Premier MeBride Addresses a Large
Audience at Cranbrook.
lion. Richard McBride. premier of this province, addressed
a large number of the citizens of
Cr.-inbroolc iu Wentworth hall on
Monday evening.
It wa.s a matter of great satisfaction to' the Cranbrook Conservative Association to bo able
to say that the largest political
affair ever hold in Southeast
Kootenay, was held 011 Monday
evening in Wentworth hall. A
largo number who attended tho
meeting wore compelled to stand,
,and e'vory available place i.i lhe
luill was tilled.
James D. McBride, president
of the Cranbrook Conservative
Association, occupied the chair,
and in short and pithy speeches',
introduced the speakers. >*'
His Worship Mayor Rogers
was tii-st. called, and in referring
to the visit of the premier to
Cranbrook, paid a praiseworthy
tribute to Mr. McBride and his
Thomas Gavin was then introduced and was received with enthusiasm He dealt briefly wilh

the credit abroad, and  for a per

brought   the   country   almost  to
the  vevffc of, ruination     I ivn.s
charged with the   responsibility j
of  forming a government, and  I
formed   one  on   party  lines and
appealed   to   the   country,   and
while   I  got,  a   majority of  the
members elected to the house to
support  ihe' cause   for   which, I
stood, at the same   liino particu

this to those of you who are Liberals aud  wish lo bo' fair-minded
and wish   1,0  judge   us   fairly, if
two mon 1 lis is  not  long enough
for a provincial   election to take-
place, in what, should   be tho period tor tho election'for the parliament   at    Ottawa,    the   poim
I'roni   where   the   nation is governed and   where   problems of a
in'oai    national    character    arc
threshed    out.    Tho    Dominion
election   only    took   six   weeks
from the lime  of  the lirst, iuser-
there   was   grave    fear   that   J   lion in the Canada Gazette.   You
would not be' able to eavvy on
the affairs of the province. I
have been able to carry them on
and so far have proved that the
government,, is in a most creditable posit ioii. I have one thing
to regret,.that is. that the electors of Cranbrook did not send
me a supporter. From' the intelligence that was to lie found
on all hands bore,' aud from the
tremendous interest taken by the
people of this riding in°public
affairs, I had every hope that
Mr. Caven would be elected, but,
I found .that my friend had been
beaten and that Dr. King was to
Southeast   Kootenay   since   the  bo your representative  for some
McBride government have been
in power, that the legislative,
acts of the present government,
have been fair, practical and
beneficial to the whole province.
The next speaker was the premier, the Hon. Richard McBride,
w her in part, said:
.What you have hoard from Mr.
Cavin, the mayor and   the chairman  would  lead you to expect
great things from mc tonight.   I
want at .once   to  warn   you of a
groat   disappointment.    The ocv
casion is not ono for the^ making
of any   great announcement.    I
may say that/ in passing through
Cranbrook,, I  thought it  might
servo mo a good  purpose   lo become intimate with the people of
this neighborhood.    I havo been
privileged with   the hospitality
of this town   in  days  gone by,
but  this   is   the  first occasion 1
have had of addressing a public
meeting  among you.    The first
items   to   deal   with   are   some
issues   that are  most important
at the  present  time.    We have
no   election   on  at   the   present
moment;   the  hustings from the
Rockies   to   the   Pacific do not
ring with the  voice of  the cam
paigner.    The present time is a'
period   of  rest,   whon    business
seems   to   bo   talcing   ou its old
wont and custom,  whon there is
a bettor feeling from ono end of
' the   country   to  the   other,  and
when the people instead of  giving up a groat part, of their time
to discussing   public:  issues are.
content   to  rest  tho  business of
the   country   with   the   government of   the  day.    It, is a great
.blessing, ladies  and   gentlemen,
at Christinas lime that I am able
to   come   here   to   this   city  of
Cranbrook'  and  make this statement wilh some  degree of certainty.    J   may    have,   perhaps,
been   responsible    in    part   for
times of unrest that  havo  characterized   the   public   affairs  of
this country,   but  events   have
proved it justification   for what I
then did.
Now I might take tho time
when McKonzie & Mann wished
to introduce a bill which would
give them a great section of land
and a great amount of, money.
It is understood what this would
amount to. Taking tlie statistics
generally we found it ran into a
great, many millions of money.
The bill occupied the session of
Athe local house, for a period of
nearly live and a half months,
when it was thrown out for the
good reason that it was the.duty
of the opposition to save a certain part of tho country for the
people of the country, and not-to
hand   it   over to   railway   land
. 1: .        -;
grabbers.' .There jwas then the
general election and a change of
govornmont.    Tho Conservative
time to come..Tho doctor is a personal friend of  mine and a very
charming  follow.     What his fitness  for  parliamentary life isl
cannot  say,   but  while 1 am lhe
lirst to pay a tribute to'his many
excellent qualities, T do feel that
had   Mr.   Cavcn   been   .returned
the member  for   thjs riding you
would   have been better served
This i.s said*in no spirit of malice
and   with   no  attempt to do Dr.
King  an   injury.    The doctor is
not hero tonight,     f dp not catch
h'is sparkling eye as f should had
he   been    here."   However,    Mr.
Cavcn has   not  been   made your
member     aud    consequently    I
think  you   have  been   denied  a
a thoroughly  sound "man,  and!
am very pleased, ladies and gentlemen, tonight to   be   sitting on
the same  platform with the man
who was  the  standard-bearer ol
our   party   two  nnd a half years
ago.    May   ho make a bolter job
of it, next time.    T lool quite satisfied that  had, fii,y friends'been
able to  come  here 10 assist him
Mr. Caven would have been elected.
One of the wort charges made
against us was  that the election
of lflOo was brought on at an inopportune time.    If  you look at
the records you will   see that we
gave something like two months
notice  before  tho  election took
place.    We   were   compelled  to
shorten tho period originally selected owing' lo   the pressure of
banking institutions.    That was
a matter  with   which  T' had   no
control.    When     1     was   called
upon to form   a government the
money standing to our credit was
practically nil.    You will remember of  the  balances we were* accustomed to hear of  standing to
the credit, of   the Jlunsinuir gov
eminent, and when 1   undertook
the responsibility   of   forming a
cabinet 1 thought we would meet
a groat   big  credit balance, and
one of  the   first  things T should
be     privileged     10     do   would
be     10    spend    some    of    tins
big balance  and  scatter   money
in    plenty     for     developments
throughout   the.   province,   for
bridges,-   -railroads,    etc.      But,
what did   we. find—rthe. treasury.
absolutely empty   and the bankers knockingat  the   door,   lhat
unless we took  drastic steps the
very   credit    of, the     province
vyould   be   refused   and   the. lair
name  of ■ British''Columbia dishonored in the eyes of the world.
To bring  off  the  elections   was
fhe  one  plan   to   follow,' and I
brought them.off asqniokiy as I
could.    I 'shortened' the   period
one month,   gave the people two
months, iii -which    to .make up
their minds.-    The'.Liberals have
.harped on that string ever since,
and'said that hud MoBrido given
did   not  hoar   the Conservative
parly squeal, but  did   their best
to meet, the .unfortunate state ot
affairs.    The  great   issue in the
western   section   was the Grand
Trunk Pacific.    In  the   Lillooer
section we are   told "that,  if you
would only volo for Laurier ^ ou
would hear the steam shovel inside  of   six' months.    Well, the
majority of  people  did vole'I'or
Laurier,  but' we   have   not   yet
heard the steam   shovel and not
a spade of earth has been turned
In this section  of  the country I
had the privilogo of  assisting in
the  campaign   with   Mr    Mackintosh, and also in some sections
where' Mr.    Oulliher   and   Mr.
Ross were speaking, and T found
that the great  issue in this part
was the lumber industry and the
protection we were going to gel
from   tho  Liberals,   and    I   was
told    most   distinctly   lhat   tho
Grand   Trunk   Pacific 'Railway
was really a-minor  matter,   that
if   yon   voted .for Gnlliher  aiid
Ross your saw   mills would   be
operating from  one end of  the
conn t ry to the otherl    They were
elected,   but   tor   protection   of
lumber you have to sit and wait.
VVoll, ladies and gentlemen, as
1 told you,* on,coming into office
1 had a very  desperate financial
problem to solve.    Tho credit of
tho country   was, terrible, aud  I
brought off the elections, and-on
being returned  was  obliged call
an early  session   of  tho legislature and we, found   that instead
of enjoying  something  like tho,
Diuismuir majorities,  ouis was
a.   vevy precarious" ono.   aud instead . of    being   privileged   to
m<ike appropriations like olir predecessors   for     public    works,
bridges,   frails,   ct2 ,   we had to
impose    fresh     taxes.    Well,   a
good deal of criticism was shown,
but there was   no   time to spare
and, as a  matter 'of   fact   bills
were passed  and   made   law be
fore the end of  the year.    Now,
in what direction did I  go to secure   this   additional   taxation?
Ladies and gentlemen, .some of
my Liberal critics have asserted
lhat I went in   the  wrong direction to   raise   this   money,   and
that i raised   it  from   those who
could ill-afford lo pay   it,,  but lot
tne  dispose of   this   from   your
minds at once.    The most prominent   provision    in   those  bills
dealt wilh   taxation   of  the railway companies and   the big corporations  ot   British   Columbia,
aud   resulted   in   increasing  Ihe
taxes   to   the  extent of  51)0 per
cent.    1 could point   to  one cor-
loratiou formerly   paying about
§liH.(XH) or  * 19,000   to   tho treasury,  who  is  now   paying aoout
$100.0110, and   is  doinsr   business
today.     I was content, that I had
taxed the field that was fruitful:
I  also ■;taxed   the   sawmills.   ■!
might,  have gone   in   the direction of the wholesale and-'.retail
merchants;   but   the  scheme lo
which   I   have   referred  to   for
raising the taxes of the country
was  directed   against   .these big
corporations 'which    up   lo   the
lime I took tho  responsibility of I
government   had     substantially
escaped- contribution.
A Ladies  and   gentlemen,  .1.   believe   that   in   what, we  did  wo
■were doing Our plain duty to the
lax-bearers.    Of  course the. opposition would havo done better.
Now, I say that-if you look careful I v   ov'ir   that   assessment act
and lhe amendments you tniiM
agree with me that the scheme
was, well founded and lhal. the
taxes which had 10 be imposed
and as a result of it.-, enactment
it did not fail heavily on the industrious section and did nut affect the business equilibrium of
the country. 1 say'also, ladies
and gentlemen, that consistently
with fhe increase in taxation it
was up to us to bring about some
reform   in   lhe  civil  services of
u f
the country, the department, of
public works, etc. In the department of public works 1 have
not been able to give this section
or anyjother the roads, bridges,
etc., lhat were yours as a matter
of right. It was not because!
did not want to'do it, but because
the money was not in the treasury. But while we are practicing, every economy consistent
with our scheme of taxation we
have licit boon able to have public worlcs constructed and to
give that attention to public affairs so far*as the works department, is concerned lhat was properly exjiecled from us.    ,
But. ladies and gentlemen, not,
only do I find that I must'in fairness tot the pt.-ople of British
Columbia cut down , civil" expenses iind scrutinize the public
works '"department to see, that,
not, a dollar is spent for which
good value is not received, but-
as well did T'find that, in the
school '.system certain economies
alsor had -to bo practiced .from
