The Ottawa Citizen under cover of
doubtful professions of solicitude for
the interests of the South African
veterans, is doing its outmost to depreciate the benefits to be   derived  by

It is well known that the interprising
Western settler needs, or thinks ht

When he nas hornesteaded the 160 acres
given to him by the Government, he

Mr. Borden opened his campaign the
other day. Those who have been
waiting with anxiety, to see on what
he bused his claim to public support will
now have an onportunity of satisfying
themselves. The Conservative organ*
are telling us that it is a time for a
change at Ottawa. Assuming that it
is, it is very important that the people
should know what the nature of the
change is to be, What does Mr.
Borden stand for? What does he propose co do to justify a change?
We turn for enlightenment ta the
report of his opening address. We find
that he devoted the greater part of his
time to the Colchestor election revelations and to a rehearsal of the scanda
charges against the present government.
Charges of scandal are of sufficient
importance to occupy the attention of
even Mr. Borden; but the country has
a lready had a surfeit of scandal talk,
What good is it doing? The Conservatives might talk till doomsday without convincing anyone that their claims
to superior political morality are anything more than election talk. People
who listen to this talk are compelled, in
spite of themselves, to recall that the
Conservatives had a very fair trial of
office and a very good opportunity of
showing the superiority of their politii-al
morals. How does their record compare with their present day pretensions?
The test of a party's capacity and its
purity is not the claim set up while in
opposition, but its record while in office.
It is noticeable that the Conservatives
are not inviting at this time an inspection of their record while in office. It
may be that black sheep have found
their way into the Liberal fold. It
would be a strange thing if this were
not so. m The Liberals are liable to
accidents as well as other people. It
way be that there have been some extravagances and irregularities in the
expenditure of the public money. It
would be a strane-e thing if there were
not. Considering the services the
Liberal party has rendered and the
amount of public money "that has pass
ed through the government's hands il
Would be a remarkable thing, indeed, if
no opportunity were afforded the
watchful critic to raise an occasional
cry. Reasonable Liberals do not claim
that 'here have not been mistake-, and
perhaps worse, during the twelve years
of office. What they do claim is that
the government is entitled to credit for
a strong, sensible, business-like administration of the affairs of the
country, that the remarkable development of the country since 1896 is in a
large measure the outcome of the
Liberal policy, and that whatever mistakes may hav.- been made are insignificant in comparison with the splendid
results achieved.
But a country cannot be governed by
scandal talk. It is easy enough to find
fault. People who can do nothing else
are often very successful in doing that.
What have the Conservatives to offer?
Turn again to Mr. Borden's opening
.speech. We find that he had at one
time an alternative to the government's
transcontinental railway policy. But
what of that? He has no thought of
applying his alternative now. The
whole country is committed to the construction of the transcontinental railway and if the Conservatives were in
olfice tomorrow they would simply attempt, with whatever shill they might
be able to command, to carry out the
policy which the government has inaugurated. What is the use of talking
now about an alternative policy for a
work that is well under way?
The fact is the Conservatives are
without anything fit to offer to intelligent electors. Either their leaders are
utterly lacking in constructive ability,
or the Liberals have covered the ground
so effectively that there is nothing left
for them to do. The most the Conservatives can claim is that in regard to
all the great questions be?ore the country they are thoroughly in accord with
the Liberal policy. Their newspaper
champions do not hesitate to boast that
this is so. The speech with which Mr.
Borden has opened his campaign is an
admission that it is so-Sentinel Review.

At about three o'clock last Thursday
afternoon, a Scotchman by the name of
John Mickie, was drowned in the Carbonate Channel.
Mickie, in company with three other
men were engaged in driving logs
through the Carbonate Channel into
the Columbia River, for the Columbia
River Lumber company., when Mickie
slipped and fell between the logs, as
soon as the accident was noticed his
companies tried to save him, but in
vain, the logs were passing slowly 6ver
the spot where the unfortunate man
fell in. They tried to stop the logs,
but this proved a failure.
Word was at once wired to Golden,
and Coroner Buckham, in company with
Constable Tennant left immediately for
the scene of the accident.
The body was recovered the next
day, and brought into town, where it
was buried Monday.
Coroner Buckham, decided that an
inquest was unnecessary.
k  Frightful  Train   Wreck
■ Helena, Sept. 29. Burlington passen
gea train No. 16, which left Helena for
the east by way of Billings, at midnight, collided with a freight train near
Young's Point Friday afternoon.
Nineteen passengers are reported
killed and many injured. The entire
train jumped the rails.
A relief train is now being made up
at Livingstone and will bring the dead
and injured to that place.
The trains were scheduled to pass at
Young's Point, but flagman of the
freight could not get a warning to the
passenger train in time because of the
falling snow. The express car teles-:
coped the smoker, and in this most of
the casualties occured, none escaping.
The express messer.ger, R. W. Le-
duce, of Spokane, escap.-d with a few
bad bruises. He found himself covered with express and baggage and managed to crawl out through a small hole.
That he was not killed seems marvellous.
The passenger train was in charge
of Conductor T. M. Griffin, of Billings,
Mont., who is uninjured. Engineer Joe
Bessinger, of Billings, after setting the
brakes, jumped through the cab window and is not seriously hurt.
Among the injured is John Wagner,
