EDITORIAL COMMENT.  .���All nominations'for the   Provincial  Legislature must be iti' by" the  25th inst.: the fate of  |the candidates will be decided at the polls on  July   9.     From   present  indications  it would  seem as if every seat will be contested.   , It is,  perhaps,   as  well that   it   should   be   so.    eA  vigorously   fought   campaign   has   its   advantages.     It gives the electors an opportunity of  hearing tooics of Dublic   moment   thoroughly  discussed, and places them  in  a   position  the  more intelligently to cast their   vote.      Public  'opinion may'be fickle, but  in   this country at  least it seldom fails to discriminate, not  alone  between good and evil, but between good and  better, or better and best, and once an opinion  has been formed it is promptly put into operation.     We   have   not,   fortunately,  in  British  Columbia,  those   finely drawn  political party  lines   which our brethren   in  other provinces  try to live up to.      We are not called upon to  sacrifice   a   cause  to   a   party,  but are simply  invited to support a government  whose policy  is well defined or an opposition without a policy ;  we have to say whether we a.re  with  the  government   or   against   it.      Reasoning men  will ask themselves :  "Has  British Columbia  made   reasonable  progress under the Turner  administration ? "     The   answer   must   be   in  the   affirmative :   the progress   has   not alone  been satisfactory, but phenomenally so.     It is  not   reasonable���it  is   unjust���to go   back to  what may be called   ancient   history,   as   the  '^Opposition   is doing,   and   point   out  serious  'mistakes that have been made, and argue that  had such and such been done so and so would  have been the result.     It is  with  the present  day and with the present government that we  have to deal.     It can   scarcely be   hoped that  every identical act of the Turner  government  will meet with the unanimous approval of the  pCpple,  for   British Columbia  is  an  immense  country,  and  legislation  which   will prove of  immense advantage to one section may detract  from another.     There is no such thing as pef:  fection   in politics.    :" None are   perfect ; no,  not one,'' i&hd those  who  accuse the present  administration of doing anything..not. honestly  calculated to advance the interests of the province ought to be in a position to  substantiate  the   charge/Abuse is   not argument,   nor is  faint-finding' an accomplishment.     While the  Turner government has   been  promoting the  interests   of  the   country   and   improving   its  financial standing, the members of the Opposition have lost no opportunity of belittling the  efforts   honestly-'*'put   forth  and   decrying the  advantages which this province offers for the  ���'investment of capital and as  a  home for the  industrious imnnp'ra-jt.      According to-'Oppo-  sition orators and Opposition organs, the province   is   hopelessly   in   debt,   all   the   public'  domain   has   been   swallowed up   by   favored  speculators, the government is corrupt,   there  is little but class  legislation,   and  the masses  are consequently in poverty and downtrodden.  This is the picture   that the    enemy    within  our gates paints of a province which is  admitted Iy the richest   ai-cl most prosperous in the  Dorninior. of Canada.     If things were as these,  orators and organs represent them, the}- would  not remain in the country themselves.     These  ee-ritiv ever strugirle to emulate  the bird  that  fouls its own nest.     They are  predicting blue  ruin  for British  Columbia,   and, significantly  enough, the   success   of their cause.     In  this  particular instance they are logical, as the one  would naturally follow   the other.     However,  we rejoice that the day  is at   hand when the  people who  have enjoyed   the advantages of  sound, progressive government, will have the  opportunity of endorsing those  to  whom they  are indebted for it.  Jul}7 9th will be election da}7 in the province  of British Columbia, and July 12th���oh, that  was not a political fight.  A meeting of Oppositionists was held in  Nelsou a few days ago, at which arrangements were made for the holding of a convention on the 21st inst., at which the party will  select a candidate. It is generally understood  that J. Fred Hume does not care to seek reelection. His parliamentary duties take up  more time than he can afford from his own j  business; Mr. Hume is but one of many of I  the party who have been forced to confess that j  his co-workers talk too much and take up too |  much time in airing their disappointments j  and   bitterness:    they oppose for opposition's   '  sake, and place  no  value  on   time.     A silent  member himself.   Mr. Hume can   realize that  . the mistaken, foolish tactics of his   party are  ; bringing it into contempt,   and  would like to  free   himself of  resoonsibility in  the  matter.'  r. .. ..... '  However, great pressure  is  being  brought to  bear upon him to again allow  his name to be  put in nomination.    It is suggested that unless  he gives his consent, Mayor   Houston,   whose  aspirations to  parliamentary   honors are  well  known, will be oat forward, and this is a con-  tingency which the   more   influential men of  ihe party are very anxious to avoid.      But his  worship has still   many  friends left,   who are  anxious   to see  him   nominated,   so   that,   as  elsewhere,   the   Oppositionists   of  Nelson  are  divided among themselves���the Houston  men  are as bitterly opposed to Hume as the Hume  men are to  Houston.     At  the  meeting above  alluded to nineteen names   were  proposed, out  of which twelve are to be selected, as Nelson's  delegation    to  'the    convention,    and    Mayor  Houston suggested that a   committee  of three  be   appointed   to   look   through   the   list and  strike out the names of those who may be not  above suspicion.     There are a couple of political    weathercocks-   among   the   odd   number,  including   one   who,  it was supposed,   would  himself be   a   candidate   in    the   government  interest.     Many of the old-time Oppositionists  have become so disgusted with the  party that  they   openly   avow   they   will   have   nothing  more to do with   it,   while   at   the   same   time  their sympathies are not with the government.  Under    the   circumstances   an   effort   is,    we  understand, being made to  induce  Mr.   A.  S.  Farwell to run as an independent.     He would  be a strong man in the field, and would doubt-   i  less beat any candidate a disunited Opposition  might set up against him.  A visiting Indian was relieved of a dagger  the other day by Chief of Police McKinnon.  The aborigine declared he onlv used the wea-  pon on fish. There are men who carry revolvers for the sake of having something in their  hip pockets. This bad habit should be put  down.  The visit of Vice President O'Shaughnessy  and party of C. P R. officials to Nelson, has  had the effect of satisfying the public that the  interests of the district will receive full consideration at the hands of the company. A  deputation from the Board of Trade had an  interview with the vice president, during  which many important matters were very  freely discussed. Mr. O'Shaughnessy gave  the assurance that his company were fully  alive to the many   advantages   which   Nelson THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  enjoys as a commercial centre, and added that  every facility would be afforded  for extending  the trade and promoting  the  interests of  the  city   and   district.       Until   such time as   the  Crow's   Nest    Pass railway   is   brought  into  Nelson, an ample steamboat service  might be  depended upon,  but   there   was   no   intention  whatever of altering  the  route   as   originally  laid out, and depriving Nelson  of direct   railway communication by means of the new line.  He would not, tie  said,   make any   rash   promises,   which   would    bind   the   company   to  make this city a chief section, with car shops,  etc., but it was probable  that  such   a  course  would be adopted.      It   was   the  intention  of  the company to open up the   Boundary   country as  expeditiously as  possible,   and   it was  hoped that low rates on haulage and smelting  would give a great impetus  to   mining.      Mr.  O'Shaughnessy Invited the Board of Trade to  make any reasonable request to the company,  and assured them that it would be granted.  Nelson is a very health}7 place, but it was  not found necessary to kill a man to start a  graveyard. The burial ground, such as it is,  was started in the ordinary co.urse of events,  and unfortunately it has been so liberally patronized that it is sadly overcrowded.. Now  that the cemetery bylaw has been passed and  a favorable site secured, it is to be hoped there  will be no delay in putting things in order.  Speaking of the imDortance to this Province  of the lead refining industry, and what it means  to the country,   the   Vancouver   World says :  We understand that last year British Columbia  exported to the United States   43,500   tons   of  lead ore, the import duty upon which amounted  to $670000: the freight amounting to $5oo,000,  making $1,270,000 loss to   the   Province.       If  the lead was smelted   and   refined   in   British  Columbia this money would have been   saved.  The question arises as to what market can   be  found for pig lead,   and manufactures ofjead.  The Canadian market does not exceed   a consumption of 10,000 tons.      Therefore we must  look beyond for a   market   for   the   enormais  amount of pig lead  which   could   be   produed  from the output pf our mines.       Where is  the  market to be  found ?      In   Great   Britain   pig  lead is now7 commanding $50 per ton of   2,000  lbs.      The   freight   on   pig   lead   to   England  would certainly not exceed $18 per ton,   from  say   the   Slocan   district   to   Swansea.      This  would leave a margin of $32 per   ton   for   getting the lead for   smelting   and   refining   processes, and for profit, a margin amply sufficient  to make the lead mining industry a most   profitable undertaking, when it is considered this  is dealing with lead alone    in    the    ore,    irrespective of any amount of silver or gold     The  o-reat object to begin with is the establishment  of smelters and refineries in such  localities   as  to make them available for obtaining   the   ore  and the fuel required for smelting and refining   j  purposes at   the   least   possible   cost.      When  we consider the excellent fuel to   be   obtained  upon the coast, and also in   the   Crow's   Nest  Pass for the interior smelters and refineries, we  find this province so favorably situated in this  respect as to place beyond doubt the profitable treatment'of our lead ores. All that is  required are the energy and capital necessary  to put the works into operation, A subsidiary  market would be provided in Japan, China  and Chili, But that in Europe alone should  content us for some years to come as it would  amount to upwards, of 200,000 tons a year:  This subject we are pleased to learn is commanding the attention of the provincial government, and legislation looking to the protection of the industry for British Columbia  refineries will be urged upon the Federal authorities at an early date. The loss of a million  and a quarter to this province annually is a  serious matter.  A correspondent asks if the sidewalks of  Nelson were laid for the convenience of  bicyclists or for the use of pedestrians. We  referred him to " the proper authorities." The  original intention was, we believe, that the  walks should be used by walkers only.  The Spaniards cannot   complain  that they  are not being   liberally treated by the United  States.     Our American cousins are anxious to  fight,   and   have   acted on the aggressive all  through.      Making   due   allowance    for   the  characteristic spread-eagleism of the American  newspaper, naval and military men,   it is evident that up to date the Spaniards have fared  second best in the fight.     That they- will  ultimately   be defeated  is a foregone conclusion.  They have had some excellent opportunities of  showing the stuff they are made   of,   but have  failed to profit thereby, and  obliging newspaper correspondents and U. S. officials -re good  enough to give the enemy advance notes as to  every important move to be made���the number of men under arms, where they are going,  when they are going and ail about them.     But  there    has   been   such   downright   lying   and  extravagent    exaggeration     since    hostilities  began that the ''straight tips "   are not credited..   There has been more lying than dying  throughout the campaign, and for the. sake of  truth, if from no higher motive, the nations of  the earth are devoutly praying for   a cessation  of hostilities.  As the election time approaches the feeling  in   favor of the Turner  government becomes  more and more apparent, and the weakness of  the    Opposition    more   conspicuous.       In    no  instance do we find the supporters of the government   fighting   among   themselves.     They  select their candidate in a quiet business way,  and then   proceed  to make  easy   his path by  arranging for a  thorough canvass of the district, and for public meetings at which opponents are afforded every facility of showing why  they oppose him.     This  is  the  only practical  way of conducting an  election   campaign, for  the cause that is just has nothing to fear.     At  these public meetings converts  are made   and  strength    is    gained.      How   different   is   the  course   of  the   Oppositionists!     They  cannot  agree   among   themselves   in  the   choice of a  candidate, and when they do make a selection  there is no unanimity  about it.     Their worst  enemies are in their own camp, and their best  friends are to be found among their opponents!  Their oldest friends are deserting them in disj  gust, and many men whose sympathies an  with the party are so heartily ashamed oj  those who represent it that they refuse to b<  known as Oppositionists, and adopt the titl<  "Independent."  The   Prohibitionists   of Nelson voted solic  for   the   waterworks   extension   by-law   lasfj  week.    The   plumbers and gasfitters did nol  make up the missing nine votes on the electric  light measure.    Who did ?  Uneasy lies the head that wears  a crown isj  an exploded idea so far  as  King  Menelik, oJ  Abyssinia is concerned, if we. can judge froml  his    majesty's    movements.      The    crowned]  heads of Europe are evidently  uneasy just  at|  present, and while they are preparing for possible complications which may   arise, if   they]  have    not    arisen,    their    dusky   brother    ofl  Abyssinia is  quietly  arranging  tor a  trip to  Jerusalem to identify the very spot where the!

Others pass ovei  the   great   divide   and are   lost to the world  without any official record.      Statistics of thi>  sort are interesting, useful and  ofttimes necessary.  Our local  contemporaries,  ever   anxious to  get a slap at  Premier  Turner or his govern  ment,   have   given   great   prominence   to    an  article appearing in the Canadian  Mining Re  view alient the dishonest methods  reported to  have   been   adopted   in    promoting   the    new  Golden Twins Co., Limited, in Ontario.    The  names   of  Hon.  Messrs.   Turner and   Pooler  are associated wuth the   company   by   the Re- THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  >  view, and this fact in itself was sufficient to  induce our neighbors to jump with delight  . and republish the article in question, or what-  they considered the most damaging:,portions of  it. , In this article it is alleged that certain  mining propositions \vere floated in the London market on the report of a. mining engineer, who afterwards ���turned out to be a half-  breed Indian who could neither read nor  write, and who denies the statement attributed  to him in the prospectus of the company. ,  Forgery and misrepresentation are charged  against the promoters. The article has gone  the rounds of the Opposition press, as might  have been expected. Alluding, to the subject,  the Colonist says :  "Immediately   upon   the   attention   of" the  premier being called to the editorial   he cabled  to London for an explanation of the statements  and concerning the  company   with  which  his  .name was   associated,   about which  he knew  .absolutely nothing.   A reply has been received:  ".*' Investigating   statements    Mining   'Review-."  Believe them absolutely unfounded.'  It mav be here stated on the authority of  the premier that he is in no way connected  either directly or indirectly with the New  Golden Twins Company, and knows nothing  whatsoever of the mining claims in question,  nor is le in any way interested in the shares  of the company. He absolutely knows nothing concerning it."  Will our neighbors who have been so eager  to publish the article in question have the  honesty and manliness to give equal prominence to the denial ?    We will see.  There    is    something   -suspiciously    wrong  about the'manner in which   the .by-Is ws  were  handled   on   Thursday   last.     As-  was anticipated,   there   was   but   little objection   to the  raising of $5,000 to   provide  a   cemetery, only  15 votes being ie:orded against that measure.  The   ratepayers also   willingly  voted $10,000  for   the   extension  of   the waterworks,   and  a  like sum for extending  the sewerage system ;  but there was a very decided   objection  to the  proposal   to   give   $40,000   for   the plant and  franchise of the Nelson Electric  Light Co., of  which the mayor of the  city is  president and  manager,   as well   as being  financially inter-.  ested   in   the   concern.     This   opposition   was  looked for by those who were   anxious   to see  the   deal   go   through,   and   nothing  was left  undone by them to secure its  passage.      From  early   morning   the   electric   light   company's  pushers���many   of   them   stockholders���were  out hustling in voters  and using   every influence   to   get  them to the booth���and they got  them there.     Those opposing the  by-law did  not   display   that activity   which might have  been expected from them, otherwise the result  might   have   been   very   different.     However,  could they believe that everything was done  straight   and above board there would be no  objection : a majority  of the ratepayers  have  an undoubted right to  say   they are prepared  to pay for the plant and franchise of the Electric   Light   Co.,   and   their verdict should be  respected.     But there is the doubt, and not an  unreasonable doubt, that more  mistakes than  one   were   made on   Thursday last.     Shortlv  after the poll closed, but not sooner than such  a return might have been expected, what pur  ported to be an official bulletin was displayed  at the city hall, giving the figures on By-Law  No. 34 as 87 for and 52 against. According  to this return the by-law failed to carry by'; 9,  and   the    interested   crowd, left    under   this  /y  impression. /But there was a surprise in store  for them. ��L subsequent bulletin showed 143  ia favor of%he by-law and 91 against. Thus  defeat had been turned into victory���the bylaw pulled through with a majority of 2. The  ballot papers issued,, were not, it appears,  counted by the returning officer, and there  were no scrutineers. The voting, according  to the later returns, was close, very close���so  very close, and considering all the circumstances, that those who opposed the bylaw are  dissatisfied, and will in all probability protest  in no unmistakable fashion. There was a  recount on Monaay morning, but it did not  alter the complexion of affairs.  Complaint   is    frequently   made    that  'the  business of joint stock companies is carried on  iii this   orovince   without   same   having   been  duly registered.      The attention   of directors,  manao-ers,    secretaries' and   others    concerned  with the management of such concerns is   directed to the fact that sections 37,   38,   89   and  90  of   the    Companies    Act   applies     to     ail  companies   which   are  either   incorporated   or  registered in   British   Columbia.      Section   37  provides for an annual   return   by   each   company to the registrar of j oint. stock  companies,  of a list of its shareholders,   and   a   summary  of particulars.      Section 38 provides   for   penalty in case of default in complying with   provisions of above section.      Section 89 provides  that every corn pan}-shall   keep   3    register   of  of the names, addresses and occupations of its  directors or managers, and shall   send   to   the  registrar a copy   of  such   register,   and   shall  from time to time notify the  registrar   of  any  changes in the   directorate.      Section   90   provides for penalty in   case   of  default   in   complying with provisions of above section.    With  each of the above returns $1 should be sent to  the registrar for   fees.      The   attention   of  all  extra-provincial companies is also particularly  called to section 123    of   the   act,    which,    as  amended by section 5  of  the   Companies   Act  Amendment  iVct,   1898,   especially  applies to  every extra-provincial   company  carrying   on  business within   the  province   which   has   not  registered or obtained a license under  the   act  notwithstanding that  such   company   may be  already chartered as  a   "foreign"   company,  and which provides for the  penalty   to  be incurred    by    any     extra-provincial     company  which fails or neglects to obtain   a   license or  certificate of registration under the Companies  Act, 1S98.  To have too many irons in the fire is not  generally accepted as good policy. The  British American Corporation appear to be  in this unenviable position. It was at first  thought that they would be content with  securing a few good mining properties, but it  is now7 announced that the Halcyon Hot  Springs have been purchased for the corporation. It is also said that the big syndicate were  desirous of going into the newspaper business,  but were dissuaded by their manager/ Hon.,  C: Mackintosh, who declares that" there is  no money in it." The hon. gentleman speaks  from experience. There is, however, money  in beer, and the rumor is afloat that the  B.A.C. are after our local brewery, as well as  the breweries of Kaslo, Rossi and and Trail.  A monopoly on beef would unquestionably be  a money-maker. Could not the corporation  also secure a monopoly on buttermilk, pork-  kidneys and bees-wax ? By dabbling in everything the British capital controlled by the  syndicate is liable to suffer, and then it will go  abroad that the mines of British Columbia are  bad investments. ,  "One often hears people talking with pride  of their ancestors, but we venture to think  that they do not fully realize the enormity of  the subject. Every living person had 'two  parents, four grandparents, eight great-grand-,  parents���in fact, the. number of one's ancestors  doubles with each preceding generation.. In,  say, fifteen generations a man or woman must  have had 1,147,438,646 ancestors. Gentle  reader, figure it out for yourself, and-your  time will be more profitably spent than by  vvsd.ing through the daily papers looking for  ��� genuine war news or consistency in the provincial Opposition. The exercise will also  help to check the tendency to speak disrespectfully or otherwise of our ancestors.  The trouble over the sale of the Le Roi  mine is-unfortunate, but it is nevertheless a  splendid advertisement for the Rossland camp  and for the Kootenays. It is well that British  capitalists should know that we have in this,  country a mine that $3,000,000 will not, buy.  '     Preparations for Dominion Day celebrations  in Nelson are well under way.     An attractive  programme has been prepared,  and it  is  promised that it will be made   still  more   attractive ; a gang of men is at work   on   the recreation grounds, clearing tip for the   various contests that are to take place there ;   the grading  of Baker street is being pushed ahead ; scavengers are out  cleaning   up   the   highways   and  byways, and the citizens, generally are preparing for a   great   time   in   Nelson.       Arrangements have been made with   the   railway and  steamboat companies to run special  excursion  trips at reduced rates   from   all  points in the  Kootenays, and from  intimations   received up  to date there will doubtless be a larger gathering in Nelson on July   1st  and   2nd   than  has  ever been  witnessed here.      An   invitation  to  decorate would be in order.  There is trouble in store for the city scavengers if a proper dumping ground is not provided.

C i  m  Every marriage is hazardous, but I can  conceive of no greater risk than was taken by  that same handsome, mildmannered woman."  Judge Watson was speaking of a smiling,  elegantly dressed lady, whom he had just  bowed out of his office and to  her   carriage.  "She dosen't look to me like one who had  gone through many severe trials in life."    ;  "I am thinking of the chance she took, and  what might have been. The story is worth  listening to, although, perhaps, I will tell it  badly." '.-;��� -o  " Let's   have   it   by   all   means,"      I said.  "' Very well," answered the  j udge ;   "take  a cigar, and, while we are smoking, I wTill try  to tell you the story  ',, " The lady who just left has a twin sister,  who is now abroad. When they were girls  together it was impossible to tell them apart,  and when they grew to young women hood  they wrere literally so much alike as two peas,  and their mother was the only one aside from  themselves that could tell which was which,  when they were aboard in'' the same attire.  They used to play lots of jokes on the young  - men, for, being so much alike, this was easy  to do. * They were pretty girls, and had  scores of young beaus, ready and ..willing' to  have all sorts of pranks played upon them,  for just the sake of their company.  \\ Howard Gleason was especially attentive'  to Maud, and he admits' that he sometimes  made the mistake of embracing the wrong  sister when he happened to meet her suddenly  in a poor light.  " The father, old Mr, Wardlow, was rich  and proud, and only knew that Howard Gleason was courting one of his daughters. Now7  Howard was not blessed. with this world's  goods, and old man Wardlow was ambitious  for his daughters ; so he very promptly issued an ultimatum. The young man could have  neither of the daughters until he had toiled.  Sometimes he felt tempted to break his pledged  word, and write to the girl, imploring her to  send him a few words, if only enough to tell  him that she was still faithful. And then  his pride would come to his rescue, and he  would say to himself : ' No, I will not write ;  if she can't be faithful to me, better I should  know it now than when it is too late.' So  he wrorked, and toiled, cheered always by the  belief that a fair, sweet girl was waiting towel-  come him home, and counting the hours just  as he was doing.  " Luck was with the young man, and in  little more than a year he and his partner  ' struck it rich,' and he was half-owner of a  mine that promised to become one of the richest in the Kootenay. Then he determined to go  back home and tell the girl of his heart of his  eood fortune. He would be his own mes-  senger in earring the glad news, so without a  word he put his things   together   and   started  east  " Of course, having had no correspondence  with anyone in the town, no one was aware  of Howard's good fortune, and when he arrived  at his old   home   he   came   unheralded.      He  took only sufficient.'., time-./to" brush up a bit,  and then he startedfor Mr. Wardlow's. Arrived  at the house he knew so well, and the afternoon being warm, he found nobody about,  save the old gardener, who was looking after  his flowers.  ���"'' ' Where    is    your    mistress ?'      Howard  asked.  "The old man hesitated.  ������'."������'Can't you understand English���'?��� Howard  said impatiently.     ' Where is your young mistress ?' "' .  " 'She's���she's^in the grove, sir,a-readin,'  said the old man, bowing obsequiously, and  wifhout more ado Howard wrent to seek her.  You can perhaps imagine the meeting. He  came suddenly upon a fair young creature  swinging in her hammock under the trees and  leading. Coming up quietly behind her he  flung his arms about her and caught her to  his heart, as he covered her face with kisses.  "While he held her off at arm's length and  said :' Maud, my darling."  "While she answered 'Howard!' and hid  her face on his breast.  <l Howard had waited sufficiently long for  his wife;.and so they were quietly married  the next day and left at once on their wedding tour."  Here the judge ceased his story and sat  silent, puffing at his cigar, so long that the  other said :  ' _ Well, I don't see anything so very 'risky'  in that."  The Judge smiled, and then went on :  "Wait. It was the other one that Howard  had married. Maud had succumbed to the  charms of a foreigner, had married and gone  away with him. The ' other one' loved  Howard, had always loved him. When she  found, too, that he had not the slightest notion  of the true'condition of affairs, she conceived  the idea of marrying him herself, and explaining to him afterw7ard. After much coaxing,  and because she believed that her daughter's  happiness depended upon it, Mrs. Wardlow  consented to the plot. When they returned  from their wedding tour Howard's wife told  him everything. He's a sensible fellow and  was quick to see that what had happened was  all for his happiness.  " Five years have gone away and to this  day he has never quit ' thanking his stars'  that he didn't marry Maud, but married ' the  other one.' "  LARRY'S LETTER.  The provincial elections are fixed for July  9th,'and it behooves everyone who has the  interest of the province at heart to do his best  for the support of the present government,  says the Kamloops Standard. '' The issues  before the electors are simple. Do they  wish a progressive government that will develop the natural resources of the country, and  help the farmers and others to help themselves ?  Or would they sooner support the Opposition  policy of stagnation, leaving the country to  stew in its own juice ?" There is no danger  that the people will support an Opposition that  cannot support itself, or who fail to show any  reasonable ground for existence.  Hogan's Aij^ey, Juujfe 13.  Deer Tim���As I was saying last week  the  Dominion Day Selebrations is all the talk now  an' we're going to have a greattoime entoirely.  The shaiving   contest   that   I   was  telling ye  about   'ill come off all right,   an'   a   druggist  says he'll give   all   the   sticking   plaster they  want free, gratis an' for nothing.   The barbers  are having some   trouble in getting   chaps to  sit for the shaiving match, but they've agreed  to share the prize money.     The winning team  ���the barber an' the man he shaves���'ill have  $17 to devide betune them an'  the ctiampion-  ship ov the Kootenays.      Ttie knights ov  the  raizor are practicing hard an' getting up grate  speed.     Mickey Burns went into won ov thim  the other day to have   the hair   taken   off his  chin, an' the chap in his hurry was nearly taking the moustash off Mickey.   " Howly smoke  do ye main to deproive   me ov won ov me facial ornamirits," says Mickey, says he.        " I  think ye might   look better   widout it,"   says  the barber,   " for   since   the   war   betune   the  Spaniards an' the States has   broke   out  mus-  tashes ov your pattern   is   unfashionable   wid  the Anglo-Saxon.     Yer moustash, Mr. Burns,  is   a   Don   Resperato."       " Dickens a care I  cares what   soort ov a   resperato   it   is,"  says  Mickey, says he,   '' it wTas the pattern  me forefathers wore whin they wor foighting for owld  Ireland, an' tis good enuf for me.

Maybe tis wanting to practise  on me sweet countinouse ye are," says Mickey  says he.       Well, the chap had to give in   that  he was   trying to get up a  bit   ov   speed,  an'  Mickey towld him that if he drew blood there  'd be a big row an'   the barber   'd fare second  best. * .  Since it got 0131 that Don Resperatos was  out ov fashion, all our fashionable young men  are getting their moustashes shaved off, an' a  chap that wares won is a back number. I'm  towld that the Imperiale an' the Don Desperado are all roight for the upper lip, but tisn't  every moustasfe that'll take the curl. I was  telling this to a dude. "Pshaw7 I" says he.  " I'm not talking ov Shaw," says I. " Well  why don't they get an O'Grady," says he,  " an be done wid it ?" " What's an O'Grady  me frend ?" says I. " A clain shave," says  he.

TERRITORIAL    EXPANSION  There are queer  signs   displayed   in   every  city which will find their way into print,   and  Grand Rapids has its share, but the dalm   has  yielded to the following, which has drifted   in  from the far East :  Mrs, Marshall, an indigent  widow, w7ent into the  laundry   buiness   on   a  small scale.      She had her sign painted   upon  the shutters of her front window like this :  No.  Mrs. Mar  La  All work  done  Open  See specimens  i  shall  undress  punctually  at 7 o'clock  in this window7.  The next morning when she went out to  see what caused the crowd in waiting she  found the left hand blind had been blown back  by the wind and the sign hardly read as  she meant it should, although it accounted for  the presence of the crowd.  There are grave reasons to fear that, flushed  with the pride of incipient conquest,- the  United Stntes are contemplating a career of  territorial expansion the �� ultimate consequences of which are not likely to be properly  weighed during the present excitement. The  programme of the war party is to seize and  hold all of Spain's colonies, but as they are  not all .seized yet the task of holding and^ governing them according to plans said to have  been formulated by the president, might admit  of some modification. It is evident to any one  familiar with the- topography and population  of the Phillippiues, for example, that the-  small force now being sent by the United  States is totally inadequate to conquer and  hold the islands, unless the good will of six  millions of the Malay population be secured in  advance. Suppose the insurgent leader  Aguinaldo should, 'after, the Americans have  secured his town, still continue :o aspire to a  dictatorship, backed by six millions of his  people, in preference to being the tool of the  new invaders���what then ?  There is one item, however, in the new  United States territorial .bill of fare which',.is  likely to be productive of serious consequences  even before the war with Spain will be concluded, and that, is the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands.  The history of how United States marines  were lauded in Honolulu in January, 1893,  from the cruiser Boston, and howT a corrupt  American minister aided a few of his own  filibustering countrymen to get the reins of  government and the national treasury, are  still fresh in the public mind. The act of  invading the friendly territory of Hawaii with  which the United States was then at peace and  had treaties of ami'y and commerce, and the  instrumentality by which the constitutional  government of its people .was overthrown, to  be replaced by the present oligarchy, stands  unoaralleled in the military crimes of this  century. As mi act of perfidy and cruel  double-dealing it has eclipsed that other earlier  crime���the partition of Poland.  The full consummation of the crime against  the Hawaiian nation is now urged by.the President of the United States as a " war  measure." The Hawaiian people cannot fight  the United States in defence of their country  and flag. The present so-called government  is offering the islands to their own country,  the United States. The whole world is aware  of the fact that they are trying to traffic in  stolen goods, and it will be an evil day for the  United States when, after annexation, upon  the appeal of the Hawaiian people to the  justice of the nations, the United States will  be arraigned before the interested maritime  nations of the world and compelled to dis- j  gorge. It will be a case in which Britain j  cannot defend her protege. I). M. C.        j  Dr. A. J.

The  Post Office.  To the Editor op The. Economist .  Dear  Sir.:���I   observe   that   between    the  hours of 6 p. m. and 7 p. m. there is  an  absolute cessation of business at the post office; and  that mail matter is not distributed during that  time.     I have no doubt the  post office clerks  require a  substantial dinner as well as other  people,   but   dp   you   not   think   some   better  arrangement   might be made,  similar to, that  of the   stores���leaving   one   to   continue   the  work of the office while  the  other  is dining?  Some   time   ago    we    gained    an   undoubted  advantage by getting the mail from the mountain station an  hour earlier  than  we   used to  do,  but  this advantage is seriously impaired  by the method mentioned above.     I have no  doubt that if you bring the ^matter before the  notice of our obliging postmaster he will make  an effort to facilitate business for business men.  ���Yours very truly Business.  Dominion Day Sports  To thk Editor of The Economist.  Sir���-I observe by one of the   Kaslo   papers  that a leading athlete of that   city  is   reported  as severely criticizing the  programme  as  outlined by the committee  having the  Dominion  Day celebrations in hand.       While   I   do   not  think the prizes offered for minor   sports   are  as liberal as they  might  be,   I am   forced   to  remark that on this occasion Nelson is running  the show7.     Our firemen's prize is more liberal  than that offered by Kaslo on   May   24th   last.  Our men did not kick on that  occasion, and if  Kaslo   ''cannot well  import   baseball   players  like Nelson   has   done,"  and   has   "no   regularly organized lacrosse  team,"  that   is   their  own look out.     It is certainly  no  reason why  we should not make  these  particular   events  sufficiently    attractive   to   bring to    the    city  teams from other districts   more   fortunate in  this connection than Kaslo.     I have a distinct  recollection of attending a celebration in Kaslo  when they did import a baseball team, and on  the occasion in question   the   Nelson   lacrosse  boys were charged the usual admission   fee to  see the game.     If Kaslo has no horses to compete with ours, other  Kootenay centres  have,  and we  hope  to  get  them   here.       While we  should like to accommodate our Kaslo friends  in every way,   we would   respectfully   remind  them that our programme is not  drawn   up to  suit them alone.���Yours truly,  Sport.

THE CITY COUNCIL.  H  '. i  -J  Mayor: Houston presided over the weekly  meeting of the City Council on Monday afternoon. Aid. Gilker, Hillyer and Madden were  also present.  The city engineer asked for an extension,of  time to report as to the quantity of explosives  stored in the powder magazine, and the probable result of an explosion.  On motion of Aid. Madden, it was decided  to put a culvert on Observatory street, between  Stanley and Kootenay streets.  A communication was read on behalf of the  proprietor of the Klondyke Hotel, asking permission to erect fire escapes and landings on  his building.  Aid. Teetzel explained that Mr. Lund had  erected a verandah on the premises, and it  was this the firewardens objected to. Now  Mr. Lund wanted to use these verandahs,  which projected over the sidewalk, as landings  for fire escapes or ladders. If permission were  granted the reason should be explained to the  fire wardens.  The permission asked for was granted.  The   proprietress    of   the   Kootenay   Hotel  asked permission to erect a verandah  in  front  of her building, 24 ft. by 6 ft.  Permission granted, the plans to be submitted to the city engineer.  The city clerk, as returning officer, reported  that the four by-laws submitted to the ratepayers on Thursday last received the necessary  support and were declared carried.  The by-laws were finally passed and adopted  by the council, on motion of Aid. Gilker,  seconded by Aid Madden.  A letter was read from James McFee, stating  that a first-class fire alarm system could be  installed for $1,200. A letter on the same  subject was received from Winnipeg asking  for a detailed statement as to what was  desired.  The consideration of the subject was postponed.  The ma}7or announced that a number of  residents in the district asked for an extension  of the water works from the terminus of the  system on Kootenay street to the end of Latimer street, a distance of about 600 feet. He  had asked for tenders for the digging and laying of a 2 inch pipe. The .Lawrence Hardware Co. wrote stating that they would do the  trench work at 12 cents per foot. A tender  was received from Hebden & Hebden offering  to do the digging at a like figure, and lay the  pipe at 28c. per foot, angles and T valves  extra.  The mayor was authorized to have the work  done.  Capt. Hodgins asked permission to use the  recreation grounds for drilling purposes two  evenings each week.  Permission granted.  It was decided to put in a catch basin at the  corner of Hendryx and Hall street.  The mayor suggested that he  be authorized  to prepare debentures  for the  by-laws   passed   j  on  the   9th   inst.     He   did    not   think   there  would be any objection to three of the by-laws.  As to the fourth���that dealing with the purchase of the electric light franchise and plant,  he understood that it was probable it would be  contested. However, as the price had not  been definitely settled, he suggested that the  finance committee should see the electric light  company on the point and ascertain the exact  figure. They could inspect the books, and, if  they thought necessary, appoint an auditor.  On motion of Aid. Hillyer, the mayor's  suggestion was adopted, and some accounts  having been passed, the council adjourned.  LOCAL NEWS.  CHALLENGE.  I hereby challenge Mr. J.
