Eleventh Year
Enthusiastic Meeting of the
Conservatives of Nelson District.
John Houston Pledges Sup-
to Conservative
Last Bight's meeting of the Liberal-
Conservative Association of Nelson augurs well for the success of that party
in this portion of the Yale-Cariboo
district, li was a meeting whereat
all nf the factions of the party were
united, and nun who have not for
some time affiliated with the Conservatives cheered with those who have
never strayed away tlie names of Sir
Charles Tupper and Hugh Johu Maodonald. Mayor John Houston was
iilicof tlicse..'ind lie with Others signed
his niUUC to the articles of the Liberal
Conservative Association and pledged
his support to the nominee of the
Conservative convention in Kevcl-
stoke tomorrow, no matter who that
nominee may be.
The meeting was culled for the purpose of selecting delegates to the convention and was largely attended.
John Toye and Fred .1. Slnrkey were
chosen respectively chairman and see-
relary ami all who were present and
lint members of the association signed
their names to the articles ami became
active members and actlvo Conservatives. The nominations for delegates
placed before tbe meeting the following gentleman:
J. B. Animhle, 9. 3. Bradley, Jacob
Hover, .1. A. Klrkpatrlok,   Peter  La-
i it, W.   I'I.    Mcl'andlish.   C.    Morri

consented to attend the convention
and were ohosen unanimously i Chris
Morrison, Fred Markov. .1. E, Annable, Jacob Dover, VV. 0. McCanillisli,
���'ind John Houston. M. P.  P.
After the selection of delegates, Mr.
VY. A. Macdonald moved, and (I. L.
Lennox seconded the adoption of the
following resolution:
"Resolved that this meeting of Liberal-Conservatives of the Dlstirot of
Nclsnn expresses its confidence in Sir
Charles Tupper as tlieir leader and
hails with satisfaction the return of
Hugh John   Maodonald   to   Dominion
politics, This meeting pledges itself to
use all   legitimate   means toward   tlle
election of the nominee ofthe Liberal-
Conservative Party for  Yale-Cariboo,
thus assisting In  the downfall of the
Lanricr-Tartc adminislration."
Tlic resolution w'lH unanimously
adopted by n Standing vote and three
hearty    cheers    were   given   for   Sir
1 harles Tupper and   Hugh John Maodonald,
bune has h.d something pleasant lo
say of the Liberal nominee. A wondrous change has been wrought, however, Last night Mr, Houston joined
the Liberal-Conservative Association,
pledged himself to support Mr, Galli-
her's opponent and cheered with others for Sir Charles Tupper and Hugh
John Macdonald. He did it all, ton.
of his own free will. No combination
of circumstances forced him to aet as
lie did. He has broken away from
the Liberals and burned liis bridges
behind him, lie has taken with him.
too, a portion of his personal following, a following whieh would otherwise have probably supported Mr.Gal-
lilicr. Mr, (lalliber has certainly been
thrown down.
A Montreal correspondent says: Regarding the entrance of Hon. Hugh
John Macdonald into the Dominion
campaign. Sir Charles 'Tupper snid:
"I knew what I was about when 1
played the card that has caused so
much satisfaction amongst tlic rank
und file of the Liberal-Conservative
party of Canada. 1 knew what wns iu
tlie man, and I assure you, he will
bring us a solid phalanx of Conservative members from Lake Superior to
the I'aeilic ocean. The defeat of Mr.
sifton iu Brandon by Mr. Macdonald
is absolutely certain. "
Sir Charles spoke most enthusiastically of his recent tour, which he declared had been a splendid success.
"It would be impossible." Sir Charles
Tupper said, "to exaggerate the enthusiasm und Importance of the meetings we addressed in Nova Scotia.New
Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
I have never in my life seen anything
like the attendance, as well us the
intense feeling thnt bus arisen in
those three Provinces against the
Laurier Qovernment." Speaking of
Conservative prospects in Nova Scotia,
Sir Charles said that the Conservatives
will carry without doubt, thirteen out
of the twenty seats, und without losing; u constituency will capture live
seats now held hy the Liberals. The
prospects In New Brunswick and
Prince Edward Island are also splendid. Sir Louis Davies is lighting for
bis politicnl life, and if be is not defeated he will not hnve n single follower from his own Province. It was
nlso admitted thai Mr. Costigan's
political days in the County of Victoria are numbered.

John Houston's action in pledging
himself to the support of the Liberal-

Cariboo diatlrot in the ensuing genernl elections came like B thunderbolt
from n clear sky into the Liberal
camp of the Nelson district. During

Mitchell and Secretary  Wilson of the
Union Mine Workers affixed their signatures to the   document   which    will
call 143,000 minora of the Pennsylvania authraetie region from their
work Monday morning ami precipitate
une of the most gigantic strikes In
the history Of the labor world. The
document was the ollicial endorsement of the request of tho anthracite
miners to strike.    It   was considered
by Ihe untioiial executive board of the
United Mine Workers last week, and
when the board adjourned to indorse
tlie strike all power was left in the
hands of the president and secretary.
The ollicial   order   to strike    was .scut
to the three   Pennsylvania districts.

The Miner has taken occasion to secure the views of a number of leading
citizens upon the matter of the present electric light muddle. It has
been done not witli tin intention to
criticise the Mayor or Council but
rather as au aid to them in their consideration of a question which has
worried them for some weeks past.
Interviews witli some citizens ure
published today. Others have lieen
or will be secured and will appear in
tomorrow's Miner. Everyone interviewed believes in Immediate action,
nnd the majority are of the opinion
tbat further tinkering with the present plant is a useless expenditure of
money.     Here are sonic ideas:
,1. II, Wallace, of Wallace and Miller: "I am surprised that some action
has not been taken before this. Immediate steps should be taken to obtain ll proper lighting system, It is
plain that Ihe city ban already wasted
a large sum of money on the present
plant. Although thousands of dollar"
might be spent to belter this plant, it
is my opinion lhat it will never prove
satisfactory, and thnt was my idea
when the plant wns lirst installed, ll
appeals that satisfactory results could
be obtained,if the plant was moved lo
the rapids at Kootenay bridge where
good water power could always be
had. At the present time, owing to
the fact tbat large sums have already
been spent, if satisfactory arrangements could be made witb the Bonnlngton Kails people, it would be thc
wisest step that could be taken. Wc
hnve never had good street lights,
and with the present plant it will be
impossible to obtain tbem. It is tie
Intention of our company to place gas
iu our store, as we hnve not. satisfactory electric light service."
James A. (iilker: "I would say
that immediate steps should be taken
to obtain   a proper   lighting   system.
The city by nil  moans should control
and derive'revenue from the lighting
nf the city. Something should he
done without further delay to  repair
the old dam or lmild a new one."
Mnrtin   O'Relllyi    "'toe   lighting
service tit my store is far from being
satisfactory, end if I am not given u
belter service shortly, will purchase
my lighting material from tlie (las
Company. 1 am greatly in favor of
tbe citv' controlling the system, but
w,mid like to see   it    made   a   salifae-
tory one.   It Is quite disappointing to
have in one's store a lighting service
which is of no use. The City Council
should make a move to do something
at once."
Horace Hume:    "You  eanm    call
it  a lighting service.    A CO!  lamp
would   give   a   milch    better    service
Homo Steps Should bo   taken    i ledl-
ately. No, I am not in favor of getting power from Hie lloiinington Kails
v ipany.   The lighting service should
be controlled by the cily. "
James A. McDonald of McArthur A
C, ; I am nol in favor of the pros
ent System in the least and am sure
that'll satislateory plant could be installed at Kootenay bridge at tllc rap
ids. This would .give the city an unlimited power and could nol only furnish the number of lights, but would
furnish power for u ufacturing purposes, which would add greatly to
the building up of the town."
���lobn    Kirkpatrick:    "It      Is     well
known that the present plant is perfectly unsatisfactory. Bomotblng
must' be done soon,  and   why    not    do
ii now instead of waiting two or three
nu,nibs.   Several propositions are 	
fore the council and why do they not
e-ivc them their immediate and careful
consideration? 'the city should eon

.Tuilgc Forin renewed nn old acquaintance Wednesday when he shook
bauds with Lord Minto shortly after
His Kxelleneies arrival in tlie city.
During the rebellion in the Northwest
in 1885 tlie judge saw much of Lord
Minto and evidently learned to admire
him very much.
"It is over 15 years since I met
him," said the Judge to a Miner man
this morning. "He was then chief of
Btaff to (leneral Middletou in tlie
Northwest Rebellion of 1SS5. I was
with Colonel (liter in the Queen's
Own. a regiment that has lately had
the distinction of Lord Roberts accepting the position of honorary colonel. Lord Mclgiind. as Lord Minto
wus then known.was considered a rattling good .soldier. His faiuiliaritv
with the men of the west, the cow-
puncher and Mounted Police qualified
him to. judge of tlieir ellieieney for
service in South Africa, lie is an ardent admirer of tlie Canadian troops.
As a soldier of wide experience he
also sees sonic faults, but is ever kind
to them. He it was who interested
himself in getting Charlie itoss. tlic
celebrated scout into service in South
Africa. Itoss was chief scout for Colonel Otter in 1885. Lord Minto is familiar with this type of western men
and if his advice had been followed I
have no doubt we would have had
thousands of these line plainsmen and
rough riders iu South Africa. As Sir
Charles Dilke said : Send out 10,000
rough riders, cow punchers ami colonials.' I am quite sure Lord Minto has
the same view. Thc War Offloe
should i suit, such men as Lord Minto, he is practical and bus bad wide
colonial experience, Canada to him
is no vast unpopulated frozen north,
but a country of boundless possibilities. Another matter which 1 had
the opportunity of speaking about was
the record of our Canadian soldiers iu
South Africa. Lord Minto takes a
personal pride in their work, lie
knew they could do tbe work und of
one thing I am positive, that is, that
the report Lord Minto wished to
break onr regiment up into units is
false. He was a strong advocate of
keeping them together, he   knew tbey
could do Canada credit and predicted
it. liis prediction!are more than fulfilled, As be says. 'When you sec Ihe
Canadian regi lit continuously associated with such eruek regiments as
the Gordons and Seaforths you may
depend  they  are doing  line  work.'
Vcs. His Exoellenoy lias great faith in
Canada and its people. "
.Tames Steers.of Ihe tug Procter.narrowly escaped drowning in Kootenay
Lake below Pilot Hay yesterday afternoon. Only for the heroic aetiou of
Captain I). (Ieorge Kurtz he would
have lost his life. The tug was taking
a barge of fifteen ears to Kootenay
Landing and us it nearcd Rhinoceros
Point the barge was struck by a heavy
sea and management became exceedingly dillieult. The crew was forced
to draw the barge by a tow line, aud
while getting the tug into position
Steers was caught by the cable anil
thrown into the water. In a desperate struggle, and although Incapable
Of swimming, lie caught the tow line
which kept bis head above water
Captain Kurtz plunged to bis rescue.
There was only one man left on the
tug, and at the cries for help from the
men in the water, he lowered the life
boat but In the heavy waves it was
washed away and lost, lie could do
nothing to help as be had to steer the
tug and keep il running full ahead to
keep thc cable light and the men out
of the water. Captain Kurtz lushed
Mr. Steers to the cable and pushed
him along it until the barge was
reached. Several times during their
stay in the water of over an hour,
Steers ericd to the captain to let him
die. After the men were freed from
their perilous position there was only
one man on the tug to run and steer
It, Other serious accidents might
have happened had not the Moyie
wbieb was passing al the time gone to
their rescue. Those who saw tbo
affair say that Captain Kurtz did an
heroic dood and should be presented
witb a humane medal.

Hr. Russell, one of the members for
Halifax in the Dominion House, eon-
tributes a four-column paper to The
Toronto Globe on what he is pleased
lo call "Tbe Imperialism of sir
Charles Tupper." The comment that
lirst suggests itself on wading through
it is that thc Doctor is either not as
honest as be might be in dealing with
public men with whom he does not
agree, or he is singularly dull of comprehension. The purpose of tlle article is to show, lirst. that Sir Charles
Tupper is inconsistent in his present
professions of imperialism, and, second, that his    tive in   suggesting a
Canadian contingent for the South
Africa war was to embarrass Sir Wilfrid Laurier. With most readers it
will be Sufficient to dispose of the latter aspersion by simply characterising
it as stuff and nonsense. If the Premier hnd had the wit to accept the suggestion of a contingent as tlie splendid stroke of policy he afterwards conceded it to be, there could have been
no embarrassment either to himself or
to his party. It was because he hesitated, and hemmed und hawed, and
listened to the protestations of tlie rebellious Tarte, that he found himself
in trouble,and unless Sir Charles Tupper is possessed of hypnotic power he
could not have anticipated any of
these surprising manifestations of
spirit. The suggestion of insincerity,
intended to operate as a trick, is an
unworthy one in itself, although possibly quite in keeping with tlic disposition and qualities of the Liberal
member for Halifax.
Tbe other matter is one of an entirely different complexion, and
questions of Imperial connection and
Imperial preferential trade are cer
tain to command a good deal of nttcn
tion in tlic approaching contest it is
as well that there should he a clear
understanding of it. Wc have seen
that the Liberal papers are already
endeavoring to create the Impression
that Sir Charles Tupper is not as loyal
to the cause of Imperialism as lie pn
fesscs to be, and we shall probably
discover before many days that those
same papers arc freely quoting nn old
Bentiment rescued from the dust heap
of forly years ago to prove thai
heart he is au en . my to tlie Imperial
connection ami would prefer to havi
none of it. ilr. Ktissell lias Lighted
on a letter written by Sir Charles,
reply to the late Joseph Howe, when
the quest ion of Confederation was rag
ing in Nova Scotia, in which he took
the ground that neither the money no
the men of Hritish North America
should be spent    in   wars   beyond the
seas.   Here is Inconsistency for you,
thinks Dr.  lfusscll, for this is the man
who   was   in such a   hurry   to n 111-
mi'nil that contingent in the Fall of
last year.    The   Halifax member   docs
not stop to consider that a great many
things may change in forty years.
During that time Canada bus developed from a few struggling, scattered,
disconnected Provinces of three millions of i pie into a united and pros*
porous Dominion of twice the population, During that time the relations
between the Mother Country and the
Colonies have undergone a complete
revolution. What would have been a
hardship and oppression in I hose
struggling Provinces of forty years
ago became an expression of filial
gratitude and affection last year.
I'sc Is made. too. uf si,- Charles
'Cupper's determined opposition lo
the resolution offered   nt a meeting of
the Imperial federation   League some
twelve or fourteen   years   ago, to   the
effect that tin lollies Bhould  be lav
ed for thc defence of the Umpire, an
opposition Hint was largely instrumental iu breaking up the League.
The spirit of this resolution won 1.1 al-,,,
embrace thai Parliamentary union of
the Empire vvhleh the Canadian Premier la undersl I to   favor,    h'or  thai
Opposition  all  Colonists will   forgive
him and   even   applaud   bim.     It was
quite a mistaken view in maintain, as
the   authors   "f   that   resolution   did.
(hut Canada had done nothing for Im
perial defence. The project of a Canadian I'aeilic railway was largely con-
Ived as an Imperial enterprise, and
we hnve spent many millions upon it.
We nre spending millions in the maintenance of u militia force. In other
ways, more or less direct,we are helping the Umpire, Hut thut is not the
real point of the matter. Unless the
present Colonial relations are to be
utterly destroyed, and we are to be
merged into a Parliamentary union,
lireot Imperial taxation is out of tlie
question. Hotter, as at present, to
leave it to our good will, our affection, our loyalty. Referring to the incident of tlie Federation League in a
recent speech. Sir Charles well explained it in the following: "I do
not claim that she has discharged her
whole duty. I said you must leave it
to the free,unfettered judgment of the
Parliament of Canada to deal with
questions of that kind, and that uo
power iu the world outside of her
Parliament should lay an impost on
tlie free people of Canada. Let the
hour come, I also said, when it is
necessary for Canada to stand by the
Mother Country, and she will not look
in vain." That is the only possible
attitude. It will be a bad day for the
present connection and all other connections when one different from this
is taken.

in our morning contemporary of yesterday is too curious to be allowed to
pass without remark. It was said
that thi' minority of the Provincial
electorate "runs the Government,"
and iu proof the figures of twenty
constituencies represented liy (Iovernment supporters were taken, showing
an aggregate of 10,844 votes. Against
these eight others were taken, with
10,075 votes. The oilier ten arc not
accounted for. which is certainly very
singular under the circumstances. Hut
the strangest thing is that two of the
eight, Kevelstoke and Slocan, are represented by members who support the
(Iovernment and consequently help to
"run" it. If thc figures for these are
deducted from the 1 ().(!"'>, and added
to tlie 10,844, our contemporary's position is at once disproved, without reference to the remaining ten, a majority of which is in the (Iovernment
column. The paragraph is altogethe
so singular as to suggest the idea that
Mr. Houston has not yet recovered
from the excitement of bis visit to the
Those who nre so cocksure   that the
I'nited stutes would retaliate against
(Ireat Britain, If she were to give
preferential treatment to the Colonies,
would do well to explain why thnt
country does not retaliate against Canada for onr preferential in favor of
(ireat Britain. Exactly the same provocation would exist in the one ease as
it does in tlie other. The I'nited States
docs not and wonld not retaliate, for
the very good reason that Imperial
trade relations are a domestic affair,
and against which foreign complaint
could not reasonably lie.

Mr. S. II. C. Miner, of (Iranby, and
the head of tlic Miner-Graves Syndicate of mines and smelter, was at the
Windsor Hotel yesterday and left in
the afternoon for bis home, says 'The
Mont.rill Star, of Sept. 8, Mr. Miner
in conversation last evening made the
Important statement that they would
shortly consolidate the Knob Hill.
ol,l Ironsides, and Qrey Eagle i_to
one Immense concern,
This proposition will not come altogether as a surprise, for the reason
that it is Ihe reasonable and logical
outcome of thc whole situation. Mr.
Miner also states that a refinery at
Grand forks is thought of very seriously.
ll is estimated that if a relinery
were established, a saving-of at least
I I-'.' cents per pound eau be made on
the copper. As a matter of fact the
consolidation of these four great properties will necessitate that the Important question of a relinery he taken
Into consideration within the next
eighteen months. It Is estimated that
the construction and equipment ofa
relinery would cost about Sl.nou.oiili]
Mr.Mlner says that all the mine owners in Ihe ltouudary beld Iheir breath
awaiting the starting ofthe (Iranby
smeller, but they are now more than
satisfied. The Company is now connect ing the mines and smelter hy a
private I,'I,'phone wire, and in a comparatively short time the mines in
question will be supplied with all the
operating power they may require
from tlie Qrand Forks electrical
works, and that steam will lie superceded completely. Mr. Miner states
thnl ihe operation has proved a grand
success,nnd that it works as smoothly
as if il had been going on for teii
years He said thut they were not
sorting the ore now being put through,
and that there was a good profit In
every tou   going through the smelter.
Arrangements For Exhibit From ThU
City at the Dig Fair.
The N'elson mineral exhibit at the
Spokane exhibition will undoubtedly
far exceed that of last year. Mr. W.
II. Dowsing, who has been given complete charge of this work, in speaking of the matter this morning   said:
I have up to the present time secured samples of ore from 51) or 80 properties. This number already exceeds
that of last year, hut 1 am anxious
that it shall he increased to lb or
over, I will be leaving for Spokane
''���'"l.v next week, and if there are any
mine owners or prospectors who wish
the properties represented. I would be
pleased if they would bring the samples to T. (1. Procter's otlice, on Haker Street, before next Saturday."
As Mr. Dowsing is well known in
Spokane and one of the pioneers of
that section of the country, he was
given the lirst choice as to the position of the 2s'elson exhibit at the Fair.
The stand, which will be in the
most prominent position of any mineral exhibit, will be elaborately decorated and so constructed that it will
represent a cave, and in thc crevices
mnl nooks will be placed the various
samples of ore. Mr. Dowsing will
not only try to advertise the mines of
thlB district hut will spare no pains
'���> advertising the city itself to the
''est advantage. Photographs of the
'""in buildings, both interior and exterior views, will accompany the min-
���''al exhibit. 'I'be enterprise which is

Says Danger of Republican Success
Lies in Apathy.
Chicago, Sept. 14.���Senator Manna
arrived from New Vork yesterday
and immediately assumed charge at
national committee headquarters, and
admitted the great danger of Republican success was over confidence and
consequently apathy of Republican
"We aro facing thc same conditions
in this campaign as in 1892," said
Ilanna. "There wore nearly BOO.OOO
Republican voters so confident In 1802
that President Harrison would be reelected that they did not take thc
trouble to go to the polls. Thoir negligence, due to over-Confidence, cost
the Republican party tho election.
The Republicans are confident, and
the Democrats arc making a desperate
effort to win. The national committee knows tlie plan of battle of the
Democrats. We know they aro planning to recapture Kentucky. Wost
Virginia, Maryland and Delaware,
carry New York and Indiana and
elect Bryan.
"1 admit that New York is doubtful, in the sense that the Republicans
can not set it down as certain to give
its electoral vote to McKinley. We
must light for New York. The Democrats are going to make a desperate
light to carry thc state. Thoy have
advantages they never before had in a
national campaign. Thoy have Greater New York and Tammany has control of over ��90,000,000 public revenues.

Toronto Telegram: The lacrosse
championhlp of Canada implies tlie
lacrosse championship of the world.
The league which is made np of
Montreal, Ottawa, Cornwall nnd Toronto clubs has clung to the belief
that its members could decide the
championship of the world.
That belief has been mildly disputed
by adherents of the C. L. A., an organization whioh educates players who
can hold thoir own with the best men
in tho Montroal or the   Ottawa teams.
The theory that Montreal and Ottawa produce players of higher grade
than the outer barbarians has luen
utterly destroyed by the performance
of thc Now Westminster team. A
team which travels over throe thousand miles and defeats the Montrcal-
ers and Shamrocks and Capitals in
quick succession, and draws with the
Torontos, has a better title to the
championship of the world than any
other lacrosse organization on   earth".
If the championship of the world
goes to the I'aeilic ('onset it will still
remain in Canada. Eastern Canadians
who might have preferred lo witness
thc triumph of their own representatives, must acknowledge the remarkable achievement of the Canadians
from the hanks of the Eraser  River.
