SPEAKING AS A CONSERVATIVE, SIR CHARLES HIBBERT HIPPER TELLS
Wi HE CAN NOT SUPPORT WIDE GOVERNMENT

Stultified Leader R. L. Borden���One-Time Constituents of JFormer
Federal Minister Endorse Him in His Stand Against
Premier's Predatory Policy.
oiy WILL BUILD
IWO MORE SCHOOLS
Faced with the clear, undeniable
facts regarding the railway policy of
the McBride-Bowser administration,
at last seeing the truth through the
mass of hiineom thai has been handed to them by the government speakers in the campaign, the meeting that
paeked the St. Patrick's hall to it-
most capacity lasi night rose en
masse and declared that the despoil-
ers of the province must qui| office,
and make room for clean, effective
administration.
Triumph for Right.
The burning words of sir Charles
Hibbert Tupper, one of the staunch-
est supporters of true Conservatism,
carried conviction to every man that
listened to him, and although Conser
vaihes an.l Liberals sat side by side,
no voice arose to question a single
word that passed bla lips. li was
the greatest triumph tor the righl
that the city of New Westminstei
has ever witnessed, a great audience,
only limited hy the si/e of the hall,
rising above party hounds, to Btand
as a unit in the flght againsi the
"mad railway policy of McBride,
Bowser and Green," and to prevenl
the province from being ground down
under a burden ot unwarranted personal taxation.
Sir Charles Hihbert Tuppei has
been condemned because as a Consi r-
vative he has taken the platform
a| .ins; the go\ e mme it ol Bi li ish Co
lumbia, Conservative In name. Bul
the speaker of lasl evening is a Con-
���i - ative of the old party which made'
confederation and adhered to princi-
pii s which the McBride government
has violated. sir Charles, by opposing the British Columbia governmenl
lias not violated the Conservativi
principles, and he is still supported
by the Conservatives r>i his eastern
constituency which he has represented tor many years and where he has
never Buffered defeat.
Letter from Constituents.
i.ast   night   from  the  platform  Sir
Charles read the following letter from
the   Conservative   party In    his old
constituency, New Glasgow, N. S.:
New Glasgow   N. S.,
Nov. 16, W09.
Sir   Chai les   llil.hen     Tupper.   K.   C.
Vancouver. B. C:
Dear Sir.���Realizing that it  is probable   that     some     Conservatives   will
years. Sir Charles dealt with the
railway policy alone, for lie is a Conservative, but demanded that the
public recognize that this question
alone was n ore than sufficient to warrant a change of government, it demanded it. He showed that the
agreements made by the other provinces which had helped the C. N. R-
to build could not be compared with
the ill-considered policy of the local
go\ e i nment, for they had as their
very foundation control of rates. Mr.
McBrlde could not go back on liis
written and signed agreemeni with
Mr. Mann after tlie referendum had
been taken, for he would not dare t0
repudiate his agreement; if h ��� did so
be would be removed from o_T.ce for
unconstitutional action.
The chairman, on introdui lag Sir
Hibbert,, remarked that the meeting
was not, in a  sense, a political one,
such as Dr. Green had f tvored blm
with, bui he had been before the public long enough to know that it meant
' little. He had once b' en praised
i and flatteringly introduced by the
Conservatives, but now his one-time
friends of that party in British Columhia ransacked the dictionary for op-
P"obrious terms in which to refer to
liini  in  a different   light.
He wanted to dispose of the foul
calumnies which a certai'i section of
the Conservative party, though fortunately only in British Columbia.
! had attempted to heap upon him. A
political scaramouch by the name of
Bowser had even dared to include in
his calumnies the name of a man who
foi flftj : .ars had battled dlslnterest-
in the interests of the Dominion
or ���' a' ' a i: ,n who hitherto had
bi pn spared tlie false attacks of political muckrakers: Sir Charles Tupper,

and Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, a

them.      Sir Hibbert  was not  going to
i speak from a political standpoint, but
i from the standpoint of a British Columbian who    had  all    his Interests
here.
When  the speaker of  the evening

several minutes before the deafening

with the railway policy of the McBride government, we decided to

We are proud of you. If. as is stat
ed In some papers, you are going to

grot Is that we cannot be there to
hear you."
The   Railway  Policy.
Sir Charles took the railway agree-
ment of the McBride-Bows r "KM
gallon piecemeal and tore It ^u a
tlvely, into shreds. When he to
Ished. the whole policy of Ole 8^���
ment stood like a skeleton sho n of
all its alurements. ll could only be
considered as an insane wlW.epa
unconsidered scheme" thrown out M
a forlorn hope to hold the raiing
leaders In power   for   anothei  four
his father.
For the cause of his own action in
the   present   campaign,   Premier   Mc-
' Bride had attempted to show that be
was a disappointed seeker after a
coal license, while Bowser claimed
that it was on account of being refused a brief in certain cases in
which the government was interested.
"1 never asked a favor of any niem-
��� ber of the present governm '.it since
l set foot i.i the province ten years
ago." declared the  speaker.      "I nev-
e er applied for a coal license from Mr.
' McBride or from any one else."
j     What he had done was to stake out
an oil claim in 1001 in the Kootenays
as any private citizen was privileged
to do, but the action was absolutely
without the cognizance of Mr. McBride and was none of his business.
Though refused the application for
the oil lands on account of the mixup
of many of the claims there, he had
maintained that he was entitled to it
and had upheld his title, not through
any favoritism of Mr. McBride's, but
through the supreme court of Canada, a body in which Mr. McBride's
Influence was small. The premier,
in speaking of this matter, displayed
his crass ignorance of the facts of
the case, for he could not have assisted Sir Hibbert in any way to secure the desired lands. But the premier had succeeded in having passed
an order in council, which gave useless and inoperative licenses to all
holders of oil lands, and the speaker
had fought the order and had ridiculed it as it deserved. The supreme
court of Canada held that the order
was ultra vires and illegal.
For his action in this matter the
speaker had heen rounded on by the
premier, and accused of hurting his
party.
"But I have not learned," said he.
"that Intelligent allegiance to party
makes a man a slave." And tliis was
the cause of Mr. McBride's statement
tint Sir Hibbert Tupper was working
again:-.; the governmenl on the railway question, because he had been
hefused a coal license.
"That disposes of one slander," resumed the speaker, "but it shows how
careful a man should be about the
company he keeps."
And then in regard to the way in
which they were linking the name
of Sir Charles Tupper with tlie C. N.
It. steal. A few years ago Sir Charles
while on a visit to the coast, had expressed a desire to see Mr. McBride
and have a talk with him on general
matters, railways included. On account of the old gentleman's age, his
son had gone with him merely to see
that nothing befel him on the journey to Victoria. Sir Charles had
met Premier McBride and had talked
with him on matters of general interest, among others the plans of
Mackenzie and Mann for extending
the C. N. R. through Britisli Columbia. Sir Hibbert was present but
took no part in the discussion.     On
PATE OF PROVINCE
IN PEOPLE'S HANDS
Electors Can Cas} Ballots
Today From Eight in the
Morning to Seven at Night
At 8 o'clock tliis morning the polling booths at the provincial court
house will be opened to the electors,
and will continue open until 7 p.m.,
after which the counting of tlie ballots will be commenced.
Statutory  Holiday.
The day is a statutory holiday
throughout the province, having been
made so by the Provincial Elections
Amendment act of 1902, one of the
clauses of which enacts that the election day shall be -a public holiday,
and that every employer of labor
must give the employees four conse-
cutove hours between the open'ng
and the closing of the poll, for the
purpose of voting. The penalty for
non-compliance with the provisions of
the clause is a fine not exceeding
$100.
It is also provided that the bars
and saloons must be closed from the
hour of midnight preceding until alter the polling, tlie hour in this case
being set at 8 p.m., and Chief Mcintosh of tlie city police states that this
provision will he strictly enforced by
the city police. All day yesterday
men were at work transforming the
courtroom at the court house iito a
polling booth, and by evening it was
scarcely recognizable. The chairs
where the public find accommodation
during trials have been removed and
the space divided into booths, the
familiar white cloth affairs in which
the fate of so many governments has
been  decided.
Method  of  Voting.
These booths are labeled with the
letters of the alphabet, the voter entering the botli which bears the initial letter of his name. There lie
will find the necessary equipment for
marking the two ballots which will
be handed to him. One of these
he shoul.l mark clearly with a cross
against the name of J. J. Johnston,
the mark signifying a vote for sound,
sane government, a progressive railway policy, free bridge and white labor. The other ballot is for the plebiscite on the local option issue. The
ballots will then he deposited in the
respective boxes in charge of a deputy in each booth.

this occasion he was described by Mr.
Bowser as the attorney of Sir
Charles.
Nothing at all except informal,
friendly talk took place at the meeting, and Sir Charles, on leaving, said
that he would probably see Mr. Mackenzie In the east and if Mr. McBride
wanted him to find anything out
about their plans for British Columbia he would endeavor to do so as he
was very much interested in the development of the coast. Mr. McBrlde thanked him and a few days
later sent him a note asking him not
to trouble In the matter as he did not
think the time ripe to force the hand
of the C. N. R. Sir Charles left
shortly after this on a trip to the old
country and probably forgot all about
it.
Now this simple act of friendship
has been raked up by Bowser and
made into a story in which Premier
McBWde was seen refusing to Sir
Hibbert Tupper the task of negotiating with the C. N. R. The whole
base concoction was a miserable slander against Sir Charles Tupper who
Doughty Orators Addressed
Scanty Gathering in Opera House Last Evening.
A formidable array of Conservative
talent decked the boards at the
Opera House last night. Though the
gentlemen on the platform did not
seem to be very much interested in
what each speaker was saying the
audience made up for it and displayed
their intelligent interest by repeated
interruptions.
Ex-Attorney-General Wilson claimed
that the freight rates on the C. P. R.
would never be regulated by the government. "How do you know?"
shouted an inquisitive individual at
the back of the hall. "What's that?"
replied the speaker, which he no
doubt considered a sufficiently lucid
response.
In disposing of the Oliver policy
he said that subsidizing branch lines
; was very much like building a man's
libs before constructing his backbone   (Voice    from tlie    back, "How
'about  Eve?").
W. Norman Bole, K. C asserted that if the Conservatives were
returned to power, a provincial  uni-
I versity  would  be  immediately  established at New Westminster.
Nine out of ten men that Mr. Gif-
��� ford had approached to ask them for
I their votes, had replied.    "Certainly,
| Mr. Gifford."      R. L. Reid, after de-
I ploring the fact that personalities
had crept into the campaign, a thing
that he utterly abhorred, took occasion to compare the editor of the
Saturday Sunset to Balaam's ass.
With such humorous pleasantries as
these the long-winded Conservative
gentlemen consumed a weary evening;	
I
was too far away to disprove it or to
resent it, before the election would be
' over.
| Mr. McBrlde had boasted that 45
per cent, of the Liberals in the province were in hia favor. "This ls a
case    when    we    should   rise above
1 party," he had said ln Chiiliwack to
the Liberals. But wtat was sauce
for the goose was sauce for the gan-
j der.      The    speaker    fully  believed

But there was no analogy between
the bargains of the two provinces.
Mr. Robl'.n acquired lines from the
Northern Pacific and handed them
over to the C.N.R. on a contract, the
very basis of which was a reduction
of rates. But these were prairie
roads costing $30,000 a mile, while
here In British Columbia railways
cost over $60,000 a mile. Moreover,
the Manitoba agreement was sanctioned by the federal government.
Their concessions were wrung out of
Mackenzie and Mann, and still the
province kept the right to tax the
railway. Yet Mr. McBrlde was giving ten years exemption.

Johnston.
lie did this because no Conservative had had strength enough to
stand up here against the McBride
railway policy. Premier McBride, in
his own words, had once said that
the government should give the C.
N. li. decent treatment and nothing
more, and tiiis was a right attitude.
Political Buccaneering.
On October l!��th the Conservative
party stood for such a policy, but this
was suddenly reversed, without consultation of any board of trade or
other body. Mr. McBride had put
the proposition up to Messrs. Fulton
and Tatlow, like a pistol to their
breasts, and gave them 24 hours to
accept the railway policy or get out.
It was the act of a buccaneer.
"I am prepared to stake my political existence on my stand." declared
Sir Charles.
No man could deny that Bowser
and McBride had discussed 10 or 11
clauses; now only one of these which
they chose as good for the province,
was to be found in the agreement.
Was that not significant? Mackenzie & mann had given no authority
to accept anything not in the written
agreement. The dissolution of the
house was asked in order to take a
referendum on the written agreement. But the government got cold
feet at the start and kept the document secret until October 30. They
held it secret until they were forced
to produce it.
"Mr. Mann has the government's
sign manual and the government cannot repudiate it."
If the government said that they
must have other clauses placed in tlie
agreement. Mr. Mann would say "you
signed a contract with me, you obtained the sanction of the people, and
the signature of the governor. You
must keep your bargain." If the
premier refused, the government
would either turn him out of office on
the ground of unconstitutional action,
or be turned out himself."
Mr. Bowser, before the agitation for
control of rates had grown to alarming proportions, said that he had discussed the matter with Mr. Mann,
but thought that the ferteral government could control them. This was
not satisfactory to the board of trade
of Vancouver, and Air. Heaps, a prominent Conservative, went to Victoria
to protest. Mr. McBride then said
that such a clause would affect the
sale of bonds.
Now Messrs. McBride and Bowser
said that they could have the clause
put in later. But no word had come
from Mr. Mann to say so.
"Did you ever hear of a population of 300,000 people pledging their
credit to a proposition over which
they had no control? Yet Mr. McBride said that the federal government had all the necessary control
over the C.N.R. They had "said that
Mr. Roblin made an arrnnrrenient with
the  C.N.R. and secured lower  rates.
the correct mileage.
McBride and Bowser had also said
chat there would be a provision to
compel the purchase of supplies here,
"p'ovided they could purchase thrm !
at eastern prices." How much would
they get here at such prices? asked
Sir Charles, and the reply came, j
"None."
At    Chiiliwack    the    electors were |
told that  $30,000,000  would  be  spent
in  four  years  in  the  province  if  the
C.  N.  R. agreement    went    through,
and that most of it would be spent in
that  part.      In Vancouver the figure i
was raised to $40,000,000. and It was \
all to flow in there.
In this election, said Sir Charles
Hibbert Tapper, men had been stirred
to their depths, men had left their
desks to take the platform who could
have been moved by nothing less. In
his own case he had had not a particle of political ambition in British
Columbia. He had served the country before, and had never known defeat. He had served McBride when
he first came and fought on party
lines until he found that the McBrlde
party was not following the traditions
of the true Conservative party, and in
the case of Mr. Green had been guilty
of gross graft.
The speaker had no ambition to
enter the Victoria house. When Mr.
Borden, the only leader whom he
recognized, gave him permission to
say why he had effaced himself from
public life, he would then do so. He
had objected to certain Conservatives
on whom Mr. Borden had been leaning without knowing their true characters.
The only word of true statesmanship spoken hy Mr. McBride in the
campaign was. "Sink party politics,
stand by the province, fight the good
fight."
Cheers and shouts of applause followed the speaker as he took his seat.
A resolution of thanks was moved by
W. T. Cooksley and seconded by J.
B. Kennedy. ex-M. P., and a chorus
of other voices, and received with the
utmost enthusiasm.
Tn replying. Sir Charles said that
the obligation was all on his side He
realized that the British sense of
"fair play" was existent on the coast
as elsewhere, and prompted the electors to hear both sides. He only hit,
and hit hard, at those whom he regarded with the utmost contempt.
St. Patrick's hall echoed again and
again with the cheers that told the
feeling of a representative gathering
of New Westminster electors, as Sir
Charles left the platform, cheers tor
Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper. cheers
for Candidate Aid. Jack Johnston, and
cheers for the men who could rise
above party to save the province.

E. J. Fader, proprietor of the Russell Hotel, has recently added a grocery business to
his many undertakings. The new stores are facing the Russell Hotel on Carnarvon
street, forming part of the Odd Fellows Block. The stores are perhaps the best
adapted to the grocery business in the city; the entire flooring being of concrete, mice
and other rodents are unable to penetrate. The stock is entirely new, the best and
purest of every line only being kept, and the prices, as shown below, are impossible to
beat. Since starting business in the Royal City E. J. Fader has spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars in salaries, and confidently looks forward to his store being strongly
patronized by not only the business men of the city, but by all careful housewives looking for the best as well as the cheapest.
Attention is also drawn to the Pitt Lake Brick, Real Estate and Timber propositions,
and Machinery.

THE LAST SHOT.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1909.
THE HOUR OF BATTLE.
Today the electors of British Columbia have a solemn duty, a very
solemn duty to perform. They have
to decide to whom shall be entrusted
The closing meeting of the campaign which took place at St. Patrick's ball last night was the most
notable that has occurred in this
city during the past five weeks. It
had tbe unique distinction of being a
meeting held In support of the Liberal cause, but attended by men of all
shades of opinion, and addressed by
a man of eminence In the state, who
is. as he himself avowed, Immutably
Conservative, yet driven to the opposite camp by a conscientious desire to
save tlie province from the serious
consequences which must ensue from
the railway policy Premier McBride
seeks to force upon the people.
The Intelligent attention which was
given  in  the splendid  speech of Sir

much it was appreciated.

campaign, so far as this city Is concerned, and so laden wil the poten-

this province, whether, in short
very Importanl duty shall be again
entrusted to the soi-disant Conserva-
tive Government led by Mr. McBride,
or to an administration yel to be
formed under the aegis of the Liberal party.
Tho issue upon which this momentous choice must be mad

Prom day to day during the campaign we have d. ali at length In these
columns uith the features and circumstances of this policy. We bave

would be inimical to the agricultural
and commercial Interests and ruinous
to the financial credit of the province.
This briefly for the follow ing reasons:
That the guaranteeing of tlie bonds
of the Canadian Northern railway for
$35,000 per mile at four per cent interesl Will impose a liability ol no
less than $46,400,  upon the province. This represents approximately
$155 per capita of the population.
The province is not in a position to
withstand such an immense liability
and its credit will in consequence bfe
seriously injured.
That there is no real security for
this vast amount. Mr. McBride has
spoken of a firsl mortgage, but no
mention of this is made in the agri < ���
ment, which Mr. .Mann says expresses exactly what the proposals are.

Thai no provision Is made for any
constructional work io be commenced
at  the coast end of the line.
Those are the main points Of objection in the railway policy of Mr,
McBride. and ii does seem to us that
they form the strongesl possible reasons why the electors should not endow the outgoing Government with a
renewed tei iii of power.
On the other hand John Oliver, tin-
leader of the Liberal party, takes the
ground that if the Canadian Northern
wants to get a line to the coast by
easy grades they should build it them.

the province.
But he also offers an intelligent and
progressive policy of railway construction carried out in conjunction
with the Federal Government, and at
a moderate but fixed cost to the province.
This would provide for a short line

A.  J.   Nixon,  Chief  Operating  Agent,
Investigates Conditions in New
Westminster District.
That the board of railway commissioners for the Dominion intends to
make a complete investigation into
railway conditions on tlie coast, and
in New Westminster district, is evidenced by the presence in the city
yesterday of A. J. Nixon, chief operating officer of the board of railway
commissioners. Mr, Nixon arrived
in the city on Tuesday by special
train and was met by Superintendent McNeill of the Great Northern.
In company with Mr. McNeill, the visitor went over the lilies of the Great
Northern as far as Huntingdon on the
boundary line, and over the Port
Guichon line, and throughout showed
a keen appreciation of the existing
conditions.
Yesterday morning Mr. Nixon Interviewed the president and secretary
of the board of (rade, with reference
io a number of represntations made
to the railway commission In session
here recently, regarding the local
railway sen ice particularly on the
Groat Northern. Interviewed by a reporter of the Daily Newe, Mr. Nixon
stated thai he had nothing to state
for publication until after be had
made bis report to Ottawa, He had
thoroughly Inspected the service given by the Great Northern and by the
C. P. U. during bis trip, an l Investigated the matters brought to his attention. .-
Neither Presidenl Lee nor Secretary Wade had anytl lng to say regarding their conversation with Mr.
Nixon, which thoy regarded as confidential.

The hull of the steamer Paystreak
which is licing built for the koyal
City Navigation Company to take the
run between this city and Chiiliwack
will be launched on Monday of the
coming week.
At the present time the finishing
touches are being put to tlie hull and
upper works of the vessel as she lies
on lhe ways of the Westminstei- .Marine Railway Company. It is customary to build the wheel house and
upper works of vessels after they
have been launched, but in this case
speed is a consideration, and two
gangs of men have been al  work on
the  vessel   for  weeks  past, one on the
hull and the other on the deckhouse,
Hoth are now practically ready.
Alter the launching the vessel will
be towed to the Schaake Machine
Works wharf where the machinery
and holler will he installed. Owing
lo the facl that the BWing on the
Lulu island bridge is not now working, she will be taken oul into the
main channel of the river by way of
Eburne and Steveston.
Work on the installation of the machinery will be commenced as soon
as she moors at the Schaake Wharf,
but the holler which is being made
in the east has not yet arrived and
may cause some delay.
It is expected that the vessel will
be ready to take the run at about fhe
commencement of the coming year.

oul ni  tha following official decision
ding    contests for    the Stanley
cup for 1909-10:
"'I'ln' expressed wish of the trustees
is io have challenging and defending

is a asy in overcome iho circumstances       The    mosl    desirable plan

"li is apparenl thai this year everj stop will l.o taken to prevenl tb''

for a raid ..n the Siauioy cup, Such
expeditions, although thej aro rarely
enough successful ventures aro obviously oul ..i harmony with tho spirit
of upon ami general competition that
has I.oon engendered by tho donation
of tho Stanley cup."
The above decision will therefore
allow iho cup holdei > to play men
who wi re nol membi rs of iasi year's
championship team, ami also allow
challeneeglng clubs to play mon whom
the trustees barred lasi spring.
A writer in the Spotring Chronicle,
which is published in Manchester,
England, has been contrasting sport
in Canada and the United Stales, and
ho has iho following to say concerning championships held in tbis country:
"A rumor is current in Canadian
athletic circles that the future Canadian amateur championships will ho
confined to Canadians. This moans
that the Americans who have hitherto carried away a lair share ol thes..
honors win in future be barred from
I   e    happy   hunting   ground.
"One of the mam roa ons lor lh''
proposition, or rumor, taking effeel
is thai ihe Canadian amateur has no
chance against  tho American profes-
oi ally-trained man. Tho lai ter arrives in a more highly .trained sianr
ihan many professionals, ami. in iho
opinion of Canadian au horltles, tins
facl is doing much in retard sporl
in tho Dominion.
"Tho Canadian  is tired of playing

native w'>;il.i moan a keener attention to a  lengthy  pnecoss of pro-
fi     al training, bo prefers to hold

iho statement, sufficient in many
minds for Instituting the barring

cide  Political  Supremacy.
I Young British Columhia is feeling
considerable    Interesl  In the preseni
I (.lections, and political discussion
runs high in the schools. Much heat-
i ed  debate  having  failed  to satisfac-1
torily establish  the claims of either
of the two great  political parties, the .
boys of tlie High School cast around j
I for some means wbicb should determine once and for all the superiority
of one or tlie other. A football match
I was voted the ideal way and yesterday teams representing tlie Liberals
and Conservatives met in deadly
strife at Moody square. As might
have heen expected tlle batl la resulted in a decisive victory for the Liberals who secured four goals lo their
opponents' two.
This method of deciding political
supremacy is recommended to the
leaders of  the  parties in  tbe present
campaign.
Prominenl among the players on
the victorious team yesterday was

leader.

THE POLITICAL PARSON.
Editor Daily News:
Dear Sir,���Permit me a brief reply
magazines these statements from an I servltive Labor Squashers Sweep the
editorial: "Any man who knows the \ Typo's and all other Unions into the
saloons well can honestly say that j Sea. He would, But you see He needes |
the most of them have forfeited the their help to enable Him to get that

pulpit. In all my twenty-five years
ministry 1 have never taken politics
into the pulpit. 1 have discussed
moral issues which were before the
public, and 1 think in such a fair-
minded manner as to Insure the confidence of just men of different shade
of political opinion. And I discuss
these issues according to the principles of tbe Gospel of Peace, In an address given ln Queen's Avenue church
in which I said, "If constitutional
lights were denied us we were prepared to secure them even If blood
had to be shed in the attempt." The
rights and privileges which as a
democratic people we enjoy were secured with that purchase price. And
who will deny, if need be, the same
price to defend them. The Prince
of Peace once used a scourge to make
some offenders move a little faster.
The Good Hook says, "The wicked
flee when no man pursueth," but they
make very much better time when
some one moved with righteous Indignation gets after them.
I am sorry that the sermon which
he heard in St. Andrew's church on
Sabbath evening disturbed his poise
of spirit. Tlie challenge made therein, to which he refers, was not in regard to prohibition, but ln regard to
the open bar and public drinking. In
that connection I said, "The bar has
outlived its usefulness; it has forfeited its right to live; the sentence
of death is being executed on it.
Why? Because it is a moral curse, a
social blight, and an economic burden." That position I am prepared
to defend against all comers.
In that connection he heard me
quote from one of the leading liquor

I am pleased, however, that lt drove
him to the Scriptures. Even though
his vision Is a little blurred, his judgment somewhat warped with tlie associations of years, and his exegesis
faulty, it will do him good to study
the Old Book. "All Scripture Is given by inspiration and is profitable."
1 know lt was an oversight, but he
overlooked the passage which says,
"Look not upon the wine when It Is
red, when it giveth his color in the
cup, when it moveth itself aright."
He passed b.v that other passage
which says, "Woe unto hlm that giveth his neighbor drink, that puttest
the bottle to him. and makest him
drunken." He quite forgot to mention that the opening sentence of the
commandments for which he expresses such profound admiration, is
j a prohibition "Thou Shalt Not," and
| he knows, or should, that the principles underlying the "Ten Commandments" cover all life and oppose nil
evil.
The great fight now uoing on in
this province is to determine which
shall rule, the decalogue or the demijohn.
I am for the decalogue. Where Is
my friend Cooksley? Yes. when the
smoke of battle clears away we shall
meet and shall indeed decide on
which side of this great question the
Bible is.

piece de resistance at the New Westminster Opera House on Monday, November 29, it is expected will cause
a run on the box offlce.
The story of the play is tliat of a
somewhat selfish young married man
who believes in spiritualism to the
exclusion of everything else. He is
upbraided by his wife and her mother
for his foolish belief. Upon being
left alone he lies down upon a couch
and proceeds to dream a fantastic
story dealing with a fairy daughter
of Venus, Mephisto, and other spirits.
During the action humorous situations are brought about by the aid or
electrical effects and shadowy tableaux. A climax Is reached when
the young husband sees his wife,
whom he loves as much as he is capable of loving any one other than
himself, ln the arms of a chum and
former rival for her hand. He draws
his revolver and fires point blank at
the  pair.      The report  of  the  pistol

P' I?'will be seen that this Une does
not touch Princeton coal, that lt��
many miles from Granite Creek coal
and that lt gives no connection d��
tween Aspen Grove and Nicola. IM���
Is nothing in the McBride policy-JO
provide for any of these connections.
Neither is there any short connection
across the Hope Mountains WP
ton by the Kettle Valley route Is ������
miles from Vancouver. By tne w
position policy it would be only *��*
miles. Princeton, which ls not touched by the K. V, would, by the Opposition policy, be 150 miles from Vancouver. Granite Creek coal would be
130 miles. Hedley would be 175 miles
and Keremeos 195 miles. All these
would be brought into touch with
Vancouver.
The Opposition is not opposed to
the construction of the Kettle Valley
nor of aiding It by subsidy. It is very
much in favor of lt. It provides part
of the Hope Mountain link which the
Opposition is committed to.
Note where the dotted line touches
the Kettle Valley line on the Coquo-
halla. That is Just 37 miles. The
Opposition will build that link, and
give the Kettle Valley, the C. P. R-.
the V. V. & E. and all other roads
running rights over it. THAT LINK
IS THE KEY TO THE SITUATION.
By lt the can control freight rates
to any part of Southern Brltsh Columbia. The V. V. & E. would be
only too glad to build from Prlncton
where the line is now completed, to
the Junction of the K. V. and the Government line. Thus the whole of the
Southern Similkameen, the Boundary,
the Okanagan, the Kootenays, would
be connected up at one stroke and
the province would be in absolute
control of the freight situation.
The heavy line from Kamloops to
Nicola Is the proposed G. T. P. line.
That line might be extended to Hope
by following the route of the K. V.
up the Coldwater and going down the
Coquohalla, but if the K. V. is built
that will not be necessary as the G.
T. P. can Becuro running rights over
the K. V. to the Government line and
thus come Into Hope.
The G. T. P. is willing now to en
ter into a contract to build trom '
Jaune Cache and to   commence �����
struction as soon as the contract I
signed.
The Provincial Rights party Is ���
opposed to the coming of the C. % 1
It wants the C. N. R. to come, teS
wants it to come on a bargain
will be fair to British Columbia,'
will return value for the
given to it.   Under the McBride I
icy we get a maximum of liability i
a minimum of either service or *
trol of rates, ln fact absolutely

AS OTHERS SEfc IT.
Uncertain as to Liabiiity.
The Governmenl Is nol .- i sure, ;ii-!
ter all, that it may i.ot be called upon ,
to shoulder its liability in  the deal
��ith   Mackenzie   &   Mann.    Premiei
McUride   said   on   Saturday   even   -
tliat  he  thought  it  would  be  bettei
before giving guarantees on bonds for
the-  construction   of  brunch   lines   to
wail and see the result ol the work
on the wain line.   But if the liability
it only nominal, if there is no greater
probability of the province being ralI-
*A upon to meet the Interest on the
bonds   than   there  would  be  if    the
Government were to put its signature
on the paper of the Bank ol Montreal.
why thia timidity?   It tbe deal in part
will mean an expenditure of millions
.a month in the city of Vancouver, why
this   apparent   misgiving   as   to   who
shall have to pay the piper?    Some
one will  have to meet the debt,  we
know, but we are told it will not be
the people of the province either indirectly    in    excessive      transporation
charges or directly out of the treasury.    Therefore  why not   double  the
expenditure by guaranteeing bonds up
lo  forty-two   millions   ut   least?     .No
one will have to pay, and surely lew
ot us but may succeed in grubbing a
Tew dollars out of the forty-two millions.    Here is u real royal road to
wealth,   and   both   Premier   McBride
.and  Dreadnought   Bowser appear  to
be afraid  to lead therein.    The situation is a most extraordinary one.���
Victoria Times.
The   Liberal   Railway   Policy.
If Mr. Oliver and his party are returned they will take up the reins of
Government as firmly and us deeply
pledged to a railway policy us is the
McBride  administration,  which    appeals to the electors directly and sole-
ly on this issue.   Mr. Oliver has repeatedly given this assurance. British
Columbia, as we are never tired of repeating, is crying out for the Canadian Nori hern.   Mr. Oliver has repeatedly stated  that   the only   difference
between   the  McBride administration
and the party which is opposed to it
is not the difference between railways
and no railways, but is a difference of
tiie basis on which railways are to be
brought in.   Mr. Oliver lias made tentative  proposals   which    have    commended themselves to a large body���
we believe to a majority, of the electors.   He has said that he is willing
to go so far as to grant a direct cash
subsidy of $10,000 per mile, of which
sum $6400  would be contributed    by
tbe  Dominion  Government,    lie  has
also stated that in pluces where construction is difficult, such as Ifl  the
Hope Mountain Pass he is willing that
Ihe provincial  subsidy  should  be  as
_______ as $500 per  mile.    Mr.  Oliver's
policy Is to promote conolization, by
opi ..in- up the country south of Kaia-
loops.��� Vancouver World.
C.N.R. Proposes Hope Mountain Route
��� fact of the mutter is, Hick McBride is simply distracted over this
rallwax question. He has changed
base twice on the Hop ��� Mountain
proposition. Last spring he wanted
ilu C. N. R. to join hands with the
G. X. It. to come over the Hope Mountains. The route appeared to be feasible then.    *    *    *
The Canadian Northern Railway
company itself believes in that route
If we believe its prospectus issued a
little over three weeks ago, viz., the
-Tth of October, lOU'J. This document
advertises the issue of ��840,000, i
pt r cenl perpetual consolidated deben-
ture stock at 93 per cent. The prospectus is issued by the C. N. R. brokers, Sperling & Co., Bond Court House
Walbrook K. C. Now, as may be readily understood, the Information sent
out as part of such nn Importnant document on the part of a linn of such
standing as Sperling & Co., must be
of the most thorough and accurate
nature. Accompanying the prospectus
and forming part of the information
is a map of the C. N. It, system in
Canada.
That map shows the route of the
C. N. R. from Edmonton through the
Yellowhead, down the North Thompson to a point just east of Kamloops,
where the Campbell river .empties
Into the Thompson, south of KamlooPs
to Hope.
This prospectus, mark you, is just
a little over three weeks out yet that
is the route indicated. Needless to
sny it does not show the Barkley
Sound brunch. Now the question is
what kind of a job have Dan Mann
and Bob Green framed up on pretty
Dick and gassy Bowser. It took all
the acumen of Roblin, Rogers, Sifton
to handle Mann and Mackenzie in
Manitoba and even then that province
got very much the worst of it. Sharp,
ened by their experience in Manitoba
and with Bob Green, their hired man
nnd Dick's boon companion, they make
an onslaught upon British Columbia's
Dick-bird and Big Noise Bowser, who
promptly commit themselves to one
route while the C. N. R. In London
i is issuing an important prospectus
which shows nn entirely different one.
It looks like a pair of political Innocents were being led Into some maze
from which they will emerge with
their pretty clothes badly soiled.���Saturday Sunset.
acio'is editor of the Colonist could not
mistake it
But the line is noi marked b id
Vancouver. It does not extend to
English Bluff, There is nol i i a
doiicil line to the bluff or upon any
part of Vancouver Island. Tin Is
nothing to indicate a ferry conm ini
the bluff with any port, known oi unknown, upon  Vancouver Islan .
The plan in question was filed on
September 11, 1908, and approvi d by
the Minister January 18, 1909. The
company cannot change its line more
than one mile form the location as
marked except with the approval of
the department. The department has
not been asked to approve any change.
Taken in conjunction with the lack
of knowledge Mr. Mann has displayed in regard to the geography of Vancouver Island, does not the above
prove absolutely that when the Canadian Northern magnate eau,a here
he had no intention of building a yard
of railway on the Island, that he has
not changed his views, and thai the
Island part of the deal is merely a
fake for the purpose of capturing the
votes of the unthinking portion of the
electorate?���Victoria Times.

the race to locate a line between

is due to the fact that its survej is
only of a preliminary chariot. , as
compared with the final location survey being made by its rival, and also

EXCERPTS FROM RECENT SPEECH
OE SIR CHAS. HIBHERT4TUPPER
On the "Wild and Unconsidered" Policy of a Part
of the Conservative Government.
'I am here as a Conservative," Sir
Hlbberl declared at the outset.     "Mr.
McBride proposes to blacken the eyes
of   any Conservative    who dares to
disapprove    of     liis     railway   policy,
while 1 am a Conservative who, like
his colleagues,    .Messrs.     Tatlow  and
Fulton, is compelled to disagree with
thai  policy.      The Premier has been
kind    enough    to    say    the province
would  still  l.e  here  affr  my  departure.      My    compliments  to  Mr.   .McBride'.      When   he  is  defeated  a  few
days   hence   I   feel   confident   British
Columhia    will    prosper    more than
ever.      lie is asking us to agree to a
guarantee, but  I for one do not want
to izo on the note.     I can not support
this radical and extraordinary departure  of  a so-called Conservative  government.       I   have   been   brought   up
to appreciate the advantages of party
loyalty,  but   loyalty    ceases  when  it
says  black   is  white.      I  hesitate,  I
say, when 1 know the color is green.
"Down to October last when the fatal  railway contract  was signed  the
government adhered to its policy and
I could give    them    my support.      I
have not left Mr. -McBride or Mr. Taylor.      The Premier,  Mr. Bowser and
the small ends    have    gone back on
their records and they did it  In the
twinkling  of  an  eye,"  continued   Sir
Hibbert with rising warmth.     "If the
Premier had gone to the country without  a  railway  policy  he  would  have
scored a victory.     Why was this extraordinary  program  submitted  without  giving the people o fBritish Columbia  reasonable    time to consider
its provisions?      It  is patent   that it
was sprung in violation of every constitutional     principle.      Why.   I  ask,
was tin   poiicj  of the Roblin governmenl In Manitoba nol adopti d?     Belie, sl jni d an agi i   .. ���;.'  ���    i.
same railway  he calle 1 a  conference
of busini ss men and women of both
pai th     to conBl     'a  i'v ter fraui   I
with such momentous coasequenci s.
"This deal is bold and monstrous,
and is useless to any one outside the
Mann and Mackenzie crowd. If
knocks the bottom out of the cry for
better terms. it stultifies the Conservative leader at Ottawa. Condi-
lions existent have, it is admitted,
made i.s the most heavily taxed people In the world. Shaping their policy until October with that conviction,
is it not bewildering to hear from the
lips of the same men who appealed to
Borden to ask the people to guarantee
the construction of trunk lines. is
there a man, woman or child who will
admit that the two policies are consistent? Is it not frenzied finance;
is it not beyond the vagaries of the
wildest hoomster? I say it ig childish unparalleled, and is opposed to
all they have been preaching for the
past three or four years."
Then Sir Hibbert made a reference
to the resignations of Messrs. Tatlow and Fulton. "Surely they are
bound to break silence before this
campaign is over. No doubt it would
hurt their colleagues to tell the truth,
It can not be that some malign or
Blnlster motive impelled them to quit
rather than serve under a dishonorable government. As long as they
remain dumb the worse It will look
for the Premier." Nearly all the
speaker's references to Mr. McBride
and Mr. Bowser were scathing, denunciatory, ironical or facetious.
"Is it a contract document or agreement?" asked Sir Charles with irony
before mercilessly criticising the
agreement not only for its conditions
and the government for letting it see
the light 11 momentous days after it
had been negotiated.
"Mann ami Mackenzie are not infants. They know a good deal more
about the railway game than the Premier and Mr. Bowser. They played
with them in a way that a man would
be ashamed to act toward little children," added Sir Hibbert amidst another noisy outburst from the audience.
We have the word of the Premier
that this monstrous memorandum
which was published on October 30
is the core of the contract. In Toronto Mr. Mann said lt was the text
of this contract, and now we have Mr.
Bowser asserting that the document
In any event ls not binding.   It com
mits us to an extraordinary liability."
When Sir Hibbert contrasted it
with the terms secured by Premier
KSblin of .Manitoba, in negotiating an
agreement with the same railway
company. "There is no provision
here against Mackenzie <v Mann selling out their rights to another railway," continued the speaker, as he
wanned ��ip to his task.
"There is no provision for reduction of rates, nor for the control of
rates; third, there is no provision for
a sinking fund; fourth, no forfeit was
mentioned and no provision was made
for construction to begin from this
end or the line. And seventhly, there
ls no provision that Mackenzie nnd
Mann, who control at least Sa per
cent, of the stock of the Canadian
Northern, should hypothecate their
stock with the government aa a guarantee of good faith. In regard to
liis statement that no sinking fund
was provided, Sir Charles pointed out
that where it is intended that the
bonds of railway are to be paid off, a
sinking funds was essential, otherwise the railway continued to inevst
its profits in extensions, terminals,
etc., and no cash was available to pay
off the bonds when their term expired."
"I submit that there is no necessity
for this province to aid a third or
fourth transcontinental line," continued the speaker. "If any really existed it would be a matter for the federal parliament to consider and the
party could hold Mr. Borden responsible for his attitude. If a request
for a bond guarantee were made at
Ottawa, it would be laughed down by
both sides. These roads are breaking their necks to come, and there is
no :: ed to give them more than de-
cent treatment Mr. .McBride Justified the Kaien island deal because he
was dealing with a northern road,
that would open up a new territory,
but said he would make the roads
farther south pay through the mountains. I repeat that the deal with
the Canadian Northern is a wild,
hasty and unconsidered one, and
there was never a greater issue before the people of this province.
"In .Manitoba a railway bond guarantee was different, for there branch
lines opened up a crowded region
needing railway facilities, and the
government had retained the control
of rates. The late Hon. Mr. Agnew,
treasurer of Manitoba, referring to
the former deal, reviewed what his
government had wrung from ths railways. Out in Britisli Columbia the
situation is reversed."
Sir Hibbert saw no possibility of
the proposed line proving advantage-
eous from a competitive standpoint.
Operating costs were high, and the
railway commission would not pare
down the rate too unduly. A blue-
book brought down in parliament at
Ottawa the other day showed that the
Canadian Northern nad a mileage of
3100 miles, without a mile through a
mountainous country, exacted rates
averaging 10 per cent, higher than
those of the Canadian Pacilic. He
also explained that his attitude toward the government was that ol
many other members of the Conservative party.
"1 have taken this position," he
concluded, "after a lot of painful
thought. I would have liked to have
gone under the party flag in this battle. The party system is, after all,
tbe best system that can be devised
for the Dominion. I never faltered
in my allegiance until R. _���. Green
was guilty of malfeasance lu oflice In
May, lUOli, when I knew he did what
should have turned him out of society
of any decent man, and McBrlde kept
him ln his cabinet until November.
I flinched, und did not vote at all.
When tills recent monstrous proposition was sprung iu haste, showing
the brand of cowardice, then I concluded that party government was a
failure. I am now ready to work
with Liberals or Conservatives to secure a clean and honest government
in British Columbia."
There was an extraordinary outburst of cheering when Sir Hibbert
concluded an eloquent peroration of
the great destiny and possibilities of
the province.

Louis M. Goldstone Writes in Regard to Present Agitation���Citation From Francis Murphy, the Great

(By Louis M. Goldstone.)
The prohibition policy amounts to
Caesarlani. They believe in going
ahead, right or wrong. In the states
where laws have been passed prohibiting the 6ale of liquor, the entire
state nearly has been legislated into
crime, for tf It Is a crime to sell liquor
it is a crime to  buy it,  and  the ma-

having the Mme dou'bt, employed the
same method of arriving at a correct
opinion. Chiiliwack reverted. Theae
two instances ln Canada's most westerly province could be suppleen-ented
by scores of others throughout the
Dominion.
Nor is the tjvil confined to the mere
moral deterioration of the buyer and
seller of liquor In those districts where .
such traffic is prohibited. In many
Instances the closing of thee licensed
houses has been direpctly followed by
