Robert Cassidy, K. C, Gives Able
Address to Good Audience in
Opera House
A good audience gathered in the
opera house on Monday night to hear
what Robert Cassidy, K.O., of Vancouver, a life-long Conservative, hid
to say in support of the Reciprocity
agreement, which will he adjudged
hy the people of Canada tomorrow,
September 21st.
Dr. W. H. Sutherland, president ol
the local L/iheral association, occti
pied the chair, and in introducing
the speaker of the evening said that
the Liberals had tried to conduct
this campaign without appealing to
any racial, sectiongl, or passionate
feeling. The only question before the
electorate today was that of Reciprocity, and asked them to favor it
with  their  ballots  on election day.
Mr. Cassidy, K.C., said that he
was a lite-long Conservative, having
supported that party since coming to
Oaaada in 1876, but he was supporting the Liberal government in this
campaign, because Reciprocity wai
of the highest possible consequent
to the people of Canada. He reviewed the history of Reciprocity in Canada sines 1S54, how the old
province of Upper Oanada prospered
duriag the time we had a reciprocal
agreement with the United States,
which was abrogated by the lattei
country in 1865. A period of great
depression followed. The United States raised a tarifl wall against Can
ada, and in 1878, Sir John McDon
aid, then premier of Call ida, be
came convinced that we should take
similar action against the United
States. The speaker showed, however, that Sir John was at all times
a believer,in Reciprocity, and how in
1879 be had placed a standing offer
or Reciprocity on the Statutes of
Canada—practically the same as i.-;
offered by the United States to Canada today—ami thnt without requiring to make any appeal to the
peopi? at all it would have become
lnw. In 1-891 Sir John McDonald
died, and in that year the last specod
from the throne which Sir John put.
into the mouth ot the Governor Gen
eral again expressed the wish for a
reciprocal trade agreement with the
United Stat.'S. Not only Sir John
McDon ild, hut all the Conservative
leaders as well as the Liberal leaders
bad endeavored to get reciprocity
with the Stutes, ever since ccntoler
iitmn. In 189G Sir Wilfrid Laurier
came into power and in 1898 he also
made nn offer of reciprocity to thc
States, which was met with coolness
What position did Sir Wilfrid otak,
then? He said that while Oanada
still looked forward to Reciprocity,
he d:d not think it comported with
our dignity to mnke any further ef
forts towards that end, hut that any
advances which wee made would
have to come from the United State-
Mr. Caisi.ly said the Conservatives
claimed that conditions were differ
ent today, Imt he showed thnt no
word hud been said against recipro
city since that time, but on the con
trury, the Conservative leaders ir
th.- last house had twitted the government with not making any forth
er efforts to secure just such an ag
reement as was now lieing offered
them by the States. He quoted Iron
Hansard extracts of speeches by Iir
Bproule, Geo. B. Fisher, J. H. Sex-
smith, R, L. Borden and Mr. North
rup, all in support of Heripro.ity and
when th.' agreement was first brought
down in tbc house the Conservatives
applauded the same, under these cir
rumstances snid the spenker do you
think 1 ought to abandon thc principles which have been held by both
parties since I came  to Oanada,
The speaker then went on to Bhow
how conditions in the States had
compelled Mr. Taft to take the action he did. The trusts were grinding the people down under tbe most
cruel tyranny the world had ever
known and in order to give the American people relief Mr. Taft had de
cide.l to open a door in thehigh tariff wall through which thc natural
products of both countries could
flow freely. But the Conservatives
said the Democrats arc coming into
power Mn the States let us wait llltl! then and we will get into the Am
erican market without giving anything in exchange. Yes said Mr.
Cassidy, but what advantage would
it be for us to get in with the rest
ot the world. As it is now Canada
is the only favored nation, the rest of
tie world  is shut out.
Mr. Cassidy ronsi.leicl th' dlsloy
al rry. which wns being raised by thc
Conservatives in this campaign, an
insult The met thnt men use such
arguments sbows their insinroriey.
Wbo, eald tbe speaker, are the molt
capable of judging whether thii arrangement is likely to endanger our
ties with Great Britain. The suggestion did not come first from Taft
to Canada, but was submitted to the
Imperial government In Knglnad,
through the British Ambassador at.
Washington. Did they think it was
going to he a good thing for the
British Kmpire. Let me tell you
this, said Mr. CaSBidy, tlie attitude
of an ambassador is simply a reflex
of the opinion of his government and
while no cue knew exactly what instructions were issued to the British
ambassador at Washington, that.
gentleman's altitude was so favorable, so insistent towards the agreement, that he waB broadly charged
by the Opposition in Kngland with
exceeding his official position. He
quoted the opinion of the Duke of
Argyle, the uncle of King George in
regard  to Reciprocity as follows:
"Nation il pride can only exist
where the resources are ample for
the continuance in power of a nat -
tion.   Cnnada     can  do more      tban

Juvenile Bostonians
The large audience that assembled
at the Edison theatre last evening,
were given a decided treat. The Juvenile Bostonians appeared the ''The
Ros2 of Blandeen," a bright little
musical aflair that had a most delightful interpretation at the hands
of this clever company. The Juveniles are an organization composed en
tirely of young girls whom we are
assured, are all from sixteen to
eighteen years of age. One hardly
believes they are as old as that for
most of them are l>etite and charming with the chtirm of youth. MiSB
Rose Henry, also known as Patsie
Henry, is the star of the company
and had the part of a boy whicli was
delightfully done. Her ability as a
comedienne is undoubted. Miss Thom
Hellen developed a surprisingly good
soprano voice handled with the art
of a mature woman. Little Miss
Doris  Can held  was  quite the pet    of

Found Dead in Box Car
The body of a man, aged about 40
years, was found yesterday morning
by C.P. Frank and J. Gobelle, C.P.
R. brakeman, in a Union Paci'fic box
car in the yards here. The Coroner
was notified and gave instructions to
have the body removed to Howson's
undertaking parlors. An investigation of the clothing of the deceased,
by Provincial Constable Kington,
disclosed the name as T. Bailey and
from a certilicate taken from his poo
ket showed that he was booked out
of Winnipeg on August 28th last by
O. Hanson & Co., on n contract to
work on an extra gang on the C.P.
R. It was evident from the appearance of the body that death must
have taken place three or four days
before the body was found. There
was considerable blood on the face,
and in the car there was a pool of
blood on the floor. The hody when
found was lying face downward. The
car in which the body wns found
came in from Field on Monday night
on a freight train. The deceased wns

With all due respect, it Is submit
ted Premier McBride has uo claim (or

reciprocity in natural products even
on political grounds. It is stale at
this time in thj discussion, to reiterate that all leading Canadian 8ta-
ti'snun have made it a national policy; and that the people recognize
its claims as such. K not, why
should Premier Roblin, of Manitoba
say a man could vote for it andstill
be a good Conservative.' Premier

These columns could lie filled with
anti-Imperialistic utterances of Nationalist orators on Conservative
platforms in Quebec, if it was
thought wise to try and make party
advantage out of racial and religious
feeling. It is not the purpose or desire of the Liberal com ittec in this
district to arouse Bin-h feelings or
inllnme such passions. It appeals to
all thinking loyal Canadians, native
born, British born, ur naturalised,
ki lend a hand by their votes for

that from 1K87 to 1911 Canada's export trade has Increased more than
double over thc whole volume In
189fi, when the Liberals came into
power, and they would do well to
further remember that although the

export trade and to balance it up
against the balance the U.S. has over us, by getting access to its mark

Sixty-three per cent of the U.S. people live in the big Eastern cities tho

Upon an outsider, and cna who
bas visited most ot the small cities
of British Columbia anl come in
contact with the business mtn of
each, Revelstoke makes a good impression. Though she claims only to
have 3,f)l>0 of a population, she seemR
in every way to be larber than Kam^
loops, which is rated at 4,2t:0, and
Vernon, whicli is rated the same as
herselt (-3,500), while the number,
quality and construction of her business blocks, the extent and lay out
of the rota i'l section and Iut general
commercial tone seem to excel those
of Nanaimo, a much older and larger city.
An energetic, progressive an-d optimistic mayor, J. 11. Hamilton, M.
D., city councillors who are also representative business men; a very
much alive Board of Trade, and a
thriving mercantile association com
bine to keep the business spirit one
of the highest order
The Revelstoke business and professional men have realized the value
of co-operation and are daily demonstrating it. They pull well together
for the good of their own and thc
city's interests, and in a way that is
a credit to a growing place of its
sire. To the far-sighted investor or
the man interested in the industrial
development of the city this must be
greatly in her favor.
On the other hand, the la^ge majority of them, when individually con
earned, are mo3e independent and
decisive. They have lost all trace
of the village tendency to wait and
wonder what their friends and com.
petitors will think and do, an-d act
promptly and courageously upor
their own convictions. In fact ir.
Revelstoke men of fine business ant"
moral standards and high intallectu
al calibre seem to predominate.
The city itself is beautifully lai.'
out with broad streets, deep lawns
generous boulevards, and wide side
walks. There seems to he plenty o
room to grow in all directions. Witl
an almost unlimited supply of wite
power and main-line transportation
as well as lieing the dietributiot
point for and the gateway to th,
Columbia Valley in the north and th
Arrow and Kootenay lake countr;
to the south, the city should, with
her present clean, Ban*; business and
commercial methods to buil-d on,
soon become the big industrial cet
tre  of interior British  Columbia.
Go where you will, you will find
no better located point for the site
of a city than Revelstoke. It is a'
nearly ns possible in th; centre o
that great section of British Colum
hia extending for a length of S5I
miles between the Crow's Nest an
B. C. Southern railway systemB to
the south and the route of th
Grand Trunk Pacific and Cfiuadia:
Northern railways to the norlh.
Prettily situated on the Columbia
river where it is cros.ed by the main
line of the Canadian Pacific Railwny
it is also the junction with the main
line of the Arrowhead and Ko:,tenaj
Railway, which connects with th
palatial steamers of the C.P.R. or
the Arrow lakes, and with the B.
Q. Southern, Columbia an-d Western,
Crow's Nest Pass and Great Northern railway systems to the south.
As the construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern
railways to the north proceeds, and
these systems become extended into
the Canoe River Vnlley. and the ter-
rilory tributary to the Big Bend of
the Columbia, they must seek con
nections with the south, and Revel
stoke will be the point of junction ol
the railway systems of thc -future
with those of today as they traverse
the great valley* wbich radiate east
and west, north and south from this
city as their common centre.
Whiie Revelstoke thus occupies an
exceptionally  strong   position    as    a
traffic emporium, its outlook is still
brighter from an industrial and man
ufacturing point of view. There are
1,000 miles of timlwr on the Columbia
river and its tributaries north of the
city. The expenditure involved in
the conversion of this timber into
a marketable product will uot fall
far short of $275,O0<l,O00
Water power is plentiful in the
vicinity, th; city having harnessed
one stream of water to a capacity of
1,800 horse power, which is offered
for  industrial  purposes at low rates
stoke are about a quarter of a mil-'
lion acres of land of good quality,
and which, when cleared of timber,
and cultivated, is well adapted for
fruit-growing, poultry farming dairy

object in view. Wing shooting is a
sportsmanlike occupation and with
only fair conservation there should
be ample opportunities for all sports

iina recreation for an Indefinite time

Vancouver wins the Minto cup, emblematic of the world's lacrosse
championship . Fighting] 'desperately
hoping against hope, battling valiantly an 1 seeming to have nil des-
[>.-i ii ii .1 u in as Iheir motto, the champion New Westminster team went
down to defeat at thc hands of Vancouver .Saturday afternoon, the Terminal City's aggregation winning by
six goals to  two.
In seeing the fall of one champion
combination the crowd also saw the
rise of another, wbich, by its victory
crowned a sen-on's achievement in a
■brilliant manner. Vancouver is now
the proud possessor of the vice-regal
silverware, for which Mr. Con Jones
and his famous team have been striv
Ing for so long. Unchecked, unsl-aek-
ening, undismayed, to use the words
of Conan Doyle, the Vancouver team
by dint of perserverance has won its
way to the front, ami today may
justly be acclaimed the champions
of the world.
During the season ten league gamce
were played, both sides winning five
' each. Tbe deciding games were then
taken up and the result wns that
Vancouver won at New Westminster
a week ago yesterday by four goals
to three. Taking the majority of
goals to count in the destination of
the trophy, it will be observed that
Vancouver won by a margin of ten
goals to five on the two games. For
tbe first time in its history Vancouver holds thc Minto cup, and if she
keeps it for as long as New Westminster, four years, nobody will com
plain. It is in the best interests of
the game for the trophy to circulate
Va'Dcouver is now the stronghold of
lacrosse, and may be recognized as
the oltadel at which all other guns
from the lacrosse centres, either east
or west, will be directed.*—Eancouver
Vancouver's championship senior
amateur lacrosse team will pass
through the city tomorrow en route
for Toronto, in quest of the Mann
Cup, emblematic of the Dominion
championship. Tlie V.A.C. boys hnve
just wound up their league season
and won the provincial title -han-dlly
defeating Victoria and New Westminster, and judging by their fine work
they should carry off the Mann Cup
tiiis year. According to reports from
the east, the Regina club, champions
of the prairies, have also challenged
for the cup, but tbey will have to
wait the result ol the V.A.C. team's
trip east before they get a chance at
the trophy. If the V.A.C. boys bring
the cup back they will probably de-
tend it some time in October aiainst
the Regina club.
The Mann cup matches will be
played in Toronto on September 30
and Octo'jer 7, the aggregate number of goals in the two games to
count. Tbe VfA.C. hoys will stop off
at Winnipeg en route east for a work
out, probably playing an exhibition
match with the Canadian Northern
team in tbe prairie capital.

The balance ol tone was good, the

beautifully. The sopranos were swei-t

was rioh and mellow, and the second altos, while exceptionally deep,
were entirely free from coarseness. —

The following letter, issued hy the

iH worthy of the perusal of every elector. It is the communication to
which the Victoria Trades and Labor
"ouncil registered a strong protest
'ii.l which every trades union man
in Kootenay should give consideration to belore voting. It. was issued
when there were, by actual count,
792 workmen in Vancouver and 300
in Victoria available for such work
and in direct contravention to the
Alien Labor Act. Here it is:
"Ollice of the   Superintendent of

When be seconded the following resolution to be forwarded to the house
of commons he was acting in bhe
interests of Ills country. The resolution was read iu parliament and is
taken from Hansard, the ollicial record.   Here it is:
Moved by F.A. Stnrkey and second
ed by W. B. Farris, that in the opin
ion of this meeting the proposed reciprocal tariff between Canada and
the United States is one of* the most
important questions thai* has come
before the people of Oanada, and in
view of the fact that British Oolumbia bus the prospects of great future
in fruit growing, mining and lumbering and that sufficient time has not
noen given the people of this province to carefully consider all phases
of this great question and they ure
not m a position to know what effect such a tarifl would have on the
industries of British Columbia/, there
fore, the government should give
further time to the consideration of
this question, and that a special investigation should be made as to the
effect that this tarifl, if passed, will
have upon the future development of
British   Columbia.—Carried.
Dr. King and other Liberal candi
dates nre appealing for the votes ol
the British Columbia electors for the
Reciprocity compact chiefly on the
declaration that it will enable farm
produce from the neighbor American
states to he bought in this provi.'Ci'
cheaper than the products of British
Oolumbia farms. Just such produce
could be secured even cheaper still
by urging Chinese gardeners to come
into this province and work farms
in what is now waste land of the
crown. If cheapness of farm pro -
duce was inevitably a thing to be
desired, that would be inde.l the
better way, for it would mean the
development at least of oar own
country, nnd distribution here al
bome of a considerable part of the
moneys spent for such produce. I'lven
Mr. Templeman and bis friends hive
not suggested the importation of
Chinese gardeners, and the country
would rise in protest against any
inch proceeding were It proposed.Yet.
it is worth thinking over ns logically better than the encouragement of
the Importation of American farm
products to tbe detriment of those
of our own farming areas.
