Ontario. Mr. Ames hns gone ull
through the west with his campaign

of thu public domain in thut country, thus accepting the challenge to
make his charges in the places where
the transactions occurred and where

These transactions never uppeured in
the public accounts, nnd it wus not

Sir Wilfrid Laurier can thank himself fur the appearance of provincial
premiers and ministers with Mr. Bordon at his future meetings. Among
these will he Sir James Whitney,
when he returns from England, nnd
some of his ministers in the meantime; Mr. Roblin, Premier of Manitoba; Mr. Hnzen, Premier of New
Brunswick; and Mr. McBride of British Columbia. Sir John Muedonald
wus not disposed to mix federal and
provincial politics. Mr. Mackenzie
and Mr. Blake took the same view.
But Sir Wilfrid Laurier came into
otlice by an alliance with provincial
premiers, three of whom he took into his ministry. He hus thrown the
whole federal influence into every
provincial contest since he became
premier, declaring that the late Ontario Government was the right arm,
and Premier Parent's administration
the left arm of his own ministry.
Sir Wilfrid's right arm wus neutly
amputated three years ago by the
people of Ontario. He lost his left

But every Conservative provincial
victory bus been obtained ngninst

When Sir Wilfrid took office he had

Just before parliament met lust
November, Mr. Pugsley, speaking
in New Brunswick, made certain
charges against Mr. Borden in regard to campaign funds. When the
House met he was challenged to
make his charges there to Mr. Borden's face. Among others who made
this challenge was Mr. A. E. Kemp,
of Toronto. It came naturally from
him, because Mr. Pugsley's attack
on Mr. Borden was in the form of a
reply to statements made in Toronto
by Mr. Kemp. When Mr. Kemp
faced Mr. Pugsley in the House he
said among other things:
"The Hon. Gentloman (Mr. Pugsley) has resorted to the lowest Bort
of a campaign in this matter. He
has gone before the public meetings
of his partisan supporters and he
has made statements which I challenge   him   to make in this    House

from so radical partisan of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

When entertainments such as theatricals take place the King and
Queen and the house party enter the
ballroom in procession and sit on
either side the gangway. Plain evening dress is de rigueur at Sandring-
ham, where the frock dress is never
worn. The King wears thu ribbon of
the garter on festive occasions, how
ever. At the conclusion of the entertainment thu royal procession is
again formed, and the way is led to
the supper room, where no formality
is observed. The King goes nbout
among the guests seeing that they
are having supper and enjoying
themselves. A few specially favored
ones he takes up to tho Queen, who
chats for a minute or two with each.
His Majesty is the life and soul of
the party on these occasions, and
nothing can exceed his amiability

such trophies won at races and regattas by thc King are at Band ring-

Have the Electors in this Ridinc
been betrayed by the Federal
Government at the request o
Smith Curtis
 o —
This is a question for thu electors
of Kootenay to consider.
The Cranbrook Herald, editorially,
says:— "If there is a bye-election in
this riding, and the Conservative
party win in the Dominion, the Herald will do nothing to interfere with
the election of Mr. Goodeve.  "
Wc wonder if this is intended as a
bribe, knowing full well that the
Kootenay elections arc to he delayed.
Thu Herald also says: "Wu would
rather see a bye-election buhl in thu
Kootenay. It is a game of politics
at which neither party has reason
to object."
Thu above statumunts are made
with a candor that is unmistakable,
and suggests to the reader, that the
game of politics is to bu played to
and in the benefit of Smith Curtis,
to the detriment of all lovers of a
square deal, to an honest and fair
Smith Curtis, ins "organs" aud
"heelers" realize thai thu only pos
Bible show for him to win is to delay the election until after the result of the other constituencies is
known throughout the Dominion,
knowing the tendency of many to be
in with the party in power, that
these votes would be cast against
them were the elections held on the
same date as the general  election.
Smith Curtis, when nominated,
said: "He was in favor ol holding
lhe elections in Kooteuay on the
day of the general election Since
then he has been in consultation with
the powers that be at Ottawa. Has
he like his friend Duncan Ross of
Yale Cariboo, experienced a fear id
defeat if the election is pulled of! on
the date sot for the general election.

The defeat ol the Laurier adminis
tration In the coming campaign will
bring satisfaction to the people of
Canada generally Many dF those
who wci'i1 strong supporters of the
presenl government will feel a .sense
ol relief .tt its defeat. The system
and methods ol the government wore
hostile to the best interests of the
common people of the country. It
was the men with the "pull" who
gol everything, and In their interest
thc    whole     mnchlne   was   worked.
Sltch n system must sooner or later
bring disaster, and so we tind many
who have heretofore supported the
i government, now rejoicing in the
prospects of its downfall, Public
faith In the future of the Dominion
is brlghtoned and strengthened by
the exertions of the opposition in
the hist session to bring good government oul of chaos ami corruption.
• • • •
The civil, (or lather uncivil) service of the nonunion is rotten. It
[must be wholly changed. Other and
better methods o( conducting the
business of the public offices of the
Dominion must be adopted. The
barbades. and grafters must be removed.
• • • *
Another o( the duties which must
be undertaken is a radical amendment to the laud laws so as to bring
them In harmony with thc interests
o( the people instead of thc monopolist. Immense tracts of land are
now held by the grafter and his successors who have not complied with
tbe conditions of the purchase or
grant made to them, and there are
t .ill other areas held under purchase
by grafting speculators who have
failed in the conditions of payment.
There should be a rigid scenting into these matters and where-ever it
is possible the lands should be made
to nvert tiack into the hands of the
government and opened for settlers,
under the provisions of the general
land laws. The departments of the
civil service and the administration
of public lands are those which tirst.
need attention. There are many
other matters of equal importance
which need attention, but they may
come  nfterwards.

It was also found that one dredging
company, working in St. John harbor, in ten months received $376,000,
and it is stated on good authority
that J10 0 ol ilns covered all operating expenses. $150,000 purchased
the     dredge,   leaving the     company

Those gifted partisan lawyers who
are assisting on behalf of the Government in the ('asset's inquiry have
been procuring testimony in Montreal to show that great improvements have been made in the lighting of the St. Lawrence. Some of
the witnesses of the lighthouse
hoard grew so enthusiastic that the
Judge had to remind them that it
was not the time for stump speeches
The question whether the St. Lawrence should be better lighted was
not referred to this Commission, but
thc question whether there was dishonesty, extravagance and graft and
lack of conscience in the department.

The Minister of Agriculture is evidently distressed over the success of
Mr. Foster's meetings as compared
with his own. Consequently Mr.
Fisher took occasion at Lachute to
accuse Mr. Foster of misusing lhe
funds of the Foresters. The Minis
tor went so far as to suggest that
if Mr. Foster had not. done as he did
the Foresters would not have needed
to increase their assessments. He
did not venture to put this false
hood in plain words, hut preferred
to convey the idea by insinuation.
Mr. Fisher has hud his chance during two sessions to discuss this insurance matter in the House in Mr.
Foster's presence, hut never spoke a
word. He becomes suddenly hold at
the part meeting iu Argenteuil,
where there was no reply. Mr Fisher knows perfectly well that tbe
change in the Foresters' assessment,
was made hecaiise lhe authorities
decided that the rate was too low,
and absolutely without regard to
the result of past investments. He
also knows that the Foresters' in
vestments through lhe Union Trust
('ompany, under Mr. Foster's man
Agomont, were the most profitable
that the Foresters over made, lie
knows further that the society had
ample security for every dollar of
the loans which have heen the subject of controversy, and that these
investments broughl huge profits to

August returns show that the revenue continues to fall oil. The short

Try Preventics, At My Risk
With Book on Colds.
Just to prove merit—to show you how
quickly Preventics can and will check colds
or the Grippe—I will mail you free ou
request these sample? and my book. Simply
address —Dr. Shoop, Racine, Wis.
Preventics are thoroughly harmless little
Candy Cold Cure tablets. No Quinine, no
laxative, nothing sickening whatever.
To check early Colds or Grippe with "Preventics" means sure defeat for Pneumonia.
To stop a cold with Preveniics is surely
safer than to let it run and be obliged to
cure it afterward. Preventics will however
reach a deeply seated cold. Uut taken
early—at the sneeze stage— they break or
head off these early colds. That is aurely
better—that is why they are named "Preventics." Promptness however is all-important. Promptness in the use of Preventics may save half your usual sickness.
Feverishtitss, night or day, with child or
adult, suggests the need of Preventics.
Write Dr. Shoop, Racine Wil., today for
Dimples and booklet. Preventics are sold by
The   Niagara
The old time ram has been a faith
ful servant, It wus good in its way
and has served many it guud pur
pose, but tlie Niagara is so much
better than uny ram you have seen
tbat you would not believe there is
any relation between them. And tlie
Niagara combines all the old ram's
Kood points-its independence of at
tention, its steadiness and Lnexpen
slveness, with a host of other new
qualities, Where an ordinary ram
could »»'t be placed, on account of
thu lack uf sutltcii ut fall in a spring
or stream, the Niagara will work
most successfully; where an ordin
ury ram will pump but little water
on account of a small supply, slight
fall or great elevation, the Niagara
will deliver abundant nnd reliable
Stream; where an ordinary lain
working to its full capacity, gives
Insufficient water for the purpose required, ii Niagara of larger size may
be used to give thousands of gallons, Engines have been installed In
places Where tbay have pumped day
in und day out, year after year,
from two to four times us much water us old fashioned rums of equal
size had been able to do in the
same location. In dozens of sites
whoie the common Hydraulic ram,
water-wheel pumps and windmills
had been tried in vain, bountiful
water supplies are now boing furnished by Niagara engines.
Don't infer, however, that the- Niagara is some complicated new-fangled arrangement which .it takes a
mechanical engineer to understand,
for it is, in fact the simplest of all
machines. Its simplicity is its
strong point. It is simpler by fnr
than even the old-fashioned ram, and
will work for years without as much
as a drop uf oil. It does not have
to be "aired" as all other rams
have to be, periodically, an ingenious air-food keeping the uir chamber always supplied. It cun be started and stopped and regulated to
pump much or little water by u
child, and that is all there is to it,
the rest it does by itself. As an
eminent railway official said, "The
Niagara is the simplest and conplet-
.st application of hydraulics that I
ever saw. It comes nearer to giving
you something for nothing than anything I know of in mechanics".
The Niagara engine is a neat, compact, substantial machine—it has no
wheels nor whirligigs, nor ornaments
upon it, and it is made fur bard service. The smaller machines nre made
of the highest grade of iron, steel
and brass, the larger parts being
cast in the finest gray iron, while
the rubber packing is the best that
money can buy. The larger machines
are built of steel, the bases being
east in the best open-hearth steel.
There is nothing to break or blowup or to get out of order about them
and they will wear a life-time.
The Niagara Hydraulic engine
costs only a trifle as compared with
a windmill, a caloric engine or a
gasoline engine of similar capacity.
It works day and night, season in
and season out, with practically no
attention or care; it does not freeze
nor water log and will perform service thut no other pump except n
steam pump, costing dozens of times
as much to install and maintain,and
requiring coal and oil nnd an engineer will perform.
The Niagara is adaptable anywhere that springs, or running water
are to be found. Because someone
has told yuu that you could not get
water to your house of farm or mill
by any ordinary means, don't calculate on u Niagara engine not being
able to supply you. It is for uist
such places that wo are looking. If
there ls running wator around anywhere within u radius of a milo or
two, more than likely wo can arrange to put it in where you want it
And if you want largo quantities
uf wator; thousands or tens of
thousands of gallons, then wo cun
serve you, for the Niagara is the
hydraulic ram which is successfully
built in tho larger sizes. Vour idea
of hydraulic nuns will undergo a
change when you see one of those big
fellows. You have seen rams pump
ing a stream about like a goose
quill and supplying a few barrels a
day to some farm or burn yard. We
sell little ones like that and they'll
pump several times as much water
in the same places, but these big
machines of ours throw u stream
like a fire plug and furnish water
enough for almost any purpose you
can well Imagine. A battery of two
or more of them can be used if no
ecssary and a million or more gal
Ions n day raised.
Zonla, Ohio. Jan, 10th l'Jiir>.
The Niagara Hydraulic Engine, in
stalled by Jonnson & Kiindorburg, of
Yellow Springs, two years ago, is
giving perfect satisfaction. It fur
nishes plenty of water for three
tanks at tho house, 20(1 foot uwuy
and 2r> foet above the ram, with Imt
2, foot, of fall, giving our country
home every advantage of the city
watoi'Work-S. It also keeps a fit) barrel tank at the bam overflowing,
I have not been to sec it for at
least six weeks through zero weather
but It keeps pumping away.
