The country which it traverses is, as A
rule, mineralized, and the opening up
of new mining camps will doubtless
follow in due course.

SATURDAY, OCT. 17, 189(1.
Province: With the prospect of a
general election next spring, what
steps are being taken to organize the
new party which is to take the place
of the present Government in the administration of the affairs of this province?
It is generally admitted that there
must be a change; that new men and
new methods are required. Who are
the new men and what are thn new
methods ? It is time organization was
commenced. In a recent issue we advocated a clean sweep. Our remarks
have been variously commented upon
and the idea generally approved, though
the ''Columbian" thinks we were too
severe upon the Opposition.
We condemned the Opposition "as
such," not the individual members
thereof, some of whom have proved
good men and true, whose services
will be reqnired. The past record of
the Opposition does not recommend
itself to us in any way. and we think
we are justified in saying that the
people of British Columbia are not
anxious to entrust tbe government of
this province to that party as at present constituted. We know that many
wbo are disgusted with the Turner
administration have 110 confidence
whatever in the capacity of the Opposition to mend matters. Tbis being
the case, the best course to pursue is
to at once organize a new party and
adopt a platform iu accordance with
the necessities of the situation.
Let this be done and let the campaign
be opened without further loss of time.
It may be that the Government will
survive the coming session, in that
event there will be the bettor opportunity for making success doubly sure
in '9H, but we incline to the opinion,
and with good reasons, that not later
than June next will the people be
callel upon to elect a new Parliament.
We think it will tie wisest to assume
that the appeal to tne country will be
made next spring and, consequently,
that prompt action is in order.
There is no need to beat about the
bush iu this matter. Plain speaking
can do no harm. Tbe whole province
is crying out against the present Government. Every independent paper in
British Columbia advocates a chunge.
Mr. Turner nnd his colleagues know
that they are thoroughly discredited,
and that the people sre anxiously
awaiting an opportunity to give tliein
practical evidence to this effect by
their votes. It is equally apparent
that the people lnfve very little respect
for the present Opposition, and no desire to entrust them with the reins of
This state of affairs must be recognized and acted upon. If we are 10
secure good government we must see
to it that we have the men and the
platform that are best calculated to
give us what we want. The men are
not lacking, aud the platform can be
constructed without
start must be made.
The Province would suggest the advisability of a provincial convention,
to bo held forthwith-- say, ut Vaiicou
to bear   the full responsibility of  the
ailair. He was paid (5,000 bv Pacaud,
�� liich   he used for political purposes.
Ho ut tlie time told Pacaud the money
would   be  used   in   the Conservative
interest.     Mr.   Tarte  objected to the
whole  article   in Libre Parole, where
he was charged with having practised
blackmail  and  extortion.     He  had
never done anything in the Conservative** party of  which be was ashamed.
He had never been dishonest, nor had
be betrayed his former friends.   When
he came  to Montreal   he lived largely
on his parliamentary allowance.   This
being   insufficient   for  his family, he
realized on his insurance policies, and
Madame Tarte and his daughters, who
had some slight savings, .consented to
part with them aud lived very modestly.     The allusion  made in the article
to his   family, he deemed an outrage
The insinuation was made that he had
lived   by    dishonest    means.     Mr.
-haughnessy, of  the C.P.R. had long
been a close friend of the witness, and
on hearing of  his  financial ruin rendered  him   assistance.     The witness
refused to accept the gift, but nsked if
he would advance (3,000 to his sons,
they to pay him back in printing. The
C.PR.   nd.anced  (3,000,   and   that
amount his sons had been paying back
as  best they could in printing      Thi
amount  of  Courville  cheque, whicl
was his property, was used to buy the
title  of  Cultivateur, and part of Mr.

grade especially in copper
The* Imperial company has eight
miners at woi k on the Lookout mountain property. They are running a

the number as work progresses.
General Turner paid a portion of the

There is one medicino which every
family should be provided with. ' We
refer to Chamberlain's Pain Balm.
When it is kept at hand the severe
pain of a burn or scald may be promptly relieved and the sore healed in much
less time than when medicine has to
be sent for. A sprain may be promptly treated before iuliainniatiou sets in,
which insures a cure in about one-
third the time otherwise required.
Cuts and bruises should receive imme
iliate attention,beforo the parts become
swollen, nud when Chamberlain's Pain
Balm is Applied it will heal them with
out matter being formed, snd without
leaving scar. A sore throat may be
cured iu oue night. A piece of flannel
dampened with this liniment and
bound on over the seat of pain, will
cure lame back or pain in the side or
chest in twenty-four houis. It i* the
most valuable, however, for rheumatism. Persons afflicted with this disease will be delighted with the prompt
relief from pain which it affords, and
it can be depended upon to effect
a complete cure. For sale by

A  meeting  of the curling club wns
held in the Columbia   House, Tuesday
evening last, President Woodley in the

The officers of the club were named
an Executive Committee.
A general discussion took place as to
the Wntihg of the rink for the season.
It was decided to leave the matter over
till the next meeting. The meeting
then adjourned.
The next meeting of the club will be
held on Tuesday evening next in the
Columbia House at 8 o'clock, when
the following important business will
lie discussed:
Arranging terms with syndicate.
Fixing the membership fee.
Election of skips.
It is important thit those who intend to join the i.lub inform the secretary at once and be present at the next
meeting as practically nothing can be
done until a fair idea is obtained as lo
strength of the club. There is everv
reasou to believe that there will be two
or three good trophies for competition
this season ih addition to last year's
list and everything points to a most
successful winter's sport.
The syndicate are having ell neces-
' -sary repairs made to Ihe rink, and in
the way of improvements will have
ventilators put in and will cover the
bottom of the rink with sawdust in
order to hnve a good foundation on
which to build up the ice. It has also
bean suggested that large reflectors be
made for the lamps in order to have
better light.
At the quarterly meeting of the Victoria Board of Trade, held last evening, it was moved : "That iu view of

Torkev. That had been England's
traditional policy, he said, And any
deParture from it would meet with
active resistance by the Powers. At
the same time absolute inaction was
more dangerous to the peace of Europe
than would be united interference by
the Powers to compel Turkish reform,
