VOLUME  VII.  NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 19C3.  NUMBER 7  S.TohnMacdona.a.Wi.POLITICALGOSSIP  Although liia^mrty ciime back in triumph In 187S, Sir John Macdonald sustained a personul humiliation in his  own defeatat Kl ngston���the first defeat  lie had suiFered since entering Parliament in l(Mat, He was, however, elected  in two other constituences, Marquette,  "Man., and Victoria, B. (X, aud decided  to sit for the latter. A few of Sir John's  good hits in Parliament in 1875) and  ���subsequent sessions are now to he given.  Mr. Tilley (Sir Leonard), speaking on  the subject of prohibition, said he was  delighted to find tbat Mr. Angliu was  a convert to the nrohibition of opium  for use among the Chinese.  " But" said Sir John, " it all ends in  smoke, you see.'''  Sir John " who would not give a toe  for $10,000." i  Mr. Plumb, one day talking about  the tariff, said he was'hound to deal  with this subject; unless he he chose to  be "a fly on wheel," like those Liberals  who had lately been brushed off.  " So much the better for the public  weal," replied Sir John.  In the course of the debates by whieh  he introduced tbe National Policy, Sir  John remarked tbat thoso wlio cared  to be protected at all, wanted all they  could get. They were like tbe squaw  who said of whiskey, that " a little too  much was just enough,"  Public men wlio are acquainted with  tlie clamoroiiiiiuss of manufacturers  seeking government protection will appreciate tbe aptness of this comparison.  Mr. Mackenzie was explaining some  points about compensation that had  been given to members of the mounted  police for loss of limbs, when Sir John  said he was told that one of tlie claims  was made for a man who lost his toe,  and he asked $10,000 for it.  "There are very few men," observed  One day Sir John, wishing to close  oft' an inconvenient discussion which  had been brought up by Mr. Mackenzie,  said, "Art thou he that troubleth Is-  real V" Sir John did not remember that  be was quoting the words of Ahab the  wicked king, but Mr. Mackenzie was  more deeply read in biblical literature,  and instantly retorted in the words of  Elijah, " I have not troubled Israel, but  thoii jfn'd thy father's house, in that ye  have forsaken the commanandraents of  the Lerd and have followed Baalam."  Mr.. McLennan, a member of the Opposition, said he would take the liberty  to.say to lifs friends on the Treasury  benches that they might as an experiment try tbe good efFeet of saving a  little money. " Yes," agreed Sir John,  " just for the novelty ofthe thing."  N  ews bf  the  M  mes  ,; .Reports from various mining eatnps  are of the most encouraging character.  Following the recent discoveries in the  Lardeau   coinea   word of   important  strikes in other camps.     It has been  reported this week that a strike of considerable importance has been made iu  the east drift on the 400-foot level at  ihe Ymir mine.    The extent of the  strike ia not yet known, but sufiicieut  rich ore has been exposed  to. warrant  , the belief that a. new interest will be  a awakened in mining- in Ymir in the  near future.     Forty-nine   Creek has  ; been contributing considerable to the  7 one great subject of discussion the past  'week.  Many, of the best posted mining  . men believe that no richer territory is  : to be found in the interior than around  ' this camp.    There is a vast amou nt of  oyvork going on there all the time, although not much is said about ic.    Altogether the mining situation is most  gratifying.  Jacob Dover, who has charge of the  mineral exhibit for the forthcoming  fair, is putting forth every effort to  make the display creditable to tlie province. He has already interviewed  many of the lending mine-owners, who  have promised to contribute mineral  tipecimens. Mr. Dover hits aUo succeeded in getting for the show the 400-  pound piece of ore which was recently  taken from Poplar Creek.  The gold sent down by the Cariboo  Consolidated Company last week was  cf the value of about $48,000. B'ifty.

BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  Three thousand dollars, one-tenth of  the purchase money, has been paid to  vendors, on the Star group on the West  Bide of Morning mountain.  SLOCAN MINING NOTES.  Foin every quarter of the province  reports come that the politicians are  clearing their decks for action. The  contest will be It bitter one in many  .respects, and while party tradition?  will be kept well to the front, there is  little doubt but that men will play a  groat part in the general result. In this  respect it may be mentioned thatso fat-  neither side seems to be fulfilling the  demands of party government, there  being an evident inclination on the  part of the strongest men on both sides  to hold aloof. As a result the chronic  office-seekers are enabled to gratify  their lust for notoriety. However,  there are several districts in which  nominations have not yet been made,  and it may be that the best men are  being held in reserve.  According fo the GolderiStar, J. A.  Harvey, of Fort Steele, will receive the  Conservative nomination for that district and Wells will be the Liberal candidate. " '  >..-,.  jj JAt Esquimalt last Saturday a meeting/or the purpose of selecting a Liberal  candidate was held, with ten delegates  present, representing the different districts in the riding. Two cadnidates  were proposed, Mr. George Powell and  Mr. John Jardine.     Mr. Jardine re  ceived six voles and Mr. Powell four,  Mr; Jardine being consequently declared nominated as tlie Liberal candidate, which is another victory for  Mr. Joseph Martin.  The Ashcroft Journal is informed  that Mr. Prentice has advised his  friends that he cannot be a candidate,  giving as his reason that his busine.-s  demands his personal attention.  A. W. Smith of Lillooet, has given  his official "no" to invitations to run  and will quit politics.  John Retallack was in the city this  week and was closetbd for a couple of  hours with John Houston, studying  "practical politics" Mr. Retallack  should change his teacher.

A, Cromwell, of PortStauley,  Out., has in his possession a Bible  Avhieh is It 12 -years old, a fact which in  itself is enough to make the book remarkable, but the history of the-volume is still more remarkable. The  Bible was owned by Oliver Cromwell,  the Protector, and is iu all likelihood  the one read by him to his soldiers during the'English civil wars of the seventeenth century. The present owner is  a descendant of the great Oliver. For  generations the old Bible has been  treasured in the family as an heirloom.  There is a tradition in the Cromwell  family that tlie Bible was owned by  Oliver's father before it passed into the  hands of the Protector.  The old Bible was printed in 1591,  and presents all the characteristics of  tbe sixteenth century books. It is a  IGmo volume, bound in leather, and is  nearly three inches thick.  Evidently the" bookbinders of that  day made tlieir books with very weak  backs, for that portion of the old  Bible is so doubled and bent that the  back edges of the cover touch each  other, thus throwing the front of the  pages in the middle of the volume,  halfanineh out beyond the the cover's  edge.' The lining of the cover is coarse  canvas. Oliver's thumbs and the  thumbs of Cromwell's following have  left eloquent marks ou the ��ld volume.  "Notwithstanding the great age of the  Bible it has nearly as many supposed^a'^_i^|  modem improvements as the latestlv^'  Oxford. The edges of the pages are^^i'f^l  bordered with columns of referencedtt^B^I  notesin the style current to-day.

Give no Credence  to Gampaign Stories  ,sV-  Tt is-quite evident that one ofthe blessings of party lines lias not heen to make men and newspapers more truthful in the matter of discussing the real political .situation. In nearly every con-  stiteney both sides are claiming a party victory and furnishing the strongest kind of evidence in support of their contention! It is rather difficult to understand what object some men have in deliberately  misrepresenting the real condition of affairs, especially when it is generally known that the statements are absolutely false. Take, for instance, the situation in Nelson. The Tribune and its editor  . persist in the contention that the Conservative party in this city is united, while everyone knows  that the party here, through the machinations of Starkey and others, has. bseu completely rent  assuuder, and tbat there is no possiule chance ofthe Houstonite candidate polling half of tlie Conservative vote.    Probably the object in this case is to create a false impression   ou  tbe  outside.    If the  p .  Tribune is no more reliable in its e-eneral news features than it is in its discussion  Laughton and Harry Hodder, sons  of W.'-T. Hodder, Kaslo, were drowned  at that place last evening. Tbe elder  boy lost his life in trying to rescue his  brother. The boys were great favorites  and Mr. and Mrs. Hoilder will have  tlie sympathy of a large circle of friends  in their bereavement.  The Liberals in Dewdney have so far  not got any candidate in the Held to  oppose Premier McBride. Mr. T. V.  Puterson of the C. P. Lumber Company, was approached oil the subject,  but declined the nomination. Mr. J.C.  Brown of New Westminster has beeu  mentioned as a possiblc'candidate, as  has Mr. Oscar Manzer of Mission.  Walter J. Tbickc, formerly deputy  registrar of the Supreme court at Vancouver passed away last Monday.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  Lord Salisbury's death, more than  nuy other recent event, marks a transition from old to new. Possibly never  again, certainly not for years, will the  British Empire be governed so absolutely by one man as it was for many  eventful years by tbe great Conservative statesman. Jiy common consent  he was master of Englaud as no other  minister of the century had been since  the death of the younger Pitt in its  first decade. And this during a period  of steady democratic development and  in spite of the fact that he not only  never tried to acquire the faculty of  appealing to the public in moments of  excitement, but consistently avoided  personal contact .with the electorate  and rested his cause always on its own  merits ; Britoii3 were never asked to  support Lord Salisbury, but to approve  or condemn tbe principles and policies  he advocated or denounced.  Even a sketch of his great career  would be too long at present. Born"in  1830, he received the usual education of  * a  an English boy. His young manhood  was eventful and chccqucrcd; he  speutsometimein theminingcanipsof  Australia as a correspondent for a London journal. He first attracted notice  aa a caustic writer for the Saturday  Ueview at the time when Professor  Goldwin Smith was also a contributor.  Later as a young member of the House  of Commons, as Lord Robert Cecil, he  was noted for the piquancy and point  of his speeches and was a most formidable opponent in debate. lie was a  member of D'Israeli's first cabinet,  but resigned because be disapproved of  the famous Franchise Bill of 18G8  framed, as it? author frankly admitted,  to "dish the Whigs."  He was a member of D'Jsniel's second administration from '74 to '80, and  with him and Lord Derby represented  Great  Britain at   the historic Berlin  Conference of'78.  On the death of BeaconslieM, Lor.l  -Salisbury-^bceurne^thci^lc.i<lei7^of_the  then disorganized Conservative parly,  nnd when the Liberal government of  Mr. Gladstone collapsed under the burden ofthe first Home Utile Bill, Salisbury,   although  unknown except  by  name to the great  mass of J-'nylis*!-  inen, became prime minister in 1SS0.  His following was largely composed of  Liberal Unionists,   who had seceded  from   Mr.   Gladstone on    thu   Homo  Hule question, so the ye.'irj  of bis Hr=t  ministry were wisely spent  iu trying,  to regain what Britain h:ul  lost abroad  and in quietly developing: sln-n��th at  liomc.  In IS02 tho "swing of the pendulum" restored Mr. Gladstone to power  for three years, when the vexed Irish  question again ruined tho Liberals. In  'Do the now homogeneous Unioni.-?!  -party returned to power with a ni.-iji-r-  5|y unknown in English politirs l"..r  nearly a hundred years, l"r<'in "0.1 tn  his retirement, about two years ng*>,  Lord Salisbury was virlu.il ruler ol  Britain.  It was well known Unit in tl.e Cabinet, even in the inner ehi-io of stall's-  men, the leader's authority was unquestioned.  Age, illness and loneliness since his  wife's death, had made him long forest and seclusion some \ears Uf'lithe end, but he held the liclin iinli;  the end of the South African In tilde  was in sight.  As a statesman ic will lio remembered best as the foreign si civlary, ever  watchful, resolute and calni. As a  parliamentarian, he will live aa the  author of many a pregnant sentence,  .sometimes bitter and stinging in his  younger days,   but   ever   thoughtful,  sobering and wise. Asa student and  patron of science and learning his fame  is secure.  But his place in the roll of honor of  great Englishmen does not depend'  solely upon his achievements as scientist, scholar, debater, diplomat or  statesman ; his name will stand as that  of a great force iu the a flairs of the  world, forceful without apparent effort,  trusted absolutely at home because of  bis silent constancy to principle,  abroad because he never deceived hy  open falsehood or veiled equivocation.  A long career of party strife often embittered by personal rancor never provoked attack on others by hiin, nor on  him by an>one. From tbe arena of  lierce struggling he retired to his quiet  Hatfield with the sincere respect and  veneration of every Englishman.  however signal to a victory which,  should place the Conservative party of  the province in danger of having its  policy determined or in any way influenced by men whose only motive is  personal power and profit.  The exhibition to be held September  25th and 2(lth under the auspices of the  Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association will be a success if our citizens make up their minds to doall they  can in that direction. Tho management of the exhibition will be principally in the hands of Mr. E. .1, An-  nable, who possesses the requisite qualifications to carry out an undertaking  of this character successfully, and it  only remains with the citizens to second Mr. Annable's efforts.

If there be a third possible outcome  we should be pleased to have it suggested.  In either ease what hope would remain of stable or efficient administration. Joseph is a hard leader for any  one else to follow; he is an impossible  follower for any one else to lead. If  anyone doubts the last statement'we  beg to oflcr as references Mr. Greenway,  Sir Wilfred Laurier, Mr. Semlin, Mr.  Dunsmuir and Col. Prior.  Joseph holds the rcord in Canada for  wrecking parties by supporting them.  Happily there is little danger of any  such result; Mr. Martin may be gazetted at once as one of the leaders of  the nest opposition.

We now request you to call ft general- meeting of  the  Liberal-Conservative   Association  for Wednesday evening in the board of  trade rooms, su��h  meeting being for  the purpose of considering sill .niattei-s  pertaining to the welfare of the party  and to endeavor to so  unite the party  as to ensure the election of a Conservative candidate. ��}'���  (Signed)      W.

I enclose a request  signed by ft 1e\fr of the many who de-  si re 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 pa per.   Trusting that you will do  BO, W. A.   MaCI)0NAIj1>v  ': This.'requisition was not treated  wiih even the scant courtesy of a reply, which, everything considered, is  perhaps not to be marvelled at. The  only sign Riven that the president had  ever received the letter, was the more  prolific use of foul language by. tlie  '���gang" on tho 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* v-hich was held in the board of  trade 100ms Wednesday oveni ng. The  Houston itea refused to attend that  meeting, although one or two of their  number, it is .said, as is tlieir 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 toleave  no doubt of the widespread feeling of  resentment which prevails amongst  Nelson Conservatives at the outrageous  conduct of President Starkey. The  chair was occupied by Dr. B tod dart  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-Conservative Association, haa 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 hiin to he called  for that purpose, and has also failed to  comply with or even had the courtesy  to reply to a request signed by acknowledged Conservatiyes for a public  meeting of the association :  Therefore this public meeting of Conservatives approves of the calling of  this meeting so that the members of the  party as a whole may have an oppor-  tunity of being heard, and further this  meeting condemns 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 aeb  solely in the interest of a portion only  ofthe party.

Over the Wallace-Miller Co,, Kelson  JOB    -PRINTING     ;AT  THE   ECONOMIST   OFFICE mpmoma  THE ttELSON ECONOMIST  The Rossland papers are going to a  great deal  of trouble  to prove they  have a cheap class of men over there.  In the first place, the Rossland carnival  committee had not enough enterprise to  import ft first-class lacrosse team, and  mow   tbey    whine    because    Nelson  would not give the whole show for  nothing.    Rossland would never support a good lacrosse  team of its own  and now it pretends to be indignant at  Nelson players/accusing them of grafting and everything that is moan. In the  next place, what little success attended  the Rossland carnival was directly attributable to the Nelson lacrosse players, the firemen and visitors who* went  over to Rossland, and from what can  be learned, the hospitality shown the  "visitors, was not of the kind usually  extended by the townsand cities of the  jnterior.!    The game advertised for the  afirst day should have taken place.   Its  postponrhent was merely a scheme to  keep strangers a day longer in Rossland.  A correspondent, who seems to be a  little curious about many matters,  ���wants to know on what authority  Secretary Starkey of the celebration  committee, engaged a paid assistant  , secretary.. The correspondent, referred  to says he attended all the meetings of  the general committee and lie cannot  remember of a suggestion of this character being made. This paper cannot  answer the question ; but it might say  that the wild, untamed secretary usually does a thing and asks permission  afterwards. _ The salary of $6-3 was outrageous and cut of all-proportion to the  services rendered. It is the first time  an the history of celebrations in Nelson, so far as this paper is aware, that  a, secretary has employed "an assistant  at a princely salary. The correspondent asks other questions, which had  better be directed to the general committee, but many will agree with him  in tbe opinion that Secretary Star-  iey's impudent reference to " the exceptional success of this year's celebration" is a sublime exhibition of nerve ;  also that the money credited to "ball  games" should have been credited to  ihe lacrosse matches.

I have heard .*_��_-  say, that after his boolco of the Circulation of the Blood came-out, tliat he fell  mightily in his practize, and that 'twas  beleeved by the vulgar that ho was  crack-brained; and all the physitians  wore against his opinion, and anvyed  him; many wrote against him. "With  much adoe at last, in about 20 or 80  yeares time, it was received in all the  Universities in the world; and, as Mr.  tlobbes sayes in his book 'De Corporb,'  be is the only man, perhaps, that ever  lived to see his owne doofcriita eetofrlish-  ed in his lifetime.  "He was much and Often, twribled  with tho gowte, and hia noj vi cure  was thus; he would then sitt with hia  legges bare, if it -were frost, on the leads  of Cockaine house, putt them into a  payle of water, till he was almost dead  with cold, and betake himselfe to hia  stove, and so 'twas gonue. He was hott-  headed, and his thoughts working  would many times keepe hiin from  slccpinge; he told me that then his way  was to rise out of his bed and walke  abont his chamber in his 6liirt till he  was pretty coole, i. c till he began to  have a horror, and then returne to bed,  and sleepe very comfortably."���Aubrey's "Lives."

The sleepy village of Biddeuden, not  far from Tcnterden, celebrates yearly  the memory of the two maids of that  aucicut hamlet who were tho original  precursors of tho Siamoso twins..

[Adopted at Revelstoke,September 18th, 1902.1  1. Tliat this convent Ion reaffirms the policy  of the parly iu mutters of inovinciul roads  and trails; the ownership nnd control of railways and the development oi the agricultural  resources of Hie province as laid down in the  platform adopted in October, 1S99, which isas  follows:  "To aeti-vcly aid in the construction of  trails throughout tlu: undeveloped portions  of the province and if ie building of provincial  trunic roads of public necessity.  "To adopt the principles of government  ownership of uiil ways in so far as the circumstances of the province will admit, and tie  adoption ofthe principle that no bonus should  be granted to any railway company which  does not give llic government of the' province control of rsites over lines bonused, together with the option of purchase.  " To actively as.-lst by slate aid in the development of the agricultural resources of the  province.  '2. That in the meantime and until the'rail-  way policy above, set forth can be accomplished, a general railway act be passed, giving freedom to construct railways under certain approved regulations, unalogous to the  system that Iuir resulted iu sueh extensive  railway construction in the United States,  with so much ad vanUige Jto trade and commerce  3. That to encourage the mining industry,  the taxation of met.il liferous mines should be  on the basis of a percentage on the net pro  tits.  4. That, the government ownership of telephone systems should bcbroii-alitabout as a  tirst step In the acquisition ofpublUi utilities.  5. That a portion uf every coal area hereafter  tobe disposed of should be reserved from sale  or lease, so that state owned mines may be  easily accessible, il llicir operation becomes  necessary or advisable.  ti. That in tlie pulp land leases provision  should be made foi reforesting and that steps  should be taken for lhe general preservation  of torcsls by guarding against, the wasteful  destruction of timber.  7. That the legislature and government o!  I he province should persevere, in the cltbrt to  secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.  8. That the matter ol"better terms in tlie way  ol subsidy and nporopriations for the province should should be vigorously pressed upon the Dominion government.  fl. That the silver-lead industries of the province be foslcred and enconragi d by the imposition of increnst d customs duties on lead  and lead products imported into Canada, and  that the Conservative members of the  Dominion House be urged to support any  motion  ntrodueed for such a purpose.  IU. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in gnat loss and injury both  to the parties directly concerned and to the  public,legislation should be passed to provide  means for an inn icable adjust ment ofsuch d is-  putes between employers and employees.  11. That it is advisable to foster the manufacture of the raw products of the province  within the province ns far us practicable by  means of taxation on the said raw products,  subject to rotate of tlie same In whole or part  when manufactured in British' Columbia.  p��e_ For Corh.  \mo_ig tho many articles nude from  cork -wastes i.s tho familiar cork (jri^ fru  biuyelo handles.
