London.Oct. 2.—The Times in an
editorial on the permanent incorporation of tbe first German home
fleet under Admiral Koester, recently announced in its despatches,
aays the expansion of the German
navy means no doubt that in any
serious naval conflict in which
Britain may hereafter be engaged
Germany desires to occupy a position in which she will be able to
throw her influence in either scale.
On the other hand, tbe expansion
of a naval force, as Captain Maban
has so well shown, is a correlative,
an almost inseparable correlative,
of commericial and colonial expansion.
German commerce has expanded
lately by leaps and bounds, and
her colonial interests are already
widespread. Any change in the
general balance of naval power
must be watched steadily and persistently.
"The balance of naval power in
Europe," the editorial concludes,
"is ohanging, and we are not to
changing our advantage, that is a
faot to be fairly and squarely faced
with the resolve that we shall not
be unprepared."

William Thomas, hoisting engi-

Wednesday night. While cleaning
the shaft his olothes caught in the
friction clutch and the set screw
mangled his right thigh frightfully. It was many minutes before he waB recovered as his cries
were mistaken by those outside to
arise from some other cause.
On being extrioated he was removed to tbe hospital but the injuries were too serious for reoovery
and he died from shock on the following day. His funeral, which
was well attended, the deceased being a very popular man, took place
from the St. George's church yesterday afternoon.

Ottawa, Oct.  2—A   delegation

What the Mines Are Doing Over the
District—Rossland   Doing
Very little has transpired in
mining circles during the week,
beyond the reiterated assertion
of Mr. T. G. Blackstock that bis
company, the War Eagle and Centre Star are confident in the success
of concentration and are therefore
prepared to spend large sums of
money upon its perfection as applied to the ores of his mines.
Tbe Elmore concentrator is still
huDg up through the vexatious
delay in the arrival of the Blake
crusher from San Franoisco, now
three weeks overdue.
Otherwise the mines are shipping
normally though rather under
than over the usual weekly 1
age, as lately maintained.

London, Oct. 2.—Russian correspondents of the Times says it is reported that Grand Duke Serge Al-
exandrovitch will shortly cease to
be Governor-General of Moscow,
where serious strikes have begun.
He was a hearty sympathizer
witb the policy associated with the
name of the secret police official
Subatoff, who has resigned because
of dissatisfaction In hifi her circles
over his inability to prevent his
proteges, the members of the so-
oalled "Independent Party," from
joining in the strike and in the
disorders in South Russia.
The general bolief in St. Petersburg is that the War Minister no
longer enjoys the Tsar's favor.
Phoenix, Oot. 3.—(Special.) —

The basis of all good government
is the proper conducting of ita oivil
service.   No matter how good   are
the the lawB laid down by the legislature, unless there is a civil service   properly   constituted   which
will carry out these things   as   intended these good lawB are of no
a fail and remain  a dead letter up
on the statute book, or worse still,
are  distorted   from their original
meaning.   Nothing is more   damnable than the   policy   which   declares   to   the   victor   belong   the
spoils.   In that polioy is the  root
of all evil.    Nothing is more hope
ful for   Canada   than   that   both
parties, not onljT in   this province,
but elsewhere,   have   signified   at
at least  an   academic opinion that
the civil service of Canada must be
reformed; that it   no longer   shall
ba the reward of politioal services;
that it no longer shall be ruled   by
mere nepotism; that it   no   longer
shall be governed by   rules which
inure rather to the benefit   of   the
up jtart politioal aspirant   than   to
the good and faithful government
servant.   The C03t of administration in this province is far  greater
than it is anywhere   else   in   the
whole Dominion of  Canada.     No
where is the  demand  for  reform
more pressing in this  regard  than
iu this proviuoe.   While it may be
admitted over so highly diversified
a province a3 this, so choked up by
mountains, as yet so little opened
up, so scattered in   its papulation,
so varied in its industry,   the   cost
of government would naturally be
more  than   in   an  easily   accessible spot such as   Manitoba,   yet
for all that it is far, far too  great.
It must be insisted upon, that   the
oivil service no longer be regarded

era and  unscrupulous   politicians.

lie of Rossland.    His speeches are
distorted  and he   is made to say
tilings which were  actually never

which, after all, is his best eulogy,
coming from such a source. This
may be   journalism,   but it looks   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
otherwise       to       the     thinkers.      At a Liberal convention held at
The       Liberal      candidate     has', <% o( Vancouver on  the 6th and
asked  that   this paper, a mining
and   local   journal,    should    put
before the public his views of  the
political situation.    This we have
done in this issue, and the columns
of this paper thus thrown  opeu to
the Liberals   have   been open to
present  to   the   public the views
of the   Conservative candidate.
It is   unfortunate iu any   city
where the only daily organ chooses
not only to take a side,   but to falsify   the   position   taken   by   the
other.    In  the   present campaign
the   Rossland   Miner,  professedly
Conservative, has   flopped to  the
Liberals.    If acting through conviction and not from petty spite, it
has every right to change its opinion,   but it   has no   right   iu  so
changing its  views  to  falsify the
views  which   it  has abandoned.
The  office of a newspaper, as we
take it, is to represent clearly the
issues before   the   public.    While
perfectly justified in  taking a side,
it should be careful to give every
justice to the other.    Iu  the present campaign every act of the Conservative candidate has been presented in a false light to the pub-

2. Government ownership, Dominion,

taken to safeguard the interests of the

north fork of Kettle river; with necessary
branch lines, feiriesand connections.
5. The enforcement of the act now in
force compelling the scaling of logs by
government scalers.
6. That sich legislation should be
enacted as will result in making the
lands included in the various dyking
aieas avai able for cultivation as quickly
as possible and secure prompt payments
of assessments when due.
7. That the government ahould keep
in touch with the conditions in connection with mining, protecting said industry against combines and trusts and if
necessary for the purpose build and
operate smelters and refine ies. No
radical change should be made in the
mining laws without full notice to all
parties interested, giving full opportunity
for d scussion and criticism.
8. Aa the province cai only advance
hy the settlement within its borders of
thrifty and prosperous citizens, and as
Orientals never become cit zens in any
proper sense of the word, we declare it
to be the dutv of the government to discourage Oriental immigration and employment by every means within its
power, and »e appeal to our fellow Liberals throughout the Dominion to aid us
in our efforts to protect ourselves against
the ruinous competition of men having a
standard of decency and comfort immensely below that of civilized peoples,
and who shirk every duty and obligation
of citizenship which the law will allow
them to escape.
9. The government ought to prevent
the waste and suffering caused by strikes
and lockouts, and an earnest effort ought
to be made to provide some means of
preventing such strikes and lockouts,
and we approve the adoption of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the province
stands in need of revision. Taxation
should bear upon privilege rather than
upon industry, and no addition should be
made to tbe debt of the province except
for pubfic works properly ehargeable to
11. The retaining of the resources of
the province as an asset for the benefit
of the people and taking effective measures to prevent the alienation of the public domain except for actual bo a fide
business or industrial purposes, putting
an end to the practice of speculating in
connection with the same.
12. Tbe construction and maintenance of roads throughout the province
to aid in the development of the mining
and agricultural districts.
The first plank of the above platform
refers to a subject which, though not a
live issue now, was so when the platform
was adopted. In this matter the rights
of the people have been 'substantially
secured by the efforts of a handful of
Liberal members who, holding the balance 0' power during the session of 1902,
compelled an unwilling administration
to pass the present Redistribution Act.
The executive of the British Columbia
Liberal Association desire to call your
attention to the following:
The province is on the eve of a general
election, and for the first time in its history the contest is to be conducted upon
party lines.
fithHerto contests in the province have
been carried on between aggregations
bound together rather by interest than
by principle, by private arrangement
rather than by public considerations. In
the past the dcininant influences in the
several governments of the province
have been Conservative. The Prior
Dunsmuir, Turner and previous governments have been almost entirely composed of Conservatives, supported in the*
house by Conservatives. The present
government, of which  the Honorable
Richard   McBride   is   premier,   is   the
natural successor in tradition and policy
that mischievous series of personal
governments which has made this prov-
ince.although the richest of any in natur
al res urces, the least prosperous in the
Dominion. With'our vast mineral and
other resources the progress of our development has been slow and entirely
unsatisfactory. Unwise legislation, principally in the interest of speculation, not
of industry, is responsible to a very large
extent for this condition of affairs. The
public assets, public franchises snd
monopolies, have been given away to
favorite persons ard corporations, instead of being utilized for the benefit of
the people at large, and this bus bee.
going on for so loDg a lin-e that the
province now finda itself compelled to
exact from industry that revenue which,
bad our affairs been wisely conducted,
could easily have been obtained from
our squandered heritage.
The last Conservative government,
owing to its maladministration of '.he
public affairs of (lie province, was,
through the efforts principally of a smal'
band of Liberals, dismissed from office
and accident and (he Introduction of
party lines lias placed another Conservative government in power, and has
placed at the bead of that government a
man who was not only an ardent supporter of past Conservative administrations, but was himself a member bf one
of them, and shared fuilj in the responsibility of an attempt on the part of
that government to give away to a railway corporation, in direct defiance of the
instructions of the legislature cs expressed by statute, two large blocks of
enormously valuable coal and oil lands
in Kootenay.
It is the aim of the Liberal parly lo
place in the field at the coming election
men pledged to remedy tho evils from
which we have so long Buffered.
Among the matters requiring immediate attention are the foil wing:
(a) By talcing eare that the staff of
officials shall not ba maintained beyond
the actual requirements of the service;
(b) by making good conduot and efficien
cy the conditions of tenure of office; (c)
fitness, not favoritism, to govern appointments.
(a) By keeping expenditure within
revenue, borrowing money if at all only
for works properly chargeable to capital;
(b) wise and provident administration ot
the natural riches of the province, so as
to bring into the treasury 1 hat revenue
which should bed rived from our great
and varied reEonrcff; wc declaie ou
convfetion that the proper t>x s, rents
and royalties can and ought to be.levied
and collected in such a way as lo encourage industry, and at the same time
provide sufficient revenue and enable
the government to repeal in whole or in
part certain taxes which now hamper
industry, arreBt development and create
dissatisfaction among the people, (o
fn this connection the taxation ot mines
will receive that consideration which the
importance of the mining industry to the
province demands. It is not claimed by
those engaged in mining that their property should be exempt from taxation,
but they do claim that the present system of levying taxes is unfair, and tends
to discourage the investment ot capital
and the employment of labor in mining
enterprise, thus not only retarding the
development of our mineral resources,
but also impeding the prosperity of the
mining community, and preventing the
enlargement of sources of revenue to the
province itself. The present system imposes a tax on wages as well as on profits, and should be readjusted so as to
bear upon profit only,
(a) We denounce absolutely the Conservative policy of land grants by way
of bonus to railways, and also the reservation of large tracts of land which has
has obtained in the past,
(b) We declare it to be our policy to
hold the public lands in trust for the
promotion of settlement and encouragement of industry, fn the case of agricultural lands we favor free homesteads
under conditions which shall effectually
secure the land to actual settlers,
(c) Full and exact information as to
all public lands fit for se.tlement should
be obtained by the government, and
made available at every government office for the information of the public.
(a) Recognizing the importance of
agriculture in the province, we are in favor of placi'g the agricultural department of the government on a thoroughly
practical and efficient basis.
(b) The bad management and inefficiency of the government have imposed
upon the owners of the dyked lands a
much heavier burden than they should
have been called upon to bear. Wo
would enact legislation making the lands
included in the various dyking areas
available for cultivation as quickly as
possible. This whole question calls for
prompt attention and settlement upon a
basis which shall be at once just to the
owners of these lands and lair to the taxpayers of the province as a whole.
(c) In the interest of agriculture in
what is commonly known as the dry
belt, the question of the proper utilization of the water supply Ior irrigation
purposes demands and must receive
prompt attention from the government.

Two prizes will be given at the Alhambra Bowlii.g alley every two weeki ior
the largest tcore made,
cash subsidies should be accompanied by a control of rates and
an option of purchase. The government was in treaty along these
lines with the Great Northern
which would open up 2000 miles of
road. The government would not
withhold charters to please a rival
railway. The Coast-Kootenay line
would be proceeded with at once.
(Applause.) If it did not begin
immediately its charter would be
given to a company that would
start work.
Defending Hon. R. McBride on
the East Kootenay question, Mr.
Goodeve pointed out that Smith
Curtis, the late member for Roasland had supported the premier in
his attack on that measure at the
end of the Prior administration.
This ti as a splendid testimonial to
his honesty.
The speaker deolared that the
McBride government would reduoe
expenditure. At tbe same time increased revenue could be raised by
taxing the railroads, great banks,
etc, doing business here, more
equitably. The timber lands would
no longer be exempted from taxation, especially those owned by the
Dominion family. A bill was already in preparation by the Finance Minister, to be submitted to
the house on assembling. No corporation had any strings on the
McBride government. (Applause).
The civil service also should be
reformed. It was costing 830,000
to $40,000 annually too much.
Furthermore the support from
the Dominion government ought to
be increased. British Columbia
was paying $14 por capita against
the $2 cf Ontario, as Mr. Maodon'
aid had pointed out.
Referring to the Asiatio immigration, the speaker scored the
Laurier policy of allowing the Chinese to come in under the old head
tax up to January 1. The McBride policy was to exclude the
Chinese. This was plainly shown
by the attitude of the Attorney
General towards the employment
of Chinese in his mines by James
Dunamuir. (Hear, hear.)
The government also intended to
go in for government ownership of
telephones, as a test -for the public
oontrol of public utilities.
With reference to the questions
of the Provincial Mining .Association, the government intended to
help tbe mining industry as much
as possible, judging eaoh question
on its merits.
This waB the policy of the government, and on this the speaker
confidently appealed to the electorate. The McBride government
would have a majority of six to
ten, and it was to Rossland's interests to have a government representative.
Muoh cheering greeted the end
of the address.
Bad Form

questions. So haa the Provincial
Mining Association. Now aekiog

Continued from fourth page.
The present lack of system of constructing and maintaining roads and
trails is productive of a serious waste of
public money, and in this connection
more can be done to open up new districts where roads are needed, and at
less cost than what has been done in the
past, under the wasteful and corrupt system which has been so long in vogue.
The Health Act should be amended so
as to meet the growing requirements of
unincorporated districts in respect of
sanitation and isolation, as to which no
adequate provision is now found upon
the statutes.
Regardless of all question of party
affiliation, the rights of the province under the constitution should be jealously
guarded, While, from the point of view
of Dominion politicp, we heartily Bup-
port the government r.ow in power at
Ottawa, we shall at the same time insist
most firmly upon the protection of 01 r
people by the exclusion of Oriental labor, and we shall also insist upon the
right of the province to make such provisions as it may see fit in all contracts,
grants and leases under provincial control. We shall also strenuously presx
upon the Dominion government a read-
uslment of our tinarcial relations, and
we claim the full enj yment of all rights

In conclusion, we rp,-.en! lo all patriotic voters in British i ohimbia to seize

Hon. A. S. Goodeve, Conservative, and J. A. Macdonald,
Liberal, Place Themselves on Record Before
the Public.
There was a well filled hall on
Monday evening to listen to the
speeches ol the contending candidates for politioal honors and those
of their friends. Tumultous cheering greeted the entry of the aspirants. The chair was taken by E.
D. Orde, who, on calling the meeting to order, said that Hon. C. H.
Mackintosh would open the ball;
he would be followed by A. H.
MaoNeill, an hour would then be
allowed J. A. Maodonald and A. S
Goodeve would then close the
The Hon. C. H. Mackintosh declared he wished to discuss public
questions, and then entered into a
question of alleged misrepresentations by the Rossland Miner, whioh
elioited clearly enough that the
speaker was considered by such
men as Smith CurtiB and Rupert
Bulmer a friend of labor. On this
ground the speaker appealed for a
fair hearing for the candidates, and
asked for the sympathies of the the
electorate to be given to A. S. Goodeve.
A. H. MaoNeill said he
had only time allowed to
refer to one question, and
the question to which he would devote himself was in his opinion the
pivotal one of the election. It was
the absolute necessity for a stable
government. Party government
would give responsibility. Now the
Liberals had some good men running, but the party was only good
in partB. Moreover they could not
hope to carry the eleotion. That
the Liberals were good only in parts
was proven by Smith Curtis, who
deolared that neither Joseph Martin nor W. Mclnnes ought to be in
the party. But both these men
were running as Liberals. Martin
might not be elected, but as he was
the strongest Liberal in Vancouver
if he were defeated what would become of the rest? And if the Liberals could not get a seat in Vancouver oould they hope to get a
majority over the provinoe? But
if Martin were elected he would be
leader and surely the province had
had enough of Martinism.
The speaker throughout hie
speech was much heckled.
J. A. Macdonald deprecated
the reference made to the strike
and had wished the oampaign to
be oonduoted upon the questions of
the day. He said he approved of
party government but attention
must be paid just the same to the
personal charaoter of the members.
Mr. MaoNeill had said the question of the day was that of stable
government. True, but that stable
government must be good not bad.
Elect the Liberals and a stable and
a good government would be had.
f Applause.)
Mr. MaoNeill deolared that the
Liberals could not win. The
speaker was in close touch aB pre
sident of the Kootenay' Liberal
Association, with twelve ridings
and of these certainly eight, possibly, nine or ten, would return
Liberals. The island was, he heard
as muoh disgusted with the present
government as the Kootenay.
The Liberals bad therefore a very
fair ohance of victory. The portfolio given to Mr. Goodeve, well
deserved  enough,   was  given   to
influence   the    election,   and   he
Bhould have refused it.
Tbe government waB yearly in
deficit. The resources of the provinoe were larger than those of any
other provinces. Properly applied
these assets would cover every extravagance, but they were given
The speaker then went into the
question of the ooal lands in East
Kootenay, scoring the government
and amplifying his point, connecting R. McBride, the Minister of
Mines, with the deal. Premier
McBride deolared he did not know
the value of the lands, worth millions aocording to Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, but was willing to
give them away. Suoh a man was
not fit to be premier. Mr. McBride afterwards joined the attack
upon this grant, made by Mr.
Smith Curtis and others, but recently coal prospectors, legitimately
staking claims, have been refused
licences. Mr. McBride will not
give them their rights. He will
not state bis position, but will give
private promises to grant licences
after the elections. He was afraid
of public opinion now and will be
afraid hereafter. The speaker deolared that his own position was
that a bona fide prospector was
entitled to bis licence, so were
grub stakers but syndicates, having
no real interests, should not be allowed licences. Borrowed names
oould not go.
Referring to the fiscal condition
of the provinoe the speaker animadverted upon the revenues raised
largely by taxing the mining industry, and the excess of the expenditures impairing the credit of
the province. It was absolutely
necessary to curtail expenditure
The vast acreage of improved lands
was only taxed $130,000. The
total tax upon personal property
including mills and factories
only amounted to $89,000, while
the mines struggling towards a dividend had to pay $141,000.
Conoluding Mr. Maodonald said
he had support from all sections of
the community. He represented
no one class. Organized labor supported him largely, yet its leaders
had not asked him if eleoted, to
support any particular measure.
They were sure of his general fairness. He could have no higher
compliment paid him.
As to compulsory arbitration,
Mr. Macdonald was distinctly in its
favor. Mr. Goodeve said he had
not made up his mind on the question, although a publio man.
Strikes affected not only the
employer and the employe, but the
whole community. Some method
had to be adopted to prevent
these disastrous ooourrenoes. A
Conciliation Act had been on tbe
statute books of the provinoe for
nine years, but it did not go far
enough. It oould not enforce the
awards of its own court. Tbe
speaker was therefore distinctly in
favor of this problem being considered seriously by the legislature.
Mr. Macdonald was greeted with
long and continued cheering and
hooraying at the conclusion of his
The Hon. A. S. Goodeve started

present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Pacifio Northwest. It was only a abort time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Paoifio railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad oentre and divisional poiut, and when these competing lines aro completed through to the
Pacific coast they will become tho main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to tho coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main Btreet is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, whioh is located iu tbe oentre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.

Referring to the eight hour law,
he stated it was a dead issue now,
but at the time it was alive he was
on its side.
As to the statement that the
speaker had said $2.50 a day was
enough for a workingman, he now
deolared that a workingman was
entitled to all he could earn.
To the further allegation, made
like the preoeding by the RosBland
Miner, that he wished to replace
the present polioe magistrate by
another, Mr. Goodeve made an emphatic denial.
Mr. Smith Curtis aooused him
when mayor of having sworn in
unnecessarily speoial constables
during the strike. The police magistrate had sworn them in. As
mayor the speaker had to stand between all parties.
Mr. Maodonald had objeoted to
his getting his portfo'io, and said
that Premier McBride ought to
have given it to him before. Tbe
premier oould not have done so
before the speaker had been nominated by the Conservatives,
Aa to the coal licences both he
and the premier were agreed that
prospectors entitled to their licences should have them, and tbe
government would look into the
matter after eleotion. The speaker was not in favor of exoluding
aliens if they had complied with
the law, if not, that was an entirely
different matter, and should be
j udged upon its merits.
The governments' "policy as to
the excessive expenditure was then
gone into. That expenditure was
not the fault of the Conservatives.
There had been no party government up to the present. The proposed polioy was to give no more
land subsidies to railways.    That

CHAPTER II (continued)
But when we spoke of the British people, I could satisfy hia curious aud many questions about
them more frankly. Every now
and then, as aorne answer interested him, he would tako a quick
glance at me as though to read in
my face whether it were the truth
or not, and, slopping by hie little
table he would jot down a passage
in wax, scan it over, and inquire of
something else. Our life and living, wars, religions, friendships, all
seemed interesting to this acute
gentleman so plainly clad, and it
was only when we had been an
hour together, and after he had
clearly got from me all he wished,
that he culled the guard and dismissed me, bidding Sempronius in
Latin, which the General thought
I knew not, to give me food and
drink, but keep me faBt for the
Sempronius showed the utmost
deferenco to the li do man iu the
toga and leather j rkin, listening
with bout head and backing from
his presence;, while I but roughly
gave him thanks for my freed
hands, and stalked out after my
jailer with small ceremony.
Once iu the starlight and out of
earshot the Centurion said to mo
with a frown—
'Biiton, I feel somewhat responsible for you, and I beg the next
time you leave thai presence not
to carry your head so high or turn
that wolf skin back of yours on
him so readily, or I am confident I
shall have orders to teach you
manners. Did you cast yourself
down when you entered?'
'Not V
'Jove! And  did not kneel while
you spoke to himV' •
'Not once,' I said.
'Now, by the Sacred Flame! do
you mean   to say   you   stood the
whole time as I found you, tower-
oring in your   ragged skine, your
bare braeeleted aims   upon  your
chest, and giving Caesar back stare
for stare in his very tent'?'
'Caesar himself. Why, who else?
Caesar, whose word is life and
death from hero to tho Apennines,
who is going to lick up this country of yours us a hungry beggar
licks out a porringer. Surely you
knew that he to whom you spoke
so freely was our master the great
Praotor bimselfl'
Here was an oversight! I might
have guessed so mucb; but, full of
other things, I had never supposed
the little man anything but a
Roman Oeneral sent out to barry
and pursue us. Strange ideas rose
at once, and, while the Tyrian in
me wiib awestruck by the closeness
of my approach to a famous and
dreaded person, the liriton moaned
at n golden opportunity lost to unravel, by one bold stroke—a stroke
of poignard, of burning brand from
the li"', of anything—the not that
was closing over this unfortunate
So strong rose these latter regrets
at having had Caeear, the unwelcome, tbe relentless, within arms'
length, and having let him go forth
with his indomitable blood still
flowing in his lordly veinB, that I
stopped short, clapped my hand
upon my swordless scabbard, and
made a hasty Btride back to the
At once the ready Sempronius
was on me like a wild oat, and with
two strong legionaries bore me to
the ground, and tied me hand and
foot. They carried me down to
camp, and there pitched me under
a rock to reflect until dawn on the
things of a disastrous day.
But by earliest twilight the bird
had flown! At midnight, when the
tired soldiers slept, I chafed my
hempen bonds against a rugged
angle of earth embedded stone, and
in fuur hours was free, rising silently among the snoring warriors,
and passing into the forest es
noiseleBsly aa one of those weird
black shadows that the last flashes
of their expiring camp fires made
at play on the background of the
I stole past their outmost pickets
while tho first flush of day was in
the east, and then, in the open,
turned me to my own people and
'an like a hind to her little one
over tho dewy grasslands and
through the spangled thickets, scaring the conies at their earliest
meal, and frightening the merles
and mavis ere they had done a bar
of Ibeir matin songs, throwing my
self down in the tents of my kinsmen just as the round sun shone
through the closed packed oak
But, curse the caitiff fools who
welcomed me there! It would have
been far belter had I abided
Caesar's anger, or trusted to that
martial boy Sempronius Paunusl
The British churls, angry and
sullen at their defeat of yesterday,
were looking for a victim to bear
the burden of their wrongs. Now
the priest Dhuwallon, win had
turned livid with fear and anger
when I came back unharmed from
the hands of the enemy, with a
ready,.wit which was surely lent
him from hell, he saw he might
propitiate the Britons and gratify
his own ends by one more coward
trick to be played at my expense.
I do not deny his readineBS or
grudge him aught, yet I hate him
even now from the bottom of my
heart with delight aud pride if I
oould have had his anointed blood
smoking in the runnels of my
Well. It was his turn again.
He procured false witnesses—not a
difficult thing for a high priest in
that discontented camp—and by
midday I was bound once more,
and before tho priests aud chiefs as
a traitor and Roman spy.
What good was it for me to
stand up and tell tho truth to that
gloomy circle while the angry
crowd outside hungered for a propitiatory sacrifice? In vain I lied
with all the resources 1 oould muster, in vain, when this was fruitless,
denounced the pule villain my accuser. When I came to tell of his
treachery in killing my horse the
day before, and leaving me to be
slain by the enemy, I saw I was
but adding slander in the judges'
eyes to my other crimes. When I
declared I was no Roman, but a
Briton—an aged fool, his long
white looks filleted with oak leaves
rose silently and held a polished
brass mirror before me, and by
every deity in the Northern skies I
must own my black dusky face was
far more Roman than native.
So they found me guilty, and
sentenced me to be offered up to
Baal next morning before the army
as a detected spy.
When the silvery dawn came, it
brought no reliuf or respite, for the
laws of the Druids, which enjoined
slow and deliberate judgments, forbade the altering of a sentence
once pronounced. It was a fine
day as could be wished for their
infernal ceremonial, with the yellow autumn mist lying wide and
flat along the endless vistas of oak
and hazel that then hid almobt the
valleys, and over the mist the
golden rayB of the sun spread far
and near, kissing with crimBon radiance the green knobs of upland
that shone above that pearly ooean,
and shining on the bare summits
of the lonely grass hills around ub,
aud gleaming in rosy brilliancy
upon the sea that flashed and
sparkled in grey and gold between
the downs to the southward. Here
in this fairy realm, while the
thickets were still beaded with the
million jewels of the morning, and
the earth breathed of repose and
peace, they carried out their detestable orgie of which I was the
My memory is a little hazy. Perhaps, at the time, I was thinking
of other things— a red haired girl,
for instance, playing with her
little ones outside her porch in a
distant glen: my Bhekels of brass
atud tin and silver; my kine, my
doge, and my horses, mayhap;
such things will be—and thus I
know little of how it came. But
presently I was ou the fatal spot.
A wide circle of green grass,
kept short and close, in the heart
of a dense thicket of oak. Round
this circle a ring of great stone
columns, crowned by mighty Blabs
of the same kind, and hung, today,
with all the skins and robes and
weapons of the assembled tribesmen; bo that tho mighty enclosure
was a rude amphitheatre, walled
by the wealth of the spectators,
and in the centre an oblong rock,
some eight feet long, wilh a gutter
down it for the blood to run into
a pit at its feet. This was the
fatal slip from which the Druids
launched that poor vessel, the soul,
upon tho endless ocean of etr/rnity.
All round tho great circle, when
its presence and significance suddenly burst upon me, were the
British, to the number of many
hundreds, squatting on the ground
in the front rows, or standing behind against the grey pillars, an
uncouth ring of motley barbarians,
shaggy with wolf and bear skins,
gleaming in braHS and golden links
that glistened in the morning light
against naked limbs and shoulders,
traced and pictured in blue woad
with a hundred designs of war and
They forced me and two other
miserable wretches to the altar,
and then, while our guards stood
by us aud the mounted men clustered among the monoliths behind,
a deadly Hilenco fell upon the
assembly. It was so Still wo could
hear the beat of our own hearts,
and so intolerable that one of us
three foil forward in a swoon ere it
had lasted many minutes. The
din of battle was liko the murmur
of a pleaeent brook before that
expectant hush; and when the
white procession of executioners came chanting up the
farther avenue of stones   into   the
arena, I breathed again as though
it was a nuptial procession and
they were bringing me a bride leas
grim than the golden adze whioh
shone at their head.
They sang round the circle -their
mystic song, and then halted before the rude stone altar. Mixing
up religion and justice as waB their
wont, the chief Druid recited the
crimes of the two culprits beside
me, with their punishment, and
immediately the first one, tightly
bound, was pitched upon the stone
altar; and while the Druids chanted their hymns to Baal the assembled multitude joined in, and
clanging their shields in an infernal tumult whioh effectually
drowned his yells for mercy, the
sacred adze fell, and first his head
and then hia body rolled into the
hollow, while twenty little streams
of crimson blood trickled down thb
sides of the altar stone. The next
one was treated in the same way,
and tumbled off in the hollow below, and I was hoisted up to that
reeking slab.
While they arranged me that
black prieet stole up and hissed in
my ear, 'Is it of Blodwen you think
when you shut your eyes? Take
this,then, for your final comfort,'he
Baid, with a malicious leer—'I, even
I, the despised and thwarted, will
see to Blodwen and answer for her
happiness. Ah!—yon writhe—I
though that would interest you. Let
your ht'st thought, accursed stranger, bo I aud she: let your last conception be my near revengel
Villain! 1 spit upon and deride
you!' And he was a good as his
word, glowering down upon me
helpless, with insatiate rage and
hatred in his eyes, and then,
Btepping back Bigned the executioner.
I heard the wild hymn to their
savage gods go riuging up again
through the green leaves of the
weapons upon the round braES
bound targets, the voices of the
priests and the cry of a startled
kite circling iu the pleasent autumn mist overhead. I saw the
great crescent of the sacred golden
adze awing into tbe sky, and then
while it was just checking to the
fall which should extinguish me,
there came a hush upon the people, followed by a wild shout of
fear and anger, and I turned my
head half over as I lay bound upon
the stone.
I saw tbe British multitude
seethe in confusion and then burst
and fly like the foam strands before the wind, aB, out of the green
thiokets, at the run, their cold,
brave faces all emotionless over
their long brass shields, came rank
upon rank of Roman legionaries,
I saw Sempronius on his white
charger at their head, glittering in
brass and scarlet, and finding my
tongue in my extremity, Sempron-
iusl' I yelled, 'Sempronius to the
rescue!'   But too late.
With a wavering, aimless fall
tbe adze descended between my
neck and shoulders, the black
curtain of dissolution fell over the
painted picture of the world, there
was a noise of a thousand rivers
tumbling into a bottomieBB cavern,
and I expiied.

Those  Dunsmuir Chinese
After Four Months Goodeve Finds a Policy
for McBride.
The first plank of the "Government Policy" is a fake forecast by
an alleged forecast artist, intended
to mislead electors into the belief
that the McBride government will
win out.
The second  plank is an attack \
upon the Laurior government for
raising the Chinese head tax from
the Conservative amount of SF50 to
The third plank is that the Rowland Liberal Association refused to
interfere with the strike, thus
forming a notable contrast to the
Board of Trade.

is on with the defectB in the Chinese Act excluding the employment
of Chinese underground. Why had
he not discovered the defect when

Grand ForkB to Phoenix, to share
in the greatest ore carrying trade
in the Provinco. Where iB be going to get the money to build that
2000 mileB?
Why lias McBride hidden in the
Similkameen for the past week, instead of facing the electors in the
ridings most vitally interested in
the coal and oil lands?
Is he afraid to meet the honest
applioants and declare the policy
of liis government? He was here
two monthB ago. He was als.o in
Nelson and in the Boundary, but
he made no public announcement.
He shunned the public platform.
He declined to take the public into
his confidence. He went about
lloss'and with a little clique of
Goodevo men, who have always
sought to rule this city, and who
now seek to rule the destinieB of
the Province.
He then slipped out with a promise to return and publicly state his
policy on provincial issues.
He has not done so. He would
not trust the publio and now the
public will not trust bim. But as
for his brand new Minister,
Rossland bas long ceased to trust

Even an honest forecast is of little value—a partisan one is of none.
The Goodeve sheet shows the desperate straits to which Mr. Goodeve and his allies are driven. They
have no hope of winning on the
merits of their candidate and thus
made him Provincial Seoretary to
hoodwink Rossland electors into
voting for the oflice and overlook
ing the man, and a great clamor is
raised that the McBride govern
ment can carry the Province. This
is the main feature of Mr. Good
eve's canvass, but no proof is offered or suggested. The forecaBt
artist says John Houston will be
elected in Nelson,Goodeve in Rossland and Wright in Ymir. He was
oil'ered a bet of $125 to $100 that
Mr. Macdonald would win in Roes
land but funked it.
The Goodeve sheet declares that
of tho twelve Kootenay ridings
every one will return a Conservative, with the possible exception of
Cronbrook. What a supreme con
tempt the slieot must have for the
electors of Rossland! Look at the
oues nearest us—Nelson a sure scat

Houston's factotum, Grand Forks
for Fraser! Now George Fraser

Honest Conservatives scout the notion of voting for such a man aB
Fraser. Grand Forks Conserva
tiveB will do there what they aro
doing in Rossland,emphatically decline to ally themselves with a
man in whom -they have not full
confidence. But to make that fore
cast a laughing stock completely is
the statement that Roasland is a
sure seat for Goodeve. If the seats
outside these ridings are no surer
than in Rossland, they are very in
secure indeed. The Liberals have
ample assurance that besides the
eight seats that they will surely
win in the Kootenay that they will
also have a substantial majority in
other parts of the province. Without going fully into the matter it
may be well to point out Mr. Goodeve soys the two seats of Cariboo
may be considered a dead cinch for
the Consesvatives. Mr. Stuart
Henderson of Ashcroft reports that
both Liberal candidates will win
Vote for Macdonald and

The Oriental Policy
Goodeve attackB the Dominion
government on its Oriental pdioy.
What is Goodeve's government
going to do? The "Government
Policy" does not answer.
That Forecast Artist-
Are Mr. MacNeill's qualifications
for the imaginative post of forecast
artist derived from the faot that he
is the solicitor for tbe Great Northern.
The chief ory of the Goodeve
faction is that of stable government. But looking into the mat-
tor what is found but those elements of diaoord whioh make for
extreme instability. The premier
is only the representative of a
faction of the Conservative party.
He was never selected for that post.
Taking advantage of the conjuncture of certain political affairs at
the end of last seBsion Mr. McBride
seized upon the government. The
rank and file of the Conservative
parly in convention duly and
solemnly assembled selected
Charles Wilson. \ It iB Charles
Wileon and not Richard McBride
who is the true leader of the Conservative party. CharleB Wilson
in all probability will be returned
to the hi use if any Conservative
is. Ia he to bo expected to
surrender a placo of honour to one
who has deprived him ofitwith-
out a struggle? Hub he the right
to bo surrender il? And did he do
so would it not be the duty of the
Conservative party to select another leader, who would not be
necessarily MoBride?
Besides this perfectly legitimate
quarrel with the supremacy of the
present premier there is the faotion
or cabal against bim consisting of
old parliamentary hands and
others, such as Eberts, Pooley
Houston (and his facto'nm Wright \
and Hunter, the man of Duufmuir.
What is McBride going to do with
these men even if he is sustained?
What, may equally pertinently be
asked, are they going to do with
McBride? Is it likely that such
men as these just mentioned will
be led by the nose by one MoBride
and one A. S. Goodeve, "well known
in the Kootenays?"
The elements of disunion, of consequent instability are already
present. With no policy, with no
real loader, with a cabinet made up
hurriedly at the last moment
with the express object of influencing the elections, does any intelligent elector for one moment think,
can he be expected to think,that this
government, even if sustained,
could  last.one session?
The cry cf stable government is
even more false than the other misleading cries of the candidates of
the government.

Macdonald is a vote lost is a boomerang in face of the telegram from
Victoria published on this page.
DoeB MoBride admit that locators of coal and oil lands have any
statutory rights? If he does, why
has he not said so, and declare
what they are. If they have any
rights why haven,t they been
granted tbem?
Vote to overthrow the
old clique.
The Personal Surrounding the Provincial Secretary
The Hon. A. S. Goodeve and his
clique strongly recall to the remembrance oi the city the past administration of tbe olyic affairs of
Roasland. A glance at the men
who are surrounding Mr. Goodeve
at the present moment, will disclose the fact that they are practically the same set who have brought
discredit upon the government of
Roasland in the past. The electors
are sick of the whole thing and certainly will not stand for its continuance, despite the colossal insolence
of the appeal to their suffrages.
A Little Bluff
The "Sheet" Bays that the Con
servatives wanted a clause in tbe
Grand Trunk Pacific prohibiting
the employment of Chinese. . It
omitted to state that the contraot
already contained such a olause
and that Mr. Bennett therefore is
guilty of a bluff like that of our
forecast artist.

Ex-Chief Ingram, and the men
who brought the city into disrepute
last year, will give a long pull, and
a strong pull and a pull altogether
for their confederate on Saturday
and in the interval.
But RoBsland will give them their
quietuB onoe and for all. Mr. Maodonald has declared publicly and
emphatically against robbing the
people of the province of the heritage of coal and oil lands. He
took a fair and equitable stand on
the question, and while declaring
in favor of the bona fide prospector
of whatever nationality, and bona
fide grub staker, pronounced unmistakably against the class mentioned above. With this the honest locators and grub Btakers are
perfectly satisfied.
But what ie Goodeve's attitude?
He gave a private letter to some
men who waited upon him, that he
was in favor, after election, of granting to all locators their statutory
rights. The law gives them this
without Goodeve's leave. But
when asked by Mr. Macdonald in
dear emphatic terms to state what
he would do with applications in borrowed names, he
dodged and would not an
swer. He is the oandidate of the
dummies and not of the applicants
and the honest applioants know
that their only protection lies in
supporting the man who will not
dodge the issues.
Contrast of the Policies of

The Oriental is a Dominion
question dragged by the heels into
this contest. Conservatives were
in power for eighteen years up to
1896. The Chinese head tax during that time was $50. Contractor
Onderdo'nk, having trouble with
striking workmen on the C. P. R.,
got the Conservative government to
suspend even that small tax, and
brought in some 3000 Chinamen
to break the strike. Laurier came
into power in 1896. He raised the
head tax to $100. He appointed a
commission to investigate the
whole question, who reoommended
an increase to $300, and afterwards to $500. Laurier thereupon
passed a bill making the tax $500.
The Liberals in the house and in
the senate were unanimous in support of the bill. Take your choice
of the two records.

For the first time Victoria city is sure to elect

majority of 300.

If the attendance at the rival
meetings last night at the Opera
house of the Conservatives and
at the International Theatre of the
of the Liberals is any criterion, and
surely it is of what ie going to happen today, then J. A. Macdonald
will be eleoted by a three to one
majority. At the International
Theatre all was spontaneous enthusiasm and the hall was crammed by over 400 people, many
standing [to listen to the rousing
speeches made by the supporters
of Mr. Macdonald.
On the contrary at the opera
bouse, there was but a sparse attendance, not more than 157 by
actual connt at a period in the
in the middle of tbe evening. The
attention was lukewarm, the applause faint. Mr. Macdonald and
friends on the one hand boldly discussed the issues of the day, the
Goodeve speakers confining themselves for the most part to mere
invective and to bold reiteration of
exploded compaign "facts."
Vole for Macdonald  and  good
