Anderson had a supply of ballots with

One* of the-grekt.surprjses of tiie Jate

two members in- support of the Liberal
party.'' In view Of the recent shocking
disclosures-)'the wonder is that- it returned, any. So Systematic, flagrant
and widespread was the corruption
resorted to by the .Conservatives .that
Mr. Hugh J. Macdonald aud Mr.' N.
Boyd have been forced.to vuca.e, their
���eats. By an organized and unblushing resort to ballot-box stuffing the'
will qf the,people was nullified, and

Oil Fields of kaat Kootenav
One of the various resorces of East
Kootenay wo'iing for development is
the petroleum found in the Flathead
valley, in the south ens'.ern portion of
tbis distinct.    This is a section of tbe
count, y but little known, and . is separated f oin the remainder of the dis-
liict by a hi-jh run-je of mountains.
The ne'u.-al outlet   of  the  valley   is
down the Flathead River into Montana
and the neatest railroad is the Great
Northern.       Some  y- .is ago ni.eu-
tion    was   called   to    this   section
itY ou;*h the finding of crude oil in the
possession of some Stony Indians who
annually bunted in this valley, and
tbey were induced to show some miners wheie they obtalued the oij, which
they (the Indians) were in the habit of
using as a medicine for complaints of
all kinds.   Tbe sui 'aire indications are
good, and two different qualities of oil
.have been {Obtained.   On   Kishneena
Creek, a short distance north of the
international boundary line,   a   black
oil similar to the Pennsylvania and
Ohio oil is found    But on .Sage creek
some eight miles north, tliere is found
au oil that is nearly pure of a light
yellow color, which  will  burn   in   a
lamp as it comes   from  the ground.
Close by there is natural gas escaping
from the bedrock which burns freely
ou ignition.    Some of this oil, sent to
the Geological  Museum  at  Ottawa,
caused  considerable  excitement   and
comment and was pronounced a fraud
on account of its purity.   Dr. Selwyn,
head of tbe department, made a special
trip to the valley end was surprised to
find the oil -ienu'iie, aud also that this
oil was found in the Cumbrian formo-

Ht-AiMi-tien ef the Bsport That Senator
Cox and Kobtrt Jaffray are Interaited.
Ottawa, Jan 22. ���It was denied that
Senator Cox and'Robert Jaffray had
secured the British Columbia Southern
railway charter in British Columbia,
but the report is firmly believed. Col.
Baker oue of the chief owners ol British Columbia Southern charter said the
task was hopeless without Federal
government aid, and he realized tbe
faot that the land grant alone would
not enable the company to make such
financial arrangements as would secure
the completion of the road. The syndicate embraces prominent capitalists
in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.
Hon. Mr. Cox is known to be an energetic business man, and realizing the
importance to Canada of the completion of the line to Lethbridge, by way
of Fort Macleod iuto the Kootenay, a
project iii which lhe government is
equally interested, it is not likely negotiations looking to an eailey start being made on - the undertaking will
ei tber be wearisome or ' protracted.
Senator Cox will command the ear of
tha administration in this mutter, and
at the forthcoming seusion of parliament, such lej-islution may be enacted
as will ensure an early start being
made and the speedy completion of au
all-rail route from the east.

West Chester County. Arthur Palmer, during a fit of insanity, shot his
brother, Leonard-Palmer, killing him
almost instantly and fatally wounded
his mother- snd sister. He. began, a
general fusilade, first turning the
weapon on his sister Gertrude. He
fired two shots at her, both of which
took effect, one in the abdomen and tha
other in the right arm. He then shin
his mother, three bullets entering her
body, two in the back and one in tbe
side. At this junction Leonard Palmer, who it is believed lieuj-d the shots
while working in the barn run into
the house. The insane man met him
with several shots, pne of the bullets
striking him lairly in the forehead.
Gertrude, the sister, managed to escape from the heuse and fied, with
blood streaming froni her wounds, to
the house of A. G Deforests, a couple
of hundred yards from Palmer's bouse.
Tbe people at this place also beard the
shots and a farm hand ran to Palmer's

Two days after Butler sailed from

An  American's View.
Prof. Bernard Bisby, of Detroit,  in
the course of a lecture on the life and
times of Marie Antoinette, held before
a large audience recently, said, among
other things, that  the  condition  of
affairs which led  np  ta the French
revolution wns almost identical with
that   prevalent   to-day in the United
States.  There money was king, people
worshipped  the golden  calf,   public
morality was at a  low  ebb,   religion
was losing  its  hold  on   ths people,
monopolies controlled ths government
and the millionaire* waxed rioher and
richer on the toil of the ill-paid laborer.   Some American instltntions were
rotton to the core,   The whole fabric
of the union needed overhauling.  God
would one day-all the nation to never*
account.   Meantime, he said, a gigantic strike waa opening snd would pro
bably occur this spring,  shaking  ths
industrial structure to its centre snd
producing  widespread   disaster   snd
rain.   Dr.   Bisby'*  remarks  created
quite a sensation.
