He  had a number of interesting  experiences, such as fell to the lot of .many  police officers who served in the sixties.  during his career. He held it prominent  role in the so-called war on the Skeena  of 1888, when'H.  M. S. Caroline took  up C Battery and local  soldiery to the  Skeena to put down "an Indian rising."  It was in June of that year, pays the  Victoria Colonist, that the trouble  started. Kitwancool Jim, Asub-chiel  of one of the Skeena. river tribes, had  killed the '��� hamatsu" or Indian witchdoctor, who was charged with having  poisoned the chiefs children, and Kit-  jyancqol Jim fled to Kitmangar, a village further (uj) the river.

No other killings had occurred and the Indians seemed to be  in a state of passive defiance when the  troops arrived.    The late Capt. Fltz-  stubbs was stipendary magistrate, and  with Supt.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  John Houston, the Houstonitc candidate's now engaged in the rather  Interesting occupation of reading Con-  servativeS'out cf the party with which  they have been " affiliated" from tlieir  youth up. Some months ago, Charles  Wilson*, K. C, was a "wobbler," and  was shut out from the sublime presence of that "lifelong Conservative,"  John Houston; next, Premier McBride was a usurper and not entitled  to recognition at the hands of his  party; then Attorney-General McPhillips was held up to ridieule. Now  It-is Mr. Cotton's turn, who is ordered  to go 'way back and sit down. Of  course in the reading out process, John  Houston Ms' not overlooked Thk  Economic..'"'For years the "lifelong  Conservative" frothed, and fumed at  this paper because it candidly confessed to a strong leaning toward* the  Conservative party; it was. openly  charged that this paper's politics was  in a great measure influenced by the  fluctuations of an ever-sensitive money  market; now we are informed by the  aame authority that Tub Economist  is not a Conservative paper at all���  that there is only one " lifelong Conservative" '.paper in the province,  ���whichis the Nelson Tribuno, and ^iily  one champion of the Conservative  cause, "who is John Houston. Tiik  "Economist has no hesitation in admitting that John Plouston has been  more or less a "lifelong Conservative"  for a week past, and that Tribune lias  displayed Conservative symptoms for  the same space of time. Tti fact this  paper has the best reasons for believing that such a change has resiliy taken  place, it being generally reported that  the government haa eased the itching  palm ofthe great Nelson patriot by a  timely recognition in the way of a  printing contract for half a score or  more voters' lists at a remuneration  that completely obscures tlie possibilities of the other "Lucky Jack." If  this would  not win John Houston's  ^leinporaryjievotion and admiration for  the party represent?d by the donors, it  is quite certain that nothing in thtr  >vay of policy could accomptish llic tit-  sired result. But what pari j will the  patriot join when he gels his good  money for the voters' li.-its ? The  question opens up a vast r.mj;e of political possibilities, and must be left to  romantic metaphysicians of the sWliool  to which belonged-jhe author of "Dr.  Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." No doubt  many will think tbe government lias  been uiuneccssarily extravagjint in tlie  ���distribution of. its favors. They will  say: Why not have experimented  with a half-inch udvt-rlUt'i.ieiit or  xonie trifling thing of that sorl ? Tliat  might have accomplished equally as  satisfactory results���for .some ttall-JVtl  "patriots''are growing inij;hty clieop  Jn their declining j��irs.  The friends of Hon. R. F. Green in  Kaslo riding say the result of the content is a foregone conclusion.  ��� While this paper does not hold Alfred Parr in the highest reverence, and  hopes to chronicle biadefeat when the  battle of the ballots is over.it baa no  hesitation in saying that the gentleman trimmed the editor of theTribune,  at Ymir the other evening, in a manner that was as effective as it was well  deserved. Mr. Parr's arraignment of  John Houston was severe, even  when it is considered tbat the latter is  not "a gentleman with a spotless reputation." And John Houston is equally as incapable of replying to Alfred  Parr as he was to S. S. Taylor, when  the Liberal candidate flagellated the  the Hotistouitc candidate with a whip  of scorpions on the occasion of a recent  political meeting.  . Tiik Economist has been '���honored"  by a notice in the Nel*on Evening  Tribune, which charges thnt Tiik  EcoxosrrsT is supporting tliecandidature of Mr. S. S. Taylor, (lie local, Lib--  eial candidate. This* is a remarkable  deviation from the truth even fur the  Tribune. The Ecoxoarrsv hits consistently opposed JjibcralUin u��;d advocated Conservative principle-; since  before the editor of the Tribum. made  his second to last side-step from one  party to tbe other. It i�� quite true  that Tiik Economist is. tuu devoting  any of its space to persona] abuse of  Mr. Taylor, neither however has it at  any time abused Premier McBride, nor  called its Conservative friends at the  coast a party of hogs. These are  branches of "practical  ix-litics)"* that  A recent visitor to Nelson when told  of the project of holding an agricultural  and horticultural exhibition here refused to hike it seriously and continued to think that his friends were trying to " jolly" liim. It is conceivable  that many Ilritish Columbians are still  ignorant of the potentialities of this  district in this respect, and it must be  admitted that a traveller passing  through the city is unlikely to think  of orchards and fields and gardens  while bis view is obstructed by walls  of massive rock. This Is all the more  reason why Nelson people should unite  and work zealously to make their lirst  Fall Fair a success. Nelson owes Its  prestige chiefly to its position in the  centre of a mining district nnd its importance as a railway and steamer headquarters. Butitwillbe well to demonstrate to our neighbors lhat we have  other resources, that Kootenay is not  all rock, and that our valleys are as fertile and as valuable as any land in tbe  province. Nelson will be much better  appreciated as a desirable residential  city if it can be shown that we can  raise in our neighborhood enough to  supply all pur own wants and those of  our less fortunate neighbors in fruit  and vegetables.  William Hunter, the Conservative  candidate for Slocan, is gettinghis political fences in good shape, and will win  out on Octobet 3lsC.  F. J. Deane has returned from Kamloops. He believes the contest will be  close in that constituency, but Is not  as one without hope.  It now looks as ifCharles Mackintosh  would receive the Conservative nomination for Rossland. The Liberal candidate will be J. A. Macdonald.  James M. Kell'e, of Revelstoke, haa  nominated himself for tlie Legislature  and accepted the enderuutiou of the  Libc ai association afterwards. For  years Mr. Kellie was regarded as the  picturesque feature of the Provincial  Legislature, but was defeated in the  gcneraivlootlolrof laOOr-^-Aftcr^-his defeat his position as jester of the Legislature was never successfully tilled, although one umpiring "practical politician" of the Kootenay attempted the  Uisk.

Jim Corbett was also anxious  tomeet Jim JeiFries and we all know  what happened.  William Ross, who was recently nominated for theFernle district, is a Conservative of the old school, and can be  depended upon to stand by tbe party  through thick and thiu. We hope Mr.  Ross will be-elected.  The Ottawa Citizen thinks that because the whole story of the colonial  conference has not been given to the  public is not the fault of Colonial  Secretary Chamberlain. He asked the  consent of the Canadian government  for tbe publication and Sir Wilfred declined to permit it.   Why?  In .It. Cotton, nominated . for the  Richmond constituency, the Conservative party has a strong candidate. Iti  tlie event of the defeat of a minister  Mr. Cotton would in all probability be  taken intotlie Cabinet, and perhaps be  may be given the vacant portfolio before election day, which would be a  ���wise move on the part of the government.  A St. Louis judge discharged a man,  who drew a revolver on a mo tor man  and compelled him to stop the car anil  let him spend his nickel. The court explained that he believed tho street cars  were supposed to.be ran for the trans-,  Ttortut-km of-.-Uae-paUic and that said  pnblie bad some rights in the matter.  This doctrine, though contrary to ordinary usage, will be popular. .

Extract, from The NKr-soNf EtoifOMrsr,   AuffUKt  15th.  Other letters were written to Mr.  Starkey, but brought forth no response, so last Monday the following  requisition was forwarded to the president of the association :  Fred Starkey, Esq., President Liberal-  Conservative . Association, Nelson,  li. C.:  DBA.R Sir,���You have been repeatedly asked to call a meeting of the  Liberal Association of the city, but  have failed to do so. No-meeting has  been held for months, though ft general election is at hand. We now request you to call a general meeting of  the Liberal-Conservative Association  for Wednesday evening in the board of  trade rooms, surh 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.

Thia was accompanied by tbe following personal letter from Mr. Macdonald:  Fred  Starkey, President Liberal-Conservative Association, City:  Deak Sir,���lam anxious to make  one last effort towards harmony before  it is too late. I enclose a request  signed by a few of tbe many who desire a meeting". Tbe decision and responsibility rest witlt you. If you decide to call tbe meeting, I would suggest notice being inserted in the morning paper. Trusting tbat you will do  so, "VV. A. Macdonald.  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 tbat the president had  ever received the letter, was tbe more  prolific use Of foul language Dy 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 caine together arid 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 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 atthe outrageous  conduct of President Starkey. The  chair was occupied by Dr. Stoddart  and Mr. C. I. Archibald acted as sec-  recta ry.  It was moved by "W. A. Macdonald,  seconded by Geo. Steed, and carried  unanimously :  Whereas Mr. Fred Starkey, as president of the LiberaL-Cotiservative 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 Conservatiyesfor a public  meeting of the association T'  Therefore this publift meeting of Conservatives approves of the calling of  this meeting so that the members of the  party as a -whole may have an opportunity of being heard, and further this  meeting condemns the course pursued  by the president of the association and  declares bis conduct betokens lack of  fairness and true appreciation-of his  position and tin apparent desire to act  solely in the interest of a portion only  ofthe party.
