I  The Discovery is Near the Southwest  Corner of the Claim-  The Providence continues to be the  banner claim.of the district. The property never looked so well as at present and the new management ought  to mane this a record year. They not  only took charge of the property in  excellent shape in the old workings,  but they are uncovering what promises  to be a valuable new vein. The new  lead is well down on Providence creek,  near the southwest corner of the claim  and near the Coronation. The lead  has been stripped about 300 feet and  shows rich and strong the entire distance. The vein is from 10 to 12  inches wide and assays made yielded  $10 in gold and $95 in silver. The ore  favors that of the Elkhorn in appearance showing much native silver.  This  new  strike confirms Mr. H. V.

The Premier has agreed not to  oppose the return of Hon. R. S. Borden in any constituency that may be  opened for him, if the conservatives  will not oppose Mr. Aylesworth.  ation claim just south and on Wed*  hesday he pu. men to work to discover if the lead does not _un into his  property.  At the old workings of the Provid ���  enee a contract has been let to sink a  shaft to the next level. The stockholders of the Providence are congratulating themselves on the property's present outlook, and well they  may. The dividend paying properties of the Providence were never so  assured as now.  Failing the return of Mr. Borden,  the leadership of the Conservatives is  likely to fall to Mr. Foster.  | Hardware I  ^uaauaauaaattaattattMaaiaauaauaauauuaauak!  ���Every-province-oMhe-'Domit-iott'-but  Prince Edward Island and Ontario  gave the liberals a majority.

Laurier, Prefontaii.e and Oliver had  the banner majorities, over* 2000 in  each.  Liberal gains were made in Ontario.  MR. ROSS IN THE WEST.  . Mr. Ross is still the prime favorite  in this locality, and if he does half as  well in tlie other parts of the riding he  will have such a majority as will make  the Conservative candidate wonder  why he left Grand Forks to monkey  with the wiue naughty world. Every  day brings new supporters to Liberal  cause here, and it is quite safe to say  that in the outlying polling stations  from Armstrong Mr. Burrill will not  get a dozen votes. The only thing  liable to hurt the Grits is being too  sure.���Armstrong Cor.  There is a great deal of activity in  and around Phoenix at present. The  Great"Ndrtherh"Railway"has:"re_hbved  the Union and Miner's Exchange  Hotels out into the street and is driving piles for the crossing to the grade  on the south hillside.  Grading on the main line, spurs,  and sidings is being rushed.  The Great Northern Railway improvements have cut(.up the town very  considerably but its entrance into the  town means more than long streets  would. The bunkes up on the hill on  the branch to the Granby's upper  levels are being rushed to completion.  At the mouth of the lower tunnel some  extensive crib-work is being put in,  and large ore bunkers will be erected  where the goal now stands. Taken all  in all we have never seen Phoenix  losking as busy and as well as at ore-  sent, The Granby is running its full  complement' of men, and the Montreal & Boston are employing about  sixty, with prospects of early large  increase. Phoenix stands to hold its  position as the premier mining camp  in British Columbia, undisputed, for a  long time.  A largely attended meeting was held  at Oro Denoro on Tuesday night in  the interests of the candidature of  Duncan Ross. Over 100 electors were  bresent and they listened attentively  to the powerful speech made by Smith  Curtis. They also g.-.ve Mr., Ross a  very cordial reception and showed  their appreciation of the brief but  pointed speech of F. J Deane of Nelson. :  Mayor Naden presided. Mr. Curtis  spoke at length dealing: effectively  with the Grand Trunk Pacific and  conservative objections to the scheme.  He dealt with labor problems and  demonstrated to the satisfaction of the  audience that Liberals always had  been and are now the champions of the  masses. He closed the magnificent  two hour speech b^7 appealing to. elec- .  tors to support Mr. Ross the government candidate.  Mr, Ross spoke briefly. He asked  the people in the south to join with  those in the north who on election day  would give him an overwhelming majority. The election was won, it, was  only a question of majority and he  wanted to go down to Ottawa with the  good votes and good wisnes of.his  home district as well as those of the  northern part of the riding.  Mr. Deane spoke as an elector of  Kamloops. He said that Mr. Ross  was nominated because the north  realized the growing importance of  the Boundary district and were prepared to give it recognition if a suit-  Able_man_fr-om_the_-.south-^were=-a. valuable. In Mr. Ross they found such a  man. He would make a capable representative and an aggressive champion  of the west. Mr. Ross would get a  large majority In the northern part of  the riding and he felt sure the south  would give an even greater majority.  The meeting closed with three hearty  cheers for Laurier and Ross.  Tell your friends to stop at the  Pioneer hotel, Greenwood. They will  all be satisfied.

GRAND LIBERAL RALLIES.  The liberals will have a grand field  night at the Auditorium, Greenwood,  this (Friday) evening. The chair will  be taken at 8 o'clock. The speakers of  the evening will be Hon. Senator Templeman. W. W. B. Mclnnisand Duncan  Ross, the liberal candidate.  On Monday evening next in the  Miners' Union Hall, Phoenix, Hon.  Senator Templeman and W. W. B.  Mclnnes, M.P.P., will address the  electors in the interests of Duncan  Ross. Opposition speakers are invited  o attend both meetings.  THE MORRISON.  "What has become of our Morrison  stock?" This is the inquiry sundry  owners of that stock are asking these  days. Many moons ago the Morrison  management reported the sale of that  property to the Montreal and Boston  Consolidated and offered to pay cash  for the stocks at two cents per share,  or to convert it into Consolidated stock  at one for thirty.  Many sent in their stock for cash  to  the company at Spokane.     Some  got  the money and some did not, the stock  being returned.     Many others sent in  their shares for exchange.     Thus  far  they have the receipt  from  the Morrison   people   for   the  stocks,  but they  have not received cither the  Montreal  and  Boston's stock or even a receipt  from that company for the same.     Is  the Morrison sold to the new company?  If so why not produce the certificates?  Is it not sold?     If not why not return  the former   certificates?     They   may  not be very valuable but they  are better collateral   than the receipt of any  officer connected   with   the   Morrison  company. Is anybody monkeying over  this business?   If so, who?   The Montreal and Boston owes it  to itself and  the public to either confirm the saje or  to repudiate the reported   sale.     Who  will speak first? BOUNDARY    CREEK   TIMES.  CORRUPT RUSSIA.  Gen Kouropatkill's boast of last  spring that he would drive the Japanese into the sea by the fall was answered.by his crushing defeat at Liao-  Yang. His recent announcement tliat  Russia was not strong enough to assume the offensive has been followed  by his army putting its head into the  Japanese dragon's mouth with the resultant loss of about one-fourth of his  troops. Now conies the report of the  Baltic fleet's blunderings in the North  Sea. The world stands astonished at  Russia's blunders. What, is their  cause? Some Russian writers have  given us an answer by explaining the  widespread corruption prevailing in  their country, corruption that hasgain-  ��� ed ground until it has invited national  disaster.  In no countries, however, has corruption and demoralization permeated  so deeply .as in Russia and Turkey.The  fatalism of those peoples perhaps enables them to tolerate abuses more  readily than others, so that the evils  grow there to a greater head. In Russia, from the Grand Dukes of the Imperial.family downward the embez:  zlement of public funds and the receipt of bribes is almost univeral. In  the days uf the Bulgarian war a million roubles is said to have been paid  to the mistress of the Grand Duke  Nicholas," commander-in-chief of the  army, by a contracting firm. Today  great ministers of state have to retain on their side the actress mistress  of the Grand Duke Alexis���the prince  who visited this country over thirty  years ago. .  ���-.,-.���      .**���'*���  Stepniak (Michael Dragomanov) has  given us wherever possible the documents'in the case���reports of state  trials arid other facts. He tells us  that each war only repeats the former  in the way of corruption. As he wrote  . some years ago, and therefore before  the present war began, it will be well  to compare his accounts and forecasts with what is how transpiring.  Stepniak tells us how many army officers have been deported to Siberia for  holding liberal opinions. Many of  these men were among the most brainy  and conscleutious of the Russian officers. The government is too apprehensive of their making short work of  the dynasty if they held high position  to call such men to the front. Less  efficient men, more suited to serve as  tools of the autocracy, are selected.  Liberal generals might put a reforming czar on the throne, and grant a  constitution. High intelligence and  conscientiousness _ naturally sympathize with reform and liberal aspirations.  The writers tells us how during the  Crimean war frauds so : outrageous  were revealed as to be afterward cited  as something portentious aud abnormal. But they were repeated in the  _Rus.so-Tur^sh...wa.r.^..^^most^the_s.olei  food.of the Russian soldier is black  bread biscuits. An examination by a  commission composed of professors of  Kieff university, of this commodity as  supplied by Prince Uroosoff and M.  Perivosh.ikoff, showed it to contain 13  per cent, of sand, clay, straw and other  inutritious ingredients.. It was made  up with impure water, consisting of a  red brown liquid more like cocoa and  milk, swarming with living organisms  From motives of economy the ovens  were not kept at a temperature exceeding 160 degrees Fahrenheit*,whereas to destroy the organisms a heat of  250 degrees was needed. As a result  the biscuits became the breeding  ground oi every sort of baiteria, those  creatures spreading over them and  forming "a green and brown velvet-  lik covering." The mortality and disease in the army from such poisonous  food was in consequence great. Similarly the preserved meats of the contractors, Messrs. Kohan and Gorvitz,  were so putrid that they had to be  buried to avoid an epidemic.  *   -j*   *  dents were, nevertheless., forbidden to :  send anything but favorable accounts.  The writer tells that he saw five sticks  supposed to  contain   quinine   opened  and fuuiid to hold common   table  sail.  ��� More serious still .are the   recent   revelations in the letters of tlie  Russian  General  Count  Keller  (killed   at   the  battle of Ta-Wiin) to his wife: "Whole  regiments,"  he  says,   *'werc   without  uniforms or  proper clothes.     Others  had no boots.    The deficiency  in fani-  tary   arrangements  were  appalling."  Ho  expressed   himself   strongly   concerning the capacity of his colleagues,  and has a poor opinion of Gen. Kourc-  pa*kin.    It is  not  surprising   to  bear  that  Countess   Keller   has   been persuaded   to postpone the publication of  her husband's memoirs  until after the  war.   Everybody knows of the quarrel  between Kouropatkin and Alexieff, and  how they try to thwart each other.    It  would seem that  this  contentiousness  is widespread, for the officer says:   "It  is a.shame to  see.   officers   constantly  quarrelling, dividing into cliques, and  fighting for their own   interests,   until  Japan, the common enemy is forgotten  Every one, from Kouropatkin to insignificant subalterns, is quarrelling and  unwilling to obey orders.     Our  brave  soldiers go into battle like sheep to the  shamble.       No   one   can   deny   their  loyalty,   but   until they   are properly  officered their loyalty is wasted "  MINERAL ACT  1896.  Certificate of improvements  NOTICE.

In the role ot government auctioneer  he offered for sale a large number of  crown-granted mineral claims, on  which the limit had been reached in  delinquent taxes. Little or no interest  was manifested in the sale, and most  of the properties offered met with no  response. A few were bought by interested parties. There were, however,  some notable exceptions. A large  number of claims were redeemed at  the aleventh hour.  That the Laurier goverment's railway commission is of decided advantage has again been proved to the  satisfaction of the coast district of  British Columbia. It has issued an  order that the Canadian Pacific and all  other companies must desist from  charging a higher, rate upon cedar than  is charged upon pine, fir, spruce and  other lumber. When the commission  sat in Vancouver recently "one of thei  longest and strongest arguments made  before it was in behalf of the lumber  millmen of the Pacific ��� coast. Mr.'  Miller, manager of the transportation  department of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, presented the complaint of the coast lumbermen in  reference to a discrimination in rates  imposed upon cedar lumber and  shingles from. Vancouver and other  coast points to Manitoba. The rates  charged by the C. P. R from the Pacific coast to Winnipeg and points common thereto, are: cedar lumber (also  shingles), SO cents per 100 lbs.; fir,  spruce and other lumber, 40 cents per  100 lbs. This discrimination against  .cedar jrf.J.p.xeMs^pej-Li^  apply from the Canadian lumber mills  in the mountains, from >vhich to Winnipeg and common points the rate for  lumber of all kinds is 33 cents per 100  lbs. Shingles from the mountain  mills are charged 5 cents per 100 lbs.  higher than lumber. The east-bound  rates *o St. Paul and Winnipeg and  common points are, by agreement  among the railways, usually the same.  The rates charges by the Northern  Pacific and Great Northern from  United States Pacific coast points to  St. Paul, and points common thereto,  are 50 cents and 40 cents, the same as  those charged by the C. P. R. to Winnipeg. It is, therefore, probable that  as "the C. P. R. has been ordered to  change its rates the American lines  will follow suit.  TENDERS WANTED.

YALE-CARIBOO.  Yale-Cariboo would have returned a Liberal had the election  in this riding taken place on the  same day the general election.  Possibly no other district in the  Dominion has so much to expect  from the splendid policy of railway construction and development inaugurated by the Laurier  government. The electors appreciated this and were prepared to  endorse the government at the  polls. The general election was  such a decisive endorsation of the  Liberal policy that in Yale-Cariboo it is now simply a question of  majority.  The Conservative  party have  only one  argument  left.     They  are  pointing to the fact that Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's majority is now  too large  already  and that it is  the duty of the electors of this  riding to   reduce   the   majority.  This argument might be effective  in  a   constituency   in   the   east  which has been developed to the  fullest extent and where the government can contribute  little  to  its prosperity   excepting   in the  application of a   sound general  policy.      In  Yale-Cariboo  much  depends upon the good   will and  good wishes of the  government.  The construction of railways, of  telegraph and telephone lines, of  public buildings in  the growing:  towns; the opening  of new post  offices and  custom offices where  required,   the   clearing   of    our  streams to assist the great lumber industry, the encouragement  of settlement on Dominion lands,  the   effective   administration   of  Indian   reserves���all   these   and  many other   matters  are. dependent on the assistance of the Dominion government.     Under our  system   of    party     government  which has possibly been developed ��� to   an   extreme   extent, if  a  member can do effective work, for  his constituency   he   must have  " the" ear "of" the" governmentr^It ]  would be suicidal,  then,   for  the  electors of this riding  to return  a member opposed to the government.    There is not the slightest  possible chance  of  this happening but every elector who has the  best interests of  this  great district at heart should poll a vote  for   the   government    candidate  and thus show Sir Wilfrid Laurier   that   the   splendid   railway  policy of his government is appreciated by the solid west.  The electors of the Boundary  have a special reason for supporting the government candidate.  The Liberals of Yale-Cariboo in  convention assembled paid a tribute to the growing import?nee  of this great mining district by  selecting a Boundary man as  their candidate. Cariboo, Lil-  looet, Kamloops, Yale and Okanagan will roll up big Liberal  majorities on the twenty-second.  Surely the home district of the  candidate of the dominant party  will not fall behind in showing  their endorsation of the best government Canada ever had and in  ���j to the splendid service rendered  by W. A. Galliher during the  four years he sat iu the Dominion  parliament.  THE VOICE OF REASON;  GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC.  To  The Electors of  Yak-Cariboo  What is the reasonable thing  for the people of the Boundary to  do in the election now approaching? What is it the district's interest to do? Here is a section  with greater possibilities of development perhaps than any  other in the province. Railways  are needed in this development.  Here is a long stretch of country  being fast developed in spite of  many difficulties and whose development will be most marked  once it is provided with railways  and public improvements so  essential to its growth. Without  doubt the Dominion government  will assist every legitimate enterprise that has right to lay claim  to its bounty regardless of who  shall represent it in parliament,  as it is a fair government and one  most zealous for the country's  welfare, but it cannot be disputed  that it will be much less difficult  to get our demands promptly before that government if we have  a representative favorable to the  party in power than otherwise.  Regardless of the qualifications  of the candidate now before the  electors of Yale-Cariboc, it certainly would be wiser for the district to return a Liberal candidate and that with a majority  that would emphasize his standing at Ottaiva. y      '  Concede that Mr. Burrell is an  estimable gentleman. Concede  that he is ready on the platform  and good in debate. Concede  that he would make a very desirable representative under favorable conditions. Concede all this  and yet what would the district  expect to gain by his election?  It will not be pretended that his  abilities-are-su'ch-^as-to make-him  a bright particular star in the  opposition firmament and even if  so what could he do for the district. A vote for him may be a  graceful thing, a complimentary  The construction of the Grand  Trunk. Pacific means much to  British Columbia. It means  directly the expenditure of millions of money, all distributed in  a way to do the country -/ast  good. The money will go into  the channels of trade. It will be  paid out for labor, for supplies,  for material, swelling each pay  day the amount of money current  in the country. The farmer will  have a market at. home for his  produce, the laborer a market for  his skill. Money spent in 'this  kind of public works gets into  general circulation. The merchant, the hotelkeeper, the farmer, the millman, the laborer,  each shares in its distribution.  But there will be another benefit to British Columbia in the  building of this great transcontinental highway the full measure of which can only be conjectured. It will bring into the  province a large number of people  many of whom attracted by railway building will become acquainted with the country's magnificent resources and will launch  into other enterprises.  It will open up a vast stretch  of country suitable for farming,  cattle raising, lumbering and  mining, all largely valueless  until opened up by means 'of  transportation. Without the  Canadian Pacific British Columbia so far as its interior is concerned would today be largely;a  wilderness, rich in opportunity  but of little value. Another railway will duplicate the work done  by the Canadian Pacific, bringing in people and multiplying the  countrycS wealth.  The grand endorsement of the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway  given by the people of Canada at  the polls indicates for northern  British Columbia,  "The first low wave upon the shore,  -Whereto  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 campaign tn  this address. Since receiving- the Liberal nomination in January last, I  have visited many parts of the riding*  and 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 the expenditure 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 money 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.  i portant lhat Yale-Caribou 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 another 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 s has  placed Canada in a proud position  among the nations of the world, and  at the same time has more closely connected 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 withCconfidence,  your verdict, ���...''  Yours very sincerely,  - Duncan'Ross.  Greenwood, Oct. 6th, 1904;  ���.  A LITTLE ADVICE.  Cariboo that it be unmistakably in  line with the rest of the province  and with the Dominion. A good  majority is now assured for the  liberal candidate. But this is a  time of sweeping victories and  the greater majority you give the  liberal nominee the greater his  influence at Ottawa.

CHURCH CORNER.  Rev. W. A. Robins said farewell to  his friends at St. Jttde's Hallon Tuesday evening'last^and'on '"Wednesday  started on an extended tour of the far  east, before settling down to his ministerial duties in a prominent English  parish. He has been in Greenwood  for five j'ears during which time he  has been instrumental in erecting a  neat church building and in building  up a flourish''ng church society. He  was the recipient at the farewell meeting of an address by his parishioners  and of a testimonial in the shape of a  well-filled purse.  The services in St. Jtide's were taken  on Sunday last by the Rev. Archdeacon  Beer in the morning and by the new  rector, Rev Lawrence Amor, iu the  evening. Tlie new incumbent conies  from New Westminster.  ; Reports from the Beaverdell district  say that this, year's work has resulted  in giving many claims on Wallace  mountain particularly all the earmarks  of great properties.  Superintendent Galloway is much  pleased with the showing being made  on the Strathmore. Some good ore is  coming out of the piopertv now.  The highest grade copper ore ever  mined in the Boundary is that now  being taken out of the Brooklyn.  Some very fine native copper has  been found in the rich gold ores of the  Athelstan.  The Emma looks bigger and better  than ever and is sending out a large  daily tonnage.  THE UNITED STATES ELECTIONS.  For those of our readers who do not  see the United States papers dealing  with the recent elections there we have  pleasure in presenting a summary of  the same. The Republicans swept the  country, carrying every state but the  solid south, and there Missouri appears  to have gone republican.  President Roosevelt was elected by  the largest majority of the electoral  college since 1872. The electoral college vote will be about 343 to 133. His  popular majority was the greatest in  the history of the country, being in  round numbers about one and one-half  millions. He beat candidate Parker  in his home precinct and received his  oppponent's congratulations on the  iesults quite early in the evening of  election day.   It'seems to have been a  Rev. E. Manuel who supplied for  Rev. J. B. Knox in the Methodist  church last Sunday, has conducted a  series of meetings in the same place  during the present week.  Rev.

Moxtkbal, November  9.���it   is  reported here that parties holdiiigauthor-  ity from the Grand Trunk Pacific have  secured an option   on   Ihe   purchase of  the charter of the Pacific,  Northern &  Omen'ca railway, running from Fita-  mal to Hazelton on  the Skeena river.  This charter carries with it a subsidy  from   the   British   Columbia   government,    it is understood that tlie option  was secured on the payment  of S5000.  The agreement calls for the closing of  the option  on  or before January 1st,  1905, at a figure of S60.000.   The option  on the charter   of   this   railway  was  taken subsequent to the return  of C.  M.   Hays,   president   of    the    Grand  Trunk   Pacific,   from   his  lour of the  British Columbia coast.     By personal  investigation Mr. Hays is said to have  confirmed the reports of his surveyors  and engineers that it would be impos  sible   to   use   the   Skeena river as a  medium of transportation  for railway  construction   material    and    supplies  when the building  of. the  G. T. P. is  commenced   in. British Columbia.    It  therefore   became   necessary to run a  railway from some point on the Pacific  coast right into the heart  of  that section of British Columbia which   would  be traverse'1 by  the new  transcontinental line. It was then that the Pacific  Northern   &   Omenica     charter    was  found and tied up pending  the  result  of the Dominion'election.  When construction is' commenced  west of the Rockies, it is said the line  from Kitamaat to Hazelton will be  built. Ovei it all the materials and  supplies to be used on the road in  British Columbia will be taken. Hazel-  ton will be the distributing point.  While in some quarters the securing Of  the charter from Kitamaat is taken to  meaii that that place will be the Pacific coast terminus of the Grand Trunk  Pacific, there is no authority that such  will be the case. Railway men who  are qualified to hazard an opinion  think that possibly the Grand Trunk  Pacific may only use the line from  Kitamaat as a feeders for the main  road during construction, ultimately  running.the main line to some, other  port. In the latter event, however, it  is the consensus of opinion that the  Kitamaat line would he operated as a  branch road.  Referring to Sir Henry's speech, the  Post says it is hardly necessary to  say that there is net even a scintilla of  justification for the inference that tlie  Laurier victory is nn evidence of anti-  Chamberlain sentiment.  The News says the question before  the electorate of Canada is reduced to  one question, the Grand Trunk Pacific  contract. The tariff question was absolutely quiescent during the campaign.  The Times says Sir Wilfrid Lauder's victory illustrates the difference  between political conditions in Canada  and Great Britain. The swinging pendulum is not yet acclimatized in the  Dominion. Success breeds fresh success, and victorious ministries seem to  enjoy the means of postponing indefinitely their downfall or decline. After commenting on the present prosperity in the Dominion the Times says  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's personality may  have had some bearing on the result.  The one recent episode, the Dundonald  affair, which may have led Englishmen at home to regard the Canadian  government with misgiving, has probably strengthened his hold on French  Canadians. It is only fair to say that  the Militia Bill was introduced after  Lord Dundonald's dismissal. The result of this contest shows that the  people do not share Mr. Borden's apprehensions regarding the Grand Trunk  Pacific scheme. The Times quotes  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's remarks ou the  preference question. It does not think  that they bear out the ideas of some  American writers that his success constitutes a rebuke to Chamberlain ism.  fa  HUDSON BAY KNITTING CO,  Montreal    Winnipeg    Dawsaii ;  wmim��d~me*ssmm^r^^v^t:^~s.

BRITISH PRESS ON THE ELECTIONS  London, Nov. 4���-The Daily Graphic  says Sir Wilfrid Laurier has scored a  great triumph. Imperial tariff reform  has caused no division of iopinion, Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's views are well known  in England, whilst Mr.- Borden, notwithstanding Roseberry's extraordinary assertion, pledged himself and his  party to the principle of mutual preference two years ago. After speaking  of the Grand Trunk Pacific being the  main party question, the Graphic savs:  "The Canadians, however, are too  prosperous to feel greatly inclined to  go -'ag in-thegovern men t'~. >>-"-"���=-������-------  In a speech at Edinburgh Sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerman said little light  had been thrown from the other side  of the Atlantic by the news of the  results of the elections in Canada.  There was a party there more committed to what might be called Mr.  Chamber'ain's policy, than the other.  It was not Mr. Chamberlain's friends  who had had the best of the contest.

THAT DEER HUNT-  The residents of the valley just  above town were surprised one day  about two* weeks since to see what  appeared a war party marching with  an air of vioiory through the valley.  Whether Japs or Russians was conjecture for a time. There did not appear  mobility enough about tlie squad for  Japs, there was not whiskers enough  for Russians. The party appeared to  be a compromise between infantry,  cavalry and artillery possessing qualities of all. The equipment was complete as to arms and ammunition. If  they carried any ikons thev were carefully packed in a box marked "Canadian Club" for safety, for no camp  follower in Boundary creek would dare  to break open such a box. But after  the last ranch had been passed the disguises werc removed and then were  revealed the faces of Messrs. Richardson, T.ogan, Halborg' and L,art;e.  Their destination was the divide between Boundary creek and Canyon  creek at a point about 20 miles removed  from Greenwood where they had  learned deer were very abundant and  it was deer aud bear they wanted.  They spent ten days in the wilderness  and located many fine deer and had  lots of target practice at them. .Some  of the party spent a large part of the  time looking for a strayed horse. To  secure this involved a walk to town for  a saddle horse and its subsequent return and a walk back. The deer made  excellent targets for the marksmen  but unlike their practice days av the  butts no flag was evei seen to indicate  that the mark was reached. About  the last day of the trip a dead deerwas  found and an evening "was spent in  deoate around the oil can stove as to  whether it should be credited to Richardson who had fired seven times at a  buck, or to Halberg who had unloaded  his rifle ten times on one. The debate  ended iu a draw.  The trip was voted a great success  for the boys got a few rabbits and  fool hens and a rancher who happened  their way with an old musket got them  U deer.

Webb's Chocolates are best, purist  and always fresh at Smith & McRat's.  THE WAR SITUATION.  There is little change in the war  situation in the east. The Japs keep  hammering away at Port Arthur,  gaining minor advantages and steadily  pressing to the ultimate fall of the  evidently fated .jity. The advantages  gained are at enormous cost to the  attacking army, who seem to count the  sacrifice of life as nothing that the desired end may finally be gained. The  Russians are displaying great stubbornness and powers of resistance in  -fha-iace^of���wliat���appears^ to -be��an  inevitable issue. Up north the armies  are face to face, each fortifying their  lines against what would appear to be  near at hand���tlie bloodiest battle in  modern times, Liaoyang and Sha river  not excepted. Any day now may wit  ness the terrible clash of the mighty  forces and the result none can foretell.  Some critics prophesy that the armies  will not come together this autumn  but it will be surprising if the Japs do  not undertake the offensive almost at  once. They are flushed with victory  after victory, are rested from their  late battles and appear to be casting  envious eyes on Mukden for winter  quarters.  >'\*s*\~r'****J\n  '      NO  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES  Will we permit any misrepresentation in our stores.
