To tbo Editor ol the Heeald: '  Sir: As one who takes an interest  in the political situation, I was glad to  see the Revelstoke Liberals arrive at  something at last, even if it was party  lines, with destructive Joe as their  leader. But I see" now that, th  Kootenay Mail gives out that they are  agreed on one particular point,' that is  in the event of Hon. Joseph being  1-etnrned to po.ver, his government  could not be called n Liberal government, while, on the.other hind, if Jos,  Martin was turned down it would be  construed as a Liberal defeat." So if  Mai till is sustained it cannot be called  a Liberal victory, but if beaten it will  be considered a Liberal defeat. - Well,  we will let them have it that way.

Joseph Martin announce  his opinions on the questions at present  before   tho    electorate    of  this  province.   The audience,  which comprised a fail* sprinkling of the ladies,  was an interested and attentive  one,  hut certainly could not he described as  enthusiastic.    Ii. A.  Brown took the  chair '.end introduced the speaker of  the  evening,    who    commenced   his  ���������uldress   by   stating   his   reoaons   fur  delaying the elections.    He said that  in his opinion it was eminently proper  not to hold the elections at too short a  notice, and the proof that he was right  was that efert now in only it few constituencies  had thc   candidates been  declared.   The reason was, that unlike  the older provinces when at the call of  in election two distinct parties were  already in existence, British Columbia  was  just    now    passing   through a  transition stii.gr.    For many years the  government   had  been   composed of  and supported by Conservatives and  the Island.    The  mainland  had  been  slowly  and grudgingly  given   recognition.     The- dissatitfactiou   ut  this  state of affairs had ctilininaled in 1898,  when ,the    elections had   practically  t timed out a tie,  whereas before that  date the opposition h.td always fought  a    hopeless    fight.     Though  poorly  organized, and in had shape, they had  succeeded   in    dividing the House in  two and the Semlin government had  been able to go thiotigh the session of  '98 and   put   through   the   measures  which it proposed.   He thought the  country Had  been  suti.fied with the  work of that session.   Had tlie government passed ii fair redistribution  bill and then gone to the  country, he  believed they would   have 'been  sustained at that time.  . What  the  province    required  was  'more solidity imd stability in  government affairs which he hoped the next  house would supply.   His own cabinet  was  now   complete   and   had   had  a  definite programme before the country  for the last six weeks.. 'Party lines had  been declared   hy  the   Conservatives  largely at the instance tit Sir  Hibbert  Tupper  for  the-express    purpose of  putting the party into good shape in  the province  in   the   next Dominion  contest.    He1, was  in   favor of party  lines, but not for* any s'uch reason 'as"  lhat.    His  reason   for   favoring the  introduction of party lines' was that  they   could  never     have    a'    really  responsible government till there were  two clearly defined sides iu the House.  No better instance of the weakness of  the old state of things could  be  found  than the political career of the Revelstoke   .representative,   J.   M.   Kellie.  .There was no bond of  union  between  one member of llie house and others  with whom he might be working from  time to   time.     IndividiTil   ministers  were blamed fov this or that law or  line of conduct,  instestd of the whole  government being held lesponsible. as  it  should   be������     His   party   was   not  however appealing' to th'e country as a  Liberal party,  but  as" a government  pledged to certain principles set forth  in their platform.   For this  reason  he  was   opposed   to   independent   candidates.   Such men were no u>e tn  him.  Each    constituency     should    declare  itself either for or" against his" government.  ~~Mr���������M.irtinltlu,n.cimmienced_a_jcritV  i-ism of his i.ppouents. He said lhat  the Conservatives bad started out as a������  party supporting a platform wilh  certain radical planks, but their  candidates we*e busy explaining these  planks away and would not even commit themselves to Mr. Wilson as a  leader.  The Conservatives Tn Victoria bad  repudiated him anil denounced the  platform. In Kootenay Mr. Mackintosh was out avowedly not aa a Conservative and had declared against  party lines. If the Conservatives got  in what policy would be adopted ?  Could Mi*. Thos. Taylor point to any  Either Conservative candidate, whose  views agreed wilh his? At this point  the speaker quoted copiously from  recent issues of tlie'HKRM.U, endeavoring to prove that Mr. Taylor bad  repudiated the government ownership  of railways and the eight hour law  He then went on to discuss the various points in his own plalforn: aud  gave a long account of his "coalition"'  with Mr. Kellie and the Naraiui"  gerrymander. lie _i������ld that next year  tbe government of the day would have  before theiu tfie figures of the new  census and his party proposed in the  following session to introduce a fair  redistribution measure hosed o'n these  figures, and then to appeal to thtf  country again, llu1 repudiated any  alliance with Mr. Jas, Dunsmuir and  defended ttiitfnelf vigorously from the  charge of beingago7efnmentwr*ecker.  At the close of his speech which was  received with' great attention and a  spirit ��������� of good humored fairness,  though without any evidence of much  enthusiasm, the Premier had iv lii'ely  spat'with Mr. James Craig, the secretary of the Trades and Labor Council,  in which he did not have by any  means altogether th'e b6st of it. in fact  the honors were ea-sily divided. MA.  W. A. Nettle put to him a few questions, as did Messrs. B. Tapping.'T. J.  Grahame and H. Edward*, after which  at about midnight the audience sang  the National Anthem and three very  faint cheers were given for.Mr.Martin.

The ml������-  chi���������f is for the most part done when  the warbles are discovered on the  animal's body, so that It is far better  to prevent the mischief by protecting  the animal against the fly, and this  can be done by smearing thc animal's  body, especially tho parts within reach  of its tongue, with strong smelling  oils, such as train oil, kerosene emulsion diluted, or rancid butter. Kerosene emulsion Is so standard a remedy  when diluted, for so many evils that  a description of it would not be amiss.  It is a mixture of one gallon of coal  oil or kerosene with hot soap suds,  (half gallon of rain water to quarter  pound of soap, and all being thoroughly churned together till It will adhere-  to thc surface of glass without oll-  iness.

Gregson,    pre&ldeiit  * of    the      North  West Entomological.   Society,   on  pernicious insects.     The chair was taken  by   John   Robinson,   president   of   the  Innisfail    Agricultural     Society,    supported  by  Henry  George.  M.

The   farmer  vas apt l-> look on entomology as an  abecure  and  even  displeasing  subject  ������n-which there Is.little to bo learnt of  tjjee to him in his business.     The entomologist works for the benefit ot the  ���������fiu-mer;  It did  not  require that  farm-  ���������asre should    be*    entomologists, but    It  *B*as Important that they give accurate  4ascriptloas   of   damage   done*  by   In-  ���������ects.   They are bettor-able to do this  than to give an  expert description of  Eha Insect doing thc damage, and from  the  nature  of  tho   Injury   the  sort   or  ���������tj-medy applicable could be ascortoln-  +d.     The -**pc*:iker  then explained  the  bablts  of   various  insects  particularly  affecting   the  North     West,   and     the  characv-ri.tic   damage   done  by   each,  and  .showed   that,   as  a  general   rule,  the   kind  of  inseel  could   li-.*    deduced  from    the    nature    of      the     damage.  Among   the    particular   ins'-Rts   which  Mr.  Greg_on  dealt  wilh   in detail  wm,  Uie ox-waibU*.     He gave aome statistics   of   thi.-,   pest   In   connection   with  osrtain cattle   dl.<trlctn   in  the  Stales,  showing  h'.v.     .-i-rlftus   this    pest   was  Able    to  become    ir  unchecked.

The damage  the warble does to  bides dock?  tht-in of one third  of the  Vrlce  they   would  fetch   If sound,  and  as  our hides    are  now    being  largely  shipped   to   England,   we   should   see  that  tbe  rijmtalion  of  the Territories  are not  Impaired  by any  shipment of  warbled   hide-.**-.       The-     beef     also   of  warbled   animal,    is   s,o   inferior   that  buyers  of  best meal   (for hotel!*,  etc.)  ���������grill  not on any account  buy carcases  showing   traces   of   wnrl.l1*.   This'beef  therefore has  lo be sold  at a  reduced  flguro.  the loss on    warbled    carcases  being  from   J2.00    to   $r..00  per    head.  Our    exports    j-hould   'never    Include  warbled beef or  the* reputation or the  caycntiy t-'H suffer.     In dairy fanning  it   Is estimated   that    n warbled    cow  gives 10 p:r    cent  less  in quantity  of  ���������milk,   and     the   quality    of   the   milk  also la deteriorated to lhe extent of 10  per    c?nt.        Tt   Is    therefore    surely  worth while foi- ihe farmer to prevent  equivalent and do it honestly. They  are excluded not because they are bad,  but because they are too good. The  chief reason, I suppose, for the agitation against thc Chinese coming to  the United States was because our  workmen came here and competed  with the white laborers and worked  cheaper. Is that a good reason for  excluding them, and are Americans  consistent? Why should the Chinese  be singled out and excluded when  others aro allowed to come and compete? Of course, the American people  arc free to adopt any restiictlve policy  they may like, but to bo consistent  they ought to exclude all classes of  laborers who come here, lo compete  with American laborers. But Chinese  laborers are singled out because our  government has not exorcised lis  privilege of opposing tnis discrimination.. The Italians and Hungarians  who come here are not better than  Chinese laborers, and it is hard to see  ���������why they should be admitted and the  Chinese   excluded.  The avowed object of tho exclusion  bill was simply to exclude Chinese  laborers, but the restriction has now  been extended to other classes. There  was some reason, perhaps���������I do . not  say just reason���������for excluding Chinese  laborers, based on the tn:-aty negotiated in 1SS0 for the purpose o������ limiting the coming of Chinese laborera to  the United Spates. It is expressly  stated   In    that   treaty   that   this   re  an ecru tone and powdered with small  gay flowers. The inside of the box Is dl-"  vided iuto three compartments to hold  pictures of various sizes, the under Bide  ot the cover being also prepared to hold"  photographs that can be thrust In tho  plaited folds of silk.  When tho table is on exhibition, the  lid is ralaed, disclosing an army of pictures. By this means tho photographs  are perfectly protected, and yet easily  accessible, with their preservation tn an  economical place secured���������three essentials in the care of lhe numerous handsome photographs thnt accumulate in every home.

The Cordik locations  and force numbering about 15,0(10 men.  are spread over ridges in contemplation of a British advance through- the  West Bank valley, north of Ladysmith which, has not been occupied.  The Boer patrols are very tired and  are constantly laying traps.

To the Editor of The Herald:  Sir: .Will you kindly permit me to  make known to your readers that the  statement made recently at a meeting at Scarborough to the effect that  "horses after being wounded ln battle  are not abandoned to lingering suffering and a slow death" Is Incorrect and  misleading. It Is a matter of fact  that badly wounded hordes are abandoned ln time of war to lingering  suffering and a slow death, whenever  their masters have not the time or the  opportunity to shoot them, that Is  whenever such action would Involve  risk to human life. The appended  letter from the under secretary of  state for war shows that the authorities of the war office recognize what  happens on the battlefield and recommend that efforts be made to obtain  the extension of the terms ot the Geneva convention to those who may go  out after an engagement to relieve  the suffering of wounded animals.  Among letters received from officers  of cavalry regiments now at the  front, is the'following: "I think that  whereever possible-, badly wounded  horses are destroyed on the battlefield. Personally I have shot, or have  had shot, several! and have given  orders that all badly wounded horses  should be destroyed by the men, and  I think thnt this Is generally done  throughout the service. Of course  there are many cases where It Is Impossible to carry 'this out, when, for  Instance, cavalry have to retire under  heavy musketry fire, which I -am  sorry to say Is often the case." What  Is said by an officer of a cavalry regiment is confirmed by officers of artillery and transport corps. Indeed  there is rno doubt that very often ln  existing circumstances animals wounded on the battlefield are not and cannot be attended to. AU this would be  altered if "the terms of the Geneva  convention were extended. Persons  who go out to treat the wounded men  are protected. Why should not those  who go out to care for wounded animals, to whom we owe so much, be  protected also? ' It has been said that  man Is God of the horse; dotes not the  cry come", to us from the battlefield:  "My God! my God! why hast Thou  forsaken me?"   ' '    ' .  ���������    .."Yours faithfully,  -      *   LAWRENCE W.  PIKE.  Furzebrook, Wareham, March 19, 1900.  Copy of letter from the under secretary of state for war:    ,  Dear Sir: .The secretary of state  has carefully considered your letter,  and has asked .military advice upon  it. Ho is Informed that it would be  impracticable 'to .take into the field a  special-corps such as your correspond-'  ents have suggested, -who would not  be covered by the Geneva -_ convention, and would nevertheless be non-*  combatants; - and* even if they were  taken into the, field they would not be  able to do anything' for the horses  which could not be done equally well  by the soldiers themselves. He Is also  informed that soldiers always shoot  badly wounded horses after or during  a battle whenever" they are given time  to do so, i..e., whenever the operation  does not involve * risk . to human - life.  He fears that no more than this can  be done unless and ..until" Borne International convention^ extends, to those  who care for wounded; animals; the  same protection which 'the Geneva,  convention provides in the case of  men; and he would" suggest that you  should turn your efforts in that direction.

Headed  by the hand, playing the Dead March,  the long cortege wound its wav under  the biiahtafternoon skies from Fred.  Somes' residence to the Presbyterian  church. Behind the band came the  Oddfellows, the Orangemen, the  Brotherhood of Firemen and the  Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers.  Th-Mi came the. heavse containing the  biiflin. the top of which was covered  with beautiful, flower.*-.. The pal!-  beaii r* were XV. G. Birney and Ed.  Adair for the Orangemen, H. Douelly  and P.

'Behind the hearse en me a long lit e  of vehicles; in the first* of which were  seated Mrs. Somes, the dead man's  mother. Mis. Fie.l Somesand his* firec  brothers.

Arriving at-the church, which was  crowded to its utmost capacity,  service was conducted by Rev. Mr.  Calder of Pender Island.  The choir sang three hymns with  very pleasing and impressive elfe*_t,  "Jesu, Lover of my Soul," "O, Paradise" and '-Asleep in Jesus." After  the services in the church, the funeral  cortege wended its way lo the ceme-  "Tery,-wiien the remains weie commit-  "ted to the earth next the grave of the  dead man's wife. Besides the prayers  offered at the grave by Mr. Calder,  the Oddfellows aiul the Brotherhood  of Firemen held the solemn burial  services of their order there. So his  brethren and comrades laid the body  ot their brother to rest with ceremonies,-is striking and impressive as  were ever witnessed in Revelstoke.  aBmmBBBmmmmmmmaummmmmmai^sma  Air. Martin's attack on M.t. Taylor  ��������� n his speech on Saturday waa grossly  unfair, as could very easily have been  shown on the spot had Mr. Taylor's  friends had any real oppovlunity. He  tried to ini'ilcu out that Mr. Taylor had  repudiated both the eight hour day  and government ownership of rail  ways, planks in the Conservative  platform. Let us take the first. Mr.  Taylor's position is a very simple one.  He is in favor of an eight hour day foi  all kind* of labor and therein goes  further than Mr. Martin himself, win  distinctly said that he wns not prepared  to enact a general eight hour law in  answer to one of Mr.Craig's questions.  But Mr. Taylor does not 'believe thai  because eight hours should bo thi  legal day that a man should be "ubso  lutely forbidden to work overtime. Hi  considers that he should be allowed to  make the best bargain possible foi  overtime with liis employers, regarding tho wage question as one best left  alone by the legislature. It seems tithe Hkrald that this very position  wilh regard to a general eight hour  law is precisely similar to that pi*t>*  posed to be taken with regard to the  eight hour law for underground  miners by Mr. Martin. In his platform, touching on this point, he  stated: " If any modifications can be  made removing any of the friction  brought about, without impairing the  principle, of the law, they will be  adopted. "It is difficult to assign a  definite meaning to these words except  that overtime would lie allowed, 'while  keeping eight hours as t.he legal day's  work for a day's wage.  On the second point Mr.  Martin by  straining    a    highly   condensed and  imperfect   report   of    seme    remarks  made by Mr. Taylor at  Trout Lake  City endeavored to twist Mr.  Taylor's  position into opposition togoyernment  ownership of railways.     Mr. Taylor is  reported   its   comparing   his   position  with   Mr. Martin's   on   this   question.  Now Mr. Martin proposes to adopt a  system   of    government constructir n  and   operation  of railways generally  and : 8 a  specillc instance proposes to  immediately commence the construe  tion of a'  railway from   the  coast  to  Kootenay.   But with  regard  to  this  line,   the   construction   of   which  he  proposes to start immediately, he  has  not, as   he   was   forced   to   admit   at  Ashcroft, the smallest idea whether it  will cosl five, ten or twenty millions ot  dollars, and has   not   even   a.  survey  before him so as tu   be   sure   that  its-  construction'    is     even     practicable.  Surely it does not .follow :that a; man  who cannot all at once see eye to eye  with Mr. Martin  on such  a   nebulous  scheme    as     this,     is    therefore an  opponent of the. government,  ownership   of   railways.       Mi*.     Taylor    is  nothing of the kind.     lie is a. strong  supporter of the  principle  of  government ownership and strongly opposed  to the old bonus system.  He believes, as Mr. Martin according  to another plank in his platform, also  believes, that any assistance rendered  tu lailwiiys by the province should  take=th"e;form-of-an-_ictnal-pm*ch.>u*e-of-  stock in the company. He is not.  however, prepared to extend his  advocacy of the idea of government  ownership so far as to pledge himself  to construct ������������������_'��������� road without knowing  whether it can be built or not or what,  it-w.iU.c.os.t.__.if_it,J.8j)uilt_.__The Herald  thinks Mr. Taylor's hesitation on this  point is very natural and likely to  commend itself to the common sense  of the electorate. The gross unfairness of Mr. Martin's attempt to brand  him on this account as an opponent of  the government ownership of railways  must be obvious to anybody.  ges  Large  Consignment  Just Arrived  INCLUDING  Carriage Sponges  25c to T5c  Wool Spanges, 10c to 75c  Mediterranean Sponges  10c to $1.50  Manruka Sponges  $1.50 to $5.00  Red Gross  DRUGSTORE  Geo.
