i of the opposition arguments cannot

J Mr, Ellison ure assured at all these
|iln*rn  polnta.
Mncdonuld's meetings have been
attended by J, A. McKclvle, who Iiiih
proved nmre than a match for the Liberal candidate, his style of lucid exposition, clear logical reasoning, and
slashing criticism never falls to urouHe
the enthusiasm of the audience.
A feature of the opposition campaign that will be worth a great many
voles to Price Ellison's supporters has
been the Importation of Duncan Hobs.
M. P., for Yale-Curlliiin, and his activity
in the district. Mr. Hohh has, personally, no Influence whatever ln the district, anil his presence iu the riding Is
generally taken as proof conclusive of
the objectionable Interference of the
Ottawa machine lit provincial polltlcH,
and Is far more likely to prejudice than
to serve the cause he deBlres to advance.
Rival  Organizations Fight for Control
of Winter Sport.
New York. Jan. 29.���The board of directors of the National Skating Association ni a meeting last night, decided to
cs.mply with the ultimatum of Preal-
dmt J. E. Sullivan, of the Amateur Ath-
1' tic Union, thai unless the National
Association receded from a resolution
it recently adopted giving support to
the Amateur Skating Association of
Canada, In preference to the Canadian
Amati'iir Athletic Union he woulil break
off Ihe alliance between the Amateur
Athletic Union nnil the National Skating Association. The directors' mes t-
lng of the National Skating Association
was called last night at the request of
President Sullivan of the olher association, who asked that they n'eonslder
their former action to rescind th<" en-
slorsement of the vote, which stuod 7
to 6. The trouble was caused by the
endorsement which the National asso
rlatlon gnve to the meetlnir which Is to
be h"ld In Montreal next Saturday under the aiiBpices of the Amateur Skating Association of Canada, and In opposition to the Canadian Amateur Union,
which attempted to assume control of
the sport. The Amateur Athletic Union
sloes not sanction the Montreal meet.
Pope and Bishops Offer Suggestion to
French Government���May  Errd
Parlfl. Jan, 29.���The proposition
which tho French bishops, with the approval of the pope, huve now submitted
hi the government, seepis to offer the
first real prospect of an adjustment of
the conflict between church and state,
under the separation regime. While il
Involves a modification of the position
taken in the last, papa] encyclical, tlie
proposition put forward has all the appearance of an ultimatum. Whether
tin- government ln spite of concessions,
made and making, in the interest of
religions peace, will accept a settlement based upon the absolute recognition of the Human hierarchy, remains
to be seen. The mutual contract which
the bishops have submitted provides
tor virtual lease of the churches ity
perpetuity to the parish priests by the
mayors, the lease being for 18 years
and renewable hy their successors.
The leases are invalid without the
express ratification of the bishop and
becomes null the moment the parish
priest loses the bishops' authorization.
The bishops must act together to insure the acceptance of the contracts
everywhere and by everyone.

Contest in Greenwood is
J. A. Macdonald at Public Meeting
Left Slanders Severely Alone���
Made Many Friends
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Greenwood, Jan. ���!'.,.���The meeting
held in the auditorium Saturday evening lam: in the interest of Mr. Naden,
:h'. Libera: candidate, was a great success! In point of numbers and enthusiasm. It developed inlo a great field
day, however, rather than into a party
rally, wltu slight odds, though It would
seem, In the Liberal favor.
Dr. Mntheson presided, and prompt,
ly at the hour called on air. Naden.
Whether il was because Mr. Naden
was at his own meeting or because he
was supported by the presence or the
Liberal leader, or because he has be-
cume moie at home on the platform
than he appeared at the late Conservative meeting; for some reason, however, he made a much better impression than before ami when he had cou-
cluds'd he had shown lo a divided audience and a manifestly hostile gallery
that he was fearless and Independent,
and evidently able to take care of hini-
sUf. He patiently listened to questions intended to embarrass him and
just as patiently answered them. He
suited his claims to the recognition of
Ihe electorate on three grounds���his
record locally ln civic affairs, the record of the Libera] party in the provincial parliament, and tlle misdeeds of
the McBride administration. He closed
a frank and manly address with the
declaration that If elected h" would
hold himself superior to the domination of anv machine or anv corporation.
.Mr. Warren's address was brief, as
became him in an opponent's meeting.
Tis appearance was greeted by loud
npplaust. and the points in his speech
were received with enthusiasm. His
appeal for support next Saturday rested on his personal record and on the
administration of the government for
the last three years. He asked Mr.
Mncdonalil to fell the audlenoe what he
would do in powei Be knew what he
was as a critic of sMcBride. but lie wanted to know what he proposed doing If
entrusted with tho reins of government.
.Mr. Dynes, the (Socialist candidate,
was fearless in his attacks on Mr. Mac-
disnald, Mr. Mclnnes and Mr. Naden.
but Indiscretion marred what he evidently intended for a big effort. He
was particularly unhappy In his determination to hold the platform long after his time was up. and the chairman
had so announces!. He seemed to forget that he was the guest of fhe Liberal party and to think that the host
who has invited one to spend a day
may take exception when the visitor
proposes to remain a week. His party
must have felt chagrined at his explanation of the "red" flag of his party. He claimed that all races, white,
black, red. yellow and brown, had the
same colored blood���red���flowing in
their veins, anil the red flag stoud for
a universal brotherhood. If this be so
the point of criticism urged against
Chinaman and Hindoo appears obscured.
Mr. Deane. of Ihe Nelson News, did
not meet with a very hearty reception.
Whether It was a somewhat patronising air. or the manner thnt Implied
that Macdonald, and 1. and possibly
Nails.n. are ihe factors to be must considered, that weighed wiih the audlenoe
II cannot be salsl. but evidently he had
n bad Quarter of an hour before deciding ihai lils mission lay elsewhere and
sat down. The meeting hardly did Itself Justice In Its treatment of Mr.
Deane, however, a spirit of fair play
b -Ins.* noticeably absent.
When Mr. Maeilonald rnfe Iss reply
It appeared for the moment ns If he
was to meet Ihe same fate as Ihe pre
ceding speaker. But lie soon showed
Whai nn able mail can do with a critical audience, nnd before he had proceeds'!! far he had the best of order
antl attention, broken now and again
by questions which he considered fair
anil which he answered In nn eminently cnnilid and painstaking wny. His
speeob of over nn hour was a clear
presentation of the Liberal case submitted to the people ns lo a sworn
lury, desirous of finding a Jusl verdict.
II,. deall with no scandals and iiii bear-
say, nppeallng to the nets of the Me-
brlde government as his only grounds
of arraignment Whether lie made
voters for Mr. Naden or not may only
be conjectured, but he certainly made
friends for hlmsrsif. nnd when lie con-
Oluded the verdict of all must have
been, "nn able mnn. Conscientiously pre-
aentlng a casn he believes In."
And now that all the big meetings
of the campaign, bo far as known, ar2
over, your correspondent believes the
issue still in, doubt. Without familiarity with the doings of any of the committee rooms, ignorant of the complications of any of the party committees,
judging only from street talk and pub-
lie meetings' results, he still believes
the contest a close one, with the odds
iu favor of the Conservative candidate.
An unknown current, uot apparent
on the surface to him, may be setting
strongly in favor of one of the other
candidates, but he ililuks election day
will show thc contest rather equal,
with no candidate far ln the lead. Little bitterness between parties has thus
far developed, for which happy issue
the credit may bo divided between the
nominees whose first effort appears to
have been to be gentlemen in the campaign.

The adjourned meeting of the city

Socialist  Orator   From    Seattle    Aske
Subscriptions   for   His   Paper   in
Public Meeting.
{Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, .fan. 29.���A moat enthusiastic meeting of citizens, numbering about 600, tt_..embled last evening
in the opera house to nek? W. T. Mills
of Seattle, the Socialist orator, address
the meeting on behalf of the local Socialist, candidate, John Mclnnes. Mr.
Charles Hunting acted as chairman and
introduced the first speaker, Mr. John
Mclnnes, who at once read the Socialist platform. He then launched into an
attempt to cast discredit on his political opponents. He said that after the
election Mr. Miller would be looking
for a long job similar to the one Judge
tUement secured after he was defeated.
His remarks in this connection were
not received well by the audience.
He was followed by Mr. W. T. Mills
of Seattle. Mr. Mills Is unquestionably a good speaker, and retained the
attention of his hearers while he explained the principles of Socialism, after which he openly ridiculed the Idea
of H. \V. Gregory, the Liberal candidate,
representing himself to be a Liberal-
Labor candidate. He said that Gregory
was n^ver nominated by any labor organization In the riding. Although a
good speaker, Mr. Mills as a vote-
maker for Mclnnes was a failure, as
the labor party in Grand Forks have a
stroig feeliug against foreign agitators
comlnp- into Canada and trying to secure votes. To put a climax to the un-
pnpulaiity of Mr. Mills at this meeting
In c ncluding his speech he intimated
that be Ind a double purpose ln appearing before a Grand Forks audience
on tbe present occasion, tho first being
tn support the candidacy of Mr. Mclnnes. while he appeared ns a newspaper man to collect subscriptions for a
new Socialist paper he was about to
start and edit, and he would Uke a show
of hands who among the audience
wou'fl be PuVserib'^rs tn his paper. Out
nf Bympithy for tbe old man a number of bands went up, but even thev
most enthusiastic Socialist now regrets
lhat the meeting was held at all. rt
Ifl now admitted here that the Soclnlist
vote as well as the Liberal Is complete-
ly divided, nnil Mr. Miller's election is
generally conceded.

was at once removed to his home in the

German Susceptibilities Hurt  by  High
Handed Seizure.
Constantinople. Jan. 29. ��� Fehml
Pasha, chief of the secret police of the
palace and a confidant and favorite of
the sultan, has come into serious conflict with the embassy, owing to his
action ln causing the seizure recently
of a ship and cargo deHtined for Hamburg. The sultan tried to pacify the
embassy officials by Immediately ordering the release of the cargo, but
Germany ln a forcible note to the Porto

Pasha, pointing out that he was guilty
of an infraction of the penal code, rendering liiiiiH.'lf liable to life imprisonment.
Log  Drive on  Kettle  River Threatens
Grand Forks.
(Special  to  The Dally  Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Jan. 2!).���A most serious problem Is at present confronting
the Yale-Columbia Lumber * company,
Ihe Granby company and the residents
of this valley, which ls no less than the
fact that at the present time nearly
6,000,000 feet of now logs are being cut
on the North Fork of Kettle river by
contractors . employed by the Yale-Columbia Lumber company. These logs
will presumably be brought to the company's sawmill at Cascade by driving
them down tlie Kettle river. If this Is
done what will become of the big dam
at the tlrauby smelter? This is the
question that is bothering tho public
just now. It is Intimated that a log
chute might possibly be built over the
dam, but If this was done and the
chute should fall to do Its duty, tt is
hinted that the smeltor dam might be
seriously Injured and possibly carried
completely away, In whicli case the
city of Orand Forks would be flooded,
entailing n great loss of property and
possibly some loss of life. From present appearances the Yale-Columbin
Lumber company will be forced to op-
yard of Vice President Gomes at Caracas, Venezuela, during the night of
January IT, and ln the fighting which
followed Governor Mata and several
others were killed and a number, including the commander of the troops,
were wounded. Dr. Luis Mata, ex-minister of public works of Venezuela, was
appointed governor of the federal district of Caracas on the recent return
of General Castro to the presidency.

with cheers for tbe Conservative candidate. His address must have been a
disappointment to even hla warmest
friends. As an exposition of the policy
of a party coming from the month ot

greater failure and even he himself felt
the eftect of his antagonistic audience

Branches in British Columbia:
W. T. R. Preston was thc. organizer of
that sang of nrofeBsional corruption!sts
designated by J. P, Whitney as "the
dark lantern brigade," whose misdeeds
so thoroughly aroused old Ontario
that the Liberal party in that province
was nearly wiped out at the polls.
In spite of his notorious offenses,
and of his later connection with the
North Atlantic Trading fraud, Preston
is still retained in the service of the
Laurler government, and "the machine"
that hu created has been developed into an organization as wide au the dominion. Liberal cabinet ministers direct its work and benefit individually
aa well as collectively by its crimes.
Thai machine has now undertaken
the conquest of Hritish Columbia. Here
it is somewhat handicapped by the fact
that its most expert ballot-box manipulators, personutors, and bribers, do not
know local men, and Westerners are
not much addicted to selling their
votes. But unfortunately there are
enough unprincipled Liberals in British
Columbia to furnish information and
The main effort of the machine Is*
however, the campaign of W. \V. B.
Mclnnes, the "expert" as "a liar and a
slanderer." Mclnnes' funds are drawn
straight from Ottawa, there is no pretence of local control. The effort is a
desperate one and could only be made
by the most abandoned political gamester. Mclnnes has no capacity for administration, but he is, the Toronto
Globe certified even before the attained his present proficiency, "an expert
at the business" of "lying and slandering."
We are confident that the electors
of Hritish Columbia will administer
such a reproof to the Ottawa corrup-
tionlsts that their filthy hands and
filthy tongues will leave Hritish Columbia alone for years to come.

There wan a time, and still not far
enough removed for the younger readers iu remember, when Canadians iu>-
sumed u lofty torn' In discussing iho
political methods In vogue in the
United states. "Machine politics"
were then held in contempt, and both
Canadian parties could truthfully assert ihai their organisations for campaigns did not deserve to be called machines,
Some day, perhaps, when all voters
are equally learned, Intelligent and honest, there win be no place for convass-
log, do need for speech*making at public meetings, nor for party newspapers.
Every question will he decided by a
majority of the voters calmly and without prejudice, ���
Bul in the present imjierfeet state

and soundest principles is never achieved without highly organised effort ami
the exercise of ull available powers of
it is quite legitimate, and in the public Interest, that the rival parties
should present the merits of the policies they respectively advocate as fully
and as forcibly as possible.
Bul such effort costs money, Committee rooms, halls for public meetings, printing, stationery and the travelling expenses of speakers, amount In
the aggregate to huge sums,
"Where do the funds come from7
Recent Investigations In the United
States have shown where a large part
of tbo enormous: Hepubllcan party cain-
patgn  funds of    1898,  1900    and   1**04
came from.
A big campaign fund is a source of
danger. There is a limit to legitimate
election expenses. The results admitted in the United States and already
frequently exposed in Canada, are the
use of the surplus for utterly corrupt
purposes during the campaign, and,
worse still, the creation of a permanent party organization with a secret
service committee called the machine.
In the United States, in city, county,
state and even federal elections, many
times the choice of candidates, and
even the choice of issues was dictated
by the party machines..
It is unnecessary to say that the establishment of such a system would
ieduce constitutional government to a
lu the United States thc power of the
machine is already on the wane. Theodore Koosevelt was never the choice of
the managers of his own party. He
was forced upon tbem by the overwhelming strength of public opinion in
hits favor. In thc smaller spheres of
stairs and cities also, a new development of awakened civic conscience
has now broken the evil power of the
greatest menace to American peace and
Hut  as it Is being eradicated in the
neighboring republic the pernicious system has fastened Itself upon Canada,
where ten  years ago lt   was unknown.
Sir John Macdonald was a great or-
ganlser, bul Ills organization was created for each individual campaign. Never In his career did he maintain ')r
penult to be maintained, nn army of
professional political workers. Never did he permit the creation of a Dominion Conservative organization for
the purpose of destroying political opponents in lhe different provinces..
The healthy political independence of
the provinces was well Illustrated in
the cases of Ontario and Nova Scotia.
Holh returned large Conservative majorities In Dominion elections during
the long regimes of two provincial I.lb-
eial premiers, Sir Oliver Mowat and
W. S. Fielding.
But the last ten years have seen a
significant change. It was first brought
to public notice by the publication of
W. T. H. PreBton's Bcandalous cablegram from Ixjndon to his former co-
operators, after a successful campaign
of    corruption���"Hug    the    Machine."

W. W. B. Mclnnes, speaking in Nelson, described as "most preposterous"
the charge made by The Daily Canadian that he was in charge of the Liberal campaign aa the hireling of the
Ottawa machine, and that the object
of the fight ls to secure the return of
a government that will do the bidding
of that machine. The Liberal press
seconded Mclnnes' reply with expressions of feigned Indignation. Every
Liberal who is taking an active part
in the campaign knows that the charge
is absolutely true. The following is
pan of a despatch to the Toronto Mail
and Empire from Ha special correspondent at Ottawa:
���'Highly significant is lho expedition
sent by Lhe Laurier government to
Drltish Columbia to fight against
Premier McUride and his cabinet lu
the provincial election now being held.
The Inteution of the federal ministry
to interfere was decided upon at a
meeting attended by Sir Wilfrid Laurler, Mr. Frank Oliver, Mr. Templeman
and Mr. Clifford Sifton.
"At that caucus the situation was
thoroughly discussed, and the determination to offer the conduct of the
campaign to Governor Mclnnes, of the
Yukon was decided upon. Mr. Mclnnes
is to be financed from Ottawa and ls|
to bu accompanied by a number of machine M, P.'b, who will take charge of
various districts."
Tho map of Kaien Island and vicinity
on the third page of this paper is full
of Instruction. It shows what has been
sold to the Grand Trunk Pacific company by the McBride government. It
also shows what the Dominion government had the effroutery to suggest
should also be given to that company.
The Dominion order-ln-councll giving
advice and instructions to provincial
governments is a now development in
Canadian politics. There can be no
pretence that the Dominion has any;
control In tbe matter or that the general lntorest of Canada Is at all concerned. It is purely a provincial matter. The provincial government is "advised that 11 would be in the public interest" to -surrender to the Grand
Trunk Pacific company, practically the
whole of the coast line In the neighborhood of the proposed terminal site. It
is only intelligible as a threat tbat. If
tbe government has the hardihood to
refuse to pay blackmail, the whole
strength of the machine will be directed agahist them. Premier McHrlde did
have the hardihood lo refuse. The machine is at work. What will British
Columbia decide?
When a party veteran like Joseph
Martin, who has spent a Ilfo time fighting Liberal battles and denouncing everything connected with Toryism, declares his intention of voting for five
Conservative candidates, thore is food
for reflection to every thinking man.
No one cau deny that with all his
faults Joseph Martin is a man of strong
convictions, and that he Is generally
In earnest. The reply may be that Joseph Martin is still angry at tho Ingratitude of tho party'*-, treatment of
him ln 1896. But In spite of that, Joseph Martin was a consistent Liberal
in   BritlBh Columbia    politlcH    for ten
J.Houston (Ind.)
years. Ills revolt now is provoked by
the flagrant offences of the party machine and its avowed intention of
bringing British Columbia to heel.
The Dally News confesses editorially
this morning that the campaign bas
not been won on the platform, that the
large Independent vote is, so far as Th��*
Daily News is aware, still Independent
Such a statement would not bo surprising but for the. character of the campaign waged so far. Surely it musl bo
assumed that the greal majority of independent electors are honest ami intelligent. A well grounded charge that
a minister of the crown accepted a
bribe with the consent, even aftor the
fact, of his colleagues In the cabinet,
should be enough to defeat any novern-
ment ln the British Empire. We now
have an unconscious, ami therefore
probably perfectly truthful, statement
of The Daily News' real opinion of the
Vancouver World stories.

���' William H. Ross, the Con-
had to do to secure for hlm
"majority, was to keep up their
JJtil.v demonstration that wns
|1<* In Rowland In favor of .1. A.
|ld was confined to n few Do
minion employees nnd a very small
army of Grit heelers. Lorno Campbell,
who was one of the moat prominent and
most respected men of the Kootenays,
had an enormous following, and the
fact thnt he accepted a nomination to
oppose the Liberal leader, was to the
opposition workers like a disastrous
bolt from the blue. In addition to being widely popular, Mr. Campbell had
shown himself to be a man with a firm
grasp of political affairs, and one who
would make the best representative
that the riding could wish for.
James Schofleld possessed the unlimited confidence of Ymir and when Hnr-
ry Wright, who was expected hy the
Liberals to cause a split in the Conservative convention, mnde the nomine*
nation unnnlmous and called for the
united support of the party, Fred
Hume'B chances dwindled Into lnslgnlfl-
At tlrnnd Forks the Conservatives
had In Brneat Miller one of the strongest candidates In the province. Tho
only forces he had to reckon with were
lhe' Socialists, Gregory, the Liberal, being considered out of the fight.
In Greenwood the public meeting had
proved that while the Socialists had
somo strength, tho Liberals hud practically none, and E. 0. Warren was without doubt as to his success on February 2nd.
In nn Interview the premier referred
to the supnnsed scandal which has
been unenrlhed by tho opposition ns a
political rom-buck. He said: "1 fully
endorse tbe statement 1 made al Vernon lo the effect that there Is nol a
word of truth In tho slorles which have
been circulated and the government
courts the most searching engulry. The
licenses wore granled lo Caron and his
associates In the usual wny nnd were
not Jeopardized to tho slightest extent."
In dealing with the Kaien Islnnd mailer Premier McHrlde wns equally emphatic. He spoke of Ihe bnrgaln entered Into by the government ns a pood
one, and pointed out Ihnt the strongest
supporters of tho Libornl party had
been unable to advance anything I""
Ineffective criticism In attacking the
policy of tho administration In thai retard,    At ono of his meetings he had
personally Invited W. C. Wells, formerly chief commissioner of Lands and
Works to attend ln order that he might
have an opportunity to lay before hlm
the arguments of the opposition against
the course adopted iu granting thc
Grand Trunk Pacific railway a site for
its Pacific coast terminus.
"At any rate," he continued, "anything of which the government might
be accused sinks Into Insignificance
when compared with thc attempt of the
Dominion government to defraud Hritish Columbia of a large urea of the
choicest lands In the vicinity of Prince
Rupert in   behnlf  of  that  corporation.
