I  Our Fall  Are Arriving Almost Daily:  U  All onr lines have been replenished with ii carefully- selected  and well bought stock. But  in ^t he following we eun olYer  you very special inducements:  Boys' Suits  All kinds, all prices.  Men' Reefers  A splendid stoek.  Pants  A large, and complete range.  Underwear  Best assortment in town.  Boys' Caps  The. latest and newest.  Men's Caps  - Litest styles, all prices.  Neckties  The latest fail,��������� vei-y pretty.  t  Rugs  Mats  Carpets  Linoleums  * Quantity, tells.  Quality tells.  Prices tell.  The displays at this store are keen rivals to those in eastern cities.     Ours prove just  as interesting, and are equally important, if not more so. to the citixens of. Revelstoke  j and vicinity. From end to end, from top to bottom, this store is a revolution, bright  I with   every  color tint, complete ns we can make it, and tilled to overflowing with new  goods of every sort, selected by a careful and experienced buyer. A complete store full  | ot bright new goods await the visitor here.     A   replete store full of newness, richness  and worthiness, direct from the most reliable manufacturers the world over and from  g. the world's fashion centres. Careful preparation has lead up to our triumph tliis Fall,  j< and the   Great Departmental Store has become vastly more attractive, \jrith more to see  and more worth buying than ever before.    Our store must be visited to appreciated.  A characteristic feature of this business is its constant improvement, a  better" all tho time and along the line, a fact never so much in evidence as at the  present time. Our ambition is never allowed to flag; our energy never tires, and our  progress knows no limit.     Our success  in  Revelstoke in the past is the inspiration for  ������* still greater achievement in the future, and that means a more perfect store organization,  | a   better   store  service   ond   greater  comfort  and convenience for visitors at this store.  j! It's all a part of our plan of usefulness, and tends to give a greater measure of satisfaction  ji and pleas-uro I'or those who come here   Q ,���������    *  In the collection and distribution of worthy goods, this store leads all North Kootenny.  It has the Inrgest buying power and the biggest constituency. That fact touches every  many-sided business, and every year you see  values grow better and better throughout |  r favor.      Just now we're swinging into ������  NOTE AND COMMENT.  i  The unfortunate  Dreyfus has  been  foil ml guilty again.    This result of llie  trial  i.s   simply   astounding.    To   our  ideas not a tilth.- of reliable evidence lo  connect   him   with  the  bordereau  or  ���������my other treasonable  correspondence  or  negotiations  with  thu enemies  of  France has been heen presented to tin;  court-martial.    In an English court of  law  an  immense proportion of the so-  called      testimonies       would        have  been   tilled   out     of   court     ns    outside     the      case      altogether.       Almost everything  that  we. should enli  evidence was in  the  prisoner's  favor.  Alexander Dumas once said Unit if he  were accused in France of stealing the  towers  of Notre   Dame cathedral   he  would nut wait to take Ids  trial,    lie  would simply holt.    And lhis nmazing  verdict cerliiiiily   makes  it look  very  much ns if Dniiuis' estimnle of French  justice wns correcr.    It seems us if in  order to preserve  the good   name  of  tlie general stall'of the French  nrmy,  Col. Jouast and his  collengues ou   the  court   martini   have,   wilh   a  cynical  disregard nf the public opinion  uf  lhe  civilized    world   almost unparalleled,  decided   to drag  once,  more  the   fair  fume of   France   in  the mud.    Every  point on which the  old sentonfo' wns  based has broken down,  nothing  new  of any reliability hns been brought out,  by the fresh trial.    And yet Drey.pis is  si ill guilty of treason, wilh,  anil  this  is perhaps the most  incomprehensible  part  of   this   most   incomprehensible  finding,    with    extenuating    circumstances.   Tlie only parallel in ancient  or modern history wliich occurs to the  Hi~.li.vr.l~i is the cause celebre   of  the  trial of  the  Knave  of Hearts   as.   reported in Alice in Wonderland.  tlie actual occupants thnn there. To  I his a Toronto contemporary ictorts  that it is possibly owing to this very  circumstance that iu no place in the  Dominion is labor harder worked or  worse payed I linn in Hamilton. From  which it would appear lo result that  lo keep his end up under tbe present  conditions of sen lety the less n working  man hinds liiin.-elf down to any particular spot either by family ties or  ownership of other than portable  property the better. His ideal must  be to remain single and if lie own-  anything to have il. in the .-hnpe of a  bank account���������and it cannot be denied  that lliere is u gold deal in tiie contention. IJul. surely lhe condition of  nlV.-iirs wliich render such u propivition  tenable must be gone very far wrung  indeed.  LARDEAU MINING NOTES'  Strike  Near the  Group.

That's', encouragement enough for  special values all over the store, including some splendid chances in what remains of our  great "salvage sale" stuffs.    Everything marked in plain figures.  ' Next week-Avill be our exhibition week in all the stocks-of each department." The  whole store is sparkling with newness, and thejnugnitude of the displays, the novelty  and beauty of the styles, the astonishing variety and unusual values easily discount any  ever offered in this city.    .'"'". .   -  THREE HUNDRED MEN WANTED  The Kaslo and  Lardo-Duncan   Railway  Want to Employ More Men.

Also Misses'  and Children's Outer Garments in Great Variety.  This collection comprises styles mid creations  from the world's foremost  designers.    It reflects the dictates and fancies of those who set the puce in the  fashion   centres of the world.

You'll he surprised at what thi'i-c is in store for yon.  It is devoutly to be hoped that, in tlie  mailer   of    clearing     the    lemetery  ground those in responsibility will take  care that the work is done under careful and  intelligent supervision.    If a  party of men is simply engaged.to  go  up and clear the   ground,  cleared  it  surely will be of every green  thing in  sight.   The. IIerald hopes lhat this is  not the  kind  of  ''clearing" contemplated by  the' council.   There   are a  number of handsome  young  trees on  the   ground     and   the   greatest-, care;  should he taken tii picsei-vc thoni. ~   If  exterminated    now   it   will   be years  hefore   they   can    be    1 (-placed.    The  Hun ali suggests that at,  present  llie  industry of the city's employes should  be coniined to clearing lhe  ground of  burnt stumps and  fallen  timber,- care  being taken during the progress of the  work not to injure  the  living  vegetation.   Then some   practical   gardener  should  be employed   to   lay  out. lhe  grounds to  advantage-and  make lhe  inu.st of  the  natural  beauties of the  spot.     Under intelligent direction it is  capable of being  transformed into iis  lovely a' God's  Acre as one.can  lind  aiiywhere.and those responsible  will  be inflicting a   grave   wrong on  this  community   if  they  permit   it to  be  spoilt at the  outset  lhrough  carelessness and lack  of appreciation  of the  situation.  Toronto Fress Throttled.  The strike of tlie T. Elton tc Co.'s  employes has placed beyond a doubt  the soundness of our long held belief  that the Toronlo papers aie in serfdom  and that the Toronto departmental  stores are their masters. Heie is an  important fight between employe and  einployet; several hundred cloak  makeis are daily and nightly parading  the city streets; they hold public  meetings .ind the best men of the land  speak for iheni; mammoth audiences  pass resolutions of sympathy for them,  fn sjiorl, it is tl'.e most important  item." in some respects, lhat has i.-rune  before, the Toronto press iu many  months, yet we must, read Oltawa and  Montreal'papers in order to learn the  'meanest 'details ,of the strike. The  Toronlu press is mum.' Not only does  it refrain fruni editorial notice of the  strike, but it will not even give if a,  fair l'cpiirl. The ootopus has the ptPS*s  by the throat and this accounts for the  ail-white record of the octopus.���������Citizen & Country.  Keep Your  Byes on Our  Fruit Window  CB. HUME & CO.

The Rio Tinto coppei mine in Spain,  of which W. A. Carlyle has been ap-  pointedsupeiinteiident, is the. largest  and most ancient copper mine in tbe  world.

Last year lhe mine paid a  dividend to the sliaielinlders of n'o less  than two millions sterling,' It is  hugely owned by the Rothschilds, and  although tlie scale of wages appears  ludicrously low to our ideas, (lie cost  of living is proportionately small.

(Trout Lftko Topic.)  Ed. Boll und Johnny  Morgan  made  a rich strike on recent  locations they  made near the  I^ulc group.   The lead,  lies  parallel  with  tlie  Lade and Bad-  shot  leads  and  is about 2.000 feet dis-.  taut from the grcnt lime dyke.   The  lead   where  the   strike was   made  is-  aboiit 2", feet wide and is a cai Inmate  oie containing huge nuggets of clean,  galena ore which runs 811 ozs.  silver,.  01 per  cent,   lead   and   82  gold.    Two  claims, the White Warrior and  Snow-  Flake. are staked on this find and  are  owned jointly by  Mo-st-.-*.  Bell,  Cummins and Morgan.    The. stiike is con-,  ceded to he one of tbe he.it  made this,  summer.    A very peculiar thing about  this strike is tlie fact that, for the  past    ���������  two years prospectors and among tlieni-  the locators, have been  walking over-  tlie  cropping*,  the discovery  having,  been made nbout, l.*i foot, from the trail-  leading up lo  the Badshot and Lade,  group.    In one  place  where  the lead  crosses the trail  had  it   been  lowered  one foot more lhe trail builders would,  have uncovered 9 inches of solid gulen.i,  ore   of   the   grade   inenlioned above.

AN  EDUo..TIONAL QUALIFICATION  An   attempt Is  being   made  by  the  supporters   of  tlie  Greenway   government  to   throw   ridicule  on   the   proposal   of  Mr.   Hugh   John  Macdonahl  that a  verv  modest educational qual-  itication should be added to  the: provincial frauchisc of Manitoba.    W hen  it   is   remembered   that all   Mr.  .Macdonald asks for is the ability to read  English, it is quite evident that those  who atiempt to raise a laugh  at lna  expense arc uicmselvos sadly in neon  ef  education.       In    these    days   tbe  man   who   cannot   road   English   can  know   but  little  of  the  public  issues  " of the dav in Canada, but as the law  stands at' present the  vote of such a  person   is  quite   as   good  as  that  of  the most cultured   citizen,    lt  would  be   interesting to  know   exactly   how  Won   Lung,  the  Chinese  laundryman  on Atlantic avenue, views thc sweeping reductions recently  made  by  the  parliament of Canada with regard  lo  the price  of  binder  twine,  and    one  cannot  help  but  wonder   whether  a.  John   Guzzlschuck,   our   Galician   as-  similant    proceeds    to     the    polling  booth the exercise of his franchise will  bo  affected   by   his    opinion    of  the  judgment of the English Privy Council in the matter of the rights of the  Roman   Catholic   minority   in   .Manitoba.  The Herald is firmly of the opinion  that Mr. Macdonald is right and that  tlie suggestion which he has made is  good enough to be adopted generally  throughout the Dominion, substituting a French reading test in the  French districts of Quebec and Ontario. That every ignorant Chinaman  whose ballot may be needed for the  return of a candidate, should be allowed to vote without the slightest  knowledge of public issues, or of any  thing connected with his '-duty a._  a citizen, is an absurdity tliat cannot  bo  remedied  too soon.  The Montreal Witness, for -0 years  one of the most uncompromising opponents of everything and everybody  Torv, has the'courage to endorse Uie  position   taken   by   Mr.   Macdonald:  "Explaining his policy, should be  carrv the elections, in Manitoba. Jlr.  Hugh John Macdonald is reported as  saving that he intended to guard  against the danger of a sudden in-  llux of large numbers of Slavs, who  know nothing ot representative government or of free institutions, by  cnacting that they must acquire a  sufficient knowledge of the English  tongue to be able to "speak and read  before thev can vote. According to  the British" North America act, which  is the constitution ot Canada, jurisdiction in matters of civil rights is  expressly vested in the provincial  legislatures. The enactment propos-  bv Mr. Macdonald would therefore  be within the competence of the  Manitoba Legislature. Thc only thing  to be considered is the wisdom of U.  Of that, we think, there can be no  dout for two sufficient reasons���������  first, the one stated hy Mr. Macdonald: second the necessity, for bringing these strangers into harmony  ���������with the rest of our population by  their acquiring and understanding  the language, laws and institutions of  the country. The danger of admitting masses of ignorant foreigners  ~���������to_full~citizen5*nip_ before-they���������have-  have acquired such knowledge was  demonstrated in the United States,  and led to thc enactment of just such  a law as Mr. Macdonald suggest .  The educational test is admittedly the  best that can be devised. Under if:  operation the second generation of  newcomers will grow up Canadian."  and become, by natural process, identified with the counlry. It may be  said thaat in advocating such legis  lation we would be taking the same  stand as the Boers towards the L'it-  landers. Tliere is at least the difference that the L'itlandf-rs are people born and reared under tree in-  sllintions, accustomed to self government and of superior intelligence,  education and enterprise, to the lioers.  ���������wuich" cannot be said cf jliese Slavic-  peoples and their institutions when  comparing them with Canada. At  all events, when thc case is our own,  it seems good to us to admit them  to full rights of citizenship only on  the conditions that tliey become -as  we are ourselves. This is really the  only way by whicli a homogeneous  nationality can lie built up."  million pounds of binder twine wore  imported from the Slales, and most  of the Canadian binder twine factories were killed. Kingston penitentiary however was left and the whole  output of the institution lias been sold  to the friends of Sir "Wilfrid, H. N.  Bate &��������� sons of Ottawa, at -i-^-c a  pound���������who in turn sell it to the  farmers at lsic. The prico of binding twine at Calgary today is 13c  per  pound.  In the old days tlio farmer paid  half n cent a pound to the Dominion  treasurj���������now be pays Ki cents to  Messrs Bute it sons, who do not carry  on business in tho Philippines but n't  Ottawa,   close   to   Sir   Wilfrid's   ear.  Still Sir Wilfrid in onliUed to some  credit for his Utile pleasantry about  "the reduction of Manila to ashes"���������  which might appeal to (hose who are  unable to think. But iho Philippine!  story won'l go in tho West. 'I'nere  bus boon no such increase in the price  of inan.ila (which forms about IS  Per cent of the raw material) to account for binder twine being more  than, doubled in cost. This nianila  cost the government -I rents, and thov  sold iheir finished product to Messrs  Hate & sons tit a prcilit 'of hnir a  cent a pound. The Calgary purchaser  today will have to pay no less than  1."   cents.  Hven though the fiirnier Is thus  compelled to pay niore than dciuhl"  Its vale for his binder twine he must  not ccinipliiin, because as he will be  told on every Western Liberal pint -  forin   at    llu:   next    election: i 1110  LlllKltAL GOVKRNMUNT A 1)01.LSI I-  lil) THE DUTY ON HINDER  TWINE." 11 may,however, occur lo  him that the result of the present  policy has been to destioy n Canadian industry, to create and enrich  the Hate monopoly, to sncriliee the  revenue, from the duties, and lastly  but by no means the least practical  result, to more than double the price  of twine to the farming community.  now the liturgiciil use was not by law  pernianeniiy excluded from the cliurcli  ritual yet, meanwhile the law required   that  tho  clergy  should   wait    foi1  the aclion of tin: lawful authority be-  lorc   bringing  in   additional   ceremonies  to  form  part  of   the  public worship.     They   were   obliged   lo   come  to the conclusion  that the- uso of incense as  part of thc worship was not  ut   present enjoined  or  permitted   by  tne   law   of   tho   church,   and   it   was  their duty to reipiest thoir clergy who  use it  to  discoii'.inue  that uso.    Precisely   the   same    line     of   reasoning  was   applied   ic   processions   carrying  ligiils.     There   was  no   authority   for  processions curbing such  lights,  and  tiie archibsliop requests the clergy to  discontinue.     The   arcliibshop's   closing   words   wi'i-i .      "We.   onl real   lhc  clergy,  for  the sake of  the  peace of  the   church,   to   accept   our   decision  th.itf  ciiuscienticusiy    given,     in  thu  name  of   our    Ltunnion    Master  am!

DOSSIERS AND  BORDEREAUX  The Anglo Saxon mind has been of  late fairly puzzled by the -world wide  use of- the terms ."bordereau" and  "dossier" in connection with the Drey- ^  fus affair. Before they disappear as  thev undoubtedly will, as soon as the  Affair is supplanted by the next sensation il might bo well to see wnat  thev really mean.  Tho bordereau so often referred to.  is the name given to a letter addres .-  od to tho Gorman military attache at  Paris reciting a list of written French  military    secrets    whicli    the    writer  enclosed.       Tho     word    -'dosser*'���������a  bundle or    basket.      In    tho Dreyfus  case it means ihe secret.      bundle of  papers or documents, which    as    has  become apparent,  are of throe kinds.  -First thoro was a      mass of      forged  letters,     telegrams     or    'memoranda  concocted  by Colonel    Henry and remitted  by him just before  his  death  to have been forged by him. Secondly, a few  telegrams  showing that  in  iheir  secret  correspondence  thc  German  and  Italian embassies  discussed  the innocence or guilt of Dreyfus  in  a manner which clearly shows      that  neither of  them  had      any  relations  with him and thirdly there are a few  telegrams showing that before      and  after the arrest and imprisonment of  Dreyfus thc German and  Italian governments had an oflicer of the French'  general staff in their pay.  "* Tliere are other terms which appear  with "great  regularity  in  the   reports  of the      proceedings,  but      they  are  mostly terms of reproach.

The reason is given by no less a  person than Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who  eays: "The fact that the Philippines  were devastated ��������� by war. and that  probably a great deal of Manila has  been reduced to ashes accounts alo.-.c-  for the  increase of  price."  Tiiis beautiful, if somewhat romantic theory, formulated by the premier  nnd delivered in liis very sunniest  maimer would Ik; nil riclii if ji wer"  t.ru?. But i* is Uot tiijp. We doifi.  have lo go to the Philippines or in  fact outside of Sir Wilfrid's own houso  to find thc true reason of the unexpected increase in the price of bind *!r  twine under a government of fn -m-  ers ty farmers for farmers.  In the first place there was a great  Courish of trumpets in 1898 when  the duty was taken off binder twine.  No Briton might, could or would be  more free than binder twine under  a Liberal administration. The practical result of tbe removal of the  duty -eras that somo eight and a half  SH'.KTEH  SPEECHES  WANTED  T. P.
