The letter which he wrote to tho

Wheu the letter was read by the

the Hishop paused for a time as if expecting someone to take up the offer,
On the following day the Hishop intimated that one or two clergymen

that hn has had 110 commnieatiou :if

A SUFFICIENT ISSUE.
It is rarely an election presents fewer
issues to perplex the people who make
members than does the one now in
progress in tbe Nelson Ridinp. Mr.
Hume, a member of the Government,
returns for reelection because of an
inadvertent transgression of the law.
No one attaches the least blame to
him on that account. He has heen a
Minister for about six months. Instead of rioiiiR anything for the Kootenay district, which he is presumed to
represent in the. Government, he has
done some things to injure it and has
permitted others. No one will say
that Mr. Hume is an enemy to the
Kootenay district, for be would take a
great deal of trouble,-we have no doubt,
to do it u service. Rut he does not
seem to know how to go about it. In
the matter of mineis' licenses, for example, he blundered most pitiablv
The fact is, the gentleman lacks the
knowledge.experience, and training to
fit him tor a Minister. This is no
fault, of his. but rather his misfortune.
That, however, is but poor consolation tor his constituents, who are obliged to suffer because of his incapacity. ���*
It is not so much what Mr. Hume
himself does or fails to do. Even if
incompetent, his constituents would
be spaved much mischief through him,
for the reason that be is so sincerely
anxious to servo them Ho will blunder, of course, hut he will keep right
whenever he can. '1 lie gri-bi objection
to Mr. Hume is that he has been ami
will continue to be so weak that other
Ministers will use him for their own
purposes There is not an intelligent
man in Nelson, or in nil Knnteiurv,
who does not believe lhat bis voice and
judgment are absolutely under the
control of Attorney-General Martin.
The electors of the Nelson Riding do
not want a spineless representative.
However excellent a man Attorney-
General Martin may be. thev do not
care to vote for a person who has not
the firmness or independence to resent
his domination and stand on his own
bottom and maintain his own rights.
This Mr. Hume does not do, and his
nature renders it extremely nnlikely
that he ever will. He is a type of representatives who nre really the mot
danKerous in our popliticiaus, for they
lend themselves so readilv to the
schemes of the unscrupulous and designing.
Amiable and respectable, beyond
n doubt; but he is a man of negative qualities, and therefore unfit to
represent interests thnt require courage
and determination to uphold them.
Mr. Hume is too weak for a Minister:
What is more to the present purpose,
he is too weak for a representative of
Kootenay. That is issue enough for
this or any election.

interests of ihe Province would be seriously prejudiced, Mr. Home sees]
wiili the Attorney-General's eyes and
hears wilh the Attorney-General's
ears,and if returned again for the Nelson Riding he will le found helping
on this insane and mischievous warfare
on   the   Dominion,
On instructions from  the   Attorney-
General Mr  Hume introduced and carried through a Bill to exclude   Americans from ei gag.ng in placer mining in
Ibis Province.    That was another blow
at the general prosperity.  If successful
I in this.uo doubt, it will be followed by
nn act to exclude Americans from   our
quartz mines.The influence of such legislation cannot hut bo harmful.  British
Columbia   requites   above nil else  the
I speediest and fullest development  possible of its enormous mineral resources.
Partly to   curry   favor  with tbo mobs
\ of the Coast and partly   to  provoke  a
quarrel with tbe   Federal  authorities,
Mr. Hume wns ordered to initial's this
legislation   to retard   development and
drive a large portion of our best population out the Province, and   like   the
submissive colleague   he is ho obeyed.
British Columbia will realize before it
i is many months older that it can better
afford (o dispense with Attorney-General Martin than   to   keep him ; and if
the electors of this portion   of  Kootonay decide now to  dispense  with Mr
Hume, there will be  fewer regrets in
tbe end.

MISCHIEVOUS  AIMS.
In discussing a Railway Bill in the
House a few days ago, Attorney-General Martin made the somewhat snr-
p'rliing complaint that, by granting
Dominion charters for Provincial railways, the Parliament at Ottawa was
interfering too much in British Colombia affairs. He took the ground
that Parliament should not be allowed
to grant local charters, ns it was an
iiifriiigment ct the rights of the Province. To this singular doctrine Mr.
Hume, as in duty bound, would
doubtless say amen. If all the Provinces wore to make the snnin objection, and the objection should prevail,
the Federal Parliament would he debarred from having anything to do
with railways, which would be absurd and quite contrary to the meaning and intention of the constitution.
The whole tendency of Ministerial
policy and legislation has been to antagonize the Dominion. Evidently the
purpose is to get up a Provincial
Bights agitation in British Columbia,
similar iu character to that which
raged so violently in Manitoba several
years ago, aud out of which Attorney-
General Martin got his flrsr start as a
publ'O man. His nature is in sympathy with violence and tumult. He
is the stormy petrel of Western politics. To this end effort is being made
to discourage Federal railway legislation for this Froviucc, in   order to in-
A most worthy gentleman is Mr.
Hume, but quite too light for the
place.
There was a good deal of mystery in
connection with the proclamation announcing lhe date of the election. It
was uot posted until late ou the evening 01' Wednesday, and in the meantime the date was kept a profound secret. Did the Keturuing-Otficer hope
to bring off the election without the
peoplo knowing it?
Complaint is made that Mr. Farwell
has done nothing to promote the interests of Kootenay. Mr. Farwell bas
li'wer been given the opportunity.
Elect him and try him. and then
should the complaint be made good
turn him out. Mr Hume did have
the opportunity, and even his friends
have, to confess that   he made a failure

Alderman Ross Thompou, and General Warren yesterday afternoon whilst
out sleighing narrowly escaped a serious accident, says the Rosslaud Miner.
It. appears when passing the Red
Mountain Railway depot. Ross Thompson's thoroughbred took fright at some
cars which were being shunted ami
started off a terrific pace. At tho bend
of Washington street, tbe frantic
steed caused the slelgb.to collide with
a telegraph polo with the result that
both gentlemen were thrown from
their seats. The General received n
severe shaking, with injuries to his
back aud a bruised hand. All tbe powers of persuasion put forward by Ross
Thompson failed to induce the gen-
erul to re-enter the sleigh. Mr. Thompson held gallantly on to tbo reins when
the upset occurred and was dragged
a considerable distanoe, but beyond
being partially smothered by tho snow
wns little the worse for the adventure.

GENTLKMEN���The   soul   for   th s
Hiding hetng again   vacant by the re
situation of tho Hon. J.    Fred Hume,
at the earliest request   of u large number of tho eleotors of this constituency,
I offer myself as a candidate to   represent yon iu tbe Legislative   Assembly.
I advocated in my  last candidature
and still propose to support, the building of useful roads, trails, and bridges,
in tho District, and was pleased to see
last, year the  commencement  of some
public works of that  nature.    I regret
to find that   practically   all   suoh improvements     in     this     Riding   were
stopped upon   tho acceptance of  office
by tho Hon. Mr. Hume.  With regard to
public buildings, appropriations  were
made last, session tor additional School
accommodation,   aud n Laud Registry
Office   in   Nelson.    As to  tbo  former
the   sum voted has been   expended   in
a dilatory manner,greatly inconveniencing the Trustees, teaching staff and pn
pils.    As to the  latter no   attempt has
been made to supply the   grave  want.
It may be remarked that when in Opposition the Hon. Mr. Hinnestrenonsly
pointed out the   inconvenience of having to   register   all documents   affecting hind in  Victoria,   and   advocated
the building of the office iu Nelson.
I submit that the legislation already
passed during the pre-out sitting of
the Provincial House of Assembly is
ngainst the interest of our mining industry. The Alien Bill prohibiting
aliens from workiug in tho placer
mines of tbe Province is even now having a retarding effect on the development of our metalliferous mines. It is
interpreted as the introduction of, the
tbiu edge of the wedge, towards, prob-
hly next sessiou, introducing legislation to prohibit aliens from prospecting aud developing tho mineral resources of Kootenay. I may add that
tho miners of Kootenay view with
alarm auy radical changes in the mining laws as calculated to prevent the
introduction of capital, thereby contracting the field of labor.
The privilege formerly existing of a
free miner who had inadvertently al
lowed his license to lapse, being reinstated in bis rights upon the payment of a small fee, was heartily endorsed by ine; and the withdrawal of
this privilege by the Minister of Mines
was an arbitrary act which has already resulted in loss to miners, prospectors aud others, and is calculated
in the future to operate disastrously
to those interested in mining.
I am opposed to the hasty passage of
mining legislation without giving the
mining communities the opportunity
of considering suoh measures. Such
hasty procedure is unusual in this Province and detrimental to the best inter-
ests of our great mining industries.
I consider the parsimonious administration of pnblio affairs inaugurated
by the present government, is calculated to seriously endanger the efficeucy
of the civil service aud hamper the
transaction of public business.
I advocate a change iu tho mineral
act to compel all partners in u mining
claim to hear their sharetof the assessment work, or forfeit their interest.
I am iu favor of further extending
tho Publio School system, and placing
greater powers iu the hands of the
School Trustees in organized localities,
thereby increasing the efficiency of the
school.
While opposed to a largo portion of
the legislation Introduced by tho present Governmpnt, I am independent
and intend if eleuted to support in the
Legislative Assembly measures, no
matter by whom introduced, which are
for the benefit of the Province,und will
especially give my support to whatever may assist in developing and tend
towards the prosperity of tho Kootenay District. I wish to deal fairly
and openly by the electors and think it
right for me to add that I am a Conservative and if in tbe fnturo party
lines should he drawn, I will ho found
allied with the supporters of that
party.
Yours Faithfully,
A. ti. FARWELL.

With fingers long, pnrple veined and all
a-tremble the poet rained the lid uf the
letter box at tho foot of tbe stulrs.
He hud risen an hour hulore, had made
his toilet with oaro and had waited.
Hy and bj them came a ring lit the bell.
It was the postman's ring���twice.
Tho long lingers fumbled In the box,
they were withdrawn, and between them
dangled a letter.
The poet bowed his head to road. It was
addressed to him, In the upper left hand
corner was the card of tho great magazine
to whioh ho had sent three pooms the Saturday before.
The poot cronohod into the hall and
noiselessly, like a cut, mounted tho long
stairs. Up, up, up he clambered, even to
the roof, for thore beneuth the eaves ha
llV'ed.
lln lighted a candle, for the light was
dim. liu looked at the envelope again,
then laid it on the tolloring table.
Raising his hands to heaven, he cried
aloud in his agony: "Oh, merciful Heaven,
give me strength to bear the blow that la
about to descend upon my tired and aching head! This shall be the lust. Mo
longer can I llvo. Time after timo have
the written outbursts of a breaking heart
been returned to mo witli a note of regret, aud this Is but another such."
He allowed those long, thin fingers to
tear away the flap of the envelope. Ha
took out the letter. He read the few lines
and the blood stood still in his veins.
With a frightful shriek he sunk to tha
floor.
Later thoy found hlni tlajce. In his
hand was clutched a noto from the editor
of a great magazine.
Regrets?
Ha, hal They read these words:
"Pooms submitted accepted. Please find
cheek inclosed."
And beside the poet on the floor lay a
slip of paper representing $2.86.��� Detroit

,'' Then let tho laud go aod use tha lumber. ''
"No lumber there. Trees all out down
years ngo."
" How about fruit?"
"No fruit, either; all killed by grubs."
"You might turn the streams Into a
pond and raise carp for the market."
"Can't make a pond. Got no stream.
Oan't hardly get well water eveD."
"How is the well water?"
"Bad as kin bo."
"HumphI No soil, no fruit, no trees,
no streams, no water but bad water.
Well, my friend, the only way out that I
can see is for you to quit farming and
turn the place Into a summer resort."���
