The big convention to be held in Vancouver on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22
and 23, promises to be an epoch-making
event in the history of Conservatism in
British Columbia.
The committee having the matter in
hand are sparing no effort to make it a
success, and the railways have offered
every encouragement in the way of reduced rates to delegates coming from
the various constituencies throughout
the province.
The purpose of the convention is
mainly to create a provincial organiza- j
tion and thus place the outlying dis-1   C. J. Curtin of

It is almost a certainty that Premier

On Monday morning at a quarter past seven, smoke was seen issuing from one of the windows of
the Hilliard House. The alarm
was at once given, but it w.is found
that tbi lire had obtained too strong

Turner occupied a room in the
back part of the building, and this
room  was  the  one  next to that
in  which  the  fire seems to have

fire, he at once made for the door,

rushed into the room, and he was
badly   burnt   about   the face and
