A. Galllher has been   handed  to  The
Miner:
Editor Miner:
Sir,���I notice in your issue of. yesterday that your Ymir correspondent
states I made a bid for the Labor
vote at my meeting at that place recently and in doing so made "valid"
(I presume he means "veiled") threat
that in ciibc the Liberals were returned to power and I was defeated
through the Labor party having a
candidate in the field, that the patronage which would come through
me would be cut off from the Labor
party and I would mete out some
measure of reprisal. That statement
is entirely and absolutely and in every
sense of the word a "campaign lie."
The man who wrote it knows ho lied
when he did so and if he has the courage to come out over his own signa-
tuie I will piovc what I say. This explanation is hardly necessary to those
who know me but there arc others
who road your paper and Iwish to set
invself right with them.
\V. A. UALLIHER.
Nelson, B. C, Oct. 33.
This Is how Mr. Deane Is gathering
information for the Chinese commission. It Is from The Mail of Revel-
bloke :
F. J, Deane, of Kamloops, came up
from the south Saturday evening and
reports Mr. Oalllher as making great
progress in the election campaign
throughout the southern country
which will give him a large vote.
The Spokane Spokesman-Review, in
an article on the Canadian elections,
has the following in regard to British
Columbia:
The people of Spokane will take a
special interest in the result of the
polling in British Columbia. That
Province only returns six members to
the Dominion  House,   two  ol whom
includes the City of Vancouver and
extends as far north as Atlin; one
for New Westminster and the rich
farming district of the Eraser river
valley: and the other ono for the rest
of the Province, which embraces East
and West Kootenay, Yale and Cariboo, in fact the chief mining districts
of the Province. There are three
candidates for the one scat in Koote-
nay-Yale-Cariboo. Two of them are
lawyers and one is a labor man, who
recently worked in the 400-foot level
of the Center Star mine at Rossland.
The Liberal candidate is W. A. Oalllher, who enjoys the distinction in
Nelson of being "one of the boys,"
as well as a leading lawyer. The
Conservative candidate is A. II. Mac-
Neil, of Rossland, who has a big law
practice in the mining capital of the
Kootenay. The Labor candidate is
Chris Foley and bis friends claim
that no more unique nomination than
his was ever made. He did not seek
the oflice, the oflice sought him and
found hi in Underground in the Center
Star mine.
It looks as though the labor versus
capital cry will be much beard in
British Columbia dining this election
contest. In all the consistencies
labor men have been nominated. In
New Westminster Aulay Morrison,
the sitting member, a Liberal barrister, will be opposed by C. MacLaiu,
who dm ing the fishermen's strike on
the Eraser River the past summer
achieved notoriety. He is a socialist.
As far icmoved from MacLaiu's stylo
as it is possible to be is Mr. Morrison's other opponent, Edgar Uewd-
ney, one of the gentlemen of the old
school. Some years since Mr. Dewd-
ney was Lieut.-Governor of British
Columbia,and before that lie was Minister of the Interior in the cabinet of
the late Sir John Maedonald. Of late
years he has given his attention to
mining in the SimilUamecn.
In Burrard Inlet district Mayor
Garden, of Vancouver, will try conclusions with tleorge R. Maxwell,
who four years ago resigned the pulpit for politics anil was elected to the
Federal Parliament as a Liberal.
There was a split in tho Conservative
party of Vancouver at the time and
tlOO Conservatives voted for Maxwell
and secured his return. This time the
Vancouver Conservatives will vote
straight for Mayor Harden, they
having got over the soreness engendered by the squabbles of 1800. Mr.
Maxwell, however, has the support of
the Labor party, while Mayor Garden
stands for "West End" Ideas. Tbe
clerical politician is likely to beat the
labor drum for all it is worth.
In what is known as the Vancouver
constituency, which really embraces
the central and northern sections of
Vancouver Island, Ralph Smith, the
president of the Trades and Labor
Congress of Canada, will stand for
Liberalism against W. Sloan, who
made a fortune in thu Klondike. The
only thing in which Mr. Smith fails
to agree with the Liberal party is on
tho Chinese question. The labor men
do not think the Government has
tackled this Chinese matter with courage. It did nothing to chock the evil
of Oriental competition with white
labor till a few weeks ago, and then
it raised the poll tax from 850 to 8100
instead of ��r>00, as the laboring men
had asked. Since then a commission |
has been appointed to Inquire into
the whole question.
The City of Victoria, which has
been Conservative ever Bince it was
created a constituency, will probably
return to parliament the two present
members,Colonel Prior and Mr. Earlo.
The Liberals havo nominated R. L.
Drury, a man of labor ideas, to contest the seat,but they are hardly likely to wrest it from the present members.
Yesterday afternoon', the citizens of
Victoria, in a peculiarly pleasing and
fitting manner, bade farewell to
Rear-Admiral Beaumont, who is leaving to assume the position of commander-in-chief of the Australian
squadron, and Mrs. Beaumont. The
ceremony took place in the assembly
room of tbe Parliament buildings and
was witnessed and participated in by
a large number of the leading citizens, attended by their wives and
daughters, together with nearly all of
those holding official positions in the
community. Admiral Beaumont was
presented with an engrossed address
by Mayor Hayward, on behalf of the
citizens of Victoria, and made an impressive response, calculated to endear
himself and Mrs. Beaumont more than
ever to the people from whom thoy
are taking leave. Afterwards the commander-in-chief and Mrs. Beaumont
were presented with boqucts of choice
cut flowers and later Sir Henri Joli,
on behalf of the citizens of Victoria,
handed the Admiral a massive nugget.
Canadian Colonel Makes Himself Decidedly  Unpopular.
Toronto, Oct. 23.���Letters received
here yesterday from officers of the
First Canadian Contingent go to show
that the departure of the regiment
from South Africa was preceded by a
regrettable misunderstanding, owing
to Colonel Otter assuming the responsibility of intimating to Lord Roberts that the whole force was willing
to remain till the end of the war
without consulting the regiment,
which was at that timo broken up in
small detachments and stationed at
various points When the men learned of Otter's action in pledging them
to remain without their knowledge
they were angry and stated that they
would have willingly consented to remain had they been asked, but object
cd to Colonel (.liter giving the promise
off hand. So strong was the feeling
that eventually all the men who had
volunteered were ordered home. The
remainder, consisting of the permanent corps, were grouped together and
now form A. and B. companies, which
remain under Colonel Otter.
Rrantford, Ont., Oct. 23.���Edwin
Fair,a well known fanner living near
Onondaga, died yesterday of injuries
by being thrown out of bis democrat
in a runaway last Wednesday.
SMALLPOX ON BOARD.
Steamer City of  Seattle Goes to Quarantine Station.
(S____V_, BO THE MINEn.)
Victoria, B. C, Oct. 22.���News has
just reached this eity that the steamer
City of Seattle, on her way from
Vancouver to Willianishead quarantine
Btation, crowded with passengers,
among whom are many Victorians
from Seattle, arrived at Vancouver this morning from Skagway and
upon undergoing medical inspection,
a mild case of smallpox was discovered among the passengers. The doctor
at once ordered her to the quarantine
station.
Mr. F J. Deane, of Kamloops secretary of the commission which is to enquire into the Chinese question, is in
the city, having come down fiom Nanaimo yesterday. He is now gathering
data to present to the commission,
which will commence sitting shortly.
As Ralph Smith has announced himself as a candidate for the Dominion
House, it is likely that he will resign
from the commission.
A telegram received by Col. Benson,
D. O. C, for this district, makes it
appear that the protest of Victorians
against tho removal of a company of
R. C. 11. from Victoria, is not to be
heeded. The telegram contains a request to ascertain how many of the
men would prefer free discharge here
to removal to Halifax. Most of the
men it is understood would prefer to
remain with the company.
St. Thomas, Out., Oct. 23.���A writ
has been issued on behalf of Gunner
tleo. A. Barrolt who has just returned
from South Africa, againt Rev. Dr.
Phillip, pastor of tho First Methodist
church, for alleged slander in a Sermon Sunday evening, when the reverend gentleman said he was sorry to
see in eonneetion with the return of
the bravo boy a carnival of drink and
dissipation which he hoped would not
be repealed.

Vancouver, B.C., Oct. 2.-A special from Agassiz, B. C, says that 800
Indians arc starving at Pemberton

ambault Lane, in the east end of the

Vancouver, II. 0��� Oct. 23.���Two
murder mysteries have been cleared up
by the confession of Yip Luck, the
Chinaman, who has been sentenced to
be hanged on November 10 for Ihe
murder of Chief of Police Main, of
Steves ton, He has confessed to one of
his keepers that ho killed an Indian
at Chilliwaek some years ago.
Another victim was a colored man
who was found dead about live miles
from Yale some 10 years ago. He had
been ont shooting when he met the
Chinese. Thoy had some words. The
negro, though armed with a gun. was
killed by the Celestial, who wielded
an ax.
London,   Oct.   23.���The Times publishes the   following   from   its   eorre
spondent  in St. Petersburg:   "It is
safe to sny that the visit of the Chinese Minister to Livadia, where the
Russian court and the principal ministers are now staying, and whence
the Russian (lovernment is directed
with more secrecy than would be possible here, is connected with an endeavor to make a separate arrangement concerning Manchuria.
"The Russians will continue to exterminate the Chinese in the most
ruthless manner in order to protect
the future of the railway. A critical study of the official reports show
that Chinese resistance has been" a
mere farce. The Russians have liecn
only too glad of opportunity to kill
every Chinese soldier and to destroy
every vestige of ChineMi authority in
Manchuria, and they have taken advantage of this farcial resistance with
a vengeance."

I UK PEEMIEE AT TORONTO.
of the world, whereas it is ns free to
study its own interest ns the Russian
Empire or the Republic of the United
States. There is no country on earth
could have the least reasonable cause
of complaint if the Hritish family
should set their house in order in any
manner that pleases them. That is
what all other countries do, and it
would be Btrange indeed if the British Empire is tu be made an exception.
Here are some sensible remarks
from The Fort Steele Prospector:
"The lead industry of Hritish Columbia is in a condition that demands
protection; the Liberal Government
has declined to take action, though
asked to assist in placing this important industry among the largest revenue producing Industries in the Dominion. It is the policy to protect
home Industries, and a practical demonstration of this policy for e ghteen
years, was the direct cause of the
prosperous condition of the Dominion
(luring the past four years, which is
claimed by tlie Liberal party."
In his Toronto speech, intended for
the English speaking citizens of the
Dominion, the Premier said that the
preference was given "out of gratitude to Great Britain," because of
valuable services during the past sixty
years. Speaking roundly, sixty years
cover tlie period that has elapsed
Since the abrogation of the Corn Laws
and the adoption of the policy of free
trade. What he desired to convey to
the minds of his hearers was. therefore, that in return for the boon of
free entry into the Hritish market the
least we could do was to make a
heavy cut in our tariff in favor of the
Mother Country. We are the more
assured that this was his meaning
from the fact that he and other Ministers at other times so declared without a trace of obscurity. (Ireat Britain hail been taking our products free
of duty, therefore we should discriminate in her favor.
Whatever she takes free from us she
takes free also from the L'nited States,
from France, from Germany. Have
these countries no gratitude.that they
fail to extend some favor in return'.'
It will be said that the relations are
different, that no tie of kindred exists
between them and Great llritain
Which is quite true but not to the
point, for the reason that sentiment is
not permitted to govern in matters of
this kind. If it were. Great Britain
has been singularly unfeeling these
many years in not showing some special favor to her own people in her
own Colonies. It could not be sentiment in our case for another, reason,
anil a very good one���there was nothing to lie grateful for. Great Britain
adopted free trade for her own benefit, not ours, and it applies to all other countries as much as to us. The
Premier must have been wrong,there-
tore, in saying that our preference
was given out of gratitude, lle would
have been more correct in putting it
down to vanity, lie was about to
take part in the Jubilee, in which he
expected to cut a great figure. If he
went over with this gift of a preference the trading instinct of the lirit-
i ih would hail him as a demigod, and
to be considered a demigod is the consuming desire of his heart.
In the same pcech the Premier
made a long and somewhat rambling
explanation of his course in counec-
ti'ii witli tbe contingent. "I was not
over hasty in sending it,'1 he said.
That is true. As Sii llibbert Tupper
put it at Calgary, he was first ill the
Jubilee but last in responding to the
��� all for help. There was no Parliamentary authority, he pleads. That
is a weak excuse. There was the same
authority when he began bis hesitation as there was when it came to a
sudden termination because of the indignant remonstrance of the Canadian
people. What be did in the end without Parliamentary authority he could
Just as well nave done at the beginning, if his heart had been in the
right place. He hesitated, not for
lack of authority, but because he was
persuaded by Mr. Tarte that their
Compatriots of Quebec were not in
sympathy with the step and   might re
sent it.
During the four years of the I.aur
ier Oovernment Canadian exports to
Great Britain increased in value 81'J,-
880,720, while the increase of United
States exports during tlie same period
was (135,370,004. Great llritain is not
displaying as much "gratitude" for
our preference as wc did in giving it.
We are afraid Sir Wilfrid Launer's
explanations do not exactly bit it off
with tbe figures.

Universally against other nations can

WEBSTER WOULDN'T SPEAK.
Daniel Webster, the famous America,, political orator of a former generation, when at bis home at Mor.h-
Belil, would never speak on polities,
but he would talk to the assembled
neighbors and guests on matters pertaining to farming. On one occasion
s0,���e Boston friends presented bim
with an enormous plough to use on
his farm. Webster gave ont word that
on a certain day it would be christened. The day arrived,and the surrounding farmers for miles came to witness
the event. A dozen teams with aristocratic occupants came down from Boston. It was expected by every ono
that Webster would make a great
speech on the occasion, reviewing the
history of farming back to the time
when Clnclnnatua abdicated tbe most
���nighty throne In the world to cultivate cabbagcB in bis Roman garden.
The plough was brought out, and
ten yoke of splendid oxen were hitched In front. More than two hundred
people stood around on the tiptoe of
expectation. Webster soon made his
appearance. He had been calling
spirits from the vasty deep, and hiB
gait was somewhat uncertain. Seizing the plough handles and spreading
his feet, he yelled in bis deep bass
voice:
"Are you ready, Wright?"
"All leady, Mr. Webster," was the
reply, meaning, of course, for the
speech.
Webster straightened himself up by
a mighty effort and shouted:
"Then let her rip!"
The whole crowd dropped to the
ground and roared with laughter,
while Webster with his plough, proceeded to rip up the soil. Tlie same
plough can now be seen on top of the
Faneuil Hall market in Boston anil is
a conspicuous object for miles around.
WINTER JACKETS.
While long coats aud three-quarter
coats are the smartest for the new
winter gowns, there are any number
of short jackets that are exceedingly
attractive, They are made in both
Eton and bolero Btyle, but the fronts
have little or nothing to do with the
original design of such coats. All
the fronts^ are. long enough to come
below the waist line; some are made
double breasted aud perfectly Hat in
effect whilc.others have pointed revere
that are opened to show an insido
waistcoat of some different material,
a laee yoke and a large lace bow.
Then there is a severe little jacket
that is fnstenod at the throat and has
long points that hang down over the
skirt, and that is trimmed all round
with a narrow ball fringe of gold or
silvor. Another jacket on the same
lines is trimmed with narrow lines of
velvet and rows of tiny flat buttons in
gold or silver. These jackets will
look too cold when really cold weather
Bets in, but will make the costumes
intended for early autumn exceedingly gay and effectivo in appearance.���

A FALL WEDDING,
Io decorating a house for a wedding, making a lavish uso of greenery, the delicate smilax and asparagus vine, the splendid foliage of tall
palms and the graceful droop of ferns.
Iu the room where the wedding cere
mony takes place use only white and
green. In October one can find outside hothouse bloom plenty of garden
flower., which will make beautiful
musses of snowy blossom amid the
green. .WallB, draperies, mantels,
Blair railings and chandeliers may be
exquisitely draped with the lovely
clematis, ^then for more massive
blooms thero are the spicy white
stocks, the heavy hended hydrangea,
spirea, asters, balsam, dahlias, pe

candy-tuft and sweet alyssuni. Koop
the scheme of white and green also

table is made the most attractive
spot. For its decoration use flowers,
which are fragrant and delicate. Do
not load it with glusB and silver, ns

be beautiful.���tlood Housekeeping for

Tlie Colonial Ooldfields Gazette ot
recent date prints a half-tone cut of
Nelson,taken from a point back of the
smelter. It is slightly blurred in the
taking or making, but otherwise the
city presents an appearance of very
ei mBiderable importance.
The city hospital is again crowded,

' I had occasion to catch the II :4u

says, "and in reaching the depot had
no less than two falls, one from a
walk which ended most abruptly and
the second time down an embankment. It was as dark as it could well
lu- ami when 1 arrived at the depot I
was covered with mud. Either the
city or the C. P. R. should sec that
lights are placed in that vicinity."

The residence of Mr. .1. It. A. How
lcy.siluuled at the corner of Josephine
uml Observatory streets, narrowly escaped complete destruction by lire
about 1 ::il) this morning. The blaze is
believed to have originated in u defec
tive Hue.   When first discovered It had
gained much  headway and   the oocu-
pants "f Ihe house had to leave iu a
hurry. There is a hose reel at the
rear of Mr. Rowley's house but as
there was only one man in charge of
it,  it    WOfl   of   little   urfe  until   other
members of the department put in an
appearance. Then the water was
hurriedly turned on and the fire soon
under control. An addition to the
south side  of  the  house wus  almost
completely destroyed and some damage done to the remainder of the
building. Tbe loss will be but a
few   hundred dollars.
Mr. Ernest Mansfield did not regain

Mr. Charles T. Wilson, of Kirkp.it-
rick and Wilson, returned from the

wife und son. They enjoyed their trip
exceedingly well. In speaking of
trade in tlie east Mr. Wilson said:
''The people Of the east are enjoying
good times al present. The wholesale
dealers are placing large orders for
the west and there is a feeling there
that times here are mueb better than
they have been for some time." In
speaking of the political situation in
the east Mr. Wilson said that affairs
were becoming rather warm just now
To light the city by many addition
al are lumps, was the main point of
discussion at the city council last
evening. To do this considerable ex
pense will be incurred but the light
ing service will be much better than
it is at present. To light the city
properly it will require lifty 3,000 c.p.
lamps and a 50-light arc dynamo to
give a sufficient current. It is intended to run the dynamo by steam. The
mutter was referred to the board of
public works. It was decided to
plnce a sidewalk on the north side of
Haker street, between Stanley and
Kootenay streets. Charles E. Ileasley
was appointed poll tax collector.
Mr. W. A. Fraser, the well known
Canadian author and literary man,
with Mrs. Fraser, is at the Hotel
Phair. Mr. Fraser is making a tour
through the mountains looking for
"material." His "Mooswa of the
Boundaries,*1 his latest book, is about
ready for the reading public, being
issued by a New York publishing
house. This evening Mr. and Mrs.
Fraser will leave for Rossland to continue their trip. This afternoon Mr.
Fraser visited the smelter. Among
newspapermen in the. Eastern states
and in eastern Canada Mr. Fraser is
well and intimately known and is always a welcome visitor to all "local"
rooms.
Tbe case of the Merchants' Hank of
Halifax vs. Houston und Ward, which
wan to have been heaid before tho
Supreme Court of Canada at Ottawa
during this month, has been postponed until the spring session. The postponement is due to the continued ill-
ncsB of Chief Justice Strong, and Justice Sedgewick, being u shareholder
in the hank, is therefore unwilling to
occupy the Bench ou the appeal. Mr.
ilannington received word from Ottawa to this effect yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Taylor, Q. C., who went to Ottawa in connection with the trial, has
left for the west and it is expected
that be will arrive in Nelson next
Sunday.
Drygoods and clothing merchants
havo no complaint to make in regard
to the very disagreeable weather Nelson citizens are enduring at the present time. It is "seasonable" and that
is what the drygoods and clothing
man wants. Hut James Welsh, the
railroad contractor, doesn't look at it
in the same light. He lias 100 men
employed in the railroad between
Nelson and Five Mile Point and he
wants to get through with them. "If
the weather hud continued good,"
said Mr. Welsh this morning, "I
would have been through with my
work in fifteen days, but from the
outlook at present it will probably
take me all next month to finish up."
THE UNLUCKY YEAR.
Italian   Superstitions   About   the Calamities of Nineteen Hundred.
The crimes, disaster and wars which
have affected the world, not excluding Italy, during tbe present year
have drawn attention (says a Rome
correspondent) to the curious coincidences between the two jubilees of the
Holy year���1825 and 11)00. In 18:.��j bubonic plague made fearful ravages in
many countries calamities happened
far and wide, the crops in Italy failed
almost completely, and a terrible famine followed. Superstitious people
attributed all these dismal events to
the jubilee, and the same belief is
widely held in Italy with regard to
the calainites of the present year. In
the southern provinces particularly,
and also in Rome, they arc set down
to the "jettatura." or evil eye of the
Pope, which is held responsible for
the murder of King Humbert, the bad
crops, the epidemics of sU-kncss and
the war in China.
Chance seems to favor the superstition. The recent railway accident,
iu which seventeen persons were killed and one hundred injured, occurred
at Castel (luihileo.in the Roman Gam-
pagna, Qullbileo, signifies jubilee,
anil the name was given to the place
in 1825 because the pilgrims assembled there to journey to Rome. Out
of every 100 Italians at least OS believe
in the "jettatura." This superstition
has many times given rise to rebel
lion attended with great bloodshed
and no surprise need be felt if a fresh
national calamity precipitates an
alarming outbreak in Italy. It is singular that even the clericals, including the mass of ecclesiastics, believe
in the Pope's "jettatura." Pius IX
gained a sinister reputation in this
respect, and the same belief attaches
but in much greater measure, to Leo
XIII.
The "jettatura" in Italy is guarded
against by the wearing of amulets,
usually of silver, in the form of an
antelope horn, a hand with two Angers doubled down, a key with a
heart in its handle a crescent moon
with a face in it or a sprig of rue.
HEY WOOD TONIGHT.
Will Appear For tne Second Time in
Nelson.
Alba lleywood aud his very excellent company will fill a return engagement in the Nelson Opera House
this evening. That they will he
greeted with a large house,goes without saying for the programme given is
a splendid one.
During Mr. lleywood _ tour of the
Boundary Country he appeared at
Phoenix, a mining town three quarters of a mile higher than Oreenwood,
reached only by stage, and as lie ascended, the following   lines suggested
themselves and  made a decided bit
with his audience that night:
MY   LAST   DATE.

I've traveled west and east,
I've traveled on tho stage, I mean

I've traveled in a Pullman ear
And on a mixed freight* train.
I've traveled over northern snows
Behind a Klondyke Pup
Tu Phoenix is the lirst time
That I've I raveled right straight up.
There's only one way left for me
To travel now "By Joe"
For as I'm an actor man
Ami travel with a "SHOW"
I   'spoge I'll lind when I arrive

That I have been a traveling
Not up- hut rlghl straight down,

And "There'll be a hot time
In Die old Town  that night."

SWAGGER ENOUGH.
A well known Scottish laird, who
is pompous in manner and never for
gets that he is a laird, was the other
day walking up and down the Dundee
platform of the Perth general station
just before taking his seat in the
train.
At that moment  a hot   and perspir
ing countryman rushed onto the plat
form   and said to the laird:
"Is this the Dundee train',"'
The laird coldly   remarked:    "lam
not the station master."
The other man at once retorted :
'Then, confound   ye, sir,   what for
due ye swagger   about there as   if  ye
were?"���London Spare Moments.
PAINFUL REACTION.
"I dislike to say anything that may
seem unkind or uncivil, Mr. Dick-
over," the young woman said, "but
I think it would be best for you not
to call here any more, for the reason
that "
"You needn't explain," he broke
in, desperately. "I know what the
reason is. I was good enough for
you until Mr. de Sweet began coming
here. I can't compete with the
owner of a candy factory ! Hut look
here, Alvira McGinnis, do you know
what 1 am going to do?"
"I do not."
"I am going." be said, with a
frightful grimace, "to" vote for Wil
Ham Jennings Bryan!"
HIS FIRST EFFORT.
The studious young Japanese had
acquired bis knowledge of the English
language chiefly from hooks. His first
attempt at writing a poem in Englisl
took this shape:
A Hoard of Trade plunger
Who suffered some hunger
Hought a cake made of ginger
And a moment did linger.
Then he said,
As he paid:
"Here's your fees,   cheesemonger.
Thou see I'm no sponger.
What a dairy lunch lounger
I'd be was I younger!"
AS THE DAY WOKE ON.
"What Hag," asked the   near-sighted man,    "are   those plug  hutted fel
lows in tho next disivion   of   the   parade marching under?"
"Old Glory, of course," replied   the
man standing next to him.
"().   G.!    1   ought   to   have  known
that!"
