With the exception of a fow scattering votes in Siniilkanriyn aud Skeeua,
the returns of last Saturday's election
in the province aro all in, and they
indicate that tho Conservative government has been sustained, though by a
slim majority. With tho aliove two
ridings, tho Conservatives will have 22
seats, Liberals 17, Socialists 2, and
Labor 1. Two ministers, Hon. Mr.
Goodeve, in Rossland, and Hon. Mr.
McPhillips, in Victoria, were defeated,
as were also such prominent Lilierals
as Joseph Martin, F. J. Deane and S.
S. Tavlor. Vancouver went solid Tory
and Victoria straight Grit. The feature of the election was the surprising
strength developed liy the Socialists
everywhere. No Tory lost bis deposit,
but one Grit lost his in Vancouver and
another iu Grand Forks. Tho government express no fear of lieing able to
carry on business in a satisfactory
manner, having a majority of one over
all parties besides the speaker.
Locally everything passed off very
quietly and orderly, the Lalior men
celebrating in royal style when the
returns came in at night. Following

At Saturday night's meeting of tho
Miners' Union the following resolution
was adopted: Whereas, ou the morning of Sept. 28.1003.it was the will of
Almighty God to call from our midst
our worthy brother. Gilbert Finkle,
who died of heart failure at his mining
claims in the Slocan hills; resolved,
that by the death of Brother Finkle
Slocan Minors' Union has lost a true
and faithful member, and lie it further
resolved, that we extend to the relatives und friends of our deceased brother our heartfelt sympathy, that our
charter be draped for a period of .10
days, that theso resolutions lx? spread
on our minutes, and that a copy be
given to the Miners' Magazine for
At Bank or EssgUsssl.
J. W. Moffatt, manager at the Bank
of England claim, went down to Nelson, Saturday, to take part in the election. He stated work would be continued at the property all winter, with
a small force. Their new long tunnel
would give much depth and prove up
tho vein. Surface stripping has exposed the lead in a number of new
places. They have 14 feet of mineralized ledge matter to wc rk os.

At thc samo hour, Hon. Nathan
Waybrook snt in his library awaiting
the arrival of his son, in quest of
whom he lind sent a servant. He was
pale with suppressed emotion, and
his hands wer? clenched until thst lin-
gcr-nails fairly cat into the palms.
At length Paul entered. He, toss.
gave token of suppressed emotion;
but, unlike his father, his face was
hotly flushed.
The most casual and superficial student of huinan nature niic.111 havt
predicted danger in the coming tss-
gcther in opposition of those two
nis'ii. He could have told that one
was as powder, and tht* other n*> fl'o
He might have told, had he known
thetn well, thnt both wore head
strong and proud.
"Paul Waybrook!" commented    tl ,
father, austerely,    and with lowe**!!
aspect, "I hav* a question    to   ns
I think I may give you the  credit of
"lam not aware,'sir," replied the
youth, proudly, and with a touch of
defiance in his manner, "that 1 am a
"Then you will answer mo this :
Havsjyou seen the Brookside girl
■ince our last conference?''
"I have, sir."
"Will you tell nie what wus the object of your visit?"
"I went to cjieer and comfort her."
"Did you go still as hor lover?"
Paul raised himself to his full stature, and spoko frankly and boldly.
His eyes flashed, and the Hush upon
his handsome fare was deeper than
"I have sworn to be true and
faithful to Christine St.. Cluir. The
vow wus made with .your knowledge
and consent. You had thn right to
give that consent, but you have not
the right—you have not the power—
to oatiso me now to brenk my faith
with tlmta pure-minded, noble girl!"
"Not the power?" gasped Air. Waybrook, clutching the edge of tho
"You have not the power, sit*!''
replied I'aul, firmly, He did not
t|Uail nor lline.li; and if ho trembled,
it was not  with  fa*ar.
N'athuu Waybrook urose (o his foet.
For tho moment it seemed ns though
he would strike the boy to thc floor;
butths drew back, nnd caught the
rim of his chair.
"Paul!" he whispered, but the
whisper was terrible in its intensity
of volume, "this interview must be
brief, us 1 ss*e plainly that you are
in no mood for reason. Are you determined to adhere to your vows to
that girl?'
"I  am, sir."
"In spite of my commands?"
"In spite of any aud every opposition. I will bo truo »*o Chrlstlno!"
"Turn to that girl, aud   you   tern
from ine!"
"Then be It ?o!"
"Paul!    Are you serious?"
"I am."
Nathan Wuybr.ook stamped his foot
upon the   door.     His    pent-up    rage
burst foi th  in a  torrent,  anil he wns
the more vehement  in his anger    because hiS son had stood so resolute.
In his   own heart—deep    down where
ho had  sought to  smother the emotion—he foil, that the boy  whs actuated by  a tr.ue   nnd   manly   spirit,
which hod como in contact    with   a
•spirit of worldllnefs on hla part; and
lliis   made   him angry    with himself,
though the storm wus to burst upon
the son.   He   could    not.     surrender
without    bucking   squarely    down—u
thing he  conld  never  do—and  as    he
had never yet been known openly to
acknowledge himself in error, it   wns
not to be supposed thnt he would slo
so in this case.   That ho really meant
to banish his son    forever   from  tho
old rooftreo, we do not  suppose. Men
iu  a   rage    strike     out    with     littlo
thought of   other    result than    ton-
i-'uest.   He    had   hoped—perhaps   he
had believed—lhat Pnul    would   sub-
ini( to  the first  condition  of    ol -oli-

denied, there remained only the sec
ond condition of banishment, if ho
slu tink, he was conquered, Ho would
not be conquered, und hu would not

Pnul Waybrook left his father's
presence. The iron hud eaten into
his soul, and he walked us though
his limbs hud boon transmuted into
Steel. Words cruel nnd scathing had
fallen upon his oars, and lie felt that
ho never wished to see Iiis father
again, lie woultl not sloop another
night beneath the roof from whish
ho had boon peremptorily banhhod,
Ho wont to his chamber und gathered up such valuables as belonged tis
him—such as ho cpiilil transport wit'
ease—and then went out into the
night—and he experienced a sence
of relief when the feeling rami' to him
that he was free from the pats'itnil
restraint. Cod pity the hoy!—Cod
pity the father!—when from thc government of tho household this thing
comes to pass!
Paul carried a traveling bag in his
hand, and took his way down by the
Drookside; but no lights were binning in tho cot luge. Once n policeman
stoppod'him, and asked him who he
was, and what he curried in his bag.
Tho youth's first impulse was wrathful; but a sober, second thought
turned him into n safer channel, He
answered respectfully, nnd wus suffered to puss on. In tho city he
found a lodging at a respectable ho-
ts-l where he was well known—whore
ho had spent muny it merry hour
with his boon companions, and whero
his presence was always hailed with
warm and cheerful welcome. Though
it was past midnight when ho entered, he found lhe host and his ussih-t-
ants up, it having been the occasion
of (ho re-union of a social club, nnd
tut sooner had he deposited his lug-
gnge thun several friends surrounded
and captured him.
llis capture was easy. lie hnd
come heavy-hearted ansl woary, nnd
the tempter found him in pliant
mood. The sparkling of wit and
boisterous friendship startled him
from the slough of sadness, and In
the sparkling bowl ho plunged ht*-
eveiy eare.

Each element used by plant life
helps in the building of certain parts
jf tho plant, and likewise doubtless
each has some ons or mere special
functions. What seine of those ere is
not well    understood, but sows   ere
Nitrogen is known to show its elfeets on plant life in three ways:
pint*—Jt promotes stem end I**!
growth and if in excess delays seed
and fruit formation.
Second.—It deepens the green coloration of the leaves.
Third—its abundance may increase
and its deficiency may lessen the relative amount of nitrogen in the
plant. This means variation In food
If nitrogen is freely applied in fertilizers or is present in plentiful
quantities in the soil Its effect is
generally shown (unless its effect be
negatived by phosphoric acid) by a
vigorous, dark green leaf growth and
by a somewhat retarded flower and
****d formation. 11 available nitro-
■ron is relatively lacking either in
Lhe soil or In the added fertiliser a
somewhat more scanty foliage than
occurs under better conditions, one
of a rather lighter green, is grown.
Tho 9»**ed, moreover, is apt to mature
rather earlier than usual. Nitrogen
is essential to plant growth. Available nitrogen in in small quantity
and easily exhausted from soils, and
consequently *t is and always has
been  the most costly  torm ol plant
Nitrogen derived Irom organic matter is insoluble in water aud may be
ait tier uuickly or slowly available to
plants, according to its source,
whether from dried blood, cotton
seed meal, etc., on the one hand or,
on the other, from such material a»

Ai Old labor BBthaage.
There Is in Melbourne, Australia,
an odd labor exchange, which is described in the Scientific Australian,
lt ls Intended primarily for tbe u&-
employod and includes as member's
accountants, architects, bakers, dentists, engineers, printers, authors, artists, journalists, geologists and
piano tuners.
Any member in need goes right
along at work at Ida trade. If he is
a shoemaker, for instance, he takes a
pair of boots to the exchange and receives a COTtlfiCate equivalent to their
estimated value. This he can offer at
any time in return for its value in
such oilier goods as may l>« deposited nt. the exchange by other members, and thus actual cash Is rendered largely unnecessary, though how

Piles, er heiuri'tioids, are small
tumors, which form in and about thc
•riflce of the rectum. They are
caused by an enlarged and inflamed
condition of tlio veins, which are
very numerous iu this portion of the
body. Piles frequently attack women during the cx|iectaut period or
after childbirth.
Any form of piles causes dreadful
suffering on account of the Itching
and burning which accompany them.
One <can scarcely walk at times, and
during the night, when the body
gets warm, suffering is intense.
Mr. Alex. McLaughlin, for 3*0 years
a resident of Bowmanvilie, Ont.,
writes :
"For twenty long years I suffered
from itching piles, and only persons who have been troubled with
that annoying disease can imagine
what 1 endured during that time.

It upps'iirs that an Interesting woi-U
k«s been goinj* on in Chlcasjo for several years wltliont the knowls?dgs3 of
tlie jieoplo In tlie excavation of a tunnel fourteen mlleH long under tlie buni-
aetts district of the eity. This tunnel la
a business undertaking simply and is
to contain a railway for the transportation of freight nmong the great mer*
antitlle houses and between tbem and
the freight stations of the forly-two
railways which enter Chicago, besides
furnishing accommodation for telephone wires and possibly wires of other kinds.
lt ls almost Incredible that n tunnel
of this length, Tarylng In width from
sii to thirteen feet nnd ln height from
eight to fourteen feet, could have been
constructed under the most crowded
part of a great eity without the knowledge even of the newspaper reporters,
but the tunnel Is far below the surface,
the depth varying from twenty-seven
to sixty-live feet, so that it was unnecessary to make temporary roadways
over It. and the excavated material has
lieen taken out at night through shafts
opening In private grounds and taken
itvay to the lake front.
The ground under Chicago la a soft
clay, which was ensily excavated, but
It has beeu necessary to line lt everywhere witli concrete. A considerable
portion of the tunnel is already In use,
and many busini'ss houses hare shafts
open into It, equipped with elevators,
by moans of which freight packages
brought by cars running on the tracks
laid In the tunnel nre hoisted to the
warerooms. Although nn underground
freight railway of this kind seems an
expensive substitute for trucks and
horses, lt is quite possible that It mny

Every one must see that the maintenance of a stable full of horses nnd
wagons and of a multitude of grooms
and drivers is an Important Item In the
cost of carrying on business, especially
when, as Is often the case, the wagons
are driven half the time empty or with
only oue small package in them, and
a system by which goods arriving by
rail could be at once delivered at their
destination with the minimum of handling, while those shipped could be
billed through from the shippim*.

"Two  years   ugo,"   said   Mr.   Kllis
"1 got muscular rheumatism,   I triad

"At last my wife would send for u

I said, you arc no use to me.' "
"I got so bud I could not feed myself or walk alone. Then I was induced to try Dodd's Kidney l'ills. I
took six boxes of them, which drove
all tho Rheumatism out Of mo and
left me in good health attain."

Saturday last and William Davidson
can attacli M.P.P. to his name.   The
campaign   was    cleanly   and   fairly
fought and the Independents are on-
titled to all that is coming to tliem
from their victory.   Now ths struggle
is over the Conservatives have nothing
to swallow or tp take back.   Tho eleo I
torata submits to the rirdict and are
•uixious to have peace restored in tke
interests of tht; country. Ttis,however,
unfortunate tho govei-anient majority
at Victoria is not more pronounced, as
a fee'ius; of uncorlainty yet exists iu
public affair-..   And it is doubly ua-
fortunate that Mr. Davidson will be
unable to lend  his  support to either
party in promoting the cause of stable
govomment.   He was elected as an
Independent  and  he  has   courage
enouj-h   to  hold   to   that principle
What the practical and ta»"s"ible results of that stand will be for the riding remains to be seen.   The political
fight for supremacy in the province
will have to bt decided  without any
assistance from Slocan.

A welcome windfall came to the
government from Ottawa last week in
the shape of a cheque ior $2.ri8,O0O, lieing the amount due the province for

Buried at Vancouver, a-*.* October 3,
under a Tory avalanche, Hon. Joseph
Martin, erstwhile head push of the
Liberal party. His awful fate should
be a warning to all tempestuous politicians.
The Nelson News persists in placing
W. Davidson, the Labor member for
Slocan, in the Liberal column, which
is an unauthorized proceeding. The
Drill has it from a member of Mr.
Davidson's committee that the newly
elected member is an Independent,
pure and simple. And if Davidson
says so, he means it.
Things have boen turned topsyturvy by this election. Fancy Victoria
Liberal and Vancouver all Conservative. Vancouver Island now turns out
to be a Grit hivo, while the Mainland
carries the Tory strength. Odd enough
also, Vancouver Island gives the .Socialists their total strength, while Labor finds its home on tbe Mainland.
The Conservatives have lieen successful throughout the province and
thc government is sustained, though
not with as pronounced a majority as
was confidently expected. However,
thore is strength sufficient to do business and that is the main essential.
The victory, close as it is, will ba ap*
prebiated by the party throughout the
Dominion, being a foretaste of better
things to come. One beneficial effect
of the election has been the disap
pearance from public lifo of materia]
among l-otli Liberals and Conservatives that ^as beeB a clog on progress
and prosperity. Much new blood has
lieen introduc-d and the province will
be the gainer. Under Conservative
rule the province will advance and
gaia in tho estimation of. the investing
publie.eventiiatiiig in a blighter order
of things. Let bygones be bygones
and all strive to bring the country and
its resources to the front.
Au immense amount of satisfaction
is felt by the Conservative party, and
by all old-timers generally, at the
election of Harry Wright in Ymir,
John Houston in Nelsou, and Bob
Green in Kaslo, if for uo otlier reason
than it proves how baseless and unwarranted have lieen the scaudalous
attacks made upon them by the Nelsou
News. Never before in British "Columbia has there been conducted such
a campaiguof misrepresentation, villi-
iication and personal abuse as was
waged by that paper, and it is sincerely to be hoped it will lie the last. The
News has lost the respect of all fair-
minded peoplo and it will never recover it. Messrs. Parr, Taylor and
Retallaek, whom the paper particularly supported, will find that much of
the mini thrown by the News will
stick to t'aem, while their successful
opponents realize that they stand vin
dicatcd and cleared of all wrong by
the electorate. Crow will be the only
meat eaten by the News for many a
long day to come.

Why the "tSlaier'tShoe"
Is now a Union .Shoe,
factory No,    350
The "Slater Shoe" factory has always paid
the highest wages in Canada, because the clasa
of men employed could demand such wages ir*
respective of Union backing.
Also, the "Slater Shoe" factory has alway9
been up to Union standards in lighting, venti*
lation and sanitary  arrangements.
But even these highly favorable conditions
cannot secure from inefficiently organized labor
complete co-operation between employer and em«
ployee. "
So the " Slater Shoe" makers decided to
make their factory a Union factory in name as
well as in actuality.
Henceforward all "Slater Shoes" will bear
the stamp of the Boot and Shoe Workers' Union
with the factory Number 350.
(This number will also identify the shoe
bearing it as the genuine "Slater Shoe," as no
other makers have the right to use it).
This Union Stamp stands for co-operation of
employer and employee, for mutual good "under-
standing, for immunity from strikes and lockouts, for the principle of arbitration, for a
continuous supply of first-class help, for uniformity of workmanship, for fair conditions all
Reduces cor.t by increasing producing
efficiency, by reducing number of spoiled pairs
of shoes, by its greater uniformity of workmanship, by the more thorough organization of
It makes better shoes.
Don't forget the "Slater Shoe" factory,
Number 350—three fifty—same as the "Slater"
three fifty shoe.
When you see that number you will know
you have a genuine Goodyear Welted Union-
