The orators  on both side3 are now in that constituency, and while the government will  make every effort to secure the election  of Air. McDonald, the Opposition will  work just as hard for the return of Mr.  Stoddart. Advices from the seat of war  indicate tliat'Mr. McDonald will be returned by a substantial majoiity; Many  of the electors were strongly opposed to  a contest, believing that Mr. McDonald  should have been relnrncd by acclamation. The Opposition speakers are  trying to- make capital out of the fact  that the present Government has increased taxation, overlooking the fact  that the extravagance of the Governments which they supported ir tide this  taxation imperatively^ necessary. The  constituency covers considerable territory, and it is not likely full -returns  ���will be received until a day or two after  the election.  company in the readjustment. Of  course there are several minor matters  that have not yet been taken into consideration, but these questions will be  taken up with the Nelson wholesalers  when Mr. Peters and Mr. Mclnnes  reach here in September. As regards  the railway commission, in view of  what has already been done, it 'is not  likely that the Nelson men will go before the commission.  Mining Recorder Lucas, of Kaslo,  was in the city Thursday ..evening en  route to the coast. Mr. Lucas has a  months' holidays, and will spend the  time at Victoria and Vancouver. Mrs.  Lucas has been on the coast for a couple  of months. Speaking 0/ business generally in his district, Mr. Lucas says  there is a noticeable improvement,'and  that the revenue at his * office has  greatly increased during the past year.  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  Brief particulars have been received  of tbe marriage in London of Bishop  Perrin and Miss Moore in July. The  service was performed in All Saint's  church, Margaret street, at 10 a. m.,  and was followed by the celebration of  tbe Holy Communion. The officiating  clergyman was Venerable Basil Wil-  berforce, D. D.t Archdeacon of New  Westminster, assisted by by Rev. Prebendary Whitworth and Rev Maurice  Bailey. Amongst those present was  the Countess of Aberdeen. ..Oathe conclusion'of the ceremony the Bishop and  his bride left for Ufracombe, Devon.  They were to leave Liverpool on August 11th, and after spending a time at  Banff and Lake Louise reach Victoria  about September 1st.  Candidatesfor political oflice worry  fur too ranch over the support or opposition of newspapers. .Some of their  friends are unsophisticated enough to  go about before launching a candidate  and ask publishers what their attitude  is going to be. These gentlemen do not*  mean to be   impertinent, and ought to  be treated politely.    To tell them it is  none of their business is gratuitous information.   One of the many popular  delusions about newspapers,  remarks  an exchange, is that they can make or  mar the fortunes bf candidates for office.  Political amateurs are always saying  thak.tbis.or that ideal candidate could  be elected so easily, if #11 .the uewspa-,  pers would only forget their private  feuds and unite in urging the people to  vote for him. This is contrary to nearly  all experience.    Nothing is more common than to see an ideal candidate defeated in spite of almost unanimous  newspaper support.   Some newspapers  - cultivate the fiction of their powerful  political influence as they cultivate lie-  tion   about their circulation and the  value of their advertising.    What the  public wants from newspapers'is truthful and impartial   information about  candidates for oflice.     It wants little  advice aiid will have no dictation. The  The quarterly meeting of the British  Columbia Fruit Growers'- Association,  which was held iu Nelson this year,  wa3 interesting-from everj, point of  view.-     Although the attendance - at  both the afternoon and evening sessions was large, it seemed to many the  importance of the subjects discussed  should   have resulted in attracting a  greater number.   Just now the citizens  of Nelson are beginning to realize that  one of the great industries of the future, so far as this district is concerned,  must be fruit.   That being admitted, it  ia important that a thorough knowledge of the best  methods  of fruit-  raising, should prevail, and * this information could not be obtained in a better  way than by profiting by the experience of practical fruit-growers,   The  address of Thomas Cunningham, Provincial   Fruit Inspector, was particularly w.orthy of- study. " He related at  length what had been done in the way  of protecting and developing the fruit  industy of British Columbia.   He told  of the means . that had been employed  to    secure    British    Columbia   fruitgrowers against  the pests  that   had  ruined.the iudustry elsewhere^    Mr.  Cunningham's  admission  that along  the banks of the Kootenay arm existed  tlie best conditions  At the residence of A. H. Gracey,  last Monday evening, Miss Ida Gracey  was "married to A. G. Low of Vancouver, the ceremony being performed by  Rev. J. T. Ferguson, ^fter the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Low left for Banff  aud Montreal on a wedding trip. They  will return in a few months and make  Nelson their home. Mrs. Low has resided iniNelson a little over a year,  coming here from. Gauanoque. She is  extremely popular amongst a wide circle of acquaintances.  and realizes that all these victims  might be saved by the provision of  sanitariums andruj}-to-date treatment,  the responsibility iipon society, and especially upon the men of wealth who  might do much for humanity by affording tlie sinews of war, makes itself  keenly felt.

In connection with the carnival there will be  all kinds of novelties, tight-rope walking, balloon ascensions, juggling, tumbling, etc. The great event will be the  coronation of her majesty the queen  of the carnival, which is promised to  be a beautiful spectacle. The nominees  for queen so far are : Miss Annie Pierce,  of Phoenix, Miss Burcell, of Rossland,  and Miss Rose Hoffman, of Grand  Forks. Nelson, so far, has not nomin-  ! ated a candidate.  the seven-inch stern line of the Islander has been recovered from the  position 'in the stern sheets, in which it  had been coiled, when the vessel sailed  from Skagway on the night of August  14,1901. The line was in an excellent  rftate of preservation. ���"��� The Islander  went down at 1:45 a. m, August 15,  1901. Capt. .Finch has not yet been  able to get any trace of the vessel's safe,  which is supposed to contain a large  amount of treasure.  ;N^BEBf|||^g  N  ews of the  M  &MI  mes  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  enthusiastic supporf of"all tlie"news-,  papers rather prejudices a candidate  than helps him. The public bias the  notion thnt it is competent to make up  its own mind. Perhaps it is self-deceived and would be better served if it  would let us make up its mind for it;  but we do not know how to cure the  universal .illusion. The successful candidates for ollice are those who humor  the people by trying to reach and convince them directly, instead of expecting the newspapers to do it for them.  There is no more important move- j  ment iu Canada to-day than the formation of organizations to right the White  Plague'. Consumption carries off more  victims annually than all other contagious diseases put together. In the  days before science "discovert*! -~'~lx>tb~  preventatives and cures for the disease  it was regarded as both incurable and  hereditary and a morbid apathy was  engendered which caused people to  look udou persons and even families  afflicted with consumption as doomed.  The wonderful discoveries of the past  decade have cast upon the society the  responsibility of educating away this  impression. Practically every case .of  consumption, if taken in (time can be  cured, and there is absolutely no- reason why contagion should result if the  most ordinary precautions are taken.

Burtt Morgan, who for a year or  more had charge of the Baptist Church  in Nelson, is now "general manager of  the Chilliwack Power & Light Co.,  Lt'd, recently incorporated for * the  puipcoe-crf-barncdiiiTj; the- CliiUiwaCk  river.

The company expects to develop sufficient power before long to-operate a  tram line between Chilliwack and New  Westminster, a distance of 50 miles. A  by-law has just been; passed by the  Chilliwack council, granting the company a twenty-five years," franchise,  with the privilege of renewal for ten  years more.  Fred Starkey has returned from his  ���visit to Winnipeg, where he went to  interview the ollicials of the C.  P.  11.  freight department with respect to the  rates, in territory, which is regarded  as tributary to Nelson.   Mr. Starkey  discussed- the matter at length with  the officials, and wheiirthe whole matter was-thoroughly investigated was  somewhat surprised to learn that the  Nelson wholesalers were not such great  sufferers  as   might  appeal*    at   first  glance.     Indeed,"* according   to    Mr.  Starkey it seems as if Nelson had now  everything that couid be   reasonably  expected under    the    eireum tauces.  There  is  some  disappointment  that  Fernie is not included iti-tbe Nelson  territory, but to accomplish-this would  necessitate a re-arrangement of the territories    tributary    to   the "different  wholesale  points  as  far   castas Rat  Portage.   The schedule of rates issued  by   the   C. P. R. on  the first  of  the  month will' show that Nelson has received every consideration from  the  obtainable anywhere, will no doubt surprise even many of.our own people.  W. J. Branditu also gave a very practical address in the way of showing the  best varieties to plant, more particularly  with reference to apples.     He recommended Duchess and Wealthy for the  earlier varieties, and the Northern Spy  for the winter.  .-.Other speakers spoke  along the same lines, but in the evening Martin Burrell. of Grand Forks,  gave an address on the subject of "Beautifying the Home," which should be  published   broadcast    throughout the  land.     Mr. Burrell isa fluent speaker,  and is certainly posted on the subject  of horticulture.    He traced gardening  from the earliest civilization, and indeed proved that it was really the history of civili zation.      He told of what  was being done in  foreign countries to  encourage  horticulture.    He advised  amateur gardeners not to begin on too  large a scale, and thus avoid turning  what should be a healthful recreation  into a work of hard labor.

A vein of high grade ore has been uncovered on the Humming Bird, adjoining the E. P. TJ.  The Gem Mine, in Long Lake camp,  shipped a car of ore this week to the  Greenwood smelter. The property is  under bond to Robert Wood.  Work on the Silver Cloud, recently  bonded to Alex. Robinson L. A.  Smith and associates, is said to be  making that property look very well  indeed. The vein has widened out,  and assays of $183 have been secured.  The force of men has been increased.  E. H. Thurston, of the .Carmi, West  Fork, has purchased most of the machinery on the Defiance from William  Fowler, and it is being removed to the  first named mine, where a small force  of men is employed. Mr. Fowler has  stopped work on the -Defiance.  Eight men are at work on tbe Reliance group, in Summit camp, owned  by Coot and Lauder, and bonded by  the Rathmullen .Co. Sinking is proceeding, a depth of nearly 50 feet having been obtained. A trial shipment  is to be made shortly of a couple of cars  of ore now on the dump.  Work has been started ou the re-  timbering of the Biooklyn shaft by  Supt. Collins, and three shifts are expected to be employed to get the work  done as soon as possible. The compressor at the mine was started this  I week so thatrthe pumps can be used by  air, instead of steam, while.the timber-  ing is being done.  Percy F. Gooden'rath, of Kamloops,  has just issued a special number in connection with the Kamloops Standard,  which is a credit not only to the editor  but to the printing office in which it  was published. The name of the publication, is'..' Where Fortune Smiles."  It has over 100illustrations, and is very  neatly printed.

S., has completed  At last there seems to be some prospect that the differences which in the  past have torn the Conservatives of Nelson assunder will be settled. There is  a disposition on the part of the great  majority of Conservatives to bury the  hatchet, and go into the forthcoming  contest with the one object of winning.  Of course there will be some who will  fluenee as a poster, auiLthe editor during the past few weeks has come out in  his true colors. By his conduct he has  emphasized the truth of every accusation that has been made against him  for the past four years.' The Conservative mask has been torn from his face,  and he is now exposed as a nondescript  politician with a strong desre to  play  try aud  perpetuate the feuds of the! into the hands of the*Grits.    For this  reason, those Conservatives who in the  past, but these will be disposed of by a  request to stand aside, or go over to  the party in whose interest they appear  so anxious to labor. The eyes of many  trusting Conservatives have recently  been opened to the attempt that has  beeu made to drive them out of their  party, aud they   now express them  selves as determined to no longer ac-  Bc con denied the practice of planting cept their politics from sources that  flower gardens in the middle of the are   undoubtedly contaminated   with  lawn, and was pleased to notice that it  was no longer com mon. A great deal  of good would be accomplished If Mr.  Burrell's speech was printed in full,  and distributed freely throughout the  the country. A pleasant feature of the  eveniug programme was the song  by Rex Macdonald.)  Onslow- Newling  Grittisra. Moreover, there is a disposition to resent^the unwarranted  interference of the Liberal newspaper  ofttliiU city in the affairs of Conservatives. The Daily News could be better  employed looking after the concerns of  the Liberal party than giving advice  where it is not required:   As to the Trl-  past have been disposed to give him  the benefit of the doubt now openly  condemn the man who for his own  purposes tried to lead them astray.  With a united front, tbe Conservatives  of Nelson can reasonably hope to carry  Nelson at the next election. There ean  be 110 doubt that tbe Conservatives are  greatly in the majority here, and unity  of action is all that is required to accomplish the desired-result. And there  is only one way in which that harmony  but one thing is certain their presence is  no longer desired in the Conservative  party. The Conservatives can no longer  afford to have, traitors in  their camp.  Fortunately   the    loss    in     numbers  to  the   party1 will   be    insignificant.  The     majority    of     the    dissidents  have    in    the    past    voted   for   the  Liberal   candidate   and   will    do    so  again.   The   number of. men yet espousing the cause of the king of dissension who can be regarded as Conservatives   is scarcely   more   than   a  score,    and   there   is    every   reason  to.believe that   they   will   not. permit    their   party, to   suffer  by con  tinuing  adherence to  the cause  of a  disappointed politician.    There is no  further   reason    why    Conservatives  should be longer  disunited.   Let tbe  work of healing old   sores continue.  There will be something to forgive and  forget  on   both   sides.     Fortunately  the survey bftheJiimbo.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  We desire to call the attention of the Chief Coin-  tirissioner. of Lands and Works to tbe nece-sity cf  without delay appointing an official scaler of logs to  be stationed here, whose duty it would be to be on  the qui vive to prevent the defrauding of the Government in the measurement of logs and consequently  the amouut payable thereon. Such official would  also be of much service otherwise. For example, a  party is disposing of a quantity orlogs, and a dispute  arises between the vendor and purchaser as to the  ���proper measuremeut of them ���a. not unfrequent occurrence. This official could be appealed to in such  a case by the dissatisfied party ; and if such official  knew his business and were of high character, his decision would usually be readily accepted by bolh parties and expeusive and often unsatisfactory litigation  be thereby avoided. The simple fact tbat there  would be such an official to appeal to would exercise  a very considerable influence in causing logs to be  properly scaled. It would, we submit, be advisable to allow an appeal from such au official to a  Board of Arbitration, one of the arbitrators to be selected from each side (vendor and vendee} and the)*  to select the umpire, the decision of such board to be  final, and the costs of the arbitration to be borne by  the party who would be unsuccessful on such an ap-  -peal. This, we are informed, is a statement of the law  and-practice in. the Province of New Brunswick,  where it is found to ope ate satisfactorily. Mr. Martin, at present stationed here, could have bis powers  extended to include these duties ; or if his present  duties would not leave him time to attend thereto, another official should be appointed at once for the  above work. Proper regulations should be framed  covering such duties. W. are all fallible, lumber  companies as well as others ; and an official with the  above duties stationed here and th re in the interior  of British Columbia might conduce to Its* fallii iii y  in practice and help the revenue of B. C not a little.  Tbe Ottawa Citizen says Lord Dundonald has  not  the slightest intention of entering Canadian  politics,  cr of accepting a nomination   for parliament.      He  made that perfectly clear before he left and will give  the report au emphatic denial as soon as the fact that  his name is being used in this connection reaches him.  The intention of the government  press in spreading  the report is obvious.     It is desired to create lhe impression   that   Lord   Dundonald is   a   partisan   in  Canadian politics, whereas his interest in Canada and  iu the militia of this country is of a purely imperial  and patriotic character.     The probabilities are good  that the imperial government  will exhibit its confidence in and appreciation of the General by appointing him to a  high  command under the   new army  council scheme which is nowigoiug rito effect.    Premier Balfour has already announced  that such   was  the government's intention prior to the  trouble  arising here between Lord Dundonal 1 and the  Canadian  government, and we are satisfied that when the entire  facts are in the possession of the imperial authorities  the result will be to still further convince  the General's fitness for tbe high command.
