that does not settle tho all'air. The
least that can he done is to deduct the
Value of the insti omenta from the

��|hat the instruments were purchased
and nol. booked for some time later is
not officially refuted.

E' Calmly rellecting on   the reasons   why
E so     much   dust     was    unneces6iiiily

A little study of the natural configuration of Southern Kootenay and
Yale and the means of travel will
show that the city of Nelson is so situated as to command tlie jobbing
trade of those parts of the province.
What has occuircd shows that the
cntorprising wholesale men of Nelson
have taken advantage of their oppor*
tunities. The area tributary to any
other city is restricted. The great
factor In building up the jobbing
trade of Nelsou has been the quickness with which sorting orders ean bo
lillcd. Kaslu can roach Sandon or
Three Forks first but not Slocan lako
points, and if the telegraph is used
not oven Sandon and Three Forks.
Giand F'orks can do business in
Phoenix aud Eholt but not farther
east than Gladstone and even for
theso freight rates are against tbat
city. Rossland can supply Trail an
hour or so sooner than Nelson but is
slightly less advantageously situated
as regards the lioundary country than
Nelson. It hns therefore practioally
no jobbing trade. So it is with any
oilier town that can bo named
throughout Southern Britisli Columbia.
The wholosalo trade of Nelson has
naturally tended to it, though it has
beon industi-iusy cultivated during
lato years. Being the first city
founded in the mining country, the
lirst outposts of trade carrying only
small stocks bought them from this,
the nearest point of supply. As demand increased, Nelson's facilities to
supply grew with it until now there
are numerous very largo stocks of
groceries, hardware, liquors and produce for them to draw from. Dry
goods foi jobbing only, are carried by
hut one lirm, though somo of the
rota:I merchants in this line receive
outside orders whicli are an appreciated department of their business.
In conversation with several of ihe
lending bouses the managers state
thnt Lucy lind that not only is their
business increasing with the growth
of the country but they lind that they
aro supplanting Winnipeg, coast and
Eastern Canadian houses in dealing
with retailers already established.
The nearness uf their supuly enables
the country merchant to do business
with smaller stocks than if they purchased in Eastern Canada themselves,
Then too the Nelson dealer buying
in larger quantities get au advantage
of carload freight rates than a retailer
Tho Hold of Nelson wholesale houses
extends from Fernie and Ulairmore in
tho east to Midway in tiie west and
includes all points sonlh of the main
line of the  Canadian Pacific railway.

Washington, Oct. B.--France is disturbed at present uvor a deficit in her
wheat harvest, according to a report
received at Ihe stale department from
II. S. Consul Ilaynes, at Rouen. The
price of wheat, he says, already has
risen in France IH certs on overy Km
kilogams (280.40 pounds) anil the
price uf bread bus advanced one cent
on each loaf. The amount of wheat
whioh Franco must have for homo
consumption between now and this
time next year is reckoned at 317,85U,-
1)00 bushels. How much of tbis the
present harvest will supply is uncertain. Some of the authorities state
that on a pinch this year's harvest
will suffioe, but that next year unless
there is a wonderful harvest, France
will havo to apply abroad for foodstuffs. Others place this year's yield
nt but 440,000,000 bushels, leaving a
delicit to come from abroad this year
of 00,030,000 bushels. Ahout the same
conditions prevailed In ls'.i".
An   American Cavalry Man

Washington, Oct. fi,���Copies of general orders from tho department of
Cuba jusl received at the war department contain tne records of au interesting eourttiiartial trial. I-oy's
Darrell, a private in troop 3, 7th
cavalry, was tried on a charge Of
desertion, found guilty and sentenced
to be dishonorably discharged from
tho seivice. The reviewing authorities
found much fault with the finding of
the court holding that the penally
imposed for thc offense committed
was "scandalously inadequate," and
that all the testimony presented to.lhc
court was that of the accused in his
own behalf. Darrell pleaded ''guilty
with extenuating circumstances," to
the charge. The extenuating circumstances, says General Wood, the reviewing authority, wero that Durrel
was suspected of murder by the majority of the troop. On the morning
of April 10, 1900, Henry L. ('ouch, a
private in troop G, was found murdered in Ilia orduanee storehouse then
adjoining the barracks of his troop
at Plnar Del Rio, Cuba, the dark
stripes around his ?ieek plainly showing Hint ho had been strangled and
his skull crushed evidently by a rifle

F.   Andrews,    an   old prospector  and
miner,    who has been   living with the
family   Of   Mrs.    .1. Stewart, fur   thc
past couple of  years,    left   the   house
telling   Mrs.    Stewart   that   he    was
going dowu town   and   would not   be
back to dinner.    As he frcquenty took
his dinner  down   town   nothing  was
thought     of     the     occuronce    until
towards evening,   when   noticing that
Andrews     had     not     returned   Mrs.
Stewart became uneasy,   and enquired
of the neighbors as   to   whether   any
one had seen, him, and finally notified
the police hy   whom   enquiries   were
made and a search kept   up till   mid-
eight.    It   was   thought that thu   old
ma might have gone up to   his   property, the Goodenough,   just below the
Athabasca.    A telephone message was
sent to the manager who scut down to
the aback'on the olaim  that  Andrews
used to occupy   when iie was working
it,    but   without   any   trace   of   him
being found,    In the citj  three different   people   told   positively of   seeing
him in ns many different  places abont
II o'clock in the   morning,   but  after
that uo one had seen him.      One plaee
was at the   corner   of   Kootenay   and
llaker,      where     he   was   nppuicntly
going  towards   the   station,   another
was on Houston   btreet when   lie   was
heading westward.

nitudc   and   more   lieiielicial   result-i
the  exhibition   giten   in  Cranbrook
this year was an   unqualified   success
in every particular.
"It is a source of great satisfaction
to the management and to the people
of the city that there have been such
universal expressions uf approval anil
praise from tin- visitors. The
majority give credit where oredit is
due, and are not adverse to frankly
stating thai this effort on thu part of
the Cranbrook people will prove the
nucleus of a great exhibition in the
future 111at will attract thousands,
and he a potential factor in disseminating knowledge uf boutheasl Kootonay aim its marvelous riches among a
people lhat will he iinpressud with the
grand possibilities of the dlstict."
Tbe initiative in favor of the Introduction of Federal party lines in
provincial elections was taken hold
of resolutely by the Nelson Liberal
Association, which declared among
other things that the "only way that
stable government, inlloonccd and
guided by definite principles, us
against ever varying personal or
class interest, can be obtained, is by-
party government, Such is the accepted opinion of all well governed
countries, and by such means alone,
we .entuie to believe, can this province be rescued from the chaotic political conditiuu whioh has existed fur
several yeais. Oui association believes that in order tu secure success
it is necessary that, without further
delay, the whole electorate should
understand the position of our party
on this question aud as a result we
feel confident tbat the provincial Lib*
eral party should at once begin tu
gather to its ranks political strength
and effectually prevent dangerous
factious gaining such giouud us
would make Impossible ut a late dute
the carrying out of our desires upon
the lines ntated above."
The executive of the Provincial "Lib
eral Association very promptly took
up tbe suggestion of the Nelson body
and on Friday lust held a meeting at
Victoria at which Senator 'leinpleiiiiin
presided. It was resolved to huld u
convention of the party, at which
there will be three delegates allowed
from each constituency, as souu a it is
decided to hold ant thei general pro
vinoinl election. It is understood that
the executive is in favor of conducting
the next provincial election upon
strict party lines.
It may, thorefure, be taken for
granted that tbe next campaign will
be an old-fashioned contest between
Liberals aud Conservatives, like those
which are fought between the two
parties- in the older provinces. It is
certain, in any future campaign, too,
that the lubor element must not hi
lost sight of as it is reasonable to ex
pect that it will be able to elect fron
four to seven members. In case of
either tho old parties having only a
small majority the labor representatives will hold the balunce of power
as the Irish purty did ut one time iu
tbe British liouse of commons, lu an
eventuality like this they could prac
tically control legislation nnd they
constitute an .element which politicians must take into   consideration,
The Liberals have new tlnow down
the party gage and it is certain that
the Conseravtives will pills it up,
which is eivdeuced by the declaration
of many of the leading members of the
latter party. The looked for guneral
elections, which are certain to come
on soon, Will be among the most interesting and hardest fought cvoi
seen in the province. As it will be
the initial campaign contested on
party lines every inch of pulitical
ground will he bi'.teily fought fur.
Whichever parly wins it will give il
a prestige whioh will take the defeated party a long time to ovecrume.
The productive mining area Continues to grow in this province and it
is difficult tu say how far it will extend, I-'ur a long time it lias been
kuown that there exists promising
surface showings in tin: vicinity of
Kamloops, hut for one reason or
another the section has languished,
principally, perhaps, because it had
not attracted the attention of capital
lis successfully as some ofthe othei
districts. It is surprising, therefore,
tu learn that it is now- hus a siiipping
mine and that the smelter returns are
very satisfactory. This mine is the
Copper King, which has been extensively developed am' is making an
excellent showing, us recent shipments have shown tl.nt the output of
the mine is a high-grade gold-
copper ore. Recently the returns from
a shipment of second-class ore were
$0,50 in gold, a small silver value and
7'j per cent, copper, or a total
of $23.46, which is not so bad for
second class ore. It is claimed that
the Copper King will soon be on a
self-supporting basis. Tho result
attained by the Copper King should
stimulate interest in Kuuiloups mining properties.
The Liberals in No/a Scotia, in tin
recent provincial elections held there,
captured 3-1 uut of the 1)8 scats which
constitute thc legislative assembly
Doubt is thrown on two of the
fuur Conservatives alleged to be
elected and it is possible that the opposition will have but two members,
who unless they are unusually lively
and aggressive will scarcely make it
interesting fur the majority.

Thus fur we have viewed   our    subject from   the   intellectual   point  of
view and hn^o arrived at  the  oonelu-
.sion   that (<oil exists its   the   personal
Intelligence,   who   has    created    the
universe and who is  conduoting it   to
definite   nnd   lntelligonl   ends.    The
discovery of the character of  God   remains yet t*i be   made.     Is He a grod
(lod, northy  of tlie loving confidence
of Hi? creatures or ia   He  evil?    For
ihe satisfaction of such an enquiry we
must transfer   ourselves from    the intellectual to the  religious view   point
nn.I direct inn   attention   (l)   to  the
religious   nature   of   man.      Nothing
ean he more obvious than that religion
is natural to num.   So genoral is   hi*,
sense of dependence upon some higher
being anil so universal tho disposition
to  acknowledge    in   some   form    of
worship   his   obligations   to   such   a
lining,    that   man    has   been   distinguished   by   many    from    lhe     lower
creation   as   a   worshipping   animal.
Clearly   then   man   ha*,   a    religious
nature.      But   what   shall wo say   of
this nature?   Can it be trusted or  are
its   leadings   false ami   delusive?     In
the experiences of li'e we  have learned to trust owr powers.    Iustimts, intuitions   and   powers seom alike to be
met   with   corresponding and satisfying realities.    My powers of sense coordinate   wilh surrounding  pbyslcial
existences.   The conclusions of reason
hIho are found   to be   verified   in fait,
and I leant to put   confidence   in   the
powers    of   which   I   am   possessed.
Not   only   so,    but   among the lower
animal.-; I observe   that every   instinct
has   its   corresponding reality.     The
duckling follows natuie's loading anil
inns its lifo upon   tho   water   bithero
unseen.   The eagle,   in  obedience  to
the same teacher, llmgs itself from its
airy birthplace   upon   untried   wings
into tho   invisible   ether.      And   just
noTV the little songsters   of   a   season
iiave lett us   for the far-off,  unknown
southland,    To every instinct thuro is
an   answering   reality  nnd  the  first
heart   has  yet   to be disappointed   in
answering nature's   voice.    Shall   we
then expect loss when we  pnss in   the
ascending scale to the   highest powers
of  uiau?      Surely   these   cannot  be
alone doomed to   disappointment I    If
the humblest  bird   or beast or   insect
may rely upon its instinct ns   au   un
failing guulo,   and if man's poweis of
sense   and   reason   prove   universally
trustworthy, why should I deny a like
confidence to the noblest instincts nnd
aspirations of which   1   am   capable?
Until their testimony is proven false,
1 am bound   by   consistency to accept
it.    Hut my religious   nature   bids me
seek for a (lod of goodness   aud not of
evil.   Therefore  until  the non-existence of such a Being is  satisfactorily
demonstrated,   1 shall eontiuuo to ac
cept   the   leading   of   my     religious
(-) Hut I am not left to grope in
darkness for an undisooverable reality. If other leadings of nature reach
their goal in experience, sorely this
ono also. A good (lod must answer
tho yearnings which lie himself baa
implanted within me bv a revelation
of Himself to iuv consciousness. And
this is precisely what Christianity
profesuea to give. It offers to meet
my spiiitual longings by a self-manifestation of God in Christ, and demands to be subjected to the c-xperi
mental test. Moreover, the tea has
been made and thousands bear glad
witness to the reality of a God of
goodness and truth as revealed in
"spiritual consciousness. Her., as
everywhere experience must remain
the supreme oritevion and until it is
applied none may deny the reality.

In the easo   of Malone vs   Korgusoi
at the County court yestorday momiu-
tlio facts were as follows:   The plain
'ill',   Malone,   engaged   a teamster t.
haul   a   portable   engine to thn brew
cry in the Hume   addition,     On   th
way the load was upset,  as tlio plain
tiff  claimed,   through    tlie  driver'
carelessness,   and part   nl tlie   engine
Was broken.     The plaintiff   therefore
sued for damages.
The judge held that the precedent?
cited by counsel did not apply in this
case mainly fur the lonson that in the
cases qnotod tlie goods had been
drawn along good roiulH in older
countries under conditions which do
nut exist hen.. The ogett of the
Plaintiff had bee,, along with the
driver ���f tbo team in charge of the

how he Bhould approach the brewery,
thus taking over the responsibility.
He would therefore dismiss the ease.

Chief of Police Vaughn of Kossland,
arrived here last ovening having in
oharge Xhomns M. Beamish, a member of the Carpenters' union of Kossland, who is to servo a two months'

The intimidation consisted of following William Home, a non-union man,
about the streets of Rossland and calling him a scab. At the railway station at Kossland yesterday afternoon
ibout *-'U() friends of Beamish, principally union men, assembled to see
him go. They shook hands with him,

havo a pleasant time and that he
would return to them as soon ns the
term was over. Among tile orowd
were several women and children.
When the train pulled out of the depot
three hearty cheers were given for
Beamish. On the atrival of Chief
Vaughn and Beamish at Nelson over
100 sympathisers wore found assembled at tho depot, and among the
number was Hairy donos of Kossland.
Members of the crowd shook hands
with Beamish before ho took his seat

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector1 ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w'th a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold ,-iir through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of lire pot, over fire, thus consuming all tlie gases and pro-lucts of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in thc rear of base, insuring complete
control of the steve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it intensely heated, through the top adding greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it lo
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stove will hold lire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
