The youngsters hnd an immense ' timo with  swings, races and all kinds of sports,  to say nothing of the bountiful spread  produced by the ladies of the two  congregations, and- laid out on a  hundred feet of tables beneath the  trees. Several family parties were  also enjoying themselves under the  cedars at the canyon or on the slopes  ofRevelstoke'mountiiin.

CRUSHED ALMOST TO A JELLY,  A Workman on the Ballast Train Loses,  His Right Leg.  Friday afternoon an Italian workman on Ihe b.dl-ist train which was at  work abuiiL a mile east of the station,  was the victim of ������ painful accident,  by wliich he lost, his right leg. The.  man's name is Cnjiadarc Dinario,  though he goes among his fellow  workmen hy the name of Frank  Jumes. He "was scraping the earth.  I10111 the side of the rails, where it had  fallen while the plow was unloading  the (rain of flat cars, and in doing so,  placed his right leg across thu metal.  He was standing immedi.-itelv behind  lhc train from which the enL.ne was  detached at the time, but. while he was  still with his- font inside the rail the  engine backed down io tlm  ti.iin and moved the cars about threo '  feet. The unfortunate in.111 was  caught nud his leg crushed to ,1 jelly ,  beneath the wheels. Before he was  extricated tlie train moved forward  again and p-issed over the leg ,1 second  time. He was picked np and conveyed to the hospital whero it was  found that the leg was so badly"  crushed below the knee that an amputation above the knee was necessary.  Dinario is a man of about 50 vears of-  age and of strong, build. In'spite of'  thp very serious nature nf his injuries,  he. is doing well though not vet out of*  danger. " .    .  COUNCIL IN REGULAR SESSION  A Short Meeting   Before   the   Holidays-.  Held on Friday Night.  The usual weekly meeting of the.  city council was held on Frid.-iv last,  present the Mayor, Aids. Kilpatrick,  Wells, Crage and .McKechnie.  There  were  no  communications of-  nnv importance.  The   clerk  was   instructed  to  enm-  miinicate   witli   the provincial   seere-  tarv  regarding  obtaining  permission  to deposit the (#*ty's garbage and night'  soil in tlie Columbia river.  Lit enses were granted to XV. FJem--  ingand J. C. Hutchison to act as  cily.  scavengers.  The rest of the sessioo,"which   was a,  very short one, was emploved in pass- "  ing an amendment to the  Fire,  bylaw  to regulate the use of water during, iv'  fire.     " * .  The gale of Monday afternoon fanned  into a blaze the smouldering, embers  still latent in a pile of charred and  scorched lumber whicli had been piled  up after the fire whicli destroyed the  old Revelstoke sawmill. The flames  quickly attained considerable proportions under the impulse of the high  wind and by the time No. 2 lire brigade was on the spot were threatening  to extend to some of tlie sin-rounding  houses. The brigade, however, worked  hard and kept the flames within  bounds and so prevented what might  have proved a most destructive and  extensive fire if it had ever got headway with such a gale as tliere was  blowing at the time.  St.   Peter's - Church  Chancel. Dedicated "  The services at St.. Peter's church on  Sunday were very hriaht and hearty. ,  The new chancel was formally opened  ���������ind dedicated for Divine service.

The subject of the evening's sermon   -  was   thu great  promise  to" St.  Peter '  " Thou art Peter and on this rock will ���������'  I build My Church."     Dr. Paget men-]. -  tioned the three opinions current with"  expositors as In whatour Lord   meant"''  by   '-the rock?'  one   th-it   He    meant  Himself and indicated Himself as  He",  spoke;   another, that  the  foundation  rock   of   the  church   was   the   great. '  confession which  St.* Peter'had just  uttered:   "Thou  Art the Christ., the '  Son of the Living God;" and the third, -  that the rock   was St.  Peter  himself.-  which lhe preacher said in his opinion .  was tlie most natural interpretation of  the passage.    He then went on to show- '  how St. Peter fulfilled   the  promise as :  a rock to tlie infant church and  show  the lessons from  his  example applicable to Christians of todav.     The dis-~"  course   wns   listened   to " witli     deep,"  attention   by  thu  large  congregation '  present.

CATTLE MANGE  The stock in tho southern portion  of Alberta, particularly that district  around Macleod. hag become infected  ���������with the cattle man's special detestation, mange. The government has  adopted vigorous measures to stamp iL  ont. Dr. McEachren, tho Dominion  chief veterinary, at once r-commenil-  ed quarantining all cattle coming from  these districts and enforcing inspection by veterinary surgeons, dipping,  and retention in the quarantine st.i-  iloi< t-ntil the animals are pronounced  cured. There are two forms of  mange, the red and the white. In the  former Uie skin cracks and bleeds  from the friction caused hy the animal  rubbing the affected ran against some  stationary object, nnd this form of the  olsease is the most difficult to blot  out. In the latter, known as the  v.hite mange, tho affected spot becomes covered with a dry. harsh sort  of scab which scales off easily when  rubbed. As a rule the mange first  makes its appearance on the m-ek  and quickly rprends to the remaining  portions of' the body. The i.nimals  tso affected will refuse to feed as the  disease advances and lose flesh rapidly ln consequence.  The Western Stock Growors association, as was only to be expected from  that energetic body, is doing all it can  to lessen the ravages of tho disease.  At Kipp on thc Belly river the association has built dipping ahutes, to  ���������which cattle are driven. Chemicals  used in preparing the hath are furnished partly by thc government and partly by the "association. When cattle  are in quarantine it is usual to give  them three applications - of tho dip,  but as a rule one is sufficient'to kill  the parasites. ''  The importance of thc stock growing industry of Alberta tc thc Dominion has been .evidenced by the  iromr-t mc-r.-urcs taken by the government to eliminate this disease. If it  were r.llowet'. to spread, end it would  snread rapidly were no remedies applied, being a most contagious disease,  the cattle industry of Alberta would  receive a set back from which it would  ��������� take years to recover. Local stockmen cannot be too careful in looking  out for the first sign of this disease  among their cattle. Should.it appear  on even one. it. and the bunch it runs  with should be segregated and dipped.  no harmful effect, but there tieonis to  he no douni that smoked Incessantly  and i'.inaled a deleterious effect is  produced on the system. However  that may be It is a man's right to say  what he will or will not smoke, but  in tho case of small boys and children  Jt is different. Smoking, and particularly clgaretto smoking is bad  fo-   them. Inhaling   cigarettes   is  tl-.c first thing a boy who gets hold  of one learns, he continues the habit,  his lungs bocomo weak and ns a  consequence he grows up weakly in  contitution and not properly Uttcd  to take his part in the battle of life.  Provision has been made by the  Legislative Assembly in an ordinance  nr .living to municipalities and vll-  lugCH which provides tho penalty o.  not less than $1 or more than $10 anil  costs for any person furnishing a  ininor under the age of 10 with tobacco and cicarettes. If this ordinance was looked after a little moro  closely by the guardians of the law.  pcrnaps the vouth of Calgary would  find itself cut off from Its pot poison  much to its benefit.  Some talk has been heard on ino  curfew question. This Is now in tho  power of the citizens to enforce. If  thev wish to do so they aro perfectly  at libcrtv to go ahead, there is "nothing to prevent, them, but it. is a  matter wliich will require carelul  consideration.

P. tor  Leeds, South riding, Ontario, made  a memorable onslaught on thc "business is business" management of the  economical Grit government. Seldom  has an exposure so complete been de  llvered in ._e Ottawa house. He  thoroughly showed up the pernicious  practices of the government in purchasing supplies troni_ Liberals at,  ln most cases, a far 'greater value  than the current market price.  Mr. iay]or took up specially thc extra >k,000 increase in the estimates  for fisheries and fishery protection  service. This money had been practically) thrown away by the government. In one case a man supplied  pease at $2.50 por bushel to the gov-  _eminent, steamer,.,.at. .that time^ 50e_  ~-<-as the market price, another firm  Fiipporter O: the government was able  to sell cases of condensed milk -.t  S3.CO a pi.'i'c. the same milk selling in  Yiftp*.*:.-!. is.

IS and even *-0c  per'loaf, ant so cn with almost every  Item of tbe account.of produce.and sup  plies  of   every   sort. This   is   the  economical government. On i"ip  vhnle fishery service the late government spent "some $95,000. The Grits  ., prr.pose to raise it to $100,000 without any zood cause but for the benefit  of the faithful. As Mr. Taylor .a>-s:  "I ssk honorable ministers how a.-o  thpy gointi to account to the people  fT itis failure to redeem their pledce  that thry were going to conduct the  affair? o< the country on business  -principles? What will the farmers  think of these prices, who are producing thc greater proportion of the  goods I have been reading? Lion-  will they measure up this government, which if paying three or lour  times what the goods are worth, for  the purpose of convening the people."  .  Thc- people arc- not blind, the fann-  pf who sees his n'-it:h!.or*B produce  bought by government at a lamer  price than Is right knows that that,  ndvan'ce price comes out of his pocket,  nnd when the time comes to exnn-ss  oninion of his robb'T^ will .do s--o  without fail.  OLD   COUNTRY   POLITICS  Csmpbell Bannerman, Liberal Leader,  Gets ��������� His  Chance.  New York, June 27.���������Reviewing the  past week's parliamentary doings.thc  London correspondent of the Tribune  says: Sir Henry Campbell Banner-  man has waited quietly to show that  he has thc instinct of leadership and  at last he found it. His speech in opposition to - - rating of the tithes  lr.ll has thrilled the Liberal benches.  Tt is the speech of a leader- who  know; how to fight when a contentious and. unpopular measure is forced  jpon the commons under the 10 min-  ire rule. What he describes as fresh  endowments for tbe richest religious  body ir. the world is.proposed at a  time when opinion within and  outside tho Ei's.'ish church is turning strongly toward disestablishment  n- the oniy practical policy for enabling it '.o govern itself and preserve  its essential character. The dole is  a small one, only .CS7.000 but it is  proposed at the wrong time and in  the wrong way. The matter ought to  ht.ve been deferred until tho Royal  commission Had reported on local  taxation and the ministers were prepared to submit a general scheme of  reform.  Henry Norman, cabling to the Times  says: The spirits of the Liberals  have���������once^more���������gone���������up���������with������������������a-  junip. South Edinburgh has turned  a Conservative majority of 97 into a  Liberal majority of 931 and East  Edinburgh has raised n Liberal majority of 4-10 to 3930. Moreover, there  is every prospect of the Liberal candidate winning the important Conservative seat of Oldham, in Lancashire, made vacant hy death.

RrvTsurrorE TERRIBLE STOIV  CF  HELEY CROFT.  Holey Croft is the best old house  ln the town of Fensham. It is  a quaintly gabled structure of Elizabethan date, covered with white stucco and wistaria, nnd abutting right  on thc main street of the town at its  junction with North lane. At the  end of the North lane In front of  Heley Croft thore aro two or three  cotiageB Wi-ich run up into the  comer of the Croft, one bcliiR almost embedded in its crooked walls.  Otherwise tho house is surrounded on two sides with a garden���������a  genuine old-fashioned affair, with a  lawn like velvet and venerable elm  trees.  When Whyte took the house he  hatl just purchased a partnership with  the . ards, the family solicitors of  Fonsham, and he had ouly just married a young wife. I saw a good deal  of ...o Whytes about this time  Curlovsly enough I had known them  holh years before they knew each  other ami surpiised their friends by  thoir mutual attachment. Tt was r  strange marriage, for Tommy Whyte  was -i Kinail. level-headed man of thr  w_i._. and Margaret���������Mrs. Whyte 1  suppose I must calle her��������� was c  successful opera singer, an ethovea*  beauty, who had been wholly wrapped up in her art since she'was .  child, and whose purity of characte'  and superb voice had captivated th"  world as soon as she appeared behint'  the footlights. In ordinary affairf  . she was a baby, but she and Tommy  got along  like,  turtle  doves.  I see from my diary it-was the litb  of October when the story of Heley  Croft began for me. I had had a  heavy ilay for a country town���������11  patients; and feeling tired In the  evening, I stepped across thc street  after dinner to have a cigar with  Whyte.  "This is providential, old man."  ���������was his greting. "My wife Has been  upset all day. and wou'd not hear of  my sending for you. She says there's  n(K_-ng the matter; but it would eas������  my mind if vou would have a look  at her."  I had smiled at the young husband's anxiety, but "recived a shock  when we had hunted up Mrs.Whyte.  She had the pallor and heavy expression of sleeplessness, and-.sat in  a listless attitude, but worse than  that her beautiful eyes had acquired  a foreign expression���������one of abject  terror. Her whole bearing was ut-  terlv strange to her. and T could not  ascertain that there was anythine to  account for lier indisposition. Her  state was a puzzle. It seemed that  Whyte had gone up to. town the previous day on business, and had been  detalneu '__������vsr night, but not unexpectedly. ""When he arrived home he  had found his wife just as I had  seen her, and not. a syllable of explanation could she. offer.  We sat up chatting long after Mrs.  Whyte had retired to rest, at my  suggestion; and Whyte explained to  me, with an agitated exnresslon. that  she na'd Imperatively desired him to  occupy a spare bedroom 'which looked out ���������to the sh-eet, whi'st she had  gono to her usual chamber. This  was on the- other side of. the house,  snd had a big window commanding  the   garueu.  "I humored her, of course." -lie  said. '-i..i. all the same I do not  understand thc wish. Phn'seemd to  he   verv   intent   upon   it."  "No doubt." I' renlied. "she is  onlv afraid of restlessness, and wants  you to be fit for work tomorrow. I  can see she had, a poor night last  niglit. . I will look in again -tomor-  ��������� row."  "But listen. *Aspley," objected  Whyte. "She says she i������ not ill. aud  there" is no. need to see wou further professionally. In fact, she says  she won't see  you."  "With a little romancing I dare  sav I can find a reason for coming."  I   laughed.    "I3bn't   worry   yourself."  ������������������ ,,  next night I went to Heley  Croft   again in       the   evening,   ana  found    ..nyte   had   worried   himself.  His   wife   was   worse���������much   worse  She   had   just   the   air   of   a   woma-  thoroughly'. run     down,     and       her  fixed   gaze  of   horror  was   quite  trying to look   at.    She appeared  abou  five  years  older,   too.   The   transformation  in   24*' hours  was   so   marked  that  it gave  me  a disagreeable  surprise,   atiu   the   unfortunate   husband  was  quite distracted.  "She persists,' he confided to me,  "that she will he alone at night, and  it waB uunng last night that she goi  so much worse. I never heard a  sound, though I had a sleepless night  myself   lurough  anxiety."  I prescribed a mild 'tonic and a  change of scene for a fow days, for  really there was nothing in tho British Pharmacopoeia tp meet the case  as-far as 1 ~co"uld___ake~out:    :   '-i���������~-  wo e.umot  get  at tho    seat    of  the I My  brain   seemed   stirred   to  abnor-  tioubio   till   wc   know   al   labout   it.

We might have saved  ourselves the trouble. The servant  ma..e nu complaint.  It met the Whytes at the station  accidentally when they returned, and  was ��������� ���������ch reassured that I began  to feel rather foolish at having beeu  so veiy interested in the case. Judge  of m> astonishment, therefore, when  at tlie treastast next morning the  following note was handed to mo  from _ommy:  ''Dear Aspley: Come across at  oc_ .- i.ou's sake. Margaret' is  much  worse  than before.       T.W."  I hastened across to Heley Croft,  aud Whyte himself met me at the  d_i*,r   looking" terribly  alarmed.  'It Is woite than ever," ho said  as li" ctni.-.tctea me inside. "Maggie  would he alone last night, and when  I got u;> In the morning she was  itruply deathly. What the dickens  can  bo the  matter?"  The paiin.t'B appearance more  than c.jiliimed his words. She was  iu a shocking state of prostration,  anti could scarcely rise or speak.  "'.-.om.' I said, "I want a confidential chat with your wife."  Ke took the hint and went out.  We ?at In her old-fashioned, oak  pauejed boudoir, or morning room,  and I -".hinged Into tho matter at  once.  "My dear lady," I said, "If your  husband bad to defend a case, lie  would require to know all the facts  whic!. iver way they might tell, and  then use his own judgment. Now,  forgive me. you are keeping something foaefc.

"ur. Aspley,' she murmured, "you  woind not believe me. It la too  hon ible."  ' On the contrary," I replied, "we  doctors have to believe wliat seems  ;o bo impossible every day. I won't  rest tnl l know the worst. I promise  to beiicve you."  She shuddered again,  "ugn.     she   said.    "It   is   horrible.  It Is  ug mc!"  "It may km you if you don't let  rae help,1' I replied. "Iiut there is  no reason why it should if you let  .r-e   ..ght it.

"Why not  Jccult powers aro only disordered  .crtbratioiis."  ���������__.eie were, fortunately, no theo-  sophists   piesent.  "Cou.d you," she went on, "arrest  .ho liand of  god?"  "Of course," I replied, with, I am  afraid, ratner hopeful blasphemy; "if  .t were a visible  hand.   Why  not."  ...en sae collapsed. She burst into  i ter. ent of tears like a chi.d. I  sootued and comforted her gently,  md by very slow degrees arrived at  the   following   narrative:  "When my husband went to Lon-  .lon last wok I was the happiest wo-  Dan in England. It came first that  night. I woke in" the dark and  found the room rapidly gruwing light.  Distinct beams of light appeared to  .-shine from wall to wall and at,  last to form a dim circle. Then  -narks���������horrid croapiug marks���������appeared on the brlgiit circle, and these  ji-adually shaped thmselves into the  .ingers of a moving hand. It was  ��������� ike a human hand cut off at the  wrist,-and it began���������o God! I swear  to you - began to write slowly on  tho wall. The lettsrs grew into words  and -- words grew into a sentence.  At last I read In a strangely formed  ���������yaiigraph the awful warning:  Pi!I'*PARE TO MEET THY GOD  "I was terrified to death and unable to move; and as 1 watched,  speli bound, the fearful letters faded  away and tlie room was left in utter  darkness  again.  I lay thc rest of the night reflecting on tlie apparition and wondering  whether it was meant for me or for  Tom. or for both of us. When daylight icturned my nerves felt rather  more steady, for the room was exactly as usual, and showed no sign  of i-e ghostly writing. I almost expected to find it indolllbly recorded  on i..c wall. I thought perhaps Uie  whole thing had been a nightmare,  and determined' to Bay not a word  about it. but to sleep alone in thc  room again,, and see if it were re-  "That was the day you sent mo  'o bed early; and. being' worn out  as a result of thc previous night's ex-,  perlence. I soon' fell Into a fitful" doze.  On one ot my awakenings I found  t'.at tlie room was getting light Just  as before. Tne circle reappeared, tho  ��������� irks on, 11, tho great black hand,  the gradually formed letters, but the  warning was different.   It was:       -   -  .  -GOD    SHALL   JUDGE*  I spran: ~ out ��������� of  my  bod  and rushed  i.   the  writing.   I   put   my  hand   on  it-,  bor.'lie sable signs, and    it vanished iiwtantly.    It was no.dream.  "Vou fan imagine the condition in  which I awaited the break of. day.  "... die! net call my. husband", fori had  ���������in indefinable 'sense that some danger, in which he was concerned, was  im;.ending in this room, and that a  "���������anting h;,d been vouchsafed to me  'i':U be vould be unable" to perceive  -vlih his different and rather unbe-  ieving  "oiistitution.  "This   morning    he   insisted   upoD  ->'y going witlKhis to Great Malvern;  "ni?   while we-wore  away  from   this  fearful  bouse' I felt a sense  of free-  lom and regained,a measure of com-  pasurc.   I   began   almost   to        nk  igain.  as the days went.by, that the  vhole thing must have teen a passing  naduess, and determined,  on  my re-  urn  to spend  yet one-more night in  he room alone before asaing him to  :omu  back   to me.  "Rut last ui0nc was more horrible  .han all. I awoke with a great start  inb lackness.

Then the dim circle be-  van to appear'in the same hideous  outlnie, and as. It got brighter the  hand traced slowly the cruel doom:  Y.OUR HOUR IS NIGH  I .fainted away, and recollect nothing  moro until daylight this morning._  ���������As-'sh"e_sp"ok"e~lrroc"curfed~to~me"'thaf  the wholo appearnce must he nothing  more than a vivid hallucination���������possibly the .��������� ..- *rcr of Insanity. If so  it had an extraordinary, physical effect, allowing for the girl's delicately strung nerves and -artistic temperament. Still, f'-. effort must be made  to fathom the mystery.  "Answer me one question more  truly,"' I urged. "Do you know of  anyone who has a grudge against  you?"  "Doctor," she replied with a troubled look in her innocent eyes, "as  far ss. I know, I never Injured a living creature. I nevt- disagreed with  any on.- much, except an> Italian in  my stage days, who would persist  in wanting to marry me after I was  pledged to Tom."  "KIe name?"  "Count BeUon:, a vile creature;  but 1 have never seen or reard anything of him for a year."     0  That night Tom Whyte and I entered into a little conspiracy. I asked him and his wife across to dinner, nominally io stop Margaret from  brooding, hut having got them away  from home insisted on keeping them  for the. night. Tom, pretended to refuse and then to assent; aud I hinted  to Margaret that if he were in any  dange.- it was at least lessened while  he was with me, and so" gained her  acceplance of. the invitation. When  they bad ' retired I went across with  Tom's latchkey, let myself into his  house unknown, even to his servants,  and prepa spend thc night sit  ting   in   his   bedroom.  As I waited, thinking deeply about  the mystery, I-became more than ever  convince., that a hallucination was  the true key to the trouble. _ There  is said to be a kink somewhere in  tho mental constitution of everyone of ub; and surely, I thought, there  must bn somo such explanation,  which would put these wlerd vlsi-  -���������'lioiifc into the category of Imaginings, -a? meditation ou the path-  o'ocy (,. -- matter were rudely Interrupted, .no room was filled with  an Instantaneous flood of white  light which came and went in a  ���������mro'id, loav'rc evervthintr totallv  dprk.

Thc "ash appeared and  vanl.tcd   a  second    time,  as  before.  thought positively, that here was evr  dence i. -ich destroyed the hallucination theory, for I was in prosaic  health. I even reasoned unintention-  tioually that here was a fiash whose  first appearance would wake a sleeper, and whose second, when he had  ben disturbed, would complete his  awakening.  .-l'n began the most appalling  moment of concentrated horror that  has fallen to my lot. I am held professionally to have good operating  nerve, but to think of that brief Interval even now s;nds a chill down  my ban;. At the time my eyes  seemed to start from my head, and  my hands were lifted up In horror.  S.owly, but steadily, the white circle  grew on ...._ wall. There was a dark  ark in the centre, which gradually  formed Itself in to the awful hand  whose writirg pronounced doom. Instant y the word painting of the Book  of Waniel rushed into my mind.  "Ia .-e same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over  a ainst the candlestick upon the p'aster of the wall of the king's palace;  an. the king saw the part of the  hand that wrote. Then the king's  countenance was changed, and his  thout,..^s troubled him, so that the  joinl of his lions were loosened,  ad his knees smote one against the  other."  And   even   while     these     thoughts  coursed   through   my   burning   brain  the   hand   began   to  write.   It   traced  onc fcartul word and only one:  "TEKEL."  Daniel himself had translated that  portentions symbol: "Thou art  welched in the balances and found  wanting."  The vision disappeared from my  unw....iig gaze, and I was again sitting in the darkness. How long I  remained comatose I cannot say.  Ultimately t lighted the gas and found  that it was twenty minutes" past  three The power of thought seemed  to return to me slowly: but after a  time I recovered my mental faculties  and began to try and unravel the  tannic. The hallucination theory  benig obviously Impossible. I began  to look for a physicial explanation.  I was still at it in a dull kind of  a   way   when   the   dawn   of   another  dav broke, and then I began to  to think that , I could see light in a  double sense.

Three cheers were given,  and on a signal from Lady Russell  the boat and cradle glided safely into  the water.  As uie Shamrock reached midstream she collided with a large barge,  the bow of the yacht striking below the waterline and making a hig  dc-nt. The full extent of the damage  done her has not been ascertained  as  the despatch was sent.  There was a great cry when the  Shamrock struck. But it was soon ascertained that the damage done was  slight and a tug towed the yacht  towards thc Southwest, India dock.  Hundreds of whistles and horns made  a tremendous din. When the Shamrock was launched her crew and a  large unmber of workmen were on  board. The canvas screens covered  only' about 12 feet of her bow and  slern. The three top plates, which  are made of- alloy, were painted a  l.ea green. Below she was a brilliant  bronze resembling gold. The mystery  in regard to her dimensions was continued. No official figures were obtainable, but a man who worked  her says her length over all is  feet,, her water line^ is 85 feet.

Arthur Scaife. lhe London correspondent uf the Victoria Times, lias  the following remarks on the absence  of a Canadian exhibit, at the "Greater  Britain" exhibit at Karl's (Jourt this  year:  Loxno.N", June 8.���������-The subject of this  year's exhibition al. Hurl's' Court is  that, of "Greater Britain." A large  order it. will lie conceded, but, nut  apparently large enough to include  Canada and or any of her provinces.  I was always under the" impression  until the other evening when I took  my seat in the groat wheel (in the  vain hope, alas, that it would stop  running and entitle nm to n five  pound note for involuntary detention)  thai, the Dominion formed a not unimportant pari, ef Her Majesty's possessions. Surely 1 have, heard it, alluded  to in after-dinner speeches as " llio  brightest jewel in llio Britisli crown!"  BnMliis is evidently a fond illusion  existing onlv in llie poetical imagination of post prandial orators. At  any rate, Camilla forms no part of  "Greater Britain" as demonstrated at  Fail's Court, or it' she does the fact  was not visible to the linked eye of  vour humble scribe and servant.  Though lie searched dilligently I'or lliu  space of three hours he could (iml no  evidence of her existence save only a  photograph of the city of Vancouver  (slowed away in a back corner). JN'mv,  I particularly wish to lieacciiiale. I do  nut say Lliere i.s no exhibit i-incoming  Canada and all her works. I merely  state Mint I could not find it. which,  seeing llie nature of my researches  nnd on the assumption llint there is  one. speaks volumes for lhe care laken  by the authorities in concealing its  whereabout..  Do lell me in your next anil a blest,  editorial why it, is that, Canada should  have chosen this of all occasions to  lii.le her light tinder a bushel when  she had such a glorious opportunity <*>f  showing forth her good works Iiy and  to the million. Tlie same, request  applies, only rather more so, to British  Columbia.  Fnr "GreaterBritain" (miiiusalways  the Dominion) a.s represented at llu;  exhibition, I have nothing but praise.  The whole thing is very well done and  calculated to inspire one wit.li a feeling  if pardonable pride at the thought of  belonging lo so vast, so mighty, so  wealthy an -Empire.  Trout Lake Celebration  There was a rare time at, Trout Lake  City on tlie First. A fine programme  of all kinds of sports, including boat  races, horse iaces,.athletic sports and  drilling contests was carried out. The  Lardeau football team had it all their  own way with the Revelstoke boys,  who were too light, for their opponents,  tlie result being being a win for Lardeau by three goals to nothing. The  festivities wound up with an exhibition of fireworks in tlio evening. The  Revelstoke brass band were there and  their performance was much appreciated by those who took in the trip  down tlie lake to Selkirk ��������� and the  dunce, while tliey furnished music for  I he service on Sunday as woll', and 1 he  Trout Luke people enjoyed it all the  time."

TIIE PASSING SHOW  Mr. Scaife's London letter to the  Victoria Times, which appears in  another column, reveals a most disgraceful state of alfairs. Tliere is a  great, exhibition, intended to set forth  the resources of lhe Empire, going on  at TCniTs Court in London and of all  the colonies und dependencies of the  Kmpire, Cnnada alone is totally unrepresented. This exhibition will be  visited by thousands of people, iL will  form the. finest ndverlisetiient imaginable, displayed among the very people  whose ignorance of Canada and  Canadian aifiirs we nre always deploring nod yet not one single government out of the eight, or nine al.  present, governing or misgoverning  the various provinces of the Dominion  and tlie Dominion as n whole have  thought it worth while lo make n  single exhibit.. Can we wonder that  British capital does not come our way  when we make no elfort to set I'orlh  the numerous fields of prolitnble  ��������� investment for the millions now  locked up in Hie old loimlry awaiting  Ihe capilalist, in Canada? A few  thousands out or thai, million, whicli  Mr. (lotion wants lo contribute to the  Pncilie cable as nn adverliseineiil.  would hnve done immense service if  expended on collecting n really wi  chosen nnd ntl rad ively displayed  collection of lirilish Columbia minerals, (o mention only (he one field of  industry in which Koolenny is specially interested. Tlie government is  gelling up ,-i collection for Paris nexl  year. Why in tho miuu; of common  sense did tliey not have it ready for  Mie " Greater Britain " exhibition now  being held in London. The same  collection would have answered for  both exhibitions and the additional  expense would have been trifling coin-  pared to tlie ad van I ago gained by  having a good exhibit on view in  London this summer. The government nre greatly to blame for their  neglect and lack of enterprise in this  matter.  Tho Atlin district is stewing in the  juice of the Attorney-General's anti-  alien proclivities. The mining record  ollice is simply a mass of confusion.  Claims have been staked nnd re-staked  until the real owner is impossible of  discovery. The miners, both Canadian .'is well us American, have held  mass meetings and forwarded petitions tn Viol oi-ia showing the chaotic  condition into which the district has  been thrown. Itis stat.od that 3.U.  Graham has thrown up his position of  gold commissioner. Tlio confusion is  in fact bevond thepowerof any official  to straighten out. And the whole,  trouble . is distinctly traceable to  Martin's play to the gallery in excluding aliens from recording placer  claims. The Atlin'districtstarted into  existence as a placer mining camp in  exactly the same "way as scores of  olher camps have been started in  British Columbia, quietly, along the  old lines, with every ' prospect of  developing into n camp which would  bring both business to our provincial  trade centres and revenue lo the provincial treasury. The arrival of Joe  Martin with his claptrap appeal to tlie  prejudices of tlie unthinking in tbe.  alien exclusion legislation swallowed  by his party last, session altered lhc  entire aspect, of alTnirs.' The American  miners who had gone in their in good  faith found (lint, their claims could siot  be recoidi.'d and that they were being  jumped by native born patriots. Dispute followed on dispute with the  result thai, nobody can get. a claim  recorded at nil. lhe district is tliinwn  back, the gold fields art: .lying unpin-  ductive.' business is stagnant nnd tlie  country is full of infuriated miners  demanding to know what i.s responsible for this condition of affaiis.  which i������ unparalleled in t.he history of  mining in British Columbia.''

Judge Irving was addressing a  large crowd of ininers at, nn open air  meeting on one of the streets, the  crowd being made up nf all nationalities with Canadians largely pro-  dominating. The story goes lhat tbo  judge informed the crowd that he had  come among them for lhe purpose of  straightening ont all entanglements  and controversy regarding the ownership of .claims, which announcement,  the crowd cheered lustily. Further  along in hisv remarks Justice Irving  announced that, in cases where the  ownership of a claim was being contested, -such claimant, no mutter  whether there be two or twenty, will  be required to pny into court, the. sum  ol $2.**> before his case will be considered.
