IN PROVINCIAL HOUSE
The Opposition up Against "Bet
ter terms"-What are They
Going to do in the
Matter?
Spi'riul 10 Tlie 1-roHp.i'tur.
Victoria, B. 0, March 24, '07.—
Not. a little to the disappoint*
ment of the general public, tho
expected debate on Premier Mc-
Bride's Better Terms resolution
did not utateralize this week.
Prom Monday it was postponed
until Wednesday, and on Wed
nesday it was again postponed
to Priday. On Priday the
matter was once more laid over
until next Monday.
Ths reason for these post-
, ponements of discussion on a
matter of such vital interest and
importance to this province is
not a surprising one—though its
existence is a lamentable com
mentary on the election methods
of Liberal politicians, and on the
deplorable lack of sincerity of
purpose, and absence nf patriotic motive or public spirit, obtaining un the Opposition side ol
the House. The plain truth of
it all is that Mr. J. A Maedonald
—"male and female" Maedonald.
as he is generally called nowadays—and his colleagues of the
Opposition are on the horns of a
dilemma.
If they endorse Premier Mc-
, Bride's resolution how are they
going to explain their objections
to Better Terms as shouted by
them in their campaign speeches
of seven weeks ago? And if
they refuse to endorse Premier
McBride's resolution, how on
earth can they explain their reasons to the.indignant people of
British Columbia''
These, (ihen, are the two horns
. of the dilemma, upon which the
leader of the Opposition and his
colleagues are wriggling. And
the government sits and smiles
grimly as it watches their torments.       ;
What makes the matter worse
is that the Better Terms resolution sent to Ottawa three sessions
ago was framed by Mr. J. A.
Maedonald and his colleagues
themselves. It will be remembered that Mr. McBride's government, on that occasion, politely withdrew their own resolution and, for the sake of a
unanimous representation of this
momentous subject at Ottawa,
supported the resolution of the
Opposition. That resolution
was not at all a bad one in its
terms. It wus such a resolution
as uo honest man, no self-respecting public-spirited citizen of
British Columbia, need be
ashamed of. But it made a
whole lot of trouble at Ottawa,
and Mr. J. A Maedonald und his
Liberal following gut a calling-
down from Sir Wilfrid Laurier
whieh they have' not yet forgotten. Tlie great leader of the
Liberal party of Canada said
things to them whieh scared
them cold, and from that day lo
this no British Columbia Liberal
has dared to suggest to Ottawa
that this province might he en-
tilled to better terms. And now
the McBride government, the
victorious Conservative party,
cooly asks these unfortunate
gentlemen to once more sacrifice
themselves for the good of British Columbia by again wounding
Sir Wilfrid Laurier'stender soul
with a better terms resolution.
No wonder they are unhappy.
The eight-hour smelter bill,
which Mr. Hawthornthwaite, of
Nanaimo, leader of the Socialists
in the House, hus been attempting for three sessions to. secure
the passage of, passed its second
reading on Thursday and wus
reported in committee on Priday
with only one slight alteration.
In connection with the second
reading, Premier McBride, in
•his speech supporting the measure, gave his reasons for so
•doing In a very clear and reasonable manner. He pointed out
that his government had consist
ent ly refused to allow Uie proposed aei to pass during previous
sessions: ihinr objections being
based, and rightly sn. mi the
fact that tho smelting industry
in British Columbia was noi then
in II position whieh eiiiilil lie
deemed ripe i'ursiieli legislation,
Al lhe present lime, however,
continued lhe premier, the rapid
development nf the mining in
ilusir.v has heen such Hint the
smelters, in common with all
other brunches of mining, were
now mi a firm ami prosperous
basis. Moreover, many of them
hud already pt'ai.iicull.v granted
the majority of their employees
Ihe reduction of lime whioh it
was now the object of this bill
lo guarantee by law, in shorl,
the development of the country
now jusl ilied the passage of a
measure the enactment of whicli
al an earlier date, had the government been weak enough to
yield to popular clamour, would
have been a serious set-back to
the principal industry of the
province.
Your correspondent has considered it advisable lo refer thus
particularly to this importanl
measure, on account of the present attitude in regard to its progress duriug the pasl week which
has been adopted by the Socialists and their newfound allies
the Liberals. The members of
these two parlies claim the now
assured passage of the measure
as a great victory for Mr Hawthornthwaite, who, to use their
own language, has "forced" this
bill through the House.
Now, nothing could be wider
from the truth than this assertion. To begin with. Mr. Haw
thornthwaite is not. and never
has been, in a position to "force'
anything through the House,
Secondly, Mr. McBride and hit-
colleagues were at no time op
posed to the eight-hour smelter
bill on its merits, and did not
hesitate to repeatedly tell the
House so. They fully admitted
the hardships inllicted by the
lengthy hours of labor on many
of the smelter employees. They
fully admitted that these hardships would be relieved by the
bill then sought to be passed.
But, as Mr. McBride and his
colleagues also painted out, tlie
duty of the government lies not
toward one class only, but towards all classes. And the pass.
age of Mr. Hawthornthwaite's
bill, fair and reasonable though
it was in many respects, would,
prior to the arrival of the mining
industry of British Columbia at
its present satisfactory stage of
development, have inllicted a serious blow on an industry whose
prosperity directly oi indirectly
affects the well being of every
person living in the province.
Today matters are different,
An industry which was Ihen in
its infancy has now achieved a
degree nf growth and prosperity
which places it upon atirm Inun
tint ion It is now iu a position
to assume responsibilities and
burdens the in llio tion of which,
ut its first inception, would have
at least grievously hampered
both it and the important provincial industry of which il is a
branch, even if it laid mil killed
it altogether. The unanimous
concurrence of both sides of the
House—there was not a dissenting voice on the second reading
—in the views expressed hy Mr.
McBride, isa sufficient guarantee that the time lias now grown
ripe for the measure becoming
law. There is no question ol
"victory" or "force" about It,
It, is simply a matter of a strong
und businesslike government
passing an act at the proper
time, instead ol at the improper
lime, as they were urged to do.

fm' his withdrawal frmu Iho ile
liberations of lhat body ufter il
luul become evident ihal it wus
useless to hope fur any measure
of lair treatment for Hritlsh Columbia. The Premier handled
his important subject ably and
well; the effect of the powerful
arguments he adduced in favor
of his resolution und in support
of butter terms being evident
when the lender of the Opposition. Mr. .1. A. Maedonald rose
tu reply.
Mr. Macdonald's speech was
probably one ul' the weakest
efforts in tlie line nf oratory
whicli he has ever inflicted on
the house. As previously outlined in this correspondence,
Mr. Maedonald was on the horns
of a dilemma, and a much abler
mil stronger man than the
leader of lhe Opposition might
well have confessed himself ut
a loss to tind liis way out of lhe
difficulty into which his own
political duplicity hail led him.
Mr. Maedonald, being neither
very able nor very strong,
sought ihal middle way which
is lhe chosen refuge of weak
natures.
He produced a resolution
his own, which, lor practical
purposes, consists of Iwo parts.
The first clause possibly interesting, even soothing, to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, but having no
conceivable bearing on the question of British Columbia's rights
lo better terms—was that the
house had no confidence in the
Hon. Richard McBride. The
second clause, presumably by
way of condemning Ihe first,
endorsed the Hon. Richard McBride's action at the conference
of premier's by reiterating his
statement made on that occasion,
to the effect that $100,000 a year
for ten years was not enough for
British Columbia.
Taken altogether, it was a
most remarkable resolution lo
offer to the house as an amendment; and Mr. Maedonald seemed
to have some dim consciousness
of the fact, for he labored over
it for an hour, with the only result of making bad worse. Of
course, the poor mun had not
dared to leave out the second
clause, and, as that annulled tlie
first, his position was most painful. He took finally to the desperate course of dragging iu
local politics, attacked the premier for being unconstitutional,
reproached Ihe house for having
la Conservative majority nnd the
country fur having elected it so,
ami concluded by Inking his seal.
A 10. Mcl'hillips followed with
it lengthy and able speech, uf

THE SHOE DERELICTS
Why Th y Never Have Old Shoes
or Bargain Sales in a
Sla'er Store.
"What do yon do with shoos
thnt become shopworn or out ot
style?" asked it customer at a
Slater shoe store. You never
have any bargain suit's in your
stores, Now 1 know something
about the shoe trade, and I can't
soe how you overcome lhe difficulty of stock accumulating."
Mr. Reid overheard the query,
nnd he answered it. "In the
lirst place we have a standard
price stamped line to look ufter.
We don't buy shoes from every
plausible salesman and thus accumulate a stock of conglomer
nil's. 'I'he Slater shoe stock is
carefully kept and carefully gone
over every week nnd every
month. Shoes that stay on the
shelves over a year are taken
uway, the brand removed from
them, and thoy go to the dealer
who makes n specialty of selling
shoes by lottery. He likes to
get the Slater shoe without the
brand, for it is the occasional
prize in tho lottery. But hy expert stock-keeping we seldom
have to send a shoe out of the
store as a derelict.''
