man an accident, which would up and an order sent away for
two diamond lockets, which
will be presented to the heroes
of the occasion.
75 delegates were present from
all parts of the riding and proxies from 170 were represented.
The convention opened shortly lifter 2 p. m., Mr. Chas. A.
Semlin, ex-Preinier of British
Columbia, being voted to the
chair. 8. C. Burton was appointed secretary.
The committee on credentials
announced the following representation :
Similkameen, 6; Okanagan,
54; Kamloops, 36; Cariboo, 7;
Lillooet, 8; Greenwood, 5; Grand
Forks, 22; Yale 13. Total 151,
Id view of tlie improbability
of an immediate election, as
was anticipated when the convention was called, and the fact
that the time afforded the outlying districts to appoint delegates was insufficient, it was not
deemed advisable to select a
delegate at this meeting, and a
motion to that effect made by
Mayor Burrill of Grand Porks,
and seconded by Mr. Robinson,
of Peaohland, was unanimously
passed.
Mr. Graham, of Armstrong,
moved, and Mr. Stoddard, of
Kelowna, seconded and it was
unanimously resolved that the
convention proceed with the
formation of a Central Liberal-
Conservative Association for the
Yale-Cariboo, jlistriet, and ou'
the motion of Mr. Wolfendeii or
Enderby, seconded by Mr. Crowell, it was resolved to make
Kamloops the headquarters of
the Association and it was carried unanimously.
Mr. Burrill moved and Mr.
Robinson seconded, and it was
carried unanimously, that the
Association be formed of a Hon.
President, President, Secretary,
Treasurer and two Vice-Presidents, and two members of Executive from each riding.
The meeting )then proceeded
to the election of officers, which
was as follows:
Hon. li. L. Borden, Hon.-
President.
G. A. Semlin, r Ashcroft, President.
J. T. Robinson, Kamloops,
Secretary.
Osborne Morris, M. D„ Vernon, W. A. Johnson, H. A. Nar-
raway,Cariboo; Donald Graham
John Dilworth, Okanagan; W.
Saul, W. A. Abercrotubie, Lillooet; James Watt, Similkameen; James Kerr, E. G. Warren, Greenwood; G. W. Rum-
berger, Mayor BurrelJt Grand
Porks; G. N. Barclay, M. Dum-
o»d, Yale; J. P. Shaw, James
Gill, Kamloops; Executive.
A resolution was then offered
by Mr. Wolfendeii, and seconded by Mr. Sutherland, that Con
servatives in the convention
assembled express its unbounded confidence in the leader of
the Conservative party, the
Hon. R. L. Borden, and pledge
themselves to heartily support
the.Conservative party iu the
next contest. This motion was
passed with much enthusiasm
and afterwards busines of importance was takon up and several interesting discussions took
place.
The question of adjournment
of the convention then came up
and a spirited discussion arose
as totlTe advisibilityjof adjourning to a fixed date and it was!
dkK-ibed that it was better to
meet at the call of the Executive.—Standard.
of east bound passengers.
About eight miles east of North
Bend, as the passengers who
had finished dinner in the dining
car were strolling back to their
sleepers, tliere came a sharp
shock whicli threw many of
them off their feet, followed by
a second one even more severe,
and almost immediately the
train stopped.
Many of the men jumped off
to see, what had happened, but
the night had already set in and
the rain was pouring in torrents
so most of them returned to tlie
shelter of the cars to look up
the conductor, when they found
that the cause of the trouhle
had been a huge log washed
down the mountain side by tlie
heavy rains of Saturday and
Sunday which had lodged partly on the rails.
The engine had shoved it off,
but the shock had been so great
that the engineer, James Foster,
of Kamloops, applied the emergency brakes, and brought the
train to a standstill. He had
sighted the log when it wus but
a short distance ahead, near the
edge of a deep canyon spanned
by a trestle bridge. Before the
traiu stopped the engine and
tender were out on the bridge,
and the engineer and fireman
had to creep out on the slippery
Un.i.Hi's o£ the, bridge to see
how much damage na3~ been
done to the pilot.
They had gone but a few feet
when they realized that the
whole structure was swaying
and would soon fall. The passengers who had reached tlie
front then witnessed a deed of
of heroism.
The canyon is over 100 feet
deep, and at the bottom runs a
mountain torrent, while a short
distance beyond is the Fraser
river. The engineer and fireman, A. Greatrex, realized that
if the engine was upset in its
present condition au explosion
would certainly follow aud although the bridge was on tlie
point of falling, they jumped on
the cab aud quickly turned the
cold water into the boiler.
They rushed out again as the
engine was going over the brink
but fortunately both the brave
fellows were able to clutch the
bushes on the edge and climb up.
The bridge collapsed a moment later and fell to the bottom
of the canyon, most of it to fall
into the Fraser. The engine followed, drawing the tender and
a portion of the express car over the edge, but fortunately the
coupling between the two latter broke. Tho engine and tender followed tho bridge, but ropes
were quickly got out and the
express car tied back.
A handcar was obtained, on
which a couple of the train men
went biick to North Bend, and
sent up another engine, whicli
towed the train back. On Monday a foot bridge was run
across the canyon abovo whore
the trestle had been and tho
the passengers were brought
forward again and transferred
to a waiting train on the other
Side.
When they saw the canyon
by daylight, and realized what
a wonderful escape there had
been, an address was prepared
The Bodle Mine.
The Bodie mine lies nearly
one mile north of the town of
Bodie, on Torodo creek, and
ahout 10 miles south of Midway
The mine, is located on the crest
ofa ridge fully one thousand
feet above the bed of Torodo
creek. While tlie lodge has 6*u-
ly bf-nn cut by tunnel to a depth
of 450 feet, it could bo tapped
by a comparatively short tunnel
to a depth of 900 feet, and still
leave room for ample dump and
permit tho oro to bo sent by
gravity to tho mill.
No. 1 tuiiol is 135 feet in
length, aud is connected with
the surface .with a sliiiffc 100 foot
in depth. Tho ledge has been
drifted upon for a distance of
118 feet. The ledgo varies iu
width from five to nine foot.
No. 2 tunnel has a length of
425 feet and cuts the ledge at a
leptli of 200 foot below thb apex
of the ledgo. At that level lhe
vein has been drifted upon for
aleugtli of 330 feet. Tho oro
body varies from seven to nine
feet iu width, but is continuous
throughout its entire length,
lu this level a winze has been
sunk to a depth of 00 feet and
the ledgo drifted upon for a
distance of 175 feet. The width
of the ore body does not vary
materially in size from that in
the No. 2 level. To the eye
there is very little difference in
-feUV.H.iiuii'1111'- iif tlio ofn. lmt
it is said to be considerably
richer.
No. 3 tunnel cuts the ledge at
a depth of 3258 foot. It has been
drifted upon for a distil nee of
nearly 600 foot. It i.s considerably jwider than in the level
above, being from nine to thirteen foot iu width. Tho ore
varies somewhat in values in
different places on this level, but
tho average is'such as assures
line profits after the expense of
mining and milling has boon
deducted.
No. 4 tunnel euts the lodge at
a distance of about 450 feet
from its portal, and has boon
drifted upon for about 250 foot.
Tho ledge at' this level is much
wider than at the throe huudrod
being not far from 20 foet.
The mine is thoroughly ventilated and opened iu such shape
on all levels as to permit of a
largo force being employed in
stoping. Work is in progress
on tho 200, 250, 300, and 450 foot
levels, but no stopings will bo
done until thc mill is ready to
take the ore.
The tank material is on the
ground for the fifty ton plant
and the machinery is looked for
daily. Some of it has been .on
the cars seven weeks, and tho
rest four weeks* and is therefore
past due.
The excavation for thc plant
is practically completed aud tho
timber and lumber is nearly all
sawed. Tbo conipany has a fine
saw mill which is capable of cutting 20,000 foot per day.
A wagon road from the mill
to tho mouth of No. i tunnel is
well advanced. The company
has a bunk house, boarding
house, and a supply store. Sixty men are on the pay roll.
Thirty of these are employed in
the mine. Others in erecting a
barn, cutting timber and wood,
and in operating the sawmill.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7,1MB,
The New York Sun recalls the
fact that a geography that was
pulished only 35 years ago included the following bit of in
formation: "It is generally sup
posed that the climate of the
North West Territories is so
severe that the country must
remain a desolute waste." Last
year this "desolute waste" produced 65,000,000 bushels of
wheat, 157,000,000 bushels of
oats and 35,000,000 bushels of J
barley, taxing to their utmost
the resources of the railways in
moving the crop. What will
the next 35 years bring forth?
those 520,000 or v2 per cent., went
to tho United States, and only
90,000 or 13 per cent to Bristish
North America, Since January
first Canada has attracted almost half as many British immigrants as she did in ten years
preceding 1900.

Now York.
With the prorogation of Parliament ends the hope of the
Opposition that the Committee
on Elections and Privileges
would tako up the charge of
forgery in connection with the
anti-Grand Trunk Pacific petl
tions. It will be recalled that
the leader of the Government
and several of his followers
charged that the taint of the
fraud was attached to these
protests. The matter was re*
"forred to a committee weeks
ago; the Conservatives have
been in readiness ever since to
go on with the matter. The
slanderers, however, realizing
that thoy could not substantiate their insinuations, have deliberately smothered the matter.
The investigation never got beyond tho appointment of the
chairman of the committee.
Once he was appointed he went
off home. The committee,
therefore, to all intents and
purposes ceased to exist. There
ims seldom been a more indecent, exhibition of the abuse of
parliamentary privilege, than
the manner iu which these
petitions were dealt with by
the Liberals, First they jeered
at them, then they denounced
them as fraudulent, and finally
they have declined to face the
disproof of their calumnies.
The petitions bore thesignatures
of nearly 100,000 taxpayers, who
are thus shown how little, their
requests or interests are heeded
by the present Government.
The days of waiting for population are drawing to a close.
Canada has been discovered, or
rather rediscovered, for over
half a century ago the Irish
famine and the clearings in the
Highlands drove great swarms
of settlors into Upper Canada
anil raised it from the position
of a series of straggling settlements into it powerful anil populous province. The west seems
destined to have a similar rush,
Figures just issued at Ottawa
show that the immigrant arrivals in Canada for tho nine
months of the present calendar
year ending on October 1st
numbered 108,012 or 39,182 in
excess of tho total for the
samo period of last year. Of
this year's immigrations 43,187
came from the British Isles,
32,198 from tiie Continent of
Europe and 32,320 from the
United States. In 1902 the immigrant arrivals were: British
10,079; continental, 25,230; the
United States, 20,017, Por the
first quarter of the present
fiscal year ending ou Sept. 30,
the arrivals were 20,987 as
against 23,3<S1 for tho same threo
months in 1902. The British
arrivals wore 12,178, an increase
of 0,133, the continental arriva's
7,218, au increase of 2 IS, and tne
American 7,291, a decrease of
2 735. The extraordinary diversion of British iminigrats from
the United Stales to Canada is
made evident by the fact that.
MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS.
According to a dispatch from
Regina, a bill will be introduced in the legislative assembly,
now in session, to provide for
the whole territories lieing divided into counties, with a simple and inexpensive administration, which will leave the management of local affairs, such as
roads, bridges, etc., in the
hands of the people themselves, instead of the authorities at Regina. This is the
course usually pursued throughout Canada: to give the people
from time to time increased au-
tomony. It has not, however,
found favor with British Columbia legislators, as the people
of this section, and, we doubt
not, of many other sections of
the province know to their
cost. Prior to i899, the construction of roads, trails' and
bridges in the unoi'gari>.t)d districts was left to the government agent and foreman and
superintendents working under
his supervision. In that year,
during the first soss.on of the
legislature under the Semliii
government, an act was passed
which placed the construction
of roads and bridges under the
direct supervision of the Chief
Engineer at Victoria. A policy
of centralisation was, in the
wisdom of the then Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works,
pursued, instead of decentralisation or increased autonomy,
flow has it worked? After the
lapse of over four years We are
in a position to judge the results.   During the session men
tinned libfiv*  *x**   **.ppi-o|»rittClon
was made to construct a wagon
road up the West Fork of Kettle
river to the flourishing mining
camps in the vicinity of Beaver
ton. The amount was small;
the government was short of
money as they, generally are.
The engineer decided, it seems,
to put about ninety per cent of
this money into a hridge near
the mouth of the West Fork:
and there it stands to day, after
the lapse of nearly five years,
with the road to Beaverton
still unfinished, and, of course,
a structure of that kind which
was designed,, it was said to en
able heavy mining machinery
to be drawn over it, is of no
morebeneiittothe few people
who have occasion to travel in
that country, than a much less
expensive and lighter structure.
Protests were made at the time
against this policy of the government, but they were not
heeded; and the officials responsible for it, have since
stultified themselves by erecting
two less costly and lighter
bridges hi > ther up the West
Fork. The road, as we have
said, is not yet completed; work
was stopped for want of funds;
yet it is well known that up to
date successive governments
have expended two dollars for
every one that would have been
needed to com; le e the work.
What then are the results of
this centralisation policy? A
depopulated country, mines and
claims lying idle, no or very
little money for the provincial treasury. If this system
has had similar results in other
parts of the province, to those
is this, and wo believe it has, it
is no wonder the treasury is|
depleted and the government
propose to borrow, a mil.
lion more or less. It ig
sometimes well, wo think,
for inexperienced legislators to
leave things as they find them;
and if the/ decide to make
changes, to make sure that tin y
will he in the right direction.

__ tho great reason for the prevalence
of bad roale throughout the United
Btatee Is lack *t agreement and united
■ctloa aasmg the advocates of Improvement Everybody prefers good
roadt to bad. Everybody know- that
tke roadi cat be improved only by the
expenditure ef money and labor. But
here' tbe agreement end*. There to a
great variety of Ideal and achemea for
■ecu-ring the dealred object There la
no end of discussion, but very little It
accomplished. Home people would rather travel through mud than have the
roadt Improved by any other plan than
their own "pet scheme." Tlmt road
reformer! themtelvet tometlinos actually hinder the caute to which they are
devoted. f
If the roadt of thlt country are to be
made good within the lifetime of the
pretent generation It li high time the
advocatet of good roadi should unite
in lupport ef a few general propotl.
tlona and goto work- in favor ofa general plan. |f a national good roadi
movement ever gets ttirted nothing
can ttop It It will tweep everything
before It But tbe difficulty it to get
It started.
One great;advantage pwieiied try
the national aid plan, which It now becoming io popular, ia tbat it If general Instead ef aectienal or local. It It
aa bread ai the whole country. It cap
bring Into harmaaMs united action
the friends of good roadt tn every
■tote, and It It tke only plan yet pro-
peted that can de thia.
Tbe friendi ot national aid will make
a mlitake if they undertake to work
out detail! In advene*.- They ihould
go to work for the general principle
and leave detail! to be worked ont
later. Thlt wat the plan of actloa
adopted by Oladatone. When hit opponents aiked for detallt of any great
reform which ke advocated Gladitone
would answer, "There will be time
enough te work out the detail when
we get the power." The advocates of
national aid will do well to emulate
tbe etamplo of this great English
statesman. They ahould organise
everywhere aad tight for the principle,
leaving detallt to be worked eut la
doe time.

Whenever anything happens to a
trolley car that causes It to come to
a standstill someone Is sure to explain that there haa been a "blow
out." Very often it is nothing of
tha kind, and even when it Is, very
tew passengers know what a blow out
it.
As a matter of fact, the "blow
out." while it is an accident to tht
extent of stopping thc car temporarily, ia really Ihe happening of pre-
tlscly what it waa intended should
happen in order to avoid aa accident. Tht fuut is simply a piece of
metal of smaller heat resisting power than tho real of tht circuit, and
yet sufficient to carry the eurrottt
necessary for running th* motor, set
In as a segment in tha feed wire us
near to the point of supply as pot
slble. Tht fust it definitely gauged
for a given current. Thus, if 400
amperes represent the danger point,
and 200 the current employed, the
luse would lie gauged to resist some
current between the two. and it
would mell when the healing effect
of tho current exceeded tha melting
point of the fuse, thereby breaking
the circuit.
I'he melting of tht fute it Its
"blowing out," and Is accompanied
by moro or less noise nnd commotion, according tn tho slretiglii of tho
current and the resisting power of the
fuse. UeraiiHi thc accompanying
commotion Is able to endanger nearby equipment if unrestrained the fuse
Is placed in a fuse box, constructed
of pome nnn-comixtine fireproof material, and the whole isolated, at far
aa possible, from other wiring.
The circuit breaker is designed to
accomplish exactly the same purpose
as the fuse, antl in one of its varieties introduces the fuse idea. Another form consists of an electro magnet, with a pliui'ier holding in place
a trigger, making tho circuit between
the two ends of the feed wire. The
magnet Is gauged to carry a certain
current—as with the case of tho
fuse—without magnetizing the plunger, but when the danger point is
passed tho plunger, becoming magnetised, is drawn away, the trigger
released and tho circuit Is broken.
The advantage urged for the ciicuit
breaker It that it acts practically instantaneously, whllo the fuse takes
an appreciable titno to blow out
when tht retistanct limit hns been
reached, and tho circuit breaker,
moreover, is supposed not to create
such a disturbance in performing iti
•-aoeii-t<a) duty
rroyfliio tne4Utt there is the controller box, at the next possible seat
ef special disturbance, then the main
cut-off ■ i»ii.k !««"»« int' controller and tht motor, for tht purpose of cutting nut tht latter when
any difficulty arises or It la dealred
to disconnect tht running gear, and,
Anally, the motor itsoll. Over and
above all these, defective Insulation
in tha wiring may at any tlmt let
tht current loose on the portloni. ot
the ear where it wat never Intended
to go, or atari a smudge in tht
wrapping ot the wlret, which com* {
municates itself It tht woodwork.
Tht manner in whieh a, "blowout," or kindred accident, may happen, then, ia this, starting with tht
fuse or circuit breaker: First, tat
fuse or circuit breaker may tail t*
do Itt work, and let a greater current into tht parts beyond than waa
intended, burning out wiring at any
point, setting tiro to tha controller
box, or, if the main cut-oil does not
disconnect tht motor In time, burning out tht motor, and possibly tttr
ting tht ear on lira.
Second, the fuse or circuit breaker
itself, if Improperly protected and
not isolated from adjoining wiring,
may, In "blowing out," burn wiring
nearby or start e, fire on itt own ao
count. Further, If dust or dirt getting ia tht mechanism of the controller box Intro luces too small re-
elutanee. tha heat generated is likely
to burn out connections even with a
normal current, and, ultimatley to
