Spokane's Case  Against  Railroads���J.
J, Hill's Former    Statements    Are
Quoted Against Him.
Spokane, Jan. 15.���Such rapid progress ls being made In taking testimony in the suit of the city of Spokane to compel the railways to lower
the freight rates from eastern points
that lt ls believed that the hearing before the Interstate commerce commissioners will be concluded by tomorrow
aB far as this city is concerned. Commissioner G. A. Prouty, who presides,
Is promptly cutting out useless repetitions and technicalities. Thc city may
conclude Its evidence this afternoon,
the testimony ot today being ln reference to comparative rates and the distances to which Bpokane Jobbers can
ship goods. Tomorrow the railways
will havo their Innings.
From present Indications they will
best the defence mainly on the theory
of water competition compelling lower
rates at coast points. They may also
set forth that average profits of operation for a term of years are not exorbitant and point to the prosperity and
growth of Spokane as evidence that
the city is not suffering from existing
freight rates.
Commissioner F. J. Lane is expected
to hold supplementary hearings on the
Spokane rate case in Seattle, Portland
nnd San Francisco to enable shippers
of those cities to present evidence to
show that waster competition requires
lower rates to coast pointB than to interior citleg*.
Comm'BBloner Lano Is also expected
to conduct hearings as to the coal
shortages ln the Northwest. The most
Interesting point brought out in the
first day's hearing was thc evidence
that Mr. JameB J. Hill, when securing
concessions for the Great Norths.*��� in
1K92, declared that existing rates to
Spokane were exorbitant promised to
give this city rates to enable lt to compete with coast centres; asserted that
he thought the syBtem which would
cause eastern goods to be hauled to
the coaBt over the mountains nnd then
back again was Illegal; declared he
was not afraid of water carriers, and
"The people have an exaggerated
idea about the cheapness of water carriage. Why, you might build a canal
10 feet deep right alongside the Great
Northern, clear from one end to the
other and we would still do the buBl-
nesB. With Bitch a line as we are
building a t rain crew of five men can
take along at a speed of 15 m les per
hour 1000 tons of merchandise. To do
this a oanal will require three to five
boats and Ihree to five crews of men
at a three-mile gait."

Opposition's   Counsel of   Despair
Gone Like All the Rest--Tatlow Kills Another Scandal.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 14���It has been
charged by supporters of J. A. Macdonald, K. C, the leader of the Liberal
party In British Columbia, that the present government was guilty of malpractice in connection with the issuance of
South African war scrip, giving away
large pieces of land ln thiB way which
rightfully .should still belong to tho
The absurdity of such an allegation
was pointed out by Hon. R. G. Tatlow,
minister of finance. He explained that
lt would have been impossible for members of the government to have done
such a thing had they been so inclined.
The records showed Just what Bcrip had
been Issued and all the details ln reference to every transaction. It wub only
necessary for those who wished to call
at the provincial buildings and look up
the official records in order to receive
personal asBurance that tho administration had followed the only proper
course ln dealing with the matter.
It was only another illustration of the
fact that the opposition was being
forced to "grope" about for campaign
criticism of Premier McBride and those
associated with him.
The complete collapse of the Mclnnes
boom Is still the chief topic of conversation among politicians. The pub'le
was given to understand that, when
Mr. Mclnnes took the platform, there
would be many things "doing." Tho
very stars were going to halt in their
course, when the young-man-from-Yu-
kon began to get in his work. It Is perhaps characteristic of the people of
British Columbia to refuse to be
aroused by this vigorous young gentleman. Indeed, if the truth may be
told, he seems to be getting Just a lit
tic tired of himself.
He is apparently beginning to wonder
why he came down from the Beats of
the mighty on the off chance of getting
in a provincial campaign. He realizes
that he came too late to be of any par
ticular service to his party. He could
not prevent thc breach In it and it was
hopeless for him to remedy its Irreparable blunders on the "Better terms"
In his efforts to do so, he went to
the other extreme, and made matters
worse than he found them.
Chief Winter    Resouroe   of   Christina
Lake  Ranchers Gone.
Qrand ForkB, Jan. 14.���(Ireat consternation exists Just now among the set
tiers around Christina lake over the
fact that the favorite fish, known as
the Kokanee, is exceptionally scarce
thiB winter. Heretofore, tlie various
rancherB around the lake would make
preparations every winter for the past
10 years to make a regular business of
Kokunee fishing, and would ship these
fish, to the extent of many tons each
winter, to Spokane and other markets,
where they would readily get 15 cents
per pound for the fish. The latest advices are to the effect thnt these fish
have suddenly vanished from the waters of ChriBtina lake. There are two
reaBons offered for the non-appearance
of this fish this winter, the first being
that the wholesale flBhing that has
beeu carried on for many years in
these waters has completely exhausted
that particular kind of fish; the olher
reason given ls that the Kokanee, he-
lug a deep water fish, have done their
spawning at a great depth, and this
winter do not come sufficiently near
the surface to allow of being caught.
At present, however, the black bass and
the ling fish are quite plentiful In the
lake, but these fish do not sell as readily as the Kokanee, which ls a small
fish, about a foot long, ud very sim
ilar ln snaps to the trout, with the exception that lt has no specks of any
kind. It Is now reported that the Dominion government will provide a fresh
supply of black bass fish for this lake
for breeding purposes. The shipment
or black bass deposited In this lake
some five years ago have done remarkably well, which fact has doubtless led
to the present decision of the federal
government to furnish a fresh supply
of fish for breeding purposes. At English Point, a beautifully-situated watering place lying on a beautiful beach on
this lake, several iisappolnted fishermen can be found thiB winter who had
made extensive preparations ln laying
up provisions for a winter's fishing of
th eKokanee, which hae apparently vanished for ever.

Chief Liberal  Organ of Canada Givea
High Praise to Premier McBride
for the Transaction.
The Kaien Island slanders manufactured and kept alive for a time by J.
A. Macdonald are probably past reviving now. The following expression of
opinion on the matter by the Toronto
Globe, hardly a bigoted Conservative
organ, may serve to bury Mr. Macdonald's unworthy and riBiistrous attempt
aid's unworthy and disastrous attempt
"Without the railway the land Ib
practically worthless, and as 'there Ib
no reason why value Imparted to it
solely by the construction of the line
should go Into the pockets of people
who do nothing to earn lt, the provincial government and the railway company exercised a wise provis'on in the
adoption of a co-operative scheme
which enables i them to use some portion of the 'unearned increment' for
the advantage of the people of Itritish
Columbia, to whom the land belongs.
"The example Bet in this case by
British Columbia may Tlrove to be Just
what is needed to bring other landowning governments to a sense of
their duty to the public."
Macdonald and Mclnnes Rouse No Enthusiasm at Coast.
The following extracts from a private letter from Victoria may throw
some light on tre political Bltuation at
the coast and the Liberals' chances of
making gains, or even holding their
own, In that part of the province:
"The grand Macdonald rally at Duncan's last night was an awful frost.
This is tlle actual fact: There were 31
men and 18 ladles present; 9 of the
men had no votes and 10 were well-
known Conservatives.
"Billy Mclnnes was in Nanaimo and
ran into an iceberg. Miners backed
him up against a bar and offered him
all kinds of odds ln big bets that he
would not be elected ln Vancouver,
and even that he would lose his deposit. He has 'the blues' and will go
the 'boose route' now for sure.
"Macdonald Is a 'dead oue' for all
time down on the coast. His party
have no use for him.
The Hall Mines smelter cUatd down

from The Dally Canadian, J. J. Campbell, manager ef the company, stated
that the shut-down, which he hoped
would not laat more than a day or two,

Splendid Rally lo Hev

of Slanders Rosses Whole-*
Aodience to Cheer.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Cranbrook, Jan. 15.���Tbe Conserva.
tive rally here tonight was a splendid
succeas. The Wentworth hall was
packed with a record crowd which began to assemble shortly after 7:30. The
special train conveying the premier and
Ur. Bowser from Fernie did not arrive
until 9:30. The crowd waited with the
utmost patience. The speakers arrived
shortly after the arrival of the train
accompanied by Mr. J. A. Harvey. They
were greeted with loud and continuous
cheering. Mayor Rogers and G. H.
Thompson, secretary of the Conserva
tive association, escorted them to
the platform on which A. E. Watts of
Wattsburg, and T. D. Caven also occti
pled seats.
Mr. Bowser then addressed the meeting in a rousing speech in which he
showed the utter BpeclousnesB of the
pretence of the Liberal claim that they
are the friends of labor by proving the
manner in which the Natal act and the
Election Amendment acts had been
handled at Ottawa.
The premier in addressing tbe audience, wfilch cheered him wildly, used
the map of Kaien Island and it seems to
have had a most extraordinary effect
on even the Liberals when taken ln
conjunction with the vigorous attack of
Mr. McBride on the methodB adopted
ln extremes of dragging a woman's
name Into the case for the purpose of
discrediting the government. H was
cheered to the echo when he said that
when Dr. King Bald he, the premier,
was wrong In permitting the deal, he
should if he were a man, produce the
proofs of what was wrong towards the
public In the bargain.
The meeting lasted till 1 a. ni. Mr.
J. A. Harvey was the last speaker.
Amoig the audience was a very large
number of the ladles of the city, who
wer-< provided with chairs ln the very
fro:.I of the house, which wae packed. It was a magnificent success In every possible respect and was brought
off under very great difficulties.
Cranbrook, Jan. IB.���The coldest
weather the pioneers of Cranbrook
have ever experienced was not cold
enough to Interfere with their interests
In the political Issues of the day, and
with the thermometer 36 degrees below zero tonight, the. turnout was
larger than the theatre could accomodate.
In tho audience were electors who
had come all the way from Fort Steele
and Moyle to give evidence of their approval of the administration of Premier
McBride. The sentiment of the meeting was the same as it has been all
along the line since the premier and W.
J. Bowser left Vancouver over a week
ago, and the supporters of J. A. Harvey
the Conservative candidate are now assured that their cause is popular and
that the people who have the votes are
within numbers sufficient to render a
large majority on February 2.
Premier McBride said after the meeting that lt wae auother strong indication of a general sweep of tbe Interior
constituencies for the Conservative
G. T. Rodgers, mayor of the city, occupied the chair and the speakers were

In his denudation of the opposition as.
represented by the doctor, provoked
such cheering as was never before heard
at a political meting tn Cranbrook,
Premier McBride dealt with tho rec
ord of his government from 1903 to
1907 on large appropriations whatever
people were looking for such bait. He
realised the public necessities of all
parts of thc province and would hand
out a square deal to all.
It was nearly 1 o'clock this morning
whe n the meeting broke up and all but
about a dozen or the large audience
were there at tbe finish, and when
called upon to give three cheers for
Premier McBride, the Conservative
party and its local candidate, they did
lt with a will and with an effect that
was felt all over town.
Progress of Cace.
��� A. W. Dolan, manager of the Spokane Drug oompany, a wholesale firm,
was a leading witness for the city In
the freight rate hearing this morning.
He testified that ln 1892 General Agent
St. John of the Great Northern gave
out a memorandum of a new scedute
prepared by that road, making reduc-
ilons of 15 to 30 per cent, in freight
rates from the Eaat to Spokane. Instead of putting this schedule tn force
at once another was issued ln February, 1903, leaving out all the big reductions, the greatest cut made being
15 per cent. Larue Perrin, superintendent of the Spokane Dry Goods
company, wholesale, testified that reductions of freight charges on dry
goods were followed by reductions In
the prices charged to consumers.
Honduras Wins.
New Orleans, Jan. 15.���The Picayune says tbat the dispute which has

question was left to the King of Spain
as referee, and he gave Honduras all
that was claimed by President Boni, and
Minister Kokovsoff Hopes to Meet Deficit by Internal Loan���Speaks
St. Petersburg, Jan. 15.���Tjhe deficit
In the budget ot 1907 will, If the ex-
pcc.atlcns of Finance Minister Kokovsoff are realized, be covered entirely
from Internal sources and without resort to a foreign loan. In an Interview
with the Associated Press today the
minister said he hoped that a large
part of the defclt would be balanced
by the excess of Income In 1907 and it
would not be necessary to raise more
than $70,000,000 by an internal loan,
issued with the sanction of Its parliament. M. Kokovsoff said the Issue of
the loan could not be regarded as an Indication Iif Rusia's Inability to live
within her incaome, as lt waa due almost entirely to the settlement of outstanding war expenses and to the relief of income conditions. He apparently regarded 1907 as being the laat
year of Russia's extreme financial perplexities. The competency of parliament to alter the appropriations tor
the police was denied by the finance
minister, who said that according to
the law of March, 1906, parliament cannot alter estimates based upon the ex
lsting law, but he added that the cabinet would welcome all suggestions of
economies In other directions.
Progressive Party Organized���Ready to
Offer Criticism.
Manila, Jan. 15.���Governor Smith,
accompanied by Commissioners Lava-
ter, Shwasp and Luzargua, Is making
a tour of the northern provinces. He
has received an address from Mariano
Gtisotomo, who arraigns the government tor coddling the Filipinos and
charges that its conciliatory policy Is
making the people a nation of weaklings, unfit to govern themselves. He
asks the government to adopt vigorous
measures to restore self-reliance. The
suspension of the land tax ls criticized
as being unnecessary and as causing
the country to suffer from lack of
needed Improvements. The address
strikes a new note and politicians fear
It may mean the organization of a new
party. The federal party demands the
removal of Commissioned Worcester,
Dr. Freer, director of the government;
Dr. R. P. Strong, ot the bureau of science, and Health Officer Helser. Dr.
Freer ls Worcester's brother-in-law.
The work of the laboratory is criticized
and a Filipino health officer la wanted.
The party haB changed its name to
that of "Progressive Filipinos," and has
adopted a programme advlaing the cutting down of the clerical force, its
pronouncement has caused surprise, ds
the party before has been Conservative.

Is the provlnoe of British Columbia
there is no man more universally respected than Charles Semiin, "the old:
war-horse of Tale," ex-premier.
Mr. Semltn's return to the political
arena has been a surprise to many. He
bast explained It fully In an interview
accorded the Ashcroft Journal, aa follows:
"It ls now some yeara since I concluded I had done with politics and although importuned by many old supporters and friends steadily declined
all overtures for nomination up to the
day of convention In Ashcroft.
"Upon that day, In looking over a
paper, I chanced to see the announcement that the Dominion government
had determined to lea** no stone unturned to defeat the Conservative government ot the province and to accomplish that purpoae had prevailed upon
Mr. Mclnnes to resign his position as
governor of the Yukon ud re-enter politics In British Columbia, aad that he
in company with several well-known
Liberal members of the federal parliament was at that time ea route for the
"I have often read of the effect the
sound of the bug.c i upon the old
war-horse, and this declaration of the
federal government���which I have not
yet seen contradicted���had a like effect upon me, and I think that every
person having the beat Interests of the
province at heart should array himself
upon the side of those who are striving to get Justice for British Columbia.
"On attending the convention and
receiving the unanimous call of the
delegate* present I considered It a
plain duty which I could not and
should not shirk to agree to the request so earnestly presented.
"Our Conservative government may
have made mistake*���all government*
that I have ever known make them���
but the present government waa, tn my
opinion, certainly right in their plea
for apeclal terms for British Columbia.
"Appealing to the voter* once again
I ask them for their votes for the purpoae of aiding ln securing more satisfactory financial arrangementa with
the Dominion government.
"In so far aa tbe canvass has proceeded," Mr. Semiin continued, "I am
vary gratified with the opinions expressed, aad look with confidence for
the result of the poll on the Snd ot
February next which will demonstrate
that the voter* of Tale are fully alive
to the Importance and Justice of better
terms for British Columbia."
Discus* Foreign Policy.
Washington, Jan. 16.���The second

commerce ot the United States began
loday with an attendance of nearly 800
delegates, more than 100 having arrived laat night and this morning.
Every state in the Union Is represented by delegates, governors and various commercial organizations. Secretary or State Root aad Secretary of
Commerce and Labor Strauss were announced aB among the speakers today.
Secretary Root's subject wa* not stated. Secretary Btrauas' subject Is
"Commercial Relations and International Relations; Their Reciprocal Influence." Delegates representing the

Where have they any hope of doing
Their claim of two seals in Vancouver clly is not laken seriously by Van
couver Liberals. There remain Nelson,
Ymir, Kaslo aod New Westminster, In
which they may be ssiid to have a
fighting chance. If either or both of
Fernie or Orand Forks be lost to the
Conservatives it will be not to the Liberals but lo the Socialists.
It is plain, then, that If the Liberal
opposition wins every Beat seriously
claimed for it by its most extravagant
prophet, it must still be in a minority
In the house.
It is, therefore, no exaggeration, but
plain statement of fact, to say that the
only hope of stable and really responsible government lieB with Premier
.McHrlde and his party.
The Issue of the exploded Kaien
Island scandal can hardly be of any
further service after the lucid and candid explanation given by Premier McHrlde, and the Toronto Globe's unusually warm praise of the arrangement, which it highly commended as a
model to all other land-owning provincial governments.
The Columbia & Western land grant
ss anslal fared no better. The facts of
Ihe matter are hardly disputed. No
fair-minded man will accept J. A. Macdonald's Interpretation. The bargain
may have beeu originally an Improvident one, the railway company's strict
legal title may have elapsed, as hundreds of other companies' titles have
lapied, but to declare Its iastid forfeit
under the circumstances would amount
to repudiation.
The criticism of the Increase ln taxation iB tiie shallowest of all. The ne-
cs-ssity for increased revenue Is admitted, us, of course, it lnust be. The
onij alternative method of accomplishing it suggested is Mr. Macdouaild's
naive, und perhaps characteristic, question, "Why didn't they tax the railways?" As the taxes on the railway
companies were Increased about 500
per cent., far more than on any other
class, It is hard to underBtand what
Mr. Macdonald would advocate, short
of a genuine "hold-up" in true Ottawa
In short, every attack launched by
Ihe opnsiiioii has miserably railed, and
tlieir failure has converted every independent elector In the province into a
stanch supporter of llie government.
It would be Interesting to find out
just how much the editor of The Dally
News knows about the public schssssl
system of British Columbia. He would
never have spoken of "complex machinery" in connection with that system
if he had taken the trouble to consult
any member of the Nelson leachiug
staff, or any of the board of trustees.
Dr. Hall has served as a trtislee for
many years. He can explain to the
editor in two minutes all about the
complex machinery in question. Or, if
the reference was solely lo rural
schools any member of the Hume
board will enlighten him. The duties
and lhe financial burdens ImiHised upon the people of British Columbia are
as nothing compared with those performed as a mailer of course in every
other province of Canada. Does the
editor really think that the men of
British Columbia are less intelligent or
less public-spirited than all other Canadians? A busy newspaper man may
be pardoned for ignorance of a public
Bchool system of which he has bad no
public experience in any capacity, but
surely not for making reckless statements In spite of such ignorance.
During an election campaign co.iduct"
ed on party lines, the elector Is wise
who acquaints himself with the iwllcy
of each party and after carefully weighing the same, pro and con. decides to
cast bis ballot in favor of tbat party
which offers a safe and sound system
of government for the country. In the
present campaign we have the record
of the Conservative government for th
past three years, together with a fair,
outspoken aud aggressive policy enunciated for future work, a policy broad
and constructive in principle, and one
which will advance the Interests of every section, aud prqniote the welfare
of every industry, hi opposition to
this what is or has been offered by
the Liberal party? The principle that
regulates tbe party may be summed up
in few words���"Find fault with the
way even thing ia done, but never commit the party by saying anything can
be done better." The destructive order of mind is seldom allied to the constructive. The Liberals are destructive
by nature and by policy. They can reduce a building into rubbish, but do
not profess to turn rubbish into a
building. Tbey are critics and do not
commit themselves to the proposition
of amendments that can be criticized
by others.
Premier McBride has been accused
by his opponents���by J. A. Macdonald
in his plaintive jeremiad in Nelson���
of being too friendly with the C. P. R.
company. He has also been described
as a man of no ability���a mere "prince
of jolliers," to quote the chaste diction
of our morning contemporary. But in
the course of his speech last Friday
night Mr. McBride read a letter from
James J. Hill that Indicated not ouly
friendly relations but respect for the
premier by the magnate. How about
that? Has Mr. McBride made a lightning change since Mr. Macdonald
spoke in Nelson; has he abandoned
the C. P. R. and concluded an alliance
with the Great Northern? No, that
cannot be, for the letter was dated
long prior to Mr. Macdonald's charge,
which, of courBe, is true. Has Mr. McBride succeeded in 'Jollying" the
astute Jim Hill? No, that cannot be,
for he is a man of no ability; he can
only "jolly" Ignorant and stupid people; that is, all but Liberal editors.
Well, there is only one other alternative; The letter must bave ben a forg-
ry. Presumably The Daily News has
already telegraphed Mr. Hill for a repudiation of it.
The Dally News this morning devotes
nearly two columns, of editorial and
alleged news, to the Conservative nomination ln Ymir. Unfortunately, Its
news report���distorted aB it Is���belles
the editorial statement. The conven-
dld not begin on Saturday afternoon.
Expressions of opinion by individual
delegates at that time or during the
evening are Irrelevant. The convention began at 3 a. m. Sunday and wns
over before 3:25 a. m James H. Scho-
field's wsb tbe only name presented.
If thai does not constitute a unanimous
nomination, perhaps The Daily News
will explain why. The Canadian's authorities for its reports are James H.
Schofleld and Harry Wright. That report has been described as false and
misleading, on the authority of whom?
Was a Daily News' reporter eavesdropping, or merely guessing and
dreaming, aB usual?
Harry Wright, late M. L. A. for Ynilr
district, bas gracefully ended his po-
1'tlcal carier, for the present at least,
and by his own act. Although the
final, in fact the only, meeting of the
nominating delegates was brief and
thoroughly harmonious, It iB common
knowledge that before that stage was
reached, when lt was first recognized
tbat J. H. Schofleld would be the
choice of the majority, Mr. Wright was
urged by stubborn and injudicious personal friends and admirers to stand as
an Independent.   He loyally and man-

In pursuauce of our suggestions iu
yesterday's Issue that the local Liberal
standard-bearer should be encouragesl
in his efforts to become a successful
public Bpeaker, and a propros of our
tribute to his courage, we offer him
the following as a model short story,
which has both point and application:
A farmer, through whose property a
line of railway ran saw oue of his
prize bulls charge full tilt at an advancing locomotive. When It was over
the farmer, sadly apostrophizing the
shattered combatant, said:   "Well, old
man, I admire your pluck, but 	
your discretion."
lt Is a long time since anything has
been said either locally or in coast
organB about those tremendous ami irreparable splits in the Conservative
rankB whicli meant certain defeat for
them. Evidently the correspondents
have become sober and sue only one
party now, where formerly they saw
two or more. In tlie menntime the Libera) defection in Victoria has evidently become hopeless. The reduction of
the attendance at Ihe nomination meeting from COO to Icrs than 200 must
strike even the blindest partizan as
IHisssessIng some  significance.
The campaign will lasl nearly three
weeks longer. The various issues
raised by the Liberals have faded
nway one by one. .1. A. Macdssnabl
tardily withdrew the Better Terms
(iwstlon when he realized that the
province wns united nnd firm In support of Premier McBrldc'B claims. Willie Mclnnes hardly improved matters
by threatening thai the province must
reject Its premier If It hoped for Jus-
lice. The people of the West are not
slaves by nature, and Willie's thrcut
will certainly add resentment to determination.
J. A. Macdonald has came, saw and
did not conquer. Willie Mclnnes will
give a pyrotcchnlral display this evening In tlie opera house, which we aro
assured will be special'*? warm d for
the occasion. J.at r, N' Ison will have
the pleasure and pllvitege of listening
to poor John Oliver. Me.odonald, Mclnnes, Oliver���three one but less ihan

has nothing of debating power* which
J. A. Macdonald has In a small degree,
he ls not so perBeveringly and enduring glib aB Willie Mclnnes, and he
does not pose, but he has Borne of the
elements of a man, he is never so distressingly lugubrious as J. A., nor,
though always fallacious, Ib he ever bo
obviously wild and foolish as Willie.
