Mr. Goodeve these two constituencies
havo taken their stand detlnitely with
tin- three large nml important ridings
on the coast, in opposition tu the
policy ut tho federal premier towards
this provineo, The result is n tleclar
atlon by them ou the question of Oriental immigration, Rotter Terms nnd
the Bocurlty ot our provincial resources against the encroachments of the
Dominion power, Hul it is mure than
that. It is nn uumistakenblo expression of dissatisfaction with the maladministration uf the country's affairs* during tho past live years of
disapproval of tho corruption which
affected every branch of the public
service; of dissent from the practice
hy which resources of Cnnndn have
been seined and administered for the
personal advantage nntl benefit of thc
members of one purty.
rt Is impossible to mistake the
meaning of the Conservative victory
In these two British Columbln constituencies, the election was a Tree
and a fair nne, apart from the bids
which the government candidates
were able to offer the public for support—oilers which were bucked up by
the endorsement of ministers of the
crown. It was a fair election nnd
the representatives of the administration were defeated. The government
and the Liberal machine at Ottawa
were apparently satisfied that the electors would he oppressed by a fooling that it was useless for them to
oupose such a majority as was given
Sir Wilfrid Laurier by the country ns
a whole on the 26th of Oetober, and
would offer nn serious resistance to
the ministerial nominees. No large
expenditure of money was therefore
deemed necessary to retain these
seats, und the Liberal mandates, with
the immense advantages they enjoyed
by the triumph nf their party, were
regarded as certain of election, ln
both ridings the Liberal majorities In
1904 had been substantial; in Kootenny it bad been very large. The result
of the 12th ult... In the light of all
these facts, wus extremely gratifying.
In spite of the most prodigal promises of government recognition, mude
by the Liberal standard hearers and
backed up by members of the cabinet,
thu electors reversed the former majorities and elected the opposition
candidates by unprecedented majorities. The voice ol the people of Kootenny and Yale-Cariboo expresses the
true feeling of the Canadian people in
every province of tho Confederation
except Quebec u feeling which wus
deudencd by the artful application ol
a golden drug,
We have no doubt that many liberals in and out of parliament who aro
not residents of Yale-Cariboo will
agree with tbe conservatives that Mr.
Duncan Ross bus got his deserts. The
liberal members of parliament espee
lally, will reel a sense of relief. They
regarded Mr. Floss us a man who was
too observant of his neighbors' personal actions. They felt a sense of
restraint, when in his compuny, such
ns men experience when they suspect
that thoy nre being observed through
a keyhole or a crack in the wall. Tbe
opposition, und tho country, including
his own constituency, had a more
substantial griovnncc against him. He
was not an intelligent or useful mem
ber of parliament. He possessed mi
public spirit, and.he misrepresented
to lhe country the wishes of his riding und his province. Mis speeches in
the house show that he was not truth
lul iu his utterances and that he wun
prepared to sacritice his constituency
and the interests of llritish Columbia
to serve party ends and personal
alms. And with very mediocre ability he possessed a species of CU tilling
which mude him dangerous to thc
real welfare of the public. Sueh a
man, it is manifest, ought not to be
la parliament, und be will nnt be
there again. The constituency of
Yale-Cariboo has said so,
The new members of these two llritish Columbin ridings are men of far
more than the average ability, and
they will bring strength to the opposition in parliament and will fittingly represent the people of lhe Pnrilic

| vinces pamphlets hostile to the
Kronen race, and iluu throw ih- odium of it in Quebec on tbo Cuuservu-
tivos. This sort of campaigu lias according   tu   Lo   NatiulialisLi',   "so  fall
atlcized the French-Cnuudlnns that
they have voted <n blue for Laurier,
simply because he is a Prcnch-Cuuiy
dlan, without considering whelhor it
was in tin  Interest of the country as
u  whole."
Such is tho testimony of n French

governmenl   record bus not  heen   en

Cabinet meetings in these times arc
anxious affairs, Oetoboi rctui ns
show a decrease of $0111,538 in cits
toins revenues compared with August
of 1007. From April to November tho
customs shortage is now $9,103,575
Intercolonial deficits are fully $100,
'iun a nionlh, and inland revenues are
nlso dccronslng. Thoro is no doubl
that tho revenue for the full year will
be fifteen tn twenty million dollars
less 1 lum that ui lust year.
Tiie obvious conclusion from air
this is thai the expenditure musi be
cut duwn. Hut at that mouunt ex
pi'iiditurcs are piling up larger than
ever, and ministers a,re in led upon to
make up iheir estimates for the emu

his mind olection promises made bj
