Mr. Watson(on the demoralizing effects of the new franchise bill as it op-  crated in Manitoba)���"The spectacle  presented atthe polling place was disgraceful.   Indians walked   up  to the  polls, and ou being asked their names  did not know. They did not know  what name was put on the voters' list.

Every train and boat brings in men  who are attracted hither by the reports  from Poplar Creek and othor points:  While in individual cases there may  have heen some exaggaration as to the  va*ue of the, mineral, enough is now  known to justify the conclusion that  the Lardeau is one of the richest districts yet discovered on this continent.

A_  The ore sheds at the Ottawa are to  be boaTded iii and roofed.  The Ivanhoe is increasing its force  at the mine and mill, employing 65  men.  Last week Erne3t Harrop, one of  the owners of the Alpine group at the  iiead of Lemon creek had a little over  a ton of ore from that property treated  at Kelson smelter. It returned ��25 a  . ton in gold. The Alpine is a free milling proposition.  the property is in splendid shape for,  keeping up this record or beating it,  for a long time to come'.  Notwithstanding the close down at  the Granby smelter, io permit of coupling up the two new furnaces, shipments weie not stopped entirely from  the company's mines here. A train of  20 cars has been sent out every other  day, or about 300 tot.s duily.  Mannager Plewraan, of the Winnipeg, says he expects to begin shipments  on a small scale in the course of ten  days, and that be has 200 tons now-  broken down. Tho ore will go to ihe  .Sunset,smeUer^atJBoupdary^^ljB5JHie=  lumber for the new compressor house  is expected to arrive daily, and the  new machinery should be iu working  order in the coujso of three or four  weeks. The annual general meeting  of the Winnipeg will be held Tuesday,  October 6th, at the mine, when some'  local men who have lately token an interest will probably be represented on  the board. The force of seven men  will gradually be increased.  rovincial  This has been an eventful week in  political circles. On Sunday it was announced that tho government had decided to change the date of the election  from October 31 .to October 3. Of  course this did not fail to give rise to  considerable comment. In many parts  of the province, it was openly charged  tliat the real reason for tlie change was  the desire of the McBride Government  to take an unfair advantage of the  Liberals. The answer to this argument  was su pplied by a paper of the Liberal  faith, when it said that If the Liberals  are not ready for the contest their managers are at fault and open to criticism,  but if they are prepared they should  not grumble at- going to the polls as  early as possible. Generally speaking,  the change in the date to a period less  remote meets with popular favor.  The change iu the election date has  naturally aroused the coast politicians  to immediate action. The Liberal executive at Vancouver has selected  Joseph Martin, Mayor Neelands and  T. S. Baxter, and will decide on the  other two at once. The Conservatives  will probably nominate Capt. Tatlow,  Chas. Wilson, James Garden, W. J.  Bowser and Robert Todd. This is regarded as an exceedingly strong ticket.  At Victoria the Liberals seem to be  dead, although it is hinted that they  will be very much alive on election  day. No names are yet given out as to  possible or probable candidates. The  Conservative candidates are likely to be  Hon. A. E. McPhillips, Harry Helmcken, ex-Mayor Hay ward aud a man to  be chosen from the labor men. The  Young Men's Conservative Club was  organized Thursday evening for the  purpose of taking an active part in the  Victoria campaign.  The celebration of Labor Day at Vancouver gave rise to an Incident that  may have a considerable bearing on the  future of labor politics in British Columbia. Ralph Smith, M. P., was one  of the invited speakers, but his address  was so interrupted by the Socialist element that he was compelled to sit  down. After repeated attempts at  getting a hearing, he withdrew from  the hall in which the speech-making  was taking, place and was followed by  half the audience, who evidently sympathised -with Mr. Smith. This is  taken to mean that Mr. Smith's boom  for the Liberal leadership has collapsed.  The President of the Trail Conservative Association writes this paper that  the reports being circulated iu the Rossland Miner to thc*efFect that the Con  servatives of Trail will not support  Harry Wright, is erroneous, aud that  the party will vote for the candidate to a  man.   This is per fectly satisfactory.  The Nelson Tribune is supporting  "Bill" McLean, the Liberal candidate  for Similkameen district.  Mr. Houston bad a "grand rally" of  his supporters at his committee rooms  last Saturday evening. It wasa frost,  only about a dozen being present. Mr.  Taylor holds a "rally" to-night, and it  remains to he seen if he can draw a  bigger house.  Premier McBride is expected to reach  Nelson during the the latter end of next  week. He will speak at several  places in the i nterior.  Arthur S. Goodeve has been nominated by the Rossland Conservatives,  and iu all probability will be elected.  Mr.Goodeve is a man of splendid ability  and must be figured on in future Cabinet changes.  At the Houston committee rooms  this evening, speeches will be delivered  by Mayor Rose, William Irvine, Harry  Wright, A. Thomas and John Houston.  +����������������������*��� ��*��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ������������������������������f  ��� . -     7 -     - .    > ���*��� - * '  f  Hidden Wealth of  the Kootenays  Everything points to an era of unprecedented prosperity for the Kootenays.

From what he could learn the event will attract a large number of  visitors from that section, and many have expressed a determination to make entries for the exhibition. From other portions ofthe province similar reports reach the management. There is'no reason why tbe exhibition should not be a grand success. We have everything here necessary to the  success of such an undertaking, and visitors can depend upon it tbat the bungling which was characteristic of the Dominion Day celebration will not mar the pleasure of this eve.it. Mr. Amiable knows  how to manage an affair of this kind, an.l will devote more attention to business than thro.ving bouquets at himself. Of course a great deal remains with the citizens.

The  purpose of the corporation, it is said, is  to build a line of railway extending  from Port Nelson, Hudson Bay, in a  southerly direction crossing the line of  the Canadian Pacific near Winnipeg,  thence through the Dakota^, Nebraska,  Kansas, Oklahama andi Indian :Terri-  itory to Galveston, through Mexico to  the Isthmus of Panama, through Colorado, through Columbia to Ecuador  and finally Peru to" Buneos Ayres.  Dawson Charley, an Indian well  known throughout the Yukon as having been the original discoverer of the  riches of the Eldorada and other creeks  in the vicinity of Dawson, is visiting  Victoria. Charley, together with Tag-  ish Jim and others, recently made an  expedition to the Alsek river strike,  and are claimed by some to have been  thelocators-of the richest.claims there.

Tbe only paragraph tbat does not  damn itself by barefaced falsehood or  silly verbiage, is one advocating Civil  Service Reform ; It happens to be a  plank in Conservative, Liberal and  Labor platforms, and 'the Liberals  have not even the merit of having  sa id it first. -  EDITORIAL  COMMENT.  , Copies of the Liberal provincial platform tire being mailed to electors ns  ���well as being printed in full in -tbe  daily papers. Public attention i.s thereby enforced as well as invited. Possibly  an examination of the platform may  prove interesting.  The first clause, demanding a redistribution   bill, is admitted  to  be no  longer necessary,  bo we arc  assured  that for the measure since passed we  have to thank only a handful of Lib-  'cral members, who held the balance of  power aud forced tbeir views upon an  unwilling Conservative  government.  . This is so so glaringly contrary to fact  that refutation should be un necessary.  A brief historical resume may be in  order. In the last session of the Turner  ministry's regime, 1S98, a redistribution bill was passed M'liiuh the opposition of that day admitted to be in the  right direction but inadequate.     Tlie  demand foi: a fuller measure  was the  - chief campaign-issue of that year and  most   of    Mr.    Serolin'B   supporters  thought it entitled to that place when  his government was installed in ollice.  Mr. Semlin's administration  was rendered helpless, in  less than two years  ; by tbe defection  from it of a " handful  of Liberals" led by Mr. Martin.   Since  then no party has opposed redistribution ; all concurred in the last bill, aud  it is either gross ignorance of tbe facts or  worse to credit Mr. Martin or any of  his following with the lust bill.    :-  The second^clause approves of government ownership of-" tbe public service of utilities." ."What does this  mean? What sage wrote this? Are  not food, clothing and shelter utilities?  Do our Liberal friends advocate government ownership of the service of  these? However this clause is only  the expression of an opinion and the  party is pledged to nothing by it. This  criticism applies to nearly every clause;  they read rather as a list of subjects offered for debate than as ascries of purposes and aims of a political party.  who will contribute nothing valuable  to the solution of the problem upon  which perhaps the future of the Empire depends, namely, the British Liberals with whom Free Trade has still  equal sanctity with the Ten. Commandments, and the British and Colonial worshippers of Mi". Chamberlain  who despise the teachings of history  and political science.  This seems to have occurred" to tlie  members of the executive committee  for they li live appended more than two  columns of explanation ,U>  less  than  ' one column of policy.' The explanation  itself is rcfrcsbin g'and decidedly newsy ;  all our previous adn.iuistratior.s,  we  are.told, have been mainly   composed  of Conservatives andsiipported in tlio  Louse by Conservatives. ��� "Weaiciiot  told that the only unmixed government we have ever had,' that Was Le-  Icivcd eo bad that the voters of tbe  province regardless of all old dividing  lines united to' ciusb.wnslhc Liberal  .. government of Mr. Martin' of KM)!).  i Such stony indiffcrcutc of truth in  what purports, to be a statement of  fact, is a poor pledge of tbe sincerity of  the liberal party.

Tiiere are some more "pious opinions" about fanniug, roads, t-ublii  health and. administration of" land,  shrouded iu tbe same nebulous garments that beautify the worship ol  "government ownership of the public  -service of utilities.'"  In the conclusion we ore asked to  "Sssisl lo secure "cane,-progressive and  With a unanimity tbat no othcr.su l>-  ject has ever induced the press of Canada and of the colonies generally endorse Mr. Chamberlain's policy of preferential trade within the Empire, regret contemptuously Mr. Balfour's hesitation, and even more contemptuously  Ignore the opposition of Sir Michael  Hicks-Beach, tbe Duke of Devonshire,'  Mr. Ritchie and their Conservative or  Unionist followers as well as the whole  Liberal party of Great Britain.  Mr. Chamberlain is an uncompromising fighter and readily, stake* bis  political life on his present convictions.  He is undoubtedly sincere and zealous,  and by his labors has earned the gratitude of tbe whole British race. It is  almost ungracious even to reflect tbat  as late as twenty years ago���and Mr.  Chamberlain was then no novice���he  was equally zealous for measures far  different. In 188L he .was so pronounced a radical that Mr. Gladstone  feared to propose his name to Queen  Victoiia as a niemberof his Cabinet.  We do not propose to discuss the reasons for Mr. Cliauiberlaiu's change of  heart. But it is surely, not unreason,  able to ask that tlie same measure of  attention, - even of deference that is  paid to him, should be extended to  other statesmen who are equally sincere and; zealous a a ad have the additional merit of consistency.  The problem confronting British  statesmen is great and unique. Nearly  fifty years ago, Britain by adopting  Free Trndc.as a settled policy, elected  to continue to act, as the world's  workshop and bank and to allow other  countries to produce the raw material  for her use. The -hoped for results  from this policy have not been realized ;  ��� British' agriculture has declined almost  to the vanishing point, her food is purchased from other lands, "but though  this result may have been foreseen, it  was not expected; by the advocates of  Free Trado that rival nations, notably  Germany; and the United States,  would by the despised aud denounced  system of protection, attain positions  that threaten, if indeed they have not  already destroyed, the industrial and  .financial supremacy of Britain so'. Jong  absolute]y unquestioned.  IjiLerul statesmen, especially Mr.  Gladstone and Lord Itoseberry, have  discussed the decline of Britain asan inevitable development of the future.  But Britons generally are decidedly  disinclined'.to even contemplate sueh  an event. Jt lias dawned on their lenders that the chief hope of maintaining  .Britain's supremacy is in retaining as  sons of the Empire her children vvho  have to emigrate, that is they must, as  far as may be, be directed to the colonics, not to the United States, and the  colonies must be developed into strong  allies of the motherland. Tbo Hrltjsh  I.-sles can hardly retain supremacy  against the Russian, German and  American empire*,but lhe British Empire can and will. This is thc,,hope  and purpose or Imperialism. ;���    .  Belindas the question of means'.  Mr. Chamberlain lias been the llrst to  make up his mind as to the means and  has. njt.-iily advocated protection as a  policy for the Empire against the  world.  It is not always true that the "first  "Wc arc accused by the Tribune of  supporting S. S. Taylor, K. C. John  Houston is a designing rascal, and  should never have been admitted into  the councils of the Conservative  party."  The above paragraph appeared in  the Tribune of Tuesday, the 8th inst.,  as ft clipping from The Economist.  The first sentence, or words to the  same effect, did appear iu The Economist of the 5th inst. Something like  the second occurred in another article  but without any name being used.  Among decent journalists one of the  offences regarded as unpardonable is  the mutilation and misrepresentation  of articles in contemporary'journals.  Possibly the editor of.the'.Tribune did  not know this.  Tn describing secret enemies of the  Conservative party, Thk Economist  did use the expression "designing rascals." If the editor of the. Tribune  wishes to claim that title for John  Houston we have no objection. We  congratulate our. contemporary on  his late appreciation and'discernment,  but modesty will uot allow us to claim  the credit for the application.  ������-  .��,   I*.  .*���   -*���  ���*���  ���������  ���*���  .��-   ..   .*-   *��� .

George Fraser appears to be having  everything his own way in Grand  Forks riding, since Neil McCallum  dropped out:  "W. A. McLean of Hedley City, will  run in the place of Mr. Snodgrass in  Similkameen riding. Mr. McLean is  well known in Nelson.  "William Hunter will in all probability be elected in the Slocan, which  should be a source of congratulation" to  the clectors^of that riding.  If. the Houston'-campaign' fund depends on its sinews of war from the  proceeds ofthe smoking concerts, there  will be a dearth of "metallic influence."  The nomination of so'iuany successful, business men augurs well for the  Conservative party. British Columbia  has had a long reign of grafters, ami a  little business legislation might be beneficial to the province.

There ia a marked improvement in  tlie outlook for the silver-lead mining  industry in the Slocan, and it will not  be many months before the situation  there will compare favorably with lhat  at an j previous period in tlie history of  the country. The recent discoveries of  gold ore in the Lardeau are directing-  attention to a section of the Province  that hitherto has been little known.  The richness of some ol these discoveries.is almost phenomenal, and while it  is improbable that large deposits of  equally.rich ore will be fouiid, there is  tittle doubt that this now field will become au important factor in the general  milling development in British Columbia.' -- ���  .'.,..

Starkeys' Idea of Justce:  Extract from Thk Nbusos Economist,  August 15th..  Other letters were written to Mr.  Btarkey, but brought forth no response, so last Monday the following  requisition -was forwarded to tbe president of the association :  Fred Starkey, Esq., President Liberal-  Conservative Association, Nelson,  B. C. :'-������'���  Dear. Bib,���You have been repeated ly asked to call a  meeting of the  Liberal Association of tbe city, but  have failed to do so.   No meeting has  been held for months, though a general election is at baud.   We now request you to call a general meeting of  the ijlberal-Coriservative Association  for Wednesday evening in tbe board of  trade rooms, su��-h 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.  (Signed)     W. A. Macdonald,  John EiiWOT,  F. J. Bradley, ";'  Habey Bird.  Frank Fletcher,  T. F. Stoddart,  P. Lamont,  It. W. Hannington,  H.E. T. HAUI/FAIN.  This "was accompanied by the following personal letter from Mr. Macdonald:  Fred Starkey, President Liberal-Conservative Association, City :  Dear Sir,���I am 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 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.   MACDONAIjD.  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  eyer 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 tbat  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 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. Fred 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  ranlks, and Las broken faith a* to meetings arranged .with bim. to be called  for that purpose, and has also failed to  comply with or even had the courtesy  to reply to a request sighed by. ac-:  knowlcdged Conservatiyes for a public  meeting of the association y   .',,.      ,. ��� o  Therefore this public meeting of Conservatives approves of the calling of  this meeting so that the members ofthe  party as a whole may have an opportunity of being heard, and further-this  meeting condemns the course pursued  by the president of tfie. association and  declares his conduct betokens lack of  fairness and true appreciation of his  position and an apparent desire to act  solely in the interest of a portion only  of the party.
