.^London, February In.—The opening of.the first parliament, of the
new reign witnessed the usual'com-
petition on the part of-tho members
of the house qf commons:, to secure
, seats.    Despite the Arctic weather,
the members stole*up to the doors-

- Buckingham f« Palace,' ^-pressing
against   the iron 'fence' for'hours
„ Ibefore  the "procession, started.'   In-
the ..meantime-the, Horse;, ..Guards
arrived and formed in-line, from
* 'the'palace entrance to the principal
•gate. r Tlie members ^pf the1" royal
family,   including .- the - duke  and
/ duchess of'Connaught, the ."duchess,
of Cornwall and York,*the* duchess
■of Argyll, the duke' of Cambridge,
princess Henry of Battenburg and
prince" and   princess Christian" of
\ iSchleswig-Holstein,**  drove -out in
> plain two-horse coaches  with' t'wo
" ibox half an  hour before the profession formed.      ' i
When the six horse coaches, carrying the household appeared, the,
.Horse Guards''mounted band struck L
.up "God Save the King." The
.people, uncovered and the state
•coach rolled out of the, arch way'
and was greeted with a. roar of
•cheering. 'The Horse ..Guards took
•up positions ia front and behind the*
> tstate coaches., The heroes of the
•crowd'were^ members of the Strath-
•coua Horse (Canadian- volunteers
.just returned from South Africa),
who came, iu' several four horse
•brakes, carrying their carbines aDid
-wearing informal slouch hats and
khaki overcoats. They alighted in
front' of the palace.,and marched
down the line to a position a short
distancefrom itr where they were
_ drawn .up while the , procession
passed. The king saluted "them
most cordially and the people __
cheered them "repeatedly. From"
Buckingham palace to'the house of
lords the procession proceeded without a hitch at a walking pace. All
along the routes the greatest enthusiasm -was displayed, and-the
approaches to the houses of parliament were black with people.
The king and queen quickly got
-out, of the state carriage at "the
royal entrance and went up the
marble stairway into the robing
room. Outside the robing room, in
the royal gallery which leads to
the house of lords, were about 500
persons, chiefly women, who had
been waiting patiently hours on
stands especially erected for the
ceremony. Among them were disconsolate peers and commoners who
sought sympathy for their hard
luck in being unable to get places
jn the chamber. _ „ ,   '
The king was delayed iu the rob
ing room and the Yeomen of the
Guard and gentlemen-at-arms lining
the aisle between the standsehif ted
their positions uneasily, f Then the
robing room doors swung open and
the procession as previously formed
moved slowly through the dingy
gallery. No., funeral vcould. have
been quieter. The aristocratic spectators were perfectly still.*;   "* -»■"•*--■»

dubbed for-the occasion, centred on.
the queen's dress, which it-]could
be seen,"in spite of the ermine cape,
was   of deep black and   glittered
, with jewels, while across the breast
was'the ribbon of * the Order of the

W-hen their1 majesties reached
the throne the lord chancellor stood
on the king]s right; on the queen's
left"was* lord tLondonderry,. while
lord Salisbury stood at;the foot of
the throne. In tlie chairs were tbe
duchess" of Cornwall t -and York,'
princess Charles of Denmark, princess Christian of Schleswig-Holstein
and the duchess of Connaught, Fife
iand Argyle. The dukes of Con-
' naught and Cambridge stood near
lord Salibsury. .
With a motion of his hand the
king signified that the'distinguished
gathering should sit and the queen,
whom his majesty had gallantly
led to the throne by the hand, was
the' first to do so. ' Her example
was followed on all sides.
The gentleman usher of the black
rod, after a deep obeisance, hurried
to the house of commons, and after
a few minutes the speaker, wearing
his state robes and attended by the
sergeant-at-arms and * chaplain,
appeared at the bar.. Behind them
surged the members of the house of
commons. Seldom have Great
Britain's legislators presented such
a turbulent spectacle. Several hundred of them struggled fiercely to
get'in a space which could scarcely
hold fifty persons. In solemn tones
the lord chancellor administered
the oath, with the king sitting.
The lord chancellor, then kneeling,
handed the king a roll, which he
signed, after which all present
stood up and the king put on the
field marshal's plumed hat, rose and

to"" The- Tribune.]—Today's -^trains*

with'the residents of near-by towns.
As,the senior Sandon team did not
put in an* appearance, a fresh draw
became necessary-to fill,.the- place
for, v-yesterday**i" afternoon ^arid a
scratch Rossland team was ~ gotten
(together to play the Sandon juniors.
In the'strict, sense of the jvordr
.perhaps, .many of "-the players on
both sides could scarcely be' called
juniors, as several of the. Sandons,
notably- Cliffe- and > Crawford, had
played with tflie_ seniors.   On the.
home team McCreary as goal won a
name for himself last year. The
game was an exciting one and was
won by Sandon by a score of 5 to 0.
The Sandons played a good combination game. Most_pf the passing
was done by- the Sandons from'
wings to center and in the center
forward.   -

and almost; scored on-several occasions. In the curling there now remain in for the grand challenge cup

" Anotlier feature of the situation
which has presented itself is, that
with the rapid growth of local mining and smelting, it has been found
difficult to obtain a sufficient supply of coal and coke from the
-Crow's Nest Pass Coal, Company!
This fuel shortage has been for
some time past a cause of very
great anxiety on the part of the
smelters, and it seems ;,plain that if
anything -should happen ~> which
would divert any considerable part
of the Fernie coal output from the
smelters of the interior of British
Columbia there would not be a
sufficient supply for smelting purposes. And, since the, .opening of
the .present source of/supply reduced smelt<ng charges, it follows
that if the old sources of' supply of
coal and coke "have to be looked up
it will mean a considerable increase
in the present smelter treatment
"Having in view the fact that
the concessions at present' enjoyed
by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company were originally given with
the view to stimulating the development of the resources of the province, it is only "reasonable to expect that the federal ^government
will in the present emergency take
such measures as will secure to the
country the fruits of this policy. If
a condition is created at Fernie by
which there remains no coke or coal
available from the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Company for the British Columbia smelters, the fact that the
price is fixed at which the company
must sell to us, will be of no use
whatever. In my opinion it is the
duty of the government to take
such action as will prevent the
natural wealth of the coal fields of
East Kootenay from going to build
up    Industrial   interests   in   the,

to hear lord Kimberley repudiate
'all, idea, of asking the government

dissatisfaction with the conduct of
the war in South Africa. He said
the present ^ conditions filled him
with apprehension. The government had been living in a fool's
paradise. Unless they enabled
general Kitchener to speedily terminate the war the situation could
easily become more dangerous. If
the government attempted to put
the whole military system on a
more satisfactory basis they would
receive every support from the
Lord Salisbury arose and added
his congratulations to the mover
and seconder of the address and
proceeded to refer to the manner in
which the country's loss had been
received throughout the world.
Continuing, lord Salisbury said the
country could now hope confidently
that the promise given by the king
that he would follow in his mother's
steps would be fully and abundantly borne out. If so it would be
the greatest triumph for the principle of monarchy and for the name
of the British union. Dealing with
the war, lord Salisbury thought
there was nothing unusual in the
length of the campaign. He referred lord Kimberley to the Indian
mutiny and the American war between the south and north. Iu
these and the South "African war
there was a resemblance. In Bosnia
it took two years and the whole
power of Austria to conquer the
peasants. Where great enthusiasm
and persistency existed in a country
like South Africa, months must
elapse befoie tranquility could be
restored. Therefore, he did not believe there was any real ground for
the discontent or apprehension expressed by lord Kimberley.

A. J. Balfour, the government
leader, followed. On congratulating the king he said his majesty
had followed precedent in relinquishing to the - government all
crown property, and he might' be
assured that the commons were
ready to make ample provision.
Referring to the question raised by
sir Henry Campbell-Banner man "as
to the misconduct of the allied
troops in China, he declared that
the behavior, of British troops
there had beeu most exemplary.
He admitted that the government had not foreseen that
the leaders of the Boers
would be "so ill advised in their
own interest and the interest of the
country as to continue the struggle.
The government, he said, had exceeded lord Kitchener's demands
rather than fallen short of them,
adding that the0Boer leaders knew
perfectly well that if they lay down
their arms their persons and property will be respected and equal
rights guaranteed to all.
" More than this," continued Mr.
Balfour, "the Boer leaders know
tliat as soon as it becomes possible
free institutions will be adopted.
His majesty's government holds
that it would be perfect insanity to
grant all the institutions of self-
government while the effects of the
war are still visible. We have put
our hands to the plough and shall
not withdraw. The war will be
continued until it comes to the only
conclusion consistent with our
honor."       •

They.are men, who some  years ago championed the application made by the N. & F.
