ANOTHER NEW COMPANY.
During the week T G Procter, of
Nelson, who haa acquired the Bilverton
Hoy claim near town, accompanied by
N J Davies late superintendent of the
Hall Mines, spent a lew davs in looking
over our camp and making arrangements
for the further development of thc Silverton Boy properly, 'tbey expressed
themselves as highly pleased with tbe
showing made and bope to be able tn
develope it int.i a mine this winter.
The Silverton Hoy claim adjoins the
Emily Edith Croup and is crossed bv
Four Mile creek about one mile above
tuwn. It Ih a silver lead proposition and
already shipping ore lias been encountered upon it, and it looks as if it only
required work to make u shipping mine
out of it. The camp is lortimate in
having this property fall into tbe bands
of Mr. Procter, who has suflicent capital
at hia command to properly develope it
and is a mining man who is an sucee-sful
in his mining ventures as lie is liberal
in his views. He will be a valuable addition to our mine-owncis and more like
him would l»e welcome bei -. lie also
visited while here tbe Congo Group on
Red Mountain, in which it is hoped he
will interest himself.

PASSED LAST YEAR'S RECORD.
During the week the Hewett sent out a
twenty ton shipment of ore to tlie smcl.
ter. This with the shipments from the
lower end of tha Like bring-* tlu lake
shipments up to 3189 tf. ns, more than
the total la«t year's shipment nf 3078 tons,
and with tbe best pirt of the shipping
season yet to come. It would be no surprise if, ot the end of the year, a total of
6003 tons would be reached With Slo
can oe netting an ay-rane of $100 a
tun, the wealth being produced hy
thia n-wcounlrv can be easily figured up.

HOAV THE DEVIL DOES HIS WILL.
The Devil was dying of ennui;
So he sauntered forth from his den.
And he came by tbe Springs of Mundane
Things,
And gazed on the sons ol Men,
And ho sighed at the Centary's ending,
For I.e saw tlie worid st peace;
Then  he cried, "Alack ! have I loat my
knack?
These pipiug limes must cease."
So he fibbed a Moralist's  mantle,
Aid went on bis Jaunty   course,
In his raiment tine, with the air benign
Of a Civilizing Force.
First be whispered a word to the States-
. mar,:
"Q-'ick, out wiili thy idle knife!
Else   the   People,   thy  trust,    will   in
harness rust,
Go, preach ihem ibe Strenuous Life!"
Of a people that lived in quiet,
The IVvil demurely   spoke:
"Go, Benevolent Man, to that Primitive
Clan,
And Assimilate those foil, "
And the Statesman sprang,  at the summons.
And donned his warrior's coat;
Cried the   Devil.   "Hurrah!"   as each
man be saw
Wilh bis band at bis neighbor's throat.
And straigh'nav the Prophets of Progress
Joined piously in tbe din ;
And   the   Devil   cried,  'See! These My
Ministers  be,
And this is my Chamberlain!"
He slyly spoke to the Rulers:
"Is thy ancent valor cold ?"
Aud   the   sens  grew   black? where the
Warship's track
Made straight for tl e shores of gold.
Till the world was filled with mourning,
Af, ihe> called for mine and more;
And men held iheir breath as the pallid
Death
Rode proud in the van of War.
Which so vhb'Iv smused the Devil
' list tears ran d,w n bis face.
And he wagged   his   tail,   as Men cried
"Hail!
Make way for the Dominant Rat-el"
The Devil slipped into the pulpit:
"'Tis the spread of the Cross!" be hissed
And   the   Priest   with  a nod asked tiie
hles-ing nf God
On tbe March of the Sanctified Fist.
With the voice of Ibe People's Teachers,
The Devil disgni-ed himself;
Hurrah !" il rang, as tlie bullets sang,
"For Deal in v. Duty and Pelf!"
He laughed a« the Backward Nations
Dropped into the Conqueror's maw;
And he chuckled long al the Poet's sonu
Of "The spread of Cbrist'a Word and
-  Law."
And   he  shook   bis sides as he watched
them,
Nor once did bis soft laugh cease.
As the  DtS'.i anl   Race  ran its ghastly
pace
In the Name of the Prince of Peace.
So the Devil went hark to hia study,
Quoth be, wilh a wink and a nod:
"Sure, tbe true wav still to do My Will
Is to call it the Work  of God.

CHRIS. FOLjEX I8CHOSEM.
The Independent Party Convention,
held in Nelaon thia week, resulted aa was
expected in the nomination of a candidate and the drawing np of a platform
upon whijh he will appeal to the electorate.
Tbe candidate ia Christopher Foley of
the Roaaland Miners' Union, wbo at the
time be waa informed of his nomination
waa at work 400 feet underground in tbe
Centre Star mine at Roaaland.
Tbe platform adopted consists of til*
following eleven plunks:
Nol—Free compulsory education.
No 2—A legal working day of eight
hours.
No 3—Government Inspection of ail
industries.
No 4—The abolition of the contract
system on all public worka.
No 6--The public ownership of all
franchises, such aa tailwaya, telegraphs,
waterworks, lighting, etc.
No 6—The abolition of Asiatic immigration, Ihe application ot tha educ. tion-
al teat and the abolition of inducement*
to foreign immigration to settle in tbe
Dominion.
No 7—The abolition of child labor trader 14 vears of age.
No 8-The abolition of the |250" deposit required of candidate* for the Dominion House.
No 9—Compulsory arbitration of labor
disputes.
No 10—Prohibition of prison labor in
competition with free labor.
No 11— Compulsory exercise of the
Iranchise.
In choosing Mr Foley to lead them in
the campaign, the Independents have
chosen wisely. Tbeir candidate la wel'
known throughout the Riding, and
respected wheiever known; a man of
advanced ideas bqt with no trace of tbe
"agitator" in his makeup, being on the
contrary hard-headed, practical and conservative; an earnest aod forcible debater, a deep thinker and a speaker of
ability and force. Thoee who know Mr.
Foley personally know that hia acceptance of the nomination was made with
no feeling of personal ambition but with
the idea of assuming hia share of a great
task.
The Independent candidate, if be re-
ceives-the solid support of hia party, wilt
lead an attack against the politicians
such as they are not prepared for, He
will bo found no mean antagonist, and to
offsett the advantages he haa to atart
with his two opponents must take to the
stump at once.
COMHUSICATED.
The Editora do not hold themselves in

be accompanied by the name of the writer.    None will be published otherwise.
NO  GAME   TODAY.
The Sllverton-Nelson Football game
is off again. The Silvertoniuns who put
up eo generously for the Football Club
this season are thus depilved of the
last chance of having one game played
here. This is due to no fault ot the
executive of the club, who havo tried in
everyway to secure a home game, but
solely to tbe umportmanllke actions of
outside teams wbo refused to play return
games agreed upon.
Editor Silvertonian:
Dear Sib:—
With your kind permission may I
makes few remarks through the columns
of your paper in reply to the communication by "Thought-about-it." It
seems your correspondent is laboring
under a delusion of no small magnitude,
for he neither understauda the writer,
nor the motive that prompted the communication in the Ledge relating to
Sabbath desecration. It is farthest from
me the thought of asking anyone to
conform to my views in the matter, and
my communication wus prompted rather
as a means ol inducing the highest and
beet thought, each man for himself, ou
the question. All men must answer for
their own individual acts, not to any
church, eieen, nor individual, but to
their Maker. Every man kniws in his
own heart right from wrong. He may
deceive himself for a time, but with all
hia dodging and seeking (o make himself
right by false teachings, heathen doctrine and moral laws, he must in Ihn
end be judged by the laws laid down by
the Great Law Giver. If "Thoiigbt-
aiiout-it ' wonld do a little more thinking
he may yet comprehend the writer, and
inatead of looking upon him as a
"narrow-minded bigot," etc., he may
see him in an entirely different light.
For ninteen hundred years men have
objected to being reminded of their
apiritual shortcomings. Tbey bave
attemiii d to place all new-fangled ideas
of carnal man above the Bible; they
would cast aside the Good Book aa the
foundation stone upon which tbe Christ-

BRANCHING  OUT.
The Wm. Huntei Co.. Ltd., which,
with headquartere lo Silverton aod various branches in the district carry on
one of the biggest general supply businesses in the province, made an important addition to the number of their
stores last week. This consisted of the
purchase of the stock and business of the
Western Mercantile Company of Nelaon,
one of the best retail aupply houses east
of the Coast.
In speaking of their new firm, the Nelson Tribune aaya: "Mr, Hunter's first
business venture in Nelson waa aa a
partner in the International Hotel, which
stood at the corner of Vernon snd Stanley streets, and which was destroyed by
fire in the spring ot 1894. In tbe fall of
1801, having sold his interest in the hotel, he started the first general merchandise store opened at New Don ver, then
lhe only town in the Slocan. The venture proved a success. He also managed the pioneer steamboat on Slocan
Lake, a boat that was sold to the Canadian Pacific when that Company took
over all tbe steamboats on the Columbia
river and Kootenay lake. Mr. Hunter ia
now interested iu the William Hunter
Company, Limited, carrying on buainea
as general merchani.1 at Silverton, Three
Forks and Alamo."
The business just taken over hy tbe
Silverton firm waa established by G A
Bigelow in 1890. Harry Wilson, one ot
the firm, will have charge of the new
branch.

STRANGE SUICIDE
Queer End of a Wealthy New
York Citizen.
DIED   IN   VACANT HOUSE
Cause of Death Not Yet Known-
No Violence or Robbery.
New York, Oct. 3.—What appears to be a case similar to that
of banker Robert McCurdy Lord,
who rented a house in Mount Vernon in which to commit suicide,oc-
cured today in a vacant house at
3012 Fifth avenue. The owner,
Jas. O. West, worth between
$300,000 and $400,000 and who
lives at 147 West 27th st. with his
wife and children, was found dead
there this morning.
The only furniture in the place
was what he had taken in. He
laid three curtains on the floor,
placed the comfortable and cushion
on them and died, in what manner
is unknown.
A surgeon who examined the body
did not determine the cause of
death. There are no marks about
the body to indicate the cause of
his death. There are no signs of
violence ard no robbery was committed. He had lost no money in
speculating, so far as is known. He
was seventy years old.
VIRTUALLY
A PRISONER
Kruger   Abused   Privileges and Was Called
Down*
New York. Oct. 3.—The restrictions around Kruger, are increased
and he is virtually a prisoner, says
a dispatch from Lorenzo Marques.
He had been allowed to use the
Portuguese governor's carriage.
While driving yesterday he met a
party of burghers and made them a
patriotic speech. The governor h*s
now refused him the use of his carriage.
Kruger has been warned to make
no more speeches and is forbidden
to wear the green sash that is the
insignia of his office. He expects
to sail on a Dutch cruiser for Holland next week.

Haxelton, Pa., Oct. 3.—There
was no material change in the strike
situation here this morning. So
far as could be learned about the
same number of men were idle
today as yesterday.
An attempt was made this morning to blow up with dynamite the
house occupied by Mitchael Zulick,
a mine worker in the eastern part
ol thecity, but no extensive damage
was caused. Zulick haa been
working since the strike went into
effect.

Haxleton, Pa., Oct. 3.-—As yet
there has been no move on the part
of the individual operators who are
still holding out against the big
coal mining and coal carrying
companies to post notices of an ad-
vunce in wages to the men in this
region.
Mi.inul*In Collieries Close.
•Shamokin, Pa., Oct. 3.—Foi.
lowing the example of the owners
of the Midvalley collieries, the
Shamokin companies closed down
this morning. Three hundred men
and boys were given employment
by them during the past two weeks.
Fifty-nine cars were loaded with
coal at the North Franklin colliery
at Trevcrton yesterday. |t was
the largest one day tonnage in the
history of the coporation.
Tke Derby and *4rl**m MM
The biggest mining or real estate
deal which has been made in Rossland for some months past was
closed today when Lucien Weyl, of
Nelson, representing the Societe
d'Ktudes de la Colombie Britan-
nique, of Paris, France, purchased
from T. B. Garrison and W. V.
Clark the Derby and Nelson No. 2
mineral claims. The price at which
the property changed hands was not
made public but is understood to be
about $50,000 of which half was
paid in cash and the balance will be
paid on or before October 5.
The sale includes not only the
mineral rights of these two properties, which adjoin the Legal Tender
(Pack Train) and Nick of Time on
the south, the Alice and the Spitzee
on the west and lie within 600 feet
of the Le Roi uselt, but also the
title to 102 lots, generally known
as the Derby addition, which immediately adjoin the original town-
site on the west and include the new
school site which Engineer Gamble
will recommend the provincial government to purchase.
Mr. Weyl was seen by a Record
reporter just before he left for Nelson this afternoon. He confirmed
the news of the sale but said he
was not in a position to say just
when the development of the claims
would be begun or whether his
company would sell any of the lots
at present.

London, Oct. 3.—The following
dispatch has been received from
Lord Roberts:
"Pretoria, Oct. 2.—A convoy of
22 wagons, guarded by 60 mounted
men, was attacked hy 140 Boers
on October 1 near Dejagers Drift,
while on the way to Vryhead.

Shenandoah, Pa., Oct. 3.—Absolute peace resigns in and about
Shenandoah. General Corbin said
to day that he hoped to send the
Eighth regiment home tomorrow.
This will leave the Fourth regiment, Battery C and the governor's
troops in the field, about 800 men
in all.
Major Farquhar, provost mar-
shall, stated that the foreigners
in the vicinity of Indian Ridge colliery and the eastern end of Shenandoah are displaying an ugly disposition.

While Commissioner Keen has
not handed down a written decision
in the I.e Roi assessment appeal
case, and will not do so until the
whole of the testimony has been
transcribed, he has announced that
his judgment will be in favor of sustaining the assessment and that, in
his opinion, the amount of tax to be
paid by the Le Roi company should
be $1,353.21. It is most probable
this decision will be appealed.
Counsel in the cess made their
arguments at the afternoon session

amount of notes which have be*.n required for the
purchase of gold dust and olher purposes at our

that «e have subscribed $2,500 to the lund for the
relief of the sufferers by the conflagration at Ottawa, and we feel confident that our action will meet
with your cordial approval. I Hear, hear) The next
item, which is again referred to specially in the
report, as well as the balance sheet, is an appropriation of 1.1,000 to meei expenditures on premises account. This sum we have)set apart out ol
the prohts of the half-year towards the expenditure on our new premises on (.rare-church street.
Those of you uho from time to time visit the
bank must have appreciated that, for a long time

past these premises have been entirely inadequate
lor our business, and consciueiitliftlncarlyjthree
years ago, we decided that it was absolutely nee
esiary tor us to make a change. The matter has
constantly occupied our attention, and during all
thia time we have frequently eiulea-. nred to secure
more suitable offices, but without success, until
a few months ago we were ottered a long lease of
the lower basement nl the Woolpack building In
(iracecluirch street. We do sot say that the situation is all that we 1 ould desire-but it it i.s not
quite within the most select circle, it is at least
convenient, and we believe will prove suitable for
our business. The accommodation which we have
secured should prove to be ample, not only for
our present purposes, but for a considerable
growth In our business. The ground Honr is now
being adapted lor our banking requirements. It
Is exceptionally well lighted, and will make a
handsome banking hall, affording to Ihe public, as
well as to the -tail of the bank the space
which has been singularly wanting here. On the
lower ground Door adjoining tlie board room we
have ai ranged for a large and comfortable room,
which will bc devoted to our friends and customers from Canada. The number of those who annually visit us on business Inconstantly increasing,
and tor a long time past It haa been a matter of
concern to us thai we have been quite unable to
show them any hospitality of this kind--our offices
being so cramped that we have not even been able
to provide a waiting room for their accommodation
The plans for our new premises have been arranged
so as to supply tbis neea in the most convenient
manner possible, and we hope that in the future it
will be appreciated and constantly made use or by
all our friends, to whom we desire to extend a very
warm welcome. (Hear, hear.) The basement will
be occupied by the store rooms The necessary
alterations are uow being carried out under the
direction ol our architect, Mr, Mac-vicar Anderson
and will, we hope, be completed before the end of
the year. The cost of these alterations will be considerable, and the sum which we have now appro
prlated will not nearly suffice to cover It; but we
have thought that the balance might fairly be
spared over subsequent half years. The usual appropriations for the benefit of the staff referred to
in the report will, I feel sure, be approved. On the
other side of the account, our cash and specie
amount to / 1,15.1,000. being an increase ol /,;;(,
000, This represents a proportion of 51) per cent
to our immediate liabilities. Vou will no doubt
observe that the bank is In exceptionally strong
position. We leel that the financial outlook is not
without its uncertainties, and we like to be prepared for them. Cash at call and short notices
amounts to /'^ai.ooo—a decrease ofjyfioi.ooo: but
this decrease, you will observe, is much more than
compensated for by the increase In the last Item-
Under the heading of investment!, Consols remain
unchanged, but we have added to our Hritish Government securities by tha purchase of /10,000 of
the National War Loan, which we have written
down to 90 out of the profits of the half-year so
that in our next balance-sheet, when the stoci_ is
fully paid the 1:50.000 stock will stand in our books
at *4s.ooo. In making this provision we are
quite aware that it may be rcirarded as almost
an extreme measure, for it . Is most unlikely Ihat a stock, repayment of which at par
alter ten years is guaranteed by the Uri'.lth Gov
ernaqent, can fall to such a low figure; but, never
theless, the war In Ihe Transvaal It not even ye
ended, and i( Is impossible for anv of us to fore
cast the expenditure dial may still be necessary
for military puruoses in South Africa and In China
and conserantlf we have thought it well to be on
the safe side and Place this investment on the
same level as the Consols. iHear. hear I This
purchase is another step toward the attainment of
the object whicli we steadfastly keep before us of
haying the whole of our reserve fund invested In
British Government securities other investments
show a decrease of e*,ooo. The next item- bills
receivable, loans on security and other an mints-
shows an increase of tiai.ooo. We carry forward
to the new account /0.800. which i. slightly less
than in lune, i.1<m. wnen we carried forward £10.-
apo. On a previous occasion I explained to you
thai it has never been our policy to make any addition to our reserve fund at this half yei'ly meet
'"•?_.."_! T*2B.,0 ""X/orwart a substantial amount
with the obiect of adding to lhe reserve at the end
of the year. Last year, you will recoiled, we added
U5.000 to our reserve lund. and we shall be greatlv
disappointed if we are not able to add al least as
much this year. On a previous (Kca,ion I pointed
out to you that the growth ol our reserve lund has
SSTiH RH ""Sft *ept pac' *"h "•' increase of
our liabilities. This was not caused by any neglect
on our part, but because during the lean years
which we were passing through we had not the
means of doing so. In I lustration of what I have
said I wish lo place before you a comparison be-
.ween our present hgures and Ihose Ave years
ago. In lune. 1895, our reserve funo amounted lo
t/7,.ooo_ new it stands _t.j_K.ooo. an increase of

Reading Company's Ten Per
Cent Ignored.
STRIKERS STANDI*!! FIRM
Will Not Take Any Action Without
the Consent of President
Mitchell.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct 1.—No attempt was made to resume operations at any of the mines. A meeting of the general superintendents
of the big companies and the individual operators will be held here
this afternoon. It is thought a formal offer will then be made to the
miners working in this vicinity.
The terms will probably be the
same as those prosposed by the
Reading Co. but so far ignored by
the strikers, a ten percent increase
in wages with a promise to arbitrate other grievances if the men
return to work. There will be no
formal recognition ol the miners
union. If the men accept a ten per
cent increase all well and good. If
they do not, the operators say the
strike is destined to goon.
At strike headquarters it was
given out that the men would take
no action, no matter what offer the
companies should make, until the
president had been consu'ted.

London,Oct. 1.—A dispatch from
Lord Roberts dated Sept.  30  says:
"Rundle's troops in the Bethlehem district have recaptured from
the Boers a mountain battery gun

63,000 rounds of Martini-Henry

The Hon. James Dunsmuir is redeeming his promise to replace his

Chinese Situation Improulng
Washington, Oct. 1.--Important
dispatches were received today from
China comfirming the events recorded on Saturday.
From Canton, Consul McWade
reported the issue of a decree pun-
ishing Tuan and his colleagues,
so that there is no longer doubt as
to the accuracy of Sheng's statement on that point.
Mr., Conger also has received
official notification of the appointment of the Chinese peace commission which was forecast by Minister Wit's advices several days   ago.
Li Hung Chang's long stay at
Tien Tsin gives the idea that he is
not fully satisfied that the reactionary element is overcome at Pekin,
and is waiting more positive assurance.
General Chaffee has cabled the
war department that he has received the instructions to withdraw
most of the United States troops
from China. The ninth infantry, a
a squadron of cavalry and a light
battery will be left as a legation
guard,
Again the record for the voyage
across the Atlantic has been lowered. The Deutschland, of the
Hamburg-American line, recently
madejthe run between New Vork
and Queenstown, a distance of 2982
nautical miles,in five days and eight
hours, a clean average of nearly 25
miles an hour for the whole distance. Thus step by step the time
between the two hemispheres has
been reduced since the days] of the
old sailing vessels. Within the last
quarter of a century the record has
passed so often from one vessel to
another thai a'perlormance regarded as phenomenal at the time'was
quickly forgotten, and navigators
are not yet satisfied that the limit of
speed has been reached.
The Persia's record of nine days,
one hour and 45 minutes, made in
185b, stood unbeaten for a decade,
when the Scotia cut it down by a
few hours. She was followed three
years later by the City of Brussels,
which made the run in seven days,
22 hours and three minutes. Not
to enumerate all the reductions
others came at intervals of a year
or less as follows: Baltic, Berlin,
Germanic, Britannic, Arizona, Alaska, America, Oregon, Etruria, Um-
bria. This brings us to 1899, when
the City of Paris for the ffrst time
cut the record below six days by
nearly five hours.
Records since then have been
made as follows, the time being
given in hours: 1891, Majestic, 138;
1891, Teutonic, 136; 1892, City ol
Paris, 135; 1892, City of Paris,
134; 1893, Campania, 132; 1894,
Lucania, 127.
The Lucania then held the record
for four j ears, when the Kaiser
Wilhelm der Grosse took it Irom
her.

Vanderbilt Gives His Daughter a Half Million.
AS  A   THANK   OFFERING
For the Duke's Safe Return After
Hit War Service In South
Africa.
New York, Sept. 29.—Wm. K.
Vanderbilt has given his cheque for
half a million'dollars to his daughter, the Duchess of Marlborough.
The gift is io the nature of a thank
offering for the duke's safe return
from the war in South Africa, after
about seven months service. The
duchess is now in Paris investing
the money in antique furniture and
decorative articles for the house in
Mayfair. Another half million dollars was a Christmas gift to the
duchess from her father.
Koysl Fan, r.
London, Sept. 29.—The Queen
now has a long list of names submitted to her as those of persons
worthy of honors for service in
South Africa. The identity of those
who figure in this list is already
causing keen speculation in certain
circles. The shower of Bath (C.
M. G.'s) Companion of St. Michaels
and St. George, etc., will be unprecedented. It is rumored that Lord
Wolseley will be made an earl and
be appointed viceroy of Ireland to
succeed Earl Cadogan.
What Lord Roberts will get remains a secret. Lord Kitchener, it
is said, if he remains in South Africa, will be given the local rank of
full general, so that he can be second in command only to Gen. Buller, after Lord Rooerts leaves.
THE PACIFIC CABLE.
The newspapers in Australia are
calling attention to the fact that the
Pacific cable is not being lost sight
of, as shown by the recent opening
of tenders for 'construction, when
that of the Telegraph Construction
company was found lowest at £1,-
886,000.
Three years ago the advisory
committee appointed in London reported that the Telegraph Construction company estimated the cost of
a cable from Vancouver via Honolulu at considerably over ^2,000,-
000. At the recent opening of bids
some of the tenders were lower than
the sum first mentioned above, but
their terms and conditions were not
satisfactory to the committee.
Another View
New York, Sept. 31.—"I have
strong reasons for believing that
both the Berlin and London press
have been misinformed," says the
Tribune's London correspondent,
"and that Lord Salisbury will not
support the German demand that
certain leaders of the anti-foreign
government in China shall be surren-
deredor punished before negotiations
are entered into for permanent
peace. He will deliver his answer
after all the other powers have expressed their views. I am convinced that his position will not be far
removed from that of the American
state department, with the single
exception that there will not be any
intimations that British troops will
be withdrawn from China. Lord
Salisbury is too adroit a diplomatist
to cause irritation at Berlin by a
point blank relusal to consider the
German proposals, but he will not
commit Kngland to the impracticable policy of suspending all negotiations for peace, until the leaders ofthe campaign of outrage and
massacre are surrendered by the
empress,"
Hoers Defeated
London, Sept. 28.—Lord Roberts
reports to the war oliice under date
of Pretoria, Sept. 27 as follows;
"The Boers attacked a portion of
Page's forces at Pienaar river station this morning, but were beaten
off after three hours fighting.

A  ONE   HORSE GOVERNMENT
Into what kind of one-horse affair
has our Provincial Oo .-eminent de. eloped? A great splurge was made
when the Estimates were passed so
Senerousy and roads galore were
promised and provided for. On Slocan
Lake there the matter rests. Now
the snow is within sight and the
Silver Mountain and Red Mountain
roads are not yet begun, while properties are being held back waiting for
them. And this was to have been a
Business Government!
Another matter  was  rushed along
during the lost session.    The Liquor
Licence Act was passed as a   measure
needed at once.    And   as   far as that
matter   is   concerned   for the Slncau
tbere it rests still.   As yet,   after   s
lapse of months, tbe licencing district
is stiil  unorganized.    When   a new
licence was required,   of  which tbere
were   several,   application   had to be
made lo Victoria, where the circumstances   cannot   he   known   and the
