was endorsed In that policy by the provincial electorate.
Since Ihen his career haB always been
open to the public gaze, and will bear
any scrutiny. His administration has
been efficient and clean, his measures
far-sighted and In sympathy with tlie
growing needs of the province. His
conduct as leader of the house has
been marked by promptness, diligence
and Industry and hy a courtesy aud

Is easily the most popular man ln the

As a speaker he Is clear, fluent,

TROUBLES OF NAVIGATION.
Ice on All interior Lakes Impedes C. P.
R. Steamers.
Tbe C. P. R. steamer Kootenay reached Nakusp early yesterday morning
ufter two duys' conteBt with the six
Inches of Ice on the Arrow lakes below
liui-ion City. The Ice-breaker had to
be used constantly. Au the lower 20
miles of the lake enjoys almost perfect
calm, Ice forms easily, and with a boat
service every third day lt Is Impossible
to keep the channel open. In consequence the 0. P. R. will not guarantee
the delivery of mall, freight, passengers or express below Burton City.
Tbe steamer will continue ber Monday and Thursday trips, going as fur
south as tlie Ice will permil below Hurton City. The shore Ice furnishes au
excellent road for the use of the settlers living below the lowest point
reached by the boal, aud they should
have no difficulty ln maklug connections.
The unusual duration of the present
cold spell is causing some trouble on
all tbe lakes. Ice bas to be broken
constantly at Arrowhead and the tug
Columbia has been put Into commission
to break Ice and help lu the freight
transfer. At Kooteuay Landing about
half a mile of Ice hau to be broken every morning before Uie Kuskanook can
make dock. On Trout Lake the Procter
is muking special trips to keep tbe
channel open, though there ls leBs Ice
than usual. At Pentlcton, for the first
time since 180G, the shore Ice, piling
up at the lower end of Okanagan lake,
Is causing trouble. At Kelowna the
thermometer has registered 19 degrees
below sero. At Robson Genelle's mill
tug ls keeping a channel open with difficulty. On Slocan lake the weight of
the Ice forming on the paddles aud hull
ls bothering the boat aud keeping the
crew busy.
WIECK NEAR WARDNER
Freight Train Collision���Brakeman A.
L. Chapelt  Killed���Five  Accidents
Within a Week.
(Special to Tbe Daily Canadian.) ..
Cranbrook, Jan. 11.���The C. P. R. Is
having a most distressing series of accidents during the present week. Since
Monday five wrecks or collisions of one
kind or another have occurred at Brock-
el, Burdette, McOIIIIvray, Dunmore
Junction, and now the fifth Is reported
at a point about two miles east of
Wardner. lt appears that Engineer
Klllens was taking back to Cranbrook
the engine that had run Into the local
at McGUllvray. This engine was iu the
centre of his train and on account of
Its condition he had orders not to proceed tPi'.f *t"sn ten miles au hour.
Thin morning au. it 6 o'clock a freight
train which was fss.. 'wir.g hlm got by
mistake a hurry-up srder and dashed
Into the rear of Klllens' train. The
brakeman, A. L. Chappell, waB killed.
His body, dreadfully mutilated, lies
here In Beatty's undertaking parlor.
Engineer Klllens is In the hospital, as
is iiIbo his fireman. Conductor Mcllur-
ney was badly shaken but wus able to
go home. The line at Wardner Is badly
torn up and strewn with wreckage. In
fact, the line from Dunmore Junction
lo Wardner Is wholly disorganised as
the result of the various accidents. The
No. G westbound pasenger, due here at
10:15 Is cancelled aud may not arris's
for the next 24 hours or more. Tho
depth of the snow and the extreme severity of the weather adds considerably
to the difficulty of dealing with an
acute situation.
EXHORTS TO PATIENCE.
Pope's Encyclical to French Catholics
Counsels Peace.
Rome, Jan. 11.���The Osservatore Romano today published the text of un
Important encyclical addressed by the
pope to the French Catholics, ln this
document Ihe pontiff said that his chief
object in addressing the faithful In
France was to comfort them In their
sufferings, which he felt deeply. There
was, however, greast consolation In the
fact that the Catholics of France were

united. The French government's dec
laratlon of war was not only against
the Christian faith, but against all spiritual ideas. The French Catholics must
be prepared for all sortB of trials, but
they are certain of final victory. ThiB
meant lhe maintenance of their union
with the holy see, which was of greater
Importance, as shown by the efforts of
the enemies of the church to dissolve
this union. Contrary to statements
made on the subject the church did not
desire a religious wur. Involving violent
persecution. Being a- messenger of
peace and carrying out her mission loyally, the church did uot willingly expose herself to war aud persecutions
as she did not desire to see her children suffering.
Regarding the ecclesiastical proper-
ertles the encyclical Bays the pope has
not abandoned them. The French government has Imposed upon French
Catholics an organisation which the
church was unable to accept without
Imperilling its existence as a divine
Institution. The statement that tbe
government dsposed of the abandoned
properties of the church was adding
derision to spoliation. It wus false to
Btate that the pontiff condemned in
France what he approved Ip Germany,
as the Germaen agricultural associations were merely tolerated, although
they recognized the hierarchy, which
wus not done in France. The new bill
amending the separation law of 1905
was simply a law of confiscation and in
regssrd to the exercise of public worship it was an anarchlal measure
Therefore, the people condemned it. In
conclusion the pope appealed to the
judgment of history, which, he said, will
recognise that the papacy does not wish
to humiliate any officials or oppose any
government, but defended the work of
the divine Founder of the church, demanding "respect for the hierarchy and
the Inviolability of its property and
liberty."

Chinook* Sweep Snow From Foothills
and   Afford    Needed    Pasturage   -
Lethbrldge, Alta., Jan. 10.���The temperature has taken a warm turn, the
mercury being at 34 degrees this morning, and h'-ss been steadily rising since.
A Chinook Is Mowing up and tbe ranchers' hearts are being gladdened by the
prospects for snow being off, and the
ground being uncovered for starving
herds. Many large ranchers here, Interviewed today, state that tbe cattle
that have so far succumbed were only
the weukest and tliat If the warm spell
holds, the prospects are good that the
ultimate loss ln minimis would not be
very considerable. ReportB from all directions state, however, that the ranges
are strewn with dead animals.
Calgary, Alia., Jan. 10.���Toulght the

WH0LES0MEJ1PTIMI.M
Address of President Starkey, of Board
of Trade, Reflects General Prosperity of Kootenay.
Lack of space unfortunately precludes tlie printing In full of the annual report of President Starkey of the
board of trade, which ls referred to
briefly elsewhere in this Issue. But
lhe following extracts on the general
situation and on the future work to be
accomplished by the board are too good
to be omitted:
"Gentlemen: I have to congratulate
you as representatives of the chief city
of the Interior of this province, justly
considered as potentially the most
wealthy of all the parts of this great
Dominion of ours, on the record of the
past year. I am of the opinion that ln
time to come 1906 will be regarded as
the parting of the ways, the dawn of
the new prosperity which Is soon to
make the Kootenay a beacon to all settlers, the cynosure of a worldwide empire and a home never to be deserted
by those who come among us.
"The mineral Industry we have had
siuce the beginnings of the Kootenay
but never was It more prosperous than
In the year just ended. The lumber,
clothing the long slopes of our mountains, covering up many a fertile valley; timber that not so long since was
regarded of such little worth that Its
wholesale destruction by ?lre hardly
evoked comment, ls now ln greater demand than ever. Many new mills have
come Into existence during 1906 and
yet larger mills are planned for 1907,
while the demand is such that no lumber reserve can be maintained. And
as the land Ib cleared of timber, so the
soil beneath becomes available for orchard purposes. Kootenay fruit has established a reputation in the best markets of the world. The demand for It
Ib so great that years will elapse be
fore the newly-planted trees will be
able to supply even the figures of the
demand of the present, while there Is
little prospect, ln view of the population now flocking Into Canada, and the
respect and admiration our fruit products obtain in the old country, tliat
tbe demand will ever fall below the
supply. . The prospect before our lumber is equally good. As tbe Northwest
builds up its population the demand for
many years to come will be far in excess of the Bupply of Eastern British
Columbia. Indeed, the time is already
foreshadowed when British Columbiu,
like Europe, especially France and Germany, or like India, will not only have
to take steps for the preservation of its
forests, as at present, but will also be
obliged to institute a department, as
ln those countries, for the perpetual
conservation of timber and timber land.
"Regarding the first of our products,
our minerals, although the prices are
unprecedently high, yet there ls little
likelihood of overproduction, for the
enterprise of the Trail smelter has
opened the market of the Orient to the
Kootenay, a market infinitely larger
than that of Canada The awakening
of China and its entry Into the prosecution of large Industrial undertakings,
it being a silver-using country, bas created a demand for silver and, ln fact,
the banks of China, foreign and native,
have placed on the coast Indefinite demands for silver, although tbe first
shipment (200,000 ounces) made from
Seattle is only five years old. So with
copper. Its use iu various industries ls
yearly growing and certainly so far
has kept ahead of the supply. Again,
as copper Is mostly found ln comparatively small percentages it can only be
mined, as in tbe Boundary, in Rossland,
ln the Queen Victoria, near Nelson, on
a large scale, thus meaning not only
the importation of large capital but
the employment of hundreds of men.
Indeed, by far the chief employers of
labor ln the Kootenay are the copper
mines.
"But, gentlemen, although these
things cannot be said to be the work
of Uie board of trade, being the results
of the working of the natural facts of
supply and demand, yet it ls supremely
our business ln the future, as It has
been In the past���the very reason of
our useful existence���to see that we
carefully note our assets and consider
thc manner ln which they may be best
exploited. The rise of these Industries
give birth to new condlUons which
mu.it be vatched by us. This Pactolean
stream should not be diverted Into the
pockets of a few but rather made to
Irrigate the fortunes of the many. And
we, the board of trade, represent the
many and not the few. Laws for fostering our resources and preserving
them should receive, and have received,
our careful attention. Anything that
makes for the good of the country and
its people Is distinctly our business.
And that Is one reason why I have always advocated an increase iu the membership of this board. Stronger now,
numerically, than ever before, we
should yet be stronger. Not only will
added membership make us stronger financially but, by making us more truly
representative, give our utterances
weight which would not otherwise be
possessed by them.
"But there remains much work yet to
be done. Besides Uie points already
touched upon for the furtherance of our
mineral Industry several things are
wanted We want roads to help out our
mines Production was hampered at
the La Plata during the year owing to
the state of the roads a road ls wanted
the state of the roads a road is wanted
toria mine, the Beasley sawmill and of
the ranchers along the Kootenay river,
AcUon hss already been taken in this
regard, but more remains to be done.
To arrive anywhere the board cannot
stop at one resolution.
"To put the sine industry upon a
firm basis the board will doubtless be
asked to take further steps in this direction. A resolution was passed asking for a gold purchasing agency to be
established at Trail, but as yet this has
not been done. The tie-up of our mining, owing to the state ol the coal Industry and the general public agitation
thereat, is a public matter that deals
directly with business strictly concerning ourselves and will doubtless demand some action being laken by the
board.
"Then, the lumber Industry demands
*' *���" '��� be carefully safeguarded. A resolution bas been passed with regard to
a duty, with the result that the dumping clauses are to be enforced, but It
ls probable that our lumber representatives will have more to say as to this.
Fire wardens, despite our reiterated
resolutions, are still a crying need. In
particular, the opening up of the Duncan River country, a matter of which
we have already taken cognizance,
with regard to the Mono-Rail company
charter, and In other dlrecUons, still
remains to be solved.
"Then as to fruit, resolutions have
been passed asking for the surveying of
lands, the appointing of further inspectors and the establishment of an experimental farm, but evidently further action ls desirable. An experimental
farm to be of avail in this district, must
be in the dlstrct itself, observations
carried out ln a different soil under differing climaUc condlUons being almost
worthless in these mountains and val-
���������"-��������� * ,___.
"Generally, the board has worked for
a reduction of the freight rates and of
the telegraph tolls, nor haa it relaxed
its efforts for the establishment of a
tourist hotel which will bring Into the
country those who want to view Been-
ery not excelled by Swltseriand, hunting favorably compared with the Amer
lug favorably comparable with the Amer
far-famed rainbow trout can be secured.
"When the general public has begun
to realize the Immensity of the resources of this upper country and the
tremendous work that lies ahead of the
Kootenay, there will be an Influx of
capital and of settlers Into this country
that will begin to place It where lt
must eventually remain���at the bead of
the Dominion. Hence the work of the
board of trade will Increase rather than
diminish, and It ls for this reason I
again urge upon Nelson the imperaUve
necessity ot helping us. This ls no
Ume to rest and lie upon our oars.
Rather, it Ib the hour for renewed effort.
"There ia a tide In the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on
to fortune."
Falsehood or Felly.
Reiterated rumors that John
Houston, late member of the legislature for Nelson, ls about to return and btand as an Independent
candidate for Ymir hare been
heard.
The Inherent Improbability of
the story caused lt to be regarded
at first aa a poor joke, but its constant repetition finally aroused
some of Mr. Houston's friends ln
Nelson to InvesUgate the truth of <
the reports.
Alderman John A. Irving, after
a diligent search, which Included
Interviews with J. J. Malone, J. A.
Gilker, Fred Bosquet, A. McDonald, Captain McMorria and J. A.
Kirkpatrick, reported today:
"I cannot find a man who has
had a line from John Houston
since the letter to Fred Bosquet
at Christmas time, nor anyone
who has sent him a cent to enable
him to come to Nelson."
John A. Kirkpatrick haa not received a congratulatory telegram
from John Houston, nor has any
one else known to him received
such a telegram.
The belief of Mr. Houston's
friends ls that either some wag
bas played a hoax on an "easy"
Dally News reporter or that The *
Daily News ls wilfully and mall-,
clously lying.
If the Dally News has any authority for the reports it haa been
sedulously spreading let lt name
"the hotel man," or any other man
who has had any direct word from
John Houston.
The statement that such a telegram as referred to has been passed around and ls familiar to all
the leading Conservatives is absolutely untrue and Its publication
cannot be justified by any street
rumor whether taken In good
faith or not.
Mining Records.
In the mining recorder's office today
bills of sale were recorded: From Peter
Desell to T. M. Ivens, a two-thirds Interest in the Red Mountain on the east

Fair Financial Treatment irom Dominion can only be had by electing liberal Government.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 10.���Great Indignation prevails among all classes at
the coast cities, Irrespective of politics,
at the astonishing threat made by Mc
lnnes, the Ottawa "machinist", to the
effect that British Columbia would
never get better terms until a Liberal
government waa put Into office. The
Colonist clearly indicates public feeling
in the matter when it saya editorially.
"According to a Vancouver despatch to
the Times Mr. Mc lnnes stated at a public meeting there that British Columbia
would never get better terms until a
Liberal Government waa put Into office���and this Ib from the chief fighting man ot the party who Introduced
the question of better terms into the
Present  political   Mmjplga
"But Mr. Mclnnes* statement la even
more slgnlflcetit than this Implies. He
has lately come from Ottawa, lie has
just resigned a lucrative office to engage In Uie election. He cornea with M ���
threat He baa ventured to tell the people of Brltlah Columbia that the price
of better terms la the supremacy of
Liberals in local politics.
"Thla Is more than we had expected.
It Introduces a new element Into tho
campaign. The tight ls no longer simply for the return to power of the present government, but a protest against Ottawa domination. The Issue la: "Shall
Brltlah Columbia be Coerced?" We call
upon every voter to ponder well what
this means. We have rights which are
entitled to consideration. No one dares
deny that; they have been admitted by
the Dominion government; they have
been admitted by all the provincial premiers. Now we are told by an emissary
from Ottawa that these rights will not
be recognised until we have dismissed
Mr. McBride from office.
"This Is a little the worst, a little the
most barefaced attempt to throttle the
voice of a free people, ot which the
political annals of Canada have any record. "Let the reply of the voters of
British Columbia be aa unmistakable
aa the threat. Let them tell Mr. Mclnnes, let them tell the people of Ottawa, who have authorised thla outrageous statement, that they value their
respect as ciUsens of British Columbia
too highly to surrender them at any
man's command.
We greatly misjudge the Liberal
party of this province it they will submit to dictation from an ex-federal official. The Issue ls not of our seeking, but the answer ls In tbe hands
of the people."
Purifier Blown Up.
New York, Jan. 11.���A despatch from
Dublin says a disastrous explosion occurred In the works of the Alliance Oaa
company yesterday. Seventeen of the
employees were Injured, some of them
so severely that they are not expected
to live. The cause of the disaster was
the fusing ot an electric wire while the
gas waa being transferred from the retort house to the purifier. The purifier
was blown up.
No Word of Ponce,
New York, Jan. 11.���The steamer
Maracas arrived this morning from
Trinidad and Grenada. She had been
delayed owing to derangement of machinery. On New Year's morning at 4

the vessel stopped for it, hours to repair. She then proceeded under reduced speed. Fine weather prevailed
throughout the trip. Officers of the
Maracas say they saw nothing of tbe

TROUBLES OF NAVIGATION.
Ice on All Interior Lakes Impedes C. P.
R. Steamers.
The C. P. K. steamer Kootenay reached Nakusp early yesterday morning
after two days' contest with the six
Inches of Ice on the Arrow lakes below
Hurton City. The ice-breaker had to
be used constantly. As the lower 20
miles of the lake enjoys almost perfect
calm, Ice forms easily, and with a boat
service every third day It is impossible
to keep the channel open. In consequence the C. P. R. will not guarantee
the delivery of mail, freight, passengers or express below Burton City.
The steamer will continue her Monday and Thursday trips, going as far
south as the Ice will permit below Burton City. The shore Ice furnishes an
excellent road for the use of the settlers living below the lowest point
reached by the boat, and ihey should
have no difficulty in making connections.
The unusual duration of the present
cold spell Is causing some trouble on
all the lakes. Ice has to be broken
constantly at Arrowhead and the tug
Columbia has been put Into commission
to break Ice and help In the freight
transfer. At Kootenay Landing about
half a mile of Ice has to be broken every morning before the Kuskanook can
make dock. On Trout Lake the Procter
Is making special trips to keep the
channel open, though there Ib less ice
than usual. At Pentlcton, for the first
time since 1896, the shore ice, piling
up at the lower end of Okanagan lake,
Is causing trouble. At Kelowna the
thermometer has registered 19 degrees
below zero. At Robson Genelle's mill
lug ls keeping a channel open with difficulty. On Slocan lake the weight of
the ice forming on the paddles and bull
la bothering the boat aud keeping the
crew busy.
WIECH NEAR WARDNER
Freight Train  Collision���Brakeman  A.
L. Chapell   Killed���Five  Accidents
Within a Week.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.) ..
Cranbrook, Jan. 11.���The C. P. R. Is
having a most distressing series of accidents during the present week. Since
Monday five wrecks or collisions of one
kind or another have occurred at Brock-
el, Burdette, McGlllivray, Dunmore
Junction, and now the fifth ls reported
at a point about two miles easl of
Wardner. It appears that Engineer
Klllens was taking back to Cranbrook
the engine that had run Into the local
at McGlllivray. This engine was In the
centre of his train and on account of
Its condition he had orders not to proceed faster than ten miles au hour.
This morning about 5 o'clock a freight
train which was following him got by
mistake a hurry-up order and dashed
Into the rear of Klllens' train. The
brakeman, A. L. Chappell, was killed.
His body, dreadfully mutilated, lies
here ln Ueatty's undertaking parlor.
Engineer Klllens Is In the hospital, as
Is also his fireman. Conductor Mcllur-
ney was badly shaken but was able to
go home. The line at Wardner Is badly
torn up and strewn with wreckage. Iu
fact, the line from Dunmore Junction
lo Wardner Is wholly disorganized as
tlie result of the various accidents. The
No. 5 westbound pasenger, due here nt
10:15 Is cancelled and may not nrilvs
for the next 24 hours or more. Tho
depth of the snow and the extreme severity of the weather adds considerably
to the difficulty of dealing with nn
acute situation.
EXHORT8 TO PATIENCE.
Pope's Encyclical to French Catholics
Counsels Peace,
Rome, Jan. 11.���The Osscrvatore Romano today published the text of an
Important encyclical addressed hy the
pope to the French Catholics. In this
document lhe pontiff said that his chief
abject In addressing the faithful I"
Prance was to comfort them In their
Bufferings, which he felt deeply. There
was, however, great consolation in the
fact that the Catholics of Fiance wen*
united. The French government's dec
laration of war was not only against
the Christian faith, but against all spiritual ideas. The French Cothollcs must
be prepared for all sorts of trials, but
Ihey are certain of final victory. This
meant the maintenance of their union
with the holy see, which was of greater
Importance, as shown by the efforts of
the enemies of the church lo dissolve
this union. Contrary to statements
made on the subject the church did not
desire a religious war, involving violent
persecution. Being a- messenger of
peace and carrying out her mission loyally, the church did not willingly expose herself to war and persecutions
as she did not desire to see her children suffering.
Regarding the ecclesiastical proper-
erties tbe encyclical says the pope has
not abandoned them. The French government has Imposed upon French
Catholics an organization which the
church was unable to accept without
Imperilling Its existence as a divine
institution. The statement that the
government daposed of the abandoned
properties of the church was adding
derision to spoliation. It was false to
state that tbe pontiff condemned ln
France what he approved ip Germany,
as the Germaen agricultural associations were merely tolerated, although
they recognized the hierarchy, which
was not done In France. The new bill
amending the separation law of 1905
was simply a law of confiscation and In
regard to the exercise of public worship lt was an anarchlal measure
Therefore, the people condemned It. In
conclusion the pope appealed to the
judgment of history, which, he said, will
recognize that the papacy does not wish
to humiliate any officials or oppose any
government, but defended the work of
the divine Founder of the church, demanding "respect for the hierarchy and
the inviolability of Hb properly and
liberty."
Alberta Cattle Safe.
Chlnooks Sweep Snow  From  Foothills
and   Afford   Needed   Pasturage   -
Lethbrldge, Alta., Jan. 10.���Thc temperature has taken a warm turn, the
mercury being at 34 degrees Ihis morning, and has been steadily rising since.
A cblnook is blowing up and the ranchers' hearts are being gladdened by the
prospects for snow bolng off, and the
ground being uncovered for starving
herds. Many large ranchers here, interviewed today, state that the cattle
that have so far succumbed were only
the weakest and that if the warm spell
holds, the prospects are good that the
ultimate loss ln annuals would not be
very considerable. Reports from all directions state, however, that the ranges
are strewn with dead animals.
Calgary, Alta., Jan. 10.���Tonight the
Calgary Baseball club appointed P. P.
Tyman of Lowell, Mass., as manager.
The team will meet and report at Boston April 18, and will, on their way to
Calgary, play exhibition games ln New
Hampshire, Vermont, Masacbusetts,
New York and other states.
Cattle in tho vicinity of Calgary suffered little from cold. Reports of cattle dying between here and Medicine
Hat have been greatly exaggerated.
Cattle fared comparatively well ln McLeod district. The weather is moderating and the trouble is over.
The Bell Telephone company have
wired promising better Bervice if the
city wnits a while. There ls little
doubt now but that the service will be
complete soon.
Calgary bank clearings for the week
ending January 10 are $1,278,369.
A municipal convention at Red Deer
resolved that the government should
own long distance telephone lines and
municipalities should own the local
systems.

WHOLESOME^OPTIHISM
Address of President Starkey, of Board
of Trade, Reflects General Prosperity of Kootenay.
Lack of space unfortunately precludes the printing In full of the annual report of President Starkey of the
board of trade, which is referred to
briefly elsewhere in this Issue. But
thc following extracts on the general
situation and on the future work to be
accomplished by the board are too good
to be omitted:
"Gentlemen: I have to congratulate
you as representatives of the chief city
of the Interior of this province, Justly
considered as potentially the most
wealthy of all the parts of this great
Dominion of ours, on the record of the
past year. I am of the opinion that In
time to come 1906 will be regarded as
the pnrtlng of the ways, the dawn of
the new prosperity which ls soon to
make Ihe Kootenay a beacon to all settlers, the cynosure of a world-wide empire aud a home never to be deserted
by those who come among us.
"The mineral Industry we havo had
since the beginnings of tho Kootenay
but never was it more prosperous than
In thc year just ended. The lumber,
clothing Ihe long slopes of our mountains, covering up many a fertile valley; timber that not so long since was
regarded of such little worth that Its
wholesale destruction by fire hardly
evoked comment, Ib now ln greater demand than ever. Many now mills have
come Inlo exlstonce during 1906 and
yet larger mills are planned for 1907,
while the demand is such that no lumber reserve can be maintained. And
as the land ls cleared of timber, so the
soil beneath becomes available for orchard purposes. Kootenay fruit has established s reputation in the best markets of the world. The demand for It
ls so great that years will elapse be
fore the newly-planted trees will be
able to supply even the figures of the
demand ot the present, while there Is
little prospect, in view of tbe population now flocking into Canada, and the
respect and admiration our fruit products obtain ln the old country, that
the demand will ever fall below the
supply. , The prospect before our lumber ls equally good. As the Northwest
builds up Its population tbe demand for
many years to come will be far ln excess of the supply of Eastern British
Columbia. Indeed, the time ls already
foreshadowed when British Columbia,
like Europe, especially France and Germany, or like India, will not only have
to take steps for the preservation of its
forests, aa at present, but will also be
obliged to institute a department, as
in those countries, for the perpetual
conservation of timber and Umber land.
"Regarding the first of our products,
our minerals, although the prices are
unprecedently high, yet there Is little
likelihood of overproduction, for the
enterprise of the Trail smelter has
opened the market of the Orient to the
Kootenay, a market infinitely larger
than that of Canada The awakening
of China and its entry into the prosecution of large Industrial undertakings,
it being a silver-using country, haB created a demand for silver and, ln fact,
the banks of China, foreign and native,
have placed on the coast indefinite demands for silver, although tbe first
shipment (200,000 ounces) made from
Seattle Is only five yeara old. So with
copper. Its use ln various Industries ls
yearly growing and certainly ao far
has kept ahead of the supply. Again,
as copper Is mostly found ln comparatively small percentages lt can only be
mined, as ln the Boundary, In Rossland,
ln the Queen Victoria, near Nelson, on
a large scale, thus meaning not only
the importation of large capital but
the employment of hundreds of men.
Indeed, by far the chief employers of
labor In the Kootenay are the copper
mines.
"But, gentlemen, although these
things cannot be said to be tbe work
of the board of trade, being the results
of tbe working of the natural facts of
supply and demand, yet lt Ib supremely
our business In the future, as it has
been ln the past���the very reason of
our useful existence���to see that we
carefully note our assets and conalder
thc manner in which they may be best
expl.sited. The rise of these Industries
give birth to new conditions which
nm it be v atched by us. This Pactolean
stream should not be diverted into the
pockets of a few but rather made to
irrigate the fortunes of the many. And
we, the board of trade, represent the
many and not the few. Laws for fostering our resources and preserving
them should receive, and have received,
our careful attention. Anything that
makes for the good of the country and
its people is distinctly our business.
And that is one reason why I have always advocated an Increase In the membership of this board. Stronger now,
numerically, than ever before, we
should yet be stronger. Not only will
added membership make us stronger financially but, by making us more truly
representative, give our utterances
weight which would not otherwise be
possessed by them.
"But there remains much work yet to
be done. Besides the points already
touched upon for the furtherance of our
mineral industry several things are
wanted We want roads to help out our
mines Production was hampered at
tbe La Plata during the year owing to
the state of the roads a road is wanted
the Btate of the roads a road is wanted
toria mine, the Beasley sawmill and of
the ranchers along the Kootenay river,
Action has already been taken ln this
regard, but more remains to be done.
To arrive anywhere the board cannot
stop at one resolution.
"To put the zinc Industry upon a
firm basis the board will doubtless be
asked to take further steps ln this direction. A resolution was passed asking for a gold purchasing agency to be
established at Trail, but as yet this has
not been done. The tie-up of our mining, owing to the state of the coal Industry and the general public agitation
thereat, Is a public matter that deals
directly with business strictly concerning ourselves and will doubtless demand some action being taken by the
board.
"Then, tho lumber Industry domands
*-'������>' '��� be carefully safeguarded. A resolution haa been passed with regard to
a duty, with the result tbat the dumping clauses are to be enforced, but lt
Is probable that our lumber representatives will have more to say aa to this.
Fire wardens, despite our reiterated
resolutions, are still a crying need. In
particular, the opening up of the Duncan River country, a matter of whlcb
we have already taken cognizance,
with regard to the Mono-Rail company
charter, and in other directions, atill
remains to be solved.
"Then as to fruit, resolutions have
been passed asking for the surveying of
lands, the appointing of further Inspectors and the establishment of an experimental farm, but evidently further action is desirable. An experimental
farm to be of avail in this district, must
be ln the dlstrct Itself, observations
carried out ln a different soil under differing climatic conditions being almost
worthless In these mountains and val-
lej,s* *    i      ,___.
"Generally, the board bas worked for
a reduction of the freight rates and of
the telegraph tolls, nor has it relaxed
its efforts for the establishment of a
tourist hotel which will bring Into the
country those who want to view scenery not excelled by Switzerland, hunting favorably compared with the Amer-
lng favorably comparable with the Amer
far-famed rainbow trout can be secured.
"When the general public haa begun
to realize the immensity of the resources of this upper country and th*
tremendous work that lies ahead of the
Kootenay, there will be an Influx of
capital and of settlers Into this country
that will begin to place lt where it
must eventually remain���at the head of
the Dominion. Hence the work of the
board of trade will increase rather than
diminish, and lt ls for this reason I
agaiu urge upon Nelson the imperative
necessity of helping us. This ls no
time to rest and He upon our oars.
Rather, it ia the hour for renewed effort.
"There ls a tide In the affairs of men
Which, taken at tbe flood, leads on
to fortune."
Falsehood or Folly.
Reiterated rumors that John
Houston, late member of the legislature for Nelson, is about to return and stand as an Independent
candidate for Ymir have been
beard.
Tbe inherent Improbability of
the story caused It to be regarded
at first aa a poor joke, but Ub constant repetition finally aroused
some of Mr. Houston's friends ln
Nelson to Investigate the truth of
the reports.
Alderman John A. Irving, after
a diligent search, which Included
Interviews with J. J, Malone, J. A.
Gilker, Fred Bosquet, A. McDonald, Captain McMorris and J. A.
Kirkpatrick, reported today:
"I cannot find a man who haa
had a line from John Houston
since the letter to Fred Bosquet
at Christmas time, nor anyone
who haa sent him a cent to enable
him to come to Nelson."
John A. Kirkpatrick haa not received a congratulatory telegram
from John Houston, nor haa any
one else known to him received
such a telegram.
The belief of Mr. Houston's
friends ls that either some wag
haa played a hoax on an "easy"
Daily Newa reporter or that The
Daily News ls wilfully and mall*,
clously lying.
If the Dally News has any authority for the reports It baa been
sedulously spreading let it name
"the hotel man," or any other man
wbo has had any direct word from
John Houston.
The statement that such a telegram as referred to has been passed around and Is familiar to all
the leading Conservatives Ib absolutely untrue and Its publication
cannot be justified by any street
rumor whether taken ln good
faith or not.
Mining Records.
In the mining recorder's office today
bills of sale were recorded: From Peter
Deaell to T. M. Ivens, a two-thirds Interest In the Red Mountain on the cast
slope of Five-Mile creek, consideration
|1; from F. T. Morrison to J. J. Malone,

Fair Financial Treatment from Dominion on only be had by electing Liberal Government.
(Special to Th* Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 10.���Great Indignation prevails among all claaaes at
the coast cities, irrespective of politics,
at the astonishing threat made by MC
lnnes, the Ottawa "machinist", to the
elfect that British Columbia, would
never get better terms until a Liberal
government waa put into office. The
Colonist clearly indicate* public feeling
ln the matter when It aaya editorially,
"According to a Vancouver despatch to
the Times Mr. Mc lnnes stated at a public meeting there that Brltlah Columbia
would never get better terms until a
Liberal Government waa put Into office���and this ls from the chief fighting man of the party who Introduced
the question of better terms Into the
present political campaign.
"But Mr. Mclnnes' statement ia even
more significant than thla implies. Ha
haa lately come from Ottawa. He has
Just resigned a lucrative office to engage in the election. He cornea with ���
threat He hat ventured to tell the people of Brltlah Columbia that the price
of better terms la the supremacy of
Liberals in local politics.
"Thla Is more than we had expected.
It Introduces a new element into the
campaign. The fight ia no longer aim-
ply for tbe return to power of the present government, but a protest against Ottawa domination. The Issue ls: "Shall
British Columbia be Coerced?" We call
upon every voter to ponder well what
this means. We have rights wblch are
entitled to consideration. No one dare*
deny that; they have been admitted by
the Dominion government; they bave
been admitted by all the provincial premiers. Now we are told by an emissary
from Ottawa that these right* will not
be recognised until we have dismissed
Mr. McBride from office.
"This is a Uttle the worst, a little the
moat barefaced attempt to throttle the
voice of a free people, of which the
political annals of Canada have any record. "L��t the reply of the voters of
British Columbia be as unmistakable
as the threat. Let them tell Mr. Mclnnes, let them tell the people of Ottawa, who have authorised thla outrageous statement, that they value their
respect as dtliens of British Columbia
too highly to surrender them at any
man's command.
We greatly misjudge the Liberal
party of this province if they will submit to dictation from an ex-federal official. The Issue is not ot our seeking, but the answer is in the handa
of the people."
Purifier Blown Up.
New York, Jan. 11.���A despatch from
Dublin says a disastrous explosion occurred In the works of the Alliance Osa
company yesterday. Seventeen of tbe
employees were injured, some of them
so severely that they are not expected
to live. The cause of the disaster was
the fusing of an electric wire while the
gas was being transferred from the retort house to the purifier. The purifier
was blown up.
No Word of Pones.
New York, Jan. 11.���The steamer
Maracas arrived this morning from
Trinidad and Grenada. She had been
delayed owing to derangement of machinery. On New Year's morning at 4
a. m. a circulating pump gave out, and
the veaael stopped for 3s* hours to repair. She then proceeded wider reduced speed. Fine weather prevailed
throughout the trip. Officers of the
Maracas say tbey saw nothing of the
belated steamer Ponce.

The address of Fred A. Starkey, president of the Nelson hoard of trade, extracts from which nre published in this
issue, makt's good reading:. Hoards of
trade are known lo the peneral public
chiefly hy their grievances. Their
chief function is the advocacy of needed improvemenUs and reforms and removal of all conditions lhat retard development and growth. This function
has been faithfully performed liy the
Nelson hoard during the year ending
lost night, and a large share cd' the
credit is to lhe persistent efforts of
President Slarkey himself. Hut in his
annua] report there is little mention of
the difficulties and discouragements,
beyond an appeal for increased membership, which should meet with a general and immediate response. The address is a glowing account of difficulties surmounted, results achieved- and
the path Io prosperity opened for all.
It Is the address of n husiness man to
business men. Its authorlan enthusiastic
champion of Nelson and Kootenay i was
probably, in fact obviously, unconscious
of any possible application nf his address to the present political situation.
It was aeelainied and endorsed unanimously by a board which, as such,
I-:nows no party divisions or preference's But it is hard to conceive of a more
Ihorough-going endorsement of the
claim, mado on behalf of the McHrlde
government, that their tenure of office
and their acts���and also In some- cas^s
their* refraining from action���have resulted in restoring to the province a
prosperity to which for many years it
had been unaccustomed. To what is
the present prosperous condition of the
mining industry due?   Those who re
member ihe beginnings of depression
in the mining industry of Kootenay
know that it was not due solely, nor
even chiefly, to tho passing of the
Sight Hour Law, nor to the miners'
strike, hut to the impression created in
the minds of capitalists everywhere
ihat Hritish Columbia was entering upon a period of experimental legislation,
and that stability of conditions and
continuity of policy could not be hoped
for. That impression has been removed. The province has derived a fair
revenue from the mineral resources hy
the impartial operation of the mineral
tax, and meanwhile the industry has
been left undisturbed. In all other industries, too, the knowledge born of experience that thc scales of justice
would be held evenly as between capital and labor has restored that confidence that is the life-blood of industrial
enterprise. It is not to be expected
that a non-partizan body like a hoard of
trade should record its appreciation of
the i>olicy of a iiarty government, but
the unanimous endorsement of President Starkey's remarks is a magnificent
tribute to the administration of the
province during the last three years.
The acceptance hy J. Fred Hume, ex-
minister'of mines, of the Liberal nomination tor Ymir, came as a surprise to
many in Nelson. As on ex-minister and
tho only one among the Liberal candidates in the province with any cabinet
experience, except Smith Curtis, whose
tenure of office was of a few weeks" duration, \V. C. Wells, wbo is understood
to take now only an academic interest
in politics, and the insignificant exception of ex-Attorney General Alex Henderson���Mr. Hume might fairly expect
to be a member of the cabinet in the
remotely possible -event of a Liberal victory. That being the case it was expected that, IT Mr. Hume cared to reenter the political arena he would stand
for Nelson, his old seat and an important city constituency. It is common
knowledge that lie was urged to do so
by bis friends. In fact, the second nomination of Dr. Hall in open meeting
was made at the demand of the party
for the express purpose of providing
an opportunity for the nomination of
Mr. Hume. Several Liberals presumed
to be "In the know" stated openly on
the day of the ratification meeting that
Mr. Hume would he tendered lhe nomination.    F. M. Black admitted at the
meeting that lie had expected there
would he a division. When Mr. Hume
"called off" his friends and left the
field open to Dr. Hall it was taken for
grained lhat he was out of polities for
good. It may he frankly conceded that
the Conservatives of Nelson were glad
of his decision, as he would certainly
have heen a more formidable opponent
ihan Dr. Hall, who, though an estimable
citizen and deservedly popular, is without political experience except in an
unfortunate effort which left him third
out of three candidates. Hut whatever
chance Mr. Hume might have had in
Nelson, he will have none in Ynilr,
where his candidature will be rightly
iniertireted as a chivalrous sacrifice on
behalf of his party, which could find
no candidate resident in the district
Who could hope even to save his deposit.
LATEST REVISED LIST OF PROVINCIAL CANDIDATES
Constituency.
Liberal.
Tho threat of the new provincial loader, Willie Mclnnes, the plastic too] of
the Ottawa machine, that Hritish Columbia's chances of obtaining justice in
the matter of subsidies depend upon
the province's apostasy to Liberalism,
Is the most flagrant and impudent piece
of wholesale political corruption ever
attempted in Hritish Columbia. It Is
the curse of party government that men
and constituencies ex*pect reward for
the exercise of their franchise, but never before in the history of Canada, nor
of any other country enjoying constitutional and democratic government has
there been anything like the unblushing
operation of a system of rewards and
punishments that has heen in operation since Sir Wilfrid Laurier became
premier of Canada. The pecuniary rewards to convicted criminals like "Hug-
t he-Machine" Preston, disgusting as
they are, are venial compared with the
bribery of a constituency or of a whole
province. All students of Canadian political history will remember the storm
of indignant resentment, from Liberals
and Conservatives alike, that arose in
1897, when the late A. S. Hardy, then
premier of Ontario, on behalf of Sir
Wilfrid, invited the electors of Simcoe
cotmly to choose between "the warm
sympathy extended to a friendly con-
slituency and lhe cold justice meted
out to those represented by opposition
members." Flagrant and unpardonable
as was Mr. Hardy's offence, his successors have outdone him. The unorganized territory lying along the northern
line of the provinces has been parcelled
out generously to Quebec, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Their provincial governments are Liberal. Ontario and
Manitoba have stronger claims than
any and are in a better position to administer additional territory. Hut their
local governments are Conservative.
Their representatives are "promised
careful consideration." But this last
brazen message of Willie Mclnnee is
the climax of the whole series of shameless "hold-ups," The righteousness of
Hritish Columbia's claim has been admitted hy Sir Wilfrid Laurier and W.
8. Fielding, and endorsed by J. A. Macdonald. Now the province it told, in
the style and with the effrontery of
the professional blackmailer, that the
price it must pay for its rights is the
surrender or political freedom aud honor. Sir Wilfrid has mistaken the spirit
of the West, as his hirelings will discover on February 2.

For three years and a half the Liberals have been condemning In unmeasured terms the alleged understanding between Mr. McHrlde and tbe
Socialists. The brunt of the attack
has of course fallen upon the Conservatives for allowing their measures to
be supported by the Sociallsls���those
enemies of the human race! The "red
flag of anarchy" has done duty In every Liberal speech, "special correspondence," and editorial during these
three bitter years. How sincere those
declamations have been and are may
be judged after consideration of two
facts; the chief arguments of those who
contended in Liberal caucuses for the
nomination of Dr. Hall was that he
stood well with the workingmen; that
becauso of his professional relations
with the C. P. H. and smelter employees
he would "pull" many votes lhat might
otherwise be caBt for a* Socialist candidate. It was even believed hy not a
few that Dr. Hall as a Liberal candidate would not he opposed liy a Socialist. Hut tbe other and later Instance
is an even more glaring proof of the
Utter insincerity of the Liberal professions of lofty contempt for the Socialists. It has dawned on the little group
that placed A. H. Docksteader in the
field In Slocan that in a three-cornered
contest he has no hope of saving his
deposit. It Is now openly admitted by
Slocan Liberals that Mr. Docksteader
will be withdrawn and that the Liberal vote will he cast, for the Socialist
in an effort to defeat the Conservative
candidate, William Hunter. In this connection it will, of course, be remembered that in 1903 Mr. Hunter was defeated by the combined Libernl and Socialist vole cast for Mr. Davidson.

NELSON, B. C.
The first serious attempt at criticism
of the actions of the McUride govern
ment by the opposition press is the article on the continuance of the Columbia & Western railway land grant, contained in the Daily News of this morning's date. The premier's statement,
which is quoted, really covers the
whole ground. The company's strict
legal title to the land in question had
lapsed. The same thing has happened
once or more than once in the history
of every railway corporation in Canada.
t'nder the circumstances the refusal to
continue thai subsidy would have
amounted to an act of confiscation. If
Mr. Macdonald and the Daily News advocate the adoption of such a policy,
let them have the courage to
say so frankly. Rut Mr. Macdonald already stands convicted of insincerity.
He rose iu virtuous indignation over
even a reference to a court of equity
of the Midway & Vernon Railway company's title to a renewal of their charter. That company had allowed its
whole time to elapse without making a
pretence of beginning work, and in a
territory where other companies were
offering to build. The C. P. R., successor to tbe Columbia __ Western, had
built half, and at the time the mose-
ueeded half, of their road, they had
built half, and at the time the most-
other company would take chances
then. Their moral right to renewal of
the subsidy could not be soberly disputed by any one who championed the
Midway & Vernon unless his reason and
conscience have become the mute servants of party prejudice.
The "fairly non-party man" who
wants to know the real situation in the
office of the lands and works department is recommended to ask G. O. Buchanan. Probably even the Daily News
will not accuse Mr. Huchanan of Conservative prejudices. On his return
from his last trip to the coast, Mr. Huchanan expressed his opinion of the office in question. He made no request
for secrecy, but his statement, was not
quoted at the time because such testimony seemed unnecessary. No attack
had then ever been made upon the efficiency of that department since 1901..
Mr. Huchanan, who is ever on the side
of truth as hz Bees It, will not object
to having his words quoted to refute a
slander. He said: "You may say for
me, from my own experience, that lhe
department of lands and works is administered cleanly, Impartially and efficiently." The Daily News may be left
to its own devices. All reasonable men
are invited to judge between the candid statement of au intelligent and honorable opponent and the ignorant criticism of an anonymous speaker���who
possibly has no real existence.
Is the Dally News making fun of
Willie Mclnnes, or has It really no
sense of humor? If it wants to cover
the foolish young man with ridicule It
cannot do so more effectively than by
printing excerpis from his speeches at.
"great Liberal meetings, in which Willie explains to an audience, which we
hope is duly interested, why he gave un
his job" in Dawson to take on a "job"
for the Dominion government in Victoria. Willie's reference lo "my early
manhood" is delicious. Hn is now about
Xi years old, and his friends still explain the amazing folly of his public utterances as the exuberance of
youth.
A "fairly non-party man"���the expression is hardly English, but the
meaning may bo guessed���is undoubtedly the same as Mr, How-ls-this, of Wednesday, and, presumably, also the gentleman by whom '*it Is said." He is a
convenient person to make statements
for which no reputable citizen could be
quoted.
So far the whole Liberal appeal consists in n feelde "Hoorah" for the great
James Analytical Macdonald. and tbe
Great Willie Wind Bag Mclnnes,
