Of the long list "of ; grievances which  Duncan Ross had against the Gazette,  some of them were straight falsehoods  with not a vestige of a peg upon which  to hang them. AH the others were  so dishonestly, put as to amount to  worse than falsehoods. No opportunity was given to deal with them  seriatim, foi* he squealed enough,;  before we had an opportunity to more  than begin with this phase of his long  speech. If we had any thought that  the audience believed him we would  now deal with them in the Gazette by  producing from the files the exact;'  words and allow bin* readers to judge  but we infuse to believe that the audience really took any stock in what he  said, and space is too precious to waste  on liini.

Premier McBride's tour of the, constituencies of the interior continues  one unbroken triumph. After doing  the Kootenavs and the Boundary,  where he gave E. G. Warren a lift at  -Greenwood, he entered Siniilkaineen  at Rock Creek, where a rousing meeting was held, which was addressed by  Mr. McBride and Mr. Shatford.  - At Fairview he addressed a meeting  at which Smith Curtis was present.  to  hi in   as a professional   politician,  which   term    he   repudiated, v   Land  grafts, he said, had been killed by hiih.'  Although in the four years he was in  the legislature he belonged to the opposition, he had not been under McBride, who -came over to him.   The  McBride Government, he claimed, was  a petty department of  the   C. P. R.  He attacked the * government's timber  policy and claimed that the stumpage  charged should be $1.50 per M. instead  oL 50 cents and said that/ lumbermen  would be willingly to give $5.00 per M.  stuinpage.    He referred to the course  he intended to pursue if elected as "my  platform."   He dealt with  wild hind  tax and referred to Mr. Shatford as a  grafter on the ground that tlie Price  estate at Keremeos in which Mr. Shatford was interested was not assessed  high enough.    He attacked the Duns-  I'nuir exetnptions and said that Governor Dunsniuir was  the  greatest tax-  dodger in B. C.

Word conies from Greenwood that  seems almost incredible, but the information conies so direct and is so  absolutely vouched for that it is impossible to doubt it.  Geo. R. Naden, mayor of Greenwood, and Liberal candidate in the  Greenwood rifling, who left his own  riding and went into Siniilkaineen riding to help Smith Curtis against Mr.  Shatford, making a trip up the Kettle river and addressing a meeting at  Rock Creek in company with Smith  Curtis, said at a public meeting iu  Greenwood:  "The ore tonnage of Hedley Camp  for the next ten years will not pay the  axle grease to the railway hauling it."  Why Mr. Naden should see fit to express himself in this way is inexplicable. We do not know what particular point he was trying to make  when he said it, but we do know that  he has been long enough in tlie West  to know that expressions of this .kind  should never be used without abso-  lute knowledge as to their truthfulness, and Mr. Naden's knowledge of  this camp is not .sufficient to warrant  him in saying it.  This axle grease conception seems to  be as high as a Liberal's confidence in  the province can soar. * From its  first entrance into Confederation, British Columbia has had to struggle  against this persistent belittleinent of  its resources and capabilities on the  part of the Liberals, from Hon. Edward Blake who tried to have the  Dominion repudiate its obligation to  build the transcontinental railway,  when he said that the railway would  not pay grease for the wheels, to Geo.  R. Naden who has given this last unkind slap at Camp Hedley.  Apart from the injury which he has  thus wantonly, endeavored to inflict  upon this camp the people of Greenwood will have no reason to thank him  for this kind of thing. Now that the  railway is to connect the Boundary  with Siniilkaineen points the prospect  would under ordinary conditions be  fair for Greenwood business men to  extend their trade in this direction,  but if this be the sentiment entertained by their civic head and their would  be representative, towards this camp,  Hedley people will at all events think  twice about it.  Hedley, B. C, Jan. 11th, 1907,  At a convention of the Conservative party held  at Fairview the 10th inst., I was again selected to  contest the Similkameen. I am therefore the candidate of the Conservative party at the coming Provincial Election and respectfully solicit your vote and  influence. It seems imperative that I should stand a  second time as it is my wish to have the electors  declare by their vote on February 2nd if I have or  have not given the necessary attention to Similkameen  interests during the life of the last Parliament.  By my record I am quite pi*epared to be judged.  My stand in connection with railroads, all agree, has  been in the best interests of the Province and Similkameen   in   particular.       That   I   have   earnestly  advocated the special needs of the Similkameen before the Government is shown in the largely increased  appropriations   which have been granted.    As you  may know I have resided in the district for some 14  years  and am largely interested in its agricultural,  mining   and   commercial   development.     I   entered  parliament as a business man prepared to devote his  best energies to securing a business like government,  not  as  a politician looking for place with "axe to  grind."    Should your verdict approve of my course in  the past, I assure you my best, efforts will again be  given to securing from Parliament what I deem in  the best, interests of my Constituency.    I shall endeavor to see you personally before election day, but  as the. riding is a large one and a short three weeks  remain to get over it, it is possible I may not be able  to see every voter.    Polling places, 1 am sure, will be  established at most convenient points and I hope you  will not only vote early yourself but see that all our  friends also vote.    Again, respectfully soliciting your  vote and influence, I remain,  Yours truly,  L. W. Shatfoki").  In the   Fairview meeting the chair was him.  occupied by H. H. Parkinson. Mr.  Curtis kicked at being limited to half  an hour and was allowed an hour  which he over-ran about ten minutes.  The meeting did not begin until after  one. o'clock and after the Premier had  replied there was limited time to reach  Keremeos in time for the evening  meeting, and as a result it was late  when the meetine- began.  AT  KEREMEOS.  The school at Keremeos in which  the meeting was held, was packed to  the door, a plentiful sprinkling of  ladies being present.  Dr. McEwen occupied the chair, and  owing to the lateness of the hour for  starting the meeting, it was necessary  to limit the time of the opposition candidates, Messrs. Curtis and Winkler to  an hour which they agreed to divide  up so as to give Curtis forty .minutes  and Winkler twenty, but as Mr. Curtis  over-ran his time considerably he had  nearly tlie full hour.  Mr. Curtis opened by complaining  that at Fairview the premier referred  He expressed again the fear  that he might be defeated by an  attempt of the C. P. R. to corrupt* the  electorate. In London, Ontario, it had  been shown that in the Hyman  election C. P. R. money had been buying votes for Hyman at $10 each and  that twice the sum had also been  spent by the C. P. R. in the same  election for the election of Hynian's  opponent Grey, but that Grey's heelers  had shoved it down and the voters  didn't get anv of it. Winkler, he was  pleased to learn, was repudiating  Hawthornwaite.  Mr. Winkler thought when nominated that he was the only Socialist candidate in the Siniilkaineen, but from  claims alleged to have been made by  Mr. Shatford of being a Socialist at  heart and from the platform of Smith  Curtis, it appeared that there were  three. Mr. Curtis' platform showed  petty larceny from the Socialist platform, Curtis had declared for government ownership of public utilities and  had specified that telephone should  be taken over at once.    In this M>.  (Continued on pajje ono of supplement).  bright indeed.    We. are not so absurd  as to claim that this is due to local influences entirely.   The whole country  is buoyant, and this province feels the  beneficial result.   Yet this is not the  whole truth.    A general wave of prosperity has before now been diverted  from its natural course by unwise legislation   iind  blundering   administration.    The   history   of  all   countries  shows this.   Suppose that bad laws had  been placed upon the statute books of  this province, that the administration  of the public departments had been  careless, inefficient or dishonest, that  the public finances had not been'.pro-.'  perlv handled, that there had been ho  effort made to   take advantage of ii  period of general prosperity to make  known the great resources of the province, there would have been a different story to tell.   Perhaps a government  may   not   be   able   to   create  prosperity to any great extent, but it  can avoid placing obstacles in the way  of progress, it can smooth the way for  enterprise, it can keep the public credit  high, it can establish a, feeling of confidence in  the administration of the  laws and hi the soundness of its own  policy, and thus it can contribute, indirectly, it is true,  but none the less  most effectively, to the promotion of  the general welfare.    This tlie present  local government can justly claim to  have done ; this is all that any government* can hope to do.  When Mr. McBride took office, the  financial condition of the province was  very serious. It was idle to talk about  our great resources, idle to speak of  the wonderful things that would be  accomplished in the future, as long as  there was a;big balance on the. wrong  side of the provincial ledger, and a  large amount of banking capital, that  might have been loaned out to business  men, was locked up in a government  overdraft. The Jirst duty of Mi-.  McBride and his colleagues was to set  this matter right. It was a. duty that  was not a very agreeable one. It-involved the curtailing of expenditure  and the recasting of a. considerable extent of the system of taxation, but the  government grappled courageously  with the task, and every one knows  the excellent results that have been  achieved. This of itself was an act of  administration for which the government deserves the thanks of the whole  province and. a renewal of confidence  for another term.  After dealing, at considerable lentrth  with each department of the Government and showing what each minister  had done the Colonist goes on to say :  " In view of these things, it is not a  matter of surprise that conditions in  British Columbia are highly satisfactory.    The  people feel safe.    All the  unrest and uncertainty that characterized  the  years previous to 1903 have  vanished,  and   opponents as well as  friends of the government feel that in  Mr. McBride's hands the  interests of  the   province,  as far   as   they   come  within the scope of the local government,   are   perfectly   safe.    For   this  reason   we   anticipate    a    very   pronounced   victory   for   the   provincial  government  at   the   elections.     The  people of British Columbia have had  enough of  political confusion;   they  have seen enough political experiments  tried.    They are not disposed to adopt  any course that will disturb the existing   safe   and   satisfactory   state   of  things.   Naturally the Conservatives  will rally to the support of the government ; but we look for more than this.  We look with great confidence  to a  large support from men, who usually  vote with the Liberal Party, men who  believe it would be a serious error to  try any political change, while everything is going along as well as  it "is  now.   The Opposition has not developed any line of policy for which they  can ask public   endorsement.     They  may   at the last moment  frame up  something that will look like a policy,  but it is too late in the day to do that  and. gain any support.   They will be  judged by their record in the legislature, and tried bv this, they will be  found badly wanting.    We enter the  campaign with every assurance of a  great government victory.

Don't allow the Ottawa machine to  "dictate in this  province in provincial  affairs.  are a British Columbian by voting for  a McBride candidate.  The Greenwood Ledge refers to  Billy Mclnness as " 'the boy orator'  and the man who never was known to  refuse a cabinet* position."  Any artist whose imagination is  equal to the task of painting a picture  of A. E. Howse,. voting for Charles  Semlin has the opportunity of making  a good thing. There are many people  who would would give a whole lot for  such a picture.  The party that Mr. Curtis will support if elected, is the party in open  alliance with the Ottawa machine that  is bent upon despoiling this province.  The larger McBride's majority, the  more effective will be the rebuke upon  the Ottawa machine for daring to  threaten provincial rights in this province.  At Hedley Mr. Curtis had no objection, to urge against the building of  the Twenty-niiie wagow road, but at  Princeton where he thought he could  make some capital out of it, he attacked  the building'of" the'road; very fiercely.  The part of Mr. Curtis' moral training  which he assures us was so carefully  attended to in his youth, that impelled  him to this course concerning the  Twenty-mile wagon road, must have  been St. Paul's injunction to Timothy :  "Be all things unto all men if happily  you 'might gain some." Mr. Shatford's I  Sunday School teacher unfortunately  had kept him too long in the beatitudes  and the four gospels, and didn't give  him a square show to get up on the  finer points of old Paul's theology, for  he is prepared to tell the same thing  in all parts of tin* riding, knowing as  he does that impartial distribution has  been made.  asking support of the labor class and  he was glad to learn from Mclnnes  that their assistance was   not wanted.

If the people of Persia, or "Abdul  the damned," of Turkey, should be in  need of a cubinet minister any time  after the 2nd of February, they will  be pleased to learn that W. W. B.  Mclnnes " the boy orator and the man  who was never known to refuse a  cabinet position," will be open for engagement after that date.  A. 10. How.se. of Nicola, is pledged to  support Charlie Semlin, in West Yale.  In an evil moment before the Conservative conyention in West Yale was  held, when Hie. A. Fraser was considered a likely candidate, Howse was  voluble in his disapproval, and said  that if the Conservatives would bring  out Charlie .Semlin he would vote for  him. It is now up to him to deliver  the goods.  A vote for Smith Curtis is a vote  against the McBride government. A  vote against the McBride government  at the present time is the most effective way in which you could tell Laurier  and the Ottawa machine that so far as  you are concerned he is at liberty to  rob this province at will; to insult us  by offering ,$100,000 per year for ten  years in full of our claim against the  Dominion when they hold $10,000,000  that properly belongs to us and to  even interfere in our provincial  elections.  Further Bon bons for Billy Mclnnes by  the Liberal  Candidate for  Similkameen.      How   Outsiders   View  Smith   Curtis'   Position  in this Matter.  Grand Forks Gazette.  Quite naturally a lot is being said in  the papers on the return of W. W. B.  Mclnnes to provincial politics. In Mr.  Mclnnes' case the liberals have made a  fatal mistake. Hitherto much stress,  and rightly, has been laid on the  strong personal character of the leader  of the opposition. The good effect of  such mi argument is now entirely  offset by the importation of a politician whose record is known throughout the length and breadth of the land.  We all know how bitterly Mr. Mclnnes railed at Mr. Dunsniuir the land  baron, employer of Chinese labor, etc.  We also know that when his interests  were subserved thereby he switched to  the support of Mr. Dunsniuir, stumped  Victoria in support of Col. Prior, who  was advocating the huge land grant to  the Canadian Northern, and subsequently accepted a position in the  Prior cabinet.  No wonder Smith Curtis, who was  in opposition at the time, and knew  Mclnnes from the ground up,-said of  him : " Just as I have opposed Joseph  Martin, and 011 the same grounds, I  will always oppose Mclnnes having  any directing hand in the Liberal  party, because I. have for the very best  of reasons and upon incontrovertible  evidence lost all confidence in him, and  KXOW THAT THAT CONKIDENCE CAX  NEVER  HE  RESTORED."  Mr. Curtis, who is now the Liberal  candidate, in Similkameen, closed his  famous utterance on Mclnnes in 1003  by saying : '���������Another general appeal  to the electorate is likely to come at an  early date, and to win, the liberals  must have a. leader with a clean'  record, acceptable to all the party, a.nd  Mclnnes is not the man,"  How Smith Curtis could conceivably  sit in the same House and on the same  side, with a man of this icind is one of  those, mysteries which can only be. ox-  plained by the existence of a common  and fierce desire to obtain office at any  price.  Qn all occasions of public moment,  popular feeling seeks to express itself  in verse; Usually election poetry is  evanescent and dies with the event  which it essays to celebrate, but when  all coarseness and malevolence is ele-  minated and there is pith and point as  in the Bigelowpapers.it may live.

Demanded an election;  The Grits of eoui-se, came "out in force.  With tales of Green's defection.  They said that he, the G. T. 1*..     *  Had helped to our depletion;  The Kaien deal, they loudly squeal,  Should never see completion.  O'er Pcndray lots, they shoot hot shots,  About McDonald's tender:  And Mrs. A , they-freely say.  Is of our wealth a spender.  With might and main, despite the stain.  These "dirty-dust-heap" rakers;  Give schools a crack, and then attack.  The C. and W. acres.  Now hig-h now low, they grov'lling go,  Knslinied with mud they've spattered:  And blindly think, 'twill be like ink.  And stay where it is scattered.  They have no aim, beyond thc game.  Of vile calumniation;  No act of good, whereby they would.  Achieve our great salvation.  Why then should we, the great, the free.  And circumspect electors;  Give our support, to such a sort.  Of "peeping Tom" detectors.  Nay rather aid, thc man who's made,  Fatness where it was lean ;  And so with pride, we'll help McBride,  In thc Similkameen. <  ���������Cogito Ergo Sum.  S C .

The bride looked charming in a very  pretty gown of white crepe dechehe,  trimmed with silk applique. She also  wore the conventional tulle veil and  wreath. As the-bride walked up the  aisle, leaning on the arm of Mr. J. D.  Brass, a wedding march was played  by Miss Ruth Bowerinan.  The church was very prettily decorated for the occasion, and a. beautiful  evex'green arch, and bell hung over the  bridal couple during the service. - After the ceremony, a few friends of the  bride and groom repaired to the home  of the bride, where a dainty wedding  supper Avas spread, and owing to the  recent bereavment in the -family, the  evening was .very quietlv but pleasantly spent.

HENRY  3010 Westminster Road.    Vancouver. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, JANUARY 24,   1907.  PRINCETON MEETING.  Smith Curtis Fails to Get All His Own  Way in the Coal Town���������W. C. Mc-  Dougall Straightens Him Up and  Prepares Him for What He  May Expect on Election Day.  When this meeting came to order on  the Kith  with  Mr.   Wright, ex-editor  of the Star, in the chair, Mr.  Grigor,  of Rossland,   liberal organizer for the  province, first addressed  the meeting.  During his address he not only lauded  Mr. Curtis, but gave  the   audience! to  understand that ho was a .particularly  .desirable     person   himself.     Me  also  told how he and Curtis actually quarrelled once about some  little political  matter, but in spite of all that, he was  there to support Mr. Curtis and to induce the people of thi.*-  riding to elect  him instead fit" Shatford  at ''the coining election.    That was as far as Mr.  Grigor's  confidences   went,    although  no one doubts that had ho been willing  he could have given the audience some  very entertaining information regarding cainpain  funds  and   whence they  were obtained.    It  was   evident that  the bulk  of the audience were sceptical about it being simply   pure adora  tion of Curtis that brought Mr. Grigor  to Princeton.    .Every, one knew it was  not only an expensive,   but a* cold trip  with the  thermoinetqr ranging 80 degrees below zero, and   that the majority oi* liberals "would  require  stimulation in the region of the pocket as well  as a big cargo .of admiration   for any  one to make the trip  Mr.  Grigor had  undertaken.  After Mr. Grigor had used up his 25  minutes Mr. Curtis took the floor and  for nearly , two hours entertained the  audience with his views regarding the  McBride government. That his views  did not, and do not coincide with, those  of the government was plain, and it is  undoubtedly for the benefit of the  country that Mr. Curtis is where he is,  and Mr. McBride at the head of the  government. Mr. Curtis also reiterated his .much repeated ambition to  meet Mr. McBride and Mr. Shatford  biv the platform and thrash the matter  out. He said he expected Mr. McDou*-  gall, who was present, to reply for Mr.  Shatford, hut didn't seem to see that  h'e could do much good by doing so.  At the close of Mr. Curtis' florid address, the chairman called on Mr. Mc-  Doug.-ill. On arising he said, that as  the'hour was very late he would get  down to business at once and finish as  quickly as possible.  Three years ago  they  had  elected  Mr. Shatford, an untried man,  to support an untried government.    No government in tlie history of the province  had ever been called upon to meet such  an abnormal  state  of affairs  as confronted    the    McBride    government.  The  province   was   practically  bankrupt, not  only   that,   but large sums  were due aud accruing,  the. treasury  empty and the provincial credit practically worthless.    In the face of these  almost unsurinountable dfficulties the  McBride government, with only a bare  majortiy took  hold.     They   floated,  locally, a   million  dollar  loau  at five  percent,    hi   this   connection it must  not be overlooked, that  while the opposition  throughout the.country had  attacked  the government for the alleged high rate at which they had borrowed this million dollars,  they utterly neirlected to point out the fact that  the loan was entirely clear of brokerage   and   underwriting   charges   and  that the   whole   million  dollars went  into the treasury,  making this loan,  from a financial  standpoint, about as  profitable as any loan obtained by the.  government, even  when   the financial  credit stood  high   in the money markets.  With this loan   completed   the next  obstacle,   the accruing   debts of   the  province, and provision  for the, essential   annual   expenditure,    had  to he  taken up.    To  meet  this   the government chose the  courageous and practical method  of making  receipts bal-  lance   expenditures.    In   order   to do  this they were  forced  to  increase Untaxes along   all  lines   throughout tlie  province.    In spite of  the dismal prophesies of the. opposition this practical  business   course   of   the   government  proved eminently  successful.    Every  obligation was promptly  met,  allowances for a   year,   for roads, etc., was  cut down, but the next year were increased and this year, the third in the  history  of the McBride government,  the expenditure  on account   of public  works was large and as  nearly adequate as they ever had been in the history of the province.  Not only this, but during the two  last years the finance minister had  been able to meet the house with a  surplus. That was the kind of a business government we. had in this province today, it was the government  Mr. Shatford  suppoi bid.    It was the  I  PROPERTY IN HEDLEY  Is  A  Good,  Safe   1  And  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on wliich is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold niine in Canada���������and many other  promising * mines and prospects. It is the mining and business  centre, of the  Similkameen  Make  Money  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  Coast-Kootenay Railway ;   and with the advent of this road,  which is assured in  the near future,   it will unquestionably'  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ���������mEBsasassBsafBa  ...PRICE OF LOTS...

SHATFORD, ���������     -. ^ HPni   P#  Secretary and flanager, iiL<l/iiri^l f  government that made the province  respected at home and abroad, and revived the confidence of investors  abroad to such an extent that money  for all legitimate purposes was readily  obtained here today.  Compare this with the conditions of  the province during the time Mr. Curtis was in the house, when he and  Martin and others were wrangling  among themselves and tampering with  the provincial laws to such an extent  as to utterly ruin the confidence of investors, and especially those from outside the province.  The McBride government had remedied these evils by bringing about  the present stable provincial conditions, and it was this government  that Mr. Shatford supported and Mr.  Curtis proposed to supplant with himself and his so called fellow liberals.  Speaking of liberals Mr. McDougall  remarked that none should deceive  themselves in regard to present day  liberalism. Liberalism of today did  not compare in the least with liberalism under George Brown and Alex.  McKenzie. What* we have today, said  Mi\ McDougall,; is ' not liberalism but  Laurierism, wliich is stretching out its  talons to encircle every province within the Dominion and rob us of provincial rights. We only have to refer to  the advent of W. VV. B. Mclnnis, and  the Laurierite members of the Ottawa  house in this campaign, to realize that  a determined effort was being made to  fasten the fangs of Laurierism on this  province.  Proceeding, Mr. McDougall, dealt  with better terms and the Kaien island  deal, justifying the government's action in both these matters and condemning absolutely the tactics of the  "band of scandal mongers and political falsifiers," who were leading the  opposition. Unable to produce a sane  policy they resorted in their desperation, to scandal nionging and falsehood, dead to the fact that it was not  the McBride government they injured,  but instead the fair fame and clean  name of the orovince.  With regard to railways and Mr.  Shatford's action in supporting the V.  V, & E. in the legislature, his course  was honest j'.nd true and redeems his  election promises, that he would support the V. V. & E., in the effort to  build through the valley. They were  building today, thanks to Mr. .Shatford's action in the legislature, which  prepared the way for Mi*. Ross' efforts  at Ottawa.  If Mr. Ross would not support the  V. V. & E., at Ottawa, what on earth  would he support there. Mr. Curtis  claimed that the conservative members, at Ottawa, opposed the V; V. &  E., but the speaker pointed out that it  was Mr.  Fitzpatrick,  the then minis  ter of justice, that held the V. V.'& E.  up, and that Mr. Ross should have attacked.  As far as the Columbia & Western  land grant was concerned, Mr. Mc-  Dougal, pointed out that the McBride  government was simply carrying out  the agreements entered into by a previous government. It was, under the  conditions governing this Columbia  & Western railway a matter, a case of  the provinces honestly carrying out its  undertakings or repudiation. The  straightforward and honorable course  had been chosen in this as in all other  matters done by the McBride administration, and the consequence was the  proviuce was not only self-respecting,  but retained the respect of men of affairs everywhere.  Concluding, Mr. McDougall, paid a  well deserved tribute to Mr. Shatford.  who had so honestly and competently  represented the constituency during  the past* three vears. It was perfectly  true that Mr. Shatford did not pose in  vote catching addresses on the. floor of  the house, but, instead, he was one of  the men who attended to the really  hard work of the house, in the caucuses and committees, where every  one knew the real work of the session  was always done. Mr. McDougall  urged a strong united vote for Mr.  Shatford on the 2nd day of February  and the consequent turning down of  the omniisaries of Laurierism. Mr.  McDougall then thanked the meeting  for its attention at that late hour and  resumed his seat. Cheers for the King,  the chairman and a weak attempt at  one for Curtis, closed the meeting.  &***ym&to*������r*������*i*w**^^  The Commercial Hotel  Hedley,   B.C.
