W. Welsh, who was sent here by
the British Columbia Government
in connection with the taking ol
the soldier vote In the provincial
election, has received a letter
from Mr. Rives Hall. K.C., representative of the Liberal party of
British Columbia, which explains
itself: ''Referring to our conversation, regret to learn that my cable to Mr. Wade was exaggerated
in 'The Sun.' I made no charge ot
dishonesty whatever, and am very
sorry if the exaggerated report
has been in any way detrimental
to you. I had no such intention
in sending the message—did not
suspect, nor make any charge of
dishonesty." When particulars
werc received here of the sensational charges made by "The
Sun" in Vancouver against Mr.
Welsh, Mr. A. Rives Hall was
communicated with. Mr. Welsh
protested against such charges
lieing made, and Mr. Hall repudiated having made any such
charges in a letter to Mr. Welsh,
from which the above is quoted.

may appear to the Kevelstoke Review

Welsh, Sir Kichard Mcliride   or     any

The Liberal speakers say that Foley, Welch & Stewart have put rone
of their own money into the Pacific
Oreat. Eastern, thnt the only money
put into the concern is the $1'8,•000,000
the company raised on guaraneced
bonds. The fact is that the firm has
invested $9,000,000' of its own money
In the concern.
The "Gazette" of Grand Forks does
not seem to be much impressed    with
Mr. Brewster's leadership.  It says:
"Mr,. Brewster bas been tried and
found want inr.      His     actions have
shown that he had neither the fore-
sight, nor tbe capacity nor the public spirit necessary for the responsibilities of government,     He   cannot
even     lead     an opposition without
committing  blunder after      blunder.

--endered the mills to a certain extent idle. To remedy this, aid has
teen given to shipbuilding and in a
short tin.e we will have a substantial fleet for the province which wlll

"Dr. Sutherland states that tho
vrater power is an enormous aBset to
the Province, to which attention
should be paid. Ttiis fact has been
realized quite fully by the goveru-
'inent and on every hand we bave evidence of the attention that bas been
■given to this great asset. It has been
well protected. Tlie Govesnment has
•bad  and  is having surveys     made of
the   creeks, rivers and water powers.
"Dr. Sutherland has referred to the
taxes on land. I think it must be admitted that certain taxes be imposed
but there are always a certain number of people who do uot like being
taxed. You will remember in the election of 1903 the big issue was the abolition of the poll tax. I was in favor of increasing the poll tax and it
is the only time I was ever near being defeated. Dr. Sutherland voted
for me at that time. Now I find he is
against the poll-tax. He says Chinamen should be made to pay poll-tax.
It is not within Provincial jurisdiction to legislate that any citizens of
another country shall be specially
taxed and others exempted. Such leg-
inlation would be disallowed as ultra
vires of the Province.
"Dr. Sutherland also complained
about the aid given to prospectors
nnd criticises the mining act. I am
glad he mentioned this as the mining
laws of the Province ol British Columbia are the equal of if not better
than any  in  America.  The prospector
is entitled   to the greatest considera-i'those will promptly take steps in co-
