(SPECIALS TO Till'! MIS Ml.)
Toronto. Aug. 81.-The annual
meeting of the Canadian Manufacturing Association opened here yesterday
morning, Geo, ll. Hess presented a
report from the tariff, committee of
some Importance. The committee
referred to a resolution whieh had
been passed on thc subject of tariff by
the executive committee of the Association based on replies received to
communications sent to members on
the subject This had declared thai
the Association did not object to a
reasonable preference on liritish goods
hul had objected to the latest In*
crease in preference as Injurious to
Canadian manufacturers In certain
lines, also urging that preference
Should only be allowed on goods In
which there is at least fifty per cent
of Hritish labor.
In presenting these recommendations two delegations waited upon tlie
Government together .at. lb* ..un-
mlttee to urge their elnini in their
respective industries. The committee,
however, regretted to report that although promises were received from
members of the Government of careful
attention to this matter, nothing has
been done, although in many lines
the redress asked for could have lieen
got by lowering duties, without injuring any other Canadian Industry,
Nothing, however, has lieen ilone by
the Government, The policy evidently is that they will wateli the effect
uf the tariff for at least a year without making any change, unless It is
found an actual fact that some industries are being injured.
W, K. MeNaught Htated that it hail
been urged upon the (iovernment that
Canadian manufacture!- not only
wanted adequate protection against
every country hut even against the
Motherland, While anxious to have
the trade with thc liritish increased,
the delegation to Ottawa did not
tlllnli It should lie done at the expense
of Ihe Canadian manufacturers hut
at those of the I'nited States.
Sam (olson. of Montreal, represent-
lug an Important iron manufactory,
said that so far as protection was concerned he was well satitied with the
tariff aB a rule. Montreal manufacturers, if they had any grievance,
would have heen at the convention in
numbers, Under the late tariff man*
fuctnrcrs of barbed wire had no
chance to compete witb the I'nited
states. They accordingly turned
their attention to other lines which
proved more profitable. Mis house
had been in business for 10 years and
Uevcr had the tariff Worked so smoothly as at present. Some industries he
thought,were protected out of proportion and he would like to see tills rectified. The. report was adopted unanimously, after further discussion.
A resolution was moved by W.J.Mc*
Murtey, seconded by M. Coulson, cnll-
inK" upon thc Dominion Qovernment
to pass an insolvency act at tlle next
session of Parliament, which will
Provide for the speedy and equitable
distribution of estates of insolvent
Persons,   This wu also carried.
���'��� M. Taylor brought up n report
'"'in the railway and transportation
cotnmlttee. The question of shipping
��t owner's risk bad been taken up by
thai the committee may fight out this
mutter to a successful isue they must
bo backed strongly by every manufacturer and shipper iu the country.
During the discussion I'. W, Ellis
criticised very sharply thi' excessive
rates of tbe ('. I'. K. across the Continent, Merchants in Vuncouver and
Viotoria often found it. more profitable to buy In the United States uud
pay duty, instead of purchasing from
manufacturers in eastern Canada and
paying high freight rates. The railway companies, he said, were becoming the absolute musters of the Dominion, Thoy were becoming the
rulers of the country instead of the
(iovernnment. and as a consequence
manufacturers and consumers were not
getting their rights The report was
adopted.
9, C. VVolfcnder wub elected president for liritish Columbia, Various
resolutions were carried,among others
one approving of the policy of preferential tariff as advocated hy Sir
Charles Tupper.

WHY  SHOULD WE?
near approach of ihe Federal
elections is upsetting the mind of that
very fervent Liberal organ. The Viotorin Tiines. It says: "We have
been told quite frequently of late
thai British Columbia will not return
a single member to the new House."
We can scarcely credit the statement,
There is no warrant for It, for the
Province has not lieen disfranchised,
and it   is  nol   conceivable  that  any
person could have such n reckless disregard of the truth as to go to The
Times with a story of that kind. It
may lie an ensy matter lo impose upon
,,ur contemporary, but no one surely
conld be so heartless as to do ii In
ili,~. cold blooded fashion. We hnve no
doubt the constltuenics of Hritish
Columbia will be invited to dec
representatives in the usual way when
the time comes. It is quite within tbe
bounds of probability lhat this Province will nol return a single supporter
of the Government. Perhaps that is
what The Times was trying to say.
This is regarded as so very probable
that Bcveral persons have been known
to hazard it as a prediction.
And as we consider the matter, it
must he acknowledged that there is
good ground on   which   U)  base   such
Russia may have plans, and France
may he ready to fall in with them I
but we shall find in the end thnt
Great Britain, Germany, and Japan
will   hnve   quite us potent n voice   In
the settlement of this great Far Eastern  question.   Germany  bus a little
score of her own to settle, but uside
from that there is nothing in Ihe situation to estrange her from Great
Britain and Japan, and there will be
im arrangement of Chinese affairs to
which these three Powers have any
grave reason to object.
Is the frequency of those ring tights
in the I'nited States evidence that
the people over the line are becoming
more hrutalised than the average
human nature of the day? Prize lighting iii the older civilised countries is
dying out tin most of them it is as dead

bla    profited   by helping  to  put   Sir
Wilfrid Laurier  Into  power'.'   Hefore
the   Liberals  camo   in this   Province
wus  given    a  representative  In  the
Cabinet: there has heen no representative since.   Thut is u matter of direct
local interest, and in respect to which
WC   huve   been   losers.    The    Premier
promised to  be governed by the opinions of the Hritish Columbia members
in regard to thc  question  of Oriental
immigration;    these    opinions,    although    frequently expressed   and in
terms that did nol  admll   ot  misconception, hnve   been systematically Ignored.       This     Province   contributes
more per   hend   of   population   to tlle
public revenue, nnd receives in public
expenditure less than any "f the   "tilers.   There   would be no complaint to
moke mi this ground   if tho   Province
were   well   equipped for thc  race   in
industrial  and   commercial development.    But it is not.    It is   new. and
is known   to be fabulously rich,  yet
when we   ns'.<   our Liberal musters at
Ottawa tn give us a hand In some  necessary public enterprise for thc more
speedy   nnd   certain   development     of
our resources, they  turn   their   backs
upon ns.   It wus the policy of Conservative Governments  '"   do  everything
possible t" aid   thc young and struggling  members  ot   thc  Confederacy,
but the present Liberal one has   acted
all along us if liritish Columbia should
do her own struggling or starve.
if wo   gp outside tho   Province and
take a survey of the Dominion  genet
ally, we ure   at onee reminded of  the
fact thai every pledge and promise on
which   the "Liberals rode   Into  power
have been broken.   They were to reduce
the public expenditure by three or
lour minimis, they hnve actually Increased it by ten or twelve. They
were to modify the tariff and relieve
the taxpayer of the burden of protection: the tariff today is ns protection
1st or ever. They were to purge ou
public   life   of   Its Immorality;   they
huve been guilty of Ihe    grossest    OOtl
of electoral   corruption    known    In
our history. And when our Mother
Country got into trouble in South
Africa and the Canadian people desired to ��o i" her aid,they were discouraged by our French-Canadian Premier
at the Instance of u French-Canadian
colleague who openly boasts of hi
syniputhy nnd affection for Britain's
bitterest enemy,Franco, Why.indeed.
should this Province return a supporter nf thc Laurier Government? What
h:ts the Lnurlcr Government done for
it. or for  the  Dominion,  or  for  the
credit of our loyalty t'�� the Kinpire,
that it Should he expected to help
keep these null  ill power'.'

The production of "Caste" hy the
Australian Comedy Company at the
Opera House last, night did not go
Unite as smoothly as did "Sapho" on
.he preceding night owing to a lack of
.eliearsals. Mr. Cochrane us D'Alroy
had the part of an Impetuous lover
who threw to the winds the traditions
of caste as preached to him by his
friend Captain Qawtree, a role that
was most excellently taken by Mr.
Townshend. Mr, Percy Ward made a
hit with the low comedy part of Eo-
cles. the labor agitator who never
Worked, liis scene in the third aet being especially well done. Miss Elliot
most acceptably filled tho thankless
role of the Marquise do 8'Maur,
which, however, gave her the opportunity to display several very handsome costumes, the one worn in the
third act being especially effective.
The balance of the support was excellent. Tonight the company will put on
"His Night Out" and tomrrow night
by special request will repeat -Sa-
pho."
