A despatch from Fernie says:
"The political campaign is being
waged with vigor by both Conservatives and Socialists. The
Liberal association has taken
no action in anticipation of the
bye-election on Oct. 22. The
Ross committee rooms are
located m the Turner block
whicli is for the time being the
busiest place in the city. The
Conservative organization is
complete and effective. The
general impression is that Mr.
Ross will have a majority of
about 400 over his .Socialist opponent, .). W. Bennett. The
campaign will be largely a matter of careful personal canvass
with a few rousing public meetings during the last few days.

Sir Thomas Has Little to Say.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy and
a large party of leading Canadian Pacific railway officials
arrived in Vancouver last Monday. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy
will remain on the coast a week
looking over the company's property. He said the company
was not considering plans for
placing larger vessels on the
transpacific route, but the method of dealing wirh the question
had not yet been decided.
"When will the company
build a line around Kootenay
lake to establish a through-link
line between the prairies and
tlio Boundary district via the
Crow's Xest Pass road ? Do
you iutend to ultimately build
through the Similkameen and
southern Okanagan to give an
alternative liue to tho coast ?"
he was asked.
"For the present I think
traffic could be more advantageously handled by the Fraser
river route. We shall watch
the experiment of the Kettle
Valley in extending west from
Midway in the Boundary to
Merritt in the Nicola valley,
where we have a branch line.
We try to be conservative and
besides have other large plans
to carry out elsewhere," was the
"Surveyors representing the
Canadian Pacific railway aro
said to have been engaged in
making a preliminary survey
this season for the lino from
Revelstoke to Yellowhead Pass'*'"
"That's news. These engineers did not wear our brand,"
Sir Thomas stated that he had
nothing further to add about
the extension of tho Kootenay
Central beyond the announcement made in the recent annual
report. Construction work is
now is pi ogress from the southern end.
Vice  -   President       William
Whyte stated that the  railway
would extend wharves at   Vancouver  to meet  growing  business.    Tho question   of  a  new
depot in that city was engaging;
the  attention   of  the   manage-,
| ment and action would probably be taken next year.    To prepare for  the  expected   flow  of
wheat tllis way next season thei
company would (build   H   small
elevator for doubling the capacity for handling grain horo.
('. \l. llosmer, president of
tlio Ogilvie Milling company,
said his concern was keeping a
close eye on the coast and expected to seo cosiderablc wheat
come this way, especially after
the Panama canal was opened.
The awakening in China
would load to a demand for
breadstuffs there and to meet,
this domand it was probable the
company would erect a flour
mill of considerable size on the
coast. The party will not visit
the, Kootenays on this trip, and
will return home by the main

toilet. The liking ut' the host dressmakers for veiled
effects is responsible for the crazo*, for today nothing must
be garish or flaunting; hut. while rich color is .suggested, it
must be softened by a misty him of ime kind or another. So
even the trimmings go under the gauze and laee as a rule
to thoir improvement.
And the girdle is a pronounced feature of tlie best, gowns,
it sometimes bei-omes so wide beiow the waist and su large
a part of the bodice above the waist lino, that its original
character is well-night lost.
Last year's silk gown of almost any sort may be combined
with gauze or lace of some kind to make a toilet that is suited to some occasion. The foulard veiled with chiffon make
up simple little afternoon or visiting gowns.
The blue ami green combinations of metallic effect arc
popular. A deep rich blue satin gown veiled with black chiffon is trimmed under tho gauze with embroideries done in
peacock shades. The result is too hard for any but a youthful complexion; Ion mi the stately young women who wear it,
it is stunning. A new green, dark and deep, goes by the
pretty name of " scarabee," aud is not unlike the tone of
the antique gem. Veilings of this color are much used ovei
gray, rose, certain snades of mauve or ovor white.
Some of the  new foulards are printed with old cashmen

maintaining draught animals fur want
of grazing. Throughout the length and
breadth of China, except on the remote
Mongolian 'steppes, one never sees a
grass Held, and only along the ditches
and along the grave-sown hills is there
sparse grazing for sheep, donkeys, and
buffaloes. All available tillable'land is
required for the feeding of a douse two-
legged population. This stato of affairs

thousands of years, represents the high
est development attainable by a one-
wheel vehicle, with the single exception
of ball-bearings ami grease-cups. The
use of axle urease must certainly be
known to the Chinese, but, strange to
say. it is ignored. The screech of tin
wheel, like the pagoda bells, is heard
far over the Celestial landscape. On
this wheelbarrow, with its high, razor
rimmed wheel case, like a boat cabin
split by the cei.i re board, loads of 200

at a speed of three miles an hour. In

Some Socialist windbag, who
is ashamed of liis own name,
breaks into musical discourse
in an "Open Letter to the New
Cabinet Minister" which does
not bear the Union label. Says
tlie writer, "Let's get down to
brass tacks when we play tin-
game of polities and eut out
the 'rhapsodical theories.'" His
candour is commendable and
unique. What he does not
know about dim flamming the
public in the political game
could be telegraphed without
using a niglit letter but what
bc knows about tbe hotelmen's
readiness to "dig up" is on a par| vmcia
with his knowledge of the
chemical elements of the contents of Aladdin's lamp. The
hotelmen adore W. J. Bowser,
the father of the Liquor Act
of 1910. They simply worship
