Col. Albert M. Dewey of Spokane, president of the Okanogan Electric Railway Company, incorporated  under the laws of Washington with a  capital stock of $3,000,000, and an  authorized bond i?*sue of $1,000,000,  ���������announces that the sale of bonds is  practically accomplished, and that  work will soon begin. The line and  equipment will cost $2,621,280.  The company has a fifty-four year  franchise,   right-of-way and   charter  for   a   steam or electiic   railway of  eighty miles from Nighthawk,  where  it will connect with the Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern  extension  of the  Great Northern i ailway,"1 to  the head  of navigation on  the Columbia liver,  where connection will  be made with  river boats and the  main line of the  Gieat Northern, giving- its outlets  to  Spokane on the east, and Puget sound  points on  the  west.     The main line  ���������will pass through Loomis Okanogan,  Ophir, Malett, Brewster and the Q. S.  mines, near which a smeltei   will  be  built, and' there  will  be  branches  to  Conconully,    Oiuak,    Riverside    and  other desirable points.    ,  HIDDEN CREEK  MINES.

Ottice, Greenhouses and Seedliouse:  3010 Westminster Road,  VANCOUVER,  Ip/WAa^  Without honest criticism this world  would be a cipher in the sum of time  and we a lot of sap-heads.     Criticism  'honestly'.-maintained,   and  conscientiously directed is the finest tonic a  community can have.     The Man of  Nazareth   recognized this fully, and  his words to the Pharisees, priests and  scribes of his day,���������-men who put up  with no criticism and ruthlessly brushed   aside all who dared to question  their authority,���������indicate' that the no  criticism policy was not his policy.  ".,- The thing is, not to be afraid of criticism   nor to hate it,  but rather to  court it and profit by it.   The author-  afraid of criticism is a "dub." the actor  who cannot stand criticism is a false  alarm.   Progressive men in all vocations court ci-iticism.   They recognize  in the severest critic their best friend.  It is the man   of  small   calibre that  looks   upon   criticism as opposition.  The critic is destructive only to  those  things   and conditions which are of  themselves destructive.    Silence criticism and you take out of the community its best impulse in the daily inarch  forward.     Criticism  is not  chastisement.     It is  the goad  that inspires  men to do things, not dream them.  Among those who came down  from  the Goose Bay mines this  week were  William Hanna and James Mack, both  good minei.s, who are well acquainted  in Kootcuay and the  Boundary,  says  the Prince Rupert Empire.    Both say  the showing at Goose Bay are wonderful, and that if there is not a big mine  theie then surface showings are deceptive.    The. ore has been exposed by  trenches and  by stripping,  and   they  estimate the   deposit or  ledge to he  ovei 200 feel, wide.     It has  not  been  sunk on.    One tunnel was started, but  surface    works showed so  much ore  that the management decided to begin  a tunnel lower down, which  will .give.'  over 450 feet of over-head stoping, and  the-work of facing up for that tunnel  is now   under way and  will soon  be  finished.     At present nearly all   the  working i'oice is engaged  at grading  for a surface tramway from   the.  mine  to    navigable    water,.a    distance   of  about a mile and a half, and in putting  in a pipe line for the compressor plant.  About 80 men were at work, but some  ��������� of them have quit,  not cm ing  to do  outside  work  in  wet  weather-.     The  wages paid are  $3 and $3.50 a day,  with $6 a week for board.    There is no  Sunday work.   ^   ELECTION LAW FARCE.  SERIOUS MILL ACCIDENT.  West Has Foot Badly Mangled in  Gear  of Conveyors. f  '  Canada has stringent election  laws  The legulations look  well  on   papery  but in'practice the whole law is a  big  farce.    The law  makes  it  an  offense  punishable by a fine ot* $200 for any  printing house  to print  any matter  upon the election, which does not bear  the impi hit of the printer.     And  yet  the dead walls about town aie plastered over with highly colored show bills  sent   out   by   the Liberal  campaign  managers,  which are  neither educational  nor reasonable.     The   election  law also makes it a misdemeanor, and  imposed a fine of $200 upon  anyone  posting   this    anonymous'' campaign  stuff, and yet our good Liberals-in the  dead of night think nothing of plastering the town with it.     A  campaign  booklet-gotten  up in   the shape and  style of Little Bo-peep and  eirculatiM  anonymously, is anothes bright Liberal dodge.    All of which is-  contrary  to law.    Just what the party  can  expect to gain by the circulation of .this  sort of campaign  rot is beyond our  comprehension.   The printer who put  it out was evidently so much ashamed  of it that he would not put his imprint  on it.    The very nature  of it  presupposes a very low intellectuality.     If  there were any number  of  Canadian  voters who could be. influenced by this  sort of thing, we  should  be  ashamed  of them.���������Walker's Weekly.  On Sunday about 9,p. nr. W. West,  a young Englishman, who was working on the conveyors in the Daly Reduction Go's, stamp mill had his foot  caught in the gearing, and so badly  mangled that it will have, to be amputated. .How the accident..occurred  is not known for he was working alone  and his condition is too, serious for  anyone to disturb him by making inquiries merely- to satisfy curiosity.  The first that was known of it was  when he managed to make his way on  one foot in a semi-fainting -fcondition  oii -to the battery'floor where the roar  of the stamps would'prevent him at- ,  tt acting attention. The first to notice  him was Patterson, who sent for A.  E. Hoi brook, superintendent of the  mill, who happened to be near.  Dr. McGregar was.immediately summoned" and was on the ground in a few  minutes after, making an examination  of the injury and also the condition.of  his patient, whom he found to be too  weak to stand the."shock' of {imputation.' He has been doing everything  that is in his power' to allay his  patient's suffering and bring 'him  through-if possible. It is reported  that the injured man has had one or  more attacks'of hemorrhage of the  lungs since the accident occurred- and  this condition seriously handicaps the  doctor in his efforts, to save the man's  life.' - - -:..--;.,;^-v...... -  MARTIN BURRELL  IN  FRATERNITY HALL, HEDLEY   _ ON   OCTOBER 30th  At 8 o'clock p-rn.

Tho returns to hand while incomplete indicate that Laurier's majority  while a little less than in the last parliament is more f evenly distributed  through tlits Dominion and not  centred in the province of Quebec as  before. West of the Great Lakes, the  Conservatives have the best of it.  British Columbia has witnessed the  most general turnover of any, and had  the elections been held on the same day,  one solitary Liberal would be all thsrfc  would have been left of the once  vaunted "Solid Seven."  Little has been learned as yet of individual content-, lv,-it it is known that  Cowan has won Vancouver; Taylor  captured Westminster; llalph Smith  was bowled out by Haw thorn thwni to,  and first reports stated that Temple-  man was down and out with Barnard  five votes ahead of him. This narrow majority however could not last  for the half of one recount with a  Liberal returning officer. .  Winnipeg was captured by Ilaggar-t,  conservative ; Laurier aud McGivern  carried-Ottawa and Bordou won his  seat in Halifax. That will mean a bye-  election in Carleton, which is salVlv  Conservative.  Sifton won the Brandon election.  The vote by proviiu-es was as follows :  Soc.  Lib.

At their present rate of going they should have, it ready for  yardage steel in about four more  weeks.  Fine diversified reading is the leading feature of the November number  of "Rod and Gun and Motor Sports  in Canada," published by W. J. Taylor,  at Woodstock, Ont. The delights of  camping, canoeing, fishing, hunting  arid mountaineering are dwelt upon in  stories which give the added touches  of personal experiences to the pleasant  pictures of enjoyment each one presents. Particularly notable are papers  on "The Deer of New Brunswick" by  that veteran guide, Adam Moore;  "Deer Farming for Profit," a.sumniary  of inquiries on this subject made by  the United States Government; and  "Wild Rice. Growing in Nova Scotia."  Everyone will enjoy reading the stories, "Running the Rapids with an  Amateur" by L. W. Bin gay ; "My Experiences as  a Bear Hunter"  bv Dr.  *  Henzel; "How I missed a   Moose and  Deer and shot a Wolf," by Jack Miner;  and the friendly challenge by Mr. J.  A. Shade, who believes, when all  points are taken into consideration,  that he has the finest moose head yet  taken out of New Brunswick. This  summary by no means includes the.  whole of the wide field eoveied.  Diversions are made into many paths  each orre of which must appeal to  many readers. With the various departments, the wealth of material in-  eluded in this number of the. magazine  is surprisingaud includes contributions  that must appeal to all lovers of out  door life.  The following warm appreciation  of the Conservative candidate, in  Yale-Cariboo appears in the October  number of the Canadian Horticulturist, an entirely non-political publication.    It says:  "More horticulturists should be in  Parliament and in our Legislative  Assemblies. There is need for men  who know something about fruit  growing and kindred pur-suits. The  enacting of legislation that has to do  with the progress of our fruit industry requires the. support of men acquainted with the business.  "It is with pleasure, therefore,   that  we learn   of    the   nomination   of  Mr.  Martin  Burrell  to  contest  the-   Yale-  Cariboo     constituency     in   Liu-  next  Dominion election.    Apart from  politics (and we do  not  know   tire   party  he supports), Mr. Buirell is  eminently  fitted  for a  place in-   Parliament rro  matter to which side of politics he belongs.    His long experience as a  fruit  grower,   the.  excellent  work  that he  did at the Dominion Fruit Conference  in 1900, the manner in  which  he   performed   his    duties  as   representative  for British Colunrbiaat the fruit shows  of England and the greatjnterest that  he takes in   the  development   of  the  fruit industry of Canada,   make   him  highly deserving of the confidence of  the electors.      Furthermore,   the   retirement   of Mr.    E. D. Smith, M. P.  the  Conservative  member for-  South  Wentworth,   Ontario,   and   the   fact  that Mr.  A.  A.  Wright,  M.  P.,  the  Liberal member for South  Renfrew,  will not   be  a candidate at   the   next  election,   both of whom    have  done  valuable work in   the  interets of  our  fruit industry, demand the election of  one or more men to continue the work.  Mr. Donald McPhail came down  from Nicola last week and will remain  for a, week or two visiting Mv. and Mrs  Ten-ill. Mr. McPhail's Hedley friends,  are pleased to see him back again.

It is less  than  a year since Laurier was loudly  applauded at a Board of Trade  banquet in Toronto for saying  that he would not be  stamped-,  ed    by   British  Columbia into  Asiatic exclusion; and the sentiment that called forth that  applause is still there.    It should  have been reckoned with in the  contest.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  WHAT  WAS THE CAUSE  The triumphs of-photography  a're seen in the feat of the high;  ly-imaginative camera, which  snapped a snap of Duncan's  new ethereal post office in  Vernon.  Children iircoften promised a .nice  picture bobk if they will - be good.  Last weelc's Okiihagjin has a nice- picture, on its front-page, (if the new post  office thut Vernon is to get if it will  support Duncan Ross. All Yide-  Cariboo will watch what Vernon is  going to do about it and will he. able  to tiike Vernon's measure its the vv-  of what its people will do on November 12th.  If for no other reason than its foul  record in Die Yukon and its treatment  of Rev. Dr. Pringlc, the Laurier Government, deserved to go down to defeat on Monday last. Dr. Pi-ingle's  letter of Oct. 8th telling the foul story  of the conspiracy to ruin him, is at  all events enough to show the people  eif British Columbia that they have  reason to be proud of their action in  February 1907 when thev turned down  a party led by such .men as Ex-Judge  Henderson and Billy McTnnes. The  Christian church has never'shown out  grander in anything that has happened here ih^the west than the fight put  up by Dr. Pringle in his denunciation  of vice in high pla ees.  #  m6  THE BANK OF  1908  METEOROLOGICAL.  The cause of Ontario's behavior on M nday last may be  sought in :i good many directions but ��������� ill be difficult to find.  The moral turpitude on the  nart of the electors of that province which it implies is not  pleasant to contemplate, for it  shows that they are prepared  to condone the pilfering from  the public. treasury that has  been going on to such an alarm  ing degree as'has  been proven  in the public records and the  public acc.t i imts.    Thestrangest  feature about it and one which  looks   very   suspicious is that  the    bettor   class   of   Liberals  shared the* opinion of Conservatives that a great turnover in  public sentiment in   that province was to be expected.    Some  of these \\ ere prepared to  concede   over   fifty   seats   to   Mr.  Borden, and that it fell so far  short of the sixty or sixty-five  that   the    Conservatives   were  counting on, would  look  very  much as if means were employed of which these better class  Liberals would be kept in  the  dark.   This of course may have  no foundation in fact and the  end may be due to  some  other  cause unexplained.     There is,  however, another factor which  may have queered the electors  of Ontario.    That is their utter  lack   of   sympathy   with    the  Asiatic    Exclusion    movement  which occupies so large a -place  in the public eye in this x>rov-  . ince,    and   itv is    questionable  whether it was good  tactics to  seek to give it the same prominence with people who could  only judge  of the question in  the abstract and had no opportunity   of  knowing by object  lesson any of the  effects either  real   or   probable    that    must  follow    the     introduction     of  Asiatics in large  numbers  into  this province.    It   is  like butting  the head against a stone  wall to talk to  those  old self-  sufficient  blue law manipulators, who may be  perfectly sincere in their views, that there is  socially   and    industrially    an  i impassible   gulf   between    the  European     and    the     Asiatic.  For nenrly two  centuries  they  and their  forbears  have   been  If it were known how much  of the misrepresentation ap4  pea ring in the Vernon Okanagan these days is to be attributed to ignorance of public questions and how much to the habit  of prevarication,' it would be  easier to tell how much blame  is to be meted out for each  week's dose of mendacity.  Now that the electors in Ontario and other eastern provinces have said that they dont  care whether B. C. is white,  yellow or brown, there is all  the greater necessity for Yale-  Cariboo and Kootenay re-affirming their determination of-  keeping, it white by electing  Burrell and Goodeve.

Surely Parker Williams does  not expect to find anybody in  the Similkameen riding green  enough to believe a statement so manifestly false as this  is. If this were true he is the  worst enemy that trades unionism could possibly have, for in  this he practically gives labor  unions a slap in the face by  telling unionists that their unionism was no good and had  accomplished nothing for tho  betterment of the wage-earn  er's condition. Worse than that,  he gives them to understand  that all their work and worry  in organizing labor for its own  protection had resulted only in'  loss to them since their condition was now worse than when  they began.

SUBSCRIBE FOR  THE   GAZETTE!  *'*(%���������������:, I',  ^ It  Mr. BunKfiLTj was born in England, and came to Canada over thirty  years ago, when ho engaged in the fruit-growing industry in the Niagara  peninsula in Ontaria-. In that province lie was recognized as an able  speaker on horticultural topics, and was one of the niostaceeptable lecturers at meetings of the farmer's institutes in each electoral riding of  that province. With the opening of the Boundary district he came to  British Columbia to engage in fruit-growing, and has since been recognized as an authority on that ipiestion, representing British Columbia  in England last winter. While identifying himself with the.' Conservative party he has never been a violent partisan, and stands for  planing politics on a higher plane. Such a man would make an ideal  representative for Yale-Cariboo.    Do yourself credit by voting for him !
