No. SO.
MUNICIPAL BY-LAW NO. 34
There  is  no   Antagonism     Nor
Should There be by the
llineral Public.
An Inlorvlew appeared lust
issue iii the columns of
..ur Baker Streoi Contemporary with Mr. Gurd eon
corning tlio franchise n|i|ilioil
for by ilie Crunbrook Eluctt'ic
Llglil Co. Tlie "Prospector" is
not aware Hint there exists uny
considerable or importaul
amouiii of antagonism towards
the Electric Light Company, and
thinks thai tho "Old Mun" has
taken the matter too seriously,
Tho City Council recently
passed a by-law dealing with
electrie llghl companies, This
bylaw contains a number of very
stringent provisions that amply
protects the City in connection
with the use of lhe Streets lor
poles, wires etc., und it also pro-
rides Hint companies must ol>:
tain permission louse iho Streets
for those purposes. The Electric Light Company were on tho
ground and had their system in
operation long before the Incorporation of tho City, and tlio Electric Light Company believe that
they have in facl permanent
rights so far as llio system extends today. Nevertheless Hie
Company ore desirous of meet
ing tho City in nu amicable way
in lhe matter and are not setting
up this contention but are applying under the general by-law.
This is necessary, wo think, so
far as extensions to tlie system
go but may bo unnecessary lo
the Company for the system as
it stands today.
Another aspect of the matter
is that to run the plant profitable it has boon found absolutely necessary to obtain water
power and this menus a very
large expenditure of money
and tho persons who have boon
approached to provide this
money have refused to do so
unlil iho by-law permitting the
use of the streets is passed so
as to settle any doubts which
there might be in the matter and
make clear the right to extend
and also define a proper period
in which the rights are to last,
subject, of course, to the company complying with thegeneral
by-law and with the individual
by-law to be granted to tho compuny whioh is shortly to be submitted to the vote of the people.
This individual by-law has boon
voi y carefully prepared in the
interest of the City and shows
buyout] any question lhat tho
Company Is uotgetting anything
more than the City can gram to
any other oompany it chooses.
It is of considerable importance
to ihe ('ity that a good electric
light system should be available
mil only for illuminating but for
power purposes nn.l  before   this
can be secured it is absolutely
necessary to have the by-law
passed. The vote will lie taken
on this by-law, ou January 17th,
next.
These bylaws are always submitted whenever uny company
is applying for like privileges,
so Ihut nothing out of the onlill-
nary is ooouring In connection
with the Craubrook Electric
Compuny, as seems to have been
the Impression in the minds of
certain citizens The Prospector
bus looked into the mat tor carefully, antl has boon shown Iho
petition of the Electric: Light Co.
which comtirms Mr. Liurds.statement thatnoexclusivo privileges
were asked, and the bylaw as
advertised, confirms this. In
fuel they are getting in the way
of rights and privileges, just
about as little as the law allows.
We think that the  citizens  gen
orally will fool disposed to support Hie by-law,

It is announced that Spokane

A- regular communication of
Rocky Mountain Chapter R. A M.
was held in Masonic Temple on
Tuesduy evening. There WOl'eil

present, The annual election of
officers was held nnd resulted its
follows: Donald MacKay, '/,: .1.

Political Notes,
Just now Hie opposition press
is busy trying to bolster up lhe
leader of the party. They have
a way of saying tilings thut Mr.
Maedonald should have suid and
done, but failed to do so. They
attempt to cover these shortcomings of thoir lender by slandering Hie McBride government.
Lint slander, like chickens, all
come home, and in this case will
bo the undoing of the party in
the next election.
The Cranbrook Hern Id suys
that, in case of an election "it is
twenty to one that .1. A. Harvey
gets the nomination in this district. " Tho Leader will bore add
that in case Harvey does get tho
nomination it is twenty to one
he will he elected. Moyio Louder.
The voters of Crunbrook riding want J. A. Harvoy to represent thom in tlio next legislative
assembly, and I hero is no doubt
but Hint. Mr. Harvey will receive
the Conservative nomination,
There is also uo doubt but that
many political combinations may
be formed, by the opposition,
between lhe present time
and the holding of a provincial
election whicli will hnve ns
an objective the defeat of Mr.
Harvey, but those combinations
had bettor be brought in for
thoy might get frosted. The
Conservative voters of Cranbrook riding have dourly expressed their preference for
Harvoy and being human they
will naturally slay with their
friend.
The Herald suys:
"ll is preiiy generally conceded Ihni Mr Harvey will walk oil'
wiih thi' nomination for mombor
for the Consorvatatlvo party of
this district."
Now why does noi tlie Herald
make n clean breast of it
nnd uiliuit wilh equal frankness that il is pretty generally
conceded that if        Mr.
Harvey is nominated in lhe Con
sorvative interests lie will walk
olf with tho election, leaving his
opponent so fur behind the .lust
clouds that he will mil even
choke?   Nelson Canadian,

PUBLISHEK   AND   EDITOR.
SATURDAY, DEC. IV I'm.:.
THK successful politician is!
never caught napping.
That is the rule being followed'
by the Conservative party in this
riding. With all the hue and
cry about elections, by our linker street contemporary, the
Conservatives of Cranbrook
don't scare worth a cent.
A municipal election is near at
hand and it is time for our citizens to meet and select candidates,
The majority of our municipal
OfHoers in the past have been
worthy citizens, and have at all
times given the city a progressive government, but the time
seems to have emu.1 when our
municipal government should be
undertaken by men representing
more widely the various elements
lhat go to make up u prosperous
and progressive community, and
then our most prominent busi-'
ness men should endeavor to liml
time to engage in the active
work of governing our.'ity. lu
other words an effort should be
made to induce moro of our lead
ing business men to take up municipal affairs.
Grit newspapers in this province have, no doubt, succeeded
in their efforts to make the ques-
tion of better terms a party issue.
In other words have made thei
"big stick" whicli will hammer
them into their holes ut the next
election.
• .    •
Next month will bo u busy one |
in Cranhrook. The civic election
will take plaoe on Thursday following the second Monday. The
provincial elections will take
place, well, not as announced by
the provincial "grit" newspapers, but. when Premier McBride makes tlie announcement,
* a     a
The political conditions in
Cranbrook. at the presenl lime,
indicates that Ibero will be a
great deal of bitterness, and the
fug end of the "I Mil Man's" patty Is squeaking dreadfully.
a     a     a
Some men work overtime trying to quench a burning thirst.
It is a good thing for tlm conn
try that minority reports are not
received and sent abroad. If
such were the custom, why the
Liberals lining in the minority
would rule, thelosser would gov-1
ern lhe greater, the weaker try
to control tlie stronger. Who
ever heard of such proceedings

Nov, nn IWW, i'i
Unmasked.
Continued from Pace I.
it hus now* Iippii discovered that
liml election was won by the
most corrupt methods which
have disgraced constituencies in
Ontario. It is this sumegovern-
ini'iit which, through the organ
ol' u minister of iis own cabinet,
now tolls British Columbia thut
by "casting out I lie McBride
government our chances for
obtaining better terms at Ottawa
would lie much improved." This
is the application of the method
of llm "big stick" with more
than n vengeance, It is the most
I brazen effrontery, ll is saying
I in effect to the electorate of this
province, "If we cannot throw
dust iii your eyes; il our
specious but faithless and Indefinite promises will not win you
into our fold we shall force you
to conic" li is saying, "Wc
have tlie upper band and we intend to starve you as a province
into submission to our party, to
our methods and to our policy."
Lest there should be any
misapprehension as to the plain
meaning of Hon. Mr. Temple-
man's organ, it further goes on
to charge Premier McBride with
deserting the inter-provincial
conference, and it says: "Representatives of the dominion
government attempted to convince Premier McBride that the
final word with regard to better
terms had not been spoken by
the conference, but he would not
listen."
This may be true, but if so,
why had not lhat "last word"
been spoken? The con ference
was prolonged at least three days
to give consideration to the
claims of this province, as urged by McBride, and it adjourned
within a few hours after lie had
left the convention. It adjourned
apparently because there was
nothing more to do. The ultimatum had been given, the last
concession made. The attempt
to induce the premier of British
Columbia to go back to the conference stands forth in its true
light. It was that the matter
might be finally closed, the last
vole taken and that it might be
said by Sir Wilfrid's henchmen
that Mr. McBride hud, by his
presence, been a party to the
claims of his province. The
more one studies tlie action of
Premier McBride in tlie light of
the revelations made by the
Liberal organs tho more we
must admire tho astuteness and
penetration with which be saw
through the disguises of the
hypocritical members of the
Ottawa government who sought
by every moans to handicap and
compromise him.
As it is, the issue is clear. If
Mr. Templeman speaks through
his newspaper tlie people of
British Columbia know now
where they stand. As it is.much
against the wish of thefairmind-
ed politicians and justice-loving
citizens of British Columbia, the
determined purpose of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and his cabinet
lo force the question of better
terms into the arena of party
politics. And British Columbia
is ready lo try conclusions upon
the question —Nelson Canadian.
