called to superintend the Installation
ol an irrigation system on the rrult
farm owned by Mr. Lome Canrpb-.il,
the general manager of the W -st Koot
enay Power ami Light company. Mr.

on fruit Irrigation having experiment.>d
on frull growing in this valley for
twenty-one years. The famous Covert
fruit farm was started by Mr. Covert

purchase supplies when he bought a
small shlpmeut of fruit trees consisting of twelve different varieties of
apples and two varieties of peach
plums, Ihe total cost of these trees only-

World and Province Will Settle Circulation in Court.
' A case somewhat anlque in tbe annuls of the lawcourta of llrltlsh Columbia, and iiosslbly of the continent. haB
been Initiated by The World. This is
a suit against the Vancouver Printing
& Publishing' Co. lhat a statement
published in the Vancouver Dally Province, Issued by the defendant company, ls untrue and calculated to injure the business of lhe plaintiffs. This
Is the assertion, that the circulation of
the Province imper ls more than double that of any other evening pajier
published ln Vancouver. The World
Is the only other evening paper published In this city and it Is alleged
thasl the statement has direct reference
to It. Ab the case is sub jiullce comment is out of place at this time. It
may be isiinted out, however, that Ihis
Is probably the rirst occasion uiion

Tin- question at issue fs not u mere
abstract mutter, but one of vital Interest to the advertisers or both Ihe
papers concerned, who are entitled tss

to the results of the elections I11T2
states wllh many evidences ol anxious
Interest The president Ib particularly anxious, too, that the next house
house shall be of his political faith. Although the Republic*!!! are willing to
admit lhat the democrats nre to make

Tomorrow Will Put Lid on
Candidates' Fate
Personality and Platforms of Office
Seekers Count For More Than
Old Time Traditions.
Nt-wYork, Nov. 5.���Today will wit-
neaa Ihe closing scenes in one ot the
moat remarkable political campaigns
in the history of New York stale. Hy
midnight the last public word will
have been sjHiken and nothing will remain but the story to be (old by lhe
ballots themselves. Who the hero of
the tale will be caniiol be predicted
with any certainty. Old time methods
of anticipating the results of an election have been rendered almost useless. Party lines In most sections of
the state have been thrown aside, if
not quite obliterated. Politicians of a
lifetime have been thrown aside and
thousands of voters tomorrow will follow their chosen leader rather than
any party.
As an illustration of the conditions
which exist, both Ihe resjrectlve, leaders of the great parties, basing iheir
estimates upon what they claim have
been careful and painstaking canvasses, have reached widely different conclusions as to what thc result will be.
The managers of the Republican and
Independence leagne campaigns each
announced himself as convinced that
his candidate will have a plurality of
at least 200,000 votes.
In some other ye*rs the Monday immediately preceding election baa been
largely a day of rest or has been devoted to the quiet work of arranging
the last details in preparation foi* the
real struggle which ls to come. Not
so today, however, as from the very
first the two leading candidates have
had a strenuous schedule before them.
Charles E. Hughes, the Republican
candidate for governor, will address
seven meetings this afternoon and evening in various sections of New York.
William R. Hearst, the democratic
and Independence league candidate,
will address three and possibly four
meetings tonight
Fears that the ballots for use in the
greater New York fn tomorrow's election might not be printed in time for
distribution as a result of the delay
arising from the nomination contests
in New York county, were ended today.
Karly today Ihe last of Ihe 2,400,000
ballots required came from the press
and the work of distributing them to
ibe pulling places was begun. At' little over 27 hours was consumed in
preparing the ballots.

Magistrate la Doubtful of Guilt of tha
(Special to Tbe Daily Canadian.)
Fernie, B. C, Nov. 6.���The charge
against Lawyer L. I'. Eckstein for interfering with the course of justice waa
heard before Police Magistrate Whim-
ster on Saturday. It will be remembered that Eckstein was accused of
assisting a procuress to escape the
courts of justice and flee the country

It has become such an accepted ens
torn for tho Liberal papers tu twist every action of any Conservative government or mombor thereof within tho
Dominion of Canada Into an offence
against decency, morality and honor
that auch custom must be our apology
for calling attention to the somewhat
remarkable deal In lands in Southern
Alliertu liy   Hon, Krank Oliver and to
which we made brief reference a few
days ago.
In the last session of tlu* Dominion
parliament, Hon. Mr. Oliver, in reply
to a question by a member of ihe opposition, said that It was the purpose
of the governmenl   to sell   no more
lands In (ho Nor'hwesi en bloc to any
syndicate or company, and he gave
his personal pledge as a minister thai
all such hinds in future would be sold
only to actual settlers. 1 laving made
this pledge, which was acci pted by the
members of the opposition, tbe criticism of the administration of his department was closed.
Shortly after tlie making of this solemn covenant on the floor of the
house thu same minister transferred
en bloc, 880,760 ucros of land in Southern Alberta to a syndicate of three persona, composed of one J. A. McGregor,
A. Hitchcock and Major A. Aubyn, tho
first uf these being a personal friend
of Mr. Clifford Sirion.
The facts concerning this remarkable broach of faith were not disclosed
until the property hud been transferred
by these three men to an Kngllsh syndicate and the syndicate had published
and circulated the prospectus of their
enterprise In England. Then it was
discovered tha. the original jnirchas
era had already made un Immense prof
it from tbe transaction aud that the
syndicate itself expected tu realize
nearly a million dollars profit on its
operations within a few years, owing
tu the exceedingly favorable terms upon which it hud acquired the lauds.
The lands were suid at $u per acre
with a proviso in the purohaae grant
that on the completion of irrigation
works tbey were to have a refund ol
$2 per acre on the whole bluck, making a net cost of $1 per acre.
More strangely still, no money is to
be paid to the government for thu
land until 1_1U, uud successive payments are spread over a period of
years, which admits ut a scheme uf
speculation und peculation that is almost without parallel in Canada.
The Ottawa government organs
plead that the land is arid; thut it is
costly uf irrigation and worthless without it, and thut u million dollars will
huve to be spent before the lund is
cultivable or vuluable.
The prospectus of the syndicate,
however, states, ou the authority of
1 .oiessor Saunders, who was In the
employ of the Laurler government us
an irrigation and land expert and uow
In the employ ot tlu* syndicate, that
three-fourths of the laud Is Incapable
ni Irrigation and that without recourse
to Irrigation this land is worth, in various bloekH, prices ranging from 17,60
to $33 per acre. Only ubout one-fourth
of the hind in in need of irrigation
and the olher bloekH are already being
turned over by the syndicate a< proli's
that are immense,
The Toronto News (Independent)
commenting mi this sule hy the government, has this to say:
"Moreover, il is alleged thai the
lands are of no usi* unless they ure irrigated, and that no one would settle
upon them because of their aridity.
'Yet the report of Mr. Saunders, a
former governmenl employee, now re-
mined by the company, says the soil la
first class, and that those portions or
the land which cannot be Irrigated���
about three-fourths of it���will sell
at from lfi to $15 an acre.
"Tho fact remains that the company
fs likely to make a profit of over
$3,000,000, while the government win
get only abom }*_oo,U'W, und not all of
thai until 1!��15. We regard such a bargain us Improvident. The proper policy would have been for (ho government to havo constructed the Irrigation works, and to have charged the
expenditure on the hinds benefitted.
In this way settlers, who finally must
pay tho three million dollars profit,
would have secured the lund at a very
much lower price than they will pay
now. Surelv the Immigration department could fill up a tract of Irrigated
While we do not give publicity to
these facts for the sake of attempting
to discredit Mr. Oliver, ns we lay uo
claim to being expert in the matter of
land deals, we think the unbiassed
reader will agree with us that the strictures of the News are in good lasts
antl are quite in order.
The malicious practice of the local
opposition organs of bounding the provincial government every time it sells
a garden plot somewhere in tlie neigh"
borliood of the North pole Is iu strong
oontraet with the measured terms of
the Xews.
H is a matter or common comment
ou the streets und throughout the
Country that the attitude of the Conservative papers ou the question of
Premier McUrlde's uclion at the recent
Ottawa coufercuce is in strong contrast
with that of the uppositiun organs.
The particular respect in which this
difference is remarked ls in tbe frank,
outspoken aud unequivocal endorsement of Premier McBride on the one
hand and the shuffling and evasive,
when not contemptible, criticisms ot
the opposition.
Wbile the premier knew what he
wanted, knew what the country wanted, and insisted on the special consideration being accorded to Urltisb Columbia which the legislative assembly
by resolution affirmed to be Its due,
there has been only one course opeu to
any newspaper which has a spark of
loyally to the province or is able to
rise above the status of a purty hack.
That course was to endorse the firm
stand taken by the premier and it hus
not beeu a difficult task to find reasonable and weighty arguments in support of such a position.
On the other hand, the policy of tbo
Opposition organs has been oue conscienceless abuse, misrepresentation,
piffling und mud slinging, without any
pronouncement on the questiun of better terms for tho province. They do
not say that the country should not be
satisiied with tbe paltry addition to
tbe subsidy that was suggested by the
conference nor dare they say that we
should have taken it and been satisfied. As a consequence the organs or
the opposition rind themselves without
a policy or without nny rational ground
of appeal to the electors and the public at large.
In order that their evasion may be
made clear to a discriminating public
we propose to publish a series of questions which are being asked by tbe
Conservative papers and we shall
await with eager anticipation the answers that will (not) he forthcoming
from the opposition press.
'I'he questions were first asked by
the Colonist of its adversary, the
Times, but they are equally askable
of every grit organ in the country because tbe tactics of all these have
been equally evasive and afford no
belter clue to the position of the grit
organs than those of the Times.
"Do the opposition organs concede
(hat itritish Columbia Is entitled to distinct and separate relief, as distinguished from the other provinces?"
"Do they grant that tho cost of administration in this province la rendered exceptionally great by reason of
permanent  condi I Ions?"
"Do they admit that we must submit our case for relief to the adjudication of the Eastern provincial premiers?"
"Do they claim that these premiers
Constitute an Impartial and competent
"Do tbey Insist that the Dominion
parliament cannot grnnt Hritish Columbia exceptional relief without tbe
assent of tbe premiers of the Eastern
"Do thoy contend that Mr. McBride
ought to havo accepted $100,000 a
year for ten years in full satisfaction
and discharge of our exceptional
If our contemporaries will answer
thi'so questions without Indulging iu
flights of sarcastic fancy, their own
readers will havo some Idea of what
their attitude toward this great question Is.
'i'he local apologist for the spunkless
opposition has been somewhat silent
on tho question of Mr. McHride's "hit"
of late, probably for Ihe reason Ihnt it
has discovered thut whenever It opened
Its tnuulh on tho subject its uttorunces
furnished thc Conservative press wllh
tiio very best possible manufacture of
campaign thunder. If It will con do-
Hcend, however, tu answer tbe above
questions Ihe public will have a somewhat more definite Idea of where it
stands un the question of provincial
rights. Let no one suppose for a moment that it will do so. It haa no convictions on the subject, or if it has
any It knows full well that to utter
them would bo to brand It as u traitor
to lhe question of better terms and a
willing slave or tho policy that would
sell the country's rights that Its party
might feed at tho public crib.
The   Cranbrook   Herald   waxcB   profane and utters a whine of sickening
cant In the "1 am holier than thou"
vein of the hfstoric Pharisee, as Is
shown  in  tlie following paragraph.
"We are a close reader of tho papers
of Hritish Columbia* aud regret to say
that up to the present time not one
Conservative paper of this province
has ever mentioned the damnable conspiracy entered into by Foster, Hope,
Fowler, et al., to mulct the C. H. it.
and the Foresters' organization out of
thousands of dollars through lhe influence thut these gentlemen held as
members of parliament. We hope God
can forgive such miserable weaklings
iu the journalistic Hue, but If He can
lie  will  do  more  than   the   people."
We referred once before to the howl
that was being raised by the Liberal
organs over the actions of Fowler,
Foster et al., but we promise the Herald to give our porsonul attention to
the matter Just as soon as il will laku
tlie trouble ami pains necessary lo explain Hie Oliver laud deal, which wo
treat iu this issue.
When the Herald draws the name of
the Deity inlo its columns in llle way
it does it is nothing if not blasphemous.
Wu wonder if the uctiuns ot the Herald are tu be Included in the niautle
of charily and forgiveness that tho
Deiiy is suiveillugly asked to throw
over the press? If so, there was pro*
photic lustanct or necessary Inspiration in tlie utterances of tlie poet who
wrotu the hymn beginning
"There's a wideness in God's mercy
Like the wideness of the sea."
The local organ of the grit machine
says in its news columns of yesterday
"Mayor Gillett bad received no further intimation regarding llie contract
for the new courthouse up to a late
hour last night, other than the information givon him on Friday bv W.
W. Haer."
In order to put several people in
their right place in this community
Tbe Daily Canadian states that W. W.
Baer did not tell Mayor Gillett on Friday or any other day that tbe contract
for tho new courthouse had been
Awarded to Mayor Gillett. if Mayor
Gillett says so he utters what he
knows to be a falsehood. If tlie morning paper chooses to repeat that statement after the denial made by Tho
Canadian on Saturday, unless it is authorized to do bo by Mayor Gillett, it
plays one of the meanest and most
sneaking tricks that nn ordinarily decent mind can conceive.
It is a question of tbe verucity of
the morning paper or of the mayor and
the gentlemen must settle It between
Editorially the local organ of the
grit  machine says:
"Are we to assume that hereafter it
is to be the policy of the chief commissioner of lands and works to 'authorize' the announcement of lbe letting or the contracts for puollc wo.'ko
in Iho columns of government organs
We reply it ls quite unnecessary to
"assume" nnything of the kind. Nor Is
it necessary to "assume" that the chief
commissioner of lands and works "authorized" the statement made In The
Daily Canadian respecting the a-vhi-d-
ing of the courthouse contract. Hut
it may safely be "assumed" that the
grit organ in Xelson has no longer a
monopoly of news in this upper country. How or by what means The Canadian found out the facts announced
on Friday is a matter of no public
concern, but it is in bad taste for the
morning paper to keep up its snivelling
over the fact that, it got so sadly
scooped, not 12 hours, as usual, hut,
as It would appear this time, hy several days. We aro sorry to have ruffled tho pin feathers of the old monop-
list so rudely, hut a few more like
jars will perhaps shake some sense into tho organ.

Facto for tha Liberal Press to Digeat���
Compariaon of Methoda.
The manner In which Liberal papers
big and little (particularly little) are
neglecting the London by-election dia-
closurea, ln their intense desire to exploit the I. O. F. investigation ln which
the names of certain hard-hitting Conservatives can, with a little skillfully
applied iuuundo, be dragged into publicity fn a disagreeable sort of way,
will repay a little careful examination,
says the Hedley Gazette. The cartoonist of the Toronto World describes il
as a meau Utile trick on tlie part of
Laurier, Fielding aod the Hev. Toronto Globe, in starting u dog fight iu
front of the Indian doctors lepee
while the cabiuu of their pals of the
Cauada Life, Hun Life, Manufacturers'
Life and others are left iu quietude.
This iusurauce commission has, in
Bhepley und Judge McTavish, a pair
ol pliant servile tools who will do the
bidding of the Ottawa bosses as obediently aB any other commission, appointed by the same government during the past len years.
A while ago Ihey had the Canada
Life under investigation but when it
was seen how Pellatt and other pals
of lhe Globe and Sir Wilfrid were juggling with the company's funds through
the medium of mortgages and temporary loans to provide funds for private stock speculations, and the
amount of single loans to Pellatt exceeding by far the ugregatc of 1. O-
F. money or Union Trust money borrowed by the Foster, Fowler, Foi*
syndicate for their C. P. K. land deals,
how quickly Sleuth Shepley dropped
the scent. Now Ihey are wishing lhat
the I. O. F. scent had been dropped
aboul as quickly, for the further this
very fanciful investigation proceeds
the better does the position of Mr. Fowler and his associates appear in comparison with the others of the Cauadu
Life. Fowler was represented as getting tips from the Canadian Northern
as to lhe route to be laken by the
Mann & McKeuzie road, but now Dan
Mann, iu the witness box, laughs ut
the charge aud says that not only was
Mr. Fowler shown the route map but
every newspaper reporter who called
at the company's office; was shown
the same.
An amusing feature of the boomerang character of this I. 0. V. scaudal
is that in order to get a crack at Foster, Fowler and Pope, they have to implicate Justice Boyd of tbe Union
Trust Co., who did such yeoman service for them on other stuffed commissions, and also Peter Ryan, who
fought their battles in Uie Toronto
wards. And now we se6 the mess that
pal Peter bas got himself and them Into in the disclosures coming out of his
land deals with the late Ontario administration.
nut if Foster, Fowler, Pope and their
associates have done the I. O. F. out
of a dollar, why are they not proceeded against? T^ie answer to this is
that there haa been no wrongdoing upon which they cam lay a charge for
prosecution, aud the whole affair Is
to distract public attention from the
London by-election scnndals In which
a minister of tne crown figures ln a
very unenviable light.
When tho Foresters' affair was laid
.before the electors of North Renfrew
side by side with the Saskatchewan
land deals participated in by relatives
of federal ministers, lho answer was
1000 majority for the Conservative
candidate. It Is any wonder that the
Toronto News admits that things look
blue In Ontario for the Ottawa administration?
l-ove Is blind���and there would
probably bo more domestic bliss on tap
