Resol ted, that we most emphatically protest against the importation    of    Hindus   a:ul   all   other  Asiatics.

"Be it further resolved, that we  nosiest the members in the Provincial and Dominion legislatures  to introduce measures prohibiting  absolutely the importation of amy  noro- more copper than all the minea-of  the globe produced in 1905}'and  two mines, each of which made'as  much of the metal last year as all  the mines of the world made (luring the first five years oil the*nineteenth century, the two mines in  question being the Cilumet &  Hecla, of Michigan^ and the Anaconda, of Montana*   -  Of the fifteoni mines of the globe  that made twenty-five million'or  more pounds- each, of refined copper in 1005; ben' are in the United  States, while there are one each in  |Mexico, Spain, Germany, and Ju-  jpan, and one, the-American Smelt-  .iog and & Refining-Co., generally  known as the smelten trust,, that  draws its copper- ores from num-  ous small- mines in Mexico,Canada,  and the,United States.  In 1905 there were 183 properties credited with a production  of one million or more pounds of  fine copper each.' Of the one  hundred leading producers, one,  the smelter trust, drew ores from  nearly all North America,, while  the others were locatedi as follows-::  Wnited States 4%Mtesico Mi; Chile,  K)r Japan, 6j Canada and Australia,. 51 each;- Spain, Russia and  Cape Colony, 3'each, Germany, 2)  Tasmania, Norway, Italy, Turkey  and Newfoundland, 1 each.

Comrade Ernest Mills and Edgar  Dynes were then duly nominated  as Socialist candidate to contest the  Greenwood- constituency. Ernest  Mills respectfully declined the  nomination. Comrade Edgar  Dynes was then unanimously  elected.  Comrade Dynes then, amid wild  enthusiasm, took the floor and  thanked; the convention for the  houor bestowed upon him. and in a  lengthly address spoke on, the  issues, of the campaign audi the  work of Socialism predicting a  Socialist victory in Greenwood' riding and the ul&imato triumph of a  Co-operative-Common wealth.

The officers  elected were: Duncan Mcintosh,  president; Jno. R. Jackson, 1st  vice president; W. B. Fleming, 2ud  vice president, and E. G. Warren,,  secretary-treasure/. An executive  committee, comprising; the- officers of bile association, and officers  of- locai' organizations imthe several  polling:divisions was appointed::  After a short adjournment W.  B>. Fleming,, second vice president,  took the choir and called for nom������-  inations for candidate. J. li.  Jfcekson, of Mdway, and Duncan  Mtelutosh and E. G. Warren of  Greenwood, wers1 nominated, Mir.  Warren receiving the majority on  first ballot. On motion of Duncan  Mblntosh and J. R. Jackson, the  nomination was made unanimous.  Rousing speeches were made by  the candidate, T. Ji Hardly, J> RL  Jackson, Howard R Stevenson and-  Jus. Kerr, of Midway, and Dr..  Spankie and Duncan Mcintosh, of  Gi-eenwood.  The Midway delegation claim a  majority west sf Boundary Falls  for the- Cbuservativo candidate.  This will leave the contest be&ween  ;the Conservative and'Soeialist candidates, as Mr.. Warren wilH have  a majority over Mr- Naden in  Boundary Falis, Greenwood; Eholt  and Dead wood. Three years ago  J,. ~R. Brown was elected by Conservative voters antagonistic to Socialism,, who had agreed to support  the candidate having the largest  number of vote* iu the outlying  districts. At that time rural polling places closed, at 5 and city,  booths at 7T:30. This year all  booths-are closed at 7 o'clock.  The contest will be sharp.and  short betweeu the Couservatift-es-  aad Socialists. The Libeaal candidate need net be considered in the  contest.  1JOJ5KA-K. CONVENfliDft-.  Saturday evening the Liberals oS  the district held a convention in  the committee rooms, Greenwood,  at which thirty delegates were  present, representing all parts of  the distoict. Four names were  placed in nomination,. Mayor  Naden, C. Scott Galloway, Dr.  Mathison and Si Ba:my Yuill.  Mayor Naden received the majority and the nomination was made  unanimous. The organization  was completed, after which the  delegates had supper at the Pacific  Cafe-- Alex. Kellettr the representative of Pat Welch, was present at  at the convention. Mr. Kellett  has,, it is saith. for some mouths  been working hard to. secure the  nomination for Mayor Naden, naid  was very much elated over the result..  SOCLA.MHT CA.XDIDA.TK.  Tuesday evening in Miners'  Union hall,, the Socialists held  their nominating con.von.tdonr resulting as was expectodrin. the selection of Edgar W. Dynes. Mr..

Mr��������� MiaccJbnaldl does not ramemver  that the present premier ofi ������anaia,  after the Rlel rebellion, made rather  revolutionary statements in- public.   Sir Willed Laurie? waa-then  in opposition.     He does not now  speak of "shouiderkig.a riffe."   Ji  is only the people who are out oi  office   who  are- vadicnl ia. their  ideas.    Give an anarchist an important official position and he will  do  his utmost to protect that position against other anarchists who  want to oust him.   The only difference between the three parties  now after votaa in this provineer  is their methods in attaining the  object for which all are fighting���������  office.    J.  A. Macdonatd  is not  less revolutionary than the Socialists in   his-fight for office, neither  would he be- ltess conservative than,  the   Conservatives    were   he  in  power.    The Sesulists wetild also  be as conservative as-the Conservatives we.te they in power.   The  party   iiame>,.  on party poiiey w  si imply a means-- to attain, ao. end.

'AViitsonsayf:  /'Dominion Copper stock has been  in better demand recently.1 It is  said tha.t there has been buying on  .this decline by interests associated  with the British Columbia Copper  ^company and that plans are being  Jaid for a consolidation of the two  ^companies.  T^. pnde^r the management of Samuel Newhouse~ajq.d.M. M. Johnson  jthe work of developing arid equipping the. Dominion Copper company's property has been pushed  ahead rapidly and energetically.  Its new fnrnace which will be the  largest 'iu the Canadian -west, is  nearly completed and should be in  commission, inside .of two months.  After it is blown'in the company  .will produce at the rate of 8,000,-  ,000' to" 9,000,000 pounds of copper  .annually at .a cost of 9 cents per  pound. Further expansion is contemplated and the prospect; is good  that the Dominion Copper company  (will make another Granby.  Attention is called to the fact  that there are only i/00,000 shares  of Dominion Copper stock compared with jl^uOjOOO shares of  jGranby. This fact warrants the  belief 'that Dominion Copper stock  will prove fully as good a speculation-as the .Granby was when it  sold around ' $4 and' 85 per share,  two or three years ago. The Dominion company is in splendid  shape financially, having approxi-  . mately $750,000 of cish ou baud.  It is anticipated that the company  will, begin the payment of dividends at the rate of 2.5 cents per  share quarterly by Jtluo end of next  year.   ' .

'Since the" hotel man could not  make a , living , if this order of  things were allowed to exist,,without some saving grace, some recompense must -be made to the hotel-  keeper for his enforced # generosity.

The Doctor's Fortune  *A wealthy New York banker,'  says tho Philadelphia Kecord,  while visiting his parents in a  small town, was stricken with  fever. For three months he was  confined to the old homestead,  dutifully attended by a fond  mother and a" very zealous doctor.  -���������The - banker recovered slowly.  One morning be decided that fresh  air would do more for him than  meJical environment and in a short  time he was enabled to dismiss his  physician.  When the doctor's bill arrived  the banker studied it very closely.  A few moments later the mother  saw her son go to the woodshed,  procure' an axe aud begin hewing  at the, bitching post, which stood  in front'of the house for fifty years.

Twain Becomes a Critic  A  successful young novelist was  praising   the    critical   powcis   of  Mark Twain.  I once had the honor of reading  a talc of mine Lo Mr. Clemens, he  said, and thanks to his criticism,  the tale was gieatly improved.  Originally it was too highflown; he  brought it down to eaith and made  ifc homelier and truer.  . For instance, the tale concluded  with these words:  Mabel's lovely eyes drooped for  answer, a faint Hush tainted her  cheek, and she gave him both her  hands, and there, in the old orchard, in the shade of the heavily  fruited trees, he drew her to his  breast, and, raising her long ringlets^ to his lips, kissed them reverently.  Mr. Clemens, at the ending, blew  a cloud of smoke thoughtfully into  die air, and, as he watched the  smoke dissolve, he drawled:  What  do you think, now, honestly,   of  a young man who would  !go  nibbling at  a  girl's b-ick hair  when she had her face with her.���������  rudianapolis Star.

A man never realizes how much  personal property he owns until lie  moves.  Some men bury the hatchet with  one hand and hold on to the axe  with the other.  Willing workers achieve much,  provided they don't try to woik  the wrong man.  One woman can tell what another woman has on as far as a  man can smell onions.

There are several millions of us  here who are not long-haired, nor  profane, nor given to gambling, to  whom hairy chaps and leather cow  clothes are merely ill-jinolling relics of history; and wdio occasionally get into evening clothes and go  to shows.  But you couldn't, get the easterner to believe if. The magazines  dare not admit it. The New York  lioston literary bunch couldn't  stand for it; they must nose around  and smell sweat, hair and leather  before they are convinced thai  they are across the Missouri. ���������  That's what makes the Western  man amused. When the president  of the United Statos is himsell  photographed in "chaps," and  with his abundant cutlery on, tin  western man has to laugh. Tinman with the hairy pants is about  as much a curiosity in the west as  he is to the six months' tourist  from Yonkers.
