The Greenwood smelter, while it has  a. good'sized pay-roll, will in a few  weeks be t.e.uing ore, and then the  .employment qf a large number of men  living r'ght in the city will riiean  much for those in business in the city,  as will also the etiiuloyment of a large.  _pumber of men at i lie Laidlaw smelter.  . A decided improvement in business  generally is expected after the election.  "The Dominion elections which took  place today, and the elections in the  ��� United States yesterday, conclude a  long series of elections both on this  continent and in the old country.  Elections have a tendency to make  things unsettled in the business world,  and all save the professional politicians are heaving sighs of relief that  they are now over.  Taking everything into consideration, the outlook for Greenwood is the  brightest. Jifuated among mines that  give promise of being the greatest on'  continent and having two smelters that  will give employment to a large number of men���these with other advantages insure for it brighter times in the  near .future.  WATERLAND   CASE.  *<.#*.).*##.!.##*##*##���. ft#*^^  week. "Of course," he continued^  "we naturally look for a revival of  trade in the fall, but there is something beyond this that accounts for increased trade and brighter prospects."  The business man was only voicing  the views of other merchants in the  city. There is a decided improvement  in Greenwood and a number of causes  have contributed and are contribuiting  towards such a gratifying result. In  the first place, the natural tendency,  for trade to increase as winter approaches is an important factor. Then  in the city itself, while the building  trade is not booming, it is much  brighter than it was during the summer. -It is a peculiar fact���but nevertheless a fact���that during the summer  when lumber is dry, other building  material in good condition and everything is favorable, but little building  goes on. When the cold weather sets  in, shorter days come and work can be  accomplished under greater disadvantage, many make up their minds that  they need new residences or business  blocks.  Then again quite a number of men  have been employed in the city during  the last month. The lumbering business has picked up and woodmen are  being kept busjr^ The employment qj  a'farge"hiir-ibe'r"of men at the Laidlaw  smelter has added to the payroll that is  being expended in the city. Pros  pectors have returned from the hills  and are making Greenwood their  future home.  But it is in mining that the greatest  improvement is shown. The great  Mother Lode mine never looked better,  a body of pure chalcopyrite recently  encountered at the 300-foot level adding greatly *to the known wealth of  the big property. This discovery has  had an appreciable e_fec,t on the price  of British Columbia Copper company's  shares which, according to the Engineering and Mining Journal, are being  quoted at .over $12 per share ou the  New York Exchange.  Superintendent Harry Johns is doing good work' on the Crown Silver,  one of the properties owned by the  Montreal Boundary Creek company.  There is magnificent ore on the property, and new drifts which are being  run are meeting new wealth. But little  work has recently been done on the  Sunset, the management being desirous of further, developing the Crown  Silver. "On the Morrison a rich strike  was recently made, and this property  never looked better than it does ot the  present time. E. A.

Prewar, (foreman), Thos. S; McPherson, W; R. Mclean, P,7B. Lys, George N. Gilchrist,  W. M. McBride, E. "Vernon Thompson  and David W. Rutherford. For the  plaintiff, Mr. W. A. Macdonald, Q. C,  and Mr. A. M. Johnsqu appeared, while  the city was represented by Mr. W. A.  Galliher. and; "Mr. Andrew Leamy.  Mayor Hardy occupied a seat alongside  of the counsel for.the city and watched  the proceedings with much interest, '  After the ppehing remarks by Mr.  McDonald, C." W. H. Sanson was called  for the plaintiff.' He deposed that he  had been city engineer from April to  June, 1899,; Mr.-.Hardy** then being  Mayor. The.plan produced was made  by him, and snowed the locality of the  overflow! particularity the Deadwood  street crossing, the Alhambra tiieatre  and the Miners' hotel. He had seen  the work of filling in-Boundary creek  at the Deadwood street crossing going'  on, under the supervision of J. A. McMillan, city foreman, and in his opinion the direct cause of the overflow  was the filling in of the bed of, the  creek without making proper provision  for carrying off such water as would  naturally find its way into this bed,  by building a'flu,me or culvert to enable  the water tq pass through. He estimated the quantity of water running  through Boundary creek at its normal  state as about 1,000 miner's inches,  while upwards of 600 wagons of earth  and rock had been used in the filling.  One of the most important features of  his evidence was that while he was city  engineer he advised Mayor H^rdy that  unless a flume or cylvef _ v-aa put in at  the*DeadwoQd street crossing, there  would certainly be a flood or overflow  when, the usu^l spring freshet came.  This year, after the damage was done,  the city had put in a flume such as  should have been put in in the first  place.  Mr, C, -3��. Shaw, another former city  engineer, followed giving much the  sarae=evidencer-He-said"that*-"in^road'  building one of the first principles was  to perfect roads crossing old river* beds  or ravines where water might gather,  by putting in proper culverts or flumes.  If such a "culvert" as Mayor Hardy, in  his examination on discovery, had  claimed was put in, had actually been  put in, which he doubted, it would be  of no.a vail, as the loose earth from  above would sift down and form a perfect dam. '  A. Forbes Procter, C. P. R. engineer,  gave evidence.as to the proper method  of building a road across a dried up  stream or water course, and to the  effect that such a "culvert" as had been  described by Mayor Hardy, was wholly  useless.  " Walter Waterland, the plaintiff, was  next called, and detailed his experiences on the night of the flood. He  estimated his loss on business, due to  flood, at $1,800, damage to stock 51,000,  damage to building S2,000. and loss of  cordwood $200j, The original cost of  his hotel had been in the neighborhood  of $10,000, made up as follows: lumber  $2,600, hardware $2,200, carpenter work  $1,500, plastering $1,400 and electric  light wiring $450. A somewhat lengthy  cross-examipation by Mr. Galliher  failed to break his evidence in any  particular.  This concluded the proceedings for  the day, the court adjourning at 5:15  until 10 a. m. on Saturday.  When court open Saturday, Robert  Mauhen, carpenter, was the first witness examined, his statement going to  prove that it would cost $2,000 to repair  the hotel."  ' Mr. Galliher, for the defence, then  formerly admitted the incorporation of  the city of Greenwood, and that the  flooded area was within the municipality.    -      - *.'.-'  Mr.'Robert Wood was the rText witness.;-An .important . feature in his  evidence; was that he had in 1899, when  Deadwood street was being filled in,  interviewed the city engineer and pro-  lested against filling in the old -creek  in the way it was done, and had also  warned Thomas Hardy, the mayor, but j  had been snubbed for his pains. He  had been down at the scene of the flood  the morning after the overflow, and  haying examined the scene thoroughly,  gave as his deliberate opinion that the  flood had been directly due to the filling in of the bed of the creek by the  citv at the Deadwood street crossing.  A lengthy cross-examination by Mr.  Galliher failed to weaken his evidence.  Mr. Macdonald put in the evidence  of C. F. Alston, city engineer, taken on  examination at Greenwood, and rested  his case.  For the defence, Mr. Galliher first  called Sidney M. Johnson, P. L. S.,  who produced another plan of the locality in question, made by himself, and  gave geneaal evidence of the surroundings. He also said that in 1899 he had  surveyed lots-10 and 11. in the rear of  the Alhambra theatre, for the owner,  Mr. Fletcher, and that actually while  the survey was. being made Mr."Fletcher had men and teams at work filling  and grading up their lots and the 16-  foot alley way between them and the  Alhambra, and that when the grading  and filling in was completed, it formed  a perfect dam across the old bed of the  stream, and it was this, and not the  filling up of the old bed of the "������'' ream  at Deadwood street, that causej the  flood. He also produced a profile, show-^  ing the high water mark in 1900 ancT  the cross-section of the grading of Mr.  Fletcher's lots.  Mayor Hardy gave evidence as to the  filling in of Deadwood"street .and the  grading of Mr. Fletcher's lots. He denied explicity of being warned by  Robert Wood against filling in Dead-  wood street without putting in a proper  flume, and said that the provision made  by .tie city for drainage was a proper  one. It consisted of throwing in large  holders and then covering these with  smaller stones before putting iri the  earth, and would be sufficient to allow  the water to percolate through. If this  had not been in his judgment a-proper  culvert, he would have seen that a better one was put in, but he had considered the matter and was satisfied he had  done what was right.  The last witness examined for lhe  city.was William McBride, a prospector  and cattle raiser, whose house is next  to the Miner's hotel. He said that on  the night of the flood he had, with the  bartender of the.Miner hotel, endeavored for a while to keep back the water,  bu,t their efforts were unavailing. He  gave his opinion7 that the flood was due  to three causes; first, the grading of  lots 10 and 11, i. e. Mr. Fletcher's lots  in the rear of the Alhambra, the building of the Alhambra basement causing  a filling up of the alley way, and third,  the filling in by'the city ��of the Dead-  wood street crossing of the old creek  bed.   .

The record for shipments from th e  mines of Phoenix show   that   in   less  than four months more than 30,000 tons  of gold-copper ore have been   sent  to  the reduction works.   At first the ore  was sent out at the rate   of   150   tons-***-  daily, from July 11 to August  24 ;  on    '  the latter date it was increased  to 300  tons, or 10 cars  per day,   which   was  kept up till October 17, when the  nage was again  doubled to   600  each 24 hours, and ou one or two  pearly 1,000 tons were shipped.

Not since the  days of '78, when Sir John with his  protection slogan carried all before  him, did the people of Canada so unitedly endorse a leader and a party. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier was endorsed by the  people o.f Canada and he goes back to  power with a bigger majority than  eyen-^Ontario influenced doubtless"by  the racial cry and the defections of a  few disgruntled Liberals like H. H.  Cook, was left behind in the sweeping  endorsation of the Liberal party, and  a few stalwarts were left at home. In  Quebec it was practically a clean  sweep, only seven Conservatives were  returned out of sixty-five. The mar-  ilime provinces joined in the procession  and piled up Liberal majorities, while  Manitoba, the Northwest and British  Columbia held their own.  The most noticable feature of the  fight was the slaughter of Conservative leaders. The best of eraitors is no  more. All save Haggart went down  before enthusiatic Liberals and indifferent Conservatives. Sir Charles  Tupper, Bart; Hon. Geo. Foster,  Dr. Montague, Hugh John McDonald,  Sir Adolphe Caun���in fact all the Conservative leaders were defeated,  The C. P. R. telegraph company furnished the returns at the Auditorium  and gave an excellent service. It was  a small but jolly crowd who showed an  interest in the federal elections. Shortly  after seven the returns began to come  in, and party men cheered when any  notable victory was announced. Lack  of space prevents a detailed statement  of the results. In this prooince Ralph  "Smith, Labor, endorsed by the Liberal  government, was elected in Vancouver  Island. Victoria, true to ancient love,  returned Prior and Earle. Morrison  carried New Westminister.  Siifton simply slaughtered Hugh |  John in Brandon, pilling up a majority  of over 400. Puttee, Labor, endorsed  by Liberals, carried Winnipeg by a big  majority, and Blair ran up against the  C. P. R. and Foster in St. John and  came out with over 1,000 majority.  The --Island," Prince Edward, sent  out word that only one Liberal was  elected, but before the final returns  the tables were reversed and only one  Conservative willvsit in the house for  the Island. ���'.. ���  It was a glorious victory !  Yale-Carriboo will be next  P. Burns, the cattle king, according  to the Nelson Miner, hassecured con- ~  trol of a  $2,000,000  copper "mine  in  Mexico.   It says :  "Some years ago when Patrick Burns  was just beginning to gain  liis   reputation as the 'cattle king of  the west'  he assisted a  young English  mining  expert    and   engineer   who   was    in  financial   or  other  difficulties.     The  young man was grateful and  always  made it a point to keep in  touch  with _  Mr. Burns, in the hope that some  day1"  he might be able to repay him for the  favor shown.    But as time went on the  Englishman drifted to other parts, andf  for a few years Mr. Burns heard noth-  of him. Less than a year ago, however,1  a letter came from this mining engineer.

He had not the funds  to develop the property, and he was  anxious that Mr. Burns should take!  hold of it, because, as he expressed it,|  there were millions in it. Mr. Burns'���  had enough faith in his frieiid to send  a man down to look at the property.  This man came back with a confirmation of the report of the Englishman.  Then Mr. Burns consulted with Mr.  Bruce White, of Nelson, and the conference resulted in Mr. White's departure for Mexico. When Mr. White left  Nelson he did not say where he vras  going, and so tar as the newspapers  were concerned, they never knew���until now. Mr. White went directly to  the property and examined it. Everyone who knows Bruce Whiteknows him  to be one of the most conservative  mining men in British Columbia, and  when he came back and told his associate, Mr. Burns, that the property  was a wonder, Mr. Burns was sure the  Englishman had not overestimated his  find. When a man gets hold of a good  thing he usually" likes to see it for himself, and so Mr. Burns decided to pay a  visit to Mexico. He did so, and has  only recently returned. He didn't go  to confirm Mr. White's report, for he  knew that was right, and he came back  just as enthusiastic aB the Englishman  himself. The several visits resulted  in Mr. Burns taking hold of the  property, or in other words securing  the controlling interest. It is said to  be a veritable mountain of copper and  to be one of the largest deposits of copper oh the continent. The property is  within a few miles of the sea, which  renders the transportation of ore easy,  Steam wagon's carry the output of the  mines to the water, where it is loaded  on steamers and carried to the nearest  smelter. Already there are over 200  men at work on the property. It is reported that Mr. Burns was offered  $2,000,000 for his interest, but that he  refused to sell. Mr. Burns admits that  a high figure was offered him, but he  believes that when the property has  been fully developed it will con_j  a greatly increased pricg  then be inclined^-���*"*''!

The Times is quite confident of the re-  ��� suit   and the  advice and-suggestions  which follow are.based on theassump-  - tion   that the Laurier government is  Sustained.   The election   in the Yale-  Cariboo district will not  take place for  at least two weeks and  all parties in  the contest will have an opportunity to  base future action, upon  the result of  the general elections today.  There is a great need for earnest  cinsideration.���"*There- are two candidates in the field, endorsing practically  the same platform, ..who are dividing  a streugth that is Sufficient to defeat  the Conservative candidate, Mr. McNeill- If the labor meu want the return of Mr., McNeill, if they want a  niember in Ottawa who is opposed to  the Laurier government-then all they  have to. do. is to keep Mr. Foley in the  field and support him. Surely that is  not what Mr. Foley or the laboring  men want.  Laboring men acquainted with political conditions in_ this large constituency-are fir inTin the belief thatthe.  election of M!r., Foley is. impossible.  He will make a strong showing in  Greenwood, Rossland and Nelson and  in the mining districts tributary to  these cities, but there are nearly 10,-  000 voters outside of these districts who  will fail to appreciate the necessity for  a labor candidate and who, will not  give him their support. But Mr.  Foley may secure sufficient votes in the  mining centers to defeat Mr. Galliher  aad elect Mr. McNeill**  _ Ev.en_admitting-that_Mr,_Foley___will  "be elected, there are two courses open  to him, one to look wise and accomplish nothing, and the other is to ally  himself with either of the parties in  the house. Party government recognizing only two parties, the government in power oa the one side and  those opposed to them on the other.  The' member who stands in the lobby  or sits in the*aisle might as well be at  home.  The history of third parties in Canada show that they have been a failure  and that sooner or later they became  absorbed by either of the two great  parties in this country. It is now a  dozen or more years since the equal  rights movement became popular in  Ontario. Equal rights' candidates were  nominated in different constituencies  aud several were elected, but in one or  two sessions, thc equal rights members  were either good Grits or good Tories  and the party was dead.  Then Dalton McCarthy, one of the  brainiest men in the Conservative  party, broke away from them and  was strong in denunciation of their  policy. Opposition to the Conservative party won the admiration and  sympathy of the Liberals, and in the  election of 1896, Mr. McCarthy ran in  North Simcoe and Brandon. In neither  constituency was he opposed by the  Liberate. One good turn deserved another and when Hon. Clifford Sifton  was "appointed minister of interior,  Mr.. McCarthy resigned the constituency iri his favor. Mr. McCarthy died  and his son, Mr. Leighton McCarthy,  was nominated as an independent in  North Simcoe. Again he met no opposition^ from the Liberals. He is the  .independent candidate in North Sim-  id he is receiving Liberal  .'that - was  je patrons of  pleader and  a party jn the Ontario legislature, but  where are they today? They are all  good Liberals. Patrons like John  Tolmie'.pf West Bruce, Rogers, Petit  and others .went to Dominion parliament as patrons, forswearing allegiance to either of the political parties,  but they found that in order to be useful they must ally themselves to either  party and the patron members elected  in 1S96 are Liberal candidates in the  election of 1900.  Laboring men can find in the history  of their own partv sufficient to convince them that they are acting unwisely in this constituency. A. W..  Puttee, a labor candidate, was elected  to the house of Commons and what did  he do when he went there? Did he bemoan his fate because he had no party  in the house? No! He did the only  wise thing he could do. He supported  the Liberal party because tliey evinced  a strong interest in tlie laboring classes  and were prepared to pass legislation  in tlie labor interests. Mr. Puttee was  a candidate in Winnipeg. No Liberal  candidate was put up to oppose him  and he received the support of the  Liberals.  Ralph Smith is president of the  Trades and Labor Council. He is a  clever man. He has plenty of good  common sense and is a tower of  strength to the labor party. The Dominion Trades and Labor Council of  which he is president, recognizing his  great ability, desired that he should represent them in the Dominion parliament and asked the Miners' union of  Nanamio to nominate him.. The  Liberals appreciating Mr. Smith's  worth, endorsed him and repudiated  Mr. Sloane who, although running as  an independent Liberal, received no  encouragement from Liberals as a  party.  The Liberals instead of opposing  Mr. Puttee in Winnipeg and Mr.Smith  iii Nanimo, supported them recognizing that they had good claims to the  seats. They made a common cause  against a common enemy. Did the  laboring men accord the Liberals the  same treatment in this district ?  The Liberals held a convention in  Revelstoke and nominated Mr. "Galliher, a gentleman who has always  sympathized with and always worked  for labor's interests. The Conservatives nominated a strong man in Mr.  McNeill. Considering the fact that  the Liberals were supporting, Mr.  Ralph Smith, a labor candidate in  Nanimo, and Mr. Puttee, a labor candidate in Winnipeg, they very properly  looked for reciprocal support on the  part of the labor men iu this district,  but instead they found a labor candidate nominated, so that the Liberal  strength will be divided and the Conservative thus enabled to win.  Today the Laurier government will  be returned. ., We ask the laboringmen  if they think it gooi policy after having received "th.. support of the government in Winnipeg and Nanimo, to  reward it by opposing the government  candidate in this constituency? Unless  they desire the election of Mr. McNeill,  laboring men should join the Liberals  in securing the election of Mr. Galliher. We do not question the right of  labor men to run a candidate but we  do quarrel with their wisdom in rtm-  niug"'a candidate in this constituency  at the present time.  UNITY OF PURPOSE ESSENTIAL.  Unity is strength, and a united  government^such^as^-we.^ow^^haxe.  backed by a strong and united following, representative of every section of  the Dominion, will give to the administration of the affairs of Canada just  that robust strength and energy which  is needed, to go forward still more  rapidly ih the new century than she  has done in the closing four years of  the present. But where would such  strength and energy come from if by  any possible chance���a most utterly  absurd . supposition it must be admitted���the Tories were returned to  power? ''  The fortunes of the party are still at  the mercy of the identical men who  were discredited in the spring of 1896  by "The Nest of Traitors" incident  leaders whom the Montreal Star de.  clared must be got rid of before the  party could hope to be good for anything again. It is amusing to hear  these same men declaring that they are  sweetly united once more, when Sir  Mackenzie Howell is stumping South  Lanark against his late colleague,  John Haggart, and when the, same  gentleman absolutely refused to appear  on the same platform with the man  who led the revolt in 1896, and the man  who benefitted by it and succeeded to  the premiership. Three other members of the late government who are  still leaders: Messrs. Caron, Montague and Clarke Wallace were, with  Mr, Haggart, mixed up in a charming  squabble over a very unsavory anonymous letter incident in which each of  the quartette appeared bent on finding  the other fellow. It is noteworthy that  while these men had' been bosom companions for many years, they are not  in any way associated in the joys and  sorrows of the present contest. And  so on through the list.  The rank and file, follov ing the example of their leaders, ar_s divided up  into distinct and more or less hostile  camps, and the evidence of this are so |  apparent that no one cxi* possioly be  misled by the loud vociferations that  unity, peace and concord reign suprem  within the Tory ranks. Moreover the  policy, or .lather policies, of the party  are as various,divergent and as antagonistic as the sections of the party itself..  Pro-Freeh in Quebec, ultra-British in  Ontario, out-and-out protection in the  east, free trade in the west, anti-Protestant in Quebec, as extreme in'the  opposite direction elsewhere, and so  forth. What kind of unity and what  kind of strength can possibly be expected from such an aggregation of  "statesmen" arid such a conglomeration of "policies?"  SPREADS LIKE WILDFIRE.  When things are "the best" they  become "the best selling." Abraham  Hare, a leading druggist of Belleville,  O., writes: "Electric Bitters are the  best selling bitters I have handled in  20 years." You know why? Most diseases begin in disorders of stomach,  liver, kidney, bowels, blood and nerves.  Electric Bitters tones up the stomaeh,  regulates liver, kidneys and bowels,  purifies the blood, strengthens the  nerves, hence cures multitudes'of maladies. It builds up the entire system.  Puts new life and vigor into anyiweak,  sickly, rundown man orwoman. Price  50 cents. Sold by Miller Bros., druggists. " .  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

R. detectives, Burns,  of Montreal, H. A. Jansen, of the  secret service department, Fort William, other detectives and a score of  spotters were giving the Columbia &  Western railway considerable attention  during the past two months. As a result, two C. P. R. passenger conductors are hunting other jobs and; the  coast and American newspapers have  been furnished with the nucleus of an  interesting story which by the aid of  the journalistic imagination has been  developed into four er five columns of  interesting reading matter.  The bare facts of the case do not  make aB thrilling a story as the  adorned tales of the outside papers.  Two conductors running' between  Greenwood and Rossland arranged  with hotel runners to sell resold tickets  which they accepted as good on the  trains. The hotel rnnners sold those  tickets only to such persons as they  knew. So far as Greenwood is con-  coerned only a comparatively few  cheap tickets were sold probably not  more than fifty during the summer.  The C. P. R. officials soon discovered  that something was wrong and spotters have been quietly at work for  several months. C. P. R. detectives  too made frequent trips over the road  and they at last succeeded in discovering the leakage." The conductors were  dismissed. Whether' further action  will be taken has not yet been de-  ' termined.  Against this are unsold debentures  amounting to $20,000, In the event of  the debentures not being sold, or are  sacrificed, and it is Tforced to pay the  judgments against it, the position to  say the least, will not be ai pleasant  one; I think the situation is sufficiently grave to call for action on 'the part  of those who are interested in the city.  A meeting should be called to consider  the matter and see what can be done.  Ratepayer.  TO THE  DEAF.  A rich lady cured of her deafness  and noises in the head by Dr. Nicholson's artificial ear drums, gave $10,000  to his institute, so that deaf people  unable to procure the ear drums may  have them free. Address No. H520C,  The Nicholson Institute, 780 Eighth  Avenue, New York, U. S. A.  TAKE HO   CHANCES.  THE   BRIDGE   AT   ROBSON.  ���   John Gunn, the cotractor who is  to  build the stonework for the C.  P. R.  bridge at Robson, is registered at the  Hotel Hume.   A portion  of his plant  has already arrived and within a week  he expects to have the   work   actively  under way.   The contract is  a   large  one, involving the quarrying and  lay  ing of 5,000 yards of stone,   The  cost  to the C. P. R. is about $80,000.   The  entire span is 800 feet long,  and Mr.  Gunn is to   build   the   abutments on  either shore and the   six   piers   upon  which the superstructure will rest.   At  .present deep water there is 35- feet in  ' the river, and the stonework   will   be  built by means of caissons.   A couple  of divers will be brought in to explore  the bed of the river and to determine  as to the foundations, etc:   The rock  will probably be quarried in   the immediate vicinity of Nelson.   Mr. Gunn  found considerable difficulty in locating a quarry where he could operate to  advaritage." The limestone encountered  was not stratified as'is essential where  the rock is to be used for building purposes, and the gratiite was badly broken up.- He has located   a   deposit  of  granite near the city, which he believes  will answer the   purpose   admirably.  The stone will be dressed at the bridge.  The superintendent of the work will be  J. Murray, while H. E. Armstrong will  represent the C.  P. R.   Two  cars  of  plant, including derricks, hoist powers  aud hoisting  engines,   have  already  been delivered at Nelson and the balance of the equipment, consisting of  three carloads of plant will be   along  this week.   The work is to be completed during low water, which means that  the stonework must be completed   by  June next. ���Tribune.  "Don't stop the growing time", has  appeared more than once among the  mottoes prominent at Liberal meetings, and it conveys an injunction  which Canada cannot afford to' disregard. Trade and commerce are always  exceeedingly susceptible to outside influences. This is amply demonstrated  by the marvellous development brought  about by the improved conditions  which followed the change of government in 1896, and inasmuch as the only  definite policy which Sir Charles  Tupper has so far announced on behalf  of his party, comprises a. complete reversal of the changes which brought  about the improved conditions, the inr  excuiable folly of taking any chances  is most apparent. Truly it will be the  part of wisdom not to stop the growing  time.  ASTOUNDING  DISCOVERY.  From Coopersville, Mich., comes  word of a wonderful discovery of a  pleasant tasting liquid that when used  before retiring by any one troubled  with a bad cough always ensures a  good night's rest. "It will soon cure  the cough too," writes Mrs. S. Hiinel-  burger, "for three generations of our  family haye used Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption and never  found its equal for coughs and colds."  It's an unrivaled life-saver when used  for desperate lung diseases. Guaranteed bottles SOc and $1 at Miller Bros.'  drug store.   Trial bottles free.
