NOTE AND COMMENT  The Rossland Miner concedes Yale-  Cariboo to the Conservatives. It says.  '���������Mint Mr. MacNeill will be elected in  this constituency, with three candidates in lhe field, is very probable,"  Ed. McKeown, a former ornament  of the prize ring in Manitoba but who  recently found more pi-nfltable, employment as a Sifton official in Yukon,  went through from thu west, on  Wednesday's No 2, to aid the young  Napoleon in the approaching struggle.  The Telegram allows th.it "in former  scraps Mr. McKeown, lias been a tower  of strength to the lii.ichine. He was  accompanied by a Mr. Carson, political  associate of McKmiwu's in liis struggles  for Liberalism and purity. McGregor.  ex livery stable keeper nt .Brandon,  now Siflon's Inspector of Mines in  Yukon, has also been summoned from  bis ui'duons oliicial laborers, iu course  of which he has contrived lo amass n  considerable fortune "'on the side." to  rally round Napoleon, who feels it in  his bones that he is up against his  Waterloo, lie. and his crew will never  know what hit them.  .At last the shrinking and .shivering  over the fatal plunge has come to an  e.id and the Liberal government by  dissolving parliament and issuing  .writs for a new election has reluctantly consented to sign its own death  warrant. The elections ate to take  place on Nov. 7. The time is so shoit  that the candidates for Yale-Cariboo  can never expect to get around their  constituency. All the more therefore  does tiie HERAM) reiterate its former  appeals to Conservatives'to" come forward and shoulder the responsibilities,  which rest upon them, if tbey want to  see Mr. MacNeill returned to the head  of the poll.  ������ ���������*****#>P**1*������*^S^P.**J������#*^ P&0&&������&^tt^W*#&.P&&H*9-J>**#l*  ������ !  ������j .���������jGXS������������������SX������XSX������^^  ���������gg������ijr-m^TTr^Jr������^-n������n-.������iJ.*.*..-i...*j..1 f-j ..i.l. tj..^.. -fi^m  [jUB.aexjfJirjf'fif/^wyjaECHiaa'.'i-iiriiiiin  JWJJMJrtJlJ^MCingM  The Glory of Autumn wliich Nature delays for cooler weather, art lists anticipated  and in n Store sense this i.s ihe richest, ripest, fulle-t time of Autumn.

A Nelson despatch 01 the 8th says:  There is eveiy indicition that the  Liberals here will leave no stone unturned to seem e if possible the tetire-  liient of Uie labor candidate. Fiom an  autlioi iial.ivo source it is learned that  negotiation.* are about to be enteied  into witli a view lo Mr. Foley's leiire-  uient in Mr. Gnllihcr's interest. The  Liberals feel that unless Mr. Foley  retires- their chances are almost hopeless, and the leader*? in Nelson are in  cointiiunic.itTon with those in Ros*!and  wlio take tbe-same view. On the  other hand, tlieie is strong opposition  aiming the labor people lo any retiring movement. Mr. Wilks. if lukewarm  i.s concealing his feelings, and seems to  think that Mr. Foley has a fair fighting chance. It is stated that Wilks  fa vol s the resignation nf Smith  Curtis from tlie Provincial Legislature  and his acceptance of the nomination  for Ottawa. In this event Wilks would  coolest the vacancy for Victoria. As  Mr Curtis will not consent to thi.s. the  Nelson Libeials now look to him to  gel, Mr. Foley out. of the way. The  situation is becoming complicated,  and many labor leaders openly express  their disappi oval of the proposed deal,  and areindigtiaiitthat anything should  he done which will be interpreted outside as a retreat on their part. They  decline that having put their hand tu  the plough, they will not turn back.  Womens' Plain Grev Wool Ve-sts.

The kitchen.,  pantries and ofiices of the house are  behind and are all designed on a  spacious scale and filled with eveiy  modern convenience and appliance.  O'i the southwest side of th'e ball is an  office and study. A broad staircase  leads from the front hall to the floor  above, whicli comprises five large  bedrooms and a batlnonni.

Fortunatelv llie area of alkaline  lands in Canada Is compartively small,  and the Dominion as a whole Is so well  i-ateiecl that there is little necessity for  irrigation.

AH  IRRIGATION   DANGER  Montreal Star: Very glowing reports  have been published from time to time,  regarding  -hi wonderful effects of irrigation  in -he  far    AVestern    States.  The  firs=t  cost was "great,  but it was  claimed   that  the  effect  was  to turn  the  desert  into a garden  of wondrous  fertility,    producing    enormous     crops  that   would   never  fail   on   accout   of  lack of rain and never spoil because of  too much rain.     There were many examples of success that seemed to Justify   such   statements   and   many   believed   tha:  the   vast  region   formerly  known  as the Great  American Desert  would  eventually  become   one  of   the  most  productive  farming    districts  is  the  United  States.      All that'was   required  to accomplish    this,  they said,  was plenty of capital to carry out irrigation.  Bul now a note of alarm Is being  sounded. The lands which yielded such  -enormou? crop? of " vegetables and  fruits when first Irrigated are again  becoming desert.-.  It is explained that the soil is underlaid bv deposits of alkaline salts which  havo accumulated for axes, and the  water applied by irrigation dissolves  these salt.- and brings them 'o the surface from eulte a depth. As the water  evaporates there is left behind a  coaling ef srali wliich at first seems  benefiiciai, enriching the land, but as  time goes on and the salt ln the soil  increases, the land is ruined by it.  Professor F. H. Newell, chief hvdro-  srapher of the United States Geological survey, has Just returned t.i  Washington from a triD to the irrigation belt and in an Interview with  the Washington correspondent of the  lios'.on T'.-an.-cript he snid that some of  _^Ui*������_b*teL_farmp_and_jirchartls   in   the  HOW THE MONEV IS SPENT.  The Liberals are very anixous that.  Ihe Conservative journals should discuss anything rather than the increased exoenditure. The lending  Liberal organs are never done with  their articles on the prosperity of the  country and the increase in exports,  but they say as little as possible  about the increased expenditure.  With tho prosperity of the country  tue Liberals have had nothing to do.  If they had not passed a single one  of the measures that thoy have passed through ' parliament, the country  would have been just as prosperous  as it Is today. This being a free  country,' they could not pass, any law  that would interfere with Hie free  right of the individual to do Iho'best  ne can ror himself in his business and  profession under existing conditions.  The protective tariff put into opera-  lion by Hie Conservatives is still in  eixstence with a few changes, and  those are tn.material, if we except the  British preference, which has harmed  instead of helped the trade of the  country. The Liberals, therefore, have  cone nothing lo bring about the prosperity. Thoy cannot claim the credit  ror  il.  Hut li. Is a different thing when we  come to tbe Question of expenditure.  Tho govennent nre answerable fur  this. If they have unjusUfiedly increased the cost of government, If thoy  nave failed to practice that economy  which they preached when ia opposition. If they have taken advantage of  an increased revenue to squander the  public funds instead of husbanding  them. It they have done these things  ���������then ihey musi be hold io account  for them.

Here lifelong Conservatives not only refused  to work or vote for thc Conservative candidate but did all thoy could  to defeat him. Now all that is changed.

Even the  Liberals admit that it was only because of division in the Conservative camp that they succeeded ln  carrying the election 1396.

Their   vesel   foundered   shortly   after  they abandoned her. ��������� Captain Hatfield  on his arrival at Qnuarantine reported  that his ship sailed  from I*&w York  on September 10th ��������� bound  for  Soura-  bia, Java, with a full cargo of case oil.  Two days after leaving Sandy Hook  a strong southeast   gale  sprang    up  soon  increased  in   force,   and   hauled  to  west, southwest  aud   assumed   the  proportions   of  a   hurricane.     All   of  the sails were suddenly furled except  the lower topsails which were set to  steady   the  vessel  as   there  was    an  exceedingly rough sea running.    The  seas   boarded   the   vessel     frequently  tons of'water falling upon    the deck,  doing considerable damage to thc vessel and fittings and finally threw her  on  her  beam  ends.      The  Nonpareil  remained   in   this' position     and   all  efforts  to right her were unavailing.  The storm continued until Thursday,  tho  13th.. at noon,  and  then   moderated.    The sea, however, continued to  run very high and there was unsettled  ruogh  weather.      On  Friday,   the  21st,  the storm again burst violently  upon   the   ship   and   the  sails    were  blown   away.     The   Nonpareil    took  several lurches to starboard and settled down on her beamends and failed to right herself.    Tho seas, which  swept over the vessel washed everything from the decks, filled the deckhouses   and smashed   the  cabin   skylights.     The   cabin   was    filled  .with  water  to  the  deck.    The  wheelhouse  and   compasses,   binnacle  covers  and  many other   valuables - wore   washed  overboard.    The ship filled herself to  the starboard poop.    The ventialtors  and two boats on  the starboard side  were washed away during the night.  The boats on the port side were stove  in and rendered uselss and the spar,  which was lashed  to the main    deck  on  the   starboard  side  broke    adrift,  carrying the eyebolts with it. Another  spar on the house was-also wreiched,  leaving large holes in the deck which  wore constantly flooded  by  the seas.  At 1 o'clock in the morning of Satur-  ~dayr~th~o''=22ridrJthe~ship- was -lying-tit  an angle of 40 degrees and the crew  were   in   constant  danger    of    being  washed  overboard.    The  chief  ofiicer  and several men were injured during  the trying times of the past few days.  The cabin  was fillod with water and  no place was to be had to care for the  injured. The   main   and   mizzen   topmasts were cut down but did pot right  theship.    (The 'gale   continued     and  high cross seas prevailed on the 22nd.  The ship was lying on her starboard  side" and   nothing could   be  seen  but  the port bulwarks    and  all  hope  of  saving her was gone/'-'At 3:30 o'clock  in  thc afternoon  the    smoke    of-..a  steamer was ighted and as she ,camo  nearer  she  sighted   the    wreck    and  headed  for it.    She proved  to he tho  Glengoil   bound  for New York.    She  sent a boat and  took off part of the  men. the injured being sent first. All  had   to   jump   overboard    and    wore  hatilned   Into   tho   boat    by   a   rope.  When  the boat returned to tho Glengoil  she wns stove in  hut  its occupants wore safely landed on board tho  steamer.    Another boat was sent and  made   two   trips   successfully.     Thc  last   trip   was   made   after   dark   and  whon   fhe   went    alongside     of     tho  steamer.   F.   George,   one    of    boat's  crew,   got   crushed   on   the   gunwale  and   was washed  overboard and  lost.  Tho men were all much exhausted and  struggling in  the  water In  the effort  to hoard the steamer and were' unable  to aid the unfortunate man.    Both the  boats need In tlie rescue wore so much  damaged  that, Ihey were cist   adrift.  Captain   Hatfield   and   thc  28  of    the  crow of the Nonpareil lost all of their  effects.      They   express   gratitude   for  Die care and kindness of Captain Davidson  and   the  bravery  of  his  crew  in   ���������effecting   the   timely   rescue.
