C: li.   .Mackinto>h,   Wm.   Blackmore,
The local K. of P. had a very successful niecling Friday evening of last
week. Since the lire the order has
been somewhat demoralized, only two
meetings having been held since that
time. Friday night il was decided to
hold an open meeting on the evening

in the district are invited.
The hardwood flooring for the new
Waldorf hotel arrived this week and is
being laid. Work has been delayed on
the building for some weeks owing to

material had to be "purchased in Calgary. The building will be ready for
occupation in a few weeks,
Tlie new provincial 'residence in Fernie is about completed. It is a substantial structure. Some of ihe rooms
arcmadc exceptionally strong, with "a
view to keeping brawlers and loughs
from breaking in and intruding on the
retirement of the regular boarders. The
regulations governing the conduct of
patrons of the institution are somewhat
strict, but where seclusion "is the main
object of the' residents this will not detract from its popularity
New York, Nov. 9.—Roosevelt swept., the country today. The indications nre lhat
the Republican majority in the next house of representatives will be at least forty. The
President has issued a message of thanks to the. people. In it he declares that under no
circumstances will he be a candidate or accept another nomination. The result" was so
plainly apparent that at .8:30 Judge Parker telegraphed from Esopus to President Roosevelt as follows:
"The people by their votes have emphatically approved your administration, and I
congratulate you." _^
President Roosevelt replied:     "I thank you for your congratulations."
The latest returns from New York state and city shows that Roosevelt's plurality is
about 26,500.    The legislature is overwhelmingly Republican.
The Republicans, so far as returns have been received, have 293 electoral votes, the
Democrats 151, and 32 doubtful.

We were amused at one individual
who was asked for his photograph for
ihe Hearld's annual edition. He told
us with considerable unclion that he
could not think of permitting a picture
of himself to appear in the newspaper,

photo taken. The newspaper man sees

To illustrate the danger of using the
water from the surface wells in town
for domestic purposes, it might be said
that Ihe men digging the ditches for
the water works found place where the
stench wnssso trong that they had to gel
out for relief. The formation of ihe
ground oil this flat makes it possible
for all sewerage to run "through Ihe
gravel, and naturally all surface wells
on the lliil are little belter than cess
pools. The persons who use lhat
water for domestic purposes are taking
their lives in' their hands.
Some two months ago when Superintended Stocks, of iho water company,
said Ilt.it they would have (he water in

Ihe water reached the town districts.

enough advanced so that the water

is great liiiste now in gelling the connections made before frost will make

The elections throughout the Dominion on Thursday last resulted iu a
sweeping victory for the Liberal party.
The Fernie Liberal association had
engaged Stork's Opera Douse and
put in a telegraph instrument, and before 12 o'clock nearly the complete returns liad been announced. The victory was so sweeping that the majority of the Liberals present, out of
consideration for Ihe feelings of the
Conservatives refrained from applause
as the returns were announced.
In announcing the returns  from the
City of Halifax, Mayor Stork expressed
his regret at the defeat of Hon. R. L.
Borden, and paid a high tribute lo the
integrity ol the leader of the opposition.
The mayor also  feelingly referred to
the election of Joe Seagram  in North
Waterloo,   and stated   that although
few. in   the audience were  personally
acquainted  with   Mr.   Seagram, many
were familiar with   the  brand of goods
manufactured by him.
The result of the election was not a
surprise lo lihe well-posted politicians,
but the returns from Nova Scotia,
Manitoba aud the Territories took
away the brealh of many of Ihe Tories
present.    Following are the returns:

Well, to cut it short, I dt-lh'd prudence and went with him. Lt I had
been the possessor of iholhutk ol ling
land I would not have wanted any
greater capital than the lone §10 in
my pocket. The first game I won
and many succeeding ones, and at
tho end of two hours' play my opponent owed me $2,000. Then he
smilingly proposed, to play just one
more game, which would decide
whether ho would pay mo $4,000 or
nothing. In other words ho wanted
a chance to get oviii on this one
game or else to doublo his indebtedness. I know his che'iute was good
for a good deal more than $1,000,
and yet, broke as I was, the $2,0001
had won seemed like a million, and
it looked criminal to risk it on a
single game,, Again something told
mo to play him ami I consented.
In tho first two deals he made six
points while I had hut one, and in my
heart 1 wns already cursing my lolly
for such odds are not. beaten once in
thousand times. While ho thus
lacked one |>oiiit oi winning, it was
my turn to deal, which made it even
worso for mo. I turiird » club and
my opponent led out with a king ol
that suit promptly, on which I played
the nee. He also had the tray, hut
to his great chngrin I had the deuce.
As a result I scored three polntu,
making my total lour, while ho got
nothing. It was now his timo to deal
and again clubs were trumps. Scanning my hand, l saw it contained the
jack and four, nnd I promptly played
The pi-in tors hand contained not a

It is not the usual.proceeding? to sue
a dead man, but such instances have
been known. Only recently a dead
.nan by the name of Pierce was .sued
' for somethingoyer $5,000, the plaintiff
declaring lhat, having-become entitled
• to a fortune, he was introduced to
Pierce, wlio al once suggested a game
of baccate!. * They • played all night
and Pierce won $5,000 and over. The
plaintiff acknowledges that he was
intoxicated at the time and believed
that he had been in the hands of card
sharpers. He afterward tried to
find Pierce but without success. Finally
some months later he chanced lo meet
with one of the other players from
- whom he learned that Pierce-hud committed sucide. He at once commenced
action. The judges, however, declared
the story to be impossible and said lhat
he could.not convict a dead man of the
grossest fraud.   . **-
Dead men, however, have been found
guilty of even worse offences. About
ro years, ago a dead man was cited as a
co-respondent in a notorious divorce
case and his estate was mulcted in
damages over $20,000. Similar to that
of the Pierce case was one which occur-
ed in 1898, when a dead man was sued
for $50^000, money won at gambling
and, at horse^raciog. It was argued
that the deceased was at the time of tin-
transaction aware that his betting companion must have been gelling his
money by fraud, since the young man's
income was only $750 a year. "Hearing
that legal proceedings were being taken
Dunlop committed suicide. The hearing of the action lasted two days, when
a settlement wns effected.
A dead sea captain figured ns defen-
„ dant in an important shipping action a
few years ago. His vessel, the "Nov-
grayoff," had run aground, and her
valuable cargo was lost. At the hear-
.ing of the salvage action it was urged
that the captain who lost his life during
a storm after the foundering had been
guilty of gross ncgligenre and evidence
duced against the dead man. The
judge in summing up, declared that
had the officer been alive he would
most certainly have been arrested on
' a serious charge, and as it- was, the
plaintiffs wop their case. '»
...Among other cases of this discription
In England was that of a gamekeeper
who was convicted of poaching over the
estates of a well" known peer. The
man, however, protested his innocence
and after- serving three months' imprisonment took steps to obtain a reconsideration of his case. His efforts
were successful, for the real poacher
whs discovered. Hut in the meantime

man forthwith commenced an action

Lniighs and Laughter
Speaking of laughs, the most heartrending laugh is the laugh of the summer girl that shook you, and is gadding

- The most demoralizing laugh to the
married man, is the laugh of the family
doctor when he comes up and slaps the
the married man on the back and
shouts, "It's twins, old man I"
The most grotesque laugh is that of

The hollowest laugh is the laugh a
man laughs when he sees the necktie
his wife has bought him.

Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria
is 74. He has reigned for 5G years
and has been called upon to stand up

more revenue and more subjects than
when he began to reign.
