ERNEST ;MI__ER.p-���"-~>. ;.���-.-  ; John-Mclnnis, of Phoenix, the So-,  ci.alist candidate was the' next speaker;  and did notthink it fair "that ^ Mr; -Miller had not given him the opportunity  to speak, so that he could have a  chance to reply to some of the speakers.  (When he replied to this, later, Mr.  Miller thought that, having spoken  three times before"here, arid been'sarid:  wiched in between other: speakers each  time, in his ;pwn meeting "he had aright  to arrange the speeches as,he, thought  fit).    ��� ; ii4*r/f 3$m  Mr. Mclnnis.preceded to:cntiqse  the Liberals and Conservatives" alike  and asserted several times that a vote  for Miller was a voteifor McBride and  the C. P. R-., which seemed to please  some of his hearers. "Mr. Mclnnis  -���who is particular about not being  confounded with \V. W. B. Mclnnes,  late of the Yukon���also referred to  the special, trains,that Premier McBride  had in this section, in order to keep  his appointments. The speaker thought  this the best of evidence of collusion  between the McBride government and  the C. P. R. After criticising the Liberal and Conservative platforms, and  the attitude of the premier on the  eight-hour smelter bill, Mr. Mclnnis  sat down.  Burrell'g Splendid Speech.  Martin Burrell, of Grand Forks, was  the next speaker, and addressed the  audience for about an hour, touching  quickly on matters that have been  brought up in this campaign. Mr.  Burrell, next to Premier McBride, is  one of the best speakers who have appeared here this campaign. He speaks  easily, without making undue efiort,  has a good command of language, is  lamiliar with his facts and, knows how  to present them.  Mr. Burrell first answered some of  the questions propounded by Mr. Mclnnis before taking up his speech,  pjoper. He showed the utter fallacy  of supposing that the McBride government was the creature or tool of the  C.P.R., from the very nature ��� of the  case, railway taxes in this province  having been increased some 500 per  cent, against the emphatic ' protest of  Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of  the C.P.R. Mr. Burrell did not claim  responsibility for the acts of others regarding the eight-hour law for smelters,  but put himself on record as to where  he stood on the question.  Referring to land matters, and the  fact that J. A. Macdonald, leader of  the opposition, had stated in Grand  Forks that he is in favor of land grants  for new railways, Mr. Burrell called  attention to the lact that this is the  only government that British Columbia  has ever had that has not given away  one dollar in money or one acre of  land, to railway corporations. The  Liberal party is not in this position,  and cannot go to the people with any  such statement. It is one thing to  make bald assertions from the platform  which have little foundation in fact,  but it is another thing  to  bock them  eiL  he ha'a^pMi: ^p^WtidnS; tpf Hive jit  passedya'andK p^^jhjtm^sel^pnj record  while '^f^i^Jm^0i^0^A^-M  the oppositip^^c^pd^b|ing at all  on the measuire5by*^%entfng. himself  .from the floor of,Uhe house, when the  division was'"taken; ^   -'--'��-*-^ ,/  ' Referring to a conversation he had  'witHv_Mest'Miils''af'well-knbwh^  ist of.Greenwood,\.Mr..

Next week Wednesday the postponed annual meeting ofj the Skylark  Deveiopment Co., Ltd., will be held  in Phoenix; when reports will-be heard  from the officials for the last twelve  months.  :Monday: -night' of .this,; week the  Brooklyn mine ot the Dominion Copper Co.. resumed operations, after being closed just a week on account of  lack of steam coal. A car or two of  coal are now on hand.  The Granby carpenter gang, under  Harry Pleasance, is still working on  the headworks at the new Victoria  shaft, and there is still trouble in securing large and long enough timbers  for the extensive undertaking.  The 30-drill Rand air compressor  (or the Dominion Copper Co. has been  assembled in the new building erected  for it on the Idaho claim, and now  awaits the arrival of the large electric  motor which will be used to drive it.  At last the British Columbia Copper  Co has been able to get two of its  large new furnaces in operation, notwithstanding the car, coke and power  shortage, and hopes to keep the two in  blast from now on, also adding the  third.  The New York Stock Exchange has  listed.103^081 shares of the stock of  the Granby Consolidated Mining;Smelt-  ing & Power Co., Ltd.; it will also list]  31,919 -shares  prior: to July. 1, 1907,!  when-this stock has been issuedwin.ex-'  change- for stocktof^^ipojpar"vSfe^r*'  r; The company's ~ surplus; is at least;  $2,750,000, as compared with $2,500,-;  0001 on June 30, .1906. ..  p^.Theliistmgyaptice^says-.tfiat 'the corporation commenced business in -190.1,  purchasing'all the properties and assets  of the following;;;cpmpanies:  Old Ironsides Mining Col  The Knob HiHGold Mining Co.Ltd.

Net  earning of the company since  to   Be   Increased  $3,000,000.  to  Shareholders Asked to Authorize New Issue.  British Columbia Copper shareholders have been asked to authorize  an increase in the company's capital  stock of 200,000 shares, of the par.  value of $5, making the total authorised' capital $3,000,000. . Of this- in-  creasfc, - ri6,i���k> shares will'-be offered to stockholders pro rata.  The directors will take all stock at  par not subscribed for by the stockholders. Stockholders of record Feb.j  20 may subscribe to 30% of their  holdings at that time at $5 per share,  payable $2)4 March 11, and $2^4  May 10.  President F. L. Underwood says :  "From Feb. 1 the earnings of this  company will be devoted to payment  of dividends."  The proceeds of the new stock are  improvements will barely be covered  by the $500,000 to be raised.  President Underwood estimates an  approximate cost of about 8^_ cents  per pound for the refined copper output of the British Columbia Copper  Co., and earnings of approximately  $1,000,000 a year with two furnaces in  operation on present price of copper.  He adds : "The principal mine of  the company has been further opened  up, to insure an adequate supply of ore  for at least two furnaces. Additional  mining properties have also been acquired and are now being developed.  The erection of a new plant involved  the stoppage of operations for several  months, a cutting of revenue and entailing heavy expenditures with resulting indebtedness which must be provided for from net profits or through  capital account.  . "The business of the company in  sraeiting and converting ores and materials for outside companiesTs increasing; this requires larger working capital, inasmuch as customers and mattes  must be paid for when delivered at  smelter, but are not-realized on by  company until from 60 to 80 days  thereafter.  "While all three furnaces are completed, only one is in blast, the prevailing car shortage making it impossible to procure an adequate supply of  coke."

Nelson is now one  game in the lead and the local boys  are anx:ous to even matters up, con-  si'quently a fast and exciting game is  anticipated. As no other Boundary  town has a hockey team worth while  this year, the Phoenix boys have to  stand the entire expense of the visitors,  and  hope for a  large   turnout   at   the  ! rink Monday evening, the puck to be  laced at eight o'clock sharp.  , The Brooklyn hotel has made ar  rangements to secure election returns  by direct wire, beginning about eight  o'clock this evening.

These are the reasons why the members of the McBride government should  be returned to power today, and why,  in our opinion, they will be endorsed  more strongly than at the last provincial elections. Every one of the above  are statements of fact, and cannot be  controverted. Voters should remember them and act accordingly.    -'  Mud Campaign  a Boomerang.  It seems an impossibility for the  Liberals to conduct a campaign without throwing mud at every candidate  that appears before the - people, no  matter what other party he may represent ; and the campaign that is closing  at the \ polls --today isno exception to  the rule. ' In this province the chief  offenders have been the Victoria  Daily Times, owned by Hon. William  Templeman, a member of the Dominion cabinet, -and the Vancouver  World and the Nelson News, aided  and abetted by a number of lesser  ligbtsiin the newspaper firmament.  No story or alleged scandal was too  strong lor those papers to print and  dilate on in almost endless columns of  matter, hashed and rehashed till it be  came nauseous. Over and over again  have ��� they sprung mare's nests, and  never yet have they been able to make  one of the disgraceful stories stick or  to prove their point, even with the aid  of royal commissions of enquiry. 1 As  a rule they have-found it needful to  eat. plentiful dishes of crow of the  blackest kind. Such newspapers may  be a credit to the profession, but 'we  fail to.see it.  It has been ont continual carnival  of mud slinging, from a time, several  months before the provincial elections  were announced, to the present���and  the mud did not stick, as far as we  can learn, in a single case, except it  came back on the throwers .like a  boomerang.  An unprejudiced man should rejoice  that he did not belong to a party that  would descend to such questionable  tactics,' but rather that he belonged to  any other party. The authors of those  canards should -be ashamed of them  selves, but they probably get behind  the statement that in politics anything  and everything is fair. We should be  thankful that there are some left that  do not agree with them.  have the endorsement of a single labor  organization, and the very fact that he  insisted on tacking the word labor lo  his platform shows he had ^no confidence in the Liberals as friends of labor. He has no possible chance of  election, and will be lucky if he saves  his deposit, having only been put  up at the earnest behest of ttie.Ottawa  politicians. He does not believe in  railway bonuses, though his leader," J.  A. Macdonald, stated publicly that he  (Macdonald) did.  Better terms for this province will  be sooner obtained by a vote for Miller  than in any other way.  A vote for Miller means a vote for  the McBride government and the  keeping out of the meddling Ottawa  politicians from the affairs of this  province.  Willie, from Yukon, if elected at all  in Vancouver, -<v��ill sit in opposition at  Victoria. The people can easily- see  the game put. up. at Ottawa, and will  have none of it.  If Miller is elected with the rest- of  the government ticket, there will be no  fear of the Grand Trunk Pacific getting the big land grant they are after  so hot and heavy. Railway land grants  are a thing of the past in British ^Columbia.        As was to be expected,,the scandal  factory at Vancouver, in-.the^Wdrld  office,-has sprung another 'at. the .-last  moment. But the game is too thin-  it has been attempted, to many.-_n)es,  Besides, the World is utterlydiacred  ited'by the rank-arid file. all * over it he  province. It.has cried "wolf" once  too often.  /T_E  EASTERN  TOWNSHIPS  BANK  ��.' O.'lM'SS.  'Issues  Drafts  Money Orders  Travelling Checks  letters 6f-Credit  -Payable Everywhere.

Boundary will havetwo good representatives at, Victoria hereafter���men  thoroughly familiar with the needs ^of  the-district, and who have,the confidence of the electorate as well as. that  of the government���and the latter will  do no harm. Ernest Miller will no  doubt do good,service there for Grand  Forks riding, while Edward G/Warren,  who will represent1 Greenwood, will  ride in the same political band wagon,  and support the first Conservative and  first' stable-government-that -British  Columbia ever. had.  Itching Piles.  Issue Well Defined.  ,Today the electors of British Col-  umbia>wilLhavea chance tc cast their  ballots and express ��� their approval - or  otherwise of the government now in  power in this province. The campaign  has been short and sharp, but the  people have had a chance to hear both  sides and will register their opinion at  the ballot boxes.  The issue is now well defined, and  that is whether the people will decide  to return the McBride government to  power^or.will turn the province over to  the Liberals, who are on, record as  favoring the Grand Trunk'Pacific in  every possible way, and who.wish to  have that company secure a gigantic  land bonus ' from this province for  building through it���which they are  forced to do in any event���something  also that the Liberals, in the Dominion  campaign of two years ago, positively  asserted would not _e asked for. They  may now say otherwise, but the records  are against them in almost every newspaper in the province and in the Dominion.    So much for that.  The questiou, then, for the intelligent voter to decide���the man who is  not a Grit because his grandfather and  father were the same, or a Conservative for a like reason���is, what has the  McBride government done for the province that it should be given a new  lease of power ? Here a few things  may be mentioned.  It has brought  the  province  from  running behind  financially at the rate  of about  $750,000  per annum, to a  point where  there   is  now an annual  cash  surplus, a  surplus   that  will   be.  ���-pent in the province.      It  has   made  1 lie financial world  at  large have con-  f'dence in   the province, the credit of  a hich is now on a stable basis, some-  1 ung  it   has  not  enjoyed   for  many  joars.      It  has  improved the  school  ���t stem,   placing    more    power    over  si hools in   the  communities  afiected,  a' d yet  requiring those  communities  to  pay less direct   than   in  any other  pi.jvince in the Dominion for the same  purpose.     It  has  reduced   the  civil  service  list,  and secured  better and  more  effective work from the government   employees generally.     It  has  kid down the important principle that  the time  for  railway land  grants  has  passed.     It has raised   tbe  on railways 500 per cent.     In short, j ter�� to liberals themselves, six weeks  it has taken the province out of chaos 'ago.

Today the voters of this riding will  choose between the three candidates  as to who shall represent them in the  provincial legislature for the next lour  years, and, for ourselves, we have not;  the least doubt as to what the verdict  will be. But let us look at the candidates and what they represent.  Ernest Miller is an old resident of  the Boundary, a young man of grea$  promise, who can hold his own on the  floor of the house. He will support  the present government, which means  that this riding will have a government  member. He believes, as do all Con-I  servatives, that the McBride govern;  ment has been a, good onej judged  strictly on its record, which also is the  verdict of outsiders���and they say that  outsiders see most of the game.  John Mclnnis, the Socialist candidate, has been a resident of Phoenix a  number of years, and bears a good reputation here among his fellow-workmen.  In any event, however, the Socialists  will have'"'a: "small following in the  house, the great bulk of the electorate  not believing in their theories. Consequently, if elected, Mr. Mclnnis will  cut but little figure in the legislative  halls.  H. W. Gregory, who represents the  Liberals, on a so-called Liberal-Labor  platform, is a gentleman practically unknown to the riding, either among the  taxation I laboring men at large, or for that mat-  HANDBOOK  (New Edition Issued Novenbar 15; 1906.)

The mother who has acquired the  habit of keeping on hand a bottle of  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, saves  herself a great amount of uneasiness  and anxiety. Coughs, colds and croup,  to which children are susceptible are  quickly cured by its use. It counter  acts any tendency of a cold to result  in pneumonia, and if given as soon as  the first symptoms of croup appear, it  will prevent the attack. This remedy  contains nothing injurious and mothers  give it to little ones with a feelina of  perfect security.

The following about Dominion Copper, which appeared last week in the  Boston News Bureau, contains some  interesting matter:'.'. r  The shares of the Dominion Copper Co., are about to be introduced  on the London market, a block of \$o,-  ooo shares having been acquired by  strong English interests.whose clientele  are holders of large amounts of railway and other Canadian corporation  securities. These shares were largely  contributed by four or five of trie  largest stockholders of the Dominion  Co., and the result will be to give; the  securities of the Dominion Co. a wider  and, therefore, a more stable market.  The Dominion Copper Coi has  been delayed about six weeks in  the installation of its new big furnace.  The installation, however, is nearly  completed and M. M. Johnson, chief  of Samuel Newhouse's staff, is now in  the Boundary, and will remain there  until the new smelter, plant goes into  operation, when the Dominion Copper  Co. will have a daily smelting capacity  of 1,500 tons, and with this capacity  should output in the neighborhood of  about 9,000,000 pounds of copper  annually.  Several original features about this  new furnace deserve attention. Among  these is the method of handling the  water after it passes through the jackets. .Instead ofthe usual arrangement  ofpipes, the heated water here runs  directly into the four main supportiug  columns at the corners of the furnace,  and from these into the main waste  water pipes. The furnace will be fed  mechanically by side-dumping steel  cars drawn by electric locomotives.  The mammoth new crusher, which is  of the same new pattern as that in use  at the Granby mines, is now installed.  The ore is fed to the crusher automatically. '������ After being crushed, it is hoisted in a bucket elevator to the bin floor,  where it will be dumped upon a link  steel belt conveyor. This will be arranged so as to carry ore to any of the  bins, old or new; and';will -take the  place of the hand tramming. _*he  crushing plant has a capacity of 150  tons per hour. The old crushing plant  will be used exclusively as a sample  mill. - "���'"  ,-.;- -:.>. ������:?���;?      :y  Managing director Samuel New-  house is authority for the statement  that treating but 600 tons of ore per  day the Dominion Copper Co. has  been able to reduce both mining and  smelting costs to such a- degree that it  is today producing its copper as low  as the Granby Co., which is " treating  2,500 tons per day. It is believed,  therefore, that with an increase in copper production' of over' xoo per cent  the Dominion Co. willbe able to still  further reduce costs.  During 1907 all the mines of the  company as well as the smelter will be  operated by electric power, at a saving  in cost of over $100,000, as compared  with 1906 steam power costs,  With its 1,500 tons per day smelter  capacity, the output of the Dominion  Copper Co. will be more than one-half  that of the Granby Co., and Mr.  Johnson promises to make copper for  8 cents per pound.  The Dominion Copper Co. is capitalized for $5,000,000 stock (par $10)  and $1,000,000 bonds. Officials of  the Dominion Co. state that, with its  new smelter' capacity in smooth running order, the company should in  1907 make net earnings of about 14%  on the capital stock, after allowing  for all fixed charges and sinking fund  requirements.  The company has over $700,000  cash, available to its treasury, and by  resolution of its board of directors,  the engineer in charge has been instructed to immediately prepare plans  for an increase in smelter capacity to  2,500 or 3,000 tons. The money  available to the treasury will be sufficient to do this, without touching net  earnings.  Common    Colds. Are   the   Cause   of    Many  Serious Diseases.  Physicians who have gained a national reputation as analysts of the  cause of various diseases, claim that if  catching cold could be avoided a long  list of dangerous ailments would never  be heard of. Every one knows that  pneumonia and consumption originate  from a cold, and chronic catarrh, bronchitis, and all throat and lung troubles  are aggravated and rendered more serious by each fresh attack. Do not risk  your life or take chances when you  have a cold. Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy will cure it before these diseases develop. This remedy contains  no opium, morphine or other harmful  drug, and has thirty years of reputation back of it, gained by its cures  under every condition. For sale by-  all druggists.  James A. Macdonald, leader of the  opposition, has been mighty careful in  nearly all of his campaign speechifying  to come last on the programme. This  precluded the possibility of any one replying at that meeting to his wild  statements.  After today there will be a job lot of  political candidates with glassy eyes  and aferble brows hurrying for cover.  .Like, all newspapers of Canada, the  Pioneer is favored almost daily with  some one of the blue books that are  ground out at the government printing  office at Ottawa, almost continually.  'This week a copy/of the. civil service  list for 1906 came along, giving the  name and salary cf every employee of  the Dominion government. But there  was one thing lacking in the well-  gotten up publication. It did not say  anything about the,work said employee  does, nor how much time the members'  of parliament are spending in the political campaign in-British Columbia.  . -: *���*  A newspaper editdr across the border"  in the state of Washington,  recently  gave notice that if his delinquent subscribers did not pay up, and that with  out further ado, lie would publish their  names and the amounts due in an early,  issue of his weekly.,   It is to be hoped  tbat this awful threat will make said  delinquents realize how necessary it is  for the, editor to  be  able  to  look   at  their coin once a year.    Of course   it  would not be necessary for any paper  published in British-Columbia to  resort to such means, as subscribers   lo  papers in this province would, without  doubt, hasten to remit before it came  to such a pretty  pass as  the  above.  And yet  the   editor   can- hardly   be  blamed, for he .has .earned it; it is his  by right, and   the' delinquent  should  make it his business   to  settle without  being dunned.  ���w  As our readers ^know, the Pioneer  Annual is out, andc by this time the  nearly a thousand subscribers to the  Pioneer���those who; are paid for a  year���have had a chance to see what  it is like. Thus far nothing but commendation for the work has been received, and while know that it has its  defects, we believe-that it "will be of  material benefit in making known the  vast resources of the Boundary district. That it will have a wide distribution is a foregone matter, for already,  besides the large "list" of regular readers everywhere,-among other, out-of-  the-way places, copies have gone to  Ceylon, Transvaal, South America,  Mexico,/New.- Mexico, Paris, Dawson  and others.   ~ .  - The work of. publishing the Annual  in an office like that of the Pioneer  was a task of itself, but the, six employees of this establishment co-operated to such an .extent that, barring  the delays incident <to congested railway traffic and a few minor matters  like that, the issue went along nicely  and satisfactorily. We have been  asked dozens of times if the map in  five colors was printed by the Pioneer  and have answered as many rimes that  it was, every color and every line of it.  It should be remembered that the  Pioneer is different from the average  country printing office���it has the best  talent that can be had at any price.  We think that we are within bounds in  believing that the Annual will be, beyond all question, the best advertisement that this country ever sent out  with paper and ink; and if it is that,  it will have accomplished something.  J. Charles Halsey, of Phoenix, certainly did put Mr! Macdonald up  against it at the Grand Forks meeting  last week Friday, when' he made him  admit before hundreds of people that  lie was not against railway bonuses in  this province. It was a damaging admission for the Liberal /leader, and will  cost him many a vote, or we are mistaken. ���':  p tit  Duncan Ross gives out for public  consumption that the Liberals already  have 24 seats sure, arid will probably  have 32. ' Then what is the use of an  election at all? Premier McBride  might as well hand the reins of government right over to Ottawa and be done  with it. What stuff and nonsense some  of the politicians do unload!  t��t  Little Willie from the \ ukon'cut the  Boundary out of his political itinerary  this campaign. Perhaps he rememberd  the strenuous time he had here on'his  last visit, during the -Dominion cam-'  paign���-when the socialists made it  interesting for him. Or, possibly, he  knows his own fences down in Vancouver are none too secure. Either is  a reasonable proposition.

Get a free sample at any drug store;'  But the task of mailing the 6,000  copies of the Annual is something to  contemplate. Think of the postoffice  department charging sixteen times as  much postage for the Annual as for  the regular issues of the Pioneer, and  twice as much as for any bulky magazine or paper, no matter where published, that you can secure on any  newstand in Canada. Nor is that all.  We must affix postage stamps to every  copy, and as it requires four cents for  each copy, and there are no Canadian  four cent stamps, it means double the  work that it should take. And further,  it is an outrage that Bimothy Teaton,  or any other concern in the east, can  make a deposit with the local postftice  for circulars sent out, getting an electro which he can print on his wrappers  for tons of catalogues with which he  floods this western country; but the  Pioneer is not permitted to do anything of the kind. We must use postage stamps, lick 'em and stick 'em and  do the best we can. Why is not the  Pioneer or any other concern entitled  to the same privilege that a cheap-John  store in Toronto gets regarding a matter of this kind ? Oh, no; we are not  prejudiced; why should we be, when the  postoffice department of this great Lo-  minion, presided over by the Honourable Rodolphe Lemieux, is so ably (?)  and consistently (?) conducted? If  ever a department needed overhauling  and the relegation of some of its moss-  backisms to innocuous desuetude, that  of the Dominion of Canada is the precise one.

Work on the new Great Northern  spur to the Granby's Victoria shaft has  been delayed by non-receipt of the  easements to cross the Dominion Copper Co.'s Idaho ground, but the matter  is expected to be settled very shortly  now and construction on this mile and  a half switchback started.  The record of 8,041 tons for treatment at the British Columbia Copper  Co.'s smelter for this week, chronicled  in our tables, establishes a new record  for that smelting works, but there is no  doubt that this will be exceeded in the  near future, when the three furnaces  are all in blast.  The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada, which owns  the Center Star mines, at Rossland,  and the St. Eugene mines, at Moyie,  and treats the ores of these mines,  arid the Snowshoe, at its Trail smelter,  reports a copper production for 1906,  of 3,932,831 pounds.

Dinsmore, of  Grand Forks, spent a day or two in  camp this week on official business.  Master Robert Keffer, editor and  proprietor of the Anaconda News, was  a visitor in the city yesterday.  Wm. R. Matheson, who went back  to Bedeck, Nova Scotia, last July on a  visit, returned to Phoenix this week.  Edw. G. Warren, Conservative candidate, who fully expects to be elected  in Greenwood today," was here Wednesday. Many "Liberals are supporting  him- ' ? ��� ,  " J. L. Martin left- for Spokane -and  Idaho yesterday, intending to be gone  a week or more. Mrs. Martin went as  far as Spokane, where she will remain  for a time.  Joseph J. Bassett returned last week  Friday from a trip to Camp Hedley,  where he says the mine and mill are  closed down, primarily due to cold  weather.  M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer  for the Dominion Copper Co., arrived  a few days ago from Salt Lake City,  and is spending a little time in the  Boundary.  G. W. Rumberger returned Wednesday from a trip to Seattle and Portland, and was fortunate in not being  held up by any of the numerous delays  on the railways to the coast.  Mrs. John A. Morrin left this week  on a visit to her old home in Walla  Walla, to be gone a week or two. Mr.  Morrin, after attending the bonspiel of  the Kootenay Curling Association at  Cranbrook, went on to Moose Jaw and  Regina.  A. D. McKenzie, proprietor of the  Repo laundry, left Wednesday on a  visit to his old home in Nova Scotia,  being called by the illness of his father,  whom he had not seen in 20 years or  more..

Hood as deputy returning officers. Polling clerks will be  Palmer Cook and W. X. McDonald.  P. H. Buraham, of Grand Forks,  district passenger and freight agent for  the Great Northern, was here Tuesday,  and says that trains will be operated  on the extension to Oroville as soon as  the weather permits ballasting the  track from Molson to that point.  George II. Goebel, of New York,  Socialist speaker, addressed a large  audience at Miners' Union opera  house last week Friday, and expounded  the principles of Socialism to the evident satisfaction of his hearers. The  other parties were not represented.  Samuel Newhouse, managing director of the Dominion Copper Co., has  been elected president of Nipissing,  the Cobalt concern that had such a  meteoric career on the New York curb  a short time ago, and in which the  famous Guggenheims gave it out that  they lost a million or two.  . Now that the campaign work is all  done, the last speech has been delivered and the last alleged scandal has  been unloaded at the last minute,  the voters of the, province will today  register their opinion at the polls, as to  whether they wish a continuance of  the McBride government, or prefer to  have the Liberals in the saddle, with  all the entanglements that will inevitably follow from ��� the Grand Trunk  Pacific.  ' Thosa who have travelled over a  goodly portion of the province, assert  that there is no doubt but that Mr.  McBride and his supporters will be  returned, and with an increased majority. Of course, these are the figures  of a Conservative, and should be taken  as such. But there is good reason to  believe that they will "be found to be  about right when the ballots are  counted.      ,'y.  In the Boundary, Ernest Miller feels  perfectly confident of carrying Grand  Forks riding. He has been working  hard and has gained many friends in  his canvas. The candidacy of Herbert  W. Gregory, of Grand Forks, on the  so-called Liberal-Labor ticket, is looked  upon more as a joke than -anything  else. Mr. Gregory has appeared vat  few meetings, and will be fortunate to  save his deposit. With John Mclnnis  it is different. Mr. Mclnnis will poll  his large vote in Phoenix, running  away behind at other polling stations.  E. G. Warren, who has been conducting a successful campaign in  Greenwood riding, is almost a sure  winner today, over both Socialist and  Liberal candidates.  tn  We have a larger assortment than ever  all grades in such well known makes as,  Waltham Elgin  Rockford        IUinois  and Omega  with ��� cases to suit in fjkt. gold, gold filed  and nickel,  every one absolutely guaranteed.
