 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDIT ION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  5 ;.-vl  -      -    <���    "i  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  SATUKDAY MORNTNG NOVEMBER 17 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  IN THE WOODBURY CREEK SECTION  A   Mineral   District   Which   Will   Be   Heard   From���  Several  Properties  Working.  ONE SHIPMENT UNDER THREE TONS WHICH NETTED $2500  Increased activity in mining  ri rules about Ainsworth has drawn  (intention to the section drained by  Woodbury creek and it seems likely  I hat this country will participate  in the general prosperity predicted  for next year by mining men who  claim to be in a position to feel the  pulse of the industry. The fact  that there are several properties on  a shipping basis in the Woodbury  creek section will probably bring  it well to the front if the expected  boom arrives. As is well known  Woodbury creek empties into Kootonay lake three miles above Ainsworth. It runs back into the hills  /or eight miles and divides, one  fork running from the height of  land behind Kaslo and the other  II raining the country north of  Kokanee divide, where Coffee creek  - also- rises,- As it .approaches- the  lake Woodbury creek assumes respectable proportions and furnishes  what is said to be one of the finest  water-powers for mining purposes  Sn the country. Up to about the  point where the creek forks the  formation is lime carrying  (j-aleaa, and beyond this the line  merges into granite carrying  galena and gold ranging -from $15  - to $25. The veins are true fissures  and a fair average width for the  entire section would be about live  feet. The country is comparatively  ���iew, the pioneer prospectors, among  whom wore Tom Doyle, Daii Grant  iind D. McGrath, having staked the  first claims loss than five years ago.  Since.then there have been many  prospectors  through- -the-district,  ,-and upwards of 300 locations are  ' recorded. The biggest individual  -holder of properties is the King  Solomon's Mines Syndicate which  controls forty claims extending for  vsix** miles up stream from the  mouthy The* outfit hails from Minneapolis and have spent a large  amount of money on their various  properties, a _ concentrator being  one of the improvements. They  are not as yet extensive shippers,  but if tho country is as good as is  maintained a company owning  thousands of acres of mineral land  .should have several mines at least  out of the scores of prospects. One  <bhing the syndicate is sure of  ���and that is a magnificent Avater  power.  Further up stream is the Pontiac  and Tecumseh property which is  .regarded as one of the best prop-  ^rties"in"tlre"��ectioTir^It~was"located"  hy Taylor' and Alexander three  years ago and first bonded to Frank  Heap of Ainsworth, who transferred his bond to an English  syndicate represented by Scowden  of Kaslo at .$40,000. The syndicate  is said to have spent $25,000 in  biilding trails and cabins and then  stopped 'work. Heap continued  operations aud shipped five or six  cars of clean ore from the property.  A year ago the claims were bonded  to Caldwell of Kaslo who has since  had men at work. The parties who  have seen the workings confidently  predict that the Pontiac and  Te-jumseh will undoubtedly be a  mine.  A little lower down ia tho Grant  tmd General claims, owned by Dan  Grant   aud   Charles   Rossiter, the  . latter being the locator of the  Montezuma property at Kaslo. The  ���Grant..-and General made a name  for itself through a trial shipment  made the first year after it was  staked. The shipment was only 2��  tons, but it netted the owners $2500,  which record will be hard to surpass in the Kootenays. It is understood that the property is now  under bond to William Shore of  Ainsworth, who owns the No. 1  mine, and that a quantity of ore  will be shipped this winter.  On the right hand side of the  creek, opposite the Grant, is the  Bright Hope' group, owned by  ���Of rant and Underwood. This is a  dry ore proposition, claimed to run  close to 200 ounces in silver. Considerable work has been done on  .the claims, including . 230 feet of  -tunnelling on the veins and surface  work at various points.   It is prac  tically developed to a producing  basis and could bo a shipper on  short notice.  Promising extensions of the Pontiac and Tecumseh are owned by  Tom Doyle, who has done $2000  wor tli of =work on his group.  Assays from the claims run $15 to  $25 in gold and 150 ounces in silver. Further up both forks are  numerous claims more or less  developed. Should there be an influx of capital into the camp next  spring it is probable that the list of  working properties will be added  to materially.  Across the Lake  Across the lake from the mouth  of Woodbury creek is a group of  properties around which considerable interest centers. Tarn o' Shan-  ter creek enters the lake at this  point, and the properties are  located in "the vicinity of the  stream. First and foremost is the  Blue-Bell, once-an extensive shipper. . When the Pilot Bay smelter was in operation the  Blue Bell shipped 200 tons  of high grade ore daily but not a  single hammer has been lifted on  the property since the summer of  1800. It seems to be a moot point  as to whether or not the .mine is  exhausted. Those who argue in  the negative claim that the management gutted the mine and,  never spent any reasonable amount-  to prospect for other ore bodies  and advance expert opinions to the  effect that the Blue Bell is not exhausted. Doubtless the point will  be solved in a practical' manner  some day.  In the immediate vicinity is the  Lakcview    group,    including; the  Jennie,   Plaoback',   Thistle,   Rose,  Lakeview and Cedar claims, owned  by Patrick O'Brien,. a well known  prospector, who has  extensive interests in other camps.   The Lake-  view will probably be a mine in  the near future, as the development  to date shows the property up well.  Three   thousand dollars  has been  spent in work principally -on the  Jennie and Playback claims.  There  are no less than seven veins on the  group, averaging five feet in width  and carrying  30 to -10 ounces of  silver, 00 per cent lead and $3 to .$6  in gold iu the paystreak.     On the  Lakeview claim there  is  a  tunnel  showing four feet of concentrating  ore and six inches of   galena.   To  the north   is   the Tarn  O'Shanter  group owned by a Montreal company.    There is 1000 feet of tunnel  *onthe groupand���a~fi ve���foot*"vein"  with a   paystreak of   18    inches,  carrying 140 ounces of   silver and  $5 to $10 in gold, the balance of  the    ledge    being     concentrating  matter.   '__________���'  WRITTEN   BY   LABORERS.  The Triih'ne has placed a part of one column  ot the disposal of the Independent Laborers,  whoso views will be expressci therein from  time to time during the campaign. Alikoprl  vilege Is accorded the Conservatives and tho  Liberals.   It was not surprising for the  workers of Nelson to read yesterday morning that Foley's tour had  been a failure, and that some of his.  prominent supporters had been  uttering deliberate falsehoods.  Of course, as these remarks emanated from the Liberal scribe, who  appears to bo so excessively jubilant over the prospects of his candidate, they are merely considered  to be the usual party electioneering  tactics which .are not worthy of  any serious consideration.  We can assure our worthy opponents that we believe we are engaged in a struggle to obtain what  we have a perfect right to demand,  and which we shall get without  descending to vilify and- abuse  those who think differently.  What has become of all the effusive expressions of friendship  and sympathy for the labor cause  that have been so fulsoniely and  constantly expressed by the Liberal  leaders and their followers. Surely  the great working majority they  will have in the house ought to  satisfy the most exacting of the  partisans of the government. How  can they act so traitorously to  their, previous utterances and begrudge   the   one   little favor that  .the workers are anxious to obtain.  They are now gleefully anticipating the withdrawal of the Conservative candidate in Yale-Cariboo  and are striving by detestable political shuffles to cast a slur upon  the workers of the Labor party.  The intelligent, brainy men who  are advocating and upholding the  cause of the workers, have not the  slightest wish to undervalue their  opponents, but they are perfectly  certain of their own strength, and  can conscientiously refer the justice of their claim to the consideration of all fair and honest men.  They do not indulge in any foolish fancies of being able to dictate  their terms to the members of the  house, but they firmly believe in  their right of representation and  are determined' to have .a responsible *man in the legislature who  will safeguard their interest and be  in a position to advocate their cause.  They have no wish to disturb the  balance of power and have no desire to accumulate fortunes beyond  what they can obtain by their own  honest labor'. Jobbery and corruption fortunately are not within the  sphere of their simple requirements, these political aspirations  are unknown to their temperate  desires, they merely wish to have  their' own mouthpiece' to express  their rightful wants.  MAY SELLA ZINC PROPERTY  -   On Kokanee Creek. '  If at any remote period the value  of gold, silver or lead should fall  below the figure at which these  metals can be profitably produced,  the mineral possibilities of this district would not be exhausted, for  within ten miles of Nelson is one of  the very few zinc propositions in  the Dominion. -Many of the ores  in the Nelson and Slocan' districts.  carry a small percentage of- zinc,  but in conjunction with silver oi  lead this is regarded as a drawback  because the intractable nature of  zinc has led to the imposition of a  fine by smeltex*s jwhere the percentage of zinc exceeds a certain  limit, and up to the present time  there has been no demand for  straight zinc properties.  The claims referred to are the  Queen and Iron Duke, owned by  A. S. Gray of Gray's Landing and  captain D. C. McMorris of the  steamer Moyie, and the - Nelson  View and Iron Cap owned by R.  MeLeod and others.' All four  claims are located a mile up Kokanee creek, and about $2000 has  been spent in development. The  ledge js very wideband contains  four feet of solid zinc with some  gold. Some specimens have averaged 00 per cent of zinc, while an  average for the whole pay chute is  42 per cent. The owners are now  in communication, through George  McFarland of Nelson, with the Empire Zinc Company of Japlin, Mis-  -souri-rbne~of the- biggesfAmerican  zinc concerns, and a deal may eventuate. Samples of the ore have  been forwarded and it is j-robable  that an expert will be sent to examine the claims.  A New Electric Road. -  St. Joseph, Missouri, November  10.���Eastern capitalists, headed by  J. P. Gibson of Philadelphia, are  said to have completed a deal for  the construction of an electric rail-,  way between Kansas City and St.  Joseph on the east side of the Missouri river. The trains are to run  every two hours, night and day, at  half the present railway charges.  Train Robber's Skeleton.  Phoenix, Arizona, November  15.���Between Casa Grande and  Florence a-party of. hunters found  a skeleton which is ' believed to be  the remains of Burt Alvord, a member of one of the most desperate  bands of train robbers that ever  operated iu Arizona. There is  scarcely any doubt that he was  killed by William Stiles,, one of the  members of the gang. Wild animals  had torn all the flesh from the  skeleton, but peculiar marks on the  skull and fillings in the teeth made  identification sure.  JOHN M'KANE IS THE MAN  SELECTED  TO  MAKE  THE RACE  IN YALE-CARIBOO.  On Behalf of the Liberal-Conservative  Party and He Wil) Be Nominated on -Monday.  Rossland, November 16.���A. II.  MaeNeill has withdrawn from the  contest for a seat in' the Dominion  parliament from Yale-Cariboo district and will be succc--*ded by John  McKane.   Mr.' MacNfe: 11 says that  he is unable at this-. time to give  that 'time to the. conduct of the  campaign which it's importance demands.    Since he was "nominated  certain matters.have arisen in connection with his legal practice that  requires his attention to such an  extent as to make it '.impossible for  him to visit the different parts of  the district that he desired to.    He  says that the executive of the party  in the district. has selected John  McKane of   Rossland ���" to' -take his  place on the ticket;-.   Mr. MaeNeill  speaks favorably of Mr. McKane,  saying of him :    "T have known Mr.  McKane for more than 15 years,  and feel that he is well qualified in  every   respect   to  be. your   representative.    From,  his   connection  with   the mining industry,   he is  particularly well fitted to represent  this riding and to call attention "to.  its many needs.- -J"hope the friends'  who have so loyally supported me  in this cause   will give the same  support to Mr McKane, and I can  assure them, they, will never have  cause to regret it." "3 ^  WRITTEN BY  LIBERALS.  is simply intolerable. That F.  August Heinze, an American Democrat, whose party is hostile to  Britain and the supremacy of the  British flag, should dictate to the  free and independent electors of  Yale-Cariboo through his organ,  the Rossland Miner, is surely re-  pulsivo to every patriotic sentiment  of a true Britisher.  Which shall it be?  Shall our actions be truly British  or shall they be inspired from  Butte?���Greenwood Times.  THEY BUBNED HIM AT THE STAKE:  Terrible  Vengeance of a Colorado  Mob  on a Negro  Ravisher and  Murderer.  W. A. Galliher's campaign along  the main line of the C. P. R. is  proving successful beyond the most  -���anguine expectations. His meetings are crowded and enthusiastic,  while at every turn he is making  .fresh friends from the ranks of his  opponents. He has quite obliterated Mr. Foley's trail in the north  of the constituency, and will get a  substantial majority at every polling place from Golden to Agassiz.  POURED KEROSENE OIL ON THE FUEL THAT WAS USED'  Want to Play the Winner.

Alike privilege is accorded  the Tubor party and tlie Conservative!*.  No More Plague at Glasgow.  Washington,   November    15.���  Surgeon-general Wyman    of    the  marine hospital service this morn-^riiVe interests of Chris Foley of the  ing received the following tjelfior^m    Western    Federation    of   Miners.  '' In the year of grace 1000, British  arms were forced to maintain the  prestige of the British ilag in South  Africa. Canada, showing her love  for the mother country, sent her  best sons to fight for the queen and  empire. The war was a righteous  war, but it was a war which aroused  the jealousy and hate of "other  nations. In the United States the  Democratic party were strong in  their denunciation of the British  and equally strong in their sympathy for the Boers. The Boers  maintained a hopeless struggle, encouraged by the belief that the  success of the Democratic party  would mean intervention.' They  believed that the placing of a  Democratic president in the White  House would mean the assistance of  the American nation in tearing  down the British flag from where it  was raised after much bloodshed.   Among the stalwarts of the  Democratic party is one W. A;  Clark, millionaire mine owner, of  Butte. Driven from the senate under charges of bribery and corruption, he endeavored with the aid of  Butte miners to secure the return  of a legislature and a governor  favorable to himseif. -. In his work  he was aided by one F. August  Heinze. This gentleman is not unknown to the people of British  Columbia. It was he who boasted  that he had flimflaramed the British Columbia legislature. He disposed of his valuable interests in  this province and returned to  Butto. Unable to get rid of the  Rossland Miner, lie still owns it and  uses it not for the purpose of promoting the interests bf a country  in which he has no longer much interest, but in promoting the political ambitions of - F. August Heinze.  Clark and Heinze-declared for ah  eight-hour day in Butto and in  their own properties men are working eight hours. This action was  acceptable to tho Western ^Federation of Miners and very properly  won for them the .support of the  working classes. But Mr. Heinze  went further. Chris Foley, an  executive officer of the Western  Federation of Miners, was a candidate for the Dominion parliament  in Yale-Cariboo district. Mr. Heinze  directed that his property, the Ross-  ]�����'(! Miner, should be exploited in  from surgeon Thorna-**-*.���*"*... !L.ogbw"  "Glasgow, November 15.���Wy-  man, Washington : This port declared free from the plague November 14th."  Day after day the Miner is doing  its utmost to secure Mr. Foley's  election.

After he was shot  Smith fired four times at the burg-  lav, who however escaped. Smith's  wound will not prove fatal. The  burglar secured uo treasure.  Denver, Colorado, November 10.  ���The   train   bearing   the   negro,  John Porter, who recently confessed  to the assault and murder of 11-  year-old Louise Frost, in custody of  sheriff Freeman and his deputies  from Denver, arrived in  Li mon 'at  3:45 p.m.   The cars were crowded  with    newspaper    reporters    and  people who were curious to see the  negro executed.   R. W. Frost, the  murdered girl's father, was one of  the  passengers.     When the train  stopped   10   men   who   had   been  selected by the vigilance committee  entered   the train and demanded  the prisoner from the sheriff. Their  every act was marked by calmness  and   determination. -    The   officer  protested in the name of   the law  and asked-to take his prisoner to  the county jail at Hugo, but' his  protests were disregarded.  One man carried a rope in which  had been formed a hangman's  noose. This was slipped over the  negro's neck. It was at first announced that the negro was to be  executed by hanging.' Many, including -the father of the negro's  victim, protested that such a death  would be too easy*and it was finally  decided to leave the method of  death to the' outraged father. -. He  decided upon burning at the, stake.  The train was then allowed to proceed and at Lake Station, three  miles from Liirion, and near the  negro's crime, the whole party left  the train and began preparations  for the deed of vengeance. . Sugs,  gestions of mutilation before5^burn"  ing were made, but. Mi*, Frost" de'-7  elared; against it." * Wagons'were  despatched 'for" wood-' aricl\ifpon"  their return" a score of memassisted  in preparing it for the fire. 'When  at last preparations were completed a delay was had because ib  was known that many were en  route from Hugo.and other parts of  the country to take part in the  affair. It had been announced that  5:30 o'clock should be the hour for  starting the fire, but it was nearly  an hour later when the word was  finally given.  Lakr Station, Colorado, November 15.���John Porter, the young  negro who assaulted Louise Frost,  an 11-year-old girl, was today  burned at the stake. ' The crowd  that had gathered to witness the  execution of Porter had unanimously agreed that burning should  be his fate. The funeral pyre was  made ready and R. W. Frost,,the  father,-applied���the���torch.���While=  the arrangements were being made  the colored boy. stood near by  trembling with fear and holding a,  Bible in his hand. He was not mutilated in any manner. The negro  lad showed great fortitude until  the flumes began to scorch his flesh.  He then screamed pitequsly for a  few minutes, but death came  quickly to his relief.  Porter did not seem to realize the  awful punishment that he was  destined to undergo. As he had  exhibited indiffereneo to the enormity of his crime, so he seemed to  lack all understanding of its terrible consequences. For more than  an hour, while preparations for his  execution were in progress, he  stood mute and sullen among the  avengers. When everything was  ready he walked to the stake with  a firm step, pausing as he reached  the circle of broken boards to  kneel in prayer. He was allowed  to take his time. Ho arose and  placed his back to the iron stake  and half a dozen men wound chains  about his body and limbs. Kerosene oil was applied to tho wood,  and after a brief pause Richard W.  Frost, tho father of little Louise  Frost, whose cruelly mutilated  body was found one week ago on  that very spot, took his match safe  out, extracted a match, lit it and  touched the flames to the oil. Por  a moment but a little flickering  flame arose, then the oil blazed up,  sparks flew in tho air and the wood  began to crackle. Almost instantly  the negro's trousers caught fire.  Even though the flesh must have  been scorched, he did not utter a  sound.  The flames crept slowly upward  "^1  "SI  -tfj*1  on his clothes, the sparks flew up in \>%i  a crowd of. pale smoke. Porter; -\_i  turned his head and a frightful ex\} !/  pression changed his face.

I'-'&A  have something more to tell you.  Please let me go.'   Oh! my God, my , * M  God." ;    y m  In terrible screeches these w'ords,T  the first he had uttered, came from     j-%\  the negro.   The terrible tugging at'  the chains, a succession of awful  groans and screams showed that the ^   ,  negro's awful agony was at last S~ j,  breaking   down   his    sullen    com-  \_<-  posure.   Not an oath escaped-him,     %'.  but he begged and pleaded to' be     vi  shot.    Suddenly  the  rope ^ holding yvi  his hands burned through*.:  Then ''���-"-  the   arras,    head    and    shoulders   y  slipped through the chain-.- For an   * 'j  instant the ..body stood erect, the    ^_  arms were raised in   supplication-    ^'  while   burning pieces of  clothing ,-**-<,*-!  dropped   from them.,-   The   body    ~J  then fell  away from the fire,- the  head lower than the feet,_���which  were   still   fastened to -the 'post.

After tho fire burned low they told  each  other  good  night  and, went      ..  home.   They did not stop to dis-    ^7  cuss the affair.  ,*''l  CC'  Raiding Apaches.

The man who shouts his virtues  from the housetop is invariably an  B^objeet-of-suspicion.- = ���=-  The Nelson organ of the Bonnington Falls Power Company  gang, the head pushes of the nickel-  in-the-slot saloon gambling element  and the sanctified church oloment  have, it is said, combined forces to  carry the next city election. They  will bo as effectually defeated in  January as they were last January.  Thr Nelson  organ  of the Bonnington Falls Power Company says  that Nelson  "must cease to be a  " town in tho woods." Many people  .   are of the opinion that Nelson is a  :   right smart town, even if the Jlou-  ;   ningtou Falls Power Company does  ;   not see fit to have its head office in  the town, ^   While there was a possibility of  A.  If. MaeNeill  remaining  in  tho  field, the Nelson Miner belabored  him with fulsome flattery.     Now  that it is rumored that he has resigned, that   organ   of  universal  contempt smashes its former idol  and cringes the pregnant hinges of  the knee in the  presence of Mr.  McKane  in the   hopo that thrift  may follow fawning.  Tins paper has never received one  dollar, directly or indirectly, and it  ���loe.s not expect to receive, directly  or indirectly, one dollar for any of  the articles that have appeared, or  may hereafter appear, under either  of the three heads:   "Wiibten by  THE.  DRINKING  qualities in the cup are the important features  to be considered in purchasing tea. The most  DELICIOUS  flavored tea obtainable is a pure Ceylon of  choicsst quality. This tea is put up in lead  packets, on the estates where it is grown.  It is known as  HONDI  CEYLON TEA       CEYLON TEA  Conservatives," "Written by Liberals," "Written by Laborers." All  the copy for these articles was furnished by tho secretaries of the: respective campaign committees,  namely, Fred Starkey, H. W. B.  Moore and W. It. Kee. This, of  course, will not bo admitted by the  organ of the Bonnington Falls  Power Company gang, a paper that  has never supported any man for  office or any cause without either  receiving or expecting pay. . At  present, no one outside of the gang  who are doing their best to gain an  entrance into the city for the Bonnington Falls Power Company,  uses The Miner for any" purpose,  hence the waitings of that discredited sheet. The people have  sized it up and pronounced their  verdict.   The Nelson organ of the Bonnington Falls Power Company  gang says the Conservatives of  Nelson are not satisfied with the  way the party campaign has been  managed in Nelson. True, none of  the funds contributed to carry on  the campaign have reached the  pockets of the gang interested in  that paper; and it is also true that  none of the funds contributed came  from the pockets of any' of that  gang.-         Still sighing for the fleshpots,  the Nelson Miner expresses a desire  to.have the Conservative campaign  committee changed, and with its  accustomed hypocrisy, announces  that this is the wish of John McKane. As a matter of fact, tho  Miner does not know what it is  talking about, and Mr. McKane is  not the man to choose as a repository of his confidence mugwumps  who have expressed a determination to vote for Mr. Galliher.  On Monday last A. II. MaeNeill  notified the executive of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-  Cariboo that he would be unable to  stand for nomination, and requested  the executive to take immediate  action. It was a difficult matter to  get the executive together, as one  member lived at Vernon, another  at Kamloops, another at Kaslo,  another at Rossland, and another  at Columbia. A meeting was called  for Jtevelstoke on Wednesday. Mr.  MaoNeiU's resignation has been  accepted, and the vacancy has been  filled. John McKane of Rossland  will make tho race. Mr. MaeNeill  could not, with justice to himself,  continues as a candidate, and tho  reasons he gave for withdrawing  were entirely satisfactory to tho  executive; and his friends in the  party are still his friends. John  McKane is a Scotchman born and  bred,'ami has all the good qualities  of that race, and none of the bad  ones. Ho lives in Rossland, and  has mining interests in Trail Creek,  Nelson, Goat River, Ainsworth,  Slocan and Lardeau mining  divisions. Personally, he is a jolly  good fellow; politically, he is a die-  in-the-las't-ditch Conservative. John  is in the fight to stay, and so are  his friends.   The Slocan Drill is an enthusiastic supporter of the candidate of  the Independent Labor party, so  enthusiastic that it makes misleading statements. It states that the  Liberal party nominated candidates   in   opposition   to the Inde- j  pendents in Toronto,. London, Winnipeg, Nauaimo. and   Vale-Cariboo.  The Tribune is not posted  as to  Toronto and London ; but in Winnipeg the   Iii bora 1   party   did not  make a nomination.     K. D. Martin,  who   happens to be  a  brother to  Joseph Martin e>f this province, ran  as   an   Independent   Liberal.     In  Nanaimo     a    convention   of   the  Liberal party was duly held, and  a man named Sloan was nominated,  who   afterwards   ran   as an independent Liberal.    Later on Ralph  Smith was brought out by the Independent   Labor party, and was  endorsed   by   the    Liberals   who  would not support Sloan.    In Yale-  Cariboo,   the   Liberals   held  their  convention at Revelstoke on September .-5th, and nominated W. A.  Galliher.   The Independent Labor  party   met in Nelson on   October  3rd, and ou the morning of October  5th   Christopher   Foley   was   announced as the   candidate of the  party.   To   the ordinary mind it  would appear that the Independent  Labor party nominated a candidate  in direct opposition to the Liberal  party   in    Yale-Cariboo,   and   in  -Nanaimo and Winnipeg no nominations were made.by the Liberals  as a party.   Why do. not the Independent Labor party newspapers,  some of which are edited by dyed-  in-the-wool    Conservatives,    come  out fairly and  squarely   and say  that the men who work for wages  have formed a political party, just  as other political parties have been  formed in the past, and. that there  is no desire or intention to affiliate  with the Liberals or the Conservatives, and that  they do not care  what action these parties take. The  Liberals and the Conservatives are  recognized   political*parties,   each'  having principles for which they  .contend.    The Independent Labor  party also has its principles.     If  they arc good, why not battle  for  them   on   their    merits,   and   not  ^whines   so much about   opposition-  from this or  that  man, or this or  that party.    Few  men  gain  what  they want without hard work and  up-hill fighting.     Political parties  are like men.  to  '00>'0*'  FRED   IRVINE .&  CO.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Dress Goods.

Thfti-o is no land frontier in  the  world so strikingly guarded as that  imaginary0 line    which    stretches  ii cross Asia from tlie Caucasus to  llio   Pacific, and marks  tho south-  (���.'isl'ern  boundary of tlie Russian  i-mpire.   Along this lino like a row  if their pawns in some huge  game  u? chess, are scattered  the frontier:  posts of the Cossacks���that famous  .irregular arm of the Russian military system.    One to every twenty,  'miles or so of the frontier these  posts   stand���in   all    some    three  tliousand^miles or more. ���  The conspicuous feature of each  outpost is a bluIT tower, built of  stone or of mud and logs. On this  is erected .i second tower of wooden  lattice-work with a kind of crow's  nest on the top. Beside this composite structure are the stables for  the Cossack ponies���the lower portion ot the double tower forms a  guardroom and dormitory. Up in  the crow's nest, by night" and by  day, watch a vigilant pair of Cos-  '..'. sack-eyes.'- At their owner's command is a semaphore for day signalling; at night lights are; employed. Just in sight, on either  hand, are the flanking outposts,  also with their lights by night and  their senmphore signals by day.  Silently they whisper to one  another across the Asiatic hills and  plains, sleepless, loyal���for God and  the czar.  Fifteen men there, are to oach  post, and each day three take the  duty of watching from the tower  top. Thus, one day "in five, each  man does eight c. hours' sentinel  duty���two hours up, four hours'  rest, then two. hours of watching  again, and so on till the day  is iinished, when three other  Cossacks Jake the ''shjf t'' for . the  next 24 hours. Once' a month the,,  posts are relieved from a district  depot or the nearest garrison. Including the Cossack element in the  latter centres, and the men actually on outpost duty, there cannot  be fewer than 45,000 Cossacks on  the Asiatic frontier. To these must  be added the 40,000 men of the  regular army who form the so-  called "frontier battalions." But  it is the blue-coated Cossack who,  along this vast and vulnerable  boundary, furnishes, in a truly literal sense, the eyes of the Russian  empire.  Tf this magnificent string of communication has a disadvantage, it  is that the Cossack wardens are'  not, in the real purport of the  phrase, trained signalmen. They  have merely been taught to interpret and report certain arbitrary  ^signals,,ycapable^  warnings and requests as are likely  to be necessary. The posts, how-  |j ever, act, in case of need, as a chain  of depots supplying dispatch riders  who have not their equal in the  whole world. A written message  can thus be carried in 20-tnile  stages with an almost incredible  ^speed. The Cossack dispatch rider  'iaf-strides one horse and; leads a  relay, both animals advancing at  the wildest gallop. By this means  a communication of vital importance could be hurled across Asia  inside a week.  There is a story on tlie frontier  of a crack Cossack rider, who on  one occasion was whirling through  Turkestan with a message marked  -������urgent" when a tiger sprung out  of the jungle and leapt upon the  neck of the horse he was riding.  The Cossack swung himself, as he  had done a thousand times before,  into the saddle, of the beast he was  taking .as relay, and without breaking gallop,.continued his headlong  e'ar'eer, leaving the tiger to its meal.

Liberal gains and  losses are irregular in Ontario. This  irregularity indicates that the people were not swayed by racial and  religious prejudices, which would  have operated with some approach  to uniformity; I.        '  Official Liberalism and its organs  do not stop to think that they are  embittering Quebec against Ontario by the absurd falsehood that  appeals to racial or religious prejudice worked the ruin of sir Wilfrid  Laurier in this province. The discredited Ontario ministers and  their organs are willing to embitter  the relations between Ontario and  Quebec, rather than stand condemned by the verdict which this  province recorded against them,,  not against Laurier as a French-  Canadian, liot against the compatriots of 'Laurier, but against the  forces which have made Ontario  Liberalism the cart-horse for  schemers and grabbers and subsidy  hunters. It has not been hard in  the last two years to find  men who really loved the  Liberal party, and had been driven  into indifference or hostility by the  smug hypocrisy of its organs, by  the intolerance of its bosses, aud  the character of the deals which  they justified. The heart and soul  had been burned out of Ontario  Liberalism by a growing appreciation of the truth that their leaders  were lacking in courage, and their  organs devoid of aggressive virtue.  In four short years sir Wilfrid  Laurier has developed into a most  odious party tyrant. . It may not^  be his fault, but it is Wilfrid  Laurier's misfortune that he gravitates naturally into association  with the worst elements of Liberalism in Ontario and the west. The  people are not always logical. There  is no reason why an Ontario Liberal  should vote against Laurier because  he resents the Ontario government's cynical indifference to public rights. There are hundreds of  Ontario Liberals who have simply  grown tired of breathing tho  atmosphere of dickers and deals  through which the party had to  inarch behind the Crow's Nest Pass  brigadiers, the authors of the  C. P. R., the Mackenzie-Mann transactions, the Yukon atrocity and  the emergency rations iniquity.  These Liberals did. tho work on  Wednesday.  SATURDAY, NOV. 17  at 2 o'clock.
