J. H.   KING   WILL   BE
To set right a malicious rumor
to the effect that Dr King will not
be a candidate before the Convention, and would not return for some
time, the Herald would state that
the doctor and his bride left Ottawa
yesterday, and will arrive in Cranbrook Sunday. Furthermore, there
is no other person talked of, suggested, or thought of. as the Liberal
candidate in this district, except Dr
King and he will receive the unanimous non nation.
Kossland, I>cc. 27.—In response to
a rvi|*it.s-t, for an outline of the lines
he would puisne.in conducting his
campaign against tlie McBridc government, Liberal leader J. A. Mac-
dnnahl to-day made the following
"Let me say in a tew words now
what I shall enlarge upon later: The
government's policy is its record.
That record spells high taxes; neglect of roads and trails; a monstrous
school act; neglect to protect our
forests; neglect to compile and furnish information about lands in aid
of settlement; broken promises to
deal with the railway situation after proclaiming necessity for action;
back door methods ot dealing with
public assets; a barefaced attempt on
the premier's part to make better
terms a party issue and election cry
in face of what took place in the
house; subserviency to a railway
corporation evidenced by unsuccessful
attempt to give a million and a half
in cash, and actual grant of 800,000
acres of public lairds, and refusal to
make it pay its taxes. *>
**Our policy is defined by our stand
on .the measures brought before the
house, plus our aims regarding other measures which cannot be introduced by an opposition, but only by
■the government, which are: The
creation of a department of labor
and immigration, subjects too important to he left as at present
without shape or provincial guidance,
to guard us against undesirable immigrants.
"Full inquiry into water records
and irrigation and while protecting
prior rights providing tor a widei
distribution of water available" for
irrigation. An adequate system of
forest protection; surveys of crown
lands available for settlement, and
where practicable, parcelling them
into small holdings as part of immigration policy; repeal of school
act and return io a svstcin of state
education; revision of the terms ot
placer and dredging leases and lessening the danger of inadvertent,
"No alliance with those revolutionists who would destroy our system of government and ,'haul down
our flag, but on ttw contrary cooperation with that great body of
labor which would reform abuses in
a constitutional way."
D. Murphy, a member ol the present city council, stated to the Hefe
old this week that lie hud been ask-
ctl to stand as the candidate for
mayor on the Trades and Lahur
council ticket hut had declined, and
thai ho Would also decline to he a
candidate for alderman on any ticket

and the rest ol the aldermen held a
short coulerence this morning, as
they have been importuned by quite a
number of the people to stand attain,
and decided that so iar as they wen,
concerned it was up 10 the people of
Cranbrook. Thcv hud served a year

The Trades and Labor council held
a meeling Sunday •fternoun to perfect their organisation and decided
to enter the municipal held of politics, and the following candidates
were named: For mayor, DeVere

W. Morton, H. Hickenbothara, T.
(MIL T. Wardman, 0. Johnson and
C. Knocke, Seven were named and

not been advised as to which name

The Herald has no axe to grind
in the municipal contest, except one.
it wants to sec a good, businesslike
administration next year, as it nays
tuxes and wants a fair run (or its
money. It has every respect and
consideration for the ticket named by
the Trades and Labor council, as the
editor has known all of the gentlemen for years and enjoys friendly relations with each of litem. Yet,
the Herald believes that it would be
a mistake to put an entire new
council and mayor in at this time,
as it believes that the best interests
of the city demands men of experience iu municipal work. II the law
this province was like it is in
some other places, where only halt
of the council were elected each year,
then it would he a different proposition, as there would always be experienced men remain. It was lor
this reason that the Herald suggested last week that it would he well
to let the old council and the present
mayor remain another year to carry
on the work that they have inaURuta-
tcd, and ibis suggestion was made
before any other tk'k^ Juid been
named. It is no small allair to
take up the business of a city the
sine of Cranbrook, ami the responsi-
bilify is nol a light one by any
means Hut the Herald believes
that the majority should rule, and
if is up to the people to decide.
Washington, I). C, Dec. 31.-An
appalling    dinstrr   occurred     at    7
'clock last night on the Baltimore
A Ohio railroad at Terra Cottft,
about Three miles from this city, in
which about 35 persons were killed
and over so injured, some of them
so seriously that they will die. The
accident was caused by the collision
of train No. fifi, due here at fi.25
p.m., from Frederick, Md., known as
the Frederick local, with a deadhead
passcngee eifulpmcnt special ot eight
pars.      Over    2P0   passengers    were
hoard flie ill-fated train. The
railway officials late to-night were
unable' lo explain the collision. As
soon as the news of Ihe wreck reached Hie city all ambulances available,
with as many physicians as could be
assembled, were sent to the scene.
Fernle, Dec. 31.—Abraham Joyce,
talc registrar ot the county court
and tax collector here, was brought
back here from Saskatoon by two
provincial policemen on Saturday
morning, charged with an offence relating to misappropriating government funds which came into his
hatnts as tax collector. It is said
that tlie ex-ofllcial procured facsimiles ol official tax receipts near
the end of the year, and applying to
certain companies to pay up appar-
ini arrears in the payment ol taxes
collected from their employees. These
■ompanics produced what are claimed to be iKigus receipts signed by
loyce and which have led to his arrest.
The downfall ot Mr Joyce Is by
many attributed to the mania tor
gamming' to which he is said to be
addicted. His standing in the community was high, nnd fills most unfortunate occurrence has created a
deal ol surprise and regret among
his numerous friends.
The feeling is that places where
gambling' is carried on, whether in
public or in private, should
be sternly dealt with, and
public sentiment will demand the
impartial prosecution of all keepers
ol such places until the nuisance has
been abated.
Lisbon, Dec. 26.—A Christmas lottery prize of »20fl,000 was won by
the inmates ol the workhouse ah
Evera. All the paupers, numbering
1,000, subscribed a lew coppers each
to buy the ticket. They held a
great farewell banquet at which all
drank champagne.

Dear Sir,—In response to your request lor a report of the Labor convention, held in the Patmore ball,

Murysville, being appointed to act,
and reported that there were 24
delegates present, representing the
different districts in the Cranbrook
riding. The convention was very
noticeable for the enthusiasm displayed by the different delegates. A
lengthy discussion now took place
as to the advisability of placing a
straight labor candidate in the
Oeld, and the concensus of opinion
was: that tlie time was opportune
and praetthle. Tills matter being |
sat islhctorily disposed ot, the'
chairman called (or nominations o( a

The mills ol the Porto Rico Lumber company at Nelson, Ymir, Moyie
and Moose Jaw were this week ali-
sorbed by the Beaver Lumber company of Winnipeg. The amount of
money involved in the deal is said
to be in the ueujehborhood of a
quarter of a million dollars. The
purchasing company has been absorbing several mill properties lately in Alberta and Manitoba. The
sluiTchoideis of the local concern
who sold out are J. B. McArtliur,
of Winnipeg, O, J. Handle)' and W.
Oi Hayward, ui Ymir, J. A. Dewar,
of Nelson, jji'i Ueorgc W. Orchard,
of Moyie.
J. A. lH-war has been retained \ as
general manager, and the business of
the new concern iu this section will
still life run under the. uaaue ol the
I'oitu Rico Lumber company.
Ovorge W. Orchard, manager ol the
Moyie branch ol the business, informs the Leader that there will he
lew if any changes iu the plans for
the Moyie plant. It will be run
next season as was already planned.
As lor himself he does not know
whether he will be with the new
concern or not. This will be settled
alter the stocktakers, who will soon

feet ot blue clay .and live feet ol

over this piece ol good luck.

The Ming of the meeting being
that the granting of such a franchise
was detrimental to the best interests of the people, there being no
provision made for concessions to

The government will eclipse the
promises they made in Uie district
last time. The great Prom is er is
the harness.
The malicious report emanating
irora the Conservatives that Dr. King
Aould not, be a candidate and would
not return in time (or the election,
is about as dirty a piece of work as
has come up so far, but it won't be
a marker to others that will follow
from the same source. The Herald
saM some time ago that under cer-
in in circumstances the coming earn
paign was bound to be a dirty one,
and now it is becoming evident. Already there have been several stories
circulated for the purpose of injuring the Liberals in this district, for
which there is no foundation whatever. The Conservatives should
exercise better judgment. There is
the old story about stones and class

thai kind of a man.
The Labor convention places Thos.
E   Kelly, of Movie, in nomination as
• is candidate. Mr. Kellv is a man
who is well liked by those who know
him, and his nomination was a derived compliment.
In the heat of the provincial campaign don't forget that there is to
be a municipal election on the 17th of
this month.
All sports are being postponed this
mown on account of politics.
■I. A. Harvey will he the worst defeated man in the province.
Boost Cranbrook just the same as
you would your candidate.
Keep good natured through it all.
It don't pay to quarrel about poli-
t lea.
Belting Is not an argument.
Mr. J. A. Harvey, ns the candidate selected by the Conservative party to represent this riding
in the next legislative assembly,
is a man that every Conservative
and independent    v.iter can    support without evasion or apology-
lie is the strongest and best man
ever named by a party in this tlis-
tiivt.       Mr. Harvey is too    well
known in every corner of this riding to    need any   newspaper or
other introduction   of commendation, and the     vote of confidence
given    by    the     convention that
selected him    will be ratified   by
the electors on election day.
Tlie above from  Mr.  Harvey's personal orgun, has created considerable
comment in town and over the   district.     When Mr.    Harvey's personal
organ       says:       "HE     IS     THE
IN THIS    DISTRICT," it is laying
it on pretty strong.       In fact,    the
people of this district    have    their
own   opinion of this matter.     They,
think   that Dr.   King    is u     pretty
strong   man     and     a guod citizen.
They   think   that Tom Caven is    a
pretty strong man and has been    a
parly worker.     They  Uiiuk that E.
C. Smith,   who    was elected * as    a
member, is a strong man and    well
liked by  the    people.     They    think
thai   William Feruie is ami was    a
good citi/en.     They think that    the
late John CoBtigan was an able man
and   a     good citizen.      They think
that the lulu  Colonel  Baker was an
able man, a good man and a strong
friend of    the district.     it illy becomes Mr.     Harvey's personal organ
lo   make such a comparison between
Air.  Harvey  and  other  men iu    this
district   who     have  been candidates
before him.        That kind of fulsome
praise of    Mr.  Harvey by Mr. Harvey's personal organ does not meet
with the approval of the masses    of
the people.
Dr. King's hundred of friends are
rallying iu the front, and the battle
cry ol "King and Victory" is beard
on every side.
W. It. Boss introduced the subject
ui politics at tne big Salvation Army
meeting held in Feruie a siiort tiuie
ago, wnere he had been extended uie
cuurlesy of acting as chairman. Air,
itoss was so indiscreet as to announce that he might be the Conservative candidate at the lorlhcoii.-
ing election. That was bad business
auu poor taste, and has brougnu
forth much unfavorable comment
Hum peuple of all parties.
Governor Mclunes will prove a
lower of strength iu the coming
campnlgu, but the Conservative
press continue their misrepresentation and falsifying by repealing Urn
statement created by themselves that
he is returning to take the leadership. They know as well as the
erulij liiat J. A. MacUona.d -is
thu choice of the party as u^ier,
that there has bjceu uo dissension,
and that Mr. Melnnes is coming back
ill the Invitation of Mr. Maeuouald,
But even a casual reading of the Conservative press at this time shows
that the leaders of that party are
badly worried over the situation.
Lawyer Thompson, manager of the
Harvey campaign, is already on the
slump, in the interest of bin candidate.
The Cranbrook district wants better terms. The people have been
paying between tluO.UOO and $200,-
liUU a year iu taxes in various forms
and received little by comparison,
When a Liberal government is elected then the Cranbrook district will
come into her own.
It was stated by a Conservative
minister in this district that the
present government could not well
do much for this district for fear
that Dr. King, the member, might
get the credit for it. And in this
way, out of political spite, the tax
payers c4 this district were forced
to submit to Increased taxes ami
get nothing in return. That is
what they have to thank the foc-
Bridc government for the past three
years, and yet they are asked to
support the McBride candidate, Mr.
Harvey. There should have been
thousands of dollars of work done in
this district the past three years
work that was absolutely necessary
fur the progress of the district, hut
It was not done, simply because the
people exercised their right In voting
at the last election. As a consequence, the merchant, the clerk
the laborer, the prospector, the mine
owner, the lumberman, everyone had
to suffer. The people of this district fully appreciate the fact and
will express their opinion in a most
emphatic manner at the polls on the

The minutes of the conference of
the provincial premiers has appeared
In The World. The document contains
nothing new—nothing that had not
been previously made known through
lhe press; but it is useful as confirming and accentuating in a remarkable degree the extraordinary antics
of British Columbia's premier . before the conference. It Is useful, as
well, hi showing that the case presented by Mr. McBride is almost
identical with that presented by Mr.
Dunsmulr in B*02. The same arguments appear in both documents, and
although the figures vary slightly,
the general tenor and'scope of the
complaint and the language are ?he
same. More regretful and unhappy
results never flowed from any diplomatic gathering than have resulted
In British Columbia from the Ottawa
conference.    Before the premier left

Vancouver he was urged to invite the
leader of the ouppaoHon or Mr.
George Cowan . to accompany him.
It was fell and said that in the
premier's hands there would be failure. No one predicted the shape1 or
form that failure would assume; but
every one—even his own political
friends—declared that better terms
was too,big a thing for the premier
to handle. He would listen lo no
advice, accept no counsel. He de-
Icrmlned that all the glory ol a
successful. issue of the negotiations
should rest wilh him. As there was
no glory—only a dense, dismal fizzle-
it is meet that the disastrous consequences should rest upon the premier for going unprepared with data
(as Mr. Whitney remarked) to support his case. In Insist rig that the
grlovanco of British Columbia should
be submitted to arbitration, when,
as Mr. Whitney further remarked,
arbitration was not admissible or
possible, he barred himself from, the
conference. It has been said and believed by many thai Mr. McBride
acted with haste and, precipitation
111 deserting the conference at a critical moment. But there may have
been a method in his course. He
may have seen that the difficulties
with which he surrounded himself
(insurmountable, anil when the vote
was taken land he saw that lie stood
alone in support of his resolution,
he must have realized that the time
for disappearing had arrived and that
he must seize another occasion tor
bobbing up serenely" ami explaining his position to the people of his
province. It was a discredit aide
act to drag.the best interests of the
province in the dust—to refuse to
listen h> the wise counsel id Mr.
Whitney and Mr. Robltn and fling
h rhsclf Jrom the conference hall Into
the public square, banging tho dour
as he went to emphasize his indignation at the refusal of the members
to entertain his proposition. As Mr.
Macdonald has remarked, Mr. McBride has degraded into a political
cry a great question that should
have been kept out of the mire of
political contention, and been considered and disposed of on the highest plane of political morality and
decency. That the province has an
excellent ease is not denied. The
country is unanimous in demanding
better terms. There has never been
a moment since the session of 1!I05,
when the leader of the opposition
moved,his better terms resolution,
thai all patriotic hearts In the prov
ince have not beaten in harmony
with the wording of that resolution.
There has never1 been a time when
provincial sentiment was as pronounced in favor of emphasizing the
demand with energetic and forcible
action; and there has never been an
occasion In the history of the province when a vital question was intrusted to such weak and incapable
hands as those In which the better
terms matter rests. The province
has Indeed a strong case, It has
been marred, not lost, in handling.
That it was not destroyed Is not
the fault of the premier. He did his
hesb—not intentionally, but Ighor-
antly—to defeat ourvclaim upon the
Dominion for more generous treats
merit. That our ease was not lost
is due to the magnanimity ot sir
Wilfrid Laurier ami the Liberal delegates In tho conference. They saw
that the case of the province was in
weak hands, and they did not propose to make British Columbia suffer for the indiscretion of her premier. It l is useless to rely unv
longer upon Mr. McBride and his
ministry. They have shown their
Incompetence, They have tried their
hands and failed. The door lot the
conference was closed against them
with a bang when Air. McBride fled
from the hall and Into parliament
square in time to catch the afternoon train for New York, and in
ihiii modern Babylon,'forget, in the
hetter times he had there, all about
the hetter terms he went to Ottawa
to secure.
William HIgglus, who was brought
to tho St. Eugene hospital last week
a very sick man .died Inst Sunday
and was hurled this afternoon Irom
Bcatty's undertaking parlors. The
Eagle lodge had charge of the services and Rev. West man read a chapter from the Bible. The funeral pro-
ccssion was one ot the largest ever
seen iu Cranbrook and was made up
of the members ol the Eagle lodge, a
number ot the leading lumbermen of
the town and old friends and comrades of the deceased.
William Hlggins was about fifty
years of agv and came from the lumber district near Ottawa. Most of
the time since he has lived In this
district he had been employed by A.
Lciteh, manager of the East Kootc-
nay Lumber . company, in the capacity of timber cruiser, and was coo-
ceded to   be om of the best in   the
country.. Thousands upon thousands of dollars have been invested
in timber limits on the judgment of
the deceased. The deceased did not
have an enemy, as he seemed to
possess the faculty of making (mends
of all whom he met, and his death
will carry sorrow to the hearts of
many men in the lumber camps of
the Kootenays.

A merry crowd of Cranbrook
people spent Christmas day at
Perry Creek. To say the least they
surely had a pleasant day. Dinner
was served when they arrived and
all did justice to tho good things
prepared, consisting of roast goose,
chicken,' venison and all that go with
it to make it good. After dinner
the spacious dining room was cleared and dancing and cards and other
amusements was indulged in till tea
time, when all repaired to the dining room and were again refreshed,
after which Mr. John McDonald rendered a Scotch reading, which was
enjoyed by all. Uy this time the
drivers were heard to yell, "all
aboard," and the merry jingling of a
four horse sleigh was driven up.
The party singing, made their way
home in the moonlight, wishing the
host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Bulge, a merry Christmas and
happy New Year.
