Rossland, Nov. 25.���Hon. Smith
Ourtis, M. V, P., for Rossland, returned last night from a visit to tho
coast where he spoke at political
meetings iu the Chilliwack and Delta
ridings and tho city of Vancouver.
All these meetings were largely
attended, and resolutions of non-
confidence in the government were
carried unanimously in Delta, (at
Ladner), and Vancouver, nnd with
but two dissenting voices at Chilliwack. Mr. Muiiro, M. P. P., for
Chilliwack, Mr. Oliver, M. P. P.,[for
Delta, and Mr. Gilmour, M. P. P.,
for Vanoouver, all expressed themselves as not having changed tbeir
attiude towards the Dunsmuir government, and Mr. Gilmour said he would
not support tho Dunsmuir government
unless it came out and adopted the
22 planks of tho Martin government���
a thing it certainlv will not do. Mr.
Monro is desirous that tho opponents
of the government should meet and
decide upon a policy and line of
action. Mr. Oliver is willing to attend
it, and Mr. Gilmour is willing to
sapport a redistribution act and would
then like to sec an appeal to the
country on party lines���a oourse
whioh commends itself to a great
many people. The Vancouver meeting was remarkable in this, that no
one could be found in his own constituency to approve publioly of the
flop of Joseph Martin into the arms of
Mr. Curtis at the Vancouver meeting

followed with regard to the Coast to
Kootenay and other railway projects,

Grand Forks, Nov. 25.���Rajraond
E. Thicknesse, a young Englishman,
was found dead on tbe Dewdney trail
between Cascade and Christina hike
by Peter Johnson, a prospector, on
Friday morning. Johnson lost no
time ln notifying the authorities of
his discovery and they in turn summoned Dr. Westwood, a district ooro-
ner, from Grand Forks. An inquest
was held. The jury returned a ver-
ict of death from natural causes.
The evidence disclosed that the deceased had lately gone on a visit to a
friend named Robertson who lives
near English point, eight or ten miles
up the lake. The supposition is that
he left on the return trip laiit Monday
and succumbed when near Casoade.
Life had evidently been extinct for
several days. Thickneese has lived in
the vicinity of Casoade for nearly two
years, ne was apparently well to do,
and received remittances regularly
from England. His father is tho
bishop suffragan of Leceister,
Rossland, Nov. 25.���Another case of
smallpox was sent to thc isolation
hospital today. Kenneth Chlsholm,
who resides norMi of the Red mountain railway track near Washington

Montana stables considerably of late
and the health officer is of thc opinion
that he contracted the disease there.
Tom Hulbert, who has been working
at the Montana stables, was taken to
tho isolation hospital on Sunday. He
has the disease in the [confluent form.
He is In a critical state and is recovery is doubtful. Resides these two Dr.
Rcddick has one snspioious case awaiting development and three or four
awaiting further development. A
special meeting of thc health committee of tbe city council was held
this afteinoon and it waa resolved to
begin an energetic crusade to stamp
out the disease.

Depth   of   Feeling   Outside
England on South African War.
Heavy  Fighting at Culebra
on   Sunday   Afternoon.
Foreign Representatives Unofficially Ask U. S. Cabinet to Act.
London, Nov. 25.���Sir Thomas
Wyiniss Reid the author aril editor of
an article entitled A Message From
America in the December number of
the Nineteenth Century, will quote
one of the most distinguishing members of the cabinet as saying: "I do
not think you in England realize the
depth of feeling that exists outside of
yonr own country on the subject of
the South African war, nor the extreme gravity of the situation whioh
that feeling has brought into existence. I am not speaking of American
feeling which is largely on yonr side,
but the moro friendly wo are to
England the more anxious we are to
see you extricated from the meshes
of the net in which you are now
caught. It is terrible to think of the
pitifnlncss of the whole thing and of
the loss suffered by universal humanity owing to the effaceraent ot England for two -years and the consequent
absence of her influence from the side
of justice and progress."
8ir Thomas further Bnys the member
of cabinet in question told him that
almost daily appeals were being made
to the government of the United
States by representatives of European
powers to take some step to end the
war. Those representations from the
ministers of the powers were made
unofficially, although the United
States government well know their
representative governments were
backing them in it.
J. Chauncey Boyengton, who was
brought from Feinie to stand trial for
bringing stolen goods into Canada
came up for speedy trial before His
Honor Judge Forin yesterday. The
witnesses for the prosecution were
Minteer, the keeper of a livery stable
at Gateway, Montana, and James
Bourlette, a livery stable employee at
Elko, B. C. At the trial the original
charge was alteied to that of larccn .
From the evidence, what oecured was
that the accused hired a horse from
Minteer to go to Carney's camp for
wedges used in splitting wood. From
there he went to Elko, about 10 miles
further and there he got a loan of $6
from the witness Bourlette leaving
thc horse. He then went hy train to
Fernie where according to tne prison ���
er's statement he expected to meet a
man who owed him money. He stayed
there two days and in the evening of
the second was arrested for stealing
the horse. He was found guilty and
sentenced to one -ear's imprisonment.
A. M. Johnson prosecuted, and R S.
Leunie, defended.
Yard Engine 584, whioh has been
nick-named "Dennis," again was the
cause of a smashup yesterday when it
crashed through the wharf leading
down to the slip totally wrooklng
part of it, the engine itself only being
saved from falling off the wharf by
the footwalk, against which it fell.
Owing to some of the timbers in this
part of the wharf having bocome insecure workmeD wen employed yesterday iu taking out the weak ones
and replaoing them wilh new timber.
They had withdrawn the supports
under one section of tho wharf, leaving the dock resting on two jacks,
when dinner time came and they went
away on the hand car. A little while
after the yard engine came along
with two cropt; freight ears which It
waa taking down to load with ore
from thc steamer Kaslo. The yard
signal was olear, and not knowing of
the work that was going on further
down the engine went along the slip
at thc usual speed, shoving the cars
in front. When lt reached the weak
spot both cars went over safely, but
the engine, which ia an extrcmly
heavy one.crashed through the wbarf,
smashing ties and supports to pieces,
and was prevented from going off the
wharf entirely by the fact of the corner of tho cab catching nnd resting on
the board walk, which prevented its
toppling over. This engine had been
partially ropaired after its smash up
of last week, but was to have gone to
the shop today to have them com-
Liberals Slowly Retreat but
Action Was Not Decisive.
Washington, Nov. 25.���It is pretty
veil understood here that there is to
be no bombardment ot Colon by either
sido. While Commander McCrae was
given wide discretionary power and
nothing was said to him about stopping the nombardment directly,nevertheless the state department established a precedent in these matters last
year when it instructed Mr. Cudger to
warn some inusurgents at Panama
that they would not be allowed to
bombard that port. If the government trcops on the Pinzeon should
persist in their purpose,it is said that
the commander of the various warships at Colon would require that
ample time be allowed for the withdrawal from the town of all foreigners
and the attacking foicc, to escape
restraint, would be obliged to direct
thsir bombardment with suoh rare
precision as to destroy the insurgent
defenses without harming the railway
property and even without endangering the passage of trains. Conditions
probably not to be met.
The secretary of the navy cabled
Capt. Perry of the Iowa to assume full
command nf all the U, S. naval forces
on both sides of the Isthmus in order
to insure harmonious operations.
Consul General Codger's last dispatch,
which came after 1 o'clock, was about
as follows: Our troops bave arrived
at Matachin, one-half of the way
across the Isthmus. No obstruction
and the Colombian government seemed
to be viotorious ovei the insurgents.
CoIod, Nov. 25.���Yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock the schooner Clapet and
a railway barge returned to Panama
bringing 350 men from Chorrera, being the remainder of General Alban's
expedition. Great crowds gathered at
the wharf to witness the landing of
the soldiers. They were received with
bands of music but the music sounded
mournful, more like a funeral march
than the joyful strains of victory.
General Alban had his usual calm
and selfpossessed manner and acted
more like a man on whose hands time
hangs neavily for want of something
to do than one coping with grave
responsibilities under trying circumstances.
At. 3.110 yesterday afternoon at tbe
head of 700 men General Alban left
Panama by train for Empire station
where the Liberals were reported to
be in very strong numbers. His purpose was to surprise and route them.
Tbe train bearing these troops was
held just before it arrived at Oulera
station owing to the Liberals opening
fire on Alban's advance guard. Alban
discmarked his men from the train
which returned to Panama. The fighting at Culera lasted froom 4.40 p. m.
until 9 p. m. Tho government troops
continued lo advance and the fighting
was stubborn all along the railway
line aud continued until Empire
station, a mile and a half distant,
was reached. The Liberals continued
slowly to retract. Alban's men following them until the latter eventually reached Matachin station. An
armed guard ot marines from the
United States battleship Iowa has
reestablished the transit of the
Isthmus and details from the Iowa's
marines are non protecting each passenger train. There has been fierce
fighting at Empire station on the railway line between Panama and Colon
betwen the insurgents and the troops
of the Colombian government with
very heavy losses on both sides,
Additional Money Bylaws���Route
Matters Disposed Of.
At thc meeting of the city council
last evening nil thc aldermen were
present. Mr. Beer and Manager An-
nablo of the opera bouse wore present
to ask for a rebate on the opera house
tax for this yoar owing to the improvements made and owing to the
fact that the opera house   was  closed
for a time on account of the action of
the council. On motion it was decided to give a rebate of six months
on the tax.
Dr. Stoddard was present to apply
for permission to take power from the
West Kootenay Power Co., over the
oity wires. On motion of Aid. Selous,
seconded by Aid. Hamilton, it was
decided that the application should be
granted, the rate to be subject to the
decision of the superintendent of the
city's wires as to rent for the wires
over wbioh the power would pass.
Mr. E. Kilby complained to the
counoil regarding the state oi the
roadway in front of his house on
Water street at the corner of Park
street. The matter was referred to
tlie oity engineer to see how the evil
complained of conld be best rectified.
The report of the fire, water and
light committee was read, In which it
was recommended that T. H. Rankin
be -appointed engineer at the city's
electrie light power house.
The report of the board of works
was also rem] in which it waa recommended (I) that a six foot sidewalk
be placed from the west end of Victoria street on Falls street to Silica;
(2) that tenders be called for a supply
of fifty headboards to mark the pauper
graves at the city cemetery; (R) that
the oity engineer be instructed to take
steps tj abate tlie nuisance from
stagnant water getting under the
buiding on lots 23 and 24 in block 01.
Both reports wero accepted after the
various clauses had been discussed by
the council.
A letter was read from F. W. Swan-
nel to remind the finance committee
that the sum of $500 of its grant
towards the Kootenay Lake General
hospital was yet unpaid by the city.
It was decided to have the sum stated
paid at once.
A letter was read from the manager
of the Gas company offering to supply
the city with power at the rate of $48
per horse power per year.
The mayor stated that the letter
had been received some time ago, but
that he had asked as to how long it
would take to intsall a gas engine
and several other particulars to which
he had not yet received an answer
from the company. He had wired
several firms as to the cost ot the
engine that would be needed, and delivered in Nelson it would be $6,000,
The dynamos which would have to be
purchased for this engine, and which
would be practically useless in thc
event of the city putting in a power
plant, would cost $2,400 and that it
wonld take four months to install
Chief Lillie reported having seen a
team of fire horses in Rossland which
were well sailed for the purposes of
the fire brigade. He was instructed
to purchase the same at a cost of $500.
Three petitions for bylaws to raise
sums of money were then read. The
first was to raise the snm of $10,000
towards the high school the second
was to raise the sum of $5,0(10 to install a fire alarm syatm in the oity,
and tbe third to raise the sum of
$5000 to build an isolation hospital.
Considerable discussion followed regarding these, as some of the aldermen were of the opinion that a new
city hall was needed, also a fire hall.
It was finally decided that the amounts
of these bylaws should bo embodied
in that to raise $150,000 for the electric power plant. Alderman Selous
thereupon gave notice of intention to
bring up the bylaws at the next meeting of the council.
The matter of the difference in grade
between the sewer on Victoria street
and the connections from the Salvation Army banacks was brought up,
and referred to the city engineer.
A scheme is afoot in Hamilton,
Ont., to organise a company with a
capital of (2,000,000 under the name
of tbe Canadian Hotel syndicate to
purchase and operate a line of hotels
from Montreal to Vancouver. By purchasing together supplies for all tbe
hotels and by a central managonient
it is calculated that consierable reduction In the operating expenses ovei
separately conducted establishments
eonld be effected, first class accommodation could be given and good profits
earned. A start has been made by a
bond on a leading hotel of Hamilton.
Those Immediately mentioned in connection with tlie enterprise aro Mr.
Gllklnson of Wnldor; W. G. Reid,
Aid, Dunn, and Geo. II. Evans of
Hamilton. So far nothing definite has
to arrangements to obtain British
Columbia hotels have been given to
tho publio, but this province is included in the programme of the j
promoters. J

Montreal, Nov. 25.���The Northwest
is to have ancthcr outlet on the
Pacific coast. Mr. William Mackenzie
end Mr. D. 1). Mann arrived here on
Wednesday, accoiunanied by Hon. M*.
Wells,chief commissioner of lands and
works of British Columbia and Mr. .1.
N. Greenshieds. The extension of
their transcontinental line to the
Pacific has been under discussion for
some days in Toronto and Ottawa, as
well as hero Their intention was to
build from Yellow Head Pass through
Quesnelle, northwest to Skeena river,
but Messrs. Wells nnd Greensliilds on
behalf of the British Colombia government proposed that tho line should
be diverted at Quesnelle, aud built
southwest to Bute inlet.
\h a result of the negotiations
Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann have
submitted a proposlton for the early
construction of a diversion from Quesnelle, to begin at [Bute inlet and
build inland. At Bute inlet connection will be made by ferry to a point
at Seymour's narrows on Vancouver
island. Dunamuir's lire, whicb now
runs from Victoria to Wellington,
will be extended northward and oon-
neot at Seymour's narrows with the
teiry from Bute inlet. In this way
direot connection may be made with
Quesnelle and Victoria will become,
tho terminus of Messrs. Mackenzie.
and Mann's transcontinental line. It
is understood that as a result of the
negotiations the Dominion government will give the usual assistance
in tha way of suhsidies for the construction of both lines. Mr. Mann
and Mr. Qreenshields will go to
Victoria early in January to determine the terms and other details with
tha British Columbia government.
Before His Honor Judge Forin
The case of Agnes West vs. C. A.
Waterman came up for trial. In this
the plaintiff moved to set aside a tax
sale deed of Nelson property. She
alleges in statement of claim that defendant was applying to register a
deed which was a cloud upon her
title. The defendant's contention
was that this was not a gronnd for
action, as being under the act respecting tax sales made iu 1000. The
statement of claim was struck out
with liberty to plaintiff to file a new
statement of claim, costs to the defendant in any event, W. A. Macdonald
for p'.alntiff, 8. S. Talyor for defendant.
In Bremner vs. Arlington Minos, a
suit arising out of the contract to
deliver stulls, with the terins of

of costs to thu plaintiff. W. A.
Macdonald for defendant, b. S. Taylor
for plaintiff.
In Malone vs. Ferguson, the defendant asked for costa respecting an application for leave to appeal as to the
facts. Costs were refused on the
ground that no summons had been
taken ont for the original application,

The Dominion authorities have decided to send another contingent to
South Africa, to consist of 800 mounted men. It Is a wise and patriotic
measure ano will meet with the approval and commendation of all loyal
citizens. This determination will
serve as a rebuke to the insingilicent
pro-Boer element which declares that
Great Britain got herself into the
South African difficulty ; let her get
out of it as best she can. This element has oeen treated with silent contempt by the majority of patriotic
citizens and the sending of the contingent will be in the nature of a blow
in the face to them. Besides
this thc desire on the part of the
young men of Canada is as great as
ever it was to serve the empire and
this will give a fow of the many who
wish to serve the king an opportunity
of doing so. Great Britain does not
really need tho aid of Canaua in the
South African struggle. The coil
whioh Lord Kitchener is drawing
around the hostile Boers is being
slowly but surely tightened and It is
but a question of a short time when
even the last gueri la will be rendered
harmless. The contingent will, of
course, be useful in hastening tne end
of the struggle, as it will be composed
largely of western men and they
are tbe type who can defeat the Boers
at their own tactics.
The idea held by a very few that
Canada should take no part in the
struggle between Briton and Boer is a
most untenable one and nothing can
be said that justifies it. Great
Britain's army and navy are at the
disposal of Canada should she be
menaced       or      attaoked. British
naval squadrons are staticned on the
Atlantic and Paeitie which arc ready
at a moment's notice to defend her
shores. Were the British land and
naval forces not available to defend
Canada it would be necessary for her
to maintain at a large expense
standing army and navy. The cost
of sending a few contingents to South
Africa is a mere trifle to what the
expenditures would be if land and
water forces had to be kept up.
Should the friction which now
exists lietwen Great Britain and Germany over thc utterances of Hon.
Joseph Chamberlain blaze into a war
between the two countries it is very
probable that Canada would be called
upon for 100,000 mon, Instead of a
few hundred, as in tho present instance and they would be forthcoming. If this was not enough and
the struggle was prolonged it is certain that another 50,000 oould be
promptly raised. Of all of the colonies
of Great Britain there Is none more
loyal than Canada nor is there a
colony wnere the spirit of imperialism
has a greater hold.
Incronscd interest is being manifested in molybdenite on aoooont of
discoveries of a considerable deposit
in the Nelson division anil on Pitt
lake. The metal is used as a dye for
sl He and in the preparation of speoial
steels. It gives steel a greater tough
ness and renders it more readily
worked wheu hot. Molybdenum steel
stands hardening better than that
alloyed with tungsten. For tool steel
from two to four per cent, of molybdenum is adder?, and for other qualities from one to two per cent. Orc��
of molybdenum, which is never found
in a pure state, but generaul'y In the
form of a molybdenite, a sulphate of
molybdenum, containing when pure,
41 per oont. of sulphur and .10 per
c6nt. of molybdenum have been found
in many placcB. In the Giant mine
iu the Rossland camp there arc large
deposits. There are several claims
near Nelson the ledges of which
carry considerable of the mineral.
So far aa could be ascertained from
the reports of the Dominion Geological
depnrtment, none of tho mineral has
ever been mined in Canada. The oro
is worth about 8.10 per ton while the
cflned  product   is   worth   11.25   per
pound. In the United States in IBM,
80 short tons were mined of a value
of fsO per ton. Of molybdenum 9,550
pounds were produced worth $1.25
per pound. In 1000 there was produced 189 short tons of a value of 850
per ton and 330,000 pounds of molybdenum valued at 81.25 per pound.
Tbe market for the metal is restricted or the production and the
price would oe larger and there is
evidently no very great profit in mining it. If a deposit could be found
close to transportation and if the ore
was of a high grade there should be a
small profit in it. The market, however, is so restrioted that the_chance
of molybdenite mining developing
into anything large is not veryjgreat.
With several mines in operation there
would soon be overprouction and the
prices would fall so that the profits
would vanish.
John ConBidine, the Seattle dive
keeper and gambler, charged with
the murder of Wm. L. Meredith,
formerly chief of police ot Seattle,
was acquitted last week by a jury.
Tbe verdict seems to be out of keeping
with the facts brought out at the
trial. Reliable witnesses testified that
Meredith had been beaten into a helpless oondition by the defendant's
brother before the fatal shots were
fired. It was also shown that Consl-
dine was a sworn and bitter_enemy_of
Meredith's. What saved Considine
principally waa his own testimony
that he had not been the aggressor,
that he had fought only when he
thought his life was in dangor and
that excitement had caused nim to
lose his memory of his own aots during the fatal enoounter. The case has.
attracted more than passing interest
and there are many who think that
Considine should have been convicted
because he had ever been a man of
violence, of crooked methods and has
been in a number of Bhady Bcrapes.
Meredith was a man of good tamily
and had always, as far as could be
ascertained, led a clean and honorable
life. He was chief of police under a
mayor whose policy was to make the
town "wide open." Considine was
the proprietor of a variety theatre
and a gambling house. Meredith and
Considine quarrelled, but what the
cause of the quarrel was Is uncertain. The faction of the republican
party opposed to the republican mayor
used Considine as an ally and Meredith was attacked in order to discredit the mayor. Consicine made an
affidavit to tho effect that Meredith
was a "grafter" and on.liis testimony
Meredith lost his position as chief of
police, or, more propeily speaking,
was "allowed" to resign. The stigma
fastened upon him by Considine made
Meredith almost oraay and when the
two met there was an encounter.
Meredith was tho aggressor and he
was killed. Had thc fight been be
tween Considine and Meredith only
the latter would probably have won,
but John ConBidine was aided by his
brother and the result was fatal to
Meredith. Many people who know
both men consider tkat Considine
should at least have been found gnilty
of manslaughter fcr killing Meredith
after he was helpless.
The Toronto Globe printB an able
article on the currency question and
says that banking oapital is not keeping pace with tbe expansion of the
trade and industry of Canada. It. says
that iu Eastern Canada there is a
shortago of bank currency for industrial purposes, as the banks have run
well np to the limit of their note
isBue. It suggests as a remedy, that
further increases be made in thc oapital of tho banks ol Canada to meet the
changing condition ot aifais.
It is apparently not generally
known that railway companies are required by law to redeem unused railway tickets at their full value, says
the Fernie Free Pross. Ignorance, no
doubt, of this hns beonjthe cause of a
number of prosecutions in Manitoba
for selling excuision tickets, by the
purchaser and severe penalties imposed. It Is illegal for any person,
oxcept an authorized railway or
steamship agent, to sell railway
tickets and the law provides for their
redemption if the value has not been
exhausted. Thc publio is fully protected by the statutes and the unused
portion of u railway ticket has only
to be presented to tho nearest railway
agent of the issuing road, to have its
full value refunded.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cnre in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
oases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good oondition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I wns a slave, chained
with putrid sore throst and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
suw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful nnd tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.    Semi me a full si/.e bottle.

excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles whieh combine with Asthma.
Its success is nstonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Gentlemen : I write thjs testimoniBMrom a sense of duty, haying tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been offlcted with spasmodic asthmu for th" past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from nil symptoms. I feel that I enn consistently recommend the medicine to all who are nlHioted witb this distressing disease.
Yours reBpeotfully, O. D. PHBLPb, M. D.
Dr. Taft Bros, Mbdicinb Co, Feb. 5,1001.
Gentlemen i I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt tbey have nil failed. I ran acroBs your advertisement and
started with a trial buttle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full-sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make suoh use of as yon see fit.

Hon. Joseph Chamberlain has one
feature in his character which oom-
pells admiration and *liis is his great
moral courage. By his recent animadversions on the Prussian army
lie raised a regular storm of hostile
criticism in Germany and many vials
of German wrath ire being poured on
his hend. Nor is tho storm confined to
Oormany for he has a number of
critics at home, especially among the
business and political element, who
declnro that he is intemperate and
says wrong things at wrong times.
It is certain that ho is an extremist,
but this is a fault which many strong
mon have. Mr. Chamberlain, in the
midst of tbo storm which he has
evoked, is tho one calm figure and
when Interviewed said that while be
did not care to enter into a controversy he would stand by what be said.
Doubtless the agitation will spend its
fury, be the usual nine days wonder
and then die a natural death. In the
meanwhile Hon. Joseph Chamberlain
is calm and Importubablo and in this
as well as overy other utteranoe be
has made will stand by what he said.
What he said he believed waa true
and he aees no reason to recede fiom
tbe position be has taken because certain people object to having the truth
told. Mr, Chamberlain may bave
strong views on a number of subjects,
bnt he has the saving virtue of having
tbo courage of his convictions.

Windermere, Trout Lake and Naksup
mining divisions from the south end
of Revelstoke and Golden ridings and
amalgamate the remaining portions
into one riding, allotting it one member. The riding so constituted, according to the Weekly Tribune of
October 30th, would have 4,400 of a
population which is approximately
correct. South East Kootenay, with
that portion of Oolden riding known
as Windermere mining division,
according to The Tribune's estimate,
wonld have 0, P00 population and
aeoording to The Tribune's idea of
fair play would have a representative
to each 3,250 of population, leaving
the tolerably large margin of 1,150
population to North Kootenay. The
two lidings of Lillooet have 1,759
population, yet The Tribune of
October 30tb is willing to give it one
member, North Kootenay having 882
more than douole of a population. It
looks as if the Tribune (whose political animosity has almost become a
oraze) had in view the annihilation of
Hon. W. U. Wells' political career,
when it framed that sort of a Jim
Crow measuro assumed to be basel on
population. Tho Tribune cannot on
any pretext of equity or juBtioe gerrymander Revelstoke and Golden ridings. There is absolutely no community of interest, no intoreourBC, no
trade or traffic between Golden and
Revolstoke ridings. They are as
much isolated by an impassable
mountain barrier as Revelstoke and
Vernon ridings. I have no desire for
undue representation ot favors for
North Kootenay. I have not represented a pocket borough and have no
political aspirations to do so. Political ambitions should not be considered in the framing of a fair measure
of representation. I am sorry to orave
space io your columns for this article.
The last article I forwarded the
Tribune for publication was chopped
into minoe-incat, its head and tail
thrown over the dump and portions
quoted to suit the Tribune's purpose.
A newspaper editor who is so unfair,
so lop-sided, who would take advantage of a man in that fashion, could
hardly be expected to rise above local
interests and political differences
wheu drafting a scheme for the representation of British Columbia. The
Tribune should learn to take its medicine and not squeal if its editors fire
is met oy fire when making comparisons or throwing rocks at other ridings. Thanking you iu snticipotion,
yours respeotfully,

L. Lennox's Address Caused
Extended Discussion.
The Sunday nftcrnoon meetings of
the Socialistic Educational Club aro
Increasing in interest and attendance
and the one held last Sunday afternoon wns one of the most laigely attended and interesting. The address
ot the day was given by G, L. Lennox
on Some Objections to Socialism. Tho
fact that ho had taken the platform
on a previous occasion in opposition
to the principles of tho society, lent
additional interest to the proceedings,
and it is not outside the mark to state
that the address was more thought-
provoking and better discussed, than
any address ever given before the
club. The speaker created considerable hostility amongst the subsequent
spenkers by the assertion that the
loaders uf the socialistic oausc wero of
the same school of thought as Robert
Ingcrsoll. He nlso endeavored to
mite the impression that thc present
disparity of conditions existing be-
tweon capital and labor, was largely
the result of thc Intemperance of the
people Itnov. n as the working classes.
lie also claimed that tho cause of
labor was entirely dependont upon
tho capitalist. Of course these sentiments found little favor with tho
members of tbe clubhand while credit-

ing the speaker with thc courage of
his convictions, they were not at nil
baokward in expressing tbemselves to
the contrary, in most emphatic terms.
The speaker claimed that the only
real remedy, for the evils which were
alllictiug sooiety, at the present time,
was the change of heart. The socialists, on the other hand, claimed,
proving by demonstration, lhat the
better way was a change of conditions
and environment.
A feature of the proceedings, was
the appearance at the meeting of Mr.
Beamish, the gentleman from Rossland, who has been doing six weeks
in."durance vile" in connection with
tbe recent labor troubles at Rossland.
Be was called upon for a speech and
was given a hearty and patient hearing. His address was unusually moderate, especially coming from a man
who has undergone the experiences he
has for the oause of labor. He claimed
no allegiance to any cause religions
or political, bnt claimed that the
principles of socialism appealed to
him as the application of the principles of the Christ of the New Testament.
Rev. Mr. Munroe was present and
complimented the club on its attachment to the teachings of the Great
Teacher and olalmed that the world
had no cause to be afraid of the principles of socialism, as long as they
were being promoted in the spirit
whioh characterised the prceedings of
the Nelson Socialistio Eduoational
club. He also congratulated the
members on tbe able and intelligent
manner in which they disuussed the
questions of the day and claimed that
if looal politics were discussed as intelligently and rationally,thore would
be less room for complaint than is tbe
