THE LIBERAL TWINS--GALLIHER AND ROSS.  W. A. Galliher, the Liberal candidate for , Kootenay, 1ms ������������������ pioved  anJ idefatigiible worker.' A leading  Conservative remarked the other day:  '��������� I supported the Conservative party  in the provincial elections but will  cast my vote in the dominion contest  for W. A.' Galliher. ��������� I hud difliculties  with my lai d and could not get them  cleared up. I.wrotljto Galliher ,and  he had it fixed up for me in short'  notice. .

' ��������� \ '    ��������� '  Vale-Cariboo is being rapidly settled  up. It has not had its fair share''of  attention at the hands of the dominion  government.'

He  has fought for the rights and'interests  of the workers.' The splendid fight he  put up to secure for the men who  worked on the Lardeau railway.the  wages they had earned and were  entitled to, and which they were in  danger of losing, should be remembered by every working man in Kootenay.  Pie fought the biggest corporation in  Canada on the question and beat  them. He|vvas instrumental in getting  the subsidies which are enabling East  Kootenay to be opened by a railway  from Golden to Fort Steele, for the  Midvvay-Vernon railway to open up  Okanagan Valley, for the railway into  Similkameen. ' Mr. Galliher has* well  earned thanks of the people of Kootenay and a renewal of their confidence  in him as their representative, y  Duncan Ross, the Liberal Candidate  for Yale-Cariboo, .has for a long time  taken an active part in the counsels of  the Liberal party. He was organiser  for last election, and filled a difficult  position with credit to himself and the  party. He lias' alieady rendered  excellent service by his settlement of  Hedley smelter site difficulty, which  he handled in a masterly manner, and  diretion. The extensions of lhe' tele  phone system already authorised are  much appreciated, but in as territory  so poorly provided with transportation  it is necessary ^that the best (of tele-  .phonic l^and_.mailJ._facXlities_.should,  prevail. -    '" .v.       .~r.'       _  -,  A daily mail into the "���������Okanagan  winter and summer is one of the first  lequirements aiid , the' new member  for the district will have this to attend  to immediately he is elected. With  the rapid settling- up' of the land*  along tlie lake front and back into the  valleys a daily mail service , will snmi  have to be provided right through to  Penticton'.  The lowering of.the Okanagan lake  is another matter that will demand  urgent attention. Mr. Ross is full of  energy and fight, and if returned, as  we have no doubt he will be,* wc are  sure he will take these matters up  vigorously ai'd have them cleared up.  Another matter that more particu-1  larly affects his constituents, and vvill  require his attention, is the home-  steading of lands in tbe railway hell,  whichare free from milling timber,'  and yet are tied up by timber le.isos  This must be fairly and equitably adjusted/and that immediately, if the  progress of settlement- is . not to be  hindered. '  HIGH " COJMI'UMEXTS   TO   THE    LIBERAL  CAXLtJ DATES.  Referring 'to these two Liberal  candidates, J. W." Stewart, the well-  known railway contractor who has  been operating in British Columbia-  for the past twenty years makes the  following remarks :  "I feel confident  that  Liberals will  friend   W.

Tbe Canadian  silver-lead industry is now on a firm  basis, having ���������been freed" from the  domination of the Ameiican lead  trust, which until the passage of Hie  lend bounty, tyrannically regulated  the output of the Cahadian niine  owners.

Great  Britain  Involved���������Rus  sian Outrage in North Sea-  British Government Demand  Satisfaction���������Channel Fleet  Ordered to Sea.  When the Ru������sian Baltic  fleet was  passing the British   Coast  on 'its way  to the cast it fired on  a   fishing  licet  bombarding it for half an hour, killing  and  injuring   .-everal   fishermen and  ���������sinking   two   ,-te.imers.      When   the  news si>read abroad there was  intense  indignation   in    England   and  satisfaction   from   Russia   was   promptly  demanded.    The Russian government  replied expressing regret and   olYcring  to provide liberally for the families of  the killed   ancl   injured   men.     The  British   government   demanded     the  officers guilty of  the outrage  should  be brought back and punished   but as  this  involves  Admiral Rojcstnensky,  one   of   the   most   influential    men,  Russia   has   refused   to  promise this  and pleads excuse to await his  report.  Britain demanded satisfaction within twelve bonis.      The   channel  fleet  has   been   ordered   in   readiness    to  follow   the   Russian   licet,   and    the  Ksiiuimalt squadron has been informed  hiitisfaction hai  been  demanded from  Russia.  The whole Gibraltar fleet has been  placed in commission.  There is* intense indignation in  England, and the British and continental press characterise the outrage  as most cold blooded. The,Russian  fleet refused   any ^assistance   to  the  sinking ships. The officers of the I  Russian fleet are believed to have been  panic stricken or drunk.  Latest reports say the Russian ad-  miia.1 reports he was attacked by .lap  torpedo boats in North sea and fired  on them, a statement which is absurd.  The same fleet is reported to have  fired on Danish and Sweedish ships  when passing them and another ic-  poet says another British steamer has  been found in a sinking condition.as  the result of being fired on.  Such was the indignation in London  that a ship about to sail with supplies  for the Russian licet was sunk at the  docks.  There is no news of importance  from the seat of war. Russian scouts  are active and the Japanese arc entrenching in view of an attack by the  Russians.  Vice-Admiral Berscsford, of the  Gibraltar fleet, had instructions to  prevent the Russian licet passing  Gibraltar till Russia mad*-* amends.  Russia luu agreed to hold the Baltic  fleet at tbe Spanish port of Vigo for a  thorough investigation.  v '      ,. ���������  Weather  Now .tliat the season is approaching 'when   you tmust  "  . wear, heavy clothing, don'.t  forget, that we are iu it for-  i>-Heavy Wool Go'cds/' We want''your trade^and ���������must'*-  huve it.

The Conservative party', which now  asks u? to believe it if sincere in  turning right aboitt face and going  in for a policy of government  ownersbi]..  The intere?t=- oi labor   have   had  much    more  attention     from    thu  Laurier   government     than    from  any previous administration.    The  Liberals    aboli.-hed   sweating,   es-  tabli=hed     a     labor    department,  arranged settlement of disputes between    employers   and      workers,  provided fair wages on governnient  contract.-,     .stopped    Chine.-e    immigration,    repealed     the ��������� unjust  franchise and gerrymander,   raised  the wages of post office oflicialsand  government railway employes, and  attempted to pass a stringent alien  labor law.      'J'he   Laurier government deserves the loyal support   of  A CHANCE FOR MrBRrDE.  The News Advertiser,  edited   by  lion. F. C. Cotton,   is   now  crying  for government ownership   of   railways.     Mr. Cotton is a member of  the   McBride   government,   which  repre.-ents the Conservatives nf this  province.

We .venture to ������uy, however,   lhiil   government  owner-hip  und operation   of  the   rail way   in  the province is   tbe   last   principle  the   McBride    government   would  think of adding to it������   policy   with  either the intention   or .ability   to  carry it out.       Itather    they   are n  set of humbugs who are making   a  parrot-like echo of Borden   for   the  ?ake of   bumboo/.ling   the   electors  into   returning     them    to   power.  That is their sole object, no matter  what principle they have  to  sacrifice, or what absurdities  (hey may  undertake to get there.  "    Till-: TOUR 1ST TRAFFIC.

The   C.   P. II. has done  splendid work in this way but that  company's efforts should he backed  up more  stronglythan    they   are.  British   Columbia   is    the world's  playground, with  its   great, mountains, glacier?,   lakjes   and   rivers.  The beauties and   the grandeur   of  the provincc.should be extensively  advertised   i.n   Europe,  the United  States. Australia   and   among the  leisured classes of the east.     There  should be at the government buildings at    Victoria   a  tourist department as   in    New   Zealand.,      The  government should    .-ce   that   the  la'kes   and    rivers    are   kept   well  supplied with young fi.-h from   the  hatcheries, that the native'jrnnn* is  preserved, anil other game, Mich   a-*,  pheasant? a)id  quail   .���������leclimatiscd.

The linn  stand taken at the famous arbitration  by Mr. Aylesworth in defence of Canada's rights at'once endeared him to  the people of the dominion, while tho  groat ability and tact he displayed at  the negotiations commanded tlie respect of the English speaking world.

(Mr.  Aylesworth pondered "long before he  took the final stop, knowing that it  would bo an expensive one to him, as  his law ' practice is very large ancl  profitable, and will 'be _ seriously  hampered by service in the cabinet.
