Beyond any shadow ol a doubt the
greatest budget speech ever delivered
hy any finance minister in the British Columbia legislature, was that
of lion. R. Ci. Tatlow, presented on
Wednesday lust. Mr. Tatlow made
no attempt ut oratory, but his plum
statement of the facts, was so eloquent of the province's wonderful
progress and possibilities that il
did not require the garniture of high
Bounding phrases or the aid nl the

Couched in simple language, such as
anyone with a knowledge of English
eould understand and only in his

the possibilities ol the Pacific cuasl

and he did so with success.

At  oui
n the estimates of revenue and expenditure for the province, tor the
fiscal year pnding Marcli .'list, 1910,
which have just heen issued, under
thc head of public works, that is for
the construction of roads, trails and
bridges, the Cranhrook district is
given $25,000; the Fernie district,
iUS.Odfi, and the Columbia (Golden)
district, $22,850. In the matter ol
lhe civil service salaries at the Cranbrook oiliee, Mw* following figures are
given: Government acent, SlfiOO;
clerk, SHliO, clerk, $7*0, clerk, *720;
clerk, $000; deputy assessor and collector, S1360; typewriter, $U0O.
We are of the opinion  that     there
is not  another    town       in the province of British   Columbia with eight
hotels that is more law-abiding than
the town of Cranhrook.     This      is
due, not  to tbe etlicicncy      of    the
police, for they have little   or    no
crime to contend with, but     to    thc
good sense and   most  excellent  imitt-
gement of the hotel proprietors.
sp.akmg of the member fur Yale-
arihoo,  the Montreal Herald, u dis-
nctlj Liberal paper, says:
In Mr. Burrell, Yale-Cariboo
has evidently been fortunate
enough to secure a representative
who has exceptional qualifications
for parliamentary service, and
who should prove a useful member of the house. He has remarkable felicity of expression,
and impresses his hearers us being a man of moderation and
cool judgment. He yesterday told
a llattering tale of British Colum-
hia's potentialities, and while he
touched but brielly on the subjects of "better terms" and
oriental immigration, be made it
clear that in regard to the latter
question the people of British
Columbia would never be satisfied until it is settled, and settled
right, according to their views.
These are, iu brief, that It Is
better to delay the development
of our natural resources than to
com tbem Into cash at the cost,
of lowering our standard of
civilization. The problem is a
large and serious one, and the
west is fortunate if it can have
its case presented by thc mouth
of men ot such exceptional powers
or exposition as Mr. Burrell. It
might have sent a class of men
who would alienate sympathy,
and weaken their cause, by intolerance and demagogery—for
such men too often enme tn the
front in uew communities.

roaring with laughter. Thc affair
was truly unique in every way and
such a success that it reflected more
than ordinary credit upon the great
work performed by the committee.
Nearly all of tlie spectators waited
until the time for unmasking, which
was nearly 12 o'clock. Mrs. R. Burton, Mrs. M. Barney and Messrs.

when they took their position upon
the stage they no doubt realized the
difficult task tbey had to perform
with so many good character representations to choose from. The
masqueraders indulged in a march
about thc hall to give the judges

authority was given by a bill incorporating the Flathead Valley
Railway company recently incorporated by the Provincial legislature.
The road already has becn built

Tlio Saturday Sunset, ol Vancouver, insists thai it is time tor
Hie McHride government lo announce
a comprehensive nnd sane railwaj
policy. The Herald heartily agrees
with the Sunset. Manitoba- Saskatchewan uud Alberta governments
.<ie already doimr » vast amount of
work along the line of development
hy providing for branch lines in their
different provinces. llritish Columbia must take action sunn or the
prosperity that this province is entitled i o by M s wonderful resourcus
will come to future generations nnd
not to Hie present. It is well to
haw* a government ihat can so
handle Uie hnsiness ol :i province as
io show lhe balances on tlie right side
nf the ledger at the close of a fiscal
year. W-t it must be borne in
mind that much of the surplus of
ihis year in llritish Columbia is due
to the sale ni permanent resources In
ilie province. This surplus looks
well upon paper and makes a nice
(heme for discussion on the political
platform. Hut we believe that the
time has now eome for the McRiiile
government tn take a firm stand in
regard to the development, of the resources of the province. This ean
he done hy tlic encouragement of the
Imi Id ing nf railways under proper
safeguards ami a more liberal policy
in the construction of mads, trails
and bridges throughout tht* province.
We would in thei see a deficit of several millions that had been properly
and honestly expended in the development of t-he country, than a surplus
of tlie same amount and nothing doing in the way of development. We
sliould like to see the Alberta policy
in the way of giving assistance to
branch lines of railway bv guarantee'
ing Hie bonds issued lor construction, but not one cent in cash subsidy nor onr acre of land. Wc nad
Hy concede that this development
problem is a most serious one for
anv government nnd arc of opinion
that the   MeBride government    will
along these lines and less in lhe
uf political   achievements.      A
and honesl polity should receive
cordial support oi ilu*   whole po
ment, .md when that day comes,
we trust   tbat it   may be soon,
will lie iin*   dawn   ul a new era

M, s McCarthy, IU*., of Cahrary,
Vllu., announces that he will not be
able to accept thc position of government leader for the Conservative
part) in Alberta, Mr, McCarthy is
exceedingly wise, lt is far better to
hold the posit Iou that he docs ns a
■imminent member ol the opposition
in the Dominion parliament, rather
than in accept tho doubtful honor as
leadcl   of Q   weak opposition    of    the
parliament of Alberta, The man
who takes Mr. McCarthy for a foul,
political or otherwise, has another
guess coming. This will give an opportunity to the loyal Dr. Brett or
the silver-tongued Robertson, who
now ean come forward as second
choice candidates.
The Farmers' institute has got

In the opinion of   the Herald   the
Laurier government made the most
grievous error when they disallowed
the last Natal Act passed by the
provincial parliament. It is true
that thc courts ot British Columbia
hud declared the act ultra viris, yet
it would have been far better, politically and otherwise, if the Doniio-
ion government had permitted the
matter to take its regular course to
the Privy 0 ouncil for a final decision. The people of Eastern Canada
must break away from the delusion
under which they seem to rest, that
British Columbia will ever be satis-
lied with any legislation tbat will
permit an unrestricted entrance of
Chinese, .Japanese and Hindoos. The
United States has its treaties with
the countries of the Orient, and aside
from a little trouble now and then
aroused by insane and irresponsible
agitators, ' there has been no trouble
of an International character, notwithstanding their exclusion laws.
.Other colonies of the British Empire
have enacted drastic laws regarding
Immigration from the Orient and
there bus been no trouble based upon
Impelial reasons. Wc believe that
British Columbia should be ■■iven the
light lo dictate her own policy as to
immigration and uot be forced to be
used as a dumping ground for the
scum of cheap labor in the countries
across Uic Pacific. Wc well understand tliat ou this question railways
aud other large corporations that arc
extensive employers of labor, are
anxious to see the living wage of thc
white man cut down to the wage ol
the foreigner, who has uo home no
Cod and no love of country. Like
the Standard Oil company, these corporations have no politics, but are
willing to contribute to the success
of any party that will give them
what they ask. We believe in a
white British Columbia, not as a
political cry, but as an actual fact,
and when the dav comes that the
price charged by the cheap foreigner
will become the basis of the wage-
earner iu this province, the west for
the first Ume will then understand
the true meaning of the march of
the unemployed.

li is said Uial. there is a skeleton
in every household. Thv skeleti* is
locked up—put away iu a cupboard—
ami rarely seen. Only the people inside the house*know of its existence',
Hut the skeleton, nevertheless, can-
nut long be concealed. It comes lo
light someway nr another. Tbe
most common skeleton is poverty;
poverty is a great secret, kept at
ntu- iia'ins bv one-half ot tha
world from the other hall. When
there is nothing laid hy—nothing aav.
.■ii to relieve sickness when it comes
—nothing to alleviate tie wants ol
"Id age, then ir. tbe skeleton hidden

ami u c should be the last to encourage a miserly desire to board amiong
anv class but wc cannot help r*v»g.
nmiig in money thc means ot lite,
the means of comfort, the means of
maintaining an honest independence.
We would, therefore, recomroU
everv young mau end woman who
read this paper to begin lite by
learning to save; to lay up tor the
future a certain portion of every
week's earnings, be it little or much;
to avoid consuming every week or
every -'ear the carbines ol that trc-d"
or vear; and we counsel them to do
this, as they would avoid the heritors' of dependence, destitution and
healxdry. Tt 1» a true sayinir that
a pennv in thc purse is hetter than
a friend al court. The first penny
saved is a step in the worM. The
fact of its being saved and laid up
indicates self-denial -iorethouf-ht,
prudence and wisdom. It may be
Ihe gem nf future happiness, the beginning of iudependeice.
It's best to do the work give* us
to do no matter bow distasteful it
may be, just as well as it can be
dune, not oiechuically, but with
the whole heart. If it is a round
of household duties day after day,
make it ph-asant tiy scattering:
gleams ot sunshine all along the'
way, making a bright spot here,
anj a cosy corner tberir. Let tho
arrangement of youi table be' ft bit
of artistic grouping, male it a picture with a' new sitting etery day.
It really' doesn't cost much to be
fijf'Py, if w-e only kuuw how.
Here is just one illustration ot the
wisdom ot keeping a hot of Zam-Buk
alwavs handy. It is a true record
of the various uses to which this
great balm Was put—witb highly
satislactoly results in every ease—in
just oue family, and during a tew
mouth.- only. Mrs. I'. J. irlam. ot

"I hate louad Zam-Huk so very

■I'itie most important loeal event ol
the week occurred o> Monday, at 3
o'clock, when A. ,t, Morris, as returning officer lor Comoi-Atlin district, declared William Temple-aan, ot
Vicitorla publisher, elected to tbe
Iiotuiaioa House ot Commons by "acclamation. A few minute* before
two, L. Orippen, a clerk in the provincial government office, came into
the court room, where the rettirniu"
Officer and others were, mounted a
chair, and set tbe bands ot the eight-
day -clock -bock -fire minutes, the
spectators making humorous and derisive remarks at bis action. But
tbe clock stopped. When bis watch
snowed two o'clock, Rctumiu- Officer
Morris tapped his gavel and declared
the uotniuatiou closed, then announced that the only nomination made
was that oi William Templeman,
wh'ntu lie declared dul" elected. The
reasons Michael Manson was not
nominated may be given as:
L.The latitig down of Premier
'J. The opposition ol the head men
in Hie cm"!,"' ul the L'nion
I'ual eompanv at Cumberland.
The rank and Iile of the party were
willing to fight; hut, lbe leaders and
Hu imu frnm wlmni the sinews of
war were lu cnitie absolutely refused
io help. Uud Premier MeBride said
the word, Mansoii would have been
humiliated, campaign money or
liimpaign money. The question then
is: "Wlm made Premier McBude
lav down?" Br. Ilenty F.sson
Young, I.E.P., provincial secretary,
hadn't enough influence to du it, for
Ins political influence is uinflned to
half :< dozen provincial constables
and a few ■ personal Iriends in At tin

Why Does
Business Grow ?
|^ HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equiped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It   is   easy   to see why the
HERALD'S   business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us. We can please you.

How Guelph Merchants Deal With
Slow Pay Customers" is the subject
interesting article in the January number of the "Dry Goods
Review." It concerns both custom-
ir and merchant and is a solution to
i problem that bas been a long
landing trouble to the merchant.
It was last June that the official
■ullector svstem was established in
Guelph. The Retail Merchants Association tliere, after a lot of work
md discussion, brought out their
lew Idea.... Their object originally
was to appuiut a collector to act as
an ollicial of their association, aud
to be recognized as such. Tbey foresaw ihe advantage there would he in
it. even in the saving of collection
fees alone, and believed that rather
i hau sir a recognized collector calling
periodically at their homes, many of
their delinquent customers would pav
up. They finallv decided that it
would bo better to have their officer
paid a salary than a commission,
and selected for the position, in the
person of ao ex-storekeeper. D. A.
srrogg-je. They made a bargain
with bim lo take over the drumming
up their bad accounts for $700 a vear.
This amount with the rent ot tbe
collector's olhee in the heart of tbo
city, telephone fees, stationery, and
other expenses, amounting in all to
about SsflO, they decided to raise by
taxing the merchants who would reap
the benefit ot the scheme.
A collection committee was appointed, consisting ot the president
of the association, K. Waters; tbo
secretary, II. O. Occomore; G. B.
Rvan, a dry goods man and J. A.
McCrea, a grocer. They got together and drew up a list of tbo
eighty odd merchants who belonbed
Lo the association, assessing each
man what they believed was the fair
amount, or a fair share of the collector's expenses.
