The Over-persuaded Man From Rossland  '���������' Accepts.  The Liberal convention for Similkameen was held in Keremeos on Tuesday. John Love, whose pilgrimage to  the Kooteriay wns referred to in lust  issue returned as far as Keremeos,  bringing Smith Curtis along. In this,  John exhibited rare sagacity and bus  established tor himself a claim for consideration from the party that on some  future occasion cannot well be overlooked. Prudence dictated to him the  expediency of never allowing his quarry out of his sight until he had him  safely  coralled.  Several days before the convention  there were rumors of Similkameen  delegates declaring for a local man,  but so far as known of the proceedings  of Tuesday's convention, no other name  than that of Smith Curtis was put forward. This Of course is not authori ta-  tive, and it may be that there were  others.   '  In Smith Curtis the Liberals of the  Similkameen have a candidate whose  platform ability is unquestioned,c and  if he could "shape up as well in all  other requirements they would have a  strong candidate. Mr: Curtis hits a  parliamentary record upon which his  opponents are at liberty to drawfor  material, and besides, he has never  been backward in the expression of his  CONSERVATIVES GET BUSY.  Hedley Conservatives and Supporters of  L. W Shatford Hold their Primary,  and Appoint Delegates to the Convention in Fairview To-day  On Monday evening the local Conservative association were called together to elect delegates to attend the  convention in Fairview. The meeting was called for the Oliver building  which will be the Conservative committee rooms until after the election/  The splendid turnout and the unanimity that prevailed augured well for  a decisive victory for the standard-  bearer on election day. No fear was  manifested at the impending tornado  of spell-binding foreign eloquence  which is to be let loose on this riding  in the. next few weeks with the vain  hope of carrying it by storm.

Another week has gone by and with  the exception of some yellow handbills that were said to be in circulation  stating that Smith Curtis would hold  a meeting in Kereineos, nothing definite was given out as to who the  Liberal executive of the Similkameen,  assisted by the powers that be on the  outside, had been able to persuade to  become standard-bearer in this riding.  Additional interest was lent to the  situation when a coast paper announced that, the, man would be Duucan  Ross, who was to resign his seat for  Yale-Cariboo and try to wrest Similkameen riding from its present representative.    Among local Conservatives  opinion was divided as to whether Boss or Smith Curtis would be  the easier opponent to  beat,  and  it  was   considered   a   toss-up   between  them.     But all  were of one opinion  as   to   the   unconscious   compliment  which the Liberals were paying the  present representative  by raking the  country from Ashcroft to Ottawa to  find a man strong enough to go up  against him.   For this delicate compli  ment Mr. Shatford's friends bow their  acknowledgements,  and at   the same  time prepare to sail in  to make  his  victory on February 2nd as complete  and unmistakable as possible, so  as to  show  meddling outsiders that Similkameen knows how to appreciate the  efforts of a man who   has   obtained  more   for   the   improvement   of   the  district than all his predecessors put  together.    They are grateful also fortius opportunity  to render more emphatic  their views as to what treatment should be accorded this province  in the matter of better terms, and in  the right of a federal government to  interfere with provincial elections.  and Swan for Hedley, with Scott and  McDerinott, alternates.  Mr.H.F. Evans'addressed the meeting on the subject of provincial rights,  in which was involved also the question of ''better terms," and treated the  subject clearly and exhaustively," and  divested of all party bias. He took  high patriotic ground, urging the  claims of the province above, that of  party, and pointing out that Premier  McBride would have been recreant to  his trust had he agreed to the settlement which the Ottawa authorities  tried to impose upon him.  A. Megraw urged the advisability of  paying special attention to the matter of conducting the campaign along  educative lines. Let the electors thoroughly understand the question of  better terms, and the record of the administration generally, and he had no  fear for the result.  The chairman outlined some features  of the work to be done and the arrangements being made. He extended  a hearty invitation to all members of  the association to make themselves  and their friends at home in the committee rooms, which would be open  to all.  METEOROLOGICAL.

The cold spell here has established a  record, but no fears are expressed by  fruit-growers that any harm will be  done to the young trees.

H. Holbrook was called away  on Tuesday, by a telegram received  that his wife was seriously ill. Having  obtained leave of absence, he went out  on Tuesday morning. With superintendents of both mine aud reduction  plant called away by urgent telegrams,  on following days, Mr. Ross has his  hands full these days.  The lands and works department of  the provincial government has never  been busier in the history of British  Columbia. According to the records,  the returns of that branch for 1005  totalled a sum slightly in excess of  $723,000. Hon. R. F. Green, the chief  commissioner, states that in all probability, before the close of the present fiscal year, it will reach the $1,  000,000 mark. ���������  After the minister had recited these  figures he was'' asked the reason  for  the marked increase in the earnings of  the department and what it meant to  British     Columbia.     His   reply was  couched in the most emphatic terms.  The reason, he said, was that the investing public was beginning to evince  a greater confidence in the province.  This change of sentiment���������for it was  marked and a favorable change when  the opinion of outsiders in regard to  this section of the Canadian West five  or six years ago was taken into  con- f  sideration���������had been brought about by  the influence   of  stable  government.  The   capitalists!    those   with   money  ready to put into the development of  the vast resources of a country   like  British Columbia,  were  now willing  and   anxious to   make   investments.  Where they had hesitated before,  believing that   conditions   were   so  uncertain here as to make the sinking of  capital an exceedingly precarious venture, they now displayed no uncertainty.   Their only cdesire was   to obtain  some interest in a country which they  felt sure"   had. a great destiny.  The chief   commissioner   took the  trouble to look up  the reports as far  buck as 1893 for the purpose of making comparisons which would give an  adequate idea of  the   progress which  has been made since that time.   He  pointed   out    that   during  the year  named the   income derived from the  lands and works department amounted to less than $70,000.    By 1902 it had  jumped to $313,375.11.    In 1903,  the  year the present government assumed  control of public affairs, it went up  to  $473,141.12��������� advancing       in       twelve  months over $100,000.   At the end of  1904 a still   greater   advance   was   recorded, the total turned into the  treasury and credited   to   the   lands and  works department  being   $626,070.32.  This figure   the. .minister   points out-  was augmented'"to some extent by the  sale by auction of lands held  by the  government   at . various   points.    In  1905, last year there was another increase of a little over $100,000, the total iu this case being $722,119,07.    The  latter must be accepted as a bona fide  jump in the regular business of the department, for there  were   no auction  sales to swell   the   total   during  that-  time.    But this year all previous records   will   be   broken.   There   is no  doubt Hon. Mr. Green says, that the  returns   when   completed   will   show  that over $900,000  worth   of business  has been   transacted.   He   goes   even  further, stating   that  if  the  present  rush continues for a few   move weeks  the $1,000,000   will   be   reached,   thus  marking a signal achievement in   the  history of that branch of government  work.  These figures, Hon. Mr Green stated  could   be   interpreted   as    indicating  only one thing���������the  country was going ahead by leaps and   bounds.    British Columbia had been  re-established  in the confidence of the investing  public, and consequently, large numbers-     \  were coming here���������in fact,  rushing to   .  this section of the Canadian West,  in  their eagerness to place   their monev  somewhere in the  province.   The outlook, in short was considerably brighter than ever   before.    It went with-      *  out saying that once the capitalists began to show such  marked   interest in  the development  of   the   natural   resources of a   section  so  rich  in  agricultural, mineral   resources,   etc,   the  beginning of a new era was assured.  A GOOD OMEN.  Ever since the writs were issued for-  the present election, the roosters on  Tory row, Hedley, have been crowing  at all hours of the day and night.  Smith Curtis had better be warned in  time.

BETTER TERMS AND THE  Sun. iYson. Tties. Wee!. Tim.' Fti. Sat.  Westminster'Columbian.  A few weeks ago the Liberal press  j of this  province   shouted   in   chorus  j that Premier McBride bad dished 'him- i  j self by refusing to accept as full settle-'!  Laurier for refusal to accept his ver-1  sion of the demands of this province, j  since Sir Wilfrid would say that the!  event   proved   that   the Premier   of'  British Columbia did not speak for the  people.     But   to  return   the -present;  administration by an increased major- j  ity must have the. effect of showing)  the Ottawa government that  we  are  in earnest,   and that we have got  to!  receive justice before any, bill such as  is   proposed   for   the , enrichment,   of  other   provinces  at  our expense  can  pass through the Imperial parliament  without the most strenuous opposition  on.the part of British Columbia.  Libera] papers which indulged the  'hope that the resignation of Hon:  R.. F. Green 'marked a crisis in the  B.

The attempt being  made by the Ottawa administration   to   coerce   this  province because they have formed in  the McBriele govei-nment a  body  of  men   who  will  stand   up  for   British  Columbia's  rights regardless    of   the  schemes  of   the    Ottawa    politicians,  should be resented  by  every voter in  British Columbia, and more particularly   by   those 'of    the    Siinilkameen.  The evidences that such   is meant, are  too palpable to admit of successful denial.     What is   this  evidence?     Mc-  funis is summoned from   the Yukon,  where he was in possession of a salary  of $10,000  per  year,  which  with perquisites   of   $2,000   more,   is said to  amount to $1.2,000 per annum.    Over  three years ago he was a rival of J. A.  McDonald for   the   leadership of the  opposition,   but   was   passed  over in  spite  of his greater ability,   because  the party   had   no   confielence  in  his  political morality.    That the relations  were   anything   but cordial  between  them during the  two  sessions of the  late parliamentary term is well known.  The next step  is  that an invitation is  purported to  have been   sent by McDonald to Mclnnis at Ottawa, inviting him to come and join  in the fight.  That McDonald's  invitation   was  dictated to him from  Ottawa goes without saying, find that it was notgiven-  to  McDonald  by  the  Ottawa   bosses  until a satisfactory quid  pro quo had  been arranged with Mclnnis   to let go  of the Yukon  stipend  is  also self-evident.    Now  what   is  the next step?  Mclnnis accepts and Ross andGalliher  form the advance guard  of  the solid  seven who it is arranged  are to leave  Ottawa, to  take,  part  in the  fight, instead of remaining at their posts to attend to the  alfairs  of  their   constituents, as they are paid to do.  ���������Rumors in the coast cities tell of an  enormous campaign fund, a considerable, portion of which is being supplied  by the big corporation who will have  further favors to ask from the Ottawa,  administration as well as from a government of similar stripe in British  Columbia, should the people- ol' this  province be foolish enough to elect-  such. Thou the additional motive for  tin  million dollars i  by Sir Wilfrid "Laurier through the j  conference of Premiers. The more insignificant the party organs, the  stronger Was the conviction that the  sin was unpardonable; to refuse a.  million dollars under any circumstances seemed to them the height of  folly. Surely the 111:111 must have  wanted to trump up a grievance!  they exclaimed.  But the men of British Columbia  have larger ideas than those expressed -  by the organs, and it soon became  eviilent that public opinion in British  Columbia was practically a unit in  endorsing the stand taken by our  Premier at Ottawa. The tune.of the  party press and platform exhorters  has changed accordingly. Having en ���������  deavored to make . a party issue  against Mr. McBride and his government, and having failed so, miserably,  thev are. alarmed lest the attitude of  the Ottawa government should boused against the party in provincial  affairs working in sympathy with Sir  Wilfrid, and 'now are crying out in  affected horror that a matter so dear  to the hearts of voters generally without regarel to politics, should be made  a football by the McBride party. This  is the silly protest being put about  by the Liberal campaigners in Dewel-  ney, who wish to deny to Mr. McBride, the member for that riding,  the credit that is his due. for the heroic  struggle he made for our rights at  Ol tawa, and have him remain silent  under the abuse and misrepresentation to which they give utterance on  this point.  Those on the Liberal stele who wish  to make sure that there is no appearance of making party capital out of  the better terms affair should get in  and work for the return of tiie McBride government by a majority so  large that it must be taken as representing the sentiments of Liberals as  well as Conservatives in this province.  There is no reason why any Liberal  should not vote for the McBride gov-  ceived more obloquy than is generally  bestowed upon a. malefactor, and this  in the absence of any direct proof of  allegations made against him, for the  Karen Island affair'and the Pendray  matter when sifted out showeel how  small and groundless need be the  charge upon which the Liberal ������������������.press'  of this province'will raise a hue aiitl  cry. The fact is they are mad that he  has gone out of the cabinet and robbeel  them of the Mrs. Anderson joker  which the j' had .hoped! was" to rake in  a heap of tricks for them; and now  they must face the fact that Mrs.  Anderson is left a legaov on their own  hands for W. C, Wells and other loud  shouting Liberal worthies to explain  away if they can.  HOTEL SIMILKAMEEN    flEDL&y, B. 6.    Hands off British Columbia!

The occasion, however, -didn't draw forth any  kick in Heelley,  but served to accentuate the fact that in   the long  time  that Welby's stage line has carrieel  the mails this is the first instance in  which  the   stage   has   failed to  get  through,    It is a good record and people here never seemed  to think   of it  until it was forceel on   their' attention  by the first failure to get through.  The Canadian Almanac for 1907; published by the Copp, Clark Co., of Toronto, is this year celebrating  its  elia-  mond jubilee, having been fi.st published in the fall  of 1S47 for  the year  1818.    The cover   is   a   beautiful  production of the designer's art,  in which  the diamond jubilee idea   is  kept consistently in view,   and   the contents  such as to render  the  book  indispensable in the office or the home,   for  it  is a wonderfully complete compendium  of   general    information.     To    even  enumerate the headings under which  useful information is compiled  would  take considerable space, but a special  feature of this number is a historical  review of Canada eluring   the   past 60  years   by Prof.   Wrong,   M.

The Princeton Star  Badly in Need of a  Tutor���������Here is a Sample  of All the  Editor Can Wage Against  The Government.  The Star in its issue of December  27th, does the best it win to find some  peg upon which to hang an excuse for  a kick against the McBride government, and it found one.   Here it is:  "TlIK   VKll'Y   IDEA "OF   UHlXOIXGON  an Jsr.EC"n6x within a fohtniout ok  ���������tub nominations shows that the  Government believe that their only  chance of victory lies in finding the  Liberals unprepared, and also to prevent an exposure of their rottenness  on the public platform. This is what  McBriele would style 'British Fair  Play'".  Well the election law of British  Columbia says, in Chapter (17),. Section (50):  '���������In all Electoral Districts; at a general election, the day for holding the  polls shall be the fourteenth day next  after the expiration of the day fixed  for the nomination of candidates, exclusive of such nomination clay, or if  such fourteenth day lie a statutory holiday, then on the next following-clay  not being a holiday ; and at any election other than a general election the  day so fixed upon which the poll shall  , be opened shall be the nearest date  practicable subsequent to the nomination day, not being a statutory holiday."  This has always been the practice in  British Columbia, for the. revised  statutes of 1897, in Chapter (67), of  which , the statute of 1003, above  epioted, is simply an amendment, says  in Section (52):  "In all Electoral Districts, except  the Electoral District of Cassiar, at a  general election the day for holding  the polls shall be the fourteenth elay  next after the expiration of the elay  fixed for the nominations of candidates,'exclusive-of such nomination  day, or if such fourteenth day be,a  statutory holiday, then on the next  following day not being a holiday;  anel at an election other than a general election the elay so fixed Upon  which the pollshall be openeel shall be  nearest date practicable subsequent to  the nomination dav, not being a statutory holiday. C'! A. 1888, c. 39, ss.  22 A: 27."  And 'furthermore the general practice in Ontario and eastern provinces-  has been to allow only one week between nomination day and election  day, so that Canadians from Mr.  Laurier down, must have an extraordinary conception of what the Star  considers "British Fair Play".  But how would it be if Mr. Shatford  had done ' as Duncan Ross did, anel  have secured the postponement of the  election in the Similkameen until a  ���������mouth later. With the McBride government returned by a splendid majority as it is sure to be, where would  a Liberal candidate in the Similkameen come in, anil how the Star would  howl in such a case. But even if it  were possible for Mr. Shatford to secure this (which it is not for the McBride government have too high regard for "British fair play" to have  the law so that so base an act would  be possible) there is not one of Mr.  Shatford's supporters who would stiffen him to do it. To win an election  by playing the game with loaded dice  is something the conservative party  will never tolerate, and that act perpetrated in 190-1: upon the electorate of  Yale-Cariboo will be remembered to  its present representative as long as  his name is Duncan Ross.  Is  A  And  Safe   Investment  Hedley  Make  Money  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.' It is the mining and business  centre of the  Similkameen  the new mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed  Goast-Kootenay Railway; anel with the advent of this roael,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a huge and important city, anel town lots '-will' bring  big returns on money invested-at-the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...

Columbia, to prevent any possibility  of fraud, require all to be proof reael  bv the registrar before being printed.  But for this elelav in transmission of.  proof the lists could be turned out  several elays sooner, but will all be  completeel and in the hands of the  z-egistrar for distribution in ample  time to suit even the recpiirements of  the Star, which has admitted that "at  least a fortnight before the elections"  will be satisfactory to it.  HOW THE COLD  SNAP WORKS.  THE VOTERS  LIST HOOEY  Again in its last issue the Star pretends to have eliscovered a mare's nest  in connection with printing the voters'  list, which it says, "will not lie. obtainable, at least by the opponents of the  government until a few days of the  "election," and goes on to say that  some underhand work was being  done." Who told the Star that the  lists would not he obtainable until a  few days before the election ?  In this matter the Star exhibits  more ignorance even than that displayed in connection with the dates of  nominations and election. If its editor were a little better posted he  would not make, such exhibitions of  himself. In this case it was impossible to have all the lists done by the  King's printer and the proofs reael by  registrars, in time for use, and hence  the plan was adopted of having each  list done, in its own riding. The law  provides for the registrar making  transfers within 30 days of the election, anel even while the Star was  howling about this matter some of the  latest names for transfer were on the  way between the Registrar at Fair-  view, and the printers at Hedley.  When the Star hints at "doctoring  lip voters lists" it is evidently think-  about the methods of its friends in  Ontario, Saskatchewan and elsewhere,  who proved themselves adepts in all  methods of crookedness by which to  rob the electors of their franchise  rights, but the government of British  All records for cold in the Similka-  moL'U, both for severity anel eluration,  have been easily outdone by the present cold snap. Fancy the average  minimum for the whole of last week  figuring out to a minus (piantity,  which it has clone this time, both at  the mine and the mill, with a possibility of this week's average minimum  | readings being very near the zero  ! mark either way. It has hit the Daly  Reduction Co. pretty hard, and the  wonder is that they managed to keep  the mill pounding away through it all.  On Saturday morning it became evident that the steam plant could not  supplv the full electric current required and keep the mill and cyanide  plant from freezing up as a veil, and  Mr. Hoi brook who was acting manager  in Mr, Ross' absence decided that it  would be necessary to cut off the town  Iights,notice to Avhich effect avus sent  over town early in the day to enable  all users of light to make other arrangements. Even at this time the  possibility of the spell continuing so  long was ncA'er thought of, but what  is more uncertain than the weather?  Should a decided raise in the temperature not come soon, the gravest fears  are entertained as to the water portion of the power plant.  To make good bread you  must have good flour.
