Address by Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper Under the Auspices
of the North Vancouver Conservative Association.
The Conservatives here turned
out iu (ull force to listen to Sir
Charlee Hibbert Tupper on "Political Issues of the Day." Msny
also from Vancouver availed themselves ol the opportunity to heat
whst Ihe member-to-be for Pictou
had to say regarding the motnen-
tuoiii questions concerning the
Dominion ss s whole, snd British
Coluiuhia in particular.
Mr. A. K. Steacy, president of
the locsl Conservative Association,
presided, and besides him on tha
platform were Messrs. W. C.
Glsdwyn and C. Wentwarth Sarel.
Mr. Steacy, in a few well chosen
words, called the meeting te order,
and proc-eded forthwith to introduce the speaker af the evening,
stating thst he did not wish to
tske up the time of the audience
which had gsthered to hear Sit;
Charles Hibbert Tupper.
Oa rising, Sir Chsrles was met
with loud aad prolonged applause.
He slated that the subject he wu
about to deal with wai embarass-
ing because oi the infinite number
of questions which might be
called important as political issues
of the day. He was pleased with
the large number that had turned
out at this aseeting to hear him,
especially the noticeable number
•I ladies.
Sir Charles announced that he
would deal particularly with the
political issues which were within
the grssp ef his hearers.
No matter what might be thought
of the Provincial Government,
no opportunity would be afforded
voters to pronounce upon these
issues for severs! years, while with
reference to the Dominion situation, an opportunity (or the expression oi approval or disapproval of the conduct oi thai government would occur with a few
months. The squsndering ot
public (unds snd other corrupt
acts oi the Dominion Government
would come in ior criticism from
the Atlantic to the Pacific before
the next Federal elections.
Speaking oi the corrupt practices Sir Chsrles said that the only
defence of the Ottawa Government
for its action waa the tu quoque
argument and the plea that Conservative governments bad been
quite as corrupt aa itself. The
query was not, did the Tories do
right, but have Ihe Liberals done
right ? The blunders of the Ottawa government, rather than its
crimes, would not be tbe substance
of his remsrks. He dealt exhaustively with thf attitude of the
Conservative government when it
was in power, and showed how
Sir John A. Macdonald had
claimed for the people of Canada
the right to negotiate its own immigration laws with foreign
countries. Under the Conservative Regime Canada had claimed
absolute right to regulate ita im
migration aflaira and while that
party was in power the right had
been exercised and had never
been disputed. Sir John A. Mac
donald had been able to maintain
Canada's supremacy in the matter
of immigration, and he challenged
anyone to aay that Sir John A,
Macdomld'l arrangements had
not been satisfsctory to Canada or
to foreign powers.
QThe Liberals had claimed a
heaven-born genius to negotiate a
treaty for  reciprocity with the
United States, and Mr. Fisher,
when he was in the cabinet, had
staled that what Canada needed
was reciprocity with the United
States. The result of Mr. Fisher's
argument had been a trip to
Washington, costing the country
l34,ooo, including sn item of
fin 35 for sosp.
" It will take a good deal more
than tbst money value in sosp to
wssh the linen of these people in
Connection with thst matter," said
Sir Charles, his remarks being
greeted with loud applause.
Touching on the Alasks bound-
sry question, which Sir Charles
was so intimately acquainted with,
ha said that two out of three of
the arbitrators chosen by Canada
had previously given expression
to opinions directly, at variance
with Canada's interests and that
they were previously committed to
a deciaion adverse to the Dominion. Canada had insisted upon
the appointment of Lord Alver-
stone upon thst commission, and
the only man who could stand out
against an adverse decision were
M. Jetle and Mr. Aylesworth. In
this connection Sir Wilfred Laurier
had stated that from time immemorial Dyea and Skagway had
had bra the possession of Russia,
and that the property in these
placae had paaaed to the United
States when that nation bought
the Alukan frontier, and when
the United States case hsd been
plsced before the arbitration board
every word of Sir Wilfrid had been
quoted againat Canada's contention.
"It wu nol the bungling of a
British diplomat which had done
ua the wrong, but the utterances
of the Prime Minister of Canada."
Tho speaker recalled the pledge
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier prior to the
1895 election, with regnrd to the
trade relations with England, and
his promise to send a delegation
to England to advocate a preferential tariff and his subfequent
putting sway of all proposals (or a
preferential tariff and of every
principle upon which such a pro-
posal could succeed.
The recent immigration arrangements with Jspan were full of
errors, blunders and wrong concessions, said Sir Charles. He
was spesking from the point of
view of s citizen of Csnada, and
while he had no privilege of suggestion, he put forwsrd the argu*
ment that a great transcontinental
railroad company enamored the
government to an indecent extent
thai one of the cabinet ministers
had left the ranks. The cost of
labor involved in the construction
of the proposed new line had resulted in the present situstion.
While the United States had
stipulsted with the full consent of
Japan, thst it must slwsys have
the fullest control of its immigration affairs, and while Canada,
under Conservative rule, had
stipulated the same thing with
reference to the Imperial treaty
with Japan, the Ottawa government had overruled all theae sentiments and bad entered into a
treaty which had brought about
the present conditions. The government of British Columbia, as
early as 1*97, had placed itself on
record as against Oriental immigration, and Canada had ssid
under Conservative rule that it
would have no part in any treaty
Which would allow an Oriental influx, but the Liberal government
had promptly disallowed every
Nstal set passed by the local
government. The local government could draw much comfort
from the decision of Chief Justice
Hunter on the Natal act, because
tbe chief justice had said in effect
that the act can be enforced
against all but Japanese.
Sir Chsrles said it is difficult for
anyone but a subject of the Mikado
to get into this country without
being able to pass an educational
In referring to Mr. Fisher's
visit to Tokio some yeara ago, the
spesker said that he, a bachelor,
had come back enamored of all
things Japanese, and particularly
of their love of their country and
their homes, and as a consequence
the Japanese are more favorable
to the government than British
Sir Chsrles ssid that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier stated that it would be
foolish to act without thinking and
without reflection, and, ssid Sir
Charles, who was tbe fool? If Sir
Wilfrid hsd tsken the care to find
out tbe facts in the case the present Oriental question would not
be before the people.
The chickens that have come
home to roost on this matter have
not come home because oi the
mistakes of British diplomats, but
from the nest of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
The speaker read the following
letter given to Hon. Rudolph
Lemieux, by the recent Japanese
treaty-makers at Tokio : "This
government will give careful consideration to local conditions prevailing in Canada, with a view to
meeting the desires of the Govern
ment ef the Dominion ss far as
these are compatible with the
spirit of the treaty and the dignity
of this Stste."
Sir Charles could not understand
why there hsd been all these bothersome proceedings on the pert of
the Dominion government when,
at first both the Japanese and the
Imperial governments had been in
favor of restriction of the Japanese
immigration. The wishes of the
people of British Columbia has
been utterly disregarded by the
Ottawa government.
They have been the jackals and
are the jackals of some great corporation that needs cheap labor,
explained Sir Charles, answering
his own question as to why thc
present treaty arrangements hsd
been sanctioned.
Sir Charle-* rediculed the French
trade treaty which the Laurier
government had recently made,
comparing it with the "Little
French Treaty" of the late Conservative government.
The speaker contradicted the
statement sent abroad by the present government with reference to
his peraoaal expenses in connection with the Behring Ses sealing
question for the Imperial government and for Canada, showing
Hon, Mr. Brodeur had, through
the clerks in his depsrtment, sent
abroad a ststement derogatory to
himself in the matter of the expenses of that award. The slsnder of
the   Minister   had    since    been

exercises. North Vancouver already holds a prominent position

Ritchie of a permanent position

Busy Night for
The City Coundl
At Monday night's council meeting considerable discussion took
place over the idea of inviting
Admiral tvans and his fleet to
Burrard inlet. Not so much in
evidence was the good-will of such
an auspicious occasion-as was the
cost of entertaining while here, aa
the Mayor pointed out that the
city's portion might amount to one
or two thousand dollars, which
seemed to him, as well as seversl
of the aldermen to be a little steep
at the present financial standing.
The matter was laid over for another week.
A letter from the city solicitor
regarding the bonusing of the
Wallace shipwards, Ltd., stated
that from a legal point of view
there was nothing to hinder the
council aiding Mr. Wallace in the
establishment of his proposed
large shipyards here.
The water committee reported
favorably on the application of
Mr. P. Larson (or water extension
connections at the corner nf Mahon
avenue and Nineteenth street.
The committee also recommended
that 5,000 feet of pipe be purchased.   The report was adopted.
Thc application for a light at
the corner of Mahon avenue and
Fourteenth street; was not favor-
ably reported upon by the fire and
light committe, and as a consequence no light will be placed
there. They asked that fire alarm
bells be placed in, the residences
of the four firemen, which waa
Aid. Irwin gave notice of a bylaw to establish'the. grade on
Lonsdale avenue, from the north
side oi the Esplanade to Eighth
street, and" First street grade from
Lonsdale east to the bridge, between St. Andrew's sod St.
Patrick's avenues.
A by-law amending section 2, 3
and 5, of the local improvement
general bylaw was introduced by
Aid. Irwin. When those changes
ire made all expense connected
with any ordinary or special improvement on streets or sidewalks
would be charged to the improvements on the frontage tax system.
Any improvement done by any
private individual on streets or
sidewalks, tbe parties making th^
improvements would be allowed
for same, the engineer to estimate
the amount of work done.
The fire by-law was given ita
first reading by Aid. Irwin.
Thc proposal to erect a (10,000
hospital here, did not meet the approval of the council, inasmuch as
tlic heavy expense connected
therewith was thought to be too
great for a place this size. Mayor
Kealy suggested leasing one or
two rooms in a private house to
bc fitted up for emergency casos.
Aid. Braim moved that the council act on this suggestion, and that
a suitable room be engaged for
this purpose until such time as an
hospital was established, and that
the City and District Councils liesr
the expense for same. The hospital
building was laid over for future
The council then adjourned.

Who Pays for
Your Advertising ?
Ritchie Favorite
For Monday Night
Who pays the cost of advertising ? At first sight this question
looks easy, One is apt to say offhand that the advertiser pays it.
But upon closer investigation, it becomes apparent that an advertiser,
who advertises properly, gets back
all the money he spends advetiit-
ing, aud a good deal more—else
what would be the use of his advertising *'
The purchaser doesn't pay it,
because he gets the goods cheaply
from an advertising firm as he
could irom a non-advertising firm,
In many cases he buys cheaper.
Then who pays the cost of advertising?
The non-advertiser does! By
the lack of enterprise in bringing
his goods belore the attention of
the public he loses his customers,
who buy from advertising people.
The profits which ate lost by non-
advertisers find their way into the
coders of those who do advertise.
As an example: If Uo spent in
advertising brings you in jjn additional profit, your advertising is
paid for and you sre f 10 in pocket

Dominick Corvcn was charged
before Mayor Kealy on Tuesday
with d-^ing blasting work without
complying with the blasting bylaw in not having proper pre
cautionary measures taken. A
large piece of stump had been
shot up and landed on the roof of
a house occupied by an Indian
and might have had serious consequences. Owing to the absence
of the contractor, the case was en-
lacged to Saturday.
It is stated that the report of the
commission which has inquired
into the civil service, and which
will be presented soon, will recommend an all-round increase of
salary of from fifteen to twenty
per cent.

although the attendance was rather
slim. The program was a lengthy
one and well selertetl.the numerous
songs received hearty incorec, and

Proposed Local Improvement
***    CIL ul the City "I Norlh Vtui.oii-
The sawmill built and operated
last season by the Western Corporation, and which has been
closed down since Xmas, will
shortly begin operations under
new management. The company
will be known as the Diplock*
Wright Lumber Co., two men who
need no introduction to the public,
having for a number oi years been
identified with the Western Corporation as president and manager
for North Vancouver rcipectively.
Prospects for a busy season are
assuring, and we are informed that
it is the intention of the new company to run the mill to till the
orders on hand, besides cutting
lath, shingles and ties. The
capacity of the mill is 30,000 feet
of lumber per day, 40,000 lath,
25,000 shingles and 3,000 ties per
day. Two up-to-date planers are
also in connection, which enables
the mill to provide all kinds oi
building material,
Electricity is the power used,
three motors, with a combined
unit of 312 horse power, meeting
the demands in and around the
mill, while donkey engines aie
employed iu hauling in the logs.
About forty men will be employed,
and, as in the past, the men will
find lodgings iu the company'!
camp,    .
Messrs. Diplock and Wright
deserve thc support ol the public
in general, and builders in particular, as they intend supplying
lumber as reasonable ai can be
purchased elsewhere.

recalled by liim, but not publicly,
and Sir Charles vindicated himself from the odious charges which
had beta made to do political
service in '.he east.
It looks as if the federal government is preparing to make a
plunge this year, said Sir Charles
in conclusion. An election may
be looked for this year. No matter
how confident you Conservatives
may let.'Ntliat right will intimately
triumph, anil no matter how much
public opinion may be at your
back, you cannot hope to win
unless you are thoroughly organized, so that at the drop ol the hat
you ma*,' teach Ottawa that present
Condition cannot lie permitted to
prevail in Canada.
At the conclusion of the address
Mr. lim linssnn rose from the
audience and asked for a definite
statement fioin a representative
of the Conservative party as to
whether the matter of Asiatic
exclusion would be honestly faced
by that party, and whether the
party would tackle the question in
such a way as to satisfy the people
of Hritish Columbia. Ile said
that both the Dominion and Provincial governments had fooled the
people, anil Mr. Dorden on his
recent visit had appeared lukewarm on the subject.
Iu answer Sir Charles said that
to answer the question would be
to place himself in the position of
a doctor who had been asked to
pledge himself to a prescription
before he had been called in to
prescribe. He pointed out the
irresponsible pledges of the
Liberal government antl saitl that
the Conservative government in
189J bad sent word to Kngland
that il would have nothing to do
with the Japanese treaty proposed
then unless Canada could conserve
the absolute control of immigration
to this country, lie would be
presumptuous to say what the
leader would do when he came
inlo power, but no man could
speak more emphatically and to
the point'than did Mr. Borden.
Whether he won or lost there
would be no more light forthcoming on his position than he chose
to give in his speeches while on
the coast.
Whea the Conservative party
comes into power it will keep
faith with the people and not do
as the deceivers ever who are now
on the throne at Ottawa. Sir
Charles then resumed his seat
amid loud applause.
Chairman Steacy called for three
cheers for the speaker, which were
heartily respondid to, as also the
three cheers for the chairman. A
vote of thanks was moved and
unanimously carrinl.
The meeting then adjourned.
