PARTY LIKE POLITICS  The    Local   Legislature  to  be   Divided  Hereafter by Dominion Parties  The Liberal-Conservative convention  at Vancouver wns brnuglil to ii, successful issue Friday hy the organ iza-  tion of a strong jmil thoroughly representative union for British Columbia  with officers directly representing  each electorate in the province. There;  wiis ii thorough agreement amongst  (lie delegates. Uie discussion upon  each of the many subject... covered Iiy  t.he [resolutions adopted being continued until, by lhc interchange ' of  views, ;i peiTecf.ly iiiiiiniiuotis conclusion was iU'rivod at, in every ease.  There was not a discordant note, and  ,i consensus of opinion that, thus  uniled, the Ijilioi'iil-Consui'vativcs can  redeem this province nt. the first  opportunity presented, find mako it.  unco more solid in the support of the  political party to the . tatusiiianship of  whose leaders is due th'e very existence of many of lho most flourishing  communities oE British Columbia of  today.  Tho discussion of the resolutions  brought out the debating talent of the  clrleg-iles, who. inciilcnlHily in their  addresses in explanation and support  of the resolutions presented nu unanswerable indictment of tho Liinrier-  T.-u.e .administration. The Liberal  leaders, it Wits shown, had nothing  lint honeyed.words for British Columbia when soliciting power,' but .since  (.heir accession I o officii, have treated  l.his province with the most" studied  neglect.  ' Turning from Dominion to Provincial affair. ,'the convention adopted n  line of action'which., will at the next  general elections for the legislature,  whenever lit'lei, divide the parties on  Dominion political issues, anel in tliis  council-lion it was left lo the executive  of lho union to draft a platform  especially applicable' to provincial  affairs', which will be duty presented  'to tho public lie-fore _iie'.~uiiioh', asl n  body,'asks to have entrusted to the  party which il represents the control  of provincial .-.Tail's.      - -   ���������-   .  Several important resolutions were  adopted hearing on Dominion affairs,  and then the i.eleg-ili's turned Iheir  attention-Ill provincial mailers with  lhe result that the following resolution was put and unanimously carried:  " Moved by Charles Nelson, Q C.  seconded by. lion. 13. Dewdney, Hint  in the opinion of the convention il is  desirable that the Liberiil-Conserrii-  tivo parly should, as a party, dike  part, in the provincial elections fur the  purpose of ensuring the government  and-legislation of this.province.on  Liberal-Conservative principle';. ;'iid  in order to carry this into effect iit the  next general election for the province  thill such candidates be invited lo  stand for such consl-iluencies iis are  likely to return Libi'ml-Conservative  members pleefgeil primarily to support a Liberal-CoiiKCrviilivc government a.s distinguished from a government comprised of Libi'Mils, or- partly  of r_ib_r..!-Ciiii.servatives and partly of  Jjihui-.-ilii,"1 and that" a platform or  . t.-tpmcnt'iif principles applicable to  local politics iie drawn up."  The convention lhen proceeded with  the choice of the elective ollicers ol'the  union as follows: Honorary President, Sir Charles Tupper, Bail.;  President, Dr. I). II. Wilson, Vancouver; Viri-1'rcsideiils (ono from  each Dominion electoral district).  Nanaiiiio. A. McCregor; Victoria. D.  it. Iver; Vancouver, C. Wilson, Q.C.;  Y7ul_-C.irihcui and Koolenny, Jt. F.

This concluded lhe business of the convention  which adjourned at 0.30 p.m. ((  In the evening a public meeting was  held in tho -Inrket Hall, when rousing  addresses were delivered by Sir Chns.

Q.C, relumed from  the Big Bend on Thursday afternoon  ifler a nine clays trip, during which be  visited the Ophir placer claim em  McCulloch creek, which Mr. 0. 15.  Wood. oi'B.inwoll, Somerset, England,  md himself have purchased and intend working in the near future. Mr.  While also visited Giound Hog Basin,  where considerable assessmenl. work is  being done on the rich gold propositions lliere. He also visited French  crut k nnd was amazed at tho rapid  progress being made by the French  Creek lMiiiir.g'Co. in developing their  rich bench claims, Gold Hill iind  otheis on that creek by .hydraulic  power. During Mr. While's visit  lliere the company lmd .i"sl installed  i innmnicith hydraulic! derrick which  is capable of removing boulders weighing five tons, iind which muter the  able superinlenilance oT Mr. Skenf,  the company's hydraulic engineer,  is working liko clockwork. Mr. Keti-  uon. one of the directors of the company, (to whom Mr. While is much  indebted for thes many courtesies and  openhnneled hospitality extended to  him - during his visit) shewed him  over the~*excplle:il plant installed,  including two and a half miles of flume,  tind pipe line, two giants capable of  throwing an S-inch stream over 000  feet and a sawmill run by w-iterpower  with cutting capacity of "18,000 feet  per diem, which is the most complete  of its kind in the province. The company are now erecting large and commodious buildings for storerooms and  houses for the workmen unci stalf  which'will bn completed" this r������H.  What strikes or.o as most'surprising  in inspecting this plant, is that ir, hns  all been done since tho 1st of August  of litst year. ft is confidently expected that the season's wash up will  be the. surprise of the year in British  Columbia nnel will create such a  booth in placer mining in the Bipr  Bend as lias never been seen in ,the  province .during ils palmiest fhrys. .  A survey "party is -at ��������� work on the  Ophir, preparatory lo installing a  hycliiiulie plant next, spring, ami levels  and elevations are being taken of this  and the Last Chance and Gertie  placer claims adjoining..' It is Mr.  While's intention !o build a dam and  put in nbout 200 feet of bedrock flume  almost immediately before lhe snowfalls so as to be ready to alt.-ich a pipe  line lf>00 feet in, lensth in the early  spring .ind thus be able to start washing by May.  Mr. While also visited the. Conseila-  linn. where Mr. Sweeney reports the  work progressing most satisfactorily.  Many black and silver tip bear  were  ieim on'tlitri7'ijraiiil~"ciu_l.o5_arc sniel  to be plentiful.  Gus. Hed-strom shot a fine silver tip  anil Dan Mcintosh an excellent specimen of cariboo, both of which'helped  to vary the pork and beans bill of f.ire  .ind were most toothsome.  0. O. Craves, of Vancouver, accompanied Mr. "White on his trip.  Revelstoke Company B. C. Rifles.  The regular drills of the llevelstoke  Company B. C. Itilles will be suspended from date, until such lime as the  matter of seeming a drill hall is  set Lied, at which time the uniforms  ami accoutrements will have anived.  Member* of the rifle company can  have their measurements for uiiitoriiis  tsiken .during the next two weeks at  Messrs. Jaincs Gill & Co.'s store, Tay-  I lor block.  Still Another Happy Wedding  Uobert Murray Home, of C.B. Hume  to Co.,of this city, was married Moiul.iy  evening to Miss Annie. D. Hopgooel, at  llie residttucc of the popular 0. P.  lt. Coniliictor'Hnpgood, on Mackcii/ii'  Avenue, in tlii-j city. The ceremony was performed by Hev. S. .1.  Thompson in llie presence of the immediate relatives of thu contracting  parties. Mr. C. II. Hume; supported  his brother through the onlenl, ami  Miss .Helen 1'iiiin acted ns bridesmaid. The bride was" beautifully  attired in fawn trimmed wUh moire  silk with pearl passenieniiiric, and  curried a beautiful houi-iicl of flowers.  The bridesmaid was dressed in a gown  of mauve cashmere. After the ceremony of marriage was duly solemnized another interesting ceremony  look place, being the baptism of the  infant daughter, Maud Ts-ibcl, of Mr.  and Mrs. .T. Hopgoo.l. After these  ceicmonies were, ovor tlie party sat  cloivn to a sumptuous repast. The  briilescake stood in the place of honor,  beautiful and stately in its white sugar  trimming. After full justice had been  clonelo the supper, the congratulations of the frieiiclc present were  voiced in a happy speech by Tie v. S. .J.  Thompson, which was replied to by  Mr. Hume in a brief speech. The  party then adjourned to (he beautifully ftirnisheil home of the newly  ninnied couple, where shortly- after  there was given lliein a send oil in the  shape of a-western chivirari. The  Hkkald has an idea that this kind of  public entertainment should be succeeded by something more in accord  wilh polite society.  LABOR DAY BUT NO PARAD  Trout Lake and Ferguson vs. Rcvelstokp.  Results in Even Honors.  Labor day in Revelstoke passed oil"  comparatively well after all. considering the fact thai (he committee ap  pointed some lime ago had no!, even  prepared a programme.

Another fifteen minutes was  added, [which was fast, furious and  dusty, but still "no laurels were won.  There was no combination playing  clone on either side.

Jackson took place, on Front  Street, resulting in a victory for the  former by about three yards.  Eddy Edwards, as usual,' corralled  everything in the bike race, Frank  Brown, a promising youngrider. making a good second. The distance was  by far too long on such' a rough and  -randy road.

A SERIGUS RAILWAY ACCIDENT  Fourteen Killed and  Twenty Wounded  ���������Other Telegraph News  Cornwall, Out., Sept. 7.���������Fourteen  men were killed yesterday and twenty  injured by the fall of two spans of a  bridge on New York and Ottawa Ry.  The accident centred around the pier  near the .south or United States shoie.  Nobody knov.s how the accident; occurred. The workmen suddenly felt  the bridge give away and weie instantly thrown into the water and  caught       in        the       wreck and  crushed. Thepiersanil masonry work  here were built by Scgsmilh of New  Voik and were practically completed.  Some blame the accident on the company, but another theory is that the  water uneleimineel the pier. The  men killed were hoir'.bly crushed anel  mutilated.

The body'."'  was found by the party without much'  ditlicully ..and   presented .a^ycry  re-'  pulsive sight.   The water and weather  had clone their woik and the body was.  badly,decomposed.   The flesh  was al_y  torn from both anus,   while  the  only  clothing that remained were an under-* ���������  -shirt, a pair of pant*, and a pair of new"  shoes.   The only articles on  the  body*  in good order were the shoes,  which"  were evidently a new  pair.

The Conservative Party  ���������'���������Nothing' is to be gained," says the  Winnipeg echo o������ the Globe, "by ig-  iioring tne recuperative power of a  great party." Whicli is one o������ the  lew grams of wisdom the Free Press  iias let T~~.ll ro a hungry public siuce  the new editor took the head of the  table. The Conservative party fell  deep into the soup two years ago,  through the neglect and corruption of  incompetent leaders, but It will not  remain so for ever. Liberal-Con-  Bervatlve principles are as Bound as  they ever were, aud Liberal-Conservatives are as numerous anil as  staunch as ln the palmiest clays of the  party. But an army Is helpless without trusted leaders and the Conservative party will have to remain In a  semi-dormant condition until lt tluels  leaders who can be depended upon to  lead it to honorable victory. Until  that day comes we prefer to sec Conservatives fulfilling the useful and  healthy occupation df watch dogs or.  the opposition benches. Under the  present conditions ot parties they can  do as much, and probably more.  Good for the country on Mr. Speaker's  left than they could on his right.  WEDDING GARMENTS.  A PANEL AFT_R TURNEH.

A correspondent in yesterday's issue  found fault with The Herald for introducing party prejudices into the  plebiscite campaign. As a matter of  fact The Herald did nothing of the  kind. Party politics have nothing to  do with the matter. What The Herald  said and what, it still believes, is that  no matter what majority is rolled up  for prohibition���������and we believe there  will be a fairly large majority���������Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's government will, not  Introduce a prohibition bill. We do  not make this statement to prejudice  the Laurier government, because we  say with equal - confidence that there  wcrald be no better prospects for the  passing of a prohibitory measure if  the Consarvatives were in office. When  confronted with a popular majority  for prohibition Sir Wilfrid will simply  shelve the question in the most suave  and convenient way, and his easiest  plan will probably be that of appealing to the Imperial government to  amend the British North America  Act by empowering the provinces to  deal with prohibition as they each see  nt.  Prohibition has for years been a  football which has been kicked by the  provincial governments to the federal  authorities and back again. That  Kuod Christian statesman Sir Oliver  Mowat some years ago, after repeated  stand-offs, took a popular vote on prohibition ln Ontario, and the temper-,  ance people peeled off their coats in  jjood faith anel rolled up 192..97 votes  for prohibition, against their oppon-'  ents' 110,757. thus asking Sir Oliver  by a clear majority of SI,7.0 votes to  prohibit the making, selling, and  drinking of Intoxicating liquor in  Ontario. Did Sir Oliver prohibit?  No: he was as canny as Sir Wilfrid,  end he told the prohibitionists they  must go  to  Ottawa.  Six years ago the province of Manitoba indulged In a prohibition plebiscite and the result was better than  a two to one majority for the teetotalers, the poll standing 18,038 for  ~Drofflb"Itl6n-~and~'7.115"a"gain"st~ But-  Premier Greenway kicked the ball on  to Ottawa and the liquor traffic in  Manitoba was not molested, though  more than, two thirds of the people  had voted for its total annihilation.  A year later little Prince- Edward  Island took a plebiscite and the result  as far as voting could go, was even  more decisive man in Manitoba. Six-  thousand one hundred and eighteen  electors expressed their partiality for  . .old water, while 1.923 taiel whiskey  was good enough for them.  In 1S91 the year of Sir Oliver's  plebiscite Nova Scotia asked for prohibition by the enormous majority of  31,101 in a total vote of 3C.111. The  prohibitionists polled 43,706 votes anel  the  liquor  party  12,355.  These facts are sufficient to prove  that a considerable majority in favor  of urohibltion may be expected on the  29th throughout the whole Dominion.  tboiiKh it Ik claimed by many that  Quebec and British Columbia will  give majorities against. If they do,  Sir Wilfrid will find a ready excuse���������  for not imposing prohibition on these  two provinces against their will, anel  he will be supported by a very considerable majority not only of his own  political supporters in <>,hc house, but.  by antl-probibitionists on the opposite  side, for it Is a curious feature of  human nature that thousands of men  will vote against whiskey itself who  will not vote against a parliamentary  candidate who is well known to be ;i  believer in whiskey, anel the result is  that the strength of the prohibition  element in parliament is not. at all  proDortlonate to that in the country  at  large.  While the question of the efficacy  of prohibtion as a remedy for the evils  of drinking possibly does not come  within the scope of this article, and  while we fully appreciate the risk  we run of brincintr down upon The.-  Herald an avalanche of prohibition  literature, we have no hesitation in  expressing the conviction, formed anel  strengthened by some little quiet observation in this anel other parts of  the world, thnt the legal prohibition  of lleiuor is by no means a cure-all  for Intemperance.  Tn a futur" article we may give our  reasons for this belief, and also point  out. hmr in our humble opinion the  nnnueptloned evils of drinking to excess may be mitigated and cventually  wiped out by other means than  coercion.

Three   Miles  of   Ledge ��������� The Tunnel  Passes Through Thirty Feet of Gold  Quartz���������A Great Property.  -"rom the Calgary IIerald.  The  appended  account  of- a    visit  paid by the editor of the Golden Bra  to the property of the Bald Mountain  Company  will  be interesting  reading  to  Calgarians,    many  of  whom    are  large share holders:  This mining location has hitherto  beeu regarded in the public miud as a  tort of uncertain project. Why we  don't know. Probably the absurd  capitalization _of the company with its  $2,500,000 for 10 prospect claims, has  given it such tt wild cat air that the  public havo regarded the company's  property as little short of anything  else, and the affair has done the district and the company an ' immense  amount of harm. Having heard all  these stories and the prevalent opinion  concerning the property, we visited it  with some misgivings as to its value,  and were agreeably surprised at what  we saw. The trail from the C. P. R.  line to the mine is the best In the district. It was laid out by T. Mercier,  and it is a credit to him, as a horse  can travel any part of it with a load,  and free from any difficulty whatever,  owing to the uniformity of the grade,  and the excellent manner in which  the trail has been opened oilt. The  only difficulty wc found with it is that  at the Donald end it has been badly  blocked with fallen timber and the  government do not seem to have  taken steps to clear il for sonic time.  We reached the company's cabin  about midnight, and early next morning proceeded, In company with Mr.  McAlister, of Calgary, to look over  the ground. The Bald Mountain Company's properly consists of 10 claims,  located along the length of the lead.  The property thus embraces something like  THREE MILES OF LEDGE  At tho western enel of the property  this ledge shows In the' face of a bluff  at an altitude of 6,950 feet above sea  level. The strike of the ledge is north  east by south west, and it has a dip of  55 degrees to tlie north? The ledge  has thus been described as a blanket  vein, but as it assumes a more vertical  position as it travels cast our opinion  is that it is a fissure vein tilted up at  the Bald Mountain end, which would  improve its position as a mineral prospect. The lead is about eight feet  thick where it shows in the bluff. Two  tunnels have been driven on the lead,  one at each end of the property. . Tlie  tunnel at the west end Is ln 225 feet,  cutting right through ��������� the lead, and  there are also lateral drifts, one on  each side, and each 20 feet in length,  The direction of the tunnel is 50 east  of south, so that it cuts.the lead.at  right angles. Tho tunnel cuts through  several quartz stringers in its course,  all well ��������� defined ' with clean talcosc  gouge. These stringers run from two  inches to two feet and a half in thickness, and appear to be all more or less  mineralized. An assay on one of these  stringers. 14 inches in thickness and  .0 feet in from the mouth of the tunnel, gave an assay of ?14 in gold.  This tunnel runs through  THIRTY FEET OF QUARTZ  from the time it cuts the lead on the  foot wall till  it reaches the hanging  wall.  Tliero are two classes of quartz in  the tunnel, ono a rusty white which  Is certainly tho best gold bearing rock  while the other is a blueish grey  quartz carrying about six dwt of  gold. The rusty white quartz is very  similar to tho quartz of the Burns  Basin, and appears to carry about tho  same amount of gold, namely $15 to  .$16. per, .ton.. .We saw .visible, gold, in  several samples that we selected for  examination. The lead rises,between  talc, schist and slate, and has a clip of  30 to the east, the lead thus cutting  the formation In dip, but conforming  to it In strike. Numerous assays havo  boon obtained on the Bald Mountain  ores and appear to have given general  satisfaction to the directors. Wc have  not had access to these assays, but  probably the host test of which wc  are aware was that of a ton of oro  which was despatched to flic coast  last year for n mill test, Tho sample  assayed $30, but the mill test only  gave a return ot hair that amount.  The owners of the mill appear���������to have  veen at a loss to account for the difference In the results. We noted,  however, lhat the  GOLD WAS VERY FINE  much of it being in the iron pyritics,  with which the lead abounds in  places. In tbat case il would be impossible to save the gold with an ordinary mill and a small cyanide plant  would be required in conjunction with  a mill In working this properly before  f-.utlHfaclory results could be obtained  in the saving of gold. Wc cannot  speak In too high terms of the way  In which development work has been  done) on the Bald Mountain property.  It Is well done iu .every way, and is  effective iu showing up the mine. The  tunnel Is six feet, by four feet anel is  therefore available as a working tunnel for the operation of the mine. The  main ledge can be seen outcropping  over the) whole length of the com  pany's property and was lapped this  KCiasem at the extreme eastern enel by  a tunnel which was driven SC feet,  and cut Into the main lead a distance  of four feet. Thei time at our disposal  did nol. permit of our visiting the eastern end of the property, but we are  Informed that the; property looks oven  hotter there than at the western end.  This season's development work was  done under charge of J. Noble.  There are  FIVE MINKRAI-. LEDGES  traversing the property and their outcrops can be traced at numerous  points along Its length. Wc have no  hesitation in expressing the opinion  that the Bald Mountain Company's  property Is one of the most promising in East Kootenay today, and that  whether operated by the company or  by purchasing syndicates lt will prove  under efficient management what we  claim for lt.

It will soon ho timo again for tho reappearance of tho State of Michigan's  mysterious island. During the winter ic  lies at tho bottom of Lako Orion. When  liummor arrives it rises to the surface,  becomes a resort for picnic parlies, fishermen or whoover chooses to visit it.  There aro stumps of treci upon it. and  vegetation nourishes. Thu soil is no different from that along the borders of tho  lako. It is a full aero in area, nnd tho  topography shows tho surfaco to bo of a  rolling nature.  Dr. If: C.

Orion, has studied this islnnil problem  and believes ho has found n probable  solution. This is the result ot his obser-  vaions:  "In the centre of the island," ho says,  "a half dozen or moro" large stumps aro  growing, a clump of three being in tho  centra of the mass. 1 think theso stumps  nro in a great measure responsible for the  phenomena attending its - nnunl sinking  and rising. Thut is, I am of tho opinion  that a collection of theso originally formed thu nucleus for the growth of this  atrauge freak among the inlands of out  fresh wuter lakes.  "The llora of tho hike is something  marvellous in its richness and variety.  Theso stumps havo drifted out to the centre of this portion of the lako, and taken  with thorn some ot tho strands of the  long, snnkeltko plants that grow there to  a length of noarly ten teet,.with the lily,  fronds, mosses and various others ot the  aquatic plants.  "These floating growths have formed  there, with tho earth attached to tlm  stump roots, an island garden all to  themselves. They grow luxuriantly, and  tho underbrush cleared away from the  shores aud other islands thereabouts  gradually drifted into them, and so in-  crca_od the sizo of thu mass; then, as the  wood of tho brush and of tho stump?  decayed, the mass liecamo waterlogged,  anil the wholo gradually sunk beneath  tho surface.  "Bufchow comes it to riso again, as it  does each succeeding year? This is tho  point thnt hns puzzled wiser heads thar.  mine, but I havo n theory for it, which  scorns to answer all the requirements. As  tho flora ripen during tho hot- months of  summer, for tbe island is n thick mass  of vogctntion, tho stems enlarge, - become  buoyant, and, ns tho season advances toward Soptembor, undergo the first stages  of docny; that is, the stoms become fillotl  with tho gases attendant upon fuller ripeness and commencing decay.  "This largo mass of k._ .-enolosing vegetation overcomes tho natural weight of  the mass, tho specific gravity boing only  a littlo hoavier than tho water, anel so  tho wholo mass gradually rises above the  wator's surface; it stays in this condition  above the surfaco till tho hoavy frosts of  the fall occur, whon, tho plants having  been destroyed, and decay measurably  completed, the wholo mass being heavier  than the water again, it gradually sinks  to tho bottom of tho lako, whioh is about  thirty "teet deep at this point, to arise  again the following your, when spring  ;and_summerLhave.brought-thoJake!s.flora.  Into lifo and full vigor once more."  The voner.itod Baron Munchausen is  tho reputed discoverer of tho first floating  islnnil.
