HOGANS ALLEY  "If I only had you in God's country,  T'tl hlow the lop nf your el d head  off." They were two Americans, who  hael got into a difference of opinion in  one of our Kootenay town's. This was  the parting henediction of the particular son of freedom who had got the  worst of it. What a tremendous,  though unconscious satire, on the  glorious institutions of the "l.inel of  the free and the home of the brave."  The shackles of law, order and civilization are as galling to these children  of American liberty as it pair of  breeches to a naked Kaffir. Nay  more they have a contempt for the  people that, allows itself to he bound  down by them. These are the remnants of an effete monarchy, which  every true citizen of the "fair land of  liberty" is bound to despise. God's  country is the place where every man  is free to   blow  off   the   top   of  his  neighbor's  d d head,  none daring  to make him afraid. It galls his pride  to know that if he makes any such  necessary assertion of his -"personal  rights in Canada, he will most surely  be hung. . ,   _. _  The most absurd thing in the, whole  gamut of modern hypocrisy is to hear  some American literary man or professor protesting., that there is .no  hatred of England among the better  classes of the.United States.l There is,  it is true, no such feeding among the  better classes as there is to be found  Heavy and.

The hotter classes  content themselves with regarding  Kngland as their "natural enemy," a  feeling which is inculcated into them  from the cradle, but is at the same  time tunpei-fd with a certain amount,  of respect, born of knowledge and  common sense. But the lower classes  do not stop there. In the unfathein-  ahle depths of their deadly ignorance  of everything on earth outside* of their  own country, the*y not" only dislike,  they actually despise her. What the*  Pope is to a Belfast Orangeman or the  aristocrats to a French Reel so is England to millions of the-,half-ediicated,  half-barbarous . inhabitants of the  United States. -  These people hold the balance of  power in their country. 'Their tricky,  band to mouth politicians have been  in the habit of plying up to the*ii, regarding it'as a safe and. paying game.  It is no longer safe. Some day it will  plunge the two peoples into war. The  mistake England-and Canada have  always made hitherto is the too good-  natured feeling with, which these  nionkey tricks have been accepted.  All uncivilized -and- half civilized  nations regard good- nature as a sign  of weakness.' It is best' for all concerned in the long run ,to treat such  people.with a severe firmness. Signs  are visible that both-in England and  Canada our statesmen are awakening  to this fact, and that,' the antics of the  American-politicians will no longer be  tolerated in r_onr international iilT.iii-s.  Such a course will be* found to ha ultimately the best for all the parties concerned.  DR.  R.

A correspondent of the Herald, a  practical miner, gives ns a description  of the actual state of" affairs at the  Orphan Boy claim, based on a personal visit. The No. 1, eji- upper, tunnel,  is in 101 feet by_ actual'measurement.  It ciits'flie-qtiart'z ledge*,���������which' bits*a  north-westerly., trend of -45 degrees,  close to the month. The lower tunnel,  which is in about 38 feet, will have to  be run another 150 feet to ,catch this  ledge, granting for the sake of argument that it is not a blanket ledge.  There is about three tons of ore on  the dump and as much as five could  probably be picked up on the claim,  taking in float and what was -blown  out of the prospecting hole, which the  prospectors "called the .shaft. The  effect of a personal visit to tbe claim  on the mind of our correspondent was  one of considerable surprise, an effect,  which the_HEi*A"_p. understands it also  GIVE CAPITAL A SHOW  A Grand Forks Prospector thus Voices  the Sentiment.

ABOUT ILLECILLEWAET  The Past, Present and   Future   of  this  Populrr Camp.  Illecillewaet, Aug. 27.���������The nucleus of a mining town, altitude 3,000  feet above sea level, on the main line  of the C. P. R. It is pleasantly situated and supplied with the purest of  water from several creeks, and is one  of the healthiest towns in British Columbia. It has the distinction of being the first shipper of ore in British  Columbia. Ten years ago it was a  place of importance, owing to the  uumbers of men employed hy the Lanark company, under the able supeiin-  tendence of G. B. Wright. Since then  it has passed through many vicissitudes and is today on as solid a basis  as any town in the province. There  are three hotels, all doing a good busi  ness, a geneial store, where all the  needs ' of the miners, prospectors or  families can be supplied at a moderate  rate, a postoffice*,' money order and  express office and mining recorder's  office. Every facility is here offered  for the capitalist and stranger. The  church, which serves the double purpose of church and school, was built a  few years ago.  In the immediate vicinity of the  town several claims are being developed, with good showing, and as soon  as they become shippers a new* era will  he the result. ,   ~  One hundred and thirty-four mineral  claims have heen recorded within the  year, and several mining properties  have changed hands of late.  A happy event took place in the  Merchants', hotel, Illecillewaet, on  Tuesday night, when Thomas James  and Molly Bisset were united in matrimony. Rev. J. Muir officiated. The  bride, who looked charming, wore a  dress of cream crepon trimmed with  pearls, cream lace and ribbons. - Miss  Macleod, the bridesmaid,looked sweetly.pretty in white, with trimmings of  butter lace and ribbons to match.  Both carrieel bouquets of inargueriles,  with h.-indsoine whjt'e ribbon mi-earners. A recherche supper was enjoyed  in=lhe~"iining room, which was'-pro-  fusely decorated with floweis -and  evergreens. The bridesseake, a present  from chef Jim, was a genuine work of  art. The presents were numerous and  costly, testifying to the high regard in  which the contracting parties are  held.  The Kamloops Challenge.   '  The Revelstoke "Golel Hills" have  not ns yet announced their intention of  acting up,,to the challenge made thu  Kamloops team through the HeRjVld  and accepted' by the latter on conditions set forth in the Sentiiu-1 of Tuesday last. Can it be that the "Gold  Hills" bole! challenge was only a bluff?  ���������Kamloops Sentinel.  [The Gold Hills, after waiting for a  response to their challenge, have dispersed all over the country. Some are  in the Big Bend, some in the Lardeau,  and some* ai c in the States. Ours is 11  floating population, as far as our basu-  hall players are concerned, and it  would be impossible to collect together  a nine out of the team, who played in  the three previous matches with Kamloops.���������Ed.

Great complaints are being made by  merchants and carters of the condition  of the road to the freight shed. It is  almost impossible to get in or out with  a load without breaking a waggon.  The distance from Second street to  the freight shod is very trilling and ������.  gooel road could easily be made.  " Mr. Robt.

The mother  and sister of deceased met the body  here and accompanied it back.  Now Denver Ledge: The present  silver panic will benefit the silver  cause. It will force some decisive  action to be -taken, and whatever it  may he it must result favorably to the  white metal. The civilized world  never done without silver as a money  metal anil it never will. When the  reaction does come silveV; will quickly  be restored to its time honored position as the best money metal.  A correspondent from Trout LuLe  City writes about the big gold strike  on Gainer creek as follows: Big excitement here over the gold find at  the head of Gainer creek. There is no  question but that it is bona fide. The  lust assay I saw from it i-un $3,000 in  'gold. The lead is improving;, in size  and l-'t-hness, and I think we will soon  have a Klondike at home. A very  rich new strike was made near the  big glacier, about 3 inilt_s south of  Trout Lake today by S. J. Gr.iham.  An assay from surface went 718 oz.  silver and $0 in gold. The country  sec-ins to be all right independent of  tin.' slump hi silver.*  The Silver Market.-  New" York, Aug. 27:-Bar silver, 5lj  $3.<j0; Copper, $11.14.,       '  Lead  The C. P. R. and Rossland.  In   a  meeting   of Rossland business1  anel  mining   men , held   last-Tuesclay" ,,  uight   Vice    President   Shaiighnessy  addressed   the  meeting..  He said - he' ..  was in Rossland two years ago when:  the 'Le Roi and War Eagle.were the"  only twoinines much spoken of.-,*-He" -  had"*-talked   with   a representative of-  the Kansas City Smelting company at-  the  time about building a'smelter on'  the Columbia river..They first thought- .  of Arrowhead  as the.right place, and;  then Nakusp, and finally   Robson  was-  chosen, but the   Rosslaud ores"were so'  little  understood  that  it was finally  decided it would not-be safe to build;_  the   smelter  at' that lime.   Later orr"  Mr. Heinze   came   into   the field  andV  built a smelter and a nilroad, and had*  invested a large sum of money..       _c - .  Jlr. Heinze had come to bird in Mon-"  treal last-winter and asked-if-the C.-P.-^  R. would object if he built a road up"  to Robson.   He said the C. P. R.would*, "  not object, but that Rossland was 11*.  C.P.R. territory and that the company  .would not allow anything to stand iri  the   way  of its making such rates to"  Rossltiud  in   the  future   as it might  best.  "The C. P. R. is a powerfnl com-*  pany," he continued, "and we do not*  wtint to come in and crush Mr. Heinze.-  At the same time I will say to yoii we'  are going to see that Rossland ores are*,  smelted in British Columbia. I hoped'  to meet Mr. Ileinze here and have art'  understanding with him. I can not-  now make any definite announcement,'  but my mind is made up as to some"  things, and when I get back home anej  see our directors I think wo shall be/  able to say something, and that some-'  thing will be satisfactory to Rossland."'  (Great applause.)  COKE FOR 96 Ptelt TON".  Mr. Shaughnessy then went into the*  question of fuel supply.) He thought**"  Robson would be the smelting point  for the Rossland camp and he thought'  he could promise that the Crow's Nest"  line would lie completed- to Robson by  September 1,1808, and that coke eoulel  be laid down at Robson at $3 or $5.50'  per ton. This last statement was re-"  ceived with iiiuchenfhusiain.  Jlr.' Shaughnessy's speech Was ac-"  cepted as a-satisfactory assurance that*  the C. P. R. means to come into Rossland.  The Silver Cup mine, in the Eiardea'i*  district, has let a contract for shipment of 400 tons to the smelter. The"  owners claim tbat the ore'w'iH average"  700 ounces of silver to the ton.���������New-  Denver Ledge'. ,  A. M. Be.tttie says'there is cbtisicler--  able talk of the Edmonton* route to".

HIE    COLONIES    AND    THE  NA VI'  The sixtieth anniversary of  the accession of Queen Victoria to  the British throne has been  rendered remarkable above all  precedent by the gorgeous nature  of the pageant, the intense loyalty  evinced by the nation, and the  magnificent exhibition of British  naval powers at the Portsmouth  review. Any one of these in itself  would have sufficed to reader tlie  occasion memorable, autl, taken in  conjunction, they could not but  impress the civilized world with  the fact that Great Britain is at  the present day���������as she was in  1S15, after the battle of Waterloo  ���������the greatest factor, for gootl or  evil, for peace or war, in the  world; that she is, in every sense  of the word, a ''world-power.''  Furthermore, the nature of the  celebration thrust into prominence  the significant fact that, above all  else, the British Empire of today  is a colonial empire. The presence  of the premiers of the self  governing colonies was a testimony to the administrative  methods adopted by the mother  land. The unique spectacle  afforded by the representatives of  the military forces of the various  colonies aud dependencies���������that  processiou wherein marched  together the Negroes of the West  India Regiment, the Mongolian  Hong Kong Police and the Maori  _ of Xew Zealand, side by side witli  "-ttis't:ralian and "Canaclian regiments���������was an exhibition of  military strength which no other  nation iu ancient or modern times  could approach. In short the  Jubilee celebration was world embracing, aud that world is  England's world.  Shortly before the Jubilee, the  House of Assembly at Cape Town,  had by a unanimous vote passed a  motion that the time had arrived  when steps should be taken to  arrange some basis of contribution  by Cape Colony toward the  Imperial Navy. This motion, it is  worthy of note, received the warm  support of Messrs. Hofmerr and  Lehreiner���������the two most promi"  neut and influential of the Dutch  members. Sir Gordon Sprigg, the  Cape premier, came to England to  take part in. the Jubilee celebrations, and as a result of the motion  passed iu the Cape Assembly, the  First Lord of tlie Admiralty at a  banciuet at the St. George's Club.  -London, made the announcement:  "Today I received the present of  an ironclad at the hands of a  British colouy!"' Cape Colony, as  a matter of fact, has presented the  British Empire with a battleship  of the firstclass order, and tlie gift  is absolutely unhampered by conditions. The feeling of gratification with which tliis practical  avowal of generous loyalty will be  regarded "is necessarily deepened  by the fact that the Cape  Assembly is composed largely of  Dutch member.-, representing  Dutch constituencies, and that an  independent member brought the  project forward.  This action of the Cape Government is not the first contribution  which the colonies have made  towards Imperial defence. Some  10 years ago Australia undertook  to bear jointly with the home  government    the    cost    of    the  UME  & COMPANY  Agenta :  RAM LAL'S TEA  Wholesale  erchant;  Retail  Agents :  Victoria Powder Co.  >ound for the Hills  Prospectors and miners should not leave for the hills without having a look at this stock.

The Australians believed  that "local interests can best be  defended locally," but during the  ���������years that have elapsed since the  Australian auxiliary squadron  was established the principles of  naval strategy have developed  rapidly and naval experts ' all  agree that such a theory is erroneous. The Cape Government have  not attached any such restriction  to their gift, and this broad minded attitude makes their action ail  the more worthy of remark.  It would not be possible lo suggest an expedient by which the  recognition of the common interests aud the common obligations  of the colonies aud the mother  country could be more clearly  uotified to the world, than by the  action of Cape Colony. That the  maintenance of the.-Pax Britan-  uica io the profound desire of all  the various members of the Empire need not be insisted on. But,  as the London Standard =ays.

Below will he found au interesting  account of construction work and incidents on the line of the Crows Nest,  with the courtesy of the Calgary  Herald :  Southern Alberta is at present one  of the busiest parts of Canada, and  Thk Herald is the first newspaper to  send a representative to write, up construction news and other matters  connected with the new route. Two  things which struck our commissioner  were that both East and West Kootenay will have, on the completion of the  Crow's Nest line, a remarkably easy  means of communication with the  east, the grades being no higher than  one per cent; and that Alberta will for  the next two years, and it is hoped permanently, enjoy an uninterrupted run  of prosperity as a result of the money  spent in construction and the opening  up of the new route to our nearest and  most profitable market.  PACTS ABOUT THE WORK  An interview with Mr. M. J. Haney.  the chief of construction, who is a most  courteous and approachable gentleman, brought out 'some interesting  particulars. There are at present  about 3,000 men and SOO teams engaged in building the railway. Tho  contractors and the number of miles  taken by each are given below :  G. H. Strevel'. 10 miles  Wm. Dohemy 35     "  Neil Keith........  Jas, McCrimmon.  J. D. McArthur...  D. McGillivray ...  -    Ed. Egan  a   -"  Hugh Mann...'. 5   , "  Mayor Bowles  5 " " ���������  J. XV. Buchanan ...... 5   ."  Grading was begun simultaneously  nearly all along the route as surveyed  and pegged out by the engineers from  Lethoridge to the summit of the  mountains. The first ten miles from  Lethbridge is about finished and  tracklaying will commence immediately. The bridge constructors are  alreadv at work pile driving and building stone piers.' The longest bridge on  tbe line will be that over the St. Mary's  river. It will bo 3,000 feet long and  will be built on piles. * In reply to *a  remark of The Hekald representative  that this would take many weeks to  complete, Mr. Haney said it would  be ready for the rails in ten days. The  bridges will be built of timber at first,  (.o be replaced with steel-structures  later on. _     ,.--"__'���������  BEADY  IN NOVEMBER  Mr. Haney and Mr. Lumsden expressed the opinion that the railway  will be finished into the Iiockies by  November���������about 125 miles. Supplies  are being taken to .the mountains so  that work may be continued where  possible during the winter. Already  the company is making a waggon road  bevond the lake in the pass, to which  a fairly good road now exists. Two  hundred men aie engaged cutting the  right-ot-way beyond the pass.  The exact route through the.-two  ranges of mountains hasjiot yet been  decided. Eight engineering parties  lire at work, and as there are several  alternative routes in the mountains it  will not be decided which is to be fol-  -"oweduhtil-all-are-surveye'dr"-*---      "-1  . A CAMP DESCRIBED  Our representative drove along tho  route of the new railway from Macleod  to the foot of the mountains, following  the grading nearly the whole distance.  Construction camps are located every  f e-.v miles. An average camp contains  a large tent for the men's dining room,  another for stores, another for the  contractor and his staff, and soveral  smaller tents for sleeping' in. The  waggons belonging to the outfit are  generally airanged in two lines-and  need for rough open air stables, the  - horses being tied to the waggon wheel  while feeding or at night, and separated by large poles. Large numbers  of wheeled scrapers, plows and other  Implements are to be seen, and there  lis always a blacksmith's shop, sometimes on wheels.  The uniform rate of wages for the  nien employed ns teamsters and labourers is $2*0 a month and board. The  company fixes this rate and prohibits  the contractors from paying either  more or less. This provision is designed as far as possible to prevent  trouble that would otherwise be caused  )>y men leaving -one contractor for  .toother. Even now trouble arises  from men deserting and the Mounted  Police arc kept busy hunting them.  Among certain classes of the men  dissatisfaction exists over tho rate ot  wages and at one camp visited forty  men walked out after receiving'their  llrst month's pay. The men had to  pay their way up from the east, but  were eiven a special rate of a cent  a mile. Men coming from Moosomin  paid $5.50 for the trip up.  Neither Mr. Haney nor any of the  contractors fear any serious trouble in  the way of a strike, as thousands of  men are ready to come from the east  and the difficulty so far has been to  keep them back.  Much of the country through which  the railway will run is rolling and in  many places cut by deep coulees which  necessitate a large amount of earth  work. Owingto the* ranges of hills which  break the country in this district, tho  line takes several curves to avoid deep  cutting.    ' ��������� ��������� ,,  The origin of tho name of the pass  through which the now railway takes  its course is commonly supposed to be  connected with the laying and  hatching receptacle of a well known  bird of sable hue. However snel the  discovery mav be to the cartoonists, it  ic only in the cause of truth to say  that the eastern ideas on tho point arc  as usual far astray.

The derivation  of the name as given by the red skin  medicine men is that a large jiarty of  Crow Indians took refuge in the pass  when pursued by their enemies the  Blackfeet, who came upon them in  their "nest" and slaughtered them to  a man.   Hence "the Crow's Nest."  MASSACRE BUTTE  There is material enough in the  Indian legends of Alberta to fill a  volume. Just to the north-west of the  grand curve made by tne Crow's Nest  railway .before it enters the ,ruoun_  tainoiis country stands iv^ conspicuous  hill, known as Massacre Butte. Many  years ago the low country between the  ltocky mountains and the Porcupine  hills formed a favourite passage for  travellers and immigrants northward  bound. It was on this -route, immediately under the butte . mentioned,  that a party of German immigrants  were massacred hy Indians. Men;  women, and children, none were  spared but a fair haired young girl,  who was taken away to the south, but  as the story runs, there was so much  quarreling over her that the chief of  the band killed her to prevent further trouble, taking her scalp, which  is said to he among the trophies of the  lato chief, " Big Sun," to this day.  Somo little timo ago there was dug up  at Pincher Creek a skeleton which the  doctor pronounced to be that of a  young female and which an old squaw  said was that of the last victim of the  tragedy at Massacre Butte.  ' Other names of places in Southern  Alberta are redolent of the cowboy,  such as Whoop Up, Stand Off, Freeze  Out. The Indian name for Pincher  Creek means High Wood and it has  been suggested that the old timers  should take advantage of the spirit of  change which is now upon the land  and call their pretty village Highwood.  AN IDEAL COUNTRT.  The district for 30 or 10 miles east of  tbe mountains in Southern Alberta is  exceedingly well favoured. As a  ranching and farming district it is  almost unrivalled. As a summer  camping ground there are few better,  The whole region is a succession of  gems of scenery���������lakes, rivers, woods,  ills, rocks and stretches of pasture  With the stately Rockies forming a  perfect background. The grazing  hero is most abundant���������in fact long  enough to furnish hay almost  anywhere.  Tho district was one of the earliest  to be settled and It is gradually filling  up with small stockmen and grain  farmers. In both these departments  of agriculture the district is as near  perfection as can be. though near the  mountains it enjoys a remarkable  immunity for summer frost, and its  rivers are large and numerous enough  to furnish water for extensive irrigation. Tho buildings of the settlers are  as a rule solid, spacious and in good  repajr, and their fields securely fenced.  THE KjVLIjS  Just where tho railway will cross  the middle fork of the Old Man's river  is a magnificent water fall. With the  roar of its tremendous fall intoa rocky  canyon there   is nothing finer even  in the mountains themselves, and this  will undoubtedly be one of the places  where the hrakeman will startle the  passengers with his yell: " Train  stops five minutes to see The Falls 1"  As TnK Herald representative was  driving throngh'this splendid country  with Mr. F. AV. Godsaf, many an inter  teresting reminiscence was recalled by  recurring 'features of the landscape.  " This," said Mr. Godsal.as we rounded  a steep side hill, once dangerous, but  now improved, "has been christened  'Agony Point.' Before the'new trail  was made we all had to get outside  and hang on to one side of the wafgon  to-keep-it from-toppling over.���������   CURIOSITIES OF NATURE.  One of the features of the district  is supplied by some curious geological  formations. At one place in the river  bank on Mr. Godsal's fine ranche a  layer of buffalo bones,' hundreds, perhaps thousands of years old, is to be  seen underlying the base of a hill, and  as the river cuts into the hank the  bones are being gradualiy washed out.  Further down the river, a cut bank  reveals the phenomenon of a stratified  formation consisting of a layer - of  buffalo bones, a layer of charcoal, a  layor of rock, then another layer or  bones.  Another mystery is supplied by a  line of immense stones which lie on  tho prairie and extend, it is said, from  Montana clear up to Calgary. They  do not belong to the country, the rock  being totally unlike any other in the  district, and the supposition is that  they were dropped thousands of years  ago by an im mouse glacier.  The Herald lepresentative being  armed with a first rate camera, took a  number of yiews of ranching, railway  construction, general scenery, some of  which, we hope, our readers may have  the opportunity in the near future of  seeing.  Among other views taken was one  of Contractor Neil Keith's outfit at  dinner time, with the horses feeding,  the men lounging around and the  scrapers standing on the dump where  the hour of noon had found them. Mr.  Keith was seen iu his fine tent and  was courteously communicative as to  theprDgress of the work. He has four  outfits at work in .and near the pass  and is confident that trains wili be  running over the first 100 miles by the  time winter sets in.

Alberta Plaindealer: A few more  kicks such as the Government has  just giveu the Yukon miner, will send  him home and keep him and his  friends there. In the meantime those  who are on the ground will fight, and,  unless we are very much mistaken the  100 policemen being sent to enforce  the new regulations will have a sorry  time. A body of 5.000 miners would  find no trouble in silencing every oflicer of the law in that country, and  rather than submit to the new regulations, they will take charge of the red  coatsandadminister law according to  their own ideas of justice.
