HOUSE FURNISHERS -   -   Phone 27  ^:  The McBride government proposes to pay #850,000 to the Kettle  Valley lines.  It asks the people of Greenwood  Riding to approve tjiis policy. It is,  therefore, our business to learn precisely what the people of Greenwood  Riding are to get in return. ,.  Bear this in mind: Before Mr  McBride had said one word about his  Kettle Valley policy, )ohn Olivar at  ,Greenwood, and at Vancouver, had  stated that the connecting of this  Boundary District with the Coast was  absolutely the most important railway  work to be undertaken.  Don't.be afraid, therefore, that if  you vote for the Liberal candidate  you will be voting against direct connection with the Coast.  This connection is part of the  Liberal policy.  If Mr. McBride and Mr. Bowser  are henest men' they have been  wretchedly careless of the interest  of -Greenwood Riding in making  their bargain with the Kettle Valley  Lines.  They have not inserted in the  agreement one word about the old  debts, of the Midway and Vernon.  They have not inserted in it one word  about the route to be followed between Midway and Penticton. fThey  hare switched the subsidy from  this end to the Penticton end of the  n��w line. , ���"    -  WHY?  There are only three possible answers:  (1) The "new owners" want to  Ji  NITOI  There are 15 members of the Sanitol JL___  Family, any one of which is good.

(2) The "new owners" want to  build by some other route than the  one for which the old, subsidy was  given; or ���  (3) The "new owners">want to  earn the subsidy by building the Penticton end without building the  midway end at all.  Read the agreement. Don't take  our word for it. Greenwood wants  that road to be built at once, by way.  of thi west fork, There is nothing in the agreement to prevent the  "new owners" from earing the subsidy by building the   Penticton end,  WHICH  THE C   P.   R.   REQUIRES AS  A  link in its system, leaving the Midway end unbuilt, and leaving the province with no remedy but the covenant  of a debt burdened company, ' whost  early history, as everybody knows, was  one long record of incompetency,  graft' and extravagance, resulting in  failure from which it is now asking  the province to extricate it.  There is nothing in the agreement  to prevent the "new owners" from  building from Spokane and Republic  by way of the San Poil and Okanagan  valleys and sidetracking Greenwood  Riding altogether.  The'   Conservative    candidate    is  PLEDGED TO THIS WORTHLESS  AGREEMENT AS IT STANDS. The  Liberal candidate is �� pledged to assist  the construction of this line, direct  from Midway, by way of the West  Fork.  Which will you choose?  COUSIN KATE  li  the "Cousin Kate" company's performance, on ' Wednesday night, at the Auditorium, is.  any criterion of what Manager  McLaine has arranged for shows  for our winter's entertainment, he  is'to be congratulated.' An excellent comedy, delightfully  played by an exceptionally agreeable and talented company, every  minute of Wednesday evening  was enjoyable. Miss Jeanne Russell is a great actress; her rendering of the part of Cousin Kate  was most artistic and true to life.  Want of space alone precludes' a  more" detailed account. If you  were there you know all about it,  and if you were not there vou  missed it, that's all. But they  are coming^ ere again. The superb violin playing and singiug of  the Rev. James Bartlett is alone  worth the price and more.  SAD DEATH OF PIONEER  GENERAL NOTES  Hugh Cameron, aged 69, the  oldest of Boundary old timers,  died, on November 12, at Camp  McKinney from heart failure.  Hugie, as he was familiarly  known, had been in the Boundary  for nearly 30 years, and will be  much missed by all his old friends.  The funeral service took place on  Wednesday at tbe undertaking  parlors of T. M. Gulley & Co.  The Pioneer society of the Boundary escorted tbe remains to the  C. P. R. depot for the last journey  to New Westminster, when.- the  interment will take place.  SOCIALIST MEETING  The local Socialist meeting  last Friday night at the Auditorium was very largely attended'.  John Mclnnis M.. P. P. spoke  most fluently and denounced the  McBride administration as weak,  and the Railway Policy for its unbusinesslike propositions. Other  speakers were George Heatherton  and Mr. Fitzgerald of Vancouver.  A movement is on foot to fjbrce  King Leopold, of Belgium toTab-  dicate. ���_  Nearly 400 miners lost their  lives in the St. Paul coal mine at  Cherry, Illinois,'last week.  Lord Minto, late governor general of Canada, and now viceroy  of India, escaped assassination by  a narrow margin at Ahmedabad,  cm Monday.  .The French steamer, La Zviie,  was rammed and sunk in a logoff  Singapore by a British India  liner on Monday. Sharks devoured all who were not drowned.  A wild-eyed suffragette, armed  with a horsewhip, attacked Win-  ���ton Churchill this week, at Bristol, inflicting a nasty scar on his  face, and this is a plea for woman's right to vote.  Iu New York Robert Simpson,  an hypnotic subject, died while  under hypnotic influence. Hyp-  notizer, arrested for homicide,  persists in declaring man was yet  in a cataleptic condition.  MINING NOTES  NO SECURITY  FOR CREDITORS  In the last issue of the Ledge,  under the caption of '' Security for  Creditors," appeared a telegram from  Premier McBride to the following  effect:  "Nelson, Nov. 8,1909.  "A copy of the Boundary Creek  Times, dated Nov. 5, just shown me,  Please make public that the government has undertaking that all debts  against construction work on Midway  and Vernon line to value grade constructed, will be liquidated by Kettle  Valley lines. Not one dollar subsidy  is to be paid until this is done.  "R. McBride."  This, like many of the McBride  utterances, is worthy of something  more than a superficial examination.  There are two points that will strike  the reader: The security of the  Midway and Vernon creditors is limited to the present value of the constructed grade, and a subsidy is being  talked of where no subsidy exists. As  to the ; first point, the valueof the  construction work would probably be  a matter of arbitration, and in the settlement the creditors might receive  30 or even 50 per cent, of their  claims. This is certainly anything  but an assurance that they would be  paid in full. As to the second point:  The only subsidy in connection with  the part of the road under discussion  is the Dominion subsidy, and neither  the Provincial government or Mr.  McBride has much to say regarding  the terms of payment, if it be transferred to the Kettle Valley lines.  We do not consider the statement  in his telegram quite strong enough,  for unquestionably not one dollar of  the Dominion subsidy will be paid  until the legitimate obligations of the  Midway and Vernon are met in full.  We asked a few questions regard-  ing--the old Midway and Verhoji com  pany charter.    We now repeat these  questions,   which have not yet been  answered.  Who are now the "owners" of  this charter?      .  How did they get it?  On what terms?  Why do the new "owners" prefer to take their subsidy on the Pen-  ticton-Cputlee end of the line rather  than on the Midway end?  Again, we asked if there was any  agreement between the Midway and  Vernon company and the new "owners" by which some of these construction claims would be paid? . Mr.  McBride states above that there is an  undertaking to this effect. We can  do no better than repeat what we said  before, that if there is it ought to be  published, word for word, and, even  if there is, what guarantee is there  that it will ever be enforced and the  men paid? It appears clear that the  men must look to this private agreement as their only hope, and that, at  best, they must be prepared to accept  a percentage of their just dues.  -   MIDWAY NOTES  TO THE ELECTORS  OF THIS RIDING  Gentlemen:  Having accepted the Liberal  nomination in this Riding, I appeal to you for your votes on November 25tb, and for the following- reasons: I sincerHy endorse  the prilicv of ,the Liberal party  more especially tbeir determination for irrjr_u*diHfe railway connection with the coast, even if it  should be uecossury to construct  a connecting link as a Government enleqjrisi:.  I endorse ihe Libr-ral party in  its prom's,* of free homesteads for  aH ac'u:*] settlers, male or fe-  nr-1p; I <*nrl->rsp the Lilier.-tl party  in its j.-romise to ~mm;Hi<] i**ly <nr-  WE MUST HAVE  BETTER TERMS  If you believe in a railway  across the ]{<%\>r mountains vou  can't vote for the McBride government, because t'lev won't, build  it. If vou think Dan Mann an��l  Bob Green should run tbe province then vote for their tools,  the McBride Gcv-crr men* and iis  lesser accessories, the Conservative candidates  vey and tabulate all lauds available for settlement, also the  promise that there shall be local  control of local affairs.  I. believe that proper aid should  be given to railways whose construction will develop the resources of the Province.  I am absolutely opposed to Mr.  McBride's policv of guaranteeing  the Canadian Northern Railway  bonds,for the reason that the credit  of the Province is pledged too  deeply for the amount of actual  development procured, and I urge  all thinking men of either party  to inform themselves thoroughly,  before casting their ballot, of the  enormous amount of liability assumed. I uphold Mr. John Oliver's promise that the debts of  the Midway Vernon railway shall  be paid in full before any assistance is given to the owners of  that charter.  If I am unable to see every  elector personally, which is my  aim. it will be due to the short  time allowed by Mr. McBride  during nomination and election.  (Signed)    D. A.' MacDonald,  Liberal Candidate.  Premier McBride says he will  be prepared to consider all propositions that may be marie for  other railways through parts of  tbe province not serverl bv existing or projected lines and r-o deal  with them on their merits. But  by assisting McKenzie & Mann  bv lending the endorsing power  of the province to ihein, he deprives the province of any  further borrowing power, because  a liability of $45,000,000 is the  utmost limit of our credit. In  -bor\ '.vs deliver the province  over to Mann & McKenzia What  will there he 1, ft to assist other  railways with?

C. This is heiiij;  used as an argument in favor of  the Mclirule adrainistra-inn. The  MeHride Bargains wi'.'n ihe various railways, including his bar  t^iin with the mysterious- "new  owners" of the Midway-Vernon  charter, should not be swallowed  whole by the intelligent voter  without discussing his policy on  i's merits as a business transaction.

Tatlow ;n:d Fulton, two  most honorable and able men ol  sii'f.iiis, see more tiiaii One flaw in  t'r.is series of grand stand contract mjngering and have withdrawn   from   public office, rather  his sovereign will," without ever  looking into the merits or demerits of a loan of public moneys  for which he has little to offer it:  return. Because Alberta and Saskatchewan have made a similar  bargain is no criterion that it i��  a good one for B. C. to make.  Both these new provinces are  young, and what may appeal to  their infantile provincial governments has already proved unwholesome fodder to stuff down  the throats of the great majority  of B. C. business men.  Several weaknesses in the McBride policy are apparent at first  glance, and where these weaknesses are shown to exist in clauses  omitted, sound security unprovided for, Mr. McBride says "Oh,  but I have that point covered by  mother agreement between myself and the contracting party  concerned, in my waistcout pocket.  I can't produce it, or I won't, but  j vou can take my assurance that  it is so."  We   don't   want  personal and  private assurances.    We want all  the matters  concerning   all   the  "deals" with the various dealers  published and made public property,   as   the   partial   contracts,  that have   appeared,   are  public  property.      Why   publish   only a  part of the transactions and leave  out   the   most    important    local  issues,   and have  us endorse the  whole  transaction   knowing only  the side used as bait   to catch the  unwary   voter?     The   people of  British Columbia are asked to endorse a note of ��21,000,000 on Mr.  McBride's     personal     assurance  that   we   won't  ever   be asked to  pay it;   that   we   get for that immediate railway construction and  a first mortgage on the roan���on  a road which does not  pretend to  ojm���� up *<w area, but which will  parallel the C. P. R. for upwards  of 260 ,miles.    Aud   it   is   more  than a little dnwbtful if the Canadian   Northern   could    produce  that first mortgage when it comes  down to business, or whether- they  would if they could    Mr. Bowser  himself says:    "There is simply  a memorandum of agreement and  that no contract has been entered  into  as  yet, and   that in dealing  with that class of people one has  to be very careful, as  they would  take anv   advantage  of the government possible."    So Mr. Bow.-  ser  is not  too  sure of that first  mortgage himself,   and yet Mr.  A letter just received from Mr.  John Oliver mentions the McBride  policy and the Kettle Valley Railway contract. Mr. Oliver says:  "We are prepared ^to endorse this  contract with certain amendments. '1 he lair wage clause  should be amended* so as to insure the payment of white men's  wages to all employees. Another  clause should be in_erted compelling the company to pay the  legitimate debts of the Okanagan  Construction company before they  would be entitled to a subsidy.  We are strongly in favor of building the road through the Hope  mountains, so as to give the  shortest possible route to the  coast. We propose to give free  land grants to actual settlers, and  make that include pre-emptors  who have not yet paid tor their  homesteads."  This may be supplemented by  some of the statements made bv  Mr. Oliver in his speech at Nelson last Friday evening. Concerning the McBride railway policy, Mr. Oliver feels that the results" to be secured are not proportionate to the burden proposed to  be shouldered by the province.  He showed that the Canadian  Northern paralleled the Grand  Trunk Pacific from Edmonton to  beyond Yellowhead, and that  from Katnlocps to Vancouver it  paralleled the Canadian Pacific.  Of 500 miles on the mainland only  200 would be a colonizing road.  He held that, if the road went to  Nicola and the Hope mountains,  it would open up 400 miles on the  mainland. <   a :   A. company has been formed to  manufacture" steel by electricity  at Welland.

The lowest cost copper producing mine in the world today is  Nevada Consolidated, which during the quarter ended June 30 last  produced fine copper at a cost of  6.75 cents per pound, beating the  record of Utah copper by slightly  better, than two cents per pound.  For the current quarter Nevada  Consolidated will very much better the records made duriug the  previous quarter and will very  likely show a production of fine  copper aggregating 15,000,000  pounds at a cost around five cents  per pound, which will be the lowest cost record known to the history of copper mining.  <��  Lame back  comes  on  suddenly and  is extremely painful.

This advice is  coming from all sides as a result of  recent experiments on foods to determine which are the best for strength  ind endurance. It has been proved  that eaters of Quaker Oats and such  cereals are far superior in strength and  endurance to those who rely upon the  usual diet of heavy, greasy foods.  When all is said and done on the  cereal food question, the fact remains  that for economy and for results in  health and strength, Quaker Oats stands  first of all.

He greatly needed sleep,, and  Itonlght In the open that was out of  {the question. He could gain several  .ours' rest where he was and still get  iway before daybreak.-' He drew to-  etber the altar cushions and lay down,  Ithe canvas bag beside bim, but he was  [cold, and at length he rose and went  {into the vestry' for a surplice. He  ipped this about bim and, lighting a  | cigarette, lay down again. He was  [very tired, and In a few minutes he  I was sleeping heavily.  The last half consumed cigarette  ���dropped from' his relaxing fingers to  Ithe cushion, where it made a smolder-  ling nest of fire. A tiny tongue of  Iflame caught the edge of a wall hang:  flng, ran up to the dry oaken rafters  ad speedily Ignited them. In fifteen  Iminutes the Interior of the chapel was  |a mass of flame, and Hugh woke gasp-  tig and bewildered.  With a cry of alarm he sprang to his  feet, seized the bag ,of coin and ran to  Ithe door of the study. In bis haste be  Istambled against it, and the dead lock  (snapped to.

Iron bars were set across  Ithem.  He made shift to wrap the surplice  [about bis mouth against tbe stifling'  noke and fiery vapors.

He stooped and clutch-  led a handful of the coins and crammed  (them Into bis pocket   Was he to die,  er all, like this, caught like a rat in  fa trap?  Uttering a hoarse cry, with the  [strength of despair, Hugh wrenched a  Lpew from the floor and made of it a  ���ladder to reach the rose window.  [Mounting'tbis; he beat frantically with  (his fist upon the painted glass. The  j crystal shivered beneath the blows,  land clinging to'the Iron supports, bis  [beard burned to the skin, he set his  [face to the aperture and drew a gnlp-  |lng breath of the sweet cold air. In  , his agony, with that fiery hell opening  ''beneath him, he could see the massed  'people watching from the safety that  , was so near.  "Look! Look!" The sudden cry  J,went up, 'and a thrill of awe ran  > through the crowd. The glass Hugh  [had shattered bad formed the face of  the penitent thief In tbe window de-  [slgn, and his outstretched arms fitted  lthose of the figure. It was as though  'by sbme ghastly miracle tbe painted  [ features had suddenly sprung into life.  , the haggard eyes opened In appeal.  All at once there came a shout of  ' warning. The wall opened outward,  i tottered and f ell. ,  Then it was that they saw the writh-  ; ing figure, tangled in the twisted lead  barn  of  the   wrecked   rose   window.  Shielding their faces from  thy unen-  [ durable beat they reached and bone it  to Bafety, laying it on the crisp, snowy  1 grass and tearing off the singed and  smoking misisterial robes.

Harry had beea  formally arraigned the  second morning after his  self surrender and bad pleaded not  guilty. The grand jury was in session  ���indeed, had about finished Its labors  ���and there bad been no reason for delay. All necessary witnesses for the  state were on the ground, and Felder  for his part bad no others to summon.  So that when "~Dr. Brent one keen forenoon swung himself off a Pullman at  the station, returning from his ten  days' absence, he found tbe town  thrilling with tile" excitement of the  first day of-tbe trial. Before he left the  station he bad learned of Prendergast"s  death and accusation and knew that  Tom Felder had come to the prisoner's  defense. Dr. Brent had taken no stock  In the young lawyer's view of Hugh,  Stires.     ,  He betook himself to the filled courtroom. The court had opened two hours  before and half the jury had been selected. His attention was given first  to the bench where the prisoner sat  a*id second to a chair close to the railing beside Mrs. Halloran's, where'a  girl's face glimmered palely under a  light veil.  Toward this chair the hundreds of  eyes in the room that morning had  often turned. Since the day Mrs. Halloran had surprised Jessica at work  upon the rock statue she had kept her  counsel; but as the physician had conjectured, the monument had been stumbled upon and bad drawn curious visitors. Thus the name on the grave had  become common property and the coincidence had been chattered of. That  Jessica bad chiseled tbe statue was not  doubted. She had bought the tools in  town, and old Paddy Wise, the blacksmith, bad sharpened them for her.  The story Prendergast had told in the  general store, too, bad not been forgotten, and the aid she had given the  fever stricken man had acquired a new  significance in face of the knowledge  that she had more than once been admitted to "the jail- with Felder. From  the moment of the. opening of the trial  Jessica had divided Interest with tbe  prisoner. ���  Circumstantially speaking, the evidence was flawless. Dr. Moreau, while  little known and less liked, had figured  in the town as a promoter and an Inventor of "slick" stock schemes. H��  had come there with Hugh Stires from  Sacramento, where they. had had a  business partnership of short duration.  There had been bad blood between  them there, as the latter had once admitted. ���. The prisoner had pre-empted  the' claim on Smoky mountain In an  abortive "boom" which Moreau had  engineered, and over whose proceeds  die pair, it was believed, had fallen  out .He bad then, to use the attorney's  phrase, "swapped the devil for the  witch" and had taken up with Prea-  dergast who by the manner of bis taking off had finally justified a jail record in another'state. Soon after this  break Hugh Stires had vanished. On  the day following his last appearance  in the town the body of Moreau had  been found on the Little Paymaster  claim shot by a cowardly ballet  through the back, a fact which precluded the possibility that the deed  had been done in self defense. There  was evidence that he bad died a painful and lingering death. Suspicion had  naturally pointed to the vanished man,  and this suspicion had grown until,  after some months' absence, be had  returned, alleging that be had lost his  memory of tbe past, to resnme his life  In the cabin on the mountain and bis  For the nine months endine"  Sep'. 30, Odvx to tbe value of  $85,000 was exported from Mexico to the United Smtes, to be  used, after being- polisbed at San  Diego, Cal., for interior decoration in the new peace congress  building at the Hague,  e0��0����sa����a09**e��e��_*����-0 ��  ��  a        ��  ��� . ��� *  There are ISO men employed  on the new C.
