British Columbia for     *  British Columbians,  ADDRESS OF MR WM  MANSON, TO THE ELECTORS  OP COMOX-ATLIN.  Cumberland, B.C.,  October 25, 1904.  Dear Sir,���������Having been nominated by the  Conservatives of Comox Atlin, I beg to announce myself a eandidate for the above  electoral district to represent you in the  Dominion House of Commons at Ottawa,  and would reepeotfiilly solicit your support,  The time being short it will not be possible for me to see every elector as I would  have liked, and therefore take this method  of informing you  of my candidature and  ' placing my views upon the leading issues of  the campaign briefly before you.  Batter Terms of British. Columbia.  ~ The case of better terms requires no  lengthy treatment herein. This vital question has beeu fully dismissed and presented  before you. Tbe faot that we have contributed over $14,000,000 iu excess of the  amount expended by the Domiuiou Government ia British Columbia,' shows at once  that we have" a case and a very strong case  for adjustment. The cjaima and demands  of this Province, have been repeatedly presented by delegates from . the British Columbia Governmeut, to the Federal Govern  ment at 0 Uwa. The latest proposal on  behalf ot the Province that the whole question should be investigated by a commission  of threa, one appointed by the Provincial  Government, one by the Dominion Government and the third to be selected by the  Colonial Secretary, is one which any Gov-  eminent having regard for the good of our  Province bhould have at once accepted, but  the Liberal Government at'Oltawa declined  to do so, aod iu coWquence have lost, the  confidence of ."the people of British Colum-  -biai|-andTire-deserving-of--eur-strongeBt-pro-:  test au the polls tor having ignored 'the  rights of our Province,  The Railway policy.  .  I am, heartily m accord with the railway  policy of our honored leader, Mr;Kobert L.  Borden, and believe the building _of 'the  'Grand"Trunk Pacific Kaijway should be,  undertaken by the Qover..tment aud when  oompleted owned by the people of Canada,  instead ot the people providing nine-tenths  ot the money and then handing it over to a  railway company, thereby creating auoihir  large corporation to become a menaoe to the  best interests of our people.  The Liberal Government has failed to  provide in the agreement with tbe Grand  Trunk Paoiflo Railway Company, for construction tw being timultaneonsly at tl ���������  eaoc aud west, thus depriving the people of  British Columbia and particularly tboso of  this oonatltuoocy of tho benefits whioh  wi.uld be derived from the expenditure of  suoh a large amount of money duriug the  period of construction, and is worthy of the  condemnation ot tbe eleotors of Comox*  Atlin.  The Liberal Government takes a great  deal of oredit for the prosperity of the Dominion of Canada. They forget that tho  Conservatives laid the foundation many  years ago for the pro perlty which we now  enjoy. Tho national policy list proved to  be the only polioy suitable to Canada, This  bu been demonstrated meat Qonoluiively in  tt)e faot that the Liberal! have uot boen able  to iuaugurate a totter polioy and have made  ��������� failure in carrying out tbat polioy. They  havo not provided adequate measure* of  protection to many industries whioh require  to be assisted in the upbulldlug of a new  oountry. The advautagen of thii polioy to  the farmer is well known. The important*  of the farming industry demands tnat every  i (moderation should be given to all trade  relation* whioh will benefit the farmer aud  thereby assist that Industry, without wbtoh  no oountry oan prober.  Tho maladministration of,tbe Yukon is ������  standing disgrace to Canada. The evidenoe  of so many men of all political stripes, who  have beeu In that section, proves wibiiou  the shadow of a doubt that corruption is  rife, that tho adminatration of sttairs there  it not in tho interests of tbe people but for  the benefit ot friends of tbe Govornmont  and those who are io the ring.

The  hsmiss his  iionruiietus  ine graud duko, General Voranzofl;  aud tho governor of the town, the head 1  merchant, wltb whom had been joined ;  a Dumber of superior ofiicers, had just  passed divers resolutions.  "Gentlemen." said the grand duko,  "you know exactly our situation. I  bave.a Arm hope that we shall be able  to'bold out until Uio arrival of troops  from Iakoutsk. We shall theil know  well how to drive away these barbarous hordes, aud it will uot be my fault  if tbey don't pay dearly for tbls Invasion of Russian territory."  "Your highness knows tbat we can  rely on the whole population of Irkutsk." replied General Vorauzoff.  "Yes," said tbe������grand duke, "and I  render homage to its patriotism. Thank  God, it has uot as yet suffered from the  horrors of an epidemic or a famine, and  I have reason to think it will escape  them. But at tbe ramparts I could not  help admiring their courage...' V-trust  the chief of tbe merchants bears my  words, and I beg him to report them as  such."  "I thank your highness in tbe namo  of the town," answered the chief of the  merchants. "May I dare to ask you  when you expect at latest the arrival  of the army of relief?"  "In six days at most," answered the  grand duke. "A sharp and courageous  emissary has been able to penetrate  into tbe town this morning, and be bas  Informed me tbat 50,000 Russians are  advancing by forced marches under the  orders of General Kissely. Tbey were  two days ago on the banks of tbe Lena,  at Kirensk, and now neither cold nor  snow will prevent their arrival. Fifty  thousand good troops, taking tbe Tartars on the flank, would soon relieve  us.*V  ���������.,  ^"irv^iaTrddi'^said-tbe-chlef-of-the  merchants, "that the .day on which  your highness shall order a> sortie we  shall be ready to execute your orders."  "Very well, sir," answered the grand  duke. "Let us wait until the leading  columns appear on the heights, and we  will crush tho Invaders;"  Then, turning to General Voranzoff,  "We will visit tomorrow," said he, "the  works on tho rlgbt bank. The Angara  will soon'become Icebound, and perhaps the Tartars will bo able to crosa  it."  "Will your highness permit r_e to  make an observation?" Bald the chief  of the merchants.  "Mako It," sir."  "I have seen the temperature fall  many a time to 30 and 40 bolow zero,  and the river has boon filled with float*  ing pieces of ice without being entirely  frozen. This ls owing no doubt to the  rapidity of tho current, If, then, the  Tartars bave no other means of crossing the river, I can assure your highness they cannot possibly cross In that  manner." Tbe governor geueral con*  llrmed this assertion.  "It Is a very fortunate circumstance,"  nnswered tho grand duke. "Nevertheless let us bo prepared for every emergency."  Tbon, turning to tho bead of the police, bo nsked lilm:  "Have you nothing to say to mo?"  "I havo to place before your high*  ness," g.nkl the head of tlio police, "a  pctltlou which has been addressed to  yuu."  "By whom?"  "Hy the exiles of Siberia, who, ns  your highness knows, nre to tho uum*  ber of .11M) In this city."  The political exiles, scattered all over  the province*, had Indeed been concentrated nt Irkutsk from ihe commence*  ment of tlio invasion. They had obeyed the order to rally m the town and  to abandon tbo villages where they exercised dlfforeut profession*. Homo  were doctors, others iit-ni'essnra, either  nt the .Japanese school or ut tho school  ������,f navigation. From tin* hymning the  grand duke, like lhe czar, trusting to  their patriotism, hnd mined them, und  lu* had found In them bravo defenders,  "Whut du the exiles nsk for?" mild  tlio errand duke.

He was au educated and charitable man and at the same time a man  of the greatest courage and patriotism.  When he was not occupied with the  sick, he was engaged in organizing resistance. It was lie who hnd united bis  companions in exile in common action.  The exiles, np to that time scattered  Mnong the population, had borne them-  ���������selves in battle in such a manner as to  (iniw rhe attention of the grand duke, i nne worn out by  lu several sorties tliey bad paid with  their blood their debt to holy Kussia-  holy indeed and.adored by her childreu.  Wasslll Feodor had conducted himself  heroically. Ou; several occasions'his,,  name bad been mentioned .as the bravest* of the brave, but he'had asked neither for graces nor favors, aud when,  the exiles formed a special corps he  had no idea they would choose him as  their leader. When the head of the  police had pronounced that name before the grand duke, the latter replied  that it was not unknown to him.  "Indeed." answered General Vorauzoff, "Wassili Feodor is a man of valor  and courage. His influence over his  companions has always been very  great."  "How long has he been at Irkutsk'*"  asked the grand duke.  "Two years."  "And bis conduct?"  "His conduct," answered the head  of the police, "is that of a man who  submits to tbe special laws under  which he lives."  "General," answered the grand duke,  "have tbe goodness to present binv-immediately."  -���������Tbe-orders- of-the-grand-duke^.w.are_  executed, and a half hour had not passed before Wassili Feodor was introduced Into bis presence.  He was a man some forty years old  or more, tall, witb a sad and severe  countenance. One felt tbat all bis life  was summed up in this ono word,  struggle, and tbat he bad struggled  and suffered all his life. Ills traits reminded one remarkably of those of bis  daughter, Nadia Feodor.  More than auy other thing the Tartar  Invasion had cut him in his dearest affection aud ruined the last hope of  that father, exiled to a distance of  more than 8,000 versts from his native  place. A letter had Informed lilm of  the death of his wife and at tho same  time of the departure of bis daughter,  wbo had obtained, from tho government  permission to rejoin him at Irkutsk.  Nadia had to leave Riga ou the 10th  of July. Tbolnvnslou was on the lfith.  If at that time Nadia had crossed tho  frontier, what had.become of her lu tho  midst of the Invaders? One can conceive how this -unhappy father must  have been devoured with anxiety, sluce  from that time ho had received no  news of his daughter.  Wasslll Fcodor.ln the presence of tho  grand duke bowed aud waited to bo In*  torrognted.  "WnssiJI Feodor," said to him tho  grand duke, "your companions have  ackod to form a picked corps. Do you  know that In thnt *corps thoy must  fight to the last man?"  ���������'They know  It," answered  Feodor.  "They wish you for loader."  "1, your highness?"  "Do you consent to put yourself at  tbelr head?"  "Yes, If the good of RurkIu require*  It."  "Captain Feodor," unit! the grand  duke, "you are no longer nn exile."  "I thank your lilgluu***, But niu I to  eouitimtid those who still nre cullea?"  "They are ho no longer!"  It was ihe pardon of all his companions In exile, ivsw his companions In  anuK, which the brother of tho czar  granted to him!  Wasxlll 1-Vndor pressed with emotion  the hand which the grand (bike held  out to him, nnd he left the room.  Tbo latter turned then toward tho of*  ucei.*.  'TU' c-.'ir will v.<d rrfr/'c to '.i<Wpt  tlie letter of pardon which I am drawing upon lilm," said he, smiling. "Wo  need herooB to defend the capital of  Hlbcrla, and I have just now mado  TttlUlV.  This pardon of tbo exiles of Irkutsk  wiih Indeed an act of wi*o justice and  wine policy.  Night had now come on. Across tho  window* of tlio palace kIioijo the Hies  ��������� l-de-e.'imp appeared  (I the grand duke.*  ���������aid he, "a courier  criArTEiv xvm.  SIMULTANEOUS    movo*  ment    brought    all    the  members, of  the coir.u\]  toward   the   half   opVn  door., A courier from-the  czar arrived at  Irkutsk!  If   the  officers   had   re-  fleered for an instant on the improha-  liility of that fact, they would have certainly considered it impossible.  The grand dake had quickly moved  toward his aid-de-camp.  "That courier!" said be.  A,man entered.    He had the air of  l'ar!gue.   He wore the  Wasslll  costume of a Siberian peasant;, nuu-h  worn, even torn, and on which one  could see bulli't holes A Russian lion-  net covered his head. A sear, badly  healed crossed his face. The man had  evidently" followed a long r.nd trying  route. His shoes and sun-kings, in' a  Iind state, even proved tlmt . lie had.  made part of his journey on foot.  "His highness the grand duk'eV" said  be on entering.  Tlie grand duke went up to him.  "Are you a-courier from the czar?"  be asked him.. '���������'   .. >  "Yes. your highness."  "You come-froia"���������        ;.''': J "'"'���������'?.". ���������  "Moscow."  "You left Moscow"���������  "The loth of July.'*  "You are called"���������''  "Michael Strogoff."  It was Ivan Ogareff.   He had taken  the  name "and  position  of  the  man  whom   he   believed   to  be   powerless.  Neither the grand duko nor any other  poison in Irkutsk knew him.   He had  not even  needed to disguise bis features.   As he had the means of proving  his preteuded  identity,  uo one could  doubt him.    lie came. then, sustained  -L>-y-a-Av41LoLlron,JoJia������t_n_Jjy_n^___i_  and assassination the conclusion of the  drama of the Invasion.  After the answer of Ivan Ogareff the  graud duke made a sign, and all his  olHcers retired.  The fictitious Michael Strogoff aud be  remained alone in the room.  The grand duke looked at Ivan Ogareff  for some seconds aud  with the  greatest nttention.  Then be afeked him:  "You were on the loth of July at  Moscow V"  "Yes. your higbuess, and on tbe night  from the 1-lth to the loth I saw his  majesty the czar at.tho New palace."  "You bave a letter from tbe czar?"  "Here It is."  And Ivan Ogareff banded to the  grand duke the imperial letter, reduced  to dimensions' almost microscopic.  "Was that letter given to you in that  state?" asked the grand duke.     *  "No, your highness, but 1 was com- '  pelled to tear open the envelope In or^  der to bettor eouoeal It from tho Tartar  soldiers."  "Have you, then, boon a. prisoner of  tho Tartars?"  "Yes, your highness, during a few  days." answered Ivan Ogareff. "It Is  on that accouut that, having sot out  from Moscow on tho lutli of July, I  only arrived at Irkutsk ou tbo 2d of  October after a journey of slxty-ulne  dnyti."  The graud duke took tho letter. IIo  unfolded it and recognized the signature of the czar, preceded by tho sacra*  mental formula, written with his own  hand. Ilenco there wits no possible  doubt concerning the authenticity of  that letter nor indeed concerning the  Identity of the courier. If his fierce  look at first Inspired .mistrust, tho  grand duko did nut allow It to be seen,  uml noou tho mistrust disappeared altogether.  The grand duko remained some moment* without spoil king, He wiih rending c-lowly the letter In order to thoroughly gather the kciiho of It.

"Where have the encounters taken  place of which you speak';"'  "At Kalyvan, at Tomsk."  Up to this time Ivan Ogareff had only  told the truth, but with the object of  fighting the defenders of Irkutsk by  exaggerating the advantages obtained  by the troops of the emir, he added:  "And a third time before Krasrioi-  arsk."  "And that last engagement?" asked  the grand duke, whose firmly set lips  scarcely allowed the words to pass.  "It was more than an engagement,,  your 'highness,",;..answered ivan Ogareff; "It was a battle.''  "A battle?"  "Twenty thousand Russians, coming  from the provinces of the frontier aud  from tho government of Tobolsk, came  Iuto collision with a force of a hundred  and fifty thousand Tartars, aud in spite  of their courage they have been annihilated."  "You lie!" cried the grand duke, who  endeavored, but in, vain, to master his  anger.  "I tell the truth, your highness." coolly replied Ivan Ogareff. "1 was present at that battle of Krasnoiarsk, and  it is there where l was made prisoner!"  The grand duke became calm, and by  a sign hecgave Ivan Ogareff to under*  stand that he did not doubt his veracity- ,  . ,. .* ' :':'";"  "On   what  day  did  this  battle ot  Krasnoiarsk take place?" he asked.  ���������; "On the 2d of September."  "And now all the Tartar forces are  concentrated around Irkutsk?"  "All."  "And you would number them at"���������  "Four hundred thousand men!"   ,  A new exaggeration or Ivan Ogareff'  in reckoning the numbers of the 'tartar army and tending always to the  same end!'"  "And I must not expect any succor  from the provinces of the west?" asked tbe grand duke.  "None, your highness���������at least before  the end of winter."  "Very" well. Listen to tbls, Michael  Strdgoff: Should uo relief come to me,  neither from the west nor the east, and  were there 000,000 Tartars, 1 would  not give up Irkutsk!"  The wicked eye of Ivan Ogareff lightly blinked. The traitor seemed to say  that the brother of the czar was reck-  UEinsr without trpnson.  ~Tb������-grand-duke,^a-ner-vpus4eOTppr-.  arnent, had groat difliculty ln preserving his calmuess on learning this disastrous news. He walked up and down  the room under the eyes of Ivau Ogareff, who covered him as a prey reserved for-his vengeance. He stopped  at the windows. He looked otvt'-upon  the Tartar, fires. He 'was trying to  find put the noise,-the greater part of  which was caused-by tl)e grating of the  Ice on .the river. '  , A quarter of an hour passed wlthbut  his putting another question. 'Tlien;'  again taking up the letter, he read a  passage of it and said:  "You know, Michael Strogoff. that  there'Is question In this,letter of a  traitor against whom I havo to be on  my guard?"  "Yes, your highness."  "He Is iitt attiSmptto enter Irkutsk  disguised.to win, ray "confidence; then,  at the proper timo, to deliver up tho  town totbe Tartars." ..  .,  '"I know all that, your highness,, and  I also know that Ivnn Ogareff' has  sworn personal vengeance on the brother of the czar." ,  "Why?" ���������',  "Thoy say that that, ofllcor had been  condemned by the grand duko to a  most humiliating degradation."  "Yes.^ I; teiuember, But he deserved  lt, that wretch, who was afterward to  Borvo against his country and to lead  there an Invasion of barbarians'."  "Ills  majesty the czar," answered  Ivan Ogareff. "rolled especially ou tho  fact tlmt ,vou were aware of the cvltri*  Imil projects of lvuu Ogareff agalust  your person,"  "Yes: tho letter Informed mo of It."  "And his majesty told It to mo himself, whllo warning me to mistrust that  traitor abovo nil during my Journey  across Siberia."  "Havo you ever met hhu?"  "Yes, your highness, after tho battle  of Krasnoiarsk,   Could bo havo suspected that I was the ben ror of a letter addressed to your higbuess and in  which all his projects wore divulged  I should not now bo standlug beforo  you."  "Yos, you would havo beon lost," nnswered tbo graud duke.  "And bow did  you escape?"  "By throwing myself iuto tho Irtish."  "And how did you enter Irkutsk?"  "During o uorue mat warn tuudc ilJiH  very uight to u-pcl a Tunm- deiac-h-  inent I Jolued lu with the defenders ot  tbo town.   I was nblo to mnko myself  known, and they at onco conducted me  before your highness."  "Well done, Michael btrogoa," answered tlio grand duko. "You havo  Bhown courago and zeal during this  difficult mission. 1 shall not forget  you. Have you any favor to ask of  mer  "Nono If It be not that of lighting by  the sido of your bighnuss," answered  Ivnu ogareff.  "Let It bo so, Michael Strogoff. From  this day I attach you to my person,  and you shall be lodged In this palace."  "Aud If la conformity with thc inten  tion which ls attributed to him lvan  Ogareff should present himself before  your highness under a false name"���������  "We would, unmask bim. thanks to  you who know him, and by my order  he should die under the knout. Go." '  Ivan Ogareff gave-the military salute  to" the-grand duke, not forgetting that  he" was captain in the corps of the, couriers of tbe czar, and lie withdrew.  Ivan Ogareff had just now played with,  success his base role. The grand duke's  confidence bad boen accorded bim full  and entire. He could abuse it when  and..; where , he thought proper. He  would even live In that palace. a He  would know all the secrets of the defense? He held, therefore, the situation  in his hand. No one In Irkutsk knew  him. No one could tear off his mask.  Ho resolved, therefore, to begin the  work without more delay.  Ivan Ogareff, having every facility  of seeing, Observing and acting, spent  the next day In visiting the fortifications. Everywhere he was received  with cordial congratulations by the  ofiicers, soldiers and Citizens. This courier of the czar was. like a tie which  bound tbem to the empire. Ivan Ogareff therefore recounted'to them all the  details of-his journey, and this with a  vivacity that was never wanting. Then  adroitly, without at first lusistiug on lt  too much, he spoke of the gravity of  tbe situation, exaggerating, as he had  done while addressing the grand duke,  both the successes of the Tartars and  tbe forces at their disposal. To listen  to him, the succor would be lnsufiicieut  should it. even come, and it was to be  feared that a battle fought under the  walls cf Irkutsk would be as disastrous as the battles of Kalyvan, of  Tomsk and of Krasnoiarsk.  Ivan Ogareff was not at first lavish  ln these sinister insinuations. He took  care tbey should penetrate by degrees  Into the minds of the defenders of Irkutsk. He seemed to answer only when  a great many questions were put to  him and then as though with regret.  In anyn case be added always that It  must defend Itself to the last man, and  they must blow It up rather than surrender lt!  If tbe defenders of Irkutsk could  have, been discouraged. Ivan Ogareff  bad chosen an efficient means. But  the garrison and population of Irkutsk  were too patriotic to allow themselves  to be frightened. Of those soldiers, ot  those citizens, shut up ln nn isolated  -towrn-at-tbe-farthest:e_nd^oXLthe,'^_iat___  world, not one had dreamed of speaking of capitulation. The disdain of  Russia for tbosevbnrbarlans was without limit In any case no oue fop a moment suspected the hateful role which  Ivan Ogareff was playing. No one  could have Imagined tlmt the pretended  courier of the czar was nothing else  than a traitor.

Grease Playa an Important Part In  Their Rich Dishes.  The farther south one goes the  more important part meat seems to  play in the diet. In old Mexico the  people of the upper class have highly  seasoned roasts and steaks and game  three times every day. The roasts  are stuffed with raisins, and a . rich  brown gravy is poured over them.  Grease seems more indispensable to  them than to the fur enveloped Eskimos. There are no broiled steaks,  but in their place one is served with  n half raw piece of tenderloin reeking -with grease and peculiarly flavored  herbs, In that balmy dime, where  the system would be sc much bettor  off-'without av? meats, thousands of  steaks are sold daily nt 45 and 50 cents  a pound. The poorer classes are forced  to abstain from such and live on the'  coarse frijole beans and cold clammy  tortillas, which i.ve thin white corn  cakes made from rye hominy crushed  to a pulp. This forms their unvaried  diet On the aristocrats' tables are. the  most delicious fruits, chiramoyas,  zipotes, mangoes and others which  Americans have never tasted. The  popular aguacate is a cross between  a fruit and a nut. * It is a dark green  and the flesh is about the consistency  of ointment. It grows on a tree of  unparalleled dark green foliage and ia  used often in the place of butter or  is made into a toothsome salad.      ;  Rich soups, with bananas chopped In  them, are served every day, and vegetables dressed with goat's cream are  on their tables. At every meal during  the year they eat the frijole ' beans,  which .have been dipped into a brown  pottery bowl' of boiling lard before  they are brought to the table. The  Mexicans eat enough lard to undermine the digestion of the.stoutest being. Sirup is a great delicacy and  very expensive. It is served as a sort  of dessert in littlo china saucers and  is eaten from spoons. Little bits of  native candies are also served in separate plates.���������Farm and Ranch.  KEROSENE OIL.

G.    McCUISH,  Editor   niid   Proprietor   of   the  dm   Chronicle.  Mor-  In many respects, the editor of the  Morden Chronicle is typical and representative of the breadth of vigor  of western Canadian journalism. He  touches life at many and varying  singles; In the range of his sympathies and interests, and in the Variety of his activities, he is the human counterpart of the "wideflung,  fenceless prairies," in which his  youth and young manhood have been  passed. ... .....".'    J  ���������Mr^IaGuish,Jiko_thf^gWa-Lbulk-of,  western Canadians, hails originally  from .Ontario, .being born near Park-  hill, in April, 1877. Of the older  j)roviiice,������ however, he has no early  personal recollections, for'his parents came west while he was yet an infant, settling near Morden. It was at  the public school of this prosperous  town that Mr. McCJuish received his  elementary education, going from  ���������Ibenco to Manitoba College, Winni-  pcg. From the university, to the  country school teacher's desk is in  Manitoba a natural���������almost an Inevitable���������step, and Mr. McCuish was  gqxt to bo seen as a rural schoolmaster near M'acGrogor. But, as  with many another, ho found that  the" material rewards'���������. held out to  *ho teachers of youth wore not  such as to. tempt him to remain in  ttho profession, And, in any case, ho  had other ambitions, When a school  boy_ in M/jrdcn ho had been an almost daily visitor at tho Chronicle  office, and tlio smell of the news ink  and the attractive variety of newspaper work had marked out for him  >iia career. Ho camo to Wlnnlpog,  nnd secured a position cm tho ropor-  torial staff of tho Tribune. His natural liking for athletics made tho  sporting column his chosen sphere,  and ore long ho was placed in charge  of that department. And, in the  olays of Mr. McCulsh's control, tho  sporting columns of tho Trlbuno, In  racinoss, ln brightness, In Impartiality and in reliability, would  boor comparison with thoso of any  newspaper, anywhere. The fact that  tho Tribune's competitors wore morning pupu'.i gavo thi'iu considerably  lulvnntn.'.yp, slnco most athletic events  ������nme off in ihe nfiornoon or evening,   but thin handicap  Mr.  MeCiiish  1.1     IIIOIM     t Illlll   I'Dllipt'llSlltO  the   iiwiiiiv-r   in    which   hv  IiIh now*, mnl not iiifreiiuent-  iiiri il n  number ������>f iiupnri nnt  nnd    "scoops" on his i'oiii-  Thei'e wns wirli's; rcnil   und  I'l-uT ���������)    nwong nil  >-|;*>rtsiiinn.  its opinions command as much respect as ever. Mr. McCuish is a  strqng party man, a Liberal who is  upright aud downright in his views,  and fearless in uttering and defending them. The Chronicle, in these*  respects, is a faithful reflection of  its editor, being a vigorous and ath-  lethic champion and exponent of  Western Liberalism, and a centre of  influence to the party it supports.  Newspaper men in the West have  been quick to recognize Mr. Mc-  Cuish's ability, and the W. C. P. A.  last year elected him its first vice-  president. In tho local politics of  his district lie is a tower of strength.  Ho is secretary of the Liberal associations for both the provincial iind  federal constituencies, and was the  first president of the Morden Young  Men's Liberal Association, for the  founding of which he was chiefly responsible, He is a ready and convincing platform speaker, and has  done yeoman service for the Liberal  party in recent campaigns.  Though he has been a resident of  Morden only threo years, his fellow  townsmen, at the last municipal  election, returned Mr. McCuish as.  alderman by acclamation���������a striking  tribute to his known public spirit  and personal popularity. His interest in all forms of athletics continues, despite increasing demands  on his time. Mr. McCuish is secretary of the Morden Turf Club, the  leading sporting institution in the  town, and of football, lacrosse and  other games he is a foremost supporter.  Mr. McCuish is unmarried���������as yet.  This,, however,  is understood to be  a fault that time���������a very short time  ���������will   cure.    Recently   reports have  been circulated to theve������Fect that,  in  the middle of  September the editor  oi . the   Chronicle   will   hie   himself  east,  and   that   he   will not return  alone.     Mr.  McCuish   has   been   at  much pains   to   deny ��������� these rumors,  but his very obvious efforts in this  direction    have    only   succeeded   in  giving   them   greater , currency   and  more general belief; In default, of an  admission   of   his   guilt   by the   de-  tendant,   we  feel  somewhat  diffident  about offering' congratulations.   Nevertheless, we.do so, and with the utmost  sincerity and  heartiness,  voicing in  this regard,  we feel assured,  the feeling of Mi\ McCuish's hosts of  personal and professional" friends.   If  ���������Mr. McCuish still persists that;,these  congratulations: ::are    misplaced,    we  -twist���������tha-l^ho^vili-rj^^  do not believe we will ever have to  pay express charges on the returned  parcel.  SKIN TREATMENT.  A DANGER TO BABY.  Doctors have preached against the  so-called soothing medicines for  years, but they are still used altogether too much. The fact that thoy  put children to sleep is no sign that  they are helpful. Ask your doctor  and .he. will tell you that you havo  merely drugged your little one into  insensibility ��������� that soothing medicines are. dangerous. If your little  one needs a medicine give it Baby's  Own Tablets, and you give it a medicine guaranteed to contain no opiate or harmful drug. You can give  these Tablets just as safely to a new  born infant as to the well grown  child, and they will cure all tlio  minor ills of childhood. Mrs. J". M,  Gilpin, Uellhaven, Out., says: "Since  1 gave my little one Baby's Own  Tablets there has been a marvellous  change in her appearance, and she is  growing splendidly. You may count  me always a. friend to the Tablets."  Ask your druggist for this medicine,  or send 25 cents to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.,  and get a box by1 mail post paid.

A hunter in South Africa tells the  following story of an adventure with a  buffalo: "I was In the act of descending the bank when Prlnsloo, a Dutch  hunter, who was lower down the slope,  saw the dark outline of the buffslo  standing at bay behind tie screen of  reeds. Next instant, seeing it about to  charge, he shouted, 'Daar kom bij!*  (There he comes!') and fired, rather at  random. I am afraid. T������ien, rushing  down the path by which he bad advanced, he throw himself headlong into t-.-'roods on the left. This all happened in a fow moments, but I had  suflicient time to raise my rlilo to my  shoulder and fire as the enraged bull  rushed straight at me*, through the  reeds, with nose thrown forward,and  horns back. As I fired I endeavored to  jump aside to escape the charge, but  my feet got entangled in the matted  grass, and 1 fell on my back, luckily,  however, retaining my hold on the  stock of my rifle. My first shot seemed to check him for a moment, but the  next he was rushing up the siope at  me. I shall never forget the look in  his fierce eyes. It was but a'moment's  work to-draw back the bolt of my  Mauser and to close it again, thus  pushing anothor cartridge into the  breech. I had no time to raise the  rifle to my shoulder. The-? was barely  time, just before he was within striking .,distance, to pull the trigger, with  the stock under my armpit, while I  lay on my back on tho top of the sloping ground. Without so much as a  groan he fell in iiis tracks and rolled  over into the muddy water two yards  below with a great splash, shot through  the brain."'

TWO POPULAR MEN.  tint  Joe   0111:10:1   Is   "Store   Beautiful  Thnn .folia  Suurp Williams.  Every member on both sides of tlie  house likes John Williams. To analyze h"..-j popularity is not so easy.- But  it can be safely said that it is uot his  beauty which first attracts one, for  his pulchritude i.s of the singed cat  variety. Indeed I do not think him so  beautiful as Uncle Joe. On this point  there would hardly be enough dissenters in the house to demand tbe yeas  and nays. Uncle Joe has a ruddy  complexion that matches well with  pink carnations, now universally recognized as the insignia of Republican  leadership. John is somewhat swarthy  and has u sort of compromise complexion, but it is healthy and natural. He  has never used any s;'.;in food or dono  any grafting. Uncle Joe has also  a sort of cocky look, as if he knew  he would get his hay all in before It  rained, putting lis thumbs in the arm-  boles of his vest aad ofttimes tipping  his cigar up a few degrees from 'the  plane of his orbit just to emphasize the  security of American institutions. -J  John has a fiercer mien, is somewhat  more combative in appearance, holds  one bund to his ear (for he Is slightly  deaf), and in tho heat of debate his  hair seems to rise up and cry for liberty. IIo has a sort of lean and hungry look, as if it wero always just beforo dinner, while Uncle Joe wears on  all occasions a' postprandial aspect,  suggestive of that peace and plenty  which comports well with certain.  planks in his party platform. John  misuses tobacco a little'now and then,  and Uncle Joe has boen known to use  cigar ashes to keep the moth3 out of  his clothes. There aro, in truth, "some  points about these two men as like as  their family hailing ports in old Caror  Una. And. though fastidious critic?  may assert that tho line of beauty  never, touched either one of them, stll|  they both look good to me.���������J. Adnn������:j  Bede in Leslie's Monthly.

Transient Ads Cash in Advance.  The thinking men of Canada re*  alij&e that the coming election will  be the most important held in Canada since the country was federated  The question now is, who will own  our Traneponeinental Railway after  it is built? Wil! the electors vote  to build the railway with their  money aud to give it to the score of  speculators who are furnishing  money for election funds, or will  the people of Canada vote to own  the railroad after it is built, and  use it to regulate freight and passenger rates all over Canada? The  policy of the Conservative! party is  the proposal to build the road, and  hold on to it after it is built, and if  they do not care to go in for Government operation of the road they  will lease it to a private company,  with the provision, however, that  they are to have something to say  with regard to the freight rates.  The Government control of the  freight rates would solve one of the  greatest problems the western farmer has to contend with, and while  it would0, no doubt result in the  railways making less money, it  would be a great thing for the  wheat growers and ranchmen of the  "West. NolfonHir then tlmt, Con^  servatives and Liberals alike are  going to support Mr Borden's policy. It has been said that the  Laurier Government has appiinied  politicians instead of railway men to  build the national part of the railway. ., It is all very well to send  ' politicians to look after politics, but  it is a shameless, farce to pay a lot  of party worker s to take care of tbe  country's interests in so important  and costly an enterprise as the  building of the Grand Trunk Pacific. Abundant proof of the necessity for a change has long been  evident, without referring even to  the Lord Dundonald or Col Gregory  incident. We hardly like to cry  treason and treachery, but theie  are a few things that have had that  appearanpe. The refusal of tbe Government to accept Mr JBordtn'B pro-  posed improvements to tbo Audit  Act shows that the ministers are  adverse to placing barriers between  thcrasBlves and the public Ueaaury,  The amendment did not in any xvay  attack the right of the Goveriunont  to make a necessary expenditure,  but sought to strengthen the Act so  ns to make it suro that publio  moneys would be expended exactly  as Parliament had decreet! by im  supply bill. The Govern mont refused to accept the a mood mont be*  oause it was afraid of a moro search  ing examination of its accounts  The best interests of our fair Dominion, its honour, and tho safety  of its society requires tho guiding  hand of an administration superior  to that now in powor at Ottawa.  Let us reject a Government aspiring  to hi'ni> dn������i^n������ ond fhnl f-trm cf  loyalty which pervades hue lautU-r  administration. There is ability  enough in Canada to form a Government of which we should not bo  ashamed. Lot uh unite and by asserting our righ h we will reject men  like Sir Wilfrid Lanrior, and otip-h  the spiJit of dMoyulty inspirwd by  h m beforp it become* a mnmic������ In  our freedom and a danger to our  country. 1 mi shun upjn the fait  name uf Canada was somewhat removed by the demonstrations in  favour of Lord Dundonald. It  showed him. that although the Gov  eminent might say to him "go,"  the people said u stay;?' and it must  also show every thoughtful man  that when the proper time comes  the people will eay "go" to the  Government.  The Laurier Government is on  record on the question of employing  Mongolian labor on railways subsidized from the taxeB of the people  of Canada. In committee on the  Grand Trunk Pacific Bill. Mr Bennett who accompanied Mr Borden  to British Columbia in 1902, and  saw what conditions were, in this  Province, moved an amendment  debarring Chinese from labor on  the Western section of the railway.  Mr Bennett was supported by Mr  McPherson of Vancouver, but Mr  McPherson was not supported by  tbe party in whose interests he was  elected to parliament. He suggested  that tbe amendment be made to apply to Japanese as well as Chinese,  That Amendment was supported  By thb EjmBE Conservative Opposition in tke House of Commons  and was voted down by a solid  vote of the liberal party now in  control of Parliament. Mr McPherson was the only Liberal who  raised his voice in support ofthe  amendment.  The Conservative party stands for  the retention of Canada as a white  man's country, and has mnde a  party question of it.      c  '   'Wim'HW        "������' H'< ��������� i ��������� mmm--mmmm  We have the very best reason for  believing that the , Grand Trunk  Pac,fie Railway Co., have no. intention in. the world of commencing  construction at the Pacific end of  Ahe-line,_unlessamrbstantial.Bubsidy,  is gi anted by the Province to that  end. '.. ���������* ���������  "The coiidisions in the Yukon  country under the Laurier.ad ministration are such that if the Liberals  are relumed to power that the Yukon will be known as a district  where dishonest, corrupt and disreputable conditii ns exist; where  abuses and corruption is encouraged  and persons dare not speak their  mind against these methods as the  possibility of doing business depends on other silence.''  If thi^ Biber^l ;V6ters wish to carry  Canada they rau'vt separate themselves from the um-avory Sullivan  species of workers and condemn the  conduct of those wbo organized and  carried out the Sault Sta, Maris  election offences.  LETTER TO THE EDITOR.  BPITOU CUMHKULANU NEWS.  Sir:-  Not so lon_ ago Liberals were as  scarce as dead mules in Comox, Jn fact  they were practically dead until the  breath ofthe mighty Mclnnes blew upon  their dry bones and raised up nn exceed,  ing great army, Uut that Rnleib over  now, and people in their sober senses  aro realbntf all that it amounted to.  Ubernl promises have always been liber.  al, but performances are otherwise.  They promised us a decent mail service  and we know what they have given us,  Thoy promised us free frncle, and we  have got Geo. Roe, And all of us know  the condition of the lumber market as a  result of their admission of the American  product free into the Northwest, where  also they have wasted public money by  thc importation of freak Russians. So*  as their rule ha* boon nn imnmvomcnt on  Con������rvative ndmitmtminn, let ������s t-djc  ,x look al the lo-al candidates, and both  being V\illlims and both outsiders, wc  will avoid offence by taking them alphabetically.  Fifteen years ago Manson worked for  Mr Holmes and although the latter gentleman is probably opposed to him pi,.  Iitically, yet he was heard to remark ihe  other d.ty that Manson was the best man  liu ever had, and that it w-miU have beca  well for him if he could have kept lum.  It is Manson'* nature to be thorough and  to put hn beau into his work, and it  speaks wttil for him that by sheer merit,  and witnout either money or influenre, he  has won his way so quickly into the con.  fidence of his fellow townsmen. So much  for the one Candidate, The other is a  bankrupt Nanaimo merchant who by one  ot the baldest pieces of luck ever known  in the Province, was drngged into a fortune. And how has he served hi-> (own?  By building himself a palace at one end  of it. Now before a man aspires to the  highest office in the gift of the people he  should surelv have shown his fitness for  it by signal ability in sonic lower capacity. But, unless over his own counter,  Sloan has never served the puhlic in  any way, not even as an alderman. Man-  son, in spite of his youth, has a record of  good honest public work behind him*  Sloan has- -nothiag bat dollars.  D.  Mayor Manson arrived here Sunday, and was accorded a splendid  reception. Want of space prevents  more than a passing mention of the  meeting held last night, or of his  speech, which was listened to with  the greatest interest b v the audience  He speaks at Courtenay to -night..

Hicks and Miss Huzzy  at Giace Methodist Chinch on  Tuesday evening last. It was  rather a poor mark of appreciation  which the interior of the church  presented, the audience was small  instead of attracting an attendance  "tii a t^ould"have'fFxed~f he" 'seTuinjf  capacity of the edifice. True  musicianship" and hope that the  efforts of professional singers and  musicians would at least be awarded with some kind of a duo appreciation from tbe public in recognition of the eneigy and timeexpenu  ed in uplifting,; the musical art of  the town, are deserving of symputhy  as well as commendation Miss  Huzzy opened the concert with an  overture on the vocal ion lending a  beautiful instrumental tone and  shading to the sehction. As an accompanist few city performeis can  I oast of the accomplishment possessed by this young lady, for shading  atid technique all song accompaniments and solo work were perfect  gems. "Evening and Morning"  is worthy of special mention and  was dainty and yet full of pathos.  Her closing number "Mendelssohn's  Wedding March" was played in a  thoioughly artistic manner. Men*  delssohn is more familiar to the  average person than the average  person is aware. His works on  modern bymnology has had a  wonderful influence; indeed, mott  of thu hymns sung theeo days are  peculiarly Mendolssoh. i in in char-  aoior. The composer stands as the  greatest exponent of the purest development. It iw sufficient to ray  that Miss Htmoy's work w������������h only  too limited and difMinetivoly np*.  pealed lo thoapprcciativoand more  musically ambitious of theaudience.  Mr Wm. Hicks sang in a manner  as he has never before. His voice  was wholly oaptivating. He exam*  pliflod the faculty, as only tho be*t  flinpnrfl can*, of holding Mintiunwd  interest ihronghotu. The rmtplc of  his second encore song was short,  crisp and exceedingly oa chy, Mr  Napier, wbo is always a favorite,  was also in splendid voice, His  songs bolng sung with a woalth of  At   Weinrobefs  A FULL LINE OP���������'  Cravenettes,  of latest   up-to-date   patterns.  .-.. ,    ,'. ������������������ ,   '���������     ��������� ���������' .-        THEY MUST GO.
