Mr. ihos. oavou, iiiu Conservative
candidate, was t-nu first Bpcattur caii-
l*ii upon D) uiu chairman. Tom
■..aien waa received witb musical
.honors ami u nearly outuuist ot applause,      ilu   expressed nis pleasure
ul  seeing so  large au aimiimc  gftbu-
cieu io near the premier outline ins
iuuway pulley, Uu also expressed
ins giauucauuu ut Hie uoutidcuce
placed iu liim uy his fellow Conservatives iu tendering him ilie nomina-
rion ami lie bopeu lo reciprocate uy
introducing good legislation when lie
went down to Victoria. lie expressed Hie opiniou that lhe MeBride
government had dealt fairly witb
l laubrooK constituency iu thu past,
despite Uiu fact that it had returned
un uppositiou member, and hu instanced as examples ol lhu government's fairness thu construction oE
undges al Kort Steele and Wardner.
Mr, Caven went on lo say that tlie
policy Mr. MeBride would outline lo
Uiem had lus hearty support. There
was urgent need ol increased transportation Eauilitius and he felt sure
that no one present, after hearing ih.
premier, would vote oilier than for
ihe government candidate. Me ask-
ed Uial they all poll their voles foi
him on lhe 25th and if hu were
elected he would do Ids best in the
way ol legislation. His opponent,
Mr. Maedouald, was a very line man,
u gentleman in every respect, hut hu
wus afraid thai Mac. wus up against
a hard proposition and would only
he elected to remain at home.
Premier MeBride spoke next. In
his opening icmacks, thu premier
suid tie was glad to be present ou
this occasion lo say a good word
ior his old friend, Tom Caven. "We
have many lawyers at Victoria," he
suid, "bin not n single railway nan
and Caven's advice would bu of
great use to the government in formulating their railway policy." Mr.
Caven held the confidence of liis employers and of his fellow employes
ami it was only fitting tliat he should
pay his tribute to so popular aud
worthy a man. The premier then
took up the discussion of his railwaj
policy, declaring at the outset that
il would bo put inlo effect "without
the surrender of a single acre of
public land and without the expenditure of a single dollar ol the
people's money." Ho then Indulged
lor some few minutes in a warm
eiiloi'v ol Messrs. McKett/ie and Mann
and entered a plea tor tbe sympathy
of ids audience because uf the attacks    by Liberals upon his railway
"Now," continued tho premlor, in
uppui ouching tbe railway sit nation,
the liist question yuu will tisk is,
who are tlie people with whom the
province of British Columbia deals!
My answer is, the Canadian Northern
Hallway company, which loduy is
operating thousands ul miles of line
in Canada under tlio direction of William Mackenzie and l>. D, Mann. 1
can recall my sell seven or elgh
years ago when some ol the ottioi
railway men in Canada luuked upon
Hie Canadian Northern ns a kind ol
juke, and we ean all recall tlie tre-
tm uduiir condemnation which was
bulled at Mi. Koblin in UUU wlieu he
proposed un behalf uf tbe people of
Manitoba to assist Mackenzie &
.Maun in Ihe exploitation of tbe Canadian Northern sysiem in tbat province. What was a joke, according to
lite words ol suine in 1001, has today
assumed the proportions ot a great
uud wealthy railway corporation,
with .splendid arterial and branch
lines, doing a tremendous service for
millions ut Canadians and giving the
promise ol doing a still mure magnificent service Ior those people as soon
as thev may be able lu reach tho
IVilic ooaat und the Atlautie sea
board. I remember seven years ago
in lbe legislature ut llritish Columbia when I led the uppusitiun party
in the bouse, approaches were made
hy lbe Canadian Northern Ior subventions In,order to extend their
line to our coast. The longest session ol parliament known in the history of the province was then held
wlwn M of my colleagues and myself, Ior tour months, withstood the
efforts ol tbe government to pass a
bill in aid of the Canadian Northern. The fight was bitter; Mr.
Mann knew as well as did his colleagues how great was the effort of
the opposition party to stay the
hand ol the government in their e!-
lort and endeavor to give Ids corporation a large subvention.
Fancy what was proposed seven
years ago to Ire given in aid ot Mackenzie & Mann to induce them to
bring tlic Canadian Northern to the
Pacific coast: A subsidy of 2(1,0(10
acres ol land per mile and a cash
bonus ol $5000 per mile together
most an empire in extent was then
most an empire in extent was it ben
proposed to he bargained away hy
the parliament ot British Columbia
to bring the Canadian Northern railway to this province. I remember
saving In the house that if the Canadian Northern railwav secured
subvention in land ot that size and
extent tho next thing we rhall see in
mc hinterland in tbu inter ior of
British luluniiiiu would lie lOUCW on
each .side ol u tioiuuiulous territory

"i huve answered the lirst question

altogether from the heroic part that
nas neon played by tho people of
.u an Holm iu the extension of the Canadian Northern system miner thc
leadership of Mr, Koblin. Now, the
ail way company with all their niile-
age und lhe reputation they enjoy
und stamped and hacked by tbe leading puhlie men of Canada should certainly have some consideration in the
councils of the local government of
ibis province when it is seeking to
_ rovide moro -railway transportation

make for the extension of the sys-
this country a proposal that will
maKu for the extou(ion ol tlie system iu \ ancouver and Victoria and
Barclay Sound within four years and
that will make iu thc same period
lur thc development of a tremendous
stent of territory contiguous to the
ine as well as tremendous develop-
iieut iu pails of British Columbia
now served hy tbe C.P.R.
Perhaps the next consideration we
.should turn to now is wherein lies
the benefit to the people of this
countrv ot a competitive line ot road.
I'eiluips tlic best authority 1 can give
you on this point is Lord Strathcona
Himself, who on his visit to Port
Arthur a lew weeks ago spoke to the
people of ihat town on the advantages resulting to tbem from the entry of another line of road. He said
(here was a tremendous virtue in
railway competition, and mark you,
tiiis statement came from a man
rt-ho himsell is a heavy shareholder in
the C.P.R, Speaking at Fort William he said: 'It is impossible now i,
recognlatc what 1 saw of Fort William and Port Arthur in former
days, hut when you look nt tlte advancement and development of the
rerj low years—ot these 10 or 15
w.us, in a groat measure—what is
thc pturm.se ol the future? With all
you have hero, with those ships going
to every port, not only in the British
empire, but also to foreign countries
Hum your own homo ports here,

lilies what they are today, in rivalry, tu everything tor lhe good of

lhe continuance ol such exertions and
ncrgy and rosolutloh, what may wc
li'uk forward to in a very few years
'Vou ate glad not only to have at

to you! advantage to have the two
other railroads as well. 1 am on-

llet, because 1 toll Mint it wa? 'a
Hiosl excellent thing that there

work and Iratlic and profit as well

will nil du their utmost in the com-
■tiu'i guud.'
"The proposal of the Canadian
Northern railway, to which we have
agreed provides for the extension ol
that line from the Yellowhead Pass
down the North Thompson river to
Kamloops, and (rom Kamloops
through the Frascr and Thompson
canyons, and along the south bank of
tlii- Fraser to Vancouver; also it will
provide for an extension from Westminster lo English Bluff, Point
Roberts, n terry system to Victoria,
and the extension ot thc rood from
Victoria to Barclay Round on the
west coast ol Vancouver Island. This
will be in all a mileage of about 600
milt's, nnd will serve todevelop that
wonderful country tributary to the
North Thompson river, ami will at
tlie same time give new lite and
splendid impetus to tbat section ot
tlie country which is now peopled
and which lies south ot the Canadian
Pacific line. As you travel through

to the satisfaction of all present.
The meeting was opened by Mr. K.
J. Clayton, a resilient of Marysville,
.ell known and highly esteemed by
every other resident ot that promising burg, Mr. Clayton warmly endorsed tbe candidature ot Mr. Macdonald and in a few pithy, pointed
remarks gave abundant reasons why
the electors of Marysville should rally strongly to tho support of the
Liberal nominee on the 25th.
Dr. King, tho popular ex-M.P.P.
for Cranbrook tiding, was the next
speaker, and was accorded a splendid
reception. The doctor opened bis
remarks witb a brief reference to
local conditions and referred to the
efforts put forward by the Liberal
members iu tho late legislature to
secure a satisfactory lien law tor
miners working on prospects. He
went on to ileal w Ith the government's proposed railway policy,
which he claimed would impose a
verv heavy burden on all tho people
without corresponding benefits to thc
The doctor then made a comparison
between the railway policy offered by
the MeBride government and that pul
forward by "Honest John" Oliver,
on behalf <if tin* Liberal parly. He
showed how olivet's policy meant the
o|H*ning up and development of far
larger areas ol the province, now
hadlv in need ot transportation
facilities, than did the MeBride
policy, and that the Oliver policy was
well within the financial ability ot
the province to carry into efiect
without undulv burdenine the taxpayer.
Concluding his remkrks, the doctor
nude reference to his retirement from
the political field. He was retiring
simply because of professional reasons." He had devoted several years
to public work and be had felt that
the time had come when, in fairness
to himself, be should devote his time
exclusively to the practice of his
profession. His retirement was no
sudden affair. He had intimated to
his friends, lung ago, that he would
not again be a candidate tor the legislature and with so strong a man in
the Held to take his place he had no
fear oj the result. Mr. M. A. Macdonald was a man who rightly held
the respect ot every resident in Cranbrook riding. He was a man of affairs, an excellent public speaker and
a student of legislation. In voting
for Mr. Macdonald the electors of
Marysville, in particular, would make
no "mistake. Tbey would have in
him an able advocate, a man in whom
i they   could   place the     most implicit

i Mr. M. A. Macdonald was thvu
I called upon, ami waa giu-n a grand
[reception. He dealt with the issues
[of the campaign, fairly aud exhaustively, creating a line opinion ot his
I abilities to adequately represent tho
Cranbrook riding at Victoria. Mr.
Maedouald reviewed at some length
the Liberal party's record ou labor
questions as evidenced by their
[votes in the legislature and went on
to point out tbe urgent need of
amendments to the Hen act so as to
enable miners to have a lirsl charge
on tH'iided and mortgaged properties
iui wages. He proceeded to deal
with the question ot oaiusau activity on the pari ot government officials who were paid by the whole
people, and strongly urged thai government ollkials should refrain from
auy participation in election campaigns. Mr. Macdonald then made
an eloquent appeal tor a fair and
honest consideration of the issues
now before the electorate. Hu
pointed out the urgent necessity of
sinking party diOerences at this juncture and of ever) elector easting bis
vote according to his honest conviction, not because of party alliliu-
lions. The country was confronted
wilh a very serious problem, that of
railway construction, ami it was Imperative that electon should vote tor
llie policy tluy honestly believed
would best inure to tbe advantage of
the province, rather than for a party
candidate, simply because he was
their party candidate. A long, carefully reasoned, review of the govern-
ernmeni's policy followed, in which
it was abundantly evident, Mr. Macdonald carried with bun tlie sympathy of tlie great bulk of the large
audience. He demonstrated conclusively that despite the claims ot
the MeBride apologists, the government scheme was not in accord with
the policies adopted in the provinces
of Saskatchewan and Alberta and
would impost* a burden ou the province that would indefinitely retard
tbe undertaking uf additional railway
projects urgently required in other
portions of the province. In his concluding remarks, Mr. Macdonald
commented upon the resignations of
Finance Minister Tatlow and Chief
Commissioner ot Lands Fulton, X-o
ol thv strongest members of Premier
McBride's cabinet, as a protest
against tbe eitravagant policy put
forward by the premier. He also
drew attention to the defection of
Sir Chas. Hibbert Tupper, as further
proof of the utterly unsatisfactory
character ot McBride's railway
After Mr. Macdonald had resumed
bis seat, the large meeting, practically as one man, rose to assure him
,f their hearty support and as the
lectors poured out of the building
expressions of confident* in their candidate and of assurance of victory on
lbe 2rith were beard on every hand.
Mr. Macdonald made a hit at
Marysville, which will be given the
right kind of effect to on November
25th. when ihe electors at that
Tolling division mark their ballots.

Frank Aiken, a reliable mining man
of the Bayonne camp, is authority for
the statement that Tom Randall,
foreman ot the Nugget mill on
Sheep Creek, and Alex. Stewart, a
miner, informed him about ten days
ago, that tbey actually saw a wild
or cra/.y man near the mouth ot
Summit Creek. The demented man
was bareheaded when seen by these
two men and was creeping on all
fours toward the camp. When he
saw that he was discovered by
Messrs. Randall and Stewart he
crouched down in thc rushes and ran
on his hands and knees into Summit
Creek   and    swam     the creek, then
"mt'-d up aud tell down; then picked
himself up and ran into the Umber
in   n   stooping     position.     Messrs.
Randall and Stewart tried to get   a
saddle horse to follow tne demented
man, hul in the meantime tbe horses
had got frightened ot the strange
visitor and bad stampeded, and tbey
were thus prevented from following
Tbe truth of this story is vouched
tor, and it is the general belief that
a demented foreigner, possibly ft
Hindoo, is subsisting in the timber
at the mouth of Summit Creek, and
thai he will undoubtedly perish this
winter, unless lie has been rounded
up and captured, is a foregone conclusion.

Into bed.
"It'll u conspiracy to starve me," she laughed.
She stuck the pillows behind her, pulled an extra

At the third oue she paused, leaned back uud burst
Into girlish laughter,
"I don't want to play in your yard," she Bang.
"That makes three -,f them."
She picked up another letter, one she had laid aside

"I wouldn't go late that plaee again tf 1 never bad

glared at tbe coffee machine.
She munched ber dry roll, and with a wry face
u.pped the strong black stuff tbat had tasted so good
the ulght before.
Suddenly ber eyes filled with tears, whale her lips
curved into au attempt at n smile.
"Funny to be like this, isn't lt?" she obo-ked. Nice

•*Oh. I know; it wasn't thut he was tired out st rehearsal.    He didn't waul to."
The tears had their way; the distorted little smile
disappeared. The cup aud plate were pushed aside
und u forlorn yellow head lay ou two outstretched pink
siiu arms.
"1 wanted Alee to come. 1 did, I did. And I don't
see why be couldn't have."
The slim shoulders heaved nnd the white hands
clenched. Then she sat upright with a suddenness that
brought the yellow hair unbecomingly over ber eyes.
She pushed her hair to the top of ber head, skewered It with a couple of plus, slipped Into a warm
dressing gown, and again opened the door of the
kitchenette. She picked up the empty ten kettle gingerly and filled it rti the tap. She lighted the gas and
set the kettle on.    Then she looked about her.
"I certainly am not much »-r a housekeeper," she remarked.
She shrugged her shoulders daintily.
"I'll dress and gel out of It—some where," she decided.
The dumbwaiter's vociferous offer at that moment
of rolls and cream tool; her attention. A hoarse voice
culled up that its owner was about io deliver tbe materials for ilu- dii r ordered by Miss Say re's maid.
"Keep them," called back Arllue, but the dumbwaiter drowned her words In Its mad race to (he bottom. She had Just lime to snatch the cream and rolls
from its shelf.
A couple of water bugs careened over the kitchen
table.   Arllue looked hastily about.
"What does she do to them?" she walled. "There's
something in a bottle."
She hunted about, climbed on a chair, and from a
top shelf seized a bottle labelled poison. A dash of
Its contents and the intruders had ceased even to
"Works wonders," Arllne rend, speculatively, "And
this Is where my morning meal Is prepared!"
There wus a hissing noise on ibe small gas range.
It seemed to come from tbe blue leu kettle,
"It enn't leak," said Arllne. "I brought It home
myself the time they burned up the other, and that
wns only a few weeks ago."
But lt did leak. It spilled n long Btrouk of water
down the front of the silk wrapper, and It acted just
like an Irritating rusted lea kettle, which It was.
Arilne's mouth lightened. She pul lhe offending
utensil Iu the sink, peered into several saucepans and
piled them ou top of the kettle.
The dumbwaiter rattled Its wny up and its whistle
sounded shrill aud Imperative.
A Thanksgiving dinner, or the materials for one,
has very little fascination for a break fasti ess person
who yearns simply for coffee and rolls.
Arllne lifted the heavy basket to tbe table and
turned with a pained look at the dishes In tlie sink.
"I enn't wash them before 1 have my coffee; I simply can't."
She looked, down nt the streak ou her wrapper and,
slumming the door to the dumbwaiter, fled to her own
room. She flung the damp garment at tbe back of n
chnlr, pulled another from her wardrobe and stuck
an extra pin viciously into the high piled hair.
"Thla Is a Jolly old Thanksgiving!" she announced.
There was coffoe In the French mncblne on her sit-
ttutr room tnWe      Arllne sniffed ai it.     Then <-'"-
"Idiot 1" she muttered. "Why not join the matinee
Idol class and be done with It? Alec! Why, you've
never called him Alec in your life. And what's more,
you never will. Now, drink tbe rest of that beastly
coffee and mop your foolish face."
She did hn she bade herself, drank the coffee, choked
down the remainder of a roll; then she pushed ber
chair buck.
"Now." she said, "for pity's sake, Arllne, think of
something ulee to do. Get out of tbls desperate looking place or you'll hnve the blues, and there's no need
of It."
"t'-'ggy is my last resort," sbe announced, after a
few moments' silence. "She's sure to have no plans,
She's nn nwfti! bore—poor little Peg—but she likes to

too, she'd enjoy. I thought 1 was rid of shop for one

She took up her telephone book nnd searched for tbe
uninteresting Peggy's number.
As she snt at her desk there was n whir of the bell at
her elbow.   She unhooked the receiver,
"Yes. Miss Sayre."
"Mr. Trevor!"
"Why, yes, I did get your letter, Just now, tbls morning."

"No. I haven't asked any one In your plaee, hut"	
"Indeed, yes, I'll he delighted. I was going to say,
"No, no; don't call It off.   |>n come,   Do come!"
The color surged up Into Arllne's face, She hit the
desk with a silent little list. She hadn't meant to say
It in just that tone.
"Not in the least. I ean arrange perfectly. The
party has changed a little, hut there's plenty of room."
"Atl right, I'll expect you."
"Ob. rather early. .Nothing formal, you know.
We'll ent when we're hungry."
Sbe laughed at his response.
"There won't he much to drink If we are dry,
only common claret.   I'm a poor provider that way."
A smile stole about tier lips as she listened; a tender,
unconscious curve thai made her mouth beautiful.
"Thonk you; yes, I know.  I think It's better, too."
"Well, you'll eome?"

She bung the receiver up. pressed her hands to
her cheeks and looked straight ahead of her with
shining eyes,
"He Is coming!   He Is coming!"
She ran to the mirror.
"You little Idiot!" she cried. "He doesn't want to
see you any more than lie did when he said he
couldn't come. II Isn't yon. It's only because he's
rested aud he feels better and wants some Thanksgiving dinner with friends. Don't deceive yourself.
But maybe, maybe If you're nice and natural aud
don't laugh too loud, or drink much claret, or say
silly, itlppMiit things, maybe he'll look at you as If he
couldn't help liking yon a little, and perhaps you'll

Tears struggled through the smite and dewed the
shining eyes.
"You really are tired of the stage, little Arllne.
You wish you had a real housekeeping place, with
stny-thore-nll-tho-tlnie maids, aud dinners to order and

any more, nor have yuur picture on the billboards.

suspect lie had something to do wilh It. Aud he

She broke off. struck nt tbe tears thnt had begun
to fall, aud pursed her mouth Into a prim tine.
"Ninny! Foolish! Hed Nose! You'll look pretty
for your dinner party."
She laughed a quavering little laugh nnd ran Into
her bedroom.
"Bach room looks worse thnn the last. I'll eall

Oh. dear! Thnt horrid hoy said she's gone to her

Tilly, the laundress, whom an obliging druggist
occasionally summoned to the booth In his store, was
not at home, Nt-lther was Peggy, the fearsome bore

She stopped short iu the midst of n futile dash at the
overworked telephone.
Suppose she!
Well, why not? She hadn't done much of It, It Is
true, but she had seen others ,Io It.
Here a few moments ago she had been 1 iitglng for
domesticity-fairly weeping for It—ami now ii was
banded out to her. in tin unpleasantly large ilo«e. to insure, but she would not flinch. She would clear up:
sbe would cook: she would dine with him alone—just
they two, Surely she would earn it if she could prove
herself n good little housewife—nn, not housewife.
You couldn't lie that till you were married!
She dropped off the loose gown she wore nml (lived
Info her bathroom. There Issued forth sounds of
splashing and n murmured conversation a solitaire.
Sbe came forth radiant, pink cheeked. At her
dressing table sbe colled the yellow hair in neat braids
about ber head. Then n hasty but careful toilet and
Miss Arllue Sayre stood alert and smiling In a short
dark red skirt, a eollarless plain white blouse, trimly
belted. A little search evoked a big apron, purchased for tbe erring Katie or one of her predecessors.
"The sitting room first," cried the new housekeeper,
nnd she started boldly In.

It was half-past four when the hall bell rang.
"The dowers!" cried the tired youni- ■   "tan who

walked shakily to the door. "My, but tbls Is hard

She pulled (he door open toward ber In tbe narrow
hall and ran back Into the kitchenette.
"Take them Into the sitting room," she called, "and
send up some more ice wheii you go down."
Her eyes were fixed with tragic iutentness or the
huge bird lu tbe gns oven.
"Haste him," she was muttering to herself. "I've
fairly sewrd him. He just eats up tbe gravy. I wonder If I dare put more water In the pan. lt might
mnke It too weak.   Well?"
She turned sharply as tbe kitchenette door r.-r-uaf is

bead covered with brown hair that grew In boyish
wavy fashion about a broad white brow. Trevor**
earnest inquiring ayes looked Into hers.
"Oh," said Arllue softly. "Oh." And sbe sat quietly down on the floor und covered ber faee with her
"Can't I help?   Are you alt alone?"
Tbe nn turn I sympathetic tone brought Arllne's face
to light again.
"Oh," she cried, "everybody deserted me; everybody
except you, nnd 1 couldn't bear to have you go too.
Isn't It ridiculous? I've cleaned the house and I've
cleaned this place, too. It was Just awful. And now
I'm cooking the turkey!"
Trevor enme into lhe little room. He put out both
hands mid lifted Arllne to her feel,
"Shut tbe oven dour," lie said, "My mother used to
say keep the oven door shut."
"That's for eenke," stuttered Arllne. And then they
both laughed.
This was a new Alec Trevor. Tall, slim, with clean-
cut features, usually unsmiling, he wns likely te
be coldly aloof, but now, us he stooped nnd closed the
door of the little gus oven there was a delightful
homeliness aboul him.
"It wits good of you to come." Arllue sat on I
wooilen chair, her arms drooping wearily.
"It was good of you to let mo. tf I'd known—why
didn't you tell me tbat you'd have to do all this"	
"Oh. don't say you wouldn't have enme. It's been
nice to do. I've been glad. I've seen mother and
Dora—It's only that 1 was brought up different They
made tue he an actress. I didn't like It at first, truly;
but then It got to be easy and, oh, I could learn tbli
so quickly If 1 bad a ebniice!"
Sbe stopped and Hushed violently.
"Why should you Irani? Why shouldn't there bi
some one to do it for you?"
"Mother ami Dora did tt." she mild, simply, "till a
few years ago. Then I earned more money and wa
got some one to do ;t for us. Then mamma married,
ami Dora too. 1 was glad; but I'd always earned
money for them both ever since 1 was n child—they
didn't know how, you see—and then 1 had to go oa
earning it for myself. I didn't mind, but I've always
wished I could tell you why I keep on when I kuow
I'm such a bad actress. Truly. I know It. But It's
my looks, you know." She said It bravely. "I enu get
purls on account of my hair and my face and my—the
way I look."
"Don't!" erted Trevor. He caught her hand quickly.
"Don't torture yourself like this. Why should you
explain to me?"
"I don't know," snld Arllne, slowly.
Thc color died out of her face, leaving It white
and wan. "I shouldn't have, should I? Only, somehow, I wauted you to know."
"Who am I to know? I don't deserve to have you
tell me. I ought to have takeu you ou trust, and I
didn't.   I'm sorry; so sorry."
He held her hand tight in Ids, and she looked up
nt him like n child.
"Do you  know." she said,  gently.  "I   thought lt •
would be nice for us to have a little dinner here hy
ourselves*, though I did try, truly I did. to gel some
one else?   But everybody backed out and there was
the turkey—and there were yon"	
she laughed and he echoed her laughter. Hut It
was a tender sound like a caress that came from Alee
Trevor's lips.
"Will you believe." he asked, "that t was dying,
Jest dying, to have my Thanksgiving dinner with you
nlone? I hadn't the nerve to ask yon—yes—frankly,
I could hnve asked you, but I was a coward. I
thought you liked tbe crowd am) tbor* tiresome
folks about yon. And I thought—forgive me—but I
thought you liked too well the admiration of many-—
too well for tin- woman I wauled to ask"	
"Ob." Interrupted Arllne. "then It was true, those
times, only two or three of them, when you looked at
me as If you couldn't help liking me?"
"Liking yon!"
Arline found herself lifted clear of the wooden
chair.' The strong arms about her held her as if they
would never let her go. Her fuee wns pressed close
to Alec's and in her enr was being poured the story
of his "liking." Her head lay on his shoulder and
she listened, listened.
The tnrkey browned In the oven, tbe potatoes boiled
and sputtered ou the top of tbe range. The door of
tbe ice box wns open, the Ice melting at a scandalous
rate, and thero they sat those two, on the wooden
chair nnd told each other all about It from tbe beginning—how he tried not to and she tried not to, and
neither could help It; how he tried to stay away today, but couldn't help coming, even when lie thought
be hnd to see ber In thc midst of a lot of gadabouts
and silly asses. Oh, there was uo name too bad to call
those delinquent guests of Arllne's,
And tben the bell rang. It was the boy with the
flowers, the same boy that Alee hml been mistaken
for. And Anally tbey both studied the poor burned
turkey at the same moment and dragged him smoking
from the oven.
"Mercy!" cried Arllne, "nnd he wns getting on so
nicely.   And the gravy In the pnn Is all dried up."
"Oravy Isn't good for us," said Trevor, as he dexterously transferred tbe fowl to n huge platter. "Now,
open the door, little girl, and then bring Htniig the potatoes and other things, because we ire both hungry
ns hears, and we nre going fo have the Thanksgiving
dinner of our lives."
"Oh, Alee! Alec!" Arllne whispered tearfully to the
gas stove, ns sh* hurried tlie vegetables lulo their respective dishes and piled them on to a tray. "It's all
come true,   I shall be a housewife.   I urn one now.
"Look out!" she culled, gayly, "I'm coming through."
She gave the swinging door a push, slid Into tbe hall
und through It to tbe sitting room.
"Now, you fill tbe glasses," she ordered.
But Alee had eome elose to ber. "Walt a minute,"
he snld. "Won't yon regret It, Arllne? The stage, the
excitement. Remember, I've got to keep on. It's my
work; I'm cat out for It."
"And I'm cut out to help you, dear." She put ber
arms about his neck. "That's my Job. Just little eld
Arllne to come to when you're tired and things don't
go straight. Just little old Arllne, whs only sake to
love you and make you happy."
But he put his finger on her lips.
"Just uy mainstay, my helper, my darling," he whia-
pered.   "Just my wife."

iiie speeches of both ministers contained little or nothing calculated lo
gain lbe confidence or inspire the
. iilliiisiasm of the Cranhrook clce-
tqrate, Premier MeBride is a past
master in the art of jollying mid he
gave full vent to bis talents in this
direction mi Saturday night. But
his audience hud not gathered at the
Auditorium to bo jollied. Tbey bad
assembled for tho purpose of learning at first band tbe details of thc
government's railway policy, aud of
lieing shown wherein the interests of
their own district, iu particular,
stood to gain by its being given el-
feet to. Premier MeBride did not
discuss tlie details of bis railway
policy, In- preferred, and doubtless
wisely sn, to stick to generalities.
lie dilated with much eloquence upon
what McKcnzic and Mann bad accomplished elsewhere in the Dominion and assured bis auditors that an
ri|iial measure "f success would follow lheir operations in this province,
lie appcnled to Liberals lo endorse
his policy because tho governments of
Alberta ami Saskatchewan, presided
over by Liberals, bad entered into
coiitrncis with McKenzio and Mann,
hut he did not attempt to draw any
comparison between tbe eon tracts
made in Alberta and Saskatchewan
and the contract be was prepared
to make with   lbe same parties.
Premier MeBride did deal briefly
with the government's side of the
proposed bargain. lie suggested
(but the proposed guarantee of bonds
to the tune oi $35,000 per mile was
a mere lieu bite, upon whieh the
province would nol be called to expend a single dollar. As to the
fact thai Un proposed line would
parallel the C.I'.K. for upwards of
2B0 miles, lbe premier said tbat
was unavoidable. II was absolutely
necessary that any competing transcontinental mil way should utilize
the Fraser canyon. He then
branched ofi to prophecies of what
the outcome  nf   lbe construction     of
through British Columbia
railway through British Columbia
would be uud intimated that, in
some remarkable ami unexplained
manner, It would assist In giving
Cranbrook much needed transportation facilities, declaring that Cranbrook's present condition was due to
lack of udcijuate transportation
facilities. .Much to the surprise io!
every one of his auditors, tlic premier made no reference to the Kootenay Central, a line of railway greatly needed aud the consttuction ol
which has been delayed by reason of
Ihe MeBride government's failure to
recognize its importance. Probably
Miis failure to refer lo the Kootenay Central was due to the fact
that the premier knows that in the
event of the policy he is advocating
being endorsed by the electorate the
construction of the Kootenay Central will be Indefinitely postponed.
Premier MeBride was hut little more
explicit in his references to the
second portion of his railway p !
i.e., the subsidizing of the Kettle
Vallev line. He did throw out the
suggestion that this line would afford more direct communication between the coast and the Kootenay
districts, but bow or iu what manner its construction would advantage
the people of South Kast Kootenay,
was not tombed upon.
Tlie premier's closing remarks
were devoted to tho lumber industry
and in the course of Ihem be was
compelled to admit his conversion to
a policy strongly advocated    hy    his
duties  to   introduce   legislation   ac-
rdltlg perpetuity of title to Umbel
license holders. This is a complete
reversal of policy on the part of
the AicBride government and a full
and thorough acknowledgment of t'e
wisdom of the policy, in ibis connection, persistently advocated tiy the
Liberal opposition for past years,
obviously Premier MeBride, despite
the loud cackling of his press, realizes the insecurity of bis hold on tbe
ountry and at this late moment is
.repined to do justice to the lumber
.icii. despite bis past record and the
uniform action of bis party in the
legislature on this subject. A remarkable feature of the premier's address was the failure on his part to
make even the slightest reference to
the resignations of two of bis former
most highly trusted colleagues,
Messrs. Tatlow and Kulton. The
cry least that a Cranhrook audience had tlie right to expect was
hai the premier should have taken
advantage of this opportunity to
explain to them just why these two
trusted colleagues of his had thrown
ip their portfolios and retired to
nivate life. Their own explanation that bis railway police was altogether too extravagant, unwise,
cc!.less and ill-eonstdered, for them
to continue in his cabinet, must
therefore Im> accepted as tho true reason of their retirement, It was remarkable, also, that the premier bad
no reference to make to the altitude
if Sir Charles llibbert Tupper, one
of the foremost. Conservatives in lb
province, in this subject. But
doubtless the premier finds it easier
to jolly an audience than to <*\et
down to the cold hard facts of tbe
AiLurncy-Ocneral Bowser, speaking
in tus uual roil of finance minister
u-iaJ etiiel legal adviser, put the position oi tiie province in regard Lo tne
v ana-diaii noi thc in sutisiuics very
,-uuuiy, 'staling that it was simply a
matter of endorsing their paper to
tne tune of ^1,01)0,000. He did not
,iiom that the province would ever
.,«■ called upon lo pay a cent of interest on this paper and he intimated
aai if ever it became necessary for
ne province to take up the note
here would be abundant security, in
ue shape of the roadbed. Air.
iowser lurlher cleared tlie almos-
,'nerc by emphatically stating thai
i con tract had been entered into as
t by thc government aud McKcnzic
atid Mann, There was simply a
memorandum of agreement, signed by
die vice-president of lhe railway and
ibe premier of the province. Apparently Attorney-General Bow ser
nas no greal confidence in the bona
ades of Messrs. Mch.cn/ie and Mann,
.ui tie went ou to say that in dealing witli people of that kind
tliey had to be very guarded as they
■vouhi take every advantage of the
government possible. Notwithstanding this confession of lack of confidence, the attorney-general went on to
.ay that McKcnzic and Mann had
perfect confidence in the government
and had agreed to tlie government
making auy changes in the memorandum of agreement they saw fit, as
well as to add new clauses. Mr.
Bowser waxed wrathful over what he
termed the inconsistency of the Liberals in opposing this deal with Mo-
lu'ii/.ic and Mann. l'hey had, lie
said, charged the MeBride government with being subject to C.P.H.
dictation and had quoted as proof of
ibis tlie Columbia and Western land
grant. Now that they are assisting
a railway that will compete with the
C.P.K., these same Liberals express
indignation. Dealing with the Liberal attack on their agreement with
the Canadian Northern, that it
meant lbe paralleling of the C.P.H.
for upwards of 200 miles, Mr. Bowser said the only reason for this
was that they wanted thc best grade
grade of four-tenths of one per cent.
obtainable and that hy duplicating
Lbe C.P.H. track they would get it.
As a climax to this explanation, Mr.
itowser declared in vociferous strains
Jiat the province would never he
called upon to pay a cent in connection wilh this subsidy. But
-.1 range to say, this hold pronouncement did not even provoke a cheer.
Very brief reference was made by
ihe attorney-general to the relire-
ni'tit from the cabinet ot his two
former colleagues, Messrs. Tatlow
and Fulton. Ho went on, however,
to tell of the excellent shape iu
which the late finance minister had
left tbe finances of the province
and announced that   he had upwards
f M,000,000 in the bank at Victoria to expend     upon public works,
Ie expressed thc opinion that it was
unwise to keep so large a sum of
money idle in the bank and promised
that llie future would see no repetition of that sort of thing if H:
government were sustaimd, but that
every dollar would be quickly expended upon necessary public works. The
attorney-general next waxed humorous over the railway policy enunciated by Leader Oliver, which he characterized as a picture puzzle. Mr.
Bowser was, however, a little tern
cavalier In his treatment of this
policy. He started out to refer to
each line of railway to which the
Liberal party propose to render as
sistanec, coupled with the Dominion
subsidy. He dealt with one or two
lines on the lower mainland and Hit
island but noticeably avoided all reference to the Kootenav Central
Having thoroughly demolished
Oliver's railway policy, at lenst to
his own satisfaction, the attorney-
general turned to topics more congenial to his nature. Thc audience was
treated to a very long, detailed
statement of the government's untiring efforts to safeguard white work-
ingmen from the encroachments of
tbe Mongolian. Mr. Bowser told
with much satisfaction of tbe provincial government's conferences
witb the O.T.P. officials and of lheir
brave stand against any and everv
attempt on the part ol tlw railwav
company to secure the importation
of   Asiatic labor     for   construction
course of bis statement be bad to
confess that iu most of bis attacks
upon thc Dominion authorities" he
had been ruled out of order by the
highest courts in the land, tlie effect of bis indictment was somen I
modified, bui whatever effect it may
have bad upon bis decided!v weary
audience, it was unite apparent that
Alt. Houser was having the time of
his life.
The closing portion of the attorney-
Heneral's sjleech was devoted to tin-
Local Option question. Mr. Bowser
said that ill the event of the vote
for Local    Option equalling rift>  per
ut of the vole cast for candidates for the legislature, tbe gov-
ctumeut would at once introduce a
Local Option measure, lie could not
sav whal majority would lie required
to bring Local Option into effect [u
municipality, that was a matter
for subsequent consideration. He
went on to deal with his administration of liquor licenses, imtimat'n1;
that he had kept a very strict
watch over all license holders, compelling tbem to observe closely the
letter of   thc law.
Premier MeBride thinks that Liberals should fall Into line and cheer
for bis railway policy, simply because Liberal governments in other
provinces have been dealing with the
N.K, This is a large order. It
quite conceivable that a Liberal
government in Alberta or Saskatchewan might make a deal with thc
U.N.H. that would be in the best
interests of either of those prov-
uces. But that does not ensure
equal wisdom being displayed in any
bargain MeBride may make.
The AicBride bargain must he dis-
ussed ou its merits and without.
egard lo what has been done iu
itncr provinces. But on this occasion ihe Liberals lind themselves in
...coid wilh some of the most iu-
iiueiilial aud most representative
Conservatives in the province. When
Kinance Minister Tallow and i liicf
Commissioner of Lands Kulton, aim
ihat well known Tory chieftain, Sir
Charles 1 libber I Tupper, Und llie
policy inaugurated by Premier MeBride wholly and unreservedly distasteful, it will readily be acanow-
ledgtd that there is mighty **,o....
suspicion ol its ellicacy. Not only tio
the leading public men in the provincial Conservative party view with
alarm the railway volley upon which
Premier MeBride has launched, but so
independent a paper as the Salur-
iii accord with the general policy of
.my Sunset, heretofore very strong*
,he MeBride government has found
it necessary to condemn it in no uncertain language.
Here is the way in which the
Saturday Sunset refers to the railway policy of the MeBride government:
' 'Several weaknesses are apparent
fit tbe first glance. It is inadequate
and to some extent specious. It ai-
nost totally fails to give this coasl
n direct route to the Similkameen
and the districts beyond.
'■At Hope tlic distance to Tula-
uieeii in the Similkameen is just IH
iiilles. Yet to reach it on the
tines which will be run under the
government's alleged policy will
necessitate a trip of 188 miles, via
-ipenee's Bridge, and unless the
Kettle Valley railway becomes a
tact or the V. V. & E. is built
through to Vancouver, the Similkameen and Nicola will remain very
much   as they are today.
"The C.N.It. developes uo new territory   except north    of   Kamloops
lown the Thompson and Frascr
rivers no new district is to be served. The C.P.H. already irives communication along the Fraser ruver
on the north bank, while the B. C
Electric railway will he running into
Chilliwack ou the south bank before
the C.N.R. can start grading. The
liiestion is, whv should the provincial government lend its credit to a
railway which follows a line of its
own choosing, it having regard t nl)
to llie necessities of through traffic
aud none at all for the interests of
lhe province. Vancouver will of
course benefit lo some extent hy
large through trailic, hut that'sort
of  trailic is of   tittle   value in com-
larison with the advantages of I iir.
ibe distributing center of a lan?e am'
growing    hinterland.      The    C
iriugs   Vancouver into touch     with
new territory    for onlv the furthest
half of Its   line through British Columbia.        For   the    rest it siin 1
double tracks the C.P.H. or     the |l
'. Electric railway."
"There Is a good deal of mystery
about llie identity of the people he-
bind the Kettle Valley railway,
which is to receive a subsidy of
WWi a mile. It has come to be
known as the hot-air line. Apparently there is absolutely no assurance that the line will ever lie
built. U it is built it will gl.c
tbe coast connection—in a roundabout way—with the Similkameen as
far south as Princeton with the
Okanagan and the Boundary, accord-
In to the first announcement, ft
will reduce the present time lie-
Lween Nelson and Vancouver from
forty-eight hours to twenty-four
hours. A direct line over the Hope
mountains would make it alio I
twelve hours. The line proposed
will give communication between Aspen Drove and thc Nicola coal mines
which will result in a splendid development there. It will not, however, help the coast one iota In the
matter of coal rates from Nicola,
Granite Creek or Princeton unless it
is huiit over the Hope mountains.
Also it will, bv forming a Junction
with the V. V. & E. at Princeton,
give us the same roundabout communication with Medley and Keremeos and the Boundary. Traffic
from Midway ami Intermediate points
will travel over the V. V. »V A. to

while the "policy" falls far short of
statesmanship or of being a real railway policy, it may be expected ito
turn the 'trick nt the polls on November 2!i next. Yet it the government should lie defeated and the
policy of .lohn Oliver were to l»e
adopted, British Columbia might lie a
large gainer. IBs idea of building
Mie Hope mountain line as a government undertaking is on the right
lines although it is a question if his
policy of general subsidizing is the
wisest one. Defeat of the government wmild not deter railroad
development in British Columbia
and it might result in a more prac-
l it-ill railwav policy for the province."

Then again tbey asked mo

inc. Mul I lelt that as this was
iy lirst venture and the lirst project
t the kind to be submitted lo the
'iihlii', tlie wisest course would be to
rovide first for thc main line, lirsl
build the artery from Yellowhead
Mass to the const and then help the
Canadian Northern in tin- way of a
guarantee with these lateral linos,
and Ihal is Ibe proposition nf the
government today.
"It is no extravagant phophecy to
say that    in    tbo course of five    or
six vears vou    will sec the Canadian
S'ortltcrn lines in operation in   these
itv parts.
"I repeal that you may not expect
to see the development and growth in
this country Unit conditions justify
.ntil you sec whal Lord Slratbcona
referred to al Port Arthur ami Port
William, that is, competitive railway
sj stems.
"■Now for ihi.s line of road it is
proposed tbat lhe government of
British Columbia should guarantee
the company's bonds to the extent of
(■35,000 a mile, 1 per cent 30-year
bonds, which would make an obligation of $21,000,000 against the
people of British Coldmbia. Hal
against, this endorsement what do we
receive'.' We receive a lirst mortgage
on the lino from Yellowhead to Barclay Sound. A first mortgage. We
tome before everything else, lu addition we receive a covenant ol the
whole and entire Canadian Northern
system lu save this province harmless
from tiny responsibility hy reason of
this endorsement. A gentleman connected with one ol the railway companies said to me the other day:
Whal is Ihe good of tbe Canadian
Northern bunds; their line is mortgaged all the way through?' Well,
so is every line on the continent
mortgaged, but I am given to understand that lhe fixed charges against
llie Canadian Northern line are probably less per mile than any other
transcontinental system, and in ail-
dilion to tho tremendous system
tliey are operating, the Canadian
Northern is entitled at tbls lime to
al least ?l!l,0(l0,0fi0 of equities in
their lands which still remain unsold,
and for payment accruing on lands
sold in connection with lheir land
subsidy from (he Dominion government in the northwest provinces. So
Ihat when you consider that our endorsement is cared for by a first
mortgage on the line, plus the covenant of Ihe company, T do not think
there need he the slightest fear on
lhe part nf lhe most timid taxpayer
in British Columbia that he will
ever have Io pav a penny towards
lhe construction and continuance o!
this road.
"And why should wc hesitate to
endorse for WI, 1)00,000? What did
good tdd Manitoba do to get competitive railways? In 1001 tbat
little province, with a handful of
people owning no crown lands, he-
cause they belong to Ottawa; owning
nn limber, because there is no timber there, and possessing no mines
because there are no mines in Manitoba, in orhcr to secure competitive
railways that little handful of
people," having nothing but a revenue
of $700,000 a year to fall back on-
raised hy direct taxation, what did
they do? They guaranteed the
bonds of tbe Canadian Northern system to the extent of $15,0110,01111. and
lliey have never had to, put up a
penny. But tbey have'increased
enormously in wealth. Thc farmer
has more, lbe rancher and the wage-
earner are much better off. If
Manitoba having no crown lands, no
limber, no mines, no seaports, no sea
coast, guaranteed $15,000,000 for the
Canadian Northern, why should this
rich and wonderful province ol ours,
owning, as il does, hundreds ol millions aeres of land, mines, limber
and fisheries of enormous wealth,
ncsiiaic to guarantee the bonds of
ihat .system for $21,000,000? Anyone who desires lo be fair and who
would study the question must agree
with me thai, compared with the
people of Manitoba, where so much
,onil has resulted for the people, the
expense nf British Columbia guurau-
. iiig lbe security of the Canadian
Northern s\slnn is but an indillereut
matter indeed. If we bad to lake
over the line nf lhe Canadian Northern from the Yellowhead Pass lo lhe
coast, wilh a 5-10 of 1 per cent
grade, which that company will
have, we could get every dollar
back in a trice from either the C.l'.
K-, lhe (Hand Trunk Pacific or thc
Oreat Northern railway systems.
"The Canadian Northern railway,
lhe people's lino in this country, will
be able lo carry on their trains from
tidewater on the coast into the
northwest territories all their
freights over a 5-10 of 1 per cent
"Now    while wc give our endorsement for the purpose of securing   tlie
benefit    which   must come from   the
on.struetion of lho Canadian Nor thin there are obligations assumed hy
that   system.        First the company
ill be obliged to deposit a bond of
I  bast,   $500,000 with the province
as    security   for their good faith in
Ihe undertaking.     Next, and by   no
neniis to be put In tho second place,
ibe company will he obliged to build
every   ineli of the lino     with   white
labor; no Asiatics will bo employed.
There shall not   lie a single Asiatic
employed on   the construction nt that
line in British Columbia.
"Next tbe company will lie obliged
Ut pay    the     workmen thc staudaul
.scale of wages for similar work.
There will be no scabs on the Canadian Northern, Next tbe company
will be obliged to serve the people
oi British Columbia at fair and moil-
i.iie rates. 1 here is u Dominion (
tci which provides for ;i railway
oiiioiission, an ollicial body which
lias had tlie endorsement of the Conservative party in the parliament ol
Laiiada, It, however, we can go one
l-eiier by securing control of rales
ior ihis province, as it is proposed
to do, it is our intention to go lo

"Before 1 take my seat 1 would
Mm- lo say a word or two about lbe
proposals of the government witb regard lo the* liinhcL laws nf the
country. I look occasion on Thursday night in Revelstoko to make the
statement that it is the intention of
ilie government al the next sitting of
ne bouse lu extend lbe tenure of
special timber licenses so that lliey
may be held in perpetuity or until
tiie removal of the timber. When
Uic    government   of  tbe  day some
ars ago extended tbe term of the
licenses from ono year to twenty-one
ears, we were informed by timber
raisers uud lhe men ami companies
ntercsted in limber that this extension of time would give them a
property that they could take to
their bankers and upon which they
might raise funds for lhe purpose of
ieveloping the timber industry of
the country. On the strength of
these statements the government of
the day extended the tenure of the
licenses. We have learned lately,
after the adoption of this principle,
ihat despite the fact tiiat the licenses
continue twenty-one years the bankers do not look on Ihem as security
at all and that as a matter of fact
they have no better standing, aro
considered as having no greater degree of security than if the period
had remained at one year. There
a as then but one course open to the
government if il proposed to give efiect to tbe principle already enunciated in the legislation of tbe country
.air years ago, aud that was lo
make the tenure of the license longer,
so tbat the licensee may hold the
laud iu perpetuity or until the timber is removed, and 1 propose, if the
government is returned to power,
that legislation shall be introduced
at the next session exleiuliug tenure
ou such terms and conditions as may
be deemed reasonable and fair by tbe
Attorney-General Bowser followed,
liis speech was very lengthy and
tired out the patience of the large
audience, many of whom went out
belore he had liuished. He, too, discussed the government's railway
policy, although in bis opening remains he took the opportunity of reminding Ins audience that he was
now occupying two important crown
oihces, that of Finance Minister in
addition to the Attorney-Generalship.
He had some few words to say regarding Uic late minister of finance
.ind went on to say that he now
had upwards of $1,000,000 iu the
bank ai Victoria lo expend on public
works. lie intimated some anxiety
to gel rid of this sum of money and
assured bis audience that hereafter
in the event of the MeBride government being sustained, there would lie
no such large sums of money held iu
the bank, but that all moneys How-
ing into the public treasury would
be promptly expended on public
works. He summed up the prov
luce's liability in tbe matter of the
Canadian Northern arrangement as
follows: The province is endorsing
the Canadian N orthern railway's
notes for $21,000,000, and went on'to
point out that the government had so
far entered into no contract with
the C.N.R. There was simply a
memorandum of agreement, signed
by the vice-president of the railway
company and the premier of tho
province. He went on to speak of
lhe. care with which any such ncgoti-
alions with a railway company must
be carried out, intimating that the
railway company's officials would
exert every effort to take advantage of the government, Mr. Bowser
next compared the steps taken by
.-.ir Wilfrid Laurier in reference to
the G.T.P. contract with the line
pursued by Premier MeBride in the
present case. A long ilisseratiou on
the subject of a "while British Columbia" followed and then the attorney-general devoted some attention
to the railwav policy oiijlined hv
John Oliver, the Liberal leader. He
produced a copy of a map, which
ne said was made up of five sets of
doited lines and went ou to say:
The insl set of dotted lines show-
id "exist ing lines iu British Columbia." There was nothing new iu
thai, 'lbe secund set showed "pro-
jecUd lines subsidized by the Dominion government." This information
was equally vital, as many u paper
railway Inid been subsidized hy the
Dominion government, und then gone
,o Kurope to hawk its charter. Set
No. 3 showed additional Hues
which should receive both Dominion
and provincial aid." • This was snfe
ground, fm- if the Dominion subsidized a line Mr. Oliver could say it
needed no more aid, and if it did not
receive a Dominion subsidy he could
say'that a provincial subsidy would
he of no use without a Dominion
one. If a company look him at his
word and ihen applied for a subsidy,
he could use his Influence with the
government and have tho request
turned down. The fourth set of
dolled lines showed "lines under construction. " This was such valuable
information! But the fifth set had
all the others distanced, for its reference lines read: "Lines under consideration."
And this wns the policy that Mr.
Oliver contrasted with the govern-
menl's policy, whieh was providing
two new rnilwnys. "Picture puzzles
are a popular diversion in the newspapers these days," said Mr. Bower, "and llie prize Is won by the
lever person who finds the old man
eating the apple under the tree. Sim
ilarly, wu h-i.e Mr. Olivers dol
(.iu./.ic, and m this case the pri/.e
t,Ov*s lu tnu person who can discover
it om the map what line of railway
,ii. filter intends to build."
i ue posiLiou of thu government
wiiii relation lo thu Local upLiou
■ic.iisciLe, which will uu taken juiui-
iy wuii Uio legislature elections, was
noxi explained ny lite minster. up
io two years ago, tne speaker saiu,
in iiuuigaui/.ud districts there were
licensing boards, which controlled
lue licenses, uml lhu licensees as
well. The government cuiue lo tbe
conclusion that the license law could
ue administered in unorganized districts belter by the provincial police
ihau under the old system, aud as
minister he accordingly1 too* over all
Lite licenses in such districts. The
new arrangement had worked well,
and lo show Ihat lbe law had been
uiliumistered with discretion, the re-
coias showed Uial lu the two years
lua license applications bad been refused, ami .tl licenses had been cancelled, while under the new statute
thero wcro Lwclvo applications for
club licenses which had been refused.
l ue Icuipci.incc people, llOWOVel,
had asked lhe goU'lliliieiit to go
luillici, and enact a Local Option
taw, such as had been cuueted by
i two provincial legislatures.
After a lull consideration, the gov-
umeul deeiilcd Ihey did not care
i lake such a step on their own responsibility, but recognized tbat if a
mty uf the electors desired such
w, lliey weiu entitled to haw
Accordingly the government referred the niatlcr lo lbe electors for
Dieir pronouncement, on November
25. For every booth ut the polls
I here would be a booth for the
Local Option plebiscite, adjoining,
and the ballots in the two elections
would be of different colors, to guard
against any possible confusion.
Some of those who were opposed
lo tho enactment of the Local Option
law held that thc government ought
lo require au affirmative vote of 50
per cent of lhe names on the voters'
list for tlie proposal to carry. The
government, however, did not regard
this proposition as fair, inasmuch as
a percentage uf every voters' list was
composed of lhe names of deceased
or absent electors, and of apathetic
electors who refrained from all elections. At the opposite extreme,
some of the temperance people
thought that 50 per cent of the vote
cast in the plebiscite ought to he
stillicicnt to carry it. This position
was as unreasonable as the other,
mr Ihat might involve a technical
favorable verdict without the major-
oty of the people really desiring the
measure. The government took the
middle line, lhe alfirmative ought to
no equal to 50 per cent of the total
vole for candidates in llie legislature
election. And if that 50 per cent
were obtained—and Ihat was certainly a fair proposition—the government
would introduce the measure.
Now, the fact of lliis proportion
being chosen did not mean that if the
di'biscite carried the law that would
subsequently be enacted would also
have a 50 per cent provision to bring
it into force in a community, or
more than 50 per cent, or less than
50 per cent. The terms that would
be embodied in tbe measure bad
not yet been considered, and if the
plebiscite carried, the natural lime
for their consideration would be
then. If events took that turn, the
provision that would go into the
bill would receive the most careful
study at the hands of the go*, eminent.
After disposing of the Local Option
question, Mr. Bowser branched of)
into a long, impassioned attack upon
tho Dominion government. He closed his address witb a reference to
the number of Liberals, who formerly
represented constituencies at Victoria, wlio, on this occasion arc uot
seeking re-election. Mr. Bowser in
these closing remarks certainly exceeded the bounds of propriety and
made anything but a good impression
upon his' audience. His statement
that Dr. King had got "cold feet"
and was seared to run again in
Cranbrook, was in execrable taste.
Kvery person present knew that Dr.
King long ago announced his intention of retiring from public life.
They all knew that be refused the
offer of the Liberal nomination for
the Dominion house last year because of bis avowed wish to retire
from politics and, moreover, evory
man present knew that if Dr. King
had accepted re-nomination his election was a foregone conclusion. The
same remarks apply to Mr. Bowser's
attack upon Dr. Hall, of Nelson,
aud Mr. .1. A. Macdonald, of Rossland. Both of these gentlemen had
announced their intention of retiring
long before dissolution oi the present
legislature. But what was particulate noticeable, was that Attorney-
General Bowser had no explanation
to olter for the retirement from this
campaign of former ministers Tatlow
ami Fulton and of that staunch old
Torv member for Vancouver, .limmie
At the conclusion of Mr. Dowser's
speech, the ehuirmaii cnlled for
cheers for the visiting ministers,
which were heartily given, ns also
were three cheers and a tiger for
Tom Caven. Tbe singing of the
National Anthem brought proceedings
lo a close.

At a meeting ut the Central Unemployed Body for Loudon at thc
■ utldhall the chairman, Dean Russell
AaKelield, urged tlie necessity for removing tho solving uf the unemployed
problem from the party arena. In a
lassing reference lu Mr. John Bums,
ae said: "There is uo man in this
country more devoted to tbe cause of
the unemployed and more ready to
-ucrifice himself iu that cause than
the mau who is at present at the
head of the Local Government
in tlie report uf the work of the
year the committee emphasized the
•'uselcssncss of temporary relief
.vor.is as an adequate and permanent
remedy for unemployment."
The work fails tu attract tho best
typo of unemployed. The men, the
Central Body desire'to help are those
who are never really reached by llie
distress committees—i.e., tbe deserving, strong useful workmen out of
mployment temporarily.
The Central Hody desire to reiterate the fact that it is work under
ibe ordinary conditions of labor
whieh is wanted. They are unable
lo offer either the proper sort of
work or the proper amount ol it.
No real and permanent benefit can
come from farm colonies, we are
told, unless special colonics are provided for different classes of men, and
in outlet is made lor those who are
trained. Then again, the report
-tatcs that—
The casual workmen become impoverished directly they arc out of
work, having no reserve funds. Any
system of unemployment insurance in
ivhich the casual worker is expected
to take a part will obviously bo
iillicult to establish, because nf that
■erv fact.
A  very large proportion uf      those
ith whom the Central Body have
had to deal are hardly capable
enough to obtain work fot them-
selves by reason of their lack of
training for anything more definite
than purely casual labor; and if
they are to be made really efficient
some system of training is an absolute necessity. Some of the work
irovided should he of a nature to
.npply this need.
But there are two sides of tho work
which have been a success—emigration
and labor exchanges. An interesting
■election of letters is given from men
p'lto have been assisted to emigrate.
In four years 2,77.1 families, comprising s,277 persons, have becn assisted to find a home in other parts
if the empire. Many of them write
back most hopefully, and nre returning tbe money spent on their pas-
-tfgc and outfit.

Are the only kind you can   buy   at   FINK'S--pay  as   much  or as little as you will—qualities
of a reliability which can be bought elsewhere ONLY at an increased cost.   Price often looms
big at the start—but if quality is lacking you  soon  forget the  price—only the worthlessness
of the goods purchased reminds you of your folly and the Merchant's unreliability.
$12.00 and $15.00 Quality Overcoats
Worth $15.00 finil $18.00 ol ntiy man's   money, and we'll leave it tc your
judgement.     44 inch t'outs in Black and Fancy patterns with  velvet collar
and No   1   lining.
$24.00 Quality Overcoats
Without question the best that $28.00 will buy elsewhere, and which we doubt
if $110.00 will buy as gooil elsewhere.   44 or 50 inch Black nnd Urny Meltons,
silk velvet collar, No. 1 lining, made up with plain or raised seams.
Quality Suits
Ranging in price from $8.00 to $30.00
A large range of patterns at each price, made up with fancy pockets and cuffs
or plain 3 or 4 Button Suits.
Clothing: Made to Order
Wo are after the man who knows precisely what he wants and will take
nothing else, who has been accustomed to having his clothes made to measure,
and who does'nt care to make' any change now. The same quality aud
perfection that gives our Ready-to-wear Clothing its well known repntatiou
is making a success of our Custom Tailoring. The 6nly difference is that in
Clothing-to-Ordor we cater more to individual requirements with a wonderful
stock of fabrics to select from and absolute assurance of perfect satisfaction or
no sale.
All our Custom Clothes are cut and tailored after being ordered expressly for
the  man who   orders them, by the largest and most successful tailoring
organization in Canada.
It's THE Way of Getting the Best.      Try Us and See.
The season is at hand when most of the time must be spent Indoors, a goodly portion in the sitting-room
and library; it is Important that these rooms be made comfortable, cosy and attractive. By so doing one
can make winter, usually regarded as dull and gloomy, the most delightful part of the year—the season of
reading, thinking, refinement and culture. Our display of Furniture for the sitting-room and library is
extensive enough to  make selection  easy;    varied enough  to  please every taste and  purse; good  enough to
enable us to absolutely guarantee each and every piece.
