Defended By
Tho Liberals of
force on Saturday
Hon. Sidney Fisher and Hewitt
Two Farmers.
Nelson  were out in
evening to "welcome
and listen to what they had to .say  upon
current political questions. Ib can readily
be imagined that a minister of agriculture would   find some   difficulty   in   interesting a Nelson audience with matters
pertaining  strictly to his  department in
the  government  of the  dominion.    For
this reason Mr. Fisher contented   himself
"with announcing tliat he was minister of
agriculture,  anil tluit  he  had made  the
trip across the continent for the  express
purpose of opening the agricultural show
at New' Westminster.     lie then entered
upon a defence of the general  poiicy  of
the government and kept   the  attention
of his audience for fully an   hour and   a
half.    He  commenced by  reminding his
hearers that tho Liberal  party had been
in power  lor the   last three  and a  half
years, after so*me  eighteen years of Conservative rule.    He   had    no   doubt  but
that many present would   remember  the
chief cry Avhich had been  raised  against
the  Liberal  party  prior to  and   during
the last dominion  campaign.    Tho members of the party were denounced as annexationists, who were disloyal to their
own country and to the  empire.     It was
then impressed upon the electors that  if
the Liberals got into office it would mean
destruction and ruin to all the  industries
of  the country.     It was stated that the
Liberal trade policy Avas. destructive  and
that the Liberal leaders were incapable
of carrying on  the   government  ofthe
The Loyalty of the Liberals.
When these accusations had been
made the speaker personally resented
them because he knew they were untrue,
but at tho present time it was only
necessary to refer to a few of the things
done by the Liberal party while in'office
to effectually show their falsity. Today
the British empire was at Avar, though
perhaps with a comparatively insignificant enemy, over .a matter of imperial policy which was important to the
whole empire. The"government of Canada felt that the people of the eutire dominion were interested in the fight about
to take place iu South Africa, and that
they wished to take a part in it. Consequently heaviis not surprised, as a member of the government, to read in the
morning papers thatthe -government at
OttaAva had decided to send a Canadian
contingent  to  South -Africa.    Although

toj^inpi^^iippiiv the people of the motheiy
the government Avith respect to the construction of the Pacific cable from
Canada to Australia, a cable Avhich should
be within the bounds of the empire and
entirely controlled by the British people.
Tlie negotiations toward this end had
been in progress many months but it Avas
only a few days ago that the cable commission decided to call for the completion
of the work. These things—the offer of
assistance in the Transvaal, the preferential treatment in the tariff, the action
taken A\'ith respect to imperial postage,
and the construction of the Pacific cable
—showed the falsity of the charge made
against the Liberal party of lack of
patriotism and disloyalty to the dominion
and the empire.
Prosperity Under Reform Tariff,
With   respect   to the Liberal party's
tariff reform tlie speaker  said  tliat Conservative criticism generally came  upon
one or two  general  lines.    It Avas either
said that the Liberal government had not
reformed  the  tariff at all, and that the
same old national policy AA'as still in force,
or that tlie tariff had been reformed too
much, and that tlie country  Avas  suffering therefrom.     The speaker's vei'sion of
the  reform   was*  that   finance minister
Fielding's tariff reform reduced the duties
upon  a  large  number of articles, it did
aAvay with all duties upon certain articles,
and on top of this admitted  a preference
of  25 per  cent upou all goods imported
from Great Britain.    It  was  a  measure
which reduced by 10 per cent the amount
of duties .which the people of the dominion
Avere   called   upon   to   pay    under   the
iioav tariff.    In consequence of the reductions made iii the tariff it Avas--computed
that during the  first  year  of the  operation   of the  reform   tariff there  Avere
.$2,750,000 less paid iuto  the federal exchequer   than   there  Avould  have   been
upon the same imports had the  Conser-
vatiA'e tariff been  retained.    The  Avorking of the new tariff was not disastrous.
The industries of Canada during the last
year AA'ere prosperous  in  a  manner entirely unprecedented in the history of the
dominion.'   The customs returns .showed
what  effect   the  neAV tariff   had   upon
Captain Hodgins and Fifteen of His Men Volunteer.
"lawdTBhe pai^otisni of Canada than anything else that had happened. Coming
lis it did iij";tl_e jubilee year, it 'Struck a
keynote AA'hich tlie people in Great
Britain will not soon forget. It _wits
since then his duty to pay a visit to England, and he found that the people 'We're
eager to learli about Canada^ and to give
her food products a trial. Wheti he had
been in England years before tliere .had
been a sale for Canadian products, but
the goods were' in variably' sold as Aineri-
eaii or British. 'There was absolutely no
gavle then for Canadian goodsas Canadian
goods4. All'"tliis has been changed, .and
while the speaker Avas in England hist lie
was assured that the best AVay now to
secure the sale of Canadian goods was to
.stamp them as Canadian. This the minister contended -was one of the practical
returns wliich Canada had received from
Britain foifthe preferential clause iu the
tariff; '•'      ■• '.-*'■
;;' Imperial Penny Postage.
Another great advance Avas made when,
postmaster-general Mulock introduced
his scheme for imperial penny postage.
When the Laurier goA'ernnient passed
the prder-m-couneil by AA'hich the postage
upon letters from Canada to the mother
land should be tAAro cents instead of- five,
the imperial authorities asked that action
be suspended until a scheme foi- imperial
penny postage could be carried out
throughout the entire empire. The result was the conference in England at
Avhich postmaster-general Mulock AA'as
present, and it A\Tas upon his motion that
the postage should be reduced to two
cents. As the result of the initiative of
the   postmaster-general   of Canada the
.public had a two-cent postage rate in the
dominion and imperial penny postage
with ali points iii the empire. Another
progressive   measure Avas the action  of

Heavy Expenditures Justified.
The speaker then, proceed to justify
tlie expenditure of $41,000^000. He expressed the opinioji that the governliieiit
Would have beeli recreant to its duty, if
while the country AVas prosperous and
the moyey avjis easy to secure, it did not
undertake those AVorks which it knew
Avould tend to the development of the
country. The expenditures in the Yukoil
furnished a ease in point. Lai-ge sums, of
money Avere spent in the development of
the Yukon, but the government had re-
ceiA^ed back from the Yukon every cent
and more than Avas expended. It Avas the
same with other expenditures, and the
net result for the year Avas a surplus of
$5,000,000 instead of a deficit of $4,000,000.
It A\ras the same with respect to the large
expenditures made to bring the Intercolonial raihvay into Montreal. It had
entailed a heavy expenditure, but the result had been that the raihvay shoAved a
surplus of revenue over Avorking expenses
of about $60,000, something unprecedented in its history. The charges made
in connection Avith the Drummond County
raihvay deal Avere then touched upon,
the speaker commenting upou: the circumstance that Avhile the Tory press made
all sort of charges against ministers Blair
and Tarte, the leaders of.-the Conseiwative
party-in the House disavowed all charges,

The AArar which" Great Britain is now
Avaging in the Transvaal was given a
greater local interest yestei-day afternoon Avhen captain Arthur E. Hodgins,
commanding the local company of
Kootenay rifles, received a telegram
from lieutenant-colonel Peters of Victoria, district officer commanding,
authorizing him to pi'oceed at once Avith
the l'ccruiting of volunteers in Nelson for
service in the TrausA'aal.
The local company of Kootenay rifles
paraded for church sei-A-ice yesterday,
and Avhen the company had returned to
the armory, captain Hodgins being apprised of the Ottawa government's intention of sending a Canadian contingent
of one thousand men, asked all who AArere
prepared to volunteer for service to fall
out. The response made to the call Avas
highly creditable to the company, as fully
half of the men at parade dropped out.
Captain Hodgins then put the volunteers
under 2nd lieutenant George S. Beer and
instructed him to take them to the hotel
Phair and acquaint Hon. .Sidney Fisher,
minister of agriculture, Avith the fact
that they had volunteered for service in
the Transvaal.
When apprised of the fact that so
many"men in the company had volunteered for service, the visiting minister
thanked them and said it Avas highly
gratifying to see such prompt response
to the call. He then complimented the
men upon their soldiery appearance at
the church parade, and remarked as the
Nelson company had been but lately organized it Avas evident that the members
had giveu a great deal .of.'attention .'to'
their drill. With respect to their action",

Late in the afternoon captain Hodgins
received a Avire from lieutenant-colonel
Peters, D. O. C, at Victoria authorizing
him to proceed with the'recruiting of
volunteers for service. In cthis telegram
the district officer commanding stated
that those volunteering Avould seiwe
under the Army Act, that their enlistment AA-ould be for six months Avith a
liability of having the same extended for
one year. The men Avill be paid according to the military regulations of the
permanent corps until their arrival in
South Africa, when the pay Avill be ac-
eording to the scale in the British regular service. The minimum height of
A'olunteers is fixed at 5 feet 0 inches and
chest measurement at thirty-four inches.
Volunteei-s must also be not less than 22
nor more than 40 years of age. Applicants for service must pass a rigid physical examination and secure a necessary
Up to 8 o'clock last evening sixteen
officers and men of the local company of
rifles had volunteered. The list contains
the following names: Captain A. E.

London', October 14.— The capture-of
the trains on the western border of the
Transvaal is the beginning of the few
anticipated revei*ses at the outset of the
campaign. The Boer plan is now unfolding itself. It seems to be to strike
simultaneously at different points Avith a
view of obtaining strong sti*ategie positions in Natal before the arrival of British i-einforcements. At all jDoints the
Bi'itish are faced by Boer forces superior
at least in number. The most dangerous
positions, especially since the loss of the
armored train's, are between Mafeking
and Vryburg.

beie Avar during whieli a daring exploit

he fought his AAray through the Matabeles,
rescued the beleagured party and escorted them to Salisbury.
Colonel Baden Powell, avIio is in com-
inand at Metehing, is a man of the greatest courage and energy, but he has only
2000 men, aud many of them are irregulars Avhose fighting capacity is not
known. The fact that he moved out of
Mefeking indicates some apprehension,
and in all likelihood he Avill have to stand
a fierce assault or a profound siege.
General sir George SteAA'art White,
commanding in Natal, is estimated to
have about 15,000 men stretched in
strongly entrenched positions from Ladysmith to Dundee. He is a man of greatc

Not Disposed to Work on Sunday.
Settled by Decree.
There has been more or less litigation
over, the surface rights of all the land in-
eluded within the boundaries of the City
of Rossland, Avith the exception of the
100 acres preempted by Ross Tlrompson.
In 1803 Charles Dundee preempted 320
acres adjoining the Thompson preemption. At the time of making the recoi'd,
Dundee AA'as not aAvai-e that the goA'ern-
nient had reserved land from preemption
.and sale under section 2 of "An Act to
authorize the granting of a certain land
subsidy for and in aid of the Nelson and
Fort Sheppard Railway." The land
covered by the i-eserve included all the
land in the neighborhood of Rossland.
Dundee's original record aviis cancelled
and another one^ AA'as  giAren him for 100
acres ;  this  in turn Avas cancelled, and a
third receipt  Avas  issued  to  him by the
government agent for this district.     The
Nelson and Fort Sheppard Raihvay Company received a crown grant for its lands,
under   the   tei-ms   of  the  subsidy,  and
Dundee  obtained   permission   from  the
present goA^ernment to bring suit.     Once
this    permission    AA'as    obtained,   a   lis
pendens was filed,'which clouded the rail-
AA'tiy company's title,  so that the sale of
the land  AA'as almost impossible.    Word
has  reached  Nelson  that the litigation
litis beeu dropped by agi*eement, and that
the supreme court had decreed thatthe
title of  the  railway  company is: good.
Title to all the  land  at Rossland is now/
practically  settled,  as it  is  understood
the  railway company has compromised
Avith the owners  of mineral claims aa'Iio
claimed  surface rights.    This '■'will  be a
good thing for Rossland, foi- the average v
hiA'estor does not care,, to- purchase a lot -
to Avhich  a  good ti tie o cannot be given,
and  few  care  to  erect  substantial   improvements on land the title of Avhich is
in dispute. ,. yy

tlie late has remained unchanged since
the law has been in force. If the contention of tlie mine managers for a cut in
wages is based on good grounds, the
mines that were paying $3 a day before
the law became effective should now be
paying $2.57, instead of $3. The rate of
wages in the Slocan had been $3. .50 a day,
and the miners' unions insisted that that
rate should continue to be paid. The
mines in the Nelson district that paid
$3.50 a day before the law became effective ju'e either paying $3.50 a day now or
working non-union men. The unions
have been consistent in their demands,
but as much cannot be said for the Jiiine
managers and .their newspaper mouthpieces. ■ ' *'
Managkr Saxdtford of the Bosun
jnine at New Denver attempts to answer'
the statements made iu the New Denver
- Ledge as to the number of men employed
in the Slocan, but he does uot do ib over
his own signature. lie lias a hired man
in liis office, named Thompson, who allows
his name to be used. Thompson was
recently kicked out of the government
office at New Denver for offensive partis-'
anship, and he i.s only too willing to-hurt
L the business of the district that helped to
overthrow liis former masters.

He was ji soldier of  equal promise, bravery, and integrity.  He was accused and convicted of the  same offence on documents forged by a  member of an equally corrupt general  staff, was imprisoned for the same period,,  and his l'clease was ultimately due to the  unflagging devotion of his wife, who bore  the sjtme chiistain name.

(LVnllnii.'.l I'mm First 1'uj:p'.'  although they expressed the opinion that  tho  government had  made a very bad  bargain.    The speaker also defended minister    Sifton's    administration    in    the  Yukon.    He said tliat the administration  of the  Yukon ..was  unexampled  in  the  history of   any niining country  in  the  world when all  things  were  taken  into  account.    Tho charges made against minister Si fton by sir Charles Hibbert Tupper  had   fallen   so   flat   that   Tupper,    the  youngoi*, refused to remain in the capital  to   press   them.     Thei*e had  also  been  charges levelled against major Walsh, on  account of the Yukon administration, but  it was also significant that while charges  were   made  in  the  house  of   commons_  touching the personal character of major  Walsh, the  Conseiwatives  making them,  oiie and all, declined to have anything to  say   upon   them   Avhen  campaigning in  the bye-election in Brockville, which was  the  home  of major Walsh.      This the  speaker" said  showed  coward ice  ou the  part of the Conservative leaders, since if  they insisted upon discussing the personal  chai-acter of major Walsh in the house of  commons   they  should  in   justice  htive  given liis friends a chance of defendiug,  him by  repeating  tlieir  charges  in  the  bye-election, which took place about the  same time,   in   the   maligned:   official's  home. ��� ���  Defence of the Railway Policy.  Minister Fisher then proceeded to de-  feud the general railway policy of the  government,* including the deal made  with Mackenzie & Mann for a railway  into the Yukon.

The arrangement made by the government with the  Canadian Pat i fie Rail way Company f or  the building of the Ci'oav's Nest railway  was-.also.:touched npon, the speaker enlarging upon the advantage Avhich the  operation of the road: has had and Avould  continue. to have to the mining and  smelting industry of Kootenay, among  which he, cited a reduction in.the cost of  smelting coke from $11 to $7 por ton.  No Increased Representation for Kootenay.  The speaker then took up the claim of  the Kootenays for individual representation in the house of commons. He admitted tliat. the development Avhich had  taken place in Avhat was known as the  district of Yale-Cariboo Avas such as  should Avai'i-ant its having three representatives instead of one. He'-regretted,  however, for the present it was impossible  to securo that larger representation  Avhicli the district deserved. No change  could be expected until tho taking of the  next census, Avhich Avould not occur until  1!)01. When this occurred he Avas confident that this province Avould be entitled to ten-representatives instead of  six. This he knew AA'ould be disappointing to many;, but until, after the next  general election the peojile of .Yale-  Cariboo'would have to be content Avith  one member  It Avas about 10 o'clock when the minister   of   agriculture   concluded  his   remarks   and during  the  entire  time  occupied by him he received close attention  ��� aud frequent rounds of applause.  As the hour Avas late the remarks of  ���Hewett Bostock Avere necessarily brief.  He added something to Avhat the previous  speaker had said Avith respect to the advantages which Avould result to the  .'dominion through the arrangement made  with the Canadian Pacific railway for  the building of the CroAv's Nest branch.  The chief of those he considered the  measure of control 'which the govern-:  ���nieht retained OArer the road. This he  considered was of more lasting benefit to  FULL LINE OF  Front. Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  . -.     .        *���- , ���  Windows  the  people who use  railways than any  measure  of -railway   conpetition   Avhich  not infrequently Avas folloAved bjr a pooling  of  interests  by the competing rail-  Avays and the disappearance' of all practical advantages of competition.    Mr. Bostock then  spoke  of the question of the  payment  of bounties  upon  galena and  gold ores smelted in Canada, saying that  the  matter  had  now been satisfactory  settled.    He added that although he had  said nothing upon the floor of the house  upon  the question, ho could claim some  credit for having interviewed the ministers upon tho question Avithin  avIioso departments it came.    He was glad  to  say  that the matter Avas now settled and that  the smelters were receiving tho bounties  to wliich tliey were entitled.    He also referred briefly to the concession which the  government     had     madii    to   Canadian  smelters  in  allowing  lead   refined from  Canadian-made   bullion    to    eiitor    the  dominion free of duty.   The action of the  government in passing  a  Arote for public  buildings  in  Nelson  and  Rossland  was  also commented upon, the speaker saying  tluit it Avas.regarded.at Ottawa as rather  unusual for a member to get  more thitn  one vote for such a  purpose during tiny  single session of the house  of commons.  Upon the question of increasing the head  tax    upon   Chinese    comiiig   into    the  ������province,Mr. Bostock said that difficulties  had been encountered,but that he thought  i the chances Ave re good at the next session  ifor haying the tax increased to $250 per  head.  The meeting closed AArith the passing of  a resolution' expressing approval of the  course of the British government with  respect to the Transvaal difficulty.

Yet so  great has been the demand for these goods, we have  found it necessary to wire for another car, which will  reach Nelson this week. We would ask the citizens  of Nelson to continue in showing their appreciation of  our efforts to give them the opportunity of enjoying  the luxurious furnishings of an eastern home in the  midst of the Rockies.  i(S)  ilS)  D.
