SEMLIN THH MAN!
At Ashcroft on Saturday last, C.
A. Semlin 'vns unanimously chosen
as the Conservative candidate for
Yale b i delegates from all parts of
the district, at one of the liest attended and most enthusiastic conventions ever held in British Columbia.
Mr. Semlin has represented Yale
district before and his record in
that capacity merits the confidence
of thr elector! in the present campaign. 1' is '.t itrich personal sacrifice tin' bt- lytiti consents to seek
the suffrages of the electorate in the
coming election, and Yale district
is to be congratulated on being able
to obtain the services of so capable
and worthy a candidate.
An enthusiastic pporter of the
Mcllridc administration, he appeals
to the electors of Yale district to
support him in a fight against British Columbia being aunded over to
the federal government as a field
for exploitation by party favorites,
and it is hoped that all those in favor of clean politics, irrespective of
pirty, will support Mr. Semlin on
polling clav.
A SIGN OF WEAKNESS.
In an able article on the political
campaign the Kent- Advertiser says:
It l�� somewhat of a MtrpriK���we
had almost said disappointment���to
observe the pensive attitude with
which the Trovincial Opposition received tl.: .lews of the dissolution
of the Legislature. From the articles that iia> ���". appeared in the Opposition press during many months,
one would have supposed the party
was eagei for the opportunity of
again testing its strength against
the Government forces. Now no
sikh disposition is apparent. An air
of resignation has succeeded to the
former oi.e of bravado; and a sullen
acquiescence in what is acknowledged to be inevitable has followed the cheery anticipations formed
<rheu the elections were yet in a
misty and uncertain f...ure. Ik-fore
the fight is on the Dutch courage
has evaporated and the surveys
made of the Government's position
have no* given much hope that it
can b-> taken hy any force at the
Opposite nrl disposal.
But the i ,o3t remarkable pi oof of
the recognitioi by the Opposition
itself of its weakness and of its lack
of effective leadership, is the extraordinary announce : -nt niudf by
the Opposition newspapers in Vancouver and Victoria, that W.W. B.
Mclnnes, the Governor of the Yukon Territory, who is now in the
East, has been implored to resign
his gubernatorial office aud become
the Joshua to the afflicted Liberal
tribes. It is ;;ta'ed *hat he has accepted the app- I ard will be a candidate for somei_ ' M-1 uency. As ���
detail in the campaign the incident
has only a personal interest. Mr.
Mclnnes will not affect the general
course of the campaign any more
than he did when hi ,vas a candidate in those of IfOO r.d 1903. If
he runs for what is regarded as a
Liberal constituency be will probably be elected; if for one of the Con
servative predilections he will meet
defeat. But the interest to Conservatives in this extraordinary incident
is in the evidence it affords of the
weakness of the Opposition leadership. The suggestion that Mr. Mclnnes must always stand behind Mr.
Macdonald, as only his lieutenant,
is too flimsy to deceive anyone.
When all is said and done the appeal to Mr. Mclnnes is the most
significant realization of Opposition
weakness that could lie given. As
the news of it spreads through the
country it will bring hundreds to
the Government camp. The white-
feather is shown In-fore the fight lie
gins.        	
INDEPENDENCE IN RULE.
The great overshadowing question in the coining election���the
one which should dominate all others���is whether we are to have a
Government in this province in
sympathy with the Government at
Ottawa, or one which will concern
itself entirely with the interests of
British Columbia. It can quite
readily be seen that if we place an
administration in power which will
be satisfied to be dictated to and
controlled bv tbe federal authorities
we will simply be handing ourselves
over, bound hand and foot, to a
power which has for ten years shown
itself determined to make the country serve the- interests of g party.
Under the best of conditions it is
dangerous in the extreme fora pn -
vincial government to be of the same
political stripe as the federal administration. Sir Oliver Mowatt
regarded this as one of the wisest
f his political maxims, and it was
through his fight of twenty years
with the Ottawa Government that
he secured the rights of Ontario.
We- can readily see- how our interests would be jeopardized, would be
betrayed, if we- elected to office-
Government whose- members weri
politically allied with those- in [lower at the Dominion capital. What
would have been the result had a
Liberal Premier gone to Ottawa to
attend the Better Terms Conference?
Instead of Premier McBride's decided and patriotic stand, our representative would have accepted exactly what he was told to. This
question has yet to be determined
and so have many others. Shall
we say, by the Government we elect, that they shall all be decided
at Ottawa, not at Victoria? This is
what the election of Mr. Macdonald
and his party to power will mean.
And shall British Columbia be turned over to the Dominion Government as a field for exploitation by
party favorites? We talk of graft
in the province today, as a result of
'ederal corruption. With a Government at Victoria acceptable to
that at Ottawa, there is danger that
we might have to resort to rafts,
and push off into the Pacific Ocean
as the only }ossession left to us.���
