Victoria, Sept. 37.—At any time
ihu news grows moro Uiau unusually
scarce in Victoria, rumor may always be depended upon tu produce
predictions ui aii early dissolution of
ilie legislature and au appeal to the
country. Such a prediction was
launched about a week ago, given sufficient dcllnltencss as to place the
date of a prospective general election
in December. The difficulties in the
way ol laktog a vote in such a coun-
try as Urltlsh Columbia during tlio
depth of winter in themselves destroy the probability of such a guess,
and un the other hand members of
lhe government declare emphatically
that there is nu intention of taking
an immediate appeal to Uie electorate. The recent tutus through lhe
Interior ridings taken hy Premier McBride, and hy 'his lands minister, Hon.
It. P. Green, did noi disclose a state
of public feeling sufficiently cordial
as to predicate the certainty ot a
government victory. At the same
tlmo tho government has now a nia-
joriiy of one at least upun the floor
of the house, and is therefore prepared to face another session with comparative equanimity, There is very
tittle prospect of any specially contentions legislation being brought
down during next session, as the
policy of the administration will be
to obtain its estimates as quickly a.s
possible and then dissolve lhe house.
Suggestions thai His Honor Lieutenant Governor Dunsmuir has requested
Premier McBrtdo to dissolve the
house at tho present time ate absolutely without justification. The expectation that the vacant attorney
generalship will be filled More the
governments next meets the house is
not endorsed unanimously by observing politicians. Thf only Two avail-
aide candidates for this portfolio are
Mr, Vi. It. Koss, of Kernie, and Mr,
w. .1 Bowser, K.C., of Vancouver,
neither of whom is regarded as sufficiently strong to be safely entrusted
with the opening of his constituency,
The only feature in the political
situation at tbe presenl time is created bv the recently projected element
■ >f lh" labor party as a distinct and
separate factor—which will have the
effect of considerably weakening the
socialistic ascendancy and is viewed
wilt more or less sincere favor by
both of the old parties. The Liberals declare ihat there is nothing extra-radical in the adopted platform of
labor; and that inasmuch as the labor
policy is in harmony wilh the pro*
vlncial Liberal platform, labor members may ba expected to vote and act
with the Liberal forces in the house
as against Conservatism and its ally
Socialism On this latter point
there are signs in the air already
Uiat tlie next session will see an at
least ostensible rupture between the
Conservative governmental forces and
the Socialists under Mr, llawthornih-
ivaite, This is a necessary prelude
as viewed bj both the Interested parties to a general election, Premier
Mi Hi ide having uhiloiihtedlv lost quite
as much popularity among bhe Conservatives of Hrilish Columbia1
through his alliance with the Socialists as through any sins of either
i.mission or commission, At tlio
same tune the socialists are inclined
to sharply catechise theii leader upon

pbesy has but flail foundation. Mr
Macgowan has manifested a disposition toward displays ol Booming In
ili'peiideuci', bul at lhe crucial moment of a vote has always been iu

so radical as io produce his resignation from the ministry, but Iw remains a staunch Conservative, nevertheless, and ihe government will net
go on) of existence through bis withdrawal of allegiance to ti'ae parly
wilh whicli lie has always boon identified. Mr. Clifford's lapses from
strict party control have not been
such as to occasion special alarm to
his leaders or to the party, nor does
bis disposition appear tc have undergone any special change. It Is true
that Mr. Kllison carried his objection
to llie government's course to that
extent- lasit session that he voted
against them on important issues. He
was well aware, however, of what
he was doing. His stand for the
rights anil interests ol the Midway &

Byron E. Walker Talks

Looks to See \ This Province a

Mr. Byrofto Walker, general manager of tht* Cuiudian bank ui W ulu-
meice, aud rucogui&ud every whom in
liuaiiolol oii'olrs a* ono ui wie, ablest
financiers in Canada, arrived in t'rau*
urouk lasi Ki'Kiaj nj special tram,
accompanied by bis family and sec rotary, it. l-.. Cassell and wile, and
Prof. Alexander, uf thc Toronto
niversiiy. The party was met ai
the station by Mr, 1*'. C, Malpas,
manager ul the local branch, who
loOKoil after then entertainment while,
they were in ihe city. The ladies
were given a drive to the Sl. Eugene
mission, and were delighted wnh the
scenery and the climate. The paily
look luncheon al the Wilga with Mr.
Malpas. Later      iu       lbe       tlaj
Mr. Walker was driven ovei
Bhe city so that ho might
have a chance to view the residential
portion ul the lowu. The part) left
about 11 o'clock by special train for
Kootenay Lauding, all ol ihem Leeliiig
thai they had enjoyed iheir brief stay
in Cranbrook.
Before the special lefl a representative of the Herald visited Mi. WaUei
tu his car and secured Irom Inm tin
presslons ut Cranbrouk and    Hrltuvh
lumbia. Holding the exalted position in Canadian finance thai lie
does, Mr. Walker naturally makes a
continuous study oi the conditions
Dl lhe entire Dominion, and yel it is
surprising tu see how a man who
lives thousands of miles from Uiilis.li
Columbia has su completely mastered
ihe condibloiis uf this province, li
lias been about four years since Mr.
Walker was over the Crows Nest
line and te expressed himsell as
highly pleased at the e\ IdeuceH ol
growth and permanent prosperity
ihat were made manliest during bis
trip through ibis section cl ibe
country. ile spoke especially ut
Kernie and Cranbrook as iwu towns
ihat showed greater iranst
along tbe line of progress ihan
ui the towns in tbe wesi ihat h
visited un this trip.
Referring tu British Columbia
Walker grew enthusiastic as to the
fuiure possibilities. "lea's ago be
bad said that the people oi lliis pro*
iuee weie in error tu luoklng Lo the
front dooi for ihe development oi
the resources, instead ot turningi to
the back duor. Tbe trade oi lln
Orient was to he considered as an important factor in promoting the
growth of lhe province, but hu had
predicted in ihe past Uial the time
would come when the great purchasing power ot the prairie countrj
would be impressed upon the pcuph
of Br It 1st) t'olumbia, and now thai
tune had arrived. The vast empire
at the back dooi of British Columbia, which was rapidly becoming
populated with an Industrious people,
a people whose products would always be limited to those ol au agricultural nature, would prove an
increasing market fur ihe varied products of British Columbia. In tbis
province the people can fi.ini.sh lish,
coal, fruit, lumber and iron, products
that the prosperous people ot ihe
prairie must buy. The development
of communities ,n the prairie provinces might he mole rapid, owing to
the fact that the conditions there
made it possible tu mote quickly
roallsro on ihe products produced, bui
wilh tlte vas-t water powers of British Columbia and Die unlimited supply ol taw material, this province
must become a manufacturing province, uud one that would meet the
growing demand of lie middle west.
It would resolve itself inlu a simple
question of physics, and nature, in
faking her course would hy this fortunate coiuDiinalioii of conditions,
bring prosperity to ihe peoplo of the
west. In Hie pasl people had lamented over tbe fact that Uie prairie
country was not sei lied up wilb
greater rapidity. The llmo was not
Ihen ripe. Hut when laud iu
Western states became scarcer,
when land'hunger again struck
great masses of the people who
cd l-i secure free homes, thin tin
had to (low toward the vacuum in
Western Camilla. During ibe l;,st
two or three years llinl Lido has
flowed toward Canada wilh di-lei

lauds i.f the.prairie ate being occupied

mdiliuns thai have been created for
her own benefit.        And  Ihis demand
will create the    need for transport

Some bad said ihai llu; timber re-
■iOM'ces would be' exhausted within
.ne ot two generations. This was
([iiesliotiable, bul be as it may, when
Uie limber was exhausted iron lu a

Columbia wuuld be greatly benefited
.ti thai way.
Mi. Walker was emphatic on tlie
nailer uf belter terms for lhe province of Hrilish Columbia, lie insisted that ihere should he a readjustment lhat Would give- Ihis province
her rights, British Columbia was
differently situated than any olher
if the provinces. When this province
joined the confederation she came in
>ikI gave her territory as her b-irth-
rtght, and her subsidies are Insignificant as compared with the other
provinces, When the two new trans-
.■'iiitincnial mads arc buill across
ins province there would follow government expense entirely out of proportion iu the Immediate fiuaucial
advantages gained. It would be unfair lo the people of lbe province, to
levy heavy taxes lot" this purpose, no
mailer huw prosperous they might be.
What was needed Was a campaign of
ducat ion on ihis matter of bettor
terms throughout the province, so

A good husband makes a good wife.
Some men can neither do without,

wretched alone in what is called
single blessedness, and they make
their homes miserable when ihey gel

dog, which could not bear to bt* loose
and howled when he was tied up.
Happy bachelors are happy husbands,
and a happy husband is ttie happiest
of men. A well matched couple carry a joyful life between ihem, as the
i wo spies carried the cluster of
Eschol. They multiply thell joys by
sharing ihem,' and lessen their troubles by dividing ihem. This is line

There is an opportunity for every

We do admire a manly boy, one wbo

tbe Herald one day ibis week,

In Cranbrook was in lie Herald oflice when tho papers were being run

There are evidently some government officials who labor undei' tbe impression thai a public olliee is a
private snap.
The Conservative party as a whole
will never accept Leader Borden's
ideas of government ownership, That
is loo radical for ihe old line Conservatives.
It is too bad ihat Dick iMcBrld
was not broad-minded enough to Invite Mr. Macdonald, leader of the
opposition, lo accompany him in
Ottawa on thc mission to secure better terms for this province. The
mistake that Mr. McBride is making
is in endeavoring to make the proposition a political question. Mr,
Byron Walker, general manager of
the Canadian Bank of Commerce,
very aptly remarked that it was nol
a political question. Tlie assistance
of a keen, analytical mind like that
possessed by Mr. .Macdonald, would
have been invaluable to Mr, McBride
in presenting tbo claims of British
Columbia. In this matter there is
no place for buncombe. The authorities at Ottawa will lie looking for
sound arguments.
There will be three candidates in
the raee for the Conserbative nomination for member, and perhaps four.
Aside from Messrs. Cavin, Harvey
and Rogers, it is now rumored that
City Solicitor Thompson may enter
the contest. Mr. Thompson lias rallied the burden of several campaigns
in bills districl on bis shoulders in
t-he way ol lining much of the hard
work, and tbere are a number of bis
friends wlo think that be should

W. D. Hill, of Hill & Co., said to the "Herald" this morning:
" I tried to find a little time to fix up an ad. this week, but could
not do it. I have been busy with travellers every afternoon and
evening this week. And we are getting our stock in shape to
reduce. It must be done. By the way, tell your lady readers that
we have on a special sale of Dress Goods suitable for women and
children, bought direct from the manufacturer in a job lot, the
regular price of which is 75 cents, and we are selling this week for
371. It is a bargain they cannot afford to overlook. And you
might tell them also that we are disposing of the balance of the
Ladies' and Children's Hats at less than wholesale price. That is
all. I must hurry and arrange room for a big carload of iron beds
and mattresses that are soon to be here. Our furniture business is
growing so that it takes considerable of our time. You might tell
the men that the fall stocks of 20th Century Suits and Overcoats are
even better than ever in style and makeup, and that is saying a good
deal.   I will give you an ad. next week, but have no time to-day."

agricultural pursuits be found the
mini sought panacea, and is now in

It has been about four vears since
Mr. Hamilton last vlsilcd Cranbrook

with the advancement made by tlte

very important question to Im; considered here and that is sewerage.
'Not thai any action need to be taken
righl now so far as putting iu sewers, for as long as lhe town is as il is
now, and the conditions are carefully
watched, there is no pressing need of
a sewer system. Digging sewers iu
this gravel is going lo be a very expensive proposition, and the plan
.should provide for a shallow sewer in
consequence. There is nc need to
have your sewers deep enough to
drain closets', in basements. Basements are no places for closets, but
thc city council should at this time
have a survey made that would include a comprehensive plan of drainage, either by sceptic tanks or otherwise, and a map made of the same
so that people putting up large buildings would know how to arrange
tlieir plumbing. Another good plan
that is adopted in Victoria, and that
Is  to have your sewers in the lanes
Instead of on the streets,    There are
many good reasons for this.

There was a strike of the machinists nl thc C. P. R. shops last Monday morning, but perhaps not a dozen
people in town outside of tvhe members nf the "Machinists association
knew anything about it. Tliere had
been a request for a slight increase
in wages all over ihc western division
of the 0. P. R., but there had been
no answer given. Ii was decided that
a strike would he called Monday
morning at a certain hour unless the
company granted the request. Tie
men in the Cranbrook shops were out
only ten minutes when ihey got word
ilai the matter had been settled in a
satisfactory manner, and that a wage
of forty cents au hour for ten hours
bad been granted,

The tenders for the rest ot the
public build ing were opened last
Saturday and tbo figures allowed that
lhe lowest tender combined with the
contraci price for lbe basement was
bel ween $3,000 and $-1,01111 higher lh;1n,
the combined appropriation * of the
city and province. Mayor Rogers,
whn has charge of the mailer for tho
city, is naturally worried over tho
situation, as the contract for , tho
other porl ion has been let and work
already commenced. On Tuesday Mr.
Rogers left for Arrowhead where ho
was to meet Commissioner Green and
see what could be done in the way
of getting the government to put up
more money. It is a good bet that
the pcoplo nf Cranbrook will not vote
another cent for lheir share of the
building.    Tbey Ibink tbey have done
