Complains of the Damage Done
to Her Commoroe.
Paris, May 31. — The Journal Des De-
Bats today, commenting upon the commercial convention between France and
the United Slates, says:
"Tlm war is undoubtedly causing much
injury to our exporters and our trade
with the United States, if not entirely
Stopped, would certainly he materially
diminished. The convention gives us
advantage mainly for the future, which
we hope are neariilhatul, but at the same
time it has special importance, inasmuch
as it proves Washington is aware that

It is almost certain that Admiral Cer-
vepi's fleet is in Santiago harbor, bottled
up by Schley's warships. Word received
through direct secret means of communication from lusurgeut camps near Santiago Is to! his effect. I ti** reported that
the fleet aud soldiers are monopolizing

of famine prevails among the people
Schley is blockading the const uud pre-
venting tbe receipt of provisions.
Much excitement and dissatisfaction,
to which patriolisui is subordinated, 1 re-
vails.    It   was   believed   Cevera   would
simply take on supplies and go out to
meet Sampson iu battle. Instead the
appearance of Schley's squadron has
compelled him to remain in port walling
relief from the Cadi?, squadron. The arrival of that relief is necessarily uucer

that a mistake was made in bringing the
squadron Ihere, Cervera depends on the
Cad« squadron lo uncork the bottle into
which he is shut, lie is believed toknow
of the coming of that fleet The cable
is censored rigidly aud no ships are allowed to leave the harbor,
Santiago believes it impossible for the
American ships to dash tmlde after Ce«
vera, because, iu addition to the line of
forts, the channel has beeu thoroughly
mined. Meanwhile the Imurgeuts am
drawing all thelt available forces around

Opposition   Withdrawing   From
tho Field tn M,»iy piao.-*B—pro-
fjroBS ftntl Prosperity Deslrod-
Lnst Sunday afternoon Hon. Colonel
baker, who is today one of tbe most popular, prominent and able men to be found
in public life iu British Columbia, returned for 11 few hours' rest In his old
home in Craubrook before engaging In
the duties of a political campaign,
Despite the arduous work of lhe different cabinet positions he holds imposes
upon him Incessantly, especially during
lhe session just closed, working late
every night, the colonel is in goodhealth,
although fatigued; but the latter will
wear off with a couple of day's rest tn
the Invigorating nir of Cranbrook, when
the colonel will proceed to Inform the
people of South East Kootenay o,' the
great work accomplished by the Government in putting tbe country iu a prosperous condition, and also demolish what
belief may yet remain in the minds of a
few regarding the misleading statements
and even deliberate 1'ilsehoods, in some
instances, set afloat by au unscrupulous
Opposition, who have everything to gniu
and nothing to lose. This will simply
be n picnic for the colonel.
In North East Kootenay, the colonel
said, Manager Nellsou, of the Heaver
Lumber Company, will stand for the legislature, as an independent supporter ol"
the Government, Mr. Neilson is a very
popular man in bis district, with a clean
record and spotless reputation as a citizen nud business man, and will be elected.
Mr. Il.ikcr, while in North East Kootenay, waa strongly importuned to stand
for that riding, and was told that if be
would consent they would make Ids election practically unanimous. While feeling highly complimented the colonel felt
constrained to stand by bis home section,
and make the fight there. He is not
built on the ''runaway to Omenica"
principle or carpet-hag, either, and dees
not have to liy away to a district where
he is unknown (the colonel could find no
such place iu British Columbia, however,) iu oider lo stand for an election.
The colonel was theu importuned to
stand for both districts, but Mr. Neilson
had betn spoken of and prominently
mentioned in connection with the candidacy, and lhe colonel stuck to his resolution to place his political fortunes in
the bands of his neighbors, having no
Lar of the outcome.
i-il.ATiYi: WORK.
Regarding the work of the legislature
the colonel esteemed the act which will
furnish the farmer with cheap money as
one of the most beneficial to the entire
country that was passed: tbe promoting
of the different railroad enterprises he
also deemed of very great importance,
as without them no markets were available for the vast natural resouices of the
country, which wonld have to remain for
centuries longer without lhe advent of
the iron horse.
Regarding the Yukon (or Mackenzie
.S: Maim) railroad, Mr. Baker was of the
opinion it will not be built, ns the Do*
minion government absolutely refuse any
aid. However, the Province will build
a good wagon road over the portion
within Its boundaries thus making available the varied and rich resources of a
■ast country,
Mr. \V. P. Robertson, of Montreal, has
just been appointed by Col. Baker lu his
capacity of Minister of Mines, to the
Important position of Provincial Mineralogist, vice .Mr Carlisle, who recently
resigned to accept n more lucuratlve position With the lt, C. A. Mining Company.
Mr. Robertson is an expert mining engineer, also, and has held importartaud
responsible positions as such lit the United States, Spain and Mexico, mid comes
highly recommeiided.
Asked ns to why East Koolcnay was
not given more attention last year hy
the Provincial Mineralogist- the colonel
replied thnt In a country covering hundreds of thousands of square miles it was
n physical impossibility for one man to
cover it nil in a year, nud os there was
comparatively little doing last year in
tlie way of development work iii Last
Kootenay the official gave the time to
districts where more activity prevailed.
This ICRBOn East Kootenay would be the
first district visited, and lu fact Mr. Rob*
ertSOIl is now iu the country for the purpo it- and will make au examination into
the mineral resources of the district.
The Honorable Colonel Baker will
have much pleasure in addressing the
electors of Southeast Kootenay at the
following times and places; and begs to
Invite the Opposition candidate to attend any or all of the meetings.

was attended by many of Southeast Koo- I
ten     '   ' 	
sideied a retiiatkahle itffair at Ihe time, I *{
il now appears mote in the light of n
farce, Lhe belter element ot its composition having largely withdrawn from the
convention and entirety washed its bauds
of the affair, aud that part of it remaining occupying a jussive attitude toward
Mr. Baillle, the successful candidate.
Mr. Baillie is nothing if not a brilliant
schemer, but laying schemes and making them all slick was even beyond the
powers of Machlvelli. Mr. Baillie is a
recent acquisition to East Kootenay, and
he must be given credit for possessing
high and commendable aspirations, upheld by au unlimited stock of armor-
plated gall. To he able to defeat the
Hon. Col. Baker in a fair, square light is
au ambition worthy of being fostered by
any man, But Mr. IJ-ii.lie's methods
prove that his motto is "All is fair iu love,
war—or politics.
His first brilliant scheme connected
with his political ambitions was laid aud
consummated to the sorrow uf Mr. Grace,
the pioneer newspaper man of Southeast
Kootenay. Mr. Baillie succeeded iu getting a 30 day's option on the Prospector
lor himself and the linstock faction, aud
control of the paper lu the meantime.
Of course, it was never Intended to take
tip the opli 111, hut it would and did give
the gentleman fiom Kamloops a chance
to commit the paper to his Interests, and
throw down those ol his opponents who
have substantial interests in Lhe country
instead of simply u carpet-bag with
rooms to rent.
That much accomplished the next
move was lo gel a scheme through to
commit or bind all attendants upon the
Opposition convention to the nominee,
irrespective of lili-ir choi e. When the
oonvolition anBtmblcd t'-ieje was trouble
in the air, and wben ihe proposition was
sprung there was blood ou lhe moon, in
consequence of which about 60 men from
the Moyie country shook the dust of the
convention bull from their shoes rather
than be branded although trapped in Ihe
corral. Others who icuiaincd say that
if tbeir names are published ns Baillie's
supporters tbey will sue him and the paper for libel.
tiik von;.
When the vote was counted it was
found that Mr. Baillie had 66 to st for
Mr. Ross. Baillie's heetera were very-
noisy and ilotous, and when such respected citizens as Attorney Rossand Dr. Watt
sought lo express themselves they were
not allowed the rights of free speech.
When Or. Watt attempted to address the
convention he was greeted with cat-calls,
cries of " Rats!" aud other affectionate
greetings. Rats or no rats, however,
the Baillie terrier is at the end of its rope.
The respectable and substantial element of tbe Opposition are sick aud disgusted with the disreputable tactics dis-
played by Mr. Baillie and bis bosom
friends, and since the convention a large
portion of its members have either signified their Intention to vote against bint
or not at all.

Wars and rumors of wars. In which
the t'nlteil States might be concerned,
either ns principal or ally, have drawn !
ihe attention or the public to the
strength or weakness of our nrmy and
navy. Win. K. Curtis, the well-known ,
correspondent, throws light upon the
latter when he snys: "The strength of
a navy Is measured by arbitrary rules,
and not by the courage, experience nnd
skill of the officers and crews of the
ships, lt is possible thnt tbe peoplo of
the United States nro able to wallop the
British without the slightest difficulty,
nud that we ate equal to the Germans
uml French combined.   That is a mat*
ter of Opinion, and perhaps several people who have written to criticise my
statement that the I'nlted Stales Is
fifth lu the IM of nations may he entirely right, but practical experts do
not look nt things lhat way. Tbey
measure a navy hy the armor, tho tonnage, lhe horsepower nnd the speed of
ih<> ships, and the number, the caliber
nud tho effective range of thoir guns,
together with the numerical strength of
their crews,    For example, a ship of
5,000 tons protected hy armor is considered ut least ."ill per i-eiit. more powerful
than n ship of the same tonnage without armor. A ship of 7,000 tons with
live riipld-tire six-Inch guns is considered moro powerful than a ship uf lu,-
out) tons wlih ten old*fashioned, slow-
thing gnus of twelve-Inch caliber.
These measurements ure mado hy rules
thut ore ns unintelligible to laymen as
the computations of astronomers concerning tho heavenly bodies or those of
ongnleors in calculating the strength of
a bridge. While lhe public in Ind may
exaggerate Iho strength of the United
Slates navy, it enn be estimated with
the greatest accuracy from a military
standpoint, which measures tho courage, skill uud experlem-e of combatants the same In all nations."
After Ihlrty-slx years of faithful service William >l. Qulnlnu dr., cashier uud
director of the Chemical National Bank
of New York, made a mistake. The
president of the bunk and his fellow*
directors, on whom much of the burden
of his act must full, call it by no harsh*
ei name, und the world has not the
fight to do so. Quinism lent the bank's
money on securities which now appear
to he worthless. Ho seems tu have beeu
the victim of some of those most dangerous of lunatics, tho ovorsangulue
promoters of Iho Col. Sellers type. Ho
had a legal, though not n month right
to make tlie loans. He did not profit a
dollar by them. When he discovered
that he hud made a mistake anil thut
his bank would probably he a loser to
the amount of nearly $803,000, he made ;
it simple, direct ami frank confession
of the fault, ami resigned. The bunk
can stand the loss.  The heaviest blow
fulls upon the devoted gray head of Its
faithful servant. For he was faithful,
For thirty-six years he bad worked for
the bank, lie bad occupied a position
of the groatCSt trust. He had held the
institution in almost equal nlTei-lion
with his family. Me hud given lo Its
growth and development his mosl ;
watchful care and the acutesl powers
of his mind. He had passed upon bun
d rei Is of dollars worth of securities for
It, placed millions of dollars of lis money, always with Iho feeling that whnt
he did would be of benefit to tho Institution he served, and taking deep satis-
faction iu It. How, then, did he do the
bank this Injury? That Is the quos- ,
tion. The directors say ii was tempo-
rnry aberration. They say he lent thou,
sands to a man to whom no sane cashier would have lent a silver quarter,
This Is charitable and possibly Incorrect. It may be that long success deceives, nnd thnt as age advances men

"1 won't listen to another word!" she

when you read them properly."

"The next point is money. The seven

was therefore needed, and architects
thought a solid concrete bed liKt feet

would accomplish tho strengthening
During the operatlou of replacing the
old foundation It was considered expedient to provide means for noting carefully the slightest vibration of the

heavy weight was suspended by a stout
thread from lhe apex to a pan of thick
syrup located on the base, so that no
chance draught of air wonld be likely
lo sway the weight. An ingenious contrivance was so attached lo tlie weight

Red   Pass were the tinest  and largest
in the neighborhood; the bam and

score years old. And he wanted "Bonnie Bessie" for his wife.
"If the lassie thinks she cau fancy

mother, ns be stood under the low,
browu rafters of the little Black l.ynn
cottage, a bot Hush mounting to lhe
shining crown of his bold bead, "if

the bargain's made. I'm ready and
willing to lead her to the kirk to-morrow; and if a good, true husband and
some gold uud silver will make her
happy, she'll be ns happy ns a queeu
ai the Ited Pass."
Bessie listened, with wide, startled
eyes, burning cheeks, nud quivering
lips. She held her peace, standing, tall
and slim, in a sort of stunned silence,
until her gray-haired lover bad taken
his leave. Then she burst forth into
vehement, passionate protest.
The old grandmother suffered ber to
storm mull her passion was spent.
"Well. 'Hs o'er uow, and yc'll simmer down ami keep quiet, mebbe. I've
lei ye huve your sny, aud now I'll have

The springtime came aud the wed

I twinkling prettily below the short pet-

stream, when suddenly she uttered a
stifled cry and staggered to a moss-
grown bowlder, snt dowu. nud put the

there Is no other wny.   Then, Jamie,

Leaving her pitcher tbere she tossed
back her abundant locks ns she finished
this adjuration, and   went   speeding
away through Die    falling   darkness
with the light foot of u chamois,

across the room aud throwing up the

drawing the gold ring from ber linger

It is not so niucli a question of * olltics

no doubt that the present government

generally accepted throughout the province.      ——„—-——————-.
When Gabriel blows his horn in llril-
Ish Columbia ami culls upon the people
to take tlicir place Iu the happy land,
there will be tt cr> of objections fiom
Messrs. Semlin, Colloupt al , Of the Opposition. The ruling passion will prove
strong wilh them, eveu after death.
Every mnn who owns a dollar's worth
of property in Southeast Kootenay will
he the richer fur il when the Crow's Nest
Pass railroad Is completed. Col. Baker
has lnbort-il for the building of this road
for ten yeurs, nnd to bim as much, if not
more, tluin loiuiy other one man the people are indebted for the benefits to be
derived In Ihls way.
S0Uthea6t Kootenay will 1)01 have the
show in the next few yems that j>1ic
plight have, if the people cf this district
Bhould elect a mnn opposed to the Gov*
eminent In power. The i resen' Govern
ment is };oiug to he returned. Of tliis
fact there is uo longer nny question, Jt
js vastly stronger ti day than it was two
months ngo, ami at that time there wns
no doubt whatever. It Is the duly of tl e
people of this district to return a member of the preeeulGovernment,   That is
llle policy for tin ill to pursue IO properly protect tin ir i ate tests,
It Is now generally conceded that the
present Government will be returned at
the next election. This is nn Important
point to the electors of Southeast Kootenay. Those who h ive given tbe matter
any thought appreciate the fact lhat the
next few years will see a vast growth in
prlllsh G-l'.iin! ia. There will follow
with this growth a wnudptjully increased
demand for public improvements, and
lhe Government will he pressed to the
liiult to meet these -1 tn mils. As a business proposition the question arises with
the electors of this district: Do they
want ns a rep eseulailve a member of the
Government mnl one of influence, or du
they care to change for a new nml untried mnn who will have to spend years
to reach that stfge in his political career,
when he can be of the greatest good lo
the people he represents, Ai d if be be
opposed to ihe Government 111 power,
(lis progress will be tluw Indeed. The
people of Southeast Kootctuy do nol
feel as if they could pffunl to in ike a
change jnst at the • resent lime. Col.
linker hns scrvi il t'liciu will in llie past,
lie is a man of ability and Influence, lie
bus done much for hla district timing the
years he  has scrvnl   as   teptt'seiilalivc,
and be will have au opportunity to do
much more in tbe future. It hardly looks
like a policy of wisdom ti indulge in experiments at this time, The people iu
this district nre inking a business-like
view or the matter, and it is but natural
that they should.
Any mail, be lie foolor knave, ran tear

but it lakes n capable man to make one.
To ciitieise nml find fault with the Government is not ti difficult matter, hut let
these same people have charge ot the
Province and it would soon be a different
No party lines ate to be drawn in the
Provincial election. The government is
| willing to go before the people on a
j strni^lii busiuess proposition. They bc-
] lieve lhat their administration of the af-
i fairs of the Province has been for lhe
! best Interests «»f the people, and they are
willing to stnnd on the record made.
The "policy" of the Opposition is
based on the theory lhat if you everlastingly and persistently olject to any
measure presented by the Government
the people will conic lo the conclusion
that lhe obstructionists ate statesmen
capable of giving n beneficial administration to the Piovince, But the wise in
their day aud generation ore not so easily fooled, and in cotiEcqueilcc have lost
faith iu the Opposition party.
Colonel Ihtkcr is expected to return to
this district in a few days. Since Parliament has been prorogued the Colonel has
been kept busy with his many duties at
the capital aud in consequence has been
Unable to rein u ut an earlier date. The
Colom-l believes In attending strictly to
the businesi entrusted to his care by the
people, regardless of the fact tbnt the
elections are close at band, lie is of the
opinion that a man serves his district
best who serves hU people well. The
Colonel has pursued this policy since he
has been a member of lite legislature,
and his energy ami conscientious work
has always strengthened him from year
with the pi ople.
Mr. Baillle, editor of the Prospector,
wns nominated at the convention hell nt
Steele lust Thursday, by a vole of 66 to
.si. Although Mr. Baillie has been a
resident of the district only a few month:.
he seems to have been quite a success at
[Hilling political wires. If Mr. Hnillie's
editorial policy is iu Icnllve of his legis
lulive* policy, in evenlof Ills elejtion. it
would be erratic enough lo satisfy the
most rampant member ol the Opposition
party, He has one great advantage as u
political candidate lu this district. When
he is defeated he can pack his grip aud
move ou to some other district, as lie
moved from Kamloops to Ibis one. Not
having a dollar invested in tbe disttiet,
he can have il at nny lime* without any
personal saciitice.
The Opposition say they will cut off
appropriations if they get in power. In
a growing, prosperous, progressive country like the Piovince of British Columbia, such a poliey means commercial
death. The company that invests j^uo,-
uno iu an cilice building is compelled to
go into debt ior the amouuljor, which
Is the same thing, make a large ouilay
lor which thcie is uo immediate returns.
Hut the investment is made lor the reve-
tines of the future, and it is considered
go,d business. Appropiltttioils made by
tbe government to promote the advancement < f the province nnd develop unlimited resouices that will yield revenues
for all lime In pome, is also good business. But the Opposition will say no.
Wail until tin- revenues come in; wait
until lhe money is on hand; wait, watt,
wail,   Such a policy \yoidd virtually kill
British Columbia hi a few years tin
The people want none of it.
Colonel linker has been tried ns a legislator and has never been found wanting. 	
"We want a change" cry the Opposition, and then in sotto voice tbey add—
"because we want the oflices."
Mr. lirtillie snys the voters want " one
of tbe common people''as a representative. Not quite so "common" as offered
by the Opposition, Mr. Baillie.
The man who cat! believe he will go
abend by remaining still should by nature and circumstances be an enthusiastic BUpporter of the Opposition.
Colonel Baker has lived hi linst Kootenay for years, and worked early and late
for the good of the district,   Mr. Baillle
lias lived iti East Kootenava few months
and worked spasmodically for Grace.
Take your choice.
The property owners and business men
of this district have an unusual interest
In the election this year. They all favor
progress, for progress means success to
them. Stagnation means fuilure. That
is why they favor the return of Colonel
Maker and the sustaining of the present
It is evident that the friends of Ross
preferred to see Mr. Baillie led like a
lamb to the sacrifice. Had Mr. Ross
been a candidate and elected, his ability,
personal habits and facility for making
friends would have gone a long way to
make amends for his legislative inexperience.
