RAILWAY COLLISION
C. P. R. Trains Mix   It   Up
Near Kamloops with Fatal Results.

One Person Killed and a   Score Injured—Bluejackets  Chief Occupants of Train.
A fatal collision occurred early Tuesday morning on the C. P. R. nine miles
east of Kamloops in which one person
was killed and some seventeen more or
less injured. From what can be learned it
appears thai,the east bound passenger
train with Jack Tars on board from Esquimau, collided with another train on a
side track, with the result above stated.
SHORTAGE OF COAL.
j
The present shortage of coal, due to
the existing strike of coal miners in the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.'s collieries, in'
Bast Kootenay, now in the seventh week,,
is beginning: to effect the Great Northern
railway, as well as the Trail anrj North-
port smelters, and othe: smelters to some'
extent, says the Phoenix Pioneer. The
Great Northern bas,,it is said, thousands
of tons of eastern coke on the road for
the Granby smelter, that it finds the
greatest difficulty to haul, on account of
shortage of steam coal. In addition,
there are thousands of cars of general
merchandise tied up all over the system
for the same reason. The coal now being
used comes from Sand Coulee, Montana,
but it is poor and there is not enough of
it.

NEW ELECTION LAW.
A late despatch from Ottawa says:
The speech from the Throne at the opening of Parliament on Nov 22, in addition
to reference to the intended tariff revision and an amendment to the Insurance
Act, will promise the introduction of
such legislation as experience has proved
necessary for the perfection 6f the Canada election law. The act, as proposed,
will certainly include clauses of the most
drastic character and penalties for infraction which even the most unscrupulous party workers will hesitate before incurring. Iftheviewof the special committee of last session prevails one feature
will be a clause requiring every qualified
voter to record a ballot in parliamentary
elections on penalty of disfranchisement
for a term of years. This may meet the
case of the man who hasn't time to vote
unless one of the candidates makes it
worth his while.
The expected has happened. McBride journeyed to Ottawa, not to
seek better terms for British Columbia, but rather in search of an election
cry, and he found it. After playing the part of a spoiled child and refusing
to act the part of a statesman, he returns to British Columbia with a high
and lofty air, and is hailed by the Conservative press as a veritable hero.
Haying succeeded*WWirs"rittle scheme, at the expense of the Province, he
now intimates that he will go to the country with the "Better Terms"
motto as the main battle cry.
Although it has not as yet b&en officially announced, the rumor is we.l
authenticated, and the Victoria Week, a paper influenced by Mrs. Jimmy
Anderson,.the woman who is weM known to be in close touch with members of the Cabinet, under date oBNoy. 10th, publishes the following item
bearing on the question: "The Iflberal press has been predicting a Provincial election at any time during this fall. The Colonist said to-day that it
would probably occur within the next six months. The WeeK. ventures a
prediction that an official announcement will be made in less than three
day's, and that the election will taSe place within a mouth thereafter."
The Vancouver Woild further strengthens the   rumor hy publishing  a
Victoria despatch of'the 10th inst, which reads:    "It is semi-officially stated
that the dissolution of the Provincial House will be   announced  next Wednesday, and thut the elections will take place about the  middle  of Decern-.'
her, the faithful having been notified to stand ready."
The campaign may now be considered to be on and it is the duty of every
Liberal and every lover of a good and honest Government to muster and
stand shoulder'to shoulder in the coming fight for the people's rights and
overthrow the gang of looters that hold sway at the Capital. British Columbia will.no longer stand for a Government that is advised and dictated
to by.such a band of adventurers as the Mrs. Jimmy Anderson combination.
When election day comes an opportunity will be afforded to show where
the electors stand in this matter.    Liberals, get in line and do your duty !

Important   Motions    Proposed    and
• Passed re Wellfare of Town-
Adjourns Till March.
The regular annual meeting of the
Princeton Board of Trade was held last
nightat 8 o'clock in the Court House.
Owing to the absence, of President Waterman Vice-President Schon occupied the
chair, with the following members present: Messrs. Campbell, Lyal, Murdoch,
Cowan, aud A. E. Jackson.
Messrs. Cook and B. S. Kennedy were
proposed and elected members of the
Board.
Secretary A. E. Jackson read the minutes of the last'meeting which were
-adopted. i^Li?
The treasurer, H. Cowan' regorted on
the financial condition of the Board,
showing that there were some fifteen
members, and that the funds on hand
amounted to $3.95, outstanding accounts,
$7, and arrears $32.75. The report was
adopted and it was moved and' seconded
that those in arrears be notified and requested to pay up at once.
Mr. Cook moved, seconded by Mr. Murdoch, that the Board draw   up a   resolution asking   the   Government,   through
Mr. Shatford,   M.P.P., to  take  in  hand
the grading and gravelling of the princi- '
pal streets.    Considerable  discussion followed, it being   questioned whether   the-
Government would see their way clear to
expend money for such work  in  a town
owned hy a  private   corporation.    However, Mr. Cook stated he had   made   in-'
quiries along this line and was informed
that it was within the power of the Government to do the work, and he felt sure
the lequest would be granted.
Taking into consideration the fact that
an election was near at had it was looked '
upon by the Board as a most propitious
time to ask favors at the hand of the
Government, the motion was passed
unanimously.
While on the theme of street improvements it was moved and seconded that a
committee be appointed to wait on Mr.
Waterman, resident manager of the
township company, to ntge upon him
the immediain necessity of doing something in the way of sidewalk building.
It was pointed that the streets were in a
disgraceful condition and attention
should be given this matter at once. The
motion was carried arid Messrs^Camp-,

COAL LAND MANIPULATORS
Uunder date of Nov. 8 the Nicola Herald publishes editorially the
following article:    "The  attention

the borders of the Province, and
produce coal, and their books are
subject  to   inspection  every  three

treasury. What we need is a government elected by the people for

and all interested in  th* ™r«ifa«.
and all interested in  the welfare  of
the district is called to an  editorial
comment from the Colonist  which
appears on this  page.    This  company, so called, is, the   Herald believes, a product of the united misdirected energies of  two  Portland
worthies, whose operations on a local coal property  has  already been
criticised in   these columns.    This
property was held   by a   company
termed 'The Nicola Coal and Coke
—— j
100 shares has the right to know at
all times just what the company is
and lasting financial footing. What
the Liberals have done for Canada
as a whole they will do for British
Columbia, and J. A. Macdonald,
the Provincial head of the party, a
man of acknowledged ability and
sound common sense, is the man to
do it. When the time arrives for
the exercise of that most cherished
privilege of a free and untrammeled
doing, and there is no possible wav £„'HI"JS-M<1 ??l'TTM

Government being an interested

any other country. Without going

president and manager,   John   Lamont.    In these columns some time
back the Herald drew  attention to
the guile used by these men in offering shares   in   that   company to
the public and  to   the   statements
made in a most  flowery prospectus
which was issued by them.    In an
interview with a coast  paper representative, John Lamont, in the beginning of the year, made the statement:    'In my home city are four
different companies  holding   interests in   the Nicola Valley, besides
several individuals.    We are about
to organize a strong   development
company to acquire and consolidate
all these   varied   interests.'      Evidently the consolidation has  taken
place and under the   name   of   the
British     Columbia    Amalgamated
Coal Company has acquired the interests of  the  aforesaid   four companies besides the several individuals.    But, in the flowery advertisement of Owen J. B. Yearsley nothing whatever is said about development.    Not only is  this   company
not incorporated under   Provincial
laws but it holds no   title   on   the
lands which it so   enthuses   over.
*    *    *    Here is a  company trying  to  foist, what   under   present
conditions, are worthless shares, on
an unsuspecting public, and  under
the cloak of a reference to the mining laws of the   Province, endeavor
to mislead and cajole   their   dupes
into believing that the  company is
incorporated under the laws of this
Province." ^^^^^^

not yet taken the step toward complying with the law."
We take it for granted  that  tbe
Colonist and the Herald know what
the}' are talking  about when they
charge the British Columbia Ama-
gamated Coal Company with  such
a   serious    offence    as    obtaining
money under   what   is   practically
false pretences.    If this company is
doing business and selling shares to
the unsuspecting public in  a   company that is not properly registered
under tbe laws of the  Province, it
seems to us that it is up to the Government to take action in the  matter and protect the public from such
unscrupulous fakirs.    If a  Provincial law is not being complied with
it is only fair to presume that   the
Provincial authorities have a  remedy, and if that remedy is  not  applied it should be.    A government
is supposed to   make   and   enforce
laws in   the interests   and   for  the
protection   of the  public.      When
it fails in this its usefulness is gone.
Unfortunately   for   the   people   of
British Columbia they have at  the
helm a government that   has   long
since forfeited its right to  the con
fidence of the people, a government
that has shown its  preference   for
grafters, male and female, and  lent
itself to the furtherance of schemes
to do the public out of   their  just
rights.    We say the  present   government,   "the   first   Conservative
government British Columbia ever
had" (and it should ''be\ the   lkst) i nerof w.j."Feather _„,...._„ ,„„,*

HON. W. S. FIELDING
Re-Elected   for   Queen's  and
Shelburne After Hot
Contest.
Conservative   Candidate   Completely
Snowed Under—Attempt to District Minister Fails.
After one of the most strenous fights in
the history cf political contests in   Nova
Scotia. Hon. W. S. Fielding was re-elected in   Queen's and Shelburne  on Wednesday, Oct. 31st, by an   overwhelming
majority,   and   Dr.   Weldon,   who   was
forced upon the constituency by a faction
of   malcontents   in    Halifax, who   have
been pursuing the Minister for two years,
■'£i$j?:  barely escaped   with   his   deposit.    Mr.
Fielding had a majority of 1,026 in a  total vote of scarcely 4,000.    The total vote
• was:    Fielding, 2.529; Weldon, 1,503.
The electors of Queen's and Shelburne
resented the campaign of slander and
misrepresentation conducted by the Tory
partv. They have vindicated Mr. Fielding, and in honoring him they have
honored themselves.
Mr. Fielding asked for a free, untrammelled verdict, and the  Liberal  party of
the riding content themselves   with   the
reflection  that   everything   possible was
done by them to   prevent   violations   of
the law.    The campaign  proves also that
unless armed as of yore with  all   human
devices the   Tory party cannot- hope   to
win elections, and to a large extent  it  is
corroborative of the statement made  by
the Toronto News    that  fully ten  thousand dollars was spent in 1904 in   the  endeavor to compass  Mr. Fielding's defeat.
MARRIAGE   CENSORSHIP.
'   A late   Chicago despatch   says:    We<
ding bells will ring only for those happy
young persons who succeed  in   passing a
btate inspection test it  the ideas   of   the
American   Stock   Breeders'   Associatior
are   carried   out.     The association   has
turned for the moment from the   consideration of cattle, sheep, and hogs to   the
culture of hogs, and it will  be   the   ultimate business of the Committee   of  Eugenics, just appointed, to   keep   an   eye
out for ill-mated pairs.    A  marriage censorship may result if the inspection idea
provej practicable.
Professor Charles R. Henderson of the
University of Chicago Sociology Department, is a member of the committae, of
which Dr. Alexander Graham Bell is
chairman.
The immediate object of the committee
is to spread information in regard to.the
ill effects of the marriage of defective
persons. Insane persons, confirmed
drunkards and moral degenerates are to
be restrained in colonies and kept from
marrying.
THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
Rev. A. J. Fowlie, Presbyterian minister stationed in Princeton about a year
ago, and now of Coldwater, was shot last
week in the leg while duck hunting on
Georgian Bay.
Princeton is rather a difficult  place for
a Chinaman to reach from Midway.   The
proprietor of a  hotel in that   town   sent
here for a cook.    The Chinaman engaged
commenced his   long  journey by stage,
but when it reached the  point where the
road enters the U. S. to avdid the mountain, of course the Chinaman  had  to   get
off, as he was not anxious to be captured
and deported.    The   only  way to   catch
the stage again on Canadian soil   was  to
take an atl-uight trip on foot   and   alone
over the mountain, which he started  out
to do.    Whether he   made   the   trip   in
safety or not we have  not   heard.—Midway Star.     The Chinaman   in   question
reached   here   last   Saturday apparently
none the worse for bis somewhat strange
experience.

The Vermillion Forks Co. have the  coal
and we have   the   stoves.    Call   in   and i
look the stock over at  the  A. E. Howse I
Co. Ltd.
One of our citizens who   occasionally
wipes the   dishes   for   his   wife, became
tired of the job and   refused, saying  that
"it is not a   man's work."    Not   feeling
disposed to lose his help she   brought the
Bible out to convince him   of his   error
and read as follows from II Kings 21-13:
"And will wipe Jerusalem as a  man wip-
eth a dish, wiping it and turning it   upside down."    It is  needless   to   say that
he is still doing his occasional stunt.
How about a nice new suit? Call in
ana see the samples of Twentieth Century Clothing at the A. E. How:e Co. Ltd.
