he  attempt, "to make good" his charges  on the floor _of the House. What he  did do was to make the charges and  nsk for a commission to investigate.  He went further, however, and  pledged himself lo withdraw from  parliament if he failed to establish  them. If the govern ment were confident of their innocence and the innocence of their emplovees, they could  "have rid themselves of a dangerous  opponent by the very simple expedient  of granting the commission; but this'  they refused. I'lie^ discredited party  in t.he ruse i.s not rfir Charles Hibberl.  but the Dominion Government, and as  lime passes the popular mind will  become moro and more conscious of  the fact.���������Nelson Mine"'.

We hnve seen the ill effects  of busty  legislation;    we   hnve    seen   ]irogrcss  arrested on all sides by   the  policy  of  false economy pursued by the  present  government.    Whnt  is  required  is  a  liroiul. liberal policy which will  result  in the speedy opening up and development of   the  country,   encourage  the  introduction     of    capital   and   bring  nbout, un increase in population.     We  have   11 country  tn-irvellously rich in  natural     resources   und    immense  in  extent.    It ought  to   be  the  scene  of  tbe greatest activity of nny country in  the   world.    Hut   what   is   the   fact?  Owing to the  piciiyimisli   policy  pursued by the govern ment, itstumpering  with   our   mining   laws,   nnd   unwise  legislation generally, it is shunned  by  cnpilnlisls  nnd   brought   into   evil  repute in the eyes of  the  entire   world.  II. is time  for  11   change.   ..Intriguing  demagogues  must  no   longer  be  per-  mil t'.'d lo llitotlle industry   nnd   stifle  progress.

Come on McDult and show  yonr pluck,  opened up nnd the bind made available  for settlement. The voice of the agitator who shouts '-ruin" must be  drowned by the hum of industry. The  country must, tie governed on business  lines.  The press of the country of all shades  of politics should unite in a demand  for the promulgation ol !i\ policy ..which  aims at progress immediate and resistless.
