 ���'&MC?f^  ��� V  General Comment.  During the past week, Hon. Chas.  H. Mackintosh  has beon visiting the-  towns along tlie Crow's Nost Pass, and  from all accounts, he was well received  everywhere,   lie was accompanied by  Mr. Blakemore,   and  meetings  wen-  held at all the nlaces visited, both gentlemen addressing thc electors.     Mr.  Blakemore    returned  lust night, and  drawing liis conclusions from what ho  has seen and heard, lie is inclined to  think Mr. Mackintosh will curry Kootenay.     Of course, it is essential  that  Conservatives everywhere should turn'  out and do all  the work they can foi  their candidate until tho last ballot is  counted.        Thc   battle  for   "Better  Terms" for British  Columbia is none  the less urgent because a Liberal Govern ment  has been returned to power;  iudeed, Mr. Laurier might reasonably  conclude tnat British Columbians were  satisfied   with   existing  conditions il  they returned a solid deputation  from  ' this Province.   The emphasizing of the  principle of Government ownership nl  railways  is just as obligatory on_ the  voters as   it was before   the general  election,  and all  who believe  in   it,  should give evidence of the faith that  is in them by voting for Mr. Mackintosh on the 22ud of December.   Meetings will  be held at  dilTorent points  in the constituency until election day,  the .Nelson meeting having been arranged to take place next week.  and it was estimated that it would cost  i little over $4,000. The six"1 lots recom-  monded belong to Victoria parties, and  Ihe assessed value is.about ��1,100.  There is an asset of $1,5(50 in the present school building and lots. The  meeting recived the report, and after  somo discussion it was resolved that  Harry Wright, tho member for Ymir  riding, be requested to urge on ,tbe  Educational Department the necessity  of a new school for Fairview,.and that  he be further requested at his earliest  convenience to interview the owners of  the lots refeired to and o^nin information as to the price they will accept  for the same.  The London Times has a lengthy  article oil the B. C. exhibit of fruit at  the Royal Horticulturist's Society's  show in London. Amongst other  flattering things, that paper says an  opportunity was afforded of comparing  the Colonial apples with somo fine  home-grown collections, and while it  could not be said thut lhey were superior to the best English specimens,  it had to be admitted that they approach them very closely in color,  shape and flavor. Moreover, the British Columbia fruit was in good condi-  ' tion,'notwithstanding the fact that it  had beeu picked as early as September  last, and had.travelled 3,000 miles- by  train and 3,000 miles'by steamer.--The  fruit was not only] uniformly graded.  but was free from insect attack, which  was mainly due to the legislative enactment of- recent years. After describing the different varieties exhib-  tcd and referring to the vast areas of  fruit lands in British Columbia, the  Times concludes thus: "Considerable  interest was taken in the exhibit, and  among those who inspected the fruit  were Lady Aberdeen, Hon. J. H. Turner, Agent-General for British Columbia, and Captain Hon. Mr. Tallow,  Finance Minister oftho Province, who  brought the Government's exhidit  over with him."  _The_  .Boundary_Creck���Times-complains that coins of the Straits Settlements and Hong Kong are circulated  to some extent in Greenwood, and in  that district gonerally being accepted  by,merchants at their face value. The  Times asserts.that they are being sent"  "into the interior by some-sharpers at  the coast, who buy them at fifty-three  cents on the dollar of their face value  and palm them off on an unsuspecting  people at full value. Tiik Economist  has a somewhat diflerentjlheory and it  is this: The coast politicians who are  touring Mr. Boss' constituency may  be riddling the coins simply to make  an aggreeable impression on the electorate.  The Victoria Colonist prints the  following. It must not be .construed  as a reflection on "Big Bill " :  ���     HIIX'S IK TROUBLE.

It is uot known whether the 174 who  voted iu favor of the proposal were all  Conservatives, and if the S who voted  against it wore Liberals, but the disparity in the vote gives rise to that  suspicion, .,-In any event, the vote  shows how'the ratepayers of an enlightened city feel with regard to the  problein.of municipal ownership.  The committee appointed to select a  site for a new school in the Hume Addition and prepare estimates as to the  cost of the building, presented its report to au adjourned meeting held last  Monday evening. The committee reported tliat three sites had been under  consideration, but the most desirable  one comprised six lots on the corner of  Nelson avenue and Cottonwood street.  Plans for a modern school building  had been prepared by Architect Carrie,  Two"school~teachers"were ofTtbe"caf  just after tbe classes had been reformed  and they were talking interestingly to  themselves about things generally in  the.departments in which,-they were  engaged, and ' the number of children  in their classes. Opposite to them sat  an old and rather neat woman, who'  bad a large basket on the floor beside  her.  "How many children have you ?"  said oue of the teachers to the other.  "I have forty-seven."  Tlie old woman looked up with a  look of bewilderment rather than surprise. "How many children - have  you ?" asked the other teacher.  "I have slxtv-ilve."  A look of deeper surpriee came over  the face of the woman with the basket,  but she did not say anything until she  reached her destination. While getting out of thecar she turned her*" head  and said iu a loud voice :  "I do not know who you are or  where you come from, but I can say  you>area slick pair of liar*."  ��� The Calgary Eye Cpeiier, a brightly wiitten paper  which opened "many eyes in the re'centcampaigii in  the interests of good government, had a special feature  entitled: "Interviews-With Great Men:'. .One-published recently wirh Radcliffe was especially spicy.*- Of  course the interview ivfis.iinaginaty.

During  the past summer every evening young  couples strolled along that road, and  some of them have since been married,  which demonstrates that conditions  there are favorable for whispering tlie  same old story of love. Even these  cool-autumn_e veniiigs,-many���young  couples can be seen strolling along that  road, which induces the belief that  " lovers' lane"   has  lost  that Miss Winch, "being desirous of*  marrying thesaid Furuell," etc., wishes  the permission of "one of Their Lordships before'taking the step.   :"  "How do I know that he ls able to  support her?" asked the Chief Justice.  "Well," replied Mr. Townley, "I  have the affidavit of the mother granting the young lady permission to  marry."  "But how am I able to know that  she is capable of judging?" insisted the  court. "This young man may be a  tramp for all I know. Don't you know  what his business is, and whether he  is a fit and proper person to marry this  young girl ?"

'  Tim's does stern justice thwart the  best laid schemes of little Cupid.

The petition is  said to have been started by several.  friends   of  the murdered  man   who  think in view ofthe largely circumstan-  .      tial  nature of  the evidence  and the  ,   ..     n��n.e of lts youth of the  prisoner together with  well-deserved popularity.

But this  warning will not be heeded.  Ranch property in the vicinity of  Armstrong, B. C, has increased in  value400to 700 per cent, since 1896.  Near the town it has even done better.  For instance the property now occupied by Mr. Watson was offered for f18  an' acre in 1800���to-day Mr. Watson  can get $150 an acre and wiH not look  at it. Property adjoining the Schubert  farm was offered for years at $6 an  acre; to-day it cannot be bought for  $30.* " -;A ���'-'.''"  ���There is a statute which perhaps  very few are aware oi, that if a young  man or a young woman, not yet arrived at the age of 21 years, desires to  marry, he or she must secure the permission <>f the father, if he be living,  who is the nritnrnl'-guardian.v In "the  event of not 'uoiii-g able to get that consent, permission must be obtained  frop a Supreme Court Judge. An in:,  teresting case of this character came  before .Chief Justice Hunter at Vancouver Thursday morning.  Miss Regoletta Winch was born at  the capital in December, 1883, and  therefore lacks a month of being  twenty-one years of age, when her own  consent would be all that the law requires as permission  for her to marry  the present precarious condition of. his  health, that capital punishment Should  not be resorted to. A great many signatures have been affixed to tbe petition.  There are two foot racers in Nelson  each one of whom wants to give the  other a start any distance from three  to ten yards. It should not be difficult  to arrange a race under these conditions, but it is doubtful if an outsider  would like to put up much money on  the result. ���'  . Dan Hanlon has brought to the Slocan   Drill office a couple of potatoes,  tne circumstances of whose growth are  remarkable.

Six hills were gathered in  and they produced 75 pounds of spuds,  the two in question weighing upwards  of a pound apiece.    A stream running:  through tbe dump aided the growth.

While it must be confessed  tbat  the    Laurier    Government    could  have carried   the country by a substantial   majority   in    any    event,  there are gook   grounds   for. believing that the emissaries of .that Government resorted   to   questionable  methods.to bring about  the  result.  It was a case of remaining in power  at any price, and in many constituencies victory was gained at an appalling sacrifice of honor  and hon-  es'y.    Various causes are assigned  for the  eruption   in   Nova  Scotia  but the one most in evidence is the  barefaced manner in'which the electors were corrupted by  bribes  and  promises of pre'erment.    Of course,  the racial and religious cry  did its  work  in   Quebec.    But the battle  has been  fought  and  lost, and   it  now remains with Conservatives to  proceed at once with the  work  of  getting their "house iu order  fur the  contest four years hence.  : According to a report from Toronto, Hon. George E. Fos er took  the result in a philosophical mood.  " The result  from  our  standpoint  . is a mixed one,"* he said. "In  general the country has gone in favor of the Government.    The-in  ~" explicable defeat   of _ Mr.   Borden  ' and colleagues in Nova Scotia  is  not.pleasant reading for  Conservatives.    It is due in   my' opinion to  . over-confidence and inefficient   or-  .   ganizatioa, plus of course, the pow-  elfttl patronage and persistent worlc  on tbe part ef both  the Local and  Dominion Governments.    The loss  of Mr. Borden is-.a., great one. and  in my opinion  must  be  overcome  by, obtaining a seat  in .some favor-  ' able constituency.    The electors as  a whole bave faith in Mr. Borden,  and his own   party certainly   needs  him in   Parliament.    The west, haa  fallen a victim to Sifton ism "and its  peculiar methods.    It's-pretty hard  to     make     successful      headway  against vast   colonization   of  elements, practically  under the Government's   tutelage    and    looking  ~~ttpon tbe~G6vefhment7as"a~kind"of  foster-parent. Manitoba is a little  disappointing, but sends some good  representatives. Considering Ontario was deprived of six members  and handicapped in twelve constituencies by   the   gerrymander,    the  , , Conservative party came out strong.  As to the issues, the Government  will no doubt consider itself sustained by the people, and we may  look for wide open door for the J  next five years. Toronto shows up  splendidly. One thing that can be  said about her people is that; they  consistently stand by principles and  is less swayed by material and patronage considerations than any  constituency.in the Dominion. The  vote yesterday was good, but dees  not show the real Conservative  strength  of   Toronto. * The   Grits  .stole a march on the Conservatives  in':registration and organization���a  thing I hope will not be permitted  to happen aga:n."  The political campaign tliiough  which Canada has just passed was  interesting from more than one  point of view. For instance, it in-]  iroduced to the public several new  men, who will sooner or later take  a prominent part iii the affairs of the  nation, and their speeches lent interest to the campaign. Among  these was Captain A. TV Hunter, of  Toronto, a brother of Chief Justice  Hunter, of Victoria. Capt. Hunter went into the contest in West  Toronto fully realizing that his  .chances ol election were slim, but  be attracted large audiences by  qualities riot usually found in.a  candidate for parliamentary honors.  His last speech in the campaign  was particularly epigrammatic. He  said he knew that be was going  into a hard fight, but he was not  entering it with the innocence of  the corn-fed porker which walks up  the slaughter-house gang-plank.  He didn't want the sympathy of  the electorate. He wanted their  v6tes. West Toronto was what  was called a safe riding. The term  vvas not complimentary to the people who lived in it; and he wanted  to know whether they wanted a  representative who would be  weightyan council or one who" was  heavy in speech. Mi. Clarke, he  declared, bad been kicked out of  the riding bytbe^party managers.  There had been a triumvirate in  West Toronto like - that - we read  about in Roman history, and one  man bad .eaten up the other two,  and now was Caesar Augustus and  bad a safe seat. Tbe electors could  resent this by electing him. He  would make a good hammer, he  suggested, to avenge Mr. Clarke's  wrongs. At this point interruptions became so general and so loud  that Mr. Hunter lost patience. He  reminded the audience that the  meeting was his. and said that it  would be conducted according to  parliamentary rules. If anyone refused to submit he would call the  gentleman outside and enter into a  Russian peace, congress with   him.  Lowest Rates  Best Time  Toronto,  Montreal.

The Conservatives of '��� Kootenay  do uot appear to be dismayed in the  slightest by the overwhelming defeat of the party in ��� Canada. On  the contrary, they are; determined  to do all in their power ' to ensure  the election of Mr. Mackintosh.

Am  *N  PMfl*HaffltfBMi*��r*^^  Maurice^Barrymore, the actor, is  dying in a New York State sanitarium. It is feared that the end is  only a few days off. His vitality  has been marvellous, but is now at  its last ebb. His son, John Barrymore, the artist, is constantly with  -him.-T-he-o'iher son.-LioueVis now-  only convalescent from a severe nt-  tack of typhoid fever. The first intimation of his father's approaching death is kept from him. Ethel  Barrymore, the- actress, is in the  west, but she receives daily messages ofthe celebrated actor's criti:  cal condition.  The climax will come quickly.  Such is the nature of his disease  that he will die between the'ticks of  a clock. Of late he has refused all  food, and does not recognize his  nurse, mistaking him frequently for,  a callboy.  The actor who thrilled thousands  of playgoers by his art is true to his  instinct in these dying days. Before an imaginative audience, in a  miniature theatre of cards, his own  familiar voice is heard iu the madhouse mumbling the lines that formerly brought his admirers to their  feet in thunderous applause. .  Slowly but surely the darkness'is  closing in on the'famous actor. His  mind is a blank as to his surroundings. During all his waking hours  he is back in fancy amid the scenes  of his great successes. By the. side  of his bed is a pack of cards: Dawn  finds him astir, and, with his face  turned from the world that was, he'  rears up a theatre, of pasteboard  With infinite pains he constructs  the lobby, then tier after tier of  seats, the orchestra pit next, then  the proscenium boxes, and finally  the stage. Then Barry the peerless, his once matchless voice now  shattered   and broken, "his 'hand  some face gaunt and masked by a  gray beard, stiffens up behind the  stage that he has constructed and  for hours repeats the lines which  made him famous.  It was in Captain Swift that  Barrymore made one of his greatest  hits,-and-it-is-to- Mr.- Wolding, the  role .which he created in that famous play, that he now returns,  bringing his fellow-patients "crowding jibout his door, where, awe-  stricken and silent, they grovel and  listen, and as the climax 'of the  play is reached and making the-mo-  tions of putting a revolver to his  head, Barrymore, as Mr. Wolding,  tails dead, they burst into tumultuous applause.  Again, like a tired child, he  sleeps, and dawn once more finds  him building his playhouse, ..setting  the stage for the final scene in tbe  tragedy of his life.  Barry has developed outbursts of  uncontrollable auger during which  he attacks his attendants, and is  controlled with difficulty. These  intervals are declared by his physicians to be unfailing evidence of  the fast approaching end.  These periods are invariably followed by long spells of silence, during which he builds and rebuilds  his theatre, his lips moving all the  time as he repeats to himself fragments of his favorite plays, his fingers following across the miniature  stage the characters that are crowding each other through his clouded  brain. '        . ,       �� .  Jt may be a week, but the stage  is "being set. Over there Billy  Florence, Scanlan, Emmet, Bartley  Campbell, Mackaye and Charlie  Hoyt are beckoning ; the eallboy is  V ^   *  on the stair, ^ti- the armchair, his  back to the window, Barry is waiting.        * '   *'ZA 7     A.
