The Gold Field-of British Columbia  Alining Company own many other prop-  ,1'flies' in the North Pork camp upon  which work will lie shoitlv commenced.

' '  Mr. Kaake,  of the  firm of Kaake /ci  Williams, left for the Springs Tuesday,  where he has the contract for impibve-  iiionls  on hotel.     Their  branch  store-  hereis nearly completed.  The  first shipment ol  ore from the <  gold find fin  Gainer, Greek   was  made '  this week to the Kaslo sampling works.  The   returns   from   the   shipment are  awaited with interest. '  " Tho lumber for the steamboat is  nearly cut and will be allowed to season a short time befoie building is commenced. (  Oie hauling from the Silver Cup has  commenced.  The miners at the Broadview struck  and work is at a stand-still. There hiw  .been more or less friction since wages '  were cut in July. ' It is said that McGinn1 has resigned and that McNeil  will have charge in future. '  Illecillewaet Items.-  Dave Wolsely has six men at work  ou .the Donald claim. They expect  soon to make a strike.. ���������'*  Ban Green is still working the."No.  2 tunnel on the lilue Bell near .Albeit  Canyon. ���������  Sandy MeHae, one of  the strongest  and heartiest of men, is reported,to be   ���������  in a very low   condition   at   his   home  here with typhoid.

Coming to the-Front.  k The steamer Lytton went down river  Thursday morning having' made three  round-trips to La Porte-inside of five  days and > a-half. , Leaving Saturday  last she returned on Sunday. She. went  north again Monday, got back next day,  and on her last tiip left 'Wednesday  morning and got back noon Thursday.  The river was,-it a very favorable stage,  and was taken /full advantage of by  Capt. Gore who was in- charge of the  steamei. lie says tho river is not,, at  all bail and expects to-see -some ^uiove  made lo handle any trade that may develop.  This easy navigation of the Columbia above Hovelstoke is the most satisfactory event, lhat has' happened for  Big Bend in many year.-, and leads every one interested to hope that it will  soon be the camp most, talked about.  This il has an opportunity of being  wilh its great'ore bodies and gravel  banks rich in gold.  ��������� It is an e\traoidinary thing that  the Kootenay papers cannot leportihe <  tniiiisleis' winds as lhe ministers want  them tepnrled. Mr. Martin, in a  .moment uf weakness, unbosomed himself to a Nelson repot tor and stibse-  quei'tly took it all back. Col. Baker,  .it Hevolsloke and at Nelson, met and  talked freely wilh the same nbiiptitous  individual, and with the same lesult.  It i.s;app.irciit that there is something  unreliable in Kootenay���������- when cabinet  iniuihleis are theie. Kootenay reporters may solnel imes err, but then  mistakes aie generally the fault of the  poisons interviewed. They never deliberately   .   misrepresent. ������������������ Victoria  '/ f *  / ���������liii'is,  He Went Part of the Way.

TufZ Cofotiist says it has ahead}'defended tlie action of the Turner govern-
-,'     /nent   in   the   river, bank   matter   at
Jievelsloke on grounds that have never
been 'impeached.    The   action   of   the
government lias been inaction ami this
is  what   the   Colonist   defends'.     Yet,
.lion. Colonel linker saws, "Jt ought to
,        ibe   done,   and     wheie,   there's   a   will
there's a way."     Is there not a contr.n-
* .
.diction here,?    If the Colonist defends
jthe policy of doing   nothing will it cx-
, plain Col. J Ulcer's statement. Tt seems'
'fto us ns if the Provincial ("secretary
himself impeached the inaction of his
People of Revelstoke can  come only
to,the conclusion   that   they are being
' trifled with, in this matter. When
.ministers are interviewed here they
.say the situation is grave and something should  Jje   done.     Yet,  nothing
,    follows.      Why   do r they    raise    false
hopes if   they do   not  intend   to   deal
��� Avith the matter.
In the f,ice"of such a pass as things
have come to in Revelstoke, tiirough
the unwillingness' of the ��� government
.to protect property, they must not be
surprised���should nothing be done in
jtlie meantime���if their policy be. iin
peached at the next opportunity given
to Revelstoke electors. "Where, there's
a will there's ,a way," would   be a suit-
, aide rallying cry.        '
Why will not' the MWf/'get things
straight. The contradiction from lion.
Col. JJaker of something he, said here
is so'very unlike vyhat happened that
" jt. leads one to imagine the W'uihl
purposely'mixes the moaning so as lo
avoid aiguinent. This may be wise,
hut how cowaullv.
On the Way to Klondyke.
Andrew Wasson, banker and ex-
collector of customs, who left Pint
Townsend with a paity of seven for
Klondyke, has ivritlen his wife from
Skngavv.ny as follows: '���There are
about :i,000 men and l."> horses here,-
making up t he most forlorn lot I evei
saw. About half of tlioni have given
up, and the other half either curse or
cry. Altogether, I never 'saw sueh a
condition of a Hairs. At Dye.-i thine
are neai ly as niany as here and all, !
am told, are in lhe same < ondition.'
Ood only knows what will' become of
those headed' this way. None but
those who have horses' get through. I
do not believe one in a bundled will
ever get through. '.Many have started
out, but just, as many have leturned
foot-sore and disheartened."
The Willamette, which ai lived in
Sea tl le last week brought back several
disheartened Klondykeis. The officers
of the ship report there were l,.;(i() persons camped on the beach when they
left Hlfagaway, and there are now
7,000. No one has yet, thev siy, ifol,
over 1 he trail: Pick' horses are dying
from hai dships. ,

Is tho Turk in Peril ?
If the .statement.--of pi e-muilily well-
inspired politicians in England are to
, 1-e liclieved. the expulsion of 1 he Turks
fiom I'iiirope will lie witnessed in (he
expirniir yeai.s of the nineteenth een-
tiny. Jt is well known that the Suit.in
owes his letenlioii of ('oii.slaiiliiiopl.-
duriiifr; I he last'one bundled and fifty
ye.u s t-olely to the mill mil jealousies of
Austria and llnssia. Up to the fiii-,1
ipiarterof the ei<j"hteenl Ii cent my the
IJoum' of Hapshiiig- had been looked
upon in central and western Kuiope a--*
( ho t rue heir of I he Sultan's dominions-,
'hut since then lius.sia has s-oeuieil more
likely to secure I he inherit.UK-e, and on
three occasions would ha vo done so hut
for the jealousy with which the Vienna Government beheld the proxies.-, of
the CV.ar toward ascendency in " the
Jf5alk.-ui peninsula.
Now, however, it is said that lhe
/ Czar's advisers, occupied wit h the ad-
wuire olf Riissi.-t'.s inleiesls in the lar
Kast and China, andcin the South in
AI'gli.'iiiiMiUi, have entered^ into a dis-
linct iiii(ler.s|aiidimr with' the,Vienna
Government, for the partition of Turkey. A pro'loxt IVu iii'1 simultaneous
advance oi Austrian and litissi.-iu nrm-
ies will, soon or late, be olVored through
' the ini.scouduct, of Turkish ol'lici.ils or
soldiers in .Macedonia and Albania;
and nil hough the (Jsm.-mlie would light,
with desperation, they i ould not, if unaided, long wil hstand 1 im joint foices
of two great, kind powers.
This lime* iu is unlikely I lint. Jingland
would interfere, provided I hut, hor occupation of I'flgypt. he henceforl ll un-
challemred. There is a strong fooling
in lingl.ind thai the,, pi e.sence of'the
Tiuk m I��iiropc .slioiihl "no longer he
pel mil I "d and 1 his feci ing is shaied in
Germany, although it, is at pieseilt the'
.whim of the ICaisei lo pose as lhe Hul-
tan'.s pi olecLor. Fi auce and Italy would
h.-U'dly object to any sciieiue of Russia's
and finis the Turk would find^ himself
helpless, .save fiom his own undoubted
coinage and endurance. This mean*
that, th'1' expulsion of, the Tin k from
Europe would he merely a question of
I hue. His presence I here is an anomaly in t liesil" day's of civilization and pro-
gres-, and his elimination would lie not
only a triumph of Christ i;init.v but the
removal of a perpetual menace lo'the
peace of Europe. ,
