CRANBROOK, B. C, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 19U5.
No. 52.
CONSERVATIVE RAuLY.
Premier MoBride Addresses t Large
Audienoe at Cranbreok.
Hon. Richard McBride, premier of this province, addressed
u large number of the citizens of
Cranbrook in Wentworth hall on
Monday evening.
It was a matter of great satisfaction to the Cranbrook Conservative Association to be able
to say that the largest political
affair ever held In Southeast
Kootenay, was held on Monday
evening in Wentworth hall. A
large number who attended the
meeting were compelled to stand,
aud every available place in the
hall was filled.
James D. McBride, president
of the Cranbrook Conservative
Association, occupied the chair,
and in short and pithy speeches,
introduced the speakers.
His Worship Mayor Rogers
was first called, and in referring
to the visit of the premier to
Cranbrook, paid a praiseworthy
tribute to Mr. McBride and his
government.
Thomas Cavin was then introduced and was received with enthusiasm He dealt briefly with
events which have happened in
Southeast Kootenay since the
McBride government have been
in power, that the legislative
acts of the present government
have been fair, practical and
beneficial to the whole province.
The next speaker was the premier, tho Hon. Richard McBride,
who in part, said:
What you have heard from Mr.
Cavin, the mayor and the chairman would lead you to expect
great things from me tonight. I
want at once to warn you of a
great disappointment. The occasion is not one for the making
of any great announcement. I
may say that in passing through
Cranbrook, I thought it might
serve me a good purpose to become intimate with the people of
this neighborhood. I have been
privileged with the hospitality
of this town in days gone by,
but this is the first occasion I
have had of addressing a public
meeting among you. The first
items to deal with are some
issues that are most important
at the present time. We have
no election on at the present
moment; the hustings from the
Rockies to the Pacific do not
ring wilh the voice of the cam
paigner. The present time is a
period of rest, when business
seems to be taking on its old
wont and custom, when there is
a better feeling from one end of
the country to the other, and
when the people instead of giving up a great part of their time
to discussing public issues are
content to rest the business of
the country with the government of the day. It is a great
blessing, ladies and gentlemen,
at Christmas lime that I am able
to come here to this city of
Cranbrook and make this state
ment with some degree of certainty. I may have, perhaps,
been responsible in part for
times of unrest that have char
acterized the public affairs of
this country, but events have
proved a justification for what I
then did.
Now I might take the time
when McKenzie & Mann wished
to introduce a bill which would
give them a great section of land
and a great amount of money.
It is understood what this would
amount to. Taking the statistics
generally we found it ran into a
great many millions of money.
The bill occupied tbe session of
the local house for a period of
nearly five and a half months,
when it was thrown out for the
good reason that it was the duty
of the opposition to save a certain part of the country for the
people of the country, and not to
hand it over to railway land
grabbers. There was then the
general election and a change of
government.   The Conservative
|>a/ty came into power, at a
time when a state of great un
rest characterized tho affairs of
this country, which jeopardised
the credit abroad, and for a period of limo, on account of the
general stagnation in business,
brought the country almost to
the verge of, ruination. I was
charged with the responsibility
of forming a government, and I
formed one on party lines and
appealed to the country, and
while I got a majority of the
members elected to the house to
support the cause for which I
stood, at the same time particu
larly among the liberal members
there was grave fear that I
would not be able to carry on
the affairs of the province. I
have been able to carry them on
and so far have proved that the
government is in a most creditable position. I have one thing
to regret, that is, that the electors of Cranbrook did not send
me a supporter. From the intelligence that was to be found
on all hands here, and from the
tremendous interest taken by the
people of this riding in public
affairs, I had every hope thai
Mr. Caven would be elected, but
I found that my friend had been
beaten and that Dr. King was to
be your representative for some
time to come. The doctor is a personal friend of mine and a very
charming fellow. What bis fitness for parliamentary life is I
cannot say, but while I am the
first to pay a tribute to his many
excellent qualities, I do feel that
had Mr. Caven been returned
the member for this riding you
would have been better served
This is said in no spirit of malice
and with no attempt to do Dr.
King an injury. The doctor is
not here tonight. I do not catch
his sparkling eye as I should bad
he been here. However, Mr.
Caven has not been made your
member and consequently I
think you have been denied a
a thoroughly sound man, and I
am very pleased, ladies and gentlemen, tonight to be sitting on
the same platform with the man
who was the standard bearer of
our party two and a half years
ago. May he make a better job
of it next time. I feel quite satisfied that had my friends been
able to come here to assist him
Mr. Caven would have been elected.
One of the wort charges made
against us was that the election
of 1903 was brought on at an inopportune time. If you look at
the records you will see that we
gave something like two months
notice before the election took
place. We were compelled to
shorten the period originally selected owing to the pressure of
banking institutions. That was
a matter with which I had no
control. When I was called
upon to form a government the
money standing to our credit was
practically nil. You will remember of the balances we were accustomed to hear of standing to
the credit of tbe Dunsmuir government, and when I undertook
the responsibility of forming a
cabinet I thought we would meet
a great big credit balance, and
one of the first things I should
be privileged to do would
be to spend some of this
big balance and scatter money
in plenty for developments
throughout the province, foi'
bridges, railroads, etc. But
what did we find—the treasury
absolutely empty and the bank-
knocking at the door, that
unless we took drastic steps the
very credit of the province
would be refused and the lair
name of British Columbia dishonored in the eyes of the world.
To bring off the eleotions was
tbe one plan to follow, and I
brought them off as quickly as I
could. I shortened the period
one month, gave the poople two
months in which to make up
their minds. The Liberals have
harped on that string ever since,
and said that had MoBrido given
us one u.onth longer he wouh
have been annihilated. Whai
lias hap|)ened in less than thm
yams since that time? I suy
this to those of you who are Liberals and wish to be fair-minded
and wish to judge us fairly, if
two months is not long enough
for a provincial election to take
place, in what should be the period for the election for the parliament at Ottawa, the point
from where the nation is governed aud where problems of a
great national character are
threshed out. The Dominion
election only took six weeks
from the time of the first insertion in the Canada Gazette. You
did not hear the Conservative
party squeal, but did their best
to meet the unfortunate state ol
affairs. The great issue in the
western section was the Grand
Trunk Pacific. In the Lillooet
section wo are told that if you
would only vote for Laurier j ou
would hear the steam shovel inside of six months. Well, the
majority of people did vote for
Laurier, but we have not yet
heard the steam shovel and not
a spade of earth has been turned.
In this section of the country I
had the privilege of assisting in
the campaign with Mr. Mackintosh, and also in some sections
where Mr. Galliher and Mr.
Ross were speaking, and I found
that the great issue in this part
was the lumber industry and the
protection we were going to get
from the Liberals, and I was
told most distinctly that the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
was really a minor matter, that
if you voted for Galliher and
Ross your saw mills would be
operating from one end of the
country to the other, They were
elected, but for protection of
lumber you have to sit and wait.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, as
I told you, on coming into office
I had a very desperate financial
problem to solve. The credit of
the country was terrible, and I
brought off the elections, and on
being returned was obliged call
an early sossion of the legislature and we found that instead
of enjoying something like the
Dunsmuir majorities, ours was
a very precarious one, and instead of being privileged to
make appropriations like our predecessors for public works,
bridges, trails, eta,, we had to
impose fresh taxes. Well, a
good deal of criticism was shown,
but there was no time to spare
and, as a matter of fact bills
were passed and made law before the end of the year. Now,
in what direction did I go to secure this additional taxation?
Ladies and gentlemen, some of
my Liberal critics have asserted
that I went in the wrong direction to raise this money, and
lhat I raised it from those who
could til-afford to pay it, but let
me dispose of this from your
minds at once. Tho most prominent provision in these bills
dealt with taxation of the railway companies and the big corporations of British Columbia,
and resulted in increasing the
taxes lo the extent of 500 per
cent: I could point to one corporation formerly paying about
*18,000 or $19,000 to the treasury, who is now paying about
$100,000, and is doing business
loday. I was content that I had
taxed the field that was fruittul.
I also taxed the sawmills. I
might have gone in the direction of llie wholesale and retail
merchants; but the schome to
which I have referred to for
raising the taxes of the country
was directed against these big
corporations which up to the
time I took the responsibility of
government had substantially
escaped contribution.
Ladies and gentlemen, I be-
Hove that in what we did we
were doing our plain duty to the
tax-bearers. Of course the opposition would have done better.
Now, I say that if you look carefully over that assessment act
and the amendments you mus
agree with me that the scheme
was well founded and that the
taxes which had to be imposed
and as a result of its enactment
it did not fall heavily on the industrious section and did not affect the business equilibrium of
the country. I say also, ladies
and gentlemen, that consistently
with the increase in taxation it
was up to us to bring about some
reform in the civil services of
the country, the department of
public works, etc. In the department of public works I have
not been able to give this section
or any other the roads, bridges,
etc., that were yours as a matter
of right. It was not because I
did not want to do it, but because
tbe money was not in the treasury. But while we ure practicing every economy consistent
with our scheme of taxation we
have not been able to have public works constructed and to
give that attention to public affairs so far as the works department is concerned that was properly expected from us.
But. ladies and gentlemen, not
only do I find that I must in fairness to the people of British
Columbia cut down civil expenses and scrutinize the public
works department to see tbat
not a dollar is spent for which
good value is not received, but
as well did I fiud thai in the
school system certain economies
also had to be practiced from

NEW INCORPORATED COMPANY
The last Kootenay Power and
Light Company, Ltd., Will
Operate on St. Mary'i
River.
The object of the newly-incorporated company is to acquire,
divert and develop water power
from tbe St. Mary's river or any
of its tributaries.
The nominal capital of the
company is 250,000 shares of
one dollar each. And the following names are listed as composing the company:
Charles A. Mackay, of Nelson;
James A. McDonald, of Nelson;
Robt. Campbell, of Moyie; John
D. Kay, of Moyie; Frank 0. Parker, of Nelson.
It is learned tbat it is the intention of the company to dam
the St. Mary's river, near the
town of Marysville, and to render the water available by means
of a large ditch or flume, to use
the water and water-power for
electric lighting, supplying electric power to mines, for producing and compressing air, for hydraulic mining, irrigation, milling, industrial and manufacturing purposes.
The winter weather so far has'
been all that could be desired.
AT THE SULLIVAN MINI.
Manager James Finlay Resigns.
He Will Visit His Old Home at
Paisley, Scotland.
James Fiulay, who has been
resident-manager of the Sullivan
group of mines, has resigned.
His place as manager will be
filled by R. H. Anderson.
It is Mr. Finlay's Intention to
visit his old home nt Paisley,
Scotland. He will be absent
about three months.
We learn that at the Sullivan
group the output is about 600
tons per week, which is all that
the smelter at Marysville can
handle at present. At the mine
50 men are employed in taking
out ore and developing the
property, which is in fine condition and is as well timbered as
any mine in British Columbia.
A large amount of development is carried on by means of a
diamond drill. Three holes have
been drilled, southeast below
No. 5 shaft, to a depth of about
150 feet, and a fourth hole is being drilled. It is reported that
the drill cores show the existence of a large body of silver-
lead ore.
With the smelter at Marysville
working to its utmost capacity,
about 250 tons daily, the output
of silver-lead ore from the Sullivan group of mines will be as
large, if not larger than the
famous St. Eugene mines.
In 1906 the lead output of the
Kootenays will be doubled, and
the two largest producing mines
will be the St. Eugene and Sullivan group of mines, both located
in Southeast Kootenay.
Handkerohief Shower.
A very pleasant lime was spent
on Wednesday afternoon at the
residence of Mrs. Geo. Hoggarth,
the occasion being a "Handkerchief Shower," in honor of Miss
G. C. Williams, teacher of the
primary department of the public school. Miss Williams is
about to leave our city and enter
upon other duties in life, and
Mrs. Hoggarth took this opportunity of saying farewell. The
house looked beautiful, and a
large number of invited guests
were present. Miss Williams
herself looked chain,ing, and it
is with general regret that we
must say "good bye" to her, but
we wish ber the compliment* of
the season and many years of
happy life.
Mrs. Hoggarth proved herself
an adept In the art of entertain- THH PROSP10TOR, CRANBROPK, R i., DECEMBER 88. I'-W5-

SATURDAY, DKO  ?.'l. 19l»o.
To all our readers we wish a
merry Christmas. There are
many reasons, too, why wo
should bo merry. The people of
Cranbrook are a prosperous people, and the hope of the future
is limitless. All the phases of
Christmas festivity will be exemplified in tho rity of Cranbrook.
aaa
In ail civilized countries the
annual recurrence of Christmas
has been celebrated with festivi
ties of vaiious kinds. In none,
however, is it more joyfully
welcomed than in Canada.
...
Everyone seems full of the
Christmas spirit this year de
spite the fact that there are certain conditions which make this
season's holiday contrast with
that of previous years.
...
It is gratifying to note that in
the midst of so much Yule-tide
joyousness the children of Cranbrook will not be forgotten.
...
Boys drink themselves tight.
und their sisters lace themselves
tight and wear their shoes tight,
and it is a tight squeeze to tell
which habit is the greater evil.
...
Some people think they can
lead fast lives and then get reserved seats in heaven by leav
ing a few thousand dollars to the
church, after they have no further use for it.
...
Our   delinquent    subscribers
may have good  intentions, but
they are like alarm clocks thai
don't go off.
...
A monopoly   is   like  a  boy
Every man opposes it on gen
eral principles, until he has one
of his own.
...
A man who is too stingy tc
take his home paper would drink
sasafras tea until he became si.
thin that he would't make a
shadow. He would till himself
up on hot water and then try
aud cheat himself into the belief
that he has eaten a square meal
...
Do not   for a  moment loose
sight of the tact that Southeast
Kootenay, with its wonderful resources, must come to the front.
...
The reason some people never
get along any better is because
they sit down and dream of auto
mobiles when they ought to be
pushing wheelbarrows.
...
Any fool can give advice, and
he i> the one continually al it-
...
|.   Ability is the father, and op-1
portunity the mother ol responsibility,
...
Men are crowding in from all
local points to spend the holiday
season in town. We wish for
one and ull a good festive season.

Deafness is causodjby an intlamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Kustuchlan Tube. When this tube Is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
iiuperlect hearing, und when It la entirely closed, Deafness is the result,
and unless ihe inflammation can I..-

Continued from Pago 1.
ono end of the country to the
other.    And our school system
is yet one to be proud of.
Compared with that of Ontario, Quebec and other eastern
provinces; the state of Massachusetts, which educationists
place as the best school system
in existence; taking the conditions to which we are bound to
give consideration, we must be
pivon tho opinion of having the
best school system existing.
Another subject I wish to
speak to you about is tho financial problem wo had to faco.
Wo had to borrow $1,000,000.
We had to face a deficit, and we
had largo obligations to meet in
the direction of civil service and
public works. Wo borrowed
$1,000,000 at 5 per cent., and lot
mo tell you wo got every copper
of tho money. We paid uo com
missions. We got $1,000,000 for
$1,000,000. Now, our Liberal
friends in the houso say that before going east we should have
asked the people to subscribe
and you would have got It.
That is what we did when we
came into office, and the result
of this work is that today Brit
ish Columbia is in an enviable
condition. People who own real
estate in the interior tell us that
values are going up, prices rising. People who own sawmills
are operating them continually
from one end ol the province to
the other, and the mines of the
country are in a very splendid
shape. I think, t can say, from
my knowledge of what is going
on in the country that the outlook was never so bright as wo
find il for the year 1900. Today we have good times, far
better than we have enjoyed for
years and there is every prospect nt the approaching soason
of better times ahead and far
beyond anything we have on-
joyed before. Take trade people
generally, do you not find a
hotter feeling abroad. I have
travelled through the Boundary
country and every mining man,
miner, merchant and farmer
tells me that business is bettor,
things look brighter, and in all
fairness to the present government it must in some measure
be attributed to the businesslike
dealing with the conditions as
they had to be met and the
cournge with which it grappled
with fiscal problems so promin
ent three years ago have played
some part in the better times
now enjoyed. The general manager of the Bank of British
North America stated in an interview that business was never
better than it had beon in 1905
and that it was in a great
measure attributable to the fact
that the government endeavored
to carry on the business of the
country in a sensible fashion.
We have paid into the treasury
at Ottawa $15,000,000 more than
we have taken out, tho other
provinces have as you know
takon out millions moro than
they have put in. Laurior said
that it was all right, look at the
rich province of British Columbia and how well off everybody
is.
I want to see railroads built in
B.C., but I am not going to lend
myself to a policy that would
give us railroads to the ruination
of the credit of Ihe country. I
would rather gel down and out
of office tomorrow if I felt that
in order to continue in office I
would have to lond myself to a
scheme that would mean the
further prostitution of the assets
of tho country.
Now ladies and gentlemen, I
am.tiring you, but the chairman
and the other gentlemen were so
kind and nice when they introduced mo that I felt compelled
to elaborate on the local situation. I want to tell you that I
stand tonight in the position 1
stood threo years ago.
