on the platform at New Denver and

prevented tli? lattor from coming ou

Davidson launched into his subject by
saying he would fe.'l mors at home
_-;oing on night shift at a mine, than
to be here trying to make a political
speech. The Labor men kui bo newspapers and no speakers in *.h" Held,
hence he woultl have to explain their
platform. He had been in th* country
since 1893, most of that time around
Sandon. In 10 years there had been
| three elections, and now wero on tha
verge of the fourth. Four govern*
| incuts had been in power and nil had
j thc funis old policy. The electors
! were diss.*itisliod with the wny business had been conducted in the past,
■ and they hoped that anv ehang ' that
did come would he for the better. 'I ba

I Hal government., which the Conserva-
11Hves klso believed. That looked all
ver'** well, but how could a change eb

had put the resignation clause in the
platform, us it prevented old party

the child as upon a sister, who wr.s
at that lime married and living no.tr

afforded the opportunity, the ot cation was embraced (o express aro

which would seem to have been
meant as a hint of his wishes to his
This codicil did not In the least
alter the spirit ot the original will.
It still left the wife free to hold and
to dispose of tho property; but it
provided that if, while living, she
should not otherwiso will, the property shouhl, in thc event of her
death, go to his child. But, further, in case of the death of Rachel
intestate and tho death of his child
without issue, the property should
go to the issue of his sistti- Theresa;
and, failing all these, it should be
taken and held in trust by tho city
•nf New Orleans for certaiu charkabls
purposes whieh were specified. The
will closed wiih the following— the
original being in Victor St. Clair's
own hand—and Mr. Lioflington called
especial attention to it, as showing
how strong and permeating was the
devoted lovo which had been able,
even in scorning, for ft season to blot
out the due reindinbrnnce of a sister:
"And yet 1 do declare it as fully in
accordance with my will antl pleasure, that my beloved wife Rachel,
may, if circumstances shall so incline her, bequeath said estate, both
real and personal, in whole or in
part, to whomsoever it may please
her; and her aet shall bo helsl right
and Just beforo God and man. Thus
do 1 manifest how truly 1 love antl
honor her."
The court being Satisfied of the
nature/of Victor St. Clair's will, Leflington proceeded, in behalf of his
client, to mako known tho further
grounds of his claim; antl, by abundance of evidence, with other evidence that could be had if wanted,
he proved as follows:
Theresa St. Clair, the sister of the
testator, married, in Now Orleans,
Jasper Murdoch. Of their issue,
two daughters, Theresa and Kveline,
libed and married. Theresa married
a James Hugo, and died in giving
birth to her first child. This child,
ths only issue of Theresa antl James
Hugo, lived to manhood, and was
named Adolphc. .Ho was an unfortunate fellow, sadly dissolute antl intemperate.
"And," explained Leflington, "his
friends gave him up as deatl long
ago. They onco received information direct that he had been killed In
n drunken affray nt Vlcksburg, But,
from recent events, it woultl seem
that tho poor man had lived to wander this way, as wo have no doubt
1hat ho was tho man who was found
stead upon the railroad track not
long since. Ho must have bet*n in
search of Madame Rachel, probably
for tho purposo of obtaining money.
Touching his assault upon iho girl
Christine. I ran offer no explanation,
because I know not the exact circumstance. 1 havo nss doubt, however, that ho was a desperate fellow; and if he had planned a bssltl
stroke, he woultl undoubtedly have
struck had it biren in his power."
Tho coincidence of the agreement of
Caspar's family naini. wilh thai of
tho dead ruflkin was not at this lime
particularly noted. It had been
spoken of before, nntl had become an
old story.
Mr. Leflington then proceeded with
his development:
Kveline, the BSCOnd dstughtcr of
Jasper and Theresa Murdoch, married Pierre Compton. They both
diesl within ten years after their marriage, leaving two children, one of
whom alono lived In grsiw up. That
living child of Pierre and Kveline,
named Alexander, is now before the
court, rloiining (ho estate of Victor

Crowing  boys should     always     bo
healthy and rugged. Ready for play,
ready   for   study, and ready at any
timo  for  a  hearty  meal.  This  condition denotes good health, but there
are entirely   too many  who do   not
come up to lliis standard, They take
no part in the manly games nil healthy  boys  Indulge  in:   they ure stoop-
shouldered,     dull  und  listless ;    they
complain   of   frequent  headaches, und
their  appetite   is     variable.      Sometimes parents say, " Oh, they'll outgrow   it."    Hut  they  won't—it's    the
blood    that's  out   of   condition,   nnd
instead   of  getting  better    the.v    get
worse.      What boys of this cluss require   to   make theni   bright,     active
and    strong,   is   a tonic,    something
that will tbuild up the blood and mnke
tho nerves strong.  There is no medicine that can do this as tiuickly and
as effectively   us Dr, Williams'   i'ink
l'ills.   "sirs. Mary Compton, of Merrir
ton,   Out.,  tells what  these  pills did
for  her  sixteen  year  old  son.      She
says :    "About two years ugo my son
Samuel   began   to   decline   in   health,
lie grew  very  pale  antl   thin  and  at I
times experienced serious   weak spells,
coupled   with a tired, worn out feeling,  und   as   the   weeks   went by he
grew   worse.      'litis  alarmed  me,   for
my   husband had   died   of   what  the
doctors    called    pernicious    anaemia,
and  I   feared  my sou  was  going the
same way.    I had often rend thut Dr,
Williams' PlnkPills would cure anaemia, and   decided that he should try
them.    A couple of boxes made a decided   improvement   in   bis  condition,
and by the time he had taken a half
dozen   boxes   his health   was   better
than it hud been for some years previous,   llis weight hail increased, his
listessness   hail disappeared,   and    ho
was blessed with a good appetite.    I
may add that other members of my
family  had  been   benefitted    by    tho
use of Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills ami 1
consider   these   pills   the  best at* all
Poor and watery blood is the cause
of noarly all diseases, and it is because Dr. Williiuns' Pink Pills act
directly on the blood, both enriching
ing it and Increasing the quantity,
that they cure such troubles as nnae-
isi isi. rheumatism, Indigestion, neuralgia, heart troubles, incipient consumption, und the various ailments
that afflict so many women. These
pills may be had from nny dealer in
medicine, or will be sent post paid at

Theso me the words of Joha Fletcher, u well-known resident of this
village, and similar tributes to the
great Canadian Kidney remedy can
be heard on every side.
"1 had been troubled for a year
wiih Lumbago and Kidney 'lYoubles,"
Mr. Fletcher continued, when asked
for particulars; "My urine was of a
very hull color and 1 could get nothing to help nie. 1 consultod the best
dot-tors- in {.ronton and St. Mary's,
but got no relief. Finally I bought
a box of Dodd's Kidney Fills and
commenced taking them. They helped mo almost front the first, and I
was soon completely cured."
It is cures of this kind that havo
given Dodd's Kidney Fills their popularity. Yoti can't find a neighborhood in Canada where Dodd's Kidney Pills are not known by their
tun's. If the disease is of the Kidneys or from the Kidneys, Dodd's
Kidney Fills never fail to cure it.
Tho best time to drink water or

Mr. Smart, Canadian Deputy 'Minister of tlie interior, bus compiled a
Btatement of tho arrivals of immigrants for Iho listul year ending .Juno
■JUth, which places the total for the
year at 124,tj.*i8. lie thinks that tliis
number will probably be added to
■slightly when tho returns are com-
ploted. Tho showing is certainly a
marvellous one, both in regard to
tlio number who have landed in Canada to become actual residents nnd
those who have taken up lands in
Manitoba and thu Northwest Territories.
The arrivals for the month of June
are given as follows: United States,
7,080; llritish Isles, 6,480; continent, 6,15*1. 'total for .Ume, iHO.'),
The statement for tho twelve
months ending .Juno is as follows :
United States, 14,080; llritish Isles,
41,787; continent, 87,801, Total,
The returns for 1890 gave thc arrivals ns follows: United Stntes, 11,-
'.)4.rB; British Isles, 10,660; continent,
31,088.   Making a total ot 44,548.
In 1001 these arrivals were recorded: United Skates, 17,987: llritish
IbIcs, 11,810; continent, l.>,3;">2. Total, 49,149.
In 1902 these arrived from the
United States, 26,888; British Isles,
17,259; continent, 2.1,732. Total,
Tho total increase for 1903 over
1902 is 57,279. The increase from
thc L'nited States is 70 per cent.;
from tin* British Isles 140 percent.;
and from the continent 60 per cent.
The homestead entries show even a
greater average increase than the
total arrivals, tho number for the
fiscal year ending June 80th running
up to 81,848. In 1896 the entri.'S
numborod 1,357, In 1897 2,381. in
1898 4,848, in 1899. 6,689, in 1900
7,421*., in 1901 8,167, and in 1902
14,638. Tho increase in 1903 over

itev. Canon Welch, of St. James'
Cathedral, Toronto, speaking at tho
tii nnial Foreign Missions Festival
in London, Eng., on July 2, thus
spoke ot Canada:
Here.ho sai J,is a virgin land of vast
extent, awaiting the t*»ttlor; millions
and milliaaiis of at present unbroken
prairie will in lime rustle with golden grain. Though tho population
is as y.t scarce, lie movement has
set in, nnd Will continue until it has
peopled the broad plains. It is the
modem land of promise, and, comparing It with Ciuinun of old, he
t|Utiled: "A Und wherein thou shalt
eat bread without scarceness, thou
shalt not lack anything in it; aland
whose s'.om's are iron nnd out of
whose hills thou niayest dig brass."
Vest, a land of promise, indeed, and
in it lay the great opportunity of
tlu* Church, such an apportunlty as
had never bi*en an.l as would novel-
ro ur. Twenty-five thousand immigrants were pouring In each month—

,,,,, ,1-s—wo;e these to be left to
ihaim elves, or was it not tho plain
duty of the Anglican Church in Vs\\\-
ad.t to gather thai-.i into her fold?
'And now," he concluded, "I am
a .t as! Ina- for financial help, It is
nan lhat wo Want; Englishmen, r.ot
to preach to Canatjiann, but to mini-tar to tho Fngls'.i Bottlers of this
generation until they nnd their children shall become absorbed in tho
Canadian nationality. It is these
people, leaving English shores, who
will make Canada the granary of thc
Empire; let us not ho backward in
londoring them tho bread of llfo."

■ =
Without capital there can be no
mines working; without tha mines
working there can bi no men employed; and without a payroll distress and
disaster will follow. Preserve yourself
and country by voting for Hunter, who
is trusted by all classes s>f ths community. His election will tend towards progress and prosperity.
As a Conservative, William Hunter
will lie recognized and supported by a
party, whose policy is the accepted
government of the country. When
elected he at once takes au assured
place in the counsels of his party, and
his representations on b.-hnlf nf hi*
constituency will Ih* heard and grant -
•nd. Wo want a representative with
iflafliience at Victoria. Hunter is the
man for Slocan.
William Hunter is no bird of pax-
sage. He was one of the first to come
into the camp and has remained here
ever since, constantly growing in the
favor and esteem of his fellows. He
is a larga property and claim owner,
and for that reason, if for uo other, he
is a permanent fixture. The prospectors have always found in him a friend
in the time of need, and it ls satisfactory to note that their support ii going to hitn on election day. William
Hunter has ever lieen one of th.' people, and today enjoys tho confidence
of every class of the community. Honesty of purpose and integrity of
character an* his factors that are recognized by hit fellows. These constitute the real basis for stating that
ho is a "safe" man to send to Victoria*
Mr. Hunter has been proven in the
past to lie no mere idle dreamer, but
a doer one who is always ready to do
his full duty as a citizen and a truo
heaiUd British subject. If sent to
Victoria, the people can rely upon bis
stedfastness and honesty. He will
act for Ids constituents as for himself,
• aad he will stand for all the people,
He is the man Slocuu wants, so mark
your ballot accordingly.
Much abuse has l*eou hurled at
those Conservatives who hav.' sat in
past legislatures in the province, as
being slothful aud incompetent. It.
has been stated that they always controlled the government and legislated
for themselves. If sueh were Uir case,
it is certainly odd that more popular
legislation is to be found on the statute book* of British Columbia than
any othor province in tho Dominion,
The working classes have received
much te their interests from these selfsame Tories, as the following would
demonstrate: Coal Mines Regulation
Act, 1898- British Columbia Railway
Act, 181)0; Mechanics' Lien Aet. L891 j
Eniployers' Liability Act, 1891 j Apprentices and Miners Aet.1897, Arresl
and Imprisonment for Debt Act, 1897j
Creditors' Relief Act, 1902; Labor
Regulation act, L898; Workmen's
Compensation Act. L902; Deceived
Workmen's Act, 1902) Shops Regulation Act, 1900' the Eight Hour Law.

have been made good? Moreover, not
