C, THURSDAY,.JANUARY 10,,1907.  ~f������<^  .No. 27,;  A  Conservatives!. Eholt will give a  small majority to Warren with  Dynes second and Naden,practically oni'of it. The vote at Greenwood, Anaconda and the Mother  Lode will be between Warren and  Dynes for first place, with Naden  about fifty short of cither of them,  As,this paper said last week, the  Liberal candidate is almost sure of  third place. Ir. fact many'of the  Liberals in the. city concede the  d"fent of Mr. Naden, and are going to support either "Warren or  Dynes in accordance with their  personal sympathies.  The Liberal candidate returned  Sunday from atrip west as far as  Canyon city, on the Kettle river,  holding a  meeting at Hock creek  1      Political Pointers      ri  The iirst political meeting of die  campaign held in  Greenwood took  place on Wednesday evening.    The  meeting was -called in the inlen'sts  of Edgar W. Dynes. Socialist candidate.    The Auditorium was comfortably  Oiled, a large  number of  ladies being present.    Frank Steele  occupied  the   chair   aud   made a  short introductory   speech  outlining thc aims of Greenwood   Local.  Edgar   W.   Dynes   was   the   firs!  speaker, and  took  about an hour  in   outlining his   platform.     The,  greater part of the time was devoted to the  diseased  meat question  which came up in   the house "last  session.    Mr.   Dynes   placed   the  blame for this on  the  old   parties  and  claimed that under Socialism  an   investigation   would   at   once  have been held.    If the facts were  as stated,  Mr.   Dynes   alone is to  blamejfor the guilty parties not having been punished.    All he had to  do was to lay an  iforuia1 ion before  n justice of thc pea'e, charging the  parties with selling  dit-cised meat,  and  an   investigation   would have  been held, aud  puni.-bmenc  meted  out to the guilty peisou or person-.  That would have bceii'thc practical  way.    Out.side of 'the di.-eu^r-ion'of  this grievance, the   speech was an  able one and  well   deliveied,  the  speaker outlining his ennrse in the  legislature   along   S'lci.ilisiic   line-  should he heeiecttd.

Uefore .sitting down there  was a little cro-Miro between Mr.  Naden and a person in the back  part of the hall over Cromwell. As  Oliver has been dead forjsomo centuries the question of how many  widows he made in Ireland did not  appeal to fhe audience,, and the  chairman suppressed the person tit  the back of the hall and Mr. Naden  sat down.  E G. Warren, the Conservative  candidste, was then called up.m  and was enthusiastically received.  lie spoke briefly, getting in a neat  dig at Mr. Naden and paid talkers,  by referring to Duncan Hoss,'M.I\,  who had come till the way from  Ottawa to afford the people of  British Columbia the plea-ure of  listening to him. He promised to  go fully into the 'issues at a meeting which he would hold-on the  18th inst.  Benj. F.

Saturday evening. The meeting  was ,-iddivssed by Smith Curtis and  the Liberal candidate. There  were about a dozen present, mo.-t  of whom arc voters iu ihe Siuiilka-  nu'en disci ict. . The Conservative  candidate was not represented.  Duiiu.ui R'.ss arrived in the city  from Ottawa Monday, and Tuesday -oine of the .south end salo-nis  reported a phenomenal increase in  business.

Premier McBride will contest  Victoria city as well as Dewdney.  The other Conservatives placed in  nomination in that city are H. B.  Thompson,H. F. W. Behnsoti and  alderman Fred Davie. The Con  servative ticket has a fighting  chance in the Capital city.  The Liberals do not appear to  have yet tumbled to the fact that  they ��������� are hopelessly- beaten in  Greenwood riding.  W.'W. B. Mclnnes will .have  "also run" in Vancouver when the  rettrns are in. ',  achievement, but by universal consent tho finance minister is entitled  to a special meed of praise. There  is a time-honoured warning for the  man of whom all men speak well,  and if Mr. Tatlow were not the  most modest of men it might  have some application to  him in view of the fact that even  the Opposition organs-agree that  he is an excellent minister. In the  face of this testimony, to say nothing of the highest opinion of his  colleagues it is difficult to see how  the province could fail to suffer by  his removal from Cabinet rank.���������  The Weck\  Dill pickles at the Kussell-Law-  Caul field Co. store.  Duncan 'Ross left yesterday  morning for Grand Forks, to endeavor to make a compromise by  dropping a Liberal in one constituency aud a Conservative in the  other. We are not compromising  in Greenwood riding.  Mr. Dynes' opening meeting was  to have been held at Boundary  Falls Tuesday evening, but owing  to the no'n arrival of Benj. F. Wilson, who is to speak at his meetings   during   the campaign it was  During tho week considerable  work has been done by E. G.  Warren, the Conservative candidate, and the Greenwood committee, completing the organization and making a personal canvas.  The results of the AVork done so  far have been very satisfactory and  there is now no doubt that in  Greenwood Mr. AVarnen will have  a substantial majority over the  liberal"candidate. At Boundary  Falls tho Liberal candidate will not  poll raoro than ten yqtes, the other  thirty odd will bo pretty pvenly  divided between the Conservative  and Socialist candidates. West of  Boundary Falls tho Liberals will  have a majority of three over the  postponed.  Mr. Warren held a meeting at  the Mother Lode Monday evening  and had a short folk with about  thirty electors. Short spceches  were made l-y the candidate and  Mr. Sutherland and were favorably  received.       _____   ���������  The latest is that John Houston  will run in Yinir as an independent, and will laud in the political  sump.  Now that the time for action  has arrived it behooves every voter  to be ready to do bis duty to himself and his country, lie should  not bo misled by the slanders of  political aspirants for power, and  place ngains.t those whose positions  they are'-,seeking.'    , '  Every man should strip from  the language of party warfare the.  misstatements and fallacies it contains, ��������� and vote as conscience dictates. In no period in tho history  of our province havo nioi'o desper-  ato means been devised to attain  power than aro now being made  use of by the opposition, To catch  the vote, to blind the eyes of the  voter, they distort factn, falsify the  records and try to blacken ihe  character of their opponents. They  havo no great principle of public  policy to'.HtjbHjitufe for that which  From Deficit to Surplus  When  the  Hon.   R.  G. Tatlow  delivered his first budget speech on  March 28th,  1905.  he pointed out  that   for  a   period of,twelve years  the  finances  of  the  province had  been   falling  into  arnars  at  the.  average rate   of ������750,000   per annum.      For the financial year pro-  ceding  the  advent ofthe Mi-Bride  administration   tlu: d'Tieit reached  the  cn.irmou.-  .-ntn of 81.510.00').  He slated further that at chat (lite  the  excess   ol'   current    liabilities  over all  current; assets was S820,-  129.     On   Ma.eh 3rd, 1900,'. completing   the second full year of hi-  uunnciid   'ontrol,  Mr. Tatlow wan  ablo.ti'   announce   a   surplus   of  S'-'GS.-Oa.     lie' d'id not'atfemp't to  take    cr-dit     to   himself    or    the  government to   which   he belonged  for  ttiio phenomenal   change, but  wisely and.safely left tho inference  to   the   intelligent   and fair judgment   of   the   electors.      He did.  however,   point out that the excess  of  revenue  was due to the growth  aiid_   improved    condition  of our  industries,   and  to the natural expansion  of  receipts through gratifying provincial development.   He  might have added  to the already  over bearing debt of the province  by further mortgaging its splendid  natural resources,   but he had the  courage  to adopt what was at the  moment an  unpopular course, but  one  which was based upon correct  business principles, practically the  ''cutting of one's coat according to  the cloth"; in other words increasing taxation iu order to pay operating expenses.   It is not too much  to say that those who were loudest  in   their, denunciations of this policy  when  it was announced have  long ceased to criticise,  and are,  today amongst the most loyal sup-  po'ters of the government.    The  end has amply justified the means  Tho    finance    minister   had   the  provision to recognize that if ho  was giving hostages to  Fortune,  they would   bo   redeemed   at an  early   date.      Ho  rightly judged  thai  tho province  was on the eve  ofj wide-spread  development, and  of an era of prosperity with tho advent  of   which  taxpayers  would  speedily forget the   extra impost  they had carried to insure the winning of the race.     Tho result is  that instead of having to face the  electors   today   with   a   depleted  treasury and  an  augmented pro  Eagles Install  Monday evening the officers of  the local aerie, Fraternal Order of  Eagles, .were installed by District  Deputy J.

Sawmill'Men in Trouble.  * Sawmill - men in the Chesaw  country seem to be having their  troubles with the government as  well as other sections. List week  H. J. Richter of that place was  arrested and brought before L'nitcd  States Commissioner Cresson for  cutting $200 worth of timber on  government land. The defendant  waived thc examination and was  put under SI,000 bonds for his appearance in ' Spokane before the  district court. Thc bond was  easily furnished and Mr. Ritcher  is now back at the mill turning  out much needed lumber for the  settlers. The Chesaw News says  of the case in its last issue:  "The town was thrown into-i  state of excitement this, week by  the arrival of United States Mai-  shal Davenpeck from Spokane, and  the arrest Thursday morning of H.  J. Ritcher, the well known rancher  and sawmill man who resides aud  operates a mill a few miles south  of Chesaw.  "Developments revealed the fict  that the arrest was made upon  complaint of District Attorney  Lind?ey, of Spokane, which complaint alleges that the tie fen lant.  during the month of February,  190G, cut and removed timber from |  government land near his mill to  tho value of S200.

Sir  Wilfred  Laurier names the  dize it with the lands ol the province; nor can it confer wealth upon  its Ottawa coteries, owing to the  circumstance that the public domain is under provincial management, ^rljor these reasons an administration controllable by Ottawa is desired by Sir Wilfred and  his fellow politicians, aud Mr.  Melnnes is proposed as the official  who would bj most likely to carry  tho province with Federal aid, and  to make tho government of Biitish  Columbia a species of Ottawa protectorate, doing what the Ottawa  politicians desire, aud applying its  election machinery to the promotion of Ottawa interests.  This question of the solidity of  the Ottawa and provincial governments is one of the most serious  confronting the Dominion. In  early days the Liberal party took  the ground and there should be no  connection between the Federal  and local powers. In later days,  under the present leader and bis  group of grafters, the policy is altered, and there is on foot .a project  to make the Ottawa government a  sort of central power controlling  all the provincial administrations,  and requiring from them the support necessary to the continuance  of the Ottawa men in office regardless of the desires of thc people.

W. B. Melnnes as a candidate, for provincial  honors- justifies the publie in look-  ing for other surprises. We doulit,  however, the likelihood of Mr.  Duncan Ross resigniniug his seat  in the Dominion house to enter the  local arena as has been reported.  We doubt it for two reasons. The.  doubt is that Mr. Ross is cunning  enough to appreciate a good thing  when he has it and is understood  to have laid particularly to heart,  in his early youth, the moral  taught iu the story of the dog who  lost the bone he was carrying by  snatching at the image of it which  he saw reflected in the waters of a  brook. The second is that the  Liberal leaders at Ottawa, if they  have parted with all political honesty, have not parted with all political intelligence. Of what service  Mr. Ross, as a member of the Brit-  PHONi-  %.:!l!ll:llllllll.!llllll!llli:illlllllll:illllllil  R  65  was accused of gross wrong doing  by Senators Legris and Choquette,  and as a consequence he was  transferred. He is now commissioner for the construction ofthe  governmeut end of the Grand  Trunk Pacific at $10,000 a year,  and a Mr. Gouin, another valet of  Sir Wilfred's, has.been appoirted  to his place. The three Maritime  Province premiers are the representatives of the Ottawa government, .and the two men appointed  in Saskatchewan and Alberta received their positions solely as the  reward for obedience in the matter of tho constitution granted in  1905. Tho Ottawa government  has now no control in British Columbia hcessree Mr. McBride is an  Independent man, owing no al-.  legiauce to the evil groups at the  Federal capital. But the ministers would like to dominate the Pacific province for several reasons.  In the first place, with a friendly  administration in office tLe election  cheating can he carried on with  freedom. There can be no such  tnpleasant exposure as that which  has taken place in Ontario under  anon-compliant ministry. Jn the  second place, a government which  ia well iu hand can be depended  upon to sacrifice provincial interests for Federal purposes. Finally.  the Grand Trunk Pacific is pas-sin  to tho provincial Liberal party or  to the ruling influences at the federal capital,  it is difficult to perceive.    He is indeed a useful man,  as the agent of this or that corporation,   in  his capacity as a member  of parliament, but that service does  not demand ability or knowledge.  A.11 that the agent is required to do  is to obey instructions.    His thinking, and even  his talking, exc-pt  of the briefest and most formal nature, is done for him.    As a statesman  of this description Mr.   Rossis a glittering sik cess.    He is per-'  haps without a peer.    He is a second edition of W. A. Galliher,with  Mr. Galliher's ability left out, and  we have had abundant illustrations  during six sessions of the liouse of  Commons of the extent to winVh  Mr,   Galliher will go in justifying  the good  opinion  in   which he is  held by the corporations.    Beside-  fathering   bills  for   railways  Mr.  Ross has done nothing as a member of the federal  parliament except earn,  in  common  with   Mr.  Galirher,     the  fitly   of   Hooligan'  which   was   conferred  upon these  two British Columbia  representatives by  the   discerning Toronto  press.    As the opportunities which  the provincial legislature offers for  Mr. Ross' particular description of  statesmanship while they arc i.ofc  entirely absent,  are comparatively  Maedonald or Melnnes would do  with him if they had him. That  the Hooligans are now traveling  west with the man of destiny from  Dawson may, therefore, be the  purest coincidence and entirely devoid of any political significance.  It must -be remembered, however, that there are more influences  behind the Liberal campaign in  British Columbia than the government at,Ottawa, and that while the  federal administration nny quite  properly estimate Mr. Ross' political worth at zero his value regarded  from another standpoint, may not  be such a minus quantity. The  control which the federal authori-  fies desire to exercise at the present juncture in this province is mi- I  doubtedly in favor of the Grand  Trunk Pacific railway, which has  apparently not been  treated by thejg  MeI'rido government with that de-ij _  lerence which it regard, as its due. j������  $HIi\(rLES.

Mr. Morse came  out here to receive tho tribute do-  lnatnanded, and was grieved that  it was denied him.

Since that"  time the Laurier-Hays mrrger has  been resolved on a, change of administration in British Columbia,  and in selecting suitable agents to  carry out, their intentions ifc is not  improbable that Mr. Ross has been  given a commission by (lie railway  company, while , .Mr. Melnnes'  qualifications in the political field  recommended him to the attention  of the politicians.

Cartier, Prop,  See America First  There is.more .in  that   appeal  than the average'American,- east or  west, realizes at first thought. The  difference between  Europe ami the  United States is the difference between decrepit age and bounding,  hopeful youth.      Where there is  character, there is reverence for the  first;   where   there   is   hope   and  heroism to forge out a fortune and  a name,  there- i* cheer in the hit  ter.     Of course,  men and women  will   visit the old world; business,  curiosity, a desire for information,  and sometimes 'a false pride, will  hurry them away,   but  with  all  these classes clear knowledge  of  their native land, with its wonders,  its powers and   manifold advantages,   will   serve  to   enhance the  pleasure and  profit of   a  foreign  visit.     As the wonders of opening  spring exceed the solemn closing  down of the world in autumn, so a  new land has vastly more of interest and,of pleasure to the thoughtful searcher, than the rare art, side-  by side withcthe manifest decay, of  ancient civilizations.     Thpre is a  business side to it also.    Americans are paying to foreign steamship companies, foreign hotels and  railroads, and, in  the purchase of  curios,   $190,000,000   per annum.  Suppose a tenth of that could be  saved next .year and put in one art  palace.    It would erect a structure  that would shine sbut on the world  as did the templ^.of Jo������'eof old,  aud fillit with all'that is rarest in  European art. A proper educational training of young Americans  would kindle a desire on their  part to know well their own  country before seeking another.  aud would cause them to desire to  see .-their own excel in what it i.-,  inferior now.    Of cour.-e, there arc  this is more and more needed as  the years roll on and the rage for  wealth, keeps up its unnatural  struggle and the disposition .increases to establish caste, differences, and insidiously saps the  manhood and womanhood of the  country by teaching continually  the omnipotence of money.  And  it keeps-the money of the  people at home.  Were our'country  to  become involved 'iu   war with  either   Great  Britain,   France or  Germany, the first"$400,000 either  one would use to break our power  would be the money that has been  paid them   by   American   tourists  the   past   ten   years.'   A hundred  millions saved annually that is now  frittered  away and forever lost to  us,   would in ten years, be enough  to command permanent peace between   our   own   and ^all foreign,  countries, for in war,- money wins,  and  a hundred millions a year for  ten   years   would   be   such a reinforcement  to  out   national wealth  that  the world   would  see that to  meet  the   United   States   in   war  would   be   tha   destruction of the.  power   that   awakened it. ���������Goodwin's Salt Lake Weekly.

MARSHALL, Prop,  that (Mine or age  that canuat be swiftly imitated^  This is true, the more especially of  art; but all the precautions should  be taken to seize upon opportunities, as they may be presented.  The old world waited liJOO'years  for a Michael Augelo, but it had  prepared for its coining; for 500  years it had kept running its art  schools; it hud built in all its capitals sublime, cathedrals, triumphal  arches, classic columns, unjestic  palaces, until the souls of young  mothers had absorbed the beauty  which they transmitted to their  children. It is a pleasure to think  that the work done by the great  European masters was but causing  the full materialization of the longings in their mother's souls to take  form on canvas or on marble. If  .what is expended by wealthy  Americans in a single ye>ir, mostly  for pleasure, in the old world could  be saved and given form in art and  music schools, iu shining structures  and in art, for public exhibition,  such object lessons would be  gheu our people that henceforth  their ambition would be to make  of our country a place that the  rich of all the world would come  to u������, as our rich now go abroad to  see.  There  is,, moreover, a material  side to the question.     If a rich  New Yorker in a visit west spends  $1,000 or $5,000, it will be sure to  gravitate back to New York.    If  on  his travels, he buys a mine for  8100,000 that pays him back half  that amount annually, it all gravitates back to   New York.     The  west and south are filled with opportunities; the money expended  remains under the flag; it helps to  make  the visit in the succeeding  year pleasantcr; it strengtens patriotism; it gives men and women a  new pride in native land, more respect   'for  the   whole   American  people, a more earnest wish to see  our country the very foremost in  all good things in all the world; it  causes a closer drawing together of  our people; a better understanding  Infidelity is  Doubts   are  sin.

Had  it known that it could have  secured  a  hundred kittens for the  ten   dollars   that was offered,  it  would have made the' exchange.  But for the money as such it had  no   use.     Oh !   Gold,  Gold, how  many crimes have been committed  in thy name !    Oh ! rippling era of  childhood !  who  would not barter  a pyramid of guineas from here to  the sun  privilege of a return to its  innocence and its joy?���������Comanche  Chief.

BlJNSON  ning thing and the most insidious  is the city club.  The more 'bent, mashed and  warped the lady's hat is the more  fashionable it is.  I'll wear garments made of wire  before I'll wear garments made at  30 cents a dozen.  I never saw a first cli.ss billiard  player who was worth the powder  and lead to kill him.  There is such a thing as the race  running'out .'in 'dudes, and God  knows I itiii glad of it.  If any of my daughters cut off  any of their skirts, I don't want  them to start frtfin.thc top.  An honest man who's scekinc  after God is as sure of heaven as  'the man who is on a full tilt after  glory. .  I've got as much respect for  those fellows with striped clothes  as I have for you who hop around  at every tap of the devil's drum.gjg  Ip have seen men converted from  the barroom and from everything  else, but never, never have I seen  a man converted from a club. i  Sow little parties and reap big,,  ones. Sow these and reap ball-,1  rooms. Sow these and reap ger-j  mans,  and from these roup spider-' . ,  legged dudes, and from these you'll: electricity,  reap a half  thimbleful of calves'; baths,  foot jelly.  An Eskimo Grave  An Eskimo grave is a strikingly  odd affair. The corpse is wrapped  in reindeer or saal skin and laid on  frozen ground or ice. Stones are  then placed around and over it,  more to protect it from meddlesome  bears than to mark the spot. The  man's boat, gun harpoon, and  sledge are placed beside his remains, and his dogs are killed and  then harnessed to his sledge. That  the dogs should suffer death with  their master may seem strange, but  the bunt for food is so difficult and  often without success that every  unnecessary month to feed is a  burden to the Eskimo. There is a  strange code of honor among these  primitive people concerning the  belongings of one of their dead.  None of a man's worldly effects  aro appropriated by his family or  friends upon his death. "Whatever  is not placed beside his gra-'p is left  unmolested in his abode, which is  never again entered, and left to decay.

Naden, the Liberal  candidate for Greenwood riding.  During the recent strike of the  -I>. C. Copper company's employees,  commencing November 21st and  .continuing into the month of December, I, as president of the local  ,itnifl!a of .the Western Federation  rof Miners, was obliged to attend  .the final conference held at the K.  jC. Copper company's offices.  -There were present Jir. Kcffer,  ,1-uaunger; Mr. Eccleston, secretary  oF the company; Messrs. Frank  ���������Steele, Thomas CJouhl, and Rowland liawliugon of the Miners'  jiitijon committee, ��������� Mr. Ii. A.  -M'athowson, secretary of the Greenwood Miners' union and myself as  .president of the union.  I stated tlurt I understood thai  -Mr. Naden-was on record as favor-  jug the eight-hour law for Muckers  and asked him if I was correct.  Mr. Naden replied that 1 had  ^aaked a very leading question. I  pointed out that it was necessary  .under ,the circumstances to ask and  atisw'er leading questions. Mr.  <Nad.&n then replied that, he had  j3>ecn in favor of an eight-hour law  ior smelters, but after looking over  ,1 he conditions of the 13. C. Copper  company's plant he had come to  vihe conclusion that such a law  ^votLld not be fair, as a great many  .positions ".-wore not in his opinion,  ������sther dangerous or unhealthy.  I at once pointed out to him the.  .-injustice of basing his conclusions  /ipon the conditions obtaining at  line smelter as represcntiiiir the  ,vho[o smelting industry of British  vO>lu!?>bia, :i)!it notwithstanding the  indisputable ffti.vnesa of my argu-  innnt he still held to his view.  JTe also sought .to impress upon  <the secretary of the 13. C. Copper  company tlie fact that- there was no  .immediate danger of there being  an eightihour smelter law passed  in British .Columbia. From this  I would infer .that were Mr. Naden  ^elected to represent us at Victoria  .he would net support an cight-  po ir law.  Now, fellow worker.-!, you can  draw yrur own conclti'ions. Who  ;rt'ill best represent the working  interests of ,this riding���������a man of  Mr. Naden's views or one who is  .pledged fir-fit, last and all the time  >to work for the welfare, health and  happiness of .1 lie wage-earner f  The .
