The call was a sudden one, still the  response was large. The meeting did -  no business, Mr. Verex'did nob appear,  and an adjournment was made at the  call of lhe local liberal association.  Theie is some diversity of opinion  among local liberals on tiie question of  parly lines with the personality cf Mr.  Martin as a great .shadow looming .  large in its relaiion thereto. The  meeting of Friday adjourned for' information, and consideration of the  .situation, and there should be a general  and interested "attendance of liberals  of this riding at the next meeting  called for toni*rht.  ���������    The Building* Season.

'  Tnn   Herald   is  now attacking Mr,  '   ���������-     -A        ,  Cotton.-   We-wonder why?  -Political Situation  In the Lapdeau.  .More than ordinary interest, has  been aroused in. Trout Lake with  regard to politics. Partly from the  fact that the extraordinary muddle  into which provincial politics has been  thrown, has caused men who ordinarily  would have paid little attention to the  matter, to arouse themselves to a  sense of their responsibility, and partly  because our townsman Thos. Taylor  has announced himself a candidate for  legislative honors. That the feeling  towaids ilr. Taylor personally as si  citizen and as a candidate is very warm  and very unanimous is beyond dispute,  but that this feeling is as unanimous  with legard to his position in entering  the field as a liberal-conservative candidate is not so_ evident. Even in  Trout Lake 'where bo resides be has  many warm friends who think, he  would have done better lo have come  out on a ���������platform which had all th������  essential features of that adopted, at  the liberal-conservative convention in  New Westminster some time ago, but  detached from tbe label, i"conserva-  tiveA 0  - Tho statement l)a> been made that  in -Mr. Taylor's case party should be  ���������sunk for Ilie purpose of getting iu a  man of the di-trict. But- in the majority of cases this remark has Iven  dropped by persons who happen to he  conse-valtve in leanings jiiuI so the  force of the cimtention i.i very largely  diit.'ini-lu'd.

The executive'of the Provincial Liberal Association at Victoria  are also opposed to party lines and  there is no evidence to show that their  views are not shared by the great  ma joi ily of the liberals in the interior.  Therefore, to commit oneself to a  certain thing before it is known 'positively what the plans of campaign are*,  is to say the least injudicious. Then  lhe feeling of the neighborhood in [XlijJ;  matter, we are confident has not been  thoroughly canvassed. Tho'. steps  taken were at the instance of parties  in Revelstoke who. are scaicely iu  position to gauge Hie feeling hero. .It  was the general impression that thei;e  was no appeal from the lines laid down  by Revelstoke and so tlie delegates  were sent there with instructions lo  support 'Air. Taylor- as a liberal-conservative".��������� ��������� '   ' ��������� ������������������  Again, il would appear liy the tune  of the mooting at Ferguson, that qi ite  a number of the electors,, especially  among tho miners und prospoctot's, ate  not iu fa*, or of parly linos. - They are  not enthusiastic over a proportion  which will result in leaving Air. Cotton  out. in tho cohl. Prom their standpoint they argue���������rightly or wrongiy  ���������that it, was the Semlin-Cotton gov-  eminent which enacted the Eight Hour  Liwand they do not feel inclined to  work against the man who labored iu  their interests, this..apart from tlie  ability of the man, which they consider  the equal of any to-day striving.for  political honors. These men areavow-  e Ily in favor of a Cotton candidate at d  so, although they retain a warm feeling for Air. Taylor personally, they  may fool it/their duty to support a candidate"- were he to, present, himself,  who is in fayor of Air. Cotton as a posr  sible premier.  Going back to the question of supporting a local man', for the reason  that some pai ticular ' part will reap  benefits greater than others and that  if localities are carefully looked after  the Province as a whole will'flourish.  While largely admitting'the tiuthof  ���������"his*, it has been suggested that as a  tree is kept in pi'ifeel condition by  looking caiefully after the Hunk and  vital parts of it,.so if the Legislature  adopts u general policy which looks to  the vital interests of tbe twhole pro-,  vince the various parts of it will bone-  tit equally. In other words it is claimed that if the broad principles of the.  good of the province aie considered  apart from purely local interests each  pare of it will progress on, a moie  equitable bat-is.��������� Trout.

The executive of the Provincial Lib-  i,i ���������  -��������� eral Association recently- held a meeting to discuss the ' political situation  Joe Martin withoutinvitation attended  the meeting and requested a hearing  which, being, granted, he took for one  hour.    When ho finished a motion* was  1 u r*  passed unanimou.slv'regretting the gov-  ernoi's   action   iu, calling Mr. Martin,  deciding against holding a'couvention,  and   pronouncing , against   the . intro-  _, ductioh of party lines" This, of course,  ,  did not please Mr. Martin  and being "a  1,    man of. much  resource ', and unlimited  gall'he in conjunction   with this as'-o-  a   ciation in   Vancouver, worked  up this  convention,idea 'at'Vancouver,   believing in his  overweening   vanity that if  he got the   Liberal   clans 'rounded up  , there that  he   would   tie.  able by pei**  suasion and biowbeating lo whip them  into line and get them 'committed   to  Liberal   mathine A politics   under   influence of the fear that otherwise conservatives   would' snatch   a party, ad-  -    vantage. ���������    Joseph   Martin " has   tried  many devices to bring in cabinet ministers ofstrength but his offers  have  been " despised   and slighted  and as a  .last"    resort , he     hopes' for   stiength  through Liberal leadership on grounds  of 'conservative advantage. ' I respecl-  "fully���������subniitthat the,  Governor's.'calling in of-Mr. Martin is a direct   insult  to the electorate of British' Columbia.  ., t o  .A'politician   without <��������� n   mend or follower in a House  of 3S members with  ' whom he was   associated   for two sessions is sufficient indication of tho, dis-  ��������� trust inspired in thosTT^Tfo' had most  opportunity fo weigh his public character.   Why'have   tLu** mighly fallen,'  ���������   why the sturdy oak cast down?     Pol-  , itical jugglerv and hypocrisy,, abetted  by his���������thirs?t for power at any price or  expense, of any principle, have contributed chiefly to ��������� his downfall.'' A  man who will act in the dual, capacity  (of attorney-general of the province  and legal adviser for a client whe.n  authority and interest seemingly conflict is not, presumably, a (it man to  control the destinies of .the province.  This occurred first in   fhe ca*>e of  the.  *��������� Sandon townsite the crown grant to  which was obtained several years ago  under, peculiar conditions yet Joe  Martin but one year ago while drawing  a government, salaty of $1,000 per  annum was' retained by J. M. Harris  tho alleged owner or' (he lowns-ite and  though knowing the impeifect nature  'of the title   while acting as attorney-  general took no steps  to recover the  Sandon    townsite   fo    fhe    province.  Joseph .Maitiu    acted   in    the    dual  capacity of attorney-general and legal  adviser of Ludgate on the ��������� Dead ri tan  Island einbrogho until .Mr. Cot ion  forced his Hand by 'Aleg am* and mad-*  him rovod and drop Ludgale iike a hot  potato. Hi.' has had Ludiiatt; and Col-  ton on the brai-n ever since. Joseph  Martin can rise in' indignation and de-  , nounce the (.'. P. li. at a moments notice iu hot" or cold weather, vet he  came to this province under the auspices of that huge inonupoi\ and, no  doubt ��������� worked faithfully to imi-ii tlie  big fa! salary Vaullorue allotted to  him by having i\ keen eye to I he interest of this Canadian Pacilic octopit-.  But his inordinate Ihirt-f I'm- power i-  not his oniv weakness, [Ii-; eaqie eve  is evidently open in i,h'> main .-Ii-iikc.  His introduction t.'l I hi* chauip.-i'i y hill  duinoustraU'."'

Ul.Tci.mnil would iie-  come prevalent and iinsci'upuiou.s la w-  vers and , prospectors would hold the  cinch on all mining properly. Injunctions would tie up mining propei lies  and aniuchy and perhaps bl"udsh-ul  might be the o:i!co''.ie nf the piol'es-  fiional clairn-jumiiers avocation. We  would, perhaps, have a rc|iefi(ion of*  the Blue IJell iiiuider on Kootenay  tyike mill have dcfj-er.ile n)inn ywiu'ru  the Masicr-and Servant's Ac!.'   , It is a  direct    , ' interference        with  ���������      the  liberty     'of    '   the r    subject,       p;*u-  viding, that     no   corporate     hu'dh-al  practitioner sliall receive a sum of moie  than   $.'"01*0   per  ann.um   for , med'ieal  aitendance���������no substitutes to he allowed.     This  is  class legislation, directed  against the medical profession   liy subverting fhe powers of ��������� the Legislature.  <  i think it quite' unnecessary to point  out   that 'no  hill   lias   yet been introduced in fhe legislature restricting the  amount of fees collectible by a member  of   the legal   fraternity.     Had such a  bill     ,heen   ,  intiodnced      concurrent  'with' the'      above       amendment  it would have shown some  .consistency. For reasons as above,  and many not staled, J submit Mr]  Martin's call to Liberals of,the Pro-  vince'should only be'complied with for  the purpose of fuming hiin down and  his attempt at party line politics with  hini.' ' ' '  The  introduction  of Federal   part}"  lines into B.  C.  politics is, as I regard  it, a menace   to our province's future  well being.  t It will surely create,discord, sunder old-time  political associations    and     friendships,   and   arouse  suspicion  of .y.our neighbors  motives  when opposed to you.     Political questions will, bo' discussed Avith more heat"  and looked a.t from  biassed and partisan standpoints.   , Individual independence of opinion will  be dominated by  party necessities and  if, a man courageously  asserts his "individuality in  resisting  them, such  epithets as renegade traitor and turncoat will he hurled  at him.     Machine  politics engineered  bv professional politician.-* will  run the  country, and will push his grip until it  embraces   fdso   town   council   and all  municipal matters and school systems.  It may, perhaps, get installed into the  secret circles of our benevolent socie-.  ties and  even  enter the. doors of   our  sacred edifices.,,   This  is not a nightmare  for'I have, myself, seen it go almost, to such  lengths' when patty feeling ran high.  There  is  nothing in common in the  spheres  of   Dominion   and Provincial  governments   that, justifies to   me, at  least,   the   introduction     of    Federal  politics in British Columbia.   The first  covers     national    affairs    the   other,  practically, municipal   matters.     The  Dominion  Government regulates and  controls  the  tar iff trade and conimer--  cial policy, hankingand postal services  military  and   naval  defence, I h'e judiciary,     criminal     law,     immigration,  navigation,  patents,  and so  on, with  mat lei s of   creneral   importance.    The  Provincial  Government's jurisdiction,  on   the   other   hand, deals   but   wilh  ��������� mat tors inside the province, prion pa liv  tiiat   of   direct    taxation,   conserving  provincial  credit; sale of public lands,  education,  administration   of  justice,  liquor   license,   regulations   and   such  questions as are purely provincial. The  relation  and  limits of   Dominion and  Provincial jurisdictions  was  long ago  settled   by the.   13.
