Says the Cascade Record: If it
should happen that the Liberals found
themselves in need of another costitu-
en'cy after the 7th of the month, they
might deign lo recognize the existence
of that part of the Dominion of Canada known as British Columbia. We
would under such a condition ho the

will be held at the committee rooms
on Baker Street when several addresses will be delivered by local mem
hers of tho party. It is also intended
to hold n mass meeting in the Opera
House shortly after November 7, at
which the candidates of tho Liberal

There Is absolutely no reason for
controversy of the fact that the people
of Manitoba, by nn overwhelming
majority, regard with pronounced disgust the performances of the tlreon-
way-Slfton Tammany ring, perpetrat'
ed under the guise of Liberalism. It
is very noocssary, however, to ensure
that nothing shall obstruct or distort
the expression of the public opinion
upon the doings of those men. Evon if
their electioneering methods were not
pretty well known it is only reasonable to assume that men who havo corruptly turned over, both openly and
secretly, millions of the public money
to corporations, who have violated
their pledges, and who havo been engaged in Systematically debauching
the press, the greatest source of pub-
lie Information, will hardly fail to
give their attention to the manipulation of the election machinery. They
are playing a desperate game and will
not stop short at anything which
would, in their eyes, promote their
-haiuvs of winning it. It is the duty
of the Provincial justice department to

Conservatives of Brandon electoral
division will heartily welcome their

Manitoba to aid in achieving the
glorious victory which the grand old
party is now shaping to celebrate on

It is officially slated that the- aerial
tramway at tbe Highland group at
Ainsworth will be completed before
the end of this week and shipping of
ore to the Hall Mines smelter will be
started immediately. Development
work upon the mine has progressed

Good progress is being made upon the
erection of tho concentrator. The
frame work of the mill is now in
place und the roof over it will be in
place this week. The first car of machinery has been delivered at the
property and is rapidly   being put   in

there Sunday morning, destroying
four bouses near the Governor's Ya-

lessee of the building is missing but
his guarantcr has been arrested and
the authorities hope to compel him to

will be manufactured against the sympathisers with the reform movement.

meats from the Emperor and Empress

Greenwood, 11. C. Oct. 20.���1. P.
Harlan.ore purchaser for the Standard
Pyritic Smelting Company, stated today that the complete smelter plant is
on its way to Greenwood unci will be
installed immediately upon its arrival. The smelter will be blown in
about the first of the year. Only one
furnace, of 300 tons capacity, will be
started at lirst, but the construction
f tho works is to be such that it can
lie duplicated at short notice.
Mr. Harlan says that the company
will experience no difficulty In getting ore, us there uro several properties in Wellington, Deadwood and
Summit camps ready to begin shipping us soon as the plant is completed.
When asked uhout the development
of the Marguerite mine, which is controlled by the Standard Company, he
said the main shaft Is down Kill feet,
from which level drifting is being
carried on to the east and west to
tap the ore bodies on either side.
Some ore has already been encountered in the west drift. Drifting is
also being carried on from the bottom
of the old shaft. About three cm loads
have already been raised to tlie ore
bins.
The Marguerite will be   In   a   posi-

although to a lesser extent than near
the walls. Assays from the footwall
run 22 per cent lead, 21; ounces silver
and 10 cents in gold. From the hanging walls the values are 15 per cent,
lead. 2'j ounces silver and 50 cents in
gold. These assays were made from
ore taken from the cropping.
The value of the strike, if it proves
as expected, can be clearly seen, for
the reason that with the establishment
of smelters to work Britannia ore the
market for the lead product will be
right nt hand and the expense of shipping to far off smelters will be entire-
lv obviated.

THE LATEST  MALCONTENT.
The Liberal leaders and organs do
not like Mr. Charlton's address to his
constituents. He says plainly that,
although he accepts the nomination of
the party convention, he will not bind
himself to the usual slavish support
of the Government. In fact, be makes
it very manifest before be gets
through that he has several grievances
against that Government, and should
ii he. sustained in power it is evident
that before the next Parliament is
over Mr. Chailton will give it a number of uncomfortable half hours. He
makes a wry face over the broken
pledge of the party to reduce the pub-
lie expenditure; be says in most explicit terms that the good times are
owing to causes over which the Government has no control; he laments
the action of Mir Wilfrid Laurier's
Quebec friends in reference to the
South African contingent, and he is
not at all pleased with the present
position of the question of preferential trade.
Like many other good, honest men,
Mr. Charlton doubts whether it is possible to get a preference in exchange
for ours. Be is inclined to believe
that the British will adhere to their
present policy and maintain existing
trade relations with tho Colonies. But
he thinks it was foolish on the part
of the Canadian (lovernment to decide on a preference without making
tlie least effort to obtain somo concession in return. The least Ministers
could have done was to try, and that
much they owed to the people in
whose name they were acting. If unwilling to disturb tbe fiscal arrangements at present existing, it was possible Great Britain would have considered the expediency of removing somo
of those restrictions which have proved so vexatious in connection with the
cattle trade. In any case, a mistake
wns made in giving the preference
without endeavoring to obtain something in return for it. In sending a
contingent to South Africa we were
moved by sentiment, but there is no
sentiment in straight mutters of business like this.
We do not think any one has the
right to assume that Great Britain
would refuse to consider the question
of a mutual preference. That is as
much as to say that she is incapable of
moving with the times; that she has
nothing more to learn or to do, and
has ro.ovled to stand still and let the
rest of the world take its course. We
quote from The London Financial
Timesof recent .date: "There is no
department in which American com-
petition is hitting so vigorously at
this .country as in the iron and steel
trade. The growth of those trades
across the Atlantic has been most
rapid and most startling, and at the
present moment most threatening to
this country's puispcrit., Putting
aside the prospect of reduced cost of
coal, the iron and steel men of this
country are centreing their hopes upon a reduction In output In the United
Males, to such an extent ns will mitt"
gal mpetition with tlie English industry. This reduction is not yet a
fact until the Yankees with their
power of production upon a tremendous scale and selling the surplus at
low prices shall have dealt English
trade- a blow severe enough   to cripple
ii permanently." When free trade
(iicat Britain is so openly betraying
her alarm at the rivalry of the protectionist United States, we may rest
assured that wc are on the eve of important llscal changes. The English
are practical enough to take any steps
n saary to protect   their commercial
interests. Imperial preferential trade
would no doubt disturb existing conditions, and no one need be surprised
if for that reason it be adopted before
many years.
expensive than was expected. What
have the people of British Columbia
to do with that?" The Colonist thinks
The Times' position is "unsound."
Most people will be strongly inclined
to think that it is immoral. It is the
new Liberalism, however.
Sir Mackenzie Howell intimates
that it will be strange Indeed if the
Senate does not demand an inquiry
into Mr. Cook's charge that he was
required to pay ten thousand dollars
for a scat in that body. However it
comes about, the matter cannot rest
where it is. The Premier's denial is
no denial at all, aud the charge still
stands as made by Mr. Cook, without
Contradiction or explanation. Tho
Senate will do right if it inquires
whether appointments to it are to be
made the subject of barter.
Col. Prior has been up in Nanaimo
helping Mr. Clives Wooley. During
the course of a speech he said that
two telegrams had been received by
the party managers in Victoria from
Mr. Italph Smith, appealing for a
Conservative nomination, ft was also
said that Mr. Cotton had telegraphed
In support of Mr. Smith's request.
This must be true, or Col. Prior would
not have said so. Tbe comment is obvious. We question the propriety of
disclosing it, and the circumstance
proves that the party leaders in Victoria would be none the worse if they
took their directions from Mr. Cotton.
Mr. Colin II. Campbell, who was
without portfolio in Mr. Maedonald's
Manitoba Government, was made Attorney-General in anticipation of Mr.
Roblin's succession to the Premiership, and of course had to go back to
his constituents for re-election. He
was successful by a majority of over
three hundred, although tbe Liberals
under Mr. Greonway and Mr. Sifton
made the strongest fight in their
power to defeat him. Certainly a local
election is not a Dominion election,
but the result in Morris is not as full
of hope as it might be for the Liberals of Manitoba.

TIIK DRUMMER'S VICTORY.

ost depths   of   my   pocket   so   as to
ore effectually   conceal   its contents
jHom the   grasping   and unscrupulous
Griggs.   1   sauntered   to the   desk and
paid my hotel bill.
Mf'Wlien does the   next   train   go   to
aBlikesviHe?" I asked.
S_j"In 10 minutes," replied   the clerk.
WYou'll just   have   time to make it if
you rush."
Bjl grasped my satchel anil prepared
to rush. "Hy the way," 1 said hurriedly, "don't let dirggs know of my
departure."
"Mr. Griggs left half an hour ago
'to catch the same train," replied the
jAouvc clerk.
K My heart fell!    Then   Griggs   must
Have had similar information and was
Hfter the same game,    it was   annoy-
Hig!    All the more   reason,   however,
_��liy I should hurry.
I 1 jumped into a cab and reached the
Station, nervous and excited.
I "A ticket for llurkesville 1" I cried.
'The   train   bus   just   left!   There
-on't be another till   three lifteeu   in
the morning."
Kor a moment the ticket oflice, with
Its red headed vendor, swam before
ny eyes, and I gasped for breath.
then I swore a strange horrible oath,
lueh as travelingiuen only use under
Jreat provocation.
Griggs, the unscrupulous. bargain-
Driving Giiggs, had half a day's start
Of me, and would certainly capture
the prize   I bad set my heart on.
'Give me a   special train," 1 cried,
['anything to get lo llurkesville ahead
pf the local."
Tlie ticket   agent   smiled   sweetly.
e evidently thought 1 was daft.   But
was in earnest.
"Well," said the agent, "if you
vant a special go and see the superin-
Iteudent. Perhaps he can accommodate
boii. It is only a matter of price. "
I At that moment a young girl, a vis-
pn of loveliness came to the window.
'Please, sir," Bhe said, "when can
train to Burkesvillo?"
J "Not till 3:15 in the morning!"
was the curt reply.
I "Why, I thought there was one
���around li o'clock," said the girl.trem-
lulouPly.
I "So there IB, but it left live minutes
| _o."
The girl   turned    her eyes   towards
line.    They were wet with tears. Such
[eyes!   They shone like stars   through
! pearls of dew.    My heart   went out iu
sympathy     towards  her,   her   disappointment seemed so deep.
'I suppose I'll have to wait," she
said simply, hut her mouth twitched
sadly.
"Are you anxious to reach llurkesville quickly'."' I   asked.
"Yes, sir. I've just bud a telegram
thnt my father met with an accident
and be is all alone. I don't know
what I shall do." Here she broke into sobs and I led her lo a seat.
"Don't cry, miss," 1 said reassuringly. "I, too, ain in a hurry to get
to that town. Perhaps I can get some
kind of a car to take us."
I left the young woman to her tears
and sought the superintendent, lie
listened to my story patiently, anil
11 na 11 y replied : "Icnn't give you a
special train, but if you don't mind
riding on a locomotive, I may be able
to accommodate you. An engine lias
just been ordered to Sabina to replace
one which lias broken down. Wc
could stop at llurkesville to let you
off."
I stammered my thanks. The relief
was so unexpected us to stagger me.
"You will hove to hurry," said tho
superintendent, "The engine leaves
In two minuts. That's her coining up
the trauk now,"
I rushed Into the waiting room for
my "companion de voyage," seized
her unceremoniously by   the   arm and
I 'Please,
I get a tr
hurried her   into   tbe   train shed, explaining us 1 went.
In a minute we were on tlie locomotive and in another the throttle was
open and we sped along the line.
The girl, who incidentally told ine
that her name was Jane Losly, thanked inc. profusely for my kindness. She
became cheerful again at the prospect
of.reaching her father without delay,
and soon we became quite confidential. Our other fellow travelers were
the engineer, a young fellow of 30,
and a gray-haired fireman. They were
too engrossed in their duties to pay
much attention to us, and wo were
left tu our own devices.
Traveling on a locomotive is nut as
luxurious as in a Pullman car. It is
not the kind of traveling one would
select fur u pleasure jaunt. The soot,
dust, cinders, odor, heat arc all objectionable and uncomfortable, but 1
must confess that with all theso disabilities it was a most enjoyable trip
for me.
Firstly, I knew that I would circumvent Griggs and reach town ahead of
him. 1 scented victory, and wat elated accordingly. Secondly, I was traveling with a most charming girl,
whose bright eyes and fascinating
conversation made me forget the annoyance of the trip and converted the
cub of that grimy engine into a veritable paradise. We sat on a bench,
where there was just room for two.
lu filet we bad to sit rather close in
order nut to incommode the engineer,
and so wo were soon iu sympathy
with one another.
Miss l.osly soon told ine all about
herself, her family, her pursuits. Her
mother was dead, her father a prosperous merchant in Burkesville. She
had been visiting reletaves in Hannibal when she received news of her
father's accident, a fall from his
wheel. Whether it was serious or not
she could not tell. I cheered her and
led her to hope for the best.
On we Hew ! Over bridges and culverts, around curves, through high
walled cuts, over steep embankments,
past straggling bouses, through verdant farms, along glistening rivers,
up steep inclines���rocking, swaying
like an infant's cradle from side to
side as we rush along on our mad
course. The stoker piled ou tlio sooty
fuel. Every time he opened the furnace door a heat as of hades burst out
in our direction and the air became
lurid. Great streams of smoke wero
belched out by the chimney and blew
into our faces. Showers of cinders
fell about us and tilled our eyes, ears,
nose and mouth. By the time we
had traveled an hour, we wero scarcely recognizable, so covered wilh soot
were we. But we smiled and were
glad in each other's society.
Still onward in our exciting chase!
There was no stop until we reached
lluriiette, and there we wired for a
deal track. At the next station, Ced-
aiton, we passed tho local train,
which had stopped there for water. I
got a glimpse of Griggs sitting at a
window, lie was smiling, no doubt
with glee at the ease with which he
had outwitted me. When next we met
the smile had vanished. By the time
wo reached Owassa, Jane and I were
the best of friends. We might have
know each other a lifetime. Her fa
vorite authors were mine. She played the piano, and knew all the pieces
I most admired. She could speak
with me in my favorite language,
French. She had all tbe traits, virtues, accomplishments I longed for
in a girl. She was beautiful and amiable besides. Nothing was wanting���
she was perfect. And I was in Kden.
1 blessed the loss of my train and the
gain of a locomotive.
At last, after three hours' ride, we
pulled in at Burkesville.
Jane, after giving me her address
and asking mo to call, got a cab and
drave home to her father. I went to
tlio hotel, scrubbed the dirt and cinders from my face and made a bee-line
for Featberly ,t Co.
When (Iriggs, the smooth-tongued,
insinuating Griggs, arrived half an
hour later he found me buBily engaged selling the biggust bill of my llfo,
and lie was completely left. To tills
day he cannot explain how I got to
llurkesville ahead of him, nor have I
vouchsafed an explanation. That
evening 1 culled on Miss Losly. To
my joy, I found thnt her father's
hurts wore not serious. A detention
in bed for a day or two would set him
right. The old gentleman received
mo very cordially, thanked ine for my
kindness to his daughter, and expiess-
ed n hope that we might become better acquainted. That hope lias since
been realized. Last Wednesday, Jane,
my darling, beautiful Jane, become
my wife.

now occupied by the Canada Drug and Book Company, we have sold

of goods at the depot which we must make room for, and during the next two
days we will cut the prices of our Lamps and Clocks to figures that will place
them within the reach of the family with the most modest income. We have
them in all styles, prices and makes, and so many of them that you will have

BREEZY TIME.
Well
A "Standing Room Only" lions
Pleased Last Night.
Tim   Fit.   and   Webster     Companj
were nol satisfied last   night with the
plandil ��� won from a "8. I!. 0." house
and announced before the curtain thai
they would appear again tonight at
the same stand and at the same figures.    "A .Uruezy   Time"   is    breezy
enough; no one will question that.
There aro few dull moments from the
rising of the curtain in the first act
until the finale ot the third. Some one
is doing something to entertain all
of the time and although somo of the
jokes were slightly too American for
a Canadian audience there were
enough of a general nature to keep
the audience in the best of humor
There are four or five girls in the
company and none of them is bad
looking. In fact they are rather good
looking, something' unusual with the
greater number of theatrical companies visiting' Nelson. They dance well
and sing well.and as George Williamson said of "Willie'' Caldwell's voice,
their "talking voices are good."
There are no stars in the company.
They all lit into their places and when
oue leaves the Opera House after the
performance he carries away a good
impression of the whole, but no particular impression of any single indi
vidual. The performance is a good
one and should be well patronized tonight. The curtain goes up promptly
at 8 o'clock.
CITY COFNCIL.
The Question of Lighting   the Streets
Was Left Until Tomorrow Evening
The question of lighting the streets

DOINGS IN COURT,
Ownership of a Sandon Lot is Doing
Disputed.
The ease of Harris vs. Kirlin,which
opened before the fall session of the
Supreme Court late yesterday afternoon, was continued through the
morning session today. It appears
that a dispute has arisen over the
ownership of a lot in the town of San
dull. From tbe evidence It was shown
that Mr. Harris is owner of part of the
townslte of Sandon on which is situ
ated the lot, tlio ownership of which
is disputed. Mr. Kirlin has been liv
ing upon the lot for some time past
and through certain arrangements
he asserts that lie is the real owner o:
the ground. Mr, Harris brought ae
tion to nave Mr. Kirlin removed from
the lot and to give plaintilV sole ownership. Only one witness besides the
plaintilV and defendant gave evidence,
Mr. A. David, a merchant tailor of
Sandon, gave evidence merely to
the effect that no work had been done
upon the property for the past two
years. Mr. Harris' evidence went to
show the way lu which he had obtained tlie property, The case will be
closed this afternoon. Mr. W. A.
Maedonald, Q, C, appeared for
plaintiff, and Mr, Robert McAnn, of
Kaslo, for the defendant,
It is expected that the .Supreme
Court will close on or before next
Saturday. The following eases are
vet lo be disposed of: Henley vs.
Rico, Manly vs. Collom, Foamier YS,
Madden and Lawr vs.   Parker.
THOSE DEBENTURES,
They Were Handed to Mayor Houston
Who Still Has Them.
The Miner   has   been    asked   by   a
reader what ever i ame of the bids
asked for by the city for tlie debentures which the voters antliorizecl last
'���iimincr. As near as can be learned
Ihe bids were turned over to Mayor
Houston prior    to   September   16,    the
date upon which they were to be opened, and since that time nothing has
been heard of them.
It is understood, however, that the
debentures are to be turned into the
Bank of Montreal as security for an
amount somewhere in the neighborhood of 8711,01)0, which represents the
City's overdraft at that institution. A
by-law authorizing such a transfer is
now before the council. It is not
known whether the Bank of Montreal
's to buy the debentures outright or
simply hold them as security.
JUST PLAIN MTNNKS.
When ex-Governor Hon. T. li. Me
Innes paid his visit to Atlin in the
days of his tenancy of Government
house, as all visitors to Atlin do, he
fell in with a well-built and extrem
ly useful Indian who had at that time
enjoyed a monopoly of the baggage
handling for transient visitors to the
camp. Since his retirement from tlie
gubernatorial chair Hon. Mr. Mc-
Innes has again visited Atlin���and naturally he saw Big Tom again.
"I guess you don't remember me
said the doctor, in a patronizing tone
���"As I was through here a year or
two ago.''
The Siwash surveyed the portly
form taking it in slowly from toe to
hat. Then he leisurely expectorated a
large quid of chewing tobacco.
"Nawitka," he observed, "Nika
kumtux mlka. Mika illehie Victoria." "Mox winters gone," and
he waved his arm majstieally���"mox
winters gone, mike hyas tyee
G-o-v-e-r-n-o-r Mclnnes, now," and
there was supreme indifference, verg
ing toward contempt, in tne tone���
"now mike just Mclnnes."

Ymir, B. C., Oct. ill).-An important strike has been made in the Forth

mineral was encountered by the miners who were driving tlie tunnel.
Assays from the new find give exceedingly high icsults, the gold values
predominating. The property is owned and operated by the Broken Hill

to erect a stamp mill on the property

AnOpen Letter
To Voters
And Voters' Wives,
Dkar Sir, and Madam :
I am a candidate for your
favor, for the position of leading jeweler of this good city
of Nelson.
I submit my platform for
your consideration :
I am opposed to " ways
that are dark" in business,
and favor open and honest
methods with the public. I
represent values as they actually are, and " call a spade a
spade " when I describe the
different qualities of goods.
I am in favor of selling
goods at such a profit only
over cost as will enable me to
continue business successfully, looking to my prosperity
in the large volume of business which will result in selling at moderate profits.
I am in favor of taking
trouble to please customers,
by returning their repair worK
promptly and keeping my
store clean, bright and attractive.
I respectfully solicit your
vote and influence���
And a visit to my store.
Sincerely yours,
T. H. BROWN.
