PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY,  JANUARY 5,  1906. '$2 a Year, in Advance
Brief Outline of  Platform for
Coming Political Battle to
the Point.
In response to a request for an outline
of the lines he would pursue in conducting his campaign against the McBride
Goverment, Liberal Leader J. A. Macdonald made  the  following statement:
"Let me say in a few words now what
I shall enlarge upon later: The Government's policy is its record. That record spells high taxes; neglect of roads
and trails; a monstrous school act; neglect
to protect our forests; neglect to compile
and furnish information about lands in
aid of settlement; broken promises to deal
with the railway situation after proclaiming necessity foraction; back door methods of dealing with public assets; a barefaced attempt on ihe Premier',s part to
make better term1-■ u party issue and election cry iii face of what took place in the
h^rtise; subserviency to a railway corporation evidence'd by unsuccessful attempt to
give a million and a half iu cash, and actual grant of 800,000 acres of public lands,
and refusal to make it pay its taxes.
"Our policy is defined by our stand on
the measures brought before the house,
plus our aims regarding other measures
which cannot be introduced by an opposition, but only bv the Government,
which are: The creation ofa department
of labor and immigration, subjects too
important to be left as at present without
shape or provincial guidance,to guard us
against undesirable immigrants.
'Full inquiry into water records and
irrigation and while protecting prior
rights providing for a wider distribution
of water available for irrigation. . An
adequate system of forest protection;
surveys of crown lands available for settlement, and where practicable, parcelling,
them into small holdings as part of immigration policy; repeal of school act and
return to a system of state education;
revision of the terms of placer and dredging leases and lessening the danger of
inadvertent forfeiture.
/" No alliance with those revolutionists
ho would destroy our system of government and haul down our flag, but on
the contrary co-operation with that great
body of labor which would reform abuses
in a constitutional way."
A Big Success Financially and
Otherwise -- Good Time '
for All.
The first annual ball under the auspices of the Princeton Volunteer Fire
Brigade was held in the Court House on
the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 2, and
proved to be one of the most successfu]
affairs of the kind ever held in Princeton,
both from the point of attendance and
excellent management. The hall was ar-
tically and tastefully, decorated with
flags, bunting and Chinese lanterns, and
the floor was splendid ; also the music.
Refreshments were served throughout
the evening. Owing to the unfavorable
condition of the weather there was not
as large an attendance from outside
points as there otherwise would have
teen, nevertheless the hall was comfort-'
ably filled, and could not have accommodated a much larger crowd. Dancing
was continued into the small hours of
the morning.
i The Fire Brigade are well pleased with
the financial result of the affair and the
treasury will be handsomely enriched.

Roughly estimated, two and a quarter
milion dollars in excess of the returns
shown by last year's records will be realized from the total output of the mines
of British Clumbia this year. This statement was made recently by Provincial
Mineralogist Robertson.
Mr. Robertson stated that there was
a much improved condition evident
throughout all the mining camps. The
rise in the price had wrought a change
for the better. The majority of the properties were operating to their fullest capacity. Had it not been for the setback
received owing to the recent strike at Fernie there was little doubt that the actual
total output for 1906 would have been
above that of the previous year. He could
not make this assertion, as a definite
statement of fact because the figure", had
not yet been received. But it was his
personal opinion that the output would
by no means show a decrease despite the
handicap mentioned, and that it might
prove to have advanced.

Now that  the-' general   elections
have been   officiajjy-'&titi'ounced  ,to
take place, the date set   being Feb.
2nd, from now on McBride, and his
followers  will   be,, busy trying   to
pull the wool over: the eyes - of the
electors in   an   endeavor ' to   blind
thera to.the facts in'*regard   to   tbie
many scandalous  transactions   participated iri -by "the first Conservative Government Brjtish  Columbia
ever hay?^:ft'aiis'actiQns: that   have
been the.;mean.s of transferring miU
lions of dollars worth of  land   from
the Province to private corporations
and boodliiig individuals, nude and
female, simply for the  asking.    In
other words, McBride and his Gov-    .,^m^mmm
ernment have'robbed the ratepayers  entertain
of British Columbia to   that extent.
, by taking what   belonged- to  thern
and handing it over   to speculative
concerns,, who , reap   the  benefits.
If the trustees-of   a   private   estate
were  to   parcel    off   the   property
they held in   trust   and   scatter   it
among, their friends,   thereby robbing those  whom    they   were   appointed to protect, the only logical
conclusion is   that   they would   be
dismissed from office forthwith, and
furthermore  they would be held accountable for their misdeeds and be
forced to   pay the   penalty the)' so
richly deserved.    The Government
stands as trustees for the people and
when they   abuse   that confidence,
as the McBride   Government   have
done, they should be kicked   out of
office without delay.
Everyone is or should be familiar
with the history of the Kaien Island
scandal, when Cabinet secrets were
divulged tp the Mrs. Jimmy Anderson gang, which profited handsomely by the .information wrongfully
obtained. That gigantic give-away
of 800,000 acres of choice coal and
mineral lands in   the   Kootenays to
bia's case, for better terms, from ti e
Dominion, at the interprovincial
conference held at Ottawa, in October last. This conference was called for the purpose of affording an
opportunity to the Provincial Premiers to meet together in conference and discuss with the Federal
Government the financial subsidies
to the different Provinces.
During the last   session   of   the
Local Legislature J. A. Macdonald,
leader of the Opposition, introduced
a    resolution   touching   on    better
terms, pointing out   that   we were
entitled to   more   consideration   in
the way of increased subsidies, and
the resolution received the unanimous support of the   House.    When
the  interprovincial   conference was
arranged,    Premier     McBride     of
course   attended.      Had   he   been
anxious to make the  most   of. the
opportunity    he     certainly   would,
have invited Mr. Macdonald to 'accompany him   and   give support to
his claims.    But there was   a   method in his madness, as subsequent
events have shown.    He, therefore,
goes alone, submits the   Province's
case, with the stipulation that it be
referred  to  arbitration.    This   tbe
conference unanimously declined to
Premiers J. P. Whitney
the way of subsidy and I
for the maintenance of government. |
The   British    Columbia     proposa
comes entirely within the chief pur
pose of   this   Conference.    If   this
Conference, after hearing  Mr.   McBride's arguments in support of his
contention,   reach   the   conclusion
that   an   arbitration    should   take
place,   through   a   commission, for
the purpose   of   dealing with   the
claim   of   British   Columbia,   that
would present the.matter in a   new
light, and. while I am not prepared
to express any final opinion, I   can
say at once  that   any such   recommendation   from    the     Conference
would have great weight  with    us,
and we'should feel bound to give it
further consideration."
It will readily be  seen   from  the
above that Premier  Laurier was  in
no wa)' responsible for. the turning
down of McBride's arbitration   proposition, but on the  other hand he
was only too willing  to  consider it
should the   Conference   so   recommend. The securing of better terms
is  a question   entirely apart   from
party politics, and it   only serves to
show the despicable tactics resorted
to by this  most peculiar   combination—"the   first    Conservative-Socialist Government British   Columbia ever had'"
(Ontario) and R. P.  Roblin (Mani
toba) two of the foremost Conservatives in the  Dominion, were   members of the conference.    When McBride's   arbitration    proposa!   was
turned down   (as he knew it would
be) he got in his previously intended grand   stand   play and   stalked
out of the conference.    He  returns
to his native soil with the necessary
election cry that he was   in   search
of, and tries to make the  people   of
British Columbia   believe   he   had
been.ill treated by Premier Laurier
and his, colleagues  because he was
a Conservative.    And   his-  faithful
followers have taken up the cry.
.   To show the falsity of this assertion, we quote Sir Wilfrie's address
tothe Conference   touching British
Columbia's case: ^%-
*'I have given careful consideration to the memorial of . British
Columbia's Government, and particularly to the request that a com
mission be appointed for the purpose of inquiring into the financial
relations between the Dominion and
the Province. I have been unable
to reach the conclusion that the appointment of such a' commission
-1 would be the best way of dealing
the C. P. R., estimated worth   with a question   of   this   kind.    I
in the npiorhhnrhr*!-,/! *~.t#~~  -
in the neighborhood of $20,000,000,
we made extensive note of in our
last issue.
These are only a sample of the
many instances of gross mismanagement by this Conservative-Socialist
combination, but they give an idea
of bow the people's heritage has
been ruthlessly thrown awav     The
fear that.such  a course would    not
lead to the harmonious   settlement
of the grants  to   Provinces   which
all should desire   to   bring   about. 1
However, I regard   the' matter   at 1
present more as one for the opinion |
of   the   Conference   than   for   the
judgment of the Dominion Government.    You have assembled for tW

The Star would like to know the
reason why there will be no voters'
lists obtainable, at least by the   opponents of   the  Government,- until
within a few days  of   the election?
On the face of it it looks as though
some underhand  work   was   being
done.    The.lists for this district are
being turned out from  the office   of
the Hedley Gazette, and ' owing   fo
limited number of names contained
therein  it   should   not take   many
days to  complete  the  work.    The
public have a right   to   know   the
reason of this strange action on the
part of the  Government.    If there
was not some   ulterior   motive   in
withholding      them    they     ought
to be ready for distribution   at least
a   fortnight   before   the   elections.
It is just another sample of the way
in which the   McBride garig   have
of doing business, when it cornes to
being fair  and   square  and . above
rjoard.    Doctoring  up   voters'  lists
is an old Conservative game, and it
is also a very serious one.

velopment purposes could   be  conveyed

20-Mile Lake, where a sled road could be
constructed at a small   cost.    There were
a lit'le over two miles of road built  at   a
cost of over #3,000 a mile, and the people
of this town were expecting to be able to
