LOOKING BACKWARDS.
Sir Charles proceeded to uive some
interesting reminiscences of bis enrlv
oolilical eareecr when on Mav 22, IS'io,
he was fust returned from his native
town iii Nova Scotia He undertook the
reconstruction ot ihe local Conservative
iiaitv in face of the opposition of si v
oral brilliant and lending men who
afterwards became his political as well
as peisonnl friends, so no a he did nor
despair ol converting the most obdurate Liberal Glancing over ih�� pnst
record of the two great parties bo said
tin,i Canada's present splendid nnil
united con ition ����s dm to confedeia
tion, which was chiefly the work of
tlie Conservative party. George Brown
had joined hands with sir John .-\.
Alncilnnnld for this purpose, but tlie
later steps were t-iken in spite of the
Liberal party led by Alexander Mac-
ken/.ifl and Edward Blake, win, nlso
opposed 'he construe ion of tin: C f.
ll. tooth and nail. In so doing the Liberals did what they thought io ne
right, but events had proved them to
l>e wroiu;. Then, as ever, tbey lacked
filth in the future end resources ot
ilHiinda, and tlm wise prescience ot
irue statesmanship. Inter communion
tion between ine fro inees was huso
lately necessary- fur lhe developn ent
nnd well beiug of Canada. Sir Charles
then gave instances of Liberal hiue
ruin predictions, when it was decided
to build lhe.railroad.
ATTACKS THE LIBERALS.
'Um speaker then next entered on a
scathing neuuiu iation of the present
Uoveiniueut. which, he said, had not
kept one of its premises. The Liberals
hnd promised free trade, and denounced th-- Conservatives' tariff as highway
rubbery, but the Hon. George Foster
ban shown that their taiiff manioula-
tienis had resulted in a net renuetinn
71 100 of one per cent! He instanced
the failure to reduce tlie duty ou cot-
ten nncordius to nre-eleciion promises.
Before llie last general election the
Hou. David Mills promised the Liberals would reduce expenditure hy four
millions, but tlio estimated expendi-
inio for the forthcoming yenr exceeded
tbat of the last Conservative Govern-
i ent bv 14 millions.
Sir  Richard   Oartwright   said  that
lailrond   suns diztng   would he  put   n
siop to ns a   source  of   "jobbery, corruption   and    peciiia ion"     but  thev

HARD ON HIMSELF.
I', w )f   the  oandidate that ie
profuse oi promises. " Tbat is not bad
advice, although it does mine from
Mr. Houston's paper. Such men, it is
added, seldom carry out their pledges.
Mi, Houston is a candidate, and he
publishes nn election address that is
composed of promises. He promises
to so adjust the rates of public "utilities" thai thi v will yield a profit. He
promises to issue no debentures the
proceeds of which will not be expended in undertakings that will not produce a revenue. This is in connection
with his earnest desire to avoid "direct taxation," as if municipal institution-ever have been or ever could
be maintained without. He promises
to throw himself heartily into the
work of itreet improvements; to make
a beginniug, as he expresses it, al
though those who have followed the
proceedings of tho present Council and
kept un eye on tbe Oity Engineer
have heen under the impression that a
beginning was made some time ago.
He promises to put the Oity wharf in
good repair. Tho enrious thing abon
this it that the present Council have
already taken steps to have the wharf
enlarged mid improved in a manner
to satisfy all requirements.
Mr, Houston in the role of a moral
reformer is something new nnd quite
as surprising. Bnt th��se are election
times, and. ns we sea, he is a candidate. He promises to set his face
against 'saloon expansion," and to
frown down public gambling, .lust
here it is well to repeat the warning-
beware of the candidate who iR profuse
of promises. His next is a promise not
to pass any but general by-laws; he will
do the vest himself. He promises tn
make the companies who have obtained
public franchises toe the mark. There is
not the slightest indication so fat,
or the slightest reason to apprehend,
that they will not do so;t"it the promise is cheap and ornamental, aud���who
knows?���may prove serviceable. He
promises to make the fire department
more efficient, by impressing more volunteers and procuring the very best
equipment.
Here is certainly a profusion of
promises; whether Mr, Houston intends to carry them out we shall
probably never know, as tho electors
���will refuse him the opportunity.
But his paper declares that men who
are given to profusion of promises are
not ro he relied upon, and Mr.' lions,
ton's paper ought tn know Mr. Houston's mind. We do not know, however,
that it would be either safe or [air to
judge a candidate by his willingness
to make promises. Something of bis
general charaoter should be takeu into account. When there are two candidates for one position, the electors
should well consider the charaoter of
both, ninl determine in their own
minds, from such reputation as they
enjoy, whioh one would servo to best
advantage and refleoi most credit on
the publio judgment, The position of
Mayor requires that personal reputation
shall be .. governing Factor iu making
a choice.
in the West Wnrd at least Iho Alder-
manic situation is taking shape. We
understand that Mr. MoKillop will accept, a second term if requested to do
so. The request is a matter of course;
we uro sure that nothing would please
the vast majority of West Ward electors more than to obtain the services of
Mr. McKillop for another yoar. Dr.
Arthur has consented to offer hh a candidate. Here are two good men : now
for the third. Matters in tho Rust are
still in their formative state. The two
surviving Aldermen for tbat Wnrd
positively refuse renomination. This
is a pity. But there are good men to
select from, and the sooner theii
names aro before the people the better
it will be for all concerned.
Mr. Houston demands to know which
of the candidates for Mayor is the
more likely to stand out for the City's
interest. We should say, Mr. Houston.
Last .year, when Mayor, be was so
dee y interested in the City aud so
concerned for its welfare that he unload, tl on to it an electric light, plant
for what is claimed to have been three
or four times its value. If Aid. Fletcher has somo old thing be intouds to
palm off on the Oity at a good stiff price
he should atoncemnke it known,otherwise judgment will bave to go to Mr.
Houston.

Briefly stated, my platform is as follows :
If eleoted it will be my earnesl endeavor tti assist in more tirmly establishing NpIsou us tb�� wholesale distributing centre of the Kontenay Country
���tlie position for wiiioh she has been
su admirably cie-iyneil bv nature.
In furllieran e ol this idea, I will
continue niy consistent advonney ci the
construction of n wharf whioh will
meet present and future require] '-nt��
of the wholesale and other bus ine interests.
I believe that the City hns reached
that shine when permanent street improvements have become an uhsoluto
necessity aiiil that the cost shonld be
met, ns far as feasible, from current
revenue and should the Citizens see lit
to entrust me with the office of Mayor,
it will be my aim to carry ont a well
devised system of street Improvements,
It will be my policy   to   oppose   the
borrowing of inonev unless tVie same be i ^J,
usoil for the increase or establishment   -*5ii
of Puhlio  Works producing a  rivenu
to the Taxpayi rs.
I am opposed to any increase in the
salary of Mayor, which would necessarily involve a reduction in salaries
now paid an efficient staff of ollicials,
or an inoreased burden to the taxpayers.
I am strongly in favor of maintaining the Fire Department in a position
nf thorough cliioietioy aud would advise the adoption of modern equip
ments including a Fire Alarm rtystem
and the purchase of a chemical engine
which would effect a reduction iu all
Fire Insurance.
It will he mv consistent policy to
safeguard the taxpayers against any
attempts on the part of corporate bodies, carrying on business in Nelson, to
encroach upon the rights of the (.'iti
���/ens.
In my opinion a sufficient amount
of money should he expended upon ihe
Parks of the ('ity so that they will provide the Citizens with recreation
grounds and opportunities for healthful
enjoyment.
On all municipal works mv policy
will be to employ bona-ii'ie rcsideins of
