SOME SURPRISING RETURNS FROM ALL ALONG THE LINE  Montr-.-.ax, November 7.���The  elections throughout the Dominion  today resulted in a sweeping vie-.  Lory for the Liberals. A remarkable feature of the contest was the  fact that every member of the government was returned, while every  Conservative leader of any prominence, witli the exception of Ilag-  gaitand Charles Hibbert Tupper,  were defeated. Hugh John Macdonald, who was looked upon as  the coming leader of tho party was  defeated by Hon. Clifford Sifton in  Brandon, sir Charles Tupper was  defeated in Nova Scotia, Montague  was defeated in Haldimand, and  Foster was snowed under by Blair  in St. John.  - Prom the returns available it ap-  " pears that the Conservatives made  a net gain of about 14 seats in Ontario and three in Manitoba. In  tlio Territories and British Columbia no change was made in tho  -respective strength of the parties.  Hi Prince Edward island the Liberals made a net gain of one/ seat.  In New Brunswick they gained five.  In Nova Scotia they gained six;  and in Quebec they gained ten.  These figures give a gain of seventeen seats for the. Conservatives as  against a' Rain of twent3r-two for  the Liberals, which would make  the Liberal. majority greater  by five, from the returns available,"  than it Avas in the last house.  Mor-  with  ~ ��   BRITISH   COLUMBIA;  Now* Westminster���Aulay  rison, Liberal, was re-elected  250 majority over Hon. Edgar  Dewdnoy, formerly lieutenant-governor of the province, who made  the race in the Conservative interest.  ��� Vancouver Island���Ralph Smith,  tho labor leader, defeated Sloan, Independent Liberal and Clive Phillips-Wolley Conservative. Smith's  majority is placed at 300.  Victoria���Earle and Prior, tlie  Conservative candidates, defeated  Drury Riley aud The Mint, the Liberal combination. Earle and Prior's  majority is in the neighborhood of  200, which is about the same as that  secured by them in 1890.  Burrard���Polling takes place on  December 0 th.  ==Yale-Oariboo���Bolling-takes-place=  on November 21st.  MANITOBA.  The returns from Manitoba indicate that hon. Clifford Sifton is the  only straight Liberal candidate returned from the prairie province.  The latest returns place his majority over Hugh John Macdonald at  800. Richardson the fighting Liberal defeated the straight Liberal  candidate in-Lisgar with a substantial majority and all other seats  were carried by straight Conservatives, save Winnipeg, where Puttee,  the Labor candidate defeated E. D.  Martin who ran as an Independent  Liberal. The returns received indicate the loss of three seats by the  government.  Brandon���Hon.

In the Territories the indications  are that the government will gain  one seat and lose another.    The re  turns' are incomplete from West  Assiniboia, but they point to the  defeat of Nicolas Flood Davin, the  former Conservative member, while  Douglas, the Liberal member for  East Assinboia, is probably defeated  by Lake:  Alberta���Frank Oliver, Liberal,  had a lead of 220 fover Bennett at  last accounts with several places to  hear from.  Assinboia���R. S. Lake, Conservative, elected over Douglas who was  returned in 1890 with a. niajority(of  1054. Lake's majority has not yet  been ascertained.  Assiniboia West���Walter Scott,  Liberal, has probably defeated  Nicolas Flood Davin, Conservative,  who was returned in 1896 by the  returning officer's vote. Both candidates were, newspaper men. Scott  at one time served as printer's devil  in Davin's printing office. He  afterwards purchased the" paper,  the Regina Leader, and now probably has" Davin's chair in the  house of commons.

Several  features have combined to make  the case notable and it is extremely  probable that the suit "will be  quoted as a precedent in the many  mining actions of the future.  When the evidence was all in Mr.  justice   Walkem   stated   that  the  case   was   so   important   that   he  would put his judgment in wiiting,  and as there was a dispute about  plaintiff Manley's evidence on some  important   points   he   would wait  until the shorthand reporter's notes  were , extended   before    giving' a  decision.   In * answer to an observation of   counsel, the -judge remarked that if his . recollection   of  Mr. Manley's evidence was accurate  judgment must be given   for   him.  In his opinion, as he was now asked  for it, there had been   a   combination or, as counsel for the defence  put it, a conspiracy, between   Hal-  let, Cooper and   Halpin   to   evade  that part of the mineral act which  requires a locator to abandon   his  claim to'get permission   from   the'  gold commissioner if he wishes to  ���relocate.   The ground in dispute in  -this action, was a strip lying ber  tween the,Arlington and Bnrling-  "ton claims' in,both of which   there  is a definedAyeih which was proved  to run throtigh the strip   in .question.    Halpin had located the strip  as ho had a perfect right to do   although foreman at   the   Arlington  property.   He said' he ��� abandoned  hislocationbecause he had not taken  in the wholeof.thestrip,butthe judge  considered this to be incredible, 'for  what. ,Tfallet-had.-* located he knew,  to bo valuable and his .lordship considered Hallet had not given the  true reason for the abandonment.  Hallet possibly thought as foreman  of the Arlington he could not hold  the ground!   At all events he put  his abandonment in   writing and  when on the way to record it,  by  what appeared to be a remarkable  coincidence, met Cooper aud  told  the latter what he was about to do.  This happened as early as 10 o'clock  in    the    morning   and   after    the  abandonment was recorded Cooperfl  staked the ground in the name.: ofj  one Halpin  whose miner's license)!  was borrowed for the occasion." At";  the   time   Halpin  lent his license;i  Cooper    took   two   bills   of/sale.vj  one for a half interest to" '"himself^  and the other to Hallet. '   ;-���"  The whole transaction,  his lord-^  ship continued, was tootransparentj  to deceive   anyone.    Cooper's-'evi'S  dence was given in a straight'^forj.  ward mauner and led to the conclu-"|'  sion that the re-recording'= in . Hairpin's name was merely a blind on.)  Hallet's part to get over the neces-i  sity of securing the gold  commis^  sioner's consent to re-record.   *Mr^  Manley iu  giving evidence statedjl  most positively   that; he Jvvas- ��nbi  party to this attempt to evade''the/  act, that he knew nothing of it and|  his purchase from Hallet foi\$5qtip��  $2000 of which  was paid" in -casb^  was made in good faith.       .' >��� "."-'''J  . Mr. justice Walkem observed fur^  ther that unless' it was shown "con-0  clusively from the reporter's notes)  that Manley  was aware of what;  Cooper and-Hallet had done." with";  respect to the evasion of the law**-  which was legally "if not -morally^  wrong, he could not be deprived.'off  ���his interest in the claim by'the^deT  fendant, who had located it..in'tfie,?  belief, that Manley. was more,qr lessG  implicated in the illegal transaction'  with" Cooper   and   Hallet. y-ThereJ  were several objections raisedib*y|  counsel .for   the, defense,   ampng��  these being the mattersOof''miriers*4  licenses   and   the   records,'": which.;  were "previously- decided-in" favor-'pff  the ��� plaintiff.'     The' .judge,' said;  he would rather, review -^Manley's"!  evidence in   full   before ��� giving 'or  written   decision. ��� He ��� considered;';  however, if he hekLthat a purchase,'  of a claim was. bound by ji" secret"  ���arid.illegaragreement'such as -that  made between" nooper. and Hallet^  in the mountains  of whicli there;  could be no record,  the* titles to',  most of the claims in ,the district^  would be extremely unsafe and*1 a'  purchaser would never know where1  he stood.   Manley had stated posi->  tivol'y,tliat he had searchedall the  records and  satisfied himself that"  the ground in issue had been proper-*  ly staked andjthis was all any pur-'  chaser could be expected to do.     *.<*.

Receiving the News in Nelson.  The citizens of Nelson had every  facility for securing the election returns last night. Wires were run  into the Liberal committee rooms,  the opera house and the Oflico and  Athabasca saloons. At the Liberal  headquarters the building was filled  with enthusiastic Grits and every  message turned off the ticker was  awaited with the keenest attention.  The system of tabulating the returns was perfect and the secretaries posted the checks opposite  the victorious candidate's name as  rapidly as the results of the voting  was announced. The government  supporters returned were ticketed  with the word "elected" in red  letters and the, opposition in blue.  The first returns came in soon after  5 o'clock and by 8 o'clock the red  checks so outnumbered the blues  that the condition of affairs was  apparent at a glance. Among the  very first returns to hand were  those detailing the defeat of  Hugh John Macdonald and  sir Charles Tupper. These  announcements started tho jubilation in the Grit camp whicli kept  up for several hours. At the Athabasca saloon the side of tho sitting  room was plastered with sheets and  an instrument in tho manager's  oflico kept the yellow sheets llow-  iug in. The crowd, being divided  in sentiment, was not as enthusiastic as at the Liberal rooms but lots  of good Grits heard the news there,  and many foaming beakers were>  downed in honor of the -victory.-  At the opera house bulletins were I  read between acts, but the .major-*  ity of those- present had -learned?!  the facts earlier in the eveningly  Generally   speaking   it. maybej  said that the Liberal   victory lw as  conceded,   but   comparitiyely few [  Liberals   even   thought   the   government   majority   would : be   in*-1  creased as the results  would   seem I  to indicate.   The defeat   of   Hugh|  John Macdonald and "sir   Charlesl  Tupper was somewhat of a surprise,  while the Liberals were not by any  means sure of hon. A. G. Blair win? I  ning in St. John.  Croker Surprised.  Nrcw Yonic, November 7.���Richard   Croker   said today:     "I was|  very much surprised   and   disappointed   at the way the election I  turned   out.      I   did   expect   Mr.  Bryan to be elected president of thel  United   States."     Asked   for   thel  cause of defeat, he replied:   "I believe that 10 to 1 had a lot to dol  with the vote against Bryan in thiej  state.     What  the causes  were ii  the southern' and Eastern states  do not know.    I  do not regard the  decision of the country as adverse  to   Mr. Bryan as  a man;   it was|  against his principles."  Hanna Pleat*ed.  Clrvkland, Ohio, November 7.  Senator Hanna did not reach hid  office   till after noon today.     He  found a perfect deluge.of congratu-1  latory telegrams piled on his desk!

The ultra Liberals  will wear smiles for a few days,--and  tluMiltra Conservatives will spend a  low weeks in explaining how it was  all done; but the great bulk,of the-  Canadian people will talce the re-'  suit as a matter of course.

PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Parly in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, tho delegates of tlie Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Caviboo  constituency, in convention, apsemblerl, reaffirm, tlie principles of the  party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to.home  industries, and'that that principle be-carried out so that all sections of  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we b,elieve that our mining industries are as-fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  and, lead products bo increased, so that they shall.be as high as those now  imposed by the United States on the same articles.  Thatthe output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing^  therefore we favor-the establishment of a mint, so'.that the specie in circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate-the restriction of -the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada,1 and suggest, the adoption of the /principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament - that ��� she is entitled to: - therefore ��� we : advocate that when the  redistribution of seats-is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  ���Macdonald has deckled to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

In Fern Lo, at least, the Chinamen  liiivenever come  into competition  villi the laboring class in any A"/ay,  *��\ liiM-eas tlio Slavs and   Dagos   are  c ���niiiutally   crowding   "true   born  J!i itish" out of what rightfully be-  1 Migs to them.    They are inferior in  ��'v��M-y way, but because   they   can  l��! driven around like dogs and are  s. I ways ready to accept whatever is  offered they are given  the  preference.    AVe do not say this   is   par-  t icularly the case in Fernie, but   it  i-j the case wherever foreign   labor  is employed   to   any   extent.    We  haveu't a word to say in   favor   of  the Chinamen, and as far as we are  concerned they are welcome to bury  each other wherever they like,  but  we deny that the Slavs and Dagos, ^  particularly the latter, come to this  - country with the intention of making it their home.    All their actions  go to   disprove   this.    How   many  Italians have we in Ferine who are  trying to make   homes   for   themselves here?   Not   one.    Scores   of  ihem have been here for over   two  years and have always earned good  wages, but what  have   they   done  with it?   They haven'tbuilthonses,  they    give   little   or   nothing    to  churches and   live   as   meanly   as  tliey know how,  every   cent   they  . are iible to   savo   going   to   Italy,  'where they eventually expect to go  themselves.   "Fair Play's"  sugges-  t ion that it goes to bring   more   of  tlie same class to this country may  be right, but if   one-half   or   ouo-  ������iiarter of the money sent   out   of  lhe country   by   these   foreigners  was used for this purpose   Canada  would long ago have been   overrun  with them.  We ��� never contended or even  ,liinted,that it would be better- for  ���Vaii- riay's" Slav friend.to squan-  iltsr his earnings in drink rathe*  than send it away. Anything is  butter than drunkeness, but it does  nut follow that if the- Slavs and  ! >agos do not spend their money in  (iiiuk they must send it out of the  ���������iiintry. Neither would any one  object to them sending sufficient to  keep a father or mother, as but a  small percentage of their earnings  iu this country would be required  for that purpose. AVhat wo object  t) is the fact that they, month  after month, send away every cent  t.Iiey can possibly spare aftei payday, and but very few of them contemplate making this country.their  home.

Further, we venture to  say that at least three-fifths of the  occupants of the provincial penitentiary at New Westminster are  foreigners.  To say that the Slavs and Dagos  compare favorably with the English, Scotch and Irish immigrants  who came to this country thirty or  forty years ago, is out of the question. The immigrant of today has  a hundred chances to one that the  immigrant of thirty years ago had.  There have been Italians in this  country for twenty years. What  have they done ?. How many have  made comfortable homes for themselves? We know of but very, very  few. Few of them stay more than  five or ten years. By that time  they have enough good Canadian  money stored up in their own country to last them as long as they live.  So far as honesty is concerned,  we cannot say, as we have person-  all# had but little dealings with  them, but will just add that since  coming to Fernie the only downright dead-beat that we have come  in contact.with was a Slav.  The Slavs do not belong to. the  same family as the German Men-  nonites. The: German Mennonites  are a well-to-do, thrifty class of  people, and those of them who have  come to this country left their  native land with the full intention  of making this country their home,  whieh is more than can be said of  the Slavs and Dagos.

R. to defraud  the employing company, the information concerning which had been  obtained from persons presumably  in a position to know the facts and  guarantee their accuracy. It is  now learned that these facts were  grossly exaggerated, the basic  foundation of the case being that  one conductor had been caught  "knocking down" as the term is���  and dismissed from the company's  employ. No agents or other officers  were found to be concerned.  Latest Up-to-Date Stock. Purchased Direct from the Manufacturers.  Hallowe'en.  The last night in October, long  and familiarly know as Hallowe'en,  was commonly called in England  "nut-crack night;" It is the eve of  All Hallows, or All Saints.  The principal idea respecting  Hallowe'en is that it is the time, of  all others when supernatural influences prevail. It is the night set  apart for the roaming abroad of  fairies and witches.  All over the United Kingdom,  there is a marked sameness in the  fireside customs of this night, nuts  and apples are everywhere sin ''de-';  mand, and immense.quantities ;are  consumed. Seemingly the name of  "nut-crack night" takes its origin  from the predominence of the  former iu making up the evening's  jollity. Not only are the nuts  cracked and eaten, but also'made  the source of prediction in love  affairs.  Some of the modern forms of celebrating this bewitching night are  very annoying. "Tick-tack" for instance���when one's nerves are set  tingling by a sudden tapping at the  window.  Large processions are formed,  headed by a bugler, whose strains  are otherwise than musical. These  processions move along the streets  carrying with' them gates, pickets,  corner posts, etc., and concealing  them in very out of way places. An  extra force of police is put on, but  they must be very alert to catch  the merry makers.  The older forms of Hallow'en  amusements seem preferable to the  more modern customs. Tlie latter  are often the source of much damage.^ ItJsjy_ery^amuslngyor_those,  who take part in the > pranks, but  not so for the property owner,  when in the morning he ..finds his  gate gone and his fences torn away.  Transient Trader Nuisance.  Hamilton (Ontario) Herald.  As a penalty for neglecting to  take out a transient traders' license,  the Globe Optical Company, which  has opened tip a store on King  street east to carry on a business in  spectacles and like goods, will have  to pay a fine of $50. So decreed  magistrate Jeffs this morning, after  sleeping over night on evidence  brought out yesterday. City solicitor MacKelcan and inspector Brick,  who have been working hard on  the case, v are very much pleased  with the verjiict. In giving his decision the magistrate said he believed it was the policy of the  municipal law" to make transient  traders of all who have not been  residents pt the city three months.  The fine did not leave a stain on  the defendant's reputation ; it was  only like paying a license fee, as  the bylaw, provided that it should  be applied on the taxes if the firm  remains permanently. If it still  neglects to get out a license, which  costs $100, he could fine it $50 for  every day business was done without one.  Smelter Plant on the Way.  Midway Advance..  ,T. P.

Harry Colverfc, who has been a,  part of the Spokane <fc Northern  and Nelson & Fort Sheppard rail-.  ways ever since they were built,  has decided to quit the roads. His  contract for carrying on -.the business of news agent has been transferred to C. If. Shaver & .Co. of  Chicago, and they take possession  at once.

The militiamen have  been instructed to parade at 4.  o'clock to meet the Moyie, which is  due at tho city wharf at 5 o'clock  but which may arrive at any time  after 4:30.

The nine miles of  road on Crawford creek built by  Dave McBeath, is almost finished.  A team can get up to the Silver  Hill mine how and within a few  days the crew will be taken .off.  The road cost.$10.000 or $12,000, of  which the government furnished  half. The grade is under i per  cent and Mr. McBeath has made a  first-class job of the road. The  Silver Mint road from New Denver  is also completed. It is two and a  half miles long and will tap a promising section of country. Half a  mile of road was built at Ainsworth  to connect the north road with the  Highland mine. This cost $000 and  will materially expedite the handling of supplies and ore to and from  the mine.* Sandon and Cody were  connected by a mile and a half of  road.  One of the most important undertakings of the year was the Upper  Duncan trail-;' fourteen miles in  length from Hall's Landing on. the  Duncan river to the west fork of  the river. In* this section there are  108 mineral locations, among these  being such well known properties  as the Baunockburn, Primrose, Lode  Star, Irene and Old Gold.
