To the I'Mitor of the   Herald.—Dear

request from you the favor of its publication:
To the Kditor of the Prospector.—
Dear Sir: Take this general proposition:
Tlie writer who can represent a celebra
lion in which some five or six  bicycles.
1 some ten or twelve horsemen took
part as " Formed of thirty b'ltes and ioo
horsemen," cannot be a very truthful re-

To such a reporter it may appear smart,
ud for campaign purposes wise, to mis

is oul of all comparison with that
of the graceless reporter referred lo.
The most graceless of cads can sneer
at his betters, and forget, too, tliat it is
only ,t short two years since be was supporting with all bis little might a political adventurer whose only hope of success lay iu befooling lhe simple peop'e
of our iiille town—lawyers ami laymen
ud whose whole campaign consisted
Ungraceful abuse of his opponent and
of the great corp'irntions then carrying

one of these was the C P. R,, which,
whatever its origin ami history politically, is the piide and great cementing
force of our Dominion.
A reporter or a newspaper may grace-
fully and with ci edit (as well as cash),
change sides politically, but the turn-

judgment without risk of disc:edit and

There are some of the Herald's renders who appear lo think that this paper's
allusion to hoodluuilsm last week applied
10 the Martin forces only; if lhey were
the only one's who acted like hoodlums,
then lhey are right. The Herald did
not pretend to say il whs or was not applicable to nny one side. The fact of
the matter Is that if any person is u di:

Come to lhe country to receive the benefits of higher rates for all kinds of labor

is the one whu accepts the benefits of

unwilling lo heslow the same benefit upon his fellow laborer or business man,
sending awny to "cheap" markets t"
buy articles he may need.    The "cheap

them. At Inst the whites challenged the
natives to a trial of skill in shooting, ami
ibe offer was accepted.
The Englishmen fastened a mark to •
treo nbout 100 yards distant. The ollicers led olf and made whnt they considered protty ffllr practice, but the natives
didn't seem to be at all Impressed. Then
tho fellows with thc matchlocks were informed Unit It was their (urn, und, much
to the surprise of the whites, every man
of them threw himself on his belly aud
begnn to crawl through tho underbrush
toward Iho target. Tbey squirmed over
the ground to within nbout three yards
