Editor Delta Times :
Sir���I would like to know what
the Council intends doing with the
Truuk road, between P. Clark's
and tbe wharf. As it is it is a disgrace to" any community. Alter
hauling a load of cordwood fire
miles I got stuck right in tbe
village. It is certainly up to the
Council to do something to remedy
[It is the mention ofthe Council
to rock this piece of road tliis year.
Alex. Davie shipped to Vancouver, on Wednesday last, _ pair ot
very fine Clydesdales,
ton, Ottawa, South Huron. In
Qudbec, three; Nicolet, L. Belle,
Stanstead. The government candidate was returned in each case, and
in Pouth Huron the Liberals gained the seat���a Conservative having
formerly occupied it.
How the People Decide.
Tbere is a reason (or this, and
the reason is not hard to find. Two
considerations mainly are before
the people���The first is���Is the record ot" the Liberal administration
such as to entitle the government
to continued confidence? The second���Who are the men who would
be placed in power, should the Liberals be defeated, and what is their
As to the first, tbe record of the
Liberal government since 1896 is
writ large in history. Consider the
conditions in Canada in 1896
after eighteen years of Conservative rule, aud compare them with
the conditions to-day, after eleven
years ot Liberal rule. Examine into the work of every department of
the government, making no excep
tions, and il will be fouud that giant
strides in progress bave been made
Examine into the regulations now
in force with respect to the great as
sets of the people, timber, coal and
h��nds�� and it will be lound that under
Conservative rule the property ofthe
people was not administered in their
interest or for their benefit, but for
tbe enrichment of the party-heelei
and tbe men iu power.
How the Tories Ruled.
Timber limits by the thousand
-miles were divided among the poli
ticans and their hangerson, with
out price or consideration, excepting only generous contributions for
campaign purposes, to keep in
power the unprincipled men who
^rcw rich at the public expense.
The lands of the people were
handed over to corporations by
millions of acres at a time, without
a s' ver going into tbe public treasury.
Money was borrowed by the
million (nearly one hundred millions altogether) to provide the
means to prosecute public works,
which might have been constructed witb money realized by the
sale ot lands, and tbe people were
burdened with taxation to pay interest on accumulating public debts.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars
were divided with contractors who
were given inquitous jobs at high
prices upon the understanding that
they gave back part of tbe loot to
enrich the swelling corruption fund.
There existed in the country for
years under Conservative rule, a
.-aturnalia of thievery during which
ministers of the crown, 1 oliticaus,
contrac'ors. and rascals ot every
description accumulated riches and
tbe people became poorer.
La. e contracts involving vast
sums oi money were given to the
Highest tender instead ol the lowest. The money was borrowed, it
came easy and went easier, but the
campaign fund grew apace.
What Changes Liberals Made.
The Liberal government made
the sale of timber competitive, and
the proceeds went into the treasury.
No lands were given to railway
corporation!!, but tbe proceeds of

Donald MacKenzie (Sapperton), J.
D. Gillara (North Vancouver) and
Elder J. J. G. Thompson.

Contracts were given to the lowest tenderer and the interests of the
people were safeguarded at all
Trade increased ten fold, revenue
resulted from a revised tariff, public
works were constructed from surpluses gained by careful regard to
expenditure ��� improvements made
in transportation prevoked trade,
waterways were increased and enlarged, harbors deepened and business increased on every hand as
the result of wise laws. The western provinces were peopled by settlers and land increased in value
and trade between the east and
west grew until it reached its present proportions.
Promises made to the people by
the Literals have been faithfully
kept and the prosperous condition
of affairs existing to-day, compared
to the previous conditions of 1S96
are the incontrovertible evidences
of intelligent administration.
The people are asked to ignore
these facts and baud over the government to Conservatives ot unsavory record. The recent bye-
elections indicate that nothing of
the kind will be done.

We would suggest to the Coun
cil that a constable be appointed by
the year and" tbat he. be specially
requested to attend all shows and
entertainments held in the Town
Hall in order to prevent persons at-
taading making a show of themselves by producing bottles of liquor
aad drinking therefrom in said hall
much to the detriment of the morals
���f the young. It is bad enough to
have to tolerate the curse in our
licensed houses without having it
flaunted around everywhere.
During the past two weeks no
���less than three undesirables from
the cities of Vancouver or New
'Westminster have endeavored to
-locate in the immediate vicinity of
.Ladner���one French, one Japanese
and one British. By strict vigilance each and every one have
beea kept moving.
Now this is a matter which ought
,to arouse the municipal authorities
.to action, not for them to wait until a complaint is sent in. Put the
machinery to work to see that this
class of resident is not permitted to
enter the district, which is much
easier than to root them out after
once becoming established.
The cities are cleaning out the
jed light districts, and there is no
reason whatever for this district becoming polluted thereby.
With the advent of these women,
drunkenness, debauchery, murder,
,$uicide, holdups, gambling and
%uch like quickly follow in their
We believe that we voice the
sentiments of the great majority of
our people when we say: "We positively will not allow this curse to
become implanted in our midst."
Who! tlie Mr��ss toys.
Gifted bv Nature with a com
mantling personality, a musical
voice, an exceptional elocutionary
ability, Miss Ada L. A. Murcutt,
of London, Fs:!low of Royal Scottish Geographical Society, who is
delivering a course ot popular lecture in Dunoon this week, is eminently fitted for the task, and after
hearing her speak one does not
wonder that wherever she goes
she is enthusiastically received by
thousands of the populace. Miss
Murcutt is an Australian by birth,
but has lived for some years in
America, and has a world-wide
reputation as a lecturer, traveller
and writer. She is, indeed, a remarkable woman, having come
through experiences quite unique
in their way, and undergone hardships which verv few women have
ever had the temerity to face. She
has travelled four times round the
world, and has left the "beaten
track" and explored regions where
no other white woman has been,
facing innutnerabl: perils and dangers. As a result of over ten years
of travel and observation in almost
every country iu the world, Miss
Murcutt has collected a fund of
information and experience which
provokes the closest interest, and
awakens the public conscience lo
the existing evils of the day. She
has a style peculiaily her own.
Possessed of a clear, penetrating
voice, the large audiences which
she addresses have no difficulty in
following her story, while her great
fluency and descriptive powers at
once captivate her hearers, holding
them spellbound from the time she
rises to speak -until she resumes her
seat. One never tires of listening
to her, which is partly accounted
for by the fact that she has the
saving grace of being able to see
the humorous side of things, while
as she warms to her subject in her
peroration oi,e cannot but be compelled to admite her for her earnestness, sincerity and wisdom, which
rank her among the most able and
powerful women who have ever
graced the platform. Miss Murcutt did most of ber travelling as
the representative of a literary syndicate and various social oiganiza-
tions, and for this reason she had
privileges which are denied to ordinary travellers.���Dunoon Advertiser.
