Noinumtioni- For Aldermen.
At a well attended; daeeting of the
citizens committee.held Mouday night
the following gentlemen were placed in
nomination for aldermen. W. W. Tuttle, J. D. Quail, John Mclntyre, Thos.
Biggs, "Thos. Beck and W.S. Proctor
This is the first time in tlie short history
of Fernie as a nuniicinality that a ticket
has been nominated in'an open meeting
pledged to stand together in the legislative administration of the affairs of the
city upon lines which converge to one
central point, municipals interest, regardless of any private considerations.
.This is a long step iu the right direction, and this citizen's movement will
have accomplished ample good to justify existence, if it shall have made it
tiecossary in tho future for all parties to
piii-suo tlie same course. There is not
a single thing in connection with any
public business which requires secrecy
fn its performance. "
No nominations was made for the po*
aition of mayor as it was generally conceded that Bleasdell, who was already
in the Held for that position, was in
every way an acceptable man for the
With A, W. Bleasdell for mayor and
the gentlemen nominated Monday night
for councilors no fault can be found, and
this ticket should and will. reseive tho
support of the majority of the Voters of
Fornie. In this counection we wish to
say that there was a vory strong feeling
in favor of W. W. Tuttle as a candidate
for mayor, but that gentleman had assured his friends that ho had no choice
in the mattor, phicing himself unre-
Hijrredly in the harida of tiie committee
to be used in any way they might deem
best fftr the good of tha city This action on the part of Mr*'Tut.ie was characteristic of the trian, and shows that
he baa not allowed personal feelings to
dominate his actions when public interests aro at stake.
, „We understand tbat the citizens committee are going to organize for an ag-.
gressive campaigu; and if the voters of
the.city.look with a singlo eye to tho
good of tha municipality their ticket
will he elected. '
Wo learn this morning that Mr. W. S.
Proctor has declined to stand as a can*
didste for alderman and the committee
nre arranging a meeting for the
purpose of filling the vacancy.

Mr 1A.. E. Kumra'er is a candidate for

The hockey game between Michel
and Fernie.at the rink here on Monday
night was rather one-sided. The Michel team was hew, most of tho boys being only beginners. However Stitt and
Thompson did good work, and wilh
practice and experience with older
teams thc Michel boys will put up a
rattling good game. Thero was a largo
attendance and the ice in irood condi
tion. .Bob Henderson, of Michel, refer-
eod tho game to'the saiif-frtction of all,
and there was no;rough playing.

The game started at8:51iand Kastner
scored within 30 seconds, and then
White proceeded, to do whitewashing
by scoring for Ferule six timo.9, eight
minutes being the longest time it took
him to put the puck in its pocket and
two minutes the shortest. At the ond
of the first half the score was 7—0.
- In the last half Glcndcning scored in
five minutes, then* Stitt got the puck
into Fernie net for tlie- firet time, and
it took him only.two minutes in which
to do it. Glendening kept dinning till
he made another, mark on Fernio's side
of the score in eig-Kt minutes. Dunn
did likewise in four and a half minutes,
Mhen White took up'tcu minutes fooling
with the puck .fieforo he netted it, after
which,Stitt put it back in the Fernie
not in llirea minutes. The score at the

Tho Associated Boards of Trade.
From the Rosilau'd Mintr-'   '.-
The eighth annual convention of the
associated boards gf,trade of.eastern
British Columbia, wijl convene on Wednesday, Jan 17, at io a.m. in the board
<if trade rooms in Cranbrook. The associated boards consists of the boards
of t.-ade of the following towns and
cites: Cranbrook, > Fernio, Fort Steel,
Grand Forks, Greenwood, Kaslo,
Moyie, Nelson, Phoenix, Siitidon, Trail,
and Rossland.* Each of lhe affiliated
boards is entitled to be represented by-
two delegates,.in addition lo iis president who is a vice-president of the associated boards. It, is an important
body and has played no inconsiderable
part in this section since it was organized, as both lhe Dominion and pro-*
vincial legislatures pay great heed to its
utterances and wislies.and it lists been
instrumental, in securing considerable
legislation. There are a number of
important matters'which it is scheluled
to take action on, a' list of which has
already been published in these columns
and hence there should be a full attendance of delegates from the several atTi-
iated boards of trailei D. V. Molt,
who, with'Fred Stork and A. II. Cree,
president"1 of the Fernie board of trade
is a delegate from Fernie to the assoc-
ited boards of trade, is in the city, Iii
speaking about .the forth coming meeting Mr Molt said: /'These conventions
are of a great deal of'.importance to the
people of eastern British Columbia, and
a full representation.'from every board
should be present. I can say that tliey
may be assured of a hearty welcome
and hosiptal treatment by the people of
Cranbrook. The recommendations of
these conventions have ;ihvays received
careful consideration by the provincia
and Dominion legislatures, and much
has been accomplished through their
efforts. Its president, G. O. Buchanan
is the right man in the right place, and
every board should see.lo il that it is
fully represented in the coming convention.'!      '    •     '.    •

The above may furnish another
clue to why Premier McBride is not
so sure that he has a railroad policy
to preseut to the house when it meets.
A'railroad policy could' not be ruil-

effort to prevent his name from going
on the court records as a real, particularly dead Dennis.
Tho Same old Story
The following editorial from lhc
Boundary Creek Times, of the 29II1
ult, is well worth the reading. The
premier, since arriving in Victorki,
pceim to hnve gotten his brand new
railroad policy mixed up with other
worthless rubbish which he seems to he
,, carrying nbout in his pockets, and i.s ;tl
present unable to say whether he hud
«nch a thing, or if he did ever have it,

"Rit-'h-'ird Mt.li7.Jt-,  vrau'wi ni tint.
isli Cohimbia, has returned from a vis-
it to the East. He, brought'a railroad
policy back with him.' Since some of
his colleagues don't'know what the
policy is," lhe premier, with that punctilious regard for-the eternal fitness of
things for which he is noteJ, has
bridled his tongue and the dear public
must wait until Messrs. Cotton", Tallow,
ct al are clubbed into accepting this
brand new policy-. It is not at all necessary lo consult tho Mon. Robert
Green; so far ;is B4>b is concerned anything Dick says goes. Mr. McBride
dining his visit East saw, according'to
liis own statement, tbe following railway magnates: Sir Thomas Sluuig-
ncssy, J. J. Hill, Chas. M. Hays, V. M.
Morse, \V, "*.!..• McKenzi*- and Dan
Mann. These are the men who control the destini.'s of tlu*; Canadian Pacific, tlu; Great * Northern, the, Grand
Trunk Pacific nnd the Cai-adi-m Northern.
The people of nriti-.Ii Columbia who
have some regard for the*'credit of tlie
province and also for its reputation,
were greatly concerned when a politician of MeBride's calibre left the confines of the province. It has been hinted for months that Premier McBride
was anxious to dissolve the legislature
and appeal lo the public. There was
one importacit thing lacking—.ihe
wherewithal to carry  on a  campaign.'
Judging from the experiences of thc
past the premier is not any too particular regarding tbe source of supply nor
the extent to which (be province is compromised lo secure the, same.
According to the premier's own statement the situation is alarming. He
!>oes east without a railway policy; he
returns with one. He goes East without bis colleagues having any knowledge of any rrilway policy to which his
government is committed aud returns
with a policy so new that his colleagues
know nothing about it and must be
consulted before any announcement is
made.   -
icy? The premier's mind was a blank
on the question ol transportation before
going East, as  it  generally  is  on4 all
,.--...4....._ ..(Vrt^tJrxrr .Un Noel inlprAoin   ,*r
■he province. But he saw Shaugh-
nessy and Hill and Hays and , Morse
md Mackenzie and Mann and be returns with a railway policy. Who filled
(be vacuum, or in other words who
contributed the campaign fund? How
much ofthe public land is to bo alienated, to what extent is the public treasury lo be depleted in order that the McBride government may have ?25.ooo
or $50,000 to corrupt tho electorate of
the province?
As a statesman Premier McBride i.s
a woeful failure; as a jollier he is without peer in this or any other province.
The Boundary Creek Times makes the
assertion thai lhc announcement of a
railway policy of some importance nnd
lhe mysteriousness connected tiicrowilli
is'all a part of that clever but shallow
political game which McBiido so dearly love lo play. The Times makes
1I10 further assertion llial the railway
policy which McBride has in his'.iiisidf
pockei will nol open up <u\y new section
of lhe province and will not be efi'eclive
in building a single mile of new railway
lb-it tho necessities of transportation
conditi.-ins will nol force the building
1 hereof, without regit id to any railwin
policy which the McBride government
may ncn.'pt from tlm railway- corpora-

Victoria, B. C, Jan. 8th 1905.—With
thc advent ofthe. new year, active-preparations have been taken  in hand  for
the-'opening on-. Thursday,   the  nth
; inst., of the 1906 session of the provincial parliament—a session  which  it. is
generiilly believed will iinmediaielypre-
cede   an  appeal to the country by the
McBride government, and   which, will
*.-  therefore be notable, for such. alluring
railway legislation as may bo ..expected
to predispose tlie electorate toward a
distinctly insecure and mediocre admiii-"
istration.    At thc time of Premier , MeBride's departure on  his  hurried  visit
to  Ottawa,   Montreal,  Torontot   New
York, Boston and other.eastern centers,
bn "purely departmental  business" as
explained both by himself and  by  Finance Minister Tallow whoaccomanied
liim,-the expectation was that the inevitable in lhe shape of a general election
would be.deferred asjong as  possible,
and the Premier himself was   the   authority for the prediction that thb'Torlh-
coining session woukl'bc ."a  very short
ono.    However since the return ol  tlio
chiefs of govci ninent   from the mysler-
ous East, where they called upon  numerous heads of railways both  present
and prospective,  meroly" as a matter of
common politeness as llie  Premier, has
since explained, the situation  appears
to have changed, and it is now to be a
protracted session—also a general elec-
. tion shortly afterwards,   to take advan»
tage of alleged .-'disaflfeclions in llie lib*
cral ranks and a supposedly favorable
psychological moment in  the  fortunes
of Canadian Conservatism.
Besides the estimates; which will   be
brought down as speedily, as  possible,
and the railway legislation, which .-will
take the reverse procedure, the gSyein-
' ment program will no doubt he hu*gcly
composed of measures for the.'rectific**-
' lion of established blunders in past legislation.    There is the  big blunder in
-the matter, of the South-East Kootenay
coal and oil prospecting licenses  to  be
disposed of.  There is the similar worse-
than blunder in' the  issuance of trap
and   foreshore  fishing  licenses,    upon
which fees of $100 were obtained vfor
4 powers in which the  government  had
not  lhe slightest. title  to  dispose of.
There are understood to be' no'material
alterations  contemplated   with  regard
to ihe assessment anil  taxation- laws,
•fijiijoiigh the adopted   heavy  increases
were introduced as   merely   temporary
expedients neccssary.to rehabilitate the
credit     of    the .   Province     in    the
jjjoney   market—no   changes   iif the
Jumbcring and logging industry.    The
game law will receive' its nnnual, irim
miiig and a measure  will  probably * be
.brought forward-by Hon.  Mr.  Fulion,
?iipon a report.now  in,preparation   by
;Dr. C.'j. Pagan, secretary of the  Provincial Board of Health, for the purpose
of safeguarding lhe. people of British
Columbia aginst poisons and other deleterious constituents contained in what
are known as patent medicines.
As to the position  of affairs   in   the
Honse, it   is   understood  to be quite
■.within the bounds ol possibility  tlmt
lion. Charles Wilson will shortly retire
.—or he- retired—from   the Attorney-
Generalship, whicli is generally regarded hs too heavy a responsibility   for   a
gentleman of his advancing years;  being succeeded either by Mr. VV. J, Bowser, K. C.,,of Vancouver, or Mr. W. R.
Ross, K. C, of Fernie, with the chance:.
of llie latter most favorable, by reason
of tho existent over-representation of.
Vancouver  in   thc   cabinet   councils;.
Mr. Wilson, is now onrouto liomu from
England, wliere lie has " been   makiug
nnolhcr of those quite unnecessary trips
in connection with B. C, appeals beforo lho Privy Council, nnd   will   unquestionably offer serious objection  lo
the desired shelving.   On thc other side
of tho Ifoust", the Government members
nre comforting tlieinselvei- by saying
thut Mr. J. A. McDonald,  K. C,  the
member from Kossland and  Provincial
' Liberal leader, Is np't to ho missed .il

acceptance of n judgeship, his eminent
qualification for which high pfl'jco id
eagerly conceded; niul betwixt and between the opposing bodies—for who
can put n finger ou this mercurial quan
lily?—Mr. John Houston; of Nolson, i.s
fiecauioniiig much   speculation ns he
ummlly docs.   While there hits been
