The increase in Avhat is  known as ordinary controllable expenditure from $21,5000,006 in 1S9S; to  nearly $71,000,000 in 1911 is proof of  extravagance beyond any possible defence.  2 Granting of the natural resources  to the prairie provinces.  ��������� 3 Construction of Hudson Bay railAvay and its operation by an independent commission.  ���������t Control and operation by state of  terminal elevators.  5 Necessary encouragement for establishing and carrying on the chilled  meat industry.  6 Establishment of a permanent  tariff commission.  7 The granting of substantial assistance toAvards the improvement of  public Highways.

And lastly, AA'e pledge ourselves to a  course of policy and administration  Avhicli Avill maintain independent and  unimpaired control of our OAvn affairs  by the parliament of Canada,, a policy,  which while affording no just cause  for complaint to any foreign nation,  Avill find its highest ideal in the autonomous development of Canada as a  nation Avitliin the British empire.

"When," says the  Globe, ''Americans have firmly established themselves in Canada and are  passing Canadian Avheat through Minneapolis mills, the English market  .will be at their mercy. Our Avorkers  are grumbling at the rise in food  prices'even.'now Avhen the independence of Canada's source of supply is  operating to keep prices down.

Oflico  on North   Main   Street.  Notwithstanding the. short notice  there avus a good attendance out to  hear- Mr. Burrell address the electors  of Hedley on Wednesday night of last  Aveek. With the exception of the  meeting at Kereineos on the night' before this Avas practically the commencement of the campaign in Yale-  Cariboo and Avhile the result is not for  a moment to be considered in doubt  the immense size of the riding to,lie  covered will make it a strenuous campaign.  Mr. J. D. Brass, president of the  local Conservative association, occupied the chair.  .Mr. Burrell in opening referred to  the enormous size of the riding Avhich  made it difficult for a representative  to get around to the various parts of  his constituency and Avhile he -had  been through a considerable portion  of the riding since the general etection  of three years ago this Avas the first  time he had been able to get back into  the Similkaineen valley. But if British Columbia\had: been fairly dealt  with by the government of the day in  ���������the matter of representation theiin-  portance of Yale-Cariboo Avould demand another member or more.  He gave a synopsis of eA*ents in the  closing days of the session to illustrate  the state of panic in Avhich the House  had been dissolved arid the shameful  manner in which the government had  broken faith not only with the opposition but Avith their oavii friends. This  breach of faith consisted in securing  from the opposition consent for adjournment oil a promise that charges  against the Minister of interior Av'oukl  be taken up Avhen the house re-assembled on Tuesday but during the period  for Avhich the house had been adjourned, or on the Saturday before the time  set for re-assembling', the House had  been dissolved and tliere had.been set  a precedent unequalled for '.'moral  turpitude on the part of any government at OttaAva.  In this connection he also dealt Avith  the misrepresentation of the opposi--  tion's position on  the part of Minister  Templeman avIio blamed them for obstructing the Avork of the House, implying   that the opposition  Avere responsible for the failure of parliament  to provide supply. The facts Avere that  the opposition in addition to granting  supply   for four   months   ahead    in  order to allow ' the Premier to attend  the    Imperial   Conference,   had   also  agreed to grant supply for any reasonable length of time Avhich tho government might ask on condition that the  matter of Reciprocity  be temporarily  shelved   until the census returns were  all in and a redistribution bill could be  brought in so as to  give fair representation   to  all  parts of  the Dominion,  but to this the government AA'ould not  agree and did  not even ask  for any  more supply.    Under these conditions  be Avas surprised that a Minister of the  Crown Avould misrepresent as Temple-  mau had done in   this connection.    If,  hoAvever,   tho delaying  of the reciprocity measure  so as to get it before the  country Avas a sin the opposition Avere  certainly  guilty, but  he   thought the  people of Canada  avIio have a right to  a say in matter of so great importance  AA'ould   pardon   them  for  it.     On   the  question of redistribution he explained  the  extent  to   Avhich   the   West  bad  been done out of their fair share of representation.  While reciprocity is the main issue  before the electors in this campaign lie  claimed tliere Avere many others, some  of Avhich in themselves constituted  counts too serious to be overlooked by  the electorate and as some 'had been  fully proven by- committees of the  House appointed to investigate them  no government should be allmved to  remain in office that had thus abused  the trust reposed in them. The Oliver  charges Avere taken up and these instead of being preferred by the Opposition came from the other side, and  ��������� Avere forced on lTiogovernment'through  the prominence giA'en them in the  press. The. fact that Laurier himself  considered them of "sufficient importance to AA'arrant him in appointing a  special committee of inquiry into  theni should be taken by the electors  as evidence that the charges AA'ere substantial and demanded full iiiA-estiga-  tion instead of the farcical treatment  they received Avhich amounted to  nothing more or less than that the  government considered themselves immune from the punishment Avhich  would otherAvise be meted out to  Avrong-doers  iu  other   Avalks   of  life.  The most shameful feature of the  situation Avas the dishonorable Avayin  Avhich the government had broken  faith Avith the opposition in order to  dodge the consequences if the inquiry  Avhich they evidently had advance information avus sure to result in the  charges being fully proven, and thus  they showed that they Avert* afraid to  face inA*estigation. In this connection  also the Lanctot matter Avas taken up  and the culpability of the government  shown from, the sequel in that the  electors refused to accept the' govern-  .ment's coat of AvhiteAvash applied to  the offending member avIio had painted his house at the expense of the gov-  ernment and refused to grant him rc-  noniination as a. candidate in the constituency.  The Prime Minister's attitude at the  Imperial  Conference   he thought was  also a question for deepest, concern on  the part of Canadians.    At first the  Premier had shoAvn a petulant spirit  and a  Avish to minimize the importance of the occasion and did not Avant  to go, until the opposition had practically insisted on him going and come  foi-Avard with proposals to  that end  which  left him no excuse but   to go.  His  conduct   Avhile   there,   hoAvever,  constituted  the main  fault: for in repudiating Asquitlvs offer to give the  Dominions  a share in   all questions of  British diplomacy effecting the interests of the Dominions on the ground  that consultation in such a case might  involve a share  in  the responsibility  for   any   measures   of   defence   that  might ensue he Avent badly astray.  In  this Mr. Burrell claimed that the Premier did not represent   the   general  trend of Canadian sentiment on either  side of the House and he gave  an instance of the. disapproA'al of a stanch  Liberal paper,  the Montreal Witness,  Avhich condemned the  Premier's attitude in no uncertain terms by declaring that Laurier's repudiation of such  an  offer and his  claim   that Canada  Avanted  to stand aloof Avas   not the  Avish of Canadians.   The Witness contended that Canada must either move  toAvards  the empire or aAvay  from it  and Laurier instead of hailing the for-  Avard step had (unauthorized   by  tlie  Canadian people)  pronounced the declaration  of separation,   to the intense  regret  of many  of his   own   Avarmest  supporters,  and   the   surprisn   of the  people of Great Britain.  Taking up the question of reciprocity he dealt-Avith it both from the  economic side and the national. The  gOA'ernnient by its British preference  tariff declared its belief in the principle of closer trade relations within the  British empire and iioav by entering  into this reciprocity arrangement Avith  the U. S. they dealt a death 1)1oav to  the very principle they had themselves enunciated. That reciprocity will  kill our imperial preference and Avas  specially designed for that very purpose he had the authority of President  Taft and .1. J. Hill both of Avhose opinions to that effect Avere quoted. The  present reciprocity scheme started  Avith the French treaty to Avhich the  United States objected and threatened  a tariff Avar to express their dissap-  proval arid tho government of the day  Aveakened and gave to the U. S. similar terms accorded to Prance under the.  Fiench treaty. Then finding the Canadian government so easy Tuft's next  scheme avus the present reciprocity  trap into Avhich the Canadian government dropped so easily, sending tAvo  SIR WILFRID'S PRAYER  Why is  He Not Afraid Now ?--"Heaven  Grant"   He May  be.'  Here is Sir Wilfrid Laurier's vieAv  as to what Canada should do with her  oavii tiade. It is contained in his  speech on the G. T. P. Why" has he  now gone back on it.  "We consider that it is the duty of  all those who sit Avitliin these Avails by-  the Avill of the people, to provide immediate means av hereby the products  of those new settlers may find an exit  to the ocean at the least possible cost,  and Avhereby, likewise, a market may  befound in this new region for those  avIio toil in the forests, in the fields,  tin theinines. in the shops of the old  Provinces. Such is pur duty : it is  immediate and imperatiA*e. It is not  for to-morroAv but of this day, of this  hour, and of this minute. Heaven  grant that it be not already too late;  heaven ^gr-uit that Avhilst we tarry  and dispute the TRADE OF CANADA IS NOT DEVIATED TO OTHER  CHANNELS and that AN EVER  VTG1LANT COMPETITOR DOES  NOT TAKE TO HIMSELF THE  TRADE that PROPERLY BELONGS  to those avIio acknoAvledge Canada as  their nabiv.e or adopted land.'"  Well, the "eA*er vigilant competitor"  has caught hini asleep and, stolen a  march on him in this reciprocity muddle, but he is too obstinate 'to own up  to the mistake and try to undo the  injury. It is therefore up to his supporters to think of themselves and  undo it for him.  NOW THEY THREATEN  The Boston Transcript in its OttaAva.  letter, dares the Canadian people to  reject the reciprocity 'agreement, saying that the United States Avould justly resent such a verdict, regarding it  as a slap in the face to President Taft,  and to both political parties in the  United States.  THE MAN OF MYSTERY CO.  Willaid, the man  of mystery, held  the boards in Fraternity Hall on Monday night and shoAved to a house that  Avas not lean enough  to  be -called a  frost and Avas not large enough  to do  justice to the  toAvn's reputation--as a  sliOAv-going  toAvn.     In- this  case  the  performance avus sufficiently meritor-  ous, even if it AA*as a one-man show, to  Avarrant a good attendance and should  he come back to Hedley  he can count  on a much better house.    The  sleight-  of-hand AA'ork AA*as  the  best that has  been here    and his vocal imitations  Avere perfect.     The only thing  that  Avas disappointing (and   that  no fault  of the performer)  avus the absence on  any hypnotic tests   and hence no opportunity AA'as giA'en to. judge betAveen  him and Mental  Avho  AA'as  here  some  ago, but Avhen no one would volunteer  to go on   the  stage  and   Willard  did  not carry any subjects AA'ith him  there  could  be  nothing doing   in that line.  Nevertheless   his talk  on that subject  AA'as most interesting   and his demonstration of hypnotic pcAver on himself  in driving the blood from bis arm  and  bringing it back Avith a rush   av.-is  decidedly   uncanny.     His  gtoiving  test  also avus most  mysterious  and   placed  him in a. class bv himself.  old men Avho Avere Avholly unprepared  to go up against astute men like Taft  and Knox, armed as the latter Avere  Avith the fullest data to sIioav them  Avhat AA'ould be the off vet of tariff  changes Avhile the Canadian representatives Avere thoroughly helpless and  unprepared as they had to admit Avhen  questioned aftei-Avards on that point  during the course of the debate in the  House.  Mr. Burrell next revieAA-ed the history of the reciprocitA* measure in  force betAveen IS.".I and 1SG6 Avhich avus  abrogated by the US. Avithout Avord of  Avarning and. Avith the expiess purpose  of forcing Canada into annexation,  but fortunately it had proved to have  had the very opposite effect by making Canadians more self-reliant and  forcing them to doA'elop inter-provincial trade Avhich culminated in confederation and started this country off in  her course toAA-'ards nationhood.

So strong has the reciprocity issue caught the people that they  have almost forgotten about the bumper crop they are iioav hai-A-esting.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier is iioav appealing  .0 the electors of Ontario and Quebec  on the. score of his gray hairs. It is  gray matter Canada needs nowadays  rather than gray hairs and there is  not much gray matter displayed in allowing Taft to plaA* Avith the Canadian government in the maimer he  has done in connection Avith the reci-  piocity pact.  Fancy the late Sir John Thompson  dissolving the House to head off in-  tjnii'A* into serious charges preferred  against one of his Mini. ters. When  Laurier's attitude in the matter of  dealing AA'ith Avrong-doing on the part  of his Ministers or his folloAving in the  House is contrasted AA'ith that shown  by Sir John Thompson in the. last  parliament under Conservative rule it  is seen Iioav Ioav the moral standard of  our government has fallen. Borden,  on the other hand, is the stamp of  man avIio could be counted on to re-  rive the John Thompson standards.  Ten million dollars a year is the nice  stun Avhich goes to the farmers of Ontario alone for horses supplied to the  provinces Avest of Winnipeg and this  is the market that Laurier proposes to  hand over to the horse-breeders of  Montana. As it it, all the money stops  in Canada, and the nice little fortunes  being piled up bv the fanners of Manitoba and the territories sIioavs that  they have not been impoverished by  the' prices they have been paying.  Why disturb such prosperity by handing over the trade Avhich has caused it  to an alien state which has in the past  done her best to drive Canada to the  Avail.  Instead of boosting   reciprocity  to  the direct injury of every  farmer in  B. C.  Avhy doesn't our cotem. oi the  Star try to encourage the fanners and  the farming  industry iii  the vicinity  of Princeton?   At one time our cotem.  Avas strong on   the subject of horse-  raising and could see barrels of money  in raising horses for AA'hich it claimed  the ranges around Princeton AVerc admirably adapted, and so they are.  But  reciprocity  has  been   sIioavu    by  the  most prominent hoise dealers in Ontario  (Avhere   most   of  the Canadian  horses, an- raised) to mean a loss of $50  per head  on every horse  raised there,  Avhile  other  dealers produced  figures  tiom   their  oavii   books, to sIioav  that |  the loss in their case Avill go as high as J  $72 per head.   Then there is the dairy- j  ing industry.      Princeton .should have j  a. cieamery ami supply good fresh but- j  ter and other   dairy   products for the j  Avhole of the Similkameen.    A Liberal j  tooter  the other day made  the state-j  ment at Nelson'that 90 per cent, of the 1  butter    used   in   Nelson   came    from :  Washington  state  Avhich avus a fib to-  begin   with, but  nevertheless some of  it av.-is corning  into Nelson during the  hot Aveather just the same as it is coming in   to Hedley.     Noav none  of this  money for butter should go out of the  country, to help  the dairy  farmers in  Washington,   for   every   dollar   that  goes out that way is lost to the country  for good.     Protect our farmers;  give, them  every chance to establish  creameries and   other   accessories  to  dairying   so    that   they   may   make  money and keep it in the country and  everybody Avill get a share of it.  you WORK,  nmyom honey  WORK TOO.  an PEFWinGyouRv-viriw  WITH US THEY WIIV BHH1 *  4& INTEREST WHICH  WECREWTIiOnTilLY :'  riripriopiE^isRETURri-  rlBLE ON DEMrWP  -IS QUICKLY/IS 7HE.r1i.IL5  GUI CARRY IT.

RURRELL'S MEETING  Continued from Page one.  Avas true, Canadians had believed in reciprocity in those days and Sir John  McDonald with the rest as shoAvn even  at a later period avIh-h he made provision in his tariff bill of 1879 for the  opening of the reciprocity negotiations if such could be. obtained on favorable terms to this country. In 1891  it had ceased to be a part of the Conservative party's policy and that it  had also ceased to be considered a part  of the Liberal policy Ave may point to  the fact that in the Laurier tariff" legislation of 1S97 the reciprocity clause of  the 1S79 tariff bill AA'as dropped. - Fur-,  ther evidence that Laurier had turned  his back on reciprocity is seen in the  fact that in the campaign of 1900 not  a Avoid Avas said about it and again in  the campaigns of'190+ and 1908 it was  never once'mentioned and hence the  parliament just dissolved could not by  any stretch of imagination be said to  have, had any mandate from the people of Canada to enter into any such  agreement as they. had done. We  don't Avaiit to be under the control of  the U. S. trusts. They want oar markets and they AA'ant to exploit our  natural resources after they have dissipated their oavii. He quoted fronr  Taft's speech to sIioav the high value  Avhich Taft placed on the Canadian  market and the gain it Avould he to  the U. S. to have access to it. The  effect of the favored nation obligations  under Avhich Canada is hound was  also shoAvn to operate yery much to  Canada's detriment if reciprocity  should be brought about."* The disastrous effects of the pact on the fruit  industry AA*as next shoAvn and when he  spi'ke of the fruit-groAving industry it  Avas not only the groAver Avho would  suffer but also the many subsidiary  interests Avhicli the fruit-groAvermaintained.     :.-;..-���������_.

If Canadian Avheat is diverted  across the line throuch reciprocity,  that is Avhere the milling interest.;"will  be centered and the same may be.said  of all the other industries for AA'hich  the natural resources of' Canada are  needed by the U. S., and Avhen the  manufacturing industries of the country are forced to leave, Avhat becomes  of the. Avorkingman? At present Ave  hear much of the Avoes of the American workingman OAving to the U. S.  beef trust and if reciprocity should be  brought about the Avorkingmen of  Canada will also come under the control of the same beef trust.  The pulpAA'ood situation Avas dealt  Avith shoAving the desire on the part of  president Taft to coerce the provinces  into lifting restrictions on the export  of pulpAA'ood and the general desire to  make Canadians mere hcAvers of Avood  for the artisans of the U. S. Avhich will  sell the finished product for $25 per  ton made from tlie iuav material supplied to them by Canadians at $1.50  per cord.  Two of the AA'orst bloAA'S Avhich it  Avould deal Canada financially AA'ould  be the destruction of her system of  interprovincial trade Avhich it has been  the Avhole policy of the country to foster for over 50 years and also to destroy the effectiveness of the great asset Ave possess in our system of railways and canals. The deep ulterior  design of the U. S. in the matter Avas  shoAvn in the expressed vicavs of senator Beveridge Avho looked for the  time Avhen the many American industries Avhich had been forced to come  over here because of our tariff Avould  go back there and of Gov. Foss of  Massachusetts Avho dreAv a, rosy picture of Avhat reciprocity Avith Canada  AA'ould do for Boston Avhen the great  transcontinental lines of Canada Avould  make Boston their eastern terminals  and their capital Avould no longer seek  Canada to build factories there as they  Avere iioav forced to do.  Dealing Avith the national side Mr.  Burrell Avas particularly effective. He  shoAved the fallacy of regarding it as a  mere experiment to he set aside at Avill  and gave ample reasons Avhy it could  not be so terminated, and even if after  the interval necessary to terminate it-  Canada should still possess power to  do so, a most telling picture Avas  drawn of the almost hopelessness of  the task to regain lost ground-and repair the injuries Avrought. . Opinions  of American public men were cited  one after auother to sIioav that they  merely- regarded tlie present step as a  beginning to secure commercial union  on the instalment plan. On the. other  hand the Avarnings of MoAvat, Blake,  Geo. W. Ross, Chas. Fitzpatrick and  other prominent Canadians all of  Avhom had been ,on the Liberal side  AA'ere- given to slum; the danger of a  Avanton surrender of all Ave have  fought for in the past. ���������  PRINCETON   BREWING   CO.
