J. R. Brown, M. P. P., presided and  introduced the speaiters. Mr. Ross  the candidate; made a brief and spirited address, asking- his home town for  its generous support and showing that  the party he represented was worthy  the peoples confidence.  Hon Senator Templeman spoke for  nearly an hour, reviewing the government's administration and policy and  asking that, his old friend and his  party's life-long supporter be sent to  Ottawa to assist in carrying forward  the governments great policy of Canadian development.  A call being extended for opposition  speakeTsliFtW  of Phoenix took the platform and  made a vigorous plea in behalf of  Socialism. He characterized the conservative party as dead, and the liberal party as inimical to the interests  of the laboring man. He had no  trouble in proving to his own satisfaction and that of his friends in the  gallery that the rank and file of the  country were growing poorer yearly,  but said nothing about lowering the  interest rate on money. Any one who  had ever heard him speak on Socialism had already heard his arguments  and statistics, and he could have cut  his speech considerably without impairment if he had simply said "my  sentiments are the same as you have  heard before, and had then sat down.  Mr. W. W. B. Mclnnes found the  address of the last speaker however a  very fruitful text for a vigorous  speech of an hour's length and he  handled that speaker and his theme  very sarcastically. Those who had so  vigorously applauded Mr. Kerr aud  who persistently interrupted Mr. Mclnnes were kindly but severely dealt  with by the speaker. He spoke very  highly of Smith Curtis and his work  in the interests of labor, and claimed  that he deserved much greater credit  than the laboring classes appeared  willing to give him. The meeting  must have been a distinct gain for Mr.  Ross,  3 They have a Thirty Thousand Dollar (30,000) g  H Sale on at Eastern prices.

A brand new visitor comes to our  oflice in the form of a bright, little  sheet published at the new town of  Ephrata, Wash., and called the Record. The paper is published by  Homer S. More and will doubtless  prove of great value in the upbuilding  of the young town. Among the advertisements we notice that of our  former citizen, D. A. Holbrook.  A representative of the Times was  surprised last Saturday when he visited the Last Chance mine ou the hill  just east of town and north of Twin  creek. He was shown over the property by the manager, D. McVicar, and  it-was refreshing to hear the new manager commend the work done by his  predecessor. It is so common for a  new management to censure the old  that the words of Mr. McVicar impressed by their candor. In reply to  the question as to what he thought of  the property and the work done,: the  manager replied that it was too soon  to give a pronounced opinion about the  mine but he did not hesitate to say  that good judgment h-Bd been displayed in the past working and he only  regretted that there had not been more  done. Continuing he said: "You see  we have here a very large ledge of  quartz.- -We have continued the old  crosscut which was in 20 feet, 44 feet  firther'ahd'are hot yet to any. -walls."'  When asked if all that body of ore  carried value, he said: "Yes, it all  carries some value, and some carries  good values. In our crosscut to wards  the foot wall we have run . into two  streaks or layers of very good ore, one  about eight inches wide and the other  about fourteen inches wide."  Mr. McVicar expects to find his best  ore on the foot wall. The Last Chance  will doubtless join the list of shippers  in December, and expects to be in  position thereafter to ship regularly.  There is such an immense body of low  grade milling ore in sight the company  will doubtless investigate  the expedi-  ment of the ore that will not stand the  expense of hauling, freight and treatment but which will give the company  a nice margin if treated on the ground.  The company is now working on a  bunch of rich ore recently uncovered,  and hopes are entertained that it may  lead to a continuous body of the same  character.  Mr. McVicar said he had once worked a property very similar to the Last  Chance in which they struck frequent  pockets of rich ore, and the one now  being worked out suggested others to  follow.  When made aware that the facts being gleaned were for publication the  host became rather reticent and said  the company's policy was opposed to  anything like advertising. It was only  on the Times' man's statement that  his views of the property if published  would not be nearly so conservative as  the manager's that the latter consented to be quoted. In concluding the  interview the manager said: "I trust  that my report for the year's work will  show a balance on the right side. The  present prospects are certainly favorable and I think such a thing will  happen. Should it result as I trust 1  shall be pleased to let you have a copy  of the same."  Thanking him for his trouble the  writer withdrew strong in the conviction that a big thing was being added  to the list of big things of the Boundary.  Development work with most encouraging results is going forward on the  Strathmore under the supervision of  C. Scott Galloway. The Strathmore  adjoins the Fremont and the latter adjoins, the Providence. It is one of the  early locations of the high grade belt.  The first work done on the claim was  the sinking of a shaft on the vein. At  a depth of 65 feet a fault was encountered. A crosscut was run to the east  at that level and after being driven 60  feet the ledge was again met. A tunnel was then started 75 feet below the  collar of the shaft, about 100 feet to  the north, in order to cut underneath  the fault. This tunnel is now in 220  feet but must be driven considerabty  further yet in order to reach the vein.  Small shipments of ore have been  made at different times, the last being  two and a quarter tons of ore taken  from an open cut 150 feet, to the south  of the shaft. This small shipment returned $78.72 per ton.  "The development to this point was ���  carried on by the original owner. Being unable to carry forward the work  unaided the property was turned over  to a joint stock company and capitalized at $150,000, several outside gentlemen having associated themselves  with the owner and some local people  in the flotation of the company.  The new company has a small force  of men at work drifting on the vein to  the south, on the 40 ft. level, They  are taking out some very tine ore. It  is the intention of the management to  keep on this drift for a distance of 100  to 125 feet, and then to stope from tha.t  level, to.-. the^surface.=^=^It--.is^-espected=  that several cars of high grade ore will  be shipped therefrom. Standing in  this south drift on the 40 ft. level a  local mining engineer, a few days ago,  said: "This looks to me as true a  fissure vein as drill was ever struck in,  and I see no reason why it should not  make another Providence." We trust  it may.  Xmas Goods arriving every week.  This year's stock is a wonder.���Smith  & McRae.  MEETING  It is still good  pioneer town of  has   always   so  AT MIDWAY.  o'd Midway.

Joel 1:4���"That which the palmer-  worm hath left hath the locust eaten;  and that which the locust hath left  hath the ankerworm eaten; and that  which the ankerworm hath left hath  the caterpillar eaten."  Liberal party will maintain its reputation on Tuesday next by trolling  up a  big majority for Duncan  Ross.     This  pleasing   fact   was   evidenced   at the  meeting held in   the  interests of  the  Liberals candidate on Monday evening  last.   In addition   to  residents of the  towu including several   ladies,   there  were present a number of farmers from  the surrounding   district.      The   hall  was well filled   and   the addresses by  the candidate and J. R. Brown,   M. P.  P., were liberally  applauded.     J.  R.  Ferguson made a very  efficient  chairman.    Mr.   Ross   spoke   first   dealing  with the Grand Trunk Pacific question  and the necessity of having  a government member   at   Ottawa  to  impress  upon the government the  urgency of  having this great district opened up.  Mr. Brown gave many cogent reasons  why Yale-Cariboo should  endorse the  record   and   policy of   the   Dominion  goverineut.     J.   R.   Harrison    asked  some questions in the interests  of the  Conservative party which was answered to the satisfaction of the audience.  The   meeting   closed   with a  vote   of  thanks to the chair, the singing of the  National   Anthem   and three rousing  cheers for Mr. Ross.  *':i!  III  / BOUNDARY    CREEK   TIMES.  TO WN 1 OTICS  Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Macdoiiald of  Grand Forks are visiting with Mr. and  Mrs. Dr. Mnthisou this week.  Put your ear to the ground and hear  that low rumbling sound. That'* the  breaking away of tne Conservative  landslide in Yale-Cariboo I'or Ross.  The thing gathers momentum daily,  slowly but surely. Just watch the returns on the 22nd inst.  A PLAIN VIEW  The voters of Yale-Cariboo  have an important duty to perform on the 22nd inst. On that  day they will give voice to their  great privilege of sharing- in the  responsibilities of government.  On that day they go on record  either for or against a government which has just been overwhelmingly endorsed by the people. In the light of past history  Yale-Cariboo will in all probability remain true to the political  principles adopted since 1896,  when its allegiance to Liberalism  was asserted in unmistakable  terms. It would be folly, nay  suicidal, for the electors to reverse their verdict of former  yeais when such mighty local  issues as railway construction  and miueral development hang in  the balance. The predominating  industry in Yale-Cariboo and particularly in the Similkameen, is  mining; a thousand dollars are  invested in it where only one is  put into any other. If a hostile  and openly avowed opponent of  the Laurier administration be  sent to Ottawa as the member for  Yale-Cariboo, what could he accomplish in securing railway legislation, better terms for the province, postoffice buildings and  sites, telephone lines, aud the  opening of Indian reserves to  public uses? What. , influence  would such a man be likely to  have in the establishment of a  mint in this province and consequently gold coinage for the Dominion? How much weight  could he throw into the parliamentary scales in behalf of a  school of mines for this province?  The necessity for experimental  horse breeding stations for the  improvement of this valuable  stock has been long recognized,  and a friendly member would be  rmore"Iikely"6f~securin-^'"the"cle;r  sired end than an oppositionist.  These questions are self-explanatory and require only momentary  consideration to convince anyone  of their importance and of the  urgency for sending a man who  will not antagonize this constituency with the government at  Ottawa.���Similkameen Star.  A TREAT IN SIGHT  Those interested in the story of Canadian exploration, colonization, reforms, and growth are anticipating a  treat in a work to be shortly issued by  Geo. N. Morang & Co. The prospectus  and advance pages bespeaks the lofty  character of the work. The book will  be entitled "The Makers of Canada,"  and will deal with the subject from a  personal viewpoint largely. A series  of biographies of men who have been  prominent figures in the country's history will constitute the chief feature  of the work. The story of Champla.ni  will be representative of ihe French  regime, that of Wolfe of the conquest,  that of Simcoe of reconstruction, that  of Brock of struggle, and that of  Brown, Macdonald, Dorion and Howe  of Confederation. Each biography  will be written by some person specially fitted for the work and each in  love with his theme. The very tho-.ght  of what the flavor of the book will be  recalls the stories of earlier Canadian  life as written by the gifted Parkman.  We anticipate a large demant for this  a book that will read like a romance  although dealing with what is in  essence an historical subject. The  coloring of early Canadian life and  may be made exceedingly rich by ritfht  hands and  we have no doubt the book  will be so written ns to charm, even  while it. will deepen the sense of patriotism.  SCRAPS  There are 119 polling places in Yale-  Cariboo. The "Great Inland Empire"  as applied to this district would have  much greater moaning than as applied  to that section of Washington known  by that tin mo.  Tlie indications are that Mr. Ayles-  worih will not now enter the Dominion  Cabinet. He claims to be out of  politics.  The Liberals of Victoria have decided to banquet Senator Templeman on  his return to that city.  GREETING!

He was glad  to know that the Lady of the Snows  idea was fast disappearing. It was  not wonderful that Laurier had said  that the nineteenth century belongs to  the United States, but the twentieth  belongs to Canada.  A big convention of liberals of the  province of Ontario will be held in  Toronto in a few days. This has been  called with a view to feeling the pulse  of the people and determining the  policy on which premier Ross will  appeal to the country. Dissolution was  to have taken place on Tuesday, but it-  was announced yesterday that an  agreement as to policy and reconstruction had not been arrived at, and consequently the advice of the rank and  file of the party becomes necessary.  Late cable advices point out that  move than 100,000 emigrants left Great  Britain for Canada during the season  just closed. Large numbers of emigrants are still en route to the West,  although the Canadian immigration-  officials endeavor to discourage, as  much as possible, the incoming of  settlers to Canada at this season ofthe  year. The greater number of new  arrivals are going to farmers in Ontario for the winter months, and multitudes are finding ready employment  with the Ottawa valley and Geoigian  Bay lumber interests in the winter's  logging operations. Up to June 30  last, 130,330 immigrants arrived in  Canada. Of this number 50,374 were  from the British Isles, 34,785 came  from European points, and 45,171 came  from the United States. Since June  30 the number of immigrants arriving  at Canadian ocean points alone has  averaged nearly 9000 per month.    :  If the statement of those in charge  of the construction of the Great Northern branch from Grand Porks to  Phoenix are realized, that road will  have its rails laid into Phoenix on or  before Christmas day. This is what  both Chief Engineer Kennedy and  Patrick Welch, iu charge of construction, stated, both of tnem being in  Phoenix. The railroad is now at a  point some seven or eight miles this  side of Grand Forks, and in less than  a week should be at Summit City. In  two weeks the steel should be down as  far as Deadman's gulch, only six miles  from Phoenix by the grade and two  miles distant across country.  R. Swift came down from Vernon on  Monday to get the construction gang  started to work on the Kelowna end of  the telegraph line. The first stake was  driven-iu-Kelowna-^-Wednesday-mor n-  ing. Several miles of the posts have  already been set on the Vernon end.  The line, instead of running along  Okanagan lake as formerly stated, will  follow the wagon road by Long Lake,  as it can be more easily repaired by  following that. route. A telephone  wire may also be stretched on the same  posts if the amount of the appropriation is sufficient to cover the cost.  According to L. E. Camfel, Secretary of the Quebec Colonization Society, there has been considerable  settlement in the northern and northeastern portions of the province since  last January. "During the season,"  Mr. Carufel said, "there has been an  increase of over 150 per cent, in the  number of colonists that have been  placed in lands in the district north of  Montreal, the Metapedia and the Lake  St. John districts. There has also been  a big improvement in the class of  colonists that have been taking up the  lands. A large percentage of French-  Canadians have returned from the  New England States. More than two  thousand settlers all told have arrived  since the beginning of the year. In  addition to those placed in this part of  the country quite a number of French-  Canadians went to the Canadian west.  Most of them settled in the French  parishes of Manitoba."

The Times Job Printing  Department  Is The Leader  For Neat, Clean and attractive Printing  A LAST WORD.  The election contest iu  Yale-1  i      _ i  Cariboo is practically over. Before our next issue the people  will have had their sav. For  months the different candidates  have been expressing their views  to the people and now it only remains for the people to exercise  their right and duty at the polls.  For'the editor of this paper, who  is the liberal nominee, the meeting with the electors in every  part of the riding has been a  great pleasure. He has. become  impressed as never before with  the resources of Yale-Cariboo  and with its magnificent future.  He has realized the grave responsibility of representing" so great a  constituency in parliament. This  responsibility would appear all  the more arduous we're he not  assured of the advice and assistance of so many of the brightest  minds of the riding and of the  hearty cooperation of so many  helpful, influential men. already  in parliament. He has found it a  pleasure to conduct the campaign  against such gentlemanly opponents as Messrs. Burrell and  Mills, men whose words though  ' valorous for* their* own cause,  have no bitter stings behind. The  liberal candidate feels sure of his  election. He regrets that the  enormous area of the riding made  it impossible to have the election  on .the same day as the smaller  constituencies, because the fruits  of victory would have seemed  that much sweeter. He asks the  continued good work of his  friends until the last vote is  registered, pledging them his  best efforts for the advancement  of the entire district. With' a  solid British Columbia contingent  in parliament,-* our' legitimate  claims on the government cannot  be long: denied.  other than liberal on the 22nd  inst. For the man desiring to be  on the side of progress and prosperity, to become identified with  the great progressive party of the  past and at least of the immediate  future, the present offers a splendid opportunity for ruakiug a  happy choice. We would not desire to change the vote of an}'  man, who in his conscience believes the conservative party  right in principle and policy and  the liberal party wrong just because the latter party may do him  greater material present good,  but we ask every voter of the  district to weigh well the question as to how he shall vote,  looking at it in the white lig-ht of  party record.  We ask none to violate conscience in the coming contest  merely for the sake of flattering  Mr. Ross with an overwhelming  majority, but we ask that such  an analysis of the situation be  made by every voter, that he may  cast his ballot for his own  greatest and best good. Forget  who are the candidates, forget  who are your associates, consider  where 'your interests and those  of the district lie and we will  have no doubt of the issue.  THE NEW VOTER.  In our last issue we told you of  the success of the great liberal  party in Canada, which meant  continued prosperity in Canada  aud an era of development for  British Columbia; in our next  we will tel! you of the splendid  support Yale-Cariboo gave that  party on the 22nd.  Let us'keep strings on our candidate by giving him a rousing  home majority. Should we fail  to do this he must inevitably feel  the constraint the west and north  will put upon him, for there  alone he will get majority enough  to elect him.  Study the broad comprehensive railway policy of the liberal  party, pause and think what it  means for British Columbia, in  the multiplication. cf opportunities, ?rea, wealth and people, and  then give that policy and that  party a boost at the. polls.  Whence comes lead bounties,  postal facilities, railway bonuses?  From the Dominion government.  Does Yale-Cariboo need the ear  of the government in power?  Give it your confidence and get  its iu return.  To   The Electors of  Yale-Cariboo  WHAT SHALL IT PROFIT ?  What shall it profit a man to  cut his hay with a scythe,'" "because his father did," when he  could use a mowing machine  with manifest advantage?  What shall it profit a man to  plant potatoes on soil unfitted for  them when he could raise some  other crop to advantage, "just  because he has always planted  potatoes on that piece of ground?"  What shall it profit a man to  vote conservative because his  father did when there is a much  better way?  What shall it. profit a man to  continue to vote conservative, for  no known reason other than because he aiway has, when  he can identify himself,, with  a party to his own and his  country's advantage? .  , If the liberal party were grossly incompetent, notoriously corrupt, if its policy were inefficient, aud if opposed to it the  conservative party were superior  in policy and adminstration there  would be excuse for the man of  tory proclivities and tory associations for principle's sake to  stand with his party and cause,  and go down to defeat rather  than to change party just for the  sake of being on the winning  side. Such a man deserves the  commendation of all good thinking men. But for the man without political entanglements it  would appear the waste of a  valuable   opportunity    to    vote  To the man about to cast his  first ballot for a candidate to the  Dominion House of Commons ou  Tuesday next we desire to say a  word. The present is a momentous one with you. You  want to get started right in your  political associations and so ponder well your first exercise of the  franchise. It is going to give a  lot of the old tc-ry party supporters a great wrench of feelings to  breax away from the party lines,  but they are going to do it, convinced that their best good will  thereby result. To save yourself  the pain of change later on, get  offTigHtliow7 new voter. The  liberal party comes to you, her  brow crowned with the laurels of  achievement, her hands filled  with peace and prosperity, her  heart desirous for the country's  welfare, her brain clear for administration and asks you to confide in her at this your first  opportunity. She asks it for her  sake aud for yours, for her's because you can do her good, for  yours because she can do you  good. The thing is mutual. The  favors are reciprocal. New voter  get off right. Don't handicap  yourself now.  What an unanswerable argument we will have., with an unbroken contingent favorable to  the party in power, when we ask  the  within our rights.  government  for  anything  Read the story of liberal administration as written in internal  development and trade expansion,  and then as you feel the thrill of  pride that this is your country  make this your party.  Talk this matter of self-interest over with your friend. Don't  antagonize his friendship if he is  a tory, but get terribly in earnest  over the present issue.  As the Liberal candidate in this  electoral district, I respectfully solicit  your votes and influence.  No attempt will be made to discuss  the general issues of the campaig-n in  this address. Since receiving- the Liberal nomination in January last, I  have visited many parts of the riding  aiid made myself thoroughly acquainted with its requirements. This work  will be continued until election day  but owing to the large extent of territory to be covered it is a physical impossibility to visit all sections or personally interview all the electors. I  therefore avail myself of this opportunity to ask for your suffrage.  Permit me to direct your attention to  some matters of local importance.  Yale-Cariboo fully warrants.theexpen  diture of public money in its development. The government has already  done much in this direction. It has  granted aid to several lines of railway;  government owned telegraph and telephone lines have been constructed; the  necessary monev has been voted to  secure telephonic communication  through the rich Nicola and Similkameen districts, and telegraphic communication between Vernon and Kel-  ��owna. In order that the practically  inexhaustible mineral, timber and  agricultural resources of the district  may be fully developed, this policy of  governmental aid must be continued.  It is important that Yale-CariboJ shall  return  as its  member one  who   can  direct the attention of the governmen  to matters of vital importance to the  district and who will support the government in its aggressive policy of development. It is particularly important that the electors of this riding  should show their appreciation of the  government's broad, statesmanlike  plan of constructing anothet transcontinental railway which will be the  chief factor in opening up the northern  portion of the riding. Branch lines to  connect with the southern transcontinental lines will surely follow and the  whole interior of the province will be  opened up.  Briefly, my policy, so far as Yale-  Cariboo is concerned, is a policy of development of all its important sections.  With a leader whose record fills with  pride all people of this country, irrespective of party affiliations; supporting  a government whose eight years of  wise, progressive administration has  placed Canada in a proud position  among the nations of the world, and  at the same time has more closely con J  nected the ties which bind us to the  mother country, and fully endorsing- a  policy which means so much to the  western portion'of the Dominion, and  more particularly to * the District of  Yale-Cariboo, I await with confidence,  your verdict, ���  Yours very sincerely,."'*.

It is probable that the Sally at  Beaverdell will be worked on quite an  extensive scale this coming winter.  The new vein on the Providence is  growing into a wonder. The lead has  Deen exposed for 400 feet at least. Il  extends up the hill, passing the old  working to the east. The vein in one  place reached the enormous width of  at least seven feet. From the present  line of survey the lead undoubtedly  runs into the Dimond fraction recently acquired by the company.  Its a new era of mining for the  Boundary*, this digging money out of  the ground from the grass roots sufficient to meet the payroll, but that is  what is happening in a dozen high  grade properties around Greenwood  today. Immense capital was necessary  to put the Granby and B. C. Copper  Co. and Montreal and Boston in their  present paying position, but nerve and  faith and good management are capital sufficient for the little ones.  CURRENCY.  While the Boundary has been luxuriating in the finest kind of weather,  snow storms and.blizzards have been  ravaging New York, Pennsylvania  and the East.  Although the Socialist vote decreas  ed in British Columbia this, year, it  ha= made an enormous gain in the  United States. The Socialist candidate for president, Eugene V. Debs,  polled 500,000 votes on Nov, 8th.  The Supreme Court in a recent decision held that a placer claim cotild be  located over a lode claim. It was in  the case of Tanghe vs. Morgan of  Poplar Creek.  W. A.

The Siberian railway is to be  double-tracked and for that purpose  $5,000,000 have been appropriated towards'the project. This looks as if  Russia was: getting ready for more  vigorous prosecution of the war  The report that Kuroki had been  killed on Oct. 14th last at the battle of  Liaoyang is ridiculed at Tokio. The  Japs think he will be very much in  evidence at what appears an approaching battle.  - The recent Japanese loan  placed in  London was subscribed ten times over.  Governor Peabody failed of election  in Colorado although the Republican  ticket otherwise carried the state. The  governor's record in Colorado during  the recent labor troubles would from  this distance appear to have merited  even worse punishment.  It does not look as if early peace was  likely to ensue between Japan and  Russia although Japan appears willing  to discuss it and several of the world's  great nations would delight in bringing it about.  Stoessel recently asked the Japs at  Port Arthur for an armistice presumably to bury the dead.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

St. Petersburg, November 16.���  Dispatches from general Stoessel, commander of the Russian military forces  at Port Arthui, and rear-admiral  Wiren, in command of the Port Arthur  squadron, brought by the Russian torpedo boat destroyer Rastoropny to  Chefoo, have reached the emporer, but  have not yet been made public. The  great importrnce of the information is  apparent from the fact that the torpedo  destroyer was deliberately sacrified in  order to get the communication^ from  the beleaguered garrison. The only  word which has reached the admiralty  is a telegram from the captain of* the  Rastoropny announcing his arrival  with official dispatches. The commander of the Rastoropny, in an interview  of his adventurous voyage, said: "We  left Port Arthur at midnight in a  blinding snowstorm. The boat was  navigated through all the dangers of  floating mines without a mishap. On  reaching the open sea, we saw a Japanese cruiser and some torpedo boats  in the distance, but we were steaming  rapidly through the storm with lights  extinguished and passed them unnoticed. We reached Chefoo without any  mishap of any kind."  Chefoo, Nov. 16.���The Russians  have blown up the torpedoboat destroyer Rastoropny. The destroyer was  of 2400 tons displacement, was 200 feet  long, and had a speed of 26 knots. Her  armament consisted of one 12 pounder,  and three 3-pounders, and she had two  torpedo tubes. She was launched in  1901. "  Chefoo, Nov. 16, 7 p. m.���The Russians with the exception of one man  left the destroyer during the afternoon.  This" man lit the fuse and blew up the  vessel. There were three dull explosions, which were barely discernable a  hundred yards from the place where  they occcurred. Almost simultaneously  the Rastoropny sank. A single spar  marks her grave.  RETURNING OFFICER IN TOWN.  Daniel O'Hara, returning officer for  Yale-Cariboo, arrived in the city on  Monday last to make all necessary  arrangements for the election on Tuesday next. Since receiving his appointment Mr. O'Hara has been kept very  busy arranging the details of an election in such an enormous constituency.  Notwithstanding the fact that three  weeks intervene between nomination  day and election he finds that it will  take him all the time to distribute  ballots and ballot boxes before Tuesday next. It would have been simply  impossible to do this in two week's  time between nomination day and  polling which is allowed in the general  election. This was attempted in 1896  with the result that no poll was held in  Chilcotin and other parts of the riding  and many electors were therefore disfranchised.  NO DOUBT WHATEVER NOW.  Hon. Richard McBride, premier, and  Hon. R. F.Green, Chief Commissioner  of Lands and Works, came from Victoria to the interior this week. They,  are going to taki: part in the campaign  in the Yale-Cariboo and Kootenay constituencies, in wViich the election will-  be held next week. Watch for a great  big Ross majority wherever these  gentlemen appear.  For a town lot at the boUom price.  See Rai-ph Smailes, Agent Greenwood Townsite Co.  UNTIDY-  J. F. Goldsmith was givpn an opportunity in the superior court today to  recite his wrongs for the purpose of  securing a divorce from his wife, Ada  Li. Goldsmith. He related how Ada  had heaped upon personal indignities  that she acted cruelly towards him on  many occasions. That she had a violent temper, quarreled and abused him  until Lis only comfort left was to  secure a release from the marital bonds  He also related how she refused to keep  the home tidy, her personal appearance  was neglected and she went to places  of amusement with bad men. All  thesewere as nothing compared to her  duty to her children, aged 5 years and  3 years, a boy and a girl. She forgot  the sacred trust of motherhood invested with her, she put aside the duties so  becoming to a mother for worldly  pleasures. The husband asked for the  custody of the children and it was  given him.���Nelson Tribune.  NOTICE  Application For Transfer Liauor  License.  Notice is hereby given that thirty  days after date.

We fail to find any Union label on  the Socialist posters and bills about  town Surely this must be a mere  oversight.  Colin McDougall who has been in  the employ of the B. C.

Mr. Strickland, for a long lime popular teller in the Bank of Montreal  here, and at present manager for that  bank at New Denver is in the city  accompanied by Mrs. Strickland.  A. L.

The Law, Union and Crown and the  Pacific Coast Insurance companies  have decided to extend their business  to Greenwood and have appointed  Gaunce & Wickwire as agents.  At Presbyterian church on   Sabbath  J. S. Deschamps of Rossland is a  visitor in Greenwood this week.  The Hard Times social in the Auditorium on Monday evening was a  pleasant affair although not very well  attended. The gentlemen present were  fined for every conceivable thing save  and except having suspenders fastened  on with a shingle nail.  Two stores adjoining on Copper st.  with a connecting passage, making a  50 foot frontage, and filled well back  with staple goods is A. L. White &  Co.'s latest achievement. A lull line  of up-to-date new furniture greets the  eye of him who gazes into the old  Piccadilly restaurant.  The Thanksgiving dance given by  the Oddfellows at the Masonic hall  building Thursday evening last was a  pronounced succesa. A large number  was present. The ladies of St. Jude's  church had charge of the refreshments  in the upper hall, a sufficient proof in  itself that everything in that line was  the nicest.  Thos. T. Langlois, president and  manager of the B. C. Permanent L.  and S. Co., was in town this week  visiting the company's local agents,  Messrs. Gaunce & Wickwire. He was  much pleased with the status of the  company's securities here and instructed the agents that they might entertain further proposals for home building loans.

Mr. Brown gave an . able review of  the past record of the Dominion government and showed that their big  majority ofNov. 3rd was well earned  and thoroughly deserved.        .,  Opposition speakers were then invited but were conspicuous by thpir  absence. ��� ���'   .. -.;:.'*".  Mr. Deane then opened his-address  with a hearty tribute.to'the ability and  integrity of Mr. Duncan Ross whom  he has known personally for the last  twelve years. He reviewed the tariff  and the Grand Trunk Pacific contract-  to show that the government had well  served the interests of the people and  had a degree of control over*the railways never before approached on the  continent. His remarks were frequently- interrupted with hearty applause.  After some of the local men had  expressed their.' views a hearty vote-of  thanks was passed for the tspeakers  and the meeting closed with three  cheers for Sir Wilfrid Lv.urier and Mr.  Duncan Ross, the Liberal candidate.

It is intimated  that the' Canadian  Pacific is negotiating for.the purchase  of a controlling interest in the Boston  & Ma'ne railroad. This company  makes a direct connection with the  lines controlled by the New Haven  road in New England, and as the  Pennsylvania roailroad interest ^ is  understood to have a large voice in  New Haven railroad affair, it is believed that the conference between t\*fo  officials has to do with the purchase of  the Boston & Maine. Friends, of the.  Canadian Pacific say that the acquis!-'  tion of this property would be ardecid-'  ed advantage to the Canadian  Pacific.  cordially invited.

Mr. E.  Mills had not returned as expected and  the electric lights failed about the time  for opening the meeting and so the  meeting was off.
