Result of Exciting Municipal Contest in

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Graod Forks, Jan. 17.���At the clly
elections held here today Jeffrey Hummer was elected mayor, securing a total vote of 191, or a majority of 7ti
votes over his opponent, J. D. .McDonald. The aldermen elected for Ihs'

Liberals Are Losing Heart
Sat Assured to Conservative With
Liberal Probably at Foot
of the Poll.
(Special  to Thc Daily Canadian.)..
Fernie, Jan. 17.���William Wallace
Bruce Mclnnes, who has descended
fiom his throne In thc Yukon to lake
part ln the present provincial election,
au the ancient gods were wont to come
down from Olympus and mingle in the
combats of mortal men, honored Fernie
with bis presence last night. It is to
lie feared this great and good man will
bear away with hlm an unfavorable
opinion of Fernie's climate, and of her
reception of himself, lor both were last
night equally frosty, cold and comfortless. His meeting was crowded, bul
the audience seemed to be made up of
critics rather than worshippers, and,
perhaps because of the frequent Interruption's and questions, he grievously
disappointed the Liberals present, who
had been led by their party press to
look for a silver-tongued orator, able
to move rocks aad trees with his eloquence.
For some mysterlouB reason, although the president of tbe Liberal association, fine In the audience, the
chair waa taken by Dr. O. X. Robb.
The first speaker was Mr. Dicken. who.
whatever else Providence has bestowed
upon him, has not the girt of eloquence.
With great difficulty he managed to
struggle through a short but labored
speech, encouraged by a good deal of
gratuitous advice and admonition from
the audience. Mr. J. T. Mortimer, Mr.
Mclnnes' Socialistic opponent In Vancouver, was the next speaki^r. nnd received the bs-st reception and the most
atetntlve hearing of any of those ad
dressing the meeting. He advanced
the usual arguments of Socialism, and
was heartily appluuded as he denounced the conduct of the Liboral party. In
both Dominion and provincial matters.
Mr. Fred Stork, a local Liberal who
Is prominent ln municipal politics, was
the next speaker, and was allowed 20
minutes. He was listened to with ill-
concealed impatience while he held
forth, principally on local matters. Fortunately for himself. Mr. Stork's Ideas
ran out before thc 20 minutes did, and
ho regained his seat in safety before
th" awkward questions that a' sailed
the other speakers began.
Then came forth that heaven-sent
statesman, who refuses any longer to
blush unseen and waste his sweetnesB
ou the desert air or the Yukon. He
began on the old hackneyed themes,
Kaien island and the Columbia &
Western, but theBe well-worn Liberal
guns were spiked last week by Mr.
McBride, and lu consequence proved
Ineffective. Then Mr. Mclnnes turned
his attention to the Socialists, who
were al the meeting in considerable
force and In. fine fettle. They did not
let the speaker forget for very long at
any one time the old Nanaimo days,
when he asked for no higher distinction Ihan to be called a Socialist himself. Mr. Mclnnes was unfortunate
enough to lose hie temper more than
once in the course of his remarks, and
arter a series or altercations with his
questioners ln the audience. In which
the chairman had to Interfere more
thnn once, he finally cut his speech
short and retired from the fray.
The Socialist party, by tholr luctlCB
In this campaign, have Irreparably
damageil the Liberal cause, and It Is
now cons'dered within the bounds of
possibility thut the socialist candidate
may poll more votes than ths- Liberal.
Thai between thorn tliey will sp'lt the
opsiosltion vote nnd allow the Conservative candldats* lo be easily elected,
no one now doubts for a moment.
Veteran of Lower    Mainland    Replies
With    Old-Time   Vigor    to    Wild
Words of John Oliver.
Stoveston, Jan. 17.���Hon. F. Cnrter
Cotton, president of the coucil, speaking at Richmond threw interesting
light on the opposition policy of obstruction and exposed the Inconsistency ot
Mr. Oliver.
Speaking or tho Columbia & Western
laud grant, Mr. Cotton snid he had a
personal Interest in the matter, because when th ��� Semiin government was
in power they hail made a bargain with
Iho C. P. R. to take a caah subsidy,
figuring out. at about 211 cents per aero
In lieu of these land), but at thc nexl
sis sion, afler this wns agreed to, lhe
Semiin government went ont of powor
and the measure was never carried
though, Mr. Martin had said at that
lime thut In making this offer they
were going to give wortbless lands for
good cash, yet' some of these lands had
Bfnco beeu sold at prices ranging anywhere from $10 to $500 per acre, as
they comprised some of the finest fruit
land ln the Kootenay. Mr. Oliver bad
said tn the house two years ago that
that contract with the C. P. R. was the
best contract he had ever known, but
why did not Mr. Oliver say that when
ihis measure was brought up ln 1900?
Why did he not say, "We will give you
23 cents an acre and take these lands
back?' The fact was that the only
thing Mr. Oliver did In that session
was to sign a round robin asking for
the sessional indemnity to be raised
from $600 to $800. Yes, the farmer's
friend in 1900, when the province was
In a bad way, did not think it a bad
thing io raise his salary for two months
to $800, which In a year would come up
to $4800, the sum that Mr. Mclnnes
said he expected to get for giving up
the governorship of the Yukon.
"Not only," continued Mr. Cotton,
"have we been able to reduce deficits
but we have started also to reduce taxation, and J believe, as my friend Mr.
Tatlow says, that the time will come,
when by wise and prudent administration and the encouragement of our Industries we can do altogether without
direct taxation. The revenue from the
mines and timber Industries will be sufficient for our needs without asking
Ihe taxpayers to pay one cent in direct
taxation. But If onr Liberal friends
go fn they can not do that, because If
you read Mr. Macdonald's speech In
the house two years asgo. you will see
that he promised that they would at
once alter the timber regulations,
whereas. I bold that nothing haB done
so much for tho welfare of the province
nt large, by the employment it has
given and the market It has created
for agricultural and other industries,
as the fostering of our timber trade.
Yet we are only beginning. What has
this government done that it should not
have done, or what haa it left undone
that Its opponents could do? Mr. Oliver
goes round like an organ-grinder. His
reper:oire Is confined to these and he
can not get beyond them. Ask him how
he would develop the resources of the
province or reduce taxation and he
knows nothing about it. He lives entirely in the past.
We want to know whether there Ib
going lo be stability in our province,
as for the past three years. If we have
draw* this province out of Insolvency
and make it solvent and of good repute,
la it not reasonable that you should
trust us to go on with that work? We
do not say we have yet built up the
industrial and commercial fabric, but
we have laid the foundation and we
mean to go on till British Columbia becomes In every respect the finest province in the Dominion.

uniting Losses of Life
in Jamaica
Stories of Death and Disaster Come
From Other Parts ol Island-
Relief Arriving.
New York, Jan. 18.���The latest official report of the Jamaica disaster
reached this city today from Quanta-
namo, Cuba, through Admiral Evans,
who had received it from Admiral Davis, wbo was sent to Kingston on the
torpedo boat Whipple, a brief wireless
report of tbe Bltuation in the stricken
city. Admiral Davis reported that
Kingston was almost destroyed; that
400 persons were killed and that 500
others were In hospital. The despatch
was sent Thursday morning and further reported that Kingston was then
quiet. The Whipple started to return
to Guantanamo with a full report of
the situation yesterday and should have
reached the American naval base during the night. Direct advices to the
Associated Press from Kingston under
date of January 16, received early today, stated that the disaster was as
great aB the calamities of San Francisco and Valparaiso. Thousands of
persons, it was believed, had been killed, as the dead were then being recovered fro mthe ruins in hundreds. A
pumber of Americans were among the
killed. The city is In ruins, but the
shipping ln the harbor is safe, and
aboard theBe vessels the wounded are
being cared for. The despatch also
states that the topography of the country has been changed as a result, of
fhe earthquake disturbances, and that
tb���annel Into Kingston harbor bad
b*^' .-.serially altered. The body of
Sn "Sanies Ferguson, who was killed,
was fouud and burled on the day the
despatch was sent. There have been
a number of shocks since the first disaster and the repetition ls keeping
the people in constant terror.
Ottawa, Jan. 18���Sir Wilfrid Laurler
Ib now in communication with tbe governor of Jamaica as to what kind of
assistance would be most acceptable
to Kingston sufferers ln view of the
calamity which hae overtaken them.
Cauadas will likely follow the course it
did ln connection with the San Francisco disaster.
Giamenara, Cuba, Jan. 18.���Rear Ad-
miia' Davis, who went to Kingston
with lhe American ships, sent a wireless report to Rear Admiral Evans at
Guantanamo this morning. The de-
spai Is In.lows:
The American torpedo boat Whipple
left Kingston this morning and is due
at Guantanamo at 10 o'clock tonight
with full details of the situation at
Kingston. Read Admiral Evans first
heard of the disaster on Tuesday night
by means of an Interrupted wireless despatch, and prepared to Bend ships to
the scene. Wednesday morning he reoelved a cable despatch from Governor
Hagoon to Bend medical supplies. The
Whipple started Instantly at a speed
of 25 knots, carrying all the surgical
supplies the fleet could spare. The
battleships Missouri and Indiana followed and both arc now in Kingston
harbor but unable to communicate by
wireless with Admiral Evans owing to
an Intervening mountain. Communication, however, is maintained through
Ihe Colon, which is lying off the port.
Rear Admiral Evans sent the battleships because he knew no English
troops were In Kingston and he feared
looting by the negroes there.
Rome, Jan. 18.���The Vatican authorities last night received the first dlrecl
confirmation of the disaster at Kingston. The pope, who was most affected, ordered instructions to be sent to
Ihe bishop of Jamaica to organize assistance for the sufferers.
. Port of Spain, Trinidad, Jan. 18.���The
legislative council haB voted ��1600 as
th... first Installment from the people
of Trinidad for the .ellef of the earthquake sufferers In Jamaica. H. M. S.
Indefatigable has .sailed for Jamaica
with provisions, clothing and other supplies.
Kingston, Jan. 18.���The disaster here
is as great as the calamities of San
Francisco and Valparaiso. Thousands
of people have been killed, the dead
bodies are being taken from the debris
by hundreds. The whole town is In
ruins and the greater portion is still
smouldering ashes. The smell of burning flesh pervades the air. The cable
line Into Kingston Is broken and the
correspondent had to go lo Holland
Bay (40 miles east) to file this message.
The earthquake came as a sudden oscillation, not from any particular direction but up and down. Thousands of
persons were ln the streets at the time
and great numbers   of    them    were
crushed. Many Americans in Kingston
were killed and have been buried. Realizing tb; possibility or famine tbe
people made attempts to loot. Tbe
military, however, at once took possession of the foodstuffs, detachments of
troops wllh fixed bayonets being placed on guard. They were concentrated
In a central position. No one is Billowed to pass through the ruined sections of the city. Kingston Is threatened with a failure of the water supply, owing lo the bursting of a reservoir, and no water will be obtainable
before tomorrow. The military Buffered severely, tbe hospital camp,
where there were several hundred soldiers, being burned and a number of
men losing their lives. Major W. Har-
dyman and Lieutenant Leader are dead.
Colonel J. R. Delahaye and Major Law-
renzon aro seriously Injured. Part of
the town of Port Royal has sunk and
tko men were drowned. The batteries
sunk eight feet, killing a sapper. In
several places the water is spouting
through the debris.
Port Antonio, on tbe north part of
the island, suffered little damage. The
Hotel Tilchfield with 100 American
guests, was not destroyed. A tidal
wave has Inundated Anotta Bay, washing out many houses. The shock was
severe at Richmond and this town also
was destroyed by fire. Spanish Town
was also damaged, one man being killed
and ten men Injured.
lt Is reported that at Anotta Bay the
crater of the volcano Is emitting
flames and smoke, and It is thought
the earthquake originated there. The
records of Jamaica contain no previous
mention of the activity of this volcano.
Appeals have been sent to all sections
of the Island asking for assistance.
Foodstuffs are needed above all things
The steamer Bella from Philadelphia
arrived h*e yesterday with a small
cargo of provisions.
Nelson's Relation to Lumbering Industry Improved by Recent Convention and Banquet.
The annual meeting of 1907 of tbe
Mountain Lumbermen's Association
has passed into history. The meeting
was the best attended In the history
of thc organization, nearly the entire
membership being present. In addition there were numerous representatives of the coast Washington associations. The latter were here mainly to
take part in a social gathering, but
their presence at Informal conferences
helped ln the creation 0( a friendly
understanding, not destructive of
healthy competition, but making for
uniformity in methods, which is ln the
Interest of the public.
The Black Cat banquet was only the
climax���and a fitting one���to the entirely friendly conferences of the day.
The success of both business convention and banquet is admitted to be
due chiefly to the tact and industry of
George P. Wells, the association's faithful and efficient secretary.
The last act of the convention waa
performed at the ' Strathcona laat
night, consisting of repeated "tigers"
for George Wells, wbo was voted a
jolly good fellow several times.
1 The gathering marks an epoch In the
history of British Columbia lumbering,
which has been benefitted by the general return ot stability and prosperity
to the province. The selection of Nelson for the place of meeting means not
only the recognition of the importance
of the Mountain Association but of the
position of Nelson as the centre of the
lumbering Industry of the Interior.
Statement of  Expenditure  by  Nelaon

of life.
Premier's Tour is March
of Triumph
Liberal and "Socialist  Candidates
Both Declined Invitation to Speak
���Sat Is Scene
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Porks, B. C, Jan. 17.���About
600 citizens of Grand Forks nearly one
sixth of them ladles, gathered in the
opera house tonight and heard the political issues of the day discussed by
the Hon. Richard McBride, W. J.
Bowser, K. C, and BL Killer, the Conservative candidate. The meeting waa
described by the premier as the moat
happy and one of the largest he had
addressed on his present tour, and it
was quite apparent to him, judging by
the prevailing spirit, that the opponents of Mr. Miller were wasting their
time in the content.
W. H. M. May, principal of the high
school, occupied the chair and in opening tho meeting Invited H. Gregory, tabor-Liberal, and G. Mclnnes, the Socialist candidate, to come upon the platform and take part In the discussion.
Both failed to respond. When Mr. Hitler wae Introduced by the chairman,
men of all classes, ladles, and even the
small boys who numbered about a
doaen Joined ln the applause nnd Issued
a grand volume ot tribute to hla popularity. The candidate, who ta a young
lawyer, established a right to be classed
as a conscientious student ot provincial
aod Dominion politics, and an able exponent of the principles he haa adopted,
with excellent promise ef developing Into one ot the foremost public speakers
of the provlnoe.
He wu prond and pleased he aald,
to be on the platform with Premier MoBrlde and Mr, Bowaer. He wae prond
to have the prlvlege of appealing aa a
Conservative candidate for a seat In the
leglalaturo of Brltbh Colombia. Aa a
native son of this province, he felt for
lt as any one preaent might feel tor
their native place. He desired to aee
it progress in the right direction ��nd
to consummate this desire lt was neeea
aary to have wise and honest government. The MoBrlde administration was
admitted to be the beat the province
had had for 15 years. The stable and
satisfactory conditions that had, ln such
a short time been brought out of tmt-
solvency and confusion were indisputable testimony of honest capability and
hard work.
The opposition haa produced no policy except one of abuse. The government had been subjected to many attacks, and yet lt never hesitated to
grant an open Inquiry without restriction as to scope, and on every occasion It had been vindicated..
Mr. MiUer discussed the positions of
his two opponents. As to Mclnnes he
considered him to be a good citizen and
a man fitted to represent the riding ln
the legislature were it not for the fact
that he was a champion of the principles of Socialism.
Mr. Gregory he knew and liked, and
was sorry for him. ln conclusion Mr.
Miller gave a clear and concise statement of the position of the McBride
government before the electorate, and
submitted that the people In their own
Interests would be nowise to refuse to
return lt to power. He promised to go
Into detail on local questions, such for
Instance as the eight hour day, on a future occasion.
The meeting wound up with load
cheers for the Conservative party, Pre-
mier McBride and Mr. Miller.

Be manipulated the ileal Jhat the buyer
paid $10,000 for It, and his middlemen
friends pocketed the $30,000. How Ions
would such a broker remain in business
at   Kaslo?"
Mr, Keen is, or has been, a mining
promoter, if he got a bond on a property at $10,000, and later sold it for
$40,000, would he consider himself a
thief? Or would he divide up thf* margin? However, the facts are a-s far
astray as the logic, in Mr. Keen's
"clever" Illustration. Here is the
sworn statement of K. V. Hodwell, K.
("*.: "In every respect the grant was in
ticcur.lance with tlte anaiigement, and
ii was made directly to the company.
The Grand Trunk Pacific paid the $10,-
000 for the land and the land was turned over to them. The only thing ihey
weru asked to pay Mr. Larsen for were
the expenses Of the survey, and 1 don't
think they really paid all of those ex-
penSBSj as I think Mr. Larsen expended
mnre than he received; 1 do not know
particularly ahout that because I was
1 not present at the settlement. It was
made between Mr. Morse and Mr. Larsen in Montreal. But the Grand Trunk
Pacific got this laiul for $10,000, and
for a sum which did not exceed, If it
equalled, the actual expenses of the
survey. No one has any interest in it,
directly or indirectly, contingent or
otherwise, in the lands, except the government as to their quarter interest,
and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company as to their three-quarter interest. No one has any agreement, or
arrangement for sharing in any of the
profits. In fact, there is no interest in
the land, or In the profits, except the
intert-Bt of the government,, and ihe interest of the company." Probably the
sworn statement of a leader uf the bar
of ihe province is at least as reliable
as the campaign eloquence of John

Hi.Tn.1. TEUMS.
The local Liberal organ hus made a*
statement that tlu> MoBrlde -government has noi sufficiently pressed the
claim for "better terms" on the part of
the province, ii apparently overlooks
tht* fact that as far back nn 1908 the
government, through Mr. Wilson, then
attorney general, presented the claims
of the province to the Hon. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier,  nol  only personally,  but  by
letter, an appears hy the -Sessional papers oi 1908-4, page <i I;"', and anion);
other peculiar conditions which are
urged as grounds for -tne claim.-- were
the following:
i. The cost or administration owing
to the physical character of tin- country. ,
8, The extreme Isolation of the prov
fnoe, which adds largely to the cosl
of the consumer on account of freight
rates lo the I-*ast.
:{. The distance from the markets
of the world in which the British Columbians have to sell Iheir products.
Although the grounds for better
terms were then placed before the Liberal government hy letter, no satisfaction whatever was ohtained aud on the
24th of December, 1803, the Hon. Mr.
McUride, as premier of the province,
wrote to llie Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
oK-kin, setting forth the requirements'
of lhe province and a skint; for better
terms. He spoke of the fact lhat the
question of better term., had so far not
become a party issue and should be
considered on Its merith and free
from partizan considerations. He further gave a: note of warning ttt the Dominion government as to the future In
the event of the just demand of the
province not being acceded to, as follows: "Whatever phase ft may assume
in future years of course will depend
to a large extent upon the attitude
which the Dominion government may
hereafter assume; hut for tlie present
we prefer to deal with it and with the
Dominion government in respect to it
from a purely non-partizan point of
view. All the representations made to
you have heen conceived and couched
fu that spirit. Either they are worthy
of consideration, and therefore of reply, or they are not. If no reply be
forthcoming Ihey must, perforce, become the basts of an agitation and will,
in that event, undoubtedly enter the
arena of partizan debate very soon."
This manly, straightforward letter
was written to the Hon, Sir Wilfrid
Laurler In December, 1908, The response that was vouchsafed to this letter was evawive, unsatisfactory and
amounted io a refusal and the remarks
or the Hon. Mr. MoBrlde as to tin* matter Immediately becoming the basis of
an  agitation were misconstrued.
The spirit of fairness and desire for
���adjustment of the rights of the province free from partizan considerations
is still evidenced by the statements of
Mr. MoBrlde, Still the electors must
not overlook the fact that when thc
stand ot the Dominion governmenl Is
considered witli respect to better terms
Hie defeat of the McHrlde administration would be assumed as au indication lhat the people of this province
dif) not support him in his demand for
belter terms.
Mr. McBllde'S language, quoted
above, shows clearly his desire lo prevent the question becoming the subject,
or even one subject, of party division.
Tha' It has b c .me such, is end rely*
due to the Liberal party press. The
Conservative party now stands for the
maintenance of the rights of the province, Ihe Liberal party for the treacherous and corrupt submission to the Ottawa machine.
John Keen, We are told on irreproachable authority, scored heavily at the
Kaslo meeting Tuesday night by the
following "clever" Illustration, so clover thai   ft was  reproduced editorially:
"What would a prospector say to a
mining  broker,  who, when authorized
According tn his own report, in hjjs
own paper, of his own speech at Rossland, F. J. Deane devoted nearly all]
his time to a "proof," discovered by;
himself of a corrupt alliance between
the McBride government, and the C.
P. R. company. The "proof consisted
in the fact that the morning train on
which he travelled from Nelson to
Rossland, was detained 45 minutes to
i nahle the premier and Mr. Bowser to
go through on iheir arrival from Kaslo. Does Mr. Deane not know, or has
he forgotten, thai the holding of the
Kaslo Liberal convention at Lardo K- f
January !�� waB made possible by a Bilh
ilar courtesy of the C. P. R. officials/
who delayed both the Kootenay lake
and the Lardo-Gerrard train for two
hours for the accommodation of the
delegates? Quite apart from thaty
though it should have been known lo
the editor of any paper in the district,
could anything be much more childish
than a serious attempt to base a
charge of corrupt understanding on a
comparatively trifling courtesy shown
by subordinate officials? ,
The Liberal press, conscious, presumably of the complete surrender of
its party to the Grand Trunk Pacific,
is bent on believing that Premier McBride has Bold himself to the C. P. R.
Probably it is impossible for a liberal
politician to believe that a public man
with an opportunity to sell himself
should refuse to do so. It is evidently
luconceivable to the machine party.
But surely In the present case they
have overshot the mark. There are
two big railway corporations now in
the province, the C. P. R. and the
Great Northern, and two more coming,
the G. T. P. and the Canadian Northern. Mr. McBride lias been accused
of corrupt dealings with each of the
four. He went to New York to sell
himself to J. J. Hill; he sold himself
to the G. T. P. In connection with
Kaien island; now he and R. F. Green
are In the pay of the Canadian Northern. How, why, when, where and for
ho wmucb, he sold out to the C. P. IX.
"it doth not yel appear." Perhaps the
Llbeal e ditos are better judges than
we of the mental health of their
In our esteemed contemporary's special corres|x)ndent's reports of Liberal
meetings, the bracketed "cheers" and
"wild applause" have evidently been
mlsplactd, Alternative explanations
are that tho authors of the cheers were
Intoxicated and irresponsible, or that,
as during J. A. Macdonald's speech in
Nelson, the faithful cheered feebly for
politeness at regular intervals, and
quite re.;a dies* of the subject matter.
At thc beginning of the campaign ft
was intended lhat ,7. A. Mucdonald
should do his talking at the coast, and
Willie and John Oliver should spellbind the interior���a wise arrangement
by which each should appear as far as
possible from home and intimate ec-
nuaintance. It Is too had that the candidature of Lome Campbell In Rossland
and Frank McKenzle In Delta hnva]
frightened J. A. and John out of their
prudent plans.   Willie, of course, can

Conservative   Candidate    Got All the
Applause at Meeting Called by
Dr. King.
MiMt^romfortRhle quartern ln Nelson,
Only the beat ol Uiiuoin and tigars.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Cranbrook, Jan. 17.��� The most enthusiastic friend of Dr. King will admit
that his reception sit Ub own meeting
tonight wns austerely chilling. The
doctor received a few unconvincing
cheers from rooters at the back of the
hall and at long Intervals during a long
address some of these tn the body of
tin- hall were moved to applause of the
.drawing room or academe! variety. The
speaker did not appear to believe in
Mb own arguments and this was reflected by the cold reserve in which his
Bpeech was listened to.
J. A. Harvey followed Dr. King and
was splendidly received. The meeting
was a Harvey meeting if hearty and
long-conlnued aipplause counted for
anything. About the best point made
by the doctor was that Harvey was the
dispenser of the government patronage
during the life of the McHrlde government.
Harvey In his reply turned the point
beatifully on the doctor by saying be
was delighted to have It stated on a
public platform and by a political op
ponent that he, Harvey, was responsible
for whatever good came to the Cranbrook division while its parliamentary)-
representative sat In the xold shades
of the opposition.
That touch of "cut' and thrust*
caught tho ear of the house which
fairly rose to him. Aud onco again
when he referred to Mclnnes as the
"Young Political Moses" who was
brought down from the "frozen tundra
of the Yukon" to lead thc hordes of
the Orand Trunk to the promise land
of the spoiling of the prosperity of Hritish Columbia," the house fairly shook
with laughtor, applause and cheers. "I
think," continued Harvey, "that Mr. Mc
lnnes Is less likely tn lead a majority
of the Liberals to the treasury benches
than he ls to land them in the soup."
Harvey waH in splendid form and delighted hlB supporters who were If any
thing more numerous than the Liberals.
He turned the Qrlt assemblage Into a
great Conservative rally which will
make ifs eftect felt fur and wide In the
At the sending of this wire Mclnnes
In trying to cast his Incantations on the
audience. He ls fighting as bad a frost
as ever chilled as budding politician.
