A
LANDSLIDE FOR
COODEVEANDDURRELL
Result ol Deferred Elections Is to Send Two
Mon Back Benchers to
Ottawa.
The election is over and Goodeve for
Kootenay and Burrell for Yale-Cariboo
have been chosen from the six candidates offering.
In Kootenay the Liberals were con
fident of victory, while the Conservatives counted upon a majority of
about 100 for Goodeve. The fight was
a keen one and the strength of the
Socialist candidate made the result very
problematical. The election of Goodeve
is much less of a surprise than is that
of Burrell.
From early morn until the polls dored
the workers of both parties were afield
getting their machinery in readiness
for a final effort, and long before the
hour for polling came round the little
house opposite the Columbia Hotel,
presented a busy scene, and at nine o'clock when the booth was opened and
the array of scrutineers had taken their
places, the real activity of the election
commenced. Throughout the day the
Conservatives were busy rounding up
voters, and buying as many as they
could with money, whisky, or anything
to have them vote Conservative.
When the polls closed the excitement commenced. After the ballots
were counted, it showed that the Conservatives were leading in Golden by
five, meanwhile the news was being
flashed over the wires from other seats
bf war, end when the final counts were
made it showed that Goodeve, the Conservative candidate for Kootenay had
won with a majority of 921, and Burrell
for Yale-Cariboo by 768 over Ross.
The following are the result of the
polls in Columbia Riding:
CHINESE EMPEROR  DEAD
Kuang Hau, of the Manchu Dynasty,
is dead at Pekin. Such is alleged to be
the truth by prominent local Chinese
closely in touch with powerful fellow
countrymen at the Celestial Capital.
The sei-ret has filtered out through the
intricate Masonic ramifications which
underlie the intrigues and policies of the
Chin jse Empire. That the death of the
Emperor is not known generally even
at Pekin, is evident from the tone of
despatches received.
Kuang Hau was born on August 15,
1871, and succeeded to the Throne on
January 12th, 1875.
It is asserted by those in a position
to speak with authority that Tzu-Hsi,
the Empress-Dowager, is keeping the
demise of the Emperor secret as long
as possible in order to mature the Government's plans  for confronting  the

Ottawa, Nov. 17.—Advices have
been received by the government that

6wayne, will come to Canada shortly
in connection with the proposed plan
of transporting the Hindoo population
of British Columbia to British Honduras

PERSERVA'iION OF B. C. TIMBER.
—o—
That the Dominion Government is
exerting every effort in the difficult problem of conserving the forest wealth
of British Columbia was the statement
made Friday evening by Mr. E. P.
Bremner, president of the British Columbia Timber and Forestry Chambers
of Commerce, at the annual meeting of
this ussociation.
Mr. Bremner added that the Dominion Government's efforts to preserve
the timber from the devastations of
fire "were worthy of every commendation."
Regarding the changes in the Bush
Fires Act, he announced that he had
every confidence that at the next session of the legislative assembly such
amendments would be introduced and
passed as would meet the requirements
of the situation.
The meeting seemed remarkably enthusiastic, a tone of sincere optimism
showing itself through every speech,
the impression being easily gathered,
that, in the opinion of the members, the
timber industry of the province is on
the eve of a new era of prosperity.
It was decided to appoint a committee
to represent the three affiliated assoc at-
icns, namely, the B. C. Forestry
Association, the Loggers' association
and the Lumber and Shingle Manufacturers' association, and to draft an
outline of suggested amendments to the
Bush Fires Act, for submission to the
government. The members of this
committee have not yet been named.
\ ada; and as the people of Newfound'and
as already noted, are greaily opposed to
the idea of annexation, this line of
attack by the Government party have
kept them busy defending themselves.
Tne Opposition have made their fight
mainly on the fact that Premier Bond
is confrontea with embarrassing proof
that he has failed to fulfill certain important promi es upon which he won his
majority in his last appeal to the electorate. He pledged himself, for instance,
to the enactment of measures which
would maintain a higher price foi fish,
which is the Ancient Colony's chief
source of wealth; and at the present
time the price is at the lowest point in
a decade. The Opposition have been
making promises vigorously and .with
great confidence in the campaign which
has just ended, and they a.ave set forth
a diversified and comprehensive domestic policy which seemed to commend
itself greatly to popular approval. In -
this the Opposition in Newfoundland,
led by Sir Edward M orris, presents a
striking contrast to the Opposition in
this country, led by R. L. Borden.

THE LIBERALS Mil THE C.P.H.
No other Conservative organ did as
strenuous work in the recent campaign
as the Toronto News. To quote once
that personal and confidential letter
sent to each Conservative candidate in
Ontario by the committee in Toronto
which directed the campaign in that
Province, "arrangements were made"
to have the News "present the case
powerfully in arguments, articles and
actually gone down to defeat. The
Premier, Sir Robert Bond, has hud two
terms of power. The Opposition is lek
by Sir Edward Morris, who Was Attorney-General in the Bond Government until July, 1907, when he withdrew on a labor question. Subsequently
he and his associates in that difference
with the Government coalesced with
the regular Opposition and formed
what is known as the People's Party,
which challenged the Government in he
elections on Monday.
In addition to the questions of domestic policy which are at issue, the
International problem of the Atlantic
fisheries difficulty is involved, as is also
the question of the Labrador boundary,
which is a difference between Canada
and Newfoundland over the extent of
their respective shares of that peninsula.
The supporters of the Government also
have been seeking to represent that the
Opposition are planning to bring about
the annexation of Newfoundland to Can- <
FEARFUL MINING DISASTER.
Hamm, Westphalia, Germany, Nov.
17—The greatest mine disaster for
many years in Germany occurred at
Rabod mine, three miles from here, on
Thursday morning.
Theie was a heavy explosion in the
mine about 4 a.m., and almost immediately after the mine took fire.
Of three hundred and eighty miners
only six escaped without injury.
Thirty-five were taken out badly -injured and thirty-seven bodies were
brought out.
The remaining three hundred and two
have been given up for lost.
INTERNATIONAL
CRISIS FEARED
MANILA, Nov. 18.-It is generally
believed here that in the event of a revolution in China, as the result of the
deaths of the Dowager Empress and
the Emperor of China, the American
fleet will be ordered to China to protect
American interests, and if need be to
assist the authorities of the Chinese
Empire in restoring order.
There is intense interest among the
officers of the fleet at newt from China
and the officers generally believe that
they will not leave Oriental waters until the situation in China has quieted

EDITOR APPEALS LIBEL CASE.
Calgary, Alta., Nov. 17.—The famous trial of D. McGillicuddy, charged
with criminal libel of R. C. Edwards,
editor of the Eye-Opener, closed Wed
nesday night with the conviction of McGillicuddy, who was fined $100. The
jury found that the plea of justification
was not sustained. It added a rider t >
its verdict that the members of the
jury, as citizens of Calgary, desired to
pluce on record their disapproval of the
obscene l'terature, illustrations an i
such like in the Eye-Opener, and suggested that the paper be suppi-eased in
rase similar stuff should be printed.
. The judge decided that each party
should pay its own costs,
The judge in his finding cautioned th*
Eye-Opener against repeating objectionable literature.
The defence asked for a re erve cas
inasmuch as the judge left to the jury
the deciding upon justification.
Leave to appeal to the full court,
which meets December 1, to hear if
jury had power to decide on plea of
justification, was granted Thursday
morning. Stay of payment of the fine
was granted to December 15. Meanwhile McGillicuddy is out on bca.il on his
own recognizance and he will not discuss the case. Edwards also says noth-
ing, only adnouncing that the next
issue of the Eye-Opener will be November 21.

TAKE TflE HINT AND ACT NOW.
A new series of short Stories is about
to commence in The Family Herald and
Weekly Star of Montreal that are said
to be the best ever offered to newspaper readers. A complete story will
papear each week. The series alone is
worth more than the whole year's
subscription price, one dollar, and when
one thinks of all the other good things
that appear in that great weekly he can
readily understand why the publishers
so earnestly urge present subscribers to
renew early and give them a chance to
enter the thousands of new applications
in December and January. It is safe
to say that no person remitting a dollar for the Family Herald and Weekly
Star for 1909 will regret it. Any farmer, particularly, who is not a regular
reader, is missing something he cannot
afford to.
