Tokonto, Oct. 17.���������At 11 meeting of  the executive committee of the Liberal-  Conservative Association this  evening  tlie following statement, was given ont:  " The ropoi r,  telegraphed   hy   tlie  I.a  Presse correspondent from Toronto is  evidently   au  attempt.   l"o   revive the  drooping fortunes of the Liberal  party  in Quebec.   It is entirely  wide of  the  mark as far at Ontario  is   concerned.  The party in this Dominion is solidly  united   under   the   leaden ship   of   Sir  Chiirle.s Tupper, who presents the muiiu  policy in  every  part of  the   country,  The Conservatives of Quebec may rely  upon it that Ontario will give a  larger  Couservative'inajorilv at tlio approaching  elections   than   iu   any   previous  period of ils history.    The  electors  of  this province icalize���������as do lhe electors  of   the  'ithor    provinces   of   tbe   Dominion���������that the measure of prosperity  which generally obtains is  due  to  the  fact that we have been blessed for  llie  past four years wilh abundant harvests  which have aubslinitially improved the  position   nt' the farming community,  and that the position of the manufacturing industries  is a  tribute to  the  .statesmen who, against the protest nf  the r   Liberal      leaders     gave     them  that   measure   of      protection    which  was   necessary     for    their    development, and whicli has not lieen serioiioly  affected by the legislation  of  the  past  four years.    The speeches made by tlie  the  Liberal  leaders  last   niglit   were  remarkable     for      their       omissions.  Thousands of people, both Liberal   and  Conservative,    went   to   the  meetings  to hear  what   could   be   said   by   the  apostles of Libui'iilNm, as to the accusations'which   have   been   made,   not  only liy the Conservatives but by  such  leading  Liberals  as  Mr.  II. 11.   Cook,  ex-.M.P., but the audiences were  sadly  disappointed, and the  general  opinion  in ihe city to-d*iy is that the Conservatives are more than justified  in  accusing    the     Liberal     party   of   having  betrayed the electorate and dishonored  every pledge they  gave   in  1SO0.    The  province of Ontario will return at least  ,;">5 to 60 Conservatives.     This  estimate  i.s inside the luark, iiud'if  it  were   mil  foi the  open, and  disgraceful  aili'ince.  wiih   '.he   local   government   and   llie  unblushing   and indiscriminate use   of  .corruption   funds,   lhe ' Liberal   parly  .would be.swept oiil of existence in this  province.

TROUT LAKE TOPICS  Mines and Mining Matters   in the Lardeau.--A Rumor That  the   Nettie   L  Has   Changed   Hands.���������Estimate   of  the Winter's Shipment.  Trout Lake,   B. C,  Oct. 22.��������� The  winter is approaching us rapidly;   we  had our first snowstorm   on   Sunday  morning,  lasting   but a  short   time.  Rain lias bftcn   incessant for  a week  past making the roads and  trails  nil  mud and slush.  With the approach of winter the  mines at work are arranging for the  taking out of ore during the winter.  Craig & liillman will bundle the Nettie  L ore and S. Daney the Silver Cup ore.  Tbo amount to be taken to deep water  this winter will he somewhat larger  than has ever been taken from the  camp before. The Nettie L people say  from 500 to 700 tons will be shipped.  Thi.s is succeeded by a rumor that the  pioperty has changed hands and will  put on all the men possible to develop  the mine rapidly, so as to get out  larger quantities of ore. Anyway we  may look for 700 tons from the Net tie  L, The Cup in all probability will  ship from 300 to 500 tons. This, wilh  other small shippers, will make quite a  respectable showing.  The. Free Coinage is to be worked liy  lease this winter and the Cheyenne  will tie worked by the owners^  We hear a great deal about properties changing hands in the near future  ���������two on the Northern hill, one up the  North Fork, several on .the Cup Mt.,  and'one.- tributary to Gainer Creek,  hut they are. yet in the. hands of the  original owners. So far we are in the  dark", but'ilwill he known in good time.  The mines "at work are developing  splendidly all along the line.

FOREWARNED, FOREARMED  John Charlton M. P. Advises Canadians  ��������� to Profit By the   Experience   of   the  Empire in South Africa.  Speaking at Lynedoth Mr. .John  Charlton said, concerning the French-  Canadians, that Ganad.-i hud to learn  something from the experience of the  empire iu South Africa.. God foihid  that he should say anything against  the French or call their loyalty into  question, but he could not be ignorant  of the fact that the tri-tolor is shown  in Quebec-.-i-tlioiisaiid-ti'iiies-where-the  Union Jack is shown once." Thesepeo.  pie look back wilh regret to the time  when the empire passed from the  hands of France to England and the  history of Norlh America was changed,  and .while he would rot abridge one  iota the privilege the French-Camullan  possesses or insinuate might as to his  loyalty, yet he would say that the  sifety of Canada lay in Anglo-Saxon  hands, mid, realizing that, he felt it  would not lie improper to have a  British garrison stationed in Quebec,  ready at any moment to assert British  authority under.' any circumstances  or emergencies that might arise. He  did not say this because he wauled to  insinuate that lhe necessity would  come for it, but be would say "Forewarned is forearmed," and we cannot  allotd to trifle with the future. In  conclusion Mr. Charlton said there  were two courses open to Caniidn: to  become absorbed with, tbe United  States, the most powerful n-ition next  to Great Britian���������(( ries of "Never!")���������  the other was identification with the  Empire of Great Britain, and he  prefened the latter alternative.

The   international'  importance of   the contest is found ia'-  the fact that Mr. Morine, the leader of -.-'  the opposition is a Canadian,  who-is  understood as* favoring the annexation',-  of Newfoundland to the  Dominion of,  Canada, while his opponent, Mr."Bond,  who   recently  succeeded .Sir   James.;  Whiter as Primetlinister, is an -advo-'.  cate of   closer relations   between   the-  island colony and the United States.

DourQiea, now sitting ln  the house of commons, was no less  eager and determined than liis illustrious ancestor, lo preserve the nationality and uphold thc rights of the  French-Canadians."  Hon. Mr. Tarte, in Paris Figaro Interview. September, 1899:  "I feel keenly fur the suffering of  your country���������of mine (France). As  a child I wore French sabots, and in  jny mother's room thero was a French  clock which told thc hours, and Is  still in my possession. We sins  French songs at home. Do you think  that under these circumstances 1  should love your country?"  Hon. Mr. Tarte in Paris Figaro  interview. September. 1S99:  "There are two millions of J-'reneh  people in Canada. On national feast  days not a hpiif-c but is decorated  with French colors. See thc province  of Quebec. It becomes more French,  for French Immigrants are coming in  each day, and when the English arc  not in a majority in a country, when  they are not masters, they ret out."  Hon. Mr. Tarte, in Paris Figaro  interview. September.  1S99:  "Why should London, which, is on  an Island, become the centre of tho  word, rather than Paris, the r-ity of  civilization, of liberty, of justce?"  Hon. Mr. Tarte. at Montreal Ile-  iorm club. October 10, 1899:  "Tho question is: Sliull this country interfere or hold aloof in Eng-  lands troublos? I say, and without  hesitation, thnt this is a question  upon which no liurrlod decision should  be given; it Is not a queston of  money, bin of principle, anil before  tho Liberal party makes up its mind  as to thc proper attitude to adopt,  it should pause aud consult parliament."  Hon. Mr. Tarte at the Herbetlo  banquet, Windsor hotel, Oct. 5, 1899:  "I declare hero it a public mau iu  the arena of foderal politics, who has  not the energy and courage to say  thut lie is French, when he belongs  to that race, it would bo better for  him to remain at home. T return,  from. France, where I received the  caro that French science can givo,  and I return to Camilla more French  than over."  Hon. Mr. Tarte, at the Herbette  banquet,   Windsor   hotel.   October    9.  1S99  :  "1 am a minister in a British government, and I have the right to say  that I am French. But I tell you  this: If to declare myself a British  subject would prevent me from being  French, thon would I refuse to call  myself n British subject. We make  no threats, as thc ballot box Is our  best defence. XVe arc happy nnd  free undor British institutions, but  Franco is  always  our dear country."  Hon. Mr. Tarte,  at Paris,  June 21,  1890:  "The vast and beautiful country  known as Canada was once under the  dominion of France. He spoke regretfully of thc change from French to  English laws, laying stress on thc  hardships endured by the French-  Canadians, when the English language  was substituted for their own and  they were left in ignorance of the  laws they were bound to obey."  Hon.  Mr. Tarte,  at Paris,  June 21,  1900:  "Tho American refugees ,of United  Empiro loyalists, deislrous of preserving their allegiance to tho English  throne, crowded into Canada, and  settled in many parts ot it, being well  received by the government. But they  soon conceived the idea that the country be'onged to them, and they would  have done away with the French language. French customs, and in fact  destroy the nationality of the French-  Canadians if their attempts in this  direction .has not been strenuously  resisted."  Hon.  Mr. Tarte,  at Paris, June 21,  1900:  "Tho Queen of England rules over,  but does not govern, her domains."  Hon. Mr. Tarte, at Paris, June 21.  1900:  "He dwelt on the warmth of  French-Canadian affection for France,  and said that though they lived undor  the British flag,' yet on their festival  days, and In national celebrations, it  was Uie tri-color that floated over  their homes.' They were French at  heart, and they would always be  French."  Hon. Mr. Tarte. at Paris, June 21,  1900:  "1 will say, as I have often said  before, that I am French, lhat I was  never anything else but French, and  that I will always be French. In  spoaking thus, I am voicing the feelings ot  my  fellowcountrymen."  Hon. Mr. Tarte, at Paris. June 21,  1900:  "I will not venture to prophesy  concerning the future of Canada, but  it may bo supposed that in 10 or 20  years, when the population shall have  grown to as many millions, England  may find it embarasslng to keep such  a heavy child on her lap, and as  French-Canadians increase numerically much faster than their tora-  patriots of different origin, there ".*  rr.om for hope that a great and glorious destiny still awaits us."  Is i������ surprising that the following  "sliwld_l^th"e~c"onfm"e"iit"^f"th"e~Fren"ch~  journals upon' the conclusion of such  remarks as the  last quoted?:  "From beginning to end of his discourse, Mr. Tarto was listened to with  profound attention. His allusions to  France and the affection in which she  ig held by his countrymen, were  warmly applauded. When he resumed  his seat, M. Mager expressed his appreciation of the Interesting conference, laying stress on the hint dropped by the minister as to probable  future of Canada. 'We will hope,'  was his concluding remark."  occupant to that position in tho tic-  ccsaiy ot his election by a" state legislature.  Tlio facts which are now disclosed  In regard to the manner in which  vacancies in thc Canadian senate havo  been illled during the Laurier regime  will place this conutry ln a most unenviable light betore the world. Not  since tho days of "Walpole has such  a story as is now told, been heard In  regard to the legislative bodies ot  either the mother country or any of  her self-governing dependencies. Tho  shameful facts can be told in a. tew  words.  I-I.  H.  Cook,  who published  an  address a few days ago, giving the' reasons   why,   although   a  life-long  Liberal  and  yet  an  ardent  adherent of  Liberal principles, he could no longer  support   the   government,     he     was  charged by some of his former political associates with having taken such  a course because he was disappointed  at not having been made a    senator.  Probably    those    who    attacked  him  now regret  that they did  so.      Thoy  forced Mr. Cook to glvo somo details  hi  regard   to   the     matter    and    thc  result is a disclosure at which every  honest Canadian,  whatever his  political creed,  must stand    aghust!     Mr.  Cook does not deny that on a vacancy  occurring in the senato, he made application for it.   His services for   thc  Liberal   party,   extending;  over   many  years entitled him to a recognition of  them.    The leaders of the  party  did  not deny  this or suggest that    thoro  was  auyhing  which   made  Mr.  Cook  ineligible for such an honorable position. . It  was,    therefore,     intimated  thnt'the seat was open to him���������on one  condition  and   that such  as  ho  honorable man could entertain.  It seems  that seats in   the senato.  under the present Liberal regime, arc  regarded as articles of merchandise to  be disposed of ir. a manner similar to  that in  which  Mr.  Tarte  deals with  contracts for coals and  other things.  "Business is bustneBs"  even when,  a  high,   political' and   legislative   oflice.  such as a scnatorship,  is in question  and Mr. Cook was lold that he could  have tho coveted position  for a consideration���������$10,000.    Nor was this an  exceptional  proposal.    Mr.  Cook,  apparently was not the only Liberal to  whem. such a suggestion was    made,  as  he was  told   by tho  official    who  mado   tho   proposition   to   him     that  another offer was being considered in  which  Uie  applicant  bid ,$15,000    for  the   scat.  Nothing more, need be said. The  humiliation is complete. If an old  and faithful Liberal like Mr. Cook had  to pay down thousands of dollars for  a seat, in the senate, what amount was  exacted from other gentlemen who  have boen given similar positions  since 189G? Some of them were comparatively unknown. More of them  had never been prominent in tho  ranks of their party. The ability and  fitness of- somo of them was such as  to raise the intellectual standard of  the senate hy their accession. In thc  case of ninny of them impartial criticism was not favorable to their selection. But a review of the list shows  that they were nearly all men of  wealth. Mr. Cook's disclosure furnishes the key to the mystery.���������Vancouver   News-Advertiser.  man of sufficient sagacity and foresight to see which way the cat waa  going to jump m this election and ho  has a close knowledge of the feeling  througout his district; but apart from  these considerations he was constrained to repudiate the representative ot  the party of broken promises, whose  practical usefulness to Alberta during'  the last four years has not been discernible to the naked eye, and the  magnetism of Mr. Bennett's cause attracted him as it haa attraced hundreds of other thinking men.

To  avoid the risk tho general custom   is  by some retailers to put popular goods  in   a  prominent  place  and   then    fill  orders  with   other  goods,  saying nothing  about  where  they  came  from,  but   selling   them   on    their    merits.  Butchers will hand up a Bide of beef  and   label   it     'Prime   English   Fed.'  Thoy will  havo other beef cut up in  roasts  and   other  forms  and  labelled  'English killed.'    From the above and  other reports It is to he observed that  as   steers   shipped   from   Canada   are  killed  in  England  this last definition  of 'English killed' is correct, although  the beef was fattened In and shipped  from Canada. The "merchandise marking   act  provides   that  goods  coming  imto   England   shall   be   branded   on  the outside of the enso.   It is important that all Canadian shippers should  stoncil 'Canadian' or 'Canada'  plainly  on. thc outside of every package for  llio best of trade reasons as well ns  that  of complying    with  the  British  law."

"Mr. Cook always was a little near,"  Is tho comment of one Liberal organ  on the scnatorship scandal. What  would a man who Is counted generous  be asked by "the machine" for a place  In the second chamber?  Sir Wilfrid Laurier says he never  sent an agent to H. H. Cook offering  him a scnatorship for $10,000. . Sir  Wilfrid is a clever qulbbler. He said  he did not "send" the South African  contingents; he only "permitted them  to go."  One of Mr. Sifton's most prominent  workers in Brandon, and the man who  is "handling the stuff," is the notorious  Ned Farrar. Comment is unnecessary  when It Is remembered who are Mr.  Fafrar's bosses.  Soldiers in khaki formed part of the  procession that escorted Sir Wilfrid  Laurier from his hotel to the hall on  the occasion of the Toronto demonstration, it is presumed they were  something more than "permitted to  enlist" for the occasion. That phrase  is  for Quebec  use  only.  The following peculiar ilem is taken  from L'Echo de Parts of October 6:  "M.

SENATORSHIPS FOR SALE  It was thought that tin; depth ot  political Immorality and corruplon  had lieen reached by tho scandalous  ballot frauds disclosed ln some of thc  elections in Ontario. But there appears to bo no limit to tlio way in  which the opportunities afforded by  the Liberals being In power at Ottawa have been exploited to the  pecuniary advantage of the party. Assuredly it never entered the mind of  any Conservative that seats In the  senate was made an object of sale  and purchase just as much ns hay  or {iotatoes or any other commodity.  We have heard a good deal about thc  corruption whicli has sometimes been  connected with contests for scats in  the senate of the United States. But  in those cases it was only suggested  that sonic members of a legislature  had been bribed to'give their votes  for a certain candidlnte. It was never  hinted* that thc federal government  had actually put n price on a scat in  the upper house' of congress and thiu  n recognized friend and supporter of  tlie: government was offered thr; cov-  ctr'd position on the payment of a  Kiwi round snni of money.

Tlio issue of  loday is not whether the Protestants of Manitoba shall have a free  hand in dealing with thoafew Catholics who live among them, for thnt  Sir Wilfrid Laurier himself says, is  settled. Thc question is, has the  Laurier government given tho country  an administration that it would pay  to have prolonged. With the offences  of Messrs Tarte and Blair, and Siflon  mid Borden, the weaknesses and vacillation of Sir Wilfrid Laurier himself, ancl the failures and mistakes of  his ministers, so forcibly evident to  the public, It will take more than  words, words, words of thc Toronto  gathering addresses to pull the government through.  he spoke were blazoned with thc declaration that he wa* "The King of  Canada."

NOTE AND COMMENT  It is becoming increasingly difficult  every day as this campaign | rocceds  for a Conservative newspaper to find  anything to say against the Laurier  administration, which some prominent  Liberal is not perfectly willing to  endorse. The last to join the ranks of  our friends is a cabinet minister, Hon.  Mr. Fielding. The Minister or Finance  should he an authority on the financial  policy of his own government. What  does he tell us? "It is wise," he save,  to have a tariff giving the manufacturers a reasonable degree of protection." The Conservative, contention  then that the LauKer -government  has abandoned llie fiscal policy, which  it wont to the country in '90 pledged  to support, is correct. Hero is llie  Liberal Tariff Pi l.cy as announced in  '03,  " Tlie issue.between the two political  parties on the question is now clearly  defined. The government themselves  admit the failure oftheii- fiscd policy,  and now profess their willingness to  make aome changes; but they say that  such changes must bu based only on  the principle of protection. We  denounce tlie principle of protection  as radically unsound and unjust to the  masses of the people, and we declare  our'conviction that, any tariff changes  based on thnt principle must fail to  afford any substantial relief from the  burdens under which the country  labor.-'. This issue we unhesitatingly  accept, and-iipon it we await wilh the  fullest confidence tbe verdict of tiie  elictors of Canada."  Now Mr, Fielding tells us that a  reasonable degree of protection is-  ,\v.ise,-that--lhcpi:esent_tai'_HT_fraiii.ed_by.  the Liberal party in V7 is based on  that principle, and what is more, that  he does not "anticipate in the early  future that any material change will  be made in tlictarilf.'*  A Searching  Test  In these Days of Hurry  and Rush the Medicines you  Use should be ofthe Highest  Grade, and Absolutely Pure.
