I'Vjr some  reason the Windermere 'district,  is attracting more eapilal and is  generously being exploited more  assiduously than anv other section of Easl. Kooleuay.

UJhe mines arc all easy oi  access, scarcely oils whicli cannot be reached wiih a few hoars  travel from Fort Steele. The.  future of the district is assured,  bu'i 1hc present is what ih'e min  er and prospector are looking  after. Some organized effort  should be made lo udverliso the  various resources ul theeounlry,  wiih facts and iignres. something  which attract the investor; and  no lime should be KjsI in doing  this, and there is no time like  the present.

Lord Charles Boresford has  iiiiuiz(,'d Ihe world by the briiliaul  strategy- bv which he won the  sham battle in llie recent' ma-  uoeuvers of ihe I'ritKh Heel in  the Mediterranean. Ifis tactics  have bdoii pronounced the  cleverest in naval annals. The  Heel w;is divided into two parts.  Merpsford iu command of one  and Admiral Kisher of llie oilier.  HeresLord was blockaded   m   the  u  ,port oJ .Vlyiiloue -by , torpedo  boats and Wisher's ll,eet was  hovering about and iynig in wait  outside.  'Hercsford's task' was lo coal  his lleet, ��.'ol' out of Iho harbor  and nMack P'isher. I' sl'iould.be  remembered that Tjord Charles  has never been an enthusiast- cm'  the subject of lqrpod,p boats,  he ha-, repeatedly' decried, iis  ehicieucy as an 'oll'ensive craft,  ll is only-a Jew years ago that,  speaking in llie House of'Coin-  mons on a naval appropriation  bill.'he asked llie admiralty to  furnish an old warship, armed  and under his directions, of  which ho would lake command  with a volmileer crew raised by  himsoll and defend il successfully agains! the attacks of any  number of torpedo boats.  ''  His task- ai'Mytilene was therefore, precisely to his liking. 13v  pulling lights on launches so as  to.resemble ships in the darkness  he decoyed the torpedo boats  away on a laise'^trail and. wiih  every light on his own warships  out. lie slipped away ��� to sea  wilhoiit. a. vessel./ouch'ed. Having (lo.no this, he misled' P^sffer's  scouts by ia Ise signals and  caught the hostile licet entirely  unprepared oil IheLoinnos.  P'ishor'fe squadron was steering  in parallel c'olumns and l.-ieres-  ford manoeuvered his ships so  skillfully lhat the admiral had  no opportunity to change, his  formation' or to do anything' but  clear deck's for instant'action.  Meresford ran his ships in  single tile right in between tho  lines enabling him to light with,  both broadsides, while each of  Fisher's vessels could use but  one  Thi' victory was -so .complete  and' overwhelming ���that tho  umpire awarded il on the spot  to the dashing hero ol the Alexandria bombardment who ran  lhe Cordor iu right under the  guns 'of the Egyptian fort and  battered il lo aloms at close  range.  licrosford's daring seamanship  and resourceful tricks in those  manoeuvres are a startling con-  Irast lo the old methods, and  stamp him its the cleverest commander in the British navy.  even dhal.

As is generally known, American presidents arc not elected  directly by popular vote, 'but by  "electors" chosen by lhe various  states, ' who meet in what is  known as lhe electoral college  and cast their ballots a.s directed  by the parly that chose them.  There are -1-17 electoral, votes  this, year, of which 224 are  necessary to elect. Of Ihese 102  are practically conceded for'McKinley, and ' NN for Byron?  There are 70 more lhat are expected to go for McKinley. aud  07 that are expected 'to go .for  Bryan All of these 137 however, are more or less doubtful  and. of course, hold the balance  of power. The crux of lhe  election will be" Now York, with  its 30 voles, which seems to be  absolutely essential to Democratic success, although McKinley could lose it and yet be elected. At the last Presidental  election, it gave the enormous  majority of L'Uti.OOu for McKinley  but'ihis was cut down to 1^,000  at the bye election in I Mis* and  the Democrats have hopes of  winning there this year. Tho  betting on the general result  favors ihe Republicans, as much  as five lo one being offered and  refused.

Though there is not much  ' starting'news in the weekly bud-,  get of news received this' week.  ���   there  is  one feature lhat seems  at present to -be animating- the  ',, writers of newspapers, through-  "out the  length  and   breadth of  Canada, and that is a spirit of  ���    buoyancy   and   hopefulness, for  the future. Tt means that times  . are going to   improve, and  next  - year .will .be  a prosperous yea?-,  I in Caiiada under a Conservative  government.   '  -X- '     X   '    w '  r  And there  is  another  feature  ',   in the papers thai is pleasant for  'the people of   British   Columbia  - to contemiJliite. and that is that  the eyes of the whole Dominion  is turned towards the. Pacific  Province. , ,      i  '���    *    *,  ,   It is proverbial  that   the  evil  men   do   live   after them.    Tt is  - particularly true of life evils  . wrought by bad governments.  .   ���The present  Dominion govern-  ���ment, that is lo be.'slaughtered  <- in November, and may  then   be  said  to  be  extinct,   but (lie cx-  -travagance and evil '.that  it  lias  done  will by'no means die,with  it:  *    �����   *.-  - ' The^successqrs to the bad rog-  ��� i ime. that' has' boon maintained  ���'   during,the. past 'four years,  will  have their chief work in 'removing   the'effects   of ,the wrongs  that have been comniillod in  the  .   past.  In   Ihis   Province .during the  '    past  few years a new electorate  .   has arisen,   und  we believe the  sentiments   that   actuate   it  are  , sound, healthy and progressive.  .Holiest government is wanted,  ���honesty, with us much ability  as can be obtained.

' The total number of voters on  the list-for Yale-Koofenay-Cari-  .boo i.s something over IS,000.

Tarlo's goose  will  bo  conked  ' oh November' 7lh.  It is reported that.Air. Chris  Fbley, the' Labor candidate for  this constituency, will visit East  Kootenay some time during,the  week.
