Premier   McBride may win
in the approaching provincial
contest,  but  it  is  more than
likely that   the Tories, like a
millstone round his neck, will
east him  deep  in the sea of
political defeat.   A great many
Conservatives or more properly
Liberal Conservatives have,announced    their    intention ■ of
throwing in their lot with the
Liberal or Reform party.   Tlj<we
men were followers of Sir John
A. Macdonald in their former
homes in the Eastern provinces,
and in British Columbia.   They
believed in the National Policy,
and still   believe in   it, as do
many Liberals, who, formerly
Conservatives,   left   the party
when, the conservatives under
Sir Charles Tupper proposed to
coerce Manitoba when theschool
question came up.   Many Liberal   Conservatives   recognize
the  fact   that   the   National
policy is not at stake; that it
has practically been adopted by
the Liberal party at Ottawa;
that the Liberal party combines
the best   principles that have
boen advocated by both parties
sinceConfederation ;und that it
is desirable   from every  point
of view to bo in touch with the
authorities at   Ottawa rather
than antagonize them.   Mr. McBride   will,    almost   without
exception,    have   the  sfapport
of the Tory clique, at Victoria
and elsewhere.   For this reason
if he is successful at the polls,
he is bound to reward them for
their  support;  he cannot  go
back .on his  Tory supporters.
It is well known that the Tory
element are in control throughout the province, and it is only
reasonable to suppose that they
will retain control, if the McBride government be sustained.
There will be no change; the
same old gang, whoso motto is
"whatever is, is right" will hold
most of the lucrative position's*
and conduct affairs in the same
old antiquated way.   One thing
is certain,  they will make a
hard fight,  us did  their predecessors in the struggle for responsible   government,   which
took place in the other provinces
many years ago, but which has
never heen established, except
in name, in British Columbia.

Walter McNames was a bright
pleasant boy, being only 19
years of age at the time of his
doath. Although he had only
been a resident of Midway for
less (liim two years,his pleasant
manner had gained him many
friends, no one having anything
but a good word to say of
Walter, and his sudden death
was keenly felt by all. No lietter evidence of the esteem in
whicli he was held by the peo
pie hore could bo given than the
large attendance at the funeral,
whicli was by far the most larg-
ly attended of any every held
in Midway, His father, mother
two brothers and six sisters all
reside in Mid way, and much sympathy is expressed for theiu in
their sad bereavement

Another claim attracting attention is the Hamilton, about
a mile from Greenwood, on the
old Anaconda-Grand Forks wagon road. It has been held for
some years by W. J. Harris, of
Spokane, formerly in the Le
Roi mine at Rossland, who
crown granted it about five
years ago and thereafter allowed it to remain unworked until recently, when he put on a
couple of men to open it up.
It is stated that a good vein of
quartz has been found and that
thc prospects are good for it to
