A few months ago she went  to Revelsloke to live, but a week since  came buck, bringing a large ejii.tntily  of clotliir.g and furniliiie, which she  placed in her premises on Dupeml  street.

Constable McRae brought his prisoner to town on Sunday and em Mon.  clay Mrs. McKenzie was tried and  sentenced to one month at Kamloops.  Owing to Constable McRae being  uliable to locale the goods while  in Vancouver, and not knowing of their recovery by the Vancouvei'police until after the trial iind  sentence on Monday, Mrs. McKenzie  in consequence got off with a light  .sentence.-  THE RESULT  Opinions of the Coast Papers on the  Election  The Colonist of Ttie.il.iy says: At  the present time of writing the complete letmns give 17 seats to the  govei nmenl, anel lo lo the: opposition.

Occasionally   a   bntlery  placed  on lhe Spanish left and   ou a hill hack '  of town fiied a gun, and  (he Spanish-  volleyed from the trenches mote than '  the Americans.    In fact, the attack on '  our sido was chiefly with artillery.  Our lines were elaborately piotect-  e-el by over 2.200 sand bags, while the  Spaniards weie ptotected by bamboo  poles, and through them they thrust  their rifles and,lired on our troops.

JULY     13,     1S0S.  WHATTHECOUNTRY WANTS  From the Calgary Hcr__.il.  How is ifc that with a record of;  good seasons, high prices for grain  of all kinds, enormous crops and  several good years generally, how  is ifc that the number ot' incoming  settlers of the stamp desired by  the country is so small, aud that  the great North West is   apparently handed over for settlement  to the dirty hordes of half-civilized  Galicians    from     south     eastern  Europe.     Why should_our choice  lands be given up to these savaa.es,'  -who are dumped down amongst  us sans   clothes,   sans   cash, sans  everything, but dirt?   There is no  single bond between our settlers  and them.     A people   who^have  been    a   source    of    unresb  and  anxiety in their own land,flare not  likely to improve the condition oi  the people   amongst  whom they  are introduced.     In Austria they  are looked upon as  the least  intelligent of the iiative������races, and  their own   government   are constantly having trouble with them  in maincaiuing j barriers   for   the  prevention   of'   the   massacre   of  their   neighbors    who   are  Jews.  This is noc the class of people the  North "West will open its arms to  welcome.    The   old world   teeuis  with people who would be a credit  to us and who would materially  benefit themselves by coming out.  The Icelanders are a progressive,  energetic    and    fairly   educated  people, but only a few of them are  induced    to    turn    their     faces  towards Canada.     Yet from Norway,   from   Sweden,    and    from  Germany    a    vast    number    of  intelligent,   hardy,   adveutureous  people might   be brought   to try  their fortunes in the North "West.  They are a class who could afc once  mingle with our people, n Euglish  __-is���������taught-Uu���������their__schools_-iiud.  amongst   the    1 ising   race   many  on   their  first   landing  can   hold  ' converse in  the   lauguag. of the  couutry.   They have proved themselves    valuable   settlers   in   the  United    States,   as    well   as    iu  Canada,    and    their   coming   is  appreciated   and    their  welcome  certain. But above all this country  wants immigrants from the British  Island-���������Scotch,    Irish,     English  and Welsh are all welcome here,  most    welcome,    anti     although  strong efforts are  being made to  induce from these island? the immigration of the class needed, the  poresnse is not so marked as could  be wished.    The farm laborer of  Midland England, 110w exi .ting on  a miserable   12 or   15   shillings   a  week, becomes iu C.Hindu in a very  short time a self reliant and independent farmer, owning his own  land, and   brighter  aud   happier  than   ever, he    was  iu   his   own  country.     Here he loses his landlord, and except by his own folly  need never find him again.    If Mr.  Sifton could be induced  to  turn  his attention to the encouragement  of settlers of this class, he would be  rendering =ervice   to his country  which would entitle him to sueh a  grateful    remembrance    in    the  future, as his present policy does  not entitle him.  Under the editorial supervision  of Mr. J. Castell Hopkins several  hundred of the most celebrated  Canadian writers aro engaged in  the preparation of a work in five  royal quarto volumes bearing the  above title. Tho purpose ot this  work is to furnish, in tho most convenient form for ready reference  and topical reading, complete and  accurate information upon every  important subject relating to the  history, development and resources  of tho Dninitiion of Canada.' The  outline of subjects to be treated is  divided into 'JO parts, each representing 11 distinct branch of  Canadian development,, and including 11 scries of carefully  classified articles by noted authorities. Statistical and explanatory  notes", t.he result of vast research  and study on the part ol the  editor and his assistants, are to  appear throughout the work supplementing the original articles,  and completing in detail tho treatment of overy subject : while  elaborate alphabetical iudexes will  render its stores of information  available at a moments notice.  The idea of such- a publication is  maguificont and daring. In magnitude aud thoroughness of  design the work has certainly uo  parallel in Canadian literature.  Many useful histories of Canada,  and scattered volumes dealing  with various subjects, have  appeared, but uo attempt has been  made heretofore to collect and  classify iu a single work the whole  round of Canadian information.  It is a source of gratification that  Canada has reached that stage of  national development where such  an undertaking is possible from a  financial or business standpoint.  The cost of producing this cncylo-  pedta must be considerable. More  than 300 eminent writers aro  engaged in its preparation; the  editorial work is laborious and  expensive, aud the mechanical  details���������paper, typography, binding aud illustrations���������arc all of the  highest character. Some of 'the  engravings in particular are of  great historic-value. An entirely  new set of Canadian maps, the  most elaborate and. complete yet  published, have been designed for  the work from the latest suiveys  by Dr. Geo. M. Dawson, Director  of the Geological Department, aud  executed in Edinburgh by Bartholomew ct Co. In every detail  the work will be fully equal to the  best literary productions of  England and tho United States.  Mr. Castell Hopkins and his publishers (The Liuseotfc Publishing  Co), are to be congratulated upon  the issue of a work of reference  which will mark a distinct epoch  in Canadiau literature, and at the  same time furnish ou>- citizens  with a vast fund of valuable information not otherwise accessible.  Mr. Hopkins, ifc will be remembered, has already made his mark  as a writer. He is the author of  several important publications  which have enjoyed an extensive  circulationand won therecognittou  of the English press and ot many  noted meu in the Mother Couufci'3r  No man could be . more preeminently fitted i'or the editorship  of these volumes.  By special permission tlie work  is dedicated to Her Most Gracious  Majesty the Queen. Never before,  we believe, has Her Majesty been  pleased to grant this favor to a  Canadian publication.

WIND AND ORATORY  The Haasard reports of the last  session   ot    parliament   are  still  arriving   in    instalments.     They  make very interesting reading���������in  spots.      A   little   practice    with  Ilausard enables the reader to skip  tho arid wastes of barren verbosity  with   which the   windy members  delight to cover its pages.   And  speaking of Ilausard suggests that  tho time has arrived for a drastic  remedy for  the disausting surfeit  of   long   speeches i'or  which   the  Dominion House of Commons has  become noted, which are ufcterly  fruitless, utterly tiresome aud to  which nobody but tho overworked  stenographers over listens.   After  tho lirst three or four, speeches in  ti    big    debate   thore   invariably  follows a monotonous reiteration  of stall' repetition,nscrap book and  patch work inosiaeof mouthy talk,  which costs the country thousands  of dollars   and   the   only earthly  object of  which  is   to   show the  electors of some one horse backwoods constituency what a high  muck-a-muck    their    member   is.  The inos.  effective  choke-off  for  these   barrel   organ   orators  and  their   tin  horn   productions is to  pass    a    rule    limiting   ordinary  speeches  tc ten minutes.    As the  average legislator can say all he  knows in considerably less   than  half   that   time,   and   as   all   the  speeches in a debate after the first  few are only  feeble   rehashes of  what   has   been  already said  by  better speakers, tliere is absolutely  uo sense in allowing monotonous  mediocrities    to   monnpoli/.e   t.he  timo and money of parliament for  no earthly use.   Free'jspeech is all  right hue nobody should be compelled  to listen to  bores, neither  should the over burdened taxpayer  be    mulcted    with    tho    cost   of  reporting      and      printing-    the  drivelling poppycock that perco-  THE  IRREPRESSIBLE.

Uncle Sam is  likely to find his new allies just as  troublesome as Spain found them.  The London Stati-st says that  "I'Jnglish irou ore ia running short.  There i-> '���������till plenty of iron ore in  Kngland but ic is too far down."  What's tho matter with getting  a supply from Canada? There is  plenty of it here and to spare. All  that is needed is capital to work  tlie mines anel if mining was undertaken on a big scale, iron ore could  as cheaply be mined here as on the  south shore of Lake Superior by  the Americans. Of course there i������  the all important question of  transit, but as ISaglanci already  imports large quantities of iron  ore from the Iberian peninsula,  Scandinavia, it should be  possible to fcivp. Canada a chance  of the trade. In any case if ifc  tran������pired that tho ore could not-  be profitably ������hipped| lo England,  there is no reason why English  capital should not establish steel  and iron manufacturies in Canada  and form a baseof profitable trade.  The brutality of the crew of the  wrecked French liner Bourgoine is  a disgrace to civilization. Their  conduct after the collision ivas  apparently, guided by the motto  every man for himself, uud the  devil take the hindermost. The  passengers weie beaten into the  water with oars, only ono woman  out ot 2U0 was rescu_ d, and only; 53  passengers out of -103 escaped with  their lives, most nf the saved  being members of the crew. It is  safe to say that with au Eugli<*h,  or an American crew there would  have been a far different story  to tell.  A writer in the London D.iilv Mail  notes the f.'ic-t that the Hank of P!ng-  land had lately revoked tho rule refusing silver coins with holes in them.

A telegram dated Washington June  30, gives the details of nn attempt to  induce the captain of an United States  vessel to transfer 700 tons of coal from  its bunkers to the Spanish steamer  Maria Herrara. It seems that Captain  Phinney, of the American steamer  Clara A. Phinney, of New. Bedford  was authorised some'days ago to clear  700 tons of coal from Mobile to Vera  Crux, affidavids being made by respon  si hie citizen of Mobile that the coal  was to be used for railroad purposes.  On teaching Vera Cruz the captain  of the Phinney, was directed by the  consignee, to place his vessel alongside the Spanish steamer Maria Herrara, in the presence of a-group ot  SranUh symphathisers. Captain  Phinneybluntly refused.declaring with  emphasis, that- no vessel of his charge  would 'ay alongside a ship bearing the  flag of his country's enemy, much less  supply her with even a pound of coal.  Theciptain with a crowd at his heels  marched to tbe United States Consulate and notified the consul. Exports  of coal by Mr. Jonblanc to Vera Cruz  will cease and the department will  undertake lo fix the responsibility and  punishment for the deed.

The hitter is a log built frontier  town, reminding one of the descriptions of Dawson. It is composed principally of restaurants, stoies and pleasure resotts. The Crow's Nest Conl  Co., have their mines heie and are  putting in a' hundred coke ovens.  Practical miners pronounce the coking  coal to he of high quality, one old  Welsh miner who has mined in Harris-  burg, Pittsburg, Seranlon and Wheeling giving his opinion that it is some  of the linest iu the world. The present known extent of tho coal field is  15x30 miles. The coke ovens are built  side by side in a long row and when  once started never need to be relighted, as the coke when burned is drawn  from alternate ovens which are then  refilled, the necessary heat being automatically communicated from the adjoining ovens.  Coal Creek townsite has been surveyed and the streets laid out. The C.P.R.  is erecting an immense lumber mill  three miles below_Coal, Creek, where  they have about three million feet ot  timber laid out ready for the works  when in operation.

At one siding the passengers numbering about twenty, were  dumped into a box car about one  o'clock in the morning and told to wait  for the next-train which would be  along in about an hou~\ It came, exactly ten hours later.  The road bed as far as Bull Head  is very good but the difficulties of construction are much greater on the  other side. Gravel is being taken  from the Middle Fork for ballasting  the road.
