LEADER McDONALD loyally sustained i
The Liberals Go On Record On ImportantMalters
One of the most remarkable political demonstrations ever soon in tho
province of British Columbia, and
without doubt as great a personal
triumph as has been achieved by nny
poi i Heal leader in recent years,
marked the appearance of l.ilier.i'
I,Cniler .1. A. Macdonald ou the platform al the smoking concert held in
l.uhoi hall last evening in connection
with th.* Liberal convention, savs the
V 'Oliver World.
.Mi. MacdonnId's ureal record in the
local house, his personal work in ibe
recenl campaign, und his statesman-
like altitude throughout the sidings
ol the convention have won (or bim
ibe uncompromising and unswerving
devotion of Liberals fflioughout the
province and ihe ovation tendered
linn last night was hut the expression of the fcctltlg of the rank and
lib* of the party toward a leader iu
wliieli il has implicit confidence.
When Mr. Macdonald rose lo speak
he was greeted with handclapplng and
cheers which grew in strength and
fervor until the building shook. Bound
afler louml of cheers went up, then a
delegate started the lirst bars of
•For He's a .lolly flood Fellow,"
an I spontaneously the whole con-
course joined, every man vicing with
bis neighbor in doing honor lo the
"We are not endorsing lhe recent
Oriental riot, but it certainly has
bad the effeel ol bringing home to
the |N*oplc of the British Empire
that we'do not intend standing for
the unrestricted immigration or
Orientals," said Mr. Macdonald, after
having declared himself almost overpowered hv llie splendid reception.
He had not' visited the hall lhat
evening with lhe Intention of shaking, as the evening was solely one of
social enjoyment and the smoker was
organized for the purpose of bringing
the Liberals from all over the province together. The hearty applause
ol the delegates Irom all "over the
province were due to tbe Liberal association for the entertainment und
their reception. When the great contest came, as it is likely to come
within n year, the gathering ol the
Liberals of the province would no
doubt contribute in no small degree.
Inwards Hie entire organization of
th.* Liberal party ami would assist
materially in making the record at
the next 'elections even more glorious
than that of 1004. In the next
general election, in three years from
now, the leader predicted tlie eity
would not repeat tho mistake it had
malic in not electing the Ove splendid
candidates who were defeated at the
last election, but would return them
hy  handsome majorities.
"The conference is being held at a
very opportune time," continued Mr.
Macdonald. "The recent. Oriental
rots have had llu* elloct of. emphaslz-
Ing in Ih? strongest possible manner
the fact that we do not intend standing for the unrestricted immigration
nl Orientals, and while tlie affair Is
d.-cply regretted hy lift per cent of

it has shown llh' people of Eastern
Canada, the Dominion government
and the whole Briiish empire. that
we have gone on record as lK*ini_; fair-

I am glad to see that this convention
also pul Itself ou record in unmistakable terms against the eontinua-
t'on of this state of things." Tbe
applause      that   toll..wed   the  leader's
remarks was thunderous, and Indicated the cut-re approval wilh the

Th.* present convention most unmistakably demonstrates the popularity of lhe provincial leader. His

been Ihe occasion of a rcmatkablo
outburst of spontaneous applause and
lus surest ions have h.-i-n acted upon
with great  unanimity.
The whole of the day was devoted
to Hi* consideration of resolutions
preseliltd on bchall of llie s|n«cial

special session or sessions, re-pass the
Natal Act for the exclusion of undesirable immigrants, unless and until

until the Dominion has passed effective exclusion measures.
That as the opinion of British Columbia gem-rally, is against the immigration of Orientals, and, as the

Quebec Friday afternoon on their return from Paris. They were wel-
comed at the wharf hy a large number or prominent people, including
Premier Oouln, and were presented
with an address by tht- board of
trade iu the evening.
The board of trade, the oldest iu-
s lilu Hon ol its kind in Canada, prt-
seni<-d au address of welcome lo
Welding and Brodeur nn their return, as the address stated "from
their memorable trip abroad, in
| which ihcy contributed to the development of ttie foreign trade and ' .'. *
Ibe country in a step towards complete commercial emancipation." The
.nddress further stated thai, the
negotiation ol the trade treaty might
be considered as a new affirmation of
lentente cordlnle between France and
iKiighnid. The negotiations of tlie
j treaty places the people nf Canada
,more than ever in a position to appreciate tlie extent of the constitu-
nevei eWottal liberties conferred on the
I Dominion by Oreat Britain and tbe
'extraordinary extent and Importance

Vancouver, B. C, Oct. 7.—Abrogation of tbu Anglo-Japanese treaty
property ami remedial legislation for B. C.
against Oriental immigration was
hie demand of the largest attended
meeting ever held by the Anti-Asiatic
l-ague in Labor hall i&ni-shi, addressed hy former Governor Mclnnes, ot
lhe Yukon; City Solicitor Cowan,
and Rev. Dr. Kraser. At the close
the league wired Premier Laurier
that the public meeting unanimously
i ndorsod the resolutions of ibe
Dominion Trades Congress ami the
Provincial Liberal convention regarding the Orientals, aud also protested
against the commission to Japan because of the delay thereby.
A message was also sent Premier
.McBride requesting an immediate session of the legislature to re-enact the
Natal Ael, aud asking if Lieutenant-
(to ver nor Dunsmuir refuses his assent to the present measure, what is
the government's intention'.
Mr. Mclnnes,    In bis address, said:
"There are times iu the history    of

Home, Mr. E. II. Osier. M. P.. Mr.
B. Angus and Hon. L. J. Forget
were re-elected  to the directorate.
In moving lhe adoption of the annual report, the president. Sir Thos.
Shatighnessy, said unless there was
some great setback in the progress o(
the country, which there was no reason to anticipate, the company would
l.e compelled to spend further larce
sutus on expansion which would be
met hy further share issue if necessary, but for immediate requirements
there were sufficient funds on hand.
Speaking of the crop situation, he
said that in Ontario there had been a
satisfactory yield of wheat, but the
season had been an inauspicious one
for other crops. In western Canada
the backward sprtng had resulted in a
shrinVrage of 25 per cent in the wheat
crop, but owing to increase of oats
and other grains and higher prices
the farmers would receive as much for
their produce as last vear. As a result of the late harvest nnly 1,381
car'oads of wheat weie carried during
September to ports nn Lake Superior, against '1,81(8 in September.
100(1, hut in spile of this there was
no diminution in weekly earnings, and
an extraordinary rush of grain tu the
head of tlie lake was anticipated before tbe close of naviuatiirti.
Tbe president estimated that the
company still held 8,000,000 a<r.*s ut
its original agricultural land grant,
which wouhl produce Weber prices
than those heretofore realized, while
from lands in British Columbia, the
main value of which was in timber
ami minerals, a handsome return
uiiiilit be expected. By Uio end of
the season .'flit miles of canals and
ditches wouhl he completed in western irrigation blocks, serving iiu.nun
crcs at a cost    of $6.50 an aire. As
hearty thanks, of the public are due
to these gentlemen lor establishing
by their conduct a fuse for extending
Uie authority of the railway commission over the te'egraph, company. The
case is already strong, but we aro
not without hupeb that they will
make it uverwhelmiiig by some crowu.

In eastern Canada and the Slates
it is considered a conservative estimate that five people read every
paper issued. In Cranbrook, to be
on the safe side, we place lhc number at three, which is absolutely
safe, and that would make 8,854 readers of the Herald each week.
These circulation figures can he
verified at nny time by any advertiser who will take lhc Iroublo to go
over the subscription books or watch
the big press roll out the papers.
This is where the advertiser (.'els a

Did you ever get up in the morning with a tired feeling, disgusted
with yourself, your clothing, and
everything else? Just try wearing STANFIELD'S UNDERWEAR and see if you are not
glad to get up and get dressed,
and you will feci good all day
long, and then you'd never be
mad when your clothes come
back from the [laundry, because
STANFIELD'S never shrink
and, if given a ghost of a chance,
will come out of the wash bright
and soft.   Every garment guaranteed to give entire satisfaction
or we will be glad to hand your money back.

You'll want a pair of boots that
will make your long tramps easy.
We have just what you want,
made by Geo. A. Slater—a 12-
inch top Oil-taived Giant Calf
Blucher Bal. This is as near a
waterproof boot as is made of
leather. They are $7.50 per pair
and are worth every cent of it.
But it won't cost you a cent to
see them and if you buy a pair
and don't get satisfaction they
won't cost you any more than
the price for looking at them.
PAIR A\11 is . ill'All.
Our Tailoring Department was never so complete as now.
If you are going to buy a Suit for Winter you should come

own first-class tailors will do the rest.
Come in and see our stock; then you will go back and
get your friend because you will be tickled. Our prices
