It goes on to speak of send-  ���������ing delegates to this convention who  leave "with the, avowed intention , of  getting what they want--tbe. nomination of Tom Taylor/" "Otherwise,"  it shrieks, "there will be trouble brewing." It will be interesting to see if  the convention submits to such intimidation, especially' as it is further  thryat'eiied that il'he dot'f< not get ike  nomination "lie will be asked to r'liii as'  an independent supporting Cot ion's"  leadership and 'the provincial parly.''

holds by   virtue of  seeming favoritism
ami political   treachery will, it is to he
hoped,   leave   him    forever    when the

if* -*,uii;c:iently indicative of   the imi'ii to
damn him politically.    It reeks -of 'his
treachery,   speaks   of 'his opportunism
and   everywhere   of   Ural    unbounded
conceit   which   makes   co-operation    a
thing impossible vvith him.  Ho'stands,
indeed,  having   icgard   to' his   recent
political    history,   a   splendid  application of thai' character described by the
discerning   Psahnifet:���"He   hath pub

Loudly ni-lirming   his  allegiance to the

Wh'at i.s party where country and progress are at stake? Conservatives and
Liberals alike owe it lo their common
country to ignomiuiously eject from
the undeserved position he now occupies that great disturber and champion
of unrest Premier Martin.      It is not

true that he has the cause of Liberalism in his keeping in ,tliis Province;
we have disowned the man, and when
it comes to meeting our Tory friends
in party fight we will ''have champions

our standard to victory or preserve it
unsullied in defeat. We ask our independent Conservative friends .iu this

, Oun" remark on readirfg the Herald's
opening plea'for party line politics on
Friday last was "the creature is at its
dirty tricks again," and wc smiled as
we followed its simple argument remembering how .we " watched its
smoke" as it" made its contemptible
and disgraceful flop to the Turner
government prior to last election. Its
just trie same, old smoke this time but
if, anything a little thinner. ' Tts'reasons for coming to the party line con
elusion begin with the downfall of 'the
Turner government two years ago,
yet later it daubs Mr. .Turner with the
same brush   it   applies  to Mr. Semlin.
rl       '   l
Poor old Herald ! time was, and not so
verv long  ago   either, when  it repurli-
n        n, ^       1 1 l        (
ated party lines at any price asui'e;iu-
ingless and inapplicable. We remember how we tmplauded 'sincerelv one of
its very earliest expressions on ithe
subject which was " The crying need
of this province is'a clear and capable
'administration, and no person or paper-
that is a real friend of British Columbia will care to run the risk of wrecking so desirable a result on the rock of
rabid partizanship."
And again: "This province has
been rim long enough for the benefit
of ;i little clique-at Victoria. Il, is
high time it was administered for the
benefit of the. people. Surely this is a
basis,of a programme on which we can
all work 'together' without'lucrging in
party names which are rapidly lo'ing
all meaning even in Dominion politics.*'
As a final answer' to its latest
somer-auk. we ask =-it to, turn to
its previous statement: " So me people are very,anxious to see our provin-,
cial pi iii tics run on party lines, which
never had any meaning in provincial
politics and are gradually ceasing' r.o
have ."ny .even" in Dominion aflairs.
The He.rald has y^tr- to learn of any
solid reason why this province should
cnivluct its n-.':<t election on a dividing

11 THE KOOTESAY MAIL.  XK>O00O0C0OC>0000<X>^  A PATENT " ' %  ELOPEMENT.  fSOOOOO<>0<X>C>CK>0<>OOOC<>e  "A visitor, Jabez."  Old Farmer Smith' rose from tho din-  ' ner table ' and  picked  up  his hat from  thc side of the chair. fl  "Who is it, wife?" he asked.  "A young man," she replied.  ������ The 'farmer's Up" set tight as he wit  , nessed a glance which passed between  his wife and his daughter.  ��������� "I understand," he said severely, with  a determined look at the anxious,face of  the girl���������"that London chap, Leslie  Austin." ,     ' ,  ' '    "Yes, father." she replied.  "I'll'settle bis business for him." And  Farmer Smith strode'into ,the parlor, his  heavy boors sounding a dealhknoJJ to the  faint hopes in the sinking heart'of pretty, winsome Alice Smith. "So you're  here again, ehV"  ,' The brusque interrogatory did not seem  to crush the courteous, handsome young  man,' who arose'and faced the farmer.  "Yes,  Mr. Smith," was his reply.  "And ou the same old errand, I suppose r       ��������� .      '-   '     , ,      ���������  ' "Yes,  sir.   . I  came to  ask  your consent"��������� ,     .'   ,  ,  "You can't hare it!" interrupted Fcrm-.  0 er Smith savagely. . "Alice ain't/ going  to marry you or anybody else just yet."  "But time"���������  ���������  "You've heard me, Mr. Leslie Austin.  You can't have my daughter."'  ���������     "1 love her, Mr. Smith." ' "     '     '  . "Nonsense! She's too young to know  her own mind.1 I have,said my say, and  the harvest hands are waiting. Good  day, sir!" '"     \    . u >      '        '  Under such determined resistance Leslie Austin retreated.    He'bit his lips angrily as' lie   walk-id   rapidly   dowu   the  ,   road to'the village hotel. ,  "It's a shame." decided his friend, Rob  Towuscnd, as he heard the disappointed  lover's story.    ��������� "  '"Wee think so much of each other,"  'murmured Leslie mournfully.  ' "You ain't going to give up this way,  are you?" asked, Bob.  LeslioJJooked up inquiringly.  "What else can I doV" he asked.  "Marry her," said Bob.  "Tier father won't consent*."    '       c  " , "Suppose he don't."  Leslie started, but shook,' his head  slowly.      ,   &' i, " [  "I know what you're hitting at, Eob���������  i  an' elopement."   ��������� 5  "You're right." ������  "But it could not bo."  "Why not7" '    ','  '    "Because Alice is  bound  to-obey her  father, and I am, too, for that matter."  Bob scowled impatiently. ���������  1 "Nonsense!" he aspirated nngriJy.  "See here, Leslie. If you were tbe irresponsible, chap'old Smith thinks you, I'd  hesitate, but you ain't. You're an honest, well to do lawyer, respectably connected and only laboring under a prejudice ou tlie farmer's part that because  Neighbor Jones' girl married a worthless  man from'" the metropolis all such  matches must end similarly."  "Granted." r ' c,  "Therefore, being in the right and the  old   farmer   being   in   one   of   his   mad  moods, I'd outwit him."'  '    "How 7"  The query was encouraging. ,. "  > ' "Run away with Alice," said Bob.   ,,  "1 can't." ,   s  "Why not 7" '  '  "Her father watches her too closely."  "That's the only reason, is itV"      '  ,  "I believe so.'"  "  "She's willing?"  "Presumably."* ,  l ,  "And you?"��������� -    (  "Oh. Bob, you're talking nonsense! I  might as well go back to London and  wait until Mr. Smith changes his mind."  "And let some other fellow have Alice?  You're a brave lover!"  , Leslie was despoudent.  "I have a plan, if you're plucky enough  to follow it out," buggested Bob.  Leslie's face grew expectant at the  hint.  "What is it?" he asked.  "Listen."  What Bob told the discouraged lover  need not be repeated. The subsequent  nets of the conspirators afford a sutli-  cicnt explanation.  It was the next day (hat faithful Bob  reconnoitered the ground and found that  Farmer Smith had indeed taken due precaution to prevent' his (laughter meeting  or running a,way with Leslie.  But Bob managed to get a letter to the  fair prisoner ��������� u letter after reading  which secretly she manifested her acquiescence to its contents by au intelligent nod to the messenger.  It was the afternoon of the day following, just as Farmer Smith had sent  his boys to the town with a load of potatoes and was seated, resting for an hour  or two, on the front porch, with Alice industriously sewing by his side, that a vehicle driven by a single .occupant came  down the road.  Old Jabez looked  in  profound amaze-  ment as the vehicle came to a stop.    It  was a  kind  of skeleton wagon,  wilh a  double seat, and behind it was attached  a small rubber hose,'with several wheels  distributed hero and there near the axle.  "In .the n.'iaie of wonder,  what have  wc here?" he said as he walked to the  gate.  The driver sprang down.  "Jabez Smith?" he asked.  The farmer nodded a dignified Mioenfc*  ������iltle dreaming Unit the lie.".i(led strnn^or  was IVob Townserid in disguise.  "I leain from inquiries in tne village  that   .vou    are   quile   a   scientist,    Mr.  Science, ol which old .Inbox knew nothing,  but directed nnicli. was 1"|������ sal-cut  joint- pottered by. tbfl stranger s worn  ^^^V^^-^f*^^^/-^ ' ^ TUT* -^-zr  feil-.i^JA'ih'a-sv.*vi-������,---7iyr.-.,^^':.^-V^-i     *\t  he replied pompr.**.--!*-.  "I  ;/(-.:. n 1 know sir.ii thing about it."  "I   have-   come,   .Mr.   Si'jilh."   --.li'!   lh"  stranTer.   "to   show   you   a   ue*.'.*   mor-vc-  power for bii.vrai.os>.'' ,  The farmer's fate fell.  "A   patent   right!"   he   muttered.     "1  "don't  want to'buy  one," lie said, aloud,  turning to re-enter the house.  "Buy one!" replied tlie stranger. "Tin.**  is not for sale, sir." dec-hired  Bob,  with'  quiet dignity.    "I desire your opinion as  a .scientist in regard lo the priiiciplt-h involved <., in''.its   construction -and 'opera-'  lion." .. ���������  The fanner's face grew pleased again.  "Happy to give it. sir.   ,11 1 can be ut  any  u..e  to  lhe  world  at large'by my  knowledge of science"1'-  "Or make your fellow being.-" happy,  you're ready to sir cri lice your valuable  time���������-eh.  Mr. HmithV" ii-sinuiited  Bob.  "Certainly, sir."  '   "Yon   eaii"-yo;i 'can,  believe  me.  sir,"  asseverated     the     wicked    rco:!"apir������;pr.,  earnestly, and  truthfully.    "Have you a"  ral-oV"' ' :  "Yes."  "I'll help you bring it out- here, and  we*il make a trial trip of this wonderful  machine."  fA few.minutes later the farmer's hay-  rake was brought out. Bob made much  ado of fastening it by a rope to the'1 rear  of the vehicle, and lhe farmer watched  him curiously ns he turned the wheels  and adjusted the horse to what he called  'position.   >' .  i "This hose is an airbrake,, sir. Tha  idea is, if wo can make it'do so, to hare  tbe rake operate as u^ual. The airbrake  might offer a resistance to the ground,  push forward the, front vehicle and ventilate the hay. ' Man aud bnite creation  demand air, why not vehicles'.'" (   ,  "Quite, true." replied Jabez, somewhat  dubious and perplexed over the apparent  u'solessness of the machine.  ,  ."Utility  ,  and      no'hiu-frngibilty,'    Mr.  Smith," rattled on Bob recklessly.   '"Tlie  hypotenuse  of  tho curve of the diameter of the, axle, you perceive, has a'circumferential "'effect   upon, tho   spheroid  concavity of rhe brake.    You will understand those terms, Mr. Smith, as a mathematician'and "scientist:    AILready?"  Farmer Smith, overcome by tho lofty  words," obeyed mutely as Bob requested  Jiim to get'into,tbe rake seat.   '  "I'll drive the preliminary vehicle." ex-,  plained Bob, vvith a serene chuckle at  the fun of his oratory, "and you will'  watch the 'effect of the airbrake���������if the  ' friction of the wheels generate air���������over  yonder stretch of meadow. By the way,  is one of your hands around?" ' ;  "They've gone to town," replied Jabez  glumly.    '       ,   , .  He had a-vague consciousness that the  stranger was a charlatan,? for he could'  not for the life of him see what possible  use the clumsy combination of wheels,  and hose could be. '    * '  ".Ah, there's a young lady .''Your daughter/ Mr. Smith, Is presume?" said Bob,  raising his bat politely. "There must be  .more" weight on the seat: of the front vehicle., If you'll let her take her'seat beside .rae in the interests of science, Mr.  Smith?" i ' -  He almost lost his dignified gravity us  he saw the suspicious look on the old  farmer's face.  The last words, "in the interests of science," however, decided Mr. Smith. "  "Jump in. Alice!" he said desperately-.  The stranger whipped up 'the horse.  Old Jabez, in tho rake seat behind, clung  on wildly as the horse,was driven briskiy.  lie almost fell forwardi as there was a  break caused by the rope parting. Bob  had deftly cut it vvith a knife.  "Hold on! Hold on!" cried old Jabez  as the new motor "power vehicle dashed  forward.  lie stared blankly, as it traversed the  field, made a sharp turn to the road and,'  gracefully' rounding a curve in the highway, 'disappeared from view.-  ���������What did it mean? The boys had taken the horses to town, and he could not  start in pursuit, but he grew white as he  discerned a fuel: '  -  He bad been tricked! .. ������  ' lie had cooled down considerably when,  at nightfall, a carriage drew up before  the gate.  He looked grimlv up from beneath his  shaggy" eyebrows as Leslie Austin and  pretty, blushing Alice came forward."  Boh, following them, was the first to  speak/  "The new motor power took up a' uew  passenger down . the road, Farmer  Smith." he said slyly. "You wanted to  make mankind happy, neighbor. You've'  done it."  J a lira made a  feint to declare hostilities then and there against the conspirator.-,  but  lie saiiU  buck, disarmed,  in his.  chair ai lhe gentle voice of his wife said  pleadingly:  "Fnrgive them, father. They are so  happy!"  And Fanner Smith had not the heart  to say uay.���������Chicago Times-HeraM.  ,^. .gi    iu. /' j ,i 1*.;, r  r>(\n  (m J S i am  i -  Tram-Continental Route  -  'fQmpk"Tiiae!     , /  /**������)              ���������������      -pa                ���������             ������  First  Class and Tourist Sleepers  X  T!ra.-][ii  ti  ������  S  ti  From Oeean -to Oeeairj  Tickuts Is-M-fld Through   and Baggage  Cheeked to Destination."
