A.   foi*  tho Pernio' district will   bo���all  ,admit that Mr. Smith is  a,  good  honest  man,   but  ho  is not tho  man   to-represent   an ithporlant  district in the house���-on account  of  liis   inability   to point to any  service  that lie has rendered to  bis    constituency    during    the  three years he has been a   member;    ���  Tlie people of .Pernio require  a member whose interests lie in  ,t.lio district and who is familiar  with its needs. A man who is  free from the dictation of any  corporation and who has a free  hand in every sense of the'word:  On the 3rd of October, the electors of the riding', will relegate  Smith   to   tliat   obscurity    from  , i i  t i i t '  which 'he  accident ly arose with  no uncertain voice.  FEUN1E  POLITICS.  A   man    cannot    servo-.   1-;vo  masters in the local   house.   ' E.  ,C. Smith is Ihe Coal   Company's  candidate, and will   not.  receive  the support of miners.  A house that is divided must  fall. E. C. Smith cannot serve  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, and tho interests of the  miners at the same time in the  local house.  W. R.

Gill, secretary,  wherein the inference is given  that members of the 13. of L. E.  are opposed to Mr. .Caven.  We the undersigned Locomo;  Live Engineers at Craiibrook  lake'exception to the article, as  if is misleading and unauthorized  by the 13. of L.E. as a body. It.  is well known'thaf labor organizations; or unions; especially,  the 13. of L.E. as an order, or  union, do not, take any part.'.in  politics. Mr. Gill's article is  not iii error when he says that  the1 13. of L.E. as a body, has  taken,no part whatever in party  politics or given.any promise to  support Mr. Caven as a.body.  Mr. Gill was simply overzoalous  in the interests of the candidate  he favors, but we, Locomotive  Engineers at Craiibrook? as individuals believe that Mr. Caven  will best represent our interests,  as he is a member,, of organized  'labor, and in case of his election,  would safely guard their interests ih the Legislature, therefore, wo bespeak for htm your  earnest support and vote.  ���Walter Edwards, 13.

Charles Wilson's address  l.ervening.7    This is a new phase  of Britain's great crisis.      *���  There is, indeed, no  doubt but that a largo amount of  gold was washed from the , river  bed; that it was very coarse and  of good quality, and that pay-  dirt was confined to a. very limited stretch of tho river on either  side of the bridge, that is.losay,  just above and below the canyon  Bull   river  is  at   all  good   sized   stream,  broad, until it enters the canyon  where  it  is  confined to a width  not exceeding thirty feet by perpendicular walls of quartziteand  slates.    Through this gorge,   in  a  distance  of  a   mile, the river  drops two or three hundred feel,  in   a    succession   of   falls   and  rapids.,    Above  the  bridge the  rocky banks arc only a few   feet  above  the level,   of   the'water.  Here   the   river   rushes   along,  lashed into foam,  as   two .-sharp  right angled   turns  obstruct its  passage.,.'    Straightening   itself  oil   its  course   if  makes  a   wild  dash at the bridge as  though, to  sweep itaway, but when   within  a distance of twenty feci, if drops  suddenly  out  of   sight   over   a  sheer fall of HO foot,  sending   up  a cloud of spray in which hung a  .most.beautiful rainbow, seeming  to act as tin' ai;ch for the  narrow  bridge    spanning     tlie   canyon.  Below, ihe river'plunges on   for  some  fhr.ee-quarl.ors  of  a, mile  between walls of ever increasing  height.till;, finally flic gorge  1200  foot in depth, .vol   scarcely  one-  half that distance   in   its   upper  width.      Suddenly    the   canyon  widens into a, valley with sloping  sides wooded to the water's edge  through which the river now  peacefully winds, scarcely recognizable as tho in ad torrent ir.et  with but a few yards further up.  The canyon of Bull river, with  the unbroken forrost to the,very  edge of its perpendicular' cliffs,  form the most beautiful bits of  scenery in'Southeast Kootenay,  ���and it,is appropriate that, nature  should- have set it in its golden  frame.'  Where the gold came from-  that lay immediately above and  bolow the'canyon, is still an unsolved mystery. "Pay'" extends  but'a short distance above and  below the"canyon1, '"various attempts have been made in later  years to work these placers, but  without any decided success.  Almost every year considerable  quantities of gold is taken out  by miners who by tho const.ruction of wing-dams are enabled to  work a portioivof the river bank  and their efforts have always  boon rewarded by a sullicicnt  amount of gold, though their  wing-dams and drifts are destroyed every year by the high  water that comes every spring.  Among the old lime prospec-  lors who have worked on Bull  river M.t Phillipps, Thomas  Kelly and Mr. Woods wore tho  first. In later years Joseph  Burgeas and George Geary are  said to have taken out 810,000  during a single winter. John  W. Ridgeway, George Munro  and Charles Clement also worked the Bull river placers with  varied success. A large number  of prospectors every year during  low water have secured considerable gold, but owing to tlie  rapid water and insullicieht capital their efforts have not met  with any decided success. Yet  the fact remains, in the opinion  of all old. time placer miners  that the time is not far distant  when Bull river will be compelled to yield up its treasure to  modern hydraulic mining backed  up   by   sufficient  capital to turn  loss than 10,000 minetys inche:  at its lowest stage, and will develop about 0.000 horse power.  In the near future when this immense power is harnessed, and  transmitting power io,the .mines  a.'nd towns in Iho Kootenay  valley there will be a large town  and many permanent industries  localod'ai 'Bull river.  The largest body of hematite  iron in Southeast Kootenay on  which some A/> locations have  been made are located on tho  mountain overlooking 'the Bull  river placer mines.  The Kootenay Central Railway  when constructed will cross Bull  river at the pack bridge.  COM)   UIVIOR  MINING    COMPANY.

With tho  opening of spring the new order  of things will have fairly begun,  and by mid-summer, unless all  signs fail, the Porr Steele mining  district will be bounding along  with a rapidity of progress such  as tho district has never previously experienced before.
