Ki another column we publish the
address of Sir. IV, C. Wells of Palliser
to the electors of the Northern division
of Kast Kootenay.
Koine tew weeks ago Mr. Wells received tlie nomination of a representative
convention called for tho purpose of
selecting a Candida le in opposition to the
present government of Ibis Province and
he has accepted this nomination lu tho
terms sot out in his address published
Mr. Wells is known throughout the
whole of the western country us one of
tho ablest and shrewdest business men
in the west and by careful management
and attention lo his own business affairs
has built up a largo and successful industry at Palliser. lie is also well
versed in and has at all times taken an
active interest iu matters political in the
Province and is a candidate into whose
keeping tho affairs of the Province and
this constituency in .particular might
safely be entrusted.
It is understood that n candidate will
be placed ill the field to suppoot the present government and a mooting is to lie
held at Donald ou Monday next to select
such a candidate.
The name of Mr. AV. G. NeiUon of the
Columbia P.iver Lumber Co. is mentioned as that of the candidate likely to be
chosen ut that mooting and it is reported
tlmt Mr. Neilsort is prepared to accept
such nomliuttion and that ho has in fact
already organized his committee at Donald and has declared himself in the Held
an Independent supporter of the
Thi3 comes as somewhat of u surprise
to some of Mr. Noilsou's friends in (iolden who have all along been led to believe
that be was an out and out supporter of
Mr. Wells. Mr. Neilson may havo some
explanation to offer for his present attitude towards Mr; Wells' candidature and
this explanation 13 earnestly looked for
by somo of his friends in Goldon.
Mr. Neilson left for Windermere this
morning in compauy with Col. Uaker
and rumor has it that a meeting is lo he
lield at Windermere iu Mr. Neilson's

In referring to tha funeral of Mr,
Glitdstono, Gilford, in hia London letter
to tlie New York Tribune, saya: '" It waa
a great state function, ending with all
the simplicity of a vlltago churchyard
funeral; Slowly the group was thinned
out, Whon Mrs. Gladstone wont away
with her two sons the two housea retired
with stately dignity, and the abby was
gradually emptied. England and Parliament had paid their Inst homage to their
greatest citizen,both in spirit ami society
and truth, Precedents were closely
followed in tiie ceremonial ami only ono
new one wan created, this waa the archbishop's prayers and benediction, It
has been tlio traditional custom that
tho dean shall read the entire burial
service in tho abbey without assistance,
Otherwise Gladstone was buried in conformity witli tho oldest customs and
closely in accordance with the usage
followed at the funerals of Pitt and
l'almerston. Even the weird cry of tho
darter King proclaiming the style ami
quality of thu dead and rehearsing the
tho public offices which ho had held,
was not omitted. Strangely enough,
tho last word heard over Gladstone's
gravo^was his connection with tho coni-
mlsslpn to tho Ionian islands, which
attested his sympathy with oppressed
and stHiggling nations, A reference to
precedents in a spirit of conversation
imparted an oM-timu dignity tu tho
unique sorvicc, which was lacking in the
ordinary splendors of a stato ceremony.
What was hotter than all else was the
warmth aud heartiness of the service
and its sympathetic touch with Gladstone's life and character, Spectators
mi every side were deeply moved ami
found relief for their emotions by joining
with one accord in singing the familiar
hymns. Tlie entire assemblage rose
When Mrs. Gladstone took her seat
under tho lantern, Strong men wept
when she knelt beside the grave, and
wi*ile tho Prince of Wales, with courtly
grace, biased her hand as though she
had beon tiie wife of a kine, Gladstone's
unique personality seemed opened and
softened to all hearts. Much of this
sensibility was due to the music, which
was simply glorious. Tlio choir had
been recruited from six churches, and
there was a full orchestra accompaniment
for tho organ, It was music conspicuous
for delicacy, for ila shady and sympathetic quality, and it filled in with everyone's thoughts about Gladstone. The
whole service tended to magnify the
spiritual significance of his life and
death, aud this haa been the marked
tendency throughout England during
tho Inst ten days. England may have
lo wail until another genoraUon before
thero is .i true Ben so of historical pflr-
peotive for estimating aright his public
services and real character, Already
there is a mystical Ghidstono, with
which men's imaginations are conjuring,
hut his faith was no myth, and it is
certain that his death has had much of
tho potency of a national religious
Cabling to tho New York Times on
tlio same subject, Mr, Harold Frederick
says: "Stately and imposing as was
tho funeral of Mr. Gladstone at Westminster abbey, with all its show of
prince.*"', nobles and ambassadors, it was
not such a Spectacle as was that of the
untiring stream of thousands who pourod
through Westminster hall at tho lying in
state mi Thursday and Friday. Such a
gontlino popular tribute of respect, veneration, love and grief, I have never seen
linked to such absolute simplicity of
expression. Men came from alt parts of
England, Ireland ami Scotland, and,
indeed, from different parts of Europe,
to say farewell, and when with simple
reverence they had passed lhe black
platform on which the casket was raised,
their loosened tongues spoke iu all the
dialects of theso Islands. Perhaps thc
most solemn function of all, witnessed
by none hut the Gladstone family and
tho ollicials, was when the casket was
opened shortly after midnight on Thursday to allow the Karl Marshal to verify
with his eyes that it really contained
tho remains of tho dead statesman. I
am told that tho old man's face, seen for
tho last time bv the Duke of Norfolk,
who is responsible to England for this
sacred charge, was more peaceful and
younger looking than it had seemed for
years. At the very last moment a small
gold Armenian cross, a memento of that
nation for which tho great statesman
worked so zealously, was placed by hia
sido. Then all was done. It was a
curious  si'jiit, that  of   an   hour after
stories and historical atmosphere of
poetry and fame. On tbe dingy platform
were tho Karl Marsha] of England and
four heralds in simple modern mourning
dress, there to receive from the hands
of the dead man's sons those remains,
which the Queen and the country had
decreed to honor. There was no Stately
ceremonial such as was suggested by the
old historic names of " Karl Marshals"
and " Heralds "���only an obscure underground railway station ami a few Blraple
clad men peering into the misty dnrk-
ness of n tunnel, nothing of outward
show, apparently nothing of outward
chivalry and romance, thus appeared
the outward eyes, but one of the simply
clad men was tho premier Duke of
England, a pupil and friend of tlutt
oilier Oxford man, Cardinal Newman,
with whom Gladstone's higher life had
been for years so intimately woven, and
who so very heartily drew in more
souses than one to himself."

To the Editor of The .Minmh:
Dear Sir,���Tin. letter of "Sport" in

Movement Towards an Alliance.
The Washington correspondent oi the
Loudon Daily Telegraph says:
" I have just learned from a high
authority in the state department that
most Important preliminary steps towards an Anglo-American alliance have
already been taken. How far these
negotiations, if thoy can yet be called
that, have proceeded, it is not easy to
asecriaiu ; ior naturally strict secrecy is
maintained, hut my information is that
the preliminary suggestions have been
made, and that the subject of such an
alliance is practically before the two
governments In some shape,
"The recent visit* paid by Sir Julian
Paunccfoto to tho state department have
not, it seems, had reference altogether
to tho consideration of negotiations,
According to my authority, the features
nf the proposed alliance now being considered are these: Great Britain is to
recognize the Monroe doctrine, to attempt no increase ol her telrilorial
possessions in the western hemisphere,
and to endorse the American construction of that doctrine. The United States
is to build the Nicaragua canal; Great
Britain is to have Iho use of it in lime of
war. The United State* is to have nil
the territory taken from Spain In thc |
present war, and Great Britain is to
protect thc United States iu the possession of it should it be threatened. The
United Slates is to stand by England in
her policy in China and the Kast; and
nil the. British ports in the East t.i be
opened to the United Stated under the
most favored nation clause."
The following letter hn
hy the secretary of the .
Club and speaks for itself:
Donald, "..('., Muy 30, '08.

! munication a meeting will beheld at tho

Says the Calgary corrcspondut of the
Winnipeg Xor'-Westorliisptmkingofthe
game between Golden and Calgary on
tho'Queen's Birthday: " * ������ * ln
tlie afternoon a Calgary toam was
defeated by one from Golden���3 to 0.
As till exhibition! nf kicking, thu game
was fair, tho object of the plityers seem-
ing to be lo kick the bull before it
bounced twice, but not a bit of decent
dribbling was dom during the match."
This is Ignorance In the extreme. The
correspondent uiust have been visiting
during this game, probnhly the Calgary
brewery, two miles distant. As a
matter of fact he is one iu OuO to express
such ignorance, for there were fully that
many peoplo ou the grounds, and every
one nf them admired tlio pretty pa.*s
work and dribbling, particularly on the
Golden team. Heforrlng to tho next
game, that between Golden aud High
Hiver, lie says in part: "Tho High
River boys defeated Golden 1 to 0. As
usual there was a protest. W'lij a team
cannot take a licking like luunnoonu
knows, bill in Calgary the referee has
little to say in ti.e game." For thu
further enlightenment ol ihai ignorant
oorresnonilent, who apparently knows
as much sbout *.i football game as a mud
turtle knows about knee-breed.is, nn
| might say that lhe Golden team wus nut
beaten by the High Rivor hnys, but by
tho referee, who had "littlo to say in
the game." We would advise Ibat
correspondent to quit the newspaper
business imiuediatelv, introduce liimself
to the roferee, present htm with a rub
book, which will till him how ranch he
really ought to snv, and then take a

nnd Uu' Stickeen liuve liver boats run,
and a number of stem-wheel boats arc
going lo run up tn Glenora, where there
is going to bo Another town. Wrangel

The houses and, shops on the other side
ol thc street are biiill on the land, and

pass any person, unless you lean lo tho

Best Wishes From John Bull.
You've loosed the dogs of war, lad,
And sworn the end shall be
Of bondage on your borders,
And that Cuba shall lie free.
And though I'm "standing by,"
My heart's a-bonting high,
Ti! see my kith and kin
To battle marching in.

And I wish you best of luck,
Hero's your health, lad���tako a pull,
With best wishes from John Hull!
And though I'm standing neutral,
Witli no cause to join tlm fray,
I'll back you witli good wishes,
And I'll see you got fair play.
I must keep to neutral laws,
Hut I'll give yon my applause,
And should bad hick bolides,
Maybe something mure beside.
For who've bettor right to bo
Cheek by jowl than you add?
Hero's your health, lad���take a pull,

Your ancestors ami mine, lad,
Throe hundred years ago,
Did battle for Old ISngland,
When she fought the Spanish foe,
And King Phiflp'B great Armada

Witli thumbscrews stowed aboard,
Fop the glory of the Lord.

With best wishes from John Bull!
Why we should no; be friends, lad,
I could never understand,
It's evil tongues, believe me,
That estrange you from my laud.
From the Pilgrim Father's sprung,
Your speech is England's tongue,
And though proud in power and pelf,
You've sut up foe yoursel,
1 never can forget
You're a blood relation yet.
Here's your health, lad���take a pull,
With best wishes from John Dull!
It's tho stranger in your borders,

That stieks to spoil our friendship
And lo separate our hearts.

An Inoxhaustlble Cold Mine.
Al liist n t'oU mi"*- Im** l>'*on dlscovar
oil which is iirnctimlly Inexhaustible,
nml out ot wlii.'li it would bu possible to Inshion the Alps in solid gold
und yet leave enough to p*'v the nallonul
dobta ot the world u-iiiny thousands of
times over.
Work Iiiih been commenced on a small
bill encouraging scale on IMr wonderful
mine by a company bearing tho modest
find mislondlng- namo ol the "Electrolytic Marine Salts Company, of Boston."
This wonderful mine i.-i none other
titan tbe sea, which contains one grain
of pure gold in every ton of ils salt
waters; and the company lias been
formed to rob the noil ol iis myriads ol
grains of gold.
The lirst experiments are being tried
at North l.ubce, in Maine. A sail-water
lagoon, four acres in area, and 9ft. in
depth, has been made to imprison sea
water at the rist of every tide. When
the tide recedes the imprisoned water is
allowed to follow it through a sluice-way
in which 114 accumulators have been
erected, As the watoi Hows through
these accumulators it is acted on by
electricity and chemicals, which liberates
the gold and retains it, while allowing
the water to escape. Thus each tide
brings ils burden of gold and deposits it
for use in the world's markets.
As each accumulator, which works
automatically, costs less than Is. a day,
while it yields in gold at the rale of 5s,,
it is clear that there is an immense margin fur profit, amounting to about .C7,000
a year on lhe 11*1 accumulators. As the
supply of water is unlimited, there is no
reason why the sea should not be robbed
ol Its gold to tho time of �� 100,000.000 a

W. C. Wells' Address to
tho Electors of this
*1'0TilM ELECT!
lillilXil   OF
RS 01* mi: NORTH
My nomination aa an Opposition Can-
.li.Into in tlio approaching General F.lcc-
li.ui (or our Legislature, rails mi mo tn
state to you briefly, tlio course, wlilch in
my opinion, 1 should take il elected as
your Representative.
So fur as 1 have lieen able to measure
tlie feeling of this Constituency, it is
one of disappointment in the administration of our Provincial affairs. In tiie
present contest I am glad to say, we are
not so divided on party lines, as to debar
us from tailing our choice of men
throughout the Province for the ensuing
parliamentary term, anil il is to he hoped
that an Independent effort will be made
in this direction. Holding tiie opinion,
as I do, that t'.ic reeoid.of the present
Government, in the disposal of public
lauds, and tlieir administration of tlio
Provincial finances, not having been
such as to command my support, it is
my plain duty, for the present, to claim
your suffrages as an Opposition Candidate. Tin's docs not necessarily mean
that I must place myself in such anta
g'liiisin to any administration, as to
defeat what slioukl be my primary object
as a Representative, namely, the inter*
cut of my own Constituency.
.Nor does it mean that I am in full
alliance witli tbo Opposition party as it
has stood before the Legislature during
tlie past four years, For this reason, if
no other, I would ask at the hands of my
constituents, if elected, a free indulgence
of my own judgment as to the course I
should adopt in this particular respect.
I look for at least a reconstruction as the
result of the general election, and that
wo may have an administration fully
meeting the demands of our rising
Tbe large appropriation of f*-5,O3O,000
under the recent Public Work* Loan
Amendment Act, while indicating a
generous tendency in the disposal of
public funds, cannot meet the approval
of interior constituencies. We are interested in something more than build-
in;: up our terminal cltios, and the
exclusive welfare of districts Immediately
tributary to them. It will therefore, he
my first contention that substantial
justico should bo given to the eastern
portion of this Province, as compensation for the enormous appropriation
made directly, 1 consider, in the interest
of Coast constituencies, for which we too
have lo bear our share of the burthen,
In this connection, 1 may say that the
terms subsidising tbe Teslin Lake Kail-
way have my approval as a legitimate
business train-action, apart (rum other
considerations, and which are: First,
Whether there is an urgent necessity to
build, at present, the southern portion
of this line; and secondly, whether wu
have not been too precipitate in snatching from tho Dominion Government, a
responsibility whicli rightly belongs to it,
in the interest of eastern provinces, moie
than to Uritish Columbia, We have,
within ourselves, sufficiently attractive
features in our vast mineral resources, to
fully warrant tbe Investment of capital
and tlie Influx of population, or in oilier
words, we have ourown affairs, to whicli
it might be better, nt present, that we
give our undivided consideration, I
incin by this that, being so wholly dependent as wo are upon the opening up
and energetic development of our mines,
the further construction of roads, and
increased facilities of interior transportation, become.*! an imperative necessity.
To this I will urge the consideration of
tho Government, and trust that in justice to this, the extreme eastern constituency of the Province, further appropriation will bo now made, aud that we
may have, at least, what fairly belongs
to u.;.
.My election at your hands, I would
accept as a mark of confidence and
trust, sufficient to detormine me in
guarding faithfully the position in which
you shall have placed me us your Representative. In my appreciation of this
trust, and an earnest, endeavour to serve
your interests, I sincerely hope that it
will not bo expected that I am to defeat,
or risk tho opportunity given me, by
such a thankless allegiance to party
measures ns might thwart what 1 consider my imperative duty towards developing the material resources of the
North Hiding of Kast Kootenay.
Anticipating and thanking you for
your support,
I am at your service,
