SIR CHARLES TUPPER
Addresses a Crowded House
Tuesday Night.
STILL  HAS  PLENTY  OF  FIGHT
In Him���Spoke an Hour and a Half
to an Appreciative Audience.
Daly Also Speaks.
Tho Auditorium was crowded Tuesday
night by an audience anxious to hear
Sir Charles Tupper. It was not an exclusively Conservative audience. There
were as many Grits as Tories and a
large number oi the Labor party present
to hear the man who has been one of
cential figuers in the political world of
Canada for nearly half a century, and
who has contribnted no small part to
the development of her resources.
James Kerr, president of the local Conservative association, occupied the chair
and invited opposition speakers to take
tlie platform. The first speaker introduced was Hon. T. Mayne Dalv, who
spoke for about an hour. Mr. Lowles.
an ex-M. P. for one of the London,
Eng., boroughs, gave a short address on
preferential trade.
The chairman tlien introduced Sir
Charles Tupper who was heartily applauded. He thanked the audience for
greeting him, not as a leader of a great
party, but as a defeated candidate. A
year ago he addressed a meeting in
Greenwood as leader of a party trying
to get into power, but now he had the
advantage of speaking simply as an elector. He felt it a duty to himself to retire from public life and to leave the
guidance of the party in younger hands.
Mr. Daly had appealed to the Conservatives only to support Mr, McKane, but
whoever you may be, you must weigh
carefully the claims of Mr. McKane, irrespective ot party entirely. Consider
carefully theexistingcondition of public
affairs and vote as duty commands.
Every step in advance the country has
made has been the result of Conservative administration. During the nine
years of Liberal administration the progress of the country was a blank. The
three great measures that have made
Canada what she is are Confederation,
the National Policy and the Canadian
Pacific railway. Confederation was
brought about in spite of all the opposition the Liberal party could give.
Britisli Columbia would have been still
��desert but for the Canadian Pacific
railway. The Liberals contributed
nothing but opposition to the grand
scheme of confederation. During the
eighteen years the Liberals were in opposition they boasted that they would
repeal the National Policy when they
got into power. When they did get into
power they saw they would have to
break their promises or rob their country, therefore they adopted the policy of
the Conservative party and threw their
character to the winds.
The Liberals also oppose! the Conservatives in the construction of thu 0.
P. R. The Conservative party believes
strongly in the great natural resources
of this country and realized how a great
railway would open them up. The
Liberal party claim that the prosperity
of to lay is entirely due to them, hut
you cannot find .a single act done by
the Liberals for the best interests of
Canada. Thu one act that they can
take credit for is that when brought face
to face with the question of losing their
characters or saving their country from
ruin, they let their characters go and
saved the country, lie had challenged
Laurier or any of his colleagues to point
out a single promise they had made and
he would name the day and date upon
which they had trampled it underfoot.
No great measure has ever been passed
in Canada that he has not taken part in
and the Liberal party have never been
able to point to a single act in his life
where they could trip him up. They
have been forced to invent stories that
have had no existence. Laurier on
Several occasions remarked that I hsd
said " He is too English fni' mo." That
statement is an absolute falsehood. A
small boy studying the Shorter Catechism was asked to define a lie. He replied : ''A lie is uu abomination unto
the Lord, but a very present help in
time of need " It proves so to Laurier.
A man who will  not keep his  word is
unworthy of the confidence of any voter.
Laurier's idea was to have the Canadian
parliament meet in London instead of
Ottawa. That policy I said then and I
say now is too English for me. We
want the Canadian^ parliament to meet
in Canada.
The Liberal government has increased
the annual expenditure and has added
to the public debt. They boast of an
enormous surplus, but should be
ashamed to admit that they had a surplus, They, should have got rid of it by
lowering the duty on sugar and tobacco.
When in opposition they denounced
giving subsidies to railways, and but
lately   voted $12,000,000 in   that way.
The independent public sentiment of
the country is condemning the government. In Ontario, where the Liberals
had a majority of twelve seats the Conservatives now have a majority of
twenty-two. In Manitoba Sifton boasted
that he would defeat Hugh John Macdonald if it cost $100,000. He is the
only straight Liberal member returned
from that province.
Mr. Berner told the people of Quebec
that Laurier was not to blame for sending troops to South Africa. He only did
so when forced to it by the people. He
is ever ready to eat his own words in
order to keep himself in office.
Touching upon the Independent Labor
party, he said he had long experience
in the house of commons and had yet
to meet a so-called independent member who was not the creature of the
party in power. In 1896 there was a
Patron party They simply became the
bond-slaves of the party in power, and
in the last election they were all left at
home.
When the Conservative party built
the C. P. R., the wealthiest men in
Canada came to the conclusion that the
country's credit would he ruined. The
speaker had persuaded the government
to advance $30,000,000 more in order to
save what the Liberal party had lost.
Someone in Ihe audience asked if it
would not have been better for the government to have owned the C. P. R.
than to have let it remain in private
hands. Sir Charles in reply referred to
the Intercolonial railway to prove the
contrary.
While acting as secretary of state a
delegation had waited upon him from
the government bureau of printing, asking for an eight hour day, and it had
been immediately granted.
There is no need of an independent
labor party in this constituency, because the Conservative party always
look after the best interests of labor.
The best means by which the unity
of this great empire can be effected is
hy preferential trade which will build
up the colonies and be a great benefit to
the mother country.
The meeting closed with cheers for
Sir Charles Tupper and the Queen.
GALLIHER   MEETING
Liberal   Candidate   Addresses
Electors Last Night.
AN   APPRECIATIVE   AUDIENCE
Was Present  and Made up in Enthusiasm What They Lacked
in Numbers.
EVENING CLASSES,
In view of the proposed opening of
evening classes in the public school
building ou the 10th inst., we again
wish to remind young men and women
of the splendid opportunity now placed
before them. It is no extravagant assertion to say that there should be at
least fifty young people eager and ready
to enter at once for the lull live months'
course. The work will be Hysteumtic,
| vigorous nnd thorough. For particulars apply to 1). Mel). Hunter, city.
LIBERAL   ASSOCIATION.
The Greenwood Liberal association
held its annual meeting in the city hall
on Wednesday evening hist. President
T. J. Hardy occupied the chair. The
The only business of importance transacted was the election of officers. President Hardy was renominated for the
position, but from business reasons was
forced to decline and J. R. Brown was
elected to the office. C. Scott Galloway-
was unanimously elected vice-president,
and W. S. Keith, secretary-treasurer.
Mayor Hardy was made honorary
president of the association and a member of the executive committee.
"LEST WE FORGET."
Ladies of Canada:
The bond of union between the mother
country and her colonies is strong. In
time of necessity tlib colonies have always been loyal. Patriotic Canadian
Indies, while tliey Can not bear arms in
time of war, can assist their brother
colonists in a substantial way. Ceylon
nnd India produce the finest GREEN
teas. Drinkers of Japan teas should try
them. .Monsoon, Salada and Blue Kib-
bon packets are known to all.���Colonist.
It was not a very large audience which
greeted W. A. Galliher at the Auditorium last night, but what they lacked
in numbers they certainly made up in
enthusiasm. One reason for there not
being a large attendance was the fact
the St. Andrews and Caledonian society
were holding their annual dinner in
honor of Scotland's patron saint.
J. R. Brown, president of the Greenwood Liberal association, occupied the
chair, and after inviting opposition
speakers to take the platform, made a
short speech pointing out legislation
passed by the Liberal governmentfavor-
able to workingmen, after which he introduced Mr. Galliher.
Mr. Galliher said this was his third
visit to Greenwood and was amazed at
its r.<pid growth since his first visit upwards of a year ago. He was late in
getting round to this part of the district
owir.g to the large area over which he
had to travel in order to reach the electors, and still there were many parts of
the district which he was unable to
reach. He hoped that after the census of
1891 had been taken the district would
be divided into three constituencies.
He had found it hard to work up any
enthusiasm owing to the fact that the
country had gone Liberal and people
believed that as a matter of course the
district would also go"Liberal. He
wished his supporters to not lie overconfident, but to work actively aud
earnestly until the last vote was polled.
THE TARIFF (U'KSTION
After a brief appeal to the supporters
of the Liberal party in this city to keep
up their interest in his behalf he entered into a discussion of a few of the
principal issues of the recent campaign
that ended in the return to power of the
government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. He
showed that during the eighteen years
the Conservatives held the reigns, from
1878 to 1890, during which a high protective policy was in force, the trade of
the country amounted to $(i(>,000,000,
while under the tariff policy of the
present government, from the end of
that period up to tlie present the returns showed the volume of business to
be $85,000,000. In other words, during
four years it had increased to the enormous amount of $20,000,000. This, the
speaker thought, was surely keeping
the pledge made by the Liberals when
asking for the suffrages of the people in
18!)(i. To the Conservatives claim that
the Liberals had in reality made no
change in tbe tariff as adopted by them,
he pointed out that in the readjustment
of the tariff a large number of articles
that heretofore paid a revenue were now
admitted free of duty, an ( that on some
200 other articles the tariff had been
reduced. While in each individual case
the reduction might be small, in the aggregate it amounted to a figure approximating $4,500,000 to the consumers.
Taking it on a basis that Canadian manufacturers produced an equal amount
with that imported, they would he compelled to reduce their prices from what
they formerly sold their articles nt under
the old high protection tariff in order to
meet competition nnd sell their product,
j so that this reduction amounted to a fur-
'��� ther $4,500,000, milking a total saving
directly and indirectly to the consumer
1 of $9,000,000, on a basis of $1.50 per head
for each man, woman and child iu the
Country, He did not think that, us
charged by the Conservatives, this
was the same old suit of clothes, hut if it
was it had been bo much altered that
the opposition party would hardly
recognize it.
PREFERENTIAL TABPP,
Taking up the preferential tariff in
favor of the importation of goods from
Great Britain, which amounted to a reduction of 33 1-8 per cent below the
regular tariff, Mr. Galliher said the Conservatives had raised the cry that Canada was receiving nothing in return for
this favor granted the Mother country.
But he thought an examination of this
question would more than show the
benefits this country was receiving at
the hands of England. He instanced
that before the Laurier government
came into power our market in England
was a poor one, especially for such commodities as cheese, butter, grain, etc.
But owing to the stand the government
had taken in reducing the tariff in favor
of Great Britain, the motherland had
reciprocated, as was shown bv the fact
that today Canada had there its best
market, for the products mentioned,
i Referring to statistics, he showed that
I during the administration of the Con-
seivatlve party for eighteen years our
trade with Great Britain had amounted
to only $20,000,000, while during the
four vears of Liberal administration it
had amounted to $32,5000,000. This, he
thought, was a justification of the pref
erential tariff, as also bearing witness
that the Liberal party hi i carried out
its pre election pledges.
U.C AHA STINK RESTRICTIONS.
Ho also pointed to the fact that previous to the government coining into
power there was practically no trade between Oanada and the   United States in
cattle, horses, etc., owing to the quarantine that existed. These regulations
had been a hindrance to the expansion
of trade in this direction, and so had by
mutual agreement between the two governments been abolished and the sum
of $4,250,000,000 added to the trade
growth of this country.
RAILROAD TOPICS,
The railroad policies of the two par
ties next came up for examination. Tin-
speaker, while believing that it was in
many cases necessary by judicious expenditure of money to bonus railways,
was strongly opposed to giving away
large grunts of arable lands, as was done
hy the Conservatives in order to secure
the building of the Canadian Pacific
railway. He thought that the granting
of immense tracts of country was detrimental to its rapid settling up, as tbe
railway companies, having the pick of
the land, naturally took which was the
best���the arable���leaving the worst for
the settler. Again he pointed out that
the Conservative party held no restrictions over the C. P. R. as to freight and
passenger rates, while the Liberals,
when aiding the construction of railways, expressly stipulate that the government should have a say in this matter. This he claimed, and rightly so,
was a protection to the taxpayers, making the railway companies not the masters of the people by reason of imposing
exorbitant rates, J but the servants of
the people. Another feature the Liberals had introduced in granting railway
charters was to compel those owning the
charters to permit parallel roads running powers over their lines, citing, as u
ease, the Crows Nest branch, where tbe
Bedlington road was enabled to use u
portion of its Hue. Tho, Intercolonial
railway gave the speaker an opportunity to extol the services rendered this
country by the Hon. .Mr. Blair, minister of railways, who he said had been
returned to power over a most popular
leader of the opposition forces in St.
John by a majority of 1,070, proving
that his conduct of this important department of the government had been
most acceptable, not only to his own
constituents, but to tho country ..t
large. The Intercolonial railway for
years had been a bugbear in tbe bands
of the Conservative administration, entailing year after year u big deficit to be
met from the public treasury. This
state of affatrs had been happily altered
und the roud was a profit-paying institution to the tune of $115,000 for last
year, after paying expenses in connection wits its completion into Montreal;
the purchase of additional rolling stuck
and a much larger salary list.
He dismissed the subject of Increased
expenditure uf public moneys in a few
words, by proving from statistics that
while the expenditure wns larger I ban
under Conservative administration, it
was a necessity as the outcome of the
tremendous trade growth oi" the
country. Though the Conservatives had
charged the government with an increased expenditure they could not
prove that it was unwisely or corruptly
spent. While on the other hand, instead of having u yearly deficit of $500,-
000, the legacy left by tbe former officeholders, there wus u surplus of $8,000.0110.
Comtng down to the question of n
more or less local nature, the speaker
took up tbe vexed one of the Chinese.
He registered an emphatic protest
against Celestials being admitted to this
country, on the ground that thev did
not intermarry or assimilate with other
classes, and that, when they had made
their pile they vent back to the Lund
ot the Rising Sun and the country was
little benefitted by their presence Slid
greatly hurt by the constant withdrawal
of tbe money thev took home with
them. He defended Sir Wilfrid Laurier
in not being able lo secure a $500 poll
tax, as both l.iberrl and Conservative
members from constituencies in Eastern
Canada voted against the measure, on
the plea in many cases that tbey would
lose their seats if they refused to vote
according to the dictates of petitions
presented to them by the clergy of the
east, who were opposed to the higher
tax.
As tbe chairman had spoken ut some
length on questions apertaining to labor
Mr. Galliher did not go into the subject,
merely urging upon workingmen to vote
for the i andidnte of the party who had
done most for them in procuring legislation for their benefit. He pointed out
that as British Columbia bad only six
members it was belter for them Unit
the member for Yale-Curihoo district
should be in the confidence of the government rather than apposed to it.
Mr. Galliher closed his address in a
scathing denunciation of the Conservative candidate. He regretted that personalities had been Introduced into the
contest hy Mr. McKane, whom he had
always considered his personal friend.
He admitted his signature to a certain
petition for the suspension, not repeal,
of the eight-hour law. He signed it as
the vice-president of the Dundee Mining company. For this the Conserva
five candidate had most savagely attacked him, stating at a meeting at
Kainlaops. that lie. Galliher, while ostensibly posing as the friend of lahor.
was stubbing labor in tbe buck liken
political Judos, lie thought tbis was
not a friendly remark. He asked his
bearers to believe that he was consistent
on this subject. He was not opposed to
the eight-hour law, as at the request of
the Miners' unions he had drawn up a
petition to the   provincial  government.
which bad been circulated and signed
here, praying that there should be no
reopening of the question, This he
thought should prove that he wns not
the Judas pictured   bv  his opponent.
On the other bund be branded the Con-
servetive standard-bearer as being a
traitor to his country, in bringing forward in this constituency the race cry.
In graphic language he eulogized the
Liberal leader. Sir Wilfrid Laurier. as u
true patriot, a loyal subject and a good
Statesman, He closed bis address with
an appeal for bis election to the bouse
of commons. The meeting closed with
cheers for the Queen. '
CHURCH CARNIVAL.
The grand two-days' carnival held in
the Auditorium by the Episcopalians,
terminated with a ball on Thursday
evening, and from start to finish wus n
complete success. Nearly ull the fancy
articles exposed for sale were taken
away to decorate the barren apartment
of some WOUld-be benedict or to be presented by such person to some blushing,
husband-wishing spinster.
While the sales were progressing very
interesting entertainments were being
given on the stage. Some oi the songs
were meant for local skits upon prominent citizens, and although catchy, they
were, in the opinion of many of the audience, a little bit rough for a church
affair.
The hest portion of the entertainment
was the play entitled " Caste System,"
in which a severe blow was given to the
vulgar habit of certain classes of pulling
too much dependence upon ancestry and
family connections, instead of brains
und common sense, to give them u position in socinl life. This particular piay
was probably given as a gentle reminder
to some of the would-be leaders of social
functions in Greenwood, and it is to be
hoped that it will prove beneficial. Dr.
Schon, as Mr. Spriggins, was iu his element und his handling of the shoe
brush showed that be was no novice in
tbe business.
Mr. Hill, as Victor DuBois, was a
typical jumpiim frenchman, both Inok-
and acting his part well. Mc. Ashcroft,
as bluff Major Rattan, was a veritable
Lord Kitchener in his handling of poor
old Mr. Spriggins. While Mrs. Atwood,
Mrs. Farrow, Mrs. Smythe and Miss
Schon made a favorable impression in
the rendering of their respective parts.
The carnival closed with a dance,
which was voted as successful us the
preceding portion of tbe programme.

<UNION.-fl?j/llAhi I
SATURDAY; DECEMBER 1. 1900,
The following] in reference to the
West Fork wagon rond is copied from
the Midway Advance: "Under the
management which existed up to the
time of the government calling a halt,
the proposed Canadian mint would not
turn out enough coin of the realm to
meet the expenses incurred by the innumerable high-salaried bosses and
their 'subs' in charge of the work.
There were more preliminaries in connection with the grading of these few
miles of road than in building the C. P.
H. from ocean to ocean. A casual observer traveling from Westbridge to
Beaverton would immediately arrive at
the conclusion that some highly bonused
railway was being built for the purpose
of giving the officials' relations a job.
They would never imagine, not even in
their wildest moments, that a wagon
road with the modest sum of $8,000 behind it, would have pit rchasing agents,
waited upon by e: ony-colored waiters,
and whose chief duties are to kill time
and to send large orders for goods to
supply the few workingmmi und their
numerous overseers. It, is not. a difficult
mutter to account fur the total failure
of the West Fork roud. We huve only
to point to the over-ollicious Greenwood
hourd of trade, which mude itself ridiculous by thwarting the efforts of Mr.
Thruston, who, had he been left, alone,
would in all probability have, ere this,
completed the road for the $8,000.''
Bekohe another issue of the Miner tbe
electors of Yale-Cariboo will have decided who will be their representative.
Personally there is very little difference
in the three candidates. Mr. Galliher
is a Canadian, Mr. McKane a Scotchman, and Mr. Foley has been so long
an American that he reasons politically
from the American standpoint. Mr.
Foley never was a possibility in the
campaign, so it is hardly worth while
discussing him us a future member of
parliament. Mr. Wilkes, while here
last week, could give no encouragement
to the friends of Mr. Foley. This being
the case, the unionist who votes for Mr.
Foley would simply he disfranchising
himself. The other two candidates are
on a par. One of them opposed the
eight-hour law openly, and the other
supported it openly but secretly signed
a petition to the government for its repeal. So, from the unionist standpoint,
there is no choice between  the two can-

THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY MINER.
TBE FOLEY MEETING
A Large Audience Greets the
Labor Candidate.
A LONG AND TIRESOME SPEECH
In Which No New Economic Problems Were Treated, and the Old
Ones Badly Mixed.
The Auditorium was well filled Tuesday night to hear Chris Foley and Jas.
Wilkes. The speech of Mr. Foley was
original in many ways���original in expression, original in its illustrations,
original in its conclusions, and decidedly
original in syntax. A new departure
was the glee club, which added much
to counteract the depression caused by
Mr. Foley's very long declamation. Mr.
J. J. Caulfield. the chairman, said it
gave him very much pleasure to preside
at the first meeting held in Greenwood
by the Independent Labor party. After
a political chorus by the glee club, the
chairman introduced the Independent
Labor candidate:
Mr- Foley said that it gave him great
pleasure to address a Greenwood audience on political questions from the
standpoint of a workingman. The last
meeting he had addressad in Greenwood was remarkable for the number of
yellow-legged dudes who were present.
He would tonight enunciate principles
that would probably shock many of his
hearers. He had for years been devoting much time to study along socialistic
lines and had come to the conclusion
that no methods adopted by either of
the old parties would ever give ultimate
satisfaction. Heretofore the old parties
had been a drawback to human progress. Independent action has been
forced upon the workingman. We have
tried to remedy the evils for years but
have always been met with promises
that have never been fulfilled. Labor
% must now organize in the attempt to reform the government of this country.
He referred to the government of the
United States being now controlled
by capitalists and pointed out that
Canada was rapidly approaching the
same crisis, but we have not yet advanced to that stage -and by the united
effort of labor may yet be saved. In
order to succeed wo must have recourse
to independent legislation. The laborer
at present is not receiving a just share
of what he produces. Labor is in the
majority and is therefore entitled to protection against any foreign race brought
into the country. The mechanical ingenuity during the last forty years has
revolutionized working methods, but
the profits have all gone into the pockets
of capital. Not satisfied with that they
urge upon the government to introduce
into the country a cheap class of labor.
This is opposed to both justice and
common sense It has prevented the
forward course 01 many nations in the
past. China, Turkey and Russia have
all suffered from this. These countries
are now uh a result undeveloped. In
Germany and England, on thecontrary,
the resources of the country are fully
developed. Mexico and and the South
American countries have cheap labor
and they have remained in the same
state for the last three hundred years.
The United States and Canada have
progressed, but must beware of the
curse of cheap labor. The general conditions of this country at present show
everywhere houses overstocked with
what labor has produced, and still we
are poor and our women go hungry.
This condition of affairs must have something rotten in its makeup. The time
has arrived when we must do something
to remedy these evils. The capitalists
are scouring other countries for cheap
labor. The military power has been
handed over to the capitalists, while
alien races have been brought in to replace our workingmen They say that
if the military power is used for that
purpose it is the laboring men's fault.
That is po, but the military power
should be used for all alike, both prince
and pauper. That is the cause for which
the Independent Labor party is working today. In many parts of the country labor dare not combine in unions.
In many cases we dare not take ah independent stand for fear of losing our
jobs. A government which cannot prevent this state of affairs is unfit to have
control of the country. Then there is
the evil of company stores and boarding
houses, where men are forced to trade
and board. After the passage of the
Truck act many of them were forced to
abandon this method but are now keeping it up in an underhand way. The
importation of cheap labor must result
in great harm to business men. I have
always been opposed to violence, but
there is sometimes just excuse for it. It
is a mistaken  idea to suppose that hy
means of boycots, strikes, etc., a change
can be effected. The only sure way is
to capture political power.
Turning our attention to the two old
parties, the candidates for the Conservative party have been telling you that
they are the only friends of labor. It is
the same old cry that has been going up
through all the ages in every country.
They claim that the Conservatives have
built up the country, but no one party
can lay claim to that. They claim that
the protection tariff has done much
good for the countrp and that it has for
its object the protection of all alike,
rich and poor, but capital has reaped
the sole benefit from it. They have encouraged immigration of Japanese labor
and have gradually reduced wages until
uow wages can go no lower If we never
had a protective tariff we would have
been better off today. Wages have been
pulled down to the same level with the
cheap labor that has been brought in.
It has resulted in amassing wealth for
the few and has enabled them to levy
tribute on every commodity consumed.
The government should reserve to itself
the right to control these conditions,
but both parties have refused to do so.
They constructed the C. P. R. and built
up the western country and then handed
the country over to the C. P. R. They
gave the C. P. R. $25,000,000 incash and
large tracts of land which is free from
taxation in perpetuity. The Conservatives imported 8,000 Chinamen to work
on the C. P. R. and then turned them
loose on the community. They drove
white men out of the sawmills and the
canning factories and now even here in
the interior we are troubled with them.
In Vancouver I tried to obtain employment in the sawmill and was offered $30
a month, I realized that I could not live
on this, so I had to come out here to
work in a mine. This evil will continue
until the government takes steps to stop
it, cheap labor from China and Japan
will drive you east over the Rockies
where you will meet coming westward a
flood of cheap immigrants from Europe.
Laurier has imported the offscourings
from all the countries in Europe You
will be reduced to the conditions that
obtain in those countries from whence
these men came. In order to check
this we must have recourse to legislation and labor and business should combine to do so. ,
The Conservative party occupies the
position of a dead man. They filled the
senate with a lot of old mossbacks who
have resolved to oppose the claims of
of labor. They pronounce the sentence
of damnation on any measure to be
passed for the benefit of the working
man, but they are dead and I don't feel
justified in spending more time on
them.
Some accuse me of having been brought
out by T. Mayne Daly for the purpose
of splitting the Liberal vote. All the
labor legislation the Liberals have put
through was simply for the purpose of
catching votes. The alien labor act is
as useless as a cow's tail to a locomotive.
The only time it is brought into use is
before an election. In Kootenay the
min ers went out on a legitimate strike
which lasted eight or nine months. The
mine owners sent to Michigan for cheap
lobor, which wns shipped to Idaho.
From there they were shipped to Kaslo
and sent on to the mines. Delegates
were sent to Laurier by the miners asking him to enforce the alien labor law
For four months they were unable to
get anything done, so that the men
were compelled to surrender unconditionally. The moment the smoke of
battle cleared away Mr. Laurier sent
Mr. (.'lute over to investigate. He had
instructions to tell the mine owners that
any further importation of cheap labor
would not be permitted. He referred at
some length to the salmon canning industry on the Fraser, going fully into
the particulars of the strike, the importation of Japs to take the place of
the white fishermen, and the calling out
of the militia. There were papers issued
to 3,500 Japs. The government agents
knew that there were not that number
entitled to naturalization. The strike
occurred and the canners refnsed to
compromise. Japs were instantly employed and 3,500 citizens of this country
were driven to seek emyloyment elsewhere. The Laurier government never
uttered a word against all this. They
should have brought these men to justice for issuing these papers and should
have enforced the alien labor law for
the benefit of the strikers. With reference to the Chinese question, Mr.
Laurier pledged himself that he would
he guided by the representatives from
British Columbia. They insisted on a
$500 tax, but the tax was only increased
$50 per head, Laurier said he interviewed Mr. Chamberlain who suggested
the Natal act be applied.
The chartei for the Kettle Valley
railroad was disallowed by the government. That was not a friendly act
towards the people of this district and
shows what power the C. P. R. has over
the government. On the Crow's Nest
Pass railway some of the worst of crimes
were committeed against the working-
men. It was proved that some of the
C. P. K. officials were criminals and
should now be serving long terms in
penitentiary, but the resignation of one
official was all that took place.
Mr. Koley also spoke of the land
monopoly in the Okanagan, after which
Mr. Wilkes made a brief speech.

tioned in connection with the coming
contest for the mayoralty. I feel sure,
lifter talking with a large number of the
electors, that the general feeling in tlie
city is that it would be more to its interests if both these names were dropped
nnd an independent non-partiscan person were chosen for the position. We
have had enough of the Hoss-Hardy
light to satisfy the Greenwood electorate
for several years to come. Each side
should he about through with the abuse
ami backbiting of its enemy. They
should no longer call each other by evil
and offensive names, nor should they
care longer to have thei good deeds
misinterpreted Partisanship should be
dime away with and  factionism should
ceaae, and the way for this to be accomplished is for the electors to shelve
the leaders of both factions. Yours respectfully, Voter.

SMITH & McRAE
CQRBESPONDENCE.
To the Editor: 1 would like the use
of a small portion of space in your valuable paper to express my views, which
I believe coincide with the views of a
large number of the intelligent electors
of (ireenwood on the ill-spirited contention between Mayor Hardy and the
Times over municipal affairs.
Two years ago, at the election of a
city council, Mr. Ross saw fit to oppose
Mr. Hardy in the contest, which, if
fairness had been displayed, he had a
perfect right to do, but the antagonism
developed into a purely personal affair
and has heen kept up as such ever since.
Mayor Hardy's actions, ever since he
has occupied the position of chief magistrate, may not have shown that fairness
to all which would win for him the commendation of the electors. He may
have, like his brother mayor of Nelson,
given indications that he would like to
be the whole council, and his action
during municipal litigation may have
been the cause of putting the city to
considerable unnecessary expense, and
the newspapers of the city have an unquestioned right to point out such deficiencies to the council and to the taxpayers, who are the ones directly concerned, but tor Mr. Ross to appoint, himself the legal adviser of the council
it presumptions and for his antagonism
to culminate in a contemptible attack,
as it did in a lute issue of the Times,
upon she grammatical accomplishments
of the mayor, is proof conclusive of-his
inability to occupy the position of municipal critic.
The names of both Duncan Ross and
T.  J. Hardy have already  been  men-
