But under the new-  order of thijigs as adopted by this  convention, you should'vote for White  simply because lie-is a tory and against  Kellie simply because he is a grit. , It  doesn't matter to tins new order' of  things vvhether'oue man is old irr tire  service of the district, acquainted with  ils people and industry and familiar  withevery bit of its geography and  history, and the other man but lately  arrived from Another place.

And who   are   the local  i ' *"  leaders of this new law. If the Mail  mistakes not they vv; i 11 be found to be  almost? identical with,the local _ leaders  of the Tuuier government cause in the  last election. And even us in local  aflairs so in provincial; there is a  suspicion that this convention' lent  itself to Turnerism, 'and lo the em  harassment of the''new "reform goveni-  * merit which recognizes no party lines.  But a little while iigo the public heard  .Mr. Turner ,and his organ decrying  party lines, now their action is one 'of  piit ticipalion and approbation at their  introduction; and the resolution cited  in parr! above which declares its rhject  to be the setting up, of a < liberal-conservative government as distinguished  from / a govei nnruit comprised "of  liberal conservatives arrd pailly iff  liberals " is balm to the Turner soul ,as,  it aims directly at the piesent fusion  and refoi in government.  Biilish Columbia has malteis of   its  own to settle without this intrusion of  foreign issue-;      It   needs   a   businesslike   and'progressive    government   to  str.iigliteii'out its   financial   aflaits, to  adjust the repiesentution,   and lo do a  lot of  things inure vital  to   our   interest   as   a   province    than    squabbling'  over whether the  legislature shall give  a conservative   or   liberal   coloring   to  its views.   .Audit    that  is   a   coi rect  view for the province,   it is even uio.'e  so for Kootenay.      As I>. C. has but a I  small voice and is not   in receipt of its I  just   dues   .-a,   Ofiiiwa,   even   .so' has j  Kootenay   a   struggle   for  recognition ;  from    Victoria.
