St fhe begirinihg,i'of. its;career, the
Lwlgpr proclaimed itself, an independ
enijounial and although. \t. admitted-li
decided leaning towards the liberal par-
■' ty, it has not; spared .that party when its
leaders- • and machine - operators - did
things which none but the blindest; of
party followers could pass by in silence
" The'!rarik and file of the liberal party
are much more in sympathy, with the
everyday workingriian than has .ever
been the rank and tile of the conscrva-
1 live party and if the leaders of the liberal party are' true to the principles
they profess, there .will.be no'such wide
breach between the* labor voters and
the liberals," especially in this province
and in this constituency as now seenv,
to exist. ■' "

In igos'a company called the Transcontinental Exploration Syndicate applied to Mr. R.'F." Given, then • Chief
Commissioner of Lands and Works, for
leases of 32 sections of coal lands on
Pine River,;which;"when the early construction of the Grand .Trunk Pacific
Railway through that ."portion of British Columbia is considered, are"'certain
to. become of greatahd.immediate value.
' Representing the Transcontinental
Exploration Syndicate was Sir Adolph
Caron, formerly a' Conservative minister of the Crown at" Ottawa. The application was refused-'by Mr. Green,
who a'ledged as a reason that the. Dominion-government had not then selected the 3,506,000 acres of land in the
northwest corner of this province
which were conveyed to it by tlie terms
ol the Settlement,Act under which --the
Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway was

evening to listen to Mr. Moore and
those who favored hia election discnaa
the political issues of the campaign.
An invitation had been extended to
all opposing candidates or their friends, ,
but no one availed himself of the privilege.
Mr. Evans, of Coal  Creek, took the
chair, and after yerv briefly stating tha
object of the meeting, introduced Mr.
Moore,   who   was  greeted   with  loud
cheers as he rose to speak.   His speech
was short but very concise and to tho

to what he would do if elected. Ho took

to who is the candidate of the working*
men of this district, it has been thoroughly dispelled uy the unmistakable
Vi'efeicuces of the audiences that have
•,-rcetcd Mr. Moore, not only at his own
meetings,.but at,those of both the other
candidates./ • .,
A'ter Mr! Moore's brief speech, Mr.
Mott was called upon and paid his re-,
speets. to Mr.. MeBride's governments
lie showed, that Mr. MeBride's statement ,as to- the methods adop:-
e<l ' by his government regArdlnp
timber .'were exactly tbe reverse cf
the facts in the case, and made tbe
statement that the present government
had aiieuated more timber than had any
other government, and had received
less bonus for the same, and had extended the time cf license holders from one
.year to 10 years.
Mr. MeBride's claim for credit Ior having done such a good job of advertising
with apples, with no cost to thn province,
came in for a little sarcasm, whLcb earned audible smiles to ripple over tha.
The, event of the evening, however,
was the oratorial effort of Mr, B. F. Wilson.
From start to finish Mr. Wilson held
the closed attention of his hearers, and
there is not the slightest doubt that hU
address made a most favorable impression. ' '    "' ' ".
No speaker of the campaign has in
any way equalled Mr. Wilson in poiut
of oratory or close connected reasoning..
No working man could listen to him
unmoved or fail to take into his mind
the fact that workmen have it withj»
their power by united action ih their
own intent to compel legislation in their
own interest-..   "„..      ....,: ...I.
There was no appealing to the use of
parties to pass bad legislation in order
to secure legislation for thcmselvea..
This is the proper  attitude (or the.,
working  man, which, if  adhered to,
will win for them final success.
The meeting closed with three rous-,
ing cheers and a tiger for Mr. Moors. .

From the explun.itioni of Messrs,

emerge: '
' (1) That'Sir Adolph Caron and.associates received coal lands in llie Telqua Valley.
(2) That Mr.' Neil Mackay received
stock in tlie Transcontinental Syndicate.
(3) That, according,to the Premier,
Mr. Green was the substantial holder
of the stock..   _    , .-..»"
(4) That, according to Mr. Green ihe
stock was Mr. Mackay's own property...

from men having' business relations
with the department of which he'.was

Let us sum up the record of this government which Is-seeking a-new lease
of power at our hands on Saturday.,
In' the first piace, they were called to
take charge of the government as a result of broken personal pledges to their
associates in the opposition to the Prior
government, and by the aid of professed
Liberals, who interceded tor them at
Second—They refused to carry out.fhe
obligations of the government in regard
to  licsnses   and   lenses   in   Southeast
Tliirdr—They appealed to the country
for endorsalion, nnd • were answered
with-so scant a support that they were
under the necessity of combining with,
an independent elemoni in order to
carry on the business of the House. ,
Fourth—They passed, with the aid
of this independent element, a loan bill
ofn very objectionable nature nnd currying the high rate of 5 per cent, interest,
, They formulated a most objectionable
assessment act.
They passed','! fearfully nnd wrongfully constructed school bill.
They made a secret deal with n
middle party for. to,000 acres of land on
Kalen Inland, which lliey knew was to
bo transferred to the G, T. P. Co. nml

for two years,

from this district and the nature of
the country' ih that riding is such as
to render road building much less
expensive than in this district yet
that district with a liberal or, opposi
tion member secures larger appropria
tions for roads aud bridges than
does Mr. Ross secure for this one.
Perhaps our porily member considers
the flattering boquets thrown at him
by the premier of sufficient import
ance to make up for tlie deficiency.
Mr. Ross' legislative record very
evidently does not snit the labor
element in this constituency and it is
too late in the season to undertake to
square things by " promising to do
next time what he has left undone in
the past He has the labor element
arrayed against him-and justly, so.
He cannot hope to go back to Victoria
claiming to be a trusted' friend of
the labor interests. This campaign
plainly indicates that he is not - trust

considerable support from any class

fortune', should happen to the1 district;
to interests antagonistic in the last
degree to any'kind of labor,-legisla

during this contest that.he1 only re'
ceived 10% of the labor vote three
years'ago and he will receive less
than that proportion this time and
how can any labor man hope for any
favors from a representative who
publicity lays this'charge, at then-
door. He evidently got more than
10% of the corporation vote of this
district and will do so again, hence
his relutance to prbmiso to introduce
or support legislation in favor of the
common peoplo which might be op
posed by corporation influence A
legislator works along line's suitable

labor vote last time and he will, not

"For upwards of five years I was a

the morning while getting up I would
be seized witn agonizing pains in my
hips. Sometimes these pains extend-'

the other, of'ieii down both.- The
pain ..was terrible Imagine the
ugony caused by a red hot'spike
bsing'driven through the flesh. That
was just my feeling when the sciatica
was at its worst. Often while carrying water to the horses the pain became so acute I' had'to drop the pail
in the .yard. ■ I followed- doctor's
treatment but with sli/jht relief. , I
then tried rheumatic plasters and

Itsb, that is iieiise tor Zam-Buk the
great herbal balm. The herbal saps
and.' eesences, in this balm are so
powerful that they can" heal the worst
eases of chronic'sores,, ulcers, blood
poison and skin diseases. Here are
,   proofs of this : - '
"Mrs. W.llfTaylor,-of.North Bay,
Ont.,-says:— 'T had a scaly spot; on
my face as big as a 10 cent piece.   I
had it for four years, and hardly a
-   night during' that time went. by but
what I applied cold cream, or some
ointment' or   other,    but  it  would
,   always be there., J recently applied
Zam-Buk, and' 'in about a week's
tijne the spot had disappeared completely.   I cannot thank you enough
.   for your remedy, and I toll every-
'   one to be sure'and keep Zam-Buk in
their house."
Mrs.  S.  J.   Holdcn, "of 343 \Vcst
Hannah St.,  Hamilton, says:  "My
little girl had a running sore on her
:' leg which defied all treatment.   I
applied ZamrBuk, and in about a
~   week's time/tho wound "was closed. I
haye "foitnd; Zara-Bak just as gocd
for other skin troubles and injuries."
" Mr,J. H. Hamilton, of Thornbury,
says:—'The first Zam-Buk I obtained  was for a  friend   who had an
obstinate sore on her temple.   It had
. been  treated' once  or,, twice  by.a
doctor, and .would heal up for a short
time', -.but would break out again.
Zam-Buk healed it permanently,and
it shows no "sign whatever of return-
^Similar grateful "testimony' is to
Hand from men and women in all
parts of Canada."" Zam-Buk is a sure
cure for all.skin diseases and injuries
such as cuts, burns, eczema, psoriasis
ulcers, scalp sores, cold sores, chapped
bands, itch,-rashes, tetter, face sores,
etc. . It-is also an unequalled embrocation, and,rubbed, wellon to parts
