A Vain Leader
Sir Wilfrid claims to be the
Creator of Canada
The    Dominion   was   Obscure   and   Unknown
until   Laurier   came;   then   it   became
Important   and   Mighty
Government Agent keeps Public Money mixed
with his Stock-Broking Accounts;   Coglin
Methods too much tor Judge Cassels
Tho leaders ot tho two pnrtlOB
have opened their platform campaign
Mi. Borden held his Hrst meeting at
Urldgowater, a Liberal town in Nova
Scotia, Sir Wilfrid held liis at Sorol
a stronghold of his own party, where
there are many hundred government
employees. Mr. Borden discussed
and supported tho Conservative platform, and dealt forcibly with the
Government record. Sir Wilfrid talked about himself- boasted that his
government had done great things to
make Canada conspicuous, but kept
clear of details. The premier has already persuaded himself that Ue is
not only the greatest Canadian
statesman, but the first and only
one. He represents himself as the
creator of Canada and only asks one
more term to finish the job. To
show how inflated the Premier has
become one has but to cite bis state
ment at Sorel, that Canada is now
tho third commercial country in the
world, and the admiration of all
nations, whereas "in 1896 the
"position of Canada was thut of an
"insignificant colony, forgotten by
"France, scarcely known by England
"completely unknown by Europe,
"treated as a negligible quantity by
"the United  States."
This is surely the extreme of ignorance and of impudence. What has
Sir Wilfrid Laurier done to Canada
to justify him in so belittling the
country as it Was .during the first
thirty years after the Union? What
eluim has he to the right to brush
out of history such leaders as Sir
Jolin A. Maedonald, Sir George Car-
tier, anir the other statesmen ot then
day? Canada has followed a natural
course of development since 181*6 as
it did before. Its trade has developed like the trade of other countries, lt is decreasing this year
more rapidly than it grew, and falling faster than the trade of the
United States or of Great Britain.
Between 18il6 and 1906 Canadian
trade increased 143 per cent. The
trade of Argentina and of Mexico
increased in greater proportion. The
exports of Mexico and of tbe Argentine grew far more rapidly in that
decade than the exports of Canada,
and they are holding their own better than that of Canada.
It Was The Man Not   Thc   Country.
Sir Wilfrid's childish vanity works
two ways. Out of power he could
not sec that Canada was great. He
could not appreciate the service of
the Canadian statesmen who established the Union, who acquired the
Northwest, who added British Columbia, Manitoba and Prince Edward
Island to the nation, who opened ap
the Western country with railways,
established steamship lines on the
Pacific, and founded a national industrial system which Sir Wilfrid
has not dared to overthrow. He and
his friends were timid, sceptical and
unpatriotic, believing and declaring
it impossible to keep this country
independent of the United States,
jealous of every suggestion of closer
union with the Empire, ridiculing
thc loyal and hopeful aspirations of
patriotic Canadians ami doing all in
their power to make them despair of
their country, it is no wonder that
looking hack at the Canada of his
own former conceptions, Sir Wilfrid
should now picture it au a miserable,
pitiable, contemptible colony. But
the real Canada twelve years ago
wus very much what Canada is today in status and Influence, ami a
very much better Canada in the reputation of her public men, and in the
record of her administration. Her
public men had cut. a much better
figure in diplomacy than the present
ministers. Her tinancial credit was
higher and financial obligations less.
Commissioner Cassels has continued his Inquiry into the "lack of
conscience" feature of the Marine
Department. Mr. Merwin, to whom
the department has paid about three-
quarters of a million dollars, and
who was allowed profits as high as
187 per cent on standard articles
bought in Canada, was one of thc
witnesses. Unfortunately Mr. Merwin had no books or accounts. He
hns sent some records to New York,
and destroyed the rest. He has
burned all his old hank books, and
lias not kept the stubs. He wan
able to produce no record of any
kind that, would throw light on these
remarkable triinsactions. Judge
Cassels is beginning to meet some of
the difficulties which the Consorvn
tives have encountered. But he bus
this advantage over them, that he
has nut a majority of judges assisting the dealers in keeping tbe accounts dark.
Mixed With   His Personal   Accounts.
The Commissioner made some attempt tn investigate the payments
made by Mi'.  Boucher, the   Montreal
agent of the Department of Marine,
'lhis officer was asked about luu to-
cords. He replied "1 have no boons
ot account," adding that the same
hank book also contained liis stock
market brokering account, und that
it would be hard for him to separate
these irom the public business, as
they had heen mixed for eleven
years. He did not even keep the
stubs of his cheque book, and regularly kept his own accounts mixed
up with those ot the- public. This
state of affairs is very much as thc
Royal Commissioner described it,
and it seems to have gone on year
after year under Mr. Brodeur's management.
Another witness was 11. Coglin, of
the wholesale hardware firm, which
supplied the ice breaker "Montcalm"
With .some |3,000 cost of silverware,
including $118 worth of dish covers,
$148 worth of fruit stands, $96 worth
of soup tureens, $88 worth of tea
pots and coffee pots, $118 worth of
cream and milk jugs. The firm
charged $3,493, but when the Public
Accounts Committee was about to
take up the matter made a refund of
$1,172, The witness defended the original charge, and presented a statement charging $1,442 as his father's
expenses for visiting England to buy
the goods. It was suggested that
since' Mr. Coglin was going to England on his own business, $1,442 was
rather a large amount to pay him
for purchasing silver that cost in
England only $1,646. The Judge
figured that Mr. Coglin was taking
pay for ubout eighty days' work io
England, antl it was pointed out
that plated ware could actually be
bought in Canada of a quality suitable even for an ice-breaking boat.
It seems that the account as sent in
charged the government with the
goods at a large profit to the Coglin firm, and that Mr. Coglin who
gave evidence added 5 per cent, commission on the whole thing. The
Judge remarked that the account as
presented was "utterly incomprehensible" to him. There are many
things in many accounts that must
be incomprehensible to many persons
except on the basis of lack of conscience." But the Coglin account
was cheerfully paid hy the Department of Marine  without hesitation.
Sir Wilfrid informed the audience
at Sorel that the government was
quite capable of looking after its own
black sheep, meaning that if wrong
had heen done the government itself
would punish the offenders. So fnr
it would appear thut the black sheep
have iH'en rewarded with the best
pasture. They are the favorites of
the flock. They are the ones who
bleat most loudly that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier should have time to finish
his work. But it is encouraging to
notice un air of apology and confession in tho Government arguments.
Ministers are on the defense, and
tlml their time occupied with excuses
and explanations concerning charges
and nffenses brought home to them
hy their own former associates and
their own ltoyal Commission.
These Are Not Conservatives.
Mr. Fielding took up the parable
in Nova Scotia this week where he
made the audacious statement that
all the offenses brought home to
public officers were committed by
appointees of the Conservative Government. Even Mr. Fielding's estimates were not so ridiculously false.
Does Mr. Fielding say that the emergency food swindle was perpetrated
by a Conservative. On the contrary,
it was an old official who warned
the government in vain that the food
was bogus und comparatively worthless. Mr. Nixon, perpetrator of
frauds in the land office, is not a
Conservative, but was twice a liberal appointee, once before the offence
tind onco at a higher salary afterwards. Philip Wagner, swindler of
the poor Galician immigrants, who
put in his own pocket the hard savings entrusted to him by simple,
confiding people, is also doubly a
liberal appointee, having beeu plac
ed in office first hy Mr, Oliver, aud
replaced at double the former salary
after two terms in jail. Tbe Immigration commissioner who "made
money on the side" was a Liberal
appointee and has since been promo
fed. The postmaster who was dis
missed on the Inspector's recommon
dation for taking public money, and
who after additional campaign ser
vice was restored to office and paid
for thc whole time he was out , was
not. a Conservative appointment.
Dredging inspector Eastwood, who
took $3 a day for his service, farmed
out tho job at $1.25 a day to another inspector, whose whole time was
paid for hy the Government, and then
went off to his private employment,

Gives   Advice
Minister ot Labor tells
and Trust the Company
Montreal, Sept. 23, A special de
spatcb from  Ottawa says
"When Hon. Rltdolpho Liinieux,
minister of labor, arrived in Ottawa
this morning his attention was call
ed tn a report from Toronto that the
Railway Brotherhood had decided to
request   the   govomtnent   tu   intervene
in tin o, P. ii. machinists' strike.
Mr. Leinieiix expressed the opinion
that lu view of the failure to reach
a settlement under the Industrial
disputes investigation net. there Is
uot much that cun be done. Ile fur
ther expressed, as his personal opin
Ion, that if the strikers would go
hack to work unconditionally they
would receive every consideration
Sir Thomas Sliuugbnessy and Mr.
MeNiehol. He had assurance to that
"Proceeding,   Mr.   Lemienx   said   no
one    regretted   the   situation     more
than     himself,   but   nothing further
could be done under tlie   circumstances until  public opinion had  reached i
the point where compulsary arhitrn- ,
tion would be accepted by both cup- \
itul and labor."

Christ Church Cranbrook was the
Scone nt a very pretty wcihling ut
one o'clock Wednesday, when Mr. m.
A. Beale, of the linn of Beale .v
Elwell, was married to Margery F.

Mr. uiul Mrs. J. P, Armstrong. The

bride, who was given away by her
father, wore a dress of white chiffon

There are so many good reus, ns
for the defeat of the Laurier Govern
ment at the coming elections tlmt
the supreme issue before thr Canadian people is often obscured or
overlooked. It is our national life
our character ns a people.
We are surprised to see that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier hus attempted to
dispose of Mr. Borden's arguments
with a sneer, and the Liberal newspapers and speakers, lollowing his
lead, hnve set up the cry of a "Slander Campaign". This cry has been
heard before. It was used with
great, vigor hy Joe. Martin when his
minister of mines attempted to Impeach the Hon. "Joe."
Political Brieflets
"'lhat, my sou, is not thc soughing ot the wind against the telegraph wire, doleful though it sounds,
it is the political howling ol the
pot-woilopers and hunters after the
Grit ttesh pot, worshipping their
good God graft, and praying for
clean government' my son. it would
beggar them, and it will before long,
"lis coming. Sonney."
"Dad,  what is   the     difference between   a   scribe    and   a     phutiseeV"
'The same   difference   that   exists
between a Grit and a Grafter.    Now
off to bed with you."
That "flayed-hlm-allve" speech of
Smith Curtis at Kaslo against some
Gritlet who charged him with being
two shades and a half darker in
moral color than the Angel Gabriel,
may have been tine Haying, but it
was extremely ill-judged campaign
>rutory. The Grits of Kaslo ale
famed for their facility in turning
each other on a gridiron without
caring how much of the other fellow's hide may stick to the implement. They'd just as soon roast
Smith Curtis as one of their own
brethren though they particularly
love the home-made article when it
comes to straight cooking. Maybe
Curtis may fall a victim lo thoso
political canihals. He bus started
the tire, anyhow.
Wonder will Smith Curtis turn up
in Crunbrook and take the platform
when Qoodeve   visits   us on the 30th
if this month? So far, by diligence
and assiduity, he has succeeded in
keeping clear of the Tory nominee,
Curtis ought to occur on the occasion if only to allow the public the
chance of finding out through his own
lips that there is not a word of
truth in the report once so industri
iiisly circulated about Goodeve and
the militia.
The Hon. R. L. Borden in his
speech at Halifax said "How far
restitution may he possible we do
not know. U fraud or imposition
have been practised, if the trustees
aud servants of the people have con
spired to plunder the interests they
were bound to protect, there must
be a remedy for thc wrong, and we
have pledged ourselves to pursue
every legitimate menus of
which can be made uvailabli
interests of the people nml
tently with the principles of
tlltlonal government.'
This is the Borden bayonet that is
levelled at the breasts of the re
crennts who have plundered Canadn
for the past twelve years.
No wonder that Smith Curtis lost,
his temper at Kaslo. Not a single
Liberal was at the boat to meet him
and he had trouble in getting a
chairman to preside, this indicates
that he is not in touch with his party in that city. Where wns the
famous   John   Keen?
Irish point lace and chiffon
tulle veil, and wreath of
blossoms. She carried j
bouquet of white roses aud lilies,
and made a sweetly pretty bride.
She was attended by her sister, Miss
Winnie Armstrong who looked char
mlng in a pink erline with hat to
match, The little flower girls Elsie
Taylor, niece of the bride, and little
Muriel Wallinger, niece of the bridegroom, carried baskets of flowers
and ferns and did their part well
forming a pretty bit of coloring.
Mr. Lhns. Cock was groomsman, and
Mr. C, H. Dunbar, usher.. After the
ceremony, Mrs. Armstrong received
the guests, who numbered about a
hundred nt her home on Burrell
avenue. She wore a black eolienne
gown with cream lace trimmings.
Dainty refreshments were- served,
Mrs. Armstrong makes a model hostess. Mr. and Mrs. Beule will spend
the honeymoon in Calgary and the
coast cities. On leaving for Calgary
the bride wore a suit of blue vicuna
cloth, witli straw hat trimmed with
white silk and plumes. On their
return they will reside at Lumsden
street, where Mr. Beale has built a
handsome residence.
The presents to the bride and
groom were numerous and costly,
evidencing the popularity of the
happy young couple.
Dr. Taylor, and Mrs. Taylor,
sister of tbe bride, came from Golden
to participate in the ceremony, looked very pretty in un exquisite costume of arise silk.
The church was beautifully decorated with ferns and flowers. A handsome floral bell was suspended over
tbe chancel. When the newly wedded
were leaving tlie station, the bride's
bouqiiet was thrown and captured
by Miss Gurd. "Coming events cast
their shadow before."
Mr. Arthur Burge and Miss Olive
Ryekman were united in marriage at
the home' of the bride's parents at

they are going to look, to the great

Portlund for the sake of loyalty
wheu the portlund terminus means
dollars and cents to them. Ilealdcti
that, the winters arc the great
drawback to freighting across the
lower provinces, so thnt those in
power will boom this city mid those
who would work for Canadian ports
are agreed that the business will
come to Portland iu spite of them.
No one doubts but thut the load
will be put through now For years
tentative plans have been in exis

cepted leaving practically nothing to
prevent the work ol extension start

Shut Out   Conservatives    Kor  Years
Nothing as far us can he seen, can
stop the extension, (or the victory
of the Liberals is for five years, four
years is the shortest, and by that
time the Canndinii Government will
be pledged to carry it through, and
in the event of u Conservative vlc-
tory four or live years hence cannot
prevent the completion of this great
all Canadian transcontinental railroad. As un adjunct to this Important railroad project, the double
tracking of thc present Grand Trunk
between Portlund ami Montreal becomes a certainty.
A Clean Sweep For Liberals
lt was a Clean sweep foi the Lib
ernl party, and means the building
o! the loml. "Said .1 F Masters,
president of the Canadian Club, ton
Boston Journal reporter." but it is
not nt all sure that the Grand
Trunk will be permitted to use
Portland as its terminus. The building of the toad will he a heuvy
burden to the people of Canada, and
its i.nly natural that they shall de
nuind any advantage seeming from
it shall go to them mid not to a
part of the I'm ted States
"The railroad, ol course desires to
muke Portland its terminus, Geographically it is situated just where
Ihey      want       it,        but      there      ai'0

party was elected to build the road,

pocket. It may be observed that
number 77 and 7S are lingering
about Ottawa awaiting their turn,
A large number of Government
supporters of the last Parliament
have failed to obtain a nomination
from their patty. Among these are
Mr. Kennedy from New Westminster,
Mr. Hall of Peterboro, Mr. Wright
of South Renfrew, Mr. Htcwart of
Ottawa, Mr. Rosa of North Cape
Breton, and Mr. Wilson of Russell.
These changes have made trouble in
nearly every ease. In other constituencies as North Renfrew, the
man who was counted on to mako
some show of fight against the current of public opinion has refused
the sacrifice. The grafters are on
tbe run.
Two amusing episodes have occurred in the party press. Just before
the close of Parliament thc woolen
manufacturers whose industries is in
a bad way, asked for tariff relief.
The Toronto CJlobe, chief organ of
the Government party, attacked the
manufacturers for their demands,
and praised Laurier for rejecting
them. But the Government candidate in North Lanark is a woolen
manufacturer, and it wus necessary
to conciliate him. So the day after
his nomination, the Globe devoted u
leading article In the woolen Indus
try, praising the Lanark candidate
as a model of noble tinselllshnesK,
and promising that, since the woolen
industry required relief, the Liberal
party would give it.
The other rase is that ol a Government organ at Ottawa whieh attacked Mr. Foster for speaking fav
orably of the Prince Edward Island
tunnel, declaring thut the work
would cost fully f iiiii.iHMi.iinu and wns
the worst lot ml of wild cat scheme.
This made trouble in Prince Edward
Island, und the Free Press was seen,
with the result that in less than a
week) it published another article,
stating that the first one was not to
be taken seriously and that the only
hope for the Prince Edward Island
tunnel was from the Liberal Government.
