Six thousand people heard R. L.
Horden at Truro Saturday, says a special to iht; Winnipeg Telegram. He
made a strong public ownership ad
dress. He said lhat public domain
must be regarded as Including not
only the natural resources and facilities with which Canada has heen so
abundantly endowed, but also the
great national franchises and public
Utilities. These, of right, are the
property of Ihe state, and they must
be administered and exploited for the
public benefit. The Conservative party
maintained this principle in 1904 when
it declared that tbe new transcontinental] railway should be a national
work, owned and controlled hy tho
state. Government ownership or operation is repeatedly challenged because
of Incompetent or corrupt administration. There is no other argument
agalnsl K. but shall all private enterprise be condemned because of insurance frauds or bUSln-888 failure of corporate graft?
We shall not renounce administration of our public lands because of the
-Saskatchewan valley land deals or
grazing lease scandals, nor hand over
the Intercolonial lo a private corporation because Its management has been
iso utterly discredited. The principle
of state ownership is no more to be
condemned for defects or errors of administration than is the general principle of responsible government. The
remedy Is to mend the methods. Today the grossest maladministration is
rife in some public departments of
Canada. Outrageous election scandals
are continuously disclosed. Shall we,
therefore, abandon altogether the system of parliamentary government or
repeal the Hritish North America act'.'
The Conservative party affirms "that
our public domain, In its widest sense,
our great national franchises and our
public utilities, are for the people and
not for the speculator. The policy of
our opponents denies this. When Canada's credit was pledged for the building of a great transcontinental railway
why should not Canada have huilt and
owned the road? Why, at least, should
Canada not have some share In the
profit as well as in the risk. The
watchword of the Conservative party
should he clean elections and merciless punishment of the briber and hal
lot forger, it is not enough to cry
clean elections.
"There aro two other essentials,
namely, to run clean elections and to
punish corruption or fraud hy every
means known to the law, and that law
must be made simpler and easier of
enforcement. Opportunities for delay
nnd petty technicalities which accompany and surround the present law
must be abolished. It is idle that there
should be anv question about the service of a petition upon any person who
has been returned as a member of par-
lit.nT.nt. The filing of a petition in
tlie court and a short public advertisement as notice to the constituency
should be sufficient."

Columbus, O., Sept. 14.���Tribute
was paid today to William MeKlnley,
patriot and president, when the MacNelll monument to Ohio's illustrious
son was unveiled In the presence of a
gathering that included many distinguished visitors from all parts of Ohio
and from other states as well. The
statue Is placed at the west entrance
to the state capitol grounds, where a
vast crowd of people gathered to witness the  unveiling ceremonies.
Mrs. Alice Roosevelt - Longworth,
(lovernor A. L. Harris, Senator John
W. Daniel of Virginia and Justice William K. Day of the United States supreme court, were the principal participants In the ceremonies. The invited guests included many men who
were intimately associated with the
martyred president In public life.
Grand Army veterans from all parts
of Ohio were In attendance. Conspicuous among them were General R. B.
Hi-own of Zanesville, national commander of the G. A. R., and General Joseph W. McKay .national commander
of tbe  Union Veteran legion.
Tho program opened with selections
ol patriotic music .following which Dr.
Washington Gladden delivered the Invocation.     Governor   Harris   delivered
a   brief  address  and   then introduced
Mrs. Longworth, who had the honor of
pulling the cords that loosed the drapery of flags concealing the monument.
The daughter or the  president was
given the signal  and  she seized hold
of the ropes with a quick, determined
grasp    that    bespoke    the    Roosevelt
spirit through and through.   She gave
one pull and then another.   The crowd
stood as one   man, expectant   and intent.    Another quick pull, and within
a  moment the starry folds about the
monument   began   to  shake and  part.
Gradually they dropped away and off
the heroic figure, and all at once they
fell from the monument tn a heap and
the whole work stood revealed. As the
statue came into full view its magnificence was strikingly presented to tbe
people.    A mighty cheer, such ae welcomes the great ship as she slides into the water after the christening, was
heard, and the band struck up "America."
Governor Harris acted as master of
ceremonies, and made a.short speech
in which he referred most eloquently
:o the great man who passed from
earth five years ago today aud to the
artistic beauty of the monument which
11. A. MacNelll has modelled to perpetuate the MeKlnley name Governor Harris presented Mr. MacNelll,
who wis received with applause. It
was at this juncture that Mrs. Long-
worth was given her cue to pull the
ropes that released the draperies covering the monument,

one side is "Peace" and on the other
"Prosperity," representing in bronze
two cardinal principles for which the

The following Is an excerpt from the
speech of Hon. W. Templeman at the
Young Liberals' banquet in Victoria
on Tuesday night:
"I  believe the  whole    province    of
Mritish    Columbia is on    the eve    of
great development .Indeed.    When the
railway  enterprises,  including that of
the  Grand   Trunk   Pacific,   for   which
the  Lllieral  government has been  severely criticised, have been completed,
they  will  assist  in  a tremendous advance for Mritish Columbia.    Speaking
to Mr. Wainwrlght of the Grand Trunk
Pacific some three or four weeks ago
lie told me hlB company was prepared
to have the   railway    constructed   as
purposed  under the    contract    before
1911.    If they do that���mind, I make
no promise.!���that  means    only    five
ytars before the railway  will be running to Prince Rupert.    I am told the
railway company has 12 or 14 survey
parties in  the field in  Mritish Columbia and    it    is expected I  the survey
work will be completed this year, the
pass to be used selected and construction promised at once.     Of   course 1
make no  promises;   I  am not In  the
confidence of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
but waa told  by  Mr.  Wa.nwright the
company would live up to Its contract,
and I expect them to do so.    I have
also in  mind  the construction  of the
Canada Northern road, which will also
shortly be brought to the coast, for It
is hy no means the Intention of  th'.-.
company to make its terminus at Edmonton.    These two continental lines
are building from ocean to ocean, and
will  have the    necessary    subsidiary
lines.    1 believe the Grand Trunk Pacific will never stay in the north, but
will build to   come    Into   Vancouver,
and with all these railways and the influx of settlers I  feel sure    we    will
have very prosperous times In British
Columbia within the next five or six
"I  have noticed  in the newspapers
that some fruit growers of the interior
have started agitation to remove the
head   tax   on   Chinese   coming   Into
British Columbia.    I  don't know how
you young Liberals look at this thing,
but think no  Liberal  should  join  in
any movement of the kind.    1 know
the long struggle there was to put the
head tax on Chinese.   I am not going
to say there Ib not a demand for labor
in  British  Columbia.    There is a demand ail through  the  Bast also, and
they're not looking for Chinese labor,
but for white men from Europe.    We
should  look  to  my   friend,  Hon.   Mr.
Scott, minister of Immigration, to send
ub the unemployed and poor laborers
of  England,   Scotland  or  other  countries of Europe.    There are plenty of
them there.    If we    want    labor    we
should get white labor.    I never was
a great anti-Chinese    man;    I take a
broader view.    I  believe in the open
door policy, but I would have a sentinel at the  door to admit only  those
who would become In the fullest term
citizens of Canada.
"I hope there are no reporters here,
for my views may not be In keeping
with those of the minister of immigration.    (Laughter.)
"I would confine my policy to people  who  nre  going  to  be  Canadians.
We don't want communities by themselves, nor want    those    who    retain
their home customs.    If Chinese, Japanese,    Doukhobors    or    others    will
not become citizens I would put some
impediment in the way, and  make It
difficult for them to enter thiB Canada
of ours.   If we look to the future, and
know what this Canada will be In 10
or 20  years hence,  we will  feel  that
thosi?  who come into Canada will be
those who come to full citizenship and
the   responsibilities   of   citizenship.     I
will  not say  that we do not need a
servile class;  some say we do.   I believe, though, we can get white men
lo  work in  canneries and  other  employments ,and feel that It Is the true
policy to have them do so.    We may
go slower, we may not develop ae fast.
Ot fill up   lhe    North    as    fast,   but
wouldn't It be better to give place to
our own race or to the northern races

"These rumors are false. The
Bank of France has refused absolutely on every occasion to allow gold to

France, owing to the rise ln the rate

kind. The object of the legislation, he
said .was almost exclusively the securing of a day of rest for all laborers, so fixed that no employer could
Interfere with it.
He quoted the examples of France
and olher countries to show that a
li-gul Sunday did not necessarily imply religious unanimity.
He claimed that the act passed as
the result of the efforts of the alliance
secured the wished for day of rest
without unnecessarily interfering with
the liberties of anv.

Letter Rests in Fire Alarm Box Until
Found by Visitor.
A few daya ago Alderman Nell B.
Mclnnes ot Regina was in Nelson on
a visit Having been city general Inspector for some years he could not
refrain from observing things ln Nelson. His activity revealed at least one
peculiar fact.
He opened the fire alarm box at the
oorner of Kooteuay and Baker streets
and found a stamped letter addressed
to an Itallun resident of Winnipeg.
Two years ago an alarm was turned
in from that box. The brigade turned
out and found no fire, nor any other
cause of the alarm.
It seems likely that some guileless
Italian mlBtook the box for a lettr ��� receptacle, accidentally gave an alarm,
and disappeared to save trouble.
The long-delayed letter was mailed
by Chief Deasy, to whom Mr. M.luucs
handed It.

The visit yesterday, of the Spokane
chamber of commerce, was an importanl one in several respects. Arriving
early in the morning as they did, with
flaring advertisements of the Spokane
annual lair, ami With streaming
badges announcing who they were and
what they came for, they took the city
by mild storm. To Canadians the tin
pan multicolored show cards were
somewhat of an Innovation, especially
tn the way they were worn.like so
many wooden medals, but it required
only a few minutes association with
the members of the party to discover
that they themselves looked on that
feature of their advent as oue of thi
superfluities and effervescent methods
of adding zest to a foreign visit.
The brevity of their stay in Nelson
was in some respects to be regretted,
but aa Ihey saw the city in the best
possible view, that from the water,
both in the early morning and the
shades of evening, the Impression
created was perhaps more favorable
than if they hot] spent the whole day
Jn loafing about ihe slrec'ts, In their
walk from the mountain station they
passed some of the beautiful gardens
and well kept laws and their expressions of admiration wen* -gratifying to
the ear.
During the entire trip to ami from
Kaslo the members of the party showed how thoroughly the American can
relax when he resolves to throw off the
cares of business. For the most of the
party lhe outing was an "outing" pure
and simple, and right properly did they
make it such.
The party was representative of tho
Various business interests of the city
of Spokane and there were few accompanying itie excursion who have
not some vital interest in the commercial affairs of lhat city. And best of
all, there were among the party those
who know full well how io combine
with a pleasure excursion the observant attention ttt future busness possibilities which, to some men, are a
part of the zest of an excursion. Tin*
several citizens of .Nelson who accompanied the party to Kaslo were kept
busy answering questions, and some of
these showed an alertness and a business capacity that suggest the value of
such a visit, not only to the visitor,
but to the place visited.
It will be but stating the truth to say
that the visit of tlie party to the Kootenays has been a marvellous revelation. Throughout the Boundary and
along the lake, the developments that
have taken place, with the still undeveloped possibilities, both in horticulture and mineral resources, were like
a peep into a new world, and loud
were their expressions of wonder at
the wealth of the country.
���   ���   ���
In polities, while the chamber of
commerce Is divided, as is of course
every body of business men, there was
an undisguised admlralion for the ad
ministration of President Roosevelt.
The strong character of the chief executive of the i'nited States government seems lo have created n tendency, especially in the west, to break
away from party lines and follow the
man. who In his politic:.! initiative and
execution, does the work which his
office calls for. it was generally conceded that Mr. Roosevelt i.s the man
for the limes and fUso unfeignedly believed that if he can Ite persuaded to
allow his name to be placed in nomination for the next term, the I'nited
States has not today p man who can
win against him. At the same time we
gathered thai the general feeling is,
since Mr. Roosevelt's administration
has been so strenuous, and since he
has been so firm tn his opposition to
many legislative and administrative
abuses, it might be wiser for him to
retire for a term so that popular sentiment may have time to catch up with
the advanced positions which he has
The view was generally held by
members of the party, that in the
event of Mr. Roosevelt declining re-
nomlnatlon, Mr. Bryan's chances are
of the best. Undisguised admiration
for Hryan us a man and for his strong
Utterances were certainly the sentiments of the politicians of the party
In their discussion of Canadian affairs the party were much given to
admiring the judicial system which
prevails in Canada and which removes,
at least in intent, all political or partizan feelings from the mind of a
judge. The system of promotion to
the judiciary which is in vogue in
Canada was also much praised. We
have every reason to believe that it
was not merely the exigencies of the
moment which made President Ham���
i!i replying to the toast to the visitors,
say repeatedly that the line which separates us is only an imaginary one, aud
while in the matter of national ideals
we may differ somewhat, we have afler
all that deep seated friendship which
will evolve into the solidarity of an
Anglo-Saxon race dominating the
American continent.
The further expression of President
Ham, that the few members of Hie
S;iokane chamber of commerce who
were visitors to Kootenay this year
will act as a leaven with the entire
membership, was doubtless sincere,
and we ibink it was no idle promise
thai he made on their behalf lhat next
year and in future years this paradise
of thi' province should receive from
the chamber, ihe attention which ii so
manifestly deserves

for some time, so the steamer had to

Anniversary   Recalls   Assassination   of
Late  President   McKinley.
Washington, n. c. Sept H.���President Roosevelt, who is enjoying the
closing days of his summer vacation
at Oyster Ray, today begins his sixth
year as chief executive of the nation,
it was on September 14, 1901, that Mr.
Roosevelt took tlie oath of office. On
the preceding day the attention of the
whole world was centered on Milburn
house at Huffalo, from which bulletins
were issued in the afternoon announcing that President McKinley -was sinking. Vice President Roosevelt who.
like the rest of the public, had been
led to believe by the physicians' re-
porta earlier In !ti�� \v.iek that the
president would recover, had gone on
a trip In the New England mountains.
When he received word that their had
been a turn for the worse tn the president's condition he hurried to Huffalo
and arrived just before the end came.
In the middle of the afternoon, shortly after the martyred president had
answered the final summons. President Roosevelt was sworn into office
by Secretary of State Day.

Parliament Should Demand  Investigation of Broken Promises.
The Vancouver Province deals editorially with the broken promises of
J. J. Hill and his lobbyists respecting
construction of the V. V. ai E. railway
and as the situation Is one affecting
the whole of the Interior, we reproduce
the article In part:
It will be remembered that when
the concessions which the president ol
Ihe Great Norlhern sought came before the railway commission tor consideration, a strong feeling was manifested against granting Mr. Hill privileges which would allow hlm to draiu
the wealili or the Siniilkumeen district
to the cities of the state of VVashlng-
issu. This, 11 was urged, was his real
object, unsl the past history of his enterprises in Hritish Columbia supported the contention lhat such was the
design of his bill, which was then before parliament. This was at the session before last. It will not, be forgotten that the bill was In charge of Mr.
Duncan Uaiss, the member for Yale-
Carlboo, and that that gentleman,
ably r.eslsted by Mr. W. A. (lalllher,
member for Kootenay, and our own
reineselllnllve, Mr. K. G. Maciibersoli,
gave personal assurances of the most
solemn and explicit nature lhat *>lr.
HIII would with all due speed build
his railway from the llrlllsh Columbia
coast through the Sliullkauieen country, and thus give It direct connection
Willi New Westminster amd Vancouver. At lhe oillslile, Mr. Duncan Koss
staled, the line would be built to the
roast In eighteen months or two years,
aud he pleaded with so much pathos
for the I'imiiiill tee's approval ot the
bill that he left lhe Impression on his
hearers thai he was a very earnest It
not an able champion of the Great
Noi.hern Hallway company. The bill
was reported by a narrow majority
and was passed by the house. Subse-
spiently Hon. Wm. Templeman, keeping
1111 the farce of honest intentions
which had Imposed am the committee,
publicly stated that he had the
promise ot President Hill that the 100
miles of the line to be built weBt
toward Princeton would be completed
toward the end of the year.
This was the situation when parliament was prorogued last year. The
construction of the V., V. & E. was to
be rushed through without delay, and
the coast cities of British Columbia
were to be brought Into new and direct relationship with the southern
portion of the interior as far as the
Boundary district. Had the representations thus made by Mr. Hill been
carried out the road would be approaching completion and a large additional district would be brought un-
dur tribute to this city, commercially.
What are tHe facts, however? Up to
date the total mileage under construction lu Hritish Columbia does not exceed .9 miles, and even this is only
partially completed. It is estimated
that if this rale of progress Ib maintained il will be between 12 and 15
years before the line is an established
Hut this is not all. ll will be observed that although Mr. Hill is not
pressing the construction of the V., V.
it E., he is rushing to completion
links Intended 10 connect Important
points in the Similkanieeu with his
main line souih of the boundary- It
is apparent that before long the mad
which We are expeciing to connect tne
Similkanieeu With tin- coast has reached the Hope mountains, the branch
lines from lhe state of Washinglou
will be operating, and the I'nited
Stntes cities will huve captured the
trade of that Canadian mining district.
This is exactly what ��J said would
happen, and the merchant- of Vancouver must realize it by this time, as
the people of the interior realize it.
In viow of Ihis breach of tat-- on the
pari or Mr. Hill, how are we to regard
the assurances given before the railway commitlee, nnd in Interviews to
the press by Mr. Duncan Ross. Mr. VV.
A. QalUher, Hon. Wm, Templeman and
Mr. it. 11. Macpherson, that Mr. 11111
would oarry out his pledges lo build
the road within n definite period? Did
Ihese genllenien believe for a moment
lhal Mr Hill would fulfill lhe promises which Ihey said he had given, and
for which they made themselves responsible? Is It not evident that these
gentlemen were for some reasons of
their own, reasons of course thnt may.
when revealed, commend themselves
to public approval, concerned in obtaining for Mr. Hill lhe concessions
he desired and were not over-scrupulous regarding the arguments they
employed to convince parliament nnd
tho pubtlo thnl the measure wns n desirable one? Whnt explanation or excuse can they now offer for Mr. Hill's
falluro to redeem his promises?"
dist churches. Arriving at one of these
places, they found it ln the hands of a
religious meeting, having turned up in
their four-horse wags snn too soon, and
when they entered and took their sets
near th�� door they found the walls had
not been cleared of the maps and
blackboards. The preacher had Tor
Borne time been standing with his back
to a small slate hanging to the wall
behind the platform, but In the excitement of am extra emphatic moment of
the sermon he strode from his place,
and revealed to all eyes the following
remains of an afternoon lesson for the
"ls It an ox or an ass?
It is an ass.
Do we hear the ass bray?
Yes; we do hear the aeB bray.
Go on, old ass. go on and bray!"
When the congregation had departed
from the schoolroom, and the John-
son-McItaye audience took possession
of the seats, the Canadian humorist
discovered It to be no easy matter to
create laughter as hearty as that which
had shaken Ihe crazy roof a few minutes  before."
