The great  trouble is with  the SHOE, not  the foot.  Our Shoes will  fit the feet.  They look well  _feel~well"an=d-  wear well, for  they are made  well  The Conservative Convention, which  will   open   here   tomorrow   morning,  will be held  under  auspices  as   favorable for the  sticcuss of   llie   party  as  can lie desired.   The recent announce-  niiHil that, Hugh John Miicilntmld has  consented' to reenter Federal  politics  has filled   every. Conservative in  tlie  west     witli   satisfaction.     With   Air.  Miii'ilnnnlil  as   Sir   Oh.ivies   Tupper'*;  lieutenant,     the      new,     piogressive  Conservatism of the. West, will for the  first time lie ulile to make itself felt  in  the counsels  of the party.  Western  Conservatism   is   not   tlie   hidebound  eiued   of   a government   caste.    Il,  is  rather a I'oriji of political   faith   which  believes   that     the     reform     of   our  pr.isent   social   conditions    will   have  eventually   to  come   through   one  of  our present ureal, political   parties and  that llie Conservative party is thc one  most, capable and likely  to  givo  it. to  tlie   country.    This   is   western   Conservatism,    though   it   is   a   phase  of  political belief  by   no   means entirely  confined to the wesl.   Tlie selection of  Hugh John i.lncrtouald by Sir  Charles  Tupper in   be his. right hand tnaii'and  second   in command   in    thu   coming  campaign proves  lli.lt.   llie   old   leader  .ici ngni'/.es    lhat   tliis phase   of   Con-  set vat ism   has   become   a   factor     of  importance in i.lie party and  must  lie  reckoned   '.villi   il.    In   tlie  new (,'on-  .-ervative   cabinet  which   will govern  Canada  Tor  tlie   next   few  years,   ihe  west,  and   weslern   feeling   will   have  a -powerful cxpi iienl in  lhe  person  of  Mr. jMacdun.ilil and will begin at 'once  to form n power.ul  educational   agent  within llie pari y ami lo train il for t lie  wnrk which it has   to  tin  if   it.   is  to  remain a vital lone  in   lite   Dominion  at     ail.

What are.we going lo do la Alberta  where our choice lies between an Independent and a straight Conservative 7  The minister of the interior then  look up thc relation of tho Liberals  in the Canadian Paciiic railway;  "Our policy is just this: We want  to treat tho C. P. R. ln just the same  business-like way as tlie government  would treat any other company.  "We did not approve of many of the  terms of the C. P. R. charter, nor do  we yet; but we are obliged to loyally  carry out the terms that Canada entered into."  Is that the way that Ur. Sifton  and his supporters talked to thc;  western fanners previous to the election,   of 1S96?  one should have credit for this; we do  not Ktich say such a result was intended or foreeen.

AN  UNSATISFACTORY   WITNESS  The Free Press has the effrontery to adduce Mr.Oiiver, the Liberal  candiadte for Alberta, as a man who  is satisfied with the manner In which  the present government has fulfilled  its tariff reform pledges, says the  "Winnipeg Telegram. Mr. Oliver discussing the new tariff in the house  of commons in 1S97. said:  "I wish to say that there are  features iu the tariff as it stands,  which are disappointing to the people when considered in relation to  the promises which have been made,  and the ideas that have been gathered from the past from the parly at  present in power."  Mr. Oliver also has condemned the  present tariff in detail, as well as  generally. For instance, in discussing the coal oil duty in the house of  commons iu 1S90. he said:  "Of the articles of taxation used in  this country, coal oil is one of the  articles that eaters very largely into  the consumption of the general people of the country; therefore, it is one  of the articles that should be taxed  below the average of a fair revenue  tariff. If we say that a fair basis o������  our tariff for revenue would he 20 per  cent or 25 per cent, .instead of coal  oil being protected by a duty of CG  per cent, its protection should be  something less than -0 or 25 per cent.  1 understand that the value of coal  oil is about S cents a gallon; the  duty is 5 cents a gallon and ihe percentage is 05 per cent.  Mr. Taylor : That is a good revenue  tariff!  Mr. Oliver:    1 claim that a duty of  2 cents per gallon would be the full  measure of protection which the coal  .oil industry is entitled to on a revenue  WSAT   THE    CHINESE   THINK OF US.  Mr. Stephen Bonsai, who was at one  lime svcreiury of the United States  legation and charge d'affaires in  Pekin, publishes an article ill the  North American Review for September, the object of which is lo show  "U'l-.al the- Chinese Think of lis."  Mr. Bonsai makes il clear that they  have not much cause to think very  well (it us; that our course toward  them lias been fitted to arouse their  suspicious and almost to justify their  resentment. That' their antipathy  toward the western missionaries is  not due io innate intolerance of  f< reign religious is shown by the fact  lhat tiie> have permitted th*: Mohammedans Cor centuries to worship Cod  acording to their own creed, and Uiat  a certain Christian church in Tekin���������  belonging to the Greek church���������has  never been molested. But. unfortunately, the action of the countries from  w'n'.eh the western missionaries come  hns rendc-'cd it difficult for them to  convince the Chinese that they are  completely innocent of political designs. Mr. Bonsai thinks that, in our  treatment of the Chinese, we have not  shown any particular desire to gain  their good opinion, and lie suggests a  change in our altitude to thorn:  "V.e have always treated the Chinese as though thoy were without feel-  ir^gs,   and   without   vanity,   pride   or  combativeness;    and    yet    every   one  who knows  them  will    tell  you   they  have   all   these   qualities.      "When  avc  are in a position to exact the punishment  ol'  the  men  who  fired  upon  our  legations,   whether they ,be princes of  the  Clan,   or  Boxers. .let us  listen   to  whal  the Chinese  have    tu say about"  the  bombardment   of   the  Taku   forts.  It   will   be   a   new   departure,   and   it  might work wonders.     "We might 'civilize'   the    Chinese    by showing them  some consideration and treating them  with common decency. The old pollcy  of knocking the Chinese over the head  has not brought satisfactory results���������  they  have too   many  heads.    A  common ground might be reached by admitting,   ror instance,   that   it  ly  possible for western admirals as for eastern princes and wild secretaries to do  in hot blood, things they never would  have been guilty of upon mature consideration.    If we do this, there will be  no  danger  of   war,   and   we  shall   be  spared   a  conflict   Into  which   no  one  ivho knows what it may come to mean  can  think  of    entering    with  a.  light  heart."  A  LESSON   IN   POLITICS  General sympathy will be felt for  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M. P. for Yale-  Ciii'iboii, who entered parliament four  years ago wealthy, and is now compelled to make an. assignment for the  bent-til of his creditors.  Mr. Bostock embarked on the sea of  polities, and devoted to the wants of  his constituents the time land money  which should have been devoted to his  own business. That he spent much  time and more, money in the endeavor  to satisfy ��������� his constituents and to  further the interests uf his poliical  party there can be no doubt, but  whether he will receive the gratitude  either of the party or the people is  another matter.  Politics is a dangerous game for  amateurs and the story of Mr. Bos-  tock's unfortunate experience furnishes an object lesson in the game.  Four years ago Mr. Bostock joined  tho Liberal firm as a partner wilh  capital. Today his partners have  ihe capital while he has the experience. Perhaps the latter will be of  more service  to him than the former.  A TRIP TO   TRIDDIS  tariff basis."  The Liberals promised the peoplo of  the West free coal oil. Mr. Oliver  says it still bears a protection of G(J  per cent, and calls upon the government to reduce it to at least 20 p.c.  This is how Mr. Oliver shows his  satisfaction with the manner in  -which the government has fulfilled  its promises o. "Free Trade as they  have it in England.' The fact that  Mr. Oliver is now running as a  "machine" candidate will not alter  the record of what h1. said when he  was posing as an independent Liberal. Before the Sifionlan organ can  tucce&sfully parade Mr. Oliver as an  admirer of the government's tariff  policy, it must suppress Hansard and  destroy the files ot ihe ICdmonton  Bulletin.  HUCH JOHN WILL WIN  Hugh John Macdonald has uiauCu.ly  accepted the offer made him by the  Conservatives of Brandon, and will  contest that constituency against  Hon. Clifford Sifton.  The action of Manitoba's premier is  characteristic of the man. Ever ready  to forward the interests of the party  with which his name is so closely as-  MR. SIFTON AT SHOAL LAKE.  Speaking at the Liberal convention  held at Shoal Lake on Monday  the minister of the Interior claimed  that there had been a reduction of  taxation amounting to fourteen per  Cent. "Now. said Mr. Sifton. an reported In the Brandon Sun. a Liberal  organ, "I am going to uhow you how  .much a reduction of fourteen dollars  on every hundred dollars of the  taxation is. You are a.11 practical men  and can see for yourselves. But Id  me say that this fourteen per cent Is  all tho difference there was between  Kir John A. Macdonald and Alexander  Mackenzie  in 1S78."  "Tou mav say you want a giviitcr  reduction than this fourteen per cent  reduction and this Z'i l-S per cent off  the total tariff. I want to point out  lhat there are only two possible governments in Canada, tht Lit-Crals and  the Conservatives. Tou have your  choice between Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and Sir Charles Tupper."  "If you do not support "Wilfrid  IJiurier'a candidate, that is. if you  vote for an Independent candidate or  a. Tupper candidate, you vote for high  tariff, you vote for the repeal of the  llritish preference, you vole for the  non-control of railways."  soclated he forsakes the luxury of  office and the fruits of victory to do  battle with the man who represents  the Liberal government in the West,  and in a constituency where Mr.  Sifton has already been returned no  loss than six times.  That Hugh John will succeed, there  can be very little doubt. The record  of his party us contrasted with that  of his opponent Is, of course, a powerful factor ln his favor, while his own  personality and . charm nt manner  make hundreds of friend:*! for him  everywhere he goes. Tlv lame apologies of the minister uf Interior fur  the studied neglect of tin., western  farmers will not l,,. nccept.-d l,y  thinking men. There Is no Justification at tin; present Juncture tn plead  for another li-rin of ollice, while ail-  mlttinj.' that pro-election pr.jrni.es had  been cast to the winds, and the voters  of lirntiilon will not be ai all ready to  rnak" cxcuscm for the party which hn*  on i-very ovcfisloti inrnr-il (.hcm down  for political reasons. :  Hugh John Is to be congratulated  on his pluck nnd determination. it  nny man cnn win In ftrandon he can;  and thr- general belief Is lhat he will.

Having not been  in lhe district since 1S01, a great  many changes are noticenble.  Settlers everywhere.l'ences.irrigation  ditches, magnificent crops and lots of  rat cattle. .' It would'repay any one  for a few days outing to go out with  Her Majesty's mail, which goes out  every Saturday, driven by Mr. Gillespie, who is more punctual even  than the (J. P. TC. The settlers are  now going to have a bridge wliich has  been a long felt want. Some of the  girders are laid at the crossing of the  river known as the Weasel Head, but  the road into it is not at all good, the  grade being too heavy.  Tbe cutting of the. green feed started  mi Tuesday at the Nithdisdale ranche,  the property of Messrs. Hunter, late  uf Diimt'rieshii-e, Scollaiia. The crops  on this rnnehc are very heavy, both  In onls and wheat, and ihe timothy  has been good, as can be seen from  the number of stacks. Their ranche  has un irrigation ditch, and the Hunters say they would not like to be  without it, for the crops would hot  amount to half what they do now.  Further up the creuk you come to  T'-dgar's ranche. Mis crops are good,  and getting ready for the McCormick.  Also Mr. Patterson's, who has a considerable acreage under crop, and like  tlie Hunters. I'.dgar ha.3 quiti.' a number of acres under cultivation.  Further on again you see in-the distance the school and church, and last  but not least the large hall which  was erected last year by the settlers,.  Il would be a credit t-j a town. I was  shown the interior of the building by  Secretary AVoolling.. and was struck  by the appearance Inside. There are  a couple of rooms 'and a large lunch  hai at Up. end of the building, and  the only thing lacking to have music  is some one io play the c-xrelleP.l  piano which adorns  the inside.  The hall managers' are going to erect  flnsc.itQJ_th.e_hall a large stable. 50x2r>,  THE  POOR  MAN'S  PIUG  The following from lhe editorial  (iilurnns nf the lieglna.

This little  tilck Ih played out, and well it may  lie. because it turns out that the poor  man's tobacco has actually ilcui-cuitcd  in price, and only the highly priced  brands consumed by the rich have increased.

I have seen  some very fine specimen:! of milch  cows, well bred animals. A. number  of them would do nmpl* justice to  Calgary show. On the whole the  district seems to be healthy In every  respect, financially and otherwise.  The cattle cannot help getting  through the coming winter all right-  Grain Ih In abundance everywhere,  and no end ot hay and straw.  One of the good things also Is the  fishing ln the creek. Trout aro plentiful and a fair fisher can easily get a  ilo-zefT or two In an hour, and as nice  eating as the Bow or Rlbow trout.  One of the ranchmen had th������ misfortune to have two of his ribs broken  Ihe other day. His crop war all cut,  but nor, slacked.

Pekin, August 14. ���������(By post via  Tien Tsin)���������A medal will be struck  commemorating the siege of Pekin. It  will bear the legend, "Men, not walls,  make a city.'  In the grounds of the British legation, where a haudlul of men withstood tbe millions or the Chinese  capital for 5G (lays, a memorable celebration is in progress tonight in vindication' o������ that principle. Missionaries assembled about the bell tower,  singing the Doxology. Rockets were  blazing. Soldiers and civilians cf all  nationalities arc fraternizing. The  women are applauding the sound of  the cannon that are smashing the  yellow roofs of the forbidden city.  The tired Sikhs are planting their  tents on the lawn, aud the Americans  and Russians are lighting camp fires  along the stretch of turf extending  beyond  the Tartar wall.  A" Much-Mixed Crowd  Through the ruins of the foreign  settlement an tiger, cosmopolitan  crowd is jostling���������Indians. Cossacks,  legation ladies, diplomats, Americans  from the Philippines, and French  disciplinarians from Saigon, who kept  discreetly in the rear while the fighting was in progress but came conspicuously to the front when looting  began. Only Japanese who have earned the first place, are absent.  Luxury of . nrmunity from Bullets  Resident foreigners welcomed the  luxury o������ walking about and immunity from bullets. The'newcomers are  anxious to inspect the evidences of  the historic defence. These barricades  are, after all, the most wonderful  sights of Pekin. The barriers hedging  in the British legation are a market  of stone and brick walls and earthworks. Sandbags shield every space.  The tops o������ the walls have niches for  riflemen, ancl the buildings, at their  porticos ancl windows ,have armor  boxes,   hags   stuffed   with   dirt,     and  pillows too.  " Fort Myers"  Back of tho United States legation  is a work named "Fort Myers," which  the marines held, completely screening both sides of the walls, with steps  leading to it. There is a loop-holed  barrier across the wall which faces  a similar Chinese work a few yards  away. Another -wall bars Legation  street in front of the German legation  and confronting the enemy's barricades. Within these limits.are yet  more walls, enabling the foreigners  to contract the area of defence, if  pressed.  Torn hy Chinese Shells  The tops of Oie American and  British buildings were badly torn by  Chinese shells. Thc rest of thc foreign settlement was almost demolished. Two thousand eight hundred  shells fell there during the first three  weeks of the .bombardment, 400 fell  in ono day. Buckets full of bullets  were gathered ou the ground.  Eleven .Civili-ns Killed  Four hundred ancl fourteen people  lived in the epmpouu'" through the  greater part of' the siege. Three hundred and four marines, assisted by  So vounteers, commanded by the English captain, .Poole, defended the  place. Eleven civilians were killed  and 39 wounded. Fifty-four marines  and sailors wero killed and 112  wounded.  Additional Details  The army transport, when it reached Pekin, was a unique sight. Miles  of animals, vehicles and coolies trailed behind everything imaginable on  wheels. Everything on wheels, from  farm wagons to fashionable traps.was  impressed, and every horse, mule and  Chinaman on the path was commandeered������������������Th.-Vfapanese-had-cows-bear--  ing packs.and the Russians had camels. Chinamen pulled the carts, and  staggered under heavy packs, the  soldiers cursing and beating them.  Several dropped dead. Over two  hundred junks and scows bearing  munitions were towed up the river by  coolies. Had the Chinese taken the  offensive most of the transportation  might easily have been captured and  cut to pieces by small flanking parties.  After It became apparent that the  enemy was demoralized tlie generals  trusted the transport . to - luck, and  bent their efforts .oward getting  ahead. Oniy audi- an emergency .as  existed could have justified such  hardships as were imposed upon the  troops.  A Great Peceptlon  The reception which the survivors  gave the army was.worth the hardships the troops liiul undergone. The  besieged removed the barricades, and  when the gates swung Inward and  the IlrltSh colors appeared there arose  a great continuous cheer on both  sldea.  An hour afterwards General Chaffee, riding at .'.he head of the American infantry, ,'uarclied to the Tartar  wall, ft'hc told that iha British had  entered before .them cue American  general looked d I sap pointed, hut,  although the Americans -jntered behind the last of the Ilritislj. forces,  their reception was just as enthiiKlas-  tic.   o   When the horses ror the Strathcona  contingent wore being purchased in  Southern Alberta grave complaints  were made against their quality. It  was felt that they were not of a  standard to do credit to the North  "West. However, as Lord Strathcona  was payiug Tor the horses it was felt  to be somewhat indelicate to press the  question too strongly. The results in  the outward voyage and in the field  more than justified .the harshest criticism passed upon them. H, S.  Whito. corespondent of the Montreal  Star, who recently returned from  South Africa, said in a published interview:  "The animals selected for the Strathcona Horse   were much    inferior,    in  fact, it may not   be generally known  that these animals after   losing   half  their number on tlie passage out, actually landed in Cape Town with glanders-.     This necessitated  the delay ot  tho   troops  in  Cape Town for  two  or  three weeks-, as the Starthconas when  they  got   there   wero   practically  dismounted,  and had  to wait until   new  mounts could    be    obtained  for them.  They were certainly the worst selected horses ln South Arrlca.   Very little  care  or supervision  could   have  been  cexreised  in  their selection."  __ Thi.s    is  a    harsh      statement,   but  must be accepted as a fact. It does not  concern us how Lord Strathcona spent  his  money.      But it concers   us very  greatly that such a lot ot inferior and  diseased horses should have gone from  Western Canada to create a bad impression in the very quarter where we  most  desired    to  create  a  good   one.  These horses were expected and supposed to be representative of the stock  of Western Canada, and judging from  the subsequent course of    the   British  army   officials   In   purchasing   horses,  have been so     considered      by 'hem.  There can be no    doubt    as to   Lord  Strathcona's intentions in the matter.  There is no question that he intended  that   .the   horses  iof   the   contingent  should be as suitable for the purpose  as money would buy, and at the same  time truly representative of tho horse  product   of   the   western   ranges.      It  looks very much as though a job was  put   up   on   Lord   Strathcona  and  on  the  horse  industry  of  thc   Territories  as well.     In the first place it is generally understood that   a considerable  proportion of the horses purchased tor  the contingent   came rrom   Montana,  and were not Canadian horses at all.  And in  the next place  the  fact that  the   majority were unfit for the work  required   of them    was    apparent to  anyone  who had ever    seen a horso.  While it would bo unfair to hold Lord  Strathcona  responsible for    what  has  taken place,  his agent in the matter  must be.     It would be unfair .to Lord  Strathcona not to let  him  know how  his "patriotic    munificence    has    been  doubly betrayed against himself in the  one instance   and against the    North  West in the other.   .
