Mrs. Mary Ellen
Smith and H. F.
Kergin Address
What was probably the most
enthusiastic political meeting held
at Alice Ann during the present
campaign, was held on Saturday
evening, when Mrs. Ellen Smith,
M. L, A., and H. F, Kergin, M. L.
A,, addressed a large audience in
the interests of tho liberal party,
at the Alice Arm Coliseum.
Both speakers were listened to
with rapt attention. Mr. Kergin's
address was principally taken up
by refuting statements made by
Hon. H. H. Stevens, during his
speech here a short time ago.
His criticisms were extremely fair,
and he showed his audience that
a large number of Mr. Steven's
statements were misleading.
Mrs. Smith proved to be a
finished orator, with a sense of
humor, and quick at repartee.
She was heckled various times,- but
this did not excite the lady in the
least. She proved to be the
j possesser of a fund of imformation
regarding federal affairs, and she
has a happy manner of imparting
information when on a public
Mr. W. B. Bower was chairman
of the meeting. He referred to
the many Acts of Parliament that
had been sponsored by Mrs. Smith
regarding the welfare of the
women and children, and assured
those present that her presence in
Parliament at Victoria was an asset to the province.
Mr. H. F. Kergin was the first
speaker, and he said that in his
opinion Mr. Stork was the proper
man for this district to support.
He had had four year's experience.
He had worked hard for the
Skeena riding and the only critir
cism he had received from his
opponents was that he had secured
i grain elevator for Prince Rupert.
He said Mr. Stork had fought for
shis elevator for several years, and
tad brought the advantages of a
Prince Rupert elevator to the
uithorities at Edmotnon, as well
!is carrying on the fight at Ottawa.
He said he was pleased Hon. H.
II.  Stevens had visited this dis-
i-riot, and saw for himself the developing of our resources, but he
jould not agree with the   state-
faents made by that gentleman in
fas speeches at Anyox and Alice
bm>   Mr. Stevens had said that
fie Canadian steel industry   had
'eolined 50 per oent, during the
;*st twelve years, but he did not
;ate that eight of those deolining
(pars was under a conservative
'wernmeut, at whioh time tlie in-
istry was enjoying a high tariff.
Jr. Kergin also took exception to
Jr. Steven's statement in regard
Sour dead mining camps, and he
!id that everyone knew the
ineral production of the provide was increasing each year.

Christ Church Harvest
Festival Was Impressive
The Annual Harvest Festival
held on Sunday, was one of the
greatest sncoesses on reooi-d. The
Services were as follows: Celebration of the Holy Enoharisfc, 8 p.m.
Sunday School and Confirmation
Itistuction at 10 a.m. Matins and
and Sermon at 11 o'olook, and
Evensong at 7.45 p.m.
The evening Servioe was fully
choral, The Harvest hymns were
well and heartily sung.
Mi1. W. Grant rendered a very
fine solo on the violin, ably aocompanied by the organist, Mrs. F.
The decorations were very
beautiful and most appropriate.
The congregations were large,
especially at the Evening Service.
The collections, which were more
than anticipated, are to be given
towards the reduction of the debt
which still hangs over the Churoh.
The hearty thanks and appreciation of the congregation are due to
Mrs. Cameron, Mrs. Henderson,
Mrs. Jago, Mrs. Macknight and
Mrs. Stevens for their energy and
skill in adorning the Church for
the Festival; also to Mr. L. Champion, Mr. Kergin, Mr. Jago, Capt.
Cameron, Mr. and Mrs. C. King,
Mr. 0. ,.(^ane for their generosity
and kindness in the provision of
fruit, flowers and vegetables.
The Sermon by the rector, Rev.
J. S. Brayfield were, most appropriate and eloquent.
Mrs Brayfield added greatly to

the necessary details of the work.

was $41,000,000. and a total of
$60,000,000 will be reached before
the close of the year, while last
year our production was $48,704,-
604. These figures didn't show
that the mining industry was dying.
Mr. Stevens, he said, made a big
howl about so many Canadians
leaving for the U. 8. A-, but he
[.didn't say how many had returned.
He also didn't say that in 1917
under the Borden government
117,000 Canadians went to that
country, and during the whole
time Borden was premier 752,000
crossed the border. The government at that time placed the
blame to business depression, and
not the tariff as they are now doing.
Tiie conservatives, he said, are
seeking to make the people of
Canada believe that the liberals
are to blame for all their ills, aud
he asked his audience to remember
that when the consevatives went
out of power in 1921 the national
debt was $2,422,000,000. This
large amount was not due entirely
to the war for it was shown that
the conservatives had increased
the national debt $170,000,000
after the olose of hostilities.

The development tunnel on the
La Rose property has been completed by the contractors, Messrs.
Neil Forbes, F. Martinson, J. Garrett, and B. Burtlesom This tunnel has been driven a distance of
420 feet. Hand drilling was used,
and it was completed in 90 days.
The high grade silver ore vein
whioh is located at the bottom of
the shaft was the objective, but so
far it has not been located underground. An ore vein, however,
was encountered at a distance of
340 feet from the portal of the
tunnel, and this vein is being
followed. If the high grade is not
encountered in this crosscut, the
tunnel will be extended, and a
raise driven, as it is the intention
of the company to looate this high
grade ore underground. The shaft
has been recently deepened and
shows four feet of ore. This ore is
among the highest grade found in
the Alioe Arm district, and has
given values of over 1400 ozs. silver per ton, so that it will be realized that as soon as this ore is encountered, the money spent on development will be speedily repaid,
and a handsome profit should be
available to the investors in the
Mine Club Puts Over

Exceptionally fine music was

who received quite an ovation by

dance hits of the evening would be
difficult; but "My Hong Kong

Swiss," were probably the winners. The last named being demanded no less than seven times.
An excellent supper was served at
which nearly 120 couples sat down
to the tables. Thanks are due to
ladies of the Mine for donating
cakes. As usual an army of the

Warning to Electors
The Liberal Party will not stop at anything to discredit
Nickerson. Last Saturday, the Prince Rupert Daily News
charged, Robert Forke with refusing to endorse Mr.
Nickerson. The. following telegram from Forke to Nickerson, dated Pipestone, Manitoba, September 18th. is sufficient
reply to the usual Liberal propaganda: The telegram commenced as follows.
"Regret delay.   If nominated on Progressive
platform will be satisfactory."
Development Prove
Matilda Has Good
Ore and Lots
Of It
The season's programme of development work on the Matilda
property, by the Kitsault River
Mining and Development Co. was
completed this week, .and from
conservative sources it is learned
that'a considerable amount of good
ore has been developed.
The Matilda ore vein has received the major, portion of the work.
This vein has been drifted on for a
distance  of  25  feet.      The  full
width of the ore is about 24 feet,
but the best ore is found in a width
of five feet and is composed of a
high grade galena, the chief minerals of which are lead and zinc, it
also carries copper and gold values.
This vein has been stripped on  the
surface for a distance of 600 feet
and five open cuts have been made,
proving that the ore extends at
least that distance.     Samples of
ore from this vein have given  returns of 9 per cent, lead and  12
per cent. zinc.
Work was also done on a distinct
ore body, whioh is situated on the
north end of the property. This
vein had previously been drifted on
for a distance of 35 feet, and this
year it was orossout, showing it to
be 5 feet wide, and an extremel/
good grade of ore, composed chiefly
of argentite silver, also carrying
considerable grey copper and zinc.
Ore samples from this vein whioh
were brought down show considerable argentite silver and should
carry high values.
Another ore vein intersecting
this one, was cut through when
the tunnel was started. It is composed of the same character of ore,
but lias not yet been developed.
Development work next year
will be done mainly on the last
mentioned ore bodies, where the
chief mineral is argentite silver.
A lower tunnel will be driven,
which will cut this vein at a depth
of 65 feet and the intersecting one
at a depth of 40 feet.
A large number of samples were
brought down and these will be
sent out for assaying and analysing.
They contain some fine specimens
of ore and values should run high.
Development work has been
carried on under the supervision of
O. Flint, who is a practical mining
man of wide experience. Another
season of development work will
undoubtedly considerably enhance
the value of the property and put
into a position that will prove attractive to' big companies who are
looking for partly developed mines.

Address Electors
Next   Thursday   will    decide
whether the Liberal   party   will
still carry on their duties at Ottawa
or whether the people of Canada
desire a change, and decide to
give  the    Conservatives   another
trial.    The present campaign has
been fought more strenuously than
usual by both parties.    This district has been favored by leading
speakers from both sides.   Their
addresses have been published in
the Herald, in order  to  acquaint
those who were unable to attend
the meetings of what transpired.
Every elector has heard the arguments put forth by both parties.
Both parties claim that their own
policy will cure all our ills and
bring increased prosperity.    The
Conservatives state that   a   high
tariff is necessary if we are to increase our prosperity.    This tariff
cry will  doubtless gain them   a
number of seats in   the   manufacturing centres of the east, but
it is problematic whether  a high
tariff will appeal to the people o!
the country west of the great lakes,
who, when buying goods, whether
it is  mining,  milling, logging and
farming machinery, clothes,  hats,
shoes, or cabbages, desire to  buy
as   cheaply   as   possible.     The
Liberal party are in favor of a
moderate tariff,   a   reduction   of
western freight   rates,   and   the
fostering of the development of our
resources by making it possible for
farmers,  mining  companies    and
others   to   buy   their   necessary
machinery as cheap as   possible
without stifling our home industries
to death.    The chief obstacle to
be   removed    before    permanent
prosperity is attained  is   in our
opinion a big reduction in taxation.
If the next government, who goes
into office on the 29th. fails to remove this obstacle,  they  will be
ousted at the next election just as
sure as night follows day.
During the present political
campaign, we have published as
fully as possible, reports of speeches
made by the speakers of both
parties and have shown no favorites in regard to reporting speeches.
The reason any weekly newspaper
is published is to give publicity to
the happenings of the district in
which it is published. We consider political speeches as first-
class news and we have given
them all the publicity possible.

Mr. Kergin drew a comparison of
the operating costs of the government, and stated that under the
Meighen administration the cost
per capita was $51.77, while under
Mackenzie King it was $37.54.
Railway affairs wore next dealt
with by the speaker, aud he showed that the financial standing of
the Canadian National lines had
steadily improved under the liberal
government. In 1921 under the
Meighen government the railways
had a loss of '$11,000,000 on oper-
uting expenses. In 1922 under
Mackenzie King a surplus of $2,-
886,000 was shown. In 1923 the
surplus was over $20,000,000, and
in 1924, when a freight rate cut
was made, it was $17,244,000.
lie Tory cry, the speaker sail,
is to raise the tariff and hand over
the 'country to the big manu-
'actnrers. Make the mining companies pay more for their machinery, and force them to pay a duty
on all metals exported is their idea
of promoting prosperity. He said
that if the Granby Co. was forced
to pay one cent per pound-ou their
export copper, it would probably
cause a shutdown of the plant.
Mrs. Smith was the next
speaker, and she gave a lengthy
address. She stated that it was
her first visit to the district, although she had heard so much regarding this wonderful country
from H. F. Kergin, who never
failed to sing its praise.
In stating the cause for her entrance into politics she said that
the public of Vancouver had demanded that she offer herself as a
candidate for the Provincial Legislature in order to protect the
women and children. She had received her share of criticism, but
the only people who don't get
criticized she said are those that
don't do anything, or the dead.
She said Mr. Stork was the best
man to represent this riding. She
had attended three of the four sessions of the Mackenzie government
at Ottawa, and assured her hearers that Fred Stork was working
for the interests of the Skeena riding in and out of the House. He
had to light for the Prince Rupert
elevator. Elevators are not
thrown at you she said, they have
to be fought for. And why
should'nt Prince Rupert have an
elevator she questioned.
In talking on emigration she
said that in 1896 hundreds of
thousands of Canadians were
Hocking to the United ' States.
They were called the lean years,
and Laurier was put into power to
bring prosperity. Canada has not
done herself any good since she
turned down reciprocity with the
United States in 1911 said the
speaker. The conservatives had
four years in the saddle previous to
the war and not one good thing
did they do.
Mi's. Smith reviewed the record
of the government during the war,
and said that the war had piled up
a huge debt, and asked what are
we going to do about it. It's got
to be paid, and we are the ones
who have to pay. The war slogan

The war veterans had their problems on their return she said.
What did they get? questioned one
of the audience. They didn't get
the same consideration from the
conservative government on their
return as they did on their departure, she retorted. It was
the provincial governments who
had to bear the brunt of looking
after the welfare of the veterans,
and at the election of 1921 the
hoys voted Mackenzie King into
power in order to obtain justice.
In the election of 1921, six provinces did not return a single conservative. They were Alberta,
Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec,
Nova Scotia, aud Prinoe Edward
In reveiwing the work accomplished by Mackenzie King since
being in office, she said he had reduced the cost of farming implements, and consequently more
I were sold. He had reduced the
Income Tax by $2,000,000. Reduced cost on mining and milling
machinery. Reduced the national
debt by nearly $40,000,000 and had
reduced the Civil Service staff to a
minimum. He was also out to
tight the Atlantic shipping combine, whose charges for shipping
'.three.carloads of cattle from Montreal to Glasgow was $2,250.
I These cattle were sent by the
Alberta government for exhibition
| purposes. During his term of
"ffice, Mackenzie King had also
made trade treaties with several
other countries, so that we can
send our goods to them and their's
to us.
In reviewing the railway freight
question    she    said    that    when
British Columbia joined confederation, she was promised equal terms
with the east, but we hadn.t got it.
Richard McBride won two elections
in a better terms cry, but didiht
lo anything.     It took good   old
fohn Oliver, she said,  to actively
.ake up the question and send a
nan to Ottawa to tight for equal-
nation, when after all these years
ve could uot obtain justice.   The
donied interests of the east  are

Through the efforts of the Minister of Lands another new market
has been found for British Columbia lumber, This is the state railway construction and maintenance
service on the Island of Mauritius.
Hitherto only European woods
have been used but when Hon. Mr.
Pattullo learned that the government railways were in the market
for a cargo of timber, he cabled
the general manager stating the
qualities of Douglas fir and the excellent results obtained from its
use on the British, Indian and
Egyptian lines. The outcome is
that the first shipment of Douglas
fir ever made to Mauritius is now
being loaded at B. C. ports.

Prince Bupert, B. C.
October 18th., 1925
To The Elbctobs of Skeena Electoral District:—
You will be given the opportunity of choosing your repi'esentative in the Dominion house for
Skeena Electoral District on October 29th, I am asking for your support as a Progressive Candidate. The Progressive Party is composed of Western members whose first interests are in the West.
Too long the more numerous voices of the East, both Liberal and Conservative, have been heard at
great sacrifice to the interests of the West. High protection, discrimination in favor of Eastern
rates and Eastern routes have been the result. Unfortunately for the West, during the past two decades, our representatives have been uniformly good party men whose principles were easily subdued
by the clever politicians of the East.
Our mining, lumbering, fisheries, natural harbors and splendid shipping facilities remain dormant.
The possibilities of mining iu B. C. are said to far surpass Northern Ontario and approach closely to
that of the Rand. British Columhia is looked upon as the lumber warehouse of the Empire, yet the
British Government continue to place their big orders in the United States.
As a candidate I stand four square for the development of Skeena distriot; for improved railway service, improved coastal servioe, and for increased publicity by the Canadian National Railways
of the "Inside Passage" and the Portland Canal as points of interests to the tourists as well as Jasper
Park, Vanoouver and Alaska, as prevails entirely in all their past advertising. We must have such
development as will at least give adequate employment to all onr present population.
I am opposed to the loose administration of our Oriental immigration laws and will advocate
an absolute closing of the lid against this class of immigrant. I stand for the principles of the Progressive Party in its entirety, that Canada should first of all be made a good place for Canadians to
live in before any immigrants are invited. Immigration largely moans unfair competition with our
own Canadian workman who is on a higher plane of living.
I stand first of all for the best interests of the West and secondly for Canada as a whole. And
when sitting in parliament I will not be handicapped by an overwhelming eastern majority in the
Progressive Party.   I respectively "solicit your vote and influence in the best interests of the West.

Put your trust in men who believe in the West's future —men
who in Canada's darkest hour held out hope—men who believed
in developing the West.
Under almost insurmountable
difficulties, Canada faces the world
today on the wave of industrial prosperity. She has met every debt on its
due date to her foreign creditors—
her dollar is the highest in the world.
And the West flourishes. In the last
four years, since Mackenzie King
took the helm at Ottawa, the West's
port, Vancouver, has shown greater
industrial development than in all
her previous history.
This in the face of the cries of ruination and foreclosure from Meighen
and Stevens in 1921. This in the face
of the repudiation of Mr. Meighen
by Canada's strongest Conservative,
journal, which styled his outlook at
that time, "the whisper of death."
And more than ever in the history of
the West does the West need friends
at Ottawa. Men who will stand in
the councils of the nation afraid of
no moneyed interests, no combines,
no section of their party or rival
city of the Dominion:
Such men are the Liberal Candidates. They know they will have the
support of the leader of Canada's
next Government, the Rt. Hon. W. L.
Mackenzie King. For he has said
throughout the country that there
must be justice for every section.
The Liberal Candidates are pledged
to secure absolute equalization of
freights for the West. If it is necessary to make this a national issue in
the House of Commons at Ottawa,
they will do it.
G. G. McGeer, K.C., Liberal Candidate for Vancouver Centre, said
"There is one Court where we can
secure lasting and final justice, and
that is the GREAT COURT OF,
PUBLIC OPINION, the Parliament
of Canada."
Vote Liberal, and you will bring
about Western development and
prosperity for all,
"Our Tariff must
have due regard
for all parts of the
country in its present stage of development" said
Mackenzie King
The Liberal tariff
is a tariff prim-
arily imposed for
revenue. This
tariff, which is a
tax, should be as
light as possible
on the people.
Premier King
says, ^Especially
do we believe that
the instruments of
production essential to the development of our basic
industries and the
necessaries of life
should be taxed
as lightly as possible,"

Anyox Liberal Meeting
Crowded to Doors
When Mrs. Mary' Ellen Smith,
M. L. A., and H. P. Kergin, M. L.
A., addressed the mooting at the
Recreation Hall, Anyox, on Friday evening, last week, they faced
one of the largest audiences in the
history of the camp. The big hall
was crowded to capacity and a
very enthusiastic spirit prevailed.
■ R. H. Manzer was chairman of
the meeting, and he opened it hy
saying that as far as his remarks
were concerned, being a good
liberal he would be as conservative
as possible. He requested those
present to give the speakers every
possible attention, whatever their
views under discussion may be.
H. F. Kergin was the first
speaker, and was followed by Mrs.
Smith, who spoke for one hour
and twenty minutes. Both
speakers addressed meetings at
Alice Arm on Saturday evening, a
report of which we have published
this week.
Returns   From   Stewart
Mr, and Mrs. H. F. Kergin,
who accompanied Mrs. Mary Ellen
Smith from Alice Arm to Stewart
last Saturday, returned on Thurs
day via Prince Rupert. Mr.
Kergin says Stewart is 0. K. from
the Liberal standpoint. Two
meetings were held there, one at
Stewart and the other at the
Premier Mine. At both meetings
the Halls were jammed to the
doors, and Mrs. Smith received a
great reception.
Leaves for California
Al. Miner, who is interested in
the Toric mine and the Silver
Hoard property, left Alice Arm on
