at the Independent meat market,
was arrested this morning at the
Great Northern railway station on
the point of departure on the south
bound train, by Chief Bradshaw
{on a warrant sworn by Frank
Empey, for obtaining goods under
false pretences. It is alleged that
the prisoner, who is now lodged in
the city lockup, had represented
to Mr. Empey that he was ahout
to be employed at P. Burns' and
obtained goods on the strength of
the statement. This, it is deolared,
the prisoner had also done elsewhere.
The goods in question were discovered at the Great Northern

SYMPATHY WITH  MEN
State of  War Evidently
Prevailing in South
Russia.
Vienna, Aug. 17.--A St. Petersburg despatch to The Zeit states
that the riots created a deep impression. It is felt tbat the gov-
eminent has to deal with a vaBt
secret organization, whereof the
present strikers are only the vanguard. The Russian press have
been ordered to publish only official communiques. The sympathy
of the eduoated classes is with the
workmen, as the movement is directed not only for the amelioration
of labor conditions, but also against
the despotio system of government.
Workmen are regarded as pioneers
of political freedom. A Baku despatch states that a rattling rifle
fire renders sleep impossible. At
nights water mains are out off, and
none dare help to extinguish thf
petroleum springs fires, as the
shooting is constant.
LOST— A pair of spectacles in case.

THE PRESS SERVICE.
Intimately bound up with the
press Bervice as desired.i.e ,an imperial association of newspapers of outlaying portions of Greater Britain,
is the government ownership of the
telegraph service. It is nearly two
years ago sinoe the Would drew attention to this phase of the matter
and it is only recently that the
great Canadian journal! are begin
ning to devote their columns to the
the exploiting of this question. Up
till now, however, few have brought
the telegraph service into consideration with the press service desired.
All agree that it is a desideratum to have a service that will connect Canada with the Motherland.
Some others Bee that it is inevitable
that that service will gradually so
inorease as to take in the whole of
the Empire. But the question of
tolls and the important bearing
that they have upon a new
is not oonsideied. The chief objection to the present news service
is that it is badly arranged from a
Canadian point of view. Canada
cares very little whether J. Pierpont Morgan or Yerkes, or Gladys
Deacon or the latest Amerioan
jockey are or are nol a sucoess in
Europe. The country careB muoh
more to know how the preferential
duties are succeeding and what
chance there is for her trade receiv
ing some exclusive privileges in the
old country. Of the one kind of
news the newspaper receive plenty.
Of the other hardly any and when
received is so distorted as to be un-
The only news re
ceived from the biggest market in
the Empire, India, is that the
"vicereine" has a swagger dress or
has instituted a war with some
Simla ladies who do not think that
the Leiter family are the only thing
that ever happened.
But when a private telegraph
oompany goes in cahoots with a
special presB service where is the
Imperial service to get off at? It
will be handioapped from the start.
When a oountry like the United
States is permitted to take the
oream off the profits of the All Red
line between Canada and Australasia it augurs badly for the success of any Imperial Press Agency.
Laurier has done well in starting
this new service, but he will do
better if he begins to consider the
advisability of taking over the
telegraph service of the oountry or
at all events in insisting on an absolute equality of rates between the
Imperial service and that of the
Associated Press.
As the learned judge appears to
have crested precedent in this instance, his reasoning is of a double
interest. He held that a person
who had lived in the United States
for live years, or the period necessary to make naturalization possible, and bad not conquered the
language of the country, did not
have within him the requisite material for citizenship.
In this contention the learned
judge will undoubtedly be supported by publio opinion to a very large
extent. His ruling goes beyond
the law of statutes and phraseology
to tbe great primary principles of
equity and common sense, whicb
should be the bases of all jurisprudence. The natural promptings of
intelligence and proper ambition
should impel the foreigner who
seeks naturalization to master the
language in use in any oountry
whose national sentiment, sooial
and other conditions impress him
so favorably as to induce him to
surrender bis own nationality in
behalf of what he presumably regards aB better.
To beoome a oitizen by naturalization suggests a desire on the
part of the applicant to share in
the responsibilities of the country's
government, and he assuredly cannot do this intelligently while
ignorant of the language in whioh
its polioies are discussed. He
must know the tongue also for
business purposes if for nothing
else, in order to get in touch with
the conditions of the land with
which he is so well satisfied as to
make it his own land.
As a Puget Sound contemporary
Bays in discussing the ruling of the
New York judge here referred to.
"The aliens who come over here to
set up little oommunities of their
Own, moulding their conduct so far
aB possible by old world standards,
are not the sort that are wanted.
A man could not live here five
years and still be ignorant how to
speak English unless also ignorant
of too many other essentials to per
mit of his being a oitizen. It is
impossible, save perhaps to the
student of economies, to appreciate
the constitution while unable to
read it; to know the value of school
without the ability to understand
the text books used, or to vote intelligently uuless familiar with the
output of the public prints. If
there were more such judges as the
one mentioned, there would be one
less problem."
And to much of this British Columbians, with their own intimate
and dearly bought knowledge of
oertain features of the naturalization problem, will say "Hear,
hear." Naturalization reform may
very-well go back to the beginning
of error. It is a mistake to too
greatly simplify the conditions of
acquired   oitizenship.     The   resi
Sunlight Soap will not injure

NATURALIZATION
A naturalization case, says the
Vanoouver World, in which Can
ada and British Columbia more
especially may be said to have a
reflected interest, has just been disposed of in New York, the presiding judge refusing to issue the desired paperB of citizenship to an
applicant unable to answer in English the Bimpl6 question pat to him.

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
[Adopted nt Revelstoke, September 13th, 1902.]
I. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of the party in unit tern of provineiul roads and
trails; the ownership and control of railways
and the development of thc agricultural resources of the province an laid down iu the
platform adopted in October, 1899, which iH as
follows;
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and tho building of provincial trunk
roadn of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in ho far as the circumstances of the provinco will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
does not give the government of the province
control of rates over lines bonused, together
with tho option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in tho development of the agricultural resources of the
province."
^2. That in the meantime aud until the railway policy above set forth can be accomplished, a geueral railway act be passed giving
freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted, in such extensive railway
construction In the United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce^
li. That to encourage the mil.ing luoustrY,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should be
ou the basis of apercentage on the net profits.
i. That tho government ownership of tele
phono systems should bo brought about, as a
first step in the annii-.it ion of public utilities.
fi. That a portion of o*very coal area here
after to be disposed of should be reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if their operation becomes
necessary or advisable.
G. That in the pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
should be taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against tho wasteful de
struction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
the provincetshould persevere in the effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That tho matter of better terms in the
way of subsidy and appropriations for the
province should be vigorously pressed upon the
Dominion government.
9. That the sii ver-lead industries of the province be fostered and encouraged by the imposition of increased customs duties on lead and
lead products imported into Canada, and that
thc Conservative members of the Dominion
House be urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in great loss ana injury both to tho
parties directly concorncd and to tho public,
legislation should be passed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
II, That it is advisable to foster the manufacture of the raw products of the province
within the province as far as practicable by
means of taxation on t ho said raw products.sub-
jeet to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured in British Columbia.

THAT INVASION
Haa Ended In Smoke According to an
English Merchant.
Montreal.Aug. 17.—Henry Chalmers, senior member oi the firm of
John Chalmers & Co., shipbuilders
0! Newcastle-on-Tyne, was in Montreal today and discussed trade
oonditions.touohing on the "Amerioan invasion as follows:
"We have heard during the past
few months that the United States
were sweeping Britain off her commercial feet. The Morgan 00m-
bine was held up as a sign of the
invasion, the influx of United
States goods into the British market was to puBh the home manufacturers to the wall. The term
'United States invasion' was heard
on all sides, but there was very
little alarm felt in commercial
circles. Not muoh is heard of the
Invasion at the present time. It is
a thing of the past, not a mill has
been shutidown, and not a furnace
has been banked, and the prosperity of the manufacturing centres,
suoh as Glasgow, Birmingham,
Leeds and the other northern
towns, has beoome a household
word. There is no trade stagnation. To judge from some of the
cable reports you receive through
the medium of the Now York
papers, Qreat Britain is losing her
grip on the commerce of the world.
That is nonsense, utter nonsense.
It seems to me tbat the time has
oome when Canada should get her
news through British channels, and
not through the United States
correspondents of New York
papers."

Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. e.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of camp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramwa- j and a Ostamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will coHi -bout a m'llion dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining oompanies in Norrh Ame .ica, there a-e several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Pi-incet.-n aud Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being Bold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when theBe competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast they will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to tbe coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to oome through this
townsite whioh is looated in tbe oentre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining-centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls.
Lots for Sale $2 to $ 10 Per Front Foot.    tgents in ITowns """■c-

Alfred C. Garde of the Payne
mine is very confident that the
lead pool will be a grand  success.
"Will it work?" said he recently
in an interview on the coast, "why
it is working now."
It seems that following the
granting of the bonus of 75 centa a
hundred on lead, the smelters determined to gather in the big end
of the bonus themselves. The
bonus is on lead in ore. As the
ore averages about 50 per oent lead,
the bonus of 75 cents a hundred
will mean $7.50 a ton on the ore
mined. Mr. Campbell, of the Hall
Mines smelter, spoke of raising the
freight and treatment rate from
$15 to $19 a ton; taking $4 out of
the $7.50, when the Silver Lead
Mineowners Association told Mr.
Campbell that he was perfeotly free
to raise rates if he ohose, but that
hie Bmelter would be sidetracked,
That put an entirely different face
on the matter and he hastened to
assure them that he had ohanged
Iris plans.   The pool is working.
MORE CONCENTRATION
Experiments Which Have
Been Carried on in
Nelson.
Nelson.Aug. 17—H.E. Haultain,
the well known mining engineer ol
this city,\vhofor several months has
been engaged in ore concentration
experiments along lines based on the
same principles aB the Elmore oil
procesB, is leaving town in a day
or so for a trip through the States
in connection with the process.
Mr. Haultain's experiments have
been backed by a local syndicate.
Until tho Enterprise mine closed
down, the experiments were conducted at the plant there, but for
the last six months they have been
carried on in this city.
Mr. Haultain said in reply to a
frequently put query as to the
progress made with the new process:
"We have praotically oompleted
our concentration nxperiments on a
wide range of ores from British
Columbia, and also from Washington and Ontario. We have
found tbat our process is not applicable to all ores, but with the
majority of the ores tested the results were eminently satisfactory.
Several difficulties and troubles
that arose with the first machine
constructed have been smoothed
out, and we are now satisfied wilh
the details of the process, and of
the apparatus. It is now in a
commercially practicable form,
and works satisfactorily, where ordinary methods fail.
"The procesB is based on the
same fundamental principles as the
Elmore prooeas, but is radically
different in its operation, and in no
way conflicts with their patents.
The experimental plant will still
be kept up and Roy Stovel will
continue with the experiments on
some new ores now coming in. It
is not likely tbat anything will be
done with the process on a commercial soale in British Columbia
just at present, the conditions being hardly ripe for its introduction."
Tha Emporium
A rich strike has been uncovered
on the Emporium, near the Payne.
The claim is owned by the Minnesota Silver company, who will
shortly apply for a crown grant.
Mr. Hiokey will complete assessment work and will probably lease
the property before long. The
Emporium adjoins the Merourry,
is showing up some fine ore, and
three distinct leads have been traced in the locality.

MUCH WORK DOING
Ravlval of Mining In Klmbarlay Country
Nelson, Aug. 17. — J. L.
Parker, of the North Star mine,
Kimberley, who is spending a
few days in the oity, states that
there is considerable aotivity in the
Perry oreek and upper St. Mary's
river country in east Kootenay.
The oompany operating the
placer beds on Perry creek are
rapidly getting things in shape for
a long run,and from all indications
will make a success of their investment. There is not as much development work going on in oonneotion with the smaller properties
as was the case a few years ago,
but on the higher grade propositions there is plenty doing. The
North Star is in excellent shape
and working steadily.
plished on the Betts & Hesperus
group four mileB from Grand Forks
on the west slope of Hardy mountain, within less than thirty days.
There are over 150 tons of ore on
the dump and experimental shipments to the Granby smelter will
be made shortly. Just how wide
the ore body is has not yet been
determined. The capping ooneisls
of decomposed lime and quartzite
impregnated with copper stain and
appears to b3 from seventy five to
one hundred feet wide.

Last year when siphons weren't so cheep
All thought them worth their price;
But now that they have been reduced
They think it awfully nice.
Last year they were three fifty,
But now they're only two;
And I am sure if you're in style
That they will just suit you.
At Goodeve's buy some Sparklets,
Even their price is much less;
And then you'll have your soda
Without a bit of mess.
So buy one and be ready,
