the youth of the town appeared to have

his Hock from the small debts court,

THIS CAMPAIGN,
Wednesday night nf last wcul- flic
Conservatives held a meeting In Stork's
opera house. About two hundred per-
sous wero pi esertt. W. II. I loss, M. I,.
A., occupied the ch.iir. The r-'rwakers
were Hun. C. Il Mukiiit..s:1, the party
candidate, and W. Illakemnre, M. B.
Mr. lllskeni'ire was the lirst speaker,
and ilfmunaiwl the Iwu-'s tint from in
part) nut from n btininexs suindpolnl,
eh-aily showing the Injury to ll.e iiia',
lead and lumber intlit»ti-it-*of the province resulting from the policy of the
laurier giiviiiiuiient.
Mr. Mai-kliitoeb dealt more partini
replying in brief to Mr. Macdonald's
speech delivered in Qranbrook tlio past
week, and concluded by asking the
support of those present for the Conservative candidate.    ,
The next speaker was J. A. Macdonald, leader of the pioviucial opposition. This wus Mr. Macdou-tld's lirsl
appearance in Fernie, and the large
iniij rtity of the audience were anxious
to hear one who may at some future
period be premier of the province, Mr.
Macdonald is a pleasing and logical
speaker, and a clever manipulator of
tacts. In a speech of about an hour's
•Juration he presented the Liberal side,
of the caso in a very convincing manner. To tho people of the mining
portions of British Columbia perhaps
the most important subject touchid on
by him was a duty on coal, lumber and
lead. To protection for these industries
Mr. Macdonald expressed himself as
opposed, contend.tig that it would
work a hardship on the people of Manitoba and the Territories. However, he
claimed that the Liberal government
had a scheme iu the incubator that
would hutch piosperily for these iu-
diiBiiics. He also referred to Mr.
Mackintosh's .connection with: the Le
Roi purchase and tho suicide of Whit-
taker Wright. Altogether it might be.
termed a clever sj etch,
xoncs.
ft, might not be considered inappropriate that the tune played by the
Italian band ..welcoming the lender of
the provincial opposition was "Marching through Georgia."
Roth meetings in tho opera house
proved conclusively that a majority of
tlie people of Fernie are not deeply
mtciusted in tho outcome of tho-con-
test in Kootenay, as veiy little en-
thtibiasm was displayed at either meet-
-iiijn   " ~
W. Blakemore, M E., has the happy
faculiy of uett'iig at tho ipith of a question and ter-oly placing it before his
audience.
"Welcome to J. A. Macdonald, the
next premier,''was the legend on tho
btrenmcr across the street Monday
1'iIght.j^Succcssfiif'''■•Jiremiers nre not

The Iculer of tne provincial opposition
should secure iindical advice on the
very serious disci dor known as "ingrowing intellect."
THE ZINC SM1SLTKH.
The zinc enriching plant now being
tmill at R isobery in the Slncnu will be
tiuibhed by Christinas, although the
works will not be breaking ore until
April. The company operating is not
tin: sit in j that piuposes to build a zinc
smelter In the coal regions. Owing to
the fact that many of the stockholders
iu the coal mine operated by French
capital near Frank are interested in
zinc, .llio smelter will lie near or at
Frank. At first it will .employ about
thirty men and bundle forty tons of ore
daily. U will be the litst zinc smciter
in Canada, ami will do much to stimulate tho production of xiuc ore iu the
.Slocan. At preiHjnt zinc ore is worth
very lltiln In thut UUiiict For Instance,
a iiinio near .Silverton received an olfer
the other day of *.*0) u ton (or several
cm loads ot ore carrying -l« per coot.

McTnvish wi-rd the judges. F-ullortcn
declared that Mitchell won the race, but
Harry Wright declared, upon his honor,
that Renwick hit tho til lie lirst. Aftet
considerable energetic oratory Mc
'lavish settled the cathop by declaring
Renwick winner, in spite of the protest.-.
of Fullerton, and mai.y disinterested
spectators. The Fernie. man offered to
run the race over, but the Nelson sports
would not do it, evidently! thinking
they had a Wright to the money, and
not even to uphold the fame of their
fair city by giving an even break to all
comers, they remained trim to the mud
in their eouis and held onto the dough
like a pack of peccaries at ithe golden
wedding lof a r.swill-barrel. The event
has blackened the eye of Nelson in outside sporting circles, Reuwick publicly stated lhat he is willing to again
run against Mitchell for [another purse
Mhchell has answered tho challenge
and will run, provided the race is pulled
off in Cranbrook. .Ho does not care to
have to beat an opponent 60 yards in
order to win a race.
Cole Murchison had a tittle time on
the sido over the latest sensation in
Nelson He held stake money for
Harry Jones and a man named Johnstone. Under tho circumstances 'Johnston refused to bIIow Colo to pay over
the money, and Jones tried to force ah
issue by getting out a warrantor Cole's
arrest, probably thinking that (betting
was a legal business. However, Cole
got back to Fernie intact aud still has
tho money, although the telegrams ate
pouring in from n lawyer in Nelson,
asking him to givo it up. All of which
makes it a fact that betting on races is
about as uncertain as playing the hole
card when the other fellow has a sign
ou its back.

He said that 'some people seemed to
think that because a man kept a public
house he must therefore desire to make
his customers drunken, but they did not
apply tho same lark of logic to a butcher, and say that, bis one idea was to
make his customers gluttons. There
was a good use for meat and a good use
for drink. And their object should bo
to get both meat and drink and all the
other good gifts of God used properly,
wisely aud temperately. It was abso-
lately contrary to tho truth to say that
alcohol was, an evil.* A friend of his, a
West Knd physician, told him that somo
of his patients were di inking themselves to death, hut he added that a
greater number wero eating themselves
to death. They nvould never sweep
the licensed vlctualors away, ami,
therefore, they should seek to improve
him.  (Oh, oh)
After a somewhat excited discussion
an amendment was adopted, "That,as
the trade ol the licensed vlctualors as
at present carried on Is one ol a special
temptation, no Christian youth should

POINTERS FROM DEFEAT.
In future campaigns the Conservatives of Canada might find the foi lowing advice from the Toronto Telegram worth taking:
"Canada should have defeated Sir
Wilfrid Laurier on the iniquities and
dangers of tlie Grand Trunk Pacific
deal.
"The Dominion-government deserved to lose on its demerits.
" But did the Dominion opposition
deserve to win on its merits.
"A wise country will never pardon
the faults of 'a'tried government because it doubts tlie virtues of air- untried opposition.
"'Canada [usually"' insists "not only
that the government shall deserve to
lose but that air opposition shall deserve to win.1
■"The,Dominion'opposition simply
did not deserve to win on its own
merits.
"The opposition's merits were few,
of no practical value except its tardy
"aeciaTauroii iur puoric~ownerRmpiirar
saved the day in Ontario.
"In the main the opposition lacked
industry.    It lacked courage, lt was
ofteii lazy, and not seldom cowardly.
"The lesson of the election is that
in Canada an opposition cun seldom
win on the faults of a government.
The Conservatives must learn to
light at Ottawa if they expect to win
in the country. They should defend
the people if they expect the people to
defend them. The, true science of
modern politics docs not consist in
netting behind the corporations but
in getting in front ot tlie people and
staying there."
LONDON A PAGAN CITY.
It was an old subject for discussion,
this pagan London, long" before Archdeacon Sinclair revived the problem
at St, Sepulchre's church recently.
"Church or chapel," lie said "are
only attended by about lrt per cent,
of London's population. That means
that four-fifths of the-people do not
worship God at. all."
Many clergymen ascribe the decline in London's church going to a
weakening of religious belief. But
there is no reason1 to take so pessimis
tic a view,'.. There are many other
causes which affect Sunday attendance, causes which directly arise
from the growth of our vast city,
from the strenuous competition in
'modern business, from tlie nerve fag
and brain fag of the worker.?, and
from alterations,in the manners ami
customs of nil classes of society.
The village church was tlio center
ot the village life a hall'a ccnturv
ago;, and in many parts of the coun
try it remains in. this respect unchanged. The chapel shared and
still shares its.-position. The children are taught their religion in the
Sunday schools by whatever branch
of the Christian creed these estab-

TOHimeiTGs are conmreTetr"ot- "iifani"
tamed. They grow up to associate
Sunday with the old place of worship,
to reverence those who lead and con
duct its services. Few, even of the
youngest, are absent, for the parents,
should they stay at home themselves,
like to get the .children it way for the
morning.
As iii youth, ho is the riper middle
age. The church anrt chapel become
the meeting ground nl the villagers,
separated by scattered farms and
lonely cot'.ages during tbo working
week. They gather before the doors
after service, greeting each other
and saluting those above them in station. Should it well known ligure be
absent, it is understood that he is ill,
and inquiries nro. mudo concerning
him.
The s-ijuire ami his family regularly attend. They may be modern
enough in their views, c.h'cIohs
enough in their religious observances
when in London Cor the. season, hut
011 their own land, among their own
people, they IHI the great pews un-
dcr.ihc ancestral co-«t ul arms just as
their forbear.-* Illled it, fut'.-ui example,
would almost seem that you must
first reform the system under which
wc live Yet if wo give more leisure
through the week, less aid->r to-Commercial and professional existence,
how are wc to hold our own tis a nation against America [and Germany ?
There can never be that reverence
and ail'ection for a London church
that the country people, feel for the
gray old house of God perched upon
the hill and ringed about with whispering elms and melancholy yews.
Their fathers and grandfathers wen-
married there, and now lie buried
under the waving grass of that peaceful acre.
In the old pews they sat as children, fretful under the eye ot tlio
clerk as the sermon droned into
tedium; there were they married,
and at the ancient font their firstborn were Christened. 'The greatest
joys and deepest sorrows of their lives
arc bound up with the village church
ami its graw.yard. And as it is with
them so has it. been with their forebears through the generations.
But in London wc change too
quickly. From one parish to another
we Hit with no regret for broken associations. Where were >•««:. c'.r s:-
ened, where married?   Anient win

"The doctor came a little later.
This poor chap is done for, I'm afraid,
he said, glancing at the prostrate vie-
i tim. Then' he knelt down, lifted one
of tlio man's .closed eyelids, and
peered into a duli, blank, unseeing,'
lifeless eye. Yes, he's dead all rignt.
Take hi in away, said the doctor.
"But tlie. pale lips of tho injured
man moved slightly, and a feeble
voice mnrmured, 'That was my glass
eye, you fool'."
Papa Wouldn't Kick
Out our way theie is a boy whose
mot her is bringing him up according
to the moi-t ennect ideas He came in
the other day with his poi-kclo quite
full of' marbles—{-lassos, ctockios, jaspers and all tlio other kinds boys hold
dear. His mother asked --whoro they'
all came from.
l/won'eiu playing keeps, answered
the boy.
Tho mother was properly shocked
Why, said  sho,   don't,  jou know it's
wrong 10 play for keeps?   It's nothing
but gamblinc, and gambling is wicked
You must t-ivt; them all back or I shall
speak to your father about it.
Oh, that'll be all right, answered the
hoy. Speak to father, lie won't care.
He didn't care a bit about that silver
dish you won at the euchre party, and
1 guess he won't kick at my keeping a
lew old marbles.

YOUNG GIRL'S BRAVE FIGHT
had to (leal with it—the editors of the
religious journals find it a' theme that
. A frail,  slender vgirl, Mi^s Nelson, ! must In? treated in a trenchant manner.
*. one line nisrht early in April, 1903;
sat quietly beside her mother. From
the next room, where the two little
children had'been lett playing, came
a strange grating sound.   The older
, sister stopped to the door, between the
two apartments, only to turn- pa'e
wilh dismay and diorror, for there,
last asleep on fie hearthrug, lay the
little brother and sister, and crawl-
. ing slowly across the Hour toward;
thorn a great, slimy lilig-itor, evidently attracted to the house by the
hope of young kittens or puppies. Its
wicked, stony eyes, critn with baleful light, wore Used* on tho unconscious babies, and tho wide jaws,
open nnd ponderous, dripped with
the foam of eager, unsatisfied greed.
Frantically calling tb the dogs out
side the front door to enter and help
her, tho brave girl caught up the
largo lamp that stood [just within the
mother's room, and hurled it full at
the. horrible, gaping j:iws. Then,
leaping nside to escape the luiious
onslaught thus brought upon herself,
she stooped quick as thought, and
tossed upon the high bed in tlie corner the suddenly roused and frightened children. She turned from r.he
task to find that the infuriated aliga-
tor, diverted from its original purpose and confused' by tlie unexpected
attack, had dashed straight through
the open door and made its way to
the bedside of the helpless, terrified
mother. Without u" moment's hesi
tation the devoted daughter rushed
to her aid.
A shovel of, hot coals from the
glowing lire thrown directly against
the vicious eyes of the angry creature only served to strengthen and
intensify its* fury. Apparently his
entire will was now bent upon the
* destruction of the helpless woman on
tho bed. Tho awful, snapping jaws
were within a few feet of her body
when the desperate girl, returning
from the kitchen with an axe that
had jubt recurred to her memory,

brave girl followed this blow with
others no Jj*.s tolling, When the
still quivering, hut no longer murderous creature hud been reduced to
nb~oluto impotence the entire hou>c
looked as though it had been wrecked

Thus, the Christian Guardian, ropre
stiiitative of MtMhrTdism', savs: "The
political life of this province, with nil ils
vaunted Protestantism, an.!, indeed,
with all its \-muted Methodism, has become a hissing and a by-word1 among
its sister provinces, and among tho nations of tho world, for flagrant and re
pealed instances of politicttrcoriuptioti.
Ontario polities'is a.phrase to call up
to the minds of all who hear it tho dis-
giace.ul revelations which our news
papers have been giving to iho world
of unspeakable rottenness in our public
life. Surely it is time for those who
v.ilue not merely tho good name of this
fair province, but common decency and
common honesty in those who aspire lo
be its public servants and repro.iciitn-
lives, to rim superior to all Macro parly
coiiHideiatioimauil insist that only mun
of- character and honor and probity
shall rece.ivu countenance and support."
Strong words these, but fully jitstilied
by the records of tho election courts."
K'-uuliy lorceful is tho call ol the IY__-
o,\ len.au to the work of politicalrefoim.
It coinpateB the prevalent conuption
to gangrene upon an injured limb—the
life of tho piitieut requiring its removal
ny moans of the surgeon's knife. Continuing, it says: "And the surgeon not
only deals with the (li-"ease locally, but
lie seek:'to tone iipthe whole s\stutn.
Aud this is the wurk which leaders ol
public opinion iu pi ess and  pulpit are
called le do today We very
much mistake tl.e spitit and temper ot
the Presbyterian pulpit if it should keep
silctKo at such a time as this or fait to
make tho eternal truth to vibrate
throughout the land, that 'righteous-
ijcss exaltuth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any pciple.'.''
The Canadian Churchman makes an
earnest appeal to the young men of
Canada "to prove, that Canadians are.
worthy of their name and lineage as the
standard-bearers on this continent of
the great .word power whoso name is
synonymous with pnbhc honor and
private character the world wide
sound." liy thu Canadian Baptist we
are told thai "Christi-in citizenship was
never more needed in Canada than at

A meeting of the directors of the
S.illivun Mining Compaii'' was held at
Spokaiie on Wednesday Nov. 9th. The
Blanket they will pui on the mine- will
be about $400,000.
, .Wild Horse creek as a placer mining
camp, is making a heller showing than
last year, according 10 a statement
made by a prominent mining man.
Each successive foot diiven in Ihe
tunnel of the Koolenay King tivne
shows up better than the last. Hilly
Myers is satisfied wilh ihe outlook.
According to reporls from Tr;i"y
creek, work is lo be resumed on the
Eslella group ol" mines. No delimit*
time has been set for the resumption ol'
operations.
Heavy stockholders in the Sullivan-
mine, who have personally visited the
mine- arc well pleased with the property. In fact they were highly enthused
und were wearing broad smiles, t until
they were assured that it was necessan
lo put up another $150,000 before the
smeller could be completed, and operations resumed at the mine.
The construction of the Kootenay
Centra! railway through the Kootenay
valley will demonstrate the necessity ^
building the Kootenay, Cariboo and
Pacific railway lo connect with the proposed Grand Trunk Pacific. As an indication of the importance of this road,
the immense mining, lumbering and
agricultural resources of the i.ir mirth
are quoted in the summer season reports of it)04.
The old placer camp at Perry creek
maintains considerable importance as a
drift mining district, productive and
prospective and bids fair lo become an
important lode mining center.
Southeast Kootenay is enjoying a
irreut activity, especially up Wild
Horse creek, Hull river and Pern
creek. A large amount of capital is
being expended in developing these
p trticular sections.

Il is safe to say that I wo of Ihe greatest silver-lead mines of the woiij aie

A rich deposit of nickel is about to
lv developed im Wild Morse creek
This deposit is repoitcd to be 10 feel in
width and has a northerly trend, The
deposit has been cross cu( by tunnel and
drift and shows up well to a depth of
40 feel.
Reports from Hull river district says
that, the iron deposit on I'enwick
mountain is"the largest in the Kool-
eiiays; the hematite analysis is from 4S
to 67 per cent nictalic iron, with very
low phosphorus. The ore is pronounced of Hcssemer quality.
Among those whh great future possibilities is the Hull River Mining <V,
Power Co. The company has four
placer leases which will be worked liy
modem hydraulic mining, mul will install a large power plant for electric
lighting and supply power lo mines in
lite Kootenay valley.
The ptikl month has been one of
sU-.'idy progress and development In Ih.-
mining districts ol Southeast Kootenay
and a In-tter feeling prevails, Al Hull

placer mining and the development < f

The lliitish Point of View
There rVa well known story told by
Dean Ramsay years ago of two old
ladies of his chunk
" 'Wits it no' it wonderful ihinjj.'
said of them, 'that the Oreetish were
aye victorious over the French in bailie?'
" 'Not a bit' said the other; 'dinna
ye ken the Dreelihh say their prayers
before giien into battle?'
" 'A\e.' returned tlie lirst; 'bul
canna the Frenchmen say their prayers
as wee!?'  -
" The reply was, 'Hoot! Jabberin'
bedies! Wha could understan' them?'"
The   sermon   Sunday   evening  will
have special reference to Thanksgiving.

A  Famous Victory,,
The news thrilled all St.  Petersburg;
Front mouth to mouth it passed,
In limit and street, "tlie Russian licet
Mas won a light'at'last!"
A crowd of bloody fishermen
Attacked us in the night,
But'we stood by to do 01'die
And sank them left and right.
And like that hero of (he west,
Unlvnila'd and grim,
Who kilted a sheep, brave man, to keep
The sheep from biting him,
We fell upon those fishermen,
And shot and shells Hew thick,
And bravely   fought,   what. long   we
sought-—
A foe that we could lick,
No more we blush with shame because
The evil Japanese.
Left not a ho.tl of ours afloat
l.'rton the eastern seas;
No iuoiv we hear uilh  humbled  pride
Thai Kuiopaikin's men
Have manlud to light, and  overnight
Have traveled hack again.
For victory nt Ia:»t is ours,
.\«ul iht-ugli the light began
With peril for our men-o'-war,
We did not lose a man;
Wed may the Kuimoii e,'i;;le scream
In the tnip',nan vast;
Hurrah, we've lie.tt!   Our gallant Heel
