The electors cf Greenwood riding
had the pleasure last Friday, of
seeing hearirj and meeting, H. C.
Brewster, leader of the Liberal
party, and his able lieutenant, M.
A. MacDonald.
At Carmi as the train crew were
changing engines, a large number
of electors presented beautiful
floral boquets to the Liberal leaders, and assured them that but one
vote would be cast against Dr. J.
D. MacLean at Carmi, and even
that vote was doubtful. Tbis enthusiastic reception on the outer
fringe of the riding proved indicative of the very cordial feeling of
the entire riding.
At Eock Creek,. Mr. Brewster
left the train and autoed to Bridesville, in company with Dr. J. D.
MacLean. tbe Liberal candidate
for the riding, where they addressed a large audience at 3:30 p.m.
upon many eubjects of vital interest. The close attention paid to
the speakers during their convincing presentation of the reckless extravagance of the Bowser govern-
Western Float
ment,  clearly indicated  that  tbe
voters of Bridesville have decided to
make a change npon September 14.
Meanwhile Mr. MacDonald, proceeded to Midway, and with J. E.
Thompson, Liberal candidate for
Grand Forks riding, addressed a
meeting at 4 p.m. Mr. MacDonald
dealt extensively with the present
serious financial condition of the
province, due to gross mismanagement under Conservative administration, when an $8,000,000 surplus in 1910 had become a $2,000,-
000 deficit at the present time.
Mr. Thompson in a brief but effec
tive address convinced the audience
that the only solution of the preent
serious provincial condition was
the defeat of the Bowser machine,
and the return of a safe, and sane
business administration.
1 In the evening at Bock Creek,
despite the present busy season, a
large audience assembled to hear
the Liberal leaders and candidates.
All the speakers won unstinted applause as they ponied condemnation into tbe present machine-made
government, refuting misstatements, etc.
Later in the evening the Green*
wood Auditorium was filled to the
doors with a  large,   enthusiastic
audience to greet the Liberal leaders upon their arrival from Hock
Creek.     Although   the  speakers.]
evinced signs of weariness caused
by   speaking   and   travelling    bo
much in one day, a cordial understanding was soon reached between
speakers and audience.   Dr. Vig*
neBux   addressed the  assemblage
upon behalf of the Bed Cross, and
Army Medical Corps.    A t the conclusion   of his   remarks,  J.   L.
White, (flanked by very representative   opponents   of  the Bowser
machine) introduced Mr. Brewster.
In a clear-cut, dispassionate,  but
altogether convincing manner the
Liberal leader mercilessly   flayed
the corrnpt Bowser administration,
vividly depicting from bis personal
observations on his northern trip,
the present wretched condition of
bona fide settlers,   as contrasted
with tha Liberal policy of "Lands
for Settlers, none for Speculators,"
���a policy that would fill the fertile valleys of B.O.  with settlers
we so badly need.   Although extended the usual invitation,  J. B.
Jackson was  not present  to address the meeting in the interests
of the government,   having been
called at the last moment to the
Okanagan upon important business.
Tho Coalmont collieries near
Princeton, B.C., are to be equipped with a tipple and 1200-foot

tons daily. A freight rate to Vancouver of $1.10 a ton over the
Kettle Biver Valley branch of tbe
Canadian Pacific railroad has been
secured.

A HARD TRAIL
Ix these days of dollar worship,
outward show and superstition, the
honest man fiuda his trail full of
thorns. If a parson is honest and
speaks the truth as he sees it, in
opposition to the rules of his
church, he will be tried for heresy,
and receive his marching orders.
If a lawyer tries 60 be honest
and tells his clients that they cannot win, they will go to a shyster
who will take any case for money,
aud use any means to win, even to
tho hiring of skilful liars for the
witness box.
If au honest doctor tells a patient
tli at that there is nothing the mat
ter, except iu imagination, that
paiient will often hike away to
some dishonorable medico who
will humor his notions, fill him
with bread and water pills, and get
his money.
If a merchant keeps the sand out
of his sugar, and does not measure
his thumb with the cotton, some of
his customers will go where they
get cheated, because the prices are
seemingly lower.
The show or circus nearly always
uses lying advertising. Imbned
evidently with the idea that lying
is necessary in order to draw the
crowd, and fill tbe house.
Some women cheat extensively
with paint, powder and padding.
They wish to pass for cream when
they are only skimmed milk. To
have a woman tell her correct age
between 20 and 60, is asking too
much of a sex skilled to the utmost in the art of deception. After
GO we have known some women
who added years, instead of subtracting them from their age.
Why all this feminine deception?
The fault of the men the ladies all
King iu chorup.
The politician who assays 100
percent, in honesty has not yet
been di. covered, because of the selfish and grafting nature of voters.
Any politician who is the personification of honor and high ideals
cannot be elected in this age of
.   dollar chasers.
The honest editor is sometimes
found, but his life is one of excite'
ment. If be exposes the crooks
and shysters in private or public
life, he runs a fearful risk of be
ing knocked down on the street
and concentrated 6 to 1. If he
tells the truth about church
aud state all the phonographic
records of autocratic despotism
and theological tyranny, will boycott him, and sing in one vindictive howl, Crucify him! Crucify
him! He ha9 told the truth about
our masters and muBt not livel
So the editor who desires to live
without war and bloodshed should
not expose the evil and.unlawful
doings of political grafters, legal
shysters, municipal pimps, crooked
merchants or psalm singing hypocrites. He should sup his gruel in
silence, and keep his pen out of
the nitric acid, and watch the
shark skin the sucker, and the
wolf eat the lamb withont patting
forth an effort to protect the inno
cent and save the weak from.de'
stfuction. The spineless editor
never gets a bloody nose, or any
boquets. "Woe to the people who
will not uphold and defend a
fearless, trenchant and truthful
writer. They will clank their
chains in slavery and live upon
the crumbs that fall from the tables
of deepots, tyrants and bulldozers.
We" would rather be a frog and
live upon the green scam of a
swamp, than supinely sit and not
use our pen in defence of liberty
and justice. The good have nothing to conceal, and have only admiration for a trenchant editor.
It is only the sneaking, cowardly,
dishonorable, back-biting and
blackmailing human curs that howl
and writhe in mental agony when
the editorial harpoon tears away
their masks, exposing their detestable acts to the gaze of an outraged and indignant world.

Not much doing ou Rock Creek
this summer. Near the "House

but is handicapped by the lack of
help and money. A steam shovel
might get considerable gold from
the gravel sides of Rock Creek,
About eight miles from Dayton
camp, in what is known as the
''Burnt Ground," Billy Younken,
Joe Frank and Bob Johnson located
three molybdenite claims about a

New Westminster. B. C.
Bill   Appears  To Have Been
Framed As A Direct Blow
At Workingmen.
To the man of means, who is accustomed to buy his liquors by the bottle or case
from the wholesale store or retail shop,
the Prohibition Act means absolutely
nothing, as he can still order his supply
from a neighboring province or the
States, just as easily as in the past, the
only difference being that he will have to
pay a higher cost, on account of transportation charges.
To the working man, who is accustomed to buy his liquor by the bottle or
glass, the Act means, however, something
entirely different. The ordinary working man is not given the opportunity to
lay by money sufficient to provide for his
sending away for a case of liquor, hence
he is under a handicap which does not
interfere with the richman. Then, again,
the working man's usual beverage is beer,
and on shipments of this class the freight
rates are so high as to make the price almost prohibitive to him.
Again, while some working men are
fortunate enough to occupy homes of
their own, a great majority occupy houses
jointly with others. A large proportion
would come under the term of lodgers,
Many others take boarders to help out the
family income. All ot this class would
find that the Prohibition Act was a distinct barrier to their enjoying their personal right to partake of a glass of beer
in their own homes. The Act provides
that a man may import liquor freely for
use in his .own private dwelling. It so
defines the word "dwelling," however,
that householders who occupy premises
jointly are not allowed the privilege of
having liquor for their own private use.
The same is true of lodgers personally,
and the. families of those- who keep
lodgers where more than three room in a
house. As far as homes where boarders
are kapt, the Act is explicit in stating
that the house is not a dwelling, and that
liquor for beverage purposes may not be
brought into it.
The above points covers phases of the
Prohibition Act which are distinctly to
the disadvantage of the workingman, although they mean nothing to the rich
man.
A reading of the Act will- show many
