There were too ma.i.v miles of railways ou paper ln British Columbia, and
it was his policy to have tlie real thing
or nothing.
The premier gave the whole history
of the Columbia tt Western land grant,
allowing how a termor government of
which Mr. Deane waa an ardent supporter, and of which Fred Hume and
ex-Judge Henderson were members,
was willing to extend the grant to Midway, while the present government had
allowed a land grant for construction

Coniervative   Rally    Last   Night   Wall
Attended and Enthusiastic Candidate   Confident.
If the spirit of party Is to be judged,
not by noisy aud silly Interruptions at
opponents meetings, but by regular attendance an dwilllngness to work at all
rooms, then the spirit of the Conservatives of Nelson is all that any leader or
canlddate can desire. The rooms are
filled nightly with efficient workers arranging details of canvassing aud of
the locating of voters
A rally was called for last night at
a few hours' notice and the response
was a full house. President Lennie
congratulated the party ou the entirely
satisfactory progress of the campaign
In Nelson and throughout the province.
The candidate. Jack Kirkpatrick, assured his hearers that the reBults of
his personal canvass had surpassed his
expectations, and that any doubt he ha��
ever entertained as to the lsBue of the
campaign waB now  entirely dispelled.
Short campaign speeches were made
by R. M. Macdonald, W. A. Macdonald,
D. M. Macdonald, J. A. Irving and R. J.
Clark. The chairman then closed with
a stirring appeal to all to relax no effort to pile up a big majority.
Another rally was announced for
Monday night, aod tbe meeting ad-

Coal  Famine Cripples Industry in the
Boundary District.
Grand Forkfi, Jan. 17��� The failure
nf the Qreat Northern and C. P. K. railways In hauling coke to tlie Granby
Binelter Ib rejiorted today to be the
Bole cause for the closing down of llie
smelter. It Ib claimed that ever since
the Fernie coal strike the railways
have been short of coal for the engines, and consequently now, while
there Ib auy quantity of coke waiting
Tor shipment, the railways caiinol provide sufficient power for the engines
to haul the heavy coke trains over the
steep mountain grades. The condition
of affairs at Grand Forks Iibb now
reached an acute stage, as over 300
meu are thrown out of employment
una* another BOO at tlle Phoenix mines
will also be Idle. Added to this there
will he a Iosb to the Granby smeller
ln cold cash of several hundred dollars
per day for every day the big plant Is
idle. It Is also Intimated tliat all the
ingenuity of Superintendent A. B. W.
Hodges has been completely baffled In
this matter of the coke supply as lt Is
simply up to the railways to haul the
coke, which they are unable to do until a proper amount of fuel Is supplied
for their engines. The failure of power for want or coal for the engines has
now opened up another field for discussion here, namely, that of operating the railways by electrical power
entirely, and thus abandoning any system of fuel that can be controlled by
any contingency whatever. Until electrical power Ib used ou the railway!
or an unlimited supply of coal Is provided Ior their consumption no permanent Improvement In the coke supply
during Ihe winter months can be expected in this district.

Kingston  Almost   Wiped   Out���Casualties Will  Exceed a Thousand.
London, Jan, 17.���Kingston has been
wiped out, the damaged area comprising a square mile. All the large warehouses In the lower part of the city
were consumed, while not a single
lii.use remained undamaged and the
majority were unlit for habitation
when the despatch was filed. The bodies of many whites, who had been stay
ing In the Myrtle Bank Hotel, were
still beneath the wreck, as It was Impossible to secure workmen to search
the debrlB. A conservative estimate
of the casualties, made by the police
of Kingston, places the number ot
killed at 1200.' Judging from tbe number of bodies found ln tha few buildings which have been examined, the
correspondent adds, Is likely to be
largely increased when a thorough
search is made of the buildings.
Holland Bay, Jan. 17.���Advices received from various parts of the Island
show that- Kingston was the only place
damaged by the recent earthquake. All
Lhe other towns of Jamaica are ln good
condition. No further earthquake
shocks have been felt in Jamaica.
London, Jan. 17.���Noon���Much surprise and anxiety is felt at the Colonial
office at the absence of any further
news from the governor of Jamaica.
An urgent despatch calling on him to
report the latest details was still unanswered this morning.
During the early hours of the morning the West Indian and Panama Cable
company received a despatch from its
superintendent at St. Thomas announcing tbat the situation at Kingston was
terrible and that famine waa Imminent.
The superintendent adds that the company's Bteamer Henry Holmes has left
St. Thomas for Kingston wltb provisions and doctors to render the suffer*
ers necessary assistance. Reports
from Austria and Switzerland show that
seismatic disturbances occurred there
on Monday afternoon at about the same
corresponding time as ln Jamaica, indicating widespread unrest of the
eurth's crust..
New York, Jan. 17.���Definite advices
as to the extent of the disaster at Kingston. Jamaica, were still lacking early
today. Conflicting reports received Indicated that Uie death list might be
anywhere from 100 to 1000. One despatch reported that 310 bodies bad
been recovered  and burled.
According to the latest advices, the
city was not all destroyed, but nearly
every building sustained some damage
Practically the entire business section,
owever, was ruined. When the first

the debris. Of these some were killed
but the greater number were Injured
and these latter were rescued. The
first shock was followed by lighten
tremors, and then fire started in the
ruins along the water front. The
flames spread rapidly, aB the water
pipes having been broken, there waB
nothing with which to fight the flames
A strong wind was blowing and this
helped to spread the flames. The fire
raged until early Tuesday morning,
when the wind changed and Uie fire
burned itself out. All the buildings
along Duke, Port Royal. King and East
streets were wiped out.

Rossland Meeting Wholly
Another Liberal Campaign Method
Exposed���Dally Hews Report
Utterly Untrue.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Cascade, Jan. 17.���E. Miller, Conservative candidate for Grand Forks, who
addressed and captured a splendid
meeting here last night, was, with a
strong delegation of local supporters,
on the platform when the regular train
from Nelson on which Hon. Richard
McBride was a passenger, arrived this
The premier called attention to a
telegraphic report of the Rossland
meeting which appeared in the Nelson
News, and in which it was Bald that he
Intimated that the men who advocated
the eight hour law were largely of the
type of kid glove loafers and hangers-
on of Liberal campaign committees,
and characterised lt as wilfully false.
He Bald he discussed the eight hour
law at length, and left nothing unsaid
that would give cause for doubt as to
his attitude in favor of it. While he
waB thus engaged, three or four men
who were standing ln different places
against the wall near the entrance to
the hall, systematically interrupted him
with remarks that had no,bearing on
the question. He spoke directly to
these disturbers, saying he did not believe they were working men; that
their hands would likely show they had
been unused to labor, aud that they
HSOt ttls__*l��8S_ of hangers-on to be
mittee rooms. He challenged these men
to come forward, aud after that the In-
terrupUons ceased.
Votes Thrown Away.
While one may applaud the courage
of the Socialists in undertaking to contest practically every constituency ln
the province, lt ls rather unfortunate
Uia: bo many men should voluntarily
disfranchise themselves, as the Socialists will virtually do in constituencies
like Mel son, where they have no chance
of sjiclss. In voUug for the Socialist candidate they lose their opportunity of voicing a preference for either
of the other candidates, and Uie election is therefore not Influenced by
their voles, nor ls the majority.

Society, and widely known In amateur

thousands of dollars, McGee was held
In the highest esteem aud was looked
upon as a model of genUltty and hon
esty. It appears that the missing
funds went largely Into stock market
gambling, which he has been carrying
on for a long period and with the utmost secrecy. The building society of
which he was ecretary Ib a large concern and will be sucb a heavy loser that
it ls doubtful if It can recover. When

fesion. He was honorary secretary of

Macdonald and his followers never
wavered in (heir mischievous policy of
cynical fault-finding and flagrantly
partizan obstruction, Now, having utterly failed to perform the minor duties of an opposition, Ihey have the effrontery to ask that ihey he entrusted
with control of the province! The reply of British Columbia will be emphatic: "No, unprofitable servants, you
have been faithless In little things,
you shall never be entrusted wiih
greater things."

Not only from thy beginning of tshe
campaign, but from the very beginning
of their career as an organized opposition, the Liberal parly of British Columbia has never yel produced oho
idea as to constructive policy, or ..no
helpful suggestion lor the Improvement of measures Introduced by tin'
government They have all been com
tent, from Ihe leader down, to "sll in
the seat of lhe scornful," Iimi fault
with everything done, or, when that
was impossible, with tbe manner in
which It was doiife. The rank and file
have always followed llle example set
by iheir leader witli the "great analyt
leal mind.*' Analysis, which means
literally breaking up, Is the onl} faculty they seek iss cultivate, oi construction or building up they have absolutely no Ideas Al the very outset,
when ilie first duty of ihe government
was lo set i.. work to straighten mil
the financial tangle, without which no
cheque could be issued by lhe govern-
ment even for lhe payment ol rural
teachers ami provincial constables,
when a failure lo set lhe finances In
order would have Involved llie closing
or schools, and of every branch of the
public service���even in lhal crisis the,
leader of the opposition hail nothing lo
offer bul carping criticism us to tlie
rale of interest lo be imi.l on the emergency loan. The stand then taken has
never varied. Whether the business
In hand was an Acl tu hand over to
the municipalities oontrb l of, ami
some financial responsibility for, i.heli��
schools���a measure urged in (.very annual reporl I.y two siiperinieiideiils of
education for over ten years���whether
it was tlie meeting of old obligations.
Jack Kirkpatrick in his personal canvass of lhe electors of Nelson Is meeting with a response tliat at first amazed hlm. Jack's most characteristic
Quality Is his modesty. He was not
prepared to tell any voter what Qualifications lie had for a legislator. He
knew that he would not have to protest his honesty. The dozen years lie
has spent in Nelson have been long
enough to convince every one of Jils
fellow citizens tliat there was never a
suspicion ut' a corrupt motive In *iny
act of his whole career. Moreover, the
QUlet and useful work performed by
him in the city council with little applause and apparently lit tic recognition from aflyone, and never referred
to by himself, have not been lost upon
Up. electors. They know that Jack
Klrkpatrlok, ihougli he makes uo pre-
tenalons to oratory, and Is always
willing lhal oihers should have all
credit, is a man of Intelligence and
ability, and of incorruptible honesty.
Ills business experience will make him
an Invaluable member of committees,
where declamation is neither required
nor desired.
In spile of our well and kindly Intended reminders, and even of our timid suggestions as to the method, we
cannot induce our esteemed contemporary to say a good word for Dr. Hall.
This is really distressing. Wo hale
to see him so coldly Ignored and dismissed. We therefore undertake his
pralso. Ur. Hall Is a kindly and courteous gentleman, an Industrious, faithful, successful and deservedly popular
physician, a good rriend of every clean
and manly sport, and rightly insistent
that all apon shall be clean and manly:   a   public-spirited   and   progressive

citizen, as proved by his self-sacrificing service in the city council and on
the board of school trustees, ln fact,
we have only oue fault to find with
the doctor���his political predilections,
and tliey are probably a mere accident
of birth. We are so lost In* sincere admiration of the doctor's many and undoubted guod qualities that we lore-
bear further mention of his only other
weakness���his inability to tell a funny
story on the platform.
The eight-hour law for metalliferous
mines Is in the statute books of British
Columbia and likely to remain there.
Without legislative enactment, by
agreement among employers aud employees, eight hours is now generally
recognized as a working day iu smellers. Neither is a live issue in the
present campaign. The views of the
majority of the working men, uot ouly
of the few of them who have adopted
fhe Socialist heresy, were not Inaptly
expressed by Frank Phillips when be
said on the platform: "We respect the
man, the ._Cp_a.<_"��liv_*��� ^.Rll1S,,_,*v*9
despise J. A. Macdonald, who kept
hedging aud trying to curry favor with
both sides." The smelter employees
are not fools: they recognize the difference between principle and opportunism.
Political prophecy is a harmless
amusement. V. W. Odium, assistant
editor of The Dally News, informed a
member of the staff of that paper last
night that lhe Liberals would make almost a clean sweep of tbe coast and
hold their own ln the interior. But
such predictions bave no interest at all
unless ihey are absolutely frank. Even
Mr. Odium, in conversation last night,
concedes the loss of one seat in Victoria, and probably one In Cowicban.
He concedes the loss in the interior
of o ne of the Cariboos, Yale and Columbia. Reminded that the resultant
net gain claimed by himself would not
give a Libera] majority, Mr. Odium retorted: "No,_ but it would be very disastrous for you." It would, and for
British Columbia. But thc value of
Mr. Odium's judgment is sadly depreciated by his expression of opinion that
the premier is endangered iu Dewdney.
As a metter of fact, tlie candidature
of Bob Jardlne Is regarded by Liberals as well as Conservatives ae ;.
mere piece of impudence.
What conception can Sir Wilfrid
Laurier have formed of the Intelligence
and respectability of British Columbia
Liberals, when the guldeB and leaders
he has chosen and appointed for Ihem
are Ralph Smith, W. Slonn and Willie
Mclnnes? J. A. Macdonald is undoubtedly a helpless failure, but he ls a respectable failure.
After their disastrous campaign in
Alberni against William Manson It
might have boen expected that Ralph
Smith and W. Sloan would refrain
from further interference in the provincial politics of llrltlsh Columbia, but
orders are orders, and great ls the machine.
F. C. Wade, K. C, of Vancouver, a
leader of the bar���and a Libera] candidate, hae "taken the Initiative In
urging upon the Dominion government
the necessity of an appellate court for
British Columbia. What price? And
what good Liberal needs the job most?
Knowledge of law and repute as a
practitioner have never been Consider,
allons with the Laurler government.
Our office poet, being an ardent ad-
admirer of the great ami only Mclnnes, has courted the muse with tho
following  result:    Billy   (loqulter):
"I'm a legal light, a governor, reformer to the core,
Tory, Grit, and Socialist: what would
you have  me more?
I'm anything and everything, be it
what it may,
I'm ready to oblige you. If the thing
at all wil] pay."
We do  not  attempt an npology for
the poetry,     lt   Is  execrable,  but the
sentiment is  in  keeping with  the career of Weary  Willie.

session of the legislature the W. K. P.
ft L. Co. applied for an amendment to
their charter so as to enable them to
supply power and light In the Yale district This application was defeated
through the intervention of the Cascade
Water Power Co., which company alleged that lt had vested Interests
amounting to a monoply ln Yale district. Shortly after the closing ef the
last session of the legislature the West
Kootenay company entered Into negotiations for the purchase of the
rights of the South Kootenay Water
POwer company, which was incorporated ln 1897 by Lionel H. Webber, al
that time of Rossland, and some others.
These negotiations havo lately been
brought to a successful conclusion. The
West Kootenay company now controls
the South Kootenay company. They
sell to the South Kootenay company
Buch power as Is necessary for mines
and smelters In the Yale district.
Tbe powers of the South Kootenay
company are most comprehensive aud
will enable that company to supply
power wherever lt may be desired ln
the Yale district
Much credit ls due to L. A. Campbell,
general manager of the West Kootenay
Power & Light company, for thus
bringing about a condition under which
mine and smelter owners ln tho Yale
district can now rest assured of a permanent and economical supply of

The practice followed by many
householders of dumping ashes in the
lanes and alleys is assuming the proportions of a public nuisance. In some
cases it has gone so far that delivery
sleighs, especially those laden with
coal or wood, cannot traverse the
lanes. The practice is contrary to the
provisions of a city by-law passed in
December, 1906, and Chief Jarvis has
instructions to enforce the by-law, and
summons offenders against it without
further notice.
