The first  shot   in    the political

NOTES AND  COMMENTS.
At Nanaimo on Sunday night
last Mr. Hawthornthwaite defended
the Kaien Island transaction and
the C. and W. grab. This defence
is in the face of Mr. Green's efface-
ment because of his connection with
the Kaien Island deal. For once
Mr. Hawthornthwaite is not in accord with his Premier and leader.
—World.        I
Bob Green died of political gangrene, the disease which is now
gnawing away at the remnant of
the McBcBride administration. Had
Green been put in quarantine a
year ago some hope of the McBride
administration might have been entertained, but now an ignominious
jro'mb awaits them on Feb. 2nd.
Alas! poor Green, a bleedling
martyr for the great god of graft
and a warning to all political bood-
lers.
Speaking in Vaucouver, on the
evening of Jan. 9th, Mr. Mclnnis
referred to the Conservative rumor
that he was working for the leadership of the Liberals, and in no uncertain manner dispelled that campaign lie. He said: ''These gentlemen (the Conservatives) express
grave fears of a conflict between
Mr. Macdonald and myself. I can
assure them and all Liberals as
well that there is no such conflict.
I am Mr. Macdonald's lieutenant.
I am proud to work under his directions and I will be proud to become a Cabinet Minister under
him." Continuing, Mr. Mclnnis
said: "The Tories wonder why I
quit a $12,000 job to accept a $4,800
one. I wonder why Bob Green resigned a $4,800 position to accept—
nothing. Stranger than ever—
where is Wilson. He was a Cabinet Minister. He is now away to
the wilds of Cariboo to avoid questions as to why he resigned. Let
him keep the secret. After February 2nd it won't make any difference to anyone." And: •'McBride
never intended to appeal to the
country. I know that he had actually sent out notices to convene
che House to some of the members
two days   before   the   inexplicable
The Victoria Times, speaking  of
Mr. J. A. Macdonald, Liberal leader, says:    "Those  who  have   had
the privilege of hearing   Mr.   Macdonald on the floor of the  Legislature will not dispute the statement
that as a debater he ranks as  the
peer of any public man   who   has
ever occupied a seat in the  House.
It is true the leader of the Opposition is "not an orator  as  McBride
is"—be does not rant and ramp and
roar and  smite   his   desk   in   the
"mock heroics of declamation."   In
style he is calm, cool, logical, precise and convincing.   What hesays
is   not   forgotten  immediately the
sound of the words dies  away.    It
stays with the auditor and  by the
very force of its reasoning convinces
him of the sincerity of the speaker
and the soundness of  the cause he
advocates.    Mr.  Macdonald wields
a very keen weapon, and  to those
who revel in the  merciless   dissection of an opponent and a complete
exposure of his case he furnishes a
feast of   the  highest political satisfaction."

"I count on six wins at least,"
replied Mr. Macdonald, in an inter:
view at the coast recently, "to be
recorded from the Interior. Our
organization is in excellent shape,
and reports of a most encouraging
nature are coming in constantly.
We shall gain eight, if. not more,
seats in the coming contest."
Elsewhere we publish a letter
from Geo. E. Winkler, Socialist
candidate in this riding. Mr.
Winkler says he is opposed to subsidies in any form, and condemns
Hawthornthwaite, the Socialist
leader, for supporting the give-away
of 800.000 acres of land to the C. R.
R. Further than that, he does not
acknowledge Hawthornthwaite as
his leader and is apparently a party
all by himself. Does Mr. Winkler
also condemn the Kaien Island deal
and ihe exemption from taxation
of large tracts of land owned by
pets of the Government? Not
doubt he does. The stand taken
on these important questions by
Mr. Winkler is exactly that of the
Liberals, and there would appear to
be little excuse for this gentleman
being in the field at all.

'The McBride Government has never
initiated a single progtessive measure,
and the recent lengthy written appeal of
the Premier for support is very barren
in this respect. The length of the plat
form given above, most of whose planks
will I believe appeal strongly to most
electors, indicates the opportunity the
Government has had to pass reform nit-a-
ures and proves its sluggish incapacity in
that direction.
I am in entire accord with the terse and
progressive platform enunciated by the
Liberal leader, Mr. j A. Macdonald, who
has my hearty support. He is an able,
energetic man, whose private and public
record is without a stain. I honestly believe that when he becomes Premier   he
will give the Province an honest, capable,.
sane and progressive Government. The
suggestion that the Liberals desire to
change the leadership is foundationless.
Yours faithfully,
SMITH CURTIS.
