Splendid Rally of Local
Popularity of John A. Kirpatrick and
Prestige of McBride Cabinet too
Much for Opponents.
The first rally of the campaign was
held in the Conservative committee
rooms Saturday night, and the numbers present and the enthusiasm displayed are a sure Indication of victory
for John A. Kirkpatrick on the 2nd of
The seats In the big commiltee
room were all filled, and until a late
hour all the standing room was taken
up; the number preseut was probably
In the neighborhood of 200. Never before in the history of the Conservative party ln Nelson have the first
stages of a campaign been marked by
anything like the enthusiasm and the
determination to win that have been
evoked by the candidature of Mr. Kirkpatrick in the present campaign.
For this spirit among the Conservatives there are two obvious explanations: The personal popularity of the
candidate and {he general indignation
felt at tbe persistent campaign of slander and abuse prosecuted by the Liberal press of the province, for which
the opposition leader's belated apology
will not be accepted as atonement.
It Is the second reason referred to
which probably explains the attitude
adopted by many men who cannot be
considered as strong party men, the
neutrals who do not attend party conventions, who seldom talk politics, and
wbo usually vote, if ait .all. because of
personal preference for one candidate,
or of Bpeclal lntereBt ln one Issue. All
such voters are hastening even this
early, to declare themselves in favor
of the government of the day, and of
Its candidate in Nelson, John A. Kirkpatrick.
Saturday night's meeting was called
to order promptly at 8:30 by R. S. Lennie,, president of the Conservative
club. Mr. Lennie submitted as the object of the meeting the striking of the
active working committees required
for the campaign to ensure the election
of Mr. Kirkpatrick by tbe majority
due to his own personal qualifications
due to his own personal! qualifications
and to the righteousness of the cause
for which he stands.
Referring to the recent Liberal gathering ln the city and to the fact that
Ihe Conservative party was not represented at It by any one officially authorized to speak for it, Mr. Lennie
explained that tbe Invitation was not
addressed to the Conservative party
or Its campaign committee, but to Mr.
Kirkpatrick personally; tbat It was received by him too lato to permit him
to make arrangements to be present,
and that lt contained no Intimation
that any other representative would
be given an opportunity to siieak ln
Mr. Klrkpatrlck's behalf. Nevertheless,
he was glad that a volunteer had been
present to defend the party's cause
and had acquitted himself creditably,
though at a moment's notice. On be
half of thc Conservative club executive
committee he promised his hearers
thai at all public meetings held under
their nUBplces, perfect fairness and
courtesy would be shown to their opponents, lhat ample notice would be
given to the Liberal candidate to enable him lo be present ln person or to
be represented by anyone he might
The announcement was warmly approved  and applauded.
Turning to the Issues raised In the
campaign Mr. Lennie Bald that the devotion of the Liberals to a series of
desperate attempts to dlsoover scandals constituted ln Itself an admission
that there was no valid ground for
serious criticism in the administration
of the province by Mr. McBride and his
Referring briefly to the question of
Better Terms be taunted the Liberals
with their shameless Inconsistency ln
abusing the premier for his stand
against Federal coercion and cajolery
in defence of rights which had ln the
past been asserted by all tbe public
men of British Columbia of both parties���and a stand, too, which the Liberal leader has since proclaimed that
be, too, will maintain if returned to
Mr. Lennie concluded a brief but
stirring address by earnestly exhorting
all present to exert every influence
they possessed to roll up a big majority for Mr. Kirkpatrick to prove that
the city of Nelson is not half-hearted
in Ua fight for the rights of the province.
K. J. Clark, who wae next called upon, congratulated the party on the results already achieved. The present
campaign had brought out an irreproachable candidate in whose integrity and zeal for the welfare of Nelson
and of British Columbia no one could
pretend to doubt. It bad also brought
Into the forefront of the public life of
Nelson one whose abilities hitherto devoted to the practice of his- profession,
had remained almost unknown to the
general public���R. S. Lennie.
Both statements found hearty and
unanimous endorsement by the meeting.
Dismissing the various attempts of
the opposition to unearth scandals, ln
connection with Kaien island, with the
Pendray lands, with the Columbia &
Western land grant, ae dead Issues,
which, if revived at all could only testify to the cleanness of the government's record, the speaker pointed to
the sterling achievement in the face of
great difficulties of restoring the credit of a province almost ruined by a
long and unbroken series of deficits
and by an evil reputation acquired,
for experimental legislation, and for
tbe vagaries of some ot its public men.
He defended the School Act of 1905
as a justifiable and wise measure of
devolution admirably calculated to Improve the administration of the public
schools of the province by enlisting
in their Bupport the interest of the
ratepayers which must result from the
new duties confided to them.
He charged the leader of the opposition with utter neglect ot the duties
of helpful criticism of legislation, and
compared his record with that of Sir
William Meredith ln Ontario, gratefully acknowledged by the late Sir Oliver
Mowat whom he opposed. Mr. Macdonald, in common with all his followers, had been too intent on seeking
and manufacturing scandals to attempt
to perform the duties of an opposition
as involved ln tbe system of party government,
Mr. Clark then devoted some time to
an historical review of the Better
Terms question, from the conference
bargain of 1871 to Mr. McBride's with-
diawal from the recent conference. He
submitted Mr. Fielding's final bid Involved a confession of the Inadequacy
and inj tsilce of Sir Wilfrid Laurler's
first offer. He contended tbat any uncertainty as to British Columbia's support of ber premier's stand in this matter might seriously injure the prospects of ultimately securing fair treatment.
The rising of the candidate, John A.
Kirkpatrick, was the signal for enthusiastic cheering. Mr. Kirkpatrick
spoke very* briefly, thanking the party
for the honor conferred upon him, declaring his firm adherence to Conservative principles and his resolve to be
a faithful and digent representative of
Nelson and promoter of the welfare of
the province to the best of his ability.
Hearty cheers were given for the
candidate and the president, and the
meeting thn proceeded to the election

Discuss Resignation.
Ottawa, Jan. 7.���Lord Strathcona
arrived today and went straight to the
premier's office, where he had an Interview with Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
Hon. L. P. Brodeur. The high commissioner had nothing to add to what

���ketch of Ernest Millar, Who Will Succeed Q. A. Fraser.
Grand Forks, Jan. 7.���Ernest Miller,
the Conservative candidate at the approaching provincial elections (or the
Grand' Forks (electoral district, an<|
who received the unanimous nomination at the district Conservative convention held at Grand Forks a few daya
ago, is a strong supporter of the McBride government. Mr. Miller waa
born in British Columbia In the year
1870. He studied law In Toronto, Victoria and Vanoouver, and was called
to the bar ln J8��4, practlalng law ln
Vancouver, Rossland and Grand Forks.
He haa held the positions of city solicitor and crown prosecutor at Grand
Forks tor the last fire years and la
still the Incumbent of both of these
Mr. Miller has always taken an active part In politics and la now president of the conservative association
here, which position he haa held Ior
several yeara. Although a compara-
tively young practitioner he baa deservedly earned an enviable reputation as s criminal lawyer, being exceptionally resourceful ln bis defences.
The same resourceful quality ls now
being applied tn the coming campaign
and added to thla his general popularity and wide personal acquaintance
have practically assured his election.
Mr. Miller is the only candidate of
any political party whatever at Grand
Forks who received a unanimous nomination from the various surrounding
towns. He ls recognised as the very
strongest man ln the Conservative party here to contest the coming election.
Although a strong Conservative, Mr.
Miller ls today receiving unlimited support from all shades of politicians here,
which fact ia making him such a formidable candidate.
Another Opposition   Slander   Follows
Its Leaders.
Nelson, Jan. 6, 1907.
To the Editor:
Dear Sir���late this afternoon my attention waa called to an article In this
morning's edition of The Dally News
stating that I came to Nelaon aa the
travelling treasurer ot the Conservative
party, that I am, as the headlines
announce, "The man with the bag."
As the statement is absolutely untrue and as no one ln Nelson wu In a
position last night to give any Information as to my business, the story
must have been manufactured In the
office of The Dally News.
I therefore take this early opportunity  of Informing  the honest  people
of Nelson that tbe story ls simply a
deliberate and  malicious lie.
Tours sincerely,
Work on Winslow.

The electors of Nelson, like Uiose of
nearly every other constituency in ihe
provlnoe, will have three candidates
from whom to choose u representative
to sft in the'next legislative assembly
or the province.
Nelson Is fortunate In that the per-
|sonal equation need hardly be Pimsld-
���fered in the choice, John A. Kirkpatrick, Dr. G. A. II. Hall and Frank Phillips are nil honest men, all good and
reputable cltlrens, and all estimable
in private life The only choice the
elector has to make, then, is from the
three policies or -sets of principles assumed to be represented by the can*
a dispassionate review ol the situation and a comparison of the three policies advocated and offered, iin* the
duty of eaeh patriotic citizen ol Brit*
lnh Columbia, and It should be Hie duty
and the privilege of those who aim to
lead or to guide public opinion, not to
darken counsel hy a multitude of words
and by the publication of an endless
series of baseless rumors of personal
quarrels and faction squabbles which,
even if they were true, would be irrelevant  to the Issue.
The Socialists, if the words of their
accepted leader, J. JJ. Hawthornthwaite"
are to be considered as authoritative*
aim ut establishing a different system
of government and a different organization of society from those that now
exist. Their Spokesmen are somewhat
vague In expression, but they must be
credited with sincerity iu advocating
the abolition of private ownership of
Now, private ownership cannot bo
abolished   In   British   Columbia   alone.
The province is too intimately connected and related witli the rest of Canada.
It might, then, be urged that the Socialists should give up an impossible
task, and wait until they can organize
throughout the whole Dominion. But
the Socialists would probably reply
that they hope to attain to that In
time, and have chosen British Columbia for the first assault.
But, even If the formation of a Socialist government for the province be
considered to be an impossibility for
the present, it may still be argued that
a small group of socialists in the house
Is a useful element in watching legislation in the special interests of the
workingmen whose special representatives they have always claimed to be.
To such a claim there are two valid
replies: First, that every member of
the legislative assembly represents
more laborers than members of any
other class. There is as yet no leisured class and no privileged class ln
Hritish Columbia. Secondly, and it
seems to us, of even greater Importance, even a small Independent group
In a house of 42 members may prevent
the establishment of any stable administration, and being comparatively
Irresponsible, as all small groups must
be, they might either force thplr own
terms upon the government of the day
or completely block all public business.
Such a danger did, In fact, threaten
the present government during Its
first session, and until the election of
Mr. Manson. now provincial secretary,
for the vacancy In Alberni, gave Mr.
McHrlde a majority over Liberals and
Socialists, should  they combine.
Hut lt is a danger that the electors
of Hritish Columbia would not willingly see recur, and all business men and
all sober-minded working men will
echo Alderman Selous' wish for "a
swingeing majority" for the government.
It requires far less space to indicate
what the Conservative party glands for
in British Columbia at present. A
Conservative government has brought
order out of chaos, has made the provincial revenue meet the annual expenditure after a series of deficits
which began so long ago that few in
Hritish Columbia now remember the
last surplus under a former administration. Moreover, the fact that the
province could and did live within Its
income; that in spite of that such a
public work   as   the   bridge   over   the
Fraser at New Westminster could ibe
provided for; that In the meanwhile
old industries have been restored lo
prosperity and new ones developed���
all this lias enormously improved the
position of Hritish Columbia and restored the conlidei.ee especially of the
financial world, which is of such importance to a great new country, whose
immense resources still require* outside capital for their exploitation. This
is the achievement of Hon. Richard
Mcliridz and his colleagues, and this
is th_ task for the completion of which
they ask now a renewal of the peoples
But, just at the present juncture
there is still another claim whose Importance cannot be overestimated. The
just claims of Hritish Columbia for exceptional treatment in the readjust ment of financial relations
between the provinces and the
Dominion���claims as to which there is
no disagreement among parties in this
province���have been preferred by Mr.
McBride, and have been refused by
the representatives of the other provinces and of the Dominian. Although
J. A. Macdonald, Liberal leader, has
repudiated them, the whole Liberal
press of the province has attacked and
condemned Mr. McBrlde's attitude. A
defeat of Mr. McUride at the present
juncture would go far to excuse, if not
to justify, the refusal of the claims of
this province.
The Conservatives, therefore, stand
for two things: The continuance of the
safe and sane administration which has
restored prosperity to the province,
and for insistence upon the rights of
the province against the whole of the
rest of Canada, if necessary, in the
matter of equitable financial relations.
The position of the Socialists and of
the Conservatives are thus clearly defined. It fs not so easy to determine
what the Liberals stand for. There
are so many different positions taken
by Liberal members that we are tempted to offer the advice tendered by
Punch to the British Liberal party in
their dark days when Lord Kosebery
betook himself to his "lonely furrow."
Punch suggested a mass m ���--meting of
Liberal leaders to formulate a policy.
If J. A. Macdonald may still be considered as speaking with authority, his
recent deliverance in Nelson does not
help to an understanding of Liberal
aims. The only matters on which he
definitely advocates anything that the
present government haa not done, or
is not doing, is the formation of a provincial department of labor and immigration. As he would bar all Orientals
and objects to assisting any others, it
is rather difficult to see what functions he would permit such a department to perform. j
He wants railway companies taxed
but objects to the one measure already
taken by ihe government, the new
School Ac', to make the railway corporations pay some share of the flnan-
ci *I burden of the province.
On the question of Better Terms Mr.
Macdontild says that if returned icf
powr-r he will insist, as Mr. McBrldd
has insisted, on the rights of the province. That statement alone Is justification for Mr. McHrlde and a well-
m* rited rebuke to the Liberal press,
whose bitter attacks on tlie premier's
attitude Mr. Macdonald has not yet had
the manhood to repudiate.
Altogether, it is not misrepresentation, but plain statement of fact, to
say that the Liberals in British Columbia repiesent nothing a' all at
present, their only real point of dlf-J
ference with the government being the
natural and quite pardonable desire of
their members to replace the Conser-'
vatives in office.
But the electors of the province may
be trusted to express unmistakably
their preference for tried and proved
servants, and their reluctance to experiment with the unknown.

Now that the time for action has arrived it behooves every voter to be
ready to do his duty to himself and
his country. He should nol he misled
hy the slanders of political aspirants
for pojvcr and place against those
whose positions they are seeklug.
Every man should strip from the Inn-
gunge of party warfare the misstatements and fallacies It contains, und
vote as conscience dictates. In no period In Ihe history of our province
have more desperate means been devised to attain power than are now being made use of by the opposition. To
catch the vote, to blind the eyes of the
voter, they distort facts, falsify the records and try to blacken the character
of their opponents. They hav e no
gieat principle of public policy to substitute for that which has fostered and
built up the industries of the province,
established an abiding sense of faith in
our future, and relieved us from bankruptcy and created a confidence in the
minds of capitalists and Investors from
the beneficial effects of whicli we are
now  profiling.

Damages Against Texas Railroads Not
Collectible���Other   Interesting
News by Wire.
Chicago, 111., Jan. 7.���Two ca_es
brought by the Cattle Raisers' associ__-
tion of Texas naming a number of
railroads as defendants, the first case
all-oging rate discrimination on Interstate shipments of live stock and the
second case Involving the legality of
the $2 terminal charge on carload
shipments of cattle at the Union stockyards in this city, came up for hearing
today before the Interstate Commerce
Commission. Both cases have been
heard before by the commission and
decided in favor the cattle men. But
neither or the decisions whs enforced
under the old railroad rate law because
of the fact lhat the commission hud no
rate making power. After the new law
went into effect the Texas cattle raisers and the Chicago live stock exchange revised the cases and filed new
complaints, which were taken up by
the commission today.
Standard Oil Cases.
St. Louis, Jan. 7.���What promises to
be the last hearing ln the suit brought

Pierce Oil Company, and thu Republic

al) the officers of the several com-
I panies, including John D. Rockefeller,
} H. H. Rogers and others upon whom
eupoenas had been served, were represented by counsel. The testimony of
all the witnesses wil) be reviewed by
Commissioner Anthony and then transmitted to the Missouri supreme court
for final adjudication.
Shingle Weaver's Convention.
Belllngham, Wash., Jan. 7.���Delegates from half a dozen states are attending Uie annual convention of the
International Shingle Weavers' Union

for the union. Plans will be discussed
for more thoroughly organizing the
shingle weavers . of British Columbia
and Oregon am) in the states east of
the mountains. At present the membership Ib confined largely to the Statu

Lessons for the Farmer.
Guthrie, Okla., Jan. 7.���The third
annual "Farmers' Week" held under
the auspices of the Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College began
today under conditions promising a
most successful session. A large number of farmers, representing all parts
of the new state, registered today and
many more are expected tomorrow.
Every' man shows the keen interest of
a student in endeavoring to learn from
the lectures and demonstrations all
that he possibly can in the unique
Bchool for the farmer. Men whose hair
is streaked with gray show the same
amount of enthusiasm as their younger associates. A considerable portion
of the week will be occupied with the
phesentation of the principles which
should govern the selection of seed for
farm crops, particularly as regards
corn, Kaffir corn, cotton, wheat, and
oats. Instruction is to bo given In the
