Cariboo's Second Prosperity.
Dr. Wilson Herald, who until
recently was practising medicine
in Cariboo, at 150-Mile house, is
staying at the Humo. The recent
strikes in placer ground in Horsefly country were made Bhortly
after he left but from reports that
had come in during the summer
it was evident that the edge of the
rich diggings since opened up had
then been reached. There wore
six prospectors who had sold out
their holdings for $2,500 each.
Campbell, the discoverer of the
new ground had left on his trip
that eventually turned out so
lucky while Dr. Herald was yet in
Speaking of mining in Cariboo,
Dr. Herald said that that section
would, bo believed, turf out more
gold than it yet had. The s snrcb
for old river beds promised to
turn out most successful and several companies had been organized to operate along those lines.
The plan is to sink to bed rock of
an ancient stream, then wash over
the gravel on the river bed.
Senator Campbell, of California,
who worked on the famous blue
ledge of California 40 years ago,
has charge of one enterprise which
promises good returns. Prom
creeks that looked no more promising in the early days millions of
dollars in gold was taken out and
there seems every probability that
just as rich diggings will again be
Dr. Herald is now engaged in
ranching in the Canadian Northwest.
Pekin, Nov.  8.���A violent dispute with M. Paul Lessar, Russian
minister in China, over the Mancunian treaty appears to   have
been the immediate cause of the
death of Li Hung Chang.    Japan
has for   a   moment   been able to
frustrate the designs of   Russia-
A fortnight ago  the Japanese legations secured a reliable outline
of the toi ms of tho treaty, and
thereupon   demanded    that   the
Chinese plenlpotentaries officially
lay befoie them the text.   Then
tho Chinese   plenlpotentaries refused to comply with the demand.
Thereupon  the Japaneso government from Tokio   communicated
with  the southorn viceroys and
induced them   to   use   their   influence with the   Empress Dowager against  the  treaty.    In the
meantime the  Empress Doweger
instructed Li Hung Chang to communicate the treaty after certain
modifications to the powers and, if
they did not object, to sign the
Bame.   Li Hung Chang visited M.
Lessar and explained to him the
instructions.   The Russian minister strongly objected to revealing
the text of treaty to the ministers
of the other powers and a stormy
interview ensued. Li Hung Chang
went hom9 in a violent passion
and had a hemorrhage which doctors attributed to the over exertion of a weakened system.

London, Nov. 8���The weekly
papers tomorrow will have a good
deal'to say about the defeat of
Tammany Hall. The Spectator
thinks that Mr. Roosevelt's succession to the Presidency, giving all
reformers hope and confidence,
weighed heavily in the contest
adding that it may be expected
his influence will be felt iu American'cities like Philadelphia and
Chicago which the paper says are
hardly in better condition than
New York, though they are less
closely watched by Europeans.
Continuing the paper says: "If
this is the case President Roosevelt's term of office will benefit
the whole world, for the condition
of American cities is at present an
opprobrium to Libralism everywhere. The peoplo there are
really free."
The Saturday Review, finds that
Tammany Hall is the product of that false' sense of
equality prevailing in America,
accrrding to which a settlement
of all sorts of minor offices is put
into the hands of electors who
care nothing about them."

Roconstructon of companies,
Whittaker Wright is out with
a proposal to reconstruct the companies with which he has been so
strongly   identified   during    the
past few years.   The three companies have a combined a capitalisation of ��5,000,000, or teally deducting the ��1,000,000 held by the
London & Globe and the British
America or unissued by the Standard Exploration. ��1,000,000.   The
new company will have a capitalisation of ��2,000,000 in ��1 shares.
It is   proposed   that  1,000,000 of
those shares shall go to shareholders in the old companies in the
proportion of four to one in the
new company.   The other 1,000,-
000 shares will be offered for sub-
Fcription and the proceeds go toward liquidating the debts of the
old   companies   and  to  provide
working capital.   The reconstruction is contingent upon a satisfactory compromise  being made
with the stock exchange creditors,
the consent of the courts to the
proposed reconstruction, and the
approval of the shareholdars of
the old companies.
New Manaoer Too Frlondly to Union Men Is
Relieved ol Position.
Rossland, Nov. 8.���Trouble has
come to the management of smelter t Northport. Jules Labarthe,
the new manager, upon accepting
the position, stipulated that he
should have a free hand in the
managment. After examining
the plant on Wednesday he decided that it needed a complete
overhauling, which meant the
closing of it down for some time.
The statement is also made that
he had arranged with some of the
union strikers to give them employment. Taking these two
things together the non-union
men. who have been employed
only a short time, foresaw that
they would soon be out of work
and with the winter ahead of
them the prospect was not
cheering. Thoy consequently laid
their case before Mr. Precheville,
the managing director, who hastened to Northport and there upheld the cause of the non-union
men. It appears that Mr. Labarthe insisted upon the terms of
his agreement that he should have
a free hand to employ whom he
choso. The conference was closed
by Mr. Labarthe and his assist
ants from the Trail smelter going
back to resume their old positions

A telegram received yesterday
announced that tho appeal taken
by the defendant in the case of

The funeral if F.rnest S. Shaw,
the little son of Mr. .-1110 Mrs. Angus
Shaw, will take place th'
Hon. James Dunsmuir, premier of
B. C, which involves a portion  of
the big estate.    Mrs.   Dunsmuir
asks   for   tho   delivery   of 4,998
shares  in  tho   Robert  Dunsmuir
Company,   Ltd.,   which   controls
the Esquimalt & Nanaimo railway,
Wellington  colliery,  Comox   and
Extension  mines, collieries, coasting steamers,   and   an   immense
amount  of other  property.    She
claims that she is entitled to these
under an   agreement which   she
entered  into with  the defendant
and her otlier son, the late Alexander  Dunsmuir   in    September,
1890.   Shu also wants an account
of all  dividends and profits upon
said shares from   January 31st,
1900, and payment of same to her
with interest.    It is further asked
that defendant give a declaration
that tho shares have been and are
now held  by  him as trustee for
the plaintiff and   that ho be ordered  by   the   court not to part
with them.    Mother and son have,
so rumor says, had business differences during the past jfew years.
The    shares    mentioned   in   the
action  are believed to   be those
left by the late Alexander Dunsmuir   to   his  brother.    And   the
action  in no way affects the fortune left by  Alexander Dunsmuir
to his  widow and  by her to her
daughter,  Edna Wallace Hopper,
the actress.

Judging from all indications, a
new era is about to dawn in British Columbia, and the long list of
coalition governments, combinations, and irresponsible councils,
will, we hope, soon pass into history, if history deem them worthy
of space on the pages of our provincial record.
Much development has taken
place in the province during the
past five years, and nowhere in
this progressive Dominion of
Canada have conditions changed
more than in this province-
Whatever the need may have been
for strong, clean, able government
in the past, the conditions are
now such that if British Columbia
will reap the prosperity which is
here to command, she must at
this time demand that her executive comprise men of ability and
character. The absolute irresponsibility of the politicians at Victoria will cease as soon as the
writs are issued for the coming
provincial elections. That the
coming contest will be one of
strict party lines there is no doubt
whatever, and although it is difficult to secure in every member of
parliament, those qualities that
denote the statesman, yet, either
party going into power with their
following of party voters, will be
hailed with joy by a long-suffering
public, in tbe belief that an honest
effort will be made to legislate for
the best interests of British Columbia.
Although both parties are in
favor of a straight party fight,
the electors will not take such a
violent interest in the contest, but
will return to powor the party
that has the best men as its
standard-bearers. It is utter folly
for either party to go into the
fight with any handicap attached
to it. This is a critical time with
both parties, and iu the interest
of the Liberal party, the Liberals
of the province of British Columbia should insist ou a convention
being held, in order that a provincial platform may be laid down,
and that the men with the confidence of the party be officially
elected as leaders of the Liberals.
Every precaution should be taken
to have no repetition of the last
Liberal convention (?) held at
Vancouver. Such a gathering held
now would, if carried out as before, most effectually put the
party out of tho running, not only
for the present, but for a long
time to come.
Time was when British Columbia consisted of only tho sottlers
on the Pacific coast, which portion
of the province developed to such
an extent that the interior was
entirely lost sight of. But now
what have we? A large province
with many large towns, with
large populations, all of which are
entitled to a voice in all matters
pertaining to the province.
Then let the Liberals of the
provinco meet in convention in
some central town, and in the
spirit of fair play, and with equal
representation from all parts of
province, either by delegate or
proxy, select their platform and
their leaders ; and when the elections are put on the party can go
honorably before the electorate
for their verdict.
the inhabitants of the big city is
so dense that it interrupts street
and railway traffic. The best
illuminauts fail to lighten up the
Stygian darkness that accompanies the fogs. A fog in the
country or on the seashore is not
to be compared to these fogs
either in density or in composition. The fog is intensified by the
smoke and the latter is the result
largely of incomplete combustion.
The meteorological department
has been appealed to and a movement is now on foot to have forecasts of the fogs so that the citizens may be warned in time. An
agitation is on to migitate in some
way the smoke nuisance. The
scientist or inventor who world be
able to devise a means by which
the fogs could be dissipated or
mitigated would earn the lasting
gratitude of the dwellers in
The telegraphic dispatches have

and this is the season of the year

The Slocan Drill says that in the
month of October there was more
ore shipped from the Slocan than
in any previous October since the

An addition is soon to be made
to the Kooteny press in the
Marysville Mail Tribune, which is
to be issued about November 10th
in the smelter city of Southeast
Kootenay. The new venture on
the stormy journalistic sea is to
be launched by Messrs. Simpson &
Hutchins, of Cranbrook.
Among the brand new exchanges
received at this office is the Prank

It is a neat publication and filled

Senator Tillman of South Carolina, is very much dismantled because President Roosevelt of the

Today is tho anniversary of the
birth of our gracious sovereign
King Edward and according to the
Dominion statutes of 1800, chap
ter 23, section 14. is a legal holi
day. As it is the first anniversary of the birth of the King
since his accession to the throne
and as tho people have been in
the habit of observing the glor
ions 21th of May they have not
yet become accustomed to the ob
servation of the birthday of the
present king. Out of rospect to
tho king, however, business will
be suspended in this city aud it
will be observed as a general holi
day. Purther on whon we grow
accustomed to celebrating the
king's birthday the occasion will
be marked with more elaborate
programs, such as processions,
public speaking, banquets, etc.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene, It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It oures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

derived from it. I Was a slave, chained
with putrid sore thront and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

tbis dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but res lived lo give it a trial.

On Wednesday there was a big
gale blowing and heavy sea running
on the lake, so much so that the
big steamers thought they were
having trouble enough, When,
however, they came in sight of the
little tug Red Star, buffeting the
waves with a large barge in tow,
they thought, by comparison, that
their job was a light one. After
being out 13 hours from Kaslo,
Captain Conway brought the scow
safely to her destination.
With a K, ason for Misleading the Father,
"We have tried for a long time
to persuade Papa that perhaps his
diet had something to da with his ill
feelings, he used to laugh good
naturedly and say 'why girls, I've
been used to eating and drinking
ever since I was a boy, I was trained
that way, no, I f��ar some change
has taken place in my body and I
shall never be well again.'
We often suggested that he leave
off codec and tobacco, but he urged
that they did not hurt him und were
a comfort; so we acquiesced until
one day sister insisted on making
the coffee one-half Postum Food
Coffee and it was made that way
for about 10 days until papa seemed
brighter and complained less of his
'That's it!' sister exclaimed, and
from that day she served Postum
alone without any coffee.
1'apa never detected the difference
for wc have learned the secret of
malting Postum to give it a prime,
crisp flavor) it is easy enough, just
allow it to continue boiling 15
minutes, counting from the time
boiling commences, not from the
time it is placed on stove,
Well the dear old soul secmcu
day by day to take on new life, he
began to stop at the office later and
was full of fun when he came home
in the evening.
The proof is plain enough that
morning after morning, year in and
year out, we had been feeding our
dear old governor with coffee that
is really a strong liquid drug and ii
was slowly but surely killing him.
When it was partially removed he
got a little belter anil when it was
entirely removed and the pure food
coffee, Postum, seived, his recovery
was rapid.
We don't fool papa on many
things, but we just had to this time
for he was steadily and surely leav
ing us and we love the dear old man
too much to leave anything undone
that will keep him here.
It is woman's privilege, you
know, to tease, cajole, and beg,
then 'finesse' if the dear old hard
headed things won't listen to

The council of the board of
trade held a meeting on Thursday
evening to attend to matters of
internai economy. The regular
monthly meeting of the board
will be held on Thursday evening
next. Owing to the short time at
disposal a mineral exhibit will not
be sent to the mineral exposition
to begin in New York iu the lirst
week in December.
The Smoker to be given in" the
Opera House tonight by the members of the Boat Club is to be a big
affair. The best of talent that is to
be had in the city is to appear on the
boards. The price of admission has
been placed at a figure within the
reach of everyone and already nearly
nearly 200 tickets have been sold.
The performance, which includes
choruses, solos, boxing, club-swinging, and animated pictures will commence at 8 o'clock.
we are told that a strong pressure
has been brought to bear with the
object of getting a respite and it
is hinted by several of the gamblers that there will be unpleasant
exposures if they are molested.
What can be meant by this ? Is
it not the gamblers who should
fear unpleasant exposures ? It is
well known that there is a band
of men, gamblers, banded together
to do evil to any unsuspecting
youth who may take up his residence in Grand Forks.
One of those gamblers was
heard to remark that they were
making money fast. They have
one of the best hotels at their
disposal where they entrap their
victims. Other instances of this
nefarious trade could easily be
given. Grand Forks, oue of the
most beautiful places on God's
earth, is at present a most dangerous place for young people to inhabit, its wickedness is so great.
There are other towns in the
Kootenays that are not far behind
Grand Forks in this respect. Is

Rov. McLaren's Offer.
Editor Minor.���Tho Miner of the
5th of November gave the welcome Information that the Rev.
Dr. McLaren of Vancouver had
offered himself as deputy chief
of police, without salary, so that
he might have tho privilege of
fighting against the wholesale
gambling that goes on in Vancouver. Tho police are powerless, as
the places are run as clubs. Some
times our ministers have appeared
to be powerless also, but this step
of the Rov. Dr. McLaren's is a step
in the right direction, especially
as he is one of the best known and
most highly respected ministers
on the coast. Also in The Miner
of November 3rd the information
is given that the city council of
Grand Forks, B. C, has decided to
suppress all gambling games. But
The Rubens Vest is the BEST
undershirt ever devised for infants. No
