The Conservative Candidate's Address.  w t  to tlie Electors of Revelstoke Riding:  Gentlemen',���������Having been nominated as the Liberal-Conservative can J  didate" in this riding, I beg,lo put  before you briefly my stand on the  most important questions now before  the electorate.  I , am in full sympathy with - tbe  Eight-iiour law for underground miners. Tlie law has come to stay and  'will not be interfered with except at  the united request of all parties chiefly  interested in. it.  It is my opinion that the time^has  ��������� come for a firm stand to be made in  this Province against the further  immigration of Oriental' cheap labor  any]*-.;i iiy_niprigiire^-\yhich the Provin  ciai Legislature can pass to check this  "rowing evil will receive mv support  and T shall be in favor of tlie strongest  pressure being placed on the Dominion,  and Imperial authorities" to assist, by  the most strongest measures, this  Province in what is now threatening  to become a. veritable struggle for  existence for white workiugmen.  1 am a firm believer iii the principle  of government ownership of railways.  The provision of some effective system for the settlement . of disputes  between' ���������' capital- .-.and,, labor is much  needed and uny-measure in this direction as well as' any other to improve  the conditions' of the laboring classes  will find me iu its favor. , -= '  ��������� This riding requires .the establishment of a registration office at Kevel-  stoke to facilitate the conduct of  business iu tbc district, and the construction of a gaol is anollier'require-  ment which would receive my'attention.        -   . ' '  It is my belief that the pooulation  of Kootenay ' has reached a point at  which the establishment of a high  school at such a central point as Revelstoke has become necessary.  The development of the , Big Bend  mineral section is.*, a point- which I  would'do my utmost to further. The  completion ot the wagon road, to the  head of the canyon and the subsidizing  a line of steamers on the upper rivet-  would form, in my opinion, legitimate  methods for the legislature to adopt- in  order to attain this desirable object,  I would work for the construction  of roads, trails and bridges, on a  liberal scale throughout the riding,  feeling sure that the money'expended  in the development of the. magnificent  resources of the Trout Lake, Lardeau,  Fish River, Illecillewaet and Big Bend  sections will eventually prove a pay-  in" investment for the Provinoe in the  lar'e increase of revenue which will  accrue with the growth of mining  activity within the district.  If elected I pledge myself to u.-e my  utmost endeavors to cany out lli*  above mentioned line of policy in it-*  entirely.' On this ground'1 beg to  solicit.your votes on the ninth of June.
