When    the    people    stopped   JCor  bieath the governor hastily proceeded, and with frequent pauses,  in an attempt to overawe the  assemblage into homing him, he  read ihc brief parting message. It  contained no direct reference to the  ministerial upheaval, but proceeded  to note that "although you have  been sitting almost to a day for the  same period of time occupied by  the house last year, there has been  practically no woik accomplished.

Then his honor departed pursued  by the hisses and taunts of the galleries, and as ho disappeared the  members returned in a football  rii"=h headed by Ellison and Pooley,  pat spcalcer Molester in tho chair  and passed a patriotic icsolution  respecting the achievements of the  imperial and colonial troops in  Af 1 ica aud dispersed. Subsequently  members of Semlin's party held a  caucus as a result of wliich it was  officially communicated to the  press that Semlin had resigned the  ieadeiship aud Cotton had been  unanimously chosen his successor.  They decided to oppose the introduction of federal party linos in  .piovincial polities.  Victoria, March 1.���The letter of  dismissal to Semlin is made  public  in   the  official  gazette  this  week.  The  governor  notes that "circumstances have occurred during the  last niuo months and more particu-  laily dining the last five months to  lii.itcr'tdly weaken  the confidence  that J had in your advice���circumstances quite apart from 'the fact  "of your having lost the  confidence"  of the logislitive assembly."   These  circumstances   the   governor   proceeds to detail, referring first to the  fact of the incomplete cabinet and  the prolonged holding by Cotton of  the  lands and  woiks portfolio in  addition  to  that   of   finance   and  nsrlculfcuio,   which   was   to   have  been temporaly.    Tt is recited that  on August yoth the governor protested that hio request of the week  before that tiie house be called for  not later than October 20th   had  met witli no response, and insisted  that tho house shall meet by  then  or th it thei e shall be a  dissolution  and a gopeial election, raying also :  "J do "not ihink that 1 should any  longer ignore the existing political  conditions iu thi= piovince, and the  unrest and   uncertainty   resulting  fiom    recCut     political     changes,  changes which it Avill not be necessary to specify.   It is sufficient, I  think, that gLave doubt now exists  as to whether your administration  retains the confidence of the legislative    assembly."    The    ministers  thereupon assured  his  honor  and  got Jiis consent to call the leghda-  tuto for January.    iSText his honor  objects to the  request  on  October  1-Sth for three special warrants  111-  eluding"one"for"# 15,000 for tlie~Roa~s^  land   coiut    house,   ''being   thiee  times larger than  any   authorized  b\- the legislature."'    He objects to  the \ ability   of the  warrants  aud  incidentally alleges that the busi-  ucbfa of the land-: and works department is being rctaided by the fact  nt Pol ton's occupancy of dual portfolio-, it being  impossible for  one  mini-tor to transact all the work  piopoily.  Since tiie legislature has been in  f-cs=ion, hi1- honor proceeds, he has  been asked to authoii'/e, by order-  in-couneil, the cancellation of certificates of improvements of mineral claim.-*, and he holds that this  was an impioper attempt to assume  the functions of the legislative  assembly, which should havo been  af-lcqd for an amending bill. The  e 1-0 of one Dunlop was> involved in  this iC(juos(. Jlis honor proceeds:  'Apait fiom all this, I cannot  ignore the fact that the legislative  asbembly lias now been iu session  for nearly two months, and notwithstanding the confidence you  cxpicssed in  your  letter to me of  dency of the Scotti-h Libei.d A^-o-  ciation, a post lie h.id held for  twenty ycarl; aKo the honoiary  presidency of the Midlothian Liberal Association, which ho held since  formation.

ALL   NELSON   CELEBRATES  Buller's Victory.  The citizens of Nelson celebrated  right royally the gtcat \ietorics  achieved within the past few days  by the Biitish arms in South Afi ica.  The whole city joined in the demonstration, which was easily among  the most enthusiaf-tic over witnessed in the quotjn city of the  Kootenays. The proRiechngg opened  at nightfall and continued for several hours. Cheeis. fiieworks and  music weio the predominating features, and the muddy streets had  no effect on tho spirits of the crowd.  Soon after six o'clock the popping  of firecrackers warned citizens that  the demonstrators were warming  up for the evening's celebration  and a gencial exodus toward the  centie of tho city speedily became  apparent. 13y degrees tho enthusiasm  rose  and  tho  outwaid  c\ 1-  IJh u kith 0-3 haven't heaid f'om  him in yo.u-s and had no idea of his  wealth until the administiatois oi  the estate began to look up the  licditful hciis.

Before enacting any more legislation in favor of the wage-earners
of the province the Laurier government would do better  to enforce
such legislation Of the kind as is already upon the statute book.   The
politicians    will   not   deceive   the
members of the labor party by enacting    the Natal   Exclusion Act,
while at the same time they permit
almost daily breaches of the alien
labor law.    What will it profit the
1 wage-earners   of this  province  to
have the bill, proposed by W. W.
B. Mclunes, put upou the statute
book, if they have not some assurance that the government wdll see
that its provisions are carried out?
Do the wage-earners of British Columbia ask too much of their representatives in the house of commons
when they demand that due force
be given to the findings of their
parliament ? that breaches  of the
law by capitalists be punished as
speedily as breaches of the law by
Avorking men.   "When a politician
has a chance to win golden opinions
for himself by simply insisting upon the observance,of law and order
ho is slow if he does not take advantage of it; nor is he worthy
of the position which he holds.
government also proposes to fight
the federal and imperial governments to a finish upon the matter
of the disallowance of the anti-
Japanese legislation. It wdll stand
by the eight-hour law, the principles enunciated by the opposition
iu the general elections in 1898, and
legislation passed during the session of 1S09. For so young a government there is nothing small
about its programme. Without
Wishing to bo unkind it might almost be said that wdiat the new
government lacks in strength is
more than made up in programme.

Any man who litis been iu a modern fight, whore men are knocked  over all uronnd, and says he likes  il-, is���writes a correspondent in the  \. Daily   News���a  liar.     In    former  days  it must have been different.  The enemy could be seen, the smoke  |; could be seen, and the l'ifle had to  be  reloaded after every shot.    At  |' 1000 yards you were in comparative  Uwfety.    The infantry, after receiv-  I'ing one volley, could charge, knowing that until the enemy had load-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  ed again each man was practically  safe.   Nowadays that is all changed.  Nothing is seen, no man, no smoke.  The  only  thing  seen  is  the  dust  thrown  up by the bullets, like a  rainstorm  on  the   surface  of   the  lake, the artillery throwing shells,  and  the shells  bursting.    In  contrast to this is the noise, which is  infernal;  with   occasional lulls  it  sound as if a million kettle-drums  were being played���a constant tra-  ra-ra-ra, with  tho  boom, boom of  the big guns and the harsher sound  of  the   pumping   of   the  Maxims,  Hotchkiss,     Maxim - Nordenfeldts,  and machine guns in general.    The  discord is appalling, as every gun  has a different sound, and each shell  going    through   the   air   hums or  whistles   according,  to   its   breed.  After a time you can tell what is  coming or, if it is one of your own,  what is  going.    The most terrifying of the enemy's guns is a sort of  Hotchkiss,    which throws   a   one-  pound shell which bursts.    You are  safe nowhere, as a bullet, fired at  an   object    at   800   yards,   which  misses, hits and kills at 2000   or  5000.    It practically means   with  these rifles that a bullet is never  spent until it hits something and  remains   there.     When   a   bullet  strikes you hear nothing; it goes  right through a man and probably  travels,  on   another    2000   yards.  You hear a grunt or a gurgle, and  the man collapses and doubles up;  sometimes if hit on the arm or leg  he spins round and falls and probably gets up again, as it is only the  shock which knocks him down, and  he hardly feels it.    The worst thing  is a bullet wound in the stomach  below the navel, which is mortal.  The pain {is excruciating, and they  howl like a shot hare; it sounds  like   a    child   screaming,    and   is  horrible.

"A_,pl>TAYLOK & H^xNlNGTON, Solicitor*.  GENERAL HECTOR MACDONALD,  Brigadier-general Hector Mtie-  donakl���Fighting Mac���lias gone to  the front, and it is to bo hoped  that iiis proverbial luck will follow  Iiiin, says the London Daily Mail.  IJcolor Macdonald's 'career is too  well known to need repetition.  From tho beginning, when he  walked into Glasgow, nome say  barefooted, to his Omdimnau days,  it is nothing but a splendid record  of strength of purpose and personal  heroism, In appeareuce he looks  just the vigorous soldier he is���-  moderately tall, breadth of chest  (though of not sufficient breadth to  carry till his medals), and with a  square, upright and downright look  about him. , His face is typically  Highland in its hard, regular contour, and the straight, fearless eyes.  -Macdonald * has never forgotten  Majuba. Though taken prisoner  ou that unhappy dny�� lltJ remained  to the end unbeaten, for when, after  a desperate resistance, he was at  last unarmed and a couple of Boers  ran at him, Macdonald met them  with his naked fihts, and his assailants went reeling back. Finding  him so hard to tackle, they were  for putting a bullet through his  head, but a Boer with an appreciation of pluck intervened.  "No," he .'-aid, "this is a brave  man, and wo shall spare him. Let  us take him prisoner at all hazard*."  In f-pite, however, of the warm  liking he inspired in those above  ami under him, it i.s on record that  sonic of hi.s dusky Soudanese once  mutinied against him. Macdonald's  method of dealing with the outbreak once again illustrates the man.  His regiment had of necessity to  make long forced marches under  the fierce desert sun, and the .conditions were so hard that the men-  became mutinous. One day during  the march Macdonald overboard  -two or three of the native soldiers  saying: "Wait till the next fight,  I "will take care that this slave  driver of a colonel does not come  out aliyo. I myself will shoot him."  Macdonald recognized the men  by their, voices, called a halt, and  sternly ordered the culprits to step  forth from the ranks. Facing them  he cried:  "Now, you are the men who are  going to shoot me in the next light.  Why wait so Jong ? Why not do  it now? 'Here I am, shoot me���if  you dare!"  The rebels grounded their arms  in sullen silence.  "Why don't you shoot?" asked  their colonel.  "Because you don't seem to care  whether you die or not," and .that  reluctant answer explained the secret of Macdonald's power over half  savage soldiers.  Many stories are told of his ways  of dealing with his excitable and  childlike .Soudanese battalions; aud  in the anonymous Soudan campaign  just published by Chapman & Hall,  is a new one.  After the Abu Hamed fight, colonel Macdonald had soundly rated  the men  who began the indepen  dent firing without orders. Well,  one night at Berber, colonel Macdonald while sleeping as usual in the  court yard round his hutywas woke  up by a black soldier properly  dressed in drill order without arms.  When asked what he wanted, he  said:  "My battalion is very sorry that  you are angry with them for firing  without orders at Abu Hamed, for  we know best what to do; we have  been fighting since we were boys,  we know the Dervishes and avc  know the best way to turn them  out of a place: so just you leave  things to us ~ and we'll -pull you  through."  The black then turned about and  was outside the courtyard before  colonel Macdonald recovered from  his surprise and exploded.  Though ho has boon through so  many actions, though the scieam of  shell and the whirr of the Muxim  are mere commonplaces to him.  Brigadier-general Macdonald is>  rather a retiring man, and when  once asked what it felt like to be in  the midst of battle he quietly and  characteristically answered: "I  don't think you feel anything in  particular."'  A brave man Macdonald's record  proves him to be, but that in itself  is not enough for the present military situation in South Africa. No  one doubts the courage of our officers out there, but some of them  have blindly walked into Boer  traps.  The soldier of whom Bonnet Bur  leigh wrote this just panegyric is  tho sort of a man wanted iu South  Africa. , .  "Had the brilliant, the 'splendid  deed of arms wrought by Macdonald been done under tho eyes of a  sovereign or in some other armies,  he had surely beeu created a general ou tho spot."  As commander of the fine Highland Brigade which so recently and  ho sadly lost the. gallant general  Wauehope, Macdonald will have a  largo and splendid sphere of action  before him.  fetffeaUffo  Vernon Street, Nelson.
