Psyche arrived in New York waters in

kind visited her.    Capt.  l'elly came to
anchor at the foot ot West _">th Street,
New York, where he saw   two French
warships lying,  As sunn ns he anchored Capt. Telly lircd a salute of 81 puns
(intended as a salute to  tne American
flag)   to   which he got   no   response.
He then saluted  the  Frenchmen who
returned the ualute.   Capt.   l'elly  has

a desire   that   the  substance  of  this

The Conservatives have every reason
to feel verv well satisfied with the
result of the meeting at tlie Opera
Rouse last night. There was a large
attendance and each of tbe three can-
Parliamentary honors had

MaeNeill, the Conservative standard-
bearer, contented himself with only a
few remarks, but Mayor (loodeve, of
Kossland,completely carried the meeting with him, with a mass of facts,
eloquently arrayed, that were simply
unanswerable, It is doubtful if anywhere in Canada during the campaign
the Oovernment has received such an
arraignment in such a short address
as that delivered by Mr. Qoodeve   last
night.
It was a splendid meeting inasmuch
as every speaker was accorded a very
attentive hearing. There were no in
terruptions except of applause and
there was not a great deal of that.
Mr, John Toye made an acceptable
chairman and besides tho speakers,
there were on the stage Messrs. YV.
A. Maedonald, John Elliott, Chris
MorrUon, J. E. Annable, John A.lrv
ing and H. G. Neelands. ,
It fell to Mr. MacNcill's unpleasant |
lot to open the meeting and to get the
audience  warmed.    The  Conservative
oandidate has   two   important  things
to his credit���a   fine   appearance   and
a  pleasant and lucid   manner   of   delivery.   He first promised to be a good
Tory all the time and  them went into
figures to show that  all   the promises
of tbe   Libcial   party   regarding   the
tariff, expenditure   aud   public   debt,
were violated and said that if tbe people of  lainula  returned  the  Govern-
ment, after it hns broken   its   solemn
pledges,   then    hereafter   tlie   voters
would put a premium on tlie   non-fulfillment of promises  and need not  be
surprised if no more   political   morality was displayed by either  party.    A
few of  tbe  choicest  scandals  of   tlie
Government were   touched   upon aud
Mr. MaeNeill    pass.d    along   to   tlie

others the question of   redistribution,

which was well delivered and very frequently applauded.
At this juncture James Wilks was
called upon to speak in tho interests
of Mr. Foley's candidature. Mr.
Wilks occupied an enviable position
as lie could let go and get after both
the great parties. This he did and
spared neither. He said that he bad

yesterday at Cranbrook, charged with
embezzlement    and    remanded   until
November 1st being   allowed   bail   in
the amount of 91,500.    Medhurst   was
until last July the agent for the   Canadian   I'aeilie   at   Cranbrook and was
thoroughly trusted by   tlie   company.
During the latter part   of  July he resigned    his  position   and   left  Cranbrook.   After he left it   was discovered that be   had   been   embezzling the
company's  funds   and orders were issued for bis arrest.  At this time Medhurst was up in the   Cariboo   country
where  lie   was  at  work   with a construction   corps.    Upon the   advice of
friends he  decided   to get   out of  the
country and go to New Mexico, where
it seems that he could not   have  been
extradited for embezzlement.   A short
time ago he   came down   to   Ashcroft

of leaving for the   States.    Just as be

Lady William Ileresford, (formerly
Lillian. Duchess of Marlborough I, has
brought action against the young
Duke of Marlborough to recover the
money which she spent in   Improving
Blenheim palace during the life  time
of the last duke.
The matter came up originally when
the present duke hucceded to the title
but owing   to   the friendly   relations
existing   between   the   duke and   the
Stepmother   it    was   temporarily   arranged.    Since the duke's marriage to
Consuelo Vanderbllt, it was reported,
an   estrangement   has   grown   up  between Lady Beresford   and   her   stop-
son.    On more than one occasion it   Is
said   the   young     American    duchess
snubbed   her   country   woman,    Lady
Beresford,   who   was    formerly   Mra.
Ilaiiicrslcy,   of   New   York, until   the
latter determined   she   could   not submit to such treatment any  longer and
she now asks the  law   to   compel   her
stepson   to   return   the   amounts
interested in mining operations.    Many
inquiries  were   made   by   prospective
investors  and   out  of a stock of 5,000
pamphlets, descriptive of  the  various
mines in the district and   the   various
advantages   held   out here   to the investor not one was left on the closing
day of the   Fair.    As   those  who saw
the exhibit   were   from   many   slates
the pamphlets were distributed over a
I large field where   they will   certainly
prove of   great   advantage   to the district and city.   In fact several important deals are already in   progress as a
reBiilt of the exhibit.
Mr. Dowsing has brought back with
him   some   excellent   photographs

were awarded here.    These   have heen
put on display in the window's of tlie
Canada   Drug   and  Book Company, so
that the people of Nelson can at   least

A DISTINCT FAILURE.
There has been some cross-firing in
The London Times between Mr. Harold Cox Secretary of the Cobden Club,
am! General Laurie, a former member of the Canadian Parliament .who
was recently elected to the British
House of Commons, They bad been
discussing the preferential tariff, in
regard to which Mr. Cox claims that
tlie General   misapprehended what  he
said.   S e of tho remarks of the Sec
retary of the Cobden Club Bhould
prove of particular interest to those
Canadian politicians who find it ne-
cessary to discuss our trade with
Great llritain. Notwithstanding the
much vaunted preferential that trade
is un the decline, if not absolutely
then relatively. "The two great com-
petitors for the Canadian market are
the United Kingdom and tho l'nited
States," says Mr. Cox. "In spite of
the so-called British preferential tar-
ill', the proportion of tbe total trade
secured by the United States continues
to increase and the proportion secured
by the l'nited Kingdom continues to
decline." Tbe Conservatives have
been making this contention, nnd it
is interesting to note that they are
supportd bj a witness who is friendly
to the Canadian Liberals, whose leader carried away with him a Cobden
Club medal when he returned from
England three years ago. Of course
General Laurie has to admit that our
imports from tbe l'nited States are
growing, while those from the United
Kingdom aro becoming less, but ex
plains that this is owing to the fact
that the United States furnishes us
with raw materials which are admitted free, while our imports from the
United Kindgom are mainly manufactured products. "In other words,"
rejoins Mr. Cox, "the Canadian financial policy is to encourage the trade
of the United States and not that of
the United Kingdom. That is exactly
my contention. "
Another subject in dispute between
thum furniBhcd occasion for some re
murks in this column a few days ago
We quote from Mr. Cox's letter: "Tin
oilier important point with which
General Laurie deals is tbe question
of the treaty now being negotiated
between Great Britain and Germany.
II" complains that this treaty excludes
Canada from the benefits of tlio most-
favorcd nation clause which Germany
extends to all other parts of the British Empire. Hut surely this is the
Inevitable consequence of Canada's
own aetion. Under the old treaty
between England and Germany. Canada was compelled to receive German
goods   on   the same  terms as   British
g is. she objected to that compulsion and persuaded the British Government to denounce the treaty. She
is now free to make what terms she
chooses with other countries. But
they are ulso free; and    Germany ean
nol I xpected to give to Canada that
equality of treatment whieh Canada
refuses to Germany. Nor is it easy to
see how Lord Salisbury could have
acted otherwise than he appears to
have done. Germany oilers a treaty
giving considerable coinniureinl ail van-
> ' " I, Dot to the United Kingdom
alone, but to the whole British Umpire with the single exception of Canada.     Does General   Laurie   seriously
i tend thai   Lord   Salisbury ought to
have rejected these proffered benefits
affecting the interests of India and
Australia and South Africa, as well as
of Great Britain, solely for the sake
of upholding the Canadian preferential tariff?"
These are not Ihe views of a hostile
critic, lle is naturally friendly lo
the Canadian Liberal party, and if
partial al, all would he partial tu
them rather than to the Conservatives,     liis views arc   also those of   a
trade expert, if we may be  permitted
tn roi ii sueh an expression. The Nlim
nml substance of bis judgment is that
the preferential has failed In the professed purpose to encourage our trade
with Great Britain, anil nut only that
luit has made for us a commercial
enemy of Germany, who is giving
treaty privileges to the rest of the
Empire   to   tbt exclusion of   Canada.
'i i uiy ii cusuut be said that tbe trade
policy of tho Laurier Government is
making for the advantage of the Empire, ami least of all for our own advantage.    It is a failure all around.
Mr. Hugh John Maedonald is a Conservative and accepts the political doctrines of his party; ho is therefore a
protectionist in principle, und BO declared himself in bis speeches in the
East. Returning to Manitoba, to his
own people, be told them that if
elected he would use all the influence
in bis power to have the duties on
agricultural implements wholly abolished. Two classes of people, the funny ones and the silly ones, soe in that
what they represent to bo a gross inconsistency, saying in effect that Mr.
Maedonald p.,.fosses to be a protctiou-
ist in the manufacturing East and a
free trader at home among the farmers. There is no inconsistency. Implements arc the .aw material for the
farmers, and it is a principle of both
parties to admit raw material free.
The farmers of Manitoba and the Territories have frost,drought, and heavy
freight rates to contend against, and
altogether have a hard time of it: it
is creditable no less to his political
discernment than to his kindly consideration of the hardships of the people
among whom he lives Unit l.e would
wish to relieve them of a fiscal burden
that can he removed by tho hand of
man. And when he says be will use
his iniluenee to that end, those who
know him have no doubt he will keep
his word.
A   correspondent   of    The   London
Times explains why times are good in
Canada:    "The   sensational   discover
ies   of   gold   in   the    Klondike,   the
equally important though more slowly
developed   discoveries of   gold, silver,
and   coal   in the   Kootenay.   Cariboo,
anil Crow's   Nest Districts of   British
Columbia,   tbe improvement of   agricultural conditions   in the Northwest,
the revival of manufacturing  activity
throughout    the   Eastern   Provinces,
ball all contributed to produco a   general feeling  of   buoyancy  and   confidence   in   the   future."   Sir    Wilfrid
Laurier, under  a   temporary delusion
that he is Providence, is taking credit
for all this.    It   was l.e who   put   the
gold in the   Klondike,   and   the   rich
minerals   in   liritisli    Columbia,   and
gave   the   good"   crops,     and   revived
manufacturing activity.   And his candidates are worshipping this new   Divinity  and   declaring    that    all    he
claims is true.  And his simple followers   swallow   it   all.    Mr.     MaeNeill
made an earnest   endeavor   to correct
this   folly   in   his speech   last   night,
but the poor dupes  will go on believing. ________________
AN ERROR CORRECTED.
A Voter Can Not Vote  Any Where   in
tho Constituency.
The Miner was in error yesterday
in its article on the new ballots, and
stands corrected hy Mr. II. W. R.
Moore, secretary of Mr. Gallibcr's
campaign committee, who writes as
follows:
Editor Miner :
Sir,���An error which is calculated
to mislead crept into your article on
"The new ballots" in yesterday's issue. You say "Thus a Nelson voter
can vote at Trail, or a Greenwood voter could vote here." This is not correct. A voter can vote anywhere in
his riding, but not anywhere in the
constituency. Thus a Ymir or Kuh-
kanook man can vote at Nelson, but
not at Trail.
Section 00 of the Dominion Elections Act,   l'.ioo, says:
Where there is a voter's list each
eleotpr shall,  subject to  the nrovla
ions contained in the next following
section of this Act, he entitled to vote
at the polling station of the polling
division or oue of the polling divisions, upon the list of voters for which
his name is entered us such voter,
and at no other, except as otherwise
provided by paragraph (f) of Section
a of The Franchise Act, 1H0H.
The two exceptions mentioned have
no hearing   on Ihe   point   raised.     As
this matter    has   heen    the   cause   of
much   enquiry   and     some   inisunder
standing,  I hope you   will   find   room
for this.

1 ��as only the other day that I heard
w.v an- wherefore, and Mr.Anna-
belng  broached  on   the  matter,
I-a to li'll the whole story.    You see,
lr ,\. was once an editor himself; ho
|a9Bole manager of a paper  in Oniric) and his experience was so thrill-
hg that the effects of it hate not  yet
lorn off.    The   experience   was short
Lit very exciting.
Jit was sometime, away back   in the
lark ages,when an election campaign
as raging all over  Canada   and Mr.
nna-le was toachiug school at Pump-
11 Junction or some over agricultural
kropollB.   A  man   was  running  a
iwupaper in  the  neighborhood   and
,8 showing signs of an abnormal de-
lopment  of  independence   and the
��1 Tories who  owned   the    great
toral weekly decided titat, in the invests  of  their party,   they   would
ve to give   their   editor   a holiday
." after the   election.    Then   came
e 1 lestion   of   replacing  him   and
ling Annable  was   the  unanimous
������ o'ee.   So ;, couple ot rural  capital-
isb   drove   to   Watermelon   Junction
���nil broke the news   to  Annable   that
He was editor-in-ehief,   news  editor,,
���ty editor, police court reporter, fun-
By man, exchange editor, society  edi-
lor. answer-to-iiueries man and everything else on the staff of the   Cucum-
Ber   Courier.   Amiable   accepted  his
loners with becoming  grace   and the
lien drove away in high glee with the
Bromise that the school teacher would
Hartle the journalistic world and set-
Be the political destinies of   the   Do-
piuion iu the next   issue of the Cour-
!r.
Amiable slept well that night, and
Irramod of the glories he was about
��0 win. Li the morning he declared
uiliilay until after the campaign
kinl drove away from Squash Junction
to Cucumber Corners to enter upon his
pew duties.
Now Annable : ad read a great
newspapers and was well ae-
Hualnted with them from that end of
|t. And like most readers of newspapers���in fact all readers,particularly
rmirsel.*��� e was quite sure he could
Inn any o o of them much better than
Die people that were engaged in the
vork themselves. lie therefore looked forward with eagerness to his
phance. lie had well delined ideas���
gleaned from jokes in funny papers���
[that scissors were all that were required. So before going to the Courier
olliee he visited ^the store at the Corners and bought a pair of scissors of
the varioty used for shearing sheep.
ile was very cool and collected as he
approached the oflu e but had developed quite a perspiration by the time he
Teae, ed the editor's chair.
lie " .id a couple of pair of scissors
Ion the table and was just wondering
(why it had not struck him that the
jotlice might have already been supplied before he made his purchase
I when a "Whatcherwant" behind him
made him start.
A gentleman dressed In a leather
apron and printer's ink stood i i the
doorway that divided one half of
the oflice from the other and sized up
the school teacher, who now summoned all his latent power, and replied :
"I am going to be the editor of this
paper until after tho campaign. Who
are you?"
"Oh I I didn't know who yer wero.
I'm Jim Smith, the foreman. (Had
to know yer. You'd better getcher
coat off and sail in for I want some
copy. The farmors' column ain't In
yet and I want it P, 1). (j., or we
cau't get 'erup. I've been sorting

is ready for the press already. Old

for him; we kill Jones this week, but
he comes in again when the times
gets good. I cut a few things out of a
magazine to keop going and now
want editorial. We'll knock off a few
extra this week."
"1 think you are right," replied
the new editor ob Jim retired. "1
wonder what the deuce that fellow
was talking about," he soliiloqulzed
and the horizon began to darken.
Hut that ono idea of clipping something out of somotlilng came to his
rescue and seizing the lirst paper he
came to he wcilded his shear* and
commencud. When the papor lay
in a little pile before hiin he surveyed Ills work with satisfaction and
looked around for the boll to call the
olliee boy. As there was no bell he
called him by hand. The oflice boy
appeared���Jim Smith was the ofllco
boy���and took the pile as tho editor
said, "Copy."
"Now 1 suppose I'vo got to write
something," said Annable and procuring some copy paper and sharp-

sold cheap, but are dear at any price, because ihcy contain alum, a corrosive poison,
not wish to stop lifter his thoughts
got going, he was ahout to commence
when the printer���Jim Smith was the
pi'nter���came In.
'Sny," he saitl, "what's all this
stuff you gave me?"
'Copy," said the editor confidently.
'Well you've give me enough to
keop me setting for a wee'.c and anyway you cut this stuff out of our last
week s edition."
'Oh! Did I? Well, here's something about a hair-breadth escape, set
it up, must give the people something
exciting you know," and the young
editor began to lose his confidence in
his gigantic shears.
"Now for an editorial," ho muttered as the printer returned to his case.
Once more lie prepared himself. After chewing the end off his pencil he
wrote���"This country needs"���there
he stuck. He was well up on the political questions thnt were agitating
the public mind but it was a different
proposition pt'tting them or. paper.
After gazing at what ho had .written
for a quarter of an hour he tore up
the paper and commenced again���
"The need ot the country"���(scratched out as no good.) "What this country needs"���(ten minutes elapse during which Annable thought the
printer made a terrific noise.dropping
the type into his stick)���"This country needs"���"Say Smith," he shouted in desperation to the foreman,"for
Heavens' sake tell me what, this infernal country needs?"
"Rain," and the typo continued to
fall into tho stick.
Annable sank back in the chair
with a groan and just then the dour
opened and in walked a farmer.
"Howdy? Just sold two sows, fine
animals too, and thought I'd drop in
uml pay my sub���"
"I don't care a continental If you
sold your whole, confounded farm
and want to pay a hundred subscriptions," shouted Annable, threateningly waving his .shears, "(let out!
Don't you Beo I'm writing an editorial?"
The farmer beat a hasty retreat
and tho editor again got to work.
This time he completed one sentence
and was fairly launched on the second
when Jim appeared.
"Buy, this yer story you gave mo
about a hair-breailth escape cuds up
with tho bloke gcttin' saved with
l'orkey's Peculiar l'ellets. I've got it
all set but the last sentence. What'll
1 do?"
"Oh, kill himr or anything, only
get out," replied Amiable. Tho editorial was uguin under way when
Smith shouted "Copy!" In a voice
that rcsemblod the colliding of two
ohalnsof iliiiii.b-ilic.lt'. At least so
thought Annuble and he jumped about
four feet. He grew desperate again
and seizing the first paper he came to
he clipped   out   a couple of editorials
and gave them to the printer.
There was some more hard thinking
during which Annable completely disposed of all Alexander McKenzie's
claims to support and ho was in the
middle of a most eulogistic dissertation on tho manifold virtues of Sir
John Maedonald when tho uhequiti-
ous Smith again appeared.
"Where's that proof?" ho asked.
"That what?"
"That proof."
"What's that?"
Smith gave ono despairing look at
the editor and after gathering up a
few score pieces of paper on which
"country" and "needs" were written
in profusion, he produced the proof.
"Read it," he said, and handing it
to Annable   left the room.
"Finished readin' it?" he asked a
few minutes later.
"Yes," replied Annable, "rather
good,"
"Why didu't you mark the mistakes
in it?"
"What mistakes?"
Smith sat down on the tabic, mopped his brow, and gave the editor a les
son in proof reading. When he had
finished he produced a Webster dictionary and turning tothe page where
tile proof reading marks are, loft the
proof, dictionary and Amiable together. When Smith was again bnsy sot
ting type, Annable quietly gathered
up his half written editorial, scissors
and copy paper and stole out on tiptoe, leaving the foreman, printer and
olliee boy to do us he pleased.
Tho article wus finished in the solitude of tho bar of the inn and thut
night the editor had tho only real
nightmare he ever experienced, lie
'elt rather sheepish as ho came down
next morning, but the job printer-
Jim Smith was tho job printer���hud
nothing to say. He took the editorial, sot it, read the proof himself and
then   locked up the forms.
Annable helped tho pressman���Jim
Smith was the pressman���and was
rather proud of tho first puper that
wns run off. Ho seated hlinealf at the
desk nnd leaned hack to peruse his editorial work. He was rather struck
with the force and stylo of his own
short ono but cold shivers ran np and
down his opine ns he rend those he
hud clipped. He had picked up a rabid Orlt paper in his frantic endeavor
to got seine matter and for once in Its
life the Cucumber Courier was a rank
Liberal papor.
"Don't g've out one of thoso papers
until I get buck to my school," said
Annable and left the office.
The holiday for tho pupils of the
Citron Junction school wns shorter
than they expected.
That is why Mr. Amiable Is afraid
of a newspaper office.

Waterland vs. Greenwood Case is Still
Being Heard.
The case of Waterland vs. Greenwood in which the plaintiff is suing
the town of (ireenwood for 85,000
damages which he alleges was done to
his property by the overflowing of the
creek which runs through (Ireenwood,
was continued at the morning and afternoon sessions of the Supreme Court
at the court house today. The evidence for tlie plaintiff is all in, and
there are now six witnesses to give
evidence for the defence. The case
could not be completed today but it
is thought that it will go to the jury
about Monday evening. Only two
witnesses were examined during the
morning session. Tlie first was Robert Marken, of Greenwood, a building
contractor. He stated that he had examined the damaged buildings, aDd
thought that the damage done to them
would amount to; about $2,000. Robert Wood, ex-mayor of Greenwood,
and owner of the town site, was the
next to give evidence. The groater
portion of his time was consumed iu
telling of the location of the site of
the buildings in their relation to the
position of the creek. He said that
the original course of the creek,which
now passes through the townsite,
had been changed.
Judging from the time it is taking
to dispose of tlie various cases the
present session of the fall assizes will
bo the longest on record in the history
of Nelson.
