There was also a neat display uf national flags un the stage and gallery.
Tho arrangements at tho hall were in

whom they reflected  tho highest credit.
A largo number uf ladies attended ,

Lindmark, Independent candidate; G.
H. Kempster, Socialist candidate; W .

of (Jolden.
Mr. J. M. Kellie was chairman of
the meeting aud invited Hon. Thomas
Taylor to the platform, but there was
no response.
On the cur;ain being raised the
speakers were greeted with enthusiastic cheering.
Tho chairman said they had with
them thai uight two distinguished
gentlemen who would address them on
the railway policy. Ho called on Mr.
Lindmark, the Independent candidate,
to open  the  meeting.
Whu was receivod with oheers, said
that as they hud with them two such
able speakers that night he would
not tuke up their time with any speech
making. Neither had he much qualification for that, There were other
qualifications which wero as important
us being able to talk. Ho had been iu
this place for twenty-.lwo years, and
they knew him. Tho one sincere du-
siro of hia lit'o was to help tho city ho
hud adopted as his homo those twenty-two years, and which he had never
left since coming hero. If they elected
him to represent them, ho cuuld give
them the assurance ihey would not be
disappointed. (Cheers), ilo would
work sincerely, uud endeavor to keep
Hevelstoke in tho front. Sometimes
ho thought thut iu the pust Hovel -

Since he hud the liouor uf being ut

hud bucked tho C. 1*. IL pretty stitlly,
the Qrat thing ho did wus to bury
i heir grievance in the interest of the
City. He walked up to ihu C. 1*. K.,
and told them he was willing to wurk
with them iu uuy way he could iu the
mutual interest of the city and the
company. And lie could say it lo lho
credit of the local officials, as well us
those higher up, lhat since lhat time
they had done everything thoy could,
tu work in harmony with the City
Council. The result was they had arrived at a good understanding, and
ihey had the promise <»f Mr. llury ,
that the shops would be aguin filled
up to their former capacity, aud the
company would use their electric power and light. (Cheers). Not only had

We wuuld imi bo prepared to subscribe lo the principle, rcilcriilcd by
Sir Charles us pari of his political
philosophy, of uudoviuting adherence
to party leadership. No man is infallible, and there arc reasons which
might bo cited aguinsi ihis. Sir Char-
le- however declared tnat he siill

excuse for deserting Mr. McBrido at
Victotia wus    found    in a declaration

blinds lu encourage railwux construction, as promulgated by lhe Conservative leader iii ihis province was. he
declared, inconsistent wiih u state-

Statistics bave beeu given, but here
are Borne more:—
W. P. Archibald, Dominion Parole
ollieer, aays: "Seventy-live per cent,
of the prisoners of ail classes have
been led aatray through atroug drink."
During prohibition in Prince Edward island the number of convictions
for drunkeniie;>a decreased over 40 per
cent, in 1005 over the previous year,
while in every province where liquor
is Bold there waa an increase ranging
from 3 to 10 per cent. Reports from
the minister of justice of 190(5 shows
that 80 per cent, of Canadian prisoners
use intoxicants; only 14 per cent, of
the convicts are total abatainera.
In the year before tlie advent of
temperance legislation in P. E. Island
convictions for drunkennees in Cbar-
lottetown numbered 720. In 1007
there were 111.
In Quebec there are 700 parishes
without license, over two-thirds of the
province. The newly formed anti-
saloon league in Quebec bas a membership of 100,000 and it ia cbielly

This movement has been discredited
by tbe liquor men who claim that it
will be aa tbe temperance movement
50 years ago, only for a very short
period. Thai movement of 50 years
ago did nut wholly subside. Its great
leaders died, !,ut it haa been steadily
growing up to its present proportions,
and now tbe movement ia world-wide.
Every country in the world that ii
advancing in civilization and influence is turning her attention to the
suppression of the liquor traffic. Upwards of 3,000 newspapers in the
United States and Canada refuse
liquur advertisements, and the list
includes such influential magazines as
McClure's, Everybudy's, Century,
Ladies1 Home Journal, Collier'B and
Saturday Evening Post, witb others,
refusing to support the liquor traffic
aud the saloon.
With its array ol inlluence on its
side and with tbe churches of the
world aaits sworn ally the temporance
movement can scarcely be called
transient. In addition we could name
luu.dredt of leading men in political
and businees circles csndemning the

'The Voters Lists.
The tirsl   thunder chip lhat    reached
tho public ear wus in  January    last,
j when it was discovered iu the bye-elec-
I tion caused by Hon Tom Taylor being
appointed      minister   of  public,   works
I that tho     Voters Lists hud been turn-
pored    witli, und  that   Ihe names      uf
well-known   residents  opposed   to     Mr.
Taylor     hud    been struck oIT tlie roll
without  their receiving nny nolice    of
objection.    F.nquiry  showed   these nam-
jes were     struck off on the motion     of
j Mr.   Fosier,      who, however,  did     not
; wish his nuuio to appear in  the matter,    An    investigation wus demanded.
| It came up in the legislature.        The
| Attorney-General  promised  un  investigation, but  frum  thut duy      lu     this
that    promise has  uut  been kept. 'The
reason is not fnr to seek.    Mr.  Foster
took that  action in the interesl of the
mun  who  is   now   his   nominee,     Hon.
.Mr.  'Taylor.   They km-w  what  an    investigation meant  to  them.   'Thei-   did
not want it.   A press gallery report nf
the proceedings uf the legislature    nt
the time suid:—
"If the government cures to push

unolher member uf lhe furce said: "If

own otlice upstairs, bul he hud a
swelled head which was daily getting

getting smaller.
1 was u little curious to lind mil
what Mr. Foster was up to next. If
you will visit the oflicc of the Chief of
Police you will find a slide opening
into the barred hall behind. I opened
that a little and heard Mr. Foster say
things of which 1 have a shorthand record. Woll lhi- worthy magistrate
was discussing ihe possibility of my
questioning his jurisdiction and, us
his swelled heud goi biggor, he -aid
he was a justice of lhe ponce for lhe
whole province would gel Constable
Kington to take me oui lo Three Yul-
Iry by the early train in the morning
und try me there nnd send mc on to
Kamloops gaol. And this from the
man who only a few brief months ago
bad sworn to do justice to all without
fear or favor. But this wns probably
his idea of justice and.of the value of
his oath on affidavit, lie did not
know any better, aud "where ignor -
iinee is bliss, 'lis folly to be wise."

Sole AgenU in Revelstoke. THE MATL-HEBALD, REVELSTOKE, 13. C.
Provincial Elections 1909
To the Electors of Revelstoke
GENTLEMENi—l have tlie honor to announce my oandldature
lor the representation of Kevelstoke diding in the election to lie held
on   November  25th, and  ropiest  the  favor iit  your support in this
contest.    The following is my platform —
Completion of tlm Canadian I'acilic Railway Company's Arrowhead A Kootenay line to open up tlie ricli mineral resources of tbo
Lardeau and Fish Creek, and make tlie iruit anil farm liiinlsof
Beaton, Galena Bay, Comaplix, and Oamborne available to tho best
markets, besides plaoing Arrowhead on a main transcontinental Hue
,,f railway and making it tlie principal shipping port mul manufacturing centre on the Arrow Lukes, Hie construction ol this railway
will establish through connection betwoen the main and Crow's Nest
lineB of the C. P, K. system. This will result in Revelstoke becoming
the m«in junction uud railway centre ol Interior liritish Oolumbia,
and pave the way for making this city the Spokane of this lair Province. Any financial assistance that may he necessary from the
Province to ensure the immediate construction ot this road should be
willingly rendered.
The construction of a railway up tiie Columbia ami Canoe Kiver
valleys to open up Revelstoke's richest heritage to the north should
bejiushed ahead. When in Revelstoke recently Hon. Frank Oliver,
Minister ol the Interior, mado public the assurance that the
Dominion (iovernment would give the assistance necessary  to becure
the construction of a railway to open up this OOUntly, and if auy
(urther assistance should be nquired to secure its early construction
it should be given liy the Province.
Tbe Government's railway policy, proposing to tie up the credit
of the Province to the extent of $45,000,000 in principal and interest
for a railway that must be built in any case to complete the Canadian
Northern Transcontinental system, and which opens up only
two hundred milco ot new territory in the North Thompson Valley,
is one which should be opposed by every well wisher of Revelstoke.
Such u policy, if curried out, would be a serious thing, for not
only would it destroy the credit ol the Province for au extensive development and railway construction policy for which this Province
will be required iu tbe near future to provide, but so far hb Kevelstoke
is concerned it would cut this city off both north and south from the
business properly belonging to it. The northern business would be
diverted down the North Thompson Valley to the Coast, while tbe
southern trallic which now forms such a large volume of tbe trans-
|mrtation business coining through Kevelstoke would be diverted by
way uf the Ukanagan and Nicola Valleys, thus largely reducing the
railway labor employed here. A more suicidal policy, so far ns Kevelstoke ie concerned, was never placed before tlie people of this city
aud district, and 1 call on every man interested in tbe Revelstoke
Riding to rally round me, and stop once and for all the attempt so
deliberately put up to injure this section of the Province, which BO
many ol us bave Bpent the best years ot our life in endeavoring to develop and build up,
Considering the immense nvciiun contributed by the Kevelstoke
Killing in the shape of Timber Licenses, the Revelstoko Killing bus
not had a square deal, and it is time it got one. Tho Hiding should
' be opened up by a thorough system of ro.uls and [rails constructed in
a iiermaneiit manner and under competent supervision. The lirst
workt that should be undertaken in ihis direction are:—
Construction ol a wagon road between Kevelstoke ami Arrow head.
Construction aud operation oi a tramway past ileal b Kapids.
Construction ol such portions ol road us ar- required to give tbe
l«est possible transportation t,, Hig Bend and points between Kevelstoke and Tete .Inline Cache, so that Kevelstoke, as the nearest Inisi-
nees centre thereto, shall share in tbe benefits resulting from the
large expenditure in the construction ol the Urand Trunk I'acilic aud
Canadian Northern railways went ,,! Yellowhead Pass.
Construction of the balance of tbe mail from Kevelstoke tlir,,ugh
the F.agle Pass to give the settlers ot Malakwa and ot lit i poiuts the
access they desire to thiB city.
v new Court House. Provincial Gaol, and   Land   Itegistry  Ullice
ihould be provided at Kevelstoke without delay,
Perpetual Licenses should be given to present holders ol Timbei
■o that they shall have as good a title to timber as to other forme il
property, or a title which will be available as financial security ivheu
required. Land held under timber license suitable lor settlement
tbould lie made available for such .is boon as the timber is removed.
The Property Tax now levied in the cities should belong to tbe
municipalities which require tbis revenue to enable them tu carry
on sn elective system ol education by the addition to the sell,,,,I
system of Manual Training and Technical Branches
In view of the fact that the Province bas over 14,000,000 in tb
Banks ou fixed deposit at three per cent, interest, it is evident the
people are mure heavily taxed Ihan necessary. Taxation should
therefore I..- reduced, cure being taken that ihe remaining taxation
is placed on the shoulders ol those best able to bear it. \- soon si
tbe Provincial tinauoee will admit of it the Poll Tax ihould be
In connection with the Good Roads Policy an etTeotive system
ol surveys and land settlement shuuld In: adopted.
I am in favor of the square deal for everybody and consider that
the Civil Service should lie absolutely free frum political Interference,
promotion being by merit only us recognised through the British
Civil Service,
In public expenditures all should have equal consideration without regard to their political opinions or party alliances. I stand fur
the clean administration ol justice without fear or favor.
In conclusion I wish to say that in my opinion tlie time hss
eome for Revelstoke to demand Aggressive Representation, and light
ior ht-f rights in the forefront of the progress and development of tha
