Tho gathering nt Sidnoy ou Satur-
tluy wits from every point ol view tt
splohdid success, und the Inauguration of Mr. Shepherd's campaign
cutild not conceivably have boen stalled under happier und moi'O promising auspices. The day was glulious-
ly flno and tlie attondjince waB unprecedented for a political gathering.
Tho large numbers seemed to goner-
ate enthusiasm, nnd to rouse tho
speakers to their highest nights of
eloquence. Over all was tlie spirit
of harmony and of hope, and certain
ly fow candidates have iiiiuio thoir
debut under happier or moro distinguished circumstances nnd none ever
rocoivod a warmer welcome or greater encouragement. - .
Mr. Shepherd, it must be said,
mado a decided hit, nnd filled -mt
the political bill to everybody's satisfaction. His speech wus both adequate t-nd appropriate to tho occasion. It contained a general survey
of the political situation and clearly
enunciated tho issues al stake. Mr,
Shepherd surprised liis best friends
and received the very highest compliments from Premier Mcllrido, Capt.
Tutlow and Mr. A. E. McPhillips.
As a candidate Mr. Shepherd scored
a personal triumph and roused the
fighting spirit of his supporters. Con
fltlcnco is half tlie bottlo and, aftor
Saturday, the Conservatives in this
Constituency will work witli the liveliest hopes of victory.
Those who travelled from Ludysmith nnd Nannimo hnd a pleasurable day's outing at a minimum ex

About 250 from Nnnniino boarded
when sho pulled out from Ladysinith
thoro were 150 more on board. The
triii was very pleasant and good
time was niado both in going and
coming. Unluckily after loafing Ladysmith tho captain of tho City
would not risk tlie narrows and put
out through the Gnp which, of courso
made it late when sho tied up at
Nannimo. Ilut oven thon tho dny Imd
beon so successful, so much hnd been
achieved and so much moro is now
expected that everybody wns still
satisfied.
it wns somowhero round 4 o'clock
whon Mr. Barnard culled upon Mr.
tors. Ho was followed liy Mr, Shepherd, to whose speech und reception

reference hns already been made. A
strong fighting oration next enmo
from Mr. McPhillips, nnd thon Pro
mier Mcliride delivered a snge nnd
eloquent-address. -V fow quiet word!
from Captain Tatlow concluded tho
spcechmuking nnd the gathering dispersed nfter volley on volley of rousing cheers.
In tho sporting events Lndysmith
achieved somo honor. iler juniors
playod a draw with their old rivals
of Viotoria, nnd Mr. W. O. Simpson's
tug-of-wnr tonm broko the prido ot

Tho Lndysmith men looked liko boys

ns it turned out, strength nnd stamina. Almost tho men of Victorin,
hauled them over in the first pull
but onco they caught a footing thoy
hold their bulky antagonists, wore
them down, nnd slowly, inch by Inch
gained first tholr own lost ground
und finally tho pull. In tho second
bout thoy simply liuuled thoir men
ovor tho lino.
Shortly nftor six o'clock all roads

Irojuois wns in from the Islands,
Tho band wns down on tho wharf
and tho visitors hnd a cheery send-
off. Tho duy wns over. Tho campaign had been Inaugurated, the candidate linally tested und enthusiastically approved und it is for individual pnrty members to see thut the
splendid promise of Saturday's great
gathering Is fully realised.
Extracts from Mr. Shepherd's addross rend us follows:
CORRUPTION AT OTTAWA.
"Probably iho most important reason Is, thut the administration -as
bocotuo lnx and allowod irregularities to creep Into the departments
contrary to all preconceived Ideas ol
purity of administration and good
government. This became so pronounced thnt a commission wa* appointed to probe these charges to tho
bottom anil this commission evidently went further thun the government intended thut it should, for it
exposed a state of corruption u-d
Inefficiency In tho civil service deplorable to cunlciiipluta.'lleur, hoar)
"In this connection I bog to refor
to a motion by Mr.  Borden,
draw the inference that tt great deal
oi it ls true.   (Hear hear.)
"Vou will purdon mo if I quote
two or three motions upon this subject. 1    I 1 1J
'By Mr. Cockshutt: 'That thu conduct of public business has not beon
characterised by reasonable foresight, cure and prudence.' —ejected,
CU to 50.
'By Mr. flurker.—Condemning the
unbusinesslike arrangements and lack
of public control in respect to tbe
Quebec bridge,   -ejected 90 to 50.
"Motion by Mr. Foster: 'That civil
fit after un examination by a non-
nppointments should bo made on me-
purtizun commission.' Rejected, 72
to
tions clearly in the interests of pure
administration and the protection ol
the rights and liberties of the people
were rejected with the usual governmental majority.   (Hear, hoar)
"The result of the royal commission, reporting in March, 1908, a-
mung other irregularities particularly scored the marine department by
stating that organization, discipline,
-teal for tho public service and rogard
for economy were all conspicuous by
their absence.   (Hear, hear.)
"The Country is demanding purity
of administration in all federal departments and this cun only be affected by an entire change of administration, and it is the duty ol evory
Canadian who is true to Canada t,
see that that change is effected. —
(Applause.)
Oriental Immigration.
"A word or two upon a subject of
special importance to British Columbia, I.e., the Oriental immigration
question.   (Hear, hear.)
"Now, sir, I think that it will ba
conceded that the influx ol Orientals
into British Columbia and the rest
of Cunuda is detrimental both aoclal-
I; und luduslrl ill' to tha people ol
oua own race ami kindred. There can
be no question to this fact. The
only argument which may have been
advanced ln favor of cheap Oriental
labor was that thero waa not sufficient white labor to develop the resources of the country. This is a
good condition of things for tho present for it ahow* we hav. wealth
stored up for future development aud
we can afford to let it lie as a heritage for th. rising generation
and the healthy white immigration
which is coming to the country, and
lot the benefits accrue to thoae to
whom thoy of „ right belong. tAp-
plaun)
"In hi* speech before tbe House
fDecomber 18th, 1907) on the question of Oriental Immigration, Mr.
Smith said as follow*:

The meeting pf Sho City Council
wa* held in the City Hall on Monday evening. In tbe absence of May
or Nicholson, Aid. Matheson presided, and there were present Aid, Roberts, Haworth, Ilrown and McKin-
nell.
A letter wus read from Mr. Mohun,
the engineer engaged Ly the Council
to prepare iPluns for u sewerage system respecting tho location of the
septic tank. In view of the difficulty in getting a site on the shore
line, he suggested that the tank
should be placed on a placo indicated on an accompanying chart somewhere between the shore ldno and the
Esplanade.
Aid. McKinnell moved and Aid.
Brown seconded that iho connilunicu-
tion be Hod and Mr. Mohun instructed to go on with the work.
Alter a brief informal discus—un,
during which Aid. Matheson declared
himself in favor of the site on the
Esplanade previously agreed upon by
the Council. The motion was carried.
There were no accounts to be presented, a fact which provoked „ chorus of "Ohs"i from the Aldermen.
Fire Chiel Smith presented a detailed account of the recent bush fire,
giving the various calls upon J he
firemen and the work they had done
in lighting tho lire. The total bill
Ior all the work wa* $117.00.
On onotion of Aid. Haworth, the
report was referred to the Finance
Committee.
fire Chief Smith also reported
that he required some hose coup]
ings and other fittings, the cost ot
which would amount to SD.OO and
on motion he was authorized to purchase them-.
Aid. Haworth thought that something should be done to repair the
cemetery lenoe, but Aid. Matheson
*ugge*tcd that tho Cemetery C0111-
ndtteo could bo left to look to that.-
The deferred request of Mayor Nicholson regarding the levels on First
Avenuo wa* again brought up. In tho
absence of His Worship,    it     was
thought best to lay the matter over
for another week.
Tho question of appointing a committee to interview the property holders on that section' of First Avenue,
who- would be affected by altering
the grado, was raised by Aid. Haworth.
Aid. Roberts suggested that they
would have to see the people on
both sides of the Avenue, but Ald-
Matheson declared that they did not
have to consult the property owners
on either side of the street. They
proposed to lntorvlew thom ns a
matter of courtesy, and in order to
avoid any possibility of future trouble. He himself had mado the suggestion, and ho favored tlie appointment of a committee.
Aid. Matheson, Haworth and Roberts wero appointed a committee for
this purpose with Instructions to report at the next meeting of the
Council.
AW. Haworth again raised tho
question of tho billiard saloons and
bowling ul'Icys which waa brought
ftp a iveok ago by Aid. Brown. He
thought that something ought to lie
dono with those places. There was „
lot ol gorabliug going on over thoso
■-"ool tables. Tho matter required
regulating. It was not fair to allow theso places to go on at all
hours nnd shut up other houses.
Aid. Matheson: It is up to some
of you Aldermen to give notlco of
motion.
Aid. Brown: Were we not to havo
a copy of a Victoria by-law dealing
with the question beforo us tonight?
Aid. Haworth: I do not see why
the Clerk should not write to Victoria and get a copy. Wo should
not have to wait upon the Mayor
doing overything.
Aid. Matheson: Hnvo you Instructed tho Clerk to do so? Had you
done so Inst week you would no
doubt have had a copy horo tonight.
Aid. Haworth then gave notice of
motion that at tho next meeting ot
tho council ho would introduce a
by-law for tho regulation of bowling
alloyB end billiard saloons.
The Council thon adjourned.

BANFF, Alta., Aug. 23.—The party of newspapers nnd magazine writ-
era nnd correspondents from tho United Statos forming tho largest nnd
moat distinct distinguished party of
American journalists that ever visited Canada, were interviewed tonight liy a Canadian reporter and
they expressed themselves In terma
-which indicate tho profound Impression which hus been made upon them
by tho country thoy have visited.
Robert Jones, of Chicago Inter-Ocean, said: "When nature begins

Rockies. The good friends of Western Canada have been telling In tlie
States about the fifty S-wltzerlands

Richard H. Little, of the Chicago

continent und when tho orchestra

or uny other city In which the currents of the world truffle come together. ''
Elliott Flower, the noted author
and magazine writer, said:
"I have never seen any mountain*
before. I thought 1 had but I was
mistaken. 1 hnve crossed the Alls-
ghenny many times, of course, hut
they do not nearly compare' for
grandeur except in occasional spots
though they do for beauty. I am
not particularly familiar with the
American Rockies, although I have
crossed them two or three times and
havo had little buckbonrd excursions
with the end of the rnnge in Lower
California. Still I flnd that I roally saw mountains in the right per-
scop.tive to appreciate their grandeur today. Heretofore I have been
either too near or too for, but to,
day I saw real mountains in Just
right perscriplivo to enable me to
appreciate their grandeur. The American rockies may hnve a possiblo
beauty and grandeur equal to thla,
but it has not been my fortune to
seo it."

Saturday, '-The juniors played a
draw game of football against a fast
picked eleven from Victoria) lu the
tug-of-war Mr.-'-'Simpson's-Tope-pullers, who heretofore have never pulled without cleats, proved altogether
too much for tho bulky, burly men of
Victoria. Owing to a stupid mistake on the part of the Colonist reporter, the credit of tho notable for-
formunee is given to Nanaimo,, Of
course this is no new experience fcr
us; but all the same it is sutllcMnt-
ly aggravating.
We are told by the Chronicle that
our surmises as to its political affiliations hnve proved incorrect, nnd
that if we keep on guessing we may
strike the mark a week after tho elections. We. don't remember indulging in any guess work as to tbe political policy of the Chronic... Indeed,
wo don't think thero is any necessity1
but we feel "sporty" enough 11 veu-
all about it the week BEFORE the
elections.
In tho lust issue of the Standard
editorial refcrenco was made to tlie
bush fires, and the suggestion was
made that the companies responsible
•for them should foot the bill of expenses incurred in fighting them. The
bill amounting to about one hundred
and twonty dollars was presented on
Monday evening and was quietly accepted ami promptly handed ovor to
the Financo Committee. On iho

SPORTING
ANOTHER DEFEAT.
Thore is no denying tho fact that
thc season has been marked by rather disastrous opening. True it is
that the players havo not found thein
form end that the weather was all
against good play, but even then,
Vnnaiino nre In precisely the same
caso as the home boys. And even
with nothing at stake, two defeats
in two weeks is rtitber -•* inauspicious beginning.
There was really nothing to the
first game a week ago, The goal
might just as easily have been registered for Ladysmith and, on the
day's play, neither club deserved to
lead. Tho case was altogether different on Sunday. Thero was a marked difference in th* play of the two
teams und Ludysmith supporters
have nover before witnessed such a
painful exhibition a* that of the
lirst hall. Why, in the lirst twenty-
lninules the champion* were all over
their rivals. The home halves seouii-
ud utterly incapable of holding   thu
MU. SHEPHBR-'S DEBUT.
Of gonoral intjr <t to tho I'nvir..-.-
and of particular concern to this dls-
trict is the speech of Mr."Shepherd,
which wo publish on unothor page.
Thc address is the opening ol Mr.
Shepherd's campaign nnd deserves to
bo road very carefully by all thoso
who have at heart the growing Inter
osts of tho locality, tho provinco and
the Dominion. Apart altogether from
its stylo and diction, tho speech was
w-holly commendable. In the briefest
possible compass couipntiblo with lucidity. Mr. Shepherd reviewed the
main political issues of the hour.
(Purity of Government nnd ofliclency
of administration, bettor terms for
tho Provinco, and a white Canada-
hero nro the throe chiof plunks of his
platform. Willi oach of tln-io questions ho dealt plainly antl frankly,
and scorning all political equivocations, committed himself definitely
and Irrevocably. This is the proper
attitude, tho honest front, with
which1 to face tho electorate. Mr.
Shepherd is convincingly sincere in
all his statements, nnd palpably honest in his intentions. Ho is, in short
tho very caiiiliilntc the voters in this
constituency havo been asking Ior.
More than this, ho is of proven intelligence nnd ability, and has all lho ....
attributes of popularity; He is with ll"'"'k'nS forwards and the last line,
out a doubt the most formidable gallant and skillful a* wus its do-
candldate Smith has evor hnd to fence, was swept off its feet,
face; his debut on Saturday was a| lt would h
magnificent   personal    triumph; and' •   ^^
the result of    his     candidature wlll.PurP°*> to enter into any individual
surojy   be a    glorious Conservative criticism of the playors.    But  ihere
is this to be said, and that is that,
while the halvos were only inditT-
oront and never at any time strong
the forwards were all the time indescribably off color, -lugr gave „ truly pitiabl* exhibition and compared
with .Nanaimo's vanguard, wero
worse than novices. There was nevor an attempt nt combination nor
any semblance ol cohesion. Fosses
were mulled in the taking and time
and again the ball uo* driven ahead
or over the lino from advantageous
positions. Even when a forward
movement was initiated ch* players
could never find their places to turn
Jt to account. In this line at least
there has got to lie some radical
Improvement if the c'.itij is to make
ony kind of a brodltable showing in
this season's competitions.
As for the halve* they again were
far from being aa strong aa they
might be. Main was unable to do
himself justice, and Blundell in consequence got all the rope he wanted
Strang, in endeavoring to cover tho
weakness, often left tho contre open
and with men of tho calibre of Hur-
ron, Hooper and Crulckshanks, «, is
inevitable disaster. The "Kid" as ho
hns boon christened is good with his
head and tackles well, but on Sunday his kicking was very erratic.
Wynno plovel his usual hard game;
but he got out of place on occasion,
a thing of which he Is not very of
ten guilty.
The backs woro great. Christian
was perhaps not sa safe as a week
ago; but this mny lie accounted for
by the fact that he had too much
work thrown upon Mm. As it was
he played a grout came and effected
Rome sensational clearances. Struthers playel up to his reputation.
There is not a cooler, header player
in the Province and he never loses
hisnervo at critical> moments, -The
lack division is alt right.
Sandy deserves a word or two himself. He has never lefused to play
in any position he has been aaked to
take, end he haa filled a. gap in
nearly every place in the Held. His
latest is tho goal, and it suffice* to
say that he is playing that position
as well as or better than any ol the
many others ha has tackled, If
some ol hi* clearances were lucky,
ho wu* decidedly unfortunate with
the second goal scored against him,
for he fisted the ball onto Hooper's
head, whence it boiind*d Into the
net. Apart from this he was always reliable, and wa* ln no wise
to blame tor th* adverse score.
The scoro, it should be said,   Was
victory.
.THE I'll ESS.
The platform at Sidney on Saturday was an elegant piece of work mul
left nothing to be desired so far us
tho speakers woro concerned. All -.ho
same thoro was n noticeable omission. No provision wus made for lho
press and its representatives. In tho
Old Country a reporter is a Journalist Just us much as tho leader-writer
or specialist, and, in fulfilling his
appointments, is always treated as a
gentleman. So far as wo havo bc5n
able to observe things nre rathor different out on this Western Coust.
The reporter is looked upon us something of a cross between a sneak
and a thiuf, scarcely respectable ind
certainly not reliable, and generally
his treatment is no concern of his
editor or of ' employers. Ultimate
ly, of course, the reporters are themselves to blame for this condition.of
things which to those pressmen who
havo Ijoen brought up with proper
.sentiments ns to lho dignity of thoir
profession is distinctly humiliating,
On Saturday' thoro was not even ti
bench or a table provided for the
press, and important as was tho
meeting wo only noticed ono roport-
or working. Surely tho press and Its
representatives nro worthy of a littio
moro consideration.
■AGAIN OVERLOOKED.
Ladysmith received hor usual mead
of praise anil recognition at the Conservative pTi-nk- un Saturday, Truo
It Is that the Colonist records the
prosenco of Mayor Nicholson, antl
ovon goes so fur ns to mention that
Ladysmith Is his homo. That, how-
over, is tho full strength to which recognition of tho town can tio carriod
by our friends down tho lino. Mr.
Barnard in his fow reuuitks overlook
cd entirely thc Luilysniith contingent who were grouped around tbo
platform nnd scattered about tho
Park. Tho "Colonist" again gives
a graphic account of tho tug-of-war,
and gives Mr. Simpson's team unstinted praiso. but spoils It all by
spooking of It as bolonglng to Nanaimo. Surely It is a most amazing
thing that our town should bo so
consistently overlooked by our friends
and disparaged by our foes

This sort of thing is simply disgusting. Rogers down here was . annoyed by boys inciting him with .pebbles and there wore also some most
ob.ectionable rooters. Still it was
not so bad as the exhibition on Sunday, it ought to. bo and must be
siopped. These outbreaks reflect
great, discredit upon the cluts, and
upon the town, and in the interests
of both clubs and both cities it is to
bs hoped that all good sports will
unite to put an end to it.
On this head tho Free Press has
the following pungent remarks to
offer :
Bradshaw i rofereed a most mpar-
tial game and is to be complimented on his work. And right here a
lecture, is coming to the senseless
numskulls who ar* doing their best
to kill sport in Nanaimo, the cluss
of boys and a few older ones, who
ore   well    known - to everyone,   who
bawled", out Bradshaw for some
of his decisions, and hooted Adam
on every silly pretext. Such tactics
ruin the game, create bad feeling
between towns and also among tbo
playors. The time has arrived to
cut out this sort of work, both in
Ladysmith, and Nanaimo, and the
sooner it is done the quicker the
real spurt loving public ol both
places will give unqualified support
tu their teams. Fair minded people are heartily sick 0I such notions.
They go to seo the gome played on
its merits not to hear acrimonious
ut tho head ol a referee or a playor who happens to
hold his own with anyone on the
fl*ld. The rowdyism of yesterday
wa* th* work of small boys moro
than anyone else and a* -hey wore
allowed ln, molt of them yesterday,
free of charge, the Iootball club cannot do batter hereafter, than exclude them from all ggtnes or at the

There are time* when it may be
necessary to show disapproval ol a
player's action, but let the condemnation be withheld until it is necessary.
CHAMPION AGAIN

SYDNEY, N.S.W., Aug. 24.-Tom

and the mon wore onl only cooler,
but found it no longer necessary to

sun would not bother them. Squires
continued his attack, and scored of-
fectly with three right upper—its,
fallowing the blows with a staggering left to Burns' nose. Burns wus
decidedly groggy, and staggered to
his loot when tho gong sounded.

dodging as blows fell hurmloss, ho

vigorously and Squires, his fast

by the throat thero being but two ol! brought in by Lhc Minister of Mines.
without shouting' each other's private history from the house tops.
Just what is gained from the debate
is not quite clear. Hawthornthwaite
laid claim to being tbe only true
'friend of labor and all his following
believed him. Smith did likewise and
'of course, all his following believed
him. Doubtless the impartial ones
received considerable enlightenment
into tho ways of politicians generally. Ilut whether any votes were
changed by tho debate or not is very
» questionable.
Tho Socialists were quite noisy nt
times and had thero heen a committee of judges would have injured
# tholr caso by thoir harrasslng of
Smith for a timo in his second
speech. Apart from this short period, however, everything was very
orderly.
Tho account given below does not
pretend to bo a full report or the
speeches, but is simply a synopsis of
tho more Important matters touched
on. It is understood that a vcrba-
tum report of tho proceedings is to
ho published for distribution and
those who have a burning desiro to
wade through it way do so then.
SMITH'S OPEKIXG  SPEECH
Tho speaker said that ho would
not say a single work of Hawthtriv
thwaito that would he personal or a
private nature. His record as a pub
lie man was bnd onough. It was
not known to the people of Nam\i
ro who had not followed his course
in the Provincial house or olso it
would not be said so frequently on
the streets of Nanaimo that Haw-
V- jvthw.iito had done everything for
t!■■■ v'-r'-'nt, man and that Smith
h   '   !« c ii thing.
As a Socialist it was not possible
for Mr. Hawthornthwaite to have
any pnrty proclivities. Ho must
stand independently. I_et us exam
ine his record. He 'soparatod from
tho Independent Labor Party in 100 i
giving two reasons for that action.
First: "I cannot agree with Smith
as a repreS.ntativo of labor as he
usos a pass^pn the railways and no
man con be a friend of labor and
make uso of such privileges."
The same mnn today has a pass.
and uses it and has been using ii
for some time.
Socond: "I cannot support Smith
because he administers tho Government patronage and no man ran d >
that and bo n representative of lu
bor."
Todny ho administers, with his
comrade Mr. Williams, and has for
tho past throo or four years, tlie
patronage of tho Conservative government nt 'Victoria.
In 1001 and 1902 whito he (Hawthornthwaite) snt in the houso il
would take a political mlscroscope
to discover what ho had done for every thing that he did was at tha.it-
etigntlon and the creation of Smith
Curtis, tho present Liberal candidate in the Kootonay. Whon the
McBride Government came into power ho gavo it his lavish support, as
proof of which the sneaker ran over
all the woll known campaign' crys
ftgainst the Mcliride govornmont,
used at tho last election, giving the
history and dota.ll of each ono ut
more or less length, mentioning the
following matters in all of which thc
Socialist leader voted with the gov
■eminent.
Tho Fernie ballot box matter, .he
Assessment Act, which ho claimed
doubled the taxes on certain classes,
an Act to protect tho prospector for
■coal, which was defeated by tho gov
.ernmont, and in which the Socialist
liko in the other m aft tors, voted with
itho McBride govornmont; the School
.Act. which increased tho burdens on
tthe peoplo; tho increase on the Wild
S*and Tax, defeated by the Government and the Socialists; tho giving
of large tracts of land to manipula
tors, endorsed also by Hawthorn
thwaite and tho McBride govornmont
and finally the granting of 808,000
acres of land in the matter of the
Columbia and Western deal. The
speaker dwelt nt great length on the
went into all the well known Liberal
arguments on that quostion and ro
Columbia and Western land doal and
furring many timos to tho fact that
it was the voto of Mr. Hawthornthwaite aud his colleagues with tho
govornmont thnt mado it possiblo to
hand ovor to tho corporation S08,-
000 acres of valuable lands belonging to tho provinco. Hawthomth'
waito and Williams had voted consistently with tho government ou
this matter eight times, but Davidson, tho other Socialist, had certain
qualms of conscience and had run
away from tho vote and hakl not
voted either way. Davidson come
from that part of the country most
affected by the Columbia nnd West'
in favor of it for fear of what tho
em deal and dare not cast his vote
people would do to him at tho noxt
election.
The Kftlen Island deal was also
gone Into and Hawthornthwaite „cnr
od for his support of McBrldo in
that matter. Said tho spoaker, more
lands had been given away by B. C
to corporation.,: than all tho rest of
tho provinces In Canada put togeth
er had glveh. B. C. had glvon away
hundreds o. millions of acres of land
25 millions alone to tho -C.P.*n., two
millions to the Island railway, aud
so on. TRho weak position of tho
province today was owing to the
amount of land given away to tbe
political grafters. In 1907 McBride!
got a big majority in the* house,
and Hawthornthwaite was cast aside
liko an old fag, the government hav-
Ing no more use for him. Then wo
flnd him doing the things that hc
should have done bofore when ho had
tho administration hy tho throat.
He brought up the resolution to
have tho Cumberland mines invostl-
government majority, Smith and
his colleagues could huve an-ved the
Ituntion for the province. I id they
do it?" No. Not.a word wail heard
from thein. Joo Martin brought in
resolution thut the bill should not
pass until thnt clause was inserted.
Whero wus Smith then? Ho savs he
voted for it. Hc never did. He
sneaked the voto ns he bus done
time and again. In 1901 when he
ontored the house un extension of
time wns to be made. He voted for
it ou tho strength of one clause
which stipulated that a largo portion of tr hind was to bo reserved
for the Province. But when tho bill
came up finally this particular clause
had been left out by tlie rascals, the
scallawags, Smith and his friends.
Smith accused him of having done
nothing in his first two sessions in
the house. First, ho hud introduced
tho bill to establish examinations of
miners in the Province. Second, Ue
has put an amendment to the Poll
Tax Act. In 1002 ho hnd brought
in a numbor of bills—an amendment
to the Trades Union Bill, the Workmen's Compensation Act — between
thirty and forty thousand dollars
had been saved to the workmen of
Fornio alono in one year by this act.
Thon thore woro 'the Boiler Inspection act, and tho Election Act, mnklng election days a genornl holiday,
In 1903 he had beon up against it,
Mclnnes ami Prior working against
him. He had introduced many bills,
only to have them turnod down by
the Grits and Tories. For instance,
another Trades Union Act amendment and several amendments to tho
Coal Minos Ilogulation Act. In Tact
he had introduced so much legislation that McBrldo had said thut he
was taking up two-thirds of tho
timo of the house with labor legislation. In 1901, by the way Davidson was not a Socialist, ns Smith
maintained, but nn independent lab*
orite. This was at tho timo of thc
Columbia and Western deal nnd both
Conservatives had been roturnod
from the districts affected by this
deal at tho rocont election. In HUM
ho had introduced an net to secure.
coal lands for the settlers. Tt carried and was mndo law. This ,vas
followed by tho act to further nmond
the Steam Boilers Act. Ho could
not get this through with McInno_,
but he got It through with McBlidn.
Other bills of his were the bill lor
tho protection of deer, the Eight-
hour bill, a bill for the Exemption
of tho small farmer from taxation ;
another bill iu connection with the
Elections Act, to reduce tho deposit
from ¥200 to SI oo. Thoro had been
moro labor bills passed in 1901 thnn
In all previous years of the legislature. Other bills tho spenker men
tinned ns being introduced by hlu
wero. Tho Smelter Bill, rogulntin:
tho hours of labor; tbe Ambulance
Act, tho Women's Franchise, amendments to the Eight Hour Act, In
spcctlon of Conl Mines Act. All nf
these bills could just as well havc
been introduced by Smith in tho Federal Houso, as that body had the
powor to deal with them. Ho had
demanded an investigation into the
Cumberland mines, owned ly Dunsmuir, the mnn who hnd been made
Lieut-Governor by the help of Smith
and his friends. It was suid nt tb
time ho asked for the investigation,
thnt large numbers of Orientals were
to bo taken to Cumberland to work
In tho mines and ho wanted to prevent this if possible. Ho hnd booi
dofeated in gotting this Investigation
through no fault of his own. As hi-
time was up he hurl not the privilege of going over all tho legislation
he hnd introduced in tho house for
benefit of the working men but he
wished to make this statement that
In nil of his eleven years as a representative of the people, he (Smith)
hud never introduced one single piece
of legislation for the benefit of lho
working man or for the benefit of
the small farmer for whom he now
professed bis heart to ho bleodjng.
SMITH'S REPLY.     /
Hawthornthwaite had answered
nearly all his own arguments. As the
Semlln Government had considered thc Columbia and Western matter
and as hc was not a member then,
tho matter was not worth considering, As a matter of fact tho land
was not granted until soveral years
later. Regarding tho Now Vancouver Coal Company's land deal, for
which Hawthornthwaite had denounc
ed him, and Dr, McKcchnlo,
he (Hawthornthwaite) had bcon his
agent In the matter. Ho had boeu
sent with him (Smith) to protest against tho action or Joe-Martin in
bringing an injunction ngniust the
company—that was when he was
learning Hawthornthwaite to ho
politician, and speaking nt Nolso-i
on May 23rd, Hawthornthwaite had
aald: "Another act of justice which
the Semlln government had dono wns
the granting to tho New Vancouver
Coal Company tho lands, etc. Hawthornthwaite was a Liberal thon but
now he takes the opposito view do?,
pite his attitude at that time, although the samo facts exist now ns
thon. He accuses mo of courting the
favor of Dunsmuir. My position t.s
a public man is to speak as woll of
overy mnn as T con.
Whon I was secretary of the Mln-
^_^___^^^^^___ ors' Union I spoko of Dunsmuir pub-
gated as to how many Orientals wero Hcly as I have always dono. I did
working in them. Did ho do that not, as Hawthornthwaite did, tako a
In 1904? Search the records—not a private oath in a private room of
word? In 1908 not a word. It was the legislature, swearing alloginnce
only when the Government had 'no to His.Majesty and thon como out in
Hawthornthwaite—It was Introduced and put through by me.
Smith—He mado the umendinents,
and it was put through by tho house
Smith, continuing said; When
man supports a bill, hc is deserving
of as much credit us the num who
introduced it. Premier Laurier had
introduced the Chinese taxation, i)id
he say let me bring that in; it
be a boost for me? No he believed
in letting the best man bring in the
lill, Those who gavo them thoir
support wero deserving of ns much
credit. Tho Semlln Government amended the Election Act and also the
Masters and Servants Act which Haw
thornthwaito talked of. He Smith,
hnd brought in tho Big Screens Act,
and it passed thc house, being an
act that was of more value to tho
miners than nil the legislation that
Hawthornthwaite hnd brought In the
house put togethor. Other legislation
that he hnd introduced wus a measure making it compulsory for inspec
tors of mines to hold equal certificates of equal value us tho manager
of the mine to be inspected, and another measure that no man bo employed underground who could not
rend and write thc l-'mrhsh language,
Tho old Trades Unionists of the
town had been responsib*-: for the
passing of thc Eight Hour aw. not
Hawthornthwaite Hawthornthwaite
had simply got the law confirmed
which hnd always been law. Dwelling
on the churge that the Federal Gov-
hills Hnwthorntbwaite hud introduced in Victoria, Smith asked Hawthornthwaite: "Do you think I eould
havo brought in an 8-Hour Law?
Hawthornthwaite:   "Tf not, why did
you bring in the Eight Hour bill ft
telegraphers?"
Smith: "The telegraphers are li
tor-Provincial nnd enn only bo go
ernod from Ottawa."
Continuing, the speaker said ho
hud introduced nnd hnd passod tlie
Couplings Act, an act affecting
eiy railway man in the country mi!
nu act that overy railway wns opposed to, nnd also the Union Label
BUI, affecting overy mnn in the
country. In conclusion, Mr. Smith
rend the certificate of character that
Mr. Hawthorn thwaito hnd given him

me of them, printed over the state-

so.    Be the Telegraphers' Bill,  t introduced  the same bill into the Victoria house, I did not as my friend
did, put it in    tho     waste basket, I
rot the rocord of tho members on it.
Smith's Union Label Hill wns killed in the Sennte, a Senate control.-
.-nid to the elVect that he wns   born
?d by tho Liberals themselves.    The
j bill was no good anyway.   There was
'.i rider attached to it that it would
i :iot bo effective unless the manufacturers consented to it.    I Introduced
[in nil  09 bills, 80 of which   became
.'aw.   The spenker then reminded the
udience of his opponent's love    for
ho Britisher, quoting from his
cut Vancouver speech in  which    ho
i Kngland, married in England, etc,
nit would have boon a  prouder   man
ad ho been born a   Canadian.
Tho Dig Screens Act he never    introduced.    Mi'Kechnie had dono that
and    It  was openly stated that    he
caucused against it.    Here wus    hit

Tho speaknr (hen went into the
Railway Tux question, accusing
Smith of putting through tho Ottawa house a bill thnt permitted the
O.P.U. to esrnpe taxation. Tn the
cross firing thnt took place at, I his
juncture Smith claimed thnt he bad
simply voted for a hill that, permitted tiic company to offer moro stock

I in the matter as degrading, contemptible, and so on. Smith hud
told them that the Liberals hud nav-
glvon away au acre of land to
the corporations, but he did not tell
that they had given many thousands
of acres to themselves. Smith bad
told tbem thnt there was no agitation on the Oriental question up to
1907.
Was thero ever a deputation sent
up to your houso In this matter?
Smith—"Don't remember uny.
Hawthornthwaite — Don't you remember -Aitken, Woodman nnd 1 he
Trades and Labor Council of Vancouver? The Orientals hnd destroyed thc fishing on the Eraser for the
whitemen and protest after protest
had been made from Nnnnimo ro the
locnl hnrbor nnd tho .Taps fishing

of the Japanese treaty? He sent you
n beautiful speech on the matter,
mudo ten months after it was i 11
over, The party lash was on bis
hack, thc bnlt held out ahead of him
a place in thc Sennte.
Speaking of tho land steals, the
speaker said thnt the betrayal of
Christ was not in It with somo of
the millions of dollars stolen from
the country in order thut somo fow
would get a few thousands of dollars to themselves.
Thn spenker concluded his remarks
with a challenge to Smith to meet

Count Zeppelin, the inventor of the
famous airship that was recently
destroyed hus announced that he intends to found an institute Ior ths
investigation and solution of the pro
blem of aerial navigation, in the interest of the Oerman industry of
commerce and science. The contributions made by the public, he says
are not fur beyond the fund noces-

to accept towards the recuperation
of his private fortune which was
spent in airship experiments. All Iur-'
ther contributiuis will be added to
the endowment of the institute.
The hand at Stuttgart,. which is
receiving the subscriptions has S500-

credit, and this amount is probably
$250,000 less than the amount subscribed and which will be available
later. Word has been received by
the Count that the Derlin City Coun

NANAIMO FORBIDDEN    O-BOUND.
The Vuncouvor Rugby Union still
pursues its course of slandering Nanaimo sportsmen. Not content with
its unsportsmanlike altitude ol last
season when slander upon slander
and lie* were heaped on the Nanai
mo public generally as a, result of i
rugby mutch played here with the
Vancouvor outlit, the retiring secretary at the annual moeting hold iii
Vancouver last mght bunds down
this precious document which ii it is
a sample of how tho rugby game is
to be fostered in the Province, does
not spea.i much for the future of the
game, especially if the Vancouver-
ites ore to exercise much induenco:
Mr. Henry Boll-Irving, the retiring
socretary, in his annual report,
pointed out thut the representative
team hod captured the championship
of the l'acilic coust, whilo the Wanderers had annexed tho city championship. Mr. Boll-Irving dwelt
briefly 0n the record of the local
teum, and incidentally referred to
the disagreeable incident that had
occurred in connection with the visit to Nanaimo.
1 regret to state," said Mr. Bell-
Irving, "thnt the Nanaimo team and
spectators behaved in a very unsportsmanlike manner, und after due
consideration your committee has
passed a resolution that no Rugby
team undor its Jurisdiction will be
allowed to play against Nanaimo unT
til proof is forthcoming that they
can conduct themselves as sportsmen and gentlemen."
It would well behoove the rugby
men of Nannimo now to get together and pass a similar resolution
le^ardiug tho Vancouverites. There
would he jUBt about as much senso
in it and it would have Just about
that much good elloct on tho game.
There were doubtless faults on both

London, August 22—According to
nn I'stinutto of Sir Alfred Jonos,
Cirait Britain will benefit to tho
of the now Patents Act, which is to
tent of _2o,()U0,000 liy the working
beconio fully operative next week.
The new law stipulates that foreign
ers who may obtain British patents
must manufacture the patented goods
on British soil. On nftor after next
Friday anyone, on application to
tho Comptroller of Patents, nitty
cause to bo revoked any patent grant
ed four yenrs or more ago in this
country to any foreigner who manufactures the goods in tpiestion "exclusively or mainly" outside tho Url
tish Kingdom.
As American and German manufacturer are doing, a   large business   it
England, they stand to bo forced   to
expend millions of dollars in tlio con
slruction of plants here as provided
by tho new act.   Last year England
granted    2.00S patents to Germany
and 2,7112 to the United Statos. Oi
20,000 British patents havo   bom
grunted within the past threo   yoars
to foreigners.   Not ono of theso   pa
tents   has hitherto   been adequately
worked" in lho  United Kingdom.
Among    American    manufacturers
who are particularly bard hit by .oc
now. law are tho   makers of     typewriters, cash registers, nil kinds    of
fine steel   working machinery, elevator and pneumatic tube pnrts, .n addition to a  thousand nnd ono ?minll
articles sold by Atnorlcnns under tho
touts.
Many American nnd Gcnnun firms
luivo arranged to open branch 'nc-
torlos lu England to comply with
tho law. Othors wlll ovorcomo tho
dlfllculty by menus of agreements
with British firms, by tho tortus
which tho latter will manufacture
tho gootls on n system of royalties,
ln oithor cnso Great Britnin will ro-

London, Aug. 22r-Th_ Daily Mail
says it has discovered Izzel Fasti-i.
formerly secretary of the Sultan uf
Turkey and father of iMeluned Alboy,
ex-Turkish minister at Washington,
rafugeeing in London. In the beginning ofthe recent reform movement E: I
Izzel Pasha fled from Constantinople I f
and took refuge aboard the steamer jl
Maria which, despite tlio protests of;:;
tho Young Turks party to the 3*'l*l_l
tish ambassador, sailed for the Me
diterruneun with the Sultan's form-
secretary as a passenger, Iu au
interview printed in the Daily Mail,
lzzct Pasha gives the palace view ut'
the revolution in Turkey. He claims
that tho commission sent to investigate tho revolution was composed ot
unolectiable men, but the situation
was such that great delay wasy dangorous nnd therefore the council i f
ministers advised the Sultan to
grant a constitution in prefernce to
risking civil war by sending troops
to suppress the alleged mutiny. The
•Sultan willingly agreed, ns hc always luul, as likewise Izzot Pasha,
favor of a parliamentary government. Izzel Pasha added thut lie
md long wished to retire but uul
wuilod for the completion of his favorite project, the Mecca railway. The
inunediiilo reason for his departure
from Constantinople, according io
the interview, was that the Sultan
himself counselled him to go to Europe. Uo shipped aboard a British
vessel, hc said, in order to ensure
protection against the Young Turks.
Arriving at Genoa, Izzot sent his
family to a place of safety ami himself proceeded to Paris and thence tb
Loudon. Ho intends to mako i'.ng-
laml his home.

It has been a standing complaint
with the town that there has been n0
direct water communication with
Vancouver, Of course there wus alL
ways the Transfer barge, but besides
the slo-v time made there was the
fact that there was no accomodation for passongers. Tho dlscdm-
forts of the trip weighed even more
than its slowness, so those whoso
business called them to Vancouver,
preferred tho inconvenience of

Now, as to tho passenger accomodation. Next, to the Captain's cabin
is a double berth, comfortable and
roomy and nicely fitted up, with lavatory and bath attached. From the
end of the cabin there is quite a
deck space which can be turned into
comfortable lounging deck. This
deck and cabin will, of course, be
'reserved for flrstrclass passengers.
Below deck is the second class accommodation. There is a largo and
airy room which should comfortably
seat about thirty passengers, und afford fairly easy sleeping accomodation for about twelve. It only remains to be said that the rooms arc
steam heated, that tho boat is lighted throughout with elcctrioity, and
that meals will be served on board.
Of course the boat has none of the
lavish fitting of tho Princess boats,
or even of the Joan, but at least
she offer* easy and comfortable accomodation for a limited number of
passengers ond should prove _ groat

them to Vancouver at all often.
