NELSON, B. 0., SATURDAY NOVEMBER 19, 19C4.  Conservatives, Vote for Mackintosh  NUMBER VS  The election wbich takes place next  Tuesday in Kootenay electoral district  will not change to any great degree, no  matter who wins, the political complexion of the Government at Ottawa.  By a large majority, the voters of the  Dominion of Canada have endorsed Sir  Wilfrid Lanlier and his Government.  But it should not be concluded that  the electors of thi s district, although  placed at thc disadvantage of not being  able to record their votes ou the same  dale as other freemen of Canada, ure  to refrain from emphasizing their faith  in their party by casting their ballots  " for the principles for which they have  contended.    On behalf of Mr. Mackin-  '-tosh it'must be said that he consented  to become the standard-bearer of the  Conservative party in this district, believing that the election would take  place here on the same date as it did  elsewhere, and that.be would have the  united support of his party. It is not  his fault that the elections were deferred for nearly three weeks, and there is  no reason why he should not receive  every Conservative vote in his district.  If he receivesjhc support to which he  is entitled; he will carry the district.  If he does not receive the'Conservative  vote, and if it transpires that there is  within the Conservative ranks any  considerable number who are dispone I  to sacrifice their principles to ba on the  winning side, ho will be defeated. The  principles  for which Mr. Mackinto.-Ii  , contended three weeks ago-are just tl.e  same to day as they were at that lime,  and if eleo'ed, he will Undoubtedly  8 ta lid up for those pr inciples. Jf the  Conservatives betray the man to whom  they gave, their pledge they "would sup-'  port, it will be to their lasting disgrace.  Many another man would. have faltered, when called   upon   to face the  A>dds with which hois called upon to  contend, but not so with the old war-  horse, who is.now travelling night and  -day disseminating the_ principles of his  -party.   He  is made of sterner stuff',  *^$nd'we very much misunderstand the  ^Conservatives of Kootenay if they fail  \'to grant him their full endorsation.by  casting their ballots for him next Tues-  '  "day. ';* All .this .rot about "the .ball of  - progress," should not affect the vote iu  the slightest. The voter should only  consider the promise he made, to support Mr. Mackintosh.- The man who  fails in tbis is lacking in the courage of  his convictions, and shoujd-never again  ' hold tip liis head amongst self-respecting men. . - '���'-,,  Why Borden Was Beaten in Halifax-Many  Conservatives Struck Off the Lists.  Manitoba  General Comment.  ���V  Manager Cranston-did not herald the  Beggar Princs Opera* Company with  trumpets; he merely stated^tbat* the  public would get thc worth"* of rthei��-  money, and he has kept his credit with  his,"patrons'!    He .might-havo said a  -'-greatr3e"al*m'ofehtpraise of the Beggar  Prince Opera Company than  he did  and yet have been within, thc mark,  but he preferred to .let the, public place  its own valuation bn the quality ofthe  entertainment provided..   The public  did so, and the concensus of opinion is  that it-is the most accomplished musical organization ever 'seen in Nelson.  What it lacks in thc way of a large  chorus is made up in the r_ualit'y of the  music.    Another feature that is worth  remarking upon  is* the' fact that not  only are all the principals clever- and'  acconaplished voealists,  but they possess a qualification very often lacking  in operatic singers, vi'/., duo appreciation of  the dramatic possibilities of  their roles.    Mr. Wade, the comedian,  if~~turabandoned the-operatic- stager  could   take up dramatic work,  with  every prospect of establishing a name  for himself." And'in this connection a  great deal .could tie said for each and  every, member of the company.,. The.  presentation of "Fra Diavola" gave the  principals an opportunity of display ing  their talents. , Quite.naturally, the iuterest centered in MivBronti iu   the  title role.   He has a magnificcut voice,  and it is rarely one is given  the pleas-  of hearing the   robber chief sung so  well.    Particularly was he agreeable in  the duet with Miss Palmer.   This lady  has also a highly cultivated voice, and  her rendition' of the nocturnal prayer  was really a treat.   Jay C. Taylor has a  tenor voice of line quality, in the opinion of some the greatest tenor that has  visited the west in many years.     But  the ole in "Fra Diavolo" did  not give  him as good an opportunity of displaying his talent as in the part of Pedro in  "Girotfe-Girolla," when  he was repeatedly encored.     Mr. Walters interpolated a solo on the first'evening, and  by the amount of applause bostowed  upon    him,     we     rather     imagine  those    present    were    very    pleased  that   he   did    30.       Added    to - an  exquisite voice  of   gre..t   range  and  volume, he   has   clear    and   distinct  enunciation,  a   merit so often absent  in operatic stars.   Miss Hutcheson has  a good voice, and indeed only words  of praise arc due every one of the principals, amongst whom are Miss Mum-  ford, Miss Lelia Thorne, Miss Winni-  fred   Petersen,  Miss   Helen   Lieperg,  and Jack Bpaulding. .There'''will''bo  some difference of opinion'as* to which  of the two operas was given the most  finished  presentation,    but   all   will  agree that they were both  highly eu-  s     joyable.   It is also gratifying to note  that Mr. Wade is so pleased with his  reception   in Nelson, that he has decided to-visit this city again within a  few months, and he will have no rea  son to regret his decision. He should  and will reccive.an enthusiastic reception. And_the thanks of the. public  are in a great measure due to.Manager  Cranston,- for ��� providing his patrons  with such high-class performances as  have been witnessed hire the last two  nights. To-night "La Mascotte" will  be* '..given, _- and . thj public, will,  best "show, its appreciation of Mr.  Cranston's efforts to elevate the standard of entertainment throughout the  interiorly turniug out in full force.  There is vCgreat flow of oratory-in  thc vicinity of Nelson these days, and  the legal profession appears to be working overtime." W. A". Macdonald ~K. C ,  has just returned*from*Kaslo, where  in company with William Blakemore,  he addressed a large "audience in the  interests of.Mr, Mackintosh'.' * R. S  Lennie is up the Crow's-Nest making  out a good case for the Conservative  candidate. It. W. Hannington has returned to his old stamping-ground al  Slocan, and is said to have simply mesmerized the whole district. Rex Macdonald will open the eyes of the people  of Nakusp-vto. the iniquities of Grit rule,  and - C.~' H^ 'Mackintosh,...in*- company,  -with A. H.-.>IacNeill,of Rossland, is  putting.his case���before the people in  Rosalandau'd Trail".' W. A.-Galliher,  the" Liberal candidate, has-completed  the tour of his constituency, and next  Monday night, at the Opera' House,  will address the citizens of.Nelson. He  will be assisted by S. S. Taylor, of Nelson, and J. A. Macdonald, of Rossland'.  It is believed that Senator Templeman,  of Victoria, and W. W.B. Mclnnes, of  Naraimo, will be present.  What this country needs is definite  legislation, fixing the dates of election  and providing that all elections shall  be held on the same day. In the federal election Nov. 3 the Government  held open hair a dozen constituencies.  In thc event of a close contest these  could have been manipulated to save  an otherwise defeated government. As  it happened they were not needed, bui  that did not make it less wrong and  unfair. Now we have Ontario and  Quebec rushing provincial elections on  the people to take advantage of the  Dominion organization and the prestige  of the federal victory. Even in the  United States which is no model for  any couutry in the matter of runnjng  elections, such abusesdo not exist. Now  that Sir Wilfrid Laurier is in power by  a huge majority he should take steps to  rectify these interferences with the securing of fair electoral reoults.  - - ���   ---       *   e.  remembered the visit of George IV to  Edinburgh; he was present when Ed-.  ward VII passed through the northern  eapital. Colonel Thomson ��� nevor'saw  much in the way of active service, biit  though his later-years and rank were  associated with the Fife Light Horse  he was- once in a-dragoon regiment,  Jfroin. wtiich,-however, he-retired,-ape  parently to undertake the Mastership  of the Atherstode, seven years before  the outbreak oftho Crimean WarU He  mastered tha Athorstone .three times,  and other packs of which lie had control were the Fife, the Bicester and tlie  Pytchley. Among his intimate-) were  the famous sporting novelist \Vbyte-  Melville, and the equally well-known  Devonsh ire parson, Jack Russell. In  him fox-hunting has lost a cornerstone. "  The Nelson Operatic Society, undoubtedly the most accomplished musical organization in the West, will produce "Erminie" on the 27th of January. The parts have all been given  out, and it is believed from what is  known ofthe capabilities-^ those ^vho  will take part, that the forthcoming  production will be in ho way inferior  to those given by the Nelson Operatic  Society in the past. - The rehearsals  will be under the direction of Mr. Melville Parry, which is in itself a guarantee that the presentation of "Er-  minee" will be an artistic triumph.  Thanksgiving Day was observed ac-  cording'to-custom in Nelson. /f he-demand* for -turkeys showed that gener-,  ally the people were determined to have  good dinners, and the .attendance at  the Opera House in the evening further proved that the citizens of Nelson  hal the money and inclination to enjoy themselves. ���  Colonel Anstruther Thomson, who  has just died in his 87th year, was the  oldest hunting.man in the English  society. Born only three years after  the fight of Waterloo (after which, by  tlie way, was named that historic run  of his with thePytchtey), he was in  the crowd that mafficked over the relief of Ladysmith and Klniberley.   H^  This has been a very successful year  for the mining industry in the interior,  und strange to say the districts from  which most was expected are not the  places that have turned out the best.  The Boundary lias maintained its preeminence as a mining district, the Lardeau is rapidly growing in importance,  aiid there is a noticeable revival  throughout the Slocan.  Nelson experienced its first snowfall  to-day, and now the poetry-loving citizens of this place are anxiously awaiting the Daily News to-morrow morning, which is almost certain to reproduce tkat beoutiful' .poem entitled,  "Beautiful Snow."  , yj}-Q. recent election resulted in not a few surprises'  in many constituences and several provinces.   - .For  example, few, we .'think, expected that  Mr. Borden  .and his running'imate would  have been defeated  in  1 -Halifax.    dp to' a very few days prior to the election,  , there were  the  most confident anticipations of their1  return by large rnajorities.     That this ^.anticipation-  was ' not realized was, we  now. learn, brought about'  by.a.verytlargerexpenditureai.the  last moment .of  moneys supplied 'by the  people .of the -United States  terminals of-the .Grand  Trunk  Railway���Portland  ���and -Boston;-chiefly the  former of   these.     These  moneys, stated.to. have been in tbe neighborhood of  $8o,ooQ,.were.tnade;Use of to,debauch the constituency,  and. the result shows, howieffectually that eud was attained.  .   -Again; few ��xp\cted the result which was witnessed'  in the Manitoba constituences.     No person who was  well informed as to the state of political-Sentiment in  for instance Winnipeg, Prov'encber, Selkirk, Portage  la Prairie etc.-expected that**they or  any of them,  would elect members in support of the Federal Government.*1    *T his'"result was for'the moment inexpliao  able to the Conservative partyiAvhV had'be\n led  to'  expect, "judging;from, the  pre-election*sentiment.of  the. people-there;"'an entirely different verdict, and one  markedly in favor of Mr. Bordeii's-policy of Government ownership of the transcontinental railway.  :.    What was the cause of* this marked change ?      It  now turn'jAout that lrwas Caused ���inl va^Very'-simple,,  but not less effective '.manner- the simple process o/  ���arbitrarily strikingK'o*ff from*, the regularly compiled  voters' lists the names of enough Conservative voters  to ensure" tbe election of the Government candidates.  This plan, thong-h simple, is uniq'ue-in its unblushing  effronteiy.     That it was  carried   out-systematically  and with a  supreme  disregard for  the  principles of  honest Governm-nt  by the suffrage'of the electors is  stated to  be  amply proved by evidence now in the  possession ofthe Department of the Attorney-General  of the Manitoba  Government.   -.  The Hon. Robert Rogers, Minister of Public Works  in the Government of Manitoba';.states as follows, in  an interview with him which is reported to have  taken place, when he vvas asked for some explanation  .as'to the unexpected outcome of the vote on the ��rd  instant  "The Conservative party," he said, "vvas absolutely  and clearly cheated in that election in the most highhanded manner ever attempted in any election campaign in the Dominion of Canada.      We were  prepared to meet  the influences of a huge Liberal campaign  fund.     We were confident  that with fair and  honest voters' lists the honest electors of Manitoba  would be uninfluenced by any expenditure of money  in behalf of the Liberal candidates, and would record  their votes in favor of Mr. Borden's policy.     But we  were  not prepared to have constituencies  stolen iu  broad daylight.   What really happened is this.   In a  number of the ridings  we  found  that on election  morning the  regularly prepared  and proper voters'  list, advance copies of  which had  been   furnished us  from  Ottawa, had been gone over  by someone  and  the names of vo.ters recognized as Conservatives had  in man}' cases been crossed*off in red ink.      At various polling stations from .ten to forty Conservatives  had been struck out and men who had lived from 20  to 25  years within the boundaries of the'riding, and  had all the privileges of duly qualified electors,.and  of having their names properly recorded ou the lists,  ,/��.?"-��. �� t*ie'r amazement, when .they came to vote,  that their names had been crossed off. The deputy  returning.officers, in reply to their indignant requests  for an explanation, vouchsafed only the reply that  they fou��d the red line through the names on the  lists'fufnished them."  ** On-whose authority were the names struck out ?"  asked the interviewer.  "We are taking steps to find out," replied Mr.  Rogers. "When the facts were brought to our notice on election day several of the returning officers  were arrested in Winnipeg and taken to the commou  jail, where tbey were afterwards bailed out. In one  instance where a deputy returning officer Was arrested  before Lis ballot box was locked the voters' list used  during the day was examined and it was found that  forty:two names had been marked off in red ink.  Every name" thus crossed was a known Conservative',  and ballots had been refused them when applied for.  For example, in St.,Boniface, a suburb of Winnipeg,  *we have numerous instances of this being done.  " You can easily imagine the indignation of the  electors thus autocratically*' and illegally disfran-_  chised. In some localities''the indignant Conservative electors actually drove the few Liberals.of the lo-  ",.'''* -y *  cality out Jnto.tbe prairies, for the night.    The defeat  of:Mr. W.-W. Colo;mn/ii&{&i_^^ -*��*��  *&ivlereTih iProvench'er, is easily "traceable ;.ta.these  tactics."- *   "���  .' What steps are being taken to "investigate -the  matter and to bring the perpetrators ofthe outrage,to  jnstice?" was asked.  " We are going to sift the whole proceeding to the  bottom and punish the guilty- parties," replied Mr.  Rogers. " No expense or trouble will" be spared.  Tlie Attorney-General's Department has. the matter  in hand and will institute prompt proceedings  to thejull extent and-power of the law. Under the  Criminal Code the offence' committed is most serious!  and the punishment of those responsible will be a  lesson to those who dire to trifle'with the rights and  liberties of the electors. We are not positive yet as  to the exact responsibility for those unparalleled  methods of disfranchising Conservative electors,,but'  we do know that they were'freely employed. Mr.  Nat Boyd's defeat in Portage la Prairie can be easily  accounted for by this tampering with tbe lists. ' Dr.  Roche owes his election to the fact that the attempts  to fraudulently defeat him were nipped in the bud.  Two or three days before the election a Grit heeler  was arrested on the charge of bribing foreign electors.  On his person were found $700 in bills of small denomination, evidently to be used for corrupt purposes. His arrest intimidated the other Liberal  workers in the constituency, and they did not cairy  out the prearranged plans used with such success  and to so great an extent in the other constituencies."  " Do you intend to go ahead with the prosecution  of the returning officers and others arrested ?" queried the reporter.    1  "Yes, at once,and regardless of who may be affected.

For   several   months   past  The  Economist, in common with other  Conservative papers throughout the  Dominion, has contended   lhat   the  terminus of the proposed transcontinental railway would be Portland.  Maine, and that already millions of  dollars had been expended  on terminal facilities at that point.   Naturally, the  Liberals  made  denial   U,  "this contention, bnt   the American  papers, in the States on'tbe Atlantic  seaboard, before  and after the election,   manifested  a   suspicious   in  terest in the  return of Sir  Wilfrid  .Laurier and   his   Government   to  power.    It is suggested that the interest ��f citizens of  Portland took a  more   substantial   form,   and   that  they  contributed  $80,000   towards  the election lund for  Nova Scotia.  It may be interesting at this time to  read the comments on  the result of  the elections.-as  they appear in the  .various New England papers.   The  victory won  by New   England  in  the Canadian elections is still a surprise fbrjcongratulation in the opinion  of the newspapers.      In their  view the future of Portland is now  assured���at tbe  expense of course  of Canadian taxpayers and Canadian ports.     Portland appears to be  reveling in a grand delerium of de  light, nowthat it can freely express  i.itself without furnishing campaign  material for the Conservative party.  A special despatch from Portlind  to the Boston American siys:"Every  ��� business man  in Portland feels 1 ke  celebrating,  for   .the   entire   community looks  forward-to  a   boom  that will  rival any western mining  camp  boom  in  its.-palmi-.-st   days.  Predictions are made that the p��f��u:  lation of Portland will be doubled in  a few years froin the time the Grand  Trunk' railway, from Winnipeg   to  lhe PaciBc coast, is completed   Th-.  building  of .the  extension' of   tin.  load   was assured  by the result o.  the  Canadian   elections, when   the  Liberals won  over    the, Consci-va-  lives."       This  dispatch then.goe.-  on to tell bow real estate owners art  .already, holding  their propeity at a  be opened up in southern central  Canada, from Ottawa to Puget  sound, and that there will be a  largely increased volume of wheat  traffic from these new farm lands to  the Atlantic seaboard. Portland,  being splendidly equipped for the  handling ofsuch traffic will logically  become one of tbe beneficiaries ol  the new business, and we may reasonably expect that the business of  this port will feel the increase in"  some practical ways. The whole  Canadian incident is of deep interest  to the city, in th.t to'some degree  it contributes to the growth and the  welfare ofthe community."  A Poitland special to the Boston  Herald says : "The victory of the  Liberal party in tbe Canadian elections, Thursday, will result in a big  boom for Portland as a shipping  centre. The victory of the Liberal  party means that the Grand Trunk  Pacific railway will be built. Portland is the natural terminus for this  road, which wi 1 be the outlet for  the great grain fields of the Canadian Northwest."  ��� The Portland Argus says : -^In  this transportation business Portland is nio.t deeply interested. By  virtue of it.- gecgrajbical position  and its natural and acquired advan-  ages ls a seaport, Portland must  receive a share of this transportation business by the law of commercial gravitation, which is as  certain ai.d constant as the law of  physical gravitation.

The  fact  that  we  refused to prosecute offenders under  the alien laws was one instance of 1  friendship, and  now we are going | ���  to further demonstrate our deep re- j  gard for the "land of the  free  and  the home of the brave"   by throwing away $150,000,000 or  so  on   a  railway  that   will  make   Portland  boom.

Portland  will have to be the eastern terminal  by reason of its geographical location and superior natural advantages. There should be no jealousy  between the two peoples, as they  have too much in common. When  the proposed Canadian road is  completed it is going to help business in Portland nirtieriaUy. More  products from the west will come  here for shipment to European  ports, which means more work for  our people . It will" also assist in  increasing pur population. There  is no question in my mind that this  city will be"the terminal for the proposed railroad."  Charles "M.

A gold brick  valued  at $2,800  was   taken   from  the  Oyster  mill,  owned  and operated  by tbe Great j  Norther  Mines, Ltd., being the re  suit of the last two weeks' work in  October of the mine and  mill.    A  representative of the Miner  had an  opportunity of seeing    tlie brick.  The  bar  was  of a  bright yellow  color and from  allappearances the  . gold contained  in it  was of good  "value.     On enquiry it was learned  that the gold would go about $16  an ounce; figuring   on  that  basis  the   weight of the brick  would be J  about 175 ounces.     The brick was'  taken out for  shipment by assistant  manager Barney Crilly. The Oyster  .mill is now closed down, but it is  thought that work will be resumed  in a short time.     Various reports  are in circulation regarding the suspension of operations, but the most  plausible are that the new manage-  **��� ment is desirous of straightening  out the affairs of the company preparatory to installing*more machinery for conducting operations on a  larger scale.  >.-   Arthur Gunn, J; Catneron'and E  Graham  have taken a lease on the  Suiiset.
