Mr. Ross  said   that   the  northwest's requirements were   increasing  so   rapidly,  and the federal grant so slowly, that the  time  Avas  at   hand   when   the "-territory  must consider its financial position. They  could not enter con federation on the same  terms as had Manitoba, because.calculated  on such a basis they would be no better  off than tliey -wore  today,    if they, proceeded on tliat basis they  would have to  borrow in less than five years, and it was  not the policy of the government to borrow,  but to depend  purely   on   the  resources of the country. 'When the Northwest Territories entered confederation it  would want its kinds, and some  compensation for the lands that had been   given  to railways.    The Territories   he considered were entitled to an amount equal to  $1,000,000 a year on the capitalized values  of   lands  taken away   from   them.     In  making terms for entering confederation  the Territories 'would   insist upon  their  rights in this respect, and   that was   the  question   for   the assembly   to consider,  and for the 'people to discuss.

Ottawa, April 25.���The house went  into committee on supply today. Minister Fielding said in reply to Mr. Foster  that- tho government's policy about  statutory increase-this year was the same  as that of last yeaiynaniely : That civil  servants had neither a legal nor a mora/!  claim for statutory increases, but thatthe  question of increase was a matter of discretion on the part of the ministers.  Mr.'Foster made a demand for the laying on the table of tlie prohibition plebiscite poll books of the various constituencies in Quebec. During his address on.  the speech from the throne the minister  of agriculture dismissed the charges of  fraudulent plebiscite voting in Quebec,  by saying he had examined a statement  of the'frauds, prepared by W. H. Parent  for the Quebec alliance, and found that  not even the names of the returning  officers in Parent's list were correct. Mr.  Foster argued that Mr. Fisher should  produce the poll books Avith .which he  compared Parent's list.  The premier agreed that the minister  should produce the documents in his custody Avhen he quoted from them, but  pointed out that the documents from  Avhicli 31 r. Fisher quoted Avere not in the  control of the government, but in the  hands of the clerk of the croAvn in chancery, an officer of the house. Any member of the house had as much access to the  documents iu question as the minister of  agriculture had.  The speaker ruled ou the general question that the documents quoted from by  the minister should be produced as early  as possible, after such quotation. .However, he refused to give a decision as to  whether a clerk of the croAvn in chancery  could be ordered through any department to produce public documents in his  possession, or Avhether such documents  should be obtained by an order of the  house.  Mr. Ethier introduced a bill  today to  amend the criminal code for the purpose,  of limiting the number, of  personsj to "be  .admitted  at .hangings.    The  code  as it,  now stands.specifies certain  officials avIio1  are to be" admitted,  and  says, that such  others may  be  admitted  as the  sheriff  sees. fit.    Ethier "proposes that  the right  of   the   sheriff to  admit  other persons  should be AvithdraAvn,- and  a   provision  made for the admission  of  the officials  already provided for, and newspaper men.  In talking to his motion, Ethier  referred  to the  disgraceful  scenes at the Nulty  and Vi.au hangings at St. Scholastique.  The eA'ening soosion of the committee  of supply Avas devoted to departmental  salaries.' About $1,000,000 Avas A'oted  when the house adjourned at 10 p. m.

If au employee A*iolates it, he renders himself  liable to a fine not exceeding $1000 or six  months' imprisonment or both.  MONTREAL'S MAYOR IN TROUBLE  WANT   TO   DISQUALIFY   HIM.  Special to Tlio Tribune  Month ha I., April 25.���The  latest  sensation in civic affairs is the effort to   disqualify  mayor  Prefontaine.

THE   CITY'S   EXPENDITURES.  The people of Nelson are not taken  into the  confidence   of   the   present  city  council, inasmuch as they are not  given  detailed statements of -.the"receipts' and  expenditures of the city.

Hoxg Kong, April 25.���The British  authorities are not oA-er sanguine of a  peaceful occupation of the new British  district of Koav Loon, opposite Hong  Kong.

Clarence King, the geologist, is giving  his evidence in the famous Centre Star-  Iron Mask suit at Rossland. He is on the  Centre Star side of the case, and contends  that the ore bodies at Rossland are fissure  veins. The foIloAvi ng is an extract from  his testimony on Tuesday : "I should say  that all of the larger A'pins, at least, and  perhaps the smaller ones also, belong to  a single type. They* are, distinctly and  jn'edohiinautiy, fissure veins., it is Clear  that through su;ch a mass of rock as this,  chemical  solutions _coul'd._nM^.i:fciietri*ute.  without the avenue of cracks and interstices;- and, therefore, Avhereverany mineral foreign' to the roek itself may be  found it can be easily classed, either as  intrusive dike, or as,miueral matter Which  has come along fissures lioAvever large  arid in whatever directions. The mineral'  bearing veins here are Avell characterised  fissure A'eins : knd certainly sonic of the  larger ones, and perhaps- many of them,  are what are known as shear zone fissures.  That type is not perhitps so well  kiiown iind so Widely kno*J\*n as  the simple fissure, but it is  recognized and does exist Over a Very  wide range of territory. I have seen it  in Mexico, I am working a mine of that  type iiqav iu Colorado", I have seen it in  Nevada, and I know it when ! seen it  here. Shear-zone differs from the single  fissure in an important particular. While  a single fissure may result from a vertical  action, or even be the resultant of two  horizontal compressions^ through compressing forces, the .sf)oa.r-Kon.e..is always  made under very higli'coiiipi-es'sibn���compression which holds the rock tightly  together, Avhieh prevents a Wide opening  of fissures, iind that shear-zone is always  the result, or almost always the result of  a disturbance of opposing couples, of  Avhat are technically called "couples"  of pressure���the disturbance of that  couple by a vertical complement  or a A'ertica! force; while the  plain, open fissure may result from a  direct upAvard thrust, the shear-zone is  ill ways the result of a A'ery pOAverful  compression ; and since that compression  is A'ery great, and almost equals the distributing force, Avliatever it is, that produces the fissure, it, is apt to break, and  ahvays does practically break in more or  less parallel seams or fissures ;.that milking a family whose exterior  boundary is  ahvays assignable, if you crosscut, or  find the surface avoII exposed, and study  the ground. Instead of being an indefinite amount of parallel fissures, extending  into a conn try an undiscoA'orable distance,  it is always "a- discoverable and lintitable  collection or family of more or less parallel fissures. Since these forces are never  mathematically adjusted to each other to  be in exact opposition, the resulting fractures are not absolutely parallel."  YMIR   LOCAL   AND   MINING   NEWS.

It'was rumored about the streets yesterday that the representatives of the  company AVhich proposes putting in the  tramway in Nelson had inade considerable purchases of realty in HogtistoAVii.  The purchases of business.property made  this AVeok are also said to have been  made in the interests of tlie same people,  so that it would appear that the company contemplates making up on real  estate advances and rentals what it expects to lose in the operation of the  tramway for the first feAV years.  Justice Martin's Bon Mot.  Lord Beaconsfiold once said that Mr.  Gladstone was "an egotistical rhetorician  inebriated Avith the exuberance of his  own verbosity." Lately Mr. justice Martin immortalized "the minerals (other  than coal) act," by stilting that he "took  the view that speedy finality of litigation  and a quietude of title with all celerity  are the dominant policy of the mineral  act."  The Trihune Avas informed yesterday  on what may considered as good authority that there is an excellent prospect of  Avork being started this summer upon the  Kootenay Lake section of the Crow's Nest  raihvay. It was generally understood a^>  fe.w months ago that no start would be  made upon tho Avork this summer, but  something has evidently cropped up to  place the building of the lake section  again before the railway management for  consideration, iind it is now said to be a.  wise of touch find go Avhether the work  shall not be commenced fit once.

The optioii and"'  bond run till October 1st, 1900.  The Bosun is preparing a   shipment of  tAventy tons of its zinc ore to be sent to  London, England.    The ore Avill "go for- .  Avard in a feAV days.  Development is proving that there' are  a number of prospects surrounding Noav  Dein'er" that bid fair to enter the list of '  permanent shippers. The'latest of these  is the Turriss "group, situated on Goat  niouutain. WorkAvas commenced on the  property a Aveek ago, and a crosscut now  being run has uncovered an eight-foot  ledge with well defined walls./ A pay-  streak-of five inches 1ms made its appearance, alongside a seam of talc, and it contains ore of exceedingly high, grade.. It  carries ruby silver, gray copper and. ar- .  gentife, assaying over'4000, ounces, "It is  si. dry ore and requires but little sorting. ,  Several sacks Avere put- up on Saturday  an 1 a small tost shipment., will be made.  The owners Avill sink on theore to,test its  permanency.  The owners of the Hewitt state the  rumor of it deal being on for'that claim  is somewhat premature. + ,  The owners of  tho  Mollie  Hughes are  busily   engaged   sorting  the dumps   on  their property and sacking the ore. They-  are making good Avages;  A carload of ore has been shipped from-  tho Noonday, the coining bonanza of the  Galena Farm, and a second shipment is  being sacked.   The-iunoiint-of��� gratuitous���advertising   the Enterprise mine is receiving from  the press is having a big influence  upon the well-being of Ten - mile  Creek. Enquiries^ after 1'ikfsif prospects  arc coining in froni outside points, and -'  several agents of capital Jia-vq been in  this week sizing \ip tlio situation. Teh  Mile prospects are almost entirely in the  hands of their ot-igiuiil oAvirers, the hUi>dy"  ���prospectors. Tlie ci/ijok has the host Cbjn-  uiuica(ion in the cuinp, by reason of the  Fhterpi'ise VvagOu roiSd and gQ^rririlcnt  trails over to Spi'iligei* creek, the Soiith  fork, north fork, a-iuf Ivoknnee and Sotith  Kaslo creeks.  Negotiations are wider way for the  sale of several good claims on LemoiJ  creek. A leading mining liiiin recently  touring through the Slocan predicts tliat  Lemon, creek will, be one of the best camps  in British Columbia. The gold A'ahie of  its prospects -are much higher oh the  average than any of the southwestern  camps, besides haAriug,,gqod. percentages  of silver. The Golden Wtdgcs the Chapleau, Black I'rince, Crusader, CamerOnian,  and other properties arc proving the  richness of that A'irgiil district.' Nelson  should keeps its eye on that section, for  the future has much in store for Lemon  creek. .   Both Blast   Furnaces Running.  There is an unwonted amount of activity around the Hall Mines  smelter  this  Aveek.     Several   days  ago  the long  expected   run  upon   galena  ores was commenced in the 100-ton blast furnace, the  company using a mixture of Silver  King  ores Avith the purchased ores, and on Saturday the 250-ton furnace was bloAvn iu  on high-grade copper ore from the King.  With both blast furnaces running, the  company  Avill  make  a  great record for  the ensuing month. THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B. C, -WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2C,  1899.  Special Dress Goods Saie!

By these amending  acts the legislature decided to give the  mining recorders the same powers with  respect to mineral claims within their  districts as were exercised by the gold  commissioners. Whether the amendment was good or bad it represented the  views of the legislature, but it has  pleased the executive council to override  the enactment of the legislature. Jt is  presumed that this course Avas decided  upon for the reason that the amendment  Avas so carelessly drawn that it permitted  two men to exercise the same power in  the same division. r  "HUDSON'S BAY7  W  'S  HATS  m  B  MEN'S       fa  CHILDREN'S  v^  AND LADIES'  ��  BOOTS JJ  AND SHOES   B  HAVE JUST RECEIVED THEIR SPRING IMPORTATION OF  Portieres and Lace Curtains  �� White Muslin Curtains with frilled edge; Aplique Curtains in cream |  || and white, which for richness and durability cannot be equalled; Not-f  jg tingham Lace Curtains in pretty designs and colorings of ecru and ��  g white; Colored Coin Spot Muslins for door, sash and window curtains; J  ^ White Coin Spot Muslins in all sizes of spots.

When S.'inianfcha sends you down cellar
after a burglar, do not go with a lamp in
one liand and a. revolver in tlie other.
Of eour.se, it is nob likely tliat there is
any burglar at all; but if there should be,
he has every advantage, being on the
alert and knowing .just where to expect
you, while you are fuddled -with sleep
and do not know just where he may be.
To carry a light is simply suicidal, for a
man in pitch darkness can aim as aceur-
etely at a light as he can at a bullseye in
the daytime.   .
A revolver is the most difficult of all
firearms to master, and unless you have
fired thousands of shots0Avith one at targets, till you have learned Iioav to shoot
straight, you had better rely upon a club.
The best weapon for house defence is. a
short-barrelled .cylinder bore repeating
shotgun (commonly called ."riot gun").
With a, charge, of buckshot you are much
more likely to hit an object in the dark
than with a single bullet, and it gives a
paralyzing, knock-down blow/whereas a
pistol bullet seldom puts a man, out of
..-aet'oVi before he can strike back. Fill
the magazine with shells loaded with
buckshot, but leave the chamber of the
gun empty. Then it is safe to keep
about the house, for if a child or ignorant ■person gets  hold of it.lie cannot dis-
.    charge'., the piece   by  snapping   it,   but

ly tluit gi*eat friction is generated, tending to hold the  projectile back.    The result of these two force's is that the lead
core is likely to be driven  through  the
thimble, leaving the latter sticking in the
bore  of the  gun, and   if another  shot is
then    lired   the   rille is   likely to   burst.
This   would   scarcely  be   the  case   with
black   gunpowder, wliich  exerts a  fairly
uniform   pressure,  and   would   probably
only  drive out the   thimble, ringing but
not bursting the barrel.    But smokeless
powder  is, as 1 have  said, largely  composed   of   nitroglycerine.     It will  burn
quietly in the  open air, and will explode
moderately when subjected to i-esisonable
pressure, but when it meets sudden and
firm resistance it detonates with terriflie
violence.    The  effect of  bursting  a gun
barrel with smokeless powder is far more
disastrous than   tliat of bursting it with
an overcharge of black powder, the mere
report   being sufficient  to crack a man's
ear drums  and   make   him   permanently
deal',  even though,   by marvellous  good
luck, he escapes instant death.
THE   EARNINGS   OF  A   MINT.
^h\iply/;pu:h.ipi'ng"
It is supposed generally that the United States Mint and the government assay c Alices and refineries are maintained
for the public convenience and that the
mint, like other branches or departments
of the extensive Treasury service, is run
pro bono publico, tlie government making up by appropriations the shortage of
each year.    The recent public  report of
: the director of the mint shows that
Uncle Sam has a thrifty .'interest in the:
operations of the mint and its branches
and makes a tidy profit from their oiaera-
tion each year. Last year the gross earnings of the mints and assay offices of tlie
country—there are mints in Philadelphia,'
San 'Francisco, .Carson City and New Orleans, assay offices at Denver, Boise,
Helena, Charlotte, St. Louis, 'Deadwood
and New York—"were.,$4,495,000,' of which
'$173,014  was/Vf'oK parting- and ^refining,-

"sweeps" removed was $8720 : the valuy
of the surplus bullion returned was $53,-
024, and the gain on bullion shipped by
the minor assay offices to the mint for
coinage there was $0075.
The expenditures of the mint service,
including wastage, loss on sale of sweeps,
and expense of distributing minor coins,
was $1,203,188. The net earnings for the
year were $3,432,0(51. Some of the items
of expense (tlie chief of Avhieh is, of
course, salaries and Avages) illustrate the
curiously complicated Avork of minting,
Avhicli requires not only knowledge of
chemistry and metallurgy, but considerable exactness in the use of materials
and in the adaptation of dies and designs.
For acids used in the mints and assay
offices $27,400 was expended by the government last year; for chemicals, $4700 ;
for wood, $0075: for copper, $9000; for
firebrick, $1800, and for zinc, $2700. For
gloves and gauntlets required by the
mint Avorkers, $8100 was needed: for gas,
an aid to metallurgy, $11,7.00; for charcoal, $8700; for oil, $1100; for hardware,
$1400, and for crucibles and mechanical
appliances, $5400.
Varied as these items are, they do not
exhaust  the number of things  required
in the mint,   for $200 Avas expended in
lumber, $1400 in ice, $500 for salt used in
the refineries, and a small charge for flags
needed as designs.    Apart from gas, the
fuel  needed for   mint and   assay   offices
was  of-three, .kinds'—charcoal  at an expense   of $3700,   coke at   an expense   of
$7500, ond coal at an expense of $17,000.
One item, Avhieh to the uninitiated seems
large, is the item of sewing, $3425.    This
sewing is required for the bags containing   tlie metal   or coins,   in addition   to
$503 for barrels and $350 for bullion boxes.
Uncle  Sam in  his  liberality  made no
appropriation for soap,  it would appear,
but the expense of laundering the towels
(presumably   "ib  Avas   given  out")   Avas
$3000, and $2200 additional Avas paid for
Avater.    The item  of Avastage,  so-called,
arising from Avork at the mint, and Avhieh
is not a large  one Avheu  compared Avith
the enormous operations of the mint, was
$10,000,   and   some   other   minor  items
brought up  the government's  Avhole expense in the year   to $1,250,000, or about
25 per cent of  the total  receipts,   the
profit being  represented by the other 75
per cent.

Brutes Not Deceived by Illusiins.
"It's a singular fact," said a man in the
sIioav business, "that 'illusions,' as Ave call
'em, don't fool  animals.    IVe  seen that
proven over and o\rer again. A few
years ago 1 had Avhat is known as the
'Mystic Maze' at the Toronto Exposition. It Avas simply a small room filled
Avith mirrors, so arranged that you seemed to be in a narroAV corridor, full of
turns. It was very puzzling, and I used
to get lost in the. place'myself, but it
never bothered my dog a moment. He
would run through it from end to end at
full speed and never bump against a
mirror.
"I saAV something on the same line in
'Frisco not long ago. A friend of mine
had an illusion called 'The Haunted
Swing.' You get in Avhat seems to be au
ordinary swing, hung in the centre of a
good-sized room, and the thing begins to
move. It goes back and forth and finally
clear over the top—that is to say, it
seems to. What really turns around is
the room itself — the swing stands perfectly still. It is a good illusion, and
when the room is revolved rapidly there
never Avas a man avIio could keep his
head in the swing, it seems as if he
must certainly pitch out, and if the motion is kept up he gets deathly sick. But
a pet cat belonging to my friend used to
lie on the edge of the seat and never turn
a hair, no matter how fast the thing avjis'
Avorked.
"The elder Herrmann told me that animals Avere neyer deceiAred by false table
legs, built up Avith looking glasses*, and .
used in stage tricks. They ahvays passed around on the other side. I guess they
must see better, somehow than men."
