their faith in his administration.
The premier who has become accustomed to listening to opposition stock
charges such as were made by Mr.
Keen, swiftly and most effectively destroyed what he termed tbe only policy
���a policy of abuse���the Liberals bad
to present. He told of how little effect such tactics bad on the electorate
of the province, for everywhere he bad

met with unmistakable assurances that
his government would be rs turned to

There was no doubt in bis mind about

Demoralization of Fernie Liberals  Ensures Return of Present Representative.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Fernie, Jan. IB.���As the political
campaign in Fernie progresses, lt becomes more and more evident that Mr.
W. R. Ross will be elected to the provincial legislature by a large majority.
The magnificent reception accorded to
the premier on his recent visit, and
his splendid address on that occasion,
have made a great Impression. Recent
events within the local Liberal party
have also given their opponents cause
for self-congratulation. The party
here has always heen troubled with
dissension within the ranks, and has
found it necessary to take one or two
of their obnoxious comrades by the
scruff of the neck and cast them Into
outer darkness. Trouble has now
broken out In a new place. The Liberal candidate, Mr. Dicken, is a candidate for municipal honors. Th ecity
elections are to be held this week, and
there are two tickets ln tbe field, with
Mr. Dicken, of course, on one of tbem.
Liberal support is about equally divided between tbe two opposing forces,
snd in consequence half of his advisers wish him to wlthdra wfrom the
municipal contest, on the ground that
It will hurt his chances In tbe provincial election if be is defeated, and the
otber half support him ln his present
determination to run for everything
In sight. Tbe dispute Is not settled
as yet, and loud and angry voices, with
banging ot books and slamming of
doors, are now and then heard In the
vicinity of the Liberal committee
In the meantime, both Liberals and
Socialists are anxiously watching for
the Labor party's next move In the
game. Their first meeting was captured by the Socialist element, but was
adjourned without any action being
taken. If Frank Sherman, the present
dlatrlct president of the Miners' union,
is re-elected to that position In the
election to be held today, ho will make
a strong bid for the nomination at the
adjourned Labor convention. At present both Ihe Socialist and the Liberal
candidates aro wooing thc Labor iiarty leaders with soft' and honeyed
words, and whispering soft nothings in
their cars, each still hoping to secure
the Labor vote by receiving the endorsement of the convention.
Meanwhile, Mr. W. R. Robs, with a
creditable record In tho house during
Iho last three years, and the certainty
of a brilliant future there, Ib conducting his canvass with a Bolid and enthusiastic parly at his back. Ho is everywhere receiving encouragement and
promises of support, many who bave
been life-long Liberals promising him
Iheir votos. He has the advantage of
having behind him an cnthuslustie and
harmonious corps of workers. Among
them are to be found no hurrylngs to
and fro, no whisperings in corners, no
stealthy Intrigue, which, ln consequence of the municipal cmbrogllo, are
distracting tho counsels of the Llboral
party. Ab the 2nd of February draws
near, "tho man In the street" grows
more and more certain, and the sporting fraternity offer larger and larger
odds, that "Billy" Ross will represent
Fernie for four years more.

London. Jan. 16.���The destruction
wrought by tbe earthquake at Kingston, Jamaica, and the subsequent conflagration, according to an official telegram received this morning at the colonial office, was by no means so widespread as Indicated In the first reports.
Although the total number of killed
and wounded has not yet been ascertained, It IB apparently not very large
and only a small portion of the city,
including, however, wharves and warehouses, suffered rrom the fire that followed the earthquake. The greatest
number of casualties singly was in the
city hospital, where 30 colored troops
were killed. The telegram which was
Bent by Governor Sweetenbam ls undated, but is presumed to have been
sent on Monday.   The text follows:
"Severe earthquake Bhock this afternoon, between 3 and 4 o'clock, causing
considerable damage tu houses and
property at Kingston. It was followed
by a fire which continues, though it Is
confined to about one-sixteenth part
of the town, containing wharves and
warehouses. The camp hospital wae
destroyed and 30 men were killed
There wore no officers among them.
Major Headyman was seriously injured. The town hospital Is crowded with
some 300 injured. The fire is now decreasing. Thc Myrtle Bank house has
been destroyed and also the cable office. The Myrtle bank is practically
destroyed. The conference delegates
and tbe membera of Sir Fred Jones'
expedition are believed to be uninjured and are now at Port Langston.
The exact number of people killed or
wounded has not yet been ascertained.
Slight shocks continue.*'
Boston, Jan. 16.���The United Fruit
company ln this city received a cablegram from Jamaica today stating that
several hundred persons were killed In
Kingston. The cablegram, dated Holland Bay, Jan. 15, Is as follows:
"Mercantile section of Kingston, including our offices, completely destroyed by earthquake and fire. Several hundred killed."
London, Jan. 16.���The steamship aud
cable companies here have received
belated messages dated Monday, via
Holland Bay. A deapatch to the Royal
Mall Steam Packet Co. says: "Kingston wrecked and most of the war vca-
sels and warehouses burned, but our
main wharf, sheds, coal uud cargo safe.
Offices wrecked. Constant, superintendent of tho company, and Captain
Young, commander of the Areno, were
killed." The Areno Is a small steamer
belonging to lbe Royal Steam Packet
Co., and it Is presumed thut Ihe superintendent and captain were killed
In the wreck of the company's office.
The message to the Royal Mall Company simply says that Mr. James Ferguson is missing and adds that Governor Swoetenham had asked tho local
representatives of the company to soil
provisions and stores of tho company
to his service for the relief of the sufferers from tho earthquake and fire,
nnd also cabled to the Now York offices of ths Royal Mall to send provisions to Kingston by the Athrato and
other steamers with all possible speed.
Tho company has not heard of any
damage having been sustained by their
vessels in Kingston harbor.
Oilier cable despatches from Kingston Bay that the offices of the direct
West India Cable Co. were wrecked,
but uo fatalities occurred among the
members of the staff. Mr. Conder, one
of tho clerks, wae severely injured.
The Colonial Bank of Kingston was
burned down. The safes, with books
and cash, are sale, and members of
tho Btaff escaped uninjured. Cable
communications have been restored to
within eight miles of Kingston, connec-
nection having been   made   with the
cable at a place called Bull Bay. The
latest Information received here from
Kingston said that the fire was under
control and added that the number of
West Indian soldiers killed ln the camp
hoapital was three Instead of 30, as
had been previously reported. The colonial office this morning wae besieged
with Inquirlers who asked for news of
relatives or friends In Jamaica, but
the officials had nothing further to
communicate for the present, except
that the officials of tbe colonial offloe
had every reason to believe that the
fatalities at Kingston were light. Tbe
colonial office haB Instructed tbe government authorities In Jamaica to take
all the necessary steps to relieve the
distress among tbe earthquake sufferers. The admiralty has ordered the
cruiser Brilliant now In Bermuda, and
tbe cruiser Indefatigable, at present at
Trinidad, to proceed lo Jamaica and
assist In relief work.| They are both
vessels of 3600 tons and their combined
crewB number about 650 men, which
will enable them to land strong detachments for police or other duties ln tbe
devastated city.
London, Jan. 16.���Later.���The contradictory and scanty reports which
thus far have reached London from Jamaica renders it difficult to estimate
the real extent of the calamity caused
by the earthquake and subsequent conflagration. Messages received by the
various steamship ant* . cable companies here Indicate that while tbe early
report of the destruction of Kingston
and great loss of life were exaggerated,
the disaster was still of a grave character. Ruin and desolation are said
to stretch miles outside tbe city. The
shocks were felt from 60 to 60 miles
away and one despatch from the temporary cable station at Bull Bay says
that not a single house between there
and Kingston Island is safe.
The Itoyal Mail Steamer Packet company's office here received instructions from its home office in London
today to carry free to Kingston all
food supplies for tbe sufferers from
the disaster there. The first steamer
to sail from New York to Kingston will
be Monday, January _ 21. Tbe next
steamer will be on-January 22.
London, Jan. 16.���No estimate of the
loss of life from official sources has
come through, but the negro troops in
thc camp hospital appear to have been
In the center of the visitation as do
less than 40 were killed there alone.
There were Isolated fatalities among
the Europeans at Kingston, but apparently the aggregate of the victims la
slim. The distance between the
buildings known to bave been destroyed Is taken to Indicate that the total
loss of property will be great. According to latest despatches, slight earthquake shocks continue to be felt at
New York, Jan. 16.���The Hamburg
Steamship company announced at its
office here today that supplies tor
Kingston will be carried freo of charge
on that company's steamer Prinz Juan-
chin, which will sail from New York
for Kingston on Saturday January 19.
Silver City    Again    Afflicted���Losses
Will Be Heavy.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Sandon, B. C.Jan. 16.���A disastrous
fire started today In the famous
Filbert hotel. The Balmoral hotel and
barber shop were completely gutted.
Tho Inmates barely escaped wltb their
Uvea. The valuables were saved but
personal losses will be heavy.
The Filbert loss Is estimated at $10,-
000 and tbe Balmoral at (6000.
Tbe weatber Ib extremely cold, the
thermometer registering 20 below aero.
Great bravery was shown by tho willing workerB at fire fighting who were
absolutely encased in ice.
All energies are now directed to save
the main portion of tho city. The fire
was under control at 10 p. m. the wind
being favorable to suppression.
Mere Matter of Etiquette.
It would be funny, If the case were
less serious, to analyse the Liberal
view of the Better Terms controversy.
J. A. Macdonald says that Mr. McBrlde's claim was Just, and will be
maintained by the Liberals If placed lit
powet. Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Mr.
Fielding admit that It Is Just. Thon
why bas It not been granted? Because
Mr. McBride didn't ask in' the right
way. Was ever so childish an answer
given by an adult to a serious question upon a matter of importance?

Annual Meeting of Representatives
of the Industry in British Columbia and Washington
The freedom of the Queen City of
the Kootenays bas been Informally
conferred upon, or assumed by, tbe
lumbermen of the Northwest, wbo are
here in force. The cry of the Hoo-
Hoos Is heard everywhere. Prominent
among the visiting members of tbe
coast and mountain associations are
Messrs. Moody and Alexander of Vancouver; T. Ludgate, of Arrowhead; A.
Leitch, of Cranbrook; A. K. Watts, of
Wattsburg; F. W. Jones, of Golden;
W. E. Cook, of Kaslo, wbile J. P. MeGoldrick is here with a big contingent
from Spokane.
The first meeting of what is certain
to be at least a two-day session, wss
held in the office of the Mountain
Lumbermen's association this morning, with about 60 members present,
and F. W. Jones, president of the
Mountain Association, in the chair.
The morning's discussions were
quite animated, dealing mainly with
the question of establishing standard
sues, as to length, width and thickness, of all products. Tbe idea met
with general approval, and la likely to
be formally adopted.
General conditions of the lumbering
Industry are being discussed this afternoon. It is not considered likely
that the question ot. prices will be
reached until tomorrow.
The great Black Cat banquet will be
held in tbe Strathcona tonight. The
Mystic Order of the Black Cat, the
Famous Concatenation ot the Hoo-
Hoos, is now about 14 years old. It
was organized In playful parody of the
ritual and nomenclature of other secret societies. Its only objects are
the "health, long life and happiness"
of all its membera. Its numbers were
originally limited to 9999; the annual
dues are 99 cents; the meetings are
held every ninth month, and on the
ninth day ot the month.
But the idea "caught on," the order
lived and grew, and now numbers
ma: y m.*re than the mystic 9999.
The pnsldent of tonight's banquet
will be "Vicegerent Grand Snark"
Moody, of Vancouver. His only superior on earth is the Supreme Almighty
Royal Grand Arch-Snark of the Universe.
Has Willie a Vote?
There Is a persistent rumor to the
effect that W. W. B. Mclnnes is not
registered as a voter In any electoral
district in British Columbia. We are
prepared to believe almost anything
ridiculous regarding Billy, but this
last reaches the climax. Will the "lt
Ib said" organ please enlighten the
faithful In the matter?
Tbe Summers Stock company will
open a week's engagement at Sher-
mau'a opera house on Monday next,
January 21, at popular prices. The
company will present a select repertoire with change of bill nightly, opening Monday evening In the roaring
farce-comedy, "Mrs. Temple's Telegram."
Cards aro out for an "At Home" in
the Knights of Pythias hall Thursday
evening by the ladles of St. Saviour's
branch of the Women's Auxiliary, at
which the guests of honor will be Rev.
F. H. Graham and Mrs. Graham. Its
purpose Is a gathering of the congregation In honor of thc completion of
the fifth year of Mr. Graham's Incumbency.
It Is characteristic of the Liberal
party, and especially of Willie Mclnnes, that In hard times they nre content to let others do the hard and
thankless work, while, as soon as
there Is a surplus in sight thoy develop
a wolfish hunger for office,
George T. Cane is thoroughly discredited in Kaslo for ever on account
of his conduct at last night's meeting.
Only respect for the visitors restrained
decent Liberals from throwing him out
of the hall.
Nicholas Oates. who died at the
Homo hospital yesterday, will be burled
tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock from
D. J. Robertson & Co.'s undertaking
parlors. The funeral service will be
read by Rev. F. H. Graham.

Crops, Crimes and Sport���Fsrmers Expect Increased Yield on Acount
of Deep Frost
Lethbrldge, Jan. 16.���William M.
Taylor, who about three months ago
completed a term of two or three years
ln the penitentiary at Stony Mountain,
Man., anl has since been living In
Lethbrldge, was arrested tonight by
H. Perry, chief of police, on a charge
of forgery, and lockel in tbe cells to
await his preliminary trial before Magistrate Humphries tomorrow afternoon
at 8 o'clock,
Taylor, wbo Is a half-breed, was arrested at tbe instance of his half-sister, Mary Taylor, a girl about 17 years
of age, whose signature, lt Is claimed,
he forged to a check for $10, which
he cashed at the Union bank on or
about January t.
P. L. Welamlth, general manager of
the Alberta Railway 4b Irrigation company, waa asked If the oompany would
raise Its scale of prices at Its coal
mlnea here ln view of the action of the
Vancouver dealera In boosting the price
of coal $1 per ton, replied, "No, sir;
our prices are the same till next
spring, regardless of conditions."
In the wee hours of yesterday the
mercury at the meteorological station
at Lethbrldge descended to 38 degrees
below sera, th elowest point for the
season so far, and for several seasons.
During tbe day the weather moderated considerably, and today It was
bracing but not severe.
The unwonted cold snap which sunny
Southern Alberta is experiencing is
not without compensations, and while
the stock men are thoughtful over the
situation, the farmers see nothing but
cheer, for the deeper the frost goes
the better next year's crop of wheat
will be. "The cold weather will do tbe
farmers good," said Willla mlngram,
of the Alberta Realty Company, on
the subject yesterday. "It drives the
frost deeper Into tbe ground, and that
means that It will be later In coming
out In the spring, the frost rising over
this longer period will keep the ground
molat most of the summer, and except
In one or two cases a fine yield will
bo assured. Thc fall wheat, which will
be blgh enough to shade the ground,
and therefore hold the moisture a little longer, will benefit the most, but
the Spring wheat will also reap much
benefit. The Fall wheat, I believe,
has more than, half of the acreage In
Southern Alberta.
Winnipeg, Jan. 16.���"Tough" Belle-
feullle, tbe speedy defence man on the
Kenora thistles, has been released by
the management, and Is not on the
present trip after the cup. Bellefeullle
ts one ot tbe best ln the business, but
according toreportslsahardman hr me
accordlngt o reports, Ib a hard man to
control. He has received a good offer
to Join the Strathconas and Is also
wanted by the Ottawaa, wbo need a defence man now that Moore Is out of
tho game. It ls probable Bellefeullle
will go to the capital.
Fire In Baker Street   Premise*   This
Morning Soon Subdued.
The fire de partment made a quick
run to box 42 at 10:30 o'clock this
morning, and extinguished an Incipient
fire In the office of the Yale-Kootenay
Ice & Fuel Co.'s office. Before the
arrival of the firemen a number of
persons broke open the front doors,
scattering glass ln all directions and
admitting the air. Two chemical extinguishers were used on the tire anl
a ltne of hose laid from the corner of
Stanley and Baker streets. The loss
will not exceed $60. How the fire originated Is a mystery. When the firemen
entered the building they found a box
of ooal, a sack and other articles on
fire. It Is supposed that a match was
dropped on the inflammable material
surrounding the stove.
Ralpb Smllb and W _ Sloan
Liberal Members Despatched From
Ottawa to Help Opposition
in Distress
(Special to The Daily Canadian. )
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 16.���Evidence
that the Liberals are In a frenxy of despair at the certainty of defeat on February 2nd. la accumulating. It wm
authoritatively stated today that Ralph
Smith, M. P., and W. Sloan, M. P., bad
been called on to assist W. W. B. Mclnnes and J. A. Macdonald lo their
hopeless task.
While this latest development la generally accepted as an unmistakable Indication that the federal authorities are
interesting themselves in the campaign
lt has also shown that Mclnnes has
tailed to sweep through the province
Uke a firebrand, flaming ever fiercer as
he progresses. That was what was expected of the ex-governor of the Yukon,
but what actually occurred fell very
much short ot what was anticipated.
Mr. Mclnnes was received coolly. His
addresses have been listened to with
critical Interest by fairly large crowds
at different places, but he bas not succeeded In cresting the wildly Irresistible enthusiasm among the Liberals
which wss expectod to materially help
them in turning the voters to their
side. Therefore the aid of Messers.
Smith and Sloan has been requested.
That they will come Is assured.
Whether they will do better than their
predecessor, Molnnes, Is another question. As a matter of fact, lt Is scarcely likely that they will meet with quite
as good a reception. Mr. Mclnnes' offhand manner, his "Hall fellow well
met" greeting to all and sundry, his unfailing good humor, are characteristics
which make his speeches palatable to
the crowd, although the concensus of
opinion upon the public Issues under
discussion may be found by a canvass
among local politicians of unbiased
casts.   Mr. Mclnnes was tolerated.
It ls predicted thnt the feeling of tho
electorate will be more plainly expressed when Messrs. Smith and Sloan
commence addressing public gatherings
In opposition to tha present provincial
Liberal Machine Methods Resented In
Victoria, Jan. IE.���The Liberals ot
Saanlch have nominated John Piercy
aa their standard-bearer In the forthcoming election. Their former representative, H. Tanner, was unable to
aland against the numerical Strength
of the former's supporters, snd Is reported to hsve accepted his defeat
It Is stated on reliable authority
that the substitution of Mr. Piercy for
Mr. Tanner has created serious dissension among the Liberals of that district. The general opinion appears to
be that It is but another Indication of
the growing power and Influence of ths
Ottawa "machine." It the reports
which are constantly being received
may be relied upon, the dissension
among the adherents of the two aspirants for the candidacy la ot an exceedingly bitter character���almost as
much so as It Is between the local dissenting factions of the Liberal association. This Information ls corroborated by a well known Saanlch Liberal,
wbo yesterday volunteered tbs prophecy that Mr. Piercy would be badly
beaten because he was "one ot thjB
largest cogs ln the wheel ot the Ottawa "machine."
Mr. Eberts Is not only confident that
he will be returned, but he Is convinced thst Premier McBride will bs accorded the endorsement of the whole
country. He points out that the people are satisfied, that they are prosperous, snd do not wish a change In
the government at the preaent Juncture. The Daily Canadian

But la Is only a little more than
three years since the Liberals of British Columbia, on the eve of a genera]
provincial election, issued a manifesto
to the electors, containing their platform drawn up at a convention beiil in
Vancouver on February (ith untl Tth,
1902. At that convent Inn Stuart Henderson, lute member lot' Vain, wub
chairman, and .1. A. Maciloiialsl anil W.
\V. B. Mclnnes were both present.
The planks of that platform, though
not yet four years old, make strange
reading now. They are worthy of a
brief summary.
Clause 1 called for redistribution of
seats, a subject now apparently dead.
Clause 2 was: "Governmenl ownership, Dominion, provincial and municipal, of public services of utilities ia
sound, antl shoulil be carried out in
British Columbia." That clause has
never been repudiated, If it means
anything at all, it pledges any future
Liberal government to expropriate railways, telegraphs, telephones and power plants, at least, if not al��o tbe production of food In nil forms. That
clause alone would do for a whole Socialist platform.
Clause 3 Bays: "Should it be advisable at any time to granl aid to a railway company, such old shnll lie In
cash, not In land."    J. Fred Hume Is
pledged to grant no aid in cash, land,
or anything else, while J. A. Macdon-
nlil wants railways, not only not aided
but taxed to the limit.
Clause 4 calls for the Immediate construction of railways, totalling 1700
miies in length, as follows: The Coast-
Koolenay extension of the Island line,
a line in the northern part of the province from the coast to the eastern
boundary, with an extension to the
northern boundary; a line from Alberni
to a point on the east coast of the
Island; the Midway & Vernon, by way
of the Norlh Fork of the Kettle Blver;
all, "with necessary branch lines, ferries and connections." All these were
to be constructed Immediately. At the
price���In cash, not land���required by
companies at that time, $30,000 per
tulle, the cost of construction would
have been $51,000,000���rather a large
nnilertaklng for a bankrupt province.
Clauses 5 and 6 referred to the sealing duties and dyking areas, both now
(lend issues.
Clause 7 declared that the government should keep In touch with mining conditions, and "if necessary build
and operate smelters and refineries."
Clauses 8 to 12 condemn Oriental
Immigration, strikes and lock-outs, and
speculation in land, and advocate Ihe
building of mads antl rcvlBion of tax-a-
lion "to bear upon privilege rather than
II Is greatly to lhe credit of the Liberals that nothing Is now* beard of
such an ama/.ingly foolish programme.
Tint Ha adoption Iobs thnn four years
ago, and the fact that no other constructive policy has yet been auba'tluit-
ed for It, prove what we have always
contended, (hat the Liberals have no
policy at nil.
The last paragraph In the manifesto
contains the following: "We shall also
strenuously presB upon the Dominion
government it readjustment of our financial relations." How strenuously?
Not enough to embarrass the machine.
If the Liberals���even the most credulous or them���have really any Idea
of winning the campaign, how is It that
we have had no slates for Liberal cab
Inets? It ts true that ln 1903 they
could not even tell who, In the event
of a Liberal victory would be thc premier. But they should be less raw
now. They have had some experience
I as critics and have had an opportunity
of displaying their respective inclinations. J. a. Macdonald, presumably,
would be attorney general and ^wottld
no doubt administer that department
efficiently. John Oliver as the critic-
in-chief of the School Act has special
claims on the portfolio of education,
to which is attached tbe provincial secretaryship. Smith Curtis would doubtlessly desire the department of mines.
We cannot think of anyone adapted
for the finauee or lands and works departments, and there Is only the presidency of lhe council left. Stuart Henderson might do for president of the
council, but of eourae he will not be
there. Then there remain W. 0. Wells,
J. ."red Hume, John Keen, Dr. Hull, K.
L. Drury and Willie Mclnnes all unprovided for. They will surely have
to create a few more ornamental departments besides that of labor and
Immigration, By the way, why not
create a department of scandal? John
Oliver might prefer that to education.
Captain R. G. Tatlow, provincial
minister of finance, has heen eulogized
In the Liberal press, or at least in that
part of it which makes any pretence of
being fair on the occasion of his two
budget speeches announcing surpluses.
But now that a campaign is on even
those papers make haste to assert
that there is no credit iu the surpluses,
because they result from increase of
taxes and reduction of expenditure on
public works. What, then, did they
formerly praise? Was it merely Captain 'Tatlow's bookkeeping? T,o Increase taxes under any circumstances
is a most unpopular and therefore a
most courageous proceeding for a government, and the same Is true of refusal or postponement of public works.
But to perform both tasks at once
without retarding development or crippling Industry and without throwing an
undue burden upon any class, requires
administrative ability of the highest order. That Is the feat accomplished.
That is what a few of the Liberal organs saw and praised and what they
muBt still praise If party prejudice were
not stronger than love of truth and
fair play.
It is characteristic of the Dally News
to labor a point that has been clear
to every one else for many months and
which has no relevancy to present issues even if the construction put upon
lt by the News could be maintained.
The premier has already given a full
and frank Btatement of all details of
the grant of Kaien Island to the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway company. The
deal was negotiated by E. V. Bodwell,
K. C, acting nominally for Messrs.
Lai-son and Anderson. The transaction, after all the facts were known,
was highly commended by the Toronto
Globe, the leading Liberal newspaper
of the Dominion, but remote enough
from the present campaign to express
a rational and fair judgment. The
great majority of the electors of Nelson, and of British Columbia, are fully
convinced that the Interests of the
province are better guarded and served
In that transaction than the rights of
the public have been In any similar
case in Canadian history. Still the Liberal press will keep on harping on old
strings of which the public Is as tired
as they are of J. A. Macdonald's dismal
When the chairman of the Conservative meeting, held last Friday night,
in compassion for Dr. Hall'B evident
sufferings, told him that his time was
up, the doctor declared lamely that, he
had hardly begun, had lots to say, he
would like an hour to speak. Last
night Dr. Hall had his opportunity
and threw It away. A fair crowd would
probably have gathered to hear tho
curio from the Yukon. All Dr. Hall
had to do was to hold the audience
spell-bound until Willie arrived. He
could have poured forth his eloquence
for at least two hours. He might have
told the electors at least a part of what
he would have said at the Conservative meeting "if ho had lime." Tho
Conservative committee was not at all
sure of the prompt arrival of the coast
train bearing Messrs. McBride and
Bowser, but it was arranged In advance that local speakers would, if
necessary, keep the audience Interested until their arrival. Have the Liberals no orators���except Dr. Hall? It
Is a melancholy and humiliating confession that the holding of a Liberal
meeting In Nelson was Impossible be-
cause Willie Mclnnea wae late.
It would perhaps not affect the result materially, but lt might add a little Interest to the campaign If the Liberal Bpeakers and editors would stop
whining nbout the slanderous chargos
they have failed to prove and give the
people some Idea of what they would
do If they were in office. Their plat-
forni of 1902 Is too obviously ridiculous for discussion. One cannot, think
without a smile of Willie Mclnnes being consulted ns to a constructive policy of any kind. And the "great analytical mind" of J. A. Macdonald Is no
help here. Analysis is necessary to
criticism, anil In that J. A. bas failed
miserably. Even at Its best power ol
analysis Is not constructive. A merely
negative policy will make no impression iiiion a people wbo are busy reaping the harvest of prosperity, of which
lhe seeds were sown, as they well
know, by the present administration,
The list o.r candidates in Use field
In the various constituencies is rapidly filling up and Ihe political prophets are already bard al work with
their slates. But it does nol require
tbe gift of prophecy to enable anyone
with any acquaintance of lite constituencies and the candidates to recognize at a glance that the only hope for
an administration with a majority secure against al] possible combinations,
is with the Conservatives. A vote for
a Liberal or a Socialist Is a vote for
an assembly of small groups, with no
one ln control ami no one really responsible.
No one has any objection to Willie
Mclnnes' returning to his native province to vote, or even to run tor the
legislature, If he can find a new constituency that doesn't know him, but
we do object to his being hailed as a
lieutenant, a "powerful colleague," and
possible successor to the present Liberal leader. It is a sad commentary on
the poverty of the Liberal parly in the
province that a young man of Willie's
endowments and Willie's record should
be hailed as a valuable acquisition.
Charles Semiin, of Yale, Is not the
only pioneer and' veteran wins has been
roused to action by the shamelessly
Impudent and tyrannical threat of the
Ottawa machine to exact obedience
from British Columbia as the price of
justice in the financial relations of the
province and the* Dominion. There
was a time when British Columbians
repudiated the name Canadian. That
spirit was happily dying out until It
was revived lately by the prospect of
a conflict between the Dominion and
the province, in which all tbe right is
almittedly on the side of the province.

ot victory than they are at preaent.
Hon. Mr. Maason, the candidate for reelection, states that has absolutely no
doubt but that he will be returned on
February 2. Throughout the whole
constituency there ls harmony and confidence among Manaon's supporters
that spells nothing but victory. Every
day Brewster's supporters aire losing
courage and are beginning to be moat
fear'ul of Ihe result. Mr. Brewster ia
put Ing u;i a strenuous campaign. In
the meantime, Hr. Manson ia at Victoria attending to the duties of hla
new offloe. At a time when one would
think he would be camra'gnlng, Mr.
Manson aasyn that the feeling of Al-
ber.sl ia ao much In his favor that he
has no f��ara but that he will be e'ect-
ed, and In fa-1 feels so sure of lt that
he remains at Victoria gett'ng the af-
fairs of his * department In hand for
much progressive work after the government Is returned again.

Nanaimo, Jan. 16.���At a very large
convention of Conservatlvea here Dr.
R. 8. B. O'Brien waa unanimously
chosen, he being the strongest canli-
date whom they oould bring out. The
doctor has made a lite-long study of
politics, and probably there ls no man
ln the province better seenatnteil with
provincial or Dominion pontic* than
Dr. O'Brlan. He ls a forelble speaker,
a logical debater and being versatile
and agfreaalve would certainly make
an able representative.
The Conservative vote tn Nanaimo
Is admittedly the largest vote ln the
city, and receiving tbat vote In Its
entirety Dr. O'Brlan should have lit-
ale difficulty In winning his election.
With the excellent record of the McBride government during the pnat
three yeara and the confidence of the
province generally ln Its admlnlatra-
tion, the Conservatives here ftel that
as a straight supporter of that bov-
ernisent, the chances for electing their
nominee were never better.
All Together.
Vancouver, Jan. 16.���The political
pot here la boiling merrily. Reports
