.iberals of
,s Riding
Will Receive the Support of
the Disaffected Wings of
Other Parties
The Liberal .''invention of Orand
Forks riding met nt the Winnipeg
hotel in this city ut 2:30 last .Saturday afternoon for the purpose of nominating a candidate to contest thin
district in the provincial elections, tin
following delegates being present:
Grand Forks—Geo. Clark, D. D.
Munro, H.W. Gregory, H.A. Sheads,
John Donaldson. G. C McGregor, W
J. Gallipeau, B. Lequime, J. A. McDonald, A. B. Sloan, Louis Fitzpat-
rick, P. T. McCallum, Frank Latham,
Geo. Murphy, G. A. Evans. J. A.
McCallum, Neil McCallum. Phoenix—Wm. Delahay, Chas. Thornber,
R. Horrell, Samuel Lundie, C. W.
Whittaker, John McCrea, J.B. Boyle,
J. E. Thompson. Cascade, R. G.
Ritchie; Fife, Donald Dunbar; Carson, Frank Coryell; Bannock City,
Arthur Langford.
By a unanimous vote of the convention, J. B. Boyle, of Phoenix, was
elected chairman, and J. A. McCallum was selected as secretary.
Nominations being in order, P. T.
McCallum in a brief speeeh placed H.
W. Gregory in the field. The nomination was seconded by Wm. Delahay,
of Phoenix. On motion Mr. Gregory
was made the unanimous choice of
the convention.  ' ,
Mr. Gregory, in thanking the convention for the nomination, stateil
that he wished to be known as the
Labor-Liberal candidate, as he was a
member of Grand Forks union, and a
large proportion of the delegates were
also union men. He also touched
briefly on the important measures in
volved in the present straggle.* He
did not underestimate the battle
ahead of hiin, Uut with the united
ell'ort of the party hn felt certain of
victory ou the second day oi' Feliru
arv, as he was convinced in his own
mind that the people had hud a suffi
uietiey of the Me bride administration.
A landslide was inevitable.
Speeches laudatory of .'the unblemished character and high integrity of
the nominee wen* made bj' every delegate present. The Grand Forks delegates expressed th.* opinion that this
city would give a hig Liberal major
ity, while the Fife delegate stated
lhal his district would go Liberal by
ten to one. The Phoenix delegates
said that, although the situation hail
looked black in their town live weeks
ago, the tide was rapidly turning, and
thoy felt certain that the nominee
would draw i heavy vote both from
the Conservative party and the Socialist ranks. Considering the high
reputation of the nominee, the*,' no Ion",
er placed this riding in the doubtful
list.
Mr. Delahay stated that tliere was
just as much enthusiasm among the
Liberals in • I'hoenix as in Grand
Forks. We had nominated a very
good candidate, and he was positive
that he would be elected, as he would
receive the support of a great  many
[lukewarm Socialists. The party would
! have to put good speakers in the field.
j W. W. B. Mclnnis should be induced
to visit Phoenix. Geo. Clark said that
never before had we hail as bright a
chance to win as we have at present.
Mr. Gregory would make as good a.
member as could have been nominated, as he would^ also represent the
laboring cLsses. He was in
way worthy.
Neil McCallum said that while he
congratulted Mr. Gregory on bis
nomination, he also congratulated the
Liberal association on securing so suitable a candidate.
Mr. Donald Dunbar of Fife congratulated Mr. Gregory on the unanimity of his nomination. We had had
almost, everything in the local house
except a man. This time this riding
would elect one. Mr. Gregory would
get nine out of ten votes at Fife.
Hev. Mr. Whittaker, of Phoenix,
was favorably impressed with the
candidate and thc delegation. If we
put our shoulders to the wheel Mi.
Gregory would lie elected. He considered it an excellent choice, but
work was the chief thing now.
Mr. Thompson, of Phoenix, said
the delegates could go back to their
town and tell the people that they
had an opportunity to vote for an
honest man. There would be an even
break in Phoenix between the Liber
als aud the Socialists. It was the
duty of every man to fight against
the present administration. If the
record of the government was looked
into there need be no hesitation how
to vote.
Rev. Mr. Lundie was pleased to be
a delegate of the convention. He
had been in the country a number of
years. If we wished to accomplish
anything for the prosperity of the
country we would have to (all in line
with the Liberal policy. The Liberal
party was progressive. The candidate was an honest, straightforward
man.
P. T. McCalluin here announced
that he had just received a telephone
message from Greenwood congratulating Mr. Gregory on his nomination.
This brought a storm of applause and
the singing of "For He's u Jolly Good
Fellow."
Mr. Slo.in said that five weeks ago
the statement. Innl been given out
that there were no Liberals here, and
that there would be no Liberal candidate. Nothing could bu said against
the iininini-i*. Ifc would also represent the laboring men. The majority
of the 12 ridings in the province
would return Liberal member', Liberal stock had gone up recently.
Gregory would be elected by a good
majority. The only thing for any
sane man was to vote the Liberal
ticket, because to vote for a Socialist
was the saine as voting the Conservative ticket.
H. A. Sheads fell elated over the
prospects of Mr. Gregory's election.
He was impressed with the fact that
tliere were two ministers in the delegation. The convention bad chosen
wisely and well, and it would be a
pleasure to vote for the nominee.
D. D. Munro was pleased with the
nomination. The Conservatives would
feel dissatisfied with the result of tbe
convention because we hail chosen tjie
strongest man. The most important
thing was to work hard for our man.
The Socialists tulked 365 days in the
year, and we didn't talk any. We
had nothing to fear in this city, but
in Phoenix we would have a hard
fight.
R.G. Ritchie, of Cascade, was well right of way down the San Poil val-
pleased with the candidate. If a man ley from Republic to the mouth of the
looked all right and his reputation San Poil river, in the state of Wash-
was good, a man felt like working ington, has been argued and submit-

The Liberals would pull a heavier
vote in Phoenix than anticipated,
every i Phoenix would do its best to elect
him.
The chairman and Mr. Langford
both expressed srtisfaction at the re
suit.
Mr. Gallipeau said he would work
as hard as he could to elect the nominee, and tt.C. McGregor would do the
same. Mr. Donaldson said he believed he was a Liberal Socialist. The
Liberal party had always championed
the cause of the working men. Frank
Latham said the convention had made
no mistake in selecting Mr. Gregory.
G. H. Murphy would be in the campaign tooth and nail. He expected a
landslide. B. Lequime would do all
he could to elect his man. Mr. Mc

of the delegation. The uominee was
a man whose character was irreproach1
able. It would be an honor to sit in
the same legislature as J. A. McDonald, and this honor would fall to the
man whom we had justnoniinated.
Afler the selection of a campaign
committee, the passage of a vote of
thanks tn the chairman, and the singing of "Auld Lang Syne," the convention adjourned.
Below Zero Weather Did Not
Please Audience at Public Meeting
McDonald and Three  Aldermanic Candidates  the
Only, Speakers
The public meeting called by Aid.
McDonald in the opera house last
night, in the interests of his niajoraltv
aspirations, was not verv largely attended, owing partially, no'doubt, to
the extreme cold weather prevailing.
The hall was uncomfortably cold, and
the audience commenced departing,
ono by one, long before the speakers
finished. Mayor Hutton occupied
the chair.
Aid. McDonald spoke two or three
times. He Reviewed his work in the
council during the past vear, and gave
history of the purchase of the now
famous city team. It' elected mayor
ho would discharge the duties of the
office tn the best of his abilities.
Messrs. H. E. Woodland, John
Donaldson and P.T. McCallum, alder*
manic candidates, also addressed the
audience. They had no platforms to
present to the electors, but would do
their duty to the best of their ability
in respect to all questions coming lie-
fore the council,
Northern basis its claim under an act
of 1898, which granted right of way
to the Washington Development company, which conveyed its right to the
Washington k Great Northern."" The
Spokane it Hritish Columbia claims
its right of way under a general act
of congress passed March 2, 1899,
which provides fur granting right of
way over Indian reservations, Indian
lands and Indian allotments.
The case, in the opinion of the
Great Northern attorneys, will turn
on the question whether the Washing-
ington Improvement k Development
company has forfeited its right and
and lost its title to the right of way
by its failure to complete its road
within the time required by the act
of 1898. On the other hand, the
counsel for the Spokane and British
Columbia contend that no question of
forfeiture is involved, but that the
act of congress of January i, 1898,
required that the work of construction
should have been begun by the Washington Improvement k Development
company within six months after the
filinfi of its maps of the profiles of location, or the locating of its lines
would be void. The profile maps' in
question were filed in 1899, but no
work of construction has been done,
and the plaintiff holds that the location is void, because the statute so
provides.

saying. "We have obtained a sur
plus by wise legislation and an
economical government," the alleged
surplus might prove a valuable campaign cry to tin* Conservative party.
Vs it is. the surplus, if there is one,
has lieen gained hy overtaxing ihe
poor farmers und struggling merchants, and by collecting from $tSQ,-
000 to $100,000 from the coal and
oil locators in southeast Kootenay,
for which they gave absolutely nothing in return, because the documents
purporting to be licenses were not
worth the paper they were written
on. It is therefore quite patent that
the McBride government have not

considerable experience in the office,

TUESDAY, JANUARY 15, 1907
By nominating Mr. H. W. Gregory, the Liberal convention last Saturday placed the strongest man in
the Held that could possibly have
been selected. Mr. Gregory is young
and intrepid, and, while taking a
keen interest in public affairs, has
steadfastly refused to identify himself with any clique. He is 33 years
of age; was born and educated in Si.
John, N. B., removing to this province eight years ago. During the
past five years he has been a resident
of this city, where he is at present
employed in the electrical department al the G'runhy smelter. He is
a gentleman of scholarly aitainnients,
and will make a worthy representative of this constiiueney. His nomination has created a »reai deal of enthusiasm, not only in the Liberal
ranks, but among the dissatisfied
wing of the Conservative an I Socialist parties. His election hy a fair
maturity is freely predicted.
The Liberal convention, held in
this city last Saturday, was a mo.-t
harmonious gathering, which augurs
well for the success of the candidate
on the 2nd of February. In marked
contrast with the Conservative convention, held here a couple of weeks
ago, there was no friction between
the dill'cient towns of the riding. In
the Conservative convention the
Phoenix delegation practically walked out, of the hall, while in the Liberal
convention one of the I'hoenix delegates was chosen chairman, and another seconded the nomination of
the successful candidate.
Lome A. Campbell, of the West
Kootenay Power k Light company,
was nominated by the Conservatives
of Rossland last Saturday as a candidate for the local house. While Mr.
Campbell is quite popular in Rossland, he can hardly expect to make
much of a showing against J. A. McDonald, the leader of the Liberal
forces in this province. And anyway,
there is no sense in sending a man to
the legislature who may have an axe
to grind for so powerful a corporation
as the West Kootenay Power & Light
company.
The Conservatives have just awoke
from one of their choice pipe dreams.
"Strange," they drawl dreamily, as
they relight their pipes,''iio sooiierhuve
we come to the conclusion that there
are no Liberals in Grand Forks than
a whole army of them march up to
put out our pipes."
Premier McBride will visit this
city on Thursday next. The Coii -
servative association has engaged the
(jrand Forks hand to escort him
from the depot to his hotel. The
coal locators of this city are unanimous in the opinion that the most
appropriate music that could be rendered is a funeral march.
Lumber Prices Soar
Since December I the wholesale
price both of British Columbia lumber and lumber frum the woods and
prairie province has gone up SI to
S.'l per thousand. On December 2
Ihe wholesale price was advanced $\
per thousand, and within the [mst
ten days another advance has heen
made of fnun SI to S3, the average
advance hemg about $1.50 per thoti-
i saiiil. Lumber dealers state that
these prices will soar again very
shortly. Retail prices have not yet
changed, but a new schedule of prices will be put into effect in sympathy. A prominent lumber dealer
says that the principal cause of the
■ dvance is thc inability to get logs
out Ibis winter owing to the heavy
fall of sno *' and Ihe scarcity of men.
Record prices were off**fed hist full
for even green men but Ihey could
not he secured at anv iyte. To add
to the difficulties of the situation
there are iu the woods of Manitoba
and Saskatchewan from three to
four feet of snow on the level, It is
soft snow, which makes almost insurmountable the problem of cutting
and hauling
There nromises, lumbermen state, j
to be a shorlage of building iniitetial
next summer and dealers do nut
anticipate to be able to cope with
their orders. Prices before the year
ends will likely reatfh a high water
mark. It is very probable that the
increased price will interfere to a
large extent with- building opeia-
tions.' It is possible that the increased cost of building will prevent
considerable construction.

She Was Wild With Pain

Eeigel writes: "A few years ago I

biigj; it was like a steel rod piercing

The Victoria Colonist has made
an abject backdown from its dishonest allegation that W. W. B. Mclnnes
was foisted upon the province by the
Ottawa government. The McBride
parrots in this neighborhood arc
tardy birds, and have not yet exploded the ridiculous canard.

Proposed Amalgamation
The consolidating of the British
Columbia Copper coinpany and the
Dominion Copper company has been
considered by tho directorates of these
companies, and the idea of foiiiiin
an amalgamated company has by
means been abandoned. If this amal
gamatioii is consummated in tbe near
future it will mean that she new com
pany will be of gigantic proportions,
as the combined capital of the two
companies now is $7,000,000, the
British Columbia company now having a capitalization of $2,000,000,
while the Dominion Copper oompany
has a capital of ff.5,000,000.
It is also intimated that should
these two companies combine the new
company would conline its attention
in the future to the developing of pro-
m sing properties, in fact one branch
0 th.* new company would bp devoted
exclusively to the development of
likely claims.
The Dominion Copper eonipauy
winch f'ecenily acquired the Athelston
property, is now developing thut
claim in a systematic manner. The
wor.v O' unw.itering the shaft is now
about completed. When this is done
crosscutting on the 200-foot level wi
be started. Jt is also the intention
of the vendor company to build extensive tramways from the Great Northern ti ack to this property.    It has
1 also been ascertained that some years
ago over 16,000 tons of ore from the
working of the Athelston were treated by the Montreal it Boston smelter,
and showed an average gold value of
$ 16 per ton. It is now expected that
in the work of crosscutting at the 200
foot level the ore will increase in gold
values from what has been already
found.

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; Clycer-
ine, 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, winch druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is
securely sealed in around wooden ease
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 therein!. There nre many imitations ami eheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

DANVILLE NEWS
Special Cvrretrpondence Evening S«/r
Mr. Hugh Parks, the foreman in
charge of the Genin property, on Le
Fleur mountain, which is under bond
to the Dominion Copper company, reports that the ore shoot is getting
somewhat smaller. Before they finish
up the work they have in mind, however, which is something like one
hundred feet, they look to it to widen
out, as the indications are strong for
a true fissure vein.
Peter B. Nelson made a short business trip to Curlew lust Thursday.
Ed Crossen, of Curlew, made a flying visit to Danville on Tuesday,
John IL Grunwell purchased one of
the finest teams in this vicinity hist
vveek for *$^-r)0. A few days later
Mr, Grunwell had the utisfortllnu to
lose one of the animals.
While it's true that you have to
make hay while the sun shines, it's
also equally true that vou huve to
make ice while the mercury is hovering around zero. Acting on this proposition, Mr. Ballew put a force of
men at work last week to get out his
annual supply of ice. It was attended with the usual accidents incidenta
to this class of work. First Berry
Logsdon concluded to take a mid.
winter bath, and not to be outdone
in cleanliness, Frank Amell followed
suit. To cap the climax, James Wilcher also decided to take a plunge.
But while the bath was extremely
cold, after they had changed clothing,
they were none the worse for it.
B. Lequime's sawmill was shut
down the first part of last week for
au indefinite period.
Mrs. McNeely made a trip to Grand
Forks last Saturday to visit Mrs.
Peter B. Nelson. She found the baby
and mother doing well.
