Labor Question in Kootenay Already Acute
He E. Croasdaile's Resolution Carried
Decisively after Animated Debate in Association.
Tlie frull growers of Kootenay, at a
full  meeting,  by a decisive majority
vote ask that the head tax on Chinese
Immigrants he remitted '�� enable an
adequate supply of aKrlcullnral labor
U> be admitted. The debate was animated, and  not  one-sided.
The special genera! meeting of the
Kooti-nay Krult Growers' Association,
called ut the request of H. E. Croasdaile ami others, was held this morn-
lug at 11 o'clock in the boaril of trade
There were present President James
Johnstone, in the chair; J. E. Annable,
F. J. Summons, H. E. Croasdaile, C. C.
Bourke, CI. O. Uuehanan, Captain Pad-
don, .J J. Campbell, H. Williams. J. \V.
Kord, J. Tarry, J. Hyslop, F. D. Arundel, C. S. Moore, C. W. Busk and many
others, about 40 all together.
The minutes of the last general
meeting were read and adopted.
H. E. Croasdaile presented the following resolution: '
"Whereas, the Kootenay Fruit (Irow-
ers' Association, Limited, has been
formed for the purpose of fostering
and encouraging the fruit growing industry in this district; and
"Whereas, for the successful prose-
CQtion of the industry, it Is essential
that, an adequate supply of labor be
secured;   and
"Whereas, tbe slight experience already gained lias di-monsi rated thnt
ihe necessary labor is not now available, a considerable quantity of berries
having gone to waste last year for
want of pickers, with the consequence
that some growers who proposed to
engage in the culture of small fruits
and berries are now hesitating to do
so; and
"Whereas, there is no prospect of
any such accession through the ordinary medium of immigration of suitable white labor as will meet the requirements of the case, and we have
therefore the prospect that the industry will be dwarfed and crnmped instead of growing and expanding Into
the dimensions which our remarkable
advantages of soil and climate had
given us reason to expect;  nnd
"Whereas, the Chinese have shown
themselves to be efficient pickers, nnd
aria good general workers on fruit
"Therefore, be it Resolved, That
while regretting the necessity of taking a stand antagonistic to the views
nf many of our fellow-provincials, this
association, in furtherance of the objects of its Incorporation, is compelled
in reoommend that the policy of exclusion of Chinese labor by ihe imposition of a prohibitive tax be modified
to the extent that Chinese engaged ns
agricultural laborers or domestic servants be allowed to enter the Dominion free of head tax, a system of supervision tinder the auspices of the
Dominion government to be instituted
to ensure that Chinamen so admitted
ure not allowed to engage in other
lines of labor,"
Speaking to his resolution, Mr.
Croasdaile conceded that the labor difficulty was noi yet acute, but contended that It was felt already and
wus bound to grow worse, He said
thut apart from the question of price,
the only source of agricultural labor
wus lhe Chinese. Every Industry, he
snld, lu British Columbia had nt lirsl
been dependenl upon Chinese labor,
and some Industries must continue to
lie. lie did not wish to Introduce Chinese lo compete with white' labor, but
maintained that white lubor was not
now, nor likely to be, available for
purposes of agriculture.
Junius Johnstone snld that he hud
tried every kind of labor; he had for a
long time a sentimental objection to
employing Chinese, bul he hud found
Ihem esseutial. efficient and. honest.
Ue would like the Introduction of
white labor, but hud no hope of over
obtaining It. Tho only white labor
ever avalluble, und that only temporarily, wns Inexperienced and Incompetent Provided proper regulation of
Immigration was secured, and a good
class of Chinese laborers obtained, he
strongly  fuvored  tho resolution.
T. Morley seconded the resolution
and endorsed Mr. Johnstone's conl"n-
tlons. Ho nlso regretted the scarcity
of while labor, but saw uo hope of any
remedy. While Chinese labor Ih es
sentlal, he  thought  It a  hardship Ihai
the price of it should be increased by
B prohibitive head tux,
Cecil Bourke objected on the ground
thut It would be breaking faith with
the British who are being urged to
come to Canada. He did not regret
the ambition of British laborers to become land ownerB, and urged tbat they
be not excluded by putting Chinese ln
control of the labor market.
C. (J. Broadwood sympathized with
Mr. Bourke's protest, but was certain
tbat other labor was not obtainable.
He would gladly Employ British and
Canadians, but they were not available.
J. J. Campbell thought that securing
Chinese would not exclude white men.
He said he employed four white men,
but could not do so unless he also had
Chinese. If Chinese were excluded���
and the present laws aimed at that���
the fruit-growing Industry must be
abandoned. He contended that It was
absurd that every kind of labor was
available and untaxed except the one
kind required. More and cheaper
skilled agricultural labor would do
more than anything else to develop
the land, and would creato employment for even more white laborers.
He favored the resolution, while emphasizing the importance of regulation
and limitation, as suggested in tbe resolution. He Bald that every part of
Western Canada was crying for workmen thai could not be found, and in*
dustries were contracted in consequence. : J.J
Mr. Campbell's speech was loudly
J. E. Annable told that in Manitoba
and the new provinces the question
was already a burning one. The western harvest this yeur would require
36,000 men, and no one hoped for half
of it. He quoted R. M. Palmer as saying that It was useless to ask for the
remitting of the Chinese tax, and suggesting that European labor be thoroughly  investigated.
Captain Paddon told of the experience of Natal land owners and the Introduction of Indian coolies. He favored similar treatment of the Chinese.
Crozier Bourke thougbt It useless to
ask a government to repeal an act
just passed, but favored securing Japanese labor.
J. J. Campbell thought an earnest
and united appeal would not be ignored.
J. W. Ford opposed the resolution.
���fe contended that land owners in
British Columbia could afford to pay
for white labor. He thought white
labor could be obtained, and urged the
prior claims of fellow-Britishers, even
if they could not be bosaed like Chinese.
James Johnstone, in reply to J. W.
Kord. said that he ku��iv,_!rom his owu
experience that, the only class of British labor available was useless for agriculture.
J. J. Campbell suggested a second
resolution urging assistance, as suggested by F. J. Summons, to skilled
British laborers who had not the
means to emigrate.
G. O. Buchanan thougbt the labor
difficulty was already acute, as planting has been reduced because it was
known that labor could not be obtained. He thought nothing could be done
in Europe, as nil immigrants induced
by great efforts of the Dominion government are taken in tlie prairies, and
were never available for British Columbia. He thought there was no
prospect of un adequate supply of agricultural labor from any such source,
or from any other source except China.
Berry picking, he thought, would never be (lone well by any but Chinese or
Indian labor. He did not wish to see
young Britons and Canadians engaged,
as farm laborers; there was room for
them all  as independent  ranchers.
Mr. Buchanan conceded the certainty of opposition und the unlikelihood
of Immediate relief, but he believed
there was hope, and that a change
mlghl come very soon. He saw no
principle justifying the exclusion ' of
Chinese, while Japanese, l.ascurs, Hindoos and Slavs were free. He thought
it an unfortunate attempt to create a
monopoly of labor, and so perpetuate
artificially high wages.
After a few other speeches nnd a
brief reply by Mr. Croasdaile, the
resolution wus put nnd oanied by a
vote of 15 lo 8, many not voting. Copies were ordered to be sent to the government   and   to  other  associations.

Three hours prior to the murder a

newsiiaper office from Moscow asking
for news of M. Herzenstoln, and saying it was reported In Moscow that ho

M. Herzensteln was of Jewish descent and very wealthy. His attacks
on the mlnlstor of finance and lower
house of parliament attracted widespread attention. He supported the
ronstHiitiiiual domocrats for land appropriations.
Whether or not Mr. Walter Wellman
succeeds ijv his proposed ueiial dash
for the pole next month, and whether
or not the enterprise is prompted by
the scientilic spirit or by a desire for
advertisement, it seems certniu that
the big dirigible balloon ln which he
ls to make bis attempt is a remark;!
ble'piece of work, entirely apart from
its great size. The balloon, we are
told in an article contributed by a
Paris correspondent, has been designed and consaucted with very great
care by Louis Godard at his aeronautic establishment near Paris.
The most casual observer will notice
its substantial construction, and it
seems likely to weather the severest
shocks which it may receive In Its
voyage toward the pole. No less than
seven thicknesses have been used by
Mr. Godard in making the canvas. The
principal novelty lies in the use of layers of pure Para rubber, which are
placed between the layers of silk and
cotton canvas. This is the first time
that a light, as well as a strong, envelope has been secured in this way.
Starling from the inside, we have first
a layer of strong and specially woven
French silk fabric; then on the silk
is applied a layer of rubber, and on
top of this comes a layer of cotton
canvas. A thinner layer of rubber
comes next, and then a second layer
of cotton. Over this and forming the
outer coating of the balloon ls a thin
layer of rubber. Such a combination
of layers is very resistant, both to the
pressure of the gas and to tbe moisture, which ls one of the well-known
features to be met with in the polar
regions. Seeing that tbe rubber is attacked by the atmosphere, it is not a
usual thing to place it on the outside
of the balloon; but in the present case
it has been used for a number of reasons, the principal ones being that the
airship will be In use but a comparatively short time, and that It was de-
olred to have a smooth surface, and
especially lo avoid the, penetration of
moisture into the tissues of the balloon, which would weight It down.
What Is striking about the whole
construction is the practical Ideas
which prevail in the design of all the
parts. Thus Instead of using a long,
cigar-shaped body, Mr. Godard preferred to shorten up the balloon considerably, and give a length which ia
only three times the largest diameter,
so as to make It quite steady and easy
to handle In the filling operations, as
well as ln the actual flight. Thus we
have a balloon whose total length ls
Hit) feet and greatest diameter 62 feet.
A long guide rope will trail upon the
ice so ns to steady the airship's flight.
For these different reasons It will be
seen that the chances of accident are
very  much  lessened.
The car ls suspended by steel piano
wires, and at each end Is a propeller
driven by a separate motor. Between
them Is ibe main deck and also the
cabin, which Is thus described:
The main cabin, made of osier, Is
somewhat above a man's height and
covers the whole width of the nacelle,
having almtist a cubical form. On either side are six windows of a lighl
basket work, and other windows are
made In the front and rear of Ihe cabin. A complete set or wireless telegraphy apparatus Is installed In the
1'iiliin. The mast wire Is formed by
tbe steel guide-ropc cable which trails
upon Ihe Ice. Thus lhe party will bo
able to keep up a constant communication with the base of operations at
Spltzbergen, nnd from there with Ham-
merfest, so that If all goes well we will
constantly have news of the expedition.
The motive power for this great airship Is to be furnished, as noted above,
by two gnsoltne motors and two separate propellerB, so thut If anything
should happen lo the principal motor
tho second one will be sufficient i\o run
the balloon.
Passenger   Rates   Reduced.
Philadelphia, Pa., August 1���Important changes ln passenger rates were
announced yesterday by Fourth Vies'-
President John 13. Thayer, of the
Pennsylvania railroad, following a
meeting of tho board of sllreclors of
that company. The company has de-
clued to reduce the maximum two-way
fares from 3 1-3 and 3 cents to 2 1-2
cents a mile. The new rate will probably be effective on September 1st.
The company will also on September
1st place on sale 1,000-mlle tickets,
valid only on Its line or the Pittsburg
and Erie, at the flat price of $20. These
mileage tickets will be transferable.
Liberal Organizer Ignorant of Geography  and  Strays  Afield.
One hears all kinds of political ru-
niors these days, says the Golden Star,
it Is evident that an election will Boon
be pulled off. Who the candidates
for the Columbia district will be your
correspondent does not know, but the
names mentioned on the Liberal side
are John Btickham, J. C. Greene, O. D.
Hoar, W. C. Wells, H. Atchison and
Rufus KImptim. while on the other
side the names of those who are eager
to run are too numerous ^to mention.
Peter Sebastian will be an Independent, and John Taynton will run on the
Socialist; ticket. A well-known ��� Wll-
mer philanthropist will divide honors
wllh   Sebastian.
It ls reported that a stranger got
last last week going from McKay's
ranch to the springs. This is the second case we have heard of in this section. A few years ago a prominent
Golden citizen lost his bearings wiuie
organizing for W. C. Wells and drifted
over into Jennings, .Montana, and commenced organizing Wells clubs there.
The savuges of that belt did not take
to Wells, preferring whiskey straight,
and the Golden man had to take to
the hills, landing a few days afterwards in an exhausted condition on
the wagon road not ten miles from
Brisco. This might seem like a joke
to some, but the genial citizen will tell
you it was no joke with him.
J.  D.   Moore,   Government   Road   Expert,   Will   Visit   Balfour���Petition
ia  Largely  Signed.
The farmers of Balfour are not quite
unanimous about the question of the
government road but a majority are
certainly with the petitioners, Messrs.
Gray and McKay. A supplementary
petition endorsing the request for delay and Investigation was presented to
Commissioner R. A. Renwlck this
morning, as follows:
"We, the undersigned ranchers of
Balfour and vicinity, endorse certain
statements made to the government
agent by MesBrs. McKay and Gray concerning the manner in which the road
along the north shore is being constructed and the waste of the money
on the same."
Among those who signed it are
Catt. Padden, Crozier Bourke, Cecil
Bourke, H. H. Sewell Wm. Brlndle,
agent for S. S. Fra,ser, H. Smellie, and
others, numbering in all about 18. C.
W. Busk and J. W. Ford, while not
wholly endorsing the complaint, ask
for investigation.
So far, it ls learned, a great deal of
road building has been done at their
own expense by Messrs. Busk, Gray
and Strank, and Mr. Busk has done all
the necessary surveying gratis. Mr.
McKay has supplied all tools and kept
them In repair.
Commissioner Renwlck has decided
that J. D. Moore, government road
agent, shall investigate Ihe matter
fully and report, a decision with which
the petitioners express entire satisfaction. They prefer n little delay to
having a permanent road In the wrong
place, and disclaim any motive olher
thnn the general good.

Sad Death of Irving Home
This Morning
���? *
i i
Accident Probably Dae to Slipping
of life Preserver���Efforts to
Restore Wat Vain.
The saddest accident that has occurred in Nelson for a long time happened on the north shore just opposite the city thlB morning about 10
o'clock, when Irving, the 10-year-old
sun of Mr. and Mrs. J. Fred Hume,
was drowned within a few yards of his
The children, four in number, hare
been allowed to play on the beach and
bathe near the shore, with many Injunctions to keep within safe distance.
Irving was allowed ln alightly deeper
water than the others, but alwaya wore
a life preserver.
This- morning after breakfast the
children adjourned as usual to the
beach. Exactly what happened is unknown. It ls probable, as happened
as late as yesterday, bat In shallow
water, that Irvlng's life preserver came
loose and fell to his feet.
The children were shouting at their
play, and when their shouts became
cries of alarm, they did not at first attract any notice.
Then one of the little girls ran for
help, and first found Andrew Halkett,
C. P. R. conductor, who ls camping on
the shore. As soon as he gathered
what had Lappened, Ur. Halkett na
to. the shorf and |ri<UK4J-k..tat_.M_i
their confusion, the children directed
him to the wrong end of the float, and
his diving waa without result
Mr. Hume, who was at work behind
his cottage, saw Mr. Halkett diving,
and instinctively guessed the occasion.
He joined him at once, and together
they searched the shore. In a few
minutes Mr. Halkett located the
child's body and brought It to the
shore. Leaving the father to work at
resuscitation, he paddled at once to
the city boat houses and telephoned
for Dr. Hall. The doctor responded at
once, and was taken over in A. L.
Lindsay's launch.
Every effort to revive the child had
already been made by Mr. Hume himself. The hopeless task was continued for an hour and a half longer under Dr. Hall's directions, but life was
already extinct and all efforts failed to
produce the faintest sign.
The body was brought to the city
later by Mr. Hume.
The other children, whose ages are
between 3 and 7, could not say how
long Irving had beeil under water before Mr. Halkett arrived. When found
he lay on his back on the bottom motionless.
Arrangements will be made for the
funeral later.
Mr. and Mrs. Hume have the heartfelt sympathy of the community ln
their sad bereavement. Irving was
their eldest child, and a bright, courteous, manly little fellow, a favorite
with all who knew him.

There is nn ancient adage which,
being translau-tl. is to the effect thai
people who live in glass hovis.'S should
not throw stones. The adage has
timely application in the case of Nelson's moriUng paper, which was yesterday guilty of a pretty exhibition of
political ignorance or a deliberate pur.
post* to misrepresent facts for political
ends. It charges the Mai! Empire of
Toronto with a whole catalogue of curious political crimes, and takes so
dignified u stand on the question of
political editorials that we mny be
pardoned for calling the attention of
our readers to a subject in which they
might not under other circumstances
be interested.
The controversy is over recent decisions in cases of election protests
In Nova Scotia, aud the Mail speaks
sarcastically of the political corruption that is apparently  rampant there.
Here Is how the local organ Of the
opposition pays its respects to the
Mail, nnd also how it treats well-
known facts Of political history, it
-Tlie Toronto lory organ has not an
equal for casuistry or hitter invective
It has a select list of pet phrases
which includes every unpleasant adjective aud damnatory noun known to
the English language, and its political
terminology is fearfully reminiscent of
the recent American stockyard scandal   disclosures."
And further on it continues:
"The Daily News desires to present
briefly these salient facts; The law
of the land contains a provision, well
known to every person in political life.
to the effect that an election protest
must be filed within a certain time.
That time the Conservatives, either
purposely or bj mistake, allowed to
elapse before they entered their action; and on these grounds, and these
grounds nlone. the courts refused to
hear the appeal Allowing Mr. Harden and his colleagues full credit for
nt least average conversance with the
statute book, and taking Into sccoun!
their undoubted Bhrewdness in polltl
cal luetics, it is nulling more than
fair to surmise that the specified time
limit was purposely allow oil to pass,
und that nfter it was obviously too
late the action was commenced so that
the Opposition leader OOUld POSC be
fore lhe country as one to- whom jus
lice had been dented by the .ourts.
"We are sorry to believe this of Mr
We should bo very sorry to "believe
this of Mr, Horden ourselves," hut as
lhe News has such n sudden tit of pious and sanctified sorrow for Mr. Gordon's course tn this matter, we shnll
administer hnsty relief to its aggrieved sensibilities by telling it that
what it slates Is not true Of Mr. Horden.
Tho petition tn question wns filed
In ample time, but there is a provision
In the law under which the date of
trial of an election petition must fall
within a certain time limit after the
filing of the protest The trial judge
who fixed the date placed It three
days too late to meet the legal conditions,   with   Ihe  result   thnt   Mr.   Bor
den was absolutely helpless, and when
he appeared to press the case before
the courts he was told by tho trial
judge, the brother judge concurring,
that the date of the trial placed the
case outside ihe jurisdiction of Uie
courts. Thus was Mr. Borden pre
vented from securing justice, nnd it
was for these reasons, and not for
those stated in the morning paper,
that  Mr.  Borden's appeal  was refused.
An eastern paper, commenting on
the  case, says:
"Judge Russell, of Nova Scotia, was
a supporter of Laurier when in the
commons, and received his Appoint-
meat to the bench at the close of the
last parliament. This eminent jurist
postponed the trial Of the corruptly-
elected politicians who hold the Halifax seats that should belong to Mr.
Horden and his colleague until July
17th. When the case opened on July
17th the same judge ruled that the
trial ought to have commenced on
July 14th, As his lordship had allowed the trial to be delayed for three
days 'oo long, the corruptly elected
members were confirmed in the seats
to which they had not been properly
While we make no comment on the
action of the judges In question, both
Of whom were appointed by the Liberal government, we are both pained
and humiliated that, for no apparently
honest reason, s Liberal paper in the
far west, at such great distance from
the scene of action, where the voters
would be unfamiliar with the facts,
should resort to such political sophistry, if not something Badly worse. The
only possible explanation of such politically coarse conduct must lie in the
thought that the News hoped it would
be able io slip its select fallacy into
the public mind catted and gellatined
so that it would be unsuspected, and
the political virus It contains do its
work In the body politic when it would
be too late to recall the administration of the decoction. Any other explanation, such as that the editor was
ignorant of the facts, is inadmissible,
for the reason that an editor who essays such heavy subjects should have
some suspicion of what he is writing
To read the lofty scorn with which
the morning paper refers to the political sophistry of the Mall and Empire,
while in the same columns it is guilty
of much worse misstatement of the
facts, is like the pot calling the kettle
black. It retuinds one of the attempted cleverness of Marie CorelU, who.
In one of her books, points out ihe serious offence apiinst public morals
committed by a certain school ot
writers, aud who in the whole story
which has this complaint for Its moral succeeds In weaving a plot full ol
BUggestive situations thai out-Herod
Herod Still we do not wish to place
the News and Gorelti in the same
class.    That would be sophistry.
"Times of commotion." said Governor Penny packer of Pennsylvania in n
recent proclamation, "furnish the test
of the capacity of the people for self-
government. Every man is entitled to
labor and get for his labor lhe highest
compensation he can lawfully secure
There is no law to compel him to labor unless he so chooses, and he may
cease to labor whenever he considers
it to-be to his Interest so to cease. The
laboring man. out of whose efforts
wealth arises, has the sympathy of all
disinterested people in his lawful
Struggles to secure a larger proportioa
of the profit which results from his
labor. What he earns belongs to him.
and if he Invests his earnings the law
protects his property just as the rights
ot property  of all  men  must   be  pro
tected. He has no right to interfere
with another man who mny want to
labor. Violence has no place among
us, and will not be tolerated. Let nil
men in quietness and soberness keep
the peace and uttend to their affairs,
with the knowledge that it is the purpose of the commonwealth to see thai
the principles herein outlined are enforced."
Dr, Qoldwln Smith declares that he
is not an annexationist, bul a unionist, i. v., he favors "free, equal and
honorable union." Ten years ago,
says the Ottawa Cltlsen, be would nol
have denied thai he was an annexationist; now tlie charge makes hint appear ridiculous, and demands denial.
The qualification of the philosopher of
the Grange is merely a sign Of the
limes. In the days when he and other
faithless pessimists were advocating
annexation, Canada was poor and
struggling, and a minority ot weaklings saw her only salvation in deserting her heritage and slinking under
the wing of the United States. Now
Canada is becoming rich and prosperous nnd fulfilling the destiny thnt every steadfast, stout-hearted Canadian
was confident would be hers. Even
the aged professor realizes the light
in which history will regard the role
of the men who attempted to betray
this country Into annexation in 1891.
Perhaps better late than never is his
recantation, but it would be more
straightforward to confess his mistake
than  to fawningly juggle  with  wotds.
The sympathy of the entire community will be tendered to Mr. and Mrs.
J. Fred Hume and their family in tin-
sad bereavement suffered through the
drowning of their eldest son this morning. The Canadian, in common with
all classes, joins in tendering its condolences to the afflicted home.

Sir Auckland Colvin Ih the British
comptroller-general in Egypt, aod is
also the khedive'a financial advisor.
From such a dual poin tof vantage Sir
Auckland is well fined to judge of actual conditions; a reading of his "Making of Modern Egypt," however, shows;
that he is also fitted to interpret the
COUTBQ of Egyptian events in general
during the past twonty years, and in
the department of finance iu particular. In that period, as influenced by
England, of course the central figure
lias   lieen   I���rd   Cromer.     But  at   tho
beginning of the period   the central
figure  was  Lord    Dufterln.    England
has indeed been fortunate in having
such pro-consuls. We are not surprised to find Sir Auckland a sturdy
advocate and expounder of British
rule in Egypt. Not only is he as convinced us we are of the goodness of
thut rule; he Is equally convinced of
the unfitness of the Egyptians, unaided, to rule themselves. First of all,
there is Mohammedanism in the wny.
Whether it be regarded as u scheme
of religion, us a social life, or as a Bye-
tern of government and polity, it does
not favor the sustained and continuous progress of the nation following it,
But, Islam aside, where will one find
among 'Egyptians, inquires our author,
tho necessary sense of corporate
needs, the common and collective pur-,
pose, the civic virtues, the social energies, without which no real progress
can be made? There is no native power, he avers, which could maintain, far
less continue, the work of reform for
a twelvemonth If the controlling British hand were removed. It must bo
admitted that Sir Auckland makes out
a good case for Great Britain tn his
review of recent Egyptian history, beginning with the institution of dual
control in 1876, and chronicling the
military revolt, the rise of the vexed
Sudan question, (leneral Cordon's career us envoy to the Sudan, the retirement of the British troops from that
vast region south of Egypt, Lord Cromer's policy for both Egypt and the
Sudan, the end of Dervish rule at
Khartum, and, finally, the Anglo-
French agreement, which ended u
quarter century's chapter of complicated International relations. The recent recrudescence of Muslim lannti-
cism in Egypt, the Sinaitic peninsula,
and the Sudan, and tbe readiness of
the Anglo-Egyptians to meet it, makes
a review of the situation Interesting
at the present time.

have found out what they want, and
seem to be willing to pay for it.
Great time In Rossland. Spoke
there four times; once to the Italian
local, at their building, being introduced by Joe Callister. No one seamed to have been aware of the existence of such an institution. They
nave a line, vigorous organization, and
ure true-hearted comrades. I was a_
tonlslied at thu "number of Socialists
I found in Uosulund, which has always
been supposed lo be the stronghold of
Liberal capitalist politics in this province. Mucdonald made a pitiable exhibition of himself on the platform,
some of our Socialist comrades even
feeling sorry for him. It is needless
to say I didn't.
He was to have met me on the platform and discuss the burning question
of the  day���Capitalism   vs.  Socialism.
He was in Lhe meeting, and the audience forced him on thv platform, but
to the disappointment of friends und
foes alike, he refused to speak, and
followed his usual tacticB���that is, did
a sneak.
He met me the next night and discussed provincial politics, as these
ducks are sometimes willing to do, because it Is fairly safe ground for them,
being easier to conceal the real issue.
But I venture to say that Macdonald
would have given a good deal to have
escaped even that little ordeal. Unless both wings combine to support
him, he cannot be again elected in
Rossland.   The town is ours for keeps.
I speak here tonight, and spoke In
Grand Forks last night. The comrades
there will at once organize. This
rami) will come into line, too. Socialism Is rampant here.
