Senator Templeman in reference to Mr. . McBride's motive in ��� so  doing, as well as to the political situation generally in British Columbia.  When asked if he could give the reason  for the McBride government changing  the date of the general election from  the 31st of October to the 3rd of October, and fixing the nominations on the  19th inst., thus shortening the / time  one month���the Senator said the only  one he could at the moment assign was  "pure cussedness" on,the part of Mr,  McBride, but as he was not on the  ground, and had received no information as to the reason for cutting four  weeks off the time previously arranged  for, he might be doing the Premier, an  injustice in so describing what seemed  at first sight, an unnecessary if not an  unjustifiable act; .  ;���������' IV was suggested to. the Senator that  probaply the Lieutenant Governor had  intimated to Premier McBride the pro-*  'priety of-making _. an earlier appeal to  the electorate than he had intended, but  on this point the Senator.could ;nbt express an opinion.  "Possibly," he said, "there may be  something in.that, but I doubt it. lam  rather inclined to; think Mr.-McBride is  manoeuvering to obtain an advantage.  He made a tour of the province, and  found out, very likely, that his cause is  steadily losing ground.' If he waited another month, he very properly reasons,  his party wiU be overwhelmed, and so  he has determined to try and snatch a  victory before his opponents are ready.  But it will not succeed. The liberals  may not be ready for the contest, 'but  neither are their opponents, and on that  score there is no advantage on either  _sid_��.=_^=__=_._=___^     ..=._.._. ^^^^^.^.^  "Neither party has all its candidates  nominated yet; probably not more than  one-third of the whole number are in  the field. And nomination day is only  twelve days away! Yes, we do things  differently in British Columbia to the  other provinces, but the other provinces  have not got the same kind of political  strategists in office that British Columbia."  Reminded that theLiberals were lead-  erless, and reported to be divided,  while the Conservatives were in power,  with all the influence of patronage at  their back, and hence the conditions  at this distance would seetn to be in  favor of the latter, Senator Templeman  replied that conditions could not be accurately guaged at such long range.  '���It is,'* he said, "British Columbia's  misfortune to be misjudged in more  ways than one. The Conservatives  have the position, but the Liberals  have the better.cause and the numbers.  They have only to stand together to  control the situation. Because there  is no officially proclaimed leader of the  Liberals timid friends may fear that  the party is thereby at a disadvantage,  while the Conservatives would not hesitate to point to that facl, as an evidence of weakness. In my opinion a  united party without a leader is infinitely stronger than a disunited party  with ta leader. Sir John Thompson  was at one time the Conservative  Premier of Nova Scotia. On one oc-  cassion he appealed to the people, and  was opposed by the Liberals, who had  ; no leader. The ��� Liberals were  victorious, and subsequently, from  among the representatives they then  returned, there wai selected one of the  most successful Provincial Premiers  who has ever been in public life in  Canada, the Hon. W. Fielding, at present Finance Minister of the Dominion.  What was done in Nova Scotia will be  repeated in British Columbia. There  may not be a Fielding among our candidates, it is true, but it is equally true  that the gentleman who leads our opponents is far from being a Sir John  Thompson. After the elections the  Liberals can select from among their  number as the Nova Scotia Liberals  did, one who as Premier will give to  the Province stable and honest government, which is above everything else  the one thing that it is most in need  of."  ',��  Asked to explain the platforms of the  two parties, the Senator laughed, and  said:. '"Really, I cannot do that; I have  not seen them. I suppose, however,  that while there may be printed plat-  forrhsrespecting local issues, both Liberals and Conservatives will pin their  faith to the policies and records of their  respective parties in the Dominion field.  Political.platforms seem to be considered necessary, and when they contain  principles that can and should be given  effect;;to in legislation, they no doubt  serve* ,ja useful purpose. But to my  mind the best platform is a good record -and the worst a bad one. Both  partieshave records to be judged by,  the Liiierals'in the Dominon field only,  because theyhave never been the ruling paj-ty iii-provincial affairs, and the  Conservatives in both Provincial and  Dominion. For twenty years Conservative politicians, practising Conservative itt'ethods, have always been in the  ascendent. In both spheres the Conservatives have records, and by these  records rather than by their present-  day platforms, or the promises of Mr.  McBride on the stump, will be judged  Mr. McBride has inherited the sins of  his political forefathers, and they are  so great that all the waters of the  Fraser cannot wash them away. It  may be the old gang will die with Mr.  McBride's defeat, but until he is defeated, the danger that it will be perpetuated in him and. his colleagues,,  and mis-rule so be continued, is very  great indeed. As yet the snake has  beeu scorched, not killed.  "The excellent character and high  standing of the Liberal candidates'this  far .placed in nomination is an indication of greater, interest in public af*  fajrs.t^your best citizens than ever before.' The personnel of the two tickets  will no doubt have much to do with the  result, for our people, or many of them,  will Continue to be influenced, by the  personallity of the rival. candidates.  It will take them some time to become  imbued with the real party instinct."  "Of course there is no use disguising  the fact that the Liberals have had in  the past divisions in their ranks, just as  their opponents have today, But they  have not been divisions arising out of  disagreements in respect to any question of policy or principle. They have  been mostly of a trivial kind and gen.  erally the natural outcome of. the "no-  party" system that has prevailed in  British Columbia ever since it was given responsible government.   It wasim-  party to go to the poll to defeat (lie  common enemy, that is tlie only thing  that should concern our political friends  or the public al present. This is the  only thing we have now to do. Afterwards the Liberals elected will choose  the leader and that leader will lead a  united Liberal party.  "Great things 'will be doing' in British Columbia during the next five years.  We are going to build a great transcontinental railway from the Pacific to  the. Atlantic, five hundred miles of  which, costing $25,000,000 will be in  British Columbia. What that will mean  to th�� province in growth-of population  and the development of marvellous  natural resources, every person who  has resided in British Columbia since  the completion of the C. P. R. (save  Senator McDonald and Mr. Earle) can  tell. A Liberal goverdment is needed  at Victoria during those five years.  The Conservatives have been bungling  projected railway enterprises, long'  enough, and there would be a positive  danger in placing them in a position  to retard or hold up the Grand Trunk  Pacific. The only two Conservative  representatives at Ottawa, Senator  McDonald and Mr. Thos. Earle, M. P.  (Senator Reid being absent,) have done  all they could do to defeat this maghi-  fiicent enterprise. In the regretable  partisan spirit displayed, they represented it is but reasonable to . suppose  the views of the Conservatives of British Columbia, chief among whom are  Mr. McBride and hi* colleagnees. 'if  the people of British Columbia desire  that railway to be built; and at a cost  to them of not one dollar, they should  see to it that that the men who oppose  its construction are not placed in a position to defeat their wishes. There  will be other railway building British  Columbia during the next year or two,  avd on the completion of the G. T. -P.  lines to the north and south, opening  up vast mineral and agricultural areas  now absolutely valueless, will, rapidly  follow. What the C. P. R* has done  in developing the southern fringe of  the Province will be.duplicated by the  G. T. P. in the center, possibly even to  a- greater'- degree because the- *natural  difficulties to be" surmounted, are less  while the natural resourcesof the country are known to be equally as great,  This, then, it is not the time to place  ni en in power at Victoria who are ready  to kill a preject calculated to do, so  much for British Columbia. For this  reason alone if0 for no other (and of  course there are others) the best interests of the Province require that a Liberal Government shall rule British Columbia after the 3rd day of October  next. ;    i  "And do you know," added tne Senator, "I think the Liberals will be victorious.   The old gang must go."  THREE ARE  I  Nominations Took Place on  Saturday Last.

Both parties in  Victoria have but to recall the last bye  election to admit the truth of this statement. But whatever the divisions in  the respective parties, or whatever  their causes, there is no longer the  semblance of an excuse for maintaining  them. The Conservatves will come together at the last moment if they have  not'already done so, and even Col; Prior,  ex-Premier, may yet be found championing the cause of the party, a section  of which was responsible with the Liberals for his expulsion and downfall.  If the Conservative can finding standing room with the party led by McBride, the Liberals can with greater  propriety and less sacrifice of principle,  unite under one banner. Those who  decline to do so will be working almost  as effectively in behalf of the Conservatives as though they actually joined  the "old gang" that for twenty years  has given to British Columbia the  worst government that any province in  Canada has ever had.  "There is no split In the Liberals  ranks that I know of, and no friction  that may not be made to dissappear.

For the past six or seven years  man}' of the sober, sensible electors of Greenwood have devoted  their energies towards making*  ;he Boundary district, a prosperous populous, mining* community*  with contented workmen and solid  enterprising* towns. Their work  to some extent has been crowned,  with success, but there have been,  some disappointments. In some  instances circumstances over  which the people had. no control  militated ag-ainst the rapid development of the district: in others  justice was secured only after  many appeals and well directed  efforts. For years the district  was practically disfranchised.  At first it was a portion of the  East Yale riding and when it was  fully entitled to representation of  its own, the Conservative government then in power instead of doing justice by' the Boundary attached it to the ��� Rossland riding.  We used the words Conservative  government advisedly. It was  better known as the Turner government but Mr. Turner boasted  on the public platform and in the  house that his government was a  conservative g-overnment from top  to bottom. It was only last year  that the was granted fair reipre-  sentatiom and this was secured  through the efforts of local Liberals and the small band of Liberals in the Legislature who at  that time held the : balance of  power. '.''.'.  This is  the first  time that the  electors    of   Greenwood    riding  have had an opportunity to  elect  a   representative of   their   own.  "Who shall be their choice ?    The  whole province and the great outside    world*   is    interested    in  the result ? .. Is the Boundary going to elect a level  headed man,  with   capacity    for    legislation,  in the best interests of the riding  and  the  province,   or is it going  to retttrn a man who even cannot  intelligentl)- exploit the- extarva-  " gailt th^rifeWlrt"th^^rtj^wKich  is behind him?     Surely the men  who have struggled in the Boundary for its success and its development,   and  for justice  in the  matter  of representation are not  going to jeopardize the future  of  the district   by returning. Ernest  Mills.    The only way to prevent  this is by voting for J. R. Brown  the      Liberal      candinate.    Dr.  Spankie's candidature is  the  result of the importunities of bitter  parti/.ans who worship Toryism  in preference to all else and whose  efforts are now being directed not  to elect their  man but to defeat  the Liberal candidate.    The electors who have not been carried  o  away by the specious arguments  of misguided enthusiasts should  \-ote for Mr. Brown. This appeal  is made not only to business men  but to laboring men who arewise  enough to see, that the growth of  socialism means death to their  unions and that only through  the"r unions can they hope to protect and develop the best interests of the working man. The  interests of the Boundary our  home and our hope, is at stake.  Sensible electors make your  choice.  scheme to give away these valuable coal and oil lands to the  C. P. R. his cffvermneiit has now  refused prospectors the right to  prospect these lands, evident j}*-  with a view to dangling* them before the C. P. R. or Great Northern, whichever will put up the  biggest corruption fund. A prospector who applied got this letter  "This application has been taken  into consideration by the department of lands aud works, (of  which Hon. R. McBride is chief  commissioner,) and I am instructed to return vou cheque for S50,  and to inform you it is not the  intention of the government to  issue licenses to prospect for coal  aud pretroleum in that section." The prospectors of British Columbia have as much right  to these coal and oil lands as  Jim Hill or the C.  P. R.-  THERE'S THE RUB.  The premier is trying to pump  it into a section ofthe electors  that the duty of "the faithful" is  to vote for his nominee if it is only  a yellow dog or a broomstick.  Mr. McBride will find the majority of the electors recognize a  man who. as minister of mines,  voted to give away between $15,  000,000 and $20,000,000 of the  richest coal and oil lands of the  province without investigation is  not the man to be intrusted with  the premiership. If Mr. McBride  could calmly tell the committee of  investigation "I did not bother  my head about it," there is grave  danger he might vote to sacrifice  even greater interests of the people, without bothering his head  about it. Every elector who  votes to support^Mr.; McBride as  premier under these circumstances  votes to continue the reign of intrigue and spoliation of the property of the people which has been  the curse of this province. '  EDITORIAL NOTES.  The. Province. states every  union man in. the- hall left the  meeting at Vancouver in sympathy with Ralph Smith when  the socialists indulged in the disgraceful scene to prevent Mr.  Smith from having a hearing-.  The incident has given socialism  a great set- back as people natur-,  ally ask what would be expected  of socialism in power when in its  earlier stages it promotes mob  bull-dozing?  INJUSTICE TO PROSPECTOR  The McBride government cannot help showing its hand in regard to the coal and oil lands.  Not satisfied with stipporting,  when    minister  of    miaes,   the  Has Dr. Spankie suffiicient  force of character, sufficient a-  bil ity r " sufficient" knowledge"of  political affairs, to withstand the  the onslaught of men like D. M.  Eberts, C. E. Pooley, Price Ellison aud other old time grafters  who are behind McBride. The  doctor is a good doctor, but as a  politician he would be only one  of those little apples that Ernest  Mills so reluctantly gives God  credit for making.  To those who are interested  and have confidence iu the Boundary District: How does Ernest  Mills' suit you as a candidate?  Does he truly represent your ambitions and aspirations ? Is he a  suitable representative of the  greatest ore producing district of  the province? If not then vote  for J. R. Broun. A vote for Dr.  Spankie is a vote thrown awa3r.  W. H. P. Clements is one of  the strong men in the contest.  His election would be welcomed  by the Liberal party and would  be a credit to the Boundary.  Brown and Clement are strong  pair. The interests of the  Boundary will have in them two  stalwart champions.  The history of Socialism in the  Boundary ! A windy blatherskite from California stampedes  otherwise sensible men into the  Socialistic ranks and a clever  lawyer disapointed in securing a  lucrative office from the Dominion government does the rest.  There is nothing new about the  Conservative methods in the  Greenwood district., It is .their  general line of policy. They desire to discuss public issues as'  little as possible and go on a still  hunt for votes.  The Times strongly urges the  electors of Greenwood to go and  hear Eruest Mills the Socialist-  candidate. If they do so, it is a  certainty that they will uever  vote for him.  J. R. Brown in his campaign  speeches has demonstrated that  he has a thorough grasp of provincial affairs. He has the necessary qualifications for a good  legislator.  The Liberals have given the  Dominion and the majoritj- of the  provinces good government.  Why not give British Columbia  a chance?  R. B. Ker sheds tears over the  fact that thej Nihilists of Russia  are languishing in Siberia dungeons because of their loyalty to  Scocialism.'  ,. It is rather strange that the  socialists should feel so thoroughly against lawyers and at the  same time retain one to conduct  their campaign.  E. W.

The annual Harvest Home Festival  entertainment, held in the Methodist  church on Tuesday evening was a great  success in every 'vay. So great was  the attendance that the temporary partition between the ante room and the  church proper, had* to be removed, in  order to accomodate the crowd. A good  programme of choruses, solos and  speeches was rendered, Mrs. McCut-  c.heon presiding at the organ, aud at  the close a tasty lunch of cake and coffee was served.  The children's march and chorus  was good and showed evidence of careful training. Rev. Mr. Green of Phoenix sang two solos which were much  appreciated and 'Rev. Mr. Betts of  Grand Forks delivered a short address  brim full of humour, in which he traced the progress of the country from the  time he first came here until the present, and giving reasons for a hopeful  view of the future. Mrs. Methot'ssolos^  were a musicial treat and her early de  parture from Greenwood will be particularly regretted by those who appreciate music.  Rev. Mr. Knox the pastor, the ladies,  aid of the church and all. others who  assisted can congratulate themselves  upon the result obtained, as well as  upon the splendid condition of the  church generally.  Sad Accident.  Phoenix, Sept. 23.���The first fatality  that has occured for 3'ears at any mine  in Summit camp happened yesterday  morning at the Emma mine, which is  being operated by the Hall mines  smelter, of Nelson. Archie Connor one  of the old time prospectors of the  Boundary, was the victim, losing his  life by being crushed by a mass of ore.  Connor and Morrison, the latter a  brother of the foreman, had gone into  the ore chute to loosen some large  pieces of ore that prevented the bal-  ancce from going down, and provided  themselves with a rope, to be quickly  caught in case the ore should suddenly  give way beneath them. The ore did  give way, as expected, when loosened  .and^Morrison-succeeded -in-grasping  the rope, while Couuor unfortunately  missed it, and went down in the falling  ore. Death must have been almost instantaneous, as it took the mine force  several hours to get his body out, there  having probably been twenty or twenty  five tons of ore above him. Dr. G. E.  ���Spankie, of Greenwood, was sent for,  and arrived long before the remains  were recovered, but, of course, life had  'ong been extinct. The remains were  terribly mutilated.  Dr. George M. Foster, the district  coroner was summoned, and this afternoon an inquest was held at tne mine,  which is located on the Phoenix spur,  between this place and Enolt.  Connor was a native of Belfast,  Maine, where he has a father and  mother residing. He was a man of  over 50 years of age, am1, unmarried.  He is one of the old time prospectors in  the Boundary, having been in this section for the last ten or twelve years,  and having properties in different  camps. Last winter he worked at the  Granby mines, and but a little over a  month ago joined Phoenix Miners  Union, No. 8.
