S,lma? was ofeoted chairman,  He invited tha candidates,'to tako a  a "place oil the platform. Costigan  and Fernie immediatly- responded, but  it,, took ..considerable pursuading and  coaxing <to induce Smith , to yield.  Fernie was first called upon to ad-  ; dresa the meeting. ' He defined his  i position in his o?/n peculiarc,way, but,  did not succeed , in 'instilling m'uch  enthusiasm into his audience. ��� He  spoke .principally on the B. C. South'-  erm railway charter and \h'e muddle  oyer tbe coal fieklu of his own town.  He cbhtehded/thafc'owing to his'"long  residence in the district; and the fact  t'hat he rose,from  the  ranks of  labor,  ��� that be was entitltu to the   support  of  ; the people.  Smith was nest called upon,,but ho  in a sort of stumbling, stammering  way refused to talk. He said, however, Uja.b a man -was coming and  wouht soon be in the field to do the  platform work.    This man   be repre-  ��� sented to be a regular whirlwind.  Mr. Costigan was the  last   speaker.  He held the'' close   attention   of   his  listeners, and was master ''.of' the  situation from, begining,to'.end.    He  had  Smith and   Fernie  '-'buffaloed"   from  the start and any of their attempts  to  break down his argument proved futile.  A tilt arose between   Fernie and himself.    Costigan contended Fernie -was  brought o.ut and put   in  the field   by  Messrs. Jaffray   and Cox,  of Toronto,  the largest shareholders in the  Fernje  coal mines.   This Mr. Fernie did  not  altogether  attempted   to   refute,   but  stated    that     Messrs.     Jaffray    and  Cox were not   his   only   friends   and  backers  in   the   east.   Mr.    Costigan  then emphatically declared  that .men  of the stump of   Messrs.   Jaffray   and  Cox    bad   no   right   to   dictate   the  policy of this government, which  he  considered would be the   case provid-'  ing Fernie was elected.  tigan. The contrast between the  mental powers and vitality of the two  men wer'e^so greatly in favor of Costigan that had Mr. Fernie not appeared in Cranbrook at all he would  have been a winner from. a political  standpoint.  ��� While Mr. Fernie is undoubtedly a  very < nice old gentleman in' many  ways he clearly demonstrated tonight  that he is not the man needed '' in the  legislature of British Columbia to  watch over, protect and advance the  interests of this Rapidly growing region  which has quadrupled its voting list  in the short space of two years.  Mr, Fernie was followed by Messrs.,  Ross and Harvey, barristers, of Fort  Steele. '  Mr. Costigan's manliness,' his ability  as a political fighter "on lines free "from  the disreputable, and his "straighfor-  ward stand for the' interests' of all  South East Kootenay ' an'd British  Columbia, has ' already made friends  of maijy who were, political enemies  in tbjs to^P ^heretofore, apej' \yijl  acbj'eye like results' for Jiiin all oyer  the d(striot? electing him by an pyer-  'ng majority.      < '  Queens' Birthday   Fit-  " tingly Observed.

The   eighty-first   birthday   of   Her  Majesty Queen Victoria "was   fittingly  observed by the residents of this place  .last Thursday, and the' interest ��� which  they; took in the affair 'made  it like  aH'other  th'ings   undertaken' by   the  citizens of   Moyie���a   grand success.  The condition of the weather was  not  e?tra fayorable, for there were' 'several  cold Bhowers during the day   and   the  lake wap* nitber  rough   for   boating.

There were 114 miners and  48 Foresters in the parade. The line  of march was down Victoria street to  the Lake Shore^boarding house, back  again to Queen's avenue, ,-and down  Queen's avenue to the Moyie hotel.  From the balcony of the Moyie  hotel J. P. Farrell, president' of" the  celebration committee, introduced Mr.  J.'A.

To this Mr.  Costigan  suggested  that  in case Mr.  Fernie  was   elected   Mr.  Harvey might accompany  him to thc  legislative hall and there be his mouthpiece, and if Mr.   Smith   was   elected  Mr. Martin    might   arrange   to   pass  somo    legislation    whereby  his   man  might be squezed in also   and   act   in  tbo same capacity.  Mr. Costigan stated that the issue  of labor and capital was a vital one.  and that every effort possible should  bo brought to avoid widening . the  thc breach between the two. He was  in favor of ��� standing strictly by the  eight hour law, and, did not favor  even allowing it to go to a vote of the  people to determine as to whether or  not it should  remain   on   the statute  books.  Mr. Costigan made a plain business  like talk and his remarks were impressive and to the point.  ������';',.  jFERNIE IN CUANBRO0K.

Ay, the  mental, struggle's like the servant in  grand houses as puts his head in at the  door and .cries, 'Leddies aud gentlemen,  take vour seats, for the dinner is all but  ready".' " '  Early on Monday' morning Haggart,  the' non-humorist,' woke, , for the last  time.' The clay was moderately fine, but  gave no indication that anything remarkable was'about to happen. Lookaboutyou,  it is true, says that he noticed a, queer  stillness in the air,,.and, Snecky Hobarfc  spoke of an unusually restless night. It  is'believed by some that the cocks of  Tillyloss did not crow that morning.  Bud ' none of' these phenomena were  noticed until it became natural to search  the memory for them, and Haggart himself always said that it was a common  day. The face, I suppose, is that an uncommon day was nofe needed, for'here  was Haggart and there was. the cemetery.':  Nature never wastes her materials.  Haggart Was elated no' doubt, but so  would any man have been in tho circumstances. For the last thus Haggart,  the non-humorist, put off cleaning his  boots for another day. For the last time  he conibed his hair without studying the  effect in the piece of glass that was glued  .to the wall. Never again would the Haggart who briskly descended his outside  .stairvtj^ecting to shut the door, enter  that i"|gn, in which Chirsty was already  ua&ai'g bannocks. It. was a new Haggart  '.Who .would return presently, Haggart of  Haggart's Roady, Haggart of Thrums, in  short. Haggart the humorist. -  * Tho last person to speak to Haggart,  the mon-humorist, was James Spens, the  last to see him was Sanders Landels.  .lamie'met him at the foot of Tillyloss,  .and Sanders passed him on the burying-  ground brae. Both were ordinary persons, and they never distinguished themselves again.  It was not his grave that made Haggart. a, humorist, but the gravestone. Two  years earlier he had erected a tombstone,  to the memory of his relatives, but it had  never struck him that he would some  day be able to read his own fate on it.  The grave is to tho right of tho entrance  to the cemetery, and almost exactly  under the favorite seat known as the  Bower,'and being at the bend of the path  It comes suddenly into view. Haggart  walked eagerly along the path, an ordin-  upon the whole; then all at  He looked : . . . He looked  This is what he read:���  ary man  once.  again.  This Stone was Erected by  .Thomas Haggart  To the Memory of Peter Haggart,  Father of the said Thomas.  Who departed this Life, Jan. 7, 1825.  '   Also here lie Jean Linn   or Hagg&ri,  Mother of the said Thomaa,  Died 1828.

In  Thrums common folk wero doing common things���weaving, feeding the hens,  supping porridge, carting peatn.  ��� Haggart sab on the grave. In Thrums  they were thinking of their webs, of their  dinner, of well-scrubbed floors, of their  love affairs. .      '  But Haggart.safc on the grave, and a  pot began to boil. Ho had told us what  happened, Down in his inside something  was roaring, aud every moment the noise  increased. '"He breathed with difficulty.  Ho was as a barrel swelling but held in  by 'hoops' of iron. Ho rose to his foot, for  his tongue was hot and thero was a hiss-  i���.r in his throat, and tbo iron hoops  pressed moro and more tlfhtly. Suddenly  tho hissing ceased, and ho stood as still  as salt. Tho roaring far down died away.  All ab onco ho was tilted to the side, the  hoops burst, and ho began to laugh. The  pot was boiling. Haggart was a humorist..  " \9 soon as ho realized what   had   hap  pened Haggart returned to Tillyloss. The  ilrst to see him was Tibbie Robbie, the  first to speak to him was William Lamb,  the first to notice the change was Snecky  Hobart.  I only undertook to tell how Haggart  became a humorist, and here therefore  my story ends. I have shown how a lamp  was lit in ,Thrums, but not how it burned. Perhaps if I followed Haggart to his  end, as I should like to do, to the tinfe  when the lamp flickered and a room in  the Tenement grew dark, some who have  smiled at an old man's tale would leave  a tear behind them to a weaver's memory.  "Na," Haggart often said, "we winrja  touch the gravestone. It'll come in. handy  some day."  His. humor, appetizing from the first,  ripened with the years. For a time this  was his comment on the tombstone:���  '' Lads, lads, what a do we're preparing  for posterity."  Later in his life he said,  "It's almost cruel to cheat future generations in this way."  His hair was white before he said,  "I dinna ken but what I should do the  honest thing, and have the date rubbed  out."  ���'  Aiml when   there was a squeal   in   hla  vcice, he could add,  "No that it much matters."
