confident that if the party wore or
Kiintfted throughout the province ut
the, next I'vimninn eloctlon, instead

turn seven Conservatives.
Premier McBride wus Invitqd to

"that as Chairman of tbo Committee of arrangements be ropTHn*tod,
that, after mature consideration,
they felt that In addition to organization workup whieh was easily of the
tlrst importance, certain resolutions
speaking of the policy of tho party
in British Columbia should he adopted. The committee felt there was
no necessity ,fnr the adoption of a
platform at this time. Por nne
thing it knew what splendid am mil
nitton from a lighting point of view
u platform afforded to their oppo
nonta. The Liberals had met here
lately and adopted a platform, and
be would venture to suy there was
no Conservative in tbat room who
cannot rlso and make enpitul out of
it. At the sdmti tVrifa, there were
certain resolutions whiqh they should
adopt. 'These' resolutions had been
submitted to the committee and ho
hud no doubt would meet with the
approval  of  the convention.
A Conservative convent imi Bome
years ago hud laid down a platform,
and the present administration had
done everything possible to follow
along the lines laid down at that
time. Though it was impossible at
nil times tt} make drastic changes
and radical reforms, they had tried
to give to tho people of British Ctt
lumbiu sound aad economical admin
istration, aad" ■ niiy trtie who had

When the convention assembled iu
the afternoon Mr. G. II. Barnard
wus elected permanent cJiuirman, aad
W. McKay as secretary of the convention,
Ia Introducing tho resolutions tho
speeches were limited to live minutes
Mr. McPhillipSi in proposing tho
expressed bis gratification at having
on the platform tho Premier, wbo
had beeu tlrst to bring party government to this province. As a re
suit instead of having six governments in live years, they bad ono

years und a half, and lie usked whotb

servutive Government would contln

members of the convention rising to
their feet,  and   giving
The Premier In thanking them,
said this was easily the largest aad
most, represcnt.ilt ive Convention ever
gathered in HritIsli Columbia. Tho
most prominent Conservatives of
British Coluiiihia were gathered there
und everything spelled success, which
meant much for the party, because
British Columblu had conn? to he re
gurded as the political barometer of
the Great West. While thanking
them for the compliment paid him,
he recognized tbat it was not so
much a compliment tu him as to the
great Conservative Party, whieh In
reality had brought it ubout.
While much bad been aecoinplislie I
the grievance, still remained, ■ but
they had in the pledge of Mr. Borden every indication that in the near
future British Columbia would receive fair play. (Cheers.)
The Premier reviewed tho events
leading up to his commission to the
Old Lund. He hud not yet made
public his report,, put when made it
would be seca that they were at liberty to press this question, und there
was good . ground for the promise
made by Mr. Bordon that ho would
appoint a Commission to examine
Into British Columbia's claims and
award us thnt Commission might
decide. (Anplaiiso.)
Mr. Wooilworth, in moving a reso
lutioa on Asiatic exclusion, said:
.There were certain wire pullers who
wore trying to put the Conservative
party in a false light In regard to
Asiatic exclusion. Ho instanced the
Natal Act passed time after time by
the Provincial Government and dis
allowed ut Ottawa,     That there was
reason  for   Ibis,   was   il   because  Cox
and tho Grand Trunk Pacific wanted
cheap   labor?
At tliis point it was unanimously
voted, that n delegation from tho
Asiatic Exclusion League bo received
nt 10 o'clock on Saturday, and bo
given till  1» 30 lo stale their case.

Mr ll, P. Green moved the rosolu
tion on Indian ItcaorvoB, oxplninlnp.
that while by agreement with tho
dominion Oovurnmenl the Indian
lands wen- to revorl to tho province
when not used h.v tho Indians, this
had noi been carried out, There
were half a million acres of land for
23.000 Indians. Worse than thai thu
Liberal Government had leased tracts
ol these lands to their heelers.
CONFIDENCE IN    Mil   I.   L    BOR
DEN, K. c,
Mr. Wm. Blnkomoro moved an ex
pression of confidence in .Mr. K. I.
Borden.K.C, as leader of the party
in the Dominion. Ile said: "No one
knows better than the Conservatives
that to win a victory it. was neces
sary to have a leader, Wc have won
a meat victory locally with a loader
of whom we are proud, If it is ne
CCSSary locally to have a leader, il
is necessary in the wider arena of
Federal affairs. Mr. Bordon may
not have tbe llowory eloquence of
the leader of tbe Dominion Govern
ment, but be lias qualities which
woar well, llis leadership is shown
in the fact lhat bis visit to tbe
province has revivified the party, and
this convention is a roBillt of it.
The motion was carried, all dele-
gatos rising to their feet and giving
cheers for Mr. llorden. The resolution  was  wired  to  Mr.  Rorden.
.1. A. Harvoy, of Cranbrook, then
moved the
He pointed to tbo Improved tinan
cial condition of the province ami
said the Convention itself was a tri
bate to the Premier and his able
colleagues. The resolution was car
ried bv a standing vote,three cheers
and   a   "Tigor."
Mr. ,1. II, Beckworth moved that
the Convention congratulate Sir
Charles  Tapper,   Hart.,    on  his    pro-
otioti   to    the position    of a    privy
unclllor, The motion was carried
with applause.
Mr.    A.   K.    Watts    of    Cranbrook,
moved  a  resolut ion    condemning the
raft  and    corruption  of the present
Liberal  Government at Ottawa.
ih The members of this convention
desire to pluee themselves on record
as emphatically endorsing the course
ot the Government of British Columbia In connection with the advocacy
of Better Terms for this province.
To this course they believe Is wholly
attributable tbe recognition, though
Inadequate, of the claims of British
Columbia for special treatment on
the part of the Dominion Government, already received, am! also-that
the action of Hon. R. McBride, Premier, in carrying an appeal to the
Imperial authorities wns effective in
preventing a    tinal    and    unalterable
ttlement of the financial relations
between the Province and the Domln-
11 of Canada, as proposed hy the
Government at Ottawa.
They desire, therefore, on this important question to congratulate the
Government upon tbe conspicuous
success of its efforts throughout, und
particularly the Hon. Richard McBride, Premier, on the fruits of his
mission to England.
They hereby pledge themselves to
Btrongly support the continuation of
the struggle for Better Terms until
brought to a successful issue, and
the rights of Ibe Province fully secured.
The members of the Convention believe that Canada should be
preserved as a white man's country
and approve of the course pursued hy
the Local Government with respect
to Asiatic immigration unit al the
time condemn tbe attitude of the Dominion Government and especially
tbat of our llritish Columbia members at   Ottawa in this connection.
CD    That     lhis  meeting    approves of
the action of the Local Government
iu assert iim its rights with respect
to the control «»f the fisheries oi the
Province, ami condemns the Dominion Government for its lack of policy and inactivity in dealing with
this most Important industry.
ill The Convention declares in favor of a quinquennial census hiking
ia H C, iu order to place this province apoli lhe same basis as the
Northwestern Provinces and thereby
reap the advantages and development
Common  to  the  whole  west.
ial This convent ion Btrongly eon
damns the practice which has been in
vogue since 1836, of delaying the Dominion elections in certain cotistit-
uencos until after the results in the
general elections are known, for tbe
purpose of unfairly Influencing the
electors in favor of tho party In
(ID WHEREAS under the terms of
the Convention between the Governments of British Columbia and Do
minion of Canada the former conveyed to the Dominion large tracts
of the best, lands of the Province for
the exclusive use and bonofll of the
Indians alone, with the express understanding tbat such lands should
correspond to the actual needs of the
Indians, und thut (lie aroas should
be   reduced   as   the   tribes  diminished;
AND WHEREAS in many eases
there has heen a material diminution
of the   Indians oa  such   reserves;
AND WHEREAS certain of these
reserves are within lhe coiillnos nf
lhe larger cities of tbi' pin. nice lo
the detriment of the community;
AND WHEREAS these reserves
nre being used by Ibe Liberal Gov
eminent at Ottawn in the interest, of
political ravorites ami not a origin
ally intended;
tbat if is highly desirable thai stups
be immediately   tuken   towards   the
readjust menl of the ureas of such
teSOl'VOS, so as lo make the unused
, lands   available   lol'   settlement.

its proceedings should be uf more
than usual interest. Several ol tbe
distinguished ornaments of past bos-
Dions will be absent, uml a few new
men will be introduced to the assembly. Aiming tbe most notable of tho
missing ones will be Henri Bourassa,
G. S. Hyman, Hon. Rudolph Lem leu i
the courtly minister of the Postal
Department, who is now on un ambassadorial trip to Japan, und perhaps Hon. A. B. Aylesworth, who is
recovering his health at an American sanitarium. Of the fresh faces
the ones which will attract most attention will undoubtedly be those of
Hon. Wm. Pugsloy nnd Hon. George
P. Graham. The members of the
Commons, too, will have the satisfaction of greeting those old
warhorses, whose names, since tbe
last adjournment, liuve been bandied
ubout somewhat unceremoniously by
the scundal-loving public, one of those
who sought but failed to get redress
from the courts for a damaged reputation, and the other of whom hus
expressed his determination to try
und succeed where his unfortunate
colleague failed - we have reference to
Hon. H.R. Bmmerson and Sir Frederick Borden.
But while the changes in the personnel of the assembly will not be
very great, we doubt if it will not
be more pronounced than any change
in the character of the proceedings.
We may expect the same old wrangles of a personal nature and the
same subordination, to them, of the
real business of the country. From
present appearances it seems as if
the only fresh matter which the
Government will have to place before
the House will be the commercial arrangement with Prance, and ns the
Finance Minister in his speeches since
his return has dwelt so strongly on
the advantage which Canada will derive from thnt arrangement, the public will know Its details which, so
far, have been sedulously concealed
from the country. (t is to be hoped thut the treaty will be such as
to bear out the vaunt of the Cabinet; that it will be more gratifying
to the people than any report
whieh Sir Wilfred Laurier could possibly make of his attitude at the
conference, in London, of Colonial
It muy be, of course, that Clifford
Olfton will have some announcement
to make in the matter of the All
Bed Line. Of late we have heard
little of this proposed service, and
it is beginning to drop out of the
public recollection. This, of course,
may be as the government wished.
so that when sprung again at the
forthcoming session of Parliament, or
at least before tbe campaign for the
generul elections lias commenced, us
ns an organized und practical project, it might have all the more effect upon the electorate, and might
help materially to return the Liberals to power. When Mr. Sifton is
found working, with that energy for
which he is remarkable, to made the
All Bed line an accomplished fact as
far as Government undertakings can
make it so, nnd he has been working
thus for some mouths now, we may
not unnaturally look for developments. With any of the other Liberal leaders in churge of this ambitious scheme we should not be disposed to place any faith in its materialization, especially in view of the
not too favorite attitude of the Government of Great Britain. But with
. Sifton conducting the negotiations, it is different. He is the
great practical organizing mind in
the Liberal parliamentary party. As
a politician und us a business man
he has immense capacity, and he
has, what makes his capacity so
valuable, measureless tenacity of purpose. He very seldom fails where
it is important for him, personally,
to succeed, and us it Is almost essential to his Immediate political future that he should succeed in this
matter, the likelihood is that he
Will. Mr. Sifton desires to return to
the cabinet, and be in the running
for the leadership when Sir Wilfrid
Laurier drops out, and if he makes
a success of the All-Bed line this
ambition Will he achieved. We do
not forget that on more than one occasion, of late, be has been urged
and urged very strongly to re enter
the ministry, and that ull be has to
do now is to signify his willingness
to comply witli those requests, and
almost any port folio will he placed
ut his disposal But that will uot
do for Mr. Sifton. He left the cub
Inot under u •loud, a cloud from
which a man of less force and ability could not liuve emerged we bog
how Mr. Bmmerson and Mr, Hyman
were swallowed up und how Sir
Frederick Borden probably will be
and he will not return until it Is
not   so much » matter   of desire, as
a matter of i .pulsion, for the Gov
eminent to mako room for him. His
return' to thr ministry on the crest
of the "All Bed route" would be u
spectacular one. We may expect Mr.
Sifton, therefore, to marshnll all his
powers for tho accomplishment of
this project he now bus in bund, and
if be does not make a goad report,
of his labor.;, we mny reguid the
project as a dead issue lor the next
decade at least.
But. if Mr Sifton should fall, it
is difficult In see what tbe Govern
ment will have to go to the conn
try on In thr nature of an election
cry, except  Its general record,     anil
it is to be doubted if that bos re

uny more than u pail with ;e per

contemporaneous with prosperity in
Canada that has been the fortune ol

be overlooked, perhaps. that the
Government did not create the pros

The by-elections throughout On

If you purchase a Kootenay
without the reservoir and
decide  later that the
reservoir is a real
necessity, why, just
order it and attach it
yourself.   It's easily
done.   Merely
sremove the screws ^
and take off the plate marked
"REMOVE FOR RESERVOIR" (see top illustration),
which provides an opening
for the hot air to come
through and circulate
under the reservoir. Then attach,
by means of
screws, the
reservoir and
the flue box
shown in lower illustration.
