on Behalf of tbe Conae rvntlve Candida ti' I.im I Meeting uf the Campaign
—Everybody tnvii.il.
The Conservatives will wind up their
campaign here by a grand rally in the
Music Hall this (Friday) evening. R.
W. Hanniugtou, of Nelson, who made
such a telling impression here in the
provincial campaign, is to be the principal speaker of the evening, taking
the platform on behalf of tho Conservative candidate, Hon. C. H. Mackintosh. The speech will be a good
one aud the electors will have the issues of the campaign presented in a
clear and lucid manner. Opposition
speakers are invited and the ladies
will be cordially welcomed. Everybody should turn out aud witness the
fun.
Vlt.lt Ki.ili-il In Death.
W. F. Crage, who, with his wife,
arrived here a month ago from Loudon, Eng., on a visit to his brother-in-
law, L. J. Edwards, station agent,
passed away on Saturday morning, a
victim of consumption. The body was
enbalmed and taken to Revelstoke on
Tuesday, interment taking place next
day, under the auspices of the Masonic lodge, of which deceased was a
charter member. Mr. Edwards and
Mrs. Crage accompanied the remains.
Mr. ami Mrs. Crage formerly resided
in Revelstoke, but for the last five
years had liv«d in England. The
visit here was iu the hope that the
mountain air would restore the sick
man to health and strength, but the
long journey proved too great a straiu.
Deceased was 37 years of age and
leaves a widow to mourn his loss.
It flaw i cit Wain Kace.
Walter Ilenwick.the Slocan sprinter,
ran a 100-yard footrace last Thursday,
at Nelson, with T. Mitchell, of Fernie.
The start was a mutual consent and
the purse $500. Mitchell got the best
of the start, but Renwick soon caught
him, winning out. by a close margin.
So close was it that a wrangling
match followed, and it was some time
before the money was paid over, one
of the judges voting nay. A Dumber
of the sports went dowu from here.

money, even at odds, the Fernie men

It was encountered in the 125-foot
level from the shaft and in 1250 feet.
It consists of 15 feet of solid galena,
of the highest grade yet encountered
in the mine. The ore is 1200 feet
vertical from the surface. The St.
Eugene has double the ore reserves it
had three years ago.
IMPROVEMENTS AT OTTAWA.
New Ore Bouse Built and Telephone Sy«-
tem Installed.
More improvements are being effected at the Ottawa and the mine is
lieing kept strictly up to date. Lumber has been going up all week for a
new ore house, which is being built at
the mouth of the No. 5 tunnel. It
will be larger than the others up
above, as it will have more ore to accommodate, both veins at that level
promising extensive bodies of mineral.
During the week a drift was commenced on the Noble, or west, vein, at
the No. 5 level, and it is expected
some pretty handsome ore wiil be taken out. There was eight inehes of a
paystreak to commence on.
Manager McPhee states his company has secured a water right ou
Springer creek, adjoining the Arlington grant. Power derived therefrom
will be utilized next summer for driving machine drills at the Ottawa, and
also for operating a powerful hoist. It
is on the cards to sink a deep shaft
next year, so as to reach their lower
ground. Property owned by the Arlington shuts off the Ottawa people
from any more tunneling farther down
the hill.
Another improvement added to the
mine is the installation of a telephone
system, connecting with the office in
town. W. Clough aud P. Swan are
installing the phones and stringing
the wires, the old Koch system to Ten
Mile lieing utilized as far as the Ottawa road, aud a new wire strung up
from there. The system will prove of
great service and convenience.

Tlia Ymi.- ia Improving.
According to the Herald, recent developments at the Ymir mine have
been of a most satisfactory nature,and
every confidence is felt that the theory
of the eastern trend of tho pay ore
will shortly be established. Better
ore is now being encountered ou the
KKK) foot level, and it is expected
that another 60 feet will bring the
drift on this level into as good ore as
any on the upper levels. The theory
of the eastern trend has already been
established on the No. 6 level, where,
in the'east drift, good pay ore is now
being worked. At present 40 stamps
are iu operation, nnd when sufficient
water can be secured the remainder of
the 80 stamps will be put in commission.

WEUSK8DAVI MEETING.
On Wednesday evening the Liberals
held a meeting in the Music Hall, D.
Arnot acting as chairman. The attendance was not large, owing to the
rain. Smith Curtis, Rossland, was
the principal speaker; Rev. Mr. Hol-
man. Nelson, spoke for the Socialists;
and F. Richardson, a Victoria drummer, also took part. The feature of
Mr. Curtis' speech was a fierce attack
on the Socialists, he handling them
without gloves. His opponent gave
him n warm reply. At times the expressions used wero coarse and the
comparisons drawn distasteful. As a
vote-winner the meeting was of a most
negative, order.
Mr. Curtis first dealt with the Con
servatives aud their policy aud contended that the Liberals' conduct of
affairs was best suited to the needs of
the country. He ridiculed Mackintosh's recently published appeal and
characterized it as meaningless and
childish. The Socialists' belief was
visionary and idealistic, while their
schemes were indefinite and impracticable. People didn't need to be Socialists to believe iu government ownership. Socialism uever would take
deep root under the British (lag, for
British laws were based on equity and
justice. Liberals being progressives,
the Socialists should vote for them.
Laurier was an empire builder. When
the Man of Nazareth was ou earth he
was misunderstood and reviled, yet
his work had told; so.too.with Laurier.
Rev. Mr. Holman made an offhand
reply, but roused much enthusiasm
among his followers. He scathingly
rebuked Mr. Curtis for comparing
Laurier to Christ, and said Socialists
would vote for their own man. Judging by Slocau, Socialism had taken
deep root under the British flag.
F. Richardson took the stump as a
Liberal and made a plunge against
Socialism. He drifted into music hall
burlesque and effectually killed the
meeting, many people leaving the
hall.
Mr. Curtis' reply to Mr. Holman
was that tho Socialist propaganda was
indefinite and offered nothing practical. They were dreamers. Many of
their statements were most pernicious
and the peoplo would not stand for
theni.
Very few were in the hall at the
close   of   the   meeting, which  ended
without demonstration or singing.

It is pleasing to note the Enterprise
again in the shipping list, it having
sent out a car of ore on Saturday to
Trail. Thc Ottawa forwarded one car
to Nelsou and has a .second car ready
to go out. The Club has been delayed
with its shipment, owing to the sear-
city of horses to pack tha ore. When
sleighing comes a number of smaller
properties intend shipping, having
ore piled on the dumps. The outlook
for the winter is encouraging. Week's
output 42 tons; total for year 20515
tons.
For 1903 the ore shipments from
the local division amounted to 1889

SCIATICA  CURED
Another   Triumph   For   Dr,
Williams* Pink Pills.
Mr Etsoll.of Wiilkcrton, Suffered for
Months nnd ilui mi Belief Until
he Began the Dso of These
Tills.
Of the many employees of K Tru-
nx & Co.. V^nlkcrton, Uut.. none
stands higher in Hie confidence of
his employers than does Mr. Thos.
J. Ktseil. lie i.s an excellent mechanic, and has been in the employ
of this firm for upwards of ten
years, llut although Mr. Etsell now
ranks among the few men who are
never absent from their oust of duty,
the time was when lie was as often
absent as present, iill because of his
physical Inability In perform his
work. I'or years Mr. Ktseil was a
great sufferer from sciatica, und at
times the suffering became so intense
that for days lie was unable to leave
the house.
During thoso years, 7,ir Etsell, as
may readily lie imagined, was continually on the lookout for some
remedy that would rid him of tho
disease, hut for a long I imo without
.SUCCOSS. Doctors were consulted and
although he took the treat ment pre-
BCrlbed, il did not help him. 'I'lien
h'' tried elect lie t real ment. hut this
nlso failed tn give relief, und in
despair he had about made up his
mind thai his case was hopeless and
that be would lie a suffering, helpless cripple lo the end of his days.
Then one day a neighlior advised
him to Iry Dr. Williams' I'ink l'ills.
At first he refused, believing they
would prove like oilier medicines,
hut lhe neighlior was so insistent,
havillg herself lieen greatly benefited
liy these pills, so Uml at last, he consented. 'I'he remainder1 of the story
may hest  he told in his own words:
"Whetl I begun taking these pills,"
said Mr. Etsell to a reporter of the
Telescope, "1 had been olT work for
three months. The cords of my right
leg were ull drawn up. and I could
only limp about with the aid of my
slick. The pain I suffered was terrible. I could not sleep at nil during the night, and I was in misery
both day and night. At lirst I
thought the pills were doing me no
good, but afler I had taken six
boxes I fancied I was feeling better,
and was encouraged to continue the
treatment. . Afler that I got better
every day, and by the time I had
taken ubout fifteen boxes every vestige of pain had disappeared. For
over a year," continued Mr. Etsell,
"1 have ■ not had a. twinge of pain,
nnd although 1 am forty years of
ngo I feel as well as when I was
twenty. I'ink Tills cured me. and I
have no hesitation in announcing
them th" best medicine in the world
for sciatica."
The euro of Mr. Etsell proves that
Dr. Willi.mis' I'ink Tills are not nn
ordinary medicine, and that their
power to curo in all troubles of the
blood or nerves places them beyond
all other medicines. You cun get
these pills from any medicine dealer
or direct by mail at 50 cents a. box
or six boxes for $2.50 liy writing

wrapper around every box.
VIOLIN  MOODS.
l.ittle   Ihi ii k» That   Make an   Instro-
ina'ii4 Lose  Ita Tune.
Some obscure but definite change
taken place in the material of the body
of a violin through the vibrations of
lhe music produced, and it ls very possible that some stages of this change
ure detrimental to the tone. The style
of playing is suid to Influence the
change, und rest checks it.
The maturing of a violin hns been
compared with the growth of a child
who progressively increase* in wisdom
nnd stature, but has stapes of weakness due to the Irregular •♦.evolopinout
of parts.
The tone of an insfrniioiit is also
gravely Influenced by the setting up of
ihe movable parts, the sound post, the
strings, the bridge and even the pegs.
Many Instruments lose much of their
power or sweetness if the sound post
ls altered a fractional amount from its
best position and angle, If the bridge Is
Inclined » little more or less or shifted
or if the strings are uot exactly suited
to the violin. Some Instruments prefer
one pitch and others another, mui all
vary with the weather. In addition lo
this the best players have moods when
they cannot play, and the Instrument
Is often blamed for these.
CHINESE LANGUAGE.
The   Moat   Intricate   and   Cnmbroua
Vehicle of Thought  Extant.
Chinese has beeu described ns "the
most Intricate, crabrous and unwieldy vehicle of thought that ever
obtained among any people." There
are eighteen varieties of it, besides tbe
court dialect, and until recently no
European knew more than three of
those fluently, while it may be doubted whether nny Chiuaman ever fully
understood tbem nil.
Iu wbat is commonly called Chinese
there are 30,000 recognized written
character, yet tbere is no alphabet
and practically no grammar. Even
tbis immense number of characters
may be indefinitely extended, for a
learned Chinese scribe, if lie does not
know a sign which he thiuks entirely
suitable to the word he desires to express, coins one. There is a Chinese
printed book in the British museum
witb thirty-two different samples of
these fancy characters.
Basque is tbe most difficult of European languages to acquire, chiefly because of the arbitrary adoption of extraneous words into its sentences. This
character marks no other European
tongue, but it is one which nlso renders American Indian languages very
troublesome to learn. Gaelic ls nlso
difficult, for it has no afflrinative and
no present tense.
A POSTOFFICE  BABEL.

Singapore is the only British post-
office which employs letter carriers for
each language. Within tbat city there
are so many different races who receive correspondence addressed in their
own vernacular writing that proper delivery is extremely difficult.
So hard Is it that iu some districts it
has been found necessary to send the
postmen upou their rounds in sets of
three.
One of these is a Malay in charge of
all packets for Europeans, Jews, Armenians, Malays, Arabs, Parsees and
Japanese, which aro presumably addressed in European script or in writing akin to it. The second of the trio
is a Chinaman, who deals with correspondence bearing Ideographic characters, while the third is a Tamil, who
takes out letters addressed in the writing of his own race as well as any in
Telegu and southern Indian writing.
These cosmopolitan postmen hnve, of
course, often to consult each other as
they deliver the mails, but sometimes
even their varied linguistic attainments
have to be supplemented by a Sikh
who understands lliudoostnnee, Persian and northern Indian characters.
THE-CAUSE OF SURF.
Why Waves   lliiav.  Become Break-
era  In  HhulloiT  Water.
Long and oscillatory waves ruu by
gravity, the first agitating the water
to nearly the same amount at all
depths, while the chief disturbance duo
to the latter confines itself to the upper
layers of the water.
These oscillatory waves, the most
typical example of which is perhaps
furnished by the "swell," or regular
rolling waves which continue to run in
deep water after a storm, will break
on a shelving shore whon their height
is about equal to the depth of water.
When the depth is sullicient to allow
the oscillations to proceed unimpeded
no progressive motion takes place, each
column, being kept iu its place by the
pressure of surrounding columns.
If, however, free oscillation is prevented, as«jjy the interposition of a
rock or by the shelving of the shore,
the columns in the deep water are not
balanced hy those in the shallower,
and thus they acquire n progressive
mot ion and form "breakers." For this
reason waves always break against
the shore, whatever Is the direction of
the wind.

Death Dearly always ensues from
cessation of the heart's action, whatever it may be that causes it to slop.
Almost lhe only exception to lliis rule
is in the case of poisoning with prusslc
ncld, where the whole body becomes
dead before the heart censes to 1 1.
it is scientifically certain Unit almost all deaths, even those that are
Boemlngly most agonizing, nre practically without pnln. The fear of extinction may cause mental agitation
amounting to pain while consciousness
exists, but thnt is quite another thing.
In death liy bu ruing pain censes nl an
early stage by suffocation, while a
inun killed by a gunshot wound probably docs not know Ihnt he has been
hit, the action of the bullet being more
rapid thnn the messago to lhe brain
announcing it. Tor this reason wounded men Sometimes drop without knowing why.
In chest diseases pnln Is relieved by
suffocation at the death mopient, and
In fevers thu nervous system becomes

SUFFERED TORTURE j
FOR FOUR YEARS.
Then Dodd's Kidnoy Pills Cured Wirt. Doeg's Rheumatism.
He was so Had That He Could Not Lie
Down, Hut Had to Sit Night and
Day in a Chair.
Sundridge, Out., Nov. 7.—(Special).—.Mr. William Doeg of this
placo, now a hale, hearty man, tells
of his almost miraculous curo of Rheumatism by using Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"For lour years I suffered excruciating torture," says Mr. Doeg. "1
was scarcely an hour free from pain.
1 could not lie down to take rest, bjut
had lo e>it night and day in a chair.
"I tvfes treated for Rheumatism by
several doctors and ulso tried several
medicines without receiving any benefit, Almost in despair 1 feared I
never again would bo free from pain.
Then 1 read of some remarkable
cures by Dodd's Kidney l'ills. I procured a I'ox and soon found they
were doing me good, and beforo i
had finished the second box I was entirely free from pain and a now
man."
Dodd's Kidney l'ills always cure
Rheumatism by putting th'' Kidneys
in shape to take the cause—Uric
Acid—out. of the blood.
INFLAMMABLE AIR.
The
Product     Dr.     Hale*     DlatlUed
From   Cool   In  1720.
In the early days of the last century
Sir Walter Scott, writing from Loudon
to a friend in Kdinburgli, said, "Thero
is a fool here who ls trying to light the
city with smoke." Sir Walter's "smoke"
was not a human invention. Accumulations of gas from coal beds found
their wny to the surface nnd, being
highly inflammable, attracted the attention of men who erected altars over
tbem, and their perpetual fires were
dedicated to the gods. For thousands
of years the Chinese-have speculated
upon.the meaning of the natural gas
which has escaped abundantly from
the earth in several provinces. Iu 172(3
Dr. Hales informed chemists that by
distilling a few grains of coal he had
obtained an equal number of cubic
inches of 'inflammable air" and that if
attempted on a lurije scale millions
upon millions of cubic feet of that valuable substance eoUld be made and
conveyed unseen along the highways
of tlie land and become the means for
obtaining perpetual day. In 18K1 Sir
Walter's^ "smoke" was burned on
Westminster bridge in London, and
one year later the streets of St. .Margarets, Westminster, enjoyed illumination from gas, it being the first parish
contracting for such a luxury.
THE STONE BREAKER.
Am   Example   of   Content   In   Honnl
bnt Monotonous Toll.
In my country of Alsace, ou the solitary route whose Interminable ribbon
stretches on and on under the forests
of the Vosges, there is a stone breaker
whom I have seen at nis work for thirty years. The first time 1 came upon
him I was a youug student setting out
with swelling heart for the great city.
The sight of tbis mau did me good, for
he was humming a song as be broke
bis stones. We ejehuuged a few
words, and he said at the end, "Well,
goodby, my boy, good courage and
good luck!" Since then I have passed
aud repassed ulong the same route
under circumstances the most diverse,
painful und joyful. The student has
finished his course; the breaker of
stones remains what he was. He has
taken a few more precautions against
the seasons' storms—a rush mat protects his back, and his felt bat Is
drawn further down to shield his face.
But the forest i.s always sending back
the echo of bis valiant hammer. How
many sudden tempests have broken
over his bent back, how much adverse
fate has fallen on bis bend, on his
house, on bis country: He contiuues
to break'bis stones, and coming and
going I Und hlin by the roadside smiling in spite of his age and his wrinkles, benevolent, speaking—above nil
in dark days—those simple words of
hruve men which have so much effect
when they nre scanned to the breaking
of stones.—From '•The Simple Life,"

Romance  of a  Stnlne.
The Statue of Charles I. wliich now

during the commonwealth with the understanding that it should he broken
up. The buyer, however, saw a chance
to make money and buried it instead.
To cover his action lie made ti large
number of bronze knives and forks,
which were eagerly bought by both
royalists and Puritans as souvenirs.
When tbe monarchy wa.s restored to
power the statue was dug up again
and bought by the government to be
placed in its present position, where it
has remained since niT-i.

How She  Got  Her  Will  Drafted  aad
Fooled Her Lawyer.
A certain lawyer, famed for high
charges, had incurred the enmity of
nn old lady ou account of the same.
Wishing to get even with him. she consulted bim about drafting her will. As
she was a very wealthy old lady, without near relatives, she had many charitable associations to betiettt, and the
accurate draft of the will inquired
much patience, skill and time. Among
I lie provisions she made a generous
bequest to this lawyer aud nominated
bim executor. After the execution of
the will she called for her bill, whereupon the lawyer, with the vision of
ample fees lu the prospective settlement of the estate and the memory of
the generous bequest, told the old Indy
that under the circumstances he shoulil
charge nothing, but finally, to satisfy
her business scruples, made out a receipt in full to date for $1, whereas the
smallest sum be could have properly
charged would have been $100.
The old lady marched home with her
will, set herself to work, copied It out
carefully word for word, leaving out
the bequest to the lawyer and nominating a new executor.
In tbe course of time she died, nnd
the disgust of the lawyer at the contents of the Will was so great that he

The  Snered  Twelve.
The "patriarchal and apostolical
number cf twelve" as the proper und
only admissible number for a Jury trying cases according to the common law
bus come down to us from remote antiquity. Yet this number was not al-
wnys universal. In 1652 a (Cornish custom to have juries of six was declared
to be had. but evidence was given that
such juries had been widely used in
the county, and by a special statute of
Henry VIII. juries of six were allowed
in Wales. But the jury of the grand
assize consisted of sixteen men, which
still finds a parallel in the jury of presentments of the Liberty of the Savoy.
The modern grnnd jury, the coroner's
jury nnd the jury at lunacy nud ecclesiastical Inquisitions number anything
between twelve and twenty-three,
whereof twelve at leust must agree ou

It is better than electricity, because
it does not scar or produce a new growth.
Better than X-ray, because it does not
burn, scar or paralyze the tissues under

it will not cause blood poisoning, or
produce eczema, which is ao common
with depilatories, and does not break
olf the hair, thereby increasing its
growth.

BAD CIRCULATION
A   License    Commissioner,   Who   Suffered
Dreadfully from these Ailment-, Entirely Cured by
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Dad  circulation   of  the  blood,   tho i
usual causo of   tho   extremely painful
and dangerous diseases,    arises from
defective action of tho kidneys.
The blood cannot possibly be pure,
and in a fit condition to nourish the
body when tho kidneys are diseased
and fail to filter from it the poisonous waste matter.
Ur. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, by
their direct and healthful action on
tho kidneys, not only overcome diseases of the kidneys, but by doing so
ensure a purifying of the blood.
Mr. William u. Best, License Commissioner for tho County of llnldl-
iniind, and who lives ln Cayuga, Ont.,
writes: "I havo been troubled with
cramps in my legs. I would awako
from sleep in keen distress. Tho pain
would seize me at the nnkle and work
up tho leg almost to tho body.
"Believeing this trouble to arise
from kidney derangements and bad
circulation of the blood, I bought
soniH of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills at W. J. Quinsey's drug storo
and began using them. They benefitted me from, tho very first, and by
continuing their use I have been completely cured. I would recommend
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to any
Suffering as I did. I was so bad
that 1 would havo to jump out ot
bed   two   or three times during   tho
night."

Demonstrate your faith in government
ownership by casting jour ballot on
Tuesday for C. H. Mackintosh.
Mackintosh represents the mining
industry of the country, Galliher is of
tbe professional classes. Vote for the
man who seeks to develop tlie country.
The Conservative candidate stands
for the principle of government ownership, the Liberal candidate supports
company ownership. Which do you
prefer?    	
Election day is nest Tuesday. Let
every believer in Conservative principles be early astir and do his full
duty by the party candidate, Hon. C.
H. Mackintosh.
Judging from the amount of heavy
oratorical artillery brought to bear on
Yale-Cariboo by the Grits, Duncan
Ross, the machine candidate, finds it
n hard stronghold to subdue.
Here is the latest shuffle in Liberal
circles in this province. Senator Tem-
pleman is slated to succeed Sir Henri
Joly as lieutenant-governor, the latter
going to England. J. C. Brown, of
New Westminster, will get the vacant
senatorship.
It is given out that Hon. K. L.
Borden will retire from the activo field
of politics, relinquishing the leadership of the Conservative party. His
retirement will be a loss to dominion
politics, both sides regretting the step
he has taken. £ Toronto man will
probably get the leadership.
Provincial Grits are counting chick -
,ens. They say they are going to defeat the government when the legislature meets, aud that au appeal to the
country will give them victory Win
ter will soon be /here and that will
assist in cooling off the big head of
-the Grits, who are doomed to opposition for many a loug day yet to come.
W. A. Galliher claims support by
reason of the bouuties, bonuses, and
grants obtained for Kootenay from
the government. If weighed in the
financial balance, how much weightier
then is the claim of Hon. C. H. Mac
kiutosh, who has been the means of
bringing into the district double the
amount of money his opponent has

Interior lumbermen are again approaching the Laurier government to
have a duty placed on imported luni
lier, in order to save the industry from
practical extinction. If protection is
not gratiteil millownersassert that not
more thau three-fifths of the mills in
B.C. will get even a small chance to
operate next season. Even in this
town dire distress has lieen worked
.upon the people by the refusal of the
Liberals to protect the lumbering industry. Remember the circumstance

plump against the Liberal nominee.
Quebec Conservatives have acted
the childish part in not nominating
candidates to eontett the provincial
elections, because of the precipitate
manner in which thoy were culled,
polling day being on the 26th. No
doubt the Patent government has
lieen guilty of trickery and sharp
practices -a legacy handed down from
tho old Merrier regime but that
should not be made the excuse for a
display of the craven spirit. It were
moro manly to fight and get licked
than not fight nt all. The Parent
government sought a snap judgment
under the Influence of the Laurier
victory, but they little dreamed the
"snap" that would fall to them.
