Victoria, B.'C, Oct. 2nd.���������Mrs. Joan  Olive Dunsmuir, SO years old, Canada's  richest woman, died of heart failure  this morning at ,Craig Davrach, the  castle residence on a height, overlooking the city where she lived in solitary  grandeur, estranged from her son,  Lieutenant Governor Dunsimiir, whom  she was suing to recover the share of  her husband's estate to which she considered her daughters entitled at the  time of her death.  Mrs. Dunsmuir came to the north  Pacific coast in a sailing ship of the  Hudson Bay company, with her husband and two children, landing at Fort  Vancouver, Wash., in 1851, where  Lieutenant Governor Dunsmuir was  born. Her husband, the late Robert  Dunsmuir, was an expert Scotch coal-  master, and he was sent to Port Rupert, at the north end of Vancouver  island, to open up coal measures there.  These were abandoned and he went to  Nanaimo. Fifteen- years after he discovered the Wellington coal measures  after much prospecting, making his  find of outcropping beneath an upturned root far in the forest, and the  operation of these coal measures, in  which Admiral Farquhar of the Esqui-  maltc naval station. Captain Egerton  and Lieutenant Diggle ��������� afterward  bought out���������were then interested, laid  the foundation of the immense fortune, valued at over, $15,000,000, left to  Mrs. Dunsmuir.  SOLD TO SONS FOB $400,000.  When he died in 1889 soon after completing the Esquimau and Nanaimo  railway, which he planned to continue  to the north end of Vancouver island,  had he lived, his sons, Lieutenant Governor Dunsmuir- and the late Alexander Dunsmuir, began negotiations with  their mother to purchase the estate  with its many subsidiary businesses,  and a few years afterward the whole  business was turned over to them  for-  $400,000.  The action pending when Mrs. Dunsmuir died, alleged the sons secured  her"consent by misrepresentation and  by fraud, while Lieutenant Governor  Dunsmuir's denials say that it is good  management that made the business  so successful since taking it over. The  two brothers arranged that the survivor should get the entire estate, and  when Alexander Dunsmuirr died he  willed it to the Lieutenant Governor,  who had to defend an expensive suit  brought by Edna Wallace Hopper,  whose mother- became Alexander Dunsmuir's   wife,_ seeking   to    break   her  The beginning of the campaign in  Yale-Cariboo, so far as this portion of  the riding is concerned, took place on  Tuesday night.  In the hall there were several rows  of empty chairs in thl- front, which  showed that the interest is considerably short of that shown in the last  provincial campaign.  J. A. Schubert was chairman, and,  unless there is a discrepancy in timepieces, called the meeting to order a  trifle ahead of time. '   Duncan  Ross  was the only speaker.   He began with  the deferred election, .saying that the  election act wouldn't allow of the nomination being held sooner to permit  elections to be held on the same day in  all ridings. ��������� He contrasted conditions  and volume of business  in 1896 with  the present and   attributed  the   improvement to the Laurier government.  He dealt with the Aylesworth bill, denying that original draft provided for  preparation of lists by party appointees  between  the issue of the   writs and  polling day, and gave a new definition  of what is comprehended in " the thin  red line."   He pooh-hoohed the scandals which to him were no scandals at  all, and defended-the steamer Arctic  equipment. . ,He denied that   Laurier  had placed the cost of the  G..T. P. at  $13,000,000,' and accused the Conservatives of continued hostility to the G.  T.  P.      His opinion  of the  "Better  Terms" claim made for British Columbia, by McBride. and Cowan was that  these  men were " mendacious mendicants trying to get what didn't belong  to them'', and told, of a set of figures  which was compiled at his instance and  which showed that instead of the Dominion   owing   British   Columbia  19  millions, British  Columbia owed the  Dominion. 5 millions.    He spent the  SEES DEFEAT AHEAD.  Brodeur's Tell-tale Admission���������This Is  Why Laurier Will Spend Balance  of Campaign in*- Quebec.  " I have to tell you, gentlemen, that  this internal strife in the Liberal party  must cease, for if the opposition carries  move than ten seats in the province of  Quebec the Laurier government will  be defeated." .These words were ut-  tered by Hon. L. P. Brodeur at the  Liberal convention in Sonlanges county as a warning.  There were three aspirants for the  nomination and on the first ballot Dr.  Bourbonnaiss, the last member, got 34  votes out of 82, the remaining votes  being divided between Dr. Da ugh and  Mr. Charand. Then Dr. Bonrbonnais  declared that he had the majority on  the" first ballot and would stand for  parliament in any event. At this  juncture Mr. Brodeur arose and called  for harmony warning them in the  above 'words that the outlook for the  Liberal party was exceedingly grave.  TUNNEL SCHEME MOOTED.

ROSE  Proprietor  5  Mr. and Mrs. MacPhail of Nicola,  and Mr. and Mrs. Ten-ill of Hedley  have the sympathy of their many  friends in tlie bereavement from the  death of their little sou and grandson,  Donald MacPhail. The little lad was  the life of the household in Hedley  during their residence here. No particulars are to hand concerning the  cause of death, but it is reported that  cholera infantum was the ailment  with which he was stricken. It was  also reported that Mrs. MacPhail was  quite ill. Mr. and Mrs. Ten-ill received the message on Sunday morning, and started immediately for Ni-j  cola. '  Buckley river valley district on the  east slope of the Babine mountains in  British Columbia is looked upon by  experienced mining men as one of the  most promising in the country, said  W. A. Pratt, formerly an operator in  the Rossland district, "and," he added,  "as soon as there are transportation  facilities, afforded by the completion  of the Grand Trunk Pacific road, the  various properties will become big  producers."  Mr. Pratt has associated with him  Fred Birney, discoverer of the Furnace  Creek district; D. P. Mitchell and  Lewis McLaughlin, of Spokane, in five  claims recently located near the Cronin  property, and he says the ledge near  the surface is from 40 to 50 feet wide  and richer than any of the mines in  the Boundary' country.  "The Buckley valley district is the  best ]*huvu ever seen," Mr. Pratt said,  "and I confidently believe it will develop into one of the biggest camps of  the country.- James Cronin, of Spokane, has one of the most wonderful  showings of silver-lead oi-es 1 have  ever seen in the northwest, and I believe his property will prove to be one  of the big producer.*" of the country."  II. Johns, manager of the Napoleon  mine, operated by the British Columbia Mining Company, at Greenwood,  B. C, reports that the Napoleon mine  is turning out an average of 2000 tons  daily. The present price of $13.35 a  ton, he says, is too low to permit of  mining on a large scale.    He added :  " It is the general belief in the. Boundary country that we are going to see  a wonderful revival in the mining  business after the presidential election,  which, of course, is being as anxiously  awaited across the line as in this  country.  "As soon as the price of copper gets  back to normal, which the mining men  fix at $16 a ton or more, then you'll  begin to see the output look up all  along the line. The Granby smelter  at Grand Forks is now turning out an  average of 3000 tons a day. We will  probably be doing as well at Greenwood as soon as conditions right  themselves."  The phenomenal success which has  attended the flotation and administration of United ��������� Wireless Telegraph  affairs still continues,. ..and agents are  ordered to sell no more stock less than  $20 per share.  This   means that  the stock which  l  started at par ($10 per share) early in  1907 has now reached a price that represents a premium of one hundred  per cent., and this advance, strange to  say, has heen made before the company has much more than begun to  cover its field, and has been during a  period of continuous outlay for extension of the system.  During the past month a new factory has been established in Seattle for  manufacture of wireless outfits, and  several contracts have been made with  South American republics as well as  with more steamship lines equipped  with the service. These extensions all  mean rapid increase in the earning  power of the company, and it. is this  which is hoisting thestock. Should it  continue to advance at the same rate  as it has been going during the pastl  six months Jand the probability is that  it will go faster, for -most of the profits  are being expended on extension) it  will in a few months more be out of  reach of the majority of people.  There is this about it, however, that  *the company must go on spending  largely for extension "of the system,  for perhaps a couple of years or more,  before they will attain their full earning power, and while the increased  profits are helping materially to do  this, they will still have to provide  funds by the sale of stock to keep'  abreast of the demands made upon  them for extension of the system and  will therefore not likely be able to  withdraw their stock from the market  for some time.  Of course rapid advance in price is  equivalent to withdrawal for the majority of people, when it gets beyond  their reach. Those who could get it  early this year for $.15 per share may  not like to pay $20 now; and those  who possibly before this year is out  will have to pay $25 for it, would be  glad of the chance to buy at $20.  While, the company hope to be able  to spare enough from 1908 earnings to  declare a, dividend the coining January,  they   frankly  tell  their-   shareholders  that they do not expect to pay large  dividends for a. couple   of years yet,  owing   to  the pressing demands upon  them for extension of the system so as  to enable them to cover more territory  and thus increase their earning power;  but they do expect by the end  of two  years to have  their earning power increased to such extent that the yearly  profits  will   both   take  care of  what  further extension may be  needed and  enable   them   to  pay bigger dividends  and save  the balance  of the stock to  the  treasury.  The  only  stock  now   being sold  is  In addition to the excellent surface  showings on the Nickel Plate and  other claims in Camp Hedley now being worked, the progress of development thus far has proven the existence.of some ore bodies, of which there  were no surface indications, and this  argues the existence of blind leads or  deposits.  The ore bodies are contact deposits,  along the contact of andesites with  sedimentables, the values being concentrated wherever cut by eruptive  dikes. The'dikes that have shown on  the surface or that have been encountered in course of development have  come up through the granite cutting  the sedimentary quartzites and limestones that have proved favorable for  the deposition of mineral values, and  many of such may have never come to  the surface. Thus the possibilities of  the camp are enormous, and especially  so in view of the contemplated scheme  of penetrating the mountain by means  of a tunnel run in from Hedle.y for  drainage and extraction purposes, to  cheapen the cost of production and  render payable enormous bodies of ore  that now fall slightly below the- grade  required by the large concern now  operating here.  Some of the Future Mines.  Laying aside the possibilities from  deep mining the outlook from exploitation of the upper strata alone, from  which about two millions in gold bullion have already been extracted, is  exceedingly  bright.  The Kingston Gold & Copper Mining  Co. own a group of claims adjoining  the town upon which considerable development has been done with good  results. Plain evidences as to quantity  and value of ore point the conclusion  that the property is not to '.blame, for  any failure to keep it in operation.  The Florence Group is splendidly  located not only for the existence of  large deposits but for- economical  working. Development work done has  given excellent results. Negotiations  are now well under way for providing  capital to work the property. Of the  group, Mr. Camsell, of the Geological  Survey, says: "A group in the northern part of the sheet, owned by T.  Bradshaw and others, gives promise of  containing some valuable bodies ois  ore. Besides this there are many  other claims, which with cheaper-  transportation aud better facilities will  be worked to advantage."  The Golden Zone group offers a reasonably sure thing for capital to take  hold of and make a big mine.  The Toronto and Galena, the Horsefly, the Stumps property, the Windfall  group, the Greenwood and other claims  owned by Duncan Woods ; the Duffy  claims, the Princeton, the Sacra.ine.nto*  the Cahill chums, and others on the-  Sunnyside slope ; the Hummingbird,,  the Greenhill claims, John Lodge's-  group, the Riordan mountain properties of J. Riordan, McKinnon and others; the Roderick and MoNulty claims,,  and R. Stevenson's group are among;,  those that warrant investigation, with  many others.  The economic geology  of the camp  has been gone into with  a reasonable  degree of thoroughness by Charles  Camsell, of the geological survey, in.  his preliminary report, and will he-  dealt with more thoroughly in his full  report and topographical map expect  ed to appear early in 1909. Mr. CamselL  was very favorably impressed, and his  reports' may be had by applying for  them to the Mines branch of the Geological Survey Department, at Ottawa.  The camp is one that offers every encouragement for capital to invest. The-  ore is here, the values are in it, and  the Similkameen river which flows past  unutilized will when harnessed furnish  power for working all the properties.  preferred  participating stock.  Track-laying has been in progress on  the Chesaw spur of the V. V. & E. between Myncaster and Chesaw for tho  past fortnight.  The Hidden Creek Mines Co. have  made the final payment upon the large  gold-copper property which Mr. M. K.  Rodgers bonded last winter on Observatory Inlet. The property has turned  out so well on development that they  were satisfied to complete the bond  before its expiration. A compressor  plant was installed about two months  ago.

Laurier,  emulating the example of Sif ton  who  wanted   to  compound   a  judgment  of $4:000   which  the  city of Winnipeg held against  him    at  50  cents on the dollar  (that's  what Joe  Martin says),  proceeded to go Sif ton several  better    by    dividing   the B. C.  claim by 19,    But, la me !  what  a mistake Laurier made in being  in so big a hurry to  give away  that  $100,000 a    year   for ten  years    before    Duncan    had   a  chance to get that new set*-of  figures prepared  to  show  that  the boot was on the other foot  and B. G.  owed  the Dominion  $5,000,000.  But he will probably  wait until we can sell our pumpkins before having us sued for  the  difference.    It   reminds us  of a story they tell of Tom Ellis  and  a  well-known   gentleman  who  shall   be   nameless.     The  former believed  that the latter  owed him something over $200  and he  had  A. H. Wade  make  out tlie bill and present it.   This  man    had    the    reputation    of  being an adept at figuring  out  off-sets, and he didn't do a thing  to Wade's bill but just brought  tho balance down to something  like $80.15.    When Ellis learned  of this, he exclaimed "For God  sake   Alfred,   take it and write  him out a clear receipt.    If the  son of a gun gets figuring again  he'll have me owing him fifty."  until the mail from the south  opened about 8 p. m. on January 9th, and by 7 a. m. on January 10th they were printed and  on the south bound stage addressed to returning ; officer  Coleman, or. in less than twelve  hours after the copy was received and not a, minute of  which was within the working  day.

On Sunday night Sept. 27th,  Smith Curtis told Goodeve and  J. H. Schofielcl on the train: "I  would sooner be defeated on  Oct. 26 than win a postponed  election," and on Monday:.28th  lie was arguing strongly in favor of postponing until Nov. 3rd  and now it is Nov. 12th.

No, he demanded from the first  the unfair advantage of a deferred election, and he stayed  with that determination, never  wavering in it for a.moment,  while Smith Curtis was cutting  his capers. ���������  ���������, ���������.���������������������   Sir Wilfrid Laurier, fully cognizant of the fact that "the'people of Canada as a whole were  turned against him and his associates, has decided to make  the province of Quebec his last  ditch, and to that end will spend  the remaining time between  now and Oct, 26 in the province  of Quebec. Sir Wilfrid was to  have come west, but we have  only to note Brodeur's appeal  to Quebec Liberals -to see  why Sir Wilfrid changed, his  plans. If the public could only  follow Sir Wilfrid during the  next 18 days into all the public  meetings and secret Conclaves  in the province of Quebec, they  would get some interesting sidelights on the Manitoba f school  question aud the autonomy bill  for Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Joe Martin said on a public  platform in Victoria on Sept.  29: "I think it is only fair to  say that when the Conservatives were thrown out of power  in 189G every member of that  government was a poor man."  Nepotism was a charge that  the Liberals were so fond of  shouting at the Conservatives,  but for every cabinet minister  in Sir John Macdonald's time  who found soft berths for his  relatives in the public service,  there have been a dozen of such  berths with Laurier's ministers.

When, cattle ranching, which employed but a few hands, was the only  paying industry"in the Shnilkameen,  and the worked-chit placer diggings  had been abandoned^ it was a very  sparse population which this district  could maintain, because of the lack of  transportation and the isolated position of the valley. It is true it had a  perfect climate and fertile hinds upon  which grew the native grasses that  fattened the herds which were driven  out over the mountain passes to market; but-agriculture on a paying basis  under such conditions was wholly out  of the question, and for decade after-  decade little was grown, whether in:  grain,vegetables or fruits, beyond what  was required to supply the local wants  of those engaged in cattle ranching.

Now we have a, railway grade at outdoor, and the -/mineral wealth in the  hills surrounding Hedley was the one  thing which above all others demonstrated to railway capital that there  was here something for which to build,  for had it not been for the work done  on the Nickel Plate and the "induce-'  ments held out to railway companies,  they would never have thought of  building in here. Indeed the president  of the Great Northern has said so.  What Was There To Show ?  As early as 1877 the late Dr. Dawson,  in his general report on the geology of  the:Similkameen, referred iu most favorable terms to the geological conditions prevailing here, long before any  prospector had set a stake. Subsequent  events demonstrate, the correctness of  his views, and closer geological study  than Dr. Dawson was able to give in  his hurried trip through new territory  has since shown that in ages gone by  nature prepared here the ideal conditions for deposition of mineral wealth,  and also did some fine topographical  engineering to afford means for winning the ores.  Conditions spoicen of by Dr. Dawson  were readily recognized ten years ago  by M. K. Rodgers when he arrived on  the ground and bonded the Nickel  Plate group. \ This marked the beginning of a new era for the Similkameen,  and with the work of development and  the subsequent extraction of values,  Hedley became the main centre of population for the district���������the pay office,  the entrepot, the town of the full  dinner-pail.  Extent and Value  of Hedley's  Mineral  Field.  While preliminary reports published  in government blue books by Mr.  Charles Camsell, who was in charge of  the party from the geological survey  which spent two years studying the  geology and ore deposits of the camp,  has made some reference to the extent  of mineralization, it is well known  that Mr. Camsell has modified his first  impressions on that subject and concurs in the view of a much wider area  of pay values than that which his  work at first covered.  The area, can be roundly stated to  extend at least eight miles north of  Hedley, 7 miles south, 7 or 8 miles ea.st  and 5 miles west.  Mr. Camsell refers to the camp as  tho greatest producer of gold alone of  any camp in British Columbia.  Mr, M. K. Rodgers has spent many  years and travelled many thousand  miles up and down the continent looking for mines, examining and sampling  everything offered him, and has frankly volunteered the statement that "nowhere between Alaska and Mexico  does he know of any fifteen miles of  undeveloped territory that will sample  equal to tho fifteen miles of which the  Nickel Piatt; is the centre." This is  indeed a. very strong testimonial from  Mr. Rodgers and carries a wealth of  meaning to those who have money to  invest, whether in mineral lands, real  estate or business ventures. Assuming  this to be true (and of its truth there  is no reasonable ground for doubt) the  possibilities for:Hedley are enormous;  for with so wide extent of pay ground  with vast ore bodies,/ the values of  which range from low .grade, to medium and (in spine few spots where; special agencies for .^''.concentration'/'' of  values have been at work) to high  grade, there is only one outcome to be  expected and'that is the existence here  at an early date of a busy, prosperous  mining town of several thousand inhabitants.  What Hedley Has To Offer.  Not always has nature been so kind  as to locate her treasure vaults where  the conditions for living are so pleasant. Often rich mining regions have  brought together large population  where the clirnate is unbearable and  natural conditions for sanitation such  that the town has scarcely started until the inevitable harvest of a perilous  death rate is being reaped./"'' But in  Hedley it is a well-known fact that  even in the absence of the commonest  precautions in the way of sanitation  there is no town in the district has so  clean a health bill; for while evei-y -���������  other place shows the existence"'��������� more  or less of typhoid, Hedley has been  absolutely free from this scourge. The  reason for this is obvious. The town  is built on an immense gravel bed believed by geologists to be of many  hundred feet in thickness with a large  swift-flowing river at her door and a ,  steady easy slope of the townsite towards the river of about 5%, making  the future question of sewage disposal  the simplest possihle, by means of sewer and septic tanks. In the water supply there are no death-breeding wells  but a system of waterworks providing  pure running water from mountain  streams.  While these conditions .mean, so  much for the health of the town they  also may mean much for its industrial  advancement. The task of winning  values from the immense ore deposits  in the vicinity precludes the idea of  depending upon the present tramway  system of ore haulage, and the near  future will in all probability see the.  inauguration of a comprehensive plan  for tunnelling the mountain, and thus  permit of handling lar-ge quantities of  ore. at minimum cost. To this end the  Similkameen river will be harnessed so  as to provide ample power for operating the various properties in the camp,  and when this is accomplished, Hedley  will have come to her own.  What Has Already Been Accomplished.  When Mr. Rodgers took hold of the  Nickel Plate, less than ten years ago,  not $50 worth of work had been done  on it. There we're.'no roads for the  transportation of supplies to the. mine,  and these had to be built. The colossal  task of overcoming these difficulties  had to be tackled by the one concern  which had undertaken to make this a  producing camp, but the sequel has  shown that the mineral wealth exist-  ant here, justified it all. When people  who are disposed to be exacting ask  why the opening up of the camp has  not been more general,- and why other  properties are not developed to the  same extent as the Nickel Plate, they  should also in fairness admit that it is  a wonder that so much has been done  in the face of such disadvantage as the  remoteness from railways.  Two Millions in Bullion Taken Out.  While no definite figures have been  given, out as to the total bullion production from this camp, sufficient  data, directly and indirectly, is obtainable to warrant the statement that by  the. end of 1008 two million dollars in  gold will be the output, and there is  greater probability of the. veal amount  exceeding that sum than in falling  short of it. What the district has been  living on may be learned from the fact  that the outlay in wages and other  things necessary to produce this a-  mount of bullion" has provided sustenance not only to the people of Hedley  but the whole valley.  This being tho record of one mine, a  faint idea is obtained of what the town  is to be when there are half a dozen  or  more. THE   HEPLEY;   GAZETTE,   OCTOBER 8, 1908.

John Love left for Phoenix on Monday morning to take over the drug  business which he purchased there two  weeks ago. The store in Hedley is in  charge of Mr. Turn bull, late of Nelson.  Mr. Davies, of Portland, Oregon,  was in town Sunday on his way back  to the coast. Mr. Davies is a mine  operator who was sent up to instal a  two stamp prospecting mill on Bear  Creek and make mill tests.  ��������� C. A. Crawford, who has for years  been auditor for the Daly estate, came  in on Wednesday of last week, and  will he engaged for two or three weeks  with the accounts of the Daly Reduction Co. and Yale Mining Co.  Last week, a man named A. Jennings, was arrested at Kettle Falls in  Washington State. He had been,  shadowed by B. 0. officials, and is said  to have boasted to a woman in Kettle  Falls that he killed Thomet.  Jack Gillan came down from Granite Creek last week and has re-opened  the, bottling works to make up a stock  of iron brew, siphon soda, and other  bar trimmings for the local hotel trade.  It looks like old times to see him  around again.  The Gazette had a pleasant visit on  Tuesday from Duncan Ross, Ex-M. P.,  and his travelling "companion,  G.  A.  R.,G., Shier returned on Friday from  Spokane accompanied by his wife and  son from Vancouver whom he met in  Spokane, and who 'will remain for a  few  weeks.  Mr. A. J.

They expect shortly to leave  on a trip to eastern Canada and New  York state, returning to the coast  about Christmas.  F. A. Ross, general manager of the  Daly Reduction Co. and Yale Mining  Co. returned last week from a business  trip to the coast. During his absence  Mr. Ross was laid up for awhile with  a touch of congestion of the lungs, due  to an open window in his berth on  the sleeper, but getting prompt attention he made a rapid recovery.  Wm. Matthew was brought down  from the Nickel Plate last week with  what appears to be a mild attack of  typhoid. The circumstance should  give occasion for examination' into  sanitary conditions up on the-hill, or  the experience of Phoenix which is  pretty similarly situated might be repeated. The proverbial ounce of prevention is always in order.  J. F������. Royer has sold out his livery,  business at Keremeos and the stage to  ���������Hedley to D. J. Innis. This will mean  the cutting out of the second stage between Hedley and Keremeos, for  which there was never any real need  as any excess passenger traffic over  what one stage could accommodate  could always be taken care, of by  specials which were run at the regular-  stage fare.  The 1908 edition, of the ,De.sbarats  Newspaper Directory has just'been.re?  ceived. It is full of'interesting matter  to newspaper men and business men  generally, particularly to those who  are advertising on contemplate an advertising campaign. The information  regarding'the newspapers and other  publications in the Dominion is particularly full, complete and up to date.  The increase in circulation of the different periodicals since the last issue  of this Directory, is proportionately  very much greater than the increase  in population during the same time,  indicating that Canadians are becoming more and more a reading and  well-informed people. The Desbarats  Advertising Agency having outgrown  the premises formerly occupied by  them, have their present location at  Victoria Square, their offices being  probably the largest and best equipped  of any agency in the Dominion.

The opening of the new Presbyterian church at Keremeos on Sunday  last was a very successful affair, both  services having an attendance of 75.  Rev. G. A. Wilson, of Vancouver,  Superintendent of Missions, preached  at both services, and Keremeos musical talent, which is of an exceptionally high order, lent harmony to the. exercises. The new church, which is  comfortable, commodious and well situated, is a monument to the zeal of  the pastor, Rev. A. II. Cameron. On  Sunday next, Rev. It. W.

Continued from Pnerc One  most  time on the question of Asiatic  . exclusion contending that.the Laurier  government had been right in its actions in this matter and the provincial  government wrong.   He arraigned W.  J. Bowser who  he declared should he  ungowned by the law society for conduct   unbecoming  a practising barrister, and said that Bowser took good  care not to 'meet him.   He expressed  the belief that the Laurier government  would be returned, and asked the electors for their support on that ground..  The speech occupied nearly two hours,  towards' the end of which people began  to straggle out of the hall,  and at its  close fully  half of them were, moving  towards the door before the. 'chairman  asked if anyone else wanted to speak.  notes.   '���������-  Out of his own mouth Duncan Ross  stands convicted of the charge of being  an enemy of this province in the matter of "Better,Terms."  Smelter Hat and the railway fight of  1905 were two topics carefully avoided  by the speaker before a Hedley -'audience. It .may have been-m-udent hut-  it was disappointing.  Mr. Ross made the mistake that too  many reckless speakers sometimes  make. He forgot that "peopleread the  papers nowadays, and are able to size  up distortions :of well known facts.  A few plugs of tobacco that cost a  little more than what the public pay  for their tobacco was all that was  wrong with the equipment of the  Artie.    So says Mr. Ross.  When comparisons were made "of  the volume of business in particular  years, why were the years of the Mc-  Keuxie regime not compared with any  five years between 1S7S and 1896?  Duncan Ross before this electors with  a general election two yeai-s distant,  and Duncan Ross seeking the support  of the free and independent on the eve.  of a general election, are quite different pereonages. In thelattei-case he  is more civil and altogether a much  milder mannered, man.  When the Conservatives were, administering the Dominion land laws in  the Northwest, the United States authorities were dividing the attention  of land seekers in offering unsettled  land in the Dakotas; when the Liberals got hold of the Dominion lands the  Dakota lands had been disposed of. It  didn't occur to Mr. Ross to mention  this fact when comparing the number  of homestead entries., Neither did he  say anything about the way the Toronto Globe, and London Advertiser  were boosting the Dakota land laws,  and helping to send Canadian land-  seekers to Dakota instead of settling  in their own country.
