which swept them from office with an

Thu (aunt is as absurd as it is

is singularly constructive, progressive,   and   business like.
It is true that the record of the

significance to the Conservative plea
for tin purity of administration
which forms part of the Halifax
platform and to whieh the Conservative party is publicly committed.
But ihe Conservative party is not
responsible for the Liberal record.
It is tnu that with purity of administration scandals of administration cannot exist, and that when we

OURTIS IS A FAILURE AS A CANDIDATE, and knowing it they have,

him some ghost of a buow of winning against Arthur S. Goodeve.
Hats ofl to keen! Let every Tory

thing needful to make every last Con

British Columbia.
British Columbin, we have a population of ubout 2011,0011 whites, taking
tbe usual basis of reckoning there are
•10,000 white male adults. In other
words the Asiatic population in this
province, equals the white male adult
population and we find the Asiatic
population Increasing at 100 percent,
per annum, while the white population is Increasing at a little less than
12 per cent, per annum. I ask you in
view of these facts which no man can
gainsay, how long it will be before
western Canatln will be dominated by
the yellow races. Unless prompt and
effective measures nre taken to stop
tliis influx, 1 have shown you from
Quotations from the official request
of the House, the attitude of the two
great parties in regard to this question. On one hand, we have the Conservative lender, Hon. R. L. Borden,
working to keep Ibis a great Anglo-
Saxon country. On the oilier hnnd,
yon have the Liberal government, led
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, working nud
believing in the introduction of cheap
labor. I appeal to you as western
men, is it your desire that the great
heritage of our western country be
Inhabited by the Japanese, us favored by Mr. Fisher, minister of agriculture. Do we want the .lupanese with
his one acre grubbing day by day on
his hands and knees In order that he
mny raise the small portion of rice
necessary for bis substance or do
we want these great lands foi* which
wc have heen three hundred years
working mid building up, to he held
and dominated by the great. Anglo-
Saxon race? I safely lenve the de
cislon of this question In your hands.
Railway men and the Leinieiix act.
When the Lciinetix not was before
the federal bouse, the railway men,
whu form a large proportion of tills
constituency, ami, I may add, a very
large      proportion   of   the   respoiisil
fixed determination to win. As fains the Grits could, they gave us the
worst of the deal. They dealt the
cards from the bottom of the pack.
They dished us up dirt of the old
familiar Grit brand, and now let us
see to whnt extent it profits them.
On Wednesday evening Curtis eame
here for his meeting with J. A. Maedonald, K. C., of Rosslnud and P. J.
Deane of Nelson ns his bottle holders
and hearers of the bag with thc clor-
oform sponge in it. That meeting or
rather the atmosphere of it, would
keep Pat Burns & Co. tn Ico for a
century. It was a heartbroken, frozen fiasco. There was a haunting
senae of dissolution in the air and a
silence sueh as creeps on people gathered in a bouse where death is imminent. Tilings went well enough
while Dr. J. H. King wns speaking,
but when Deane opened the chill set
in. He spoke awhile in the bushed
silence of the hall and Bticcoedod In
saying nothing. He bad no mandate
to deliver. J. A. McDonald, K.C,
the leader of the opposition in Victoria, followed and the Indies reached
for thoir wraps, He said that Laurier was responsible for the 120 million bushels of wheat thnt they harvested in the west this season. That
the great fault of tbe Conservatives
was tbat they never defined their
charges against the government. Ile
admit led thai there was something
wrong in tin1 depart ment ot marine
and fisheries and that Goodeve will
make a splendid ease against the Lib
erals mil of the material lurnishcd
by tin famous civil service reporl.
But he coilld noi raise a cllOOf or a

request of the railway men, stating
that it. was only reasonable lhat.

and effecting such a large number of
people, wns bofore the bonne, that
their opinion should have due weight.
Finally, Mr. Borden submitted on ho*

Sir Wilfrid's  unfinished  work
Grafters,  tinilier thieves,    middlemen,
and politicians  want htm  to finish
Sir Wilfrid Laurier still begs the
privilege of finishing his worn.
His government has given to speculators only about 2500 miles of
western timher. There is a little
more.   Let him finish the job.
There ure more farm lands, and
more political syndicates like that
which got 250,000 acres in the Saskatchewan. Let the government finish tbe division.
The grazing lumls are not nil gobbled up hy irrevocable lessees. Let
that be finished.
Only five ascertained purehnsen of
land for government railways from
middlemen at 100 to 200*per cent,
rake-off have been reported. Let this
good work go on.
The cost of the transcontinental
hus only heen multiplied hy three.
Surely that is not the finish.
Mr, Merwin, of 187 per cent, ruke
off fame, has sold only $750,000 wortli
of goods to the marine department.
Let him finish.
Mr, T. L. WTillson's companies have
obtained only iJSOO.OOO or $900,000 on
the contracts which the royal commission so beautifully denounced. It
must not end there.
The ('anadian Fog Signal Company
has come in for only about $600,000,
with profits up to 1,000 per cent.
Why   stop at that?
Only two "Arctic" expeditions and
one "Montcalm" outfit have been
paid for. These things must not be
nipped in the laid.
At last accounts only 13 of those
astonishing Wallberg contracts were
