WEDNESDAY.    JUNE   22,  1S0S.  A  GREAT SESSION  This    has    been    a   wonderful  session of Parliament.  It has beeu  spun out to nearly live months, a  length decidedly out of proportion  to the amount of business done.  The session is notable  i'or many  tilings.    It is notable for the fact  that moie money has been voted  to     the    government   than   any  previous government has ever got  or asked for in any one year.   It is  notable  for   the   fact,   that   the  number of  departures  from  the  tender   and  contract  system,   of  private    dealings     with    public  matters, and of attempts to give  away valuable franchises and con-  '   cessions   to  ministerial  favorites  was greater than was ever known  before.     It   is   notable   for   the  number of transactions emitting a  piscatorial odor into   which daylight  has    been   let;   prominent  among which were the Drummond  deal,   the Domville   scandal,   the  bogus    election   prosecutions   in  Manitoba, the Killam scandal, the  investigation commissioners scandal,  the dredging  scandals,   and  tlie  Drolet  scandal."    It  is   particularly notable for the desperate  attempt  the   Government    made  to hand  over  to  a  pair of   pet  contractors    the   cream   of    the  Yukon's great mineral wealth, an  h'ttempt of which Mr. Oliver, M P.,  savs the last has not been  heard.  "The whole region," he writes to  his paper, "is to be held up until  Parliament can be bulldozed into  granting it away to Mackenzie and  Mann."      Notable   also    is    this  session    for   the   frequency  and  facility with   which    ministerial  promises have been broken.   It is  notable   for the   declaration  of  . Jisrael Tarte under oath that he  had deliberately aud intentionally  deceived parliament when he pro  fessed to be giviug a frank statement,   lt is notable for the killing  of   the  West   Kootenny people's  =.=-effort-to-get-r<ailway,competition.  via the Kettle River road aud the  open proof that enisode afforded  that Canadian   politicians  of  all  stripes are mere puppets that will  dance   to   any tune   the railway  magnates choose   to  play.    It is  notable for the way the Auditor  General   was    muzzled    aud  sat  upon    for    his    honest    protests  against- improper   payments   by  ministers.     It  is notable for the  flagrancy with   which   the spoils  system    has    been    upheld   and  grafted into the country's politic-  by the wholo Liberal  party, one  outcropping of the system being  the   resignation    of   a    member  because    of    a     quarrel      with  ministers over patronage, and the  declaration      of       the      Liberal  majority in the House, after the  government had given him what  he  wanted, that his resignation  was   not   a    resignation.      It  is  notable for the spending of 80,000  on a commission to investigate the  wrongs of the Crow's Nest workmen and that neither parliament  nor     the    government,    beyond  letting   off  a    surplus   of   moek  righteous    indignation,   took    no  steps either to repair the wrongs  the men had suffered in the past  or to prevent their repetition in the  future.     Yes, it has been a great  session, a record breaking session  for all that goes to drag Canadian  politics   lower   than   they   were  before.  And it can be but vaguely  hoped that the future may have in  store a leaven of improvement.  A    great   deal    of   discussion,  intelligent   and    otherwise,    has  taken  place   both   locally aud in  eastern papers on the question of  assessment versus old lino insurance.     Not having an  insurance  actuary on its stall', Tin. _Ii_i~aui  does   not   presume    to   condemn  either one system   or tbe other.  To do so would involve us  in a  controversy whicli life is too short  anil busy to justify us in entering.  There are ono or two things, however, that will strike the average  man  who studios insurance even  inj n casual way; and it  may bo  said   here   that    insurance   is   a  question   on   which   tlie   aveni^o  man  takes too much lor granted.  Thanks   to    the   importunity  of  agents a very large proportion of  the   mon   in   this  country   carry  some kind of insurance ou  their  lives.   How many of theso policy  holders understand the lirst principles   of   lite   insurance?     flow  many of them have been attracted  tothecomonny they are in, simply  because it's cheap?   How many ot  them  know   that under   certain  kinds ot policies they are paying  twice or three   times the   actual  cost of insurance?   A good definition of insurance is:   A method of  distributing   an  individual's  loss  among a large number  of  other  persons who are willing to assume  each his small share of it, in return  for the certainty that if a similar  loss falls upon any one of them,  the loser, or those dependent upon  him, will  in  like  manner be   indemnified.    In assessment  insurance a company or society agrees  to insure lives at the actual cost of  providing   for death claims, plus  agents',    officers'   and    other   expenses.   They will contract with  the  insured  to   ptiy  his heirs  a  certain sum at his death iu return  for  his  paying a certain annual  premium,   which    in    nearly  all  eases  they reserve  the  right  to  increase    whenever    they   deem  necessary. The "Mutual Reserve,*'  for iustance, a company that has-  been much   talked   about,   places  this'clause in its contracts:  "5. On the dales named .on the first  page hereof in each year during the  continuance of this policy there shall  be due to the association for premiums,  the amount mentioned on said first  page, or mirli multiple or rutin /hereof]  ax ilsf.rccnlirc committer mnn tlrjer-  m inc.''  Now ifc is exactly this feature of  the assessment system that should  be thoroughly understood. And  it is exactly this feature that is  XOT understood and that is too  often carefully kept in -.the back-  cround by the gentlemanly agent.  That it is kept iu the background  is proved by the amount of vigorous kicking that finds its way into  the press over increases in premiums when the company springs  then on tho uususpectiug policy  holder, who does not understand  that after his insurance has run a  certain number ofyyears itis either  a question of raising rates orwiud-  ing up t.he company. There i= no  redress in such eases. The policyholder must pay the increased premium or drop his was practically the  reply of Finance Minister Fieldine  when a deputation of as-grieved  members of the "Mutual Reserve"  canifl to him for redress. All tbe  comfort he could give them was  that he was in the same boat himself- Tm~ lI]_RAi,n has nothing to  say against assessment insurance  itself. It is all right provided the  people who go in for it clearly understand at the outset that th-ir  A urivate letter i'roin a member  of the London Stock Exchange  says���������"Busiuess in the mining  market hero is very unsettled owing to the war and the prospective wars .elsewhere, but we all  hope the present state of things  will not long continue."  THE LATE REV. H. COCHRANE  There is practically no demand  for wheat siuce Leiter threw his  stock into the market and Ogilvie  commenced selling half a million  bushels at Fort William. Ogilvie's  selling is significant. No doubt he  figures on buying from ..the new  crop at a lower price.  It is somewhat interesting to  the people of this country to learn  thacLomberg, the capital of Guli-  cia, is at present; in a highly disturbed stale owing to tho poorer  peoplo having risen and pillaged  che .'..hops aud attacked the property of the rich laud owners. The  Galiciaus are evidently not so  harmless as they look.  Died At His   Post���������A Loss   Sustained  by the Community  lhe news of the sudden death of  Rev. Henry Uoclirane at Jack Head  will be received with sorrow by many  who knew anil respected him. For  luuny j-ears he was a nissionary of the  Church of England. lie was a graduate, of St. John's College, Winnipeg,  nnd was n born orator. At the t hue  of the rebellion he was vety active  in preventing the Indians over whom  he had great couliol, having thorough  command of several ol their languages,  lrom joining Kiel. Many of lhe settlers in the North West have listened  to Mr. Cochrane in the early days and  will understand the loss to the Indians  in his death. He fell dead whilst administering the Holy Communion to  his congregation at Jack Head.  CHURCH DIRECTORY.  METHODIST CHURCH ��������� Rovelstoko.

JWeCJ-RXf  There is considerable rejoieiug in  England over the collapso of the  Lieter wheat corner - tho news  caused quite, a panic in Liverpool  market. The opinion of Mark  Lane is that steadiuess will rule  the English markets now that  "the plunger who was operating  without regard to market precedence is shaken out." The newspapers expross 'pleasure at the  failure of Leiter's plans. A leading newspaper says: "If the prime  mover in .the war against mankind is boggard by his greed, the  rotributiou ' is well merited; but  nothing can atono for the awful  suffering Leiter and his accomplices have caused."  The convicts of our penitentiaries  have much for which to he thankful.  If thev had not been there the}- might  have been working ou the Crow's Nest  Pass railway.  The late D'Alton McCarthy was insured in four companies for $57,000,  namelv the Canada, Life Insurance  company for $12,000: the Equitable  Life Insurance company for $5,000;  the Travellers' Insurance company of  Hartford, for $5,000, and t.he Life Insurance companv of Scotland for  $...000.  The Regina town council and a  deputation e_f cyclists tell foul of each  other last week over a proposed new  bylaw prohibiting wheels from all  sidewalks, enforcing it speed limit of  eight miles, anil compelling the carrying of lumps from half an hous after  sunset. The wheelmen, who have  been using tho sidewalks as freely as  pedestrians, wanted the prohibition to  apply only to the. main business streets,  and complained that as only a first-  class $5 lamp would stay lighted on  the rough roads of that region the tax  would he an iiisull'crably heavy one.

Macdonald,  when asked if his government intended to do this or used to say some  times that he did not know, he had  not yet read the morning papers.  The Chicago Drover's Journal says:  More and more the conviction grows  that there is a big shortage in cattle,  taking the country oyer. The influx  of Canadian cattle this year has tended to cover the shortage, but it is  steadily showing up more strongly.  Tbe people of Southern Illinois are  suffering from a visitation of the 17  year locust, which is storming the  place to an alarming degree. Fruit  trees hy the hundreds are heing badly  damaged or entirely ruined by the  pest. Dogs and chickens eat the  locusts and many have heen poisoned  by doing so. The fanners are helpless  iind do not know what to do.  The Uegina Leader, uot knowing  anything about the Galicians, bur.  constrained to defend the hand  that holds the spoon that feeds it,  says they are "nn intelligent,  industrious frugal and agricultural  people well calculated to make a  succe-s of life in a farming  country." Intelligent! Calculated  to make a success of life! it is  fortunate for the Leader that it  has no reputation for scrupulous  veracity to keep up.  There is a great opening ,for an  efficient purifier in Canadian  politics. During tho Drummond  County railway investigation Mr..

LONGED  TO  Suddenly I*ft Alons With an Angular Fa-  male Stranger In _ Dark Room He Was  , Threatened With Bodily Harm���������An Em-  barms.tag _*re__lc-_i_ueiit and IU Sequel.  A young Cleveland man claims to hav.  been placed in a very embarrassing predicament roco.itly. He snys ho was calling  on n certain young lndy who resides In a  faslilonablo down town apartment house,  nnd ns she happened to hnve gone out with  her mother, but was expected to return  shortly, ho snid he would wait in their  parlor. Tho servant ushered him in, and  ho was surprised to Unel that another aill-  ������r was also waiting. ���������It was a lady cnlicr,  ��������� tall, somewhat angular porson of questionable age, with white gloves and a very  largo blaok hat.  Ijqft alo'na with this lady, tho young man'  felt a littlo uneasy. J_o lindn't contracted  for a silent teto-n-tete with a lono forualo  in a strange house. For a timo ho sat  Btlffly quiet. Thon, as the silonce grow oppressive, ho arose and busied himself fn-  epocting tho pictures and bric-a-lirac. Ao  ho moved along one sido of the apartment,  keeping at a safe distance from the s trail-  gor in the big hat, ho happened to approach  the electrio button that controlled the light  in tho room. Ho had his eyes glued to a  wntor color hanging on tho wall eloso by,  when, to his amnzomont, tho lights suddenly went out, leaving tho apartment in  total darkness.  Of oourso it was owing to an accident  nt tho power houso, but tho young man  didn't know that and naturally expected  tho lights would immcdintoly flash up  again.  An instant after tho ecllpso set in there  was a Ehnrp gnsp from tho direction of tho'  lady with tho big hat.  "You���������you   did   that a-purposo,"   sho  ���������  shrilly remarked. "I saw you standing by  tho button."  '    Tho young man wiped tho perspiration  from his brow.  "I assuro you, mnelnni," ho said, "that  I had nothing to do with it. It must bo  some���������.some lapse in the current or something."  "You did it," continued tho shrill voice,  "becauso you wanted to kiss me."',  "Xo, no, madam!" criei-tho young man.  "Xo, no! I wouldn't kiss you for tho  world."  Then, in his desiro to oscapo, ho started  for tho supposed location of tho door.  ���������'Don't move," cried the lady, "or I'll  ecrcam." - ''  Ho halted for a moment, then softly  crept along the wall again.  "I hear you," cried tlio lady. ','Don't  you daro to come near me."   ,  "Madam," said tho exasperated youth,  "nobody wants to harm a hair ot your  head."  " That's-jusb what tho burglar said tho  night our house was robbed," moaned tho  . lndy.     .  "But I must find the" door," said the  youth. '-We can't stay in here indefinitely  in tho dark."  "I should think not," snapped tho lady.  "But don't you dn.o to come this way. If  , you do, I'll stab your faco with a hatpin!  And don't you think you can fool luo. I  hear your miserable squeaky shoes every  etcp you take.'"  "Perhaps," said tho youth, for his senso  of humor was beginning to return, "it  would bo woll to tako them off."  "Mercy, no!"'cried the lady. "Don't  you dare to."  Then tho youth felt his way forward,-  guided as to tho laeiy's location by sundry  6niffs nnd starts of alarm, and utter ho had  run squarely into tho inniitol nml banged  ngainst a screen and tumbled over a footstool and soveral chairs, he finally found  the doorknob and bounced into tho hall.  It was pitch dark, but almost immediately  he saw a servant coming up tho stairs with  a lamp. _.  "Show me the way out of this," said the  youth, and tho servant escorted him to the  front door.

ANOTHER SMASH-UP  TOOTHBRUSH AIDS HEALTH.  Sound Teeth  and  lioily Only to  lie Had  by Its l~r cqueut Use.  It is but a little thing, yet; on Its  proper use depends much of tho happiness of modern mau. Why civilized  teeth should bo eo rotten is n question  ���������which has often been debated, and probably tho 'truo answer is more complex  than somo would think. Many good  niothors are content to put all toothache  down to lollipops, but that sugar in Itself is not responsible for bad teeth is  proved by the splendid "ivories" often  possessed by negroes -who practically  live upon the sugar cane and thrive  upon it, too, during the whole of tho  season when iu maturity. Dental^  decay is common enough, however,'  among negroes in towns, and it seems  clear tbat the caries of the teeth which'  is', so common among most civilized  races is due not to any particular article  of diet so much as to digostivo and nu-  tritivo changes imposed upon us by our  mode of lifo and' to somo extent by the  fact that _by hook or crook we do somehow manage to live, notwithstanding  our bad teeth, whereas in a stato of nature tho toothless man soon dies.  Recognizing, then, that until the time  arrives when some great social rof ormer  either mends or ends our presont social  conditions our teeth will  tend  to rot,  and  that,. whatever   the   predisposing  causes, the final act in the production of  caries is the  lodgment  of  microbes on  and around  the  tenth, we seo  that for  long to come  the  toothbrash will be a  necessity if  the  is to bo maintained. It is only by the frequent use of  this little instrument that those minute  accumulations can  be  removed which  are at tho root of so miich niisohief.    A*  few olementary lessons in bacteriology  would, wo fancy, greatly startle many  people and certainly would  show them  tho futility of  trusting  to one scrub a  day.   Tho fact is that if people, instead  of looking  nt  the' toothbrush  (rom an  aesthetic  point of view and  scrubbing  away with  tooth  powders (I)  to make  their front teeth  white, would regard  it merely as au aid to cleanliness, they  would seo that'the time to use it is after meals and  at  night, not just in the  morning .only, when  tho  debris is left  from the'day beforo  bus  beon fermenting and brewing aoid all night through.  Tliey would also- soe how inefficient an  instrument the'common toothbrush  ia  unless it is used with considerable judgment. Ono of the secondary advantages  of spending a good deal of money on  dentistry is that at least one learns tho  value of one's teeth.    By tho time wa  have got  them  dotted  over with  gold  stoppings ������_"i gold  crowns we learn to  take care  of  them, even although that  may jnvolve tho  troublo of- cleaning  them more than  onco a day and  using  perhaps more  than  one" brush for the  purpose.���������Hospital. *  "  _~h������lr Ingenuity In Guttlnc Around _.

Though my  home is near Princoton, I had nover  been in the town beforo and I had no  personal knowledge of tho peoplo who  lived thore. Thero was great silonce at  tho ruilwuy station, unci, though many  persons wero moving about, no ouo uttered a word. 'Is it a town of deaf  mutes?' I said to myself.  "But presently my eyes wero blinded  by many small mirrors, as it scorned to  mo, casting a dozen shadows in my eyes  from tho hands of as many burly negroes. It seemed no matter of fun to  them to cast these shadows. They wero  grimacing, contorting their faces and  twisting their fingers in a manner  stranga to see. 'No deaf mutes, 'but  lunatics,' I said to myself, and I began  to look for somo safo means of exit.  But these dumb, grimacing creatures  were on all sides of tho platform und as  I advanced oue way or tho other thoso  at that point lunged toward me and I  saw I was a prisones.  "It was a frightful'feeling for a few  moments, and then a rational explanation of tho sccno was made. Conquering  my timidity, I weut boldly to oue of  tho biggest of the black men, and, seizing him by tho shoulder, I said, as a  hypnotist might say, 'What do you  mean by casting shadows .in,my eyes?'  Tho mau caught mo by the coat sleeve  and whispered in my ear: 'I'll tell you,  boss, but I has to whispor, 'cause wo  ain't allowed to talk. You has to come  tome. I can't come and git you. Thoy  won't let us stand on tho.platform.'  "Then I found out" that theso silent  men had once been tho vociferative,  shouting hackmen who make themselves  so omnipresent on the platform stations  of most small towns. The good people  of Princeton determined to live in peace  nnd quiet, aud, by "act of the city council, they prohibited the hackmen from  using their voices. Bnt even this did  not abate _tho nuisance. The hackmen  would run up to tho train and' almost  carry away their patrons by force. So  tho city council passed a law forbidding"  them to stand on the platform. Deprived  of -speech and power. of locomotion,  theso hackmen had a happy thought.  I-ach ono bought a bright tin plate and  had the name of his hotel embossed on  the plate in raised letters. So they all  Etand there, waving their tin plates and  never uttering a sound."���������St. Louis  Globe-Democrat.

So she thought it should  have' a name which would distinguish  it from all others. .After a great deal of  thinking'she announced her deoisio'n.  ' "Papa," she said to the happy father,  "I havo thought of a name for the baby.  We will call her Imogen."   '  Papa was a matter of faot man, 'who  knew there was nothing' in tbat baby  different from most others, and he.didn't  wish to see his child saddled with a  name tbat wouldn't iit in with other  circumstances.  "Fancy her marrying a man named  Snooks," ho thought. "Imogen Snooks  will sound'nioe, won't it? But if I say  so she'll begin to., cry and will insist  upon it."  After a littlo reflection he thought of  a plan.  "I think that's a lovely name, my  dearl" ho cried. "It was my first sweetheart's.' Sho will take it as a' compliment, and it will always remind me.  Yes, that and your dear mother's name,  Mary, are the best I know."  "I think, papa," she said after a  pause, "wo had better call her" Mary,  after my mother."  And the artful man chuckled to himself.���������Strand Magazine. '  __,.  A Conspicuous Precedent.  "Shiftless as ever, Thomas?" said the'  wealthy uncle.

American girls are foud of pearls and  havo no superstitions fears that thoy  moan "tears." It may not be known to  the possessors of these gems that pearls  aro regarded as "well" or "ill" from-a  jeweler's point "of view. '.-.'Like human  beings, they require fresh air to be kept  alivo. ��������� In other words, tliey must be  worn aud not remain loo long iu a closed case. Judges of pearls can tell by  looking at them whether the gem is  "lucido" (clear and healthy), or whether it is beginning to be au invalid. Experts talk of pearls "dying," they sometimes becoming discolored' and turning  black.  A black,,pearl may be a handsome  stone, but it has not tha evanescent  rainbow suggestions to bo seen in a  milky or rosy pearl. Italian women,  who know a great deal about pearls,  wear their necklaces and "ropos" constantly. This gives Iheni tho light and  -air-required-by-the-myEterious-forma���������  tions, and yet they aro not exposed to  the chances of discoloration by being  touched with acid.  It is easier to keep pearlB in fair condition when they aro . set in a lacepin  or in necklaces. ��������� It"' is hard ;to car"o for  them in a finger ring.' 0_e'_ni__tb'e'care-  ful to removo them-not only jn,washing  tbo hands, but" they should never' bo  worn when there is likelihood of being  touched by food or drink.      ��������� *���������  About a month ago the owner of a  beautiful pink pearl worn. in a finger  I ring was alarmed to find the stone was  darkening and becoming tfeovered'with  an opaque dark crust. She took it to her  jeweler, who pronounced it a caso of  "scale." He told her tho delicate substance had been in contact with somo  acid, and as she insisted this had not  happened he reminded her that a drop  of lomonade would be sufficient to do  the mischief. ' She' then remembered  drinking lemonade while the ring was  on her ungloved hand.  The only remedy for scale is a removal of a1 whole layer of the pearl. This is  an excessively delicate* business, which  should be done by an .expert workman;  and never undertaken by apprentice  hands. It is a costly business and reduces tbe size and value of the pearl  j that must undergo the operation.���������Philadelphia Record.  Antwerp Belli.

That its unique position  where the C, P. It. crosses the beautiful Columbia valley, with water transportation co the north and south and in close proximity to the richest mines  in Kootenay, making its location unusually favorable. If you want to invest  your money in manufactories, real estate, or mining propertv, visit  Kevelstoke, the "Gateway lo the Kootenay."  We are moving to the front and* no obstacle will or can impede our  wonderful progress. Do not forget that, you will never buy real estate as  cheap as you can buy it today. Figure the increase of the past and speculate  in Revelstoke, the "Gateway to the Kootenay."  The banks of the Columbia, on which river the town is situated, have,  been the singe upon which strange scenes have been displaved and wild and  dating exploits performed by lhe thousands who entered tliis district during  Lhe '07 gold boom in Lhe Big liend.  Revelstoke is probably one of the oldest towns in the interior. And it  was not until this title question was settled that Revelstoke really began to  forge ahead, commercially and otherwise. Growth was slow until 1807, but  the old timers and newcomers had great confidence in the town and smarted in  to make it a mining centre worthy of note. "  The C. P. It. is concentrating all its principal wotkshops on the  western division at Revelstoke. Revelstoke is not only a mining town, but is -  now and will he increasingly so .in the future a railway point of considerable  importance in the C. P. R. system and a distributing centre for the business of  Lhe rich mining districts included m the section popularly known as North  Kootenay. ILs unpot.ance in these connections is due to its unique geographical position. Seated in a beautiful open valley at the point of intersection  of the Columbia river and the C. P. R. main line, it commands the passes  running north and south, to the famous gold fields of the Big Bend and the  rich mineral leads of Lhe Lardeau, while on the east up the Illecillewaet  another district of great prospect is being opened up. The town is the point  of junction of the main line and the Arrowhead branch of'the C. P. II., bv  which access is gained to the South Kootenay by rail aud steamer. Another  line of steamers will make Revelstoke their starting point for the Big Bend,  for which country it is at present the sole outfitting point and base of supplies."  Thus hy the mere force of geographical position alone Revelstoke has forged" '  to the front until the little mining camp of a few years ago has become a town  of considerable importance to the business of the province.  The mining industry is still in its infancy, but with the careful expenditure of capital in development work will grow to large dimensions.  Large ateas of land in close proximity to the town are covered with  timber suitable for lumber, but probably just as valuable as fire wood, there  being no coal deposits discovered near at liand as vet. This land when cleared'  is proving to be exceptionally fine farming and gardening land, and , the  demand for produce is always, many times larger than the supply, train'loads <  being imported from other points everv season. This should be taken into  consideration by intending settlers.  .  '     Across the river from Revelstoke an excellent elav exists for the making of brick in' vast quantities, wliich commands a high price at anv time.     -  The town enjoys many advantages: A' fine,, healthy climate���������the  death rate heing exceedingly low���������good water,; a system of waterworks, from the mountain side just north of the town,"underlying which is a  stratum of gravel that ensures a natural drainage. A short distance up the C.  P. R. track, east, to the Illecillewaet river, is a canyon and falls, which must  be seen to he fully appreciated. The power from these feills is now beiug utili.  zed by ahe Revelstoke Welter, Light & Power Co. for running their fine electric lighting plant. They have an unlimited power which later on will be  useful for manufacturing purposes and running the proposed streetcar line.  if  il  -.  -S .  ''T-I  .'.

Rllt:���������One point Ihnl nii^hl be ttivn  in favor of taxing miners i.s, lhat. the  openimr up of Ihe Koolenay enni.try  by trails, roads and vnilw.-ij-s, is de-  peni'e-.t Iii :i jrreat exlenl, on the  i-i'veiii-.i: derived from the taxation of  miners.  .Should ibis source of revr-nue be cut  olf, the crnvi'i-nini'iit. would necessarily  have to fall back upon other means of  openimr up I he country or cl'i' throw  the work nn the .shoulders of the pros-  pe-lnr and lbe miner.  Foi'inslaiu-e. we will suppo.-e tbat  lhis som-ce of revenue is cut, cilT. and  Ih.-il. the fiiiverniuenr still desires lo  maintain ils present policy with regards to improvements in this country.  The result miirhl. be that in order In  expect, llie .-aiiiu improvement,.*! with  lhe curtailed revenue at its cnniinand.  thi'jiovernment \*. mild necess-u-ily Iimn e  lopayli*<i- wa-jfi's tn llie labiii-ers tu  at eoinplish the same amount of  work.   ��������� ,  If lhe present scale ol' wanes was  paid, fcwi'i- men would lie employed  and fewer iii-proveiiienls neeessarily  ii inde.  If as many iniprovi'ini'ii's ai-c made  with Ihi- diminished revenue this revi-  iiii0 niii.-t, necessarily be sti etched in  oilier to pay the requisite number of  l.-ihoreis iMiir.-ijii'd in makiiis; these  iiiiprnvi'inenls. so thai -in older to  effect these improvements with ono-  hall' in- Iwn-thhd.: of the revenue now  used for that purpose, the laborer will  be compelled tu accept or.e-balf or  t wn-thiids nf thi* wanes now paid for  iu.-il~iti_~ these improvements.  If the taxation on mineis is stricken  oil'befoie this country is thorouglily  ini**ned uji and a low scale of w.i ares introduced by I he government, it will be  but a very short time until every min-  inpf companv nnd i oipni'iit'on in Bril-  ish (Joluuilii.i will rei'.iu'i* tbe wacres of  their, employees, as .it .is haiilly lo be  supposed that municipal c oi-poriilion*.  anil mining cnmpuiies will pay a  hiilher scale of wages than thegnv'ern-  nieiit.

C"~~~p_  Revelstoke Riding, West Kootenay Electoral District  Gi,:xti.hmic> :  In eomiiiK forwaril .���������ittheiinniiiiiious  ile.siru of thu supporters of the irovern-  iiient in tliis riilhif? to_ solicit your  sulTiMgL'S us ii eaiiiliibit.e in tin* luininiv elections, I wish to place  before yon in strsiifrhtforwai .1 terms  the lilies .-ilonir wbii-h I intend to  direct, my (-ourse."if elected to lepresent  you in lbe Legislature. I am to lie-in  with an advecacy of lhe iteneriil policy  of lhe Turner >roveriiiiii'iil.. as I con-  sider thnt their policy is practical anil  progressive ~n>'-* directed towards the  hest interests of lln* country.' The  development of the maj<_lilii'ent resources of this province iniiht be lhe  chief nil ii of Ilm irovermiient of the  province, and it is the chief plank in  my platform. As Kootenay is the  wealthiest and most pi-ndui live district in tliis province, it is to my mind  HUSlXESS for the Koveriiiiient to push  forward its development in every  possible way. The money expended  will be returned over and over afrain.  and in nailing the motlo of Kootenay  riRST lo my political masthead. I  do so not merely from a narrow local  patriotism, but as consideriiiR from  very broadest point of view possible of  thc'welfaie- of-the whole of British  Columbia, that the development of  Kootenav is the very best policy from  a business and practical point of view-  that any government can entel-tain.  This object I shall, If elected, pursue  in season anel cut of season, and any  measure which I consider, after Erath-  crinj? the opinion of niy constituents,  lo be of advantnue and benefit to  Kootenay iu eeneral and this riding in  particular, will receive my heartiest  support no matter from wliat quartern'which side of the house it emanates.  - The interest? of the riding nve n.1-  taost exclusively mining.    Tbe back  bone of the mining industry is the clans  who do the work, lhe prospectors and  miner.*.'.    In considering mining  legislation of any  kind, it is to them that I  shall turn   for advice.     If legislation,  injuies them it must be detrimental to  the best interests of  the  district, and i  will Hnd me against it.    If it is satis- J  fa.-li.ry only to them   it  will  be satis- "  factory to me and receive my support-.  There are other classes nf working-  men in this constitiiency. chiefly  railway men and those engased in the  lumbering industry. These men,  whether nrganized in unions or employed in occupations which*have not  so far enjoyed" the benefits of the  trades union movement, will find 'iiie-  their friend and the consistent sup-  porl er of legislation aiming to improve  their prospects and condition in this  province.  I do not see lhat there is' any need  further to define my platform here. I  am before you, as I have ah eady said,  a.s a supporter of the general principles  and policy of the government. I hope  to have lbe opportunity to discuss the  de'.-iils of that policy before you on u  public plalfortn, nnd also to make it  personal canvass at sill points in the  riding which it is jiossible lo reach in  Ihe time at uiy clispos.-.l, at no distant  date, which will give me opportunities  to explain niy position more at lensth  than is possible in an address of this  nature.  I would respectfully ask you. therefore, not to make any pledge until you  have heard both sides uf the question,  and iu order to uffoul the best possible opportunity for ymi to do so, I  hereby invite my opponent to meet  me at all meetings which will hereafter be ar ranged for nie to address.  Your ObedientServant,  W. WHITE,
