MEETING   AT   WARDNER.
The Second Battle in the Campaign
Results in Signal Defeat to Col.
Baker—The Meeting Well Attended and Enthusiasm for Mr.
Baillie Intense.
On Monday evening last Col.
H.aker held his second political
meeting at Wardner, in the large
<iining-i'oom of the Wardner
Hotel. The meeting was well
attended by the citizens of Wardner and the people of the surrounding country, a number
even having gone from Fort
Steele to hear the two speakers.
About nine o'clock the meeting
was called to order by Mr. Gurd,
who acted as chairman, and Col.
Baker was called upon to address the audience. In speaking, Col. Baker followed precisely the same linos us he did in his
previous address al Port Steele,
dividing liis speech into two
parts in which he endeavored to
give an account of himself—first,
as a Minister of the Crown, und
second, as a representative of
East Kooteniiy. The large audience listened witli much amusement to the Colonel's futile attempts to prove that he and his
Governmenl had been following
a "statesmanlike policy" during
their regime at Victoria, He
tried once more, as he had done
at Fort Steele, to sow the seeds
of discord and dissension in the
Opposition ranks by referring
incorrectly to the political convention held at Fort Steele, but
the audience could not listen
possibly to the misstatements he
made with regard t'o tliat meeting, and there were cries of dissent from all parts of the room.
It must be said, und in all justice
to Col. Baker, that his speech
was very, very weak for a man
who has been in the political
arena as long as he has, and the
manner in whioh lu left himself
open to attack was not lost upon
his opponent, Mr. Baillie, who
perfectly riddled his position
from first to last, eliciting much
laughter and applause from his
interested audience.
After Col. Baker's lengthy
speech, Mr. Gurd called upon
the Opposition candidate, Mr.
liaillie, who opened his address
with a reply to the Colonel's
statements regarding the convention held ut Fort Steele. He
denied emphatically everything
the Colonel hud said, pointing
oul that it was not a convention
of the Port Sleele electors only,
but one from nll%purls of the district, and asserting in the most
emphatic manner that tliere was
ii secret ballot. In defence of
the declaration signed there lie
very rightly argued that it was
an Opposition convention, ant
that as no one but Opposition
members had a right to be there,
no injustice had been done to
any person, and Government
supporters laid justly been restrained from taking any part in
its proceedings. This Hat denial
of the Colonel's misstatements
created much enthusiasm among
those present.
Mr. Baillie next replied to a
scurrilous attack of the Wardner
International upon himself, and
placed the editor of that paper
in a most unenviable and ridiculous position, lie perfectly
agreed with the Internationals
opinion of Mr. Win. Ross, of
Fort. Steele, speaking in high
terms of that gentleman's ability, adding thai Mr, Ross had
promised him his support in the
coming election. (Great applause.)
Mr, Baillie then went on with
his speech proper, in which he
dealt first with his stand regarding tlie position of tho employees
on the Crow's Nest Railway. He
explained briefly how he had
telegraphed Mr. Blair last fall
demanding an investigation of
tlie troubles on the Crow's Nest
Railway, and Mr. JBlair's answer
that should the commission report favorably of the treatment
of tlie employees that he (Mr.
Baillie) would be placed in a
most unenviable position, having
taken a great responsibility upon himself. He then produced a
copy of a Winnipeg paper which
contained an official report of
the result of the C. N. R. commission, whicli coincided exactly
with his statements last fall with
regard to the ill-treatment of the
employees of that road, and suggesting the same remedies as he
himself had then suggested. (Applause.)
In concluding this part of his
speech he said that his opponents had endeavored to make
capital of the enmity he had
aroused by the stand he had
taken re. the 0 N, R., but that
it hnd been done by him in the
interests of the laborers on that
line and thut he would not fear
lhe result,
He then spoke in scathing
terms of Col. Baker's abuse of
the confidence placed in him by
the people in diverting the
Crow's Nest coal lands to private
ownership, thereby robbing the
people of their birthright. He
ridiculed tlie action of the Kootenay Valleys Company in attempting to join the waters of
the Columbia and Kootenay
rivers; at the same time censuring a government that would
give away so much of the people's land without even a saving
eluuse that such lands shoujd, in
case of the failure of llie scheme,
revert to the people, and pointing out thut in return for the
lands which had been given to
this company we now havo a dry
aud useless ditch at Canal Flats.
A' voici from the audience—
'■How did the Gwendoline get
through from the Columbia to
the Kootenay if that is the
case'*'"
Mr. Baillie —"I should have
stale 1 that in return for this
enormous grant of land we also
have tlie satisfaction of knowing
tliat one bout wus dragged
through this ditch." (Laughter.)
Proceeding with his speech,
Mr. Baillie censured Ihe Government severely for their action in
giving so much of the Cassiar
mineral lands lo a railway corporation, adding that no prospector would care to prospect in
a country where he had to give
one-half of everything he might
find to a ruilwuy company, and
where he wus confronted on
every hand by the restrictions
Imposed by such a corporation.
(Cries of hear, hear.)
Col. Baker—''But prospectors
are applying to this Cassiar
Railway Company in large numbers to go in there."
Mr. Baillie—"You have now
admitted tlie very point which I
have been trying to ompathsizo,
namely, thai a man in this country is so overrun with restrictions that lie must at every turn
consult some company or corporation before he can move."
(Hear, hoar.)
The. Yukon Railwuy Bill wus
next discussed by Mi', liaillie,
who showed that Col. Baker had
again been neglecting the interests of liis constituency when lie
supported such a bill, which lind
tho elToct of keeping up the
Klondyke excitement at the expense of tho development of the
Kootenays-and that, too, in a
country which lies wholly with
out the bounds of our Province
He explained that the Government liad made this grant in order to please the merchants of
the Coast cities, who have a
larger representation in the
House than tlie Kootenays and
whose support means everything to them (the Government).
Coming next to the question of
Chinese labor, Mr. Baillie ridiculed Col, Baker's impossible
position that an international
agreement which exists between
Great Britain and China would
prevent any attempts ou tlie part
of the British Columbia Government to exclude the Chinese, and
asked the Colonel how he would
explain away the fact that New
Zealand had some few years ago
passed a law excluding the
Chinese—a law which has proven
most effective in accomplishing
its object.
Mr. Baillie. after showing from
the records of the House that
Col. Baker had repeatedly voted
against tlie increase of the tax
upon Chinamen entering the
country from SHO to $500, and
even to $100, wanted to know
what difference it would make to
international agreements if this
tax were increased, the principle, in any case, being precisely
the same.
Mr. Ilaillie concluded his able
address by saying that he had always stood in support of the
laboring man and that he would
always do so whether elected as
their representative to Parliament or uot; that it was his life's
work, and adding that if they
considered him capable and
worthy of such a trust that he
would expect Ihem to support
hiiil at the polls. (Prolonged
cheering.)
Col. Baker then replied shortly, and tlie meeting broke up
with cheering for Mr. Gurd, the
chairman, Mr. Baillie and Col.
Baker.	
WHAT COL. BAKER TAKES.
As His Share of Spoliation in This
District.
Tho Crow's Nest Coal lands
which have gone, by manipulation of the B. C. Southern
Charter sale, into the hands of
Col. Baker and his friends, en-
huuee an area of 144 square miles
of coal measures. Prof. Selwyn,
Dominion Geologist, estimates
tliat these lands contain an average of 4H,(iii0,ii(Hl tons of coal to
the square mile. This amounts
to 6,912,000,000 tons of coal. It
is an amount so largo tliat the
brain of man is incapable of comprehending it.
At. u profit of one cent n ton it
would produce #69,120,000,
Col. Baker speaks of this us
an "inconsiderable trifle" that
was thrown in witli a railway
Charter to him and his friends.
The truth is that these coal
lunds, properly administered in
the interests of the people, would
have provided sufficient annual
revenue to have rendered taxation in this Province unnecessary for many years.
OUR   FIRST   COURT.
Judgo   Forin  Will  Hold  a  Sitting
Hero on Monday.
On the stage from (lolden on
Thursday night arrived Judge
Form, wlio is to hold court here.
It will most likely be tho only
time tliat a Judge will have lo
travel by stage to come lo Fort
Steele, as the next sitting will
seethe railway iu here. Court
can then be held much oftener.
Judge Porta resides at Nelson,
where lie is kept more than busy
witli chamber and court work.
As an instance of the work the
Kootenays give him, tliere were
l.toii writs issued by him last
year, which is almost as many as
the rest of the county court
judges in the Province issue.
TlieLairer
Gets the
The increase in the
wages to the laborers
on the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway from $1.50 a
day to $2 or possibly
$2.SO a day, which is
required by the Crow's
Nest Commission of Enquiry, is the direct result of the exertions
of Wm. Baillie, through
this paper.
The Crow's Nest Kailway Commission puts
the fair wage of laborers at $2 or $2.50. It
was $1.50 last fall. The
Commission was demanded and obtained by
Wm. Baillie.

PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS.
^o    the     Electors
Kootenay:
GenI'lemen;
At the request of a large number of electors friendly to the
cause of good government in this
Province, I consented to be
a candidate at the Opposition
Convention held in the Opera
House at Fort Sleele on June
2nd, and was tliere selected us
the Opposition Candidate in this
district.
I therefore take this method of
briefly stating the grounds on
which I oppose the present Government, und the public policy
which I think ought to be pursued in this Province.
Monopoly of the Land.
(I). During a period of years
past the Government has been
guilty of parcelling out to monopolies huge sections of tlie pubic lands, in lhis district alone
live-sixths of the available agricultural  land  has  been  given
Of     South     East
inference is this, that he is at
the berk and call of lhe monop-
alists who profit hv cheap labor.
Hon. G, B, Martin, a member
of the Government in defence of
the Chinese, said recently in thi'
Legislature:
'*! huve Inul men from Ontario
on  my  ranch,  and  1 gol l hem
very cheap, but the best man 1
ever had on my ranch was a
Chinaman, who worked for $16
per month."
Crow's Nost Coal Lands Deal.
There are 114 square miles of
coal lauds in the Crow's Xest
country. According to Prof.
Selwyn's official report to the
Dominion Government, each
square mile of this land contains
49,952,000 ions of coal. This
wealth is incalculable. Every
minina man in  Kust and Wesl

Tha    «„.-■<     .'t    I'"'   "    I" "*'■  " '
The first of these is the Canal
that was to connect; lhe Columbia
and Kootenay Rivers at Canal
Flat, as crazy a scheme us was
ever hatched outside of a lunatic
asylum, But still the Government gave its promoters 80,000
acres of the besl lands in the
coul for smelting purposes,
Col. linker, through his influence in the Legislature, obtained
at practically no cosl to himself
a charter for the British Columbia Southern Railway.
The Government of which he
a member unv.* him all the

went to the Canadian Pacific connection with the railwav
Raihvay as a grant for the build- charter,

Rohson in West Kootenay.   This
was a most shameful pillaging of
ilu- lands of Kusi Kootenay.

activity, and yet the Government is spending $1,000,000 of
the people's money to keep this
Klondyke boom going.
Chinese Labor.
The Government for many
years has been thc persistent
opponent of every form of restriction of Chinese immigration.
Col. Baker has recorded hii
nil time for the benefit .,, ...i*
whole people, instead of being
given io a few scheming individuals lo make them .uni their
posterity wealthy coul barons,
practically for all time.
H is believed that there is a
Haw in the transfer of these coal
lands, and if the Government is
defeated at the elections, an
effort, whicli has a good chance
of being successful, will be made
to have Ihese lands returned to
the people.
Government Officials,

SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 18IIH.
CROW'S    NEST
COMMISSION.
SYNOPSIS OF THE EEPOET SUBMITTED   TO  THE  HOUSE
OF COMMONS.
A Tale of Cruelty to the Men Engaged on Construction — Wages
Should be $2 or $2.50.
Ottawa, June 1.— The report
of the commission to inquire into the grievances of the workmen on the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway construction, Messrs. C.
A. Dugas, Frank Pedley and
John Appleton. has been laid on
the table of the House. They
began their work on January 15,
18118. They examined 282 witnesses and in addition interviewed large mlmbers of men. The
largest number up to February
3rd employed on the work was
4.500. Discharged men and men
leaving numbered 500. The contractors could themselves hire
men, but all had to accept a
scale of wages fixed by Mr.
Haney, the manager of construction for the C. P. R. The
report states that besides the
men hired for the company Mr.
Haney would help in securing
men for the contractors.   Mr. J.
B. Charleston, who was a public
works official at Ottawa, was
appointed sole agent from Fort
William to Montreal; Mr. Wm.
McCreary, and later Mr. Onlder,
for Winnipeg, and Mr. Guerin
at Montreal. Mr. Haney instructed Mr. Charleston on the
17th of July last to hire 500 axemen. Subsequently Mr. Haney
gave, orders to Mr. Charleston to
hire 100 axemen at $20 to $26 per
month and board. A man named
H. M. Roy was engaged by Mr.
Charleston to hire these men.
Roy guaranteed free passage to
the men and food on the road
and blankets, their time to commence from the day they arrived
at Macleod. Roy failed to obtain the blankets. At Macleod
the men were kept there nine
days idle under tents aud without blankets, and they complained of suffering from cold
during the nights. About August 23rd. hearing that the company Intended to deduct their
fare from Ottawa to Macleod and
transportation from Macleod to
the works, the men sent two
delegates to Mr. Haney, but they
got no satisfaction, and the day
after one of them was discharged, Mr. Haney afterwards
said that this man Laferriore,
along with one Dupont, were
discharged as being ringleaders.
These mon hired as axemen had
to work with pick and shovel for
weeks, and although engaged by
the month at sj-20 to *2ti and
board, they were deducted lor
Sundays and for Inclement
weather, or for other circumstances over which they had no
control, and on these days for
which they docked their wages
they were charged for their
board. These discouragements
eaused many of them to leave.
The contracts with Roy which
they had to sign were blanks to
wages. Roy stated that having
specially asked Mr. Charleston
as to the faro, he, answered that
it would be all right, and Roy
understood this to mean that it
would bo free and so represented
to the 115 mon he engaged.
Nevertheless, thoir fare was
charged. The men who had
been deceived, eighteen of them
leaving about tho end of September when they found that thoir
fare from Macleod was to be
charged against them and they
would be laid off, wore 125 miles
from Macleod, but food was refused to all of them on leaving.
in obedience lo general orders
given nt die company's camps,
even the men complained of nol
gelling sufficient food to work
mi. Fifty-four of them were dis-
charged uu Sunday morning
when about Iiin miles from Maoleod, and the evidence showed
that P. Nash, who discharged
thum. not only at first refused
them food to keep them on the
way, but also sent some one
ahead of them, or went himself,
to give ordors at the company's
camps not to feed them on their
way. The report says ou this
point: There is no positive proof
to that effect, except that at first
Nash did give orders to his cook
not to give them any provisions,
and that only upon their threats
were they permitted to take
what they could lay their hands
on in the kitchen, sufficient for
three meals. On the road the
men were really refused provisions, an 4 while he himself denies giving a special order to
that effect, Inspector Saunders
declares that Nash admitted that
he had given orders to the
camps not to supply food, as
they wished to "teach the other
men a lesson."
Many of the men suffered a
great deal of hardship, many of
them going toward Macleod destitute, without food, sleeping in
the open and suffering from cold.
It seemed to be a general rule to
refuse food to all men when discharged or quitting work, and
one instance is given of a man
who faiuted from weakness from
want of food, and three men had
to subsist for a whole day on one
onion. Men were refused a
pinch of salt ou leaving camp
which they asked for in order to
salt fish they might catch.
Sometimes they subsisted on
remnants of food thrown away
on the road. In some cases
cheques were given to. pay these
men that were refused at the
bank. The commissioners met
one of these men who was thus
out ?65, Near Fort Steele 25
men from one of the camps
stated that the contractor had
left camp December "tth. They
had barely enough to eat and
could not get provisions. The
tent had become filthy and settlement of their wages had taken
place since, and they were in the
dark as to what would happen to
them. At some camps the men
were entirely forbidden on pain
of instant dismissal to speak
during the work, and one of
them asked if they were prisoners. The foreman replied that
they wero nearly so. The complaints were many from men
who wero kept idle who had to
pay board and getting no wages.
Working the average possible
number of days, laborers paid at
the rate of $1.50 would have at
the end of the year Ifl5 each.
Working 20 days in the month,
he would have fcHti, and if paid
$1.75 and charged $5 a week for
board and Working 21-j days per
month, he would have $21 at the
end of the year. Working nine
months at 211 days per month,
which is the average number
it is possible to work on the
road, he would be out of pocket,
$22 at receiving $1.50 per day,
and receiving $1.75 he would be
out of pocket $10. The men
found that after working two,
three or four months they wero
not in a position to provide the
necessaries of life for their families, and having to pay his fare
home it was impossible ever
to see his family under theso
conditions, Under such conditions the commissioners say the
laborer felt like a prisoner in a
strange land, and many of them
started for home on foot to walk
from 1,000 to 2,500 miles, and
instances were found where remnants of food, orange peel, and
so forth, thrown by passengers
from the passing coaches, were
used to satisfy thn hunger of
theso men.
Tho difficulties the company
had with their men is alluded to.
Mr. Haney says he was ignorant
of the representations made to
the men in the oast regarding
wages nn.l transportation and
blankets. The commissioners
believe the evidence establishes
the following facts:
Breach of agreement on
the part of the company
anil contractors; lack of proper
attendance to the men in several
instances when reaching Mueleod; forcing men to sleep in the
open without blankets on the
bare ground or in unfit places;
lack of proper washing accommodation, and in some places
filthy camps full of vermin; the
keeping of the men under tents
until the beginning of January
without stoves; threatening the
men with discharge if they made
any complaints; tlie loss of time
through enforced idleness; the
well-founded universal complaint
concerning medical attendance;
the discharging of men without
any provision being made to secure them from exposure and suffering ; the refusal of meals to sick
persons, and the determination
of sub-officials to set them to
work notwithstanding the low
rate of wages; the arrest of several without the legal right.
The commissioners make a
number of suggestions or recommendations to improve the deplorable condition of affairs, including that the scale of wages
should be $2 to $2.50 per day for
laborers; that no liquor be sold
on or near works of this kind,
and that independent government officials be appointed with
certain magisterial powers to
settle on the spot all difficulties
and complaints, and to see to the
proper execution of the rules and
regulations in force. It is suggested that the recommendations apply to all public works,
and it is further suggested that
the men who have worked three
months should have their fare
reimbursed and that those who
have worked six months should
have the fare home free or at a

EUROPE AND THE PHILIPPINES
Powers   Will   Protest  Against   the
United States Taking Them.
A Washington dispatch to the
World says: In spite of assurances of European prime ministers of no interference in tho
Spanish-American war, it is
known to the state department,
as well as to the prominent
diplomats, that European intervention is contemplated as soon
as this government declares
officiall its policy regarding the
Philippines, From our various
representatives abroad the state
department has learned that
Europe has resigned itself to the
Spanish loss of Cuba and probably of Puerto Rico. But a declaration concerning the retention
of the Asiatic islands by us or
their disposal to England or
Japan will, it is asserted, call
forth a unanimous protest from
the continental powers.
Germany has already officially
served notice of this. In the
latest issue of the Deutsche Kolou-
itil Xeilitng, official organ of the
German colonial ministry, it is
stated that ''the imperial government will, unddi' no circumstances, tolerate any change of the
status quo in the .extreme east,
a standing which Germany has
won for herself so painfully and
amid such dire dangers."
The paper adds: "Germany's
adve -so policy to any change in
the east will become the stronger
the closer the relations of the
United States become witli England."
In this Germany is supported
by her allies, Austria and Italy.
General Salotta, the commissioner sent by the Italion premier to
Berlin, is now engaged upon a
report, to the Italion chambers
dealing with tlie urgent reasons
why united Europe should oppose any new factors in the
Orient.
This article has aroused wide
discussion in diplomatic circles.
It is believed to be a thinly disguised threat not so much
against the retention of tho
Philippines as against allianci
with England.   France has also

SATURDAY, JUNE 18,1898,
An Independant Opinion.
The Toronto Telegram is one of
the most independent and fear-
loss newspapers in Canada. It
is thu defender of people's rights
in all parts of the Dominion,
Hear what it has to say regarding the spoliation of public lands
in this Districl.   It says:
"Then there is the Kootenay
Valleys Company. This Company secured from the Provincial Government a charter to
construct tt Canal connecting the
bead waters of the Kootenay
Hiver with the Columbia lakes,
in which the Columbia liiver has
its rise, and providing unimpeded navigation Ironi (lolden, on
the Canadiau Pacific Railway,
through in the Montana boundary. As a subsidy tor the work
the Provincial Government
granted tho Company 80,0011
acres of land In lie chosen as the
Company saw lit. The canal
was iniiii and in use tine season.
Conceived in ignorance and carried out with stupidity, it Hooded
land and threatened in turn the
Kooleiiny liiver entirely inlo the
Columbia and destroy ii ns a
navigable stream through 200
miles of its course in Canada. So
the Canal was abandoned.
"Hut here is the chief evil of
the job. Whoever drew up the
agreement between the Canal
Company and the Governmenl
culpably omitted to insert a reversionary clause that, in the
event of the Company not providing a serviceable Canal, the
laud should revert to the people.
As it is. the Company have possession of the Hnest land in
Southern Hrilisli Columbia, ami
the people have in exchange for
this fair proportion of their pal
riniiiiiy   a ditch.
So, between llicin, the Canadian Pacific Company and the
Kootenaj Valleys Cpmpanji own
most of ihe choicest land, for bo
sure llinse |i(.(i|ije |nil their
sialics only in whal is the bust,
when there is It choice In In*
nniiii'. And Knsl Kootenay is
practically closed lo tho agricul
uuisl iniiii tho proprietors can
mako nioni'.v out of him..
