Lamb in threatening to discontinue the lights on the  1st of November; and also to the /dissatisfaction iii.a n ifested thereat on the  part of business men who had paid all  summer the full price for lights, had  paid for- the wiring of their buildings  and were indignant that any mean advantage should be taken of them by  deprivingthem of the Use. of the light  at this season of'the year. Since then  the town has had further examples of  the length to which jietty spite will  go, when, after tlie . usual current  monthly statement for water and  light was received with the customary  intiniation that discount of 10% would-  be given if paid on or before the 20th,  another set of arbitrary notices (or  rather coarse -threats, for .the.courtesy  B.

Penticton, B.C.  The provincial premiers were entertained at a banquet in Ottawa, given  by the Canadian Club, and while all  the premiers took a hand in the speak-,  ing, the addresses of Roblin and McBride, who were the leading champions of the west, seem to have drawn  special attention.  Premier Roblin wascalled upon and  was given a splendid' reception. He  said there, was just enough of the republic in Canada to give us freedom  and just enough monarchy to give us  solidity and permanency. Canada's  horizon was widening: and her possibilities could scarcely be realized. In  the prairie provinces there was a kingdom to develop. By some authorities  it was computed they contained 150,-  000,000 acres of arable land. Even if  that estimate were cut in two, what  did it mean? From seven million  acies this year there had been produced 1S5,000,000 bushels of grain.  What would 150,000,000 acres produce ?  At least two billion bushels of grain���������  an amount which justified the statement that the granary for the British  empire was west of Lake Superior.  Mr.   Roblin   referred   in   a  jocular  maniier to the immigrants coming hi  from the civilized and taking uncivilized portions of the world.-   The aim  should be to make them good Canai  dians���������to  teach them  to cherish the  flag which was the symbol of liberty  and toleration ; and in this great work  the  Canadian  Clubs could render inestimable, service (prolonged applause).  Premier McBride. of British- Columbia made a marked impression.   He  referred to the necessity of building  up a strong Canadian sentiment from  the Atlantic to the Pacific and to the  responsibility   of   Canadians   of the  Pacific coast in increasing and maintaining the prestige properly belonging to British Columbia.   He alluded  in glowing terms to the potentialities  and possibilities of  the   West.     The  responsibility of its development belonged  to all Canada.     He declared  amid applause,   that a Canadian was  not a true and stalwart subject who  had not travelled from ocean to ocean.  Mr. McBride spoke, of the. necessity  of increased subsidies to assist British  Columbia in developing  its resources  and to enable it to meet fully the responsibilities  imposed   upon   it.     He  spoke   confidently   of   receiving   fair  treatment at the hands of the sister  provinces and federal authorities, and  intimated   that   their   duty   was   to  amend the constitution from time to  time to adapt it to  growing requirements of the. Dominion, (applause)  Premiers Peters ( P. E. I.), Rutherford (Alberta), Scott (Sask.), and Mr.  Hainar Greenwood, M. P., having  spoken, the proceedings closed with  the National Anthem.  of a notice was lacking) stating that  light and water would be discontinued  October 10th unlesspaidon or before  that date.    And here it may be- mentioned tha.t this so-called discount for  advance payment was ho discount at  all inasmuch as 10% was added to the  old price on running account so that-  when the fictitious discount was deducted it amounted to the same thing.  To show that in this matter the man  was as devoid of common sense as he  was of the ordinary fairness which  is  supposed to exist among business men  in their intercourse and dealings with  each other, he was prepared, to hold  that inasmuch as his threatening notice stated that the lights would be  "discontinued October Kith if not paid  on or before   that date" he had the  right to cut them olf on  the morning  of the 16th.    That he didn't dare to do  so was due only to the fact that he  found he had to  do with  men  who  would have put him in the small debts  court in two hours' time.  It is disagreeable to have to refer,to  these things, and the Gazette regrets  that the name- of an important corporation like the. Daly Reduction Co.  should be dragged into publicity in  such connection, but' it is one. of the  inevitable ill consequences of pitch,  forking a man into a. position that he  is not fitted for. His conduct shortly  after reaching 'here, and the numerous  notices posted up in all conceivable  places in and about the works forbidding the public to enter- without permission from hiih, (as'if the people of  Hedley were in the. habit of carrying  off stamp mills) convinced the most  casual observer that a position of such  authority was something hew to him  and he wanted to make the most of it.  And the dilligeuce which he has displayed, especially during the past few  weeks in devising means of irritating  the people would look as if he is afraid  he may never get another.  So far as the attitude of the town  towards the company is concerned  there is nothing . but good-will. In  fact it is in consideration for the company that the main deeails are concealed in explaining why the  manager is so universally disliked  ,   (Victoria Times 1  Ottawa, Oct. 9.���������The conference of  provincial premiers met at 10 o'clock  tliis morning.

The Value of Output Will Surpass That  of 1905  general  KEREMEOS NOTES.  R fl. WRIGHT  BOOT &  SHOE MAKER  HEDLEY, B.C.  A mandolin club is talked of by  some of the music-loving, to beguile  the long winter evenings.  The hospital is looming up in fine  shape and the contractors are hustling  it on as vapidly as possible. Now that  the building itself has drawn public  attention to the location, some are  speculating upon what kind of an ambulance will be best suited to convey  patients from the town.  Work is proceeding on the V. V. cfc  E. grade, where good progress is being  made. The steam shovel spent last  week cutting its way along the river  bank from the east side of the. gravel  bench to the west side, and is now cut-  into tin1 bank on the grade from the  west side and using the dirt to level  up the station   grounds.  Last week Mr. .las. H. Kennedy,  Chief Engineer of the V. V. & E., accompanied by Mr. C. E. Hogeland,  Chief Engineer of the Great Northern  system, paid Keremeos a. visit and inspected the, work in progress. While,  here they met A. E. Baldwin engineer  in charge of the survey parties operating beyond Princeton, who had been  sent for. It is generally understood  that Mr. Baldwin submitted data, to  them which would enable them to determine whether the route to be followed west of Princeton would be that  by way of Otter Valley and the Ooqui-  halla or the Southern route by the  South fork of the Similkameen and  Cedar Flat. It was also stated that  while, here it was decided to put in a  Y which has encouraged the conclusion that Keremeos will be a terminal  point for a short time at least.  Premier McBride is insisting on special terms for his province because of  the increased cost of administration on  account of the size and other difficulties connected with government.  There is .talk from that proviuce of  the necessity of a commission being  appointed to look into the position so'  that better terms may be secured.  : R. L. Borden gave a luncheon to the  premiers at 1 o'clock hi the senate  restaurant.  The provincial conference'" resumed  at 3 o'clock. It is said British Columbia is still holding out against the  resolutions.    .        ,  (Victoria Colonist) ' .;''  Ottawa, Oct. 10--Sir Wilfrid Laurier  aud his colleagues met the. provincial  representatives this morning, when  bhey were formally presented with  the resolution agreed upon 'fit yesterday's meeting. The speakers were  Premier's Gouin and Whitney.  It is understood that the suggestion  was made to the federal ministers that  in case the Dominion government concurs in  the views  of the conference  with reference to a readjustment of  financial relations a measure should be  submitted to the Dominion parliament  next session authorizing the payment  of increased subsidies and allowances  as may be determined upon, pending  an amendment, to the British North  America  Act,  if such amendment be  deemed necessary.    The latter point  will have to  be carefully considered  and probably will have, to be referred  to  the law officers of the Crown in  England.    It would take considerable  time  to determine  the question and  probably not for two years could the  British North America Amending Act  be passed if necessary.   In the meantime, therefore, unless the suggestions  of the conference regarding legislation  next session were carried out, the payment of increased subsidies would be  deferred for two years.  Premier McBride of British Columbia was given an opportunity of presenting the special claims of that- province, which he did in a very convincing manner. The western premier is  thoroughly au fait with his subject  aud had many facts and figures in  support of his contention.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier made a guarded  reply. He intimated that in the event  of the Dominion authorities acceding  to the request of the provinces for increased subsidies it must be in a spirit  of compromise. One of the concessions which he suggested the provinces  should give to the Dominion was the  right to incorporate all companies aud  the abandonment of all legislation like  the tax on commercial travellers.  R.   L.  Borden  to-night entertained  "British Columbia's mineral production this year promises to considerably  exceed  that, of any'previous year in  the history of mining in the province"  said E.  Jacobs,  editor of the British  Columbia Mining Record, when asked  by a Nelson  Daily News reporter a  few days ago for an opinion concerning  the progress made by the. mining industry in 1906.    '-The statistics published weekly by the Daily News give  particulars of production in the chief  lode mining districts of the province,  the.   aggregate   tonnage   of which  is  now  nearly   1,200,000   Lous.     Add  to  this the production of the eon>l districts and Hedlev camp, Similkameen,  and a. grand total of between 1,300,000  and 1,400,000 tons for the eight expired  months of the year will be obtained.  Further, there  is the increase  in the  average prices of silver, lead and copper for 1900. as compared with 1905.  to take into account when estimating  the  value of the   year's   production.  Taking the quantity of these several  metals produced last year and calculating"  the   enhanced   value   at   this  year's average, prices it will be found  that  even  if the production for the  current year were to thow no increase  in quantity the value would be fully  $1,800,000 greater than  that'of 1905.  But'"when it is remembered that the-  quantity of ore produced this year by ���������  the7.lode, mines of  the.  province has ���������  already exceeded that of. th" whole of-  last   year it  will  be evident  that  if -  nothing occurs to interrupt production  during the unexpired portion of the  year it will be quite reasonable to look  for a considerable increase .in quantify  and a large increase in total value, the  latter   as   the   result   of   the.   higher  average prices for the year above referred to.  ���������  "While no statistics of the current  year's  production of placer gold are  as yet available, there.is good reason  to also look for an increase in this  direction, conditions having been generally favorable to  a larger recovery  of gold in the placer mining districts  during the season now drawing to a  close than in 1905.    It is probable that  both Atlin and. Cariboo will be found  to have made a larger total recovery,  while the outlying districts of Cassiai-  will add an appreciably large amount  to the year's total.   Coal and coke, too,  should exhibit a substantial advance,  notwithstanding that conditions have  not been   favorable   to  the ordinary  average output of the Vancouver Island collieries being maintained.    The  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Mines have already produced more coal this year  than during the whole of 1905, so that  if no serious interruption to production  takes place to prevent the last quarter  of 1900 from  contributing  a propor-  considerable  tonnage should be  all the Conservative delegates at a  dinner at the Laurentian Club, where  they had an opportunity of meeting  many leading Conservatives, including  Bergeron, M. P., Ames, M. P., and  White, the victor of the North Renfrew bye-election.  Messrs. Roblin, McBride and Whitney made stirring speeches and had a  splendid reception.  October 12th���������At the meeting of the  conference to-day Premier Laurier  urged the necessity of unanimity in  order to secure the legislation necessary from England. Should a single  province object to any proposed amendment to the B. N. A. Act it might  jeopardize the chances of the legislation being procured.  This 13 the reason why British-Col-  Concluded on Page Four.  tionately large outmit,  increase   in   total  the result of the year's coal mining  operations. Building materials, as  well, will show a larger total value  than in past years, for there, has been  an active demand for brick, stone,  cement, etc., and these are included  under the head of non-metallic minerals when making up the statistics of  mineral production.  "But it is not the largely increased  production of the. year that will most  impress capitalists with the progress  and prosperity of British  Columbia's  mineral industry; it is rather the convincing evidence afforded by the payment of a comparatively large sum of  money   in   dividends  that  will   most  strongly  appeal  to  them.     When  it-  shall   become   widelv   known  that a  number of British  Columbia's mines  are at last in -i position to distribute  profits periodically, capital will not be  difficult to obtain for promising mining enterprises, and since it is capital  for development that is most needed  to  bring about the utilization of the  enormous  mineral  resources   of   the  province on a much larger scale, it is  ...ertainly gratifying to at last find conditions becoming favorable, to the encouragement   of   capitalists   to    put  money into mining in the province.  While a total distribution of between  $2,000,000 and ,$3,000,000 of bona fide  earned profits this year may not be a  very large showing, it is an earnest  fact that the corner has at length been  turned and that mining and smelting  in British Columbia are now offering  considerable  inducements to capitalists to engace in these industries in  the province."

A  MEORAW,  Managing t-ditor.  but to pursue this policy of deterring to the feelings of others  to the extent suggested by the  Winnipeg Free Press which  takes Premier Roblin to task, is  to'display a streak ot* the rene-  ade.  The Free Press objects to the  Iflag regulation on the  ground  that it will not be acceptable to  tiie large .influx   of   American  settlers that are   pouring   into  the Canadian west.     Doubtless  these settlers all know that no  Canadians would be allowed to  obtain public lands in the United  States  without becoming  American    citizens    and   they  have also declared their intention to become British subjects  when they apply for their land  in this country.    If that declaration of intention on their part  was genuine, then  no  violence  to their feelings should be done  by floating the British flag over  Canadian   school-houses    and  having their children join  with  other children in singing  "The  Maple Leaf Forever;" and conversely, if, as   the   Free   Press  says, their feelings might be injured by it, then their declaration was all a sham, and people  who so lightly regard a solemn  declaration are not   going   to  make good citizens.    It is  surprising that a  paper   like   the  Free Press should urge such a  plea.    Premier Roblin has done  MR. LAURIER DISTRUSTED  I  Fears Are  Entertained That a  Trap Is  Being Laid To Steal a March  ,,.   on the Provinces. ,  The resolute war waged on monopolies by the Whitney Government and  the intimations by holders of monopolistic franchises that the Federal government would see them through, has  made, public  men  about the Ontario  capital suspicious of the. good offices  of Mr. Laurier towards the provincial  premiers.  A writer on the subject says :  "The fact that an inspired announcement has been made to the effect that  the government will increase the provincial subsidies on condition that the  provinces surrender some of their legislative   and  'administrative    rights,  lends weight to the  ,,flim-flani"-pre-  dietion.   The federal authorities are  said to he especially eager to get from  the provinces a large slice of the local  jurisdiction over railways.   This the  Dominion is ready to buy with money  -labelled "subsidy."

The action of Premier Roblin,  of Manitoba,  in  requiring  the  British flag to be hoisted on the  schoolhouses in  that province,  is an evidence that Canadians  are at last awakening to the duty which rests upon them of endeavoring to foster a stronger  national spirit in this country.  Love of country and its institutions has in all ages been an attribute peculiar to all civilized  peoples, and has been  equally  strong whether the government  be  republican  or monarchical.  In  fact on  this  continent our  neighbors to the south are very  marked  in  the  attention  that  they pay to the matter of teaching their children a love for the  flag. Few Canadians would care-  to .see the matter, on this side of  the line carried to the  extreme  that it is in  the  United States  and would much prefer that the  Canadian  brand  of patriotism  be quiet, decorous and  sincere,  rather  than  ostentatious  or  noisy.    First of all, the children  should   be  taught a  reverence  for the Hag, by using the  occasion of all national holidays  to  point out  to  them  the  significance of  these  events,  and to  impress them with all that  the  old   Union Jack  stands for,  in  the amelioration of the  condition of mankind within the vast  domain of the British  Empire  and in the world at large. They  should be taught that their patriotism will be   none   the   less  genuine by having it observe a  proper respect for the feelings  of others, and that to flaunt it  within the domain of any other  country than their own, will be  to cheapen it and also cheapen  themselves.    Even unnecessary  ostentation in our own country  in the   presence of those   who  owe  allegiance to   other   flags  and who may be sojourning a-  iiiong U:-\ is   to  be   deprecated ;  lumbia should follow his example by requiring that the flag be  displayed on all public buildings,  including school-houses, in this  province on every national holiday, and the teachers be required to improve the occasion  by ������������������imparting' the '-instruction'  that should go therewith.  Then there is another feature  that conies up in this connection and that is the thoughtless  manner in which the flag is  sometimes displayed, which is  even worse than neglecting to  display it at all. There is.a proper way to use the flag, and also  an improper. In the service  the flag is always hoisted at re-  eille and lowered at sundown.  To put up the flag on a national  holiday and leave it there day  and night, in rain and shine, for  weeks to follow, is to prostitute  it to commercial uses and to  lessen the respect that belongs  to it. In most cases of this kind  there is no intention to show  disrespect, and the lapse is due  to thoughtlessness rather than  to any other cause.  expect. If it conies to a showdown,  they represent four votes. These font-  votes may be used for the purpose of  selling out the important rights of the  older provinces, just as the rights of'  Alberta and Saskatchewan were sold  for cash at the outset.

A bridge tournament is soon to take  iplace to decide who are the champions  in town.  Geo. McCoskery came in ��������� on Tuesday's stage and went on to Princeton  next morning.  Hans Richter was in town yesterday  on his way back from the coast "bearing his blushing.honors full upon him.'  It is said that Fred Revely lost some  of his horses c, on the way over the  Hox>c trail. No authentic details are  yet to hand.  Miss Machin, housekeeper at the hotel Similkameen, has been indisposed  for the past few days.   An attack  of  ,   quinsy is the cause.  Geo. Sproule, blacksmith, returned  from Keremeos on Saturday where, he  was in charge of P. Booniley's shop  during the hitter's illness.  Mr. H. F. Evans spent several days  looking over the country on Sixteen  Mile and Fifteen Mile, -making the  Jumbo his centre of operations.  The Anaconda News missed a couple  of issues through illness of the editor  and staff. Editor Keller has now fully recovered and is again on duty.  Mr A. E. Baldwin of the Gt. Northern Engineering staff was here last  week on his way to Keremeos to meet  Chief Engineers Hogeland and Kennedy.  Mr. Clark returned from the Coast  on Thursday night last after taking in  the Westminster Fair and looking  after his own personal interests in the  terminal city.  -.-: The rains of the past few days ,while  sufficient to dp away with the dust  and make travel more pleasant, have  not been sufficient in volume to im  prove the water in the streams to any  appreciable degree.  Carl Hairsine l'eturned from Fair-  view last week where he ^yent some  six or seven weeks ago to take charge  of the store of Shatfords Limited during the illness of A. D. Hardie, wrho  had an attack of typhoid.  Major Anderson, Gt. Northern right  of way man, was in town on Sunday  on his way up the river and returned  on Monday evening. This is his first  trip up the river since last May. He  reports the track-laver making headway between Molson and Oroville.  Constable Max Ewart, of Keremeos,  was in town yesterday on his way  back from the coast. He and Hans  Richter came back together over the  Hope Trail and had rather an uncomfortable ride, as it was snowing and  raining, with about six inches of snow  on the Hope Mountain.  Notwithstanding the quiet season,  Jack Gillan has done a tidy and ever  increasing trade in aerated beverages.  His siphon sodas are to be found in almost every bar in the district and are  pronounced a high-class article Avher-  ever. used. In localities where the  prevalence of fever created distrust of  the water, his iron brew, and other  aerated drinks were much in demand.  The Gazette has pleasure in acknowledging the handsome gift of a box of  Labor Day Celebration Committee Show  Balance  of  $53-28.  Mr. L. G. MacHaffie, Sec'y Treas. of  the Labor Day Celebration committee  has compiled a full statement of the  finances of the recent celebration, and  has things in apple pie order to turn  over to next year's committee. This  statement has been duly audited by  Mr Dennison, and shows a balance of  $53.28 on hand.   '  The receipts amounted to $980.S3  and were made, up of a balance of $7.83  over from Last year's sports; subscriptions from the town of $788.50, and  entrance, fees collected $101.50. The  expenditure amounted to $907.55, of  which the prize money paid out  was $717.50 and sundry accounts  $190.05. This left a balance on hand  of $53.28.  What may be done next year it is  a little too early to speculate on, but  the scale will depend wholly on the  conditions that may prevail at the time  and will be the all determining factor.  By that time a regular train service  connecting us with Boundary points  will be in operation, which would' enable the committee to arrange for a  monster railway excursion from all  points east and west. Whatever may  be done, if anything be undertaken an  early start should be made and the  committee should be at work not later  than the 20th of June.  H OTEL  METROPOLE  VANCOUVER, B. C.

There has been some talk about the  fine luscious grapes from the vineyard  work trains carrying passengers from  of Mr F. Richter, of Keremeos. About  ton days ago the Gazette, had the privilege of inspecting the vines with their  magnificent load of luscious grapes,  and would consider the sight better-  worth five dollars than any fruit exhibit seen at an exhibition for the  usual price of admission.  T. D. Pickard has been appointed  road supervisor for the Similkameen  electoral district in room of W. C.  Bate who resigned several weeks ago.  As all the reports of the season's operations have to be compiled for the  Department of Lauds it Works, he  will have several weeks of clerical  work ahead of him, as well as supervision of the work still under way that  has to be completed before winter sets  in.  The Canada Inter-Ocean is a new  monthly magazine recently stai It-d in  Winnipeg by C. H. Mcintosh, ex-  governor of the Northwest, 'flie first  number is to hand, and it gives evidence of proving to be; a. publication  that is needed in Canada, while, its  situation at Winnipeg makes the name  Inter-Ocean particularly fitting. The  magazine is thoroughly national in  sentiment and miikes a specialty of  .biography of parliamentarians who  played a. prominent part-in tin- making of i 'anada, and another prominent  fcatu- e is 1 he attention paid to Canada's  resources.  (Molson Independent)  If present calculations are carried  out, Molson will have a regular freight  and passenger train service by Nov. 1.  At the present rate of progress, the  ballasting crew will reach Molson by  October 25. It is stated-by those in.a  position to know, that the contractors  will then turn the road over to the  operating department and a service  will be at once inaugurated. The telegraph line will reach here to-day or  to-morrow and the depot and water-  tank will soon be in course of construction.  During the past week the attention  of the steel-laying crew has been occupied in making tracks on the Molson  station grounds, including the main  line, four sidings and the Y. The  west leg of the latter had to be laid by  hand, it being impossible to get the  machine adjusted to work on that particular piece of road. At the time of  going to press the track is laid nearly  to Sidley's place and good progress is  being made, the crew having been  substantially reinforced early in the  week. Just what' progress will be  made after the track machine starts  down the hill, it is hard to say. Railroad makers claim that down-hill  work is apt to be slower and more  conducive of accidents, than up-hill  work, and they are loth to give any  estimates on the length of time it will  take them to make the 28O0-f t. descent  to Oroville. There appears to be  plenty of material at hand, and it is  not likely that the work will be held  up on account of any shortage in that  line. A daily train is being run from  the materials yard at Midway, to Molson, supplying the track machine with  ties and rails.

Our informant said that  while a great many passengers would  doubtless' be "dead-headed" through  between now and the time a regular-  service is inaugurated, he did not believe the contractors would make a  regular business of carrying passengers. He stated, however, that there  is no reason why the work trains cannot bring up a car of freight occasionally."  Later news than the above is to the  effect that on Friday last, 19th inst.,  the. track-layer had reached a point  seven miles west of Molson, and that  they expected to be in Oroville on  November 15th.  s  a  K  K  I  k  K  a  K  K  *  .*���������  K  K  K  x  K  K  K  K  *  K  K  K  K  *  *  if  Great Northern  Hotel  A new house containing more bed  room accommodation than any  other hotel in town.

CASE AT OTTAWA.  rontinned from KirNtFnjro.  uinbia has been so much in  evidence  this-week. . The  Liberal members of  the  conference made; a   lint offer   of  ' $750,000  in' full liquidation of British  Columbia's ' additional   claims,   to  be  paid at the rate of $75,000 per ami inn  for- ten years.    This Premier McBride  would not 'consider.  His position, is that the conference  ,   must go on record as to  British Columbia's claims for additional'rocOKni-  tion    before   discussing   terms.    'His  proposition for a commission was officii! Uy declined to-rday by Sir Wilfrid.  The conference also refused to endorse  it, whereupon Premier McBride entered a'formal protest.  As an alternative  and without prejudice-he handed British Columbia's terms to the chairman.,  The arrangement is on a, sliding scale  from   $1.   per head: downward  to   25  cents per head on the population   increase, until a- population of.'2,500,000  has been reached, when the allowance  i.s to' remain -permanent at the latter  figure.    This  i.s  to   be 'the allowance  ��������� over and above-" the 'general'basis of  1002. Premier McBride mav compromise- with' respect to this'additional  allowance, but will not yield his main-  point���������that British Columbia is entitled to a substantial additional allowance. He holds that the ca.se for British Columbia, has been developed from  a logical baiss. and while, he is willing  to go as far as possible in meeting the  exigencies of a difficult and delicate  situation, he  cannot- depart from the  , general-principles he has laid down.  Premier McBride desires peace, but  it must be peace with honor. In his.  contention he has been strongly'supported throughout by Premier Roblin.  Judging from all one.can hear, a majority of the Liberal members, of the"  ���������'conference are absolutely under control of the ...Doininion government,  whose '.members -are .daily in > close  confab with theni.  It is said the Quebec delegates are.  inclined to yield to British Columbia's  claim in order .to secure ,-i"'unanimous  ��������� agreement and a speedy settlement of  the question at issue and to obviate,  as is possible, a disruption of the conference without anything being accomplished. In the attitude of the  Quebec  men   lies   Briiish.Columbia's  Make  strongest hope of success.  A determined effort is being made to  induce Premier McBride to give way  and then discredit him inthe province.  The conference may conclude its labors  to-morrow, but this is uncertain.  October 18th���������The Provincial conference, which lias been sitting all the  week, concluded its business this evening. All the Provincial premiers, with  the exception of Hon. Mr. McBride,  appear to be well satisfied..-.-.-  - Premier McBride being unable to  get what he considered was right for  British Columbia, withdrew from the  conference this morning and did not  attend this afternoon's session. As  British Columbia's demands were  those which were delaying the proceedings for the past couple of days  it did not take a,-long time to finish  the work in hand. An additional vote  of $100,000 for ten years was given.  Mr. McBride rejected this before leaving the conference.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, upon receiving  the resolutions, said that he could not  promise the subsidies embodied in the  1902 editforence, which were practically  those presented, but would promise  the subsidies of the 1887 conference,  which were about the same as those of  1.002. with a. difference that there is  nothing given for criminal justice.  In addition, the Premier said that  there would be an amendment to the  Briiish North America Act.  A summary of the official report of  the conference follows :  Mr. Mcl-$ri<le\s resolution for refer-  once to arbitration was voted down by  eight to one. Mr. McBride made the  following declaration "I protest that  the question of British Columbia's  claim upon tin; Dominion Government  for reference should not he considered  by the conference, hut that it is a  question between the Government of  British Columbia and the Federal  Government."  It wa.s moved by Mr. Whitney, seconded by Mr. Murray, that in view of  the large area and geographical position of British Columbia, it i.s the  opinion of the conference that the said  Province should receive a reasonable  additional allowance for the purpose  of civil government, in excess of the  provinces made in the Quebec resolutions of 1902, and that such additional  allowance should be to the extent of  $100,000 anually for ten years.  Messrs. Scott and Rutherford moved,  in view of this resolution, that Alberta  and Saskatchewan should get additional treatment.  Mr. McBride withdrew at this stage  of the proceedings.
