Vernon, B.C., Nov. i"'.���Liberal delegates   io  the  n.im.e-   it  82,   from   al!
I pans  of  Ukanagan  < lectora!  district.
: met here this afternoi n to select a
candidate to conies', this riding at the
forthcoming provincial general election. After noteworthy addresses by
leading Lil.er.J-. T. W. Stirling, oi
Kelowna, in an i Ii quenl speech declining nomination, ; ri posed Dr. K. C.
' Macdonald, of this city.   This was seconded  by D. Vankleek, of Armstron.-j,
owing al) this, he said; and amidst great enthusiasm, was carried unanimously.
Jn Or. Macdonald, tbe Liberals of
the Okanagan have a candidate who,
with very little doubt, will defeat
Price Ellison, thi present member.
Many of Mr. Ellison's old supporters
have gone Lack I n him, being unable
to swallow llis supporl of the McBride-
Hawthornthwaite, so-called, Conservative government.
sen words, Mr. Howay announced the
object of the meeting, and Introduced
John Oliver, M.P.F., who had been selected   to  be   the   lirst   speaker.     Mr.
Oliver spoke for nearly an hour and a
half, and in the course of his remarks
brought cut a large number of irrefutable facts which strongly condemned
the   political   administration   of   the
Conservative   government  during  tlie!
time they have I.een in power in this j
province.    The    facts    were    supple-1
mented by a tabulated assortment of
figures,    connected    with    the several/
questionable   deals   which   have   been
pul   through   under the   McBride   administration, and by their aid Mr. Oliver   was  enabled  to   prove  that   the
Conservative government had  lament-
to pay five years' timber licenses in
one lump sum, as lhis. was a greal de-
, ,   | terrent to tbe small mill owner. There
announced  to.
were three differenl charges for timber licenses, viz.. crown .eases, new
licenses and transferred license., and
ihis  was certainly not right.    Timi,- i
was  one  of the most   valuable  assets
of   this   province,   and  out  of   this   n
revenue equal lo all the needs of tha
province    could     be    secured.     This I ���������������
could not be done  while the specula-   they  were   doln
tor had control of such large areas of  themselves,
valuable   limber.     Timber  was   being j ren,  and fo
sold at a high figure now, but it would
not le very long before the speculatoi
would be able to command almost any
price from the mill men, and then the
citizens would have to pay even more
for iheir lumber.    While the  present
government remained in power, there
would be no change in this,   Mr. Bowser  had   openly   made   the   statement
that   they had to give the speculators
a  chance.
DEFENDS MA YOR SCHMITZ.
New York, Nov. 20.-Dr. Edward T. Devine,
who, as special representative of the Red Cross, had
the supervision of the relief work of the society at
San Francisco following the earthquake, declared at
the annual meeting of the New York State branch
of the Red Cross, that while mistakes might have
been made in the distribution of the relief funds,
there was no graft there.
Devine referred to the indictments recently returned against Mayor Schmitz of San Francisco,
growing out of an investigation of municipal affairs,
saying : "There is one person, at least one, who has
had every opportunity to know the truth, who does
not believe the mayor has stolen a single penny of
the relief fund."
Dr. Devine sturdily defended the society in dealing with the disaster, ani insisted that the work of
relief had been well done.

Mr. Oliver resumed his s 'at amid
loud and prolonged applause.
The next speaker to be called upon
by the chairman was James A. Macdonald. K. C, M. P. P. He expressed
regret that he had been so late in
arriving, but he was ably proceeded
by his friend John Oliver, who never
forgot anything and left very little
for anyone who chanced to follow him
to say. One thing however, Mr. Oliver had not touched upon, and that
was "Better Terms." A strong effutt
had been made to make ii a non-par-
tician affair, but politics seeme 1 to

the sum of $100,000 a year for ten
years.*' Mr. McBride left the conference, and refused to accept the offer,
and iu leaving, left British Columbia
in the mess she finds herself to-day.
The speaker did not say that Mr. McBride should have accepted the offer���
ha should have stood out for more.
He met Mr. Fielding outside the committee room, and that gentleman had
promised to assist. Mr. McBride to the
full extent in his power. He undertook to secure for liritish Columbia an
additional $.n,000 per annum for ten
years and $30,000 per annum for all
time to come. Instead of accepting
the offered assistance or going back
to the conference and asking for more,
Mr. McBride left the meeting, gave
up the fight and went to New York.
He then came back to British Columbia and expected the people to fall on
liis neck and say: "What a heroic
fight you have, made tor the pVov-
ince!"
Mr. McBride's action in the mailer
showed that he recognized the authority of the conference to deal with
the matter. If the conference hai
any rights in the matter, he should
have stayed wiih it until he saw it
through clear to tbe finish.
There could he a readjustment of
the .subsidies without the consent of
the provinces, but not without th .'
consent of the Imperial parliament,
which had the power to amend the B.
N". A. act. The speaker did not be- ,
lieve, however, that the Imperial parliament would make any changes in
lhe act without the consent of the
provinces, The provinces must all
agree on a plan of action, and then th-.
Imperial authorities would be able .
take the matter up and deal with it,
The speaker then took up the question of railways. He said if anything
was badly needed iu the province, It
was more roads and railways in order
lhal the people might he assisted in
opening up the resources of the province. The north needed assistance.
The southern sections of the province
had been helped considerably, und
now attention should l.e given to the
vasl territory lying north of the C P.
!!. system, which was at present wlthoul means of connection wiih the out-
si ie v..,rhi. Mr. McBrlde mlghl have

bers of the naval reserve, was denounced at to-day's session of the
American Federation ol Labor convention. President Gompers touched extensively on this subject in his annual
report.
Delegate Fa rusher, who read this
portion of the committee's report, concluded by saying: "We recommend
that the American Federation of Labor reiterate its condemnation of this
bill, with its un-American provision'
for conscription." The resolution was
adopted.
The child labor resolution introduced in the l'nited States congress,!
calling for an official investigation of
the woman and child labor system iu
the United States, was approved, an I
its passage by congress recommended.
The   bill  calling  for  an  eight-hour
day   for   railroad   labor   was   also  ap-:
proved.      The    convention    officially !
went, on  record  as inviting Ihe deputies of railroads to a joint conference
for a consideration of labor questions.
The anti-injunction bill was endorsed and the injunction plan scored.
Japanese, Chinese and Hindu labor
was included in a sweeping denunci t-
tion of Asiaiic immigration, and a demand for further exclusion. "Slavery"
was the term used to imply the employment, of Asiatics in the Panama
canal work. "If," reads tlie report,
"the canal cannot be built except by
the introduction of involuntary servitude, it is bet ier that it he not built
at all."

Holland',    i until., r,nm     IVrformUM ,
In   Preventing   I lno,l_,
Holland is a country of wooden pile.,
and dikes, fur the people are perpetu- ���
ally    fighting   against    the   encroach-
ments of water.   One building in Am- i
Bterdam rests on no fewer than 13.G.1D j
piles,   though   the   dikes   around   the I
town, which have been erected at enor-
mons expense, effectually prevent any j
chance of a  flood.   The streets of tlie
flourishing port of Rotterdam even are j
frequently under water In the winter, j
and  In  Home  parts of south  Holland I
tile people are compelled to do their
shopping In boats.
When the Zuyder Zee breaks on to
the land, those who wade up to their
knees along the street, of a flooded
village meet all manner of flsh. This
Is explained by the faet that the Zuyder Zee, with Its mud bottom. Is literally crammed with finny tribes; and
one authority states that If It were
well scraped of all Its flsh one year,
It would be full again the next.
The land of Holland is really of four I
distinct levels, and from ten to twelve I
feet between the highest nnd the low-
est.   To make (he land dry, tbe water ]
Is punipi-d from the lowest level to the |
one Immediately above It, and so on.
tmtll   the   water   has   been   returned i
again to the sea.   A  large number of
engineers,are specially engaged to look
after the dikes, and no Ipss a sum than '
13,500,000 is expended every  year In
keeping thos>. fortifications ngainst'tbe
���ea In propc: repair.
He  Mux.   Have Strength,  a l.ul.U   l_> ���
and n   Deft   Hand.
Lying on his chest along the boa's
deck, the sponge tisher, with his water
glass���a pane set in a box fitted wiiii
handles looks down forty feet into tie-
clear depilis. With one band he grasp .
nnd sinks a slender pole, sometime:,
fifty feet In length, fitted at the end
with a double hook. The sponge one !
discovered, the book is deftly inserted
at the rocky base, and by a BUdde i
Jerk the sponge ls detached.
This curt description of what seem,
the simple work of s|>onge fishing glvei
no Idea of the real skill and exertion
needed. The eye of the tisher has to I. ���
trained by long experience to peer Into
the sea and tell the commercially vai
uable sponges from those that arn
worthless. Ho must have a deft hau 1
to detach tlie sponge without a tear.
Above all, while doing this with on ���
hand, he must manipulate with the
other the water glass, as the wavei
sway It sideways und up and down.
The strain on eye nnd body is most intense, to say nothing of the cramped
position and exposure to wind and wet,
whieh, first and last, make every
sponge fisher n victim of acute rbeumn
tlsm. Vet, with all his arduous toil.
an expert sponge fisher earns not more
than ��.3 :i month besides his keep o i

"Privilege," seen so oft*J of late  iu

used commonly to signify a right, immunity or benefit enjoyed by n person

the word signifies nn ordinance in fa- j

DON'T WORRY
Avoiding the  Doctor.
Dr. Sanderson, an old Scotch physician, was a queer character, but ii
clever  doctor.
So roughly did he handle bis patients
that the ignorant were chiefly nuxlous
to escape hlm. The story goes that as
he was passing (llong the street one
day a sweep rolled from the top to the
bottom of a staircase outside one of
tbe bouses.
"Are you burl'." called the doctor,
ruiiniug forward.
"Not a bit, doctor noi n bit," replied
thc man In baste. "Indeed, I feel a1
the  better."
