A Sweeping Victory  '|  Premier McBride and his government    have   been   vindicated,  fully,   openly ��������� and   unreservedly.  He has been vindicated, not by a  caucus of his party, not bya mere  majority   vote in parliament, but  by the country's highest tribunal  the vote   of. the people.     When  things appeared darkest  for - him  and rumors of political wrong-doing were being fasc circulated by  the  press,   he chose   not to take  shelter in a legislature where he  had a narrow majority, but out in  the broad open of public opinion  he challenged his enemies to meet  him. - His political past, his present, his future were at stake, but  . a servant of the   people he acknowledged himself,    and as that  servant he   awaited the people's  bidding.    When he decided on this  step there'were outward signs of  joy among his adversaries and they  felt that he would  be unequal to  the great case they would put up  against him;     Already they saw  his doom in .advance.     So sure  were they that the powerful array  of influences that were to combine  against him could not be withstood,  that like the parent who punishes  his child with sorrow, they affected  pain that duty laid  the cha������tening  task upon them.     In a body like  jackals atja'feast they moved upon  him.   They marshalled influences  . that, like a.:driving  storm swept  acroBS the   province.     From Ottawa where the  word   had gone  forth that' the '.'native son" as he  was    derisively   called   must;  he  .chastened, influences, some mercilessly powerful and some miserably  weak,   were sent west to educate,  to control,   aye even to corrupt  public opinion of which he placidly  awaited' a verdict.    Great corporate influences, affecting to be subtle  and sly,  but palpably brazen and  weak,  chagrined   that they   had  been unable to find him essayed to  influence his jury.    But unmoved  and with   implicit confidence he  stated his case to the people, calmly,  simply and definitely.    For thirty  days and nights the trial lasted.  His opponents sought to pile up  damning evidence of incompetence,  evidence of dishonesty, evidence of  corruption.      They   said  he had  been tricky and treacherous, that  he had despoihd tlie public estate  and given it away,   that bribery  had knocked at the doors of his  cabinet aud been admitted, that he  consorted with political profligates  and was allied with those who fain  would tear down the flag, that unfitness characterized   his 'government-and unrighteousness marked  its   administration.     They  summoned their slick-tongued ones to  tell this story to the patient jury,  summoned them from their deskH  at Ottawa, summoned them from  their offices in far Yukon in dead  of winter.   Men who had forsakeu  public  life,   were galvanized into  political   agitations,    taken  from  business, from administrative seats  from  the  judge'a.   bench, to convince   this    great    province-wide  people-jury of the enormity of this  man's and this ministry's crime of  daring to independedtly think and  act.    Every argument known to  clever men, every article resorted  to, by specialists in their line was  tried upon the jnry, and so persistently bad the work of impressing,  persuading, brow-beating the jury  been done, that when dawned the  morning of tho day on which the  verdict was to bo returned, thoughtful men even who believed in McBride and his government, awaited  fcbe day's close with distrust and  doubt. But saphistry sufficed not,  the'false cry of corruption convinced not, tho false plea of imbecility moved not. Foremost  among his prosecutors stood Mac-  donald, Mclunes, Henderson; Curtis, all lawyers, three of them ex-  lawyers, but called into the case to  win it. And where, are they today ? Macdonald survives to lead  his depleted minority in the house,  but the other three what of them ?  F-m- some of them doubtless the  kindly patronage of the Federal  government will provide, but the  people, the people of British Columbia flocked not thitherward with  the expected gifts;  The verdict spoken't t'i i silent  tones of a people's ballot set free  him accused of weakness aud  wrong. It said, "Back to your  cabinet, your government, your  country, j'ou tho accused, back to  your Bilent homes, you his accusers."  And so made stronger by the  tonic of a people's.commendation  of his work already done. Premier  McBride and his government return to power to carry forward as  Bafe and sound lines the administration of a growing country's public affairs. ,  With characteristic modesty Mr.  McBride will returu to the work he  had   eo    iudustriously, .conscientiously ,set himself,th������ regeneration  of the province, of  its finances, its  methods,   its  industrial   development.     He will not grow vain by  the people's verdict, rather will he  feel added responsibility because of  the new condition of thiugs.    New-  wisdom will come to hisplaus, new  vigor to his   administration.    He  may shed  no tears as he looks on  those of his adversaries whom tlie  people  bound  that   they  may  he  harmless,   but  he will   fuel in tin-  verdict given  a sunnnoiiB  to the  consecration  of   his   best thought  and service for his country.   A few  of his old-time friends have fallen  under public ban but from among  his supporters is to be found splendid material for the making of cabinets  and   the government of the  province      We congratulate   Mr.  McBrido   that we have seen that a  jury cannot be packed, the people  cannot bo stampeded in a storm,  and that   wuat   he   has done and  tried to do has been appreciated.  OltEENWOOn RIDING  There  were some   surprises in  Greenwood   riding.     The  Eholc  vote was a surprise to the Conservatives, where it was expected Mr.  Warren would have a small majority.     The Liberal vote at Eholt  was principally from outside points,  Grand  Forks,   Nelson aud other  places east.    The voters came in  on the west train, voted and went  back on  the cast bound. * For the  first time Greenwood city gave a  Conservative majority.   This was  partly owing to Mr. Warren's personal popularity, and partly to the  excellent work done by his committee.     The opening of the campaign    found   the,' Conservatives  without  an    organization.     This  will not occur in the future.    Although they had an uphill grind  from the start,  the Midway committee polled twelve more Conservative votes than tho central committee expected.    Rock Creek elected Mr.  Naden, only two Conservative   votes   being  polled at  that poiiit.    Tho other four were  scrutineers  and  election officials.  Mr. DyncB headed the poll in four  places, Mr. Naden in   three and  Mr.  Warren in one, Greenwood,  where all three candidates reside.  There   were four   spoiled ballots.  On one there were no  marks, on  two others names were written,aud  the fourth was a double for both  Dynes and Warren.    After the returns were all in the Liberals had  a, procession, headed by the band.  When' reports came in from the  coast and other parts of the province, ' the Conservatives   took the  streets and held the town till morning.     Although defeated at home  they acted like victors.    All federal officials in the district took an  active part in the camhaign.    J.  E. Brown,   the newly appointed  county court judge both  worked  and voted, as also did. the customs  officers.' This is,  of course, their  undoubted right, but it was felt by  many    that ' His    Honor   Judge  Brown should have kept out of the  contest.     Iu case * of protest, the  case   will   come   up   before him.  While   no   one   would assail Mr.  Brown's integrity, still doubts.will  be felt as to the impartiality of an  extreme partizan.  Following is the vote polled:  Dynes Naden Warren Spoiled  endorsed,' and at the next general  election Greenwood 'will return a  Conservative by an overwhelming  majority.

While I was not sustained in my  candidature and elected as the  member for this riding, I want to  take this opportunity of extending  my hearty thanks to those who so  ably supported me by their votes  and influou'ee. 1 am highly  pleased with the result inasmuch  as wliero I. was known I polled a  majority, and had the campaign  been of longer duration would no  doubt have been elected.  While-' it is to bo regretted that  Greenwood riding iuust be in the  opposition for another four years,  it is very gratifying to know that  the platform on which I stood received almost unanimous support  by tho electors of the province,  bearing out my assurances prior  to tho elections.

Eighty Cent Silver  The director of the United States  mints is reported to have said in  the course of a recent interview at  Denver, Colorado: Silver is going  to reach a price of 76 cents or better within two years, and will hold  that price. I believe" that hundreds of silver mines throughout the  west which have been shut down  for more than ten years because of  the fall in price will be reopening  again within a year, simply because the price of this metal makes  it worth while. Further, let me  state, this is no speculative or boom  market. Tho priee of 71 cents today will be better next month, and  it will steadily and naturally advance a point at a time until a high  mark, possibly 80 cents, will be  reached.  With silver at from 75 to 80  cents there should follow a revival  of considerable dimensions in the  Slacan, Lardean, East Kootenay  and other silver-producing sections  of the province. Silver, despite  the crusade that has been  made  in London. Hasten the day for  the advance in its price means  prosperity for tho Keotenays.  WRECK AT PHOENIX  The worst wreck and fatality  that ever happened on the Phoenix  branch of the C. P. R., occurred  last Saturday night when one man  was killed outright and a loaded  runaway train of ore was demolished, in the twinkling of an eye,  the brakeman killed being literally  ground to little pieces.  The train  consisted of nineteen  cars,   one of  which was the coach  used on the Phoenix passenger run,  the crew being the passenger crew,  which does^fgeneral  work  on the  hill when not on the passenger run.  "Shandy"   McGuire  was  the  engineer,   James   Fraser,   the   conductor,   with two brakeman and a  fireman.    ,When the train left the  water tank in the Phoenix yards a  little after 10 o'clock,  and started  down   the   hill   the air was tested  and found to work all right. When  trains get just outside the Phoenix  yards proper, the descent is rapid,  and  shortly    after   reaching   this  point" the engineer discovered his  air did not work well.    Then, as a  final resort,  an attarapt was made  to set 'the brakes more firmly by  hand, but it could not be done fast  enough, and the train was steadily  gaining speed and was out of control.      When   it passed the Snow-  shoe mine it   must have been travelling at a 50-mile gait,  and at the  Rawhide the momentum is thought  to have easily  exceeded 75 miles  per hour on a three per cent.grade.-  Half   a   mile   below the Rawhide  mine  the wreck   occurred.     Engineer McGuire stuck to his post  until it was   sure death to stay one  minute longer,   aud with the fireman and  one   brakeman jumped  to  safety,   having a narrow escape  from death as it was. ' Fraser was  in the coach, which stayed on the  track.  The other brakeman, Howard  Rushton, was trying to get down  from an ore car to jump, when he  evidently slipped and fell and was  rolled ov^r aud over and ground to  little pieces by the flying ore train,  the snow for fifty yards being spattered with his blood. Both feet  were cut off, his head was split in  two, the body badly mangled and  severed, and the track was littered  with particles of clothing, bones,  etc., a blanket being required to  get the remains together after the  fatality.  The locomotive, No. 13S-1, one of  the heavy simple engines, with two  I     -Of Local Interest)      |  against it, is the money most in  use all over the world. Niuety  men out of a hundred when they  put their baud in their pocket for  money find silver or copper there.  Silver has always, since metallic  coins were first used, been a money  and always will bo such as long as  the metals aro used by umnkiud for  that purpose. The "pale drudge  of the common people" is working  up again to the place it formerly  occupied and from which it was  ousted through au effort which be  gan among a few  money changer? I years  air pumps, left the rails before  getting through tho rock cut, then  skidded along and when out of the  cut went down the bank 25 feet,  where it now lies with drivers in  tho air. Fourteen of the loaded  ore cars piled up in au almost iu-  extricablo mass in, the cut, being  ono mass of copper ore, iron and  wood, many of the ore dumps being  of steel.  Superintendent J. S. Lawrence,  with the entire wrecking crew, was  on the scene early Sunday from  Nelson, starting at clearing it  away, aided by roadrnaster Yeo, of  Eholt and the section men of this  district. It was found necessary  to use dynamite to handle it at all  and make progress so that traffic  could bo resumed, tho location of  tho wreck being such that a track  could not be built around tho  wreckage to advantage. Ore traffic is, of courso, at a standstill, but  a day or two will see tho wreck  cleared away to permit passage of  trains.,  Rushton was on his first day as  a brakeman on the Phoenix hill,  having conio hero from the Kamloops or Rcvolstoko scctious of the  road.

Already a sufficient number have signified thei." intention  to join the syudicato and develop  the properties.     The idea is for  twenty to subscribe 825 per month  for development purposes, and tho  ore shipments above tho actual cost  of mining and treatment to be applied  for the purchase of the property.   Tho Diamond Fraction adjoins the Providence, and the vein  is said to run into tho Diamond at  tho 300 and 400 levels.   So before  tho ore is encountered it will be  necessary to sink on tho Diamond  to a depth of about thrco hundred  feet.     This   will   require  an 0*.  pendituro of about 61,000, and the  syndicate is being formed to furnish  tho necessary' funds,   Offers  have been made by tho Providouce  people for tho Diamond,   but the  sum  named  was nob largo enough  to induce the owners to sell,  Lein Pearce, an old-timer of  Greenwood, but now a resident of  Chesaw, was in the city this week  for a few days.

How did he do.it?  Writing of fJu^genlieitn in the  Cliieag i KccouMIi'r.ild, William  E. Ci.rii.- wiyo that he has the  Mid.ts touch." ,  In 1S8&'Meyer Guggenheim was  a man of great wealth, with money  to invest in other enterprises besides that of embroideries, in this  year he was '"'stuck" with a lot of  stock in a Colorado silver mine-  lie soon found out that even if the  mine was valuable he was not  likely to benefit under present  management, so, to protect his investment, he had to buy a controlling interest in tho mine. It was  not .long until lGuggeuheiui had  caught the mining fever, and soon  he sold out his other interests and  invested in a smelter, This- was  the beginning of "the Guggen-  heims, the American-Smelting and  -Refining company, that is one of  the closest corporations in the  world, and that handles nearly all  the silver, copper-and lead of three  continents. It is one of the great-  est of trusts, but allows a few independent companies to exist as a  a matter of policy.  Old   Meyer Guggenheim's greatest capital  when  he   entered   tin*  smelting business was not his cash,  nor his own   tremendous energy,  but his seven  sons,   who were all  men  at that time.    Isaac, the eldest, was  born when his father was  not very  prosperous,   and  began  life  as   errand   boy   in a grocery  storo.      He   became a commercial  traveler,  and   later on got hold of  an oil well in  Canada, whereby he  made a fortune, which he invested  iu  tho  smelting  business with ids  father.      Daniel   Guggenheim,  a  name familiar to holders of Cobalt'  stock    went   to  Switzerland as a  youth,  and managed the embroidery business of his father in Europe  until   it   was   sold  out.    Murray  Guggenheim was a  clerk   in   the  embroidery store, as was Solomon,  who   later   on   built  smelters fit  Pueblo,'Col.,  and Monterey,Mexico.     Benjamin,  the next, son was  the .first to receive a college education,  and i.s 0110of the ablest of  the brothers.     He worked at tho  Denver smelter na a day laborer,  smelter at' Aguas Clilientes,'Mexico. Benjamin is the inventor of a  process-for treating' refractory cop-'  per, ore, which t has added to the  family's, millions.   ,  Simon, ,who has . just been otr  eetcd a senator,; from Colorado, is  39 years ohV, and -received a line  education "in United States and'  Europe. Tie is the'only one in the  family who .has ever taken an-in-,  terest in polities. ��������� Before be- was  30 he had been ' nominated for'  Lieutenant',Governor of tho state/  but'his youth  prevented his clec-'  tion. . He lias refused the nomina-  .        * it  tion for Governor, but has been an  aspirant ,for .the- Senate for some  years. The youngest of the seven  sons-is- William-,- who was put  through thetWme practical train  ing "a^ his elder brothers. lie  built the, smeller at Perth Amboyr  N.

' ���������  It'v has often I'een said that the  real .ruler of ^ the Guggi-nlieims.i-  the mother ,of- the. hoy.--, who met  bar future husband on the emigrant  ship., Mr.-.-Guggenheim waited en  customers in the embioidery .-.tore  for sevetal year?, and had a great  deal to do with its success. In  later life she - was a philanthropist,  and gave away- hundreds of thousands of dollars collected by her  frugal, sons. Tho Guggenheim*,  as a fh-m, have always borne a rep-  utiirion for honorable dealing: al-o  a imputation forgetting what-they  go", af(es\ t" When the'two reputations cla<-h���������~. The'history,of  Cobalt, when it is finally written,  may reveal which of the* two i.s the  fitter -to survive. The present is  not an opportune time to hand  boquets to the Guggeuheims-, but  one can hardly withohi admiration  for tho family that "made good"  in circumstances where lesser men  would have gone to the wall.

Indians Driven Back  An arrangement hag been  cached between the Dominion Department of the Interior and a  ;band of Chippewa Indians regarding their reserve, which lies be-  .tween the town of North Bay and  .Sturgeon Falls. The territory  .will be opened for settlement on  the payment of SI00 to each man,  .woman and child of the band.  Negotiations for the arrangement  .jirerc carried oil by the Boards of  'Trade of the two towns. The  ���������jfcotal area of the reserve, which will  [be opened for settlement, is over  ,90,000 acres all of which is good  .agricultural land and is covered  mostly with good hardwood timber. Those chiefly interested in  .patting through the deal were Sir.  ^W. A. Cockburn, Indian agent at  .Sturgeon Fall?, and Jno. Ferguson,  ,of North Bay.  ���������"[Thousands of men work all their  -lives at securing the banks of the  .great Yellow river, in China. Yet  revery now and then the tide sweeps  .away all opposition, and the loss  an human * life is greater than any  .war ever caused. Nineteen years  .ago the river burst its bonds. Day  After day the torrent flowed, twenty  ,miles to tho hour, thirty miles  .wide and ten feet deep. The flood  ,has been described as that of five  panubes pouring from a height for  .tw.o -months on end. For two  .thousand years the Chinese have  'jbeen embanking this river.  Some years ago, on a line of railroads passing through Lowell that  ,was largely engaged in transporting coal, there lived an Irishman  yarned Thomas Eafferty, whose  .yards backed up to the tracks.  Finding winter coming on, and be.  jng very shortpf money, bethought  ,of a scheme by which ho could get  yuis coal for nothing.  Ife was the owner of a pet  Tngnkey, which he tied to the top  pi a post in the back yard, and the  jbrakemen while passing on their  /laily trips amused themselves by  irying to hit the poor animal witli  Jumps of coal.  At the beginning of tlie cold  .weather tlie situation was described by Rafferty in the following  .words: I've got two ton o' coal  in mo back yard, be jabbers and  /liyil a one has hit the monkey yit.  JJujb jthe monkey had a nervous  and careworn expression  When p. T.

To tho Editor of The Globe: Sir,���������I  ask for space in your columns to quote  friun a letter received at this office  Fur obvious reiisons I do not tfive th&  name. Tlie letter reads :���������" i have a  sa'l case lo present to you. Twelve  years ii!������o tv mother died, leaving' six  sin.ill children, the eldest eight years  old and the youngest an infant. My  ttiotiii-r took the eldest and kept Iter  until my mother's death. Then the  young girl went clerking, on small  w.-ijje.s. I/f-t year she contracted a  cold of which she h;ut never been free,  and she has bjuii unable to work since  last January. She is just nineteen  years old. " Kindly tell me how to  proceed to get her into the Muskoka  Free Hospital fur Consumptives."  Tho sad p ii-tuf it is this letter i.s only  one of iii-iny���������alike pathetic and appealing���������that are being received daily  by llits writer.  Fifty-live patients are in residence  In the Mu-iko!<a Kick Hospital to-day.  Seven hundred and tliirtv-eight have  been cared for since tin* hospital was  opened in April. 1002.  In pinco of fifty we could earn for  ono hundred if the needed money for  maintenance was at the disposal of tho  trustees. ,  Perhaps some of your readers have  seen tlie following earnest statement  in Dr. Lawrence F.

A physical  disaster shocks tho world and lets loose  tho sympathy of millions. A few  thousand deaths are nothing ns com  pared with tho doaths from consumption."  Tlio appeal of tho trustees of the Na  tional Hanitarltini Assoeialion is on  behalf of the consumptives of I hit Do-  Diinlon, 500 of whom die in Toronto  innually, 8,000 in Ontario, 8,000 iu the  Dominion.
