The Conservative party in Canada
eeetna moribund. One of the mott
trusted fellow-etstesmen of Sir John
McDonald, Hon. John Cottigan, haa
become no disgusted with the tactics ol
the party that hehas publicly renounced hie allegiance. Mr. Dodds, of Toronto, editor of the Sportsman, and
one of the ablest men who championed
the cauae of the Conservatives in the
west at last election has gone fcr
the leadtre of the putty, aud voices hit
sentiments as follows :
"The constituency of Brockville that
for over 20 years was true to Conservative principles has gone over to tho
reform vaults by a handsome majority,
and the Conservative who refuses to
accept the meaning of that loss is
"simply not worth arguing -cvith. It
means that the great bulk of Conservatives outside the members of the Mutual Admiration Society, who are
laying claim to be itt leaden, would
"rather eee the parry ont of power than
that it sliould be officered by the same
men who piny the traitor act in the
most crucial hours of its history.
'It means thut so long as it is officered by Foster, Haggart, Montague dt
Co., it will remain where it is now,
and though I have the highest respect
for the pluck aud Indefatigable energy
of Sir Charles tupper, not even he
with all his ability has a ghost of a
chance to succeed so long as his lieu
tenants are the men who knifed their
former leader and whose base tfeuchery
hns as much to do with the Conservative defeat at the general election al
the Manitoba school bill itself.
"Mr. Ceo E. Foster, the chief conspirator of the crew, showed himself
in Centre Toronto, and hundreds of
Conservatives refused to vote. He
journeyed to Lnmbtou county and the
majority against his party was much
larger than before. lie undertook to
redeem his own province of New
Brunswick, and he got wiped Ont so
thoroughly that he hadn't -enough
Conservatives electod to fill a four-
wheeled dray. Verily tho way of the
political traitor is a hard road to travel. Men may admire ability, but
when it is not allied to ordinary manliness and fair play, it will not go
down with the people. The Centerva-
live party is out of power, Rnd there
'it will 'remain through all tho yeare
tliat the traitors undertake to rule it."

Referring to tho action of Hon. Jos.
Martin* in regard to the Ludgate matter at Vunooutci-* the Winuipeg 'JVi-
bune iiiuariis: "It is plain that Ur.
Martin is not one ot those public men
who can bo influenced in their public
duty by considerations involving private business. , We huve had too many
instances of political leaders, supposed
to be promoting the public good, who,
when they hare had te choose between
their own pockets and the welfare of
the public, generally decide in favor of
tho former."

Mr. Graves, M.E., who is at present
on a visit to Golden, recently paid a
visit of inspection to the Porcupine
creek propertiea bonded by Messrs.
Yuill, Diimnaii, Lappttn and others to
the B. C. Alliance. He found the trail
excellent and went in and oat on snow

found the prospect to he a very promising one and the Company will start

'the lead is exported over three claims
and there it an extensive mineralised
-tone show ing on th'e surface to a width
of 125 feet. The lead proper has a
width of from 15 to 2b feet. The lead
Is strongly mineralised with galena,
grey copper and sulphide's. There is
very little ore showing on the summit
but an old glacial slide lias scooped
out a hole 500ft. by SUOft.. exposing
tho present excellent showings on the

of tont of ore as float. A railway Cau
be readily built to the property by an
easy grade up tho Heaver canyon and
a distance ot 15 miles from Beaver
station. From this and other pros-
ptF-cts which Mr. Graves has iieeu in
the district he thinks more of the prospects of North Eaat Kootenay as a cop.
per-gold belt than any other part of the
Province which ho has seen and expresses his intention of putting in his
stakes here. We are sure that the
foresight of Mr. Graves in this matter
will be rewarded with satisfactory
A Ploa'sant Picnic.
On the Qneon'i Birthday Mr, and
Mrs. G. Manual invited their neigh-
hours in Donald to celebrate the occasion by a picnic at their residence and

Pitts. Miss Millard, Mrs. Pensot- and
family, Miss Event, Mrs. McKav and
children, Mrs. McMillan and children,
Mrs. Stirrett and daughter, nud Mi*.
Refreshments were provided in abundance and un excellent programme arranged of sports and games, including
rocesaud jumping and urocquet. Everything passed off well, the guests enjoying themselves so thoroughly that they
will not soon forget the generosity and
hospitality with which they were entertained by Mr. and Mrs. Manuel ou

Messrs. Forrest and Leamy, wbo

Bast Kootenay Will Beat TMS
Mr. Simon D. Ord, well-known iri
tht Kootenayt. has been in London-,
where he gave an interview to The
Colonial Goldfields Gazette. Of th��
mines generally he said : " Rostltnd
aud the Boundary Country are at present the copper-gold strengholds.tb'OUgh
in East Kootenay und other parts of
the Province we have immense depot-
its of the same ort lying idle for wane
of capital. In Rossland the far-famed
La Roi and War Eagle have now taken
their place among the leading mines ol
the world, and the Centre Star it fair
to make a very great name. Thesi
aro not by fthy means th�� only mine*
in Rossland, while in the Boundary
and Kelson districts are many properties which are likely to hold their own
with the best. The Slocan is probabljr
the licbest silver-lead camp in the
world, though East Kootenay may. in
the neat future, oust it from the prond
position it now fills. As A rule, one
does not hear much about tho mines of
this class of ore, seeing thnt very many
of them havo paid from the 'grast
roots' consequently remaining in very
few hands, no outside capital being
needed for development. Some of thd
mines in this division would still keen
on working with Bilrcr at the unheard
of price of Is. per ounce. Returning
to East Kootenay, we find all classtt
of minerals���silver, lead, copper, goldj
and many others; grey copper (Tetra-
hedrite) being particularly plentiful;
In tho Crow's Nest district district we
have also immense deposits of cor!
which yielda an excellent cluse of coke."
Mr. Ord said we had to thank "thi
Americans for our start in raining.
Had we wailed for Britith capital wi
would still lie unborn as a mining centre, We aro only a baby yet. I grant
you, but a remarkably lusty ono." The
principal dr.iw.i��'.:k is mal-administrn-
tion of companies. "I could name
numbers of dreadful fiascos, not tho
fault of tho country, but solely duo to
mismanagement. If you like I will
tell you of one. Once upon a time a
company with a lut-go capital was
floated in Great Britain to take over A
prospect, in British Columbia. A road
was made to the so-ualled mine, but
beforo it was constructed there htd
been a fairly good pack trail. Afterwards, well, there was a to-called road
whicli was not even a good pack trail;
Tho said road was built by contract.
At one time there were more officials'
than minors (not counting the head
office). Machinery wus bought ana
delivered ut the station, but after iti
arrival the management canto to tht
conclusion that the property was not
sufficiently developed to warrant the
setting up of the machinery.
Tho result is thnt the machinery ii
there now rutting away. Thi. kind
ef thing dotio once or twice is tuffiolent
to give any country a bad name."
He was asked what kind ot a company would mott likoly suceeod: "I
answer most emphatically, a strong
development company, such ns tht)
British America Corporation, for instance. For such a concern, if propet1
ly conducted I here awaits a golden
harvest. Let them secure men whd
hare seen mining in the Held, and who
know the conditions and ores of thi
country the comjlatiy intend Workihg.
Eschow altogether the patent-leathered)
vellow-legginged nephew of the director. Leave the kid gloves nt hoine.
Give no high salaries until dividendi
are being paid. Get good propertiei
on option. By paying a small amount
down thit can be easily done. I'tit
men to work immediately. Develop
and keep on developing as long as the
property warrants. If not up to expectations throw up your option, Yoil
may have spent ��200, ��500, evert
��1,000. II the company lost 100 timet,
and ou the 101st throw won, it would
still be the gainer. However, with
good judgment one hns no need to fail
100 times.    No nor ten times."

Kidney diseases are the most in*
sidious of all diseases common to
humanity ; within the past few
years medical science haa made
wonderful strides in coping with its
ravages. South American Kidney
Cure has proved rich in healing
power, and every day testimony ia
piled up for its great curative qualities. Where kidney disease exists
it is generally indicated by certain
changes in the urine, such as mucus,
sediment, albumen, brick dust, acid
and blood���pain is not necessarily an
accompaniment, which only aggravates the insidious nature of it. Testing and experimenting bas disclosed
the fact that the passing through
theso organs of the solid particles
in tho ordinary course of circulation
do in a remarkably short while clog
up, grind out and impair them so
that the functions of these organs are
not performed and disease lays hold
on the patient with a ruthless hand.
Kidney diseases require a solvent-
South American Kidney Cure is a
solvent���it is a kidney specific���

tested by eminent medical authorities on kidney diseases, and proved and testified to by
them as the surest and safest cure for all diseases of the kidneys and bladder. It's a

Northwest. Farmer, Killed.
Gaiusboro, N. W. T., May IH.���A
yonng inuu named Robt. Kirby, hatching ou a homestead a few miles south
of here, was found this morning buried
nnder a part of hia stable that had
fallen in. It is supposed the aooident
happened on Monday night as this was
tbe last seen of him nntil today when
some of his neighbors went to see if
anything was wrong, and discovered
the body. Two horses that were in the
stable were uninjured.
A man may talk of. disdaining
physical strength and prowess until
Doomsday, but the  fact
remains that he cannot
look nt a picture of an
old-time knight, magnificent in his physical proportions, dauntless in
his  physical courage,
and    armed,    ready
aud eager for a contest
to the death with nny
comer, without a thrill
of  admiration.
Mental  superiority   is   desirable
a ti d   admirable,
but is the "game
worth  the can*
die," when it is
won  at the  ex-
fense of pbys*
cui  health aud
strength ?
The unhealthy
man may gain the
pity and even the admiration of men aud
women, but it is n question whether such a
man ever thoroughly gains their respect.
The man whose arteries bound with the
rich, red blood of health carries with him a
force and an intensity that command respect, even though he be slightly inferior
mentally to the weak, nervous man. While
oo medicine in the world will add an inch
to a man's stature, there is one famous
medicine that will fill the veins and arteries with the rich, red, bounding blood of
perfect health. It is Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, ll is the greet blood-
maker and blood-purifier. When the blood
is pure aud rich and red and plenty, and
filled with the life-giving elements that
nourish every tissue of the body, it is impossible for a man to suffer from ill-health
of any description. When every little
blood-vessel in the lungs quivers with the
rush of healthy blood, it is impossible to
have unhealthy lungs. When the walls of
the stomach are nourished with healthy
blood, dyspepsia aud indigestion are impossibilities. When the liver is supplied
with healthy blood it is bound to be active.
The skin that is nourished with healthy
blood will be clear and fresh and glow with
health.   " Discovery " is sold by druggists.
Mr. Isaac K. Downs, of Spring Valley, Kock-
lantl Co., N. Y., writes: " For three years I suffered from that terrible disease, consumption, I
hnd wasted nway to n skeleton. To-day I tip
the scales at iS;, and am well and strong. The
' Golden Medical Discovery' cured me."

many of whom are Americans, were in

She Wanted (o Know.
Of women who wear black some women always have nn nir of recent be-
renvement whicli misleads tbe ordinary
mind. At a railway station in this state
nut long ago a tall woman robed in
deep black, accompanied by n yonng
woman in colored garb, sat waiting for
a train. The station matron hovered in
the vicinity, evidently with something
on her mind, and finally beckoned to tho
young woman, who went to see wbat
was wanted.
"Has she got a corpse witb her 1" tbe
station matron asked.
"Corpse*" the yonng woman exclaimed, looking over ber shoulder in
glinstly fright. "Who's got a corpse
with her?   What do yon meant"
"Don't be scared, lady," the matron
exclaimed. "Most of 'em that travels
in deep monrnin has corpses on tbe
train. 1 jnst wanted to know, if yonr
lady had a corpse with ber."
"Goodness, nol" said tbe young woman. "Her husband's been dead 50
years. Yon ought to be ashamed to
shock people that way. Don't you ever
treat ine that way again."
The station matron looked disappointed, and tbe yonng woman went
back and sat down without even feeling at liberty to tell the lady in black
what had happened. ��� Indianapolis

"The president thought a moment

Anelenr Chain..
In an interesting article on the subject of chains an English writer points
to the fact that notwithstanding the
frequent mention of chain in the Bible
the article is comparatively new The
tame author says
"Some authorities give the Britons
credit for originating the cable chain
because Julius Ctesur is recorded ns
having been unable to cut the cables of
the Gaul's vessels, 'as they were made
of iron.' This muy have been a chain in
the present acceptation of tbe term,
bnt it is donbtfnl. because the first patent for chainmaking was obtained in
Englund in 1694 by u blacksmith named
Philip White. The patent was for 14
yeurs. and in consideration of it White
hud to pay ��5 in lawful money yearly
'ut the Exchequer, Westminster, utt
tbe Feast of the Blessed Virgyn and
Saint Micbell the Arcbangell by even
and eunl process
"His patent Is described as follows
'A way for the wearing of shipps witb
iron chuynes by finding ont tbe trne
heating (pre)pareing and tempering of
lyron for that (pnr)pose and that he hath
nowe attayned to the true vse of the
said chaynes and that the same wilbe
for the great saveing of cordage and
safety of shippers and will redonnd to
good of onr Coinon Wealth.' "

Tomatoes and Cancer.
A few years ago an eminent London
physician, on my mentioning to him
tomatoes as an article of diet for myself, said, "Whydo yon eat tomatoes?'
I said, "Why not?" Hesaid: "Well, 1
think that there are grave reasons for
thinking it possible that eating tomatoes increases, if it does not produce,
tbe liability to cancer. I do not say positively that It does so."
It strikes a layman as a fact that
the consumption of tomatoes has increased as mnch in England of lute
years as has cancer. ���Pall Mall Gazette.

The Blood is the very essence of life.
As it courses through the system it carries
with it, if pure and rich, nutrition to every
cell in the body. If impure, it spreads
disease. If thin and watery, it fails to

The Funny Done.
A roan who fractured his funny bone
tonclndes that it is not a fnnny matter.
He said: "The displacement of the
olecranon is accompanied by disablement of the whole arm for a long while.
Webster describes the point as follows
'The large process at tbe proximal end
of the nlna which projects behind the
articulation witb the humerus and
forms the bony prominence of the elbow. ' I have it with me. I fell on the
ice in 1873 and broke off my left funny
bone. It hurt, bnt I did not know wbat
had happened for months, nnd then Dr.
Henry Fish of Fargo told me. It was
too late to do anything then except exercise to bring my muscles into condition.
"A new development set in then,-and
the lower part of my forearm became
flat, while the upper muscles developed.
At present I can pnll or lift as mncb
witb that arm as I conld at any time,
bnt I cannot strike or push with it and
cannot exert downward pressure with
it at nil, unless I hold my arm rigid
and put the weight of my body npon it.
I can scarcely hold n sheet of paper
upon my desk, and for fully 12 months
I could not nee my left arm at all. Perhaps it was because I did not have
surgical attention soon enough. Recently I had a radiograph made, and the
fragment of bone was clearly shown lying loosely in the joint. After the fracture two splinters protruded from the
skin and were removed."

reading the Presbyterian Review I read
of a cure through the us* of Dr Williams' Pink Pill*, in th* case of a man
who had not beeu expected to recover
and thi* prompted me to give thi*
mtdicin* a trial. The action ie my
case did not **em to be epeedy and I
wat using ray fifth box befor* any decided improvement was noted, but by
the tine I had ustd eight boxe* I wat
atherougbly wtll man. Sloe, that
time my general health haa been th*
v*rv best and I have io tignt of th*
old troublt. I make thia etatement
voluntarily, because I think it theduty
of thote cured to put other* it th* possession ot the means of obtaining renewed health and I am satisfied Dr.
Williams'Pink Pills will do all that
is claimed for thein if given a trial.
These pills cure not bv purging the
system as do ordinary medioine*, but
by enriching the blood and strengthening th* nerve*. They cur* rheumatism, soiatica, locomotor ataxia, paralysis, htart trcublea, arytipela* and all
forma ot weakness. Ladies will find
them an unrivalled mtdicin* for all
ailment* peculiar to tha stx, nitorlng
health and vigor, and bringing a rosy
glow to pal* and sallow ohetk*. Thir*
ii no other medicine "juit a* good."

thought it wat 'all up with mt.' I
"I uted different remedies, bnt got    ]
no good  from  any of  them, until a \
friend recommended    Dodd'e   Kidney
Fill*. ' |
"I had no idea they wonld help m��,
a* I had  been  disappointed so often, , '
but I dtcidtd to try thorn.    Tb* fir*t j :
