Both motions were made without opposition, and the rival companies are now  free to continue the construction of their  respective lines.   Dundee Pays for His Interest.

Ottawa, June 8.���The appearance of  the house of commons this morning recalled the days Avhen the franchise bill  was under discussion in 1885, or still litter  Avhen the late government tried to force  through the remedial bill during its dying days. On both of these occasions the  opposition Avere fighting tAvo important  questions which were known to be at  variance with good goA'ernment and the  popular will. ��� The .Franchise Act of 1S85,  notwithstanding that it was greatly improved by that long sitting, has since  been repealed.. The remedial bill Avas a  death Woav to those avIio introduced it.  The all night's sitting on'this occasion is  a very different one. It took place in  ostensibly discussing a legal instrument  Avhicli contains nearly a hundred clauses  governing the leasing bf that portion of  the Grand Trunk railway to give the  Drummond County road an entrance to  Montreal. It has been several days under  discussion aud debate. No objection has  been taken to the principle of the proposition nor has the cost been seriously  attacked. No attempt is made to  disguise the fact that the opposition  in pursuing the policy of obstruction,  imagining that in this Avay the govern-  meut will uot go on Avi th. the redistribution bill.  When the discussion AA'as started on  the third clause of the agreement last  night there had been a Avhole day's discussion previously giA'en to it. At tAvo  o'clock this morning an all-night session  Avas imminent. Messrs. Blair, Fielding,  Sifton and Mulock remained all night.  Clarke Wallace did the heavy Avork for  the opposition.

Washingto-**; June 8.���Negotiations  for reciprocity AA'ith British Gtiiana have  proceeded so briskly that a confident  hope is exi-rassed that a treaty Avill be  signed next year. Sir Cavendish Boyle  and J. H. Dejonge of British Guiana, and  Mr. Tower have held numerous conferences Avith Mr. Kasson, iu Avhieh the proposed treaty has beeu urged as having  threefold advantages. The Guiana commissioners maintain that their large product of raAV sugar Avill come naturally to  the United States, and that it is to the  interest of this country to receive the  product rather than have it go abroad  for refining.

Considerable work has been done of  late in the Avay of stripping ami uncovering the Exchequer A'cin. It was crosscut yesterday at a distance of about ;j00  feet west of the present workings near  the boundary line of the Cleopatra, another claim in the Exchequer group, and  three samples taken gave big returns.  Two were taken from the surface and  assayed $302 and $32 respectively in  gold/Avhile the third, taken five feet be-  lo'w.jtho surface, went $209.(30 in gold. An  additional shift has been put on to push  development at this place. Work on the  upraise connecting the tunnel and shaft  continues, and about fifteen feet have  been comploted. It is expected that the  coiuieetion Avill be made about the 25 th  instant Avhen shipments Avill begin. The  ledge in the upraise continues strong,  and now shows up five feet Avide.  KASLO   DISTRICT.  Al'O. Moore, better known as Bonner's  Ferry Jock, the man avIio made his escape  from the jail on Saturday night, Yyas  brought back to town on Wednesday.  His captors Avere policeman Houston and  SteA'e CleA'elaud, avIio Yvent to Moore's  '���mining claim at CraAvford Bay, Avhere  Moore AA'as doing assessment work. He  offered no resistance and was not uiiAvill-  ing to come back. It is evident-that lie'  Yvas let out by interested parties and  assured by them that no search Avould be  made, otherAvise he could easily have  gone across the line and so haA'e been  safe. It is likely that there Avill be some  interesting and sensational developments  iioav, as the suspected parties are very  prominent in Kaslo. The authorities say  that they intend to go thoroughly into  the matter, and should the guilty parties  be found, they Avill get the full penalty  of the laAV.     .��� .'-..7. y '������ ,. -. -  ���y. ���'-��� YMIR: DISTRICT.

Victoria,-June S.���Tavo of the actions  against tho city for damages through the  Point Ellice bridge accident in Maj*, 1890,  were before the priA*y council in London  yesterday, and from a cable received by  the Colonist it seems one is going against  the city. The cases Avere Patterson vs.  Victoria and Lang,, vs. Victoria, bobh  judgments of bhe'British Columbia courts  being against the city. The former Avas  heard first, and of it the Colonist special  says: ���'Haldane and Crawford finished  bhe arguments for the appellants. Blake  was not called upon." This would seem  bo indicate that bhe privy council did uot  consider it necessary to hear Mr. Blake,  counsel for the respondent, Mrs. Patterson.' The action Avas brought by Mrs.  Patterson for the loss of her husband,  tn id she Avas awarded $13,500 damages by  justice McColl, the judgment being upheld by the full court. 2 "' *,  The, Lang case Avas opened yesterday  afternoon by W. J. Taylor, city barrister.  This is considered more farvorable to the  city, although the British Columbia  courts aAvarded Mrs. Lang $20,000 for the  loss of her husband Dr. Lang. A stay of  proceedings was granted, in the other  cases pending the decision of the privy  council in"the tAvo mentioned. 7  Gazette Appointments Yesterday.

An advance of over 70  per cent in the land taxes in one year is  crowding even Brandon rather close, but  * this is Avhat the finance committee's recommendation means. Last year the  'land in Nelson vras assessed at $S06,S70,  and the rate on it at ten mills, allowing  for prompt payment, provided a tax return oi' $S,00S. This year the value of  the same land lias been advanced to  $1,100,025, and the tax rate upon the in-  creased "value," ai't er"a 1 low il7g~~loFprom pt~  payment, has also been advanced twenty  per cent. This means tliat the city council proposes to fix things so that land  which produced $8068 in taxes last year  will this year produce $13,038. The "difference between $8008 and $.I.,-9_ represent, tlie advance which it is proposed to  lft'ike in hind, taxes for the ciU'reiit year.  It figin.es out an advance of soiuething,  over 70 per ecu t.  TtllS lii-ii-bors of the Nelson board of  school trustees are beginning to fear that  tjie doiiseqiiences of tliyir action in closing the Nelson  school,  owing   to- overcrowding, "will be visited upon tlie unoffending school teachers.   The  reason for  the suspicion is that so far  the school  teachers have not been paid their monthly salaries for May.    Instead  of 'cheek.-,  representing their monthly salaries, accompanying their regularin.otith.ly report  form  as  usual,   the  report form   came  Avithout  the  checks.    The  forms Avliich  the teachers make out Avill  give  the  education department  full   information as  to what time Avas lost during the month,  and the trustees fear, in view of the  implied threat of tlie department, that  deductions Avill be made in   the  salaries of  the teachers, Avho by order  of  the  trustees, were relieved from  duty  during a  portion of tlie month...; Tlie idea of. punishing a school teacher i'or the...o/Tense of.  a  school   trustee   is   new,    and   hardly  emanated froni the local   campaign   coin-  jit_it.ee  which  gave  .Dr.  10.

Tho Story of a Defrauded Miner's Mad l.esistnncc.  Peter had the. instinct, but that was  about all. That is to say, he prospected  for the joy ofthe chase, lie liked to  find ledges of red-brown rock, which became pyrites after lie had gone down a  way, and then pure white quart*.. He  liked to follow out the probable dip of  the lead, partly by experience, mostly by  instinct. He liked fco dig those rabbit  burrows of an expermental nature, running straight down or straight in, called  "prospector's shafts." Thus he would  got to knoAV the cross-section of a hill.as  you know the interior of the apple you  have just cut in two. Thus far Peter  succeeded as Avell, even better, than the  best. Then he lost it all. He either sold  out to parties insolvent, or on insufficient  security, or illegally. He never seemed  to learn how. Other men reaped where  he had sowed, while he moved ou to plow  up a iiew and A'irgiu country.  The worst of it aviis  that Peter, in a  patient way, Avas trying to gain a competency.    Back in Vermont there Avas a  farm  with more stones  than even these  stony hills could show, and with less gold  in its harvests than even in Peter's, negative  gleanings���for  here Peter at least  kept  out of debt.    But near the snake-  fence stood a little peak-roofed and clap-  boarded . house, with  blinds of emerald  green. . Over .the  house-.rioted Virginia  '   creepers.    Near -the ancient Avell SAvaycd  lilacs, broad and low*.    In the old-fashioned front yard won the chirp of crickets and hordes of Avhite butterflies  with  spots of sulphur-yellow.   Tho house Avas  empty and   thcyard overgrown ; yet to  tiie vaciint rooms'of one, or to thechoked-  out -lowers  of the  other,  Peter's  gentle-  thoughts eA'cr SAyarmed, like homing bees.  He   saAV  it   bathed in   the sunshine of  prosperity.    Jn   his A*ision  the yard Avas  orderly,  avoII kept; the house AA'as populous AA-ith  the affection  of loving hearts.  Foi in that Vermont country, those many  years, a girl had Avaited���growing older,  and    quieter,   and    more   resigned���for  Peter and the fortune he Avas to bring.  If  Peter had had more .self-assertion,  he might have retained some of the property lie had so patiently.relinquished.    Jf  - Pi.tor had had hiss faith, he might have  been in more haste to return.    And somc-  Avhere the qualities of meekness and faith  are   extolled above   all  else.    So  Peter  .Riiio  into a gulch  one afternoon, when  the birds Avere singing, all alone.    In his  slow Avay he built a  shack, made himself  comfortable, and started in.  J. irst lie niade a general stirvey of the  'Ugouji__^.___HQ__5iefl^  even to the shallow top of it filled with  loose stones; he followed out the sky- ���  line ;of every ridge; he seized frequeiit  opportunities of taking a Jong, diagonal  down the slopes.   In this he proceeded  rapidly,   but   carefully.     Noiie   of   the  bj-oad iiidicatioiis escaped him,   lie noted  accurately the various dikes, tlie general  "dip''  of the country, the general direction of the parallel ledges df striata, the  numerous cross-ledges /and irregularities  of structure.    Theii  he carried With lulu  a hand-pick, oiie end pointed, the other  forming a blunt hamnier, and a number  of canvas bags.    Fi'oiil   Ararious   places  near one another he knocked oif chunks  o." the j'Ockj which he broke into fine  pieces and mixtid thoroughly on an old  half-blanket.    After  tliat he raised the  Opposite edges of the blanket, about the  centre, in such a manner as to .divide the-  ernsh^d roek into two equal piwts.   Oiie  of these parts he tl-u'ew away.   The other  he mixed again as carefully as at first.  By a repetition of the process, he at hist  obtained an "average," Avhieh he stowed  iu one of the little canvas bags.  At |the end of tlie day, he dumped an  "average" into a heavy iron mortar over  Avhieh a pestile Avas suspended from a  springy sapling. By alternately :pul'Hng  down and letting iip on. the sapliug, the  pestile was made to crush the quartz  fragments into fine red and white sand.  This, Peter poured and scraped into a  flaring-sided iron pan, into which he let a  quantity of water. He then Avhirled the  pan in a peculiar manner, pausing to  rock it back and forth every few minutes. Much of the sand thus flowed over  the sides. After the first water was all  gone, he poured in some more. Thus hc  panned the Avaste out, until, at last,  nothing was-leffc in the angle but soine-  heavy black grains. These were the con:  centra to...    By a deft rocking in one di  rection they were made to string out in a  long, fan-shaped mass, at the apex of  which was the fine yellow gold���that is,  where there Avas tiny.  In this way Peter slowly got an idea of  the country.    Some ledges  which seemed  to him promising, and yet Avhieh did not  show free   gold at the   top, he  exploited  still   further.    With  a  charge or so of  powder  he penetrated   to a layer   below  the surface.    Or perhaps  he spent sever-.  al hard months making an irregular deep  hole  like a well,  from  whieh he carried  the debris in bags, climbing up a notched  tree.    Then   he   selected   more samples.  This is hard  work.    When he had learned the country pretty   thoroughly, Peter  staked out his  claims.    There Avere  four  of these... Then he commenced "sinking"  on   all   four.    Working   alone he could  make about a foot of progress a day.    By  winter he  Avas far enough below ground  so that he did not feel the cold.    Occasionally he Avould make a short cross-cut  ���that is, a tunnel across the trend of the  strata���to see how far it AA'as to the Avail;  sometimes he Avould drift���that is, tunnel  iu the direction of the strata���to see Iioav  the  quality of the lead held out.    All  this took time, as did the timbering aud  the trips for supplies.    Men  in the toAvn  called him   "Happy" Peter,   because he  was  ahviiys   humming   a   quaint   little  song, and because his eyes beamed Avith  such steady, gentle kindliness.  Time slips by rapidly in the hills. You  get up at daylight and cook breakfast;  you carry water up to your shaft; you  spend all the morning making a little  hole in the rock with a drill; at noon you  blast; in the afternoon you haul bucket-  , fuls of broken rock out to the windlass.  The night has come. You measure the  days by Avhat you have accomplished, and  it is little. Ypu measure time by your  trips to camp, and they are feAV. One  morning Peter, in looking into his little  square mirror, caught sight of a gray  hair. .He looked' closer. There - -AA'ere  many of them. J With a sudden great  pang he .realized that he Avas getting to  be an old man. He took from the table  the. miniature of a girl'with, great gray  eyes. He Avoudered if she A\*as "getting to  be an old Avoman. At the thought, Happy Peter became another man. He rode  to toAvii that very day���OA'er the mountains, through the gorges���and showed  them what he had found. Then' he returned.  The morning after meu came into the  lonely gulch. In an hour the side-hills  Avere covered Avith them. BetAveen "the  trees figures glanced to and fro, as  patches of red or flashes of light reflected  from polished metal. White claim-stakes  sprang, mushroom-like, in thick bunches  of four. In the canon Avas the gleam of  fires; the smell of Avood-smoke and of  bacon broiling Avas in the air; white lean-  tos, shone among the bare bushes iind  .saplings. Horses Avere feeding eagerly  on the half-frozen grasses and the broAVse  of trees, raising their heads as the creak  of Avheels further iIoavii the draw told of  still neAV-comers,  Peter Idbked Avith excited satisfaetitiii.  ,This_meant. pros;p-_ity,=4Ehis.niea.i it=that=  on tne niOrroAva new town would d-Sei've  a place on the map. This meant, above  all, that Peter's claims \yoiilct.have value,  that he could sell .them out at a price*  and that he could grow old happily in a  country Jtself as old as his distant youth.  He Avandered restlessly from oiie of his  four claims to the other. He told himself that -his time lie would make a 'careful bargain. The need was imminent in  tlie light of this discovery of gray hairs.  It had never seemed so before. He began  to forestall difficulties in his iiiiiid. It  should' be spot cash, nothing else. Peter  kneAV just what his claims were Avorth  and he kneAV what he Would get for them,  Tlie sale should be by deed, legally, this  for that. Then he Avould go east at once.  He cast in review the technicalities of  milling law. He had staked the claims  correctly; he hail done the proper assessment work on each. Perhaps it would  haA*e been better if he had had them recorded. At once he made a t.mr of his  property to see if all the notices Avere in  place. It had never occurred to him before that some one might "jump" him.  Peter began to think it might have been  wiser to have brought the purchaser in  here quietly, without agitating a boom.  Perplexed and tortured with doubts and  anxieties, he spent the remainder of the  day in going from claim to claim.  His accustomed aspect of gentle impassivity had left him. His eye became  shifty aud suspicious. His hands worked  nervously. In his breast there fermented  an excitement which would uot let him  rest even for an instant. For Peter realized that this Avas the last chance. Heretofore he had had the consciousness of  youth to encourage him. Failure had  meant only delay. Now it meant finality. -There was. left to. him no more  tiiiie. He saw that before he could again  dig his  shafts and blast  his  age Avould haA'e banished his dreams and  his hopes together.  He passed in feA*erish review the tliree  occasions wherein he had been swiudled.  The San Francisco man had giA'en him  Avorthless paper, and had resold tit once.  The ���DeiiA'er sharpers had merely taken  possession, and had refused to pay. The  St. Louis men had pretended that the  property was not as represented, and had  compromised at a ridiculously low figure.  Peter might have fought the thing successfully, but in his great diffidence of  mind he had been too easily persuaded of  the justice of the others' position. He  Avould ne%*er be caught so again; but  these men bewildered and puzzled him  always, and he confessed to himself a  great fear of their unknown wiles. At  the thought'that they might cheat him  in some new way he went into a panic.  He made another tour of the claims. It  was uoav* dark. At daAvn he Avent over  the ground again. He had not 'Slept all  night, and had eaten nothing since the  noon of the preceding day.  On returning to liis cabin,* he placed  the/miniature and the square mirror side  by side/on the table, and looked at them  intently for a long time.    Then he kicked  FULL LINE OF  his chair over backward, and went out to  his claims' once more. The first comers  ofthe stamp-ders had finished staking  out, and were iioav wandering about the  hills. Peter found a small group of them  on one of his claims. They were reading  his notice, and AA'ere laughing idly. Peter  knew two of them.  ���'Hullo, Happy!" called one, on catching sight of him, "what do ye call this?"  He Avinked at the rest. The history of  Peter's losses were Avell knoAvn to all.  He Avas pointing to the Aveatlicr-beaten  notice.  "AVhat?" asked Peter strangely.  "You ain't got this rendii.' right. She  says 'fifteen hundred feet.' The law  says she oughter read 'fifteen hundred  linear feet.' Yore claim i.s n. g. I'm  goin't' jump her on you!*' The statement was ridiculous. Everybody' knew  it, and  prepared to laugh, loud-mouthed.  Peter, without a Avord, shot the man  through the heart. Men said, at his  trial, that it Avas the most brutal and unprovoked murder they had ever known.  The Metal Market.  New York, June 8.���Bar silver  OOj.c,  Mexican dollars-Sj-c.
