INCREASE IN RECEIPTS
Year's Return* From Tramway System
Will  Be  Satisfactory���Gain  of
SO Per Cent.
*nie tramway -returns for tbe week
eaitlng_Dectmber 23 showed a slight Increase over those of the several weeks
preceding, being $129.26, as against
SIUS.1S for the corresponding week of
.last year. The returns lor the year
to date, with eight days remaining, are
16788, against 15379.86 for a similar
period of 1905.
The average receipts for the year,
summer and winter, calculated on lbe
time of actual operation, are about
1160 a week, an Increase of fully 60
per cent, over the earnings of 1905.
The total for tbe year will probably
be about ��6926, about 12000 less than
ordinary operating expenses, but nearly |2000 more than wae estimated. Of
the deficit, as it Is less than ��2600, the
city will pay only to per cent., between MOO and *900. To this amount
must be added Uie oxpeuditure on repairs and renewal ol stock, which had
to be met last February.
As the expense of operation Is about
J176 a week, lt can readily he Been
that a- very small Increase In lhe receipts next year will enable the service to show a credit balance. Before
thc end of January, perhaps at the end
ot the first week. Ibe tramway service
will be a consumer or city power, thus
iiri.irillng also a small Indirect profit.
On the whole, there Is every reason
to believe that before the end of Its
four years* lease of the tramway system the clly will be at least even on
the transaction, besldcB having avoid
ed Ihis unfortunate consequences ol
allowing the service to lapse.

FEDERAL HffiHHMU. PUT UP JOB
Mclnnis' Gingerly Treatment of Local Invitation Scouted--Oliver Offended Because He is Overlooked by Liberals in Choice of New Leader
(Special  io The  Daily  Canadian.)
Victoria, B. C, Dec. 28.���While a
certain section of the Liberal party
here profess to be elated at the intrusion of Mclnnis into the provincial
arena, a great many of the more sober-
minded grits resent Mclnnis1 boom,
saying that if a leader was wanted to
replace Macdonald, plenty of good timber is available in the party already,
without importing Mclnnis, citing in
this regard the claims of John Oliver
of Delta, who, by the way, is said to
be sore at the "machine" for upsetting
his leadership aspirations by issuing
the invitation to Mclnnis.
The popular sentiment is one of antipathy to Mclnnis, as to the manner
in which his dramatic re-entry Into the
politics of this province was brought
about, and it is taken as clearly indicating that the federal government at
Ottawa is reaching out for the direct
control of the affairs of the province
of British Columbia. Had Mclnnis
come down from the Yukon at the in
vitatfon of the Liberals of British Columbia it would have been different,
but at it is it looks like an Ottawa
"Jop."
J. B. Hobson, manager of the Caribou
Consolidated Mining company, who ii
here, pays a great tribute to the McBride government. In an interview he
says the present flourishing condition
of the mining industry Is no doubt
due to the fact that the McBride government brought about a feeling of
stability and restored confidence In the
province >n the minds of Investors.
Hon. C. E, Pooley was nominated
for Esquimau district last eveninj
amidst great enthusiasm.
The rapid and kaleidoscopic changes
ln the Liberal party's plans has been
the one topic of conversation throughout the city and district since the appearance of The Canadian last evening
with (he announcement that J. A. Macdonald is to be deposed from leadership of the opposition at the command
of W. W. B. Mclnnis. While the country has been curious over the resignation of R. F. Green from the cabinet
ihe sudden collapse of the Liberal
leader has already displaced this marvel from Iheir minds. It is generally
admitted by Liberals as well as by
Conservatives of any considerable
political experience tbat the opposition stood no chance of election in appeal to the country on the issues out
of which they have endeavored for
three years to manufacture the fabric
for iheir campaign. The most heart
less and disgraceful endeavor to win
sympathy by scandalous attacks upon
the personal and public characters of
the members of the McBride ad minis
t rat ion had all hopelessly failed to find
r��� ��; ons.- among the stolid populace
who ask for fac-trs nol fictions and
proofs   instead   of  baseless  assertions.
enceau cabinet, as made in the French
senate, was entirely wrong The Prussian law, although hard nnd unjust toward the church, explicitly recognizes
thnt Catholic hierarchy as the foundation of the church, while the fundamental principle of the church and
state separation law and of Hrlnnd's
bill is to ignore the hierarchy and to
Impede in an unjustified manner th*
ordlnary practice of religion."
Costly and Fateful Romance.
Brussels, Dec 28.���Andre GHron, who
achieved considerable notoriety three
yearB ago hy eloping with lho then
crown princess of Saxony, was married here yesterday to Mile. Jeannie
Braem, who Is 12 yenrs his senior.
Giron agreed to a pecuniary compromise with tho family of the crown
princess and then abandoned her. This
elopement cob! lhe crown princess, the
crown queen of Saxony, the loss of
ber children and expulsion from the
Imperial house of Hapsburg.
Save up your pennies nnd your heirs
will squander your dollars.
Left without the only campaign material wiih wh.cn they were familiar, it
was Boon discovered lhat like the
scriptural foolish oner, tbey had no oil
lu liieir lamps. The Qpor of the provincial eamjiaigu miglr open at once
but thoy weie unprepared. Many have
btea the suggestions ufrered by the
i-aiti-ans of both Victoria and Vancouver, but all attempts to harmonize
these two cUies ln their political am-
tiltitns and leconcfle (heir factions
have faikd. it is reported that Victoria has little fault to find with the
McBiide adm.nistiation, and even the
l-.b iai leaders there have admitted
the creditable record of the government. Such retius^niSB and disloyalty
en the part of the Liberal organization
tiiere has been heart breaking to Uon.
Mr. Templeman, who, it iu said, Ib
chit fly re.pjnsible for foicing Mclnnis
upo.i the patty in British Columbia at
this time.
Every Inducement offered to Mr.
Kalph Smith to assume the leadership
of the provincial Liberals has failed,
aa Mr. Smith is too much a favorite
at Ottawa owing to his former prestige with the labor circles. Besides,
Mr. Smith has evolved ln>o a finished
diplomat and on more than one occa-
.-iou has rtscu<d the Laurier administration from almost certain discredit
and loss of prestige in the province.
He Is, therefore, said to be on the high
toad to substantial preferment in some
Biib-cablnel position at the dis|>osal of
the Lom nion governmenl. All the
blandi-bm_nts of the party in British
Columbia- have been unavailing and It
is known that Mr. Smith has great
personal admiration and friendship for
Premier McBride. Moreover, Hon. Mr.
Templeman Is jealous of Mr. Smith
;.itl the behests of the Victoria minister could not be as effectively arranged with Mr. Smith as with Mr. Mclnnis.
These are some of the reasons given for the selection of Mr. Mclnnis by
the Ottawa coterie to enter the contest in this province, and if possible
wrest the laurels from the brow of the
native-born premier.
Mr. Mclnnis' record has not been
without in^.dent, nor wi.hout speciac
ular and f.amboyant features. He has
been all things to ali men. Possessed
of a genial personality and an optimistic temperament, he is a favorite
with the boys, of whom he is one. A
large m.asu.e of his suicess, or what
passes for ihat in tbe administration
01 the Yukon, has resulted from his
ab.Uty to suavely assure petitioners
that he will see what can be done,
leaving the conviction that he Is a
hail fellow, well met, and if the petition is ineffective he has -done his
be_t.
A few years ago he was elected a
member of the Dominion parliament
and on Uie occasion of his oratorical
debut there he made such egotistical
and bumptious assertions in defining
the duties of the government that the
members of the house were startled
_ r_t, then amazed, and finally convinced that they had permitted the
iin.o.t tio.i in>o their august assembly
of some.hing second cousin to a political n.on-tr. s ty. Si embarrassing
was the situation at the close of his
address that the tension was only re
:ieved when Hon. George E. Foster
b;oke the sp-.ll by Informing the house
that Mr. Mclnnis was a specimen of the products of the West
ln general a.id British Columbia
in particular. He never gained another hear n-? fn the house of commons
and alter sitting through two sessions
he was elad to accept an invitation to
run in the province for a local seat.
which he did, suffering defeat at the
bauds of his opponent.
His next remarkable achievement
was  ihs organization  and  conduct  of
the campaign of Mr. William Sloan,
. ho tau against K_.pa Smith on Vancouver is.and for the house of pariju
m-.nl. it is reported thai he bargained for a specitic sum in lieu ol iiib
campaign -__*. vices, and was to be giv
tn an enormous honoiariuui it he
e-ected .us cand.date. The campaign
Mas one oi Lie most violent and bitter ever tarried on in British Coluui
bia aB far as Mcinnlu and Sloan were
concerned. Vituptraiion, Blander, calumny, auuse, niisrepi'eseniatioii and
laLeuOOii were the weapons of Mr.
Al* Im-is. Sot even the personal character of Mra. Smith was suifered to
escape from the inuendoes of the blatant demagogue, though on only one
occas.ou did he stoop so low as to
make insinuations against her. The
s.-u-iu or hisses and belligerent attacks
o; p.rsi-ns in the audience, who almost
threw him lr_m the building, brought
ihe meaiing to an untimely end.
The Mcinnls-Sloan campaign was a
fi-Z.c, and when the ballots were counted and tbe Smith triumphal procession
waB over, Sioan went home carrying
the Biub of a burnt broom, muttering
something to the effect that that was
all that be had lo show for his $8000
campaign tx*ensta. Relations between
these two princ.pals were strained for
some time.
Mr. Mclnnis next ran against the
candidate of the pr*. sent government
in Alberni at the last election and was
elected over his opponent by a close
ma.orlty. After holding the seat for
two sessions he resigned to take up
the onerous task of governing the Yukon, a position from which he is now
absent on 'depaitmcntal business,"
which turns out to be the making of
a baigain with the Ottawa autocrats
for the reclaiming of British Columbia from the control of a government
which, so far as Liberal and Grand
Trunk designs iB concerned, Is hope
leBsly recalcitrant.
Mr. Mclnnis 'advent in his new role
as party leader will be the signal for
specious speeches, plausible sophistries,
un.fflca) pl.dgfi and pyrotechnic oratory of the latest and most approved
Liberal style. He Is to he occompa-
nied rrom Ottawa, bo the despatches
say, by a whole hoide of Liberal spellbinders, who will divide up into parlies and cover the province as effective'y as spellbinding can do. It is not
improbable that all the artifices and
deep devices that are practised in Ontario will be Introduced here. The
Pritchett gang, so honorably graduated
in the schcol of ballot switching and
ofeatlng in the Huron and Middlesex
a* d , thr counties in Ontario, wil! be
repieented. It Ib invariably tbe case
when a large contingent of speakers
ia impoit-d from another province
the. a .ccompanled by a small army
of t;an.,l heelers, for whom they act
as decoys, and whose business it Ib to
go on the still hunt, and that the managers of this foreign and imported
rampa'gn will overlook or fail to use
the tactics which have debauched the
electorate ln almost all other parts of
Canada is too much to ask.
It is well to remember that behind
all th's are the coffers of the Grand
Trunk PacIIIc. The guarantee hy the
dominion government of the bonds for
(he construction of one-half of the
tianscont'nental line, with the full
payment by the oountry of the cost of
constructing the other half, has left
enough to provide sufficient campaign
funds for the debauching of a whole
c.ntin'ut, That these methods will
succeed In British Columbia is no
more to be bslleved than that the G.
T. P. can bluff the government into
doing Its behests or that Sir Wilfrid
and Mr. ridding could bluff Premier
McBride Into accepting an insulting
setlement of our claim to better
terms.
FIRST CIVILIAN PRINCE
Delicate   Health of Augustus  Wllhelm
Will Prevent    His   Acceptance of
Naval or Military Position.
New York, Dec. *J8.���A cable from
llerlln to Iho American Bays It Is reported tbat llie kaiser's fourth son,
Prince Augustus Wllhelm, whoso encasement to Princess Alexandra of
Schl. swlg-llo'steln was announced yesterday, will visit the United States after hlB hineymoon next year, and that
Ihe kaiser has air. ady planned au Itinerary for hlm. The kaiser's desire Is
lo have the prince make a systematic
tour for the purpose of studying Amerlcnn commercial and industrial methods. The prince Is to travel Incognito,
accepting no official hospitalities or
entertainments.
The prince Ib In delicate health and
unable to occupy In the future any im
portant naval or military positions. He
pleaded with the kaiser to permit hlm
to devote hie life to civic affairs, and
the kaiser is said to have acceded,
therefore, Augustus will be the first
Prussian prince to remain a civilian.
The prince'B military career will terminate after another six months' service In Ihe Guards' regiment.
Breaks Social Barriers.
Halifax, N. S., Dec. 28.���Lieutenant
Governor Kraser will make another
democratic Innovation here ou New
Year's. The governor holds a levee
on New Year's day as n custom for
years. In the past, however, there has
been a private entree as well as a general reception, the private affair taking place 15 minutes before the public
waB adml'ted. The private entree was
for the benefit of the civic and mill
tary officials and olher dignitaries and
soc'al leaders. This class distinction
caused bad feeling. Many prominent
citizens stayed away from the reeep
Uon altogether on account thereof and
an agitation for abolishing the private
entree bas been going on for years.
Fraser Is the first governor to sweep
out of existence the private entree,
and on New Year's day the reception
will be open to all classes, irrespective
of official and social  standing.
SERIOUS FIRE ON PRAIRIE.

The list doubtless will be much larger when communications with isolated
parts of the provincea now snowbound
Is restored.
London, Dec. 28.���The continuing
snowfall has created a situation tAu
worst known ln the city or ln Great
Britain, and the conditions existing
are general throughout Europe. From
all pans of iireat Britain come stories
of tiu.us butted in snowdrifts, tbe
worst case being that of a passenger
train bound from Dundee to Edinburgh,
which ran-into a snowdrift at 6 o'clock
last night three miles from SL Andrews and ls still imprisoned. A train
went to iu assistance and stuck in tho
drift,, and all tbe efforts during tho
night to reach them were futile. By
morning a small quantity of provisions
was conveyed to the hungry paasen-
gers and crews.
Tbe equipment of the British railways Is quite inadequate to deal with
the condition,  heretofore <tBp��t JB*/
known ln the country. ^mMs^^
Forty or fifty women had narrow escape* from death today, qwlnr* to th*

A delegation of three from the
Strathcona city council visited Edmonton yesterday and had a two-hoar conference with the commissioner, aa a
result of which an agreement between
Edmonton and Btrathoona for a 16-
year telephone franchise In the South
lown was reached and will be submitted to the councils of both towns.
The terms of the franchise aro not
given out for publication, but lt la understood tbe Edmonton people propose
to Btring a 300-line cable to Strathcona and erect the whole Strathcona
service on to the Edmonton automatic

THK  PRICE   OF  M'lXNIS.
. Vv
The   current   of   events   is   bringing
day by day its contributions of flotsam
to confirm the contention of the Conservative   press  and  the  admission  of
the  opposition  that     the     Liberals  in
Brltlah   Columbia  nre lacking in  men,
inefficiently   organized   and   possessed
of  no   issues  upon   which   appeal   can
be   made   io the  oountry,    The  statement made by this paper a few days
ago that J.  A.  Macdonald   was to  be
Sidetracked and discarded from the position  of leader was partially confirm
ed   by   Mr.   Ma-cdonald's   admission   to
lhe   local   organ   that   he  bad   invited
Mr. Mclnnis to second him in ihe campaign.   The Ottawa despatches Inform
us that   Mr.   Maedonuld   promised   Mclnnis   a   "safe   seat"   if he   would   but
come to the aid of the distressed party head.   The temptation to moralise
on the matter of a safe seat is almost
irresistable   and   the   phrase   suggests
the woe-begone mental condition of the
opposition foster parent.    Thai a safe
seat must be guaranteed as __ inducement to Mr. Mclnnis to enier the arena
of provincial politics is not paying tbe
sort of compliment to the governor of
the Yukon that the doughty champion
of  Liberalism   would   wish.     There  is
a redolence of doubt about his election
that must  have been  crushing to the
egotism   of  that    aspiring    politician.
The  generous  offer    on the    part  of
Macdonald   serves  only   to  show  how
Ifttle  acquainted  he  is. with  the man
whom he has invited to play the second   violin  fn his campaign orchestra.
The original invitation to Mclnnis to
cast his luck as a soldier of fortuno
with the opposition in British Columbia came from the Coast Liberals
without any reference to the wishes
ol Macdonald and the tardy yielding
lo the pressure put upon the latter
shows how feebly he holds in leash
the fast-Slipping command of his disintegrated forces. The Conservative
press has not been mistaken In Its
measuremen. Ol the Liberal situation
nor can the denials of the organs disguise the fact lhat a serious situation
faces   the   opposition  party.
Tlu- full measure of their humiliation
was not filleil when they were forced
to invite the assistance of an outsider
but no sooner had this been done than
the real character of the man upon
Whom they call for deliverance is disclosed. We are credibly Informed that
Mr, Mclnnis has made it a condition
of his rendering assistance to the distraught party that the present leader
be ignominiously deposed and that
this event will follow the demand we
have no hesitation in affirming. Whether Mclnnis himself makes the demand
on his own behalf is noi a feature in
ihe situation. The Coast Liberals
huve no confidence in Macdonald's
leadership, nor will they tolerate that
the general of their forces shall be a
resident of the interior. The sectional prejudice of the Coast politicians
are in themselves sufficient to make
Insistence on the resignation probable
in any event. Hut those who know
Mr. Mclnnis will readily understand
that he would smile audibly when asked to resign the Yukon plum for the
doubtful result of a provincial campaign. That he would consent to act
lhe role of lieutenant for a discredited leader is beyond suspicion.
A further feature of the situation is
that while the Coast Liberals are in
Cr. nzned activity preparing for the
campaign, Mr, Macdonald is not invited into their counsels. lie is apparently left to sing of the charms uf political solitude. Defeat at the polls could
be accepted by Mr. Macdonald philosophically, but this cold-blooded dismissal from the counsels of his party
chiefs shows only too plainly the extreme predicament in which tbe Liberals find themselves.
The advent of Mclnnis will be awail-
ed with eagerness by the party he Is
to lead. What will be fn his sack of
tricks?    What Bpecies of Liberal jug
gling will he adopt in order to mnke
a case for his party? They admittedly
have no issues themselves and conse-
quontly ail issues must bo Imported,
ihe special manufacture of thr Ottawa
administration, whose willing tool Mclnnis will be.
Thus, for the second time Within a
period of three mouths, is the province
brought face to face with the overreaching greed, political madness and
dogmatism of Ottawa. Once on the
question of better terms, on whicli occasion our rights were flaunted iu the
mosi shameless manner, and now
again on tlie question of our right tO
manage our own political affairs. The
octopus stretches ids tentaoles farther
west each year, und this time conclusions ure to be tried with British Columbia. It Is lor tht. electors lo say
whether they will hand over this vast
heritage, now so prosperous and promising, lo Uie gang who have plundered
und spoiled the fair domain of other
provinces tbat their friends might be
enriched, ur it is lor them to say that
Uilttsh Columbia's native and adopted
sons are capable of administering the
at lal is of the province. The answer
lo tlle question will not take long.
When Lib ral intolerance reaches the
pjint where tlie whole contingent ot
Ottawa campaigners musl come west
lo play thslr juggling arts upon the
electors of lhe country there will be
such a storm uf resentment aroused
that the perfidious fortune-hunting
puhtlcians will be taught their places.
Just as the Grand Trunk 1'ucific was
taught Its lesson here, so must tlie
Liberal boud-servauls of lhal avaricious corporation be taught where
they belong.
COMPULSORY CONCILIATION.
A crude outline of the bill of Hon.
Mr. Lemieux for the compulsory reference of labor disputes to conciliation
has been submitted to the house of
commons. Already the Liberal press
is complimenting the "commendable
promptitude" Of the minister and the
government of which he is a member
lor this imaginative alacrity. The
Ferula coal sti ike was settled, largely uy the kind olfices of tlie minister
Of finance in the provincial govern-
m--ul aud the Lethbrldge strike, which
had lasted much longer, by the mediation of W. L. Mackenzie King wus
terminated before the Ottawa authorities could be induced to recognize the
Utter inadequacy of the laws in existence for the mitigation of labor troubles. Jusl as soon, however, as the
immediate strife was settled and tht
danger of fuel famine was past, with
"commendable promptitude" the Do-
in.nlon government fathers legislation
to prevent a recurrence of similar
even Is.
Like lightning, these troubles do not
often strike in the same place, at
least not with appreciable frequency,
and the commendable promptitude' of
the Ottawa government is easily likened to the fabled ana-chrouism of
"locking the stable door afler the
horse has been stolen.'' Since Lethbrldge and the Crow's Nest Pass are
ihe only producing ileitis from which
the supply controls the Industrial progress and domestic comfort of the
Western country, tlie immediate necessity for such action seems to have been
anticipated by the settlements effected
through the mediation of third parties.
Fair-minded persons will, however,
be disposed to give the Laurler government credit for whatever sincerity
of purpose there may be in the introduction aud enactment of legislation
calculated to anticipate and forestall
similar disputes, and subsequent inconvenience and loss lo the country
thi ough misunderstandings between
the coal barons and their employees.
The only matters upon which there
will be a general disposition to criticize and condemn the Ottawa administration will be on the apparent inefficiency of its proposed legislation and
the limitations of its Bcope. The inefficiency of the proposed legislation
consists���bo far as its intention has
been disclosed���in the fact that it
does not enforce compulsory arbitration. It provides for the submission
of matters in dispute lo an Impartial
tr.bunal, with the constitution of which
no fault can be found. It also compels, under penalty, not yet fixed, that
operations must be continued and the
coaling Industry carried on pending
ifnal arbitrament upon the matters in
dispute. So far the proposed legislation is fairly good, but It is, in our
opinion, utterly nullified or rendered
Ineffective and therefore useless because it contains no provision for the
compulsion of either or both of the
disputing parlies to submit to the
findings of the arbitration board. It
is naively suggested that after the
fnding of a board of arbitrators is announced tlle pressure of public opinion will be sufficient to protect the interests of (he people. Such an inference can only be called a reductio ad
absurdum, for since when has the pow
er of public .pinion played any part
ln the Beltlenitml of#a dispute between
contending faqtions with capital, sel
fish aud arrogknt, on the one hand,
and labor, uni.lenting and wronged,
on -the other? We are aware that In
the published report of the negotiations for settlement of the Lethbrldge
strike by Mr. King he emphasizes the
fact that the pressure brought to bear
on ihe dlspuunts by his presentation
of the serious-* situation In the prairie
provinces had some effect In inducing
the contestants to mitigate their de*
mauds, but 11 must not be forgotten
that in this Instance both parties to
the strife wire already heartily sick
of the strugge ami would have prob
ably embraced the offer of settlement
and made the same concessions If there
had heen no such pertinent conditions,
The proposal to leave the mailer���
so far us legislation is concerned���to
the pressure it public opinion, appears
ol iis to be weak and cowardly, without qualification. The excuse that compulsory arbitration is too far in advance Of public opinion Is, in our view.
a begging of the whole ipiestion. A
parliamentary enactment which brings
matters Up to a certain polul and
shows conclusively which party to a
dispute is in the wrong should go far
enough to visit upon the culprit, in the
public interest, a penalty sufficiently
effective to compel recognition of the
right. Any measure which stops short
of this Is simply so much waste paper,
wasted time and wasted sophistry.
The people will noi be deceived because no good will come of it, aud the
obvious attempt lo make it appear
ihat the government has some Interest
in the welfare of the people will all
too soon become transparent because
the extent of such Interest falls far
short of the demands of the situation.
The further refusal lo make the act
apply to olher disputes does not for
the present concern us. Whether
street ear companies shall be brought
under a law compelling public Investigation makes little difference so long
as the Investigations are to result In
nothing more than a reference to the
pleasure of public opinion.
We think the Laurier government.
through Mr. Lemieux, is adding another chapter to its already long autobiography In its attempts to throw
dust in lhe eyes of the people. If the
coal barons were nol such good friends
of the Otawa administration we might
hope for much more drastic aud satisfactory measures, but inasmuch as political blood is thicker than water we
need hope for no real reform until a
more piogressive government assumes
the reins of power at    the   Dominion
capital,

EDITORIAL COMMENT.
Speaking of divisions in the Conservative ranks, we were not aware of
any such existing. The Dally Canadian,
however, does confess to some amusement at the fact tbat the ��oast Liberals are turning over the whole prestige and Influence of the body to be
lew by W. W. ii. Mclnnis, while J. A.
Macdonald peevishly publishes his
campaign platform and plans in the local organ. We do not suggest that
there has been a split in the Liberal
ranks. We simply suggest that Mr.
Macdonald does not seem to realize
what has taken place, which recalls
the remark of a prominent local Liberal, who says Mr. Macdonald is slow to
see a point.
The Liberals now have to choose
whether they will stand by Macdonald
and go down to certain defeat or
Whether they will disgracefully depose
him, exalt Mclnnis and flatter themselves with a chance of making a
close fight. And there are enough of
Judas Priests among them to say as
of old: "It is belter that one man 'Macdonald) should die than that the whole
(Liberal)  nation should perish."
Macdonald offers Mclnnis a safe
point. Dear! Dear! They are so
plenty. But just while they are going
at these bargain prices the local Lib.
candidate would like to speak before
they are all taken.
What a different world this would
be If we were all as smart as we think
we are.
After making a strenuous effort to
get out of the rut a man finds himself
tn a hole.

WHY   HE   SUICIDED.
Captain of    Hamburg    Steamer Acted
Without Pilot.
New York, Dec. 28.���The inability of
Captain Braunwig of Uie Hamburg immigrant Bteaixi yacia Prinsessea Victoria to obtain the services of a pilot
was largely responsible for ths wreck
of tbe steamer, and the subsequent
suicide of the captain near tin* harbor of Kingston, Jamaica,, about 10
days ago, according to stories brought
here today by passengers and members of the crew of the wrecked steamer, who came on the Bteamer Sarnia
from Kingston. The crew will be sent
to Hamburg.
TJhe passengers here are Frederick
JFcll and Herman Horle, antl Herman
Heden. The other passengers are expected next week. The accounts glveD
of the wreck go (o show that CapUUu
Hrauuwlg steamed up to the entrance
of the harbor at night and burned torpedoes and made other signals for a
pilot, but failed to get one. He decided to proceed up tlie harbor, but he
mistook .the lights and the steamer
wetit ashore. On learning the extent
of the disaster the captain committed
suicide. His body was buried at
Kingston.
A man isn't necessarily a manufacturer because he's always on ths make.
Some children fear the dark as much
as some men fear the light.

COMPARED WITH  NOVA SCOTIA,
B. C.  Fruit    Grown    Under   Ordinary
Conditions   Rivals   Special  Growth.
Of special Interest to British Columbia fruit growers Is the following letter received a few days ago by Hon.
H. Q. Tatlow, minister of finance and
agriculture, from Mr. J. H. Turner,
agent of British Columbia ln London.
The lutUT is dated December 6.
*-The Colonial fruit show opened
yesterday. British Columbia has a
ina*-nif.ci--nt show, and hus taken nine
or ten nieUuls, but I have not yet got
full particulars. As a general show it
was not successful. Canada was not
represent *d except by Hritish Columbia and Nova Scotia. It is a great dis-
appuintmi nt to the Royal Horticultural
society, as the show waB put to this
late date expressly to suit Eastern
Canada, on representations made to
the secretary, Rev. M. Wlllitj. Nova
Scotia had some very fine fruit, and
there was a very fine lot of Englisb-
gruwn apples shown by Hunyard, the
great tree-grower. They were, I think,
equal to Hritish Columbia fruit, but no
doubt were grown under special conditions, and extra care that cau he
given by nurserymen, while Hritish
Columbia fruit, I judge, represents
praciically the ordinary conditions of
growth in the province. At any rate,
our fruit has caused increased interest
and decided many more to try the
province. 1 have had three parties of
three and four persons each in this
morning, who have now settled to go
out before April next, and came to inquire ubout shipping their household
effects.
"Lord Strathcona came into the show
about 6 p. in., and I took him around.
He was really astonished and delighted with the exhibit, and seemed much
Interested in it, and it is now certain
that some 10 or 12 families will, now
they iealize what the country can do,
and what sort of climate it must have
to produce such beautiful crops, be
leaving Lbe next few months, and all
with capital. Many more may be influenced the same way. The show
next week at Islington, coming after
the result of this one, will have still
greater effect, I anticipate.
"Last night we had at tbe refreshment room of the Royal Horticultural
society quite a gathering of Hritish
Columbians: Mr. M. Croasdile, Mr.
Mclnnts (formerly of Esquimalt),Mib.
Hoscowitz, Mi', and Mrs. C. S. Jones
uud daughters, and many others, with
English tri mis. Lady Evelyn Cecil
Nill, daughter of tlie late Lord Salisbury, Lady Ancaster and others, with
friends, also carefully inspected the
fruit, saying they had many friend*
who thought of going out.

Notes from the Labor World.
Accuidiug to many labor leaders and
economists workers today are better
paid by from IU to 4U per cent and in
some cases almost as high as 70 per
cent than twenly-fivu  years  ago.
Carpenters in New York City in 188(1
were paid $3.50 a day and worked fifty-
hours a week. They now receive $4.80
a day and work forty-four hours a
week.
Tbe long standing trouble between
the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad and its engineers, over
Ihe question of wages is at an end, the
engineers having agreed to accept a
scale of wages submitted by the company.
Members of the Independent Labor
party in the Transvaai are pledged to
oppose every candidate at the coming
election who does not promise-to endeavor to secure for the people a fail-
share of the total profits of the mines.
A labor party has been formed in
Toklo, Japan, and a strong manifesto
has been issued declaring that the existing labor conditions are deplorable.
The recent action of the postoffice
department, in fining two railway mall
clerks in Spokane for public criticism
of a railway is resulting in an organized effort among the clerks to secure
the right of freedom of speech.
Officials of the trades unions of San
Francisco, the labor papers of California and public officials are all
authority for the statement that there
are more than enough workers of all
classes in San Franciscoto supply the
demand.
The Hindoo coolies problem bas now

THK PRICE  OF  M'INNIS.
The  current   of   events   Is   bringing
day by day its contributions of flotsam
to confirm the contention of the Conservative  press  antl   the  admission  of
the opposition that    tlie    Liberals In
British  Columbia are  lacking  iu   men,
inefficiently  organized   and   possessed
of  no   issues   upon   which   appeal   can
be  made  to the  country.    The  statement made by this paper a few days
ago that J. A. Macdonald  was to be
sidetiackcd and discarded from the position of leader was partially confirm
ed   hy   Mr.   Macdonald's  admission   to
the   local   organ   that  he had  invited
Mr. Mclnnis to second him in ihe campaign.    Tin* Ottawa despatches inform
us that   Mr.   Macdonald   promised   Mclnnis  a  "safe  seat"  If be   would   but
come to the aid of the distressed  party head.   The temptation io moralise
on the matter of n safe seat is almost
lrreslstable and  the   phrase  suggests
the woe-begone nientnl condition of tho
Opposition foster parent.    That  a safe
seat must be guaranteed as an inducement to Mr. Mclnnis to enter the arena
of provincial politics is not paying the
sort of compliment to the governor of
the Yukon that the doughty chnmpion
of   Liberalism   would   wish.    There   is
a redolence of doubt about his election
tbat must have "been  crushing to the
egotism   of  that    aspiring    politician.
The  generous  offer    on the    part   of
Macdonald  serves  only   to  show   how
little acquainted he is  wfth  the man
whom he has invited to play the second  violin In  his campaign orchestra.
The original Invitation  to Mclnnis to
cast his luck as a soldier of fortuno
with the opposition in British Columbia came from the Coast Liberals
Without any reference to the wishes
ot Macdonald and the tardy yielding
to the pressure put upon the latter
shows how feebly be holds In leash
the fast-slipping command of his disintegrated foices. The Conservative
press has uot been mistaken in Its
measurement of the Liberal situation
nor can the denials of the organs disguise the fact that a serious situation
faces   the  opposition party.
The full measure of their humiliation
was not filled when they were forced
lo Invite the assistance of an outsider
but no sooner had this been done than
the real character of the man upon
whom they call for deliverance Is disclosed. We are credibly Informed that
Mr. Mclnnis has made It a condition
of his rendering assistance to the distraught party that the present leader
be ignominiously deposed and that
this event will follow the demand we
have uo hesitation in affirming. Whether Mclnnis himself makes the demand
on his own behalf is not a feature Jn
the situation. The Coast Liberals
have no confidence in Macdonald's
leadership, nor will they tolerate thai
the general of their forces shall be a
resident or the Interior. The sectional prejudice of the Coast politicians
are in themselves sufficient to make
Insistence on the resignation probable
in any event. Hut those who know
Mr. Mclnnis will readily understand
ihat he would smile audibly when asked to resign the Yukon plum for the
douIn fu] result of a provincial campaign. That he would consent to act
the role of lieutenant for a discredited leader Is beyond suspicion.
A further feature of the situation Is
that while Ihe Coast Liberals nre lu
trcnuned activity preparing for the
campaign, Mr. Macdonald Is not invited into their counsels. Ho Is apparently left to sing of the charms of political solitude. Defeat at the polls could
be accepted by Mr. Macdonald philosophically, but this cold-blooded dismissal from the counsels of his party
chiefs shows only too plainly the extreme predicament In which the Liberals find themselves.
The advent of Mclnnis will be awaited with eagerness by the party he Is
to lead. What will be in his sack of
tricks?   What species of Liberal jug
gling will he adopt In order to mnke
a case for his party? They admittedly
have no issues themselves and consequently all issues must be imported,
the special manufacture of lhe Ottawa
administration, whose willing tool Mclnnis will be.
Thus, for the second time within a
period of three months, is the province
brought face to face with the overreaching greed, political madness and
dogmatism of Ottawa. Once on the
questiou of better terms, on which occasion our rights were Haunted iu the
most shameless manner, and now
again on the questiou of our right to
manage our own political affairs. The
octopus stretches his tentacles farther
west each year, and this lime conclusions are to be tried with Hritish t\i-
I Umbla, It is for the electors to say
whether they will hand over this vast
heritage, now so prosperous and promising, lo the gang who have plundered
aud spoiled tbe fair domain of other
provinces tbat their friends might be
enriched, or it is for them to say that
Uiiiisli Columbia's native and adopted
sons are capable of administering the
affairs of the province. The answer
to the question will not take long.
When Liberal intolerance readies the
point where the whole contingent ot
Ottawa campaigners must come west
to play their juggling arts upon the
electors of the country there will be
such a Btorm of resentment aroused
that the perfidious fortune-hunting
politicians will be taught their places.
Just as the Grand Trunk Pacific was
taught its lesson here, so must the
Liberal Loud-servants of that avaricious corporation be taught where
they belong.
COMPULSORY CONCILIATION.
A crude outline of the bill of Hon.
Mr, Leinieux for the compulsory reference of labor disputes to conciliation
has been submitted to the house ot ;
commons. Already the Liberal press
is complimenting the "commendable
promptitude" of the minister and the
government of which he is a member
lor this imaginative alacrity. The
Fernie coal sti ike was settled, largely by the kind offices of the minister
of finance In the provincial government aud the Lethbrldge strike, which
had lasted much longer, by the mediation of \V. L. Mackenzie King was
terminated before the Ottawa authorities could be induced to recognize the
utter Inadequacy of the laws in existence for the mitigation of labor troubles. Just as soon, however, as the
immediate strife was settled aud tht
danger of fuel famine was past, with
"Yoinni. ndable promptitude" the Dominion government fathers legislation
to prevent a recurrence of similar
events.
Like lightning, these troubles do not
often strike In the same place, at
least not with appreciable frequency,
and the commendable promptitude' of
the Ottawa government is easily likened to the fabled anachronism of
"locking the stable door after the
horse has been stolen." Since Lethbrldge and the Crow's Nest Pass are
the only producing fields from whfch
the supply controls the industrial progress and domestic comfort of the
Western country, the immediate necessity for such action seems to have heen
anticlpaied by the settlements effected
through the mediation of third parties.
Fair-minded persons w.ill, however,
be disposed to give the Laurier government credit for whatever sincerity
or purpose there may be in the Introduction and enactment of legislation
calculated to anticipate and forestall
similar disputes, and subsequent inconvenience and loss to the country
thi ough misunderstandings between
the coal barons and their employees.
The only matters upon which there
will he a general disposition to criticize and condemn the Ottawa administration will be on the apparent inefficiency of its proposed legislation and
the limitations of Its scope. The inefficiency of the proposed legislation
consists���so far as Its Intention has
been disclosed���In the fact that It
docs not enforce compulsory arbitration. It provides for the submission
of matters In dispute to an impartial
tr.bunal, with the constitution of which
no fault can be found. It also compels, under penalty, not yet fixed, that
operations must be continued and the
coaling Industry carried on pending
linal arbitrament upon the matters in
dispute. So far the proposed legislation is fairly good, but It Is, In our
opinion, utterly nullified or rendered
ineffective and therefore useless because It contains no provision for the
compulsion of either or both of the
disputing parties to submit to tho
findings of the arbitration board. It
is naively suggested that after the
Hiding of a board of arbitrators is announced the pressure of public opinion will be sufficient to protect the Interests of the people. Such an Inference can only be called a reductlo ad
absurdum, for since when has the pow
er of public .pinion play__ any part
In the settlenitui of���a dispute between
contending factions with capital, selfish and arrogint, on the one hand,
and labor, unrelenting and wronged,
on the olher? We are aware that In
the published report of tba negotiations for settlement of the Lethbrldge
strike by Mr, King be emphasizes the
fact that the .ressure brought to bear
on the disputants by his presentation
of the serious situation In the prairie
provinces had some effect iu inducing
the contestants to mitigate tbelr demands, but ii must not be forgotten
that iu this instance both parties to
the strife wtre already heartily sick
of the strunge aud would have probably embraced the offer of settlement
and made the same concessions it there
had been no such pertinent conditions.
The propositi to leave the mailer���
so far as legislation Is concerned���to
the pressure >f public opinion, appears
ot us to be weak and cowardly, Withoul qualification, The excuse that compulsory arbitration is too far In advance of public opinion i��. tn our view,
u begging of the whole question. A
parliamentary enactment which brings
matters up lo a certain point and
shows conclusively which party to n
dispute is in the wrong should go far
enough to visit upon the culprit, in the
nubile Int*res.*, a p-awi .!..!> /.iv
btlcci .., ; compe; "e_ott*Mton u

of this is simply so much waste paper,
wasted time and wasted sophisiry.
The people will not be deceived because no good will come of it, and the
obvious attempt to make it appear
that tlie government has some Interest
ln the welfare of the people will all
too soon become transparent because
the extent of such Interest falls far
short of the demands of the situation.
The further refusal to make the act
apply to other disputes does not for
the present concern us. Whether
street car companies shall be brought
under a law compelling public investigation makes little difference so long
as the investigations are to result in
nothing more than a reference to the
pressure of public opinion.
We think the Lain ier government.
through Mr. Lemieux, is adding another chapter to its already long autobiography in Its attempts to throw
dust in the eyes of the people. If the
coal barons were not such good friends
of the Otawa administration we might
hope for much more drastic and satisfactory measures, but inasmuch as political blood is thicker than water we
need hope for no real reform until a
more progressive governmenl assumes
the reins of power at the Dominion
capital.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.
Speaking of divisions in the Conservative ranks, we were not aware of
any such existing. The Daily Canadian,
however, does confess to some amusement at the fact that the ��oast Liberals are turning over the whole prestige and influence of the body to be
lew by W. W. U. Mclnnis, while J. A.
Macdonald peevishly publishes his
campaign platform and plans in the local organ. We do not suggest that
there has been a split in the Liberal
ranks. We simply suggest that Mr.
Macdonald does not seem to realize
what has taken place, which recalls
the remark of a prominent local Liberal, who says Mr. Macdonald is slow to
see a point.
The Liberals now have to choose
whether thoy will stand by Macdonald
and go down to certain defeat or
whether they will disgracefully depose
him, exalt Mclnnis and flatter themselves with a chance of making a
close fight. And there arc enough of
Judas Priests among them to say as

WHY  HE  SUICIDED.
Captain of    Hamburg    Steamer Acted
Without Pilot.
New York, Dec. _J8.���The inability of
Captain JJraunwig of the Hamburg itn-
migrant sU-ani yacht Prinzessen Victoria to obtain the services of a pilot
was largely responsible for the wreck
of the steamer, and the subsequent
suicide of the captain near the harbor of Kingston, Jamaica,, about 10
days ago, according to stories brought
here today by passengers and members of the crew of the wrecked steamer, who came on the Bteamer Sarnia
from Kingston. The crew will be gent
to Hamburg.
The passengers here are Frederick
-Fell and Herman Horle, and Herman
Uedeo. The other passengers are expected next week. The accounts given
of the wreck go to show lhat Captain
liraunwig steamed up lo the entrance
of the harbor at night ond burned torpedoes and made other slguals for a
pilot, but failed to get one. He decided to proceed up the harbor, but he
mistook .the lights and the steamer
went ashore. On learning the extent
of th. disaster the captain committed
suicide. His body waa burled at
Kingston.
A man Isn't necessarily a manufac-
lurer because he's always on lhe make.
Some children fear the dark ns much
as some men fear the light.

COMPARED WITH NOVA SCOTIA.
B. C. Frull    Grown    Under   Ordinary
Conditions  Rivals  Special  Growth.
Of special Interest to British Columbia fruit growers is the following letter received a few days ago by Hon.
R. 0. Tallow, minister of finance and
agriculture, from Mr. J. H. Turner,
agent of British Columbia in London.
Thy letter ls dated December 6.
"The Colonial fruit show opened
yesterday. British Columbia has a
nus; n.r.c in show, and has taken nine
or ten medals, but I have not yet got
full particulars. As a general show it
was not sin c ssl ul. Canada was not
represented except by British Columbia and Nova Scotia. It is a great dis-
������iplniiitni in to the Royal Horticultural
society, as the show was put lo this
late date expressly to suit Eastern
Canada, on representations made to
the secretary, Rev. M. Willis. Nova
Scsstla had some very fine fruit, and
there was a very fine lot of Knglish-
Krown apples shown by Bunyard, the
grtat tree-grower. They were, I think,
equal to British Columbia fruit, but no
doubt were grown under special conditions, and extra care that can be
given by nurserymen, while British
Columbia fruit, I judge, represents
practically the ordinary conditions of
growth in the province. At any rate,
our fruit has caused increased interest
and decided many more to try the
province. I have had three parties of
three and four persons each in this
morning, who have now settled to go
out before April next, and came to inquire about shipping their household
effects.
"Lord Strathcona came into the show
about 6 p. in., and I took him around.
He was really astonished and delighted with the exhibit, and seemed much
interested in lt, and it is now certain
that some 10 or 12 families will, now
they tealize what the country can do,
and what sort of climate it must have
to produce such beautiful crops, be
leaving the next few months, and all
w.th capital. Many more may be influenced the same way. The show
next week at Islington, coming after
the result of this one, will have still
greater effect, I anticipate.
"Lusl night we had at the refreshment room of the Royal Horticultural
society quite a gathering of British
Columbians: Mr. M. Croasdile, Mr.
Mclnnes tform.-rly of Esquimau),Mis.
Boscowltz, Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Jones
and daughters, and many others, with
EngiiBh trl-.n.ls, Lady Evelyn Cecil
Mil, daughter of the late Lord Salisbury, Lady Ancaster and others, with
friends, also carefully inspected tho
fruit, saying they had many friendy
who thought of going out.
"Yours faithfully,
"J. H. TURNER."

Notes from the Labor World.
Acco.-dlng to many labor leaders and
economists workers today are better
paid by from IU to 40 per cent and in
some cases almost as high as 70 per
cent than twenty-five years ago.
Carpenters in New York City in 188(1
were paid $;1.50 a day and worked fifty-
hours a week. They now receive $4.80
a day and work forty-four hours a
week.
The long standing trouble between
the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad and its engineers, over
the question of wages is at an end, the
engineers having agreed to accept a
scale of wages submitted by the company.
Members of the Independent Labor
party ln the Transvaal are pledged to
opiiose every candidate at the coming
elecllon who does not promise-to endeavor to secure for the people a fair
share of the total profits of the mines.
A labor party has heen formed In
Toklo. Japan, and a strong manifesto
has been issued declaring that Ihe existing labor conditions are deplorable.
The recent action of tho postoffice
department in fining two railway mall
clerks in Spokane for public criticism
or a railway Is resulting In an organized effort among the clerks to secure
the right of freedom of speech.
Officials of the trades unions of San
Francisco, the labor papers of California and public officials are all
authority for the statement that there
are more than enough workers of all
classes ln San Franciscoto supply the
demand.
The Hindoo coolleB problem has now
Cannda. The government has Bent an
agent from the immigration department to Vancouver and Victoria to investigate. Hundreds aro arriving, and
It Ib said thnt 60,000 are now camped
at Hong Kong, awaiting transportation
lo llrltlsh Columbia.
.lananese papers are urging their
countrymen to give up going to Snn
Francisco and the Pacific coast and
turn to South America. Brazil gives
greater facilities to Jnpaneso than to
other races, while Chill holds out
special Inducements.
A statute prohibiting the employment of a child under sixteen years of
age longer than ten hours In any one
day has been declared by the Oregon
supreme court to be an entirely valid
and proper exercise of the police powers of the Blate.

seeing beautiful pictures grow under
his swift fingers with remarkable rapidity, rivets the attention of the audience." This identical company will
