C. Dowsett, who has been looking  over his property investments iu Ferguson for the past week, returned to  Calgary yesterday morning.  According to the Saturday Review  one of the colonial. Premiers objected  to the. use of the word "Premier" at  all and particularly to the Prince of  Wales' French pronunciation of it.  '.' Prenii-iirs," he said, " is bad enough,  ���������Premi-ay' is worse." Why not try  the Ontario - proiiouiiciation " Pri  nicer."?  the least intending to-be guiltyStof  offensive jingoism, to discover in what  way American enter prise in C.iniidi.in  mining districts is in a great many  instances of much real benefit to Canada. South Kootenay is at present  mainly tributary, to Spokane The Le  Roi mine, our chief Kootenay shipper,  is to bo worked to build up a townsite  in the state of Washington. American  mine owners and manager's ate accused, not altogether without reason,  of favoring miners from the states to  tho exclusion of Canadians. It is  st.ited 011 good authority that $3000  goes from Laurie every month for the  wives and'families of the miners there  to spend in Spokane. Thousands of  dollars of gold dust have just been  carried out of Olondyko to San*Fian-  ciseoand Seattle, whiih might as well  have been mined in California for all  the good Canada gets out of it. In  point of fact, with fow trifling 'exceptions, the share Americans, take in  Canadian mining is carried on with a  constant eye to benefit their own  country and their own countrymen,  and as far as any'direct benefit to  Canada is concerned, might as well be  conducted by the much abused Chinese. Indirectly, of course, Americans  help to open up and advertise the  country. . They cannot, possibly help  doing so. But very few of them aro  doing anything to build it up, or show  .my disposition to apply the money  which they'll-o making in it, to the  benefit of tho "country itself. They  look upon Canada as simply 4i_placc.la  make money'in arid get out of.  Tlie remedy.for this state of things  lies very little in legislation. The continued supremacy of Spokane in South  Kootenay business is as 'much due to  the ill-advised attempt on the part of  the C. P. R. to compete-with her at  "Vancouver as anything else.' It will  not cease until Revelstoke is made,  what she ought to have been made a  couple of years ago, a terminal point.  A customs-house at the boundary between Alaska and the "Canadian territory of Yiikon.would divert much of  the trade wilh Yukon-now done in  Seattle and San Francisco to Victoria  and���������Vancouver?-���������The���������government  might perhaps supply the alleged deficiency of . skilled' Canadian mining  labor by requiring American miners  in Kootenay to become .Canatlinns  and the same rule'might perhaps be  advantageously applied to the still  more skilful Spokane mining company  and mine owner. This law jus regards  miners and prospectors might be enforced until the western raining states  shew some disposition to extend a  "most favored nation clause" to Can  adians within their limits. An export  duty on ore will be of advantage as  soon as the further, development of  our mineral resources, the completion  of the Crow's Nest railway and the institution of a Canadian mint render  the establishment of the smelting industry on a large scale on this side of  the line feasible. At present and alone  it is apparent that it would be simply  disastrous.  Canadian mining is in an incipient  stage just at present. Anything in  the wayof hasty legislation is to be  deprecated. It is more than likely to  have the effect of retarding rather  than furthering . progress. At the  same time it is just as well to let our  American cousins, who are enjoying  such exceptional favors on this side of  the line, know that Canadians have  their eyes on them, and are not altogether too well pleased with the nsc  to which they are putting them.  When the time comes, unless they  take warning, they may be made most  unpleasantly aware of the current  Canadian opinion about them.  NOTE AND COMMENT  The members of the opposition having consented to a request proceeding, they say, from representative  men in all sections of the province,  have consented to act as an Executive  Committee of the party, according to  a circular received the other day by  the Hkkald.   After  deprecating the  introduction of Dominion politics into  piovinciiil affairs, they propose: the  following platform :  1. The adjustment of tho representation of the Province on a general  principle, by which an equitable system will be established. Districts  thinly settled and remote from the  populous centres receiving a linger  proportionate representation than  those districts with .1 greater population and nearer the large cities, while  in turn those elistricts will havo a proportionately larger representation  thtin the cities of tho Province.  2. Reorganization of the civil sen ice  with a view to gi eater efficiency and  economy in administration.  3. Liberal expenditure on necessary  public works under such rigid supervision as will secure'cominensui ate  results.  4. Discouragement of Oriental immigration.  -5. The amendment of the Land Act  so that coal will be teserved along  with other minerals. Timber to be  disposed of by open.competition and  in such quantities as,,the trade demands. Agricultural lands to be teserved for actual settlers.  6. Repeal of the tax commonly  known as the Mortgage Tjx_.  7. Amendment of the law in regaid  to Free Miners' Licences, so that a  man shall not be compelled to takeout a" Free Mineis' _ Licence before he  can work" in a mine for wages.  5. Provincial aid to railways in the  past hav'ng resulted unsatisfactorily,  both as 1 egards economy in consti notion and moderation"in transportation  on charges, any future aid,to railways  to he based on efficient Provincial  control both of the raising^indexpond-  iture of tho capital and of the rates of  transportation.       '   ,        ���������  This is very well as far as it goes.  As a political programme it seems to  the Heiiald to be a rather timiel and  feeble document und to have the fault  of enumerating details r.tlher'than of  sketching a broad basis of administrative reform. Some of rthe points in  the platform ate good, sntye of- them  so good that rio'party ever appeals to  the electorate ' without" promising to  carry them out. Tho Herald would  like to see provincial ownership -of  railways take the-place of provincial  aid altogether, and the land question  handled with the idea of granting long  leases rather than patents. Of course  the Mortgage, Tax must go. Like  every enactment ever made 'intended  to hit the lender, it catches the unfortunate .borrower in the neck instead.  Working miners should, in justice to  a not particularly overpaid class of  men, bo free from taxation on their  wages.. The wonder is how such a tax  ever came to be im posed. --The first  clause concerning the redistribution of  seats the Herald would like to sec  woi-ked out into detail, so as to 6how  what changes the opposition' propose  to endorse. ' Lastly, instead of calling  themselves the opposition, why'do not  these gentlemen give their party a  name and boldly declare for Reform?  New Zealand has adopted the whole  programme, and there is not a colony  in the empire blessed with a more  generally diffused prosperity today.  The people of this -province want to  see it run, not iu the interests of  cliques, charter mongers, schemers and  monopolists, but for tho advantage of  the hard-working masses���������miners,  laborers, farmers, storekeepers, and  all men whose work, whether of head  or hand, produces and handles tho  wealth of the country. New Zealand  has found a way to make sure that  these people "eat the labors of their  hands" without paying tribute to anybody. Why cannot British" Columbia  follow in her footsteps?  FERGUSON  THE NEWS FROM THIS MINING  CENTRE  Another Reported Stiike on Silver Cup  Mountain ��������� The Horne-Payne Co.'s  Work ��������� Church Service ��������� A School  House Needed���������Lots Changing Hands  at Good Figures���������Personal and Other  News  From Our Own Correspondent.  Ferguson, July 21.���������Rev. Mr. Noiee  conducted Methodist service under  nature's canopy for the first time here  two Sundays ago. and again last Sunday. He promises to preach here  every Sunday evening for tho future,  and would like to see his people bestir,  themselves in the direction of erecting  the III st church building in Ferguson.  Mr. Noiee appears to be a talented and  amiable young man, and should make  a success in his piofession.'  Between 10 ant" 15 children of school  age have located within the town limits dm ing the last two months, and  the number is bound to increase. As  the city fathers have no" doubt the  welfare of the citizens at heart, why  not (if they have not already done so)  at once take the necessary steps to  have a school district proclaimed ?  And concerning scheicil and church, if  it be-, not presumption, in mc to suggest, would it not be as-well for the  different sects of the Christian faith  represented here, instead of hurrying  to build rival churches or meeting  houses, to at once combine towards  building a good school house and so-  curing the services of a gootl teacher;  and then furnish an object lesson to  tho heathen (of course not of Ferguson) by showing how nicely they can  agree in apportioning tho--18 hours of  Saturday and Sunday and the eyen-  ings of the other days "to the various  services they each desire to conduct in  the aforesaid school house?    - -  Messrs. * Hill and Thompson have  purchased the entire freighting'outfit,  including,paek<-a"tid' wagon stock,-belonging to the Horne-Payne company,  and" with the- addition of 0 4-horsa  teams which"they intend to put on the  road between Ferguson and the "Landing at once^ freight service,to this  place should assume a reasonable face.  Their contract with the Horne-Payne  company calls for tho delivery at the  Landing before Oct. 1st of 400 tons of  ore from the Silver Cup, Sunshine and  Broadview mines, and their return  trip will be at the service of this town,  and rates are promised which will  make it possible for the consumer to  exist and tho dealer to make a living.  Mr, -Thompson   will-reside_.it   the  A recent Ottawa despatch throws  more light on the' situation with regard to the post office department in  Kootenay. ' Mr. Mulock has got Lieut.  Col. White, the old deputy postmaster  general," superannuated, and a gentleman named Coulter of Aurora, Ont.  put in his place. Coulter's sole qualification for the position rests on the  ground that he -is one of Mulock's  constituents. With a job like that  on his hands to bring off, no , wonder  the Postmaster-General has no time  to look into the letting of contracts  and trifling details of that description.  The necessities of Kootenay business  are nothing to the necessity of having  a good strong Grit comfortably es-  conched in the next office to Mr.  Mulock's private sanctum.  11 number of pack tiniinals well laden,  left early lhe following morning for  the Ottawa, 11 limit 13 miloa up.

I understand that Dr. McKechnio  has secured a very fine hospital site,  and that a brewery location has been  chosen, both near the mill.  Town lots arc being taken up rapidly  and resold through F. Wiong at a  huge advance.  Tho townsite roads have het*n improved somewhat lately," and we arc*  promised fin (her efforts in the same  cliretlion in the very near future.  I have just learned on very good  authority that a strike has been made  on Silver Cup mountain, within 5  miles ot here, lri.iu which an assay of  ."300 goid and 100 oz. silver had been  taken.  The mail authorities still maintain  their state of mastetly inactivity towards this place.

It is sincerely to be hoped tnat  the pure air of Ferguson will never  again be polluted with tons of decaying vegetables left lying for months at  the Landing, and hauled hero at ljc.  per Ib. sifter their usefulness hail departed.  It would be a mistake to act on the  assumption that more teams are needed in this district, us with the present  force and the roads improving, fi eight  can be easily hauled for this season.  Under the energetic direction of Mr.  Trooniblay work for the Horne-Payne  company through and all about Ferguson progresses apace. Their splendid wagon road from heie, with  "8-milu" its objective point, is within 2  miles of its destination, and will be  completed this month. An expensive  bridge crossing tho north fork within  the townsite is being rapidly constructed. A truck trail will connect  '"S-inile" with the Silver Cup. Another  truck trail from headquarters to the:  Broadview is nearly completed, and  shipments will shortly begin. The  roadtnakers will then be moved to  Galena Bay to build a wagon road  from that point to tap the present one  to tho Landing, and thus provide for  the exigencies of winter travel.  The company have had two or three  trial lines for it railroad surveyed from  Rosenheim (Galena Buy) to "S-niile;,".  running through this place, and will  no doubt build in season. Their train-  ways, concentrators, etc., must be  first located.'  ... Roadmakers are paid $2.23 and $2.50  per day, less 75c. for board, and gooel  men seem to be in demand.  Prof. Carlyle, Dominion mineralogist, with a party of mining gantle-  rnen, rode through'town the other day  bound for the hills.  "Joe" Young spent Monday night in  town, and in company with J. Y.

It lies  in the northern territories, chiefly  in Alberta, Assiniboia and Saskat-  ��������� che wan.

Actual work on the road is progressing  wonderfully, and for miles along the  line there is one living siring of men  and horses to be seen all on the move,  shovelling, digging, levelling, and in  fact everything looks favourable for a,  spuedy completion of the road. Not,  only will it open up one of tho best  markets for Alberta, but it will be a  great boon to cattlemen livintr in the  south country. Every day the Alien  Labour Law is being enforced and  Uncle Sam is getting some of his own  medicine back that hehosso thoroughly  dosed the Canadians with. It is believed the contract work went, at an  extraordinary low figure, but if so, it  is a good thing in one way as it prevents the subletting to ininot* conM.actors to a great extent, thus putting all  on a more equal fooling and preventing one party from netting all the  profits while on the other bund the  other party is doing all the work.

Sheltered coulees and  ravines leading from the bottomlands or valleys of creeks and  rivers to the highest levels of the  prairies give ample protection  from storms when they occur.  The warm winds from the coast  find their way through Kootenay,  Crow's Nest, Bow River nndi^nsh their brains out against  numerous other passes which  divide the mountain ranges, forming channels o>* conductors for the  warm winds, to increase the temperature and dissolve the snows as  if by magic.  Tlie bicycle is every day being  used more from a business standpoint of view, andas the fad period  is dying out the manufacturers are  of the opinion that the fixed prices  will also pass, and in a short time  plain, serviceable wheels will be  sold at moderate prices and the  more ornamental ones will be more  costly, and it is about time that  the makers are about to consult  the pockets of the buyer? when  you come to consider that it only  costs $10 to $20 to set up a first-  .class wheel $73 to $103 are outrageous prices.  75 passengers on board, rushiiigou to a  washout whicli meant drowning nml  death to the passengers, wasprevented  by lot ot youngsters who noticed the  danger.

A herd of ISO Texas steers literally  mad, cavorting, bawling, floundering  in the grass and apparently striving lo  ' e ioh  other, was seen recently'near Foi t  Scott, Kansas. The cattle belonged lo  Grant Homaday. They had '.-.ecu  bought by him and tli iven in for full  feed. As is now almost universally  the custom among large feeders and  shippers, he had them dehorned, anel  from this seemingly cruel treatment  sprang their af'flie;t ion. One at a time  they had been driven into a chute,  fastened head and foot by an automatic arrangement, .and wilh .a common saw had been dehorned by a professional dehorncr at a rate of three  cents a head. The wounds did not  heal but grew virilismt, and gradually  they became; frenzied with pain. The  owner called a veterinary and hail one  of the brutes examined. It was found  that the top ot its head was lnfestcel  by maggots that hail consumed the  flesh to the bone. With great difficulty the cattle wore driven singly  into the chute where they had been  dehorned, and the veterinary operated  upon them, cleaning the decaying  flesh with acids and applying restoratives. Only five died of the dehorning  results, but had the treatment been ele-  layed a few hours none of them could  have been saved.  Mr=.

SHERMAN   REVI  Sscretary  Sherman's   Letter  by the Papers,*  criticized  London, July 10.���������Reviewing Sec.  Sherman's letter, the Daily Mail says  t'ditoiiallv : '" Unlets we get an arbitration treaty the day will come  when the unbridled verb'age of a small  section of American politicians will  magnify a petty insult into a petty  war. Secretary Sherman's dispatch  was too undiplomatic fcr English ears,  and too hollow for American common  fiense. In the inleiCbts of humanity  tho rumored alliance between Japan  and Spain is desirable. Our Yankee  friends want a little* blood letting to  .bring them $,o a sensible international  ' policy. This would best be done by  anv hands other than those of England."  The Post editorial on Sherman's  letter is as follows : " Every indication points to the certainty that Great  " Britain will havo to light i'or her existence! against the Lnited States as soon  as the American Government believes  war ctin be safely begun.
