Hurrah ! The Liberals Sweep The Dominion
HERALD A6APN
EHTRAPS IB. GOODEVE
His StanmenU Regarding Japanese C lony
Without Foundation-Positive Denial
from Hon. Frank Oliver.
(Cranbn.ok Herald.)
Mr. Goodeve, for a man who is candidate for such an important position
as that of member of parliament, has
been the most unfortunate in the reckless statements he has made regarding
the record of the Liberal party so far
as it effects the laboring man. ( Last
week the Herald found it necessary to
correct a statement made by Mr. Goodeve regarding the amendment of the
railway act. As was shown by the
Herald, without reason and without authority. Mr. Goodeve made an appeal
to the prejudices of the railway men of
Cranbrook. hoping thereby to gain their
favor and perhaps some votes. When
the Herald exposed Mr .Goodeve it proved a bombshell in the Conservative
camp and great haste was made to
place that gentleman right before the
public, Telegrams were huriedly sent
to him by the local committee and an
attempt made at an explanation thru'
the medium of the Prospector, they not
forgetting by way of explanation, to
indulge in the customary abuse of the
Herald. It would have been far better
for Mr. Goodeve and for the Conservative party if the explanation which
was prepared and printed had never
appeared. Those of all parties who
had read it laugh at the idea that Mr
Goodeve was dealing fairly with the
proposition. Some have said, and rightly so, that if Mr. Goodeve was sincere
in his statement that he intended no
misrepresentation why then has he not
sent a letter to the press of the Koot-
enays, stating that he was wrong, that
Sir Wilfred Laurier and the Liberal
party had passed the amendment without a dessenting vote, that there was in
reality no politics in the proposition and
that the amendment was supported unanimously by the members of both
parties. Furthermore, if Mr. Goodeve
was honest in this ma'ter, why has he
not publicly stated on the platform that
he misrepresented this proposition in his
speech at Cranbrook and that he regretted the matter very much, indeed.
Has he done this? Not in one single
instance has he shown a desire to make
mends for the bad break at Cranbrook.
But this is not all, Mr. Goodeve stood
on the platform at Cranbrook and vitu-
ally witb tears coursing downjhis cheeks
demoaned the fact that the Laurier government thought so little of the Anglo-
Saxon race as to encourage the settlement of a colony of Japanese in Al
berta. Mr. Goodeve said to that big
audience that he had in the auditorium
in Cranbrook, "Do you want J. panesei
to be tilling the soil cf the West?', Is
this the kind of immigration that the
west is looking for? Do you want the
little brown man to settle upon your
lands instead of the white man?" And
then following the course pursued by
the Conservatives in British Columbia.
Mr. Goodeve made a characteristic
appeal to his large audience for a white
British Columbia and a white Canada.
Was Mr, Goodeve honest in this? Or
was he appealing to the prejudices of
the people, the same as he did In misrepresenting the amendment to the railway act? Mr. Goodeve must stand on
his record the same as the Laurier government must stand on its. Knowing
as it did the feeling of the west aa to
Japanese immigration, Mr. Goodeve
evidently was of the opinion that votes

Cock-a-doodle-doo!
The Liberals have won.
The country is safe for another term
at least.
Monday the people of Canada pledged renewed confidence in Sir Wilfred
Laurier, and ihe request that he be
allowed to finish his work was granted.
Locally there was little excitement;
that Laurier would be sustained was
never doubted  by  the  Liherals, and
hin ihs returns began to tome in and
the sweep of,victory, was made evident
it was taken as a matter of tojrce;
nor did tne local opposition show any
chagiiii. At fhe most they expected,
oa- hoped, to effect a very marked re-
auction in the Liberal majority, but
having ia led in that, the situation w< 8
•iccep.eu quietly.
In t.ie < o umbia Hall there was an
eager crowd assembled all evening
awa.cing announcement of the results.
Profound regret was manifest when the
defeat of Melnnis, Jardine, Smith and
Templuinaii became evident,
ihe latest returns received this
morning indicate a majority of Liberals
in the hi use of about 50. All the
ministers are returned but Templeman, '.there will be 221 members in
the new house, as against 214 in the
aust parliament.

tbe prejudices of the people by a
wilful misrepresentation of the facts.
What is the real truth in regard to
this matter? This is what the electors
demand and that ia what they have a
right to receive. It is this: A number of Japanese, through an agent in
Vancouver, made application to purchase certain landa in Alberta through
the C. P. R., but, and mark you the
real truth: THE DOMINION GOVERNMENT REFUSED TO AGREE
TO THK ENTRY OF JAPANESE
COLONISTS AS BEING CONTRARY
TOTHE AGREEMENT WI. H JAPAN
This goes to show that Mr. Goodeve
wan will.ng to make any kind of a statement on the platform that he imagines
will arouse the feeling of prejndice
against the Laurier government.

ENGINE DIICHEO
Shortly after 8 o'clock on Monday
night a work train which was comi \g
down the grade at the big Hill, at
Field, slipped, and in spite of the brakes
rapidly gained momentum and crashed
into No. 'i safety switch when the engine and caboose were derailed.    For
tunately no one wan hurt, Engineer
Daniels and his firemen managing to
get clear in time, Alth ugh a serious
wreck might have resulted, the damage
however, is not considerable, except to
th>- caboose, which was smashed.
THE FIELD TUNNEL
Expect Work to  Be  Completed  Early
Next  Year.
Advices from Field state that all outside work in connection with the reduction of the Big Hill grade at Field
would be completed inside of the next
three or four weeks. At the present
time some 600 men are employed there
but this force will shortly be much reduced. It is expected that the entire
work will be completed about Februaiy
next. Hospita. arrangements have, of
course, been for the une of the men on
the work, for which they pay at the
rate of one dollar per month. There is
a doctor and assistant doctor in charge
and one nurse to look after any who
may be injured, or otherwise require
medical attention. There is accommodation for 15 patients.

In pursuance of their campaign of

arrangement with the brand iruntt

at ti.e ciose of the ele. tions, tne

coming into the country would be
removed, and hordes of Japanese

government had already Sent an

When the Editor of the "Golden
Star" was using his shears last week
in taking clippings from the Conservative newspapers to make up his
weekly dish of cold hash, how was it
that he missed this little "tit-bit" from
one of the leading Conservative newspapers in Canada. Perhaps it was because there was too much truth in it
to suit the political palate of the
Amalgamated Company of Newspaper
Adventurers owning the "Golden Star."
However it is quite interesting reading, coming as it does from a Conservative source, and so we give it to our
readers:
Winnipeg—An impartial survey
of the political situation in the three
prairie provinces shows that while
the Liberals ar>- likely to lose
ground in Manitoba they are so
strongly entrenched in the two new
provinces ahat they may carry sixteen out of twenty-sever, seats, as
against fourteen out of twenty in
the old house, and they may take
one or two more at present in' the
doubtful class.
In Manitoba it is conceded the
Conservatives will hold their seats
of Souris and Marquette, while for
the Liberals, .sifton in Brandon,
Crawford in Portage la Prairie, and
Jackson in Selkirk are likely to be
elected. Burrows however will be
beaten by Glen Campbell in Dauphin, the latter being an exceedingly strone local candidate, havjng
resigned from the legislature to
run, while Burrows is seriously
weakened by the sale of the vast
timber limits he is accused of obtaining from an easy going minister of
the interior. This same cause will
militate against Turiff in East As-
siniboia, where, if the Conservatives
heal their differences, R.L. Richardson of the Winnipeg Tribune
should win out.
To return to Manitoba, Proven-
cher is likely to go back to its old
allegiance and elect ex-Member
LaRi/iere. The Conservatives also
stand a good chance to win Lisgar,
Hon, Thomas Greenway's old seat.
They are thus fairly sure of five,
and may win six, as against three
Liberal seats, compared with seven
Liberal and three Cons.rvat.ve
seats last election.
'Ihe tenth seat is in Wi npeg,
and here it is impossible to forecast
the result. Both parties are work-'
ing hard, and the issue is confused
by the intrusionof a fcoti list candidate, but the bulk of the labor vote
will be cast amng party lines, and
the result depencs on the heavy
foreign vote in the Nonh End. and
neither side is likely to spare any
effort to corral this.
Coming to Saskatchewan, Richardson has a good chance in East Assini-
boia. while Lake should hold Qu'-
Appelle, as no riding could have a
better representative, but his
opponent, J. T. Brown, Haultain'a
late lieutenant, is an experienced
campaigner. It looked as if the
Conservatives had a certainty on
Prince Albert until the election
there was postponed for one week
which action is ascribed by partisans to an astute trick of Senator
Davis to save his home constituency
for the party. Regina is looked on
as a doubtful seat. Moose Jaw,
Saltcoats, Saskatoon, Humboldt,
Mackenzie and Battleford are expected to go for the government,
especially so soon after the successful provincial campaign, and the
Opposition will probably not get
more than two, Prince Albert joining, in due course, the winning
side.
In Alberta Oliver will carry his
own seat and the other, three
northern constituencies, but the
Opposition wil win either Leth-
bridge or Macleod, and possibly both.

TIMELY    QUESTION.
With the return of the Shooting
Season, there is one question many a
father will have to face: "Papa, may
I have a gun this year?" .
One father will say "Yes;" another
"Wait till you're ten;" another, "Wait
till you're twelve;" another perhaps,
fouiteen. 	
For our part we would say, "Let
him have it when he's ten; or if he has
developed ahead of his age, perhaps a
a little earlier.
ihere are countless men to-day who
began to shoot about as soon as they
.ad strength enough to raise a gu.i t<
their shoulders. Almost without exception such ure men of quick decision,
ac ion and assurance. The gun has i
great deal to do with fostering these
i three qualities, and we say begin  >'
early. [>•■••

Others have sprung up imitations, but
they were irreverent ond impure, and
they failed. In these days of progressive thought, play-wrights and
theatrical managers think it necessary
for the financial success of a play to introduce immoral scenes to cater to the
morbid and depraved tastes of the
vicious, thus profaning even the sacred
themes of the Bible.

Edmonton, Alta., Oct, 27.-An
coormouB project of railway expansion in western Canada, including
British Columbia is planned by the
Canadian Pacific railway, ft^ has already been ratified by the board of
directors. Details leaked out on the return hereof Mr. John His.up, an engineer who had charge of four different
survey parties in the north this season.
The company purposes building a
branch six hundred miles north of
Edmonton to Great Slave Lake, the
centre 6T an agricultural country Baid
to rivajjtbe best section of Alberta and
Saskatchewan. At Sturgeon Lake,
two hundred miles south of Great Slave
Lake, another branch—really a main
line—will run through the Peace River
district and traversing the Pine River
Pass will cross the Rockies and striking
the Fraser River will follow it for hundreds of miles. The objective is either
Kamloops or Ashcroft. It is stateu
that the company may also extend this
line westerly from northern Cariboi
to a point on tidewater midway be*
tween Vancouver and Prince Rupert.
This featnre of the plan a, however, h. a
not yet been definitely decided,
The various survey parties in the field
this season made reconnaisance surveys
and gathered invaluable data respect
ing the resources of the various regiora
along the proposed route, It is regarded as likely that a start on railway
construction on the line north of Edmonton will be commenced next spring.
