In this rid- Ing prohibition has been defeated by 175 majority, but the correct figures as to the suffrage vote are still un- available, though it is known that is was carried by a small majority. In giving out the result of the vote here in Fernie, an error was made in regard to tho vote of J. A. McDonald, Socialist. There were three divisions in the polling booth and only the vote in one of these was given out at the time the list was being made. The vote in the other two added to tlie 42 previously reported gives Mr. McDon- ald 102 votes in Fernie instead of 42 as reported before. The two missing precincts, Gateway and Fruitlimns, have made no differ- ences in the total majority for Fisher over Uphill. Gateway gave Fisher 3, Uphill 11, and Fruitlands gave Fisher 0 and Uphill G. The Liberals were jubilant last night and when the final result in the j riding was known, scores of Mr. Fish- ier's friends carried him out into the 'stront. and placing him in an automo- bile, they marched through the streets, giving vent to their happiness in long and continued cheering. Mr. Fisher, though feeling the effects of a long and most arduous campaign, spoke feelingly to his throng of admiring friends, thanking -them for their mag- nificent fight for-his election. He es- pecially wished to thank his support- ers in Fernie, Coal -Creek and Michel for placing him at the head of the poll u eacli place. He took occasion to E The first car of foreign prunes ever cai'B of Amerjcari fruit which passed through Lethbridge.

That's the word that is being passed round today. Of course there is go- ing to be some cutting to do in the case of late fields and on large farms where harvesting cannot be complet- ed in ten days. But even in the latter cases there will bo little grain left standing by Monday evening. Wheat along the Foremost branch is all cut, said a local railway official this morning. And the fields show a. magnificent stand waiting for the threshing machines. "Talk, he said. "I have seen some fine crops this year, but I never saw a finer stretch in every direction than is to be seen at Etzikom. North, south; .east and west, all that is ito be seen is Held after Held of stooks. It. is magnificent." O. T. Lathrop is in today from his farm at Grassy Lake, and his esti- mate is 80 per cent, cut along .that branch. From the Cardston district come reports that the middle'of next week will see cutting pretty .well finished. Everything is cut north of, the river, 'along the Rethuv branch, [and .Monday will see the finish.along the Carmangay. branch. I Only an occasional threshing rig is {at work as yet, but threshing" will start in earnest on Monday-and will be general the middle ot next week. By next Saturday a very fair i estimate' of 'the average yield should i be obtainable and Mrs. H. Scott, were two readings from Jliss Campbell and Miss Mc- Leay. Mrs. Fred King, of Sunflower Farm, Coaldale road, entertained her Sun- day school class of young men at her home last evening. The boys left Westminster chiiijc'h at 7.30, being driven to the farm by Mr. Heden- strome. A most enjoyable evening was spent playing old fashioned games, after which: a most sumptuous supper was served in which a "corn feed" played a part. The boys arrived home about midnight. -The Prisoners of> War Fund com- mittee packed the regular fortnightly parcels yesterday. They desire to gratefully acknowledge groceries from Mrs. N. W.

He fully omlm'sci! the stand taken by his leader. Mr. HrewHter. upon the land (juestiou and tlie financial policy he proposed to follow. Ho also fully endorsed tho stand of Mr. Brewster whun lie said that if returned to pinv- or he would make It part of hln policy to compel Mr. Bowser and bis govern- ment to account for the illegal method they had pursued in dealing with rail- ways, lands, and in their course in the so-called plugging charges last sprlnc. By again returning Mr. M. A. Mac- Donald at the head of the poll in Van- couver along with every Liberal candi- date iu that city with overwhelming majorities, tlie people who knew most about those charges have passed a most effectual verdict which can not be explained away by even the ex- ports at explaining. Victoria, too, where the investiga- tion wus carried on has again spok- en so emphatically that there is no longer an excuse for tho perpetrators of that scandal, and they should be brought to book for such methods. j Mr. Fisher was .cheered to tho echo and at a late hour, after parading the streets with improvised torch light processions the crowd disbursed, and today the town is as quiet as after a Sunday school picnic. The women of the town are happy over the fnct that whether the refer- endum vote on equal suffrage carries or not, they have the assurance of Mr. Brewster, that it elected, one of the first bills that his government will in- troduce in the legislature will be one to give women the legal right, which he claims they have by natural right, to vote upon all questions. If prohibition has not carried this time, they say they will see to it does next time, which will be as soon as such an election can be brought about. NELSON FOR PROHIBITION Nelson, B.
