' And stiU_ the  Government make no sign.  Hon. G. 13. Martin,' Chief Coiumis-  .sioner of Lands and Works in lhe  Turner- ministry arrived I his . morning  from Kamloops He informed a  Mail representative that his trip hud  no special significance. He yv.-is anxious  to see for himself the needs of the  country in roads, streets, bridges and  other matters dealing with Ins depiirt-  jiient. He thought he could h.-lter  understand these things by studying  them himself and meeting the"people  concerned. ' (  Questioned   about   (he    liver   hank  matter he, said he always thought that,  co-operation betYveen   the two government*; was understood and, on liea ii g  what Mr. Tinner's   vieYvs Yvi-re, sJ.-iicl he  fancied the Piemier must ha ve thought  that   the   understanding  had 'lapsed.  , lie    further   stated    that    before    he  left, Victoria  coiiiinuuicaLioiis  were in  progress   on     the     matter     hot ween  Victoria and Ottawa.    lie promised lo  look at lhe bank himself.

Asked  as to Iioyv  loiig  he   YYould   remain,   he  replied  that  he   yyoiiIi!  go  south   this  afternoon.  lion. Mr. Martin's statements as to  his understanding on the river bank  matter, bears out (he idea that the  Dominion Government considered  Lhere yy'.ms such an agreement and that  it made its grant on that hnsis ,,(l(ls  further'proof.

The207th anniversary of the battle  of the Boyne���������a day sacred to every  Orangeman���������was celebrated here on  Monday in most becoming maimer by  Revelstoke lodge No. 103S and visi'.ing  brethren. Remembering that "one  man esteeinel h one day a hove another."  and that no man should "judge you in  respect of an holy day,"' people of all  denominations���������wiLh the great, broad  spirit of tolerance so characteristic ot<  the West���������assisted by Lheir presence  and help ,(o 'make the clay (he great  success it'Yvas. Not one unpleasant incident occurred to mar it. "  i  The proceedings really commenced  Sunday, when Rev. C. A. Procunier, of  Kaslo, preached to a large audience al.  the open-air-service. The local lodife,  accompanied by the Revelstoke brass  band, attended in regalia.  On Monday, lodge session opened at  7.30 a.m., and on arrival of train from  the west the members, headed by the  baiid, lnaiched to (he station to welcome the visiting brether n. Salmon  Arm lodge turned . out to a man (and  ton woman too, as many of the fair sex  arrived with the delegation), and  Ill-ought with it its fifes and drums.  Considerable disappointment yv.-is fell,  at the non-arrival of Lhe Kamloops  brethren, their* absence being accounted for by the fact, that "the* Inland  Capital���������so called���������could not get thc 10  excurtionists necessaiy to take advantage, of the Ioyv $o rate offered by Lhe  railYY'ay.  At'lO.'i.in. th������ pa rude passed through  the streets and presented an' imposing  appearance.    Jack   Shaw,   personating  King Willi-im III., led the Yvay.atLired  ���������in d.r/.zling  costume  and   mounted on'  his steed   of   Yvhile, Yvith   sword  in hi������  hand   "pointing  to    victory,  and   wilh  "pride in his port- and defiance in 'his  eye," he made ah excellent representation of the king of, immortal   memory.  Following   him    cairier(he   Revelstoke  band   playing    orange rt an s   such ' as  Boyne   Water,   Orange   Feather1,   and  Rise Sons of William Rise.   Then came  tlie splendid"banner  of  the local lodge  folloived by the   members  of  No. JG.-5S.  Next came Salmon Arm  fife and drum  band  and   then   the   members  of that,  lodgf'with'a big British  ensign in the  rear.  After lunch the Orangemen and  many others atlended at the booth on  the baseball grounds and listened to  speeches from Revs. Pi ociinier, G'lass-  nd Muir.    This  oyci-, (he pr-oces-  on all sides (hat those interests comprise some of the most valuable prop?  eiiies yet discovered in the province.  I have reason to believe that Yviih  proper management^ some, of those  pioperties' may be converted into  mines Yvhich will rank .-Is' the largest  piodtiecrs of high grade ore. in' the  country. 'It is my intention during  the next feYv Yveeks' to , denote , the  whole, of my time to the. development  of these, properties.  "Mr.   Ross,   the.    Yvell-lcnoYvn    contractor of Toronto, together' with   ,111V  company's engineers are iioyv surveying  and preparing estimates for a  waggon  road which YvilHie. some   25   miles' in  length.     The largest amount   of   labor  will i>o utilized for the spoe'dy building  of (his, road and I anticipate it, will  be  completed by  the   end ' of   September,  and that by   Christinas   yvp   can   ship  about 11 thousand  tons   of   ore.     It. ,is  my belief that, this ore will average  at.  least  .-?100   a   Ion.    *    *    *    There  are many  other  important   operations  which lniY-e to be  carried 'out   iii  'and  around    Albert   Canyon,    but    it     is  premature, for me   to   mention   them."  As soon as be ge's things i'11 ' shape,   at,  the Canyon he says he will devote   his  attention to the-numerous coast properties of the company fur a  time Yvben  he will return to Rossland in thg hope  of being able at that time to pick up a  feiv properties on satisfactory terms.

J For some time past the affairs of the  Orphan Boy Co.' have been in many  mouths the subject of conversation,  and the theme of much presscomnient.  ���������Recently, too, an influential deputation  wailed on the Provincial Governnient  asking for an inquiry into its affairs.  These arrests would, therefore, make  it appe.-u that, the' Crown had now  made up its mind to probe the matter  in the nature of a criminal prosecution.

Blair Can cells an Agreement with C.P.R.  .Hon. A.  G. Blair,   minister of   ruil-  %vay--, h.cs e;iY-en notice  to  the  C.P.R.  that lhe agreement   betYY'een   the c-iiiii-  pany and   '.he  Dominion  fjovornriifut  for* the running <if   irain.s  over*  the Intercolonial   betYY-eeu    Halifax  and  St.  John   will   be  cancelled   at  the end of'  one year from the   present   time.    Th.*'  Minister, of  Railways is of the opinion  that the present agreement, Yvhich y\-.-i.s  made S yea is iigo,   unduly0 fa y-oi-.s  (he  C.P.R. and its coiitiniieiice   would be a  , .serious detriment  to the   f;ovei*nnieiil  road.    Under it the C.P.R. train   from  and to Montreal   yy-.-is   hauled   oY-erthe'  Intercolonial   by  an   Intercolonial   engine and train crew.    For-this   the   Inter-colonial paid to (he C.P.R. car mileage or rent aggregating about   .$ir>,(H)0  annually.    Ofcoui.se, the Intercolonial  got. tht' benefit of all   local   tr.iflic.    A  pari nf the agreement- enjoined  strict  neutrality on the pai I. of   both' the  C.  P.    R.   and   Intercolonial    agents    as  regards business for compel ing points.  What the result of lhe lerininatio.i   of  t he agi ecnient YY-ill be  cannot   iioyy'  be  stated.

It.  may  be that the t\Y-o lines will fail to agree.  ���������Should this happen,   the  C.P.R.   will  devote' their  energies  Hi' making  Si.
