Ross 25, Bunting   15,   spoiled   ballots 2.
Both parties worked hard from
the opening till the close of the poll
in the interests of their respective
candidates. The result of the po'l

ballots last evening. The result
showed that out of an available
vote of 93 no fewer than 90 were
polled    as    follows :      Burrell    48,
Supporters at Martin Burrell who
wavered in their faith that he cou'd
possib'y win out in the face of such
a heavy handicap, plucked up courage as the returns began to come
in last evening. With the lone exception at Hedley first returns a'l
proved favorable and when Kelowna, Vernon and Kamloops (places
where the biggest bribes had been
made) boosted the majority into the
hundreds, it was evident that the
result in the Boundary Country,
however favorable, could not overcome the lead established. As it
turned out. when these returns
eventually came in, they but still
further increased Mr. Burrell's magnificent majority to the figures indicated above. While a great many
small polls remain to be heard from
there is every reason to expect that
they will increase rather than diminish this majority.

to the increase in dairy herds on
every farm, the crop has been light
in many instances, all of which will

New Westminster, Nov. 7. The

the severe manner in which the

persecution, as they arc not allowed

Tri-Weekly Service.
IKelouna Courier )
In the arbitrary manner which
seems characteristic ol the dealings
of the C.P.R. with the general public the tri-weekly service superseded the daily this week. No public
intimation was given ol the change,
notice being sent to Capt. Esta-
brooks by wire on Friday to begin
the new echedulc on Monday. Owing to the later arrival of Ihe train
at Vtmon under the new time-table
the Stage is not able to wait lor the
mail, Bltd Kelowna is thus reduced
to three inward mails pel week, .in
absurd slate ol all.iirs lor I town ol
|,SO0 people lo sulfcr, ami we  have
nit doubt the Board of Trade will
take immediate and vigorous action
lo 'hi.tin a proper daily service. \
ridiculous rumor is in circulation
that the C.P.R. has curtailed the
service Ba a mark i'l   displeasure  at
tba Laurier government being returned to power. This tale was
started as a joke, yet some weak-
headed individuals ara silly enough
to take it in earnest. Moan and I
arbitrary as the C.P.R. often is, it
is not quite so petty or foolish as
that, and it has been guided iu lhe
matter by sole   regard   of   economy
aiul absolute disregard of its duty
to the people who so liberally endowed it with bonuses and privileges.
Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving day was generally
observed as a holiday in Keremeos
and in the evening Rev. Thiirrturii-
Conn, under the auspices of the
Church Aid Society, delivered a very
interesting and highly instructive
lecture on "Courtship and Matrimony." That there were not more
present to hear the speaker is a
matter of regret as he certainly
showed a thorough and intimate
knowledge of his subject, which,
combined with his forceful and energetic method of delivery, prevented
any dull moments. His naive description ofthe ways and wiles of the
fair sex should have drawn a full
houst from among the bachelor
clement alone, but as they tlid tun
consider it worth their while to attend we do not consider that it is
up to us to repeat it for their bcnlit.

G. MILBURN. CORRESPONDENCE.
Nickel Plate Mine Poisons and
Destroys the Use of the Similkameen River.
To the editor ofthe Keremeos Trumpet :
Friday last I took one of Wty
pleasant trips to see the progress
ofthe Keremeos Land Company's
irrigation work now so near completion. Riding along the Similkameen I noticed ■ change in the
usual clear waters ami on reaching
the bridge, on which  I  stood,  the
river presented the appearance of a
"milky way" for miles. Enquiring
the reason I found that it was caused
by the operation ofthe Nickel Plate
mine. Further enquiring if the condition was not detrimental to the
fish, as 1 found it had been in other
places, I received the reply lhat
afler every c!ean-up dead fish can
be found iii quantities.
Surely your laws do not allow,
and will not,  tolerate  the  wanton
pollution of the people's rights ?
And have the fish DO right to an
existence? Where are your Pish
Commission ? They across the
border have hail that question
settled once and for all. That
lledlev should make no move is
natural, hut let some mine operate
above her, Ihen you would hear a
mighty roar about her waters being
polluted. I have always maintained that laws on this side of the line
wire respected, but whei, I lind
thai one corporation can, and is,
polluting miles of nature's greatest
gift, fresh water, then I wonder if
justice and vindication is part ofthe
country's government. I find thai
you have both words in your Canadian dictionary so that their meaning is known.
Keremeos should demand the discontinuance of this outrage.    What
would have been the result had the
water   from the   Similkameen   been
used  in the  irrigation   ditch   and
turned on to the homes of the people
instead of the pure and undclilcd
waters of the Ashnola P

LOCAL NOTES.
F. Schneider made   an   exploring
trip up Sheep creek last week.    Near
the summit he tays he encountered
a bear but did not care to   tackle  it
single-handed with the rifle he had.
The last shot in the political campaign in Keremeos was fired on
Saturday night when John Oliver,
M.P.P. for Helta, addressed the electors. Heing absent at the time
on a hunting trip vve are unable to
give a report of the meeting, which
from till accounts was the least orderly and most poorly attended of
the series, and as a vote catcher a
dismal failure. Major Megraw of
Hedley took the platform in the interests of Martin Burrell and Geo,
Kirby occupied the chair.

While engaged in racing horses
with Charlie Lowe on Friday evening Dr. McEwen met with a serious
accident, which has not only prevented him from attending to his
duties since that time, but will detract from his manly beauty for all
time. Just how the injury was inflicted is not certain as Lowe was
ahead at the time and the doctor
was unconscious for some hours
after the accident, lie thinks, however, that the swerving of the horse
caused him to strike a telegraph
pole. Besides a naslv gash over
the eve a hone in one shoulder was
fractured.
