tioa mm  v, ""''to*
On Monday eveniug the Conservatives held a grand rally in the Music
Hall, they having with them their
notninee for Kootenay, Hon. Charles
Mackintosh, of Rosdand, familiarly
known as the "Coventor." The meeting was largely itttended,mnny having
to stand, while numerous Indies also
graced the occasion with their presence, it was an enthusiastic gathering and there was no doubt as to the
feeling of thc audience lieing with the
Governor, ho being  cheered   to   the
Aid. Smith acceptably filled the
chair, while grouped on the platform
were Mr. Mackintosh, \V. Hunter of
Silverton, J. A. Foley, A. E. Teeter,
and the village scribe. The latter was
called upon to open the nieeting, his
remarks being confined chiefly to a
criticism of VV. A. Galliher's speech
here last week.
A. K. Teeter.
Mr. Teeter, on liehalf of Mr. Baker,
the Socialist candidate, said that he
welcomed the Conservatives to the side
of Socialism ou tho railway question,
because of government ownership.
However, the Conservatives were not
a unit on the question, as some of tho
party were speaking against it. He
believed it was lime for the people to
take part in and run their own affairs.
Xo doubt the Lilierals were using
public monies in an extravagant way,
>nt the Conservatives might do the
same were they in power. Socialists
were the true representatives of the
workingmen aud they should elect
their own representatives. As it was,
they were over-repiest'iited in parliament by professional m.*n. while tho
working classes got no show. There
must UO oilier differences lietween the
;.wo old parties besides the railway
policy, but to the Socialists they were
the same, ns Ik th stood for capitalilin.
It ft* high lime Socialist doctrine
was introduced into Canada, in the in
terest of thc masses, as the old parties
were out for selfish schemes. Mr.
i'eeter closed with an appe.il for the
electors to vote for Mr. Baker, who
.vas a local man and favorably known
to all.
Hum. 31.. Murk into ah.
The Governor, on coming forward,
■vas greeted with warm applause. He
was pleased with Mr.Teetar's remarks,
is he respected the doctrines of the
Socialist party. (Just here a stampede
was almost caused by the sudden
ringing of the fire alarm, but it turned
out to be only a Hallowe'en prank and
the audience soon quieted down.)
rhe speaker wanted to point out to
Mr. Teeter that there was a great difference between the two old parties.
Government ownership was uo new
thing to Conservatives, for had they
uot years ago built the Intercolonial
railway. Laurier, for the Lilierals.
was always denouncing that policy.
Conservatives wore always progressive
.virile the Lilier.iis were always the
opposite, Conservatives had initiated
all lending progressive ideas incorporated in Canadian national life, from
confederation on, while the Lilierals
had filled their part by denunciation,
Conservatives were always abreast of
the times. He agreed with Mr.Teeter
that there wore too many professional
men in parliament, and that was why
he, representing the mining interests
of the country, was opposing Lawyer
Galliher. If elected, he could be depended on to do full justice to B.C.
interests. He had been called an old
man, but he was still possessed of as
much vigor as a young man, and had
also a ripe experience. He was still
capable of doing much good, and
when needed in the house he would
always be there to cast Ids vote. He
did not like criticising Mr. Galliher
while absent, but his parliamentary
record was not a favorable one. Although not knowing Mr. Baker, he
believed he was a good man.
Mr. Mackintosh had not canvassed
while Mr. Galliher was absent from
the riding, as he had promised not to.
His candidature was endorsed by
members of the Miners' and Railway-
mens' unions and hundreds of work-
iiigmcu had promised to support him.
lie claimed no credit for what he had
done for the union men at Rossland
(luring the strike. He would do the
same thing again. He knew he had the
gratitude of the men, but was not
trading ou that, for their votes would
como anyway. Some people had even
called him an agitator, because he
stood up for the workingnien.
Galllber was to blame for the late
date of the electiou in Kootenay, he
having voted down Mr. Bordeu's motion of putting nominationd*j surlier,
leaving polling dav the same as lu
other pines, (lalliher professed to
want ii uniform election day and then
when he had the opportunity to vote
for it had turned it down. So it was
with the alien labor bill. The Liberals had cutout all the essential clauses
and deliberately schemed to throttle
Mr. Mackintosh touched lightly on
tho Grand Trunk question, as the people knew all about it. It was a millstone around the neck of the government, and the people of the east, on
the 3rd, would surely condemn the
paralleling of the Intercolonial railway. He then dealt with the question
of better terms for B.C., and held tlatt
the east got everything and tho west
nothing.    It was most unjust.
Purity in politics was a cry with the
Liberals, yet look nt the disgraceful
record of that party in Ontario. Ho
Wanted purity in this election, and
warned the electors to keep both eyes
on the ballot box. He would not .take
his seat if won by trickery, neither
would he violate any promise after
J. A. Foley.
Mr. Foley was welcomed by the
audience and put up a neat aud intelligent talk for the Socialist candidate.
He was pleased with the Governor and
was glad the latter considered the
Socialists better than to call them
Anarchists. The various countries
were gradually adopting Socialist
ideas, especially Canada. Conservatives were helpiug tho Socialists by
denouncing the Liberals. Socialists
did not object to protection, so long as
it was in the interest of the people,bUt
Mr. Borden aud if the latter did not
stnnd by that creed, theu he would
tirely vote for against him. That was
no election pledge, it was a straight
promise. He then dealt with Mr. Po*
lev's accusation of Sir John Maedonald owning C.P.R. stock, that old cry
having been cleared up years ago. He
felt sorry to think Mr. Foley would
try to cast a stigma on the character
of one of the grandest meu God had
ever made. (Long and continued applause.)
Mr. Mackintosh refuted Mr. Foley's
charges against Premier Uoblin on
the Manitoba railway question, aud
then showed that Mr. Galliher's votes
In the house were invariably agaiast
the people and for corporations. The
Governor concluded with nu eloquent
appeal for the support of the voters
on election day.
The meeting closed with threo
cheers and a tiger for Mr. Mackintosh
and three more for Hou. Mr. Borden.
It was a vote-winning meeting.

it had a tendency to create trusts. His
party believed the government should
own everything and then protection
would not hurt.
Socialists stood pre-eminently for
the workingmen. He had once been
a Conservative and believed that party
would win if they would stand for
government ownership. He asked if
Leader   Borden  favored   Operating a
government road. If so. then the pro-
pie would be with them. But he
doubted the Conservatives, because of
Premier Roblin's actions In Manitoba.
Liberals, however, were far behind the
Conservatives    on   railway   matters.
They had promised not to alienate
public lands to private poople. yet
witness the Yukon steal stopped by
the senate.    The promises of  the old
parties wore not to be trusted, particularly the Liberals, and that was why
Socialists were lieing nominated in order to get honest government. The
initiative and referendum and the Socialist doctrine generally were explain
ed at length, and the New Zealand
legislation commended. They wanted
no tramps and no millionaires. So
cinlist candidates were a protest to the
present system of government, and In*
asked support for Mr. Baker.

His Majesty hns no time for thc
cultivation of the statelier stylo of
letter writing which characterized the
early decades of the last century.
Dut ho never finishM a word with an
unintelligible syllable, and does oot
observe tho practicu of referring lo
peoplo and places by their initial
letters, except In family notes, wben
he would not hesitate to write of
"O." or "V." 'Co his relatives In
Denmark, he rofcrs to Her hj chesty

and havo lieen perpetuated, Thus a
favorite form of subscription consists
of tho syncopated words, "Yrs. v.
Uf course, much of the King's letter-writing   is    delegated   to    Lord
Knollys, his private secretary.     llis
Lordship  is    a  remarkable  combination of tho old-world aristocrat and
the keen    and modern    man of business.   He is a spure man with crisp,
curling white hair, surmounting a refined and thoughtful face.   He has a
certain    picturesque    dignity and ic-
servo about him.   In his frock overcoat and silk hat he might be taken
for a beau of a hundred years     ago,
spick    nnd    spun,   and    bearing   lhe
marks of an inborn    courtliness   and
grace.   Thoso who meet Lord Knollys
outside his work know him as _ "inn
immaculate in dress,  precise in man-
nor and doportmont,   They should «eo
him In    his rooms   ut  Buckingham
Palace.    He  sits  there   in   shirt-sleeves,  cliffs tucked  up.  dealing With  His
Majesty's   correspondence and   other
work with  a celerity  and un astuteness  that    would  do   credit    to  lhe
keenest man of business in London,
The  King's    secretary    suys  little,
but when he speaks he goes straight
ta the point.    lie is a master of tiie
snub  in  its  various  phases,   as  botes

Sir Clmrlea Brooke, Sultan nf.Sarawak, Ovtr
70 Years of Age, Retiring to Knglaud.
Sir Chnrles Brooke, the only Englishman who can boast of being an
Asiatic .Monarch, and whose sovereignty over the Sultunato of .Sarawak, in the Island of ISornco, with
its population of nearly _ million, Is
recognized as subject to British
suzerainty, has just issued u proclamation appointing his eldest son
and heir, Vyner Urooto, to act as
Regent of Sarawak, Sir Charles,
who expressly declares that he does
not abdicate his throne, explains
that ago and growing Infirmities have
lod him to transfer tho tusk of administering the Government of his
Sultanate to his eldest son, who
bears tho tltlo of Hnjah Muda, and
who will from henceforth bo "entitled to use tho swallow-tail f.ng of
tho Sovereign on shore and on lund,
and likewise tho yellow umbrella,''
which is in Sarawak tlio emblem of
Sir Charles, who was formerly in
the British navy, is now over seventy years old, und will very soon retire to England to spend the remainder of his days in thu land of his
birth. Ho has been on the throne of
.Sarawak since 18(iS, and is entitled,
not only in tho Orient, but likewise
when he visits England, to the same
honors in tho shape of gun salutes,
sentinels, etc., as the grout vassal
rulers of llritish India. Sir Charles,
whose English title is due to his
Grand Cross of tho English Order of
.St. Michael and St. George, served in
the navy as Charles A. Johnson, und
assumed the name of Brooke on sue.
criodlng his uncle, Sir .las. Brooke,
the lirst ruler of Sarawak.
The lutter's story has often been
told. Ho was associated with the
lato Sir Harry Keppel in the expedition fitted out by Baroness Burdctt-
CoUttS for the suppression of piracy
in the Far East. Sixty or seventy
years ago, when steam navigation
was in its infancy, piracy played a
far moro serious role in maritime intercourse with the remote Orient
than to-day. In fact overy vessel
that had occasion to traverse tho
Straits nf -Malacca was compelled to
carry guns to ra*[«'l those Here*
-Malay, Chinese nnd Tonkinose pirates
who were tho scourge of those BOOS,
Lady Burdott-CouttS, at a considerable cost, fitted out. an armed naval
expedition for hunting tho pirates to
their lairs and exterminating them,
and placed it under the command of
Hurry Keppel and .James Brooke,
two young naval officers, 'lhe ex-
pedition proved eminently successful,
nnd while Keppel returned to civilization, Brooke remained in thn
'irient, and, having become associated with the Sultan ot Borneo, eventually became possessed of Sarawak,
which oecupr's a considerable portion
of tlie Island  of Horn. o.
Lady Burdctt-Coutts played a considerable role m this strange ventdro
of Brooke, supporting him with
money, and especially with political
influence in England. Sir Charl6s is
married to a Miss do Windt, whose
brother, Harry de Win.lt, is well

He was puzzling over tho difficulty of
perfecting the ordinary telegraphic
apparatus used on overhead wires,
which was not suited for the varying
current passing along cabins, The
lugging of the electric currents had
the affect of making them run together into one bottom current, with
Burfaco ripples, which Correspond to

AHo Carried a Knife Eighteen Yeara
and n Pencil Five Yeara.
Tho eoustnnt use of a pen point for
fourteen years, a penknife eighteen
years, nn oidiunry indelible lead peueil
live years nnd a key rlrc nineteen
years to the ordinary peHon sounds
incredible, but such ls the case with
Carl Burba, a clerk in the general customs ofliee hore.
Mr. Burba, who was ln the drug
business at New Hope for more than
ten years, ls uow using constantly a
pen point he secured, second bund,
while in the drug business, and since
he bus been at work for Uncle Sum he
has continued to use it, preferring it
to any other. During that time he has
worn out two penholders, but the point
is still in tho prime of condition, kept
so by tho care bestowed upon it by ita
A fellow clerk was discussing the
mntter of cure of pens yesterday, when
Mr. Burba remarked that any pen or
article of any kind would last for years
if given tbe proper cnre. To prove his
claim he drew from his pocket a knife
which ho had carried eighteen years.
The blades gave evidence of numerous
whettlngs, but not a gap or break
could be scon. The knife, Mr. Burba
said, had done a full share of work
since he hud owned lt, and is good for
many years yet
After exhibiting the knife Mr. Burba
drew forth a key ring bearing the date
of IS85. It is a souvenir of the Louisville exposition, was purchased as such
by Mr. Burba during the festal occasion and has since done constant service. Mr. Burba ha9 a special pocket
for all these articles nnd they may always be found there. He says he never breaks the point from a pencil, never
loans it but that ho watches it closely
nnd sees to It that It does not get
sway; never leaves the pencil, key ring
or knife lying on his desk, but replaces
them in their respective pockets wheu
not lu use, and by such Inviolate system and care he always has them
about him.

the ground as If by word of command.
This grove was called Into being by
the Empress Anna. One day from her

Tin* ii.nrm «if Victoria Palla.
How the Victoria falls Impress u visitor Is recorded In Miss c. w. Mackintosh's Journal of a tour in South Africa,
Miss Mackintosh snys: "We perceived
no hint of the falls, only seeing before
us a screen of rocky based, bright green
forest, apparently dosing in tbe river,
like a hike. Ten minutes' waif; brought
us to the camp, on u cliff which literally overhung tbe gorge, nnd we saw
the cataract thundering down into tlie
boiling pot at our feet.   The walls of
tlio chasm; 400 feet high, were spanned
by a rainbow. The charm of these fall's
lies not In the ono overwhelming crush
ns at Niagara, but in tbe cumulative effect of various glimpses, the matchless
beauty of the surroundings nnd tlie
str.'in..retie<is of the whole setting, but
chiefly in the columns of spray, called
the "thundering smoke" und In the
ever changing rainbows. The mile wide
river BUddenly drops Into a yawning
crack- ln tlio ground, stretching right
across tlio Stream at tight nnglcj t:i
tho banks, n foaming trough, quite
narrow, of which the walls rose 400
feet above the surface of the water."

Asphalt, in its natural form, ls too
brittlo whon cold and IDo sticky
when warm to make a serviceable
road, but whon mixed with sand,
gravel and tar. answers evory requirement. In Us natural state, It is
found in muny parts of tho world,
but in only one placo to perfection,
and flint Is thu Island of Trinidad,
ono of Great .Britain's numerous
possessions in tho Wost Indies.
Trinidad's tft'oat pitch lake, which
is the chiof wondor and attraction of
th« island, is situuted in u low,
sandy stretch of the southwest coast,
near' Capo Corbaray. The surrounding country is low and nuilnriol, in
striking contrast to the high hills
unit rich woodlands to the coast
further back.
The laborors are all negroes, even
the coolios shrinking from tho heat
and low fov«rs of tho placo.
Tho lako it9«lf is about a mile in
diameter, hard at tho edges and
softening toward tho middle. Thn
surface is continually changing, apparently from subterranean action.
Little oases of dry lend, nnd even
trees and shrubs, will disappear in u
singlo night and fresh Islands of soil
bo reared  in other flaces.
The lake is in nil probability mordy
an unusually largo deposit of bitumen or soft pp&l, that has undergoiio
its transformation from decaying
vegetable mutter in contact with
water, and too nuar thn surface for
the oarth pressure above to harden
it thoroughly.
Hundred* qf negroes the yeur round
toll at tho lak«>'a edge, taking out
cargo after cargo from lho supply
that scorns never to diminish.
Tho asphalt cruRt is broken up
with picks und crow bars, and is
loaded on dump-carts, drawn by a
singlo mule. 'iho tarts crunch
through _ lonif, wiiwly rond down to
th" wharf at thn wat-T's odgi', where
thu load is dumped and carried by
wheel barrows on board of lighters,
which in turn carry it out to ships,
lying a half mllo out in tho bho.U
The rough lumps of [lickings aro
hoisted on board in lmskets uud piled in the hold, where th'\v sink

"Postilion de la Trappo" read an
ancient sign swinging undw thu trees
of an Oka street. Oka, you may
know, is a quaint littlo villago on
tho eastern bank of tho Ottawa River reached only by the river steamers
and within its boundaries aro to be
found such oddly di versa elements _*
Algonquin Indians, French-Canadians,
summer tourists. Catholic sisior-r
hoods, and the Brothers in White,
who constitute thu Trappist community.
My postillion—a shock-headed lad
of exclusively French speech—proved
to bo a veritable Jehu as a driver,
and the sturdy posy was equally
rockless in his mad charges up und
down hills, over bridges and around
passing vehicle*, and his passenger
was thankful thut we ran into but
ono fence and hit but one troc. Fortunately the fence |,ost gave way instead of the carriage wheel, und the
three-mile journey to the nionustery
ended with the loss of only a hat, a
whip and some breath.
Tho Silent Drothprs give tbe wayfarer a hospitable welcomo. Thero
aro thero lifty in the, Order, together
with fifty lay brothers. The former
aro clad in white; the latter in
lirown. in addition, there are forty
young men attending their agricultural school.
Here the Trapplsts till an 800-acro
furm, „nd a fairer scene Canada cannot show than this highly cultivated
area, with its orchards and vineries,
its lioltls of golden grain sweeping
up to the bases of the Two Mountains, and tho fringe of green forest
thut encloses the furm.
Tho members of tho order are subject to rigidly ascetic rules, rising at
two in the morning, eating but two
meals a day, of a strictly vegetarian
diet, and retiring ut eight in the
evening to theV humble pullets in __
attic. Four hours of the eighteen
aro spent in the fields; tho remainder
in religious exercises and study. If
oae may Judge by the porsonal appearance of tne Brothers, this mode
of lifo results in the best of health.
"Wo ncvaire sick," said my broun-
gowned guide, ond so it would seem.
It is strange and interesting sight
to view these silent workers ialii'owa
and white, with their sandalled feet,
rope girdles and broad-brimmed hats
laboring in the gardens and on tho
farm, or to see them fall suddenly on
their knees, even though at work,
whilo tho Father in chargo performs
the ollice of the hour. Whatever
their occupation, it must be suspended when the great bell rings out its
summons.: Stranger still is it to
wateh the single file of worshippers,
looking ghostly in their long white
robes, as they march to thoir chapel
in' tho early hours of tlio morning
whilo tho world around is yet asleep.
Tho Trappist farm has a beautiful
setting, overlooking, on tho south
nnd west, the I «ke of Two Mountains, tho Ottawa and, in tbo far
distance, the St. Lawrence River.
Torched near the summit of the twin
hills nro throe chapels that show
strikingly white against the green
foliage for n long distanco. They are
part of the series of seven chapels
that line the mountain road—_ road
that Is crowded on the great day of
tho Trappists—the l ith of September, when the Fete du Calvatra attracts thousands of worshippers,
who. In tho truo spirit of tho pilgrim, worship at all the Stations of
the Cross that lead to the mountain
top,—Frank Yelgh in Toronto Cilojo.
Our rilud Spot.
On tho back of thc eyeball ls a peculiar expansion of the lilros of the
optic nerve, which is culled the Ity
tina. Every part of this ls not.
equally sensitive to tho action of
light. A small portion, where the
organization is most perfect, is railed from ivs color the yellow spot;
this is only 1-G,000th of an inch in
diameter, yet it produces tho most
perfect sensation of vision. A littlo
nearer to tha n.,su is another s;>ot,
which, though full of fibres of tho
optic nerve, is absolutely Insensible
to light, and is therefore called the
"blind" spot. This can b« easily
proved by well known experiments
on paper, of which advertisers of patent medicines have availed tlu'in-
R'lvea. Helmholt7. in his lecture tells
us that "thia blind spot is so largo
thut it might prevent our seeing 11
moons if placed side by sids, or a
man's face at a distance of only six
or seven feet," and that, "Alarlotto,
who discovered tho phenomenon,
amused Charles II. ar.d his court by
showing them how thoy might see
each otlier with their heads cut od."

C. H. Mackintosh, Conservative; W.
A. Galliher, Liberal; and James A.
Baker, Socialist, wero nominated in
Nelson, Tuesday, to contest the dominion election, to be held iu Kootenay on Nov. 22. The light is no vv on
iu earnest.
According to ihe government blue
book, lumber to the value of $250,000
is being brought into Canada each
.mouth free of duty. Were an adequate duty imposed on lumber, it
w;ould revive the industry iu B.C.and,
where stagnation now reigns, activity
and progress would prevail. What a
difference it would make to Slocan
were the lumbering industry floui-
jshing. Mills would go up and scores
ot men would be employed. The
Liberals refuse a duty ou American
lumber and the country is suffering.
W.A. Galliher points to the increase
in the output of lead ore and says the
peoplo ought to be thankful for the
flourishing condition of the mining
industry, because of the lead bounty.
Apart from 9 few Grit worshippers,
the peoplo of the Slocau, at least, are
far from thankful for the bounty, for,
iu popular effect, it has proven a dismal failure. Population has uot increased, business has not expanded,
and property has not been enhanced
in value. Since the bounty went into
effect the very opposite has been the
case. And if ope excepts the leases
through the Slocnn, how few are the
properties that are being operated.
Were the bounty such an extreme
benefit, why are there so many wet
ore mines left idle by their owners?
The lead bounty is lx>ing made a political question for thm purpose of assisting in the election of a Grit candidate; and it has been kept in the front
for months past by political agitators,
some of whom think so much of the
bounty as to leave their mines idle.
But through all the talk of the lead
bounty, there is an important point
that has escaped public notice, and
that is: the main beneficiaries of the
government's generosity are a combination of political supporters who aro
waxing still richer at the expense of
(the public. The increased output of
Jead is mainly due to the operation of
the St. Eugene mine, nt Moyie, all
other bounty claimants coming iji for
mere flea bites in comparison. These
J**»t. Eugene politicians have again and
again pulled the wires and the Slocan
men havo jumped to do their bidding.
The enlargement of the bounty to embrace lead concentrates shipped to
Europe, but not to the States, is a
a crying shame, for those who benefit
thereby are those snme wealthy politicians back of the St. Eugeno. Canadians ure furnishing money to build
up smelting industries in a foreign
country at the expense of their own.
Pleasant thought, isn't it? Again,
since tho bounty went into effect.inine
owners claim freight rates, treatment
charges and the cost of supplies have
all   increased,   therefore    the   small
•Upper is gradual); getting into a
worse condition than liefore. The big
shippers get better rates in freight and
treatment, while the small man pays
the larger toll. Then, ns the output
of lead increases as it will by the
operation of the Sullivan, North Star,
and Eastern Canadian mines; for the
bounty is not confined to Kixitenay.as
Galliher implies in his speeches— the
ratio of bounty decreases. Increased
charges and decreased bounty lx*nefits
will thus Ixi the portion of the small
mining man. Let any unbiased man
tako a trip through the Lardeau and
Slocan camps and he will be convinced that the evidences of _ flourishing
order of things an few and far between. Railway travel, express business, nnd postofflce receipts have ali
fallen off. In popular effect ttm lead
bounty lin*. been n fnlltiro   Ton roiieh
