Mr. McBride, Hon.  Mr. Bowser and E. Miller  WE are not selling out  your credit is good  MORRIN, THOMPSON & CO.  The opera house was well rilled on  Thursday evening to hear ihe railway  policy and other political matters set  forth hy Premier McBride, Hon. VV.  J. Bowser, attorney general, and Ernest  Miller, local Conservative candidate.  The meeting was opened shortly before seven o'clock with A. S. Hood in  the chair, who after a few remarks,  called on Mr. Miller.  _ Mr. Miller spoke briefly intimating  his great admiration for the McBride  government and predicting its return  to power on the 25th inst. On account  of the presence of the premier and the  attorney-general he would not use up  valuable time, the meeting ha ing to  conclude by 9 p.m.  . Hon. W. J. Bowser was codially received, and after a few generalities on  the splendid record of the McBride  administration, featuring the prominent  part taken by the attorney-general,  particularly in alleged encrouchments  of the Ottawa government, he touched  on issues of the campaign.  He discussed the local option question. On polling day a separate bollot  will be provided for the vote on the  question of whether the peopleofB.C.  want the government to pass a local  option bill or not, and the government  will abide by the vote of the plebiscite  if 50% of the votes cast for ca-didates  is in favor of local option.  The white labor problem, however,  was the burden of his address, and  heavy blows were directed at the federal government for its attitude, alleging that the members from B. C. had  not insisted upon the insertion of- an  anti-Asiatic clause in the G.T.P;/contract. Although reference, was made  ���tpJL}uncjyv.J^ojj^JL^  was not discussed. RiversAVilb_qn_.an_d,  Ti'siys." according to'llie speaker, had  wanted to bring in cheap; labor for.  their road in this province, promising  to deport them; without them the road  could not be completed before 19011,  but  the   provincial    government    had  said "No!"  Mr. Bowser' appealed for support  for the government's candidate in this  riding. He said the government could  do more for a constituency where it  had a supporter. When opposition  members ask the government for assistance to their constituencies the government could not feel satisfied that  such aid was necessary, but if a supporter recommended financial assistance the government would naturally  know that it was a reasonable demand  and would acquiesce. He intimated  that he wasn't offering a bribe.  After concluding with references to  the government's railway policy, the  attorney-general left for Greenwood  to address a meeting, being followed  by the premier and Mr. Miller later.  Considerable enthusiasm greeted the  first mininer of the province on rising.  He referred to the kind reception he  had received in Phoenix on this and  other occasions.  Before launching on the railway  policy, the paramount issue of the  campaign, the premier referred to the  financial state of affairs of the province  when    he   became    prime    minister.  The treasury then Jhad a deficit of  several hundredP' thousand dollais,  while today there was $4,146,000^11  the bank drawing 4% interest. The  credit' of British Columbia in the  money markets was equal if not  superior to the other provines in the  Dominion. .    ������-,-���>.  Tbe life of the present. government  would not expire till the spring ot 1911,  and while the ardous task of campaigning was not ah easy matter, the premier  said he pledged himself to submit to  the plectors of the,.province a progressive railway policy arid now that he believed he had a-'spuijd proposition to  offer he was appealing to the' people  for its appropriation;;; He gave a sym  opsis of the agreement with Mackenzie  & Mann to build their trunk through  to Vancouver and referred to the great  development of the province which  would result.      . ;   .-,  We get this road without the expenditure of a single dollar, said the  premier. In return' we get a great  transcontinental line, which will place  us in direct touch with 6000 miles of  railroad east of the rockies ; we get an  expenditure of something like $ jo.ooo,-  000 in our provtneeand we get a standard wage for the worker, and we keep  this work for white, labor; millions of  acres which are now .barren will come  under the plow and encourage settlement. ,,     -,  In reviewing the Ketlle Valley  agreement, the speaker said it would  ensure an extension^ that road from  the Boundary to Nicola, and concluded  with an appeal' foi*-support for Mr.  Miller. ''���'���:������/'  The Poll ileal Pot  John R. Jackson, the Conservative  candidate in Greenwood  was tn  town  on  Thursday   evening   to   meet   the  premier.  H. C. Kerman of Grand Forks has  been appointed returning officer for  this riding.

Dirt is now flying lively on the construction of the C.P.R. branch from  Phoenix to the Butish Columbia Copper mines in Wellington camp. Two  camps are now located, a large number  of subcontracts have been let, and  about 150 men are employed.  James Rawnsley was fatally crushed  at the Greenwood smelter on Wednes  day morning.

The announcement will be hailed  with delight by the lovers of the best  in dramatic art. With Miss Jeanne  Russell in the role created by Miss  Berry more, and surrounded-by a New  York cast chosen especially for their  fitness in the parts, and an elaborate  scenic production including every  detail, and a special musical program  by the Cousin Kate company's orchestra, the pioduction smacks of the  metropolitan in many particulars.  I. Spinks, who has been connected  with the electrical department, of  Granby mines for several months, left  on Thursday on a visit to his parents  in Grand Forks, prior to. leaving for  Oakland, California to attend  college.  the Liberal party, in its issue of Nov.  6, after a grand stand play of editorial  eloquence in favor of the McBride,  government, says:  "The course of the Sun does not  mean that the paper has abandoned  faith in the present progressive admin-  stration of Sir Wilfred Laurier. In  future, however, the paper will be independent politically. In the present  campaign we are firmly convinced that  the defeat of the McBride government  would be a calamity to the "province." I  ���-O^S^^l^n^oirrWe^jrtmara WKsH  Sun said editorially :  "The so-called independent .journal  eschews politics until it ascertains]  which party has tha largest sack or the  most patronage to distribute. Then  it casts its hypocritical independence  to the four winds, and proceeds to feed  its readers on equally hypocritically  pure politics."  Question���What are the dimensions  of the "sack" which caused the Sun to  flop?   FOURTEEN KILLED  "'   AND MXNY INJURED  Catastrophe -on  Electric Line  ���      near yancouver  j- i Fourteen i men.  were i" killed,  three  fatally injured, and six others  more or  less seriously injured in a head-on collision oh  the- ihtefutban  line  of the  British   Columbia   Electric    Railway  company, at  Lakeyiew   station,  near  Vancouver, at 6:05 o'clock Wednesday  morning.    The dead and injured were  passengers and crew of a car which  left the Vancouver tram depot at 5:50  o'clock for New Westminster, and the  majority of them  were  employees ,of  the railway company on  their  way to  work at the New Westminster carshops.  At   s  a.m.   an electric  locomotive  took  a; C.P.R.  flat  car  loaded  with  heavy pieces of timber for  delivery to  the new iron works on the., interurban  line, a short distance but of Vancouver.  On arriving there the conductor found  an empty box car on the switch and  left the loaded car on the main line to  shift the empty.  Returning he coupled  the two cars together to back the loaded car on the switch and when he had  gone  half a car length the coupling  parted and the flat car ran -away.    A  brakeman was on the car and tried to  apply.the brakes without success.        ;  The   conductor,   seeing   what   was  happening ran back and threw a block  of cordwdod under the wheels to block!  the runaway but the car  rode - over it.  The motorman when he saw what was  occurring hastened down the line after  the car, shrieking his whistleas a warning, the brakeman having jumped,after  going 106 yards. ' . '.  In the meantime-the first passenger  tram from Vancouver to New Westminster ��� leftr the former; terminal :at  5:30 a.m. with 23 passengers on board.  As the tram was rounding the curve  at Lakeview, just outside the city  limits, Motorman Thorburn saw the  runaway fiat car directly upon him,  coming at a terrific speed. Shouting a  warning he started to jump, but before  he could leave the vestibule his car was  struck with terrific impact.  The flat car with its heavy load  crashed into the passenger tram and  the heavy timbers plunged forward  acting as a battering ram. In an in!  stant the passenger tram looked like a  wrecked flat car, and in the debris of  Jlie  been killed instantly, while, several  others expired before medical assistance could be procured.

ABtl>  Saturday, Novembkr 13, 1909  Wbaterer may be the full nature qf  the understanding between the govenj  ment and the Canadian Northern, it'it  certain tbat in tome respects the policj  adopted by the ��� government is not in  'the best interests of the province. At  first tight tbe new railway policy is one  calculated to appeal to .the people, but  .after consideration the glamor wears  off and the feeling is that Premier McBride is unnessarily pledging tbe credit  of the province in a manner that cannot be endorsed by those who have  due regard to the fitness of things.  -Any aid granted by a government  forirailway construction should be for  roads tbat will act as colonizers and  means of development of new' territory  'and in providing for?assistance to the  'Canadian 'Northern' for '.that portion of  .the   proposed ,line from Yellowhead  . pass to Kamloops, traversing as it does  an .undeveloped country, the'government'is within its duty, even though  the form in which the aid is given may  be open to criticism. , But to pledge  ihe credit of the province for the con  "struction of a line from- Kamloops to  the, coast,   passing   through - a - large  stretch of territory  that   is  but   little  productive and paralleling the C.P.R.-,  ^u.contrary to .the essence of govern;  /'n^t^assistance.,   This is, one, of'the  ; weak .spots, one of several, in the  Mc  ''Bride' railway policy. - ���  - There is every reason for encourag-  *     ���* T    '~*'-* ���"'        ' \ , '' '       ,  ing railway  construction but, had the  ',-'.,1       ,        . .> <       * 1  'McBride, government  been really de.  atrous of best ��� furthering the interests  of Utee':> province < they would * have' inl  stste��IJupbn thte road. finding a way to  city, opening up a large district, rich  minerals, coal and agn'cuJ ural land-,  now practically undeveloped for lack of  adequate-transportation facilities.

In place  ' of making the'granting of' government  aid .conditional upon the. road "being  built through the territory to the south  of this city what did they do? This  is 'what, Mr.  Bowser said   happened:  1 "We^would like to have had the line  go down,through the Nicola and Similkameen country, but McKenzie &  Marin are practical railway builders,  not'men of sentiment, and would not  agree. They wanted the best possible  grad�� for their railway."    There is the  f whole thing in a nutshell. The people  want the country south  of us opened  With half the labor, and at  "''half- the cost of other soap,  'SuaUght   does  the   whole  washing- In half tbe time,  wet   without injuring- the  most delicate fabric.  U8�� it the Sunlight way.  Follow she directions.  up; it is in the best interests of the  province that such should be done.  But McKenzie & Mann wanted a  grade. ��� The government ignored the  needs of the people and succumbed to  the insistence of Mr. Mann. Mr.  Bowser alleges that railway men are  "most astute," "they are not men of  sentiment." Are the members of the  government lacking in astuteness, are  they overflowing with sentiment? Is  it mere sentiment to insist upon the  railway needs of an undeveloped country ? It is becoming more and more  clear as the ministers open their  mouths and let fair little scraps of the  truth that, they simply agreed to the  demands 1 of thc Canadian Northern  without due regard to the requirements  of the province and the essence of  government aid to railways, tbe pro  viding of adequate transportation facilities where they are most needed.���  Kamloops Sentinel.  ffcs Narslt ��f thi Ksstsaay  Since fruit-growing has been intro  duced into the, Kootenay, the morale  of the-place have been ' elevated, according to Edgar William' Dynes, who  contributes an excellent article to the  November Busy Man's on the subject.  In the old'days most of the towns had  the lid off and a hot fire in the furnace  all the time. It had the habit of  breaking the" hearts of more sky pilots  than any stretch of ground in North  America. An M.A , B.D., came out  from the east to take charge of a  church in a wide-open smelter town,  but the devil won out in the first round,  for\thei'eloquent divine Iboarded the  eastern train, before the, sunset of the  secpnd^ayJJ.Ah"oth.e��-1��Bn^��rrungrsenRi-  tive chap tried to stay,'but "could rot  's'ax'd rht* pressure at all���h^ lost his  bearings completely, insane is the  common woid;���and it is only of late  years that he is back���his old dashing  self. ' One of the first things in a new  fruit settlement is , the service in the  school-house, and a little later, the  neat frame church. Sometimes the  saloon man comes along with a petition to, get a saloon license., But he  i' '       ���. 1     ( .       '  gets, few  signatures.    And   he. is  no  sooner 1 gone than a counter > petition is  filed. There is nothing of the free  and-easy about the new,- the dawning,  era in Kootenay.  Just recently an enterprising- indi-  vidal, who acts as' station agent in a  little fruit-growing community for a  living,'and speculates in almost everything else on the bide, , got a bright  idea, he thought - of bui ding a hotel  supposedly to house the travel mg  public,, but really to make a fortune in  selling thirst quenchers to the good  folk of the valley. He got out a petition in support of his nright idea,  but'the'fruit-glowers, thinking differently, ��� got out another twice as big.  No public house in their fair valle ,  they "said. They would never have  their boys drink anything stronger than  apple-cider. That settled it. There  are no whisky bottles on the shelf behind the lonely bar and no stupid  topers in the doorway. This is the  Kootenay of today.  The Dominion Government will  construct a drydock at Prince Rupert  to cost $1,500,000.

American Exodus ta Canada  "The exodus of American farmers  to Canada continues to be a phenomenon of the first importance. More of  them are crossing the border this fall  than ever before, and they are flocking  thither from all parts of the country.  Formerly it was the middle west alone  which thus lost the heart of its citizenship. Now all sections of the Union  suffer alike. Besides the regret which  we cannot help feeling over the migration of many thousands of excellent  citizens to a foreign country, the matter  has an economic side which causes  some concern. The 70,000 farmers  who will go to Canada to live this fall  will take with them some $70,000,600  in cash and effects."���Portland Ore-  gonian.  _ |  Kamloops claims to have the Grand  Trunk Pacific heading for that city en  route to Vancouver.

It has a population of 18,000 and is the centre of  rich fruit-growing district.

A Scientific Wonder  The Secret of a Famous Healing Balm  Invest  in  North  Vancouver  Inside Lots  Let me show You where  $500 Invested Now will  double itself in Twelve  Months.  North Vancover is destined  to be the Brookly of the Pacific  coast. I am offering choice  lots two-and-a-half blocks east  of the Grand Boulevard, close  to electric line, supplied with  city water and all other conveniences. This property is  within the one-mile circle  which must in the very near  future be the centre of the  great residential district. It  is now growing rapidly and  many lots in this section of  the city have advanced from  $2500 to $3750  within the past two months.  The rediscovery of a secret that has  lain hidden in the dust of 20 centuries  is an event full of fascinating interest,  and the story of Zam Buk, the world-  famed first aid and skin cure will  always enlist attention, Zam-Buk is  the virtual descendant of those wonderful and mysterious herbal balms by  which the manly athletes of Ancient  Greece and the stalwart gladiators of  Rome, ensured the healthiness and  ready-healing of their skin.  Many are the attempts that were  made to produce a perfect balm for  the skin, but only in Zam Buk has the  ideal been realized. Since its discovery  Zam-Buk has been welcomed in mansion and cottage, and the people of  two hemispheres realized that they  have been placed in possession of an  absolutely unique cure for sKin complaints. -  The reasons for this triumph of  science are simple and few. Taking a  lesson from the ancients, the proprie  tors of Zam-Buk first of all wisely decided that the ideal balm must be  purely herbal; and contain not the  slightest trace of rancid animal fats or  poisonous minerals; Thus Zam-Buk  is made from rich and pure essences  obtained-from certain rare medicinal  herbs. These juices and extracts are  prepared and refined by ingenious  scientific processes and then so slcil  fully blended that a unique, effective,  and yet perfectly natural preparation  for disease is secured.  Zam-Buk has an affinity for the  human skin such as no ordinary ointment or linament can possibly possess.  Besides soothing 'pain and allaying  irritation, it possesses unique antiseptic  and germicidal qualities which virtually  chase disease germs out of their hiding-  places in the skin tissues ; at. the same  timeitpurifies ihe pores and invigorates  the natural functions of the skin in a  way that no oiberpaeparation can.  Zani Buk solves in a perfect manner  TRe^probleiri or; always navin^ imndy  at home or at one's work a reliable  first-aid for cuts, burns, scalds, bruises,  lacerations, scratches, etc. Zam-Buk  is without equal for eczema, ulcers,  piles, bad leg, ringworm, scalp sores,  festering sores, sprains, stiffness, poisoned wounds of all kinds, face sores,  chafing, chapped hands, cold sores,  frost-bites, sore feet, diseased ankles,  and all itching, irritation, and inflammation.  Zam-Buk is a daily need in every  household and is sold by all druggists  and stores at fifty cents a box.
