 -v,  "I  WORKING IN THE BELIEF THAT A  GENERAL   ELECTION   IS   NEAR.  Special to The Tribune.  Ottawa, April 12.���Tlie prospect now  is tliat the debate on the address will not  be concluded before the end of next week.  Ii.very opposition member it seems is to  speak, as the impression prevails among  tlie Conservatives that the 'general election will be liehl before another.session is  called. The members are therefore anxious to talk to their constituents. No  doubt the proposal to puss a redistribution bill induces the Conservatives to  think the general election will be held.  As to the redistribution bill, the object  of the government is to make it so fair  that no reasonable man can object. The  idea is to provide a fair basis upon which  any redistribution may subsequently be  made.  SILLY   CHARGES   IGNORED  By Premier Laurier.  Special to Tho Tribune.  Ottawa, April 12.���At the opening of  the house today sir Charles Tupper.. congratulated the premier on the announce-,  incut that the government proposed to  take up tlie Pacific cable scheme and  carry it 'through to a successful conclusion.  He said he was satisfied that the cable  would not be an encumbrance to the  country, but would soon 'prove a source  of revenue.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier expressed his gratitude to sir Charles for his remarks and  said he hoped that the leader of the opposition would act iu the future as he did  in this case, when the government brought  down equally good proposals.  Mr. lYIcDougall (Cape Breton) resumed  the time-Avorn address debate. He first  endeavored to show that the preferential  tariff was a fraud and that the general tariff was pro-American, quoting a. long list of articles  on which there had been substantial reductions and of which Ave buy almost exclusively from the United States. Mr.  McDougall quoted from several speeches  which the premier had made when in  opposition, in which various reforms  were advocated, and he asked why none  of them were mentioned in the speech  from the throne. Healing witli'the Manitoba school question, Mr. McDougall denied that the question was settled. The  Liberals had got into power upon promises of a settlement, and he held that  they should fulfil their promises of settlement. He said he was informed that in  order to secure grace in connection with  the settlement that the premier had .sent  hush money to the people of Manitoba.,  He challenged the premier to answer  this'allegation, but sir Wilfrid paid no  attention to him.  ��� -McLennan of'Glengarry -.made- a long,  ���-speech. , He touched oii the -Yukon  charges and read a letter from a Glfcn-  garry man, a Liberal,-he said, who found  fault with.commissioner Ogilvie for not  suspending all the officials as soon as he  arrived.  Fisher moved the  adjournment of the  debate, and the house adjourned al I 1.55.  The Pacific Cable.  Special to The Tribune.  Ottawa. April 12.���Negotiations in the  matter of the Pacific cable, "which have  never beeu wholly discontinued, are now  likely to bring about an arrangement a.s  to the proportionate cost, in which Canada's share would be the same as that  borne by Great Britain, five-eighteenths,  the Australian colonies between them  subscribing four-ninths. The papers aud  correspondence in connection With the  Subject will be laid before the Iinperiftl  and "Canadian parliament-, concurrently,  so tluit the public will be placed in the  =poSses;sj oiro^  tion  of the   blue   books  will  not mean  0/<U iJJin  i y���*���*��������  ENTERPRISE   MINE   REPORTED  SOLD   FOR   SIX   FIGURES.

DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;   WEEKLY, $2.  that the Dunsmuir conferences with the  government resulted in a friendly decision to arbitrate on the amount payable  under tin; lease.  THE  MINERS   WILL   INSIST  On Enforcement.  Spcoial to The Tribune.  Rossi.A.vi), April 12.���.James Wilkes,  vice-president of the National Congress  of Labor, in an interview today said that  there was but one opinion among the  members of the organized miners of the  province with respect to the enforcement  of the eight-hour amendment. The position taken by the organized miners is  that the legislature of the province has.  enacted that eight hours shall constitute  a day's work for men employed underground,, and they propose to hold the  ministers entrusted to carry out the laws  of the province to their whole duty, and  to the enforcement of the eight-hour  amendment. Should they fail to do so  they will be held strictly to account when  the legislature re-assembles, and as the  respective parties are rather evenly  divided, tlie labor representatives iu the  house will hold the balance of .power.  With respect to the stay of proceedings which the mine-owners' delegates  claim to have secured for six weeks, iu  which to present their case, IMr. Wilkes  does not attach much importance to it.  The labor organization is prepared to  join issue with the government should it  refuse to enforce the law, and it does not  consider that the miners are fairly  treated Avhen they are required to petition in favor of the enforcement of a  measure which it is well known the employers are opposing.  -Both at Rossland and at Ymir the mining companies have adopted the eight-  hour system and there lias been no decrease in the rate of wages, and it is but  a question of time until the eight-hour  system will become general throughout  Kootenay. Not only does .Mr. AVilkes  believe that the government will enforce  the law. but he further believes that any  attempt at repealing the measure upon  the reassembling of the legislature will  end in failure.

Victoria,- April ,1.2.���The Times tonight published a story frain QttaAva to  the effect that the Esquimalt & Nanaimo  railway lease for right of way through  the Songhees reserve had been cancelled,  and that tlie company would be sued for  a considerable amount due under it. As  Mr. Duusmuir was premier Laurier's  guest a few nights ago, this .apparently/  hostile move excited no. little surprise,  but another despatch from Ottawa says  tliat there is no truth in  the report, but  Newspaper Men Escaped,-  - ,' - Special to the Tribune.  Monthi_ai.. April 12.--CroAvn prosecu-'  cutor Cook today moved to commit the  proprietors of-tho- TJeraid, .Patrie,- and  Miners'e, journals for commenting on the  recent libel'triarwbilo the case was sub-  judice. -Counsel appeared for the papers  and expressed regret if anything had  been published that would be contempt  of court. Judge Wurtle said he took it  that the motion was intended" only as a  warning. It was 'improper that any  comments should.appear during the hearing of the case, but when it was finished  bhe newspapers may make Tiny comment  they saw fit about the conduct of the  judge, jurors or witnesses, so long as it  was not done through hatred or ill will,  but in the. public interest. In fact he considered proper comments should be made  as it was a great protection and obliged  the officials to keep Avithin the law by'  reminding them they may be called to  account. Under the circumstances he  thought it his duty to accept- the;.expressions of regret and promises to abstain" in  future. The "motion was therefore dismissed.   Special to The Tribune.  Ottawa, April 12.���Pierre St. Dennis,  of Montreal, has presented two petitions  to the house of commons concerning the  grievances of the laborers employed in  construction work on the Crow's Nest  Pass raihvay. One petition is signed by  300 of the dissatisfied men from Hull and  requests the government's intervention  to secure for them full pay while in the  employ of the Canadian Pacific Raihvay  Company. One man claims they were  charged full fare on the trip to and from  the Pass, and also that they had other  inoneys kept out of their wages, contrary  to the terms of the agreement made  when the railway company's agents were  engaging in Montreal for men to work.  Many of the men were dissatisfied with  the treatment they received and left before the time they had engaged for had  expired. ,    -.  -  Molineux Indictment Discharged.  Associated Press.  New York,.April 12,���Justice Pardon  C. Williams tonight handed down his decision on the motion made to discharge  the indictment against Roland B. Molineux, charged with sending poison to  Harry Cornish'which caused the death of  Mrs. -Williams. Justice Williams dismissed the indictment on the ground  that other than legal evidence was received and considered by the grand jury,  and directed that the case be re-submitted to the grand jury now sitting, or to  the next grand jury that shall sit in  New York.  Cars Made in Buffalo.  Associated Press.  Buffalo, April 12.���The Wagner Car  Company at East Buffalo, today turned  out eight sleeper cars for the Intercolonial raihvay, being the first consignment  of an order of sixteen cars, received from  the Canadian government. They are  the handsomest sleepers ever built at the  Wagner shops, and will eclipse*any pas-'  senger cars in style and furnishings used  in the,Dominion. The cars were sent to  Montreal, where they will be placed in.  service by the Intercolonial _rond.   -  '. - Evicted -Tenants Lost.    v  Associated Press.  London, April J2.���The house of_ commons today, by a vote of 107 to 09, rejected the bill" introduced by William  0'3_alloy, anti-Parncllite member for a  division of Galway, providing for the  compulsory reinstatement of the Irish  tenants evicted since 1879. Gerald Balfour, chief secretary for Ireland, denounced the bill as being bad in principle and mischievous in practice,  Vancouver, April  12.���At a meeting  of the   Vancouver Board  of Trade  last  evening   the   resolution   passed  by  the  Grand Forks  Board   of Trade   was   read  and "discussed. A resolution'on somewhat  similar lines was introduced.    To this an  amendment   referring  the  matter  to a  committee for future' report was offered  and adopted.    Those favoring  the  resolution argued the necessity for competing  railways.     Some  of the  speakers called  attention to the threats .'of .boycott that  had been received from Grand Forks, and  thought that the position of this board  should be neutral.    George McL. Brown,  the    executhre    agent    of    the     Canadian       Pacific      railway,;     on      being  called   on,    said    that    he    had     not  intended to exercise his privilege to speak  and would prefer not to do so.    He quite  appreciated.* that a number of people; sympathized  with the   local  cry for more  railways, but in respect to the Boundary  Creek country this, was not necessary for  the purposes of competition, in view of  government control of rates.    If .the.Vj.o-  liey now accepted throughout Canada, of  "Canada* for  the  Canadians," was to be  effective,   then   Canadians .-must  strive  against -American-  encroachments.    The  Canadian "Pacific.opposition, to the  charter Avas not with a -view*; to  stifling com- j  petition.   Such could not be, as the'govr  eminent had  power to    regulate  tolls.

The result lias been  tli.it all arej'ccoveri-ig. The convalescents  are resting in the jail as there are no  prisoners at Glenoid.. The prompt action  of the government is in striking contrast  with the condition of aff-iirs in tlie Copper  River country, wheVo many have perished  for want of help, while attempts made to  induce Washington authorities to take  action resulted in nothing.

Associated I'ress.  \i_\v Oi.i-EAN.s,vApril 12.���Charles Dudley Warner, the Avell known author and  editor, is critically ill hero with la grippe.  Two AA-eeks ago The Tribune state.,  that  the.  London  and British Columbia  Goldfields  people  were   negotiating  for  "the  purchase of the Enterprise mine on  Ten-mile creek, Slocan  lake  district, and  that the deal might be closed.   A brief  history and  an   extended  description of  the   mine   Avere   also published.    These  articles have been garbled and  reprinted  in a dozen different papers, and iioav* it is  heralded   broadcast   that  the mine  has  been  sold for $750,000, the London aiid  British    Columbia   Goldfields,    Limited,  being   the   purchaser.        The  figure at  which   the  deal   Avas  closed is not given  Out  by  the  people  who made the deal,  and any figures  are'mere .'guesses.    The  sum to be paid for the Enterprise  is not  far from $350,000, as the property is not  considered  a "big"one  by the  experts  who have examined it.    It is not unlikely  thatthe  purchase of  the Enterprise by  the London and British Columbia  Gold-  fields crowd Avill result in the starting up  of the smelter at Pilot Bay.    That smelter has a lead furnace of 100  tons capacity.    Tho L. <fc B.

The Pilot Bay smelter is accessible  to all  four of these mines.   The first tAvo would  ship A*i.i the Kaslo <fe Slocan raihvay ; the  Enterprise A'ia the Slocan branch of the"  Canadian Pacific; and the Ymir A'ia the  Nelson   & Fort Sheppard raihvay.

The first one *vvill be: What  right had the mayor to make an entry  in the minute book, without the approval of the council. The second Avill be: *  Shall the A'eto of the mayor be sustained.  It is believed, in Avcll-infornied circles,  that the mayor cannot muster four A'btes,  The Merchants Bank croAvd, inside and  outside, supported Neelands to a man at  the last election, and they will have their  rcAvard, or there Avill be trouble in the  camp.        ..

Along Avith this comes a report  that premier Laurier is tired  of politics  and   will   become   chief   justice.

Tiir Economist is strongly in favor of  the city borrowing $00^000 for publib ihi-  proveinents. it says that a policy of ill-  advised economy might bhist tliC futhre  of Nelson.

There is  no -law to compel anyone to use electric light, and if the capacity of the present plant  is  not  sufficiently large to supply all who might use  electric light, is it not better to supply  those that can  be supplied  than to expend thousands of dollars on alterations  in the plant that Will in no way be of  permanent   benefit.    Tlie present  plant  has a greater capacity than that  of any  other town of Nelson's size in  Canada;  bivb, the  trouble in  Nelson  is, that  the  plant is. not made to earn up to its  capacity.    Fully  25  per cent of the earning  capacity of the plant is given away.   Let  the council remedy tliat,-and-there will  be  no necessity of borrowing $15,000, or  any part of it.    The same is true of both  In speaking of one of the changes  made in the ofiice of the mining recorder  at Nelson, the Economist says that it was  not unnatural for the niining recorder  (Mr. Tolmie) to look upon the usurpers  with contempt, because lie "was in a position to "realize the incapacity and crass  ignorance of the present'outfit.-, .What a  very,superior person Mr. Tolniie-niust.be,  to be sure ;'but if he has the good sense  that is claimed for him,' he Avill choke  the Economist editor until he promises to  .confine his editorial utterances to abuse  of "Joe" alartin.

'...Mr. Justice Martin Torwjtriled judgment
in this, action to the registrar 'at Nelson,
who received tlie -same yesterday.'
The facts are that the plaintiff sued for
if>7,5()0 commission for effecting the sale
of the Beatrice group in the Lardeau
to Messrs. Beers ■Brothers at $150,000.■
lb appeared by the evidence that on the
2d day of July the plaintiff- prepared, an
agreement betAveen himself and the defendants agreeing to negotiate ■." a sale "
of tlie abo\e-nanied group, and as a re-
niuneration for his services in that particular he Avas to receive five percent
commission on the purchase price, to be
•■'•paid .out'of the purchase money as the
same was paid by the purchaser. McCulloch secured a bond from George F.
Beer on the 4th day oi July last for
$150,000, upon -which'-the first payment
A\*as to be made on the 1st day of'September last, but Avhen that time arrived
the bond was not taken up anil avus al-
loAved to lapse; a new sale Avas effected
by the defendants to George F. Beer and
his brother, \V. W. Beer, for the original
Beatrice group and an additional three-

mentand writing prescriptions. He had
eaten his supper at 11 o'clock, made a last
call on a man Avith the grip, and had
turned into bed, dog tired.
ItAvaslong after midnight when the
telephone bell rang. The doctor Avas
sunk in a deep sleep. Again the bell
rang out sharply and impatiently and
continued to ring, but the doctor did not
hear it. At the other end of the hall a
pale student pored over his book. He
was studying law. The bell disturbed
him, and he at length decided to answer
it and stop tlie ringing. He took down
the receiver and shouted "Hello !"
"Is that you doctor?" asked an anxious
voice.
"Yes, what do you want?" replied the
student, /who knew, the''doctor Avas tired
and did not A\ish to wake him unless the
case was serious.
' "This is Potts, doctor, H. J. Potts. My
wife wanted me. to call you up to tell you
that the baby wouldn't play with his
blocks tonight and seemed kind of heavy
and dull, What do you suppose is the
matter, doctor? My Avife is'very uneasy.
"Hum," said the student, trying to
think of something to say. "Is the baby
feverish?"    .■■'••
"No, 1 don't think he is," replied the
voice.    "But he sneezed once tonight."
"Ah," said the bogus doctor, "that's a
good sign. If he sneezes and is not feverish he is all right. You might give him
a  little water if he wakes up and cries ;

if he gets too AA'arm take some of the
covers off."
"All right, doctor. Much obliged.
Sorry to have had to disturb you, but my
AA'ife "wouldn't go to sleep until I called
you up.    Good night."
"Ah," thought the pale student, "that
is $2 for the doctor. Wish 1 could earn
it as easily."
When he told the doctor about his deception the next day he was thanked,
and Mr. Pott's bill was swelled by $2.
one-half of which Avent to the pale
student.
"It's their first baby," explained the
doctor, "and they're tickled <to death to
pay any price for it. I couldn't have
given Potts any better advice myself.

The learned judge gives oidy uu extract

jTidginent a«'given to date is as follows:
"In this .natter I ha\"e conic to the conclusion that judgiHent must be given for
the defendants, principally on the short
ground raised by the defendant's first
objectioiij tliat the plaintifl' has not hJiOavm
that he effeCte.1 a. 'sale/ as ineutibiied in

sale,' or ca'cu approached near enough
thereto for me to be justified in finding
that the plaintiff 'substantially found a
purchaser,' so as to bring the case Avithin
Kimer vs linoAvles (1874) 80 L.T.N.S., 400,
Avhere a leasefor nine hundred and ninety-
nine'years A\-as considered as satisfying
that requirement. The plaintiff's case is
a much weaker- one than that, particularly in view of the last clause of the agreement of the 4th day of July, 1808, the
effect of AA'hich is, that the agreement
'did not bind' (the so called purchaser) 'to
anything' Avhieh it must do as mentioned
by Mr. justice Osier in Culvei-Avell vs
Birney (1887) 14 App. Rpts.' 278 ; see also
the requirements of a sale as set out in
McKenzie vs Champion (1884) 12 S.C. 055
