Everyone who takes an interest in mining, ia talking about the discoyeries  tihefe, and every boat carries men arid  supplies to the ne>v camp, The best of  it, all is, thelmpre the proposition is investigated, the greater grows the conviction that, the "richest mining camp  in the Province has been discovered at  Poplar Creek. The showing has never  been .equalled before. The. hotels,are  crowded with men interested in the  new fields.    Yesterday's boat. took u p  a large number of men, and the merchants are. experiencing , a veritable  bbom i nth e way of fur lilshiiig supplies.  It is not only Poplar Creek that ia attracting attention. ,The Lardeau is.cx-  periencihg. aiwonderful revival.

The meeting of the Provincial executive at which it was decided to hold nominating  conventions on August 15th, was attended only by George Russell, the well known ' politician and  barber, of Victoria, and John Houston, editor.of the Tribune, of Nelson. Therefore, there was no  quorum, and there was nothing binding on Conservatives anywhere to hold nominations on the day  appointed. The list of Conservatives is as yet far from being complete, and it will probably be three  weeks or a month before all the nominations are made. In the majority of constituencies the manner in which nominations are to be made will be determined by Conservatives without regard to the  . arrangements of the two two members of the executive referred to.  [for the old party  I There have been several Conservative candidates selected iii the Kootenays since  our last issue.-  �� Harry Wright beat John Houston for the nomination for-Ymir "riding, George "Fraser has been nom-  ��� inated for Grand Forks, Thonias Taylor for Revelstoke, Thomas Cavan for Cranbrook, William  % Hunter for Slocan, and Hon. Robert Green's candidature for Kaslo, as is customary in-the case of  i c abinet ministers, has been endorsed. Mr. Wright is mining recorder at Nelson, and by reasoii'of  t - his long experience in that effice should make a  useful member.    George Fraser is a druggist   at  ��� Grand Forks ard stands well at his home. Thomas Cavan is a popular railroad conductor. . William  X -. Hunter is a successful merchant, and his election to the House would be a distinct gain tb the whole"  % country.-    Thomas Taylor has had considerable.experience as a legislator, and has rendered the state  good service.    Robert Green is the Minister of Mines and should poll every Conservative vote in his  constituency.   ,H e is not a recent convert to the Conservative faith, having been "affiliated*.' -with the  j'  patty :since the day he was born. \  ��� ���- ** AAA> $  'S  t  A Campaign of Deception  The ccol and insolent manner in which Mr. Houston and some of his friends.announce that their  candidate will have the united support of the Conservative party in Nelson is on a par with other  statements originating af the same source. He and his friends know that he will not secure anything like one-half the votes of the Liberal-Conservative party in Nelson. However, the contention  is usefulin the way of showing just how much dependence-is to be placed in the statements of the  candidate of the Houstonites. The claim is put forward simply to deceive Conservatives in other  portions of the provinee.  ^^^^>%%^/%^^%f%/%/^/%.i%f^%>%^a^'%f^%^%^/^^^f^  Slocm Drill.

In the first D cminicn Parliament, Sir John Macdonald and the Conservatives in his Cabinet advocated placing the telegraph system, and other utilities, under government control; but the Grits in the  House said A 'v'Why uot at'once put the newspapers ar.d the writing of private letters, and our ledgers, and owr man- servants, and our maidservants, and our oxen and everything that is ours, tinder  gov eriiment control���?"  This is history. -��� ���-.-..  ...Mr, Taylor told his audience what the Liberal parly had done in the way of opening up the  country and building public works, but forgot to claini credit for the barb-wire telegraph line to the  Yukon. ''  ��� We would like Mr; Taylor to tell us in what year it,was the Liberals passed the legislation under  which the Toronto printers were released from jail, in 1872, having been charged with conspiracy by  the late Hon. George Brown ?  With all the professed love of the Liberals and the Liberal press lor organized labor, there was  not until 1882 a Liberal daily newspaper office in Canada in which union printers were permitted to  '���work.' Even to-day the Government printing-office at Ottawa, in which the Labor Gazette is printed,  is not a union office.  R  etrospection  Hello ! Jack, old man, Is that yotr?  What's on to-night?

It was a hot summer's night iu Boston, alid Philip Carr and I���you know  Carr���set out for an evening of opera  at popular prices, scarcely knowing  what they were singing. When wc  entered the theatre the second act was  half over. A woman was singing and  her voice gave me a start���it was what  I call a voice with a thrill.  No, I didn't say "trill," but "thrill,"  or if you like, the power of thrilling.  Now there are voices���and voices���  some faultily faultless as Tennyson lias  it���you know the line ; It described a  face-^not a voice, but no matter !���and  now and again a ..voice .that goes  straight to the heart, and stirs-it deepr  ly, as did this one,'till memory went  groping back through, the long years  and I was a boy again, in the old Tivoli, hanging breathless on every note  of this same voice, as it lilted forth in  tho Jewel Song or wailed the agony of  hapless Marguerite or sobbed through  the exquisite melodies of *'Truvinta."  I was aroused by Carr's mildly inquiring if we would not better find our  seats. I followed him mechanically,  nor did I fully realize, 'till tbe curtain  fell, that the time was the present, the  place Boston and that I had heard  "Martha" numerous' times, in the la-  terim, since the old Tivoli days. Now  Carr is uot only a man of sentiment,  but of action as well, and when I said,  " I must get some roses���but how?'.'  he replied, "I know a place, come  along !" and oil* we started, and roses  we found, creuniy tea roses and pink  ones too, and Carr���artistic' chap that  he is���insisted on bunching thorn together, without string or ribbon, with  one great, half-blown, pink fellow banging head down, along the stalks ofthe  others.  When we reached the foyer she was  singing " The Last Rose of Summer."  Her voice seemed tired. I missed some  of the *dd time thrill, and Carr even,  hinted that perhaps the " thrill" had  been "all lu my mind, any way ,w adding, "with*possibly a tew wliee's as  well;" but I looked at the roses und at  tbe cord on which I had written "Tra-  vlata���'Frisco 1884," and replied, "You  shall see! She is far from home and  friends, her voice Is not quite sq~fres"h'  as it once was, but you sliall'see i"     >  I dispatched the roses at the end of  the act and we waited. '  In the;next, scene she wore a riding  habit, - if I mistake not , *,' And the  roses ?" not a rose! but she sang, oh  how she sang! nob tired now, but like a  bird���a sky-lark ! " Sing on ! Kfctle  woman, there are friends here tonight,  sing as you did in the old Tivoli,i,in  1884. Ah, my boy! what a power is  this thing we call sympathy I  The curtain falls, and rises again,  and there she stands, clad once more in  her simple frock, and holding the roses,  with the great, half-blown pink' one  hanging just as Carr had left it; and  when she sings "For the springtime  has brought us fresh rotes again," her  voice full of the promise of sprinctlme  of birds, of flowers and" of love���and  lifts the roses higher and higher, 'till  they rest against her.cheek, Carr fairly  leaps in his sent, while I confess to a  slight mist blurring my eyes, for a  second only.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The Conservatives of ISTelson aredi-  Tldcd Into   two  factions���tho Hous-  /     tonltes and the anti-Houstonites.     In  the Houstonite camp thero arc many  Conservatives who areacting according  to their lights, and with these thia paper has no fight.   The anti-Hotistonite  ��amp is coiriposed of Conservatives who  do not regard Mr. Houston as of their  political faith, and will not vote  for  him believing tbat he is too heavy a  . load Cor the party to carry.  1 The conduct of Fred (Starkey,  .through whose blundering and incapacity "tub "breach between tlio Conservatives of this city has been widened,  supplies an instance of the damage that  may be done by pitchforking men of  liis calibre into positions of prominence.  Jf Starkey'had appreciated the duties  of hia ofQcc, the probabilities ure the  Conservatives would have been working most harmoniously in "Nelson today with every prospect of winning  in the forthcoming election. The injury wrought by this man is not confined to Nelson only ; the Conservative cause in other parts of the province  is suffering also through his itidiscre  tion.  The ability of the man who succeeded  in divldliig the Conservatives of Nelson  into two hostile camps is not to be  lightly overlooked. Mr, ytarlcey is  ft very smart man.  Mr. Houston's campaign, as far as it  lifts progressed, does not differ materially from his former contests. Already  the man who was wanting to bet  against Houston and was culled at once  Las made his .appearance, this time in  a. bojfoer show. Mythical men who are  accused of taking unfuir advantngc of  that paragon of purity, John Houston,  are presuming to dispose of votes  which rightly belong to tlie Houstonite'candidate. And so the fight gocn  _onf' and_wllI_cpnU_hjiejuMj^  Houston knows only one way to light  a political battle, but his .system h too  well known to trap any one.  ' One Houstonitc is reported to Have  told a prominent Cousei valive that bis  candidate did not want any Conservative votes. " Blessed is he that expoet-  ethflittle, for1 lie will not be disap-  lioiiit��d,or wbrdd to llnit.eflftx-i.  Sir Wilfred laurier estimated Canada's liability in connection with the  Grand Trunk Pacific at $13,000,000 and  Mr. Bluir places it at $130,000,000.  There is certainly room for argument  between the two figures.  Goldwin Smith celebrated his eightieth birthday on the 13th of this  month at Toronto. Canadians have  always esteemed it an honor to claim  the monarch of literature as a citizen of  their country. This sentiment of regard for him Is hot affected, but real  and sincere.  It seems now almost certain that  Kaslo will have a smelter within a few  months. This with the recent revival  in mining should restore prosperity to  Kaslo.  which was suppressed the name of a  "the wife of a highly respected resident" who was Jailed for throwing car-j  bolic acid into the face of another woman of whom she was jealous. The  hope is expressed by some of the eastern papers that the authorities will not  sutler from similar regard for the an-  nonynious prisoner's feelings Avheii  dealing with the crime.  WkWkWMWtfYWkW  The Conservatives of Ymir have  shown considerable discretion in selecting Harry Wright as their stundard-  bearer. He is certain to poll the full  strength of the party vote.  Mr. Houston deplores the use of  mud as campaign material. HuUm is  said to have reviled sinners oil one occasion.  After getting a knock-out blow from  Harry Wright for the Ymir nomination, Mr. Houston refused to accept  th e nonil nation of the Houston ites.  However, his delegates - succeeded In  lassobing hi tn, and ho consented in a  half-hearted way to take a chance on  Nelson.   -  "Winnipeg people are anxious to have  Lord Strathcona visit the Prairie City  during his present sojourn in Canada.-  If be does so the thrifty Winuipeggers  ��in lie depended upon to work thecon-  fidehce jguiric on'������'��� the High Comrais.  aioiic'r T^i-; $25,(300 or ��50,000 fpr' some  public institution.  It is to be hoped that the recent hailstorm in the Northwest will prove hot  to have been so-disastrous as.at first believed.  Dr. Rose credits Mr. Houston with  being a lifelong Conservative. This  leads to the suspicion that Dr. Bose is  not a subscriber to the Tiibune and has  ' ' :��� i -' '  not read the "lifelong" Conservative's  frequent references to'Mr. McBride.  We used to hear n great deal about  Vancouver and Victoria Conservatives  who wanted to get both feet In the  trough. But, we never heard tbat  the Conservatives of either city tried  to create a comer on nominations, as  one noted individual attempted in Nelson.  According to Mr. Houston, he has  "only recently aililiated with the Conservative party." For a man w ho bus  "only recently affiliated'"-'with a  party, the lale member for Nelson  district seems to expect a whole lot in  return.  Mr. Houston says an honest man does  not better himself by being in political  life. How in the world did "Honest"  John And that out?  .In accepting the nomination tendered hiui by the Houstouites, Mr.  Houston remarked: "There are between 70and 80 votes here, still there  uro 400 outside that wc must get.''  How to get even a small proportion of  Lhoae^OQ-votcs is a prubleu^thaMuslth^r,  Mr. Houston nor his followers will  ever be able to solve.  Mr. Houston received the (foiiadni-  lte nomination in about tbe spirit displayed by a culprit whon tb�����judgeask|r���  lilm if there Is anything he hats to say  "Why the sentence of the court should  not be paused upon him.

An open confession is good for thesoul,  but Mr. Houston should be morn careful in dealing with figures. He should  have said wore imperfect ions than any  1000 men, women and children in Nob  wm. The sentiment was ull right; it  wwmerely a ease Of juggling wtti��Hi_-  uits.  f The HoiestonUe candidate says that  when the occasion arises the stundtird-  beurcr of thut party ean throw mud-  b:ill.��,." and when his tent per isarotiscd  ho is not afraid of throwing them swift  und straight." No one has.ever ijucs-  tioned Mr. Houston's capacity as a  manufacturer and dUsoiuh-atorof mud-  bulls.

The  editor of the great independent daily is  not a Conservative; he is only a so  journer in the camp of the victorious  army. His tent is not cemented to the  realty ; it can be moved with the^iirst  reverse. The Labor-libera Is may for  the present miss John's cheering smile  and encouraging advice, but what  can they expect? Have lhey anything to offer in tho way of material  hospitalities? Isn't the Conservative  party in power in the province? But  if they yearn for the inspiration of his  genial smiles and the bene Jit of his  conscien tio'us approval, they, need nol  be cast down, let them win the election ; then they win all, A blessed reunion will take place over theloavcs and  fish. This "lifelong" Conservative has  performed many political marches, in  diverse directions; under various party  Hags, marking time to all tunes, aud  without prejudice as to uniform..

Extract from Ihe Nelson , Ecomojixst,  August lStfc;  Other letters were written to Mr.  Starkey, but brought forth no response, so last Monday the following  requisition was forvvarded to the presi-  dent of the association :  Fred Starkey, Esq., President Liberal-  , "Conservative Association, Nelson,  .-', ' B.C.:'"  Dear Sib,���You' have been repeatedly asked?'to' call a "meeting or the  Liberal Association of the city, but  have failed to do so. No meeting has  been held for months, though a general election 'is at hand. We how request you to call a general meeting of  the Liberal-Conservative Association  for Wednesday evening in the board of  trade rooms, su��h meeting being for  the purpose of considering all matters  pertaining to the welfare of the party  and to endeavor to so unite' the party  as to ensure the election of a Conservative candidate.

I enclose a request  signed hy a few of the many who desire a meeting. The decision and responsibility rest with you. iryoude-  cideto call the mating, I; would Suggest notice being inserted in thejrjorn-  ing paper.   Trusting that you will do  SO,  ; ��� W.A. ^MACPOSAI,!*.  This requisition was not treated  with even the scant courtesy of a.reply, which, everything considered, is  perhaps not to he marvelled at. The  only sign given that the president had  ever received the letter, Was the more  prolific use of foul language by the  '���gaug"<5n the streets to express their  opinion of respectable Conservatives.  When no answer to the requisition  was received, thirty or forty meinbera  ofthe pur ty-came together and decided.  to call the public meetlnjg of Conservatives which was, held in the board of  trade rooms Wednesday evening. The  Houstbtiites refused 7 to; attend: that  meeting, although one or two of their  number, It is said, as is their custom on  occasions of this character, availed  themselves of a convenient post to witness the proceedings. The attendance  at that meeting was so large as to leave  no.doubt of the widespread feeling of  resentment which prevails amongst  Nelson Conservatives at the outrageous  conduct of President Starkey. The  chair was occupied by Dr. Stoddart  and Mr. C. I. Archibald acted as sec-  rectary. '������ '-''���':  It was moved by W. Ai Macdonald,  seconded by Geo."Steed, and carried  unanimously.:  WiiereasMr. Fred Starkey, as president of the Liberal-Conservative Association, has neglected to call any meeting of the association of Conservatives  generally for the purpose of either preparing to heal the differences known  to exist in ��� the local. Conservative  ranks, and has broken faith as to meetingsarranged with him to be called  for that'purpose, and has also failed to  complyvwith or even had the courtesy  toj reply ato *nrrequest- signed by, ac-,  kno>vledged Conseryatiyes for a public  ineetibgbf theVasooiatioii:  Therefore this public meeting of Con  servatives approves of the calling of  this meeting so that the members of the  party'as a whole may have au opportunity of being heard, and further this  meeting condemns the course pursued  by the president of the association and  declares his conduct betokens lack of  fairness and true appreciation of bis  position and an apparent desire to act  solely in the interest of a portion only  ofthe party.

As they  come in sight of each other they slacken, their pace and approach with downcast eyes and a-vcited faces, as if neither  was worthy of l>eholding tho other.  Then they how low, to as to bring the  faco on a level with the knees, on which  the palms of the hands are pressed.  A succession of hissing sonnds is next  made by drawing in tho breath between  tho closed tooth, interspersed with a series of complimentary phrases tittered  with great volubility in a sort of under-;  toned falsetto, each trying to oatdo his  friend in rapidity and extravagance of  language, whilo the palms are diligently rubbed against each other.  At last the climax is reached, and  each endeavors to give the precedence  to the other. For somo moments, perhaps for a full minute, the polite contest continues. Then the ceremony., abruptly ends, as if the difficulty were car  pal.le of unnr but a brusque solution,  and the two pass on hurriedly, with a  look of extreme relief.
