Johii L. Retallack Met a Cool Re-
F cieptlon at Perguson and
Trout Lake.
Hon. R. F. Green Is Very Popular
ttrid His Friends are Confident of Success.
Retallaok's Ferguson Meeting.
A public meeting was hold at Ferguson Thursday by Liberal Candidato
Retnlluolc, assisted by W. A. Galliher,
M. P. Tho Socialist candidate, S.
Shsnn . ,vnr p .-soint, and A. Carney
ck lo represented Hon. R. F. Green.
All of these gentlemen addressed tho
meoting, which was a good on and a
representative one. The audience
showed an inclination to be noisy while
Mr, llctalluck was delivering .his
opening address, but Mr. I'!. Hodgo had
nu difficulty in maintaining order and
1 outside of a number of interruptions
and denials when tho speaker would refer to his great strength in the lower
part of the riding, he got a very good
hearing.
The audience did not seem friendly
disposed, however, toward tho Liberal
candidate, and his followers, if he had
'any, kept mum.
Mr. Shannon, on the contrary, appeared to have a number of followers
scattered through tho large audience
aud got hearty applause at times, but
the great hulk of the applause was saved
for Mr. Carney, who supported the
candidature of Hon. R. P. Green.
.When Mr. Carney was called on ho
was unable to speak for several
minutes owing to the continued
cbeeting for Hon. Mr. Green and himself. Mr. Carney made a very good
short speech in which he did his chieftain no discredit. The .meeting closed
at ll with very hearty cheers for Hon.
Mr. Green and Mr. Shannon.
As stated above, If Mr. Retallack had
any supporters present thoy were careful not to show their colors, but W. A.
���Galliher certainly bad a good many admirers present, and he was given a
unanimous vote of thanks on the proposal of J. C. Murray.
Retallaok's Meeting ut Trout Lake
, On Friday night, September Sth,
the politicians again gathered at Trout
iLakd, tbe meoting being called by the
Liberal candidate, John L. Retallack.
The speakers present along with candidates Retallack and Shannon, were A.
Carney of Kaslo. representing Hon. R.
i\ Green, and W. A- Galliher, M. P.,
who spoke on behalf of Mr. Retallack.
J. J, LungstalT occupied the chair, and
lit 8 p. in. Introduced John L. Ratal*
lack, who occupied about three fourths
��f ur, hour telling the large audience
���what bad men were Hon. Mr. Green
and Mr. Shannon. Tho speaker dealt
largely., with the Socialist candldutc
��t the outset in HO pndoavoi- to show
ttufut Mr.,.Shannon waa not properly
nominated) ond that one McDonald,
\vho . represented the Whitewater
Miners' Union at the Labor convention In Trout Lake really represented
a union that was not ln existence at
the time, and that slpcp (he date of the
convention said McDonald bad left the
country. Mr. Retallack characterized
Conservatives generally as a class of
men unworthr the confidence of the
people, and he tried to prove (though
unsuccessfully) that Premier McBride
/tn*. JJpp. Mr, Green were members of
the ''old gppjj ftp Victoria" that have
.robbed the country to Buah a lftrge ex--
tent for tho past seven or eight years.
The speaker appeared to possess a very
���bad memory, forgetting that the province pi British Columbia has  been
governed since it was admitted to confederation by coalition governments,
which were ut all times composed ol
all political parties; men who called
themselves Liberals, Conservatives,
Independents, Labor, etc. etc. it was
not known in many instances what
party allegiunee, if tliey had any, thut
many of tlie members bore. It was,
as Mr. Retallack very well knows, tho
ins und the outs, and most of the members wore with the ins for a part of a
session of the house and with the outs
for the balance of the session. Mr.
Retallack does not need to be told this
for he opposed Mr. Green in 1S.I8, run-
ni"g us a supporter of an avowed Con-
;,.tive, Hon. J. H. Turner. Mr.
Ueu.iuck was not elected, of course,
and what did he do? He loft the
country and renounced his allegiance
to tho British empire���his mother
country. He adfcitted this on the platform, giving as his excuse that lie' de
sired to go into business in the United
States and hold property Interests. We
would like to ask: Did Mr. Retallack
lind the laws oppressive or business
chances not so good ns in British Columbia, or what brought him back so
soon ? Surely it was not that he saw
no chance to satisfy his political ambi-
tion in Uncle Sam's territory. No,
hardly thut, but rather he believed his
presence was needed, if not desired, In
the legislature of the provinco of British Columbia, as a law-maker, as a
[li..
leader of thought, as an example to the
rising generation. In his speech Friday night, Mr. Retallack went back to
comparatively ancient history to Hud a
Conservative who had anything to do
with politics in B. C. and on whose integrity and record some aspersions
might be cast to prove that Mr. Mc.
McBride and Mr. Green wore unworthy
the confidence of the people. After
diligent search the speaker discovered
Hon. Mr. Pooley, and there is no doubt
Mr. Pooley would have derived much
amusement had he but heard the attempts that were made to besmear him.
Following Mr. Pooley's record to the
presont timo. the most serious complaint was that the gentleman has been
a representative of the very small and
unimportant riding of Esquimalt and
that he practically represent^ Hon. Mr.
Dunsmuir. The speaker charged Hon.
Mr. Green with proving a -jonon^Hy ifl
tho houso nnd of having ,|je.en alpfttj-,1)
by the laboring men and.fhon, proving
false to the trust reposed in him.
Referring again to Mr. Shannon, the
speaker said he would "discuss the
Socialist candidate and bis party, if it
could be called a party, und especially
somo of the plunks���if they could be
called planks." He said It was foolish
to claim thut a war was now on between capital aud labor, for .there was
nothing of the kind. Then the matter of
conllseatlon without remuneration was
touched upon. He said Mr. Shannon had
avoided that question up to tho previous night, when he said ho believed
in It, for from timo immemorial capital hud reaped the prollts of the
laborer's toll. So, were that property
conliseated, It would only be taking
back what was, got unjustly. The
speaker said that kind of talk would
keep capital from coming ln, and B. C.
would be avoided by the very class of
people we were most In need of. We
have not enough eupltnlists; ��� we have
not enough capital; and.If Mr. Shannon should be elected we*' would bo
much less likely to get that which is
essential to our prosperity.
Mr. Shannon was then called,upon.
Ho oppened by stating that bo was
being accorded better treatment by his
opponents than at the beginning of the
campaign, Intending, perhaps, to convey the idea that they are be30tnlng
afraid of him. Ho occupied second
place at recent meetings when
there were but two candidates present,
while when there were three he had
third place. He said bis importance
appeared to be growing and the two old
parties- were uniting to defeat him.
How strange that the Conservatives
should also feel that a secret alllanoo
has been formed between SndlUllsts
and Grits to defeat them. Unexplained
his nomination to thu satisfaction of
tlie "fair-minded and then told how
strong he was in Kaslo and the lower
part of the p'iding. Ho mentioned as
as an instance the Goodeuotlgh family
of Kuslo (supposed to be stl'BDg Lib
orals) where there wero threo Votes,
und he would get two ot them. So It
would seem by this that tlio Socialist
candidate is splitting the Liberal vote.
He said that capital is gradually getting into tho hands of tlio few, and
when Socialists get the government In
their own bauds they will give the
workingmen the Mill product of tbeir
toll.
Mr. A. CiirHoy, representing Hon.
R. F. Green; was the next speaker He
called Mr. Retallack ono ul tlie latter-
day Liberals. He bad loaned Mr.
Shannon, one of tho post cards distributed by the Liberal committee,
which pointed out Mr. Green's wrongdoings In the house, and what was
found on the card was the only thing
Mr, Shannon hud to say against Mr.
Green. Therefore, since what the card
stated wus practically untrue, Mr.
Green must have ft-pretty clean record.
The speaker said he found at this end
of the riding Mr. Retallack and Mr.
Green were continually sparring and
he Iclt that he occupied the position of
Umpire to settle the disputes between
tho two pugilists. He thought Mr
Retallaclt must have derived but very
little comfort frdrii tho support shown
shown him at this ona of the riding.
He���the speaker���thought his reception decidedly chilly.

announced that Sir Charles U. Tapper
would bo in Ferguson Monday night
and invited Mr. Galliher to remain
over two more clays and meet one who
was his equal, a fellow M. P., and a
trained pleader like himself,
No government, said Mr. Carney,
has ever been perfect and no government ever would be. The experience
of this province has been particularly
unfortunute because we have not had
what could be called a responsible government. Wo have had no less than
eight premiers iu oightyeurs, but since
party govornmont has been secured we
muy reasonably hope for good responsible rule. ,
Under the old coalition system when
members wero elected on tbeir own
personality there could be, it seemed,no
stable government, and tho members
woro continually quarreling among
themselves and calling ono another
grafters and thieves. Is Ita wonder that
men deemed it unsafe to inve'st capital
in tho country V There is an abundance of capital I'Bftdy and waiting for

thero is u responsible and stable government established. The lieutenant-
governor wants to see the country ad-
vanue uml he chose Hon. Mr. McBride
to form a government and he lias not
disapproved of any act of tho premier
since ho,.culled him to olllco. The
speaker thought the lieutenant governor surely believed Mr. McBride, Mr.
Green und their associates (tho best
material In the province. The Liberal
lieutenant-governor would noye**,hu,y,e
called Mr. McBride to bo premier hud
his record not been good, so it Is .evident that tho criticisms by the opposition candidates in this euuipuigu are
not honest.
Ml'i Ciirnoy made a telling spoeoh
wlvii'h.*. was very heartily applauded
from *.'ui-.t to finish. He exploded
some of the,arguments of bis opponents
and altogether put up a good argument
in support of Mr. Green.
W. A. Gallihor M. P. followed and
got a good hearing to a well-delivered
speech on Dominion political issues,
Replying to a question brought up hy
Mr, Shannon, be explained that tho
liabilities in connection with tho contractor who failed on the Arrowhead
branch railway (construction) would be
paid by'the government to those who
held time cheeks, out ot tho government grant, enough bating been held
back by tlio government fdr that pur-
jJOSh.
Ml*, lletallue'c spoke fot'a Short time,
running over the remafks of His opponents, and the Mooting close'tl with
cheers for (been and Shannon1. Mr,
Retallaok's followers did not attempt a
cheer, just the same as at Pergli.b'ti the
previous night, feeling, probably, that
it would be unwisu to mnko an e.-.hib;
tion of their weakness.
DIED VERY SUDDENLY.
Mrs Tony Bectfer Took 111 Monday
and Died c'f Hefrf f Disease.
A sad death took place on Monday
high up in the mountains, six miles
above Ten mile and twelve miles above
Ferguson, Ml''. Tony Becker and his
wife were living at tho Black Prince
mine, where Mr. Becker had th
men working.
When Mr. Becker left the camp
at 10 o'clock Monday morning to go to
tho mine Mrs. Becker was woll anil
happy as usual, but when ho und his
men returned at noon for dinner Mrs.
Becker'was found unconscious at the
tent door. One of the men was sent at
oneo to Ten Mile to dispatch a telephone message to Dr. Newcombe,
while Mr. Becker employed every
means at his command to arouse consciousness. The doctor got the message about 2 o'clock and made a quick
trip to the camp over a very bad trail,
arriving there at 7:15, a'briut one und a
half hours after death had taken place.
Upon examination tho doctor found
that tbe probable cause of death was
heart failure, symptoms leading up to
that having been suffered bv the un-
fortunate lady on previous occasions.
On returning to town Dr. Newcombe
had six men dispatched to the mine,
wlio carried the body on a stretcher to
Ten Mile. This proved no light duty,
for the body weighed 220 pounds whon
living.
Undertaker J. O. Piper had charge
of .the intermont assisted by B. U,
Smith.
The  funeral  took place from ..Odd

CAMPAIGN RALLY
The Largest and Best Public Meet
ing in the History of Ferguson
Tuesday Night.
Sir  Charles  Hibbort   Tupper  and
Hon. Robert F. Green  Deliver
Telling Speeches.
The campaign is drawing to a close
und Ferguson will not have any moro
public meetings. Tho meetings called
by Mr. Green und Mr. Retallack have
been well attended even though the
weather has been bad, but the meeting
of last Tuesday night wus, without exception, tho largest a'licl most representative that we. havo had, for there
were more men down from the mines
than on former occasions.
We would like to give our readers
the benefit of reading the utterances
of all the speakers, but snace forbids.
At 8:10 10. G. Woodward of the
EAOLE, who occupied tho chair, entered tbo hall, followed by Sir Charles
Hibbert Tupper and Hon. It. F. Green,
who took seets on the platform. Tin
chairman then-arose and invited A. ,1.
Gordon and S. Attwood to take seats
among the speakers, and after explaining that Sir Hibbert and the minister
of mines bad un accident delving to
to Ferguson whioh made them a few
minutes late, he announced the time
limit of tho speakers to be .tu minutes,
excepting Sir Hibbert. Ho then called
on tho Liberal-Conservative candidate;
HON. ROBERT P. GREEN,
who delivered a short address occupying about fifteen minutes. His remarks
were more of an explanation und summing up of the situation iu tiie various
divisions of the riding, and a forecast
of the probable result of tho election
in the province.
A. .1. GORDON,
representing tho Socialist candidate,
was the next speaker, He was cheered
on rising and he delivered his remarks
in a pleasing manner, butsceiuingly he
failed to realize that his subject should
ba.ve been Socialism and not Conservatism. Why men will tako up timo at
these meetings talking about governments that have been but are now dead
instead of trying to formulate a plan of
government forthe future. Is dljfioult
to understand We in* B. C. ar0: putting out to sea in a new boat, whatever that boat will bo called, and we
sliould discuss tho future, for thore is
much business ahead ol our legislators.
One thing about Mr. Gordon's speech,
he kept within provincial issues, even
if his remarks were mure of a tearing
down than a building up nature.
Tho next speaker was
S. ATTWOOD
of Kaslo, representing the Liberal car.

at ease in delivering his remarks, as
did the previous speakers, but ho appeared ts bo alllictetl with a very bin'

was only one thing 'which the oh',

was the Introduction of party lines, He
tried to compare tlie building of the C.
P. R. in 1882 .with the G. T. P. in lOOX
Ho showed gross ignorance of history and polities in many matters, not
tho least of which was his assertion
thut tho Rogina and I'rinco Albert and
the Calgary and Edmonton branch lines
of the C. I'- P.. In tho Northwest terri
lories, aggregating 550 miles of road,
were useless.
The chairman then introduced a gentleman whose name is known by everybody, a mnn of great ability aud a

OTTR   SUPPLEMENT ^
The attention of our readers is
directed to the supplement that will
be lotincl folded in this week's paper,
It gives lhe history ot the dis*
covery and location ol the phenomenally rich free gold properties
known as the Lucky Jack and
Swede groups on Poplar creek, as
also the other properties owned by
the Great Northern Mines, Ltd,
Many letters have been received by
the Eagle enquiring about the new
mining company which lias amalgamated 2t of the best free-gold
properties in the Lardeau into one
big company, so we considered that
the best way to serve our sub
scribers would be to publish the
company's prospectus in full, p
mission for which has been granted,
and also reproduce what many of
tlie leading journals of British Columbia have had to say about the
claims on Poplar, and such other
inlorniation that we had room lor in
thc supplement. This, therelore,
is our reply to the inquiries, and we
believe it will prove more satisfactory than what could have been given
in a letter.
TO-MORROW THE VERDICT.
The great battle is at hand, and
tomorrow morning the contestants
in the three-corvered fight will line
up at the polls. One or other ol
the three candidates will be chcted
to represent this riding at Victoria
for the next four years.
It behooves us as electors, one
and all, to weigh carefully the issues that are before us, and search
well the characters and the records
ol the men who are seeking our
suffrage, and support the man whom
we believe to be best suited for the
position and he whose party will give
to tlie rich province ot British Columbia the best and most stable
government. The Eagle has pointed i
out many ceasons why the administration of Premier McBride should
be given a fair trial and we
firmly believe it is the best that
could be obtained at the present
time. Mr, McBride was chosen by
the lieutenant-governor, and Sir
Henrifjoly is believed to possess
sound judgment by men ol all political creeds. Let us rally to the
support of the |man who lifted our
province from the slough of despond and introduced party politics,
which is the only responsible form
of government.
a criticism of the past and gone
coalition governments of British
Columbia, with which the present
Conservative administration had
no connection whatever.. Sir Hibbert said ha thought Sir Henri Joly
the lieutenant-governor surely
thought Richard McBride a clean
and capable man and one who
would do the country no discredit
or he certainly would not have had
placed in his hands-the government
of the country. Mr. Gordon's
speech, while a good one Irom a
Liberal standpoint, was deficient in
explanation of Socialistic .principles.
We recognize that the theory of
Socialism is good, but to explain
how it can be successfully put into
practice seems to baffle the most
clever advocates of the doctrine.
Mr. S. Attwood, who represented
Mr. Retallack at the Conservative
meeting Tuesday night, certainly
did neither himself nor Mr. Retal
lack'any credit by his crude efforts
to Besmear Mr. Green and the Con*
servative party. His coarse refer*
ence to the late Hon. Clarke Wallace was as wanting in discretion as
it was untrue, and the speaker must
have felt Very smallt upon witness*
ing the reception by the audience of
his little yarn. Sir Hibbert was not
slow to nnil the statement as a
lalsehood immediately upon its re
cital, and later when he rose to
speak he handled Mr. Attwood without gloves. The drubbing that he
got will no doubt be helpful to him
in the future and teach him to let
dead men rest quietly in their graves
instead ol resurrecting them to
testify maliciously on a political
platform.

FERGUSON. ��� ��.  C, NOTES.
How funny it would be if the impossible should happen, the inevitable should prove a contrary and
the Liberals were to have a majority
in the next assembly. Just tor a
little recreation let us concede to
tt)e Liberals in our mind's eye a
majority in the house. They have
no leader. No! but tliey have Joe
Martin, or, more properly, Joe
Martin would have the Liberals, and
a state of chaos would prevail. We
believe a Liberal government would
not live through the first session,
and a state of dissatisfaction would
exist throughout the province.
However, it is altogether improbable
that Hon. Mr. McBride will suffer defeat, and from late reports it
would seem that the government
will be sustained by a substantial
majority,

perfect ovation. Ho startod out by
telling of tho upset over the bank on
tbo way in from Beaton. Ha was In-
torrupted by a party in the audience
who said, "that's tliu way Mr. Green
will bo turned out .it tliu polls.". Sir
Hibbert r.iortod that ' Mr, Green got
i;i again and rotlo safely into town,"
Tho speaker severely orttlcizet) Mr,
Attwood'd I'oforonco '.'> ihu lute Hon.
Clark Wallace and mndo thc goulle-
tnan look very cheap. Referring to
.Mr. Gordon, tho speaker was surprised
to lind thai hu used and quoted Liberal
party ilteraturo In his championship
of tlio Socialist cause, and lie was sorry
ho did nut propound the doctrine*' of
Socialism or of'Mr. Shannon theoandi
dato of that party. Eo obsorvod that
thu Socialist movotnont is growing and
that 'party may eventually possess
strength enough to form a government
but foe tho present, when their day has
not arrivod, ho thought It only lair of
ns in ask that instead of thoir champion talking .about, their prospects,
rather toll us something ol their principles, anil what changes they would
introduce should they get control of
the government. The only example
given'by Mr. Gordon was that of Iho
Mormon who hud two wives, one young
and tho othor old. The young wife
kept plucking out thu gray hairs and
the old wife plucked out tlie bluck
bnes and eventually the man found
himself bald. Sir. Ulbbort thought
the illustration not very complimentary to the ladies and a poor example
i)f the relation of socialism to thu old
parties. Ho thought if .Mr. Gordon
hail said that Socialism and Liberalism
arc not divided it wo,.Id be nearer the
truth than what ho did say, vi.'..: that
Sooialism and Trade-Unionism are not
divided, lie accused tho Socialist representative of shooting at thu Con-
scrvattvo candidate with Liberal powder instead of talking .Socialism: and
Mr. Attwood had hied away off to Qt-
tawa to get something to talk about
instead of discussing live provincial
issues.
Referring to the big land steal whieh
was attempted in Last Kootenay, he
thought it very funny that thu Conservative members of thu government
should get ai! theblainuaiid Mr. Wells,
a Liberal, be exonerated when Wells
was tho man who took thu grants to
Montreal to deliver to tha C. P. R.>
hut lie asked fur further concessions.'
Being refused, hu brought the grunt
homo again. Who, 1 ask was the offender against Iho province V Why
not include Mr. Wells as a guilty one,
who was taken hy the neck as it were,
tfiii'l hurled out of tlie cabinet? Sir
Hibbert then referred to tho manv acts
that bad been passed by the, B, C.
legislature that wero helpful to laboring interests and which were introduced by Conservatives. The speaker
referred to tho load bounty, claiming
it was a help, hut it was not what
would holp us most and uot the best
that we wero entitled to. and il would
stand in the way of our securing a
tariff, He stigmatized the bounty as
something lo tide ovor the issue and
the Ottawa government should be
ashamed of it. lie was glad to suu Mr.
'. reen in tho department of mines, for
ho was a mainlander and a good, capa
I le man, Sir Hlbbert's spuecb was n
master effort and lie appeared to curry
the audience along iu deep interest
throughout. There wero a few Interruptions and questions at lirst, but soon
everybody settled down to listen and
learn.
