Wlm Wants a Hard Winter?
Old timers in Silverton are becoming
alarmed owing to that strange malady
matrimony, having lately broken out in
Silverton in its most violent form, already
claiming several victims. Several ol the
old timers swear that they left the east
tn escape this although no one here
believes them, as they presist in exposing themselves to the contagion at every
opportunity. According lo those who
Claim (o know, only a iong hard winter
will effectually stamp out this disease
bat ali are secretly hoping for an open
fall nnd ii mild winter.
This malady does not attack all its
victims alike, hut there are certain
symptom! which if not cheeked in lime
will rapidly develope into an attack
which no amount of leasoning will stop.
The fust stage of tho disease is shown by
ihe unfortunates lack nf interest in a
bla.'k-jack aud in slipping away fiom the
cang at night, some having even been
known to refuse a drink. The second
stage is if anything worse. It is observed
that the patient has suddenly become
industrious, spota of paint are observed
on his clothes, hie thumb is tied up in
rags to hide where he rested the hammer
while fixing up his shack, a look of
desperation has come into his eyes and
he at times talks prohibition. By this
time the victim has reached a stage
when even his best friends are but
wasting their time In trying to areue
with him. Suddenly he appears on tbe
streets in store clothes and sneaks on
the boat with a ticket to Nelson in his
pocket, while hia sorrowing friends
search the town over for tin cans.
When the patient reaches thnt stage
in his delirium tbat lie heads the town
followed by our biass band—making the
rounds—it may lie taken for granted that
bo is woll on bis way towards recovery.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. W. A.
Galliber, the Libera! nominee f >r Ibis
Riding, addressed the Silverton electors,
who had gathered to hear him in tbe
Union Hall.' W. Hunter, of this piece,
acted as chairman and it being Mr.
Galliher's first visit to Silverton, (lie
chairman introduced blm to tho audience
in a few chosen words. Mr. Galliber
opened bis address by impressing upon
his hearers tbe fact that the balance of
this Dominion had gone strongly Liberal
and that they would be only pre judicina '*
their cause by electing an Independent,
who would only have to go to the party
in powSr, the Liberals, to get anything.
With the elnuK-es ol lieing refused! '
While if they returned hinr, a Liberal, be
believed that ha was broad-minded
enough to represent all classes and safeguard their interests along with others
and tbat if be went to the Government
asking ior some measure' for them lie
was much more likely to get it than a
rank outsider,an Independent.
He renewed the tariff question at somo
length and while claiming to be a freo
trader believed that that happy resiil*
must be brought about by degrees, and
tbat at the present time ae were much
nearer free trade than the Conservatives
would admit, having already 4(5 articles
on the fiee list, formerly taxed.
The dealings of the Conservative paity
with tbe U 1' It he strongly condemned
and compared it with the present policy
of the Government which had done
away with land bonuses and had secured
some right to regulate freight charges on
new railway undertakings. Ho apologized for his party in regard to the
attempted granting of a land bonus to
tbe Yukon railway, and said that it did
not coincide with his views, lie nisi
referred to the sending oi Uie Canadian
soldiers to tbe South African Wur and
the preferential tariff in favor of (front
Britain, for both of which the Liberal
party were responsible. Thia showed
loyalty to the mother land nml Iho
gradual drawing together of the 1- inpiie.
Speaking of the Chinese, he pledged
himself to not only work for their totsl
exclusion but also of tbe Japanese.
The Alien Labor Law, ho believed,
should be rigidly enforced. He advanced
the nrgiimeut that capital and labor wero
more ur less dependent on each oilier
aim that compulsory arbitration or somo
similar act should be passed lo compel
both sides to settle tbeir disputes and lie
fair with eacli oilier.

patriotic of British subjects. His Cabinet, lie claimed, as having, each in its
own department, been  most ably hand-
no better or as good u 11 of

address by asking all to support him in
the present contest, claiming thul tho
Liberal party had done moie lur labor
than the other paity. although only in
power for the lust four years.
Mr. Galliber made a good impression

de Castellaine, whose property has

a French court, was questioned relative to the matter, says a Paris
report to the World.    She said:
"Please make light of the matter. It will only revive .stories
which will hurt my dear husband's
feelings. He already suffers keenly the exposure of his present situation." Count Boni has been away
from Paris for the last three days,
but will return Thursday. Last
night he was conveising an hour
with his father over the long distance telephone, and heard the
news. He is indignant that the
court should bave appointed a foreigner to watch over the countess'
fortune. He wanted his father appointed if a trustee was needed.
"My son" said the Marquis de
Castellaine, last night, "thought
I could serve him equally well.
Boni and the Gould brothers won't
agree. We both feel that George
Gould will administer the trust with
harsh parsimony. Boni with difficulty will bear this bondage."
Court Opeaed
Montreal Nov. 2.—The court of

If it had been prophesied that
within ninety days alter the death
ot C. P. Huntington his magnificent
properties, which were believed
to be solely under his control,
would be in the hands of his rivals,
the statement would have been received with incredulity. But this,
it seems,isjexactly what has happened. It was the late Mr. Huntington's dream to have built up a veritable empire of transportation.
Perhaps he, more than any other
man, realized the vast resources of
country. He regarded all growth
not from a sentimental or patriotic
point of view, but from an exceedingly selfish and utilitarian point.
Even those who disliked the man
for his unyielding selfishness cannot help but admire the will and
the brain which forced a far-off
road into the position of a dictator.
The man is dead and the Southern Pacific i.s the foot-ball for foreign capital. The Pacific Mail,
which he built up at infinite pains,
is now owned by his deadliest rival
in the transportation world, and
even the Southern Pacific, with its
nearly ten thousand mileage, is in
possession of the same people.
Perhaps there was never so speedy
a scattering of large interests as
that of the hitherto unassailable
Southern Pacific company. There
is a cheeriul belief that the place of
each man can be filled, and that
there lives no man who is actually
indispensable. Mr. Huntington
came very near being indispensable
to the Southern Paiclic, as it existed
under the Huntington regime.
The policv of the late Mr. Huntington has been that of sowing for
others to reap, The Vanderbilts
have enormous capital. They keep
a man constantly on the outlook for
investiments, and it is fair to presume that they will spend money
in the way ol further extension.
The Salt Lake and Los Angeles
road was the last scheme of Mr.
Huntington's. This was intended
to defeat any design thai the Vanderbilts might have entertained to
seek an entrance on this coast.
His death permitted what his life
prevented. The Vanderbilts bave
now a road from ocean to  ocean.

NewYork.Nov. 1.- While workmen were clearing up a cellar formerly occupied by the late Dr.

found to contain the petrified head
and trunk of a girl   12   years   old.
The police made an investigation
and became satisfied that the skeleton was the property of Dr. Holmes
who, it is said, experimented with
an embalming process which he had
used during the civil war, and the
secret of which he died without re-

"No, but I guess it's true, all

Our Gallant
Lord Roberts Pays His
Tribute to Contingent Officers
Rossland, B. C„ November 6,~
The Hag flying at half mast over
the Nickel Plate shaft of the Great
Western mines today signalled that
a fatality had occurred there this
Inquiry at the B.   A.  C.   offices,
from Dr. Reddick the coroner and
from other sources, elicited the  following statement.     Andrew  How-
ick, a mucker, was doing some temporary work at the 500-toot level of
the Nickel Plate vertical shaft, where
a platform had been placed, cutting
off the passage of the skips to  the
ooo-foot  level, or   bottom   of   the
shaft,    Above Howick, at the  400-
foot station,   two  muckers named
Munroe and Baxter  were  at   work
and it is said that   Howick  warned
Munroe that he was at  work below
him and to be carelul to not   allow
any rock to fall on him and also to
keep the cage oil him.     Munro,   it
is said, told Baxter about  Howick,
so that both men were aware that a
man was at   work   100   feet below
and directly under them.     At   the
400-foot station chairs were in   position to prevent the cage  from going any further down.
The men went on shift this morning as usual and about 9 o'clock
Baxter, it is stated, heard as he
thought Howick striking on the
pipe for the cage. Accordingly he
pulled out the chairs and signalled
the engineer to send the skip down
to the 600-foot level. The cage
passed on down and although the
engineer slowed up in passing or
attempting to pass the 5oo-foot station, the cage caught poor Howick
and simply crushed him to death.
The temporary platform of course
held the cage and Baxter, fearing
an accident, went down the ladder
way, only to find the mangled remains of Howick underneath the
cage. Assistance was at once obtained, Howick was brought to the
surface and Dr. Bowes quickly arrived on the scene, but the unfortunate man must have been killed instantly as he was quite dead when
he surface was teached.
Dr. Reddick was notified and
called an inquest for 2 o'clock this
afternoon, it remains to be seen if
the evidence given before the coroner substantiates the story given.
If Howick had wanted the skip sent
down he could have signalled from
his own station to the engineer, but
would have been obliged to go to
the level above to get the chairs
removed so that the skip could pass

bottles of spirits in their hands and

New York, Nov. 2,—The higgest
nugget of gold ever received at the
assay oflice in Wall street, according to Superintendent Mason, arrived yesterday from a mining company in British Columbia. It was
consigned to the New Vork agents
of thc Bank of Montreal. The nugget contained a fraction over 753
pounds of the solid yellow metal,
and is valued at $154,000. It came
in a solid cone, and stood about two
feet high. This cone was wrapped
in canvas and fitted with an oblong
box made of two-inch planks, and
heavily bound with iron. The gold
w is held firmly in the box by two
wooden wedges driven in Irom tbe
top. Two heavy iron rings were
•.et in the sides of the rough box,
and through these were fitted
wooden bars, by which the box was
lifted. It required four men to remove it from the truck in the assay
onice to the scales.
London, Nov. 3.-The Prince of
Wales' dismissal of Tod Sloan is
received with joy by the racing
world of Kngland as a significant
indication of the feeling against
American, jockeys and trainers. Tbe
prince yielded to the popular clamor
while the methods and manners of
a number of self advertising American owners have undoubtedly given
the Jockey Club an excuse for its
present attitude. Sloan is much
chagrined. His retainer was to
have heen ,£5000. He had other
offers of a like amount, but now
the prince has thrown him over, no
English owner is likely to employ
him as first jockey.
Sloan is to return to the United
States November 14, but the story
that he does not intend to applj for
a license bere in 1901 is regarded
as being at least premature. Leigh,
trainer of Frank Gardner's stable,
which Sloan manages, and whose
application tor a license to train at
Newmarket caused so much of the
present trouble, has secured quarters at Epsom. Twenty-six American yearlings have already arrived
there. Rigby will not apply for a
license for 1901, as he is engaged
by Madame Memier to ride in
France. Morgan, Edie and Jones
go to Australia.

The Queen was on the beach

Suddenly a wave overturned the

and be was overcome by the undertow. The queen, who is an expert
swimmer,seeing that he was drowning,sprang into the sea in her clothing before any of her attendants
could prevent her. She swam to

until persons on shore put out in

London, Nov. 5.—The greatest
satisfaction is expressed here because of the refusal of the Queen of
the Netherlands to give an official
reception to ex-President Kruger
upon his arrival in that countr\,and
also because of the action of the

permit any demonstration when Mr.
Kruger reaches Belgium.
The remaining battalion of the
Royal Canadian regiment left for
home today.
It is reported that Kruger is seriously ill on the Dutch warship
Gelderland, on which he is journeying to Europe. This report is probably another version of the recent
report that Mr. Kruger was suffering Irom seasickness.
Pretoria, Nov. 5.—Gen. French

The Rising of Labor,
I Hear in tbe Autumn voices
Of winds ii jnliilant tone.
For tbe beait of tbe world rejoiees
That Labor ahull vlaim its own,
It lias lain in the dust for fli_.es,
By tbe feet of Might downtrod,
Aiid   tlie world stood back nnd sighed,
But this is the Will of God.
He baa put His curse on  Labor.
It, millers for Adam's sin.'"
Rut Truth, like the stroke of a sabre,
Has let the sunlight in,
She has cut down the oieed-made curtain
And shown ua the true Ood's  face.
And it is not dark wiih hatred's mark,
But fair with love's own grace.
He is not the God of classes.
He is not the God of gold.
But He is the God of ibe musses,
Who toil in the heat ami tbe cold,
And unto the heart, of Labor,
D.'Milati'sii'k and nimi •,
He speaks from  the skies and He says,
Forthe day and the hour have come".
And out of its man-made prison,
Out of the ilaik uml tlie dust.
Has Labor at last arisen,
And it cries to Might. "Be   just!"
It wastes no word ami no gesture;
In the calmness of truth it standi!.
It pli'iul -il too long at the ear of wrong
Unheard—and now it commands.
Oh, slow urn GihI's mills in grinding,
"But they grind exceeilim.' small,"
And the greedy of heart shall be  finding
That (imi i.^ thu Goil of all.
They shall lnurii how this Mighty Toiler,
This Maki-r of men uml things
Of earth and star and of worlds afar,
Ranks Labor above crowned kings.
Oh, heart of Labor, keep steady,
And Htaml tor tbe rights you need!
For the wo'ld was never so ready
Tn pray for the fall of greed.
The   waves of our  prayers, like billows.
Shall bear your hojies on their crest,
And carry you outof lhe narrows of doubt
And into tiie hat lior of rest.
—Ella Whei'ler Wilcox, in N Y Journal
This is a bad year  for Oppositions.
Glengarry surprised the world ly
electing a Dutchman.
Now that all th" elections are ovi r
1st all those mining deals go through
that have been on %'it, carpet.
"The man who always kept his
woid" is now sorry that he did not
keep his time and money in tlie same
Should Foley be elected he will be
in good company with Puttee, Ralph

Ladies of Canada:
The world never saw such an exhibition
nf patriotic sentiment as the African war
called forth.
Canadians, Australians and the splendid youth of Natal fought elite by side
with the British tea planters of Ceylon
and India.
Australia drinks the teas of Ceylon and
India, while Canada Strendy drinks their
Black tea. Drinkers of Japan tea should
trv their (ireen teas. Up to date tea
merchants (the SaUda Company for
instance) now sell ihem entirety on merit

The Canadian elections have resulted
in a sweeping victory for the Liberal
party, there having been 123 Liberals
elected, 78 Conservatives, 8 Independents and five places to hear from,
The Liberal majority over all is !I7
and over the Conservatives 13.
In the United States tlm Democrats
were completely snowed under and
McKinley is again elected President
with a bigger majority than four
years ago.
Newfoundland has gone Liberal
by an overwhelming majority and it
ii a case of 1G Liberals to one Conservative.

The inconsistency of the users of
the union label is seen daily even in
this land of unionism. Watch a onion man huying a cigar. Does he look
for the blue label? Nj, he takes whit
the bartender gives him. He talks
unionism dressed in a Hcnh-inade suit
of clothes, sold by some prostitute-
breeding departmental store. He never
looks for a union label on the catalogues sent him by the wholesale by
firms that supply him with snide hats,
l<oots or shirts and who would not give
him credit for a rag to keep him from
freezing. He trains liis children to
look for the arrival of Cheaton'ij price-
list as an event, and their new clothes
come by express marked   "0. 0. D."
Judging from nppearances it would
seem that those only respect the union
label who uae it, and their respect is
limited too often to the particular label that goes with their trade.

The return of the Liberfcls to power
by a large majority will have, undoubtedly, a great efl'ect upon the election in this Riding. From apparently good sources -ve learn that the
Conservative Candidate will probably
drop out of the race and not figure on
thc ballot papers, leaving the fight between Galliber and Foley, The question then that would decide the election would be whether the Conservative voters would throw their strength
