It was a great convention.  From Barkerville in the north to Cascade in the extreme southeastern corner of the big riding: every polling subdivision, was represented in the convention. Yale-Cariboo is no pocket  borough; it is an empire within itself,  and wheu'busy business men are found  in tlie convention taking a keen interest in the proceedings and willingly  giving a week of their time to the  great cause, then it is safe to assume  that liberalism is noi dead in Yale-  Cariboo. An unprejudiced observer of  the convention, proceedings and the  men who were there could not but be  impressed with ' the splendid type of  manhood      represented] Business  and professional men, the artizan and  the laborer, were all there determined  that they would do their share in perpetuating a government that.has done  much for Canada arid ' under whose  further administration there is every  assurance of an era of prosperity and  development in Yale-Cariboo.  Kamloops has' improved in recent  years. Nature has been kind to the'  in terior,-capita l-��vUl->.t;ho-..peett.V'-XnriiaM-  name. A splendid situation,, the most  perfect climate in British Columbia  and a rich surrouuding country;. Kamloops was bound to grow. But the  Kamloops of ten years, ago was  famous for its poor hotels and' worse  whisky. Today the hotel accommodation is satisfactory, and the city has  improved in other directions. Its  citizens are confident that it will yet  be a mining town, ��� and judging from  the showing of coppei ore in the Iron  Mask and outcropping of coal iu the  immediate vicinity, their confidence is  not misplaced;���^-^t"���"--f���-= -���=���,.*.-^^  But that is another story.

F.  J.  Deane called the meeting to order.    He  was made temporary chairman aud Dr.  M.S. Wade, secretary of the Kamloops  association,     was     made     temporary  secretary.    After the credentials committee      reported       these     appointments    were    made   permanent.     No  better   selection   could   be made.    At  8 o'clock the same   evening: the big  convention was over.     That so  much  was accomplished   in  the  short  time  was largely due to the tactful decisiveness of Chairman Deane.    Every delegate was treated  with ��� consideration,  but there was  no  dilly-dallying,  and  delegates fnnn a distance  anxious  to  get back to their homes were loud  in  their praises of the good work done by  the   chairman   and   secretary.   . The  credentials  committee   was  comprised  of the  following representatives from  the various provincial ridings:  Cariboo, J. B. Leighton; Lillooet, C.  B. Deans; Yale, A. M.

He  also pledged himself to support the  nominee of the convention.  Duncan Ross, owing to the 'ateness  of the hour, contented himself with a  brief reference to the importance of  developing the great district. of Yale-  Cariboo and what the government  could do to aid this important work.  He would consider the nomination a  great honor, but would work equally  enthusiastically if their choice fell  elsewhere.  D; O'Hara, A. R. Carrington and Dr.  Vankleek were appointed scrutineers,  and |the method of voting being arranged satisfactorily, the first ballot  was taken and resulted as follows: D.  Murphy 67, D. Ross .58, and J. D.  Swanson 29. According to the arrangements agreed upon Mr. Swauson's  name was dropped and the second  ballot resulted iu Russ receiving 80  votes and Murphy 75, aud upon the  motion of D. Murphy, seconded  by  J.  D. Swanson, the nomination of Mr.  Ross was made unanimous.  An adjournment was then taken for  an hour for dinner, aid on reassembling Mr. Ross thanked the convention  for the honor they had conferred upon  him by nominating him for so important a constituency as Yale-Cariboo.  A permanent organization was  formed, to. be known as . the Yale-  Cariboo Electoral District Association,  with officers as follows:  President, S. C. Smith, Vernon; secretary, C. E. Lefroy of Vernon. An  executive committee was appointed  consisting of one representative  from' each Provincial district, , as  fpllows: ..J. Hopgood, Cariboo; C. B.  Deans, Lillooet; D.

Organization for campaign purposes  was considered and it was decided that  the eampaign committee should' consist of the district executive and three  additional representatives from each  Provincial district, the selecting of the  latter being left to the several local  associations.   . .-  ; Messrs. Murphy, Swanson and Ross,  who were appointed a resolutions committee, submitted the following resolutions- to the. convention,:and they  were adopted amid applause;1  "The Liberals of.

Messrs. Smith and Lfifroyifhanked the  convention for selecting them as the  chief officers ot the campaign committee and promised their best efforts for  the success of the candidate.  Throughout the convention the best  spirit of feeling prevailed, Messrs.  Murphy and Swanson setting a splendid example by the expressions of  loyalty to the successful candidate.

JANUARY   22,  1904  LIBERAL   CONVENTION  Those who have interests of  Yale-Cariboo district at heart aad  are therefore anxious for the perpetuation of progressive government, cannot but feel gratified at  the representative character of  the convention held at Kamloops  last week. Every section of the  great district was represented by  one or more delegates. From  Barkerville in old Cariboo to  Cascade in the newer Boundary  district, the constituency was  represented by solid men who expressed their determination that  nothing would be left undone that  would insure the success of the  Liberal candidate in this riding.  The wisdom of  the choice made  __1��.T�� .4.1, .-. ��-vu-tlOuT  ���r-il-t xxxSi.���X.c  discussed here  for  obvious   personal   reasons.    The convention  after a keen but friendly contest,  unanimously selected  the  writer  as the Liberal candidate;    Newspaper men   have   more  modesty  than   they   are   usually  credited  with and there is always  a  hesitancy about  discussing  personal  matters in these columns, but we  will be pardoned for taking   ad-  "Tantage "of "this "opportunity "to  express our  thanks  to   the   convention for the high honor,   and  particularly do we desire to thank  those   whose   enthusiastic   work  met   with   success   in   the   convention.  The position is not without its  responsibilities. The convention  chose a candidate to support the  best government this Dominion  over knew, to give loyal allegiance to a leader of whom every  Canadian is proud, and who is  the embodiment of the verv  highest type of statesmanship,  and who most perfectly represents  what is best and hopeful in our  CanadianQlife. and further to  represent a district that is destined to play no mean part in the  building up of this Dominion.  The hope of the country and particularly- tbe district of Yale-  Cariboo lies iu the return of the  Laurier government. With loyal  enthusiastic supporters in all  parts of the district, with representative men returning from the  ojivention determined that Yale-  * 'ariboo Avill do its duty, (he candidal e should have no fear  regarding the result.  A POOR SERVICE  When the Greenwood Electric  vompany was granted a franchise  by the ratepayers of the city of  t ireeuwood the company entered  into an agreement with The corporation to do certain things.  During   the   past  few   months  hat  agreement  has  been   more  honored in the breach than in the  ��� ibservance.    The service has been  unsatisfactory   in   every respect.  Users of electric light, including  the city, were quite' willing to  give the company sufficient time  to improve the service, but  patience has now ceased to be a  virtue, and it is up to the company to live up to its agreement  with the ratepayers or forfeit its  charter.  The local management of the  company apparently believes that  the company is doing business  by Divine Right and not by the  grace of the ratepayers of the city  of Greenwood. So long, as this  view is held, no doubt it will -be  impossible to secure any improvement in the interests of the public  or the company. But an improvement must come. The company  must either make some effort to  live up td its agreement with the  city or the city will be compelled  to make some other arrangements  to secure a satisfactory service  for fhe'public.  . i Unless the service is improved  in all;probability the department  of inland revenue will be forced  to take, action. ' Companies supplying' electric light are ; compelled under the regulations of  the department to maintain a  specified voltage. In this regard,  "electric.light companies are subject to the regulations of the de-  par tm e,ti 1_ i n.. a.:Jsi m�� 1 a.r .wa.v.. t<:*  users of weights aud measures.  A decided improvement would  have to take place here if the  regulations of the department is  to be complied with.  THE   NEW  COUNCIL  The city is to be congratulated  upon the personnel of the new  council. Mayor Naden and Alderman Caulfield won their spurs  in pfevious~years~wheli_"carefiil  management was required to  place the city on a sound financial  footing. Aldermen Bunting and  McKenzie were thorough conscientious workers in the city's  interests last year, and Aldermen  McNeil and Parker, the new men  in the council, are level-headed  business men. The affairs of the  city are in safe hands. There is  much to be done during 1904, aud  the ratepayers can rest assured  the council will do what is in the  best interests of the city with the  funds at its disposal.  The report of the thirty-seventh  annual meeting of the shareholders of the Canadian Bank of  Commerce makes interesting  reading for the man interested in  the general growth and prosperity of the Dominion, as well  as for him who is more directly  interested in the growth and  prosperit}- of this particular bank.  The figures themselves���and  there is nothing in literature more  unemotional than a bank statement���tell the story of a prosperous and successful year all  over Canada and of shrewd and  skillful financing which has  made good use of its opportunities. For instance, omitting  bad and doubtful debts and allowing fully for deprecation, the  bank's balance sheets show a uef  profit of Si.004,217. or something  over 12 per cent. Ol this sum  $584,500 has been paid in dividends to the shareholders, this  being at the rate of 7 per cent.,  and 5500,000 has been transferred to rest, making that fund  $3,000,000.  K. B. Bennett of Calgary, Senator Lougheed's running mate,  who was defeated b- Frank  Oliver for the Dominion house,  iu the Alberta district, last  election, was offered the Conservative nomination again this  year, but stated that on account  of too much business he cannot  accept it. Under Liberal rule  -Bennet has a bank account.  Under Conservative rule Bennett  was stepping sideways for a herring in New Brunswick.  <K>00000<KX>0000<)OOOCKH>CpCOOO  A PIPE  CINCH  Editor Gruesel of the Spokane  Press and Editor Nichol of the  Vancouver Province are deep  thinkers. About every other day  the editorials in these papers are  the same, word for word. The  articles are supposed to be the  product of the braiuery department; but evidently these papers  have purchased a job lot of second  hand gray matter.  ! The Phoenix Pioneer says:  "The McBride government seems  to be getting on very well." The  government might be getting  along alright; but the province  is in ver)- poor health at present.  The legislatures of Manitoba,  Nova Scotia, Ontario and British  Columbia are now in session; and  jiist to be in the swim the Tories  of Yale-Cariboo were in session  a!t Kamloops this week.  Coal oil has again gone up one  cent. The reason of the advance  is due to generous Rockefeller giving each of his employees a turkey on New Year's day.  Organized Labor  ' Wherever you find organized labor  strongest-there you find the best protection for a child. ��� Children of tender  years nre protected from the cupidity  of mill and factory owners by the untiring- efforts of unionists. Every law  on the statute books in favor of the  child was placed there by organized  labor. Moreover, the trade unionist  has   done   more   for   woman   than all  her   his   ecoromic   eq'.ial.    These  are  facts for humanists to reflect upon.  Hot  Air  The following item is from the New  York Banker, published in Wall street,  which claims to be a pastmaster in  finance: In Greenwood district there  are six smelters in active operation,  j educing 4000 tons daily, and it is said  this production can easilv be doubled  by spring. The force of miners has  ^ee.nJnc.rea.s.edi^.^ropjsrties^Jh^._.^er<5  looked upon as mere prospects six  months or a year ago, have since  developed into paying mines.  An Attack of Pneumonia Warded off  "Some time ago my daughter caught  a severe cold. She complained of pains  in her chest and a bad cough. 1 gave  her Chamberlain's Cough Remedy according to directions and in two days  she was well and able to go to school.  I have u?ed this remedy in my fa:r ily  for the past seven years and have never  known it to fail,'' says James Prender-  gast. merchant, Annato Bay, Jamaica,  West India Islands, The pains in the  chest indicated an approaching attack  of pneumonia, which in this instance  was undoubtedly warded off by Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It counteracts any tendency of a cold toward  pneumonia. For sale by J. L. White  Greenwood and A. F. Thomas Midway.
