WERE CHAMBER COMMERCE DELEGATES  Came Is Two Parties, Last Monday and  Tuesday, and Slru���!ed to Realize tbe  Valines! ot the Ore Bodlei In this Camp.  By common consent the tourists that  were in Phoenix last Monday, and  Tuesday stated that one of the most  interesting points they had visited on  t|]eir trip across the Dominion had  been tho minus of ���l'hoenix... There  were close to 125 members in the  two parties, the larger part arriving the  first day. They were met at Grand  Fork's, by Mayor Rumberger and .Secretary Willcox, of the Board of Trade,  and escorted to l'hoenix.  After looking over the smelter at  Grar)(} Forks, where four of the six  furnaces wgfQ of work; as well as the  two converters, t|iey p$n)8 h)' SPPPft'  train to l'hpenix, Stops were made  at the Oro Denoro nnd Snowshoe  mines, to enable them to take 0 look  at tbosfc, promising properties, and then  the train was run up on tlie Knob Hill  spur as fnr as possible. -A. C. Flumer-  felt, one of the officials of the Granby  Co., accompanied the party, and  showed them over and through the  Knob Hill and Old Ironsides mines.  Following that they took supper at the  Granby hotel, going to Greenwood  that night) and thence to Nelson and  back east,  The second party went over the  same ground Tuesday, and bad Wm.  Yolen Williams, the superintendent of  the Grariby mines," to escort them  through the properties. The first party was in charge of H. J. Hodgson, of  Montreal, chairman of the Canadian  Committee of Arrangements, while  George Hadrill, of Montreal, took  charge of th_ e second party, an official  ofthe C, P.- &"from th? ?as,t also being with each party to look after thejr  comfort.  Some very prominent people were  included in the personnel of the visitors, who had been shown courtesies at  every point in the Dominion where  they had stopped. The trip was taken  immediately following the fifth congress ofthe Chambers of Commerce of  the Empire, which brought them all to  Montreal.  At the dinner thf? first evening  Mayor Rumberger pr��sj<3ed, and. after  a short address, heartily welcoming the  visitors, introduced F. W. Bentley, a  prominent resident of Huddersfield  England, who spoke appreciatively of  the courtesies that had been extended  to the members of tlie party while in  the Boundary, and also of the vast resources in a mining way which they  had that dq.y seen in Phoenix. Mr.  Flumerfelt responded to this address,  and gave tl)e tflurisj^ s^me jdea of  what had been done by the Granby  Co. in the past both here and at Grand  Forks.  At the dinner the second evening,  in the unavoidnble absence of the  Mayor, Secretary WlllpOK presided,and  introduced several interesting speakers  after justice had been done to the  viands prepared in such splendid  shape by -Mine Host Mttcy. S. W.  Royse, representing the Manchester  Chamber of Commerce, and who i.s  said to be a close personal friend of  Joseph Chamberlain, was the first  speaker, being followed with interesting talks by George! Cawley, a consulting engineer of London, and Henry  Durler, of LutQri, England, all of  whom were only t��Q pleased to ex  press the pleasure they had had in  visiting tho great mines of the  Boundary,  Then Wm. Yolen Williams, the  superintendent of the Granby mines,  was called upon, and gave the visitors  one of the most instructive and interesting talks of the evening, leaving  them convinced that they had that  day seen one of the greatest copper  mines in the known world.  ��� Committee headquarters are ���> being  opened by the Phoenix Liberal Association in the  Hardy-McKenzie   block.  Earnest Mills, an employee at the  Sunset smelter at Boundary, Falls, was  nominated on the Socialist ticket at  Greenwood last week Friday.  W. A.' Galliher.M.

A joint mr-i-tingjof the, three candidates was held at Qrand Forks Tuesday evening, callecj by Mr. Clement,  the Liberal standard ._ bearer. Mr.  Fraser, the Conservative candidate,  and Mr, Riordan, ihe Socialist nominee, spoke, as we 1 -as Mr. Kingslej  for Mr. Riordan.  W.  Grand Forks, was  H.  P.

He visited Phoenix two or three  times this week, j and will be here  again next week.  ���   ;  ������ ._���,������_.-������ ..j..... .: ,  HELD JOINT  GATHERING  Brick Sub-Slatlon to be Erected, and Rifht of  Way Must be Cleared from Pboeilx to  Greenwood��� Ploaeer'i Information Coo*  firmed.  Liberals Opened Campaign in  Phoenix,  CLEMENT, FRASER |ND KERR SPOKt  All Three Parties Were Represented���Speakers Threshed Out the Issues of the Campaign.  The first real gun ' of the present  political campaign was fired in Phoenix  Wednesday evening, when the Liberals, who seem to be quite wideawake at last, held a meeting at Miners' Union hall, the other candidates  being invited to be present and address the electors. The invitation was  accepted by Mr. Fraser, the Conservative'candidate, and R. B. Kerr spoke  for Mr. Riordan, the Socialist candidate.  WjHiam Qelahay, president of the  Phoenix Liberal Association, occupied  the chair, and introduced the speakers  of the evening, the first, of whom was  William H. P. Clement, who is the  Liberal nominee.  Mr. Clement in an address of an  hour and.ten minutes went exhaustively into the principles of his party, and  told why he^believed the Liberals had  done a great deal for the laboring man  and his in,reres,t5: He showed also  wherein the Conservatives had failed  in their duties to the working people,  at least as he saw i<. He scored the  present government for its policy in  the coal lands matter, and appealed to  Socialists not to throw ijieir vote away,  as they certainly w(>,\\l(j if they voted for  the Socialist ticket, as it hud not the  remotest chance of winning in this  contest.  Mr. Delahay then, called on George  A. Fraser to speak, who came forward  and gave a speech about ten minutes  in length, telling the .audience exactly  where Mr. McBride stood upon the  coal lands and other questions.  Mr. Kerr was then introduced by  the chairman, and proved himself to  be an interesting speaker, frequently  getting applause from the Socialists  who were present, Mr. Kerr traced  the history of Socialism all over the  world, and asserted that it was the  only party that is now steadily growing  wherever it had gained a foothold, and  that it knew no creed, color or nationality. Mr. Kerr spoke entertainingly  for three-quarters of an hour, and  showed where he thought the old parties had failed in their duties to the  people, and where he thought they  would always fail.  Responding to the talks of his  op-  A couple of months ago the Pioneer  published the fact that the-high, tension power lines of the Cascade Water,  Power &'Light Co., were to be extended from Phoenix to Greenwood,  for the purpose of supplying electrical  energy to the Mother Lode smelter at  that place. An enterprising correspondent at Greenwood denied the  story. It now appears that the  Pioneer was correctly informed on the  main points, as in this issue will be  found an advertisement of the Cascade company, asking for tenders for  the clearing of the right of way from  Phoenix to Greenwood, and the supplying of the necessary poles, together  with the erection of a sub-station at  Greenwood.  Negotiations have, it is understood,  been'under way for some months between the British Columbia Copper  Co. and Manager Fowler of the Cascade concern, for the purpose of sup-  lying power to the smelter, and they  have evidently been carried.to a successful issue, from the above state of  affairs.  When the line is completed it wil  make two out of the three Boundary  smelters that are using the power generated at the falls of the Kettle river at  Cascade, some'27 friiies from-<Gr'eeh:  wood, as the lines will run. , It is probably only a question of time when  the Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls  will also be using the cheaper power  which can be obtained frcun Cascade.  The difference in tjqst i�� said, to be  something l|ke the difference, between  $30 and $iqq par horse power���a difference not to be overlooked if reduction plants are to be operated economically.  Want Postoffice at Denoro.  The work of clearing the townsite  at Denoro City, Summit camp, has  been started, and several improvements  are in progress. The Uu.ild.in.gs are  being mqyecj qut qf the zeme qf flying  ore frqm the s.h.Qfs. from the open quarries of the Oro Denoro mine. A petition for a postoffice is being sent in,  E. Bunting being recommended for  postmaster. As there are in the neighborhood of 100 persons resident in  that locality, a postoffice will doubtless  be granted. Berth, tl^e E;rn,rn,a and Oro  Denoro mines are increasing the number of employees., being now over 50,  and are steadily shipping ore, each  mine improving till the time with development.  Tuesday was the monthly payday at  the Snowshoe mine, when around  $7,500 was paid out in wages. This  mine now has over 90 employees:  The platform for loading cars, for  the Athelstan mine, on the Winnipeg  spur, has been completed, and Jackpot, as well as rich Athelstan ore is  being sent out. .,'  The third section of the ore bins  for the ore from the No. 2 tunnel of  the Granby mines is now being completed. This will admit of greater  output from that level.  Forty or more cars per day is the  regular shipping record of the Granby  mines at present. A number of men  have come in lately and have found  employment at these properties.  Work is continuing steadily now at  the Morrison mine, Deadwood camp,  where some 20 men are employed.and  ore is being hauled by wagon.' to the  railway for shipment to the Mother  .Lode smelter. -  Shipments of ore from the Betts and j  Hesperus mines to the Granby smelter  have been started by wagon. The ore  body has been proven to be 20 feet  wide without encountering the hanging wall.  The first installment of coke manufactured at the Coleman colleries of  the International Coal and, Coke Co.,  is said to have been received at the  Granby smelter, and that it gave; the  best of satisfaction.  Five more stamps are to be installed  at the Waterloo mine, Camp McKin  ney, making a battery of ten. Inside  of three months the mill has produced  $19,000 in gold; according to the report of Secretary Wolf. EUghteen men  are employed.  Owipg to the favorable character of  the ores of the Oro Denoro, under the  contract with the Sunset smelter, several car loads have been treated without cost to the Oro Denoro management. This is believed to be a unique  record for any Boundary mine. .  ;i  A.;C. Flurnerfelt left, this .week: for  Montreal, to attehalht>-':^ijiwr\;meef-'  ing of the Granby Consolidated,' to be  held in. that city on October 9th.  Some interesting announcements are  anticipated regarding the future operations of Boundary's premier mining  company.  WINNIPEG IS  NOW A SHIPPER  Sent  Out   Five   Cars  Week.  This  WENT TO BOUNDARY FALLS SMELTER  Now Has a Force of Fl Keen Men, Which Will  be lacrewed-Mucb Activity All Over  the Property.  Fpr the first time in over 16 months  the Winnipeg mine this week made  some ore shipments to the reduction  works. Five, or siv cars���some 175  tons���were shipped to the Sunset  smelter at Boundary Falls. This is  the initial shipment since work was resumed at this property a few weeks  ago, and Manager Plewman expects to  make more or less frequent shipments  from this on, although everything  about the mine is not yet in working  order.  The work of reconstruction and rehabilitation is still going steadily forward at the Winnipeg, Where there is  a force of fifteen men now on the payroll, which will doubtless be enlarged  as soon as the compressor is at work.  An ore loading platform has been  built, anew and larger gallows frame  put up, and the work of erecting the  new buildings has been started. The  machinery is being gotten in shape as  rapidly as,possible, and it will not be  long before the tonnage from,, the  Winnipeg, if Mr. Plewman's plans: are  carried out, will make a respectaple  showing on the list of the Boundary  shippers. In two or three, weeks the  annual meeting of the company will be  held at the mine, and by that time,  matters around the property will doubt-.,.;  less.be inbetteY.shape generally.   r " :'".'  'l'he Granby Co. has a small force  of men at work on the south side of  the Grey Eagle claim, opening up a  quarry, from which Contractor Fisher  will haul the ore to the head of tha  surface tramway, a distance of a quarter of a mile. Later a shaft may be  sunk at this point, and: the workings  connected with, the main workings of  the Granby mines, '...'.'  The long expected electric pump  for the; Phoenix Electric Lighting Co.,  has at- last been shipped by: the  Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrooke,  Quebec, and should arrive very shortly, when it will be promptly installed  at Marshall lake and put in commission for the city water system.  , The following are the new officers  of Greenwood Miners' Union No..22 :  President, Harry Parsons; vice-president, Alfred Lind; secretary, G.

Have you  decided which  ticket you  will vote  yet?   At last the politicians are all  busy.  The advancement of election day four  weeks has galvanized a lot of them into  ' unwonted activity, arid from now on  9"  THE OBSESVAT0RY  oratorical flights will  mon.  not  -.��nr��r��.m  The members at Ottawa the other  day raised quite a to-do when 'there  was a hitch in their getting-their indemnity. By this time, however, the  trouble has doubtless been bridged,  and each hard-working M. P. is in  possession of his quid pro quo.  Members of the Canadian Manu  facturers' Association, 160 strong, are  headed for British "Columbia, 7\6 take  a look at our resources. If they are  half as well pleased as were the mem  bers of the British party, they will indeed become enthusiasts about the  . future of this province.  It is believed by many that there is  a large silent vote in Grand Forks  electoral district, and that there will  be some decided surprises on the 3rd  of October when the ballots are  counted. Some of the "wise" ones  are claiming everything in sight, but  , the wisest are steadily sawing wood.  - , Recently in the east in an automobile  race, an innocent spectator was killed  by the tires on one 6f the racing ma  chines blowing up, while the rider got  off with a few scratches. Such is the  irony of fate. Out here in the moun  tains of British Columbia there is no  danger of such an end. Autos would  have a merry time getting around in  the Boundary.  With the Granby Consolidated turning out metallic copper at the rate of  more than a million pounds per month,  it begins to look as if there was an immense industry being built up here���  an industry that in a few years will  give employment to two or three men  .for every one now employed. The  croakers of a few years ago would be  non-plussed even now, were they still  residents of the Boundary.  Premier .McBride says that he isen:  tirely satisfied with the outlook for the  government being sustained at the.  forthcoming elections, and frankly  gives his reasons. The Liberals have  it all figured down to a fine point  -where they will secure at least "a majority in the next legislative assembly,  ���while the Socialists confidently expect  to secure four or five members. We  will make the prediction that the Con-  , servatives will secure a good working  majority.  This w-eek over 100 British tourists  have visited Phoenix, and like all visitors, have been amazed at the ore  bodies in our mines..   It is only too  true that the British pvfoiic has been  unfortunately "worked" by ajftssrupu  Bens promoters and others J�� r*@y4 i&  mines in British Columbia, and k 'is #  good tSjing for those who live in the  Mother Land to see with their own  <syes a few mining properties that have  been sucessfully .developed to the stage  where they can beg'uo to pay something  back to those who  have put up the  funds for their development.   It is the  ' kind of publicity that will be resultant  in good in the long run. 1  ! Things Talked op at  HOUB AND KLShWHKRK  When James Wardner was ill in  Milwaukee a few days ago, the energetic agent of the Associated Press  scented a good story. So he said Mr.  Wardner was at death's door, and sent  out a column or two every day about  it. As Mr. Wardner was and is one  of the best known men in the west, it  made good reading, and the local  press made widespread comment on it,  working in the details of his many  vicissitudes and ups and downs in  camp life.  as*  But Mr. Wardner himself says that  lie not only is not dead, but is far  from it, and to prove it will appear on  the secne in British Columbia shortly,  if he has not already done so by the  time these lines are in print. Mr.  Wardner should know whether he is  dead or not, and we will have to take  his word. for it for the present. It  seems that he may have a chance to  float many more mining schemes in  this province before he passes over the  river Styx.  m  A short time since the Pioneer  manager received a letter from a subscriber over 6,000 miles away, which  was made all the more acceptable by  the encloseure of a $5 bill to extend his  subscription. He also said some nice  things about the leading weekly of the  Boundary. Since then a number of  subscribers, living all the way from  3,000 to 100 miles from Phoenix have  done likewise. '  We merely mention these little matters in passing, as there may be others  who are only waiting for a good example. If so, there is no longer any  need of putting it off. They should  never"weary in well-doing.  MS  Quite recently several of the officials  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.,  from Toronto, have ��� made a visit to  the company's properties at Fernie,  and made optimistic reports of the  outlook there. We are pleased to  hear it, as the gentleman should  know..what they are talking about.  But some of the .things that G. G. S.  Lindsay,- K,.C;, one of,the directors,  is credited by nearly-.all the "coast  papers with saying, would have been  left better unsaid���at' least from the  company's point of view.  ���n  Referring to the coke shipments,  Mr. Lindsay stated that the shipments  to the Granby smelter, among others,  had been stopped because they were  "overstocked," This was only half  the truth, as the reason the Gianby  shipments were ordered discontinued  for a few days was ,that the smelter  was blown 1 out for a few days. . But  this is no large matter,-if the coal  company will now keep up the supply,  which it appear* they will likely be  able to do,  ���St  In referring to the quality ofthe  coal being opened up by the Inter  national Coal and Coke Co., however,  Mr. Lindsay made some remarks that  will do him no good. Here is what  he is reported to have said, verbatim:  ".We are glad to find the Granby  people entering the field," - said Mr.  Lindsay. "After five years of work  and the expenditure, of an enormous  amount of money, the Crow's Nest  Pass''Coal Company has got coke  down io as low a figure as it can be  produced *t' �� profit, even'.on a very  extensive scate- 1'k& Blairmore-district has, uwUHtbte&ly, &rge fields of  coal, some of whfefe Jisyrfcgen .tested  and abandoned, 'and I my mU8k  doubt if there is any scam of coal in  that district that will produce godd  coke.  "I have seen samples of coke, made  from coal taken from. the vein updn*  which the Granby people are-working,  arid it is very high in .ash. It may be  that they wilL, op pther seams, obtain  'a-coal which 'ifiU fflgtke gobd'eoke,  ���but"-if they do, it wilj jbflfceoniy ih-  >taace' in .that district where $u��fr ,coal  lias been .obtained, .and } wou^d ��t>t  be willing U> .believe that such cpal  exists until I agg |&e .coke.."  In other words, ttteQtmty People,  who are largely interested m tf}�� JaWr-  national, with a successful rsmrd tor  mining behind them, do not knoV  what they aTe about, according to the  learned Mr. Lindsay, but are wo'ilciug  a seam of coal that is of-little-use for  coking purposes. Further, that the  noted Pennyslvania expert who recently  ���jisited and reported on the property,  di$ flojt know what he was saying.  ����� /  Another tiring. The Michel collieries, operated by Mf,^id^ay's company, are but a few miles from.^e  town of Cole'mah, where the Internet,  ional property is located. Did ,tfte  maker df the universe cut off tlie beils  of poking coal at the point where the  Crow's Nest property ends? It would  seem so from what the celebrated solicitor from Toronto asserts.  ���M  It might be well for Robert JalTray  or some other official of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co., to have Mr. Lindsay submit his interviews before they  are given out. It may save them from  some embarrasing explanations in the  future, when the International becomes a competitor of some moment  to them in the coke market.

C MINING  The Ivanhoe in theSloacn is increas  ing its force at the mine and mill,  employing 65 men* '  Slocan mineowners complain bitterly  of the combine recently effected among  the sawmills, whereby the price of  rough lumber has been increased fifty  per cent. They term it a regular holdup-  J. J. Young of Calgary, and Cochrane Brothers, of McLeod, Alberta,  have paid Eric Larson $35,000 cash for  a claim lying between what is known  as tha Swede group and the celebrated  Lucky Jack group in Poplar creek.  At Rossland the Kootenay mine  has resumed development with 20  men.  AVork is being pushed in the iron  claims at Crawford Bay on Kootenay  lake. . ;''���.        ��� ������  '.':..    ���    ,  The LeRoi smelter at Northport is  installing self feeders for the furnaces  similar to those in use at the Granby  smelter,  For the month ;of August the Tyee  smelter treated;,^,787 tons of ore, ah  average of 155 tons daily, the value,  less refining charges, being $68,885.  The Rambler-Cariboo, in the Slocan, will run a tunnel 4,600 feet long,  which will give a depih of ,1,400 feet  on the rich ore body of that property.  The War Eagle-Centre Star concentrator is to be constructed at once. It  will be built by the Rossland Power  company, a subsidiary concern, and  will be located three quarters of a mile  north of the Trail smelter.  The production of Rossland camp  last week was close to 9000 tons, as  follows: LeRoi, s��ao; Centre Star  1710; War Eagle, 1380; LeRoi No. 2,  220] Jumbo, 330; Spitzee, 60; I, X. L.  (milled), 50; total for the week, 89 70;  year to date, 267,827.  A placer mining rush is the latest  from Poplar Creek.  Enormous coal fields have been discovered upon Peace River.  Alluvial mining on Thibert creek,  Cassiar, is prospering. One property has yielded 800 ounces in 20 days.  The greatest excitement prevailed  in Trout Lake last week, caused by  the discovery of free gold in large  quantities on the Winslow claim, five  miles from Trout Lake.  WHAT 3DI7QR�� SAY  Shoulp Bs KBPT-/The Conservatives will never consent to the C.P. R.  securing the disputed land grants in  East Kootenay, believing that they  should be kept foi the people,���Slocan  Drill.  Fellow Electors:  At the request ot the Liberal Association of this riding I have consented  to contest the coming election in the  Liberal interest. While I personally regret that the honor of carry ing the Liberal  standard to victory has not fallen to  other and stronger hands than mine, it  is with no misgiving as to the result  that I enter on the campaign. I am  in this battle to win, if by stienuous,'  straight-forward fighting any political  battle can be won. I believe it can.  What is needed is united effort on the  part of Liberals and all others who  desire to see reform in the government  of this province.  The condition" of the province has  become intolerable. Blessed by Providence with vast, stores of 'wealth in  mines, forests, agricultural lands and  fisheries, British Columbia lias had its  very good turned to evil' by a loilg  series ol personal, sectional clique  governments' of men who have exploited the people's property for pi i  vate gain. We have u population ol  177,000���men, women ami chilutt'ii,  Indians and Orientals���and a public  debt of 56.300,000, representing $35  per head, or $175 at least, for each  adult man in the 'province. The avei-  age cost of government 111 the other  provinces ot Canada is about $2 pei  liead per annuinjiwith us it is seven  times greater, or $14.25 per head. In  salaries alone we pay more than $2 a  head, or over $370,000 a year,p  'Every year we expend more than our  income. Ladt year we went further  into debt to the'tune of $75.3,000; and  Mr. Cartei-Cottoii, a,former Conservative finance minister, says that if the  accounts of the last tour years were  properly'investigated it will be found  th.it in that shoit]tinie we'have'spent.  $5,000,000 more! than bur revenue  from all sources, : ,.;'.'  The present premier was a member  of the assembly during those four years  and he has never protested against the  prodigal scale of expenditure. On the  contrary the very assets from which a  fund might be derived to meet the cost  of government have been wasted. As  a minister of the Crown, Mr, Mchride  was a party to the prders-in-council  granting large areas of valuable coal  and petroleum lands in Southeast  Kootenay to the C. P. R.���a fraud  upon the legislature, which was prevented, not by Mr. McBiide, but by  the watchful zeal of a Liberal member.  The excuse given by Mr. McKride for  his official act in agreeing to the,grants  shows that he is utterly unworthy to he  trusted with the care of the people's  property.    He'took the word ot a col  league that it was all right. ��� What  guatantee have we that another colleague will not .again hypnotize Mr.  McBride into giving away further tracts  of the public domain?      ���.'* ���������'���'.,  Hut when bona fide locators comply  with the law of the province, stake  coal lands according to law, and tender the price fixed by law; Mr./McBride ielu-.es to grant the licences  which the law says shall be granted to  those who,have followed the requirements nt' tlie AcfMIe prefers to keep'  the question dangling for party advantage,���the last refuge"bf a Weak politician. Or is that he still hopes to  "deliver the goods" to the'C. P.R.?  By a piece of trickery quite in keeping with ihe traditions ol the political  gamesters with whom he has been so  lone, and still is associated, the honorable premier has cut short the campaign. It will be almost impossible for me to have the privilege  of seeing you all personally in the  three, weeks, left before polliim day,  Kor this reason I publish this open  letter in order ihat you may know;  whi.re 1 stand on the issues before > ou.  It is now )our turn to take peisonal  part in the government of your province. Act in the way you wanuyoui  representatives in parliament to act.  Vote with a single eye to the best interests of our common country. As  the candidate of the Liberal party, I  respectfully ask your votes and your  influei.ee to elect me because I believe  that neither at the hands oi"' the Mc  Bride government, nor at t(ie hands of  the 'theprixing socialists will any practical, business-like improvement upon  the past misdoings take place.  The Liberals have had no opportunity to show their mettle in the political arena of this province. But the  administration ol' public affairs by a  Liberal government at Ottawa since  1896, is a striking example of what;  Liberalism in action means. National  unity from ocean to ocean; a loyalty  to British connection evidenced in  deed instead of mere lip-loyalty; a  system ot taxation equal in incidence  and in protection to home industry instead of a system of government aid to  lavored manufacturers: a determined  stand against the Oriental deluge of  low-standard civilization; aii honest effort to bring capital and labor into  harmonious working' for the- good, df  all; energetic work toward peopling  thep west and toward providing adequate transport facilities; all these and  whatever else tends to the betterment  of the Canadian people are the nlanks  of the Liberal plattorm in the federal  field, l'he same bioad ideas dominate  the Liberals of British Columbia.  I am in hearty accord with the platform and manifesto of the Liberal party in the province. When elected, 1  shall endeavor to put the principles  set forth in them into practice. I shall  particularly support the following principles as of immediate interest to  this  liding.  1. The peoples' property whether  land, timber, minerals or the fisheries  should be administered tor the benefit  of the whole people with a view to les  sening ihe:huge burden of debt and  taxation' now resting on us. Only  those who iu good faith will utilize our  public . pro'peity, in forwarding setile-  nient and developing our natural in-  dustriesshould beallowed to ; acquire  an interest in any part of the public  domain.  2. The tinning laws should be  amended and simplified after a caitkii  enquiry through a competent commission. Then tinkering with them  should cease. In the developmeni  stage there should be no taxation oi  miners or mining property. Developed mines should bear their sharebi the  public burdens in pioportioii to the  net output.  3. ' No further aid in land or money  should,.be given by this province to  transcontinental, railway projects. Kiil-  lest liberty should be given to the V.,  V. &'K. railway 'company to complete  the constiuclion ol their line. Al��  though .1 was at one tune professionally  employed against that company,and did  my duty; 1 hope, to my clients, 1 am  ready to-support any action whiclr'may  be deemed necessaiy lo place beyond  any doubt the right', ot the V., V*. &  E. to build their contemplated line  through tu.the Pacific, coast. In reference: to the North and-Soutli lines  thiough'the valleys of British Coluin  bia 1 should supixirt noverhment construction'''with the idea of leasing completed lines as leeders to' the through  lineson such terms as will keep, the  province iu control of .passenger*, and  freight rates and .secure a rental sulr  ficient to pay tha. interest oh the cost  of construction.  ���i 4. ;The province should set the  example of obedience to its own laws.  Il under our statutes individuals'have  acquired rights in the public domain,  such rights should be at once transferred to them. ;  ���'-������The course of the ���government- in  reference to the coal lands of East  Kootenay shows that in their opinion  we are governed not by lawj but by  their whim as influenced by the count  ot volers'iiose,!*,  I have the honor to be your most  obedient servant,  WILL1AJJ!

Entitled lo Much Credit.  Mr. Plewman is himself one ofthe  largest shareholders, if not the largest  shareholder in tbi Winnipeg, which  niUurully accounts 'for the zeal he lias  shown in the matter. Nevertheless,  he is undoubtedly! entitled to much  credit for preserverance and untiring  energy, and it is therefore shareholders  may well afford to: demonstrate their  appreciation of his Efforts by subscribing the relatively small sum required  to give the undertaking another chance  I  at what would appear to be a particularly opportune moment. ��� Victoria  Colonist. j  For years the "Slater Shoe" has been advertised as the shoe of comfort���of foot ease.

That this convention reafiBr_8 the  policy of the party in matters of provincial roads and trails; tlie ownership and  control of railways and the development  of tbe agricultural resources of the province as laid down in the platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as follows:  . "To actively aid in the construction of  trails throughout the undeveloped,' portions of the province and the building of  provincial trunk roads of ��� public fleces-  8ltV.  r,To adopt tlie' principles of government ownership of railways in so far as  the circumstances of the province, will  admit, and the adoption of the principle  that no bonus should be granted to any  railway company which does not'give  the government of the province control  of rates over lines bonused, together  with the option of purchase.  "To actively assist by state aid in the  development of the agricultural resouces  of the province.  2. That in the meantime and untjl  the railway policy above set forth can  be accoinpjfished, a. genera! railway act  be passed, giving freedom to construct  railways under certain approved regulations, analogous to the system that Jias  resulted in such extensive railway construction in the United States, with so  much advantage to trade and commerce.  3. That to encourage the mining industry, the taxation of metalliferous  mines should be on. the basis of a percentage on the net profits. f  4. That the government ownership  of telephone systems should,be brought  about as a first step in the acquisition  of public utilities. .--..,. ,-,  5. That a portion of every coal area  hereafter to ba disposed of should be reserved from sale or lease, so that state-  owned mines may be easily acceeHible, if  their operation becomes necessary or advisable.  6.
