RAM LAL'S TEA as a Package Tea  cannot be beat. It has no equal ln the  Market, as a sample package will convince all lovers of good Tea.  C. B. Hume & Co.  The history, of the past week has  certainly yielded to none in interest in  provincial politics. The resignation  nf Mr. IVIiii-tiii. wliich was expected  was followed hy the selection of Mr.  .1., Dtiiisiuuir as his successor, which  certainly was not looked for iu this  portion ofthe province at all events.  Then followed the meeting ��������� of the  convention of members elected as  opponents to Mr. Martin, the first  session of which was marked hy the  dramatic signature of it telegram lo  Ottawa snggestingthat the Lieutenant  Governor's usefulness had departed.  Tliis telegram, unprecedented in the  history of the Dominion, was rendered  still further noteworthy iu that it was  signed hy the three gentlemen, who  had only three days hofore taken  ollice as His Honor's advisers. On  Wednesday this extraordinary protest  of the representatives of an electorate,  goaded heyoud the usual limits of red  tape and oliicial etiquette hore fruit  iu a demand from Ottawa of Mr. Mclnnes' resignation. Determined t.o  maintain the interest of the piece t.o  tlie drop of the curtain liis Honor  refused to do anything of tlie kind  and left nothing for the Federal un-  thoril ies to do hut. to take the course  of dismissing him. Wednesday too  saw the various denominations opposed  to JMf. Miii-Liii united into a govern-  iiient parly pledged to support Mr,  I)iiiisuiuir through the short sessii-n,  whicli will uotne oil' next, mouth to  pass the estimates and perform whatever other routine business is absolutely necessary for the proper conduct  of the government nf the province.  After the session at which no  legislation of a content ioii'si'uitiire is to  lie introduced there is to be a reoiga-  t1i7_.-1t.inn of the cabinet. Such in brief  is the history of the'political week.  The IIkkamj is of I he-opinion that in  view of all the i-iri-iiiiistaui.es of the  case, especially the probability of both  Hon. O. H. Mackintosh and Chas.  Wilson, Q. I... being declared members of the legislature by the courts,  that, the convention arrived at a  common sense and public spirited  solution of tiie dillicullies surrounding  the political situation at present  existing in tliis pro\inee.  2 9������i^P������*3MH^������������������������3M^������������������i������������������K������������^f������l^������J������0t^������JM^kl������lt������JN������A WHMMHMMM*������IHHHHf**JWMHf������*lt*i$  GREAT DEPARTMENTAL STORE  j i ������iSXSS>X������������S)SXsX^^  AN IMPOBTAl-tT OCCASION  ..IN MILIilNEBiY..

Gaiiet H. Van Ilouten and Dr. C.  W, Cornelius weie among those who  visited the Fish River camp in the  Hist part of tlie present month and in  company witli Prof. F. R. Blochberger  of Rossland, managed to see considerable of the country. Mr. Van Hoiilen  has had considerable experience iu  mining in Cripple Creek, ('nl., in  Alaska and elsewhere. Dr. Cornelius  formerly owned extensive mining  interests in Southern Oregon, and his  operations have been successful. Dr.  Cornelius was unfortunate during the  trip, as he sprained his ankle while  examining some Lardea'.i properties,  and was compelled to return to his,  home before he had finished his tusk.  Mr. Van Ilouten. wliile here, established epiite a reputation as a mountaineer.  For nearly to weeks he was out in the  mountains in the Lardeau traveling  on foot from 20 to 30 miles per day  inspecting the various properties in  which he and his Portland frienits are  interested. While here he visited and  inspected the Lardeau properties of  the Skylark Mining company, and of  the Evening Mining company.  Mr. Van Ilouten expressed himself  as greatly pleased wit.li the showings  of the properties which he has examined, und is of the opinion that they  will, witli proper devulopment, make  mines. He further stated that he was  satisfied Hon. D. II. McLauchlan, Mc.  Samuel H.'. Davis and others were  fortunate in becoming interested in  such valuable properties. il would  tend to restore the confidence of Portland investors in mines, some of whom  had heen unfortunate in their investments in Kootenay mines..  Like all shrewd mining men, Mr.  Van Houteii is quite an observer, and  very reticent in his judgment aliout  mines and mining matter. Bis intentions ai e to put considerable, money  in developing their property on Fish  river in Laideau. in which he himself.  Hon. McLauchlan, Sam II. Davis and  Professor Blochberger hold the controlling interest, these ores on these  firoperties pay good sflver values, and  ikeagreat many, also high gold values  Mr. .Van Houleu will be up again  before long to start two shifts and  direct the work: in developing these  promising properties,  A Drillirious Yarn.  The Slocan Drill has lit on a teriible  nightmare or male's'nest, one of the  two. In its last issue it spun the  following yarn, which makes good  copy but seems to lack viasseinb 111 ce:  Tuesday evening last week the Silver  Lead Mines Association held a meeting  in Nelson, at. which'there wasja prelly I  full -attendance ,of Slocan members, j  What >v,*is done there is. of course,  very much of a secret; but, if tlie storv  told The Drill be true, there are dark  days in store for this country���������darker  than has yet been. This paper does not  seek to he. an alarmist, but the situation  looks bad. In substance the story told  The Drill is:  Tlie mine' owners feel acutely the  results of the election on Saturd.-iylast;  the solid vote of the Mineis' Unions  coming much as'aii uncxpert surprise.  They feel tlie Unions will exert their  power to the detriment of the.owneis.  who are prepared to resist the same  by lhe closing down of every mine in  the country. 'Many contend" they cannot make theii- mines pay under the  existing order of things, and the As-o-  ciation will endeavor to obtain the  repeal of the eight hour law, bringing  the wage scale back again to 10 hours  nnd $3.50. Failing this, t hey will close  every mine they control. Jananese  labor is not thought desirable". One  owner is credited with remarking lhat  so long as'the Unions derteimine to  exert theii* influence ai ix. political  factor, just, so long would he closedown every property he has jurisdiction over. *  The above information was given  The Drill Wednesday and it is left to  the public to determine if it be true  or not. As if to lend color to the  statement, liy the down boat from  Denver that day" came the foreman  and seveirme'ri-wh'crhad'b^eiy-w'orkiiig  on the California near that town.  .The -mine had closed down the day  before*. When asked the reason, the.  tneu said they did not know, unless  it Was o win' to tlie elections.���������Slocan  Drill.  Fish River Camp.  Four men have been working for the  last three weeks on a contract on the  Pontiac property, situated just above  the Mohawk.  Chas. McKay, M. Beaton and XV.  Stratton liavebeen doing assessments  on Lexington Basin.  Mr. Woods, the mining engineer f<u-  the various properties whicli Jackson  of Rossland has bonded iu the camp,  took up 14 men la������t week to work on  the Black Bear and Wide West properties. T. Downing went up with  the party.  The Banner ernup nn Lr-xingtnu  creek is another properly in which the  same people are interested and which  Mr. Woods intends to open up this  season.

EMERGENCY RATIONS
Our readers are familiar with the revelations which were made last year
concerning lh_ embalmed beef sup-
Blied to the Linked Stales troops, anil
the narrow escape oC the inreatigatlng
committee when a. till exploded and
they were almost poisone-J. with the
stench.
It will, however, Be" news to learn
that '.an industry of a similar nature
has heen sinned in Canada, which
should under the present a.ainjnistra-
tion prevent over crowding in the
army and yield nn enormous revenue
to its promoters. Lasl weeK the attention of parliament vas called to
the fact that ihe emergency food
rations supplied by tim Canadian
militia department lo the soldiers in
South. Africa was of very inferior
Quality being worth only 10 cents a
pound, although the contractors had
received two dollars. It was further
po'.r.ted out that whereas it was supposed to contain 85 per cent of nutriment, it actually contained only 171-2
per cent.
Instead of making or promising to
make any Investigation into the
matter, the minister of militia became
terribly angry. Such a suggestion was
in his opinion an insult to tho department and to himself and he refused tc
demean himself by bringing down ihu
specifications and contract for the
South African food supply. The
shaker, however, intervened and the
contract  was   ni-oduceil.
It appears now that the minister of
militia ordered some patent stuff
called "J. rotos" at a cost of ?3,000. and
���got���something���instead���icullsd���t:\"it-
aline." but his official inspector never
saw it. and the contract was signed
the day after the offer was made. Tin-
agent was a gentleman suggesilvely
called Devlin, a well known name in
Ontario politics. After the samples
have bsi-n valued and compared with
the contract and specifications; it will
then be in order to enquire whu she
par'.ivs   were  who   divided   th1*   bt��l!a.
mhxts failea Sim a.. ISti ttfosl .Critloal
hour; nor caxt vra -wanaor. wh'eit we
read the language in which, he; has
been  dally   traduced.
It remains to ho seen whether Gen-
oral Andre will be better able than
Ids predecessor to keep the axmr. in
order and to resist the clamor of the
Nationalist rahl>le. He lacks General
Galiffet's prestige, though ho haa oome
reputation as an able and well instructed soldier. His appointment has
boon received wilh evident disfavor "by
the enemies of tho republic, who. as
the municipal elections lately showed
are all powerful in Tarip. There is
iu France a general impression that
the present ministry is purely a stop-
irap one, destined to hold office only
during the exhibition, and to fall as
m.on as thai great show is over. But
those who made this calculation reckoned much upon Galiffet, who was the
aim strong man among a collection of
nobodies. J.l i.s doubtful now if the
ministry has many weeks of otlice
b-ofoiv Ii. Tlie Chamber of Deputies
!o like a powder magazine, and the
���slightest, spark may cause an internal
explosion, upsetting alike the Loubets
u.nd Waldeck-ltousseaus, notwithstanding  the  exhibition.
WOULD NOT CHEER THE QUEEN
(The Hall and Empire).
The* members of parliament who declined to rise nnd sing the National
���Anthem or cheer for the Queen after
Bourassa had made his ' awful pro-
Boer speech were:
Sir "Wilfrid Laurier. ���
Mr. Fielding.
Mr. Fisher.
Mr. Fitzpatrick.
Mr. Godbout.
Mr. Carroll.
Mr. Belcourt.
Mr. Erb.
Mr, Brodeur.
Mr.  Campbell.
Mr. Bourassa.
One report says: "Mr. Archie Campbell, JI. P., for Kent, not only retained his sent, hut also remained wearing
his hat till the middle of the* third
verse of "God  Save the Queen.* "
Mr. Bourassa is a powerful leader
or he could not dominato those 11
members in this extraordinary fashion.

horrors of it mv appalling. Fur every

end. however 'frightful, a business

The conflict in South Africa .'lis
been, peculiarly destructive of repu-

broken some ot the by.sl of Kngli-ii

THE CHINESE PUZZLE
; The present crisis In China owes its
origin  to  one  of those  fanatical  put-
hursts   against  missionary _  zeal    and
enterprise  which    has    marked    with
more or less persistency the relations
that have existed for the last GO years
between the foreign element in China
and   the   native    of    the    soil.      The
"Boxer"  disturbances and riots havd,
without  doubt,   been directed   in   the.
first instance against the missionaries,
and  the  central   power  vested In  the
Dowager   Empress   is    so'   flagrantly
corrupt,    tyrannical      and    pernicious
that she has not only wholly failed to
check,   but   is   believed   to   have   encouraged, the outrages of a set of organized   ruffians    whose    aim    is   to
create- a state of anarchy ln the province   of Pekin.     The  term   "Boxers"
Is   new,   and  the organization    is  apparently an outgrowth of recenl events
for no mention  is made  of this peculiar  association   in   such   historical  descriptions   of   Chinese   secret   societies
as   have   found   their   way   Into   the
hands of fairly well informed students
of  Chinese  affairs.      A society  which
has   done   much  mischief   in  northern
China in   the  past is  the "Big Sword
Society,"' and it is suspected that the
������Boxers"   are   a  modern   development
of   that   organization.       It   has   been
asset-led   over  and over  again by   the
Chinese, missionaries and their friends
thut the   Dowager Empress has instigated  the secret societies  to  frighten
the foreigners, and that behind her Is
Russia   endeavoring  lo foment  confusion   and  anarchy   around    Pekin    in
order to give her a pretext for seizing
the capital    and  the  three*    provinces
of Manchuria, upon which she has set
her eyes.     The moment Russia begins
an aggressive movement -with this end
in view she* is likely  to precipitate  a
war with Japan,  and    ln    a    general
scramble for the divisions of the empire   which     European    nations  Have
ear-marked' a  general  European  war-
may ensue.     It is'in this that the real
danger lies.     No doubt such an eventuality  is  a  possible   outcome  of   the
situation, but it  is.   probable  that  lhe
alertness  of  the powers who  are  less
anxious   to       rush   al       each     other's
throats   than   Japan   and   Russia   and
who have acted with gr,eat unanimity,
will    prevent    a   conflict,   and   at   the
same time ensure   lhat no power shall
aggrandize itself at the expense of tbe
interests of  other  nations.

there was no doubt that repeated acts
of hostility hold been committed from

stifled when there was the conviction
that justice was heing done.

other companies at a profit. Tlie company iilread}* owns and lias paid for in full, the Trilby and Old Saul

The May Bee i.s the sister claim r.o the now famous ]Nrettie L, which has broken all records, in British

ItUBY SII.VKIl UttKKK  A group of good claims is located on  Uaby Silver (.reek, which Hows into  Fish River just north of Lexington,  known as the Union Jack Group, and  having n well-ili.-lined lead carrying  ore which gives verv satisfactory  returns in silver, copper and lead.  HOY I) CltEKK  I.s .situated about nine miles north of  Pool Creek. Thu well-known Gleti-  gary and Kootenay Chief Groups are  situated at, the head of Boyd Creek.  The ore iu galena, assaying 100 oa. in  silver and -10 % lead. Considerable  work was (tone on the Glengary claim  last suminer. and a small shipment of  ore has been made.  Farther down Boyd Creek we find  the Trt'lawney and Chevoit Groups,  supposed to be on the same lead as  the Glengary.  The Westward Ho Group Ins some  nice ore, similar in character to that  of the Glengary. Still fut ther down  Boyd Cieek is the Anaconda Group of  four claims. Some very good ore has  been taken from this gionp. giving  good value in gold and copper. A  tunnel 110 feet long bus been driven  on this property.  iMcDOUGAT. CHEEK  Situated north of Boyd Creek. Some  big iron leads have lately been staked  on this creek. The ore bears a great  resemblance to the Rossland ores, and  recent assays give fair returns in gold  and copper.  McRaechkek  On McRae Creek several new  locations have been made, and some  good-looking rock has been found.  The   Thelm.t   Group,   situated   just  below McRae   Creek,   is another now  location which promises well.      It has  a big quartz lead, carrying copper.  SABLE CHEEK.  Sable Creek flows into Fish River  from the west, about tour miles above  Pool Creek.  The Trilby Group, on the North Fork  of Sable. Creek, has some high grade  ore in sight. Work will be proceeded  with in the spring.  The Revenge Group, near the Trilby  was local etl last sum me.  The Comstock Group of three,  claims, at the head of the North Fork  of Sable Greek, has one of the biggest  showings in the camp.  On the Agnes Branch of Sable Creek  is located the Agnes Group of two  claims. This has a very big lead of  concentrating ore, which assays in  gold, copper and silver.  The Kentish Maid Group is on the  same lead ns the Agnes, but on the  opposite side ofthe creek, and the  Britannia Group is just below.  Two groups of claims, situated on  IheStephnie branch of Sable Creek,  cannot be passed over without comment. These >ire the Coi'nishiiiai* and  Manxman groups, with two claims in  each. The lead is very wide, and the  ore assays fjj-l in gold and 00 oa. in  silver, with some copper and lead.  MEXUENICK CHEEK  Is on the west side of Fish River,  about IA miles above Pool Creek.

The latest report from  this group is that the quartz taken  from the end of the tunnel, which is  in over 30 feet, is as rich as samples  taken from surface.  The Ovster Group is another likely  looking, 'free-milling proposition, very  near the Eva Group, and the quartz is  identical with lhat of thc Eva.  The Brunswick Group of two claims  is situated just north of the Eva.  Some good ore is showing on this  claim, and a small shipment has been  made.  The Highland Mary and Last Chance  situated near the Eva Group, are good  prospects which ought to turn out-  well.  Another galena find, which was  located last.summer on Mineral Hill,  is on the Conmore and Lucky J.ick  Group of five claims. There is a foot  of shipping ore on the Coninore claim.
