The once lethargic  people of British Columbia have become aroused to the.necessity for a change. The old, fossilized order of things  must g*ive way to a more progressive form of government.  Next Saturday will introduce a new epoch in the history of  the province. Turnerism and Dunsinuirism will give away  to honesty and progress. ,  The government lack   the   genius   of  Theodore Davie.  "' They have invented no scheme to hoodwink   the   people   of  the Island and the untrammelled people will vote according  to their honest convictions.  Alberni is doubtful. Huff the government supporter is  a very estimable private citizen but a weak, vacillating-  politician.    He probably will be elected.  Comox is also doubtful. There are a number of sturdy  electors in the district who will resent the- candidature of  James Dunsmuir. But Dunsmuir has too many men in his  employ and his chances for election are excellent.  North Nanamio, the special preserve of the Dunsmuirs,  will return John Bryden, son-in-law of the Dunsmuirs.  Nanamio City will return the opposition candidate Dr.  McKechnie by a large majority.  South Nanamio will be a close constituency. Dr. Wal-  kein will be defeated by Ralph Smith the opposition candidate. ;-.,.'  Cowichan will return Wm. Herd the opposition candidate. .."���'.  Eisquimalt will return Hon. D. W. Higgins and W. H.  Hay ward the two opposition candidates. Their opponents  are Dunsmuirs'solicitor, Hon. C. E}. Pooley, and W.F.  Bullen.  North Victoria is solid for the .opposition candidate T.  W. Paterson. He will defeat J. P. Booth by a large  majority.  South Victoria will be close. Hon. D. W. Egberts the  attorney-general will probably defeat J. Stewart Yates,  Victoria   City   will  be  divided.    Beaveu   and Gregory  will probably be elected and   Premier   Turner   and    Harry  Helmcken. '.'-,.  On the Mainland the government will be- hopelessly  beaten. Vancouver will return three opposionists, probably  four but Mayor Garden's personal popularity will probably  carry him against Chas. E}. Tisdall who is a new man in  public life.  Unfortunately there has been a division* in the opposition ranks in Dewdney. Unless We a them can be induced  to retire, McBride the government candidate will be elected.  The light will also be close in Chilliwack but the opposition  will carry four out of the five New Westminster seats.  '   Eyiist L/illooet will return J. D. Prentice   the   opposition  candidate and West   Ivillooet   will  return   A. W. Smith the  government candidate.  The three Yales are solid  for  the  opposition.    Thanks  to F. J.  Dearie's   aggressive  fig-ht   Hon. Geo. B. Martin is  defeated and Messrs. Semliri and  Graham  are sure of election.  .*."..'. ���'���,���'���  .The government .won'tget  a smell in  West  Kootenay.  Four opposition members will be returned.

The doctor intends engaging in private   practice   after that  date.    The announcement does not come  as a   surprise; the  wonder is that the   doctor  did  not  take this step long ago.  The Greenwood hospital would do credit to any city   in   the  province.    It was established fully a  year before the development of the district wairanted such an institution.    Notwithstanding this it has received nothing  but  discouragement.    The Turner government year after refused   to   give  any assistance.    Money was lavished on similar institutions  in other parts of the province   but  the   Greenwood hospital  never received a dollar.    No institution deserved more, consequently it was treated with indifference   by   the   Turner  government.  The residents of the district appeared as indifferent':  about the hospital as they generally are regarding all public matters. The majority of them thanked God they were  never sick and allowed Dr. Jakes to assume a responsibility  in the care of the sick which should have been borne by the  entire district.    The natural result followed.  The necessity for a.-hospitabmust be apparent to every  one. The district cannot be without a place where the sick  and injured can be treated. Caring for the sick is not a  profitable business. It takes money to run a hospital. The  care of the sick is however a duty which the public, not the  individual, should undertake. Now that Dr. Jakes has  found that he can no longer shoulder the responsibility of.  the entire public, the people will probably come to the conclusion that it is time they should do their duty.  As far as the government is concerned it is useless to  say anything-further. Fortunately for the province and  particularly so for this district the Turner government has  but a few more days to live. A change will place this district on the same footing as other sections of the. province  and hospitals and other public institutions will receive the  treatment they deserve.  In the meantime we-would humbly suggest that the people quit trying to -'siuff" their public duties upon individuals and take steps to pi'operiy arrange for the care of the sick. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.   m.mu.  i  GREENWOOD AND   DISTRICT.  J. R. Brown of Osoyoos came over  on "Wednesday as a witness in the  Witte perjur*y case.  Rev. Mr. Guy who until a few weeks  ago resided in Greenwood is seriously  ill in Vancouver. ..���;'���  James Schubert superintendent of  roads arrived in Greenwood by Wednesday's Penticton stag-e.  Messrs.   Neil   Lamorit   arid   George  McKague   have   opened a   tinshop on  ���Copper street and  are  prepared   to do  all kinds of work appertaining to their  trade.  -  One of the boilers for the Mother  Eode is now on its way from Marcus.  It required 14 horses to move it off the  ferry at Marcus. Fear -is expressed  that the ferry at Hall's will not be able  to' carry such an enormous weight.  manager  of the B. C.  Mr. F. Keffer  Copper Company last week took up the  bond on the Primrose adjoining the  Mother Eode. The amount of the  bond was $7,000. Messrs. W. G. Mc-  Mynn and J. Schofield beingthe owners.  Messrs. McDonald and Sullivan have  struck some rich looking ore on the  Smuggler claim in Wellington camp.  Messrs. McDonald and Sullivan are  experienced miners from Rossland and  they are of the opinion that the Smuggler is likely to prove one of the big  properties of the district.  Karl Nelson who was working with  R. Robinson on the Northern Belle and  Golden Grant claims, Pass Creek  returned to Kaslo this week. Messrs.  Nelson and Robinson ran 57 feet of a  tunnel across both claims and uncovered a large lead of rich looking quartz  ore carrying copper and g-old. Mr.  Robinson will continue to work the  properties.      [ ���  , The small residence of Mr. Munroe  on the Garland addition was destroyed  b3r fire on Tuesday morning. Mr.  Munroe was at work and Mrs Munroe  was berry picking when the fire started. All the household goods;, were destroyed as well as the building. The  citizens contributed generously to enable the unfortunate family to make a  new start at housekeeping.  The police court had no small audience on Tuesday when Police Magistrate Hallet adjudicated upon a number of liquor cases. The proprietors of  the brewery pleaded guilty to selling  beer by retail and were fined $25.  Hotel keepers appeared to answer to  the charg*e of selling liquor on Sunday--.  The charge was not proven but the  Magistrate announced that as drunken  men had been seen coming from the  hotels on Sundajr no liquor selling on  that day would be allowed. Gambling  in saloons was also tabooed.  i 'xyj-.-car tzprKxzxztzjTzxxvKttzx  n.TEiSKcrc22i2ra  cj*-'^fe^vc^  A  SITTING of  the Comity   Court  of  Yale  ���will  be  holclen  At Fairview, B.C.,on Monda3% the 15th  day of July, 1898,  At the hour of 11 o'clock in the forenoon.

JAMES    COOPER    MANUFA^ COMPANY,   Limited  MONTREAL,  P. Q  Branch Office, ROSSLAND, B, C,  JAMES D, SWORD, Manager,  A   HOT   MEETING.  W. J. Nelson, McKane's silver tong--  -ued orator will not forget his reception  in Greenwood. By abuse and threats  he succeeded in so enraging the larg-e  crowd who had gathered in Rendell's  hall on Monday evening-, that he was  hissed and hooted"and it was with difficulty he could g-et hearing-. While Mr.  McKane was ill at ease and delivered  a weak and halting- speech he secured  a respectful hearing-. There were  plenty of wits in the hall���men well  posted on provincial politics and. they  picked Nelson's bubbles almost before  he blew them.  Gerald T. Hodgson took the chair  without an invitation from the audience and seated on the platform with  him was his twin brother, in affliction,  Andrew Eeamy returning-officer.  W. J. Nelson was the first speaker.  He started in by stating- that he and  Mr. McKane had been chasing- around  the country for two weeks trying- to  catch Mr. Martin and they had never  succeeded. Greenwood was only a  small portion of the district and would  not cut much figure in the election.  He then refered to Mr. McKane's platform which he cooly informed the audi-.  ence had been stolen by James Martin.  He delivered a eulog-y on the Turner  government who he maintained had  done much for this district. (Eoud  cries of��Oh ! Oh !)  A Voice���You are not posted.  Mr. Nelson then essayed a defence of  the liberal railway policy of the Turner  g-overnment (derisive laughter) and  made the assertion that Corbin wanted  two years to commence and seven years  to build into Boundary Creek. He  said the government had spent much,  money in building schools and public  works and the reason why Boundary  Creek had been neglected was because  the people were foolish enough to  oppose the government. (Hoots and  laughter).  Several voices���"No threats."  Mr. Nelson then told the audience  that with the exception of Cassiar  every constituency in the province was  formed on the basis of population.  This was too funny, the audience simply shrieked with laughter.  He then told the audience  that F. C.  Cotton was a murderer of the Queen's  English���a mediocre and then proceeded to roast the Boundary Creek  Times and Mr. Ross., Mr. Ross was a  man who had his hand out and he had  been creditably informed that he had  received$1,000 from Corbin and "more  in Spokane.  The audience almost to a man resented this kind of political warfare. Mr.  Nelson was hooted and hissed. There  were loud cries of "take it back" and  the speaker was forced to turn his attention to something else before he  was allowed to proceed. Shortly afterwards Mr. Nelson told a filthy story  which drove a couple of ladies who  were present from the room and then  offered to stand a drink for the whole  crowd.  Mr. Nelson spoke about the  reforms  necessary in the mineral law which he  called the criminal law  explaining; the "  slip by stating that he was accustomed  to defend criminals.  A voice���You are defending one now.  (Eoud laughter.) ���'...��  He took the audience into his confidence and informed them that he had  been many months in Toronto without  a brief. He threatened the people with  awful things should they dare to oppose the Turner government and maintained they would stay disfranchised  for a century if they did not support  the Turner government. He resumed  his seat in silence after speaking one  and three-quarter hours.  Duncan Ross after listening to Mr.  Nelson was very much reminded of the 'k  fox's description of a cowbell���"A long ^  tongued, rattle brained fellow." (Eoud  laughter and applause.) He refered to  the personal charges made by Mr. Nelson against himself and stated that the  assertion that he received $1,000 or any  other sum from Mr. Corbin or any one  else except the people of Boundary  Creek was a deliberate and unqualified  lie and that the man who made the  assertion was an unmitig-ated liar.  (Eoud applause.) Mr. McKane was  very much mistaken if he expected to  gain votes in Boundary Creek by bringing a "wind bag" to make unsubstani-  ated charges against residents of the  district.  Mr. Ross pointed out that Mr. James  Martin had waited in Grand Forks for  Mr. McKane and had met hini in a public meeting there. He said that Mr.  Nelson was equally unreliable in his  other statements. The claim that  James Martin had stolen McKane's  platform was a tissue of falsehood.  Mr. Martin's platform was adopted at  the opposition convention on May 8th.  It was published May 9th and Mr. McKane's platform never appeared until  June 27th.    (Hear! hear!  Mr. Ross pointed out Mr. McKane's  position. He was pledged to support  the main policy of the Turner government at the same time, advocating reforms which had been discouraged and  refused by the Turner government.  He also refered to the railway policy of  the Turner government and to the redistribution bill and closed by an appeal to the people to remain firm in  their determination to fight for good  government reg-ardless of the threats  of the windy advocate of Turnerism.  The awful   roasting   which Mr. Nel-  . son had  received  from the   audidence  apparently    had   made   Mr.   McKane  nervous    and   uncomfortable   for   his  speech    was   a     disappointment.    He  spoke   but  brieflv   and said but little.  He told the audience about Jim Martin  refusing to  run  as  mayor of  Vernon  and maintained that he was taking the  correct stand in this election so far  as  Kootenay  was concerned.    What   the  people wanted was a  good man to re p-  resent them.    He denied being a straw  man, called "Mitch" a Scotsman much  to the amusement of   the   crowd   and  closed by an appeal for votes.  . As the hour was then  late,   no other  speakers appeared.    The audience gave  three  rousing cheers  for James Martin, three   more   for The  Boundary  Creek   Times and also three   for   the  chairman.    Some  one suggested three  for McKane but no one responded.  Vote for Martin and Graham,  F. S. Barnard, ex-M. P. for Cariboo  district who arrived in Greenwood last  week left on Tuesday for Nelson. Mr.  Barnard was well pleased with the appearance of Greenwood and showed his  confidence in the future of the town by  investing in real estate. He is of the  opinion that Greenwood should be made  the divisional point on the line of the  C. P. R. as it is the centre of the important mining district. p  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  jLvuutmjLamxmMj&  11  GREENWOOD AiND  DISTRICT.

John McKane, Joe Windbag Nelson,  Q. C,   and   the   sub-treasurer   of   the  campaign   committee,   were  last  seen  on   the   Colville   Indian    reservation.  They were making  frantic endeavors  to   put   as   much   distance  as possible  between    themselves    and    Boundary  creek.    Evidently they had   no  desire  to meet a second   audience   in  the district, for they neglected  to   attend the  Midway meeting called by themselves.  On   Monday    morning    Mr.   Miller  came to The Times office  for posters  announcing  a   meeting   in   McNicol's  hall at Midway on  Tuesday  evening.  Two loads of Greenwood  electors went  down in  the   evening  to  take  in   the  .meeting.      When   they  reached   Midway they were  told  by  the  residents  that, Messrs. McKane   and Nelson had  shaken   Midway  dust   from   off  their  feet   about   two   hours   before.      Mr.  Jacobs had told them a story about an  enraged Irishwoman who had told certain Irish haters  to  go to   h���1,   they  would   find   no   Irish   there,  and   suggested the same warm retreat to escape  the opposition.    "An   excellent  idea,"  said Mr. Nelson.   " Iyet us go to Grand  Forks." e  The electors of Midway were anxious  however to hear public questions discussed, and a meeting was called in  McNicol's hall. Considering the short  notice there was an excellent attendance. Mr. Jacobs was voted to the  chair. He regretted, amid laughter,  that lie would not now have an opportunity to give the little speech he had  prepared for the special benefit  of the  government speakers. He was pleased  to announce, however, that he had  gone to Mr. Graham's meeting at  Rock Creek the evening before, and  that everything appeared encouraging  in Bast Yale. [Applause.] Mr. Graham delivered a ver3r able address.  He was followed by Mr. , Paton of  FairviewY who confessed he knew  nothing about provincial politics. Mr.  Paton was unmercifully twitted about  the government not paying the road  men.  ' W. S. Keith of Greenwood, at the request of the audience, gave a graphic  description of the Greenwood meeting.  He also reviewed the chances of the  opposition,pointing out that they never  had a better opportunity to defeat the  Turner , government. He expressed  the hope that the people of Midway  would do their share towards securing  a change for the better.   [Applause.]  Thos. Hardy was the  next  speaker.  He made a laughing   leference to  the  flight of the'governnient speakers.    He  criticized the  speech of Mr. Nelson on  the evening previous.    Mr. Nelson appeared to   assume   that no one who did  not agree with his views was possessed  of any sense.    Mr.   McKane was a different  stamp   of  man   and while   his  politics  were  bad he appeared   to   be  acquainted with the ways of a gentleman.    Mr.   Nelson  made  a great mistake  when   he   attempted to threaten  and drive and bulldoze people those in  whose veins  runs  Anglo-Saxon blood.  (Ivoud applause.)    Mr. McKane the following morning had admitted that Mr.  Nelson's speech was a mistake, that it  had  hurt   his   cause   and that he was  very sorry Nelson had made  the statements he did. . Mr. Hardy then turned  his attention to the  railway   policy   of  the government.    He  pointed out in a  very able manner that  from the start  the  Turner   government had   delayed  railway construction   and   saddled the  province with debt.    He refered to the  Island railway   where  the  Dunsmuirs  secured   one-third   of   the  Island free  from taxation, for the construction of a  railway which was never completed; to  the    Shuswap   &   Okanagan   railway  which was delayed for   years and   the  best bargain the government could get  was to saddle the province with $40,000  a year to pay interest and sinking fund  on the bonds; to the Nakusp   & Slocan  to the British   Columbia Southern and  Col. Baker's connection therewith and  to the iniquitous legislation in connection  with  the  Cassiar  Central where  free miners practically became the servants of a railway company.  Mr. Hardy pointed out other weak  points in the government's record and  after delivering a very able address  sat down amid the loud applause of the  audience.  Mr. Jacobs then stated that Mr. Graham had told his audience the eveniner  previous of the very active measure  which was taken to push the construction of the road from Penticton to  Boundan- Creek. The magnificent  construction plant already at Penticton consisted of eig'ht horses some feed  for the same, a few tools and   no shov  els nor scrapers. This was the plant  to construct 100 miles of road while Mc-  Kenzie and Mann had sent 13 carloads  of plant to construct 50 miles of railway in the east;    (Hear!    hear!)  Mr. McNicol spoke briefly. He would  do all he possibly could to defeat the  Turner government.  Mr. Hain pointed out that the government had made no efforts to meet  the requirements of the district. He  instanced the flimsy ferry that had.  been built across the West Fork and  which had not yet been paid for. He  intended to support James Martin..  (Applause.)  Jas. McQueen of Grand Forks was  the next .speaker. He was greeted with  loud cheers when he announced that  Grand Forks would give James Martin  a  big majority.  Duncan Ross spoke briefly. He  pointed out the inconsistencies of John  McKane's candidature and urged the  people to poll every vote on Saturday.  Mr. Jacobs briefly pointed out the  absurdity of Mr. Nelson's criticisms of  Mr. Cotton. Three rousing cheers  were given for Mr. Martin. A vote of  thanks was tendered to the chairman  and one of the most enthusiastic and  successful meetings of the campaign  was brought to a close.

S?UHfir.,l.'�����HMf  TIME   TO   WAKE   UP,  The very honorable Wm. Mulock  postmaster-general has sure.!y gone to  sleep. His officers including* the post-  office inspector for the province of British Columbia have followed his example  Greenwood today is in a worse position  as far as mail service is concerned  than it was two years ag*o. It is a most  striking- commentary upon the laxity  of post office officials that after repeated promises from them that arrang-e-  iiients would be made to maintain a  daily service, mail reaches here but  three times a week.  Now the postoffice department should  either attend to this matter at once or  announce that they do not intend to  establish a daily servise. If the latter,  the people will do in the federal matters as they do in provincial matters,  carry out work which should be undertaken by the government and pay  for hauling the mail themselves. The  postoffice department appear afraid to  say no and to lazy to do its duty.  We think that since Mr. Bostock's  attention has been called to this matter he will shake up the sleepy post-  office department. He has always  taken an active interest in looking  after the wants of his constituents and  we believe he will act promptly in this  case.  In this connection we desire to point  out that no mail reached Greenwood  from Rossland since Saturday until today. .__   A Heavy Purchaser.  During Mr. F. S. Barnard's visit  here he purchased real estate to the  extent of $5,000 and gave contracts for  the erection of substantial buildings  on the lots purchased. Among Mr.  Barnard's were two lots on Copper  street near the International, two lots  on Government street opposite Mr.  Barrett's residence a lot on Government street opposite The B. C. Times'  office and a lot on Copper street near  the tailor shop.    These properties were  secured through the Townsite company  and Mr. Barrett. Mr. Barnard intends erecting business blocks on the  majority of his lots.  Mr. John Keough of the B. G. mine  was also a heavy purchaser of Greenwood real estate this week. He purchase the block on which Munroe's  bookstore stands also some property  on Copper street. The deal was made  through Mayor Wood.  Rev. Mr. Oswald arrived in Greenwood last week to take charge of the  Presbyterian mission here.

SglttiaieSl&BSaea  I  r  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES;  OFF   TO   THE   WAR.  A most enjoyable gathering- was  held in Rendell .& Go's, hall oh Wednesday evening* when about fifty of  Mr. J. P. Harlan's friends tendered  him a complimentary smoker. Mr.  Harlan leaves to enlist in the regular  army of the United States arid fight  for his country in Cuba. He is one of  the oldest residents of the district and  the many flattering*  references  to him.  during*   the   evening*   showed   that he  ������.���������.���[��� ���  made .��� ma'hy friends during* his residence here.' Indeed he stated that his  was no ordinary "send off." Other  soldiers received the plaudits of their  own countrymen, but he was in the  peculiarly fortunate position of receiving* an ovation from representatives of  the thistle, the rose, the shamrock and  the-maple leaf.  During* the evening* many patriotic  and humorous song's were sung*; some  excellent speeches were also delivered.  The loyal Britisher appeared to enthuse over the war as much as the  Americans. The demonstration was  probably more on account of Jack Harlan's personal popularity than because  of the excitement occasioned by the  present war.  Mr. Harlan belongs to a family of  soldiers and in all probability he will  make a mark for himself in Cuba unless he is unfortunate enough to be a  mark   of   a   Spaniard.    Bven if he re-  y.  turns as General Harlan he expects to  re-visit Boundary Creek. He promised the boys that if he could find any  iron capping* in Cuba, he would stake  them all in.  NOTES  Boundary Creek will make a fight on  Saturday next for her political rig-hts.  Her champion is Mr. James Martin.  The victory will be most decisive if*  every elector will poll his vote and sees  that his neighbor does the same.  A vote for James Martin means a  vote for a new order of things, for the  expenditure of a fair share of money  upon needed public works, for proper  representation in the parliament of the  country and for that consideration  which ought to be accorded a free people living* in a free country.  A vote for John McKane is a vote  for Turnerism, for Dunsmuirism, for  the Chinese, for viscious legislation,  for departmental neglect, for political  inequality, for monopolies,���a vote  ag*ainst the plain people,���a vote for  the classes.  Be not like dumb driven cattle. Be  a man, a patriot, a loyal Boundaiw  Creeker and vote for James Martin.  Magistrates Court.  On Wednesday before James Kerr,  J. P., Theo. Wittt was charged with  perjury. The case arose out of litig*a_  tion in connection with assessment  work on a mineral claim. A. Iveamy  appeared for the prosecution and J. P.  McLeod and A. S. Black for the defense. The magistrate held that there  was not sufficient evidence to commit  for trial and dismissed the charg*e.  The same day J. Tormey was charged with threatening the life of R. Don-  egan. He was bound over in two sureties of $250 each to keep the peace for  one year.  Rev. Thos. Oswald will hold service  in Rendell & Co's. hall on Sunday  evening next at eight o'clock.

Andrew  LVeamy   is   anything   but a  prudent man.    The miserable pittance  that   is  given   to   a   deputy-returning  officer is surely  not  sufficient   inducement for a lawyer, a venerable lawyer,  to act the blind  partisan while clothed  with a commission to  act  impartially.  But   Mr.   Leamy's   conduct  since  receiving  the   appointment  would  lead  one to suppose that  he  has  been   paid  to make himself  obnoxious   in   the interests Of the  government, and  not to  act   as   an   impartial   public   servant.'  When   a   returning   officer   goes   to   a  party   convention,  takes   a  seat  on a  platform  with   part3--   men,   sneers at.  statements of  political  opponents, he  shows that he is peculiarly unfitted for  the, position to which he   has   been appointed.    The duties of  the  returning  officer    are    important.      He    is    the  guardian of the people's ballots ; he is  supposed to see that the people's views  as -expressed  through   the  ballot  box  are not tampered with.    What security  have the   people   that   the   returning  officer will do his duty, when, since his  appointment, he has shown  himself to  be a bitter partizan?    The distrust becomes   more   acute   when   it   is known  that   the    Greenwood    votes   will   be  placed in  charge  of   a .man  who has  -made every effort  to show  that  he is  bitterly opposed to views of ninety per  ���cent, of those who are forced to entrust  their ballots to his tender mercies.  It is surely worth more than the  few dollars paid to a returning officer  for a professional man to show that he  is unacquainted with the ethics of his  profession, as far as they relate to a  lawyer acting in a public capacity.  jr      a  a       a  Is the Best Scotch Whisky  -AND-  The Best Canadian.

With partisan returning   officers the  ballot boxes will stand watching-.   /  The   hours  of   polling* on   Saturday,  will   be   between   '8.a.. m. and 4 p.   m.  Let ever}*vote be polled.  See that your ballott is placed in the  box before leaving the polling booth.  The Turner government's tastes run  to Chinaman and long stockings.  Electors registered in Rossland and  residing in Boundary Creek are ag-ain  reminded that,they can vote at Greenwood or at* any other polling-booth in  the district.  The much lauded Penticton & Boundary Creek railway is to be constructed with eight horses and a bale of hay.  The Turner government',. must have  the hig-hest appreciation of the credulity of the lOast Yale electors.  MORE   RAILWAY   BLUFF.  "It   seems   doubtful,   if  even in the  Penticton-Boundary    section    of    the  Vancouver, Victoria and-Lastern Railroad,   immediate   "business   is really  meant"   in, the  way   of  construction.  What is now being done   is,   it   would  appear, merely  by way of an electioneering   "blind"   or   bluff.    Thus    we  learn .on,good authority, that  but nine  men were sent out   from  Penticton, to  make a beginning- of the work.    They  had with them wagon teams,   but only  two shovels in all.    After "making believe" for a little while, to the  g-eiieral  amusement of the people of the district  it is stated that the nine  stalwarts are  passing- the time profitably and withal  not   unpleasantly     by    engaging     in  freighting     work.    They    were    only  sent for show and the show has  failed  to draw.    That is all.    A  very similar  bit of by-play is about to take place on  the New  Westminster-Chilliwack  section of the proposed short line to Kootenay.    There  will,   however,   be more  verisimilitude   about  the  latter effort,  as something of a trial   line   surveyor  surveys will be run by a d.uly qualified  Provincial Land Surveyor.    That how  ever implies nothing-  in the way of actual   and  immediately   following  construction, which is  what the people of  the   district want but will not get.    In  return the Turner Government just as  certainly will fail to get their   votes.���  News-Advertiser.  r*i ���*-***'v*rar**il'tt*-***��������� it**""���"-***������������� i-g-ww������������������ ^-nm-i^. j i p.11 ��� i-m-tti-t '���*ir-w -t-ittitt*'fr%  ��  -Q^o>=D-  SuBSCRIRTiON,   SOC.

The electors of 3H}ast Yale should not  be slow in making a choice next Saturday. If the record of the government does not force them into voting  for Donald Graham, the government  candidate Price Allison certainly will.  There is no comparison between the  two candidates. Donald Graham is a  bright, intelligent.. gentleman who  made an admirable member and who  commanded the highest respect on  both sides of the house. Price Ellison  is a pompous ignoramus. As a legislator he would be a dismal failure ; he  would certainly make an excellent voting machine but a miserable representative for IDast Yale. Fortunately for  the district he has,not the slightest  chance of being elected. , Mr. Graham's  services during the last four years entitle him to the votes of all the people  in the district.  VOTE . FOR   JAMES   MARTIN.  Llectors should not become careless  because there is a certainty that Mr.  .James Martin will be elected. Lvery  vote should be polled as air indignant  protest against the treatment received  from the government. A larg-e opposition vote from this section of the constituency vHll bring* the district into  prominence. Unfortunately many residents properly qualified neglected to  register thier votes and consequently  the vote from Boundary Creek will not  be as "large as it. ought to be ; hence  the very great necessity for polling-  every vote on the list.  It is scarcely credible that any intelligent elector, knowing-the record.of  the Turner government as far as this  district is concerned Will cast his vote  for the government candidate. Mr.  Martin is a man who will make "every ���  effort to secure justice for Boundary  Creek and a unanimous vote from here  will  the district.  encourag-e.   him   in   his. tig-lit for  ��� ON.-'GUARD   FOR   THE   PEOPLE.  The Vancouver World professes a  fear that if Hoxi.oToseph Martin comes  into proximity to the British Columbia  treasury .-a dire and terrible emptiness  is all that will remain inside the walls  thereof.  The enemies of Hon. Joseph Martin  are nearly all of the class which empties public treasuries for private profit.  Canadians who are as anxious to  guard-' the asserts in the Dominion  treasury as the. Vancouver World is to  g-uard the assets in the provincial  treasury, would feel that their interests were a good deal more secure if  Hon. Joseph Martin were .closer to the  treasury at Ottaw;..  If Ontario were .selfish there would  be no sentiment against the British  Columbia government in this province.  A number of Ontario gentleman have  found that their dealings with the  British Columbia government and its  friends put them in pa3' ore from the  start. The public resources of British  Columbia  have   been   diverted   to   the  work of making- millionaires of Ontario gentleman who never did a hand's  turn for the people of that province,  and it is probable that these gentleman fully share the Vancouver World's  anxiety as to what would happen if  Hon. Joseph Martin should get close to  the British Columbia's treasury .���Toronto Telegram.  Vote for Martin and Graham,  [L. S.] THOS. R. McINNES.
