���J.   H.  Schofield'a  Visit.
(Special Correspondence.)
A very enthusiastic meeting of Creston Conservatives was held iu Speers'
hall last Saturday night. Kd. Mallun-
daiue occupied the chair and after
stating the reason for calling the meeting requested J. H. Schotield, M. L. A.,
to address the meeting.
Mr. Schotield on rising was greeted
wilh much applause and in a rather
brief hut very brief and concise
Speech gave a resume of the proceedings of the late session of the house,
touching uikiu and explaining the various bill which hud beeu passed. He
also outlined what hud been done for
his district generally and more particularly for this portion of the Ymir constituency. Tho member wus listened
to wilh close attention and his views
and the result of bis efforts were most
satisfactorily   received.
Mr. Schofield when questioned explained several items of local importance to the satisfaction of the questioners und ii;.mi resuming his seat
was cheered to the echo.
Several others then addressed the
meeting after which the annual meeting of the Creston Conservative Association   was  proceeded  with.
The following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: Hon. President,
Ed. Mallandalne. J. P.; president, R. J.
Long: vice-president, Q. W. Benney;
secretary, Jas. Coinpton; executive committee, F. G. Little. N. S. Watson, G.
Huscroft, J. Cook.
A unanimous vote of thanks with
cheers was passed to the chairman who
replied in a neat speech, after which
tin' meeting adjourned.
The meeting was probably the largest
Conservative meeting ever held In Creston and from the quiet spirit of enthusiasm which pervaded its harmonious proceedings it augurs well for
good, straight parly line work In this
portion of the  Ymir constituency.

Otlawa, March 23.���The people of
Canada pay $900,000 a year for immigration, while thu cost ln 190G was
tl 20,000. We pay $250,000 to $300,000
a year for immigiatiou printing and
advert Isiug alone, a large pan of the
money goiug lo subsidize the party-
press. A vast army of party campaigners aud discredited politicians are
iu lhe pay of lhe Immigration depart-
menL How some of them earn their
money ls shown by a return which Mr.
Clement, of West Kent, has secured
lrom the government. Some time ago
Mr. Clement referred tu James S-
Waugh, an active party worker, who
ln oil times, is paid $2 per head lor
locating Immigrant farm laborers with
the Kent farmers. Mr. Clemeut charged thai this agent received bonuses
ou numerous immigrants who did not
remain with the man who hired them,
and ou many who never went to work
at all. This charge was contradicted
by Liocrul members, the department
defending this ageut and others receiving like commissions for like alleged
Official returns now produced support Mr. Clement's charge. They show
that Mr. Waugh was paid $1,256 for
placing 028 farm laborers' on land ln
West Kent. Many of these were married men, wilh families, and the agent
got $2 each for the lot. He put ln 205
claims for families or single persons
representing the 02d Individuals. After
Mr. Clement's charges were made the
superintendent of immigration undertook lo prove that they were unfounded, hy writing to tbe persons represent-
ted by Mr. Waugh as having employed these 205 iarm hands. Down to the
time tlie return was made up he had
received 117 answers. Following ls a
summary of the statements made concerning these farm workers;
Number engaged and found more or
less   satisfactory 23
Number not found  satisfactory 20
Number   not   farm   laborers   but  employed as mechanics 17
Number who went to work and  quit

Number engaged but refused to go to

as to a family of 5, and 11 sixth as to

received $2 per head.
One farm laborer quit at once because he waB too far from the city ($8

In a lumbef yard and quit ($8 commission), another ($0) works In a paint
shop, one Is employed as a baker, one
in" a plasterer, one as a gas fitter, one
us a unison, several ns bricklayers,
one on the railway, several at making
pavement, and a large number are reported to bo Idle, destitute and public charges nt Chatham nnd elsewhere.
The result of Mr. Clement's charge
and the Investigation Is that the agent
has been asked too refund the pay
received for 279 of his so-called farm
laborers. < *TO
Yukon documents produced last week
show how the matter stands regarding
the  charges of Immorality und corrup
tion made by Rev. Dr. Prlngle the well
known Presbyterian clergyman. Dr.
Prlngle ls a strong Liberal, and. therefore a few years ago appealed with
confidence to Sir Wilfrid Laurler to order an Investigation Into charges which
he brought against leading Yukon officers. One of these he accused of living ln open vice and of flagrant election fraud and conspiracy. Another be
declared to be addicted to shameless
debaucheries aud indecencies. After repeated protests and many detailed
statements from Dr. Prlngle the government at Ottawa appointed Commissioner Henderson to investigate. But
the premier did not comply with Mr.
Piiugle's demand that the Judge be
given power to examine the witnesses
on oath, and to compel their attendance, though the reverend accuser refused to prosecute his charges uniesB
this were done. So the charges remain
untried and the officials are still ln control. Dr. Prlngle ia well known, at
least throughout the Presbyterian enures of Canada, and thousands will judge
whether he ls the person to make
and repeat year after year unfounded
charges of this character.
The mysterious Imperial Pulp Company, whose double cheques for timber
leases are always a little above the
next highest leader, while one cheque
is a traction higher than the third
tender, has an imitator. Inquiry reveals an exactly similar condition respecting tenders by T. A. Burrows, M.
P., brother-in-law of Mr. Sifton. Mr.
Burrows also has the habit of tendering without mentioning amounts, enclosing cheques to be taken as his tender. He also sends ln two or more
cheques, and in his case also the two
together happen to be a little over
the next highest man, while one of
them would give him the limit if the
next man had failed to come ln.
Here are some instances:
Berth 1046, D. R. Fraser offered.$3,015
James  A.   Powell 1,610
On top of these came the letter of
Burrows with two cheques, one of $3,-
000 and one of $600. The $500 cheque
brought   the  offer  above  Fraser's   bid.
Berth   1047,  Mc; -onald bid $13,524
M'licheuliache  . .   ., 5,510
Hough.'. 4,050
T. A. Burrows' got the limit by sending three cheques of $6,000, $5,000 and
$4,000. The $5,000 would have got
the limit from Hough; the $6,000 would
have taken It from the third man; all
three were required to get above McDonald.
Berth 1099, Blaln bid $3,300
Thompson 5,110
Burrows came in with two cheques,
one for $3,600, or a little above Main,
and another of $3,000, the two together beating Thompson.

Liege, $138,270 at Dublin.
Messrs. Martin, Lefurgey and McLean, Conservative members from
Prince Edward Island, had something
to say to the government on tho question of winter communication. They
forcibly reminded the premier of his
positive promise concerning the tunnel
and   of   other   broken   engagements.

existing between the two countries.

Impression. Gathered on  Eastern Trip
���Nelson Boys In Toronto.
F. M. Black returned Saturday night
after an extended tour of the eastern
provinces and states which included
Calgary, Winnipeg, St. Paul, Chicago,
Washington, New York, Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Toronto and Lindsay.
The chief result to Mr. Black of his
tour and the Impressions gathered from
it ls that he ls now firmly resolved to
remain a citizen of British Columbia.
He Is convinced now that the Pacific
province ln spite of remoteness from
centres of population offers, all these
things considered, the best field for endeavor.
In Chicago he met Miss Agnes Deans
Cameron, formerly of the Victoria public schools teaching staff, who ls engaged ln journalistic work, and, according to her colleagues, Is "making good"
in her new profession.
In Toronto he met Fred Lorlng and
Norman Stewart, graduates of Nelson
high school, who are now two of Nelson's five representatives at Toronto
University, the others being Miss Geral-
dlne Brown and Willie Brown, and
Eddie Wallace. They are all members
of a Western Association formed at the
While ln Toronto Mr. Black also had
Ihe pleasure of hearing William Jennings Bryan's address. He says that In
Washington and New York he found
evidences of a growing conviction that
Mr. Bryan can defeat any Republican
candidate but  President Roosevelt.
Mr. Black looks very well after his
trip, and announces himself glad to be
back In Nelson.

Gold Commissioner Harry Wright.
R. Helm, of the Dominion Express
company, who with Fred H. Smith, has
been Inspecting the company's service
ln Spokane, was registered at the Hume
last night.
Fred Starkey arrived home last night
after about three weeks of campaigning
in Alberta and reports entire success.
Firmly convinced that the most vital
question to Kootenay at the present
time Is the maintenance of the silver-
lead mining industry, that It can only
be maintained by ensuring a stable
minimum price for lead, and that the
issue affects not only the owners ot
such mines and their employees but
every element of the population of
Kootenay, and also ot other parte of
the Canadian west intimately connected with Kootenay commercially, Mr.
Starkey decided to seek support for the
movement from outside the district.
The request of the lead mine owners
had already been endorsed by the Nelson board of trade, the associated
boards of trade and the executive of
the Liberal Conservative Association ot
.\elson. But the object sought is ot
very great importance in other places
besides Nelson and Kootenay. The Interior of British Columbia ls the best
market for many of the products ot
Alberta, and a contraction ot the demand ln that market would mean serious loss.
With this in view, to show the Dominion government that the benefits
sought were not merely local, an appeal
was made to the people ot Alberta to
assist in securing what will be a great
boon to them.
Mr. Starkey left Nelson three weeks
ago. Since then he has visited Edmonton, Strathcona, Wetaskiwin, Red Deer,
Calgary, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and
Macleod. In all his plan of campaign
was the same, a conference with the
leading business men, a business like
statement of the case, then a meeting
of the board of trade and an appeal for
endorsement of the petition already
sent from Nelson. In every place he
was entirely successful, and by unanimous resolutions of the various boards
of trade, the petition for a renewal of
the lead bounty and the raising of the
minimum price per long ton from ��16
to ��18, was endorsed in full, and the
resolutions of endorsement were wired
at once to the  Dominion government.
Although his trip was necessarily
hurried and his time pretty fully taken
up Mr. Starkey noted several features
common to the fast growing towns of
What struck him first was the uniform excellence of school buildings,
and the evidence ot ungrudging support for schools.
Another conspicuous feature was the
amount of money given everywhere to
organisations formed for advertising
the district. Tbe Alberta towns, Mr.
Starkey says, are ambitious like Nelson, they have spent money liberally
for schools, streets and other necessities, and they want more people to enjoy them and help to pay for them.

Monday,  March 23,  1908.
Mr. Fielding, Dominion minister of
finance, has recently presented to parliament his annual statement of revenue
and expenditure, and his estimates of
both for the coming year, the annual
budget as ll is usually called.
Except when there Is some vital issue of material importance, upon which
party, creed or faction feelings ure
strongly excited tht- budget is the most
important feature of the parliamentary
programme. Happily there have been
very few of such issues since Confederation; the l'acific scandal, the
National Policy, the Dual Language
bill, the Jesuits' Estates Act, and Ihe
.Manitoba Remedial hill almost make up
the number. It is noteworthy and matter for national gratification that all
but one of tbe Issues mentioned were
Short-lived and have left little or no
trace behind. The Pacific Scandal cosl
the Conservative party five years of
office, and cost Canada five years of
feeble administration and industrial
and commercial stagnation, but it has
left no sting. The Dual Language system, the Jesuits' Estates and the Remedial bill all dealt with the problem
created hy original acts of the Imperial
parliament that practically amount to a
treaty with the French Canadian people. The three episodes do not Indicate
any consistent policy, and it may be
that future trouble may coinu from that
source, but on the whole the spirit of
the treaty has not been violated, and
until a fresh issue has to be met, it is I
as well that those three chapters of our"
history   should   be  forgotten.
The only issue that has ever been a
vital one, that might be expected to
survive, is the National Policy, the issue between Protection and Free Imports. Strange to say, this is the deadest of all. It is true that the Toronto
Globe, inspired doubtless by an occos-
lonal dozing reminiscent hour, emits a
sneer at American or German Protectionists, of British Tariff Reformers,
but even the Globe, in any mood, does
not now advocate free imports for
Canada. The Liberal party has confessed, by its twelve years of office,
that what it advocated for IS years in
opposition was utterly impracticable
The only constructive measure attempted by the Liberals since 1896 did
not create an issue. Of course It did
duty in election campaigns but not in
a legitimate way. We refer, of course,
to the Grand Trunk Pacific, or rather
the National Transcontinental, railway.
Its projection hy the party which opposed lhe construction of the Canadian
Pacific for which tlie arguments were
a hundred times stronger, was matter
for amused surprise to those whose
knowledge of Canadian public affairs
goes buck so far. But there was no
opposition, and no criticism except as
to details and terms.
At the present session of pariament,
it is true, that an Issue has arisen which
overshadows the budget in Importance
and in Interest, but its Is very closely related to the budget. That issue Is the
maladministration of Beveral departments of the public service and the dishonest and corrupting use of public
money and other assets.
The budget as such is not unsatisfactory. It Indicates rapid growth of revenue, and Inferentially rapid growth of
the nation's commerce and Industry. It
might he nrged that the expenditure is
growing even faster than the revenue,
and that such a development is in contradiction to the vehement protests of
Liberals as late as 10 years ago.    But
consistency ls rare among Liberal politicians, and if they have learned a
little by their tenure of office, so much
the better. Even the enormous growth
of the expenditure is capable of defence. If It were all honestly and wisely spent, with a view to development of
resources that would he the source ln
the future of still greater revenue it
might   be regarded  as  wise investment.
That, ln fact, is tlie one vital question, ls this tremendous expenditure,
about $180,000,000 annually by a little
over o'.uuo.uuu people for prudent Investment or in extravagance and dishonesty?
That Is the question that the Conservatives in parliament are doing their best
to determine. It ls a very disquieting
circumstance that the ministerial forces,
from Sir Wilfrid Laurler himself down
to the lowest Machinist, are exerting
all their strength to prevent Its being
answered. If there were nothing wrong
It would be the best of political strategy for the government to court the
fullest inquiry and investigation Into
the expenditure of public money. It ls
not the honest and innocent man hut
the pick-pocket who has Indignant objections  to  being  searched.
In this connection the Toronto News
has recently made several very pertinent references. The News is an entirely non-partisan paper, hut like all
other papers In Canada not actually on
the payroll of the Machine, Its Independence has forced it into opposition
to the present Dominion administration.
Of the character of some of the expenditure the News sayB:
Tn the house of commons the other
day a vigorous attack was made on
various petty local expenditures in Nova
Scotia and New Brunswick. There is
hardly  any  doubt   that  many  of  these

Shortest   and   Easiest   Route   Is   From
Ashcroft by  Way  of Quesnel���
Must Take  Supplies.
The i|iii'siiiui is being asked on all
sides wli.-ii is the best route to the gold
discoveries on Findlay river, and tbe
Ashcroft Journal thus answers the
As to the value of the discoveries the
Journal has no Information other than
that published In the coast and Edmonton newspapers. What Is there
said is directly In favor of rich discoveries.
Careful inquiry of reliable parties
who the acquainted with the northern Interior itv'niviiiciiiK proof lhat the route
via Quesnel Ib most practicable. Its
great advantage ls that boats or canoes
can be built at Quesnel and taken
right through to objective point.
By way of Skeena the trip ls harder.
Supplies must be placed on horses
from Haselton. The trail ls rough
and liorsfs and supplies have to be ferried across Tatla Lake, a distance of
three miles. The mountain range that
must be crossed is high, consequently It will be late before the trail Is fit
to travel on.    Feed for horses Is poor
From what we can learn the question of supplies on the Findlay will be
a serious one and it will not be safe
for prospectors to run any risk of
getting what they may require after
they get there. The only absolutely
safe plan will be for them to go well
provided and to go by a route which allows of them carrying with them all
they shall need.
The only route that offers anything
like a guarantee of supplies Is that by
way of Ashcroft and Quesnel as is
shown by the following statement.
Starting from Vancouver the approximate distances are, Vancouver to Es-
slngton, 700 miles, Esslngton to Hazelton 160, Hazelton to Manson 160 and
Manson to the discovery on Findlay
river 50  miles.
From Vancouver to Ashcroft the distance Is 205 miles, from Ashcroft to
Quesnel over a good wagon road Is 220,
from Quesnel to QUcombe 130, from
GIscommbe to mouth of the Findlay 175
and up the Findlay 200 miles.
A start can be made from Quesnel
about the last week in April at which
time the river usually opens. Lumber
can be secured at Quesnel with which
to build booms. Experienced boatmen
should go from Quesnel to Gis-
combe in 12 days. From Giscombe to
Findlay mouth it is all down stream
and three days should be sufficient to
make this part of tbe trip. To go up
the Findlay would probably take 15
The steamer Charlotte now running
between Soda Creek and Quesnel la being furnished with a steam capstan to
enable her to go through Fort George

between Quesnel and Giscombe will
be reduced to five days.

entirely a water one, only boats from
that point will be required and a sawmill there will supply all the lumber
needed. Arrangements can also be
made for experienced boatmen at Quesnel If  required.
The season opens earlier by the
Quesnel route than the Hazelton route,
there are no horses to bother with, nor
trails to cut. This route was followed
in the 70's and 80's as far as the mouth
of the Findlay to convey supplies to
the   Peace   River country.
Anything like a rush to the findlay
river discoveries If the travel goes by
way of Hazelton lu likely to be a hard
experience because of the tack of pack
animals to transport supplies from Hazelton to the discoveries. From .Manson
creek to tho discoveries a distance of
about 50 miles there are no trails
and the feed being poor from Hazelton to Manson and the trail bad there
is bound to be a shortage of supplies
for people who have to depend on
getting  them  by  that  route.

Prominent Churih Worker Dead.
Mrs. Louise Jane Berrldge, relict of
the late William lierridge, Victoria,
died at that city last Friday, aged 63
years. Deceased was intimately connected with the work of the Protestant Orphans' Home, of the ladles' committee, of which she was secretary. She
also was a prominent member of the
Metropolitan Methodist church, and
was particularly skilful in connection
withwith artistic decorative work. She
leaves three daughters, Mrs. Johnson,
Mrs. W. W. Baer and Mrs. E. W. Shaw,
and three sons, Frank, Wally and
Fiftieth Anniveraay.
Today ls the fiftieth anniversary of
the location of the first placer
claim on the Fraser nver. This was at
Hill's Bar and with It began the wild
rush In search of gold to the province.
Of the original party who located at
Hill's Bar, March 23, 1858. only one man
remains, James Moore. He winters in
Victoria but returns every spring to
Cariboo. At the time of making the
first locations British Columbia was
New Caledonia, and the finds made by
the Argonauts were those that led to
the opening up of the Hill's Bar, Horsefly and Quisnelle rivers. Antler, Lightning and the famous Williams creek.
The first news that reached the outside
world of the new treasure fields was
received In San Francisco in February.
1858, when the steamer Otter of the
Hudson's Bay company's service,
brought the news from Victoria. The
purser of the Otter took down to the
United States gold mint a quantity of
gold dust to be coined there, and reported that he had obtained it from
the Indians on the bank of the Thompson river, which ls tributary to the
Fraser. This created considerable excitement and led to the formation of
many prospecting parties, to one of
which  Mr.  Moore belonged.
