Last evening the Conservatives held  a rally at Hardy-McKenzie hall, and  at noon to-day will hold another at the  same place.    At fast night's meeting  the hall was crowded to the doors,and  some of the best speeches of the campaign here were heard;     G. \V. Rumberger presided, and introduced the  speakers, the first of which was George  A. Fraser, the Conservative candidate.  Mr. Fraser held the attention of his  audience, and told just where he stood  on the questions   before  the people.  He did not thjnk the Socialists themselves expected to' win, and  therefore  it was between the Conservatives and  the Liberals.    The speaker then went  on to show how little the Liberals had  done for the cause of the laboring man  in the past, notwithstanding the claims  set forth by the leaders of the  party.  He also referred  to  the  coal  license  matter, about which such a noise has  been made in this campaign, and stated that Premier McBride had told him  personally that Jie intended  to issue  the licenses.  Mr, Kerr was the next speaker and  repeated, In large part, the address he  gave here last week on the rise and  progress - of7. Socialism.7 -As-^nsual he  was well received.  W. H. P.'Clement, the Liberal can-)  didate, was then called upon, but for  reasons which seemed to be' personal,  he declined to take parr and left the  hall.  Mayor Martin Burrell, of Grand  Forks, then took the platform and delivered a thoughtful and interesting ad  dress. He took up what several Liberal speakers had said at previous  meetings, and appealed to those present to think carefully on topics being  discussed jr) this campaign, as he had  done, and they would' decide that the  Conservative party offered tho best  opportunity of giving this province  what it has needed for several years���  a stable government. Mr. Burrell is a  pleasing speaker, and interspersed his  remarks with witty anecdotes that illus-  tated the points he made,  Then Ernest Miller, of Grand Forks,  made an address, and also showed the  uselessness, now, of attempting to  carry out the aims of the Socialists, no  matter how much they might be believed in. Mr. Miller also severely  criticised the attitude of the Liberals  toward labor.  Edward Hewitt, of Vancouver, was  the last speaker of the evening, and  dwelt more particularly on the advantages of the Conservative form of government.  The meeting was a model in one  respect, in that it did not last so long  as to tire the listeners. Next Tuesday  Premier McBride will be in Phoenix,  and on Thursday Sir Hibbert T'upper  and Hon, A. S. Goodeve are expected,  to speak for the Conservative party.  Speaking to the Pioneer man yesterday, Mr. Fraser, said that he felt certain of victory at the polls nest Saturday, and that wrd from all over the  province was to the same effect,  POLITlCAl* POINTERS.  7: ' -'���'  'ft'     ���'."������"    ' 7: ���  .���'.���������'������. ���. ���  After speaking at Greenwood  and  Midway last week, William A.

After discussing the; situation thoroughly, it was decided to ask for bids  for the installation of the septic tank  system for disposing of the sewerage  from the institution; and this week Mr.  Martin has received several tenders for  the work. It is expected that the cost  will be within $500, and will give the  hospital an excellent system, that is approved by the best /hygienic authorities. ,       ��� ���' ;V   '  .The board also considered the issu  ing of tickets good for hospital attendance, to others than miners, and virtually decided to do; this, .although the  details were referred to-a committee to  report back to the hoard.,,  MY BUIIP  TO ATHELSTAN  C.

Council Did Little Business, '  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council besides Mayor Rumberger,  there were present Aldermen McDonald, Birnie, Porter. Notice of Chief  of Police Flood having been appointed j  a provincial constable was read, and  petitions were received asking for sidewalks on Victoria and Brooklyn avenues, which were referred to the Board  of Works. No other business came  up besides the payment of the following accounts.  W. McGillvray $ 4.00  McDougall    10.00  Last Wednesday R, A, Bainbridge,  divisional engineer of the C. P. R., at  Nelson, arrived in the city to start the  work ol running survey lines for the  purpose of building a spur from the  Winnipeg mine to the Athelstan. Mr.  Bainbridge and his assistants are now  busy at this work, and it is expected  that, in the near future, it will not be  necessary for the Athelstan operators  to have the expense of hauling their  ore the mile or more to the Winnipeg  spur.  The new spur is likely to be about  three miles in length, in order to get  the necessary gradient, the Athelstan  being considerably lower than the  elevation of the Winnipeg.  It is the custom of the C. P. R. to  require a mine wishing a spur built to  put up the cost thereof, which amount  is rebated in ore freights as fast as  earned. This spur will probably cost]  between $5,000 and $10,000, and the  Athelstan people will probably be required to advance this amount to get  the spur built, What they a.ro now  paying for hauling by wagon would  likely cover this in the course of six or  eight months, so that it is a good proposition for them. And the ore can  probably be taken to the smelter as  cheaply from the mine all rail as it i.s  now from the Winnipeg mine.  I").  T. W. Hodgins  10.00;  C P. R.  25.84  N. Lemieux  45.00  G. W.

Mclntyre & McDo^aJd have taken  over the cp,al business of Morrin,  Tl\qmp'son & Co., and expect the first  car in next week from Lethbridge.  The first fatality' that lias, occured  for years at any property in!!Summit  camp happened Tuesday mOrriing' at  the Emma mine, which is being operated by the Hall Mines smelter, of  Nelson. Archie Connor, one of the  old time'prospectors of the'Boundary,  was the unfortunate victim, losing his  life by being crushed . by a mass of  ore. . "   ������._;   ���'.��� .       .;  Connor and Morrison, the latter a  brother of the foreman/had gone into  the ore chute to ioosen some large  pieces of ore that prevented the balance from going down, and provided  themselves with a rope, to be quickly,  caught in case the ore should suddenly give way beneath them. The ore  did give way, as expected, when loosened, ' and Morrison succeeded in  grasping the rope, while Connor , un  fortunately missed it, and went down  in the falling ore. Death", must have  been almost instantaneous, as it took  the mine force several hours, to get, his  body out, there haying probably been  twenty or twenty-five cars of oreabove  him. Dr. -G. E. Spankie, of Greenwood, was sent for, and arrived; long  before the remains were,recoyered,:but  life had long been "-extinct; The re7  mains were terribly mutilated.  Connor was a' native of Belfast,  Maine, where, he heus a 'father and  mother residing. He was a man of j  over 50 years of age, and unmarried, j  He is one of the old prospectors in the  Boundary,;-;has b.feeh in this .section  jsince;i89/5;'and havirfg'-"properties indifferent camps, several being- located  in Summit camp. Last_winter he  worked at the Granby mines, and but  little over a month ago, he joined  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8. When  work was being done on the Nellie  Cotton group in this camp several  years ago, Connor was the foreman in  charge.  Coroner Foster impanelled his jury  Wednesday afternoon to consider the  case. The inquest was held at Denoro j  City, near the scene of the fatality,and  after hearing the evidence the jury returned a verdict of accidental death,  without blame of any kind to the management of the mine. Dougald Mc-  Innis was foreman of the jury.  That same afternoon James A.Clark,  undertaker of Phoenix, started to drive  over to Summit camp, to -take charge  of the remains of Connor and prepare  them for burial. While on the way  liis horses ran away and threw Mr.  Clark out of the vehicle, thereby;  breaking one of his legs near the ankle, j  Lawrence McKelvie, who was with  him, was also thrown out in the runaway, but escaped with a few bruises.  Mr. Clark was brought back to Phoenix  that night, where he has the best of  attention at the Phoenix General Hospital.  An effort was made to get into communication with the parents of Connor  by telegraph, but without success. A  dispatch was also sent to his sister-in-  law, at Kalispell, Montana. The fun-  eral'will be held to-day at ten a. m.,  from Clark & Binns' undertaking  rooms, under the auspices of the Miners' Union. Rev. T. Green will officiate, and the remains will be interred  in the Phoenix cemetery.  Nelson Actually Held a Fair.  The rumors that have been afloat  for a few days; to the effect that a fair  was to be hold at Nelson this week,  bad some foundation, after all,although  but few in the Boundary were aware of  it, owing to the poor advertising. It  was held this week, but the attendance  from this section was poor���naturally.  The fire brigade of that city asked the  Phoenix fire boys to attend and take  part in the hub and hub race. When  details of the race were asked for, it  was found that service carts must be  used. As the track would likely be  heavy the invitation was declined.  The Phoenix team did not care to  take part in a tug of war.  ��� There was a.slight difference with  the weighmen at the Morrissey coal  mines, in the Crow's Nest, this week,  but it was amicably arranged with the  management.   . .. ���  7 :������ i.v..  The slag hauling locomotive was received at the Sunset smelter at Boundary, Falls .last Saturday, and will be  placed in commission as soon, as the  fails can be laid.  I-ast Saturday the seven-drill air compressor arrived at, the Oro Denoro  mine, .arid is now being set up at that  property., As a result the shipments  area little smaller than usual this week.  This week the Snowshoe again tied  its best record in shipping, sending  out 2,880 tons of ore to,the Boundary  Falls-smelter. If cars could have been  obtained the record would have been  broken again.  James Sutherland and Phil McDonald, who are working the Elkhorn,  Providence camp, this week shipped  a car of the'richest ore that was ; ever  taken out in the Boundary.. It went  to.the'Trail smelter. ���-.,������'���  .'��� R..

It is said that a deal for upwards of  $100,800 has been,made for the Voi-,  canic group on the North I*ork of Kettle "river, and that a cash payment has  beenmade by the Chicago syndicate  that yesterday sent a force of diamond  drill men up to the property. .������ -;  This week the Winnipeg sent out  twelve cars of ore, thus materially increasing, the shipments of last week,  which were five or six cars. The compressor building has been enclosed,  and a night shift was placed at work  this.week for the.first, time since work  was resumed just a month yesterday.  Is If AMlher Bluff?

Goodell, of that institution, is  said to  have had any number of samples of so-  called ore brought to him  for  testing  purposes bypropectors.    In each case  the samples   were   a red substance,  somewhat in appearance,like the Athelstan product,   but so far they have  proved to be nothing but red shale, instead of oxydi/.ed iron,  carrying .good  gold \alues, as does the Athelstan.  Advertising rates furnished on application.  Legal notice* 10 and sccutN per line.  Four weekly insrrtlotiRcoimtitute one. month'**  advertising.  The story of the Athelstan is typical  of western mining camps. -When1,it  was last worked, the operators insisted  on using machinery and hoisting, and  in doing underground development,  never dreaming that good profits could  he made from quarrying the ore at the  surface." The result was that operating expenses ate up the values, and in  a short time the mine was closed.  6  13  20  27  2 3 4 5  7 8 9  JO It 12  14 15 16 .17 18 19  ���21 22 23 24 25 26  28 29 30  , Sir Thomas Lipton certainly has  his troubles. Unable to lift the long  coveted cup, he is now trying to fight  off appendicitis in a'Chicago  hospital.  Only seven days more of suspense and the country will be saved.  It looks as though the job would be  done by the Conservatives, loo, this  time.  Ante-election prophesies are somewhat popular, yet they are often afar  off from the result*. Predictions ��� are  too apt to be colored by party leanings  to say nothing of the habit of claiming  everything in sight.  A few of our exchanges have little  but politics therein. Possibly there is  a golden reason for this, and perhaps,  also, politics for the time being make  more interesting reading than "snakes,  cats and yellow dogs."  One pleasant feature regarding the  campaign in this riding thus far is the  absence of personalities. That's right,  gentlemen; keep them in the back  ground, if there are any. A clean  campaign is greatly to be desired.  The Granby Co. is nothing if not  progressive. Therefore, it is safe to  say that something will be heard as  the result of the annual meeting to be  held in Montreal in a couple of weeks  that will be of greater interest to the  entire Boundary country.  Eight furnaces are now treating ore  in Boundary smelters. But this is only  a tithe of the number that will be in  blast when present plans are matured.  Every new furnace, also, means the reduction of costs, arid the consequent  enhancement of future dividends.   ,  George A. Fraser, the Conservative  candidate for this electoral district, according to the best informed politicians; will lead the list at the polls next  Saturday. He is not making as much  noise as some of the other, candidates,  but his work will undoubtedly count,  just the same.  Now it is different. The soft oxydi/.ed ore is easily quarried or picked  out and shipped at small expense. The  hoist is not in use, and. there is, no  need for power drills. The pleasing  result is that, from amine that heretofore ran behind, it has been transposed  into ore that is more than paying its  way. The judgment of David .Oxley,  who has been foreman under both,administrations, and who ..wished to adopt  the present system of mining. before,  has also been borne out by the results.  Speaking of ore quarrying,, calls to  mind when this plan  of mining was  first introduced in the Boundary district over three years ago at the Granby mines.    The Pioneer gave some at  tention  to the innovation, and was  laughed at by other Boundary editors  for suggesting such a thing as, getting  out one on the simple quarrying plan.  Just the same, every large property in  the Boundary is to-day doing exactly  this thing and some of them'.-conduct  their  mining operations in no other  manner.    Not only is it done at - the  Granby mines, but atthe Mother Lode,  Snowshoe, Sunset, Oro Denoro,   Emma, Athelstan and others.  t  A big force will be employed at the  Enterprise in the Slocan this winter.  . ,.1-ast week'7-271 tons were  shipped  from mines in and aronnd Republic.,  At Rossland the Jumbo is increasing its output "to 1,000 tons .monthly.  W. B. Pool proposes organizing a  new mining company which will take  over the Oyster-Criterion at Camborne  and -Lucky Jack at Poplar.  r The recent strike made on the American Boy, in the Slocan, has widened  out to 22 inches of clean ore, assaying  81 per cent, lead and 160 oz. silver.  The Poplar creek townsite has been  staked not only for a pre-emption, mill  site, half a dozen mineral claims, railway land, townsite and by applicants  for purchase, but now has placer posts  stuck all over it.  A company to be known as the  Morning Star Mining & Milling Company has been Organized by a number  of Philadelphia business men to work  the Morning Star mine, about five  miles west of Nelson, adjoining the  Poorman-Granite group.

Grand Forks News-Gazette.  Do Not Want Joe���The "white  shirted hoboes" of Rossland do not  seem to take kindly to the selection of  Joseph Martin as leader of the Liber  als. They surely do not imagine that  any other selection would be agreeable  to that gentleman himself.���Vancouver Ledger.  Fellow Electors:  At the request ot the Liberal .Association of this riding I have consented  to contest the coming election in the  Liberal interest. While I personally regret that the honor, of carry ing the Liberal,  standard to victory has not fallen to  other and stronger hands th'a'n mine, it  is with no misgiving as to the result  that I enter on the-campaign.. 1 am  in this battle to win, if by stienuous,  straight-forward fighting any political  battle can be won. I believe it tan.  What is needed is united effort 011 the  part of Liberals and all others who  desire to see relorm in the government  of this province.  , The condition of the province has  become intolerable. Blessed by Providence with vast' stores of w'ealth in  mines, forests, agricultural lands nnd  fisheries, British Columbia has had its  very good turned. to evil by a long  series of personal,, sectional clique  governments of 'nun who have-exploited the. people's property for pri  vate gain. We have-.a -population ol  177,000���men, women and children,  Indians and Orientals���and a public  debt of $6,300,000; representing $35  per head, or $175 at least'for each  adult man in the province. I'lie average cost of governinent in the other  provinces 0! Canada ..is "about $2 per  head per annum; villi us it is seven  times greater, or $14.25 per head. In  salaries alone we pay more than $2 a  head, or oyer $376,000 a year.  Every year we exj>fcnd more than our  income. Last year we went further  into debt to the tune of $750,000; and  Mr. Carler-Coitoni a former Conservative finance minister, says.that if the  accounts of the lust tour.; years were  properly investigated it, will be found  th it in that short lime we have spent  $5,000,000 more than our revenue  from all sources.   1-  The present premier was a member  of the assembly during those lour years  and he has .never.protested against the  prodigal scale of expenditure. On the  contrary the very assets from which a  fund might be derived to meetthe cost  of government have been wasted. As  a minister of the Crown, Mr. McMride  was a party to.- the orders-in-council  granting large'7areas of valuable coal  and petroleum 1 lands in Southeast  Kootenay to the C. P. R.���a fraud  upon the legislature, which was prevented, riot by Mr. McBride, but by  the watchful zealofuLiber.il member.  The excuse given by Mr. McBride.for  his official act iu agreeing to the grants  shows that he is utteily unworthy to be  tiusted with the care of the people's  property.    He^ook the word ol .a col  league that it was all right. What  guarantee have we that another col.-,  league will not .-'gain hypnotize Mr.  McBride,into giving away further tracts  of thej)ul)lie domaiii?  Hut when bona fide locators comply  with the'law of the province, stake  coal lands according to .law, and- tender the price.fixed, by law, Mr. .",1c-;  Bride reluses to grant ;the licences  which the hiw says shall be'granted to  those who.h^ve followed the requirements of the An. He/prefers to keep  the question dangling for parly advantage,���the last refuge; of a weak politician. Oris that he still, hopes to  "deliver the goods" to the C. P.' R.?  Hy,a piece of trifikeiy*t|uite" in.kHep-  ing with the traditions ot the political  gamesters with whom he1 has been so  long, and still is associated, the honorable premier has cut short the, campaign. It' will be almost inipos-  sible-J'or nie . to - have the privilege  of seeing you all personally in the  three weeks left before polling day.  For this reason I publish this open  letter ill', order that you may klfbw  whure T-stand oil the issues before you.  It is now your turn to take' peisonal  part in the government of your province. Act in the way you want youi  representatives in parliament to act.  Vote with a single eye to-the best interests of our .common country. As  the candidate of the Liberal.iparty, I  respectfully ask your votes and, your  influence'to elect me because l~!b"elieve  that neither at the hands 01 tile Mc-  Hride government, nor at the hands of  the theorizing socialists will any, practical, business-like improvement,upon  the past misdoings take place. -���j -f  The Liberals have had no opportunity to show'their mettle in the political arena of this .'.province!" But"'the  administration of public affairs by .'a  Liberal government at: Ottawa since  1896, is a striking example .of. what  Liberalism, in action means. National  unity from'ocean to ocean; a loyalty  to British connection evidenced in  deed instead of mere lip loyalty; a  system -ol taxation equal in incidence  and in, protection to home industry instead of a system of governinent aid to  layoreil manufacturers; a determined  stand against the Oriental deluge of  low-standard civilization; an h'one��t effort to bring capital .-and labor 7into  harmonious working for, the: good of  all; energetic work toward peopling  the west and   toward "providing  ade-  I am in hearty accord with the platform and manifesto of the Liberal par-  Si,,, ihe province.

Williams of Phoenisf,'; 7 ; / .;  *���*  Phoenix camp: has become justly j  famous for its great bodies of ore, and  on that.account is attracting the attention of the metallurgical world more  and more each year. The London  Mining Journal tells of a new process  of ore reduction called the Phoenix  process, invented by Messrs. Ashcroft  and Swimburne. Mr. Ashcroft speaks  of its four stages as the essentials of a  "cyclic process," by7 which "all the  metals and sulphur are recovered with  losses which are surprisingly small,and  without the consumption of any description of fluxes."  Sizing It Up���Sizing up the situation from Nelson, the Liberal Conservatives will carry seven seats in Koot-  enay-Boundary, two in Cariboo, three  in Yale, six on the Island, and should  have no trouble in electing six more  in Vancouver City, the Lower Fraser,  and the North Coast.���Nelson Tribune.  whatever else tends to the betterment  of the Canadian people are the planks  of the Liberal platform iu the, federal  field. ' The same bioaJ ideas dominate  the Liberals of British Columbia.    7  particularly support the following principles as of immediate interest to  this  riding,..  ,_.....'���  1. The peoples' property whether  land, timber, mineral!, or the fisheries  should lie administered lor the benefit  of the whole people with a view to lessening the huge burden of debt and  taxation' now resting oil us. Only;  those who in good laith will utilize our  public propeity in lorwarding-settlement and developing our natural industries shuuld tie allowed to, acquii'r  an interest iu any .''part". Of the-/public  domain.  2. The nulling laws should be  amended and simplified alter a cuitftii  enquiry through a competent commission. Then tinkering with them  should,,reuse. In. the development  .stage there should be''no luxation <>i  miners or milling pruperty. Develop'  ed mines should bear their shaieol the  public burdens in ptoportioii to t,hr  net output.  3. No further aid in land or money  should be given   by  this  province  to  transcontinental railway projects.   l**iil-  lest liberty should be given to the.-V.,  V. & K.--'railway, company, to complete  the' constiuction   ol their   line.

The province should set the  'example of obedience to its own laws.  ���\\ under our statutes individuals have  acquired-rights in the public domain,  such rights should be-at once transferred to them.  ��� The course of the government in  reference to the coal lands of Easi  Kootenay shows that in their.: opinion  we are governed not ..by law, but;, by  ithfiir-whim as influenced by,,ihe count  of: voters'noses.

O'Farrell, of Butte, recently  visited the Boundary, and had the following to say about the mining resources of this section.  It is astonishing how little the outside world knows of this section of the  far northwest, not one man in a hundred thousand could tell you whether  Greenwood and Phoenix were in the.  States, or in Canada, or in.Alaska, and KLStern refineries.  !]"- A- H<-'inze ���f  I   .1...    r. _...    ..-     l!���,^  4-Un.     mmlttrv       rtrtCCl Hi L  lime dykes in British Columbia, even  though they do contain fabulous  wealth in gold and copper. It is four  miles from the Oro Denoro to the  Ironsides and the chances are that this  dyke of iron, copper and gold ore extends the entire length. The intervening ground is unprospected; it is  rough and mountainous and clothed  with virgin forests, owned by the Canadian Pacific and F. A Heinze.  ���  Capital a'cd Labor Needed.  From'these figures it will be seen  what the copper industry in this country can become. The extraordinary  thing is that both capital and labor are  badly needed, capital to build smelters  and labor to mine the ore. Every  smelter and mine in British Columbia  complains of the scarcity of men, and  labor is paid the same in this country  as in Montana. That is $3 for surface  miners, $3.50 for underground miners  and an eight-hour day.  The smelters of this country get  their coke for 25 per cent, less than  the smelters of Montana, but it costs  double to ship"the blister, copper to the  Butte haye been exhausted and   Montana's greftt mining camp is i\s idle as.  'ltitii.a, wt   111  \>aiiuutl,  Ul   liivilunrtu, unu  yet here are two big transcontinental lhe firel l0 realize the mining possibil-  ratlroads battling for rights-of-way all hies of the wonderful country and it  over this section. I can travel from was hc that projected the Columbia  here to Montreal in a palace car on  lhe Canadian Pacific railway and 20  miles from here I can take a palace  ear on president J. J. Hill's railroad  and run right through to New York.  President Hill has not yet been able  to get any of his lines into Greenwood.  He is exceedingly anxious to but Sir  Thomas Shaughnessy has for the present out-wittedand out-general led President Hill, and, on this war of the American and Canadian railroad kings  hangs a great story. Neither president  Hill nor president Shaughnessy would  be battling for -rights-of-way up here  in the mountains and glens of British  Columbia, but that vast tribute were  to be had from operations in progress  here.  Treaties 3.090 Tout Daily.  The Kettle river drains a region not  only of surpassing loveliness but of  boundless mineral wealth. The north  fork of the Kettle river meets the  parent flood at Granby and there a  smelter is treating 2,000 tons of gold  and copper ore daily.  Twenty-five miles further west  Boundary creek branches off and on  tliat creek are two smelters, the Boundary Falls smelter and the Greenwood  smelter, each treating 700 tons a day  of gold and copper ore.  There are at-present 3,000 tons of  gold and copper ore being treated  daily by the smelters of this country..  Within a year this can be increased to  twenty or thirty thousand tons a  day.  A ton of coke i.s needed for every 8  or 9 tons of ore, that is the only flux  needed with this ore of the Kettle  river country, and that means that in  a little while the railroads will be  handling 25,000 tons of ore daily and  will be hauling daily into this country  3,000 tons of coke. It also means,  hauling to New York 300 tons of copper ever)' day for 365 days in the year.  That is the traffic that president Hil)  and president  Shaughnessy  are  con  and Western railroad to tap it.' He  received a land grant of 600,000 acres  to aid him in building-this railroad but  he had hardly started to build when  the legal warfare in Montana was, begun against him and he had to sell out  to the Canadian Pacific in order to  fight his Montana battles. He still  owns an equal interest with the Cana-  adian Pacific in the land grant. Had  he been unhampered by his enemies  in Montana he would have unquestionably controlled thd vast copper industry of this country!  The hills and mountain slopes of  the Kettle river afford good ranges for  cattle, and the valleys from the Columbia to Okanagan lake, 300 miles  west, will grow every kind of fruit and  grain and vegetable peculiar to any  part of Canada. By extending the  railroad to the west the entire- food  supply for the mining camps can be  procured from the Kettle river country  itself and the adjacent Okanagan valley, but that will, of course, necessitate  the clearing of the virgin forests that  crowd the valleys and the substitution  of farms therefor. That means for  generations to come active mining,  lumbering, farming and manufacturing  industry. It means, moreover, a rich  and prosperous population, inhabiting  a region which I have never seen sur  mountains.  i �������������������� ������������������������'  j World'Wide'Mining. ]  This  Trade  Mark  EvaporateoTCream  Has no equal for richness and purity���Keeps perfectly  in any climate.

Cochrane,  Returning Officer.  The "Slater Shoe" factory lias always paid  the highest wages in Canada, because the class  of men employed- could demand such wages irrespective of Union backing. ':'  Also, the "Slater Shoe" factory has always  been up to Union standards in lighting-, ventilation and sanitary arrangements.       .'  But even these highly favorable conditions  cannot secure from inefficiently organized labor  complete co-operation between employer and ein-  . ployee.  So the "Slater Shoe" makers decided to  make their factory a Union factory in name as  well as in actuality.    .  Henceforward all "Slater Shoes" will bear  the stamp of the Boot and Shoe Workers' Union  with the factory Number 350.  (This number will also identify the shoe  bearing it as the genuine "Slater Shoe," as no  other makers have the right to use it)..  This Union Stamp stands for co-operation of  employer and employee, for mutual good understanding, for immunity from strikes and lock-'  outs, for the principle of arbitration, for a  continuous supply of first-class help, for uniformity of workmanship, for fair conditions all  round. \  Reduces  cost by   increasing   producing  efficiency, by reducing number of spoiled pairs  ' , of shoes, by its greater uniformity of workmanship, by the more   thorough   organization   of  factory.  It makes better shoes.  Don't forget the "Slater Shoe"',factory,  Number 350���three fifty���same as the "Slater"  three fifty shoe.
