Sixth Year-No. 26
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, February 1, 1907
Semi-Weekly—$1.00 Fer Year In Advance
H. W- Gregory  Stands for an Honest Provincial Government
The Conservatives of the eity are
great bluffers—that's nil. They
know their candidate is defeated already, nnd Imve raised the cry,
"vole fur Miller or the Socialists
will |P't in." This is ridiculous, because there is really no-dlfference
between the two parties. Both voted
in the last house to give away the
people's lands and to exempt C.P.R.
lands from taxation; to increase the
burden of taxation on the poor man,
and both attempt to justify the
Kaien island land deal. What the
Tories'are really afraid of is that the
Liberal-Labor candidate will win.
And their fears are well grounded,
because the better class of society,
tho people who are opposed to a government of scandals and corruption,
as McBride's has been, and favor an
honest, business administration, will
vote for him to a man. These voters
ate not doing as much bluffing at
present as the men wbo talk through
'a whiskey or beer glass, but when
their votes are counted they will be
found recorded in tavor of the victor—H. W. Gregory.
Mr. Green dues not intend to suggest
that, had he considered it of value, he
would have kept it himself!
Mr. Goebel, the calamity howler
imported from New Jersey, spoke
in the opera nouse last night. The
meeting proved a fizzle, most of the
audience leaving the hall before it
was over. The speaker confined himself to rehashing his speech delivered
here last week, which had no bearing'on the present struggle, and to a
viturperative attack on The Sun. It
will he remembered tbat on the
former visit of this medding foreigner to the city this paper bad
the pleasure of calling him a cur for
making a vicious and uncalled-for
attack on one of our respected citi
zens. In the present instance we
simply wish to emphasize our previous remark.
Talk about quibbling! K.F. Green's
local organ, after puhlishing Mr.
Green's own admission of his aeeept-
tance nf the Caiim stuck on behalf of
Neil McKay, says that "no member
of McBride's cabinet has accepted any
stock." The technical truth contained in this statement makes the real
deception all the more culpable.
John Mcintosh was one of the promoters of the Grand Forks coal syndi
cate. The government issued bogus
licenses to that concern. Why should
Mr. Mcintosh come back to thiB city
from Seattle to work and vote for the
Conservative candidate?
In his recent speeches, says the
Nelsou News, Premier McBride has
materially changed his ground on several issues. One in particular is very
noticeable. At first, replying co the
charge that he had not collected overdue taxes from the C. P. It, for its B.
C. Southern branch, he stated emphatically that every cent owed by the
railway nad been received. But he
has changed his tune. He now no
longer * denies that the C. P. B.
owes several hundred . thousand dol
lan in tax arrears, but says that while
he has not had time to look fully into
the question he will do so as soon as
possible This is tancamount to an admission that while the people have
been been taxed at every turn, while
the province has been hard up and
while public improvements have been
refused on the score of treasury stiin
genoy, the government has allowed its
pet railway to escape the payment of
heavy obligations.
You cannot forecast the result of
the election by the amount of So
cialist talk in the continuity. One
Socialist without a vote will do as
much talking before an election as
twenty Liberals with votes.
Any wild statements that may be
sprung by the Conservatives at their
meeting tonight should be regarded
as campaign lies. The Tories in
this riding are desperate, and will
resort to anything in order to win.
Promises made by the Tories
before an election are not worth the
breath that is wasted on them. Coal
men should remember McBride's
telegram on the eve of the last provincial election. Tomorrow you
will have an opportunity to say
what should be done with a man
who violates his pledges.
Up to tho present time McBride's
only railway policy has been to aid
tho C. P. R. and to wreck the Midway its Vernon. There are a number
of victims of the latter enterprise in
this city who. will get even with the
government tomorrow.
In his explanation to the people of
British Columbia concerning his deal
with Sir Adolph Caron, R. F. Green,
says that he did not accept the stock
Caron offered him, but passed it on to
Neil McKay, remarking that be did
not consider it of much value.   Surely
The Fuel Question
For the last week or ten days the
smelters of tne Boundary have been
operating from hand to mouth, as far
is coke, coal and ore supplies are concerned. At the Granby works four
furnaces are kept in operation, while
at the R. C, Copper' and Dominion
Copper smelters but one furnace has
been in operation in each place. The
smelters are fortunate to be able to do
even that much. The trouble seems
to be with the railway companies,
which find it dilHcu t to get coal enough
to operate their trains, there being no
reserves whatever in the bunkers at
the vacious storage points. Tho supply of 20,000 tons which the C. P. It.
had on hand at Nelson and in the
Boundary when the coal miners' strike
took place last fall in East Kootenay
has long been used up, and not enough
additional received to take its place.
Doubtless she railways are using efforts to better the conditions, us it
stands them in hand to do so from
their owu viewpoint. Not only are
tho mines short of coal but the smelters are short of coke most of the
time. It is a peculiar state of affairs,
indeeed, when there is plenty of coal
and coke in the mines, ulid there is a
big demand for it, nml yet the consumers cannot get it in sufficient
'unntitics for operating purposes.
Three cars of ore have thus fnr been
shipped to the Granby Smelter from
tho Grant mine, eight miles from Chesaw, by Supt. McPlice, and shipments
will continue regularly In future. The
ore runs about 5 per cent copper, with
total values above 320 per ton. The
mine is located at an elevation of
4,700 feet,about the same as Phoenix,
and has nine men employed.
"After the licenses in the Telqu
alley were granted, and hefore the
applications for licenses in the Pine
River district Were before the department, Caron, whom I know very well,
wrote mi*, saying he desired to allot
me a few shares of stock in a com
pany to be oiganized. I did not
wish to take any stock. Mr. McKay,
then secretary to the premier, was in
my office when I received the letter.
I showed it to him, saying I did not
want the stock, and if he cared to
take it he could have it, remarking
that while I did not consider it of
much value, it possibly might be
worth something to him some day
He signified his willingness to take
the stock, and I notified Caron to issue it to him."
What his colleagues say:
Cabinet Minister No. 1.—"Perhaps
Mr. Green did wrong."—Hon. Captain Tatlow, at Victoria, Jan. 25.
Cabinet Minister No. 2.—"This
matter should not be taken as reflecting on the present government. Blither does it reflect credit on us that
he is no longer with us."—Hon. Car
ter-Cotton, Vancouver, Jan. 24.
Cabinet Minister No. 2.—There
was nothing wrong in Green's accepting stock from Caron as a friend."—
Hon. Richard McBride, at Vernon.
Cabinet Minister No. 4.—"I feel
sure that is a typographical error.
Mr. McBride did not say that.     If I
thought he had ." —Hon. Win,

A Conservative's Opinion
The ex-president of the Conservu-
vative party of British Columbia.Jolin
Houston, formerly of Nelson, lately of
Tonopah, has arrived homo to take
part in the election campaign. Premier McBride thought he had disposed
of tho picturesque figure ho invited to
become a member of the government,
but with characteristic treachery deserted when he found that the miin
to whom he professed friendship was
n.t acccpt.thle to the Lieut.•Governor,
but the late member for Nelson cannot so easily be set on the shelf, lie
lias never forgiven the premier for deserting him, and is determined to
square accounts. Mr. Houston's motives, while they are intensely human,
and doubtless as honest as those of
the Premier, cannot be described as in
the highest degree patriotic, except in
so far as any action he takes may
be regarded as tending towards the
discomfiture of the most callous und
corrupt company of officeseekers whom
intrigue ever put in power in the Dominion. He says iii explanation of
his return to British Columbia and
public life: "My return is not actuated by personal ambition. I took uu
active interest in the polities of liii-
tish Columliiu for 15 years, and in do
ing so made warm friends and many
bitter, vindictive, and treacherous
enemies. There is enough of the lowland Scotch blood in me to make me
like my friends and just enough highland Scotch to make me fight my
enemies. Some of my enemies are
candidates in this election, and I will
endeavor to help my friends to defeat
The province is reported to be prosperous and the McBride government
claims ull credit for the prosperity;
but in my opinion the prosperity of
British Columbia is wholly due to the
great increase in population in Alberta
and Saskatchewan, the newest provinces of Canada, whose people draw
their supply of lumber almost wholly
from the mills of British Columbia;
and to the high prices of copper, lead
and silver that have prevailed for
nearly two years. The building of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, although
construction has not been commenced
in the province, and the demand for
fruit lands in Kootenay and the Yale
districts have also been factors in
bringing prosperity to the provinces.
The McBride government gained
office in 1903, and if it evolved any
great measures it has kept tbem
pigeon-holed, for none have been laid
before the Legislative Asseinply."
Asked if he had evolved any new measures, Mr. Houston stated that he had
given much thought to the question of
maintaining public schools in the province, which has become a heavy burden to the large incorporated cities.
The severe weather at the beginning of last month, and the great
amount of sickness towards the end,
showed their effects upon the attendance at the public school.

Editor Evening Sun:—Kindly permit me a small space in your columns
by way of suggestion of some very important facts regarding the Socialist
party in the coming election. There
has been no doubt a goodly number
of both men and women whose sympathies have beon aroused toward tbe
Socialistic element as a result of the
present political campaign and the
Socialists earnest, but deluded appeals
to the working classes. I must say
that any sympathetc person is apt to
be led or carried away with the Socialist theory, while looking at the
mere surface of it, which can be rightly compared to a beautiful apple,
whose core is worm eaten and full of
decay. Like the forbidden fruit of
the Garden of Eden, while most delightful to look upon, yet the partaking of it was the eternal ruination of
mankind. This is the exact condition
of the Socialist theory and those who
participate in it will reap like results.
Why? Because its theory and teaching are not only of a political nature
which ore mere outside principles
(and these are what appear to the
honest toiler as most beautiful) while
the mainspring of it all is the rotten
core; the deadly poison; the old *r-
pent's own means of mischief: It interferes and aims at the ovei throw of
Christianity and its fundamental
truths, the most vital and essential
questions of civilization. It denies
the eternal God as the creator of all
and Jesus Christ as the Saviour of all
mankind, scorning at the holy scriptures upon which even the laws of the
land are based and which alone have
brought civilization and all that is
pure and noble to this and other countries. Let the Socialists overthrow it
and what a beautiful lawless world we
shall have then, but thank God, they
will never do so. Christian men and
women, can you uphold this great
evill Can you conscientiously support such a monstrous wrongl Let
me warn you to be careful. Exercise
your best intelligence. Weigh these
serious problems, and on the second
of February cast your ballot, if you
do, for that which you know will
maintain these blessed privileges. 1
am not saying this in the way of upholding either of the other two parties. They both have faults, yet they
are not of such a serious nature but
what improvements can lie made, but
there can lie very little hopes for this
or any other country where Socialism
Bucceds in getting hold of the reins of
government Strychnine is said to
be very sweet, but once you get a little iu your stomach, it might take all
thc medical host to pump it, and perhaps it will be fatal after ull, uud so
with Socialism. As far as some of
the Socialistic candidates are concerned, 1 havo no fault fo find, but rather
uui 1 sorry to see them taking the
position they are.sceking to overthrow
all that is good, noble and pure, uud
to uphold and establish thut which
will tend toward the cursing of humanity rather than the blessings of
which Socialism is dreaming a the
present time. •

If a private individual bad played
the confidence game tbat tbe Me-
Brfde government played on the
Southeast Kootenay coal locators he
would now be "doing time" in the
penitentiary. The members of the
government, however, are still allowed their liberty. When the coal
locators made application for licenses
the fee was $50. Before they were
issued an ordet-in-council was passed
raising the fee to $100. The ooal
men cheerfully paid the additional
$50, and then waited about a year
before receiving what purported to
be licenses. The licenses were
really bogus, because the conditions
placed on them rendered them absolutely worthless. Tneti the coal men
presented the government with a petition of rights, praying to be allowed to prove their title to the lands
in the courts. This was peremptorily
refused, but tho license fee was retained. In this manner the government collected ahout $70, (-DO to
which it bad no legal right. The
granting of a petition of rights is a
boon usually allowed tbe meanest
citizen in any civilized country.
side, you should.vote fer him, because he as good as elected already,
and he will sit on the government
side of the house when the legislature opens' A careful canvass of
Phoenix gives assurances that Mr.
Gregory will come out of that camp
with about 100 votes, and at all
other outside polling places he is assured of handsome majorities. In
this city, where he is so well and
favorably known, he will have a big
lead. It can therefore readily be
seen that Mr. Miller's cry is ridiculous. It is only made to mislead
the public and to bolster up courage
among his weak-hearted followers.
Liberal members in a previous
government frustrated the attempts
of the C. P. R. to secure the rich
blocks of coal and oil lands in southeast Kootenay. From the McBride
government it demanded, and obtained, 800,000 acres of land, to
which it had neither moral no* ligal
right, elsewhere. It had not earned
this 800,000 acres of land, accordign
to the opinion of disinterested authorities. But the government gave
it this, and it will demand and receive more if the government he returned to power. The same corporation has also been relieved of taxation to the extent of at least $250,-
000 a year, while the demands of the
individual taxpayer bave been increased from 40 to 100 per cent.
We fail to see how Mr. Miller can
justify himself with the coul men.
His candidature on flu: Conservative
ticket simply means that he has deserted them and placed himself in
the hands of tbe gang that have
robbed them. There is something
wrong with the -'coal baron" who
votes the Conservative ticket tomorrow.
The voting to'norrow will be a
contest of the people against a
combination of so-called socialists
and would-be monopolists. The combination is drawing from a common
campaign fund supplied by a railway
cotporation, and if it succeeds in corrupting the electorate it is just as
certain as that the legislature will
meet that it will demand and receive
its reward in further raids upon the
treasury or upon the public domain.
The Conservative condidate in this
riding was unable to hold his position on the board of license commissioners without becoming involved
in a huge scandal. That is not the
kind of iniin the people of this city
want to represent them in the provincial legislature. What sort of a
record would he make for himself
Mr. Gregory, the Liberal* Labor
candidate, has been a resident of the
city for the past five years, and not
even his bitterest political opponents
can say a word against bis integrity
or breathe a suspicion against his
character. This is the kind,of man
the people of this district need to
represent them ut Victoria.
Hud the $750,000 uncollected on
ruilwuy corporations heen collected it
would not huve been necessary tor the
government to raise the taxation on
the poor rancher ami business man.
And yet the McBride parrots aie
howling, "let well enough alone."
"Vote the Conservative ticket or
the Socialist candidate will be elected," is Miller's battle cry. There is
pracitically no distinction between
the two parties, because if you cast
your ballot for either you don't
know which one you aro voting for.
The only party thnt has placed 'itself on record as opposed to unholy
alliances is the Liberal, represented
in this riding by II. W. Gregory.
if you  want to  be on the winning
his anxiety to present the C. P. R
with 800,000 acres of land should
have any bearing on this question?
It'slike buying a ticket in a lottery
to vote for the Conservative candidate. You don't know whether you
are endorsing a corrupt government
or voting for a bunch of revolutionists.
How do the Southeast Kootenay
coal locators like the licenses which
they paid for and didn't get? Are
they going to vote for anothur gold

for their rights and east their ballots

companies owned the old parties.
Who ownes Hawthornthwaite? Did
he give away the poor man's land in

to them.

Yours respectfully,
Liberal Policy
Our policy is defined by our stand i
on the measures brought before the
House, plus our aims regarding other
measures which cannot be introduced
by an opposition but only by the government.    These arc:
1. The creation uf a department of
labor aud information; subjects too
important tu be left, as at present,
without shape or provincial guidance
to guard us against undesirable immigrants.
ii. Full inquiry into water records
and irrigation, and while protecting
prior rights, providing for a wider distribution of water available for irrigation purposes.
.'1. Au adequate system uf forest
4. Surveys of Crown lands available for settlement, and where practicable parcelling thetn into small
holdings us part of an immigration
5. Repeal of School Act and return
of a system uf State education.
6. Revision of the laws of placer
and dredging leases, and a lessening
of the danger of inadvertant forfeiture.
7. No alliance with those revolutionists who would destroy our system
of government and haul down our
flag; but on the contrary, co-operate
with that great body of labor which
would reform abuses in a constitutional way.—J. A. Macdonald.

Why Chest Colds are Dangerous
. They lead to pleurisy and pneumonia. 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 everything 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. I
cheerfully recommend Nerviline."
Strongest, cleanest, most pain destroying liniment on earth is Poison's Nerviline, 25c 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 light. Around the wooden case is
an engaged wrapper with the name—
"Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. Tliere are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

One of Ihe legacies of the McBridi
government—incneased taxes. How
do you like it?
The outstanding feature oF the
whole campaign in the Boundary and
Upper Country is the great reception
given Liberal Leader Macdonald
wherever he appears. Even Conservatives admit that his meetings have
invariably been better attended than
those of Premier McBride, and Mr.
Bowser, and in all there has been a
most notably marked personal feeling
towards the future premier. All his
meetings, Rossland, Plionix here, have
taxed the large halls to the utmost,
and in all the leader has created a
most niarked impression. He carries
everywhere the reputation of absolute
integrity, and no statement he has
made on the platform in the whole
campaign has ever yet been questioned. He has been fiercely attacked by
the Socialists, but has invariably
triumphed through his straighforward
statement of his actions in the House
and his intentions when in power.
That the whole province has confidence in J. A. Macdonald has been
amply proved, and his great personal
following will .have tremendous effect
throughout the country on the polling

Liberal Leader Macdonald broke
into the premier's class on Tuesday
when he travelled on a C.P.R. special
in order to keep his appointment to
speak at New Denver. Arriving at
Sandom fiom Kaslo he missed connections there and was forced to walk
the track to Three Forks where a
special palace hand car, manned by
two husky section hands, carried bim
in the face of a howling snowstorm to
New Denver. Macdonald wound up
his'campaign away from home at the
meeting there and left for Rossland
on Wednesday. The meeting in
Docksteader's interests at New Denver was a great success, Macdonald,
in spite of a severe cold, making a
splendidly effective speech. He made
many Liberal votes.
