0:i Wednesday evening last" Mr.
Charles Wilson, Q. CI., lender of l.he
Conservative party in this Province,
^addressed Lhc electors of Revelstoke in
the Opeta House, on- the issues of the
prison I. campaign, and setfforLh his
reasons why the electorate should re-
t.iu'ii the Consei vafis-e party1 to posver.
.What effect hit. remarks had on his
audience will not be known untilthe.
9Lh da j' of June next.  ���
The local Liberal-Consc,rvaLive association  made   great   preparations for
"the occassion and had  the  City  band
parading  the    tosvn    previous" to the
"meeting, for the purpose, presumably, (
of gathering the people together.   The
meeting svas somewhat late   in, being
called to otder,  owing  to a  prolonged
session  of the Assize  Court' which is
being held here this sveek, and 'it svas
fully  half   past   eight   svhen Mr. McLaughlin, president of ihe Liboral-Con-
seiwative Association,  took the chair.
The audience svas fahly large; although
it could not be called as representative
as'the gathering, svhieh assembled Lo
hear, the Hon. Joseph" Mat-Lih 'expound
his views tsvo weeks ago.',
The first speakei of'the evening^'introduced by the chairman svas."Mr.
Thomas    Taylor,    the     Conservative
i ' *
nominee ,1'or this,- constituency. Mr.
Taylor,lnid not'very "much to say and
,it is hoped that befoi e long the electors
ot this city svill have another opportunity of hearing Mr. Taylor express his
viesv-- at more length on the questions
which are now agitating the minds of
the people.     ��� << > , ���        ' ,
Mr. Charles,-Wi!son svas  then   inLro;
"ducecl by the ch'airman-and he proceed--
ed in a careful and- methodical  way'to
explain tlie position of the  Conservative  party  in British  Columbia,    lie
stated that they svere a party svithout
funds, a party   svith  little or no press
support  and  a   party   which   had. no
affinity svith Iheprevions governments
of Ihe Province.    Ir. this connection he
paid our estemed contemporary a high
complement,,   slating   that   his   party
had'received a fairer measure of,support from the local Conservative organ
here in Revelstoke than probably'from
any other paper in the Province, at the
same time remarking that it svas not u
subsidized  support  svhicli   svas  being
Mi.   Wilson  then  devoted consider-
'abb* time to a criticism of the, Lieutenant'Coventor's action in calling upon
1 Ton., Joseph Martin Lo.form a government,'svhieh action.'he contended,'svas
a, violation  of   constitutional " usages,
and it svould lie tho duty of the  people,
to say whether I lu-y approved of such a
course. , It had been urged,  as the, on-
position to the present administration
svas  so great, that in , order   to completely   overwhelm , it   the    different
opposing fact ion1"-  should  unite ,to at-'
lain 'this end  but  Mr. Wilson svas of
the   opinion    that   lho    Conservative
party alf'iio sveie quite capable of dealing svilh this matter and he svas satisfied   that   then'    sv'-re    hundreds   of
Liberals svho would vole   for Ihe  Con-
horvtitis'es in preference to' any  candidate  svhieh   lhc  present   government
might bring forward, in order to show
their disapproval of the course,   svhicli
had bivu   i-ui'.'.ui'd   by lh" 1/ieiilcnatil-
' (invci nor.
The speaker then dealt ssiLli Ihe f-i.x-
L.'i'U act'i panned by (he fii-'iiiliit government svhieh   had   hi-jon  disallosvcd   bv
always be ineffactive as looking at it
from the standpoint of an alien labor
question svas one svhieh could only be
dealt svith by the federal authorities,
audjt svas to our Dominion ivpruota-
tii'es sve had to appeal if sve wanted
relief in this svav.    Lie  further  staled
uliiu g?J
By JiigiilantleFS.',
that the only relief the people ever got
in this matter was from the Conservative government,   svhieh  kind of government svas the  best conservator1 of,
the rights and privileges of labor.   Lit.
Wilson theie proceeded to  (ell his au-
dience-hos'v   he. if  given   the   posver,
svould,deal svith it not as ;i question of
alien    labor    but    as   a   question   of
property    and      civil   _ rights. '    For
instance svhen  any company ask  the
legislature   for   special   privileges   in-
.slead of j inserting, a claim  in the bill
stating that no  Chinese,qor Jjipane.se
be employed, etc.,  an/order-in-council
should be passed making-it lawful for
the Lieutenant-Governor  to grant certain privileges  to   the "said company
upon certain  conditions.    In  this way
a remedy; could  be obtained,  legally;
lawfully iind justly and   without'cot'i-
llicting svith the Tty?ilei\il  government.
Mr.'  Wilson   next took up tiie Conservative platform and announced that
so far as he svas concerned; at least, he
intended  to  give  tha   principles   laid
dosvn in 'that platform a  loyal  adherence,     This' platform,   he   said  with
probably, one  exception,   exhausts the'
subject's   svith   which   the  people are
at present corifionted, that one exception svas redistribution.     This  matter
,it had been expected,,-svould' be   remedied   by   the   late   government.      Up-
stated that  the present premier pro.
posed to give representation partly by
population  and  partly  by land.   The
only fair svay to reptesenb the people
is according  to  population,  except in
constituencies   .which   tire   constantly
growing,   take   this- constituency   for
example',  ."when "the"   representation
should  be  increased^ over   tli'ose  constituencies, svhieh   in   the   past  have
sliosvn no increase.
Speaking ot wagon road and trail
building, Mr. Wilson referred to the
Big Bend road and svas of the opinion
that svhen money was appropriated for
such purposes roads and trails should
be made that would be passable after
their ��� construction. If hesvete the
Lieutenant-Governor's advisor he
svoiild'-sce that at least somo of our requirements svere attended to. Nearlv
every scheme in the government plat-
fotm is "Borrow, ' borrow, borrow,"
which in other wotds simply means,
"Pay, pay, pay."
��� In dealing 'svith "the eight-hour law
Mr. Wilson explained that the Conservatives svere in sympathy svith and
endorsed the principles of the same,
lie slated that this question had nor
received ihe consideration which it
ss-as entitled to and the result ,svas disaster. Mr, Cotton says that llie eight-
hour law is purely a question of svages,
while Mr. Martin claims that the question has been piactically settled but
supposing it had not been, he svas prepared to submit, it lu the voice of Unpeople. ' ���

then briefly, discussed the platform ol
the government, claiming that a great
deal of the good therein svas by no
means origmai and that a considerable
portion of it was taken from the Liberal-Conservative platform. Jn speaking of the anti-Chinese legislation
svhieh had been passed by the Seinlin
government , and disallosvcd by the
Dominon authorities and which the
present government proposed Lo te-
enact, Mr. Wilson said he sviif opposed to any such course because, he
claimed  that   :-��ucll   Is-gHIutiou   svoiild
incut in the coining election svas tlie
best means of having good government for many years to come.
The chairman then introduced Mi.
Livingstone of Vancouver, svho proceeded in a would-be humorous and
rather sarcastic manner to tell (he
people hosv bad a man the I Ion..Joseph
Martin svas "and a'll that sort of
thing." Fie took up a good deal of
valuable time in this svearisoine, though
to all appearances, to him at least, all
absorbing topic, and his remarks svere
not conducive* to the svelfare of the
party its represented by Mr. Charles
Wilson, but rather had a tendency to
have the opposite effect.
The meeting broke up svith a vote of

A young woman came very quietly
from the side doorof the handsome house
nnd stepped softly dosvn the stone walk
and through the gutcsvay. Itc was a
rlottdy evening,.and her movements svere
hidden by the shadows. She svalkod to
the nearest street corner and svas immediately joined by a young man svhose
urm she took ns they passed along. ,
"Did  I keep you svaiting long,  Fred?"
-.lie Asked.    "It Hcenit'il -i-uiti* impossible,
to get a svay svithout being observed."
���"Xo." saitl the yo'tng ni.-m: "the svaiting was" nothing. Mill svhy is it ncces-
fitry IhiU you should resort Co all this'*���
Jn�� svas going to say "nonsense," ��� but
wisely chocked himself���"this mystery."
/���It is necessary.. 1 tell yuu, Fred. 1
can't receive yon at luiinc, ami then; is
no other svay. I have told you niany
limes that my father s\-oiild never coii-
M'nt to give you my hand. Il might be
different if mother svere alive, but nosv it
is more than likely that father svould forbid you.the lion-fe."
"That isn't pic-*-iblp." ��aid the young
num. *'I iii'i the sou of his oldest friend.
Ho has cser professed a leg.nd tor me.
Surely thorn is'tiothiui* ill my conduct
th.u could iirejudice him. I am poor, but
tny   prospects  are  excellent,  aiid" ���
"J tell you. Fred, he inieiids me for
higher game. Xo striiggl'��ig architect is
good enough for liis daughter. But Iia
shall not icai' us apart."
���'Of course not." said Fred hastily.
"But. really. Flsie. I don't .like this sort
of thing.     It seems''���
She ilrosv her hand from his urm.  (|
"Don't like itV" she echoed.
"Of course I like it." lie tpiickly asserted.  "At least 1 like you, which Is a greut
deal mdVc to the point."
,The girl look his mud nu.-iin.
r ,
"Let me tell you. *-rcu, near.' she softly said, "that if it svtisu't for this very
sort of thing, this secrecy, tho opposition
of my father, the romance of it all,
very likely I shouldn't love you half as
much. The more papa slights you the
more determined I am to be yours. Funny, isn't itV"  '
���'Delightfully funny," said the young
man, and then they ssvitched away fi,om
the subject aud, pursued their secret half
hour stroll. ,
'When they "'returned to ;,he handsome
home, the young s\ ennui, after a tender
though brief patting svilh the young man,
re-entered the iide door svith a most elaborate effort to be both cautious and noiseless^ .-
The young man walked assay softly
chuckling. (
- "This floes seem like such a sentimental
farce," he murmured, "and yet I must
play my part through to the drop of the
curtain. I can't imperil my happiness
.nosv after svaiting for it since boyhood.
I think she loved me all the time', hut it
has taken :i very ingenious scheme to
bring her to a realizing sense of my attractions and general worlliincss. Dear
little bundle of romance.' Well, I mustn't,
forget to,, lake precious good care that
some romance is introduced and retained
in our married life," -'   ���
The   secret   meetings   were   continued,
and Elsie assured her lover that the opposition of hcr'father to him svas becoming more and more marked.
���"Why. Fred," she cried one evening,
"papa said he believed you svere a mercenary youth and that you had a deceit-c
ful face. Why, I felt like risiug fight up
and defending,.vou before all the world
and then telling papa that though he
thrcsv me into prison 1 svould never,
never, never wed any one but ydij!< But I'
didn't."        -       /     ,    '   ��'\    -
"That svas wise," said 'Fred.   "It isn't
quite time for that." ��� ' ,.
There ss;as,a moment's silence.    ���
"I toll you' what it is, Fred," said the f
young girl, svilh a little catching in her'
throat, "the only thing,focus-to do is to'
elope"." ,
I',red svas not startled.  ���>
' "It's  the   very   thing  1' was  about  to
suggest,"'he quickly said.   -"What night
, do you prefer?"       .
-"You dear boy!" cried Elsie, affectionately  patting his' arm.  - "There "is somo
romance in you after'all."-
"Thank you,"' said Fred stolidly.
"What night?" -     *'    ���    ,
"I want to'wear my lovely new traveling suit," said Elsie, "and it svill not he
finished until Thursday. o Then I must
go dosvn to tho Friday bargain sales and
eat "ii few tilings that 1 need."
"Xot a rope-ladder?" laughed Fred.
"No." said Elsie, svith an echoing gurgle. "Fancy a bargain sale svith an'advertisement something like ,this: 'A' full
and choice lino of rope ladders, for elopement uses. Gome early, before the stock
is picked over. Only one rope ladder
svill be sold to,, each customer.' EIosv's
that?" '
"Very amusing." said the young- man,
"But you haven't .decided on the event-
nil day." s t   i
"Well, suppose sve say a week, from
'"That   suits   me,"   replied   the   young
man.   "What aro your plans V-
"I' have them laid out," -replied the
young girl eagerly. "My new street suit
svill bo finished, Wednesday. It's the
loveliest thing you , ever laid eyes ,ou.
Mine? Siuinnerson never gave me such a
lit before."      '
"I'm afraid we'll soon have to give up
lime. Summersou," said the young man
"Do you really think so, dear?''
"Yes. love.'   Marrying a poor but hon-
�����*��� vo'uuk architect is a pretty sure cure
'or the fits you mention. Of course sve
can't count for certain on your father's
forgiveness."    ��� ._!���������..
"Oh, yes sve can! He'll welcome us
.back svilh open arms."
"I'm pretty sure 'sve wonlt deserve it.,
But go on."
"Well,'I'll put ou my nesv dress and go
" over to Marne Ilolliday's in the afternoon, l'lbmanage to smuggle over' a Iqjt
.of things in a paper parcel, and you must
come up svith a uess- traveling bag, 'and
we'll puck thorn* all in that. Then you
can order the carriage to call for us at 7
o'clock, and we'll take the train over to
Gruigsville and bo married there."
'.'And you prefer'this svay to being married comfortably-at home?"-   .
"Don't talk nonsense, dear. You know
I couldn't be married comfortably at
home, ;tt least not'tn you���unless you dirf-
guided yourself and married me under
nn assumed name. Wouldn't that be romantic?"
"One romance at it time, dear."
The days passed rapidly, especially th��
ever to be remembered Thursday.
Tt svas not  a pleasant day.    The sky
svas o'crc.'ist  and   bite  in   the  afternoon
