Tho mayor and council and board
of school trustees are doing some hard
thinking to devise a plan to secure a
special .grant from the educational
department to provide for pupils attending the public schools from without the, city limits. At an informal
discussion of the matter after the
ooucil meeting Monday night it was
mentioned that Kaslo and Kossland
had received $15 per year extra for
jiupils attending, and while Slocan
bad been applying for
extra money had nsj_	
The usual attendance from West
Slocan is about three and from Brandon it is between teu and eighteen,
i If a school were maintained in Bran*

of maintenance about $650 per year
and the amount received from the
government about $800,
Various plans for securing the extra per capita allowance, were considered. One alderman suggested
that the outside children be refused
admittance, but it was recognized that
tliis would bring a greater storm
alxiut the heads of the councilman
and school trustees than they could
withstand. The city solicitor advised
that a request for the extra allowance
lie made to the provincial secretary
and our representative in the local
legislature be asked to back it up.

Thos. Benton aud Bert Wilhelm,
both old-timers of Slocan, the former
one of the hardiest prospectors and
hardest workers that ever wielded a
pick and the latter one of the best
camp cooks that ever tickled a miner's
palate, returned Tuesday from a four
months' trip in the Bella Cooln and
Francis lake districts of northern
British Columbia, They spent the
greater part of their time about 260
miles ist the interior from Bella Coola
and located 640 acres of grazing land
While they do not advise any one
to leave this country to go there, yet
they believe there are great possibilities for the country, as the fertile
land is boundless in extent and rivers
and lakes are everywhere and full of
trbut, salmon ami white lish. The
lish are in such great abundance and
so eager to take the bait or spoon that
fishing soon became no sport with
them. Game is there in great abundance and can be procured with a rifle
whenever needed.
When Messrs. Benton and Wilhelm
landed at Bella Coola they  met  Max
Heckmaii, well known to all residents
of Slocan, who joined them  and  was
with them in all their journeys in the
northern   country.     Heckmaii  Bros,
hove done well during the years they
have spent exploring and trapping in
that vast, un surveyed region.    They
have found rich ledges of copper and
galena ore and showed excellent specimens, especially of copper.    While
they have not staked  their mineral
discoveries, which would be useless at
the present time on  account of the
distance of transportation   facilities,
vet they keep the knowledge of their
location in reserve for the advent of
the railroad and subsequent settlement.   The Heckman boys last winter
caught over 70 marten and a number
of beaver.   Roth are  looking rugged
and in thc best of health and they
were preparing to   winter in the interior when Tom and Rert left.
Messrs. Benton and Wilhelm intend
to return early next spring, and will
outfit iii Bella Coola, where tliey say
supplies can be obtained practically
as cheap as in Vancouver or Victoria.
Two new shippers were added to
the list this week, namely, tbe KJan-
(ield two and the Edison 15 tons.
The Enterprise failed to seud out tho
usual carload. Ten or twelve tons
from the Cripple Stick aro loaded on
the car but have not yet gone out.
For 1908 the ore shipments from
the loeal division amounted to 1830

Sixteen Years of Great Distress from Indigestion and
Liver Trouble--Doctor's Failed—Cure Effected by
Dr.   Chase's   Kidney    Liver   Pills.
In most coses ot chronic Indigestion tho liver and kidneys are at
fault as well as tho stomach, and because of their combined action on
thoso organs, Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills curo when all ordinary
means fail.
The caso of Mrs. Husband is not
unlike scores and hundreds which are
repeated to us. There can bo no
.better evidence as to tho thoroughness and effectiveness of Dr. Chase's
Kidncy-Llver Pills.
Mrs. E. Husband, Moore street,
St, Catharines, Ont., states: "I
was seriously afflicted with indigestion and stomach trouble for sixteen years. Finally I became so
bad that I could scarcely cat anything without eating terriblo distress.    Oradually I grew weaker and
more emaciated, and though treated
by three doctors and a specialist I
received no benefit.
"After a time a pajn began in my
right side, which medical men. said
was liver trouble. I never got relief
until I began tho use of Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, and they helped
mo at once. By using about a dozen
boxes I was entirely cured. I owe
my curo entirely to this treatment,'
and make this statement with tha
hope that some-poor sufferer may,
benefit by my experience.

At a meeting of the dominion cabinet last Thursday it was decided to
hold the general elections on November 3, tlio nominations falling on
October 27. An extra of the Canada
Gazette was issued early on Friday
containing the formal  proclamation.
The main points at issue in the
coming election are the Grand Trunk
Pacific deal and tariff reform. In
these and other matters the conservatives are having the best of the argument, ns the triumphal procession of
Hon. Mr. Borden testifies. The wholesale coniplion aud political debauchery of the liberal machine in Ontario
is very detrimental to the liberals
and tlie conservatives are making the
most of it. Conservatives will easily
win tho majority of seats west of the
Ottawa river.
Fortune favored John McKane
when he was defeated by Galliher for
parliamentary honors. He is mining
ore by the carload at Goldflelds, Nevada, worth S5,(KW a sack.
The chief issue of the coming campaign will undoubtedly be that whieh
has been raised by the Grand Trunk
Pacific deal. Mr. Borden's policy of
government ownership and control of
the railways will gain more votes for
the conservative candidates than any
other of the proposed changes.
The post office department has
mnde a big boast of earning a surplus
of $304,771 the past year, nnd it
sounds decidedly out of tune throughout British Columbia where improvements in the mail service are among
the greatest needs. A deficit with
good postal service that keeps apace
with improvements in otlier countries
is more desirable than a surplus as it
is mow.
Joe Martin's withdrawal from politics was not of long duration. He
has bobbed up again as an independent liberal candidate at Nanaimo for
the approaching federal general elections, and his chief motive appears to
be to satisfy an old grudge and encompass the defeat of Ralph Smith,
the regular liberal candidate. While
these turbulent gentlemen are getting
even the chances are very much in favor
of the election of the conservative

A Jap who is prominent in his own
country has propounded a poser for
the philosophers 06 the white-skinned
races, Read it and then try to decide
what constitutes civilization: "Today we Japanese have battleships,
torpedoes, cannon. The China seas
redden with the blood of our killed
and of those wo hill■ Our torpedoes
roar, our shrapnel shriek, our cannon
breathe slaugh>ter, and we die nnd are
the cause uf death. And you Occidentals say to US, 'Vou have won vour
rank; yon have civilized  yourselves.'
Centuries upon centuries we have luul
artists, painters, sculptors, philosophers, In tl.e sixteenth century we
had published in Japanese tbe fables
