MERRITT, B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1908.
$2 a Year.
LIBERAL   VICTORY
HAVE   MAJORITY   OF   ABOUT
FIFTY-TWO.
Hon. Wm. Templeman Defeated in Victoria.   West goes in favor of Conservatives.���B.C.  electlug
Three Conservatives.
With a majority of about fifty seats
the Laurier administration was returned to power at the polls on Monday. There are a number cl seats still
in doubt and several postpodedelections
but it is generally conceded that when
the next parliament convenes there will
ba a majority of between 50 and 55 on
the right side of the speaker. Monday's contest brought about a considerable reduction of Laurier's strength,
although not by any means what the
Conservatives and a vast number of
Liberals anticipated. While the maritime provinces created some disappointment by failing to return an increased
Conservative contingent, Ontario provided the surprise in slightly increasing
the Liberal strength. Aa the end of
1904 election the Liberals had 138 seats,
Conservatives 73,Independents 3,giving
the Liberals 65 of a majority, which
was increased to nearly 70 by the bye-
elections, out of a total representation
of 214 seats. The Liberal majority has
been reduced to about 50 in a house of
221. Laurier's majority stands at
present at 45. Conceeding him the five
remaining seats in Quebec, the Yukon
seat and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan,
as well as Comox-Atlin and Kootenay,
and also three more seats in Ontario,
and giving the Conservatives the four
remaining seats and Yale-Cariboo, the
Liberals will have a majority of 52.
The Conservativas wrested five seats
from the Liberals in Nova Scotia, but
lost two in Prince Edward Island and
three in New Brunswick, which leaves
the government the same as before
with a total of 27. The situation in
Quebec remains practically unchanged.
In Ontario the Liberals now have 37
seats and will probably get three of the
remaining seven which will increase
their representation from that province
by two. The entire west went against
the government. Manitoba returned
nine Conservatives where before there
were three, Saskatchewan increased the
opposition ranks by two, Alberta by
one and the four elections held in British Columbia went against the government, J. D. Taylor winning in Westminster, Cowan in Vancouver, Barnard
in Victoria and Hathornthaite in Nanaimo.
The inroads made on Laurier's
strength in British Columbia are highly gratifying to the Conservatives.
With four Liberal seats already lost, and
splendid prospects for Martin Burrell's
election in Yale-Cariboo, and a good
chance for Goodeve, ;the premier should
be sufficiently convinced that British
Columbia is not in sympathy with his
administration.
The defeat in Victoria of Hon. Wm.
Templeman, minister of inland revenue,
is regarded  as a splendid achievement
for the Conservative cause, and also the
election of G. II. Cowan in Vancouver
was most gratifying.
Following is a summary   of the returns in the  Dominion;
Con. Lid. Ind.
Ontario 41     37    1
Quebec 11     48     1

Rod and Gun for November.
i
Fine diversified reading- is the leadihg
feature of the November number of
"Rod and'Gun pju! | flfe>f ;r Spc/ts hi
Canada," published by W. J. Taylor,
at Woodstock, Out. The delights of
camping, canoeing, fishing, hunting and
mountaineering are dwelt upon in stories
which give the added touches of personal experiences to the pleasant pictures of enjoymen t each one presents.
Particularly notable are papers on "The
Deer of New Brunswick" by that veteran guide, Adam Moore; "Deer Farming
for Profit," a summary of inquiries on
this subject made by the United States
Government; and "Wild Rice Growing
in Nova Scotia." Everyone will enjoy
reading the stories, "Running the Rapids with an Amateur" by L. W. Bingay;
"My Experiences as a Bear Hunter" by
Dr. Henzel; How I missed a Moose
and Deer and shot a Wolf," by Jack
Miner; and the friendly challenge by
Mr. J. A. Shade, who believes, when
all points are taken into consideration,
that he has the finest moose head yet
taken out of New Brunswick. This
summary by no means includes the
whole of the wide field covered. Diversions being made into many paths each
one of which must appeal to many
readers. With the various departments,
the wealth of material included in this
number of the magazine is surprising
and includes contribution that must
appeal to all lovers of out door life.
RY.  STATION SITE
CONFERENCE   OF   MERRITT  CITIZENS WITH SUPERINTENDENT.
It is reported that Mr. W. W. B.
Mclnnes may yet sit in the House of
Commons for a western constituency,
the information being that overtures
have already been made to him by prominent Liberals in the Yukon that he
except the nomination there. While no
official statement regarding the matter
could be secured, it is understood, on
the authority of a prominent member
of the party in Vancouver that the report is true.
The election in the Yukon will not be
held till January so there yet remains
plenty of time for Mclnnes to conduct
a campaign in that constituency.
An Up-to-date Building will be Erected
Inside of Three Months at the
Forty Mile Post, so
says Supt. Miller.
A conference of business
men and W. O. Miller, superintendent of the C P.R. was
held at Merritt on Thursday
morning in connection with the
station site.
. For the present the station
will remain-behind G. B. Armstrong's Store, but"Mt.~ Miller
staged thatt within ninety dfiys
work would be started on a
station building to be placed at
the 40 mile-post.
Hon. Richard McBride and
Hon. W. J. Bowser will be in
Nicola Valley before the close
of the political campaign, and
will speak at Middlesboro and
Lower Nicola.
Martin Burrell, the Conservative Candidate will address
a meeting of the election of
Yale-Cariboo at Nicola on
Monday afternoon at 1.30 p.m.
and at Merritt 7.30 the same
evening.
Sloan by Acclamation.
William Sloan, Liberal, was declared
elected by acclamation on Wednesday
to represent the constituency of Comox-
Atlin, no other candidate being offered
in nomination.
The prevailing opinion is that the
constituency will now make a strong
bid for the British Columbia portfolio
rendered vacant by the defeat of Hon.
William Templeman in Victoria.
It has been officially announced that
the C. P. R. transcontinental express
service timetable will be altered on
November 1. Several weeks ago it was
stated thatin all probability the schedule
in effect all summer would be adhered
to throughout the winter months. Since
then conditions have arisen which render
it essential that some slight changes
be made in running times. It has
therefore been decided to change the
schedule of the four transcontinental
trains on Sunday, November 1.
The timetable for the Pacific division
is now in course of preparation at the
office of Mr. F. F. Busteed, general
superintendent at Vancouver, and it is
being rushed to completion.
For Selling Opium,
The first conviction on record in Vancouver for selling opium was registered
against Chan Shen.   He was sentenced

In a local school the other day, the
teacher asked the scholars to write a
sentence with the phrase, "bitter end"
in it. One scholar handed in the statement, "Russia was determined to fight
out the recent war to the bitter end.''
Another said the holidays had come all
to soon to their "bitter end," and so
forth. The sentence that took the cake
was that written by a bright ten-year-
old boy, who is responsible for the following: "Our bull pup chased Smith's
black cat across the back yard, and as
she was getting under the fence he
bitter end."
