Leader Macdonald and Local
Candidate Address Large
Liberal Party Will Not Consider a Grant for the .Grand
Trunk Pacific
The Liberal rail*; in the opera house
lout Friday night was the bent attended during the present campaign, the
house being crowded to its fullest
capacity. P. T. McCalluin acted as
The first speaker of the evening was
H. W. Gregory, the Liberal-Labor
candidate for this riding. He favored
a progressive immigration policy. . jt
would have been infinitely bettni to
have reserved the 800,000 acres given
the C. P. K. for actual settlers. He
proved that he had a perfect right to
run as a Liberal-Labor candidate.
The broken pledges of McBride to the
southeast Kootenay coal locators he
characterized as the most disgraceful
act of the government. He read the
resolution passed by the executive of
the Conservative association on this
subject, and also Mr. McBride's preelection pledges. Suoh treachery
should not be allowed to go unpunished. He asked the support of the
electors as a Liberal-Labor candidate.
Any legislation brought up in the
house in favor of labor would receive
his hearty support, and any measure
detrimental to the interest of the laboring men would be opposed by him.
E. Miller, the Conservative candi-
• date, followed. Contrary to reports,
he said, he intended to reside in Grand
Forks. He believed the'government
had been honest in their convictions
in dealing with the southeast Koote
nay coal lands, although he did not
agree with them on this point. He
belittled the efforts of the Grand
Forks locators in their endeavors to
secure justice. Like all Conservative
and Socialist speakers, he appeared to
lie very much worried over the title
of the Liberal-Labor candidate. He
also spoke briefly on the eigh-hour
question, promising to support it if
elecited. On the Midway k Vernon
fiasco he did not agree with the government. There might be a great
blame attached to the admisistration
for ruining this enterprise. Later in
the evening he made a public apology
I'i F. J. Deane for having made u
false statement concerning that gentlemen at Phoenix the previous evening.
Mr. Hiilsev, Socialist, of Phoenix,
amused the audience for a few minutes with his merry-andrew actions
and by jumping around the stage like
a rooster with his head cut off From
what could be pierced from his disconnected sentences, he favored the tC. k
W. steal and the entrance of labor
unions into politics. He also indulged in u tirade against The Suu for
opposing foreign agitators coming
here and telling the electors Imw to
F.J. Deane said that the manly way
in which Mr. Gi'egory hnd faced the
audience had greatly impressed him.
It wus the first time he had heard a
Socialist  speaker attempt to defend'or whether the 0. P. R. wa» to govern
Hawthornthwaite. The inference to
be deduced was that the Socialist
members tn the house had voted conscientiously to exempt the C. P. R.
lands from taxation and to give away
800,000 acres of land. The C. k W.
contract with the government had
not been carried out, therefore the
company was not entitled tn the land
Had the exempted railway lands lieen
taxed, the government could have
raised enough revenue without overtaxing the poor man. The Midway
and Vernon enterprise and lieen ruined
because of Finance Minister Tatlnw's
meddling interference. If he had not
interfered the road would have been
built, and the workmen and merchants
who furnished supplies would, have
been paid. He had never known'a
worse case of treachery than that
handed the Grand Porks eoal locators
by the McBride government, and Can
didute Miller was tr ing to hand them
another gold brick. There was no
connection between the Liberal party
and the Grand Trunk Pacific. On
the other hand, the McBride government hod mode every effort lo cultivate tho friendship of this company.
The government had sold the finest
harbor on the Pacific coast for $10,-
000. In conclusion Mr. Deane urged
the electors* to vote for Gregory ond
an honest government.
Mr. J. A. McDonald's appearance
Was greeted with a round of applause.
The Liberals appealed for the support
of ihe electors because they would
give British Columbia a good government. Mr. McDonald wanted to
know to what party Mr. Miller belonged. He had disagreed with Mc*
Bride on every subject he had taken
up. He was surely not a Conservative. He was an apologist for what
the government had done in the past,
and would be an ardent snpporter of
it in the future. He was just the
kind of a man to do whatever McBride
wanted him to do ' Mr. Halsey also
disagreed with his leader. Mr. Halsey had said that Hawthornthwaite
had voted for the C. k W. land grant
because he did not believe in repudiation. If Mr. McDonald understood
Socialism aright, the first principle of
its doctrine was repudiation. However, he had never heard two Socialists explain their doctrine alike. The
speaker then explained the C. k. W
land grant. The member for Grand
Forks had voted for the grant. Mr.
Miller would have done the same hod
he been in the house. The two were
always together, and their ideas generally coincided. The government had
raised its revenue by' increasing the
taxation 4(1 per cent on land and 100
per cent on personul property. Hod
the government, collected the taxes on
the railway lauds it would not have
been necessary to inererse the taxes
on the poor man's property one cent.
The abortive School Act had saddled
un additional taxation of another
8100,000 on the people. The eoal locations appeared to lie a burning question in this city. McBride had not
done justice to the coal men. If the
Liberals were successful they wonld
see that justice was done by allowing
them a petition of rights. The government had done nothing to assist in
opening up the undeveloped sections
of the province, and the only railway
policy that McBride had was to assist
the Canadian Pacific railway, which
was a great menace to the liberties of
the people of the province. The people would have to decide whether the
province was to govern the C. P. R.,
the province. The people had waited
for three weeks or more to learn whether the report circulated as to the
cause of Green's resignation was true
or not. If true, the people must rise,
and will rise, on February 2nd against
the government. He had that day
received a telegram from McBride
laying that the 8*"i7,O00 worth of coal
■itock hail lieen given Green as an act
of friendship. He was of the opinion
that that transaction wus the cause of
Green's resignation. But why had
Wilson resigned? It had always lieen
customary to give the people some
reason for the act when a cabinet
minister resigned. A year had elapsed and the people did not know
yet. They had a right to know before
they sent McBride back to power,
Mr. Macdonald then took up the
Kaien island deal. McBride had said
it was a good and legitimate bargain
McBride hod said he dealt directly
with the Grand Trunk Pacific, yet six
weeks after he claims to have sold the
lands to the railway company Bowell
and Anderson were in Montreal bargaining with the company. McBride
said it was a good deal, yet before the
end of the present year one lot in
Prince Rupert will bring more than
he got for 10,000 acres. An Indian
chief in near Prince Rupert had sold
some of his land to the Grand Tiunk
Pacific for 87 per acre. It would
have been a good thing for the province if that Indian chief had been
commissioner of lands and works instead of Green. Mr. Macdonald stated that at the last session it had been
agreed that the question of better
terms should lie raised above party
politics, and that he himself had pre*
pared the petition that McBride had
taken to Ottawa. Yet McBride had
never given him any credit for this.
On this question the premier had simply ruled himself out of court by his
eagerness to secure an election issue
while at the convention.
Mr. Halsey asked how Mr. Macdonald stood on railway bonuses. M
Macdonald replied that the Grand
Trunk Pacific had already received
sufficient aid from the government,
and that he was opposed to giving
bonuses to the big trunk lines; In the
cases of small independent pioneer
roads, however, instances might arise
where it would be odvicublo to aid
them. To illnstrate this, he cited the
Kettle Valley line and the Midwey k
In conclusion, Mr. Macdonald urged
the electors to vote for the Liberal-
Labor candidade. The Liberal party
had always been willing to co-operate
with the workingmen; in fact, the
bulk of the party was composed of
Workingmen. Socialism was a fad,
and would die out as all fads had.
After Mr. Macdonald had finished
speaking three cheers and a tiger were
given for the leader of the party and
Liberal-Labor candidate. The Grand
Forks band was present, and rendered
some good selections before and after
the s[leaking.
The Mud Throwers
The Rosslnnd Minor, in the face of
denials from scores of those present
at the meeting and from Mr. Mclnnes
himself, says that W. W. B. Mclnnes,
when speaking in llosslaiul, stated
that the Liberal party did not want
the support of the labor vote. Is the
Miller a fooll Or does it think everybody else is!. A leader of the Liberal
party, the bulk of which is formed of
workingmen, is hardly likely to make
such  an  idiotic  assertion,   especially
when his own party chief, in his pub
lished manifesto, lays dows as one of
bis chief planks: No alliance with re
y jlutinnists who would destroy our
system of government and haul duwn
our Hag; but, on the contrary, co operate with that great body of labor
which would reform abuses in a con
stitutional way." What Mr. Mclnnes
did say, in - substance, was that the
Libeluls would not attempt to gain or
hold otlice save by the votes of those
elected to support them, bo they
straight Liberal or Labor-Liberal
Such a statement is a manly one. It
is not at all strange that it is especial
ly galling to the apologist of a govern
ment that holds office only by an alliance with revolutionary Socialists who
were not elected to support it.—Nel

Liberal Party Has Always Ad-
vocated the Cause of the
Department of Labor and Immigration to Be. Formed*
If Party Is Successful
Joe   Waugh   returned   last  night
from a business trip to Spokane.
The Liberal party has always stood
for the cause of labor. Throughout
the history of the party this has beet,
true, and the provincial Liberal organization, led by J. A. Macdonald, is
but true to the traditions of the great
party of reform and Liberalism in its
assurances that a department of labor
and immigration will be created when
the party assumes power. In view of
this, it is hut natural thnt the labor
interests of the province have, with
very few: exceptions, seen fit to endorse the candidature of the Liberal
In the city of Victoria, however, a
section of the labor interests have
seen fit to nominate candidates—Dr.
E. A. Hall and A. Johnsun That a
large part of the workingmen do not
approve of this course and would prefer to join with the Liberals, as wa
done in the cose of Esquimalt, is well
known, and an idea prevailed right up
to the hour of nomination that something would be done to give the umli
vided vote to the labor interests to
the Liberal party.
In view of this it did not come as
any great surprise to the executive of
the Liberal party in Victoria when
one, who claimed to be clothed with
authority to act, waited upon the
members and announced that Dr.
Hall would be open to discuss the
question of a union of forces. The
members of the executive believed the
messenger was acting for the Liberal
interests represented. The Liberal
executive, ready to act in the best interests of the party, and still further
strengthen a winning cause, finally
decided to accede to what was represented to them as a readiness to discuss the question of union.
Dr. Hall was communicated with
at the instance of the gentleman who
was supposed to bo acting for him.and
it was arranged to meet Dr. Hall to
discuss the question.
Nothing resulted from the meeting,
however, and Dr. Hall and Mr. Johnson remained in the field. The Liberal executive made no move in tho
matter, and never attempted to make
overtures to the Labor party in tho
city. Ready to tako support even
from Conservatives, the Liberal executive easily conceived that the lalior
interests represented by Dr. Hall and
Mr. Johnson might be ready to join
forces with the old party of reform.
When what appeared as a bona fide
proposition for a union was made to
them they weie prepared to act. The
initiative move was not on the pnrt of
the Liberals, however, and they cannot be said to have attempted in any
but an open way to win tho labor interests to their side. Resting on the
record which tho Liberal party has
for fair dealing towards the labor interests in tho community, there is
every assurance that at the approaching election the four members who sat
in the last parliament will again lie
retuaned for Victoria. CORSIOirCO BYTIIC WNDtSCQISm

Since our lust issue hull a dozen
Socialist comedians, imported from
foreign lands, have been here, spewed
their vocabulary of slang and non-
sense, and departed without making
an Impression on the electorate. At
the Liberal meeting on Friday night
Mr. Halsey (who is not on the voter's list) drove more people away
from the Socialist ranks with his
ululatory style ot oratory and song
and-dance actions than the rest of
the speakers for that mistaken cause
can hope to regain between now and
election day. On Saturday evening
Mr. Goebcl, of New Jersey, and Candidate Mclnnis, of Phoenix, held
the boards nt the opera house. Tliere

Goebel   and   a   local   orator.      He

The Conservative candidate explained the C. & W. land grab to
his own satisfaction at the socialist
meeting Saturday night. He forgot
one important point, however. The
contract was never completed, nnd
therefore the road was not entitled
to the subsidy. If the city should
enter into a contract with a man to
drain Spokane slough,and he stopped
work after digging a ditch half-way
to the river, could he collect pay
for the section he had completed?

The bund of agitators, foreign and
loniestie, eiilwly 'ell you lhat the
socialistic revolutionary party is the
the only     thai can elevate the
condition of i'u* workingman. To
them a Innle.- unionist who cannot
Bwqllow their chimerical doctrine is
a traitor to the cause of labor. Whni
has socialism ever done, with I be
exception of breeding discontent, fnr
the wnrkinginiin? Nothing. On the
other hand, trades unionism has
wrested from capital and greed many
important victories. On the 1st day
of January, 1906, the Interiialinnnl
Typographical union, the strongest
labor organization in the world,
whose jurisdiction extends over Ihe
entire Dominion of Camdn, the
United States, the Philippines, Hawaii, Cuba, Porto Rico and Mexico,
enforced the eight-hour day in eveiy
city and town in which it has a local organization. This was done
without legislative aid from state,
province or federal government, and
without financial assistance from
outside sources. The typographical
union is great because it allows its
members to exercise their political
convictions to the fullest extent. It
even goes farther than this. It
strictly forbids any local union from
endorsing any candidate. A labor
organization might as well try to
take away a man's religious conviction as his political liberty. While
the oraganization we have cited for
bids any locaf union frotn dragging
the name of the organization into
politics, it encourages its members as
individuals to . support tandidates
friendly to the cause ot labor. In
the present struggle in this province
the laboring man's interests will hest
be served by supporting tho Liberal
cause, because the bulk of that party
is made up of workingmen. In this
riding every laborer, excepting those
who are chasing the socialistic rainbow, will vote for the Liberal-Labor
candidate next Saturday.

GRAND FORKS, B. C. A Cute Trick
It is exactly as we expected. The
article which appeared in the London
Financial News extolling the virtues
of the McBride government was inspired. Knowing the paper and
knowing the government the first
query that naturally came to mind
was, "How much would such an
article cost if one were to try to have
it inserted at advertising rates?" It
was followed by a further query,
"Who is there in London to undertake
so delecate a commission?" Suddenly
it flashed on us that R. E. Gosnell,
the press agent, who accompanied McBride to Ottawa, had gone on to London and wan in the empire's capital
when the Financial News suddenly
commenced to take an interest in B.
C. politics. Putting two and two together, we found, much to our own
surprise, that they made four. In
other words, we discovered marks of
the light Gosnell touch, so familiar
to B. C. journalists, judiciously imprinted all over the Financial News
article. The discovery we thus made
has been confirmed by the appearance,
in the Vancouver NewH-Advertiser, of
a dispatch from London giving an in
terview with K. E. Gosnell. That* in
terview traversed much the same
ground as did the article in the Financial News' Verily, the by-patha of
provincial politics as followed by Mr.
McBride et al are wonderful ,and devious in the extreme.—Nelson News.

Why Chest Colds are Dangerous
They   lead to pleurisy and poeumh
nia.      Follow  the advice of   W. H
Powles, of Powles' Corners, Ont., who
says:    "I used  to be subject  to attacks and although I used most every
thing nothing relieved quickly  till  I
discovered Nerviline.    I have used it
for pleurisy and sore chest and found
it just the thing.    For lumbago or
neuralgia it's quick as lightning.    1
cheerfully    recommend    Nerviline."
Strongest, cleanest, most pain destroying liniment on earth is Poison's Nerviline, 25o bottles sold everywhere.

Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, the following simple formula, the ingredients of
which can be obtained of any good
prescription druggist at small cost, is
all that will be required: Virgin Oil of
Pine (Puee), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hours. The de
sired results cannot be obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is
securely sealed in a round wooden case
which protects the Oil from exposure
to ljgbt. Around the wooden case is
an engaged wrapper with the name—
"Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
primed thereon. There are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.-

The Socialist Meeting
There was a good attendance at
the Socialist meeting in the opera
house Saturday evening. Thos. J.
Benninger presided, and Candidate
Mclnnis was the first speaker. lie
was followed by the Conservative
candidate. Mr. Miller wns not as
tame ns on the preceding night, when
he knew he would have been taken
to task  for nny  misstatements  lie
might make. He knew thnt the
speaker who was to follow him did
not care a rap whnt he snid, as his
mind was soaring in the clouds.
And ho took advantage of this position, and indulged in mud throwing'
to hiB heart's content. F. J. Deane
(to whom he had to make a public
apology on the preceding evening)
and J. A. McDonald weje the principle persons singled out for the favor-'
ite pastime of the government candidate. He also explained the Kaien
Island land scandal to his own satisfaction, but his version did not seem
to satisfy very many in the audience.
He endorsed the government "in its
action in the C. k W. land grant,
and had he heen a member of the
house at the time he would have
voted for it. Mr^Goebel, of New
Jersey, wound up the evening's entertainment. M. Goebel had been
heralded as an eminent Socialist. As
a calamity howler he was eminently
successful, but whenever he happened to touch on provincial politics
he showed crass ignorance. Funny
stories, an attempt at mimicry, and
a bowl against tbe successful constituted his speech. He urged the
electors.if they could not support the
Socialist candidate, to vote the Conservative ticket, demonstrating that
the unholy alliance is still in existence, and that the1 combination is
being driven to close, quarters and is
becoming desperate. At the wind-up
he showed himself to be an out and
out cur He made a slanderous attack on the Liberal-Labor candidade
simply because Mr. Gregory is a
member of the Grand Forks union
and does not believe in the Socialistic
