Liberals encounter another Frost at the
Mill City
A mooting was held at. tin- Library
Hall un Wednesday ovoning in the in
torests ni the Liberal party, the
8peaKora being Messrs. A. It. Macdon
aid mid A. Ban field, both uf Oran
brook. The chair wus occupied by tl,
w. Donahoe, There was a fair at
tendance, hut very little enthusiasm
shown, the remarks of tho speakers
being recoived In stolid silence
Mr. Ban Ho Id pointed out that tho
Liberal government had never sold
or transferred nny timber tracts es
cept to the highest bidder; that thc
Liberals had always worked towards
the lowering of the tariffs, contrary
to the policy of the Conservatives,
who increased the cost of living by
maintaining high tariffs.
Mu thon took up in turn the Fair
Wage Clause nnd Workmen's Accident
Clause, Showing the protection which
the workingman now enjoyed and
which wns entirely due to the pater
nai care of the Liberal government.
The immigration question wai
dwelt upon at some length, Mr. Bn-n-
field endeavoring to show that it was
policy to encourage Japanese immigration to some extent for the pre
sent at least, in order to secure thu
benefit of thc trade which Japan was
building up since the war.
The Lemieux act. was then dealt
with, showing the beneficial offect in
the settlement of labor disputes, the
credit of which, of course, was due
to the Liberal government.
Mr. linntield closed his remarks
with a few time honored platitudes
about empire building, added lustre,
etc., etc., calling upon all to vote foi
the return of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
his adherents. Thc silence which foi
lowed could almost  be felt.
Mr. Maedonald was then introduced
hy the chairman and gave a somewhat pleasing address, dealing prin
cipully, however, in ancient history
in the vicinity of 1896 through almost,
the whole of his remarks, Thc post
otfice department was first dealt witli
showing that under the Liberal administration there was now n surplus
of almost 11,000,000 yearly in plaee
of a deficit of three quarters of a
million yearly under the Conservn-
tlve regime. A glowing picture ol
the reduced postage rates and the increased number of post offices was
then followed by a somewhat desultory fire at the timber industry, im-
mignt,tion, trade policies, with a
somewhat intricate resume on timber
grants in which acres seem to have
got tangled up with square miles ;
great stress being laid, however, on
the fnct that no timber tracts or privileges were ever sold hy the Liberal
government unless to the highest bidder.
The Crow's Nest I'ass Railway
scandal was then taken up and by
some ingenious arithmetic process it
appeared that the Dominion govern
ment after giving nothing in the
shape of a laud grant to the promoters, came ont with a considerable asset in tbe shape nf B. C, lands, the
amount of which however, was not
clearly defined.
The Liberals had been chargod with
graft and improper expenditure of the
country's funds. There was not. time
now to go into figures but It could
be shown conclusively that the am
ount of money "Improperly" spent
would not exceed the proportion oi
$1.25 to $900, a very good showing
indeed for the amount handled. As
to the increased expenditure, about
which the opposition raised sueh an
uproar it was Indicative of the pro
gress being made by the country; it
was not the policy of good govern
munt to hoard money in its colters
nnd allow the industries and public
institutions of the country to remain
at a standstill merely lor the purpose
of showing a surplus.
It was lo be remembered that scan
dais had to be unearthed and charg
ed at the opening of a campaign that
while the Liberals wore not all angels
they were, on tho whole, a pretty
good sort, and anyone wishing to se
euro the best interests of lhe country
etc., would vote for Sir Wilfrid I nur
ier and those pledged to support bis
Tho moat enthusiastic portion ol
the meeting appeared to be the sing
Ing nf the National Anthem, which
thoroughly aroused all present.
How   did   the   Liberal
Members from B.G.Vote
in  Dominion House
Alight against
to the Constituencies
An Honest Government
Public sentiment has clearly ranged
itself on the side of the Consorvntlvo
party. The party itself is undivided.
It is led by a man of commanding
ability, whose personal ability and
seasc of public honor have never in
vited suspicion. Kor the purposes ol
tbe present election, in whieh the su
preme issue turns on the question ol
honest govermmnL of thu country's
affairs, no man could establish a
moro striking contrast between tlie
disgraceful episodes of the past and
the possibilities or the future than
Robert 1,. Borden. The people of
Canada know that a government led
hy Mr, Borden will be an honest gov
eminent. That is the real inspiration of the tremendous popular en
tlmsinsm which is manifesting itself
from one end of ilie country to tlie
other on behalf of the Conservative
A Trip to Ottawa
The general elections will bo held
on October Uii. November 12 will see
nn election In Kootenay ami Vale
Cflirihoo. Then Martin Burrell and
A. S. Goodeve will make a nice little
trip to the Dominion capital.
Was there a single amendment or
motion made or voted for by the Big
Seven of this province that was in
the interest of British Columbia?
On Mr. Lemieux1 s Concilliution bill
Mr. Borden moved that the measure
be referred to a select committee, so
that train men, and other working
men might have a hearing and suggest amendments. Motion was rejected by a straight Liberal vote.
Mr. J. B. Armstrong, Conservative,
moved that the Concilliution bill be
amended so that railway employers
md employees in respect of whom
other provision had been made would
he exempt from its provisions. Motion
rejected by straight party vote.
January llth, UI07, Mr. Borden
moved for the appointment of a select committee to inquire into the
matter of legislation to prevent
strikes and lock outs and other labor
troubles. Motion killed by an iyiiend-
tnent, adopted on n party votej recorded in Hansard, page 3690.
.January 2Kth, motion by Mr. Borden, Conservative, that Canada
should not enter into any treaty depriving herself of the control of her
own immigration. Rejected by a
straight purty vote; recorded in Hansard, page 2152.
Liberal members from this province
voted against every measure that
was of vital interest to the working
men of this province, If elected Mr.
Smith Curtis would have to support
the Laurier machine in their efforts
in favor of corporations and against
ihe working men.
Mr. Lund returned from Marysville

A dance was held in the Library

Mr. Wilson, superintendent of Presbyterian missions, was iu Wardner
on, Wednesday.
The usual Friday afternoon pro-
mam was rendered by the school
children last week and the young people acquitted themselves very creditably. The afternoon wound up with
an old fashioned spelling match, in
which MiiBter Alden Curtis distin
iniished himself by "spelling down"
tho. rest of the school.
Cost of Grand Trunk
In 1903, Laurier and his supporters
on the floor of the bouse gavo the estimated  cost    of  the G.T.P,  ut *13,-
One week later Chas. Hays, vice-
president of the G.T, P. publicly stated at a Portland Hoard of Trade
meeting, that the road would cost
$160,000,000, and that the Canadian
govornmont would supply the money
for the construction of the road.
It Is for tlie people of Canada to
decide which of these statements was
Government Defeats Itself.
Elections are proverbially uncertain
hut never in the history of Canada
have the chances of an opposition appeared as bright, aud encouraging as
they ure today. At no period in her
career has Canada hud a weaker government, a government with so little
to commend it und so much to explain and defend, There is a political proverb to the effect thut an opposition never defeats a government
hut that n government invariably defeats itself. Present conditions favor
the fulfillment of thi* prophecy wholly apart from the merits of the opposition, whose vigor and splendid
lighting qualities are all that could
be desired to take advantage of the
pitiable weakness of the government.
The Elections
There remains hut one working day
if one of the most hotly contested
political campaigns ever waged in
Canada. Both sides hn-ve fought with
exceptional vigor. But there has
been this essential difference, that
while the campaign on behalf of the
government has heen fought chielly
with machine methods and machine
agencies, the rank and file of the party taking an indifferent interest, the
Conservative light has been a spontaneous outburst nf popular energy
and enthusiasm.
Ut Richurd Cartwright inuda an ex
u'liimt remark in Ins Toronto speed
when he declared thai thu long session*

iry. lie might, have added Unit the conduct  which makes the session*! long     i*

wus a tremendous battle that the opposition had to wage for the right of tha ru-
presenl utiles of the people lo know how
1 lie alia it's of the Count rv ure inn linked.
And when lhe h-jht was over the lid hud
been lifted hut u little.
Vet, what was learned was hud enough.
It wns discovered lhat I lansuiiioiis lit
Ottawa are subjected to the ruke-otT an.
thut the esiute ,if tho country is distributed among politicians for practically nothing. The people found thut dishonest-,
is practised, and that the treasury is rob
ted. When the truth was coining out tm

A'tts alarmed lest the country should rlsi

Ayleswurlli hill. Here was a second contributing    cause to the prolongation  oi
tlie  session.    The  Avlcsworih   hill   wns  ull
attempt   by  tne governmenl io seize  the
rliftit   to   ma id] m late   the   franchise  df   i
people,   and  to  coerce   the   voters  hy  wuy
d a marked Imliol. It was me ministerial cry to lhe complaints  witli respect to
no (crafting. Tlie government said: ' lu
are disposed to vote against us heoausi
you do not trust us. WO will heat vo
through the voters' lists which we will
prepare, and wo will cripple public opinion with our murked ballot.A Ultimately the governmenl found it hud to drop
Its monstrous proposition or appe.il to
the electors forthwith, und ns il was
afraid oi the people it eupitulaleil and
the hill was abandoned. If ihe country
has today a rough or elementary idea of
ihe dishonesty that flourishes at Ottawa
it owes thut fuel to the loyalty with
which the Conservatives in parliament
fotlghl against secrecy. If the country is
able lo express its opinions upon public
mat tors  without   (he  handicaps which   the
Laurier government proposed to npply,
this situation is applied to the vigorous
uud successful manner in which Ml*, llorden and his colleagues battled for the
groat principle of public liberty.
Tho light took time; but It was worth
all it cosi. That struggle Is now transferred from the floor of parliament to
lhe constituencies. Wo have before us today the politicians who deny parliament
the right to know how the money is
spent and how the public property is distributed, We have before us ministers
who refused to produce the public documents, and olTer obstruction to the enquiries whloh the people are entitled Id
muke. We have before us tno men wh.
l*Itiltn the nyiu to manipulate our franchise and so deprive us of the secret ballot. These politicians have not repented
rhoy do not lell us that the wrongs ol
which they have been guilty will not he
repeated. They ure prepured to assist in
their improper conduct and in their hospitality   to free  rule.    Fr Hire      these
gentlemen must be driven. When they
nave gone the grafting will go with
them, and our parliament will be able to
conduct its business with that degree of
celerity for which  Sir Richard calls,

Grand Jury
New School House and
Jail     wanted    at
To thc Honorable Mr, .Justice Morrison, presiding justice at the sitting
of the court of Assize, Dyer und Terminer, and general goal delivery,
holdcn at CranhrooK, 11. C, on Tuesday, October 20th, A. i>., num.
We, the grand jurors of our Sovcr
eign Lord the King humbly present
as follows:
We have visited the provincial lockup, the St. Kugene hospital conduct-
ed by the Sisters of Oha-rlty, and the
City Public School, and beg to make
the  following  recommendations:
The provincial lock-up is a small
frame building oi Inadequate capacity for the present needs of this dis
trict, ami is by reason of its con
struction a veritable death trap, in
this connection we understand that
steps have already heen taken toward
having a district goal established
here; wc would feel obliged therefore
if your lordship would urge on the
proper authorities the necessity of
having this undei taken with as little
delay as possible n(nd we would recommend strongly that a fire proo:
building of proper dimension-; be er
ected forthwith.
The hospital is being well conducted, having proper sanitary require
ments, and every appearance of clean
liness. We find an unusual number of
typhoid patients therein, from outside
points, and wc would earnestly re
commend that the attention of the
provincial board of-health be called
to the necessity of having a local officer, prefernbly a physician, appointed with ample power to cope with
this or a,ny other epidemic in its in
cipiency, employing such means as he
may deem expedient even to the ex
tent of closing habitations, if neces
sary, as it is only along these lines
that the present condition of affairs
can be remedied.
The Public School we Und is altogether too small for the number of
children in attendance: for example
the number on the roll is 285, the average attendance is 260, while there
is accommodation for only 240; ad
ditions have been made, and the old
government ofiices are being used nnd
It is of the utmost importance that
a new building with modern appointments and with ■-■ capacity commen
surate with the growing needs of this
district be erected, we would therefore respectfully requests your lordship to call the attention of the proper authorities tn this much pressing
Permit us to congratulate your
lordship on the absence of crime in
this district as evidenced by no in
dictment being presented to us, and
to suggest that sittings of this court
be held here four times a year as ut
Rossland and Nelson, as a great deal
of litigation originates here, that
heretofore had to be tried at Kernie
or Nelson and we understand there is
already a great deal of pending litigation that would come before this
In conclusion we thank your lord-
hip for the kind words you were
good enough to say regarding our
listrict and humbly submit this our
JAMES RYAN. Foreman.

Twenty Seats in Quebec
A note of confidence ls reflected in
the despatches from Quebec, affirming
ns it does, the unity and aggressiveness of the Quebec Conservatives and
this will carry no small amount oi
uneasiness Into the Quebec Liberal
camp. At least 20 seats are assured
to the Conservative party in Quebec.
Even this minimum of seats in the
Conservative column would not begin
to offset the most cautious forecasts
of tho Conservative majority in On
tario, which it is confidently believed
will not he lesB than 4fi and possibly
as high as 50,
Wiped of the Political Map
The outlook is altogether favorable
for ai splendid victory for the Conservative party. From every province
in the Dominion come reports that
the government is fighting with its
back against the wall. Every day
adds to thc Conservative strtn;th.
Ontario, it is conceded, will do as
much for R. L. Borden as it did for
Sir James Whitney a few months ago
when the Liberal party was practically wiped ofl the face of the political map. The desperate stand made
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his leading lieutenants in Ontario does not
appear to have given the government
the smallest ray of hope. It has in
ftf^t, accentuated the scandal issue,
that issue which more than anv other
issue the Laurier government fears.

A Broken Promise
LnhoritiK mon who havo been um
ployed on tbe construction of tbo
Grand Trunk l'ucilic hfl-VQ bud u very
hard time during tbe punt BUmmor,
in mnny instances getting but a mere
pittance und In tome cnnoH only
their board. It wus promised by tbe
Laurier government, nnd tho Or Ami
Trunk l'ucilic tlmt waged paid lo laborers on tbe l'ucilic section would
he "tbe going rato." Half time dm-
tbe rainy senium, wna about oll
the men got.
Wonderful end Ingenious as are tbe
nautical inventions of the presenl
day, it iu doubtful if in ull the world
there ever was such a boo-t as the
government's own 'Speedy.'
It combines iu Itself nil the quali
ties of a private yacht suitable for a
minister of public works, a despatch
bout, an Ice breaker, a lighthouse
tender, u Hsheries protector, uml a
tow   bout.    Thus   much   for   a   few     of
its  many  capabilities  -n   times    oi
In time of wur it could no doubt be
of invaluable service as a gunboat, a
blockade runner, or a coal tender.
This acconiim dating craft was pur
chased second hand by the Lauriei
government from the American a in
1904, for the ostensible purpose o.
towing barges aud dredges in inlam
waters. The modest price war. $35,
Cn occasions when not actively en
gaged In dredging excursions it would
be possible to tako Mr. Brodeur um
his friends on a yachting cruise, tin
craft being happily furnished with a
few of the bare necessuriiw usuullj
found in tow bouts and occasional!)
in private yachts, to wit: a piano, a
mahogany table, (cost $100,) eleven
dining room chairs, (cost $132,) an
arm chair costing |lfi.
But we diverge On the way U(
from New Vork the Speedy's boilers
were found insufficient und she wat
forthwith put into the bunds of tin
Poison Company for repairs. Thesi
repairs cost $22,473. Included in thlt
account were a new electric light out
lit, costing $3,000, a new wheel houst
and chart rooms, a suite of apart
ments in mahogany and teak with
lirst cln,ss upholstery, at a cost ol
$3300, an additional bathroom, a new
refrigerator, a new pantry, and new
chandeliers in the dining saloons. Oi
course we always find these plum ne
cessities in a tow boat.
Then it was thought advisable In
order to complete ber as an uptodati
tow boat, that the crew, cook, stew
ardoss, waiters and waitresses should!
have livery in keeping With their stir
foundings. Tbe auditor's report consequently HJvehTs the following out
8 officers suits, eueli      $22.Oh
7 men's suits, each       I7.fii
Uniform for stewardess      25.01
S cOjps, each       3.01
7 cups, each          L.5<
17 reefers, onch     15~.0
The public accounts nlso show thai
these hardy mariners did not sulTet
for want of the    common necessities
I life, such as ornnjres, pears, plums
French peas, spring chickens, Radnoi
water,  etc.,etc.
In his testimony belore the publit
accounts committee the captain wn
asked to explain why he had paid 1
ents a pound for his spring cbicken.-
and other similar commodities equal
ly high prices.   His testimony was:
"1 will explain how the price wa.
increased. If you are dressed in tin
Speedy's outfit with brass button
and go into n store to buy chicken ,
(hey invariably charge you just about
double wliat  the chickens are worth.'
The result of this harrofrftig tale i
Lhat down to this year the Speedy
has cost the country over $100,000,
and in the winds of a man who
knows whereof be speaks, "she has
done about ,ns much towing :i,r could
have been performed by a private
craft for a twentieth of the money."
How long are the people of Canud
going to stand for this extrnvngan^
and graft?

Hurul free mail delivery has been

are doubtful seats, which .shows how
cleverly it is being worked as an election dodge
Aren't Smith Curtis and Duncan

die men who have been Instrumental
,n siwashing the electorate of Koot-
■.■nuy uud Vale Cn-riboo.

ue siwashed again in the next nonunion election four years hence.
On the question of an experimental
frdit tarm for Southern British Columbia, something which would be
of great benefit to all fruit growers,
Mr. GoodeVe bus declared himself.
His efforts at Ottawa will he din-cted
toward securing it.
Would it not have been better that
<ome of the money whicli the government has handed out with such a
ree hand to its favorites should have
iieen invested in an experimental
farm in Southern British Columbia?
The people of Kootenuy should remember that a vote for Goodeve is
i vote for a White British Columbia,
letter terms and honest und progres-
dve government.
On Monday next the election worry
.vill be over except in a few siwashed
constituencies like Kootenuy.
It is IH days until November 12,
the date on which the siwushed electors of Kootenay will say Skidoo to
vlr.  Smith Curtis.
Editorially speuk.ng, both thc London, Eng., Times and tbe Mornm<
fost are dubious of the success of tlie
Liberals  in Canada.
Only one day more and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and his grafting supporters
-vill be slated for u trip up Salt
Today there is no Liberal p< Ifcy
■xcept an appeal to be allowed "to

me of h burglar in a jewelry store

The oven doea

the oven heat,

\ Double
"Sask-alta" Double Duplex Orates are made

Ashes over one grate can be shaken without
wasting good fuel over other grate. No poking
