Wt Ot Wolls, tlm Opposition candi
'lute in the coining Provincial elections,
opened tho Iiu 11 ut Windermere on Mon
day iiijjit liy addre!>siuy; the electOI'B
ii* the Presbyterian Church building.
Thero was u large and representative
attendance, S. Brewer wus voted to
the chair, and iu a humorous man net'
he opened the meeting His remark
that the Government was about to he
called to account fur its sins, when it
wuuld have to mo once aud for all,
wns greeted with hearty cheers. He
then called on the candidate to open
the ball.
Mr. Wells, on rising, was received
with prolonged elm-is. Iu a clear and
('leaning speech lie said this Candida
ture had been in a manner thrust upon him. lie had been urged to come
lorward aud hud been adopted by the
Opposition Convuitiou us their candidate, Though it had not b..en his
wish to enter this contest ho recognised that, having obtutued a cousider-
tihlo stake in the country, he had a
duty to perform, and hence his consent to become a candidate. He was
glad to sue such a large meeting, and
if thia meeting was to be any indication as to the result of this election
victory fur the Oi |ioaitiou parry waau
foregone conclusion (cheers). He referred first of uli to the fiimnce of the
Government, shoeing that they weie
already face to face with a delioit uf t*
million dollar*
The annual deficit, iu the absence of
material contributions to the development of tie country, showed that
t era wass jniething wrong somewhere.
Another point ou which he did not
agree - with the government wus their
mm hod of disposing of dm public lands.
He quoted from the Ouluu.n Era the
plunks uf the plutform of the Opposition Convention held at New Wist-
min-iter on October Uth, aud endorsed
the rt forms therein proposed. He considered that the residents of this valley
had good reason to appreciate the necessity of an ulteiaiiou in the system
uf disposing of the public lauds, H.
condemn* d t he laud grunt to tbe Upper
Columbia Navigatieu Company for a
work that was uiteily useless aud butt
Low bs-'ti abamioued. Then there wuh
thn Canal Flat lund grunt, by which
3-),ClO acres of the public lauds bad
been given awiiy in exchange lor the
construciion of a di'xh, a work thai
wus worse than useless, us it huu
threatened to drown out the settlers ot
the Valley, aud cost the Government
two or three thousand dollars to till it
up again. That was a ridiculous,
nonsensical grunt, made without un..
consideration or enquiry ou the part uf
the government us to w net lier the work I
would accomplish what was intended.:
uud without any provision whateter, j
for securing to th.* province some tqui-
valeut for the bug*, lund grant, Au
other instance was I hut of the hum
grant for the Nelson and Uubsuu
railway. The worst feature of this
affair was that, although this railway
was of no advantage to the
District whatever, being locate.!
iu West Kootenay, the
Company th,.t built ic had been per
mined t j muke up their lund grant bv
picking out Htnl.tpprupriH'iug 10 them-
-ttdves the finest latitis iu the vailey.
tn us shutting up the district from settlement. Bur what put the capon uli
was the charter for the building of the
B. C. Southern railway.
That charter was backed up by the
government, It wus a charter Unlike of which hud never been known in
this country or any ether for iis extravagant terms, giving away as it
did tq iho Hon Col, Baker and hie
friends nearly 4.000,000 acres of th
public lands ami tbore not ntces-mnlj.
tu the viciuiu of the railway (elm-is)
That charter covered the grunt of till*,-
UOU acrts ofthe finest coal lauds in the
world. Col. Baker disposed of his
railway charter for ITu'.OOO in cash
and retained tha coal lands without
having even contributed u dollar tu
the public reveuue in exchange for
such valuable oouoi ssiuns To characterise that us u deliberate "steal" was
to use a very mild term (cheers). If
these coul hinds wero held today by
the Province the revenue derived from
thftm would be such as to build everj
railway in the Province for the next
2 > years (Renewed Cheers). The C P,
B. were geitfng from the Dominion
Government a cash subsidy sufficient
to hut Id a railway independent Of tho
Und subsidy which had been given by
the Province. As Col. Baker still
held the coal lauds ihe people of the
Province had actually made a present
of that immense area of the public
lands to, the C. P, R. He remembered
seeing in the annual report of   the   C.
consideration. No doubt the C. P. R.
had already issued bonds against
these lands to the amount of several
million doll KIN and had put the mone\
so realised iu tlieit pockets.���amounting probably tn some 10 oi \2 million
dollars. No doubt Col. Baker received
some consideration on the side fur the
comparutm-lv small sum for which he
handed owr the B, C. Southern grant
to the C. P. It., and it was evident
that consideration was the booming ol
atowiisi'e at Craul.rook.
Mr. Wells then dealt with the financial position  of  the   Province.       He
pointed out the danger of a government so ii.is using   its   rhiiui es   tl at
what were known as the fixed diaries
must absorb the whole of the le.un.e,
resulting in Increased and opprer-slve
taxation.     That was the position into
which we were drifting in ttritltdi v. 1-
umbiu. and the result   was   that   tho
country already hud to burrow to pay
the annual deficit.       This borrowing
policy for such  purposes   must   have
the direct result of increasing the fixed
charges and bringing about  tno  very
state of things which they must avoid
if the finances of the country weio   to
be kept in a sound condition.     Otherwise their finances wonld soon get into a state in which tho revenue would
be so absorbed by  fixed charges that
thero would be no funds aviiila.-J-s  for
the further opening up ofthe country
as development proceeded.   What was.
wan red was a   new   policy, whereby1
borrowing   in   the  London     market
should be limited to legitimate definite
projects, which would themselves provide for the liquidation   of   tho   loan
und payment of interest over   a   long
term of years.       By adopting such a
policy they could   put  waggon  roads
into every  mining   camp   where   the
propels were   such   as   ro warrant
their being worked.       There   was   u
royalty levied by the   Government of
Ik per cent on the net product of mines.
That re veils o isl.f-uld be set aside for
the specific purpose of providing inter
est uud sinking fund on the moneys required to give the necessary uccess. In
this way they could place a numb-tv of
important mines in tho District on the
shipping list as soon as tho necessary
roads wero constructed,   thus giving
employment  to   labor,   affording   the
farmers a market at  their   doors   for
iheir produce, increasing the   business
of the District, nnd developing its  resources which are now   lying unused
for want of ihe necessary facilities. As
nearly as he hud been able to get at it.
the resources of ths North   Riding   of
East Kootenay would justify thein   in
"inn on the Government to  provide
say ��i.' 'i.OiO for the   construction   of
roads and the opening up of the District in an effective manner,   so   that
every miuo which was   in   a position
otherwise to become a shipper should
have the transportation facilitie-i  for
enabling the ore to he got out.       He
would hate that loan fund treated as u
Strictly separateue.-oiint, to be applied
to specific purposes and with a specific
revenue to liquidate it over a period of
2it or 30 years,
Mr. Wells then dealt with the $5,-
000, U00 loan authorized last session
uud pointed out that not a Hollar of
that loan wus available for the development of the District, although the
property of tbe District was just ss
much liable for it as whs the taxable
property on the Coast, which alone
would bo benelit led by it as matters
no oil. If elected ono of his first duties
would he to demand for the develop.
ment of this District a fair share of
that loan, and as they had to pay their
share of tho revenue they were entitled
to a proportionate benefit (cheers),
He would asV tbetn to pardon him
if he made an oxplanation of u personal nature,in refercucj to his candidature. Ho had accepted the nomination
of the Opposition Convention, Aming
those who hud. urged b>8 candidature
above uli others was W. G. Neilson,
whose urgent requests that he should
lit),*oine a candidate date I back some
twelve months ago, and he had
attached much imp<nance to Wr Neilson's representations and re pouted
pledges of sup; ort. It was not mote
than three weeks ago since Mr. Noil-
son had again given him assurances
of his support. He (Mr. Wells) hid
said to bitn that he could not give his
time from his business. Mr. Neilson
replied: ���' Wolls, we'll elect you without opposition." He was therefore
very much surprised when he learned
of Mr. Neilson's opposition. They
might naturally say   there  must   be
P.R.a boost of iheexceptionully favor-'something wrong that a man of Mr
able terms on whioh these lands had Neilson's character and reputation
been  obtained   for  a merely nominal    bould take the  stand   he  had   now
Mann wero the coniraciors for tho
work. There was an agreement arrived ut. He (Mr. We'll*) approved of tho
terms of tho contract in itself. It involved au expenditt.ro of fl.600.000,
but be (Mr. Wells) e;-.pressed a doubt
at the time as to vvlifther Messrs. Alc-
Kcnzio & Mann would build I lie roud
ou the tiruis then agreed upon. It now
turned out that Messrs*, McKeiizla &
Munn hud declined to accept tho terms
of the contract and had thrown it Up
What did that inerth? It meant thoy
were going to the Parliament of the
Province for an Increasad subsidy.
They had no intention nf losing such
an opportunity und at the next session
of Parliament they would again appear
and ask an increased subsidy. What
then was more natural than that they
should endeavor to have members returned at this election who would help
thein to -^ot that appropriation. The
Government no doubt had told Messrs.
McKcuzic. & Maun that if they wanted
to make sure of a more liberal appropriation being granted them they must
help get. members returned who would
back it up, The only available man
they could call upon was Ml*. Neilson.
their managing man here, and tbey
had no tloi.bt told him he must accept
nomination and go to Victoria to support a further subsidy to them. 'Ihe
electj1-s were now face to fitcjwirh the
facts, Mr, Neilson might say that he
was not going to sin port the Go* phi
ment but wns nn Independent. Was
there any reason in such n position?
ah. Netlsuu am. he had discussed the
political situation iiuely during the
past 18 months and Mr. N flson knew*
well and agreed with his views us to
the necessity for tho removal from
office of a government which hnd so
extravagantly ui-.d corruptly conducted
tho business of tho country (oheprs).
Mr. Wells concluded by assuring
the meeting of his uuruost wish to
bring ubout the remedies he had suggested and to promote the best, interests of the District. He recogniz d
the responsibility that would rest on
him in the event of his being returned
as their Kepresy initive and would take
steps to gel out of a business which
had so far ougros>ed the whole of his
iime so that he might davptetheneces
sary time md attention to promoting
then interests. He offered to answer
questions which the electors might de
sire to put and thanked t *?ein for the
patient hearing thoy had feiven hitn.-
(Loud cheers).
Mr. Carter urged thorn to put aside
party fceiingsand vote for tho best
man. Ilecx, Inland that Mr. Neilson
way unable to be present that evening
us he had other engagements.
Mr. Kimpton said Mr. Neilson had
told him be would be in tho district
eoveral days,
Mr. Wells said Mr-Neilson had been
specially a invited to be present at
that meet ing aud defend himself
against the injustice he had done him
in opposing him after having promised
his unqualified support. Ho said it
had been charged against him also
that he hud paid his employes very
low wages He was prepared to say
that he daid higher wages than any
other milling concern in the mountains
and would submit his books so that
thoy could be compared with the wages
paid by the other mills und if he could
not justify hi/3 assertion he would retire from the contest within th j next
24 hours (cheers).
K. A. Haggen thon addressed ths
In reply to Mr. Brewer's question us
to the taxation of railway lands, Mr.
Wills said that as soon as the laud became subject tu taxation under the contract it was the houiuhm duty of the
Government to levy the tax. He denounced tbo mortgage tux. He would
support tho maintenance of the rate of
wages now paid to men employed on
government works in the district
In reply to Mr. Harris, Mr. Wells
said that iu event of settlers having
to pay the cost of survey that should
be deducted from the amount to be
paid tu tho Government for the land,
ns fie contended all lands should be surveyed when oi-ened for soitlement.
With reference to tho C. I\ R. laud?
in the district be would be glad to use
for complaint, and had submitted it to
tho Board of Management he had never
fuiled to cbtain a remedy. That dioT
not alter the fact that the Company
had received concession in the district
to which they were not entitled in tbe
public interest, but it was the govern*
ment tbat gave these concessions that
wss to blame, aud that was the Turner Government, which he wus before
them that night to oppose,
Ent9itainment at Windermere
One of the most pleasant owning-)
spent at Windermero was on Saturday
night, tin; occasion being an entertainment organized in aid of the fund for
building a public ball aud organizing
a library. Mr. North way was chairman and briefly explained the object
ofthe entertainment, which opened
with a " douky " puzzle The following programme was presented :��� Glee
hy Mesdames Kimpton und Rehdur,
Miss Gibbous, and Messrs. Taynton,
and Rehder. Mrs. Put more on tho
guitar, uud Mr. Wat kins on the violin
played the accompaniment, . An encore was heartily demanded, but the
chairman said recalls could not be allowed owing to tho limited time.
Master C. Kimpton gave a clover recitation, and this  was   followed   by   a
ar ette by Mr. and Mrs. Rehder,
lira. Kimpton and Mr Taynton. Then
came, a dialogue by the schowl children
and a reading by E. A. Haggen. A
c. aracter sketch was cleverly given by
Masters 0. Brewer, Morijouu. V. Kimpton, Misses M.trijeau, and Vera Pat-
more. J. Hughes was deservedly encored for an item on the barrel organ.
The item of the evening was a Highland Fhng by Miss Vera Pat more
which drew forth tho plaudits of tbe
a.idienci), and the clever little maid hud
tu respond tu un encore. Rucitutions
followed by Masters Morijeau and A.
Vt Kimpton, A pretty chorus was
then given hy Mesdames Kimpton und
Rehder, Miss Gibbous, Messrs. Rehder
a id Taynton, accompanied on the
guitar by Mis. Pat more, and on the
violin by Mr, Warkins. Recitations
by Masters Brewer and A. V. Kimpton
brought tho entertainment to a closa.
Advantage waa taken of the interval
to huve a sale of home-made candy.
On he call of Mr. Haggen hearty votes
of thanks were accorded by acclamation to the ladies who got up the affair, nnd to the chuiiunun.
At the invitation of W. G. Neilson
tho audience went to the landing,
where they bourdod tho Duchess, and
were taken by Capt. Bacon for a trip
p and down the lake. The treat was
a most enjoyable one, and music aud
dancing were indulged in. Ou the return to the landing, hearty cheers
were accorded to Mr. Noil sen for hia

We publish in  another column  the
address of Mr. W. C. Wells tjhisoou-
stltuonts.    Mr. Wells is tho candidato
put forward in opposition to tho  Turner-Pooley Governmont,   having  been
asked to come   forward   a  year ago.
His e tmlidatura was adopted   by   the
Liberal   Association   last   year,    and
again by   the   Opposition convention
recently held at Golden.     The address
compiled and issued by Mr. Wells is a
capital ono, covering as   it   does   tho
principal grounds of opposition to  the
Turner-Pooley   party.        Mr.   Wells
draws attention in his address to  one
most important   point,   and  that   is
that ot the  five   million   dollar   loan
authorised last session,   not   a dollar
has boen voted to East Kootenay. Yet
the people of this district are aa  much
responsible for that loan  as   are   the
peoplo at tho Coast.   Their property is
subject to the increased taxation necessary to pay tho interest,  and  sinking
funds on it just as much as  ths   property of tha couct cities of Victoria.tint)
Vancouver, which will receive almost
tho entire benefit from the loan.     Mr.
Wells contends, and rightly so, that a
gross injustice is being dons  to  this
district by such a   scheme,   vchon   it
would be far move to the true interests
ol tho Province as a wholo to havo the
interior  opens!   up than  to squander millions an a railway to tho Yu-
which is a work really belonging
to the Dominion, and one with   whioh
Hie Province should have   nothing   to
do.    Messrs.     MeKouzia      & Mann
is   not satisfied  with    the  imn.onse
loan with   which   the Turner-Pooley
Governmont has endeavored to gorge
it, hut, like Oliver, it is  "asking fer
more".     These gentlemen having u-
fused the offer of   the  Turner Pooley
party, tho money cannot now   be  expended till it is again denlt  with   by
Parliament.     Here Mr. Wells cleverly
hits the nail oq the bund hy his pledge
that he will d- his utmost   to   obtain
(or the opening up of this District a
[air share of that loan,     It is c riain
tho Opposition party is going to carry
the elections as a whole, and with that
pledge from Mr. Wells, and will)   Ihe
certainiiy of a change of government,
tho.'e is not the  slightest  doubt   but
that the present injustice to this District will be removed,   and   ihe   loan
moneys reapportioned to open up Borne
of the main   roads   in   this  District.
Tbat means that the Uppor Columbia
Valley Roud from Donald to tne Peace
River will be constructed.       This   is
without exception the most important
road in British Columbia today, afford-
ing as it does  tbo   shortest  snd best
route to the Peace Rivor snd Omeuica
districts; whilo under present arrangements hundreds  ol   people  going   in
there have had lo go by Edmonton cr
Ashcroft,  and   have   outfitted  thero,
when that trade ought, and would have
been seenred to Donald and Golden had
this route been opened up.   It is a crying  shame  that   the  Turner Pooley
Government havo only  allotted  45800
for that route this year.     That appro-
prlntion is merely a return of a fraction o[ tho revenue raised in, and paid

not include a cent of loan moneys. Tho
vole is only snifficient for a short twopenny-halfpenny trail,  and  has  been
put in hand in such a way as  lo suggest an attempt to bribe the poople of
Donald to voto for the Turner-Pooley
ring. The Government evidently holds
Donald e.'�� p at that price;   but if we
aid wo reckon they havo a higher opinion of their value and are not likely to
bo hoodwinked by any such trickery.
Not oi.ly will Mr. Wells's policy mean
the opening up of this great trunk
road, but we shall have waggon roads
from Boavor to the Bennison Mine-
tlie best Mine today in North-East
Kootenay, and which will not be
worked'ill a road is built ���to Bald
Mountain, to McMurdo Country [ up
So. 2, Horsethief, Toby and Dutch
Creeks. This will do more to develop
the resources of Uritlsh Columbia, and
to add to its wealth, than all tho Yukon railroads cvarr projected. A well-
known miningengiiiec;i' from Rossland.
who recently visited Windermere, informed us that he knoevs of a dozen
mines there that could ship ore nf a
profit if ibey could get waggon roads
up Toby and Horaethiol Creeks to enable I hat. ore tn be landed to tbo river.
Sen what thai means lo lite District
compared with the little trull expenditures now being ni.ule in tliat district
to bribo the electors. Tbo District is
entitled lo these expenditure? without
any fear or favor, and thoy would
have had lo be mado an} how. Because men nro being employed nn ihom
now is no reason why electors should
Sell their souls us dirt for a few dollars
ot government money, whicli after all
has been paid by and is the property
ol the people of tbo District. Mr.
Wells makes his pie-due. Ho is a men
who means what bo says. He has
propounded tbe I est. policy ever put
forward in the Interost of this District.
Ii is a sound, honest policy. Let us
fight for tbe man and elect jiitn as our
representative, and bis policy must
and will bring to East Kootenay that
prosperity for which tbe people have
so long and fondly hoped.
ho end ot that time racked with pain
nud weighing 4U pounds less, At this
juncture, when hope had almost fled,
I hoard of Paine's Celery Compound.
Ii seemed suited to my case, and I
sent to my druggist, Mr. J. W. Hig-
ginboilisin, of thi- place, ond asked
about it. He recommended it to me,
iiinl I took a bottle I soon began to
feel better, and after taking the second
bottle I was a cured man an threw
itway my crutches.
I keep a bottle on hand in case of
any return of the complaint. I am
now 58 years old, and I feel as spry
and healthy and free from pain as ever
I did in my life. I was horn in Norfolk, England, an.l came lo Canada
when only 3 years old, 1 wns brought
up iii the township of Cornwall, Ontario, and enme to Manitoba eight
years ago. Have always been a farmer, and am us able to do hard work

About four miles further the discarded

To tl"]e Electors
of  trie   North   j^idiqg-
of East Kooterjeiy.
My nomination ns an Opposition Candidate in the approach-
ing General Election for our Legis'aiure, calls on me to state to
you briefly, the course, which in my opinion, 1 should take if
elected no your Representative.
So far as I huee been uble to measure the feeling of  this
' i
r 1
' s
-**l     Constituency, it is one of disappointment iu the administration
>-'*"     of onr Provincial affairs.    In the present contest Iain glad to say,
ne are not so divided on party lines, as to debar us from taking
our choice of men throughout the Province for'the ensuing Parliamentary term, and it is to be hoped that an independent effort
will be made iu this direction. Holding the opinion, as I do, that
the record d the present Governmont, in the disposa.pf Publio
Lands, and their administration of the Provincial finances, not
having been such as to command Hiy support, it is my plain duty
for tbe .resent, ts claim vour suffrages as an Opjasitiou Candidate. This does not necessarily mean that I must place myself
in such antagonism to any admiiiistru'iou, as :o defeat what,
should be my primary object us a Representative, namely, tbe interests of my own Constituency.
Nor does ii mean that I am in full alliance with tbe Opposition puny as it has s'oad bofore tho Legislature during the past
four years. For this reason, if no otlier, I would ask at tbo
hands of my Constituents, if elected, a free indulgence of my own
J"j3    I look for at leant a  leconsiruciioti  as  the result of the General
lia     Election, and that we may have an Administration fully nicellng
Ej     the demands of our rising Province.
est The large nppropiiirion of io.oCO.COO under the recent. Public
-?S- Works Loan Amendment Act, while  Indicating a generous lutid-
po eticy in tbe disposal of public funds,   cannot meet the approval uf
fA interior Constituencies.       We are interested in something more
(���.-* than building up our terminal cities, and the exclusive welfare of
i-.l di.'iticts immediately tributary to them.    It will therefore, beuiy
and that we may have, at least, what fairly belongs to us.

Anticipating and thanking you foi your support,
I am ut your service,

Eastern portion of this Province, as compensation for tho enormous appropriation made directly I consider, iu tl.e interest of
Coast Constituencies, for which we too have to bear our al.arc of
the burthen. In this connection, 1 may any thai the terms subsidizing the Teslin Lake Railway have my approval as a legitimate business transaction, apart from other considerations, and
which are, first: wbother there is au urgent necessity io build, nt
present, the southern portion of this line, nnd secondly, whether
wo have not been too precipitate in snatching from ihe Dominion
ia    Government, a responsibility   which rightly belongs to it, iu the     ifjp

So Billy Neilson is out as an Independent candidate for political honors?
Sic I A man acting under the instructions of another Mann cannot be independent.
You ��� con run for membership,
Billy, but Yu ��� kon't get there. You
nre not swift enough. Besides we
want a man, not another Mann's tool.
Better givo vour attention tn the sawmill at Beaver and endeavour to make
it pay a dividend. But, perhaps, your
owners think you can earn (?) larger
divide ..Is, as muni M. P. P., in the
shape of Provincial grants or bonuses
to some of their pet schemes.
Do you remember Billy, in the summer of'94, undertaking to show a cor
tain man how to make a horse pull a
loaded boxcar? You mounted the
horse: the horse baulked, and you���
well, to say the least, felt very uncomfortable. Your feelinus then, were not
to bo compared with what they will be
after the political horse bucks and
throws you off. Better dismount Billy,
while there is yet time. Why did you
not, after promising your support to
W. C. Wells, Btand by your word, and,
at least, retain the respect of the community? You would not then, be made
io feel so small, by being greeted everywhere, with the shout "Hurrah I for
Wells,! "
Do not place too much confidence in
tho redoubtable Colonal, Billy. It may
feel very nice to bo t. e travelling companion of such an illustrious gentleman
but, " pride always'oomes before a fall."
The Colonel, too, will be watched a
little closer than in '94, and it will not
prove so easy a task to " hire " aobnts
as at that time. The Colonel's sent in
