Tlie I'oiiiiiieiiior.itioii of the dale  of  the commencement of religious liberty  for     the     English      speaking      race  at     the     battle     of       the.     jioync,  in     this     cily,    commenced     at     an  early hour   on   Wednesday   morning.  Tho wealher   was. all   that  could  he  desired.    Au all-night  session   of  lhe  L. O, L., 105S,   helped   to   keep  things  warmed np  for  the  d'iy.      Ac,   l:'3l) it  committee nf  Orangemen   met  a fow  visitors who came in on No. 2. Quite a  few from   eastern   points  came  in  on  tl-.e evening beforo.     Tapping's  opera  house   was    littingly   decorated   hoi li  inside and out, an arch was   built and  everything pul in readiness to receive  the visitors.     At   0:30  the  adjourned  meeting   of the. lodge convened and  initialed   some   new     members.    The  local lodge and* visitors  present  then  formed into a procession,  and  headed  by lhe Revelstoke City Band, inarched  to the  station   to  meet  Ihe  brethren  and friends from the west. The visitors  were   given   a   cheering   and   hearty  reception.    They  immediately  joined  the. big procession and marched to the  lower town,   returning   to  Tapping's  opera house nt 12 o'clock.    Thi'p.ir.ule  was  a   creditable   one,   and   if  large  numbers, brass band and fife and drum  music go for anything, it was certainly  the biggest event of the kind ever held  in Revelstoke.     An   excellent  dinner  was held  in   the  hall, by   tho  L.i dies'  Aids of both the Methodist  and  Presbyterian churches, while refreshments  were', dispensed      by      a,     bevy    .of  pretty girls.    At 2  p.m.   Worshipful  Master   Birney   took    the. chair and  culled the large crowd to order,   inl reducing Rex. .1. B. Powell, of Euderhy,  B.C.,-mil  R'.'v.  rf. J. Thompson.  Rev.  Thos.

At 2 p.m. the programme  of  sports  was taken up and run ofi" quickjy  and  smoothly.    Some of  the  events   were  intensely   interesting'.      The   100 and  220 yards dash was  closely" contested.  The afternoon   was  almost  too warm  for comfort, but plenty  of  entries  in  all lhe. events made  the, spoils, interesting  while  they  lasted.

A timet and impromptu social bop  took place in the hall in the evening  under tho direction of D. Alton.  Alessrs. Ahlin, Walorson. Wood and  Smith furnished the music.  Over 100 visitors from Salmon Arm  were in the city.  Not a man from Kamloops put in an  appearance. A telegram was received  by Secretary R. P. Pettipiece at, the  eleventh hour saying that the agent  at Kamloops had no advice re advertised rates. But this seems improbable us all the agents along the line  seemed to have that advice. It was.  probably a mistake on the part of the  remittor at Kutulnops. He must have'  meant "no excuse." This' is the  second   time   the   Kamloops   L. O.

SO  50  1 00  Placer Fields Discovered on   she   West  Coast of Vancouver Island.  Sensational news has been brought  from the west const of Vancouver  Island by the steamer Willapa, which  arrived at, Victoria Tuesday. It i.s  tliat rich placer fields have been discovered at a point locally known as  Wreck Bay, .about five miles from  Eucluelet, and not far from the uppei-  entrauce to Alberni canal. The distance is about 150 miles by waier from  1 w j Victoria und the Willapa passes the  spot on every trip. Practically all the  i oast, in the iinniediatP vicinity has  already been staked in Sci-acre claims,  ivilha formal notice on each centie  stake of the locators intention to  apply for record 30 days hence. The  lie.u-li is lovel. although broken and  rock-strewn, both above and below,  and skirts the Pacific with a mass of  black sand.  That this black sand is rich in gold  was discovered by Tyee Jack, an  Indian resident of the coast, some  weeks ago, but it has been .1 religiously  guarded secret until the present trip-  of the steamer, .although her officers  were given a hint that was useful to  them on the previous voyage.  From thesingle tests that have thus  far been made it appears that llieie is  an abundance of piecious metal in tbe  sands. Mr. McKenzie. the storek eeper  at Dodge's Cove, who was one of the  first to reach,the scene, is reported to  havo cleaned up $9 in a single day  with the crudest possible appliances.  Another . miner.   Joe   D'inkwatciv  from Glayoquot, took up a pan of  the  sand, hupliazai-d'niid washed   it in the  .  presence of an. interested  group,   thi.  return being $2.10.  Captain Charles Hackett, Victoria,  who is on the coast with the sealing  schooner Libbie. heard of tlio. finds  while looking for a hunting ci ew and  s\r:iek out immediately for the locality  in which tliere seemed to be a prospect  of quicker fortune"'. He paid $50 for it-  half interest iii'n claim thai had been  staked the day before and is proud ot  his bargain.  Then cnuie Captain Victor .lacobson  of the Minnie,   who   acquired   a   half  interest in Capt._I.ucketl's  property;  and Rev.   Mr.   Swai-tout,   one   of  the  best known missionaries on the  coast,-  ���������-vho also invested.. *.  ��������� By this time, however, most of  the  ,pLTr"^!0n-i beach, had   been staked,... Settlers  to-  the number of 11,or  15   had  swooped  down on the beach (nitnost  in   a  day.'  located, and are now"holding  to  their *  properties iu firm, belief of  tlieir rich-*  ness.' ������������������-^ ~V -  This was how  matters   stood-when  the Willapa left the scene, for Victoria.  Cory Menhenick was in town on the  twelfth! lie is jubilant, over ihe prospects of his townsite .it. the mouth of  Pool creek, which he thinks will turn  out a hot number, as both railways  liave surveyed a line right through  it, running up Fish creek as far as the  townsite and then turning ea������t  through the canyon. The C. I?. R.  party under Surveyor Doucet was in  rami) on the townsite. when Mr.  Menhenick left. A hotel is already in  operat.ioil on the townsite and Mr.  Menhenick lias just finished putting  up a residence for himself.  The lecture, on' Abraham'Lincoln'  was not so well attended, on AVednes-  dav :u* was hoped:..hul this was'  to be accounted Tor by ihe^ extreme  heat of the evening and tlie fact' that  many were -thoroughly tired out hv  the sports of the day.vMr. Thompson ,  gave a brief resume of the life, of the  great liberator "whose proudest monii-.  ment shall be. the broken fetters or  the slave.-' A collection of SS.75 wns  contributed to the St. James' Relief  Fund. Mr. Alluin and Mrs. Dr. Jeffs  sang very appropriate solos, which  were loudly applauded. (-  >H = ������������������ = ��������� '���������  t  Screens for Doors  and Windows.

LARDEAU  LOOKING UP  From the Calgary Herald  The news that half the townsite of  Ferguson has been ".purchased by the  Northern Pacific railway will he gooel  reading for investors in Lardeau real  estate. This assures tho future of  Ferguson. Two railways are now  heading for this rich mining camp, a  fact which when considered in connection with tho largo amount of development work now in' progress and  the rich oro bodies which are heing  uncovered in the Silvor Cup, Nettie L,  Beatrice and other properties means  lhat tho year 1900-will witness a boom  in Lardeau, Trout Lako and Fish  Creek districts the possibilities of  which are unlimited.  The new franchise proposals whicli  were submitted to nnd agreed to by  tho Transvaal Volksraad do not appear now to te so -full of promise for  a peaceful settlement of difficulties os  ���������was at first thought, ino onc knows  their true significance as yet aud unofficial press reports are not of much  credit.

Two young girls.  ' near by heard tho calls for help and  when they arrived they managed to  save the young lady.  Seeing tho Senator's body, whioh  could easily bo reached with an oar,  they managed to got it ashore, out  were unable to resuscitato him.  They then, crossed the bay to Mr.  Bailer's island for help. He immediately sent to Windermere for mc'i-  cal aid. Dr., Cotton, of Toronto, loft  at once for the Senator's place, but  was too late to render any assistance.  When found the Senator was standing up in the water with his hands  grasping a stone, his head being 18  inches below tho surface.  Mrs. Sanford is at present in the  Old Country..  The news created great consternation in business circles in Hamilton  and among the citizens generally, the  Senator being one of Hamilton's  wealthiest, most influential and most  popular citizens.  The late' Senator carried $110,000  life insurance. He was a life long  Conservative and a close friend of  the late Sir John Macdonald.  -WIRED- -FROM^OTTAWA_  Government   Criticized   for   Keeping  Troops   in   Yukon���������Western  Bills Assented to  Ottawa, July 11.���������(Special���������His Excellency Lord Minto. in addition to  assenting to a partial supply bill this  afternoon, also assented lo tlie following 'Western bills: Edmonton ;&  Slave Lake railway, Alberta Irriga-  iion company, Brandon & So-iawest-  ern railway.

THE GREAT CHESS GAMES  Colorado has many millionaires  who, beginning with littlo money,  have acquired their wealth sinco 1S!)3  hy operating or investing In mines.  Tho mention of only a fow will illus-  trato the success that sometimes results   front   judicious   investment.  David H. Moffat, of Lendvillo, who.  throupgh his many mining interests  has bocomo a multl- millionaire, in  lsal, along with his partner Ebon  Smith, purchased a prospect lu an improved Cripple Creek camp for ?G5,000  paying ?5000 down and engaging to  pav the remainder later. He spent  $5000 iu further development and  with tho proceeds of the ore taken out  paid tho remaining $60,000 of the purchase monoy. In 1S93 he, wilh others,  formed tho Victor Gold Mining company with a capitalization of $1,000,-  000 to further develop and operate  the prospect. Up to the end of 1S11S  it had paid dividends of $1,050,000,  $350,000 of the amount last year. Mr.  Moffat's favorite and mosl profitable  method, says the Denver News, has  been, lifter careful investigation, to  take hold of an undeveloped or por-  tially developed property at lhc minimum of price, cost and risk, and  convert it into an ore-producing,  profit paying mine.  Ebon Smith, Moffat's partner,  amongst individual enterprises on his  own acoiint, purchased a small interest in the Little Johnny at Lcad-  ville, and has sinco received annually far more in dividends than tne  amount he  paid   for  the  interest.  W. S. Straton, in April, 1S01, loaded  ris miner's oulfit on a donkey, and  driving it before him, walked S"> miles  from Colorado Springs to Cripple  Crook and discovered and became sole  owner of tho independence mine  which has since yielded him millions  of  dollars.  John F. Campion, a Prince Edward  Island man, began work in 1891 on  Brccce Hill, Leadville. taking a lease  and bond. He afterwards admitlcd  partners from among personal friends  who with him in 1S92 formed tho Ibex  mining company with a capital ot  $100,0000. In 1S93 about $1,000,000 of  ore was taken out and up to the end  of 1S9S the mine produced about  $10,000,000  of  ore.   .  Thomas F. Walsh, tho owner of the  Camp Bird .mine, Colorado, two years  ago bought it as an abandoned prospect, and, though ho has hitherto shipped his ore to his ten stamp mill on  mulo bnck at a cost of over $2 a ton,  tho mino is netting him $30,000 per  month.  The Cripple Creek district is only  six miles long by threo miles wide,  a mere spot compared with the gold  fields of Nor.._.wc_ici n Ontario, but  since 1S91 it has produced over  $50,000,000 in gold, and the oro produced in 1898 is estimated at  $15,G02,022, and 19 of its mines paid  an aggregate dividend of $2,352, 710  in that year.  James B. Burns, a stcamfitter, and  James Doyle, superintending an- irrigation ditch at a salary of $10 a  month, in _o������l walked lrom Colorado  Springs to Cripple Creek and taking  another partner in, commenced thc  Portland mine, and in 1891 organized  the Portland Gold Mining company,  a company which paid, up to May,  1SD9, no less than $2,137,080 in dividends, of which $570,000 was paid, last  year.  Adoph Zang, Fred Siegel and F. J.  Campbell spent WO,000 in developing  tho Vindicator mine beforo it commenced to produce, hut it has paid  hundreds of thousands of dollars  since.  J. R. McKenney in 1S91 walked into  Cripple Creek with a stock of bacon  and flour for his own use. ,'He is now  onc of tho largest owneis of the Moon  Anchor and was one of the largest of  the Black Diamond which, after a  littlo development, was sold to tho  Portland Co. for $350,000.  Warren Wood and his two sons  made over $1,000,000 out of Cripple  Creek in seven years, and now hold  the controlling interest in several  mines.  In Southwestern Colorado. the  Smuggler-Union group, near Telluride,  owneel and operated by John A. Porter  and associates, has produced since  1SS6, nearly $10,000,000 in metal.  The Sunny side", near Silverton. has  made its owner, J. H. Terry, rich in  a sort time. In the winter of 1S94  he had live men at work on the property ,but as they had no capital they  agreed to wait for their wages till  spring and be paid out of the proceeds  oi the ore. In the spring he hired a  Mexican who owned a train of pack  animals to carry the ore away to a  small cheap mill ho had built. .A.  Mexican cthere shovelled the ore into  tho~miil_and���������Terry���������worked���������the-Trri"r  Entirely out of the proceeds of this  mino he has since "built an aerial  tramway 16,000 feet long from his  mill above tho timber limit down to  the railway, where he is now erecting  a 100 ton mill furnished with the  most modern equipments. The pay  streak ou his mine is 25 feet wide nnd  rauns from $6 por ton upwards.

Those of our readers who harto not  been ablo to read the whole of Sir  Hibbert Tapper's speech on the Yukon  administration will bo interested ln  thc following brief summary of his  charge:; against thc government and  ils official!!. Sir Ilihert Tupper concluded liis cyieech by moving-an amendment to the motion to go into supply, to tho effe't 'that a judicial commission he appointed to investigate  tho charges. Tho amendment was defeated hy a party vote, but three Liberals, Mr. Oliver, member for Alberta,  Mr. Richardson, member for Lisgar,  and Mr. Mclnnes, member for Vancouver, voted against the government  and in favor of Investigation.  Mr. Oliver said:  1 consider something more than an  investigation is needed. 1 consider  that a great wrong has been dono to  many people who went out as pioneers to that country: ami while it  inny he impossible to redress these  wrongs it is not impossible to punish those who perpetrated them. I  will vote Cor thc motion of tho honorable momhor for Pictoti, not because  I support all that his motion contains or the position ho has taken in  every parlicular.but because 1 wish to  placo before lho house and the country in the most emphatic manner possible, my desire that the offences  which hi ve been committed against  thc pioneers of the Yukon by curtain  ollicers of tr.e government should be  punished and punished as severoly as  possible, as tho result of any investigation lhat may he held. I consider  that it is nccssary to hold an investigation for the credit of the officials  as well as for tneir punishment. All  arc not guilty and all were noi equally  guilty, bnt that certain officials were  guilty has been proved by the departmental investigation held by Mr.  Ogilivc. It is desirable for the good  name of those who did no wrong and  the - punishment of those who did  wrong, that the right should ho sifled  from the wrong.  Mr.  Richardson  said: "  Supposing 1 refuse to vote for this  resolution, how am I to appear hefore my constituents and the country  as supporting the fullest possible investigation into what I am fully satisfied is wrong doing. I thought at  first of voting against the resolution  and then introducing one myself,  but after studying thc matter over  carefully for nearly 2-1 hours and giving a great deal of worry to it, I  have come to thc conclusion that it is  my duty to vote for the fullest inquiry  into the Yukon and that being the  caso 1 inieii, lo vote for this motion.  Tho Charges  That thc Hon. Clifford Sifton, minister of tho interior, has been guilty  of scandalous neglect, delay aud mismanagement in tho administration of  his depcninent in thc Yukon district. 0  mat thc commissions issued lo  Major Walsh wore made without authority and were consequently viiO  That thc record ot Major Walsh  whon supei intendent "of the Mount".-!

That the government on the recommendation of Mr. Sifton. appointed,  certain officials who were incapable  and corrupt to positions requiring  experience, technical knowledge aiul  integrity  o������ character.  That Mr. Sifton has been guilty of  favoritism and partiality in tho ad-  ministraton of the laws oi tho Yukon.  That according to official _e-::.i..->  the following parties obtained leases  of gold  placer mining or gold dred:  American  Tr.diug  company,  of  Chicago and Seattle.  that Major Walsh did not make  official reports hy each mail as required   by  order  in   council.

Thai Major Walsh illegally issued  an order lo tho Superintendent of ihe  Mounted Polico forbidding him '.o recognize liquor permits unless issued  by tho department of tho interior, cr  by Inspector Wood. That ho subsequently notified tho representatives  of tho gambling and liquor saloons  that thc governor of the Nortli West  Territories bad no jurisdiction uud  that the police would be instrint.3'1  not to entertain charges for inft-nc-  fion of North West.

Mr. Kellie -informed us during his  visit on Monday that liis organ, the  Mail, and its editor,. McDnif, would  give us the cold steel or the marble  heart? in today's issue. Come on  MeDufT, tlie "knockers" are about to  take the trail.  Sergt. R. IT. Routledge, of this Caiui-  dian Royal Dragoons, AVinnipeg, has  been detailed to instruct the .members  of tlie local company of B. C. Rifles.  He has established himself at the  Union nnd commenced work by a drill  lust, night.  A Salmon Arm visitor to the L.O.L.  ct-Idliration on the l___Sl.li reported Mint  there had heen a severe hailstorm in  that vicinity Inst week. It. wns about  a quarter of a mile wide und destroyed  everything in its course. The grain  mid fruit, crop will he a total failure  from the effects  KELLIE    WONDERS   WHY.  Mr, Kellie is going around plain-  lively wondering why the Herald  iccuses him of being an obstacle to  lhe progress of this constituency and  of expending his energies in tlie sole  interests of his little clique of admirers  and to the injury of his opponents.  He cannot understand it iitvall. To  the Ill'KAi.l) it seems that this very  lack of comprehension cm Mr. Kellie's  part is the best possible proof of his  utter unfitness to hold.the position of  representative of this place at Victoria. If Mr. Kellie. really imagines  that he bus shaped his course ns our  member for our best interests, heaven  help us if he ever 'deliberately undertook to work against us. But the real  trouble with Mr. Kellie is an nbuoriiiul  attack of the dangerous malady  known ns "swelled head." lie 'cannot  understand anybody who refuses to  full in with his views and he does not,  consider the opinions of those who  fail to see eye to eye with him as of  any consequence ut, nil. They may be  very good people in tlieir place, but  their ideas of what is beneficial for  this town and district cannot for one  moment be allowed to conflict with  wliat he, the great .1. iM. Kellie, considers to lie for its interests.  The whole- town wanted the river  bank-- protected, .'��������� but Mr. Kellie  thought it was work which only the  Dominion government should undertake, and tliat settled the 'matter" us  far as gelling any assistance froiiihini  was concerned. The tOwn wanted  incorporation by a certain date. Mr.  Kellie's lofty intellect did not approve  of Unit date, and withouL troubling  himself to' consult nnvbody he? took  steps to get it postponed. The town  wants the wagon rond completed to  the canyon. In Mr. Kellie's wisdom  the work is unnecessnvy and he cannot  allow these foolish people to have  their   own   way.

And  yet he wonders why people look upon  .Iii hi as an obstruction and -wet blanket.  His lust exploit in the Standard Basin  business touches the climax in Mr.  Kellie's peculiar methods of furthering  cur interests, hut the Hekald intends  to touch upon this point more fully in  u subsequent issue.  Pei haps Mr. Kellie. will understand  more fully why we dn not require his  services ns our member any longer, ifc  we run over the points of the kind of  mini we do want in lhis constituency.  We desire in the first plate someone  who will be in the forefront of every  public enterprise with advice and  council and active help in obtaining  government assistance if needed. We  want a m-ill of energy and foresight,  strong fnilli in Llie district and brains  enough to put our side of the case of  the case effectually before lhe authorities. AVe want a man who will  be an influence in the house, uot  necessarily a great orator or a debater,  hut a man of sense, to whom the  legislature will he glad to listen.
