On behalf ol Mr. Nelson, Mr. A. II
Macdonald replead as follows:
"Mi. Nelson  ask* cn* to  read the
following renlv:-
1, am absolutely at a loss to had
words in which to express mv thanks
to yon for the kindly and flattering
address that, you have given me.
To you, Sir, and the many other
kind friends I express mv sincere
thanks for the generous subscription
ami the gold watch and chain which
needless to snv us lime passes on I
shall ever value aunl cherish.
Allow mc also to take the opportunity to thank all the ollicers anal
members iu the employ of the Provincial Government for tlieir loyalty
to me aaJial to the many ' personal
kindnesses showered upon me while in
ollice and since mv retlrcnienl.
Indeed this is true ol all, and I can
only agiiia say that words fail me to
sufficiently thank you lor these magnificent gilts as evidence oi your
Gentlemen, I thank you.
Witt, the curtailment of land speculation the era iters have abandoned
that once prolific game and have turned their attention to floating oil
companies, mining companies and
other freak concerns. The public is
gulled into buying and under the protection of the Companies' Act not
only investors but tbosc who extend
credit to such concerns are made to
suiter. What is needed is an act similar to the "Uliic Skr Law", which
will protect the public from such fake
and freak concerns.
Even in Kngland thc game is being
worked under the Act and countless
hundreds nre being bled annually by
sharks. Herbert W. Jordan in a
recent lecture before the Secretaries'
.Vjsoeiatirin, London, void:
"X is thc owner of an unsnund business, and things are going from had
to worse. A brilliant idea occurs
io him: Why not f°rm a company to
acquire the undertaking, write »p the
goodwill, and sell the concern for a
largt' sum. Then all that remains
for him to do is to go on trading for
a year or so, drawing a handsome
remuneration as Managing Direetorr
discharging the Labilities incurred
prior to formation, but Incurring new
ones freely, and, as soon as a creditor levies execution, to enforce his security. • • ■ • «
Hy tbis means the Vendor bas not
onlv avoid bankruptcy, but he has
aetunlly enriched himself at the expense of the obliging creditors, who
aro robbed under tlie clonk of the
I'omapnies' Acts, for goods supplied
by them arc sold tor his benefit.
No longer has the unsuccessful trader to face the prospect of being harassed in all sorts of ways, perhaps
t-'.uned out of home, spumed by acquaintances, and ultimately adjudged
bankrupt. Like the Roy Seoul, he
may "smile and whistle under all
circumstances." He needs no pla<y
of refuge from pressing creditors, such
ns the Kphesiaiis nf old had fn their
Temple at Artemis. Wilh the "Vitiate Blacksmith," hi* can 'look the
whole world in the facc(for (iti law)
he owes not any man.' Of course,
the t'ompany must purl, with its possessions, but, thanks to ils Impersonal constitution, nom. nf these t mules affecls it, and contumely and
anallieiiias miiy pour on it like water on a duck's back."

When thc curtain at thc Auditorium i
was raised at 8-30 last Monday night
it revealed to thc Liberal speaker, a
OApaoltv house, ncarlv every seat be-,
in* tilled and a large number were
standing at the rear.
Mr. C. It. Ward, thc local Liberal
candidate, was chairman of thc evening and seated on thc platform were
Mr, H. P. Browster nml Mr. M*. A,'
Macdonald, the speakers of tbe even-'
ing, and Dr. J. II. King, W. A. Nis-|
iM*!, T. S. Gill, T...!. Summers of,
Kimberley, Goo. Geary and John-
Mirth of Port .Steele, and a quartette of reporters.
Mr. Ward announced that it was nisi
lirst appearance before aa audience of i
this kind and he felt pleased to see
BO many people out to hear political
matters discussed At present he
had nothing special to say but would
address thu electors at some future
date fully upon the questions affecting local interests. It was not often
that n, Cranbrook audience were privileged to listen to two such distinguished speakers. Mr. Macdonald
was well known and needed no introduction. Mr. Hrcwstcr is the leader
of the Liberal party in British Columbia and this was his first appearance on the platform In the city. He
was glad to sen so many ladles
present and stated that Iheir interest
was manifest il because the Liberals
were prepared and pledged to grant
the franchise to ladles as soon as
tbey were in power.
Mr. Macdonald said he was pleased i
to find himself again on familiar,
ground among old friends and acquaintances. He would prefer to deal
with other subjects than a controversial one, but there had always |
been a spirit of good fellowship in
Cranbrook following political contests, no matter how Intense partis-
san feeling was stirred during t-he
contest. In this district there was
an absence of intense partisan bitterness. The present tour ot
tho province was being made at a
time when no party feeling was apparent   in order to grt the attention
nf the people mid their calm
judgement of the administration.
Two or three years ago such a mect-
in»i at such a time could not secure ii
corporal's guard, but it was evident
that the people were awakening and
thinking and an Interest was being
manifested in the afliars of the province as ther wen* being administered
at Victoria. Large audiences had
greeted their meetings at every point
visited in the province. This was a
healthy interest and be hoped that
the people of tbe district would e-
ventually discover the true state of
affairs in this province and when tin*
next vote is taken thai they will return Chas. IL Wind as tho next mem
ber for this district. (Applause) Other constituencies will return Liberal
candidates and hi* hoped for. the complete overthrow o) the McBride administration.
He stated thai the last ten years
had been years of prosperity, of
speculative prosperity. The people
were making money and did not eare
who was in power, but now thev
were beginlng lo ponder. Lumbering
and farming were the two basic industries at the bottom ol.tho prosperity of the province. If prosperity
were to be well founded, tbis community must be surrounded by agriculturalists. The land should be
planted with bona fide settlers in
place of through the auctioneer. During the past ten years, the govern*
ment had taken great^-redit for bavin* rescued the province from -. slate
of bankruptcy—but in how short time
history, was repeating Itself and Ihe
province was again hprderlng a state
of bankruptcy.
In the past eight years, the government has alienated about five million
acres of the beat agricultural land in
the province to speculators. This
constitutes practically one-third of
the toatal area of good arable land
of the,province. Kor this the government had received about seven or
eight million dollars, not enough to
pay tbe running expenses, for nine
niwth* at Uie promt rate of ripen
diture. Was this alieaation justified'.'
asked Mr. Macdonald. In Alberta
and Saskatchewan, they have brought
thc lands under the plow, and cities
have sprung up and;industry is- flourishing. In this province they have
brought the land under thc speculator aud.it is growing a crop of surveyor's stakes.
The treasury is now depleted and
the government is now looking for a
loan from seves to ten millions.
They claim there is. a balance of
thirteen million owing from thc land
sales to speculators but they do not
call, in the money owing, but prefer
to borrow and ask thc taxpayers' to
nav thc interest on this immense «iim
by increased taxes. In all the communities in British Columbia, where
there was some degree of agricultural production there .was prosperity
and the financial stringency was n**.t
felt. Slq Richard McBride bad called
the Liberal speakers "Calamity Howlers." Sir Itichard wanted the people to quit talking hard times, fold
their arms complacently and trust
to providence and Sir Richard,
Tbe Liberals believed it the part af
wisdom that a land settlement policy should be fixed and had adopted .1
plank in their platform which fully
covered the situation.
In the lumbering industry the Government had parted witb thousands
of square miles of the best timber to
speculators. Thc lumbermen have
lieen asking the government to,arrive at some conclusion regarding
ground rent, royalties and dues, in
order tbat a permanent value may be
fixed on the timber. Thc government have been working for two or
three years but have arrived at nothing so far. When lumbermen go to
the banks to borrow money, the
banks refuse the loan because there is
no permanency to the value of timber, caused by thc instability of tlie
government policy. Two years ago,
the minister of lands presented a
bill but it was withdrawn. The Liberal party inserted a plank in their
Inst platform declaring for fl fifed
ri'natinuat how Vm? B\a>)

We notice the Craobrook Operatic
Society are holding their annual
meeting next Tuesday and in tbo in-
lercsl uf vlhe public hope that the
meeting will he well attended, and
that the society will endeavor to
favor the Cranhrook theatre-goers
with another production in the near
future. Some ot the lormcr leaders
of the society have moved away but
'there is also new talent in the city
and1 there is no reason why another
good1 production could not be put on
the hoards and it would help to liven
things up during these quiet days
while we are waiting for the abatement ot the financial stringency and
the tennis and baseball season. If
the members get together and get
hnsv we are confident good results
will follow.
It was proven last night that the
public is always ready to accept
dramatic art us a source of amusement, providing the artistes are talented . M iss Cat ..critic Henrv and
Eugene West, in their presentation
of one-act plays won immediate favor
and are without the slightest doubt
the most talented and versatile performers who have even graced the
stage, in this city. The offerings
presented yesterday were deliguttully
rendered, and tho applause unstinted
at the close of each playlet.t Tonight an entirely new programme
will ho submitted, and a capaeity audience is expected, judging from the
many complimentary remarks passed
last evening. Miss Catherine Henry
is worthy of special mention, her act-
being of such superior character that
one revels in the delightful atmosphere that surrounds her capable
character studies. Ably supported by
Mr. West, the performance is a dramatic nam and is a compliment to the
efforts of the Sherman management
to give the theatre-vping public
amusement that is refreshing, artistic and of an elevating character.—

We are workers' all and sundry,
toiling al our daily chores; some are
cooped in gloomy building, some are
working out of doors; some with
thews and muscle labor, some are

that's done in earnest ever yet was
done in vain. There's reward for
every effort if we to our duty keep,
till the whistles blow at nightfall
and we journey home to sleep. Some
must work for lilt,e wages, other men
have coin to spare; Ini ibe lirst are
often happy while Uie last are full of
care; some must rise at early morning while the others slumber late, bul
the gods who watch the workers in

us therefore labor blithely, let us
build, and spin and reap, till the whistles, blow at nightfall and wo journey
home to sleep. We are workers, only workers, on this swiftly whirling
hall, and lhe Boss is keeping cases
on his helpers, one and all. Wl.cn we

record will be banded out his pay.
Let u* labor then with spirit—let us

Thc notices to the members of the
Windermere District Hoard of Trade,
calling them to the annual meetiru:
i-iave been issued. This asks for their
attendance here on Friday, the sixth
of February, the meeting to open at
two o'clock in the afternoon. At
tkifl meeting thc affairs of the Board
for the past year will he Rone into
officers for 1911 elected and a general
programme laid out for .the season
just opening.
The Board was first organized in
lft 11 with a tnembei'Miip of thirteen.
During tJie year 1912 this number
was increasj.'d to forty-three while in
1913 it rose to a membership of over
sixty. It is thought that a further
increase will be made in 1914. During 1912 the body, became ineorpora-
Soeieties Act and in 1913 by reason
of the increased population in the
District it was further advanced by
securing a Dominion charter. Its
work covers the whole of the Windermere Mining Division with this part
as its centre. The Windermere Mining Division extends over :i distance
of eighty miles from North to South
and approximately forty miles from
l'?ast to West. Within its boundaries
are great irrigation works and untold
mineral deposits of great wealth.
The scenery is magnificent. Only this
year is if really going to come into
its own bv the long looked-for construction of the Kootenay Central
Railway, being a branch ol the Canadian Pacific system whieh will tr-
verse the whole of the Columbia Kootenay Rivers Valleys and join the
main line of the railway on the North
with its Crow's Nest Pass branch on
the South.

—Two very important announcements
have been made this past week having
special bearing for hwh| on this part.
The first was that 0t Mr. (J, J, Hurt
Vice-President of the Canadian Pacilic
Kail way who in announcing that
ComaPnv's plans for the eoniinc
year stated that it was the intention
to devote their eneigies chiefly to
finishing oft the work so well Iroguu
last year which would include
amongst other classes the completion
of the unfinished portion of their
Kootenay Central branch. He said
that this would be completed in sufficient time to be in operation before
the close of the year. This line traverse the Kootenay-Columlda River
Valleys from end to end and will
prove a very important connecting
link between the Main fine and the
Crow's Nest Pass of the railway
Company's system.
The second announcement was that
made hy thc Hon. R. F. Oreen, the
member of Parliament for thc Federal
House at Ottawa which was to the
effect that during tlie present session
when redistribution of scats for the
Dominion Parliament will be made
that this riding be divided and
given two members instead of one
is now thc case. It is probable that
tho division wilt split the riding from
the North to the South.
He went on to make the further announcement that it was his intention
to ask for a further appropriation to
improve thc Government telephone
line between Golden and this District

La-st week in Maker's Hall the Anglicans held their annual meeting.
Two wardens were appointed, Mr.
Little and Dr. .Saunders. Mr. .1.
Pands and Mr. Rev. King were appointed vestrymen- The question of
the building of a new church was discussed; but the difficulty of choosing
a site, that would bo suitable for
Waldo and Haynes combined, was apparent.   No agreement was come to.
A very pertjnent subject was raised
at the above meeting, viz., tlu* fencing of the graveyard at Bavin*. As
is well-known, cattle are continually
walking over the craves and something should be done to prevent, this.
It must, however, be apparent to all
that this is a question for the whole
community, not for env particular
church; but, I am sure, everybody is
sensible of indebtedness to colonel
Pyne for raising the subject. A committee representing both Waldo and
Haynes could be annointed to look,
into this matter- The amount, of
lumber necessary for the fencing no
doubt would be given gratuitously by
the three lumber companies here. All

accordance with its policy of past
years, of providing means wherebv
the fruit growers mav receive special
training in the mnre iHfllcull brunches of their work, bus decided to
hold pruning schools ut n mtmoer of
points during the coming winter. Thc
pruninpi schools will be conducted
along the lines similiar to the packing schools.
The Department of Agriculture will
provide a competent instuctor and
pav his expenses. The local administration of thc pruning schools will
he plaeed in thc hands of n responsible local body, such us thc Farmers'
Institute, the Fruit {[rowers' Association, or the, Hoard of Trade who
will be responsible tor the mmranlce
of ;i minimum of eiirlit pupils, but
not more than twelve, with the proper qualifications, at a fee of two
dollars each, to take the twelve les
sons of three hours n lesson, the
school extending over five davs,
Where the number of pupils in *, district justifies, two priming schools
mav be arranged (or, in which the
minimum guarantee will lie sixteen
pupils, and not over twenty-four
The local organization will also
provide an orchard or orchards,
where thc instructor may hold the
pruning classes, and a hall or room
in which the lectures, mav be held.
Besides the actual practice in the
orchard, of whicli the course will consist chiefly, where thc pupil will
prune trees under the supervision oi
thc instructor, there will be several
lectures on the following subjects:-
1. Thc theory of pruning.
2. Formation of fruit huds.
3. Pruning as related to plant
•1. Top-grafting undersirablc varieties.
f>.   First aid to injured trees.
Thc pupils will nrovidi- "their own
prunine tools The nzccssarv tools
being, a pair of prunin i shears, a
saw and a pocket whetstone A
prunine pole and « light ladder may
also be nccessarv for larce trees.
Tlte Department expects that the
instructor will be met on his arrival
by some responsible person, who can
provide l.im with all necessary information so as to get the school under
wav without loss of time.
It hardly seems ncccssarvv to present to vou the important advantages to Ik- trained from a pruning
school, mining is one of the impor-
eant operations in the production of
lirst-class fruit. and one on whicb
Ihe orchardist cannot have too much
masquerade and dance. It will be a
lively and entertaining spot to spend
the week and tho old-boys' re-union
fenuture wilt no doubt bring many
old friends together.
Special rates will Ih; grven on application by the railway companies
and Hossland itself is better able to
care for visitors than in the past.

SAN DIEGO, Cal.. .Ian 28.—Sir
Thomas Upton will be one of the exhibitors at tho Han Diego Exposition, his exhibit takinir thc form of
a Ceylonese tea garden, surrounded
bv a tea plantation.
"Tea plants can be successfully
grown in San Diego," said Sir
Thomas, at the time of his recent
visit to San Diego. "I will demonstrate this lact during your exposition in 1915," he said, and when he
reached Chicani, n few davs later he
instructed his American agent there
to come to San Diego and make arrangements for two acres of ground
on thc site of thc San Diego Exposition.
The ground is now being prepared
for the tea plantation, doubtless the
first of the sort in tho United States
of America. Tea plants of mature
growth will be shipped from Ceylon
where Sir Thomas has immense tea
plantations, direct to San Diego, and
upon arrival here will be set out on
the exposition grounds. By January
1st, 1915, on which day the San
Diego Exposition will be opened, tire
lea plants will be ready for the first
harvest of tea leaves. Visitors to
tlio exposition in San Diego wilt
then be given the opportunity of seeing the whole operation of the tea
To make his exhibits picturesque
and attractive Sir Thomas has promised to bring over a number of Ceylonese workmen, for the plantation,
and Ooylonese Women to serve the
tea in the garden

thfl fellows wbo are backing the new
Federal league, and that's ., combination which may carry that nrgantza
tion lar in Its slniga'c for recognition in the baseball world.
Did vou ever hear the story of tin1
lile of Charles Weejdunaii? It's one
til tho.se modern romances. His business life began In a lowly place.
Then tin* figbtlnR instinct, unmencss
and luck eaino to liis aid. They
transformed him into a business success, a man rated by the commercial
agencies at half a million dollars.
Ten years ago Wceghmnn was lhe
night manager of a restaurant frtv
[|iient:*d by the men employed on
tin* morning newspapers of Chicago.
At tlie hour of mldnlghl there was a
gathering in this restaurant. Wcegh*
man became a I'an of tlte night life
The big stories wore Inquired about
bj" him. He became tlie confident ol
Then he started a small restnuranl
of his own. It was ono of the "help
yourself" class. Restaurant was pd
did to restaurant. Bakeries were es
tablislied. Weeghman prospered, !■'
vcrj-lhlng thai he touched ; inied to
gold. lb* added a picture* show and
a vaudeville theatre to bis holdings
Immediately it showered geld uj on
In ten years Mr. Weeghman has
climbed in the business world until
today, it is known lhat he lias more
than hull n million dollars invested
in his enterprises. He has a beautiful home on the fashionable La'te
Shore drive. He is one of the successful young husiness men of Chicago, it's estimated that ho is earning at least a quarter of a million
do'lars tl year.
Ho started as a fighter and he developed Ihe ability as be soared and
on lop of that, in* is known ns a
lucky man.
Not a great deal linn Itceniheard ol
W  M. Walker, who is associated with
! Mr. Weeghman in'ilie Chicago club of
I tin* third league, but more will be.
He is a man of'middle age and at
the height ol his ability. A few
years ago much was heard ■of thc
linn ol Booth. They supplied lisb lo
tbo large hotels, to the retail trade.
It was probably the best known flsh-
linn in the West. Walker'became its
rival. There was an intense and bitter warfare. Then the firm of Booth
suffered financial difficulty. Walker
continued oil his way. Today lie is
the ''big man" in the fish industry in
lho West. He is the fellow wlo supplied the hotels, the reslaufnnts, and
the retailers.
Monpy? Walker has lots of It! He
not it by fighting, lie is another
who is termed1 lucky hy the business
men of Chicago. Like Weeghman, its
the combination of luck and fighting
instinct tliat put  him ou top.
James A. Ollmorc, the president of
tbo league, has a business history
that reads ns strnngoly. Von talk lo
the men who are lightlnf| his league,
ask nboul Ollmorc and tbey will Inform you that he is ., coal salesman.
They will shrug Iheir shoulders as
Ihey give the information and you
apt to get the Impression that he is
a   man   who  went   about   Boilciting
Pon'l get it' (iilmnre never was of
that character. He was tl.e kind of
salesman you often read about but
seldom meet. Tbe big men were lhe
"fellows" he was afler lie lived at
the fashionable clubs, lie met wealthy men In a social way. Acqualn
tanco was followed bv liking, and (lil
more sold them coal—not hy Ibe ton
but by the car lots.
You know what ability il requires
to be a salesman ot that type, A
man must have personality. He
must be shrewd, of agreeable manners-, suave and a student of human
nature.   Ollmorc is lust Ibis man.
Chicago has been selected as the
headquarters oi the organization,
and here the fight wilt lie planned.
The force behind is of a winning personality ..

For almost the first time since
Canada was rehabilitated in 1897 by
lhe Fielding tariff and the wise administration of the Laurier government, Canada is now suffering owing
to a serious business crisis, with consequent lack ol employment, fn Toronto it is stated that at a conservative estimate there are 15,000 men
walking the city streets in search ot
employment, while this number is heing considcrblv increased, no less
Ihan 2,fiiiu men having lost their jobs
between December 20th and the New
Year. So serious has the situation
Mcvnc that the city council has had
to take cognizance of it and Civic
works aw being arranged in the hope
of furnishing employment tor these
men.  Them is »   Homeric jutiicv m
the fact that Tory Toronto is one ol
the worst sufferers from Tory mis-
At Winnipeg it reported that between 3,00(1 anil '.000 men are out of
employment, ithllle their number is
being constantly increased.
At Hegina. Saskatchewan, the position has become so acute that the
unemployed have threatened violence
in the hope (ti attracting attention to
their misery The police found it so
difficult fo eope with the situation
that preparations were made to bring
out the militia aad put the citv under martial law iti case of emergency.
In Montreal everv charitable Institution is "taxed beyond its limits, and

men whose only misfortune was that
they had no work to do gathered at
midnie-ht to wait hours in the cold
for the dole of bread and coffee.
From every part of Canada come
reports Of bard times, retrenchment
and lack of employment. It is impossible not lo contrast these conditions with those which prevailed during the fifteen years of Liberal administration and during the first
year of the present Government.
It is impossible to argue that lhe
methods of lhe present extravagant
opportunist Government liave nothing
to do with ihis state ol affairs, sn
disastrous to a young and prosperous country such as Canada, inning.
the Laurier administration national
expenditures were kept down within
reasonable limits while proper care
was taken to spend whatever money
was necessary nn national development ami the tariff was judiciously
revised in order to meet conditions
as tliey aro.se. Prosperity was ihe
natural result.
Under two years of Conservative
Government the edifice ot national
prosperity raised during fifteen years
of sane Liberal administration has
been crushed, taxes have been Increased, expenditures have doubled
and more than doubled. Extravagance and corruption have been in
evidence on every hand and now the
Inevitable result has followed. Canada's credit abroad has suffered, her
trade has fallen off, ber debt has in-
the national income Is loll
ing and tbe financial stringency is
such as will make the present winter
memorable to many as the worst
they have had to endure since 18flfi.
Providence helps those who help
themselves. Under Liberal administration Canada was really governed,
and the statesmen who supported Sir
Wilfrid Laurier moulded their actions
to meet situations as they arose.
Under the coalition group of opportunists behind Mr. Borden tlu* reverse
has heen the case, and even now that
Parliament is again assembled, the
Government is so tightly in the grip
of highly protected interests that nol
ihe slightest move is Indicated towards the lowering of the tariff on
food or a serious effort to cope

lack of employment,

Solid trainloads nl irrigation farmers from the irrigated areas of

is one ol thc leading irrigation states
and artificial use of water is a vital
feature nf agriculture. A party of

state were shown over the Irrigated

The importance ol this movement
to the development of Western Canada can hardly be estimated. The fact
that thc foremost Irrigation farmers
of the United States, after a Person
al examination of Ibe irrigated area
iu Alberta, are selling iheir holdings
in Colorado and moving in train-loads
to Canada tells its own story. It is
the best assurance of the great poss-
bilities which await the Canadian irrigation district, as it shows that iu
the opinion of practical and successful irrigation farmers, the opportunities awaiting them iu Canada arc
greater than are to be found elsewhere.
Thc train ond <>( settlers already

to eclipse all oast records Other

policy in regard to timber and it is
tho policy of the partv to foster and
develope all Ultimate industries.
One ol the worst features oi the
present government was their vulgat
policy of spending public money for
political coercion. In tbe past few
nothing has been more 'brau-n and
corrupt than the expenditure of public money. Tbe public is not procuring full value for the money spent.
It is estimated to be only of from 20
to 50 per cent ellicient. H7.mi0.iiou
bas been sjH'nt in the past two years
lor roads and bridges. An engineer
m liummir out the amount of road
work done would think tbe road build
ers should have built railroads instead of highways, considering tho
amount expended. All over the province the road bosses tarry voters'
lists in their pockets and are more
concerned with getting names than
doing work, tame wardens are political wardens and fire-rangers are vote-
rangers. There are exceptions of
course. For every dollar spent, ,50
cents is for political service, It Is «
debasing thing that every white man
should not share in the expenditure ol
puhlic moneys. The rank and lile ol
the Conservative party is revolting
from this two or thiye man rule.
The government is suffering from
premature old age and senile decay.
Ten years ago, tbey proclaimed
that they rescued thc province from
bankruptcy. They borrowed money
at high rates of interest and sold the
public domain. Alter, ten years of
prosperity   and ten years oi udvaneiv
ment, there is no surplus. The
treasury is empty, ln the last two
years there had been a deficit 0f $Mr
000,000, an excess ot expenditures
over revenue, The government is
now arranging for u loan ol from
seven to ten millions. They prefer to
borrow large sums on one hand and
increase taxation on the other. It
is a question with them 0I either
curtailing expenses or keeping food in
the political trough. If they curtail
expense they will kill the machine.
The government at Victoria is not
a conservative government, The
watchword of thc Conservative party
has always been conservation. Mc
Bride's watchword is exploitation.
The Liberals offer an alternative party to which you may appeal when
you tire ol the present rule. Tho
ballot should be n Batted trust ami
not a party pawn. We appeal to all
good citizens to cast their next vote
lor tlie province and themselves, and
not for the present government.
In Introducing Mr. Brewster, tho
speaker said, "lhat he had two special qualifications ruracd honcstv nnd

Mr. Macdonald's address was punctuated throughout wilh applause and
he closed amidst hearty handdapping.
Mr. Ward then Introduced Mr. H. C.

Mr. Brewster referred to the previous speaker hy slating that he was

Just now they were on a campaign of

During the past two years the wonderful resources of this province had
heen drained to the extent of $20,-
000,000 for foodstuffs that had to be
imported to heep alive the employees of the mine mill and factory.
These foodstuffs should have been
raised in, this province.
The old land act gave to each individual the right to stake one mile
8quar0..| A new clause was included
whicb granted the right for land to
lie staked by agents and many men
bad staked land who never would
have climbed mountains or cone on
tlm trail in search of a location.
Kven under this law only one section was allowed, but later a 'joker'
was inset t<*d which gave agents right,
on the power ol attorney, for others.
Men ond women, in all walks of life,
throughout the United States and the
provinces were solicited tor their
power of attorney, which was
given practically for nothing, and a
wholesale alienation of the lands of
the province resulted. Now the average holdings of 114 syndicates and
individuals are over 12,000 acres each
There are three over 50,000 acres

payment of litis tax. The wild land
tax should bti bringing in $1,000,000
per year yel lho amount which hnd
heen collected, including licenses on
coal areas, was $158,000.
The onlv step which tlio government had taken to reduce taxation,
he declared, had been to remove the
revenue tax and put in its place tbo
eun tnx. which brought in practically the same amount. The government,
was showing favoritism to the speculators and was nol treating them as
it was treating those who were actually tilling the land in the mattefl
of collecting taxation.
During the last six years, over $1,-
000,000 was due thc trasury for wild
land taxes. Premier McBride had
spoken of the interest which the government received on the unpaid balances due on land sales, but, said Mr.
Brewster, the figures indicated that
upward of $2,000,000 was due to tho
government. lor interest. If this sum
were added to tlm million dollars owing for wild land tax and tho $12,-
000,000 due.on land sales, it would
be seen that a total of $15,000,000
was due tbe government from the
land speculators, which was more
than twice as much as the amount
received since 1005. Yet the government was going abroad to borrow in
order not to inconvenience the speculators. He contended the government
should have forced lhe payment of
taxes and should have compounded
the interest on overdue payments.
The minister o! land had said lhat
103,000,000 aires of land remained in
tbe prdvinee and hail given the impression thai this was agricultural
laud. It. 12, (losnell, provincial archivist, had stated that the available
agricultural land was about 15,000,-
000 acres, said Mr. Brewster. He declared thai about 33 per cent, of tbe
available agricultural land in the province had lieen alienated, instead of
2 per cent , as Mr. Bowser had stated
He spoke ot the susplus of $9,000,-
000 in 1912, which be declared had
been expended, suggested the government Imd wasteil money on royal
commissions and touched on the payment of $105,000 in connection witb
the Songbecs reserve. Of every dollars of the amount appropriated for
public works 50 cents was spent on
public works and 50 cents on political
works, he assorted.
Replying to Mr. Uoss' claim that
50,00)1 pi ople had been put on thc
lands ol British Columbia during the
past four years, Mr. Brewster said
there was only one trouble with that
statement and that was that it was
not true. According to the census ol
ten years ago, figuring the advance
or the cities of the province, 50,000
people could not bo found, much less
in the past four years. According to
tbe statistics, of production eiven each
year ]by Hon.Price Ellison the alleged
50,000 were not i cowboys, vegetarians
nor could any evidence of anything
they produced be found- The agricultural production of the province had
dwindled In the past two years.
With the opening of the Panama
canal tbo coast cities will become
more nnd more the front door of Canada and tbe great European emigration will come direct to this province. With no land ou which to
place them they will create coast
slums, congest tbe cities and prove
only a formidable detriment lo Lho
labor of the province.
Ms. Brewster explained ihe working

of injury being compensated without
the necessity of nny litigation. Ho
