The " Working Man " Racket Will Not  Go Where Mr. Kellie is so Well  Known���������Since When Did He Become  A Martyr in the Cause of the Poor  Down-Trodden' Laboring Man?���������It's  Merely Your Vote That's Wanted.-  J. M. Kellie says he is a u-nrkingm.in  and a miner. This is a free country  and anybody can call himself anything  he likes. As a workinginan he has  about as soft a snap us anybody of  The IIerald's acquaintance in this  town and his mining is apparently  confined to posing as the local director  of the goldfield.. of British Columbia',  Limit-., in the advertisement of that  company. Jlr. Kellie may have lind  to earn his living by the. labor of his  Il-lids at some bygone period of' his  career in this country. ~ Th .t is very  likely. There aie, very few pioneers  in the west who have not had to turn  themselves loose-und get down to  manual labor at soiiie time or another  of their,,history.- But. that stage -of  the game has long been past iu Mr.'  Kellie's   case.

An instance in 'point  occurred'here  in Revelstoke in   1S95.   The  government were inattrnising the hunk along  Ihe olel town.     Work  was scarce  at  the time, lahiii'wns plentiful,  and  the  engineer    in   charge   put   the   wages  down t'n SI.50   a day.    A   meeting  of  some of the  most  prnmin������nf citizens  was held iihnub thai time  for another  purpose,     at     which   we re    piesent.  Messrs.   H.  N.   Coursier.    W.   Cowan  and     ,   other        rioted       s lpporters  of  Mr.   Kellie.   the   '-working   man's  friend"   in  this election.     Sir. XV. M.  Brown was also  present  and  brought  thi~__iiiiitteiu-Of__th_i-lov/^-w;iges_lieing  paid   on"- the   liiattrassing   work    up  before them.    Not a  man   would  lift  his hand to help the working men  lo  get a _'aise.  , They .weie .-ig.iinst any  interferen'-e.    There   was no  election  on iust, then nnd the principal use Ihey  hnd for the working men at that, time  was to get. n<* much matti-assing out, of  them    as   the    appmprintion    would  cover by cutting f hem down   to SI.50.  per day.   The ivrirkiiia.  men  cnl led  a  meeting   in   Peterson's  hull,   at   Mr,  Brown's suggest ion. at, which none ol'  the business   men   <if   lhe   town    were  present except himself.     They ,passed  a r.-.siibitioii demanding higher  w-n're**.  which w.-ls  foi-winded   In   Hon.   Theodore   Davie,   then    the   premier.    The  house mis   lhen   in   *-i.*.<."nn   and  Mr.  Kellie   was   in   Victoria.    Mr.   Kellie  was a sllong supporter of   Sir.   Davie.  He  is a event   udiniri't'   of him ,|S a  premier.    lie h.-t������ fieijuently said cince  the flop  that  things  are  tint   now us  they were in JTheodore   Davie's   duvs.  Did      Mr.      Kellie's      influence     wilh  Premier Davie help the working  men  of Hevelitnke. whom Mr.   Kellie loves  so well?   Sm ely. Mv. Davie must have  consulted the member'for  iiie  ��������� .dinar  on tin- receipt of th"resolution. Surely  the ������������������ woi king man's  friend"  got  the  wages, raised.     Not a bit.of it..     The  answer came buck refusing  to  -liter  the rate of wanes on  tin* ground   that  the appropriation was small audit w.is  necessary  to  get   as   much   work   as  pnssihle  done for  the -money.   And  there      is     not     the     least      doubt  in      the      world     that        to     this  argument of the sweatshop Mr. Kellie  was a consenting party, and  that he  and   liis   supporters   in   the    present  election, approved   aided and  abetted  in grinding down the working men to  Chinese wages at, that, juncture.   Mr.  Kellie and  thev  ni.iy  talk   "working  man's fripnd" till tbey at'e blup  In   the  face, hilt they  cannot  talk   that  out.  The wages were raised,   indeud,  afterwards, not  by   the   eSertioli   of   Mr.  Kellie.   the   "labor     candid-ite,"   the  ������������������ working man,"the  "woiking man's  frienc," but throinrh the influence of  Mr. Mai a, the wicked Tory ifiemherat  Oitawa.   on    the    '-monopolist"   Conservative government of the Dominion  who were doing half the  work.    One  such record as this on the  wage  ques-  i ion is  sufficient  to' knock   out  Mr.  Kellie's pretentions as a. labor candidate and to show the hypocrisy of his  attitude as a friend  of the  workine  man.    If he has any expl .nation of his  conduct on that occasion  let him  declare it on  the  platform.     Tomorrow  the  Herald   will   have some  more  eypluiniiiR for him to do,  Another Theory.  Mr. Uo.lilis,' foreman of the Donald  shops, was an intimate friend of A. G.  jM, Spragge. Both gentlemen hunted  frequently together and Mr. Hobbs  claims to have/ known Mr Spragge's  habits thoroughly. He suys the whole  ciicuiust'inces atteiidinir Mr.Spragge's  disappearance indicate disliru tly lhat  he h"S met with a fatal iiccidi'iit. pro-  Imlily. by the biii.k of the river slipping  and carrying him down, or else by his  iiscideiitiil drowning in the river.

Like  HOW MIS LOVE PINCHED OUT  Four Thousand Dollars of the Grant for  Developing That Camp Squandered  on an Unnecessary Wagon Road and  Bridge to Connect " Lardeau" With  the Trout Lake Trail���������.He Can Not  Be Depended Upon.       '  .  In discussing Mr. Kellie's friendship  for the working men the Hekald gave  air instance yesterday of its liability  to conl at. close contact. Here is  another.  Miners and ptospectnrs are working men. That is to any one kind are.  Not, of course, the kind of miner Mr.  Kellie is. That kind does uot do any  work to speak nf. It does not have to.  But the plain, ordinary niiiiei "and  prospeitor works pi eit y hard for what  he gels. Let tis see what kind of a  friend Mr. Kellie has beeli'to this class  of working men.  '   -  As everyone knows, their member  in the local legislature can' help these  men out a good deal. He has a great  deal to say in' the distribution of the  appiopriation for roads and trails' in  lhe district and much of the success of  labor of this class depends on a judicious and impartial' distribution of  these funds among the di lie rent camps  in the dislrict. There is one camp in  Ibis riding. Fish Creek, "of which .the  surface shewings and prospects are  equal to anything in Kootenay. Let  us see how Mr. Kellie helped the  miners arid pruvpectors of that camp  to reap  the reward > of   their  labors.  In 1802 a town'culled "Lardeau" was  st.uted on the shore of,,the Arm of  -AiTi>w,?*i.~k-*vMr. Kellie beihg,a- sixth  owner.- There "was"qiiitu a hno'iu'in  "Lardeau" properly for, awhile 'iind  lois are owned a't this day by people  even .-is far away', us Spokane. The  town Wits laid, out on a nice flat,  Iboiigb unfortunately for the purchasers of town lots liable as the event  proved to serious floods, and also  unfortunately ou the olher side of  Fish Creek ' from the really valuable  mineral locutions, 111 fact, with a feiv  trilliug exceptions, i'roin every claim  anil prospi'L'l. un the lower part of the  creek, the dislrict. with which we are  concerned. Opposite " Lar-ileuu," on  tbe oilier side of the mouth of Fish  Creek, is Thomson's -Liuiiling, the  point of lauding goods uud travclleis  for the L-irdeau district proper and  also the.point ot &upply_for the miners  fiuTl prospectors of FuslfCrpek. These  working men, convinced that, they  bad a valuable district on the south  side of Fish Creek, naturally wauled  to sec that side opened up and claimed,  and then" contention has never been  controverted except by ilr." Kellie,  thiit lhe siiiilh side prebetiled quiti* as  good, if not belter, facilities lor the  construction of a road than the noHh  side. However, Mr. Kellie failed to  see eye to eyo will) them in this  unit ter as lhe following list of appropriations in the dislrict will shew.  , In ISO.-. Mil* yen!- of the locution of  ���������' iJni'ileiiM." a_ giant uf SI, 100 wa*.  111a.li' iiiul il trail built, from Thniii**iin'-  Linding. crn-siiig Fish Creek.

In lS'.Ki 81.2'JO Wiis appropriated to  build another bridge, which nobody  wanted, iicin.*.- ilm' mouth of Fi>*ii  Creek at " Laidciiu." known as llie  Townsile Bridge.  In ISO I- lhis biidge was connected  with the Tim tl. L-ike waggon mad by  the cons', 1 iici ion of three miles of ii  ro.id i'ii.m "I_.iiide.-ni." along a line  which -iilelr.ii-kcd Thomson's Landing  altogether. Nobody 'united llie road  any more than llie briilfi*. It has  never been travelled and has now very  largely gone back to its primeval condition of wilderness. The only possible object of ils construction can have  been to divert the tnit.ie from Thomson's Landing to "Lardeau."  In 181)4 a second appropriation of  31.400 had lo be made lo rebuild the  Townsite Bridge, which hatl been  washed cult. Here is a total of $4,000  expended without one cent of udvantage to the district, or to the mineis  and pro-pei tors In ll. and. if the objector this laige expendituie. which  might have done so much  for " the development of the  counlry. was not tor lhe sole  purpose of drawing the traffic from  Thomson's Llulling to "Laideau," will  Mr. Kellie kindly explain on his next  appearance on the platform, what it  was.

Further  the surveying corps, which has been  establishing the grade of the Teslin  Lake Railway, round specimens o������  coarse gold in thu district. This was  on the Little Tallinn River about 35  miles from Glenora. The boys had  not a gold pan in their outfit but they  washed out coarse gold in .1 common  wash basin.

CHINESE AS FIGHTERS  The statement oi' Lord Salisbury  tbat the Chiuese army and navy  are to be reorganized under tho  supervision of British officers, will  set many minds at work in speculating at the future outcome of the  undertaking. That the Chinese  are quite capable of being licked  into becoming something like  respectable soldiers is demonstrated by the ~ experiences of  General Chinese Gordon in 1SG3  when he organized his notorious  "Ever Victorious Army," which  went successfully through 33  engagements and successfully  suppressed the Tai Ping rebellion.  Men of fine physique, with the  making of splendid soHiersinhabit  the mountainous districts of China,  who with proper training and  able leadership would soon  become as tine a bodv of soldiers  as any in the world. That there is  no lack ot courage if properly disciplined is demonstrated by the  desperate resistance Gordon found  from the Tai-Pings. The known  indifference to death of the Chinaman may be made a useful factor  in his training for a soldier's life.  ,AU that, is wanted to make them  into reliable soldiers is thorough  confidence in their leader aud that  - reliance on oue another's stability  which will follow a military disci-  nline such as would be brought to  bear by English officers.  VERMILLION   RIVER GOLD.  A mining man. recently returned  from the Vermillion River district,  near Sudbury, says that, despite what  has been said to the contrary, the  northern country shows strong indications of valuable placer' deposits,  and he maintains that it will yet become famous. He asserts that discoveries of alluvial gold have been made  far west of Vermillion, river. On the  Vermillion river bedrock lies from 20  to 100 feet below the surface of the  ground, but near-Lake Onopang _the_  the bottom of the deposit is only from  10 to 40 feet beneath the ground. Tbo  richness of the. earth increases as  depth is reached, and in one instance  bed lock being reached at a depth o������  seven teet, the gravel vielded between  S200 and SUOO to the pirn.  Lake Onopang is a body of water 30  miles in length, and is only one of a  series of lakes stretching away to the  north and west toward. Hudson Bay,  and if prospectors can substantiate  their stories to the effect that placer  gold exists throughout the i egion in  commercial quantities, Toronto may  yet have a Yukon on a small scale near  -at home.  Fred Parks, of Maysvillc. California,  who has been pretty w-ell over the  west, asserts that he has discovered  the mother lode of the Vermillion  River district, about five miles northeast of Lake Wawa, He has found  free showings of gold, and he says  that such discoverres would create a  furore in the west. He is confident  that the mineral formation of Michip-  icoten extends clear lo the Hudson's  Bay country.  NICE-IMMIGRANTS THESE  The Winnipeg Tribune says: A noncommissioned officer, a corporal and  tour men are continually kepi on  guard at the quarantine, keeping the  Galicians within their fence. They  have almost had iis much trouble  keeping inquisitive citizens out as  they have had in keeping the Galicians  hack.  The military orders are very strict  and they are "to the effect that anyone  passing "over the fence enclosing the  Galicians ���������will not under any circumstances be allowed to return, but will  be kept in quarantine during the required period.  The little boy. one nf the three  afflicted with small pox in the Galician quarantine, is dead. The repoit  that another case had broken out  Saturdav is incorrect, and there are  now only two patients lelt and both  ate doing well.  Twentv-seyen Galicians arrived from  the east yesterday. Drs. Inglis and  Corbett met theni and found several  of the children they brought affected  with measles. They were at on_e  sent out to the quarantine, and the  population there was swelled by their  addition to GG0.

But  as we have repeated over and over  ngain, if we will listen to the dulcet  voice of the. fake wemust^pay. Itis  our privilege to pay. The Examiner  itself is AT at Lloyd's as a newspaper,  and we will .'subscribe .for it on ils  own merits every time, but we cannot  have our child like faith in yellow  journalism shuttered by doubtful lotteries. It is all we'can do to stand tne  bogus telegrams.  Prosperity has ils evils. In the  happy go lucky days ot Lwo or three  years ago when times wore bad, no  crops, no money, with nearly everybody (though perfectly happy), people  seemed to mind their own business  fairly well. ' Now, however, that  money has been dancing in the 'air  anel the kind eyes 'of fortune have  smiled upon us, t he citizens of this  littlo burg watel? each other closer  than heretofore and tho spirit of hy-  percritici&m is abroad in the land.  There is flowing ut present, we are  sorry to say, an undercurrent of dislikes and, personal bickerings that  threatens to split our littlo population  into a disagreeable arrangement of  cliques before we know where we are.  If this is allowed to go on, wo" will fall  to the level of the typical burg, which,  for smallness ol|soul, and suicidal  stupidity, is luird to beat. Let ns  have amity, .tolerance and lorbcar-  ance, cultivale friendship, and try to  realize lhat we ull have our points .ot  usefulness iind uselessncss in this  world: anil its for'those'who would  place themselves on a higher plane  than their fellows becauso they do not  happen to have tho monev or-the  constitutions to be '-wicked," they  should remember thnttheir superiority  is an opinion only private to themselves.  If Wetaskiwin does not wish to become a "stuff" town, she has got to  mend her ways. A. town of chatter-'  ing old fishwives this town must never  be. The typical burg is, as we all  know, a most objectionable place  to live.in, with its divisions, splits,  dismemberments,'coteries, cliques, its  surface faintly agitated with the just  and the unjust, the influential corner  grocery man iind his idolators, the  saloon" man and his, dupes, the  "Methody'" parson and his faction  (mostly Indies), and the irrepressible  livery stable element. We have dwelt  in burgs all over this continent, from  New Orleans to Edmonton and from  Chicago to the coast. They are all  alike, especially in the "we are the  people" sense. " Ciri.t Roiiiounn sum  is the cry. At one' time we fondly  fancied Wetaskiwin to be the [exception that proves the rule, but we are  gradually becoming like the rest of  ehem";���������inrhe���������jolly���������old���������busied���������d <cy.-j-  when we were all at sea in an open  boat, as it were, with water, water,  everywhere, and not a drop to drink  but whiskey, when townspeople and  countrv folk alike were getting washed on tb the rocks, things ran smooth,  nieii being toodeeplv engro__et"-,tryJii2  to make both ends meet to p.iy much  attention to the next rnao's business.  Nov.- every man knows as much about,  another's affairs as he knows of his  own, and the infantile interest taken  in the movements of a citizen is hopelessly burg like. The wonder.* of evolution are woll exemplified by lae  beautiful tr.iu.-fomi.ition of some _f  our men into garrulous old women.  Science has no bounds.  And vet a man could live in thi=  babbling hermitage forever if he would  only consent to become aharnilcs-i, but  useful automaton- rt is'- expected in  lung circles, that everyone he cast in  the same mould, never doing anything  more eccentric than getting up in  the morning, performing a certain  quantum of work, eating LhreeE-qu.ites  and going to bed again. -V genius  would have an exciting t>'me in a burg.  One's neighbors are so inv iriably,  though perhaps insensibly, actuated  by self interest, and self interest..  though every twaddler denies it, is fo  cnluelr the'iisi". of our moral world,  that, thev 'lv into a rage with him who  fails to di -play a proper and decent  amount of seliii.shness where his own  interests are concerned, fie i.s turned  down and relegated to the shiftless  class. "Make money but not b.id  breaks," i.s Lhe all, inspiring motto.  Let fun, pleasure, sentiment, Iovewipd  such like nonsense; slide, for if destiny  has marked you for a burg you must  keep oil the good side of the stuffs and  behave your-elf.  The idea of dwelling in conversation  on Llie creditable deeds of an acquaintance is Loo pi cposterous to be entertained fora moment. Creditable cleeel*i  are never ns spicy us bad bteak*.  Hotel offices and parlor- are the  graves of all our reputations. Tho  besL, simplest and pli-is.-intest. way out  of it is to shape- your lives tliat you  have no remit ation at all worth ������p_ uk-  ing of. That is our mtir/ii.i nrrmil  every time.

WOLSELEY DECLINES.  A London correspondent says: *:The  rumor Lhat the Duke ' of Connaught  will bo the viceroy of Canada is without foundation. ;rhe nosL has been at  'lhe* disposal of Lord Wolseley, who is  believed to havo intimated that he  would prefer to remain coinmander-in  chief. The Queen is said, to hold the  opinion that the command of the  army is a royal function, and.to have  been" dissatisfied since the Duke of  Cambridge was forced to retire. It is  not unlikely that the real object of  the overtures made to Lord ��������� Wol-  selev to accent the. post ot viceroy of  Canada was t creo ate a vacancy for  the Duke of Connaught. rather than  for Lord Roberts.

C.  \  If So Gome to Revelstoke the Mining  Centre of North Kootenay   -   -   -   -  It has heen predicted hy leading men of Canada that Revelstoke will  be one of the leading cities of West Kootenay. That its unique position  where the C, P. R. crosses the beautiful Columbia valley, with water trann-  portation co the north and south and in close proximity to the richest mines  in Kootenay, making its location unu~iially favorable. If you want to invest  your money in manufactoiies, real estate, or mining property, visit  Revelstoke, the "Gateway to the Kootenay."  Wo are moving to the front and" no obstacle will or can impede our  wonderful progress.     Do not forget that vou will never buy real estate as   ;  cheap as you can buy it today.   Figure the increase of the past and speculate  in Revelstoke, the "Gateway to the Kootenay.''  The banks of the Columbia, on which river the town is situated, have  been the stage upon which strange scenes have been displayed and wild and  dariuer exploits pel formed hy the thousands who entered tliis district during  the '07 gold boom in the Big Bend.  Revelstoke is probably one of the oldest towns in the interior.   And it  was not until this title question  was settled that Revelstoke really began to  forge ahead, commercially and otherwise.   Growth was slow until 1897, bub.,  the old timers and newcomers had great confidence in the town and s.arted m ,  to make it a mining centre worthy of note.  lhe   C.  P. R. is   concentrating all its   principal wotkshops on the * ���������  western division at Revelstoke.    Revelstoke is not only a mining town, but is  now and will he increasingly so in the future a railway point of considerable  ,  importance in the C. P. R. system and a distributing centre for the business of  the rich  mining districts included in the section popularly known as North ,  Kootenay.   Its impot~ance in these connections is due to its unique geogra- .  phical position.   Seated in a beautiful  open valley at the point of intersection  of the Columbia river and the C. P. R. main line, it commands the passes ,"  running norlh and south, to the famous gold fields of the Big Bend ar.d tbe  rich mineral leads   of the Liirdeau, while on  the east up the Illecillewaet  another district of great prospect is heing opened up.   The town is the point   '  of junction of the main line and the Arrowhead branch of the C. P. R., by  '  which access is gained to lhe South Kootenay by rail aud steamer.   Another "  line of steamers will make Revelstoke their starting point for the Big Bend,   ,  for whicli country it is at present the sole outfittingpoint and base of supplies.  Thus hy the mere foi ce ot geographical position alone Revelstoke has forged"'  to the front until the little mining camp of a few years ago has become a town  of considerable importance to the business of the province.  The mining industry is still in its infancy, but with the careful expen- .  dilute of capital in development work >vill grow to large dimensions. ~ *  Large areas of land in close proximity to the town are covered with 7"  timber suitable for lumber, hut probably just as'-valuable as Hre wood, there   .  being no coal deposits discovered near at hand as yet.   This land when cleared'  is proving to be exceptionally fine farming and gardening land,, and   tbe  demand for produce is always many times larger than the supply, train loads. '  being imported from other points every season.   This should be taken into  consideration by intending settlers. f  Across the river from Revelstoke an excellent clay exists for the mak-*'<  ing of brick in vast quantities, which commands a high' price at any time.  - The lown enjoys many advantages: . A fine, healthy climate���������tbe "-  death rate heing exceedingly low���������good water.Hsupplied by a system of water  works, from the mountain side just north of the town, underlying which is a ���������  stratum of gravel that ensures a natural drainage. A short distance up the C.  P. R. track, east, to the Illecillewaet river, is a canyon and falls, which must  be seen to be fully appreciated. The power from these falls is now being utilized by ahe Revelstoke Water, Light & Power Co. for running their fine electric lighting plant. They have an unlimited power which later on will he  useful for manufacturing purposes and running the proposed street car linn.  > IS,  ", *"**_-'  . -0-   '!'  J-.  ?

Justice.  THE OLD OFFICE DEVIL.  ��������� He Tolls How He Evoluted Into a Conn-  try Editor.  Tho old time devil was keen to learn.  Ho had gall. Ho wasn't afraid to ask  tho milliners for advertising or printing Ho dreamed of owning a paper of  his own. He experimented in a thousand ways. Ho lived in the office almost, heing thero early and late. He  mado a hattery and copper platod types  before tho first type founder thought of  doing it. He did stereotyping in a rude  way, making a matrix from blotting  ' paper. Desiring to do his work better,  he tried to buy propor materials for  stereotyping, but he was bluffed so easily  by the prices or talk given him by the  dealer- that for many years he supposed  he was the victim of some infamously  jealous trusts.  A tramp printer from Chicago made  him believe that gasoline could be  made. The Chicago man pointed to a  big can of the fluid and insisted that he  had mado it. Gasoline was high priced  then. ' Tho devil sold the gasoline the  printer said ho had made to a rival  office, and the two divided the money.  "Make some more," said the devil.  "Thero is a .demand for it." Tho Chicago printer left that night, and the  editor made tho devil pny for the gasoline.  Tho editor can recall his ��������� last visit  from tho trauip printer ho "learned the  trade" with, the ouo who made gasoline. He camo iuto tho "shop" and was  denied work bj* tho foreman. He BftW fit  a'glance that the old days and loose  ways wore gouc. Neatly dressed, well  kept young men aud women wore nt  work in au ofiice as clean ������_ a parlor.  "Whose rumiin this sheot now?" he  inquired.  ' "Jack Hill," was tho reply.  "1 know him," he said laconically.,  "I taught him his biz."  And then they saw him drift into tho  i say: "Hello,  I want some-  C. B. Hume  & Co.

"Gasoliuo" get what ho asked for,  just as all tourists do who apply. The  next morning he called ou his editor  friend again, sud when' lie found him  discussing prohibition with two or three  ministers and cne or two of the elders  _of___tho_to^wn__he_lnrchedjright__in_t_ojhe_  editorial den nud joined in the talk to  help the editor along. Ho was very  drunk. He cried and said that naturally  he was a prohibitionist, but he really  longed to dio and go to heaven, only he.  had become "such a d������������������d skeptic he  didn't believe there was such a place."  Then he went to sleep. The preachers  looked at him in pity. The editor spoke  kindly o$ him as a comrade who had  seen better days. As the editor talked  "Gasoline" awoke and said:  "Jack, if you don't gimme a quarter  to buv a driuk with I'll sit here and  holler."  And "holler" he did.  He "hollered" until .the ministers  left.  This may or mny not account for tho  lact that prohibition hns prohibited in  Editor Jack Hill's town sinco tho last  visit of his Chicago printer friend.���������  Chicago Times-Herald.  A Deep 5ni������~*_ dtnry.  "Tho wife of a well-known selector In  the Narr.ibrl district had a startling experience tho other day with shakes.

The fact thnt these unpleasant  neighbors were =o close caused the lady  no small anxiety on boh.ilf of her only  son, a boy of four years. One dny she  left, tin* bor asleep ln his cot upon tho  verandah, and was busying herself about  her household duties, when she was attracted to tho back door hy n curious  buzzing noise, and to her horror she saw  thn brown snake thore, standingi almost  straight up, waving to and fro, anel giving forth the noise which hail attract, d  her attention nt, first.

When th<*y arrived at tho underground tank, about 100 yards from  the house, the woman saw thn reason of  this strange visit; for there was her little hoy (he hnd strayed from his bed and  fallen in the tank) the other snuke holding him by the hair of his head, straining every muscle to keep tho child from  drowning, while his niato brought he* It.

Distributing Collector. SUPPLEMENT.  REVELSTOKE   HERALD.  9  0?  An  Open   Letter to  the Electors of British  Columbia  ln Which the Whole Policy of the Govern-  o ment is Reviewed.  To tie Electors of British Columbia :  Gentlemen,���������  Owing to my inability to personally  addreBB as many electors throughout the  province as I had intended, or would  have desired.I take this means of laying  my views before yon. At the end of  another parliament and just before another election you are entitled to a pergonal account of the stewardship of  those who have represented you for four  years, more especially from myself as  having been for the greater part  of the time entrusted with the  direction of affairs; and also to have  a full and fair oportunity from the record that is before you of determining  in whom you will repose confidence for  another term.  A UKITISH COLUMBIA POIIOI.  - I and the government I represent are  before yon on the issues which have  been, created in the management of the  affairs of the Province by. us, and not  upon' issues which have arisen in Dominion politics." Ws are before you as  British Columbians, and on the. policy  of ��������� British Colombia development. We  are to be judged on matters of administration,'0' on 'questions of finance, on.the  maner in which justice has beep admin-  ist-red, on things pertaining to mining,  on our agricultural policy, on consider  ations of public works and railways, on the. general influence  for good of the legislation on the various  interests represented in this country, on  the" progress which" has been effected,  and widely and comprehensively on the  results which mny fairly be claip~ed to.  have flown from our efforts.  A Standard .of Comparison.    ���������  I do not claim that the present administration has been perfect. AVe are made  up of men who are human, and with all  the liability to err of which other'men  are possessed. We have striven to do  that which appeared to us t6 be best  calculated to benefit the Province in the  progress of which we are all more or  less largely interested. While w������ may  not have done the best 'in all instances,  we ' clnim, nevertheless, to have done -well  -~"'b"y-the=electoi~ater~nnd-con_aent_o__the.  justness of our cause, we are before  you for a renewal of the confidence  which has been si) generously extended  to us in the past. If we have not whol-  " ly come up to your expectations, we  ask you to carefully consider whether  those who seek to take our places would  have done better or us well. Examine  proceedings of the Legislature for the  past four years, and ask yourselves what  policv thev have expounded, that if carried into effect would have bettered your  present conditions or advanced the interests of the province in a degree comparable with the progress that has already been made. It is a matter of enm-  parlson, a question of policy against policy, of men against men. These considerations I ask you to take home to yourselves seriously and by your decision we  are willing to nbide.  Introduction of Federal Issues.  There have been strong and persistnt  efforts made to divert the attention of  the electors from the issues which have  arisen in provincial affairs to those  which are of a federal nature, and I  know of no stronger evidence of the  weakness of the cause of many who are  in provincial matters opposed to the present administration than that they wished to introduce issues which nre foreign  to our home affairs, and to conduct the  campaign on lines which would confuse  the electorate and make this government  a stalking horse for politicians at Ottawa. It was an evidence that they were  not strong in legitimate opposition in  provincial policy. Many of my supporters who were Conservatives, seeing  the tendency towards the introduction of  Dominion politics, were anxious to divide the lines accordingly, and urged  such a course 011 the government. I took  a decided stand in that I refused to sanction what I could not endorse. Others  again on both sides suggested a coalition. The government snid NO. That  in perhnps a less objectionable form was  a recognition ot the same principle. I  don't believe in mixing up Provincial anil  Dominion politics. Wc stand or fall  Within our own fortress.  I'ersnnnl .Position In Politics.  Personally, I need not tell you that I  am Conservative and was in my private  capacity a supporter of the late administration at Ottawa. My political sentiments on that score were formed years  ago, when owing to events familiar to  most of us sentiment in this Province  was consolidated on that side. If another coure had been pursued at that time  in regard to the policy nffecting British  Columbia, it might have beer, different  with me and many others. Originally a  free trader, I nevertheless endorsed the  principle of protection in the National  Policy and I belived from a practical standpoint, all things considered, and  particularly in view of the attitude of  the United States towards this country,  it was in the' interests of Canada. I  think so still. But whether the Conservatives or Liberals were right, it was  my ��������� right and privilege to vote on Dominion political issues as I pleased; but  as a government, this government;, has  been absolutely without, prejudice or  withput party color. Since the present  party at Ottawa has come into power,  we have endeavored to act in the same  friendly way and without "a particle of  prejudice, towards them, as.we 'did- towards their predecessors, and have tried  in every wny and on all occasions to ro--  operate' as far as co-operation was jiossible in any and all matters affecting'the  mutual interests of the Province and the  Dominion. I defy any person to lay finger on any action of ours in relation to  the Dominion, which has not breathed of  friendship and earnest desire on our  part to meet the government at Ottawa  half way. We have acted on thi* principle that there should be no distinction  of politics in interests that are mutual,  and party lines Bhould never enter to interfere.  Strict. Neutrality.  Therefore, I say, we are before vou as  British .Columbian's on a British  Columbian policy. -_I might point to the  disadvantages and the evils arising out  of coalescing in politics with the Dominion; but I am not now. denling with that  subject, except in so far as it is necessary to explain our ,'position, which is  and haB been one of strictest neutrality.  A QUKSTION OF COUItTESV.  It may be held that in reference to the  protection of the Columbia' Hiver lit  Revelstoke the attitude of the province  was not one.of friendliness; and while on  that subject I may as well deal with the  criticisms of the Opposition. It is stated that the government in this matter at  first denied its responsibility in the prem-  ises,=-then-admitted-it,-and-again-repudi-  ated it. This is not the case. The government .does not now and never did admit that that work is one which it should  undertake, and although it HAS undertaken it as a MATTER OF LOCAL  NECESSITY, I can assure you that this  is not the last of it���������that sooner or later,  whatever party is in power at Ottawa,  the broad question of the responsibility  of the. Dominion government in regard  to the damage done by the action of navigable waters will, have to be taken up  and definitely settled, and then the Province will demand consideration and compensation for this work.  Kiive'l-tiiki) I'rote'Ctini. llevleweil.  his own support, he was willing to take  the onus off the Dominion, and with that  consistency for which his political career  lh noted is as strongly denouncing the  Provincial government, because it refused to accept his view of the situation,  tion.'  The* ftnveiruiiietlt'- Position Kxplalneel.  Now, then, as to our position In this  matter.    The- vote wns not put on for  thnt purpose In 1807.   It may hnve been  a mistake, or it may not, In view of the  action the government subsequently took,  but it was a matter considered not to be  within oiir rights.   However, In going up  to llevelstoke last summer, I was, strongly urged to take the matter up, and seeing for myself the loss to property that  was likely to ensue, I wired and wrote to  Ottawa urging the necessity of protection    nnd    offering    as   a    matter   of  urgency     to     co-operate.     The    reply  was "No vote,"   and   I     was   reminded of our refusal to co-operate.   I wrote  and nlrged again, but without avail.    I  then sent up our own engineer to report  for     the " purpose     of     getting     an  estimate!     After     receiving     the     report    I wrote ' again    in'' order   that  the Minister   of "Public   Works ' plight  provide  a  sum  in  the estimate of  Tbe  current year.   Our representations were  made in the most courteous manner, nnd  with but one desire, and that to help the  people of Revelstoke.   Hon, Mr. Tarte.  in a niqment of spleen���������and I absolve, his  colleagues from all blame,���������wrote as discourteous   and  undignified  a  letter  as  w������s possible for   one   minister   of   the  Crown to address to another, and,in or-  dp~: to. justify himself, testily represented it as a, protect against this govern-  rpeyit throwing the responsibility of nonaction on his department.    In this he  was wholly misleading.     This   government did not attempt to do anything of  tbe kind.    It -is true we held' that the  Dominion government was    responsible  for the protection of the river bank, but  not for the work   not,having gone on,  which was another and different matter.  1 did point out, however, that in refusing NOW to co-operate -with the province simply as a,question pf etiquette,  tiie Minister jvppld be reappnflble   ,fpr  any loss that might pecpr.    I hold it fo  fie the most childish, not to say culpable,  thing of -which a minister of the Crowp  could be guilty, when wholesale destruction of property wap threatened, tp hold  bppk pn & ppipt of ethic?.   The estimate  pf thp, engineer for a compjetp job wps  (45)000; b\ih'in viey. of the^great and im-  minent danger to the province, wp. took  it in - hand and did a portion   sufficient  fpr  protection,  at  its own  cost.    The  wofk yvas performed expeditiously and  well, and I am glad it has been successful in withstanding the high water.  For the Kiel-torn to Decide.,  'This >vas the,only con'flict pr irritation  of any kind thqt has occurred betyreen  the two' governments, and as to .hip nature of the descpurtesy in this case, and  the responsibility for it which is alleged,  I leave you, the electorate, to judge. I  have referred to the relations pf the Provincial and Dominion government as at  present constituted to shpw.you that pur  efforts and our desire have been to foster goodwill and to advance co-operation in matters of mutual interest and  benefit, so far ns by any acts of it was  possible to achieve that end.  IIKTTKK TERMS I"01_ BllITISII  COLUMIUA.  I do not intend to go over the whole  subject again. The correspondence was  laid before parliament and has been published, but so fnr from there being any  discourtesy on our part or disposition  to unfriendliness it was entirely the  other way. The Dominion government  placed the sum of $10,900 in their 1S96  estimates contingent upon the province  voting a like sum. Whether the Dominion government was sincere - or not in  this I do not know, but not a word was  said about it until a few days before the  session ot 1897, and personally I was  wholly unaware of such a vote. This  government was not consulted about it.  and was not notified ot lt. If there was  any discourtesy if was certainly not on  our part. When the government was  notified it took the position that the duty  Jay wholly with the Dominion government, the same as the proteclion of the  Fraser river banks. If one was a Dominion matter, so was the other. We  considered that to take this up in the  way suggested wns to assume a far-  reaching responsibility, and coming on  us in the beginning of a trying session  the government had not time to take it  up seriously with the Dominion government. On this point I mny say that no  man in the House has talked so strongly  on the treatment of this Province by the  Dominion as the late member for Kootenay, Jlr. Kellie, who in all things except  the Columbia river at Revelstoke, made  it one of bis main political planks. In  respect to that matter, because it affect-  This leads me to tE_~co-_sideri..i_iro"f  pur relations with the Dominion in a general and constitutional way, aqd into  which the question of partizan politics  does and should not enter; but nevertheless of very great moment. It is not a  question of one administration or the  other being in power at Ottnwn. It is a  question affecting the whole future of  British Columbia nnd her rights as a province. At the time of Confederation the  representatives of British Columbia  made a good bargain so fur as they could  see then, but they could not possibly  foresee how every detail would work out.  The Dominion fulfilled its part of the arrangement, perhaps not to the letter, but  so far as the essence of the contract is  concerned. I find no fault with thnt,  npr do I wish now to act the part of  agitator or fomentor of unrest or dissatisfaction; however, under new conditions and in the light of new developments we see' that this province is paying more than its share, is contributing  iii a greater degree than it receives annually, after allowing for all reasonable  charges for cost of government and general expenses.  The* Hull*-iiy -Situation.  I wish to refer more particularly  to the railway situation, which is  involved with this subject. There is  concurrent jurisdiction in railway matters between the Province and the Dominion, and as the railway problem is  coming to, and will soon, be THE problem of politics in this Province, I foresee  conflict. In addition to that there should  be a well defined ratio of support or assistance to railways, which we all admit,  are of the most vital importance to this  country. The government in its railway  policy of last session endeavored to establish a ratio of two to one as between  the Dominion and this Province. But  that may not be a correct ratio. In my  opinion it is far too low, considering all  the benefits the' Dominion derives from  railway construction in this Province, particularly in the matter of customs revenue. If the Province had  control of its own customs revenue, it  could   build   its   own   railways   without  outside assistance on nny railway policy it might choose to adopt, because  there has been recently nn excess of nearly one million dollars annually oyer what  iB received back in the form of expenditure from' tho Dominion. You will plainly see how our Interests nre affected by  such un iirrnngmcnL More thati 'that,  the government of this Province iu the  mntter of assisting railways is practically at the mercy of the Dominion as to  what companies it may contract with,  because if the Dominion Government  gives tt support tp a company or any par;  tlculnr scheme, the F'rovince Is practically  bound to recognize its choice or do'without railways. As none or fow of tlie important enterprises can he financed without Federal aid, it is self evident that the  two governments must agree, or, in other wprdB, if we want railways, we must  accept thir choice;' nnd bo in tho past all  engineering of railway charters and rail-  way 'deals has been carried on with a  view to the support of both governments.  ThtB is inevitable, and must continue to  be so under present conditions. The  possibility of conflict," however, is, always imminent; and while the Province  hns certain inherent rights pf eminent  domain, it is uncertain how far the right  of the Dominion extends in respect to  charters granted under its authority,  This is a grave question, and must be  settled. Moreover, the Dominion has,  under' the British North America Act  superior jurisdiction and can declare any  railway to be for the benefit of Cantda,  and assume control, even though it had  been built largely by provincial aid.  (government,TCallttnys.  See how this affects the question of  government ownership^ not to speak of  moral and real property rights. I am  not 'opposed as a matter of theory or  principle to government ownership of  railways. I can see how, under proper  management nnd under certain conditions, it is possible arid might evpn bp  beneficial. , I only regard thp .suggestion  as impracticable' under onr present, cpn-  ditions and present relations yrifh the _)o-  minion. If we nsspme that "sentiment  some day mny be consolidated in favor  cf government as ngninst private ownership, who would build nnd own them?  Tt would either hnvo to be the Province*  or the* Dominion. Both ennld not con  trol them, unless by SOME NEW AN1~)  MTJTUAL ARTtANGEMENT.' Tho poyl  ernment that owned the great  inter-provincial - lines would also  hnve to own " apd control the  small lines and feeders as well.  Nowadays. when the interchange  of traffic is essential to all railways on  a Inrge or small scale, the independence  of small lines on a paying basis" is out  of the question���������is impracticable. Wp  hnve nn'instance in the Island of -Vancouver in the Victoria and Sidney Railway, which'without any connection to  afford it more than local traffic can' never be made to pay, and-will continue  to be a burden to the province."--Therefore. I say. government ownership, "in  provinces, can never be brought within  the pnle of practical polities'.  A Deipane} "Will bo Mu.};;.  It is .necessary, therefore, in view of  the foregoing considerations, which I  submit are cogent and ��������� important, to  takp another step, nnd to approach the  Dominion Government, in no support of  of unfriendliness or antagonism, and ask  _ror_ajr_evisiqii_j>rjtoe_te!ms^  mosphere of dust I cannot deal in a letter outlining nnd reviewing tlie scope of  Government acts extending over a term  of years, except to say that taken Indi  vlduiilly and in the aggregate, tliey  fairly represent the measure nf the mci*  who'urc'conducting the Opposition fight  nnd a fitting employment for thpir peculiar talents for microscopical investigation. By their methods of scientific  enquiry the microbes, which we are told  exist In myrinilH iii nature, in us and all  around us, are madp to look like elephants and other giant creatures, and if  they could' only induce the electors to  look through their little glasses, they  would frighten them all into hysterics.  There are others of them with telescopes  sweeping the political heavens for .stray  comets and dead worlds, which threaten  to fall down and knock us into smither-  enes. I ask you like sensible men to  take a common sense and every day business view of political matters in British Columbia, and I am quite confident  that you  will  neither be disturbed  nor  alarmed.  ,,       i  Ono of Deployment.  I haye dealt in my speeches on the  floor of the House ~vith the public works  pf this province and our policy in relation thereto.   It has been one of development.   In ten years we have spent, independent of railway aid.some five millions  of   money   in   roads,   bridges,   wharves,  public   buildings,     hospitals,     charities,  egucatipn,, apd the like.   At the end of  the cpming   fiscal year,   we will   have  sppnt over six millions.   This does not  include  the    cost    of     the  parliament  buildings. -These  things   are   necessary.  They ���������    are     what the     people'   want  pnd       demand.      You        might        as  ~~~ell     try to     develope     this      province without'spending money-to open it  up in a variety of ways, as   for n farmer  tp make a farm pay   without first clearing,  fencing it, erecting buildings, etc.  We have here a province, 400,000 square  miles in extent, rug������k_. - iu > its .exteriorj  and divided into .geographical   sections  Which, must be connected' -by lines of  communication,  administered,  educateid,  protected,   populated.    It? means   that  in    order    "that    its    resources    maybe    made available    and'its    possibilities realized, we must spend large sums  of money, .here, there and ��������� everywhere.  We must first provide the facilities of intercourse and means of doing business  before business can be done.   That fact  in a word explains our -policy > of public  works and our financial position'at the  same time.    We cannot sit down' and  wait, Micawber-like,   for   something to  turn up before we act.    We must act  that ithings, may turn up.   We must'be  missionaries as well as administrators;  vfe must'be pioneers for the pioneer.   In  every jdistriot we are met with'demands.  Our i opponents who cry against the debt  incurred to meet these requirements, in  each district complain that money enough has not been spent.    Every Opop-  sition candidate strives to make you believe that the.government is extravagant  in every.other.constituency but'his' own  and in that he assures you, if elected, no  want would go unsupplied.and that every  grievance would be adjusted at any cost.  If, however, they  came to power with  a general policy of laissez faire, of curtailment ' of expenditure, of doing without public works rather than borrow, and  put it in force, you would soon realize  how greviously -you had been deceived,  and what false friends and false pro-  tion, particularly in -the matter of railways, or railway jurisdiction, and generally to review our interfinanclal relations.  It is proposed that delegates or representatives ot this government shall go to Ottawa at nn early day, and submit to the  authorities there somo of these considerations nnd perhaps others ns well. We  shall make railways the basis of negotiations. What we want, if not a revision, is an understanding which shall  form a compact, written and binding,  that our requirements nnd rights shall  be clearly defined and recognized. AA'e*  want better terms, we want fairer terms.  Xova Scotia when It found that the  bargain it had entered into and was  bound.by, failed to fulfil its expectations  and necessities, went to Ottawn, laid its  case beforo the* government, nnd obtained reelresH. So far from thnt action  disturbing the safety of Confederation  this recognition laid the foundation on a  firmer and more enduring basis. Manitoba has just come in for additional recognition; nud British Columbia's plea is  one of justice* and right and must  ultimately prevail. There is a misconception in the east as to the position  of British Columbia and its relations  to the Dominion, but the people ot  Eastern Canada only require to have  the case presented to them fairly and  fully   to   understand   and   acquiesce.  DDK POLICY OF PUBLIC WORKS.  And this naturally leads me to. the  consideration of our own Provincial  policy of public works and railway de-  velopmcnt- This, I mny say, associated  with the question of finance with which I  will deal presently, is the pith and kernel of our appeal to you, and the subject  which above all others requires attention. I am prepared to meet fairly and  squarely the Opposition critics in .ill  matters connected with our policy in  this respect. There are side issues and  trivial objections, which our opponents  will maintain 'and which they hold up to  the eyes of the electorate to confuse the  mind and obscure the wider and more  important questions of public policy.  With these political particles in an at-  phets they had been.  V  Not Timo to Stop Yot.  ������  Of course, a time must come .when  borrowing should cease, but thnt time  has not arrived yet. When the country  is well opened with railways as a farm  is with drains, when main roads have  been completed in the important settlements, when mining is developed, when,  in short, the effect of expenditure is being felt in new sources of, and expanding  revenue, then the income will meet our  expenditure, but until then it would be  folly to stop half-way and lose the benefits of what had already been done by  leaving it uncompleted.  Iiilliiciice on Ke.enue. In Kootenay.  I will refer presently to the government railway policy, but I wish to point  to Kootenay to show the influence of a  liberal expenditure on revenue, and we  mny reasonably anticipate that as Kootenny Ib only one of the many rich mining  districts in the province capable of similar results, the same beneficial effect will  be general. During ten years the government has spent (apart from railways)  in round numbers $600,000 in public  works, roads and trails, hospitals, etc.,  in Kootenay, East and West. In addition to that the following railways have  been assisted liberally: Columbia and  Kootenay, Nakusp and Slocan, Kaslo  and Slocnn, the Nelson and Fort Sheppard, the B. C. Southern, the Columbia  and Western. Mark now the advance in  revenue ns shown in the following takaa  from the public accounts.  1888 $ 26,425 08  1889     22,995 94  1890     48,995 94  1891     43,986 88  1892     67,465 49  1893     91,050 9T  1894     67,923 64  1895     82.100 58  1890   140,842 28  1897  348,804 03  $939,540 71  I need say no more to poiat to the wisdom of the course pursued and the possibility of nn equilibrium being soon es  tablished between revenue and expenditure.  A Clean Heeorel.  Borne complaint has been made about  the way we have expended the money in  the various districts. It is Btated that  we have wasted it, etc. Such a statement Is extraordinary from the fact  that in ten years, after scrupulous and  exacting criticism, the Opposition has  failed to point to one important Instance  iu which this has been established.  Five million dollars is a lot of money  to spend publicly and there are many  districts in which to expend it and a  a wide expent of country covered and a  variety of conditions to be taken into  consideration. It is strange that in all  that time the records of the House do not  show a single investigation or a proof establishing these statements. It ts true,  there have been many vague-assertions,  but a specific charge has never been  laid, or a specific wrong alleged. I defy the Opposition to come forward and  show it. Can any government in Canada  point to a? cleaner record? Surely in -be  face of this the Opposition to the* government should blush to repeat what they  have never had the courage to make  good on the floor of the House.  How tlio Money Is Spent.  With reference to the manner of expending road money, I will just say that  it is and always has been the policy ot the  government to expend lt in the district  by day labor, employing n._ fa- .is possible tbe people of the district, who are  thus enabled to reap the advantage doubly. It hns worked out well, and I see no  reason to change it. We have improved  the system, however, to this extent, by  appointing an engineer of Public Works  throughout the Province, under whose  supervision the whole will be carried on.  The Government has been fortunate in  securing for this' purpose, a gentleman  whose abilities as well as his experience  for ��������� a number, of years as resident engineer for the I)ominion, Government have eminently qpalified hiin for  that duty. Of coprse, those in  charge of works have sometimes made  mistakes anjl those who are employed  as ' contractors - and,. otherwise sometimes try to get ahead pf the government  but as'a rule I think onr Public Works  are efficiently and honestly carried out;  jind such haye been the aim and effort of  the Lands and Work's Department,  which though mnch abused, because it  is the great spending department of the  Proyince, is open to the most'rigid scrutiny^ both' as to its officials and its methods-' "  THE GOVKKXME~iT'S RAILWAY  !_.      POLICY.  The next thing for    consideration    in  connection with'public works is the railway policy of the government. Railways  arc the great essentials tb development  in all new countries," and'this is'p'articu-  lariy true df British'   Columbia.   It   has  always been recognized by everybody, to  have success,  to make and build  up a  Province  out  of materials  we' have' so  abundantly, we   must    have    railways.  The question has been how to get them.  When we started 'out the government of  the day adopted what    had    been    the  policy of other provinces and of the Dominion of Canada to subsidize by land  grants.   It was the only way we could  assist.    Our credit had not been established in the money markets.. We could  not give money, we had plenty of land,  ~-o"we -i~ad-rtergive"Inndr="In~thiB"way-the"  E. & N. Railway was built, and to this  policy is due the inauguration    of   the  splendid railway    facilities with    which  Kootenay is  now provided���������the Columbia & Western, the Knslo & Slocan, the  Columbia & Kootenay, the    Nelson    &  Fort Sheppard and the B. C. Southern.  Although the government had recognized  a policy of guarantee   of interest,   a departure was made on the building of the  Nakusp & Slocan.   This was the second  stage in the development of policy.   The  land system was good when there was no  better, but is open to objections, and although the land grants so far alienated  by railways contain-    no large extent of  arable   or   pastoral   lands   a   growing  sentiment   is   opposed     to     that     system, a fact which the government    recognized when it took the second step referred to.    But as stated in my speech  on the Public AVorks Loan Act, the system        necessarily       implies     an     in-  definiteness     and     uncertainty     as   to  the   amount   for   which   the   Province,  becomes liable; and with the experience  we  have  already     had   we  decided  to  adopt last year the policy of giving a direct   and   stated   amount  per   mile,   by  which an exact and  known  liability  is  assumed.     This     policy    assumes    two  things, which are admittedly true in our  present    circumstances:    (1)   That it is  necessary  to  assist    railways  in  order  that they may be built, and (2) that assistance is beneficial and results in a direct benefit and gives an  indirect   and  adequate return in the increase of the  revenue.   This year  we made a step further  ns  illustrated  in  the  Coast-Teslin  railway, and stipulated  for a share of  the proceeds.   To some extent, however,  the merits of every railway proposition  must be considered individually.      You  cannot in a country like British Columbia apply a hard and fast principle inasmuch as a different set of conditions surround srtid affect each proposition. Those  who imagine that some ideal railway policy can be evolved which will cause railways to be built spontaneously and without cost to the Province would find that  the problem is a gigantic one, and not  quite removed from the sphere of miracles. Railways cost money, especially in  ti couutry sparse in population and prolific in mountain ranges. Capital ia  stubborn and hard-headed, and when you  come to deal with it your theorists find  that theory is one thing and practical  railway building is another. You must  adapt your policy to your conditions,  your financial capabilities and the requirement- of the investing public. Experience is the best teacher, and we have  proceeded on the lines which experience  has dictated, profiting in each advance  by what has gone before. In the meantime construction has gone on and has  been even rapid. Our efforts have beon  successful in accomplishing what we set  out to perform, and the length of railways already constructed, and in course  of construction, and of-lines reasonably  in prospect and provided for, is over 1_-  600 miles. This ib a record of practically ten years. It is one to .which wa  can'poiut with some pride, and will be a  factor of the future development of th*  province, the potentiality of which neither you nor I can well estimate._.t the present time. I have previously pointed to  the remarkable way in which railway  construction has benefitted the Koote-  nayp, and the influence it has directly- ~  brought to bear on the revenues arising  out of those districts.  A Completing Link.  We have already provided an,arterial  system for British Columbia, which.whea  completed, will render the further assistance to railways'   unnecessary    as.th*  sources of traffic*  will 'have been provided so as to make further railway build-   '  ing self-sustaining.    In the", south rail-    ,  way faciiities are being liberally provid- '  ed and when the B. C. Southern and tb*  East Kootenay roads are completed, the  business   arising   out   of   the  great  development there will be of imense volume.    On the north the. line from the ~  coast to T-BiinT Lake, and the Cassiar'"  Central, which is now getting under way,  will, when opened foi- traffic, ensure an-'  other large volume'of traffic there.   Wa *  have   then   the   completing   link,   from  south to north through an immensely fertile   plateau,   to   construct.     AVith   the  traffic already in existence and the tributary lines from the coast at the south,  centre and north; that will b_ an uneter-  raking easy of accomplishment, and one    -  that capitalists will'take hold'of volun- "  tarily  as  affording  a  substantial  profit     '  und immense returns.  PKOVINCIAJL -FlNANCe. s  Closely associated with the subject of   K  public works and railway development is  that of finance.* In 1887, when I had the  honour of being called to the Cahin'et'as  Aiiniiter of-Finance, 1 began to'eiiqulii  into  and  consider heriously  th'e advisability of re-organizing   the system of obtaining loans." At that time, as yp'u axe  aware, the money required to be borrowed  from  time tb time was" obtained by  individual loans on conditions similnr to  those upon which municipalities and" corporations issue their    debentures,    each"  loan  being issued -without reference to  any   system  or  to   any  previous' loan's.  As the result or my enquiries, and acting  upon the best financial advice of finim--  cieru in London, an  Act was pas'sed authorizing the issue of 3 per cent, inscriti*.  stock.   This action of    the   government  was very much criticised and the government wus    severely    blamed    for    two  things: First,   for  not  issuing  stock  at '  par; and secondly, for paying a certain .  amoun_-as-p_enii_m-for-the-purpose=-1o_"'--  securing the conversion of loans already  iu  existence,  carrying a higher rate of  interest.   I   have  already   oil   numerous  occasions in my Budget Speeches in the   -  Legislature, and in addressing the electors    fully    explained    the    advantages  arising out of this financial policy, which "  was really borrowed from Great Britain0  herself, the example having been set by  the great Chancellor' of the Excbeqaer  Mr. Goschen.   Iu  Great Britain no one  question!,  the  wibdoni  of such  a policy,  because the public men of that country  understand   and   appreciate   its   importance.   In British Columbia it was goner-  ally accepted with satisfaction    at   the  time, and I do not know that any person  since- that time- has put forth any valid  reasons why we should return to the old  system, or why, in fact, we should not  have adopted the present one; but there  have    been certain    of our    opponent*  whose assumed knowledge of finance* h_e  warranted them in raising the objections,  referred to. ^  Pruclleal Henvflti Ui-ri.ed.  The result of adopting the policy of la-  suing inscribed stock and of conversion,  predicted by myself when it was decided upon, has been fully realised. What  was then maintained was that the Province would reap a very, great permanent benefit by having its stock listed la  the money markets of the world In establishing its credit on a permanent b������^ .  sis, and lowering the general rate of Interest. It was recognized then that ia  order to carry out the great enterprise*  which the development of the Province  would render imperative, it would be  necessary from, time to time to go to tha  money markets to r&Lse large sum* at  money for this purpose, which, from that  time forward could be obtained'on much  more favorable terms. The loan of 1881  was issued at 86, or a discount of 14 per  cent.. This at the time when the province had practically no credit and wm  little known outside of the Dominion of  ,Cf,  Canada, wns the beet that could be"  done, and was at that time considered a  most   successful   loan.   In   1893   deb-*- tare* were issued at 91, and in 1S95 the  $2,000,000 loan was floated at 95. Thus  we see that notwithstanding the debt had  been materially increased Ln that time,  the credit of the Province had gone  steadily up, and that the rate of discount had been correspondingly reduced; or in other words, while the discount  on the first loan issued on tlie inscribed  stock principle was 14 per cent, and tlie*  net rate of interest was".'. 5-S per cent,  in 1S05 the rate of discount had fallen  to 5 per cent., anel the net rate of interest to 3 1-10 per cent., and tlie cost of  floating the loan in the latter instance  was 3 3-10 per cent., whicli included nil  charge in connection therewith, including those of underwriting.  Con version of Old   Loan,..  As to the cost of conversion, this was  lendered advisable from finnncial considerations, from the fact that the larger  the amount of inscribed stock that  could be placed upon the market, the  more favourably would investors regard  It, ard iu this way it wns possible* to  place a sufficient sum on the market to  render the operation a success. In order  to deal in the money markets of the  world it must be understood :hnt there  are certain conditions governing investments, and the larger the sum to be  placed is the easier it is to finance,  provided always, of course, the security  is good. You all know that in London,  or in any of the other large money cent-  tres, only large propositions are entertained, nnd the larger the amount of  stock that can be placed on the market  at once the better are its chances for  success. For instance, if you go to London and endeavor to float a company, the  capital of which is only $50,000 or $100,-  000 the chances are, no matter how good,  intrinsically the scheme may be, you  woald only be laughed at for your pains,  while one requiring from 250,000  pounds to 1,000,000 pounds would be seriously considered, if not taken up. The  conditions which affect government  loans are precisely similar, and it is for  this reason, and upon the advice of the  best financial men in London that the  - schemeof conversion was undertaken. It  was successful in achieving the object  we had in view, and when we had attained that conversion ceased and the  balance of the old loans will be allowed  to  mature.  Credit Firmly ~_~stn~>li>-hcd.  I have already, I think, as on previous  occasions, clearly indicated the advantages to the Province through inscribed  stock and the conversion of the debt,  ' and our best informed critics are forced  to admit that the policy is a sound one,  but affect to question some of the details. The financial credit of the province has been placed on a sound and permanent basis, and as already been  shown has steadily advanced since 1891,  each succeeding loan being placed on  more advantageous terms. At the present time the British Columbia securities are quoted at from 103 to 104, indicating a great degree of confidence on tlie  part of investors, and ranking our 3 per  cent ins-cribed stock with the best Colonial securities. This I contend is a  most creditable position for British Columbia to occupy and is one which  would not be possible had it not been  that our financial policy had been reorganized. We can go on from this out  and borrow all the money we require for  purposes of development at a large annual saving to the Province, and if this  government had done nothing more to  warrant the support of the electorate I  submit that this result would have been  sufficient to entitle it to most favorable  consideration at the hands of the elector-  -iie.- = =*=-=-=���������������������������  -=���������-  sary and expedient and are reproductive.  A new country is like a. new farm���������it  requires improving before it can be made  to pay. Its revenue is steadily increasing. Iu 1S77 it wns $40S,000, in 1887  $608,000 and in 1897 it wns $1,383,00.  Our expenditure' hus increased in about  the same proportion, but in that time we  have spent large sums for public works,  which for the Inst ten years has been  about $3,500,000, not including the cost  of the parliament buildings or railways.  As u matter of fact, our ordinary revenue* exceeds our ordinary expenditure,  which the following statement shows:  Revenue, 1S90-97. ,  Revenue, 188G-S7   Increase, 253 per cent.  Expenditure, 1S96-97   Public AA'orks     , .$1,383,048  ..     540,398  .$   842,050  , .$1,569,071  ..     519,164  Expenditure less public works$l,049,907  Revenue   1,049,907  Balance excess of expenditure.? 333,141  Allowing $200,000 as ordinary expenditure on public works, it would leave a  surplus of $133,141 of revenue over expenditure for 1896-97.  Tlie Inllneiice of Mining.  I have already pointed to the influence  o'f public works and railways in affecting the revenue from Kootenay district,  which in the last two years alone contributed nearly half a million dollars. In  all the mining districts similar results  will follow. Kootenay so far is practically the only producing district, but  in Boundary and throughout Yale, in  Lillooet, in Cnriboo, in Harrison Lake  district, in Vancouver Island, up the  Coast, and in Omineca and Cassiar extensive development is going on and in  e-nch of these there is every reason to believe there will be results comparable with  what we have in Kootenay to-day. The  effect on the revenue, if at all comparable, and we have no reason to assume  it will not be, must in the aggregate  place the finances of the.province in an  eminently satisfactory condition before  long. We nre simply adopting the old-  fashioned fisherman's policy of throwing  a sprat to catch a mackerel.  Additional SouTr.cs of "Revenue.  We must not forget, however, that  population and development bring with  them enlarged responsibilities, increased  expenditure. Are there any. increased  sources of revenue provided? I have  been speaking so far of the revenues  which ordinary arise. In the increase of  population we have what is known as  the head-tax, or "revenue tax." We  may assume that by the next census  taking the population will have increased  to 250,000, or an increase of 150,000  in ten years. That means at least $100,-  000 more under the above head per annum than in 1891. This annually increases with population. We have also  the allowance from the Dominion of 80c  per head, which is another $100,000 per  annum after 1901. The mineral tax will  be $50,000 more per annum at least by  that time.  In addition to all this, however, the  government has had in view new sources  of revenue of an important character. It  has1 not been unmindful of the fact that  the extraordinary development required  within the next few years to give a  proper' impetus to mining and other industries involves an increase of liability  which  it  is   necesary to provide for so as  if you prefer it that way. Taking the  average, however, and I have a personal knowledge of most of them, I think  the civil service of British Columbia  compares favorably with that of any  other civil service, man -for man, in industry, efficiency and general character.  I know of uo one at A'ictoria who is not  fully employed and with whose services,  consistent with requirements of the  service, we could dispense without at  least replacing him. The work is constantly increasing in ull departments,  and we are alwuys, if anything, a little  behind insted of ahead of the requirements in that respect. In the whole service in British Columbia, I do not believe that we could dispense with half  a dozen men out of the several hundred  without as I say, replacing them. I am,  pleased to bear testimony to their general efficiency, courtesy nnd "good work.  The only reasonable criticism is one that  has not occurred to the Oposition, and  that is to my mind the lack of a system  of gradation and regular promotion,  which is now beginning to be felt owing to the increase of numbers. Several years ago the government had decided  on a measure of this kind, combined with  a plan of insurance, but it was found  difficult in so limited a service as it then  was to apply a general and rigid system,  and especially to the outside service, the  largest by far, in whicli the conditions  and requirements differ so materially in  different districts; and the matter was  allowed to drop; but in a very short  time, if, indeed the time is not already  ripe for it, it will require to be considered again.  THK RK_.ISTRH_-T.TIO>.- ACT.  Coming now to the question of redistribution, although we heard a great  deal about it in the House, when the  fighting men of the Opposition were playing heroes to the "gods," we do not  hear so much about it at present. The  strange feature about it is that the redistribution measure of 1894, which was  so roundly abused at the time, was  strongly eulogized by the Opposition in  1898. Now, practically speaking, the redistribution Act of 1898 in no way m_v-  terial alters the principles laid down in  that of 1894, which has been declared  by the Opposition in the House to  be a just and equitable measure. Practically, the same conditions exist now as  did then, and no material revision was  necessary. Kootenay in the meantime  had grown to be an important and populous district and it was proper that  it should have increased representation.  Three new members were added. Vancouver had grown to be on a parity  with Victoria and was given an additional member accordingly. The only  other place in which conditions had altered was Cassiar. Last year and this,  owing to the Yukon excitement, attention has been sudenly attracted to that  vast district, which is 165,000 square  miles in extent, and which has a great  .variety of rich resources. Although  from the distance from the centre of administration it is difficult, if not impossible, to get the names of voters there,  there are nevertheless several thousand  people scattered throughout its extent,  nnd with two important railways to be  undertaken it is almost - certain that  thousands more will be there before long.  In addition to these thousands of returning  Yukon  miners   will   spread  over  it  as it would to some degree at least a  new departure, and to some extent a reorganization of the present system. I  mention this here, not as an issue in the  campaign or necessarily an nditional ren-  cannot now ask you to elect me on a  policy, the principle of which is unknown to you, but to show you that  ihe govi'riinieiir is fully alive id its responsibilities and the considerations  which affect the future financial policy  of the country are not being lost sight of.  Tin-; civn,  .kiivjck.  The _S"e\v T.o.'iu.  With reference to the new loan to the  amount of $5,000,000, which the government has obtained authority to issue, I  may say that this large sum will not be  all required at once, but only as the  works to which it is intended to apply  are undertaken and proceeded with. It  is satisfactory to know, too, that the  prospects of new loans to that amount,  if required, are excellent. . I have already had a number of enquiries for a  prospectus from uie-a representing large |  financial firms, so lhat we may reasonably expect that the amount placed on  the market will be taken up several  times over.  lie- .-nil.- :i:i.:   I. . -i.-li.II-. tir-*.  ��������� A word as io the condition of the finances in respect to revenue and expenditure. The Opposition speak about the  "deficits" of the government, and the  '~mpi~-_���������ioii is sought to be left on y..ur  minds that the ordinary revenue is not  equal to the ordinary expenditure. This  is wholly erroneous. The excess of expenditure over revenue is uot of the nature of a deficit as that term is ordinarily applied. Let me explain. If a  farmer's receipts from the ordinary operations of his farm arenot equal to his  ordinary expenses in the way of ploughing, sowing, reaping, etc.yhe is going behind. He has a "deficit," but if in the . sidered a fair target. An Oposition irr  course of the improvements and develop- , variably finds fault with it. In the ab-  ment of his farm in order to make it ��������� se-nce of anything else or in addition to  capable of the best results he expends i all other things, it is always in order  a lot of, money on reproductive work , to abuse it. I may say here that in the  such a.s draining, fencing and building, absence of any specific charges of in-  for which he borrows money, and this ', competency or malfeasance or without  ', extends over a period of years, all the' knowledge really of the duties to be pcr-  while paying interest, he iB not necessar-j formed, this is a very cowardly and un-  iiy losing money. ' If, on the other hand, I just course to pursue, because necesaar-  though going into debt annually for some ! iiy the members of the service are an-  time, his receipts are yearly growing J able to defend thmselves, and are de  larger and are greater than his ordinary j barred from "talking back." TheJ  expenditure, outside of improvements, he j eun only be defended in the House,  is really making money, and has each j where care is taken not to make the  year a corresponding surplus. Now, {'charges, by members of the government  this is exactly the position of the Province. It is spending annually large  sums of money in opening up the country, in roads, trails, bridges, school  houses, public buildings, assisting railways and ao on, which things are neces-  nnd important interests will be repre-  to preserve the* equilibrium between re- sented and new industries started.

I  have had J of the special conditions existing there.by . erally the British constitution wherever  under  consideration  and  I  hope  to ' be j no means represent what is  there and in- | in  force, though liberal  in the enlarge-  uble-to-lay^before-the-neit-Legislature.^fiuiteiy-iess-than^whair^^  if I am spared as Finance Minister,    a I a year or two.    To apply a rule of re- i eges once granted as sacred and rightly  white population of the Island and  Mainland, according to the census, axe  respectively 27,500 and 37,500. Comparatively speaking, the same relative conditions exist in both. Therefore, un exact proportion of representation on that  basis is the fairest settlement of a question iuto which sectionul feeling has undoubtedly entered to a very large extent, one which has, in fact, been constituted thereby. It settles a long standing  grievance, but no sooner was a bill  brought dowu satisfying the conditions  of equality than the government was  charged with sectionul ism, us though  the better way, the just way, to obliterate sectionalism altogether, were not to  remove the cause. In doing this ihe IB-  laud has given up two members, the  Mainland has guined two. The real  grievance of Mr. Brown now is that he  has no longer reason to kick. He has  lost his only plank and is floundering in  the sea.  Precedent in Confederation.  " Some fault has been found because  Esquimau still retains two members. *  * * There is a principle obtainiug  here which has been observed in redistribution measures in Canada and' in'  England, and- which applies to several  constituencies both on the Island and on  the Mainland. It has had general recognition throughout the Empire in matters of representation.  "At the time of Confederation in Canada,' so, serious a matter as representation had,' it is needless to say, careful  consideration, and tn_ principle to  which we refer, was recognized to such  a degree as to be embodied in the Articles, which we quote as follows:  "'(4.) On any such re-adjustment the  number of members for a province shall  not be reduced unless the proportion  which the number" of the population of  the province bear to the number of the  aggregate population of Canada at the  then last preceding readjustment of the  number of members for the province is  ascertained at the latest census to be diminished by one-twentieth part or upwards.'  "'(4) Such readjustment shall not take  effect until the termination of the then  existing parliament."  " '(52.) The number of members of the  House of Commons may be from time to  time increased" by the parliament of  Canada, provided the proportionate representation of the provinces prescribed by this Act is not thereby disturbed.'  Recognized Throughout the Umpire.  " It is almost a maxim of government  that the right of franchise onee granted  to an individual should never be taken  away except for extraordinary reasons.  What is true of the unit is true of the  community. In other words, representation in a sense becomes a vested right,  which is only interfered with or lessened  by reason of materially altered circumstances. As we have shown, representation in Canada is only permitted to be  restricted when a material reduction in  population takes plnce, such as we see illustrated in the case of Cariboo. Quebec province, so jealous was it of its ancient rights and privileges, stipulated for  a fixed representation, one that could  not be* altered, and the Fathers of Confederation, recognizing the safe principle  we have adverted to, adopted it, and  Quebec, the oldest and primordial unit  of Canada, became the standard upon  which the representation of the other  and newer provinces was based. If we  go to Great Britain we find that principle has been respected.    Speaking gen-  action and the verdict of the people of  the Province as to whether I have prostituted or am capable of prostituting a  public trust for private and mercenary  purposes. In taking the position I did  so, not without enquiry ub to the personnel and objects of the companies and  us a right to which my public oflice was  no bar, or with which it was not inconsistent or incompatible. If my name was  in any way improperly used it was without my knowledge or authority. The  Opposition press hus quoted with great  cage-moss extracts from English papers  on the subject, which they are still par-  udiug as campaign literature. I just  submit for their consideration un extract  from the proceedings of the Imperial  parliament, taken from the London  Daily Times:  "Mr. Field (Dublin, St. Patrick's) asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether he would grant a return of the  members of the House who were directors of one or more public companies.  "Mr. Balfour���������I do not think anything  would be gained by such a return.  "Mr. MacNeill (Donegal, S.) asked tlie  right hon. gentleman whether he was  aware that 23 ministers divided 47 directorates amongst them.  "Mr. Balfour���������No, I am not aware of  that."  I had not intended- during the time  that this matter was before the courts  to have referred to it, but the indecency  with which the Opposition disregarded  the law in this respect compels me to refer to it. ���������  The Mortgage Tax.  Another matter that has been persistently kept before the electors is the mortgage tax, and upon this question the Opposition is appealing for support on account of its proposal to abolish the  tax on mortgages, altogether. There is  anything between $15,000,000 and $25,-  000,000 invested in mortgages in this  Province, which under this proposal,  would escape taxation entirely, and  the Province would lose $60,000 in revenue. There is a great deal of confusion in the minds of many persons regarding the nature' of the tax on mortgages. There is in the assessment act  specifically no tax on mortgages. A  mortgage is simply one form of  personal property and as such is  liable to be' assessed. In all the provinces, in all the states of the Union,  and in Great Britain this rule obtains.  Mortgages are nowhere exempt. They  constitute a form of tapital that should  above all others b*e ma.Se to pay', because, it is not productive and earns a  safe dividend. It is not, therefore, a  question of whether mortgages should  pay. taxes or not, because there, can be  no question as to that; but as to how the  government should proceed in order that  the man upon whom the tax is  levied and who, it is the ' intention ��������� of - the Act, should ' pay  and not the borrower. No other subject has had more serious consideration than this at the hands of the government, which recognizes that in many  cases it leads to a hardship. For the  purpose of*obtaining all the possible data  on the subject and a report that may  lead to a solution of the incidence of  taxation falling on the wrong shoulders  ���������though, of course, no one borrowing  money can be made to pay it without  first' agreeing voluntarily to do so���������has  been referred among other matters to a  commission, as the result of which, judging from its personnel, I think you will  agree with me in saying there ought to  bo much light thrown .on the whole matter and a useful report received.

Any  , changes that nre made are effected with  , gTeat caution and only when circum-  , stances and  conditions have so altered  Alien labor is another, question, which  has come prominently to the front. The  government, though it sympathizes with  the sentiment in favor of retaining the  home market for home and white labor,  regards this, owing to the constitutional  considerations involved, as an open question. The government believes in all  public works, so far as possible being  carried  on  by our  citizens,  and   in all  -liners' Licenses .  The question of miners' licenses is another that has had the very serious consideration of the government. It is, understand, as in the ense of the mortgage  tax, one which has always been in existence in British Columbia, and for which  this government is not in any way responsible, as you'would be led to believe*.  This government lias simply not ulicreel  the luw, that is all. It was announced  some time ago that this tax on working miners iu metalliferous mines woulel  be taken off, but it great deal of opposition was raised, on the ground that the  inujority of tlie miners in the new districts, many of whom, by the* way, are  prospectors aud claim owners us we'll,  nre not British subjects, and while earning a livelihood and having all the advantages of citizenship, would contribute*  practically nothing to the revenues of  the country. This is something the force  of which cannot bo denied. I .am willing  te) admit the justice of there being no  distinction among working miners of  any class, and the government is disposed to place all on equal footing us  soon as it.can see its way clear to do so.  The government will endeavor to so adjust the matter, keeping in mind the objection which has already been referred  to, as to meet the whole requirements of  lhe case. It is a matter surrounded with  some difficulties; but can, I believe, bo  remedied satisfactorily. Bear in mind  that the miners of Kootenay have not  jisked to have this tax taken off; in fact,  tliere were strong representations made  that they desired to hnve it left on. They  did not object to the tax, as they wish  the privileges of locating and recording  claims; but they do object to the working  miners in the coal mines being exempted. There is a good deal of difference,  however, after all, between metalliferous  mining and coal mining, nnd the privilege of locating and recording claims,  which is valuable to those engaged in  one is totally useless to the oilier. There  is really a new condition of affairs we  have to deal with, now tliat mining hus  developed, into a permanent industry,  and it is one with which former governments have not hod to deal.  IMPORTANT INTKRESTS.  I have'not so far dealt specifically with  the many important interests which have  had the consideration of tlie government  for a number of-years���������such as mining,  agriculture, labor, etc., etc. Concerning  these I have but to say tliat the legislation affecting them is before you in the  statute books, and it is with pleasure that  1 can^ point to the fact that in each of  these the -government has adopted tlie  most advanced and practical measures  that are anywhere to be found in opera-  lion on tliis continent. In some important  respects' we have set tlie pace for the  rest of the Dominion.  Mining anel Mining: La-vrK.

If it were a question  j alone affecting the Chinese the difficulty  civil service, I may say, is always con  responsible for their conduct. Now, the  civil service is a body of men, like all  other bodies of men, made I up of individuals varying in character and in degree of qualifications. Some are better  than   others  or  not  so  good   as  others,  have been abused most virulently  ditions of inequality in this respect as-nnd persistently for my connection with  the result of development in recent j onf. or two English companies organize*]  years which threw the preponderance of j for the development of the Yukon trade  population   on   the   Mainland.

Sit\ ��������� ot using my position and my ! ted to infringe on treaty rights that the  Brown   proposes  to make  the Cascades i influence     to     assist     them���������of     even  would not be so great, although the  whole; subject is one for judicial reference, but in denling with the Japanese  it is dealing with a nation that Is recognized nh civilized and whatever may be  the dividing line, but what is nnel hits al-   taking  ways been regarded as the natural dividing line is the Gulf of Georgia. The  two large and distinct sections of the  province, geographical and political, are  the 'MainlnncI and the Island. Politically this division hnd its root in the early  history of the province, or rather of the  provinces, because A'ancouver Island  and British Columbia were originally  separate Crown Colonies, nnel this distinction has been continued more or less.  It is conditions tliat actually exist that  we must face, not those' which might  be.   Speaking    in    round    numbers the  advantage* of secret knowledge which I possessed as a  member of the Executive to further their  interests and my own. I cannot deal  with this matter as I would like to, owing to it being before the courts, having  taken a course to which I was compelled  to place my detainers where they would  be compelled either to prove their statements or stand before the public in tlieir  true light. In the meantime I can only  sny that I have lived long enough in  British Columbia and am sufficiently  well known in private and public life to  abide  in  confidence  the  result  of  thnt  Imperial Government is bound to respect and maintain. I trust that the  constitutional limitations of the Provincial legislature will shortly be strictly defined, nntl that the whole subject may be  cleared up. Of this you may be assured  that so far as in the power of the province lies the rights and interests of labor will be upheld. Upon that score  the legislative enactments on our statute-  books will compare favorably with those  of any other province or part of the  Dominion or Empire. There is absolute  equality established under the law and  every right and Interact are __lly protected.   ' ������  '..?''  Agricultural Legislation.  1 have be*e*ii accused of having made  a "hobby" of finance by a leading member ot the opposition, the editor of the  News-Advertiser, who states that n man  with a "hobby" is dangerous. Well, 1  never regarded it ns n bud thing at all  lo have ti "hobby." I never knew a man  ye*t to succeed in anything who diel not  make il a hobby; and if tiie gentleman  referred to congratulates himself upon  his own failures arising from his luck of  one, he is welcome lo the consolation the  fact affords him. I wns going to say,  however, thnt if I hud a hobby other  Ihnn finance' it was tiie development of  agricultural interests in this Province;  and let ine* say here that in the attention whicli has been paid to agriculture in  British Columbia and the practical legislation nnil administration affecting it,  this province is clearly abend of the other provinces and fully abreast of the  limes. I claim without fear of contradiction that tlie* present interest which bus  been manifested among our farmers in  their profession and the improved methods coining in vogue are* a direct result  of efforts tiie government has put forth.  In tliu assistance given to agricultural  societies; in aiding and encouraging the  I'ruit Growers', Flockmasters' and  Dairying Associations, in establishing a  Department of Agriculture, a Board of  Horticulture for educational and  protective purposes, and Farmers'  Institutes, and our most recent  act in providing for Agricultural  Credit Associations and travelling  libraries, a practical impetus has  he-en given to the industry, and u far-  reaching influence will be* exercised in  its future. Take tbe Board of Horticulture alone, and it has saved many thousands of dollars to the farmers in the rigid  system of quarantine established, and  will be productive of many thousands  more in the practical assistance that its  members have rendered to farmers. If  other provinces had instituted a similar  system it would not have been necessary  for tho Dominion government to have  stopped the importation of nursery stock,  which, though it may be necessary for  the rest of Canada, is much to the detriment of British Columbia at the present time*.  Cheap Money anil Farmero.' Institutes.  In the* Farmers' Institutes a system  has been established which is highly appreciated aud is doing great good. By  tlie act providing for Agricultural Credit  Associations, a system largely borrowed  from Europe, where* it has proved to be  eminently successful 'and whereby the  moans it has at hand for obtainiug money  for purposes of development ut low interest, tending to greatly cheapen the general rate, the government hns taken a  lung step forward uud has set an example  to the whole continent. The Opposition,  in its efforts to weaken the cause of  cheap money refer to it as "political humbug." lt is significant, however, that  they did not dare to oppose it in the  HouBe, though they did their best to render it inoperative by introducing amendments that if udopted would have made  it useless. If it was "humbug" it was  their duty to have opposed it. 1 may say  that I w.as never more earnest or sincere in any public measure than in my  endeavor to find a practical solution of  the problem of "cheap money" as it is  called, and 1 am fully'impressed with-  the importance of the effort that hns been  made. No community had ever a better  opportunity than the farmers of British  Columbia now have to get money at practically government rates. The machinery is there to take hold of, and it rests  with the farmers themselves. If the  principle of co-operation is not accepted  and acted upon, the government cannot  be blamed. It is a new departure upon  this continent, and will be a matter of  slow growth; but if the system has stood  the test of half a century in Europe,  having attained to enormous proportions,  then it should stand the test here.  An Agricultural Commission.  There are a number of other subjects  problems of agriculture���������irrigation, the  mortgage tax,  cold. storage, etc.,  which  have been referred to a commission, composed of two. men, whose position in relation to agricultural matters, and whose  abilities   as farmers must command th*  respect of all;  aud their selection will,   ������������������  in the judgment of all who know them,"  be the best guarantee that the government intends to deal seriously and earn-  "  estly with the subjects assigned to them  for investigation.   Mjire I need not say.  Lalior Laws.  In respect to labor interests, I can only  ,  repeat in other words what I have already stated when referring to the Alien  law.    No necessary measure of .p'roteo-" -  tion in the rights to which every man is "'  entitled in pursuing his avocations of life  has been denied.    Not only do tlie many  measures on the statute book testify to  that, but tlie satisfactory relations which  exist between the employer and employed  iu this province is proof of it.  BRITISH  COLUMBIA WISLL  OOVJiR-TUI).  It is unnecessary here to refer to our  municipal code, to the administration'of  justice, to the efficient system and high  standard of education in the Province,  to the laws whicli govern'nnd affect personal and property rights or the high,  moral status of every community. These -  are well established in the good opinion  of our own citizens and in the outside  world ns well.  All_tliese are considerations which in  a campaign of abuse and partizan opposition are lost sight of or studiously ignored by the opponents of the government. They are mutters, however, for  tbe electors to seriously consider, and  considerations which induce the government to confidently seek their support'  and renewal of confidence. I sny unhesitatingly that British Columbia is one of  the best governed of the provinces today in all matters affecting the inter- -  ests of its citizens.  j\   I'AHTY WITHOUT.A   POLICY.  There bus not been throughout this  campaign a single detail of policy enunciated by the Opposition. They claim  to have a platform wilh numerous  planks; but, I am open to contradiction  when I say thnt, beyond the most virulent abuse* unel extravagant criticism of  what the government has done, there has  not been n single* and wcll-tlefincd statement of how the Opposition would hav*  dealt with any of the many important  mutters that have been dealt with by the  government, had they been in power; or"  how they propose to deal with any other  matters that are now before or may  come before the country in the near future. If this may not be true I challenge the production in tangible form of  an unswer. If it be true, then I ask you  to accept the Opposition protestations at  their true value.  In concluding my remarks to you, necessarily of a lengthened character, I  make not personal appeals for support. I  have been just ten years in public life  as a minister of the Crown and as your  servant in assisting in administering  your affairs; and if in your opinion I  have executed that trust faithfully I only request that you will continue to extend the confidence, reposed in me and in  the administration of which I have the-  honor to be leader, for so ^ong, for still  another term; aud I shall, as iu the past,  endeavor to fulfill the duties pertaini-ig  to my office to the best of my ability in  your interests and to your satisfaction.  I am, Gentlemen and Electors,  Yours faithfully,  J. H. TUBNER.
