Mr' Borden  might very,' well' apply this new  principle in' tory. policy at'home  and urge the McBride government,  which'represents the Conservative  party in this province, to halt in  its'- careeiS of, political .corruption  and partisan jobbery, so damnatory to that administration. **.,  The war shows, one .defect in'the  Japanese military training.

PUBL1CM1SREPR1CSKNTATION  It is'a matter  for  regret that so  many public  men of   Canada'''are  de'*boralely    dishonest    in   their  public   utterances:* " 'The , people  have a right   to 'know the truth  and   to   expect' something'' better  fiom public . men   than "distorted  statements.    George EuJia's Foster,  he who was once a shining light in  the Toiy ranks, but whose services  have lately'been rejected by  every  constituency whose favor   he- has  sought, .had  the  bad taste at the  manufacturers banquet  to charge  Sir   Wilfred   Laurier -with insincerity   in-   adopting'    preferential  trade,with the mother country, and  'he  was  rightly,, sat-upon by  Sir  Howard   'Vincent,     an   'eminent  Englishmen,    who    was   present.  Sir   Howard; said "Sir Wilfred had  given deeds .'and  not* offers", and  pointed out that under "the Liberal  preferential tariff   devised-;by the  Laurier government imports from  Britain to  Canada  hTid  increased  by  from'29  to  58 millions, while  exports from   Canada   to* Britain  had   increased    from -62 "to -125  millions.-   Yet  almost every Tory  sp'eaker  deliberately  reiterates on  thc platform'the falsehood that Sir  Wilfred and the Liberal partly "are  not in   sympathy   with   the very  policy they   introduced  and  have  successfully carried out.  from the -*oil, and to the development of.the natural,resource-, Mich  at- timber nnd miner.il we.illh.*  While the,0. 1\ It. make a,1.1--" un  tho ro.id they do not evident!.-  take into account the fact thi-  brancli is- an important, feeder ,tti  their, main line,.from which it.gets-  no credit. The train ciowh have to  bekepton in winter and paid full  time, and the extra expense of run-  nin������a daily would only be that of  wear and. tear,- which- cannot  amount to so very much.  , With the number of people coming into the, valley it, must'have  thisAlaily train Wvice, and if thc  only wnv to get it is by'the provincial government 'contiibuting1 a  little . more, ^and the dominion  government assisting through the  mail service,' the" C.

With the large  and increasing, passenger t,ra.(lic  through'the valley .both governments will be 'fully justified in  contributing the small assistance  necessary to secure- a dtiily, train  service. Thc grants would onlv be  required for a year or two at most,  as the rapid development of tralllc  would soon overcome the extra expense involved.  -, We ask Mr. GiiU'her.'M. P.', and  'Mr. Ross, the Liberal candidate for  ��������� Yale:Cariboo, to take up'th's matter with the Dominion government,  and back up tlie action of .the Railway Commissioners. ���������*, Here'also is  a good opportunity for Price Ellison; 'M.

At  a   Cons-ei-  vative   meeting   at   Toronto    la  week the party leaders howled  high   proactive   lai'ffs   with coi -  sequent large increases in taxatiu.  through the customs,  and   at  lhe  same   time   they    denounced   the  Liberals for having  increased lhe  taxation���������a statement entirely contrary to   fact.      Reason   cuts   no  figure with a party   that   th'nks it  owns   the   earth   and   sea and all  that in them is, and that  no party-  has the right to  control   the  reins  of government but the Tory party.  A PROUD RECORD.  -  The progress of Canada, socially  and  commercially,   under   liberal  rule, is  something  not   only   the  liberal party, but the  nation  as a  whole,   conservative   r.ncl   liberal,  has reason to-be proud of.    During  the  liberal .regime   Canadian  exports have risen from $110,000,000  in  1896 to" .1214,000,000 in   1903.  that is they hav.e increased nearly  as much during the seven years of  liberal rule as in all the long   pre-  ceeding*   period.       Imports   have  more than  doubled -Jn- the same  seven years.   The exodus  of  emigration,  which   had   taken  across  the boundary 1,200,000 native-born  Canadians, has  been .converted into a tide of* immigration  into  the  country,   scores   of   thousands   oi  these Canadians  or  their  descendants   returning   to   their  mother  land.    Gieal'*--tof all,  the evils of  race and religious prejudice, wb'ch,  under tory rule, threatened to curse  th's fair land, even to result  in civil war. Have been overcome by the  splendid tact and f-lalf-siniinsh'p of  Sir   WiHred   Laurier,  the   Liberal  leader, ably seconded   by b'*- loyal  supporters.ancl English ancl French,  Prolc-tanl  and   Calho,;c,   I've   together in   harmony,  ������ave  for  the  discreditable appeals   to   race   and  re^gior-s   prejudice  that the   tory  pres*. ancl speakers make from time  to time in the hope of stirring up  sectional or re,;gioii.i strife in their  desperate endeavor  to regain   thc  power    of   government���������a    power  there  is   no guarantee   that   they  would exercise, if they got it,  any  better than before, when the birthright of  the  people was despoiled  for the enrichment  of  the family  compacts of those days.    With thc  Liberal government of Canada also  originated the first  practical steps  toward   federal ion.   when   Canada  instituted     a     preferential     tariff  pol'cy towards the mother country.  ; -TORY INCONSISTENCY. _  ' ,Tlie tories are '.crying out for  higher'.pi'oteciive 'duties on binders  and harvesting.' machinery.

Yet who 'took' the tax oft"?  The same Mr. Foster, treasurer in  thc same lory government, took that  tax off,in 1894 and gave the following good-reason i/fo'r" his. action j  "This is' a 'special--concession," and  I hope, will prove,a useful,, one 'in  Manitoba and the Northwest.  There was no one feature of our  examination into the condition,of  tilings in that part of the country  which impressed itself so forcibly  on my mind as the combine which  existed for the distribution and  sale of lumber. .Every town was  parcelled out. One or two men  were selected to whom was given  the monopoly of selling in each  place. The prices were fixed ancl  if they sold a fraction of a cent under the fixed prices their privilege  was taken away and given to some  body else. That monopoly bore  heavily on the people of thai country, where lumber is so esentially  necessary in the making of'barns  and houses, and I came tb the conclusion that, if possible, help should  be given by j-juilins lumber on the  free-list, and that has been done'."  The lories ai-e now crying out  for a high protective tariff on lumber, not because t'ley believe it to  be,justified any more now than  when they repealed it, but because  they want to catch the vote of the  lumbermen. -   ���������  THE  ELECTIONS  ,'' '''' *   *. v . ���������'~-'  * Mr. Burrilliat Vernon.

R. the Railway Age says ��������� "Each  occurrence of the kind simply adds to  the amazement with which outsiders  must view an indifference which" still  fails to take-the most obvious -precautions for the preservation l of life and  property on railways  "A  simple  semaphore  attached to  , a switch-stand kby the simplest of interlocking mechanism, aud placed a  matter of 2,000  feet  from the switch,  ' is all that is necessaiy to do away  with most disasters of this sort. The  cost of tbe arrangement is so slight  and the proof that it is effective is so  tremendous that the -human mind  fails to understand why such elementary means of proved efficiency are  ignored to so great an extent upon  the lailways of this continent.  "So long as these disasters occur,  without any ameliorating circumstance, just so long will the public  believe, whether true or not, that the  safety of human life on the railways  of the American continent is wholly  subordinated to the capture of the  almighty dollar."  suBrland:  Noted English Statesman Pays  Him High Tribute.   ,"  i     'i a   *i  Speaking at the Manufacturers  Association banquet at Montreal Sir  Ilowaid Vincent is reported by that  redhotToi-y oigan, the Moutieal Star,'  as follows,: "The speaker lofened'to  she fust time he'had met him, (Sir  Wilfred) on the occision of the Im-  periarconference, and   he went  on to  soon as tits' bantla ' weie free, had  granted a "substantial preference to  England.

Tom Bell has taken his two race  horses, "Gertie Ernmett" and "Dan"  to Victoria, and his clyde stallion  "Jarvis Wod" for the exhibition there.  A good deal of annoyance is beiug  expressed here on account of the man  Eagles, who burned this town, being brought up to the Vernon  asylum. The authorities say he is  harmless and so they thought here for  two years, but be walked from En-  derby here with the oil to start the  town burning, and if he gets away  nothing could prevent him paying a  second visit, as from his remarks  when passing through he has nc t forgotten it at all.
