rose to object to this statement.,

to a .more dire i statement that he
had ' appealed Id the then Mayor
Sloik in person'to have the tax bill,
'presented to the Company.' Tlis'did
not make Mr. Stork's position :any-

this'Si 14.00 paid for printing debentures by the 1906 Council, while the
1905 Council had no such printing to
do, and. we have, the balance against
llie 1906 Council of $88.73,'which can
all 'be accounted for by the extra elections and 'delictilure busiiu-s's handed

priced printing. The . ]<.;:.5 Council
paut'50.cents a copy for what-other
people could get at 25 cents > la'st

printing to handle '.during,, the; year

five lrom Vancouver,, Mr. Uowser,
arrived in town last Saturday,'evening,, and.were 011, tinie for the. meeting called to welcome llieui lo Kernie 'and to hear their praises of the
administration, of the affairs'of- the
province during the last three and a
half years.
The weather was frightfully   chilly,
. but' .. a good-si/ed audience greeted
ihein, composed partly, of people who
would, have voted for their eoiUiuu-
i.iice in power if,their-official record
had been doubly as doubtful as it
really   has ihei-ii,  provided they made
; it plain that they were Conservatives
wiih a big C; partly by very ■ lukewarm ' friends, and a good big sprinkling, of people who seem to take everything jiolilical just now with more
than'the-usual amount of skepticism.
This elementof\skepticism is the result. 36f long continued effort upon the
part' of '' the very ordinary class of
politicians-'    wliich .   has • been    able,-
'.through various conditions,' to gel
itself into official position, which position it vises, or rather fails to use,
for any good purpose.
""   l)r."'Doniiell . presided'at the'  incet-
' ing,'"-aii<l Mr. \V. K. Ross, the local
member, made ' the opening ' speech,
wliich was not up to his usual stand-,
ard.'as'. he devoted most of bis time'
to a father dt-inagogjc '■ attempt to.
prove that' he' was, and, had been, the
devoted "friend of the wbrkingmen of
the district'.' ' His attempt was a fail-,
lire. The very fact that'he deemed il
necessary to do this, 'mailed all, his
building on.a.s-aiidy foundation futile.
,; After' Mr. Ross came .Mr', Bowser,-
who is.a very voluoble speaker, to
.'uy the least,'1ml llio'rci was nothing.

..--II-wasia-.itlleUainushig*t»r»iole the
d-!,.cully the speakers labored ki-V-'.
" in --iheiv- efforts, to prove rthat-' good'
limes in-U- C. was an argument for
the ' continuation' of the present gov-
irainetit, .while thf" efforts of-the ■"Lvb-
irals in the Dominion to lake ' csedit
to - the government for the general
yood llni'-s was an affront, to the intelligent people who have to listen to
such clap-trap. " '-' '
People are fast learning! that ii is a
good government far better th.-u.the
average combination of thai ki'il li.-.t
can keep out Of the way of the progress of the'people, much less take up
on itself credit for what the peoni-;
do  for ■ themselves.   ■ , ' "    '
While -. in Fernie Premier McBvide
was asked lo take,a bold; open stand
for reforms of a matter that'would be
ol vital importance, not only lo this
section of the province, but to'(ill
.sections of it where, such conditions
ej.xist" or'- may in the future spiii"-,'!
into  *.\i.stei-.ce.
" But bold, open   stands of in i'.M-.s'  of
reform     which  might  not  be  t.>  ij e !
liking of corporations,  arc not    m st
what either  'putty   now   asking    the
public support seem,to be wanting.
0 As 'one of Mr. Mcllride's suppor'.ers
in the House put it when he was a-;ls-
ed why lie did not openly advocate'
s;ch a measure, he didn't want to
iUitagotii'c a company which had never antagonized him.
Such a man as.that is not a servant oi the public, but a weak, pas-,
sive tool,'who may be, found in his-
cave whenever the-people arc fighting
for their.rights,^and in, reality ,:s tlio
worst kind of an enemy '•■> ti.»: -people-whose money he takes for service,
withheld- because, as he puts it, some
corporation or ■ company has never'
antagonized him.''
This is a'nice stand for a. man vto

After Hitting,'by new, towns aiul elevators and wood sheds, our P..-:tish

forth like this: ■ ' ' ".■ . .

(.The Kit! is glad the brave women
'on the train were not silent.).   '-
Now conies a jolt.'
The Kid would know how  to    ex-
plaiu, the following had it been- written by a member"of a male gang."of
pencil  pushers out on  a, private ■ car.
