What is  the explanation of his plan of deferring  till to-morrow what many thought  should be done to-day ? One authority thinks it is " the result of some inexplicable calculation of policy." That  is rather. Indefinite. "With regard to  questions of appointment lie probrbly  reasoned, that by delay further light  would be thrown on the subject, and  give the opportunity for a possibly better candidate to appear, while it would  be apt to tire out any applicant of  ."whom he wanted to be rid, and in some  eases be a test of the perseverance of the  candidate. Deferred favors, when they  did come, would also be more valued  by aspirants. " When remonstrated  with on the seeming folly of dissap-  pointiug fifty persons, whose applications miglii easily^have been forestalled,  and the opposite policy of Sir Francis  Hineks had been held up in contrast,  be has, in vindication of his own course,  pointed to the fact that tlie life of his  administration had been much longer  than; that of the' gentleman named..  It may be that when a large 11 umber of  men, more or less influential, have  asked favors from the head ofthe government, they fee! to a certain extent  iu his power, and that to do anything  that might look like desertion would be  a disgrace. Once in quilting ollice, Sir  John gave mortal offense to his follow-  f ers by leaving, as a prize to his successor, half a hundred offices vacant; but  on a subsequent occassion, resolvinc;  not again to subject himself to such a  reproach, he ran too ii��iiir> the wind by  milking a large number of appointments when his administration was In  ainoribound condition and ulntost viiv  tually defunct."  It is known to a few of Si r:John's intimate friends that be "was offered a  peerage but declined that high Imperial honor, as he did not consider it in  accord with the institutions of a democratic country like Canada. One day  in the House he was rallied upon the  rumor that ho was to accept a peerage,  and a member asked him what title be  was going to take. He replied: "I  will be Lord To-morrow." No one was  fonder of making a joke at his own expense on this nickname than he.  Some years ago, Mr. David Boyle, of  the Canadian institute, ToVmto,. and  Mr. G. Mercer Adam formed a plan to  write the life of Sir John. They sent  a note to him explaining their intention, and stating that tuey would call  upon him personally. Mi. Boyle, in  due course, visited Sir John at his office. Having sent in his card he was  u shered into the presence of the Premier, who greeted hi in with a sinlle and  said:-: ���" Oh ! you are thegeiitlewari.wbo  has come to take my lite. But,'.'he  added, brandishing a long niter-iii' his  hand, "you see I am aruiedl" Having  thus made Mr. Boyle feet at.home; tie  said he.should he glad to furnish tlietn  with any information at his disposal.  The scheme, however, felL! through as  far as Mr. Boyle was concerned.  ews of the  M  mes  ���The Poplar Creek excitement has not  abated, and the probabilities are tliat  a*town of considerable magnitude will  spring up there within a few months.  Already some Nelson merchants have  made arrangements for the.opening of  branch stores there and mo're will follow.

Since; .that'  shipment the principal work done in  the "mine ivas to make an upraise to  Ittun^t wUlTan^  has been completed, giving the m-inea  much better system of ventilation.  With this work finished more ore will  be extracted and heavier, shipments  made to the smelters.  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  riioeniv Pioneer.  Robert H. Anderson, formerly superintendent at the 35.-C. mine, now  occupies a similiar position at the  Leltoi mine at Rossland.  It is said that the Oro Denoro mine  is looking better all the time. About  a dozen men are employed there now,  and the force will be increased before  long.  As  shipments sire   being increased  again at the Snowshoc, the force, of  men, which was tetnpjr.iily  reJauid  is again being augmented..  Another cleanup has' been made at  the Waterloo, Camp McKinney, stamp  mill, being 343.9 ounces of gold, worth  ��5,120. Within six weeks the mine  has realized $.3,000 from the iniil.  It is now anticipated that the closedown of the Granby smelter, for the  purpose of connecting the two new  furnaces, the erection of which is now  being completed, will occur about the  1st of September, for ten days.  Several capitalists i'rmu Toronto,  have been visiting tlie coal Holds of  the North Fork of Kettle river, accompanied by W. Blakemore, mining engineer, preparatory to 'beginning work  on the company's claims. In the parly  were Hon. E. J. Davis, commissioner  ��� of crown grants in the Ontario government, and Chas. G-. Vun Normaii, of  Toronto.  YMIR MINING NOTES.  Ymir Mirror.  J. J. Budd, of Spokane, is in the  camp. He has gone up to examine the  Ark claim. It adjoins ihe Wootoo-  mooloo on Sixteen-mile Creek.'  Some beautiful samples of pre, have  been brought inTrom the JUioda, on  Quartz Creek. They are now in the  hands of tbeassayer, and his returns  will be given next week.  Work on the Porto lltco has started  again under thesuperintentleiiceof G.  II. Barn hart, one of the most experienced mine managers in the country.  The staff is principallyengaged in development work, sothiitjt will probably be'-some time before the mill is put  in motion.  ��#"  SS  ;# ��.

Besides  this John Houston woiked as he never did before, to get his men there. Big posters, were to be seen  everywhere, dedgers were circulated broadcast,'.-add.it is alleged that eyen Liberals were appealed  to.cn tbe grounds of personal friendship to lend a helping hand. But The Economist desires to  be absolutely fair in this matter, and has no hesitatioii.in- admitting tb^t amongst the number present  and chosen as delegates, were many just as conscientious Conservatives as those who are opposed to  M r. Houston, and this paper has no license to speak harshly of their course or .question their fidelity  to their party.    We wish in this article simply to sum up the  facts as they present themselves ac-  - cording to the only available evideuce.  The anti-Houstonites at their meetings at various times have had in the neighborhood of one hun- ���  dred, .voters.    On the eight lists signed pledging opposition to Mr. Houston there are one hundred and  thirty-four already and one hundred and six more are reported to have said they will not vote for Mr.  "Houston under any circumstances, but for obvious reasons refrained  from  signing a list:    Atthe  public meeting of Conservatives held Wednesday evening to protest against Mr.   Houston  being a  candidate and denouncing Starkey, there were fifty-two.present, although the Daily Kews gave the  number   as   45, and  to  be   rather under the mark than^-above it, we take  the latter'figures.    Of  _ course theirajority of those who  attended" the various meetings  are included in the number who  either signed the lists, or for personal reasons refrained from doing so, but stated emphatically they  would not vote for Mr. Houston.    However, an effort has been made to get a fairly complete estimate  -of Ccnservatites'jftliowiU not vote for John- Houston, and, the^number is variously placed at from  two hundred-and twenty-five to two hundred and fifty.   -To be .within  the mark we place it at two ,  ^ -C- ���J--<^|    r .-.I.i    .  ... -     ">4     r  .__ *,.     -^.|.-l    <     > - ���    1  hundred.   " - ;        ''_���   '' ' ������*������'���  Mr. Houston's meetings for the election of delegates give some idea of that gentleman's party  strength.    He and his. most aggressive workers put forth every effort to get his friends there, the ar"  gument being freely used that it was necessary to have every one of his supporters there to appal the  enemy,  and they faithfully responded to the  call of duty.    Besides, many Liberals who believe the  success of Mr. Taylor depends entirely on keeping Mr.;Hbuston in the field, are said to:have dropped  '  jn to help along the good work.    Some who have not taken aiiy pa'rtin  the dispute between the two ���  sections  were also present  and  voted for the  delegates.    Assuming that every'one present wasa.  Houstonite7ar.d quite the reverse is the  case, there were,  according to the Daily News, 'between'*'-  seventy, and eighty, iucluding Starkey, atthe East ward meeting, and about twenty-seven at the West  ^wai.d=.meeting^  say ther'total was sbity seven, but let that pass.    We are not juggling with figures, but  taking them  from sources believed to be independent.  Of the number, two hundred or more, who will not vote for Mr. Houston, all  will vote for. Mr.  Lennie, and it is quite  probable  that be will increase .'it by  one hundred and  fifty with  three  candidates in tbe field.   "To the one hundred who have promised to vote for Mr.  Houston, we will  add an even greater percentage, say one hundred votes, or two hundred votes in all.   These figures  will afford some idea ofwhat Mr. Houston is up against. .  in   hv ���_j'-i-;^��'-i  ��� '���   ,'vv...   .... ���'���    '���;  %VV^^VWV^VVV��<VVVVVWVM^^^^^W^^^V^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^A^^^^/^W^^^>r��  Reasons for Opposing  s  Grand Forks Suu.

Conservatives and unswerving liberals are prepared to unite  'on-; 'orieibiivg, and that is the present  situation In British Columbia demands  the best blood in both parties. The Liberals in the majority of eonstituences  have selected their men, and in nearly  every instance the strongest available  candidates have been put forward.  Only In a few cases have the Conservatives made their selections, but they  have been looking out for the best men.  There will be a majority of the Conservative candidates selected to-day, and  it is to be hoped no mistake will be  made. Tbe result ofthe election will and  should depend upon the calibre of the  men put forward.  Mr. W. C. Wells, formerly Chte'f Commissioner of Lauds and Works, will  come out os,an Independent candidate,  but many Liberals state thnt tbey do  not believe the rumor. A- few people  believe that if Mr. Wells decides.to ran  as an Independent the Conservatives  will run a Conservative-Labor candidate or give their support to a straight  Labor man ; butthe latter is not at all  likely aud the former is very a improbable. . ' -  W. B. Ross, the solicitor, is out in a  letter to the B'ree Press of Fernie announcing that he Is a receptive candidate for tho Conservative nomination.  H. H. Bentley is also in the Held, and  the choice is between those two.

A rumor is afloat that  At Victoria, it ia said that Mr; Chris.  Spencer, son of Mr. David Spencer,"��  well known merchant, will be a candidate.     The Conservatives , will have  Hon. A. E. McPhillips in the field, and'  probably Messrs. H. D. Helmcken, ex-  Mayor Kayward and Mr. T. Baker.  Dr.   Baker, Conservative,   may ���" ��� run  against Mr. T.-W. Patterson in North  Victoria.   Mr. Eberts will probably run  in Saanich, and Mr.C. E.Pooley will  tn all likelihood be the Government  candidate in Esquimalt.    Capt.- Clive  Pbillips-Woolley, it is said, will probably be the Conservative candidate  in Alberni.  A large and enthusiastic meeting of  the Nanaimo Conservatives Wednesday evening was addressed by^Hon.  Mr. Green, who was warmly received,  aiid gave a splendid address. An aggressive campaign was initiated, and  decision was taken to nominate a candidate on Saturday, "August -22nd.-  Commlttee rooms were selected.  There were 976 voters registered - at  Nelson.

A proposal is on foot to construct a  loek at the Gorge, Victoria Arrm, in .or  der to'make thatstretchofwater available for navigation by steam launches  at all periods of the tide. Mr. Topp, the  City Engineer, after looking into the  matter, has given it as his opinion that  for a few thousand dollars an automatic lock could be arranged at the  narrowest point; which would retain  tbe waier beyond at high tide level.  Thin would give ample depth for the  launches at all times, and would add a  hundred fold to the present delightful  trip on the waters of the Arm. Such  an: improvement would more than  double the length of the present run, t  and would be one of the 11 nest courses  to be found anywhere.

In dealing with the political ��IUltl��  tion in Nelson so far an_ it concerns tbe  Conservative party; this paper has no  desire to add fuel to the flames, but  rather to place those interested in ro.;-  . session of the real faotsasthey exist.  It is doubtful if titany timo tbe matters  In dispute oauld nave been   adjusted  so as to meet the pleasure of both sides,  but.it is quite   oertain  tbat the one  man, who by virtue of his position as  president ol the Conservative Association   should have  been  foremost  in  tbe effort to bring about a satisfactory  solution of tbe problem, has on the con-  tiary, been most persistent in fomenting the trouble, and this all the time  under the "guise that he was for peace.  Iu doing so, Mr. Starkey only deceived  one man, and that was himself. -Some  may   practice   deception  for months  wtth a considerable degree of success,  others may practice It for years, but  Mr. Starkev's   limit is about   thirty  seconds.    ' However, it was Lliouxht  wise that every effort at a settlement  should he exhausted before going the  length of the meeting of Conservative*  at the Board of Trade rooms last Wednesday evening.   All that the majority  of Conservatives wanted was a meeting in which matters pertaining to the  welfare of the party might be discussed,  and with this desire in view, M r. W.  A. Macdonald, K. ���., as far back as  last June addressed a letter to the president of the local association suggesting  the wisdom of an early meeting ofthe  character referred to.    Mr. Macdonald  was a member of the executive, but  the president under one pretenseor.ati-  other from time to time deferred the  meeting.     As a matter of fact, Mr.  Houston did hot court investigation,  and Mr. Starkey refused to acceds to  tbe polite requests of Mr. Macdonald.  When it was known that-Mr. McBride  was coining here M r. Starkey. was iigal a  approached, this time with the view of  representatives of both sides to the dispute appearing before Mr. McBrido to  adjust their grievances, the proinier to  sented to this and nam. d his men,-but  foiled to keep faith with" Mr. Macdonald aud the gentlemen ap_Mliited frotii  tbo Other aide.

This was accompanied by the following personal letter from Mr. Macdonald :  Fred Starkey, President Liberal-Conservative Association, City :  Dear SIK,���I am anxious to make  one last effort towards harmony before  it ia too late. I enclose a request  signed by a few of the many who desire a meeting. The decision and responsibility rest with you. If you decide to call the meeting, I would" suggest notice being inserted in the morning paper. Trusting that you will do  so, W. A. Macdonald.  This requisition wasL not treated  wil b even the scaut. 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 came 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 that  meeting, although one or two of their  number, it is said, as is their custom ou  occasions of this character, availed  themselves of n convenient post to wit-  iiess the proceedings. The attendance  at tbat meeting wag so large aat to leave  no doubt of the" widespread feeling of  resentment which prevails "ahibngst  Nelson Conservatives at the outrageous  coinluct of President Starkey. The  -ojiai^^t^jw^in^^ _Stoddort  petuate dissension and array one portion of the party against the other :  And whereas the seeds of dissecsiou  have been so well sown by Mr. Houston that dissension: now prevails in  the ranks:  And whereas the conduct of Mr.  Houston as a member of the legislative  assembly has not been such as to reflect  credit upon the city of "NfeUou or tend  towards obtaining tbe support of self-  respecting Conservatives :  And whereas, Mr. Houston, aside  from his conduct towards local Conservatives, and as a member, has  through his newspaper showed his  disloyalty aud desire to injure the  llrst Conservative government of British Columbia by slurring remarks as  to the premier and his cabinet, and  publishing statements *s ���"�� the likelihood of the defeat of all members of the  government who might contest Victo  rla and Vancouver:  And whereas Mr, Houston has  openly stated ou the streets of Nelson  that if unsuccessful at a convention he  would run as an Independent, thus  giving further proof of his disloyalty  and forfeiting any right to Conservative confidence and support:  Therefore, this public meeting of  Liberal-Conservatives of Nelson condemns the actions of John Houston  through his newspaper iu belittling  tbe Conservative government:  And further, this meeting declares  that neither party loyalty nor u desire  to hold Nelson for the Conservatives  should compel a sacriftce of self-respect  by supporting Mr, Houston as a candU  date of the Conservative party, and de*  sires to repudiate him as a representative of tbe Conservative party,  Tbe next resolution condemned the  maimer in which the gold-brick con-  ventioa was called, and was moved by  Frank Fletcher, seconded by K. M.  Macdonald, and carried unanimously :  ���i Resolved that the election of delegates and convention called for, the  city of Nelson are irregular and uot  binding upon Conservatives':"'  Further resolved that uside Iroin  such irregularity the election of dele-'  gates; as outlined might aptly be  termed a geld-brlck proposition for  John Houston's benefit, as with a pre-:  ponderance of Conservative votes in  .the west ward a majority of delegates  is granted to the east ward, where Mr.  Houston's strength lies:  Further resolved that in the opinion  of this meeting the election of delegates  aud convention so unfairly called  should be ignored.       J  The meeting closed with the follow  ing resolution, moved by Mr. Bradley,  seconded by Mr. Lermie, and carried  unanimously:..  That'while resolutions passed this  evening deal with difficulties in the  local ranks of the Conservative party,  we desire to place on record our atlegi-  ence to the Conservative party und,onr  confidence in Hon.

He "had been Sir  Allan McNab's coachman, 'and was  about the only one of the household  who could manage the gouty old man.  In following his avocation he kept to  the seat of government in all its move  from city to city. For thirty-eight  years he had driven Sir John, and  from the time of Confederation, the  Premier seldom rode with anyone  else. When Sir John was defeated  and resumed his old profession at Toronto, Buckley went there too. When  Sir John saw him driving along one  day he hailed him, and went oyer to  his cab to shake hands. During all  the time Sir John was out of power  this faithful old man insisted on driving him about, and refused to accept a  cent for the service���a circumstance  that could not be attributed to mere  policy, ns there seemed littlo likelihood that Sir John ever would be Premier again. It could not have been  Buckley's good looks nor the pompous  appearance of his vehicle that had won  the favor of Sir John, for in former  days his old sorrel horse and lumbering, faded, saggy-doored cab were tlie  reverse of attractive, while the wizened, wrinkled face���over which .a  short sandy grizzly beard bristled out  in all directions, and matched well  ��� with a pair of shaggy eyebrows, from  beneath which a funny, pair of eyes  twinkled���wns more curious than  handsome. A curious little cap .housed to wear made his head look  smaller than it really was. But Sir  John in this odd figure read the one  trait he required in a man for this service, and that was faithfulness. "Under  an exterior that seemed to cover only  O indolence and ignorance," no one hid  more fidelity, discretion or punctuality. On whatever business Sir John  required him, Buckley was alvyMys  there, and on time; and no paltry1    consideration     of . an.^   extra.  litre would induce him to risk the 'disappointment of Sir John. He might  be lit front of the Parliament Buildings  knowing that he had a clear hour be.  fore Sir John would be likely to come,  but though his cab wasa public one he  would not move for any oflVrs. One  duy Lady Macdonald came out ofthe  Parliament Buildings and observed to  Buckley that, as it would be twenty  minutes before Sir John would be out,  she would take a spin down to a place  i 11 Wellington street. "No, my lady/'  said Buckley, humbly but linnly,  Wliou he objected and she still pressed  trisu, "[ can't leave this spot till I get  the word from St. John." It was a  kind of heroism like Mrs. O'Dowd's at  the'.Battle of Waterloo���nnd, by the  way, expressed in the same words,  Sir Frederic de Win ton wanting urgently to communicate'with the Governor-General one day, made the same  request with all the authority of his  Luyh office, but Buckloy declined in si  more blunt manner still, adding, as he  jerked his thumb oyer his shoulder,  " There's plinty av cabs down there at  chc sthand." Buckley used to think  tbtit no living man dressed with the  same taste as Sir John, and what i n-  creascd his affection for his chieftain  was that the Premier would never allow the old man to carry his parcels  from the cab. When he would insist  -.on'doing it, Sir John would say, "No,  no, Buckley, I am justas younga man  iis you are," and 'would run up the  steps with..his. own books. Buckley  would often contrast this with the  autocratic way with which some.of the  junior departmental clerks would order liim to carry a parcel up to the  office, while tripping up empty-handed  themselves; and then'.'carrying the coil-j  trust on to every other member of Par-i  lLaineut, would sum up with, "He's-  the most whunderfill man in the.  ���ivorruld I"'--. Once Buckley, after taking'  Sir John home, on an occassion when  he was somewhat unsettled, drove up  amongst a group of members in front  of -the. Buildings,When he was stopped and one ot the group said  they wished  to ask him. a question,  ���-..:��� ���-���������    -o   j  and as it was important they hoped  und believed he would tell them the  truth. Buckley promised lie would.  " Then," said the questioner, "wasSir  John tight when you drove him down  just now?" "What do you mane?"  said lluekley, looking for'some road of  escape, -'Was he in liquor,���was he  drunk?" "Shure," replied Buckley,  "I have driven hiru all these years,  and! nirer seen him in better health  in me life thin to-day." The party  h:ul made a bet concerning Sir John,  and were to decide it by Buckley. It  wasa clever cut for the old cabman between a collision with the chariot  wheels of his conscience on the one  side and the ditch of falsehood on the  other; but Lt.waS agreed by "all that Sir  John himself could not have steered  through more cleverly.  One. morning Buckley greeted the  Premier with "J'm glad to see ye look-  in' so well this morning, Sir John; and  miry ib.Wcsa long time before I see'any--  body else in yer shoes." "You won't,  Buckley,5'.replied Sir John, "as long  ns.I'A-e got them on!"   ���  When ilie Premier was in the throes  of his Inst illness, Buckley was on hand  to render his humble-service dqy and  night, and as the tears rolle'd down his  cheeks, he said to a reporter : "I have  driven Sir John for thirty-eight years,  winter and-summer; and now they  tell me'he must die. I have never  known him to be out of temper; never  known Iihn. to say a cross word, no  matter bow rouglr the road might be  or how careless I might drive. Do you  remember his grey suit of clothes? One  time I called for him and he had on  another suit. As he Was going to meet  some important people I siiid to him  (for t knew him.;so welll.could-take  liberties- with him); I said,'iSir JTohn,  w;hy'clidti'tyou put on -your grey suit?'  You-look-much-better in ir.' ������'���' Is thn.tr  so, Buckley?' said be, and he. wept and  changed his clothes. * *D.eai"> dear,  they say there is no hope.

At a meeting of Jnlin Houston's friends on'Thursday evening  last,- Lhat gentleni ti stated his reason why he alone should be the  leader of the Conservntive party in Nelson. They may be summed  up in tlie claim tliat be is a practical politician, and the party, must  have a practical politician at its bead in order to be successful. Curiously enough be admitted that during the whole tiin* he had  been a member of t e Local House he bad been striving to get into  the government party and failed, His aim was iiodoubt worthy of  the man, but his lack of success in its 'accomplishment"'would  throw doubt upon his claim to being a practical politician. Agfain,  a politician who can so affect the Jeelings, or, if you -wish, prejudices of scotcs, if not hundreds, of membersof the p3rty to which  hcclairus to adhere, as to cause them to unite in pledging thetn-  sercs to oppose bis election, can scarcely be considered a practical  politician,-.if that term means one'.'capable of leading tbe party to  victory.  Some wonder has been expressed as to how Mr. Houston reconciles the hearty, honest, blunt statement made by him at this  meeting that it was tbe duty of every man that had any manhood  in him to declare for one party or the other, with his intemperate  statement made recently on the street that if the Consei vattives  would not have him as a candidate he would run as an independent. Really that soundslike the outburst of a cantankerous school-  hoy who wont play unless he is allowed to have tlie bat all the time,  rather than the diplomatic,' soothing utterance of a practical politician. .; .  .Fred Irvine ��fc t.'o. are ytlvertl.-ing  summer', aii&*f*ull goods, and report  their HjldsWatiicr sale as having been  a great Miieeei^H.
