He thought It would bs admitted by
Itt people of British Columbia that
thu tr* got j* e aatisfaotery aondi-

and get clothes, thtn took all tbe real.
Tbat la a poor psJicy on the part of
the CPU. from their ewn atand-
point. They have made a aerious
mistake in taking ao much out of the
people. By encouraging tbem to take
rleke in their business snd develop
tbeir properties more and islv* tb*m
more profit, Western Canada wonld
begin to prosper and she C. P, B
would bave made mora money than
.they have, an thev control the situation. Although 1100,000,000 ot the
people', money wa* Invested in the C.
P.B. th* people have no Interest in it.
They have no oonsrol of any kind. Mr
Martin (aid be had every reason to feel
friendly to the C.r.R. from a personal
at...dpoi.it end th.y hnd alwaya treated him nlotly. Yet he must as a publio man look at the question from the
people'* atendpoint. and it w.a hi.
duty to ttk* it up tnd deal with it in
lb* interest, of th* people of Britieh
C-ilombia. The policy of the present
government ia one calculated to belp
siut th* people of the provinoe. The
people of Canada hav* been adopting t
wrong policy In -jetting milwaya built.
Th* ooly relief for the people of Cauada
I* (or tbem to build and run the road*
themselves. In this way, also,. the
roads were saved from havisig to pay
heavy intereat on promoter, profits. Ir
would al-so proven: h-ii**. corponttiossa
frosn taking part in election campaign.;
end through time would be a pretty
decent asset.   He called attention  to
small fight disallowing railway ssha��. the UuthjU-Dar.ulw.-v in  Amerlcsr,
ao matter how much loa. there
might have been tt fins, but tbnt sooner or later it becoming a paying proposition. Il would bs hard to pick out a
i-iolier portion of resources thsn we
hare iu this province (applause.) The
800 miles of railway wbich th* government intended to build first would be
t profitable invtoiuent, end through
time it wss intended to have a perfect
net work of r.llway. throughout Ih*
province. He spoke of a railway up th*
Cols.inbiis Valley a* t paying investment tnd would develop the oountry,
but tlte people could not expect it im-.
mediately. It bae been suggested bv
our critics tbat tbe government oould
not btrrow snonsy for tha 800 tniles of
rsilwty. It wat calculated that thar.
road will cost between eix and eight
million. Mr. Turner could borrow
111,000,000 and give every cent of it
away, and there wa* no justification
tbat the present government oould not
borrow money whore it was to be
aetebliahed a* a'permanaut asset. The
0, P. B. build their branoh lime on
porrowsd money. Aa t buainees corporation thty never have toy money
on bend fer. thtlr profit! are divided
among tb* sbareboldere. They say in
addition it I* all very well for the
C. P. B. to borrow money as they hav*
tb* confidence of the money institutions
of tbe world. Bate of interest is a
test of UnKUcUl strength. Tlse provinoe of British Columbia ia therefore
much stronger than the C. P. B. aa we
borrow money at a considerable lower
rate than th* 0. P. K. If th* peopl*
of thia province will only stand by the
government a few years we will find
ourselves in e position to build railways. No country ever adopting that
method haa *ver abandoned it. Railways ara profitable and Instead of *
burden ire an tsaet.
Iu conclusion Mr. Martin stid ht wis
gild to hive spoken to e Golden audi*
���no*. He had suade * complete tour
throughout tht provinot tnd
hty* found thit the ptopl* ore
most nriously Instrestod in tn* present
election. When tbe p.-eeent government
took offloe * howl of Indignation went
through tht provinoe tbtt Martin had
no follower., The people an beginning to find out that he had ft whole lot
of follower* in the provinoe (applause)
who btlisrtd tbit tbl promises aide
woald bt otrried out (ipplinsw) ae the
government htd tht masses is this
province it it* hick. No doubt there
ia t atroug oppoeition .pf cliques end
corporations. Tbty tr* better against
us ai they foil that Martin is t das.g-
erous mau (applaute) and lbs C. P. B.
ia leering no atone unturned to leat
tbe government ia thi* election but
tbey htvt net the sympathy of she
poople. (Appltnn.) They bava bought
the New WsMimfnittw Columbian tnd th* Bossltnd Miner. But
such influence I* dead if owned by the
0. P. B. (Applause.) But tin present
government will carry out its promises
if tha peopl* express their belief lu us
on th* tith of Jnne.
Th* two candid.lee, Wells and
Armstrong, spoke end Martin replied.
Quite a atormy time followed between
the two candidate., much to the tm-
musement of thn tudlence, but as we
expect to b* able to report several
stormy meeting* before election day we
witb hold their remark, for t"b*pres*nt
Ths meeting then gav* thia* cheer*
for Martin and tho candidate!, after
which God Save tho Queen wt* *ung,
ltd by Mr, Arutuosg.
To the Electors of North East Kooteqay.
Bavtng received the namlhiitlon of a large portion of the Eleotor*
of thia Diasrict as Candidate in the Liberal-Conservative intereat for
the Legielatl'-e Assembly at the forthcoming General Eieotion, I have the
honour hereunder to place before you my views on somo of the mote
important Political issues of the day.
In order to inspire confidence in the Investing public and to ensure
to the Provinoe the prosperity which is its due, it is of the first import-
tnce that the present state of pas-lysis and chaos, wbioh unfortunately
exleta in the Legislative Assembly at Victoria, should bo replaced by oue
of business activity aod order. This can only be effected by putting in
power a body of praotical men having the complete confidence of the
people and a thorough kuowledge of their wants, and being bound togethsr
by a community of interests wns>h will keep them a solid party, with a
definite policy, and one leader, after Mr. Msr.it. and his Abortive Cal.ii.et
have been defeated and discredited. Tl.e only solid party now in tbe field
Is tho om to wbioh I belong snd which I pie 'go myself to support.
The first plank on our platform is so actively aid the construction
of trails and road, in 'he uudeveloi��d portions of the Province. My
Intimate knowledge of this District would enable sue to make known your
requirements in thi* respect; and tbe development of North Kast Kootenay
will always be my chief aim. I believe it would be possible to devise a
scheme whereby the mineral claims of one particular section might bo
madt to contribute a share of the cost of any trunk road which would
benefit tbem al) - and I am in favour of such a scheme.
I am opposed to the granting of a bonus to any Kailway Company
which doea not give ihe Government control of its rates and an option of
I am in favojr of, and would support, any practical scheme whereby the agricultural resources of the Province would n-eei.'i> Rssistnusie
from she Governsnent; so that as far is possible each District might i-su'so
the supplies required for i's own mines, and thus roup the full benefit of
the development of ita mineral resources.
The Agency of the Province in London, which, under the "penny-
wise and pound-fooiish" policy of the late Administration, bas become
restricted and Ineffective, should be. at once, placed on a more efficient
basis, with a representative, properly paid, who would be capable of supplying reliable information to Bi-isi-b Capitalists; ao that tbey would
realise how favorable a field this Province offers for profitable investment.
In regard to tbe Eight Bonr Law, any amendments which would
render the law acceptable to both Miners and Mine Owner* would receive
rav strongest aupport. The amending ol this law is of vital importance
to the Province and must be taken in hand by men who have at least
some practical knowledge of Miners and Mining.
Hospitals nnd Medioal Men in she outlyinp; portions of the Province
should receive more generoue assistance from the Government tben they
do at present.
Every effort should be made to discourage Oriental immigration.
In conclusion. I wo.'Id say t.hst J a.n opposed to any la^ittlatlon
such as tho Alien Act. which tends to estrange Capital and hinders the
development of our resources.
I ara NOT in favour of "the abolition of tho 8200.00 deposit for
Candidates for tho Legislature"
I have the honour to be, Gentlemen,

Walt nntl! morning?
No; Arnold Friese did not relish the
Idea. The Berlin life waa too distracting
to permit one to dwell long upon any one
thought, however cherished.- Bo Arnold
resolved to leave tbat very evening.
Arrived at the station, he hoarded the
train and, posKesslug himself uf an empty conch, took bis seat at a window nnd
gawd at Ihe throng outside.
The platform was already pretty well
crowded. Were all these people whom
he beheld, laden with valises, bandboxes,
satchels and what not, were they to enter
his-coach and disturb him with their bun
tie ond noise? He would so gladly he
alone with his thoughts.
How to secure himself from hitntden-tV
Ha. an idea! If he should pny for all
eight seats lu the coach? Plainly a ntag
olficent scheme, only a trifle costly.
A gold piece in the band of the porter)
No; thnt secured him nolhiug, for In cnxc
any one entered tbat personage had m
right to prevent htm.
Suddenly a wild Idea Hashed througd
his bead, a remembrance of his Kt.uleiii
Vktor's trick!
Why had he not thought of ll before':
That most unique device to which Vli to:
bad often resorted to secure n r;tHtvn>
coach to himself and which had never yet
been known to fnll.
Tba aald Victor wonld find lilmxelf h
an unoccupied coach and as soon u* mo
one offered to enter would roll hti eye* It
fury, loll bis tongue and make erery con
celrnhle grimace nud m��ttm.. Th*. wmili
be passeuger of course took lilm for nn in,
nana person and sought hastily nnothel
"Now for Victor's trick!" thouglil Ar
nold, and let tbe deed follow the thought.
The remedy Indeed proved to he a
npeedy oue and put to flight In rapid site
esslon two stout ladles, an elderly geu
*leman and finally an entire family, om
slating of father, mother and daughter
All of these beat a rapid retreat, giving
Arnold little or no time to study the fen
turn of his discomfited victims.
Tl)c whistle shrieked, tbe train started.
"Hurrah for Victor's trick!" thought Ar
nold triumphantly, and, comfortably
stretched upon tho cushions of his sent,
he waa soon loat In sweet, dreamy reter
��� ������������������
It waa nearly midnight wben the train
arrived. Tba best tbat Arnold could do
at auch an honr waa to obtain lodging for
tha rest of the night
Tbe next morning, having madt a care*
tnt toilet, dnring wbich he made a moat
profound Impression npon the barlter In
attendance, he started out for a stroll.
Arnold resolved to paas tba tlma until
evening In seeing the r'tbta; but, too
much concerned with himself to enjoy In
fnll .tranquillity of spirit tht bentitlful
architectural works of tht city, he contented himself with a promenade through
tha streets, during which he faxed ntten-
Uvtly at tvtry ont ht met in hope of

"Tbat ta iht," bt wonld think aa upon

a graceful figure. And tben ht would
find himself fact to fact with a well
dressed old spinster or a blushing maiden
who telt faltered at having made inch a
marked Impression upon anch a Iihui.
some young gallant.
At length tht hour of 0 drew near. HU
tltnt had come. Hastening to his bole!,
Arnold attired himself for the evening
and1 itarted for tht dwelling of Herr
Bitttechntldtr, j
Having been annoattctd tht sertnht ltd
him into tht parlor, when ht found Herr
Brettschnelder,  hia wife and daughter /
waiting hU arrival. The young lady waa
Indeed beautiful Tbt photograph had
not done her justice.   '
With a smile of welcome all three advanced to greet tht vlaltor, when suddenly a cry burst simultaneously from tht
lips of each:
"Uy God! Tht insane man wt met on
the train yesterday!"
In a moment Arnold trasped the situation.   The family consisting of father,
mother and daughter whom be bad driv-%
en In terror from tht coach must havt
been tht Brettschueidera!
He laughed nervously In endeavor to m
better the situation and at once proceed- #
ed to five the necessary explanation.
"My good friends, I see the cause of
your alarm. An awkward blunder of
mlue, but when I havt explained tbt plot
of the comedy"���
"A dangerous cast," whispered Herr
Brettschnelder to his wife in tones plainly audible. ''When an Insane person attempts to explain bla conduct. It Is a sura
sign of bis Incurability."
Tbe young lady had hastily sought refuge behind ber father and wu trembling
all over.
"Oh, I s km ure you* air, 1 am not dangerous," observed Arnold In a tone of
Irony. "1 havt not yet Injured a slngto
human soul, and tf you will do mc tbt
bouor to listen to me a minute you shall
ste tbat 1 can at least speak rationally.
I see that Victor*! trick bas been tbe unfortunate cauat of this misunderstanding."
"Victor's trick r
"Certainly; an old friend, whose example I have Imitated only too well. However, ht carried It farther than I did. Ht
used to remove bis boots and place thom
before the door uf tbe coach."
"He Is indeed quiet for a moment; still
he may break out ut uuy time," 'whinpored Herr Brettsvhnolder to his wife.
"Send quietly for the police."
"Meln berr," turning to his guest,
"judging from your description, thia Victor must bave been a charming, amusing
young fellow, nnd 1 would very inurh Ilka
to mako bis acquaintance," ,
"In the act?" queried Arnold, taking
this for a witticism. "Would you really
like to meet bim ?"
"Moat certainly. Such a fantastic, talented person! I would like to have him
tor a friend," replied Herr Brett Schneider. "One must agree witb him lu everything. Thnt is tho only way to avoid a
crisis," whispered be to tbe rest as bu left
the Boom.
Although assured that he had succeeded In convincing his host as to his tctnity,
Arnold could unt hut feel thnt Ills urAvnl
had beon grotesque. The young lady
might well hesitate lu accepting bin suit.
He must therefore at nuy iwt endeavor
to remove this bad impression.
"My micli! hns MiMikon much of you,
Fruulelli HiettMclmeiiler." he begun.
"Indeed, sir?"
"And If you could ouly know In tvhnt a
flattering nuuiuei- ho spoke."
"Your uncle Is indeed all too kind."
"And you all too modest, for If all the

Arnold turned nnmud in surprise.   Perhaps some visitors or relutlves ot tlm*
family.   Al nny rate there wns a frlemlly
look upon their fnoi's au they advanced
toward hiin.
But Arnold was nol allowed llnictafo
carry his thoughts further, tor nl a sign
from Herr Brettiu-liudder Hie threo
atrangern seised him.
"But, meln herr," protested Arnold In
ntter naliJtilidiniont. "Meln herr, what la
tbo meaning nf all this?"
Wasted effort! He waa promptly handcuffed, bound and transported from tht
room by six strong ui ins.
"Thank God!" ejaculated Herr Brett-
Schneider as lie behold tho removal of hit
strange guest. "Now both be and ourselves are secure."
"It Is almost Incredible," snld the
daughter. "Such n charming young mnn!
And ouly to think bow highly his uncle
spoke of him!"
"What use la it all, my child? Very
likely the poor fellow hns (hvoiiio suddenly insane while traveling. Such things
happen every now and tben."
"A pity!" thought tbe young girl
"Such ii pity!* In bis rational moments
there wna In bis manner something sa
aym pathetic!"

bad telegraphed tbe sad news, hiis-it'iicd

"My pw��r boy, can It bo possibleV" cried
he. In tears. "Such a sudden misfortune!"

In a few minutes all was clear to tbt
nncle, and an Irrepressible laugh brokt
from bis lips.
Such a misunderstanding!
Indeed, the whole proceedings wore so
seriocomic that Arnold fell to laughing
heartily over bis adventure.   "*
"And now," asked his uncle, "shall wt
tee tbe Brottschnelders?"
"Certainly. I owe tbem an explanation. And, besides, tht da lighter Is lore*
ly���lovtlyl She will furgive me, I know,
when sht learns (hat I set the whole

Arnold Is now tbe fortunate basbnnd of
his heart's idol, and both make frequent
visits during tbe yenr to tbeir parents In
