Nothing like it Iihb ever heen seen in

be content if a single individual of bis
opponents failed to lo-e his deposit.
The truth is that Mr. Mo Bride

Speaking-at Victoria Sir Hibbert
Tvpper said "1 was given an opportunity at Reveletoke this week, bow-

Lindmark—who is going to win and

Th.i'. 1 love so well.
The Polls should be closely
guarded to-morrow against
those who are not entitled to
To-morrow is Election Day.
The issues have heen discussed;
The electors have studied the
situation thoroughly and by
this time have made up their
minds as to how they will mark
their ballots.
Owing to the number of
new names added, the lists in
use tomorrow are practically
new. A large percentage of
the registered voters are out'
of the district.
This is a situation that gives
the unscrupulous an opportunity to impersonate and repeat
iheir Votes where the polling
booths.ate so close.
The scrutineers should be
careful to see that no man is
allowed to mark a ballot who
is not entitled to do so. The
law is very slrict and any person caught in the act ol im
personation, or repeating his
vote should be dealt with right
on the spot.
Vote to Start Work Replaced On
lions. Pugsley, Minister ol Public
Works, C. .1. Murphy, Secretary ol
State, and Prank Oliver, Minister ol

to Hevelstoke tn have tlie vote for

Premier McBride aud Attorney-
General Bowser have sent du.ly bluets
of tlieir trumpet to the Government
press announcing tbeir triumphal
march through southern B. C. Tlie
Keruie Oaily tells a diH'urent story
aud deecribes tbeir meeting there as
"McBride and Bowser Discover North
At Westminster li. E, McCruasan
paid: "The campaign has Ih.c.i sprung
ou us without warning when we are
still without voters' lists; lists which
we shall uot be able to procure ior at
least ten days. Tbe effect aud iuteul
ol tins move ou the part of tbe Mc-
Brule-Bowser government is to
throttle tbe Iree expression ._( opinion
of the voters uf British Columbia ou
the great questions coufiouling lhat
province. Nomination Day has come
and gone and still we bave nu voters'
lists; a condition unique and uuparal-!
leled throughout the polititioal bis-
toiy of Canada.
With reference to tbe railway policy
it was not as if tbe province had a
lirst mortgage un the line. As the
scheme now stands he poiuted out tbe
railway company and tbe province arc
in the position of joint mortagors
wbile tbe bondholders ure *,hc mortgagees. The proposed road will not
oe in a position to pay the interest ou
Ub bunds for years and years out of
the earnings ol tbis section of the line
There is no provision in the agreement givicg the province coulrul of
tbe freight rates."
Discussing McBride's change ol
(rout in regurd to timber licenses al
Fernie, John Oliver propounded this
query: "If McBride is prepaied to
'eat crow,' can he vouch for all bis
followers doing the same?" a proposition that again struck borne and
elicited loud applause.

'Tbey should not be allowed to buili

"until they have what they now con

Speaking at Vernon, Mr. K. 0

was apparently prepared t.. -train every means and power al his command,
notwithstanding his oath ol oflico
which he had  thereby abjured.
The incapability ol 11 bench sn constituted was evidenced by the fact
thut they wanted to pill -<(i,iMto bail
on my head and when I objected, they
practically snid "What will ynu give?"
And Ihey cumo down to S-1,000 in two
sureties of ^2,110" each as well as my
own recognisance of like amount. I
don't know how they arrived nl ihis
amount but presume they figured that
my exposures of Hon. Tom Taylor
nnd his Tammany Boss, Police Magistrate Foster, might fairly be set at
the year's sulury uud expenses that
the Hon. Tom, as Minister of Public
Works, would draw from the taxpayers of British Columbia.
The fact thnt the County Courl considered u personal recognisance of
itiHHI sufficient only magnified tho monstrosities of judical administration in
The next scene in whieh Mr. Foster
appeared was in the tampering with
Court documents. 1 tried to got u
trinl at once before a superior court
but 1 found that while the bail bond
originally fixed Kevelstoke a- the
place of trial it had since been altered
to Kamloops. The result wus thai nt
the time of the first hearing the documents were found uot to be ut Revelstoke but bad been sent to Kamloops
because the policeman, this man Kington, hud told XX. V.. McLaughlin, clerk
of the court, the ease hud to go to
Kamloops. So wheu this excuse was
given Judge Forin he suid to Mr. McLaughlin: "You have uo business to
take nny instructions from anybody
but mo as to the wuy in which my
court is to be run. Neither lhe police-
num (Kingtou) tmr anybody else has
any right to dictate to ynu as t,, the
business of ihis court. I told you to
fix the silting ol the court nnd it was
your duty to do it. Ii anyone has
any objection lo my jurisdiction ii is
bis duty to cnnic here and make his
objection, .1 u-^i give me thai objection thai I may enter it iu the records
of llie court for future reference.''
Well anolher date was set  by Judge
Forin  for  tho  hearing,  uud  again      1

want       tn   find     out   when   this   change

Mr. Gillan—1 understand from those
who were present this was read out
as  "Kootenay."
Hi- Honor—Mr. Wells, une ni the
sureties, spoke in nn- about ii and
said it  wns read out a-  "Kootonay."

change was made subsequently ami if
he was committed to Koolenay it

His Honor—The change wa., apparently made iroiu Koolenay to Yale at
a different time and iu different ink.
lt is a different impression.
His Honor haviug expressed a wish
to hear what the justices who heard
the ease hnd to suy about the alteration ol the boud, Mr, Foster appeared aud the following  took  place:
Judge Forin—When did you make tho
change frum Kootenay to Yale?
Mr Foster—Belore or at the time
the bond was signed, nud I drew their
attention to it in some wuy. I am

A telephone message was recoived
from Mr. Abruliumson, who was ill in
bed, but he j_jol up arid went in the
phone to advise the Judge that when
he signed ihe bond it was for appearance in Koolenny.
Mr. Gillan—1 understood it wns for

Thnt work necessitated accuracy. Yet
the lirst time he conies beforo n Judgo
to defeud his alteration of u court document he makes a statement that
bo-urs on its face its own refutation .
The. Judge said ibe change w-us made
in a different ink und ut a different
lime, The dilleretue in color uf tho
ink  wus      probably      tlie sume ns   the
difference in     the ink at  the oflli f
the Globe Lumber Company where Mr.
Foster worked, und the court-house
where the bond wus originally drawn.
Then he says he drew our attention to
it. nt the time. He was noi certain us
to how he did it but romemborod it
plito well. Thut is his mind was as

Now   I   have a  eol'tifiod   ollicial   copy
.f    the     bond.   The     alteration from
Kootenay   lo  Yale was  made in      Mr.
Foster's  handwriting  und  bear-      tho

Messrs. Foster und Jackson, Well-, Abrahamson  nml   Haggen  all  signed   the
boud, and as parties In il  Mr. Foster,
as   a   business   man,  handling  business
documents, well knew nil parties  to a
bond should also Initial any alteration.   That  is  conclusive evidence that
Foster  did  not  alter   the  bond beforo
nr at  the time,, or draw the attention
of     anybody     to it,  but  did  il   after
wards     when      he found he had mnde
such a mess of things  thnt   he wnnted
to send the ease away from Revelstuke
at   any     cost,     and would  havo  beeu

There was lhe further fad thai, although the Judge sent for Mr. .luck-
son, he     was  not     given  the Judge's
message  when il  found  he stated    his
recollection  of  the  bond   was   that    it
wns for Kootenay,  and  that  the case
would be. tried ut  Hevelstoke, and not
at   Kamloops,    1      huve   ulso evidence
that   Mr. Jaeksou was asked at     that
time to give nn affidavit  to help   Mr.
Foster out of this mess and refused to
do  it,   though  afterwards  he  gave  the
affidavit  published iu the issue of Nov.
10th,   That affidavit does not  help Mr.
Foster one  iota.   Mr.   Jackson      dues
not, and will not swear, the bund was
altered Irum      Koolenny  to  Yale,     or
thai   Mr.   Fosier   told   the   truth   "hen
he said   he  called  the  attention uf  my

son swear that? The bund wns unl

Mr. Kington swears Mr. Foster was
lhe man who Iuul possession and control uf it a- he (Kingtou) dopositod
it in tin- -afe in Mr. Foster's nffico.
Mr. Jackson knows he initialled no
alteration, as he Bhould lune done
had il been mude. and the whole evidence goes in show it wus altered idler ihe proceedings and ihe. fact  thai
it   was   placed   ill   the  safe   ill   Mr.   Fns-
ler's office afforded the opportunity in
make the alteration.
i'he affidavits put in at the trial al
ihe Supreme Courl at Kamloops by
Messrs. F. ti. Wells. .1. Ahrnhiiin-uu,
F. Fraser, XX. I. Briggs, and myself,
und already published in full, -honed
that Mr. Foslor's Hlnlomoiil tn Judge
Forin vvns absolutely false.
'I'he next   inun  ivo  have   uu   Ilu-scene
signs himself "II. Kington, provincial
constable." He swear- I told him the
Judge had been seen und ull lixed up
thut afternoon beforo the preliminary
hearing. I novor told Kington .-un
such thing uml cuuld uut have   done
lu the fust place I did mil ihink
Mr. Foster wuuld have lhe indecency
to insist on hearing the ense. lu the
second place 1 was noi guilty of the
offence charged, ind knew thul us
soon «is I gut my evidence before the
court 1 must be acquitted, and I Incuse could  mil  i;n  to any oilier court.
Consequently thi- affidavit of Kington's contains stnlemoiils Ihul only
exist in his imagination. Besides 1
hnd no use for Kington und he is not
the kind of man with whom I should
discuss anything. I had already criticised the discharge of police dutie in
the  press.   The cap  lifted,  for   he   im-
mediately pul ii on.   He called un 	
and put  nu a- much  bluff and  side as
Hilly   ItoMset       Ile      told   mc   he        klleW
lhe law ftOUl beginning tu end, and I
-•uu hi hnn only another ol Ihe thtugs
that eonslitutu the police force ol this
provinoe and have earned for il the
cunleinpl   uf  all  good  citizens.      When
this man swears th,. bund read 'Yale'
iii lhe face uf ilu- absolute proof to
the contrary, it unly shows the necessity of cleansing lhe Augean stable
which lias grown up under Tuylorism
and l'osiei'ism, and restoring the administration of the law lu lhe builds
uf those who have sonic rospoct for
truth iuul public decency.
This uHidnvil loo bears on its face
it- own refutation. Mr. Kingtou
swears "No change wus mnde after
lhe signature by the accused nnd sureties ns 1 could huve seen it hud il
beeu done." How can bu swear lo
such rubbish when he admits leaving
lhe bond in Mr. Foster's ollicu. Does
he want us to believe Mr. Foster locked him up in ilm safe along with it,
and that ho hud his eye on it from
that time till the altered document
cumo to light in tho county courl'/
While these, documents are published
as affidavits, perhaps I am wrong in
milling ihem such. No jural showing
before whom they were taken accompanies them, although the Intention
was lo make tho public believe they
ure sworn documents.
Well, the, effect of ull this was that
Mr. Foster pays mysterious visits to
tho Const, i'he Attorney-General, to
help him out, employed XX. A. Mao-
lonald, K. C, ol Vancouver, at heavy
expense tn the public trousury, to come

whore the witnesses were, und on the
misrepresentation to Judge Forin by
Mr. Foster becuuse of his great position as polico magistrate, I had to go
to Kamloops and take mj' counsel
and witnesses ihere nl gl'Olll personal
expense, while the Atlomey-Gonorul
aguin employed W. A. Maodonald, K.

Therefore Socialism analysed Ilio
capitalist system from the poinl ui
view- of uther previous systems. lie
referred to tlie Berf system of labor,
which was '.tic outgrowth of the previous system and was succeeded by the
wage system.
Socialism was a system of thought,
•ailed the dialectic system. Wage
Invery had succeeded chattel slavery.
Many working men objected to the
U-tu_. iil; claimed they were not wage
slaves When u working man became
acquainted wiih the system under
whicn he worked he would find there
was no interest in common between
him and the capitalist. Then ho
would be the tirst to see that wage
lavery existed. Socialism was in op-
pooition to the old system of thought,
Ibe metaphysical, which they heard
from iheir pulpits. Socialism doall
"!'!i the material side of life, and
when t lies' adopted the new system
they were re-.,ihni,mists in thought,

electors of this cily hud been particularly fortunate in having the groal politicians from the I'rcinier himself, and
ihey no doubt urged them to vote for
the old party tickets, Now tho Socialist party appealed to only ono
class, and thai was the workers. They
did not it'll ihem Ihey were going lo
build railways und dovelop tho country. How much had they seen ol the
old parties since 1 he} slanted their
votos? Tho Socialists were at il 366
days in the sear educating the people
in their cause. Lust year they had
5,5811 voles for .Socialists in the liritish Columbia elections. Thut was to
say one voter in eleven voted the Socialist ticket. I'hey svould know nexl

11.     Kempster
the Soeiulint  cawlidute,  who was  the'
next speaker,     said    tho time allowed
him wus brief, but  he would like     to
sny     a few     words in the interests of
the class he represented,  the     wage-
workers.    The  wage-workers  bud   tried
strikes iiti'l lock-outs and  all other remedies they could adopt but  had   not
boon able to get ahead and got satisfactory adjustment of their grievances.
They had never been able to get      the
militia   out   to   safeguard   their   interests,  nor     had   they been able lo got
injunctions   to  pro teet   them.   The    system under which they lived had been
found  to  be      wrong and   thpy wanted ■
to srel  'l changod to a new and better j
ayetottii     by    which     the labor of the
workers   would be    employed to produce for uso and not  for profit. Thev
had the experience of tht* capitalist legislation they got from the Honorable
member  who   had  represented   them   in 1
the legislature halls,for the past     ten !
years.    If ihey     did    not know his re- |
COl'd  let   them  read   the  Clarion.  What I
tould they expect from  thoir opponent
Mr.   Lindmark, who, while he had     no
doubt ho would prove n faithful servant* |
would  not   represent   the  interest        of ;
the waETC-earners.    If   they  looked into
tlie matter they would find iheir interest would not be reprenemed by Mr.
Lindmark or Mr. Taylor. They knew
what Mr. .Taylor was in the face of
his past record. That was why he was
in the contest.    (Cheers).
C, P. Lindmark
wa« the best speaker, and was received with hearty cheers. He said la-
was before them that night for the
first lime. This was a unique experience for him, because speaking wus
not his long suit, lie had always
tried to work and let those follows
who were filled with hot air talk as
much ar- they liked. (Cheers and
laughter)< Talk was cheap and the
only thing lhat counted was hard
work. The chairman was good enough
to refer to him as a man who nevor
losi a fight, but he was always careful before he went into one to seo
that he was in the right. (Cheers),
lie had always aimed to stay wilh

lhal the government had tried to
force on them withoul a minute's notice he was ihere to oppose to the
lasl ditch, because it was not in lho
interest of the province and not in lhe
interest of Kevelsloke Riding.
He produced a map issued by lho
govermneut in connection with this
campaign as showing the effect of their
railway policy and pointed out there
was a great blank where Kevelstoke
and Arrowhead should be. These
towns, although represented by a
Cabinet Minister, were wiped off the
map. and thai was about the effoct
the railway policy, if carried out,
would have on thorn, an it would eut
off on the south the business that now
came through Arrowhead and Kevelsloke and would also CUt off Kevelsloke on the north. Thoy could see
from Mr. Taylor's posters lhal he was
endeavoring to make a greal doal of

this *15,000,1100 for? Sometimes they
(jot t'icldy in talking about large sums
of money, but the lime hud come
when Ihey had to consider whal these
figures meant. What would be lho
resuli of burdening the province with
this guarantee of $45,000,000? It
would so tie up their credit and finances thul they would be unable to Gu-
once those undertakings which, from
time to lime, they might lind necessary for the good uf the province, ami
which   its   development   might   require.
j They did not want to be stampeded.
Some of lhom knew, and some of them
might noi know, that if a man put
his endorsement to the back of a note
! if the other mun failed tu pay it he
'would have to do so, Now the way
■ the thing stood wus this. The province was lo guarantee these bonds a-
| mounting to 815,000,000 in all, $21,-
000,(111(1 principal and the balance iu
interest over ihe terms of tho bonds,
lie would nol make any objection if
they had any value for this $45,000,-
ooo. lim practically all Ihey wore to
gel for it was 195 miles of new country opened up. The real ot the O0o
miles the government claimed ihey
wen- gotting paralleled in existing
roads and opened up no new country,
Ho had no objection to the opening
of tho oouutry between Ten- Jaune
('ache and Kamloops as that was uew
country, bin the rest of the road was
simply paralleling  tho C. 1'.  It.
A leading ('. P. It. ollicial i„| I in,,,
that ihey could haul out ol lho section paralleled by ihis road the .viiule
production of that country for a year
on one truin, Ile objected to involving tho province to this extent for nny
sueh inadequate  result.   (Cheers).
Mr. Lindmark theu draw the attention of the audience to the government map which he had lixed on lho
wall. This was one of tho maps with
which Ilon. _\lr. Taylor's committee
had been embellishing the billboards
and walls of lhe olootoruto. Mr, landmark showed from the map the amount of new territory opened up and
how the proposed line paralleled the
(-'. P. li. to Aggasiz, where il crossed
the Fraser River and then paralleled
the II. C. 1'.. R. to Westminster. Mr.
Thompson interrupted the speaker repeatedly, whereupon Mr. Lindmark
called him up to show him where Kevelsloke and Arrowhead were ou Mr.
Taylor's map. Ile dolied him lo liml
ihem. Mr, Taylor's own constituency
was wiped off the map. II,- challenged
Mr. Thompson to say "hear hear" to
lhai amid loud choors, and needless to
say Mr. Thompson did not interrupt
any more. Wlij were McHride and his
government iu such a hurry lo put
through this deal? Something was
wrong. Why did thoy not give the
people aoinc reusocuvbl.. ii,,,,. t,, ,.,,,,.
sider a matter of such importance ?
Their only answer could be  lhal  ihey
1 were afraid of public opinion looking
.too closely into this dual and (lectin •
! iug to .approve of it,
I When Mr. Roblin wns making the
deal with the C, V ll. for Manitoba,
he called  the  Hoards ,,i Trade and  re-
Iproseutativos of public bodies into
conference on tho matter, s,_, that the
public  interest   should   be  safeguarded,
Iwith the result that whereas the government guaranteed tho bonds of Mc-
1 Menzie and Mann to the extent of s-IO,
1000 u mile, lhe people got full villus
for their guarantee in reduced rates
and other advautages. Hut here in
Uritish Columbia they were asked to
cuter    into      a  contrail   to  guarantee
, these bonds to the extent of 836,000 a
mile without over being consulted in
the matter,
In this campaign it was not their
intention to say anything reflecting
on Mr. Taylor's porsonul character.
They would deal with his career simply as u publio man. (Loud and pro
longed applause).

of course be an expensive undertaking

because when Mr. McBrido held up his
thumb Mr. Taylor sut down.(Laugh -

Taylor about his weakness in ihi- respect. Thej did not elect Mr. Taylor
to knuckle down and flu anything he
was told by Premier McHride. They

Provincial Elections 1909
To the Electors of Revelstoke
GENTLEMEN:—I have the honor to announo* my candidature
for tbe representation of Revelstoke Hiding in tbe election to be held
on   November   26th, and  request   the   favor of  your support in this
contest.    Tup following ia my platform ;—
Completion ul the Canadian l'aoifio Railway Company's Arrow-
bead & Kootenay line to open up ihe rich mint-nil renourcet uftlio
lardeau autl Fish Creek, and make tbe fruit and farm lauds of
Benton, Halena Bay, Comaplix, aud Camborne available to the best
markets, besides placing Arrowbead on a main transcontinental lino
nl railway and making it tbe principal shipping port nnd manufacturing centre on the Arrow Lakes. The construction of this railway
will establish through connection between the main and Crow's Nest
lines uf the C. 1J. R. system. Thin will result in Revelstoko becoming
tbe main junction und railway centre ol Interior British Columbia,
and pave the way fur making this city the Spokane of this fnir Province. Any financial assistance that mny be necessary from the
Provinc to ensure tbe immediate construction ol this road should be
willingly rendered.
I be construction ol a railway ii|i tbe Ooluiubi.i and Canoo River
valleys to open up Revelstoke's licbt-st heritage lo the north should
be pushed ahead. When in Revelstoke recently Hon. Frank Oliver,
Minister of the Interior, made public tin- nsBiiratice that the
D iminion Governmenl would give iho assistance neoeseary to secure
the construction ol a railway to ipen up ibis county, and il any
furtbir assistance should be uquired to secure its en ily coustruotiou
it should be given by the Province.
The Government's railway policy, proposing to tie up the credit
of the Province to the extent of $45,000,000 in principal and interest
ior a railway tbat must be built in any case to complete the Canadian
Northern Transcontinental syetem, and which opens up only
two hundred miles of new territory in the North Thompson Valley,
is i.ne which should be opposed by every well wisher nf Revelstoke.
8ucb a policy, if carried out, would be a serious tiling, for not
only would it destroy the credit uf the Province fur an extensive development und railway construct iun policy fur which this Province
will be required in the near future to provide, but ho fur as Hevelstoke
is concerned it would cut this city off both north and south Irom the
business properly belonging to it. Tbe northern business would be
diverted down the North Thompson Valley to the Coast, whilo the
southern trallic which now forms such a large volume of the transportation business coining through Hevelstoke would be diverted byway of tbe Okanagan and Nicola Valleys, thus largely reduoing the
railway labor employed here. A more suicidal policy, so tar as Revelstoke if concerned, wsb never placed before the people of this city
and district, aud I call on every mau interested in the Revelstuke
Ridiug to rally round me, and Btop once and lor all the attempt so
deliberately put up to injure this section ol the Province, whioh nu
many ol us have spent the best yours ol our lite in endeavuring to develop and build up.
Considering tbe iuiuieuse revenue contributed by the Revelatoke
Hiding in tbe shape ui Timber Licenses, the Kevelstoke Ridiug hae
uot had a e'juare deal, and it is time it got oue. The Riding should
be uiieutd up by a thorough systt in of roads aud trails constructed iu
s peruiauent manuer uud under competent supervision. The first
worki tbat should be undertaken iu this direction are:—
Construction of a waguu road between Revelstoke and Arrowhead.
Construction and operation of a tramway past Death Rapids.
Construction ol such portions of road as are required to give the
best possible transportation to Big Bend aud point* between Rovelstoke and Tete Jaune Cache, so that RevelBtoke, as tbe nearest busi-
neee centre thereto, shall share in the benefits resulting Irom tin-
large expenditure in the construction of the Grand Trunk I'acilic ami
Canadiau Nurtheru railways west of Yellowhead Pass.
Construction of the balance of the ruad from Revelstuke through
the Eagle Pais to give the settlers of Malakwa and uther puints tbe
access they desire to this city.
A ne« Court House, Provincial Gaol, aud Land Registry Othce
should be provided at Reveletoke without delay.

(in November 25lh the electorate ot
liritish Columbia will decide for "i
against the railway policy ui lhe McBride government, and as to what
thnt verdict will be no man cun yet

partisan, that his policy will, or it
will not, win, but the man not a parti
sun will give the argument presented
by either sido a cureful bearing, and
will vote accordingly- und tho numbei
who are uot active partisans will cast
I the deciding vote. It will be readily
admitted by ull who discuss the matter with fairness that since the present government has been in power the
! country has made wonderful progress.
lit will be further admitted thai times
land conditions havo lieen the reasons
'for Ihis progress, but thut Mr. McBride's government has been ulerl and
has done many things for which it is
entitled to credit, and with oqual fairness it may be said that the late Fin-
nncc Minister, oud his eoUonguo, Commissioner of Works l-'ul ton were
among the Premier's most valued col-
leugues. Giving all credit to the Mr-
Bride government for what it has
done for the past six years, we arrive
up to the presont.

The Opposition have their Slander Committees
out. and you will be surprised at the number of lies
they can hatch between now and Election Day.
Pay no attention to them. The fact that they are
springing these slanders at the last moment when
they think I shall not have the opportunity of refuting
them is the best evidence you can have that
Mr. Taylor's Cause is Lost
before a vote is cast at the Polls Tomorrow.
Otherwise why this necessity to resort on the
eve of Election to Slander and Lying by these Slander Committees appointed for thts discreditable
