AT the-uext Provincial election there will be a grand
opportunity for the Liberal-Conservative party, tt is sure of itself, of iu'principles, and ot the
ability o'f its leading men. But
it requires loyal service, hard
work, and the suppression of
personal ambition among its adherents to make sine ol victoi'y.

It is a matter of great satisfaction to see tlie Conservatives
of Cranbrook quietly and harmoniously gathering together
under one common banner.
There is no dis&eusion or discord,
and all are detenu'mod to work

per? will go.    Thje element that
approaches with a view to parting the government from the
few assets left, will pretty nearly
have to show up something for
value received to get what they
want. It makes a. decent citizen's blood boil to think over
what suckers the former provincial legislators were, Magnificent assets wore thrown away
to satisfy the greed of certain
gratters. Now this is all changed.
With a business-like administration .,',ve hope to see ourselves
eventually out of tho,hole. All

Tw Business Men:  Mr. Editor:���I would like to  nay something of my wishea this  time. I wish to give a lecture  to the business men of Cranbrook. I wish to speak first of  hotel proprietors., In the country where 1 came from they have  often a bad name, aiid I don't  think they are to blame. I think  that the men who 'granted them  licenses are the men at fault, by  choosing ,men who are neither  bodily or meutally fit, as I am  sure that it takes the best stock  of the business family to be a fit  and projier ' hotel.- proprietor.  They should be strong * bodily  and mentally.  -1 would like to speak to the  businessmen in general. Those  who will and will not make good  business meu. The kind' of > a  man a school-master .should ,He,  then" lawyers and .-doctors,  preachers and printers, and who  should and should uot marry.  I am willing to decide for lov*,  ers, "whether^ they are adapted  for one another or not. I htive  been consulted on the subject av  great many times, and always  with the best of success.  " Next week I will speak of the  many evils that tempt arid ruin  our young people, and why there  are so many failures in marriages.  The above mentioned lecture  I will give as soon as I have recovered from my, recent illness.
