their opinion in a most omphalic
manner at the polls on the ami of

that although it was said ilmtv Bob
Green had Iteen forced from the eabi-
net, and thai Hick McBride was, as
a member ol the council, as much
responsible as was Hub Qreen.
Speaking ol the Cranbrook
district. he said that since
lie had been iu the house he had
exerted himself to secure needed improvements lor the Cranbrook district, hut had been jciven nothing but
promises. In (act one ot the ministers, on u visit to this district, said
to a party that, he realized that this
district was entitled to fur more

thanked the convention for what, they

Nelson, B. C.| Jan. J.—.I. A. Macdonald spoke to a crowded bouse lu re
to-night witli Hi. Hall, the local
Liberal candidate, and below is a
hnei resume of bis remarks:

and rounds ol applause, and lor over

representative meeting was all his,

prove oi Ins alliance.
The Moliriue government never hud
any jixeii principle except lo retain
uuee.
it was elected on party lines, but
it broke those at once by the alliance
with ilawUioriilhwuile. This is
tiown conclusively by tbe conduct
ol tnese two men, tluwUioruUiwuitt
aud Alcllilde, commencing with the
icttlers' rigin bill and ending Willi
Uie C. ic W. bill.
Thai the government was withonl
a single guiding principle except tne
retention of otbec, at any sacrifice ol
Ihe Interests ot the province, was
mrtlier excmplihed in its 'hesitation
to do aiiythiug beyond tampering
with existing legislation.
Before the election ol 1903 McBride had it heralded abroad that lie
had a magnllleent policy regarding
railways, which would give sections
of the province which were being
nelil buck lor want ot tlieni a chance
to expand. It was asserted that
2500 miles oi railways were to be
uuilt under this grand scheme. lu
every platform the progressive policy
of the government was proclaimird
and the people thought that at least
on this subject the McBride government hud some definite plan of
action.
The first session was held. The
government said they would place
their proposals before the house. The
time ol the session dragged along.
The ministry made excuses, Irom duy
to duy for its failure to do something. But they did nothing. They
were between the devil and Uie deep
sea; their promises ou the one baud
their utter incapacity on the other.
Then a bright thought struck the
premier-he would hold a summer
session. The Colonist anil the Newt
Advertiser asserted that this was Uie
really wise and statesmanllkq
course. It was a question, they asserted, requiring immediate action
and its importance required a special
session.
No summer session was called. The
government dectHved Uie legislature
aud the people utterly, and, apparently wlUiout shame, these solemn assurances were unbiushinglv
broken.
Another session came, and again
the government promised to let the
house and tire people know what thev
inteirded to do in fulfillment of their
broken promises. This time the
government had a railway police It
was a policy prepared hi- the C'una-
dian Pacific Railway companv ant
you may be sure it was not received
with an eye to the Interest of the
province. The proposal was to give
the 0. P. R. a bonus ol 11,000,000 to
beip that wealthy corporation to
build a railway south from Spruce's
Bridge. This huge graft was only
ahandoiuil by Mr. McBride and his
ministry after a long struggle with a
couple of his more conscientious followers, who absolutely refused to
stand tor it.
That this bonus, was not retuilred
but was to be so much found money
tor the ft. P. R. is shown by thi-
fact, that a few months after this
attempt of the C, P. R. aud the McBride government to despoil the
people ol tl,600,000 in cash, construction was commenced on the
road in question without any bonus
at all. But il the McBride government is sustained the ruilvay company will come again; don't make
any mistake about that.
In the session ot 190(1 Mr. McBride
further developed his railway policy.
Again the C. P. P.. assumed the
reins ol government in this province,
whipped the socialists Into line with
their allies, and, in spite ol the opposition ol one or two honest Conservatives, succeeded this time in
getting what they wanted, or at
least the first instalment of what
they wanted, 800,000 acres of land,
in payment, lorsooth, tor broken
promises made by the railway company to build the Columbia & Western railway! right through.
But the C. P. R.-McBride-Haw-
tliornthwiiite government had yet
another railway string to their bow-
It would be too bad to make this
poverty stricken railway corporation
pay its taxes. Government by the
people had given nh.ee to government
by the 0. P. K„ and their willing
lools. So whv should the C. P. It
pay taxes wbeii It holds the reins ol
power? No-lc* the people pa v.
And Hint was what happened. The
peoplo had to pay. The railway
corporation escaped to Hie tunc ol
over half a million dollars.
Then there was the Katet island
transaction.      The  great   terminal

OBSERVATIONS   |
BY THE OLD MAN.        »
^MtMStrwa^-we*.^**'***'
Never before have the people ol the
province becen subjected to sucb
treatment us lias been handed out to
tlie Liberal organization ol this
district in regard tu tho voters list.
Although the election lias been announced since the !1M1i of last mouth,
and it is now the inth ol January,
yet the Liberals have turn unable to
secure a copy of tbe lists. The
powers that be seem lo forget that
the lists are for Hie people, and
not for any one particular party,
and the cost is paid out ol the taxes
levied upon the members ol all parties alike. Such petty devices to
secure what they might think is partisan advantage illy becomes what
in called the great party of British
Columbia.
THE PREMIER'S ADDRESS
(Nelson News.)
In reply to the virile declaration
ol policy issued a few days ago by
.1. A. Macdonald, leader of the Liberal party, Premier .McBride has addressed to the electors of British Columbia a letter which purports lo
explain tils position, defend his record an outline his plans for Hie future should he be again returned to
power. After a careful perusal ol
those portions of Ihe letter published
by the Conservative press, which
may be assumed, are selected because they contain the kernel of his
Argument, the impression left upon
the mind is one of disappointment.
Weak from beginning to end, apologetic in its lone, and enlirelv
satisfactory in its attempt to
plain away the suspicions circum-
cumstances surrounding so many ol
the official acts of his ministry, it
winds up with one of the most (lag-
rant, open and unblushing attempts
to bribe the electorate that has yet
been recorded in the varii-d political
annals of the Dominion.
For three years the province has
been held under a tyrannical treasury
heel; funds have been hoarded and
imposts raised; the people have bmn
taied to the limit, every available
cent being taken out of them on
some pretext nr another. And during all this time, public works have
been starved. Roads everywhere
haw been neglected and allowed to
fall into such a serious slate of des-
P»* t*at many times the sum
whleh, If wisely and timely expended,
would have kept them In good or*
will now he required to restore them
to serviceable condition. Settlements crying for transportation facilities have been ignored, and progress
in many districts has been seriously
retarded. Every appeal to the government has been met with the surly
response that the lack ot fund* made
it Impossible to lend any assistance.
Now wltb the approach of a general election, the whole tone of the
government Is suddenly changed.
Ihe premier brazenly announces that
™ treasury has been filled, that the
provincial revenue is more than
ample, that the government's problem Is no longer how lo get money
but where to spend it! Inferentlal-
y, fie Intimates that If his ministry
is sustained every riding which

lie chest, with a fair share of .the
Hoard wrung Irom the people during
three years of high taxation and no
date tor Cranhrook riding, met
about eighty electors ul Moyie iu
McGregor ball last Wednesday nigbt.
Il was more ol an organization
roundup than a campaign spiel He
spoke for about half an hour, explaining to the audience the many
goiMl points ol Mr. Harvey, and what
a brainy man he was, aud also told
why .Mr Harvey should be elected in
ibis riding. Mr. Harvey stated
that although the nominee of the
Conservative patty, he would get tlie
support ol a large number of Liberals
in this riding, as not a day passes
in Cranbrook but what dozens of Liberals come to him, and say they
consider him the greatest political
Garibaldi the world has yet produced, and thai they would work ami
vme for him. He also had a kind
word for the laboring man, and even
went as far us Ui say that it the
laboring men of this riding put a
candidate in the Held, and elected
him, he did not think tin- (labor candidate) could do so much as lie (Harvey; for the masses, as his heart,
soul, head and feet were witli the
man who toiled. He said, il elected, he would not go to Victoria us
a slavish supporter ol the present
govurnuietit, bet would give them an
Independent support. He also stated
that the labor platform and Tory
platform were Identical.
Thomas Caven, Harvey's right
bower, ga\e a short talk, and wound
up by saying that organized labor in
this camp can lake bis wort) for It.
Harvey is on the square, and would
do the right, thing for the Industrial
class, il elected. He did not state
what it was Harvey would do, bill
probably it is loan them money, on
approved security.
Fred Smyth also threw a nice bou-
ipiet at Mr. Harvey.
Three cheers were then breathed
lor Mr. McBride, and the open meeting closed.
Mr. Harvey asked all Conservatives
i remain, and organize lor the
fight, and about sixty-five dropped
in line and hit the trail lor home—
the balance remaining, which shows
how strong Harvey is in this part
ol the riding.
Harvey spoke iu Moyie last Wednesday night, and the next day it
snowed, as a gentle reminder of
what will happen to that gentleman
on February 2.

Mr. Jardine had only been employed a few weeks at Hillcrcst, and
while in Cranbrook spending Christmas with bis family, stated that
the engine he was to have charge of

of the pioneers ot the town, and was

two yens ago ami there are a host
of friemls here who regret his untimely death and extend the deepest
sympathy to the bereaved family. A
widow and six little daughters, tho

more deplorable, they are left in very

NELSON'S VIEW OF IT

AND  ALDERMEN TO COMPLETE THEIR WORK.
(Nelson Canadian.)
Il is now practically assured that
Nelson will be spared the excitement
ot a municipal election campaign in
l;i07. Tbe number of Important matters still before the council, it is
generally conceded, require continuity
of administration as well as a board
ol experienced  moil.
The council of linut has been char-
octal zed by a spirit of harmony
that hud been unknown tor several
years, und old dividing lines ate
practically obliterated, to the satisfaction ..I all parties.
it ia conceded     that Mayor Oillett
is worked faithfully and efficiently
iu Uie cily'u interests, ami bus also
ii an impartial and courteous
Ihnan ol the council. While be
might have been willing to step aside
in favor of another tried nnd proved
man, it is undoubtedly the general
wish that he remain at the helm for
nt, leasl another year.
Tbe inauguration of the civic power
plant and the readjustment of financial relations between tho city and
its many customers fc power, water
or electricity require, it is agreed,
the control of a body which has already carefully considered Uroso
questions as a whole and in detail.
As far as known at present all the
aldermen are willing to return to the
board and give to the city the benefit of their experience until the new
enterprise is successfully launched.

POLITICS WARNING UP
LIBERALS,        CONSERVATIVES
AND LAHOKITKS ARE ALL
0RTTIN0 ih:sy.
Last Saturday evening, without
any formal notice, aside from ihe
word being passed a round between
live and six o'clock, the Liberals held
a meeting at their committee rooms.
There was no business on hand, no
programme prepared iu advance, and
yet there were between 7f> and Hid
people present, and the meeting
developed into a great rally, with all
kinds of enthusiasm. It was nn
auspicious ojM*ning of the Liberal
work iu this town and augurs well
for the success of the Liberal party.
The Conservatives have established
lieadtjuaiters in tlie Aiken block on
Cranbrook street, with Joseph Kyan
in charge.
The Labor party have their headquarters next door to the Conservative committee rooms, with J. A.
Macdonald, of Moyie,  in charge.
The Liberals have located Ihelr
committee rooms in the offices for-
merlv occupied by W. F. flurd on
Baker street.
Mr. Thompson, manager of tho
Harvey campaign, has for his assistants Joseph Ryan and A. B.
(trace.
The Lalmt party held a meeting on
.Monday night with a large attendance. Speeches were made by Thos,
Kelly, the candidate, S. McDonald
and others. In the adjoining 10
speeches were also lielng made by
members of the Conservative pnrtv,
and Ihe .speakers could be heard    in
FERROL is nn Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil, and if
it were nothing more it would take front rank because
nf the quality and quantity of the oil used and the
scientific method ul" preparation, But FERROL has
special chums which take it out uf the ordinary class
of Emulsion altogether.    For instance:
FBRR0I. combines Iron and Phosphorus with the
oil, and no other emulsion contains these ingredients,
although it is well known that they should always be
administered together, as each is the complement ot
the other.
FERROI. is so scientifically prepared that the first
processes uf diction are actually performed in the
process uf manufacture, and the emulsion is ready
for instant absorption into the blood. This is of the
utmost importance to persons with delicate stomachs.
FE RRO L
unlike other emulsions, is positively palatable, and
not one in a thousand find any difficulty in taking it
FERR0L contains tlie three essentials of life, viz.:
Fat, Iron, and Phosphorus—they have never been
combined before.
FERROL holds the record for increasing the weight.
FERROI. has received more endorsntions from
medical men than any other preparation on the
market.
FERROL will cure any case of Consumption that is
capable of cure.
FERROL is an absolute specific for Colds, Croup,
Bronchitis and all kindred troubles.
FERROL is an unfailing remedy for nervous prostration, Chronic Rheumatism and Neuralgia.
Finally, the formula is freely published, and in
taking FERROL you " Know what you take."

(Continued Irom page one.) '
townaitfi was a sjilewlld Aivei. liun
asset belosgeil tu Uie people. Thrie
was no otlier point saving equal ail-
rantages; yet, by secret Healing witu
speculators., tuis great asset was
turned over at the price ol 11 per
acre. Mr. McBride said tbe laud
was poor, only tolrd class, not good
lor crops. Hence tire bargain was a
good one. Wait till tlie lots are
put on the market next summer aud
see what British Columbians will
nave to pay tor these third clasa
lands—not til for crops.
McBride sard in an interview a year
ago that be never bad any doubt but
that tbe <3. T. P. would go to Katen
island; that tbe officials of that road
considered it by far Uie best place.
Why then did be give away three-
quarters ot this splendid asset?
Yes, the province is indeed prosperous, and a province which can prosper notwithstanding spoliation sucb
as tbe Kaien island deal, the Columbia & Western grant and other equally deplorable transactions, is one ot
which we should indeed be proud.
The premier bad said that he did
not deal with a band of adventurers
in tbe Kaien island land sale; that lie
dealt, not with the Andersons and
Larsens, but with tbe G. T. P. direct, well, it was astonishing to
lind that, weeks after the deal was
said to have been closed tiie adventurers were found In Montreal selling
to tho O. T. P. people their own
lands—according to JacHride— for the
trifling advance ol 140,000. It bad
been stated that Mrs. Anderson's
name bad been unfairly dragged into
the controversy, but that was not
so; she bad come Into tbe story easily and naturally. Hon. It. P. O-rera
had stated at Uie preliminary investigation that tbe terms ot this
secret order in council bad been held
back from the people's representatives, and tbe whole deal, bad been
discussed by him with Mrs. Anderson
on the street corners and, naturally,
Mrs. Anderson became a parly to the
enquiry.
McBride and bis remarkable following, having nothing.to offer themselves, charge the opposition with
policy. The charge is absurd.
Just as the acts of the government
constitute the policy ol the government, so tbe record ol the opposition
in tbe house constitutes its policy
lar as the measures Introduced
into the bouse gave scope to the
opposition to express in a tangible
way its views.
Tbe government loan bill is a
declaration that the government believes In making the present generation pay tor improvements to be
enjoyed by future generations. Tbe
opposition's attitude on that bill
declared Its policy ol making future
generations bear their fair share ol
the costs ol permanent Improvements.
The Conservatives declared their
policy on the great question of the
education of the young when they
tampered with the public schools act
In order to squeeze a little more in
taxes from the ratepayer. The Liberals declared their policy on that
subject by a strenuous opposition to
tbe bill and in pointing out that in
addition to its vlciouraess in principle it was unworkable. A year's
experience with the new act has
borne out to tbe letter toe Liberal
position. He said plainly: "Otve
us toe oM act with Its principle ot
.state eductiMc* ol children and not

Tbe McBride government declared
its policy when a increased laiuuiuu
uud cut dowu the expenditures lor
roads, bridges and ouer puuuc wuik^
absolutely necessary io expanding
industries.
Tue opposition declared its policy
when it said mat increased taxauou
was. not uecessary, notwithstanding
iiiai the llnaiivcs 01 me province were
not iu a    aalislaciui)   toiuiilluu.    HO
pointed uut that with uul lands,

case wuat was wanted was the tui-
icctiuu oi taxes uom uhose who were
.lodging them, tor instance, tne c. i'.

1'he school act was a lauieuuM-.

up at the following session was lililo

uad that a ioiuiuismou had iu be appointed lo hud uul wuat was too

uave bueu amended and re-amended,
wli-Ue one of tut great essentials, tne
protection ol itie forests uutu Dru
uas been neglected— and Wis too in
the face ol tepcaled piote^>ta fiom thu
opposition.
Tiie government's whole school Irg-
islat.on was su ordeied as io increas*
tbe burden uf ihe taxpayer, quite unnecessarily. (Applause). "l*erson-
aily 1 believe mat tne state should

(.Applause.)
lJealing with the question ot "Better Terms," the speaker said McBride had been turned down not by
Ottawa, but by Uie provincial premiers Ihemselves, some uf wbom were
Conservatives. Tbe question—belter
terms—should be kept out ol party
politics, and if a Liberal government
were returned, they would demand,
and obtain, satisfactory bettet terms
where Jicbride had signally tailed.
Turning to the question oi eight
hours fur siucltcnncti, Mr. Macdonald
told uf his stand iu the matter and
how, as a result, smeltermen had
obtained shorter hours, not only
without a strike or lockout, but
much sooner than they would have
had the Hawthornthwalte bill been
passed when lirs-t introduced. lie
believed in industrial peace being
maintained wherever pussible and hero
the smeltermen hud got relief without a protracted struggle. Ho
would leave them to say if he had
acted fairly and rightly oi nut.
Mr. Macdonald advocated a separate department of labor and immigration, pointing out what good
work such a department could do
under existing conditions- "1 am
opposed to the Orientalism that is
Sweeping over the province. I am
against the Hindu. lie can never
assimilate with tbe dominating, with
the only race thai ought lo be hero
in B. C. (Applause.) We only want
the best class uf people, those who
can take care ol themselves and not
those who have to be taken care of
by tin* state.   (Applause.)
The government should have parcelled out and surveyed the best uf
tbe public lands ami have provided
maps and the necessary information
which is wanted by' settlers and
which, as all knew very well, could
not now be got.   (Applause.)
Tlie question of better protection
from forest fires should be taken up
seriously, as should also the question
of irrigation. A commission should
be appointed to go into the whole
matter.
Mr. Macdonald closed with a request that bis hearers make up their
own mitrds, draw their own conclusions and mark their ballots on February 2nd accordingly.
