The Lardeau District
Experiencing a Time
of Growth and General Prosperity.
"The Lardeau is positively the liveliest mining distriot in British Columbia," Btiid a visitor from the coast who
has just completed a tour of the province.
"Not only becauso everybody who
knows is saying so, but because I have
seen them all during the past two
months, and am in a position to judge.
You have more gold in sight on undeveloped properties; you have the highest grade silver-lead ores; you havo Increasing gold values with dopth. There
is more good, sound, substantial development by men who understand their
business, going on than upy non-railway camp I know of. When you -see
mountain sides suddenly transformed
into lu.es of tyidusb-f, can hear steam'
whistles da every' slope, and watch
men going to and from work, you can

converted into aerial tramway supports. In Ferguson a modern waterworks system and an up-to-date electric llghting','plant, five busy hotels,
two freighting concerns, three stores,
blacksmith shops, mining companies

THB CAMPAIGN
IN FULL SWING
First Shots Fired for Kaslo Riding in Eagle Hall,
Ferguson, on Saturday JSTiglit---1\leeting Called
by Hon. R. F. Green, Minister of Mines.���
All the Candidates Were Present.
The busy residents of tho golden Lardeau were disturbed In their active
mining operations on Wodnesday of
last week by the somewhat unexpected
arrival in Ferguson of Hon. R. P.
Green, minister of mines, and Liberal-
Conservative nominee for tbis riding.
Mr. Green was received bv leading
supporters and members of the local
organization, who accompanied him to
the mines of the camp.
Following closely on the minister's
trail came John L. Retallack, tho Liberal nominee, and Ferguson's local aspirant for M. P. P. in tho Victoria
house. S. Shannon, the Socialist nom-
nee, was on band to meet his opponents.
Each candidate bad lieutenants from
the outside to support them.
For the Hon. Minister thero wero
C. W. McAnn and A. Carney of Kaslo. For Mr. Retallack there were John
KJasn of Kue)*>, and Dunoan Ro.vtho
provincial Liberal organizer of Greenwood. Mr, Shaunon was supported by
Chas. O'Brien, organizer for the Western Federation of Labor, and A. J.
Gordon of Ferguson.
The Conservatives called a public
meeting for Saturday night, when tbe
fuse was lighted and tbe campaign ln
this riding was formally opened.
Eagle hall never before hnd so many
people within its walls. The seats
wero filled early, the ladies, of whom
there was a good reproaentation,
sitting at the front. Later all the
available standing room was filled by
men who went to hear the candidates
and to hear tho issues of the campaign
discussed.
Mr. John Atkinson, a miner, occupied the chair, nnd aftor announcing
tbo order of the speaking and dellver-
ering a few introductory remarks he
called on
HON. R. F. GREEN,
Minister of Mines, to speak first,
Mr. Green opened his remarks by introducing himself, this being bis first
speech in Ferguson, and bis first in the
constituency as lt is now constituted.
Ho said he came to British Columbia
in 1805 and was first elected to the B,
C. parliament in 1808, he having, however, been Identified with provincial
politics much oarlior than 1808. The
policy of the present government, of
which he has the honor to bo a mem
ber, has been beforo the electorate for
somo months, no one having any excuse
to be Ignorant of the principles advocated, for tho platform has been published in the newspapers of tho province for nearly three months and it is
tho same platform that was adopted nt
Revelstoko four years ago. "So," said
Mr. Green, "our platform and our policy being so familiar to you, I need not
dwell on that, but push on."
The Honorable gentleman explained
why tbe campaign bad been brought on
a month earlier than the date' first set.
In tho first place, he und hie* colleagues
were holding tho reins of tho govern
ment on privilege, tho lieutenant-governor, a pronounced Liberal, having
called them to govern the country until such time as ft pronouncement by
the people might* bo had at the polls.
This, they felt, should take place with
as little delay as possible. In the second place, tbo finances of the country
havo boen found to be in sueh an un-
itlsfactory condition that theallali'B
of tlio country could bo carried on but
very imperfectly and the government
wished to amend tho fiscal policy to enable them to meet present conditions
and to govern the country in a proper
manner. On being called on to form a
government Premier McBri'.io promised that the election would be brought
on aB soon as practicable, and in changing tbe date his honored leader had
the best Interests of tho country at
heart, wishing to not prolong the suspense any longer than was necessary.
Tho voters lists are now ready and
thoro are practically no appeals to delay matters, therefore tljero was -ho
reason why tbe election should be delayed. "Our great aim In the immediate futuro is to introduce legislation
uaat will r..tor�� Jnr*fid**IicO ill the
financial and political affairs of tho
provinco."
Mr. Green spoke about 30 minutes,
touching most of tho questions affecting the province, nnd received hearty
applauso whon he took his seat.
'JOHN L. RETALLACK . '.
Was next called on, being alotted 30
minutes. He opened his speech by
drawing attention to his labors at Ottawa as a member of tho delegation to
seek assistance from the Dominion government for the lead miners o( British
Columbia. He said no moro credit
was due him than to tho other members of the delegation, but they no
oompllshed their purpose and got a
bounty which will greatly help the silver-lead miners.
He devoted a great deal of his time
to criticising the personnel of tho McBride government, the minister of
mines coming in for it great share of it,
He twitted Mr. Green on not giving an
account of his stewardship and not
outlining their policy. Uo accused
Mr. Green and his colleagues In the
government of being parties with
former governments which so grossly
misgoverned tho provinco and have
given awtiy so much of tho country to
the corporations.
Mr. Rotallacb said he had been
charged with employing a Chinaman
at a mino of which ho was manager at
Kaslo. Ho explained that this was
quite true, but ho did it with regret,
being unable to keep a white cook,
s. SHANNON.
Mr. Shannon, tbe Labor-Socialist
candidato, was given a half hour to
present his views on tho political situation. In'hid Introduction he said tho
present occasion was about his first at*
tempt on the political platform. Ho
considered theso contests did good to
tho community In nn educational way.
He could romomber when the polltU'al
questions ot the country wore never
discussed o::eept during a campaign.
The workingmen are reading more today and thoy are demanding changes
and thoy look to the Socialist movement to bring redress.
He was uhiusod and surprised at Hon.
Mr. Green's remarks whero they bore
on Socialism, but he hoped to convince
even Mr, Green before the election was
over that the Socialists were right, and
would have to bo reckoned with. He
wished Mr. O'Brien might have been
heard so that some of tho knotty questions that appeared not to be understood might bo explained. He referred
to the problem of production, and explained at some length what his party
desired to obtain. The problem of distribution was the burning question and
tho Socialists would quickly solve it
were tbey given a chance in a way that
would benefit tho working classes.
Socialists did not want government
ownership of public utilities. Government ownership would bo no relief under the present system of government,
but relief would only come when wo
got collective ownership.,
Mr. Shannon closed bis address by
quoting Tcnny.-iofi'-'well known poem,
"Ring Out Wild Lolls," amid much,
cheering from his friends.
OTA Bit  SPh.AkER.-l.
Mr. Chas. W. McAnn of Kaslo, was
tho next speaker. Ho supported Hon.
Mr. preen and tho Conservative government. His sheoch showed a knowl-
edgo ol practical politics and was punctured with considerable humor, and
hie remarks wero received with a great
deal of applause.
Mr. John Keen was next called but
ho declined to speak until later, so Mr.
A. Carney delivered his speech. He
spoko as a life-long Liberal but was not
identified with the Liberals ot this
province. He did not beliovo in the
new liberalism. It thoro was a straight
labor candidate in tho Mold ho would
support him, but as things are he was
supporting Hon. Mr. Green. Tho
speaker indulged ln considerable ridicule of tho Socialist and Liberal candidates.
Tho next speaker was Mr. A. J. Cordon, who said that this was the lirst
time he had supported any other than
tho Liberal party in a campaign, but
ho had changed his views, for he bu-
lioved neither of the old parties tried
to do the right* thing far tbe working
classes. Ho devoted most of his timo
to a criticism of tho Conservative
party and also the Liberals, and incoti-
oluslon he euloglaed tho Socialist parly
and explained iheir principles and
aims,
Mr, John Keen, tho ex-Consorvatlvo
of Kaslo, was tlio noxt speaker. He
hud lots of abuse to heap ou the beads
of his old co-workers, and especially
Mr. Green, who seems to havo becomo
most obnoxious to Ml'. Keen. What
caused tho seeming bitter feeling between these two gentlemen was not explained clearly, but It was mooted that
jealousy was ut tho root, of It. Mr.
Keen admitted writing certain articles
for tho Kaslo-Kontenaian, which ho at
first denied to Mr. MoA.cn. Ho also
gave the Socialists a drubbing, and
concluded by advising his listeners to
cast thoir votes for tho Liberal candidate. _
Hon. Mr. Green roso about 11:30 p.
m. to roplv and bring to a close the
most lengthy political meeting ever
held In Ferguson. Ho touched o,u most
of tho quostions that had been brought
up and scored some good points on tho
Mongolian question, aud ho resumed
his seat amid much cheering. His
speech was n good one and seemed to
be well received by the audience.
The meeting closed with cheers for
Hon. Mr. Green and a vote of thanks
to the chairman.
Tho meeting was a good one In every
way and the strangers from the outside
were loud Ih their praises of the good
order maintained.

THE DATE CHANGED.
Thcgovernment lias seen fit to
bring on the provincial elections a
month earlier than the date first announced by proclamation. Some of
ths Liberal papers have taken the
government to task for this unusual
action, but the Conservatives maintain that it was not done with a
view to gaining any advantage, but
rather to lessen the evil effects that
are always caused to trade and
commerce by a pending election,
and especially a long drawn out
campaign where the issue is uncertain.
In a campaign like the present
one, where there are three or more
distinct parties in thc field the issue
is still more uncertain for the comparatively new party, Socialist, has
to be reckoned with. After all,
there is very little difference in the
platforms and aims of the old parties, but if the Socialists should secure a number of seats in the new
house a quite different state of
affairs would prevail.
i, Premier McBride promised that
he would bring on the elections as
soon as practicable, but entering
Upon the campaign which is the
first one. in, B, C. to be conducted
on party flues, with new lists to be
prepared and also the confusion in
consequence of thc change in the
boundaries of the electoral districts,
made it seem that the end of October was not '00 ,ar c**stant 'or P0""
iflg day. However, the preliminary
wqrk was finished sooner than was
expected, and the financial position
of the province was bad, so four
Weeks were chopped off. We cannot seewhere the change will affect
one party more than another, and
it will be conceded by all that the
shorter campaign will prove better
for the country.
What has helped Nelson to a large
extent was the rapid development in
the Lardeau district,.for not only do
most of the supplies come from Nelson, but the passenger traffic has
been heavy and tfctM people must
stop over in tbe town and numbers
of them purchased supplies and
necessaries. Scarcely could the
writer meet any one in converse
but questions were asked concerning the wonderfully' rich Lardeau and its phenomenal gold
bearing leads. Knowing the reports that were published to be cor*
rect, we were in a position to assure
the parties of their truthfulness.
We firmly believe there will be a
very large immigration to the Lardeau next season.
Nelson's fair, the great interior
exhibition ot the Kootenays, will be
held on the 34th and 35th of this
month. The provincial government
have given a special grant to help
make it the splendid success that it
deserves. It is the intention of the
directors to make it an annual occurrence, such as the provincial fair
at New Westminster. Ot course
the Nelson fair will show the mineral resources of the province to a
greater extent than anything else,
but an effort is being made to have
a good exhibition of the fine arts,
agriculture, fruits, etc. A large
number of attractions have been secured also, and the management
hope to make it such a success that
it will adveriise itself for worth.

Out Wild Bells," brought forth loud
applause.

EDITOEIAL NOTES.
The writar spent last week visiting Nelson and Southern British
Columbia and noticed much improvement in all lines of business,
notwithstanding that the provincial
election campaign was at white heat
and business was being more or less
neglected. In the boundary country
the big mines and smellers are all
activity and the only drawback is a
scarcity of men, a condition that
has not been known for. three years
or more. A year ago there were
many vacant houses in the towns
aloug, the Southern border, but now
one can hardly find a vacant house,
and there is a feeling of prosperity
���everywhere. In Nelson, the distributing centre of the Kootenays,
the changed condition is noticeable
in every business house and hotel.
ership of railways in so far as tlie circumstances of thc province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should

with tho option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in the development of the agricultural resources of the

... That toencouragi the mining industry,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should be

���1. That the government ownership of telephone systems should be brought'about a.s a

7. That the legislature and government of
the province should persevere iu the efforts to

and lead products imported' into Canada, and
that the Conservative members of the Domln*-

Wiped Out by Disease.
Winnipeg, Sept, 8.���Steamboat Inspector Phillips returned on September Sth from an ollieial trip to all
points on the Mackenzie river and tributaries where steamboats are in com
mission, going as far north as the Heels
river, 100 miles within the Arctic Cir*
ele, He states that during the past
years tbe Eskimo tribes of tho Mackenzie Bay region have suffered from
an epidemic of measles, the deaths
from the disease having decimated
some bunds to such an extent that
there are Very few lcft. At Fort Resolution, on the Peel river, whore usually
a large number of Eskimos meet the
Hudson Bav boats, thore was not one
this year, The disease was contracted
by these people through a visit to Dawson City, and as they had absolutely no
care, tbe disease spread, and they left
the dead all along the trail on tbe way
home. Among one tribe at the north
end of Great Slave lake, about eighty
of these poor people died from this disease.
Mr. Phillips' trip occupied three and
a half months, and the distance traveled exceeded 8,000 miles.
