TO HELP KGYPT.
London.,June IS,    The Marquis of  Salisbury,in the
house of lords today, replying to Lord Rosebury,
said for a long time he had been of the  opinion
that sooner or later it would be neoessary to
take-steps to reclaim-for Egypt the  territory
lost in 188.3 and 1884. Many reasons counseled
delay,but the government was suddenly confronted
by the fact that Kassala was  threatened.    There
was every probability that its fall would be followed by a frightful catastrophe. The expedition
up the Nile,he continued was ordered 'because, the
government felt that  the interests of Egypt was
threatened. The ooou-

The Miner, announoed that the Crow's Nest Pass
railroad would be begun this year,and we now
repeat It in greater confidence than ever. The
intervening months have seen negotiations for
the immediate oonstruotion of. the road brought
praotioally to a head,  It is more than likely
that 100 miles at least of the road will be built
this year,and the line from Ifecleod to Nelson
will be complete and in operation in 18 months

The conservative party is pledged tn introduce •

the country at the approaohing election there is
an absolute certainty that the road will be built
right away.Should the liberals,however ,triumph it
is not so certain that they would assist the C.P.-

Every res'lde'rit of Southern Kootenay realizes
what Bxi tfifeafen's.e Impetus would be given to the

know that a railroad from the Crow's Nest coal   ■
fields is the one element lacking to put the min-

say East Kootenay) on a solid and permanent basis.
Perhaps they do not know that along the line
of the proposed road in East Kootenay is a district with a showing of'galena ores which equals,

i WTE FOR JOHN. A. MARA, AND THE DISTRIOT.        '
4 i._!i
PROSPECTOR,   FCKT    STEELE   B.C.
SATURDAY   JUNE    20 th,  1698.'
THE  TRUE FACTS.
In a letter received froa Mr John A Mara expressing his regrets at not being able to reaoh Port'
Steele, in oonsenuenoe of del ays, caused by the
low stage of water  in the Columbia,and the necessity of his keeping to Ms engagements at othei
points,he goes on . o say:--
I was particularly anxious to visit Fort
Steele as it is charged against me, that I have
taken no interest in this  section; and my not
reaching there 'this tz'ij: will lend colour to the,
oharge of neglect. My  answer is,  that for the.
last two years I nan  intended making this trip,
but the long and late   sessions at Ottawa have
prevented if,  last year  from the  first of February tbe longest time I spent under my own roof,
with my family, was three weeks. And this year,
I have been at'home altogether only five day's   •
sines the Sra, of January. I will promise that
If returned, I will visit Fort Steele and discuss with the residents  their wants and requirements before I go to Ottawa.
The Government  are pledged to  loan the C.P.R,
Co, '$20,000.  a mile to build the Crow's Nest
Railway at oncei the loan principal and interest
to be repaid in 20 years. You know the advantage
to East Kootenay of this polioy as well as I do,
what it means to every interest,mining,farming'
f.and stock-raising.  It means the building of
' smelters,and developement of mines now lying
idle,it means that not only will the low grade
ores that oant stand shipment be treated on the
ground, but also that companies like the North
Star will treat their ore in the distriot instead of sending it to Amerloan smelters.
Within twelve months you will be as far ahead .
as West Kootenay Is to-day,beoause the Capitalist will not wait for the completion of the railway to purchase and develop mining properties.
Now this is the policy of the Government,they
are pledged to it,and it is for East Kootenay
to say whether they endorse it or not,whether
they would sooner see the railway built within
18 months,or wait for years fco see it built by
a private oompany and with the ordinary subsidy.
This oonneotion will give you a short outlet
to the Ea8t,and direct communications with West
Kootenay, In short it will plaoe you in the same
position as 1 f you were on the main line of
Trans Continental Railway, The advantages are
so great,and within suoh easy reaoh,that I oant
imagine any man in Fort Steele being so blind to
'his own interests as to oppose suoh a polioy.
It may be said that the other side will grant
the same assistance. If they are true to their
party and pledges they will not. No one has more
bitterly opposed railway subsidies than has Sir
Richard Oartwright.and if the Liberals get into
power we khow that he will be not only their
Finance Minister, but the dominant spirit.
You know what the Conservatives will do, You
dont know what the Liberals may do.
Onega.
In commenting on the above letter,we oan only
say:- That it is to the interest of every voter
in the distriot to 3.6k at the position of. the
two parties; one pledged to the best interest
of East Kootenay, the other pledged to nothing,
Take no ohanoes.the interests of this distriot
all lay in the   oonstruotion of this road as* soon
as possible," A bird In the hand is worth two in
the bush*   Take noohanoes,  this is        our opportunity, let us grasp it, and the future prosperity of the distriot is assured.The Government
is with us, let us be with the Government ^nd
true to the   beat Interests of the distriot.

P 0' L I T I  CAL,
John A Mara,
John A Mara, the present member, has been before
the publio for 25 years. During his career , had
he been otherwise than an honourable man,and had
he not possefi\jabilityP he would have ceased to
represent the people of the district of vSiich he
has been so long a members    Mr Mara.,  is a forcible speaker,a thorough parliamentarian ,and while
no man can please eaoh individual of his constituency., he _o.s thoroughly and conscientiously
attended to the duties of his office. Mr Bostocks
friends admit, that he has no special training
or parliamentary knowledge ,and would be as helpless as a, babe in legislative matters,in faot,
a political figure head, neither use-full or
.ornamental. So let us send a man tried and true
and trained by long experience to represent us.
And let him be JOHN. A.MARA.

has been intimately Identified with the progress
and development of the interior of the Provinoe.
He has faithfully served the electors In the
local house,and has occupied therein the position of Speaker. If elected in the present contest" which is now a foregone conclusion" He
will oooupy the position of Deputy Speaker in
the new house. Mr Mara,is a good oitizen, and
his politics all right. He is putting up a good
fight and will win;he is a Canadian,first,last,
and all the tiwe.
Mr Mara,is making a thorough camass of his
oonstituenoy,and he finds, from his friends,"who
are legion" that on the 23rd, that he will head
the polls,with a handsome majority.
Let every lover of his country,and loyal Canadian give a plumper,* for JOHN.A.MARA.on that day.
;; REMEMBER*,", Clear Grit.and Conservative,to
mark your BALLOT for JOHN.A.MARA,who has served
his constituency faithfully for 25 years.
The people of Fort Steele, irrespective   of
