FOR PARLIAMENT.

The Society of Equity has a candidate
in the field in Strathcona.
Joseph Martin, K. C, has announced definitely that he will
accept the nomination of the Asiatic Exclusion League, as its candidate for Vaucouver in the federal
elections. The committee appointed to notify him waited on him
Wednesday afternoon and formally
offered him the nomination. Mr.
Martin told them that he was willing to accept, and that they might
publish it abroad that he was in
the fight to stay. He said he had
only awaited the announcement of

With resounding cheers, G. H. Cowan
K. C, Wednesday night was unanimously selected as the Conservative
candidate for Vancouver in the approaching federal elections. Mr. Cowan
was chosen on the first ballot, receiving
79 out of the total 147 votes of the convention. The others put in nomination I the elections before giving his re-
were C. E. Tisdall and C. M. Wood- p]y) but that haviug been settled he
worth. Mr. Tisdall received 58 votes wouW into the fight heart and
and Mr.   Woodworth 10.   Mr.  Tisdall I       ..,-�����,,
.,..,..        ,   ..       t soul in   behalf  of   the exclusion,
promptly moved that the  selection ot
Mr. Cowan be made unanimous, a
motion seconded by Mr. Tisdall's proposer, H. H. Watson, and endorsed
by 1 he whole convention rising to their
feet and cheering for the chosen candidate. The most harmonious spirit
prevailed, those who had opposed Mi.
Cowan's nomination throwing aside all
bias, and shouting their determination
to support him.
Mr. Cowan received a royal reception on entering the convention hall
afterwards, and rousing cheers were
also given for Mr. Tisdall and Wood-
worth. There was not a discordant
note in the whole convention. On
every side was heard the determination
to rally round the candidate and carry
him to victory. There was a full
attendance of 147 delegates, with some
35 alternates, and keen interest was
in the progress of the convention.
Mr. G. H. Barnard, president of the
Conservative association of the province, and also of the Victoria body, was
nominated last Wednesday evening as
Conservative candidate for that constituency at the approaching Dominion
elections. The convention was a most
representative one, and the Institute
hall was packed to the doors with an
enthusiastic crowd. Without any preliminaries Mr. G. H. Barnard and Mr.
W. Bcckwith, who opposed Hon. W.
Templeman at the last election, were
placed in nomination. While speeches
were delivered by Mr. Martin Burrell,
Premier McBride and others, the ballots
were counted, and resulted as follows:
Barnard 423; Beckwith 127.
On motion of Mr. Beckwith, the nomination was made unanimous.

Stage  Accident.
That half a bozen persons were
not killed in the runaway of a
stage last Wednesday at Princeton
is a miracle. The stage was returning to that town from Hedley,
when the horses took fright on a
long hill. At a turn at the foot of
the hill the rig was overturned and
all were thrown into the ditch.
Not only the rig containing the
load of nine come to' grief, but
they ran down a cart in which were
Hughie Campbell and Angus La-
mont, breaking their cart to pieces
and throwing them under the
horses' feet. How these two escaped death was a marvel. Tne
large rig upset on a pile of rocks by
the roadside, but fortunately the
double-tree parted from the tongue
and let the horses loose, or those
under the rig would have been
ground to pieces.
The most seriously injured of the
men in the stage was Robert Stevenson, who is seventy years of age,
and one of the best known of all
British Columbia pioneers. He
had his shoulder dislocated, and
was severely bruised. For a longtime after the fall he was unconscious and his friends are fearful of
his ultimate recovery.

The Saturday Sunset has this week
been in receipt of two packages of apples from Lower Nicola and Quiichena
in the Nicola Valley. These two points
are about twenty miles apart, one at
the head of the valley and the other
about twenty miles lower down. Mr.
R. M. Woodward of Lower Nicola sent
a package of Yellow Transparents and
Jos. Guichon of Quiichena sent a mixed
package of early apples. -The fruit
furnishes another proof of the possibilities of the Nicola Valley for apple
culture and demonstrates its capacity
from end to end. The apples from Mr.
Woodward were grown on a five-year-
old tree and had all the flavor, firmness
and texture that could be desired.
Those from Mr. Guichon are beautifully
colored, fine flavored and in every respect perfect fruit It is only a matter
of a few years until the Nicola Valley
will be as famous for itVfruit as it has
been for its cattle, or now is for it's
coal. There are thousands of acres of
land highly adapted for fruit raising
which are today devoted to pasture
hay and grain crops or which are being
held in almost total idleness by the Indians. In time and at no great distance
all these splendid lands must come
under the sway of the irrigation ditch
and the intensive farming methods of
small holders who will make ten acres
as productive as fifty are on the prairies-

During the past week many and varied rumors concerning the capture of
the Midway murderers have circulated
through the daily press.
Beyond the fact that posses are still
on the hunt there is nothing to those
reports.
Here on the grounds, 'those who are
familiar with the situation have sifted
things down, and it is their opinion that
when the highwaymen are caught and

will happen, it will be found that they

first deeds of violence were committed.

A few Sundays ago Clifford Sif
ton was attending the Methodist
church in Ottawa. During the sermon the minister leaned over the
pulpit, and looking in the direction of Mr. Sifton said something
in an unusually impressive manner.
Clifford who is rather deaf, turned
to his neighbor and asked what it
was that the minister was saying,
"The vilest sinner may return,"
was the reply. "Return nothing!''
said Sifton, as he picked up his hat
and walked out of the church.

chump?"���Greenwood Ledge.
When a man has an excuse for

Just about the time a man thinks
he is "it" somebody comes along
and slips an "n" in front of it.
Women seldom mean it when
they kiss each other���the average

When some women clean house
they sweep the dust from the carpet onto the furniture and then
brush it from the furniture onto
the carpet again.

At an early hour on Sunday
morning Bro. Phillip Surel, who
has for a number of years resided
with the clergy at St. Louis Presbytery, adjoining the cnurch of the
Sacred Heart, Kamloops, passed
away at the ripe age of 90 years,60
of which were spent in this
province.
The following is reported to have
been found on the wall of a deserted
