The exact significance of the enthusiasm, with whicli the jubilee wits celebrated in London and the olel country  generally is beginning to appear as  the more detailed accounts come to  hand. There has been quite a discussion going on over this qiisstion in the  Montreal Star, some writers contending that it was evoked by the good  qualities of the Queen as a woman,  others that it was her merits as a  sovereign, which called it forth. As a  matter of fact it docs not take much  reading between the lines to see that  neither of these considerations was  the principal factor, but rather a  glorification of the Empire embodied  in the person of its sovereign. The  colonial premiers and the colonial  troops havo excited the wildest  enthusiasm, wherever they appeared,  an enthnsiam which broke through  official red" tape and military punctiliousness, when the N, W. M. Police  were posted to lead the march part ol*  the whole Imperial army at the Aider-  shot review. , The jubilee marked the  triumph of the Imperial idea over  British conservatism. It exhibited  Imperialism transformed *'. into an  emotion. For the first lime the people  as a body grasped the full sense of  Empire*, Uie real meaning of their own  position iu the world, and the feeling  seemed to come upon them with overwhelming forced  And beneath' the enthusiasm a,deep-  er note is discernible. One correspondent mentions how the women could be  seen crying as the colonials passed  and again at the sight of -the great  war ships during tlie review of the  fleet. Another noticed a feeling.tilmost  a.presentiment, of impending calamity  among the crowds." The-cheering for  the foreign.war'ships was very faint  and perfunctory. "This is not a usual  characteristic of an English crowd.  At - the coronation . procos.uon they  cheered Marshal-Soult almost as much  as- theyidid the-Queen, The innate  feeling ~cf. superiority is" so great as to  place themabove" any"petty_. demonstrations of" illwill. But it was.as if  tho,time was.tuipropitions for mere  courtesy. The issues at stake are-too  great. "Many there are that hate  us "and signs'are not wanting that  the resources of diplomacy iu staving  olf the'inevitahle conflict are becoming exhausted. The-European political  atmosphere is highly charged just now  and the Empire would have, furnished  the object of attack before now, only  her statesmen have always man-tged  at every turn to make it singularly  dangerous and disadvantageous for  the other side to begin. There is small  wonder���������the���������jubilee���������crowds,���������had���������no  cheers to throw away.

This is tho first, .instalineut of retaliation, into which Canada has been  forced by the barbarous policy towards  foreigners adopted by* the United  Sttit.es, against her- traditions and  against her wishes. But there is a  certain necessity for the enforcement  of the law under the-circumstances,  which is quite apart from any soreness  felt in Canada, over the treatment  received by Canadians in' the United  States. ..Canada has to guard against  an inrush of the hoboe and tinhorn  element from the cities of the Pacific  states to the construction* of the new  road. The enforcement of our new  alien act will act as a detriment to  this undesirable, American element  and at the same time give Canadian  labor its proper consideration in the  building of this great national work.

AMAN'S WnSE"  KevkiLstoicc St-vtion, li, C.  The Henley regatta is on and as  usual when old country matters are  to the fore the .Manitoba Free Press  is all abroad. Its list of the entries  contains such geni3 ai Christian church  Oxford for Christ church, Urecht  University for Utrecht, Bailey College  for B11H0I, Ti itin apparently for Trinity and Letting College, Cambridge,  which we confess is beyond us. Such  mistakes in a journal of the pretensions  and influence of the Free Press ai'e  insufferable.  The Kootenaian objects to the coming provincial -elections .being" run  simply on the lines of Turner and  Anti-Turner and wants to see it run  on straight party linesr ��������� There is no  question of Mr. Turner in this matter.  What this province wants to see in  power is a Reform party bent" on  sweeping out of existence the whole  corrupt, antiquated,' and easy going  system of doing business"'at present in  vogue in Victoria, and on replacing it  by an honest and businesslike administration of public affairs.. This province has been tan quite ��������� long enough  for the btiiieQb of a little clique at  "Victoria. \t is high time it was administered for the benefit' of the people. Surelyi this , is "a basis of a programme on which-we can all work  together without' lugging in party  names, .which are' rapidly losing all  meaning even in Dominion politics. "���������  According to American despatches  the -United States is retdy to swoop  on Hawaii, if Japan makes any demonstration of hostilities. Swoops are  best made without so much cackling.  This annexation business is ^best discussed from the point of view of un  fait- accompli. Great Britain, which  has had some experience in these  matters, prefers this method. She  has found that to be really profitable  discussionhadbetter.be deferred until the Union Jack is comfortably  hoisted, a squadron is at anchor round  the corner, a British resident is in full  bloom administering the pax Britan-  nica, and a band is playing God Save  the Queen in front of the Government  House every evening. Then is the  time for the British Socialist and  Radical press to tear their hair, for  the editor of Truth to vituperate and  the American French and German  papers to rave. A time for everything  and everything in its time. The time  for swooping on Hawaii is before the  Japanese get there. It would be a  thousand pities for the United States  government to miss that island, after  all the dirt they have waded through  to get it.  The principal liiie^of- cleavage in  Dominion politics' used^to be on the  tariff. But the Liberals, now that  they are in power, have'merely -modified the .tariff in certain-details without  to-'uehin^r'the "prineiples^-bn- which it  was-'based by former - Conservative  governments." And .what has this got  to do with our provincial politics anyhow ? What have the questions of  protection and free trade in 'Dominion  politics to do .with an honest government at Victoria? - Surely our friends,  the Grits",'do not intend to endeavor  to impose any longer on the constituencies with the cry that they are the  party of political purity, in" tbe face of  the fact that their own journals in  Ontario and Quebec are. denouncing  them for continuing and even improving upon every method of corruption  in vogue under the ' wicked Tories.  Railway^.bonuses,i_with_ the_;_usual  attendant crop of scandals, the system of party patronage abused and  extended beyond all precedent, wholesale bribery of the provinces by new  subsidies granted and old ones re voted,  an official executive kept up to its full  superfluous strength, the preposterous  size of the cabinet even increased,  these are* the first fruits of the new  political "morality. If it is to these  people alone that this province has to  look for a reformed administration,  the case is hopeless.' "Business is  business, as you know" will be a poor  motto, und?r which to commence our  struggle for honest government.

Skeleton Discovered in the Omincca  - Counti*y  Letters recently received in Vancouver from the   Omiueco country   clear  up the mystery surrounding the fate  of Ben Wrotle, an old time hotel  man  at the coast, and latterly at Lardeau  City during tbe boom   there.     Last  February some roaming Indians found  a skeleton about ICO miles east of Fort  Graham, on the Osilmia river.together  with   papers .and  other  documents,  .which when deciphered at the nearest  Hudson Bay post, left 110 doubt that  the bones were those of  Ben  Wrede.  A crutch was found with  the bones,  and the*, supposition is that he' cut his  foot or leg in   some   manner   which  caused his death.    He was last seen at  Fort   Graham on  the  Findlay  river,  and" left there prospecting  on March  10th', 1800.     The   Indians   buried the  remains where they found them.   Deceased, who  was   for  a  long time a  partner   with  Mr. Chas.  Docting. of  Vancouver,   was  at   one   period very  well olf.     Latterly be became unfortunate  in  bis  bnsini's-i ventures, and  the collapse of the Lardeau boom compelled  him   Lo  start- out   piospecting  about   two   years   ago,   choosing the;  wild  and  desolate  Omincca   country,  where he perished, for the scene of his  wanderings.     He  left a wife and five  children residing ot Vancouver.  VISIT   OF   HON.-G:7B".- MARTINT-  He Inspects the Rivei* Bank'and' Other^  Points of Interest in Revelstoke   . .-  Hon. G. B.

ABOUT CONSTRUCTION  SUPT  HANEY      TALKS      FOR  PUBLICATION  Next month we will have a talk with you about general  Dry Goods  Something else you all want to hear about, which is  Carpets  One Hundred Miles of the Crow's Nest  Road to be Built Before Winter���������  Work to be Continued all Winter  and to be Completed Next Year.  "Winnipeg Free Press :   Anyone who  happened to enter the Manitoba hotel  c rotunda   last   evening    might    have  thouglit that an exciting election was  in  progress,   or that  Winnipeg had  l-egained that commercial activity that  was   characteristic ot boom days���������or  being familiar with the current events  he would have realized what'a  momentous thing the construction of the  Crow's Nest Pass Railway  is to the  Western country.    The spacious rotunda was filled with people who had  different questions to discuss with M.  J. Hanev. chief of construction, who  arrived from the east the other day.  There were contractors who, although  they knew in advance what Mr. Ilaney  would tell them, h.'.'! to see him; there  were commercial men  who, although  they knew Mr. Haney wtis doing no  business while here, had something to  sell"   him;   there were office seekers  ,    who, although they knew Mr. Haney  had no positions to oilier until he organized at Macleod. had to remind him  that they were idle���������and there- -were  others.   In the last mentioned classification,   which   included  people with  widely   different  missions",  came, the  newspaper men.  Mr. Hauey received the Free Press  representative verv cordially and was  very gracious with his time, assuring  the scribe that there was no hurry  whatever.  ���������' Yes," he said, in answer to the  reDorter's first remark. " 1 think every  person realizes what a great thing the  construction of the road is to this  country. The question of supplies is  one of tbe most, impoilant for the  present. It is mir policy to get every-  . ._ .thing we can from tlii-. Section of the  country. Tiieire~wiiiiie-a��������� large -number of men at work, and the supplies  for them will be large. Our-lumber  -will. I think, be purchased chiefly in  in British Columbia on account of" the  locality.  "I proceed to Macleod tomorrow  driving trom Lethbridge on Sunday,  and on Tuesday the tenders for tlie  first 50 miles will be opened and ' tbe  contracts for the era ding' let. We  have divided the line into, five mile  sections and any contractor can have  several sections, or a fraction of one,  according to what he can handle. The  contracts for the second 50 miles will  .beletejQThiit.stl.lv. The work will  commence next Tuesday and in a few  days after that will lit* i'i progress all  along the line. We will push matters'  all we can so as to have the lirst 100  utiles completed by about the end of  Octcbc-r. This will take us over the  summit of the first mountains and as  mountain work can.be proceeded with  duirng the winter there will be no let  up until tin- work is completed. It  will be completed a= soon as it is practicable, which I think means in the  fall of *fi~. But we mav encounter unanticipated obstacles'to quick construction and the work may be delayed longer. However we have adopted  every means_ of pushing it through.  There are eight engineering parties  at work now and -while the construction of the first 100 miles is tinder wav  the whole route will be surveyed/ I  have not yet seen the survevs for that  part of the route that the "engineers  have been over, so as yet can give no  estimate of the amount of bridging or  masonry required. In the mountains  there are alternate routes and we will  not decide upon which is to be followed until all have been surveyed."  Mr. Haney.who is an ideal subject for  a reporter's queries, then asked if there  ���������was any other information he eoulel  impart and as there was not the reporter withdrew to make wav for a  few more contractors.  Mr. Hanr-y is accompanied by Mrs.'  Haney and his secrr-tarv. He will organize his office staff at Macleod. He  is doing no business in the city,..and  will do none until he arrives at his  headquarters.  Contractors here seem to be going  on the idea that there is any amount  of work to be done and that everyone  will get a slice of it. jUthouph no contracts will be let until Tuesday supplies are being bought and a small  armv of contractors and men are making arrangempnts to go West immediately. G. W. "Strevel's outfit will  occupy a special train of 18 cars which  will be loaded earlv this morning. Besides a complete grading outfit he has  forty teams and a hundred men who  will go West- with the train today.and  he expects to commence grading on  Tuesday,  I  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson  THE PATRIOTIC PRIDE  OF EIGHT   OF   THE ALDERMEN  OF OTTAW".  Prompts Them to Resign Because the  Majority of the Council Purchased  American Fire Engines.    -  OttjVWA, July 12.���������A great municipal sensation has been created here  by the resignation of eight aldermen  of the city as a protest against the  purchase of two United States steam  lire engines in preference to Canadian  engines. The Waterous Engine Co.,  of Brantford, are willing to put their  engine against any United States  engine, but the majority of the council put the Yankee'deal" through. The  minority challenge the others to test  the matter at the polls.  PARTING WORDS  Mgr. Merry del Val's Letter to Archbishop Langevin���������Catholics Must Suspend Discussion  ������ The following is the full text of Mgr.  Merry del Val's parting open letter to  Archbishop Langevin. of St, Boniface,  dealing with the Manitoba school  question. The letter vras read in the  Roman Catholic churches yesterday: '  Ottawa, July 3rd, 1S97.  '' My Loud���������On tho eve of my departure from Canada for the Eternal city,  where-I soon expect-to���������place_in_the_  august hands of His Holiness the results of my investigations and my labours, I desire to address a word to  your lordship, as you are the bishop  most immediately concerned in the  question which wtis the principal object of my mission, and in so doing. I  take the opportunity of addressing all  the Catholics.  At the outset, my lord, permit me to  say that it is with feelings of respect  .and devotion that I offer, from tho  bottom of my heart, to all the archbishops and bishops of the Dominion  a sincere expression of appreciation  for the kindness of which their lordships have given so many signal  proofs. My thanks are also clue to the  members eif the clergy, and to the  faithful of the various dioceses, for the  cordial and touching welcome which  they haye everywhere and at all times  granted me. 1 regret that the opportunity is not given meyto express to  each one that which my heart feels so  profoundly.        *     y  I have also to make reference to the  great courtesy shown me by, the civil  authorities, and. I take! this opportunity of extending to them the testimony of my gratitude and of my respect."- ���������'���������,���������**: ��������� ������������������.���������ii,,;- ������������������-���������- ,  ;.- We can scarcely hope that the holy  work of peace and justice, desired by  the Holy See, by and all of us, will be  fully realized. In this connection, I  may assure your lordship that His  Holiness himself, will, before very  long;- publish a decision, and indicate  to Canadian Catholics the line of conduct which they are to follow under  the present conditions.  The Holy Father has availed himself  of all the sources of information.^and.  unless wo wish to hide the truth, it is  impossible to doubt that he will be  perfectly informed on the facts and  the circumstances surrounding them.  In the interval, however, there remains an imperative duty on all, and  in the exercise or niy functions I am  obliged to inculcate the duty in a formal manner,'with-,the, certainty that  the bishops and clergy, devoted as  they are to the Holy See, will see to  its proper carrying out,- on the part of  the faithful. This duty is that they desist entirely from all agitation, forget  all divisions and resentments and suspend all discussions. .  Things have entered, in so far as Catholics are concerned, an entirely new  phase, by the single fact of the direct  intervention of the Sqvsriegn Pontiff.  With him it remains today to finally  determine their obligations by knowledge of the religious side of this question, and it is not for us, not for any  one to anticipate his judgment, and  his action on the matter.  It should be quite evident to all good  Catholics that they cannot invoke nor  , sustain the authority of the Supreme  Pastor by belittling that of the bis-  ops, ' and that on the other hand they  weaken the episcopal authority if they  interfere, even indirectly, with the  free exercise of that of the head of the  church.  I' or my own part, my lord, I have  seen too much to esteem in the Catholics of Canada, and to admire their  \ irtu.es, to doubt whether they will  not rejoice in having" left to the vicar  of Jesus Christ, with submission anil  confidence, the right to look after  their religious interests, firmly persuaded that his direction will be the holiest and the wisest.  Will your lordship permit rae to express the assurance of my esteem and  my sincere attachment, and to express  my ardent desire of seeing prosper, under the divine guidance, tho people of  Manitoba, the object of your zeal, your  labours and your prayers.  I am  Your Lordship's most devoted servant  in our Lord,  Raphael Merry Del Val,  Apostolic Delegate.  To His Lordship  Adclord Langevin.  Archbishop of St. Boniface.

Henley, July 12���������The regatta which  begins on Wednesday bids fair to be a  record one in this record year as far as  the number ot spectators is concerned.  Henley certainly has never been so  full as-it will-be next week at the_last  social function o������ this memorable  season.  As usual, the first of the oarsmen to  appear here were the foreigners; this  time the Winnipeg crew, who have  been well " received and created a  marked impression, though their style  is freely criticized as being  "ragged."  The entries for the Stewards' challenge cup are : Leanders, London, R.  C, (holders); New Collpge. Oxford;  Thames, R. C, Trinity Hall, Cambridge; Utricht University, It. C,  Triton, and Winnipeg, R.C., Canada.  Some exciting lacing may be expected from one of tbe fours, that of  Leauder. They row with great life, are  not the least unsteady,- and are generally admitted to be what Winnipeg  has most to fear.  THE  WINNIPEG FOUR  London, July 12.���������The four oared  crew from Winnipeg stand a good  chance of beating the Utrecht University (Dutch) four, against whom they  are drawn in the 1st heat in the four  oared race of Henley regatta. In this  case the race should be between the  Winnipeg men and London crew. The  Winnipeg boys with their short, jerky  stroke are still the subiecfc of much  criticism, but they themselves feel confident.  * ,  ,  A METAMORPHOSIS.  CHAMBERLAIN'S PLAN  COLONIAL    REPRESENTATIVES,  "IN HOUSE OF LORDS  Sir Donald's Elevation to the Peerage a  Part of the Scheme���������To, Organize  the Agents General  London, July 12,���������The Daily Chronicle says: Mr.- Chamberlain, finding  his plan for Colonial representation in  the House of Commons is out of the  question, wants Canada, Australia  and South Africa each to have a rep-  resentative in the'House of Lords, and"  for this reason wished Sir Donald  Smith, Canadian High Commissioner,  raised to the peerage.  Mr. Chamberlain hopes that when  the Premiers have returned home and  consulted their Governments they  will arrange for the nomination of  these repicsentatives. Mr. Chamberlain also hepes eventually to constitute  the Colonial Agents General ipto a sort  of Advisory Council, meeting regularly at the Colonial Oflice and giving  the Colonial Secretary the benelit of  their council.     **���������  DESERTED  Oh, he preached it from the housetops,  and he whispered it by stealth;  He wrote whole miles of stuff against  the awful curse of wealth.  He shouted for the poor man, and he  called the rich man down;  He roasted everyyking and queen who  dared to wear a crown.  He hollered for a rebellion, and he said  he'd head a band  To  exterminate  the  millionaires, to  sweep them from the land.  He yelled' against  monopolies,   took  shots at every trust, ......  And he swore he'd be an anarchist,  to  grind them in the dust.  He stormed, he fumed, he ranted, till  he made the rich man wince :  But an uncle left him money, and he  hasn't shouted since.

'Twas silent and lonely, and feelings of  sadness  Came over my heart for the friends  who had gone  From their pioneer home erected with  gladness,  For bright were the hopes they had  huildcd upon.

I. am  assured on all sides that those  interests comprise some of the. most  valuable'properties yet discovered in  the province.    I have reason to believe  that,  with  proper  management  some  of those properties may bu converted  into   mines "which   will rank  tis   the  largest producers of high grade ores  in  the country.   As nothing   can be  more  beneficial   to  the interest of the  province in  the London market than  the establishment   of producing and  dividend-paying  mines, it  is   my   intention during the next few  weeks to  devote the  whole of my time to the  development of these properties,  " Mr,   Ross,   the    well-known   contractor of Toronto, together with my  company's engineers are now surveying   and  preparing   estimates   for  a  wagon   road  which   will be some  25  miles in length.   The largest amount  of labor will he utilized feir the  speedy  building of this road, and  I anticipate  it  will   be   completed   Hy the end of  September, and that by Christmas we  can ship about a thousand tons of ore.  It is my belief that this ore will average- at least $100. a ton, and, if all  my  anticipations are realized, such realization   will   do' more   to benefit   the  London market than any other means  which   could   be;; adopted.   There, are  many   other     important    operations  which _ have to be carried out in and  around   Albert  Canyon,   but   in   the  meantime it is premature for me to  mention them."
