IRE IN CANADA'S  PROSPERITY-—BY VOTING FOR SMITH CURTIS ON NOVEMBER   12TH.
Editorial   Notes.
Say, what about that "reduced
majority" of which we heard so much
a few weeks ago. Perhaps some job-
hunter in the Conservative Club has
got it up his sleeve!
For Sale. Rent, or to give away!
A large cotton sign, framed and in
complete order, bearing the talisman
"Conservative Committee Rooms."
As the owners no longer have its
anticipated use, this "thing of beauty"
and its attachments will be sold, rented
or given away regardless of cost. N.B.
It would make excellent material to
start a bonfire on the night of Smith
Curtis*' election.
For further particulars apply to any
prominent local Conservative,—if you
can find one.
WHAT   THE   VANCOUVER     "PROVINCE"
SAID.
From .the leading Editorial in the
Province of the 27th, we clip the following:
THE RESULT IN THE COUNTRY.
Sir Wjlfred Laurier's prediction that
he would be returned with a majority
of 45 has apparently been justified by
the result of yjsterday's elections.
With the details at hand there can be
little|doubt that he will have a good
w_ rising support in the next parliament
not such an overpowering majority perhaps as he received in 1904, but one
more than sufficient to assure to him
complete mastery of the situation at
Ottawa. He can claim, without possibility of contradiction, that the Canadian public has expressed confidence in
him and in his government and has
given him a commission to pursue during another five years a policy identica'
with that which has marked his administrative conduct for the past decade. In elections the verdict of the
people is final and the verdict pronounced yesterday cannot be mistaken.
It is difficult to believe that the country
would have declared itself so emphatically had it credited the charges, of
maladministration imquted to the government, and it might under ordinary
circumstances be presumed that these
charges were discounted by the people
as campaign ammunition.
This coming as it does from the representative of pure and unadulterated
Conservativism in B. C. is a most remarkable as well as a very true admission. The Liberal press all along
has contended that the charges against
the Government were nothing but
"campaign ammunition," but it was
not supposed that even_ after a good
spanking the prodigal boy of the
"Province" would admit it. A little
punishment is not a bad thing after all
for an unruly child.
'Ihe Coast papers say that the heavy
fog which settled down over their cities
on the night of election Was so dense
that it spoilt all the fireworks and processions. That's nothing! They should
have seen the fog-cloud that settled
down on our local Conservatives when
the returns were handed in by their
own "special wire" in Columbia Hall.

ANTI-JAPANESE RIOTS END IN  BLOODSHED.
Hongkong, Nov. 3.—Several Chinese
rioters were killed yesterday in a clash
between armed police and soldiers and
the Japanese quarter of the city is now
under military patrol.
The rioting was a continuation of the
disorders of Saturday which culminated in a riot last night. Merchants
carrying Japanese goods were attacked and their shops looted. Japnnese
warehouses were Net on fire during the
night and their stores destroyed.
Today the armed police were unable
to quell the mobs and the troops were
called. The appearance of the soldiers
had little effect and volleys were fired
into the mob before the rioters broke
and fled. Hundreds of arrests were
made and further trouble is feared.
Strenuous measures are being taken
to prevent a repetition>f the disorders
of yesterday. The shops and go-downs
which were wrecked were those of
merchants who had become weary of
the continuance of the boycott on Japanese carriers and whose goods were
awaiting exportation. Their attitude
caused- the rough element to make
attacks upon them during the day, the
minor disorders finally culminating in
the serious riot last night.
BARNARD VOTE IS INCREASED.
Victoria, B. C, INov. 8.-The result of the judicial recount in the local
election leaves the first decision unaltered except that G, H. Barnard has
increased his majority, now winning
the seat by thirteen votes, Hon.  W.
Templemen's supporters will not take
further action. The rumors'regarding
the portfolio of inland revenue emanating from the Tory press in Vancouver
are entirely unfounded and it is practically certain that Hon. W. Templeman
will remain in the cabinet. Nothintr
definite, however can be known until
alter the deferred elections have taken
place.
London, Nov. 8.-The Westminster
Gazette on the Canadian elections says
that the staunchness of the Canadian
electorate is well calculated to make
the mouths of British politicians water.
"We hope," it add', "Sir Wilfred
will be able to add to his great services
to his beloved Canada hy getting rid of
abuses which if unchecked may lead to
a really serious corrupting of public
life."
The Pall Mall Gazette reflects t. at
elections should impart a useful lesson
to Conservatives elsewhere on the disadvantages of beinj wi bout a constructive policy, adding: "It seems a
j story with a not distinct moral for
British statesmen. It wasjLabouchere,
if we remember, who admonished Randolph Churchill on the importance of
becom ng a 'fetish,' and Laurier Las
attained to that extremely select grade
of notability."
The Standard says Conservatives as
well as Liberals join in applauding tiie
success of Laurier.
The Globe says Canada is in some
.danger nowadays of being carried away
by the vast material success which
stretches out before her people, without paying much attention to the finer
Spiritual forces of honesty and uprightness. The present election, if it does
not prove corruption has made headway, has not shown its strength has
been diminished.
The Manchestor Guardian's com-
mentory on the Canadian elections says:
"The main trend of Canadian seti-
ment is along the lines of nationalism
and Laurier's popularity with his
people rests largely upon his develop,
ment of national policy. What form
that notionalism will ultimately take
would be hazardous to prophesy, but
the tendency may be towards a more
complete self dependence and the
loosening of formal ties with England.''
The Liverpool Daily Mercury says:
"The result must be taken ns an expression of complete confidence in
Laurier's administration and of approval of the fiscal policy that he has
pursued."
The Yorkshire JPost doesn't think
there is anything to regret in the result.

'NOT   GUILTY'
For the past few months all sorts of
charges have been laid against members
of the Laurier Government by the Conservative Press and Conservative
Cihdidates and their political followers.
Over and over again thejjcharges were
proved to be false and without the
shadow of foundation. The Laurier
Government appealed to a trial by jury,
a jury of the whole Dominion of Canada, and the jury on the 26th handed in
their verdict "Not Guilty."
Perhaps never before has a political
party been so thoroughly vindicated as
in this Election, and in the face of the
energetic campaign waged against the
Premier, it is a striking tribute to the
general efficiency of his administration,
that after twelve years in office the
verdict should be so strongly in his
favour. The vilest abuse, the grossest
and most malignant slanders were not
too much to issue fra.m Conservat.ve
lips and Conservative Press, and nothing too bad could be said by those who
knew better; but for pure and petty
party spite, and for political aggrandisement, these men continued their unwarranted attacks and slanderous statements up to the very last. But they
are now effectually siienced, for if ever
a political party were put to rout,
horse, foot and artillery; it was the
Conservative Party on Monday, Oct.
:6th, 1908.
While we regret the fact that Vancouver and V ictoria have not seen fit
to return supporters of the Laurier
Government, yet J[we feel that the
Province as a whole will not suffer, for
the Elections of Smith Curtis, Duncan
Ross and Sloan are so absolutely sure,
that B. C. will have four sturdy representatives on the   right side at
Ottawa.
- m m
Ontario bas proved the most dis
appointing of all the provinces to Mr.
Borden and his followers, for it is there
where the Conservatives are best
known and there the greatest Liberal
rains have been made. There it is that
.he chief scandal-mongers have gone
town to defeat, and for the fourth time
air Wilfred Laurier returns to the
House of Commons at the head of a
large majority, the largest, with one
exception, he or any other Premier has
had behind him in ;he Dominion Parliament.
The Election of Smith Cur .is has
never been in doubt since the date of
his nomination. In fact it will be very
questionable if Goodeve saves his deposit. It would be the most foolish
thing possible for residents, of this
valley to cast a ballot for a man sitting in the cool shades of opposition.
A vote for Goodeve will be a vote
absolutely thrown away. He can do
nothing for the district as compared with
what Smith Curtis can accomplish.
IBBB    B»    —
There are a few voters in the Valley
who still think that there is a possibility
of Goodeve being elected. The only
reason we can give for such an opinion
is that these persons forget that -he
Valley of the Columbia is not the whole
of the constituency. They forget that
the whole of the Crow's Nest line, and
such places as Fernie, Nelson, Rossland
Trail and the Boundary Country are
solid for Smith Curtis. Every labour
vote in the district will be polled for
him, and his majority will be up in the
hundreds. Just watch the returns and
see how near we are to being correct.
BILLIE   BOWWOWSER   AS   A
PROPHET
	
Our congratulations are extended to
the Right Honorable Billie Bowser. A
few weeks ngo the Honorable William
made a political tour of the Eastern
Provinces to help the cause of Conservatism in general and William in particular, It is well known that Mr.
Bow-wow-ser has long had an eye on a
cushioned chair in Ottawa. In 1896 he
and Cowan opposed one another in Vancouver; Bowser as an Independent
Conservative, Cowan as a straight
shoot. They both got licked and badly
licked, by the Liberal Candidate. But
the Right honorable Billie still hankers
after that seat in Ottawa, and as we
aforesaid he made a political tour of
the Eastern Provinces just to show
them "thatsme." Whether his expenses are charged up in the legal department of Provincial affairs so that
the tax payer will be unable to see
them we are not now prepared to say.
Lawyers have a nice knack of doing
things. Well, when the Right Honorable William came back to the prosaic
West he appeared at a public meeting
in Vancouver and told the folks what
great things he had done, (and what
greater things he thought he could do)
back East.
He pictured beautiful pictures of his
magnificent reception in the "cent
belt" and how many invitations he had

to speak in public, and how ever so
many he had to decline. And then he
went on tb show the whole Province of
Ontario, how New Brunswick (BiHie's
home) and all the Maritime Provinces
would sweep Sir Wilfred and his gang
of grafters into the Atlantic or some
where else. He had been there and he
knew!  It was no use.
Pugsley would get his quietus in St.
John and there would be a clean sweep
throughout. But this is not all. Three
days before the Election the Honorable
William deigned to give audience to a
reporter from the office of the
"Province" newspaper. And to the
said reporter, (so the "Province" stated) William poised as the Prophet. He
predicted the cleanest sweep from the
Atlantic to the Pacific of anything and
everything Liberal. He actually showed the reporter an immense pile of
correspondence which he stated he had
received from all parts of the East,
and it waa simply impossible, in the
face of all the evideace before him, to
conceive of anything but a  rousing

All Canadians are proud of the wonderful success of the Family Herald
and Weekly Stur of Montreal. Few
homes in Canada will be found without
it to-day and every home is the better
for receiving it." It is a weekly newspaper, family magazine and agricultural
journal, all three in one, and each one
worth what they ask for the whole
combination. Our readers should all
have their local paper, but no family
can well afford to be without "The
Family Herald and Weekly Star." It
is simply marvellous what a vast
amount one gets for a dollar a year.
"The Family Herald and Weekly Star"
is looked upon as a clean family paper
in every respect. 27-2t,
With the return of the Shooting
Season, there is one question many a
father will have to face: "Papa, may
I have a gun this year?"
One father will say "Yes;" another
"Wait till you're ten;" another, "Wait
till you're iweive;" another perhaps,
fourteen.
For our part we would say, ' Let
him have it when he's ten; or il he has
developed ahead of his age, perhaps a
a little earlier.
j. here are countless men to-uay who
began to shoot about as soon as they
..ad strength enough to raise a gun to
their shoulders. Almost without exception such are men of quick decision,
action and assurance. The gun has a
great deal to do with fostering these
three qualities, and we say begin it
early.
This is no new theory; the readers of
this paper have had it very ably presented in the announcements of the
J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company,
Chicopee Falls, Mass. The company is
conducting a very laudable campainn in
introducing a light, practical rifle to
our young lads all over the country.
Young eyes are .being trained, young
arms strengthened, and young nerves
steadied, which should be the better
able to frame the destiny of our country
a few years hence.
We wish the J. Stevens Arms & Tool
Company the best of success in carrying out their splendid work, and we
recommend most heartily to everyortje
catalog, just issued, on the rifle and
shotgun, with most interesting information on the care and selection of fire
arms, ammunition, target shooting,
etc. This book of reference has 140

visit during the week.
Commencing Monday Nov. 2nd,, the
Golden Public schools will open at half
past nine in the morning and close at
a quarter past three in the afternoon
during the winter months.
Miss. F. Conner, has returned from
an extended visit to Field.
Monday November 9th is Thanksgiving. Special Services will be held in
the local churches.
There was a large attendance at
Smith Curtis' meeting, which was held
in the Buckham Hall at Field, Friday
evening.
W. C. Wells of Nelson, left Saturday
morning for the Upper Country, where
he will address several meetings in the
Windermere District in the interest of
.smith Curtis.
Frank Moodie arrived in town Saturday, in company with several business
men of that city. They will leave at
once for the Big B>nd Country to look
over some Mica claims.
A serious fight took place at Field
last Saturday night betwee \ two men
irom the Construction Camp on the
"Big Hill." The fight started over a
dispute regarding some money matters
and the result is, one of them is laying

A      SOLID    VOTK
A vote of the whole Dominion of
Canada to ascertain the best value to
be had in the newspaper line would
without question result in a solid vote
for the Family herald and Weekly
star of Montreal. At twice, yes five
times its present price it would still be
considered good value, in fact it is just
such a paper that most homes woula
have at any price. It costs but one
dollar a year, and one can't go wrong
in giving it a trial. It already reaches
ihe majority of homes in this country,
and those who receive it would not be
without it.
Conspicuous for sagacious management and for the success of their company, presenting Harold Nelson, Willis & Cosgrove have with this season's
production excelled in theatrical endeavor. In this great Bibical drama,
"The Holy City,"there is combined
much wealth of acting, allegory, music
and spectacle, as has rarely, if ever,
been seen. The possibilities for dramatic effect with which the thrilling
narrative of John the Baptist abounds,
have been utilized with great skill and
apparently unlimited cost. The acting
company is noted for its integral brilliancy; the scenes present history in
radient splendor; the stage aarapher
nalia, all of which is carried by the
company, being of impressive beauty.
The integrity of its management first
called public attention to the play; its
matchless performances are carrying
those endorsements which honesty of
purpose and skillful design command.
The presentation of "The Holy City"
here, will be eagerly anticipated, and
will be seen at the Columbia Hall, on
Friday, Nov. 6th.
Vote for Smith Curtis on 12th Nov.
News was received in town on Monday to the effect that Mark J, Collins

Pete, the pleasing, plundering pup,
which for many moons has chewed
ancient, tough and shattered beefsteaks
arout.d this print shop, is no more.
While engaged in a fight with another
canine upon the road to the Mother Lode
the stage ran over him and he passed in
his checks with his face to the foe.
Pete wasn't much to look at. Just a
common mixture of town dog, but he
knew no fear. He would fight anything from a cat to an elephant, and
this passion caused his death. As lar
as could be learned Pete was an orphan
and had no relatives in the city.
Business is booming in Enderby, for
we notice that the local paper has built
a wood shed at the rear of the print
shop.
