THE TRIBUNE  IS THE OLDEST  NEWSPAPER  PRINTED  IN THE  KOOTENAYS  Saturday, November 7, 1903  NELSON IS THE TRADE CENTER OF SOUTHEASTERN BRITISH  COLUMBIA  THE POLITICAL SITUATION AND |HE TROUBLES OF MINE-OWNERS  ; The McBride Government and Its Shrine  and the M.P.Ps. Who Would Have  Worshipped at the Shrine, Reviewed  by a Practical Politician.  Advices from Victoria during the week  closing toda}- show  , that the McBride government is trying to get itself in order so  that it can successfully meet  the  house  on  the  26th  instant.  ���. The two defeated ministers, attorney-general McPhillips and  provincial secretary Goodeve, finding that vacant seats could not  \ be found for them, have sent iu their resignations, and the resignations have been accepted with regret, at least as to one,  McPhillips.    The premier has mustered up sufficient courage to  t'^ask Charles Wilson, K.C, to become his attorney-general, and  Mr. Wilson will now have hourly fits of fear for his re-election  in Vancouver.  Making due allowance for the prejudice and bias of The Tribune, the change places the control of the law" department of  ' the province in the hands of a lawyer who is a safe counsellor  coupled with no' little ability, and takes it from a lawyer who  was a mere academic declaimer in the house. Now that Albert  Edward McPhillips is no longer attorney-general, he will probably sink into obscurity as a political factor.  The taking of a third lawyer into the government in the person of Fred J". Fulton of Kamloops as president of the council is  a sop to the "interior." The position carries no salary, and as  Kamloops is< far-distant from Victoria, Mr. Fulton will not be  able to attend'many meetings of the cabinet when the ��� legislature is not in session. Therefore his advice will not embarrass  the government. . No doubt, there will be other changes at no  ��� distant date, but for the present premier:McBride will probably  *^^6_____i_fchief commissioner ofclands: and" works and the rdual ~ role.  of acting; as minister, of mines and provincial secretary will be  preformed by Hon. 'Robert F. Green, who will not be satisfied  until he is at the head of the lands and works department. . Mr.  Green is ambitious, and has a political persistency that often is  more potent than ability. .    ���      .      ���  .  Since tha election a number of members-elect have made pilgrimages to the political shrine erected for the time being in a  room' at the end of the lands and works corridor in the parliament buildings at Victoria. F. Carter-Cotton, M.P.P., came  from Vancouver and went back home disappointed. John Houston came down from the mountains of Kootenay, but being an  unholy M.P.P. was not allowed to touch the shrine. He went  back to Nelson and swears he will kick the smug and holy ones  -^who=have-charge^of^the"shrine=out^of"the^temple=on*-the^first-op-^  pbrtunity. Tom Taylor, M.P.P., who had a whole hatful of  promises that were never meant to be kept, journeyed from  Revelstoke and returned home with more promises. W. J.  Bowser, M.P.P., an ambitious one from the city that elected the  "Solid Five," crossed the straits and then re-crossed back again  disgruntled because he was not made attorney-general. C. W.  D. Clifford , M.P.P., hurried down from the north coast after  having knocked out Peter Herman in Skeena. He was not allowed to view the shrine at other than long range. Tom Gifford, M. P. P., slowly meandered, via the mouth of Fraser  river and Plumper's Pass, to the shrine, and was allowed  to kneel beside it. He is now back iu New Westminster selling  watches to fishermen from Japan. Price Ellison, M.P.P., came  from the wheat-fields of the Okanagan.' He did not see the  shrine; not even the corridor leading to the room in which it is  placed, and now he is back at his home in Vernon saying John  Houston of Nelson is a disgrace to the Liberal-Conservative  party. George Fraser, M.P.P., who knocked out an Authority  on the Constitution and a Socialist at one .blow, looked for the  shrine, couldn't find it, and returned ,to Grand Forks. Harry  Wright, M.P.P., rode all the way to Victoria on a Great Northern flyer, determined to fall down before the shrine or die. His  supporters in Ymir are anxiously awaiting the news that he fell  and got the coveted portfolio. ���      .  And all the time the people of British. Columbia are wondering where they are going to get off. at so> as to view,-not a shrine,  but A STABLE GOVERNMENT.  Joeoph Martin lias addressed an open  letter to the lieutenant-governor with re-'  gord to the Houston incident, a copy of  which has been issued to the press. The  letter reads us follows:  Sir,���I have read with a great deal of iu-  torest the correspondence between Mr.  John Ho-nstou, M. P. P. for Nelson, aud  yourself,'recently published by your direction.    As the matter in question raises  constitutional questions of great importance to the people at large, I venture to  write you this open letter with reference  to it.  I was present in the house when the incident to which you refer occurred. The  conduct of Mr. Houston at the time was  deserving of censure, but it appears to me  that the real culprit was the leader of the  government. When Mr. Houston declined  to obey tho order of the speaker, it was  the duty of tho leader of the house to at  ouce propose a motion suspending Mr.  Houston until he was prepared to obey the  speaker's orders. This was not done, and  the'failure to take this course it seems to  me was a direct attack upon the dignity  of the house. The point was raised by tho  opposition, but nothing was done. The  ouly person who was in a position to assert the dignity of the house was yourself.  If you had suggested to the leader of the  government that it was his duty to take  the matter up, no doubt it would have  been done at. once. Your letter to Mr.  Houston shows that you were well aware  of the incident, but it would seem to me  that you have punished in a very severe  manner the fault of Mr. Houston, which,  after all, was only an indiscretion, and  overlooked at the time the fault of the  premier, whose conduct was inexcusable.  "With regard to the incident itself, while  not wishing to excuse it in any way, I  must say that during the time I have been  a member of the local house in British  Columbia, I have been a spectator of  many, much worse incidents, most of  which have occurred since you occupied  your present position.  Mr. Houston's error arose from a failing  which is common to very many of our best  citizens. Time and again, I have witnessed worse conduct arising from the same  cause, indulged in the house by members  of the administration, and although your  honor had the power of dismissal, nothing  was done. I must also say that ou several occasions much more disgraceful in-:;  cidents have- occurred without the excuse*'  on the part of the perpetrator of the failing to whicli I refer, and.yet your honor;  instead of punishing the offenders, did not  hesitate to confer upon them the highest  honors.  With regard to the constitutional point  involved I infer that Mr. McBride, the  premier, assumes all responsibility for  your action in refusing to accept Mr.  Houston, otherwise I would look upon the  incident as a grave attack tipon the con-  stitutional liberties of. the people.  I might point out to you* that on the 7th  of' September last, I \yrpte to you protesting very vigorously agaiiistthe ���government .'being allowed, :after'- fixing- the:,da};e;  'bfrthe'elec.tipn^  change, the date to' the 3rd of. October/  leaving us less than two weeks between:  the notice of the change and nomination  day. . In response, to'this letter your honor  informed me that the- matter had been  laid before your responsible advisers. In  other;words, you refused to interfere. At  that time, as a matter of fact, you had no  responsible advisers, and I have always  understood that in case a government  holding office without the approval of the  people attempts to take an unfair advantage of its position, it is the constitutional  right of the opposition party and the public ait large to look to the representative of  the crown to protect them! In the case in  question the unfairness of the action of the  government was very plain, and, as "a  matter of fact, lias resulted, as no doubt  it was intended to, in retaining the present government in power. They have, as  you are aware, a bare majority of one,  and the election of their candidate in Lillooet by acclamation was brought about  directly through the said change of date  of the election. Just at that time our  candidate retired, and the time was too  short ^to^jeuabl^^  Judging from the result in Cariboo, which  joins Lillooet, and in which the political  conditions are practically the same, the  Liberal candidate in Lillooet, if there had  been one, would have been elected easily.  Adverting  again to   the case of Mr.  Houston it strikes pie us n very strange  thing that such a severe punishment should  be meted out for so comparatively trivial  an offence, and if! $hi_ practice were to  hold throughout, a great umny very prominent individuals would bito the dust.  I might point ouptoVypp. that in the dominion parliament'uistauce after instance  can be pointed out where politicians of  much greater prominence than Mr. Houston have been guilty from the same cause  of similar breaks, 'ijtnd yet 'no such punishment overtook theni. tn this list I could  include as distinguished1 ajman as the late  sir John A. Macdqpald and piany other  prominent men on>;both the Liberal and  Conservative sides'y l?y .���  Mr. Houston hag' I think,-in his letter  to you pointed outjclearly^he grave injustice of the whole proceeding. It has been  demonstrated, as he sj-ttes;��� that the people of Nelson haverconfidenee in him, and  110 doubt they areijully aware of his one  failing. Three tiijies he lias been elected  mayor of that thriving ci^y and twice as  member, for the {provincial house. His  last election to thg - house, took place of  course after the incident ih question, and  it would appear toybe contrary to justice  that the .electors ;$f-��� the ���;city of Nelson  should be denied vthe privilege of their,  member taking liis'seat' in the executive  council for so small'fin offence, especially  as no law has ye't beeii pafesed that members of the executi'ye. j-puiibil must be total abstainers.

Mr.  McBride has a ,ve*rjfnarrOTy majority, so  small indeed that a couple of votes in the  legislature would jiurn the scale against  him. He invited Jphn Houston of Nelson to a seat in the cabinet. Sir Henry  Joly has refused to accent Mr. Houston as  a minister for reasops ���\vh}ch have not as  yet been authoritiyely,' disclosed. From  an unofficial source, it-appears that the  'chief objection of his honpr to Mr. Houston is that he was obstreperous in the late  legislature, addressed' the speaker disrespectfully, and declined to submit to his  ruling. Such conduct'has lately been  rather common in #he British Columbia  legislature because&overnments have not  been strong, enougbXto control the assem-  My, . We do not Suppose sir Henri would  ���jev!-i^.-cure._--0m|i>fttft.c_ibinet4_- all-who'  participated in legislativedisturbancesare  to be debarred from .ministerial positions.'  But these affairs, serious as they jmay appear at the moment, are mere passing  trifles. It is absurd to suppose that the  representative of the crown is to take note  pf them and play .the angry schoolmaster  \yhen the naughty boys are. sent up to  ''him for promotion. Sir Henri, unless he  has much more serious objections, errs on  the side of punctiliousness. The effect of  his refusal, to accept Mr. McBride's advice amounts to a dismissal of the government; * If the premier were to accept it  as such it would put tlie lieutenant-governor in a very:embarrassing position. As  it is, sir Henri appears to be simply playing into the hands of those who desire to  prolong the political uncertainty in British Columbia in order that thoy may profit by the disturbances.  "Comparisons Are Odious/'  When Rossland is not fulsome in its  praise, it is bitter in its vindictive hostility. The Rossland Miner throughout  June and July last was most fulsome in  its praise of premier McBride, calling him  a "heaven-born statesman.'' Now it calls  him a weakling and a coward. A.S.  Goodeve, who played the part of provincial secretary in the McBride government  for less than two mouths, is back in Ross-  They Are Both Blameable.  After a battle the slain are given burial.  After an election, which is a political  battle, the slain are not buried, but they  are told to go way back and sit down.  After the political battle that ended on  October 3rd, had premier McBride told  Albert Edward McPhillips and A. S.  Goodeve, who were both among the slain,  to go way back and sit down, and filled  ,the positions they occupied with men who  can win fights, he would today be looked  'oh as a successful leader. Instead of  having Charles Wilson, K.C, sworn in  as attorney-general on the Tuesday following the election, he has waited for a  month, and then only had him sworn in  when he found he could not get a constituency opened for the defeated attorney-  general. Had Wilson been sworn in when  he should have been in all fairness to himself and to -he Liberal-Conservative party,  he would have been returned without opposition. Now he may be defeated, and  with his defeat the McBride government  will go out of office and the Liberal-Conservative party out of control of the provincial goyernment for a long time to come.  If this should happen, who should the rank  and file of the Liberal-Conservatives hold  responsible? Mr. Wilson for not insisting  oh the premier carrying out what was his  plain duty? or Mr. McBride for not doing  what was so obviously his duty to the  Liberal-Conservative party? . The Tribune is of the opinion that both are to  blaihe. The One was honored by the  party, by being selected its leader in a duly  called convention. The other has assumed  to be the party's leader because of his being called on by the lieutenant-governor  to form a government at a time when the  ,party's elected leader was not a member  of the legislature. It is the duty of the  Liberal-Conservatives of Vancouver to return Charles Wilson; K.C, leaving the  decapitation of the party's incapable leaders to a future convention, of the party.  "Unanswerable Facts/'  Victoria Times, October31st: "Wohave  refrained hitherto from commenting upon  the Nelson meeting, and the resolutions  whicli were passed there, because we believe that the good people of that city will,  -whenithe,"_rBt-;_cnp^s6of.-refiouto'o3Jt.rhas  passed, iegret 'their attitude "to His-honor!  the lieutenant-governor. It is some satisfaction to learn that the resolution did not  pass, as represented in the Colonist, by an  overwhelming, but by(a'-very bare majority. - Mr. Houston's speech, from, the extracts which we published yesterday, was  evidently inflammatory in character, and  misled some of his auditors, the sane and  reasonable presentation of the whole posi- -  tion by Messrs. Taylor and Deane, being  naturally represented as a partisan sentiment, and not what it actually was, unanswerable fact." [Less than thirty stood  up as opposed to the resolution referred to  by The Times. Of those who stood up,  less than a dozen were Liberals like Taylor and Deane; fhe others, with possibly  three exceptions, were Liberal-Conservatives like W. A. Macdonald, K.C, who  voted against Houston or refrained from  voting at the last election.���Editok The  Tribune.]      *  Gold Bricks.

Annual Meeting of Members of a Successful  Agricultural Mining, and Industrial Association  The first annual mooting of tho Nelson  Agricultural and Industrial Association  was held iu tho board of trade room at  Nelson on Thursday afternoon. Tlie members iu attendance wero: D. P. Jolly of  Trail, James Tarry of Slocan Junction, J.  W. Ford of Procter, C. W. Busk of Kokanee Creek, A. B. Shannon of Willow  Point, aud W. J. Wilson, James McPhee,  J. J. Malone, William Gosnell, F. B.  Gibbs, J. W. Holmes, A. D. Emory, Fred  Starkey, W. E. McCandlish, J. J. Chambers, William Walmsley, Jacob Dover,  W. C. McLean, A. J.

Irving, J. F. Weir, A. H.  Clements, Wesley Calbick, George F.  Motion, E. C. Traves, J. E. Annable. and  John Houston, all of Nelson.  Vice-President Traves called the meeting to order, in the absence of president  Johnston. On motion, John Houston  was made chairman, and on taking the  chair said: "The first exhibition of the  association was a success and a surprise.  It showed what could be done in the way  of agriculture and horticulture in a section of country believed to be only fit for  mining. The exhibits in the way of fruit  and vegetables were, in both variety and  quality, better than are often made iu sections of country devoted wholly to agriculture."  The reports of officers for the year were  read and adopted. The report of the secretary showed the receipts for the your to  have been $-,071.90, and the expenditures  S3,709.70, which leaves $862.20 cash on  hand.  The election of officers resulted in the  re-election by acclamation of Janios Johnston, president; E. C. Traves, vice-president; J. E. .Annable, secretary, and J. J.  Malone, treasurer. Twenty-five nominations were made for tho sixteen directors,  and a ballot had to be taken.  On motion of (J. VV. Busk, Article 8 of  the Constitution was amended to permit  of au honorary president, two honorary  vice-presidents, and fifteen honorary directors, five of the honorary directors to  be ladies, and that the honorary oilicers  may be non-members. Mr. Busk in supporting his motion said it was necessary  for tlie success of the association that out-,  siders who took an interest in agricultural pursuits should be given a voice in  its management, nnd the best way to do  this was to. elect as honorary members  men who lived iu towns and districts  tributary to Nelson. He also said that  the ladies of Nelson, who had done so  jnuch to make tho first exhibition a success, should be recognized by giving ladies  a place on the board of directors.  While the scrutineers were counting  the ballots for the sixteen directors, thc  following-named were elected honorary  officers: John Houston, M.P.P., honorary president; W. A. Galliher, M.P.,  and Harry Wright, M.P., vice-presidents;  and Mrs. A. D. Kini/iy, Mrs. Harry Bird,  Mrs. Dr. Rose, Mrs. D. C. McMorris-, Mrs.  R. S. Hale, mayor I'urrell of Grand Forks,  mayor Dean of Kossland, mayor Schofield  of Trail, F. E. Simi'*'0" of Cranbrook, G.  O. Buchanan of Kaslo, W. H. Covert of  Grand Forks, K'���I'''1 Sheill of Fire Valley, and E. AV. Widdowson of Ymir,  directors.  The scrutineer.-' (Messrs. Starkey and  Gibbs) reported H ballots cast for directors and the resnlt of their couut as elect  ing : W. J. Wilson, James McPhee, Fred  Starkey, J. A. Irving, J. A. Kirkpatriek,  A. J. Marks, D. F. Jelly, C W. Busk,  James Tarry,  A. B. Shannon, Dr. G. A.  B. Hall, P. E. Wilson, J. W. Holmes, A  D. Emory, D. C. McMorris, and A. H.  Clements, and on motion of William Gosnell their election was made unanimous.  An article on the agricultural possibilities of Kootenay by F. W. Pettit received  the eudorsation of thc association, so that  it could be used by the C.P.R. in its  printed literature.  Mr. Gibbs said the Victoria Chemical  Works would send their expert ou fertilizers to Nelsou to deliver a free lecture ou  the use of fertilizers if the association  would allow tlie lecture to be delivered  under its auspices. Mr. Busk said that  he had given the' fertilizers of the company a trial, and he was of opinion that  they wero of good quality and gave good  results. It was agreed to allow the lecture to be delivored under the auspices of  the association.  Dr. Hall moved that the celebration of  Dominion Day iu Nelsou be merged with  the exhibition of the association, so that  the exhibition would bo the greater success through the use of the money so  freely subscribed by the people for the  Dominion Day celebration.  The motiou ��� was opposed by Messrs.  Malone, Irving, Dover, and others, and  on its being put by the chairman, was  voted down, four voting in favor.  Mr. Ford, in a short speech, called the  attention of tho members, to tho quality  and price of the fruit trees delivered from  Ontario nurseries. He said tlie trees were  stock that could not bo sold iu the East,  [Continue- on Fourth I'ugo.]  Silver-Lead Mine-Owners Handicapped  Through Lack of Capital���Dr. Hendryx  Invents a Process for Treating Low-  Grade Gold and Silver Ores*  A week ago the Nelson Daily News placed itself on record by  saying, the smelters and railw^s were retarding the mining in-  dusty of Kootenay by their exorbitant charges for smelting and  transportation.    This statement of the Daily News was no more  true than were most of its political statements during the cam-"  paign that closed on October 3rd.    The  freight  and treatment   *  rate on silver-lead  ore  is $15 a ton, which is a low rate.    It is'  not only a low< rate to the mine-owners, but it is so low a rate  that  th-e 1 smelters are not making money in operating their  plants.    The Hall1 Mines smelter at Nelsbn employs 150 men',  at the smelter when both furnaces are in  operation.    For the.- ,*  year ending June 30th, 1903, the operations of the smelter r��- '  suited in a loss after making reasonable deductions for depreci-*'"'  ation of plant.    Surely   the   owners of  smelting   works   are"'  fairly  entitled to0 a  return on their capital.    The Hall Mines   ;  smelter at Nelson represents an outlay of $250,000, and it is one  '������'���..'..���������.'. t r  of the industrial  enterprises that helps keep things moving at  Nelson.    Then why shouldn't its owners get a return on their ,  money? ' /  There are two sides to all questions, and there are two sides   .  to the question of working the silver-lead mines of Kootenay at..'  a profit.    Were the mines owned  by  men  or companies .with;'/v|  sufficient capital to work them  without  "gutting", them,' lessv,^  would be heard of the excessive charges of smelters and rail-iSfi  ways.

Then  there are mines that are' ���  ..<)'���'��������� :���:������������:������  not "gutted," but are stopped  by litigation from working as  shippers.    Then,-again, there are mines that may be sold at no   ;-  ***j      ,      4*-  distant date to the American  Smelter Trust. -So, these thre,e,  -  conditions have more to do with the present inactivity in silver-.*,  lead mining than the charges for smelting and  transportation..  Dr. Hendryx, principal owner in the Last Chance mine near  Sandon, was at the Strathcona this week, accompanied by Mrs.  Hendryx.    The doctor, although his home is in Southern California, looks on Kootenay much as  a  man does on a township  in which he once owned a good farm.    He was in Kootenay in  ,the-_.days^when-^the===Blue^-Bell=miue,^opposite=Ains-W-orth,=_vas=  Kootenay's greatest showing for a mine.    He was manager of,  the property, and the money he spent in those days went a* lon_;  way towards keeping things moving.    Dr. Hendryx was feeing  fairly good when in Nelson over two or three things.    One-was:-  that a  nice  streak of high-grade galena had been struck in a  drift in No. 6 tunnel of the Last Chance mine, and ano^er was  that his process for treating low-grade gold and silve^res was  proving a success.    In a general conversation on th' workings  of the process, Dr. Hendryx said: /  item of expense.   I b(*Ae that in many  cases it will be possitf to treat the ores  aud pay a royalty of" ��ents  total cost of *1.50 non:  "Not only does the process cut down  costs, but from tests already made, it is  possible to treat ores in from three to eight  hoars, that require as many days by tlie  old process. R. K. Neill of the Kendall  mine in Montana, has beeu making tests  of my system, and is considering the installation of the process there. The tests  have shown the recovery of 90 to 91 per  cent of the gold iu Republic ores, aud  from 00 to 80 per ceut of the gold aud  silver. These are minimum savings.  When the treatment is perfected, there  should bo still better recoveries. The  process is especially adapted to silver  ores."  Oue of its most important factors is the  speed of the process. Dr. Hendryx, at  the trials of his little plant erected in Spo-  kaue, has recovered values in from three  to eight hours where formerly it took  three to eight days of leaching. That  speed is of immense importance.

Address all communications���  THE TRIBUNE, Nelson. B.C.  SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER 7,  1903  Tlie action taken by the people of Nelson,   in  public  meeting  assembled,   on  Thursday night of last week, is not to the  liking of either tbe Victoria Times (Liberal) or to thc Victoria Colonist (Liberal-  Conservative), ana is condemned by such  'recoghized   exponents  of   constitutional  government and parliamentary proceedure as S. S. Taylor, K.C, and W. A.  "Macdonald, K.C., and F. J. .Deaue.   On  - the other hand, the action; taken by the  people of Nelson is endorsed by the To-  Ji-onto Mail and Empire, the recognized  newspaper organ of the Liberal-Conservative party in Canada, and' approved of by  Joseph  Martin, K.C, yvvho. is' admitted  even by his politic al opponents to be the  ablest parliamentarian iii'Canada.   The  I" Victoria  Times commenced four weeks  ago by stating a falsehood, and since then  has argued from that'false statement as a  premise.   This proves that the Victoria;  Times is not "a jurist of repute," to use a'  phrase of tho Alaskan boundary dispute. ���  The Victoria Colonist has stated the facts,  and lias done so ou more than' one occasion; but the exigencies of the political,  party which the   Colonist   supports demands that the Colonist  shall  stpltify  itself,   and  the  Colonist wriggles   and  squirms, but finally does the act���all to  save tho McBride government.   No one  who knows   them  will pay  any  great  'amount of heed to the utterances or opinions of either Mr. Taylor or Mr. Macdonald or, Mr.   Deane.   All three are politicians, who for tlie moment are float-  11 ing on the surface, of the political sea in  this province.   All three are mere parti-  'sans' of the political party to which for  the time they happen to belong.  That the  representative of'the Crown can do ho  J���wrong��� is���vorl>a_,-=b__hv=If���hencan^do  no wrong, why did men who are now advisers of sir Henri Joly use force in Vancouver, in June, 1900, to cotapel James.  Diiusnmir, premier of the province,  to  sign a document denouncing the then lieutenant-governor aud demaudiug that he  bo removed from oflico?   If tlie subject  has no constitutional right to address tho  representative, of tlio Crown, why did sir  i feiiri Joly no later than hist May promptly.act on advice received by him by letter  from Smith Curtis, a private member of  the legislative assembly?   If an "unfortunate inc:idont" debars one member of the  legislature from high olliee, why should  not," "unfortunate   incidents"   bur other  members from holding high odlces?   The  "linfprtuniite incident" which  debarred  John Houston of Nelson from high oflice.  was no -more   glaring a  breach   of   the  privileges'bf'tlio house, or a greater insult  to'.the^dighity of the speaker, than the.  "uufoi*tu|iate-incident" of the same session, in which, captain Tatlow of Vuucou  vo-'(whqm sir Plenri Joly has as an adviser .today)   called   the   then   premier,  James .Dunsmuir, a boodlor and a plunderer of the. people, and who in turn was;  denounced as a liar.   The representative  of the Crown, sir Henri Joly, overlooked  that  "unfortunate, incident" when premier McBride meekly led captain Tatldw  of 'Vancouver before him for approval as  a cabinet minister.    There was- another  "unfortunate incident" during the same  session   which "probably   has  not been������  brought to sir Henri Joly'S attention by.  the society'leaders -vyho take part in the  social7 functions at.Qpvermi-ent "Hojise. ���'.  The -i'unfortunate ..incident" was one in  whicli two members of the' present gov-"  ei-iiliie'nt   took .'part.   The. ''unfortunate  incident" occii'ired. when.. Albert. Eflward,  McPhillips apdltichardMcBride.'attempt-;  ed by force of arms to take from'ffesepli  Martin his seat in tho assembly chamber.  Thoy wore aided openly by that great reformer, Smith Curtis, who attempted by  bruto force to strangle Mr. Martin. Sir  Henri Joly did not lecture Mi*. McBride,  as it should havo been his "painful duty"  to do, when he sent for him to form a  go\ eminent, after having summarily dismissed premier Prior on the advice of  Smith Curtis; or did he caution Albert  Edward McPhillips, that apostle of good  form, to behave himself in future Avhen  McBride made him his attorney-general.  High officials, like sh' Henri Joly and his  present advisers, should be consistent, and  they should uot prate about prerogatives  of the Crown, constitutional government,  responsibility of ministers, and morality,  for were the mantle that now covers them  to be drawn aside, what inconsistency and  irresponsibility and moral depravity would  be disclosed! No invidious distinctions  should be made by the king'"between the  sinners and the sinner, and the people of  Nelson in protesting against the action of  the king's representative in British Columbia and deploring the want of. manliness in that representative's chief adviser  shows that they are hot mere partisan  time-servers.      .  ���'.. The Liberal-Conservative Club of Vancouver had a love feast on its first anniversary.   The feast was attended by Hon.  captain   Tatlow,  M.P.P., 'Hon'.   Charles  Wilson,  M.P.P.,  J.  F. Garden, M.P.P.,  A. H. B. Macgowan, M.P.P., and W. J.  Bowser, M.P.P., five M.P.Ps. who like to  be  called  the   "SOLID   FIVE."     The  "solid five" in their speeches congratulated the Club, on the result of the last  election-in ���Vancouver, for, as one of the  . 'solid five'' indiscretly said, "Vancouver  is now in a position to make any demand  it pleased on' the' government,;and McBride, like a coon, up a tree, would have  to  come   down."   Bowser, ���one  of  the  "solid five," is reported  as  having  demanded from McBride the attorney-generalship.    Hon.   Charles  Wilson,' it   is  claimed, is disgruntled because he is not  made attorney-general at once.   Hon. captain Tatlow, seeing that he is the "it" in'  McBride's government, does not want any  more "its" from Vancouver in the government.   Mr. Macgowan is satisfied because he is an M.P.P. after breaking "the  slate" of  the  Tatlow-Bowser machine.  ^Ex-mayor'Gardeirispatientlywaiting'his"  time, believing that all things cOme to  to the man who has tho patience to wait.  F. Carter-Cotton, M.P.P., was not present.   He  lives  in  Vancouver, but was  forced by the machine to run iu an outside riding for a seat.   Cotton is by long  odds the ablest M.P.P.  Vancouver has.  He has brains;   probably more than all  tho "solid five" put together.   But it is  argued that Cotton  had Ids chance, nnd  while ho was an exceptionally good head  of a department, he was as weak as McBride i.s as a resourceful loader,    After  congratulating the club on its living for a  year, the "solid fivo" talked on the "Alaskan  Boundary Award" and "The Traditions of tho Liberal-ConRorvativo Party."  Over in Victoria, tliere was another love  feast.   It wa.s given by the Young Liberal-  Conservative Association.    The one object  of this love feast was apparently to counteract the effect of the publio meetiug  held at Nelson, and resolutions of confidence in the McBride government were  passed  with   hurrahs   for McBride and  Albert Edward McPhillips, tho attorney-  general   without   a   seat.    McBride and  Green   and Goodeve ��� (another   minister  without a seat) timed their arrival at the  love feast,' so as to bo the observed of observers.   Harry Helmcken,   the people's  Harry, observed them, and shouted "The  kings!   Long live the kings!"   What are  the   people   saying?    Are   they saying:  " John Houston, you havo had a rough  " and dirty deal, but don't throw up the  " sponge.    Stay with your party as its  " president and by Nelson as its represen-  " tative, and the tide will yet conic, your  " way.     Unfaithfulness   and   .treachery  " will get the reward so richly deserved."  Or are they saying:   "John Houston may  " be a blackguard, as ninny say he is; wo  " don't know him ipersonally, and can't  "shy; but his record iu'public mattors,  " with which alone we are concerned,  " shows him to be a strong mau and an  " honest man, and that sort of man is  " badly needed in B.C." Or, are they  saying: "This province would have es-  " caped much unpleasant notoriety if  " those who know what is right had had  " the courage of their convictions, and  " blots which are a scandal in our politi-  " cal, social, and moral life would have  " been avoided. May the turning down  " of John Houston of Nelson be the begin-  '��� ning cf better days, and may we follow  " the example sot us by the representative  "of the crown in this province." But,  after all is said, tho people of British Columbia, and uot the representative of the  crown in the person of sir Henri Joly, will  have the last say in this matter, as in all  matters that concern them, and they cau  be trusted to do what is right, sooner or  later. Thc man who disgraces himself  will not remain long in public office, no  more will the public man who refuses to  obey the will of the people. And it can  also be said, that the people havo no confidence in tho political trickster, the official incapable, the social backbiter and  slanderer, or governments guided solely  by bed-chamber gossip, and when the opportunity is given them, they will turn  down all such men, no matter what may  be their station in life.  Two of the results of former adjustments of boundary disputes between Canada, and the United States aro to be found  on maps that.show "Point Roberts,"  which is the tip end of a point of the mainland of British" Columbia that juts into  the straits of Georgia below New Westminster, and an unnamed piece of land on  the west side of the Lake of the Wooods,  a short distance southeast of Rat Portage,  Ontario. Both these small pieces of, land  are wholly disconnected . from any territory of the United States, and can only be  reached from the United States by water  or through Canadian territory. Had the  Canadian contention prevailed before the  Alaskan Boundary Commission, a dozen  or inore points of land like "Point Roberts" would be scattered along the coast  of Britisli Columbia northwards from  Portland canal. Common sense was  against the Canadian contention, and notwithstanding all assertions to the contrary, common sense marks the decisions  of the men who have the right to sit in  in the privy council, which is the supreme court of Great Britain. For daring to make such a statement, The Triune will be denounced as anti-Canadian  aud pro-English. Had The Tribune the  power, Canada would be a. NATION, independent. ��� ���'- ��� ������'    '��� "������   ���  W. C. Nichol, who for a time was a  great editor of a Kaslo paper, but who of  ���late lias had his name at the head of the  hog wash editorials appearing in the Vancouver Province, the most unreliable newspaper on the Pacific Coast, says "lieuten-  " ant-governor Joly perceived the evil ef-  " feists upon the country of Mr. Houston's  " success and blocked it." When Nichol  penned the above he was evidently attempting to recover from one of his oft-  recurring sprees.  , A. E. Haggen of the Revelstoko Mail  who failed in his attempt to "do"  Tom Taylor out of the Liberal-Conservative election . for Revelstoke riding,  ���writes knowingly, of the "unfortunate  incident" that debarred the member for  Nelson City from the job of administering a department of the provincial government. In attempting to get a cinch  on government advertising, Haggen is  willing to write himself down  a lick-  SP_t_!_____ .-   '_.. -L ,  ��� Dr. Wade of Kamloops, who edits the  Kamloops Sentinel and writes the scissored editorials that appear in tho Nelsou  Daily News, was a Liboral-Conservative  until the pangs of hunger drove him to  forsake his life-long political principles.  Ho is now doing his best to provo the old  saying, "Turncoats can always bo depended oh. to do tho dirty-work; of the;  porky that feeds them."  Duncan Ross of Greenwood, tho Liberal organizer iu southeastern British Columbia, who before the election claimed  his party would carry ten of tho twelve  scats in his organization district, says the  member for Nelson City has more lung  power than brains. Well, it is a satisfaction for a politician to be able to claim  something���even lung power. Ross has  neither lung power not brains.  The Spokane Spokesman-Review, which  is one of the best newspapers, from tho  news point of view, on the Pacific Coast,  is laboring to provo that labor unions have  not been a factor in raising wages. The  Review might explain what the factor  was that recently caused its publishers to  sign aii increased scale of wages for the  printers employed in its composing-room.'  One way to strengthen a political party  is to heap odium' on the heads of men who'  lead the rank and file in battle. That is  the McBride -Tatlo.w -Wilson - Green - McPhillips way. Another way is to be loyal  to the party by ousting from its leadership men who are incapable and treacherous.  Timothy Hay  First-class Timothy Hay, baled, per ton   <ljf A  f.o b.

The tramway and air pipe of the Oyster-Criterion run over the prop-rty,  and the Eva tramway cuts across one corner.

Another   Good   Property  No. 3. The Imperial, Balfour and Rossland claims, lying on Lexington'  mountain, immediately between three working mines, Ihn Kva. the Cholla, the  Oyster-Criterion.

'  The large amount of development work done both on the Eva and Oyster-  Criterion had proved that, the rich gold values on this mountain continue and  even improve with depth. At the 700-foot level on the Eva. close to the line  of this group, some of the richest op; on the mountain has beet* struck. The  workings of both of these well known mines'are close to the property of the  Great Northern. The main ledges on the property.run into tho Oyster-Criterion  ground.

Though enough has been said in the foregoing to satisfy even the  most sceptical, there is still better to follow.  Words,fail to describe the phenomenal  richness of the  "Swede"   group.  Briefly, however, it may be stated, that it consists of two full claims, the  Goldsmith and Gold Hill, being a continuation' of the Lucky" Jack and lying  higher up on the mountain, thus furnishing better tunnelling sites and enabling the ledges to be mined to a depth of nearly-2000 feet, without sinking.  There are, as far as known to date, nearly a dozen ledges on the claims;,  carrying from an ounce to over a hundred thousand dollars per ton in free gold  and besides this, there are rich deposits of galena and telluride on the claims, as  .indicated by the following certificate given by Mr. J.
