at Vancouver
Battle Cry for Clean Government Eaised Amid Great
Vancouver; March 1.— \Vhatwa»
undoubtedly the most enthusiastic
convention of'Liberals ever assembled in this province met in this
city yesterday afternoon to discusB
matters of general interest .to the
party in British Columbia. The outstanding feature of tho resolutions
and discussions showed that if the
Liberal representation in Ottawa has
disappeared and that at Victoria is
at tbe vanishing point, Libernl Bpirit
is still a virile and militant force in
British Columbia. Enthusiasm in
a marked degree permeated all the
proceedings of the convention.
The following platform wes
We favor woman suffrage.
Representation—The present government's policy of revision of the
voters' lists and improper redistribution of constituencies and of precipitating tbe present election are a
complete subversion of all Ihe principles of representative government.
We insist upon new voters' lists for
every general election, personal registration and immediate redistribution.
Liquor Trallic—This is at present
under tlie absolute control of the
provincial government, and is used
as a political machine. VVe insist
upon the compl.te removal of the
liquor question from party politics.
Its control should be vested in the
municipalities. We favor the in
spection Of all liquors offered for
sale nnd favor the local option   law.
Other Planks—The public ownership of public utilities: government
aid to settlers for land clearing, dyking and irrigation; free homesteads
and no land to be sold to specula
tors; abolition of land slaking and
adoption in its place of the survey
system as in vogue .in the Northwest.
The present educational autocracy
of lhe government wns condemned,
nml the appointment of a representative advisory board was advocated
The present school curictiluni was
d'.'olnrod to he so overloaded with
subjects as to render a thorough
education in any branch quite impossible. Tho convention also advocated a.civil service commission for
'•••lli outside and inside service. The
convention condemned the policy of
tie government in arrogating ever
increasing powers to the lieutenant
governor in council and the ministers in their departments as at variance with the principles of representative government, and concluded by condemning the action of tbe
government for reversing the basic
principle of British law, which has
always required tbat a man must be
assumed innocent until he is proved
guilty. The revision of this principle in the forestry and automobile
acts sh absolutely unwarranted and
aliinks we have tried to exhaust lhe
general principle with regard lo lnnd
and tinilier, nnd we have tried to
avoid condemning the gov3rn111e.it
for anything they may have done
which may have been vuluable to
the country,
W. A. MacDonald—We have a
McBride Bowser hyphenated government in thiB province, but there
is a growing feeling that we should
have a better balanced legislature.
Hon. Win. Templeman—The tide
has turned and the pendulum has
swung just as far as it possibly can,
and it is going to swing the other,
Duncan Ross—Mr. McBride has
asked us to make a light in this contest with our feet shackled and our
hands tied behind our backs. It is
not a fair fight.
Ralph Smith—The one strong
thing, in my mind, in this election
is to seek to make a public man feel
(here is reason for suspicion and
lhat there is need of opposition.
Angus McKinnon—Mr. McBride
has been dissipating the natural
wealth of the province, and if we
had only one plank in our platform
we will defeat him.
' Farmers' Meetings
A Great deal of interest Ims been
taken by the rnnchirs of lhe valley
in the short-course lectures on fruit
and vegetable growing which have
I een held in Ihe Miners' Union hull
.in this city under the direction of
the horticultural branch of the
agricultural department this week.
The attendance has been exceptionally large, those present last night
numbering about 65. For tonight
tbe Davis hall has been engaged, as
it is anticipated that tbe crowd wil)
be too large for Miners' Union hall.
The addresses and demonstrations
have been instructive and interesting,
and the effect of the work of the
specialists will undoubtedly be noticeable in an improved appearance
in the orchard, field and garden in
this district in the future. Four of
the most prominent fruit growers
in the Kettle valley have taken part
in the lectures. The following program is being faithfully carried out:

School  Board
Unconditional Grant
Geo. II. Hull, secretary of the
school hoard, on Wednesday received a telegram from Victoria stating that a straight grant of SI2,000
had been made for the erection of
an addition to the public school
building in this city this year. This
grant is in lien of the $15,000 appropriation, niada-jjlast week, which
carried wilh it certain conditions
objectionable to the school hoard.
Shortly nfter 12 o'clock on Tties
day fire destroyed the two small
frame buildings between the Yale
and Russell hotels, on First street,
occupied hy Peter Paire, burlier, nnd
S. D. Curry's cleaning and dyeing
works, the lire Stirling in the latter
place from a gasoline explosion. The
dye works building adjoined the
Yale botel, and the east wall of that
house was badly sorched, and one
or two bedrooms wero damaged by
water hefore tiie flames were extinguished. The total loss will not
tench five hundred dollars, partly
covered by insurance. Mr. Pare
saved all his effects and broke even
on the game, but Mr. Curry lost
some clothes nnd implements. The
two buildings destroyed were owned
by Mrs. G. W. Averill.

Not less interesting nnd startling
than the budget speech of the minister of finance on Friday was the
voting of the estimates which took

000 of the people's money—coining

an hour. With the carnival of
spoliation which has been enacteal

tilting that tbe chief feature Bhould
be rushed through like a railroad

When Mr. Borden complies with
Mr. McBride's assurnnces that thc
Orientals are to be excluded and
there is no more head tax to be appropriated to the province the receipts will suffer a serious slump.
Those who read the estimates will
see that the government expects to
receive 8.500,000 from that source
this year. As the government at
Victoria receives one-half of lho
Chinese hend lax c illcctcd by the
cusiaims authorities, it means that
81,0UO,UU0 is expected to be collected tbis yenr. Tnat impLe. that
the McBride administration haB already bargained for the influx of
2000 Chinese during the current
yenr. The wage earners nnd labor
lenders havo hero a clenr indication
of how much in earnest .Mr. Borden
was when he made the pledge to
Mr. McBride which the provincial
premier boasts as a signal triumph of
tbo success of bis n.ission to Otlawa.
It also indicates how thoroughly
"sincere" Mr. MoBlide is when he
talks of keeping British Columbia a
white man's country.
So convinced have these men become of the credulity of lbe masses
that they do not hesitate to act with
the most brazen duplicity. After
promising the laborers that their
best efforts would be put forth and
the reiterated assuranco that they
intend to succeed in obstructing the
admission of Asiatics, thoy calmly
ilout tno public by estimating a revenue from their entrance at half a
million dollars.
It is safo to say lhat this is one of
tho items in the estimates which thc
Colonist argues will "exoped the
amount calculated," because it is
impossible te estimate accurately
and "the experience of tbo past has
been that tho actual income exceeds
tho estimated income." From this
source there is no doubt that it will.
Many of the others are doubtful.—

C.P.R. Provides Home   Comfort*   for
Trainmen at Important Polnta
When off Duty.
An announcement of some importance
wa8 made recently by officials of the
Dining and Sleeping Car Department
of tho Canadian Pacific Railway. A
short time ago thero waa opened by
the C.P.R. at Winnipeg a building tor
the use of employees ot this Department while on tlio various runs
through Winnipeg. The object of the
company was lo provide accomodation
for Its employees coming on or off Its
trains. Under old conditions employees on trains through Winnipeg
had to seek board and lodging at
hotels or private houses. This wsb
somewhat difficult for tho employees
who arrived :.t various hours and
whose stay was short in Ihe city. The
erection ot the new building by the
C.P.U. changed ihis state of affairs as
the employees went to the C.P.R.
building when off duty, and there
found the very best accommodation at»
a very low rate. Being an innovation
on American Railways this new step
In welfare work has been closely
watched by the railway world. Since
the scheme has turned out to be a
big success tt was stated by the C.P.R.
officials that the work would be extended. According to Information given out It is the intention of the railway
to erect similar buildings to that at
Winnipeg, at all Important points
from coast to coast. Those buildings
will not be all erected at once, but lt
Is intended to eventually extend the
scheme to affect tho whole system.
This will be a big expenditure of
money but the C.P.R. believes that as
a result, its service to the public will
be rendered even more efficient than
lt is at present.
There are more benefits to te de-
rived from the Innovation than the
mere providing of good accomodation.
In the first place, Tt ensures that In
cases of especial necessity the railway will be able to secure crews for
its trains on short notice and in the
second place, since sanitary rules aro
enforced lt ensures that the public
shall always have clean, tidy, sober
men to wait on them.
The building erected by the C.P.R.
at Winnipeg Is a two storied one,
built something like an ordinary private houBe, having a verandah, garden
mini lawn. Inside there are reading
rooms, smoking rooms, billiard rooms,
etc., and thero are also shower and
plunge baths. The house Is In charge
of a competent manager and from
statements made by the employees it
ts gathered that they are more than
satisfied with the new arrangement.
It seems rather filling that u man
who is down nnd out Bhould bc taker,
up and run in occasionally.

Wash Your Own Hair
If you are accustomed to having
your hair shampooed, try doing It
yourself so that you may reap the
benefit of an outdoor suu drying. A
half hour of fresh air and sun light
will do more to stimulate the growth
of tbe hair and bring out Its natural
lustre and color than any ahiount of
tonic. Many women go an entire year
without taking advantage of nature's
own remedy for ltisterless,
stubborn hair. A pure soap, a vigorous rubbing, careful rinsing so that
no soap remains ln the hair and a
drying in the direct rays of the sun
are possible to overy woman. Allow
the hair to become thoroughly dry before combing it, then brush out the
tangles with a stiff, bristle brush.
Continue this brushing for at least
fifteen minutes, lifting the strands
to let the Bunshino filter through. Do
not dress the hair for a half hour
after It Is brushed out, but let it hang
-loose about the shoulders.

aud as a fountain of youth Is unbelievable until one has bathed regularly therein. It almost seems magic lu

How a Fad Waa Proved
A woman recently made up her mind
that the agitation against tho common drinking cup was a "tad". So
lo prove lt she took a cup which had
been used all day In her millinery
shop to a nearby laboratory for analysts.
"Now I will prove to you," she said,
"that thero Is nothing ln all the excitement,"
Tiro laboratory chemist found the
cup charged Willi diphtheria germs,
and Inoculated six guluea-plas with
Ihem. In six hours one culnea-nig
had passed away. In eight hours two
more had succumbed, and before
morning five of the little creatures
were no more.
Not only was tho woman herself
convinced so that sho abolished the
common cup from her shop, but the
story got into the newspapers, and
now that town has aa ordinauoc
against the deadly cup.
An Ontario boy was asked lo define
the word "goblin." and solemnly responded: "A goblin Is the gliost cf
a turkfy."
Changes That Are Now Under Consideration In England
There will be no need of children
to learn wearisome linea regarding the
number ot days In the months if Mr.
R. Pearce's bill ln parliament for the
reform Ot lhe calendar becomes law.
Then the first two months of every,
quarter will have thirty days and the
last mouth thirty-one days.
There will be only JIM days in the
year, ns New Years' Buy will not be
reckoned. It will be a bank holiday,
and the next day will be the firat of
January. Thore will be anothor bank
holiday every four years, which will
not be reckoned either. This leap
year day will come after the last day
In June and will be followed hy the
first ot July.
These small changes will simplify
the calendar In a wonderful way, as
Christmas day will always fall on a
.Monday. Thus a person's birthday
will always be on the same day of
the week as he was born, bo far as
regards tliose born- after 1911.
Tbo only difficulty about the arrangement Is that persons who have
been born on certain days under the
old style apparently will never have
birthdays. They can console themselves that Ihey will never grow older. ' Thus there will be nb 31st ot
January and February will have thirty
days each.
After this movable days will come
to an end. Each Sunday will always
be on the 14th of April, and the days
depending on lt will be fixed accordingly.

ninny occasions given ils renders nitis-t delightful premium picture,
Inn this season they have secured what is beyond.any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper readers. It ie entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
of mnny prizes nt dug snows, thc pride ol the family and neighborhood,
hus been stolen, nnd nfter many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor nnd returns home On a snowy winter's morning with thc rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted Jn be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and reeling his head against her breast wilh a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
nnd parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture tbal will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and gym pathetic painting of children and animals.

inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of

a standard remedy for dyspepsia and
Indigestion and are highly esteemed,

■ the HOME
Almost every woman at the head of
a homo meets daily with many little
worries tn her household affairs. They
may be too small to notice an hour
afterwards, but It is these same constant little worries that make so many
women look prematurely old. Their
effect may be noticed in sick or ner-
voul headaches, fickle appetite, pain
In the back or side, sallow complexion,
and the coming ot wrinkles, which
every woman dreads. To those thus
afflicted Dr. Williams' Pink Pills offer a speedy and certain cure, a restoration of color to the cheeks, brightness to* the eye, a healthy aopetlto
and a sense of freedom from weariness.
Among the thousands of Cnnadian
women who havo found new health
and new strength thaaugh the uso of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ts Mrs. W.
C. Daerr, London, Ont., who says*.
"About two yenrs ago I found myself
so badly run down that It was almost Impossible to perform my household duties. I fell oft tn flesh, waa
weak and very pale, had no appetite,
feet constantly cold, and to further
make my llfo miserable I was afflicted with those other ailments from
which so many women suffer. I tried
many kinda of medicine, but got no
benefit, and began to feel thnt I was
slipping Into chronic Invalidism. I
was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and although felt aomewhat
hopeless decided to do so. To my. do-
light, after taking the Pills a few
weeks, I felt much bettor, and a further use ot them brought me back to
my old time health. I have since
recommended the Pills to many others-,
and those who have used them have
always been benefitted."

One of tbe most Important revenues
at dairying is the rearing of calves,
whether for veal or replenishing the
dairy - herd, writes 0. L. McKay In
Kansas Farmer.
. The Utile fann separator Is a bleat-
tag to the calves, owing to the fact
tbat, by Its use, sweet, warm milk Is
always to be bad. tf the object la to
bslld up the dairy herd by proper care

ed extent On tho otber baud, carelessness In breeding, tn calf raising, Is
bound to result disastrously to a herd
er atdeast lo keep it at a standstill aa
far as Improvement ts concerned.
In breeding n full blooded sire to a
grade the first cross ts more than 60
per cent, the second ts more than 75
per cent, tbe third cress is 87ty per
cent, and tbe flftb cross would naturally be n full blood. So It Is possible, for
•very one to build up bis herds at
comparatively little expense by using
aires of some dairy herds with tbelr
ordinary cows.
One of- tbo common mistakes made
la the localities where whole .milk la
•old for market purpose* or to con-
denaerles or cheese factories is the
failure to raise any calves. In this
esse the milk producer depends upon
buying cows to replace tbose discarded
from his herd. The excuse for this
practice Is that tbe cost of raising the
cows Is too greet Under such n system a dairyman will aimoat Invariably
produce milk year after year without
tmprvlng hts herd In tbe least.
Wben more cows are required they
■re purchased from a shipper or dealer and without any Information available regarding tbe merits of the nnt-
mala beyond what can be determined
from appearances.
The dalty cows lo be placed on th«
market tbrough such channels are almost certain to be of very ordinary
grade, since a cow wbose value as a

Kspock,   a   Curious   Subatantt  Thai
Came* From Java.
Amsterdam receives jearly a great
quantity of a curious nnd Interesting
vegetable substance known ln Java
, nnd ln tbe trade as "kspock," wblcb,
| among other useful purposes, Is found
'very useful for stuffing cheap mattresses and pillows.   It Is a sort of yellow wadding that nature uses as a covering for the sends of certain trees ln
the Malaccss.   Its libers being very
nonreslstau't, tt has been found Impossible to spin or weave It, but It gives
excellent results for bedding, making
a mattress delightfully soft If it Is exposed to the sun before being used. It
Is exceedingly light sud buoyant, In
this greatly surpassing cork, as It will
support Is tbe wnter thirty-live times
Its own welgbt.
The tree whence It ts derived (erlo-
dendron) grows rapidly, and In tb* second year It Is twelve to fifteen feet
higb, but lt bears fruit abundantly
only tn the fourth season. Llko tbe
cotton plant, lt bestows two gifts upon'
man, the special wadding mentioned,
which lines tbe husk, and the' oil extracted from tbe seeds, wblcb Is specially used ln the Chinese markets.
The threads of the soft fibers taken
from tne pods are light yellow; rather
silky and only about an Inch In length.
They are made into thin rings, and
kspock, it Is said, never decays.
Besides Ihe ever Increasing uses to
whicb tbis curious vegetable product
is put, causing the culture of the erlo-
dendron to make great strides In the
Dutch Indies, whllo efforts are being
made to cultivate it ln similar climates,
lt bas been suggested that excellent
life saving apparatus at sea might be
made from tbls floating substance,
which sbould bo In the form of mattresses and cushions easily obtainable

will support a man of 160 pounds In

articles made of this wadding, which
had previously been soaked In water
for eighteen hours, gave excellent results. One small mattress supported

Peril In Sour Milk.
Thc sour milk "craze," following the
publication of Professor Uetchnikotfs
researches. Is suid by medical men to
bc the greatest which has beeu known
in modern medical history. At thc
same time lt Is declared to be suited
to only a particular class of cases,
aad It Is therefore coming into condemnation by tbe medical faculty.
Tbe condemnation seems to bo based
on the fact that few persons have
shown any Improvement under the
use of sour milk. It Is admitted that
sour milk ia nourishing, but not so
mucb so os ordinary milk, because
somo of the sugar hss been removed
by Its conversion Into lactic acid. One
case Is cited of a womau who bad
used sour milk for two days und then

they come in contact.
We honestly believe that we have
the best constipation treatment ever
