G., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 19C3,  NUMBER 10  SiJohnMacdonaHsWitlPOLITICALGOSSIP  .._ The Hon. Alexander Mackenzie in  the days of his premiership, and before, was a clear, forcible and logical  speaker, and, though not what one-  would call witty, had that dry Scotch  humor which was sometimes quite a  matchfor Sir -John's fantastic wit, in  its effect upon the House.  In the course of a discussion on the  tariff, Mr. Mackenzie said : ���' I will  call the'attention ofthe hon. gentleman (Sir, John, who was then leader  of the Opposition, Mr. Mackenzie  being Premier) to Mr. Newmarsh. I  have no doubt Mr. Newmarsh will recall the conversation which took place  at Mr. Potter's dinner table."  Several members���"Hear, hear."  Mr. Mackenzie���"I don't understand  the 'hear, hear,' of the hon. members."  Sir John���"Was the hon. gentleman  going to 'Potter's Field ?' "  Mr. Mackenzie���"Both the hon gentleman and I were going to 'Potter's  Field' one day ; but he has got there  now, and is likely to remain there."  Further on in the same debate Mr.  Mackenzie went on to say:  The hon gentleman (Sir John) says  Canada is young, and that it must be  led gently until it grows up to manhood. But who is to be its nurse?  Who is to take care of the child ?"  Sir John���"Its dry nurse."  "A very dry nurse," replied Mr.  MacKenzie, not taking the allusion to  himself. "The lion.-gentleman reminds one of the man standing in a  tub and trying to lift himself by the  two handles."  Later in the same debate Mr. Mackenzie, alluding to the raising of the  tariff from 15 to 17iper cent., was saying, "No, sir, that was purely a "revenue policy," when Sir John broke in  with : -'It was both protection and  revenue. Try another rise and get  more revenue."  "I would much rather take a rise  out of my hon. friend," replied Mr.  Mackenzie.  ."You have done that already," good-  huinoredly returned Sir John.  WWWWWWWWWW  MIKADO.  The Nelson Operatic Society is an institution of-  wbich every citizen feels proud. It is composed exclusively of local amateurs, and during its existence^  has produced three "or four operas. Those productions have been marked by excellence rarely attained  by amateurs, and have been among the most enjoy-  abLe events in the amusement line in Nelson. This  organization has shown its public spirit by getting up  the Mikado as au extra Fair attraction, and those  who have witnessed the rehearsals express tbe belief  that the performance will be of the same meritorious  character as the ones that preceded it. Every visitor  to the Fair should witness the production of the  Mikado.  JL/Ocal and  X rovincial  The tAvo  parties are now  getting  down   to  close  quarters.   The   coast  cities have nominated their candidates  and gone into the fight  in  earnest.  At Victoria, the  Conservatives have  placed a  very  strong  ticket  in the  field.   Messrs. McPhillips, Helmcken  i.  and Hay ward should run well, but the  Liberals have two exceedingly strong  men^ Messrs. Drury and MeNiven.  Either one of these is likely to be  elected, and if both, the result will be  two Conservatives and two Liberals.  Mr."Drury ran for the Dominion  House three years ago and came near  being elected. Mr. McNiven is a  Labor-Liberal, and stands high with  his fellow-workingmen. He has good  ability, moderate in his views and conscientious in his motives and will get a'  great number of votes on account of  friendship. Men of his "stamp would  be useful in the Legislature, and if it  were not that he is impregnated with  Liberalism, The Economist would  like to see him elected.  At Vanconver, the Conservatives  appear to have considerably the best  of it, and it may be that they will be  able to elect four out of their five candidates. A strange thing is the belief  expressed in many quarters that Mr.  Martin is likely to be defeated.   Many  of liis former friends have deserted  him, giving as a reason hia devotion  to the interests of Mr. Dunsmuir. In  the other parts' of the province the  Conservatives hove certainly the best  of it. In two ��� or three constituencies  the Liberals will Aot have a candidate  in the field, the latest to throw up the  sponge being Dr, Sanson in Lillooet.  ��� The bone of contention in so far as  the Nelson campaign is concerned is  not what the Conservatives or the  Liberals have done, for Canada, or  which party is best calculated to advance the interests.'of British Columbia. Old interests Save been ruthlessly  dashed aside,.and -the discussion has  resolved itself into the momentous sar-  torial inquiry,' wKere did' Candidate  Taylor buy-his last; suit of clothes ?  Undoubtedly this question of domestic  economy wilL cut some congealed water in the result'of the election, and  justly so. If \\ Sin be-shown that  Candidate Taylor has dared to emulate  the example of Candidate Houston's  trainer, the influential Starkey, who it  isdarkly hinted-imports bis clothing  from -'ome, the Liberal candidate  should be disqualified, disfranchised  and guillotined. , Lord -Beaconsfield  owed much of his success in political  life lo his London tailor, and may it  not be within the range of human possibility that Candidate Taylor, by  patronizing the great tailors of the  cast, seeks to win bis way to political  preferment, and incidentally encompass the downfalL of plain - men,  who have been content to wear hand-  me-downs, and thus encoumge home  industry ? Of course, there may not  be much in this argument, but it is  humbly submitted in the hope that it  will throw a little electric light on a  controversy so well calculated to breed  a new school of statesmen.  ' The Liberals and "the Houstonites  held ��� 'grand rallies"' at their respective  rooms last Saturday eve'ning. The reports of the number attending each  are somewhat conflicting, the Liberals  claiming that there were 257 at their  meeting, while the Houstonites could  -muster only 70 strong. On the other  hand, the Houston ites claim to have  had more than 70, bub do not give the  exact number.  W. A. Macdonald, IL C, will speak  at Moyie this evening in the interests  of Thomas- Caven,- the Conservative  candidate. Mr. Macdonald will aid-  dress meetings at several other places  in the Kootenays during the campaign.  ����������������������������������������������������������������!�������������������������������������������.��������� ���������������������������������+������������������������������������������������� ������+��j  The exhibition building is all ready  to put on tbe roof.

Much regret will be felt at the au-  noun cement of the illness of Hon. R.  McBride. Coming at the present  time, the premier's illness is particularly unfortunate.  The recreation grounds are being put  in shape for the lacrosse match next  week. The hill in the corner on the  Vernon street side of the grandstand  is being levelled down, whieh will  give a great deal of additional room for  matches in future.    .  The appointment of Mr. Goodeve, of  Rossland, to the important office of  provincial secretary in the Conservative government will give general sat  isfaction throughout the Kootenays.  Mr. Goodeve is a man of splendid natural ability, and is certain to bring  credit to the government of which he  is now a member.  >7"i,  -tr.T I  Tbe Grand Fork Sun has been in- .  creased iu  size  and    otherwise   im-~~  proved.

This  method had  % the disadvantage of leaving doubt in the minds of the-Britishers as  to the "accuracy of the descrlp-  !  tions given to them, and it would be idle to deny that in many cases deceit was practiced, which has  I    in a large measure discredited this province in the minds of the   financial magnates of the  world's  ��� capital.  % For this reason the visit to British Columbia, and especially to this city, of a large number of the  * , ��� y _7         $    members of the Empire's chamber of commerce is'especially important  and   gratifying.   \ These  ��� gentlemen have seen for themselves the wealth that awaits development and will undoubtedly give  a good report of this part of His Majesty's dominions in the quarter that we still look to for the  means of supporting our larger enterprises.  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������������-�� ���������������������������*>��� ���������������Q �������������������������  All the encouraging features of tbe  mining industry still prevail. .

' ���' - i*  The Nelson  Industrial Exhibition  The final preparations for the exhibition under the auspices of the Nelson Agricultural m:d Industrial Society are now being made, and the promoters have every reason to believe that their eflbi ts  will be crowned with success. Nothing that could possibly be done to bring about the desired result has been left undone by Mr. Amiable. He 1 as been untiring in his efforts to accomplish something that will be of benefit to Nelson in particular and the whole district of Kootenny in general. It  is worth while noting that the entries in every department will far exceed the expectations ol the  promoters ofthe fair.    Particularly will this be the case in the mineral and fruit departments.  Tbe amusement features will-be the best yet seen at an exhibition in British Columbia. The  lacrosse match is sure to attract a Urge num1>er of visitors ; indeed it is probable tbat we will have  the largest number of visitors during the two days ofthe fair yet seen in Nelson.  Let evervone work to jnake it a success. A  .. The Shamrock  lacrosse Club, of Montreal, has -  done more than any other organization in Canada to  - -keep"alive the national game.

The team sent out this year  , will be equal to any in past years, and it will give the  Nelson men a chance to measure themselves against  a crack team of the east.     That Nelson will beat the  - visitors is the hope of many, but just as many hope   ���-  that the game wilLbe a mauly exhibition of lacrosse.

EDITORIAL  COMMENT.  The Conservatives of Rossltuul are  to be  congratulated and commended  upon their choice of a candidate for the  Legislature.   Mr. A.  S. Goodeve is a  reputable and successful merchant, n  man  of unblemished reputation and  rioted for sound sense and intelligence.  It is iu the election of such men that  the hope of the province liC3. We have  suffered long enough from the professional politician whofe vote is known  to be always   for sale nnd who have  in the past been numerous enough to  bring the whole Legislative body into  disrepute.     Happily   Lhe  majority of  the Conservative  candidates (we are  are very sorry that we cannot say all,)  are of the same class as M"r. G oodeve.  When the question of redistribution  of constituencies came up in tho Dominion House of Commons, Sir "Wilfrid Laurier in his usual vuguo nnd  pretty language appealed for justice  and equity in the treatment of the  ' question'. A committee, of Liberals  and Conservatives the former in the  majority of course; have reported a bill  to the House, over the protest of the  whole Conservative majority. The  most conspicuous feature of the bill as  drafted is the representation in Ontario. If constituencica vote as they did  in 1900, each Conservative member  from that province in future will represent about 45,000 people, while his  Liberal colleagues will repre cut loss  than 20,000 each. .  Mr. Balfour has spoken on the fiscal  policy of the Empite:   As might have  been expected, he does not agree with  extremists of any type.   He points out  clearly that Great Britain's position of  adherence to Free Trade absolutely is  ���  no longer tenable, has hi  fact already  .   been the means used by rivals to injure her.   He docs' not auk for a sacri-  " fice of home interests for a speculative  advantage for the colonics, hut he asks  that Britain immediately take slops to   regain her fiscal freed cm to be used fur  lier own advantage and that   of the  colonies as Lhe developments of tiie future may dictate.   The  1'iiti.sh papers  almost unanimously commend his wisdom and moderation, and it is eou-  -~ ceded that the rumored breach in the  Cabinet is no longer imminent.   Contrary to the expeetalioiisof some, Premier Balfour proves   himself greater  than any of his subordinates or rivals  and may be counted upon to guide the  destinies of the Empire wiih the same  wisdom aud skill as liis late illustrious  uncle.

No meeting has  been held for months, though a general election is tit hand. We now request you to call a general meeting of  the Liberal-Conservative Association  for Wednesday evening in the board of  trade rooms, swh meeting being for  the purpose of considering all matters  pertaining to the welfare of the pnr.ty  and to endeavor to so unite the "party,  as to ensure the election of a Conservative candidate.

HAOi/fAiiA  ' \  This was accompanied by the following personal letter from Mr. Macdon-  ..ald:   A  "  Extract from The Kklsos Economist,   August  Fred Starkej', President Liberal-Conservative Association, City:  Dear Sir,���I-am" anxious to make  one last effort towards barmony before  Jt is too late. I enclose a request  signed by a few of the many who desire a meeting. The decision aud responsibility rest with you. If you decide to call the meeting, I would suggest notice being inserted in the morning paper. Trusting tbat you wilj'do  so, Av. A, Macdonaljx  This requisition was not treated  with even the scant courtesy, of a reply, which, everything considered, is  perhaps not to be marvelled "at. The  only sign given that the president had  ever received the letter, was the more  prolific use of foul language by-the  ������gang" on the streets to express their  opinion of respectable Conservatives.  When no . answer to the requisition  was received, thirty or forty members  of the party earae together and decided  to call the public meeting of Conservatives which was held in the board of  trade rooms Wednesday evening. The  Houstonites refused", to attend tbat  meeting, although one.or two of their  number, it is said, as is their custom on  occasions of this character, availed!  themselves of aconvenient post to witness the proceedings. The attendance  at that meeting was so large as to leave  15th.  no doubt ofthe 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 secretary.  It was moved by W. A. Macdonald,  seconded by Geo. Steed, and carried  unanimously :  Whereas Mr. Frod 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 meetings arranged with him to be called  for that purpose, and has also failed to  comply with or even had the courtesy  to reply to a request signed by acknowledged Conservaliyes for a public  meeting of the association :  Therefore this public meeting of Conservatives approves of the calling of  this meetingso that the members ofthe  party as a whole may have an opportunity of being heard, and further this  meeting con demns the course pursued  by the president of the association and  declares his conduct betokens lack of  fairness and true appreciation of his  position and an apparent desire to act  solely in tbe interest of a portion only  ofthe party.
