TO    THE   ELECTORS    OF
YALE-KOOTENAY,
Gexti.kwen,-Owing to important
proposals having lieen made by the
Dominion Government throiiRh the
Imi'crial Gover'um'ont, to tho United
Slates, with u view of forming a
treaty covering trade und oilier relations botween tho two countries,
and that the people may have
c.n opportunity of expressing
their views upon those proposals.
Parliament has been dissolved, and
you nro now oallsd upon to select a
representative to the House of Commons. Tile mo-it importantquestiou
that has occupied the attention of
the Administration nud Ihe Hdnse
of Commons for se>oral years pist
and probably the moat important
one that will como be'ore the now
lloUs.), in our trad.! relations with
our neighbors. In seoking your
suffrages at tho last general election
I st-ited, "I should favor a reei-
" proey treaty with tho United
"States that would inclule the
" products of British Columbia, bat
" would oppose auy modification
"of (he tariff which should have a
" tendeuoy towards free trade, so
���' long as onr neighbors keep their
" markets closed against ns by high
" protective duties."
The question now eomos before us
in a definite form, Shall we adhere
to (ho National Policy, nuder which
Canada 1ms prospered, and endeavor
to secure a treaty wiih tho U.iiteii
States that will be fair to btttb
countries, or shall we, on the other
hand, accept Unrestricted Reciprocity as ailt-nctlted by Mr. Lnurier
and the Reform parly ?���a policy
that can have no other meaning than |
a common tariff for Canada and the I
United Slates against tho rest of the
world, aud one that will bo framed
(it Washington nud not at Ottawa.
I admit that a high protective
tariff falls more heavily on our
Province than any other portion of
Hie Dominion, as we are ooflsdmers
rather than producers, and owing to
(he great distance from the manufacturing centres of Ontario ami
Q'loboo transportation adds materially tc-the cost of goods laid down,
But wo must not forget that we a'o
an integral pai t of tbe Djminion,
und that uo Provinoe has participated
to so great an estent in tho general
prosperity of the hist live years as
ours. We must ulso boar in mind,
that without a protective tariff
Canada would uot have had either
the menus or credit to push to completion wilhin so short a timo the
Canadian Pacillo Railway; and without thut work British Columbia
would only bo �� member of the Con-
federation in uatuo. British Columbia covers an immenoo area, our
popnliitian is siuiill and scattoJ, our
mining districts are in many fuses
almost inaccosstible. and our mineral
wealth wiil remain undeveloped
until tho mountain ranges uro
piertied with railways. The burdeu
of railway building is too heavy io be
borne -by tho Provinoe, aud wo
must largely depend on federal aid.
How cau we claim that assistance
unless wo contribute our quota of
taxation ? The Premier iu his
rseeiit address, slates: "We have
" by liberal grants of subsidies pro-
" muted tho building of rail ways
" now becouui an absolute necessity,
" until the whole country is covered
" as with a network,'1
Thin may be the case in tho older
provinces, bnt it in cnrtaiuly not so
ui British Columbia, oxaapt ou
paper
There in, I beliove, an ogilation iu
the eastern provinces iu favor ol an
export duly being placed ou nicklo
ore, und a feeling of alarm in u
portion of this district, lest such a
tax should be impound, 1 do not
apprehend any bueh danger, but
should ihe government contemplate
placing an import of that description
I will certainly oppose it. I would
favor the iluty on lead being increased an toon as our smelters are running, beiug confident that bofore
many ycurB Koolenay will produce
more lead than will be required by
the whole of the Dominion.
lu common with the other members from this province, I oiroiigly
urged upon tlio government the
advisability of placing mining
machinery on the free lift, una
pointed out the advantages that
would aooruo, not only lo British
Columbia but to Ihe wiiole Dominion it' this encouragement wore
olTcred to the miuing Industry. Our
efforts were bo far successful that all
mining machinery not manufactured
in tho Doiniiiiou, is now a.lmittid
free, and 1 am glad to know that
more than one mining company in
Rust and West liootonuy has lakeu
advantage of this concession,
Iu endeavoring bo secure assistance for public works, I have at
lewd beeu partially sivoeessftrl,
During my term1 subsidies w^re
granted to only bwo railways in this
province, one in Yule and tho other
in Kooteuuy. Tho Colniuhia/ river
i above Golden hus'beeu improved1 su
j thdt * mouth, and upwards to tlw
season has br.:h added to steamboat
nnvigition, and work is now being
done below (lie nioutli of the Kootenny, which it is ho'ped will give
navigation on the lowci river a'l the
year ro'u'rfd.
The government decided to establish four Industrial Schools (or
Indians in our province, Two of
theso aro now iu successful operation
iu this district, So thoroughly aro
these iLstitntlonBappreciated by tie
Indians, (hut the Principals and
Indian Agents have difficulty iri
selecting pupils, the number offerii g
being so much greater them there id
aeci'inmoiliitiou fof.
There has been considerable dissatisfaction on accouut of of delavS
that have oooured in extending post
office facilities to outlying districts.
I may say that I havo not been idle
in ttiis matter, and whilst the Tost-
master General has not acceded to
every request as readily as I could
wish, 22 new offices have beeu
opened within the past four years,
with an increase of about 600 miles of
service.
Now, gentlemen, I hope I have
placed Iho issues fairly beforo you,
If you have sufficient confidence in
me to re-elect me, I will us in the
past, give the present government a
generous support, and I will en-
doavor at all times to oarofully
guard your interests.

Breaking the Linv.
The Vietoria Times says: The
preservation of fish from total extermination has beeu one of the aims
of the Dominion Government for
some lime, but iiu;oi'inti:tt(v in
this part of the country there is no
ifficor empowered to enforce the
law, whniti' is consequently broken
with impunity. Complaint is being
made of the useless slanght r I
Binall food fish by the Italian :'.-:.��� r-
meu in this vicinity. 1 lies i cb ips
ure really more destructive .
Chinese, end if allowe 1 ' 3 go on
without restriction, will ���

ally thsy seek to make Canada the
engine ofithe Conservative aristQO-
raoy of Great Britain for averting
the triumph of demooraoj of tho new
world, and keeping part of the
American oontinent under the aristocratic institutions or influence of
thoir party.
Sir John Miicilonalo is chief, and
his wheh policy has been directed
against closer, relations with tho
United Status, Tho Canadian Paci-
fio Ruilway was his destined instrument, though in tho course of events
his'National'railway has been converted into half an American road,
and seems to prove a helpless fight
against nature, For the commercial
question by itself he may be said to
caro comparatively littlo,
Among the people, whatever may
bo s".id of their political bearing
toward the United States, tho desire
for freo trade iu their couutry grows
up;ice. If tho people ure let alone
there can be no doubt that (ho verdict will bo in favor of reciprocity
and against a protectionist govern-
govornment. Iiut Iho poople will
not bo let alone. Tho country has
been governed for 25 years largely
by corruption carried on by moans
of federal subsiJics to tho provinces,
(which our constitution fortunately
permits,) federal grants to local
publio work, concessions to contractors and bribery of all kinds.
These engines will all be plied on
the people whose political  tone has
suhjec-
been sadly lowered by Ion,
lion to their inlltienees.
The Government's majority in the
Into parliament was over 50 on a
division in a bouse of 215 members,
so that the Liberals have considerably leeway to make up. On the
other baud many Govornment seats
were wen at Cue lust election by
small majorities which, if people
wore to vote freely according to their
convictions, tho commercial question
would do doubt bo reversed."
a particle, but with the Imperial
Government it is different. Sir
John iiacdonald and Sir Charles
Tnpper. who are in effect tho Dominion Government have managed
to persuade the Imperial
authorities that a treaty between the
United States nnd Newfoundland
would be detrimental to the interests
of Canada, and so h*r mujaisly's assent is withheld, Wo do not jjnew
iu what principle of equity or fair
play Premier Salisbury justifies his
anomalous position in this respect,
but we know tho moral effect of the
British Government's action in refusing its sanction to this trade
treaty after delegating to our commissioner full power to negotiate
it, will have a damaging influence in
the colonies gouerally on estimates
of the integrity aud honosty of Eng'
lish statesman. What colony will
now care to trust tho British Gov
ornment, in view oi the fiitbless
