The room bus probably  never seen

reception given to Sir Richard     McBride hb he  walked up  the Moor      ol
the  convention hall.    He  was accompanied by the Hon. W.J. Bowser and
the  Hon.  H.K.  Young,  and  as they
approached the    platform the whole
audience  rose  to  their  feet  cheering
lor several minutes unci seiiging "For

applause had scarcely  BUbsided  when
lifter a  few   words of introduction    by
acting  President  Shutford, the  Premier arose  to address the  tbe delegat.

to  their  feet      nnd   gave  an  ovation,

Sir Richard McBride proved himself

The above are the i ssential paragraphs of the constitution of the Cit
iu'lis League which was inaugurated
at a meet ing held in the city hall on
Monday night, when there were, present Mesdames Stevenson, Busulcy

Laing, Miss Hardy, Revs, Bnohley
Hall and Stevenson, Mtssis. II. Man
i Ing, W. Bews, R. Tapping, T. Pug-
din, W. Johnson, W. A. Gordon, C.
B. Hume N. R. Brown, and seveicil
Mr. Manning was voted to the
chair on the motion of Mr. Bews, sec
onded by Mr. Tapping.
Mr. Manning said the objects ofthe
meeting were well known. It had ar
isen out of Br. Hendersons visit some
time ago. It was proposed to form
an association along the lines of a
citizens league and he th. night it
would be well to elect otlicers and
bear from them the lines of the work
and the plans fpr carrying the work
The Rev. Stevenson i.ctei'. as secretary pro tem at the request ol the
chairman, and read lb minutes 'of
1 revious meetings.
Mr. Pagden stated that the nominative committee previously ap -
pointed had met and decided to sug
gest names for otlicers including Mr.
W. Baws as president, Mr. Munning
as vice-president, Mrs. stmdy as secretary, and Mr. Johnson as treasurer, Several names were BUggested as
members of the executive.
Mr.    Bews said    that  feeling  that
something      on      th"    lines proposed
should be done he had felt it his duty to uccept the nomination,  but    if
they cjuld obtain abettor man   for
tbe  position  he  would  gladly    stand
aside  as  he  could   be  helpful    apart
from being an official.
Mr. Tupping—Stick to your guns,
you are the best man  we can  get.
The nominations as above were agreed to, und Mr. Bows took the chair
amid applause.
Un a ballot Messrs. N. R. Brown,
Iiume und Mrs. McLean were appoint
ed as the executive.
Mr.   Pagden   said  the      nominative
committee decided to recommend that
all clergymen  in  town should  be ex
officio members ol the executive.
The Bev. Stevenson thought it
would be unwise ut the very sturt to
depart from the constitution which
they had adopted. The constitution
suid nothing about clergymen being
ex-offlcto members of the executive,
ind if it was desired to call them
in it would be better to cull them in
as consultative members.
The executive wus intended to deal
with everyday atlairs und be thought
it would be wiser that ministers as
such should not appeal on the executive. The executive would not take
any aggressive action without consulting the league and that would
give opportunity for ministers views
to  be ascertained.
The Rev. Lashley Hull said on this
question he could not see eye to eye
with the Rev. Stevensen. He- thou -
ght the suggestion rather an anain -
oly inasmuch iib if ministers were to
be edeHive forces anil make diiiy references from the pulpit from time to
time they must be ou the inside or
they would not be able to deal with
matters with the requisite degree of
(onhdence. This was the first time
he had heard of the clergy being expressly excluded from any move
ment of this kind. He felt strongly
that this suggestion would bo a tactical blunder. They could not expect
ministers to come in on sufferance,
ininisters were leaders and occupied
a peculiar position. They could not
possibly be associated with any mov
ement on such terms. The movement
was primarily and essentially a moral movement and it struck him as a
tactical blunder to make such a suggestion. He would like to know
the reasons that had led to this view
He waB very sorry he hud not been
indirectly approached about the matter before the meeting because he
thought it would have been better
had he known.
The Rev. Stevenson said the Rev.
Lashley Hall was present at the meet
ing at which the constitution was
adopt id. He would be glad to do
what he could anyway and he wanted to be associated with this move
ment not because he was a minister,
but by virtue of his position as a cit
izen of Revelstoke.
The Rav. Lushley Bull said he
.mist beg to differ. He bad hud a
good deal longer experience than Mr.
Stevenson in regard to this work iu
British Columbia and he felt Mr.
Stevenson's suggestion to he a tucti-
cal blunder. He would do what was
in his power, but it stood to reason
he could not hold himself responsible
to ta'te any action in any way unless he was in the tirst place associat
ed wit'i the formation of the policy .
'Ihey could easily see that a public
man, a minist.r, could not do 'chat.
He strongly inclined to the view that
this would be a tucticul blunder.
Mr. Pagden said his impression
from previous meetings was that the
suggestion to have ministers as cx-
ollicio members of the executive was
in harmony with the views of both
ministers and the closest approach
they could get to paying then the
respect  they   wished  to do.
Mrs. S1 urd . i i seal --l i ...a the matter should stand over for the necessary amendment  of the constitution.
Mr. Tapping moved that the matter be lei! to ihe executive and be
brought up ut the next meeting.
The Chairman said he felt it would
he an advantage to have ministers
ex-otlicio members of the executive,
lut he did not want his view to In-
I'uepce anyone else.
Mr. Manning moved that the matter he deferred tothe next meeting,
which Mr. Johnson seconded. Mr.
Tapping withdrew his motion and Mr.
.Manning's   was  carried.
Mr. Tupping asked (or Information
as to terms ol  membership.
The Rev. Stevenson thought they
should start enrolling members right
away and getting in money. They
could not do work of this kind with
out money.
Rev. Lashley Hall asked would it
not be iisvisable to have- .-n express
ion of opinion from the meeting as
to fe°s instead ■ >f the dollar sub.
mentioned iu tho constitution, die
idea was to have as many as possi
ble associated with the work. There
were pros and cons on the Bide both
c>f a special fee and of personal contributions. He wanted to get at the
largest number of people.
Mr. Manning said if tiny wanted
anything to be n failure let them giva
a man  Something  for  nothing.    There-
was no reason  why one or two men
should    advance     the rlty's  welfnre
themselves, this was up to every citizen and each should dig down       and
also  work.    They  had  got to a  stag-
ill   this  city      when  it  took   courage,
nerve and the best people in the city
to have the courage of their conviction to enter that     hull  that night.
Kveryonc was known for u (prtnin re-
uson, he knew it    and they knew it.
They  had  had  experience  of  it.       If
they  wished  to  make  this u success,
to mill it to the cross, and go after
Something they wanted and had inadr
up  their   minds to do  so they  should
not let  it  die a  natural  death   before
almost,  the birth  took  place,    Then-
was  nothing  n      mini  detested  morn
than  the   passing  of      the  hut.        We
have started  as a  legitimate    body
and  they  had started on the     right
road.   They did not want to tnke up
anything that win antagonistic   unless it was absolutely  necessary,  but
if it should be necessary he sincerely
trusted   there  would  be  grit enough
in    that organisation  to  turn  round
and carry it through.   There     would
be things ceeine up from time to time
he understood such  as bylaws    that
would  require some  organisation and
a Utile thought before they were pas
sod by  the city.   They should     look
before the leaped and think about it
liefeei e  they   authorised    expenditure,
sponsible  for  placing  the  money    in
and  not grumble at the city council
because  of  taxes  if  they  had   been re-
their   hands,    There   would   be     other
subjects.    IP- spoke  with all  earnestness  when   l-e-  addressed  them  as    regards  Bome  of  the  places  their  lads
Were   allowed     to go Into,   from 11
years up.    lie had been on the school
board   (or the   last   ten  years  and    ho
had had   .evasion   to  take  notice      ol
some boys entering places,   Mothers,
if they  were aware of the facts  would
weep,   They must take notice and see
if it ceiniei net pe remedied,   This was
the .dace they  had to live in whether
it was or was not the mosl  beautiful
spot on earth, and there was no place
like home.    He had not joined      the
organisation  with uny. intention   of
being  ill   any   way  antagonistic      hut
for the betterment of the city.      He
believed  they  were seeing better times.   I'ii'y hud   organisations     which
beat tin- -ialciiiri i lenient in tins city.
Eut perhaps this was too »■:.11y     to
mention    these  things.   They     were
there to advance the best interests of
the city.   He congratulated  them up
'on  the appointment of Mr.  Hews,   as
president.    They   wanted a   few     good
strong      healthy  people on  the  right
Bide   and   twenty   WhO   meant   l.u-:: BS
was better thu i e  mob there for   no
other     purpose that to  trail     them
down at certain times.   (Applause).
The   Chairman   endorsed   Mr.   Manning's remarks!   He hud been in conversation   with  people  in  town,    and
had  been  surprised  :it  the      amount
of sentiment in favor of such an   organization, a great  deal which    was
not  represented     that  night.   Tbero
was a Btrong  feeling thit something
should be done.   He had accepted the
position as president  perhaps bl
of the manner In which he bad been
approached on so many different   occasions  to  stand for  office as  Mayor,
iii declined everyone ot those re
quests, though it was very hard indeed to do so to some' ol them as he
felt he was not fitted fi r it. He felt
such an organization as that would
be a means to an end and the giving
ol attention to (acts concerning the-
city ami     the training so    received
would lit a  man      tee accept  nomine
tion for such an oflice in a years time
perhaps,     Noi that h.-   would   take
thai   position  again,   it would  not be
u matter of seeking  on  his part.    As
to the opinion  eif some that things
were In a bud shape in th; city, thai
might be so in some regards, hut   in
others  they      might   be  better  than
they  thought.    They  could  judge that
hy   comparisons      with     other   cities.
Since  Ins  term  m   ihe city  ceeiincil he
had  kept his  eyes open  in  municipal
matters and hud paid soma attention
to the annual financial btatelriVnts.
There l.e had noticed increases in
some departments of the muuugcment
of tin city which bad i n very marked since- 1010, He thought citizens
should Investigate und get to know
about things. He had nothing t..
say about the present council, perhaps some of them ha 1  l-oiic- in as he
did in comparative n'"' ranes of what
they hud to contend With! He judged from the reports in tin paper that
some ol the members knew nothing
about qui'stions that w.re I r,eight up
He  eliel   not   blame-   them   lor   th.it      ■•
oauM he had the same- experience. He
felt that the- league ".did take- up
thi'se   matters and see tint bybc I
leady existing were enforced,      The
loiilevaids Should l»' kepi trimmed
to add to the appearance of the city.
The   bylaws  they   had  should   he      en
fonvei. There were metteri .pertaining to tin- moral condition of the city
to which Mr. Manning bad referred
in  regard  to  Which  bylaws had      not
I n  infieired.    He believed  if  the cit-
izciifl signed a petition te. the council
that they were desirous that bylaws
should be enforced the council would
do its duty, i'nly a few yt-iirs ago
a petition was presented as to the
gambling   with   slot .machines,       and
th.ct bad been stopped iii hotels nnd

fice. I have gone on record repeatedly, both here and in. the East, that
we want no favors from the Ottawa
government, and all that we demand
is fair and legitimate recognition.
This has been withheld until two
years ago, when the Borden administration, acting on the advice of 'The
Solid Seven,' in the Dominion House
and with the approval of the people
of this province initiated the pro -
gram of public works and undertakings that to some extent, is commen
surate with our just dues.
"Millions of dollars are involved in
carrying to completion this great pro
gram, and already activity is giving
proof that the votes and nppropria -
tions mean substantial improvements
I have every reason to believe that
within the next few months th<5
whole of the vast program of the Bor
den Government in British Columbia
will be under way.
"The ministry at Ottawa has realized that adequate harbors and docks
are necessary if we are to reap the
advantage of our transcontinetal rail
ways and the operation of the Panama Canal. Mr. Borde.i has realized
that such improvements are not lo -
cal, but national, affecting, as they
do, the Provinces in the Bast and in
the middle of Canada r.o less than
British Oolambia.
"Ottawa has lately given evidence
that it is actively concerned with a
problem in which this Province is vitally Interested. I refet -to the Asiatic qucation, and if the pi ogress has
not been quite as rapid ca Bome of
us would have us would have wished
we must appreciate the magnitude of
the task and the grave and serious
complications involved in the iBsue.
"We Conservatives, are, above all
th'ngs, constitutionalists, and the
attitude we have taken In this mat-
t r is not beyond the bounds of constitutional law. We haV9 set ourselves to consec-ve the Province of
British Colum'iia for the white man
and the Dominion of Canada for our
own race. I do not mean any offonce
to the yellow men across the Paciiic
because we stand for a white British
Columbia. I believe In A,=ia for Asiatics, Japan for the Japanese, Chi.
na for the Chinese, and India for th2
Hindu, and I would take it as no im-
position if the same restrictions wen
enforced on Canadian Immigrants in-
1o these countries as we would enforce on  those peoples.
"We realize that there are      many
important  aspects  to   this  question ,
but we,  who control the government.
1 ave  taken a firm stand,  and we de
tire that  negotiations shall  be carri-
id on consistent with this measure of
firmness.   If it is found that International treaty obligations are affected,
let t he  representatives of the affected

commissions, to carry on investiga -
' tions that are thorough und practic-

latest developments in science and in
l.ractical application.
"With  regard  to the activities    of
the  various  departments  of  govern ■
, ment, we  have passed  through  a per-
j iod of increased development and continued  prosperity.   The departments
today handle twice as much work as
they  did a few years ago,  and  if  occasional  complaints  are  made,   they
are only to be expected in the carrying on  of business  that  requires ex-
jtreme precision  and highly technical
knowledge.   The record of our public
' works for  the  last  year stands     out
(dearly as the     biggest     undertaking
which any     province has ever faced.

"During  my  trip to   London,      the
Attorney-General,  who acted as Premier during my absence,  was obliged
ty reason of differences in the industrial situation at Nanaimo, to   take
very  firm  measures  for  the  enforce -
ment oi law and order.   The govern -
ment of British Columbia, both     individually and collectively,  was much
| concerned     at baying     to resort to
j these extreme  measures, and     when
the moment arrives when law and or
der cannot be enforced, it  is time for
the  destruction  oi  this  government.
In referring to this emergency, I wish
to mukc it quite clear thut the gov--

Bows i  :;c     Wh it   he   did,    This   d.ers

The year which has closed bus been

this to no greater degree perhaps
than any other Province. It has been
a stringency, however, not due to adversity, but to prosperity, and perhaps for that very reason has beon
the harder to bear, since to tho av-
erage man it is iniexplainable.
"To us in British Columbia it has
b i a period ol re-adjustment,   and,
however painful the process, we cannot doubt that ii has been a healthy
one. The Province has borne the
test admirably, Emphatically there
is nothing wrong with British Columbia.
"The  gross eftocl   of this situation
lias     been tee  throw  greater burdens
upon the Department over which     I
preside with u prospect of an increase
I in its duties.    At   this critical period,
| it is eminently necessary that all expenditures, whether private, municip-
| al or gove rnmental, should be, not
necessarily curtailed or dimiuisned,
but given very careful survey before
being entered upon.

however, that London and Europe
look at matters through different

that in mind, it is eminently ueces -
