lion, which arranged for holding the
convention, was one delegate for every
100 voters or fraction thereof in each
of the following places, according to
the numlter of voters registered on the
roll on March 81st: Anaconda, Carson,
Cascade, Columbia, Eholt and vicinity,
Greenwood, Urand Porks, Gladstone,
Midway, Phoenix, Bock Creek, Rossland, Trail and West Robson and
vicinity. Nearly all these places were
represented, so that numerically the
attendance at the convention included
within live or six of the possible total
number under the arranged basis of
representation. The Boundary part of
the riding was represented by the following 15 delegates: Grand Forks,
Messrs. C. Cumings, Jeff Davis, F. H.
Knight, Ernest Miller and R. F, Petrie;
Greenwood, Messrs,Clive Pringle, Jas.
Kerr and Jtoht. Wood ; Columbia,
Messrs. R. M. Nisbet and A. W. Ross ;

Phoenix, Mr. W. B. Cochrane, and
Summit City, Mr. W. C. Haywood.
Rossland had 17 delegates present and
Trail five, so the tot il representation
was if}. No proxies were allowed, so
Phoenix which sent a proxy, whs restricted to the one delegate in attendance.
The convention met in the Board of
Trade room .ind Mr. A. W. Ross, of
Columbia, whs chosen as chairmen.
The committee on credentials did rot
take long iu performing its duties and
presenting its report, which was
promptly adopted. Before proceeding
to nomination Dr. Bowes read a letter
he had received fio u II.ii, CH Muck'

"Dr. Edward Bowes. President, Li ■■end
Conservative Association,   Hossland,
B. C. :
"Deai- Sir : From articles, in various
newspapers, nnd inliniatloiispersonally
conveyed by leading members of the
Conservative Association, it seems altogether probable that my name will lie
introduced at the forthcoming convention as a candidate, for the Rossland
Riding of West Kootenay. In view of
this 1 deem it only fair to state my
"1 xiu nnt solicitous of nomination,
ami only what my friends have convinced me is a duty to the Province of
British Columbia could for one moment induce men to enter the political
arena nt the approaching political
campaign, nor shall I attempt, with
Ilie design of advancing the interests
of a political party or gaining the conti
deuce thereof, to misled any member
of the convention or any elector in the
"While I believe the Conservative
party has at all times endeavored tb
keep inviolate anti-election promises;
while from my experience I have
learned tn love and respect that party,
1 -am free to confess that the mellowing
influence of public life in various
-msi ions tin* taught me, in times of
emergency, to he willing to adopt
broader than mere partisan views. I
lielieve the present crisis in the affairs
of the Province demands patriotic self-
denial on the part of those who have
con fid ne- in the future of British Co*
liiinliin, mid while I do not presume
to sit iu judgment upon the opinions
of my fellow citizens who differ from
ine, instinct prompts me to suggest a
halt, tonsk the que* tion. "what does
duty demand under existing circumstances?'
"The uncertain state of puhlic
opinion is practically demonstrated hy
the various platforms erected by those
who profess a desire to advance the
inteiest.s of thc Province; and, not,
unnaturally, electors might be lost in
the miize of noslrums offered as a panacea for the ills now perineal ing the
body politic. Under such circumstances, 1 prefer the counsel of the
mnltituile.ratherthan to accept the dictum of those who breed political platforms with the fecundity of rabbits. 1
am convinced thatil is lietter to have
something iu the windows liefore the
shutters aiti taken down, thus enabling
tho e whose hearts warm to the work
of developing our great mineral and
Industrial resources, to cast a reason
ing. I therefore feel that I would be
false lo the traditions of the Conservative party, and to the counsel of duty
and conscience, were I to accept a
Conservative nomination without certain reservations, enabling me should
the opportunity arise to fulfil my
promises to those who are manfully
anxious to cooperate In an effort to
redeem the Province from its present
position. I regret that a general convention was not held, a lender nominated, and a Provincial platform
adopted, instead of the opportunity
being vouchsafed those who aspired to
leadership, issuing independent appeals
and, like prospectors, blanketing the
country with scores of claims, irrespective of values. This being the case,
it is incnuihenl upon every candidate
to state bis views and abide by the
will of the majority.
"1 am quite aware thnt the present
lamentable condition of affairs furnishes an opportunity for those ambitions of legislative honors, ils well as
offering a temptation to men who
earnestly and honestly believe in party
government. 1 claim to la* inspired
by motives quite ns conscientious ; nor
can I forget political history has proved
that, when dangertIneatened the commonwealth, a union of those who  be.
unanimous nominee of the cnim-tithm
and of thanks lor the confidence thus
shown in him. The tiommntioii was
then fonunlly placed before lhe c. .invention and it was adopted by all entirely unanimous standing vote. Runs.

Mackintosh, a vote of thanks was accorded the chain, an and after singing

The Public Meeting.
Not withstanding that only four
hours'notice had heen given the hi*
tendance at, the puhlic nieeling vns
large, with nearly every senl filled iu
the spacious hall of lhe Miners' Union,
Dr. Bowes took the chair, When Mr,
Mackintosh entered Ihe hall he was
given a very hearty reception. At
the request of thc chairman several of
the Boundary delegates briefly addressed ihe meeting after the opening
speech f.-om the chair. These were
Messrs. A.W.Ross.Coluuibin; E.Miller,
Grand Forks; ,las. Kerr, Greenwood;
M. Tebo, Eholt ; and E. Jacobs, Midway. Then the chairman in appropriate lerms inlroduccd to thp meeting
Mr. Mackintosh, whn had lu wait until the cheering ami applause subsided
hefore he could commence his address.
Hon. C. H. Mackintosh's Speech.
After thankii g'he meeting for its
splendid man If esl alien ot confidence
and goodwill Mr. Mackintosh pointed
out to his hearers that he was a candidate for the suffrages of one of
the largest, if not the largest,
of the constituencies of British
Columbia. He referred lo some of his
earlier experiences in the Kootenay
and then reminded the meeting tbathe
had hrnught about the investment nf
an immense amount of capital in Ihe
mines of Wr«i Kootenay. He asked
what had caused the widespread dis*

as such cohesion is not the result of an
itss rt ion of principle, hut of a despicable selfishness, and blindness to the
public welfare. Events which have
recently transpired, establish the potent fact that puhlic spirited electors
are anxious to meet on one common
ground, and all I can do to promote
such policj will lie done,
"I helieve the electoral mandate will
sanction the latter policy ; I believe
that not only the interests of the Kootenay country, hut those appertaining
to every district in British Columbia,
depend upon a reasoning and reasonable policy. I hnld that every latitude
should be permitted those who are
senl to the Legislature, charged with
the responsibility of restoring that
prosperity, that progress, that constitutional rule, without which no self-
governing community can hope to fulfil ite destiny.
"If, sir.the gentlemen composing the
convention, men whose hearts, I am
sure, heat responsive to mine in so far
as a desire to do what is right is concerned, are of the opinion that under
such circumstances I can serve tbe
Province, 1 am willing to accept the
nomination, assuring them that I helieve the honest way in politics, the
snine as the honest way in business, is
better for the representative as well as
for those who elect him.
"That there may lie no misunderstanding 1 will hereafter briefly state
my opinions upon legislation I believe
necessary if British Columbia is to
participate in the general prosperity
at present noticeable in every other
province of the Dominion. I remain,
"Ever faithfully,
"0. H. Mackintosh."
Mr. Alex. Sharp, who had heen
chosen by the Rossland Executive to
perform this privileged duly then, in
an earnest and impassioned speech,
proposed Hon. 0. H. Mackintosh as
the Conservative candidate for election at the forthcoming election as
representative of the Rossland Riding of West Kootenay. The nomination wns briefly seconded hy Mr. Jeff
Davis, of Grand Forks. The nominations were then declared closed, and
Dr. Bowes and Mr. Pringle were
deputed to wait upon Mr. Mackintosh
and invite him to address the convention, A few minutes later the nominee entered the room and wns received
with enthusiastic applause and cheers.
As it had already been decided to hold
a puhlic. meeting in ihe evening at
which Mr. Mackintosh would speak at
length his remarks hefore the convention were a comparatively brief expression of appreciation of the honor
done him in making him the sole and
it but those of
their repj-esentatives in the Provincial
Legislature «hn were blind to their
own indiscrei ions and callous to what
iheir fellow citizens thought of thnn.
He directed attention to the present
unprecedented position, to which
constitutional histoiy furnishes no
analagous Situation since the time of
the great Duke of Wellington, in
which Ihe Province has «n administration only one member nf which
represents a constituency. In these
circumstances he had come to the conclusion ihal the best men in the Province musl be asked to assist in the
work of emancipation from such a
condition of affairs. He snid lhat he
was well aware lhat an effort is lieing
made to array the working classes
against those who join issue with the
present administration. He had
represented workingmen for ten
years in the Dominion Parliament,
nnd had always found them reasonable
and reasoning, open tn Ihe teachings
of common sense, and anxious to meet
capital half way. He had yet to
find that ihut same instinct does
not inspire the working classes of
British Columbia, He appealed to
these, as he also appealed to all interested in the progress of Ihis country,
to strengthen bis hands and the hands
of those who believe in a brond Pro*
vincial policy, thus bringing about the
formation of au administration composed of the best, practical minds in lhe
Province. He next enlarged upon
several of lbe planks in his platform,
which is published below, and then in
fervid and patriotic terms alluded lo
tbe part Canada is taking in fighting
Ihe battles of lhe Empile, lie closed
his address wilb ihe following references lo "the dear old flag,"
" Tis only a small piece of hunting,
" 'Tis only au old tattered rag;
" But   thousands  have died  for   its
"And spent Iheir best   blood  for the
"We Canadians love that flag just ns
dearly, Justus loyally and Justus sincerely as our Inei.hien at. home, and
those Englishmen, those Irishmen and
those Scotchmen who came across the
water believing they were still part
and parcel of lhe mother country have
left behind Ihem a generation willing
to dn and dare for the honor of Her
Majesty Ihe Queen, and we in the
West will ever be prepared when tho
storms and passion* of envy and hatred heal about (he motherland, to
give our dearest anil best in the cause
of human liberty, will always be prepared to hear our Gracious Queen
through the dark clouds of advorsity
into the glorious sunshine beyond."
Por several minutes after Ml. Mackintosh took hi.-, seat, the  applause and
cheering found free expression.   Afler
quiet had  been  restored  Mr.   Alex.

last week announced bis intention to
contest the election In lhe Rossland
Riding of West Kootenay, ss an Independent. Tbe Nelson "Miner" re
tentlyremarked tbat: "Tbe expe-'-
enceof Canadian Legislatures has heen
that 'Independent' candidates are men
who seek the election in order that
l hey may put themselves up for sale to
the highett bidder.
Several enquiries bave teached us in
connection with a recent appointment
as a Notary Puhlic of a resident 111
this district wbo is alleged to be
an alien. In reply we have to
stale that we are informed the
Act under which notaries are appointed does not provide for other
than British subject* being permitted
toact ill such capacity. If the allegations are true there surely must have
heen either mis-representation or concealment on the part of the applicant,
It may interest supporters of Hon
Joseph Martin's Oovernnient to know
lhat this seeming irregularity, if nol
remedied, will be used against tbem in
ihe forthcoming contest hy at least
one voter who has hitherto voted on
the Lilieral side.
The Rossland "Miner," in its report
of the remarks made hy the Midway
delegate at the puhlic meeting held at
Rossland last Tuesday evening to ratify
the nomination of Hon. 0. H. Mackintosh ss Conservative candidate for the
Rossland Riding of West Kootenay,
did uot correctly report that speaker
in quoting him as stating the amount
ex|iended on public works hj the Provincial Oovernrnent last year in the
Bou udary country as heing "something
over $1,000." What he said was, in
correction of a previous speaker who
had claimed that less than $1,1)00 had
been spent on roads nnd trails, that
certainly more than $1,000 bad heen
spent in the dislrict on these works
Of course the total spent last year
in the district on puhlic works
Was fnr in excess of this. It

knowledge this fact.
is hut
to lic
it is reported  from  Victoria that
Hon, Smith Curtis, Provincial Minister
nf Mines, stated  last Thursday  thul
unless his plans change he will seek a
seal in  Rossland  Hiding.    This accounts for his reputed promise to remove the  Mining  Recorder's  office
from  Midway to Oreenwood.    Even
should he do so we decline to believe
thut be can thus buy a majority of the
votes of electors iu Oreenwood and
vicinity, notwithstanding the negative
it will not lose him any votes and that
"Curtis is all right."  To thus try to
purchase votes by doing nn injustice
Ui the greater part of the Kettle River
Mining Division is, in our opinion, evi
deuce that Curtis is nil wrong.   The
Greenwood electors will doubtless he
pleased if tbe Mining Recorder's office
lie removed to their town, but we have
a far higher opinion of the honesty
and intelligence of most of them than
tn believe thut their votes can thus be
Wight by Mr. Curtis or any one else.
The Phoenix    Liberal  Association
last month passed the following resolution : "Whereas Phoenix Is situated
near the divide between   ihe Kettle
River and Grand Forks Mining Divisions ; and   whereas   the  most important    mines    in   both  divisions
are   at   or    near   Phoenix  ;   and
whereas the record offices of both divisions are many miles away and very
inconveniently situated, this meeting
respectfully requests His Honor the
Lieiitenant-Oovernor-in-Council to lie
pleased to appoint a Deputy Mining
Recorder for both divisions, lo be resident in   Phoenix."   This resolution
recommends a course far more just
and reasonable than the projected removal of the office of tbe Mining Recorder for lbe  Kettle River Mining
Division from Midway to Oreenwood.
Midway being about 15 miles distant
from Phoenix on   the one side and
Grand Forks a similar distance on the
other—the record offices for the respective divisions being situate in these
towns— the   course recommended in
the foregoing resolution has the merit
of containing an   eminently  sensible
proposal.   If it be a good argument
in favor of opening it record office at
Greenwood that in that town it would
bo near the mines, it is surely a better
one thut at Phoenix it would be still
nearer most  of the mines now being
developed.   In fact there is no legitimate reason that can lie assigned in
favor of a record office at Oreenwood
but what can be applied with- even
greater force to Phoenix.   If tbe Provincial Minister of Mines have in view

number of mineis and prospectors he

Candidate'* Platform
To the Electors, Rossland Riding,West
Electors:   1 am a candidate for the
Provincial Legislature at the approaching elections, and I favor the following
1, An administration composed of
those whose practical experience will
enable them to deal prompt ly and efficiently with all details connected with
the departments over which tbey preside.
2. Sanctioning no large expenditures
other than really necessary, until the
ability of Ihe Province to hear such is
cl»arly ascertained, This should not
apply to bridges, trails and roads in
newly discovered mining camps.
3- Preparation of full, authentic und
substantial financial statements of the
position of the Province, together wiih
laud and forest areas and tbeir probable values,
4, Convinced of the wisdom of assisting railroad construction as proved hy
tbe expel ience of other provinces, I
would favor a system of bonuses, surrounded by reasonable checks and
safeguards. Without feeders to main
Hues, the settlement in the interior
must naturally he retarded, the Coast
cities heingdeprived of many supply
advantages accruing from colonization,
immigration and internal improvements. At the present, juncture no
thinking man would commit hlmielf
to a snap derision in connection wilh
the subject of Government ownership
of railways. It is plausible, but I
would be unwilling to hind the Province to such a gigantic proposition involving so many complex issues, unti I
convinced that the resources of British Columbia justify such an experiment,
5. The erect ion and maintenance of a
Technical School of Mines.
0. Amendments to the mining law,
perfecting the existing system of
mine inspection, thus making it. effective and of greater puhlic advantage.

The Kamloops   "Inland Sentinel''
last week remarked in connection witb
the "good roads" question, "the real
cause of dissatisfaction in the matter
of tbe public works policy of the Pro
vince in the past has heen the entire
lack of efficient methods.  There has
been,  generally speaking,  plenty of
money spent, hut it has not heen wisely
expended under efficient supervision,"
The soundness of this contention is
exemplified  in tbe   poor   judgment
displayed in expending   the money
available lust year for making a road
up the West Fork of Kettle River and
in trying to construct a hridge over
the West Fork,   There seems to lie n,
doubt that a very good wagon road
was made for nine or ten miles, hut
more than twice that distance was left
with only a trail.   What is wanted in
these new mining districts is not so
much a short well-finished wagon road
to nowhere us a passable bush road to
one or more of the mining ramps. The
money tbat was expended in making
the short road to the   West Fork
would in tbe hands of a man experienced in bush-road work, unencum-
liered by the stereotyped methods of a
civil engineer and at liberty to employ
thoroughly good men at a living wage,
huve gone fnr towards giving Beaver
ton road connection with the Midway*
(.'mop McKinney stage mad.   And,
too, the money that has been wasted
in trying (and failing,) to put in tbe
hridge, would easily, under the direction of a competent man accustomed
to such work, have built a bridge similar to the one over the Kettle River at
Midway.   As it is a lot of money has
lieen spent, a season has heen lost, and
the West Fork mining camps are still
without roud and hridge, both of which
aro urgently needed to facilitate the
development of the promising, mineral
resources of that section of the Kettle
River Mining Division.

New Plant for the Mother Lode.
On March Oth tbe British Columbia
Copper Co. signed at its head oflice
New York, a contract to purchase from
the Jas, Cooper Manufacturing Co.)
Ltd., of Montreal, Que., the largest
compressor, boiler and drilling plant
yet ordered for the Boundary country.
The further statement has been made
that there is none larger now in oper
atlon in Canad i, but whether this be
true or not there is no doubt that the
directors of the British Columbia Cop.
per Co. have, in ordering this additional plant after nearly four years'
systematic prospecting of their Mother
Lode property, given practical proof
of their conviction that the company
owns a mine that is full of promise for
permanent and profitable operation,
lt is nearly two years since the com
pany purchased from the Jas. Cooper
Manufacturing Co. the following plant
and equipment; Two 00-horse power
boilers, with feed water heater, pumps,
etc.,one It)drill Ingersoll Sergeant air
compressor, with complement of machine drills, hose, etc., station and
sinking pumps, and pump for water
supply, an Edison electric light plant,
a Lidgerwood hoisting engine, 90-incb
drum, a half mile or more of pipes, and
all requisite cars, buckets, rails, machine and hand tools, etc, Uti-r two
auxiliary hoists were obtained from
the Jenckes Machine Co., and quite
recently a cage, supplied by the Wm,
Hamilton Manufacturing Co., was re
calved wit h thef ore going plant the mine
hus been opened up liy a two-compartment vertical shaft sunk to a depth of
ifio feet and by ahout. 2,000 feet of nn
derground work in drifts, cross-cuts,
stations, winzes and upraise. Adding
the cross-cutting, etc., done prior to
the piuchaseof the power plant, the
underground wnrk done totals about
2,710 feet.
With this much work to its credit
and with results in ore bodies exposed
that appear to amply warrant the
preparation for operations on a much
larger scale, the following Ingersoll-
Sergeant compress, ,r plant,etc.has heen
ordered : A cross compound Corliss
condensing air compressor, wilh compounded air end and receiver inter-
rniiler.lhe high and low pressure steam
cylinders to he 22-inch and 40-inch diameter respectively, the air cylinders
to be of the piston inlet type, high and
low pressure, 19} inch and 32} inch
respectively and 48 inch stroke, the
machine to have a capacity of 80 to 40
drills,and to weigh 108,000 lbs; two
06x10 horizontal return tubular boilers,
each 100-howe power for 125 lbs, working pressure, and to have horizontal
smoke connection and nne stack; a
64x12 air receiver; a feed water heater
of sufficient capacity for 830 horse
power boilers ; ten E 21 drills ; two
double-screw and ten single-screw
columns with arm and clamp; two iron
safely platform cages with safety device and shield roof; Iwo six-foot
sheave wheels ; 1,600 feet of li inch
wire rope, and six steel ore cars with
McCaskell wheels and axles, Delivery
of this plant is contracted to he made
within three months. It may he here
remarked that the compressor is lo be
fitted with every device known to
mechanical engineering for the economical production of power.
A new hoist is also to lie obtained of
a capacity sufficient to work the mine
down to a depth of 1,600 feet.    This
has not yet heen ordered, hut will he
shortly.   Meanwhile a site for it north
of the shaft is being blasted out so that
there need be nn delay in putting it
in position  after it  shall have lieen
received.   The site chosen for the new
compressor plant is on Mother Lode
Creek about 160 feet helow the level of
that on which the machinery now in
use stands.   Economic considerations
have influenced the   choice of this
lower site, the adoption of which will
render it unnecessary to so enlarge the
main shaft dnwn to the 200-foot level
as to provide roomfornlhirdcompartment in which to place compressed air
and steam pipes.    As both existing
compartments will ere long he required
for the two cages that are to lie installed it has heen decided to run a
tunnel from tho present 200 foot level
of the mine out to the oreek, a distance
of about SOO feet.   Across-cut hnd already been driven 100 feet towards the
creek, and this is now being extended
so as to serve this purpose.
