J. D. flcBRIDE
The liberal pnity held iis last
big nu'i'iiii3 in Cnuibrook Wednesday night, nu 1 il waa an enthusiastic gathering. Tbo hull
waa crowded with admirers und
HiipiKirturs of l>r King und  from
ihr beginillB U) tl ml lln'ir i*n-
Lhuaiusnt him i* faltered. Mr, Me-
Inm', u.is ihr ehairiuan and In*
introduced Dr, *l- II. King ua
liir lirsl speaker. When the
doctor stepiied Eorward the great
crowd present broke forth in rouud
nfler round of applause, evidently
determined to bIiow their appreciation of the iiitni aud liis cundi-
duoy in that way. The doctor
spoke of the campaign and the
iimniu'i* it lnul been carried nn by
tlie opposition. The majority of
people in the province regardless of
party prejudices, wanted a change
tn the government nt Victoria. They
were tired of i olitical mismanagement that had put such a blight
on the province, Mr. Oavon was
asking th;* people to oloct him,
and ns a candidate should bo nbla
to givo the people reasons fur
it. Ho claimed that the labor
pooplo should support him, but he
had plenty of time hi the campaign
but yet he hml never advanced a
single idea aa to liis position on
any issue in this campaign. There
were yet three days before election
and Mr. Caven might possibly
wake up to tin1 situation before
the cloBO and tell the people wliere
lie stands ami why they should
vote for Iiiin. Why should the
labor men support Mr. Cnven
rather than himself? What personal reason was there foi it?
What could he as a representative
cf Mr. McBride offer for the welfare of the laboring man'.'' What
had tho people who he was supporting ever done for the laboring
man of the provinco? Neither Mr,
Caven or the leaders of his party
had given reasons why the government should be returned. Mr.
McBrido visited Crnnbrook, and
lie failed to do so. .Mr. Wilson
ami Mr. Green, l>oth members of
tlie cabinet, hnd visited Cranbrook
early in the campaign, but not one
word about the policy of the government. Mr. Wilson came again,
spoke for one hour ami a half, and
yet fnilid to advance any reason
why tho peoplo should support the
McBride government. He did
giro ono reason that was sufficient
for all tlie people in British Columbia to vote against Mr. McBride
and his followers, and that was
the failure of the party to declare
itself on the Kast Kootenay land
steal. It was tlie duty of any
government when going before the
people to define its policy, su that
the people might know where it
stood on tho vital issues, but Mr.
McBrido and his whole party had
dodged it from the beg nun g of the
campaign to the present. Mr,
Wilson had attempted to ridicule
tho platform of the liberal party,
and the manifesto issued, but he
had uothitlg lo offer in return.
The speaker said that lie was willing to leave it to the people of this
district and to the people of the
province, loava it to their intelligence and sound judgment, and
that he would have no fenr as to
the result ou October 8, in Ihis
district ami throughout tlie province, When Mr. King closed the
people cheered again and again.
Mr. Mncdoiiiieli, of Nelson, was
noxt introduced. He is an enter-
tabling speaker and was well received by the audience, and soon
demonstrated that political repartee
was liis forte. After a few prelim-
iiuuy remarks that placed him in
touch with the audience, Mr, Mnc
donnell took up the liberal platform and by the use of ridicule
brought forth much applause from
the supporters of Mr. Cnven, He
said the liberals had a railway policy that covered the whole province
but that they they had failed to
outline ono on Salt creek, and that
was the one they would need on
October 3. He spoke of the past
votes of some of those in the government, and said that this government was not responsible for the
individual votes of the pnst. He
blamed Mr. Wells for Mr. Me-
Bride's position in  tho Kast Koot-
enay land deal, as he had acted
upon the report submitted by Mr. I
WeiU and then-fore should not Crow
be held responsible, and Mr. Wells
seeiiiei! in have satisfied the people
of North Ensl Kootetmj na he hail
been re-elected by acclamation,
lie thought it strange th it the con-
stirvativea in the government
should ho blamed f'-rall l-ad legislation in the past, while the liberals slu.ulii b ■ credited with all
good legislation nud ye! that was
what the liberals were chdming in
this campaign. Referring to tho
conservative party in the I* mdnion
he said the prosperity of tho couniry was largely due to the sound
foundation laid for the government l>y the conservative party
before the lihernls party cuiue into power. Mr. Macdonnell devoted considerable time tu Joseph
Martain, saying that tho election
of tho liberal party meant the placing of Mr. Martin at tlie head of
affairs in this province, and that
the peoplo were nut willing to nc-
oept M.'irtinism in British Columbia, He had a good word for the
laboring men and said his presence
in this district was evidence of his
desire to repay a debt uf gratitude
to the laboring men by doing what
lie could to advance the candidacy
of one from their ranks. Mr. Macdonnell is at home on the platform
anil he takes well with liis audiences, as ho keeps them in good
humor all the time.
Mr. Gallilier. M. P., closed the
meeting with a short address, confining himself chiefly to the
record of the liliernl party during
the seven years it had been in
power, and claiming for it the
only legislation that had over boon
passed in behalf of laboring mon,
saying that the record uf the party
in tho Dominion was a guarantee
as to what the liberal party in
llritisli Columbia would do when
it was placed iu power, Referiug
to Mr, McBride's connection with
the Kast. Kootenay land deal, he
said thnt it was the business of
any cabinet minister to know tin
facts of an important land deal,
and not lake the report of any colleague, and that Mr. McBride
coidd uot be excused in that way,
aud ns far as lhe liberals uf North
East Kootenay beuig satisfied with
Mr. W. lis. it was evident tlmt the
conservatives were also, since they
had failed to nominate a man
against   Mr.   Wells.    As   to   the
ord of the provincial house, it
was shown that every measure
passed for the benefit of the laboring man had been introduced by a
liberal. As to Joe Martin, he had
noticed that it was the conserve
tive speakers who were worrying
over  that   gentleman,  and    thnt
iry conservative voter dealt with
the question like Mr. Macdonnell.
Pile speaker dosed with a tribute
to Dr. King, saying he was a man
who stood well, not only in South
East Kootenay,'1 but all over the
province where he was known, as a
mau of ability and integrity and
one who would be a credit to his
district as a member of the local
house. Mr. Gnllthor is a forcenbh
speaker and was accorded u fine
hearing nnd generously applauded
throughout, lie was also given
number of boquets by the ladies,
As soon as Mrtialliher had take
his seat, some ono cried, "threo
cheers for Caven," and his supporters iu the house gave the
cheers and when they had liiiished
the chairman announced "God
Save the King," and after singing
that three cheers were called for
King, and they were given with n
whoop and the meeting closed.
Nat Lumber Company Cmfloycs
Viaku a Hit.
The largest and one of the  most
Successful    dailies    ever   lii veil    ill
the distriet uf South Kast Kootenay was the Mnn held last Friday
night at Wanlner by the employes
of Crows Nesl I'ass Lumber company. Kllllv ^"ill people Were present, and from beginning to end.
tin e\i*ut was marked liy Unsociable fooling prevailing and the
total absence of anything that
would tend to mar the success of
the occasion. Nearly seveutylive
people from Craubrook were pre-
-nt. and a huge delegation from
'ort Steele. Arrangements had
been made for a freight to take
lown the Cranbrook people and a
ipecial coach was attached for that
purpose. Another train was to
return about 'A o'clock in the morning, but unfortunately it was delayed, yet this was no fault of the
committee, aa they had used ox-
•nt judgment in every arrangement having spared no effort or
expense to make the dance a credit
to themselves and to the district.
The dance was held in the company's dining hall, a large building
just fitted for taking care of such
large assemblage, The walls
and ceiling were hung with bunting, and flags, and the porah light*
with Chinese lanterns. Musicians from Fernie and Wardner
furnished inspiring strains and by
10 o'clock tlio dance was on and
everybody had a most enjoyable
time until the last note died away
at an early hour in the morning.
About oin! o'clock lunch was served, anil by systematic work everybody was served without confusion.
Aud what a lunch it was. The
lies'* of everything and plenty for
all. Before dancing was resumed
Mr.'Luud. the general manger of
thii company, in a few well chosen
re narks expressed his satisfaction
ov>r the success of enterprise, extending everyone a hearty welcome
oi. part of the compauy, and asking the guests to dance to their
hea.'t's content. Mr Hu-c-iicrott,
on behalf of the employes, thanked
the management for their courtesies, nnd their visitors who had
come from distant points to contribute to tho success of the dance.
The event will be a memorable
one in the history of Wurdner, and
sets a standard that will be difficult for those who have charge of
the annual balls in the future to
The committees that made the
dance a success were composed of
the following people:

On Saturday night, Francis, tho
o year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs
Fred Bryan of scarlet fever. Everything possible was done for the
tho little one, but death had claimed her and the i ml was only a
epiestion of hours. The family
have the sympathy of the entire
community in tlieir 1 erenvenont.
Funeral services wore held Monday forenoon and the remains were
iuterre I in the Crauhrook cemetery.
From ths Roaring King.
Frank Williams, who has beon
in charge of the work at the Roar-
King on l'erry creok, is down from
the mine, ami yives a somewhat
flattering account of thiiiL's up that
way. During the season Work was
confined mostly tu prospecting the
outcrops of the vein aud making
oxeavatiouB in which to setup a
diamond core drill    At a numlwr
nf these places   some excellent ure
was uncovered and altogether excellent conditions developed.   The
niiiierali/.atinii at places is very extensive, and nt other places then-
is some unusually rich ore. At
one place there is a considerable
pmntity of tilluriuin uf the same
character as mined at Cripple
Creek. Col. On this blisters of
gold can be raised on the ore by
throwing it into a camp fire. At
one place, while making a trail, a
stringer of ore was uncovered, aud
itherwisea great deal of information
obtained, which indicates that it is
an ore-bearing region likely to
equal anything in the west.. One
of its disadvantages *s the lack of
tunnel site for preliiuiuary prospecting, and it is the intention uf the
management to prospect the ground
with a core drill, before undertnk-
iug its development.
Another shaft will be sunk to
hinlrock on Perry Creek. The new
enterprise is being promoted by
(Jus Theis and John Sherwood. It
if their intention to sink to U-d-
ruek on the flat mar the hotel at
Old Town. Messrs. Thies and
Sherwood are the pioneers of the
creek and have Ih en very successful in all their undertakings. Mr.
Sherwoixl located the Red Mountain and Badger claims, the first
located upon the oreek, and developed them to a value of Sl'2.000.
Mr. Thies was one of the promoters of the hydraulic mine now being equipped by a large syndicate.
He and Jack Thompson first conceived the idea of pay on bedrock
Inflow the falls and runk a shaft
and equipped it with waterpower
hoist and pump, and in which they
also got excellent result.*?. Mr.
[2tf.Hr*. .,1bo mvna the lease of the
creek whero the BteambWrcl *a «&
work. In these operations and experiences he hns gained a great
deal of knowledge of the creek, all
which leads him to the belief that
the best pay i' the creek is on
bedrock In-low the falls. It was
here that the best pay wns taken
off the surface in early days, and
it was always believed thut the
bedrock was rich, but the depth
and the amount of water to be
handled with crude appliances deterred the undertaking. It was
fouud in the shaft above thnt the
bedrock was very smooth and steep
and not suited to hold -u'old also
that the best pay was found down
stream from the shaft, ami Mr.
Theis' theory is that the creek being wider lielow nnd the bedrock
rougher aud flatter better pay
lodged there. Several shafts with
steam hoist and pump will lie sunk
during the winter,	
On Tuesday, September 20. at
high noon, at the home of tin*
bride's parents. Mr* I), A. Burton
and Miss Ethel Rycknian. Rev,
Boaoham officiating.
After the ceremony the small
party of relatives present sat down
to a wedding dinner] and *t;ood
wishes were extended to the happy
couple. Miss Ryckmuu is well
known in Cranbrook and has a
host of friends iu the social circles,
while Mr, Burton is one of the
best known conductors on the
Crow. The young people-
left that afternoon for Mr.
Burton's former home in Nova
Scotin, and will be absent about
six weeks. On their return they
will occupy the handsome home
that Mr. Burton has purchased on
Baker hill. The Herald extends
congratulations and best wishes
for a life of prosperity and happiness.
Cecil Prest Tells What He Saw While
In tbe East.
Cecil  Prest. of the  Prest Photo
0 inipauy, returned the first of tin-
week from an extended tour, lasting about nine weeks, to the principal cities uf the east. .Mr. Prest
made the trip with a double object,
to take ii vacation and nt the same
time study tin- latest methods in
vogue by the leading photographers uf tlie east. His mother.
Mrs. I'rest. s-peut considerable
time last winter hi a modern school
uf the photographic art in the
states, liesides visiting the leading
studios. As a result she introduced in their work here the latest
improvements known in the art,
ami has lieen producing a class ami
style of photography unsurpassed
ou tin- coast or iu the east.
S|H';ikini: of the result of his observations. Mr. Prest said that he
was suriiris.il to find many of the
photographers he met iu his travels who were not using the improved methods that hail brought
forth so much praise fur their stu-
di i. Even in some of tin' cities
they were unable to produce the
light and shade effects that had
made their work so popular. "But
in Winnipeg, Toronto. Buffalo and
other cities I found studios usim.r
improvements that characterize
the proirressive photographer, and
naturally made myself familiar
with them, and they will be introduced into our work here. The
studios that were using modern
methods I found charging prices
much higher than we charge for
the same style and class of work.
We will make some imprjvements
that will give us still better facilities. We believe in progressive
photography, and that the people
of South East Kootenay are entitled to the lx*st. There is nothing
nicer than an artistic photograph
and nothing worse than a poor one.
1 had to hurn* home so as to Ix**
ready for the Christmas rush.
People who want to be sun; of pictures for the holidays give in their
orders early, and that work is al-
ib-Ouj Ouuiiiiig ■■'" -
The people of this district will
heartily agree with what Mr. Prest
says regarding photography, and
Cranbrook is fortunate in having a
firm like the Preat Photo company.
They have spent large sums of
money to perfect themselves in the
art and to secure the latest and
best in the way of appliances. As
a result one is able to secure just
as fine a piece of work as can be
had in Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, or any large city.

A yenr after the mutiny bad been
quelled tho government sent out n

and occasionally one got leave of nh-

teres of debris were to be overhauled.
Id some places tbe great stone blocks

one wns now reported, lie had boon
■eeu on the outskirts of the ruins by
natives and soldiers alike. It Was
(Whispered among the unlives that the
■plrlt of the dead rajiih, IVnrlng that
tbu trensuru would nt length be discovered by his haled enemies, had sent Lhe
tiger to guard It. The Idea was ridiculed by ull white men, of course, yet
tbey bad to nek now luil go tlmt there
was something queer nhout the appear-
■nee of a tiger lu thut neighborhood.
Those who had seen him pronounced
tilm a tremendous animal, lie did not
range away from the ruins. Neither
did he attack people passing along tlie
Idgtiwny or the ryots tending tlieir cattle oa the grazing grounds close by.
Aa (won us It was an established fact
tbat a tiger had taken up bis quartern

In two days ho killed two otllccia und
two gun bearers. These men were

ambushed tbem. Tbo bodies, strangely
•snougb, were not mutilated. If thc tiger did not kill cattle nor devour his
tiuman victims, what did be subsist on'.*
All thia gossip about tbe ruins and
tbe ferns and the tiger was told a guest
one evening by the commissioner on

Idea of his crossing bis master's path

During! the next two weeks the tiger
killed another officer and two beaters,
and then of a sudden he was to be seen

greatest, ho uncovered a cave. Strictly
speaking, it had uncovered itself by
tlie Bltdlng down of a block of stone,
but of all the peoplo who had wan*
ill-red over the ruins none bad noticed
it. Tiiere was every evidence thut the
tiger tiad made this spot his lair, but
on the limn' was a strong box which
had been buttered open, while scattered about were half a dozen gems.
Some one had discovered and borne
away the rajah's treasure. Who thut
somo one was the commissioner soon
discovered. As he was making bis way
out of the ruins he came across the
il.'iid body of his eavesdropping servant and not far away the bloated cur*
eass of the tiger. The beast was truly
tho largest of his species, and his enormous teeth and claws were in good
working order. Beside tbe corpso of
the servant was n leather bng, but lt
was torn and empty. Tbe man had
started to carry the gems away, but
the tiger, still lurking in the ruins, had
sprung upon and killed bim. And yet
how came the beast dead? Where had
tho gems gone!
Tho commissioner raised no ulnrin,
but upon his return he related the particulars to a few intimate friends, it
was queer talk, und as n matter of fact
ids friends began to believe tlie man
daft or joking. Nevertheless they nug-
gcbted that the tiger must have swallowed the treasure, which had proved
loo much for him. He received the remarks In earnest, nnd, sure enough,
they did solve the mystery. It wns not
to his benellt, however, nor to that of
the government Next day he returned
to the ruins to llml thnt tlie carcass of
the tiger had been dissected. One single ruby had been left in tho stomach,
and only one. There must hnve been
more than one native in thc plot, hut
their Idelittty hns never been discovered. Only those who turned them Into
cash can tell, hut doubtless It was
thousands and thousands of dollars.
Perhaps somu of the rarest stones to
be found lu England, France or America today came from thut collection.

llin Qneatloncra,
'We all hnve our troubles," said the
colored philosopher who runs the elevator In the pnstnlllee, "but the worst
of It la that wo think no one has nny
but ourselves. My greatest trouble Is
answering fool questions, uud I get a
good many of them In the course of
the day.
"Yesterday there was a hung jury,
und one of them asked mo If we had
gootl beds for jurymen who weru kept
overnight! I told bill) I hadn't seen
any yet, and I'd been here a good
while. Today the wenther buruau
hung Its Rlgn, ns usual, ln thc elevator. It said 'Fair,' and that's ull, same
us It often dues, It hadn't been there
live minutes when n man from up the
stale came lu ami asked me, 'Where's
this yer fair atV I told him It was In
the circuit court room If It was anywhere. 'Waal,' *ny*B he. i can't take
It In.   I've got to go to the theater.'
"And that's lhe way I got Viu right
along."—Philadelphia Telegraph.
