A. Loaan &<Co*
Tbe comedy of misunderstandings, entitled, by Joseph Derrick,
"Confusion," presented last Friday night by the Greenwood Amateur Dramatic Society -was a surprise—a series of intensely interesting surprises, to even tbe most
sanguine boosters of the production. The bouse was the largest
of. the season and every man,
woman and child laughed themselves out. The usual marks of
an amateur performance were, so
far as could be detected by the ordinary theatre-goer, quite missing. The interpretation given
the.piece, while it is said to be
different from that put upon it
in Rossland and Nelson where it
was given be fore, was remarkably
effective and having seen it one
wonders how it could be bettered
in any way. Miss Beldon as Lo-
cretia Tickelby was particularly
worthy of commendation and the
reports we have of later productions, are to the effect that her appreciation of the. drama.tic. features of her part grew stronger
with each repetition. Mrs.-Stow
as Rose Mumbleford displaved a
great deal of power • in her expression of the peculiarly feminine enthusiasms of her part. As
Violet, Miss Oppenheimer was a
delightfully graceful person,
while as Maria, Mrs. McLaine
•excelled herself by the vim, and
withal the naturalness that she
put in a heavy and fairly unpleasant role.
As James, C. A.Thomas who was
on the stage a great deal of the
time, had an idea of fitful servility broken by recurring VrebelHbri;
and wilfulness that .grew on the
audience. Of his master, Mortimer Mumbleford, it is hard' to
speak. His character called for
continued and ready exhibition of
dramatic power ' and Randolph
Stuart was alwas perfect in his
work. Muzzle (R. S. Ross) was
humorously confident that he was
there with the goods, while Sun-
berry (O.JP. Hawtrey), kept his
character of an English dandywith
great cleverness. His ridiculous
diagnosis of Mumblef ord'a trouble
and his great belie! in his volatile
friend,! Dr. Jones (S. M. Tees),
who attempted to subdue the fran
tic Mumbleford, by the power of
his eye, added a great deal of comedy to the play. TJje remaining
character, Blizzard (F. W. McLaine,), throughout his furious
infatuation, his petulant and yet
insistent conduct towards Lncre-
tia, and his increasing burden of
misunderstandings and apparently hopeless entanglements kept
hobling along, putting real life
into his part. He will perhaps
be longest remembered of the
Of the orchestra we can only
echo our appreciation in the spirit of the card of thanks-published
elsewhere. R. J. Saonder's trombone solo was simply splendidly
given and the audience showed
its hearty appreciation by the
ringing encore it gave. Greenwood has every reason to be proud
of an orchestra that cannot be
equalled it is safe to say in the
Boundary or Kootenay country.
Duncan Ross, M.P., Charges Insincerity
of McBride Administration in Bowser
Bill---Bowser's Reply.
In Ottawa, on Jan. 22,s Duncan
Ross, M.P., made a speech which
from the splutter  it occasioned
in the McBride-Bowser household, may be considered to,have
been very much 'to the point. Mr.
Ross levelled a series ot definite
charges against the' sincerity of
the McBride administration Te the
Bowser Bill. '.; Attorney-general
Bowser and the, Vancouver Province have replied; mostly with
abuse. The Attorney-general
seems to think that calling Mr.
Ross the muckrake of the Liberal
party is sufficient to divert the attention of the people of ^is province from his own trickery. The
Province loses ail its notions of
journalistic, dignity as it pours
out a column aid a half of abuse
on what it terms an irresponsible
political parasite and a "vulgar
prevaricator who cannot be called
to account but who is regarded as
not only unreliable but worse
wherever he is Iknow.n." If we
are looking for proof of the charges which Mr. :R:6ss has so, fairly
brought, the fact thatf his words
are met with ;;such calumnious
and vaporous   fulminati0n3 is  a
pretty gtod4^iii^^cati0,:l; '9* how
near they couie- to the truth. In
order that his Constituents may
,have a fair idea of what Mr. Ross
did say, we ;givV at considerable
length thebest report of liis speech

from Friday's "Victoria Times."
After,; asserting that the people
of British Columbia were' unalterably opposed to Oriental immigration, Mr. Ross continued :
VAs was our duty, representing

Of British Columbia' members
from British Columbia, have, in
this House, and outside this
House, endeavored to press upon
the government and upon parliament and the people of the East,
the views of the people of British Columbia.
*'On the other hand, friends of
the honorable gentlemen opposite, have represented*the other extreme views.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company, the Canadian Manufacturers' Association,
and other large employers of labor, who have known to have been
friendly to the honorable gentlemen opposite, have laid  it down
as their policy that all barriers to
cheap labor in this country should
be broken down and that an   u n-
limited supply of Oriental, labor
•should be allowed   to come into
this country.
"Again,the right hon. the Premier, exercising that sound judgment which he has always displayed, stepped into the breach
and by a happy compromise, has,
I believe, succeeded in satisfactorily settling this question. It
has not been settled in the way

that province are reasonable people and so long as they have assurances that this question has
been settled in a manner that
will insure them what they want,
they are not going to complain,
because they did not get everything they wanted. There is no
good reason why if by diplomatic
action which has been successfully carried on by the honorable
the Postmaster-General, a. satisfactory solution of this dangerous
question has been secured, that
anyone should complain because
his own method of   settling   the
question was not adopted.
"'But, sir, notwithstanding
the fact that everYthing has been
done looking towards the settlement of this question, and every
effort that has been made to meet
the views of the people of the
province of British Columbia, are
to the credit of this government,
the premier of the Province of
British Columbia and his follow.
ers are day in and day out attempting to convince the people there
that the Laurier government is

anxious for a settlement of this
question. This government appointed a Royal Commission to
investigate the question a number
of years ago and in accordance
with the recommendation of that
commission, they i mposed a five

portion of the question was settled • fo the satisfaction of the
people of the province of British
Columbia. In response to repre-.j
sentations made by the people of
the province, the Postmaster-
General was sent .to Japan for the
purpose of arranging a settlement

Conservative party in the province
of British Columbia are endeavoring to keep   alive the   agitation
and'by the passage of acts which
have   been   declared   again and
again to be ultra vires of the authority  of. provincial legislation
they are7 endeavoriug to make it
difficult for this" government   to
secure a  satisfactory -settlement
of the question.   No opportunity
is lost by Conservative leaders in
British   Columbia   to    endeavor
to place British Columbia representatives in this House in a-false
light   before   the  people of the
province   and. in   justice to the
course we have always pursued
here, I am compelled,to crave the
[.indulgence of t'he House, while I
give'a little   inside history.    By
relating   a. tew facts  connected
with this question it will immediately be apparent*  that   neither
Premier McBride, nor his attorney general.   Mr.  Bowser,   have
been either' frank or   sincere in
their attitude on this question as
they have been

questions of a public nature.
"As is pointed out in the excellent report of Mackenzie King,
the origin of the influx of Japanese into the province of British
Columbia during 1907 began with
the advent of Sauri Gotoh. This
gentleman had a wide experience
in supplying labor to American
railways. He had furnished men
to the Oregon Short Line, Union
Pacific,Southern Pacific and Northern Pacific. In 1901 he came
from Tacoma to Vancouver and
established a connection with the
Canadian Pacific. He succeeded
in effecting an agreement with
that company similiar to the agreement between railway companies and Japanese contractors
across the line.    The
Agreement Was Prepared by Bowser
between Gotoh aud the Canadian
Pacific. Mr. Bowser was then acting for Gotoh. This agreement
was renewed from time to time
until finally in   December,   19i)(>.
Greenwood's victorious curlers
yesterday brought back from the
bonspiel just about all the silverware and cut-glass they could
handle. W. G. McMynn's rink
took both the Grand Challenge
cup and the Association cup and ]
with each of these, there are pre-
eented four individual prizes,
which are retained by members
of the rink. The cups return for
competition next year.
Dill's ririk captured one of the
most envied prizes of the bonspiel
consisting of four large pieces of
silver mounted cut-glass—a biscuit jar, a cake dish, a fruit dish,
and water pitcher—all presented,
as the Walkerville prize by H.
Walker, Walkerville, Ont. The
individual prizes with the Grand
Challenge are four silver mounted
eut-glasR decanter stands given
by G. P. Wells, Strathcona Hotel, Nelson. One of these goes to
each member of McMynn's rink.
Four • very handsome tobacco
pieces go with the Association
cup and are the donation of J. O.
Patenaude, Nelson. Some of the
members of the rink who neither
smoke or imbibe of "the flowing
bowl are said to bet afraid to take
the prizes home. They are now

To the Editor ov The Times:
In order to correct an erroneous
impression that seems to prevail
in certain quarters in this community, respecting the stand taken by this Union regarding the
ineffiency of its individual
members, Greenwood Miner's Union No 22, W.F.M. takes this opportunity to define its position in
this matter ; namely, this Union
does not in any way either by
word or exam pie encourage inefficiency or shirking by its mem»-
beTS of the duties to which they
are assigned, and further, disclaims responsibility for the . acts
of individuals.
Regarding the suggestion also
rumored that there at present exists some slight constraint aad
antagonism between the Smelter
Co. and this Local, we wish to emphatically-con trad ict,and ridicule
such an absurd misapprehension.
The works closed down, the men
perforce quit work,and since then
nothing has been done or said between the B.C. Copper Co. and
this Local.
R. A. Matheison, Sec.
Gotoh organized the Canadian
Nippon Supply Company,Limited
and a similar agreemsnt to «bat
prepared by Bowser was entered
into between the Canadian Nippon
Supply Company and ihe C.P.R.
and also the Wellington Coiliery
Company. As I want the House
to be in possession of the nature
of this agreement, I am eoing to
place it on Hansard."
Mr. Ross then read the agreement and continued:
"I want the House also to keep
in mind that
Gotoh Was the Client of W. J. Bowser
and that W. J. Bowser prepared
that original agreement."
Mr. Ross then read at length
the Colonist's report of Premier
McBride's speech oil the day before the election in B.G. and the"
famous roorbach. in the Province J
about the employing of Japanese
labor by the G.T.P., the significance of which be explained.
Continuing he said:
The hockey match between the
"sevens" of Phoenix and Green-
wood' last Monday^ flight provided
an exhibition of good, fist,  and
reasonably clean hockey.   Up till
half time, the Locals  in spite of
the fact that  their  ranks  were
broken four times, while they were
unable to put the elusive rubber
between the posts at all, put up a
pretty fair fight.    In the second
half, the visitors   weakened   and
towards the end of Lhe game only
the exceptionally  good ' work of
Biner,   the   Phoenix goaikee*>er,
prevented the evening up of the
score.   The  play  for  the   last
quarter was kept pretty cl->selv
in Phoenix territory.   The home
team stood four penalties at the
hands of Referee Chas. Summers,
whose indulgence toward the visitors was to say the least of it,
very  like" Charlie,   exceedingly
generous    The score was 4-i in
favor of Phoenix.

It is -with a great deal of pleasure tbat the times publishes in  another column of tbis issue the  communication from tbe Greenwood Miners' Union regarding the  efficiency of'its members and the  feeling existing between them and  the B.C. Copper company. It is a  statement that will interest every  one desirous of the welfareof thia  community.  It is not our intention now or  at anv time to probe the past for  what that holds. The editor of  this paper frankly confesses that  he knows practically nothing  about what has been the history  of the relations between the labor  organizations and the copper companies in this district. But facing  the situation as it is before us  now, the letter referred to above  bas the right ring. And if the  Union will continue to exhibit  that spirit and the copper companies will maintain the frank and  straightforward policy that has  characterized Mr. McAllister's  dealing with the circumstances  that caused the shut-down, there  should be very little trouble in  building up in Greeawuod a mining industry with ideal or nearly  conditions. And.it is claimed by  those near to the counsels of tbe  B.C. .Copper Co., that if such  conditions are obtained, the executive of that organization will  prove themselves not only fair  but benevolent administrators.  Referring to these things, from  a personal standpoint we have  been told that there is too Much  sentiment and not enough business in our view of the way in  which a man should regard his  work. That. is. that it is not  practical enough. But sentiment  is not impractical; on the contrary,  it is one of the most practical  things in the w.orld. Nothing"  more vitally affects what you accomplish in the work you are doing than the way you feeL in regard to it. It is because of this  that keen businessmen constantly  advise young men to seek out the  kind of work, they will most enjoy and refuse to encourage a  young man however capable he  may. be to remain in their employ  unless he can and does like his  work. It is on this ground then  that we are inclined to favor the  desire in the present situation, to  have the men look upon their employers as their friends rather  than as their enemies.  WHY BOWSER  BILL FAILED  (Concluded from page 1)  "The Province of the same  evening has an editorial in which  it commends W. J. Bowser for  drawing the attention of the public to the efforts of the McBride  government to prevent the influx  of cheap Japanese labor into this  country. He was also commended  for further warning the public regarding a contract entered into by  the Grand Trunk Pacific for a  supply of Japanese labor and the  Province 'intimated this contract  would be made effective if the McBride government were defeated  and the Liberals returned to power.'  ���'The editorial of the Province  concludes in the following words:  'Mr. Bowser's warning therefore  to the people of British Columbia  Liberal party did uot carry a seat  in Vancouver, although up to the  time this article ^as published it  was confidently espectedi by L ib-  erals that they would carry the  five seats in the city of Vancouver  and prominent Conservatives admitted that at least three of the  Liberal candidates , would have  been elected. Wherever the Province got this information', so far  as the G.T.P. railway was concerned, the report of Mackenzie  King conclusively proves that  there was ,  Not a Shadow of a Vestitre of, Truth  in the statement of the Province.  "The report of the Colonist  states that; details of this information were given by W. J. Bowser in a speech delivered in the  city ot Vancouver. The~Vancouver Province is the organ of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, a corporation which had entered into  a contract with Gotoh or the  Canadian Nippon Supply Company for Japanese labor. The  agreement entered into was prepared by W. J. Bowser.  "Then we have this suggestion  that W. J. Bowser, Conservative  candidate in the city of Vancouver, the present attorney-general  in the McBride government, solicitor for Gotoh, draughtsman of  the Gotoh agreement, goes to the  Vancouver Province, organ of the  C.P.R.,the night immediately before the general election, attaches  the Gotoh agreement (which he  himself had drawn up and which  had been entered into by the CP.  R.) to the United Construction  & Supply Company of Prince  Rupert, a purely mercantile concern, and tells the "people of British Columbia that under this agreement the Grand Trunk Pacific  is going to bring in 50,000 Japs.  "You can search the annals of  Canadian history, Mr. Speaker,  and you cannot find another instance to equal this for  Cold Blooded Mendacity.  The question of professional  ethics involved,I leave to the consideration of the lawyers of the  House. I ask them^if it is in accordance with best traditions of  the profession that a lawyer  should use information of his  client that could come to him in  no other way for the purpose  which I have mentioned.  "There has been a" suggestion  that legislation should be introduced making the publication of  election roorbachs: of this description a political offence. If such  legislation could have been made  effective in British Columbia, I  have no hesitation in saying that  W. J. Bowser, the new attorney-  general of the province, would be  mulcted in heavy penalties.  "Let us trace briefly the results  ol the contracts pf which W. J.  Bowser was the author and finisher. In an interesting table prepared by Mackenzie King, which  is published on page 11 of his report, it is demonstrated that outside of the Japanese which arrived iu Vancouver under the  Contracts Prepared by VV- J. Bowser  that only 290 arrived in the province of British Columbia during  the ten months in 1907, a number  far less than the limit allowed  under the arrangement between  this government aud the government of Japan.  "Or putting it another way, if  there had been no Japs brought  in under the Gotoh agreement  prepared by W. J. Bowser, there  would have been no Japanese disturbance in British Columbia last  year.  "Let us go further into the in  side history of the career of the  illustrious W. J. Bowser. During  the general elections to which  have referred, he claimed a good  deal of credit for the McBiide  government for having time and  time again introduced legislation  in the local legislature which had  for its object the uUer prohibition of Oriental immigration into  the province of British Columbia  legislation had al-  on April 2nd, 1907, he introduced  a pleasure in the local legislature  which will go down to history as  the Bowser bill.  "Tbe enacting clause of this  bill reads as follows:  ''The immigration into British  Columbia of any person w ho  when asked to do so by the officer  appointed, under this act shall  fail himself to write but and sign  in the English language or any  language in Europe, au application to the provincial secretary'of  the province of British Columbia,  to the, effect of the form1 setout in  schedule "B" to this act annexed,  ae well as read in English,of any  language of Europe, any test submitted to him by the officer appointed under this act, shall be  lawful*"  "It sounds alright, Mr.Speaker,  I will read it again.  .   Mr. Ross re-read the clause and  continued:  "It may still sound alright to'  the hon. members of the House.  I will now eliminate all the verbiage with which it is surrounded  andt'he intent of the legislation  is found in these words :  . "I shall be lawful fpr any one  who can not read and write in  English or in any European language to enter the province of  British Columbia."  "While we may not all agree  as to whether the honorable the  leader ��f the opposition is a great  ieader of a party, I think members on both sides of, the House  will admit that in committe work,  in picking out weak places in legislation, in drafting amendments  to cover these deficiencies that  there is no abler member iu the  House, and I will ask him if this  clause is not  So Cleverly Drawn  that' an ordinary mortal would  have passed it without discovering its defect, unless it was very  carefully dissected. It passed the  scrutiny of Mr. J. A. Macdonald,  the leader of the opposition in  the provincial legislature, than  whom there is no brighter or abler  lawyer in the province. After  the defect was discovered it was  thought that it was a lapsus linguae aud nothing worse, but taking into consideration the facts  that I haye given to this House,  facts which were not then known,  it can be readily seen that W.J.  Bowser had a very strong motive  in drafting-this bill, so that if  it ever became law, it should  prove contradictory in its language and nugatory in its effect.  He knew of the Gotoh contracts.  He knew of the contracts entered  into by the Nippon Supply Co.  There were contracts made between his clients and his powerful political ally, the Canadian  Pacific Railway Co. If the bill  which he introduced in the.legislature was passed and received  the assent'of the Lieut-Governor,  it would become law and once it  became law, the. Gotoh contracts  could not be carried out.    But he  had to make some effort to carry  put his pre-election promises, and  he-therefore drafted a measure  very cleverly, which even if it  should become law, could not be  made effective.  "The first thing he had to do*  was to    ���     '   -���  Protect the Gotoh Contracts.  His next object was to show the  people of British Columbia that  if Lieutenant-Governor Dunsjnuir  refused his assent to .the measure,  thatthe Lieutenant-Governor had  been appointed by the Liberal  government here, and was-anoth-  er illustration of the hostility of  the local party to any effort made  to restrict oriental immigration.

And on* the 25th  of April'the legislature .was prorogued, and Mr. Dunsmuir reserved his assent to the Bowser Bill.  . ��� "Now, Sir, Mr.McBrideis busy  repudiating any responsibility  for the action of tbe Lieut.-Gov-  ernor. He takes the position in  the local iHc-use, according  to newspaper reports, that Mr.  '^'unsmiliT-^iS'. the, agent of the  . of the Dominion government and  that his government cannot be  held responsible for/any- of his  Actions, ' But I wish to ask if he  knew nothing regarding what he  intended to ido," how could he inform the honourable the secretary  of state* as to the, position he  Lieutenant-Governor intended to  take, seven days before the Lieut.  Governor took action, and one  day before the. bill even received  its second reading in the House ?  So you see that while the Liberal  party are receiving a great deal  of blame from Conservatives oi  British Columbia for their action  in connection with this matter;  the leaders of the Conservative  party in the province of British  Columbia were guilty of  Mendacity and Trickery  in connfection'^ with ; |legislation  which they tbemsel ves introduced. I am not here to defend' the  action of the Lieut; ��� Governor of  ' the Province of British Columbia,  but I am bound to say thai there  is a marked difference between  his   course  and that  of his two  most important advisors. I have  no hesitation in saying here, aud  now so far as his refusal to give  his assent to the Bowser'Natal  ,Act was concerned, that if he is  blame at all his blame is not to be  com**ar<"^ with that <which ou^ht  to be accorded Messrs. McBride  and Bowser. I do not believe  that Mr. Dunsmuir signed, this  contract of his own accord without somebody advising him, aad  if the truth'were known I think  it would be found out that about  that Jime there was a  Brilliant and Moiern Macbiavelli  of the W. J. Bowser stripe at his  elbow. Because of the fact that  the Lieut-Governor had signed  a contract of this kind made it  much easier to successfully carry  out a scheme of political trickery  the facts in connection with which  ���I have endeavored to make clear  to the House."  Mr. Ross, continuing, pointed  out that since the King investigation the Dominion government  passed an order in council absolutely prohibiting Japanese immi  gration from the Hawaiian Islan-  dus, that under arrangements  made by Hon. Mr. Lemieux in  Japan no contract labor could  leave there without the consent  of the"Dominion government and  consequently that txo Japanese  could be brought into this country  under Gotoh contracts, and therefore Mr. Bowser no longer had  any incentive to protect Gotoh interests by introducing a  Nueatbry Natal Act  in legislature.  To endanger, the diplomatic settlement; made with Japan, to still  further keep up the .political turmoil now that the question was  satisfactorily settled he introduces a properly drafted Natal Act  into the legislature.  In view of the facts which he  had given he trusted that the  members of the legislature would  refuse to be further buncoed by  W. J. Bowser, and that they  would so act as to forever make  it impossible for him to continue  the agitation against a sound and  wise diplomatiCsettlement of an  exceedingly dangerous question.

It  is taken from the Montreal correspondence to the' Monetary  Times :  "Electrification will, no doubt,  come in due course, but the chief  difficulty we have to face is the'  storage of electricity in the Itigh-  r altitudes, wherethe mountain  creeks are frozen.
