time of your departure, to express our
appreciation of you and your services
with us. In your work you have been
kind, patient, and faithful, and your
moral influence among us has been one
for us to emulate. Our loss will be
some others' gain.
We can give expression neither to
our regret at the loss we sustain, nor to
the appreciation we have for you.
Though a gift of intrinsic value cannot be a measure of our feelings, yet
we ask you !o accept tins token as a
slight mark of our esteem, hoping that
your remembrance of us will be of the
pleasantest, as ours will be of you.
We unite in wishing you a happy and
prosperous life for the future.

WHAT THE CENT BELT THINKS
OF THE MAN WHO PLAYS
GOAL FOR SANDON.
(From the Gait Reformer.)
There has appeared in the Brantford
hockey firmament a star   of considerable brightness.    His certificate   calls
for Hoggan, Huggan,   or   some such
name.    Whether he's Huggin,  Mug-
gin, Mulligan, or what not,   he's certainly   a   beautiful goal-tender.   That
fact was self-evident in the  Galt-Brant-
for game here last week.    He's scarcely the equal of the geat "Dutchy" Morrison, but whoever christens  Hoggan,
Huggin, etc.,  a   dub,   is   making the
mistake of his life.     Misther Hoggan,
in his cage, is a bird and a  high-flyer,
one of the soarers   whom   the   hockey
hards sing about.    Where   did  Brantford   snare   him ?     Well,   that's   the
mystery.    He loomed  up on the horizon in the secon J game with Paris and
then again in Gait;  b��t does not seem
to have materialized   when   the  season
opened.     At   least   neither   Gait   nor
Paris remembers him  in   the first contests.    A  wireless despatch   says that
this pearl of great  price ambled along
one day from  British   Columbia, a sort
gold nuggit tourist.    Brantford gathered him in, regretting   that he   had not
arrived before, tho il  is  questionable if
he could have turned   the   stale.     Of
course there may   be   nothing   in   the
romantic legend of how   Hoggan happened.    Like Topsy, he may have "jes'
growed" in   Brantford   without   anybody's knowledge.     Strange things do
happen  in   great  cities.     Anyway, he
glistens like a genuine gem.
return and got heart failure. Anyway,
the local sports "cursed them by candle,

who tries to claim hereafter that Nelson is^not a cheap town will have a
hard time proving it to the Sandon

The Sandon hockey boys have some
things to say about the Nelson team
that are hardly fit for publication. The
thing is like this : The Sandon team
went over to Nelson and played a game
a couple of weeks ago, putting up a
good, clean contest and giving everybody a run for their money. Then arrangements were made for return game
After it was too late to properly advertise the game, Nelson wrote that they
would play here on Wednesday evening. Well, the boys kept the telegraph
wires hot for a while and rushed around
arranging an excursion from Kaslo and
warning New Denver, Silverton and
Slocan City about the game. By Tuesday noon they settled down, satisfied
that everyone knew all about it, and a
fat gate was expected. But on Tuesday evening Nelson wired that they
were not coming.
It was certainly disappointing. The
boys were out all the trouble and advertising and the Rink Company lost

port Martin and an advanced policy
outnumbered the Bodwell-Templeman
taction two to one.
As soon as they found themselves
in the minority, Bodwell and Templeman bolted. Then the dominant party
voted Templeman out of the chair,
voted the editors out of the hall, and
voted the Executive clear out of exist-
ance. After that they held a convention, drew up a platform, appointed a
leader and declared for party lines
strait.
touching  lines "So  here I am  out in
the snow.
The convention which met in Vancouver last  week   and   elected Joseph
Martin leader of the   Liberal party in
B. C, was called by Senator Templeman, E. V. Bodwell and others for the
purpose   of  discrediting  Martin   and
promoting the grafter grade of Liberalism which  outcrops so prominently in
the precincts   of Victoria.     The   plot
was laid in   up-to-date Victoria  style.
The Executive committee,   in  calling
the convention, invited Liberal editors,
such as the C. P. R. editor of the Vancouver Province, and the Mackenzie &
Mann editor   of  the   World, and the
Crow's Nest  Coal   Company editor of
the Nelson Miner, and the Mine Owners' Association editor of the Kootenaian, and the  V. V. & E. editor of the
Victoria Post, and the Chinese   Commission editor of the Kamloops Sentinel���all the  newspaper mercenaries of
the province were to  be there.    These
editors did not  need   to  be elected by
any Liberal  association.      They were
simply invited to  appear on   the scene
and .plunk their vote according to directions.    Then the   Executive invited itself to be present  in a body and lend
its machine   influence   to the furtherance of corporation   Liberalism.    And
finally, to guard  against  any  missed
holes, so to speak, the   executive  appointed itself a   credential  committee
with power to decide who of the men
that came as elected delegates from the
Liberal primaries thruout the province
"should be admitted.
Taking it all around, it was pretty
work and the Victoria gang should
have been able to get away with the
convention and steal the Liberal party
to operate it in their own interest as a
going concern. Properly speaking,
however, Victoria���in sentiment at
least���is not a part of British Columbia, and never was in touch with the
Interior, altho the Interior had been
touched pretty hard occasionally by
the Victoria gang. So in fixing up
the convention the Executive underestimated the number of delegates who

WHEN a man gets beat at his own
game he usually feels  sore.    The bigger the cinche,   the   bigger   the   sore
spot.    Bodwell certainly feels sore over
the Vancouver convention and he does
not overlook any opportunities to demonstrate it.    To him the defeat is serious.    He had slated himself to run on
the V. V. & E.   ticket in   Victoria and
rumor said that he  was to get a $50,-
000 cut out of the bonus if he managed
to jam   it   thru   the   legislature.    In
order to cinch his candidature he planned to capture the convention and have
himself  duly   nominated   as   Liberal
leader.    But that  is all   off  now and
Bodwell's hopes   have gone ojimmer-
ing.    Templeman got off a little better
than Bodwell.    Being  a  senator, and
therefore representing only himself, he
suffers no  loss   of   political   support.
As a matter of fact  he  quit  winner to
the extent of a   portfolio.      The  play
came up like this : When the convention ousted him and he  found   himself
unhorsed, the brave Templeman sprinted to the nearest  telegraph   office and
wirad to Laurier for a cabinet position,
representing   that   it   would   act as a
boost from headquarters  and help him
to   make   a   stand-off  with    Martin.
When the Ottawa   machine   gets   to
understand  that  Templeman   was already discredited when   he touched the
wire there   will be  a roar   heard from
the neighborhood  of Parliament Hill
much angrier than the hoarse boom of
the Chaudier.
Three things must be done in
British Columbia. The government
must build, own, equip and operate a
railway from the Coast to the Kootenay. The government must build ami
operate a refinery for the treatment of
gold, silver, copper and lead matte on
the Pacific coast at the tide-water terminus of the Coast to Kootenav railroad. The government must shut off
the pirates who are grabbing the coal,
timber and agricultural land of Southern British Columbia and preserve
these valuable resources for the encouragement of legitimate industry.
Mackenzie & Mann have completed the Winnipeg-Lake Superior
section of their line which the governments gave them lhe money to build
and have connected with the Manitoba
sections of the N. P. which Premier
Rob!in made them a present of. If
the people will kindly come forward
with money enuf to pay the cost of
construction they will proceed to build
up the Saskatchewan to Edmonton,
taking half the land as a guarantee of
good faith.

to protest against such outrageous
treatment.
"God reigns and the Republican
party still lives'' is the way Mark
Hanna broke the news to Bill McKinley. But the particular brand of harmony which prevailed in the Liberal
convention in Vancouver would seem
to indicate that God is not in politics
in B. C. just now.
It is up to Bodwell a/id Davis and

aimed to catch the "Yellow Martin"
and take him into camp. They stacked and rimmed and double shuffled and
dealt seconds and marked the cards,
but when the bad Indian from the Red
got up against their game he switched
the cut and the plant went wrong.
Now Joseph holds the layout and the
Victoria coppers are so buffaloed that
they have forgotten how to play.

immediately makes him a cabinet minister. Which proves once more thai

ADOPTED BV THE VANCOUVER
CONVENTION.
1. The immediate redistrihution of
constituencies of the province on a basis
of population, but allowing a smaller
unit of population ior the outlying
districts.
2. Government ownership, Dominion, Provincial and municipal, of public services of utilities is sound and
should be carried out in British Colum-
hia.
3. Should it he advisable at any time
to grant aid to a railway, such shall be
in cash and not in land and no bonus
of any kind shall be given without
definite and effective means heing taken
to safeguard the interests of the province in the management of the road,
control of freight and passengsr rates.
and provision made against such railway having any liability against it except actual cost.
4. Immediate construction of (he
Coast-Kootenay ; the Cariboo railway,
the extension of the Island railway ; a
road in the northern part of the Province from the Coast to the eastern
boundary with an extension lo the
norihern boundary ; the railway from
Vernon to Midway by the North Fork
of Kettle river ; with necessary hranch
lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcemsnt of the act now in
force compelling the scaling of logs by
government scalers.
6. That such legislation be passed
as will result in making the lands included in the various dyking areas
available for cultivation as quickly as
possible, and secure prompt payment of
assessments when due.
7. That the government should keep
in touch with the conditions in connection with mining, protecting said
industry against combines and trusts
if necessary for the purpose build and
operate smelters and refineries. No
radical change shall be made in the
mining laws without full notice to all
parties interested, giving full opportunity for discussion and criticism.
8. As the Province can only advance
by the settlement within its borders of
ihriftyand prosperous citizens, and as
Orientals never become citizens in any
proper sen��e of the word, we declare it
to be the duty of the government to discourage Oriental immigration by every
means within its,power, and we appeal
to our fellow Liberals thruout the
Dominion to aid us in our efforts to
protect ourselves against the ruinous
competition of men having a standard
of decency and comfort immensely below that of civilized people, and who
shirk every duty and law of citizenship
which the law will allow them to
escape.
9. The government should prevent
the waste and suffering caused by
strikes and lock-outs, and an earnest
effort ought to be made to provide some
means of preventing such strikes and
lockouts, and we approve the adoption
of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the province
stands in need of revision. Taxation
should bear upon privilege rather than
upon industry, and no addition should
be made to the debt of the province except for public works properly chargeable to capital.
11. The retaining of the resources of
the province as an asset fur the benefit
of the people, and taking effective
measures to prevent the alienation of
the public domain except to actual bona
fide business or industrial purposes,
putting an end to the practice of speculating in connection with the same.
12. The construction and maintenance of roads thruout the province to
aid in the development of the mining
and agricultural districts.

SAYS THAT EIGHT-HOUR  LAW
HAS RUINED THE SLOCAN.
(Vancouver World.)
Kootenay has sent out its best to the
Liberal convention. From . Kaslo
comes G. O. Buchanan and Mayor
Goodenough. The former is the proprietor of the big saw mills at the City
of Energy, while Mr. Goodenuogh was
until recently interested with Mr. Band
in the Kaslo brewery. There is no
stronger Liberal in the country than
Mr. Buchanan, and no man with a
better grasp of affairs as they effect the
Kootenay. He was seen by a World
man yesterday and talked interestingly
���Ibout matters affecting the part of the
country where he lives.    Said he:
"The ore  production has  not fallen
>flfso much  as it might,   but it is from
[developed    mines.      All    development
'work is at an  end.    There  are  fewer
men at work than there has been before
for some years.    There is no prospect-
'*'? ing and no development work going on.
1 The towns are gradually  loseing population."
"What should be done to remedy
that state of affairs ? " he was asked.
"That is a matter that is going to
come up at the convention This state
of affairs has been going on ever since
the eight-hour law was passed, for
good and sufficient reasons. The
effects of the eight-hour law will be a
subject for consideration at the convention."
"How are things in Kaslo?"
"A great many Kaslo people have
beeen working on the Kootenay and
Arrowhead railway, and there is a good
deal of Kaslo money tied up in the
new work pending its completion, the
contractors in the meantime not being
able to get estimates to pay up. Grading will be finished in six weeks with a
tpossibility of a settlement being arrived
at."
"We felt the  cold snap.    We  came
iru  thirty miles  of ice on  the  Arrow
ikes.    The  steamer  shoved  a  barge
���lead  breaking a track thru  the solid
vhite ice, which  came right up to the
[guards on each side."
The Chinese court returned to Pekin
at its leisure and calmly proceeded to
dig up some millions of yens they had
planted when the advance of the foreign devils made it inconvenient to remain in the capital. Some of the
Allies' generals, who overlooked the
cache, should now be court martialed
for conduct unbecoming of a soldier.���

mcCnne's Great Schemes.
The Peruvian government has granted to Alfrek McCune and James Hag-
gin, both Americans, permission to
study for one year the plans of a concessions for a railroad from Chancay,
Department of Lima, or Huacho, on
the bay of that name, to Cerro de Pasco, in the department ofjunin. Upon
the outcome of an investigation into
the feasibility of a railroad in the Department of Lima, Peru, concession
for which the Peruvian government
has just granted A. W. McCune and
James Haggin, depends the expenditure of several millions of American
capital in mining and railroad development in that South American country.
A. W. McCune owns a controlling interest in the Salt Lake street railway
system and is heavily interested in Utah
and British Columbia mining properties. It is stated that Mr, McCune,
James Haggin, and a number of New
capitalists have secured control of rich
silver properties in Peru ' which for
over 200 years have been worked by
the natives, the ore being packed on
the backs of men. It is the intention
to build a railway from these properties
to the seaboard, erect smelters and
make other improvements, costing several millions.���Nelson Tribune.
