THEC1TYELECTI0N
An Effort Is.Being Made to
Elect the Entire Ticket by
Acclamation
Candidates to Be Selected at
a Meeting of Ratepayers
Tuesday Evening
The public meeting held in the
eity hall Wednesday evening for the
purpose of discussing the situation
in respect to the municipal election
was very largely attended, nearly all
of the heavy ratepayers of the citv
being present. By a unanimous vote
of the meeting, Aid. Cooper wan
elected chairman, and W. H. M.
May wag selected as secretary.
L. A. Manly spoke briefly on the
importance of selecting a strong city
government for tbe coming term,
m the year just ushered in would in
all probability prove to be a banner
one for Grand Forks, and aole men
should be at the head of civic affaire.
Any one who looked at the map
could not help but notice the splendid railway systems we possessed.
In this respect the city held the most
enviable position in the province.
Tbis advantage alone was of sufficient importance to build dp the
town. If Lome Campbell succeed*
ed—and there was every likelihood
of success—in getting water on the
land across the river, there would be
mi influx into the valley next summer nf from five hundred to a thou
sand families. This would surely
result in bringing the population of
the city up to about 75<>0. It was
desirable to have the citizens agree
on the composition of the city ticket
and then allow the election go hy
acclamation, in view of the pending
provincial election, which was of
much more importance.
6. M. Fripp also felt confident
that there would be stirring times in
the city and valley next summer,
and the best men that could he got
should be selected I" fill the offices.
He spoke in the smut* strain as Mr.
Manly.
Mr May moved, wounded by Mr.
John Donaldson, tlmt a committee
of leu In* iip|uiinii*ii io select candidates and to report at il future meet
ing
This wns amended mi motion of
Messrs. Traunweiser nnd Bolton to
Ihe effect that the meeting proceed
to select candidates at once.
On u vote lining taken, tlm amend
ment wns adopted.
The secretary read a petition from
a large nuniher of ratepayers urging
Jeffery Hammar to offer himself us a
candidate for mayor.
Mr..Hammar, being called ou for
a speech, stated lhat his candidacy-
if he finally decided to enter the
race—was not, as had been alleged
in certain quarters, a scheme to
throw the city wide open. The man
who attempt! d to gain office in this
city on a wide-open platform would
not get fifty votes,as the character of
the population had materially
changed for the belter during the
past ten years. The days of a wide-
open town had gone by. In answer
to (|iiestions, he stated that he would
not  have  tbe power to reduce the
liquor license, fee, and that he had
had a sufficiency of trying to limit
the number of licenses.
On motion of Al Traunweiser and
Fred Russell, a resolution was passed
by a vote of 31 to 2 asking Mr. Hammar to offer himself as a candidate
for *nayor.
The following names were sug
gested for aldermanic candidates:
West Ward—Ed Taylor, A. E.
IJardy, H. E. Woodland,, B, Lequime, Chas. Brown, P. T. McCallum, Lindsey Crossen, Peter A. Z.
Pare, Alex Fraser.
East Ward—Geo. Rutherford, F.
H. Hutton (declined), Ed Davis, J.
A. Smith, VV. S. Miller, Geo. Hull,
F. E. Cooper (declined), W. K. C.
Manly, John Donaldson, J. C. MacDonald, Ed Uolton (declined), Dan
McDonald.
Committees of five membere were
appointed to endeavor to reduce the
aldermanic candidates to three in
each ward. The committees are
composed of the following names:
East ward, W. K. C. Manly, Al
Traunweiser, John Temple, Ed Bolton, L. A. Manly; West ward, J. C.
MacDonald, E C. Henniger, A. L.
Clements, Neil McCallum, John McKie.
Secretary May brought up the salary question,'but no action was taken
on this point. Mr. Hammar stated
he had always received a salary, and
if he worked for the city he expected to be remunerated for his services.
Mr. Traunweiser wouldn't have
the nerve to ask a man to work for
nothing.
Geo. Hull favored tbe adoption by
the present council of a by-law fixing the salaries for the next five
years.
A resolution was adopted instructing the committees to wait on Mr.
Spier and endeavor to induce hiin to
offer himself as a candidate for reelection as school trustee.
A vote of thanks was unanimously
tendered Aid. Cooper for the public
spirit he bad displayed in convening
the meeting.
The meeting then adjourned, to
reassemble at 8 o'clock sharp on
Tuesday evening next in the Eagles'
hall.

W. W. B. Mclnnes Feels Confident of Liberal Success
Voters' List for Grand Forks
Riding Contains 1200
Nantes
W. W. B. Mclnnes, late commissioner of the Yukon, who has sent in
his resignation, left on Monday for
the coast, accompanied by Duncan
Ross, M. P., and F. J. Deane, of
the Nelson News, who has been at
Ottuwa seeking to secure a bounty on
zinc produced in Canada. Before
leaving Mr. Mclnnis made the following statement:
"I resigned my position as governor of the Yukon today and leave for
the coast tonight. I am glad to begin the New Year associated again
with the*public of Canada's greatest
province. The Bring line is where I
love to be and it has been a real pleasure to respond to the request of my
leader, J. A. McDonald, and the provincial Liberal party to. enter the
fight. I have unbounded faith in the
future of British Columbia and the
conviction that at this critical period
of it's history, its affairs can only be
safely administered by a strong Liberal government, unallied with any mischievous faction. I go into the campaign confident of a great Liberal
victory."
J. A. Macdonald leader of the opposition, was nominated fir Rossland
riding at the party convention held
Wednesday night, In accepting in a
subsequent public meeting, Mr Mac
donald appealed to Liberals and organized labor to rally to his standard.
It was the "labor-liberal vote" as he
characterized it, which had elected
him three years ago. It is his intention to make a tour of the province, vis
iting the coast and leading points in
the interior. The opposition lender
declared that whether the C. P. R.
was lo alienate the remainder of the
public domain was a real issue of the
campaign. He arraigned the McBride government for its alleged subservience to that railway corporation
and devoted considerable timo to explaining that he alone was responsible for the invitation to Hon. W. W.
B, McJnnis torn enter provincial politics. Mr. Macdonald also blamed
the government fin- the Hindu invasion,  and promised, if returned to
power, to create u department of labor
and immigration especially designed
to look after the interests of the working men.
Archie E, Berry, of Rossland, a
miner, will he standard bearer of the
Socialist party for the Rossland riding
in the provincial campaign. He was
the choice of the party convention
held in the Rossland Miners' Union
hall. The straight labor element is
not ut all pleased with the socialist
candidate and it is said that a straight
labor candidate will he put in the
Held.
The selection of Horn. W. Manson
as provincial secretory by the premier
appiirantly dues not please all of tin*
Conservative members and   nominees,
and they wish to know what services
have won for Manson the place he
has been given iu the government.
They contend that while Manson is
all right, he brings neither experience
in political affairs nol* strength to the
party. The dissatisfaction in the ap
poiiitment is general and the premier
seeks refuge from the storm which he
raised in his party by describing it
simply as a temporary arrangement
iu filling up the cabinet until after
election, when the readjustment will
follow.
The cabinet was tilled on Tuesday
at Victoria by the appointment of
Wm. Manson, M. P. P., of Alberni,
to the provincial secretaryship and
ministry. Hon. F. J. Fnlton remains attorney general, while Hon.
Capt. Tatlow, who is already minister
of finance and minister of agriculture,
assumes the duties of chief commissioner of land and works. Premier
McRride says this is only a temporary arrangement and will be altered
aftei the elections
Fulton, the Independent labsr candidate in Newcastle, owing to the discovery of the fact that he is an American citizen. Mclnnis will probably
stand for the seat.
The Socialists at Vancouver have
placed a complete ticket in that field
by nominating E. E. Kingsley, R. P.
Pettipiece, A. A. Stebbings, K. Mc-
Vety and J. E. Dubberly.
The Liberal convention in Vancouver Wednesday night enthusiastically
beaded their tieket by the name of
W. W. B. Mclnnis.
Dr. G. A. B. Hall was unanimously nominated last Wednesday night
at Nelson by the Liberals to represent
that city in the next provincial legislature. J. A. Kirkpatrick has been
nominated by the Conservatives to
contest the riding.
R. A. Brown, of Volcanic, has announced his intention of giving a political speech in tbis city on "Socialism"
on the evening before the provincial
elections.
The new provincial voters' list for
Grand Forks riding contains about
1200 names.

A telegram receiyed this week at
Vancouver from Tulameen, tells of a
very rich strike having been made in

excitement among the shareholders of

ingly strong, but the shareholders are
congratulating themselves, because
even if a little exaggerated, thero is no
doubt the strike is an important one.
If the message is fully borne out the
property will no doubt develop into
a big mine.

The disgruntled wing of the Liberal party at Victoria, headed by R. T.
Elliot, S. J. Spratt and James Murray, are circulating petitions for the
formation of an independent political
party in B. C, it being expected that
100 signatures will be secured this
week. The sessionists have advocated
"better terms for British Columbia"
as a motto and are recruiting from
the highways and byways,no names of
prominence ifl political or business
circles being found on the lists. The
movement is apparently inspired by
Conservatives to split the Liberal
forces by a fictition definition of the
scope and character of the proposed
new body, The malcontents are unlikely to exercise any influence in the

'sorehead party."

NEWS NOTES
Statistics of trades unionism show
that, there are more than S,OUO,000
wage earners now affiliated with organizations throughout the world. Of
these approximately one quarter are
in the United States. New York,
with less than one-fifth the population
of France, has one-half as many trade
unionists. In this state 1 in 19 inhabitants is a member of a trade
union; in England, 1 in 22; in Denmark, 1 in 27, in Germany, 1 in 31;
in fraiioe, I in 50; in Austria, 1 in Hli;
in Italy, 1 in 125; in Hungary, 1 in
280, and iu Spain, I in 325. Unions
in the English speaking countries'
show a marked pre-eminence. W'lie-,
ther this will be retained permanently is open to question. Germany has
doubled the number of its unionists
.in four years. Austria lias had a
similar experience and the unions of
Italy anrl Hungary are the creation
of the'last five years. Groat Britain
is the native home of trade unionism
and there the organized workingmen
have won their most notable political
successes.
