Laurier Government Sweeps
the Country From Ocean
to Ocean
Nearly an Even Break in
Ontario—Three Conservatives in B. C-
Last Monday the people of Can a
da pledged renewed confidence in
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and the request
that he be allowed to finish his
work was granted, the Liberal* carrying every province except Ontario
and Manitoba. In this province the
final result is yet unsettled, but the
chances are that the majority of the
members will be in the Liberal column after the 12th. The biggest
surprise of the day was the vote in
Ontario, 38 government members being elected. The Liberals had conceded this yrovince to the Conservatives by a large majority.
In this city a great deal of interest
was taken in the polling. In the
Liberal committee rooms there was
an eager crowd all evening awaiting
the returns. Profound regret was
expressed when it became evident
that Templeman, Mclnnes and Jar-
dine had been defeated. When
it became reasonably certain that
the Laurier government had been
sustained by about fifty members a
huge bonfire was kindled in front of
the committee rooms, and the
city band was called out, and continued to discourse music until long
after midnight.
The following is the complexion
of the next parliament:

British Columbia    2
Ontario  40

Deferred elections: Yale Cariboo,
Kootenay and Comox-Atlin in British Columbia; Prince Albert in Saskatchewan; Cliicoutinii-Siigueiiay in
Quebec, and the Yukon.

Yale-Oariboo Nominees
Last Saturday, at Raven's ball,
Kamloops, Returning Ollicer Mao-
Donald received the nominations of
Candidates for the Yale-Cariboo election. The papers of - Duncan Ross
were first handed in, then came
those of Charles Bunting, Socialist,
and last those of Martin Rurrell. opposition, Mr. Burrell being the only
candidate attending in person. Only
two or three of the public found sufficient interest in the occasion to be
present and at 2 o'clock all was over,
polling to take place on November
H'th. J. D. Swanson, Kamloops, is
agent for Duncan Ross; S. C. Burton, Kamloops, for Martin Burrell,
and John Appelbe, Phoenix, for
Charles Bunting.
Change of Firm
Beginning November 1st, the
drug business which is at present
being carried on by H. E. Woodland will be known as Woodland &
Co., the new member of the firm being W. A. Thrasher. Neither of these
men require an introduction to the
people of Grand Forks, as they have
been favorably known here for years
for their conscientious and reliable
work. Both are honor graduates of
the Ontario College of Pharmacy,
one of the foremost colleges of pharmacy in America. Mr. Woodland
has been engaged in the drug business for seventeen years, and Mr.
Thrasher for twelve years. They
have had wide experience in some
of the largest drug stores in eastern
Canada, and are thoroughly competent pharmacists. The present location of the firm is too cramped for
.the volume of business transacted,
and it is the intention of Messrs.
Woodland and Thrasher to secure
new and more commodious quarters
ae soon as postible and fit them up
in the most modern style. While
the service has been excellent in the
past, it is their intention to make
their store better known than ever
before for promptness, accuracy ami
reliability. We wish the new linn
every success.

BAniiKTT-KiN.\—On Wednesday,
October 28, at 7 o'clock in the morning, in the Catholic church in this
city, Miles Barrett and Miss Katherine Finn, both of this city, were
united in mrriage, Rev. Father
Hartman officiating. Only a few
relatives and friends of the contracting parties witnessed the ceremony,
Miss-Mary Barrett was bridesmaid,
and John R. MoDougal stood up
with the groom. Both the bride
and groom are well known and very
popular in this city. Mr. Barrett is
general foreman at the Granby smelter, having been an employee,of
that institution ever since it commenced to operate in this city.
Mr.' and Mrs. Barrett left on
Wednesday morning's Great Northern train for a short wedding tour to
Spokane and otber points. On their
return they will take up their permanent residence in this city.

Prize of Five-Acre Tract of
. Irrigated Fruit Land
Offered
Chas. Hay returned to the city
last Saturday from Alberta, where
he owns a large ranch, to the cultivation of which he has devoted his
time during the past six mouths.
Spokane, October 29.—With a
reputation for good fruit equal to
any section in the United States,
British Columbia will be strongly
represented at the national apple
show to be held in Spokane December 7 to 12 this year. In fact, she
leads ninny of the states in the number of exhibits which sbe will send.
Over 200 entries will come down
from the Canadian province, including district and individual displays.
The enthusiastic interest shown by
the growers of British Columbia has
decided the board of trustees of the
show to make it an international instead of a national event, which will
be done after this year.
In further recognition of the interest of the Canadians, Manager
H. J. Neely has taken up the matter of the removal of duty on exhibits sent from British Columbia', with
every prospect that his request will
be granted. United States Senator
Piles, of Washington, has interested
himself in the matter, and has officially presented the request to the
secretary of the treasury. , Senator
Piles was successful in leaving the
duty removed on imports from Japan for a somewhat similar occasion
this year, and is confident he will
be successful this time.'
Manager Neely has also addressed
the Hon. Sidney Fisher, secretary
of agriculture at Ottawa, with the
request that he send ollieials of his
department to act as judges at the
national apple show.
Grand Forks, Kelowna and Kamloops are among the districts which
were lirst to respond to the invitation to send exhibits, and others
have been steadily making entries
since. W. H. Covert, of Grand
Forks, will have several exhibits,
and is confident that lie will carry
back with him several prizes. Kelowna has appointed an agent to
collect fruit for display at the show.
A, special prize of live acres of irrigated land Im.-- been offered for the
best exhibit from the East Kootenay
district. Among tho towns
which exhibits will come are:

to place them iu front of tbeir committee rooms in order to catch votes.
Tomorrow night is Hallowe'en,

Victoria, Oct. 28.—The election
today by acclamation of William
Sloan, Liberal, in Comox-Ajtlin came
as a surprise to Conservative headquarters. AVfiile it was admitted
that Sloan's chances of election were
the best ol any Liberal in the province, the Conservatives thought that
his defeat could be secured if a man
sufficiently strong were put in nomination against him. This man was
thought lo be John Houston, a
former Conservative and moro latterly an independent. The Conservative organization was assured
that Houston would contest the scat
as Independent-Conservative, and
for that reason was prepared to lend
him every assistance.
On W{ong Side of Affairs
The Kelowna Courier says: "We
have'nothing but good to say of Mr.
Martin Burrell, the Conservative
candidate for Yale-Cariboo. He is it
man of estimable character and of
mental power, and he would make
a good representative if he was supporting the Liberal cause, but unfortunately he is on the wrong side
of affairs, and Im attractive personality should never deceive electors
into forgetting that be is pledged to
support the party which had eighteen years of power and was weighed
in the balance and found wanting—
eighteen years during which Canada's young men left her in thousands
for the States, when her trade was
stagnant and her national debt
steadily increasing. The thinking
man will ponder these things, and if
he votes according to bis own judgment, and not because bis father
was a Tory ora Orit, he will have no

FRIDAY, OCTBER 30, 1908
An explanation of the causes which
contributed to the sweeping Liberal
victory last .Monday ean be made
very briefly: The people are satisfied with Sir Wilfried^iLaurier's
broad statesmansnip, which means
a larger Canada, and are willing to
give him time to complete his work.
Tbe present prosperous condition of
the country, contrasted with the
period of depression under the Conservative regime, also played an important part in the result. And last,
but not least, the people resented
the wild and groundless eharges of
graft made against the Liberal government by the Tory press and the
Tory politicians. Had there been
any foundation to one-half of these
charges, Canada would not have
a fit country for an honest man to
live in. If the Conservatives had
adopted a comprehensive platform,
and appealed for the votes of the
people on its merits, instead of re-
sorling entirely to slander, they
would have made a much better
showing.
"Good times have' begun already,"
says Sir Thomas Shaughnessy. This
is quite natural, sinee the Liberal
government was returned to power.
But we were not aware that tbe good
times had deserted us since 1896.
Lust summer, when our American
neighbors were transacting business
with clearings-bouse certificates,
money was .plentiful on this side of
ihe line. '''        ?
We are willing to admit that it
may foreshadow political defeat, but
-still it appears to bave been somewhat
unkind of our local contemporary to
place a mouriong border around Martin Burrell's picture in its last  issue
The Liberal government is pledged
to the immediate, construction of the
Hudson Bay railway. Vote for Dan-
can Ross, and endorse tbis enterprise,
which means millions of dollars annually to the farmers of the prairie
provinces.
Attorney General Bowser has
threatened to send secret service men
to the polls in this constituency. Why
did he not put a few of his detectives
on the scent of the Midway murderers!
They were needed in that instance.
In Grand Forks the issue has been
reduced to a question of loyalty to the
eity or loyalty to party tie". We
want a representative in parliament
who will be able to finish our 830,000
postoffice building.
Mr. Bowser appears to have done
effective campaigning for the Liberals
in Ontario. If he bad remained there
another week the government would
have made a clean sweep.
Tiie most effective manner in which
to condemn tbe protective tariff policy
of Mr. Borden and bis colleagues is to
vote for Duncan Ross.
A vote for Duncan Ross is an en-
dorsation of the continuation of the
immigration, settlement and development policy of the government.
Joseph Mat tin, having lost his occupation in this province, can now follow the Hindus to Honduras and
start an agitation for a "white British
Honduras."
I!. H. Bergeron, who has been the
Conservative member for Beauharnois, Quebec, for the past twenty-
five yenrs, and who undertook to
"roast" The Sun when he visited
Grand Forks in company with li. L.,
Borden a year ago, was badly
snowed under last Monday. Our
sphere of influence appears to be extending.
On another page in this issue of
The Sun we print the advertisement
of the department nf public works
calling fur tenders for tbe construction
of a public building nt Vernon, B. C.
The appropriation fur tbis building
was made at tbe same time the grunts
wero made for the Grand Forks and
Greenwood public buildings; and the
twdj, latter would now undoubtedly
have been itdvancud to tbe same stage
as the former if the people bad acted
witli more promptitude and unanimity
in selecting sites for them.
When tbe Hindus get to Honduras
the name of that British colony will
probably be changed to British
Hindusrest.
The indications are that Sir Wilfrid
will remain in power as long as be has
any unfinished work to perform.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been allowed time to finish bis work. Duncan Ross has three unfinished federal
buildings in Yale-Cariboo.
Our old friend, Mr. Bergeron, met
his Waterloo in Quebec Inst Mnnniiy.
This was a moral victory for Tbe Sun.
Iiiiiu'iin Ross will be sent to Ottawa
to help Sir Wilfrid Laurier to finish
tbe Grand Trunk Pacific.
Anyway, it's impossible to defeat
the man who is determined to finish
his work.

RANDOM REMARKS
k Mort Valuable Agent.
The glycerin© employed In Dr. Pierce's
medicines greatly enhances tho medicinal
properties which It extracts from native
medicinal roots and holds in solution
much better than alcohol would. It also
possesses medicinal properties of Its own,
being a valuable demulcent, nutritive,
antiseptic and antfferment. It adds
greatly to the efficacy ofthe Black Cherry-
bark, Bloodroot, Golden Seal root, Stone
root and Queen's root, contained In
"Golden Medical Discovery" in subduing
chronic, or lingering coughs, bronchial,
throat and lung'affections, for all of which
theso agents are recommended by standard medical authorities.
In all cases where there is a wasting
away of flesh, loss of appetite, with weak
stomatfh, as In thc early stages of con-
sumnxipn, there can be no doubt that glycerine/acts as a valuable nutritive and
aids me Golden Seal root. Stone root,
Queenjfl root and Black Chcrrybark in
Sroinuiui?ingestion and building up tho
esh anWsircngth, controlling the cou^h
and brinci/ng about a healthy condition
of tho wliile system. Of course, it must
not be emected to work miracles. It will

stages. It will jjfljfl asm ppyprfij/iMj;

even when accompanied by bleeding from

Prof. Flnley Elltngwood, M. D., of Bennett Med. College, Chicago, says of glycerine:
"In dyspepsia it serves an excellent purposo.
Holding a fixed Quantity of the peroxide uf
hydrogen In KoluLlon.lt is one of the best
manufactured producte of tbe present time in
it* action upon enfeebled, disordered stomachs, especially If there is ulceration or catarrhal gastritis (ciitnrrh.il Inflammation of
Stomach), it is a most efficient preparation.
Glycerine will relievo many cases of pyrosis
(heartburn) and excessive gastric (stomach)
acidity."

purifies tbe Muod curing blotches, pimples,
eruptions, scrofulous swellings and old sores,

Mining at Danville
A report from Danville says that
mining in that camp is looking better than ever before. Several properties are now being operated which
bave been lying idle for a long time.
The Lucile Dreyfus has recently resumed work, and is now shipping
good grade ore to the Northport
smelter at the rate of 30 tons a day.
The Lone Star and Washington,
near Danville, and owned by the
British Columbia Copper company,
are now being tested wilh a diamond
drill, and 90 feet of 826 ore has
beer, cut. On the Knob Hill, heretofore known as Jthe Faithful Surprise, they are driving a 1500-foot
tunnel, and are now in nearly 1000
feet. This property is in high-grade
milling ore. The Knob Hill people
are making arrangements to build a

11110181 the following:
Fluid Extract Dandelion,[one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon,oneouncej
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces.
Shake well in a bottle and take a
teaspoonful dose after each meal and
again ut bedtime.'
The above is considered as thc most
certain prescription ever written to
relieve backache, kidney trouble,
weak bladder, and all forms of urinary difficulties. This mixture acts
promptly on the ehmintttive tissues
of the kidneys, enabling them to
iilttr and strain the uric acid and
other waste matter from the blood
whioh causes rheumatism.
Some persons who stiller with the
afflictions may not feel inclined to
place much confidence in this simple mixture, yet those who have
tried it say the results are simply
surprising, the relief being effected
without the slightest injury to the
the stomach or other organs.
Mix some and give it a trial. It
certainly comes highly recommended. It is the prescription of an eminent authority, whose entire reputation, it is said, was established by it.
A druggist here at home," when
asked, stated that he could either
supply the ingredients or mix the
prescription for our readers, also
recommends it as harmless.

Mining in British Columbia
After John Ashworth, the great
English mining expert, got back to
Winnipeg he had this to saw about
mining in British Columbia: "My
owu opinion is that British Columbia will become in the near future
the great mining centre for British
capital. At all events it should be.
