PREMIER TO PEOPLE
Address to  the Electorate by
Canada's Great, Good
Old Man.
Broad in Conception, Lofty in Sentiment, Sir Wilfrid Inspires
the Nation.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, after dissolution of
parliament issued the following address,
which readers are asked to carefully consider and compare with Conservative
addresses, manifestoes and speeches :
| TO THE CANADIAN<^_____S^tXl^
•At all times during the last forty years
it has been the constant effort of all political parties in Canada to make with
the United States an arrangement for
the free exchange of natural products be
tween the two countries.
'In 1854, Lord Elgin, on behalf cf
Canada and the Maritime Provinces, negotiated with the United States a treaty
for that purpose, which lasted until 1866,
and which within .he memory^of' many-
still alive,-was of the greatest advantage.
Ever since the termina_iott'3f .hat treaty
all public men of any prominence, in
Canada, whatever their differences 011
other questions,"have been unanimous^ in'
the attetnpt to again secure this free exchange of natural products. Nor is this
to be wondered at, seeing that in the industries of agriculture, fisheries, lumbering and mining, Canada possesses advantages not enjoyed by any other
country on earth, and that upon the
markets secured for the products of
these industries depends the growth of
our manufacturing and commercial interests and the prosperity of all classes in
the Dominion.
Conservatives Favored Reciprocity.
'The latest attempt of the Conservative
paity to that end was n-ade by Sir John
M icdonald himself, who dissolved Parliament in 1891 for the purpose of submitting to the electorate of Canada the
expediency of his approaching again the
American authorities for a renewal of
the treaty of  1854.
"In 1893 the intention to obtain reci
procity with the United States, if po.cs
iole, was made a prominent' feature in
the platform of the Liberal party, upon
which that party attained power in 1896.
'After the present Government took
office it renewed in vain this offer to the
United States, but, meeting with no re
sponse. it declared that no further overtures of this nature would be made by
Canada.
U.S. Government Makes Offer.
'Within the last twelve months the
President of the United States sent to
Ottawa two-Commissioners from  Wash-
inton for the purpose of opening nego-
tirtions looking toward the lowering of
the tariff barriers which have hitherto
stood in the way of freer exchange of
commodities between Canada and the
United States. These negotiations in
January last culminated in an agreement
between the two governments, by which
the duties of each country cm" such products might be lowered or altogether removed. This agreement was strenuously
tesisted in the United States by various
interest on the alleged ground that it was
all to the advantage of Canada and to
the detritnent of the other country, but
the view that it was mutually advantageous to both countries finally prevailed
in Congress, and the agreement stands
today as an offer by the United Statet to
Canada of that rery measure of reciprocity which for more than 40 years has engaged the earnest and-constant efforts of
every leading Canadian statesman.
Blind Opposition.
• 'The present Conservative party in
Parliament seeks absolutely to reverse
the lifelong policy of its great leaders in
the past, declaring that it will oppose to
the bitter end the very principles enunciated by both Sir John Macdonald and
Sir John Thompson in the last election
addresses upon whie-h each of these
_s_____n dK ever appealed to the -Canadian
people. _ -
'Not content to debate his. propositon
upon its "merits, the Conservative party
in the House of Commons -has adopted a
system of organized and avowed obstruction to prevent any vote being, taken in
Parliament by which the opinion of your
representatives there could be expressed.
Tory Obstructive Tactics.
'Day after day when the presiding
ojficer has tried to put the question he
has been met by dilatory motions, by
endless speeches, by obstructive devices
of every kind, each put forward on some
specious pretext, but in ceality nothing
else than an abuse of freedom of speech
in Parliament debate.
'Such pretences are simply a clumsy
attempt to give some color to unwarrant
ed and undignified obstruction.   -
'To overcome this obstruction' after a
session which has already lasted eight
months,"would not only mean the continuation of the unseemly spectacle presented by the opposition in the House of
Commons since the resumption of tts
sittings ou the 12th instant, but would
mean weeks and months of wasted time,
and perhaps in the end the loss for this
season to the Canadian producer of the
free American markets.
Let the People Judge.
'In this condition of things it has
seemed^to bis Excellency's advisers more
in accordance with the dignity of Parliament; with the traditions of those
British institutions which all true Can-

CONSERVATIVE MEETING.
Martin Burrell and other speakers are
announced by posters to speak at the
I.O.O.F. hall Thursday, tomorrow night.
This is Mr. Burrell's first appearance here
since his election iu' 1908. He will, no
doubt, give a resume bf his parliamentary labors generally with a spice of reciprocity thrown in. Mr. Burrell is a gentleman politician, clean in tactics, an
interesting speaker and a believer in a
high protective tariff between the United
States and Canada. Every voter should
hear him and intelligently weigh the
argument he presents against reciprocity.
Ladies are inyited to attend.
LIBERAL CANDIDATE COMING.
The Liberal candidate for Yale-Cariboo,
Dr. K. C. McDonald, of Vernon, has arranged to address the electors of Princeton on Thursday, the 7th of September.
He will also speak at Keremeos on the
5th of Sept. and Hedley on the 6th. Dr.
McDonald is an able speaker, earnest and
energetic in his political calling, and one
iu'whom electors may confide their interests in perfect security. Having reciprocity in all its popular adaptation to
the netds of a growing nation for his
theme, Dr. McDonald cannot fail to make
a strone run. Later in the campaign it
will be possible to name the probable
winner. At present the outlook is for a
close contest although Mr. Burrell had a
majority of 893 over D. Ross in the last
elections.
NEW   ANGLICAN CHURCH.
The members of the Anglican church
were visited last week by Bishop De-
pencier of the diocese of New Westminister and a large congregation enjoyed an
eloquent address delivered by his lordship at a service held on Wednesday
evening in the schoolhouse. After the
service a few members of the congregation-gathered at the residence of Mr.
and Mrs.. Andras to meet the bishop and
h_re it- was decided to undertake the
ererection of a church on the lot on Bill-
iter avenue donated, to tbe payysh by
Mrs. James A'nderso'n.. ~ A subscription
list was commenced headed by his lordship's personal ^©nation of $100 and" the
amount already subscribed amounts to
over $500. The.building will cost in the
neighborhood of $1,200 and is planned
to admit of future, enlargement by the
addition of a chancel to. the east'wall.
The sealing capacity will be about eighty.
The architecture will-'be simple but of
the best and it may be expected that the
building will be an ornament of which
the town will have reason to be proud.
It is to be hoped that every resident of
the district, no nfatter of what religeous
leanin,g will recognize in this enterprise
a personal appeal and - will contribute
something towards the.cxwt so that the
committe undertaking the work will be
enabled to commence with the required
funds in hand.—Com.

THE CANDIDATES.
With the nominations of both the
Liberal and Conservative candidates
made the decks are cleared for action. Both candidates are men of
good report and esteemed citizens
of their individual cities. Mr.
Burrell has just completed his first
parliamentary term at Ottawa and
'has accomplished .ail .that could be
.reasonably -expected of any member in the Conservative opposition
party. He-is .an _tnoompromising
opponent -of reciprocity with the
United States and would limit our
commercial dealings .with the Americans to the extent of a high tariff
* wall  between  the ttwo   countries.
RHis teaching and .his policy would
gtend to narrow -out foreign trade
and bar the door .to -more friendly
-relations with a neighbot' nation of
more than eighty millions of people. Dr. McDonald is tbe Liberal
candidate, chosen f __©m a number
-of very able mominees at regular
convention in iKamloops. He has
been in tbe political saddle before
and.made a .good ,ampression as a
speaker and politician in 1 the provincial elections, his opponent being
the hon. JPrice Ellison, .minister of
finance. The ;Dr. stands ou the
rock, reciprocity. 'No other foundation for the Liberal platform.
The ultimate goal is free trade within the British_Empr_e and with the
United States. Then -other nations
will clamor.for-iree trade. As may
be expected -from two gentlemen'
candidates the campaign will be
clean and fairly 'Conducted. There
are no side issues -with which to'
confuse -or befog the people—reciprocity is the all absorbing question and on its merits will hinge the
result of the ballots of voters on
September 21st.
Vote for da^_/ freece»_l, free trade
MUST HAVE WIDER MARKET.
It is a well known fact that agriculture  is  the   basis  of  Canada's
prosperity.    Everyone  is intensely
interested at this season of the year
in the crop  conditions  and reports
of the probable  wheat yield in the
great grain   growing  provinces are
subjects of eager comment.    If the
crops are good and the prices right
the whole  of Canada  feels  the resultant  benefit.    To  find a market
for  the  vastly  increasing product
of the prairie wheat fields is giving,
wheat  growers  and  wheat dealers
some inquisitive thought  as to the
future.    At  the  present rate of increase the west  will, in five years,
be producing five  hundred millions
of bushels of   wheat,    more   than
double  its  present  amount.     The
farmer knows that Britain consumes
two  hundred   millions of   bushels
annually from all countries and that
soon   he  will   have   to  seek other
markets.     By a  recent act of congress  the U.S. government invites
the  Canadian   wheat  grower,   the
dairyman,   fruit   grower  and food
producers  generally   to  export  to
their  country.     That  government
offers  our   farmers   the  American
markets  on  the  same terms given
their own farmers—absolutely free.
They need our wheat to supply the
demands of a huge, increasing population  and  a   diminishing  wheat
yield in  western  states.    Why not
sell a portion  of our immense crop
to  them  at  a  good  price?    Who.
will be  so  disloyal  to  his country
and   his  own   interests   as   to vote
against  reciprocity  and  the wider
market?.
ENGLISH VIEW OF IT.
Senator Bostock speaking at the
Liberal convention which chose Dr.
King of Cranbrook to oppose Mr.
Goodeve in Kootenay, said : 'As an
Englishman he was thoroughly in
favor of reciprocity. He had no
fear that if it were adopted Canada
would be annexed to the United
States. No Canadian or Englishman would allow himself to be annexed if he did not want to be.
Reciprocity would extend Canada's
markets and make a prosperous and
happy Dominion from one end to
the other.'

MOST PEOPLE want to invest their money where
they are reasonably sure of a good return. If the
investment is to be made in real estate there are several
things to be considered : The situation of the town, climatic
conditions, transportation facilities, and primarily the
amount of the monthly payroll. When these questions are
asked regarding Coalmont they may all be answered to the
credit of the town. The situation and climatic conditions
are ideal; the main line of the V.,V. & E. railway runs
through the town on its way to Vancouver.
The Columbia Coal & Coke Co. operating here have practically an inexhaustible supply of a pure bituminous coal.
They are installing immediately a plant which will handle
2000 tons of coal in 8 hours—this means employment for between
800 and 900 men all told.
Figure out .his payroll and see how many coal mining towns
in B.C. can beat it. _>__!
In a very short time  Coalmont will necessarily have a poputa**
tion of from 2000 to 2500 people.   Will;-.this cause real estate to rise ?
We all know the answer.   Then  take the opportunity, that presents
itself now—buy first hand and reap the benefit of this increase.
The prices and terms are such that anyone can afford to inves
to the extent of one or two lots. They range from $i7'5|to.#550, on
terms of % cash, balance over 18 months.
