This change has been  rendered necessary by the very gratifying pressure on our space by our  adverl.iseis, gratifying in a double  way as pointing to a large increase in  the business of the town in the few  short months, during which the Hkrald has been in existence, as well as  to the fact that our business men both  new and old, realize the value of our  paper as a medium whereby to reach  their customers in Noith Kootenay.  At the same time our subscription list  has been'steadily increasing month by  month and the most cordial testimonials of the value of the Herald to all  classes of the community have been  received from every quarter, from  some, we may add from which they  were hardly expected. AVe thought  when we came here that there was  room for the HeRjVLD in Revelstoke  and our decision has been amply grata  fied. We thought, Itevelstoke had the.  appearance of a place that was bound  to go ahead, and it has certainly inl  filled our anticipations and will with  out a doubt continue to do so. We  believe further, that as Kootenay advances, there will eventually be.no  better location for the publication- of  a large and influential daily paper in  the interior of British Columbia than  at this point. -The evolution of tho  Herald into exactly such a sheet is  the goal of our ambition, to which we  intend to advance along with ��������� the  gradual progress of the * town and  countrv.  NO 492_J PARALLEL ?  .  Mottoes on an'ultimate analysis will  generally yield abouto per cent, soiinel  sentiment and Oo per cent, gush. .The  motto ,"No" ������h -parallel here,"  carried in procession at Rossland last  Monday, is the same as tlie rest, only  more so. It is perfectly true that as  far as the citizens of the United States  engaged in mining or other business  in Kootenay are concerned, there is no  -19 parallel. In common with either  aliens they enjoy the' full benefits* of  tlie"liTimane audTivilizec" policy- tow-  tirds foreigners which Canada, following the traditional example- of the  mother country, has adopted, and in  spite of most exceptional provocation  on the part of her next door neighbor,  still continues to carry out. The dignity anil sober-mindedness ofthe policy of the Dominion in face of the childish freaks of " the greatest nation on  earth," across,her boundary, *s just  one of those gratifying features, which  inspire those who love her with the  conviction that a great and splendid  future awaits her. But there is no sign  so far that her immediate neighbors in  the state of Washington are showing  any sense of gratitude for favors received. That they are for instance ab-  rogating.their own exclusive and Chinese laws in favour of Canadian prospectors and miners. Nothing of the"  kind has even been mooted.  On the other hand, iu the east "the  federal laws against aliens are being  supplemented by state legislation and  municipal regulations. A law came  into force on the first of July in Pennsylvania fining foreigners 3cents a day  for every day they work in tho state.  The City of Niagara Falls threatens to  deprive the Gorge Electric Railway of  its charter unless within 30 days it  dismisses every Canadian in its employ. But the most impudent attempt  to bonus American labor at the direct  expense of our own comes from Washington where it has' been agreed to  admit lumber cut. in New Brunswick  by American citizens free provided it  is cut by American workmen I Affairs  sometimes reach a point, nt which  forbearance ceases to be a virtue. It  arrives, when a nation, whose sumptuary legislation is fast reccdimr into the  barbarism of the iniddlo iiges,"endc*av-  oi-s openly to enforce its antiquated  ideas among 11 friendly people imbued  with the enlightenment, afforded both  by reason and experience*, iu its international relations.  NOTE AND COMMENT  -It seems to the Herald that the  attitude of the fallen women in tiiis  town is one that calls for remark.  They are, to put it mildly, 11 good deal  too much in" evidence. JU is possible  they may be a necessary evil. The  Hkrald does not intend to discuss  the point. At all .events practically  speaking, they ate entirely under the  control of the police, being continually  amenable to the law. and therefore, if  tolerated, capable of being regulated.  This being the case and this place* having now emerged out of the primitive  conditions surrounding the rise of iv  Western lown, the Herald considers  that it would be distinctly to the benefit of the community if these women  were required to keep to the seclusion  of their own places of residence.  Places of public resent should not be  open to their'shameless self advertisement. The number ot families residing  in this place'is increasing every week.  We owe it to our women that they  shall bo able to promenade our streets  without outrage to their feelings. We  owe it to the rising generation of  maidenhood growing up in our midst  that vice shall not. ho allowed to flaunt  itself in the alluring garb of gaiety  and freedom, but shall be presented to  their minds as the-- subject of ignominious discipline and restraint. - This  matter--should bei grappled with at  once. Further toleration will not  make it any easier to handle in future.  THE JUBILEE TWELFTH  HOW OUR ORANGEMEN CELEBRATED THE GLORIOUS  DAY  - A'despntch from 'VictoriiVxjfivps;-the.  white, population* of - the mainland ns  gathered from figures obtained from  the Williams' directory to be 7S,85(),  or double what il was four years ago.  Thei population of the .island is set  down at 3S.500 or less than half. These  figures, if even only 'approximately  correct shew how imperative it is that  the mainland should form some connected plan of action with regard to  the next redistribution of seats. Two-  thirds of the seats in the local house  should belong to us and we ought to  take vigorous measures'to see that, we  get them. Planks nnd platforms are  all_very_well.--~.But-here-is-sometliing  that demands immediate action. Some  kind of central convention of those  opposed to the Turner government  should be called tit once and an agreement 011 this important matter should  be the principal object of the meeting.  How far directories can be taken as  a basis of calculating the population  the Herald is uncertain. The facts  are these. A type-written copy of the  sheets for Itevelstoke and neighboring  points was sent to this oflice recently  for inspection from either tho Williams or Henderson Directory, there  was nothing to shew which. The  Revelstoke list contained only 370  names and it was no difficulty to red  pencil in 50 more without leaving the  office. Names of such well known  residents as C. II. Temple, J. D. Sibbald, P. R. Peterson nnd Fred Fraser  were all omitted. .Assuming then that  it is not at all unlikely that a little  search would reveal at least 30 more  omissions, and doubling the number,  470, in order to take"in the women  and children, a conservative basis" of  calculation, we arrive at a population  of about 1000 for Revelstoke, wliich it  is quite likely is under rather than  over the mark. To this must be added  the uuknown^but considerable quantity, the Chinese population.  The Spokesman-Review, says that  the framers of the amendments to the  B. C. Mining act know no more about  mining than a cat knows about the  force of powder. The allusion to cats  is particularly happy. They know  something about wildcats all right  enough, especially the interesting  variety whose habitat is Spokane.  Some of them have helped to nourish  a little kitten or two themselves. The  province has legislated with n view of  confining these animals, as far as possible, in future to their native heathe.f,  ind means to stay by it. It is it thousand pities we did not have the necessary legislation to keep them out of  Kootenay two years ago.  Processions, Speeches, Sports, Races  and Dancing.���������Splendid Weather and  a Most Enjoyable Day.���������A Full Description of the Various Events of the  Day.  The Revelstoke Orange lodge, assisted by visiting biethren from-Salmon  Arm, celebrated tho great anniversary  of their older in'old fashioned style on  Monday. The proceedings commenced  with 11 parade of the lodge with band  and banners to the station to meet tlie  visitors, whom they escorted back to  the lodge room with due honots. At  10 a. m. the grand parade through the  town took place. Headed by Mr. J.  Shaw, who, in a splendid and accurate  costtyne and mounted on the traditional white horse, made a very satisfactory representative of the great champion of constitutional libeity, the  procession moved through the streets  to the music of the Revelstoke band,  wliich was relieved at intervals by a  small drum and life band belonging to  the Salmon Arm loelge. A splendid  banner procured from Toronto appeared for the-first time in public and  added considerably to the effect of the  procession. Messrs. R, P, Pettipiece  ���������and McMahon acted as marshal' of  the parade. After reaching the Victoria hotel, the procession retraced its  steps" tcf*"th_'base"b"tll grounds, where,  after the appropriate three cheers were  given, the members, dispersed for  dinner.  After dinner the crowd reassembled  at a temporary platform on the base  ball ground, where they" were addressed by Rev. C. A. Procnnier, of Kaslo,  Rfiv. T. Glassford, of_Trail,-, and Rev.  *P."Mtiir,"of the Presbyterian church,  Revelstoke.. "The speeches were very  eloquent and wero'received with great  attention. Rev. C. A. Procunier took  the motto of the society. "Friendship,  Ti nth and Benevolence,*.' for his text,  commenting upon it in a very happy  ���������ind attractive manner. Rev.T. Glass-  lord spoke on the *.*. oi-k of the order  in the* past, and both his speech and  Rev. P. Muii-'s on tho " Gloiiotis Pious  and Immortal Memory," were heard  with profound interest. The procession then restarted for Front Street,  where the  .   __    _ _    jlTHLETIC. sports      . -  were instituted after three ringing  cheers had been given for the Queen  and King William. The events and  winners were as follows :  100 yards open. Chas. Wilson," 1;  R. Mellmoyle, 2.   Time, Usee.  100 yards, amateur. R. M. Smythe  1, C. XV. Smythe 2.  Long jump. Chas.

He was leading easily when  his pedal struck the bank anil on  mounting again his Saddle being  loosened, gave him another spill opposite O. B, Hiiiiie efc Co.'s store.  THE HOUSE  RACES  were not very satisfctctory. In a laudable feeling of anxiety to get np a nice  M. Pettipiece entered, (or at least tiied  tct;) three horses out of his stable. As  there were no other entries the committee decided that the snap was too  soft and called the race off.  The Quarter mile laelics' dash was,  after considerable delay, run. Miss  Turmoss winning on Pcttipiece's Baby  LaiSk, with Mrs. Buchanan seronel on  F. McCarty's Sorrel Teti.-  Aftor the races the e-itnvd adjourned  to the tenipoiai-y platl'oini on the base  ball ground wlieie in .1 beautifully  lighted anil decorated booth of evergreens the iltiiiceis. kept the ball rolling to the music of a cm net, horn and  violin, with an cice-asional selection by  the band till an early hour next morning.  The*'only cloud which marred the  sati.sfjiclii.in of the lodge during this  very successful celebration was the  failure of tho Kamloops loelge to fulfil  their acceptance of the invitation to  be present. Considering that our own  lodge wnni to Kamloops about fifty  strong last year, the discourtesy is  unpardonable. However we got along  very well without them and they missed about as enjoyable a day as this  part of thu world has seen for a long  time.  Today's Quotations in the Metal Market.

Ford discoveted that St. Peter's chutch  had been broken into and tho altar  vessels stolen. The church had been  locked since AVeelncsday evening owing  to the accident whiehr laid the reverend gentleman up on that date. Traces  of burnt matches on the floor shewed  that the robbery had been committed  whilo the church was tlark, and-marks  of hobnailed boots on the woodwork  point to a window on tlie south side as  the* means "idopteel for entrance. AVine  stains on the floor-suggest that the  thieves drank f-he wine in the cruets  before taking Iheir booty out of the  church. Tho plate stolen consisted of  two chalices, two patens and two silver  mounted cruets in an oak ease, all of  which was presented" to the church a  few weeks ago, aud a pocket set of  vessels, belonging to the Rev. F. Yolland, which were once, used by his  father and wei e greatly prized by him,  A set "of .altar vessels"belonging to St,  James, Vancouver, and which were in  Mr. Ford's private room, were for  tunately available for service next  morning.  THE LOST MINE  A Big   Find  with an   Old Time  Yarn  Behind it.  Last Saturday Alex. Douglas, J. H.  Mackenzie and Jack Leslie returned to  town packing a forty pound chunk of  rock whereby hung a talc of a big find,  w*hiclris~sTippc>s_d liey'smntytci^lear" tip"  an old time mystery. . N  Tlie find was made about twelve  miles back from the deserted village cf  Seymour, at the head of the Seymour  Arm of Shuswap Lake. This plate was  of- some importance in the Big Bend  excitement of tho sixties, as ft eight  was conveyed there by steamboats and  thenco over the divide by pack train  to Laporte on the Columbia. Iu those  days theie was a leidgo of great e\teut  diseovcieel near Seymour, fiom which,  il. is stated, that oro was even sent to  San l~r uicisco. Accoiding to cine story one of the* owucis of the claim took  sicli: anel going down to Seymour to  get attendance* tlteil theie. Meanwhile  tlie other pni tiler, le-ft alone at the  claim, is supposed to h tve taken sick  and died too. as he was never heaid of  again, so all knowledge of the location  was lost. AVhether this is ti ne or  whether the owners simply followed  the rest of the Big Benders out of the  country to Cariboo and left their claim  to anybody who wanted it, the Hi:r-  ald does not pretend to say. At all  events the rumor of a lost mine some-  wheie on Seymour Arm of Shuswap  Lake has been persistant in the province for a great number of years and  more than one elfort has been made  to le-locate it. This the prospectois,  whose names are given above,claim to  have done. They have found, according to their repot ts, a most wonderful  suiface shewing of ore. Theie are  three ledges, the middle one ot which  is 30 or 40 feet h'gh and as w iele at the  b.i������e, while it tapcis to .1 broad pavement, along which a man can walk at  the lop. The 010 is iion of two grades  a finer and a co.nser. There weie no  tracings of any pre% ions workings,  but in .1 Hide A-shaped cibin in the  vicinity were found some specimens  of the same kiml of ore and some  deciyedfur. The discovereis located  two claims, which they have named  tin* Lost Cab'ii and the Trapper. A  big chunk of the oie is on view in the  bar of the Victoi i.t hotel.

WEDNESDAY,      JULY   14,  07.  WHERE DID HE GET IT I  Mr. Tarte assured tho peoplo of  Montreal a year ago tbat he was  "no boodler," because������he "had not  2o cents to his name." A few days  ago he offered $25,000 cash[ffor a  houso in Montreal. Not only this,  but he proposed to spend $1O,0G0  more in improving it. In view of  the mysterious stories nlloat iu  connection with recent railway  deals it is only fair to himself and  tho country that Mr. Tarte should  explain how he acquired, his sudden wealth.  The stories told in Eastern  papers concerning: tho Gulician  immigrants who passed over the C.  P. R. last week en route to Manitoba aud the North AVest, must  cause serious doubt**. ;;s to the wisdom of the latest immigration  policy. The men aud women wore  linen suit", the men's "knickers"  coming scarcely to their knees.  The legs were baro and shoeless.  All wore a sorb of loose lin~n jacket  thrown over their - shoulders.  These are the materials out of  which a Canadian nationality is  to be uiadej while the sons of Canadian farmers are even now leaving tiieir native land for- tho United States when their country  needs them at home. Canada was  never intended to be made a  dumping ground for the useless  surplus population of Eastern  Europe, and there must bo something radically wrong in the policy  which fails to attract the right  kind of settlers.  -i*=���������Liberal-members-are-soruetimes-  candid at long range. Mr. Oliver,  M. P., who give3 the Government  at Ottawa just that kind of , support the Government wants, writes  to Iik own paper, the Edmonton  Bulletin, thac the Drummond  County cieal "looks very much as  if the Government wished to use  it to stand in with the GrandTrunk  as they are using the Crows Nest  Pass deal to stand iu with the Canadian Pacific." Mr. Oliver believes  in Government ownership of rail-  waysthis party leaders favour railway ownership of Governments.���������  Montreal Gazette. What will Mr.  Oliver do about it?  Tbe U. S.

London, July S.���������This evening the  Fishmonger's Company gave a banquet to tho Colonial Premiers. Sky Wilfred Laurier saiel in the course of an  effective speech, that he cordially disliked the word colony because it seemed to imply a superiority on the part  of the inhabitants of the homo country. He had no ��������� doubt but that the  time was coming when the word colony would be exchanged for another  word. Continuing lie said, he wished  ho could convey thos surplus ponula-  tion of the congealed districts in i"ng-  latid to Cauada, where there was  ample room aud abundant resources to  employ them, lu this connection lie  referred to the new railway over the  Rocky Mountains to British Columbia.

London', July 9.���������Last evening at  Hotel Cecil, the Cordwainers (Jo. gave  a banquet to the Colonial Premiers  and their wives. Right lion, Joseph  Chamberlain, in toasting thii-"British  Empire" said the Jubilee displays of  tbe army and navy were a guarantee  to the colonies, that Great Britain  would spend her all in their defence,  lie added "We hone soon to witness  the federation of Australasia which of  necessity must bo followed by federation of South African colonic*-', which  in turn woultl lead to federation of the  British Empire."  Sir Wilfred Laurier. in tlie course of  his reply said "One thing is certain,  the Colonies should either draw more  closely together in the empire: or  should separate. The choice does not  ile altogether in the mouth eif the people of the mother land. When Canada has her strength, nothing else  will satisfy her but imperial representation."  Premier Laurier goes to Paris on  July 17th. Later he* will visit Switzerland and will then return to England  to spend a few days cin London, and  will sail for home on August 10th on  the steamer Labrador.  A delegation of Colonial Premiers,  among the-rn being the Bight Hon. Sir  Wilfred Laurier, visited lion. Jos.  Chamberlain, Secretary of State;, for  the Colonies yesterelay. Among the  matters discussed was the scheme of  the Imperial Navy defence. Premier  Laurier took a very strong stand  against the treaties with the favouie-d  nation clause, and said there must eb  a change so as not to affect the trade  of the colonies. In this contention  Sir Wilfred was supported by all the  premiers. Chamberlain elid not see  his way to interfering witli the existing treaties, as Great BritainlVatl trailing advantages with the German sovereign she could not forego. There  does not appear to be any chance of  either the Colonial Secretary or the  Premiers modifying their views on  this question iind a deadlock is probable.

ROSSLAND ROUSED  Many of the Best Properties and Prospects Are Reported to have been  Jumped���������Other Happenings.  ^���������Rossland.JB_-C.-July 2.���������Great .ex-.  citement prevails in* camp tonight'  among mining brokers and tne officers  ot' the various companies. During the  recent session o������ the provincial legislature a bill was passed exacting a fee  of S1C0 from all mining companies  capitalized at $103,0-.". It seems most  of them failed to neglected the money  on or before July I, as required, anel in  consequence held no title to their  properties.  The report tonight is that many of  the best properties and ptospects  have been "jumped." and in consequence there is a-deep fouling of unrest in Rossland.  From a reliahlc source it is said that  the same thing has happened at Grand  Forks and Greenwood.  It is stated that such immense properties as the Volt-anic, Seattle* anel others have been re-staked by interested  parties.  Grand Forks, B. C. July 2.���������There  is intense excitement over the* recent  jumping of the Volcanic property and  the Coin claim near this city. Knots  of people can be seen today at every  street corner considering the ad visa-  ability nf holding a mass meeting tomorrow evening nnd forming a vig-  lance commitee for the purpose of  dealing in a summary with the  jumpers. Edward Tinsworth, who is  said to be one of the jumpers, has left  town and rumour' has it that he  showed srood judgement in doing so.

is also tho
uiolet glorious. Others have been
more sensational. Not one has seen
so gioat progress made ,in the expansion of the empire, in political development, and in the industrial, social,
intellectual aud spiritual advancement
of-the people. The statement is a
sweeping one, but it is warranted by
the record. Space is given elsewhere
in to-day's Tribune to reviews of some
of the salient features of British history for the last sixty years, especially
to territorial growth, political evolution and the march ot science. ' These
rather than exhaustive, but perusal of
them is sufficient to bring conviction
that the Victoria reign has been preeminently the golden age of British
history. An empire on which literally
the sun never sets, and which contains
one-fifth of the population and
one-lil'Lh of .the "land-area of the
world, a fact unprecedented and unapproachable. The progress of a grea t
people, calm and conservative, from a
scarcely constitutional monarchy to
advanced republicanism in less than
two generations .without a revolution
or any sudden upheaval, but with the
.smoothness and continuity of tho procession of tho equinoxes is one of the
most impressive spectacles in human
annals.' A nation warlike on occasion
nnd aggressive at all limes, the world's
past master in manufacturing and shop
keeping, in commerce and finance, yet
above these material things attaining
the foremost rank in science nnd literature nnd a creditable standing in tho
ilnc arts and all social culture, is a
combination of the useful and the
beautiful approximating to the highest known attainments of human
genius. , .
There is indeed not one benencient
sphere of human action in wliich its
record is not nobly made. It has been
an era worthy of -tho great Anglo-
Saxon race at its best estate, and
worthy of commanding prominence in
the now closing cycle, which succeeding generations the woild over, 'far on
in the summers that we thall not see.
will mark m glowing annals tis the
best in all these sixty centuries ol recorded time."

it had been found necessary for the
better working of lhe Rocky "Mountain

to make Golden the divisional point,
and to establish workshops there.
Consequently tho workshops will have

this purpose. It is also understood
that the C.P.R. shops at Canmoie

Ottawa Citizen: The Winnipeg Tribune thinks Mr. Greenway should be
knighted. So he should if the grade is
to be brought into contempt, Greenway is a rough, raw, and uncouth
westerner; a politician of the lowest
type, without distinction, refinement,
or intellectual gifts of any kind. Ills
success has been gained by the baser
acts of eleniagogism and worse. Let
him enjoy_ it such as it is, without
making him nnd knighthood ridiculous.

His strange demeanour w.is unaccountable, as he aDpe��ared to be otherwise

gradually undermined his system, and
recently his mental faculties gave way
completely, and he had to be placed

Tho Golden lira is out with a Liberal
policy for this province that makes
one's head swim to read it over. It
ranges from government ownership of
railwifys and 1 olograph lines to a
vigorous policy of trail construction.
"Iiu-h, if not everything, whicli our
contemporary ml vocal es, is excellent
tuitl should form tlie goal lo which
future legislation in British Columbia
should tend. But it, is too big a bill of
faro to be assimilated at one gulp.
The main thing just now is tei secure a
fair redistribution of the franchise,
whicli will give the mainland, the
most progri'bMve portion of the province, her proper preponderance in its
a Uf airs and set British Columbia free
from the ant.ia.ualed methods of government at present in vogue at
Victoria. Wo shall then .create* an
atmosphere in the local house* in which
tho reforms in property tenure, taxation and government control of
national enterprises, so successfully
instituted in Aust.-alia and New Zealand, can be discussed with advantage.
Speaking at Kamloops the othei
night Hewitt Bostock declared lhat
" while the government had undertaken several schemes involving-large
expenditures, there had been strict,
adherence lo the policy of retrenchment in every department, where
savings could be effected without injury to the public service." Particularly it. is to be pi-i-sumod in the Post
office, wliich as he informed the
Golden Era, has dt-i-idod not to increase
the mail service* into East Koolenay
from motives of economy and whicli
is even now actually saving twopence
halfpenny by depriving the. peoplo of
Big Bond and Ferguson of any mail
all. This may not, be an " injury lo
the public service''but it is an injury
and insult to the public of North
Kootenay,   .
