Meet Electors of Salt
Spring Island
Comparison of Methods and Achievements of Present Government
Wiih Forerunners.
Several ministers of Premier Mc-
Ilrlde's cabinel addressed large nnd
enthusiastic gatherings on Sail Spring
Island, al (hinges' Harbor aud other
places last week. In addition to the
addresses delivered by the attorney-
general, Mr. A. C. McPhllllppa and
Mr. Cllve Phlllps-Wolley, the Hon. R.
P. Green, chief commissioner of lands
nnd works, gave an account of his
stewardship to the evident satisfaction
of bis audience and the complete rout
of nil opposition criticism. As many
matters touch n) upon by Mr. Green
are of provincial Interest, we reproduce his address as reported by a correspondent who wns present at the
lu opening his remarks Mr. Green
look occasion to refer to the large attendance, afler which be stated that
his opening remarks were going to be
a comparison between the present und
past governments. While he was In
ihe opposition, he had always maintained that the ministers should visit
every dimilet. to ascertain their wnnis.

Tor the assistance they had given the
government regarding fruit growing,
especially when times were hard aud
lhe fruit growing industry only in its
Regarding the limber Industry, he
staled that It was in a better condition today than ever before, nml the
giivernment are annually getting a
much greater revenue. Tbe government deserved and took Borne credit
for these things. The timber licenses
were now well regulated, and could only be obtained in a fair mnnner, and
unless the taxes were paid the owners
could not hold their limits. The lumber industry was thriving, and there
wns not a sawmill in the province that
did not have n market for nil tbe lumber It could cut.
Party  Government a  Success.
In referring to a party government,
he'suid that it was the greatest thing
Unit had ever happened in British Columbia. He pointed out that in previous governments it was an easy matter
for a member to cross the floor of tlte
bouse to the opposition for any small
reason, or if be coul.l obtain something
for his district. But now with u party
government it was different, and a
member would not desert his party on
pique or without good cause. He wus
of the opinion that with straight party
government it was possible to get better legislation than in pasl years. Since
Ihe present government had been in
power he did not have as much money
lo expend on roads, trails and bridges.
because the former government left the
finances in such a state that it was
Impossible to obtain money to keep
up ihe work. But Ihe government had
attended to lhe business of Ihe province as ihey would their own. and al-
ile.ugh Ihey had passed some hard
legislation, the people were satisfied,
and In any hye-eleellon the electors had
shown lhal Ihey wero In sympathy
with the government He clfed the
ense In Alhernl. where an opposition
majority .vns turned into a government
Regarding wharves, he stated that
lhe provincial government had nothing
to do with bnlldlng wharves. The Dominion government bad control over
the steamship lines and Waterways,
and Ihey should attend to the wharves.
He advised the electors to lake the
question up with their representatives
at Ottawa and nsk them why they
built wharves for the east and not In
British Columbia.
A gentlemnn in tbe audience slated
thai the Dominion government were
not only constructing whnrvts In the
easl, bul had bull! one in a duck pond
lhat dries up In the summer.
"Yes." said Mr. Greon, "they will
build a wharf anywhere In fhe east,
but how about British Columbia? How
about Hint ?1 l.iino.noo they have taken
from British Columbia since confederation? Give British Columbia better
terms, and Ihe provincial government
will attend to all Hie Wharves that nre
Regarding lhe trunk ronds. he said
that the past government had paid nil
cost of maintenance of trunk roads,
whether they were in municipalities or
not, but the present government absolutely refused to pay one cent for trunk
roads In municipalities.
Regarding railways, he stated that
during the lust three weeks he had
seen men grading on Ihe Kootenay
Central railway, which the government
had been told for Ihe Inst two years
would not be constructed till the government subsidized II; but still the
const rucl ion was going on. During his
trip he had crossed tho grades for
three railways, none of them receiving
any subsidy. If Ihe railway was a necessity It would nol need a grant, and
If it was not necessary it would never
be built. Any subsidy that was given
went, to the promoter, but If the railway could not be constructed for the
trade It was to receive, It would never
be built for any 15,000 a mile.
Continuing, Mr. Green sold: "I have
been told that you want to elect your
own road boss. All I can tell you Is
that as long as I um at Ihe head of the
department I will tie responsible for
any road boss that Is appointed."
He pointed out that the road boas
was responsible to him, and his colleagues to the party, and the party to
the people.
"This is fhe condition of nlTalrs, and
If you can prove to) me that the road
boss is not competent. I will seon set
that a competent man ts appointed;
and if I allow an incompetent, man to
occupy the position, my colleagues
should ask me to quit. If he were not
capable of making the road boss do his
duty he should be kicked out.
"As long as the Conservatives of the
district make representations to us
for improvements, we will attend to
them, but we will not overlook any
recommendations of the Liberals."
He was not doing work to catch
votes, but was doing the work for the
best interests of the province of British Columbia.
In comparison to the opposition, he
declared that the government were
working for the best Interests of every
district. The opposition, on the other
hand, were working for a pull-down
policy, nnd they would rather Indulge
in small personalities and use muck
rakes to drag the government in the
slime In a vain endeavor to blacken
their characters. He slated that since
he had bad charge of the department
he had worked to the best of his knowledge, and In future he would do his
best for the Interests not only of Ihis
district, but for all the provinces.
On a question from tlte audience,
Mr. Green stated that they would ac
cept suggestions from anyone, whether
he was a Conservative or Liberal, as
long as It was In the: Interest of the
Regarding the attorney-general's de
partment. Mr. Fulton referred to the
work done in the recent train hold-up.
when the train robbers had been cap
tured and sentenced within a monUi
from the time of the hold-up. This, he
considered, was sufficient to show that
the department was well managed, and
he hoped that the Dominion authorities
would not step In and release the cul
prits as Ihey did in n recent case.
The C. P. R. Branch  Line of Railway
Nearing Completion���Coal and
Gold Prospects.
After a year's steady work on construction, the branch line of the Canadian Pacific railway in the Nicola valley will be ready for acceptance about
the 1st of July, as far as Coutlee. The
remaining miles to Nicola lake will be
constructed this year, final plans for
which are now being prepared. Freight
i3 now being carried, over the line.
The completion of this new brunch
marks another step in the policy of the
0. P. R. for the development of the
province. It will bring Coutlee within
leu hours' run ol Vancouver, obviating a 4i)-mlle stage ride to Speuce's
Bridge, the point of Junction.
Ranching has been the chief feature
of life In the, Nlcolu valley up to tbe
present, but with railway transportation an impetus will be given to mining. Large and valuable properties,
principally copper, are located along
the line, and several coal propositions
will probably be Immediately developed.
"We will welcome the advent of the
railway," remarked one of the old-
timers when asked about the new
method of transtxtrtation. "It will give
us the means to compete with other
districts, and give us access to markets. Produce will now be worth
something, .and a great difference will
be noted in Ihe valley. Besides, It will
mean the world to those who are interested In mining propositions, for
these will now be developed. Up to
lhe present it has been almost impossible to open up good prospects, as the
dislance was loo great from a railway."
Coal deposits are one of Ihe mineral
riches of tbe Nicola nnd Simflkttmcen
districts. Coal, however, Is perhaps
Ihe least of tlm mineral wealth. Ten-
mile creek Joins ihe Nico'n river at
Lower Nicola, and twelve miles up the
valley aro valuable gold propositions.
The attention of the Guggenheim syn
dicate has been directed to these, and
these noted mining capitalists have
considered the prospect so favorable
that a second expert is being sent out
by the organization to make a further
report. If these properties are taken
lu band by a company with capital sufficient to develop 'h m thoroughly. It
is said that tho operations of the
Granby company will be repented, so
extensive ami valuable Is the ore. It
ts low grade, but there is plenty of It.
Went to Shoot Pigeons, and a Riot Resulted.
Cairo, Egypt, June 14.���Captain S. C.
Bull, of the Sixth (Innlskllllng) Dragoons, was killed and four other British officers badly Injured by natives
near Tnntnb yesterday. During the
march of a detachment of British
troo|)s from Alexandria, the live officers, apparently upon Invitation of a
village chief, went to a hamlet to shoot
pigeons. The villagers surrounded the
party, deprived the officers of their
guns, and attacked them with bludgeons, with the result that Captain
Bull was killed, another had an arm
broken, and still others were badly Injured. The affair appears to be the
outcome of a recent Pan-Islandic campaign carried on during the Anglo-
Turkish dispute over tbe Tabah boundary.
Port of New York Will Equal All Ports
of the Nation.
New York, June 14.���According to
the World, Commissioner Watcherly
said yesterday that the immigration
through this port for the year ending
June 30 would reach the enormous total of one million souls. This will be
the record for the port of New York
for the year closing June 19th. Immigrants enter nil ports of the nation,
but this year promises that the great
port of New York alone will equal the
total of last year for the whole of the
XInited States.
Up to June of this year a total of
870,000 aliens had been received at
Ellis Island, and by the end of the
month enough more are expected to
bring the total to one million, perhaps
even to 1,200.000. The Immigrants are
from every country In Europe, the
Austro-Hungarians predominating.

Guthrie, Okla., June 14.���Alfred

Byron Cole, near Enidi last week, will
not accept a pardon, but will usk that

Socialism Makes Trouble.
A despatch In the Anaconda Standard from Denver, Colo., gives some
particulars of the trouble in the Western Federation of Miners there. There
are two factions, one favorable to socialism and one opposed to it. Or,
rather, there Is an elment opposed to
the Socialists, who apparently control
the organization. It Is stnted that
Butte MInerB' Union No. 1. 5,000 members strong, may withdraw because of
President Frank O'Copnor, William
Cunningham and other delegates bolting the general convention there.
Sergeant Plnse Acquitted.
Manila, June 14.���A courtmartlal has

named S. W. Macio. Macio attacked
the sergeant while on guard, and Pinse
shot him. Macio died the next day.
Plnse was charged with murder, and
after a long trial be was found not
guilty. The department commander
has npproved the verdict.

enjoy his affluence In a manner forbidden In Canada to all others of his race.
In consideration of the valuable services rendered by Charlie, and of $5,000
"lawful money of Canada," he waa
granted by the Dominion government
for the rest of his natural llle the privilege of drinking as much as he desires
of any fluid. He Is practically exempted from the provisions of the law prohibiting Indians from drinking and
whites from selling liquor to them.
The privilege granted to Charlie,
though possibly not granted for that
purpose. Is resulting in the gradual
transfer of Charlie's wealth to the
Dominion treasury. He show.-* his appreciation of the government's generosity by becoming as drunk as a
white man every day. He Ib regularly
taken tn charge and lined t)26 on being
set at liberty. Aa Charlie had 1100,000
a few years ago, and, except in the
matter of beverages, has no extravagant tastes, he will be able, barring
uccldents, to continue his chosen career for seven or eight years longer.
His friend and companion, and former partner, Skookum Jim, sought to
obtain the same privilege, but was refused, though he ottered $10,000. The
refusal is a further advantage to Charlie, as Jim looks after him regularly
until he Is ripe for police interference.
Tbe last day Mr. White was In White
Horse he was present at an interview
between Skookum Jim and the solicitor who makes formal application for
Charlie's daily release. Jim was told,
after the lawyer had learned the hour
of the arrest and consulted his watch,
that -Charlie would not be ready for liberty  for another half hour.
The system Is probably unique. Charlie feels that he has been generously
rewarded by his country, while the
government Is practically certain to
gain a considerable amount to add to
the surplus.

The province ol British Columbia,
like (.'very other one In the Dominion
federation, hits had to settle the question of its governmental methods, and
bas only within ream years awakened
to the apparent indlspensabflity nf the
party system in iis administration. The
political history of British Columbia
since it entered confederation affords
many Btriklng Illustrations of Lhe facl
thai Bociety, particularly political bo-
clety, is not yet sufficiently advan< ed
to secure satisfactory administration
of iis public offices unless by part)
politics. Thai it .should fall mutually
and easily into the party divisions
which have been predominant In Canada ever since confederation is not a
As a large cumber id our readers
are among tbe more re den! n i identi
01' the provlnt e, a brief review of the
ministries which have held the reins
of power will not be out of place. Since
1872, the McCrelght, the De Cosmos
Walkem, the Elliot, tho Walkora-Bea-
ven, -the Smithe and the Davie ministries followed each other in rapid succession till 1889, when the Robson ministry came Into power. This was in
turn superceded by Lhe accession of the
Davie ministry, which existed until
1896, when it was followed by the
Turner ministry, tlie premier of which
is now the agent-general of British
Columbia in London, England. None
of these governments was called on lo
exercise more than a perfunctory responsibility, as the development of the
j province had not reall) begun, and the
lew local Issues were not of paramount
Importance. In fact, Vancouver Island
unci thr' city of Victoria considered
themselves tbe only localities iu the
province which wen- entitle.i io consideration, ami they were dealt with
according lo their egotistical opinions
of themselves. Almost without excej)-
tion the cabinet ministers up to mis
time Were residents of Victoria, and
nol without tho insular prejudices
which have so often manifested themselves In thai quarter.
The Turner ministry was dismissed
lu 1898, and was succeeded by lhe
Sam I in ministry, nml from thai time
the successive governments of BrltiBD
Columbia have afforded ihe mosl amazing spectacle oi Incompetency ami opportunism thai any of the British colonics could present, until lhe accession
of the McBride government in i 893.
The Martin, Prior nnd Dunsmulr ministries, Which succeeded each other
rapidly helween 1900 nml 1008, pave
unexampled evidence of their shiftless-
ness, and were at all times the subject
of ridicule throughout Canada and tho
British Dmplre. Not only was Ihis lhe
case, hut the commercial credit of tho
province rapidly declined, and hiink-
ruptcy stared it In the face, when   on
June i. 1903^ the lieutenant-gov. in t
dismissed ihe Prior ministry and called
on the lion. Richard McBride t<. form
a government
Mr. McBride had been fur some
time leader of the opposition in the
legislative assembly, but up to thai
time the only division in the house was
that designated government and opposition. The extremity 'if the situation
ami tin- hitherto aimless ami method-
less manner ol appeal to the electorate
decided Mr. McBride to organize the
political forces of the province on the
lines of the old-time parties, and his
fust appeal to th.' country as the head
of its government was as a Conserve
live, with the traditions nnd principles
of that honored party, leaving the opposing forces io anay themselves un
der th.- Libera] banner, it transpire-',
as had been surmised, thai tlie sudden
Introduction of these party divisions
in British Columbia would fur Borne
lime embarrass the electorate, ns they
hail bad no clearly defined political affinities previous to this occasion.
Happily, however, for the province,
th.- Conservatives triumphed. Mr. McBride was returned to power at the
bead of bis cablnel He surrounded
hun-'It uitii colleagues who have acquitted themselves with marked ability and who have discharged their onerous duties in a manner that has .von
tie' confidence of the electorate and restored the province to something of
its wonted credit in the money markets

or ihe problems which they had to
face and theli method of solving tins-'
problems we shall have something
more to Baj.
That there aie two sides to every
question is amply demonstrated hy a

the metric system ami nn exhaustive
argumoul Betting forth the reasons
why it would seriously incommode the
manufacturing Industries of the country and disarrange ihe pasl ami present
in a degree that would undoubtedly Inconvenience more people than seems
at Drat consideration of tlie question.
The     manufacturers     of     the     United
Siiiios. through their spokesman, Mr.
il. ll. Buploe, sei forth their side of the
case in an article in ihe Engineering
Magazine, and ihat they are entllli d
to ;i bearing would seem to 'lie beyond
controversy. in this age of rapid
transitions ami proposed reforms, it
mlghl be welt io fully consider all radical proposals for change in what are
established measurements, as well as
established methods on the American
continent. We trill permit the manufacturers to speak for themselves:
Briefly, the argument' for the metric
system may he reduced to three counts
the greater simplicity of the tables
of wolghts nnd measures; ihe precise
Interrelation of the units of length, dry
ami liquid measure, ami weight; and
the convenience of the decimal system
of notation.
The last is already practically assured hi the English-speaking countries by the general use in all engineering work of the decimal divisions of
ihe inch or tho foot; ihese units of
themselves are even more convenient
than tlie meter or the centimeter. The
second supposed advantage exists only

ami a further wholly practical simpll-
flcatlon might be made without uprooting 'I"1 standards upon which out gigantic Industries have been built
li must be i��� in* inh- n d thai when
France and Germany adopted the metric system, our vast growth of industries, manufactures and metal trades
gt neralij had not come Into being.
Standardization was as yet an unknown Idea, and ihere was prat tically
nothing to undo, The situation today,
however, is abeolutelj different. Industries such t's ili>' world has never
before seen h ive bi en built up in 'he
English s-.. aktng lands, and bave sent
their prodtu   ��� all m >r th;' world.

thn ads ol England and America are

a guide or practically reproduced b) s
workman. Bvi rj pari new standardised to decimals of an Inch would have
redei gned '" commensurable
decimals of n centimeter. Then tlie
new and old would nol Interchange.
All the old machines and all the old
repair parts would become bastard.
And it would lake more than fifty
years of endless confusion and double-
standard working to clear the deplorable ami expensive wreckage out of out-
li musi be undi rstood thai there is
no direct quarrel with the metric system. Let it be adopted wherever it is
more convenient than the present Bystem oi measurement, bin allow people
to use which ever standard Is best
suited to their own business.
Since i860 the citizens of the United
States, whether holding government
positions or engaged In civil industries,
have had the privilege of using either
system legally ami freely. In no case
have tlie friends of the inch attempted
to Impose their views upon the advo-
i a tea ol the mi ter. If ihe advocates
of ihe existing standards should en-
ir 'o Influence legislation to pre-
v.>ni their neighbors from using their
beloved millimeters ami Kilograms, a
fearful howl would arise. Hut. no such
Impertinent Interfen nee is to lie dreamed of. Let tli.' advocates of the meter
be fair-minded enough to give up their
scheme "t Blacking ih<' cards; let
mere be a square deal, ami may the
best system win.
Less than a fortnight ago the Daily
N'ews shared iu the complaints of the
opposition press Lhal Messrs. McBride
���md  Green   were   Louring 'lie  country,
and insinuated that  ihis portended an*
.aily   election.      While   [he   News   did
not have tie- courage to us* the same
phraseology as some of the outside papers, which accused llif premier and
Mr. Green of making campaign trips
ai the expense of tlie conniry. il sympathized wiih ihese papers ami reprinted their slanders. Thoroughly in
harmony wiih iis past record, it now
lias another complaint, and ibis time
one of an exactly different character.
In an editorial this morning, tlie grim
humor of which must flatter the reader, it linds fault that ihe ministers con-
lined their visits to outlying districts,
ami neglected to give an account of
their stewardship in ihe centres of
population, as, for instance, in Nelson.
We presume the ministers know how
io conduct their own business, hut it
BeemB perplexing lo ihe casual reader
lhal iliey aie to be roundly rated one
week for visiting their constituencies,
and lampooned the next weed; for failing    to    do    SO.      Surely    the   0ppO8itlon
lit. ss musl be driven lo reckless straits
when   it   can   advance   lo   better   criii-

Three.   Great   Problems   to   be   Solved
Before  It is  Made
A review of telegraphy, telephony
and wlrelskB telegraphy in 1905 is contributed to Le Nature, I'aria. While
I his review dismisses the llrst two of
theee wiih a few words, it conflnea itself chiefly to tlie last. The review
leavea the reader with tbe Impression
thai the teobnlo of wireless Is not atl-
vanoing rapidly, although ihe Sell) of
its application Is advancing rapidly.
"The use of great energy to produce
bertzlan waves produces, a result that
is always comparatively feeble. On
fhe oilier hand, the attempts to .slew
the waves made by Artoue In Italy
have given no practical result. Along
then lines there has been practically
no progress at all.
"The use of detectors enabling the
operator to read by sound bas become
general. The doteotor most employed
is the electrolytic detector, whose principle was announced In 1900 by Caplaln
Perrle. If a tiny platinum point tu.oi
millimeter in diameter) ba plunged into acidulated water, it constitutes an
imperfect contact of great sensitiveness to hertzian waves.    The    Maieoni
company always uses the magnetic de-
lector Invented by  M&ioonl    in 1902,
which gives excellent  results.
"The applications of wireless telegraphy an- continually extending, All
warships am! large liners have the apparatus; ami new stations on Ian.!, especially in Europe, are continually being erected. The necessity for international regulation becomes more and
more apparent, but the conference on
Ihe subject, which m��t for the flrit
time In llerlin iu 1908, has not reconvened, owing to the opposition of England anil Italy, which countries desire
a   Marconi  monopoly.
"Three great problems remain to ue
solved before it is freed and developed
lo its furthest extent���the 'steering'
of the waveB, the 'tuning' of transmitter to receiver, and the reform ot these
devices. So long as we cannot unite
Into a sheaf the hcrtzian waves that
are now dispersed in all directions, so
long as on Intermediate station can
intercept messages nol intended for It,
ami finally, so long as a special apparatus has not been devised to receive
and transmit these signals, wireless
telegraphy will remain Imperfect
"Telecommunication asks much from
the year 11101',."

A  Rational   Discussion    of    tbe Question.
The Columbian, In speaking on the
question of "better terms." says some
timely and forcible things on thai
question,    Here  they are:
"When so staunch a Liberal as the
premier of Nova Bootla makes a campaign cry of better terms for the smaller provinces from Ilie Dominion of Canada, It muy be taken for granted that
there Is a very substantial case on
their behalf, and lhal party polities
are not ihe Inspiration of the demand.
The issue of the movement 111 Nova
Scolia will he watched with partloular
Interest lu British Columbia, because
there is no province with so much to
gain as we have from a reconsideration of lhe terms of confederal Ion. provided Hint It Is carried on on the basis
of justice, and nol merely made the occasion for rewarding party lid; illy on
Ihe part of the appellant provinces.
"The matter should not he made
one of parly politics. In Itritish Columbia there hns been DO disposition
en the part of the Conservative ml-
ministration, of the province to    make
iwlltical capital out of It; though when
memorial after memorial had been sent
to Ottawa without any reply, it became
necessary to remind Sir Wilfrid that
the matter could not stand over Indefinitely, and that if his government
would not enter upon a discussion of
the subject, it would be necessary to
appeal to the people as a whole to
back up the demand.
"Evidently the government at Ottawa wanted to trifle with the matter, reserving action perhaps until the eve
of a new election, when more liberal
treatment may be ottered as the price
of acquiescence in perpetuation of the
period of loot."
The Columbian only voices the sentiments of the very large' constituency
of ISritlsh  Columbia.

Pollard   Lilliputians    Continue    to   Fill
the  Opera   House.
Two crowded houses greeted tbe Pol
lards yesterday in the afternoon and
evening. During ihe four performances
given by the Lilliputians to date stand
ing room only has been available for
late arrivals. No company playing
more ihan one nlghl iu Nelson bas
ever before caughl and held the favor
of tlie public to anything like the same
The reasons for tho company's imj
ularlty are fairly obvious. Everything
possible, or even conceivable, is done
by the management to show tin children to the best advantage. The
young performers have perfect knowledge of the roles assigned them, and
enter into them with a,/.est and verve
often lacking in the work of more mature players. The freshness of grace
or' childhood also gives a charm to the
productions which a majority of playgoers prefer to the more faultless work
ni tried and blase actors and actresses.
The hill for yesterday's matinee was
"The Lady Slavey." which was successfully presented to a large audience
composed chiefly of holies and children.
In the evening "The Geisha" was
produced, und was the besl perform
a nee of the week so far. Eva Moore,
as the Queen of the Geisha, was brilliant Teddy MoNamara, as the China-
man, fully sustained the reputation he
has made in the earlier performances,

While it In risky to nuilte predictions
two years ahead about politics In the
United stnii'H, or in any other country,
It begins to look likely thai Mr. Bryan
will again he nominated for the presidency by the Democratic party, His
very defeats, ;ik Collier's points out,
both in liis campaigns, and especially
in the convention of 1904, hnve left him
Btronger wiih tbe middle-western voters, who have always been tbe basis
of his strength, reeling thai he has
never had a fair opportunity, thai be
had more voles than McKlnloy in) one

corporation money is now shown clearly to have been used in large sums io
compass his defeat, and thai the men
who dominated tbe convention of i""i
were corporation servants, the Bryan
