doer when he came right on top of a
big black bear. Munroe just had two
shols In his rifle and fired one of
ihem at the bear, which was not more
than 15 feet away. * The shot took effect, but not fatally, and the bear, badly wounded, turned on the hunter, and
with a terrible growl rushed on him.
By this time Munroe realized the seriousness of the situation and that his
life depended upon his remaining shot,
so he carefully took aim and fired just
as the bear was about to raise on his
hind legs lo give his victim the death
embrace peculiar to his kind, but fortunately for the hunter the shot took
effect, having penetrated the bear's
heart, and he fell dead at his captor's
feet. The animal measured over six
feet In length and weighed over COO
pounds, while the skin was valued at
$50. Mr. Munroe ls receiving the congratulations from his many friends at

Paris   Murderer   May   Escape  Capital
Paris, Nov. 14.���Tardy justice has
been meted out at the Paris assizes to
one of the most callous ruffians who
ever stood ln the dock. This was a man
named Elienne Hubert, who has been
sentenced to death for the murder of
Mrs. Velessek last February. The accused was employed In the restaurant
near the Gare St. Lazare, and fell ln
love with Mrs. Velessek, a widow, who
was cashier of the establishment. She
repulsed his advances, whereupon he
began a systematic persecution of ber,
which he continued after being dismissed from the restaurant. The woman
at last complained to the police, and
Hubert was sentenced to a short term
of Imprisonment.
As a result of the annoyance to
which she was subjected she lost her
position, and, dreading the vengeance
of Hubert, she quitted the neighborhood, changed her name, and opened a
newspaper shop In another quarter.
His annoyances earned him another six
months' imprisonment, which he completed In February. On bis release he
announced his Intention of killing the
At six o'clock one morning, just as
Mme. Velessek had opened her shop,
he rushed in upon her with a huge
knife. Attacking the defenceless won-
man with savage verocity, he plunged
the knife 26 times into her body. He
set up a plea of Insanity, but the doctors declared that he was perfectly
sane. The crime aroused such a degree
of public Indignation that a movement
is afoot to have the abolition of capital punishment, already decided upon
by the government, deferred until after
the man has been executed. The
chances, however, are that the man
will be reprieved because of the dlsln-
ellnation of the authorities to carry out
death sentences.

Washington, D. C, Nov. 14.���The
United States secret service announces
the discovery of a new counterfeit $1(1
"Buffalo" United States note. This
counterfeit is apparently a photo-lithographic production, printed on two

Politicians Develop Scandal to Defeat
Opposition Candidate���Judge's
Scathing Rebuke.
St. Thomas, Nov. 14.���"I have a
very strong conviction that the prosecute.- and defendant did all in their
power to pervert this case, and to
make it an instrument of malice to
cruelly injure an Innocent man."
In the course of a remarkable deliverance Judge Colter thus vindicates
the character of W. F. Hepburn against
the charges of immoral conduct which
caused him to relinquish the position
of Liberal candidate tn the recent by-
"Believing as I do," added the
Judge, that there was a foul and
most wicked conspiracy, and that the
legal procedure was perverted with a
view to making a victim of an Innocent
man, I have deemed It my duty to analyze this evidence at length."
The case came before Judge Colter
on appeal from the ruling of Magistrate Hunt. David Butler, hotel keeper of Orwell, was charged with keeping a disorderly house. He was convicted and fined $50 and costs, and
bis license was also cut off. The most
Incriminating evidence was tbat of
Butler himself, who swore that Hepburn had stayed at his place on the
night of August 12 and had had Improper relations with two women, Mrs.
Gllroy and Mrs. Stringer. Mr. Hepburn admitted being there on the night
in question, but denied emphatically
ali allegations of improper relations.
The women could not be found.
After hearing tho evldonce of Inspector Andrews, Judge t'olloe de.
Uvered a lengthy address. He held
that the charge against Hepburn was
not proven, because lt was supported
only by the evidence of Butler, and
Hepburn's position was one of much
more honor and responsibility than
Butler's. He then charged that it was
a plot for political effect. Both prosecution and defence united to pummel Hepburn. He believed the women
had been brought to thc hotel by Butler for the purposes of the plot, but
he did not believe there was any lm-
mor-..lty between them and Hepburn.
Thc whole thing had been manipuiut-
ed for "political effect" and for "theatrical dlsplay."
He agreed that the house wns disorderly, and therefore upheld the conviction.

on Germany's foreign relations. The
highly interested audience Included
Baron Aehrenthal, the Austro-Hungar-
Ian foreign minister, several ambassadors and quite 60 members of the diplomatic corps who occupied seats ln
the diplomatic enclosure. Princess
Von Buelow sat in the front row of
the chairs in the court box. Every
foreign mission had exhausted Its allotment of cards ln providing places
for distinguished strangers.
During the course of hie speech
Chancellor Von Buelow said: "Our relations with the United States continue on a most friendly basis, resting
as they do upon historical and natural
reasons. The frontiers of the two
countries do not touch nor do our political interests collide anywhere.
"In order to smooth our economic
relations lt will be necessary to arrange a mutually beneficial agreement
In an obliging spirit. As both side*
have this spirit It seems Impossible
that we should not come to an under
"I wish to take advantage of the opportunity to say that we are grateful
for the attitude of the United States
at the Algeciras convention. The United States had only a slight measure
of Interest at Algeciras and too a reserved attitude, but thioucbont it ���>��-
Tne u_ss���.i BA^iet representative,
Hr. White, took advantage of every
opportunity to harmonise antagonisms
and to contribute to an honorable
agreement for all the states concern
ed. That Is to be highly appreciated,
because the failure of the conference
would not only have brought into the
relations of Germany and France a die
quieting Iritating element, but would
also have Introduced the same element
in the general situation of the world."

Caplain Gore, who bas just returned
from a week's visit to Okanagan lake,
where he has been superintending the
construction ot the new steamer for
the Canadian Pacific, says that business is booming in that section. Two
C. P. R. boats, the Aberdeen and the
York, are both crammed with passengers on every trip. While the fruit
season is over yet there is a big business being done ln freights. Settlers-
effects are to be seen on every southbound steamer and there ls a large
amount ot building material for their
also being sent by steamer. In addition, much freight Is handled tn the
way of potatoes and of feed. Altogether the Okanagan is looking very well
and everything points to a boom next

" By out* won! we are BOmetlmOB Judged  to be

(ooliih.  Let int therefore be careful what we
A single glance at. any of tbe organs
of the opposition in (he legislature or
the province will afford conclusive
evidence that ;i retreat has been
sounded on the better terms debate.
Long before Premier McBride went to
Ottawa to attend the Inter-provincial
conference these organs were full of
suggestions as to what lie should do
and predictions as to what lie would
do, and no sooner was the conference
assembled than their columns were
Tilled with faked despatches misrepresenting him and his position before
his colleagues. The most fertile imaginations wen* exhausted In reporting
lhe fiascoes and peccadilloes of Mr.
The running fire of misrepresentation was kept up and every fiction
that could be invented to discredit the
premier was hailed with delight and
published with enthusiasm. All other
issues were permitted to laps.* and the
question of better terms was made the
whole platform of the opposition party. It was evident that this was to
be the issue upon which the election
-campaign was to be conducted and
tho party phrases so hackneyed and
stale were pigeon-holed with glee over
thc new plum thai had dropped Into
tile lap of the opposition.
Singularly enough, however, the electors were unresponsive to this partizan cry and upon the premier's statement of his case at Victoria on his return from the conference, the cordiality with which his account Of himself
was r< ur'irvd 1
hearty   endorsement   of   his   action   by
his own followers, was -something of a j
cool douche to the hopes of the opposition.
The alacrity with which the premier
announced his willingness to meet Mr.
Macdonald to discuss this question
was equalled only by the silence with
which that announcement was received by the opposition leader. Here
was a decided embarrassment and the
organs were flustered to know what to
do next. Finally, the deliverance made
liy the leader of the opposition in his
authorized interview with the Vancouver World dealt the death blow to
the hopes of the partizan press. The
organs found that the Goliath whom
they had been magnifying and worshipping wits hut a man of straw, and
the curiously sheepish look that is on
the faces of those who expected a
statesmanlike deliverance from Mr.
Macdonald is In Itself B sufficient
comment t. the shock with which his
followers read his  words.
So a retreat has been sounded and
the question of better terms is not to
play much part in the campaign In so
far as it can be used by the opposition. True, the falsehoods that have
beon already nailed are being repeated and the misstatement of facts goes
merrily on. but only those who have
abandoned ail sense of honor in political affairs receive these with any degree of satisfaction, while the men of
all parties who desire good government above everything else deplore
tin* malicious attacks of these conscienceless journals.
Premier Whitney has been held up
as the man who dealt the death blow
to Mr, McBrlde's claims at the conference, as though the fact of a Conservative premier being so situated
that he was unable to see eye to eye
with another of the same party should
close the debate forever. It is to Premier McBrlde's credit that In the face
Of the opposition of the members and
even leaders of his own party In other provinces he maintained his ground.
Such conduct, of course, cannot Im1 ap*
predated by the opposition press,
whose motto is to stand together In
all events,
We are now to be treated to a rehash of thc C. & .V. land grants aud
the Kaien island sale, for the fiat has
gone  forth that  ihe abandoned  skate
"jRftsible Is to he said ahout
the better terms question. The flat
hns gone forth and nil the little echoes
repeat the tune to the beat of the master hand. The local organ attacks the
premier on the 0. _.- W. land question
again, and it will not he out of place
to recall some of the incidents that
are inseparably connected with the
The McUride administration was
called upou to Implement a contract
which had been entered into by its
predecessors in office under which
the C. & \V. railway was to obtain certain grants of land. The act granting
the subsidy had been passed years
ago, had been twice re-enacted, and,
when finally referred to the courts by
the McUride administration, was
found to entitle the O. &. \V. railway
to certain lands. The act passed by
the present administration was not a
subsidy bill, but was an enabling act
carrying out the obligations which the
courts decided had been Imposed upon  the government.
If any fault is to be found with the
0. ��- W. land grants It must he found
with those who originally enacted the
bill and those who re-enacted it, making Its provisions binding upon their
successors. As to who these parties
were we need only refer to the records
of the house. Mr. J. II. Hawthornthwaite, when he spoke last in Nelson,
gave the names of those who were
prominently connected with this measure. We shall quote his own words,
as reported in the local organ of the
opposition.    He said:
"And who do you think, you people
that read the Dally News, passed this
Subsidy bill originally? The Liberal
party can throw no stones ....
over this bill because, just fancy, the
Semiin government which re-enacted
the original subsidy had a good Liberal for president of the council tDr.
McKechnle), that fighting Liberal, Joe
Marl!.: for attorney general, while F.
J, Deane, the editor of your Daily
News, was a member of the house and
of the party that passed this re-enacted subsidy bill."
That is what Mr. Hawthornthwaite
charged against the editor of the local
organ when lie spoke here. The words
have never heen contradicted. Like
many another charge of inconsistency,
and even worse, the morning organ
lies silent under these accusations. It
deems It better to overlook these
lapses inlo Inconsistency than to attempt a reply, because no reply can
be made which will extenuate the dishonesty of the partizan editor who one
day votes a subsidy and next calls
down anathemas on those who are
bound by Its provisions.
The spectacle is a strange one. A
newspaper twits the premier for allowing the late attorney general to take
part in a political meeting because he
sat In the hoiiRo <*���>-�� *-#u*u on the C.
& VV, bill, but it slinks into oblivion
when its attention is called to the fact
that its own editor sat in the same
house and voted the same way as Mr.
No man could honestly vote for a
subsidy bill, with its binding obligations upon his successors In office if
the exigencies of party defeat and the
cool shades of political oblivion make
il necessary for him to revile his own
measure. Nor can any honest man
who voted for a subsidy bill condemn
It in after years unless he is willing
to lay himself open to the charge of
being a time-serving political opportunist.
Such men are worthy successors of
the Liberal party which, during the
years of 1S7.-7S, acknowledged the obligations under which they were resting on thc 0. P. R. question, and then
stultified themselves by opposing the
construction of that railway as soon
as they were relegated to the opposition. Commend us to any sort of politician excepting the acknowledged opportunist. What must be the vanity of
such men to fancy their words can
carry weight.
Not since many days has Nelson received news with so much gratification
as that which it received the announcement last evening of the settlement of
the unfortunate dispute between masters and men in the Crow's Nest Pass
collieries. The intimation that President Mitchell had sent deputies to investigate tlie .situation was received
with some degree of hope that the
trouble would soon eventuate In pence,
but the apparently futile attempts at
n conciliation as reported to the world
prepared the community for a long
siege, ami they had begun to accept
with philosophical endurance the uncomfortable situation.
There will he universal thanksgiving
throughout the upper country that
work is to be immediately resumed aud
it is scarcely necessary to moralize
fun her upon thc Incidents of the
unfortunate strike, While it must
be admitted that public sympathy was
about evenly divided between the company and the men, the more so because there is a growing sense of discontent with monopolistic conditions,
it has come as nn agreeable surprise
to discover t lm - in nil egggptlft., in::'
ihidings of President. Mitchell's delegate uphold the contentions
of the company.
President  Mitchell  has always  been
regarded as one of the fairest and
most reasonable of labor leaders, his
very impartiality often causing distrust among those for whom he labored and fought. It was Mitchell's
record more than any arguments set
forth by tbe local unions that carried
a certain amount of weight in forming opinions on the attitude of the
miners. Now that his deputy, Mr.
Thomas llurke, has given his decision
on the questions at issue between the
men and their employers this confi
deuce tn Mitchell  will be confirmed.
Of the action of Sherman throughout the strike nothing need be said.
The moral to be learned again, so
often learned before, is (hat men
puffed up with a little brief authority
can do Irreparable injury not only to
their fellows but to the whole country.
The walking delegate is sometimes a
dangerous chai act er. and whether
Sherman is responsible, personally for
What happened at Fernie or not, there
will be but one opinion as to the advisability of labor unions keeping their
���own autonomy ns far as possible.
Now that an understanding has been
arrived at we may hope to see the
matter pass Into the category of forgotten incidents valuable chiefly for
the lessons it has taught and the warnings which ihe ever-possible recurrence
of such incidents may teach us.
To read the Liberal organs one
would think that Finance Minister Tallow's position these days must be a
most unenviable one. Not only is lie
believed to be in the dark about Bomo
important matters connected with his
position, but he has the difficult task
of scheming out how tu decrease taxation, increase expenditure ou public
works aud still show a handsome surplus. This is admittedly sufficient to
drive an ordinary man into premature
decline, let alone his being denied the
confidence of his colleagues. Some organs are hard up for something to criticise these days.
The Hedley Gazette says that the
Hritish Columbia mining law as it
stands is possibly the best mining law
In existence. An evidence of this is
seen in the fact that when the government of the United States were investigating with a view to finding a model mining enactment for thc Philippines, it was the Hritish Columbia
Mineral Act whicli they chose.

Letter   of   Resolution   From   Sandon
Miners' Onion.
Sandon, li. C, Nov. 13, 1906.
Editor of The Daily Canadian. The
following resolution was unanimously
adopted at a regular meeting of Sandon Miners' union No. 81, or the Western Federation of Miners, held here
on Saturday evening, November 10,
1906. Kindly insert the same in your
paper and oblige, very respectfully,
Whereas, In an issue of the Nelson
Daily News of Tuesday, November ti
there appeared an article under the
caption of "A lilack Kye for Sandon,''
iu which the Sandon Miners' union is
charged with fomenting trouble and
preventing the resumption of mining
operations on au extensive scale; in
hiuuuting also that the majority of its
membership were uot in sympathy
with the movement to prevent the introduction of Asiatic labor Into the
camp; and.
Whereas, Whenever requisitioned by
a mine manager the Sandon Miners'
union huve at these times endeavored
to secure for them any kind of help
that was needed, standing ready today
to co-operate with the mine managers
in auy measure which, in their opinion, will benefit the country as a
whole; and
Whereas, We believe no better evidence could be adduced of the working man's loyalty to the camp than
Ihe fact that many of the mining properties at present fu active operation
w��t*e brought to life through the intelligent efforts of men who hold membership in the Sandon Miners' union;
now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That we deprecate the publication of an article which can only
tend to injure thc camp and brand as
a malicious falsehood tlie imputation
cast upon the Sandon Miners' union;
be it further
Resolved, That we reaffirm our opposition to the employment of Asiatic
labor fn any capacity whatsoever, believing as we do that this class of labor is a detriment to every interest
that makes for the permanent prosperity of the country; and, be It further
Resolved. That a copy of this resolution be forwarded to every local of
the Western Federation of Miners In
British Columbia, and also to the public press.

Birds ihluk a good deal about thoir
dress, and are careful to keep themselves tidy and in good order. Ot
course, their fashions differ, because
birds themselves differ, but they do
not change. A robin today dresses
just as her grandmother did, and none
of her neighbors would dream of calling her old-fashioned. Neither birds
have many suits. Two a year is quite
sufficient for most of them, and many
nre content with only one. As a rule,
the gentlemen dress more gaily than
their mates, though they spend less
time upon their toilets. Just watch
your canary afler he has had his daily
hath. See how each separate feather
Is cleaned, pulled and looked over, and
how all the loose ones are taken out
and dropped. All this fs done by the
bill, for a bird's neck Is so flexible that
It can be turned In all directions, but
the bill cannot reach the head, and so
Mr. Canary uses bis foot. With It he
combs his hair first on one side, as if
to get nil the tangles out. Then he uses
his hair oil, for although complexion
powders are not known in the bird
world, hair oil certainly is. Ladles and
gentlomen alike carry fl about with
them. They have a little punch or sack
at the back near tbe tail for the purpose When Madame Bird wishes to
use it, she squee.es it out. with her
beak Just as you would press a rubber
bulb; then she laya the oil on her head
against, turning hor neck lu all directions until every feather In her head
is straight and shining.
The true philosopher Is one who
makes the besl of it when he gets the
.woivi|_of It. ^,

of gettln. work. They say it is difficult to find nnd people will not believe
they are capable of doing it. Men are
wanted for brush work in lho woods

are afraid of being stopped at the
