Unanimous Choice of Yale-
Cariboo Liberals at Vernon Convention
Very Large Attendance
Great Enthusiasm Prevailed
approval ofthe action of the government in appointing the civil service
commission, and of the course of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier following upon the
report thereof, and we express our
sincere desire that as a result of that
course, so entirely in accord with
Liberal principles, the civil service
of Canada will, in the near future,
be established ou a strictly nonpartisan basis.
f hat we also heartily approve of
ie broad and statesmanlike manner
\ which Sir Wilfrid has dealt with
.lie Asiatic immigration problem.
Following the adoption of the
resolutions, the secretary read a letter from Sir Wilfrid Laurier, which
was received with tumultuous cheers
nnd applause.
The letter was as follows:
Ottawa, 21st March, 1908.
My Dear Sir:—I understand that
u convention is called for the purpose of selecting a Liberal candidate
in the district of Yale-Cariboo. It
is an encouraging sign to see that
tlio Liberals in your district are thus
getting ready for the contest. The
loyalty and enthusiasm of the Liberals ot the west have always been an
inspiration and an encouragement,
and I feel sure that my friends in
Yale-Cariboo will see that so far as
they are concerned there will be no
breaks in the ranks of the solid
seven from British Columbia.
Your district is one of immense
area and wonderful natural resources, offering a most attractive
Held for development. We want a
supporter from this rich district to
aid and advise us in connection with
those problems that are incidental to
the development of the west and the
building up a greater Canada.
It is not for me to interfere in the
choice of the electors; that is a matter as to which they must be left absolutely iiiitrainmuled. If I may,
however, he permitted to express a
wish, I can assure you that no man
could be more acceptable to myself
and lo the Liberal members of the
house of commons than our friend
Duncan Boss, the gallant sitting
member.    Yours very sincerely,
Wilkkid Lauiueh.
G. A. Harris, Esq., Seoretary Yale-
Cariboo Liberal Association, Vernon, 13. C.

that they would next day start for
Spokano. When the train arrived
at Marcus, Sehulli surprised Loor
and Colombo by appearing on tho
scene. Schnlli demanded an instant liquidation of the debt, and,
according to his own story, he gave
the men a well-deserved drubbing
and succeeded in extracting about
$150 from them. ■
Vernon, April 14.—If ever a public man had occasion to realize tbat
his services were heartily appreciated, that was the experience of
Duncan Ross, M.P., at the Yale-
Cariboo Liberal nominating convention here today..
A splendid gathering uf Liberals,
including 110 delegates, representing evory section of the great Dominion electoral district of Yale-
Cariboo, covering an area of 175,000
square miles, unanimously and enthusiastically endorsed bis course in
parliament since his election in 1904
and with equal unanimity declared
him to be the only possible standard
bearer in the coming campaign.
It was a splendid tribute and
demonstrated in no uncertain manner the unqualified satisfaction of
Yale-Cariboo Liberals -with the policy of the Laurier administration.
The convention assembled at 2 p.
ui. in Ihe opera house, S. C. Smith,
president of the Yale-Cariboo Liberal
association, occupying the chair.
The committee on credentials and
resolutions having been appointed
and performed their duties, the convention was regularly organized with
110 delegates, in attendance, which
representation would have been
largely increased had it not been for
the unfortunate delay of tbe train
from tbe west, which prevented dele
gates from Yale, Lillooet and Ciri-
boo and some from Kamloops putting in an appearance.
The report of the resolutions committee, which was received and
adopted unanimously, was as follows: Resolved, that this convention of the Liberals of Yule-Carihoo
electoral district expresses its profound confidence, respect and esteem
in thc trusted leader of the Liberals
of Canada, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and
hopes he muy be long spilled lo direct thc government of Canada, and
to continue ids policy for the permanent binding together of all parts of
the Hritish  empire.   That, through |
hia policy Newfoundland may soon ,^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^_^___

The Conservative association of the
city held a meeting in Alberta hall
last Monday evening for the purpose
of electing delegates to attend the
Yale-Cariboo nominating convention
in Vernon on the 23rd inst. Nearly
every Conservative in the district
was named as a delegate, but those
Who are likely to attend the convention will probably be confined to W.

New Coaches
New coaches for the Phoenix
branch of the Great Northern railway have arrived in this city, but,
as a result of some slight differences
between the railway company and
the Canadian customs, the placing
of the cars on the run between this
city and Phoenix has been somewhat delayed. The incident also
revealed the fact that the old coaches
had escaped duty. It is stated that
the matter will be settled satisfactorily.

The depression that was general in

winter has, Mr. Langan says, almost
entirely disappeared, While it may
tnke a little time for commerce and
industry to recover from the shock,
confidence is already restored. He
was interested in some large financial
schemes the success of which depended to a very large extent on faith in
the successful development of Canadian industries in the near future.
In nil his enterprises Mr. Langan

It is becoming rather wearisome
to hear newspapers minus political
convictions extolling the virtues of
independence. Independence is a
virtue, and no one can pay greater
homage to this virtue'than Tiik Sun.
But independence and the so-called
independent newspaper is seldom on
speaking terms. Usually the editor
of a self-styled independent journal
is afraid to express his independence
for fear that it might affect his advertising patronage or his subscription list. Moreover, the so-called
independent journal eschews politics
until it ascertains which party has
the largest sack, or the most patronage to distribute. Then it casts its
hypocritical independence to the
four winds, and proceeds to feed its
readers on equally hypocritically
pure polities. This may seem to be
i rather harsh judgment of the so-
jalled independent newspaper, hut
if it is true, why should not the
people be enlightened on the subject?
civilians. "One fell at every turn of
their quick sentences that he was
dealing with made and trained players of the game, balanced men who
believed in decencies that were not
to be disregarded, a confidence not
to be violated, and an honor not to
be mocked. Yet while the men's
talk was so good and new, their
written word 6eemed cast in conventional moulds. Ona hates to
think of these splendid people using
second-class words to express first-
class emotions."
FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1908
The renomination of Mr. Duncan
Ross by the Vernon convention as
the standard bearer of the Liberal
party of Yale-Cariboo in the forthcoming Dominion elections, will be
hailed with satisfaction not only by
the professed Liberals of the district, hut by all voters who nie not
so completely blinded hy partisan
bias as to be unable to recognize
merit and ability when encountered.
Few new members of the commons
have made as brilliant and enviable
a record during their first term of
oflice as thc sitting member for Yale-
Cariboo. His able and stubborn
fight for railway competition in the
southern part of the province is now
a matter of record; and the success
that crowned his efforts in this
historic hattie against corporation
greed has brought benefits of inestimable value to the settlers of the
district. People of recent arrival in
this section of the province cannot
fully appreciate the importance of
tbis victory, unless they happen to
come from sections where one railway exercises dictatorial rights in
the matter of freight and passenger
rates. The ability and persistency
with which .Mr. Ross conducted
this light in the house is not likely
to be soon forgotten hy the people of
the Similkameen and Okanagan districts, especially as tho successful
termination of the fight is about to
give these sections railway communication to the outside. While the
people of Yale-Cariboo consider the
part taken by Mr. Hoss in railway
legislation as of paramount importance to his constituents, he bus not
been idle when questions of national
score have been under discussion,
lie lias taken a prominent part in
all such matters, always witb oredit
to himself, to his constituents, to the
province, and to the Dominion, and
in a manner that has gained for bim
the respectful hearing of all members of the house, irrespective of
party ties. His latest service to tiie
province was the manner in which
be exposed Attorney-General Bowser's trickery and bad faith in the
matter of contracts made by the
Canadian Pacific railway for the importation of Japanese coolie labor.
These charges have been substantiated by Mr. Ross with original doeu-

is said that a few of these apples
were of British Columbia yrigiu, but
of this I have no evidence, and wi s
i nable to locate them. The fact th, t
one United States shipper continues
to send large quantities of apples to
ihis market supports the statement
tbat I made in [previous years that
the Au Indian market is the most
p .iliialile market for the British Col* j
umbia grower open to him. A Can-
a lian paper informs mc that buyers |
were paying a very high price for
shipping Ontario apples to the eastern United States. The prices there
had been so high that western Uni-
ed States apples were also being sent
there. Nevertheless, the finest glower
in Ontario found it to be still more
profitable to send his fruit to Australia. The price stated to me paid
was from Si to 81.25 per case 11
Vancouver, which was certainly jjl a
case less than the fruit would bave
brought by shipping to this market
under proper conditions There is,
however.this objection to the British
Columbia apple, that the average of
the best fruit is too large in size,,
giving too few to the box. Nearly
2d,000 cases of apples were disposed
of at different points at the prices I
have named, and moro than justifies
my statement that this market would
take 15,000 cases when properly
"Sis in New York"
It is always a pleasure to be able
to chronicle the success of a play
when such success is gained by legitimate methods and by absolute
worth of the play and company.
Such a play is "Sis in New York."
That it has achieved one of the season's real bona fide successes, and
that it met wilh the hearty endorsement of both press and public
wherever presented is a known fact.
Its reception bas been must cordial,
and the attraction is mentioned as
one of the few really worthy dramatic offerings of the current season.
The story sparkles with a peculiar
wit and happy innovations. The
humorous situations are crowded
upon each otber with a profusion of
resources, yet are never allowed to
break the steady development of the
story to its well defined conclusion.
The character types are of a refreshing originality, and there is picturesque interest to thc entire production that is decidedly original and
unique. "Sis in New York" conies
to the Grand Forks opera house on
Friday night, April 24th.

According to the Boston Commercial in the month of March the Gran-

every cost od mining, smelting, etc,

the present low price of copper.
