C,  TUESDAY,    SEPTEMBER   23, 1900.  $2.00 a Year in Advance.  f  ������:  v  OiV������ F������4G Ofi TTO  ANOTHER BIG LOT OF  THE CELEBRATED  Slater Shoes  ���������JUST IN���������  ANY SIZE OR SHAPE YOU  WANT.  There is satisfaction in the  looks of a Shoe  but tho ���������wearing" quality )s  the main point.  Shoes built to  look well, don't  always feel as  well. The great  trouble is with  the SHOE, not  the foot.  Our Shoes will  fit the feet.  They look well  ^feel~ wellr^andr  wear well, for  they are made  well.  Is there or is then' mil. to he only  one Hap; in this country ? The muster  ol' the Laurier administration.- Israel  T.n-te, seems to be slaking his own  and his party's political existence on  this question. He denounces Hugh  John jUaedonald for holding the  opinion Unit, theie should he only one.  Spunking at Montreal last Friday he  accused him of intolerance for ei'.lei-  laining this principle    He saiil :  "When Hugh John M.iednnnld was  in Montreal he Inul never said I lint  the French flair should he banished  from Canada, hut as soon :is he had  Hul into Ontario ho had proceeded lo  appeal to the prejudices of the people  and said that there should only lie one  (l.ur iu this country. (Cries of: 'Shame!  sha me!')"  So then in the opinion of  Mr. Tarte  and his JMon. ienl friends there should  he two Hags in Canada,  "the dear old  flag of France" and   the   Union   Jack  and to slate that I here should he only  one is a shametu! tiling to do.   This is  the     issue,     which   Mr.    Taito     has  delilier.itely  chosen lo   make  at   the  very moment when   the   Empiru   lias  heen wm ned liy its-great CoroifTii   minister. Lord Salisbury, 'to   lie prepared  fur the worst and every  political  sign  points unmistakeably to the  fact  lhat  what he had   in   liis   mind   was -the  possibility of a conflict with France.  Mr. Tarte is permit ted by  the  alumd-  anL lihi'i'tv which  British   institutions  have conferred upon him and  his   like  t." advance almost, any politiL.il proposition however exliavaganl.     lie  can  even abuse tli.it ii-eedontn in a frantic  attempt lo deslroy it, such as those of  his   kidney   in    Cape    Colony     we're  recently engaged in.    But his delibei-  ale  utterance-!   surely cry    iloud   in  warning to loyal hearted Canadians to  be very careful how "tliey again render  llieir support   to   an   adininislraticn,  wliich is so entirely dominated by.Mr.  Tin te as is the present line.   He  himself has chosen to make,   an   issue  fur  this campaign, before whuh all  other  issues   either   of    administration     or  finance p-ile inlo insijrniiicntiL'e.    It is  a new issue.    Mr.  Tar if   himself has  made it. K������ one ever heard of it hcl'nie  he     broached    il.      When    lie     lirst  startled    Canada     by     hoisting     the  tricolor on   a   Canadian   government  s'lip   engaged   on   government   duty  even Mr. Tarte'-. worst enemies looked  upon the'porfortnance as u mere  freak  of eccentricity.. But it has gradually  hr'tn forced upon Iho attention of loyal  Canadians thai it was more than   this,  il great deal moie. *llwa.-a sign   ami  symbol of Mr. Tartu's conviction   lli.-il  tiiese two flags have   equal   rights   t"  exist in lhis Dominion.    But even mis  absurdity   in. times    of     peace     and  security   might   be   allowed   In   pass.  But these are not times  of peace aud  sei'iirily.    They are times when in Hie  opinion   of   men  like  Lord S.ili-Jbury,  whose words are   weighed   and   mean  all they imply, thu   Empire   i.s  about  to encounter a great  crisis.    In  sui h  times opinion soon runs   inlo   action.  Mer. are  quickly forced   tn   take   one  side 01 lhe other,    ln lhe event   of   a  war between thu  Empire   and France  Mr. Tarte, as lie himself said' in  Paris,  thinks there would he no necessity for  Canada to do anything   of  the   kind.  He would apparently haul down  both  the Union Jack and   the   tricolor anil  hoist'a drab colored standard  labelled  neutrality.    In what way   he proposes  lo persuade his French friends lo stay,  their-hands from an attack on such an  integral part of thu Empire as Canada7  if an opportunity oifenil itself, he lias  not explained.    But the   question   for  Mr. Tarte lo make quite  clear 'to' the  loyal electors   of   the- Dominion   aiid  which every elector  of tlie   Dominion  who claims to be a loyal subject of the  Empire should see that h'e does make  quite clear befoi;e they cast a  vote  to  again put Mr. Tarte at the real, if not  the nominal,  head of   niT.iirs   in   lhis  country,'is this: "Which of the two  Hugs he is preparing to fly in the event  of a French-invasion of   this   Dominion."  }l������������ar->.M*^.*������^-*?tf*-.^.P-.**P^^ K&������JHWI>.3&&&^?&&.&&WK*XH>&i *!  ���������&  Tlie Glory of A������t������mn which Nuture delays for cooler weather, art hns anticipated  and in a Store sense this is the richest, ripest, fullest time of Autumn.

RATHER HARD ON DEWEY  Manila Hero Did Not Sink the Spanish  Ships. Says Hobson  The Vancouver Province says: Bu\v-  ny did not sink the Spanish ships at  Manila, either before or after breakfast.  At least Lieut. Hobson���������Merr'unac  Hobson���������Mohsdii thu hem of leu  thousand osciiliilioi'S. say- so.  He saw the hulls of the fleet when  Ihe ships had been raised and taken to  Honjj Kong for repairs, and he says  that those hulls were uninjured below  the waterline, and the Spaniard.-  opened the valves, and scuttled the  ships themselves.  At lea-t, that is Hobson'.- statement  aud. as has been remarked, Ilolison  Oiight to know.  The fainous lieutenant .-in-ived here  yesterday, and was seen by the  Province reporter at lhe Iiolel Vancouver last, evening. Asked in what  condition he had lonnd the hulls of the  Ll.-i de Cuba, Ihu Isla de Luzon, and  tiie rest of the fleet when he uriived  at Hong Kon;r lo superintend lepair-  ini< operations, he said :  "The damage to i.he hulls was mainly  the result of lhe six mouth's submersion. The upper works had been  badly damaged by fire, ihe woodwork  having been destroyed and , the iron  plates heing badly twisted by llie  heat."  "And what in your opinion, lieutenant," he was asked, "was the direct  cause of the foundering of tlie vessels?-'  "Oh, tlie Spaniards pulled out the  plugs and opened the valves. They  sank the ships themselves. Our shell  lire did very little damage."   -  "Then they weie not injured below  thu water line?"  "Very little. We had practicilly  done them no damage theie at all."  STRANGE AHD  GHASTLY FiHD  Made   in -the   Depths  Of  ar.    Alaskan  Forest By a Canadian Survey Party."  Dining last-month" while, working  near the old Juneau I rail, in a dense  forest, about oti������ hundred miles from  lhe coast, where it was thought white  men had never been before. Ihesurvey-  ingpait'y of Ihe 'Dominion Gm-ein-  meiit'telegraph line from Vancouver  to Da'w'son that was several days ahead  of the pole and wire men, made a  strange' and ghastly discovery. , As  they were-working their way thiougli  the forest they fame to a heavily  timbeied marsh, ,-ind near, the" centre  of this maish they suddenly came  upon 11 tract of several acres on whicli  the timber had been cut. Near one  side of tlie cleaving was 11 saw mill, still  ina good si:ite of preservation. The  machinery had evidently not been  disturbed since these premises were  vacated by the operators. With the  exception of a little rust on some of  bearings.the engine seemed to be ready  to fife up -and start at a. moment's  notice. The boiler was iu good condition, and in different parts of the  mill were cross-cnl saws, cam hooks,  axes, beetles, wedges, a blacksmith's  forge witli all ils appurtenances, a kit  of carpenter's tools and other implements used around a completely  equipped saw mill. The lumber of  the mill itself had evidently been cut  on the spot, and there were several  thousand feet of lumber which,- lo all  appearances, had been 1 ut about three  .years  %  CAPTURED A CONVOY  Report of Commander   Theron's   Death"  Confirmed.

PREPARING FOR WAR  Feverish Activity In the French Military  and    Naval    Departments   Along  the  Coast Of the English Channel.  Arnold White, the author,   wiiting  to tlie Philadelphia Ledger from  Lon-"  don says:  Enormous stocks of steam coal have  heen laid in at all the ports and arsenals"  of France.    The 1101 III coast is stocked  witli     immense     supplies"    of     fuel..'  Emplacements   for  guns   have    been,  established all along the littoral,  from  Calais   to   Brest,   Target   practice   is"  carried on in the channel every  morning at sunrise, the targets being towed  out in the night in  readiness, so  that*  no time should be lost in gun practice.  There are signs of feverish activity  in.  the preparation for war.   The porlj of  Calais   has    been    made    immensely  strong,    One  Creir/.ot   gun   has, been  mounted,   which   exceeds    in     range  anything yet known in modern artillery.    Men of war are stationed at the  northei n ports, where,   until   two   or  three mouths ago. no war vessels were  ever seen.    The north coast is  prickly  witn torpedo stations.    The fleet has",  been brought up to n higher slate  of  efficiency     than    has-   prevailed    for  many rears past, while  the enormous  purchases of coal,  which continue  up-  to this week, point to activity iu some  direction not necessarily contemplated "  in the latitude of London.  to  :   ENGLAND AHD FRANCE  Vague .Rumors   of   War   Continue  Drift-Across the Channel.  The London   correspondent  of   the  New York Herald says:  -  Vague rumors of war continue lo '  drift acioss the Channel fiom France."  This French war talk-is so persistent"  that it is difficult to believe that there  is not something in tiie air���������revolution  or war with England; Lhat is -the es-'  sence of it. ;  An American who is far  from being  mad makes this prediction: Before the .  end of lhe   year   the   Nationalists   of  France will overturn the Government.,  or the Government to save itself will"  go to war with England.  This American "alarmist  has    lived  for years in Fiance, has held positions'  in tlie diplomatic service, and  has   an '.  intimate acquaintance  with some   ot  the   leaders   of   the   new   Nationalist  party.

General Merchants  Revelstoke, B.O  Near the sawmill was a shed that  had evidently been used for horses,  and at intervals of a few. feet around  the shed were the skeletons uf twelve  horses, most, of them, judging from  the bones, being huge animal's-. The  bones w,ere entirely free from flesh,  indicating that they had been there at  least two Mitniner.-'. They were lying  in such positions as to thnw that they  bad never been disturbed liy men.  Lying beside skeletons were weather-  beaten ropes and straps, the remain-***  of the pack blankets and a rpnintity of  half decayed flour and other provisions  thai, had rolled Irom Lhe backs of the  hor.-es.  Neai the mill were lliree small cabins  constructed of log-and sawed lumber,  a id carefully slowed away was ,1 tjiiau-  t'uy of provisions, canned goods, bacon,  and flour. The bunks on thc walls  contained a small amount of bedding,  and a grindstone and several pairs of  overalls were found in one corner of  one of them.  Search was made, but 11.1 human  skeletons were found. Tlie discoverv  was made about -10 miles oir the old  J-.incau Indian trail, anil all conditions  point to the conclusion that the clearing was made three yenrs ago. and tjn.-  bois-es perished lhe latter part of the  same season. The tiees were blazed  on four sides, indicating that the  parly iu some mysterious way bad  separated, and were unable to  together again.. The members of the  surveying pin ty think thai if the forest  were searched the skeletons of the  former owners of the camp would he  found. The theory of murder by the  Indians is not entertained, for iu that  case the provisions and tools would  surely have been taken, it is estimat  ed that the engine, boiler, circular saw  and the rest of the mill outfit, when  new, must have cost at least ,?3.IX>J.  he a revolution, that the army  would"1-  take   the   Government   and   tli.it. an "  Emperor would be chosen."

Travellers in France have been  s:n prised to seeth.it the troops- hive,  been withdrawn from tlie German  frontier and distributed near tlie  Channel coast. Whatever ::iny be the  intention of ihe French Government,  it cannot be questioned that, the 11-  public is prepared to  invade  England.

HOW   THE   FARMER   WAS SWINDLED  The following arraignment of the  government does not emanate from a  llnnparvatlvo leader or from a Conservative newspaper. Strangely  enough, it conies from a one time supporter ot Kir v.'Pfrid Laurier, viz.. the  Huntingdon Clean.-r, and as such 11 is  ���������well worthy of perusal by everyone,  ���������who. lik" tie' o.'-ior of the Gleaner,  voted for S: '.V'.lfiid ln 1806. The  Gleaner  in a  recent  issue says:  "A������.1  (. l" uli electors,   no  class have  >>.--]'   .-o     si cr.icluly  wronged    :ia   the  farmers. Their loil is hard, their earnings sn-ia'".. anil when lhe Laurier government went into office they believed  their   long   cherished   hope,   that   the  country  would  be   ruled   in   their  interest, was about to be realized.   During the past    four    years    they have  learned  that tlie manufacturer's little  ger has more weight than their hand,  and that  the contractor and the railway schemer can  blind  the  eye   that  ought to regard their condition.     The  farmer rises in tlie morning to feed his  team,  of- the iron of whose shoes the  Laurier  government levies  a  duty of  3*0 per cent: after breakfast, at which  he uraWc coffee taxed 10 per cent out  s. cup protected 30 per cent, he .yokes  his  horses   to an  American  reaper on  which 20 per cent duty has been paid:  at dinner time his wife varies his diet  with a pudding made of rice on which  a duty  of  one    and    a. quarter cents  a. pound  has been  paid:  before going  back to  the field    he    fastens    a few  loose boards with  nails whose  maker  has  30  per  cent protection,  and   takes  with him to repair a fence some wire  with  15   per  cent  protection.      In  the  afternoon his wife goes  to the village  and buys flannel to make him shirts,  on which the duty is 35 per cent, and  a  pair of  socks on  which  the    same  ���������duty_i.---_^evled.���������On -cotton-for-a-dross  for her child she pays 35 per cent, and  on   the   spool  to   sew   it  25   per  cent.  {It her purchases are of British manufacture    the    duty  Is    a  third    less).  Needing some sugar for supper she gets  it and pays more    than    lt is  worth,  because   the   Montreal   millionaire   refiners  have protection of over a cent  ���������a pound.     The day's  work    over,  tho  husband  calls      for      the  newspaper,  printed on paper whose manufacturer  in  prot-rct-xl by 25  per cent -duty,  and  reads il by the light of of a lamp filled  with   oil   for   which   his   wife   Daid   25  cents  a  gallon,  and    which    can    be  bought on the    American   side for 10  cents a gallon.  "The farmer Is robbed of his honest  earnings to pubsidlze manufacturers,  and all this is at the close of four  years' rule by a government that entered office under a distinct pledge  to give the country a revenue tariff.  "���������When our friends turn against us.  who is there to comfort us?"  HOW THE  MONEV GOES  Mr. Fielding has Just announced at  Halifax that the expenditure for llie  year ending June 30. 1900. reached  $52,713,809.  This includes the two classes of outlays those charged to revenue and  those chalked up agalst the debt.  Here is a comparison of the extravagant Tory and the economical Liberal expenditures:  Under Conservatives.  1592    1593    1594    1SS5    1S96    $42,272  130  ���������10.S5-J  727  43.00S  233  42.S72  o3S  41,702  3S3  S!42,072  775  45,334  2S1  51,512  ,035  52,713  ,S10  Under Liberals.  1S97    1S9S    1S99    1900    Notice how the outlays decreased  from 1S94 to 1S9C, and again how they  have jumped up from 1S96 to 1900.  Then remember lhat as Laurier  contemplated the Conservative figures  ho promised to reduce tlicui by four  millions.  It is fortunate for J. Israel Turte  that he is master of two languages.  He could never free himself of his  surging thoughts if lie had only one of  them  at  his command.  Oom Paul Kruger musi be a man  of very fickle tendtneies, judging by  his inability to choose a site for a  capital that will satisfy him for moro  than 24 hours at a time.  The Huntingdon Gleaner (Old Liberal) asks Sir Richard Cartwright to explain how it is that the new Liberal  government at Ottawa has spent  evirry dollar of the 26 millions of increased revenue, and yet "simk the  Dominion seven million dollars deeper  in~debtT"~"-*.Vbnder"iri!U-\v:ll r      =  If any additional evidence were  needed to prove that the appearance of  Hush John Macdonald in the Dominion contest is a good thing from the  stanooi'it of Liberal Conservative success, it might easily be secured by a  perusal of Grit papers. No event so  far in the campaign has caused such  widespread consternation in the Grit  camp. From end to end of the coimtrv  Grit editors arc making every effort  to belittle Hugh John and his chancew  of success against Sifton. if the ap-  Iiearanoe of the premier of Manitoba  with Sir Charles Tupper In the Dominion campaign Is an event of such  small Importance as the Grit press  would have the people believe why  make hu much fusa over It?  IIH  WOULD  NOT SPKCLT.ATK  WHAT TRUSTS HAVE DONE  Here are a few of the reasons why  the "plain people" are not inclined to  meekly accept the inspired statements  of the trusts organs and speaker.*-;,  showing what a necessary and bene-  ficient institution the trust is:  It requires .",0 per cent more wheat  lo buy a stove than it did in 1S96.  Jt requires 20 bushels more corn to  buy n wagon than it did in ISM.  "Jl requires a 100 per cent more corn  ���������or wheat to buy a copper kettle than  it  did  in  1S96.  It requires twice as much corn to  buy a coil of rope as in 1896.  It requires 40 per cent more grain.  to buy a hoe, a rake or a shovel than  il did in  1895.  A set of common wheels that cost  57.00 in 1896, now costs J12.00.  The price of cultivators and other  ���������farm implements has gone up proportionately. _  Iowa i.'onc;ressm.i.n Who Never Had  M.iili'y  Enough  lo  Huy  Stock:-.-.  t.'oner<issman Hepburn, of Town, was  sittint," in n. group nf public men the  other day listening to tnlk of stocks  and  bonds and   spc-enliition.

Morden had fallen overboard from the  yacht Clytle, on the way from Koch-ester last night, and although life  preservers were thrown him he dlsnp-  _ i peared in the storm.  Tom   said   he  guessed   it  would   he  all right when  his luck changed.  He  was a  most unlucky  follow.    In .the  neighborhood was a saying,  "As bad  as Tom's luck."   And what a. philosopher an unlucky young fellow Is likely  to be.    I know that some mon,    and  those, too who profess to be thinkers,  have said that a young fellow's belief  in  thc  ultimate   change of luck  was  the leaping of youth within him. but  I have known old men who, in resignation,  waited  for a  change  In   tln>  current of their fortues.   And the fact  that a   change  for  the  better   is   onG  of the rarest things hi the world did  not seem to  cool  thaii'  hope.  Everybody said that Tom's luck was hopeless.    And to look at him you would  never have  taken  him  to  be  so  unlucky.    He  was  lucky���������  there   is no  mistake on that  point���������but the  girls  don't  take  to  him.    Once  a crabbed  woman reproached  him with it.    and  with  his always liowing good  nature  he replied:     "Yes,  that  may he  true  now��������� they don't seem  to have    any  use  for me,  but  it will   bo all right  when my luck changes."   The woman  tossed her head:  "Luck change indeed  said she. "You were born unlucky and  you can never change it.    How is the  Pine colt your uncle gave you?"  "Well, I don't know how it happened, hut ho broke his leg aud we had  to kill him."  The woman laughed. "And it will  always he that way, Tom. My husband was just like you."  "Don't you think." said Tom, with  a twinkling oye. , "that he was still-  more so?"  He was standing at Uie fence  watching the woman as she swept the  yard. She lifted the broom and  struck at him, but it was a humorous  blow and did him no harm. "Take  yourself off," she commanded. "You  are-enough to provoke a saint,"  Thiswotnan was getting ready for  summer boarders. Of late years, her  luck had undergone a change. When  Pete Miller���������that was her liusbtnd���������  when Peto died her luck was changed  and so was his, perhaps. At any  rate the patronage o������ her Farm Homo  began to improve. And this year her  boarders began to arrive early, and  among them was a stately woman  and her daughter, as handsome n  creature as a violet ever leaned from  behind a rock to peep at. in envy.  And her name was Violet. Of course  it was Tom's ill-luck to meet her.  Many who had long ago forgotten how  desperate it is for a young fellow to  he stabbed through, the heart with a  spear from an eye, smiled when they  saw him hanging around her. and  particularly when they saw that the  mother gave him cold looks. Tom  stepped under a shed where a group  of-men sat during a shower of rain,  and one fellow asked: "How are  you getting along. Tom?"  "Not so very well, bull think it will  lie all right when my luck changes,  and somehow I'm expecting lt to  change pretty soon now.'  "I would think that just about now  is when you would want it to change,  said a man. winking at his neighbor.  "Why now more than at any other  time?" the neighbor asked, knowing  full  well, and winking in his  turn.  Tom turned imon him with an appealing look. 'Gentlemen." said he.  "I know I am nothing but a joke  among you. but there are some things  a little too sacred to be joked about."  And he walked forth in the rain and  the men tittered. All but one, a youth  iu whose soul a candle was burning,  and he followed Tom. and coming up  beside him, said:  "I'm sorry, Tom'"  Tom. without looking around, felt  for his hand, found it. and holding it.  replied,  "T  thank you.  Jim."  "Tom, I guess the trouble lies In  the fact that she's got money."  "No, it lies in the fact that my luck  has not changed yet."  "But don't you believe it will?"  "Yes. when t forget her. that will  he a change, and it's tho one that  I'm praying for. Isn't lt awful for a  man to have been born���������and their to  have his "own her.rt finish the matter  by withering ud?"  "Yes. it's as* had as anything could  be.   What are you going to do, Tom."  "I  have  made  up   my  mind   to   go  into tho army���������to the Philippines."  "And I bet anything you come back  a captain or a colonel, and then they''l  know your luck has changed."  He joined the army, and the neighbors searched the newspapers to see  if his luck had changed, but not once  did they find hi3 name. He was cone  neariv-two-years-and then, he.came.  home.without having been promoted,  and there was a hem and a haw  among the neighbors. Tom was sun-  browned, but his health was good  and his hope had not decayed for he  was heard to say that everything  would come all right when his luck  changed, and he was looking for it  every day. He had saved up a  small sum of money, and bought an  interest ln a grist mill, but the mill  blew up shortly afterward, and when  the news spread people actually laughed, and a satirical chan named Josh  Barnes was delivering a harangue on  tho subject as Tom came along. Josh  was courteous enough to leave ofT. hut  he turned to Tom nnd asked about, his  luck.  "Well, it's not as good just now  as I would wish, but I think I have  good reason to believe that it will  change  before  Ions."  "Why.  have you   been  seeing    the  new moon over your right shoulder?'"  "No,   it's   not   that    or    any   other  superstitious   sign���������it's   just   the' way  I  feel."  "Understand your mill blew up last  night?"  "Yes���������and wc had expected to make  some money out of it. but I don't  suppose it was time. We have to  wait for our luck, 7011  know.  One day Jim told Tom that Voilet  and her mother were in tho neighborhood. "Don't yon think you'd bettor  go away?" said Jim.  "Yes. r bt-licve f will, and stay  away till my luck changes���������in a certain way. you know. Thc fact Is, I  haven't  learned   to   forget  her."  Tom turned off into the woods, n  nearer way home, and had not pro-  ceded fur on the path when his heart  seemed to tip-toe high and to Bink  low and to pant for suddenly ho saw  Violet coming toward him. She came  laughing and hold out her hand to  him nnd he touched it. and drew back  his hand nnd stammered, and she  laughed, looking him slraight In the  eye. "Why, how long you have heen  gone." flhn said. "And did you kill  anyone 7"  "T did what I thought was my duty"  he replied, looking down and growing  red. "A fellow shot at mc three times  beforo I could tell where lhe shot came  Trom,and at last I saw him up In a  tree, and took aim. and���������did you  ever sec a squirrel shot out of a tree?"  "Oh, and you killed him. didn't you?  "Well, he didn't kill me. But I  didrit hurt him. Miss Violet��������� shot  him   straight  through  the  head, 'and  I was glad, too. for I would hate to  hurt a fellow, and a stranger at that."  "You are a funny man. Come   and  walk over with me." ���������  "Well.I don't know. The woman who  keeps your Farm Home always laughs  at me, and I dont care to see her  again���������till  my  luck  changen."  "Oh, and hasn't your luck changed  yot?"  "No, but I've got a good strong hope  of it chancing in every way except  ono."  "What's that one?"  "I wanted to forgot something,   and  thought luck might favor me In that  way,  but'lt hasn't and I'm  afraid it  won't.'-  "Forget something! Does remembering something give you so much  trouble?"  "Yes, 80 much so that if It was to  do over again 1 would let that fellow  in the tree take a few more shots at  me."  "You must have done something  awfully bad."  "Yes, I did.    I Tell In lovo"  "Is that so bad?"  "Yes. in my case. She does not lovo  mo."  "Have you asked herT"  "No, I was waiting for my luck to  change, and, besides that, her mother  looked at me with frost in her eyes,  becauso she has money, and. ot  course, hates me."  "Dut lt would not ho good luck If  you could forget the girl" "  "You   don't   know    what  you  any,  Miss Violet.    You  don't know  how I  lovo her.'  "But I know she loves���������you.'  ���������       *       ���������       ������  "Well, lt heats all," said Josh  Barnes. 'They tell me that they kept  her away from fashionable resorts,  afraid she would fall ln love with  some one, and here she comes���������"  "And changes a good fellow's luck,"  said Jim. in whose soul a candle was  still burning.

Mr. Murray found that In many,  cases dairy butter had been packed jn  creamery boxes, which when opened;  were found to be   damaged, owing to  carelcs  and improper packing.' This  visibly hurt the . sale of Manitoba  creamery nutter, as lt was taken by  the purchasers for granted that this  butter was tho output of some or other  of  tho Manitoba creameries.  Tho creamery butter was found on  the whole to bo satisfactory and with  proper handling tt good trade In this  line could be  established.  At the present time It Is impossible  to discover who are tho cufpable parties ln regard to the packing of this  butter, as the butter could not be  traced back to tho maker. The butter  is received by wholesale men In Winnipeg rrom different points througn-  out tho province and la shlpepd by  them to the British Columbia mnrketa.  When complaint is made about a shipment Ihe Winnipeg man cannot ascertain from whom tho butter was originally purchased, as it may nave  passed through two or three other  hands befor reaching- him.  Mr. Murray is In favor of having  each box or tub of butter stencilled  with the maker's name and address,  in this way lt would be possible to  locate  the blame without delay.  The main portion of the cheese shipped from Manitoba to tlio British  Columbia markets was found to be  satisfactory. Some of tho grades,  especially the Young America, was,  however, very poor indeed. 'Por.jjspiJ  high flavored cheese Ontario cheese  sold much better than that of Ma-pi-  toba manufacture,  in British Columbia all shipments of  dairy products from east of Calgary  are generally regarded aa coming  from Manitoba. In this way Manitoba  products have to bear more than their  share of responslblity, for in very  many Instances dairy shipments from  points between Manitoba and Calgary  arrived at British Columbia warehouses in aa bad condition  lhat came from Manitoba.   o   lost in the export cattle business this  season. In .the early spring when stall  fed cattlo of choice quality were put  on the market prices were high and  the demand good: Dealers 'bought  largely, and, in most cases, made  good profits in the British markets.  Drovers throughout the country became zealous In purchasing stock.and  soon marketted all offerings. Other  cattle finished on grass, and entirely  grass fatted, inferior stock, were hustled out when prices were up. Suddenly the old country markets broke,  freight rates were advanced at a time  When the markets were on the decline. The result was that for tho  last week or two the cattle market at  Toronto has been very dull, some  days several buyers declining to bid  any price for cattle brought in for  export.  The export trade rules the market.  This condition, however, is .not taken  very seriously, as short periods of  depression usually occur at this season or the year. The high prices realized for Canadian cattle at the recent Chicago auction offer much encouragement to breeders of stock' cattlo throughout the Dominion, or CO  cattle offered tho average price paid  was almost $800 a head. For a choice  2-year-old thc sum of $2600 was paid,  while two others realized over $2000  each. These, sales are of vast benefit lo every stockraiser in Canada,  as they advertise the Dominion  for fine cattle aud thoroughbred stock.  J. M. SCOTT. B.A.. KUB  Barrister.

The business may be commenced in a small way, very soon,  hut it is expected that It will take  two years before everything is in  working order.  . Business throughout Ontario is  rather below normal at -the present.  As the harvesting continues it monopolizes tho attention of the farming  community. These conditions usually  cause a lull in trade centres. Soon,  however, deliveries of grain and other  products of the farm will become  liberal and money circulation will  begin to expand and payments improve. Cheese for export is attracting  considerable attention. Prices -have  advanced materially. Some d-ealers  are of the opinion that thc top has  not yet been reached. The British  markets are reported firm, and the  demand for Canadian makes is ever  increasing. Firm prices in cheese  naturally give rise to a scarcity of  butter, both dairy and creamery."The  creameries throughout the province  aro making practically no butter at  present. The Ontario farmer finds it  profitable to send milk to be made  into cheese and a falling oil in the  butter supply follows.

"1 Lhink you will all agree  wilh  me  whether you are Itet'orinei's.or Conservative." said Hugh John .Macdonald at.  1 Montreal "that, it is I lie duty of a party  : whether  Ciovei'iiinci'.t or   Opposition.  j when asking the elei'torate to * support  I hem to tell them plainly what the are  going to do. Tliis is one thing thai,  makes me proud to be ii Conservative.  Rightly or wrongly, lie theii- policy in  tlie. iiituresis of the right or noi, the  Conservatives have always lold the  people when asking I'or their support  exietly what, their policy  was.     Look  II LISTS, when they introduced their  National Police, when the House met  il was attacked hy men of great ability  like Alexander Aliickuiizu1," I'M wain  Blake, Richard CarLwrightand others.  They all talk of iL as bitterly as thoy  could find words in the Knglish  language 1.0 make an attack. Thoy  said il svas unworkable! Ihey said it  would ruin lhu country, they said it  would not produce tlie revenue thai  we expected from it. They found  every possible fault witli the policy,  but no one man ventured to say  because ho could not, thai iu introducing tlial. policy the Conservatives had  not carried out Lhe promise they had  made tin: people. . . . I iii.'iy tell  you Lhis that the policy of the Consor-  valive party does hoi change. I can Lell  you now, speaking as a humble  ��������� number of the party, that what we  fought for in 1878 in the shape of the  NaLional Policy is what we are fighting for Lo day.    We believe in proLecl-  ng our own inlerest. We believe in  protecting our own worlvingnien ���������we  think a man is enLil.led to a fair day's-.  wage for a fair day's work. Thai was  ihe Conservative policy in 1STS. and il  is the Con.-ei vative policy iu 1000. And  Lhere is no false note struck by any  prominent man on our side tu day.  Every man when addressing the  electors stales what the parly will do  if returned to power. You can judge  of the future by the past, and if we  return to power you may be sure you  will know what Lhe Conservative party  is going to do."  35������*-.������rs225'B!-.S������*^^^5^r'  In Dark Waters  In trouble or sickness people  sometimes pass through deep  and dark waters for lack of a  simple and a reliable remedy  at hand when needed.
