Augusta, Mo., Jan. 12.���Official figures show that skungs annually bring
this state between $135,000 and $150,-
000, double the revenue from U>< honey
making Industry. Nearly 25,000 gallons
of skunk oil, which Is said lo havo curative properties, are produced annually In Maine. The price Is $21 a gallon.
One skunk Is supposed to produce a
quart of oil. Skunk skins are also valuable. In New York and Pennsylvania
there are skunk farms, where light colored animals are raised for breeding
purposes and eventually killed for their

Preparations  Everywhere  for  Expanded Activity In Spring���Stock Market Recovering.
The week In mining circles haa been
marked by a continuance of preparations for extended work In the spring.
Such preparations are general throughout the Slocan, Ymir, Alnsworth and
Lardeau, and In the immediate vicinity
of Nelson.
Tho operation of the Queen Victoria
mines has led to the staking of all the
land adjoining, on some of which Indications of copper have already been
The stock market for the past week
has shown a great increase over the
previous two weeks' business, owing to
conditions once more becoming normal.
While the stock of the metal mines of
this country is In but little demand on
Eastern exchanges the coal stocks are
favorites there and are dealt In quite
extensively. In fact the stocks of the
coal companies both of the Nicola and
Crow'B Nest Pass are considered better
securities with leaa risks, than any
other class of shares on the market.
Dominion Copper reached a higher
figure about the middle of last week
than It has heretofore attained, but
sold back again toward the close and
In now standing a t the quotation of
about the close of last week. It is rumored that the recent advance was due
to rumors of an amalgamation between
the Dominion and B. C. Copper companies, the confirmation of which cannot
be learned. B. C. Copper also advanced
several points upon this rumor becoming current. ,
Diamond Vale Coal gained several
points after the close of Uie holiday
season, and is expected will still further
advance In the near future, as the company have issued statements which are
altogether very favorable. Western
Oil Consolidated is another stock In
which Interest is being taken and a
slight rise, with higher asked prlceB,
is noticeable. International Coal continues very steady, but at low quotations. Nicola Valley Coal & Coke has
not become bo well known as the older
stocks, but Is causing a great many
Inquiries, and it is thought will be In
great demand within a few mouths.
Tel-Kwa mines remained steady with a
number of shares dealt In at a very
good price. La Plata MlneB changed

Cheered fo the Echo Repeatedly by Crowded House-Telling Speech by W. J.
Bowser-All Local Candidates Acquit Themselves Well and Earn Applause
In Bplte of wild weather last night
the opera house was filled above and
below to hear Premier McBride, W. J.
Bowser and the three local candidates.
The visitors were met at the Btatlon
by the city band and a committee and
driven to the Strathcona and then to
the opera house.
The meeting was orderly, and on the
whole, fair and good natured to all
speakers, but undoubtedly the great majority was Conservative.
Promptly at 8:30 R. S. Lennie, president of the Conservative Club, called
the meeting to order. He said lhat ln
order to give plenty of time to the
speakers he would refrain from speaking ait length. He told the audience
what the programme of the evening
would be, and then invited Dr. Hall and
Frank Phillips to the platform, an invitation which both accepted amid general applause.
| J. A. Kirkpatrick
J. A. Kirkpatrick, the Conservative
candidate, received an ovation on rising. He referred to the great Improvement In the province, Industrially and
financially during the last three years,
and pointed as a proof to the sale on
good terms of two Issues of Nelson city
debtentures after several years of failure. 'He declared his loyal adherence
to Conservative principles aud the Conservative leader, and asked for support
on February 2nd.
Frank Phillips
Frank Phillips declared that he had
no alliance with either party. He declared that the Socialists in the legislature had supported Premier McBride
as the less of the two evils. He resented the charge that they received
a price, and called upon Premier McBride as witness.
Referring to J. A. Mcdonald's "red
flag of anarchy," he said: "I never saw
the class that Macdonald belongs to defend any flag."
He added: "Mr. Macdonald told you
that the Conservative policy was bad.
He forgot to tell you that he has no
policy at all."
Mr. Phillips referred to the legislation Introduced by Socialists, praising
It. On the question of the smelter
eight hour law he charged that Mr. Macdonald had to get permission from the
corporation that employs him to vote
for the law.
He added: "I give your premier
credit of being true to his principles
and voting against It.   He Is a man."
Mr. McPhllllps charged both parties
with suppressing a meat scandal arising out of events in the Boundary.
He declared himself in favor of women's franchise, and that he would
work for It.
"I expect to be elected on February
2nd, declared Frank as he llinilied his
speech amid loud applause, chiefly from
Ihe gallery.
W. J. Bowser
The chairman then Introduced W. J.
Bowser, M.L. A., K. C.,as one of Vancouver's "solid  five,"   and   a fighting
member of the house.
Mr. Bowser was well received. He
referred playfully to the vagaries of
tho climate which had given colds to
the premier and himself.
He congratulated Nelson on her
three candidates, any one of whom, he
said, would be a highly creditable representative.
He Bald: "We are not here mailing
rosy promises on the evo of election,
of roadB trails and bridges. We aro
here lo give an account of our Stewardship, to tell you what we have done
and what wo Bhall continue to do."
Apologising for telling nn old slory
Mr. Bowser went over In detail the nc-
count of tho province on the accession of tho McBride government, the
necessity for painful and unpopular
economy, the urgent need of Increased
revenues, and the results achieved.
He told of the fierce opposition by all
railway corporations to the Increase of
tnxatlon on their roads, especially from
the C. P. R. whom Ihey were bo persistently accused of favoring.
Ho referred with pride to the two
surpluses Bhown by the first Conservative government, tho only Burplusos In
17 years.
He told of numerous unpopular
economies, effected, especially In the
civil service. He declared that the necessity for such extremo economy no
longer existed nnd that an attempt
might now bo tiindej to ease tho burden
of taxation, and afford moro for public
works required to develop the province.
He aBsured tho audience that as a result of this tour he was convinced thnt
the Liberals hnd no real hope of victory.
Referring to J. A. Macdonald's article In his manifesto dealing with the
Sehnnl Aot, he charged Mr. Macdonald
with flagrant Insincerity In promising
to destroy the school ac', and throwing
all schools back as a burden on the
provincial treasury. He showed that
the present school system was modelled
on that of New Brunsw'tk, which has
been widely copied, and that the direct
burden on the people tn British Columbia Is even now far less than ln any
other province.
He referred briefly to the Uberal record in the Dominion, charging the Liberals with stealing wholesale the policy
of their predecessors.
Addressing himself especially to the
working men be exposed the hypocrisy
of J. A. Macdonald ln promising labor
and Immigration legislation, subjects
over which provinces bave no control,
and also In endorsing the Dominion government which has twice disallowed the
provincial enactment of the Natal act
against Oriental immigration.
He told of the government's successful stand against tbe claim of tbe
Orientals, who were naturalised, to
vote, a stand which was disapproved
by tha Dominion government, which
had aaked for its amendment. He
asked Dr. Hall to justify such conduct
If he could. ,
He replied briefly to the charge of
a Socialist alliance. He challanged
anyone to name a single statute passed
since 1903 owing to Socialist influences.
He sl ated that W. W. B. Mclnnes had
never denied the charge that he had applied for, and been refused, admission
into a Socialist lodge. Mr, Bowser
quoted Smith Curtis' opinion of Mclnnes, whom he described as "worse
than Martin, conniving at steals, and
absolutely unworthy of confidence, unscrupulous and impossible."
A few Liberals ln tbe gallery resented Mr. Bowser'B remarks but he continued amid the applause of the majority.
He said: "If you refuse to hear discussion ol Mclnnes, you admit that his
record Is too rotten to bear criticism."
He then went over Mclnnes record���
his wild abuse of "Coal baron " James
Dunsmuir, and his support of htm lm-
meadlatelyp after. He referred to Mclnnes wanderings In search of a Beat
Mr. Bowser aaked: "If you know
Billy Mclnnes, how do you account for
his giving up (12,000 a year and pickings, to accept "1800."
He went on: "The Grand Trunk Pacific, the creature of the Laurler government, has a finger fn the pie." He
told of the promise ���never kept���
that construction would begin simultaneously at the east and'west coasts,
and the attempt made to "hold up" the
McBride government with threats of
non-fulfillment, and the company's attempt now to replace the McBride government with one more pliant.
There followed'a short reference to
the "better terms" question and the
anxiety of the Dominion government to
have Mr. McBrlde's stand repudiated by
the people of the province.
Mr. Bowser then resumed his seat
amid loud and prolonged cheering.
Dr. Hall
Dr. Hall was received with applause.
He referred wittily to Mr. Bowser'B remarks on the weather, and assured him
of a worse blizzard on February 2nd.
He complained of the long delay ln
the beginning of the new court house.
He declined to answer Mr. Bowser's
questions on the plea that he belonged
to a non-ta'lklng profession.
Dr. Hall's reference to the records
of the house brought Btnlles to the
faces of the premier and Mr. Bowser.
Dr. Hall resurrected the complaint
about the change of election date tn
1903, the "ballot box" charge against
W. R. Ross In Fernie, the Columbia ft
Western subsidy, continuation act, the
election amendment act, and claimed
1o hnve proved a Conservative-Socialist
alliance, and denounced J. II- Hawthornthwaite for condemning chnrchos.
He also referred to what he considered
bad methodB In road building; then
back lo the Columbia ft Western land
auhsldy. He usked that In future he
bo given an hour instead of half an
hour. Ho then concluded with a funny
story, at which several laughed.
The  Premier
The Hon. Richard McBride was Introduced by the chairman and three
cheers were heartily given.
Mr. McBrldo thanked the audience
nnd declared his pleasure ln having
heard tho addresses of llie three local
candidates. He was glad that In Nelson, as throughout the province, thc
campaign was being conducted without
He roturned Dr. Hall's quip by saying
ho heard that lhe blizzand In question
was nothing to Ihe frost of the Thursday evening proceedings.
Ho reproached Dr. Hall for having
wasted half an hour with worn out
fallacies. He had heard them for years
all over the province.    ,
A gallery voice���"Must be something
In it."
The premier���"So much that every
hye-electton haa resulted In a government victory,"
Ho instanced tho election In Alberni
an a caso of attempted Interference by
the Ottawa machine with the affairs
of the province.
As a sample ot the landslide from
the Liberal ranks he told of the change
in Columbia riding, from an unopposed
election for W. C. Wells ln 1903, to the
certainty of Mr. Parsons' return on
February 2nd.
Mr. McBride then told ot the history
of British Columbia administrations,
which be said were fast deteriorating
to South American conditions. Without
going into details already known to
many, he compared the change effected
between 1993 and 1907, and asked:
"Are you going to deal fairly with
us? We have restored the province to
prosperity. Are you going to hand it
over to fair-weather politicians, who
fled In the hard times and come back
now to enjoy those surplusses?"
Among the fair-weather politicians
were named W. W. B. Mclnnes, Smith
Curtis and J. Fred Hume.
J. Fred ���"I'll be with you."
The premier���"I recognize the voice
and the face, but the smile Is too
broad.   I know he is not serious."
Several other interrupters were Invited to stand and make their remarks
He assured Dr. Hall that he bad made
no startling discovery at Creston, there
were many roads badly needed, but
the necessity for economy was first
and greatest. The government had performed faithfully two decidedly unpleas-
and and unpopular tasks���reducing public expenditures and Increasing taxes.
He said the new tasxaton Imd been
levied upon railway and other corporations, not from workingmen or small
Several In the audience disputed this
statement but were silent when repeatedly invited to stand and state their
The premier then dealt with the tlm-
aber policy of the government, and ridiculed the statement that his Improvement was due to the growth of the
Northwest. He quoted the statements
of B. E. Walker, D. R. Wllkle, and otber
experts, to the effect that consistent
and efficient administration by the
provincial government had produced
the change.
The premier then unfolded a large
map of the Kaien Island terminal site.
He told the terms of the contract. The
province has received 110,000, returns
one fourth of the site, to be surveyed
at the expense of the railway company,
reserves surrounding the whole of it,
all mineral rights, the water fronts, and
revislonary Interests In adjacent lands.
"But," added the premier, "the Liberals don't criticise the bargain. They
were looking for scandal and dirt; and
In suite of six weeks' searching, they
foun I none. Oo to the government office, get a copy "of all the evidence,
read It from cover to cover, and then
He asked Dr. Hall why he didn't
save some of his indignation for the
North Atlantic Trading company.
Turning to the land subsidy question
he said, "I wish Fred Hume would
come down from the gallery and tell
you about this. He was ln the cabinet
that gave the grant. He was willing to
pay the railway company right to Midway then. So far I. have only paid
them for aa tar Christina lake. Fred
can square himself now tn Ymir. Still
Fred's a good fellow."
Mr. McBride explained that_ successive governments bad been as much
responsible as the C. P. R. for delays.
He had resisted their claim where he
thought It a tittle excesslce, but paid
what tbe company had honestly earned.
"If that was wrong, turn me out."
Turning to tho Midway ft Vernon
grant queBtion, he said he had always
sought to discourage charter-mongerlng
and encourage actual construction. Ho
read a letter, forwarded to hlm by
James J. Hill, from the holders of the
Midway & Vernon charter offering to
sell lands and caah subsidies they expected to get from the government. The
letter was accompanied by a copy of
Mr. Hill's reply refusing to consider It.
"That," said Mr. McBride, "ls the way
the C. P. R. induced me to stop the
building of the Midway* ft Vernon."
He then read tbe demands of tbe
Grand Trunk Pacific for right of way,
15,000 acres a mile, the right to take
timber and stone and exemption on
everything for 30 years. He said, "I refused to consider it. Ask your Liberal
candidate hla opinion of that, and of the
Dominion government which rcfusod
to require the beginning of construction
at the coast and a provision against
Oriental labor."
On the "better terms" conference���
"I found all the other premiers agreed
on a system that Ignored onr cxceptloa-
al claims. We argued fora a week on
that point alone, and It was not until
we were practically ordered to conclude, and a report was given out that
I withdrew. What did I achieve? Not
only the Dominion but each of the other
provinces admit our permanent Bpeclal
claims, and we'll get them yot.
"I was not on a political mission. I
had no Bpeclal relations wl'h tho Conservative premiers, Mr. Whitney and
Mr. Roblin. But as a matter of tact,
It was not Mr. Whitney but Mr. Twee-
die, ot New Brunswick, who made tho
suggestion tbat I dismissed. I was not
an obatructer; I suggested arbitration
to fix as fair amount. That was refused.
The next debate on the subject will
take place ln London."
After a few further words of general
greeting the premier resumed his seat
am'd loud and prolonged applause.
Cheers were given for the King, tbe
premier and John A. Kirkpatrick,

Sketch of Three Candidates ��� Special
Meeting of Providence Shareholders Called.
(Special to The Dally Canadian)
Greenwood, Jan. 11.���An ettraordl-
nary general meeting ot the Providence
Mining company was held here Thursday evening, at which most of the outstanding stock of the company waB represented.
The meeting decided to Increase the
capitalization of the company from
(200,000 to 12,000,000. The purpose of
the increase has not been made public, and whether or not lt ls the Intention of the management to purchase
other properties, of which there are
several which the company, lt would
seem, ought to have, while obtainable
at a reasonable price, Is not announced.
The stock of the Providence bas hitherto commanded a big price, but for
years there has not been any for sale.
The stock Is mostly ln the hands of
Chicago people, the local holdings not
being sufficiently large to have much
Influence at the board.
The mine ls tally well developed and
equipped, all paid for out of ore proceeds. Proven to a depth of 600 feet
by a shaft, the last 200 feet of which
ls all ln ore, the property today ls considered one of the most promising in
the district and with effective management ought to be a steads dividend
Interest in election affairs is on the
increase. Things are warming up. The
three candidates In the field are making vigorous campaigns, and whichever
man ls elected the riding will have most
respectable representation. The electorate has been considerably changed
since last election and there Ib quite a
large unknown element to be considered. ,
Quite a number of those on the lists
at the last election have moved from
the riding and a large number of new
names hav ebeen added. Bach candidate claims his election sure, and each
party Ib confident of victory.
The Liberal candidate is the present
mayor, a man of large property Inter*
estsests and one who stands well ln
the community for which he has always
been a zealous worker. Personally
known to most of the people, he Ib not
leaving his campaign entirely to his
rommltteo, but Ib giving his candidature his time and attention, and ls
making a close canvass.
The Socialist candidate is a most
worthy and estimable young man, but
unused to political methols. He is being assisted ln his public meetings by
a Socialist speaker from the United
States. He win doubtless poll bis party's strength but Is not likely to make
converts from without. He Is a Socialist from conviction and tho cause he
espouses Is no expedient for his purpose.
The Conservative candidate Is making a worthy struggle for legislative
honors. Identified with large business
enterprises, he stands well among the
business men as well as among the laboring mon, with whom he has had relations. He Is confident of success and
his calculations sppear to be well
based. He ls not confining himself to
his own party but Is pushing his plea
for support among all classes and all
parties, and report has It. is plclnklng
quite a number of supporters out of
tho other folds. Some of these are not
saying much, but poolllng day will" find
them voting for the return of the first
business government British Columbia
lins had for many years. There seems
llttlo doubt nt this distance but that
February 3 will find Greenwood In line
with tho Connervatlve party.

Report of Provincial  *_*_erakgi��t
Shorn Splendid Gains -8. F.
Green Still in the Fight.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Victoria, Jan. 11.���R. F. Green returned from a tour of the mainland this
morning and reports that at all points
visited he found evidences that the Mo-
Bride government would be sustained
by a handsome majority on February
2nd. s^j
At all Island points the outlook ls
splendid for the Conservative party.

Considerable criticism has been
aimed at the financial policy of the
present government by opposition
speakers and press. Discussing this today, Hon. R. G. Tatlow, minister of finance, emphacized what he haa stated
In several recent addresses. He pointed
out that lt must be generally acknowledged that a loan was necessary when
Premier McBride took control because
of the deplorable conditions then prevailing, but the improvement since that
time haa been so marked, prosperity
waa so general that It wm possible to
reduce the taxation. A year ago or
thereabouts the personal property tax
waa cut from one to two-thirds of one
per cent and It waa the Intention to
make a simlllar reduction ln the real
property tax. Other changes in the assessment act were contemplated by the
One ot the most concluK.-e proofs
of the prosperity or the r-<ntry waa
contained In a statement I ->m W. A.
Robertson, the provincial mineralogist,
published several days ago. He said
tbat British Columbia had produced 13
per cent more mineral In 1908 than in
190S. Supplementing this, he gave statistics- showing tbat the revenue de
rived trom that source this year was
almost $4,000,000 in excess ot the Income tor 1906. These gratifying figures
were quoted by Hon. H. G. Tatlow as
an Illustration of the improvement ln
general conditions during the laat two
years. Not only Is ths advance taken
as such an Indication, but It is accepted as a demonstration of tbe fact
that outside capitalists are gaining confidence in the stability of the government of the province and its future
prosperity. While formely those having
money to Invest hesitated to come to
the West, now they are eager to obtain
an opportunity to assist ln tbe exploitation of some of British Columbia's
rich and varied natural resources.
Retract or Fight,
Buda Pest, Jan. 12.���Minister ot Justice Polonyl, has sent his seconds, Secretary of State Bolgar and Baron Kaas,
the author, to Herr Halmos, ex-burgomaster of Buda Pest, to demand retraction of the charge publicly made by
Halmos that Polonyl had abused bis
position ln order to obtain advantages
toi a personal friend. The minister
considers himself to have been insulted, and therefore demands a retraction
and an apology. Should Halmos refuse
to give the minister satisfaction the
letter's seconds are instructed to make
arrangements with Halmos' seconds for
a duel.

for Che phrase���but he had no goods to
aattwtr. His attempts to refer to pob-
__- questions proved that his knowledge
was all d rived from tbe di-t rted ��� _���-
coun's of J. A. Macdonald and The Liberal press. But the coarse and feeble
gaJJerv plav a; tbe end put his friends
lo shame. A Nelson audience Is not
composed wholly or mainly of fools. Dr.
Hall kept hi= feet for half an hour by
dint of repetition and patient searching
of his pocket*, for BOtea which consumed far more than half that time
Long before the chairman came io his
relief his friends were sorry for him
His protest then that h<- had more to
say if given time WM the thinnest thing
ever anempted on a Nelson platform.
Lr Had Is a good citizen and personally a fine fellow, but as a public
speaker he has only succeeded in alarming his friends by his apparent unconsciousness of failure.
Frank Phillips earned al) the applause he received last night and he
received his share. He presented his
case manfully and sincerely; he slandered no one; he gave credit where it
was due. and had the modesty and the
good sense to take his seat when he
had rie.'iv.red his message. He did not
in.uit the audience by torturing out his
time limit and pretending that he had
more to say. And���he didn't tell a
funny story.
If anything further were needed to
convin-'-e the Liberal .audi-late and his
friends of the _U)p��Ie_*oea_ of the cause
for which they are striving In British
Columbia, it "sure and certain" was
furnished at the public meeting in the
opera house last night. The clear, forcible manner in which the premier and
his able lieutenant presented the case
for the government must have been
convincing to all fair-minded men. and
as gall and wormwood to the hidebound
Liberal* present, who can see no good
in the political acts of their opponents.
The presentation of his case by the
Liberal candidate was in line with that
of all the opposition speakers in the
present campaign���destructive rather
than constructive. The doctor, whether
by design or otherwise, has been forced
into an untenable position in this campaign and is to be pitied more than
condemned. In his remarks lasi night
he certainly gave no evidence of his
own doubt as to (he advisability o\\ engaging in the contest, and this expressed doubt will be fully verified
when the ballots are counted on the
night of February 2.

If there were any doubts In the minds
of any in Nelson as to what the result
would be In Nelson on the night of
February 2. ]f.it night's meeting will
certainly have dispelled It. The night
was the rotmhest and most unpl- asant
not only this winter, but for many
rears, but the audience was thrice as
numerous as the one that turn* d out.
on a comparatively pleasant night���
Thursday, the 8rd���to hear J. A. Macdonald. But the dlff* rence in attendance was triHIng compared with the
difference In spirit, The audience felt
that they were listening to a Man. not
to & pror-* .unal critic who must attack
everything Conservative merely because
I' is Conservative. And the audience
c i_a-.nl>' felt and r_*ponde_ to the dif-
fereoce between the Ice-cold, tedlom
chop-lo'/ic arguments of the analytical
Macdonald, and the fair, fiank Otter
atices of Premier MoBrlde, lull ot buoyant, confident Western life, whose sincerity expresses its .If in every tone.
But the matter of the premier's address
was such that It would have tften worth
hearing even from .1. A Macdonald.
Much, It ls true, was absolutely already known, at least in outline, to the
people of Nelson���the story of tho task
of government and administration as It
was when accepted by Mr. Mcllrlrle,
th" harrowing degree of economy that
had to be practise., by dismissal of
faithful and competent H"rvants and
overworking of those retained, the delay of needed public works, the inert ase of taxt-s forced on the government by the huge accumulation of deficit during 17 years of borrowing and
balances of expenditure over revenue.
But a great part of Mr. McBrlde's mat
ter was new. The details of hlsfight
for better term- and the correction of
Mr. Macdoua'd's guess about Premier
Whitney, which has been copied by all
'he Liberal pres-.���were of great interest to the audience. But perhaps the
pom's in his speech which struck
hardest���they certainly silenced the little group of prof* ssfoual disturbers in
the gallery, were the exposure of the
Midway ���*_; V* rnon charter-mongering,
'h.* naked truth about the Kaien island
grant, and the arrogant demands of the
Grand Trunk Pa'-1 fie as the price of
beginning construction at the coast���
in spite of Hon. \V. Templ'-man's reiterated assurance that they were bound
to do so. The premier's speech was
exactly like his policy and his whole
public career���it was frank, straightforward and courageous.
W. S. Bowser, K. C, sustained his
reputation as a fighting orator. His
elucidation of (he Kaien Island slander,
the Columbia & Western land grant,
the better terms question and other
points at Issue was clear and consistent, and drew from Ur. Hall the sad
admission that he was not in a position
to deal with them. The knot of Liberal
hecklers who wanted to ask questions
were reducer! in a few minutes to the
intelligent and luminous comment, "No,
no." ,
JftCk Kirkpatrick, tn his first public
address to the electors last night fulfilled the promise of his friends and
admirers. Jack is not. an orator nor
a trained political debater. He makes
no pretence of being either. But his
"straight Hung words and few" went
right to the core of the matter. Leaving the "weighed defence" to more experienced speakers he declared In favor of lhe party of principle and the
party that has replaced bankruptcy,
and gave his word���a word that no
man, woman or child in Nelson would
dream of doubting���that he would be
a faithful and zealous supporter of that
cause and that leader In whom British
Culuuiljla trusts.
Even Dr. Hall's warmest friendB must
confess that he made a very sorry exhibition 'as' night. He showed courage,
wheh is always popular, but that was
all. The applause that he received all
c.ime before, not after, his attempt to
speak.   He was ready   to   accept all
Out of consideration for the feelings
of his friends, whether political or otherwise, we would suggest to the local
Liberal candidate to in future refrain
from introducing humorous (?) anecdotes into his political address. If
not judiciously bandied, and even then
by an expert In the art, they are apt
to prove a boomerang, and ln place of
hitting the mark are just as liable to
rebound on the narrator. Should the
loctor not feel Inclined to accept our
advice in this particular, we would suggest that in future he label his jokes
as such, with explicit instructions as
to when and where to laugh.
It is an old saying that politics
makes s range bedfellows. The present Liberal party in British Columbia
is a fair instance. Smith Curtis took
Willie Mclnnes' measure fairly well in
1903. He overestimated his talents.
Willie has only two qualities even of
a politician: a glib tongue and Insensibility to shame. Bu as to his lack
of principle Curtis was perfectly right.
But Smith Curtis and Willie are both
in the field as Liberal candidates. According to Smith Curtis, Willie is
"worse than Joe Martin." J. A. Macdonald despises Joe Martin, but he haa
invited Willie.
Lost, Stolen or misappropriated���At
the opera house, during the proceedings of the public political meeting on
Friday evening, the point of the anecdote related by the local Liberal candidate, A liberal reward will be paid
for the return of sume to the committee rooms of the candidate, as it Is
prized, not so much on account of its
value, as for the associations connected therewith, it being a souvenir of the
Ottawa machine.
Mr. Bowser aid not tell all of Willie
Mclnnes' public career last night. Willie
was famous once. He was the subject
of an article in the Toronto Globe.
There is a story���not told by Dr. Hall
���of a man who used to boast that the
great Duke of Wellington once spoke
to him. All the duke had said to him
was: "Get out of the way." All the
Globe had to say of Willie was that
he was "a liar and a slanderer,"
The answer given by Nelson last
night to the premier's appeal for their
judgment on the continuation of the
Columbia & Western subsidy, will be
the reply given by tho whole province.
A policy of confiscation will never be

A local mining man has a peculiar
laugh by which he can always be identified. He was the only one who laughed
at Dr. Halls funny story last night.
His friends ascribe It to previous conviviality.
"It is said" that Dr. Hall has some
other funny stories for future meetings.
Good idea. Even that will be a relief
to the audience from the ravings of
the Wild Boy from the Yukon, or the
drivelling of poor John Oliver.
If the apologies for lack of constructive policy given in Nelson by J. A.
Macdonald and Dr. Hall are all the
Liberals have to offer, an election is
an unnecessary expense and formality.
"Fair-weather" politicians was an apt
expression. The breed is a numerous
one. In times when economy Is required ihey seek positions elsewhere.
When surpluses are in sight they return like a flight of vultures.
If "Dick" McHrlde and J. A. Macdonald were announced to speak In different halls in Nelson the same evening,
how many Liberals would prefer listening to the professional mourner!

Hla Questioning of the Doctors in the
Temple the Only Event Recorded���
Service! Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the first Sunday
after the Epiphany. No holy daya occur during the week following. An
event of interest to the congregation of
St. Saviour's church Is the celebration
of the completion of tbe firth year of
Rev. F. II. Graham's incumbency, which
will be observed with special music at
the regular services.
The gospel for the day contains St.
Luke's account of the child Christ debating with the doctors ln the temple.
His three days spent there before He
was found by His earthly parents, the
amazement of the divines at the precocious knowledge and Intelligence of a
boy of 12 years, and His mystic reply
to His mother's gentle reproach, "Wist
ye not that I must be about My
Father's business?"
Rationalistic students of comparative
theology dwell on the fact that a similar���almost identical���story is related
of Buddha. But the reply is different.
Buddha pleaded a mysterious call to
higher things, a call to renunciation of
all earthly pleasures and all earthly
ties, the beginning of his own Nirvana.
Christ's answer is that He must prepare to do His Father's will. A definite task has been appointed for Him
on earth, and already, while He Is Just
on the borderland between childhood
and youth llo begins that duly.
Tho records of His life, from that
time until Ihe beginning of His ministry, a period of 18 years, are almost a
blank. Hence traditions that grew up
of His having (ravelled far, especially
in tie East, and having studied the
learning and the beliefs of many peoples. The authentic records by His
disciples only begin with the date of
their calling; most of them were not
written till some years later. Nowhere
In the canonical scriptures Is there any
attempt to tell his life story, except
the statement of lhe fact that Ho lived
and worked with His earthly father,
Joseph, as a carpenter In Nazareth.
This Btriklng event of His childhood,
recorded in the gospel for tomorrow, Is
(he only definite story of the years between Infancy and manhood.
The following services aro announced at tho various churches for tomorrow:

New York World's London Correspondent Knows Most Private Affairs.
New Tork, Jan. 12���The World correspondent hears that under the separation agreement reached between the
Matlborotigs the duke settles on their
children the sum of $100,000, settled
on him by the duchess' father, W. K.
Vanderbilt, at the marriage. This will
accumulate for them during their minority, less the cost of their living and
education. The duke, after maintaining Blenheim, which he Is determined
to do as a metier of principle and ln
order to prove that its maintenance was
not dependent upon the duchess' fortune, will have about $40,000 Income,
and now he ts looking for a good but
not costly flat In Mayfalr for a town
residence. King Edward, through the
Marquis of Lansdowne, when the duchess visited the Lansdowne's at Bowood
before Christmas, pressed the duchess
to avoid any open separation, but to follow the example of the Duke and Duchess of Sutherland and agree merely to
live apart and divide the children's
time between the parents. The duke
had already agreed and It was after the
duchess left Bowood that he and the
duchess met In Paris In the presence
of her mother. The idea then was that
In a few days the children were to Join
the duchess In Purls and go with her
cruising in her father's yacht, but the
duke informed ber that Lord Ivor, their
youngest snn, waB 111 with measles and
influensa at Blenheim, whereupon she
re:urne,*l lmmedately to London.
Though she did not go to Blenheim
she received constant- Information of
his condition. Sunderland house,
which Bhe had dismantled before her
departure, has been reopened and the
children will Join her for a trip abroad.
The duchess has been seen more since
her return from Paris, It having been
Impressed upon her that she was damaging ber position by withdrawing
from the public gate. Her landau ls
now seen In Bond street every dny.

To the Bitter End.
PariB, Jan. 12.���It Is certain thai the
Frsnch hl.hopa when they meet January 15 will register the decision of
Pope Plus X. conveyed In the encyclical Issued yesterday. The clergy and
Catholics generally recognize that the
church cannot emerge victorious from
scourge of God: Plus X. Is the scourge
church will he harder. It Is stated
that the first attempt of the Vatican to
arouse Catholics to seek relief from
It at the polls will be met by a measure
authorizing the government to record
all priesla as subjects of a foreign power il Jaures, the Socialist leader, discussing the encyclical, said today*
'The pope desires to save the dignity
of the hlerarchv, but In reality Is preparing their ruin. Attlla was lhe
scourge of Cod; Plus Q. Is the scourge
of the church."
