No Doubt Now as to the Date of Polling

in regard to the report that has
been so industriously eirculatctd by
'���''"''nl "friends of labor" that Foley would withdraw and allow Galllher   to  win    against    McNeill,    The
world wishes to announce officially,
that under no eirennistiinees will   the

The speaker laid he believed Hint
UK  workers, who    outnumbered nil
other classes in the community, had a
right to more consideration', than had
been hitherto shown them. The
worker was entitled to a just share of
what he produced. The government
has the right in time of war to call on
the worker to place himself between
it and the peril that confronts it. If
this is so. lie held that the government was in duly bound to throw all
possible safeguards and wise laws
around the toiler, so that his rights
might be protected in time of peace.
If it did not do this, the workers had
a right to send their own representatives to make laws for them. This,
be declared, was one of the reasons
for the existence of the Independent
Labor party. (Applause long and
loud.) The worker assumed all the
rcsponsibilties of citizenship, and
should be protected.
lle paid his respects to the press,
which he declared was once the beacon light of humanity, but now was
turned into the mouthpieces of the
monopolies, and stood ready to foully
besmear the men who bravely stood
up for that which was just and right.
Mr. Foley'sald the law of the land
sanctioned a man becoming a member
of organized labor, and yet there
were places where members of labor
unions were followed by spies, and if
a worker was seen talking to him he
was discharged and was turned out
into the world without means of
making a living with the brand of an
industrial Cain upon his brow, lle
held that it was one of the duties of
the government to protect, the worker
from such outrages as these.
Mr. Foley went after the Conservative party and declared that it was a
corpse, although Mr. MaeNeill evident- (
|y imagined that It was afflicted only
with suspended animation. During
,:.. Il.ii!> years that it Was 11, powfe*
it bad done nothing for the workers, I
and nothing could be expected from
it. lie said that they bud built up aj
high protective tariff in order to pro-
tcct Canadian manufacturers and bad
then brought ill the very people they i
were competing against. Then he i
told how they boasted of the building J
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The
Conservatives bad given the company
1100,000,000 in money and lands, and
then gave it 110,000,000 more in order
that it might surrender a monopoly.
Thus, he said, they bad given it twice
what it cost to build the railway, and
what had been the result'.' A gigantic
OCtupUB that is one of the greatest
menaces to liberty in Canada, lu addition to this the railway company
brought thousands of Chinese to construct the western end of the railway,
and these had remained to compete
and to assist in degrading the Canadian laliorcr.'and to deprive him of his
birthright "Mr. MacNcill had started out on bis canvass and asks you to
restore1that party to power, and he
has with him as an assistant the Lord
Mayor.    (Cheers and applause.)
Mr. Foley next sacrificed the Liberals. The alien uct.be declared,was as
nsless as a cow's tail on a locomotive.
I When the Hungarians were sent to
the Sloean during the labor troubles
there Premier Laurier was appealed
I to to prevent the infraction of the law
and he did nothing Afterwards he
sent an agent into the Slocan who privately Informed the mine owners that
they must not import any more luhoiv
ers.' lle next took up the strike of
the fishermen on the Eraser river, and
gave an account of the causes of the
trouble, lle told how the Japanese
and Chinese were brought into the
country and made citizens inside of
three weeks in order that they might
be able to lake the places of Canadians on the fishing banks. This action, which he held was with the con-
nivanceof Hie (loverninciit.he saiil was
wrong in tbe extreme, lie counseled
bis hearers to not vote for a party
guilty of such actions.

Vancouver, II. C, Oct. IB.���J, F.
Reilly, a prominent American mining
engineer, representing the Alaska
Transportation Company, is in the
city. He has recently returned from
tho Klondike, where he spei.t fourteen
months examining claims for the company mentioned, which is one of the
largest of those interested in the
north. He went over, in all, ;isu
quarts locations in the Yukon country, part of these being in American
territory, and he has some decidedly
original things to say regarding the
Mr. Reilly states that the Klondike
country is a permanent mining region,and tl at while it will take many
years to work out the creek placers,
tbe bill claims, many of which are
miles 1n extent, can be worked for
years to come with profit. A great
deal of machinery is coming into the
country, and as wages decrease and
transportation charges become more
reasonable many of the properties that
are now practically abandoned can be
worked with profit. In the bill back
of Lousetown,which is a part of Dawson, he has panned himself from three
to eight cents to the pan, but there is
no water available there, and, while
the property is not worked now, there
is no doubt but that in the near future
some arrangement will be devised
whereby it can be worked with profit,
Mr. Keilly says that ho certainly
would have remained in the country
to purchase bill claims, had be known
that the government would have put
them on the market.
Regarding the quartz prospects, Mr.
Reilly says laconically, "There is no
quartz In the country." Continuing,
he suid, "I do not know why the A.
T. Company,which I represent, should
spend their time and money investigating doubtful properties, of quartz located in the Klondike, when there are
such excellent properties close to the
Coast cities, as I have seen in Kootenay and in the Mount Sicker district
on Vancouver Island."
Mr. Reilly docs not believe to any
extent in possibilities for hydraulic
mining in the Klondike. Wages had
now fallen in the summer from 8!> to
g:t and &3.60 per day, and when transportation wns cheaper and other expenses decreased, what were thought
at present to be good hydraulic claims
would be worked in the usual way.
There are some, of course, that might
pay, but most of them were ridiculous. There would be from six to
eight feet of black muck overtopping
four or five feet of alluvial gravel, and
this was worth from two to five cents
a yard. This would not pay, and from
a general knowledge of   the   situation
he could not give any encouragement
to hydraulic mining in the country.
Mr. Reilly recently visited Eagle
City, Alaska, and the new Tananii
country, and he found many claims
that had been; abandoned, because ,,f
high wages, were now being woikcd
very successfully, nnd in some instances with very satisfactory results.
American creek was staked, the surface of Its diggings skimmed over and
then it was abandoned for Nome.   But
I go, f the men who   had   no   money
I,, reach Nome, and   had   perforce   to
sue in the country, relocated some of
the properties. In August, be was
watching work on one claim when he
saw ft nugget worth SISI taken out,
nnd another was picked up worth Sl to.

Upton's Challenge  Said to
Ask That the Race Be
In August.
New York, Oet. 15.���There arc expressions of satisfaction by officials
and members of the New York Yacht
Club because of Sir Thomas Lip ton's
new challenge. The yacht club officials have felt sure that Sir Thomas
would make a second attempt to "lift
the cup" next year. They were not
quite prepared, however, to believe
that the challenge would be sent before December,' as that would cover
the necessary ten months1 notice required by the club. Evidently the
trials of the Shamrock in October
weather last; year have caused Sir
Thomas Lipton to wish foi the match
lo be sailed much earlier. The race
may be sailed in August, it is said.
August is a busy month with the
New York Yacht Club. Its easterly
cruise takes place then and before the
squadron is disbanded one half of tlie
month has expired. This easterly outing and its squadron runs have always been favored occasions for trials
of the cup candidate or the new yacht
built to defend the cup. During tbe
orulse tbe great races for the Goelet
cups have taken place in the past and
now these have given way to the Faster cups.
After the cruise there was another
month or so in which to remedy defects, if any, and complete the hard
work of tuning up the. boat for her
meeting with the challenger. Whether the club will see its way clear to
accede to the request, if it is made,
that the races for the cup be sailed in
August next year, is,therefore, a matter of conjecture.
Mr. .1. Frederick Tains.a member of
tlie New York and Scwanhaka-Coriu-
thiau Yacht Clubs, said :
"I have no doubt Sir Thomas Lip-
ton's challenge will promptly he accepted. Sir Thomas is very popular
with American yaobtmen, ami he certainly deserves another chance nt the
"Of course it is too soon to express
an opinion whether or not a new
yacht will be built to defend the cup
against tbe now Shamrock, but I honestly think it will be very hard to
build a better boat than the Columbia. It would certainly take a much
faster yacht than the old Shamrock to
beat her.
"Hut If it be deemed best to build a
new defender, there will bo no trouble in finding plenty of men ready and
willing to furnish the necessary
money. I think Sir Thomas will have
a hotter chance next year than any of
the challengers that have crossed the
ocean in years past. You sec he will
have the benefit of last year's experience, and if he has Captain Cringe,
who sailed the Shamrock last year,
and the Mineola this year, his boat
will have a great advantage.
"As for hifl reported request that
the race be sailed in August, 1 believe
that it should be granted. There is always a better breeze in August than
in October and the chances for an exciting race are far more favorable. In
August there would be small chance
for flukes,Which proved so vexing last
"1 am delighted that the prospects
foi a race next year are so good, and
I am sure every good yachtsman shares
my sentiment in this subject. Sir
Thomas   may be assured   of   the   best
treatment over here, and if ho wins
the cup it could not be in better
hands. "
"Will some one build a new yacht
to defend the cup?" said Mr. Chester
"Well, it is rather early to talk
about that, but I should think it likely. Americans are not in the habit
of using old things if they can have
better; they are too enterprising.
There would   be   no   difficulty   about
raising money for a new defender if it
Is   decided to build one."

Buyers   From   Everywhere

Tien Tsin, Sept. 7. ���Lured
prospects of rich bargains and loot,
large numbers of buyers are reaching
Pekin and Tien Tsin from Shanghai
and other cities in the south. Most of
them are acting under cable instructions from dealers in America and Europe, the most exaggerated reports
having been spread of the value of the
plunder taken in the sacking of these
two north of China cities. It is safe
to predict that Europe and America
Will be Hooded with curios and relics

There is today any quantity of stuff
for sale, but practically all of it could
be bought in any curio or oriental
shop at home. In fact by street and
in the invlronsof tlie camps, soldiers
of all powers gather in little groups,
bartering for the spoils of war. It is

These little extemporized bazaars are
extremely picturesque. There have
been few real bargains and these have
been in furs. Some exceedingly handsome fur robes have been secured at
low prices, Persian lamb and mink,as
the dressed bide of the unshorn lambs
is loyally termed, arc probably the
most valuable of the furs of this region, while sable and n little ermine
lias found its way into the hands of
those earliest on the scene. There is a
curious absence of bronzes and porcelain. One has a bard bunt to find a
bit of either, and then it is usually of
an inferior grade. The explanation is
found in the fact that the common
soldier is not usually a connoisseur
of it, and many dingy vases of real
value and bits of   priceless bronze   lie
untouched  ami shattered under tbe
shell torn walls of the native city here
and of Pekin.

"Unless the unexpected happens,"
says Tbe Greenwood Miner,������ Mr. MaeNeill will carry the constituency by
11 large majority." This is a ease iii
which the unexpected will not happen. 	
The Liberal machine is perfect in
all its parts. Mr. II. II. Cook says he
was asked to pay ten thousandedollars
in consideration of liis appointment
to the Senate, lie refused to countenance the dishonest transaction, and
tbe appointment was not made.
Mr. Tarte is hedging. From a Fran-
Oomania he has transformed himself
Into an ardent Imperialist. He has
constituted himself the special champion of the Imperial cause. It is impudent, but if Mr. Tarte were not au-
daclous he would be nothing. Whether
he has himself seen the mischief he
has wrougnt the Liberal cause by so
treely proclaiming his sympathies
with France aud his displeasure at
the Canadian feeling that compelled a
South African contingent, or whetbei
other leaders of the party recognised
the danger and Insisted on a seeming
recantation of his disloyal utterances,
will probably remain a party secret.
Whatever the iniluenee, he now poses
as an Imperialist of the first water,
and with characteristic Tarteian audacity is declaring that Conservative
success in the pending elections
'would be a calamity to the cause of
Imperial unity." That unity, it appears, can only be preserved and ce
mented by the return to power of tin-
party of which Mr. Tarte, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, Mr. Ilourassa, and Mr. Monet
arc the chief pillars.
This hot Imperialist who is spending his days and nights in the effort
to preserve the unity of the Empire is
the man who Hies the French Hag on
Canadian Government vessels; who declares that if it is necessary to be
British in order to remain a Canadian
Minister he would cease to be Hritish;
who says that the French Hag is his
Hag. aud the only one to whieh his
heart owes allegiance; who used all
bis iniluenee with Sir Wilfrid Laurier. and persuaded him to make pub-
lie announcement that the Government found it impossible to send a
contingent to South Africa. Speaking
in France of himself and his eoinpa-
tnots. only two or three months ago,
he said: "We represeut over there
the French of Europe, and I do not
think I am mistaken in saying that
before twenty-five years we shall form
the majority." And again: "There
are two millions of French people in
Canada. On national feast days, not
a house but is decorated with French
colors. Sec tho Province of Quebec.
It becomes more French, for French
immigrants are coming in each day.
and when the English aro nut in a
majority in a country, where they are
not masters, they get out." All
of which means Mr. 'Tarte is hopeful
that in twenty-live years the English
will be driven out, and Canada will
become a French colony or an independent French nation.
lu an interview in a i'aris paper be
said: "Why should London become
the centre of the world, rather than
Paris, the city of civ'.lisation, of liberty, of justice?" Asked what Canada would do in the event of war between Oreat Britain and France, Mr.
Tarte replied that she would stand
neutral. 'This is the man who would
save the country from the Conservatives, in order to preserve the unity
of I lie Empire, He is also the loan
who pipes for Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
dancing. His friend Mr. Monet says:
"Shame upon England for this Boer
war; shame upon Canada   for  having
taken any part in it." It is to be
hoped Mr. Galllher likes the company
lie is in.
The Toronto Globe tries to give the
impression that Mr. II. II. Cook's defection is owing to personal disappointment. "He conceives that he lias
not been fairly used by the Liberal
party," it says, "and he takes this
means of showing bis resentment."
The Toronto Globe should be the last
to misrepresent or slander Mr. Cook's
character. It is not so many years
ago Tbe Globe people were glad to get
his money to keep their paper alloat,
and to strengthen their Directorate by
Lbe addition of bis name, biH iniluenee, and his advice.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in behalf of
the Government of which he is Premier, denies that Mr. Cook was asked
to pay ten thousand dollars for a Sen-
atorship, and challenges proof of the
statement. This is a combination of
quibbling and bluff. An a qulbbler
Sir Wilfrid is a past master, and if
the matter rested between him and
Mr. Cook those who know both would
not hesitate a moment which to believe. It is not likely that any member of tbe Government or any person
commissioned by it went to Mr. Cook
with a demand for ten thousand dollars. That is not the way these
things arc done. It was much more
roundabout; doubtless, extremely
roundabout, as the transaction was a
delicate one, and it wns necessary
that the I lovernment should be in a
position to disavow it should it become known. But if Mr, Cook says
that he was approached in the manner alleged, no blustering denials by
a man as notoriously untruthful as
Sir Wilfrid Laurier will operate a
feather's weight in the mind of those
who know Mr. Cook's record.
Mr. II. II. Conk lias given out a letter in which he declines that he can
no longer support the Liberal party.
This is one of the most Significant
defections that has occurred in the experience of the party since Confederation. Mr. Cook has been a stalwart
offthe stalwarts. Three times he opposed and defeated the late D'Alton
McCarthy in North Simcoe, and only
went down before him in 18T8 because of the tidal wave of the National Policy. He represented Bast Simcoe in both the Ontario Legislature
and t'ne Dominion Parliament. When
the party called upon him he always
responded, lle belonged to a family
of stalwart Liberals, whose wealth
was the chief factor in maintaining
the organisation of the party for a
number of years. Hack in tho early-
eighties, when their fortunes were
low, it was the Cooks more than any
others who kept them together and inspired new life into them. Edward
Blake, if nt liberty to do so, would
testify to the truth of this. And now
Mr. Cook feels himself forced out of
the party he served so well,by the hypocrisy and trickery of that party's
present leaders. During bis short
term of four years. Sir Wilfrid Laurier has made more Tories than tho
late Sir .loliu Maedonald did in all bis

N announcing to my friends and customers that on the 10th of November I
will open a large and magnificently appointed Jewelry Store, on the corner
of Baker and Stanley Streets, m the premises now occupied by the Canada
Drug and Book Company, I desire to make it known that THIS WEEK I
will inaugurate a SLAUGHTER SALE of the stock in my present store, such
as has been never before equalled in Nelson.
This will be a GENUINE REMOVAL SALE, as I have a large
stock now on the road for my new store, and must SACRIFICE the SPLENDID LINE of GOODS on my shelves and in my show cases.
Have been cut in the most reckless manner, and as our stock comprises
everything in the Jewelry Line, you can surely find something you want
at way below the usual price.
We nave three shelves full of all sorts of HANDSOME CLOCKS, in
ONYX, MARBLE, BRASS and WOOD with BRASS MOUNTINGS. They are all guaranteed timepieces and artistically mounted.
They are beauties.    See them!
Our PLATEDWARE is beautiful and we have a large lot of it that
must go.    Anything you need for the table we have.
