BUSINESS HEN'S VIEWS
B. C. Mining Exchange Would Consider  Defeat of  McBride Calamity
to Province.
Doctvr- LertiFreu my sl ow r*Muf sw/tv.
"THE TREASURE SEEKERS
$9
The British Columbia Mining Exchange In Its January number, now to
hand, says editorially:
"Aside from any partizan politics, the
B. C. Mining Exchange has no hesitation in expressing Its firm conviction
that, from a Hnanclal point of view���
which is Ihe only part of the matter
really worlli discussing, a change of
government at the present time would
have a most disastrous effect upon Hritish Columbia's interests. It is not at all
a question of one group of gentlement
being noble and true and pure in motive, while another group of gentlemen
are ignorant and lazy and debauched
and dishonest. It is simply a fact of
the electorate being being asked, and.
ho far as Ottawa influences are concerned, asked with threats to exchange
the government under which, for The
past three and a half years, the province has enjoyed a degree of prosperity
and development which he has never
before experienced, for a group of absolutely untried and���in an administrative sense���unknown men. The domestic squabbles of the different parties, the accusations and denials of lhe
"Outs" and "Ins," do not effect the
main issue���that of Hritish Columbia's
financial advantage?���in the least llttlo
degree. Why destroy our present prosperity by a change?
"If you own a mlno���or auy other
business��� and you have a good manager, a good foreman, and good employees, and the mine was paying you
handsome dividends, would you dismiss
your staff at the request of a stranger,
of whose knowledge of mining you
knew nothing, for whose Industry and
honesty you had only his own bare
word, and place him in charge of your
mine. Instead of the tried and experienced miners who had made it pay?
Hardly, we fancy. Yet this Is what
the electorate of British Columbia nre
being asked to do. It is to he hoped
that the common sense of our people
will lead the mto reject these counsels
of those self-interested men who
would have them exchange the present
assured prosperity for a few empty
promises."

(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Cranbrook, Feb. 1.���The skirmishers
have fallen back and the main divisions
of the three armies In the field an*
moving forward to a conflict at tht.'
polls tomorrow which will be grandly
notable in the history of Canada. British Columbia is in a battle with the
Ottawa octopus, which has tried almost unsuccessfully to strangle Eastern Canada and is now seeking to push
a tentacle into this province in the in
terest of the Grand Trunk Pacific We
may think that this election is of
merely local Interest, but the eyes of
all Canada are now on the struggle.
Money has been poured oul like water
but Ottawa will be defeated as surely
as a bet of $500 to $100 offered hy Peter Lund the other evening thai, the
government would he sustained, fouud
not the semblance of a taker. It is
now conceded that. McBride will surely
be returned to power With more power
to his elbow, and that .1. A. Harvey,
will defeat Dr. King. Money talks.
With some people, betting Is the real
touchstone in all speculative matters,
politics not excepted. For the information of such as gauge matters by this
standard, it may be said that .lames
Hates took a stroll around the city this
morning with a roll tbat was high
enough to tempt the cupidity of the
Liberals If they had the courage of
their pretended convictions. The fol"
lowing bets were offered with the appended results.
$300 to $200 the Conservatives win
one seat in Victoria.   No takers.
$300 to $200 we win two seats In
Victoria.    No takers.
Even money Mclnnes is defeated. No
takers,
$100 to $50 Harvey wins.    No takers.
$500 to $100 the government  Is sustained.   No lakers.
As a mark of respect for Mr. King
In his bereavement, the Liberals cancelled their meeting of Wednesday nnd
the Conservatives nlso called off their
meeting arranged for this evening. The
Labor party, howevor, held their ad-
tlsed meeting In their committee rooms
last night, nnd there the fine old crust
ed bogey of the unholy alliance between the Conservatives and the Socialist party got a jolt from which it is
not likeiy to recover. An affidavit
signed by George Casey, of Rossland,
and witnessed -by W. J. Nelson, was
read to the meeting. The document
proved that J. R. Morrison and Kenneth Martin were admitted members of
the Socialist party of Canada, lodge 25,
of the city of Rossland, on the 28th of
August, 1906, and November 25, 1906,
respectively. 1*. also appeared from
the affidavit that prior to their admission as members of the Socialist party
they agreed to enter into no relations
with any political organization. In the
face of that pledge these double-faced
traitors are now chairman and secretary respectively of the Liberal Association, and doing their worst in the Interests of J. A. Macdonald. That is
another of those touches of deliberate
treachery which makes the name of
Liberalism a stench and an abomination. The action itf Martin and Morrison is worthy o"i the party that can
mark its turnings hy the skeletons of
its one-time supporters, whom it destroyed the moment their usefulness
was sped. There are men ln Cranbrook marked so plainly for the same
fau- that one can read their doom in
their haunted eyes. Even they in their
hour of desperate travail have not now
the courage to dare hint of the unholy
alliance of that damnatory affidavit.

(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Slocan, Feb. 1.���The meeting held
here last night ln the interest of William Hunter surpassed all records for
Slocan Cily In point of numbers, and
was undoubtedly In favor of the Conservative candidate.
T. McNelsh presided and called first
on Mr. Hunter, who spoke for only ten
minutes, humorously touching on local
matters, and declaring his conviction
that the McBride government is the
best the province has ever had.
A. B. Docksteader took even loss
time. He merely formally appealed for
support as representing the Liberal op.
position.
W. Davidson took more than his allotted time, reciting the familiar monologue about wage slaves, soulless corporations and the good time coming.
F. J. Deane went over the list of Liberal scandals and eulogized the opposition.
II. M. Macdonald, in a fluent and
closely-reasoned address of about an
hour's duration, appealed to the Sloean to support the government, whose
administration had resulted in the re-
turn of prosperity to the mining industry. He ridiculed the various attempts
of tho Liberals to prove wild charges
of corruption, demonstrated the confidence of the outside world in the present government, and warned his hearers of the danger of Grand Trunk Pacific rule if Liberals were returned.
He pleasantly remarked that Mr.
Docksteader's return would mean two
members for Nelson. He closed with
a testimonial to the universal esteem
in which William Hunter Is held and
urged all to Miport him.
Indications trom nil over tho riding
today are that Mr. Hunter will have a
good majority over Davidson, wltb
Docksteader nowhere.
ho was decidedly Interesting and entertaining. He claimed the credit of being instrumental ln promoting many enterprises in Nelson, such as the waterworks and electric light, and asserted
that every building he had constructed
in NelBon was now occupied and payi.
ing tuxes. Mr. Houston then returned
to the political situation and scored
both of the old parties for what he
deemed errors ot omiBsion and commission. Throughout his address was humorous and entertaining and he received applause from his friends from
Nelson who ware present.
W. A. Macdonald, K. C, representing
J. H. Schofleld, defended the record of
the government and praised especially
its restoration of provincial credit and
the general financial administration. He
dismissed the various Liberal attempts
to fasten charges of dishonesty upon
different members of the government,
and then gave his attention for a while
to the record of the new Liberal leader, W. W. B. Mclnnes.
Mr. Macdonald was occasionally interrupted by a few Liberals from the
city, evidently there for that purpose.
He replied to them all courteously and
produced authorities for every count of
his Indictment against the ex-governor
of the Yukon, quoting the Toronto
Qlobe, Smith Curtis' letter, and the
resolutions of the Yukon Liberal Association.
Mr. Macdonald throughout his speech
referred again and again to the question of taxation, showing that the government took the best method of restoring the credit of the province. His
reference to the policy of Mr. Macdonald and the Liberal party was heartily
applauded. He quoted froip The Dally
News of a month ago, showing that
even that hidebound Liberal paper
charged the provincial Liberal leader
as being negative ln character and
lacking ln the ability to construct a
pol'cy. Mr. Macdonald's remarks
trought forth cheers.
Williams Ebbs followed, speaking
chiefly against Socialism.
J. Fred Hume then stated his case.
He claimed full credit for the eight
hour mining law, and charged Mr.
���Schofleld with opposition to the eight
hour smelter bill.
This was challenged by Harry
Wright, who took the platform and
br.efly but effectively refuted the
,iarge by reading the affidavit of J.
D. Anderson that Mr. Schofield's name
as signed as mayor without any au
t only from him. Mr. Wright also re-
���i.ed to ihe luB.nuiition made that employees of the C. P. R. were bound to
ol.s.w the b.ddlng of thai co.p..ra.ion.
in- isc.i uded ihat the simple tact of
a man bel.ig employed by the C. P. R.
should not disqualify him for political
preferment, any more than if the man
w- rked lor Mr. Hume. Employees of
the C. P. R. were free men and Uie Liberal party could not deprive them of
their rights.
Some one tn the audience asked,
"Why doesn't Schofleld resign?" and
Mr. Wright promptly replied, "He has
resigned."
On leaving Uie platform Mr. Wright
was loudly applauded for his defence
or Mr. Schofleld.
Continuing, Mr. Hume attacked the
government on general lines, and surprised nearly all his hearers by con- '
lulling with: "If you don't vote for me,
ion't vote for Schofleld, but vote for
John Houston."
Mr. Houston closed the meeting with
another compliment to Mr. Hume and
a heated defence of W. W. B. Mclnnes.

New Westminster, Feb. 1.
J. Kirkpatrick, Nelson, B. 0.1
On this, the closing day ot the
great campaign, I hasten to send
assurances ot    the great victory
thai awaits us tomorrow.   I have
before me a report   from   every
constituency in British Columbia,
which proves conclusively that as
the fight lias proceeded our cause
has grown stronger, and now, on
the eve of election day, with the
Conservatives of the province pre-
senting   an   unbrolcen front, and
with the support of thousands of
Liberals, the  return  of the gov
eminent by a largo majority ls no
longer   questioned.     "Hands   off
llrltlsh   Columbia."       "Let   well
enough alone."
R. McBRIDE.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, B. O, Jan. 31.���Quite the
most sensational feature of the closing
hours of tha campaign la the announcement of yesterday, now confirmed, that
Premier McBride wag approached by
emissaries of the Orand Trunk Pacific
railway and asked to consent to certain
land concessions, the promise being
made that as a quid-pro-quo, Liberal
candidates would drop out in certain
constituencies, guaranteeing absolute
success to the government at the elec
tlons.
The premier, as previously stated,
spurned the overture, preferring to
stand or fall on his position as advocating a measure of justice for British
Columbia, regardless of corporate Influence.
Nothing ln the  history  of  political
campaigns In British Columbia has been
so dramatic as thla eleventh-hour confession of defeat on the part of the liberals, who are thrown Into an absolute panic hy its publication.   It ts a
statement of absolute fact that liberals
a',  the   coast   have   thrown up their
bands; they admit ln the most matter
of fact way that there is now no longer
any doubt that the government will b -
sustained.   Ten   thousand   dollars   1

be endorsed and not a dol'a:* Is boin

lold that taev realised they were delta.
ed.   They b.ameo an on the mismanage
ment ot Macdonald and Mclnnes. in
.alter, they say, on consenting at th
be_est of Laurler to come West and at
tempt to grab British Columbia, snouli
have Insisted upon being given a spe
ciflc message In respect to better termi-
and also an agreement to assist In de
veloping  the  province.    Mclnnes,-    Its
their  opinion, has  proved  a gigantic
lallure.   As one prominent Liberal put
It: "We have lost and we know It; bul
tbe Liberal party will be rehabilitated
As a result ot this fool-play ln British
Columbia  by  our  party  leaders,  you
will see the Ottawa government send
out an organiser at a big salary who
wl'l put matters right.   The Conservatives are ln for another four years, bul
as long as Sir Wilfrid Laurler lives, the
Liberals will hold the federal government.   We have made a bungle ot It
this time; but we will do better; Mclnnes and Macdonald and all the rest of.
the Incompetents must go."
As Indicating the government will
be certainly victorious It may be men-
tloned that today, members of the government, received congratulatory messages trom prominent Investors ln
England, congratulating them on assurance which had been received from
banking sources that the government
would be sustained.
VICTORIA WILL RETURN FOUR.
A well-attended meeting was held ln
Jiscowicz' hall, Fairview, last evening in tho Interest of Fred Hume. All
the candidates wore represented and
tho meeting could not be said to decisively favor any one.
J. A. Dewar took the chair Bhortly
alter 8:30 and called on A. M. Johnson.
who briefly and generally attacked tho
whole policy and record of tho McBride
government.
Ho was followed by John Houston,
who spoke at groat length, and waa
,;lvon u patient hearing. He went In
���.rcat detail into thc history of British
Columbia governments for many yenrB
siast, and finally came down to tbe is-
suea of the present campaign. His
inlet constructive plank was the advo-
ucy of the immediate surveying of all
nndB In the province available for set-
lenient.
Mr. Houston then drifted Into reminiscent channels, and told many things
'concerning tlle early history of Nelson
nnd the Kootensys.   Along these lines
One Wis. Liberal.
"I have all my available capital up
on the election already," said a good
Liberal last night.
"You're foolish; you'll lose," wae the
comment.
"Oh, no; I can't lose. I'm betting
on Conservatives," said one wise Liberal.

Victoria, Feb. 1.���The Conservative
comlttee rooms have been crowded
since early morning, and It Is now possible to speak as to the result with
some degree of Intelligence. It Is certain that the vote polled tomorrow will
be an unusually large one, and lt ll
equally certain that the four Conservative candidates will be elected by
very large majorities. One bet has
been made that one of the Liberal candidates will lose his deposit. Despatches trom all over the province Indicate at least 26 seats for the government.

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Vancouver, Feb. 1.���As the chairman
of the Conservative campaign committee remarked this morning: "Everything Is now over but the shouting."
In the earlier stages of the campaign
the Liberals professed the belief that
they would elect Messrs. Neelands and
McLennan, but their final reports have
deprived them of even this note. Van

" By one word wu are sometimes Judged to be
win and by oue word sotnellmes judged to be
foollflh. Let us therefore be careful what we
siy."���Confucius,
LAST WORDS.
Tomorrow the electors of Hritish Columbia will make a very important decision,
Some���probably the great majority-
have already decided how they will
vote, most of them, we believe, accord*
ine to hones! conviction, or to loyalty
to old party associations, which is entitled to all respect, on whichever side
it i_ displayed.
Hilt the castiiiK vole in every general
election ia in the hands of the neutrals,
who vote according to unprejudiced
judgment on the issues ol' each campaign. It lies with them now to decide
whether the party which has administered the affairs of ihis province for
the past three years shall he told to
continue its good work, or he replaced
by a group of men wiih no administrative experience.
Men who have acquired the habit of
independent judgment will not suffer
that judgment to be warped by petty
and unfounded charges or even a ser* .a
of t hem.
Whether James Anderson and others
made excessive profits as agents in the
transfer of Kaien Island lands, whether
the government might legally have refused to give to tho C. P. K. company
lands granted to them in 18!��_t, whether N. F. Mackay was offered stock by
a syndicate as an attempt to secure
the favor of R. F. Green, are questions
that may seriously affect the honor of
individuals. They are nol  public issues.
The only question that need or should
be seriously considered is: Which party
is likely to prove Uie more honest and
able in the administration of the affairs of the province?
On the score of ability there is little
Opportunity for comparison. The present government has brought order out
of chaos, and prosperity from the edge
of bankruptcy. That is the testimony
nol only of every business interest In
the province, Irrespective of politics,
including mine owners and managers,
smelter men, mill owners, merchants
and bankers, it is the unbiassed and
absolutely unanimous judgment of the
capitalists of Toronto and Montreal, of
New York, and of London, feely and repeatedly expressed.
The capacity of the opposition can be
judged only hy its utter failure to perform any one of the legitimate, constitutional functions of an opposition.
On the score of honesty the disparity
is, ff possible, even greater.
The cabinet consists at present of
H. McBride, R. T. Tatlow, F. L. Carter-
Cotton, F. J. Fulton and W. Manson.
Against not one of those men Eras an
imputation of dishonesty been made
even during a campaign that will be
remembered in the political annals of
Canada as "the slander campaign,"
On the other hand, who are the Liberal leaders? .1. A. Macdonald is, we
believe, personally honest and honorable. Hut associated with him���against
his will, we hope, for his credit's sake
���are W. W. H. Mclnnes and Alex. Henderson. Mclnnes has been denounced
by his own political associates, ln Mritish Columbia. In the Yukon, and in
Eastern Canada, in terms that have
never boen applied to any other man
in Canadian public life.
Alex. Henderson's short political career, from 1898 to 1900, is notable only
for the most, shameless political treachery in the history of the West.
Hut it is not only by their past known
misdeeds that these men are condemned. They are known to be engaged in this campaign as the servants
of the Ottawa machine, whose avowed
object is to bring all Canada under its
control, and which is itself the tool of
the Grand Trunk Pacific syndicate,
which, already guaranteed enormous
profits by the Dominion government,
is seeking to "hold up" all the provinces as well for further plunder.
It did not need the disclosures reported from Victoria and Vancouver last
night, startling and staggering as they
are, to convince the people of British
FINAL REVISED LIST OF PROVINCIAL CANDIDATES
Probably no elector In llrlllsh Columbia Is half no much Interested In the
result of tomorrow's elections us F. W.
Morse, of the Grand Trunk Pacific syndicate. His substantial interest In the
result Is the total value of the following concessions refused hy the McHrlde
government, and certain to be granted
by a Uberal government, If one could
be returned:
1. Right of way, not exceeding 1100
feet, across crown lands, for main and
branch lines, excepting where additional widths are required, for sidings, stations, sheds, wharves, warehouses, embankments, cuts, bridges, culverts,
drains, and other works and approaches thereto.
2. Fifteen thousand acres of land for
each mile of main and branch line to
be constructed In the province of Brit
ish Columbia.
3. Exemption from taxation for 30
years from completion of said railway
of equipment, stations and station
grounds, workshops, buildings, yards,
rolling stock, appliances, and other
property required and used for the construction, equipment and working of
the said line of railway, and all personal property owned or possessed by
the company, also capital stock of the
company.
4. The railway company to have tho
privilege to take from any public lands
adjacent to or near the line of said railway or branches all stone, timber or
gravel, or other material necessary or
useful for construction of the railway,
and also, where necessary, to fill ln lip-
on any public lands.
6. In case townsites are afterwards
created on any of the lands granted,
the provisions of the Laud Act (section 32) are not to apply. This provision not to apply to the lands on which
the permanent western townsite Is located.
Smith Curtis and .1. Fred Hume are
opposed to any aid to railway construction in any form. J. A. Macdonald
vaguely admits the possible expediency
of subsidies, but Is careful to specify
no form. Meanwhile, the last official
Liberal platform declares for aid, not
in land but In cash, to secure the immediate construction of 1700 miles of
railway. The fact of the matter is that
thc official platform was framed to
suit what seemed to be popular opinion
at the time; J. Fred Hume spoke without thinking; Smith Curtis has corporations on the brain, and J. A. Macdonald
know-B nothing about railways, commerce or Industry at all. Only one
hungry Liberal has a definite railway
policy. W. W. B. Mclnnes Is haunted
by no doubts. He knows exactly what
goods he must deliver to earn the
means of "drunkenness and Immorality" for the rest of his life.

claims the credit of Introductnng the
eight-hour law for miners. The state-
mem of A. H. MacNeill. K. C. that the
measure wus introduced by James Mar-
On, M. L. A. for Kossland from 1898
to 1900, can easily he verified hy thu
records of thc house.
Let us join in hoping that within a
few years the Liberal party of Hritish
Columbia will have purged itself of
traitors, liars and slanderers; will have
attracted to its standard a few men of
character and ability, and he prepared
to perform decently and efficiently tho
duties devolving upon an opposition by
the British Constitution.
The amazing appeal of J. Fred Hume
in Fairview last night, "If you don't
vote for rae, vote for John Houston,''
may enlighten some Liberals as to the
honesty of their local organ, which
spent more than a fortnight, insinuating that the Independent candidate in
Ymir was induced to run by Conservatives.
We are reluctant to have to record
that J* Fred Hume, in his address to
the Fairview electors last night, repeated a charge against his Conservative opponent which had already heen
disproved. We might suggest that Mr.
Schofield's re-election as mayor of Trail
for the fifth consecutive year, and hy
acclamation, was sufficient proof that
he had not antagonized smelter employees, who constitute a very largo,
part of the total Trail electorate. The\
ortly explanation of Mir. Hume's conduct that occurs to us is that he has
been too busy to read any news for
some .time, and that the channel
through which he seeks his news has
long heen dry.
We haven't time to discuss in capital
letters the question whether or not Mr*.
Green's suggestion of Mr. Mack ay's
name to Sir A. P, Caron as a possible
recipient of stock constituted a vicarious acceptance of it. We move lhat
the question 1k�� referred to a juvenile
debating society.
The Ottawa machine, through its
agents at the coast, has acknowledged
its responsibility for Willie Mclnnes
and Alex. Henderson. It was a humiliating confession even for the machine.
We are still waiting patiently for any
suggestion that the Liberals have any
policy other than persistent slandering
of their opponents.
LAND NOTICES.
The Daily News is a little unfortu-*-
nate ln its efforts at sarcasm. On
Wednesday evening, when a public
meeting had to be cancelled because
of the non-arrival of Martin Burrell,
W. A. Macdonald was in Kast Kootenay,
R. S. Lennie at Trail, R. M. Macdonald
at Nakusp, and R. \V. Hannington in
bed with la grippe. On two occasions,
though its whole membership was
available, the opposition post]K)ned
meetings because Willie Mclnnes failed
to connect.
By a reaarrangement of periods tbat
The Daily News appears to have overlooked, our friend Jack Hampson, writing from Alaska to wish his friend
Fred Hume success, might be misunderstood. After mentioning what he
considers the possibilities of "graft" In
Kootenay, he says, "This country is
full of grafters. I am doing very well,
yet I would rather be In the Kootenay
country."
Wo would not grudge any man credit
that is justly his due, but surely Mr.
Hume makes a large draft on the _..*-*���

Churleslon, W. Vn., Jan. 31.���The dismembered bodies of at least 30 of the
80 or more victims .of Tuesday's disaster In the Stewart mine near Thurmond were found when the rescuing
party reached the mine level laBt evening. Becausse of u broken cage they
were removed with a bucket 'that was
at      first     used. Instant      death
appears to have overcome all tho miners and a thorough Investigation will
be necessary to learn the exact cause
of the disaster. Thut none of the 90
men who were in the mine when the
disaster occurred escaped death, now
seems certain and the rescuing parties
are looking for moro bodies as thoy
advance. Sixty coffins have arrived
and an order for 26 more has been
given by the mining company. The
rescuing party contrived to work
through the night, but hte taking out of
the bodies from the mine was delayed
until the wrecked cage can be repaired

New York, Jan. 31.���A Paris despatch
to the Times says that Jacob H. Schiff,
of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., New York, has
grven an Interview to the New York correspondent of a Paris paper which pub-
Used It yesterday. Mr. Schiff said ln
part;
"The conditions in which we find
ourselves at present appear much mic-
understood .particularly in Europe. It
Is a fact that we are suffering from au
excess of prosperity which is simply
overwhelming ub. Our industries can
not find labor with which to fill the
orders pouring upon them. Our railroads are ln need of equipment and additional facilities to handle the Immense
business of the country and the banks
can furnish only a part of the capital
with which to do the unprecedented
commerce of the country. On the whole
the situation Is neither unhealthy nor
serious."

(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand ForkB, Jan. 31.���Superintendent A. W. B. Hodges, of the Grenby
smelter, in referring to the working of
the big reduction works, Is reported to
have said, "The copper production of
the Granby company for 1906 was 19,-
779,000 pounds. This is considerably
short of what we should have produced,
as, during the months of October, November and December our tonnage of
ore smelted was cut away down on account of the coal strike of the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal company, and although
this strike was settled In December it
was of such a long duration that a great
many of the" coal miners went away,
and they are not able to give us sufficient coke for our wants, but hope to
do bo very shortly now.
"We have increased our converter
plant by another converter stand, having three now, and it gives us a con-
berter capacity or 30.000,000 or 35,000,-
000 pounds per year. We have eight
blast furnaces nnd two of them are
latge ones, thnt is, they are 48 inches
by 208 Inches long. We huve three of
the six furnaces now enlarged, and
hope to have the other three enlarged
during February, which will make our
dnllv capacity about 3300 tons, or about
1,000,000 tons per year, which will give
ua a copper production of from 25,000.-
000 to 35,000,000 pounds iter year. Of
course, with the enlargement of the
furnaces more blowers will be necessary, and we are installing two large
ones, of the Connorsvllle type, each
having a capacity of 30,000 cubic feet
per minute. These blowers will be operated by electric motors. We have
also under erection a steel furnace
building, which we nre just about, completing, which ls about 90 feet wide by
300 feet long, which hns heen built to
replace the old wooden building that
was torn down. At thc mines, while
we have tunnels and shafts sufficient
for mining and crushing 3500 tons per
dav, we have been sinking a new three-
coin pari ment shaft in a cent rally-located position, which will be in operation
In about n month, which will give us
additional capacity for hoisting the ore.

SOCIALIST MEETING.
Laat Blast of Third Party Candidate in
Grand Forks.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Feb. 1.���Several hundred citizens gathered In the oporn
house lust evening to hear Messrs. Wilson and Goepel, the well known Socialist speakers, address the audience on
behalf of the candidature of the Socialist nominee, John Mclnnis.
The best of order prevailed, but to
an onlooker it was readily apparent
thai the rehashing of Socialistic print!
ctpies to Grand Forks people had been
worn threadbare. Neither the Conservative or Liberal candidates were at
this meeting. From the latest report,
this morning lt is [earned that the Conservative ranks are being hourly reinforced by voters from tlle lines of
the Liberal and Socialist parties, tlie
Liberal voters realizing that thev can-
nsst possibly elect Mr. Gregory, will cast
their votes for the Conservative i-nntli-
dlile sooner thnn support a Socialist,
while lhe Soclnllst voters for the very
sunn, reason are supporting the Conservative candidate sooner than a Lib*
eral,
lly adopting this system, Mr. Miller's
majority will likely bo greatly Inon-iis
etl. Advices from Cascade, Carson and
Bannock Oity today Bay that no per.
cent, of the voters In these parts will
vote Conservative. A great victory for
Mr. Miller tomorrow evening Is regarded us a certainty.
