W. D. Young, who has a fine ranch on
Wolf creek, has had discouraging experiences with his crops' this year, for the
rains have wrought havoc with quite
every stage of growth and garnering.
However, Mr. Young is not in despair,
and yet sees a bright and shining star
on the horizon of the future that will
lead on to fortune.
Applications for the position of teacher

A demented man at Granite creek has
been wandering about for the past month,

Dr. Whillans, there to await action of
the authorities. The name of the unfortunate man is Harry Lee and it is
understood that he had sunstroke some
years ago in the tropics from which he
never fully recovered.
Wm. Knight returned on Monday from
his summer's work on the Transvaal
group. He is more than pleased with
the results both in work accomplished
and the ore showings. From specimens
shown there can be no doubt of values
and as to quantity the claim is a mass of
ore to its extent.   He will go to Kennedy
mountain to do some assessment work
the Invincible after which he will prol
bly strike coastwards for the winter. On
his arrival here and as secretary of the
"Dirty Dozen Club," by order of President Webb, a meeting was called, at
which only the treasurer, 'Pills' Dunsmoor, was absent. All having kissed the

POLITICAL SUMMARY
LIBERAL OUTLOOK
Most Gratifying Reports—Not
One   Discordant   Note-
Calm and  Confident
of   Victory.
From all parts of the Similkameen
riding most hopeful reports come of the
work being done by, and on behalf of,
W. A. McLean, the Liberal candidate.
W. J. Snodgrass and the candidate are
presenting the Liberal cause with earnest
fervor and with very favorable acceptance
to the electors of the southeastern portions of the district. An united front
without a ripple of disaffection, is the
happy condition of Liberalism there and
indeed throughout the whole district-
which spells victory in large letters for
Mr. McLean.
On the basis of a close calculation and
actual solicitation, Fairview, Mr. Shatford's home, and the smaller polling
places in the vicinity, it is estimated,
will give Mr. McLean such a majority as
will offset any doubtful places in this
end of the district, thus leaving the
southeastern portion as a Liberal clei
gain. Hedley is conceded to be largely
Liberal by careful judges on the spot,
while at Princeton the vote will break
more evenly. Authentic information
to the strength of the parties in other
sections has not been received to date but
the indications are that there will be majorities in many if not all of them for
Mr. McLean.
The outlook for the Liberals, not only
in the Similkameen, but for the whole
province is most encouraging and flattering to the cause.
The province is Liberal in Dominion
politics, why   then   should there be
change, seeing that Canada never enjoyed
greater prosperity   than   under present
Liberal rule.
The Grand Trunk Pacific transcontinental railway is a splendid testimonial
of Liberal foresight and business capacity.
If a railway is required in the Similkameen, which no one doubts, entrust the
business and legislative portions of it
the Liberals if it must be economically
and quickly done.
From now until polling day let every
Liberal do his duty and victory will mosl
certainly be their reward.

Mining and Development Co., cam

A Bachelor's Trials.
Bushytail rats are very plentiful this
year, a bachelor rancher having killed
no less than seventeen in his cabin on a
wet day last week. He says the bushy-
tails scared his cat till he left his bed and
board, they elude the trap, refuse poison
and are now busy night and day threshing out what little grain he managed to
save 'between times' this summer. He
has had a rough house on several occa-1
sions in his encounters with them and
they dispute his right to even his own
underwear having destroyed all but one
garment which he saved by saturating
with kerosene. His ranch is for sale as
he is suffering from nervous prostration
caused by the bushytails playing hide
and seek on his bed while he is trying to
slumber. He predicts an open winter as
there is little fur on the varmints and
they are also very lean. Our bachelor
friend has suggested that the government
should put a bounty on Mr. Bushytail
as is done on his relative Miss Coyote, in
any case he will support the government
that will legislate the brute off the earth.
List of Polling Places.
The following is an official list of the
polling places throughout the Similkameen electoral district: Stemwinder
mine, Fairview ; J. G. Thynne's house,
Otter Valley; F. P. Cook's store, Granite
Creek; Court house, Princeton; School
house, Keremeos; W. C. McDougall's
office, Olalla; Nickel Plate mine; post
office, White Lake; school house, Hedley
city; police office, Camp McKinney;
school house, Okanagan Falls; S. H. Sid-
ley, Rock creek; G. O. Guise, Westbridge;
deputy mining recorder's office, Beaver-
dell. 	
Dr. Whillans Removes to Hedley.
Dr. Whillans and family removed to
Hedtey'last week where he is surgeon
awjfphysician to the Nickel Plate mine
and the Yale Reduction works. The
change from here ie an important one
inasmuch as he is now in assurancce of
a stipend commensurate with his profession. He will pay occasional (fortnightly) professional visits to Princeton.
The Dr. and his wife may be termed
pioneers of the town and like all others
in frontier life have had to endure the
inconveniences incident thereto. The
best wishes of many friends go with them
in their new home.
D. McEachren, advance agent for the
W. T. Shatford troupe, was in town
Thursday and gave notice of an exhibition by the great conservative contortionists Murphy & Shatford on Tuesday evening. They say Murphy in his 'big
thunder' act is really eccentric and marvellous.
Jas. N. Paton has gone to Greenwood.
There is an abundance of wild fowl
about, grouse, chicken, duck and geese.
No bachelor's larder is empty now.

THE POLITICAL ISSUE.
As between Liberal and Conservative in the present campaign there
are far more weighty considerations
than the mere triumph of party.
For victory is worse than defeat a
hundredfold if it has not been won
by the suasion of the minds and
hearts of the people in favor of a
great principle or truth. A battle
gained by mere overpowering numbers or sheer brute force is inglorious if not ignominious. And the
man who casts a vote void of the
spirit of truth, or patriotism and
who is actuated only from selfish
.motives commits mental suicide and
is a positive injury to the country
because he has voted against his
conscience.
Now, it is obvious that as between two political parties one must
be right in principle and foundation
and the other wrong. One has the
spirit of right doing and the other
does right only when compelled to,
the first is Liberal and the last is
Conservative, as time and experience have so often proven.
Liberal principles—ever progressive, making and anticipating reforms. Conservative — let things
remain as they are and retain the
old usages and customs of our un-
modern forefathers.
Here then are the forks in the
political trail, and choice must be
made by the electors of Similkameen riding for the first time as a
constituency and for the first time
as political parties. Their first choice
then should be Liberal and right and
no regrets will follow. Putting the
best foot forward is the inclination
of every rational man, and having
made an analysis or made certain
deductions on the relative merits of
the Liberal and Conservative parties
he should without any hesitation
put his best mental foot forward and
openly pronounce himself on the
side of his choice. It is the uncertain or equivocating voter that is:
so ruinous to political purity. A
man deciding on the dictates of
his conscience cannot go amiss.
Hence, it is with an almost positive assurance of victory that an
appeal is made to those who are
reasonable to vote Liberal and for
W. A.  McLean  on  October 3rd.
No men, and especially working-
men, heeding the voice of reason,
can afford to vote for a party that
has little identification with the
workingman such as the Conservative party by record and reputation
is known to be. The mining and
agricultural classes, in fact all engaged in manual industry in the
Similkameen will undoubtedly serve
their interests best, for the various
reasons named, by recording their
votes for the Liberal candidate, W.
A. McLean.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Nearly twenty years of Conservative domination in the B. C. Government : results—forever borrowing money ; poor credit in the
money markets; public lands given
away ; no railroad into the Similkameen, the richest and fairest district in the province; the least efficient and most corrupt official service ever known; political disruption and turmoil and the lower
elements of political life propagated
and fostered until the name " B.C.
Government" has become a byword wherever the English language is spoken.
The man who is a Conservative
■ of any other political faith because of tradition or pedigree is not
much better than a mechanical contrivance.    Think, men !
Another transcontinental railway

The Grand Trunk Pacific will
be built at a cost to the country of
$13,000,000 ; the Canadian Pacific
was built at a cost of $75,000,000
to the country. The first is Liberal
thrift and economy ; the second is
Conservative waste and prodigality.

POLITICAL PABAGRAPHS.
The Provincial Political Pot is Now
Boiling Over.
A rally of two hundred and thirty-seven
of Nelson's electors was the inspiring
augury of success that greeted S. S. Taylor, the Liberal candidate for Nelson riding in his committee rooms. This is by
far the largest rally ever held in the
political history of this city. Mr. Taylor in his speech exposed the record of
the Conservatives in this province and
the weakness of their leaders, and pointed
out the immense superiority of the platform the Liberals offer.
Mr. Taylor made a special point of the
fact that the question now before the
electors was not so much whether Liberals or Conservatives should rule, but
whether or not the present corrupt, timeserving and incapable administration
should continue in charge of this province, which they are already responsible
for bringing to the verge of ruin.
The names submitted to the Liberal
convention for Vancouver city and accepted as party candidates in the forthcoming provincial election are : T. S.
Baxter, barrister; Joseph Martin, barrister; J. D. Turnbull, ex-foreman at the
C.P.R. wharf and member of the U.B.R.
E.; Dr. W. D Brydone-Jack;C. R. Monck,
stonecutter.
With the exception of Hon. A. E.
McPhillips, attorney general, all the
cabinet ministers have uow left Victoria.
The premier has begun his tour at Delta
and will work right up through the several ridings into the Kootenays.
The Conservative convention at Victoria has nominated the full predicted
ticket headed by ex-mayor Charles Hay-
ward, Harry Helmcken, Hon. A. E. Mc-
Ppillips and Joseph Hunter
Conservative Breach of Faith.
Premier McBride's unprecedented
breach of faith in the matter of the elec-
ons threatens to bring disaster in its
'ake. Had the managers of the many
agricultural exhibitions to be held at the
:nd of this month and the first week in
October been aware of the premier's into hold the elections on Oct. 3rd,
they would have so arranged their fair
dates as not to be interfered with by political meetings, political feeling and campaign work. As is many of these annual
which mean so much to a community from a business point of view, will
suffer materially from the clash that must
nevitably result from the change. This
will especially be the case in New West-
ninster, whose fair, the chief annual
;vent of that city, is threatened with ir-
•eparable injury by the change of date ol
the elections. Profound indignation is
that city as elsewhere with the
Government for their ill-conceived trick,
and that they will reap little benefit from
attempt to steal a march upon their
opponents and upon the people of British
Columbia

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    SjTAR
LIBERAL PLATFORM
Hi
2. Government c
provincial and 1
12 Sound Planks Upon Which Literals Will Bally for Victory.
The Liberal platform, as adopted at the
Provincial Liberal   Convention held
Vancouver, is as follows:
1. The immediate redistribution of the
constituencies of the province
basis of population, but allowing a smaller
unit of population per seat for the outlying districts.
aership, Dominion,
cipal, of publi
:s of utilities is sound and should be
carried out in British Columbia,
3. Should it be advisable at
to grant aid to a railway company such
shall be in cash and not in land and no
bonus of any kind shall be given without definite and effective means be ng
taken to safeguard the interests of the
province in the management of the i
control of the freight and passenger
and provision made against such railway
having any liability against it except for
actual cost.
4. Immediate construction of the Coast-
Kooteuay railway, the Cariboo railway,
the extension of the island railway, a
lailway from Alberni to a point on the
east coast of the island, a road in the
northern part of the province from the
coast to the eastern boundary with an
extension to the northern boundary, the
railway from Vernon to Midway by north
fork of Kettle river, with necessary
branch lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcement of the act now in
force compelling the scaling of logs by
government scalers.
6. That such legislation should be
enacted as will result in making the
lands included in the various dyk ng
areas available for cultivation as quickly
as possible and secure prompt payments
of assessments when due.
7. That the government should 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 refineries. No reasonable change should be made in the mining laws without full
interested, giving full opportunity for
discussion and criticism.
8. As the province ca:
by the settlement withi
thrifty and prosperous i
Orientals never become
proper sense of the word,
to be the duty of the government to discourage Oriental immigration and
ployment by every means within
power, and we appeal to our fellow Liberals throughout the Dominion
in our efforts to protect ourselves against
the ruinous competition of men having a
standard of decency and comfort immensely below that of civilized people,
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
is in need of revision. Taxation should
bear upon privilege rather than upon industry, and no addition should be made
to the debt of the province except for
public works properly chargeable to capital.
11. The retaining of the resources of
the province as an asset for the benefi of |
the people and taking effective measures
to prevent the alienation of the public
domain except to actual, bona fide business or industrial purposes, putting an
end to the practice of speculation in connection with the same.
12. The construction and maintenance
of roads throughout the province to aid
in the development of the mining and
agricultural districts.
