IN   UBMORIUM,
Death <>f JamoH VV. Qalbmith ol
Moab, Wusl).. An old Pioneer nf
thu Oranbrook  District.
Juineu W. Galbraith, of Moab,
Wuflh., llleil at his homo in Moab,
after a lnnu Illness,
Mr. Galbraith was a pluncor of
Kooteuuy, having runic tn this dis

Cor many yeara Mr. Galbrnlth wns

er John Galbraith at Port Steele, ba
was also interested in i lie St. J OS
Opt) ranch, which wns inirchnsed hy
Colonel .lames Bilk or, und now call
cil  the City  nf Crniihrnnk.
During liis last illness his nieces
Miss Kdith Gftlbroitb, and Mrs Ida

tender und pleasant recollect inn of
him, for he was a man respected by
all who were acquainted with him.
POLITICAL POINTERS.
Two political pots, the municipal
and the Dominion, have been boiling
quietly during the pnst week.
Tbe latest development to strength
en the hearts of Conservatives for
the coming general election is the
breaking-tip of Mr. Fielding's solid
column in Nova Scotia.
We wonder what Sir Frederick
Borden is going to do with the Eye
Opener.
The Dominion Railway Commission are making nn inquiry into the
rates charged by the express companies of Canada,
Grit newspapers are making much
ado nbout Tory papers not taking
Dunsmuir to task re the hiring of
Japanese laborers. As a representative of the Laurier administration
Sir Henri Lotblnero, Lieutenant-
Governor of this province culled upon Mr. Dunsmuir to form u government. In reward for his fidelity to
the present government he was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of this
province. The smaller the wages
paid by the Wellington Coal company
possibly the larger the barrel for
campaign funds.
It is reported that a scheme is on
foot to divide the district of Oomox-
Atlin for political purposes. The
Liberals look upon the partition us
being favorable to their obtaining
nnother seat in this province. The
Tories consider that it is impossible
for the Grits to secure even one sent
in this province nt the next generai
election.
Laboring men in this province are
alarmed at the recent utterances of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier re the Influx of
Japanese. The formation of exclusion leagues should be curried out in
every section of the province. The
influx of Asiatic laborers is n menace
to a white British Columbia,
LET CURFEW KINO TONIGHT.
Every family should have a curfew,
which should positively "ring tonight" and every night if needed,
.says the Magrath (Alberta) Pioneer.
These curfews ure inexpensive, unit
can be home made, Take a piece of
siding two feet long and whittle one
end down to a handle; then take the
child that needs the curfew and bend
him over a burrel. Now take the
piece of siding In the hand and use
it as a clapper. Put it on hot. Hi
vide the strokes evenly and see that
none miss. Good for u boy or girl
up to the age of Ki, und applications
are wurrented to cure the most pronounced case of street lonling that
exists. The music the curfew makes
is finer than singing "Where is my
wnnderhtg hoy tonight?"
WHSTWAtU)  HO!
WESTWARD HO for December, bo
sides beiig well illustrated bus nver
a dozen excellent seusunnhlc stories.
An attractive cover design, in two
colors, by H. P, Judge n woll known
Vancouver artist, good paper and

acteristic study of the lute Henry
M. Stanley. Besides the regular
departments including 'Home ArtB &
Crafts', 'A Page for Cooks' and
'Helps to Smile', the Xmas number has over a dozen short stories
and poems. Altogether the number
should appeal to Western readers especially British Columbians,

NO CARDINAL   FOR    ENGLAND
London, Dec, 14.— Great dissatisfaction exists among English Catholics because uf the fact that the
next secret consistory, to be bold
Monday in Rome, will not result in
tbe elevation of an English churchman to the college of cardinals.
Since the death of cardinal Vauglmn
England has been without a cardinal
At the last consistory it was confidently expected that, this country
would be honored by the pope, but
the hope of the Catholics was deferred. Now another consistory is to
pass without the coveted representation in the college for any English
speaking Archbishop,

Rumors of Viscount Aoki's recall have been persistent since
ihe sending to Presldeni Roosevelt last winter of the alleged
ultimatum regarding segregation
uf Japanese school children in
San I'VaiHscu. At that time it
was declared that the ministry
of foreign tiff tii is was inclined in
hold Aoki responsible for the
trouble, and rumors of his recall
were rife in Tokio, That such
action lias finally been decided
upon has come as no surprise in
Tokio official and newspaper
circles. While the papers have
not permitted themselves' any
open expression of views on the
subject, it can be rend between
the lines thut the conservative
editors consider llie action a
wise one. already deferred too
long. Aoki's official relations at
Washington have been churoc-
terized as awkward In diplomatic
circles here. He is u delermined,
strong-willed man, admittedly intent iiiioii serving liis u.untry in
tlie best manner possible, bul
this virtue has been u deterrent
to his usefulness in the presenl
crisis. He belongs to the older
generation of Japanese states
men nnd, it is insinuated, has
often disregarded the instructions of the ministry of foreign
affairs, looking upon them as his
inferiors in wisdom and expert
i'lice.
The lloclii, one nf llle most
prominent of Tokio newspapers,
declares that Aoki lias of late be
come highly unpopular among
the officials nf the loroign office
because of liis disposition In act
independently and on his own
initiative, exceeding nr disio
gariling the instructions nf his
official   superiors.     Tlie   same

Laurier in a recent

the G< vernor-General, that eovern-
ment will never do anything to jeop-
; urdize the  British   Japanese  treaty.
Rush the Japs in aa fast as the

the whole of Canada will certainly

Nikola Tessla, announces that with
the eo operation of electric power
produced at Niagara Falls he could
send a wireless message to Mars. If
he would 3end several wireless messages to Laurier and the machine-
saying that no Jap immigrants are
wanted in this province, the dream
of a white British Columbia might
be  an  accomplished  fact.
Liberals may take what cold com
fort they can from recent evidences
of Liberal solidity in Quebec. But
there is no blinking the fact that
English-speaking Canada is weary of
the carnival of stealing at Ottawa.
The Big Seven of British Columbia
are now at Ottawa. They bail better make tbe most of their visit this
time, for they will never get a chance
to visit the capital again at the ex'
ponse of the people of British Columbia.

One can not enlarge his stature by

giant by an act of his will, or dwarf
himself to a pigmy by cultivating

at from $5 to $10 per acre in the
Cranbrook district.
The career of the Big Seven in
British Columbia recalls the old saw
about going up like u rocket,etc.

If Laurier and the Ottawa machine

Typewriter
has widened its market until it iilcludes the whole civilized world; has become the

1906, broken every previous
record of sales, because it
has from the beginning best
met every typewriter need.

it Ih becoming Incrousinnly evident
thut ut the close nf the next Domln
inn campaign British Columbia will
not be represented at Ottawa by seven supporters ol Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
whether that gentleman be then pre
mier nr lender nf the opposition.
Siaee 1904 thin province Ims hud u
solid Liberal delegation ut Ottawa.
It might have been thought tlmt a
phalanx sn strong and sn loyal to
Its chief might have boon entitled to
some consideration. The solid dele
gatlon frum Nova Scut in has won
for that province many mntorinl enn
cessions, chiefly hy wuy of public
works nnd appointments to the Civil
Service. But British Columbia's
solid seven bus won nothing except
u public affront frum the premier
when he passed over all tlie first
elected members nnd culled Mr. Templeman from the Semite to join bin
cabinet.
It is u remarkable circumstance
that not nne of tlie seven considers
himself bound in uny degree to represent the interests or wishes of this
province, or to do nny thing but
blindly and submissively vote as he
is told.
During the three years tbat have
elapsed since the lust general election
British Columbia bus hud a definite
issue with tbe Dominion government
on the question of the financial relations of the province uml the Dominion. It was not at the outset nor
is it now a dividing line between the
parties in provincial politics. As a
matter of faet when Premier McBride went to the conference of'Ca-
nadian premiers at Ottawa, be went
armed with a resolution that bad
been unanimously adopted by the
legislature of the province after a
resolution offered by J. A. Maedonald, leader of tbe opposition, had
been accepted by the premier. Since
then, it is true, there have been disputes as tn the premier's conduct of
his case, but at the recent Liberal
convention in Vancouver, at which
the Solid Seven weie present, the
Liberal party of the province merely
resolved to regret that the premier
had not taken a stronger stand.
That resolution may be allowed to
supersede Mr. Templeman's extraordinary stntement that Better Terms
is a dead issue. The Liberal party
stands committed to tlie maintenance
of tbe province's claim for Better
Terms. Tlie position of the Conservative party on the subject is well
known. The whole province then,
as represented hy the two parties, is
agreed as tn the justice nf the claim.
And yet of its seven representatives
at Ottawa whn are there for the pur
pose of safe-guarding the rights of
this province, not one has ever raised bis voice for her rights. This is,
as we have said, an extraordinary
position and nne that will stand a
lot uf explanation in the press and
on the platform when the Liberal
candidates next appeal to tbe constituencies.
Another question they will certainly be required to answer is "why
has tbe promises made by LibeiBl
candidates in 1904, that construction
uf the National Transcontinental
railway would be begun from the Pacific coast as early as elsewhere, been
not only violated but ignored?" It is
well known that railway construction
benefits and stimulates a country
only in proportion as it offers labor
to the people und a market tn tbe
producers. A line of railway piercing the Rocky mountains north of
the inhabited part of this province,
and pushing its wuy westward .with
imported labor, nnd with all its material  and supplies purchased outside

Btood by the   promise   made
respoct   to   thom by   thoir
members during tho last    en
Thoy have been deceived in tl

preeinto correctly the tempoi

know why.   ami    will be   at  leusl a
little harder to fool n second time.
There is another question, and it is
must unfortunate tlmt it should be a
political Issue at all, But tho re
sponsibllity for its having been
thrust into the arena of party poll
tics, lies wholly with our represon
tatlvos at Ottawa, tin- Solid Sovon.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier announced' that
Chinese immigration is not an issue
In the eust. The wishes of British
Columbia Liberals will prevail."
What are the wishes of British Co
liinibia Liberals? Hnve they ever
been plainly expressed to Sir Wil
frld  Laurier?
Tho fact that the Influx from Asia
that is feared now is not Chinese
but Hindus nnd Japanese,* doesn't
really affect tho question, The Ilin
du invasion may indeed have been
unforeseen, and ns tho Hindus are
fellow-subjects of the Empire,
they constitute nn exceptional dlffl
eulty. But the Japanese Immigration was foreseen. Steps to check
it were promised nnd tho country
was -told, were actually taken. But
since then, a treaty has been signed
between Canada and Japan giving
all classes the right to enter in
un Iiiui ted numbers. And this wus
done with the silent consent of the
seven representatives of British Co-
umbla, the only men at Ottawa
specially qualified or charged to
speak for this province, It is no
wonder that no story is considered
too silly which muy conceivably help
cloud that plain issue. Nelsou
