TRULY   REMARKABLE.
The Chamber of Mines has begun its
active career. The following circular
letter has been princed and is being
Bent all over the mining section
of Southern British Columbia :
Kossland, B. 0., Nov. 15, 1900.
The mining industry in the various
mining districts of Southern British
Columbia has assumed such large proportions that It has been felt by many
of those interested, that some concerted effort should be made to bring
these various districts and their development to the notice of the principal financial centres of Great Britain,
Continental Europe, the United
States and Canada, with a view of interesting capital in their development. The great need of all mining
districts is the employment of uapital
in a large way, and this is especially
true in Southern British Columbia,
where to properly develop the miues
large capital is absolutely essential.
To induce capitalists to invest in
mines, their attention must be directed to them, and correct and reliable
information must be put before them,
from time to time,in regard to the development goliig on in the mines���the
tonnage produced, shipped and treated, the smelters erected or In course
of erection, nnd generally such information aB will induce men owning or
controlling capital to make investigation into the matters laid before
them.

Poor Deluded Irishman Thinks
of the Wicked English.
New York, Nov. 1��.���Among the
American scouts und Irish cavalrymen
just returned to this country after
service in the Boer army are Private
T. A. Kelford, of Ireland, and J. N.
King of California, better known as
"Dynamite Dick."
"We are all members," said Kelford, "of tho Irish brigade, which
was commanded by an American, Col.
'Jonhny' Blake, formerly of the Sixth
L'nited. States oavalry, and a West
Point graudate. This war is not near
over, notwithstanding reports to the
contrary. Bead the reported losses of
the English, which they say in their
dispatches are duo to 'enteric' fever.
It is not the enteric fever, or any other kind of enteric affliction that is doing the work. It is Mauser bullets
and nothing else.
"We were in the field from October
II, 1809, to the 2nd day of last month
then wc sailed from Lorenzo Marques
for Trieste, ell route to America. Wc
were at Spiohkop, Colonso, the siege
of Ladysmith.Modderspitiit nnd many
other engagements. As regards marks
manship. tlie Boers can give the English cards and spades and still beat
them with their eyes shut. During a
light on October III), .100 Johannesburg
policemen fought 1,800 entrenched
Knglish.captured their works with ],-
178 men and killed tho rest. This
gives an idea of how the Boer can
shoot.
"It sounds strange, but it is true���I
never saw a Union Jack or a regimental Hag during all the war. The
only flag the British ever showed was
a white one, nnd I never heard of u
white Union Jack.
"Whon the poor, old president left
for Europe, General Botha, in his order to his men announcing the depar
ture, said:
" 'Now that the poor old man iB
safe, let the lighting begin.' This
was the inauguration of guerilla warfare.
"The English ollieers are a queer
set. French is the best officer of the
lot. Buller is the bulldog of tbe
crowd. He has no feeling for his
men. On one occasion a detachment
of troops in his command refused to
storm a Boer stronghold, to face
which was certain death.
"In his anger Buller turned a battery of artillery on them and seventy-
three of them were killed."
"Dynamite Dick" King said the
scouts bad an experience similar to
the Irishmen in most caees, one of
their duties having been to dynamite
the railways. HiB participation iu
this duty, he said, accounted for his
sobriquet. He suid that the detachment was discourteously treated by
tho authorities at Lorenzo Marques,
tho Portuguese having imprisoned
them for six days on a troopship before allowing them to board tho Austrian Lloyd steamship Styra,on which
they sailed for Trieste.
How the Big Constituency is
Divided up for Polling
Purposes.
Nominations Made Today Before Returning Officer In
Revelstoke.
New York, Nov. lit.���Two gigantic
railroad deals involving tlie Northern
Pacific,Great Northern and Union Pacific on the one hand, and the Atchison and Southern Pacific systems on
the other, have just completed and
will shortly be announced. This statement is officially mado by ono of the
highest executive officers of the North
em Pacific Company, who admits his
company is about to pass under the
control of the Great Northern, according to the long cherished plan of J. J.
Hill of tlie latter road.
Mr. Hill is acting in close harmony
with J. Pierport Morgan, who _s the
chief factor in tlio management of tho
Northern Pacific,and it is for the purpose of putting through the big combination that tho Northern Pacific
voting trust has been dissolved.
There is to no consolidation or lease
of one property to another, for Messrs.
Hill and Morgan recognize that the
laws of certain Western states would
not permit of such a thing.
Mr. Morgan and Mr. Hill, acting
with the Deutsche Bank of Berlin,
which always has been a large owner
of Northern Pacific stock and has recently greatly added to its holdings of
Northern Pacific shares, until they
now have a majority ill the great
pool. This is to be turned over to the
Great Northern, giving the latter
control of itB rival. The Great Northern, It Is believed, will pay for this
huge block of Northern Pacific stock
by the Issue of new Great Northern
combination stock or by means of a
new security yet to be determined.
The dissolution of the Northern Pacific voting trust, which becomes
effective January 1 next, instead of a
year later, as originally proposed, will
permit the distribution of the stock
of the company as above proposed and
enable James J. Hill to taku control
of the propetrty.
Mr. Hill and several of his friends
will enter the directorate of the Northern Pacific, some of Mr. Morgan's associates In the Northern Pacific will
be made directors of the Great Northern, and Union Pacific interests will
also have representatives on tlie boards
of the other two Northern railroads.
It is in furtherance of this eollossal
Ideal that Mr. Hill has decided to relinquish the presidency of tho Great
Northern to his son, Samuel Hill, who
is now general manager of the company. Mr. Hill will remain chairman
of tho board of directors.
and that a member of the Opposition
representing a district from Hritish
Columbia eould apparently accomplish as much as ono in the Government side."

Leading Financiers of Canada Do Not
Altogether Like it.
The annual general meeting of the
Canadian Bankers' Association was
hold in Toronto last Friday, Mr.
Clouston, general manager of the
Bank of Montreal, presiding. In tlie
course of his address he referred to
the numerous evidences of expansion
of trade and commerce ill Canada, as
shown by the growtli of the note circulation and liank deposits,aud by the
immense development of foreign
trado.
Referring to tho proposed establishment of a mint, he expressed the
opinion that decision to do so had
been arrived at without due consideration. He feared it would lead to
some disturbance of our currency sys
tern. The use of gold instead of notes
as daily currency would cause heavy
loss by abrasion, and was not appreciated generally. On the other hand,
bankers were only allowed to hold
gold to the extent of 00 per cent, of
thoir cash reserves, the remainder being required to he in Dominion notes.
If hanks, on the other hand, exported gold, which they would doubtless
be driven to do, they would be subject
to considerube Iobb on exchange.
There was some profit in minting silver, but this cume to the Dominion
Government from England,in any case
amounting to 870,1100 yearly. Minting of gold entailed an actual luss.
Mr. Clouston concluded by saying:
"The estabishment of an assay office
iu British Columbia is not, perhaps,
open to tho objections 1 have urged
against a mint, but 1 deem it my duty
to record my conviction that the coinage of gold in Canada in our present
iiu u.ii.ct.uicc.-, is undesirable, because:
(1) The very basis uf banking and
currency system is thereby  disturbed;
(2) The coin will not circulate, and
neither demand nor occasion for it ex.
ists; (S) It cannot be retained by
banks, und must either be exported
at a loss or demonetized; (41 It involves loss to the Government; (5) It
tends to displace uud disorganize the
currency system, which is at present
safo, stable and peculiarly adapted to
the needs of our commerce; (0) It
opens the door to that incalculable
mischief, free coinugo of Bilver. "
Mr. Clouston closed hy commenting
on the evidence of prosperity found
throughout Canada, and the splendid
spectacle shown of Imperial unity last
year, by the action of the colonies
during the war.
Byron E. Walker echoed the remarks of Mr. Clouston on the subject
of the mint.

REEVE GENERAL MANAGER.
Promotion   to   the   Canadian    Grand
Trunk.
Montreal, Nov. 111.���Official announcement was made Saturday afternoon by Sir Rivers Wilson, president
of the Grand Trunk railroad syBtem,
that Georeg 11. Reeve, formerly traffic
nianagei, had been appointed general
manager of the system, to succeed
Charles M. Hayes.who is going to San
Francisco as president of the Southern Pacific. Mr. Reeves is on his wny
to Montreal now to confer with the
chief executive of the compnay.
It is said President Wilson was governed in his selection by the recommendation made a week ago at New
York by Mr. Hayes. From sonii-olll-
cial sources   it   is   learned that F. II.
McGuigan, general superintendent of electors of that district anil his efforts

The severe storm ivhich opened upon Nelson and vicinity, Friday night
with a heavy snow storm has now-
grown into a sharp, cold, sweeping
wind, but tlio barometer this afternoon indicated that fair and good
weather is soon in store for this district. The amount of damage done Is
not yet known but it is believed to be
cousideiable. The gieatest danger
during the storm was on Lake Kootenay. The Moylo, while coming from
Kootenay Landing Saturday night
was caught on the rocks and escaped
after two holes had been knocked in
her hull. She Is now at the ship yards
but will resume her run ul .1 o'clock
tomorrow morning. Tho new steamer
Kaslo was forced upon a sand bar
near Redman's Point on Saturday
night, and did not get to Kaslo until
sometime ibis morning. It Is said
that tho damage done to her was
slight. The Nelson tried to haul her
into navigable   water   but failed, and
it cannot be ascertained hen just how
shu was freed.
All day yesterday and today a
heavy wind prevailed over Nelson.
The main damage done by it was the
blowing down of telegraph, telephone
and electric light wires. When the
electric current was turned on Inst
night, many of the streets and dwell
ings were left in darkness. A number of signs were blown down and
other Blight damage was done.

Greenwood, B. C., Nov. 10.���Application will be made at the next session of the Provincial Legislature for
a private bill to incorporate a.company to build a standard guage railway from a point due Bouth of Kamloops, on the mainline of the Canadian Pncific railway, at or near the
junction of the Coldwater and Nicola
Rivers down through the Similkameen country, east to Greenwood and
southeast to Grand Forks. The application is in tho hands of Wilson _.
Benkler, solicitors of Vancouver, B. C.
Tho names of the promoters are not
given out, but by some they are believed to be the same parties interested in the old Vancouver, Victoria ft.
Eastern Railway charter, as the route
proposed in nearly similar to that
mentioned in the first application
made for the V., V. & E. road.
In detail the route proposed is as
follows: Starting from a point at or
near the junction of the Coldwater
and Nicola river, thence following
the Coldwater river up stream a distance of 22 miles, turning easterly
through a natural pass from the_Cold-
water river to the divide to the west
fork of the Otter river, thence down
the Otter river to the main river, following the same to its junction with
the Tullnmeou river to Otter flat.
The Tullaineen river Is then followed
to its junction with the Similkameen
river at Princeton.
An alternative route is provided
from the junction of the Coldwate
and Nicola rivers to Nicola Lake, then
along tho south shore of the lake Bto
Quilchena creek to the divide of Ono
Mile,or us it is more commonly known
Graveyard creek, and following the
valley of this last creek into Princeton. From Princeton the valley of
the Slniilkamcen will be taken, passing Similkameen City, Olulla and
Keremeos to a point west of Osoyoos
Lake, thence turning easterly to Osoyoos river and crossing the same north
of the lake.and continuing in an easterly direction to the divide of Roou
creek,thenoe down one of Its tributaries to the valley of the main Kettle
river, which is followed to Midway.
From Midway the valley of the Boundary creek is entered and followed up
to Greenwood. From this city a south

Spokane, Nov, 10.���Marshall V,
Adams, a pioneer of Kaslo, B.C., dl.d

Adams, was a well known man in
Nelson, Knslo, and Sandon. lie went
to Kaslo iu the early days of the Sloean boom and located at the Kootsaay
Lako town, where he spent the last
few years of his life. For some tlmo
the Into Mr. Adams occupied the position of chief of the Kaslo police. He
was adapted physically for the office,
as he was a man six feet in height
nnd broad proportionately. He was
the owner of the Iceland Hotel on
Front Street, Kaslo, and his lesth

NELSON'S   PRIDE.
It Is not exactly good weather for
angling but there Is no saying how
fai the enthusiasm of some of Isaac
Walton's disciples might lead them,so
for their benefit it might be pointed
out that an alteration in the fisheries
regulations allows them to dump tront
into their baskets .until November
30th.
The press of British Columbia 1b
represented by 73 newspapers and periodicals, and this nnmber is being almost daily added to. There are 14
daily, 10-semiTWeekly, 45 .weekly and
six monthly newspapers, and It is admitted that the newspapers of the
l'rovince are up-to-rdate in,every particular.
The plurality of the popular vote
secured by President McKinley at the
recent election is the greatest ever
given a Presidentof the United States.
It exceeds that of Grant In , 1872, np
to the present year the greatest on
record, by 83,208 votes. MoKinley's
pluiality over Bryan is 845,011. This
estimate will be increased rather than
lowered.
There is no greater bully in the
Kootenays than Mr. John Houston
and like all bullies he whines under
punishment. It appears, from a paragraph in his own paper, that he is
being made the object of "denunciation and abuse." Men who were his
friends, because they believed he could
be grateful for benefits conferred and
sincere in the devotion he professed,
have discovered how unscrupulous and
selfish his whole course has been, and
on every side lie is being reproached.
Mr. Houston cannot stand this, and
he alternately raves and whines in
consequence. He pleads this morning
that he "has not offensively paraded
his views, has not been on the public platform urging men to accept his
opinions, and is not consigning to a
political hades the men who differ
with him on political questions."
This is very largely true to the ear.
He has not heen on public platforms
for the reason that he does not possess tho manliness to openly face the
men ho traduces, lie prefers to do
this through his papers, at street corners, and in alleyways. There is
scarcely a respectable citizen of Nelson on whom he has not poured columns of abuse through his newspaper,
and whom he has not privately villi-
fled and slandered. To have an opinion different from Mr. Houton'n, or to
refuse to follow where ho chose to
lead, was sufficient to provoke a perfect torrent of his choice vituperation.
No one who has presumd to cross his
path haB been suffered to escape. To
interfere by word or act with any of
his plans for his own aggrandisement
was a crime so great that decency
was not regarded in dealing with the
offender. Even the churches have not
escaped, and in pure wantonness the
moral and religious sentiment, of the
commnnity has been repeatedly insulted, "and with characteristic coarseness. When a remonstrance 'against
his abuse cannot be overwhelmed with
further, abuse, the public are entertained with his whines.
Men who differ with him on political questions are not 'consigned to a
political kades, he says. He consigns
to hades, every man who differs from
him on any question. But just now
those who have political views of any
sort are tolerably safe, for it is impossible to, tell what Mr. Houston's
own views ure,and there is little dan
ger in running counter to them. He
attended a Conservative convention
and nominated the Conservative candidate, and then returned to his paper to support the caudidnte of the
Liberals. The Labor Unions, on the
free exercise of their rights, also put
a candidate iu the field, und Mr.
Houston has since employed u great
part of his time in scolding tlio Labor
party one day and flirting with it tho
next. Ho is Conservative, or Liberal,
or Labor, just as the chances of oach
seem uppermost. In Ins desperate eag
ernoss to be on the winning sideband
to reap whatever advantage there may
be in it, he is all things to all parties
ana amazingly careful to bo otfensivo
to none. Ilo is right, therefore, in
saying that ho ia not as vulgar and
domineering as usual in differing
from the political views of others. He
does not differ at all, but swallows all
of them. His feelings are lacerated,
however, in learning that many of
those who believed in him are expressing their contempt for his present course,and as ho thinks it dangerous to break out in abuse he whines.
What a man to honor, to be sure!
Nelson should be proud of its Mayor
and of its Legislative member.
The police have acted none, too
promptly in endeavoring to put a stop
to the practice of youngsters using
the sidewalks as places to indulge in
their favorite pastime of coasting.
Already several narrow escapes from
injury to pedestrians have ocurred. If
the boys could wait until the roads
are covered with snow a street, might
be set aside for them but they must
leave the sidewalks alone.
The storm that is at present playing
havoc with the shipping interests of
Kootenay Lake and the tempers of
Nelson's citizens has come all tne way
from the Atlantic coast, The Miner's
dispatches from day to day having
told of its vagaries for the past ten
days. In all its travels, however, It
apparently did not strike a spot that
it liked as well as Kootenay, If its
prolonged stay here can be taken as a
criterion,-

"THE WHITE DEATH."
A Frozen Fog of Which   Indians  Are
More Afraid Than of Rattlesnakes.
' Of all the natural phenomena peculiar to the Rocky Mountain region
none Is more strange or terrible than
the mysteriouB storm known to the
Indians as "the white death." Scientific men have never yet had an opportunity of investigating it, because
it comes at the most unexpected times
aud may keep away from a certain
locality for years. Well-road men
who havo been through it say that it
is really a frozen fog. But where the
fog comes from is more than any one
can say. This phenomenon occurs
most fiequently in tho northern part
of Colorado, lu Wyoming, and occasionally in Montana.
About two years ago a party of
three women and two men were crossing North Park in a wagon in the
month of February. Tho air was
bitterly cold, but dry as a bone and
motionless. The sun shone with almost startling brilliancy. As the five
people drove along over the crisp
snow they did not experience the least
cold, but really felt moat comfortable,
anil rather enjoyed tho trip. Mountain
peaks .10 miles away could be seen as
distinctly as the pine trees by the
roadside.
Suddenly one of the women put her
hand up to her face and remarked that
something had stung her. Then other
members of the party did the same
thing, although not a sign of an insect could be seen. AU marvelled
greatly at this. A moment later they
noticed that the distant mountains
were disappearing behind a cloud of
mist. Mist iu Colorado iu January !
Surely there must be some remarkable mistake, But there was no mistake, because within HI minutes a
gentle wind began to blow, and tho
air became filled with fino particles
of something that scintillated like
diamond (lust in tho sunshine. Still
tho people drove on until they came
to a cabin whoro a man signaled to
them to stop. With his head tied up
in a bundle of mufflers, he rushed out
and handed the driver a piece of paper, on which was written: "Come
into tne house quick or this storm
will kill all of you. Don't talk out-
Bide here."
Of course uo time was lost In getting under cover and putting the
hor.-ies in tho stables. Hut they were
a little late, for in less than nn hour
the whole party was sick with violent coughs and fever. Before the
noxt morning ono of the women died
with all the symptoms of pneumonia.
The others were violently ill of it,but
managed to pull through aftor long
sickness.
"I seen you people driving along
the road long before you got to my
house, and knowed you didn't know
what you were drivin' through," said
the man, as soon as the surviving
members of the party were able to
talk. "Thnt stuff ye seen in the air
is small pieces of ice froze so cold it
goes down clear into your lungs without melting. If any man stayed out a
few hours without his head covered
up he would be sure to die. One winter about eight years ago it cleaned
out a whole Indian tribe across the
Wyoming line. They are more afraid
of it than they are of rattlesnakes.
That's the reason they call it the
'white death.'"���Will Sparks, in
Alnslce's.

THE SENSE  OF SMELL.
Among savage peoples it Is a common occurrence to find the special
senses developed in an extraordinary
degvee, for the reason that their subsistence and safety from attack depends upon these organs. The American Indian is, or was, a notable example of this.sight and hearing being
trained to the pitch of excellence almost incredible to civilized people.
Even the sense of smell shared in the
general advancement in excellence.
Quite recently a most extraordinary
case was cited by Dr. Brett in the
German National Druggist of a friend
of his in whom the sense of smell as-
Bumud almost preternatural intensity.
This gentleman (with his eyes securely banilaged) could detect the
presence of persons with whom he
was acquainted tho instant they entered the room, and at a distance of
several paces, hy their personal odor,
and would call them by name withuot
once making a mistake. The sense of
smell in him appeared to be equally
as keen as in the bloodhound and is
one of the most unique Instances of
the kind on record. According to his
statement very family possesses a distinctive odor which varies In intensity so much that he 1b abio to detect
the different members of the samo
family by the difference in the degree
of pungency of the odor.

MR, MACNEILL'S REASONS.
His Letter to the Electors When Dropping Out of the Field.
Mr. A.   H.   MaeNeill   has   written
the following letter:
To the Electors of Yale-Cariboo:
It is with regret that I find myself
unable to give that time to the conduct of the present campaign that its
Importance demands. Since I was
nominated matters have arisen in connection with my professional practice
that require my attention to such an
extent as to make it impossible for
me to viBit the different parts of the
district as I desired and originally
intended.
Having conferred with the executive of the Yale-Cariboo Association
and stated my position to them.it was
agreed that I can honorably, and
while retaining the confidence of the
Liberal-Conservative party, withdraw
from the campaign. I therefore asked the exocutive,after conferring with
as many of the local associations as
time would permit, to name a candidate In my place, and I am happy to
Inform you that the Yale-Cariboo executive have chosen John McKane ot
Rossland as their candidate to represent the party at the election to be
held on the (ith of December next.
I have known Mr. McKane for more
than is years and feel that he is well
qualified in every respect to be your
representative. From his prominent
connection with tbe mining industry
he is particularly well fitted to represent this riding and to call attention
to its many needs. I hope the friends
who have so loyally supported me in
this cause will give the same support
to Mr. McKane, and I can assure them
they will never have cause to regret
it. Thanking my friends for the
hearty support they have given me, I
remain, yours sincerely,
A. H. MACNEILL.

CURLERS ARE   ANXIOUS.
Want the Tramway Company to Fix
Up the Rink.
The cold spell has had its effect up
on the curlers and skaters. Tbe former are already moving and this
morning Frank Tamblyn was after
the Tramway Co. to see what was to
be dono with the rink at the head of
Stanley Street. In its present condition, the curlers say, the rink will
not be in as good condition as last
year or the year before. The roof
leaks and before good ice can be made
and kept m good condition this defect
must lee- remedied. Curlers cannot
use ice that water is constantly dripping upon, as such a condition tends
to make lumps and rough spots wherever the water drips. They have determined therefore to prevail upon
the Tramway Co. to fix the rink np
at once and also to lose no time in
preparing the bottom. With everything Unreadiness ice eould have been
made during the present cold spell,
and if cold weather continues for a
week the curlers could have been enjoying themselves tne latter part of
thiB week. If the Tramway Co. officials would stand high with the curlers thpy should move at once.
PUNISHMENT   OF PRISONERS.
Ministers Discussing What They Will
Do With Important Prisoners.
Paris, Nov. 19.���The following advices have been r.colv.d^from Pekin,
dated November 17, M. Plchon,
(French Minister in Pekin), visited
Li Hung Chang, who handed to him
Imperial decrees depriving Prince
Tuan and Prince Chuang of their
titles of nobility and directing that
they be imprisoned at Mukden until
death. The decrees assert, that Prince
Ying has already been degraded and
imprisoned that Prince Lien has been
ordered not to leave his palace:.that
liul.ee |,.u, ;UTI| Vi,,- Niei],president of
Consorate, and others.have been degraded and that Yu Hslen has heen
killed. Another decree says it la impossible to arrest General Lung Fu
Ilsiang at present because he is in
possession of the troops bnt that he
will be punished later.
London, Nov. 19.���Dr. Morrison,
writing to The Times from Pekln, under date of November IS, says: "The
foreign envoys have re-opened the discussion of the death penalty .for the
Princes and other high officials It is
evident that the Ministers are weak
enlng as as they have reduced their
proposal from exocution to the severest punishment provided by Chlaese
law, forgetting that Princes lies beyond the reach of the common law.

Rossland Miner   Speaks  of  the
Ciensei vativc Candidate.
No paper in the country is giving
such warm support to Mr. Foley as is
the Rossland Miner, yet it has tbe
following to say regarding Mr. McKane:
The withdrawal of Mr. MacNcill,
the Conservative candidate, was not
unexpected, but the entrance of Mr.
John McKane into the political arena
comes as a surprise to everybody. His
first speech, at the meeting last night,
shows that Mr. McKano possesses
fighting qualities of a high order. His
dramatic denunciation of the Liberals
for their insincerity in the treatment
of the Labor party ought to convince
the leaders of the Liberal party of the
mistake they have made in forcing tbe
fighting in this district.
Mr. McKane is not a novice in politics. He has a wide acquaintence in
this district, and in view of the decision of Mr. MaeNeill to retire,the Conservative party made an excellent
choice, though we are strongly of the
opinion that a grave political blunder has been committed. Mr. McKane
has already unsuccessfully contested
this riding for the local legislature.
He is by education a banker, and is
acknowledged everywhere to be a gentleman of unblemished charatcer, of
exceptional business capacity and
ability. Though we differ from Mr.
McKane politically, yet following the
usual course of The Miner, we are free
to speak well of him as a citizen.
Possessed of a magnetic personality,
it 1b not improbable that Mr, McKane
will be able to infuse into his followers some of the buoyancy and hopefulness, so characteristic of himself.
Withal the splendid courage which
Mr. McKane has shown, In taking up
the fight, at the eleventh hour, and
his "no surrender" motto recall the
defiant words of the illustrious Celtic
ancestor, Roderick Dhu, who with his
back to the wall exclaimed:
"Comeone, corneal!, this rock shall fly
From its firm base as soon as I,"
Yet it is almost pathetic to see such
magnificent courage and such splendid talents sacrificed in a hopeless
sortie because ot an erroneous misconception of public duty in order to save
the party. The Conseravtive party
has blundered in not joining with
tbe Labor party In assisting Mr. Foley, but in the selection of Mr. McKane It has chosen the strongest
available candidate���and our only
regret Is that the sacrifice is not made
In a better cause. Mr. McKane is too
good a citizen to be hurled to political
destruction in this fashion.
SPREADS LIKE WILDFIRE.
When things are "the best" they
become "the best selling." Abraham
Hare, a leading druggist of Ilelle-
ville, O., writes: "Electric Hitters
are the best selling Hitters 1 have
handled in 20 years." You know
why'.' Most diseases begin in disorders
of stomach, liver, kidneys, bowels,
blood and nerves. Electric Hitters
tones up the stomach, regulates the
liver, kidneys and bowels, purifies
the blood, strengthening tlie nerves,
hence cures multitudes of maladies.
It builds up the entire system. Puts

German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. lioshec, a celebrated German Physiol an, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature removing, as it does, the cause of the affee
ton nnd leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ot years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Ilosche's German Syrup was introduced in tlie United States in 18HH,
