Being interviewed nt Ottawa
recently, regarding various
matters pertaining to the provincial political situation Senator Teinplenian gives his views
as followsi—
. It was suggested to the senator that probably tlio'lieuteviaiit-
governor bad intimated to Premier McBride the propriety oi:
making an earlier appeal to the
electorate than he had intended,
but on tbis point tbe senator
could not express an opinion,
"Possibly," be said, "thereniay
bu something in that, but 1
doubt it. I am rather inclined
to think Mr. McBride is iniin-
oeuvering to obtain an advantage. He made a tour of tlie
province, and found out, very
likely, tlmt bis cause is steadily
liming ground, lf he waited another month, he very probably
reasons, his party will bo overwhelmed] and so be bus determined to try and snatch a victory liefore his opponents are
ready. Hut it will not succeed.
The Liberals may not be ready
for the contest, but neither are
their opponents, and on that
score tliere. is no advantage on
either side.
Reminded that the Liberals
were leadorless, and reported to
be divided, while all the inllu
ence of patromigij at their back,
and hence the conditions at this
distance would seem to lie in
favor of the latter. Senator
Templenmn replied that conditions could not be accurately
ganged at such long range.
■It is," he said, "British Columbia's misfortune to Iw misjudged in nioi"i ways than one.
The Conservatives have the
position, but the Liberals have
the better cause and the numbers* They have only to strand
together to control the situation.
Because there is no ollicially
proclaimed leader of the Liberals timid friends may fear that
lbe party is thereby at a disadvantage, while the Conservatives would not hositate to
point to that fact, as an evidence of weakness. fn my
opinion a united party with a
leader is infinitely stronger than
a disunited party with a leader.
Sir John Thompson was at ono
time the Conservative premier
of Nova Scotia. On one occasion
he appealed to the people, and
wa.'i opposed by the Liberals,
who had no leader. The Liberals wero victorious and subsequently, from among the representatives they then returned,
there was selected one of the
most successful provincial premiers who has ever been in
public life in Canada, the lion,
W.8. Fielding, at present finance
minister of the Dominion. What
was done in Nova Scotia will be
repeated in British Colunihia.
There may not be a Fielding
among our candidates, it is true,
but it is equally true that the
gentleman who leads our opponents is far from being a Sir
John Thompson. After the
elections the Liberals can select
from among their number, as
tbe Nova Scotia Liberals did,
one who as premier will give to
tlie province stable and honest
government, whicli is above
everything else the one thing
that it is most in need of."
"The excellent character and
high standing of the Liberal
candidates thus far placed in
nomination is nn indication of
greater interest in public affairs j
by our hist citizens than ever,
before, The personnel of tin?
two tickets will no doubt have |
much to do with the result, for!
our people, or many of tliemy]
will continue to be influenced i
by tbo personality of tbe rival |
candidates. Tt will take tbem!
some time to become 'imbued |
with the roal party instinct.
"Of course there is no use disguising tlie fact that the Liber-1
ids have had in tlie past divisions in their ranks, just as their
opponents have today. But
they bave not been divisions
arising out of disagreements in
respect to any question of policy
or principle. They have been
mostly of a trivial kind and
generally the natural outcome
of the 'no-party' system that lias
prevailed in British Columbia
over since it was given responsible government, lt was impossible that Liberals should be
arrayed against Conservatives
iu the so-called 'no-party' struggles of the past and no friction
result, between party friends.
Both parties in Victoria have
but to recall the last bye-election to admit the truth of this
sttiteniout. But whatever tbe
divisions in the respective
parties, or whatever their
causes, there is now no longer
the semblance of an excuse for
maintaining them. The. Conservatives will come together at
the last moment if they have
not already done so, and even
Col. Prior, ex-premier, may yet
be found championing the cause
of the party's section of whicli
was responsible with the Liberals for hisfxpiilsiou anddown-
full. If the Conservatives can
(ind standing room with tbe
party led by McBride, the Liberals can with greater propriety'
and less sacrifice of pride and
certainly without any sacrifice
of principle, unite under one
banner. Those who decline to
do so will be working almost as
effectively in behalf of the Conservatives as though they actually joined the old gang, thut
for twenty years'has given to
British Columbia the worst
government that any province
iu Canada had ever had.
"There is no split in the Liberal ranks thnt I know of, and
no friction that  may   not  bo
made to disappear.   Tbe loader-
ship question, as agreed to by
the excutive, will be settled immediately after tbe election nnd
in a way satisfactory to all.   It|
is according precedent that, tbo |
representatives     select . thoir I
leader and in voluntarily resign-1
ing tho position and submitting
the selection to the decision of
the representatives to be elected,!
Mr.   Martin   clearly   indicated |
that ho approved  of  the   con-1
stitutional course being followed :
at the outset of party government in British Columbia.   In |
so doing, 1 think Mr. Martin not
only acted wisely but unselfishly
and in the best interests of the
party as a whole.    Mr.   Martin
having thus mude   it  possible
for a united party to go to the
poll to   defeat   the   common
enemy, that is the  only thing
that should concern our political
friends or the public at present.
That is the only thing we have
now to  do.    Afterwards  the
Liberals elected will choose the
leader nnd that lender will lead
a united Liberal party,
"Gro.it things 'wiil be driing
in British Columbia during tbe
next live years. We aro going
to build a great transcontinental railway fn ra the Pacific
to the Atlantic, live hundred
miles of which, costing .f25,0CO,
000 will be in British Columbia.
What that will mean to the
province in   growth   of  ;
population and the development of
its marvellous natural resotirci s
every person who lias resided
in British Columbia since the
COmplol ion (.1' I be ( . 1', J{. (save
Senator McDonald nnd Mr.
Ear!'.') enn fell. .'•, Liberal government, is in oded ai, Victoria
during those live years, The
Conservatives have been bungling projected railway < nter-
priscs king enough, and there,
would be a positive danger in
placing Iheni in a position to
retard or bold up tiie Grand
Trunk I'acilic. Tbe only two
Conservative representatives at
Ottawa, benator McDonald and
Mr. Thos. Karl". M. P. (Senator
Eleid being absent) bave done
all tbey could do to defeat tbat
magnificent enterprise. In tbe
regrettable pni'ti/.an spirit displayed, tbey represented, it is
but reasonable to suppose, the
views of the Conservatives of
British Columbia, chief among
whom are Mr, McBride and his
colleagues. If the people of
British Columbia desire that*
railway to be built, and at a
cost to them of not one dollar,
tbey should see to it tbat. the
nien who oppose its construction
are not placed in a position to
defeat their wishes. There will
be other railway building in
British Columbia during tbe
next year or two, and on the
completion of the (r. T, P., lines
to the north and south, opening
up vast mineral and agricultural
areas now absolutely valueless,
will rapidly follow. What ihe
C. P. K. luis done in developing
the southern fling' of the
province will be duplicated by
the G. T. P. in the center, possibly even to u greater degree
because tiie natural difficulties
to bo surmounted are less while
the natural resources of tho
country are known to be equally as great. This, tben, is not
the time to place ineu iu powei
at Victoria who are ready to
kill a project, calculated to do
so much for British Columbia.
For this reason alone if for no
other (and of course there are
others) the best interests of the
province require that a Liberal
goveriinieiint shall rule British
Columbia after the 3rd day of
October next.
Among the Mines.
The Athelstan mine, Wellington camp, is shipping steadily,
and is gradually increasing the
daily rate, although the ore must
be hauled ou wagons about a
mile.and up bill at that. The
ore is so easily mined, however,
lhat power drills are hardly
necessary, picks and shovels being the chief tools needed. Excellent returns are said to be
received from the shipments,
which all go to the Sunsot smelter at Boundary Falls, the management of which is interested
in tho bond on the property.
Shipments from the .lack Pot,
adjoining the Athelstan, are expected to iie started at an early

And Others  Address a  Large
Audience in McNicol's Hall.
Mr.   Clement Refuted
All The Wild Arguments of The '
What is regarded as the best
Liberal meeting   ever held in
Midway took place last night.
McNicol's hall was crowded to
the doors with an audience, the
greater part of whom were in
sympathy   with    the  Liberal
nominee, J. K. Brown.    R. D.
Kerr occupied the chair and on
the platform were J. R. Brown,
W.H. P. Clement, the Liberal
candidate for the Grand Forks
riding and W. A. Galliher, M. P.
for  the Yale-Cariboo  district.
The meeting was very harmonious, only once was it necessary
forthe chairman to call order
owing to the interruptions of a
few Socialist hoodlums imported
forthepurpose of giving trouble.
R. D. Kerr briefly opened the
meeting, introducing./. R. Brown
the   Liberal candidate for the
Greenwood riding, who followed
in a rousing speech, which although necessarily brief, owing
to an arrangement whereby the
speakers, wore given but thirty
minutes each, dealt with all the
issues  that   are of vital importance tb the welfare of British   Columbia.     Mr.    Brown
opened his speech by a few remarks on the affairs of the ,'pro-
vince as they are at the present
referring to the fact that although British Columbia is one
of the richest of the provinces,
it is the worst off financially of
any of them, a condition that
should not exist and would not
at least for long, if the Liberals
were  returned  to power.   He
pointed out that during the past
four years the provincial de t
has increased five millions of
dollars, which, considering that
the  province   only   contained
about 177,000 people, was startling in thc extreme.
The Lib • : platform was such
as should commend itself to all.
Condi! iuns wore ever changing
and to meet these changed conditions the Liberals met on the
19 and 20 of August last and
draft'i'1 additional clauses, and
it was now on this platform
that he appealed to the people
of this riding.
Redistribution was next
touched upon. Up to a short
time ago this district was but
inadequately represented while
others had more than thoir fair
share of representation, but
session beforo last this injustice
was remedied and now we lmd
the representation we were entitled to.
Ho believed in government
ownership of public utilities.
This hail been tried with marked
success in Germany, Australia
and elsewhere, and there was
no reason why it should not
work here as well. Much was
said against the Intercolonial
railway, and rightly enough,
too, under Conservative man-
« agement, for it had cost the
country over seventy million
dollars, and the interest
amounted to two millions annually, while.-it always showed
u  uoliicit,  but  the,  last three
the form of a surplus, last year
amounting to $13S,000. fl.ot
only had it returned |his surplus but the wages of the employees had been increased $21,-
000 and the freight rates had
been materially decreased. No
one could say anything against
the Grand Trunk Pacific, deal,
the only place it met with
any objections was in tho East,
where they had not boen
touched up by high freight
The giving aWay of land subsidies such as had been done in
the past was bad in principle
jiudworked out worse iii practice.
Heretofore two or three men
would seo a country rich in
mineral resources. They would
go down to Victoria, lobby and
getcertain concessions j reserves
would be put on land by the
government, and then these
men would hawk the charter
jiround the country endeavoring
to dispose of it. Nine out of ten
were unsuccessful iu. finding a
purchaser, which resulted in
:igain and again renowing the
charter and keeping the public
domain out of the hands of the
people who would, if pnrmitted.
take up these same lands. As
an in stanco of this we have only
to look to the present tie up of
rich coal and petroleum lands
in South East Kodter.ny, which
have boen tied up si'nee VM)
Tho same was the case in tht
North Wost until tlio Liberals
declared against it.
Tho immediate construction
of the Coaj-it-Kootenay railway-
was another question that
would command tiie attention
of the Liberals if returned to
power. If tlie former government had done its duty it would
have been built bofore this.
The Conservatives had a
wishy washy plnnk in their
platform doaliug with this
matter but it was very vague.
This road was badly needed ;
there was the agricultural and
mineral wealth of the Simillca-'
meeu valley practically locked
up awaiting the advent or this
Ono great question neglected
in the past -Was the fiscal policy
of tlie province. He was' in
favor of reform. A thorough
adjustment of the taxation of
railways was required. He believed in taxing the railway to
a greater extent and doing
away with the tax for the privi-
ledge of entering upon government lands in search of minerals. Pre-emptors should not be
taxed for their homesteads
while they were performing
settlers' duties. The tax on
wild lands should be increased.
At the present time there were
immense tracts of rich agricultural lands taken up by various
parties at little cost to themselves und that contributed
practically nothing to the government in the form of taxes.
The system must be revised.
Civil service reform was next
dealt with by tho speaker in a
most able manner. He stated
that it cost this province seven
times per head what it cost
Ontario to conduct the civil service department. Of course,
this was a larger province and
more sparcely settled and farther away from the distributing
centres of the East, but thii
comparison was too great. At
Victoria alone $9,000 was being
paid out monthly to maintain
this department. There was no
reason for it costing the government such a large amount.
This department required a
thorough shaking up all over
the. province, which would result in u great saving to the
government. Tho Conservatives do not promise nny reform.
Better terms with tho Dominion government was what both
parties wanted. At the present
time the province was contributing three dollars to the Dominion for every two it, Received in
ruturn. It stood to reason that
if a Liberal government were
elected it would stand a better

at Ottawa,
In referring to Socialism Mr.
Brown very aptly remarked
that it was a subject to talk
over during the long winter
The, speaker closed his address
by a brief reference to the large
majority given by Midway to
Mr. Galliher at his election to
the Doniinion house and an appeal was made to the voters for
their support on election day.
Cheers marked tho conclusion
of the address.
Throughout bis discourse Mr.
Brown was listened to with
great attention by tbe large
audience and it was evident
that there were but few present
who would not support him on
October 3rd.
Mr. .Mills the Socialist candidate followed and was given an
uninterrupted hearing. In a
long harangue he stated • that
tho Socialists had a |11atforni
but it was in Germany. Ue
guessed it was the Liberals that
gave the Crow's Nest coal fields
away; to which statement Mr.
Galliher afterwards courteously
replied by saying he thought it
was just a slip of the tongue as
ho felt certain Mr. Mills knew
lietter, because it was a, provincial not a dominion matter.
With jealous rage he went into
convulsions in referring to P.
Burns having a monopoly of the
meat business.
Long before his speech was
finished the audience showed
si;,iis of having that tired I'eel-
. ing and wero heartily glad when
he completed,-or rather stop-
ded, his foolish discourse. He
was very abusive in his remarks
mid instead of gaining the sympathy of a single individual he
wou the enmity of many.
VV. H. P. Clement in an able
address successfully refutted
every argument advanced by
the Socialist and his continuous
[scoring brought forth round
after round of applause.
i Tho comparison '.betweeri the
[uninterrupted , hearing given
Mr. Mills and the discourteous
treatment given Mr. Clement
'by the Socialists was vory
noticeable to all and called
forth many expressions of censure.
W. A Galliher, the Dominion
representative for this riding,
next addressed the meeting.
lie spoke at some length and
was asked many questions by
the few Scocialists present, to
which Mr. Galliher in each instance gave a   satisfactory lie-
A vote of thanks was tendered the chairman and the meeting closed with three cheers for
Mr. Brown.

The deputation of over 100
visitors, delegates to the recent
mooting of Chamber of Commerce of the empire in Montreal
have been visiting the Boundary during the week. The
Board of Trade in tlie different
towns have shown them over
the mines tributary to thoir
respective towns. The visitors
wore shown the various ores of
tbo district from the low grade
copper, worth $5 to the ton, to
the high grade per gold and
silver, running into the hundreds, and some beautiful samples of tolurido, with $.{,000 to
the ton, Most of tbe visitors
appeared considerably interested in the district and many of
them in seeking light on the
mining situation in British Columbia, learned that many of
tbo enterprises counted more on
American capital than on English for the development of the
country. Some of them were
collecting reliable data for disseminating at homo in the resources of the Boundary.
