AU Klecteit.
Tho returns from the Dominion
elections arc yet in a muddle, but
there is evidence sufficient to show
that Wednesday was a Waterloo for
the Conservatives, the Liberals carry ing the country by an increased
majority. The striking feature of
the contest was that every Conservative leader excepting Hon. John
Haggart, and possibly Sir Charles
Hibbert Tupper, went down to defeat, while not a single prominent
Liberal lost his head. Hugh John
went down in Manitoba, Montagu in
Ontario, Caron in Quebec, Tupper in
Nova Scotia, and Foster in New
Brunswick, with even Davin in the
Territories Another surprise is the
strength shown by the Independents,
they having elected seven representatives. Taken by provinces, the returns at hand show:
British Columbia—{Conservatives 2,
Liberals 1, Independents 1, elections
to be held 2.
Northwest Territories—Conservatives 1, Liberals 2. Independents 1.
Manitoba—Conservatives 3, Liber

Total Liberal majority over Conservatives and [ndepoiidenfs 4f>.
These figures will admit of correction bv later returns, but the major
ity of the government is liable to increase. The elections to be held arc
put on the Liberal side chiefly. The
Independents may also be counted on
to give the government more or less
support. Ontario showed large Conservative eains, but Quebec nnd the
Maritime Provinces are overwhelm*
ly for Laurier. Quebec, especially,
presents a formidable array of gov
eminent supporters. Puttee's victory in Winnipeg was most pronounc
ed, as was also Ralph Smith's on
Vancouver Island. Richardson won
in Lisgar against big odds. Universal sympathy is expressed for the de
teat of Hugh John Macdonald In
Brandon, as he was deemed worthy
of a better f..te. Tupper was too big

Orangemen's At Home.
November 5, Guy Fawkcsday, was
most fittingly celebrated by the local
Orange Society by holding an At
Home in the Music Hall. There were
about 1W) invited guests present and
it was a thorough I v enjoyable affair.
Thc first part of the evening was
spent in pleasant social intercourse,
and then followed a abort programme
of speeches and music, in which the
Adcock orchestra took a prominent
part. Kev. Mr. Roberts, of New
Denver, was chairman, and he, with
I). McVannell and .1. T. Beanchcsnc,
gave brief addresses of welcome nnd
advanced reasons for celebrating the
dav. Then came sapper, tbe guests
being sealed at two long tables and
the members of tlio Order acting as
waiters. There was a goodly array
of viands, to which full justice was
done. A number of toasts were pro
posed, bringing forth excellent
addresses from Messrs. Harrison, Mc-
Kee and Shook. A rousing toast to
Her Majesty brought the affair to a
Close, it having been the first June,
tion ofthe kind held iu thc town. It
served to bring the townspeople in
closer touch with each other and
demonstrated that tho members ol
the Orange Society are not lacking in
their ideas of entertainment.
Writs Served.
On Monday the writs in thc case of
Cameron vs. Kirkwood were served
on tho defendants. The plaintiffs
have f mr clauses in their plaint: To
advene the application lor a cert ill-
cato "t Improvements on the Eda I
fraction; possession of the ground ot
the Bald Mountain fraction alleged
to be embraoed within the boundaries of the. Kdu; an injunction against
defendants, and damages. The hold
era of the Imnd on the Speculator
group have the matter in hand.

l.r«B( Advancement Shown by This Mining Division.
The season which is now practical
ly closed has boem a bright one in
mining circles in this division, and
the advancement made is far greater
than in any similar period in thc
past. It has not been confined to any
ono section, for all parts of the division have shown material progress.
The amount of money expended has
been very large, while the number of men employed has shown a
steady increase. More bonds, and
of a more substantial nature, have
been made than in any past season;
while the actual development has exceeded past veal's. It is safe to say
that $500,000 has been expended in
the division during the year for development purposes, while $300,000
will represent the amount of bonded
On Ten Mile, the properties bonded were: The Hlack Hawk, to Ernest
Mansfield; Neepawa, to the Warner
Miller syndicate; Iron Horsa.to Mark
■Manley and associates: Mabou and
Ohio group, to J. Frank Collom;
Transvaal group, to Ward McDonald. On Twelve Mile: The Bachelor,
to A. Fishburn; V & M, to the V &
M Mining Co. On Springer creek:
Speculator, to J. Frank; Collom, who
also bonded the Gertie R; Tamarac.
to J. Holden, who has lately taken a
property on Republic hill; Hampton,
toN. F. McNaught and associates;
Two Friends, to T. Lake and associates. Other small deals have also
been made on this creek, together
with lenses on tho Black Prince and
Bondholder. On Lemon creek: Several claims around the Chapleau and
Kilo; Hoodoo, to J. Beuedamj Howard Fraction, under lease, and several small transactions.
Many new buildings have boen
erected at the various properties, and
a sawmill has been established on
Springer, with a stamp mill and
tramway at the Chapleau. on Lemon
creek. A wagon road has also been
built up Lemon and another up
Springer, while trails have been
constructed to several properties. The
amount of ore in sight is larger now
than at any previous time, and the
values show no deterioration. The
indications point to several more
properties starting up, and the Inquiries from outside capital are on
the increase.
Trouble nt tbe Ohtipleaa.
Affairs at the Chapleau have been
in a sadly muddled condition of late,
as between the management of of J.
M. Williams and the French directors now here, and the aid of the
courts has been invoked to straighten
things out. Mr. Williams refused to
recognize the authority ofthe directors and declined to allow them on
the property, while the latter have
since secured an injunction restraining Mr. Williams from trespassing
on the premises in question. The
accounts of the company are in a
mixed up state and Mr. Browning is
engaged in balancing the books. He
has been asked to take tho management ofthe finances of the company.
Work is being carried on vigorously
atthe mine, but the mill will not be
in running shajc till next month,
owing to tho delay in the arrival oi
the machinery.
AriinttiHi Developments.
It is tho intention of the Arlington
Mines to increase their force and to
stope out oro during the winter. In
No. C workings tho old timbers are
decaying and it has been decided to
take out the ore and permit the drift
to till in. Later on new bunkhouses
are. to be erected, the lumber being
supplied from the company's mill,
which is effecting a great saving.
Next year the company purpose sinking a 1000-foot shaft from the lower
ground, so as to thoroughly exploit
the ledge, which is confidently believed to cany large quantities of
ore below the present workings. Mr.
Collom, the managing director ot the
Arlington Mines, staled Monday that
mining in this section had got down
to a permanent basis, and that the
Arlington hill would make a great
record iu the camp.
S|n-i uiiitor Development.
Development at the Speculator is!
proceeding in a satisfactory manner, j
Upwards of $10,000 having already!
been expended since the bond was'
taken.   The No. A   drift   is   bei ig ■
pushed ahead so as to determine the
most favorable spot for sinking a
shaft, called for in the bond. Some
line oro has been encountered, assays
from which go as high as 7W oz.
The new framing shed completed at
the mouth of tho drift is a beauty,
and will enable the work to be carried on in comfort. Sufficient mining
timber is on hand to last fully nine
months, There is about 18 inches of
snow now on the ground.

The case of Manley vs. Collom, re
thc Native Silver fraction, has resulted in favor of the plaintiff, the decision having been announced by Mr.
Justice Walkem, at Nelson, Wednesday. The main point in the judgment was that Manley had purchased
his half Interest iu the fraction in
good faith, and so must lie confirmed
in his possession,though the evidence
tended to show that there, had been
an understanding among the, former
owners to evade the law relative to
the location of the ground. The decision carries costs.

night he was conveising an hour

court should have appointed a foreigner to watch over the countess'
fortune. He wanted his father appointed if a trustee was needed.
"My son" said the Marquis de
Castellaine, last night, "thought
1 could serve him equally well.
Boni and the Gould brothers won't
agree. We both feel that Ceor^e
Gould will administer the trust with
harsh parsimony. Boni with difficulty will bear this  bondage,"

C. P. R. Frauds
Marpolc Says So   Two
Men Suspendod   No
Enquiry Here.
Rossland. B. C, November a—
Superintendent Marpole sfates
that while there has been some,
illicit trade in tickets between Rossland and Greenwood the matter
has been grossly exaggeration.
Two conductors on the route have
been suspended and it is said one
has been  discharged.
Mr. MacArthur states that his
office is not concerned in the matter and no investigation is pending
regarding himself 01 his   stiff.
Andy Anderson the transfer man,
says that he first heard ot the
alleged syndicate yesterday and be
wants it distinctly understood that
he is not concerned in tbe matter
directly or indirectly.
If it had been prophesied that
within ninety days alter tbe death
ot C. P. Huntington his magnificent
properties, which were believed
to be solely under his control,
would be in the hands of his rivals,
the statement would have been received with incredulity. But this,
it seems,isjexactly what bas happened. It was the late Mr. Huntington's dream to ha\e built up a veritable empire of transportation.
Perhaps he, more than any other
man, realized the vast resources of
country. He regarded alt growth
not from a sentimental or patriotic
point ot view, but from an exceedingly selfish and utilitarian point.
Even those who disliked the man
for his unyielding selfishness cannot help but admire the will and
the brain which forced a far-off
road into the position of a   dictator.
The man is dead and the Southern Pacific is the foot-ball for foreign capital. The Pacific Mail,
which he built up at infinite pains,
is now owned by his deadliest rival
in the transportation world, and
even the Southern Pacific, with its
nearly ten thousand mileage, is in
possession of the same people.
Perhaps there was never so speedy
a scattering of large interests as
that of the hitherto unassailable
Southern Pacific company. There
is a cheerful belief that the place of
each man can be filled, and that
there lives no man who is actually
indispensable. .Mr. Huntington
came very near being indispensable
to the Southern Paicfic, as it existed
under ihe Huntington regime.
The policy ofthe late Mr. Huntington has been that of sowing for
others to reap. Tbe Vanderbilts
have enormous capital. They keep
a man constantly on tbe outlook for
investiments, and it is lair to presume that they will spend money
in the way ol further extension.
The Salt Lake and Los Angeles
road was tbe last scheme of Mr.
Huntington's. This was intended
to defeat any design that the Vanderbilts might have entertained to
seek an entrance on this coast.
His death permitted what his life
prevented. The Vanderbilts have
now a road from ocean to   ocean.

officers of the vessel state that nearly all of the South Sea islands are

His Temper
Tod Sloan Does Not Like
Loss of His Engagement With Prince
New York, Nov. a.—Tod Sloan's
temper is seriously ruffled by the
loss of his engagement with the
Prince of Wales, says a London
dispatch to the World.
"Have you been notified lhat
you will not be retained by the
Prince of Wales?" the jockey was
"No, but I guess it's true, all
lhe s-unc," was Sloan's reply.
"The feeling that has been stirred
up against American jockeys here
by soms of tbe swells and sporting
papers is the worst I ever knew.
The prince could not stand against
it, 1 suppose, and I will say nothing
against him.
"Do you intend to give up racing
here?" he was asked.
Will Not Give 1 |>.
"1 don't intend doing anything of
the kind, I have still as many offers to ride trom the best owners as
I want. I ride fair, do my best
every time and am not beaten yet.
You can tell them that in New
Maish, tbe Prince of Wales'
trainer, furnished information before it was communicated to Sloan,
and tbe prince, it is said, has rebuked him for it. Despite Sloan's
confidence, in himself, this cancelling of the Prince of Wales' engagement is considered the worst blow
lis has ever received, as other owners will surely  follow   suit.

The records of divorce courts
show that divorce has become either
an epedemic or a habit. Divorces
ar» obtained in the states on frivolous grounds. In too many cases
marriage was evidently entered into
as a speculation. One party to iht
marriage bad money, while lhe
other had none. The party without money would then proceed to
make life so unpleasant for the
party with money lhat that parly
would make a sacrifice of money to
gel out of a had scrape.
In Chicago, the proportion ol divorces to marriage is one to every
five. The high divorce ratio might
be considered exceptional if other
cities did not appronch unpleasantly
near it. In Baltimore, a quiet,
conservative southern city, the
ratio is one to nine. Friendly di*
vorces, so called, are especially objectionable.
When divorce is applied lor on
grounds so slight that the parties
rcniair, pending proceedings, on
friendly terms with each other, *'
reasonable conclusion is that the
grounds upon which the application
is based arc frivolous. Money or
illicit love may be the real cause,
while some other respectable cause
is named in tbe application.
Judges are often induced to grant
divorces on frivolous grounds b)
lhe presumption tbat if the petition
is denied the couple will be doomed
lo an unhappy married life. Thi"
presumption is not always borne
out by facts. When a couple seek
divorce on slight provocation the
denial ol divorce may induce th*
parties to remove the cause of complaint.     11   may   be found   thai th*
situation is not bo bad us it appear*"
lo be.     Willi   a   liberal divorce law
to construe,  judges may materiall)
decrease the ratio ol divorces t0
marriages. VERY SAD AFFAIR

Rossland, B. C, November 6,-*-
The tlag Hying at half mast over
the Nickel Plate shaft of the Great
Western mines today signalled that
a fatality had occurred there this
Inquiry at the B. A. C. offices,
from Dr. Reddick the coroner and
from other sources, elicited the following statement. Andrew Howick, a mucker, was doing some temporary work at the 500-toot level of
the Nickel Plate vertical shaft,where
a platform bad been placed, cutting
off the passage of the skips to the
000-foot level, or bottom of the
shaft, Above Howick, at the 400-
loot station, two muckers named
Munroe and Baxter were at work
and it is said that Howick warned
Munroe that be was at work below
him and to be carelul to not allow
any rock to tall on him and also to
keep the cage oil him. Munro, it
is said, told Baxter about Howick,
so that both men were aware that a
man was at work 100 feet below
and directly under them, At the
400-foot station chairs were in position to prevent the cage trom going any further down.
The men went on shift this morning as usual and about 9 o'clock
Baxter, it is stated, heard as he
thought Howick striking on the
pipe for the cage. Accordingly he
pulled out the chairs and signalled
tbe engineer to send the skip down
to the Goo-foot level. The cage
passed on down and although the
engineer slowed up in passing or
attempting to pass the 5oo-foot station, the cage caught poor Howick
and simply crushed him to death.
The temporary platform of course
held the cage and Baxter, fearing
an accident, went down the ladder
way, only to find the mangled remains of Howick underneath the
cage. Assistance was at once obtained, Howick was brought to the
surface and Dr. Bowes quickly arrived on the scene, but the unfortunate man must have been killed instantly as he was quite dead when
he surface was 1 cached.
Dr.   Reddick    was   notified   and
first to last has been exemplary.
Not a single case of serious crime
has been brought to my notice, indeed, nothing deserving the name
of crime. I have trusted in the
men's own soldierly feelings and

Sloan'*   lllmiiimal   In   Hopularl)   Received lu   England.
London, Nov. 3.--The Prince of
Wales' dismissal of Tod Sloan is
received with joy by the racing
world of England as a significant
indication of the feeling against
American jockeys and trainers. The
prince yielded to the popular clamor
while the methods and manners of
a number of self advertising American owners have undoubtedly given
the Jockey Club an excuse for its
present attitude. Sloan is much
chagrined. His retainer was to
have been £.5000. He had other
oilers of a like amount, but now
the prince has thrown him over, no
English owner is likely to employ
him as first jockey.
Sloan is to return to the United
States November 14, but the story
that he does not intend to applj for
a license here in 1901 is regarded
as being at least premature. Leigh,
trainer of Frank Gardner's stable,
which Sloan manages, and whose
application tor a license to train at
Newmarket caused so much of the
present trouble, has secured quarters at Epsom. Twenty-six American yearlings have already arrived
there. Rigby will not apply for a
license for 1901, as he is engaged
by Madame Memier to ride in
France. Morgan, Edie and Jones

True to its name, the Independent
Labor Party in this riding lias cut
loose from the thraldom of tbe Liberals and Conservatives and is standing
on an independent basis. They encourage the freedom of thought and
.action, and they are best fitted to
guage the requirements of the laborer,
because they are mainly toilers.
'Canucks, show your independence
and boost for Foley.
Unionism is nothing if it is not
•meant to be co operative. Union men
should remember this and nil bran-
, dies of organized labor should work
-together for the advancement of their
own interests and for the good of the
/common cause of humanity.   Don't
be content with being a mere mem-
•Tier of a union, but endeavor to carry
out the principles of unionism. Entourage and assist your fellow-toilers
ot every calling in life, and, above
all be true to those who are of the
same household of faith.
That socialism is making rapid
headway in this country is not to be
denied, particularly in the western
section. Canada, however, is not
alone in this respect, as the United
States shows healthy progress, the
people, as they get to understand the
principles of socialism, realizing that
it comes nearer meeting the various
phases of their existence than any
■ether cult. In South Dakota—the
•first territory on the continent to make
-tho experiment—the people have
adopted the initiative and referendum, and it Is glying the greatest
satisfaction. Not only docs it permit
of direct legislation by the people, but
it has cleansed politics to u remarkable extent. Canadian legislators
would do well to copy .South Dakota
in this matter, even it be only to purify the politics of the country.
