touch  dl.   one point as defending a

had been accused of being in league

who had Bald nothing about tbe workers or better wages, It was time the
workers did their own thinking, ln
conclusion he exhorted the electors to
think of what was right and just to
themselves. (Cheers.)
Mr. Mills commenced bis address by
reviewing incidents in his career showing  the  general erroneous  idea  ol
socialism.     He defined it as not an
attack  on  the  government and tbe
socialists don't want to tear .to.,n tho
Hag, but put it on places  wheie the
government   lias   never   placed  it.
Socialism  waB  not an attack on the
rich but au adjustment nl affairs that
will abolish poverty and  make   man
rich by liis own labor.    He pointed
out tbat religion was unnecessary in
politics  and   that   i.iitb   questions
could'n". be settled by a majority vote.
Capital violates religious precepts and
in the golden rule as adopted by business people it was simply that "others
must do for yoo more than yon do for
them."'   He referred to the last wotds
of the  New Testament  as being a
plank out the socialist platform.    In
touching on divorce aB an alleged outcome ol socialism, he said that there
were over a million devorced people in
the United States, but icarcely any
were socialists among them,    There
are  2,000,000 people in  11. C. who
ought to be married simply to prevent
tbe shadow ot gloom  to lie  cast  by
tli.tsc without a domestic fireside or
those who have one.    Capital makes
wages  small  and  Hie uncertain nnd
prevents the increase ol home lite in
British Columbia.    He explained the
three points ol capital as directly proceeding those of socialism.    Firat the
private ownership, second the private
management  and third  the private
appropriation,   all, by  part of the
people of the work and wealth created
by the people's toil.   He humorously
explained the difference between tlie
man and the mule, saying the mule
was better off.    Those  who do  the
work should manage the work and the
result ul the collective  labor should
belong to tbe workers in proportion to
bis labor,    industrial democracy was
a successor lo industrial  despotism.
He referred to ibe C. 1', It, as doing
business in politics through tl.e conservative government and the G. T, P.
through tlie grit government, and that
J. A. Maedonald ia grumbling because
he bad'nt a railroad or a railroadhad'nt
got him.   (Cheers.)    Both  MoBride
and  Maedonald were capitalist robbers and tre -quibbling ever who will
get tbe biggest share.   (At tbis point
nessy, it. is announced tbat six or
seven million dollars will be sprat,
next year, and that the independent
line fro... Winnipeg to Edmonton via
Saskatoon will be pushed ahead with
all possible speed. A number of
bunch linos will also be built, and
although it is not stated, the belie! iB
general that the C. P. R. will parallel
tbe Grand Trunk Pacilic through tht
Yellowhead Puss.
The principal additions to this new
mileage will be the completion ol the
new trunk line across the prairies by
way of Saskatoon, which.will give the
system an alternative route from
Winnipeg to Edmonton. There is
every reason to believe that the line
will be completed in time for this
yours harvest all the way from Sheha,
tbe present terminus ol tl.e Manitoba
i Northwestern to Wetaskiwin on the
Calgary and Edmonton branch.
Another line that will be extended
to the. point of junction with tbe one
just described is tlie Pheasant  Hills
branch,  which   is  now completed aB
lar ns Strasburg.   These will give the
cumpauy control of the  regions ol
Saskatchewan an.l Alberta, and  will
mean   practically   throe   Canadian
Pacilic systems through tbe prairies.
It lias also been decided that another
forty miles shall be added to the line
which is being built in a northwesterly direction Iron. Moose Jaw to tbe
Saskatchewan  river.    The management hopes to get through the whole
of the heavy rock work that has to be
done in connection with the double
tracking between Winnipeg an.l Fort
William.   The distance between tl.e
two points is   lour   hundred   and
twenty-six miles.    It is expected that
three hundred miles  ol tho double-
tracking will bo ready lur tbe taking
out ol the 1907 crop.

That tbe compulsory vote in Canada will be really satisfactory is an open
question. Certainly it is not eaBy to
believe tbat it would be a ease for corruption If a man is base enough to
sell his vote is be not as likely to dispose of it when he ia compelled to cast
it as he is when tbe marking of the
ball t is a voluntary process? The
really corrupt elector would not bc

institution of the compulsory principal Tuday he votes, if bought, and,
failing thai, absents himself from the
polls. Under the compulsory plan
be will vote it ix.ugl.i. and,failing
that, co to the polls and spoil

GENTLEMEN:—Having been norainntcd to contest this
Hiding, I beg to offer you my best services, nnd to state that
if elected lo represent you, 1 will do tny utmost at all times to
advance the interests of the Hiding.
1 believe in clean Government, mid that tbe party in power
should l.e, beyond the suspicion of wrong doing.
In the matter of Public Works, I will see that we gel appropriations commensurate with tlie large amount of revenue
we turn into thc Treasury, nnd suitable to our extra heeds of
roads, trails, und bridges, and the proper maintenance ol same.
I believe in tlie return to n system of State Education,
which will allow proper salaries to our School Teachers; will
mnke provision for tlio up keep of Schools in the Rural Districts, and the free distribution of school books, etc.
1 will at nil times oppose lhe introduction of tlio Asiatic
element into our midst, or the bringing of aliens who cannot
be assimilated, into tliis province.
[ believe in tlio conservation of our lands and other assets
nml will strongly oppose tlio giving the same to Corporations,
1 believe in ibo reorganization of thc Lands Department,
niul would favor tin- surveying by Provincial Land Surveyors
of tlio binds suitable tin* agriculture or fruit raising, so lhat
proper information can be given intending settlers; also assistance to settlers in clearing the land and milking the same
"'available at an early dnte.
Awaiting the honor of your call, gentlemen, on the second
of February, 1 bog to subscribe myself,

how carefully the sun lias been excluded by closed shutters ni-d low-

general effect of dingincss peculiarly dispiriting to the frugal housewife.
For. ns none of ns needs to be
told, floors ninl windows ure tho
most serious items in computing

arc optional with the mistress. If Take that as your starling point,
there nre few, ingenuity is brought Have tlio carpet beaten fret- of

C.P.R. Doing lis Best to Relieve Suffering.
MONTREAL, Jan. 25.—Mr. William
Whyle, ^second vice-president of (lie
Canadian r.icific and General Manager
o: .vestern lines, wliu is here in consultation with the president regarding
the nature, extent and provision for
the work of the current year, stated
that never since tho Canadian Pacilic
hull entered the weet and never during
his ownjresidence there of more than
twenty years had storms oi such
violence heen experienced as there ha,
been this year.
ltwas solely owing to the great
resources tlmt were now .available f. r
copingjwith it that the people were
bnvtil from a great amount of fullering and death. The most serious
(eature'ol tbe case was tlm fnct that
the M'tllers hud heen deprived ol their
usual [stacks of coal by tbo strike at
Letlibridgejand were thus without tho
proper kind of {fuel required (or their
Tho only local cal that was suitable Jfi-r consumption under western
conditions wus the lignite produced
at J.ctl.bridge. But the company was
doing its best to relieve the situation
by letting the people have its own
supplies—thecoal it had] shipped for
its own use In in the Pennsylvania
minesjto Fort William, lt was selling the coal[nt ;ctst price, plus the
bare'eost of^freight.
The company felt that in thus disposing of |,its own coal whicli was
stored at Fort William, it was running a risk of having the Bj-rvice lied
up in tho wett, but they considered
they would l-cjustilied in risking that,
" Human life," said Mr. Whyte, "is
m .re precious than tbe hauling of
traffic, and if we prevent suffering and
death we shall feel that we have dune
better than if we simply regarded our
own interests. But we sincerely hope
this weather will not continue."

Further Continuance of Cold
Spell from North
Another cold wave is coming. This
snd oflicial intelligence has come fiom
the provincial forecast .llice at Victoria and corroborated locally. The
wave, however, is not such a cold one
as was the last. It is spreading southward, accompanied by fresh north
winds whicli being split up when tbey
reach here assume as a keener phase
and sweep in sometimes through the
Jordan nnd Eagle Passes nnd some
times through the Illccillewaet valley.
The temperaturo may tail to ahoul 20
below zero bul there is little indication to show that it will fall below
tlmt point nliln ugh the local precipitation may in a measure alleviate
somewhat the extremi cold.

and picked it up for tin* lady, but

say thank you, with the air of being
half ashamed of ins deed,

down the strei t. was gn eted with the
usual inquiry, "Have a paper, lady?"
and was about to say, "No," when she
recognized the little fellow's fnco, Ho

but quite cold now at night and In
the morning- and evcnlngd Wo.i, is
we drove into the town nor the bungalow where we ore staying is Just outride), the sun rose and the Btreets wore
full of light.
The town is all painted pink, which
makes it lii.* queerest-'ooktng place
vou ever saw, and on the outside of
the pink houses then are pictures
drawn, some of them very solemn and
some very' funny, which • makes It
very pleasant to drive up the street.
Wo drove through the Btreet which
was crowded with camels antl elephants and donkeys, and women
wrapped up like bundles, and men
chattering like monkeys, nnd monkeys themselves, and naked ilitio
children rolling in the dust, and playing queer Jeypore games, All the lit-
i!,. girls, when they get to be about
jour age, have jewels in their noses,
and the women all have their noBes
looking beautilul In ibis way. I have
got n nose i« wel for you, which I
shall pm in when 1 get home, und
also a little button for the side of
Susie's nose, such as the smaller children wear. Think ho v the girls at
school  will adinir.   ynu
Well, we drove oni the other sldf

toward the Old town. Which they deserted a hundred, years ago when
thev built Ibis. The prlcsl mid the

Young Conservative Associa
iion Spend a Pleasant Time
at Arrowhead.
A most enjoyable evening was spent
here on the 23rd, when members ol
the Revelsloke Young Conservative
Association to the number ol about
forty journeyed down and gave a
public entertainment to a large and
appreciative audience. A splendid
programme was excellently rendered
ib follows: —
Mesiri. D. McEaehern abd D. McKenzie, bagpipes; Messrs. W.Smythe,
P. Murphy, W. Humphreys, Hopkins,
and Dr. Morrison, songs; Mr. \V.
Humphreys, recitation. Messrs. B,
Crick, R. Veith and P. Murphy, instrumental selection!; Mr. Dickson, step-
dancing and Dr. Morrison, elub
W. W. Foster touched upon some
important political questions of the
day and advised his hearers not to be
misled by the interested statements
made by the Yellow Press ahd others
but to think earnestly lor themselves.
He bad, for a considerable time past,
very carefully studied the effect of
different administrations upon the
welfare nl the Province, and was
convinced that in order to insure the
cjiitinuiinoe ol the present prosperous
conditions ol B. C, a goud, stable
government was absolutely necessary.
The MoBride administration had succeeded in bringing us Irom prospective
I.*, kriiptry lo achieved prosperity,
un.l why change, when no plank in
the Liberal platform offered ua anything better, nor as good. He
therefore asked his hearers to support
the McBride administration by voting
for Mr. Taylor. At the conclusion ol
llie programme cheers were called for
Mr. Taylor and the McBride ministry,
Successful Function tor the
B. of.lt. T.
A succesBlul and most enjoynlle
evening was spent on Tuesday night
when the Ladies Auxiliary ol the Brotherhood cl Railroad Trainmen gave
au 'at home" in the opera house. The
ladies ai usual had got sll the arrangements down to a line point the reception work and management being in
the hands ot a committee consisting
ol Meedames Aghcw, T. Culey, Cormier and Pettipiece. The hall was
tastelully arranged with lounges and
cosy corner?, dancing and cards forming the evening's amiiienient. The
Independent band rendered a choice
selection of popular dance music.
About two hundred gueits sat down
to a well ordered supper the viandi all
beiug home made. The "at home"
besides being thoroughly enjoyed by
all was also a tinitiicial success.
Y. M. C. A.
Work in Western Canada,
The great advance in Y. M. C. A.
work during the Inst lew years has
warranted the Western Canadu committee ol the association in s curing
an able man to act as provincial
travelling secretary. The new man
Bicurod for tbe position is Charles R.
Saycr, ol Toronto, and he will travel
all over the prairie provinces and will
aim take up considerable work in
British Columbia, Many of the towns
in Alberta, Manitoba and Britisli
Columbia have at present building
operations underWeigh end others are
raising money lor new buildings. Mr.
Bayer his been connected with the
association work since 1887 and has
always been working in Canada.
The lirst real match ol tlie year
was played oh Thursday night in tlie
rink against a team Irom Arrowhead.
The match was called Ior 8 p. in. snd
by the lime the game commenced a
large number ol spectators were
present. From start to finish the
game belonged to the home boys, who
commenced by playing a good scientific
combination game and this combined
attack proved more than the Arrowhead boys cuuld withstand, although
they put up an excellent light, Individual play was good in both teams,
but the combination game, lor whicli
Keyelsloke boys in all sports are noted,
told heavily against Arrowhead, who
despite their valiant attempt tu break
their opponunls defence, were completely out manoeuvred, The game
roBiilted iu Revelstoke nine, Arrowhead (I.

Revelstoke Riding
GENTLEMEN: —Having again received the honor of the
unanimous nomination as the Conservative candidate at the
approaching Provincial elections, 1 tike this opportunity of addressing those ol my supporters and friends whom I may be unable to
meet personally, or who may be unable to attend thc various meetings oi electors whioh I shall address during the short campaign
which ia now on.
My record as a public man during tbe eight years I have bad the
honor to represent you is before you, and I challenge a:,y man tu lay
his linger on one single sot ol mine that was not in tlie interests oi
British Columbia and my own Riding, and I challeuge any man to
shew a single instance in which my own private interest wus forwarded or the public interest neglected l.y me. Practically my
whole time has been devoted to the public service, and, while my
private interests have in consequence suffered, I have been honestly
endeavoring to give the affairs ol this Province and Riding my best
attention and, these (acts being well known to the majority ol the
electors, I leel confident that on election day a sub.tantial majority
ol the electors ol this Riding will shew thcii appreciation ui my
efforts in the public interest by placing me at the head ..[ the poll,
It was largely owing to my efforts that the timber laws were so
amended as to make "she title to timber licences absolutely renewable
for extended terms ol years, thus rendering such titles secure and
inducing capitalists to come in and purchase ami develop our timber
resources and creating a high state of prosperity in the lun.her
industry in our midst.
I have been and am .. consistent supporter ol the Government
of Hon. Richard McBride.
That Government lias done more to bring about confidence in
tlie administration of the affairs of this Province and tu bring
about the present high state ol prosperity, credit ami stability in this
Province than any any previous Government wo have had, When
you recali the bad condition into which affairs had drifted prior to
Sir. Mc Bride's Government taking office, you will at once ugiee with
mo in the statement I have just made. Such lieing the case, 1 say to
you that no good reason can be shewn by the opposition why a
change should take place.
ln the matter of public works, the Government have ileult as
liberally with the different parts of the country us their limited
resources would permit, but now that the credit of the Province has
been re established and the public income has beeu so largely increased, it will be possible to undertake with confidence many important public works which will serve to develop the rich natural
resources ol the Province, and tliis will mean increased prosperity to
the miner, the lumberman, the larmer, the railway man and all
With regard to the Civil Service, I may say that my policy is
aud always has been to retain in the service men who are competent
and honest, irrespective ol their political leanings.
I am opposed to the granting of subsidies to railway-corporations.
The demand made upon the McBride Government by the Grand
Trunk Tacific Railway Company lor a land subsidy and other enormous conceiBious lor building through the northern part ol British
Columbia, I regard as an attempt to riile this Province ol some ol its
richest territory and rights, and, il elected, I shall oppose with all my
might the granting ol anv such proporty or concesiions to that or
any other company.
All of you are familiar wilh the cost uf opening up this vast
country in order to reach our mineral, timber and agricultural
resources. Thc provincial subsidy now paid by the Dominion to this
Province is wholly inadequate and entirely out of proportion to that
granted to the older and more settled Provinces and still more out ol
proportion to the share ol Dominion revenues this Province pays per
capita into the Dominion coffers, and I feel sure that every elector
knows lull well that it is only by taking such a firm stand as tlnit
taken by Premier McBride belore the Conlerence ot Provincial
Premiers at Ottawa recently, that this great wrong can he remedied,
and that if this Province is to he placed where she belong", namely,
in the front rank ol Canadian Provinces, it is only by endorsing
Premier McBride and his Government, in their fight (nr " Better
Terms lor Britisli Columbia " and Provincial rights, and that il a
Government made up of the present Opposition be placed in power at
this time, only a compromise measure suitable to the Ottawa Government and unlnir to this Province can In expected.
I therefore ask all fair-minded British Columbian.- iu this Riding
to study carefully the issueB ol this campaign and weigh curelully
the respective claims ol my opponent and myself to represent this
Riding, and 1 leel confident that alter jou have done so, you will
cast your ballot in my behalf on February 2nd and, il elected, I shall
continue to do all in my power to further the interests ol this Riding.
Your Obedient Servant,
Electors of the above meiitioneJ Electoral District, that in the
Election now pending, the respective candidates have appointed
the undermentioned person as his agent:
William I. Briggs, of Kevelstoke, Agent for Robert J. Caley.
Wallace VV. Lefeaux, ot Revelstoke, acts for himself.
Robert Smith, of Revelstoke, Agent for Thomas Taylor.
Of which all  persons are hereby required to take notice
and govern themselves accordingly.
Given  under my hand at Kevelstoke, this   Nineteenth
day of January, Nineteen Hundred and Seven.
