late requirements, especially in the way
of trails roads and bridges. The construction of a ruilway from Vancouver
toMidway.aseuuiioiated by tho policy
of Mr. Martin's Government, would,
fn my opinion, be an undertaking involving very serious possibilities. To
say that we aro to pledge tho credit of
���the Province to auch an enormous
expenditure, involving twice the
amount of our preseut publio debt Is to
me a project of at least very great
doubt, if not wholly Indefensible,

In thia direction without, I fear, an

and prominent feature of Hs policy,
nor am I prepared ta form ao alliance
with the prospective parties now urging their claims upon tbe people, determining to hold mynelf free to a-dvocate
and aupport such measuree only aa in
my judgment will beat conserve the
urgent necessities of the Provinoe,dealing with issues that arise upon a sound
businesslike policy.
In this respeot I claim, therefore,
for tbe preaent, the privilege of being

We must spare ao effort to maintain
the utmost confidence in financial

effectually be done by assisting towards
the adjustment of all differences between labor and capital. This Is so
Indispensable aa to demand at the

I say let it alone, and allow their conditions to become hainuinizi'd under
the law. each renli/ing that they have
at stake thuir common -welfare and
mutual ends to serve.
My determination, its iu the pasr.
will not be lessened to bring about a
practicable scheme by which trunk
roads ean be constructed into our min
ing regions. I hnve already given sub
stantial evidence ns tu this hy my
efforts in securing appropriations for
the different districts within thi*? con
��tituenc>. These efforts will not
be relaxed, nnd with the adoption of the plan f have nlrcndy
proposed, viz.: to capitalize tho royalty
dues or have recourse to other means
of local nssessmnnt I believe n fund
cau be created that will meet ever.v
ruKiotmitlo demand towards the eon
struotjoti of trunk roads. The repairing ami opening up of new trails must
necessarily bo provided from our ordinary revenue, and I will spare no efforts*
to see that tbe I'fqn reinoiits of this
constituency aro fairly .and fully con

beiiovo thnt our appropriations have
not been expended iu some cases to the
belt nd vantage, aud my policy in
Inline wiil h* to see that ihe services
of thoae who are more directly interested in sueli work will bo given a
decided preference.
Tho repairs aud maintenance of the
trunk road from Golden tu Cnnal Flnt
should hu distributed to the settlors,

their struggle to make for themselves

Your obedient servant,
Golden, May 10th, 1900.
To the Electors of North East Kooteijay.
Having received tlio nomination cf a largo portion of tho Elector*?
of this District as Candida to in tho Liberal-Conservative interest for
tho Legislative Assembly at tho forthcoming Generul Election, I have lifts
honour herouhder to placo before you my views on BOino of the more
important Political issues of the dny.
In order to hispiro confidence in tho Investing public and to ensufe
to tbe Province the prosperity which is its due. it is of tho lirst importance that tho present state of paralysis and chaos, which unfortunately
exists In the Lsglalntivo Assembly at Victoria, should bo replaced by one
of businc.-'y activity and order. Thia can only lie effected by putting iu
powor a body of practical men having the complete confidence of tho
people nnd n thorough knowledge of their wantn. and bolng bound together
by a community of interests which will keep thetn a solid party, with a
definite polioy, and one loader, after Mr. Martin and his abortive Cabinet
have been df-frated and discredited, Tbe only solid party now in tlie fieM
is tho one to which I belong and which I ple-lgo myself to support.
Tho first plank on our platform is to actively aid the constiucticm
of trails and roads in the undeveloped portions of the Province, My
intimate knowledge of tbis t)istrict would cnahlo uie to make known your
requirements in thia respect; and tbe development uf North East Kootenay
will always bo my chief aim. I believe it would be possible to devisu a
scheme whereby the mineral claims of one particular section might be
madt to contribute n share of the cost of any trunk road which would
benefit them all; nnd I am in far onr of such a scheme,
I am opposed to the granting of a bonus to nny Hallway Company
which does not give the Government control of its rates and an option of
I am in favour of, nnd would support, any prACticAl scheme whereby the agricultural resources of the Provlnco would receive assistance
from the Government; so that as far as possiblo each District, might raise:
the supplies required for its own mines, and thus reap the full benefit di
the development of its mineral resources.
The Agency of tho Province In London, which, under the "penny-
wise nnd pound-foolish" policy of ttie late Administration, hus become
restrlctod aud ineffective, should be, nt once, placejl on n mcrfi efiicient
basis, with a representative, properly paid, who would be capable of supplying reliable information to British Capitalists; so that tbey would
renlise how favorable ft field this Province offers for profitable investment.
In regard to the Eight Hour Lnw, nny amendments which would
render thn law acceptable to hoth Miners and -Mine Owners would receive
mv strongest support. The amending of this law is of vital importance
to tho Province and must he taken in hand by men who have tit least
aome practical knowledge of Miners and Mining.
Hospitals And Medical Men in tho outlying portions ofthe Provineo
should receive more generous assistance from the Government than thsy
do at present.
Every effort should bo made to discourage Oriental immigration.
Iu conclusion. I would sny thnt I nm opposed to any legislation
pueh as tho Alien Act, which tends to estrango Capital and hinders the
development of our resources,
lam NOT in favour of " the abolition of tho $200.00 deposit for
Candidate* for tho Legislature.*'

Recently there has been much argj
uient abroad aiming to prove that tbo de*
capitation-,; * criminals is the most cruel
form possible of Inflicting the deatb sentence. Some of the pronounced opponents of this form of capital punishment
declared that the circulation of blood iu
the severed head did not cease for three
hours and that during tbat period tbe
bend could see, bear and smell. Ur.
Wurm, a German expert, has felt moYCil
to reply to these statements. He says
that he handled many beads of decapitated criminals and that tbere Is not tbe
least doubt possible as to tbe fact of absolute death.
"Immediately after the execution," be
says, "the heads were pale, entirely
bloodless and absolutely without life.
Not even reflex actions could be produced, and only for a short period could
the galvanic current produce them. But
a most Interesting Inquiry would be thut
of remaining spinal energy In the decapitated body. Beheaded frogs, chickens,
ducks and even rabbits have beeu known
to carry out Independent movements,
such as scratching of au Irritated spot,
jerking away an extremity when It wns
pinched and going through tbe motions
of running, swimming and jumping."
Apropos of this Dr. Wurm quotes this
queer tale told In n book published in
1088 In Hamburg entitled "Greatest
Things In the World; or, 80 Galled Relations Curlosa*.
"Emperor Liulwl-g of Bnvnrla in 13117
sentenced Sir Diets of Schaucnburg witb
four squires to death for freebootiug. At
the place of execution SU* Diets begged
the judges to put him and his squires into
a row, each man one foot from the next.
Then he was to be executed first, nnd bis
body would arise and run as far along
the row of prisoners as hc could. Each
man whom be succeeded In passing was
to be let free. Tbe judges laughed and
granted the request, saying that never
before had they seen a beheaded man
run. Thereupon Diets put his meu In 11
row, placing the one whom he liked the
best nearest to him. Then he kneeled,
the sword fell and took his head off clean,
and In the next Instant the body bnd
risen and was darting by tho four men.
It ran past them all and fell prone a few
feet beyond the farthest one. Then the
emperor pardoned the men as bis judges
had promised."

Those who know the family umbrella
of tradition will be interested In reading
what Walter Besant remembers about
tbe institution tbat has disappeared from
"The real old family umbrella has gone
out. Call that slim, stuck up, affected,
attenuated thing n family umbrella, (lo
away, I remember the genuine family
umbrella. It was kept In reudiuess behind every front door; it was n large,
portly, heavy Instrument; as an emblem
of respectability It was highly esteemed
In middle class society; It was serviceable
as a tent In rainy weather; It could bt
used as a weapon ot offense and defense
on occasion. I have seen a picture of an
elderly gentleman keeping off a foot pad
by means of this lethal umbrella. He
mode as If be would spear or prod the
villain. Why, one prod would alone
make a hole of six Inches diameter In
that murderous carcass. The nurse used
to carry It, with difficulty managing the
baby and the umbrella; It went out to tea
with the young ladles; the maid who
fetched thero home took tbe umbrella
with her. It succeeded the lantern and
the club formerly carried by the 'prentice
when he escorted his mistress to the card
party after dark.
"I remember tt, 1 aay. There were
tbree brothers who came to the same
school where I was but a tiny little boy,
Tbey lived at aome distance nnd bnd to
past on their way to school through a
stratum of Inferior respectability. Every
morning brought to these tbree brothers
the delight and the excitement of battle
with the boys belonging to thnt Inferior
respectability. To the eldest brother, who
carried the really Important weapon, the
umbrella was exactly what bis batt lens
wt* to the Lion Heart; to be raised It; so
ht wielded It; to be swung It; to be laid
fall enemies low to right and to left of
him, before him and behind bim, while
the other two, relying on the books tightly ttrapped, brought them-to bear, with-
shrewd knocks and thwacks and poundings, on heada and shoulders and ribs.
'Twaa a famous family umbrella���green,
too, If I remember aright."

1 once wrote a play, unfortunately not
my only one; since then I have sinned
similarly a number of times. Perhaps
tbe gentle reader may have seen my
name on some theater programme. If ht
then neglected attending the performance,
he made a great mistake, in my humble
opinion, and I advise bim aa n friend to
make It good at the next opportunity,
particularly as the Gorman stage managers, who underrate my merits, very
seldom give one of my works, wbich bas
not prevented my writing 21 plays, witb
02 nets and 732 scenes. To prevent mistakes allow me to remark tbat not each
of the 21 plays contained 02 acts and 732
scenes, but altogether they boast that
number. But all this does not belong
here, and I beg pardon for the digression.
If I am not mistaken, I mentioned In tha
beginning that I had written a play. It
was not a five act tragedy, ot. a three
act comedy; oh, no, only a modest little
one act piece had flowed from my pen,
and wheu I bow what I had done���behold
It wos very good. No wonder that I
quickly decided to deprive tbe world no
longer of this enjoyment, nor myself et
the laurels of fame. I had the llttl* play
neatly copied and sent It to a theatrical
publisher.   At that time I had uot the      ,
Sdd experience of today.   I was iunocent-rwhen oeeh s('en*a showed more and. inar��
enough to think theatrical publishers and
agents read the effusions of unknown
authors; therefore I was not a little surprised to have my play returned to me
after about four weeks, with u polite
printed letter, lu which tho publisher informed me that be had no use for tht
play. Tbe flrst day 1 waa very much depressed, the second annoyed;, finally, on
the third day, I came to the conclusion
that "that ass ot a publisher" knew nothing about It, packed up my play again
and sent It to another.
The same result, with the difference
that the aecond publisher aent back the
MS. not prepaid, so I called him a
"blockhead," wbo knew less than the
first, and sent It off to a third.
Dut this oue also sent lt back���this
time registered and not prepaid. I laid
it aside lu silent 'resignation.
Some timo after chance took me to a
large town and another chance led to my
acquaintance with a manager of a theater, who by chance was staying there.
As a matter of course I did uot neglect
this combination ot lucky chances. I
gave him my little play, wbich 1, by
another chance, bad by me, and be promised me to read It os soon as possible.
He kept bis word sooner than I expected, for the next day he Wrote me he
was delighted with tbe play and would
bring It out with pleasure, if I would uot
require a royalty. Inclosed was a for-
mula for a poBtoffice money order for 18
marks 5 pfennlge, made out to the manager, tbe price of 12 tickets.
How shabby! I would not Insist upon
tbe royalty. What did tbat matter? 1
would also take the 12 tickets���one mnst
encourage art���but the 6 pfennlge, which
Is tbe postman's perquisite for delivering
tbe money, he might bave managed to
pay himself. If his postscript had not
contained an Invitation to tht fint rehearsal of. my play, to take place tht
next day but one, I do not know what I
should bave done, bnt as It was I swallowed my Irritation and tent the money.
Tbe day downed. The rehearsal was
set for 11 o'clock. At 7 I was up. The
evening before 1 had looked through Let-
slug's "Drainnturgle" and Klein's "History of tbe Drama" and over tht many
obaciirt passages I had become a little
stupider than I usually am,  At half past
9 1 could stand my room no longer and
wtnt out of doors. Seven times I walked up and dowu tba street In which tht
theater was, the eighth tlma I ventured
nt fnr at the entrance and by tbe tenth I
took a bold resolution and walked In.
Oh, how dosolate tbe great hall looked!
It was a rather low class smoking then*
ter. Empty and half empty beer glassci
stood on tbt tables which filled tbt hall
lit space. Gross looking waiters, witb
their thtrt aleevts rolled up, moved about
betwttn tht rows ot chain. Tht curtain
waa half ratted, and on the dark ttagt

An unpttaaant feeling overcame mt.

rote to greet the manager.
It was a newspaper boy. I threw tin
unhappy one a look which would havt
slain an ox, If It wen possible to slay at
vx with looks.
A quarter past 11.
1 nervously studied tba hands of my
watch.   Ten more mlnntet passed,
1 ordered another glass of beer iu ordet
to ask the waiter when rehearsals usually began here. 'Au Inarticulate grunt
gave me tu understand that be did nol
kuow himself, I decided to give him
only fi pfennlge tip out of revenge.
At last tha manager appeared.
"A thousand pardons, my dear sir!" br
cried. "Tbe rehearsal is impossible today.
My wife is busy with ibe wash, uud us it
is necessary in tbe piece thut"���
"What! Tbe wusb is necessary In tht
piece?" 1 asked.
"Ob, no; my wife���and sbe is washing
today," be replied.
"Ab, your wife is a washerwoman?" 1
aald. with some malice.
"Wbat?" be returned, looking suspiciously at me.
My blood boiled. "1 must Infer from

"Wbat are yon thinking nf?" be Inter
rupted me. "My wile ti nn urtress, ii

"Besides," bu went on. "It is not su

After some hesitation I Ituully prom
Ised to put In an appearand1, und tbt

This answer struck me dumb. 1 really

In oneself. At lirst I firmly decided tc

But 1 would not intend another rehearsal. I wus firm on thnt point, and
solemnly I swore It by the lieud uf Patro-

Every cue of my readers will expect

chair, beside the prompter's box. The
bell rang, tbe prompter opened bis book.

What I expected 'occurred. Nobody
knew one word. Tbe first actor spoke
the first sentence In such n manner as to
give a totally wrong meaning. The see
ond, whose opening words wen "Ventre
Saint Oris!" understood Henry IV's favorite oath to be a person, and Interrupted tbe rehearsal with the remark
that the representative uf M. St. Grit
had not yet arrived. Tbe third did nol

Thereby hangs a story of nn embarrassing episode. The minister called the other dny and nt the close of his call offered
prayer. Tbe next day the ft-yenr-old

tbe household where the prayers were offered, entertained her mother's callers
with un account of the pastor's visit.
"And tliey did uu awful queer thing,"
snid the youngster. "Tliey never did tbat
at our bouse before."
"And what wus tbnt?" graciously asked
one of the callers.

The performance began and ended as 1

even though tbe curtain fell amid loud
applause I knew for that I only hod to

tbe resounding, brazen bands of my

efforts by enthusiastically culling me before the curtain.
The hour of revenge and triumph bod

After some common discourses had

brought, he delivered to me, bidding me
tnke It home with me and read It at my
leisure nnd, when I had done so, return
It to him with my judgment. When I

I found It was that excellent poem which
he entitled "Paradise Lost."
After I had, with the best attention,
read It through I mnde him another visit

asked me how 1 liked it and wbut I

Without good dig< stiou there cau be
neither good health nor happiness.
More depends upon tbe perfect working
of the dixn-t.YH urgniiH than moat people imagiue, nud even slight functional
disturb-iuces of tbe stomach leave the
viotlm irritable,melancholy uud apathetic. Iu suoh cases uio-4 people resort
to laxative medicines, but these only
further aggravutu Ibe tronble. What is
needed is a touio; sooietniug that will
boild up the system, instead of weakening it as purgative mtdiaiues do.
For this purpose there is uo medioine
equal to Dr. Wil inms'PlnkP.lls. They
enrich tbe blood and strengthen and
stimulate the digestive trait from flrst

tbe oaso of Mr. Thomas A. Stewart,

who mentioned the faot that be was
suffering from dyspepsia, Mr. Stewart
said:-" Wby don't you tuke Hr. Williams'Fink Pills?" Asked wby be

"Simply because tbey are tbe best

and the lood that I ate gave me bat
little nourishment. On tbe recommendation of u friend I began using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills a little over a
year ago. I soon experienced relief
and no longer dreaded meal-time, bot
as I was determined that the oare
should be permanent if possible, I con-
tinned taking the pills in light doses
for several months. Tho result is every
vestige of the tronble left me and I
have as good an appetite now ob any
boarder in the house, and my digestive
organs work like a charm. I may also
add that my general health was greatly improved as a result of using the
"Do you object to my publishing this

"Well, I have no desire for publicity," raid Mr. Stewart, but if yon

Martin Falls to Find
Labor Vote Absolutely Opposed
To Him.
Vancouver, May 28th.���Out ofthe
88 constituencies In British Columbia
Martin has only boon sucessful in in-.
duoing 28 men to follow his banner
snd in several cases these candidates
qualified their position by styling
themselves Independent Mart in it Hi?,
although Mr. Martin has dec ured that
ho detests an independent Martinite.
Sovcral other candidates have been
ai-onml ns standard.bearers of the Government upon a vague understanding
that should a miracle occur, and Mar-
tinisin be sustained, its fi:under aud
head And every constituent part will
stand ready to, step down and out in
favor of Mr. J. C Brows should tho
party vote for his leadership. As for
this, Mr. Martin would be the last
man in the world to think of seriously,
Martin, in view, no doubt, of tbe
fatnii e of candidates in his behalf, is
a enn n'dnto in both Vancouver and
Victoria, and from latest Advices received from these cities it ts absolutely
certain he will ba defeated, as the labor
vote is dead hub inst him.
Martinism it is now certain will be
set at rest ou the 9th day of June*next
for all timo to come in this 1'rovince,
and it ti equally certain we will have
a government thut will be for tba good
of the people, aud not an experimental
one, which is the only one Martin has.
The electors of North East' Kootenay
ahould stand shoulder to shoulder and
oppose any ''Carpet Bafiger" who
comes amongst us, as against any one
of our own people. Lor, justice now be
done, and hy an almost unanimous vote
inform Mr. Burnett, of Vancouver,that
when he next seeks for political honors
he had better do so in tho oity in which
hc resides.
Mr. Wells hns certain claims upon
this constituency whioh none can deny
but let us ojiposn any mau who id the
tool of Mr. Martin.
Since writing the above we have
definite information that Mr. Martin
will absolutely fail to carry one out of
the 14 seats on Vancouver Island.
This, .t course, determines his fate
beyond redemption, and on the 10th
day of June he will, of course, he
called upon to forward his resignation.
Exit Mr. Martin for all time.
The following resolution was passed
unanimously at a meeting held iu
Palliser on Thursday last : ���
'��� Resolved,
"That this meeting of the employes
of Mr. W. C. Well* deprecates thesi��te-
ments made by Mr, Burnett and Capt.
Armstrong with reference io the wages
(aid by Mr, Wells, and as to the manner in which he conducts the smalt
store iu connection wilh the mill at
Palliser ;
''That the said empleyeshereby asrert
that tho wages paid by Mr. Well are,
aud have been, amongst the belt paid
for similar work, while the store
charges have been fair and reasonable
"Tbat the employes of Mr. Wells
further wish it to be publicly knowu
that they have always been treated
with the greatest kindness *��nd consideration hy Mr. Wells, who has
shown hiu*is--If to he a true friend te
his employes;
"That >hey wish htm all success in
this election, In which, as a friend of the
labor interest, they hope he will have
the loyal support of our follow-workers
in other parts of tho electorate.

A large ninnb-ir of tho elector, of
this Risling having expressed tbeir desire to the Honorable Joseph Martin,
Premier of this Province, lhat he
select a candidate for your suffrages
at the forthcoming Election, I bave
the honor at the Instance of the Hon-
oraMo Joseph Martin to placo myself
fn your hands a. a Candidate In the
intereat*. of the Government.
My views ou the important politi-.
cal issues agitating the publio minds
at the prs-seut timo ure fully embodied
In Mr. .Martin's platform, with whioh
io its entirely I am fully in accord-
especially o t lhs\r.s*ation. of Mongolian
Labor���Roads and Trails and Rail
Referring to the lirst of these I am
in favor of aiich legMailon as will
completely proveut iu tho future any
kind of Mongolian immigration, either
Chinese or Japanese, imo this country
���suoh legislation also to provide thit
no certificates lw granted to Mongolian!) leaving this I'.-oviuco enabling
thom to return. If returned I wilt by
advoo-icy and vo'ed*. all iu my power ts>
have all statutes restricting Chines*,
and Japaneso labor disallowed by the
D--minion Government re-enacte.1.
With reference to Roads ami Trails'
I am iu f.ivor of any feasible scheme
that may be brought forward for the
purpose of enabling mine owners to
operate their claims by building rouds
to ths siune. I also fully appreciate
the Importance ofoisenlng up new districts by the construction of trail, and
bridges, also tliekoopliigin good repair
of all present constructed roads. Consequently if elected I will use my
utmost endeavors to have the requirements of the Province in general tnd
North E.ist Kootenay In particular in
these rospocts attended to. And In
connection with this mutter I am in
favor of obtaining a sufficient appropriation as will enable tha dyking of
tbe Kicking Htirae river to be exteudod.
Regarding railways I contend tbat
the plank in Mr. Martin's platform-is
quite workable, being that adopted by
other countries with success and ghat
this principle should be applied to the
propossri railway lo Fort Steele as soon
as practicable.
As regards politics lu Federal matters I may say I am a straight Literal.
I will have several opportunities before election slay of elaborating my
view, on the public platform and which
I trust will receive yout favorable consideration.
I am,
Your obedient set rant,
