Griffith-, the returning  officer, was not at Donald when the  time for taking nominations arrived.  T. Plowright of Golden, had come in  the night before stilling thai hu had  been appointed deputy returning officer by Mr. Griffiths, who, it was understood, had' resigned the* position of  returning officer and intended himself  to run us a candidate. However Mr.  Ploivright had not got the writ vvith  him ,nor had he been sworn in. In  consee-uenee'he was unable* to act and  when nomination papers and the usual  deposit of $200 were tendered him on  behalf of ,T. Forrest of Donald, hi'  declined to accept them. In the meanwhile Mr. Griffiths had not yet arrived  and one* o'clock, the hour for closing  the nominations, came and went and  nothing had been or could be done.  At four minutes past one Mr. Griffiths  walked up lo the court house'  and Mr. J. Pitts tendered him papers  nominating ��������� himself, J.* E. Griffiths,  us candidate, which - he refused to  accept. Then Mr.1?. H. Corson handed  T. Forrest's papers and deposit whicli  lie also distinctly re-fused. lie; then  read the', proclamation laid down in  the   act   and -declared   _W.

Cm-son,  whii vvas killed in the recent catastrophe at Rogers Pass, took plticu from  the residence of his father, F. H.  Corson, at Donald on Sunday, Feb.  5th. The service vvas conducted by  Archdeacon McKay and Kev. Mr. Turner. Mr. Corson vvas the son of thu  well-known C.P.It. engineer, Mr. F. H.  Corson, and a large concourse of residents of Donald were present at tne  funeral, thus testifying to their sympathy with the frmilv of-the deceased  elected* by 'acclamation.- Mr. .Wells',:  p.ipcrs were not .produced nor was he  named lo the.electors as_a. candidate.  IIo was simply, declared,, elected by  acclamation. Afterwards in the  courthouse Mr. Griffiths admitted to  Mr. Corson that he thought the  papers handed .him"by, Mr. Corson,  were papers nominating himsellV J. E.  Griffiths, as a candidate, and therefore refused theni. Mr. Corson  replied that the government.-did .not  pay hiin for thinking anil that he  should have been there on lime*.  Since, although it vvas perfectly  legitim.ite for Mr, Wells to bund his  nomination papers and deposit to the  returning oflicer at any time and  place afLer the issue of lh'" proclamation he chose, still the mere fact of  their being in possession of that officer  was riot enough. Any particular por-  tion of space occupied by Mr. Griffiths  A Plea for Resident Workingmen.  Editor Hekald���������Sir,���������I ask space  in your columns in behalf of working-  men lesident in this town to ask where  and how a man has to go about to get  a job on this river bank now. There  are men here who live here that have  been promised work from the start  hut kept waiting from time to time.  Novv the foreman tells them they are  full handed, and when asked about  promising and then putting on strangers they say those strangers have  heen sent to them and they have to  take theni. Now, who has a man to  go to t*i get those orders and how  much do they cost, as there are some  men living here who would like to get  work if it does not cost too much.  They have no money to pay in advance,  hut might contribute 11 percentage of  wage if necessary. Some of them have  been here feir years anil are willing to  work at anything tbey can get. - Novv,  any one giving information that will  put these men on the right track will  confer a great f.-i-vor to workingmen.*  J. McCallom.  up to the hour of 1 p. in. on February  6th, 1809, was not proclaimed to be  the place of nomination, but the town  of Donald. B. C, where, nccirding to  Section 03 the returuingofficer Should  at the time stated iu his proclamation  have proceeded lo the hustings in the  open air, at such a place as lhat all the  electors might have free access thereto,  and should there have iiiiule in the  presence of the electors proclamation  and should then and there have read  the writ of election and then and there  have mimed to the electors present  the person or persons who had notified  him in the manner provided by law  that they were candidates for election  to fill the vacancy iu the legislative;  assembly." The returning officer not  being present these duties devolved  upon the election clerk, whose business it certainly vvas I o have declared  T. Forrest elect eel by acclamation,  if he had been properly qualified  to do so. The nomination pel haps  belonging to W. C. Wells, uot having  been produced at the time and place  mentioned in tl.e returning officers  proclamation were useless. It is true  that the returning officer appointed  by the government, bad them in his  pocket; but that does not belli Mr.  Well's case. The returning officer not  being in person at the place of nomination was really not0 the* returning  officer  for   time    being   at   all.  Of course under these circumstances  the action taken hy Mr. Griffiths during the aftprnoon in declaring W. C.  Wells elected by acclamation was  beside the case altogether. He might  just as well have declared him Lieut.-  Governor of British Columbia or  Emperor of Timhuctoo. The election  clerk being unable to do his duty at  the appointed hour. Mr. Griffiths had  no power to come in at any hour or  day afterwards that suited his convenience and declare anything, much less  to declare-a candidate elected whose  as I know of no reason fur resigning,  and as'l have 11 clianicte'i-'to 'maintain',*  as a ma'tt.-t- of justice I'demand the  fullest investigation of any complaints  made against me, and I feel' confident  I can show a clear recoiel, and thut the  investigation vvill show those making  the complaint up in a very unenviable  light.  ' I have the honor to be. Sir.  Your obedient  -ervunt, ���������  .  John D. Sibbald.  Government Agenl.  To this straightforward appeal for  simple justici;���������the' little tin gods ut  present ruling the Victoria most have  so far paid no attention. All that  Mr. Eberts' question in the house  elicited was a copy of the Provincial  Secretary's demand on Mr. Sibhald to  resign and of Mr. Sibbald's answer as  given above. In. his letter .the Pro.:  vincial Secretary ' adduced as the  reason for the demand that "certain  representations had been made."  What these representations were "and  who made them has never appeared.  Mr. Sibbald demanded an investigation which has not heen granted. Al!  that can be got out of the Mail is  naturally dirt and more ditt.  Now thi* Herald hereby challenges  Kellie to pioduce the charges ng.iii^t  Mr. Sibbald if there are; any. The  HERALD challenges Kellie to come nut  like a man and not be sneaking t-.ny  longer behind the Lieut.-Governnr's  petticoats. Tliere is nothing gained  for Kellie by all this dodging and  skulking. Everybody in town knows  thai Mr. Sibbald's dismissal was due  partly to Kellie's own bitter personal  animosity against Mr. Sibbald and  partly to the necessity of making a  place for some one of Kellie's supporters. Everybody in town kuow.-,  that two. if not three, others besides  Couisier had the pioinise of the position. Somebody had to have it.  though why Kellie gave it lo the one;  of the whole crowd vvho had the !e<tst  following and influence is another  addition tr. the many unsolved mysteries of Kellie's political career. All  these things are palent to everybody.  Tliere is no use in Kellie's trying to  conceal the facts from the public. If  there were any charge* againt-t Mr.  Sibbald the HERALD again challenges  him to produce them. If there aie  none the Herald ngain challenges  him to come out like a man and say  so. But the Herald knows right  well that Kellie dare do neither the  one thing or the other. He is not man  enough to do either,.  After   Several   V/eek3   Spent   on   the  Yukon Creeks���������A  Good   Liberal   Denounces the Fav.-cett Administration���������'  ���������The Crown Reserves and  the  Roy-'  alty���������The    Sifton   Policy   is   Suicidal  and a Blight to the" Country.  Mr. Atiluy Morrison, M. P. for New '  Westminster,  after   spending several '  weeks in visiting the Klondike  creeks '  and gathering  the actual   facts  from/���������  the miners themselves has unburdened  hiuisi'lf in a very outspoken interview  published   iu   the   Klondike   Nugget. '  Theieportof the interview reads as  follows:  " Mr. Morrison, as a member of tho 1  party in power, regretted   very   much  -  to find so many cases of maladmiiiia-   -  trillion of  the mining  regulations  by   .  representatives   of   lhe    government.    ,  In all our travels and  in  conversation    -  with   scores   of   men,    hard-working  ��������� -  miners for the most part,  vve  failed to     :  find a single man   who  could- speak   a    -  good word for the  gold "commissioner   .'  or     his     subordinates    The   general   -  feeling seemed to prevail over all  tho -  creeks   that. Mr.   Favvcetl's   tidininis- '  tration   lias  proven, ii   blight   to  the  **  development of   thc country.     Hun-  '  dreds of   men,   discouragecr'and   disheartened, have left for the outside or * ���������  for the lower country,, driven   out  hy  lhc conviction that an honest man had  110 show against the manipulations  of   .'  schemers. - The 'entire   "workings "of    -  the administration of lbe laws stem to    -  have been directed against the  efforts   *  of the honest prospector and  in  favor  of tlie speculator.  a. suicidal policy  "'.Mr.   Morrison   considers    it    most-  disgraceful that so many  willing  men  are compelled to accept lays on claims    ���������  instead of being ablo to  work  ground  whicli they cim   call   tlieir  own.    The  policy of the government in  reserving  for  the  Crown  all   fiacl'ons and'the  alternate blocks of  10  claims  he  considers    as     being    preposterous   and  suicidal.     If the government attempts  to  work   these  claims   they  will  cost  more   than  lhey    will   produce.    The  -oulv-Milulion-for-the matter-is that-tho ���������  ' - *������    ,  government tin ovv these claims open  for reslakiug.  , -~" ���������  ROYALTY  TAX  UNJUST  " Again, afierlooking tbe sittiHtioiv  over carefully and thoroughly, he is of *  the opinion that tlm royalty tax is unjust aud uncalled for/an.'! should be immediately removed. It is a burden  which tbcgovernmeiit is unwise in placing upon the people. Mr. Morrison objects very strenuously to the'golil commissioner's decision whereby certain  claims on Dominion creek are more  than 1.000 feet in width. It is bis  belief thnt these claims should be cut  up into four parts and in this way men  vvho are working lays or pulling their  sleds over the ice in order to gi:l"oiit of  the country could secure claims of"  their own."  Say Nothing But Saw Word.  To the Editor ol tfcj Herald:  Sir: Iu yo ir issue datod _tli inst.,  I notice a statement that two men  can cut five cords of wood per day at,  $1.75 per cord, thus earning daily $.75-  between them. This I beg to flntly  contr.ulift and 1 confidently assert  and I think tbat practical men will  bear me out when 1 say that two men  cutting vvood ;it this season of tho  year are doing good work when they  cut. three cords per day.. 1 it.ay also  add the only remuneration which a,  man is lidely to get is an order on the  stores and in a very rare case an odd  dollar.

It must, be admitted  that the Professor is u hustler, since  he   has   sent  forward   no   fewer   than  15.000 Galicians.     Mr. Smart was cure-  fill to explain that this gentleman wns  not an agent, and received nothing for  his   work;   though   on   being pressed,'  he admitted that the genial Professor  had  been  given  an   advance  of   ioOl)  to carry on his vork.     Of S,000 European   immigrants   for   the   past  year,  more than 4,000 vera  Galicians.      A  little over   a    thousand    were    from  Great Britain, and a very small number  indeed  from Ireland.      Ot course,  as  Mr.  Smart said,  this was  all  the;  Professor's    fault.      He vvas    such    a  much better hustler than    the    other  fellows working elsewhere.     The Galicians were a smart race.      Although  they  came from  that  part of Poland  annexed     to      Austria,     they    spoke  neither Polish  nor    Austrian,    but a  distinct and almost obsolete dialect of  Russian,   which   no    one   elso   could  speak.      Hence they must be smarter  than the general run of peoplo.    Noils  this the only obsolete thing about  iheni,   as!  those   who   have   watched  their habits in the vicinity of Edmon  Britain's Trade for Last Year Reviewed  ��������� Effects of the Reduction of Postage Rates���������The HaDitual Inebriates  (From our own Corr������-po_il������iit)  London.

In no previous year has tlio  demand beon so enormous. This tact  has been eluc to many causes, bul  most of all to tbo exceptionally largo  amount of ship building work both  fo" the royal and for the mercantile  servico: to the rconiclcsciicc of municipal enterprise in all parts of the eoitn-  l-.-}-, In building up systems of electric  lighting, gas, water and s-anltary  works, and promoting tramways and  light railway systems; and tho extraordinary amount of private enterprise exhibited in laying down a new  piant of almost every description���������new  engine', now boilers, now niachino  lools,  now  olectri'      equipments,  and  Now   Vork.   February  1.���������A   Washington  special  to Thu Tribune  says:  Maximo   Gomez,  Cuban    Commander-  fJcnei-ul,  demands  nearly    5(J0,OU0,UO")  from the United States and refuses to  disband  his "army" until tlio  money  Is paid.      Uo  lias repudiated  tho ar-  ningouu'pi  made  by  Callxto    Garcia,  who came to Washington'with authority from Gomez lo provide for the return  of the Cubans lo tlieir peaceful  pursuits, and whose work was barely  accomplished beforo his sudden dentil  on December Uih.  It vvas then agreed  that the United States, lu order to secure  the prompt resumption of labor  on  the plantations of tlio Island, and  with a view to promoting tho speedy  revival of prosperity and settled conditions,  should  distribute  about    ?li,-  000.000  among   the  30,000  said  Id   bo  sllll  under arms'* In the ratio ot $100  u man, the ollicers   in proportion    io  thoir rank to receive a greater amount  and  the ordinary enlisted men to  bo  discharged willi sums loss than $100,  ck-pendlng on  thc length     of sorvieo  and  other  considerations.      For  ovor  u. month   the pay  corps ot tho  army  has been making ready to carry out  this  arrangement,  thc    national    defence fund    being    available    tor the  purpose. Gomez hns come out against  lho scheme, which was operating satisfactorily to most Cubans and has demanded greater stakes. It Is olliclally  known hero that he is endeavoring to  dissuade Cubans from accepting ollice  under the American occupation and is  uiging all tho natives of every grade  to  stay with  lilm  ln  the field,  until  the  United States is compelled to ac-  cncio  to his   torms    of    disbandmoiu.  Gomez alleges that li.s army consis'.s  r.f 40,000 men and he insists that most  of.lhem shall bo paid for three years'  service at the ratos whicli prevail in  the United States army.     He fixes tho  date  of the Cuban declaration of independence  at  February  'i-i,   1893,  as  the beginning of lho period for which  himself and   his  forces arc  to bo remunerated, and for himsolf, with tho  rank of lieutenant general, he will lie  satisfied with  511,000    annually,    tho  American rate for that grade.

It would appear that there  were" two freight trains bound eastward and that on the arrival of the  first train at Medicine 'Hat, it vvas  unable to get where the switch engine  was working. The traiii was standing on the,bridge when the second  freight froni the west, nccinlngly beyond, control, rushed down the grade  from Bowell and collided. Conductor  French was In the caboose of the  lirst train and was thrown over the  bridge anel on to thc ice, a distance  of 3S feet." Ho sustained terrible injuries and although' everything possible was dono -to alleviate his sufferings he died yesterday afternoon  (Thursday) at 3 o'clock. *  Engineer Muir was one of the best  known engineers on the road, having  boon employed for many years on this  division. He was a capable and ^rust-  worthy engineer, and the feeling .is  general that his engine must have got  away from his control and that he  had no ��������� time to attempt to master  her. ._..  .Conductor French's, death will  cause a shock to his many friends in  .Calgary. "Ben" French, as In. vvas  popularly known,-was-employed for  some years'as brakesman on the C.  & 13. under conductors Rankin and  Clarke, and by his knowledge of his  business and courteous manner soon  secured promotion to the position of  conductor.

FROZEN TO DEATH  One ol the Largest  Farmers  in Canada  Hiram Walker," the" well known* distiller,-of Walkerville, is dead.. But  Mr. Walker was a good deal more than  a distiller. Ho vvas. perhaps, tne'  largest farmer in Canada. The Bun  of  July  last  mentioned  a  lot  of  ln-  _ formation   about  the   extent   of   Air.  1 Walker's operations in this direction.  There were then on the Walker farm  G9 acres of hops. The vines were not  supported by poles, as ,bi the ordinary  way. There was a row of-telegrapn  poles all around the field, and from  these poles No. S wire was strung  from one side of the field to the other.  From   this.-wire .again   strings   -were  ��������� hung,- and 'these strings supported the  vines. In harvesting the strings were  cut from the wires, and the vines were  lhen stripped. But the hop' plantation is not the chief feature on the  Walker farm. Cattle byres are located about a mile from the Walker distillery, and from these byres 1,800 or  2,000 of swill-fed cattle are turned out  every season,  the swiil  being carried  _In_iinderground_pip.es_frpm_the^dlstljh.  lery to the byres.. , .  The use of tho by-producers of tlio  distillery does not end even th.rc.  i-rom the byres five great pipes run  a milo still further east. - These carry  the liquid manure , from " the cattle  ���������stables to the Walker tobacco planta-  ���������tion. A few. years ago this manure  was poured 'into a near by hush, and  It was so sirong that it killed gr'ea;  trees. But this' double vv aste has now-  been stopped. From late fall until  ���������early spring the rich liquid pours out  ���������over the ground devoted - to the cultivation of tobacco. The:ground al-  'otteel to'thls-purpose covers 130 acres.  "For 1-5 years consecutively tobacco  has been grown on the same land,  but the manure from the stables has  ~not only rendered the land able to  sustain "this drain, but has made it so  rich that mushrooms spring up spontaneously when the tobacco is .not  growing. 0   SALMON  CAHNERS  Banks Shut Down on Them and  Hardships Ahead  Vancouver, ���������- February 3.���������Owing to  the Hon.

Jaime  Cnchu on this side of the Yellow-head  pins. The'se deposits lie almost, due  north from Revelsloke and not far  ft-iiin the Canoe river. Tliey are of  immense ex tent and the mica produced  from tlicm is of lbe finest quality, as  may be scon from a specimen tiow in  possession of the Herald. The only  olist'icle lo their development, is their  inaccessibility. Under those circiim-  stn nccs lln* present owners who are at  this very time negotiating with  I/ineluii capital to t-ike hold of the  property and work it are naturally  greatly interested in the project, now  well cm foot to establish a line of  steamers on the Columbia, nortn of  Revelstoke. From Mr. St. Cyr, of the  Dominion Government Topographical  Survey, Mr. Winter has received the  following report as to the practicability of navigating tho northern  waters of the Columbia and Canoe  river. The report is very short and is  here given in full. It is most significant to any far seeing resident of this  place of the possibilities of- trade  territory which nature has placed in  the bands ot the business community  of Revelstoke if tbey have only  sufficient. enterprise* and energy to  avail themselves of the: geographical  advantages possessed by this town. If  the transportation problem can be  overcome those mica deposits will be  worked, and if it'is overcome by our  aid, tho business arising from them  vvill centre here, and besides this we  shall add as trade* territory to this  town the whole of t.he country north  of Coldstream to Tete Jaune Cache, a  country   very   little  known   or    pros-  Miirtin's famous clause excluding  aliens from taking up placer claims  hvmiih to be likely to become a regular  boomerang for thc Martin government.  It was intended partly to embarass  Premier Laurier in bis negotiations  with tho United States government.  This point was not quite apparent to  the people of this province, who have  have not yet got accustomed to Mr.  Martin's peculiar methods of making  provincial politics subservient to Dominion affairs and vice versa, But  llie eastern papers who know their  Joseph better, seized on'this aspect of  the enactment at once. Joseph himself knows what ho is doing ns be is  already breathing the direst threats of  what be will do if the Dominion government disallow the. nevv legislature.  But if Mr. .Maitin fancies that he is  Riling to work up the people of this  province over the exclusion of aliens  from pl'icer claims in the same way  that he worked up the people of  Manitoba over the school question,  then his political astuteness has failed  him. The communities most concerned, that is the mining districts, do  not want to see Americans excluded  from any privilege hitherto enjoyed  by them as miners and prospectors  under the laws of the province. The  mining interests of this country owe: a  great deal to the pluck and enterprise  of American prospectors and miners.  It. was the American placer miner who  led the way into Cariboo, Big Bend  and Wild Horso in the sixties. We do  not want any legislation  Americans particularly the kind of  legislation which bars out the prospector and lets the capitalist como in.  This feature' of the Martin clause  alone is sufficient to kill it-in Kootenay, and if the Dominion government  chooses to veto the enactment theie  will be no excitement in this part of  the world. If Premier Laurier finds  tbe clause interfering with his negotiations at Washington, he can  safely  it,  The Leading $iore."  ." No Bluster, No I'tias, Just ItuBines?, That's All."
