He Broke the Record for Vancouver Oity Majorities.  The Vote
Was Large.
The Result Shows the People are
Tired of Trifling and Mean
Business.
Hon. Charles Wilson was elected on
tbe 10th inst. in Vancouver, and this is
what the ,; '-'���evince" of the following
day had to say of the result:
Capt. J. Dull Stuart, Liberal candidate in tbo by-election held yosterday
in Vancouver city, went dotvn to defeat
bofore Hon. Charles Wilson, Attorney-
General.
The majority given Hon. Mr. Wilson
was 954. Such a surplus of security
oven the most ardent Conservative did
not count upon, although from 300 to
500 majority was expected and in many
Instances conceded Oy the Liberals who
had given the matter consideration un-
trammeled by partisan hopes.
Tho vote, as officially recorded by returning officer H. B. Ellis, was; Wilson,
2,841; Stuart, 1,887; majority of Wilson
954.
Although the election was a quiet
one and excited but littlo enthusiasm,
tbe general iutorest is evident from the
total voto, unusually large. Tho majority of tho votes polled yesterday
were placed in the ballot box by men
who believed tbey had a duty to perform. They wished to do what they
considered thoir duty, aud they did it
without demonstration.
Not counting spoiled ballots, 4,728
people voted yesterday. At the recent
general election In Vancouver the total
vote polled was 5,700.
Tho polling of votes was vory heavy
yesterduy between tho hours of (i p.m.
and 7.30 p.m. At nearly evory hour of
the day during whicli the polls wore
open thoro was a steady stream of voters to the City Hall.
There was a lack of intorest among
the bettiug fraternity as to the result.
There were fow If any largo bets made,
but the usual fairly good crop of small
risks were in evidence, the result being
predicted by the odds offered.
At the polling station, Mr. Joseph
Martin and Mr. G. F. Cano woro in
charge of the scrutineers for, Mr. Stuart, Mr. Bowser and Mr. W. E. Burns
looking after 'the Conservative workers.
When tlie polls were closed at 7:30 p.m.
and tho count began, it soon booamo
evident that Mr. Wilson would, lead
from tho start.
Correspondence.
The Editor, Lardeau Eagle. Ferguson, B.C.
Dear Sir,���So little is definitely
known at tln_ presont day as to the
groat minoral wealth of thB'Lui-doau
mining division extending from tbe
wonderfully rich camps of Camborne
and Ferguson and south east to Poplar
creek and Duncan Lake, that I feel jus-
tilled attempting In a later later to give
somo idea of the present conditions describing thu wealth which is In process
of development, and that whieh is
known to exist, only awaiting capital
and Intelligence, its prospective valuo
based on tho proofs which are so surely
conclusive us to bo admitted:
Having just returned from the fiorth.
I have only timo to enter a protest
against the thoughtless suspicion cast
by the provincial mineralogist reflecting very seriously upon the operations
of a gentleman whom all mining mon
in the Kootenays know and respect, and
whose name wo all know and need not
mention '
The cnast press accounts of Fleet
Robertson's opinions, and those also of
the correspondent of that excellent
journal Tho Victoria Mining Record
are not genuine contributions, their
worth being easily tested, (or it was es
sential for both thesegeutlomentohave
honestly faced [be task of making known
the new eldorado, and that is exactly
what they have not done, for does any
reasonable man suppose for a moment
that tbe extensive mineral belt of the
Lardeau, practically unknown even to
the best informed authority in the coun
try, can be lightly passed over in a
couple of hours and be criticized. It is
common knowledge that every mining
engineer usually gives at least two days
to make an examination of one claim to
do it properly, but here are two men,
the ono ostensibly for the purpose of
gaining further notoriety for his ultra-
conservatism regarding Kootenay pro-'
positions, which attitude is just now
fashionable at the coast, the other, possibly because the country boing overrun with paper agents promising the
immediate advent of a Pierpont if only
funds be furnished for a craftily worded
write-up, found no support, retiring disgusted, and the narrow logic of his
argument disposed him to dampen public enthusiasm, just because thero happened to bo a dearth of the coined article and the would-be advertiser preferred to be less gullible than formerly,
but was willing to be shown how a
stock advertisement would pay.
These parties saw only two properties, spending a few minutes at each,
that time for the most part taken up in
asking questions. Then satisfied that
thoy had seen the whole of the lower
Lardeau In two hours, they fancied they
could class themselves as authorities, and both being in tho public eye, their opinions wore received
favorably, and unfortunately so, for the
country needed a powerful stimulant
which was acting moderately, not wildly, to excite the energetic class to new
exertions, and was loosening the tiresome prejudices of outsido capital to
enter, freeing tho long struggling pa*
tient prospector from his burdens carried for a lifetime, who, pioneering impassable territory and creating tlio nation's prosperity, went unrewarded, and
saw his recent hopes immediately stultified by tbe criticism of flannelcd oafs,
Now booming founded on lies causes
disaster, but booming the truth is nbsC-
lutely necessary in British Columbia
today. Tho simple truth is not enough.
It cannot attract and tbe reason is obvious, requiring no explanation, therefore tlie methods employed bv some of
tbe Poplar Creek enthusiasts woro legitimate, because undoubtedly they
have tlie goods there, and had any other
policy boon adopted not a cent of outside money would have been invested.
And what does Fleet Uobertson say to
tho fact tbat scven-eigths of thc money
raised for Poplar Creek promotions
this summer came from those who had
actually seen with their own eyes what
they woro investing in? Is thoro a
similar record lu B.C. annals? It was
to mu remarkable, and I can name no
precedent, Unfortunately 1 hayo not
tho slightest intorest In tho lower Lar-
clenu country other than being the possessor of some samplos, one of which
from tho Swede group going $118,000
to tho ton, but having boon nearly all
over tho northwest and in various mining districts in tbo world, I will say
tbat as a freo gold belt tho Lardeau Is
pre-eminent, and any other opinion Is
prejudiced.
. What did Floot Uobertson goto Poplar Creek for'? His short useless visit
is ovideuced when ho declares, proving
his incapacity to perform his duties properly, that "he was Informed" lhat
samples (rom the ImportantLudlty Jack
property Assayed somuch. Was it too
much of an eilori. tocarry away a foiv
pieces o! rock, admitting that gold
weighs heavy, but not possessing the
gravity of load, which does not incommode him seemingly? Many other
(acts might be cited, each sufficiently
Important to demand tbe dismissal of
figure heads, and in their places hustlers and progressionists, and I am glad
to see that very little is necessary to in-
ita the Kootenlan spirit to enfofeo the
demand (or a fitting representative.
Sincerely yours,

Seven Families Moved Into Town
In the Past Fortnight.   Our
Growing Time.
Every  House   in Town   Occupied
and the Place is Larger than
ever beforo.
It has always been felt that tho town
of Ferguson has suffered for the want
of moro families. Tho town was made
up of single men fot the most part, but.
tho past two years havo wrought a
great chango in tiiis respect, however
the past fortnight has been the greatest
timo of growth and the quickest that
has beon known here. This growth represents a total of no less than seven
families, being an increase of about 21
persons, and every house in town is occupied. It therefore looks well for the
winter, and things should be lively in
consequonce as compared with previous
winters. Tho recent Influx was brought,
about by reasoji, in most instances, of
the Nettie L. mino closing down. The
closedown was an unfortunate circumstance to tlio parties who have moved
down, but it is au ill wind that brings
nobody good. Tho following arc the
heads of families to whom we refor: J,
B. Manross, who has built a comfortable cottago on his Main street lots,
Thos. Baldwin, Allan Chisholm, Chas.
Petorson, Chas. Olson, David Carlquist
and Oscar Jaoobson;

Tho business aod mining m3n of
j Poplar to tho number of 40 held a meeting on the evening of tho 10th inst.., to
[organize a trades committeo, and incidental!,' to pass a resolution memorial*
5 I/.ing the Canadian Pacific Railway to
maintain open communication on tlie
Lardo-Gorrard branch during the
winter.
The tunnel on tho Lucky Jack Is now
in about 1(15 foet, and tho values are
stiil equal to that found at tho surface,
and perhaps a little better. Work is
also being rushed vory rapidly on thc
other property of tlie Great Northern
Mines, the Swede Group, and tbe work
gives excellent results.
Ontario Minerals.
The annual report of the bureau of
mines for Ontario for 1902has just been
printed. It shows that the total valuo
of mineral production in tho provinco
for tho year was $0,257,000. This compares with $5,017,000 the previous year
nnd with constantly diminishing
amounts annually. Five years ago tho
corresponding total was only $1,0811,000.
Gold showccflts high point In 1899, with
a total of $425,('00, and last year was
down to $30(1,000. Chief among tho
minoral products of tho provinco is
nickel, coppor following. Of tlio former lust year's product was $3,210,000,
and of tho latter, $080,000. Metallic
mineral products of the province include nickel, copper, gold, silver, zinc
aud molybdenite, in the order named.
The province produced In the year
$7,134,000 in non-metallic minerals,
chiof of which was brick; second, petroleum; third, building stone. This
was also a great increase, and is to be
compared with but $5,547,000 live years
ago. The Lake of the Woods district,
In fact all that region north of Minnesota, whore gold bas been mined, was
very dull in tho year, and but half a
doaon mines wero active, where there
were 25 three years ago. Twelve mines
are still producing gold, and some of
them at a vory good profit. Among the
very few minos In the world operated
for silver alone was that ot the Consolidated Mines company, of Port Arthur,
which turned out $00,000 in the year,���

In Alexander Hall on Monday night.
Tho show was of a better class than
that which was given in Ferguson four
months since, and some of the looal hits
brought out during the evening were
quito amusing. Many thought, how-
over, that the singing, and some of the
localisms savored too much of
"vinogar" to havo produced tho best
effect, und several persons looked vory
sour as thoy sat through the ordeal.

Tho Deficit of B. O.
The following figures show the exact
position of linances in tho provinco of
Hritish Columbia, as prepared and submitted to the press by finance minister
Hon. R. G. Tatlow, Thc government
will introduce a bili to the legislature
to provide for raising suliicient money
on debentures to covor tho deficit, and
to put tho provincial treasury in a position to meet current oxpensos :
Tho rovenuo to the end of Juno 30,
was $2,044,030; tlio expenditure, Inclu
ding sinking fund and redemption of
debentures, $1,1122,08(1. Besides this,
payment of $50,150 was mado on tho
Fraser river bridge, tho provincial
government standing half the expense.
There was also tho notation and discount of $372,000, and Other items which
bring tho grand total expenditure uptp
,3..5;V..450, makingadollcit of$1,510,820.
Tliis does not include railway subsidies
of $55,000, making a total deficit for the
year ending Juno 30, just beforo the
government took office, of $1,505,820.
Lardeau Wage Claims.
A dospntoh from Ottawa dated 21st
November says that Leonard Shannon,
accountant of tho railway department,
wili prooeed to British Columbia forthwith to investigate claims for wages
made by persons employed on the railway from Duncan Lako toward the Arrow lakes. When W. A. Galliher M.P.
was In the Lardeau in September be
promised to usehis bost powers to have
those claims settled, and when the.
house prorogued be romatned at Ottawa for this purposo. It is satisfactory
to learn that Uie efforts bave brought
results.

POPLAR CREEK.
The O.P.E. Will Endeavor to Keep
Train Running Thus Far
During Winter.
If Profitable, They May Run Boat
On Trout Lake.   That is
Improbable.
Superintendent F. F. Uusteed of the
C. P. U. company at Nelson was interviewed early in tho week by a Daily
News reporter, in regard to tho open
question whether the branch from Lardo to Gerrard would be maintained during tho winter. Mr. Busleed'said he
was unable to givo a decided answer,
but ho represented tho cumpany wero
seriously oonsiderins the question, and
it was his opinion that trains would bo
kept running all winter as far as Poplar. At the sainG time this depended
entirely upon the question of traffic and
expense of maintenance, fears having;
been entertained that the deep snow
that usually falls in the district would
necessitate heavy expense in keeping
tho road open. But lie said he would
recomcieiid that a service be maintain-
as far as Poplar, anyway. Ho wont ou
to say as reported in the "News" as follows : " It is entirely a question ot business. We aro anxious to do business
as the public to yot accommodation,
but wo cannot he expected to keep tho
branch open at too yreat a loss. Up \o
the present time, it is true, tho traflic
has been heavy, but that is due to tho
largo importation of wintor sup.
plies, and thoro will probably bo a
heavy falling oil shortly."
in answer to a qucstior, Mr. Bustced
said that if the present traflic continued, the lino would certainly be kept
open whether Trout Lake froze or not.
" We are not in a position,"' ho went
on, "to break the ice on Trout Lako
this winter. The little steamer Victoria now there would be a pour appliance
for that purpose, and without the
through trallie the Poplar and Gerr-_:r_!
business would havo to be of consider
able extent to make the line profitable
during the winter. The prospects are
that there will bo a great deal of snow
in that country; already we have had
requests for snow plows and flanges,
and it will undoubtedly be a most costly affair to keep the trains running."
Smith Curtis Kee,,son able.
Mr. Smith Curtis, ex al.P-.P-, is visiting tho coast on business connected
with mining properties in which ho is
interested, says the Colonist of the __2ihI
inst.
While not desiring to discuss political matters at tho presont time. Mr.
Curtis said he thought ll w;_s tho duty
of tho legislature to devise ways and
means immediately for solving existing
fiscal troubles, and that members on
both sides should act in this matter in
a patriotic way, rather than iu a spirit
of partisanship. "This is a question,"
said Mr. Curtis, "which will brook no
delay without causing very yreat loss
to all financial interests in the province,
if tho provinco should be forced into a
semi-bankrupt stato, it must militate
against Investment of outside capital
ists, who would naturally suppose that
tho province was either badly managed
or lacked tho natural resources to justify investment."

FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 27, 1903.
THE BYE-ELECTION.
Hon.   Charles Wilson,   Attorney
General, had a walk over in the bye
election   at   Vancouver.      He   in
creased his big majority obtained in
the general election by over 400, al
though his opponent, Captain  Duff
Stewart is a most popular young
Vancouver business man, and the
heaviest ammunition in the Liberal
ranks was used in the effort to defeat Mr. Wilson.
The grand result goes to prove
two things *. first, that Vancouver,
which has always been considered a
Liberal stronghold up to the gener
al election, believes the McBride
government is able and disposed to
give the affairs of the province honest and business-like management.
Then again it proves the weakness
of the Liberals as a party in this
province. Their foremost men from
all over the country, including their
admired leader, lent their voices in
denunciation ot the Conservative
party and the personnel of the Government, and yet the former Liberal
voters of the terminal city refused to
turn from their conversion that was
shown on October second. The doctrine preached in Vancouver by the
Liberal speakers was : defeat Wilson, embarrass the eovernment,
then we shall be called upon to form
a government. No lucid reasoning
was presented to show why the
McBride crowd should be turned
out, neither was it shown that they,
the opposition, were in a better position or were more capable to govern ; but boiled do.vn, it amounted
to pure selfishness, showing utter
disregard as to the welfare of the
country.
The Liberals, however, excepting
a few selfish individuals who do not
care a rap for the country they live
in except to iuilher (heir personal
ends, are a unit with ihe Conserve
live party in wishing above ull things
to see a government at Victoria
that is strictly honest, then having
a sincere purpose to lift the
.fair province of British Columbia
from the unenviable position into
which it has fallen through gross
mis-mariagement,un\vise legislation,
and perhaps through unfaithfulness
on the part of former assemblies.
WILL EESTORB CREDIT.
There can be but one reason why
the credit of this province is shaken,
and that is on account of the succession ot unstable governments that
have had control of the country's
affairs. It is not that the province
is in debt for any great amount, nor
are the resources ol the country exhausted. "No province in the Dominion has as great resources yet untouched   as   B.  C :  no   province
should have better credit than this,
yet the banks have refused to advance any more money until such
time, as they point out clearly, the
province is shown to be capable of
managing its financial affairs in a
business-like manner, and the gov*
ernment ot the time shows stability
and capability. If instead of indul*
ging in continuous strife to get control of the treasury benches, as was
the case under tbe old coalition condition, the members of the present
house should lend their united 'Support to securing a strong workable
administration, the country would
very soon be on a sound footing,
and the financial position would be
first class.
It is, however, very satisfactory
to notice that a disposition is shown
throughout the country by the press
and our public men to pull together
and give the government which
holds power needful assistance and
encouragement. So we hope to see
the session that is approaching,
fruitful of wise legislation, and in
consequence we expect to see the
country make great advancement in

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Weather prophets declare that
the winter on which we have entered
is to be a mild one, and that the
snowfall will be light. How we do
wish the Ferguson weather clerk
had power to fix things, to suit ourselves. Then we would order roses
to bloom in January out of doors,
and some of us would pick raspberries all the year round. However, there are no complaints heard
ot the weather for the past ten days.
Good sleighing, with six or eight inches of snow and just cool enough
for comfort, consequently everybody
is cheertul except Dad Dube, who
is still struggling with his water
pipe problems.
Joe Martin was the chief bulwark
of support tor Captain Duff Stewart
in the recent bye-election in Vancouver. Mr. Martin stumped and
he worked, and altogether we believe he made a vigorous effort to
secure Captain Stewart's election,'
yet Hon. Charles Wilson was re*
elected by an  increased  majority
