A iiiiii- later mi 1 wish lo allude
in Hu- reasons; bul I am bound
m say lluit, from the meetings
whieh we have held, Gut li at the
coast uud in llu.- interior, until
we reached this Inir city, there
is every possible ground fnr the
belief and expectation thai at lho
next general elections the province nf British Columbia, will
absolutely reverse that verdict,
nnd I think under the circumstances, and having regard to the
service which has been given
you by the seven gentlemen whom
you elected, and by the esteem
which they nre apparently held
liy Iheir lender, 1 think it would
lie only just thnt you should dn
us the service nf sending u solid
Conservative delegation of seven
members to support us in Ihe
next parliamentary elections.
.You would be only treating us
fairly in this regard, and under
those coudilinus. I should be disposed tu let by-goues be by-gones
and eall quits with this fair province, A word or two concerning
lho stories that are circulated
more or less in the Liberal newspapers throughout the land, relative to the standing capacity of
the two parties in the house of
commons today. The comment
is freely made in certain Liberal
journals. 1 am alluding more particularly to those whieh depend
upun the patronage '.hey expect
from the government at Ottawa,
that thu government opposition
iu Ottawa today does not alford
iho material out of which a government could he constructed.
I am not very much disturbed
about the comments of journals
of that kind, who dare not, for
their very existence, say one
word in just criticism of the men
wim are maintaining Ihem by
government patronage, but let
me suy, so far as that is concerned, in the first place that after
the next general elections we
shall have not the seventy or
seventy-five men who now sit as
my colleagues on the left of the
speaker, but we shull have fifty
at least additional men from all
parts of Canada, from the province of llriiisli Columbia nud from
other provinces in Cunadu, from
Ihe Atlantic to the Pacific, and
with these men there will certainly be no possible difficulty in
funning an administration which
will in every wuy command the
confidence nf the people of Canada, and whicli will be worthy of
the grout country whicli it is to
servo. These journals remind
me nf a story which was told me
hy a friend nf mine. He told me
Hint in all his public experience
as a speaker, be was only taken
back un one occasion and thai
wns nn :iu occasion when lie was
nut speaking un ll political subject, lie said, on one occasion
wheu addressing uu educational
gitihoring In the United States,
mi tin- subject nf corporal punishment iu schools, bo remarked
thai mi only nne occasion wus lie
ever punished ill school, and that
In- wus thou punished fur telling
iho truth.   A liitle Highlander
ill lhe rottl'of Ihu bull culled nut
"And il cured yuu, my boy,
iinin'i it." [ do not know whether
anything will cure those Liberal
journals from lolling some of the
stories they are now telling, but
I think thut is the best answer
tn thu comparisons they sometimes make between the Conservative members und the Liberal members who sit in parliament today.
I wus not particularly delighted with the selection yuu uiiiile
nf seven meu lu represent this
province in Hie parliament of
Canada, uiul I uu: bound In suy
Hint Sir Wilfrid Laurier sueiiicd

who have shown their independence. What was he looking fur?
I presume fur men uf honesty
and capacity lo lill each one ut
ihose Cabinet positions. Ilo
looked nt these men, and after
looking at them ho passed by,
mid selected Mr. Pugsley the
Conservative Candidate fur St.
John in lSilll. He selected Mr.
Graham, who has never hold a
seat in the Parliament of Canada.
1 venture to say that tho course
taken by the Prime Minister of
Canada iu selecting men to till
his Cabinet will not lay very
well in the mouths of these
gentlemen, to say for the future
that thu men behind Laurier are
su worthy of all commendation
und thut the men who sit to the
left of the Speaker ure not to be
regarded in tho same light.
His attitude in this regard reminds me of the story of the
prisoner who had uo council to
appear fnr him. In must courts
the practice is in a case of this
kind to appoint a lawyer, or two,
—junior members of the Bar,—
inexperienced men. On this
occasion two of these men were
appointed to defend the prisoner
and when the prisoner was
brought before the Judge, he
looked at the two counsels
and said, "are these men to
defend me?" "Yes" said the
Judge. "Both of Hoem?" "Yes"
the Judge answered. "Then,"
said the Prisiouer, "I will plead
guilty at once."
There are some questions of
special interest to the people of
this Province, upon which 1 have
said a few words at the other
meetings lield at other points in
the Province. Tlie lirst is the
question of "better terms" for
this Province of British Columbia.
The questions uf financial
relations between British Columbia and the Dominion of Canada
were brought to my attention on
many occasions before tlie
general election of 1904. They
were brought to my utteution by
Mr. McBride and his colleagues.
and by other parties who took an
interest hi this question, and
when the general elections of
1004 came on, in response to a
question addressed to me from
I think, Sir. Charles Hibbert
Tupper,—J sent a telegram to
the people uf this Province in
which I declared Hint if the Conservative party were returned
to power in the general elect inns
then ensuing, il would he pre
pared tn grain lu the people uf
this province a fair inquiry as tu
whether ur nm. having regard tu
the clrcumstauces, the financial
relation between British Columbia uml the dominion, should nut
ho allured, iu fuvnr nf Iho Province. I uiiiile Hint promise tu
thu people uf llriiisli ColUlllbill
because I thought a fair case
fur inquiry luul been made mil.
and fur the further reason Hint
1 thought iu u matter uf this
kind thu Dominion uf   Canada

divergence of interest und some
actual divergence uf sentiment.

One more subject which is of special
Interest to uie, and I think of great interest in the representatives of the
Liberal party in lout: with respect to
buildingu transcontinental railway. A
contract wus mado by the Government
of Camilla with the Grand Trunk I tail-
way Cumpaiiy whicli bus been ratified
by the people of Canada anil must, he
carried out by any Government in this
Country. It must he curried oul fairly
and loyally because the public only
demand ibis should hi- so.- but it is not
amiss to suy that you were deceived as
to the issue in HUM. What was lhe
assurance you received by the gentlemen who were elected lo power ill 11*04';'
Vou were assured Uuu the transcontinental railway would be commenced in
this province ut the same time it was
commenced ill the Mast. Contracts
have been let between I'ldmonton t nil
Winnipeg, und between Winnipeg and
eastern points, but no conli-acts have
been lei wesl of I'dilionton.
What is a railway? It is a great
modern highway of the world. More
than tliree-lifth of the railways of the
world ure now operated by the Stale,
und not ii private enterprise, In lhe
United Stutes und Great liritaiii the
the exercise of this National function
bus been committed lo private corporations. The State in I 'imadu owns
about 1700 miles of railway. We took
the ground in 11104 that this railway
should he built as agreul national highway, that the. Government of Canada
would proceed to build this railway
using the money of the people of Canada
and providing nine-tenth of the cash
anil credit necessary for the building of
this great national highway. You are
gelling no more control over the road
than you have over any other roud in
this country under the general law of
the laud. Tbe time has come when,
under such conditions as these, it would
be better for the people of Canada to
supply not only nine-tenth but the other
oiu'-lenlh of lhe cash and credit
necessary to build this railway, and to
build it us an undertaking of tho people
and keep it. for all time to come, as a
great national highway under the control of lhe people of Canada. Wasthat
uot a reasonable proposition? Would
not any one of you. in dealing witl) your
private affairs, deal wiih them according to the business principles involved? The people of Canada in
owning Uuu road would havo complete
control over il. even if they should
lease it to one of these great corporations.
What is ii Uuu makes n millionaire
oul or lhe inun who Invests his money
in a railway enterpri-c? It is the in-
llux of sottiers for the development of
country, Ihul Hils railway been built
as u iiatlona) highway, ihen the people
of Canada would have had control over
the rules und uiuiiiigeiuent of Hie railway, and it would thus become u
national asset, and the growth ol the
country would thon accrue to Hie hem-
III id Hu untry uml not to Hu- bone-
Ill or Hie Grand Trunk Paelllc, Tho
people holding slock would then roup

development of this country Instoud of

when the country has provided by Ils

I will noi take up much time tonight
in discussing with you the record of our
opponents, but will leave that lo Mr.
tlergeroii, who will deal with it ably. I
am glad lo have him ou the plat,
form with me tonight in order thut he
may Illustrate to you this mutter.
Let me say in the first place, I do not
think in tbe history of any country
which has representative Institutions an
many scandals have occurred, connected
with the administration of public affairs
us have occurred in respect of the government al Ottawa in the past four I
years. It would be Idle to attempt te
give these In detail. We have to divide
them up from meeiing to meeting in
order to impress the uiaguit mie of t hese
scandals on the people.
Let us look up for a moment at the
three essentials whicli must be observed in making up a democratic government. There must be honest appropriations und expenditure of public money -
decent selection of men for public ollice
und purity In elections. Has the Lib.
erul party since thoy euine Into power
in 1NIIII lived up to any one of these
standards? When the Conservatives
were ill power the revenue was Uli to .'IS
million dollars. What bus been the
revenue for the pnst four or live years?
OS und even so millions of dollars, What
lid tin; Conservatives do with revenues
one-half us great? They built theCana-
iliuii I'ucille Hallway, developed cunuls
erected public buildings, mul mude extensive appropriations to ligbl bouse
service. Look und see whal the present administution have been doing with
tlie present revenues. They have un-
ileriaken Hu- construction nl a railway
from Winnipeg to Monuton - hut it is
not yet paid for. The public debt is
eight million dollars greater today
than when Ihey took the reins. They
devote lurge sums ol money to works
which are of no public interest, sometimes to secure the election of u particular candidate, or uiil some party friend
lo dispose of his timber limits, They
have built wharves where there Is no
water, Instead of making purchases
direct, ihey purchuse through another
purty paying enormous commissions.
Take the ease of tho .North Atlantic
Trading Company. The money of the
people of Cunadu wetit out to tho extent of 4*160,1*00. To whom did it go?
Is there ii Liberal here who can answer
that ijuestlou? Tho   inlormuiion   was
refused 10 your I'epl'e-i'lltu! ives.    They
told us iii parliament tliey had mado ii
contract. Wc asked theiti to bring the
conirui't down: Ihey refused. Wo
forced them lo bring ii down, uml for
very sliauie s sake thei brought il
down, with the names torn oil. We
forced thorn to bring down u correct
copy. Wc ihen discovered Unit this
compuny luul boon urgaulnud on the
Tth of Juno lu ono year, whereas the
comraet   had  been  made on lho I-l nt
lh inber   lhe   previous year.   This
contract, purporting lobe Bigned by
president and directors of Hi Is company
wa- mado six mouths prior to the date
tbe company was actually Incorporated,
What Is the meaning ot that? What
other evidence is there of the Intention
loeovoriljisolnelliiiig? We insisted Uiul
the nu ims of the men interested in this
company bo hiouglil over from Great
llrlluln. Who were they? Three solicitors, clerks iii llu-east end of Loudon.

iffotidoni, condoned their offm -, uml
ihey were allowed in go unpunished,
I have spoken to yon of Hie railway
us a greal modern highway. I took the
ground in Halifax thai He- railway
should be conducted hy un [ndepon-
ih-tii commission: whicli commission
should lie extended unit divided in two:
one mi executive nml one u tribunal, in
whose hands the control of the enterprise should be.   Tbo story i- told of u
llllppul'of I iiiii tier over I he Intel Ion iill
Hallway who shipped   ti   cut-loud   of
lumber TO mile-.    In  tb ut-se   of
transit ii   bird  had   built   Iter  nest:
hutched her young and the young birds
'0 almost   ready    to   liy   when   Hie
lumber reached ils destbullion.
A system should be orguitlseil  which
would   slifegnuril   111-'   | pie    III     tills
country; the employees of the railway
uud the travelling public.
Another matter of which I wish to
speak i.-1 lie organisation or a national
'.vsteiu of telegraph und telephone service. We in Caiiadaowti 7.null mile-of
such a system In parts of the country
where a private enterprise would not
receive adequate returns. Why should
Hie people of Canada not advance money for such a system where ii would
make good returns? The post olllee
vice has become a govurnmonl monopoly. What is the object of the post
(Mice? To communicate Intelligence to
person- at a distance. I- not the object
oc Hie telegraph system the sumo? The
telephone, too, is for lhe same pitt-poso,
by u more expeditious ami convenient
method. Cunudu should cstublisli a
iiiitionul system of lolegriiph nml telephone.
Hue more subject I must spent-Inyou
about. Hie civil service reform. This
mutter does not receive much attention
In lhe western country, whoro every
nne is so busy, us il does ill llle en-t,
Men must apply  the sumo methods on

"Get an advance, skin the shoes, or lose money I" This
was the slogan of the American shoe manufacturer at the
opening of the season.
Canadians who buy imported shoes pay one dollar duty.
a quarter ol a dollar more in higher wages, or $1.25 in all for
their lack of perception. They fine themselves 33 M per cent
and get shoes which the made-in-Canada shoe can defeat on
even terms in foreign markets.
Then the imported shoe may hare been "skinned''
of value to partly* meet that handicap of $1.25.
Follow the shoe market, and you will find that the
honest United States shoe manufacturer has either withdrawn
from the Canadian shoe market or raised his price too high.
Money cannot buy, nor can artisan devise a better shoe
than that upon which are stamp this "Seal of Certainty"—

Resources of Southeast Kootenay
During llie pusi twelve years
it bus been Ibe uiul ol the Pros
pector In show to llio outside
world the wonderful resources of
Southeast Kooienay. Thai Its
efforts have been appreciated is
bourne oul by llio fact tlmt iberc
has been, especially during Iho
pusi two yours, much inquiry
from the outside world for
additional Information regarding
the district. We have always
believed that Southeast Kootenay is the richest mineral soetton
of the province. The production
of Silver-loud and coul for the
past few yours show tbal this
statement is made oil facts, and
while the district is handicapped
by luck of transportation, we are
satisfied that tbe mineral is in
the mountains only requiring
intelligent exploitation to make
il available.
According to the official reports
of the Minister of Mines, this
district is the largest silver lead
producing district in the province. A large number of prospects are being developed, some
have reached a shipping stage,
und a number of mining deals
involving large amount-* of money
have been consumated, und tbe
indications are thai there will be
more activity in mining development than over before in the
near future.
