Beyond the most sanguine expectations of their friends, Martin Burrell  and A. S.

If  there had ever existed any doubt as to  ability on the pare of the Returning  Officers to fulfil the requirements ofjthe  election act in the matter of posting  proclamations and distributing ballot-  boxes between the cLites set for nomination and election, that doubt was  removed when the ridings of Chicou-  timi.-Saguenny and Gaspe in the  province of Quebec held the nominations five days earlier than the other  nominations. ���������  Immediately after the general elections on Oct. 26th, in which the Laurier Government was sustained tlie  old argument was put forward that it  was useless to have a representative  who was not supporting the party in  power. y  That argument first elected Duncan  Ross in Yale-Cariboo in 1904, but the  trick was tried once top often, for  this time the electors'were disposed to  resent this interference with their right  to have a say along with other electors  in choosing it government for Canada.  ���������������������������'* Four years ago Duncan Ross also  had the assistance of a powerful corporation operatingin the constituency,  the railway contracting firm of  Stewart and Welsh, which circumstance won for him the nick-name*  "member for. Pat Welsh".  This time again  this influence was  exerted   in his behalf and   carried  to  Hedley  -IS 03  Granite Creek  4 2  Princeton  61 31  Aspen Grove .-. 6 17  West Bank     5 11  Kuall     5 11  Tappen  (i l'j  Canoe Creek  11 10  Ivanhoe Mine  1 0  Grand Prairie  29 11  Sa vonas  17 19  Penney's  5 4  Qnesnel Forks  S '.7  Shuswap  15 11  Mara  11 12  Enderby  98 72  Nicola  28 10  Dot  3 9  Eholt  33 9  Ashcroft  43 39  Notch Hill  IS 25  Ducks '.

We  regret that'we have not the cuts to  reproduce with the article.  j The stamp-mill of the-Daly 'Redact-'  1 ion Company, Ltd., at Hedley B. C,  is, perhaps the only large plant today  in which the ore is weighed immediately behind the batteries. In this  mill T determined to-carry out certain  ideas, long entertained, regarding the  proper point at which scales should be  located to ohtaiu best results in all-de-  uiaterial  i,-  to   be   weighed, but the"  (    ��������� ,   1   >        ' ���������    '  , ���������'.  ��������� j-  ,     !���������>���������    f   , -  'cost andrtime lcuuired for installing  caused t,ie u-e 01 a hopper-scales Icar  ruiiiiiUi- iiV?-?''!i''ir.H';i<' \  lpon  ,S!l'i  11  (Mil,  consideration. When head-samples  are taken at the feeders and the ore is  weighed at any point between the  mine and the. breakers it is impossible  toaniveatan accurate valuation of  the ore being milled, for the ore that  is weighed to day will not reach the  feeders until to morrow, or the day  after, or even next month, occording  to the size'of the" ba'tteVybins. There-  fore, any given sample fails to represent a known weight of ore, and all  calculations regarding the value of the  ore going to the stamps, tlie concen-  tra tors and the vats are mere guesswork. .  To be sure, in the case of a cyanide,  plant, following stamps or concentrators, this daily gness may, in the  ���������long run, hit sufficiently close to true  weights to satisfy those that attach  little importance to accuracy in accounting,- but it remains guess work at  best���������souiething that is never excusable.

Before  the advent of this Pat Welsh representative there was not a dollar of Ross  betting money in sight, but immediately after he reached Hedley it was  strongly in evidence, and that it influenced wavering voters here there is  not a. shadow of doubt.

It  runs easily upon roller-bearings, delivers a load of 2000 lbs. and weighs  accurately notwithstanding the jarring  of the stamps, for; its beam is dead-  beat. New chutes were cut in the ore-  bin above the regular ones and simple  gate-mechanism make loading easy  and rapid. The car has I wo  hopper-gates that work well and deliver the ore to the feeders through  trap-doors ill the cam-shaft floor.  Head-samples are taken by means of  a. hinged apron hung midway between  the feeder-lip and the hopper of the  mortar. Normally, this apron shoots  the ore into the. mortar, but when  dropped at intervals it deflects the  entire ore-stream into a sample-box.  Each mortar is fitted with one of these  aprons, and each apron is coupled by  a rod to a shaft running the entire  length of the mill and operated by a  lever at one. end thereof. Afc stated  intervals the samples are taken simultaneously by throwing"this lever and  holding it down during 12 drops af the  feed-stamp; thesample taken in24hours  weighs about 2000 lbs. This we find very  satisfactory on an ore that varies greatly in its gold contents, and in which  gold occurs along the cleavage planes  of mispicked crystals, being the only  valuable constituent of the ore except  arsenic, which is saved but not at this  plant.  Advantages of this System  The several advantages of any  inexpensive system of weighing behind the  batteries  become, evident  upon   brief  short in 3837 tons actual weight, We  do not yet know bow fiir the law of  compensation applies but, whether or  tlie cam- not it will make up this difference in a  year's run, there is profit and great  satisfaction in being able to know at  any given moment exactly what is being done.  Weighing before the feeders gives  the mill foreman a constant check upon the performance of each battery,  and enables a close study to be made  of the causes influencing the duty per  stamp. Daily tonnage curves show  clearly the extreme sensitiveness of a  battery to changes of screen, shoes,  dies, water supply, rock, etc.  With an ore of extriiordinnry  hardness and with cost of supplies high we  have found it impracticable to use cast-  iron dies, although they wo.uld increase  our tonnage by wearing  more  evenly'-,  under   steel    shoes.     We. plane   the  special chrome-steel dies as soon  as  pitted, having found  this, by far the  most economical thing to do.   As soon  as a pitted die is replaced-by''a planed  one the tonnage-curve jumps up sharply ; but it falls just as readily  when  a  new screen is put  in. or  water fails,'  stamps grow light or dies become pitted. ��������� '������������������'������������������ '''"���������������������������;��������� ���������:.-��������� ���������   ;������������������" ^ ���������������������������;'.  The benefit'of weighing  behind������the:  batteries do not end at  the batteries.; ���������  they extend to thei concentrators and  down to the cyanide vats,- giving accurate (lata on the tonage passed-from   ���������  oiie step in the process to .another,  as  well as upon the performance of: each  unit in the system. ' Moreover, experimental tests under differing conditions  are   easily    made  at" any time  with  single, batteries without in any  way  interfering with the rest of the plant.  This is a valuable feature where improvement is desired.  Any method oj calculating tonnage .  from weights of wet samples taken  froin vats or slime-tanks is curtain to  be more or less misleading ; therefore,  this question of weighing behind the  batteries deserves the careful consideration,of all millmen, .even if some"  may'decry it as unnecessary. Since,  trying it in practice the'writer is more  than ever convinced that it is the only  way', and that the benefits derived  from such a system must more than'  counterbalance the slight extra cost of  providing therefore, especially if the  system be made as nearly automatic  as possible.

Wliile all Mr. Burrell'sfriends  ���������were 'sanguine that he would  win in Yale-Cariboo, they wei;e  disposed to place the 'majority  anywhere between 250 and 400 ;  but since lie has won out with  such a handsome majority, it  is but natural that one should  look about for the reasons.  Right up to the day of polling  Liberals claimed that if Mr.  Burrel could beat Duncan Boss  he would beat the strongest  man they had in the riding.  If ability alone will make a  candidate strong, they were no  doubt right in claiming Mr.  Ross to be their strongest man  for it is pretty generally eon-  ceded that there is no resident  Liberals uperior to him so far as  ability is concerned, but there  are other things that count as  well as ability and especially  where his opponent is not only  equal but superior toj him in  point of ability.  Unfortunately for Mr. Ross  he developed too many weaknesses during his term of office,  and not least of these was his  blind derotion to party, which  led him to sink tho interests of  his province and his constituency to that of party as he did  in the matter of "better terms,"  the Asiatic exclusion question  and the Alyesworth bill, while  his neglect of duty in failing to  raise his voice in the interests  of so important an industry in  his own constituency as that of  fruit-growing was bound to tell  against him.  But a factor which probably  tended as much as anything else  to weigh against him was when  his personality was placed in  comparison with that of his  opponent. In the House Mr.  Ross was no favorite and succeeded in making more enemies  than friends. He was needlessly offensive and contributed  more than his share towards  lowering the tone of debate, as  may be readily seen from a careful perusal of Hansard. ' On  the platform during the recent  campaign he��������� practipecl..givaU-r  repression of his . natural'tendency to be personal and oMen-  sive than even' he- was-'known to  do before: but he v/as i'oivcd to    J this because of tho gent!<*mnnly  j'corisidernto course  pur-nted  by  .*j2.(K,'.'.his opponent, and that his ������>p-  ponent's record was clean-'and  was therefore unassailable. But  unfortunately this mov earefnl  schooling of himself for ^elf-  preservation was nullified by  several bad tilings done by his  paper the Greenwood Times,  the most conspicuous of whie-h'  was the doctoring up of "that  imaginary group of Hindus and  printing them -by the thousand  to scatter among the electors."  It is true, his supporters in Hedley made use of it and captured  some voters by it, but for every  vote gained hei-e ten were lost  elsewhere, tending to swell his  opponent's majority.  Then it must not Vie lost sight  of that greater questions'-'were  involved in the contest and the  greatest of all was the question  of provincial rights, and in this  great question Mr. Ross'zeal for  his party rather thart his province made him a culprit in, the  eyes of the electors.  So far as the Hedley result is  concerned it is true his friends  assisted by some extraneous aid  made a spurt during the/.last .36  hours and succeeded in getting  for him a majority; but the net  result attained thereby served  only to give the impression  abroad that Hedley js out of  touch with the " general movement for cleaner politics that is  seen by this magnificent majority in the riding as a whole. ,  ,.  ,iyiETEOROLOGICAL.  ������������������!.

The inquiry before Judge  Cassels promises to develop  more sensational features and  will apparently warrant a much  stronger report than that presented to parliament by Messrs  Courtenay, Fyshe and Bazine.  J. H. Watson, K. C, who is  counsel pursuing the iquiry, has  used some very strong language  to characterize some rake-off  transactions that have come to  light.  The Newfoundland election  has been so close that "when the  speaker is taken out the government have no majority left.  Either a new election or a coalition must be the outcome aud  the circumstance may drive the  colony into the Canadian confederation.  It is funny that politicians who will  make such a spread over British preferential tariff, should consider it a  crime for anyone to give temporary  employment to starving British subjects from another part of the Empire,  who had fought and bled for the British cause But then, consistency in  public policy is a restriction that your  average Liberal thinks it unfair to impose upon him.

The warm support given by the  Nelson Daily News to the candidntive  of Martin'Burrell was appreciated by  Conservatives in Yale-Cariboo.  A.

In addition to the loss of time there are  other ills thatL'exasperatey them. And  who wouldn't roar if things are half as  bad as they are described ?  The Nickel Plate was closed down  on Thursday last to enable the miners  to attend the funeral.of the late Wru.  West. Bev. J. Thurburn-Conn conducted the burial service and the funeral was largely attended.  For the past three weeks or more  there has been no rain in this valley,  and with the large amount of teaming  on the roads, there are places between  here and Keremeos.where the wheels  sink to the axles in dry dust.  The new bridge' over Twenty mile  creek on Haynes street has been open  for traffic since Saturday last. It is a  substantial structure that should last  a good many years and carry any  weight Jhat may -be required of it.  ' Now is the time to look after your  stove pipes. .

Some instance*! of this have been reported  within tho past fortnight, and until!  an exampla is made of some offender  it is likely to go oil        ..'''.'���������  With commendable enterprise, the  Keremeos Trumpet had a fairly complete array of figures showing the result of tho election in Yale-Cariboo.  From the chaotic manner in which  tho returns came in it was no light  task to present the result as completely as it was done in so short a time.  The Gaaette was shown a piece of  ice that may have been as old as  Noah. It was dug but of a bank on  the Similkameen river in one of the  railway cuttings and seemed to form  a cement for angular portions of rock.  The graders met a regular mass of it  which they had to drill and blast out  like ordinary rock.  The recent rise in the Similkameen  river is proving a trifle inconvenient  at some of the fords going over to the  railway camps.- The ford at No. 3  Camp was so deep that the water was  half-way up the box of some of the delivery wagons. Neill's ford is much  shallower and they have been using it  lately, but the road on the other side  of the river between that and camp  No. o is rather rough in places.  IthnsTtfeeh difficult "to" obtain full  election returns, and more difficult to  get them in shape to.show how the  vote stood-by ridings. It is known,  however, that Barrel! obtained a majority in every provincial constituency  that goes to make up Yale-Cariboo.  When the ballot-boxes are all in and  the Returning Officer makes his official  statement, the result will then likely  be shown with each provincial riding'  separate.  .Okanagan Lake points are making a  hard kick ab present because the  C. P. E. have discontinued tho daily  boat. This brings them down to three  mails a week. The matter doesn't ef  feet us here, for when the daily boat  was. running, the P������0. department  wouldn't give a daily, mail service between Penticton and the Similkameen  and as a result wo got mail only three  times a week from points up tin* lake  anyway. As long as Jim Hill runs  daily trains into the Similkameen we  will possess our souls in patience.  Mr. Beringer, a deaf mute, was in  Hedley on Tuesday soliciting orders  for pillow cushions ' hand-painted by  himself, his wife and daughter. The  covers were works of art. He bears  testimonials from Supt Mathesou of the  Deaf and Dumb Institute, Belleville,  and permits from police-offices in various towns where he had solicited  orders. This is his first trip into B. C.  and he has tbe artistic eye to drink in  the beauties of nature lying all about  him���������beauties which will doubtless ere  long be transferred to his canvas.  The Bank of B. N. A. are first in the  field with calendar for 1900 and it is  certainly a good one, combining as it  does artistic beauty with utility. On  it is the bank's coat of arms, tlie coloring being rich and attractive. It .covers two years and one month having  tabs for each month from December  1908 to December 1910 inclusive. Then  there is a page devoted to postal information, one also giving a list of  branches with the^names of managers,  and a page showing the bank holidays  for the two years.  \  FRESH FROM THE MILLS  A CARLOAD OF  ROYAL HOUSEHOLD  FLOUR  <  JUST RECEIVED AT  Shatfords  t  C. P. R. OFFICIALS COMING.  To Examine Route Between Nicola and  Penticton.���������Some Think It Looks  Like Construction.  An inspection to be made next week  by C.-P. R. officials of the route  which was last summer surveyed between Coutlee and Penticton is looked  upon in some quarters as beiug significant of a possible start of construction on this line during the coming year.  It was learned to-day that Mr. R.  Marpole, general executive assistant of  the C. P. R., will leave next Monday  to go over the route in company with  Mr. H. J. Catixbi, consulting engi_  neer, and Mr. H. E. Carry, the engineer who directed the survey work  last summer. This surrey was started  in April, and lasted until the close of  October, the distance covered being in  the neighborhood of 180 miles,  " Messrs. Marpole, Cambie and Carry  will proceed from Vancouver to Coutlee on the Spences Bridge branch line,  and from there they will drive orer  the. entire distance to Penticton, near  the foot of Okanagan lake.  The exact route of the line is of  course a secret, but it is generally  known that the Coldwater rirer will  be followed for some distance south  of Coutlee, and that the line will pass  quite close to Summerland, on Okanagan Lake.  The inspection of tho route, on  which .it is said exceptionally fine  grades have been secured, will occupy  about one week's time.  Mr. Marpole left for Victoria this  afternoon on business, and will return  either to-morrow or Sunday.  Fresh Fruits, Nuts and Peels for   *  your Xmas Cake and Pudding.  NEW GOQDS ARRIVING ALMOST.

Nov. 13���������A notice has  been posted in the interior department  to the effect that employees discorered  dealings in veterans' land grants will  be visited with instant dismissal from  the government service. It was discovered that .some speculative civil  servants were inclined to do some trading with veterans in the way of buying scrip on their own account.  One civil servant discovered that a  South African veteran was ill in the  hospital and hard up. This one had  asked the department.for. $160 instead  of the land warrant awarded, because  he wanted the money. The employee  of the interior department went to the  hospital and told tho veteran he was  in a position to allow his request and  get him a land warrant which he  could sell for $500, $'250 of this to be a  solatium for the information. The  ���������eteran however, got out of the hospital in time to discover that land  grants were worth double the amount  and that he was being worked by the  civil servant, This affair is now before the deputy minster.

Now that .1 ndgt* Oassells has jrot his  hand in, it might bo well for  him  to  ���������investigate the. postal business in Ya.le  Cariboo  .during the past two months.  When watching for the  railroad   to  .   stop building,    don't forget   to keep  your   eye  skinned   for SinitlrCurtis'  '���������furniture.     He's   expected  ,t<>   move  again one of these fine days.  When Sir. Burrell'? friends .in Greenwood   claimed  chat  they   would  beat  Mr. Rot* in his own town,   everybody,  thought they were  ioking,   but evidently they are practical jokers.  When Ivollet presented the iiltima-  'tum."no Ross, no railroad building  past Princeton" tho,long-headed electors up there didn't do a thing but  tuni ble, for tha t was right in ��������� -their  mitt.  Who paid the postage, on all those <$>  demi-scmi Okanagan!- with which the  riding was flooded? Tf it didn't come  out of the "reptile fund" lliet'i Duncan  Boss should hare held on to his shekels. Or perhaps free transmission was  Postmaster-general Lemumx's contribution.  That 23 majority in Kereineos looks  as if Jolm Oliver's efforts at "making  the worse appear the be.t'ter reason"  are about as futile in the-dry belt as  they were among the web-footers of  the Delta, who, on Oct. 2o'th, contributed 2153 towards J. D. Taylor's 700 majority in Westminster riding;  With the telephone and the postal  system both knocking him, Martin  Burrell was up against a. big handicap;  It took a parcel of "Facts for the  People" sixteen days to get from Kam-  . loops to Hedley, and Martin Burrell's  letter'to the electors, mailed in Kamloops on November 5th hasn't got here  ' yet. We're a long suffering people-  Boundary papers supporting Ross  took care that the Hindu picture did  not lind its way into their'columns  even if they did enclose it in the- form  of leaflets; but it remained for two  'bedraggled sluts' of journalism like the  Kamloops Sentinel and the dorni-semi-  Okanagan to besmear themselves, with  a blot in a form that will stick.  Those who claimed that li. G. Sid-  ley is not a political factor.- on Anarchist Mountain are certainly out in  their reckoning, as the figures from  that poll will amply show. Four years  ago, when Mr. Sidluy was supporting  Ross, tho vote was 27 Ross, 5 Burrell,  or over five to one for Ross. This time  with Sicllcy opposed it is 21 Burrell  and S Boss.  Just 5301 voles polled by Bunting in  Yale-Cariboo���������only about* 8 percent of  the total vote cast. Wouldn't it have  been better for Parker Williams to  have given all his time to the Nanaimo  election where there would have been  some chance of doing something, instead of wasting his time and the  money of hard-working men, in monkeying with Yale-Cariboo?  Any bib of sympathy which might  have gone out to Duncan Itosn because  of the complete turn down that has  been given him has been killed by the  printing of that beastly Hindu picture-  in his print shop. And those of his  supporters who used it either by displaying it in their places of business  or carrying it around to workmen in  an endeavor to influence votes thereby  did a low thing, the stigma of which  will stay by them for many a long  day.  t  Is  A  And  Will  Make  Hedley  is the supply 'point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in  Canada���������and many other  promising mines,and prospects.  centre of the  ...PRICE OF LOTS...
