Great disappointment ia felt bere

Warren's Candidature io
Popularity of Conservative Cause is
Steadily Growing���Other News
From the Boundary.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Greeewood, Jan. 21.���The Conservative meeting in the Auditorium on Friday evening last was a pronounced success. It was in many respects the best
liolitlcal meeting held here for years.
Premier McBride aud W. J. Bowser
were present. The meeting was called
tor order at 8:30 by Dr. Spankie, who
presided, and continued until 11:30. A
patient hearing was given all the speakers. E. G. Warren, the Conservative
candidate, was the first speaker and
ln a brief speech frankly and tersely
stated the grounds on which he sought
the sutfiageB o fthe electors. G. R.
Naden, Liberal candidate, consumed
his allo.msnt of time lu criticism of
the McBride government. He was not
ln very good form for argument but
h e presentation was pointed and g.n-
t eir.anly.
E. Dynes, the Socialist candidate,
made a vigorous speech of 20 minutes,
chiefly in arraignment of Mr. Naden
and the Liberal party, although some
of his criticisms were directed against
the McBride government.
Mr. Bowser, who was suffering from
a severe cold, waa able to stir up considerable excitement and questions
from al] parts of the house were hurled
at him. His good humor aud willingness to treat all parties courteously
and answer all questions fully won the
audience, aud when Premier McBride
rose to present the case of his government the voters present were in a mood
to give him an attentive hearing. He
went carefully Into all questions of public policy for which his government is
criticized by the opposition and the
profound silence that pervaded the entire house during his address showed
at least that all classes of the people
were carefully weighing his words. It
Is generally believed that the meeting
made votes for Warren and the government. Although all parties tn the
contest claim the election of their candidates assured lhe present indications
are that Mr. Warren's election is a cer-

the paper, now wields the quill. He
is conducting a rather vigorous campaign sheet A slight inaccuracy lu a
recent issue was made the occasion
for a vigorous onslaught on the paper
at last Friday night's public meeting.
Tbe editor had stated that the Miners'
union had sent Mr. Naden a vote of
thanks for his services in connection
wltb the settlement of the recent strike.
This was an error, thc resolution of
thanks having been passed in connection with the strike last spring. When
asked If the Btatement of the paper
wob correct, Mr. Naden frankly stated
it was not, but for some unexplalnabte
reason did not suggest that the editor
had got tho two events mixed.
Patrick Dermody, until recently superintendent of the Providence mine,
and Andrew Sater have bonded thc Riverside and Budger claims at Rock
Creek and will begin early work on
the property. Tho Riverside and Badger are owned by Benjamin Perkins,
who has done a lot of development
work ou them. He has a tunnel many

from the level of the Kettle river, and
his last work-was on a galena load
nearly three feet wide. The price of
the bond haB not been made public,

An Active and   Sincere   Champion of
the Labor Cauae.
A telegraphic announcement of the
death of D. J. O'Donoghue, which took
place at Toronto last week, was re-
Ci ived with sincere sorrow In Nelson.
The deceased visited this city several
times during Ihe past five or six years
and always received a hearty reception from old friends who knew him
years ago in Ottawa. Dan O'Donoghue
was born iu Kerry, Ireland, in 1844,
and with his parents emigrated to By-
town (now Ottawa) when he was only
8 years of age. When 12 years of age
ho became an apprentice in a printing
office. After serving his time he became actively identified with the Typographical union, and in fact a leader
ln all local labor movements. So prominent was he in this connection that in
1874 he was elected in teir interest
to represent Ottawa ln the Ontario
legislature.   /Again ln  the election of
1875 he was returned to the legislature.
In 1879 he was offered, but declined,
nomination by both parties, and was
defeated. While in the legislature Mr.
O'Donoghue was an unswerving supporter of labor legislation, such as the
Mechanics' Lien Act, Master and Servants' Act. an act exempting $25 of
workman's wages from garnishee, and
others. He was seconder of the first
resolution ever offered ln that body
on manhood suffrage at elections, a
proposal which he has lived to see an
accomplished reality. Owing largely
to his trades union principles, thelimlt
of his employment became very circumscribed, and the spring of 1880 foimd
him working ln Toronto, with which
city he has since been associated. Here
he became attached to the Knights of
Labor movement and t he trades council, and was secretary to the legislative
committee of that body. He was always a strong advocate of technical education and has .represented the Toronto trades council on the technical
school board of that city since Its creation In 1889, and was also chairman of
sa'd beard In 1897.
Workers of the World.
The first meeting of Nelson Local
Industrial Workers of the World will

Lack of Proportion.
There must be something radically
wrong In the tortuous political career
of a fight-loving spellbinder who devotes an hour and ten minutes, actual
time, of a two-hour apeecb. ln replying
to the ten minutes criticism of a neo-
phvte who makes no pretence to political prescience. Willie was evident-
lv hard hit by the SoelallBt propagandist.
Dr.  King's Device to Secure Appearance of Enthusiasm at Hie
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Cranbrook. Jan. 22.���The fight Is going steadily against Dr. King here.
Last night he achieved another frost
at his meeting at Fort Steele, where
the last man of Liberal tendencies was
drummed up for days In advance by
the doctor'B most able lieutenants.
They were all In the Fort Steele locality during the end of last week and
when the crowd got together In the
hall last evening there were exactly 50
present, of whom 22 had been brought
over from Cranbrook. Audience-making Is now growing to be a necessity
for the Grit supporters. The labor
representative twitted the doctor on
bringing over sleighloads of applause
to punctuate the remarks of the Liberal aspirant. Frank R. Angers, the
present spellblnder-ln-chief for the Liberals, address s-sl the audience and proved, whnt needed little proving, that the
la. or vote is now practically deflected
from Dr. King. C. II. Dunbar and the
doctor spoke at great length and succeeded most admirably ln saying nothing. The meeting began In a frost and
ended lu n blizzard.
Party of Mounted Police In Far North
Not Heard From.
Edmonton, Alta., Jan. 22.���On December 22 lasl, Constables Smart and
Shand, of the R. N. W. M. P., accom-
panled by Sam Adams, left for the
Grand Eddy on the Mlllo river via
Lac Ste. Anne and a bout 500 miles
distant front that place. Thetr mission was to capture a rancher named
Horneback, who had reached there
with about 60 mares from Cochrane,
and who had gone insane from loneliness, losses of his horses and the cold.
The report of hie nodltlon bad been
brought to Lac Ste. Anne by an Indian
who reported that tho rancher refused
to eat and was ln Immediate danger
from starvation and cold. Since thetr
departure uo word has been received
of the constables, and It Is thought
they have gone aatray or failed to capture their man. Yesterday afternoon
Corporal Munroe and Constable Dowlen
left in search of their comrades. Tbey
will be joined by a guide at Lac Ste.
Anne. It is not thought that tbe first
party aro in danger for they were well
equipped. They should, however, have
been heard from before this, and thetr
long silence has caused some uneasiness.

Same Here.
To the Editor:
I have not yet pledged my vote to
any candidate ln Nelson. I have been
waiting to hear tbe policies of tbe
three parties and compare them. I
have heard the Conservative policy
from Premier McBride, and the Socialist policy from J. T. Mortimer. I hoped
and expected to hear the Liberal policy
from W. W. B. Mclnnes. I was present
at the meeting and I have read tbe
long report of his speech ln this morning's news, but I am still no wiser as
lo the purposes of the Liberal party.
Can you refer me to an authority on
the Bubject, personal or documentary?

Not on Brltlah Soil.
New York, Jan. 22.���Mail advices to

that the governor of Trinidad will prevent any gathering there of military
forces for the invasion of Venezuela.
He Is Informed that It has materially
affected the plans of General Parades,

had lieen making on the island of Cha-
cachai and at Tienta Bay. The men
assembled there have been dispersed
hy the police and are being watched.
The curiosity of the people of Nelson as to the character and calibre of
W. W. B. Mclnnes had been aroused
by the frequent advertising of his coming. The opinions of him expressed
today by a few representative men of
these wbo saw and heard him. all of
them selected because they are without
party affiliation In Nelson, may be of
A clergyman: "According to British
Columbia Standards, distinctly a good
speaker; not great, even crude, but
ready and fairly effective."
A transportation official: "Not a
vote-making speech at all, rather oue
to confirm the impression among neutral people that there ls no Issue at all."
A business man: "Very much alive,
ready and sometimes clever, but obviously Insincere aud therefore unconvincing."
Another business man: "Oh, very
tltesome; the same old list of chages,
roared instead of spoken."
A civil servant: "I was a close student of political battles for 20 years. 1
have taken part in a few. I never was
sn much disappointed ln an advertised
orator. It waa roaring without scoring."
A professional man: "I expected an
orator and waB disappointed. I listened
very carefully end tried to analyse tho
language and style aa well as tbe matter. The matter was Ill-arranged. No
speaker should devote half his time to
his own personality.    Besides,  where
he seemed about to score a point, he
always became Indefinite and inconclusive. His rhetorical questions were
very weak. Such questions should never admit of other than one anewer. In
respect of atyle and language my disappointment waa even greater. Wherever he bad a choice of words he Invariably used the wrong one. He bas
no regard for dignity. 'Humbugged,
buncoed and gold-bricked' may do for
bar-room argument, but before a mixed
city audience It Is vulgar and feeble
because of its vulgarity. Some of his
phrases were very poor: 'Vast gravity'
was a new expression to me; 'coughed
up' is vulgar and not particularly expressive. His emphasis by extra loud
shouting, by whirling his arms and by
clapping his hands, was nearly always
misplaced and meaningless. Mr. Mclnnes may be effective In coal camps,
but he will never be an orator."

Representatives of Party In
House of Commons
Belfast, Jan. 2.���Tbe Labor psrty,
which has to be seriously considered
politically since tbe unexpected success of Its candidates at the last general election, begins Its seventh annual
conference here Thursday evening.
The chief Interest centres on the
amendment proposed to the constitution of the party, making the organisation Socialistic without any reservations. Some of tbe unions affiliated
with the party will propose that the
vote of all union workingmen be taken
on the proposition, It being their belief
that the workingmen as a whole are
not Socialists. The executive will also
endeavor to have tthe conference Instruct the members of parliament as
to the stand they shall take on the
government's temperance UU, which,
with the Irish question, ls expected to
occupy the attention ot the commons
during the coming session. Other legislation, which It la expected they propose to instruct the labor membera
to support. Includes old age pensions,
aa eight-hour day for all workers, ���
law to stop "sweating" la the tailoring
trade, adult suffrage sod the equality
of the sexes, establishment of national
sanitariums, the substitution of arbi"
tratlon for war aa ��� preliminary to universal disarmament nod the establishment of labor papers. A resolution will

C. P. It. Plane for Accommodation of
Growing Traffic of Weet���Big
Montreal, Jan. 12.���Vice President
William Whyte, having concluded bis
conference with Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, It ls announced that six or seven millions will he spent next year,
and that tbe Independent line from
Winnipeg to Edmonton via Saskatoon
will be pushed ahead, with all possible
speed. A number of branch lines will
also be built and, although it Is not
stated, the belief Is general that the
C. P. R. will parallel the Grand Trunk
Pacific through tbe Yellow Head pass.
The principal additions to this new
mileage will be the completion of the
new trunk line across the prairies by
way of Saskatoon, which will give the
system an alternative route trom Winnipeg to Edmonton. A good deal of
building has been done In connection
with this, but there are several gaps
to be filled up. There Is every reason
to believe that the line will be completed ln time for thla year's harvest
all the way from Sheba, the present
terminus of the Manitoba A Northwestern, to Wetasklwln, on the Calgary A
Edmonton branch. Another line tbat
will be extended to the point of junction with the one just described ts the
Pheasant Hills branch, which Is now
completed as far aa Strassburg. These
will give the company control of the
regions of Saskatchewan and Alberta
and make practically three Canadian
Pacific systems through the prairies.
It haa also been decided thnt another
60 miles shsll be added to the line
which Is being built ta �� northwesterly
direction from Moose Jaw to the Saskatchewan river. . Ttm management
hope to get through the whole of the
heavy rock work that has to be done
ln connection with the double-tracking
between Winnipeg and Fort William.

Is 416 miles. It Is expected that SM

It is unfortunate that the provincial
political campaign has beap allowed
to get down to Its present level. Nor ls
It entirely creditable that while each
side is publicly accusing the olher of
the gt osteal corruption, privately the
protagonists remain friendly and perfectly and good-naturedly familiar.
Either thi' charges arc a matter of
form, for the entertainment of parti-
san audiences, and are not believed by
th'ir own authors, or���a far worse condition���political corruption on both
Bides is laken as a matter of course,
and In not considered of sufficient
Importance to affecl personal relations.
Who Is responsible for the character of the campaign?
The bandying of charges of theft and
bribery began With the attempt to discover a scandal in connection with Ihe
transfer of the Knl. ;i Island terminal
site by the government to the Orand
Trunk Pacific Hallway company. That
attempt sliould have ended wilI' the
reporl of the commission of investigation appointed by the legislature, ff
J, A. Macdonald was dissatisfied with
that report and really believed thnt
the charges of corruption mado hy him
c uld be established, he had a perfect
right to appeal lo the electors of the
provlnoe on that issue. Hut he could
have done so, If he had the material,
in the culm, judicial manner that he
has used on other occasions. Unfortunately he lost his temper while addressing a Vancouver meeting on the
subject, and denounced as "a hand of
adventurers, male and    female,"    the
group, consisting of Peter Larsen, railway contractor, E. V. Bodwell, K. C,
his solicitor, James Anderson, business
associate of Larsen, and Mrs. Anderson, whose only interest, in the affair
was that of her husband. Every circumstance of the whole transaction is
now matter of public record. The
charges of corruption have not been
withdrawn but have been silently
dropped. All that is charged now Is
that the deal was not a good one in
the interest of the province.
Had that been the original charge
there had never been any excuse for
personal v 1 ficat'on. Mr. Macdonald's wantonly and foolishly offensive
phrase is solely responsible for the introduction of the language of the gutter into the present oamnongn.
The downhill path is easy. The introduction of slander aud imputing of
corrupt motives did not stop with the
end of the Kaien Island Inquiry. The
same tactics were at once employed
in connection with every other Issue
before the legislature.
We do not accuse Mr. Macdonald of
complicity in the Pendray lots slander.
That lover of filth, the editor of the)
Vancouver World, needed no inspiration. To hlm abuse and dirt are as
the breath of life.
When dissolution came and Mr. Macdonald deliberately elected for a campaign of slander, ho could not, as a
matter of expediency, have done better ihan to summon to his aid \V. W.
B, Mclnnes, who is undoubtedly an expert In that peculiar style of fighting.
While he was a mere boy Mr. Mclnnes was branded by the Toronto
Qlobe as a liar and a slanderer. His
political victories have all been won
on Vancouver Island, in constituencies
where the majority of tho voters were
and are still employees of James Dunsmuir. who has always been unpopular
with Ihem, whether deservedly or not
Ih Irrelevant. Iu those campaigns Mr.
Mclnnes' only weapons were abuse of
James Dunsmuir and appeals to the
bitter class prejudices of his coal miner
ennst'tuente. His certificate of character from the Toronto Globe, and his
subsequent di'igent development of hla
only talent imply justified Mr. Mac-
drnald's clitic . His c urse during the
present campaign has afforded further
All the time that Mr. Mclnnes could
spare from praise of himself was de
voted to making or repeating charges
of dishonesty against all his political
J. A. Macdonald. who knows better,
i.s following the same unworthy course.
On thai issue���a tissue of siandeious
falsehoods���he has chosen to rest his
Now, it is true that a charge somewhat similar, is made by tlie Conservatives against the Liberals. It, however, does not Include every Liberal In
the province nor even every Liberal
candidate. We believe that Dr. Hall
is perfectly innocent of complicity ln
It or knowledge of it.
The charge is that the Liberal campaign is financed, and as far as can
prudently be attempted in Hritish Columbia, controlled hy the Ottawa machine, and that the price of that financial asHs.tano i is obedience to the machine, whose interests are those of the
(irand Trunk Pacific Hallway company.
The machine Is so powerful that not
only Mr. C. S. Hyman, but also Sir
Wilfrid Laurier. is powerless against
it. It provides the money and the men
that have corrupted constituencies
throughout Canada In both Dominion
and provincial elections. It is hardly
safe to send "the dark-lantern brigade"
into Hritish Columbia, but the money
is here; its influence is patent even
in Nelson.
These are the fac's c nfronting the
electors of the province; the charges
of corruption against Mr. McHride and
his colleagues have been openly investigated and disproved; the evidence of
the corrupt control of the Liberal party In the province by the Ottawa machine can be seen in every constituency, and even more clearly in the gen-
eial conduct of the whole campaign.
Mr. Mclnnes denies that there is any
truth in the story of his having offered
himself as a candidate for membership in a Socialist lodge. E. T. Kings-
ley and scores of other Socialists, many
of them professing to speak of their
own knowledge, say that he did make
such application. It Is no concern of
ours. It Is between Willie aud the Socialists. As we are not in the secrets
of the Nanaimo or any other Socialist
lodge, we are of course unable to offer
any proof or disproof of the story. We
have reported Mr. Kingsley's statement; we now report Mr. Mclnnes' denial.
W. W. I!. Mclnnes Informed his audience many times that he loved a
tight. It ls lo be hoped that all were
duly Interested ln the great man's self-
revelations. If he is really (ond of
fighting���of course ho meant with his
tongue only���he has neglected rather
n large number of opportunities In his
ten years of notoriety and lime light.
The Toronto Globe offered him a rare
opening in 1896: Willie skulked away
from Ottawa, As a member of the Mar-
tidite opposition he had a glorious opportunity for a fight against odds���the
only kind that appeals to a real fighter :but Willie went Into camp with
Joe and supported James Dunsmuir,
whom he had formerly abused with all
the might of his disproportionately long
tongue. After 1903 he had another
brilliant chance for a fight on almost
equal terms and with, possibly some
chance of ultimate success: he cowered
away to the Yukon, knowing that his
seat would be lost and the position of
the government secured beyond any
danger. Willie is no fighter. He iB
fxacly like Alex. Henderson; he "has
no use for opposition." Where the pickings are, there his heart is, and there
will he be found. Willie is but one
more of the class of Liberal politicians
llge Hug-the-Machine Preston, who
have made "politician" a term of reproach In Canada.
"The reliability of the Liberal press
may be Judged" from Its remarks ai/iut
tlle Conservative nomination in Nelson.
John A. Kirkpatrick was nominated in
the Conservative convention by the
gentleman who had rirst mentioned the
num.. of R J. Clark In that connection.
That gentleman did so at Mr. Clark's
request. Another member of the nominating convention, who had declared
his Intention of nominating Mr. Clark,
was prevailed upon by Mr. Clark not
to do so. At a meeting held before
the nom'nation Mr. Clark spoke on behalf or John A. Kirkpatrick and has
supported him loyally throughout.
There are personal and private matters
of no special Importance that should
not be Inflicted upon the public at all.
There Is no good excuse in the paragraph In Tha Dally News of this morning's date for the personal reference,
and the suggestion of "defeated aspirations" is not only false but silly, even
babyish. Is envy contagious or does
The Dally News editorial office contain morn than one whose aspirations
for political tame are still unrealized?
WIlHc offered his hearers last night
tho original information that he ls
"not an utter fool." Then why, In tho
name of sanity, did he ask an intelligent audience to believe that thc Lib-

Willie Mclnnes inquired last night
for the whereabouts of Robert F. Green.
Mr. Green ls in Kaslu riding���where
Mr. Mclnnes In spite of an urgent appeal, decided not to go���working for
his friend, sVell F. Mackay. Mr. Green
has no Inclination, possibly no ability,
to bellow and wave his arms on a platform . bul his quieter influence will bs'

that he did not deny that the oionto

Willie has generally been credited
with a sense of humor. It must have

Sketch of Numerous Rich Properties in
and Around  Hedley���No  Costly
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Jan. 21.���The general
Impression prevailing that it takes
vast sums of money to develop the
gold and copper properties of British
Columbia before they can be put on
a paying basis is entirely exploded, at
least bo far as the mining district of
the Simiikameen is concerned. It is
only necessary, to substantiate this
statement, to refer to the fact that on
the Sunnyslde mineral claim which has
furnished a very great portion of the
oris that has gone through the stamps
of the Daly reduction works in the com
pany's mill at Hedley during the past
two years, there is no shaft or hole
deeper than 30 or 40 feet, the ore being quarried from a surface glory hole.
Miniiii: in tlle Simiikameen dates back
to the placer days, when considerable
gold wan taken out with rockers and
the stream platinum which accompanied the gold was thrown away as valueless Most of the placer diggings
were found at Princeton and Granite
Creek, but while the ' placer diggings
themselves were soon worked out,
they pointed the way to the rich har-
vent of lode mining which was to follow, and which Is already being gathered in at Hedley from the stopes and
The    points    on    the    Simiikameen
where valuable deposits are known to
exist are at Copper and Kennedy mountains, One Mile creek and  Five  Mile
creek on  the  Upper  Simiikameen, at
Hedley and ln the mountain range between Twenty    Mile    and    Keremeos
creek, in the Middle Simiikameen and
at Keremeos and Shuswap creek ln the
Lower Simiikameen.   Copper Mountain
is known from development work done
on the Sunset group by the B. C. Copper Co., and in Volgt's Camp, done by
Kmll F. Volgt for himself and associates ln Tacoma.   The operations of the
1). C. Copper Co. were carried on exclusively under a bond which they had
from the owners for about a year, when
a disagreement as to some of the details  relating  to  what  claims  should
pass to the purchasers caused a cessation of the work.    Much of the work
done by the B. C. Copper Co. was by
diamond drill, and as holders of the
bond ln    all    probability    retain   the
cores, so that the results do not appear, this circumstance doubtless had
much to do with preventing an understanding being arrived at between the
parties.    The oxcellant   character  of
the ore on Copper mountain and the apparent quantities as shown both on the
Sunset  group and from the extensive
surface prospecting carried on by Mr.
Volgt. leave no doubt as to the bona
fides of the camp as a field for mining  operations.    W.  C.   McDougall,  a
pioneer mining  man of Orand Forks,
deserves grent credit for showing up
One Mile properties as he has done by
faithful and diligent work. The Nlcklo
Plate, together with   some    IB or 20
more claims owned by tho Yale Mining company, which is a sister corporation of the Daly Reduction Coo., of
Hedley, Is a mining property on a scale
which will make thc Simiikameen district a great mining camp for generations.   At this point the Simiikameen
river cuts through an areas of metamorphosed sedlmentaries  very much  contorted, folded and altered.   The whole
region from Twenty Mile creek eastward to Keremeos creek is a vast mineral region in which Is contained not
only  the  scores of claims  on  Nickel
Plate    mountain,    but   those    around
Twenty    Mllo    lake,    comprising   the
Golden Zone group, Rlordan mountain
properties and those on Stray Horse,
Independence,    Pearson   and     Green
mountains. On Independence mountain
Is situatod the now well known Apex
group, which has heen under bond for
the past year to the llrltlsh Columbia
Copper company.   This mining district
of the Middle Slmilkamieen may be said
to include the   properties   sometimes
c'assed  with those   down    Keremeos
creek.    And it Ib safe to say that a
large percentage of the mining properties ot merit   in   the   great   mining
camp of the Simiikameen are holdings;
whloh are poor men's propositions, as
they can be opened up and put on a
shipping basis at a small  cost, quite
unlike  the  average  gold-copper properties    in     other    British    Columbia
Victoria and Esquimau Seats Safe for
Conservatives���Dr. Ernest Hall
Exposes Lying.
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 21.���It developed
tonight that the Liberals have hopelessly alienated the support of the laboring men. As your correspondent wired
on Saturday evening overtures were
made by the Liberals to Dr. Ernest
Hall, one of the Laborite candidates
to take a position on the Orit ticket
for Vlctoriai City.
The Times this evening said the suggestion of such a move came from Dr.
Hall himself.
The latter in an interview with the
Colonist, which will be published to-
moorrow, says such a statement ls absolutely false. It was the Liberal executive which made the proposal to him,
begging him, iu fact, to take a place on
the Liberal ticket.
As a result of this row amongst the
Liberals and the Laborltes the former
have lost all sympa.hy of the working-
men and the small chsjnce of getting in
a single member of the Liberal ticket
ls being now hopelessly shattered.
. Hon. C. E Pooley addresses a splendid meeting of the electors of Esquimau this evening. His election is assured, his opponent, John Jardlne, being of the mushroom type who is not
taken seriously.
Unllased opinion Is that the government will have a majority of all the
Island members.

Heavy Hams
Increasing Scarcity of Wood and Coal
Extends to Winnipeg.
Winnipeg, Jan. 21.���The local fuel
fuel situation is still serious. Dealers
are still dealing out coal to customers
i:i ha I*-ton lots and the wood supply Ib
for the present practically exausted. It
la n sw generally conceded by dealers
that the re ls a serious shortage of coal
at Fort William and that before winter
ls over Winnipeg will be very short of
Several country points wired for coal
this morning, but none of them aro
in actual distress. The C. P. It. Ib
Bending out car shipments to most of
these points. A few cars arrived in
the city over the C. P. H. yesterday, but
not nearly enough to supply the demand. The C. P. R. ls giving coal the
right of way over the freight, except
perishable goods. Very little ooal
orde.ed from Ilu'u h has reached Winnipeg as yet, and dealers here are be-
g.nnlog to fear that most ot their shipments are being stolen for North Dakota, where a bad famnie prevails. In
this case lt is hard to tell what the
outcome of the situation will bo as the
local dealers depend a giod deal on
getting coal from Duluth at the eud
of even the normal season. Very little
wood ts arriving here at present.
Freight traffic seems to be completely
(led up and very Utile is expected.
E. C. Brooks, a prominent rancher of
Maple Creek, arrived tn the city from
Calgary on his way to Montreal yesterday. Speaking of the seriouBnoBS of
the cattle situation on the Western
ranches he stated that he had taken
considerable pains ln ascertaining the
causes of tlfts heavy loss and thought
that while extermely severe weather
was of course an Important factor in
some districts actual carelessness of
ranchers themselves were largely responsible.

Popular Price Show.
The above appellation is often given
to a certain class of travelling companies that make the small towns their
slumping grounds and inflict on the
trusting public a very Inferior form of
dramatic performances, thus earning
the name, and justly, too, of "cheap
show." This evil has grown so In tho
last few years that really reputable
companies, giving performances of
merit, are put to serious loss in attempting to break into new territory,
and it ls with a certain degree of doubt
that the public view a new name on tho
bill boards. The Summons Stock Co.,
for years the representative Canadian
stock organization, whose successes in
the Majestic theatre, Toronto, of two
years ago, and its more recent successes in Ottuwa and Hamilton have placed
It on the highest plane of public opinion, is a very prominent exception to
the above. This excellent company is
composed of ladles and gentlemen of
reputation in the dramatic profession,
and the plays produced are of the
highest class. George II. Summers,
who for years was a star at high prices,
has no equal ln his peculiar line of
comedy, and It is generally admitted
that one of thc best stock actresses in
America is found In Hello Stevenson.
The supporting company Includes such
well known people as Ofrln T. Uurke,
louis E. Appell, Fred Dorltty, Miss
Gertrude Stanley and Miss Florence
Natol. The vaudeville features introduced between the acts are of the highest class and altogether refined. The
Valpos, in music and mirth; the French
troue LaVern, in plastic poses, a wonderful exhibition of slatiie posing nnd
works of art; the latest pictorial melodies, Interpreted by iho clever baritono,
Chas. K. Morse; Wolls and Sherley,
sketch artists ,ln a jumblo of uonsenBo,
and the captain of ull comic singers,
George H. Summers. A moment'B ro.
view of Ihe plays produced by this
clever company will convince the moBt
sceptical that they aro the best procurable, Including In the repertoire
such successes as "Lendr Me You
Wire," "Carmen," "A Prince of Tatters," "Because She Loved Him So,"
und others. Their opening bill tonight
will bo "Mrs. Temple's Telegram."
