J  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  :N HOUSTON, in common with all  big frogs in small frog ponds, has an  exaggerated opinion of the importance  of his own croak. And John has much to  justify that opinion, else he would not have  so many followers who believe in him. But  with all his virtue, John has faults. If we  are to believe the Alberni Pioneer News,  some of John's faults are damnable. Much  surprise has been expressed by Conservatives that the deferred election in Comox-  Atlin should have been allowed to go to  Sloan by default. But when the facts are  known, the surprise gives way to disgust,  for it is a simple case of "art, diplomacy,  weakness, and a betrayal," and John Houston is in the mixed-up as a big frog in a  small green pool. Says the Pioneer News:  "If, in all the Dominion there was one constituency with a member who  sought less,  or ob-  /_    i     ___-i    _i - i��������������������������� , tained less for it,   in the past  four years, than  final,    Gentlemen,  we don t  want your  William Sloan got, or tried to get, for Comox-  pap and favors; we  ask  for  that which is   Atlin; and if, with acclaim,   it sent that member  justly ours; give us what rightly belongs to  us and keep the change."  In the face of the biggest bait the government had to offer, lavish promises and  the tremendous advantage that victory  gives, the government lost by overwhelming majorities, and two more strong men  were added to the Opposition. British  Columbia has spoken in no uncertain tones.  She will send five of her strongest men to  Ottawa to secure for her her rights as a  provinee,-==^hey-ape-menH0Qrwho-wHfde-  WHAT a surprise there must have been  at Ottawa when the result of the  deferred elections in Yale-Cariboo  and Kootenay were made known! It was  a most remarkable expression of disapproval of the methods adopted by the government with reference to the holding of  these elections, and a declaration clear and  mand a hearing; not machine politicians  to be bent and giggered about by the man  that handles the whip.  In Yale-Cariboo, at least, the personal  character of the candidates played arrimr  portanTpOT^  We want to be represented in the Dominion  parliament by a man whose sense of propriety and force of habit make an armor  impenetrable by the balls of scandal, whose  friends are relieved of the embarrassing  necessity of putting him to bed with his  boots on. Mr. Burrell made a clean, manly  fight, and his victory, even in Mr. Ross'  home, indicates that the people appreciate  his worth and have confidence in his ability  to serve them well. Mr. Ross and his supporters fought well and lost. The verdict  of the people goes. We shall now saw wood.  back to office, its people ought to be disfranchised.  ' 'The returning officer for Comox-Atlin declared,  in Cumberland, on Wednesday, Oct. 28,1908, that  William Sloan was elected by acclamation. Nominally that was so. Virtually it was a travesty on  the meaning of the word. This constituency was  betrayed into the hands of William Sloan.  "Long before the campaign was formally  opened a strong wave of opposition to the sitting  member was felt in all parts, central and remote,  of this electoral wilderness. It was of great  strength in this important part of the constituency  and it seemed to be even more powerful in Prince  J^.iipert._^Mr.^Sloan^^as^stiiuck^byJt,=,and^so4or--  cibly was he hit that all the nerve with which he  intended to meet the electorate was knocked out  of him. He hadn't even enough courage left  to take a chance before a regularly called Liberal  convention. He started on a quiet tour of his  riding, and, in an artful way, laid plans to escape  -the^arena-where he would -be forced -in to-an-attempt-at-giv-  ing an account of his stewardship. . . . There are two  others, up in Prince Rupert;'who are wanted in the free air  court of pubiic explanation. One of these is Dr. W. J.  Quinlan, the Conservative and Independent nominee, who  funked at Cumberland. The other is John Houston, the  newspaper editor, he of the Prince Rupert Empire, the  journal that boldly boasted, but a few weeks before, a  British Columbia monoply on independence in thought, word  and action. . . . It is too much ���������������������������and the mockery of it  is so sickening-��������������������������� to -recount" the declarations, the promises,  the indictments, the scorchings, the challenges sent forth  by the Prince Rupert Empire. Suffice it to say that the  Opposition met the wishes of that paper .    .   .    Dr. W. J.  Quinlan was nominated, and just as the smell of powder from the musket  of that veteran war horse, John Houston,' was anticipated by those who  had fixed their faith in his sincerity, he laid away his ammunition and  abandoned the fight. . . There is the Empire's word for it that William  Sloan "spent five hours lecturing its editor-on the folly of bull-headed,  independent journalism." . . The Conservative candidate���������������������������he is now  known to be a man of such weaknesses that he should not have been entrusted with the confidence of the party. . . About the only date he kept  was when he arrived in Cumberland in time for nomination. Then he  threw his arms around William Sloan and gave him the election."

C, November 19, 1908  attended by all having the interests of the town at heart. A  public hospital is as essential to  the upbuilding of the town and  the welfare of our people as are  our churches and public schools.  We are doing ourselves a great  injustice when we compel our  people to carry hundreds of dollars away from home each month  or two to pay for treatment that  Enderby as an incorporated city  should in all reason provide.  The sawmill quit cutting for  the season on Saturday, two  weeks later than the closing date  last season. The planers will be  run for some weeks yet. It is  estimated that the company has  ten million feet of lumber piled  in the yard. The A. R. Rogers  lumber camps will be working  full-handed this winter. The  outlook for next season is very  bright, as there is a probability  that the duty on lumber going  into the United States will be removed, which would mean the  opening of an unlimited market  to B. C. lumbermen.  The long-delayed crib-work is  being done on the river bank by  the Dominion government. The  sheds and stables are to be removed from the river bank and  the cribbing extended toward  the bridge. The work is in  charge of N. H. Kenney, which  ensures a good job when completed.  Walter Truesdale spent election  week in Enderby, drawing pictures and things, and disappeared  the   day    after.

Mrs. Carter of Cranbrook, who  has been visiting her daughter,  Mrs. Keith, since early in the  summer, returned to her home  this week.

W. Foley in Youth's Companion.  Improving Prolificacy in Hens  Previous to a  few years  ago a majority of the breeders of standard-bred poultry  paid but little attention to  the   developing    of   utility  qualities in their birds, devoting nearly   all   of their  time and attention to securing the highest scoring birds  possible.    At present a diff-  | erent situation confronts the  | poultry breeder; for, in order  to achieve any considerable  degree of notoriety,  says R.  B. Sando, a poultry expert,  his fowls must now possess  not only "fancy points," but  practical utility qualities as  well.  The making of an egg-  laying strain of fowls is no j  secret.    Its   only drawback j  lies in the fact that   it is;  harder to select the best lay-; p  ers, and at the same time to  keep   the   highest   scoring  birds,  than   it   would be to  work with a single purpose  in view.    Sometimes a good  layer   will   not score high,  | and often a high-scoring bird  | is about the poorest layer in  ; the pen. It has been fre-  iquently demonstrated that  [ there is a great difference in  the laying qualities of individual hens, and improvement-'is more a matter of  individuals than of breeds.  Therefore, if you would bring  | your flock to the highest  point of utility, you must  select your best layers to  breed from. The trap nest  is the only known method by  which the capacity of a hen  can be measured with any  degree of accuracy.  Electric Lights  and Fixtures  Gasolene Engines and Supplies.

C, November 19, 1908  9  Returning Prosperity  A special to the Minneapolis Journal says: "An industrial revival began in the  United States within 24  hours after the election of  William Howard Taft to the  presidency. Evidence of a  restoration of confidence  throughout the business  world in all lines of trade  and industry are apparent in  every section of the country.  Announcements of the resumption of operations, the  hiring of increased working-  forces and extending the  working time in scores of  factories in the east, south  and west, already have been  -i  made. Commercial leaders  in Chicago, St. Louis, New  York, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Detroit, Birmingham  and other cities predict a return of prosperous times in  the country and back up the  predictions with news of  great activity already under  way in manufacturing, in  the building industry, and in  general trade.  "This factory will resume  operations on full-time  schedule tomorrow" was the  notice posted in many factories in different cities of  the nation. In eastern cities  steel mills are increasing  operations. In Rhode Island,  New Jersey,  Maryland and  Range  EEDUOES   THOSE  BAKING   HOURS!

Martin Burrell Appreciation  Grand Forks, Nov. 16.  Editor Walker's Weekly:  Dear Sir: Would you permit  me through the columns of  your paper to thank the  many friends through your  district who gave me such a  splendid support in the recent campaign.  . I realize that the questions of  Japanese immigration and Better  Terms were responsible for the  strong endorsation of the Conservative side, and I also realize  that throughout the great fruit  growing districts I received much  assistance from those who considered that the Horticultural interests of British Columbia had  not had sufficient attention in the  House of Commons.  The task of defeating a Government candidate in the face of  persistent appeals to support  those who had control of the national purse-strings was not easy.  It is intensely gratifying, therefore, to find that the majority of  the people expressed themselves  so strongly for Principle as  against Expediency.  It has not been a personal victory, but I may be pardoned for  thanking most deeply the many  friends who worked so loyally  and unselfishly^^r_m_e_dining_tha=.

To the work of the officers and  members of the various Conservative Associations throughout  Yale-Cariboo the results of the  12th are chiefly due, but I also  recognize that in- this election I  owe not a little to those who despite party ties gave me their  support.  It is impossible for me to answer personally all those who  have so kindly written their congratulations, and I trust they  will be good enough to let me  tell them in this way that I deeply value their good wishes, and  to assure them that if I fail in  the performance of my duty as  their member it will not be for  the want of trying earnestly to  do that duty, both in letter and  spirit.  i am. sir. yours very truly,  MARTIN RURRELL. .11  1  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  IN   THE   CHURCHES  PHURCH OP1 ENGLAND.

The popularity of the loose coat made  with au extremely bias back is responsible for the many unsightly effects such backs often present. Like  many other simple looking models, it  takes a skilled person to bring about  satisfactory results. The coat is not  difficult in itself, but the back seam  is a rock upon which the amateur tailor  is apt to be stranded. A good plan is  to cover a strip of crinoline with the  goods, stitching on both edges bos plait  fashion, then catching it down by baud  on both sides of the seam.  A pretty spring hat is trimmed with  violets, not the big double neapolitan  sort so dear to the makers of cheap artificial ttowers, but the single kind and  of natural size in variety of shades-  white, palest mauve, pinkish mauve,  neapolitan mauve. Kussian mauve aud  the usual violet. A charming idea for  evening wear in the hair is a big chou  of silver tulle  box   plaited,  and  from  Fred. H.

Commenting on the elections last week, the Vancouver Province says: "Martin Burrell is victorious in  Yale-Cariboo with a plurality of almost 800 votes over  Duncan Ross, while A. S.  Goodeve, the Conservative  candidate in Kootenay, buried Smith Curtis, Liberal under an avalanche of votes  that his plurality is now estimated at approximately 925  votes. That the Conservatives should, under the circumstances, have changed  the complexion of these constituencies by such an overwhelming vote is a stunning  blow to Liberalism, and a  matter of great congratulation to the victors. The  echo of the result will, according to the consensus of  opinion, be heard and heeded  in the councils of the Laurier  government at Ottawa,  where was hatched the conspiracy to sand-bag the electors of the two ridings by  deferring the elections without a shadow of legitimate  reason. . . . That the  electors of Yale-Cariboo  proved superior to the thimble���������������������������rigging���������������������������game^demon^  strates once again the old  saw that the people cannot  be fooled all the time."  A DOG once gave a long  chase to a Hare. The  Dog having not long  since made a good meal, was  not at all hungry, and in  consequence in no hurry to  put an end to the sport. He  would at times, as they ran,  snap at the Hare, and at  others lick him with his  tongue. "Pray," cried the  persecuted and bewildered  Hare, "are you a friend or  an enemy? If a friend, why  do you bite me so? and if an  enemy, why caress me?" Ac,ap 12  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  Under the Pines  UNDER THE PINES is the daintiest little magazine published in Canada.
