With a general election within
measurable distance, the public mind
is naturally directed to the policy of
tho government of the day, and the
policy of the party in opposition
which it is sought to offer for the acceptance of the people.
There seems to be no difficulty in
holding up for public inspection the
policy, past and present, of the Liberal party, and submitting the practical working out of that policy for
the approbation of the people.
First and foremost comes that great
national undertaking, the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway, of which Sir
Wilfrid Laurier said when he submitted his policy on the subject to the
people: "Upon this policy I will stand
or fall." It cannot bo said that Sir
Wilfrid failed to guage tho public
mind correctly upon this important
matter, for his government was endorsed by an enormous majority, and
the premier was continued in his gieat
office pledged to build the transcontinental railway.
How well his pledge has been kept
ii the proud boast of the Liberal party
and the envy of their political opponents. It is passing strange that the
opposition in the house wasted week
after week in fruitless attempts to
prove criminal extravagance against
the government with respect to trifling things, but passed the estimates
covering millions of dollars for the
railway almost without comment.
Tho policy uf tho Liberal government is to employ every effort towards
the speedy completion of this great enterprise, to the end that the people of
Canada may have additional transportation facilities, and that- tht' fullest advantage may be taken of the
era of prosperity which Canadians
enjoy.
It has been made evident that thi'
people of Canada are ill favor of building the Georgian Bay canal. Millions
have already been spent in securing
information and making pliins and
surveys, and the next step will be of a
practical nature. The Liberal government is in favor of building this
canal, and while the expense will be
great the advantage derived will be
greater. This is no light undertaking—at least 8100,000,000 will be absorbed before the work is done, but
the government has faith in itself, it
has faith iu the productive power of
the country, and it has faith iu the
energy and ability of tho people.. In
the opinion of the Liberal government
tho money of the peoplecannot be bitter spont than in a national work
which will benefit every section of the
country.
When the Liberals in 1896 prom
ised to construct a tariff that would
produce a revenue without placing undue burdens on the people, they cannot be said to have "builded better
than they knew," for results show
they secured the result they promised.
The duties collected last year
amounted to $53,006,546, which was
$7,877,537 in excess of the previous
year, and §35,119,277 greater than
the total customs collected in 1895,
the eighteenth year of Conservative
rule. In that year, the last the Conservatives were in power, their prohibitive tariff, which retarded expansion in trade and closed foreign markets to Canada only produced $17,-'
887,269.
It is interesting to note that for the
first three months of the current fiscal
year, ending 30th June, 1907, the
revenue was $15,122,092, an increase
of $"2,91)4,391 over tho corresponding period of last year. The average rate of duty has been 51.81 per
cent under the old tariff. In other
words, the average duty is less and
the revenue the largest in the hist iry
of the Dominion.
Attempts are made by the Conserva
tive press to belittle the new Canadian
enterprise, the "All-lied Line" project. Upon the one hand they would
have it appear that the idea originated
with the Conservative party, and a
criticism is directed at the project containing the allegation that the scheme
provides only for passenger trallic and
not for freight. There is no foundation for such criticism. The soheire
contemplates   placing   vessels  on tho
Atlantic service which will be of
special benefit to Canadian farmers,
whose perishable products will be
landed in the shortest time and in the
best condition in the markets of the
United Kingdom.
It is true the ConservaflVos talked
of this project as they did of others,
but nothing more came of it. The
Laurier government is a government
that does things.
In Conservative days it was regarded as good policy to talk of the advantages of canal building. In Liberal
days canal building goes on apace.

lift lock, which gives access through

Faithful Service
Oddfellows Present Him With
an Address and Silver
Service Set
Mr. A. I>. Clements, who has been
C.P.R, agent in this city for the
past eight years, having held that
position ever since the road commenced doing business here, has
been promoted to terminal superintendent at Vancouver, nnd will leave
for that eity early next week with
his family, as his appointment becomes effective on August 1.
During his residence here Mr.
Clements has tnken an nctive part
in public affairs, having served for
two terms in the city council with
marked ability,nnd has also taken nn
active pnrt in nil other matters calculated to advance tho growth and
prosperity of the city. It is therefore with a feeling of sincere regret
thnt the citizens say good-bye to
Mr. nnd Mrs. Clements nnd their estimable family. The sorrow of pnrt-
ing with a go;id citizen, however, is
somewhat softened by the remembrance thnt his faithful services have
resulted in merited promotion.
Mr. Clements is a prominent
member of Gateway Lodge No. 45,
and last evening about 75 members
with their wives assembled at the
hall to bid him farewell. Walter
Hadden, noble grand, presided and
mnde n brief opening speech, nfter
which the following program was
gone through: Overture, by F. J.
Paiuton; song, Miss Phila- Wells;
recitation, Walter Hadden; phonograph selections were given throughout thc evening by Harry Itter. The
numbers given were highly appreciated.
After the conclusion of the musical portion ot the program, Mr. T.
L Crossen, districl deputy grand
master, rend a benulifully engrnved
address, from the lodge,to Mr. Ole
nionts, expressing deep regret at losing n man of such a splendid character, such sterling worth and ability, nnd wishing him and his family
godspeed and prosperity nt thoir
new home.
Mayor Iluminur followed in a
felicltlousspeech, during which he
presented to Mr. Clements On behalf
of the lodge a lienutiful silver service consisting of 56 pieces. The
mayor expressed the hope thnt it
would not bo long before Mr. C'lo-
inenls would be promoted (o Mr.
Mnrpole's position.
Mr. Fred Clark also made a neat
speech, expressing regret at the removal from the city of Mr. and Mrs.
Clements.
Mr. Clements wns deeply moved
by this show of good-will, and replied feelingly, expressing gratitude
for the kind words showered on him
and his family.
Throughout the speech-making
during the evening Mrs. Clements
wns frequently referred to as nn estimable lady of a sweet disposition.
She wns presented with a beautiful
IGJ.11
After several months' labor, the
installation of an irrigation system
on the fruit ranches owned by Wm.
Doull and Al. Traunweiser, situated
a mile and a half southwest of the
city, hns been completed, nnd on
Tuesday afternoon a test was made.
The system was constructed under
the superintendence of E. E. Gibson, of the West Kootenny Power &
Light company. It is the first time
in the history of tbis section of the
country when electricity has been
used for irrigating purposes Mr.
Doull's ranch consists of sixty acres
and has a good sized bearing orchard, and Mr. Traunwciser's plnce
comprises eighty acres. On the latter ranch there are about 300 trees,
a lnrge portion of them bearing.
The front pnrt of these two ranches
lies about a thousnnd yards from the
main Kettle river, from which the
water is pumped. A pumping station has been erected near the Great
Northern bridge over the river and
a 6x8 triplex pump and 20 h.p. motor installed. The power conies in
from Phoenix over the Cascade wire
with 2200 volts, stepped down at the
station by a transformer to 220 volts.
Seven thousand feet of 4-inch stave
pipe have been Irtid in all, and 25
1-inch hydrants are used on the
ranches. The effective bend would
be about 90 feet nnd tbe static hend
some 60 feet. Mi. Gibson thinks
that 10 horsepower will be sufficient
to satisfactorily operate the system.
The pump is fitted with an automatic discharge, so that when the
wat ir is not needed it releases itself
a id flows back into the river. When
the water was turned on last Tuesday twelve of the hydrants were discharging a lull stream with a good
pressure, and when the system is in
thorough working order there is little doubt that the whole 25 can be
operated at once. Very little leakage wns apparent in the whole
length of the piping, und after n day
or two's soaking the wooden pipe
will take everything up. The intake pipe is placed two feet below
the water nnd the suction is thirteen
feet, the station being built a few
leet above high-water mark.
This is the first serious attempt
made to systematically irrigate the
fruit lands south of the river, and
the outcome will be watched with a
great deal of interest. At present
there appears to be no reason why
tbe electric irrigating system should
not prove sufficiently economical
to warrant the installation of pumping stations throughout the valley.

Successful Garden Fete
The annual garden fete, held under the auspices of Holy Trinity
church, on the large lawn at Mr. J.
B, Henderson's residence, Inst Wednesday evening, was the most successful affair of its kind e* er given
by that church. An immense
throng of people wns present, and
the receipts of the evening amounted to about 8100. The grounds were
beautifully decorated with lings nnd
bunting, nnd the soft light from innumerable Chinese lanterns transformed the scene into n fairyland pic
ture, There were numerous (lower,
tea, ice cream and lemonade booths,
at which the greatest attraction
proved to be the Dutch waitresses
who had not yet learned how to
speak English. The band rendered
some excellent selections,and are entitled to a portion of the credit for
the success of the entertainment;
Too much praise cannot be bestowed
upon those who directed the prepnr-
ations of the fete for the thoroughness cf their work.

(Continued from Page One)
congregated on that occasion found
cause to bless the government for the
progress it has made in this necessary
branch of public works. The Trent
Valley canal will be vigorously pushed
until it becomes a completed system.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier lias already expressed himself in favor of a line from
some point in tho west connecting
with Hudson Bay. Tlm people in the
West have received with infinite delight the assurance of the prime minister that the government is aware of
its responsibilities with respect to this
road.
The advantages to the farmers of
the West are manifold. The freight
rate upon grain from the wheat belt
to Hudson Bay would approximate 10
cents a bushel. This is a freight the
farmer could afford to pay, the additional 15 cents to get the grain to the
Atlantic seaboard is prohibitive and
represents a fair profit to the wheat
grower. Wheti one pursues these figures and calculates the legitimate measure of foreign demand for Canadian
wheat, the amount saved o the western farmer who has facilities for shipping via Hudson Bay reaches a colos
sal sum.
When one reflects upon Canada's
great western heritage, with its vast
natural resources, its inexhautible vitality, its great wheat areas, its teeming acres of grazing land, the industrial and commercial genius of its enterprising and aggressive people the conclusion cannot be reached that all
should go for naught, or be in any
manner compelled to fall short of
their greatest realization by the mere
incident of neglect with respect to
providing intelligent transportation.
The government of the day is sensible of their responsibility in this regard and if the people of the great
West can be brought 1000 miles
nearer a European market via Hudson Bay by the building of a railway,
then the Laurier government may be
confidently relied upon to see that the
road is built.
A   revolution    in   traffic     routes
through Oanada is bound to come, and
the strategic point is, without doubt,
Hudson Bay. The citizens of Canada
have scarcely realized the transportation advantages of the country in the
extraordinary rapidity with which
they are now being developed under
the fostering encouragement of a Liberal government. All outlet at Hudson Bay will annihilate a quarter of
t'ie distance from Western Canada
to Europe, bring uncounted millions
of acres in the wheat belt ldOO miles
nearer the market and cut in half the
annual transportation cost of 50,000,
000 bushels of grain.
The people nre well advised to place
their trust iu the far-sighted, comprehensive attitude of the Laurier gov
eminent to subjects of great nntionn
interest.
The energies of the government an
being directed towards the opening up
of new markets for tho products of
Canada, Tho minister of finance is
now engaged iu negotiations with Uer
many and France, seeking to sec are
uetter trade relations. In due course
tho results of his-s-ft'orts will be submitted to parliament and the people,
and by results the government is always content to be judged.
In 1S95-G, after eighteen years of
Conservative rule, the finance minister presented the people with a deficit
of $330,451.31. The year before the
deficit has over .54,000,000, and the
year before that ,-$1,210,000. For ten
years the Liberal governmens can show
a surplus each year. The average surplus is nearly $10,000,0(JO tt year. In
1905-06, after ten years of Liberal
rule, the Liberals had a surplus of
812,893,719.
In 1895-fi, after eighteen years of
Conservative rule, the Cnnsi'i-untives
managed with their high and oppressive tariff-to secure a revenue of $3'v
618J590.. The revenue for the year
ending June 80, 1907, was over §91,-
200,0011 nfter ten years if Liheial
rule. At the present rate of increase,
which is about one million it month,
the revenue of the Dominion this year
wiil be nearly three times what it wns
ten years ago, A government which
enn reduce the rate of taxation and
increase tiie revoni e is a popular government with the people.
With iiiicxninpli'il prosperity and
immense revenue flowing into the
treasury, the government has not
been unmindful of its obligations to
the people. Economy having regard
to tin; due performance of the publ c
service has been the practice. Him.

discussing the condition of the roads

the settlers along the North Fork of
Kettle river are greatiy dissatisfied at
the condition of the roads in the district, both at the amount of money
available and in the manner of spending it to the best advantage; also,
where the Kettlo Valley railway cook

Moved by W. II. Brookes, seconded by H. Hacking, that the minister
of lands and works be asked to extend

Moved by R. A. Brown, seconded
by W. H. Brookes, that the minister
of lands and works be asked to have
two cut-offs constructed on the east
sides of the river, said cut ofis effecting a shortening of the road by two
miles.    Carried.
Moved by Leo Neff, seconded by R.
A. Brown, that, in the opinion of this
meeting, the extent of roads along
the North Fork would justify the appointment of a separate road foreman

suits   of   Liberal policy as  outlined
here?   Having no policy, they  attack
that of thoir opponents.
Opposition to the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, both in principle and in
the working out of practical details, is
the nover ending occupation of the
Conservatives. They fail to realise
that Canada under Liberal government demands increased transportation advantages, both as 'to railways
and canals.
They see Camilla as it was during
the eighteen years they misgoverned
the country and retarded its progress.
They don't appear to appreciate that
the Dominion now requires statesmanship, and not paltry politics. Accustomed as they were to small revenues,
little foreign trade, not much in the
way of imports, and barely business
enough to keep the railways moving,
they cannot grasp that under Libera!
administration, the commerce of the
country has grown to such extent that
the freight cannot be carried by the
existing railroads.
Ai year after year went by the Conservatives found the public debt piling up, and their annual recurring
deficits made it impossible for them to
entertain the idea of prosecuting great
public works. Yearly surpluses such
as the Liberals can show are a revelation and a source of envy to the Conservatives, who yearn to return to
power and enjoy the fruits of Liberal
acumen and statesmanship.
Having nothing to offer the people,
it remains for the Conservatives to
hamper the government in its operations—to make captious criticism of
trivial expenditures, to advance general allegations of wrong-doing, but
without making specific oharges that
would demand investigation. There is
in fact a total absence of constructive
policy. The Conservatives invite the
people to sell their birthright for a
mess of pottage, but the people have
more sense.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier enjoys in a
marked degree the confidence of the
people of Canada. Since he assumed
power in 1896 he has surrounded himself with colleagues selected from the
flower of the Liberal party. It is not
unlikely that once more he iimv find
it expedient to call to his aid able
men of his party. It will be found
that his selection will be wise and in
the interests of the country at large.
Canada demands the services of her
best men, and from tho Liberal party
a selection can be made to fill acceptably any office in the gift in the government.
Statesmanship of a high order has
brought Canada to her present enviable position as Ihe brightest star in
the constellation of colonies. Sir Wilfrid will call for the services of such
men as will enable him to continue
the policy which has raised Canada
from the position of an obscure colony
to the dignity of un einbrvo nation.
