Youngest Prime   Minister of
■ny Dominion or Colony
The Hon. Richard McBride, K. C.
L. _. B., M. L. A., Premier ol British Columbia—and incidenta.ly the
youngest prime.. minister ot any
Brlti.ih dominion state or colony-
today celebrates the fortieth anniversary ot his birth, he having been
horn within the high walls ol tbe
penitentiary at New Westminster (ol
which his father was governor) on
the Uth of December, 1870. He has
now been prime minister ol his native province since June, 1903, being
but thirty-three when he achieved
the high honors and accepted the
responsibilities of the premiership.
And every year makes more appreciable the quality of this statesman
and his importance as a national
more than a merely Provincial
In comparison with, ths Hon. Newton James Moore, 0. M. C. premier
and Stats Secretary of West Australia, whom the British and Antipodean press have devoted much attention to as "the youngsst premier
that any British Dominion has ever
knows", lt may be noted that Hon.
Mr. Moore wae horn at Bunbary, in
the stats over which he now presides
ln May ol 1870 and succeeded to his
present position ol high honor in
1908. Premier McBride, while hie
junior in age by about six months,
la, therefore, his ssnlor ln political
distinction by three years, achieving
the premiership of British Columbia
at thirty-three, whereas Hon. Mr.
Moors became premier oP'Westralla"
at thirty-sli.
It is interesting to note that both
these "youngest premiers" ol Greater Britain are native,sons of the
lands they rule.
Hon. Richard McBride occupies a
unique position in Western Canada
politics. He is not only the youngest ol Provincial premiers, the loader
of the first British Columbia government established on party lines, but
what ls more important to the welfare of the country, the first government of British Columbia, In many
years at least, which has wholly won
ths confidence ot the people, has
placed and maintained provincial
business and provincial credit on a
sound basis, haa anticipated and
provided for the developing necessities of the country, and has in general so discharged its obligations as
custodians ol the public business as
not yst to have been touched by the
breath or suggsstlon ot any scandal.
Prsmlsr McBride Is a big man. In
the eyes ol visitors (who sometimes
obtain a truer perspsctivs than do
those "familiar with the vieR") he
lt as truly a type ot the beet Western Canadianlsm as Col. Roosevelt Is
or ever was ths type of aggressive
American citlsenahlp. He does not
play tbe "game of politics." He
makes lt something more worthy
than the "game" Into which, in
other hands, it had degenerated.
Premier McBride ia a Conservative
because he finds better material
available in Conservative citizens
and Conservative policy for bettering
conditions in this province and ln
this Dominion than are available to
hia hand elsewhere. But he Is not
• partisan politician, albeit there are
already very many, on ths Atlantic
as well as on the Pacific slope and
all the way between, who are watching his developing statesmanship
with pride and prophetic vision,
counting upon the altogether dominant personality of Western Canadian public aflatra as a man fit lor
Conservative and National leadership when   the   time shall come, as
come It must, for Sir Wilfrid to lay
iinidc the burden ol responsibility with
high honor that lie lias for so luutf
borne as lirst Qltlseil of tlie faat-
growlng Dominion,
ln Ills provincial career Premier McBride has shown himself indisputably
a leader. He has shown himself ttliovo
the tricka and subterfuges of petty
politics. He has shown himself possessed of "thc hand of iron within the
velvet glove." He has shown himself
as scornful of the threats of sell-
seeking politicians of his own oarty
as of the wire-pulling of his opponents, and disposed to in emergencies
invariably nilopt the simplest and
most honorable policy—place hiB position squarely before the people and
leave himself in their hands. As a
result he Is not only Premier of British Columbia, nnd unquestionably
and undeniably the country's strongest man, hut he has held the premiership much longer than did any
of his predecessors in oflice.
The local Premier's course in the
reception and welcome of the Federal
Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Lnurler,
on the occasion of the latter's visit
to British Columbia last August was
typical of the man and host. It
scorned the pettiness of party political strife, and was alike marked by
tact and good taste. It afforded the
Rastern Journalists who accompanied
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, an opportunity
to study the new star iu the sky
who, as one of their number expressed it, "had hypnotised British
Columbia." Aud. having marked
him well, they come to the conclusion that Premier McBride is not
"a politician par excellence," as
the machine men admiringly describe
him, but juse a sound, strong-hearted, resourceful, optimistic, thorough-
and-through Canadian, who finds his
mission in life the employment of
hlB admitted genius in leadership
towards the progressive development
of his native Province and his oa-
tlve land. Such men are rare. Yet
every Anglo-Saxon nation breeds
them upon occasion. The perpetuation of tbeir kind is all essential to
the redemption of national government from its occasional lapses into
torpor or degeneracy.

Down Scott Act
Victoria, Dec. 14.—A campaign for
the substitution of tlie Canada Temperance (Scott) act for British Columbia's present drastic and well enforced high license and strict regulation liquor law ia the counties of
Prince Rupert and Chiliwack ended

cases, with adverse majorities of
Wi and 2b respectively. This is the

Liberal Party Sick
Listen to the confession of a Liberal M. L. A., Mr. Godfrey Lang-
bots, in hiB paper Le Pays.
"Our party has met with a crushing defeat, and we must have the
courage to avow it. All will admit
that our party is not what it was
formerly, for the Liberals have certainly weakened during the past few
years. A great number of partizans
have raided the depository of the
government, spoilers have wrung
from the ministry everything in their
power for their own personal account
instead of remaining at their post as
good Boldiers of duty and progress.
As a matter of fact our party is
gravely sick. In the minds of a
great number of people Liberalism
has given place to mlnisterialism.
Instead of tbe grand principles of a
former day, we find keen appetites
and personal aspirations impregnating the present entourage of 8lr
Wilfrid Laurier. There are too
many people, in fact, who are trying
to get rich nt tbe expense of the
country. There are too many advocates in Parliament who wish to
dim the ermine. Our Liberal news
papers instead of being allies of the
Government, have been playing the
role of servile domestics, and power
has been used for the material satisfaction and advantages which it
"We are both disabled and disorganized. In Montreal, for instance,
we hnve no loaders, no centre for
rallying purposes, no centre for political action, and no cohesion lu
the ranks. As a matter of fact
there iB nothing at all except general dissatisfaction. We frequently
hear of un election committee, but
all this is n myth, for since fifteen
years it is centered in tbc pocket of
Senator Damltirand."
"In short, whoever is premier of
Canada after the next General Election, it will not be Sir Wilfrid Laurier."
Earthquakes in Scotland
GlaBgow, Dec. 14.—A series of
earth shocks was felt last night and
also north of the Clyde. These
shocks caused great alarm but no
damage was  reported.
The Upper Columbia and Kootenay
valleys are open to the world and
are to.day vast storehouses of riches.
The men who are far-sighted
enough to invest in thcHC valleys now
will "sure" be rewnrded. ThomnndB
of men will find profitable employment in this territory during the
next few years, and hundreds will
make fortunes. Groat mineH will ho
opened up, and many towns will he

great population that will fill these

will create a growing market for
land produce and every line of manufacture.
Many in Pomona were saddened to
learn of tbe death of James McMullen on Sunday morning at his home,
450 East Holt avenue.
Mr. McMullen was horn in Toronto
Canada, in October, liJ5fi, and the
greater part of his early life was
spent there. He lived for one year
in Cleveland, and while there, in 1883
he was married to Miss Lou Gamble,
and they returned to Toronto to live
going from there to British Columbia, wh«re they lived until their removal to Pomona in December 1900.
Mr. McMullen was a member of
the First Methodist Church of Pomona, and was a man of sterling worth,
honored and respected by all who
knew him, and he will be mourned by
scores of friends, lie leaves a wife
to mourn the death of a most devoted husband. His mother, Mrs.
Francis McMullen, came to Pomona
from Toronto about two months ago
and has heen in the home of her son
all the time since her arrival, and it
gave Mr. McMullen much pleasure to
have his mother with him after a sepal ution  of eleven   years.
Mr. McMullen also leaves three sisters: Mrs. Herbert Miatt of Toronto,
Canada, Mrs. William Millotjhami>
and Mrs. A. 0. l.nstrange oi Winnipeg, and two brothers, William Mc
Mullen of Pomona and George McMullen in Idaho,
Mr. McMullen had been ill but one
week and on Saturday felt so much
better that hu remarked that he
would go downstairs and take dinner
with the rest of the family on Sunday, but at 2 o'clock the next morning he wns taken suddenly worse and
diod at It o'clock of infinmmatlon of
the brain.
I The funeral services wen held at
the McMullen residence last Tuesday
morning, Rev. L. D. Van Arim officiating, and the body was interred
In the Evergreen cemetery.
Mr. McMullen was a resident of
(Jranbrook some years ago.
An enterprising young man bas
been nrroBted in Alberta whose diversified abilities were not limited by an
industrial unit. He pursued the oc
.pupations of preacher, newspaperman, nnd horse thief. The tlrst two
are honorable and more or Iobb lucrative, but the latter led to his down
fall and for the next tive years bin
activity will be confined to picking
oakum under the supervision of a
government demonstrator.

Canals in Canada
Ottawa. Dec. 14.—Large delegations from difTerent sections ol Canada today urged the government to
begin work upon two canal projects,
either of which would involve an expenditure  of $100,000,000.
An Ottawa-Montreal delegation favored the immediate construction of
the Georgian Bay canal. The second
delegation representing town s in
western Ontario, demanded tbat the
Wellaml canal he first enlarged.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said the government favored both projects. Tho
question of money was the only thing

The Prince Rupert Empire which
was founded hy the lute John Houston and which under him and his
successors has persistently fought for
tho enforcement of the law against
illicit liquor selling has come out
squarely In favor of licenses. It
gives as its reason the fact that public opinion is behind the officers of
the law in their ellorts to abolish
the blind pigs and tbc impossibility
of enforcing the farcial act known as
the Hcott Act. It is notorious that
the stun* sold hy blind pigs is the
most damnable concoction winch caa
