Tupper Tory Tactics.
'i'he great Conservative conven-j
tion which met in this city last Friday evening  and   nominated   .Mr.
Andrew Haslam as its candidate is j
now a thing of the past.   In many
respects  the convention in its com-j
position nnd modus operandi was
unique, and may properly termed
an   epoch-marking   precedent   in
political tactics.    That the nominating convention of a great party!
should be held behind closed doors, j
its   deliberations   practically suppressed, and the names of tne delegates guarded with Masonic secrecy,
is so astounding that we in our innocence never heard of such a thing.
The only information given to the
public of the proceedings of this
"peculiar" convention we find in,
possibly, the most "peculiar" report ever published in a "peculiar"
newspaper. The local organ of the
party, although in full knowledge
of the proceedings and names of (lie
delegates, compromised with its
conscience ami furnished its read-
era with the following "peculiarly"
lucid information:
There were

1111 is being matured
to have Mr. Haslam and Mr. Haggart both retire from the field and
bring in Col. Prior as a compromise candidate. The gallant colonel, be it remembered, holds the
anomalous position of a full-fledged,
full-grown cabinet minister without
a seat in the cabinet. The valiant
colonel doubtless sees the handwriting on the wall in Victoria,and
in desperation would attempt the
wild, tpboganish feat of sliding
through this district to a seat in
the Commons, if not in the cabinet.
We would offer a word of warning
lo llu: warrior colonel against the
experiment, We believe it would
prove ip finitely more disastrous
lban the boyish sport of sliding
down the cellar door, and will venture to predict that, if lhe redoubtable colonel attempts such a coasting trip to Ottawa, be will lie compelled to halt at Violoria in confusion and disgrace, minus the seat
of—his cabinet position. Ifotirco-
ercionisl neighbors intend to get up
another,convention to unravel the
many kinks in their tangled skein,
we hope they will use belter judgment than they did with (heir late
abortion, which had not lhe merit
of even a modicum of shrewdness. It was awkwardly conceived,
clumsily matured, ushered on the
world a howling absurdity, and
awaits baptism as a screaming

concluding enumeration, "and several   other points," is deliciously

placed in nomination. It was well
known lo the members of this so-
called convention that they were
repudiated by Mr. Haggart and his
friends on the justifiable ground
that they were noi representative,
and Mr. Haggart had no particular
desire to come to Nanaimo to lie
knifed in the back by his coercion-
. ist colleagues. Therefore, to bring
his name before the convention, was
the shallowest kind of hollow mockery. Hut ihe climax of absurdity
is reached when they publicly proclaim that two votes were cast in
his favor. It seems nothing short
of heaping insult on injur)' would
satisfy the mysterious delegates in
their wrath against .Mr. Haggart for
of Canada," if the result of Conservative Government has been
successful, what in Heaven's name
would lie unsuccessful? Since the
Conservative Government came
into power our national debt has
increased from $140,868,061) in
1878, to $253,074,927 iu 18U5.
Our annual expenditure has risen
from 23,503,158 in 1878 to $38,132,-
000 in 1896, Our tariff has been
increased from an average of 17
per cent, (tariff for revenue) to an
average of over ,'{■! per cent, (tariff
for manufacturers). .According to
the Government's own llltie Hoots,
"under the National Policy banner," we lost from 1881 to 1891

relations between the people of
Wellington and Nanaimo. As lo
whether they are deserving of reproach or not we don't purpose to
discuss at this time, hut we have no
hesitation in saying that the present political manipulations of the
Nanaimo Conservatives will have a
tendency to create an irritation in
the minds of our Wellington neighbors that will take years to allay.
The chaotic demoralization of t lie
Conservative party in this district
should furnish corresponding pleasurable sensations to the Liberals.
While we frankly admit that we are
an immeasurable distance from the
tear-shedding point, yet we don't
feci an overflowing exuberance of
exultation. Unlike our local contemporary, we don't feel "exquisite
plea ure" at our opponents' misfortunes. We merely, feel a sense of
additional security. We would have
preferred to measure swords on
equal conditions, as we had no fear
of the result  and   it would perma-

"manifest success of the National
Policy," perhaps.
No wonder the books in which
the Government furnish these details are termed "Blue" Hooks. A
perusal of them will make anyone
really interested in the growth of
this Canada of ours blue indeed.
