Meeting.   Short Address at
Hon. Richard McBride and
Hon.W.J. Bowser passed through
from Keremeos last Saturday en
I route to points up the lake. It
| had been their intention to address a public meeting here at
noon, but a breakdown in the
automobile that conveyed them
occasioned a delay of several
hours, and, as a consequence, the
meeting had to be cancelled.
However, in reply to the sub-
ioined address read by a deputation from the Conservative Association, who met the party at the
steamer, the Premier spoke for
a few minutes emphasizing the
important bearing railway construction would have upon Penticton and assuring his hearers
thai he saw no reason why construction should not start at this
Tlie address had been read on
the previous evening to Hon.
Price Ellison, who arrived here
to await the arrival of the
Premier and Attorney General.
Mr. Ellison promised to use his
influence to have a reservation
made of the lands at the heads
of the two creeks from which
this place derives its water supply, also to have a fire warden
stationed at this end of the lake.
The address presented by the
Conservative Association read as
To the Hon. Richard McBride,
Premier, the Hon. W. J. Bowser,
Attorney General, and the Hon.
Price Ellison, Minister of Lands,
of the Province of British Columbia.

of Penticton extend greetings
and a hearty welcome. To the

among ours taking his share of
the burden of individual development of this district, we add the
welcome naturally felt for one's

express our appreciation of the
wise and honest policy which has

your Government on November

constituencies in British Columbia���the Okanagan and Similkameen- Penticton has had the
honor of being represented by
two members, both Conservatives. These gentlemen, the

Lands), and Mr. L. W. Shatford,
ol* Similkameen, are again going
t) Victoria to represent us, and

competent to look after our affairs, we submit the Okanagan

voters on the list after revision,

lency, you must admit, compared
vvith other rural constituencies,

to which we are justly entitled.
This, in our opinion might have
been remedied before this election.

you propose submitting to the
Legislative Assembly for ratification an agreement providing
for the construction of a railroad
from Midway to Nicola via this

Government Candidates Discuss j Opposition Side of Case Present-
Political Issues.   The Rev.      i    ed by f. R. E. DeHart and
Allen Speaks. K. C. Macdonald.
Address to Electors.
For over two hours on Wednesday evening a large audience
of Penticton electors listened
with interest to the discussion of
the political issues of the day by
L. W. Shatford, candidate for
the Similkameen, and Hon. Price
Ellison, candidate for the Okanagan.
The chair was taken by Dr. R.
B. White, who after a short introductory speech, invited Rev.
VV. J. Allen to the platform to
speak on the local option question. Mr. Allen spoke about
fifteen minutes and in a very
masterly manner laid the plebiscite proposition before the voters
and appealed to them to support
the enactment of a local option
law for the province.
Mr. Shatford, next being called
upon, spoke for three-fourths of
an hour, holding the wrapped attention of the audience in one of
the finest, clearest and most convincing political addresses it has
been the privilege of a Penticton
audience to listen to.
Going backward a number of
years, he reviewed the very unstable condition of affairs before
party government was introduced
by premier McBride. The province was $11,000,000 in debt,
there was an outstanding liability of $820,000 over the assets,
while men were withdrawing
their capital from the country.
The first work of the Government had been to retrench on
one, hand and increase th.��
revenue on the other. They had
passed a new assessment act, by
which the annual deficit had
been turned to a surplus. Two
million dollars of the debt had
been paid while four million dollars were now on deposit to the
credit of the province, practically reducing the debt to five
millions. Confidence in the
province had been restored and
it was now reaping the benefit
by the rapid settlement and development of the country. The
annual revenue of the province
was now over seven million
dollars. The revenue had in fact
grown so large that the Government expected to be able to lower
taxation and abolish the personal
property tax altogether. Coal
lands had been sold at prices
fixed by law and a reserve had
been placed on timber lands to
prevent their falling into the
hands of speculators.
The revenue derived from the
Kaien Island reservation was
fully dealt with as was the new
legislation brought about by the
present administration. Tho
questions now before the government were 'better terms,' 'fisheries' rights,' and 'Indian reserves.' These could safely be
left for settlement to the McBride government.
Mr. Ellison was the last speaker, addressing the meeting on
the government's railway policy
and other topics. A question
being asked from the audience
as to whether he and Mr. Shatford would use their influence to
have a clause inserted in the
Kettle Valley Railway agreement
providing for a minimum mileage of construction each year,
Mr. Ellison replied that he would
do anything in his power to
hasten the construction of the
Mr. Shatford rose to state that
he had received the assurance
from Mr. McBride that a clause
would be inserted in the contract
providing for a minimum mileage
of construction. The meeting
then adjourned with three cheers
for each of the speakers.
A very representative and exceedingly attentive audience
greeted Mr. F. R. E. DeHart,
i Liberal candidate for the Okanagan. and K. C. Macdonald. of
I Vernon, at a public meeting held
i Monday evening. Mr. E. W.
Mutch occupied the chair.
Prior to the political speeches,
Mr. Wanless, of Summerland,
and Rev. G. O. Fallis, of Penticton, gave short addresses in explanation of the local option plebiscite to be taken on the day of
the election, Mr. Wanless emphasizing the fact that nearly all
of the other provinces have, and
British Columbia should have,
local option laws, and Mr. Fallis
that the people of a community
should have the power of determining whether or not intoxicants should be sold.
Mr. DeHart was then introduced to the audience, and in a
short address clearly laid before
his hearers the attitude of himself and his party on the political
issues of the day. He said that
John Oliver, the leader of the
Liberal party, was in favor of
the Kettle Valley Railroad, but
he wanted it to cross the Hope
Mountains by a tunnel.
He gave Premier McBride a
measure of credit for the prosperity of the province, but, contrasting its growth with that of
the Northwest provinces under
Liberal rule, it had made a very
poor showing.
He was the,first choice of the
convention, and although he had
at first hesitated, he was glad he
had come out as a candidate as a
protest against the inadequate
representation possessed by the
Okanagan in the legislature. If
elected he would fight for at
least two members and he
thought that there should be
He was opposed to the poll tax,
and would work for its abolition.
The government lands should
be surveyed and given as free
homesteads to actual settlers, as
was the case in the Northwest.
If elected he would do all he
could for the fruit industry, and
the Okanagan Valley in particular.
Mr. K. C. Macdonald, of Vernon, then took the stand, speaking for an hour, and scoring the
government chiefly for its railway policy. This was no time
for Liberals to be on the fence.
The government was giving too
much to the Canadian Northern
in guaranteeing its bonds. The
road would come fo tho eoael
without tlie guarantee. The
government should have given
subsidies for the building of
branch lines and not for the
main line. The Canadian Northern was being paid for paralleling
the Canadian Pacific, and there
was no clause in the agreement
for the control of rates.
The Liberals were in absolute
accord with the Kettle Valley
Railway project, but the government should run a tunnel through
the Hope Divide and allow the
Canadian Northern, Groat Northern and Kettle Valley railways
to run through it. This would
give the southern portion of the
province direct communication
with the coast. The C. P. R.
would control the Kettle Valley
line, and this district would be
at the mercy of that company.
The Liberals were anxious to
have the railroads come, but they
wanted them to come on their
own resources. If it was not a
business proposition for the Canadian Northern to build across
the province, the government
should let it stay out.
To the electors of the Similkr.-
meen Electoral District:
For the third time I have tie
honor of being selected by the
Conservative party to represent
the Similkameen riding. I feel
deeply grateful for this evidence
of appreciation of my past services and of the confidence and
trust placed in me to carry on
the good work of building up
this portion of the country.
Though the Similkameen may
be considered, and justly so, one
of the favored districts of our
highly favored province, replete
with latent resources, the early
stages of the development of
these resources must necessarily
| be slow and occasionally disappointing. It is therefore to me
a source of gratification to look
back over the past six years and
note the great progress made in
our riding and to fool that I have
had the privilege of contributing
to its prosperity.
The inauguration of a broad
railway policy by the McBride
Government will command the
attention of the electorate, overshadowing all other questions.
I am convinced that such policy
will make for the more rapid
growth of the Province, causing
an influx of capital and population the results of which will bo
far reaching. In seeking your
support I feel that I may confidently appeal to my record of
past services to vouch for my
earnest desire to safeguard the
interests of my constituency in
the future.
I should much like to have nut
every elector personally before
election day, but the size of the
riding and the shortness of time
will not permit; however, I will
endeavor to meet as many as
possible, so that we may have
an opportunity of discussing
more fully the situation. In conclusion I would respectfully solicit your vote and influence,
pledging myself to do my utmost
for the welfare of the Similkr.-
meen riding.
Yours truly,
L. W. Shatford.

feel that, by the system at pres-1

begin within three rmnths after
ratification. We would strongly
urge the insertion of a clause
providing for the construction of
at least seventy-five miles each
year, believing this is necessary
j if work is to be prosecuted to the
extent desired continuously. We
would also ask that Penticton be
one of the points at which construction shall begin simultaneously.
Another matter of great importance to us locally is that of
having a reserve placed upon all
Government lands at the head
waters of the two creeks from
which we derive our water supply. The reasons for this are
obvious, and as the lands are of
practically no value, we feel, that
upon investigation, our request
will be acceded to. We would,
however, point out that at the
headwaters of Ellis Creek much
of the land is in the Columbia
Western grant, and we hope your
Government may, by purchase
or exchange, procure it so that
our water supply from all sources
may not be endangered in any
We would also respectfully
bring to your notice the inadequacy of the present system for
the protection of our forests from
fire, and it is vital to the prosperity of the dry belt that there
ba a permanent and abundant
supply of water, it is absolutely
necessary that the forests at the
headwaters of streams be preserved, our local protection would
be greatly contributed to by the
appointment of a Fire Warden or
Ranger for this end of the lake
early next spring.
We also take this opportunity
of endorsing the views of the
Honorable Price Ellison with regard to Government assistance
to irrigation systems. Immense
areas of land which when irrigated would be in the highest
class for fruit growing, are now
non-productive and uninhabited
because the cost of development
is in excess of the capital of the
local holders. The granting of
aid by the Government either by
the guaranteeing of bonds of
private companies under the
necessary safeguards or by Government construction as practiced
south of the International Boundary, would be of immeasurable
benefit not only to the districts
directly concerned but the province at large.
Another matter we would draw
your attention to is the necessity
of a thorough reorganization of
the Provincial Police Force; also
that a Provincial Constable be
stationed at Penticton, which is
the centre of a large and rapidly
increasing population, and in
view of the early construction of
the Kettle Valley Railway it is
extremely likely that an influx
of undesirable characters will
cross the Line and in this event
the presence of an officer will
give a sense of security to the
We would also ask that, in
view of a sitting of the County
Court being held regularly at
Penticton, that a Registrar be
appointed, as at present it is a
great inconvenience to send to
Fairview for legal processes.
Another matter we wish to
draw your attention to is the inadequate accommodation of the
present court house, and we
would ask that a much larger
one be built at an early date.
We trust our recommendations
mav receive your most careful
consideration, and with the wish
that you may be elected in the
constituencies   for   which   you
stand by large majorities,
We are,

"Hon'-t you think that Mr. Louden

"Oh. I hope so. Miss Tabor! If he

openly now. wiping her eyes wltb ber

Now that she bad begun site babbled
on with her story, at times Incoherent
ly. full of excuses made to herself
more than to Ariel, pitifully enileavoting to convince herself that tbe re

made was not hers. "Mr. Cory told

"I  don't   understand," said   Ariel.
