Jane Coombs in Bleak House  There are plays that 'elevate the  stage, and actresses who adorn the  dramatic- profession with a fame thnt  is imperishable. Among'the -former  is Charles Dickens' dramatized "Bleak  House," Among tho latter, none  shine with more resplendent lustre  than Miss Jane Coombs, whose matchless interpretations of Lady Dedlock  and Hovtense nve world renowned.  This grand play will be presented here  with this great actress on Nov. 5t.h.  This will be the first dramatization of  Dickens presented in years, .with one  of the most cultured and gifted intur-  protators of female characters upon  the American stage. The friends of  standard drama and citizens generally  are called on to lend .encouragement  to this praise worthy enterprise of  giving adequate performances of the  greatest dramas with the greatest  actresses of our time. Every college  or high school student and every  young man of culture in our city  should read " Bleak Houso" and then  see Jliss Jane Cotinihs in her wonderful creations of Lady Dedlock and  Hortense, supported hy her magnificent company.  THE GENERAL ELECTIONS  THOUGHT BY THE LA MINERVE  ORGAN TO BE NEAR  DISSOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT  And the Grand Old Party to Again  Hold the Reins of Power���������Reciprocity  a, Failure���������The Present Government  Practically Walking in the Same  Path Worked Out by Conservatives  Montreal, Oct. 2t.-���������La'Minerve,  the firench Conservative organ of the  district -of Montreal, says that for  anyone viewing the political horizou  from a serious point of view, there are  evident signs approaching of a dissolution of parliament anel general  elections. There is among the Liberal  organizer much more activity than  the" few * approaching bye-elections  seem to call for.' " The authorities at  Ottawa are pressing for the return of  provi nt-ial voters' lists corrected np to  date. Tbe members of the Federal  cabinet do not seem to take more  trouble about the next session thnn if  it was not 'to take place before the  elections,. contracts being liberally  awarded, and. banquets and political  visits are tho order of the day." Moreover the men in power know that  prosperous communities are well  disposed towards those who govern  for the moment and 'the benefits of  Conservative policy during a period of  18 years being, now reaped by the  people, the time would seem to be  well.chosen to take advantage of the  prosperity due to the politicians previously in peiwer. "On the other hand,  failure to obtain'.reciprocity and the  determination of Hon. Clifford Sifton  lo wt.ick to his seat in the cabinet, leads  some ministers not to favor- the elections.- -" On *__-_--vrhol������i'---the.-rMinerytf  conies to the conclusion that whatever  may Mie" the issue preparations' are  heing made as if the elections wero a  decided thing and the. Conservatives  should prepare their batteries.  $5 Reward.  LOST���������A gold ring, set with three torquolse  stones. The above reward will be paid for its  return to J. V. Perks, Mining Exchange.

IS THE MAN  Golden Miner:���������It is,on~the cards  lhat at the next Dominion . general  election the Hon. C. H. .Mackintosh,  the managing director of tho British  American Corporation at Rossland,  will be a candidate for political honors.  If he does come forward, and it is to  He~hoped~lie"wilir~thero will "be a fol^  midable candidate in the field against  the' present sitting member, Mr.  Hewitt Bostock. It is about time he  went, as his services have been of little  use to the constituency. He possesses  girts which are neither rich nor rare,  and it is surprising how he managed  to got M,P. after his name.  Mr. Bostock as a distinct personality  has been a dismal failure in- his political aspirations. He was "boosted" into tlie political arena with no better  qualities than unlimited means, and  this, some are cruel enough to say,  was the sole reason for his now holding a seat in Parliament. But his days  as a Parliamentarian are numbered,  for the* time has come, it appears to us,  when his money influence must be  throttled. In Golden wo are not, unfortunately, beyond his "money influence" power, but the edict has gone  forth that we will have no more of  Mr. Bostock or his fll.tby. lucre. The  better disposed class 'of British Columbians are growing tired of being  made to stand aside to make room for  those who control the actions of "The  Almighty Dollar."  By the time the general election  arrives tliere will bo a big- cry for  additional representation by the  people of British Columbia in the  Dominion House. There should be at  least treble the present representation.  The province is entitled to it on  account of its revenue, population, or  upon whatever basis equitable rcprc?  seutation is granted. It is within  measurable distance when this Province will be the wealthiest and most  important one in the Douiinioii*.itdeies  not require a prophet or a son of a  prophet to predict this event, which is  an accepted fact by those who are in a  position to he responsible judges of the  situation.  In the meantime, however, and  pending this increase of'membors. it is  of the most vital importane'ethat these  l-epreseutatlvos which we are allowed  should be men-capable of representing  us in satisfactory manner���������and Hon.  C. B. Mackintosh-is one of those- mem  MINING IN THE LARDEAU  THE OLD GOLD PLACER MINING  COMPANY AT WORK  SILVER QUEEN AND SILVER KING  Owned by the Above Company are  Showing Up Well���������Big Showings  and a Great Deal of Development  Work Done ��������� Union Jack Group  Bonded���������Plenty of Ore in the Towser  Ferguson-, Oct. 27.���������J. W. Westf.ill,  Supt. of "The Old Gold Quartz  anel Placer Mining Co.," has just come  in from the properties which arc situated on tho north fork of the Lai-de.iu.  He is well pleased with the property  and intends pushing development  work. J. W. Westfall has gone about  it in a systematic way by pi-ospecting  the lode, stripping and sinking at  different points. A shaft has been  sunk on the Silver Queen and finds  the lode in place, about seven feet in  size with a pay streak of 18 inches of  nearly clean ore anil five feet, of concentrating ore. A shipment is now  on the way for a smelter test. In  addition ' to the above," a working  tunnel has been started on the Silver  King 2,000 feet below in the-timber.  There is a double shift at work. The  tunnel is in 125 feet and another contract has been let for the winter to  continue the crosscut until the lode ib  encountered at greater ��������� depth,' then  to drive on the lode. All the neces  sai-y buildings nre erected and tlie  supplies are now being" taken in fen-  the winter so as not to delay work in  the early spring in case of a deep snow  fall.. Mr. Westfall seiys the company  intends shipping ore from the_ shaft  above unless it is struck in the tunnel,  just ns soon as the wagon road is cpm-  "pleted;~whieh*he_. "hope _,' will-* be ' early  next snmtner. He is so impressed with  the present outlook that he personally  purchased 'a large block of the treasury stock as the promoter's' stock is  pooled. Assays of the Old Gold Quartz  and Placer Mining Co. run ,from $104  to $1,206 to the ton, carrying gold,  copper silver and lead. This same  company owns sever .I good properties  in the lower country which aie being  worked continually. Mr. Westfall  is also supei iutendent of the  Primrose Gold Milling Co. which  property adjoins tbe Old Gold Quartz,  and report* this property looking well.  Development is being pushed and a  -warking_tiinneLhas_.been_sta_t_d.on  the lode, and is now in 60 feet and  will continue working all winter, the  necessary huildiugs and provisions  being already on the ground ar.d work  will be pushed as rapidly a.s men can  do it. This property lies southeast of  the O.G.T. and these two, together  with the" Black Diamond Group and  th" Duncan Mining Co.'s pioperty are  all on the same mineral run, all of  which have every appearance of being  the Le Itoi of the Lardeau and Trout  Lake districts.  J. C. Kirkpatrick has leturned from  Rossland and has been successful iu  placing the Union-Jack- group, situated on lhe south fork of the Lnrdean.  about two and a half uiil.s from  Ferguson.  Walter Edwards, the well known  cook nt thu Silver Cup, ha* st-irte-d for  the eld country. Walter intends to  return in the. spring, but not alone.  Wm. Johnson hns gone up to get  out the shipment of ore for the Old  Gold Quartz and Placer Mining Co.  Work is being pushed on tbe Nettie  L. owned by the Great Western  Mining Co. Everyone is anxiously  waiting for the report of the contractors aa to if any ore is insight.  Ore has been strockcon the Towser,  and the owners, Meefii-s. Ferguson to  Knowles, aro about to let another  contract.  S. A. Sutherland took a trip out to  Revelstoke on business.  Messrs. Armstrong and Penlersen  have taken a contract on the Old Gold  Quartz and Placer Mining Co.'s. property of 100 feet, and 50 feet or mure'ou  the Primrose property.  Messrs. T. G. Davey and F. Traynor  have struck ore on the claim adjoining  the Gold 8ug,e_o the south fork.  The-owners of the Gold Bug. situated at Seven Mile, on the south fork,  about thiee miles from Fciguson, is  under a bond. The terms are $15,000  in six months,, balance $15,000 in 12  months.lwith tho parties agreeing to  spend $2,000'in development.  If more of the prospectors would  take such offers they would get a  chance to see their properties developed and then reap their hai-vest. The  time for large cash payments down is  over and nothing but first-class properties aro being touched..  WORK  ON THE ETHEL  COMMONWEALTH CO.

But there; is no mistaking the drift  of public opinion that .in viow of the  very serious development ot affairs'.  ln China and Crete, it ought not. bo  long beforo wo hear that a cabinet  council has been summoned to assemble. The dowager empress's unimos-i  Ity to England, according to reliable  authority, is particularly due to her  conviction that the reform movement  in uhinn is attributable to tho exam-  plo of Ufeat Britain in tho matter of  government. She heraclC regards tho  Rusian form of autocracy as tlio only  one that can possibly suit China.  CLERGY IN  POVERTY  Judging from tho number of ads  ln the Church Times of last Friday,  tho "Priest in Poverty" is more in  demand oven than the '"Priest in Absolution." For example a. priest is  required for a very large town in  Yorkshire���������"daily mass'* and "evangelical" (surely a queer kind of theological combination) "with board  and lodging, and ������20 per annum,"  not tho salary of a good cook. But  sometimes no salary at all is offered  as In the following case: Priest wanted for large town in the Midlands,  to live apostolic lite of genuine poverty, with two other mission priests.  Hard work rough living.. Small pay  X20 to ������40.  A local tenens is wanted for a parish  in Gloucester, salary ������1 per week,  with furnished house and garden,  "gardener's wages paid"���������probably  more than the priest. Some of the educational "'wants" . from the same  paper are painfully illustrative of the  struggle for life even among ripe  scholars, as for example : B. A.,  "Worcester, Ox.,English, classics, prose,  math,. French, athletic, age 24. Salary  ������30 to  ������40.  TOD.

The  incident of Thursday, which cost Snm  Loates his mounts for a month, and  Nat Robinson a severe slating nt the  hands of the Jockey club stewards  for boxing Kisshwasser, with Sloane  up, shows that' the ��������� stewards will al  least havo fair play .meted om to the  Yankee.

TIPPING  Tho Ainalnainali'd Society of Hallway Sei'ViiiiiH htm ilecliircd against,  llie pr.-iclIce of tipping tit railway ntii-  tlons. ami I lie public will welcome any  movement for the suppression of this  nuisance. 1'iiforuuiiitely, however,  porters are not in a position to take  up a purely philanthropic position In  this ninltiM". The wages are low���������15s  to 25s a week���������and on such a wage  it would bo unreasonable to expect  thoni to refuse tips. Hut. thoir contention is that il is tho existence of  the tipping system thai makes tlieir  wages low, and in declaring against  the system they are really asking the  public to help them to remove, the  causes which keep down the wages.  Tho evil of tipping does not run to  such extravagant lengths among railway porters tis it docs among waiters.  There are restaurants where all the  servants employed live on each otter's  tips. The diner tips the waiter, the  waiter the carver, and so on, and a  joint on ils way to table will pay as  many duties as a parcel of cotton  goods traveling ,up a Chinese river.  Il is unfair lo tho public that they  should have to make up the low wages  paid by the companies, and it is unfair to lhe porters, who would naturally prefer a higher wage'without tips  to a smaller-wage with the precarious  increments.

There are three classes in tlio competition, and ' in' each  case the hounds will trtyjk "lho clean  boot," that ib no blood or aniseed, or  other strong seeming mixture will be  used to rub on the soles of tho feet",  bul the runaway will go into lhe  course, nntl the hounds will follow the  trail by scent. The many recent failures ot tho police to capture murderers have caused public attention to be  drawn closely to the trials, and if  su'cceBsful there is no doubt lhey -will  be freely used in the future for tracking  criminals.

UESULT OP  PLELJISCITE-  bec's "voting against prohibition yet,"  as tho joke runs in tlio cast.  Should, however, the Laurier government trample upon the majority  in paying no heed to the cries of the  pronlinuoniBts, it would he useless to  turn to the Conservative government  tor such legislation, but the direct result would surely bo, as many loading  lights In social reform have prophesied, that a party pledged lo prohibit Ion  will bo organized nml carry this  groatOBl phase ot moral reform lo a  successful' isHiie.  Considering tho majority of prohibition coiibtituoucli'B represented In  parllauiont, one would think a third  parly unnecessary, but when we remember tho "fear and trembling"  which tlie olel parties manifest, when  attempting to handlo lhc liquor prob-  ienij thero Is litilo wonder that the  existence of an advanced prohibition  puny Is foretold.  Regardless of tho Immediate outcome ot the plebiscite Is It not the  duty or every no-compromise prohibitionist to exercise his right In local  affairs us woll as In federal politics,  requiring tho candidate seeking his  Biipporl to take a public stand on this  liucsilon and incorporating a prohibition plank in his plalt'orm. Some  amy ask: "What can lie done along  such lines at Regina?" Since'ii province cannot enact prohibitory laws,  certainly the Territories "cannot, but  if they in their governmental capacity  tan grant the right ot ti license  holder to permit Intoxicants being  drunk upon tho premises, it only follows that laws can be mado to prohibit tho consumption of liquors upon  licensed premises, which practice is  the very basic principle of the "success" ot the whiskey business. The  bar room or saloon is the school  where drinking is taught, and smite  this school system und you deal a  sickening blow to the liquor traffic,  and our humble opinion is that all  God fearing men should vote in favor  of only such men as will tako this  position. Merely temperance men in  sentiment wont do; but men who are  willing to preach this politics before  tho constituencies and rise or fall by  he espousal of such principles are  the chaps to whom prohibitionists  owo their allegance.  Eloquence, flights of rhetoric and  Provincial Autonomy go hang! ' They  are right and proper in tlieir places,  but their position should not be made  paramount. Produce a man not  studying the politic position to*-assume; but the right course to pursue  regardless of the . immediate result  and such men and only such' men  should secure the support ol" moral reforms and "now I lay me down to  the lesser" is a burstctl theory by  social reformers, ^antl iu its stead  ihey have adopted1 the practice of "of  two evils choose neither one."  In closing* permit mo to add that it  is wilh gratification lhal prohibition  tsts of the Territories learn of at least  jne candidate ��������� taking a bold stand  upon the temperance question,-and  that is Mr. "William Trant, South'  Regina constituency. ' and whom'  many of the Alberta farmers heard  speak when he accompanied Supt.  McKay. Indian Head . Experimental  ."arm, on a tour throughout Alberta,  conducting dairying and farming institutes laM. spring. In concluding hi";  plank on the liquor trallic, Mr. Trant  .~ays: "I will do all-in my power lo  suppress a tiafiic thai so impoverishes  the couniry and degrades the people."

CHINA  Tho Important involution of which  Pekin is now th*~ centre, i,-ivo������ in-  ��������� terest to any particulars about the  j deposed young emperor, whose designs for tho reform of the corrupt,  rulers about hiin have been so suddenly rut short. In his interesting  book From Pekin to Calais by Land,  Harry de Wlndt says of the unfortunate emperor, at an early period of  hi." life, "Kwang Bu cannot, like the  pope, be. said to lead a happy life.  As a matter of fact, It is literally not  ! his own. Everything must be done by  ' rule anel und.-r supervision of court  officials, even to eating aud sleeping.  The poor hoy gets little of the latter  lnvtiry: as frequent, cabinet councils  are held at I a. m., thn Chinese ministers avering that the head is clearer  at that hour of the. day than at'any  other."..\s a result of this grandmother  ly training, it is not surprising that  the emperor become morose,' and was  subject to fits of passion, ' during  which he destroys everything within  his reach. While; under the influence  of such moodrt ho declared he would  not be emperor, and would escape and  work in the fields, rather than bo  shut np all elay in tlm "Porhiclden  Cily." His studies took up about  nine hours a  May.

The liquor  party are loudly .talking the- inability  ot a government to legislate upon the  strength of such a light vote. This  e-Satter���������shoi;'..!���������surprise���������no^one.- We.  1800-1S23  1713  15C8  ��������� 1898  The  first  lino  indicates .the .exlent  could not expect anything elfe. bin  that the "anties" will die- hard, and  as the dt-aih knell is already sending  its haunting peals into their ears.  The louder -aill tbey rant that "you  cau't prohibit" and "the people don't  want prohibition."  i The result of the vote upon the 2Uih  ultimo is certainly satisfactory to the  prohibitionists���������tbe more so on account of the majority being k-"~.-~ than  .rrally expected. Had the -.ote bee-n  iuo heavier, but practically solid ror  'prohibition, then the government  could have made a gr~at handle e.f lhe  result, claiming thai only th" ".e'liti-  mentalists" and the "facldit.ts'" did the  vollnsc., all the anlis Ignoring Hie  eiuCo'lon: but now It Is ������������������vldi.-ui lo sill  leasonable people lhal the liquor  party made lhe fight of their lives  and yet only secured a minority to  muster' the courage to cast tlieir  Kacretl (?) ballots ;u_;ain_t prohibition.  While, the government may juggle  with the mandate tlm* given and all  sorts of "frolics" he set on foot to  call Sir Wilfrid's attention from the  checker board, yet there is onc moral  barricade to his every movement and  that in. thai the; prohibitionists of  the Dominion have complied wit������ mi-  request in staling at the polls- then-  elcslrcs for tho banishment of a  blighting curtc upon the land. This  io the result of a ptivilcg. granted to  tho people, not demanded by them.  Some figure lhal it would mean dissolution to the present government to  enact prohibitory laws. However  true this may be, one thing U certain,  and so say political leaders, that the  Liberal government will be dethroned  febould it Ignore the voice of Canada's  peoplo in refusing Ij legislate favorably to the majority. Mr. Cleo. K.  Marter, M. I'.. stutea lhat apparently  the prohibition majorily in the Dominion as a whole was about tho jam.  as' placed' lhe Liberal party in power.  Had the Conservatives claimed the  right to hold on sinco lho majority  was not more decisive, would not Sir  Wilfrid have thought such an action  very audacious and extremely  naughty? - And well he might, the  total abstineneo element ot this fair  Canada havo declared by their recent  majority that they believe an abstemious life is wholesome for the nation  as well as for tho individual, anel  certainly with Sir Wilfrid's high sense  of honor, no other aclion can be  taken���������in justice to himself and hi3  government���������than that of bringing  about speedy legislation along prohibition  lines,  notwithstanding    Qti-.-  A Gl������tl������ton*������ Anfro.lote.
