THE NICOLA HE
Vol. 3, No. 48.
NICOLA, B. C��� FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 29, 1907.
a Year.
LARGE GATHERING
FOUR HUNDRED DELEGATES
ATTEND CONVENTION
Most  Successsul Political  Convention
Ever Held ln B.C.-Convent'on Ntxt
Year Will Hold Meeting
at Kamloops.
Representative, from practically
every district in the province were
present at the opening of the Provincial
Conservative Convention last Friday in
Vancouver. C. M. Woodworih, president of the Vancouver Conservative
Association, welcomed the delegates,
and in a neat speech Impressed on them
the necessity for better organization.
Premier McBride, who was received
with loud and prolonged cheering, also
spoke on the matter of organization,
and thought that certain resolutions
showing the policy of the party in B. C.
should be adopted. Some years ago a
a previous convention had laid down a
platform, and the present administration had done everything possible to
follow along the linos laid down at that
time. Though it was impossible at all
times to make drastic changes and
radical reforms, they had tried to give
the people of British Columbia sound
and economical administration, and anyone who had studied the province for
the past four and a half years must
admit that conditions had been very
much improved.
The Convention then proceeded to
appoint committees, and the remainder
of the morning session was devoted to
preliminary busines--, presentation of
credentials, etc. Altogether there
would be nearly 400 delegates present,
including members of the local government and legislature.
At the afternoon session several very
important resolutions were brought
before the meeting and carried with
enthusiasm. The following are the
resolutions:-
1. The members of this Convention
desire to place themselves on record as
emphatically endorsing the course of the
Government of British Columbia in connection with the advocacy of Better
Terms for this Province. To this course
they believe is wholly attributable the
reeognition-though inadequate���of the
the claims of British Columbia for
special treatment on the part of the
Dominion Government, already received,
and also that the action of Hon. R.
McBride, Premier, in carrying an appeal
to the Imperial authorities was effective
in preventing a linal and unalterable
settlement of the financial relations between the Province and tho Dominion
of Canada as proposed by the Government at Ottawa.
They desire, therefore, on this important question to congratulate the
Government upon the conspicuous success of its efforts throughout, und particularly to the lion. Richard McBride,
Premier, on the fruits of his mission to
England.
They hereby pledge themselves to
strongh, support the continuation of
the struggle for better terms until
brought to a successful issue, and
the rights of the Province fully secured.
2. The members of the Convention
believe that Canada should be preserved
as a white man's country and approve
of the course pursued by the Local Government with respect to Asiatic Immigration, and at the same time condemn
the attitude of the Dominion Government and especially that of our British
Columbia members at Ottawa in this
connection.
3. That this meeting approves of the
action of the Local Government in
asserting its rights with respect to the
control of the local fisheries of the Province,  and condemns   tbe   Dominion
Government for its lack of policy and
inactivity in dealing with this most important industry.
4. The Convention declares in favor
of a quinquennial census taking in B. C.
in order to place this Province upon the
same basis as the Northwestern Provinces and thereby reap the advantages
and development common to the whole
West.
5. This convention strongly condemns
the practice which has been in vogue
since lSlJTi, of delaying the Dominion
elections in certain constituencies until
after the results in the general elections
are known, for the purpose of unfairly
Influencing the electors in favor of the
party in power.
(j. Whereas under the terms of the
convention between the Governments
of British Columbia and Dominion of
Canada the former conveyed to the
Dominion large tracts of the best lands
of the Province for the exclusive use
and benefit of the Indians alone, with
the express understanding that such
lands should correspond to the actual
needs of the Indians, and that the
areas should be reduced as the tribes
diminished;
And whereas in many cases there has
been a material diminution of the
Indians on such reserves ;
And whereas certain of these reserves
are within the confines of the larger
cities of the Province to the detriment
of the community;
And whereas these reserves are being
used by the Liberal Government at
Ottawa in the interests of political
favorites and not as originally intended;
Be it therefore resolved that it is
highly desirable that steps be immediately taken towards the readjustment
of the areas of such reserves, so as to
make the unused lands available for
settlement.
7. This Convention expresses its confidence in R. L. Borden, K. C, as its
leader, and conveys to him its appreciation of his efforts to organize and
strengthen the Party in Western
Canada, its approval of and confidence
in the Platform of the Party so lucidly
expounded by him at the recent public
meetings throughout Canada, and keenly
appreciates his promise, when returned
as Premier of Canada, to grant to the
i'rovince of British Columbia a fair
hearing of its demands for an equitable
readjustment as to its subsidy from the
Dominion Treasury, which has been |
refused and contested by his political
opponents.
li. That this Convention heartily approves of the policy of the Honorable
R. McBride and his Government, which
has resulted in the sound and successful
state of affairs which exist in the Province to-day.
9. That this Convention desires to
congratulate Sir Charles Tupper, Hart.,
as one of the Fathers of Confederation,
upon the well-merited honor conferred
upon him by elevation to the Privy
Council of the Empire.
10. That the members of this (',invention, as supporters of a National Policy
for Can.u!a, believe that the bell, tils of
the protective tariff should be further
extended so as to assistand foster our
Limber and silver-lead industries.
11. That this Convention views with
satisfaction the course pursued by the
Provincial Government in taking steps
for a comprehensive inquiry into the
subject of irrigation in this Province.
12. That this Convention condemns
the policy of "graft" now being permitted and encouraged by the Liberal
Party with respect to the public funds
of the Dominion, and also the want of
purity shown by the Liberal Party in
conducting elections.
On Saturday morning the Convention
was addressed by a delegation from the
Asiatic Exclusion League, which was
accorded a cordial hearing and was
heartily cheered at its conclusion. The
Convention went on record as unalter-

Songs and Dancing.
In consequence of the appeal against
the licenses recently is.u.'d to Messrs.
Hygh and Mclntyre, at Merritt, being
sustained by Judge Spinks, the whole
matter of the issue of lie uses at Merritt
was reconsidered at a special meeting
of the Board of Licence Commissioners
at Kamloops on Wednesday. The sitting
was u prolonged one, but the Commissioners eventually ratified their former
decision. The applications of George

are confident that the benefits to
be derived from the Association will
lead lo | very much increased membership from all parts of the Valley, those
resident outside of Nicola being entitled
to the full use of the club room.
Subscriptions for the current year are
BOW due and should be paid to the Secretary-Treasurer G. M. Brash, who will
also be glad to receive applications from
new members.

TATION TO LORD STRATH.ONA.
Opening of N. A. A. Club Rooms.
The formal opening of the new club
room of the Nicola Athletic Association
will take place to-night at eight o'clock.
A varied programme of songs, musical
selections, etc., will be given and there
will be a dance to wind up the evening.
In connection with the club room, a
committee has been appointed to go
into the matter of arranging for indoor
athletics, and it is expected that before
very long, there will be a horizontal bar,
rings and other apparatus for the use
of the members, and an endeavour is
being made to arrange for basket ball.
The house committee in arranging for
the comfort of those using the rooms,
are also endeavouring to make them
attractive by the introduction of reading matter in the way of periodicals,
monthly and weekly, and other literature. It is hoped that it will be possible
to arrange for the nucleus of a small
library, which will appeal to those not
athletically inclined, and which, if it
proves acceptable to the members, will
be enlarged. Thu want of a library in
Nicola has been felt for some time, and
this it is hoped will in some manner
help to fill it.
The Association in thus extending its
original intentions, has necessarily had
to somewhat increase the annual membership fees. To those residing outside
of Nicola,  however,  the  membership
Time Is Extended.
A despatch from Lord Elgin says the
limit of time within which death from
South African war service of officer,
warrant officer or soldier must occur in
order that his family may be eligible
for pension, etc., from army funds, has
been extended from two to seven
years.
Shaming Canada.
Despite the evidence of injury done
to Canada's name by appeals for British
money for Canadian church work, the
Bishop of Keewatin and Rev. T. B.
Clarke, of London, Ont., are addressing
meetings in London, England, under the
auspices of the Colonial and Continental
Society, begging for $21(1,000 for Canadian mission work. The inevitable English comment is that Canada cannot
be so prosperous if it fails to pay for
reli, ions needs for her whole community,
old and young.

Workmen Leaving the
Boundary.
The Duke of Argyll, who was governor-general of Canada in 1878-1883, last
week on behalf of the Anglo-Canadians
in London, presented Lord Strathcona
and Mount Royal, the Canadian High
Commissioner, with a large silver centrepiece, illustrative of the various
phases of Lord Strathcona's life. Replying to the presentation address, the
high commissioner said he hoped soon to
resign his office into younger hands, but
before doing so he desired to see the
proposed All-Red route by way of Canada an accomplished fact.
Church of England Bazaar.
A bazaar in aid cf St. John's Church
will be held in Pooley's Hall, on Wednesday, December 16th. In connection
therewith a novel word making competition, notice of which will be found
in another column, is sure to attract
many competitors, and besides helping
a desirable object, give those competing
a chance of winning two handsome
prizes.
Vancouver Mayorallty.
Aid. J. Edward Bird announced last
week that he would not be a candidate
for the mayoralty. Mayor Bethune
will probably be re-elected by acclamation.
Copper Too Low.
General -Manager Jay P. Graves of
the Granby Consolidated, is authority
for the statement that at the prevailing
price of copper the Granby smelter
cannot continue operations at the present cost of production, and that the
big reduction works will only resume
operations when such action is thoroughly warranted by the copper market.
Workmen Leaving Boundary.
It is estimated that fully fifteen
hundred men have left the Boundary
district during the past week for Spokane and other outside points in search
of work, while several hundred who
have families have remained and will
seek employment at home.

Orientals to Canada. The Convention
then proceeded to elect officers, and on
the report of the committee appointed
for this purpose the following amtt
elected:

The was some rivalry as to the meeting place for the next Convention.
Eventually Kamloops was decided on
and the convent inn will meet there in
November next year. Throughout the
convention the most harmonious spirit
prevailed, and the business was conducted in a manner that left no doubt
as to the enthusiasm and loyalty of
those in attendance. It has proved to
he the most successful political convention ever held in British Columbia, and
the proceedings have been marked hy a
unanimity and a desire for amicable arrangements wheieveruilferencescropped
up, that is usually foreign to a meeting
of this nature.

B. C. Fruit in England.
The popularity of British Columbia
fruit in Great Britain is being constantly referred to in the British press.
The fruit of the province has been
brought to the attention of the public
largely through the measures adopted
by the present provincial government
in sending fruit exhibits to the various
parts of the British Isles in charge of
a competent authority.
The provincial inspector of fruit pests
in calling attention to the fact that the
fruit of this province is receiving well
merited praise from the press of Great
Britain has forwarded the following
letter to the provincial press :
"Sir,-As fruit growing in British
Columbia is rapidly coming to the front
as one of our most promising industries,
and as the press has always been a
most loyal ally of the fruit grower, I
take pleasure in sending you a clipping
from the London "Telegraph " of October 12, which was kindly sent me by
Colonel Warren, another good friend of
horticulture.
"As there is a direct reference to
to Cox's Orange Pippin as being one of
best varieties in the English market,
and as this variety is doing exceedingly
well in British Columbia orchards, (rom
Vancouver Island to Kootenay, I believe
the article in the Telegraph will be of
great interest to your readers, and
perhaps serve as a guide in the choice
of varieties.
"I have'just completed a tour
through the orchards of the mainland
from Vancouver to Fernie, and find
that the following varieties have all
done well, and suffered nothing from
the severity of last winter, viz.,'Grimes
Golden,' 'Cox's Orange Pippin!' 'Wagner,' 'Wealthy,' 'KingTomkins,' 'Gra-
venstein,' 'Blenheim Orange,' 'Mcintosh Red,' ' Johnathan,' and 'Ontario.'
These are all profitable varieties and
seemingly hardy. There are, of course,
many other good varieties which could
be named, but these have come through
a winter of exceptional severity unscathed.
"You will be pleased to hear that in
the suburbs of Rossland, at an altitude
of 3,450 feet, excellent apples, pears,
cherries, plums, prunes, gooseberries,
currants, raspberries and other small
fruits were grown this season. The
most remarkable feature of this horticultural development is the fact that
none of the trees suffered at all by the
severe frosts of last winter.
"All this goes to prove that we have
in this glorious province the most favorable conditions for producing with absolute safety to the grower the best
fruit that can be grown anywhere in
North America. There is a great future for the industry in British Columbia, and a great deal more fruit land
than any of us ever suspected.
"Every trip that I make furnishes
me with surprising facts re the area
of excellent land that is soon to become
the happy home of thousands of families
of industrious, clean-living people."
A Civil Service Bill.
Provincial Secretary Young is now at
work on the civil service bill, which
will be presented early the next session
of the provincial legislature. The act
will provide terms of appointment,
superannuation, apportion civil servants
to grades, fix proportionate salaries and
provide for life, accident and illness
insurance. In the superannuation and
insurance programme it is understood
that the civil servants are to contribute
five per cent, of their salaries. In the
revision of the civil list incident to the
proposed legislation it is understood that
a change will be made in some salaries
to suit the new conditions of living.
To Foster Immigration.
The Western Canada Immigration
Association held a meeting last week
when letters were read from the Board
of Trade of Edmonton and Regina congratulating the Association on its recent
work.
J. Obed Smith, acting for the executive, will go to British Columbia and
take up with the members of British
Columbia the programme of publicity
work now being done for that province
by the Association. It is the wish of
the committee to have the propaganda
arranged to follow the exact lines most
desired by British Columbia.
