The Principle of a Good Business
its-Relation to Public Confidence
f HE fundamental principle of a good business is
its ability to supply worthy merchandise at the
least possible cost to you; the dissemination of its
store news along the line of earnest and honest
effort to tell the truth, as well as diligent and faithful energy in attracting customers and keeping
them. This store is not without precedent in that
direction, but it is leaving no stone unturned to get
closer to that idea of merchandising. There is a
well-defined cause that must govern every act���we
work in the open for your interest and ours. Your
confidence means our success. The patronage you
extended our Economist November Bale proved your
confidence, the values you received proved the
store's worth as a merchandising medium. We
shall continue tb prove its worthby serving you best.

London,  Dto   1���"Buller Suuday"
passed without serioui incidents.  The
Government had taken every precaution to   prevent   disturbances.     The
tradei unions and workingmm's societies, with bands and banners,  atsem-
bled along the embankment this afternoon.   There wire thousands of spectators.     Owing   to   tht   difficulty of
marshaling the large bodiea ef men the
procession wai latt in starting.   It was
headed by a huge banner on which was
a portrait of Buller.     The procession
traversed    Northumberland    avenue,
Pall Mull, St. James street and Piccadilly  to Hyde park.   Tbe window! of
Culblanl and eipecially of the service
clubs were crowded with sightseers.
At Charing 'Cross aeviral mounted
police rode up to the head of the procession   and attempted (o seize plaster
bull of Oen Buller.    The man carryi ng
the bust dashed it to ibe ground.   The
incident caueed*much indignation, but
the leaders were able to curb and re*
strain the jisraders,   some  of  whom
wished to attack the polioeman.
Opposite the War Office there  was
much groun iug and cries of " Shame!"
frpm the men in  the procession, but
otherwise the proceedings were wiih
out incident.
When Hyde park was reached It was
almost dark. Hsre speeches from several platforms, representing England,
Ireland, Sootland. Walei, Devonshire
and the colonies were made. The con
fusion wss so great as to render the
speakers almost inaudible, but amid a
roar of cheers a resolution of sympathy
for General Buller was proposed and
adopted with great enthusiasm.
Features ol the demonstration were
the passing ol the collection box for
the workingman's memorial to Oeneral
Buller, and the large sale ol buttonhole
portraits and favors of the General.
It is estimated that at least 50,000
people were present. This makes ii
the biggest thing of lhe kind which
has occurred for many years.
. Montreal Nov. 30.���Lord Aylmer
died at his home in Richmond, Que,,
list night,  at  un ad vanned age.    He
was the seventh baron of the line, and

The case of J. j. Smith was theii
takanup. The accused elected, through
hia counsel, Thos. O'Britn. to be tried
summarily. Geo. S. McCarter, of
Hevelstoke, noted as prosecutor, and
the evidence of J. Buekham and Bobt.
Landells waa laken. With consent of
thi defence, J. Pinkhum's evidence, al
given at tht preliminary trial, wai
allowed t* go in. With thia evidence,
which wai read by Mr. McCarter, the
prosecution closed the case.
Por the defence, Mr. O'Brien put id
no evidence, but addressed the court,
reviewing the case, claiming that Smith*
wae only trying to protect hia employer nnd preserve tbe peace, alto submitting that in view of the fact that
Smith had been Incarcerates! since th*
18th of November that a dismissal of
the case should be given, or ill any
���vent to allow the prisoner tp go od
suspended sentence.
Mr. McCarter maintained, on the
other hand, that the evidence showed
that Smith had an entirely different
motive then Mr.O'Brien claimed, but in
view of the fact that the effects of the
assault had not been of as serious A
nature as at first expected, ht wus of
the opinion that a suspended .intend
would be sufficient punishment.
Judge ForiH, in addressing thd
prisoner, told him it was only the request of the Crown prosecutor Ihlt
saved him (rom a severe sentence, al
the evidence showed lhat he (Smith)
waa a coward and a sneak, He told
hiin he bad bettor change his place of
residence as men of bis stamp were not
wanted iu British Columbia. He suspended sentence and gave prisoner into
tlio custody of sheriff until he could
complete his arrangements to leave!

One ol our Revelstoke contemporaries, referring lo the Big Bend country,
makes a statement ibat we cannot
allow to go unchallenged. It says
that on lhe davelo|>ineiit of lhat Motion tie fuiure of Uolden and Revil
stoke dejsends. The Herald, ior in it
the article apj.ears, ia |sossihly correci
as to Revelstoke, but in regard to th.
situation at Golden, the Big Bend ia
only one of the immensely rich districts whose development will add to
Golden's proipirity. We ara situated
in a very favorably position in this
regard, and Irom all indication! will
not have to wait long until that development takes place.
Tbe Bevtlitokt Herald, in itt lasi
isaue, professes to ba very much afraid
that John Houston, whom it describes
as an "obstinate" man, will be able to
force hi* ideaa of redistribution, as
published iu tho Nxlson Tribune, on
the Ooverninent at the coming session.
We think that the fears of the Herald
are without juat cause, {or the the reason that John Houston is not the onl}
member ol the local legislature. '-T.iere
are others," and th* proposed scheme
will not secure consideration ss it is
preposterous on its face. For a won
der the Herald has showed a few words
in paiae of the Hon. W. C. Wells to
slip ino its article, and we may assure
the Horald that when it cornea to
know him better it will recognize ihs
fact lhat he will lie able to defeat the
���chime ot Mr. John Houston in regard
to this matter.

N. W. M. P. Headquarters,
Begin*, Oot. 6, 1901.
Mr. D. McLean,  Millar, Moose Jaw,
D��r Sir,���At ths lunoheon tendered
t* their Royal Highn*.s*s the Duke
and Duchess of Cornwall and York at
Calgary on th* 28th nit., H. R. H. the
Duchess wat pleased to express htr
appreciation *f the bread, and instructed tbat a barrel ol Ihe flour from whioh
it wa* mad* be forwarded to H, M. S.
Ophir, at Halifax.   You will alao send
your account to the same addreai for
payment.     I  to day   telegraphist  to
Sergr. Smith, to hand you this order,
with instructions that the barrel must
bi shipped in snch a manner as to
reach Halifax by ths 17th imt.
Yours truly,
P.8.���The brsad was purchased from
Mr. J. W.  H.lliday, biker, Calgary,
who informed me that th* flour wa* of
your manufacture.
In reference to ths above order it
should be remembered that the flour
used in Calgary wai hia regular grade
of flour, and wben th* car waa ship
ped from the mill at Moose Jaw, no
thought of any part of it being used
for the refreshment of th* royal party
ever entered Mr. McLean'* mind. , This
fact makes the recommendation all tbe
more valuable, nnd Mr. McLean I*
justly proud of th* lucceis attained by
hii product.
The mill hai been in operation about
a year and haa a eapaoity of about 250
bbls. daily, and in connection with it
there ia an elevator of 70,000 bushel*
capacity. Th* wheat crop in the
Moose Jaw district thi* year hai bMn
a splendid one and Mr. McLean layi
tblri will la no deviation froul tb*
high ntndard ot hii flour.

tbe government, wot given ovtr to tbe
oare of the treasury department No special attempt hu boen made to preserve the
silk, and lt Is likely soon to decay and dis
appear.   The flag haa a history ol Its own.
When .Tubal Early made his raid In 1804
around Washington, the male employees
of tbe treasury department organised to
aid In defending the capital. The women
employees could not light, but tbey made
a silk flag and gnva lt to the treasury
April IS*, 1885, two nights befon the
assassination of President Linooln, the
treasury guard gavo an entertainment at
Ford's theater for oharltable purposes.
The theater was beautifully decorated. On
tbo boxei oeoupled two nights later by
President Lincoln and tba White House
party were tbe two flags mentioned. They
give tba boxes suoh a pretty appearance
that tbe manager of tbe theater nquotted
that the flags be allowed to remain until
tho night of tbo llth, when the president
was expected to be In attendance at a play.
The request was granted, and on the arrival of the president at tho theater the
fatal nlgbt ho conimontod with pleasure
on tbe decorations and cxproasod admiration for tbo flag wblcb bangs In tho treasury. In Jumping from tho box, alter tht
shooting of thu president, to tho stage lie-
low, one of tho spurs on Booth's boot
caught In tbe folds of the flog, causing
bim to lots his balance and fall, thereby
spraining hit leg. Tho rent In tho flag It
shown to visitor! and baa heen on exhibition for years.
Tbo treasury people tako as good can of
tbo flag as they can, but they are unacquainted with the sclontlflc way to do it.
The heat of the building Is causing th*
flag to decoy rapidly.���Exchange

and is the very latest and best obtainable. It cannot be bad except

King's autograph. Thit picture has the great merit of being the firat

biltorieal value that no other pioture can possess.
QUEEN ALEXANDRA.���An exquisitely beautiful picture of tbe
remarkably beautiful and good Queen Alexandra, also taken since the
King's accession to the throne. It is the same size as that ot the
King, the two forming a handsome pair of pictnrea that alone would

Among the telegraphic dispatches o
Nov. 27th win Ihe following from Toronto: '-James Field, of Milton, died
while undergoing an operation at the
Wtsteiu hospital. He was under the
influence of an anaesthetic and seemed
to be standing it favorably, but to
warde the. end he collapsed suddenly
and expired almost immediately."
The gentleman here referred to is the
father of our popular druggist, C. W.
Field. Iu conversation with Mr. J.
Dolmage, wbo knew the deceased
gentleman, we learn Ihr.t this wst the
third operation Mr. Field had found it
necessary lo undergo as a result of s
severe attack of typhoid fever which
he experienced this summer. The de
ceased gentleman waB nt th. time of his
death, gaoler of Hulton county, having
held that position for many yeara. He
was an old and respected resident of
Milton, having been engaged in the
tnauufncti.ro of pumps before receiving
lho aiipointmo.it of gaoler. His many*
factory wns leased to outside parties at
the time of bis death nnd in addition
heoivueil other valuable property in
Milton, He leaves a widow nnd two
children, our townsman, C. W. Field,
and a daughter who reside! at home.
Mr. Field has the sympathy of friendi
in Golden in this great sorrow that haa
clouded his Christmas.
