Judicium fiom the  inauociivrciiig thai took place   during  that   time   I   believe   Ihal  old Buller  was persuading the Boers to hold their  positions.   The first day the transport  was  all   loaded,   just   as   though   we  wero going   right through.      Reveille  sounded at -t:.'iO and   we   iiiarclied   al  six.

Thinners kept shelling us with   shrapnei,  each shell dropping nearer to us.     We  began   to   ask   each   other   what are  they keeping us here   for.      You   can  safely bet that  it   was   anything   Inn  pleasant to he made a target ul',   wliil.-  Buller w.is trying   to   place   the'B'.ei  guns.

'The next day  2000 infantry in* sent to do the same  -work-assisted-liy-ai'tillery They_un.-t.  with no opposition. The following  day Buller was teady to move. They  look ii* all over tlie 1 alley in every  direction to dr.iiv Hre from the' Boer  guns, each move nearer (he Boer  position. It was a lovely job never  knowing when the .fun would really,  1 ommeiice. At I,ist it. was known  that Air. Boer had gone and we then  went .-liMighl up the road. . When  we gut lo the top and saw the portion  which the Buers had held, we uere  surprised lhat they had not held us  iheie. Behind Ihem was a large plain  making an easy retreat possible.  Place a table at one end of a 1 oom  wilh a slope 011 the 1 ear end and you  have a good idea ot' the position.  Soon afti r passing the top we caught  sight ol Jan Hamilton's column on our  left.-- We maiched that day all over  Hat country. ; Next, day we struck  Lydeuluug. No. 3 B. S.

We  made for a small kopje, scorning our  way as we went. Two hundred yards  further und we were tinder tire fiom  the hill. Of course we were expecting  it. but a little incident happened that  had never occurred before. Hai-dly  had the Boeis opened fire.' when���������  Bang! goes a gun on our left throwing shrapnel all over the hill. , It was  the first tiii'.o.we had ever been helped  by artillery fire, when on advance  guard, as we were always far in advance of the guns. Imagine our  delight when we learnt that it   was   a  Kut of a Canadian Buttery with Ian  auiiltoti. It felt, just like 11 tonch nf  home. The next day we started hunting Boers again, driving them over, a  rough mountain, whiety they had,  boasted that \ve could not follow. Tlio'  second day we caught sight of a Boer  convoy, climbing the other side of the  valley, We let. a yell out nf us and  started aftur them over a road where  only two horses could ride abreast.  But.although they looked snclosc they  were miles away o*ing in the winding  of the road. We struck their rear  guard and a Pom Pom. Darkness set  in, while wc were interviewing them  and we hail lo return to camp.

It is a fuel unprecedented  in the history uf Confederation. It is  a fact which i.s huiind lo set the  electors of the iither provinces thiiiR-  iiiR.  Now there is a feeling among n  considerable class ni the eluclois, who  do mil take a very acute interest in  the clash of parly wiu-faii". a feeling  which accounts forlhe result of a good  manv bye elections and which might  under certain circiiiiistance.s militate  against the chances of Mr. McKanu's  success. It is the feeling that it is a  useless proceeding ���������*l6 .throw a vote  away", as it is called. Ilis better Ihey  argue for a constituuiicy to be on the  winning side and to he represented by  i member favorable lo Ihe govern-  neut and therefore supposed to possess  its ear ' in pleading the cause of the  requirements of his constituency.'  Nou-in nn electoral district which in  the past'had enjoyed a considerable  share of government attention and  government expenditure, in a. district,  in which for the past four years Mr.  Blair had been building rail loads or.  Mr. Tarte distributing conlracts, 'one  ciii conceive that such" an argument  Inighl, couie home with ��������� considerable  force. But one has to look at .in  argument liku this with an eye to the  experience of the past. In Yale-  Cm-ihoii we hi;.ve enjoyed the privilege  lor the last, lour years of ueiiig le-  preser.ted by it member, who never  for any considetatioii strayed from  tho stiict path of party allegiance ur  wandered for one minute from the  party fold. Oliver of Alberta, might  denounce what he constrtere-.l h  swindle in a government department  and Richardson of Lisgar, might kick  over the Liberal traces but tlewiu.  Bostock might be us safely depended  lo cist a strict party vote as ir be held  a seat in the cabinet. What has  Kootenay. what has Vale-Cariboo,  what has British Columbia gained 1iv  it? As far as getting the slightest,  attention paid by the Linner cabinet  to lhe needs of the best known, most  widely talked about and in many  respects most iuiportam, constituency  in Lhu Dominion, a vote for Air. Bostock cast in '98 was as dead a loss as a  vote cast for his detealed opponent.  "It does iiot'then always follow, that  n, vote given to a straight government  supported is not "a ��������� vole thvowii  uvvity." j 111 tUepresetit instance the  experience of the past t'uui" year's  shews us j,hat Lhis, .has actually been  the case tlncu and-a-liuleconsideration  will equally shew that it may verv'  easily be the case again in the future  and that as, lac as the material interests of this riding are concerned a  vote f'ir Mr. Galliher will be a vote  thrown away ami a vole for Mr. McKane a vote made to tell. The present  government is in power bv the grace  of Quebec and iu order" to keep in  power it' will teive to maintain ils  Quebec majoiity up to its full strength  all lhe time. Tfieic is very little hope  lhat. very nilich of the frVileral* ux-  pendituie will be diverted in the next  lour years ft om thi.s important object  loanythiiigsiitiivi.il as lhu Lam ier  government consideis the development of British Columbia to he, judging from their past record. Mr.  Galliher, as a Hraiglrt government  supporter may pie id thu cause of  Kootenay and the lest of Vale-  Cariboo,, us it is only reasonable to  suppose did Air. Bostock. But what  will his single voice be able to aicotn-  plish against the united demands of a  solid Quebec? No. If lhe electors of  Y'lltvCaiiliou want lo make their votes  tell they will cast Ihem to return Mr.  McKane as one of the little -hand of  western members, who stand independent ofthe Giit machine anil in whose  hands tbe interests of the west during  the next four years will lie. Out of  Lhe fifteen western members aheady  returned there are aheady nine belonging to > this' little paity of Conservatives and Independents, who will  act as one man in the interests of the  west, and it is altogether likely that,"  when thooe interests are concerned  they may find athlit!ions lo their tanks  from such men as Oliver of Alberta,  among the government supporter-.. If  Mr. AIcKane is returned from Vale-  Cariboo he will add anothvr member  fl'oui_,tliu west, free to urge the requirements of the wet and- t<������- look after  its interests, without lieing trammeled  by any allegiance to the Liurier  government and woiking with a solid  party of western men,-to whose united  voice the cabinet will havo to pay  some attention. - The government  have . made a. fresh lot of promises  Ui the west this election. So they did  last election. We have seen that re-  'tiU''nio^*"governnient supporters is no  '\twy to keep them up to their pledges.  Let iim' see' how ret in ning a solid we.st-  errt majority of ofiuosition candidates  -will'work.    .Ynle-Ciribon h*s no more  A Change in the Conservative Candidates  Which will not Impair our Chances  '   of Success! *  Owing  to ,'privale  and busi'iiess Ten-  situs .Mr.  A., II.

A  writer in the London Standard says:  "That Ireland is a more fruitful  country than England, or Irish rar-  nn-rs are given to bragging rather  lha.n grumbling over their crops." At  p-iiy rate, the Irish Agriculturalist ro-  fiorxs all the crops good with the exception of potatoes,* which are t-er-  iousl'y affected with the rot. The  extent to which potato culture prevails over wheat is seen by the fact  that-'654,153-"acres'" were given to potatoes the past Beason. and only  C:,T97 acres; to wheat.

Thomas' Chalmers, of  the Canadian Mounted Rifles, who  recently met a glorious death while  assisting a wounded comrade in South  .Africa was well known throughout  the  Territories'.  I'or   :i.   number   of   years   lie   wan   :i  popular  and   efficient    ollirer     In   the  North   "West   llounted   pollie,   and   for  several   years   previous   to   his.  volunteering   for  service   in   the   South   African   war  had   been  engaged   in   the  profession   of   a   Dominion   land   sur-  \eyor at- Kdmnnton.      He had a host  of friends and no enemies.  i   -The  story  of  his   death   is best   told  in   th^-   words   or   General   Smllh-Uur-'  rleir.       llajor   Sanders     and   Captain  Chalmers   behaved,   with   groat   ga'-  I.'inlry in tlie action ot November 2nd.

Sanders,  was woundco  and   his   horso   was   killed,   and   Chal-  mei".-   went   to   his   assistance.      Han-  ders.   implored   him   to   leave,   bui   was  refusud.   and   the     gallant     Chalmers  was,  T grieve to say, killed.  vatc life sacred so lone as the lioss  and the back-door traducer are allowed ;to-exist. It must be admitted  that political life in Canada today IB  as low tt not lower than at any time  in the United States, all our boasting  to tlie contrary notwithstanding. We  hold'publle'meetings'and we pretend-  to discuss the public questions of the.  day, but -it Is very much lo be doubted J whether 'a perceptible percentage  of .the electorate Is influenced by this  means. Elections are not won by  public meetings, anymore than they  aro won by prayers. It Is tho whispered appeal to prejudice or the maliciously moulded lie which nowadays  secures thc vote.  The candidate may be an honorable,  upright man who flatters himself  that his success is due to his policy  or his platform. Little .does he  know of the influences that are exercised by his so-called friends to advance his interests. Canadian politics  have fallen very low, but yet not  low enough to justify the belief that  successful candidates are aware or all  the means which arc- resorted to by  thctr unscrupulous supporters to  secure their election. Tours truly,  nXLOOKBK-  Cnlprnry, November 13, 1900.  * <���������������  Upon ,mv  life,   said ��������� (plng.ping) -the  silly   old   wife,     (PlnK .

"We are  nailed. Driscoll," I shouted, "trapped  like  rats."      Not  yet,  sonny;    we ve  got a  good  chance yet."      His Irish  voice wns steady and calm now. Out  of his saddle he slipped, and running  to a cavo In the track ho dropped on  ono knee and begin to shoot. I saw a  mau ln a tweed suit leap halfway over  a hotilder,   then  sprawl  down on  top  of It on his heilv and lay where   he  sprawled.     Another  darted.,   from    a  rock toward  a clmnp  or bushes, hut  ho never reached them.    He stopped,  dropped  his  rifle,  and  tumbled hack-  wards towards thc spot he had started  from.    Then   the  rest  took  cover  like a lot of rock rabbits.   They knew  by this time that there    was n man  behind th'e ride In the top end of the  gullv. and. they knew too well that a  man and a rifle could do a. lot ln such  a position, and   they  did  not  dare  to  take any liberties.  Then thes cout rave me my orders  sarp and clear:���������"take the horse by  the head." he said, "and climb up the  side of this kopje. Keep your horse  between you and those fellows down  ther*.    I'll   drop   the  flrst  man  who  HE  ICNHW  shows himself. When you reach the  .top of the hill, put yonr horse over,  'and then'take cover. Don't expose  'yourself but make them think you  are there to shootj then I'll follow  you." I did not waste any time In  argument. -There was no time for  folly of that kind. But just lugging  mv'clever little Basuto by the bridle  we made the climb. It was a terribly  stiff place for a horse to go, but that  Neddy was as tricky as a cat on hia  feet One or twice I heard the bullets' whizzing overhead, but Dris-  coll's rifle cracked at thc same time,  and   I  knew there   was  little  danger  Hi" tho Volksraau weeks ' before.- the  war broke out In order to show what  manner oi man he Is. lie was not in  favor of tne war.

A cordial invitation is hereby extended to all pai-Uh:oiicrs, adherents, friends aud sti-ungei's.  Work is going on on the wagon road  and was prosecuted even during the  Mono cm Friday and Saturday. There  mv 20 men at work and il. will be quite  possible to keep that many and more  employed all winter, if the government "wishes". There is very little  snow in the canyon and the side of the  river batik is loose and easily   worked.  The sloi'tn. which started ou Thursday night and raged here all Friday.  Sa'turdiiy and Sunday. . was very  severe aiul caught a good many people  where, the wood and coal were short.  It seems to have raged nil over the  province to the coast. Yesleiday's  advices to the C. P. R. report the  -worst storm known in 25 years to be  raging on the plains.  Rev. .Iuo. Bennett Anderson, the  singing evangelist-from London, Bug,  preached in the Methodist church on  Sunday morning and evening. In  spite of the storm the congregations  were good and the sermons delivered  by Mr. Anderson, especially lhe evening discourse were greatly appreeiat-  .-(!. He will conduct special evangel-  i-lic services in the .Methodist church,  each night this week. Mr. Anderson  was chaplain to t.he Uitlanders at the  lime of the .laniieson raid and has seen  many thrilling experiences in various  parts of the world during his career as  a evangelist.  It seems as if the fates were ngainsl  Mr. Oliver in Revelstoke. His Hrst  meeting in- Mr. Galliher's interests  was, postponed because of a delayed  -train, his second was cancelled on  Fi'iilav night because of the sinrin.  ���������>irr-6liver_is���������iinite���������uiiu-of-the-inost-  ineresling personalities       among  western public men. He is a pioneer  of western journalism and the progress  of Northern Alberta has owed much  lo the constant advocacy nf the re-  s<mrce< ok the district in the Bulletin,  which Mr. Oliver established in Edmonton nearly 20 years ago. bringing  the plant across the plain a thousand  miles in  Red River carts.  ���������It is acknowledged hy the highest  authority thateye strain causes more  headaches than i.ll other reasons combined. From this fact it will readily  hi seen that llmixarxls of people are  suffering from headache who do not'  know that the cause is a defect of  vision, or a. weakness ot the eyes.
