Another force, four thousand strong, holds an isolated group of  kopjes south of the Modder and in front of the British mounted  infantry.

THREE DEPUTATIONS WAIT  On the City Council.  Last night seemed to be  deputation night for the  city councillors,  no fewer than  three  civic  deputations  being  in  attendance  at the  couucil to bring matters before the  city fathers. ��� The aldermen present  were  McKillop,  Arthur,   Morrison  land Hall, mayor Houston presiding.  Ex-aldcrman Charles Hillyer and  1). Schimerhorn were a deputation  to urge tho council  to  put Front  street iu  shape for traffic.     They  were backed up by a lengthy petition from" tho business men  along  the street, and a letter from John  Choiditeh   k 'Co.;   both  of which  <lrew attention to  the  almost impassable condition of the street.  On motion of aldermen Kail aud  i Arthur the city engineer was instructed to place enough gravel on  the street to "keep it, in. condition  Ttuitil the macadamising program  v/as ready.  Judge Forin, Charles E. Miller  and F. W. Swannell of the Kootenay Lake General hospital appeared  |.us representatives of the directorate. They urged upon tho aldermen the necessity and advantage  of either taking over the hospital  or making it a substantial grant.  On motion of alderman McKillop  and Hall tho subject was referred  to a committee constituted of the  mayor and  aldermen. Arthur and  |-Morrison  -  The third and last deputation  was from the public library board,  and consisted of E. A. Crease, G.  KydjJ, R. R. Hedley and 11. Bird.  They desired the city to take over  the premises, and the arguments iu  favor of this weie put forward by  Mr. Crease. Mi'. Kydd gave the  financial statement for the year.  A special committe, comprising aldermen McKillop, Hall and Wilson,  was drafted to deal with the subject and report.  Acting government agent W. J.  Goepel, asked for a sidewalk to the  now registry office on Vernon  street, and the matter was referred  to the public works committee.  J. A. Gilker wrote asking the  -council to lower the sidewalk in  front of his store, ami the request  was refened to the city engineer  for action.  On motion of aldermen Hall and  Arthur, alderman Morrison was appointed to the board of the United  Charities Organization as a representative of the council.  On motion of aldermen Hall and  Arthur., it was unanimously resolved that the police commissioners should be requested to gives notice that all houses of ill repute be  moved from the east end of Baker  street by June 1st.  P. F. Wilson, city solicitor, advised the council in re by-law 01  that Lhey had no option other than  to grant licenses where applicants  tendered tho requisite fee, save in  the case of liquor licenses. By-law  jSo. 01 to regulate the licenses  "granted in the city was finally  passed on motion of aldermen  Arthur and McKillop.  LJifcy clerk Strachan was granted  60 days' leave of absence from  April 1st for the purpose of visiting the old country.  Mayor Houston informed the  council that he had received an  offer-from the government agent to  have the prisoners confined in the  provincial jail break stone at $1.00  per cord. lie thought the prisoners should have hard work of some  kind in order that the jail should  not become a centre for loafers who  wanted to get through the winter  easily, and considered stone-breaking the only occupation' iu which  the prisoners would not come into  competition with free,,labor. The  consensus of opinion seemed to be  that rough rock should "be quarried  by free labor and taken to ��� the jail  yard to be broken into fine metal  for roadmaking, aud tho clerk was  instructed to secure an offer in  writing from W. J. Goepel.  The mayor brought up the matter of measuring wood, and suggested that a system be adoptfed  whereby wood could be guaranteed  in quantity by a measurement  made by a'civic official similar to  that of measuring coal. On motion  of aldermen Hall and Arthur,  weighmaster Jackson was appointed  to measure wood and the city engineer was instructed to post him  on the method of.making the measurements. A foe of ten cents will  be charged, half of which goes to  the city. By this means the citizens can, by insisting on a certificate of measurement being produced, be absolutely certain that  The announcement that 1100 militiamen are to be raised for active  service at home and abroad has created much interest here. Lieutenant Beer received a telegram yesterday from major Benson, D. O. C,  asking if auy of the officers here  desired to take service at Halifax.  Among the freight shipments  arriving over the C. P. R. yesterday were a car of pulp aud a car of  glycerine for the Ontario Powder  Works. A car of asbestos for the  P. Burns Company also arrived.  This will be used for packing the  walls iu the new refrigerator  building.  During the month of February  the C. P. R. freight department received 0847 tons of freight'and forwarded 5594 tons. The increase on  the business during the same month  of 1899 is in round  figures $10,000.  The belts recently sent for the  use of the fire brigade will not be  returned, as was originally intended, but will be retained for  dress parade by the department.  Another lot of substantial quality,  such as is required for practical  work, will be ordered from a local  harnessmaker.  The ice at the rink yesterday was  pronounced by curlers to be the  best of the season. In the morning  two rinks met iu an interesting  match, which resulted as follows:  J. A. Kirkpatrick, H. D. Hume, J.  F. Weir aud W. W. Beer, skip, 0;  G. Steele, Dr. Arthur, Dr. Hall and  J. H. Wallace, skip, 9. Other  games were curled during the day.  The registry office was formally  turned over to the provincial government yesterday by the Nelson  Saw & Planing Mills, Limited, who  had the contract. The building  cost $12,000 iu round figures.  On the conclusion of his term as  house physician at the general hospital Di*. Rose will be identified  with Dr. Hall in the latter's practice.  Ensign Lester and captain Duthic,  who have been in charge of the  Salvation Army work in Nelson for  tho past ten weeks, have >been instructed to proceed to .Vancouver  and join _ the coips at that point.  The ladies have been quite" successful in the local work, and their departure is viewed by ' the local  members with - regret: The Tribune has been requested to convey  ���the thanks of the departing officers  to the citizens of'Nelson for the  many kindnesses received during  their brief stay in the city.

London, March 5.���In the course  of his speech introducing the budget, sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer,  referring  to his previously expressed opiuion  regarding   the    capacity    of  the  Transvaal   to   bear   a   responsible  share of tho expenditure   of the  war, said he still adhered  to that  opinion, but he was bound  to say  that the   events   of tho last five  months,   and   the    claims    which  would undoubtedly; he made by the  loyal colonists of NM_al for compensation for the losses sustained at  the  hands  of the," Boers and  the  enormous increase- in expenditure  since he last spoke,' had made him  feel that the capacity of tho Transvaal to bear the cost of the war  was a less important factor, though  it will be still moro an important  factor than he estimated in October  last.  ' From the abounding revenue of  the past year ��5,500,000 surplus  was available towards the war expenditures, bearing a remarkable  testimony to the industrial activity  and commercial prosperity of 1898,  wliich was, he hoped, one of a long  series of prosperous years. The  improvement. Avas dim to the style  and progress of business and not to  war, which had in some respects  The question of collecting the  road tax was discussed, was  resolved to make pounclkeeper McGregor collector. He will be instructed to confine his attention  for .the present to Chinese and  Italians, and the . police commissions s will be requested to make  McGregor apolice officer. He will  be paid 25 cents commission on each  assessment from these two sources  and 15 cents each for collecting  from permanent residents. The  additional commission was granted  in view of the difficulty of collecting from tho foreigners.  The council then adjourned until  Monday evening next.  S  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  R. R. Campbell of tho Revelstoke  Mail i.s in Nelson. Asked as to the  political situation there,'he said he  had been away a. week Or more over  in East Kootenay and was not posted, lie was somewhat surprised to  hear that the Conservatives had  nominated Charles Wilson, Q. C, of  Vancouver, for it was generally understood that J. I). Sibbald, who  was turned out of office by the Semlin government, had been selected  to make the contest.  Lee Coombs, of Steon & Co.,  wholesale merchants, Rossland, was  in Nelson yesterday. lie is in a  fairly good position to know the  causes that resulted in the laying  off of a part of the working forces  in tin ee of the mines there, and he  say* that tho only cause was inadequate machinery in each As  soon as the mines are equipped  ���with adequate machinery, which  ���will be within a reasonable timej  will vary  their program for Thursday night.  Instead of the regular drill they  will cross sticks at hockey with the  staff of the Hudson's Bay stores.

The second number of the Ferguson Eagle is to hand. It is  equally as good as the first. The  Eagle, so far, is the best paper in  the province, taking into consideration that Ferguson is a village of  probably a hundred inhabitants.  The William Hamilton Manufacturing Company of Peterborough,  Ontario, have decided to make Nelson district headquarters, and have  opened an office in the Madden  block with Harry Ilowson in charge  as district agent and T. J. Roadley  as chief clerk. The company is one  of the best in Canada, and all machinery manufactured is guaranteed to be the best, and everything  required in mining and milling is  turned out.  Another curling match took place  at ,the rink yesterday when the following players met last night: J.  Thompson, F. J. Bradley, T. Houston, B. Archibald, skip, 12; Dr.  Armstrong, P. E. Wilson, II.

Walley mot,  the game resulting in favor of W&l  lace's rink by one jioiut.  mitigated against trade.   The increase in foreign trade, both in imports and exports, was  more than  in previous years.   There had been  a remarkable,, increase in   the   receipts from the death duties, totalling ��17,441,000 of .which ��2,271,000  was from the estates of millionaires  including ��900,000 from the estate  of one man, a foreigner  who  lived  on fifteen shillings a day in a west  end London club.   That one person,  he continued, however, unwillingly  had contributed to  the exchequer,  more than the cost of an ironclad.  '(The  foreigner is the late George  Smith, pioneer banker of, Chicago,  who died October Uth, 1899, in his  rooms at the Refer;..* ClulvLondon.)  Explaining the proposed loan, sir  Michael   Hicks-Beach   said lie  believed it would be a mistake to try  to raise it by a now issue of eon-  sols, as it would create a permanent  debt which the nation could not  pay   off   at   par   until   192,'i.     Ife  thought it would be better  tha,t a,  part of the ��35,000,000 bo reserved,  say an amount not exceeding ��5,-  000,000, for a further issue.of treasury bonds.   Tho rest he proposed  to raise by bonds or stocks.   lie  had reason to believe it would be  possible to make such an issue on  very reasonable terms, and he hoped  to do so in a way not to insure profits for the fe-\y great and  wealthy  persons,  but   to bring   the whole  public into the  war loan, and enable them to be of some assistance  to the country.  The chancellor desired_a resohii.  tion passed enabling him to borrow  in the manner described without  fettering him _ as to the precise  terms of the issue. " He did not propose at present to'make any special  provision to pay off this loan. It  would be premature lo do so before  they knew the total liabilities, and  especially before they knew how  much could be expected from the  Transvaal.   Tic added:  "We have ample means to meet  what might fall on ourselves. Our  soldiers in the Held have shown  that they are equal to their forefathers and the great colonies have  eagerly taxed themselves with men  and money for tho empire. Should  those who are sitting at bomo>,.iow  themselves to be financial cowards,  we will leave tho matter in the  hands of the house, being assul'od  they will begrudge no effort and  shrink from no sacrifices which the  honor of the country and their  duty to the empire demand."  Sir Henry Campbell-Bainierman  said the opposition would give  every facility for the passage of the  necessary resolution, complimenting  sir Michael Hicks-Beach on tho  "straightforward, statesmanlikeand  discreet measures" proposed to deal  with the financial difficulties, and  said he thought the government  would be met iu no grudging spirit  in prosecuting its. financial propositions. Very pioperly a considerable proportion would fall on the  shoulders of the income tax payers.  Timothy Healy, Iri<-h Nationalist,  following sir Henry Campbell-Ban-  nerman, protested against Ireland  having to pay anything towards  the war expenses, asserting that  not a penny had been expended in j  I Ireland.    Germany,     the  States and Brazil! all had a share  except Ireland. The tax on whisky,  he further asserted, was an attempt  to bleed Ireland."  "Let the diamond stockbrokers,"  continued Mr. llealey, "those who  are making money out of the war,  pay tho cost. Let the colonies  share tho burden���Canada and Australia, who are so keen for war."  Sir William Vernon Harcourt,  Liberal, complimented tho chancellor of the exchequer on the soundness of his financial principles but  said the country would like to  know how the government intended  to insure that the Transvaal would  pay a large part of the cost of the  war.    He added :  "It is said we are fighting for liberty and freedom; that then there  is a prospect of millionaires like Mr.  Beit and Mr. Rhodes having the  legislation of the Transvaal at their  own disposal. Of course the government would not think of oppressing them by a centralized taxation  from England. While England is  being taxed for the war it would  be interesting to know how the  government intends to realize on  the vague, mystic expectations of  gentlemen who would put millions  into their pockets as a result of  the war. How are these men to be  made to pay? If it is going to be  free and independent legislation I  do not believe the Imperial government will get it. Before all these  burdens are imposed on the British  people, they should think surely of  getting control of the funds in  South Africa."  Tho house of commons adopted  the government's budget proposals.

The Political Situation.  Victoria, March 5.���An extra British Columbia Gazette tonight  contains the new government's first official act, this being an important notice affecting certificates of improvements of mineral  claims, the effect of which appears to be that work done iu excess of  statutory requirements in any year, may be counted in any subse*  quent year to keep the claim in good standing. In the words of the  order, "sections 5 and 30 shall be so interpreted as to permit a free  miner who has applied by affidavit for a certificate of improvements,  to receive and record a certificate or certificates of work for all or  any assessment work done by him or his predecessors in title since  the recording of the mineral claim, in excess of the value for which ��  he has already obtained a certificate or certificates of work." n  Joe Martin has returned to town with no new announcement to H  make, except s that he says that the lieutenant-governor has not jj  limited him to time, but charged him simply with forming a strong jj  government, which he feels sure he can do. He denies that his cam- ij  paign is to be on federal lines. a  The Colonist suggests that the past leaders of provincial parties B  have exhausted their claims upon the public, and that it is now in ij  order for the people to install in office a brand new set of men who a  will govern the province on business principles, without regard to 3  the interests of political parties. S  It is pretty well established that Mclnnes has been called down jj  by Laurier for undue interference and needlessly embarrassing the 3  Ottawa government, which is responsible for his actions. jj          M  'TTTTTTTTXIlIIXtr___fT___[__TTt��TTTTTTTTTTIITTTT__TTTTTTTTTTTTH^_!TTTTTTTTTTTTrTT1   ZZ CIXXXXl  ixxn.xxrxxnxTxr  General Buller's Path.  London, March 6.���Mr. Winston  Churchill desciibiug the relief of  Ladysmith in a dispatch published  by the Morning Post says: "It has  been effected at a cost of upwards  of 5000 officers and men iu an army  only 25,000 strong."  lie goes on to'pay a high 'tribute  to .sir Redvers Buller, emphasizing  the confidence his men had in him,  " withoutvwhichthe entei prise could  hardly have succeeded."  Of general Buller's attack on  February 27th, Mr. Churchill says:  "Considered in itself it was a  masterpiece, soundly conceived,  boldly launched and skillfully executed." He adds that "much also  wa.s due to the greatly - improved  intelligence department."  Mr. Churchill points out that the  Boers now hold Van Reenen's pass  but that a majority of the Free  Staters have accompanied the  Transvaalers northward.  London, March 0.���The Times  publishes tho following dispatch  from Ladysmith dated March 2nd :  "Until I had crossed the Tugela, I  did not realize the nature of the  ground, and the system of the Boer  rifle-enttendiments. How "these"  final positions were ever forced by  15,000 men seems marvellous. Jt  convinces me that the British infantry is unequalled* and that the  relief column accomplished an almost superhuman task. \-  A GLANCE AT YESTERDAY'S  News From tho Front.  London, March 0.���1 a. in.���Mafeking is to be relieved as soon as  the Biitish force already on the  way   to  Kimberley  can   raise  (he  siege.  This    force  is described  vaguely as ".strong." The Kimberley Light Horse i$ mentioned as a  component. In view of the fact  that the Kimberley Light Horse is  under tho control of tlio DoBecrs,  lord Robert'-' visit to Kimberley  may have had to do with an arrangement with Cecil Rhodes for  this company.  Mr. Rhodes and colonel Kekewich  havo had differences as to policy, it  appears, which did not end with  the relief of Kimberley. "What  shall 1 do with him?" colonel Kekewich is said to have wired to lord  Roberts, who half-humorously re-  piled, according to a story circulated at the clubo: " Put him in |  chain1-."  Frehh intelligence as to what lord  Roberts is. doing has ceased again.  Silence is taken to mean that something has happened or is about to  happen.  Boer raider^ are uncommonly active in the northwestern section of  Cape colony where thoy arc stirring  up   the   Dutch.   Martial   law has  United | consequently been declared.  Mr. Chamberlain's request for  2500 additional Australian bushmen  is understood to be explained by  the fact that the war office requires  this force for the pursuit of irreconcilable Boers who, according to  the intelligence department, have  been quietly collecting great quantities of ammunition and stores in  the mountain fastness of the Zeut-  pausberg district in the north of  the Transvaal, where they are preparing to carry on a guerilla warfare.    ANOTHER BIG REAL ESTATE  ���___.-���___________ '  Deal Put Through.  One of the most important real  estate deals of year was put through  yesterday, as a result of which the  city of Nelson will have another  magnificent business block. Within a couple of months ground will  be broken on the southwest corner  of Baker and Ward streets for  a business block on the lots  now occupied by Macdonald's confectionery store, Cliffe <fe Co/s bookstore, and Kirkpatrickv & Wilson's  grocery business.  The new block will be erected by  Kirkpatrick k Wilsou and A. H.  Clements. The thirty feet fronting  on Baker street at the corner of  "Ward has been purchased by the  syndicate for $10,500, the price  paid being probably the largest  ever paid for real estate in_tho city.  " ~~ TJie~tenants in the corner stores  leave the premises on the 18th instant. Mr. Macdonald has rented a  a store in the Madden block, and is  preparing to move at once. Kirkpatrick & Wilson have hot decided  where they will locate while building operations are in progress.  Mr. Kirkpatrick estimates that  the projected new building will cost  some $Ji5,000. Ib will be 00 by 120  feet and several stories in height.  It is understood that the C. P. Jt.  has made overtures with regard to  .securing a portion of the premises  for their uptown telegraph and  ticket offices.  BOERS ARE IN FULL RETREAT  From Northern Cape Colony.

Vancouver has been wrestling  with the problem as to the best  method of carrying on municipal  work, whether by contract or day  labor. At Friday evening's session,  the Trades and Labor Council decided to "strongly advocate the em-  " ployment of day labor ou prospec-  " tive municipal sewerage extension  " work." It may be noted that  this is another body of men who  differ from the Nelson Miner as to  the best method of carrying on  municipal work.  Premier Martin appears to be  warming things up for the provincial politicians.    The opinion of the  leaders of both political parties appears to be that Martin is endeavoring to precipitate  a division of  the forces upon federal party lines  and thus create a following for himself.   Not having any confidence in  ��� Martin the leaders of both parties  are endeaA-oiiug to defer, at least  for the present, the introduction of  federal lines.    That they will succeed  goes almost without saying.  Colonel   Gregory   of  the Victoria  Liberals has already issued a note  of warning to- the Liberals of the  capital against paying any attention   to   premier Martin's  call   to  arms. , The colonel questions Mar-  t tin's   Liberalism   and    denies   his  claim to the support of the Liberals"  of the province.   The Conservatives  , are also alive to'tlie danger of vesting    Martin " with   the  control ~ of  provincial affairs.   As a party the  Mainland wing is committed to the  introduction of party lines in the  approaching contest, but sir Charles  Hibbert Tupper,  recognizing  that  such a course would be but_playing  into Martin's hands, is now endeavoring ,to dissuade the Wilson Conservatives from adopting it, aud the  probabilities are that he will succeed.    It is a case where the political leaders will no doubt agree to  Kill off Martin in the first instance  and then   struggle  for  supremacy  among themselves.   The address of  sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, delivered before tho Vancouver Uonserva1  'lives on Saturday evening appears  in another column.  Martin could have reasonably expected a considerable labor vote.:  but when it crops out that Ludgate  is disposed to fight organized labor  in Seattle it is hot likely that either  he or his champions will receive  much consideration from organized  labor in Vancouver.

Tho Columbian of New  Westminster has issued a call for  an emergency convention of electors to be held iu New Westminster  on Friday. Tho Columbian's idea  is to form a peoples-party in the  seel ion covered by the Vancouver  ancl New Westminster districts,  which shall be strong enough to  constitute the balance of power in  the next legislature. It looks like  a scheme to'head off the introduction of federal party lines along the  lower Fraser.  The Tribune has not favored  party Hues in provincial politics,  for the reason that national political questions seldom ,,have more  to do with the management of the  business affairs of a province than  they have with the business affairs  of a municipality. The coming  election in this" province should be  fought on issues that are provincial, and the main issue is to elect  men who are not mere agents or  attorneys of this or that corporation or moneyed interest. Why  should the firm of R. Dunsmuir &  Sons be represented-iu the legislature by a dozen members ? Why  should the Canadian Pacific have  half a dozen of its retained attorneys on the floor of the house?  Elect as members of the legislature  men who are known" to have no  affiliation with the Dunsmuirs and  the Canadian- Pacific, and the  chances are that the province will  have good.government without its  members being required to ' declare  their opinions on either politics or  religion."   " Messenger Boy and Governor.  It ia stated that Joseph Martin  recognized the .likelihood of immediate trouble for tho lieutenant-governor on the occasion of prorogation, directly the vote of censure on  the premier designate was proposed.-    This occurred directly after  Mr. Prentice began to propose his  vote   of   censure.     This   must   be  stopped  at once,  said, to himself,  the third member for Vancouver.  So calling a page boy, he bade him  "go out and tell the lieutenant-governor from me that it will bo well  for him to come in at once."    Off  went the boy, and regardless, ladlike, of gubernatorial dignity, lushed  up to  his honor,  saying,  "Joe  Martiirsaj's you'd better"come in at"  once."      The    lieutenant-governor,  already    considerably    perturbed,  thought nothing of the unintended  lack of regard for his official dignity, and replied, "Alhright; tell him'  I'm coming."    Meanwhile, however,  the storm broke.  fOHN CHOLDITCII & CO.-Front street, Nel-  "    son, whole-'alo grocers.   PROVISIONS, PRODUCE AND FRUITS.

A letter received from Ottawa  tells something about Thomas, the  man of the Royal Canadians, who  was'killed in South Africa, ffe, it  appears, was on his way to Vancouver from England, and stayed off a  couple of days in Ottawa to take in  the sights. He called on the C.P.R.  ticket agent and made arrangements about having a berth on the  sleeper engaged for him for the following day. That.afternoon came  the call for men. Thomas cancelled  his berth ticket, and made arrangements with the company, that upon  his return his railroad ticket would  be still good to bring him to this  city. He was an Englishman and  intended to go to the Klondike.  Trench Skirmishing.

Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper addressed the .Conservatives of Vancouver on Saturday evening, when  lie urged them,  as strongly as he  could, to sink all party differences  and unite with all who would unite  with them to overthrow the Martiu-  Melnnes   syndicate.       Coming    as  they  do  when  the  air is'  full  of  speculation, sir Hibbert's views upon  the   situation   are   interesting.  Dealing   Avith   the   reasons  which  moved him to change his opinion,  as  to the  introduction  of federal  party lines  in  provincial politics,  sir Hibbert said :  ���It was an open secret that matters  political in British Columbia had  been in a chaotic condition for some  time past. The party system had  been and was, on principle, the only  reasonable ouo. The government  had been carried ou too much by  parties working forthoir individual  selves, and caring nothing for political principles. There was an opportunity given for ambitious and  bold men who had no principles to  fight for.  When Mr. Martin had fallen between the two stools, so to speak,  ho did not see the least possible  chance. There was no use beating  about the bush��� he and the lieutcn?  /nil-governor had seen au opportunity to snatch on their own individual caprice and tlieir own  whims, the.powei' of-control of  British Columbia, even though they  could not hope to hold^ it with, the  support of the majority of the electors. *  There  was,   conteuded   the  speaker, every opportunity for this  scheme to succeed, and at the same  time not be in accordance with the  will of the people of British Columbia. There would be tho uncertainty of a three-cornered fight, the  snatching of a verdict on account  of the division of the two stronger*  forces.  Then sir Hibbert went into a discussion of what had been done towards party lines, and how he had  all along worked with that end in  view.     But  anyone  would   admit  with  him, that all  the  efforts at  thorough organization of the party,  with the union of all the factions,  had not been altogether a success.  Everyone  knew  that, while there  had been a band true to absolute  Conservatism, there were scores of  men who had never submitted to  the decisions of the Liberal-Conservative. Union.     It   went., without  saying   that   the party., was , not  united in British Columbia today.  But the Liberals, who had seen the  reasonableness, of party lines, had  not been able to weld all the sections of their party.   There were all'  these factions in the field and the  consequent confusion gave a bold,  determined man an opportunity to  obtain power.    The party as divided would not draw many Liberals  into its ranks on the day of election,  and tliey could easily see the play,  of Mr. Martin in bringing as many  Liberals as possible into his cabinet.  The speaker thought that the crisis  was so great and the condition of  affairs so serious that it was just  one of the possibilities for political  gamesters to gain power.    His suggestion was this, and they should  take it for what it was worth���that  while they should not abate one jot  from the efforts to make the organization complete, aud to have the  Conservative  party stronger than  ever, and to impress on the people  the needs of organization and so on,  they should go into the provincial  fight ready to make common cause  with the various parties in the one  great, aim   to    oust   from   power  Messrs. Mclnues and Martin.  The   gauntlet had been  thrown  down by Mr.  Mclnnes,... the,, insult  that was dared to be offered to the  people  had been  resented, and  it  should be made absolutely impossible for him to continue .'.to. .occupy  the position that he at the .present  time disgraced:    Suppose Mr. Wilson, for instance, who was sitting  oh the platform was called .upon to  forma cabinet.   Did they suppose  that this would relieve the situa-.  tion,  for what stability  could bo  placed in the best of governments,  when people knew   that this man  was over them ?   If Mr. Wilson was  able to show the lieutenant-governor that he had two-thirds of tho  house at his back, he might, dismiss  him.   There was no use in trying  to deal with a man who was in the  habit of doing this sort of thing.  He had turned Mr. Turner out because he had not a .majority of the  house, and he had turned put Mr.  Semlin's government when, it had  an enormous   majority.   Stability  could never be obtained and as long  as this condition of affairs   were  maintained, they would, still be in  the same, chaotic condition of affairs.     They   could not  have the madcap played any. longer.  They should strike at: the. root of  this Avhole great.scandal, which was  at the: top. of the   whole, affair,  rather than perpetuate this.   They  should make common cause with,  the Liberals and others..whd. would  elect men to go to parliament to get-  rid of that kind   of'" government.  All -party, schemes paled:,into Jn-  significauce, in  tiielight  of this  supreme head to their, difficulties.  Ridicule and .con tempt were, heaped .on us���and rightly .so���by. .the  .otheri..!proYinces,_..qf the. Dominion,!  and it would be so as long as we  were so craven, as to stand in the  position we were now in. .' members elected might take the position  not to serve under the present lieutenant-governor, and to defeat the  man or party who took office under  him, and that would result probably in the dismissal of the lieutenant-governor.      If  men    were   so  wedded to their idols as not to come  to a compromise, then .they must  make the best fight that they could.  But he considered, in looking over  the field, that it was too great a  risk to run  the fight  on straight  party liues, when he thought of the  men who had a certain advantage,  "by   being   able  to. make   certain  moves on the boai-d ; and therefore  he thought they should fight with  Liberals, with followers of Mr. Garter-Cotton,   Mi'.' Semlin   aud   Mr.  Turner"; fight against any govern  ment or any man who would take  office under the present lieutenant-  governor.  REAL ESTATE AND  INSURANCE AGENTS  Agents for J. & J.

The propcity is very  promising, but the slump in stocks  generally prevented the company  from placing any of the treasury  stock when funds were needed.  The company controlled only one-  quarter of the property, the balance being under bond, and the  owner protected himself by placing  the legal notice at the mouth of  the tunnel.  C. D.
