PRICE FIVE CENTS
LIBERALS ONCE MORE WIN
General Elections Result in Conservatives Being Badly   Beaten
and Their Leader, Mr, R. L Borden, Meets Defeat
at Halifax
Ralph ■Smith is Returned in Nanaimo Constituency by a Ma^
jority of More Than Three Hundred Over
MR Wolley   ^:
The Laurier government made a
clean sweep ol the country, not only
keeping their lead but increasing
thcir majority in the house. The Conservatives did not make the gains
expected in Quebec, and in Nova
Scotia us far as returns have been
received, did not win a single seat.
In British Columbia, too, all lour ol
the contitituencics where elections
were held returned Literals. From
the very imperfect returns yet at
baud, it appears as if the elections lo,
far have resulted in 115 Literals to
•III Conservatives, which indicates
plainly that the majority of the Liberals will be very large. In Nanainio constituency Mr. Smith is elected with over Hull majority with a
lew places yet to bear Irom tihat cannot have much ctfect onHhc result.
Thc vole in Vancouver was the
largest ever pulled Iterc. It stood:
Mucpterson, Lib., 2,It'll; Kills, Con.,
2,002; Mortimer, Socialist, 718;
McClcor, Independent Lib., -III. Total
of !i,78:i votes was polled.
In Victoria the election llgures
were: Riley, Lib., 1,11110; Prior, Con,
.1,102; Walters, Socialist; ,130.
An Eastern estimate recoiyed by
telegraph,' places the figures at 13:1
Liberals to 71 Conservative;, driving

ber by a very handsome, majority in
spile of the able fight put up by Mb
Conservatives and Socialists. In
Ladysmitli as many lexpccbed, tho Socialists led tlie poll, but at Nanaimo
and the lower parts ol the constituency Mr. Smith had majorities
with very few exceptions. As the returns began coining iu last night the
crowds around the committee rooms
gathered, and until nearly ten o'clocl
when the results ol the elections
throughout tlic country were no longer 'in doubt, tlicy eagerly awaited
the news that* came over the wires
by telephone nnd telegraph. It was
' a voT" .good niifurcd throng, the defeated parties gnml hiiniorcdly answering Hie chaff thrown at them by
tbe successful Liberals.

polk Mirsky's disgrace because of bis
literal tendencies. The Minister's
health is improving.

WHAT IS ALLOWED.
London, Nov. 4.— Foreign Secretary Lansdowne in a letter dated
Nov. 3, has informed a British ship
owning linn that, "It is not per-
missablc lor British owners to charter their vessels for the purpose of
following the Russian fleet with
coal." Tbe letter was in reply to
a direct ijucry from the firm which
drew the attention of the foreign
ollice to the Hiilisb collier Roddant
which was then lying at Vigo waiting the arrival of lite Russian squadron and nrdicd if the British owners were entitled to charter their
vessels for this purpose.
NO LOOTING.
A dispatch to the Loudon Daily
Mail says: In view of the false re-,
ports that havo reached home regard
ing looting in Thibet, it is only lair
to state that the strictest discipline
has teen maintained, and thc troops
have shown extraordinary  restraint.
Tho largo quantities of Thibetan
curios sent to India have either been
purchased by officers or nrc legitim-
froin thc enemy's abandoned camps
at Kara and Karola, and onrt from
ate spoils ol war. Part was taken
Maui Tse-cban monasteries which
were strongly held by the Thibetans
and wore entered by our troops after
hard fighting. Most of the valuable
and interesting articles at Gyangtsc
Jong were reserved lor the government, but inumcrable small images
were divided among thc officers by a
court appointed to decide the question.
The great Pankbor Choldc monastery was lelt Intact, though wc warn
ed the Thibetans   that no buildings
STUDENTS
RIOTING
Innsbruck, Austria, Nov. 4.— Thc
rising of the students at the university here became so serious during
the night that troops with fixed bayonets, marched into the midst ol thc
Gorman dciuoiisliralors at 2 o'clock
ihis morning. The latter were besieging and wrecking the hotels occupied by the Italians.. An artise
was killed by a bayonet thrust
through llie heart and many persons
were wounded. Thc building occupied by the Italian taculty of the
university was wrecked.

HARD TO KEEP WARM.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 4.—While no
formal reply will be made to the Jap
ancse protest regarding the use of
Chinese clothes by the Russians, it
is understood that foreign minister
Lamsilorfl, when the protest was presented, informally denied ♦„ charge
that there had been a violation ot
the Geneva convention. He explained that there might have been some
isolated cases where soldiers whose
winter overcoats had not arrived,
bad donned Chinese overcoats, but
not lor the purpose claimed.
used for military purposes would be
spared.
No enemy has been treated with
such leniency as. the Thibetans. Except at Gyangtsc, all produce taken
on thc road was paid lor, and compensation was given to the villagers
for damage done to the crops.
No doubt there were a lew cases
nl individual looting during and al.
ter the protracted operations at
Gyangtsc, but the pertclrators when
discovered were severely dealt with.
At Nigartsc two Sepoys were sentenced to tivo years' imprisonment
lor attempting to rob a monastery,
and another who took the earrings
Irom a native ol the country was
severely flogged.
Attended Political Meeting at
Nanainio After Breaking
Out of Jail
Tells How He Came to Take
Clothes and lea ye Lady
smith
The lockup again holds as an   unwilling guest the man McGregor who
took French leave through the bars
on Halloween.   He returned in company with Provincial Constable Cas-
sidy from Vancouver last night and
tells a very interesting story ol his
exploits from bis point ol view.   He
maintains that he never intended to
steal the clothes that stuck to   him
when    he    left the vicinity ol the
Wheatshcal.  He lay down in a barn
and was cold, so he rose and found
the clothes handy and wrapped them
round him.   Then he was irightened
out oi the barn by a person coming
in with a lantern and the clothes incidentally accompanied him on    the
road down here, including some blankets that Mr. R. Hughes identifies
as his.    Then alter being locked up,
a couple of good fairies disguised as
hunters approached and spread    the
bars     for Mr. McGregor to escape.
The mark of the stove poker on the
wood work inside to force the window up, however, does not quite tally
with this.      Then he proceeded    to
Clieniainus, but tearing pursuit, doubled back to Nanaimo, which lie reached on Tuesday morning and being a
good   politician, he attended      Sir
Charles    Hibbert    Tupper's address
there on Tuesday evening.   Had Mr.
Cassidy been properly interested   in
the political issues of the day     he
would     have come across Mr. McGregor sooner, for the latter    remarked that he had expected to come
across Mr. Cassidy at the meeting.
To this Mr. Cassidy responded that
had he known ol McGregor going he
certainly would have attended. However,     McGregor next boarded the
Joan on Wednesday lor Vancouver,
and was locked up by the crew   lor
stowing away and was handed over
lo the police.  That was how he was
recognized and the reason lor his return to the Ladysmith lockup.
He was brought before Mr. lb m-
son today and remanded.

on the subject.
THE ELECTION'S.
The old saying that there is nolh-.
ing certain about a horse race or an
election lias again been proved by
the result of the vote throughput
Canada yesterday. Both sides were
very confident of success, but it was
hardly to be supposed that the Liberals would have won a very derisive victory, for it was gcn.iv.illy admitted that the majority, 'whichever
party was returned to power, woii'd
be fairly narrow. Of course one party press claimed that the other side
would be swamped out of existence,
but that was mil llie sober thought
of'the thinking man. The true cause
ol the return nf the Laarler government to power probably lies in the
fact tbat prosperous times always
light for the parly in oOiee, who, like
the man who has hail a good dinner
and feels content, the people in
the heyday of prosperity arc
more good nalurcd anil tolerant
and Ins liable lo complain than when
they feel the pinch of hard times.
Then, loo, the verdict must be considered one in favor of (he Grand
Trunk Pacific, for that was one of
Ihe chief issues fought out during the
campaign. In Victoria the Conservative defeat was a foregone conclusion
due to the breach iu llie Conservative party that has' never been healed since the last provincial election
and in Vancouver it was all along
evident thai the candidate was not
strong enough In cope with Mr. Mac-
phcrson. The mehibers of the Conservative parly have themselves to
thank for their candidates in these
two constituencies not making a belter show. The defeat of the leader,
Mr. Borden, iu Halifax, is no doubt
a surprise to bis party and a somewhat disheartening blpw.'iu Nanaimo constituency theic was a great
ileal of speculation as fo the outcome of the triangular fight, tint
Mr. Smith has lieen returned by a
handsome majority that proves the
conliileiKC of bis friends was justified. However, now the battle is, over
flic,country will settle down lo Jiusi-
ness again and proceed on llie oven
tenor of its way.
NEW INSECT PEST CURE.
The attention of thc provincial department, of agriculture is respectfully called; lo a new cull that lias arisen iu tliu stale of New York. It is
'.omelhing novel to have religion applied lo ridding the country of pests,
hut lhc people who hnvc adopted
these new tenets claim that applying
tlie power of right thinking strongly
enough will banish any evil. This is
of course, somewhat alter, the theory

A SOLITARY
HONEYMOON
Accompanied by bis bride iu spirit

despatch, He is doing it by spending large amounts, of money on
champagne and automobile rides ami
scattering hills among the employees
of a local hotel.
It was about I) o'clock when there
came' the toot ol an automobile, and
Mr. Forest, leaped out from the machine.
They started for the register. He
entered and he did not slop to take
off his gloves, but spread, "Mr. and
Mrs. J. II. Forest" all over the register.
"Wife in the ladies' parlor, I
guess?" '.said the clerk.
" No, not with mc. Only in spirit. On my honeymoon. But she
couldn't come and wc are playing
just as if she was."
The clerk gave him a suite on thc
parlur door. Two bellboys picked
up his belongings and the three wore
gone. Evidently the bridegroom believed in distributing his money, lor
there was a dollar in the pocket ot
each ol the bellboys when be left.
Two minutes later a waiter from the
bullet was summoned.
"Might open a small bottle," suggested the ",one bridegroom." The
waller disappeared and returned a
few minutes later.
"Send flic best machine around to
the entrance?" requested Mr. Forest
"1 want to look at the town."
He returned at noon. The ride had
cost him trio, lie was iu a gracious
mood in thc afternoon.
"You see, it was like, this," he began, after extracting another cork,
"I used to he a professional escort.
My busincsii was to look alter the
comfort of ladies at so much an hour.
One of my clients—that's what wc

Mr. Forest was silent a moment.
"Well, the updiol of il was Unit

There was another silence and another empty bottle.
"She suggested that wc travel to

I-Inll in jest and hall in earnest,
a United States writer has'set himself the task of advocating a Chair
of. Courtship nnd Matrimony in all

Nature has already endowed them
with great powers in that direction
—but "to aid them in thc far less
understood and vastly more important matter ol selection." Of such
education he is convinced that there
is no class ol women more in need
than those who have embraced "the
higher education." How does he
propose to con'or this ,atrimonial
knowledge? First, there shall lie a
Professotr' ol Courtship and Matrimony, a woman ol "maturo years,
high native intelligence, abd great
social experience." She must have
been courted and married, and il
possible also undergone thc experience ol divorce. "It shall be her
duty lo lecture three times a week
on thc perils ol modern society, and
to illustrate her discourse, whenever
possible, by placing on thc platform
specimens ol the different types of
men . that a young girl may expect to
encounter when she leaves rcollego and
begin to tako up tlie serious duties
of life."
One ot tbe first lessons to be
taught is that in order to make a
really good match "it is necessary
to wed cither a pauper or a multimillionaire." Girls are to avoid a
man with only a small income, lor
he will be Inclined towards laziness..
' They must also be cautious about
the millionaire. "II you wish to
make a really brilliant match, seek
out some promising pauper who is
congenial to yo't, and bestow your
alTectiotis upon him. He will work
bard in order to win you, and, having thus formed the habit ol work,
will continue it for the sake of providing you with the best that he
can. 'IDpn't accept a man at thcir
own valuation, is another maxim to

The Smithsonian institution, while
making inquiries into the cheapest
forms ot producing light, experimented with Cuban fireflies, among other
things. The insects were placed in

tbe most delicate instrument in the
government observatory was employed to measure the amount ol heat la-

A sperm caudle wain used for comparison, and a llanic spot Irom il
which was just as big as the firefly
was thrown into the mirror. Tho instrument recorded the heat from the
candle at once, but no movement was
caused by the insect, although the
instrument was so delicate that, had

adopted hy (be Admiralty that during the recent, manoeuvres not a single ship unde stood or obeyed the
