did it not notice the inconsistency of
the latter part of the Vernon letter re
Mr. Bostoek and high wages. It
complains that he does not pay hit
farm hands sufficient wages, and to
end up with he says: There are men
who would be glad to work for a reasonable wage in the Yale and Cariboo

Parliament is close at hand, the nomination on the 16th, election on 23rd

Those who have followed tbe course of
Mr. Bostock  since he began his cam.
paign in  this constituency more than,
a  year  ago  will have had one thing,
strongly impressed on them,���that is,
the uuswerving  industry with which
tbe canvass has been prosecuted.     He,
is a voung man, strong in health, and
unflagging in his tenacity of  purpose.
He has gone over the  whole of this,
immense constiteuncy, to some widely
separated  parts  of  It several times,,
and he has  been   assiduous in the acquisition of information on all manner
of subjects of interest and importance,
to the residents in the various sections.
He has lived in Yale only a short time,
compared with those to whom the description   "old timers" is properly applicable, yet it Is questionable whether
there is a man  in the  district to-day
who is better  known to the people or
whose knowledge is greater regarding
their varied interests.     He lias made
these subjects his  study, and the people have not been slow to recognise tho
fact.     He has sought to prepare himself so as to be of the best service possible iu the  representative capacity to
which he aspires.    This seems at present   lo  be  the  ambition  of his life.
There  are  very   few   who   have the
means coupled   with the desire to gratify  an ambition cf  that  kind, ���but
Mr liostock is one of them.   He seeks

Timlin are few countries that can
show such specimens oro as we see
almost every day brought in from East
Kootenay, and when I say this I speak
by the book, mind you. If some of
the ores that are constantly being received in Golden were found in Color
ado and other parts uf the States,
people would go wild over the.n, and
here we sit, still and cannot get any
person even interested enough to look
at them. There has been brought in
from the mountains recently some of
as fine specimens of different mineral
as can be found in any part of the
world. Now whether there is any
large quantities of such oro is of course
a question open to do.ibt until it has
been proved either way. But nothing
on eurth has yet been shown to prove
that there is no large quantities, and
the odds are decidedly iu favor of tlie
lar���'-j. quantity.
Mr. McNamara, a mining expert of
considerable note in the States, says
without any hesitation that we have
as good surface specimens us be has
seen uny where in the whole course of
his mining career. I am however almost tired of talking ou this subject,
in the first place it appears like blowing our own trumpet, but look you
how West Kootenay has attracted
attention by those tactics and nothing
else; and again people will not listen
to talk relative to East Kootenay.
"Yon know it has a smelter and not
s ifficient ore to ever blow her In. The
country is no good or 'N.G.' if you
like it better," and this is the pass
word to West Kootenay. I must say
the smelter is a great injury to us as
it now stands. In fact it's a disgrace
to the community, and it would be
conferring a benefit on us if it could
he removed if there is no possibility of
running il, and if there is, see to it
and run it. The smelter is the best
thing we could possibly have if it
were only running and otherwise it's
a monument of our district's death.
And why this death that's what I
want to come at, and that's what I
cannot answer. Al! that I can say is
that the country is full of valuable
minerals and the first coiner has his
There are, however, at present
some signs of coming activity seen in
our midst, some of the more practical

overdone, so lo speak. Tlie price
which rules there for prospects, nol a
thousandth part the like of ours, are
very exorbitant, and far too high to
be entertained by a practical man.
They may do for the company promoters to speculate on, but not to
work. It's lhe speculator that makes
the boom, gei.erally any way.
Snne time ago I was taken sick
witb a cramp in the stomach, followed
by diarrhoea. I took a couple of doses
of Chamberlain's folic, Cholera and

medicine  in  the  market for all such
'lhat thu Liberals ure going to sweep
the country  from   ocean to ocean, on
the 23rd inst., is now generally admitted by their opponents.   Tlie fact that
thousands  ot   upright Conservatives
are   leaving   tho ranks of   that party
leaves no   room  to doubt tlie result of
tho counting of  the ballots on the day
of liattle.    Il lias been a matter of surprise   to   us   how any self-respecting
citizen   making  tlie slightest pretense
to honesty mid being desirous uf seeing
a pure government in power at Ottawa
can for a moment extend the least support to what has been properly termed
a howling brood ef   noisome boodlers.
We know   that   some   have   had the
courage   lo   come  out from amongst
those they have associated with in the
past, politically.     All honor is due lo
such   men, who   are ss patiiotio as to
be aide to rise above   party in favor of
country.    Those who still cling to the
apron   strings   of   the   high priest of
corruption are really to bo pitied. Reason and argument with tliein are of uo
uvnil.     They   are Conservatives aud
stick to that   faith, even though they
should be  trailed through tlie mire of
jobbery   nnd   boodleism.      Why tbis
should   be   so   with   people   who are
otherwise   credited with being intelligent beings we are at a loss to understand.    In no contest which has taken
place in Canada   either before or since
Confederation  hns there been such intense   feeling  as   tliere is at present.
Our belief for some time past bus been
that   when   the opportunity presented
itself the   electorate   would hurl from
power those who have so mi-managed
the affairs of -.lie Dominion.      We are
now more sanguine than ever that the
sovereign   people   aro   demanding   a
change and   that they  are determined
to   have   it.     Iu   our own Province,

at least four out of the six representatives in the next House will be opposed
to the  Government.    The Northwest

How  tho  Tories "non-Justed"
When the Tories were seeking to defeat   the  Liberal  Government at the
general  election of  1878 says the St.
John Telegraph, they declaimed much
against the   frightful extravagance of
the administration of  Mr. Mackenzie.
Iu 1877 the expenditure of tbe Government was $23,713,071, and the amount,
levied in tbe shape of taxes $17,697;9-4
These sums  the Tories declared to be
altogether too large; and it was stated
ou the platform of- the Mechanics' Institute by a gentl-man who afterwards
became  Finance  Minister   under the
new   Conservative  Government, that
the sum   of   $22,oC0,0C0   was amply
sufficient to meet all   the expenditures
of the Government.   When the Tories
got into power on this cry and the so-
called National Policy was put forward
by the new Government, it wns declared that the  taxes   wore  llpt to be increased but only "readjusted," so thin |
the manufacturing interests of Canada
might be better protected.   The people
of   Canada   were, not  to pay moio in
taxes, they   were  only to pay it in a
different way.     These facts are neces
sary to be stated because many of the
younger   voters are not aware of  the
false  pretences   by which   the Tories
climbed into power.     Nearly one-half
of those who   will vote at the coming
general  election   were children when
the campaign of. 1878 was being run,
whilo others, who were not then voters
did not give sufficient attention to political matters to have the events tt that
election fixed iu their memories,   How
hnve tbe  promises  of  economy then
made been kept? ���< If. the taxation under  the  Mackenzie  Government was
too high, what shall we say to ir, now
increased as   it lijas been to the extent
of $10,tOO,COO a year.     To show how
under the Tories the   taxation was re-
adjus'ed, we   will   take   the amounts
obtained   by   taxation by the Government of Canada for 20 years .from 1874
to   1893 inclusive,, in  period; of  Ave

on the evening of May lfith in tho

A* H p.m, the hell was filled to overflowing and tlie male members of the

was indulged in by a metry throng.

The Orand Master of the Masinic
fraternity Lacey- D.- Johnson paid, on
Monday June 8th, aa official but some
what, unexpected 'visit, to Mountain
Lodge No. 11 A.F. A A.M. He was
cordially received and ss heartily wel
corned as if he had given a month's
notice'. The usual monthly communi
cation, was held and after the business
ot the evening had been gone through,
the members present accompanied by
the Most Worshipful Orand Master
retired to the dining room of the Nellis
Houso, where they enjoyed a very
tasty *���' collation provjdtd.by Mr. C. N.
Nellis st a rather short notice. He
proved himself equal to the occasion
���nd thoroughly pleased his guests
with the spread provided. After the
feast hsd been enjoyed to the full, the
table was called to order by the Master
of the Lodge Mr. James Mathie, who
showed that he was as good a toast-
master as he is a Mason. Her Majesty's health wus drunk with enthusiasm
snd it Was followed by "The Craft"
and the way in which tbis toast was
received told in no uncertain worda
that the Masons of Donald are true to
the traditions of tbeii order. The call
for the sneeesss of the Grand Lodge of
British Columbia coupled with the
name of the Grand Master brought
forth an inspiriting response from
Mountain- L-flj-e and when Mr. Johnson roes to respond it wss evident to
sll tbst he was more than pleased with
the outburst of loyalty to tho cardinal
principles of Masonry shown by all
present. In his eloquent address be
impressed npon-the brethern the grand
���nd noble aims of tbe oldest order In
Christendom and very successfully
inculcated what is a leaning doctrine
of Masonry : "A Mason should be a
Mason both inside and outside of the
lodge." The Most Worshipful Grand
Master after a splendid effort lasting
about bait an hoar daring which be
wat listened too with rapt attention
took hiseeat amidst loud applause.
ince as it behooved and coming from
smrli a distance gave us a e-ieech

of "ciii-d uiiile faithe."

realized if a man works for a companv
it is not necessary that he should lie

this district am bet-inning to find out
that Mara, even backed by E. King
Dodds is not in it and that a man who
is the soul of honor and integrity is
more entitled to every holiest man's
vote than a man who has his own
selfish ends to gain.
