Clement's Platform
A Manifesto Which Will Be Heartily Supported by All Cti-
zens Having the Province's Welfare at Heart.
Fellow Electors:
At the request of tin.1 Liberal Association of this riding 1 have consented to contest the coming election in
the Liberal interest. While I personally regeet that the honor of carrying the Liberal standard to victory has
has not fallen to other and stronger
hands than mine, itiswith.no rais-
giving as to the result qhat J enter
on the campaign. I am in this battle
to win, if by strenuous straightforward fighting any political battle can
he won. I believe it pan. What is
needed is united effort on the part of
the Liberals and all others who desire
to see reform in the government of
this province.
The condition of tiie province lias
become intoltrable. Blessed by Provi-
yence with vast stores of wealth in
mines, forests, agricultural lands and
fisheries, British Columbia has had its
very good turned to evil by a long
series of personal sectional, clique governments of men who have exploited
tiie people's property for private gain.
We have a population of 177,000—
men, women and children, Indians
and Orientals—and ;i public debt of
$6,300,000, representing 835 per
head, or $176 at least for each adult
man in the province. The average
cost of government in the other provinces of Canada is about $ 2per head
per annum; with us it is seven times
greater, or $14.26 per head. In
sala.iies alone we pay more than S2 n
head, or over $370,000,
Every year we spend more than
our income, List year wewent further
into debt to tha tune of sjT^oOO;
aud Mr. Carter-Cotton, a former Conservative finance minister, says
that if the accounts of the last four
years were properly investigated it
will be found in that short 'time we
have spent $5,000,000 more than our
revenue from all .sources.
The present premier was a member
of the assembly during those four
years, and he has never protested
against the prodigal scale of expenditure, on the contrary, the very assets
from which a fund might he derived
to meet the costs of government have
been wasted. As a minister of the
Crown, .Mr. McBride was a party lo
the orders in council granting large
areas of valuable coal and petroleum
lands in Southeast Kootenay hi the C.
I*. H. -a fraud upon the legislature,
which was prevented, not by Mr. McBride, but by tiie watchful zeal of a
Liberal member. Ihe excuse given by
Mr. McBride for Ins official act in
agreeing to the grants shows that In1
is utterly unworthy U> be trusted
with the care ofthe people's property,
He took the word of a colleague that
it was all right. What guarantee
have we that another colleague will
not again hypnotize Mr. McBride into
giving oway further tracts of the
public domain '(
But when bona fide locators comply
with the law of the province, stake
coal lands according to law, and tender the price fixed by law, Mr. McBride refuses to grant the licenses
which the law says shall be granted
those who have followed the requirements of the Act. He prefers U> keep
the question dangling for partizan advantage—the last refuge of a weak
politician. Or is it that he still hopes
to "deliver the goods" to the C. P, W.i
By a piece of trickery quite in keeping with the traditions of the political
and still is associated, the honorable
premier has cut short the campaign.
It will he almost impossible for mc to
have the privilege of seeing you all
personally in the three weeks left lie-
fore the polling day. For this reason
I publish this open letter in order that
you may know where I stand on the
issues before you. It is now your
turn to take personal part in the government! of your province. Act in the
way you want your representatives in
parliament to act. Vot*; with a tingle
eye to the best interests of our common country. As the candidate of
the Liberal party, I respectfully ask
your votes »nd j'our influence to elect
me because I believe that neither at
the hands of the McBride government,
nor at the hands of theorizing Socialists, will any practical business-like
improvement upon the past misdoings take place.
The Liberals have hail no Opportunity to show their mettle in the political
arena of his province. But the administration of public affairs by a Liberal government at Ottawa since 1896
is a striking example of what Liberalism iu action means. National
unity from ocean to ocean; a loyalty
to Hritish connection evidenced in
devil instead of mere lip-loyalty; a system of taxation equal in Incidence and
in protection to home industry instead
of a system of government aid to favored manufacturers; a determined stain!
against the Oriental deluge of low-
standard civilization;an honest 'effort
to bring capital and labor into harmonious working for tho good of all;
energetic workjtoward peoplingthewest
and toward providnig adequate transport facilities; all these and whatever
else tends to the betterment of the
Canadian people are the planks of the
Liberal platform in the federal field.
The same broad ideas dominate the
Liberals of British Columbia.
I am in hearty accord with the platform and manifesto of the Liberal
party in the province. When elected,
I shall endeavor to put the principles
set forth in them into pruetice. I
shall particularly support the follow
ing principles as of immediate interest
to this riding:
1. The people's property, whether
land, tjmber, minerals or the fisheries,
should be administered for the bene
fit of the whole people, with a view to
lessening the huge burden of debt and
taxation now resting on us. Only
those who in good faith will utilize our
public property in forwarding settlement and developing our natural in
dustries should be allowed to acquire
an interest in any part of the public
'2, The mining laws should be
amended and simplified after a careful
enquiry through a competent commission. Then tinkering with them should
cease, In the develmenl stage there
should be no taxation of miners or
mining property.      Developed   mines
should hear their share of the public
burdens iu proportion to the net out-
3. No further aid in land or money
should he given by tins province to
transcontinental railway projects.
Fullest liberty should he given to the
V*, V.tfc E. Railway company to complete the construction of their line.
Although I was at one time professionally employed against that company, and did my duty, J hope, to my
lients, I am ready to support any
action which may be deemed necessary
to place beyond any doubt the rightof
the V., V. it E, to build their con
templated line throught to the Pacific
coast. In reference to tin? North-and-
South lines   through   the   valleys   of
British Columbia, I should support
government construction, with tin'
idea of leasing tin? completed lines as
feeders to the through lines on such
terms as will keep the province in control of passenger and freight rates and
secure a rental sufficient to pay the
interest on the cost of conrtruction.
4. The province should set the example of obedience to its own laws.
if under our statutes individuals have
acquired right in the public domain,
such rights should he at once transferred to them.
The course of the government in
reference to the coal lands of Kootenay shows that in their opinion we
are governed, not be law, but by their
whim as influenced by the count of
voters' noses,
I have the honor to be your mosi
obedient servant,
William 11. P, Clement.
The British Columbia Electric Kail-
way Company is to be heartily congratulated on the system it has recently inaugurated in dealing with it-
employees. Last week the company,
through its manager, J. Buntzeii, of
Vancouver, handed each employee ;'
cheek for $25, winch represented the
men's proportion of the net earning-
over a four-percent dividend made by
the company during the fiscal year.
The sum of $7,100 was thus disbursed
among 284 men employed on the com
pany's lines in Vancouver, New Wesfc-
minster and Victoria.
The company has more than 1,000
men working, bub only 284 worked
steadily one year up to June 30th,
1903, and to participate in this dividend they must lie iu the employ of
the company one year.
If tills system was followed by all
the large corupanys and corporations
in the west, who employ labor extensively it would tend to a great degree
to do away with strikes aud other
disturbances between employees and
employers, The men would feel that
they had an interest iu the welfare of
their employers, and would naturally
strive to advance their interests,
knowing they would participate in the
profits over and above a fair interest
on capital invested: It is to be hoped
many other large concerns will follow
the good example of the B. C. Electric
Tbe staunch est friends of the V.,
V. it E. among tho solid citizens ol'
Grand Forks are supporting Clement,
lie pledges himself tosupport whut-
ever legislation U necessary to place
beyond a shadow of doubt its right
to build to the coast.
A house divided against itsolf cannot stand. Every forecast shows
that the interior is going to send a
strong, united Liberal delegation to
Victoria to compel a change of heart
on tiie part of the political clique at
tiie coast. Grand Forks simply
cannot afford to he at variance with
the rest of the interior. If we really
want reforms that will help the
mining districts, we of the mining
districts must stick together. Elect
('lenient and Grand Forks will he as
strongly represented in the House as
any constituency in the province.
The (lazette prints a list of Acts
passed in this province which it
credits to the Conservative government at Victoria. As a matter of
fact, these Acts are nearly all copied
from Liberal legislation in Ontario.
But notice the admission. The Conservatives were in power and passed
these Acts, it is claimed. Then who
should nmv he held responsible
for the bungling, incompetent government, the civil service extravagance, the stagnation of the mining
industry, the debt of $6,300,000,
tho annual deficit of $750,000? The
Gazette is right. The provincial
government of the past has hecn a
Conservative government, and you
will get the same government in the
future, it you wfcet the Conservative
candidates. A vote for Fraser is a
vote for the "old gang." the old
lack of policy and the old deficit,
The electors of th's constituency
know that the people of British Columbia have been for years "agin
the government." Discontent with
conditions al Victoria has been  the
universal feeling. The electorate has
simply been waiting for a chance to
oust the men who have hecn responsible for these conditions. Now
its chance has come. The McBride
government cannot stand tin1 storm.
The interior in particular will assert
itself. See that Grand Forks is in
the forefront of the movement for
new men and new methods. Fleet
Warn your friends lo look but for
false telegrams, false reports anil
false issues just before election. Clement is carrying ou his campaign
in full daylight in the open air.
Tin-Senate at Ottawa divided on
party lines on the Chinese-$500 tax.
The Conservatives opposed it in a
body, and the Liberals voted it
Why is it that even good Conservatives among thc old settlers of tho
valley are supporting Clement? It
is a fact; and their confidence in
the Liberal candidate as a friend of
the district is well placed.
The candidate who has to he
helped with "road money" loses the
respect of even the government thai
supplies it. His influence with tbem
is nil; and he is under .an obligation
to them that distroys his independence. Vote for Clement, who will
go to Victoria independent of any
one but the el-  t<Ms«f (irand Forks.
There is not a Liberal of any
standing in tbe constituency who is
not heartily supporting Clement's
Little Irene Haverty is laid up with

Vote for Clement and show your
approval of a daylight campaign.
BECAUSE of the three candidates he is tho strongest man, and
will make the most efficient representative]
BECAUSE he is independent of cliques and is free to represent
his constituents, Liberals and Conservatives alike.
BECAUSE tli'1 Interior needs strong, united representation at
the Coast, and the election of the Liberal candidates in the
great majority of Interior districts is assured.

Who is responsible for the deception that has been practiced Upon
the people of (Irand Forks? We
have been solemnly assured that Mr,
McBride would come to us and
make in public, the promises that
have been attributed to bim as to the
coul lands and tin' North Fork railway, lint thc day of election is
upon us; McBride has not appeared.
Who is responsible? is it Mr.
Fraser that bus misled us? Or is it
.Mr. Goodove that has deceived Mr.
Fraser? Or is it Mr. McBride that
has deceived Mr. (loodevc, Mr.
Fraser and us all ?
In any case, the electors who are
interested in these matters have good
reason to complain. We havethe
right to learn the government policy
From the goverment itself. Tbe people know that when a government intends to keep its promises, it does
not whisper them in back-alley conversations.
What is to he gathered from the
fact that Mr. McBride has not ful-
tilled the promise made that he
would speak here?
Simply lids: That he will not bind
himself to the coal locators to give them
their licenses', and he trill not hind himself In thr people of Grand Forks to assist the railway up the North Fork.
These are campaign promise only;
made to be broken. They are not
made in such a way that the government is hound in the least. If you
vote for Fraser on any such grounds
ns these, you will be sadly disappointed. Mr. McBride will have
collected the price but he will forget to deliver the goeds.
There is another interesting thing
about this. II' Mr. Fraser has so
little influence with McBride thai
be cannot get even bis public promise before election, what chance is
there that he could get the licenses
afterwards, even if the government
should be returned I
The Fair Wage Clause is imposed by the Liberal government at
Ottawa not only on the Grand Trunk
Pacific, but on every railroad now
obtaining Dominion charters. This
clause shuts out Chinese and Jap-
ancso laborers from railroads incorporated by the Liberals. T.he Conservative government at Victoria
huve refused lo adopt the fair wage
clause iis a condition of public eon-j ];;,.,..,] candidiit
tracts of any kind.
should rememberthathifichicf oficrtcr
in the eyes ol' the Conservatives of
llritish Columbia wns passing thc
eight-hour law. Half their hatred
of .loo Martin is hatred of the eight-
hour law. If Mr. Martin's sins of
nil kinds are to bo saddled on the
Liberal party, they nrent least partially balanced by ibis Art. which
no sane man in the province today
would venture to attack.
if labor wishes to be strongly
represented at Victoria, it can do so
by united action. Rossland, Nelson and Ymir labor arc solid behind
the Liberal candidates. What good
can it do labor to send Mr. Fraser
as a Conservative member from hereto help kill tbeir votes? ('lenient is
sound on all questions affecting labor and unionism, Vote for Clement.
Mr, Riordan has done what he set
out to do. He has placed thc labor question and the Socialist ideal
before the electors. If they are not
convinced, he has made them think.
That is the limit of the usefulness
of his campaign, even from the Socialist point of view. His friends
admit he cannnot be elected. Then
why should Mr. Riordan or any
other Socialist or labor man throw
away his vote. Of tho other two
candidates, Mr. Clement is most in
sympathy with labor movements,
and will make tbe best representative of labor, ns of all classes. For
every labor man it now becomes n
choice, not between Mr. Riordan
and the other candidates, but between Mr. Clement nnd Mr. Fraser.
In other constituencies labor endorses the Liberal candidates. Labor men here will act most in hu'r-
mony with labor men elsewhere if
they cast their ballots for ('lenient.
With all good citizens, n campaign
of secret slander should condemn
itself. It is n simple fact the insinuations that have been made ngainsl
Mr. Clement, were started almost n
year ago for a purpose which i^ wi li
known and fully understood. It is
also a fact that not one of the men
who have made them lies ever had
thc courage to assume responsibility
for them. All through the campaign Mr. Clement has in' bis
slanderers to com-.- upon the platform and discuss tbem in I
ence ns a campai ru issue. Vet not

even to whisper them in Mr. Clement's present ■■■ The n nson is plain.

passenger from the east was the private car Earnscliil'e. On board was
Win. White, assistant to the president
of the C. P. 11., accompanied by J.
F. Dennis, land commissioner for
Hritish Columbia. The statement is
given out that Mr. White is on a
tour of inspection. But it seems singular, at least, that each time a "party
of Great Northern magnates arrive
in this district, a number of C. P. It.
ollieials make their appearance at the
same time. It was called a coincidence on their last trip, hut surely
there must he more significance than a
"coincidence" in this second collision.
It looks as if they were watching each

each is afraid the other will gain some
advantage in the territory which both

To the Electors of Hritish Columbia,:
At a Liberal convention, Held at the
city of Vancouver, on the 6th and
7th of February, 1902, the following
platform was adopted:
1. The immediate redistribution
of the ConstituenCes of the province
on a^basis of population, but allowing
a smaller unit of population per seat,
for the outlying districts.
2. Government ownership, Dominion, Provincial and Municipal, of
public services or utilities is sound,
and should be carried out in British
3. Should it be advisable at any
time to grant aid to a railway company, such shall be in cash, and not in
land, and no bonus of any kind shall
be given without definite and effective
means being taken to safeguard the
interests of the province in the management of the road, control the
freight and passenger rates, and provision made against such railway having liability against it, except actual
•1. Immediate construction of the
Coust-Kootenuy railway; the Cariboo
railway; the extension of the Island
railway; a railway from Alberni to a
point on the east coast of Vancouver
Island, and a road in the northern
part of the province, from the coast to
the eastern boundary, with an extension to the northern boundary; the
railway from Vernon to Midway by
the West Fork of the Kettle river,
with all necessary branch lines, ferries
and connections.
0. The enforcement of the Act now
on the statute book compelling the
scaling of logs by government sealers.
6. That such legislation should be
enacted as will result in making the
lands included in the various dyking
areas available for cultivation as
quickly as possible aud secure p.iompt
payment of assessments when due.
7. That the government should
keep in touch with the conditions in
connection with mining, protecting
that industry against combines and
trusts, and, if necessary, foi* that purpose build and operate smelters and refineries. No radical change should be
made in the mining laws, with ait full
notice to all parties interested, giving
full opportunity for discussion and
8. As the province can only advance by the settlement within its
borders of thrifty and prposerous
citizens, and as Orientals never become citizens in any propea sense of
the word, we declare it to be the duty
of the government to discourage Oriental immigration and employment by
every means within its power, and we
appeal to our fellow Liberals through'
out the Dominion to aid us in our efforts to protect ourselves against the
ruinous competition of men having a
standard of decency and comfort immensely below that of civilized people,
and who shirk every duty and obligation of citizenship which the law will
allow them to escape.
i). The government ought to, prevent the waste and Buffering caused by
sirikes and lockouts, and an earnest
effort ought to be made lo provide
some means for preventing such
strikes and lockouts, anil we approve
of the adoption of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the province stands in need of revision, Taxation should bear upon privilege rather
than upon industry, and no addition
should be made to the debt of the
province, except for public works
properly chargeable to capital.
11. The retaining of the resources of
the province, OS an asset for the benefit
ofthe people, and taking effective mens
ures to prevent the alienation of the
dublio domain, except to actual settlers, or for bona liile business of industrial   purpose-^, putting au  end to

the practice of speculation in  connection therewith.
12. The construction and maintenance of roads throughout the province, to aid in the development ofthe
mining and agricultural districts.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; hut the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.
