many properties, large and small. Established mines , like the Eva and
I'lsiaslvlew havo added largely to their
limit and now properties, like the
>la iintoth, have been brought neater
tu Uie stage of dividend paying.
In Kast Kootenay the big mines, the
Ki Eugene and the North Star, have
Is s'n operated  steadily and  profitably.
Near Nelson, the La Plata has had

ary. Toad mouneain and Forty-Nine
'H'ek havo nlso seen �� revival and
work has been resumed on many properties.
The prevailing high prices for silver,
lond nnd copper have had a beneficent
effect on every district.
In no Industry haB the Improvement
during the year been so  great as ln
lumbering. Every milling company in
Kooteuay has Increased IU product
during the year; many have Increased
their mill capacity, and the number of
mills has been nearly doubled. The
certainty or permanent and profitable
markets lu Saskatchewan and Alberta
bas given the Industry a firm basis.
T he rising prices, owing to the general
Increased demand, have enabled the
mill men ul last to operate at a profit.
Fruit Growing.
The Infant Industry of Koolenay,
which, Its votaries claim, Is destined
Ultimately to become the most Important of all, has made a greater proportionate growth than any other. Accurate statistics have not yet bifcu
published, but there Is no doubt lhat
the fruit product of the Nelson district for 1906 Is far in excess of that
of nny preceding year. The success
of t he pioneers has led to a great demand for lana rrom all parts of the
continent and even from abroad, and
the shores of all the lakes and rivers
of Kootenay are likely to become
of fruit growers who will be permanent
settlers. A shipment of Kootenay
fruit won the gold medal at Ihe Edln-
burgh exposition. Nelson's fruit exhibit ranked flflt at the Provincial
fair at New  Westminster.
Customs and  Internal  Revenue.
The collections for 1905 were slightly under |200,000.
Inland revenue collections fnr tio
year were U9.898.J3. an Incase of
about $6000 over 1905.
But the event by which 190C will bo
memorable to future Nelsonltes Is undoubtedly the contemplation of tho
municipal power plant, which Is now
an accomplished   fact.
Brakes of Ore Train  Became  Unmanageable  on  Incline.
Last night at 8:20 an oro train running out of Kossland got beyond conr
ttol of Engineer Alfred Wade, about
four miles west of the city, and left
Ihe track. Engineer Wade was killed.
The other members of tho crew escaped with slight injurinies.
Alfred Wade was a nephew of Road-
master Phil Wade, and was 26 years
of age. He was well known In Nelson
and had many friends.
The cause of the accident Is not
definitely known yet. It Is supposed
that the air-brakes failed to work.
Fernie County Court Official Charged
With Issuing Bogus Receipts���
Points a Moral.
(Special to Tho Dally Canadian.)
Fernie, Dec. 1)1.���Abraham Joyce,
late registrar of the county court and
tax collector here, was brought back
here from Saskatoon by two provincial
policemen on Saturday morning, charged with an offence relating to misappropriating government funds which
came into his hands as tax collector.
It appears lhal the' ex-official procured
facsimiles of official tax receipts near
the end of the year, and applying to
certain companies to pay up apparent
arrears In thc payment of taxes collected from their employees. These
companies produced what are claimed
to be bogus receipts signed by Joyce
and which have led to his arrest.
The downfall of Mr. Joyce is by
many attributed to the mania for gambling to which he ls said to be addicted. His standing ln the community,
being a brother-in-law of H. G. Watson, editor of the Free Press, was high,
and thiB most unfortunate occurrence
has created a deal of surprise and regret among his numerous  friends.
The feeling Is that plnces where
gambling Is carried on, whether ln public or In private, should be sternly
dealt with, and public sentiment will
demand the impartial prosecution of
all keepers of Buch places until the
nuisance has boen abated.
New Year's Watch Tonight���Hallelujah Wedding Tomorrow.
As has been previously announced
the local Salvation Army will tonight

yonr In, by havlug a coffee, cake and
sandwich social, commencing at 8

Representative Victoria Politician Publishes Interview Urging Return of McBride-Government Rallying Cry is "Why Destroy Confidence?"
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
..Victoria, B. C, Dec. 31,���The shrewdest politicians at the capital without
regard to party bias are predicting
lhat the Mclnnis boom will prove a
boomerang of the most destructive
sort to the aspirations of the Liberal
party in this province at the present
juncture. Already the rift within the
lute has appeared.
R. T. Elliott, a prominent barrister,
one of the very pillars of Liberalism In
Victoria, states In a published interview: "As far as I am able to judge,
the main object is to obtain control of
the province in order that the same
may be manipulated by the Ottawa
machine. They desire to get a sub.
servient government for British Columbia and make an arrangement on the
matter of better terms which will be
financially profitable to the Eastern
provinces and accordingly disastrous to
our people and British Columbia."
"In 1900 British Columbia was on
the verge of bankruptcy. Capital to
promote the interests of the people
and to develop the country waa not
available. Our bonds were a drug on
the market, and, generally speaking,
the constant political disruption was
causing unfavorable comment In all
parts of the world.
"What are the conditions today, and
to whom Is due the credit of existing
prosperity.. No sane persons would
answer the Liberal opposition In British Columbia, nor can it be attributed
to liberal gifts from the Ottawa administration, as evidenced by their attitude on the 'better terms' question at
the inter-provincial conference. No; It
Is the stable, Conservative government
of the McBride administration, which
has had the courage to tell the people,
we must insist upon raising the necessary revenue to carry on the great
public works of this new country.
"As a result, confidence haa been restored in all branches of business. New
capital is pouring In. which means increased revenue, and today the eyea
of the world are upon us In altogether
different light. It ia realized what
progressive and honorable government
has done to warrant the Investment of
capital In developing our unlimited natural resources, and I feel safe In saying that under the McBride regime
the aame feeling of confidence will be
maintained. In fact, I am absolutely
certain that a change cf government
would mean a political crisis, an unsettling of business conditions, and
worst of all, the undoing of the efforts
of the last five years.
"For these reasons le seems to me
that a man mutt put principle lbove
and before party. Therefore I feel It
my duty to support the McBride gov-
"Machine" Grits here are at their
wits' end to know what to do to cope
with the situation, as It Is felt that the
seeds of dissension sown in Victoria
may spread throughout the provlnoe.
McBride is going Into this campaign
with these words as his rallying cry:
"Why destroy confidence?" That he
will be returned by a huge majority It
the opinion of all who give the people
of British Columbia credit for common
sense, for possessing an ability to see
that the preaent stable conditions
which prevail in the province are not
to be sacrificed at the bidding of a
gang of wild-eyed office aeekert led by
Joe Martin, Billy Mclnnis, John Oliver
and Comrade  Hawthornthwaite.
The last day of the year finds the
political parties of tho province well
organised and the contest for suprem
acy at the next election fairly undc;*
way. ln many of the constituencies
tlie nomination of candidates by both
the regular parties has already taken
place, while In a few tile Socialist candidates have also been selected. Victoria und Vancouver remain te great
storm centres of political acti-ity, and
It Is these two cities which will practically decide the complexion of the
next legislative assembly. So far as
the Interior and outside constituencies
ure concerned, tbe government ls already assured of an unquestioned majority.
Nothing could be more patriotic and
certainly nothing could be more complimentary to R. F. Green than the
devotion wllh whicli Kaslo constituency insists that Mr. Green should again
contest the riding, and the unqualified
assurance of an overwhelming victory
ln case the appeal of his late constituents should prevail, lt ls sincerely
hoped by all supporters of thc government and by many of Mr. Green's late
political opponents, that he will reconsider his decision to forsake the pursuit of politics and permit his ��aine to
stand fur tbo Kaslo constituency.
It is reported that the office of chief
commissioner of lands and works is to
be temporarily filled by the swearing
in of William Manson of Alberni, and
those who know Mr. Manson will affirm that no more suitable successor
to Mr. Ureen could be tound at the
present time. A conscientious political
worker, a whole-souled Conservativer-a
man with years of experience in the
most difficult positions, requiring the
tact, strength of character and administrative ability that such an offlfce as
that of chief commissioner renuires,
and ln every way qualified for the discharge of such onerous duties, he will
piovc a fi ting occupant of Ihe position, and by his many genial personal
qualities will bring to the office those
qualifications necessary to tbe successful- management or a department so
closely in touch with the public In
The last week has not been without
its sensational features with respect to
the return of Mclnnis to the arena of
provincial politics. The invasion is
said to have been engineered wholly
from Vancouver and Ottawa, and it is
repotted that there are several startling revelations to be made with reference lo this unwarranted intrusion at
the present time. The small fragment
of the provincial press still sticking to
J. A. Macdonald is, being reduced in
numerical strength from day to day,
and Mclnnis' design upon the Liberal
leadership Is growing apace. The
Vancouver World, in speaking ot the
Liberal leaders, does not hesitate to
place Mclnnis' name before that of
Macdonald and generally to assume
tbal Macdonald is a back number.
Victoria Liberals, however, do not
take nny too kindly to the proposed intrusion of Mclnnis inlo the affairs of
British Columbia. Beside their objection tn Mclnnis personally they are
dissatisfied with the prominent part
Vancouver Liberals are taking in
bringing Mclnnis to tho front. The
old political Jealousies between these
two cities are heing revived wllh nn
Intensity stirred up to whiter heat
by Joe Martin and Iho labor element.
Martin has been disappointed ln his
following. ���'He had counted on about
seven men who would be willing to
take their chances on election or defeat wllh the prospect that if elected
they might hold the balance of iiower
in the house, and thus be a constant
source of worry to either parly in power. These nre alleged to bave deserted -Toe at the last moment nnd he Is
u'ideclded what will bo his future
The sensational disclosures mado by
the Socialists ns to Ihe attempt made
six yenrs aeo by Mclnnis to join tbelr
raaks are the talk of the whole Coast
constituencies So serious were these
charges aed so important In their significance and bearing upon ihe political character of Mclnnis that at first
thore was little disposition to attach
any Importance to the Socialist a'lega-
tlons. But tho complacent manner ln
wblch the Socialists declare they will
"make good" has caused consternation
In the ranks of the Mclnnis promoters
In the onpnsltion ranks. The Socialists at Vancouver declare that at the
proper time Ihey will produce the minutes of the Nanaimo local ln which appear a record of the apollcailon of Mclnnis for membership In tbelr revolutionary party, and thnt they will show
the proceedings from stage to slag��.
till the final unanimous rejection of
Mclnnis as one unworlhy to become
cntru��trd wllh the advocacy of the
principles of Socialism. The reasons
given ln Vanoouver by thoBe who were
In clone touch with the Nana'mo proceedings Is that no Socialist bnlleved
McTnnis sincere, nor does nnvone who
knows h'm b-llcvo he conld be sincere
on any political or economic question.
He was rejected because It waB well
understood that his application for
membership ln the Nanaimo local waB
with a view to the manipulation of tbe
local for portonal and political ends.
At the aame time lt was admitted and
charged that be would have swallowed
lbe binding oath of the Socialists If
by that means be could have rallied a
few more votes to bis cause. At the
proper time the Socialists say they
will make the fullest disclosures in
these matters and as a result it is reported that Mclnnis' friends have decided tbat tbe must not be asked to
run In Vancouver.
It was first intended that he should
run In Victoria city, but since the defection of Messrs. Spratt, Elliot and
Murray, who control a large minority
of the Liberal votes in Victoria, even
that constituency Ib considered unsafe.
By the latest advices lt is said lhat lt
bad been decided that she shall run
ln Alberni, as that ia considered a
safe seat, and would leave full time
for Mclnnis to help out Macdonald in
the provincial campaign.
The elevation of Manson to the position of chief commissioner, while be
Is at the same time thc candidate for
Alberni, leaves Mclnnis without a leg
to stand on ln the way of hope for
election lu that borough. He Is, there-
fere, the man without a constituency,
and all the nice-laid plans of men and
mite have gone agley. No greater Bur-
prise could have been sprung upon
tbe Liberals than the assertion of tbe
Socialists that Mclnnis had actually
made formal application for membership in tbeir political order. For
three years the Liberal press has been
harping upon the imagined alliance
that has existed between McBride and
the Socialist leader, Hawthornthwaite.
While there is nothing in the records
of the house, nothing In open or covert act to show that such an alliance
has existed; while both Mr. McBride
and Mr. Hawthornthwaite deny the
charge of an alliance of any kind, the
opposition press haB kept up Its fiction
and blazoned out the charge. It is
now easy retaliation for the government press to assert that never in the
moBt cloudy days of political expediency has any member of the McBride
government made application for'membership ln a Socialist local. No Conservative has ever been so faithless
and so devoid of political honor and so
ashn���ed of his political allegiance, or
go changllng a political traitor as to
openiy ask the despised Socialists to
receive h'm Into the fold. That Mc-
InnP dH this will be amply proven,
and I" tb" very hilt in the teeth of any
vaunted denial that he may see necessary to express.
That Mclnnis ls capable of Just such
political jugglery is quite believable
in view of the opinions expressed of
his political constancy or inconstancy
by members of his own party. That
he Is persona non grata with the old-
time Liberals and the best men In the
party can be easily proven by the records that are available from the recent past. Mr. Smith Curtis, at one
time a cabinet minister himself, and
now reported to be a likely candidate
In the Simiikameen, once spoke bis
mind very freely on the qualifications
of the Hon. W. W. B. Mclnnis. In a
memorable Interview in the Rossland
Miner in the fall of 1903, Mr. Curtis
said: "Mclnnis Is absolutely Impossible
If Liberalism Is to emerge from the
cold shades of the opposition by putting honorable men at the helm of the
Liberal ship. And again, "No, no: Mc
Inula won't do at all for lender and
should not even be allowed In the caucus of the party."
Mr. Smith Curtis, whatever else he
may be, Is accounted an honorable politician, and If bo recently he expressed
these sentiments ln regard to Mr. Mclnnis, what must now be bis opinion?
lt ls clear thai if J. A. Macdonald ls
accounted by Ihe Liberals Incapable of
carrying the country they have not
added to their real strength by Inviting Mclnnis Into the provincial fold
As a spellbinder, a good speaker, a
platform whirlwind, an unconvincing
but forceful debater, Mclnnis is a success, but as a faithful patriotic citizen
he has alwnys been a disappointment
and will bo none the less so now.
With John Oliver sulking, with Macdonald supplanted, with Vancouver
sold body, bouI and boots to tbe Ottawa coterie through Bob Kelly, with
Victoria spilt ,'as to Liberalism, and
with the rest of the country solid for
the administration of Premier McBride, it needs only the sinking of all
local differences In the Conservative
party, as has been done so far In every constituency, a united front, a few
daya hard and honest work tn behalf
of a caea's'e and honest government
nnd British Columbia will emerge
fom her present trial In the safe
hands of a capable administration, an
honest nnd anti-graft government, and
with a political policy and record that
need apologize to none or excuse Itself
anywhere. That such will be the ultimate event of the elections forthcoming Is not doubted by any Conservative.

Officer of Railway    Commission    Rec-
ommendt Favor to Vancouver Only
���F. 8tarkey't Viewt.
J. Hardwell, chief traffic officer of
the railway commission, haa given an
exhaustive opinion on the freight rate
question. The recommendation that
most concerns Nelson ls as follows:
"That to tbe points between Vancouver and Calgary and Macleod In the
Kootenays on commodities from the
east carried all-rail under transcontinental, rates, no rates be made lower
than the sum of eastern rates from
Vancouver to the destination.
"1 think thla should cover the
ground. Clause *D* ought to prevent
such rates as has been cited to Nelson, for instance, which are higher
from Vancouver than from Winnipeg,
for the Vancouver shipper will have
the balance of rate Winnipeg to tbe
coast in hit favor.
"My sympathies are with the coast
merchants, who are restricted to the
very limited marketB of British Columbia, as, geographically, I look upon
the Calgary and Edmonton road as the
natural dividing line. The evidence
aubmitted, however, Is against It; yet
it my views are approved the coast
shippers will have much more favorable rates than heretofore."
The passage was shown to F. Star-
key, president of the board of trade
and Wholesalers' association. Mr.
Starkey said:
"The principle Involved in the recommendation is a vfcious one. It means
that centres like Nelson nnd Calgary
and all olher places between Winnipeg
and Vancouver, are to be sacrificed
in favor of these two larger towns.
The railways have always boen allowed to discriminate in favor of the East
against the West. Now they, aro recommended to still further discriminate
against the western Interior In favor
of Vancouver. If accepted, It will keep
the cost of living ln Kootenay and Alberta permanently higher than anywhere else in Canada.
"Yes; all these questions will be
dealt with In the case now being prepared by the Wholesalers* association
for submission to the railway commission.

The gathering of (Sanaa
Saturday night for iii-- porpOM ������'
electing a committee ol thf :.
of the iiarty to nominate the Q83
for the en-suing election wil! be t_anea
bored in Nelson as the amid hanmrni-
una and enthusiastic jiulitical gathering
In the history of the citv. Not onl>
were all lhe old-time sections of the
Iiarty represented, but the numerical
strength of the gathering was a flattering assurance of the earn'*.- In BM
with which the OohservattTCMi of the
city Intend mtering Into the approaching contest. Whatever differences al
opinion hud prevto_-dy existed u to
the puiticuiar method by which ;i candidate should be chosen, the ��� ���
rally showed that every nian realised
how much the manner of choosing a
candidate must be secondary to the
united and Harmonious action of a convention, We think, also, that the enthusiasm of tbe gathering and the un-
Qualified alacrity with which the entire meiting bound Itself tu vole and
work for tlie candidate selected by the
nominating committee must havo lieen
an agreeable surprise to many who
had allowed themselves to be deceived
by the misrepresentations of an interested and self aggrieved opposition
ptess. H There were auy suggestions
of "ring rule" at the meeting we did
not hear of them, oven in whispers,
and we are confident that when the
meeting broke up there was more harmony, unanimity and enthusiasm
among all classes of Conservatives In
Nelson than *ever before in the history of the party In the city.
The committee elected to choose a
candidate ls a thoroughly representative one, and its personnel covers ev
ery  possible color    or    complexion of
Conservative taste and preference. We
| are convinced from  what  we saw ou
i Saturday   night  that   i.s   deliberations
will be as harmonious, that Its members will be no more self-seeking and
thai its results will be as final as were
those of Saturday night's affair.    The
, Liberals of the city  whose chief reli*
; ance has been on alleged dissensions

d Hu proviiice have reached t
crisis and that the forthcoming elec-
ttons tna serrle for many yetrs lo
come the qut-Btion whether British Columbia is to shape her destiny in harmony with her own provincial ideals
or whether she is to pass Into the cat.
��� j:ory    nf  '.-nvincia!    nonentities    for

(rom the conducting of a sham pofltag
I '���   ��� b     ���   0- premiers and mem-
��� ' th*- cabinet, as well as the
school policy and other important
questions affecting the civil and jrollt-
ical liberty of iu people.
On all these questions the Conservative party and every member of it
knows where It stands, and In harmony with Ms traditions, as well as ln
sacred respect for the memory of those
grent men, its founders, the party will
cherish the Ideals of liberty, equality
and progress that have been the foundation stones of Canada's greatness.
A facetious press may fancy that
purely local questions would outweigh
such essential and momentous considerations, but Conservatives are not
slaves to prejudice, nor are they the
minions of a federel clique. Their expression of loyalty and patriotism will
be heard with a mighty and telling effect when the polls nre opened and
they are asked to decide whether they
will be sold at the shambles or remain
free mon.
It bas been the not infrequent lament of lleterary critics and lovers of
chaste friction thai the last quarter
of a century has witnessed a sad deterioration In the quality of literary
productions which have as their essential charm that they are hugely the
products of the imagination. Careful
aud scholarly comparisons have been
made between the work of the book
aud story artists ol the present general ion and those of but a half century ago, and the inevitable conclusion
has been that modern fiction has
dropped almost to the level of the
Jesse ,lames model. The extensive
reader of modern times turns away
from almost all of the latest books
because they are so Inferior to lbe
work of the masters that reading them
Is a task.
The name process of deterioration,
only In u much more marked degree,
is evident In the productions of tbo
modern newspapers, whose business it
appears to be to purvey political fictions ami regale an already nauseated
public with the Insane vaporings o_
the political novelists whose work is
both disgracing and shameful from
either a literary or a political point of
view. The disgusting qualities of these
modern fables is not confined to their
exaggerations alone, but is magnified
a thousandfold by tbe reckless disregard of the commonest elements necessary to the production of Interesting
and influential matter. We mean the
elements of consistency ami plans!*
Last week the people of British Columbia were assured that resignation
of Mr. R. F. Green from the portfolio
of minister of lands and works was
because of internal dissensions in the
cabinet; thnt the Vancouver section of
the Conservatives of the province had
insisted on Mr. Green's dismissal by
the premier; that the other ministers
would not stand their share of responsibility for the alleged shady work of
Mr. Green in the administration of his
department) and the changes were
rung on this report with variations and
persistency, ad nauseum.
The early Sabbath morning of this
week finds a new field for these Irresponsible matlgnants who are not possessed of sufficient intellectual fertility to stick to any story for more than
a week. We are now told that Mr.
Green is to go to Prince Rupert; that
his resignation from the cabinet was,
alter all, a matter of private business,
but that such private business Is supposed to be of such a pernicious tind
detestable a nature that the fecund
Imaginations of these highly sensational writers cannot even suggest what
It is. "It is positively known," says
the Jespatch, "that a brother of Mr.
Green Is going to Prince Rupert, and
i' is generally believed . . . that
Mr. Green himself will soon set out
for the same place. He will wait till
the elections are over, but almost immediately afterward his engagement
with the Grand Trunk will be announced." So says the despatch, a self-evident fabrication, and upon Its face so
manifestly of the same color and stripe
as a hundred of the like kind which
have appeared in the morning paper
and which have been proven to be the
most unfounded fals_hools that this

deny  tht  whoie  fctory
We Kiaiuely think he will. It is too
jiamfully ert-dem that both the sender
of tht fake despatch and the editor
are writing what they know to be a
Calsebood. The evidences of this con-
BciousneaB are too apparent in both
the article's, and we doubt if Mr. Green
will uke the trouble to contradict
what is on its face a malevolent untruth.
The facts. If the public wish to know
them, are as follows: The Liberal party, through Its Mclnnifl-Grand Trunk-
Laurier entanglement, is in desperate
straits. Th** whole country Is becoming aware of the project which Is on
foot to despoil the heritage of Hritish
Columbians in the mad determination
to attain control of the resources of
this province for the gang of exploiters
ut Ottawa. Since the proposal to im-
port Mclnnis into the provincial arena
the best newspapers of the country
have been full of warnings against the
G. T. P.-Mclnnls alliance, and not a
single Liberal paper has dared deny
the accusation. They all know that as
soon as Mclnnis appears upon the
scene the unholy truth will he told
and the shameless plans for the spoliation of the country will become
As a red herring they are therefore
anxious to draw off the scent of the
electors who tire keeping keen track
of the development of affairs. The
lies of the opposition press have been
deteriorating In plausibility every
week and are becoming too transparently opprobrious to serve the purpose for which they are circulated.
We think deterioration of mental qualities marks almost its utmost limit
when the political yarns of ;i province
reach such a marked degree of corruption nnd improbability,
The morning paper has an unconvincing denial that Mr. Macdonald in
to be supplanted in tbe leadership of
the Liberal party by Mclnnis. Among
other things It says, of Mr. Mclnnis.
"that he went to Ottawa, exactly
as he stated when he lauded a1 Vie
toria, ou departmental business; and
that, when his business was concluded
lie tendered his  resignation."
To show how shallow Is this plea, it
Is ouly necessary to state that Mclnnis
has not tendered his resignation. The
Canadian makes the prediction that he
win not do so until he has returned
to Hritish Columbia and has a definite
Understanding with the Liberals as to
his exact status in case be should enter the provincial arena. Mr. Mclnnis
has the Llhetal party completely at
his mercy, Without him there is not
a ghost of a show for success In an
appeal to the country, and this is
known to Mr. Macdonald���else why did
he invite Mclnnis to his assistance?
I: is also known to tin; Dally News,
for the editor of that paper has loured
the pnivlnce and canvassed dlstricl
alter district with a view to finding a
soft place or a "sure seat" for himself, always to receive the cold deck.
That Mclnnis Is a veritable Shylock
when he can command the terms is
well known to those best acquainted
with his political career. Like the
Xews, The Dally Canadian asks its
reade-rs to patiently await the return
of Mclnnis to Itritish Columbia, and
they will then discover who it is that
knows as "little of the opjiosition plan
of enmpaign as the small boy on the
street." Words are cheap but tlie opposition as such have not yet nny [dan
of campaign. The whole plan is to be
reconstructed aud that cannot now be
done till Mclnnis returns. When that
event occurs Macdonald and his followers will find themselves overwhelmed by the swirling breakers of
the Coast Liberals' Imperious demands.
Speaking of dissensions in party
ranks the morning paper has not stated that a prospective candidate objected In the meeting held in S. S.
Taylor's office to the appointment of
a well known Liberal on the campaign
committee, on the ground that he had
recently received an appointment as
supervising architect for the new
courthouse. Nor has lt Informed Rs
readers that said architect has made
application for membership in the
Nelson Conservative club. Still there
are more to follow.
The Daily News reporter was the
most welcome visitor in attendance at
Sa_urday night's meeting. It must
have been an eye-opener as to the
amount of Influence the morning paper
exerts In stirring up friction among
New Year's Greetings.
The Daily Canadian wishes all its
���subscribers and readers a Happy and
Prosperous New Year, not necessarily
according to the hopes and ambitions
and plans of each of these, but in the
way that fate, Providence or destiny
may design, according as you are a believer in the one or the other. And
Many Happy Returns of the Season.
Tomorrow being a statutory holiday
there will be no issue of The Daily
Canadian. Wednesday's paper will appear as usual. Advertisers and subscribers please note.

No surprise will be occasioned by the
official announcement tbat the provincial general elections will be held on
February 2, some five weeks hence.
Kor the past three months it has been
regarded as almost a certainty that
an appeal would be made to the country before another session of the legislature was held. It was feared In some
quarters that the.holiday season would
be thrown into confusion by a dissolution during the latter days of the year.
but as might have beeu expected, the
government was too considerate of tbe
people's Interests to allow itself to be
influenced in this matter by the clamors and predictions of its opponents.
With the Christmas festivities well
over and all business incidental to
the season completed, the public can
turn its attention unhampered to the
selection of representatives, to whom
it will entrust the conduct of Us alia ira during the ensuing four years.
And it Is to be hoped that this attention will be given in full measure. It
ls of the utmost importance that from
this time forth the provincial legislature should be composed of men of
intelligence and capacity. That lt
should is more necessary now than
ever before, if the country is to enjoy
the future which appears to be in storo
tor lt. It is especially important lhat
tlie governmenl should be equal to the
occaalon with which we are confronted.
and that its members should be men of
ability, of prudence, and of enterprise.
The next few yenrs In this province-
will be a period of grent material expansion If we have tin; right men in
charge of our public lntereK'ts. If we
fail to place the right men there, we
may reap disaster Instead of prosperity, Every individual resident of British Columbia, therefore, is vitally interested In the result of tho forthcoming
contest. Upon his fortunes will bo reflected the progress of the province at
large. The contest will be between
Ihe government which at present administers our affairs, and the opposition, which seeks to do so. There will
be comparatively few new men in th*.*;
field, and one question which will confront the people, therefore, is: Do they
desire to entrust the present members
of (he opposition with power, or aro
Ihey satisfied with the existing government, and tho present policy of prudence and economy? We think thai on
its renin! the McUride administration
can frankly ask for a renewal of public
confidence. During its term It has
freed the province from tho pressin-er
encumbrances of a very serious debt,
contracted by its predecessors, and it-
has made such arrangements that thnt.
debt will be liquidated in due time.
not only without increasing, but with
an annual diminution of the present
taxation. That Is much, but ft can
claim more than that. It can claim
that the affairs of the province have
been conducted to the reasonable Bat-
faction of the country at larger���of all
classes of the    business   community;
and this, after all, Is the final test of
But the great overshadowing question
in this election���the one which should
dominate all others���Is whether we are
to have a government fn this province
in sympathy with the government at
Ottawa, or one which will concern
itself entirely with the interests of
British Columbia. It can quite readily
be seen that if we plaace an administration in power which will be satisfied
to be dictated to and controlled by the
federal authorities, we will simply be
handing ourselves over, bound hand and
foot, to a power which has for ten
years shown Itself determined to make
the country serve the interests of a
party. Under the best of conditions it
is dangerous in the extreme for a provincial government to be of the same
political stripe as the federal administration. Sir Oliver Mowatt regarded
this as one of the wisest of his political
maxims, and it was through bis fight
for twenty years with the Ottawa government that he secured the rights of
Ontario. We can readily see how our
interests would be jeopardized, would
be betrayed, If we elected to office a
government, whose members were politically allied with those in power at the
Dominion capital. What would have
been the result had a Liberal premier
gone to Ottawa to attend the Better
Terms conference? Instead of Premier's McBrlde's decided and patriotic
stand, our representative would have
accepted exactly what he was told to.
This question has yet to be determined,
and so have many others. Shall we
say, by the government we elect, that
they shall all be decided at Ottawa,
not at Victoria? That is what the election of Mr. Macdonald and his party to
power will mean. **vl
And shall British Columbia be turne-tf*
over to the Dominion government as a.
field for exploitation by party favorites? We talk of graft in the province
today, as a result of federal corruption. With a -government at Victoria,
acceptable to that at Ottawa, there Is
danger that we might have to resort
to rafts, and push off Into the Pacific
ocean, as the only possession left to us.
