Conservative
Convention
ELECTED  CANDIDATE
A  PLATFORM   OF   MERIT
GOODHVK
OF   ROSSLAND   CHOSEN
The Conservative party ol Kooteuay district belit ii convention, on
Tuesday duly 2lHt for tbo purpose of
selecting u candidate to represent
this riding in the Dominion House.
If the choice of one who is freely
■characterized ns the most brilliant
speaker in u province full of orators,
a nmn whose devotion to and belief
in the principles of conservatism is
almost a by-word, together with the
drawing up of a set of resolutions
embodying u platform ol sterling
merit, whose endorsutlon, whose
criticisms, whose principles cannot
he gainsaid und whose truths are
■uximatic in tbe hearts of the newer
Canada of* a springing generation,
hacked by the absolute loyalty and
faith of a convention, which for
thorough representativeness of ull
classes and all districts has never
before been equalled, let alone excelled in the Kooteuay, can lead the
■conservative party to victory in this
federal riding then, assuredly, whensoever tlie Dominion elections are
culled, be it in the fall of thin or in
.the spring time of next year, A. S.
iGoodeve of Rossland, formerly the
choice of premier McBride as a cabinet minister, will be the choice of
the people of Kootenay as their
spokesman in the next bouse of commons.
Kor Mr. Goodeve is one who deserves well of the Kootenay. It is
ihere that he has come into prominence in politics, it is here that he
has developed thnt remarkable talent
im* public speaking which distin
HjulShes Inn., it. la tor the conservatives of the province thut he has
spent much time, much money and
devoted much care. It speaks well
of -him that from the earliest days of
Rossland he hus ever been taken into
dt* councils. Three years he served
on the council board, once in the
responsible position of chairman of
the board of works and twice ;is
mayor, being re-elected ufter serving
one term during the most trying
time of Rossland's short career, and
so well did he perform his duties
thut he wus petitioned by a very
large number of his fellow citizens,
nearly 2000 in number, to serve a
third term. Such was Rossland's
verdict on A. S. Goodeve, and if
Rossland cun speak so well of Its
distinguished citizen the recommendation must curry weight all through
the big constituency  of Kootenay.

Gentlemen—Y uur credential committee in presenting this report
would  respectfully submit:
That in our opinion much credit is
due the different organizations
throughout the district for the manifest interest shown In this convention, as evidenced by the lurge number of delegates present representing
the remotest parts, as well as the
nearer and more populous centres.
Having totnl representation of 108
delegates, we find there are actually
SR in attendance, with a voting list
(by proxy) bringing the representation of this meeting to 103, only five
short of a full vote. This surely
augers well for the causes and principles to which our party stands
committed, and if the same interest
is maintained throughout the approaching campaign, we feel assured
our standard bearer, whoever he may
be. will lead us on to victory.
Tbe report of the attendance was
received with applause, which was
renewed at tbe expression of victory.
The report of the committee was received und adopted.
NOTHING SECRET.

Tbe chairman then suggested that
ufter nominations were made the

cess should U* taken before proceeding to the vote. He urged that nti
sectional considerations he entertain
ed.
The procedure was approved. The

thought,      the    people  of      Kootenay
bad confidence in Mr. Green's ability
and Integrity, and his eminent lit
ness for membership iu the Dominion parliament.
Mr. Green warmly thanked his supporters and the convention which
bud received bin name with wild up-
pluuse, and expressed the hope that
his supporters would appreciate the
fact. tbat. In declining the nomination he was turning awuy from certain victory ut the polls.
W. R. Ross, M.L.A., was notaina

said that be was compelled to decline the honor.
A. S. Goodeve, whose mime was
also warmly received, was nominated
by T. Taylor, who, eloquently extol
led Mr. Goodeve's ability and bis
long und splendid record of party
service. As provincial whip, he
hoped that Mr. Ross would uot be

wus an esteemed and useful member.
The nomination was seconded by
A. B. Clark of Field, and by 0, R.
Hamilton of Rossland.
F. A, Starkey also endorsed the

services tind  ability.
W. A. Maedonald was nominated
by W Irvine. Mr C II Sewell as
soconder.
I
In declining Mr. Maedonald declat
ed thut only private considerations
compelled him reluotantly to decline
lie was very sensible or the honor
paid htm. He cstei-med membership
in the dominion parliament a very
high honor, although of late it luul
become almost a disgrace. Mi. Mac
donald was   frequently     interrupted
with   applause.
Tbe name ..| James It Scltoflold,
presented   by   (i.   F.    Weir  and     P.   R.
McDonald, was received with loud
cheers from every member <<• tlto
convention, Including the supporters
if other nominees, Mr. McDonald in
..oeondlng tbe nomination, declared
that Mr. Scholield hud "made good"
in every respect and lhat be colli
mantled in it degree unequalled by
any other conservative In the riding,
the confidence of tho labor party-
Mr. Scholield expressed his warm
appreciation ol the honor paid htm,
und of the evident confidence reposed
in him by the convention, but. he
could not. accept. Very earnestly
he said: "1 have never had "cold
leet" in my life. 1 have never
fought u light that I have not won.
But, gentlemen, 1 cannot accept this.
1 have other duties more Immediate
ly binding,    I  must decline,
The nominations then closing, A,
S, Goodeve wus called upon to
i pea It.
GOODEVE SPEAKS.
He thanked his friends fur their
kindness. It wus with a feeling of
great responsibility tbat he allowed
his name to be submitted. He
thought that the history of the last
ten years of Liberal rule was sufficient in a free and intelligent country like Canada'to guarantee the defeat of thnt party. Wholesale extravagance and dishonesty could not.
and would not go on unchecked. The
foundations uf Canadian nationality
within the Rritish Empire bad been
laid by the conservative party, and
tbat only that party could be trusted to complete and perfect it.
He had not sought the nomination
but if the choice of the party fell
upon him he would accept, and do
his best to win, and, it' elected
would represent to tbe best of his
ability tbe district of Kootenay, a
district he believed the best, the
richest and grandest in Canada or in
tbe world,
He wus hardly in a tinancial position to undertake so great a task,
but if tbe purty called he would nut
refuse.
He held very strongly tbat Canada
must remain a white man's country
as contended by R. L, Borden, the
party's able and trusted leader.
He asked for support not for himself, but for the conservutive party
as Canada's one hope of purification
and  regeneration.
Mr. Goodeve's eloquent address
evoked frequent nnd enthusiastic
cheering.
ROSS OF   FERNIE.
W. R. Ross remarked thut he could
not hope to rival the eloquence of
Mr. Goodeve. He hud hoped for a
unanimous nomination for either W.
A. Maedonald or J. H. Scholield. He
had neither sought or desired a nomination for himself. Like Mr. Goodeve, be would allow the convention
to choose. If Mr. Goodeve were
chosen, he promised him undivided,
loyal and energetic support from ull
tbe conservatives of Fust  Kootenay.
A short recess was then taken be.
fore the  voting.
THK  BALLOT.
After a brief explanation by the
chairman thut the vote would be
taken by individual ballot, H. It.
Jorttnd and V. A. Rollins were up
pointed scrutineers und distributed
the  ballots.
The result, was soon announced bv
tbe chairman to be the choice of A
S. Goodeve,
W. R. Ross declared, amid enthusiastic applause, that be luul himself
voted for Mr. Goodeve, and entirely
approved the result. He moved that
the unanimous nomination of the
convention be tendered to Mr Good
eve.
This was carried by acclamation
and followed ut Otico, at tbe call of
the chair by "Three cheers for Billy
Ross."
Mr. Goodeve, who was again re
ceived with an outburst of cheering
declared that now he was in the
hands of the party. He appealed for
Btipport not. for himself personally
but as a follower of R. L. Borden,
nnd u humble und fulthful reprosen
tative of the conservative party.
After announcing the program of
the evening meeting, tin- chairman
called for resolutions, which were
presented und adopted as follows:

Lowland did around Robert and
drive out these vulgar tyrants Irish
history ever since would not he the
doleful tale that It is. Cruelty and
oppression marked even steps ol the
conquerors, They tore oul the
tonUUCH  ot  the  Welch   hnrds  they left
n legacy to Qnglnnd thnt will now
be extinguished. After tho old git Ido
ami myself had rofotight the battle
of   Butmockburn.      wo   returned to
Sterling uml had luncheon ut Wuvor-
ley Hotel. A short dlsttlUCO is the
Wallace monument standing on a
lofty and precipitous eminence facing
Stirling. The climb to the moult
ment is a most beautiful one, A
line roud winds around shaded hy
high trees. The monument is over
'±0\\ feet high, We ascend by a winding staircase in one of the corners.
There are four Hats as we ascend
where we rest and examine relics,
statues and swords. I paced the
floor and judged it to be over 30 feet
square. On the lirst was Wallace's
sword In a glass case, That glorious
old weapon is tn safe keeping. It is
about six feet in length, nml is woll
worth crossing a continent and ocean
to see this emblem of our
freedom, not only Scottish but English. One must be blind to all the
teachings of history who cannot recognize in this all we owe at the
present ago to ttie struggle for national liberty so dearly purchased in
the brave days of old, While here
I sang "Scots Whn Hae" with my
wife as an audience but the echo
roused the spirits of the lions of
whose heroic, conduct I sunn. The
view frum the top is especially grand
The Forth winds in the most extraordinary way. The Ochil hills to
the south, the Grampian to the
north, while below lies the most
beautiful stretch of cultivated land I
ever saw. Small steamers ply up
from Edinburgh and make u distance
of 21 miles when a straight line is
only seven. An old ruin lies to the
west. Stirling bridge is near where
once a great battle of national freedom was fought. Wallace stood on
the spot where tbe monument is, directing tbe battle. I went to the
castle for It too hns its relics. The
Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders
are stationed here. The cemetery
near the castle is a beautiful spot
much like the Glasgow one partly on
a high precipitous rock and partly
below on level ground, The castle
is similiarly situated to Edinburgh
castle. Within the walls is a tine
monument erected to the A and S
Highlanders who fell in South Africa
A fine statue to King Robert Bruce
tands in the forefront. We thor-
mghly enjoyed our trip tu Stirling.
Before returning to Edinburgh In the
evening we took horse-cars to the
Bridge of Allan, a health resort at
the foot of the Debit Hills. Beailtl-
full residences and castles ure seen
all along the road and on the brows
if the hill. Returning wc passed
many places of interest, chiefly Dun
fermllne in which Abbey is buried
Bruce's heart, and which is the
birth place of Carnegie. We spent
another dny at Crail in Fifosbire,
across the Forth and near its mouth,
visiting Mrs. and Miss Cunningham
and Sergeant Cunningham. Mrs. Bro-
die, and Mrs. Russell,,once of Fort
Steele were not at home, but we
found our friends and relatives well
und pleased to see us from Cranbrook. Berg. Cunningham is on six
months' furlough from India. He
is a splendid specimen of the High
land officers, being in the "Black
Watch" which is at present station
ed at Peshawar, Crall is a grand
old town by the sea. We visited old
parish churches where John Knox
once preached. Very old grave
stones are seen here. Tbe old fashioned pulpit is still here, nmd is tlie
one he probably preached on, so 1 as
cendod the steps and stood where tbe
great reformer bad been. 1 thought
it a pity those old fashioned pulpits
have been done away with for there
is nothing exbuusts my patience
more than tlie prancing about on tbe
modern platform by so many preachers of ttie present day. After a stay
of a few hours at. Crall and viewing
old places, we bid good bye to our
kind and hospitable friends reaching
Edinburgh at Hi In the evening.
Several interesting ruins were noticed on our journey, Fife is also
tbe great farming county of Scotland. We made a visit by a motor
to see ttie Forth Bridge, nine miles
from     Edinburgh. Tliis     famous
structure is well worth seeing. Thirty men are constantly at work painting the iron work and it takes
three years to complete it, so the
work never stops. When passing 1
noticed they were about half way.
We crossed this triumph of engineering skill four times quite comfortably, On our way to Crail we puss
ed Kinghorn, where Alexander III
King of Scotland wus killed hy falling over the hank riding by on a
dark night. The untimely death of
this, one of Scot lands best. Kings
was a blow which was sorely felt for
many a day. 1 shull treat of tho
exhibition next week.

Just to prove merit—to show you how
quickly Preventics can and will check colds
or tli*_- Grippe—I will mail you free on
request these lamplej and my book. Simply
address —Dr, shoop, Racine, Wis.
Preventics are thoroughly harmless little
Candy Cold Cure tablets, No Quinine, no
laxative, nothing sickening whatever.
To clurk early Colds or Grippe with "Preventics" means sitr* defeat for Pneumonia,
To stop a cold with Preventics is surely
safer man to lei it run and he obliged to
cure it afterward. Preventics will however
reach a deeply seated cold. But taken
early—at the sneeze stage—they break ur
head off these early colds. That is surely
better—thai is why they are named "Preventics," Promptness however is all-Important. Promptness in the use of Preventics may save half your usual sickness,
Feverish ness, night or day, with child i>r
