B, Hume & Co,  Will Likely Ship 1000 Tons of  Ore   this  Winter,���������This Famous Property Never  ' Looked Better.  W. B.PooI, manager of the Grant  Western Mines Ltd.,.arrived in town  from the Laidcuunn Tuesday evening.  He reports everything ut the Nettie L.  iii the most satisfactory condition. A  force of 18 men is nt work and there  is 150 to 2C0 tons of Hrst class ore sacked up ready for shipment. Rawhid-  ing down the mountain to Ferguson  can commence ut once, as there was 14  inches of snow at the mine and 4 or 5  in Ferguson, when Mr. Pool left on  Sunday aud (here is probably more  now. Woik is going on at three  points. In thu crosscut ol'the south  drift, on which the new ledge was  struck, on a shaft which is heing Mink  at thu intersecction of this ciosscnt  and south drift, which it is, proposed  to sink 100 feet and on the drift along  the ledge in the lower workings, which  is now run 100,feet. Ore is being encountered in all the workings and Mr,  Pool thinks it likely that, the amount  taken out this winter in pure development work, without Moping at all,  will enable Lhe mine to ship about 1000  tons. The ore in the upper workings  is clean shipping ore and is being sacked without taking it to thu sorting  house. In the lower workings they  are diiving in a 40 foot ledge of ore  that will concentrate about six to one.  The workings have reached a stage  which discloi.es thu fact that an immense body.of ore, "a regular dyke of  ore" in fact to quote the words of an  expert, who recently visited the mine,  exists iu the Nettie L. Quite recently  aii offer of a lump sum, which would  have paid every dollar share in tlie  .Great. Western sixty cents was lefnsed  by the directors and there is little  doubt that after the next, shipment  the treasury shares will he held at a  dollar a piece. ,'  I  GREAT DEPARTMENTAL STORE  EI Presidente Cigars at Brown's.

PLEDGES REDEEMED !!!    WORSE THAN SAWDUST  ^ , i The Methodist Chaplain With the   Sec-  A NEW AND  REVISED   EDITION      ond    Canadiafl   Contingent   Testifies  That the Emergency   Rations   Were"  Rotten and Worthless.  Rev. W. G. Lane. Mdthddlst chaplain  with the second contingent in Soutb  Africa, has given Hon. F- W. Borden,  who ia having a lia-id fight in King'*  county, a serious blow. It seems that  "samples" of emergency rations werti  sent nut ahead of the regular supply,  of which Mr. Lane got two tins. These  samples were of superior quality, entirely unlike the supplies that followed.  TheChaplain used oneof theie "sample  tins, ancl the other he gave In sick  comrade. Just tin ee days after receiving them, hereceived a communication,  from the minister of militia, telling of  the proposed inquiry in parliament,  and asking him to m-ike a statement,  in regard lo the food. On t he strength  of trying this special sample lot, the'  chaplain added to his letter a favorable  note, which is now being circulated  through King's county. But the  gallant chaplain's experience and  report did not end here.  Four weeks afterwards the chaplain  again had occasion to receive pmeiv.  gency rations, and this time the stuff  '���������moved tube worse than S'lwdnsU"  Not only was it no good as a focal, hut  it was so unpalatable that it could not  be taken at all by him, and never  ufterw.ilds, although he saw a good  deal of the stuff, did he see a tin that  was fit for man or beast. Taking Dr'.  Borden at his word, and thinking he  was after the truth, and that some  fraud W4S lieing perpetrated on tho  government, Mr. Lane wrote the  Hon. minister of militia in regard to  t be issues of rotten and worthless food.  Further, to convince the minister of  militia of the correctness of his statement as to the utterly worthless:  character of the great hulk of the"  emergency food he procured on hia  re tin n to Cape Town f i om the military  stores, a case of this ration, which he  brought home across the Atlantic and  sent to Mr. Borden personally.  Rev. Mr. Lane does not hesitate- to  state his views on this matter, and ho  is prepared to substantiate his assertion regarding the wretched quality of  the emergency rations.

NO.  1.���������TARIFF.  We, the Liberal party in Canada, in  Convention assembled, Ottawa, June  1803, declai e:"  " That the customs tariff should he  based, not as it is now, upon the  protective principle, but upon the  requirements- of the public service;  that the existing .tariff, founded upon  an unsound pi inciple, and used, as it  has been by the government, as a  corrupting agency wherewith to keep  themselves in office, has developed  monopolies, trusts and conibin-itions:  It has decreased the value of farm and  oilier landed property; it has oppressed  the masses to the enrichment of a few;  it has checked immigration; it has  it has caused great loss of population;  it has impeded commerce: it has  discriminated against Great Britain."  Frank Oliver, M. P. for Alberta, was  a Liberal, when a. Liberal in Alberta  was looked upon as some kind of a  natural curiosity. Discussing the tariff  in the house in 1807 he said:  "I wish to say that there ' are  features in the tariff as it stands, which  are disappointing to the people when  considered in relation to the promises  wliich have been made, and tbe ideas  that have been gathered from the  past from the party .at present in  powei."  Mr. Oliver would have been worse  disappointed if he had known thalafter  making what the Liberal Editor of  Event's calls a "bluff' at reducing the  tariff, the. leaders of his paity# would  openly declare for the principle of  protection, which the Liberal platform  of'03stigmatised as unsound, corrupt,  oppressive and detrimental to the  country; if he could have known that  the finance minister of the Laurier  government would in thiee short  years declare th.it "it is wise to ha%-e a  tariff, . giving the manufaeturei-s a  reasonable degree- -of protection'  if he could have foretold that  in 1000 Laurier, his leader,  would tell the people of Monti eai,  Que., that free trade is ethically  right, but economically wrong; if he  could have forseen Mr. John Ohaalton,  28 years Liberal member for'Ncnth  Norfolk, would in his election address  in this campaign call for a duty of 50  percent, in order to- "create great  manufacturing interests in Canada; if  he could have known that after lyre of  government by-the party, which went  into power, basing its claim to the  verdict of the electors of Canada on  the very issue, the whole contention  between the principles- of- free trade  and protection would be-abandoned  openly and without any attempt at  explanation. , ' Pledge No.. 1. .'��������� The  Tariff," leaves the Grits free lo accept  one of two alternatives. Either they  did not mean what they said or they  did not know what they were' talking  about at the time they framed it.  PLANK NO.  2. - nECIPItOCITY.  "That,having regard to the prosperity  of Canada and the United States as  adjoining countries, with many  mutual interests, it is desirable lhat  there should be the most friendly  relations and broad and liberal trade  intercourse between them; that the  interests alike of the Dominion and of  the Empire would be materially advanced by the establishing of such  relations;  That lhe period ofthe old reciprocity  was one of marked prosperity to the  British North American colonies;  That the pretext under which the  government appealed io the country  in 1891 respecting negotiations for a  treaty with the United States was  misleading aud dishonest and intended  to_deceive the-electorale;. ��������� --   ��������� =-^-=  That no sincere effort has been  made by them lo,obtain a treaty, but,  lhat on the contrary, it is manifest  that the present government, controlled as they are by monopolies, are  not desirous of seeming such a  treaty;  That the first step towaids obtaining  the end in view is to place a party in  power who are sincerely desirous of  promoting a. tieaty on terms honorable  to both countries."  Only put us in and we will get  reciprocity. They came in. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, Sir Richard Cartwright, Sir Louis Davies and Mr.  John Charlton were appnintvd us commissioners. They spent six months  and $34,000 of Ihe taxpayers irioney  jutikoting with Uncle Sam s delegates.  And now Mr. Chailtou tells uh in his  election address :  " (Ay connection with the American  negotiation!! conducted by thu Joint  High CoiiiininMoii has led me to modify  lo some extent my views relating to  American trade relations, I have been  as you aie well awiue, an advocate of  reciprocal trade wilh the United  Stales, looking to the free admission  of our natuial products into the  umikelH of lhat country. I have  believed iu lhe past lhat au approach lo  the American government in it friendly  spirit would easily secure a fair,  equitable trade treaty, L am reluctantly led to the conclusion that it is  dou lit fill whether a treaty uponahro.id  and natisfactorv basis can be obtained  at least while the Republican party is  in power. Sir John A. Macdonald  once expressed himself as being in  favor of reciprocity of tariffs. I look  with a greater degree of favor upon his  views in relation to this matter than I  lormerly did."  Plank No, 2, " Reciprocity," shows  very clearly on their own confession  that the event proved that in not going  cap in hand to Washington to ask for  reciprocity of trade, the Conservatives  acted with a great deal more sagacity  and regard for tbe dignity of tw:  country than their over-confident  critics.  FIRST BLOOD  IMPROVED   BALLOTS .  An Improvement in tbe   Printing:   Will-  Make Less Spoiling^ In Future.  Mr. D. J. McDonald,  the  returning-'  officer, states thatan improvement haa-  been made in the new   ballots   which-  are to be used at the forthcoming election, says the   Rossland  Miner.     On'   -  the old ballot, against lhe namenf each' .,  candidate which was printed' within a-  black block, was left a circular disc  on-  which cross had to be placed.     If   the'  cross was not placed.within the disc-  alt hough opposite In the name of- the'  candidate, the ballot was often thrown1  out, although there would seem lo he' -  no reasonable doubt as tothe intention1  of the voter.  Under the   new   system   the "black- --  block's, or. parallelograms are still  left,,  hut they aie placed an inch apart' and  heiweenVaclrpair-is set-thefname'of-nT^-  candidate, m oilier words tlie names of"  the  candidates are separated  hy the  blocks referred to.   Tii signify his in--  lention. all that the voter has to do is-  to place the. cross miy where opposite to*  the name of his choice.    It.is  thought  that lhis method   will   koep   many   a-  h.illot which, under   the   disc   system-  would probably have to be rejected.  There ie also another point to which  the retnriiing office called attention'  and that is tire freedom of the voter  to vote nny whet e within his riding.  Thus a Rossland .voter can vote at-  Trail or a (ireenwood voter could vote-  here if lie so desired. It is not necessary that the voter should be withih-  liisown city to vote so lung as he i������  within the electoral district.���������Slocan-  Record.

THE CROWS   NEST DEAL  The Liberals today claim credit for  the construction of the Crow's Nest  railway.  The construction of the Crow's Nest  railway  waB  agreed   upon  before  the  Conservatives were turned out, and a  contract hud boon completed whereby  tho  C.P.R.  was  to    get  a   bonus  of  ?5000 per mile and a loan, tho repayment) of which was guaranteed.  The  Liberals   tore up   the   contract,-.gave  a bonus ot $11,000 per mile and handed over  Uio Crow's Nest coal    lands  to Cox and  Jaffray of  the    Toronto  Globe.     The    supposed     control     of  freight rates Is a myth, and the C.P.U.  made   a  clean   million  of  dollars   on  thc deal.

TOO  ENGLISH  FOR  ME,  Sir   Charles .Tupper ;has -again   repudiated, the false aiid "malicious election  cry -raised   against  him   in    the  English     speaking     districts. Sir  Charles never said Sir Wilfrid is  Jtoo English for me." What he did  say., was said in connexion wilh Sir  Wilfrid's absurd proposition to transfer to England llie power .of imposing taxation "on the people of Canada.  Here is Sir Charles' specific denial  iu bis speech at Toronto,' on October  20th: . ���������  "I challenge his statement iu the  face of the Canadian people when he  represented me <is having said In that  speech to which I have referred: "Sir  Wilfrid Laurier is too English for  me." I say lhat it is an unfounded,  baw and absolute misrepresentation.  What I did say was this: That Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's policy of transferring ths powers of imposing taxation  to England to tax the people'of Canada was  too English  for mc."  And  every   Canadian   who   is   loyal  to   his  country  Charles.

I  might,  did   I  care to do so,  challenge,  without fear,  a comparison of my public  record aud party service with that of I  this   colleaguo   of  yours,   for   a  man  who never made or sought to make  a dollar out of politics need not hesitate   to  invite    such    a' comparison  between   himself  and    one   who   has  become wealthy by making the most  of his opport'uniUes.    But permit me  to say that neither my reputaion as  a man or a politician, or the motives  that may influence me in making them  aro of consequence ln matters of this  kind.  The question Is: Are the charges  I have made true? If they are not,  you owe It yourself, to your party,  and to tho country to deny them, deny  them speciflcally and give evidence  In' support of your denial. I say you  owo this to your country, as well as  to yourself and tho party, for'it will  not bo held by any honorable man  that thc country is not vitally interested in knowing whether ' the men  entrusted with Its government arc  or aro not promise-breakers and  traitors to. principle.  You arc to speak tonight iu this  city. May I ask you to take your  audience Into your confidence,, and  say whether or not tho charges' I  have mado be true. Do not--content  yourself with glittering and meaningless generalItiics, but speak plainly,  so that. If I have- accused you and  your colleagues wrongfully thc public, and particular.^- the rank and  file of your party",' may know lt.  In order that Sir Wilfrid might  more .easily meet the 'charges, Mr.  Cook repeated them ln his letter.   ���������  And what was Laurier's reply? Not  one word; not even the slightest allusion to Mr. Cook or his charges. Sir  Wilfrid could not controvert- one of  the charges, and,he Ignored them all.  We do not think tho people of Canada will need any further evidence of  the absolute truth of the charges made  by Mr. Cook.

Winnipeg,  Oct.   27.-A  Brandon  despatch  says:      "TUere seems   to be   a  growing    feeling    favorable    to Hon.  Hugh John Macdonald on account of  his honorable dealing with his promise  regarding a prohibitory act, and many  are going to vote for Hugh John for  the reason thnt they believe they can  trust him to do all i������ his power to do  what he promises.     A ven' prominent  temperance  organizer  Is   authority  in  part for the statement as to this tendency,     whicli   will   lead    to      moro  independent action at the polls, than,  perhaps, has been seen in any contest  previously held here.     Many arc getting  away from  the    fact    that  they  were Liberal or Conservative, and are  quietly weighing the matter for themselves.     The Conservatives   say today  that they have reports from rural districts and outside villages which place  the   certain elecUon   of    Hugh    John  Macdonald beyond a doubt.

The Only Conclusion Possible  Toronto gave Sir Wlifrid Laurier a  grand reception the other night.    The  thing was well done.    No expense was  spared, and all  that money could do  to create enthusiasm was done.    The  army of Wasliee  Clarks    maintained  by the people ot Ontario  in  the provincial  offices of Toronto  is' iii  itself  big enough to fill the hall, and    this  army of paid parllots was augmented  by many willing to eulist in the same  cause.    Every   band   iu   Toronto   was  hired for the occasion, and one bund  disgraced   the  British   khaki   uniform  by wearing it to do honor to the man  who  refused   to  send   help  to    Great  Britain in the  African  war.    Delegations from outlying cities, towns   aud  villages added  to the  throng,  and the  reception was a grand success.  There were many speakers, but Sir  Wilfrid Laurier was the chief centre  of interest. He said nothing: new. Ho  completely Ignored his master.

Mr.Roche  opened  the   meeting .going  over   the  H. H. Cook and Yukon charges,    the  promises ,of   free  agricultural   implements,  and  spoke  for  an  hour.    Mr.  Fraser   of   Brandon   spoke     for     Mr.  Sifton and w-as well received. He replied to Mr. Roche in a very able and  convincing  manner and  claimed  that  coal oil was six cents a gallon cheaper now than under conservative rule.  Mr.  Macdonald  was presented  with  an address by the local Conservatives  and   a   bouquet   by  Miss   Jones.       He  said that Sir Hibbert Tupper made out  a  good case  against    Mr.  S'.tfon    at.  Brandon.       Mr.   Philps   apology   had  nothlns to do with the charges    read.

Mr.    Bennett,    although sllmly built  is all    bono and  muscle, and wiry as an eel.     He is an  expert fencer, and his rapier Is as keen  edged as a Damascus blade;   He is es-  pecialy good at the thrust.    His opponent,  who has a more  solid frame,  relies more  on  the parry  or defence,  and will be- armed with a stout bludgeon. Both participants in tho coming  fray  are undergoing a regular course  of  training  under the  supervision of  their     supporters.      Immediately     on  rising  a cold  plunge Is   taken,   after  which a slight breakfast consisting or  raw meat, a cup of coffe*. and some  dry toast, a sharp walk of four or live  miles,   then   slight    luncheon   of    flsh,  which   Is   a  great   brain   producer,   a  drive  for   an-hour  or    two*   a  frugal  supper of  mush,   and    after a short  study of Hansard, a long night's rest.  This treatment, of course. Is varied a  little to suit tho Atberta weather. Enormous sums of money have been laid  on the result, tho betting being even.  Already  public interest  in  the  affair  has risen to fever heat.     An Immense  crowd Is expected to witness the groat  event.     Seats in the amphitheatre are  being   sold   at   a   high   premium.   Mr.  Oliver Is no notice at this method of  warfare, as he haa   appeared    in the  ring before,  and  U will take a clever  gladiator  to  give him tho knock-out  blow.     Several preliminary encounters  have taken place    between    tho   two  candidates,   but  at  this  stage   of the  game it is impossible to say who is the  favorite.    Each has his special points.  Mr. Be-mett. the younger man, plumes  hlmselt on his power as a rhetorician,  and  not  without  grouds,   for  he ib a.  great declaimor and ln contests of this  kind,   a fluency of speech and quickness of repartee tell'more than blows.

What necessity there' was for this  drop of poison to he instilled into my  mind I could not see.

"Yes. Nellie .seems to bo a very  nlce~ girl," ^she admitted, "but I suppose you-.know that sho is a poor-  house waif."  "No," I said. I knew nothing of  the kind. Mrs. Gray had introduced Nollie to me as her eldest daughter, and the information volunteered  by Mrs "But" was utterly uncalled for.

Wells, Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, who.  wilh H. C. Killeen. the superintendent  of roads, was here on Tuesday, found  Ml the t enders for the conl ract {on the  first seci'oi of the Big Bend wagon  ruud too high and decided uot^ to  accept anv of them. Mr. Wells  returned that evening to Victoria, hut  Mr.Killeen is still here. - Whether or  Dot the Department intends to make  miiv move bv dav laboron the road this  fall, the Hekald has no information.  An entertainment, which is being  got up by the Talent Sncity of St.  Peter's church, will come off early next  month. The ���������1irogr:imme includes a two  act comedietta. "A Box of.Monkcys"  ii verv aumsing societv skit, in which  Mrs. 'Hearn. Mrs. Wilkes and Mrs.  Holten und C. J. Wilkes and C. b.  Shaw are cast and wliich calls for a  very prettv ball room scene in which  a gavotte "will be danced hy six couples  pondreo. A number nf living pictures  .are also included in the proisraimiie.  which piesents surface indications of a  verv taking show.  It is now announced chut the lenders  for the first three and a half miles of  the proposed Big Bend wagon road are  nil too high nnd that no contract is to  be let. It is getting about time that  this dilly dallying came to an end.  By this lime there might have been a  couple of months woik done ou that  road, if the department of Lands &  Works had gone to work energetically  about it, with an honest desire to  satisfy the just demands of Revelstoke  for the completion of this important  work. But instead of that we have  had one delay al'tur another, the work  has been put off without any adequate  reason being assigned and all we have  for I.he fall's work is an nnconipleled  survey. No wonder that, people are  saying that the reason why the road  is not being built is because the Commissioner of Lands & Works does not  want it to be built been use it is not to  the interests of his own constituency  tiiat it should lie.  Itevclstoke is not asking for this  road simply to get a road built or to  gel. some government money spent in  Xhis constituency. Thu provincial  government owes this road lo this  district and to the whole province, Cor  which it would, if built, prove one of  the best investments in the way of  increase of revenue of nny public work  yet undertaken m British Columbia.  It is the often expressed opinion of  mining men, who have visited the Big  Bend district that for inilicalions of  mineral wealth the country south ol'  us is not in it. Asttis, it has beenfornll  Ihese years, locked up for lack of proper facilities of transportation.. Had  the government of this province been  alive to -ils opportunities, that road  would have been build (en or twelve  veins ago. If that hail been done  lievelstoke would now lie. a place of  ten thousand of a population and a  distributing point for twenty or thiriy  live mining camps, for a big lumber  industry, for a considerable agricultural and cattle raising population in  the broad valleys of tlie Fraser ami  Canoe rivers and for a score of big  mica, mines around Tete Jamie Cache.  Iu the name of the people of Kevelstoke. the Hkrald demands that, tlu-re  shall "lie no more delay aliout the  mactcr, that the government shall  give the depart merit, of Lands &  Works lo understand lhat no more of  its present policy of dilly dallying and  shuffling will he. tolerated, and that  the cabinet shall inake^tHi's*-grear  tt'iuik road a, big feature of its own  policy and push it through to completion as a" great measure of development for the benefit of the whole  province.
