"ETERNAL VIGILANCE, PRICE OF VICTORY"
Central Liberal Association for Similkameen
Riding Formed at Fairview Under
Happy Conditions* m%
Excellent Speeches by the Liberal Leader and Greenwood's
Stalwart Member—Elections may Come as Thief
at Night—Tory Says Liberal Leader
is Too Honest.
m
The meeting held at Fairview on the
25th ult. for the purpose of organizing a
central Liberal association for Similkameen riding was well attended, delegates being present from the vario ■'.s portions of the district. Harmony characterized the entire proceedings With a
strong central Liberal organization the
local associations will be solidified and
invigorated for campaign work. The following officers were elected : Hon. President, J. A. Macdonald, K. C , M.P.P ;
President, J. M. Wright; 1st Vice-President, R. G. Sidley ; 2nd, L. H. Patten ;
3rd, Geo. Kirby ; Secretary Treasurer, J.
Love. A strong executive committee was
also appointed.
In the evening a public meeting was
held, at which splendid addresses were
delivered by the Literal leader and J. R.
Brown, M.P.P. for Greenwood. A large
number of ladies and gentlemen were
present. Finlay Fraser was chosen chairman, after which the following address
was read:
Loyal and True.
" We, tbe Liberal delegates duly appointed and convened at Fairview for the
purpose of perfecting Liberal organization in Similkameen riding give public
expression to our unwavering loyalty to
our chieftain, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, premier of Canada, and trmt that in spite of
the encroaching years he may yet be
spared a long term of service to his king
and country and that his illustrious
record as statesman may be still further
lengthened into that glorious twilight of
life to which an honorable and eminent
career has led.
" We also wish to announce our perfect
accord and affiliation with the great Lib
eral-Reform pa:ty of Canada, which has
done inestimable service in promoting
the widespread prosperity and contentment of the people ; also, ouf confidence
in the federal ministry to guide on to
future years, as in the past, the wont of
reformation which has so markedly
changed Conservative deficits into Liberal surpluses and abounding revenues.
' We express our full appreciation of
the labors of Duncan Ross, M.P., in pro
viding a telephone service in the Similkameen and for his valiant and successful
struggle to procure necessary legislation
for the V.,V. & E. to build, and other
lesser but important works throughout
Yale-Cariboo.
"Our unqualified expression|of approval
of the honorable and upright course pursued by Mr. Macdonald, leader of the
Liberal Reform party in the local legisla-
t-ire, is sincere.and hearty. His tenacity
of purpose in exposing corruption in the
Department of Lands and Works, and
his opposition to the misappropriation of
the people's heritage, the agricultural and
coal resources, has won for him the highest encomiums from the press and people
of this province. We congratulate him
on the ability with which he has conducted the destinies of the party in this
province. We express .gratification on
meeting him for the first time, which has
increased our confidence in him as leader
and tender him our thanks for his presence and helpful counsel in forming this
central association.
"We also welcome the Liberal representative for Greenwood, J. R. Brown."
Some Interesting Facts.
On rising, the member for Greenwood
expressed satisfaction at seeing the ladies
present and manifesting their interest in
the provincial political issues of the day.
Mr. Brown traced the origin of party
lines in provincial affairs and drew attention to the fact that the "first Conservative government B.C. ever bad" was not
a Conservative governmentbut a mixture
of Socialists and Conservatives—two
parties diametrically opposed in principles, yet forsaking them for selfish ends.
He told how the grafter had been helped
out at Victoria by giving away millions
of acres of valuable coal and agricultural
lands. The give-away of land to the B.
C. Southern railway, a C.P.R. line, was
touched upon and it was shown that although Premier McBride stated that the
railway company was selling those lands
on the same terms as the government yet
the company had disobeyed the order-in-
council fixing the terms of sale and were
doing as they pleased with the lands.    It
was also pointed out that Mr. Shatford,
Similkameen's representative, voted
against the resolution to make the C.P.R.
pay arrears of taxes and he voted for the
Columbia & Western land steal, the subsidy L r which road was long ago forfeited In closing bis remarks Mr. Brown
made a strong appeal to Liberals to be
ready for the battle that was coming and
leave no stone unturned to secure victory
for Liberal principles
The Next Premier.
J. A. Macdonald, Liberal leader, was
the next speaker. In his opening remarks he said he would have been glad
to have Mr. Shatford present to make
his defence, if he had any, but it was
understood he had been suddenly called
away to the coast. Mr. Macdonald dealt
at some length with the coa.ition of Conservatives and Socialists and showed how
ridiculous such a combination was. He
quoted the Socialist firebrand, Hawthorn-
thwaite, as saying that "he was prepared
to wade through a sea of blood" to gain
his ends and he would "haul down the
Union Jack on the legislative buildings
and hoist the Socialist red flag in stead."
Mr. Shatford was a supporter of this
Socialist-Conservative government. He
pointed out that had the McBride Haw-
thornthwaite administration gone after
the delinquent railway corporation and
compelled it to pay taxes due the province there would not have been any
nacessity for making loans at high rates
of interest, nor would there have been
occasion for increased taxation and a
burdensome Assessment Act. His action
in opposing the' Eight Hour bill introduced bv the member for Nanaimo was
clearly and satisfactorily defined.. He
showed that the passing' of such a measure at that time, when the mining industry was depressed and the price of metals
very low, would result in a strike and
permanent injury to mining in B.C.
He had at that time advocated the better
way of bringing mine and smelter owners and miners together and arranging
an amicable settlement of the trouble.
He personally visited the owners and
many employees and succeeded in bridging the breach until an Eight-Hour Act
was passed agreeable to all. Mr. Shatford did not vote for this Eight-Hour
measure but seized his bat and went into
the lobby when the vote was coming on.
Mr. Macdonald gave the history of the
Kaien island scandal and the corruption
in the Lands and Works department.
He asked all voters to read the minority
Bnd majority reports of the committee
appointed to investigate the Kaien land
deal and form their own conclusions.
He referred to Premier McBride's schoolboy tactics at the Ottawa conference and
his futile search for a grievance to aid
him in the next campaign. The speaker
closed with a forcible appeal to Liberals
to be ready for the  fray which must take

MARCH OFIRONSTEED
Fair   Nicola  Welcomes  First
Train—Progress Along
the V.,V.&E.
There is rejoicing in Nicola over the
arrival of the first train on the Spence's
Bridge, Nicola & Similkameen railway,
owned and operated by the C.P R. Yesterday at noon with gaily decorated locomotive and coaches the advent of the
long desired train was hailed by a large
crowd of spectators. It marks an epoch
in the history of the progress of the
ambitious town and district. Now, it
may be said to have thrown aside its
short clothes and donned the full garb of
manhood. Princeton extends hearty
congratulations to its pretty sister by the
lake.
Welch & Stewart, who have the contract for grading west of Keremeos state
that they are prepared to push work as
soon as steel is at Keremeos. Their construction outfits are waiting for transportation to that point.
The ballasting crew reached Molson
last week and the tracklaying outfit is
timed to be at Oroville on the 15th inst.
Regular train service will begin from
Molson on ist Novemher and from .Keremeos ist February.—Greenwood Times.
Scott's survey party arrived in Princeton Thursday from Hope mountains and
will be disbanded. Milliken's party is
about done on the Similkameen river
and will make revisions between Princeton and Keremeos afterwards.
A preliminary line for the V., V. & E.
is being run between Myncasterand Che-
saw.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
W. J. Henderson, of the Otter Flat
hotel ; C. DeBarro, of the Granite Creek
hotel and Hugh Campbell of the Ashnola hotel obtained transfer licenses this
week.
J. R. Campbell, of Campbell & Shier,
Hedley, has retired from the firm and left
for Vancouver. His many friends gave
him a heartv send-off and presentation of
meerschaum pipe.
Editor Kennedy left on Thursday to
meet his wife and family who will arrive
today.
Important matter, including a communication from Dr. Schon, has been unavoidably crowde * out of this issue.
Snow fell at Welldo this week covering the perennial flowers and choking the
soup spring. The benign rays of Sol
soon caused 'the beautiful' to vanish.
It is written : Thou shalt drink a little

quotations from some of the leading
Canadian   papers.      The   Toronto
Globe deals with   the   question   as
follows:    "In increasing the   Provincial subsidies the people of Canada put themselves  under   heavier
tribute to a  bad  system.    The   in
crease may have been in a political
sense inevitable, as was the  establishment of the system, at Confederation.    But a firmer stand by both
political parties would have led   to
the adjustment of   inequalities   by
levelling down instead of by levelling up, and the growth and expansion  of   the Dominion would have
caused the subsidies to shrink  into
proportionate     insignificence     in
stead       of     ^,—^
bad public influence.    Every dollar
the Dominion gives  to  the   Provinces it must take from  the   Provinces.    *    *    *    The positive and
must know that there was  no legal
claim involved, that there was   no
statute   or   interpretation   of   any
clause   of   the B. N. A.'Act   that
could compel the Dominion authori
ties to even consider the claims   of
the   Provinces    for   better   terms;
*   *   *   Premier McBride must have
kuown, and we assume that his organs also knew, that the recent conference presented probably the only
opportunity that will be afforded of
securing better   terms   for   British
Columbia.    We know that the Conservative press   and   many of   the
leaders in   the  Conservative party
entirely disapprove  of  any greater
subsidies being granted   the Prov-

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is a wonder that  the  Government road gang when  working  in
this vicinity recently  did   not   get
next to tbe state of the China creek
bridge.    This is a  fair  sample   of
the way in which our public  highways are looked after.    The  lion's
share of public money set aside for
such work is spent right   under the
nose  of   the   local   M.  P. P., and
when it comes  to spending   a   few
dollars elsewhere in making repairs
that     are   urgently    required,    of
course there is no money available.
The so called   bridge   over   China
m J~■'"  creeks stands as a menace to public
"Certain   newspapers   and  safety and if not  'repaired will   be

Oil the Side.
Next anitinal meeting of the Central
illiberal AssoSiattoTr" will he held at Kere
meos.
The prevalent opinion of Mr. Macdon-
^/.'■"';lv "'aid after the meeting was that he would
be premier atid that' under hi9 regime the
grafter and the male and female adventurers would obtain no quarter.
Mr. Sidley is a rising star in the Lib
eral firmament.    Shine on !
Smith Curtis is a very probable representative of the Similkameen. Who said
there was a dark horse in the field ?
A deep-dyed Tory and ex-candidate for
parliamentary honors says : "J. A. is too
honest to be premier." That is the only
fault the Tories'can find with him.
Chairman Fraser invited any friend or
supporter of the McBride government to
; CJine  forward  and   make  defence  of it
j^fe'Jl and refute any statements  made  by the:
speakers.    There  was   no  response and
. ficaijy    one  slight   interruption   occurred
.   during the leader's speech.
All the arrangements necessary for a
convention to select a candidate are vested
in'^he Central Association. The elections
will come as a thief in the night, hence
the necessity for a convention early in
the new year.
Lack of space prevents a fuller report
of the excellent speeches.
''Nick" Pickard, Mr. Shatford's aide
and new road boss, was there. He looked
careworn but will recover if he takes a
few more doses of Liberal tonics. His
predecessor is now a healthy and active
Liberal.    So, the good work goes on.
Leader Macdonald will visit the Similkameen soon after next session
