Although Lardeau's development is  temporarily checked by lack, of transport facilities and consequent excessive  lost of ore shipment, several of its  richest mines either are making or  will make fair shipments. The owners  lake can; of course to send out for  treatment only tho highest grade of  ore from tlie mines, but this is quite  excusable if not absolutely necessary,  \\ here transport and treatment charges  together run to between $10 and $50 a  ton. Notwithstanding this, the Triune  mine, near Ferguson, hasby making a  SliipmentTor "nearly-twenty tons ol"  $200 ore, become a payer from the  grass roots and encouraged its owners'  hopes <>f sending several other lots to  Trail by.the clo-e of the year. The  owners of two or three Lardeau mines  have also ore sufficiently rich to stand  thoproseiiipioavy eost of shipment and  treatment and are consequently likely  in the course of the next few months  to t-hip several hundred tons of ore  from this locality.. The Lardeau ores  now being shipped ai e not only of high  grade in silver and lead but also contain  milch gold, and judging by the begin-  nirifts now being made, it senilis not  unlikely Unit coitain of the best  Lai'deaii.properties may rival iu point  of both production and value the  substantial and profit earning mines  of the Slocan.���������Alining Record.  A Hot Water Lake In East' Kootenay.  The Canterbury "Outcrop" says;���������  While prospecting about 40 miles up  the north foil; of Horse Thief creek.  Frank Stockdale discoveri-d a lake nf;  hot water about S.00O feet* above the  sea level. He states that the water is  so hot that he'conld not bathe in it.  The lake is situated on the su-nmit ot  tlie range of mountains which divide  Horse Thief and Number Two creeks,  and is the uppermost one of three lakes.  The other two arc of cold water and  each is about a quarter of a mile below  the hot one, which is on the very top  of the divide. The day he was there  the hot water lake seemed to be much  higher than usual as around the edge  there was gr'iss for aliout ten feet out  in tlie water. The lake appeared to be  very deep in the centre and the water  a very dark blue, similar to that of  Lakes Superior and Ontario. Jlr.

Kenyon, of D  battery. South Africa, gives the  unprejudiced opinion of a soldier who  has Ind actual experience with the  notorious emergency rations, which  the Liberal niajorilv iu parliament  endorsed as being "a wholesome and  serviceable ration'':  "T sec by the papers that the government, is having it hot. time over tin*  emergency ration. Well, to tell the  truth, it is 'totteii,' or, in mure polite  language, 'not worth a cent.' It looks  like lii'.in and has no substance at all.  The label says it is delicious with soup,  but. when there is soup you don't gci  emergency i allocs. One thing that  speaks very badly for it is that two oi  three largo boxes which were lying  open "wore never touched for a few.'  [f it hud been the English ration it  would have been 'out of sight' in short  order.

The Government press will not help  their cause by a campaign of disparagement of lion. Hugh John  Macdonald. There is no hihii in public  life in Canada to day who stands so  high with th-it part of the electorate  which puts simple, old fashioned  honesty before everything else, as the  Premier of the Province of Manitoba.  Although he has not liPen an-active  factor in the political life of tlie Dominion for very long, he has  managed to convince the people from  one end of the. country to the other  that he possesses the vii'tiujnf sincerity  to a much larger degree than the  average politician. His conduct since  becoming Premier of the Prairie  Province has established his reputation  as a man who carries out his pledges.  This is particularly valuable at the  present time by reason of the fact that  the government which he is opposing  has eminently failed at that point.  In addition, however, to the faithful  fulfilment of-his promises. Hugh John  Macdonald has displayed an unselfish  desire to advance .what..he. conceives  to he the .interests of the people at  large by abandoning a lucrative and  honorable post as premier of Manitoba  to take the chances in what will be a  very difficult contest,- the ultimate  reward being a portfolio in the po-  minion Ministry, wliich, in the general  estimation, would be a position nf  lesser dignity aud importance than  the tine that he vacates.  The Liberal newspapers throughout  tha country will have some difficulty  in convincing'the hard headed, and  thoughtful farmers of Canada that, in  making this sacrifice Mr. Macdonald is  actuated by ������elfish motives, and their  attempts to disparage and minimise  his influence will certainly locoil upon  their own party. Hon. Hugh John  Macdonald stands to day as. the most  picturesque and admiiable figure in  Canadian public life, and it is bad  politics on the part of Jiis opponents io  do anything that will have lhe etrect  o,f directing attention lo his excellent  .pj.irts.J_Qi:iiiige.*SeB,t.inel.=j_=.���������*-.-_���������_   "BOBS"  FAREWELL  Compliments the Canadians at Their  Departure, From Pretoria.  Piietoria, Sept, 25.���������Field Marshal  Lord Koberts. in the presence of Lady  Roberts and his daughters, reviewed  the Canadians on the eve of their departure to day. It was a brilliant  scene, the men, who are in excellent  health, making a splendid appearance.  After the match past. Lord Rohert.s  addressed them luiefly. He said: "I  cannot allow yon to depart without  expressing my thanks for, and  appreciation of your loyal services  and excellent work, especially nt  Paardeberg. on February IS. I auf'  sure that tho people of Canada will he'  pleased so hear how gallantly and how  splendidly yon have all behaved ill*  action.

When Hugh John Macdonald first  appeared in the Dominion contest the*  Montreal Herald devoted columns of  space to lieiutllng him. This was followed by a frenzied attempt, lasting  several days, to prove that Hugh  Julia's appearance was a stab at .the  Liberal Conservative leader, Kir Chas.  Tupper, the Herald's hope being- to  cause trouble iii the Conservative  ranks. This falling, thc same' rnhld  Grit sheet undertook to prove that  Hugh John had been proven a failure  at all his . public meet ings. And now  the Herald has come down t*-> abuse,  which Is good proof that the- Grits  realize Hugh  John Is some pumpkins  after all.   o   WANDERER'S RETURNING  1.

Nelson   Miner:     John     Houston's  action in pledging himself to the support of the Liberal-Conservative nom-  minee   for   the   Yale-Cariboo   district  in the ensuing general elections came  like a, thunderbolt from   a clear sky  into the  ibcral camp    of the Nelson  district.    Mr. Houston was successful  in securing    the support    of a large  number of Liberals, who claimed hiin  then to he its good a Liberal as any  in Nelson.    As a Liberal  Mr. W. A.  Galliher supported  him  and  probably  did  more   than   any  other  one  man,  with the  exception    of  Mr.  Houston  himself,   to  secure  that    gentleman's  election.    For this Mr.    Galliher   and  his friends counted upon Mr.Houston's  support of Mr. Galliher as the Liberal  nominee In Yale-Cariboo.   It had not  even been  intimated  to any    of    the  Liberals that Mr.  Houston  would decline   to   support  Mr.   Galliher    and  everywhere It was taken  tor granted  that such support would be forthcoming.    The columns of    Mr. Houston's  paper   certainly  created   this   impression for upon every possible occasion  The"-Tribune had  something pleasant  to  say  of  the Liberal  nominee.      A  wondrous  change  had  been  wrought,  j however.    Last   night    Mr.   Houston  (joined  the Liberal-Conservative asso-  ��������� ciation,   pledged   himself  to    support  Mr.   Galliher's  opponent  and   cheered  with  the others for Sir "Charles Tupper  and   Hugh   John   Macdonald.   He  did  It all, too. of his  own  free will.  No combination of circumstances forced him to act. as he  did.      He    has  broken  away  from   the  Liberals  and  burned   his   bridges   behind   him.   He  has taken .���������with him  a portion of his  personal following, a following which  would   have  otherwise   probably  supported   Mr.   Galliher.

Old Country Turf Events Reviewed by  the Herald's Racing Authority  The great St. Leger is over aud  the Prince of Wales' Diamond Jubilee is now enrolled among the winners of thc "triple crown,' as it is  tho fashion to call the animals who  carry off thc three great classic races:  Two Thousand Guineas, Epsom Derby  and Doncaster St. Leger. These triple  events, however, are becoming a  trifle monotonous. It is a mooted point  whether a penalty on Derby or Guinea  winners in the last race would not  be better for the Interests of sport.  However Diamond Jubilee is so  good, and tho others of his year so  poor; that it would probably have  taken a pretty heavy penalty to stop  him last Wednesday.  The first time a Derby winner was  successful    in     the    St.   Leger    was  exactly 100 years ago, when Mr. Neil-  son's Champion, was the hero of the  double event.   Then, tor 17 or 18 years  tho  Derby  victor  did  not put iu an  appearance' at  all   at  Doncastor.  tho  reason heing no doubt that thc length  or the journey, which they had to perform ou foot, was too great to make  it   worth   while,     the    comparatively  small  value  of  tlie  stake  being considered.    As the St. Legor event grew  ! more   valuable   however,   the    Derby  horses   went   for   It   more   frequently,  only however to bo uniformly beaten.  Tho single grey Derby winner Gusta- *  vus.  tried  iu  1821.  and failed utterly.  Tho   incomparable   I'riam   could   only  finish second in 1S30, though his party  offered      to    run    over    again   and  give some weight, which proposal was  refused.     There   is   little   doubt   that  some  of  them   ought  to   have    won.  IMamaluUe in 1S27 was run out of the  race by  a  system    of    false   starts;  I Plenipotentiary in 1S34 was poisoned;  but still the  fact  remains that none  of the them did win until Lord George  Bentinck's   plan     of   carrying    race  horses to the scene of action in vans  drawn  by  other    horse    came    into  general use, when it became quite    a  common  thing.    The   next  horse    to  Champion   to   win   both   Derby     and  Leger, 'was  Surplice,   4S  years  afterwards, and the first horse to carry off  the  triple  event���������the  Two  Thousand  being the first ofthe series���������was West  Australian in 1853.    Again there was  a  great break;     Gladiator,    a    good  horse in a poor year���������being tlie next  winner of  the  triple  crown   in  lS(i5.  1 Since that date thoy have been fairly  [plentiful,  numbering altogether,   with  I the two named, nine.

Simple  as  tins  precaution may seem to be, experience  has show" that It is necessary, as it is  generally    believed  that    the    plague  gained  a  foothold    both  in  Australia  nnd  India   through   being  carried  o"  shore  by  rats leaving the  ships  over  the  hawsers.

Winnipeg, moved the following am  endment to -the uKeculivi" report:  "That in the opinion of this congress  the result of a referendum vote on  independent political action Is of sufficient strength to justify the congress  m taking such steps as may be deemed advisable to further llie progress  of such action."  Mr. Mortimer speaking to his amendment said that the vote taken at  the last meeting of the Congress warranted the formation of an independent political party. He did not  believe that the Congress should be  guided by bodies who were not afliil-  iated with the Congress. He thought  the committee' were trying to throw  cold water on the matter.  Delegate O'Donohue said that lie  did not intend the resolution to pass  with silence. He said the labor element as a whole were not so well educated aa he would like to see them.  He was fjulto satisfied to see labor  candidates nominated in a field where  oportunity presented itself, but he  thought It would be an unwise course  to put up candidates throughout the  country.  Delegate Fitzpatrick. of Montreal,  saw no hope for an independent political party, as they had previous experience on the same line.-:. He would  hold for the adoption of the report.  After a few remarks by Delegate  Mortimer, the mowr. and Delegate  Carey, chairman of the committee, the  amendment was carried by 30 to 22.  All the western delegates voted for  it and a great many of Ontario,  while Quebec wa.s pretty solid  against It.   o   TUPPER'S TRIUMPHAL TOUR  STEAM BARGE WRECKED  Port Arthur, Sep. 21.���������The Canadian  sicr.m barge St. Andrew, was wrecked this morning on Blunchar island,  near Black bay, -10 miles from hero.

Strathroy, Sep. 22.���������The political  meeting held here yesterday was not  so large as some that have taken place  duri*'s thn present tour of Sir Charles  Tupper and colleagues. The chief  reason for this was that it was impossible to havo tho gathering in open  air and at the last moment the opera  house had to be engaged. Tt is a  building of fair proportions for a town  of this size, but hardly commodious  enough for the purposes of a great  political demonstration. Sir Charles  and-his colleagues were met at the  London station yesterday morning by  Major Beatty, member for that riding,  Messrs. Hugh John Macdonald. J. P.  Whitney and Major Beatty went to  Watford to address the electors there.  The understanding being that they  would return to Strathroy later In the  afternoon. Sir Cliarles Tupper and Mr.  Foster dropped off here, being met by  tho Strathroy band, nnd also by the  band from rarkhlll. the latter being  accompanied by a piper, who was one  of the attractions of the day. The  visiting speakers were escorted at once  to the hotel. After dinner a procession was formed and paraded through  the principal streets of the city.  When they arrived at the hall they  round it well fllled.

He  said: "Our opponents assert that wo  deliberately provoked a war for which  we made no preparation. The first  statement is untrue and the second is  generally exaggerated. The war was  forced upon us by a sudden invasion  while the negotiations, conducted with  the greatest moderation on our part,  were pending."  Mr. Chamberlain then reviews the  causes of the war briefly and the  "immense and successful exertions"  of the war office at considerable  length. In conclusion he declares that  to return the Unionists to power  would mean to conserve ths fruits of  victory which otherwise would be  thrown   away.  Arthur J.

Tlie IIkkai.d  fet'ls sure that tbe extremely worthy  ���������object of this entiM'tainiBtiiiL will eu-  j������uie its -iiirf-css.  The Nelson Tribune states that the  Oonservatives of Kevelstoke complain  i.lnit. the local association does not  represent, the party. Ynu will always  ind in any society, association or cor-  lor.-ilion of any kind a cettain element  .vhich .'il'ter leaving a, few active  iiiembci's lo do all the work, will turn  round and complain that these  men are trying lo run t.lm whole show  ind lhat the rankand llie are not fairly  represented. This feature is not at, all  peculiar to polii iciil associations. Other  -ocicl ies sull'ei' from it bui, Ihey go on  doing lheir work all tliu same. But,  thu Tribune seems to think I hai  liei niii-u two-thirds of the members ot  a political party are too indilYerei.t lo  belong lo an association nt, all exci'i'il  |xissibly for the last couple of weeks of  a contested elect inn and two thirds of  (he leniaiuing third who do lielong  are too indifferent to attend its meetings," llierefore that is an excellent,  reason for "smashing" tlie associations  altogether and incidently for covering  witli all 1 he obloquy ut ils command  the men who do tlie. work. What  does the. Tribune propose to put in the  place of those associations after ihe  rank and file of the parly have smashed Ihem as it advises ? How does it  propose for instance to get the feeling  of a constituency with regard lo ;t  candidate. If by a convention of  delegates l'rom the dill'eretit points in  thc riding, how and by whom are  these delegates to be elected. There  must besotneniei.'tingjnl' tlie adherents  of the party to perform this work.  Does the Tribune suppose that, such  meetings would be more generally  attended or more thoroughly representative of the party if there were no  political associations to call them or  that the fact that associations had  been smashed would so alter human  nature that such meetings would not  be swayed by thc usual small handful  of men, who touk sufficient interest in  the mutter to make:* some concerted  plan beforehand. " Take the very case  which the Tribune quotes in point. It  claims Unit, the rank and file, there has  smashed the association machine.  Granted that, this is the eitau what  have they substituted in its place.  One man instead of perhaps half a  dozen. Instead of as the Tribune puts  it "a few sellish self-seekers"--John  Houston. AVhat difference does that  iiiake?  NOTE AND COMMENT  Says the Kossl.-ind Miner speaking  of Mr. Tartu's "past indiscreet uttei-  Liiccs and rabid   Anti-British   leaning"  That iir Tarte was guilty ol' uttet-  tnces .wliich were absolutely di.-luynl.  there is no doubt, and liis denials  published and circulated by Liberal  newspapers will hardly be accepted by  tlie country. Tlie great majority nf  good Liberals throughout Canada  would be heartily glad lo see him. on  .-���������ccouiit of his past deliverances, which  were calculated loo to embarrass the  government, eliminated from the  public life of the Dominion, and anv  efforts which might be made toward-?  that end by the Conservatives would  meet, witli 11 great deal of sympathy in  Mr. Tarte's own party.
