"1 sleep in the second .story ol the
Kink Block,. I wus awakened, about
2 o'clock on Ki-iduy morning by u
loud explosion, which shook the
building, and which seemed to come
Irom below in the store. I Immediately suspected thut the sule ill tlie

once dressed mysell, und rushed
down stairs, und looked through tlie
windows Into the store. Mr. Lorne
Langln wus passing, und I unlocked,
und opened the door. A strong,
smell of powder und smoke lollowcd
the opening of the door. Mr. Langln, then found Oonstablo McLean,
und together wc entered the store,
und found thut the sale hud been
blown open, the richt hand door wus
partially blown from its blnnes, und
tlie lower front ol the door from the
base. The bundle wus blown fifteen
feet uwuy striking und indenting tlie
wull, tbe combination wus torn Irom
its socket, und the walls spotted
with soup which was used to nil the
crevice around the door. The burg.
Ims must hnve heard Mr. Laidlaw

There is absolutely no clew tor the

tough looking suspects in their drag
It is evident thnt the job was the

who finding Munitoba und Albertu

To The Editor.
Dear Sir:--
Will you kindly allow us to
draw attention through the medium
of your columns to the tact that we
are endeavoring to Inaugurate a
Hoy's Brigade for the lads of (■ranbrook, and invite all boys between
the iikch of ten and seventeen to
join. The object of the Brigade is
"The advancement of Christ's King
doni among hoys, and the promotion
of habits of Obedience, Reverence,
Discipline-, Self-respect, and all that
tends towards a true Christian Man-
Uness." We need hardly say that
this is purely an undenominational
aftair, and we ask all the pastors of
the city churches to assist us as
they may be able. The Brigade
Headquarters is in Glasgow, and
was started in lttHIt, and has since
spread to all parts of the world.
,Thc lists of distinguished patrons
includes H.ll.H.The Prince of Wales
and the Archbishop of Canterbury,
the Hon. President being tbe Karl of
Aberdeen. We purpose to work along
the lines laid down by the Brigade
Manual which includes drilling and
gymnasium work centrally, and feel
confident tbat the high aims of this
'movement will practically guarantee
the sympathy of all who have the
ihest interests of the lads at heart.
The drills will be held every Mon
day night at 7.30 prompt, and after
six weeks, those who are found suitable will be enrolled and fitted with
cap, regulation belts and haversacks. We invite the interest of
parents in this movement which will
mean n great deal to the boys if
taken up with the earnestness that
it deserves, Those who attend the
drills will be allowed to spend part,
of tbe time in Gymnasium work and
will be instructed free. On enroll
,mont, a fee of 25 cents will be made,
and the small sum of ton cents per
month afterwards for tho necessary
expenses of the Brigade. There will
he nothing to pay until the boys
are actually enrolled after six drills.
i We are,     Dear     Sir, Yours
Hubert Hughes.

Joe Martin proves it
The World ol Oetober 1st, luoa,
stales the following with this head
ing. SfcasSATlUNALj uu large type j
was ihe encounter between Joseph
Martin and 8 Hit til Curtis on Labor
two of tin terms applied to oacU
other by men who once were friends,
torrent of burning oratory Interrup
ted. There have been many political
meeiinuH in the City of Vancouver
during thu past ten days, Imu none
of Liiem have provided mole sensational incidents than the meeting
held in the City Hall last night un
der the auspices of the Labor party.
Of course tne throng winch crowded
tlie Hall from curtain to curb did
not come there to hear the Labor
candidate but to hear the much advertised charges of Smith Curtis
against Joseph Martin. From the
very rtrst It was clear that the crowd
was prejudiced against Mr. Martin
in favor of Smith Curtis. Even before the latter got up tn speak there
were frequent calls for him ami when
he hiially took the centre of the
stage, it was amid thunders of applause. Rut such Is the fickleness of
the public and the flimsiness of Mr.
Curtis' charges, that although he
arose amid cheers he sat down amid
hoots and jeers of scorn. Even alter i
Mr. Curtis' talk there was evidently
a large section of the audience which
was prejudiced against Mr. Martin
when he arose from many parts of
the hall he was interrupted and
there were catcalls, and rags of alleged humor, but these only seemed
to give Mr. Martin a better footing,
and make him more determined than
ever to get a hearing. It has been
said on probably a million occasions
that Joe Martin is a good man in
the opposition, what should be said
is, that when he has opposition
Joseph Martin shows his strength.
He certainly rose to unexpected
heights last night, the manner iu
(which he went before a hostile au*
dience, captured it, turned it against
the enemy, and routed him completely, was a surprise to many who did
not know the man. But after all
[the main fact was that Mr. Martin
had right on his side, Mr. Curtis'
statements and charges were so silly
land flimsy that most of them bore
j their own denial even when they
were being uttered.

Victoria,    Sept.  10.--Rear    admiral
' O.  E.  KingBmall,  recently appointed
'to command the fleet of the marine
'lisheries department of    Canada, arrived    here    tonight to     inspect tlie
I naval yard and tbe     defences of Es-
quimult to report to     the Dominion
1 government concerning them In view
(of au effort to tie made    to have the
imperial    government    give over the
naval yard at Esquiruatt to the Dominion of Canada     for use as head
quarters of the marine and fisheries
department fleet on the  Pacific coast
of Canada.
He will also look over the fishing
grounds of the B. 0. coast and Investigate what is necessary to more
adequately protect them and will ex
amine the steamers and equipment,
light. liotiBM and aids to navigation
and other works within the purview
jof the marine and fisheries depart
ment, making cruises on the Kestrel,
Quadra and other vessels.
The most telling blow that Mr.
Joseph Martin delivered was when
he accused Smith Curtis of having
returned from Ontario with a propo
sition to accept money from Robert
Jaffray for campaign fund expenses
and then when Mr. Martin went further and blankly accused Smith
Curtis of having accepted money
from J. B. McArthur as agent for
Jaffray Cox and Co., the silence of
death reigned over tlie great au
dience for a moment, the people
seemed to be searching themselves to see what this meant this
man who had come here to accuse
Martin being placed iu the position
of the accused, and unable to oiler
any denial except to simply say, It
is absolutely false. This statement
was so damaging that the friends of
Mr. Curtis asked him to send a wire
to Robert Jaffray. Mr. Curtis went
so far as to write out a telegram
stating that Mr. Martin in a public
meeting had accused him of accept
ing money Irom tho Crow's Nest
Coal Co., ami that he (Curtis) wanted a denial. Mr. Curtis wrote this
telegram in the Commercial Hotel
j and at the solicitation of his friends
I started for the telegraph otlice with
it, but his heart failed him at the
last  moment and he never sent it.

Victoria, Sept, '.I. Announcement
was made today that the Grand
Trunk Pacific has purchased one of
the best sections of Victoria's waterfront at a cost of $150,000. It is
situated in an Important position
and, extending 400 feet, is so located
as to lend itself to a lorn'.' area of
wharfage. It. is now supposed that
the Grand Trunk Pacific intends to
make Victoria a terminus, probably
reaching hero as soon as Prince
W. Templeman of the Canadian
government, who reached home last
night, when referring to the subsidy
given to Vancouver island, said this
would enable the road to make Victoria practically the terminus of the

not      satistied    Sir    Wilfrid      that  it
I would be safe to throw Sir Richard
over at so critical a time. The old
knight though physically a cripple,
Is mentally a      power to he  reckoned
with, and an appeal from him to the
already n-stive old time liberals
would be a serious business on the
eve of all election. Sir Wilfrid will

The campaign, in Cranbrook was
opened on Friday evening last by
A. S. Qoodeve, Conservative candidate   for   Kootenay
The meeting'    was held In the Ed
son  Theatre There   were      a   lurgl
number of the rank and ule ol tho
Conservative party  present
Mr, V. A Rollins, president ol the
Young Men's Conservative Association was chairman.
Mr. Rollins, upon taking the chair
.stated the object of calling the meeting at this time, and in a short
speech introduced Mr A. S. Qoodeve
the Conservative candidal.- for tho
For over two hours     Mr, Goodeve
held   the   attention   nf     his     audience
His explanation of the labor troubles in Rosslnud in 1900 was listened
to with interest, and the record of
the Laurier administration, with its
history of graft and corruption was
read direct from the reporl of the
Royal Commission who investigated
these mutters.
Mr. Qoodeve, at once went Into a
personal mutter, whicli was reported
to have occurred when he was Mayor
of Rossland. It was to the effect
that he called out the militia to
Ideal with labor troubles while act
ing as Mayor of Rossland. He silted that Magistrate John Boultrce,
a Liberal, au appointee of Joseph
Martin, appointed special constables
to watch the mines It was this
magistrate backed up by Premier
Martin, who was attorney general at
the time, who caused these specials
to he sworn in. That when the Pro
vincial elections came on, and Smith
Curtis was a candidate, ami owing
to this feeling Martin ami Curtis
I tried to convey the impression that
| Rossland was in a state of riot,
[which was absolutely false as far as
the strike was concerned, ami this
occurred six weeks after he had
ceased  to he   Mayor of  Rossland
The strongest repudiation ot these
Insinuations aud charges, lay in tin-
fact that Mr. P R. Maedonald, the
j present Labor Mayor of Rossland.
land  at   the    time or      the strike   was
[identified with thi Miners' Union,
was now un ardent worker for him
against Smith Curtis in Rosslnud,
Continuing Mr. Qoodeve made a
telling arraignment against the pres
■■nt administration, asking his healers if there was one who could point
out a single act of the Liberal party
'in Ottawa, that was in the interest
Of labor or the working man. Take
the  Natal      Act,  said    Mr.   Qoodeve,
,tive times the Provincial government
had passed this act, and live times
the Liberal administration ai Ottawa had disallowed    it.    The Conser-
jvatives refused assent to the Japanese treaty,     and it    was shown how
ithe Liberals had allowed Japanese
and Chinese to Mood the province.
That Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in a speech
given in the     Commons, referring to
I the action of British Columbians on
the exclusion of Asiatic's, said. "1
tell them, you are wrong." How
Mr. Leinieiix declared that lie was
"not for a white British Columbia'"
and Sydney Fisher, another minister
of Sir Wilfrid's has declared that a
tew hundred thousand Japanese were
no menace to British Columbia or to
Mr. Goodeve closed with a strong
appeal for support in the coming
election, on the Japanese and Chinese records, of the present Ottawa
goverment whose cause is being
championed hy Smith Curtis, also
on their record of graft and corruption, on their oft repeated and present hostility to the interosta of the
Inboring man.
Mr. J. A. Harvey, K C, briefly
addressed the meeting, and said it
gave him, and he was sine the au
idience, great pleasure to welcome Mr.
j Goodeve the    standard bearer of the
great      Conservative      party,   and   to
hear his uhle and most unquestionable denial of the campaign lie that
hud heen circulated about him It
,wus rightly called a campaign lie.
He could describe it in more forcible
words, and they knew whal words he
meant. That the party would sup
port Mr. Goodeve with all their
powers, and now had the means of
.answering effectually the only point
tlmt had t n suggested against him.
i The chairman, Mr, Rollins then
called tor a hearty vote of thanks to
Mr Qoodeve, who hy his remarks
had demonstrated how wise was the
selection the delegates had made at
the Convention in Nelson He was a
mini that they could win with, and
would win with. He had the eloquence nf a grent loader, and he was
sure the people of the Cranbrook
riding would prove by their votes on
the day of election that they relied
on him as their leader, and that
they would return him to as ist Mr.
Borden in his good work at Ottawa. Till-'. PROSPECTOR, CRANBROOK, I! C. sKITKMUKI! 12, 1008

condemned and restated in Parliament by Postmaster General Lcm-

fell into line by promising free rural

is the last in Mr. Borden's platform,
was- made a direct issue in more

Tt can be said after a test of a
year, and of a severe fighting session, Mr, Borden's platform has vindicated itself and that it represents
today the desires and the hopes of
tbe Conservative    party, and a maj-
