The Conservative convention held
at Revclstoko on Friday and Saturday was quite a harmonious affair.
About 100 delegates were present, besides Hon. Mr. Burden and party.

Houston president, and R. F Green
a member of tho executive. The

That the policy of the party in
in matters of provincial roads and
trails, ownership and control of railways, and the development of agri
cultural resourciS, as laid down in
tho platform adapted in October,
1899, is hereby reaffirmed.
That to encourage the mining industry the taxation of metalliferous
mines should be on a basis of percentage of net profits.
That the government ownership of
telephone systems should be brought
about as a first step in the acquisition of public utilities.
That a portion of every coal area
hereafter to be disposed of should be
reserved from 6ale or lease, so that
state owned mines may be easily possible if their operation becomes necessary or advisable.
That in pulp land leases provision
sliould lie made for re-foresting, and
that steps sheuld be taken fssr the
general preservation of forests by
guarding against wasteful destruction of liui her.
That the lesrislatu:--* and the {-ov
ernnvnt; of the province should persevere in their efforts to secure the
ex'-tusion of Asiatic, labor.
That the matter of better terms in
the way of subsidies and appropriations for the province should be vig-
arously pressed upon thc Dominion
That the silver lead industries of
the province tie festered nnd encouraged bv the iiiiixisition of Increased
customs duties on lead and lend pro
ducts Imported into Canada, and that
the Conservative members ofthe Do
minion house lie urged to support any
motion introduced for such purpose.
That as industrial disputes almost
invariably result in great lois and
injurv both to ths parties directly
concerned and to the public, legisla
tion should be pressed to provide
means for an amicable adjustment of
such disputes between employers and
The old platform clauses nre:
To actively aid in tho construction
of trails throughout* the undeveloped
portions of the province, and the
building of trunk roads of public necessity.
To adopt the principle of govern
ment ownership of railways in so far

will admit, and the adoption of the
principle that no bonus should be
granted to any railway company
which does not give the government

thoroughly, tho results proving far
ahead ef their expectations. While
hero Messrs. Krapp and Wunsch displayed great aptitude in eliciting Information as to the resources of the
countrv, and expressed themselves
as being delighted with the outlook
before the campnnd the kindly treatment accorded them. As to their
own investments, they are fully satisfied and are confident of good returns. They gave assurances that
the ramifications of their several or
ganizations here would be on a large
scale in the future, realizing benefits

Black I'rince Crosscut Gets tke Ore Hody
at Depth.
The ledge has at last been encountered in the long crosscut on the
Black Prince and the results are eminently satisfactory. Sidney Norman
the manager, stated before leaving
for Spokane on Saturday that the
other wall had not yet been on-
countered and it looked as if the ledge
would be fully as wide as on the surface, which is 25 feet. On the hanging
wall six inches of galena ore mixed
with quartz had boon met with, and
five feet farther on another streak 18
inches vide had been cut. This last
carried galena free from zinc and
literally plastered with native silver
and copper pyrites,making it certain
to be high grade. Tliey were then
pushing on to thc foot wall and
hoped for another good chuto. The
gangue matter and ore streaks are
akin to the Arlington article, being
very ailicious.
When the other wall was encountered it was the intention to drift
both ways on the vein and open it up
in thorough shape, Later on the
company would instal sinking machinery and follow the ore bodies
down, so avoiding long crosscuts. A
hundred pound sample of the ore will
be tested by the Elmore oil process at
Mi*. Norman has sinee told the Spokane Review that an upraise is to be
run 127 feet, connecting the lower
with the upper workings. If the
present ore bodies prove permanent,
the mine will then be in a position to
become a steady shipper. Within
the next few weeks the property will
be surveyed, preparatory to applications for crown grant, Application
his been made to the provincial government, for a grant to improve the
trail between the mine and the Arlington wagon road, and the result
ofthe appeal will be known in a
short time. If the application is denied it is probable that all shipment*
will be held back until a new trail
ean be built to connect with the present government road down Six Mile
creek. This will make Nelson the
headquarters for operations, will eb-
viate tho necessity of crossing the
divide between Lemon and Springer
creeks, and will give the advantage
of an outlet accessiblo to both the.
(treat Northern and Canadian Pacific
Mr. Norman expresses himself as
more than satisfied with the result of
recent development and believes that
the Black I'rince is now on a fair way
to make a big mine.

works arid to that end is contracting
with all the mines in the Slocan having the desired article. His negotiations are meeting with favor from
the mine owners, as it enables them
to get rid ot wliai lias been considered a negative product. The prices
obtained from the Kansas works are

IT was n morning of glad sunshine
nnd soft skies and singing birds,
but  Mr.   Bowser got   up  feeling
logy.    At breakfast he hnd  little
appetite, nnd he drugged his legs ns hn
went up stairs, nud Mrs. Bowser linn!
ly said:
"1 think you ought to let up on smok
Ing tor a week or so and get the nico

"Whnf hns smoking to do with It?*
he at once demanded.
"I think you smoke t„o much. It
may be, however, that you huve grown
too fat ngnln."
"Too fat ngnln! When wns I ever too

tro fat on me, and you know It. You
seem to want to pick n fuss this morning."
"I don't wish tluit. of course, but if I

Mr. Bowser looked ut his tongue ln
the glass over the mantel, dallied with
n pimple on his chin and finally turned
und observed:
"Wbat's tho mntter with me is thnt
spring ls bere, nnd I need an old fashioned tonic made of roots. It's worth
forty times anything a doctor can pr»>
seribo. I used to always dig the roots
for mother wben 1 was a boy. She
made a sort of beer of It, and It wns
the greatest thing for tbe blood you
ever saw."
"Well, you might engage a farmer to
dig you 3ome roots," suggested Mrs.
Bowser. though feeling certain in advance of bis answer.
"I think I see myself! I don't cnre to

lo do Is to tako the day off anil go out
nrtor my own roots. 1 wart dandelion,

"Yes, n thousand or more," he sar
castlcally replied after a glare at b-r.
"If you didn't tnke advantage of every
possible occasion to en 11 nn* a rede of

the consequences."
Mrs. Bowser hnd nothing further to
sny, while the cnt sat up with a solemn look on her face, and Mr. Bowser
donnesl an old suit of clothes nntl got
ii basket und a spade nnd Blurted out
on bis trip. He looked quite bappy as
be fairly got started, nnd he paid '-o
attention to the two or three wicked
boys who yelled ufter him anil wanted
to know if be was going out to dig for
woodobuoks. A yellow car was soon
speeding hlin countryward, and bis

He woultl bavo gone on looking for

nnd Journeyed on. spring was certainly at bund. He saw robins flirting,
and he found miidhulvs twenty feet
across. He saw lambs frisking and fell
oft ii fence and split his coat up the
back. The buds were bursting into
blossom and the niendows tatting on a
vivid green, but these things were
somewhat offset by an old one* horned
cow running lilin nlong the highway
for n quarter of u mile and splashing
bim with mud from head to heel. It
was only after nu hour's walk that Mr.
Bowser gained the primeval forest. It
was primeval because there wns us
much ns three acres of it, nnd the
acres were under mortgage altogether
nnd under wnter to n large extent.
However, It was in the primeval forest
tbat bo used to dig rools when he was
n bounding boy, nnd He looked iiround
him with expectancy. The mud dried
on his eyebrows und the wnter squashed out of his shoes ns lie searched
iiround, but he didn't permit those
trilling Incidents to Interrupt the harmony of tbe occasion. It wns only
when be paused belore u milkweed

knowledge of rootolog.v. He was digging It up to see whether It wns sarsa-
pnrilln or sweet flag when tbe old
farmer wbo owned the primeval, subject to mortgage, cniue that way looking for a stray hog.
"What ye lookin' for?" be queried,
with suspicion In his tones.
"Boots." brusquely replied Mr. Bowser—"roots to mnke a spring beer for
the blood."
"And   do   ye   want   milkweed   and
skunk's cabbage  to make yer tonic?
Them's the only kind ns grows around
here.   Who be ye anyhow?"
"My.nnme is Bowser."
"I   never  heard  of It  before,  hut 1

I I'd be mud: obleegt-tl to ye If ye'd root

"1 want to tint! some spring roots."
j protested Mr. Bowser us he choked bis

"Y'es, I may liev." replied the farmer,

Some years ago Huddersfield was eial paralysis. St. Vitus' dance
prohibited by the Government from
turning its sewage into the River
Oolne, which in consesmence of sewage had become polluted antl offensive. The ratepayers of Huddersfield

sewage disposal plant, which, in addition to improving the health of the
town, turns back a clear stream ol
water into the river.
Summing up the whole situation,
Mr. Woolger of that city, who was
recently touring In Canada, says that
while these municipal enterprises are
now bearing somewhat heavily on
the ratepayers, the expectation is
that they will shortly lighten the
rates by their pronto. Huddersfield
is one of the most progressive towns

It will be asked, why should lhe

of the doings of tflP House? Is it
not, in view of the reports published in the mornin- newspapers. a
Shear work of supererogation? The

that journal His Majesty often finds
as ninny as ten or twelve columns

J. H. Watson.ef Vancouver.speei'a!
.organizer of the Dominion Trades 4
Laber Council, takes exception to
The Drill's criticism of Ralph'
Smith. Ina ion**; screed he denies
The Drill's story and then launches
into a tirade of abuse ef the Socialists.
It ia all very well for Mr. Watson to
rant, bnt the facts are against him.
The miners of Nanaimo have voted
against further affiliation with the
Dominion Trades & Labor Council;
and Mr. Smith's love for tbe Independent Laber cause was exhibited
by his celebrated Kamloops speech in
•the Foley campaign two years ago.
The miners ef Kootenay will never
-forgive Smith for his conduct then.
As for the Socialists, they will doubtless attend to their own knitting as
against Friend Watson.
Postmaster-GeneraI Mulock has returned from England and gives him
self ont as a firm believer in government ownership ef all public utilities.
He says matters in Canada are today
shaping towards that end, and th.-.t
jin time there will be complete government ownership. Furthermore
/he asks, "What is the matter with
Socialism if it is on a good foundation ?" Minister Blair has long been
an advocate ef government ownership of railways. Minister Tarte believes lhat manufacturers in certain
lines are not getting nearly the protection they should have and favors
a higher tariff. He also lays down
the maxim of Canada for the Canadians. These are samples of what
is known as Progressive Liberalism
and the new teachings go down with
the bulk ofthe faithful, though to the
.old greybeards of the pairty the
ideas are rank heresy and little short
ef treason. With many Liberals

The  one  objection   to   be raised
against the  Conservative   platform
adopted at the Revelstoke convention
is its lack of definite and clear-cut
pronouncement.  The various planks
are hedged around with vague and
.uncertain language, but no one can
deny that the subject matter In each
admits of great strength, carrying
with them the elements of success
and abiding good,   lt would have
more fully met the situation in the
province had the platform come out
fixedly for absolute government ownership ef public utilities,compulsory
arbitration, and   tbe exclusion   of
Asiatics.   These three principles in
.themselves would prove winners all
along the line, and they are what the
people wants, deplte thc efforts ef
.politicians who use obscure language.
The platform as it stands is abont on
a par with that of the Liberals, and
has much of an affinity to the articles
,of faith of the P.P.P.'s.   Se much in
accord Are the three that one would
think the same hand had to do with
the shaping of each.   There can be
no doubt that the people of British
Columbia want a modern and progressive policy and they will stand
for no shuffling.   The Conservatives
have as good working material in
their lumber yard as the Liberals,
