The exPreinter having made this  statement the Chief Commissioner  fully corroborated It nnd stated that  Mr. Tavlor informed htm that'two  members of the Monte were in the  deal, hut he did not get tlieir names. ,  When lhe House met on Monday it  wns announced that the Governor  would give his at-sent to the lteclssioii  Act, wl i.h he did shortly nfter as well  a.4 to all-Bills (hat hud passed their  third reading.

Today W. J. * Taj lor absolutely  denied the truth of the Chief Commis"  Hioner'b evidence und slated practically  that Mr. Wells approached hiin on the  matter. Pint of'the conveisation as  sworn to by Tavlor is as foi ows: ,  Mr. Wells:   "The company  sbo.ild  -do-something^foi���������us���������Theie.will be  twenty oi thirty thousandtuies in it."  Mr. Taylor. "Who lot? You ot the  Government?" and remarked that  attei going round 10or 20 there viotild  uoi be much left.  Mi.

Wells, itis ii^vety unusual thing  for a Minister to go tnund-with Crown  grants in his pocket sparring for ter mn.  The flist thing you know you will hnve  people saying ihat you are trying to  hold some one up."  Mr. Wells said that he could explain  it satisfactorily.  Mi. Taylor: "Perhaps yon can to  yourself, but can you to the pnblii?"  Su Thomas Shaughnessy is idignant  at Wells' version of the deal and will  probihly come heie and give evidence.  Buiiionr is nusy as to what the  Premier will do, it being lealizedlhat  the present Govei nment c.mtiot stand.  A man very close to Col.

In the event of Ihis couise being  pui'Rut'd he staled that Chits.

Refui elite was made in a recent issue  to some of the extensive placer giouuds  on I he east side of the Columbia liver,  ���������tbove Revelstoke, so it is pioposed  now to deal briefly with Smith cieek  on the west side, which flows into the  Columbia about, 50 miles above this  city. In eaily days tbe creek in  question was extensively worked by  placer miueis but not as much attention was paid to it as to Gold stream  ���������u*$l its tiiUutaii-s.paiticuIailv French  and McCullough "cieeks. With the  ���������id\ent of impioved methods of mining  tnd the peifucting of monitors the  woik of sluicing surf.ice deposits has  been lendeied comparatively easy and  deep p.iy gi.iv-L'l is ill lis made accessible  without the sinking and tunnelling  foiiii"ily the universal practice in  mining old < li innels. OnJSiinth cieek,  howevet the wtuk at piesent done has  been moie in the direction of sinking  and dulling than hydiuulic washing,  although on the Howard claim, some  distance to the north, tt couple of  gi mtjs aio provided for.  The principal enterprises on Smith  cieek have, so fin, been the McCarty  claim, and, adjoining it," the Blue Jay  which is held by the Duquesne Mining  Company. The work on the McCarty  ground has been more in the nature of  piospecting lli.iu actual mining, but  theiesults obtained wan.tnt the comment einent of operations on an extensive scale which will be taken in hand  ns soon as possible. *, Tbe shaft will be  continued to bed rock and drifting  commenced to woik the rich auriferous  deposits.whicli prospecting has shown  to exist in the vicinity. On the Bine  Jay, Mi. E. A. Bind ley, the manager,  has spent a large quantity of money  and each season repot ted the results'  obtained as most satisfactory.' He i.s  now in the east on business connected  with mining in the Big Bend and on  his leturn, will lesume opeiations'on  Smith i reek.  JTurning loathe discover ies of mineral  to _>lace.*lotated4under, the provisions"  *o"f- the' _Vfinieral ActJ in'TheBrgB'end  country, the. indications are exceeding promising. Almost withru sight  of, Revelstoke, to the noith west is  *Jord to Pass and about 15 miles up the  creek imining through it, the Jordan  group of claims was located,.which a  small amount of development' work  has proved to be of moie than average  value. These propel tie's will come  into prominence in the near fiituie.  Advening to the east bide of, the  Columbia the Hist mineral locatious'of  any pioied lmpoititiue ate about eiuht  mrl'sup Lilormetieek whnhenteis  thenvei some 20'miles.above Revel  stoke. The grea' est amount of development has been done on the "Adair,  and McCallum groups, which 'ate  adjoining and   run < practically north  andsnulh from the .head of the two  '���������ranches of the creek' in question.  The Kuieka < laun in the Adair group  has been wot ked moie extensively  than tho otheis and a two foot vein of  chaltopvnte was encutinteied in one  of the tunnels. Theoies of this section  geneially me similar in appearauce to  some of those of Rossland, tnd cairy  good values in gold, silver and copper.  Some of the veins, howeiei, consist of  copper sulphides, carrying from 4 to  1 oz. of gold, and will, in the ueai  fnt lire, he of gi eat vii'ue. The owners  of all the claims in this vicinity are  steadily woikmg them'.witli a view to  f iitm e opei ations as sopu as adequate  ti asportation facilities are supplied.  Continuing to the noith the next  notable mineral tamp,, is on dunes  creek, about eight miles to the north  of L'i for tne. The principal develop  merit on this creek has heen done hy  theCtrnes Cieek 'Consolidated Gold  Mines, Limited, that owns the Rose  berry group of eight claimaon Lookout  mountain, between the noith and  south foi ks. Some 700 feet of development work has been done and about  $20,000 expended on the properties of  ihi-j* company since their location in  1807. All of the claims are Crown  Granted and the company has a mill  site of 155 acres on the north fork. A  minetal zone upwards of 50 feet in  width has been found aud gold values  weie obtained throughout, together  with fiom" 8 to 10 per cent copper.  Arsenical pyrites, carrymg gold and  silver .and ehalcopyrite (yellow copper)  lvtve also been "encountered." Many  mining men of prominence have  leported on these properties including  W. Pellew Har vey. F.C S.*, Francis J.  O'Reilly. A.M.I C E.. ,,md. H. Perty  Leake, M.E , of Revelstoke. All these  authorities speak highly of the pio  perttes and Mr. Harvey estimates that  the aisenical pyrites can be treated by  the cyanide process for $3.50 per Ion  and 87 per cent of the gold recovered.  As the value of, th_ oie assayed by  hi in. was $22, it can.' bet seen that the  priopetties are exceedingly valuable.  Development has already proved a  continuous ore body���������pf 200 feet at  least from the surface which increases  in value as depth is reached.       <  lt may be sard, in,conclusion, that  all the mineial locations'.,from Giound  Hog basin south, appear to be on a  well defined'^ mineral**-, belt running  practically parullel with the Columbia  and about 4 *to*"6 "miles east. ..This  makes the supposition "tenable that, a  careful investigation->."v'ill show ^a  distinct connection-;between the free  gold of Fish river camp-jind those of  the; basin mentionedj^^If such*is the  ra������e~only*'KU_������sp������-Tt-rt*tioir^'d4ffieul.tl,e8  can prevent-iil! tn#mterrneduitfecamps  fioin coming into ptominenLe shnitly.

After the "time of purging" during  which' the monarchy of England wits  merged in the Oommonivealth with  Oliver Cromwell and , afterwards his  unfortunate brother Richard at the  head of affairs, the royal succession  was, restored on May Sih, 10G0, by the  accession of Charles the Second to the  the throne. The liberty of the subject,  for which the limndheads fought, has  been greatly enhanced since the  rebellion of 16.0, and wc can look back  with pride at the history of the succeeding centuiies as  "   *   *   freedom slowly broaden!, down  " i'roni precedent to precedent."  THE STORM CENTRE  The storm centre'of the Columbia  and "Western investigation has apparently shifted. As will ��������� be seen in  another column, Sir. W. J. Taylor,  law partner -of Hon. D. M. Eherts,  offered the Chief Commissioner a bribe  of 30.000 acres of coal and oil lands if  he would complete the notorious deal  with the C. P. R. In justice to Air.  "WelU it must be said he refused the  bribe, but why he did not at once  infonu the Premier rather than leave  it to come to Air. Dunsmuir's ears  through other, sources, we are at a  loss to understand* How Air. Dunsmuir could retain the over discreet  Air. Wells and the law partner of the  -alle*i;CTl-=briber���������in*=his-contidence and  let them remain his colleagues in the  government is a matter that should  lie sifted to the boitom. No member  of the House who votes otherwise than  to turn the rascals out will be worthy  of the votes of his constituent--. Gen  tlemet). itV up to you.  particular,   would   not  exist   if   this  branch of the city service was properly  attended to and an adequate supply of  water forthcoming during the summer  season.     Pure   water and lots of it is  an absolute necessity if thc health of  our citizens is to be preserved, and wc  are   sure   the   ratepayers, as   a body,  would be willing to submit to a higher  tax levy   if   this proposed profit were  eliminated and spent where it rightly  belongs���������in "the provision   of  an improved   and   enlarged     water   works  system.      This' juggling with the city  funds   makes the   separation of  civic  monopolies   and     civic    taxation   an  absolute   necessity.     In all up to date  cities   enterprises  of   this   kind     are  managed   by   Commissioners,  totally  absolved from   control   by the council  as far as   tho application of  profits-is  concerned, and   if   some   step   is not  taken in this  direction by Kevelstoke,  or   the* present   methods   very much  altered, wc   shall   havo a lew general  taxation at the expense of   the public  health.  iii UTUA L CONCILIA TION.  CIVIC JUGGLING.  The calm assurance with'which the  Mayor and City Council pat one  another on the back regarding expected profits from the municipal water  and electric light works would be  amusing, if there'-was not a niorr*  serious side to thc matter. The Hev-  Alr. Stiggins was no'more a hypocrite  than are the gentlemen in question  who. as late as Alarch 27th, growled  at provincial water rentals being toe  high in respect -of these works that  "were not run for profit but as ar,  improvement to the city." And yet,  out of these yclept unprofitable, works,  they propose to provide for practically  all the civic improvements and relieve  the general lax(>ayer from any lev*,  on this behalf.  To put it shortly, a citizen who it  enterprising enough to. use both civil  water and light has to pay far too  ���������much for them, so that the annua)  levy for municipal improvements shall  look nice on paper, and relieve tin  large body of citizens, who do not usi  both. these commodities, from paying  their proper share of taxation. And  JJje profit from tho  water  works, in  This method of disposing cf trouble  between employer and employee lias  been most extensively employed in  tbe bituminous coal fields of the  United States, and a synopsis of the  results there obtained will, for the  purposes of this article, be the best;  means of illtislnting its effects. The  latest oflicial document available  dealing with the matter is the "Coal  Hi-port of the Illinois Bureau of Labor  Statistics. 1000" which contains some  very interesting and instructive data.  Tbe Secretary to the Bureau in question writing to the ._$/. V. Alining  Recotd in October, 1001, said:   "Whal  i s-k n own as the-j ol 11 f or mterstiite  organization resulted from the suspension which occurred in the summer of  1S07. While the miners at that time  ������v������*re but partially organized, so miserable had their posilion become, that  tlie order to suspend was generally  complied with. In lhe fall of that  year representatives of thc miner-" iiikI  operators met in national convention,  and'formed- the present nrganiz-itiom  It embraces the competitive coal fields  of Pennsylvania. Indiana. Ohio anil  Illinois. I might*, say that the real  basis of the movement is the'inutiuil  recognition of the right to treat with  ���������*ach other as an organized body, find  ill contracts' nlrectiu'g mining prices  md wages of other classes of labor uie  .���������or.sntniiinled through duly selected  li'legates representing both interesls.  These agreements continue "for on*-  ye-ir, and have been scrupulously  observed.  "The States forming the; national  ugaiiization hold separate conventions  for: the. purpose of adjusting matlers  total lo them. Where any disagree  mfiit,irises at any point between the  miners and operators, representatives  if each interest arc .selected to ascertain whether or not the general  igi'fcment between miners and opei-  ���������itnrs has been infringed upon, the  understanding in every case being  tliat work will not be suspended or  bti-ilness in any way interrupted, pending such investigation.  "The operators of this and thc other  dlnles appoint commissiotiers at. a  regular salary, whose principal duties  ire to  meet  with   representatives) ofj;  the miners, and see to it^tli.it the  provisions ot the 'stale,' as it is>tailed,  is eveiywheie obseiied and complied  with."  We  will   further   qucte   fiom    the  repot L mentioned:     "Sinie   the li'dei'  'ation   ii.is   effected,   with     but    lew  exceptions, tbe li.idehas sucteeded in  avoiding the di*-.igreeiiK'iils   that lead  lostnkes.     Tire   plan lesponsihie  for  these   lesnits   does   not   piesume   to  remove t.iu-ips of discussion, ot even to  discourage legitimate agitation, but to  apply whole    difleientes     ,11 ise���������and  they are muneious���������the taie elements  of  common   sense.     In shoi t, it is the  long delayed acceptance of the invita'  tion extended Iiy the ancient piophet  of   Tsinel,    "Come,   let us  leason   together."     Out  of  it has come many  substantial   benefits   to     the   mineis.  .Wages have been mateiially incieased;  thu not king  d ty   1 educed  to     eight  hours: semi   monthly   payments;   the  genet.d adoption in tins  State of   the  mine 1 un system; the lecognition, not  only   of    the    organisation,   but     its  practical admission hy the employeit,  as a joint   pnitnet   in   thc   business.  Many of  these  concessions have been  made possible,   not   because  of    the  union     alone,    but   on    account     of  improved conditions.    Organisation of  itself,   however  strong, may  coultol,  tint it cannot creatP.      Tt is no dispar*  agement of the present method   to say  that,   back of   the friendly alliance oi  these  interests aie the fruitful, causes  that have recently  contributed to our  great   indiisttial   revival, and itis the  wish of .ill that they might coDlinue.  Having set outan official i_port of  the scheme of mutual conciliation, we  will now givp a confirmatoiy slate*  mfnt of veiy recent date as to its  result's. Senator Alarcns A.
