The Provincial Election, to be fought
on . arty Line.
A meeting of the committee ot ths
Liberal Association was held at the
Queen's Hotel on Saturday night,
when there was a good attendance,
Mr. J. C. Greene in the chair. It was
stated that Mr. Bostock, H.P., would
be In Oolden In a fortnight or so,
and it was arranged that a complimentary supper should be tendered
him by the Liberal party on the occasion of his visit and a social arranged, so as to give those who wished
to see him on matters of publio interest
an opportunity of doing so. Messrs.
Henderson, Hamilton, and Haggen
were appointed a committee to carry
out the airangements. It waa decided
to invite the co-operation of representatives ot the Liberal party from
Donald, Beaver, Palliser, Field, Windermere, and other portions of the
district in making the function a
An interesting discussion took place
on the best means ot working the
coming provincial elections, and the
following resolution was adopted on
the motion of tbe Hon. F. W. Aylmer:
"That it ia the opinion ot this committee that the next provincial elections
should be run on strictly party lines."
The matter of the proposed Provincial Liberal Convention was then
discussed, and it was r**i~lv_t to
support sneh convention, and to urge
that it should be held at Kamloops as
the most convenient point. A general
meeting of the members of tne association will he held to elect delegates to
represent the association at the convention.

opinion that the best road available
Ior wagon traffic can be got from
Edmonton through th* Yaliowbead
Pass to the Fraasr River, along tbat,
and thsn across to the Liard River,
whioh would then be followed to the
head waters of the Tukon. A rood
along the Moberley trail from Oolden
to Donald and up Canoe River would
strike the proposed road on the Fraser
Biver at a point no further from
Oolden than Fort Steele. Taking
Calgary as a common point ws find
that th* route from there to Tote Jteono
Cache, where the Yellowhead Pass
road would come ont, is a total distance of 600 miles, being nearly 800
miles by rail from Calgary to Edmonton and 300 miles by road from Edmonton to Tete Jeune Cache. Th*
distance from Calgary to Donald Is
IM miles, and from Donald to Tete
Jeune Cache Is about 160 miles, so
tbat for traffic from ths east the rout*
from Donald would be ISO mile*
shorter thsn the route via Edmonton,
while for traffic weet io the coast the
distance would be 800 miles shorter
thao by the Edmonton route. The
road np the Columbia to Tew Jeune
Cache can be made a Srst-class wagon
rood all the way without crossing a
mountain range. In view of the importance ot thi* question, meetings

Some Kicking In Barno.t
In discussing genersl matters the
otlier night tbe Liberal Committee
severely condemned the Kicking Horse
bridge affair. It waa statea that the
bridge was already broken-hacked,
while the contract had been mo��t
loosely carried out, The new Gold
Commissioner slso appeared to be in a
peculiar position in the matter, ns he.
knew nothing about the arrangements
for building it and oould find no contract papers. His responsibility In
connection witb the bridge began with
paying for it and having the pleasure
of maintaining it afterwards. Complaint was also made that the C. P. R.
had already caused much public inconvenience by using the bridge at a
sidetrack and backing their trains on
it, thereby blocking traffic. In fact it
was considered doubtful whether,
although public money hsd gone to
build the bridge, the public had any
right-of-way over it at all on account
of the loose way in which the work
had been arranged and carried out.

J. Lamontagne,
TraM-rtel Artlnt.
One ot the most mischievous pro.
visions ot the present mining law is
that which allows holders of claims
to pay an amount Into the publio
treasury In lieu ot development work.
What the oountry wants is the development ot Its resources, but here is a
case in whioh the Government agree
to let actual development work go,
provided the person liable to do it
salves his oonsoienoe and helps the
publio treasury by the payment of a
sum thst should otherwise go into
actual work and the employment of
labor. Such a provision is really a
fraud against the best Interests of the
mining industry. We hope that steps
will be taken to amend the law in this
respect, for as it at present stands it
gives the rioh speculator an advantage
over the prospector who has to depend
on his own labor to do his development
work, whereas the other actually buys
an escape from what should be his
duty. Suoh discrimination should not
be tolerated a day, abd the sooner all
mining investors, whether rich or
poor, are placed on an equal tooting
the better. The fact that the moneyed
investor has to do his work just the
same as the other is a protection to
the struggling miner tbat he will be
able to find employment to carry him
along, and thus ensure to hlm better
chances of success, while at tht tame
time promoting iho development ot the
mineral resources of the country.
The statements received by ut of
late from several mining men thow
the necessity that exists for tho opening of the Moberley trail referred to in
a recent issue. This is the trail whioh
gives access not only to the country
abutting on the Columbia Elver north
of Donald but also to the Klnbasket
Lake and Canoe River country. The
most convenient means of access to
this country is by going in from
Donald and Beaver, as the distance is
muoh shorter than from the Revelstoke side. There is this further
advantage that the river is navigable
a great part ol the distance, and
supplies can conveniently be taken
that way as the boats go with the
current, and there is consequently
none of the wearying work of battling
np stream with loaded boats. The
main difficulties are at the portages.
With a good trail, however, many
people would prefer to go Iuto that
oountry without boats. The Moberley
trail has always had a good reputation
as a means ot access, but it hss been
allowed to fall into disrepair. What
is urgently wanted is tha. this trail
should be cleared aud the bridges put
in repair, when there would be access
provided to the northern extremity ot
the valley of the Columbia River, and
in addition tbe Canoe River oountry
would be made comparatively easy ol
access. Tbat oountry will absorb an
immense number ol prospectors in tbe
near future, and that with great
chances of success. We ask Mr.
Griffith, at Government Agent, to
represent this matter urgently to the
powers that be.
At a time when the best means of
reaching tbe Yukon from the inland
districts is being con-idered we may
well point out that Donald Is really
the best and nearest point from whioh
tb oonstruot a road from the main line
of the C. P. R. to Klondyke. The
opinion of Dr. Dawson, who hss a
thorough knowledge of the country, is
well known, when he expressed the
view tbat the proper route for a railway to open up the interior waa along
the Columbia Valley and Canoe River.
By this route it is stated that a line
can be carried for 800 miles without
erosslng a mountain range, and that
then It reaches t far-stretching prairie
country into tha mountain region
whioh it tht source of the supply of
the richer that now make tht Klondykt
world-renowned at a gold field. The
distance by this route appears from
the map to bt only about a thousand
miles,.and wt believe there Is no other
point in Canada from whioh the gold
boom region can bt reached so easily
as from the C. P. R. line in the Columbia Valley. Ths route that wt
have suggested should be taken into
consideration in tht fixing of any plan
of railway communication.

The tyranny ot the mine owners of
Pittsburg In relation to tbe strikers
ts a shocking story ot the power of
capital in the United States, and is an
Index to the serious trouble tbat may
shortly bt looked tor in the neighbouring country aa the result of the worship of the plutocracy. When the
wives and daughters muster to defend
tbe bread winners we may bt sure
that the time is not far distant when,
if the present conditions continue, the
workers will rise in civil war for their
rights. If labor cannot obtain (air
treatment by lawful means there is
little doubt but that the breaking
point will soon be reached when the
workers of America will repeat the
story of history and attempt to hoist
their flag of viotory through fields of
blood. The causes that led to tho fall
of the Roman Empire are being repeated today in the United States to a
degree hitherto unparalleled In history,
and it is little wonder that thoughtful
men view with alarm tha evidences ol
the present and the prospective effect
on tht future.

Am lBtereitl-g Interview
The Rev. Dr. Robertson, Superintendent ot Presbyterian Missions,
conduoted communion services In the
Presbyterian churoh in Golden on
Sunday week,, when a large congregation met tor worship. A number
of new members were enrolled, some
from Scotland, some from Manitoba,
and from eastern Canada. The affairs
of the congregation are in a healthy
state, and under Mr. Haroourt's ministry there is steady progress. A
representative of the Era called on Dr.
Robertson at the residence of Mr,
Lake, and he gave him the Incidents
in this sketch.
Dr. Robertson was accompanied by
Mrs. and Mlas Robertson, and the
party viiited the 81ocan and West
Kootenay oountry, and went to the
coast���visiting Nanaimo, Wellington,
Vanoouver, Viotoria, Ao. Tht coast
oities are in a depressed oonditlon.
Owing to the opening up of coal mines
on the American side, und the importation ot coal from Australia, there is
not the demand for B. C. coal in San
Franoisoo that there used to be, and
hence that industry languishes. The
employment of Japanese miners is said
also to operate against the Canadian
miners. The depression has sent off a
large number of men to the Klondike,
sixty young men having gone from
the Presbyterian congregation in
Wellington and twenty-eight from
Union. Viotoria is beginning to get
some ol the Klondike trade and hopes
to get more. 11100,000 worth of sop-
plies are laid to have been bought
there recently.
There ii a great deal of good work
being done in the interior of B. C.
Prospectors are out everywhere, and
they are encouraged by tbeir "finds
To a Canadian, however, tt Is disappointing to find how muoh this mining
industry is in the bands ot Americans.
Tbe United States furnishes the bulk
of the prospectors, miners, capitalists,
traders, 4c; at some points seven-
eighths ot tbe good mines were said to
be owned by them. Canadians oan
furnish money to corner wheat and
pork, but can spate none to extract
minerals from their own mines, and
there is great danger that this large
wealth will go to enrich a foreign
country. At tbe present time then is
a ran opportunity for men of capacity
to guide publio opinion in Canada as to
the best way of utilising the wealth of
the country for its tnriohmtnt. The
towns in the Interior an growing
fast. Greenwood, Anaconda, Grand
Forks, Trail, Sandon, Slocan City, and
Now Denver all sprang Into existence

A gnat deal is being done to facilitate transportation, and hen too the
Americans seem to take the lead. The
C. P. R., however, Is exerting itself In
a commendable way. It has excellent
steamers on the Arrow and Slogan
Lakes, and the railways to Arrow
Head and from Nakusp to Sandon, and
that under construction from Slocan
City to Slocan Crossing, will make It
easy to reach all important: points in
the interior esst of tbe Columbia.
Then is great need, however, of tht
railway from the Crow't Nett Pott to
Nelson and a road from Rossland to
tha coast. A lint connecting the
interior with the tout would enable
Vancouver, Westminster, and Viotoria
to compete for the trade in tht Kootenay oountry, and that trade would
lift these cities put of the mud as it
hat done Spokane and other townt in
tht sonth. Unless our wealth it made
available to build up our own oities
and enrieh our own" people we might
at well not have it.

From. Ist Vincouvir World.
The mining resources of thit province art being rapidly developed. New
claims, an being located every day,
and for 'heir development good and
cheap machinery is required. The
progressive management of the British
Columbia Iron Wotkt Co., Ltd., of
thit city, have realised the necessity
of expanding their business so at to
meat the increased demand certain to
arise for new and improved mining
machinery, and for that purpose have
added a mluing department to their
already extensive plant, and placed
the same under the management of
Mr. J. 0. Norboin, nn experienced
mechanical engineer, who for many
yean hit b tn engaged in tht manufacture of all classes of mining machinery in San Francisco. Mr. Norboin It
a thoroughly educated, theoretical,
aud practical engineer, and hat for tbt
latt 19 yean devoted hit ipeclil
attention to tht requirement! of the
mlnti. Ht has travailed through all
the mining dittrioti of tht United
Stites of America, and alto tbott of
the Republic of Mexico. Thit year he
hit glvtn hit attention to thit province, tnd tht bright outlook for tht
futun in tht mining ragiont throughout tht oottt, ai well it those In
Kootenay and other interior dittrioti,
hit convinced him of the foot that
there it no oountry looking mon
promising it tht present day. Mr.
Norbom hat been consulting mtohant-
cal engineer for severe! yean for tome
of tht largest mining oompaniet in
California, and will continue the tame
business here. He has designed and
erected tomt of the finest plant! in
that state, and it thoroughly potted on
reduction planet, both tor gold and
tlit-tr ortt, air compressing machinery,
hydraulio machinery, hoitting and
pumping plants, to. Ha it also the
inventor and patentee of one of tho
latest improved ore concentrators. He
hot designed tnd manufactured water
wheels of a highly effective type. Ht
it alto well up In steam engineering
and power plants generally, haying
designed the 1,000 horse power triple
expansion engine tor the Sen Francisco
A San Mateo Electrical railway in San
Franciieo. On bit two trips to Britiah
Columbia lent spring Mr. Norboin
placed mining machinery and made
contract! to the extent of tomt 160,000,
including tht plant of tht Tin Horn
mint at Fairviaw, ail of whieh come
from San Francisco. With their present'plant, and tht making bf a few
alteration! and additions, the British
Columbia Iron Worki Company can
manufacture all of thil class cf machinery. Thit will mean that a great
deal of money that now goes to a
foreign country and elsewhere will be
kept in thit province. Tho miner will
not only get ti good an article and for
lesi money, but will not labor under
the disadvantage ot having to send so
far for repairs and supplies. It will
itimulite tht manufacturing indnatry
of Vancouver, and give employment to
mmy more - meohtnici. Progressive
people like the managen ot the Brit ith
Columbia Iron Works Company art
what our province ihould be proud of.
Witb everv one desIri ng to tee our city

Bitter Disappointments
And Family Grief That Can Be
Paine'.    Celery   Compound    Bring.
Health, day, and Happlne...
Tou an willing to confess, poor
sufferer, thit you have been bitterly
disappointed with past efforts, and
that in your estimation your future
seems dark and gloomy.
You and your friends alone are to
blame if disease is ti-jhtening its chain
around you, making you a sure captive tor the dark and dreaded grave.
Why keep a wife or husband In
feverish anxiety, daily banding over
you with tearful eyes and almost
broken heart? Why cause your children's voices to be hushed, and their
childish sports and guinea to be disregarded and cast aside? They certainly
cannot enjoy life when they see a
father or mother in the agonies of
suffering and deep in mental despair.
You can change the scene by chang
ing and bettering your physical condition. In other words, you can be
cured and made well again by the use
nf Paine's Celery Compound.
Your efforts, up to the present, to
throw off the encircling and deadly
bonds of disease have been vnin and
futile. Your doctor's well-meaning
work has not been productive of cheering results, and you are wasting
money on medicines that can never
meet your case.
Being assured of new health and
life by the use of Paine's Celery Compound, you are sinning againtt heaven
and false to your family and friends if
you refuse to make trial of the great
agency that has saved thousands in
the past.
Paine's Celery Compound Is tbe
grandest disease banisher that medical
science ever devised, and has the en-
donation, of our best doctors, lawyers,
public men, merchants, and others.
Its curing powers are wonderful,
prompt, and sure, and it keeps every
man and woman permanently cured. 138

Lively Proceeding.at the Polio. Court
Mr. Griffith, S.M., had rather a
hard time of it on Tuesday, when he
wu called on to hear a complicated
case about t stove. J. McKensie,
employed by G, B. McDermot, wu
oharged on the Information ot C. A,
Warren, ai tgent for H. Vowell, with
hiving removed a stove from t house
the pro erty of Mr. Vowell. G. B.
McDermot appeared for the accused,
and contended that the information
disclosed no offence. He also asked
that the information be no* amended.
The informant gave evidence that,
as agsnt (or the owner, be had looked
up the house so as to protect the
things that were in it. as they had
been handed over to him in payment
ot rent whioh was dus. The occupant,
Mrs. Norsky, gave bim the goods in
tbe pretence of two witnesses. The
accused entered tbe house tod took
away the itove.
Accused's venlon ot the affair wat
that ht went to the house to remove
the stove by Instructions of his employer, to whom the itove belonged
He hid gone earlier in the dty to
nmovt the itove, tnd had left it tt
the request ot Mn. Norsky thtt ths
might cook tht dinner on it. He did
not break into the houte, u ht found
the back door open, though he uw a
padlock ou tba front door.
On the Informtnt proceeding to
question the scouted, Mr. McDermont
objected that Mr Warren should have
brought tbe witnesses neceuiry to
prove his case, tnd thtt ht oould not
use ths accused for tbat purpose.
His Worship upheld that contention.
W. G. Neilson, J.P., here took the
bench, and after consultation with
His Worship the cue was adjourned
till 3 p.m.
On the court resuming the Hon. F,
W. Aylmer appeared tor Mr. Warren,
and Mr. Blake tor Mr. McKemie. The
information wai then amended at the
instance of the prosecution to a ohtrge
against tbe accused ot breaking and
Mr. Blake objected to the Information on the ground tbat a charge of
that kind could not be laid excepting
where there was evidence of intent to
commit a felony, and there could have
been no suoh intent in this case.
Mr. Aylmer then applied for tn
adjournment for six days to enable
the prosecutor to obtain legal advice.
Mr. Blake objected, as the informant
had had a week, and ahonld htvt
been prepared to go on with hit case.
Mr. Aylmer replied that his client
had made a fair offer of an amicable
settlement, and that it had been rejected. Besides, it wss the duty of
the Crown, and not of Mr. Warren, to
prosecute in a case of tbis kind.
Mr. Blake replied that the ease wu
properly one for civil action, and there
wu nothing oriminal about It.
Mr. McDermot said that Mr. Warren
had now laid a criminal charge against
Mr. McKensie, and if he failed to
prove it steps would soon be taken
against him,
Mr. Aylmer objected to threat! of
that kind being made in eourt.
Mr. Biake said Mr. Warren wu ���
magistrate, and he must go even
further, u by hit oath ol offioe be wu
bound to. prosecute in all cases of
felony. Mr. McKensie acted under
instructions from Mr. McDermot. tnd
if ht wu guilty ot ftlony Mr. Warren
ihould tlto lay tn information against
Mr. McDermot for aiding and abetting
the offence with which Mr. McKensie
wu obtrged.
Hli Wonhlp ttid ht wtnttd time to
look up tbe mttter himself, tnd ht
would grtnt tn adjournment till
Friday morning, acoiiied to bt bound
over in hit own recognisance of 1100.
On the eourt returning thit morning
Mr. Spragge appeared for complainant
tnd Mr. Bltki for accused.
Mr. McDermot gavt evidence thtt
the stove belonged to him tnd wu
lent to Mn. Nonky.
Mr. Blike, for accused, urged thtt
the use should bs dismissed, -u thtn
wu no crimintl Intent, hit ellsnt
merely ctrrying out instructions whioh
his employer hid a right to givo ii
thi stove wss his property tnd tht
building wu open.
Mr. Spragge contended thtt iccuted
hid no right to go Into ��� building, no
mttter what It wu, in tbt possession
of mother tnd nmovt goods therefrom,
tnd Hit Wonhlp mult convict.
Hit Wonhlp, giving judgment, ttid
tht question of ownership of tht ttovi
did not tnttr into tht quel tion. Acoused had clearly no right to enter the
building, whioh wu In Mr. Wtmn't
possession, tnd nmovt tht itove At
tht ut wu done, howtver, in good
filth, under inttructioni from bit
employer, ht would mtnly convict tht
accused tnd release him on hit own
noogniiinot to come up for sentenoe
