 e&  fm4to,  f A,tsfy&m7  *  -. >t  THE TKIDUNE  IS THK OLDEST NEWSPAPER  PRINTED  IX THE  KOOTENAYS  Saturday, September  26, 1903  NELSON  IS THE TRADE CENTER OF SOUTH-  EASTERN BRITISH   COLUMBIA  ^Public Meetings in Nelson Have Been  Well Attended, Were Evenly Divided, bat Were Not Fairly Reported.  Public meetings, it is said, do not change votes. The public  meeting iu Nelson Monday night was attended b}*- not less than  450 people, 300 of whom will vote in Nelson. Judging from  the applause, the sides were eventy divided. The applause at  no time was general, which goes to prove two things : (i) that  the crowd was partisan; (2) that neither of the speakers "could  touch the S3Mnpathetic spot that is in every human.  Hon. Charles Wilson, president of the council in the McBride  government, spoke on behalf of the Liberal-Conservative Party.  He presented the partj^'s case clearly, and made a speech that  was sensible and free from extravagant statements. He did not  revile the Liberal Party or any of its leaders, while comparing  its work with that of the Liberal-Conservatives. The thought-  .s ful elector who heard Mr. Wilson would place him not among  men who would evolve a great governmental policy, but among  nien who would be safe in council.  S. S. Taylor, the candidate of the Liberal Party for Nelson  Cit}' riding, is a speaker who shows his training. When he  speaks for a client in court, the speech is prepared beforehand  and its delivery is merely a matter of course. When he speaks  on a political platform, aud is.required to think as he speaks, he  is neither forceful nor eloquent. He has a flow of words, but  there is little meaning iu them. He is uot a reasoner, therefore  he is not convincing. The partisans of his party cheer him  much the same as. a hired claque do in a cheap theatre���because  it is a part of the play.    .  But it is with the reports of these public meetings that The  Tribune will deal.    No more untruthful and one-sided reports  were ever published of  public meetings than the reports that  have been published in the Nelson Dailyy News andf;tne  Rossland Miner. /Nelson ha^ha^  well attended. Both were very evenly divided. The first was  called by the Liberals, and the candidate of the Liberal-Con-  . ser-vative Party certainly got as much, or more, applause than  did his opponent. The second was called by the Liberal-Conservatives, at which the candidate of the part}*- did not speak.  His opponent did speak, and he got apparently as much applause  as did the gentleman who spoke for the Liberal-Conservatives.  Why newspapers dependent on the support of people who are  uot all of oue way of thinking should publish so outrageously  ' unfair reports of political meetings is ' beyond understanding,  unless it is because the men who publish the newspapers are so  foolish as to believe that their newspapers have influence ; that  their readers will belive anything, no matter how absurd, they  read.  rtas^safe to say the public meetings in Nelson have not  changed a voter; and it is equally safe to say that the reports of  the public meetings which have appeared iu the Nelson Daily  News and the Rossland Miner have uot influenced a single  voter who has read them.  Political Situation Reviewed.  The Tribune cacli week has reviewed  the progress oi' the campaign a.s fairly as  a newspaper can that has political bias.  It has not niisreportetl public meetings  and it has not belittled Liberals who aro  conducting their campaign on fair linos.  In Ymir riding, the candidate of tho Liberal party is, in the opinion of Tho Tribune, a blatherskite and a man wholly  lackiug in principle. He pretends to bo  a friend of Joseph Martin, yet he would  throw Martin without hesitation. Ho  pretends to be a Labor man, yet he spurned  a nomination from the Independent Labor  Party. One thing the people of the district will be well rid of after October 3rd,  that is, "Alf" Parr. In Nelson City riding, S. S. Taylor, K.C., the candidate of  the Liberal Party, has pandered like a  demagogue to one class, and the result is  that the electorate, who are not of that  class, have determined to let Mr. Taylor  stay at home. John Houston will defeat  him as sure as the sun will rise and sot  on election day. In Kaslo riding, Hon.  Eobert F. Green will have an easy victory over his two opponents. In Slocan  riding, where the labor men have acted  like men of principle, the light will be  close. In that riding the Labor men have  stuck to their platform, and their candidate is appealing to the electorate on the  principles enunciated in that platform.  He does not pretend to be a Liberal-  Laborite. He is a man. Against him is  "Old Bill" Hunter, who is fighting his  own fight in his own way, and taking  pleasure in it. It is an even break, aud  ' when the election is over there will be no  hard feelings in the Slocan. In Cranbrook riding, Thomas Caven   will   win  against Dr. King, because he is making it  his business to see voters personally. W.  R. Ross will be elected in Fernie riding  because he has the voters behind him.  Iu Revelstoke, "Tom" Taylor is up agaiust  "Jim" Kellie, who is posing a.s an Independent, and will win out. George A.  Fraser has tho battle won in Grand Forks  riding, nnd the Liberals admit it. In  Greenwood riding, Dr. Spankie has two  opponents and will win out. Rossland  is close, but Hon. A. S. Goodeve should  be able to overcome lawyer Macdonald,  There will be seven Liberal-Conservatives  elected from Kootenay and the Boundary  sure. On Vancouver Island, The Tribune's advices are that Comox, Newcastle, Cowichau, and Esquimalt will return Grant, Bryden, Skinner, and Pooley.  Victoria will return two more sure. Seven  from Kootenay and the Boundary and six  from the Island makes 18. Cariboo will  return two, Lillooet has returned one,  Yale, Kamloops, Okonagau, and Similkameen will all go one way; so here are 8  more, making 21, or half the house. Siu-o-  ly Vancouver and the lower Fraser river  riding and the upper coast can return  enough Liberal-Conservatives to give the  party a good working majority.  Was Two to One For Wright.  The Liberals had a meeting at Trail on  Thursday night. Candidate Parr was  supported by candidate Macdonald and  Smith Curtis. Candidate Wright was  represented by A. H. McNeill of Rossland. Fifty-nine electors were present,  and of the 59, 40 are enrolled members of  the Liberal-Conservative association and  are supporting Harry Wright. Yet the  meeting is reported as a Liberal triumph  iu both the Rossland Miner and the Nelson Daily News.  SED EVERYONE  Nelson has hold its first exhibition, aud  there is but one expressed opinion heard,  and that is that tho exhibition was a success in every way. But The Tribune will  only speak of tho exhibition as showing  what the southeastern part of tho province is capable of in the way of producing-  food products. Had anyono said five  years ago that tliere would be nn exhibition of agricultural products at Nelson in  li)0_, thoy would have been laughed at.  Yet in 19013 there was exhibited at Nelson  nearly one hundred varieties and kinds of  fruits and vegetables entered by a hundred different persons, whose farms, orchards and gardens are scattered throughout  Kootenay and southern Yale districts. It  was a revelation, and The Tribune predicts that within five years the people of  southeastern British Columbia will be  producing hot only what they consume,  but will be shipping thousands of boxes  and crates of fruits and vegetables to the  Northwest Territories and to Manitoba.  Another creditable phase of the exhibition is, that it was a success financially.  There will be uo deficit to be met by passing around the hat. The directors of the  Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association will have a clean balance-sheet to  show the members of the association.  Against much opposition and ridicule,  John Houston secured an appropriation of  $2000 from the provincial legislature, and  the Jf-SOOO was in the bands of the treasurer of the association BEFORE the exhibition was opened to the public.  Notes of the Exhibition.  Among the Trail visitors to the fair  were mayor and Mrs. Schofield, D. F.  Jelly the orchardist, y George L. Merry,  and J. H. Clay the market gardener. Mr.  Jelly and Mr. Clay captured nearly BO  prizes between them.  G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo had a number  of exhibits-of fruit of his own growing  and that of his neighbors. He took first  prizes for Beiteuheim'er and Colvert apples  and second for Pacific Coast Trailing  blackberries. - He made entries for J.  Ridell and J. Clark, and the former took  second for Wealthy .'apples and. tlie latter  second for Gravenstien apples.  ������������.. C. W. Busk of Kokanee creek and Rev.  J. Calvert of New Denver had splendid  exhibits of their work as amateur photographers. The New Denver divine capr  tarred the red ribbon.  .... Edwaxd.i..Grii5zelljE-j__the^ Hoover���stroet -  florist,   made  a fine exhibit  of potted  plants and flowers, including nearly every  variety that can be grown in this climate.  He was awarded a diploma.  One of the unique exhibits was a catch  of trout frozen in a block of ice. Ed  Bosquet, Nelson's champion fisherman,  made the catch, and the freezing was  done in P. Burns & Co.'s cold storage  plant.  George W. Hale & Co. exhibited designs of stoam, electric, and gasoline  launches and row boats, and thoir friends  say they- should design a yacht to capture  the America's cup.  J. H. Clay, who has a farm a short distance up the gulch from Trail, made  splendid exhibits of vegetables, and captured 15 first and 0 second prizes. He  also took the sweepstakes in that class.  The soil around Trail is well adapted for  vegetables and the climate is probably as  mild as in any section of Kootenay,  There were a number of exhibits of  wood carving done by amateurs, which  were most creditable.  =^AUa^_Loaii,_tUe.photpgrapher,.exhibited.  a fine collection of photographs.  There was wheat in the sheaf from  Kokanee ranch aud clover fiye feet high-  There wore half a dozen entrios of sunflowers, the tallest stalk being over 12  feet high and the flower 14 inches in  diameter.  Onslow Newliug took first prize for  Clapp's Favorite pears, and James Tarry  exhibited Duchess d'Augeliuc pears from  his Slocan river ranch,  D. F. Jelly is Trail's orchardist, aud his  exhibits of fruit show that he understands  the business. He captured a number of  prizes for apples aud ivhivs,  W, H. Covert of Grand Forks niti4o as  fine a display of frait as will be mode at  any fair in thc province. It included  apples, peaches, pears, and plums. The  fruit was clean, ripe, of good size, aud of  excellent flavor. Grand Forks may be a  smelting, center, but Mr, Covert has  proved that it is also iu the center of a  splendid fruit district.  There was an exhibit of oil from the  famed Flathead river oil fields, which are  not open to locators because of a lack of  backbone in someone,  No finer crabapples will be exhibited at  the Spokane fruit fair than were thope  entered at Nelson's flrst fair. They were  line in size, in color, and in flavor.  The plums, peaches, grapes, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and prunes  were not only remarkable for the variety,  but for the si_e and quality.  Hon. R. F. Green of Ka,slo is classed as  a politician, but lie is also a fruit grower.  In his absence from home his son "gob"  entered fruit, and carried off first prize  for plums.  Fred J. Squires, Nelson's pioneer mo*.-.-  chant tailor, had a display of tents and  awnings of hjs own manufacture. He  makes a specialty of protean touts.  McLachlan Brothers mode a good display of stoves and ranges, ami n good exhibit of builders' hardware.  The Mason &rRjsc;h Company of Toronto  had on exhibition pianos, pianolas, inil  Morley & Co. in the same booth made a  display of musical instruments.  D. McArthur & Co. made a flue displny  of furniture, showing handsome sets for  the parlor, including the latest designs in  Davenports. In furniture for dining  rooms, the buffets in oak nnd plate glass  wero most attractive j  Braokman-Ker Milling Company, Lim -  ited, exhibited rollcdjoats, rolled wheat,  and self-rising buckwlieat flour from then-  mills at Strathcona, Alberta.  Shackletou & Simj-on of Nelson had  on exhibition marble iand granite monuments, made from marble quarried near  Salmo and Kaslo and granite quarried at  Nelson. |;  Hugh H. Ross, engineer of P. Burns &  Co.'s cold storage plant; exhibited chairs  and stools made from horns, which showed  Mr*. Ross to be an artistic workman.  Nelson Hardware Coiuipany had exhibits of sporting goods, such as guns and  fishing tackle. I������'  The Nelson Gas Woyis had a display of  gas heating and cooking stoves, and its  managers pointed with'pride to the exhibits of bread baked oni their stoves by the  ladies of Nelson. j ,  Patenaude Brothers exhibited the most  complete set of watchmaking tools in the  province. They also iipde a nice display  of watches and jewehr-j.!  Why Laboring Men j[ Should Vote   for  John Hoaston.  "Thrico is he armed who Kath his quarrel itist."  There are two phases of the contest now  before the electorate of this city. The  first views it from the/standpoint of federal and provincial politics, while the  other regards it from] the narrower but  probably more vital -point of view���that of  the personalities and records of the respective candidates'and their relations to  the city of Nelson.     ' j       >-  Many of the voters oil this occasion will  exercise their franchise at the call of party  and. are not likely to be swayed at this  juncture by whatever arguments that may  be presented one way or the other. With  the Labor Party, however, the majority  of members are presumably free from the  dictates of either of the great political  parties, and are everywhere looking at the  two candidates purely frpin the personal  point of view, with the intention of choosing whichever one appeals to them as  being the best man to represent us at Victoria. This appeal, therefore, is portion-,  larly addressed to those whose choice of  ^candidate-r-St8-on--the.p-rsohaliti-_,--ree^  ords and general attitude towards local  matters of John Houston and Sidney  Stockton Taylor.  We have had John Houston as a member from this riding for three years, during which period he has given tho community abundant evidence of a political  sagacity of no mean order and of a tenacity of purpose admirable in its sincerity.  The evidence in support of this statement  can be found in the exceptionally large  appropriations secured for the Nelson district, but which are not out of proportion  to our just rights. Above all is the valuable power site obtained in .the face of the  opposition of the Boninijgtoii Falls Power  Company, with whom, it may be said in  passing, there wns an opportunity for as  fine a piecp of political treachery as eyer  presented itself fo a Jess loyal representative thaii John Houston.  Vain, indeed, haye been the attempts to  "fdsfetr=Oir"t-~J6liii_Hdustoir sonie action  that might be magnified by the persuasive  eloquence of zealous political enemies into  something that would savor of political  debauchery ��� vain, indeed, has it been,  and wo find today, after three years of  honest political servio. in tho interests of  this community, that John Houston can  stand on any platform find challenge tho  foe to bring forward the slightest charge  of improper use of his political position.  Yet, labor is asked to assist iu deposing  this trusty servant in favor of another  belonging" to -i profession in which many  people have liad little confidence since  (lie world began. His opponent lias different poljtictil colors to his mast and is,  by virtu** of Ills profession, "'1 possibly  curtain favorable environments', imagined  by his zpnjous followers to bp ti bofter nian  to represent ns than our prpsopt member.  _lr. Taylor re]jus largely on hjs ability to  demonstrate by plapsjbjti argnnipnt that  the party to which he owes allegiance will  do better work in cleansing t)ie Apgcnu  stables at Victoria than Jus opponent.  It can hardly he ..aimed in this particular that Sidney Stockton Taylor has a  mortgage on this privilege, fo*- }f John  Houston as a private politjoiau brings to  us a .lean recorr], how much less is he  likely to join hands with any party or  government kept alive by a system of politics which he has demonstrated does not  assimilate with his own conceptions of  right? Therefore, whether John Houston  sits on one side of the house or tho other,  his personality will be in evidence, and be  far more so than that of his opponent,  however good he may be in speechmaking  and plausible lobbying, the outcome of  years at his profession qf patching broken  financial- hearts and keeping'ii}iye financial disputes to the ultimate advantage of  Sidney (Stockton Taylor.  The Liberal candidate is a pleasant  speaker, and trained ju a}l tho arts of  his profession; lie knows well how to  play on the emotions of men, and thereby  carries some with him on the point of  mere passing smliiuent. But all this is  on the sin-face, mid to the keen observer is  nothing more tlmu platform sentimentality to catch the passing broozo of sidewalk  fancy. Contrast nil this witli the rugged  talk of John lf'iaston, the man of labor,  who will remain so tijl the end, though  fortune should smile ou him,   Where will  the Liberal candidate be found, if by dint  of further financial accumulations and  political power lie rises abovo tho masses?  Echo answers, where? And the answer  is, strongly entrenched behind a wall of  financial power, basking in the sunlight  of social intoxication, and using tho Labor  Party much the same as he uses his front  door mat. This is merely the historical  record of the ultimate of successful men  of the class to which Sidney Stockton  Taylor belongs.  Quite a number in this citv profess to  think that John Houston is hardly the  right man to represent so important a city  as Nelson.  They say that we should have  a member carrying more social weight���  for the social side of politics is a factor  nowadays. They would substitute Sidney  Stockton Taylor if for no other reason  than that he is fitted to shine at an afternoon tea with Victoria's 400 at government  house. It may be that John Houston never  had  on a dress suit, and  that  Sidney  Stockton knows the correct way to eat  peas or drink tea, but we are not concerned with the side issues which have  really no bearing on the question before  us, and that is, which of these two men  will make the best representative for the  Labor Party?  The Liberal candidate is a lawyer and a  king's counsel. There may be in the wide  worid a few of thc legal profession whose  hearts beat in unison with the great mass  of toilers. Sad as it to say, however, the  large majority of this class cannot, in the  very nature of their profession, have any  sentiment for the wage-earners, however  much they may at election times seek to''  deny it. Lawyers gravitate toward capital as the whisky fiend towards the saloon  or the morphine fiend to the drug store.  Their'very existence depends on '.their,  ability to handle disputes arising between  men on the system adopted in the old  fable of the monkey and the cats in a dispute over a piece of cheese found by  chance; the matter was referred to the  monkey, who halved it, as he thought,  and placed the two halves in the scales.  One side went down, whereupon he bit a  piece out of it, when the other side went  down; by keeping this up the monkey got  the lot and the cats got nothing. : That's  law! A-   ':-���������  Stress is laid'on the fact that the Liberal candidate took the chair at the meeting of the U. B. of R..E, in the early  spring. Surely the labor element is not  so foolish as to endow Mr. Taylor with  'anything amounting to magnanimity in  such an action! Has he not been heading  politically for this for a year past? Has  he not baited his hook all. along to catch  -thc-'labor t-vote?-'���And'-yt-t "w*h.n election *  time conies this is hold upas a reason why  labor should vote for him. The very  thought that Sidney Stockton Taylor, if  elected, will havo the interests of labor at  heart is enough to make Homy George  rise from his grave! It is hardly conceivable that intelligent workingmen can be  so deluded into such wild, imagination.  To vote for the Liberal candidate with  that end in view is to commit political  suicide. Let no labor man be deceived as  to this. Sidney Stockton Taylor, if by  any chance he is elected, will keep Sidney  Stockton's interests well to the front iu  Victoria���that is what he is going there  for assuredly.  No pretense is made to surround John  Houston with a halo of glory. He has  political faults. One thing is, HE IS  HQNEgT, and in these days of political  immorality it will be nothing short of a  calamity to turn down a member who has  given earnest demonstration of his ability  to represent a community wisely, well,  and HONESTLY, The vote of the independent laborer is asked foi* John Houston for the reasons mentioned above, nnd  fm'tlie*-vthat-by-=assistiug-to-rehirn=him  The S.

E. are opposed to Mr.Cayen.:  We, the undersigned, locomotive engineers at Cranbrook, take'  exception to the article, as it is misleading and unauthorized by  the B. of L? E. as a body.    It is well known that labor organiza-V  tions or unions, especially the B. of L. E., as an order or union';--  do not take part in politics; so Mr. Gill's article is not in "'error,  when he says, in effect, that the B. of L. E, as a body has taken  no part whatever in politics or given any promise to support Mr.  Caven as a body.    Mr. Gill was simply over-zealous  in  the;"  interests of the candidate he favors; but we, locomotive engineers ;���  at Cranbrook, as individuals, believe that Mr. Caven will best"1  represent our interests, as he is a member of organized laborf?  and in case of his election would safely guard their iuterestsVinl'  the legislature, therefore we bespeakfor him your earnest support?  and vote: v,*  W, EDWARDS.

All cannot be satisfied, Mr, Taylor will  carry no maro power as a unit to'Victoria  than John Houston, who mast decidedly  has a greater personality, by the power of  which ho will aooomplish infinitely more  than the rhetorical efforts of lawyer Taylor, however pleasing these efforts may bo  to the ears of members.  The cause of labor will be more advanced by a.man of John Houston's temperament thau it cau possibly hope to be  by a lawyer. On tho one hand we have a  man belonging to a profession which i.s  saturated with greed of gain. On the  other a mai- rugged at times���nay, uncouth, but beneath whoso unattractive exterior thoro beats a heart tuned to the  better and ui'sclfisl; aspirations of men, a  heart that does not seek its own advance-  ment in every action done, but does it because it is duty, unmindful of results.  That heart belongs to John Houston, our  present member, aud labor can give no  finer endorsafion of its unqualified approval of an earnostnoss of purpose in the  interests of a community, than to assist iu  placing him at the head of tho poll one  week from today, F. VV. Pettit.  Nelson is a City of Homes.  It is said Victoria is a city of homes, iu  the true meaning of the word'"home."  What is true of Victoria is equally true of  Nelson. No town of its sizo in Canada  has so many homes,   A  home do��is not  necessarily nieau a large aud expensively  constructed building. The building may  be inexpensive aud unpretentious, yet be  surrounded, by evidences that show the  people who Jive in it are making it a  home, Among tlio homes in Nelson i.s  that of J. J. Driscoll on Observatory  street. While there are more pretentious  buildings than }>h\ PriscoH's cottage, no  home in Nejson has so many evidences  that tho occupants are striving to make a  homo in tho sense that Canadians understand tho word. Mr. Driscoll has a garden and orchard that has not an equal iu  Nelson- Ho grows more and a greater  variety of fruit than any resident within  the city; yet when ho built his home in  18!)*. up in the Hoover Addition, as it was  then called, people said he was "uwav out  of the world."

GOODEVE  FOR ROSSLAND  l^-TURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 26,   1903  Kelson has had  two  public  ;.tings.   The first was opened  political  by John  luston, the candidate of the Liberal-  nservatives. The second* was opened  S.S.Taylor, K.C, the candidate of  >_ Liberals.. The number at both nioet-  :s was about the same. Which of the  ) candidates made the best showing  'ier the same conditions, that is, open-^  I; a meeting and being confined strictly  |-a discussion of the principles laid down  [their respective party platforms? The  b candidate is a lawyer, a profession re-  [ring "gift of gab." The other caudi-  ce is a printer, a trade in which "silence  >olden.'.' What the one said is printed  I can be read at any time. What the  ler said is not printed nnd cannot be  ived. John Houston's declarations arc  print. S. S. Taylor's statenicuts are  jrely spoken words which have not been  orded. Every fair-minded person who  ird both speeches will say that tlie ef-  ,t of the printer was better than that of  i lawyer. The one aspires to be the  der of the Liberal Party; tlie other has  jhigher ambition than to servo well the  jiple among whom he lives, for if lie  yes them well he will be doing thc  ivince a service. Which of the two will  ;t represent the people of Nelson City  ing in the legislature: the man who  1 sacrifice everybody and everything to  ry out his ambitions, or the man whose  y desire is the advancement of the  rn in which he lives and the country  rounding that town?  handidate John L. Retallack of Kaslo  jl John Keen should be restrained or  Isiplined by the cooler headed aud fairer  jaded leaders of the Liberal party.  |_irs is not a straightforward fight for  platform and principles of the party  jich they affect to represent. Tliey  j)W little of political principles, and ap-  f-ently they care much less. Their  jgle idea of political warfare is to down  Job" Green. Their campaign is one in  lich fallacy and subterfuge are too  lent. They flatter and cajole the work-  In, for whom both iu theory and in  Ictice they have hitherto evinced con-  lipt. They now say to him, if you  |mot vote for the Liberalism which  represent, then by  all means  vote  for the Socialist, for Socialism sifter  all is but the evolution of Liberalism.  They niistify or deliberately falsify the  parliamentary record and send broadcast  misstatements which the most cursory  glance at the journals disproves. They  ascribe to the minister of mines votes  which he never gave or distort them to  meet their unfair ends. Men who appeal  to the heads of the electorate should be  straightforward ami honest. Men who  appeal to the prejudices of the electorate  are never straightforward and are seldom  honest. "Bob" Green in Kuslo riding is  not appealing to the prejudices of a class;  he is asking for thoir support as a Liberal-  Conservative, who has served six years in  the legislature, and whose record is  known. If his record is bad, it is the duty*?  of his opponents to show wherein it zi  bad. Shouting "down Green" is not tja*-  gnment. No man charged with a crime  is convicted because someone cries "stop^  thief."   The Miners' Union of Nelson held two  meetings last week to bring 'about an endorsement of S. S. Taylor, the Liberal  candidate. At the first meeting there  were fourteen members present, and tho  vote stood: Taylor 12, Houston. 1, oue  not voting. The next meeting was held  pn Saturday.'-night. There were 9 present. At that meeting Houston had no  friends. The-Nelson Miners' Union has  less than thirty votes in Nelson. Tho  man Avho worked up tho endorsement is  named Mackay, a bitter and vindictive  Liberal, who attempted to get the Independent Labor Party to endorse Taylor,  and who wtis turned down so hard that ho  resigned from that party. The endorsement of the Liberal candidate at this late  date by the miners' union 'will act as a  boomerang, just ns did the publication of  the names on Taylor's nomination paper.  There are other labor unions in Nelsou,  and their members resent the action of the  miners' union as an attempt to dragoon  union men into supporting a lawyer as  against a union printer.  of Nelson Miners' Union to vote for S. S  Taylor, a lawyer, Frank Phillips violated the Constitution of the Nelson Miners' Union and showed that he is not in  sympathy with the fundamental principles  of unionism.  Two Political Marplots.  David W. Higgins of Victoria is classed  as a political marplot by the Victoria Colonist.    Higgins  is wholly without political influence.   Here iu  Nelson there is  another Higgins, whose name  is   David  Mark Carley.    While professing  tt)  Vie n  Conservative aud a great admirer of Mich-  are  McBride and A. 15. McPhillips  and  It. L. Borden, he is doing everything in  his power to throw these men down. Like  Higgins, lie is wholly without influence iu  the community in which he lives; but  like Higgins, ho is in a position  to circulate his venomous utterances through the  Liberal press, who gladly print the letters  of the one and quoto the other as the editor of ti. great Conservative newspaper.  The Victoria Colonist shows up Higgins  in the following:    "The political difficulties in  Estjuimalt tire happily arranged.  Tho electors of the district, of whom a  great majority are   in   favor   of   O.   E.  Pooley, have so declared in no uncertain  terms and with most; flattering evidences  of tlie esteem in which he is  held in  the  district.    He litis been endorsed as   the  Liberal - Conservative   candidate  in   the  forthcoming election.   D. AV. Higgins declares that tlie fact that he received only  two votes out of a total present at the convention of one hundred and twenty-one,  was  duo to the fact  that he refused to  abide by tho decision of the convention;  that if he had agreed to decide by the decision  of the convention he would have  received a much 'larger vote.  Possibly so.  We are unwilling to believe that any man  would possess such overweening self-conceit as to introduce himself as a candidate  for representative honors who could only  receive two out of one hundred and twenty-one votes.   At the sauie time, we arc  bound to acknowledge that the reason Mr.  L iggius had for uot submitting himself to  e decision of the convention was that he  new himself to bo iu a hopeless minority  t' the electors present.   His excuse that  e meetiug was not representative of tho  Bsquimalt district was a mere   excuse.  'Everybody knows that the meeting was  thoroughly  representative,   and   nobody  'knows it more thoroughly than Mi*. Higgins himself, as is proved by the fact that  it has decided him not to submit his name  to the electors at all.   Very different from  the attitude of Mr. Higgins was that of  Mr. Croft.   When it was made plain that  Mr. Pooley was the choice of the Liberal-  Conservative electors of Esquimalt, Mr.  Croft bowed loyally to their decision and  at once agreed to  support Mr.  Pooley.  Mr. Higgins is not supporting Mr. Pooley.  Far otherwise.   Having been tossed from  Victoria  into  Esquimalt,   he   has   been  hurled back into Victoria to devise   as  much mischief for the Liberal-Conservative Party as is in his mind, and to accomplish as much as is in his   power,  which is fortunately very little.'.'  Judging from the action taken on Saturday last by the Nelson  Miners' Union, that union, through its officers, is a political organization as well as a trades union. Under the constitution and by-laws of the Western Federation of Miners,  no action binding a local union as a whole cau be taken  without a referendum vote, aud the seal of the union can at no  time be used to authenticate a document unless the document  has been authorized in the regular way at a regular meeting of  ;hing that is specially prohibited is political  regular meeting of a union,  he officers of Nelsou Miners'Union do not  itution and by-laws or respect the wishes  of the union. These officials resolved some  time ago to endorse the Liberal candidates iu Nelson and  Ymir, and in order to carry out their own wishes have violated  e and trampled on the rights of nine-tenths of  the union.    The  discussion or political action at  But, apparently,  observe the conslji  of  the  members ���_  their oaths of offic  The consensus of opinion of  the "independent minds" who attended the political meeting on Monday night is  that  S. S.  Taylor, K.C, is not iu the same  class as Charles Wilson, K.C.   Taylor is  =iiot-a--reasoner--;-h&-is=n*tcroly-=ar-specious^  declaimcr.     When   confined   to   giving  reasons for adopting or rejecting political  principles, he shows himself to be superficial iu thc extreme.   Ho can build up a  talk   founded on a deliberately  uttered  falsehood or on a specious declaration, but  he is unable to convince thinking nien  that he is either an honest reasoncr or a  sincere thinker.   Every method and every  utterance wheu  he   is   on the platform  shows him to bo the lawyer working for  a fee.    The Rosslaud Miner is keeping up its  reputation of being the dirtiest and most  malignant newspaper in the province. It  professes to be Conservative, yet it is supporting the Liberal Party candidates in  Rosslaud and Ymir and Nelson, three of  the most important ridings in Kootenay.  A Competitive Coal Company���  Quite recently several of the officials of  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company from  Toronto have made a visit to the ; company's properties at Fernie, and made optimistic reports of the outlook there.   We  are pleased to hear it, as the gentlemen  should know what they are talking about.  But some of the things that G. G. S. Lindsay, K.C, one of the directors, is credited  with saying, would have been left better  unsaid���at least from the company's point  of view.  Referring to the coke shipments,  Mr. Lindsay stated that the shipments to  the Granby smelter, among others, had  been stopped because they were "overstocked."   This was only half the truth,  as the reason the Granby shipments were  ordered discontinued for a few days was  because the smelter was blown out for a  few days.    But this is no large matter, if  the coal company now keeps up the supply, which it appears they will bo able to  do.   In referring to the quality of the coal  being opened up by the International Coal  & Coke Company, however, Mr. Lindsay  'made^some^remarks^that-will^do'him-no^  good.    Here is what ho is reported to have  said, verbatim:    "We are glad to find tho  Granby people entering the field.   After  five j'cnrs of work and the expenditure of  an enormous amount of money, thc Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Compairy has got coke  down to as low a figure as it cau be produced at a profit, even on a very extensive  scale.    The Blairmore district   has,  undoubtedly, large fields of coal,  some of  which  have been tested and abandoned,  and I very much  doubt if there is any  seam of coal in that district that will produce good coke.    1 have seen  samples  of  coke made from coal taken  from the vein  upon which the Granby people arc working, nnd it is very high in ash.   It may he  that tliey will, on other scttnis,  obtain a  coal  which  will mako  good coke, but if  tliey do it will be the only instance, in that  district where such coal has been obtained,  and I would not be willing to believe that  such coal exists until I see the coke."  unions into politic  should  employers  the members of .their union.    If the officers of miners' unions  are so unfair to thi rank and file of the members, in attempting to  coerce them polit cally, is it auy wonder that their employers  are   doing  likewise?    If  one   set  of  men (officers of  miners'  unions) are attempting to drive and coerce the members of the  al action against their own better judgment,  be condemned if the}* retaliate ?    That the}*  are retaliating is evidenced b}' the article printed below, which  js clipped from a 3utte (Montana) newspaper.    In two ridings  in British Columtia, less than forty men have attempted to dictate to 490 how they MUST vote.    Will the 400 vote as the 40  say   they   MUST?     Will   the   individual   members   of   the  Nelson Miners' Union surrender their political rights, the right  to vote as they please, at the dictation of the dozen who met in  miners' union hall in Nelson Saturday and violated their obligation and their oath of office?    A large majority of the members  of the Nelson  Miners' Union will undoubted!}' resent the attempt that is being made to turn  their union  into  a  political  club for the benefit of S. S. Taylor, K.C., and "Alf" Parr.    The  following- shows  how  employers of labor over in Montana are  retaliating.    Is it a pleasant picture?    Is it pleasing to see here;  in British Columbia a few men like Frank Phillips and Charles  A. Mackay and" Alf Parr and Pat Daly  attempting to coerce  members of an organization into taking political action contrary  to every semblance of right aud justice aud freedom that the  individual has under riot only the laws of the land, but the laws  of their -labor organizations ?    Will it be pleasing to see adopted  iu   British  Columbia  the   methods that are being adopted in  Montana by employers of  labor to "blacklist" men who vote  contrary to the wishes and the interests of  their employers?  the one has as much right as the other to coerce.    The oue has  as much right as the other to blacklist.    A large majority of the  people of British Columbia will condemn such methods, aud if  The Tribune is  uot greatly mistaken, a large majority of the  people of Nelson will resent the efforts S. S. Taylor, K.C, is  making to array men iii one labor organization not only agaiust  each-other-pbut-agaiust��� tlie-nieiii-bers-of-othei^labor  tions.  ^organiza--  " Every member [of tlie Nelson Miners'  " Union No. !)(!, W.

The words  quoted above are a part of tho printed  Constitution and By-Laws of the Nelson  Miners' Union. Every member of the  union who has a right to vote is a part of  the government of the country and has a  duty to perform, yet the right to perform  that duty has been taken away from some  200 members of the union by n dozen  members who have arrogated to themselves the right to dictate to the 200 how  they MUST vote. This i.s a free country,  and every man who has the right to vote  should hit ve the privilege of voting as he  individually deems best, not as is deemed  best by the officers of a trades union or tt,  fraternal society. Iu publishing over his  name its secretary of the Nelson Miners'  ���Union a mandate ordering the members  Compulsory Arbitration.  The Liberal candidate, in referring to  this mutter the other evening at the opera  house, said that it had worked very satisfactorily in New Zealand. Possibly. But  he omitted to enlighten the audience on  the fact that conditions in that colony are  vastly different to what they are in 'Canada. The government there is of a paternal 11atare, is elected by thc people for the  people, and not in the slightest way for  thc benefit, of corporations. It follows,  therefore, that the settlement of labor difficulties can be carried out in this manner, inasmuch as there would be no danger to labor that a tribunal before whom  matters of this kind would be adjusted  could in any way be -'packed" by the  other side. If labor i.s assured of this, it  can safely extend a cordial welcome to the  scheme. A striking illustration of the effectiveness of arbitration, although in this  instance; it was not compulsory, was seen  a year or so ago in the case of the London  & Northwestern Railway Company of  England, when it bishop look jwirt in the  adjustment of the differences, to the grot it  and surprising satisfaction of all concerned. The principle is right, but in this  land, if party governments, lawyers aud  others of rhe following are to have it say  in the appointment of thc tribunal, labor  will be wise to stay out of the deal.  "Going to leave town, Jack?"  "I got the 'blue ticket' this morning,"  was thc answer.    "Yon know what that  means."  This conversation, audible to the little  crowd which had gathered at an outgoing  train at the Anaconda depot today, wtis  the means of divulging to thc Reveille  correspondent a remarkable state of affairs  in this city.  The very latest in Standard Oil infamy  is the "blue ticket."  Prclimiuiiry to the opening of the  Washoe works here, tho Standard Oil  blacklist, so well known in the oil regions  of Pennsylvania, has made its appearance  in Anaconda.  The "blue ticket" is what the men call  it, and if you find your name on a blue  ticket you might as well go homo, begin  to pack up your belongings, and get ready  to walk out of town, if yon haven't the  money to ride.  The introduction of the "blue ticket"  discloses a condition that has never been  equalled in the trust-cursed existence of  the city. It proves that the infamous  "blue ticket" is but the beginning of another era of tyranny which will incense  thc independent citizens of the state.  To describe thc "blue ticket", it is necessary to go back a few months.    Soou  after the Amalgamated Copper Comr. y  sprang into existence, one of the most  "convincing proofs that it was an offshoot  of the Standard Oil Company was the introduction of tho "pedigree slip" and tho  "brass tag" iu the Anaconda works.  Most of thc readers of the Reveille aro  familiar with the "pedigree slip" and the  "brass tag." Tlie former is a form which  must be filled out by every applicant for  work. In it he must state his age. his  nationality, his birthplace, and, in short,  supply the company with a complete and  satisfactory- biographical sketch.  "The "brass tag" was but a part of the  new system of keeping track of the employes. It: is the same 'plan that the Stand-  ard Oil Company has worked successfully  for years in its refineries in the east.  If the applicant for work passed (lu>  rigid examination and his credentials satisfied the agents of the compnuy, he was  given a brass tag with a number on it.  When he went on shift ho passed this  tag through the little window at the timekeeper's office and got a red card, on  which was registered with an automatic  machine the. timo of his arrival.  This, now, became his authority to go  to work, lt served at once as a check, a  means of identification, and a convenience  for keeping the time of the employe.  At the conclusion of the shift he passed  in the red card, which, was again stumped  by the automatic timepiece, and received  the brass cheek in return, which he presented iu turn at the beginning of the  next shift.  Recently many of tbe men on returning  from work found when tliey passed in  their red tickets tit the timekeeper's oflice  that thoy were not giveii tins customary  brass check in return, but that a blue  ticket was displayed where the check was  usually hung.  Iu many instances the men thus summarily discharged were recognized r.s  thoroughly competent aud reliable at their  work, and the only cause of their dismissal could be found in the fact that they  refused to follow the dictates of the bosses  in polities and vote the ticket the Amalgamated had decided to support.  It was some time beforo the men knew  the extent of the company's new method  of blacklisting. First, several of them  tried for work in the other departments of  the Amalgamated Company's works in  Anaconda. They found that the "blue  ticket" stood against them at the foundry,  at the brickyards, and on the B., A. & P.  railroad.  Tliey they left town, and. found that  the "blue ticket" had killed their chances  of employment in the Amalgamated works  in every part of the state.  Many of them inquired concerning the  chances of getting work iu the Amalgamated mines iu Butte, when these latter reopen.  They found that they could not got  work in any of the company's mines,'in  Ihe Colorado smelter, or in 1 in* Butte and  Boston smelter. The unenviable notoriety  of the "blue ticket" hud preceded them. '  The man with the blue! card i.s marked  by the company.  He can't get work in  the smelters at  Great-Falls.  He can't get work iu the coal mines at  Belt.  He can't get work in the lumber mills  at Hamilton.  He can't get work at the coal mines or  coking plant at Storrs.  He can't get work in the coal mines at  Cebo.  In logging camps and coal camps, in  mii.'es and smelters, the "blue ticket" has  done its deadly work. J  The pedigree card has aided in identifying the nam, and from the few who have  come hack to Anaconda to gather their  belongings nnd move out with their families it litis beeu learned that after making  the circle of the entire state, in no placJe  where the Amalgamated Company controls i.s it possible lo obtain work with the  stigma of the "blue ticket" attached to  the man who seeks employment.  It i.s difficult to imagine the feelings  that this new tyranny of the company has  engendered in thc minds of the men. A  few simple comparisons made aniong  themselves shows that thero exists at  present in this city of Anaconda as complete a system of espionage as prevails  around the person of the czar of Russia,  and that any kind of a public declaration  of political iiidepondaneo will win for the  thoughtless person thc dreaded "blue  ticket."  It is remembered by many that they'  were led into apparently innocent��� conversation concerning politics; the question  was asked if they approved of the course  of the county assessor, who hns raised tlie  assessment of the smelter several million  dollars, or if thoy agreed with the sentiment which compelled the company to do  something toward abating the smoke nuisance in the valley.  Too late many of the "blue ticket" men  discovered that thoy should havo been  more reticent, and recognized iu the apparently innocent inquirer oue of tho  company's "spotters."  There" is no longer the slightest doubt-  in tho minds of the people of Anaconda  that the works were closed down to weed  out, all who are politically opposed to the  Amalgamated Company, or who have  opinions of their own which they voice ou  election day. Whatever doubt previously  existed has been dissipated since the inau;  {juration of tho "blue ticket."  In effectual co-operation with the "blue  ticket" is tho company store. No man  marked with a ticket of azure hue cau get  a pair of shoestrings at the company store  without thc money.  It is not generally known outside of  Anaconda that the company store methods are just as pernicious as ever. Men  still are required to go to the store to get  their pay checks, and the amount of their  indebtedness to the store is deducted from  the check beforo payment.  The independent merchants have made  several ineffectual attempts to compete  with the "store," and for a time it seemed  as if the men were going to have an opportunity to trade where they desired, but  the shut-down, the "blue ticket" and the  return to old-time coercion on the part of  the company have intimidated thc employes so that the commercial branch of  the Standard Oil tree is flourishing as of  old.  Tho Copper City Commercial Company  ���the euphonious name of the company  store���employs one man solely to spend  his time at the works and watch the men.  He goes to the timekeeper's oflice and  finds out the exact amount to tho credit  of every man employed on the hill.  If the books showed that yon had $-15  coming to yon at the Washoe works, you  may rest assured that you can get ��_.*3  worth of goods at 'the Copper City.  It has been learned that the "blue  ticket," like the "brass check" and the  "pedigree card," is a Pennsylvania importation, and that for souie years the Stand-  am Oil Company has employed this  method of blacklisting men whom they  could not manage politically.  Assessor Levengood is still standing the  fire of the Amalgamated newspapers,  which have taken a keen dislike to this  ollicer for his fearless stand on county  valuation. Mayor Frinke was elected by  the votes of thc people of Anaconda, yet  theeompany-is^throwing-eyery-stumbliug-  block in his way and trying to hamper  him, as it is mayor Mullins in Butte.  Judge Smith of Lewis and Clarke county, before whom the municipal contest  was tried, decided th.tt the mayor was  duly elected ami duly qualified. Still the  Amalgamated newspapers are keeping up  the fight, and are in every conceivable  manner trying to tie up the new administration���much of their work being done  under the guise of legitimate interest.  These are the methods by which the  Amalgamated Company is ti-ying to reform Anaconda, mid by tyranny and injustice win lights that they cannot win by  fair means.  But the workingmen do not take kindly  to this "blue ticket*' plan, and while it  may have the effect of making men nioro  reticent and cautions in expressing their  opinions politically, it will defeat its own  end on election day, when the Standard  Oil crowd will discover once more that coercion and tyranny do not win elections  in Montana.  520 Water St.  Telephone  140  NELSON  STEAM  LAUNDRY  Work done l��>- liuml or mncliine, :in<l on short  notice.

All dac religion, politics, Wall street  and sporting news i.s to Americans, eating  is to de French.  "Dat's do trouble wit your dinky nation," I says to Duchess. "If (ley goes to  war dey gets licked; if dey digs a subway  it's a grave; if dey breeds racers dey is  ekates; if dey plays polo dey only cuts up  de turf; if dey tights duels dey only makes  faces, all because dey is never Making  about de ting dey is making ti bluff at, but  is ti uking about how deir grub is to bo  sauced."  Mostly I can get a fall out of Duchess  by pulling a hammer on do French, but  dis time she only gives mo de baby stare,  and says, "Oheems," she says, ������Cheonis,  you have only of the ignorance of which  you speak. Besides dat dey is de greatest  people on cart, de French is dc most brave,  de most noble, and de only ones dat knows  how to dress. Dey did everything before  anybody else done it. Did we not go to  see M'sien Suddorn in de American play  of ���Hamlet' lust year, and did we not see  de same play by Madam Bernhardt���  ���L'Aiglou-���de year before? De French  is always ahead.''  "On your way, woman," I says. -'Hamlet was wrote for Eddi(e.

"Dey has a good brand of hot air on  tap, anyway,-' I says. "But tell me, why  does dey put garlic in a leg of mutton?"  "Because do sheep hasn't de sense to  put gax-lic hi his own leg," she says. "But  yon has de bad temper dis morning,  Oheems. Come wit me to de city, and wo  will dine at de restaurant of de husband  of faeii, Julie. It will be my treat, for  Julio is do dame du comptoir, and she  charges me netting for dinner, so delicieux  is it for her to have de langwndge spoke  to her polite."    c  And dat's no dream, neider.   Julie used  to bo a lady's maid, and she's so tickled to  havo Duchess come to de restaurant, and,  give her'de news of do swell set, dat dey  never asks us for de price���-and dat's why  de dinner at .Tulics' is Duchess' favorite  treat.  Wo eats at Jaques���dat's Julie's hubby  ���between meal times, so dat dey cau eat  wit us; and de waiters dine wit us, too.  It's den dat Duchess tells Julie to talk of  do swift set, dat we hears at oiu* place;  and de tings dat she tells must be warm  propositions, for Julie "Don Dieus!" aud  humps her eyebrows - like she was only  two -jumps ahead of a lit. De waiters  don't understand, for dey comes from a  kiud of Hoboken of France where some  sort of French yiddish is spoke, aud can't  cop dc real Paris rrtifle dat Dutchess  spouts.

John Small-wood  Ward Street MERCHANT TAILOR  dese backwoods Frcnchies no good to hoar  de whole story.  Jaques gives each of de waiters a hot of  claret ror dinner; but dat day one of dem  wtis docked his red wino and made to  drink tea, because he'd broke so many  dishes; aud de poor chap cried so much  over his hard luck dat ho mado de tea  salty.    Den he said it wasn't so bad.  But dat wasn't all I was going to tell  yon: only sometimes I get wondering so  hard why nil folks isn't; like Americans  dat I litis to sing a song about it���or have  ti tit. I was saying tint to Mr. Paul do  odder day, wheu we was hying to see  would his sloop sail as well on her rail as  ou her keel, "Yes, Gimmes," ho says, '*de  American people couldn't do a wrong act  if dey tried. , Dey is a generous, just, patriotic aud grateful people; and dey will  not be represented iu high office by a man  who forgets to show his gensrosity and  gratitude and justice, instead of meanness, ingratitude, unfairness in till his  acts. At - de club, de odder day, I was  talking dis over wit general Miles, and he  says���"  Just den a squall hits us, and mc and  Mr. Paul had to swim ashore, so I never  heard what tie general said. It don't cut  no ice, anyway, for Mr. Paul, when he  starts out wid' a lot of dude langwudge  like dose woids, is mostly training for a  match wit Whiskers.  As I was saying, dat wasn't what I  was goiug to tell you about. Remember  de job dat Duchess puts up to mako Duch-  ess'get togedder wit Wiley Widdy? Well,  when Whiskers seen dat derc was no more  tresspassing on de grass, he got foul ol his  shy-streak again, and him and widdy wtis  so far apart dat he couldn't see her. Dat  makes Duchess so mad dat she could  scream, fox- she is bound to get Whiskers  located in his own fireside, so dat Miss  Fa time can be made to take trips to Paris,  and odder necks of woods where Luchess  wants'to;go. and where Miss Fannie  won't go so long*-a,5,.fe\pa. has no home of  his own.     y;- '   "*-*'--���.���.   , .;  I don't make it my business to'fuss'.ivit^  tings like dose, for I'm satisfied wit me  job as it lays; all de same I wouldn't give  odds dat Miss Fannie would put/up a-yell.  if Whiskers had a shack*:to run all by.  himself, and didn't have so-much; time to  run hers. Mr. Paul doesn't'"say uottiug.  He's a wise guy. Mr. Paul is, and so long  as Whiskers stands half thc price of running our places, dat leaves Mr. Paul more  of his own long green to trim away on  yachts and tings dat boius money like a  tree-call lire alsrm. But just de same, if  Whiskers has a latch-yey on a different  block from us I^can't see Mi'. Paul putting  his logout of joint kicking about it. But  it ain't a man-servant's graft to fuss wid  dat part of de game. It's different wit  women-soinauts. If Duchess didn't have  a hand in running tings I tink she'd give  up woik and live on do tips she's been  touching me for till dese years. I was  asking "her about de boodle she had  bauked. "What's de use of money except  to spend it?" I says to her.  "De woist use you can put mouey to is  to spend it, mon ami. If you speud it you  is no better off dan dose foolish poisons  dtit don't save,it. Money is no good if  you don't have it, is it? If it is only good  to spe-ucl, why take de trouble to get it?  No, Master Oheems, if you have money  you have self-respect���do only ting dat  you can buy wit mouey, and at de same  time not speud de money. Dere should be  ti law dat man should make all de money  lie can���and give it till to his wife. Dat's  de only wny'ho can buy happiness."  I was a foolish fellow to come to a- clinch  wit Duchess on dat proposition; for no  matter how good a argument I put up,  Duchess gets de decision, and de poisso;  she being referee and stakeholder, both.  But I was going to tell you about Willy  Widdy. She's not de kind of a player  dat sits on de club house verandy waiting  for an easy mark to go around de links  wit her. If de one she wants won't play,  she'll bo in a game if it's only a lonesome���dough foursomes come her way  swifter dan any odder. So when Whiskers got shy, Widdy wtis as gaily-gaily as  any goil in de county. Duchess tried her  best to get Miss Fannie to drag Whiskers  over to Widdy's cottage, so dat he could  see what a push wns dere at Widdy's  lunches aud teas, and dat she wtisn^tson^  TciIW(rtoabe^rw^ site  wanted to be.   But Whiskers ducked.  "It is of de agravate!" says Duchess.  "It is tin. if Whiskaire sec Madam Harding iu company wit anodder, den he is of  de" sentiment urgent. But if he will not  ga whore he see dat many men admire  her, what can one do?" _  "One can guess again," I says. "Let  your betters alone, and fix it wid Housekeeper to leave Maggie have dis evening  off, for me frien de barkeep is coming  down dis evening, aud we'll take a stroll  uii de pike wit him and Maggie.*'  Duchess never said a woid in answer to  dat, and �� had a right to be leary: for  when a woman won't talk, even when  slie has a cue, it's time for a man to get  his guard up and limber his legs for a  quick side-step. Me Irion conies down by  de early evening train, and conchy lends  mo do" station -wngon to fetch him; de  foi Its being at dinner and not seeing mo  make de sneak wit de wagon. When we  was in de housekeeper's- room, having a  bite, and a mug of dc butler's ale to wash  de cinder's out of me frieu's treat, Duchess chases mo off, and den it was she puts  up her job. Widdy liad been giving Duchess a lot of duds, and p'chec! if sho didn't  rig Maggie up in cm till she was a dead  ringer for Widdy���only dat Maggie in  one of dose now straiglit-np-aiid-down  corsets, was asking wouldn't she break  like a lamp chimney if she sat down! Me  frien was looking like ready money, too;  for his lid and blanket would pass him tit  a hundred yards for a broker on de right-  side of de market.  "Take mo out of dis corset, Duchess  dear," Maggie was saying. "For de love  of heaven! take me uut before I die. I  feel like I was boarded up���like I was  boxed up for de expressman to take  away."  "Vons etes tres charmantc!" say Duchess, putting ou de poor goil a wrap Widdy  nsed to wear. "Don't hold yon skirt like  a mouse was chasing you. Look, hold it  like dis," and she shows Maggie how to  hold her skirt' like she was going to wrap  herself up in it if dere was enough of it.  "What's doing?'" I says when I sees  dese tings.  "It's ti play," says'Duchess.  "Who's tube played?"  "Gome wit tne and say not ting," Duchess says, and de four of us chases out to  do road by do lane.   Den Duchess and me  macy of Women  goes over to de odder side of de road, and  me frien and Maggie waltzes along by  deirsclvos, aud, say, dey was so like Widdy  sind some swell Johnnie, (hit I'd yelled,  only Duchess punched uie.  It was near dark when whiskers ciuie  out from dinner, and starts out for a stroll  to de yacht club house to thrash out de  cup races once more. As soon as he cops  Maggie and me frien, he starts like he  starts liko he was going to cress de road,  and den he seems to tink dat wouldn't do,  and keeps on; aud when he passes (hem  lie hists his lid; me frien hists his, and  dat sassy Bowery goil, Maggie, sweeps a  bow dat makes her look .more like Widdy  dan de close did. Whiskers.went on his  way, and de couple makes a hurry sneak  wit us back to de liouse, where Maggie  gets out of her swell rags aud into her  own close; and den de four of us starts off  up de pike. Pretty soon butler runs us  down, and asks me didn't I know dttt I  was due at de house, for dere was to be  bridge, and me being second man, it was  up to me to be on call if Mr. Paul would  want a small bottle.  Say, before I gets a ring to go to de  'room where de folks was, Miss Fannie  sends for me on de quiet, aud she says,  "Ohames, where is Hortense?"  "Walking up de road wit butler, Maggie aud a frien of mine," I says. "Shall  I chase after her, Miss Fannie?"  Miss Fannie taut a while, and den she  says, "How is Hyrtenso dressed?"  "Just ns she was when she dressed you  for dinner."  "And Maggie?"  "Same as in de house, only wit her cap  off," I says.  But I never could fool Miss Fannie.  She smiles a little, and den she says,  "Ohames, what mischief has Hortense  been up to? Mrs. Harding is here, and  when papa came back from de club he  spoke of having seen Mrs. Harding. I  kuow dat he did uot, but Mrs. Harding  did not say he did not. I see by your  face,������ Ohames, dat you kuow of some mischief dat/wilLexplaiii, and you must tell���  ^'il'nbt'becrossywith Hortense."  f 'u-vS__coiild con Miss Fannie if I tried,  so gives herTre-Slpie dat'was;played, and  she didn'tputup no"n^*^at^at.y.I>vas|  wondering what was doing'^wajiefolks/iir-  de library,..so when I was, beUeaTf-.v-'-O;  fetch de proof 'ifor--Mr. Paul'dat.de cellar  wasn't  run   dry, I  rubbers  de   layout.  Whiskers was playing up to Widdyylik-..,  she was a six per cent stock shilling.helbw'  par,  and he was afraid if he didn't bid.,  quick dere would be none of it left in de  market.   Widdy's   cart  was   dere,   and  when I called it for her, I waltzes down  to de gate, and as she drives trough she  stops and says; "Miss Fannie was telling  me dat your wife can dress Maggie to  look like odder folks."  . "Duchess is no farmer, ma'am," I says.  "She is a very bold maid," says Widdy,  "but I ting she deserves dis, what I just  wins at bridge," and she passed me out a  long green, aud p'chec! it was a liver.  Well, I goes to de station wit me frien  de barkeep, and I splits dat fiver at de  little drum near de station, and we says,  "Here's to you!" more dan once.  When I moots np wit Duchess, she says,  "Oheems, you has been drinking. Where  did you get de price?"  "It didn't need no price," I says, "it  was a tin roof."  "I tin roof! What kind of a drink is a  tin roof?"  "It's on de house," says I, and Duchess  is wondering yet.  Dat's de foist time in mo life I ever  sunk a tip on Duchess, and de best ting  about it is dat it was her graft, at dat. If  she ever finds out dat Widely passed dat  green to me, to pass along to me���to do  Nor. Pole for me!  And Duchess earned de stake, too; for.  from do looks of tings down our way,  Whiskers will soon tell me to pack bis  trunk for a wedding journey; and when  de parson has willed half of Whiskers' income to Widdy, de credit of de job will  belong as much to Duchess, as to Widdy's  eyes.       ���   The Voters' Lists.
