Opposition Now Consists of One Socialist���Obsequies of British Columbia Liberal Party���Prominent  Liberal Leaders All Go Down to Defeat���McBride's Railroad Policy Endorsed by People.  The British Columbia Liberal party, which for the last seven years  has been suffering from political ennui passed quietly away on Thursday. Keen observers, even among  that faith, had evidently foreseen  the result for about ten seats were  allowed logo bj; (default, but among  the rank and file it was scarcely  conceived that the dissolution of " ye  ancientc party" was so near being-  reality.  From all over the country the  same old stoiy ariived, telling-- of  Liberal defeats and deposits lost.  The Opposition, which in the last  Hous-e was composed of two Socialists and one Liberal, is now reduced  to a single Socialist, the one solitary-  Liberal being- snuffed out along  with the Socialist member, Parker  Williams.     No  quarter appears   to  of the scanty  Opposition, contested  have been shown the Liberal leaders.  L. D. Taylor, proprietor of the'  great Vancouver daily, the World,  and (he defeated candidate for the  mayoralty of that "town, went down  to defeat in Rossland, Lome Campbell, general manager of the West  Kootenay Power and Light company, being returned. John Oliver,  who at oi\u time led the Provincial  Opposition, again attempted lo recover his lost scat forthe Delta, but  without avail. "Honest'John" is  the Reeve of Delta, and it is alleged  that he has sanctioned the employment of Japs and Chinamen on the  roads of that district; this, in view  of the cry being raised for the restriction of Asiatic immigration,  proved too much for his one time  supporters, so off came John's head.  II. C. Brewster,   the   former leader  Victoria and shared the same fate.  Casey, the defeated Socialist candidate for Rossland, in his address  declared that "there was''no need  for a Liberal party any more���it was  decidedly dead���its corpse was decaying." Evidently the electors of  the country are of the same opinion.  While the Liberal . vote has decreased in the province, there has  been a corresponding increase in the  Socialist poll, but owing to their  scattered nature they were unable to  return but one standard bearer, the  successor to Jas. Hawthornwaite,  the member for Nanaimo.  The statement credited to the  Premier that he would wipe the  Opposition off the map appears to  have had some substance, and if he  but keeps a half of his pre-election  promises as well as he has done this  one, the electors will have little  reason to regret their choice.

Gun Metal and Tan Finish  The preliminary  review and estimate of mineral production for 1911  contains the following from  the pen  of   the   government   mineralogist,  Wm. Fleet Robertson:  ,  "Hidden   Creek���This property,  situated near Goose  bay, Observatory inlet,   was extensively explored  by the  Granby Consolidated,  which  completed   its purchase  during the  year.    The  reports  of half-a-dozen  mining engineers submitted  to the  Granby directors were all favorable,  although estimates  of  the quantity  of ore available varied considerably  --from 6,000,000 to 12,000,000 tons  of ore in   "sight."    The company  regards'the'" following as a reasonable estimate of the average copper  contents  of   the   ore:   Taking   the  quantity of six to seven million tons,  it is believed the average will exceed  two per cent; calculating on  a tonnage of eight to twelve million tons,  it is thought an average of 1.65 to  1.75 per cent may be depended upon.  The ore also contains gold and silver values of about $1.00 per ton.  The company  plans  to  establish at  Goose   bay,   a smeltery  to  have a  capacity of 2000 tons of ore a day."  ��� ������-. Sometime ago the name of Anyox  was giviy.   to  the  postoffice  at  the  Hidden Creek mine, on Goose bay,  and  now another change has been  decided upon in connection with the  ,;SnRet of water  generally   known as  Goose   bay,   which   has   now   been  registered as Granby bay.  B.C. Mining  Death of P. W. Lover.  The people of Phoenix and Greenwood   will   regret   to   hear   of   the  death   at. Payette,   Idaho,  of P. W.  Lover, formerly  supt.   of the Rawhide mine here.     For some time he  had been a sufferer from an internal  complaint  and   last fall  visited  the  coast   in the  hope of  regaining his  health, <^iiite an  improvement being-  noted on hiit return;   but   some time  After    '  The prospects for the Payne mine  in the Slocan are becoming more  favorable, and it looks as if the old  mine, which was once a famous  shipper, will again resume its place  among the important shippers of  the province. To further this end  the management are still proceeding  with the driving of the 3500-foot  tunnel, which they declare will tap  the ore bodies at a vertical depth of  1600 feet.  The Hedley Gazette says :   " The  recent find on  the Dayton' is likely  to give an impetus to mining in the  eastern part of the Similkameen riding.    The   Dayton is  an old  claim  on which a strike was  made in the  closing  days   of   1899,   and   some  wonderfully rich  ore obtained from  it.    A   couple  of   shipments   were  made to   the smelter  and  good returns  received,  although   the shipments were made under very unfavorable conditions and the   sampling  indifferently carried out, but heretofore they were never able  to obtain  the deposit strongly in place.  There  are few camps that give  better encouragement  for exploratory  work  at medium  cost than the  ridge between the north and south forks of  Rock creek, and  the Dayton claim,  small in  area  as it is, should be a  good   point  from   which   to   work.  There are several other good showings in the immediate vicinity, and  among   them     is   Jas.    Copeland's  Leroi claim."  E. W.   Zwicky,  manager   of the  Rambler-Cariboo, mine,   five   miles  from   Kaslo,    has   completed    the  driving of a 5000 feet tunnel, cross-  cutting the veins on the  Rambler-  Cariboo at  a vertical depth of 1500  feet from the   top of the mountain,  demonstrating  that  the ore values  goes down.   The importance of this  discovery     is   fraught    with    great  possibilities for the mining  industry  throughout the  entire  district.     In  the   early   days  millions   of  dollars  worth of  ore were   extracted down  to the 600-foot levels, but operations  were reduced or abandoned in most  instances when  faults were   encoun-  Mr. Zwicky   is so   confident  r  Guests  Know  They are getting the Best  Beer brewed when yoa  serve  Phoenix  It is rich but not heavy���  and just enough ofthe delicious appetizing flavor  of hops without the excessive bitter.  .

Saturday, March 30, 1912  11       '"      ���  Argument Against Asiatics;  "No   man   has   the'right  to  cry  that the Empire  shall be free to all  comers except the one who is willing  to see   his  sister  marry  a   Hindu,  Jap, or Chinaman."  Speaking  before   the   St.   James  Literary   club,    in   Montreal,   last  week, Professor Leacock dealt with.  the policy of free admission  of the  Asiatics to Canada.     It was all very  easy, he said, to waive  the /lag and  shout  that  the  Sikhs   and   others  should be  treated as   the   equals of  their  fellow   white subjects  of the  King.     It could be said with truth  that the Sikhs have bled for the flag,  but the idea of general  equality of  the  British   subject was  a fallacy.  There were certain British subjects  such  as Zulus, who  were  hemmed  within a certain area, and were not  allowed   to   buy   firearms.

The Asiatics  peopled    the  finest  Captain Scott's Delay    -  Some people profess to be somewhat perturbed over the non-arrival  of our Capt. Scott,  but  the fact of  the matter is that Scott declared that  the object of his  trip was not only  to   locate     the    South   Pole,    but  was   also    for     the    purpose     of  collecting as   much  scientific   data  as   possible.      In   all   his   lectures  he gave the impression  that it was  not his   intention   to   simply   walk  right in,  and turn right round, and  walk right out again.   Reaching the  South Pole appears to be no pic-nic;  we have all read  of the   condensed  beefsteak   tablets   that  Scott   took  with   him, but   it came   as   a shock  when we learned that Capt. Amund-  son was actually furnished with an  " artificial landscape" to assist him  with his observations.     Perhaps the  reason  for Scott's delay is  trouble  with   his    "landscape";   he   might  be  even   bringing    the  pole  along  with him and perhaps the awkward  thing has rolled off.     He may also  have captured a herd of those cows  that Amundson  saw quietly munching   the   nutritious  snowballs  near  the   Pole.      The  latter   conjecture  would be enough to delay him a few  weeks.  m  ���'wW  Cures Coughs  Mathieu's Syrup of Tar & Cod Liver Oil  is a great Tonic and not only stops a cough  but enables the system to throw it off.

Had not the white race done enough  to deserve the holding of these  empty spaces of America against  the time when they would absolutely need them to preserve their very  existence.  Professor Leacock thoroughly approved of Australia's determination  not to have another transcontinental railroad if she could not have  it without Asiatics.  . The preacher's idea ofthe brotherhood of man as regards this problem, said the professor, was sadly  out of place. The very best thing  we can do for the yellow man is to  keep him away from us.

At  present,  observers  believe   that the success of  the Anglo-Belgian  loan is a healthy  sympton,  since  the  methods ofthe  four-power  group  were    becoming  bureaucratic and inelastic.

The German Army  The London Times has been publishing   a series of thoughtful  articles on   the German army  manoeuvres   and   some    remarkable   conclusions have been reached.    That  army is   declared  not  to   equal the  repute wherein it is commonly held.  The new German naval enthusiasm  is damaging in its  effect  upon  the  army, and the popular navy  is now  attracting officers   more   than    the  army, whose development has been  starved by sheer lack of funds.   The  nation, moreover, is declared to becoming less military and  more com  mercial  than formerly.    The corps  officers are  less simple  in  their life  and tastes and  less exclusively professional than of old.    Commerce is  beginning to attract the  class that  hiterto regarded only the army as a  career for a gentleman.  The army appears to have trained  itself stale. The ceaseless round of  intensive drilling has reduced it to a  machine, while individuality, freshness and initiative are crushed out.  Secure in its self confidence, the  army thinks there can be no difficulty in carrying out military operations which the armies of other  nations have found impracticable.  The cavalry is said" to be equipped  with out of date material and to  have become slow and ineffective.  The methods of firing in vogue appear so inferior that the army can  make no pretensions to measure itself against the French army apart  from numbers and confidence.

A FIREMAN S PERIL  How Zarn*Buk Delivered Him.  At 215 Fraser Avenue, Edmoiulton,  .Altb,.,   lives  W.   P.  Many,   a   former  member of the local lire brigade, who  has wonderful cause to be thankful for  the curative powers of  Zam-Sitk. '-He  ��ay��:    "A serious  skin   disease broke  out on my face, and spread, until I was  in  a   terrible state.     The spots   and  little ulcers were frightfully irritating,  and yet when scratched or nibbed they  bled and smarted.   Shaving caused me  agony, and sometime. I would have to  go two weeks without a shave.   J tried  home-made remedies, herb salves, and  various  other   preparations,   but   the  sores got no better.    When   Zain-Buk  was mentioned I had little faith that it  would w. able to do me any good.    My  case seemed .such an obstinate   one.    I  gave it a   fair   trial,   however, and the  first box made such a wonderful change  for the .better that it gave me   encouragement to continue,     I did so, aud to  cut a   long story  short, Zuin-l.uk, in  the end, (mite  cured   me.    My face is  now clear of all traces  of  the   terrible  disease, which troubled uie for so long."  Thousands of sufferers from eczema,  blood poison, ulcers, chronic sores,  piles, ringworm, cold sa.03, cuts, burns  and skin Injuries, have been relieved  and cured, as "was Mr. Mahy, by Z&ni-  Buk.

The Second Narrows Bridge  The Vancouver Shipmasters' association to a man are still of the  opinion that the only bridge of a  serviceable nature to be constructed  over the SecSnd Narrows, is a high  level structure. This bridge question has taken up a lot of time of  the association, and their antipathy  to a swing bridge is most pronounced. Mr. McNaug.it, the promoter of the scheme maintains that  a high-level bridge at this period is  out ofthe question.  Yukon Season Opens  The new season's work in the  Yukon has opened, but' contrary to  the usual conditions there is no big  demand for labor. It has been reported that many men are heading  that way from the outside, some of  them being bound for the scene of  the reported strike on Sixty-mile.  With regard to Sixty-mile, report  says that nearly all of those who  started for that place have returned,;  and no pay, except on Discovery has  been found.  The Yukon Gold company, of  which the Guggenheims are the  chief owners, are now hauling one  of their largest dredges from the  Upper Hunker creek, where it has  worked out the ground, to Dawson,  to be shipped by steamer to Fairbanks. This movement marks the  entrance of the Guggenheims into  the Fairbanks country and the  Tanana valley. The dredge is fitted  with buckets of seven cubic feet  capacity and is capable of moving  4000 yards per day.  Arthur Rarrio, ol Cobble hill, recently shot a full-grown panther in  his garden.     He got $15 bounty.  The New Westminster police  raided another opium Joint last  week and arrested one man. Two  " lay-outs "were confiscated.  For carrying a loaded revolver  and being.n possession of a black  handkerchief with, two holes cut in  it, evidently a mask, a foreigner  was recently sentenced to a month's  imprisonment.  The initiation of construction of  the new bridge over the Nicola  river, between Coyle and Canford,  has been authorized by the provincial government and work is to be  commenced at once.  .  Asa result of Dr. Grenfell's recent visit to Vancouver, the philanthropise work which he directs  amongst the fisher folk of Labrador  will benefit to the extent of over  seven hundred dollars.  Kate Shepherd, who told the  magistrate at Victoria, that she  was the daughter of a clergyman  and a teacher of music, was sen-  tenced to two month's imprison-,  ment when convicted of vagrancy.    ���  The   first  federal  subsidy  to  the  provinces under  Hon. Martin   Bur-  rell's Aid to Agriculture Bill will,   it  is   expected   reach   the half million  dollar   mark.      The   apportionment;.,  of this sum among the provinces on.  the basis of population will, it is be-��  lieved, provide enough  tor the  beginning,   while  preparing   the way  for a larger expenditure  next year.  British Columbia's portion  amounts  to $27,000.  The grand chapter of Royal .Arch  Masons, which met recently ip Toronto, elected Dr. Sutherland, of  Revelstoke, as grand superintendent  of Kootenay district, thus recognizing his great interest in and influence in the western work.

It is safe to say that in a few years Port Mann will be one of  the big-g-est, if not the biggest grain shipping- ports on the Pacific.  Already there has been secured for Port Mann, a Million Dollar  Flour Mill, Glass Works, Steel Mill, Wood Working Plant, Car-  ��� riage Plant and Grain Elevator. Several other milling and wheat-  buying firms are in treaty for sites there.  The Canada Car Works, a twenty-five million dollar Montreal  concern have taken a site near Railway Addition, and it is expected that these works alone will ultimately employ 5,000 men.  These are only a few of the many industries that are coming  to Port Mann. There is everything to indicate that Port Mann  will be one of the busiest and most progressive cities on the  Pacific coast.  Does it not look reasonable that an Investment in Port  Mann is safe, and that money will be made easiiy and  quickly? The time to buy is right now; there is no  money made buying when a boom is at its height.
