MONDAY. OCTOBER 10, IMW
Result of the Plebiscite.
The promise given In lhe people by
Sir Wilfred Laurier, before he became
Canada's premier, has been fiillllleil
and throughout Hie length and breadth
of the land citizens have liad an opportunity to record their views upon the
great question of prohibition.
That the "esult can be said to furnish
a true expression of popular opinion
can hardly he claimed hy eilher those
in favour of or againsl prohibition, for
the returns show that unly about one
third or even less of those entitled to
vole exercised their prlvlledge, thereby
demonstrating that the masses look
upon lhe question with a guod deal of
indifference.
As those in favour of prohibition
worked much harder than theirnppon*
aula, mid no doubt had attained lo
more complete organization! the vote
Oil their side may be said to fairly represent their strength, while on the
other hand those who voted against,
prohibition, may he said tn represent
thuse who were more directly interested [commercially] io the outcome,
The one half or three fourths of the
voting population of the Dominion
who failed to give expression lu their
opinion, may be said to represent the
leinperati* poition nf the community,
and as these regard tlle question ns one
of priviledge, and the enforcement of
prohibition as in acl which would Interfere with their liberty, lhey, should
occasion require, would no doubt
range themselves upun the side of tin*
anti-prohibitionists, and thus it may
lie snid Ibnl fur tlie presenl ut leasl,
the question is one which is sliil io si
very unsettled state, uml Icing iu such
state will hardly commend itself to lhe
attention of the  governuienl,
Coming Home to Roost.
The following was found io a recent
issue of the Victoria Colonist. "The
salmon curried over tbe Great Northern—nnd so far the most Uinl, hns gone
forward from Victoriitjhasheen handled
by this route—is landed at Duluth and
thence shipped to Sariiin, Out., where
it, is again loaded nn the cars. Victoria
is just, now doing a very large business,
and a satisfactory feature nf il is tliat
so large a porlion is on Kootenay oc-
couut. Mann, Foley Brothers & Larson, thi contractor for tho liuililing nf
the Western brunch line nut nf Brooklyn, alone have had sent, Ihem during
the last month seven cars of powder,
and four cars of groceries besides having placed orders in local
merchants' hands fur six carsof canned
goods from the Easl lu be shipped direct to them. The powder nnd groceries
have all gone over the (Is cat Northern
and the agent of this line, Mr. J. H.
Rogers, reports that while freights are
heavy from Victoria they are also
heavy to Victoria,"
Hnwli'iiiy lines the abuve point the
linger nf.scorn against the people of
the coast, and those party organs
which lunk sides against the residents
of Bnunilary creek when lhey were
moving heaven an.l earth (or trying to)
to induce the federal government lo
grant n charier whicli had if lieen
granted v oulil have insured competitive railway transportation frinn nil
points east and west, and would have
given to this district prcviledges of
inestimable value.
Led on by a blind and no doubt interested party press, the people nf the
cuast brought pressure tn bear un the
then Turner government, with the
result that the government petitioned
the federal authorities tint to grant tho
Ooi'bin charter,
Bow foolish was Ibe action taken,
and how against their own interests
did lhe peuple nf the coast move, has
perhaps been hroiighl home lu thein
lung ere this, and if nut surely the
above will shew Ihem plainly, how
much, even .up lo Ibe present they
have Insl, by helping lu kill the project, which wnnlil have given an alternative freighl route to one nf the
richest sect ions of the whole Dominion,
and how much they will I.ise in lbe
fui ure when Ihe C. P. H, extension
now lieing Iniill will bring llie markets
nf the east, in touch witb customers iu
this disirici. and virtually cut off the
trade which under other ciiTunisinnccs
might havu lieen enjoyed by coast
merchants,
Truly "Ihe chickens are coining
home to roost" nnd lhat too early  in
the day, when we are Informed
thl'JIIgh Iho columns of the Colonist,
that the cnnli'iiilui's. the very peuple
abuve allnlhers which should patronize
the C. P. R. are hauling their supplies
to be used on Ihe const rucl inn nf an
extension of lhe Canadian Pin-Hie, the
Riilisnn-Midway railway, over an
American mad, thus clearly demonstrating that lhe contention nf the
people of Boundary cieek was nm at
all overdrawn, when lhey nsstirt d the
Dominion Government that a competitive system of railway II'tinspop-
lation was necessary for the develop*
in. in of ihisdisi rid, and Iho well being

of Schaumburg-Lippe, hnd a narrow
escape from death  while driving at
Dal ral, Scotland, un Monday the
3rd insl. The coachman lost conlrol

Railway to Cariboo.
There is every probability that the
construction of a railway will be started next spring, what will wind ils way
into the Cariboo country, and will
bnve its initial poinl somewhere on
the 0. P. R. between Ashcroft and
Kamloops, At the last session of the
Brilisli Columbia legislature a charter
was granted to the Cariboo Ominecn
Chartered Company, the object of
whieh was among other things, to Improve tho navigation of the waters of
Fraser, Necbacn and Stewart rivers.
This company has paid a substantial
sum to the owners of the charter of.the
Carihoo Railway Company, granted
some years ngo. This net provides for
the construction of a railway from
some point as ahove staled, to a point
near Bnrkerville. Under tin charter
work muBt commence on the line before May next, and this il i.s said will
be done.

Vernon Exhibition.
Referring lu llie Pail Exhibition
hekl in Vernon a few days ago, the
Vernon News prefaces its write up of
tin* affair by lhe following remarks:
The Annaiil Exhibition nf the Okiinagan ami Spiilluiiiehi'i'ii Agricultural
.Society in previous years has always
been an event which the agricultural
community looked forward tu with
considerable interest. This year there
was not the snme interest apparent,
although the directors and thi.se who
had the management nf Ihc fair in
hand worked witli ;i will and determination to make the event a success, Tin'
success of a fair always, in a large ile
gree, depends on the weather, which
Ibis year could nut lu' snid lu have
been very propitious. Wednesday
was a wet day, and us the weather did
not by any means appear settled,many
.verc thus deterred from coming nml
bringing their exhibits. It was decided that the exhibition should last
through twu days only. On Thursday
morning there was u spell of bright
sunshine, which led many In hope that
the day would yel be line, but- towards
noon rain hegan to fall, which continued nt intervals throughout the
day. Friday brought quite a number
of visitors to the city, but nol, nearly
so many as necessary to make an exhibition a .success. There were quite
u number nf entries, considering the
luck of interest laken in the affair in
somi quarters, It it always a matter
of exceeding difficulty to impress upon
exhibitors the importance of sending
in their entries at as early a date as
pussilile, During tile greater part of
Wednesday iiftornoon anl evening
the various committees were busily
engaged in recoil ing exhibits und placing Ihoin in their proper places.
We think that il. was a mistake to
run the show without some other attraction, such as homo racing, elc.
This was certainly the principal cause
of the hull of Interest, andthe decrease
in attendance, There must be some
sueh Inducement offered beforo outsiders will come in. Next year, however, we are assured that, all these
errors will be rectified, und a Iirsl-class
programme nf horse races, bicycle
races, and nl bee athletic sports will he
provided, The Society is very fortunate iu having secured the service uf

Reference bos already been made in

$600,000, As however lhe output is
rapidly increasing each year It is not
too much In expeel that within a
couple of years lhe farmers of the
Wesl will be saving.-i million dollars
annually in cold easli through this
concession secured fur them from th e
railway by the Government.
Another Big CoNOESSlON.-Another
feature of lliu charter which is only
secondary tu that just mentioned, is
tin* clause whicli provides fur lhe
right of way through thu Pass fur all
future competitors, and already this
is bearing fruit, fur a charter is now iu
existence, granted to the Manitoba k
Pacific Railway Company which proposes to run a line from Portage la
Prairie through liclniuiit and nn tu
Lethbridgc, whero il will strike tlie
Crow's Nest Puss Railway. The
future of this sect inn is assured and its
possibilities are simply incalculable!
nntliing has retarded the development
of the West so much in tlie past as tlie
railway monopoly and nothing will
help on its f utiii'e rapid development
sn much as free access, untrammelled
by exacting restrictions, to all points
where healthy competitive liusiness,
can be secured.
It ia worth while also lo remember
that these with ulher concessions were
secured by the Laurier Government at
lhe cost uf $11,000 ii mile bonus, instead
nl what would have undoubtedly
pioved a $25,000 u mile bonus without
any compensating concessions, as bad
been agreed In by Sic ('bus. Tupper,
Tins Does Not Look Like Cox.
thol.—The time honored nod hoary
headed allegation '.lint lite 0. P. II.
controls the Government and as a consequence owns the country has received
a serious body blow from tlie recent
arrangement between the Government
and tho Grind Trunk Railway by
whieh lhe latter will handle thu Intercolonial wrest hound freight, The late
administration had entered into an
agreement whicli compelled all tlie
west bound freight to pass into fhe
hands of the C. P. II. at St. John's N.
B., but when that arrangement terminated a few weeks ago, the Government dealt with the matter of a renewal upon straight business lines
awarding the business to the company
offering the most favorable terms
Which, an it happens, was the G. T, R,
It is anticipated that fhe new arrangement will very greatly increase
the business of the government road,
in fact, Mr. Reeve the General Traffic
Manager of the (1. T. it. estimates that
It will double its revenue, thus proving one more link In tho chain of improved conditions that are confidently
expected to eventually make this road
a paying instead of a losing property.
Incidentally it inay be pointed out
that this is a further exemplification of
the foresight uml wisdom nf the
Government in extending the Intercolonial 1st .Montreal.

New York, Oct.. -l.—A  dispatch
the Herald from Paris says:
Revisionists und anti-revisionists
seem tn he spoiling for a tight, Capl
uin Dreyfus, weatbnr guilty or in
nncent, bus certainly caused a veritable cyclone of passion to he let loose.
Paris was in a turmoil all Sunday.
Crowds scuffling, uproar and arrests
was lhe program of the last 12 hours.
Al this moment lhe moulded republl-
g certain parts
police are on
the alert.
-Yluiiit.'i score of people are snid to
huve heen seriously wounded in the
various free lights whicli have broken
Ibe monotony of the Parisian .Sunday.
In one quarter alone over 40 arrests
have been made. Of these 13 have
been kepi and the others liberated.
Among Ibe latter is Francis de Pres*
enze, one of the Hist authorities on
foreign politics in France und a lending
writer of the Temps. With him were
arrested M. Earnest Vaughan, dlrectnr
uf the Aut'iii'O, and M. Moiliui'ilt, an-
other of Ibe Temps' editorial stuff.
All three were lo huve addressed a
meeting in favor nf revision io tin*
Dreyfus case, This manifestation was
announced lo he held in the Sillh*
Wiigrain, When M, de Presenile and
hlB colleagues arrived at the meeting
place lhey found il shut and surrounded by a strong cordon nf police, luiisly
engaged iii keeping buck a crowd,
variously estimated ul numbering
frum 12,000 to 20,000 perspns,
In spile nf lie* protests of M. de
Presenze's party, whn hud paid the
rent of lbe hull, lbe pollen refused admission to anyone,    Argi nls and
expostulations were hnth unavailing!!*,
the brigadier uf the police lemalned
Inexorable,
The crowd, however, hud grown impatient nr holder, for it liunliy broke
through Ihe ring nl police, From
crushing lo giving blows was but a step
und many lunk it, The police agents
relumed thein wilh Interest in the
shape nf arrests. At once the light
became general. Tlie pnlice nuide x
charge and drove the crowd buck tn
the pluce (Ins Tel'lies.
Blood flowed iii abundance from
ntises and iu the middle, of the riot Ihe
three organizers nf the meeting weie
arrested by order of M. Bonnier, 'he
pnlice divisinn commissary, and led olf
to the station. They there found company enough and to spare, almost all
hearing the marks nf hnving been

The (Ireal Loss.
Pew people have an idea nf how
terrible wns the storm which swept
over the island of Barbadoos recenlly
and destituted this British possession,
and therefore it will be news to many
to luio.v that aboul 10,000 houses and
I.nil.lin.;-- wore destroyed, seventy
people killed and 50,000 left homeless.
An estimate of the damage done Is
given by lb** governor Sir James Shaw
Hay to tin* Inline government and he
says that 10,217 laborers houses were
destroyed and 1,(111 damaged and to
re-tore these it would cost about §2,-
000,000. This estimate covers only Ihc
losses of the poorer classes, and from
Ibis un idea can be gained nf llu*
terrible de'vistation wrought by lhe
storm.
Ontario Againsl Prohibition.
In 1801- Ontario by a majority vote
nf 80,000 was in favour of prohibition, therefore llu* recent vote
in whicli llu* people nf the provinco
declared in opposition In il. comes as 11
great surprise,
It would seem, however, that lhe
business interests of the larger communities have been amused to the
commercial risks of a prohibitory law,
and it is a remarktiblo fact that only
nne city in Ontario, uamely Brantford,
has on this occasion given a majority
in favor of prohibition.
In 1801,13 cities of Ontario gave a
majority in favor of prohibition
amounting to about 8,'00, Now the
same cities gives majority against prohibition of 8,200, Toronto contributing
8,260 to .'that figure,
The Maritime provinces have gune
ovel'ivhelminglyin favor of prohibition, the majorities in New BrUnsw ick
ami Novii Scotia lieing very large.
Quebec offsets this pretty well with
a majority uf 30.01*0 against.
Ontario's estimated majority against
prohibition is from fi,000 lo 10,(100, but,
returns ure still very meagre from
inan; localities, nnil (bis i.a nut very

THE ADVANCE
LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
A new town named Duluth hns
sprung into existence to the south of
the International boundary line and
opposite to Cascade City.
Judge Spiuks arrived here this morn
ing having came over from Grand
Forks at which point he held a silting
of the County Court un Saturday.
At his ranch near Grand Furks, Mr,
George Sherringhatn, formerly a ivsi-
dent near Vernon, passes!' away on
Thursday lust from an attack of
typhoid fever.
The rumour has lately been Hying
around that Mr. D, D. Slunn when
hero the other day purchased the
Sullivan property to tbe west uf tho
town, but so far this has not been confirmed by any of the parlies inter-
sted.
Although some SO or more persons
voted at this point at tlie lasl proviuci-
ical election yet only about 7 nr H lunk
occasion to express their opinion on
prohibition tbe other day, a.,d these
were to a unit against it. The citizens
of Midway are a temperate people.
Some of the principal outfits intending to operate on tlie heavy rock
work on the north fork of Kettle river
are now establisbii g themselves and ii
is said the "dagoes" are in evidence
like a cloud of locusts. Some of the
contractors having work at that point
are Patrick Walsh, Dan McDonald
and James Walsh.
Mr. T. McDonald of Camp McKinney
is a visitor in town to-day. Mr. Donald came down on business connected
with the transfer of bis and his brothers interest in the St. Louis hotel,
whieh has been purchased by the other
member of tbe firm Mr. .lames Lynch.
Donald Brothers owned n nne half
interest in this property.
Mr. Thomas Humphrey is negotiating Iheporchas ol a half inleresi.in the
St. Louis hotel in Ciunp McKinny from

under Mr. Graff's management is noted
fin* its excellent cuisine, nml it. uill I
admitted by all whn huve happened in
he at some time guests af this hostelry
deservedly so.
G. A. Bonier who was brought up
on a charge nf horse stealing al Grand
Piaicie. ami who was remanded for 8
days, was again before W, II, Norris,
J. P., on Saturday, and the witnesses
for tiie prosecution having been secured and their evidence taken, lhe
magistrate committed tbe accused to
stand Ilis uial, nn the charge preferred againsl him, B'ontcr having
elected to he tried [umler Ihe "Speedy
Trials" Act, will bn brought before
Judge Spinks to-morrow,
Niagara is the latest cecal ism in the
matter of towns. This is silualed on
the North Pork of Kettle river, above
Grand Forks, and just at tbe point
where the 0. k W. railway leaves I he
valley of the river to climb the mountain sides preparatory to entering the
pass whieh will lead it over the range
into the Boundary creek balsin. Fly
Tepute the new town enjoys a commanding position, and at tlie rate property is changing hands it wnnlil seem
tbat tliis contention is fully warranted,
MINING   NOTES.
Under foreman .). Murphy two shift*
of men ate at work on the Waterloo

and thai the property is looking well.
Tomorrow work will be slarled no

ledge matter extending over Jan area
many feet In width, The present is
the initial wurk nn the properly, but
judging from surface appearances, a
splendid budy of ore will lie shown up.
Mr. J. C. Unas U now on the Bruce,
and is Inking pari in tlie work which
is now lieing carried out anil consists
of surface piospeeting. Tin- wnrk
already done demonstrates tbat, what
was considered the wall of the ledge
was really not so, foi breaking inlo it
It was found to be a fine grade of ore
similar in eharacler to the balance nf
the outcrop, Tlle present wnrk being

A New Strike.
Afew days ago a very rich strike
wus made in llic Blue Bell claim,
whicli is situated in Suniinit camp, and
is owned by Mr. William Sliuw uf
Miiiway and Christopher McDonald nf
Rossland, Having started to work it

very near the "li. 0,"
County Court at Midway.
At a sitting if tlie Coiinly Court
lielsl ai Midway to-day, His Honor
Judge Spinks presiding, many cases
were heard and the majority nf no
great, public interest, was sunn disposed
uf.
Two cases on which niuch public
interest centered, were those of Reglna
v. McMillan and Kegina v. Miller .t
Levsuu. In the firs', case that, of McMillan, tbe charge wus that of assault
wiih a deadly weapon, made on a
prospector named James Fnulds at
Greenwood City.
Io lliis case the preliminary hearing
ivus taken hefore Magistrate Hallelliil
Greenwood, anil strong evidence was
adduced on |iehalf nf ibe prosecution,
McMillan was committed for trial and
going to Vernon was brought before
Judge Spinks, lhe Hoeusi-td electing to
he tried under the Speedy Trials'Act.
As ali witnesses resided at Greenwood
the case wasi remanded to Midway to
be heard to day, and in the meantime
McMillan was allowed his llherly after
putt ing up it cash bund uf $200.00, McMillan appeared befure ihe court and
nfler the principal witnesses hail tesli-
I'cil nn behalf of the prosecution an
adjournment wus taken for lunch,
As lhe shades nf a prison life wen*
gathering, and he being allowed tn
enjoy the iecess without restraint, he
took advantage nf his liberty and has
mu since lieen seen.
In I lies,'cuu.I case that nt Miller &
Leyssin lbe purl ics were committed fur
trial by Magistrate Halletl of Green-
i.vuml uu a charge uf keeping a ginning
hnuse at Ihul pluce. Allllouull it, wus
within the jurisdiction uf llie magistrate in have disposed uf the case himself, he preferred sending l| to a higher
cnurl. with the result Ibal, as the
charge wns nut properly preferred, the
"use was dismissed,
To Stamp Out Glanders.
It is said Dr. Christie, Dominion
Velerlniify Surgeon, for this district,
luis received instructions frum the
department at Ottawa tn take rigorous
measures to stamp nut glanders, which
ilisense for snme 'inin past at intervals
basinaile ils appearance among stuck
in this section. It has been customary
to allow cases to proceid to such a
stage, that no shadow of doubt could
exisl astu the character of the complaint before the animals were destroyed, but it would seem tbat, foi* the
fui ure more stringent measures will he
taken osanimills should they hedeemed
In possess the disease even in its preliminary stage, will lie subject, lo destruction.
