"Most emphatically that Premier Mc-

.nt   reasons."    In  the first place hlfl

s* finances were in a deplorable con-

a large extent, discouraged, It was

I, It would have had to take drastic
li-ps in the efforts to place them upon
more  satisfactory   basis     The   Mc-

'hi' latter statement was justified when
t was remembered that It was possl-
'  to rs-port a surplus in the provlncll

Premier McBride had included In his
latform one plank which, tn his mind,
sis   of   supreme importance, namely,
belter tcrmB."    He remembered that
���I the laat days of the government of
hieb he had been a member, he had
tated, in addreBBing the house that he
as in favor of better terms for British
olumbla;   that he believed  the  prov-
nee was entitled lo this, and that it
necessary   that  eom? concession
hould   be  socured   in   order  tliat  the
untry   could be  properly  developed.
'Inch successive government had prom-
sed lhal the matter should be taken
ip  and   aottled.   and each  successive
government   had   failed.    The  reason
for that, he believed, was that not until
now had the importance of that question   really   been   appreciated  by   the
people.   (Applause)   Now  that  general
sentiment had been aroused he thought
that   attention  or   Ottawa   authorities
Mould    be    forsed    and   that   "better
terms" for Ilrlilah Columbia would be
accepted  more   seriously by   thoi e  ln
linrllment al the Dominion capital than
In  the past."   (Applause)
"The country." Mr. Rithet continued,
"could not be developed without the assistance of railways. While a member or the hoiiBe, he had advocated a
railway, the BrltlBh Pacific, but then
the government had not supported it
mid the public was half-hearted. Owing
to this he had felt and believed that
It would be a waste of time to go back
In Ihe legislature. Now, however, both
the measures for which he had fought
were being undertaken. The McBride
government included them ln its platform. It stood for "better terms" aud
the railway was built. "Without as-
| slstance from the province" he wished
lo say that the latter point, ln his mind,
wns exceedingly creditable to thoBe in
control of the reins of government."

Two to Die on Gallows.
SI. Louis, Mo., Jan. ll.���Unless Governor Folk exercises clemency at the
eleventh hour two murderers will die
on the gallows In lliis state tomorrow.
William Spaugh ls to die in Iron county

William Spaugh and his brother, Arthur Spaugh, together with their mother, were Jointly Indicted for (he murder
of Sherirf Polk ln Iron county. While
Ihe Spaughs were Imprisoned In Jail al
I ronton an effort was made to lynch

be hanged.
W. E. Church, who Ib to be hanged

Hub Furnishing House   Entered    Laat
Night by Man Drunk and Insensible���Confession.
The possibility   of   committing the
crime of house-breaking    when   drunk
and irresponsible adds a new terror to
over-indulgence.      It was    realized  ln
Nelson last night.
This morning when A. D. Emory
opened up the Hub furnishing house,
he found the back door broken in and
signs of the store having been entered.
He sent word to tbe police office at
ouce and Chief Jarvls began Investigations.
Nothing appeared to be missing but
a dreSBlng gown was somewhat disordered and had evidently been used.
Other signs pointed to the temporary
occupancy of the store by some one
much the worse for liquor.
The gown was covered with splinters,
evidently from the broken door. The
chief came to the conclusion that similar splinters would be found on the
coat of his quarry, as he had evidently
fallen frequently among the wreckage
he had made.
Accordingly, he set out to look fo a
drunk with splinters on his coat. While
inquiring at the Tremont he heard that
a man had complained of having the
pocket of his trousers, containing his
money, cut out while he was drunk.
The chief waited and the complainant
soon arrived. Hla coat was still covered with splinters of wood.
The chief listened to his complaint of
being "rolled," and suddenly asked:
"Where did you sleep?" The reply was
the story already constructed by the
chief from the evidence at the rear of
lie Hub. The offender knew nothing
of his night's atlventurs's up to 4 a. in.,
when he awoke and found himself ln
the store. He could not find his hat
and wae loo frightened to search for it.
His story is ao obviously true that
Measrs Emory & Walley will probably
not prosecute. Of courBe he has no
Idea who robbed him, or when or where
Europe owing to his frequent visits.
To Evangelize the World.
Philadelphia, Jan. !'.���Plans to even-
gellez the world within 25 years are
being discussed at the thirteenth annual conference of the Foreign Mission
boards, which opened today at the Y.
M. C. A. in this city. The movement
has been endorsed by laymen representing every Protestant denomination.
Several wealthy business men are Interested, and It Is understood money will
not be spared lo carry on the work.
Among those taking an active Interest
in the movement are Samuel 15. Capen

California Unites In Resistance to President Roosevelt.
Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 8���Governor
Pardee, In his annual messnge which
was presented to the legislature today,
devoted much space to the Japanese
school question. "It Is safe to say that
the president when he presented tho
portion of his annual message upon tho
opening of congress ln which he refors
to treatment of JapaneBe lln the San
Francisco schools was not aware of the
conditions of the country, and especially In California," said the governor.
"In common with the people of the east
who have had no experience with the
unassimllable people of Japan and
China, the president does not understand the radical differences between
Ihe Japanese and Chinese and people of
CaucaBlan blood, having come Into
cintact with only a few cducaK-d and
Intelligent Individuals or these two
races The people of the eastern states
do not understand that to permit the
Immigration of only a small fraction of
the whole number of these people
means the monopolization by them of
the Pacific states. This would not militate against the public good were the
n onopollzers capable of being absorbed
into thc body politic in Ihis generation
or even the next, and becoming Integral
parts of our cosmopolitan people.
"Under the circumstances lt ls not at
all strantse that there ls an aversion to
the mingling of the children of the
two usees, and, therefore, California has
decreed that wherever It is so desired
the local school authorities may pro-
Tidj ae arate schso's for these Japanese children In which they shall he
tausiht as Caucasian children and there
have equally capable teachers.
"In the case of Japanese, the separation seems to be the more necessary because of so many foreign people who
desire to attend our schools are so
much older than the Caucassian children with whom, on account of their
Inadequate learn'ng, the Japanese must
be classed. It is not at all desirable
that youths, even Caucaeion youths,
of eighteen years or more of ags-,
Bhould be assoclat'-d In school with
children of tender ages. The reason,
therefore. Is sufficiently explained by
Its mere statement. The laws of California require separation of the Japanese children from the Caucislan. The
treaty as I read it does not require that
the Japanese shall be put in classes as
our children. To give them as good
school facilities more than complies
with the treaty. Therefore it would
appear that Sao Francisco, in providing separate schools for the Japanese,
ls adhering strictly to the letter and
spirit of the laws of this state and ts
In no way acting contrary to lhe treaty
with Japan.
"The State of California as a sovereign state of tie United States of
America, has no quarrel with the governments of Japan or China, but, nevertheless, until the courts of this country
shall have declared that California has
no right to do bo this state reserves
to itself the richt and privilege to conduct under the law of the state, national
or treaty, Ub schools ln such manner as
seems best to UBe in this matter without the slightest disrespect to Ihe government of the United States or the
subjects of sny foreign station."

City of Mexico, Jan. II.���A telegram
from Orizaba received last night says
lhat. the value of property destroyed by
the strikers totals $1,500,000. The strikers who have escaped the soldiers have
fled to the nearby mountains and aro
being sought by gens d'armes and

28,000 textile strikers have returned to
work. The factory owners announce

Teheran, Jan. ��.���Official announcement of the death of the shah at 11
o'clock last night was made this morning.
London, Jan. 9.���The death of the
Shah of Persia removes a picturesque
ruler, who was well known to Western
Europe owing to his frequent visits to
France. During the visit of 1905 the
shah and his suite made a dazzling appearance on the boulevards and In tho
music halls of Paris. They were treated as national guests and poular enthusiasm was markfed owing to the shah's
good nature and lavish charity. At
that time his majesty looked old and
feeble. cH invariably wore a radical
costume with richly embroidered coat
and red fez. T8e sbah'B death copies
at a time when European governments
are organized ln a struggle to strengthen tholr positions In Persia. This Strug-
tie Is due to the geographical position
of Persia as a buffer between India
and Russia's southern possessions,
stretching toward the Persian frontier.
Still another International question
has recently been introduced by Ger
niany's commercial and railway activity
along the Persian frontier. The late
shah was strongly Prussian in sympathy, and as a result Russian influence
had been predominant at Teheran. An
Angln-Riiseian understanding has recently been negotiated and the announcement of Its terms Ib considered
Imminent. By this agreement Great
Britain and Russia will cease their rivalry over Persia and unite in a joint
pilocy. At the same time Germany has
been extending her influence in Persia.
Because of American Wife.
London, Jan. 9.���Louis Harcourt, Liberal member of parliament from Lancashire and son of the late Sir William
Harcourt, is understood to have been
appointed to the Irish secretaryship to
succeed James Bryce. Mr. Harcourt
today said that he "never denied such
announcements." This is In conformity
with precedents, as official statements
ln such cases come from the premier.
The appointment would surprise the
parliamentary and political world, as
Mr. Harcourt has not been considered
a candidate for the post. Mr. Har-
court's situation, however, is regarded
as peculiarly appropriate, not only because of his father's lifelong advocacy
of Home Rule for Ireland, and staunch
support of Mr. Gladstone when the Liberals split on this queBtlon, hut also
because his wife ls an American, formerly Miss Burns, daughter of the late
W. H. Burns of New York, and her
sympathies would therefore be more In
accordance with the Irish Nationalist
aspirations than They w>uld be ln the
case of an English woman.
A leading Persian official here in an
an interview said he did, not believe
that international troublt would follow
the shah's death, as the people are devoted to the present dynasty. Foreign
controversies are not underrated. The
British foreign office ls in touch with
the situation. Exchanges of views between Russia and Great Britain have
brought about complete accord by
which they will act together in a crisis
i to maintain the status quo. Consequent-
{.ly. no fear ls entertained that any other power will try to disarrange the existing political conditions. The personality of the new Bhah Is not well
known here, but his public declarations
are favorable lo a liberal policy and the
constitution whicli he haB since planned Is said to be satisfactory, though
it does nol indicate his capacity or policy. It is also pointed out that thc
chances of International disorder are
meulmlzed by the fact that the successor of the late shah Is already Installed.
Preliminary funeral ceremonies will
probably be held at the royal palace,
where Muzaffar died. The body will
lie ln state for eight or ten dayB ln the
splendid hall, where the miracle plays
are annually performed. Crowds of
priests will surround the catafalque, Incessantly chanting prayers from the
Koran, nnd the public will be allowed
to file past the coffin. The body of the
shah will b? burled In Abdul Azln
mosque. The funeral procession will
closely follow the lines of similar ceremonies in western countries, with tbe
usual display. A proclamation announcing the accession ao the throne of Mohammed All Mletza Is expected ln the
course of the day, after which the high
clergy, ministers and public functionaries will immediately repair to the
palace and recognize the new ruler. The
coronation of the new shah will probably take place shortly after the funeral.

Budget of Mining News   From   Qrand
Forks and Greenwood.
Grand Forks, Jan. 9.���In conversing
last evening with a prominent mining
man of the Boundary your correspondent learned that the matter of consolidating the British Columbia Copper
company and the Dominion Copper company has been considered by the directorates of these two companies and the
idea of forming an amalgamated company has by no means been abandoned.
If this amalgamation la consummated
in the near future lt will mean that
the new company will be of gigantic
proportions, as the combined capital of
the two companies now is $7,000,000.
The British Columbia Copper company
now haB a capitalization of $2,000,000,
while the Dominion Copper company
has a capital of $5,000,000. It is also
intimated that should these two big
companies combine their Interests the
new company would confine its attention to mining and smelting, and would
devote much more attention ln the future to the developing of promising
properties; ln fact, one branch of the
new company would be devoted exclusively to the developing of likely
The many stockholders of the Athelston property throughout the Boundary
district will be gra��ifled to learn that
the Dominion Copper company, which
recently acquired the Athelston property is now developing that claim ln a
systematic way. The work of unwnter-
Ing the shafts Ib about completed and
when lh s is done crosscuttlng at the
200-feet level will be started. It ls also
the intention of the vendor company
to build extensive tramways from the
Great Northern track to this property.
It has also been ascertained tbat some
years ago over 16,000 tons of ore from
the workings of the Athelston were
treated by the Montreal & Boston smelter and showed an average gold value
of $16 per ton. It is now expected that
in the work of crosscuttlng at the 200-
foot level the ore will increase in gold
values from what has been already
ed by S. M. Brydges and adopted.

J. J. Walker reported for the entertainment committee that preparations
for the club ball ln the opera house
the evening of Monday, January 14,
were completed, music and refreshments arranged for, and, the thought,
success assured.
The next order was election of officers, but as only 19 members were ln

It was then moved that the annual

A. W. Dyer renewed the suggestion
that a smoker be held in connection

Affairs of 20,000 Club in Excellent Condition, but Annual Meeting Poorly
If the Nelson 20,000 club Is to continue as 1 factor in the upbuilding of
the city and district, lt is imperative
that greater and more general Interest
be ta:;en In lt than Is manifest at present.
The annual meeting, of which more
than a mouth'B notice had been given,
was held in the board of trade rooms
last night. Out of a registered club
membership of 355 there was an attendance of 19 men, of whom two were
press representatives.
Nevertheless, the reports presented
show the club to be inahealthy condition financially and doing good work,
although the whole burden of lt falls
on a few.
Among those who attended the meeting were I. G. Nelson, F. M. Chad-

The chairman called for suggestions
for future action.
M. S. Parry thought that though the
balance on hand was a small one, tho
club might fairly congratulate Itself on
what had been achieved. He thought
that a really remarkable amount of advertising had lieen done at comparatively small expense. Some expenditures,
unfortunately, hal not resulted ln direct returns, but he felt lhat they had
not been wasted.
E. K. Beeston, ln moving the alop-

Verdict of Coroner's Jury on Death of
Dr. Johnson, Victim of Portland
Portland, Jan. 9.���There were no developments today ln the mysterious
death Monday night ot Dr. Phillip Johnson, the physician whose dead body waa
found under the Ford street bridge
Monday night. The coroner's Jury, after a brief Inquiry last night, came to
the conclusion that robbery waa the motive. Dr. Johnson waa murdered and
his body was thrown off the bridge.
The murdered man, Dr. Johnson,
came to Portland with hla newly wedded wife two months ago to establish hie
borne and to practice hie profession.
The couple bought a site for a home
in a fashionable section.
Mrs. Johnson, before her marriage
last tall, was a Mra. Scarborough. She
is a daughter of former Governor
Hoadly of Ohio. Dr. Johnson is a son
of Episcopal Arch-Deacon Johnson of
Staten Island, and a graduate of Columbia university.
Shortly after dining with his wife
last night, Dr. Johnson announced hla
Intention of visiting a Doctor Penton,
one of the state examining board, but
agalnBt the protestations ot hla wife
who feared highwaymen. On his
way Dr. Johnson called upon hla cousin
Alvord, assistant cashier in a local
What happened- at Alvord's house
has not been learned, Alvord refusing
to make any statement for publication.
Alvord's parents however, told the police that after leaving their home Dr.
Johnson walked two squares toward the
Ford Street bridge, two block's distant
to go to Dr. Penton's home. A short
time afterwards a car conductor found
Johnson's body lying ln Jefferson
street, 117 feet below the bridge.
Johnson's pockets had been turned Inside out and hll watch removed. Dr.
Johnson's empty pocketbook and a key
were found on the bridge above. There
were no evidences of a struggle.
Alvord when first approached by the
newapaper men for a statement waa
apparently eager to talk but excuaed
himself a moment and went to Mrs.
Johnson's room. Returning be informed
them Mrs. Johnson was prostrated and
all further efforts to get him to make
a statement were unavailing. The police met with no better results. Alvord
later on visited the police headquarters
and endeavored to secure possession of
some articles found on Johnson's body
hut waB unsuccessful. A visit to the
coroner had better results, that official
turning over to Alvord several articles.
Captain Bruin ot the police department inclines to the murder theory and
yet according to his statements to
newspaper men, he does not believe
Johnson was robbed, but Insinuates hla
belief of murder with some motive more
sinister than robbery.
Corbett and Murphy.
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 9.���Though no
championship title ls Involved an unusual amount of interest Ib being taken
hy the sporting fraternity in tonight's
go between Young Corbett and Tommy
Murphy. It ls to be a six-round affair
before the National Athletic club. Both
fighters are counted upon to make
their best possible Bhowing In order to
retrieve their reputations as fighters,
both having several defeats chalked
agalnBt them. Each of the principals
declares there will be a knockout before the hell sounds for the beginning
ot the Bii*h nund.
Owing to the public interest in the
power plant question the city engineer
waa interviewed by a representative of
The Dally Canadian. In reply to a
question aa to when the new plant
could be operated safely, Mr. Mculloch
said that It was Impossible to give any
definite Information until the expert of
the Allls-Chalmers-Bullock company had
Inspected the plant and decided on the
necessary changes. The addition of as
oil pump and the fitting of the bearings
to permit of oiling under pressure
would probably cause a delay of a
month or more.
Referring to the report published ln
The Dally Canadian of the 8th instant,
Mr. McCulloch stated that the generator had been tried under the day load
of the city, about 330 horse power, and
had run so hot that the test had to be
discontinued. As the plant was not
running satisfactorily, It was not deemed advisable to attempt to carry the
city load during the teBts. The eon-
tractors can obtain sufficient resistance
for testing by means of water rheostats.
As to changes ln the designs, the
shoe is on the other foot. The city
wished to make changes so as to make
use of the 10-foot extra head to be obtained by the dam of the West Kootenay Power ft Light Co., but the extra
price asked by the contractors waa m
exorbitant that the matter was dropped.
Mayor Gillett, when interviewed by a
reporter of The Dally Canadian, endorsed the statement of the city engineer, and added that the full city load
was over 600 horse power, but as yet
only the day load of 330 horse power
had been carried by the new plant   .

German Statesmen Decline to Slve It
Serious Consideration.
Berlin, Jan. 9.���The German government was ready months ago to send
delegates to the second peaoe conference at The Hague, but no hint came
from St. Petersburg regarding Its date.
Aa Germany has never taken tbe Initiative ln peace conference matters there
Is a feeling that If an Inquiry la to be
made of Emperor Nicholas concerning
the probable date of the meeting lt
ought to come from some other government, the United States, for Instance,
which made the first move ln the matter, or Great Britain, whose premier
takes a deep Interest tn the conference.
The question ot the suspension of armaments was attracting attention in
the United Statea and Great Britain,
and It Is asserted here that It cannot
seriously be discussed by responsible
German statesmen without impatience.
The declaration of the French premier,
M. Clemeneeau, regarding the necessity
that France be prepared for Instant
war ls considered by the German government an expression of the temper
ot the present French administration
as being alone a sufficient indication of
the fact that limitation of armaments
by agreement ts not yet within the
hounds of practicable statesmanship.

We thouBlH Uml In the resurrection
of John Olivers grievance al not being
taki-n into a Conservative cabinet 'three
anil a half years ago, ihs- opposition
hail reached bedrock iv. tbelr delvng
for maleral for criticism; We were
mistaken. I'l has now occurred to the
Nelson Daily News ihat Mr. McBride
should be condemned for dissolving ihe
alslature!    ii is a common complain!
���joppoaltlons and  oocaslonally  li  is
ni grounded. If sn administration
villi a fairly Iisiik tenure of office before It, uss burning question under dis
OlMson that was nol before Ihe ele-slo-
rase ai iin., preceding general elections,
dissolves suddenly to inke advantage of
division among tbelr opponents, ii may
be reasonably denounced ns a breach
of tie unwritten rules of tbe game. Hut
in tbe present case tbess condlUons do
not obtain. The present governmenl
hail, In anv event, only six nissiiihs
longer to retain office withoul Dissolving. Tin- Liberals have, ever since
Iheir defeat in 1908, professed themselves ready and eager for an appeal io
the people. In many constituencies. Including Nelson, their candidates were
already chosen, formally or Informally,
Their newspaper seers were so sure of
an early dissolution that many of them,
again including The Daily News, had
already fixed seveial dates for the else-
tlons, rill earlier Ihan the one named
hy the premier. Finally, then? is a
new qu'Bllon U'fore the electorate,
one which unfortunately has been made
a campaign issue by the Liberal press
���the question, "Shall llrlllsh Columbia
support her leader In his fight for justice in the financial relations of this
province with the Dominion government?" An editor who Is weary of reiterating the silly slanders about Kaien
Island and the Pendray lots, may well
be excused for trying lo find something
new to revive the sadly drooping spirits of his constituency, but his first
effort has been a most unhappy one.
li cannot be accepted as sincere even
by Ihe most loyally disposed members
of his own party.
The opinions expressed by It. P. Rithet of Victoria at the nomination meet-
In-, at which four Conservatives, led
hy Premier McBride himself, were
placed In the field as candidates for
the representation of the capital city,
will be echoed by business men, Irrespective of former party affiliations,
everywh- ns throughout the province.
Prosperity and progress have not of
late been such frequent visitors to
British Columbia that we can arford to
una them Ihe cold Macdonald shoulder
just when they seem likely to make
themselves at home. Iu the days before 18!>K, when there were no clear (II-
viding lines In provincial politics, Mr,
Hlths'i sat as senior member for Victoria and wns a valued member of the
house, enjoying the respect and confl-
il.-n, e of both parties. After 18118 he
withdrew from politics to devote hlni-
selt more closely to the big business
he hail built up In Victoria and San
Francisco, He has nol recorded any political opinion, and has not taken an
active pail lis nny campaign from that
time In the present Now he comes
forward, not ai a Conservative but as
a representative business man and as
:s patriotic llrlllsh Columbian to protest against any change of Ihe administration of tin- province which, within
the last three years, has been piloted
from bankruptcy to solvency, from depression to prosperity, Ills testimony
Is all tho more valuable because II Is
thai of a man who knows what he Is
talking about, and whose sincerity none
will question.
The local campaign committee rooms
arc designated respectively, "Liberal-
Conservative Committee Rooms" and
"Dr. Hall's Committee Rooms," The
difference Is significant. John A.
Kirkpatrick Will be elected partly because ho Is John A. Kirkpatrick, but
chiefly because he stands as a supporter of the most efficient administration
llrltlsh Columbia has had at least since
Nelson was a city���that of the Liberal-
Conservative iiarty. Dr. Hall and his
friends, on lhe olher hand, aro well
aware that any lingering   hopes   they
may entertain must be based on the
undisputed popularity of Dr, Hall. Any
claim based on the record of the Liberal party lu llrltlsh Columbia could
awaken oniy derision.
Isn't 11 time n new epithet were dls-
covercsl for Mr. Willie Mclnnes? He
Is now labelled powerful and merolless.
Hi- might be callesl invincible only for
a few incidents In his career which
rudely inconvenii'iit memories still retain. The flics of the Toronto Globe,
about the period of Willie's first scintillations at Oltuwa, contain a few,
Many good Liberals keep files ssf Ills-
Qlobe,   They will easily be found.
A 81 range lethargy has come over the
Liberal press of the province. Not only has the Vancouver World foiled to
launch a new sensation fssr some weeks,
hut evi'ii the Victoria correspondent of
The Dally News has forgotten that his
eontrai-t calls Issr something more than
mere reports of meetings and nominations. ,
Won't the Dally News vary even
slightly lhe diet It supplies to lis readers dally. "Roast beef and plum pudding" is royal fare, but continued day
after day Indefinitely It would certainly pall on the healthiest appetite. Similarly even the most thorough-going
Liberal must suspect that he is being
mocked when every Issue of his organ
tells him of another monster mass
meeting of his side with unprecedented
enthusiasm, followed by a new split iu
lhe Tory ranks. Surely there Is a limit
even  lo Grit credulity and gullibility.
Ills Honor Judge Henderson has resigned from the county court bench to
be a member of the Liberals' forlorn
hope iu Vancouver. With thai strange
lack of humor that formerly characterized his efforts as a public entertainer,
Air. Henderson���as we may now call
him���compares his position with tbat
of Sir John Thompson and Sir Oliver
.Mowai. His resignation from the
bench is the ouly point of resemblance,
Alex Henderson has already had a public career. Ill 1898 he was elected for
New Westminster In tbe interest of the
Turner administration, defeating J. C.
Brown, who stood for the Semiin opposition party. As soon as the late Lieutenant Governor Mclnnes began his remarkable exercise of his prerogative
by dismissing Mr, Turner, Alex Henderson deserted the party that elected hlm
anil went over to the enemy. Later,
after Joseph Martin was dismissed liy
Mr. Semiin, Alex, being the only lawyer on the government side, became, perforce, attorney general. But he knew
Hint his race was run, and soon afler
accepted a county court judgeship���not
a greal prize for an ex-attorney general. He probably feels now that with
vacancies on the supreme court bench
coining fairly fast, he had better make
a martyr of himself In the hope of Increased reward. While seeking to extenuate his treachery in 1898 his chief
plea was that all he bad said was "that
he had no use for the opposition." Evidently his contempt did not ap^ly to
lhe Semiin opposition particularly, but
to opposition generally. The opposition
benches are cold, hard and bare. Alex
likes warmth, comfort and at least opportunities. To such standard bearers
the Liberal party Is entirely welcome.
The dissatisfaction with the action of
lhe Otawa machine In pltchfoiklng Willie Mclnnes into British Columbia politics as a leader���if not the leader���is
nol confined to the Victoria Liberals,
ll is bl:t rly rejented by many of the
LMieial members * and candidates
throughout the province. John Oliver,
for Instance, has borne the burden and
heat of the fight for six years. He has
not spared his voice or his conscience.
He has exc lied even his present���or
former?���leader, J. A. Macdonald, ln
his zeal to find or make scindals. Why
should John be forced lo step back to
mako way for pushful Willie? To be
Sure, his ape- lie s are often ridiculous.
Hul what about Willie's? And John has
not had the distinction of being called
a liar and slanderer by the Toronto
Globe. But, If the Liberals plead, as
well (hey may, that poor John la an Impossibility as cabinet timber, whal
ftboUt Patterson of the IslnndB, Monroe
of Csililiwack, King of Cranbrook, or
Fred lloway, the Liberal candidate for
New Westminster? Fred Howay and
\\ 1 lie Mclnnes were schoolmates.
Those who know both would smile at
a comparison. Mr. lloway has been a
successful and honorable lawyer; he Is
sane, sober, diligent and has some
knowledge of the principles of government. In two respects only is he Inferior to Willie, In platform acrobatics and as a freak voice manipulator.
In his natural desire to make out a
good long brief from which to speak,
the lale Liberal leader has Included everything that tho McHrlde government
has done or left undone during their
three years of office. With the great
majority of the government's sins of
commission, Mr. Macdonald has no
fault to find except with the manner
in which they were done. This applies,
be It known, even to the Kaien Island

convinced himself that a school system mainialned by public money, partly granted from the provincial treasury and partly administered by local
Loards of trustees on lims defined by
statute, and regulated by a provincial
superintendent and inspectors, is not
state education. How he has accomplished such a feat is n psychological
problem which we haven't time to investigate. But he has given no hint of
what he would do tf returned to power to renit dy a condition that he imagines is dangerous. Would he amend
the School Act or repeal it? If so, to
what extent? Evidently, from his utterances, lie thinks it a great hardship
for the ratepayers to hflffe lo tax themselves directly for the support of their
tree public schools instead uf being taxed for them indirectly by the government of the province. If tbat is a hardship for rural municipalities, surely it
fe also a hardship lo the cities. Does
Mr. Macdonald advocate a return to the
paternaism of the period before 1891,
when officials at Victoria had the appointment, payment and dismissal of
all 'teachers, and it was no business of
parents���except as Ihey might affect it
through their representatives In the
legislature���who taught their children,
or what remuneration he received for
teaching them. If Mr. Macdonald is not
a mere critic, if he really has any ideas
on the subject, it is his plain duty to
develop them. It is easy to say that

rate reform and a general regulation of
common carriers and public service
corporations is to he the most prominent feature of the Alabama legislature's present session, which is now
under way. B. B, Comer, the new governor, was elected on a platform pledged to railroad rate reform and aa tlie
legislature Is in sympathy with his
ideas lt is 'but reasonable to expect
that the session will devote considerable time to an endeavor to wring concessions from the railroads. Governor
Comer will assume office next week
and will then set forth his views at
length ln his Inaugural address.
As the Alabama legislature meets
regularly but once in four years there
is always an abundance of business
awaiting its consideration. Good roads
and the improvement and extension of
the public school system of the state
will re elve attention. Local option
also wilt be the subject of debate.
Flans to promote immigration will be
the subject of another measure to be
Introduced. A bill to prohibit bucket
shops hns been prepared. Anti-child
labor laws also will he considered and
acted upon.

City Engineer McCulloch states that
there Is plenty of water in the creeks
for the city's needs, but the water motors in use and the practice of leaving
taps running to prevent freezing havo
taxed the capacity of the 14-inch main
and thus lowered the supply in the reservoir. Unless the heavy waste of water is stopped it may be necessary to
cut off the water motors at present in
use. At present the water consumption of the city exceeds 1,000,000 gallons per day.
