loan invitation pent out bj llio Liberall
to tlioee desirous ol hearing the political
sitnaiioti discnsso:! by S. S, Taylor Q. C.
| of Nelson, and A. L. Silton, o( Calvary.
J. A. McKinnon was called to Uib chair
; and introduced the speakers in a neat |
! speech.
I    Mr. Taylor, who spoke first, contrasted
'the policies ol the Liberal and Conservative parlies in regard to  railroads,  labor
leglalatkra   ami  Chinese Immigration,
pointing OOt that tbe  present  liov'.rii-
iiient was responsible for much wise legislation along these lines.   In referinR to
the candidates lie said that Mr. McKane
bad entered Ior SOtne mysteiioua reason,
not apparent on Il.e enrtsoe,  as  he had
no possible clmi.co Im election.   The labor voter who voted lor the  man only
bad every excuse Ior voting for Mr. Fol-
ev, wi.,) was a good and able man, one
j whom Ins fellow unionists might well be
proud ol; but this was  not a contest of
| persons bat ol principles.    The labor
j voters wore allowing a lack  of appreei-
• j ation by opposing the Government candidate, a government which bad done

concluded  by asking all  lo weigh  the
arguments lie had advanced and if they

ihat Air. tlalbher would receive lhe support he deserved from them.
Chairman McKinuon next called upon
I ..nvoiio who wisl.c I to speak in behalf of
I Mr   I'.loi or Mi. McKane.    No onu rescinding, he then .'rilled ii|ioii   Mr,   Sifton. who met with a hearty reception.
The speaker said that be was not going to appeil to those present upon the
narrow ground* that they must Swot a
< lovernmeot supporter to get justice from
those in poster. The Riding would get
justice in any event, but nevertheless the
influence of a friendly member would be
greater than thst ol a hostile one.  .Mr.
Foley Would be practically alone in tbe
Bouse, if elected, and would be, accor-
ping in hia speeches, an opponent of the
Government. ,\:r, Silton defended his;
ptesence in the Hiding by saying that tbe |
whole West was deeply interested in tbe |
mining region, depending upon it for
their prosperity, and the West was anxious to see a good choice made in Ibis
election. During the nsxl four or flve
Kara Yale-Cariboo would undoubtedly
require and received much more from

The meeting broke up with cheers   for

The mining business does not seem
to be so much of a gamble an it used to
be. To-day the cautions investor has
many ways of proving a property's
wi.ith. The general conditions ol the
formation, the well defined mineral belts,
and modern appliances for the analysis
of rock, all go to secure a guarantee to
tbe Investor that be is at least getting a
fair chance for bis money. Mining men,

I had stepped into the breach and was out
1 to win,   His position was as representa-
1 tive of the Conservative party and their
I principles; the   party   that had done ao
, much in opening up the West by the
11.uildiiig of the C. P. R., an undertaking
j which was spoken ol as impossible  and
i was opposed by the Liberal leaders. The
1 credit for the National Policy, which ban
. lo»tered  Canadian   manufactories and
uiade places for thousands of Canadian
artisans, was due 10 the   partv   that be
j represented.   The Laurier Government
was retained iu power by the  members
Irom Quebec, where Tarte, the Minister
of Public WorKs, had such influence.    It
was this Tarte,  who,  representing the
Canadian people at   the   I'aris   Exposition, bad made pro-French speeches; a
man wu 1 u bo believed to be disloyal to
his country.   If elected,   ho  would   see
that Tarte did justice to British  Columbia, or be "would ent that Taite."
The 8-hour petition which Galliber
signed ami then denied signing was given
great prominence, Mr, McKane reading
tlie various telegrams and documents
relating lo it which have appeared in the
press. One telegram, just received from
Itossland ssid that Gallilier bas auknow-
leged signing two anti-eight-hour petitions.

case for the Lahor Party ha-1 been very
ably presented. Mr. Foley then expounded at some length the principles I

said that the Conservative candidate had
a good deal of cheek to bay that he did |
not believe in it and yet ask the electors j
present to vote for him. The history of!
theC. P. R, construction was cone over
and the facts showing that private ownership was more cot nipt than public
ownership could be. Minister of Kail-
wave Blair aud the Intercolonial Railway came iu for great praise from toe
speaker. If Mr. McKano was such a
friend of tb'labor class as be claimed
to be why did be not resign ami le' the
labor men elect tbeir own candidate? He
had been told that one delegate at Mae-
Neill's nomination carried forty proxies
including four from Slocan City from
delegates who were nev.-r appointed.
He knew that the intelligent voters present would vote on December litb for

not consider Mr. Foley an Independent

From Lakes
to the Ocean
Steel Ship Built Inland
For the Ocean Trade
A Big Scheme.
• Duluth,    Minn.,   Nov.   24.—Arrangements   are  now  being completed    for   the    construction    of
steel ships on the lakes, on a large
scale   for     ocean   service.    These
ships    will    not    be  limited     in
size     to   the    length        of    the
new canal locke.but will be built at
any length wanted by buyers.     Six
or   seven   large    and    completely
equipped yards on the lakes are in
the scheme.    The large ship  builders have now drawn plans for "hips
of from 350 to 650 feet  in  length,
but of no greater   width   than   43
feet, which they have submitted   to
ocean ship owners.    They have   also submitted their designs   to   the
bureau of navagation and it has approved them.    The plan is to  build
in   sections,   ships   of   a    greater
length than the   present  locks will
carry, join  them   together   in   the
ship yard, and run them   down  the
great lakes lo  Montreal  and  then
put them together.    The hulls   will
be built complete at the  lake yards
with a bulkhead at   both   sides   of
the centre line.    The space   at   the
centre between the^ bulkheads will

to those who bave taken up the organization of the Chamber of Mines
for Southern British Columbia to
find that their earnest efforts in this
direction are meeting wilh so good
a success all through the Kootenays

a very large number of applications

Marseilles. Nov. 23.—Ex-Presi-
dent Kruger landed here at 10
o'clock this morning fro^n the
steamer Gelderland.
The 1'reni'h Mreetliia.
Marseilles, Nov. 23--The weather
was beautiful and the Boer leader
received a magnificent demonstration. He appeared to be in good
health and repeatedly took off his
hat in acknowledging the acclamations of the people.
What   Krnaer  Said.
Replying to the addresses of welcome of the presidents of the Paris
and Marseilles committees Mr.
Kruger spoke in Dutch and in a
low voice, but he accompanied his
words with energetic movements of
his hat, which he held in his right
hand. Alter thanking lhe committees for the warmth of the reception accorded him and expressing
gratitude for the sympathy he had
received from the French govern*
ment, he spoke of the war as being terrible and barbarously conducted by the British. He said, "I
have fought with savages, but
the present war is even worse. We
will never surrender, we are determined to fight to the last extremity
and if the republics of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State
lose their independence it will be
because they have lost every man
and child."
The Gelderland was sighted several miles out at 8 o'clock in the
morning and Dr. Leyds and Messrs.
Fischer and Wessels, an interpreter
and Mr. Van Hammel, immediately
pioceeded to the Dutch warship in
a steam launch :<nd soon afterwards
boarded her. A conference of the
Boer leaders ensued. The Gelderland remained behind the island of
the Chateau d'lf, when she steamed
into the outer harbor, firing a salute
of twenty-one guns to which a
shore battery replied.
Mr. Kruger cannot but be elated
at the warmth of his reception by
the people of Marseilles today.
From the moment the white, twelve-
oared barge left the side of the
Gelderland with ex-President Kruger
sitting in her stern, surrounded by
the Boer representatives, the storm
of cheering never ceased until he
entered his hotel. The fighting
declaration which Mr. Kruger made
at the landing stage dispelled at
once any impression that he might
accept a compromise from the Brit
ish government. His announcement
was greeted with a roar of cheers
and cries of "vive Kruger," "vive
les Boers," "vive la liberty." He
repeated the sentiment from the
hotel balcony, where, replying to
the storm of acclamations from the
solid block of thousands of people,
Mr. Kruger said the reception given
him today would do much to sooth
the wounds of his heart. The
Boer, he said, would never sacrifice their freedom. They would
rather be exterminated to the last

London' Nov. 23.—A despatch
from Pekin dated November 22,
"Competent and independent
judges of the present critical stage
of the negotiations opine that the
consideration of all the peace preliminaries should be transferred to
Washington or to a European capital and be placed in the hands of
plenipotentiaries possessed of full
powers to arrange the terms to be
imposed on China. Once the terms-
are agreed on they should be presented as a demand, and not requiring negotiations with the Chinese
commissioners, it is felt that the
present discussions by the ministers
who do not possess the powers to
decide on the multiplicity ol propositions without referring them to
their governments, which hinder
and drags out the preliminaries and
will result in long delays, causing
the greatest uneasiness in the foreign communities, who anticipate
vastly increased difficulty in reaching a settlement, owing to the alleged waste of time."

The case is one ot the most remarkable in the history of Kansas
crimes. Miss Morrison's alleged
motive for the crime was jealousy,
she having been a former sweetheart of Castle, who is a clerk in a
store. Miss Morrison, who is 2(1
years old, is the daughter of Probate Judge M. H. Morrison, and
the family has been prominent in
Kldorado society for years.

British Governments Not to
Join Germany in Demand.
Situation Is Regarded More Serious
In Washington Than
In London.
New York, Nov. 23.—American
dispatches, says the Tribune's London correspondent, indicate that
the Chinese situation is regarded
more seriously in Washington than
it is in London. The theory that the
British government will join Germany in impossible demands on
China is not supported by the fact
as understood in diplomatic circles
in the British capital.
The two powers are working together, but clearly the British government will not persist in demanding an impossibility when the interests of the mercantile community in
England require the restoration of
the normal trade relation.-, vith
China at the earliest possible date.
Premature action by the United
States government in withdrawing
from negotiations will retard that
settlement. The Herald has a

that they had been informed that
the Boxers 'were marching in a

St. Louis Mo., Nov. 2: — News
was received here last night of
the holding up ol the Iron Cannon Ball passenger train, no h-
bound at Gifford Ark, a fev mles
this side of Melvem junction. The
hold up occured at 7530 o ?lock
and was brought about by half a
dozen men. Tbe bandits bad built
a huge bonfire on the track, undoubtedly figuring that it would
cause the engineer to bring the
train to a standstill. He, however,
scenting an attempted tobbery,
opened the trottle and sought to
rush their fiery obstacle. Several
burning ties caught in the pilot and
soon brought the train to a standstill. Instantly three masked men
ordered the engineer and fireman
to leave the engine at once. Another robber went on the side of
the car, hailed the conductor and
ordered him to remain inside.
Each order was obeyed. While
the four robbers were standing
guard and occasionally firing a shot
to frighten the passenger, their two
accomplices entered the express
car and ordered messenge Samuel
Havory to "step aside vi ; ,f in
the corner." The large s.. was
charged five times with dynan.. 1,
each explosion making a terrible
noise and tearing off portions of
the car. A large hole was bored
in the door of the safe, but an entrance could not be effected. 1 he
robbers finally announced that they
had no more dynamite and then
they gave up the task of trying to
force the door. Then picking up
the local express boxes, and sever-
packages, they ran to iheir horses,
which had been hitched near by
and hurried aw . No attempt
was made to distniu or molest the
passengers. The trainsmen say
nbout $500 in the boxes was taken,

Washington, Nov. 27—Recently
the administration has adopted a
waiting policy in the matter of the
Pekin negotiations. No action lias
been taken upon Germany's proposal to make the execution of the
Boxer leaders a condition precedent
to the continuance of negotiations.
The president has decidtd, it is understood, that this matter can well
rest until further developments show
what the German and other governments propose to do. At the same
time Mr. Conger,in accordance with
his instructions, will advocate that
the powers adopt a demand which
the Chinese government  can   meet.

There is one thing p hich cannot he
charged against the successful candidate at nest Wednesday's election
.'imi that is that he won his seat hy
making promises of expenditures or
promises of any Kind for tlie constituency.
Notwithstanding the fact tliat the
people of Yale-Cariboo pay i. greater
proportionate share of taxes into lhe
Dominion treasury than any other
people in the Dominion, tho candidates
one and all, avoided any reference to
this and none promised to see that we,
us a county, m-i-d look to him to see
justice done.
Tho Independi nt candidate told
what he would try to accoiiipl'sh for
the workingmen but told nothing
about what he would try and do fir
the others he would represent equally
as much.
The Conservative, although a mine-
owner and representing the mining
industry, kept away from such topics
as the lead tariff, the smelting industry
and sui'li like subjects, such as he
would be expected to deal with in
Mr. Gailiher expatiated upon what
the Liberals had done for the Marin-
tine Provinces and for Quebec, for the
Northwest and Manitoba, but was
dumb over what had been and would
be done for British Columbia and
particularly Yale-Cariboo.
The constituents here are not grasping or selfish, or they would have
found opportunites to force the candidates hands upon these matters, but
at the same time ofter bearing what
had and would be done for other parts
ofthe Dominion are naturally curious
to know where they get off The
member from Yale-Cariboo is supposed
to do something besides being called
"the member from Yule-Cariboo" and
voting for appropriations for other

We notice in several of our exchanges that the Cham ber of Mines, of
which we publish particulars last
week, has been referred to as tho Ros-
land Chamoer of Mines. This is a
name which tho promoters do not. wish
attached to it, as the Chamber is
intended to embrace all thu mining
districts in southern British Columbia and is only located at Rossland by-
reason of the idea of its establishment
having been conceived there. The
aim of the promoters is to enroll i.s
members all mining men, smelter
operators and claim holders in the
district and to give no one section
prominence over another in the leports
to be sent out There is room in the
Province for a Chamb r of Mines
which will furnish reliable and up-to-
date information of the progress of tbo
mining industry to t}\\e press of
America and Europe as the newly-
created Chamber is preparing to do.
