Vernon, B. C.  In spite of the fact that interest in  deferred elections, is expected to wane  very considerably' alter the general  result is announced-the audience which  gi eeted Mr. Burrell in Frateinily Hall,  Hedley, on Friday evening last numbered at least forty per eent more  than that which listened to 'Mr.. Boss  three weeks before.     .    ' "'  To compare the circumstances under  which the two meetings were held,.,  everything should have favored Mv>  Ross, for in addition -to the advantage of holding it before the  general elections. Mr. Ross had also  the advantage of better weather and  bright moonlight, . but" notwithstanding all these in his favor the  greatly ' increased attendance and  heartier reception showed conclusively  that Mr." Burrell is the favorite in this  race.  Mr. J. D. Brass, president of the  Hedley Conservative. Association,  occupied the chair and in. calling the  meeting to order, announced that as  the Socialists were, represented by-  Parker Williams, M. L. A., twenty  minutes Would be given him..  The meeting was opened by A. Megraw in Mr. Burr-ell's .interests who  dealt with some local questions.  Parker Williams followed and complained.that his predecessor liad not  touched .upon" any socialistic topics.  His speech had the characteristic socialist- appeal to the prejudices of  working men with the customary--disregard of accuracy of statements made  by nun.  Mrs Bm-rell on rising made reference  to Mr. Williams'  complaint -it being  limited to  twenty  minutes and said  that iiv expressing the belief that the  candidature of the socialist was not a  a factor in  this contest,  he  did not  mean .any discourtesy to the socialists.  An analysis of the vote of four years  ago, however, showed that the socialist candidate had polled less than ten  per cent of the vote cast and  as 2500  names had since  been  added to the  list of which number "fully ninety-five  percent were ranchers or fruit-growers, among whom socialists were exceedingly rare, he was quite sure that  the vote polled hy them in this contest  would be less that seven per cent.    If  Hawtliornthwaite, at Nanaimo,  could  not get elected in the strongest socialist constituency in Canada whatchance  was then! for a socialist in Yale-Cariboo?   Ho was surprised  to  hear Mr.  Williams' sweeping condemnation  of  railways, and reminded him that the  socialist platform recognized' railways  owned  and  operated  by  the. state,  a  principle which he (Mr. Burrol) believed in and had advocated four years  ago, and yet the socialists at that time  had- taken a course that resulted  in  the election of a man, who was opposed to public ownership.  He next took up the question of the  deferred election, and assured his  audience that after driving  through  the door of tlie federal administration  which negotiated a treaty with Japan  that derived "Canada of her right to  regulate immigration from the'flowery  Lingdom. In it Mr. Ross, culpability  was shown both in neglecting to see  that a clause was inserted by which  Canada would retain the right to regulate immigration, and by advocating  <m the floor of the House an arrangement by which working men could be  coerced by bringing-in orientals in  large mrmbers and repatriating them  when there" was no longer need for  them concerning the particular object  for which they may havelieen brought  in. ' . '     .-  The matter for "Better Terms" for  British Columbia was next taken, up  and Duncan Ross' assertion that British Columbia was in debt to the Dominion $5,000,000 and had no claim on  federal exchequer was shown in all its  "absurdity, an array of Liberal testimony adding t.q Mv., Ross' disconfit-  ure in that, matter being given for-  Sir Wilfrid LtVurie'r, Fielding, J. A.  .Macdonald and John Oliver were all  orjerecoid.to the contrary..  By taking the stand which he has  done, Mr. Ross has made it"-- impossible for him to do anything for this  province in the matter of urging a claim  for "Better Terms", find hence the  folly of electing him as representative  of any constituency in the piovince.  The Aylesworth bill was handled  without gloves, its inconsistencies and  impossibilities laid have, and Duncan  Ross shown by the public records to  be one of its most culpable advocates.  Mr. Burrell next referred to the  fruit-growing industry which was  second only to that of copper mining  in the value of its output. In connection with a tariff to aid the ���������fruit-grower, he was not speaking as ii high protectionist but merely wanted to point  out that if protection is a. good thing  the fruit-grower should have his share.  There is in this province 50,000 acres  under orchard and the output, demanded some forethought concerning  a market. The consumer in this country had six-sevenths of his fruit now  coming in free of duty, such as lemons,  oranges ,etc. and all that fruitgrowers  had asked was to put a tariff, less than  the American tariff by twenty-five per  cent on .the"other seventh coming in.  When this matter was under discussion in the House at Ottawa on January 22nd, ld07, as shown by the  Hansard record, Duncan'Ross was in  British Columbia campaigning against  the McBride Government.  Mr. Burrell in conclusion thanked his  hearers for the interested attention  they had given him, and the electors  .for tlie hearty reception he was meeting all over the riding of Yale-Cariboo  which augured success on November  12th. He deplored the fact that electors in Yale-Cariboo had been treated  so badly in the matter of a deferred election and urged every elector whether  conservative, liberal or socialist to turn  out on November 12th and record his  vote.N  DEAL PENDING  ON GOLDEN ZONE.

PROGRESS.  What Is  Being Done in Various Construction  Camps.  I   VANDER J. ROSE   8  |C Proprietor S  Lillooet and Cariboo, visiting sections  that Mr. Ross has not gone, near, In-  had found that the election could  easily have been held on the same day  and showed that the motion to have  the nomination date moved on a few  days had been voted down with Mr.  Ross' assistance,  He held that it was a fallacy that a  representative could do nothing for  his constituency unless lie was a supporter of the government and cited  instances to show how British Columbia had suffered for belief in that fallacy.  The Japenese question was gone  into very fully and the crime laid at  Considering the force employed the  progress being made with tlie railway  grade between here and Princeton is  v.ery encouraging. Grade is shaping  up fast on most of the contracts underway. K. G. Hankinson has a nice  piece-of work, beginning at a point  across the river opposite the upper-end  of Holmes' fiat and extending on to a  point opposite the Allison town site.  There is a great deal of rock work in  the contract and it is coming out in  good shape. It is more difficult to see  the portion in W. A. Maclean's contract as it is farther from the wagon  road and obscured by timber, but it is  understood that they are getting  along well with it,  At J. W. Stewart's Camp No. 3  above Sterling Greek in charge of Jas.  M. Douga.ll, there are half a dozen or  more stations under construction. It  appears to be light work for the most  part and they are getting along with  it very well.  Madden Bros on the Webster place,'  have been moving a lot of dirt and  have taken out some large cuts.  Mr. Henry .Bahrs has taken an  option for thirty days on the Golden  Zone group from the. owners, Messrs.  J. J. and T. H. Marks, Paul Brodhagcn  and J. Murphy, and on Tuesday morning he started east to place it with  Boston capitalists. ' Now that the  presidential election is over- business-is  exnected to steady down and capital  will again begin to sit up and take  notice, to any good things offered to it..  The.Golden Zone group consists'.of  four fine'mineral claims, the Golden  Zone. Irish Boy, B. C. and Silver Bell  upon which are large surface showings  in a formation resembling, strongly  that of I he Nickel Plate and containing good values in gold.  . The development-done up to date is  principally in the nature of surface  prospecting, but in the two sma\i  shafts that have been sunk (50 and 35  feet) the ore has been continuous.  The Gazette three years ago in a write-  up after a personal visit to the property said:       '.."���������'.':  "The ground where the best show! ngs  are to be seen is. thickly .timbered with  a dense undergrowth'.of young pines  and fallen timber and covered with  drift or wash, and only from its bearing with" other exposures was there  any suggestion of its existence there.  The first discovery was made, on an  iron capping on the Irish Boy, but in  prospecting from a deep draw farther  south and west, a genuine ledge was  discovered of geiferous width, lying  between granite on the. northwest and  porphyry on the southeast. Following the line of contract in a northeasterly direction the lead was uncovered  in several places, showing the continuity, and various crosscuts give evidence of the strength of the vein in  width. There are regular walls with  gouge and slickensides, the strike being approximately northeast and  southwest and the dip apparently to  the''southeast.  "The ore is a quartz gangue with mispickel carrying gold and silver with  some nickel and cobalt. The nickel  in all probability is from the arsenide  in nickeliferons pyrrhotite which is  the. most common occurence.  "The   development work and   the  manner in which it has been done testifies both to the  industry and good  judgment   of the   owners.     There a  large deep open  cut 30 feet  long of  which IS feet is of ore,   and samples  taken from this have given $80 in gold.  There is another combined  cross-cut  and   tunnel 75 feet long, with  an  uprise to the surface  at the end  of  the  tunnel.    In  this, some -15 feet of ore  has been  cross-cut,  and in   it also is  evidence of a cross-cut fissure of later  origin    cutting    the ledge.     Farther-  south is a shaft 50 feet deep all iu   ore,  strongly   mineralized with  mispickel  and said to contain good average  values throughout.    The cross-cut above  mentioned would seem to indicate the  existance of three parallel quartz veins  although the inclosing bands separating them are well mineralized and contain ore values.   Further south,  still,  in some smaller openings the quartz is  very clean, and some blende is in  evidence with the mispickel."  Since the above was written more,  stripping has been done with splendid  results, in showing up a large body of  ore; and since then also the government have completed a fine wagon  road from Hedley which passes close  by the claims, and wiK-, permit the  hauling of the. heaviest machinery on  the property itself; besides the railway  is now graded to Hedley, and ready  for the steel.   There is also now a five-  Tafc Secures Substantial Lead  .Over Bry<m in Hace for  Presidency and Uncle  Sam.  AGAIN- REACHES F.0R HIS BUCKSAW.

MR. BURRELL AS A SPEAKER  Faithful Word  Picture of Mr.   Burrell's  : .Style, of Public Speaking���������Why his  .     Supporters are Proud of Him.  The\ Vernon News gives a very  accurate and- just appreciation of  Martin Burrell u's a speaker. Electors  of ���������Yale-Cariboo who have heard him  will agree with" every word of it. The  News says :  "Mr.  Burrell  Avoir  golden  opinions  from political friends and foes aliice by  his straightforward and manly attitude, and the  sincerity and  mo deration of his  utterances.     His platform  manner is characterized by a quiet dig--  ni'ty combined with an easy and fluent"  mode of address which at once  serves  to capture the sympathy  and  respect  of his hearers ; and  his  calm  and"' in- .  cisive presentation of his  case  carries  with,ic conviction to the mind of any  person who approaches  the consideration- of the matters under discussion  in anything approaching to a judicial ^  spirit unbiased by political preference.  There is nothing of the demagogue  in  Mr. Burrell.    He appeals always to his  reason, and never  to  the  passions  of  his audience.    His  clear  and  definite  statements show, that he has his  facts  well in  hand;   and   the  unerring  accuracy of his conclusions arc  built up  ina  logical   sequence   that  leaves   no  loophole,    for adverse  criticism.     Ho  also possesses a vein of  humor whicli  at not infrequent intervals flushes out  through his speech, and never fails   to  create a ripple of appreciative laughter.  His address  on  Thursday  night  was  beyondldoubta.vote-making utterance,  audits effect will be plainly apparent  on election day.  CARD OF THANKS.  The. Rev. and Mrs.'J.

And  a funnier  feature  still,  of this  incident,   was   to  hear some of the type of work-  ingman,* who  can  be influenced  by this sort of thing, applauding him.   However, it is safe to  say that the incident  will be  productive of some good, for the  more    brainy and   thoughtful  working men, no   matter what  line of labor they may follow,  will doubtless conclude that if  this sort of humbug goes with  socialism, it is about all of socialism they want to know, and  the   people   of Newcastle   can  thank Mi". Parker Williams for  the fact that  a  very low estimate of their intelligence must  of     necessity    be   formed   in  Hedley when a man, who will  express such a view is chosen  by them as-their representative  in parliament.     And what do  George    Winkler   and   K.   W.  Northey,    the   high  priests  of  Socialism in Similkameen, think  of this idea  that if  we are  to  attain to the highest degree of  happiness and honor we are  to  keep on packing our blankets,  and if said   blankets  can do  a  little walking on their own  account, so much the more honor  attained.  Four years ago after the general' election, Templem-m and  Billy Mclnnis came into Yale-  Cariboo and brazenly told the  electors that they must vote for  a supporter of the government  ir they wanted to get anything.  They weren't even as generous  as the grit stateman, who in a  bye-election in 1896, told the  electors of Owen Sound that  they "must choose between active sympathy and cold justice."  But Templeinan and Billy will,  be conspicuous by their absence  this time. They both have  troubles enough of their own.  If the few Socialists in Yale-  Cariboo are sincere in their beliefs in governments ownership  of public utilities, how can they  as sane men repeat the inconsistency of four years ago in  throwing away their votes on a  socialist candidate, who has riot  the remotest chance of election,  and thereby aid in the election  of Duncan Ross, who is against  public ownership,���������oyer Mr. Burrell, who is in favor of public  ownership ?,:  There is a friendly but earnest rivalry among the Conservatives of Hedley, Keremeos  and Princeton as to/which town  can give Mr.- Burrell the largest  majority. It is up to Hedley  Tories to put in their best digs  to see that Hedley is to the fore,  and as any community will do  itself credit by declaring for the  placing of politics in this country  on a higher plane, which they  would do by choosing a'man' of  Mr. Burrell's standing for their  representative, they invite the  assistance of their liberal friends  to that end.  A nd now Duncan Ross' friends  are  trying,  as a   last   hope to  save  him to make the  electors  believe   that   if    Yale-Cariboo  should give him  another trial,  he would get  the  vacant portfolio  caused  by  the  defeat of-|  Tempieman.   This  truly is  the  funniest  of all.     If  somebody  should   meanwhile   kill Ralph  Smith, and if somebody else or  the bubonic plague should cause  Sloan, of Comox-Altin, to shuffle  off   this  mortal  coil  inside  of  thirty days or thereabout,  and  if several  other  things, ^hpuld  happen   to   happen arid" some  more things   should  peradven-  . The Socialist meeting in  Princeton was addressed by  Geo. E. Winkler and Charles  Bunting. A funny story is told  that in their Princeton meeting  Mr. Winkler deemed it advis-  able to apologize to the audience for Mr. Bunting's poor  speaking. But of course as Mr.  Winkler w^is there in the role  of chief big thunder, he could  comfort the audience that what  disappointment they would experience in listening to Mr.  Bunting would be fully made  up for in the delight they would  feel when his own musical  thunder began to peal.  Everybody will be glad when  the election is over and things  get down again to normal.  Duncan Ross is the man who is  to blame for prolonging the  agony by deferring the election  when there was no need for it.  At least not to anybody but  Duncan.  Duncan Ross told us solemnly  in Hedley that the Election x\.ct  wouldn't allow the nomination  in constituencies where there is  deferred election to be put on  7i few days, and yet we see that  in Gaspe and Chicoutimi-Sague-  nay, Quebec, the date of nomination was put on and the elections in those constituencies are  now over.      Moral,���������never be-  w  lieve anything Duncan says.  aaoaincn3SEiR3KEcs& *  The .. deferred election trick  has been tri&tl once too often in  Yale-Cariboo, for Martin Burrell  is going to win and win handsomely.  Any elector, in Yale-Cariboo,  who has heard,- both Martin  Burrell and Duncan; Ross and  has made it a point toc find out  something about the dispositions and habits of tlie two men,  and have decided (as they must)  thaj; Burrell is the better, man  of the two, but who'will,never-  theless harbor for a moment.the  thought of ,staying away from  the poll with the idea 'that a  deferred election will make it  impossible for Mr. Biirrell to  win, should employ somebody  to kick him, for if not he will  be sure to kick himself after  the election.  THE BANK OF  Many liberals who have very  little use for Duncan Ross might  have voted for him if the election had been held on Oct. 26th,  but now ;that the government  is no longer in danger they will  conclude that this is an opportune time for them to choose a  better man as representative  and will vote for Mr. Burrell.

Mr; and Mrs. Logsden are taking up their residence in the dwelling  belonging to Geo. K.' French and vacated by him last week.  ' On Thursday last'Dr. McG-regor  assisted by Dr. MeEwen,' of Keremeos;  amputated W." West's foot. The operation was carefully and skilfully  performed, the patient standingit well,  and he is since making a very satisfactory recovery.  In the fine- livery outfit of Broom-  field and Garrison, Princeton has one  of the best livery barns in the country.  They have an extt;a good outfit of rigs  and being themselves thorough horsemen, they have got together a bunch  of very good horses.  Announcement was made on Monday that Duncan Marshall of Edmonton and Dr. Clark of Red Deer, Saskatchewan, were to hold forth last night  in the interests of Duncan Ross. They  missed connection and the meeting  was postponed until further notice.  Ashnola John doesn't approve of  bank holidays on Monday with Saturday afternoon also a holiday, especially when he wants to, get a cheque  cashed. John, holding up three digits,  says: "three suns, h.*ilo mammok  paper: halo chickamin"  Complaints have, been made to the  constable that clothes line thieves are-  operating in Hedley. This surely is  petty thieving with a vengance. The  constable, who is a very modest man  hopes that he will not be sent out in  search of some of the articles that are  missing.  The Hedley Dancing Club announce  a Thanksgiving dance to be held in  Fraternit3'- Hall, Hedley, on Monday  Evening, November the 9th. The  Simmons and Hill orchestra will furnish the music, which is ample guarantee that it will be all that can.be  wished.  The Socialist meeting in the interests  of Chas. Bunting was held in Fraternity Hall, Hedley, on Saturday evening. Geo. 13. Winkler occupied the  chair and the speakers were Candidate*  Bunting and Parker Williams. There  was a fair turnout most having gone  out of curiosity and they heard tho  usual socialistic stock arguments  against capital,  Fred Lane, who had one or two contracts between Keremeos and Hedley,  which he finished up in .Tune, went  through to Princeton last week. He  has taken a piece of work from the C.  P. R. on Vancouver Island an extension of the E. & N. northward. It  was rumored about Princeton that his  mission there, was to purchase the  Hotel Tulameen for another party.  Apparently, if. certain youths, who  are old enough to know better do not  mend their ways, they will get a trip  to Kamloops some of these Hue days.  The school board have been trying to  find, out who the guilty parties are  .who have comittedacts of vandalism  about the school premises. Some of  these, young wretches have gone there  after school hours drawing obscene  pictures about the outhouses ;ind closets, and writing iiiili -in the walls.  Sufficient evidence lias b--en wbtained  to locate some, of the offenders, and  thu constable has been put on their  track. Parents would do well to exercise more restraint, for'when youths  'get going at thisrule I .hey are liable to  end up had, if not promptly checked iu  their evil course.  Last Week Mr. Duncan Ross'  elongated  FinUK ACHATES    made-   another  pilgrimage up tlie Similkameen valley.  This lime the mission appeared   t<>  he  swift anil mysterious   with  Princeton  the   apparent   objective  point.     The  only feature of  it I hat'had  any  pretence -if  openness    was  some   orientations bluffing, that speedily subsided  as soon a^ it was called, and  that  \vr.������  immediately.    In   Keremeos  the  first  crack was to pull out $20,00 (not a $20  Molson bill this time) and offer to  bet  it that Ross would be  elected.     The  bet was at once taken, whereupon the  elongated and hinted  at repeating it;  but when he found that the other mau  was prepared  to stay  with  him  the  remaining toad-skins  that comprised  the roll were forthwith piit down into  his jeans and  the game of bluff was  discontinued.     At Piinceton  he also  tried the game but with some variations.   There the amount of first offer, was placed at $KX>,  thinking,  no  doubt, that this  boldness might save  him the loss of another $20; but when  the bluff was again promptly  called,  the offer was interpreted as only a joke  and the money didn't have to go up.  Thus the lot of all cheap John  sporty  ones who would try,to create artificial  bullish tendencies   in Duncan   Ross'  stock in Similkameen is  not a happy  one.  It would take more than balloon juice  from, that ''balloon factory" which the  Star wrote about to restore any noticeable amount of bouyancy to a  stock weighed down with a four  years' accumulated cargo of sinkers.  >���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  WE AIM TO SATISFY  THAT IS WHY WE CAKEY  SUCH A LARGE STOCK OF  FOOTW  We have Boots and Shoe*; to fit  nil "sizes and shapes of feet���������Lien's,  Women's -and   Children's ��������� and at  i  all   prices.

Mr. Parker Williams has a novel objection to Mr. Burrell as a candidate  for election to the Canadian Commons.  vMr. Williams says that Burrell would  do all right as a member in the British  House of Commons, but he is too honest  to- send" dowrf among that eropked  bunchy at Ottawa.- Mr. Burr-ell's friends  will; weigh the objection, but in doing  so what conclusion are.the\r  to arrive  at concerning Mr.  Bunting?    So far  as the electors in Hedley are concerned, they haye never  heard  anything  derogatory of Mr. Bunting and  would  be quite willing  that he should pass  current in this campaign as an  honest  man.   But nevertheless,  there is  the  unavoidable inference from  Mr.  Williams r-emark.   Mr. Burrell is honest,  therefore Mr. .-Williams can't support  him; hut   Mr.   Williams can support  Mr. Bunting, therefore, Mr.   Williams  must    know    something   about   Mr;  Bunting that the electors of Hedley do  not know.

NO BARRIER  NOTICE.  To Successful Wireless Telegraphy-  periments in Far North.  -Ex-  -*��������� Seattle, October 29.���������According to  advices received at the local signal  office yesterday afternoon, the signal  service wir-eless stations in Alaska  have made another record, one which  apparently removed the doubt which  has heretofore existed as to the feasibility of sending wireless messages  overland for great distances.  Fort Gibbon, at the junction of the  Tanana and Yukon Rivers, several  hundred miles inland, is receiving  messages from Nome and St. Michael,  500 miles distant, over many ranges of  hills.  The Fort Gibbon station caused the  ignal service to feel that it is leading  the world, when on Monday night it  copied a message sent by the steamer  Northwestern, 1,100 miles west of  Gapu Flattery, to the United Wireless  Station at Cordova. Messages sent by  the United Wireless Station at Cordova and the temporary naval station  wireless at the same place were also  received at Fort Gibbon with remarkable clearness. The message of the  Northwestern travelled about 1,200  miles over two high ranges of mountains capped with snow. High ranges  of mountains separate Cordova- from  Fort- Gibbon.  The Fort Gibbon station was established by Lieutenant M. A. Jennet  last summer. He considers the work  of the Fort Gibbon Station to be far  ahead of anything in the way of a land  wireless station in the world.  SIMILKAMEEN LAND.
