Our esteemed contemporary, in its  excess of z"*al for the Liberal party, is  bound to have it that the present, provincial cabinet must be labelled Conservative forthwith, in order that  Mr. Laurier may reap all the additional kudos which there is to be reaped  from their approaching downwall.  Mr. Turner no doubt is a Conserva  tive, but if that makes it imperative to  label the present provincial government Conservative, what are we going  to dub the provincial opposition ?  Some of their best men are Conservative too. The Herald, for that  matter, is opposed to Mr. Turner's  government in provincial politics, but  that does not make it a Grit organ. If  we are to have Dominion politics Introduced into provincial affairs, wejll  and good. But our Liberal friends  want too'sure a thing altogether, when  they ask to begin by calling a ministry  which is doomeel to defeat, Conservative, in order that they may claim  another glorious victory for Liberalism on the head of the next.provincial  elections. The crying need of this  province is a clean and capable administration, and no person or paper that  is a real friend of British Columbia  will care to run the risk of wrecking  so desirable a result on the x-ocli: of  rabid partizanship. , _>  "Mr. Charlton's Sabbath Observance  bill litis been reduced to the clause  prohibiting' the preparation or publication of a newspaper for sale on  Sunday. The only effect of this clause  in British Columbia will be to greatly  increase the hours of Sunday labor for  printeis and newspaper men: A Sun-  day'morning paper,-such as are all  those published, in this province, is  prepared on Saturday and issued early  on Sunday" morning. In order to give  their employes a chain.'- to rest on  Sundays, the British Columbia morning diiilies'clej not issue any paper, on  Monday,mornings. But if their Sunday issue is cut off, they will have to  make their men work' on Sunday to  got out a paper on Monday. In his  zeal for Sunday observance Mr. Charlton is swallowing a great big camel  and straining out a most infinitesimal  gnat. The Columbian, which as an  evening paper is not affected by the  proposed clause, upholds it, .pleading  with a sanctimonious snuffle that the  publication of papers on Sunday  mornings is only the thin  end of the  wedge of an issue on every one of the  seven days of the week. But there is  no. real,.reason, to   suppose that_this  THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY  HOW  REVELSTOKE   KEPT   THE  DAY IN THE JUBILEE YEAR  The Baseball Match Won by Kamloops  ���������The Bicycle Race���������The Kindergarten  Supper and Concert���������Beautiful Weather  and a Pleasant Day  May 24th passed off very pleasantly.  The Kamloops baseball team turned  up after all, and the match, whicli was  played in the afternoon, resulted in a  victory for the visitors by U to 0. An  impromptu fight on the main-street  proved of interest to those who did  not get up to the baseball. The combatant who in his thirst for gore tore  off his shirt and rushed tei the fray,  waving his garments, in the air as an  oriflamme of war, added considerably  to the gaiety of the street for a brief  period. Later on the bicycle race, 300  yards' from the Victoria to the Central,' attracted the attention of the  crowd." There .were four entries���������  R. P. Pettipiece, Frank Lewis, Harry  Scott, and G. 'IcTavish. R. Scott won  with Mi-Tuvish second. Another race  was got up over the* same course with  the rtsult that Lewis came in first and  McTavish was again a close second.  During the events the band performed  in front of Peterson's hall very creditably", considering the absence of their  leader and' baritone player, iind the  crowd lvgan to turn in to the hall to  enjoy the good things prepared by the  ladies interested in "the kindergarten  movement, where they found a most  elegant and^ tasteful display and an  abundance of good ' things to revive  the inner man after the fatigues of the  day. After.the supper the hall was  filled to its utmost capacity for the  concert, which brought the day to a  most enjoyable close.

Spokane,   Wash.  argument is based on anything more  than imagination,iind it is of.no weight  at all, when this solid advantages to  printers gained by the Sunday holiday  under , the present system ^ is considered, and the certainty that Mr.  Charlton's misguided fanaticism will  simply have the effe*ct of "depriving  them altogether of the free Sundays  they at present enjoy. The Puritans  of olel prohibited hear baiting, as Mn-  cauley remarks, not because it caused  suffering to the bear, hut because it  afforded pleasures to spectators, It  may be shrewdly surmised that their  modern 'successors wish to prohibit  the issue of morning papers on.Sunday  not because their'publication causes  the publishers to encroach for a few  hours on the day of rest, but because  their perusal causes a great many  other people to amuse themselves by  committing an act which in their  phraseology is called "desecrating the  Sabbath." Our nineteenth century  Pharisees do not mind printers working all Sunday in ��������� order that a full  report of their preacher's sermon may  be dished up to them with their matutinal porridge and toast on Monday,  hut they have the very strongest objections possible to the^idea that people, who do not see eye to eye with  them in these matters, should be able  to offend their prejudices by procuring  the latest news for mental refreshment on a Sunday afternoon.        ,.

It will be apparent from the list of  the mining machinery classed as dutiable under the new tariff, that the  situation is practically unchanged  from the state of alfaii-s under the old  regime. Such portions of machinery  as are obtainable from Canadian  manufacturei-s are excluded from the  free list. Any person, for instance,  bringing in a gold saving machine  would have to pay duty on the engine,  boiler, air-pumns and dynamos which  might be essential lo run it. The only  difference is a reduction of 2J per cent,  on the duty on some of these articles.  If this is free trade, what in thername  of ull that is wonderful lis protection?  Police Court  Before F. Frasor. J.F.  The Queen's birthday docket was  not a very heavy one. The morning  after the celebration four cases were  interviewed by Mr. Fraser. E. Otis,  drunk and disorderly, contributed $5  and costs to the provincial revenue,  while A. Stewart, the chief combatant  of Monday's general melee, yielded up  $2 ditto. Jno. Hughes, drunk and  fighting, was let off with a reprimand  and the expenses of the court. Geo.  Robinson, a negro, charged with fighting, was dismissed.  (Before J. D. Gnham, S. M.)

Mining Critic:  Sir: Allow me a little space in your  valuable journal to ask a few pertinent  questions in referunce* tei .what is now  generally termed the " Orphan Boy"  swindle. , *  1. How can 3.JXV- Haskins hold the  Orphan Boy Gold Mining Co. liable for  e-ash he claims to have advanced em  September 7th, 1890, more * than one  month previous to the existence of the  company, the letters of incorporation  having been issued on October 10th,  1S00? _ -* -      '  2. What authority has J.W.Haskins  for charging- the sum cf.SlOO. for two  trips to Revelstoke .and return, when  he was in Vancouver on his own business, and not that of the company ?  3.. If it costs but $100. for two trips  to Revelstoke and return" for the presi-  dentand manager, why is the accomodating 'secretary treasurer, . H. A.  -Brown, paid $100. for one return trip ?  Has the increased remuneration anything to do with the secretary's silence  about the judgment?  4." -Why did the secretary' open the  books of the books of the company on  or about the 2lst of April. 1S07, and  transfer Haskin's stock to Templeton,  when he bad notified shareholders in  March that the books of the company  were closed > against them without  assigning any reason ?  5. Why did the secretary-treasurer  and board of directors not compel the  president and manager, Mr. J. W.  Haskins, to desist from slaughtering  his stock to the exclusion of treasury  sh.-u es ?  6. Why was J. W." Haskins' stock  ���������made out-in-blank-and-snld-to the-pub-  lic as treasury, stock ? Surely the  secretary, H. A. Biown, was aware of  all this; and yet he took no action to  protect thosu who were p������,ying him  his salary for that purpose.  7. Dill H. A. Brown receive in e-ash  the modest sum of $772.75 claimed to  have been paid him by the piesidcnt  and.manager in his bill of particulars?  8. What has become of the surplus  of $3,200 stated to have been' in the  treasury on December 7th, 180(1, after  payments of all liabilities? Yet the  president and manager claims, in his  bill of particulars, that a considerable  liability existed at that time.  Now, Mr. Editor, I submit that this  iniquitous transaction calls for a most  thorough investigation upon the part  of tho government, and those found  guilty of wrecking this most piomising  company should be rigorously dealt  with. A Victim.  Vancouver. B. C, May 18th. 181)7.  fin an interview with Mr. H. A.  Brown yesterd-iy a Herald representative learnt that the last transfer of  stock, $228,500 shares of J. W. Haskins  tn Mr. Templeton, of Vancouver, was  made on' May 11th last. The books  were first closeel to the shareholders  on or about the first of April, aud were  not opened again, so far as the public  knew, till this transfer took place, and  they are now closed again. In the  original division of shares, 700,1-100 in  all, 200,000 were devoted to treasury  stock, 300,000 were allotted to J. W.  Haskins and 200,000 to F. C. Whitney.  Whitney litis disposed or 110,000 of his  and still holds 81,000. Up to the time  of the Templeton transfer Haskins  had disposed of71,500. Inconsequence  he now holds none. M. I.

The small majority which carried  tbe bylaw as well, as the workers  who left nothing undone to assist  or defeat it, will be'surprised at  ^th'e^s'mall'amount^ot-Ecood-or-evil-  whieh will follow the change.  People will still pro to church or  remain at home whether cars run  or not, and those who contemplate the beauties of rural nature  from the top of a Sundayccar will  no doubt feel better than if they  had spent the day contemplating  the number of brick-s^on the wall  of their neighbour".' house-;. The  street cars, however, will have to  be run in tbe face of a statute of  the Province of Ontario against  Sunday cars, made with the usual  loop hole, like a great many other  acts of Canadian legislatures,  which seem to have been passed  for the especial purpose of hoodwinking the religious portion of  the community. Horse racing at  country agricultural fairs is  contrary to the law in Ontario,  but there is nothing wrong about  a "trial for speed" for money. The  curfew law might be quoted as  another example The late Daniel  O'Connell said that one could drive  a coach and four through any Act  of i the Imperial Parliament, so  that there shouldn't have been  much difficulty in steering a street  ear through an Act of a local Canadian Legislature on a Sunday.  The most curious circumstance in  connection with theses-humbug  laws is that many otherwise sensible people seem co approve of  them and look upon their authors  as Christian statesmen.

This caused  alarm at the palace anel the feeling of  consternation increased when tlie  Porte received official advices from  SofitVannouncing thet orders had been  issued for the partial mobilization of  the Bulgarian army.

In consequence of the threats of the  iindergractuiites.there have been many  defections from the ranks of those  who supported the proposal to conter  degrees upon women.  Winnipeg Liberals suggest that  Lieutenant Governor Patterson be  transferred to the North West Terri-  ories. and that a popular member of  the Manitoba Government be appointed to the governorship of that Province.
