Mallory, Mgr., Revelstoke Branch.  Time    goes    on.    Month,   follows  month.     The   opposition    provincial  press keeps up an intermittent attack.  The   members   of    the    house,   who  usually vote against the government,  and who appear to imagine that they  are the leaders of   the  opposition  in  the .country have  met.    But nothing  litis been done, or is being done, nor is  there any appearanceof anything going  to be done to organize a party in  the  province, bent not merely on displacing   the  Turner  government,   which  might only mean   to   turn   out   corruption of the Victoria stamp to put  in disnonesty of the Vancouver brand,  but primarily and  especially  on   inaugurating  an   honest  and   capable  rcgii_-$ in  British Columbia politics.  This is a task, which will require considerable preliminary preparation and  discussion before the vague inert mass  of opposition to ther Victoria family  compact can  be worked up  into an  organized and  efficient party   of  reform.   Anybody would think  Hia.bJ"o  long as the Turner cabinet is defeated  at tlie next election^ every thing will be  well.   There is no particular guarantee, as far as the Herald can see that  matters will  be   one   whit   improved  under successors chosen  in  the haphazard manner, in which the people  of .this    province "have    apparently,  made up 'its mind to be resigned to  choose them.'' There is not, for that  matter, any'siicli a dead certainty, as  some people.see'm to.imagine that the  Turner administration will  be-defeated at all.   They have everything at  their  command,   which   the   fact   of  their being in  office Implies, patronage   to   cVspense,   public   money   for  judicious expenditure,  a  strong personal influence to bring to bear on the  constituencies.     " The    redistribution  bill is apparently to be left entirely  to  themselves to   frame.     The   country  has not even a suggestion to offer in  the matter.   There is little doubt that  they will frame it so as to hurt themselves as little its possible.     Redistribution can .itself   be  used   to   atljtch  .wavering constituencies to, their side.  After the exhibition of - cynieal���������levity  and impudence with which the Cassiar  steal was pushed along in the teeth of  thej_indignation of the whole province,  no person in his senses can doubt that  the government is  quite -capable   of  using its present majority in the house  to force through a redistribution  bill,  which will ignore every 'consideration  except their  own   return   to  power.  The powers   behind   them   have  too  much at stake to permit of any slackness, any feeble leanings to  honesty  and justice in the  matter.   No  such  nonsense  will   be  tolerated  for  one  moment.  At this present juncture, taking into consideration-the disorganized state  of. the opposition, its lack of leaders,  iind its apparent inability to take  workable sh-tpe and form, the Herald confesses that the chances seem  to it to be very much in favor of the  Turner cabinet. They have every  practical advantage in their favor.  They are not all the men to forego the  use ot them on sentimental grounds,  nor would their taskmasters allow  them to do so, even if inclined. And  indeed if the popular opposition mere,  ly takes the form of voting against  the Tinner candidate, with the elfect  that another government equally  without definite platform, aim or  responsibility succeeds the present  one, the Herald does not anticipate  any very strikingly benefici.il results  to this province, even if the Turner  government is turned out. British  Columbia politics are at present a  chaos, without form aud void of object and meaning. Nothing in the  shape of real progress and reform can  take place until this condition of  affairs is remedied.- There is not likely to occur for some time a better  opportunity for inaugurating a new  era that exists just" at present. Nobody seems to care to take hold of it,  and at the present outlook it is slipping away.  Gregor, Esquires, and an Hon. Secretary-Treasurer, Major General Kin-  chant, to whom all communications  are to be addressed. 'Whether these  gentlemen constitute the League itself as well as the committee thereof  docs not appear. At all events it is  the committee and not the League,  who come forward in the circular with  a scries of resolutions by which it appears that they intend to appoint correspondents in each electoral district  or riding, whoso services will be  rendered gratuitously, the membership fee, $1.00, going to expenses of  postage, stationery, etc% The work  of the LeagueMs to be conducted without regard to party politics. The correspondents are to base their work on  the Acts of 1876 and 1801 and the lists  of voters in use at the last election in  1804, and they are to keep separate  lists regarding voters under the headings Resident, Transfers, Left the  Province, Dead. The information is.  to be as complete as possible and as  the committee justly observe "the  work will demand constant attention."  The grave and simple pomposity  with which tho above propositions are  put forward would extract a smile out  of a coffin. Does anybody with any  practical experience in Canadian  politics really suppose'that correspondents are going"to be found to compile  voters' lists purely for-philanthropic  considerations, without pay and without even the stimulus of party politics,  and mainly, as far as 'anyone can extract any lucid idea out of the. circular  at all, for the information of half-a-  dozen busy bodies in Vancouver? The  Herald's advice to the committee of  the Electoral League is to make a  final call on the membeis to pay their  printers' bill for the* circulars and retire once more into that private position, which their obvious ignoiance of  the British Columbian point in political matters so eminently qualifies  them to occupy." They mean well, but  they do not comprehend the situation.  FROM THE FAMOUS LARDEAU  MINING     MATTERS      IN      AND  AROUND   FERGUSON.  PIPES  TOBACCOS  BOOKS  STATIONERY  JAPANESE FANCY GOODS  A.report of the second-annual meeting of the Imperial'Bank which has  been laid on the Hehald table, contains' some notewe-trtliy - remarks ^by  Mr.D.R.'Wilkie, the general manager.  It is noticeable, and though a -solitary  instance is*doubtIess typical of numerous others, that owing to the appearance of " the hideous spectre of repudiation in the shape of 16 to l"bi-metal-  lism," the bank found itsedf compelled  to liquidate a very large portion" of iis  investments in the United States.  Speaking of this province Mr. Wilkie  said:" "British Columbia has during  the year attracted the attention of the  mining world, and although the Bank  has not directly interested itself in the  success of the adventurers, using that  word in its most respectful sense, be-,  yoncl the_opening of a, branch at the  NOTE AND COMMENT  gateway^of'Wesb^Kootenay", we^hUveV  shared indirect benefits from their  enterprise. The development of mines  demands the employment of a large  population, who again require supplies  in the shape of food and clothing,  machinery and uppliances, 'the production of which gives employment to  the agriculturist, the artisan and the  middleman far from and near to the  site of actual operations. The rancher and the farmer on and near the  eastern slopes of the Rocky mountains,  where we are well represented, have  benefitted by the demand for beef and  butter and coarse grains. Manitoba  has found a western market for it's  surplus products. The older Provinces  of the Dominion have been called upon  to supply machinery and other manufactured articles, the production of  which has kept open many industries  which otherwise belanguishing to-day.'

According to a circular received yesterday by the Heuald it is apparent  that t body known as the Electoral  League exists in Vancouver. Its objects are threefold: to ensure every  qualified person being placed in the  register of Provincial Voters; to make  transfers in any change of district or  riding and to encourage every voter  to record his vote at the poll. There  is a committee consisting of Col. F.  G. E. Warren, C. M. CJ., Capt. R. G.  Tallow,   M. Costello   and   D.  C.

Lively���������  The Bruce and Coin Shewing up  Wonderfully Well Close to Town.  From the Herald Man on the Wing.  Ferguson, July 17.���������J. McEdwards  has got the lumber on the ground for  the construction of his hotel in the  west end of town near Alpha Creek.  Mail matters in this section are becoming intolerable, and the neglect of  the post oflice department is keeping  the whole country back. The least  Insp. Fletcher could do would bo to  take a run up through the Lardeau  and examine the state of affairs for  himself. He seems to think his duties  end after seeing that postmasters in  the accounting ofliccs have everything  correct, and the idea of visiting* the  new districts oT Kootenay in order to  find out their requirements does not  seem to occur to. him. At the same  time representation of our needs by  petition or in the newspapers does not  seem to have the slightest effect.  Hilltnan'& Graham, owners of the  Ellesmerc and I. X. L. .claims on the  North Fork about five miles from  town, are putting a couple of men to  work developing these properties.  The. Horne-Payne have sold their  pack train to Hill to Thompson of Sandon, who'liave eontr'actel to haul the  company's supplies in to their mines,  I and bring out ore from the Broadview  and Silver Cup to the Landing for shipment.  Messrs. Crockett and Jennings, who  own the Jeannette.on the Silver Cup  lead, have four men sinking a shaft on  the claim. The surface indications are  excellent, and no doubt but this will  turn oiit.it valuable proposition.  A; Cummings has sent two men to  do assessment work on the" "Kitty- and  Handy 'Xn&y on Cariboo creek on' tho  Duncan slope. ��������� -  'F. S. Davis and family of Spokane,  are guests at the Hotel Ferguson.  Mr. Davis owns the Coin claim, adjoining the corner of the townsite, on  which he has put some men to work,  and some fine specimens of ore are  coming out of it. The'Bruce owned  by A. Cunningham just above it is also  shewing up remarkably well.  Campbell and Johnson are working  at the Mollie Mack on Gainer creek  with excellent results. They report  mining matters very active on ' the  creek.  jr~M7~Robinsoh-r^tnanagei*���������of���������the  Commonwealth Co., of Brandon, w.is  in Ferguson this' week looking after  the interests of his company, 'who  own the Vera and Glenside groups on  Surprise Creek, six miles up the North  Fork. He was well satisfied with the  shewings. The company also own the  Brookland at tho south end of Trout  Lake. The government trail lias been  completed to the claim. A 100 foot  tunnel hits just been completed on this  claim, anel the company are calling  for landers for a 100 foot shaft. Dur-  ing'the winter the company intend to  concentrate their efforts on the Glenside, and are building cabins there  with that view.  A crying want at Ferguson is a feed  and livery stable. There is no place  to put up a horse nt present, However, it is understood that Mr. Mc-  Edwards intends to run a stable in  connection with the new hotel which  ho is erecting in town.  F. McCarty is in town making arrangements to put up n butcher's  shop.  The saw mill is now running in good  shape and cutting from 8 to 10,000 feet,  creating quite a stir in building tctivi-  ty. o  Roberts & Ross are putting   up(ja  about completed, and will be ready  for business at the end of the week.  Mrs. O'Connor's new hotel is being  pushed through to completion. When  finished this hotel will one of the  handsomest and host furnished houses  in North Koolenay.  " Ir. J. McBurncy is in town and has  given instructions to have his lots  cleat-eel. on which it is his intention to  erect a large lager beer brewery. The  plans are drawn out, and the construction of tlie building will be pushed with all vigor.  The Balmoral Hotel, Cnmniings  Bros., proprietors, is just being put  into good shape. The paper hangers  will be put to work next week, and  a caiload of furnitute is now on the  way. When completed the Balmoral  will be fust-class in every respect. T  There is a gootl opening here for a  flour ttnd feed store.  C. R. Scott is building two residences  on Lome Avenue.  Messrs. Fleming nnd Hamilton, of  Revelstoke, are making arrangements  to put on a daily stage line between  Thomson's Landing and Ferguson.  A. Reid. druggist of Victoria, is here  and making arrangements to build on  his lot, which he purchased on Victoria  avenue on Friday. The building will  be used as a drug storo, and will be  opened as soon as the carpenters  are finished with their work.  A piano, the property . of Mrs.  O'Connor's, litis reached Ferguson  safely. This is the first intrnmeiit to  land in the new milling camp, and that  it wtis a welcome arrival was fully  demonstrated by the numbers' who  tried how the '.'old machine works."    '  Mrs. D. Robinson was a'visitor-to  Ferguson this week. She left again  on Saturday for Revelstoke, accompanied by her husband, who has been  ill-for lhe past few days.

WOMEN IN POLITICS.  Goldwin Smith iu the Toronto  "Weekly Sun:     The    women   of  Jamestown, iu Kansas, having the  municipal franchise, banded themselves    together   ..and    captured  the municipal government,  electing a female mayor and city council.   The result of this triumph of  feminism was, it seems.an increase  in the number of low saloons, with  their moral accompaniments, and  a general carnival of misrule.  The  situation was hardly improved by  a violent raid of women  on  the  6aloon~, which, whatever its effect  might be  on  the saloon, keepers  was not likely to restore respect  for law.   Law, though ifc presents  itself to us   a~  moral  authority,  rests at bottom on the force of the  community; and tho  force of the  community is male. So tbe .women  will find it if  they try to take the  government into their   own hands  and iE the men are  weak - enough  to allow them.   Not for   the   first  time in  history  the   passion for  manishness has  taken 'possession  of a  certain  number  of  womer.  They are  forcing" themselves riot  only into politics and political office,    but    into    the   legal   profession    and    other    professions  and      callings      hitherto   male.  The       most        eccentric     ��������� of  them are forcing themselves into  the  police,   the  militia, "and the  ring  of  spectators   at tho  prize  fight.

If she  is to be the rival and competitor  of the man, she will have to give  up her claim to'his protection and  forbearance. She will have to  renounce privileges if she demands  equity. The New Women, after  all, are a mere handful, but they  are imperiling the position and  privileges of the whole sex.  Utrecht's Steering Ludicrous  and That  of   Winnipeg   Not   Much Better���������  v- ���������Forty-one Strokes to   the Minute  Makes   the   Winnipegs   Victorious  Henley on the Thames, July 14.���������  The first heat for the Stewards enp was  rowed today by the Winnipegs against  Utrecht. The' Winnipegs got away  swiftly, taking a prompt lead and  striking the water at the rate of 11  strokes to the minute. The Utrechts  rowed at 40 to the minute. When  nearly at the top of Temple.Island the  Dutchmen collided with the piles. This  accident completely disconcerted the  whole crew and from that point to the  finish their steering was yery bad and  sometimes ludicrous. The Winnipegs  did not make a much better showing,  as their steering was very unreliable.  At half way post their boat was in the  Utrechts water and when the Dutchmen spurted the Canadians were within an ace cf being fouled. The Winnipegs then returned to their water,  but the Dutchmen with their characteristic obstinacy followed them, leaving their own water. Opposite the  Grand stand when both crews were in  neutral water, the Dutchmen still followed the Winnipegs. ��������� For an instant  both crews virtually came to a standstill, but they started again, the Winnipegs leading and winning what was  certainlynnexciting-race���������in_iOne_re=-  spect, by half a length. The time was  seven minutes and forty-seven seconds.  The boat of the Winnioegs seemed to  travel oacllv, while the Utrecht's craft  acted much better.

The finals will be rowed tomorrow,   ���������    A  JAPANESE   EDITOR   ON   THE  GREATNESS OF ENGLAND  STRANGLED TO DEATH  An  One of the greatest strikes of  modern times is now going on in  the Eastern States, and ..from all  appearances it will continue for  some time. It is almost sure to  effect directly over 3,500,000 of  people and more or less the whole  continent. It is claimed by some  thatthestrikeisowingtotheefforts  of mine and mill owners to restrict  the production until it shall have  been overtaken by the consumption, and that after the strike has  gone on for a few weeks it will be  quietly settled. Others claim that  it was a political stroke on the  part of Ohio Democrats to !cripple  industry and defeat Mark Hauna,  who ii running for Senator in  Ohio. The fact that the authorities have turned "out a sufficient  nuumber of marshals to keep the  peace, shows they are afraid of  bloodshed. Not only this, but it  is estimated that over $50,000,000  will not coyer the loss suitained  by the coal companies, railways in  regard to freight, loss to the  public consumers, operators put  out and men's wages withdrawn.  Beaten'by a Length, Though They Tried  Their Best to Win Out���������The Winnipegs Accept Defeat With Very  Becoming Grace  Henley on Thames, July 10.���������The  New College is now the favourite for  the Stewards challenge cup. Although  the ladies on the grandstand and lawn  wore Winnipeg colours.and sentiment  was all for the New College.  In the heat rowed yesterday the  Winnipegs wei e an eighth of a length  ahead at the end of Temple Island,  rowing -10 strokes a minute as against  37 for the New College. They then  drew out and got a lead of a length.  The half mile stake was reached in '.1  minutes and 31 seconds. When be-  vond Fawley Court boathouse the  New College four were even with the  Winnipegs.  At the three-quarter stake, reached  in -I minutes and 12 seconds, the Winnipegs were half a length behind, and  from that point, although they spurted grandly and decreased the lead of  the NewjCollege to three or four feet,  they could never catch the Oxonians,  who finished winners by a length in  the record time of 7 minutes and 35  seconds. This is four seconds better  than the previous records.  The Winnipegs after the race were  greeted on every side* in a most cordial  ia������]iion,_all_th_e_"^gl___hc_r^_s_,oi__ge3ing  to their quarters complimenting them  upon their plucky behavour, and  prais'.ng them for the sportsmanlike  way in which they accepted their  defeat.

The editor in this pnrt of  the paper has lately written an article  entitled "England's Greatness," which  is as follows:" "Thy greatness, O England, is not thy own making. Thou  hast not stored for thyself coals in  Lancashire and iron in Yorkshire. Thy  commodious harborsofLiverpool, Bristol, Southampton, toe, werenot digged  by thee. The warm wind that comes  from the west, and the fruitful rains  which it brings, are brought to the  shores by a power which is not thine  own. Thou wast placed in the centre  of tho land hemisphere, and the whole  world turns towards then. Thou art  the world's mart, and thy wealth is  the world's. Then thy laws, literature,  and religion ��������� they too are not thy  thinking. What' were thy rlohbes,  Austin, anel Blackstone, hael there not  been Cassar and Justinian for thee?  What were thy Milton and Shakespeare, had there not been vEschlvus,  Horace, and Virgil, who unwittingly  wrought for thee? What were thy  Wyckliff, Knox and Wesley, had not  there heen Isaiah, Daniel, and Paul,  who preached for thee ? Rome,  Greece, Judc.i, Phoencia, nil contributed their parts to make thee great.  Thou art tho proudest of ages of  human labour, from Abrahnm anel  Homer downwards. The world demands from thco a service ! which is  thy due. Thy fleet ought to be cm-  ployed not merely to protect thy  interests, but to right the world's  wrong. Thy pluck and skill ought to  be freely given to help the helpless,  to rescue the perishing. Japan, too,  comes to thee, not to beg help of thee,  but to claim trom thee fellowship of  brothers, which is thy honour to give  and ours to receive. In all our strifes  of onward progress, great is our need  of the arts, thy laws, thy institutions,  thy literature as well.

Public Opinion in England, However, Is  Opposed to Going to War for the  Sake of Rehabilitating Greece���������The  Situation as Viewed in Europe  London, July 14.���������Tho Evening  Standard regatds the situation in  South Eastern Europe as extremely  grave and says there is no doubt that  unless appearances are most deceptive hostilities between Turkey and  Greece will shortly be renewed. The  paper says: "Perhaps we may bo at  the beginning of a general European  war."  Referring to the broad question of  the attempt hy Europe to coerce Turkey, the Evening Standard says: "So  far as England is concerned, public  opinion does not favor going to war  for the sake of Greece. Perhaps the  best way out would be to make a compromise with Turkey, for"the exacting  deadlock is slowly but surely ruining  Greece. .We have before us a terrible  . prospect of a European war, and it is  not worth running such a risk for the  sake of rehabilitating 'Greece." -  THE SULTAN MAKES A STATEMENT  Constantinople. July 15.���������Important ministerial councils were heid on  Sunday  and  Monday    at which  an  indemnity  of   ������0.000,000 was   agreed  ' upon as the extreme limit of the Turk-  |, isn concession.    This agreement was  settled by the Imperial Board of Trade.  The council further prepared a report  stigmatizing a concert of Europe as a  " league  of  cross   against  crescent.*'  'The   Sultan,   after    considering  the  ' report,   answered   by   the   following  statement:     " I   am   convinced that  the elfort and energy of the  Powers  are directed freely towards the maintenance of peace and the prevention  ������������������.of  fresh   complications.     Under the  circumstances it is plain  the duty of  Turkey, whose sentiments are likewise  pacific, to put an end to the present  abnormal situation.     Consequently, I  command the Ministers, if possible, to  , lind tho necessary means for concluding negotiations and begin the prelim-  . inaries for peace by Thursday."  ae  .9-3  IGNORING THE POWERS  In Spite of Sharp Reply,  the Suttan is  Determined  Constantinople,  July " 13. ��������� The  ! Turkish ministry at a special session  ' of the   Cabinet  yesterday,  discussed  the replies of the powers to the circu-  . lar.notc of thb Porte.    Notwithstanding the unfavourable characterof the  response, a large majority of the ministers reiterated the former advice to  the Sultan to insist upon the Peneois  frontier.   It is believed the Porte in  maintaining   this   attitude   is  acting  -���������upon the conviction the powers will  be unable to agree among themselves  - on any measure of coercion. *   '   -  1    Saudi Bey's appointment was tantamount to sending him into exile, and  i was made, it is said,  because  he  was  snsoected    of   affiliations", with     the  .

Inimell shot and killed his  sweetheart, Kitty Askew, at the corner of Ponder and Richards streets,  and then shot himself. Both had resided in Vancouver a short time,  thoughTmmell-went-down-to-Seattle  a short time ago and worked there for  some months. The couple had been  eugaged for some time, but had frequent rows, Ininiell being jealous of  ner, and if reports are true his suspicions of the girl were not entirely unfounded. The girl, who worked as a  waitress in the Boulder restaurant.got  home about 9 o'clock, and found Im-  niell awaiting her arrival. Just as she  entered the house she discovered she  had lost a dollar bill and commenced  to search for it. Ininiell asked her  what she was looking for, and she, annoyed at the loss of tho money, answered sharply, ','It was no business of  h'S what she was looking for." She  then went down stairs to look on the  street for the bill. Mrs. Casher, with  whom she boarded, followed with a  lamp. Inimell stayed behind a moment, and then hurried out of the  house, pushing past Mrs. Casher.  What "ust immediately preceeded the  tragedy is not known, though some  people stftte they heard the couple  quarrelling. They had ouly reached  the corner, a block from the house,  when people were startled by a loud  pistol shot, followed by a woman's  screams. Two more shots followed in  rapid succession, and persons who had  hurried to the spot saw a woman stagger a few steps and then,-drop,-and a  man lying stretched out' on the .sidewalk. Inimell hud taken gooel aim  and death was instantaneous, The woman being shot through the breast  and the man through the head.  Mrs. Casher, with whom Kitty  lived, stated that Kitty had told her  Immell always carried a revolver, and  she had warned her to be careful or he  would shoot her, as he was very hasty  and madly jealous. Kitty Askew was  about 18 years of age and was a tall,  blonde woman, and had it not heen  for smallpox marks on her face, would  be pretty. She has lived here for 10  years, her stepfather being Hugh Cameron. Immell was abont 28 years of  age and a blacksmith by trade. He  was a steady, industrious fellow, his  quick temper and jealous nature being  about his only faults. An inquest will  be held tomorrow.  F.
