 ^r^nvj.  DAILY  MONDAY, AUG. 20, 1906.  FRICC FIVE CENTS  t  \  NICOM HERALD  SM THINGS ABOUT  ASHCROFf JOURNAL  SHIPPING  NOTES OF THE  WATERFRONT  \  In its edition of a week ago, the  Ashcroft 'Journal, published at Ash-  ' cioft, B.C., .announces that there  wcic rumors to the effect thai./Rich-  aid A. Frusei', pubjjshor of,the Nicola Herald,    was  to be a   Consciva-  > tivc candidate for his distnet in JNi-  cola. The Journal then goes on to  "roast"    Mr. Frascr, and insinuates  ��������� that it is up to  the lattei   gentle-  > man to deny the rumoi. Mr. Fia-  ser is atf present on the Island on  business, having passed through  I.a-  \ dysmith this mornings. Asked if ho  intended to enter _the field as a candidate, Mr. Fraser ncithcL denied  'nor admitted the rumor, hut left the  interviewer under -, the impression  that such is his intention.  In the last istaic' of the f Nicola  Herald, Mr. Fraser has the following to say ' regarding"- the Journal  and;its editor.  "The wish is evidently the father  to the thought, to the editor of the  boiler plate paper known as the Ash-  ��������� croft Journal. Else why his almost  paternal anxiety on. behalf "of the editor of The Nicola TTerald to deny  certain rumois. Is the cditoi of the  Journal in confidence of the Conservative party .it.Ashcroft as well as  other parts of the distiict, and does  he voice theii sentiments, oi is i.l  that he has1 an eye to the house ol  parliament himself, or^ perhaps he  trembles for the safety of the seal  of the present membei' Any" oi all  of the abo .' conjectures might, be  equally true ot the man "who so severely (?)' stiaddles the fence and  calls'his boiler plate paper the ,,non  party press." l Were the Ashcroft  Journal representative \ of aiTy political party,' or could word its ic-  quest in a courteous thanner, we  might have satisfied his curosity but  most ceitainlv decline" to satisfv hun.  when he allows his personal bias  and spleen to show as it does-in his  t articles."

A scrappy couple is apt to find  that court calls follow courtship.  You never hear a bald-beaded man  talking about his, football days.  Money buys a lot of r"ic names  for man's mean qualities'.-.
