Helmcken May be Attorney-General.
Special to the Tribune.
Aaictohia, July I.—Reports come from
'Vancouver and from Ottawa through
Vancouver to the eifect that premier
Semlin has called upon attorney-general
Martin to hand in his resignation.
Premier Semlin was interviewed tonight
by tlie Tin-: Tihiu'nk correspondent on
the subject of the report from Vancouver that Iks had asked for the resignation of the attorney-general. Me seemed
much interested in the report, ini|iiiring
as to its source, but after some hesitation
lie said lie preferred not to discuss
the subject. "Will yon say yes or no?"
he was asked. "I cannot say anything
whatever tonight." was the reply.
liofore iMr. Semlin could be seen Mr.
Cotton had been interviewed on the subject. Though he too said lie had no
statement to make, it was evident from
his replies that the report was probably
well founded.
Lieutenant-governor Mclnnes i.s absent
on a trip to Atlin, whieli fact may delay,
any public statement its to the present
crisis. Overtures looking to the formation of a coalition government have been
in progress here for several days,and the
name of If. I). Ilelincken is freely mentioned as the successor of Martin.
I). W. Higgius also intimates that
in,. any cabinet '■" reconstruction
lie must be included.:^ Rumor lias connected sir Hibbert Tapper's hurried return from Ottawa with the provincial
crisis, but if tliere is any intention of inviting him to join the ministry the fact
has been-kept profoundly secret. Attorney-genera,! Martin "went to Nanimo this
morning and probabiy is discussing tho
affair with McKechnie, president of the
council, and Samuel M. Robins of the
Vancouver Coal Company, who is said to
have been a considerable factor in the
recent election.
A statement appearing in the Vancouver Province tonight, under Victoria
date, and probabiy emulating from at-
toriiey-gcnerel Martin himself, says that
premier Semlin called on the attorney-
general on Saturday and asked him to
resign for tliree reasons: First that he
had neglected the business of his'dopai'fc-
nient; second, because he had disclosed
private business of the 'cabinet; third, because he had brought the ■government into disrepute by liis actions at the Rossland
banquet;. Attorney-general Martinposi-
ti vely refused to resign.   The first charge;
r*i» -" ;'&Kv.» «a si.™.:?*". ,/*.V.'^Z..!__k_?1.',_!^v_:fe"__,
surgents have promised to release the
sick soldiers, who number several hundred, and the civic officials, but they intend to keep the friars, expecting that
the church will finally pay a ransom, lt
is reported that the civilia.n prisoners are
being concentrated at Tar hie as well as
some of the other ports recently opened,
from which they could be shipped to
Manila. The Spaniards assert that the
Filipinos are impressing all the military
prisoners to engineering, hospital and
clerical work.
Another Flood Disaster in Texas.
Dallas, Texas, .July I.—Another Mood
disaster, which from first bulletins received here to niglit appears to be worse
than that of last week, oceurod today in
the Rrazolos valley, about one hundred
miles down the river from Calvert.
Alarming reports come of* loss of life in
the vicinity of lh-ookshiie. One report
stiys that this afternoon there were from
300 to '100 people on a small island near
Brookshire, and the water was rising
rapidly. There was no means of escape
and fears are expressed that they have
been drowned.
Otis Will Have 44. OOfXMen.
Washington, July 4.—Having heard
from General Otis that he needs 0388 men
to fill up the regular regiments and 2000
men for the two volunteer regiments he was authorized to enlist, orders will be issued today
for the enlistment of 15,000 men.
This will actually give Otis about 44,000
men. Allowing, a loss of 12 per cent for
disease, wounds etc., which.he stated as
the present percentage of " ineffective.-,"
he will have, instead of an effective force
of 30,000 men, one of 39,000.-
Agreement Eeached on the Cable.
London, July 5.—The Daily News says

Pacific cable conference lias arrived at a
satisfactory basis. The general principles of the scheme have been provisionally agreed -upon, and will be communicated „to the. colonial.; govQrnmtsnts.'.„' JJji-1

Canadians in Good Form.
HiCNl.Hiv, July I.—The river Thames
presented an animated scene this afternoon on the opening of the Henley races.
There are fifty-three entries as against
fifty-four in I SOS, of whom tliree have
crossed the seas, without mentioning
G'audin, who, though rowing under
Thames colors, is ambitious to carry off
the diamond sculls for France. The oarsmen of the Argonaut Rowing Club of
Toronto have already made many friends
here, and will make a bid for the grand
challenge cup and stewards challenge
Hrnley, July 4.—Though tho absence
of a body swing in the Canadians makes
the English critics shake their heads,
close observers point out the important
fact that their long slide makes their
stroke look much shorter than it is. The
Dutch crew from Delft arrived today
and meets the Canadians in the first heat
for the grand. The Hamburgers also
continue to attract much mention.
Most English crews are well up to Henley form though none are of extraordinary merit. The Leander eight, for the
grand, is not, perhaps,- quite up to tho
level of former years and many, have
already spotted the combined Trinity,
Cambridge crew as the winners.
Balliol has greatly improved under McLean's coaching. This crew will meet
Leander in the first heat, and if Balliol
wins that crew will be hard to beat in
the final.
Eaton's claim to the Ladies' Challenge
plate is only to be contested by Hartley
and Pembroke, Cambridge.
Great things are expected of Black-
staff in the diamouds, though Pox of
Pembroke, Cambridge, is highly regarded.
In the meantime Howell, the American
holder of the trophy, drives his boat
through the water as only he can. Wednesday was the day originally fixed for
the opening bf the regatta,'-but. the date
has been changed to Tuesday. :';

Tenders Called for Sewers.
A special meeting of the city council
was hold yesterday afternoon for the
purpose of considering the tenders received for the supply of (/he necessary
pipe for the proposed waterworks extension. The several tenders were opened
and read and turned over to the city engineer, so that he could compare them
and report to the public works committee'at its meeting at the close of the
council's session.
John Croft's letter offering to sell his
scavenger''plant to the city for $550
was received and filed.
In response to P. Burns & Company's
communication asking the council to provide an entry on the side of thoir warehouse, the council decided to call for tenders for the removal of sufficient earth
to comply with the same.
Messrs. Gamble & O'Reilly had a communication before the council asking for
a settlement for the land covered by the
city's electric liglit dam upon the basis of
some suggested agreement.
Alderman Thomson repudiated any
verbal or other agreement on the part of
Alderman Fletcher explained that

were upon the ground Avith the owner of
the property he, made an offer to accept
$1200. This Avas a great deal more than

the necessary lead $781, teaming

trenching $3200, or $21,493 in all.
The members of the committee hail
therefore to decide between cast pipe at
an increased cost of $7,400 and steel pipe
The cast pipe was generally conceded as
the most serviceable but it iin-olvetl a,

Public Feeling Against the Measure,

A rather curious case came up   yesterday before police  magistrate Crease.    It
appears that James Aranfc Irving, brake-
man on the Canadian Pacific railway between here and   Robson, missed   a black
coat, A-est and trousers on   his return one
evening   from   his  daily run.    This Avas
last August, and he could find no trace of
fchoni anywhere till last Saturday during
the   celebration   he  espied   some   of   his
long lost garments on the back of  Arnofc
Munro, wheat one time wis a Canadian.
Pacilic   railway   employee.      Irving  obtained a search warrant, and the trousers
were  also  discovered iu   Muuro's   house.
Accordingly    he    laid    an    information
against   Munro.    When    the   latter  appeared before the  magistrate yesterday
he  stated  that  he  had  got the clothes
from a man named Murdoch   in payment
of a debt.    Murdoch is now in   Montana.
He also offered to compensate Irving for
the  use  of the  garments.    Beyond the
faofc of the clothes being in his possession,
tliere AAras iio evidence to connect Monro
with  the  theft, and   the magistrate decided to resciwe his decision   until today.

If he  wishes to change .any of his colleagues,  he should do so without hesitation.  the organ of subsidy-hunting Liberalism,  worries about  the private faults  of Hon.  Joseph   Martin,   and   preteuds  that the  province is  brought to the brink of ruin  by differences between the attorney-general and Hon.   I'\ C.   Cotton.    Onttiria envies   British Columbia   when   tho   latter  province is so  well oil' that it can afford  to get excited about   the injudicious performances  of lion. .Joseph Martin   under  extreme provocation from a festive mob  at   Kossland.    Ontario  has   no  need   to  speculate as to the  private faults of any  members of  the  provincial  government.  Their collective lack of public enthusiasm  is a public   fault which makes this, province the easy victim of the subsidy-hunting gangs which raided the treasury with  the consent  of both   parties.    The attorney-general of Ontario does not allude to  banqueters   who  insult him as "tramps  in dress  suits,"  but he  sits with  folded  arms while-corruption is rampant in one  constituency and fraud is rioting iu AVest  Elgin.    British Columbia, with a government of strong men, who quarrel among  themselves, is more to be eiiA'icd than Ontario,  with a government of weak men,  who agree  jn, everything, -especially  in  their desire"to cling-to.office.    The performances  for the'1 benefit of the Hardy  government in'West Elgin -give Ontario  more reason to blush than the worst construction .which.' can  be-put   upon   tlie  Rossland  episode, in  whieli Hon. .Joseph  MarLin'foolishly and injudiciously figured,  A Prosperous Bank.  "Monetary Times.  We have already had occasion Lo notice  the unusual earnings of the Imperial  Bank of Canada during the past year.  The earnings for the year were $302,676.-  30, or at the rate of rather more than 15  percent on the capital; and enabled the  addition of $100,000 to rest accouut, a.iid  the writing oif $20,000 from the bank  premises account, after distributing nine  per cent to shareholders, it is very  agreeable to observe that the nieeting on  'Wednesday approved the proposal to  contribute $20,000 to a. pension fund, for  officers and employees of the bank. A  generous paragraph in the report refers  to the loyal earnestness of the staff in  working for the best interests of the institution. Ton years having elapsed  since the last increase of the capital  stock of the bank was, authorized, and  the deposits and circulation having more  than doubled in the volume in the interval, the directors recommended an increase of the capital stock to $2,r>00.000.  This was approved by shareholders, and  will be carried into effect during the ensuing year. The total assets have been  swelled during the last year to $I8,81'V  000, and of this large sum no less a proportion than $S.;"i:*j!),000 is in readily available shape. The death of Hugh Ryan, a.  valued director of the bank for eleven  years, having left a vacancy upon the  hoard, if; was filled by tlie election of  William Hendrie of .Hamilton.

Next week another mine will be acldeil  to Moyie's list oi' shippers. It will be the  Society Girl, situated just east of the St.  Eugene mine, and so far as can be determined traversed by the same lead. The  wagon road was finished Thursday, and  first load of ore will be hauled down over  over it next Monday or Tuesday. The new  wagon road is about two miles in length  and connects with the St. Eugene road  just below that mine. This makes the  distance between the mine and Moyie by  the road close to five miles, though as the  crow flies the distalice is not over two  miles. The Society Girl -was located iu  the fall of 1S97 by Charles Farrel, and is  still owned by him. The development  work consists of two 20-foot shafts sunk  on the lead. Out of these over a carload  of ore has been taken. There is still  plenty of ore in sight iu. the shafts, but a  tunnel will be driven in about 200 feet  further down the hill to tap the ore body  at a depth of about seventy-five feet,  thus affording a more economical meaus  of taking out the ore.
