He Meets with a Perfect Ovation
Throughout and Carries the
Meeting by Storm.
Short Telling: Addresses Made at the
Close by a Number of Westminster's Well-Known Citizens.
If it is.triiothot "what everybody says
must be true" then Mr. Brown's meet*
ing lust night was not only the most
HiicooHsful and enthusiastic of this campaign, but oneof the moat aucceasfuland
out hii...i.st it: ever held iu this Province,
for everybody said so, oven many of Mr.
Cunningham'., supporter*.. They could
not help themselves; nothing like it
was ever seen here. It was a glorious
victory, up old Cromwell said of Worcester tight, "a crowning mercy." And
it was well for the Hon. John Hobson
that he was not there last night, for
there were things proved againet him
lust night with a force and eloquence
thut made even hisstnuncliest adherents
feel the full power of conviction,
The spacious opera house was literally
crammed to the doors, and tbe enormous crowd Btood on the steps outside,
In the corridors and entrance hall, anywhere at all bo that they could listen to
a speech as much superior to the dreary
monotonous grind poured forth by the
Hon. John Robaon, and called a speech
because there is no other name convenient, as much superior to that style of
speech as singing is to groaning. Such
applause nnd such laughter were never
awakened here before. It could bo
heard quite plainly on Front stroet, and
when Mr. Joseph Armstrong, called by
the united voice of the great people
from the humble seclusion of a back
seat iu the hall, took the platform it is
said that tho people over iu Murphy's
camp were startled out of their sleep'by
the noise.
A few minutes ufter 8 o'clock Mayor
Brown stepped upon the platform, and
was hailed with cordial applause. He
called the meeting to order himself and
requested Mr. T. J: Trapp to officiate as
chairman.
Mr. Trapp was saluted with a storm
of applause, aud rising, explained that
this was Mr. Brown's meeting and he
had the right of precedence, and lie
would ask for him and all the other
gentlemen who would undoubtedly
speak, a patient hearing. He hoped
tiie meeting would be orderly, pleasant
and successful, and begged Mr. Thos.
Cunningham, if he were present, to
step upon the platform and take a chair
(applause). Mr. Cunningham was not
then present, but came in a few minutes
later and refused to take a Beat ou the
platform, although pressing])* invited
to do so by both tho chairman and Mr.
Brown. He said tho draught on the
stage was so disagreeable.
The speaker of the evening then rose,
and it seemed as if the applause would
never end, the popularity of the gentleman leading his audience to treat him
to what the Americans call "an ovation."
When silence was at length obtained,
Mr. Brown aaid it was an unfortunate
habit J .hat Westminster had of always
leaving twenty minutes more after the
time appointed for meetings {this referred to the vnat crowds still pouring
into the hall). He wanted everbody
to havo fair play this evening, and he
bespoke a patient hearing for everyone
who should speak, aud if Mr. Cunningham were not present he would be
obliged if anyone in the audience would
inform that gentleman should he come
in while he (Air. Brown) was speaking
that he was specially invited to the platform. He intended to be as brief as
possible in order to give other speakers
n chance.
Proceeding, Mr. Brown aaid he stood
there a candidate for representative in
the Local House. It would bo impossible for him to see every elector, aa lie
had :t great deal of work to attend to
and waa now devoting all the timo he
could to get around on the canvi .
Therefore, lie wished, now that ho did
see so many of the electors here, to ask
every ono personally for hia vote. (Applause.) lie would not oak their votes
on u personal basis, but as the representative of certain principles; those
principles ho came before them to-night
to advocate. Ho would not pledge himself to accomplish everything that he
would liko tu see done or tho people
would liko to see accomplished, but he
was prepared to pledge himself to do tho
beat he could, and to work cordially with
those who advocated sound popular legislation— something which his audience
would all agree with him in saying had
not been the order of the day in tliis
Province heretofore.   (Applause.)
Aa president of the Mainland Association, and loader of tho delegation which
wailed upon tho Government at Victoria, on tho Redistribution BUI, ho had
beon brought into such a position in
connection with thia burning queation
of redistribution, that when a requisition, signed by a very large number of
the electors, representing overy Interest
and overy shade of pnrty opinion, was
presented to him, ho felt he could not
refuse without laying himself open to
accusation of allowing tho whito feather
—n thing he did not enre to do, His
acceptance of tho request was followed
at once by tho publication of his address
to tho electors. Ho did io in a way
that all could understand the platform
ho intended to work upon, ho was now
out and ho would stay ont. (Great applause.)
Between Mr. Cunningham's position
and his own there waa somo degree of
similarity, principally, however, on the
ground that thoy were both candidates.
(Laughter.) Mr. Cunningham had boldly announced that he waa there against
all comers. Woll, Mr. Cunningham's
tactics had been somewhat pocular.
First of ull overybody heard lie was not
going to run. Then he waa going to
run for the District, and ufter staying
that way 48 hours, ho announced that
was out of politics altogether. Then
Mr. Cunningham and another proposed
candidate wont over to Vancouver llko
loving brothers (laughter), and when
Mr. Cunningham came back the other
man had dropped out, nnd Mr. Cunningham announced himself as a candidate
(roars of laughter). To quote tho sublime words of tho poot:
"And no bo utood on one log find,
And then lie Mood on t'oUior,
•tnd on which log ho folt the wust
Ho could n't have told you, uulher."
Tho audience went into convulsions of
laughter at this witty sally nud it was
flomo minutes before order wns restored.
Mr. Brown continuing, snld there
woro throe little words thnt might be
used to describe either Mr. Cunningham
or himself; those words wore "strutgltt,"
"government" and "supporter." But
the great trick was the placing of those
words. Ono hod to bo careful about
that. As thoy Btood as he gave them,
they described Mr. Cunningham exactly, but beforo thoy could become applicable to himself they would have to
read, "Supporter of a straight Govern
ment."   (Ronra of laughter, cheers und
thunders of applause.)
Mr. Cunningham had said that he was
absent from only one meeting of the
Legislature, and that occasion was
when the Redistribution Bill was being
dealt with. Why was he not. there?
Again he told ub lie would like to vote
against one measure for which ho had
voted in the House, but he did not say
which. Was he hoping that by waiting
It would be found out which was the
worst measure, and then he would como
forward and say, "That's it, that's the
fellow I ought to have voted against?"
(Great laughter and applause.)
"But," said the sneaker, rising to u
splendid effort of oratory, "Why was
it that the battle cry of Westminster
was not heard in the very forefront of
the fight? Waa that a timo for men to
be sneaking away from the struggle;
shunning the brunt of the battle?"
(Tremendous applause.)
He would tell them thu difference
between a straight Government supporter and the supporter of a straight
Government. In the one case a mun
pins hhnaelf on to the coat-tails of a
leader and when the louder goes he goes.
In the other case he goes straight aud if
the Government goes crooked he can't
walk with them. (Cheers ami applause.)
An effort had been made to provo that
ho waB an Opposition candidate. He
had often aaid and he would tap again,
that there were good men In both
parties, but looking to tho parties and
their policy and tho spirit of their legislation, if compelled to choose between
them, lis would feel himself in the situation of the gentleman who found himself "between the devil and the deep
sea."   (Great laughter.)
He was an Independent candidate,
and anyone who had read the evening
paper that night could easily perceive
that the Independent party would hold
the balance of power in the next Houae.
He now came to a subject which he
was almost afraid to mention, there had
been so much said about It already, the
Redistribution Bill. He could assure
his audience that there had been and
was a power behind the throne in Victoria (senaation). Those people are
jealous of any and all efforts to shake
that power. The growth of tho cities of
the Lower Mainland has done much to
weaken tho strength of that powerpind
has been n bitter pill for those who
wield it. But, if that power is broken
in ono thing, it can be broken in others.
The people must riso in their might and
smash that ring. (Tumultuous and
long-sustained applause).
Away back in the sixties Cariboo was
the great place in the Province, and
everybody went up there. The transhipment of goods, therefore, meant a
very important item to the business of
Westminster. Victoria tried very hard
to cut us out of that trade and was extremely anxious to got it all themselves.
They tried to open up a new route
through the Chilcoten country, and ono
line morning the Indians swooped down
and massacred a whole train of those
traders. Then the people of Victoria
came with a long face and aaid the accident had happened on the Mainland,
all tho bnd things hnppencd on the
Mainland, and, of course, the Mainland
must take the innttor in band and go
nfter the Indians nnd punish them. So,
as he, the speaker, belonged to what
Mr. Holbrook had delighted to call the
"lighting first company" of those days,
he shouldered his rifle and went off to
tho front to help punish the Indians.
(Great applause).
Then when tho proposition to bring
the transcontinental railway through
hero came up, Mr. (now Sir) Joseph
Trutch said the Fraser Valley was tne
only route for it to come by, but Victoria
used its influence to have the surveyors
sent to hunt for some impossible route
by the way of Bute Inlet, aud when the
people of Westminster objected to this
the people of Victoria thought it wns the
grossest sectionalism, and assorted thnt
by coming to Bute Inlet nnd Victoria,
the terminus would be fifty miles nearer
the sea. The fact that the Hue would
be 250 miles longer was a detail which
they did not care to talk about. And,
through that absurd objection, this
Province had been kept back just live
years. We would have been just five
years further ahead had it not been for
the senseless Opposition of the Victoria
ring.
In those days he was editor of a news
paper here, and had to work very hard,
oven having to set type; and during the
night he read blue books and other documents to got ammunition to fight the
Bute Inlet route.
The Victoria people considered it a
bad day when anything for the benefit
of the Mainland was done; but he
trusted that that bad day for them, and
good day for everybody else, was coming,
and thoy could call him no prophet if it
was not very near at hand. (Applause.)
Ho could not see anything in tho
spirit or policy of either party to induce
anybody to attach himself to it. In fact
they wanted very great reform, especially in tho Lauds and Works Department. In thia connection he might say
that what the present aldermanic body
had done for the back part of this town,
was a vory fair sample of what the Government ought to do for tho roads and
bridges of tlio District and Province.
One thing was certain, we did not want
any more North Arm Bringes such as
the Lands nnd Work department wns
resiHuisible for.
"The land for tho people" wub his
motto. Should the Government bo allowed to go on at tlie rate they are going, how long would it be beforo there
was not an acre of land for tho settlors?
Ho quite ngreed with what Mr. Cunningham hnd said about taxing wild
land, and he would advocate that it be
taxed smartly, but he did not agree
with putting a tax on the farmers' bush
land, which they did not cultivate nor
wero expected to work. They could pay
a small wild land tax, but the man who
owns fat prairie land, and who is holding on for a rise, should bo mado to pay
highly for tho privilege. ThiB tax
should bo in tho nature of an assessed
tax. Mr. Brown here gave some illustrations of the injustice of tho present
system of taxing. People who built
houses alongside the vacant lots of othor
people greatly increased the value of
those vacant lots, and at uo expense to
their owners, and had to bear a greater
share of taxation also- This wns not
fair, nud the men whoso energy, muscle
and hard work had improved the land
should receivo somo recognition. Tho
rise in tho valuo of the land is earned
by the energy and thrift of tho people
nud something, at least, Of that increase
in value should bo returned to the
people through the public treasury.
There should bo broader opportunities
for industry, so aa to give the people a
chance to mnke a better living. The
city should grow with tho growth of the
land outside its limits, and no encouragement should bo given to men
who lie back and watt for a rise.
He now came to tho Mechanic's Lien
Law. Mr. Cunningham's position on
this matter hod not shown sound judgment. At tho last election Mr. C, had
poured ridicule on tho British Columbia
Lien Act and extolled tho virtues of the
Oregon Act, and talked like a man who
know what ho wns talking about. Thon
we hnd Mr. C. coming on to thia very
platform, a week ago nnd telling them
that he did not know so much about It,
and that he thought the home net a
very good net after all, etc., etc. And
thon Mr. Cunningham made the statement that the workingmeu did not know
what they did want. But ho (the
speakor) had beon making careful enquiry and ho knew tho workingmeu did
comprehend vory clearly what they
wanted (applause).
The main principle for a Hon law, - us
he understood it, was to make the men
for whom the work was done responsible
for the payment of the men. Men who
take contracts should not be allowed to
get away with the money until the
workmen had their wages. " (Applause.)
And the procedure under the act should
be made uk simplp and inexpensive und
speedy as it is possible to make it.
What good would it be if ti man hud to
spend $40 to get $20? Or if he had lo
spend days of his precious time hanging
around lawyers' offices watting for the
settlement of his cuse. The act must be
y aud cheaply worked to be of any
use.'
The speaker said no political speech
was complete in theso days without
something ou tlie Chinese question.
(Laughter.) He had taken the trouble
to go back to his old newspaper days to
find out exactly how he stood on this
queation at that time, and the result of
his examination had shown him thut he
occupied the identical stand now that
ho did then. He was quite content to
stand on the suiiic platform us he did iu
the old days on tliia quoatii.ii. Some
old heathen philosopher hnd suid in a
language lung smecdend, "lamainan,
audi count no member of tho human
ace nl together a stranger to mv sympathies." He would notgivc the fie to hia
life-long principles by entering iuto nny
wild huraiigtic about'thc Chinese being
irreclaimable heathen nud so forth.- He
was a believer in reasonable hnrd work:
not Slavic*, toll, but good honest hard
work.
He believed every man ought to own
hia own home and hisown garden. And
he would like fo sec comforts going iuto
thoae humble homes, and newspapers
and good books, and the occupiers of
those homos going regularly to church to
perform thoir sacred duties. But how
can men accomplish this by fair and
reasonable work If brought into competition with n clnss who work, but never
own their own homes, never read any
newspapers nor subscribe for them, who
never go to any church, and spend just
as little as possible in this country?
Answer him that question satisfactorily,
nnd he might find room for a Chinaman
in his platform. (Prolonged cheers £nd
applause.) The people could see for
themselves the necessity of sending
down to the House a delegation pledged
to work in the interest of the whole people.   (Applause.)
The speaker then came to the Mining
Bill. Ho said the elections had been
sprung on the country so quickly that
nobody had had a chance to study the
legislation of last session yet. The act,
however, provides that when a miner
goes and takes up n claim he hns to put
down $105 before he begins prospecting.
This is hnrd indeed on the miners, and
the class of men who have opened up
our mountains ns far as they have been
opened up nre not the men who have
$105 to put down on u lucre chance of
thoir claim turning out advantageously.
As every one knew, the laud belongs to
the Dominion, uud the minerals to the
Province, and he could sec no reason
why the Local Government could not
give the prospectors u better chance
than thoy have done. If there had been
men in the Legislature who were true
to the best interest*- of the Provinco
that bill would never have been rushed
through the House nt the end of the
session.
The speaker thought the 5 per cent,
railway tax an exceedingly dangerous
class of legislation, to say tlte least of it.
Rich men can go down and press their
interests in the House, but the, members of the House are there merely to
jump at the crack nf the party whip
The people are not represented and
their interests go to the wall. He was,
however, not to bu understood ns attacking the Government iu saying this.
If the pressure was all from "one side
any Government must yield. It was
another illustration of the need of Independent men.
In the House last session an amendment to the Municipalities Act had
been introduced, to give muncipnlities
the power to exempt improvements
from taxation, and to encourage industry and thrift. But that amendment
was voted down, and the Government
did it, because they had the majority in
the House. At Brownsville the other
day the Premier stood up and said he
was right in favor of this very amendment. What were the people to make
of such conduct as this? If the Premier was in favor of this amendment,
aud his cabinet not so, he ought to have
men around him who would givo him
better support. This was tlfe second
time the Premier had been found at
variance with his own supporters iu the
House.
Mr. Cunningham had informed the
electors at his meeting that he had a
duty to perform, and Tic had more than
hinted that that duty was to rescue this
City from Mr. Brown. (Roars of laughter.*) But Mr. Cunningham had let a
little bit of tho cat out of the bag that
time. It hnd been said that Brown
would be beaten because he had been
prominent in fighting the redistribution
question. But that would be shown
at the polls. He hoped Mr. Cunningham in passing those private bills he
wns so proud of had not beon riveting
nny fetters on the limbs of our children,
Mr. Cunningham hud favored the giving
of a member to Alberni. Ho (the
speaker) could not do so, for the almple
reason that it just made another of those
littlo Island constituencies which were
thrown llko littlo blocks iu the way of
the settlement of the redistribution
question.
The Government hud been asked to
divide the district of Xew Westminster
into ridings, but they hud not yet complied with that request. If this district
were divided Into ridings the very
smallest of Ihem would have 5(H) voters.
(Applause).   But the Government had
Sine and takou the little district of
nnaimo, insignificant [in size, population, wealth and cultivation, compared
witli this magnificent Dislrict, and
carved a new constituency out of it, ut
tiie samo time refusing to divide the
great and prosperous District of New
Westminster into rulings, and Mr. Cunningham supported them.
Mr, Cunningham hud told the electors
that ho believed there was no truer man
than Mr. Robson in the Government
caucus. But Mr. Robson ought to be
true outside the caucus as well as in it,
for this tho redistribution question, was
a matter in which tho eternal principles
of right and wrong wero touched upon.
Hon. Mr. Robson had made the mistake of hia life In acting as ho did on
this matter. Munyof his best friends
hnd said so. Had he stepped out of the
Cabinet ho would have swept the conn-
try with him, and he would have beon
tho chosen leader of the people so bug
ns he iived hi British Columbia. He
know thnt the general elections wero
only a few weeks distant, and that he
would havo been sure of tho support, of
the people in this action. Now, in view
of theso circumstnnces, how could the
Premier mnko use of tho arguments ho
hnd used, that ho might get tho "grand
bounce" instead of his ministers? With
the gonoral elections close at hand he
was sure of hie appeal to the people.
(Applause.)
Thoy had all heard a great deul about
tho grout goodness of tho Island to the
Mainland in early days, and the bnsoln-
f;ratitttde the Mainland was now allow-
ng for thoso many kindnesses. Hut if
this story of Island kindness be true,
how came it that this question of representation of Mainland and Island had tn
bo fought out Inch by inch.
Ho had hoard a gentleman who now
occupies an exulted position, nnd whom
he did not think it would bo proper to
mention horo, (Mr. Brown, of course,
referred horo to Lietit.-GovoruorNolaon,
then tho leader of the Mainland interests in tlie House), ho hnd heard
that gentleman make the old chamber
at Victoria ring with the thunder of Ins
protests against the injustice to the
Mainland. He (the speaker) had set
up with his own hands columns and
columns of editorial in the later Sixties,
he would not say that he had set this
that he was going to read to them, with
his own hands, but it was one of the kind
he referred to. Mr. Brown here read the
following extract from au old editorial:
"'Kverydog,' says a homely adage,
'has hts day.' Victoria has had its day;
and it is time that the rotten-borough
system, by which the people of that
town have grasped fourtcen-fiftcenths
of the representation of the entire coi-
ony, and rather more than fourteen-
-ifteenthsof the entire revenue of the
colony, wero broken up nnd each section
placed upon a fair and honest basis.
Let there be 'a fair field and no favor'
iu this respect.   It is all we ask."
Now, if the story about the goodness of
the Island to the Mninlund wns true,
bow did they account for the fact that
such editorials were written and published in New Westminster. Above all,
how did they account for the fact that
they were written and published by
Hon. John Robson? (Thunders of applause, cheers nnd laughter.) But this
should not be taken as comfort by the
members of Her Majesty's loyal Opposition us he (the speaker)'could see nothing In either party and ho would scorn
to tuck himself on to the coat tails of
any of them.
The eloquent speaker then took up
the Westminster-Victoria mail service
question. To him it bod been a matter
of personal inconvenience since 1871,
and he had to suffer perhaps more by
its eccentricities than the general public. He had written against it, and
kicked against it. He had hiB pet
scheme in regard to the matter. On
the Lower Fraser, between the city and
Ladner he found that there was not a
unanimity of opinion about the mail
service. It seemed that the people
down the river wanted the service to
remain just as it waB so that the boat
could come along and pick up their
freight here and there at all the wharves
on tlie river. And those people would
consider their rights infringed were any
change to be made in the present system. To all objections these people say.
"You can go round by Vancouver," and
certainly uo man is going down the
Fraser in the slow crawling mail
steamer when he can get to Victoria in
six hours by Vancouver, even at an extra cost of fifty cents. But that is not
the question. What is wanted is direct
mail -communication with the capital.
It is a Dominion matter and he could
say from experience tbat the man who
tackles it takes a tough contract. He
had been at it himself and he knew.' As
the San Francisco reporter said, when .
he wua dogmatizing about the length of
Indies dresses, or something of the sort
"when a fellow has measured, n fellows
has a right to know." (Laughter.)
Mark Twain once aaid that "the less he
knew about the subject the more light
he wonld throw on it" and this seemed
to be Air. Cunningham's position on
this mutter.   (Roars of laughter.)
The speaker aaid he had been deeply
touched by the end tale of Mr. Cunningham's afflictions iu California when n
certain gentleman euchred Mr. Cunningham out of $45. He felt deeply
sorry for Mr. Cunningham and said that
he was waiting for a sequel to the Btory
to tho effect that when Mr. Cunningham
had gone back to Oregon he had run a
bill on that fellow to get even (roars of
laughter). Mr. Brown said that the
newspaper comments on hia candidature bail been with one exception very
fair. Those newspaper comments
amused him very much, but if they cannot defend that redistribution measure
their best plan would be to "bido u wee
and diima fret" (laughter).
Mr. Brown then' said that being a
member of the British Columbia Natural
History Society he was in a position to
put his hearers ou their guard against a
strange and ferocious animal that was
very plentiful around the city juat now.
lie had reference to that ravening beast
the Campaign Lie. (Great laughter.)
They were on the rampage and everybody should beware. Referring to his
antecedents, Mr. Brown said he had
come to this city in '03 aud landed on
the old wharf down on Front Street
when he had not a hair on his face; and
ever since that time with the exception
of a short stay in Victoria he had lived
iu Westminster. He hnd not become
rich in living here because he had often
had occasion to throw himself dead
against big corporations and it takes no
telling to understand that that does not
pay. If his twenty-seven years' experience bore, the work had done and
principles lie had upheld were not n sufficient guarantee of bis faithfulneas and
integrity he did not know what would
bo. He intended to live here the rest
of his life and in all probobillty his
children would nlso remain hi the city
of their birth.
Iu the matter of bridging the river
many had complained that he was trying to keep the K. de K. on as if he
were so much iu love with the dear old
thing that he could not bear to part
with her. (Laughter.) But such accusations wero absurd. It was clear to
overybody that we must have better
communications with the other side of
the river. Kvery possible means should
be taken to have proper and careful surveys made for tho erection of a good and
substantial bridge. He would certainly
do all in his power to get both tho Provincial and Dominion Governments to
grant a subsidy for this important work.
Thev gave to canals, railroads and other
public worka und why not to this bridge?
which would be but a continuation of
the trunk road. Ho wanted to see such
n bridgo erected ns would be n credit to
tho city nud to our noble river. (Grent
applause.)
Ho now came to what orators call tho
preoration of his address and he would
assure his hearers it was very short, lt
wua, vote nml get your neighbors to
vote, nnd, of course, it waa quite un-
necccssary to snv, veto for him. It was
very important that every man should
vote for there hnd been insinuations
made thut the voters' Hats from this
city were padded with false names. So
that if every man did not vote it would
give some color of truth to this detestable calumny, and ho earnestly assured
his audience that ho would rather bo
beaten than have such u thing happen.
Concluding, Mr. Brown said, "Come
every man and vote and show them
that* we havo a thousand men whose
hearts beat true to the old British,
Anglo-Saxon instinct of liberty and fair
piny, audi trust you will also show
them that we have bore in tho Roynl
City nt least a thousand men who have
not bowed the knee to Baal!"
The scene which followed this speech
boggurs description.   The audience rose
to their feet, waved their lints nnd
cheered und applauded nnd shouted the
name of the popular candidate for nearly ton minutes.   The tremendous sound
was  heard with perfect   distinctness
across tho river nnd Mr. Brown again
nud again bowed his acknowledgement
from the platform.   On the subsidence
of the cheering calls for Mr. Cunningham wero replied to by the appearance
i of that gentleman on tho platform.   A
! few of his supporters In one of the seats
i over near the stove gave him  a hearty
\ round of applause.   Mr.  Cunningham
appeared to suffer from nervousness and
, seemed rather agitated.   He said that
! every one present had listened to a very
eloquent speech and Mr.  Brown had
'been trying his very  utmost, to  place
him   in a false position  and  trying to
, place the bluinoon him for all the Bins that
; hud been committed In the House during
; the past session.   That was the logic of

MR. BHOWN'S MEETING.
Foit a vuBt, enthusinstic, appreciative
and unanimous audience—for statesman-like nnd eloquent utterances, nnd
tho applause which leapt out spontaneously to meet them at every period—
for the unmistakable und emphatically
expressed verdict of the electors—for all
that goes to make a proper political
gathering a success, Mr. Brown's meeting lu the Opera House iu this City,
last night, fur excels any similar occasion and demonstration of the sort ever
held iu the Koyal City, and it is not exaggerating to say, in the Province us
well. Mr. Brown's, election was certain beforo, uud by a good rousing
majority: the meeting has sealed
it. The People's candidate could not
wish to havo appeared better, ortohove
created a sounder impression in fnvor of
the plntform which ho enunciated, and
to a certain extent embodied, and in
favor of his personal determination and
ability to stand for and advocate that platform than he did lust
night. We need not say further here.
On another page will be found a very
full and faithful report of the speech of
the evening (which wns not inaptly
called by one of the speakers " the only
"really statesmanlike speech huhad ever
"heard in the province")and a necessarily
brief resume of the remarks of the other
speakers. Besides the usually large
City circulation, copies of this evening's
paper, containing the report of tho
speech, will be sent to all parts of the
District, and we mistake very much if
the District electors will not rend, mnrk,
learn and inwardly digerft, with au appreciation nenrly equal to that of the
audience which heard the spoken
words, and mark their ballots accordingly—for tho Independent ticket beforo
them, with which the People's candidate in this City and those in Vancouver as well, and in other parts of the
Province, aro in hearty sympathy and
accord. •
A TALE AND A MORAL.
Oun cotemporary, the News-Advertiser,
has been fortunate enough to dig up an
old copy of the British Columbian,
when published by Mr. (now Hon.)
John Robson, in the early days of the
Province, and quotes an extract from
au editorial therein, which is very
apropos at (he present time. Nearly
twenty-four years ago, says the News,
on Wednesday, September 10th, i860,
there appeared tin editorial in the
British Columbian on the necessity of n
more equitable distribution of the
representatioit ou the Island and Mainland, of which the following is an extract: "'Every dog,' says a homely
" adage, 'bus his dny.' Victoria
"has had its day; and it is
" time that tho rotten-borough sys-
" lem by which the people of that town
" have grasped fourteen-fifteenth., of the
" representation of the entire colony, und
" rather more than fottrteen-lifteenthB
" of the entire revenue of the Colony,
" were broken up and each section
" placed upon a fair and honest basts.
" Let there be ' a fair field and no favor'
" in this respect. It is all we ask. We
" ask it for New Westminster, Nanaimo,
"Comox, Cowichan, and we have a
" right to aBk it."
And yet the Hon. John Robson stands
up on u public platform in this City,
and refers to tho " vile uses to which
" The Columbian ia being put" in this
year of grace 1800, because it is
protesting with all its might against the
tough old Victoria canine, which Mr.
Robson wrongly predicted was on its
last legs nearly n quarter of a century
ngo, gobbling up thnt other fifteenth of
the representation nnd revenue as well
ns the resources of the country.
Fellow electors, the Hon. Mr. Robson,
by his notion on the redistribution question Inst spring, whether intentionally
or not, we regret to say, hns given the
sectionalistic, insular, omnivorous bow-
- wow a new louse of life, when he might
have taken bucIi n step us would hnve
speedily throttled it forever. It now
remains for tho independent, patriotic
electors, nud tho People's Party whom
they shall return ut the polls, to wring
its accursed neck uud relieve the Province of an incubus which has thwarted
and hindered tho progress of tho country
at every stage, and even at this late day,
threatens, unless summarily choked, to
work serioiiB und irreparable injury to
this fair commonwealth.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Vancouver World is simple enough
to talk about requisitions "pouring In
on the Premier, asking him to contest
the Westminstor District in tho approaching general election," when it
hns been known nil over tho District for
weeks now that the Premier would seek
re-election hi this District, und the
nominations are actually ovor, The
Colonist, too, eagerly copies the World
"guff'." Does it never strike lliese two
"pals" that the nlleged "requisitions'
nre altogether too utterly nnte-previoiiB
to be spontaneous. Such requisitions
as those have evidently hud tbe servIceB
of a Government wet-nurse.
wish it understood that he has not seen
the Premier, to speak to him, for three
months or so. These things don't seem
to "sorter" hitch, you know. What's
the matter with the "straight" Government candidates?
Tbe Times' Berlin correspondent, referring to u recent speech of Chancellor
Von Caprivi, Bismarck's successor,
s: It was a masterpiece and model.
He combines soldierly bluntness with the
suavity and adroitness of the diplomatist. He impresses his hearers with the
view that his character is simple and
sincere. He never stammers nor stops
for a word and his periods, though
spoken on the spur of the moment, are
most perspicuous and rhythmical, while
his arrangement of subject matter is
symmetry itself. His nerve is perfect
and opponents will fail to irritate him
and goad him to explosions of temper, us
they did with Prince Bismarck. Thero
iB little doubt that the money ho asks
for will be voted.
What is the real reason of Kiniu'e refusal to leave Africa? Though Stanley
is taciturn as regards his own experiences, he does not object to unfolding
those of Emin. In reply to a question
put to him the to her day as to the true
motive of Kudu's refusal to leave Africa
he replied with a smile, iu unaccustomed
French, "Cherchez la femmo;" and
upon being pressed for nn explanation
he described in English, though with a
fervor that spoke of Oriental associations, the exquisite charms of au Arab
belle, for whose sake Emin Is about to
plunge once again into the mysterious
depths of the Dark Continent. Perhaps
tho sud certainty that he will be blind
in a year's time makes him cling to the
presence of the one being who is actually
"the light of his eyes."—Ex.

In this connection, too, why was our

CORRESPONDENCE.
THE DISTRICT  ELECTION.
Editor Columbian—Sirj—Wo have
been lectuml by Mr. Robson ad nauseum
and an & con sequence, the queHtion
nrifiea in the mind, What do wo cure
about John Robaon? The electors pay
liim to manage their public affair., and
they pay him liberally. He, however,
ignores that fact altogether and haa the
effrontery to come here and tell them—
"Look here, my good fellows, I want
you to elect mo because I want to hold
my very profitable and important berth
aB your Premier; but if you don't 'elect
me, it will make no difference to vie,
because I can find a constituency elsewhere, but for you it mav make a very
serious difference." Of course, the
last clause refers to grunts in aid, Ac.
Rut Mr. Robsoii docs not stop in his
demands, al hia own election, he
insists upon having the other members
for the District, men who will faithfully
sorve him—John Robson.
■ Thefai'tis, Mr. Robson has been so
successful in drawing the wool over
the eyes of Ihe people* of this District, that he I renin them with sovereign
contempt. It is hot merely that he insists upon your sending liim bflck to do
as ho plenties with your lands, timber
and mines, but he insists upon having
servants lo help him.
We nre told that certain animals fawn
upon and lick the hands of the man who
castigates them, but, surely, the free
and independent electors of this District
have manhood enough to resent the
brow-beating of a mini with a record
like that °f John Hobson.
There are good men iu the field for
election who do not agree with Mr.
Hobson; the electors of this District
should at lenst give them a trial, and by
sending the "solid six" to the legislature, they will do much to render themselves inuepeiident of Mr. Robson. It
will bo just as well to let some other
constituency have the honor of being
represented by Mr. Robson, just to see
how they like it. Yeoman,

Editoh Cui.i'mwian—,SiV—Allow me
to draw the attention of would-be representatives to one thing which they
seem to overlook, and which would conduce more to the economical expenditure
of public monies, and would also be n
check on the undue aspirations of men
in power; for all men, no matter what
their political creed, whon once in
power are apt to forgot that they nre
only public servants, and, like old Bismarck, they would like to rulo forever.
The Government of B. C. always had,
and now has, too much patronage nt its
disposal, which is directly opposed to
free constitutional government. Tho
Premier of B.C.' for the time being is as
much an autocrat as the Czar of Russia.
The Hon. John Robson said the other
day to a few citizens of Westminster—
"If you cannot conscientiously support
my man, T. Cunningham, for* goodness
sakedonTsupport J. C. Brown, fori
could do nothing with him; he is a
crank." This shows the true state of
the case. The Premier hns come lo consider himself as prime ruler ot B. C,
aud he ennnot brook the idea of the people sending a representative who is likely to think and act for himself and his
constituents.
The Government must be shorn of its
privileges and patronage aud must be
brought back to first principles. When
responsible government was first granted to Canada such statesmen ns Robert
Baldwin understood, and tried to establish, truo representative Government;
strange that Canadians have so soon forgotten the history of the struggles
through which their forefathers passed
in order to break the shackles of irresponsible rule, Robert Baldwin aud his
associates in those days established
Municipal Government whenever-practicable, which enabled the people to
manage their own local affairs, and deprived the Government of that patronage that is sure to lead to corruption and
tyranny, such as wo now are blighted
with.
Before CountyCouneilswere generally
established iu Upper Canada, there
were what were called District Councils,
which embraced large areas, such ns
tlie Lower Fraser district. Theso councils managed all public works throughout the districts. British Columbia
should inaugurate the same system, at
once, and free itself from such autocrat-
ic and corrupting rule ns nt present ex-;
ists. The peoplo uro willing slaves, and j
those who may get into power arc will- i
ing tyrants. Observed,   j

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—III response to a requisition,
numerously signed, which has been presented to
me, I beg to oner myself as representative of
tliis City In the Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question n! the just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely caro to be a candidate.
If you do mc the lienor to elect me I shall make
(hat queation my tlrst consideration al all times,
mid In order to do tbls It is essential that I
keep quite free from any entangling alliances
with either Government or Opposition. But to
the people and tho advocacv of the rights of the
people, in this mutter and in all others, I can
fully and freely pledge myself: and With those,
ho they on what side of the House they may,
who me animated by a similar spirit, I will work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special treatment.
Wc of ihe Lower Mainland are denied our just
share of legislative power, and so long as that is
(lie ease our true policy, in my opinion—nay,
(lie policy which our own self- respect compels us
lo adopt—is to return no man to the Legislature
who will not make tbe righting of that wrong
his ilrst business. It may safelv he assumed
llmt those who shall bo found willing to do
right In this matter, will he the most likely to do
right in others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
Ilrst question, your representative will have to
ileal willi many oilier matters, and perhaps it
will be sii tilt-lent now to say on this point that I
believe there Is room for a good deal of work before Ihe administration of public affairs can
claim to bo what It Bhould be—government bv
i he people for tbo people. I should earnestly eu
deavor to do my share of that work.
I believe I may safely assume that you need
no assurance of my deep and abiding Interest in
everything thai makes for the prosperity of New
Westminster Cily.
I am, (icntlcincii,
'Very truly yours,
dmyltltc J, C. BROWN.
TO THE ELEOTORS
Westminster Electoral District.
GENTLEMEN :-As It Is difficult io arrange to
see each Individual elector before election day,
1 wish to put beforo you the platform on which
I stand whilst seeking your support.
Up to the I n I rod net Ion of the Constitution
Amendment Act, I should have supported the
preMint Government, but 1 now stand independent of all parties on that measure, pledged
to obtain a fair and just Redistribution Act
immediately niter tho publtcatloti of the census
returns; suoh act to bo based as nearly as iwb-
slblo upon population, the abolition of the balance of power aud the division nf districts into
one iiii'iii.HT constituencies. Outside this pledge
1 claim tbo privilege of being allowed to support
any legislation of a just and beneficial nature
which may be introduced by tbe Ooveruinont.
I will endeavor to impress upon the Government the necessity of the utmnsi liberality in
the expenditure for the opening up of nil agricultural districts and even, If necessary, to borrow money for tills purpose,
The conservation of al) public lands for actual
settlement, and tbe abolition of all sales of land
in large areas, will be one of the chief objects I
shall hold in view, und to alio assist In the
gieiitost amount of land being brought Into cub
llvutlon. f would advocate the Wild Und Tax
being raised to 25 cents per acre.
It will nlso bo myendcavor to Impress upon
tlio Government the absolute necessity of taking
steps to assist In Iho reclamation of the large
area of land subject to overflow by the Fraser,
so as to render It all lit for cultivation, feeling
sure that any money spent In that direction
will Ihi a good investment, as the lands wlll be
grenlly enhanced In value for assessment.
From the above you will see 1 eland as a sup*
porlcrof tho Government, except on one measure, and feel sure that you wlll see that as I
itma.rosldent farmer lu tlio district our Inter-
cuts arc identical, aud I hope to be aide to
materially advance the Interests of the district
should you honor ine as your representative.

SPRING ASSIZES.
(Before the Hon. Mr. Justice MeCrelght.)
Court opened this morning in the
Court House at 12 o'clock, a large number of people, principally witnesses and
jurors, being present. Judge Bole occupied a seat on the bench. -
The following gentlemen composed
the grand jurv: A. G. Gamble, E, C.
Carter, T. E. Ladner, J. E. Lord, R.
Matheson, C. McDonough, D. S, Million, W. D. Purdy, J. A. Webster, R.
iIcNair, O. McDonald and J. Taylor.
Mr. J. A. Webster waa chosen foreman.
His Lordship, Mr. Justice McCreight,
then addressed the grand jury, saying
that it was a matter of congratulation
that there were only four cases on the
calander, but thiB was solely on account
of tlie Speedy Trials Act, under which a
large number of cases had been disposed
of; though only four cases, three of them
were of tlie gravest nature, being for
murder, all of which were caused by the
excessive use of intoxicating liquors.
Hia Lordship then went on to
explain the circumstances of tho various murders, in all of which true bills
could undoubtedly be found, nnd was
listened to attentively by the jury.
The names of the petty jury were then
called, when all were found to be present except G, II. Cooper for whom a
summons was issued.
The court then adjourned until 2
o'clock p. in,
The court mot again at 2 o'clock this
afternoon when the Grand Jury returned a true bill in the ense of Regina vs.
Wilson for larceny.
This case was postponed until Friday
morning lo enablo the diifonce to procure
witnesses.
Court then adjourned until to-morrow
morning, when the Sunbury murder
case will como up.
The Choral  I'mIoh.
The concert under the auspices of the
above organization and under tbe leadership of His Lordship tho Bishop of
New Westminster in the new St. Leonard's Hall, last night, was a success in
every way, though the spacious hall
was not so completely filled aB it might
have been. The opening piece
waa a chorus—the "Old Hundredth1'
by the members of the choir,
who had evidently been for sometime under the .training of the
director. Mr. Hamber followed with
"With overflowing heart," a recitative
and atr by Barnby which was well received. Misa Felly and Mr. Morey
played the necompainment to Gaul's
"Into the silent hind," by the choir in
tho form of a part song. The choir
then rendered Staner's chorus—
"Sweet lender flower," after which
MrB. Sillitoe sang a song which
earned tt well -merited encore.
Tlie next on the programme was from
Mendelssohna' hymna of praise, " Tho
night is departing," which waB a grand
effort on tho part of the choir. " Night
Binks over the waves," n part song by
several Indies was followed by Mrs.
Moresby, why rendered Piccolqmini's
" Ecce Homo" beautifully and with
grace. Following this waa a pianoforte
and organ duet by Mrs. Pearson and Mr
Morey, which was succeeded in the programme by "Hark, Hark!" by the
choir. " 'Tia better so," was pleasingly
given by Mr. Hamber, who received the
second "encore of tho evening. Mr.
Rickman on the piano and Mr. Falding
on tho flute assisted Mr. Hamber in his
songs. The madrigal " Thine eyes so
bright," by the choir, waa well received,
Miss Kelly played the accompaniment.
Tho concert wns brought to a successful
close by tho rendering by the choir of
Handel's Hallelujah, chorus, which is
usually the close of all concerts of the
character of the Choral Union.
(PROM FIRST PAOE.)
his argument. Mr. Brown hnd said the
other day nt the nominations that he
had an advantage over Mr. Cunningham
in that he had no apologies to make.
But be (the speaker) tailed to bcc where
ho owed any apology to any one and he
would offer none either to the electors or
to Mr. Brown. He (Mr. Brown, had
the advantage over him (the speaker) in
many ways, ho has more time to push
the campaign, he ia a Dominion official,
pout-master, manager of the Savings
Bank and Mayor of tho City. "He has
a good thing bas Mr. Brown." (Laughter and cries of "brains did it.") Mr.
Brown had an immense advantage over
him while ho (tbe apeaker) had nothing
but what he took out of tho ground at
Pelham street. [Roars of laughter aud
cries of "beets," "carrots," "rats" etc.]
Mr. Brown had gone a good deal into
what he had intended speaking on and
had in fact got hold of hia platform, [renewed laughter and uproar and cries of
"hit him again," "and give us something
on the Chinese Bill."] He thought the nr
guments ho had offered ou the Redistri
but ion Bill were just as good as Mr
Brown's, aud his efforts in the House
counted for just aa much aa Mr, Brown's,
if Mr. Brown had been allowed to go to
the House and had to como out flat-
footed against 18 men. (Applause.) It
was au easy thing for a man to be a hero
here where everybody waa in bin favor.
[A voice, " You put your foot in it that
time, Tommy." Laughter.] Butittook
a little back bone to do those things in
the House.
He had not expected thnt Mr. Brown
would treat him as unfairly aa he had,
Mr. Cunningham then explained his
ubsence from tbe House on tlie occasion
mentioned by Mr. Brown. Mr. Cunningham said he wns not sure whether
he had voted on the Redistribution Bill
or not, [Laughter.] He waa not certain what liia duty was then, but an
hour nfter it had passed he would have
voted against it and taken hia chances.
[Renewed laughter.] Mr. Cunningham
then rend a pamphlet which he intends
placing iu tho hands of tbe electors this
week. Ho said that compared very
favorably with His Worship tlie Mayor's
plat form, at which tho nudience mirly
screamed with laughter. How could ii
Dominion official be neutral ou the
mail subsidy and other important
questions? Mr. Cunningham asked.
He was not defending either Government, but he waa no fool. (Renewed
laughter and a voice, "you bet yo.") Ho
believed Mr. Robson would in two yoars
be as popular a man aB any on tbo Slain-
land. (Tremendous uproar, and shouts
of "never," "traitor," "Judas," "no"
and a storm of hisses and groans). If
they sent him to the Houbo he would
co.oporato with Mr. Robson as be believed hiln loyal to the Mainland. (Renewed uproar nnd loud cries and IiIbsos
against tbe Premier).
He had advised tbe Premier to go to tbe
country. (Derisive laughter and cries of
"grass.") What could Mr. Robson do
under tbe circumstances? (As tentorial)
voice, "resign;" laughter.) Mr. Cunningham then said had it not been for
bis efforts lu the House not a brick nt
the now Court Houso would havo been
laid for tho next four years. Nothing
had been hoard from Mr. Brown those
last seven years, where was he? what
waa ho doing? There waa this difference between himself and Mr. Brown,
Mr. Brown was a theorist while he was
practical, | Roars of laughter], Why
had Mr. Brown remained in hiding those
16 years'! and only came forth to get his
$1,000 ns Mayor. [Criea of "Chinamen"
and "ralH."| Mr. Cunningham then
asked Mr. Brown ff he had read tho
Mechanics'Lien Act with tho amendments. Mr. Brown replied that he had
told thom already that ho had not had
a chance to road any of the late acts, but
be intended to study the Lien Act
thoroughly, bo as to be able to fight for
it whon tho timo came.
A gentleman in the audience horo
asked Mr. Cunningham if ho would defend the action of the Government on
tho Lien Act. (Groat uproar eiiBtied).
Mr. Cunningham aaid he was not de-
feuding the Government's action on the
Lien Act, aa ho believed they woro prepared to amend it. (Voice, "What
about tbo Chinese Act?"). He would
pledge himself to put through the Houbo
noxt session any suggestion that might
be made to him on thia aot. Mr. Cunningham waa saluted witli very hearty
applause on taking his seat.
Mr, Brown then replied to Mr. Cunningham's questions and said that
jentleraan'B address had been ono half
Hr. Brown and one half Government.
Many in tbe audience had accompanied
the delegation to Victoria, and they
knew well enough that the cabinet refused to pledgo themselves at that time
to the abolition of tho balance of power
(applause.) He did not think Mr. Cunningham would have been so small as
to condescend to mention the $1,000 per
annum question nt all. When he came
out as a candidate for the mayoralty be
plainly told the people that he could
not afford to take tho post for less, and
one of the first men to offer him support
on that basis was Mr. Thos. Cunningham, Another thing, ho was not a
Dominion Government official, but a
non-staff officer and quite at liberty to
engage in nny business he pleased.
Mr. Brown then explained why ho
had not been heard from for the Inst
seven yearn
He did not go off to Oregon whon the
dark days came, he remained behind and
fought for the rights of tho City. After
tho tight was won ho found himself
compelled, being broken down in health
and with rather light pockets, to accept
a position the duties of which wore not
so exacting nor the strain so severe.
Thnt was the reason why Mr, Cunningham had not heard from him those
sovon years. [Tremendous rounds or
applause and cheers]. If Mr. Cunningham had remained here like a man instead of jumping off somewhere where
he could mako moro money he would
havo known all about it. [Renewed
grent applause].
Mr. Beers then took thd platform and
addressed tho vast audience, he said bo
would liko to say something about that
most diabolical and infamous Redistribution Bill. [Applause.] By the request of the people he was a delegate to
Victoria ana when there heard Mr,
Davie's speech on tho subject, No
honest reply could be obtained to the
question asked, would a new nnd fairer
measure be brought down after the census was taken. Who did not know that
Hou. John RobBon bad boon in Victoria
working and lighting tooth nnd nail for
tbo Bute Inlet Route? It was truo that
he was and it would be suicide to send a
man there who would support honest
John.   [Great laughter and applause.]
Loud calls for Air, J. C. Armstrong
brought tho people's own orator to the
front ut once; when ho took the platform
the scene was truly indescribable, ho
received a perfect ovation.
Mr. Armstrong began by congratulating the nudience, Mr. Brown and Mr.
Cunningham on tho success of the
meeting, and the police for keeping
down stairs. [Roars of Laughter.]
When Mr. Robson was here, oh, what
an awful sight it was! Why, tho audience held their breath with fear and the
gas trembled in tho pipes, and all was
dread and trembling, listening to the
great man's voice as he said:
"Children, be quiet; I've got
nnice dish for you next year,"
[Hoars of laughter and groat confusion.]
And Mr. Robson told Mr. Cunningham
to support him and stand up for him
liko a man, nnd Mr. Cunningham did
support him, and stood up like n man
with a bucket of white-wash in one hand
and a brush in tho other to plentifully
daub the Premier Honest John,
[Shrieks of merriment, cheers and long
continued applause.] And Mr. Robson,
as all of us know, did not consider fourteen of our people as good as one clam
eater or sheep raiser at Comox or Alberni. [Roars of laughter and a stovm
of applause.)
Mr, Armstrong then made a most
hninorous nlluBton to tlio vagaries of
"Premier Dave" and to tbe strange policy pursued by Mr. Robson in regard to
the road from Port Moody to the
North Pacific Lumber Co., for which a
$1000 was to bo voted for, but was never
appropriated and Mr. Armstrong strong*
•ly advised the people to raise the sum
by subscription and build tbo road
themselves. Everybody knew how it
was that one man down in the house
always grabbed all tho honor and the
praise and cried "I did this." "Oh my,
don't he love us?" (Roars of laughter.)
Tlio city of Vancouver had been offered
a bribe and a sop but did sho accept
them? No, sir. sho stood up like a true
sister city in our support of Mainland
rights generally. -.Miv Armstrong then
said tbe question has been naked what
has Mr. Brown dono? Well, I remember twenty-four years ago n tall stripling of a boy scarcely stouter than the
barrel of bis rifle, who volunteered to go
to the Chilcoten War to punish tlio
Indians; cHmbingtbo Homathtky canons
with his blankets ou his back; and tbat
young man is now our worthy mayor
and the man who went down to tho
house nud cornered the cabinet on the
odious Redistribution bill. [Great cheers
and applause], and gentlemen there ho
sits. (Renewed cheering), and ho is
tho man to send down to beard the
royal lion in his honorable den, even
if Davie is smiling and the cabinet ate
grinning. He'll make thom listen to
him." The wildest'applause greeted
the finish of Mr. Armstrong's telling
speech.
Dr. Kent thou mounted tho platform
and was heartily applauded, lie said
ho had listened to the finest speech aud
one thnt showed the most statesmanship ho had hoard in many years, from
Mr. Brown. Victoria ban been rivet-
ting the chains on our limbs until it has
become unbearable. Would anv honest
man believe the utterances of llonett
John? Ho wns tho man who urged the
bayonets to be used on a homestead at
Vancouver. He hoped the dav was
coming fast when those filthy stables at
Victoria would be cleared out never
moro to bo usurped by thoso under
whoBO rule they havo groaned so long.
[Applause,] The meeting broke up with
resounding cheers for Mr. Brown and
the othor speakers.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster District
CiHNTLEMKN:—I beg to announce myself as
au independent candidate for the Legislative
Assembly nt the coming election.
As most of you are aware. 1 nm an old resident
of tho District, nml largely Interested in Its
growth and prosperity,
I am in favor nf the division uf tiie District
Into ridings, aud shall insist upon our having
our fair snare of representation, according to
our population and resources, In tlio Legislature.
Asthis District contributes very largely to the
revenue, It is clearly entitled to largo appropriations for puhlle works, nml substantial grants to
the various municipalities,
lnmnstrong advocate of a freetrnfllc. bridge
across Iho Krascr nt Itrownsville. and should
un;o that the (iovcrnment subsidise that work,
una I should also press for the construction of u
bridgo across the Pitt Klvcr. ■
lam utterly opposed to the Immigration of
Chinese, and their employment ou public works
of any eliaraeter.
I am strongly In furor of borrowing the money
naonssnry in develop the agricultural country by
opening up roads along Ihe section lines.

n tho south side of
I should n,dvocnte any rcnsonahle nssistnnci!
in railway from Hope down tho south side of
the l'raser, as such ti line would give u vast im
petus In the development of our District.
If.you do me tlie honor to elect ine I shall do
mybest to ndvtuice our Interests In these und
other matters.

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster Distriot
<;-'.NTLl-.Ml_N:-l offer myself ns a caudldato
to represent you in the Provincial Uglslaturo,
on tho platform suggested bv the Mainland As-
sodation, free from any pledgo to elthor party,
I hold myself nt liberty tuglve.au Independent support to any Government that may be
chosen ov the people As an doctor, 1 think
the District would make a mistake should tho
electors condone Inst session's Redistribution
Bill, by returning either tho Hon. Mr. Robson,
or candidates hampered by pledges to support
his Government, ns representatives of this constituency.
Mr. Hobson is standing for Cariboo as well ns
for Westminster District, so thero is no need to
fenr that tlio Province will bo deprived of his
services should the majority of tho electors
ngreo with mo on this point.
1 am in favor of dividing Westminster District
into ridings,
Any measures thatnppcnrtomoto be for tho
benefit of tho Province would havo my support,
and I think that some safe scheme might be devised by which the credit uf tho Province might
lie lent for local improvements.
The contract system ought to ho moro strictly
carried out.
I should nlso liko lo see somo modification of
lho municipal system, by whioh localities out-
Hlde of niujiioipnlltles might havo moro direct
control of the expenditures in their neighborhoods, so ns to secure tlio most economical nnd
efficient disposal of such funds nnd relieve the
central Government from tho invidious task of
dividing between different claims.
Speculation In wild hinds, whether lumber,
ngrlculturnt. or mineral, should be discouraged.
should vim elect mo I will do my duty to the
best of my ability, und trust you will givo mo
credit for lioncsly of purpose, oven should you
dlssont from my Judgment,
