The marvellous success achieved In
Ihe fru:, growing Industry in Kootenay
during the last two years Ib, in the
opinion of practically every fruit grow-
' *.* in the district merely an Insignificant beginning in comparison with the
results still to be achieved. It is certain nosn the immense area taken up
in pre-emptions during the fall and
winter, and from the number of sales;
recorded to actual settlers, that before
the end of 1907 the number of persons
ln Kootenay. settled on the land and
engaged in fruit growing will be more
than double what Is is today.
Undoubtedly the surprising success
of the Infant Industry, as frankly conceded by so staunch a Liberal as
James Johnstone, president of the Hritish Columbia Fruit Growers' Association. Is due to a great degree to tho enlightened policy of the agricultural department of provincial government,
which has given advice, instruction, information and substantial aid to those
engaged In the industry, and has enabled them to compete successfully In
fruit exhibitions In tho world's greatest
market, I.ondon.
Hut no amount of government aid
could have made such lesults possible
If the district hnd not the unrivalled
advantages ln soil and climate
have been conceded by every
to a Kootenay orchard.
Under the circumstances the extent
of land ln Kootenay suitable for fruit
growing is a question of very great Importance. As bits- as a year ano lt was
estimated at 50.000 acres along the
shores of Kootenay Lake and its West
Ann. and in the valleys of the Kootenay
and Slocan Rivers. Rut since then the
shores of the Arrow Lakes have been
explored and taken up to a large extent, and It has heen proved that not
only are the shores of both lakes, for
nearly their whole length of over 100
miles splendidly nilnpted for fruit
growing, but that nearly every one of
the many streams flowing into the lake
on either side waters a fine valley, narrow, probably, but containing many
acres of rich soil and generally well
The greatest of them all Is Fire Valley, about the centre or the west shore
of the lakes, It Is Ihe connecting link
between the valleys of Okanagan and
Harry Wright. M. L. A. for Ymir riding, which Includes a part of the wcbI
shore, once declared thnt Fire Valley
was, above all other districts, the garden of llrlllsh Columbia.
W. A. Calder, who has been In tbe
c'.ty late'y, kindly furnished The Dally
Canadian with addllionnl Information.
In reply to many questions, Mr. Calder
"Fire Valley Is easily the largest
tract of fruit land In Kootenay. It contains 35.000 acres. The entrances to
the valley aro at the norlh and south
ends, between which lt lies almost par
a'lel with the lake, separated from It
by a low divide.
"There have been a few settlors In
the valley since 1893. when n govern
ment road was built through it. Kver
sinco I! hns been recognized as the unt-
ural road from Kootenay to Okanagan,
There are charters still in existence

Into 10-acre block j for orchards.
"The climate is the same as that of
Nelson, nnd the soil Is a rich loam with
a day subsoil.
"The valley will never need Irrigation. The Inanochlln and many other
beautiful streams flow through it, all
fed from the high hills that enclose the
valley on both sides.
"Westward towards the Okanagan are
splendid timber lliults and rich and extensive mineral deposits, which will afford employment to a large population,
nnd supply a rich market right at the
doors of the fruit growers.
"The provincial government bas
treated tis well In the matter of roads,
and generally has given us every possible assistance.
"At each end of the valley Is a post
office and a whatf, and the C. P. R.
steamers call at each twice dally.
"The few settlers, although many of
their orchards are yet hardly in bearing, shipped 300 tons of produce last
"All things considered Fire Valley is
the   best part of  all  Kootenay.     Certainly, no one wbo Is there now could

Settlement of Church and State Question in France Is Still Not
Rome, Jan. 30.���It ls reported that
the pope has made his last sacrifices
In the matter of the conflict with
France. The Vatican Insists that not
only must the parish priests and the
mayor sign the leases, but that the
bishops and the prefects countersign
them. If the proposal of the bishops is
nol accepted the abandonment of the
churches In France is considered likely.
Paris, Jan. 30.���The concenusu of
opinion expressed in clerical newspapers this morning on the developments
of yesterday In the religious situation
is that Minister of Education Briand
slid not Intend to destroy completely all
hopes of a settlement by the phrase
"The conditions are unacceptable," but
that he merely desired to voice the
Idea that if they are to. be right and
satisfactory there must be concessions
by each party to the controversy, and
that the terms of the bishops were not
acceptable, and that at the outset they
had the appearance of an ultimatum.
The extreme anticlerical view Is summed up In tfip Petite Republic, which
says; "The conditions nre unacceptable
nml we do not think they will be accepted."
Paris. Jan. 30.���The French cabinet
has hardly recovered from its surprise
ar the proposition which the bishops,
with the approval of the pope, submitted to the government for a modus vl-
vmill on the basis of a virtual lease of
ihe churches ln perpetuity to the parish priests by the mayors, and appar-
s'titly some confusion existB as to what
cssurse to ndopt, while the off-hand remarks of tbe minister of education, M.
Hrinnd. In the chamber of deputies laat
night, In which he said that the conditions proposed on behalf of the episcopate were unacceptable, does not necessarily exclude the possibility of a om-
promise, The attitude of the extreme
: ndleals, who are Incensed at the p��r-
s'lnptory tone of the communication lu
the despatches from Rome, representing Ihe Vatican as being determined,
null sn the bishops' proposition Ib 1m-
medlat'ly and iinanlnioiiflly accepted,
lo order the pnrlflh priests to leave
their churches and suspend worship,
greatly otubnrrasses Ihe moderates. The
latter believe lhat the government, having accomplished the separation of
church nnd Btate, can afford to accept
any definite solution of the difficulty
in the Interests of peace.
The Echo de Paris remarks: "The
means for pnclficatlon have been offered. If Ihey are brutally rejected the
government will Inevitably bo driven
to persecution."
The Figaro says; "The whole world
will Interpret the bishops' proposition
a*. a sincere desire for conciliation."
The Oattlols states that Rrland's
words prove that the government decides a final rupture. "Let lt accept
an honorable way out of the difficulties."
Easily Crushed.
Amsterdam, Jan. 30.���A brief encounter with the troops sent to the

Island of Java, Dutch East Indies, sufficed to suppress the rebels, whose
ringleader and 15 followers were killed
and many wounded.

Cranbrook, Jan. 30.���According to
the Implication of the Nelson Daily
News, Billy Mclnnes was compelled to
resign his office of governor of the

fasts, long viglU of prayer, penitential

Funeral of Murdered London Merchant
Was Largely Attended.
Lon.Ion. Jan. 30.���That unusual interest ls being taken ln the tragic death
of William Whiteley, who was shot and
killed ln his great department store on
January 24 by Horace George Ralner,
was shown by the scenes at the funeral
of the merchant this morning. Long
before the hour for the ceremony, thousands of persons gathered about the
Whiteley residence and dense masses
lined the streets leading to the church.
Most of the shop sin the Westbourne
Grove district kept their shutters up

According to the newspapers Mr.
Whiteley bequeathed $6,000,000 to provide almshouses and homes tor the deserving poor.
Filled to Establish Case Agalnat Former London Manager.
London, Jan. 30.���Justice Sir Charles
Swlnfrn Eady, in the chancery division
ot the high court of Justice today pro
nounced Judgment lu favor of D. J.
Haldeman, former London manager of
lbe Mutual Life Insurance oompany of
New York, and the North British &
Mercantile Insurance company, ln the
suit of the Mutual company, asking for
Injunction and Indemnities. Justice
Eady said that plaintiffs' case had
wholly failed against both defendants
and It was therefore dismissed with
costs against the Mutual company. The
Mutual Life Insurance company asked
for an Injunction and indemnities
against Mr. Haldeman and tbe North
British company, alleging that while be
was still ln their employ Mt*. Haldeman
suggested to Ihe Nortb British company
a scheme to transfer the British policy
holders of the Mutual to the North
Hritish, and that on the day of the termination of bis engagement with the
Mutual Mr. Haldeman sent out a circular to all the British policy holders ln
the Mutual and transferred them to the
North British. II Is therefore contended by the Mutual that Mr. Haldeman

Grand ForitB, Jan. 29.���The nearest

Advices received here today say that
the Brooklyn mine, owing to lack of

The reports handed Into campaign
headquarters will show that It ls now
only a question of how large the majorities will be ln favor of the Big Four.
The Conservative* ot Victoria, feeling
that the Mainland will roll np a large
majority ln favor of the McBride administration, are determined that the
Capital City ahall be right to the front
with one of the strongest endoraations
to be found In the ballot bote* oo tha

Premier McBride left yesterday
morning for Vancouver and the Fraser
Valley constltuende*. He will return
on Friday to deltver bis final message
to the electors on the eve of the polling day, and on that occasion his supporters may expect to hear him effectively silence the last faint sound of
the slander slogan that has been used
by the enemy ever since the opening
of the campaign. Throughout his tour
of the Mainland the premier met all
the opposition that could be induced to
appear on the same platform with him
and even went out of his way to pnt
the qntetns on Smith Curtis and others,
who believing themselves safe ln remote parts, reiterated the charges that
had been refuted to the complete satisfaction of enormous gatherings ln the
centres. It was k case of absolute vindication all along the line of the moat
triumphant tour ever experienced by a
political leader ln British Columbia. It
was not, however, so much the refutation ot slander as It was the record of
the government unreservedly submitted,
lhat appealed to the great masses of
voters ln the country where the timber
and mineral Industries are thriving aa
never before, and where the agriculturist ls happy In the possession of abundant fruits of the fertile soil.
These electors, who were far too
numerous for the usual hall accomodations, were always remarkably enthusiastic In their greetings and most pronounced In their expressions of approval and appreciation.
The financial achievements of the
government, through which deficits had
been changed Into surplus, and a high
credit established for the province; the
fairness and equity of the School Act;
he splendid business deal with the
Grand Trunk Pacific ln regard to Kaien
'stand; the defeat of charter mongers,
Illustrated by the truth of the Midway
ft Vernon cancellation: the honest settlement of the Columbia & Western
land claim; the successful advertising
of the agricultural resources of the
province, together with effective ef-
'orts to attract settlers: tho Better
Terms question; the careful consideration of the Interests of all classes; and
the wise legislation that bad encouraged capital, protected labor and
brought about a wonderful Increase of
Industrial activity, particularly In the
lumber line, were all exhanselvely explained.
Based on all these the premier's appeal for a continuation ot public confidence In his administration as agalnat
an untried and questionable combination of fair-weather politicians, some of
whom were projected into the campaign by the Ottawa machine, Invariably brought a verdict In his favor so
strong that no minority voice could be

The article in the Financial News, a
London, Eng., paper, which The Dally
News can only explain on the theory
that the paper was briln-d, Is as follow*:
"The large number or home Investors who are interested ln British Columbia will watch the Issue of the
elections now In progresi there with
close attention and some anxiety,
.hero is not. much reason to aniiei-
pats- that tin- s'risny administration of
Mr. .Mt'Hrisls... which hau done so lunch
to advance the prosperity uf the country will be overthrown, but sliould
such an event unhappily occur, those
who have the InterfBtB of lhe province moBt closely at heart fear that
a serious setback lu Its economic progress will be experienced."
The Dally Newa offered a cheap and
easy snes-r about advertising rates. Reputable papers do noi publish advertisement! in their editorial columns.
The opinion of t he Plnanclnl sN'ewB
should uot hnve specially enraged our
contemporary, The same thing, practically, has been said by many substantial citizens of llrltlsh Columbia, Including It. P. Rithet and James John-
No friend of J. A. Macdonald will
wish, any longer to accuse him or being
in charge of the Opposition campaign.
Our report In yesterday's Issue of Mr.
Macdonald'B addroBB ut a Liberal meeting ln Greenwood shows that ttie nominal leader of the opposition haB abandoned all attempt b to win by Blander.
It Is true that Mr. Macdonald was himself the author of the Kaien Island
scandal, but. though his persistence In
it nfter his charges had proved groundless was unjustified, we are quite prepared to grant that Mr. Macdonald
really believed In them himself. But
bis final abandoning even of Kaien
Island shows that he, almost alone
among prominent Liberals, is determined not to be associated in the public mind with "liar and Blunderer" Mclnnes. Hut lt ls equally apparent that
any control Mr. Macdonald may ever
have exercised over his following has
utterly vanished. It is not the calm
and gentlemanly, if rather feeble, Btyle
of the Rossland member that has been
adopted by Liberal speakers on the
platform and by the Liberal press. The
fashion for both haB been set by the
disgraced ex-governor of the Yukon���
"drunken anil Immoral," "utterly unprincipled." "a liar ond a slanderer."
Orators and editors alike have followed
his lead. In obedience of course to the
instructions of the Ottawa machine, in
his bold campaign of lying and slan-
slerlng. They are Imitating also his
utterly recklesB disregard of truth, or
even of plausibility. Possibly that
judgment is correct. Those who follow MclnneB are either too Ignorant
und stupid lo recognize the utter worth-
iessiis'ss of the man, or too much
steeped in tho ethics of the machine
to care what means are used.
Never In the history of Canadian politics has an opposition so richly deserved the defeat It has suffered as
the Liberal party of British Columbia
merits tho annihilation that will be re-
corsied Saturday night. Three years of
factions and silly obstruction In the
legislature, that only proved their Incapacity even as critics, have been followed by a campaign in which public-
Issues have hardly figured at all, no
alternative policy has been even faintly suggested, but the whole fighting
organization has been devoted exclusively to the manufacture and circulation of slander after slander, many of
them so absurd as to expose their own
falsehood, and all the rest exploded as
soon as examined. Is it any wonder
that the responsible citizens of the
province turn with disgust from such
a crew to the united and capable party that haB already piloted the province from insolvency to credit and
The Victoria Times seriously tells
its readers on a red and yellow front
page that "the outstanding feature of
the campaign haB been the reception
accorded everywhere to J. A. Macdonald. who has invariably attracted larger audiences than the premier." What
can be the purpose of such an utterly
silly falsehood? Willie Mclnnes, as a
curiosity, attracts larger audiences.
The premier's meeting ln Nelson was
three times as well attended as Mr.
Macdonald's. The same Is true everywhere throughout the province. What
is the lying for?   Mere force of habit?
Hints from the opposition preBB of a
C. P. R. vote secured to government
candidates are highly amusing. One
has only to think over the list of C.
P. R. officials In Nelson, for instance,
to recognize that a man's political
views are not affected by his position.
As for the members of train crews, machine shop force, trackmeu and others,
they include Conservatives, Liberals
and Socialists. We do not pretend to
know In what proportion. The suggestion that C. P. R. employees vote aa
they are told lt Is an insult to the men
a.i well as to the management, and ls
more likely to he resented by the former than by the latter.
Probably the most flagrant offence
yet committed in the campaign Is the
brazen lying of 1). G. Macdonnell, of
Vancouver, reported in our news columns today. Not even Mclnnes, the
professional "liar and slanderer" has
excelled tlle ex-Ontario barrister. To
misquote any man deliberately is decidedly risky tactics, but to Impute to
a man of Sir Hibbert Tupper's prominence words that he never used, with
the certainty that the lie would be
exposed within 24 hours, is proof either
of Imbecility or of sheer physical inability to tell the truth.

Tho Dully News Is fast qualifying for
the 'same claBS as the Vancouver
World, by persistency in repeating
whal have been proved to be lies, and
deliberate and malicious lies. Premier
McHrlde haB not Btated that there waa
nothing wrong In "n cabinet minister's
acceptance of a valuable gift from a
syndicate seeking governmental concessions through him." Premier McBride has never Bald anything of the
kind. No member of Mr. McBrlde's
cabinet has accepted any gift. The
Dully News knows this perfectly well.
The alleged letters of Sir A. P. Caron
and R. F. Green, that were to establish
a corrupt bargain hnve never appeared.
Their existence was thc only noBBlble
excuse for the monstrous statements
of the Vnncoa *er World. That paper
claimed to have the letters and promised to publish cuts of them. That
statement and that promise, It ls now-
admitted were deliberately false.   Next
What next? There are still two days
and three nights before voting begins.
Is the opposition's whole supply of Ilea
exhausted and the secret of the invention lost? 9urely Mclnnes and lhe
Vancouver World between them can
think of something yet that may take
a few hours to disprove. It would be
a i��or Joke to suggest that either had
any visitation of conscience.
There Is no doubt now in the mind
of any sane man with any acquaintance
with the provincial situation that the
result of Saturday's elections will be
the triumphant majority of the first
stable and efficient administration that
the province has had ln ten years. Will
the member for Nelaon be a member of
that triumphant party, or a hopelessly
beaten Opposition?
Has J. Fred Hume revlBed his plat

approval of aid to railways? Has Dr.
Hall? It doesn't really matter. What
all three together think on that or any.
thing else will not affect the policy
and administration, but is evidence,
conclusive though amusing, thnt apart
from slandering the ministers, none of
the Liberal candidates have thoughl
Berlously of any public question.
Since they have been challenged for
a definite statement as to what they
would do ln the matter of railway lax-
allon, especially of the British Columbia Southern land grant, thc Liberals
have become silent on that head. They
should not huve forgotten originally
that even criticism Involves certain responsibilities, and that an attack on one
line of conduct Implies disagreement
with it aB welt as disapproval of it.

Ml*, layior then outlined the financial position ol the province at me time
.ho Mciinoe government i_u_ omce
urea anu oue-halt years ago. ihe annual deiiuit, he said, ior tne U yeais
proceeding iau2 had .ecu $*i_u,ouu;
while the deficit for the liuanelui yoar
tM2i had amounted to no less sum
man $1,600,000, while tne coudiuou ot
she province was such mat it was, to
say the least, a very dllticult mutter
indeed, to induce anybody t invest auy
capital lu the country. The credit oi
the province waa sadly Impaired, the
treasury was practically exausted, and
lu place the finances of the country upon a sound basis was the first task ot
the McUride administration. No bank
would accept the account of tha province, and lu order to float a loan ot a
paltry $1,000,000, It waa necessary to
pay uo less an Interest than 5 per cent.
1'hls, he thought, sulficlenlly indicated
the financial position at the commencement of the McBride administratiou's
term of office. At the close of their
first financial year they were able to
s.iow a surplus of $36,000, not a very
najusome ssiiphis, perhaps, but still a
decided impro.ement over a $1,500,000
deficit ILoiid cheers.) The second year
they were able to show a surplus of
$256,000. (Cheers.) This, he thought,
was uot such bad financing. I Cheers.)
Three years ago, capital couli. not be
induced, by any means, to enter the
province.. Today, capital was freeiy
flowing In from all quarters, and the
mining and timber industries were upon
a sounder basis than ever before in
the history ot BritiBh Columbia
(Cheers.) In reference to the lumbering industry, he said, the McBride ministry had passed legislation which
guaranteed the lumberman a stability
ol title to bis holdings such as he had
never before enjoyed; inasmuch as he
has only lo pay his annual license fee
���in this part of the province, $115 per
mile���to hold his limber, as this license
Is perpetually renewable annually. (Applause.) "Contrast," he said, '"with this
system, that outlined by Mr. Smith-
Curtis, a prominent Liberal, In his platform; which is to 'Publicly sell timber
as needed by millmen,' the idea being
*,o sell to those offering the largest
slumpage royalty, thus eliminating the
speculator, and obtaining the millions
ol dollars loat to the people by the foolish  system now ln vogue."
This would mean that tlie man who
dares the mountains, seeking what fortune may give him, and finding a valuable tract of timber, would be totally incapacitated from profiting by his discovery, unless he were already the owner of a sawmill. Would this be fair'.'
Would this be just? Would lt be a
square deal to the pioneer���the man
who first goes out into the mountains,
opening up a way for capital to follow? If it would, then why not apply
the same thing to raining? Why not
offer the mines to the man who would
offer lhe largest royalty upon the output? "I Bay," ho continued, "that such
a system would be an utter injustice
to the original locator." (Cheers.)
1'nder tbe present Dominion Bystem,
which our friends, the Liberals, would
apply to the timber lands ot this province, the settlement of our lands would
be delayed, our revenues would not be
increased, nor would the interests of,
the province be advanced but rather retarded, while the individual locator, the
man who opens up the country, would
have no incentive to face the wild landa,
to act as the pioneer of capital and
progress. The man who discovered a
valuable bunch of timber, naturally endeavored lo sell It, and If he could
not sell lt at home, he very naturally
sought to sell it abroad;this advertised
the wealth of the province and Induced
the men with caplal to Inks' an Inter
est In the country. (Cheers ) He would
point oul lhat under the McBride ministry, the provincial treasury received
$200,000 ln excess of what would have
been received under thc former rate.
Regarding the mining laws, he said
that thc McBride administration had
thought It best not to Interfere with
Ihem. and speaking personally, he
thoughl the British Columbia mining
laws were, without exception, the besl
In the world; (Cheers.) nnd he was
satisfied they could not be bettered.
But a mining law, however excellent,
withoul stability of governmenl wonld
not suffice io Induce capitalists to Invest in our mines, as with a varying
governmenl, the investor would have
absolutely no guarantee that the milling
Interests of the country would not be

lure. It must be pats-til lo all Blinking
men that tbe wonderful Improvement
which has taken place In our mining
since 1903 Is In n great measure, due to
the fact that a settled form of government had served to Increase the con-
f deno of th�� mon-ved ni"n o' tbe
world Ingeneral. with the result tbal
money for Investment in our minis
was flowlnq inlo the p-nvlnc? rap'dly.
and our mln-rnl r-sources were being
devlop d. wllh a rreat anil lasting
benefit to the people of the province
(Loud cheers.) Nobody for a moment
questioned the fact that British Colutn-
b'n was a country Immensely rich In
natural resources; but. he a'ked. would
natural resources develop themselves?
No. It required capital and industry.
No man will Invest caid'a' in any roun-
try In which ho hns no conMd roce, and
no man can possibly havo any great
nmonnt of confidence In nny country
whi in dors not possess n st inly, stable
ani respo'slbl* form or government,
Such a government the McBride gov-,
ernment hnd been for the past three
and one-half years, and such a government It would continue to be for a very
considerable time longer. (Loud cheers
for McBride and Taylor.)
He would point out to them that the
increase In the output of the mines of
province since 1903 amounted to no
lesB a sum than $8,000,000. (Cheers.)
Mr. Caley. Mr. Taylor continued, had
mentions d the School act, and a certain
section of the Liberals were never tired
of telling how much evil the present
system of education had wrought. Regarding this matter, he would like lo
say that this province was in a far better shape today than it was three years
ago. in 1903 the cost of education
amounted to approximately $500,00,
while the total revenue only amounted
to some $2,000,000. The cost of education was increasing so much more
rapidly than the revenue was that some
change become absolutely necessary lu
older to prevent the cosl of education
absorbing too much of the total revenue. In casting about for some means
of remedying this state of affairs, It
appeared only reasonable that the laws
of the older provinces Bhould be a
guide to us.
The McBride government, however,
went much farther than the older provinces. Kor instance in Ontario lhe government grants only 40 centH per capita, whereas In the town of Arrowhead,
the amount Ib something like $10 per
capita. Surely, neither Mr. Caley, nor
any of his supporters, can hnve auy
lault to find with Ibis. (Cheers.) Mr.
llrown had spoken strongly throughout
the campaign of the McBride government's attitude ln regard to the C. & W.
subs.dy. ln regard to this matter Mr.
Taylor had only to say that, in his
opinion, the government had acted In
a strictly honorable manner. The company had earned the laud by the construction of sections 1 and 3 of the
line, as provided by the Subsidy Act
of 1906. The company had previously
received one-half of the 1,600,000 acres
due, and in 1901 an agreement wa.s arrived ai between the company and the
then government to the effect tbat certain lands in southeast Kootenay
should be granted to make up the balance. Crown grants1 were issued for
these lands, but these grants were cancelled ln 1903, and the lime allowed for
survey having almost expired, It was
Impossible for the company lo comply
with the condition which required the
surveying of the lands to be selected
in substitution for those covered by the
grants cancelled la 1903. This being
in no manner the fault of tbe company,
but on the olher hand, was directly the
fault of the provincial government of
that time, it was decided, rather than
Ui repudiate the contract entered into
by the proceeding administration, to
grant to the company the land lt was
morally entitled to receive. In regard
to the lauds of the B. C. Suuthern,
which the Liberals complained were nol
taxed, Mr. Taylor had it upon the authority of the attorney general, that
ihese lands could not be taxed by lhe
government, but he wished to say most
emphatically, that should it ever be
found possible for the province to legally tax these lands, the said lands
would be taxed as high as possible, ln
regard to taxation, it was a common cry
with the Liberals that the poor man
was heavily taxed while the great railroad corporations were allowed to go
scot free. Mr. Taylor would say, and
would defy any one to refute his statement, that tbe railway taxation had
been increased 50U per cent, by the McBride government, in plain figures aud
from $18 to $'.'0 per mile. Had the
workingman's direct taxation bees increased anything like this?
Regarding the Kaien Island deal, Mr.
Taylor afllrmed that the deal had been
made with the G. T. P. direct, aud that
no Intermediaries had been imported inlo it at any stage. It was, he considered,
[he most profitable deal the government had ever made from a business
point of view. What man would not
very willingly exchange 10,000 acres of
waste laud for 2500 acres of cily property? (Cheers.) lt had been argued
lhat the late minister of Land aud
Works, Hon. Robert Green, had retired
from political life without assigning
any adequate reason to the public for
so doing. Perhaps the Liberal party
was not satisfied with the reasons
given, but there were others. Why did
W. W. B. Mclnnes resign the governorship of the Yukon and a salary of $12.-
000 per year and perquisites? Why did
Henderson resign a judgeship and $4500
for life? Was It pure patriotism? Just
Taney "Wandering Willie" giving up
$K!,000 a year and "perks." for a possible $800 per year and keep himself. Oh,
no! He*B not that kind of a patriot.
(Laughter and cheers.)
Another point Mr. Brown had tried
l.i make, he had said that the past governments, the coalition governments
who had run the province so onear destruction, were all composed, principally of Conservatives. Was this so?
What about McKechnie. Hume, Henderson, Wells, Munro. Smith Curtis and
others, all Liberals, and all prominent
In Dominion and provlnuclnl polities.
The Liberal's cry is all for a change of
government. What do Hay offer that
Is in any way equal to the policy of
the presento administration? A port
folio of Immigration and Labor, state
schools, whicli the people are nol asking for, together wllh a Umber policy
which would tie up thc timber lands
of the province, and prevent settlement
on the land, this is what practically
makes up tho platform of Mr. Macdonald.
Regarding the promised portfolio of
Immigration and Labor, Ibis will at thc
proper time, be attended to fnr more effectively than Mr. Macdonald would bo
likely to do, and Mr. Macdonald's promise lo create such a portfolio is merely
ball, to trail the unwary workingman's
vote.   And he knows it.    (cheers.)
Mr. Brown had said that tho Revelstoke riding paid Into the provincial
treasury some $125.00 Insi year and received In return only $25,000. But he
forgot to mention a few Hems, as for instance, river bank Improvements, and
the building of two bridges across Fish
Creek, from the contingent vote.
And what about the cost of the administration of justice? And the cosl
of the civil service? And aid to hospitals and charities?   And many other
things, which taken together would
equal the expenditure? He conveniently forgets all these. (Cheers.) Time
after time they have raked up scandal
after scandal. Time after time have
royal commissions and Belcet comlttees
been appointed to enqure into these
muck raklngs, and In every Instance
have the slandered parties been honorably cleared of any suspicion of graft
or crooked dealing. Yet they Btill go
on trying to rake up something that
will stick faBt enough to sully the
names ef some of the province's ablest
statesmen in hope that by this means
they may eventually Bneak Into office
and power. These pitiful tactics, continued Mr. Taylor, must, when brought
to light, as they Invariably are, only
succeeded in defeating their own object. He thanked the chairman and
his opponents for their courtesy in permitting him to occupy so much time,
und concluded with a splendid speech
thanking the audience for the majority
they are going to give him on February
2nd. Mr. Taylor was cheered to the
echo again and again, and resumed his
seat amid a scene of enthusiasm.
Mr. Haggen spoke at some length,
saying nothing of Importance. Mr.
Taylor was repeatedly called upon, and
at length, addressed a few more words
to the meeting, after which a vote of
thanks to the chairman was made, and
the meeting closed with long and loud
cheers for Taylor.
It was no Liberal rally, lt had Blm-
ply been a straight Conservative rally
from start to finish.

The Natural Desire
of everyone, in Bending away letters, that they make a good impression. A most important factor to
that end is the paper and envelopes
you use. The best of penmanship,
and expression will not leave the
impression you would like if your
letter is written on poor paper or
enclosed in a poor envelope.
On the other hand, a letter written on paper that in the very feel
and appearance of it conveys a
sense of quality and elegance, will
leave that impression iu llie mind
of the recipient in spite of olher
deficiencies,  and
