But to  lako a " bike" on a fine summer's elay  and enjoy a few hours on lhe many  good roads in and about the town,  gives one an entirely different impression. After crossing the. bridge over  the Kicking Horse, near the station,  over which a spur line runs down to  the Columbia. River Lumber Co.'s mills  and also lo the bout landing, one cannot he'lp but stop anel admire lhe comfortable homes, with tlieir groves,  lawns", flower gardens, running' vines,  and even boulevards, and envy them  in having a horse and carriage or bicycles, which they seem to enjoy every  evening, driving, riding; etc. The  young men, too, must find Golden a  "pick-up" as the young ladies hy far  outmiiiiber the opposite sex. Passing  em for about a mile out - on the Fort  Steele stage road, a beautiful lake  hoves in sight. Here, with the kind  permission of Mining Recorder Lang  or Mr. McDermott, one is treated to ii  boat ride and a good swiin,too,if so de-  sired. In every direction from Golden  there are very productive.farms, even  equal to some you might find in older  farming districts. The lumbering  industry is carried on extensively.'and  looks very promising for the future.  A Hkiiald man was shown by  Mining Recorder Lang some hanelsoufe  as well us vulliable ore exhibits, which  he lias stored away in a. neat-looking  mineral cabinet, _the background of  which is black' velvet, trimmed with  pebbled galena ore borders and otherwise neatly arranged. Every sample  is labelled anel put under their respective headings-and aft'ords travellers coining in or passing through  that district that are not, iicejuainted  with the products eif Golden in tliis  line ."i practical ielea of the riches  that  must   lie   hidden   in    the.   hills.  Extensive development and assessment work is being curried ' on,  a few companies and nionied men are  looking over various properties and  everything from a busiuess standpoint  is nil that ciinld lie ' expected.  The property owners are painfully  tired of giving bunds and options  which has for so long ' retureleel  development in every portion of the  province'tind have come to the conclusion that their properties .-ire  promising enough to demand transportation-facilities at an early'date, so  Ihey will wait, eloin'g what they can  themselves - in the meantime. Once  Gulden's ore sampies have been examined thoroughly hy practical mining  men tliey. cannot help hut make  further inquiries .nd become thoroughly interested in the district. The  town of Golden is neatly situated on  an open valley flat, where the C.P.R.  crosses the Columbia river going west  nnd is a splendid location for a' town-  site.hut it is unfoi .uuatethatit was not  a little higher. There are a number of  stores, hotels, business houses, etc.,  and H. G. PiiwsonJ~'the proprietor of  the largest and must complete general  store in the the town, informed a  Hekald representative that- all the.  businessmen .were, doing "well and that  that town was 1 lie~~siipply~an~d���������outfit-"  ting point for northeast Kootenay.

Bourne Bros.  THOMSOH^ LANDING  Mining  and  Ceneral   News   From  the  Gateway to Lardeau.  Thomson's Landing, August 29���������  Mrs. Conk, wife of H. A. Cook, who  keeps an hotel near Armstrong lake,  about four miles out on tho Trout Lake  wagon I'oad, arrived on Tueselay from  ���������Windsor, Ont., and left for her "future  home the same day.  Forest fires are raging at various  points north, east, and west, of here.  Out on the Troul Lake road there is  considerable ob-struclion on account of  big trees being burned out ab the base  and fulling across the road. And the  telephone wire is lying in the dust for  soiuetlislaue'c.  R. VV. Northey, formerly of the  Rossland Times anil the Kootenay  Mail, came in on Tuesday and left next  day for Trout Lake and Ferguson to  examine some mining properties in  which lie is interested, and also to look  at one or two others in behalf of ti  Toronto Syndicate. Mr. Northey returned to "the Laniling on Thursday  and left for Arrow head and Revelstoke  Friday morning. He speaks, very  highly of the Lardeau as a mining  country and .says it has a magnificent  future. He visited the. Great Northern, Silver Queen and several other  well known properties, nnel thinks  they are not being worked in the very  best manner. All these propel ties are  tunnel propositions and Mr. Northey  says the owners should go deeper on  their leads hy sinking shafts. The'ore  he says is very good looking stuff, but  not as good as it will he 100 feet deeper.  A lot nf assessment work is being  done in the vicinity eif the Landing.  Ferguson and Trout Lake anel shots  cnu be beard from the ^various mountains at all hours of tbe day,  Mr. Dnucet, the C. P. R. surveyor,  and men have moved c.'tinp to within  three miles of Trout Lake.  Several mining men from outside  points have been visiting the various  camps recently and Ihey all appear to  be well satisfied with the shewing of  the claims.  One great drawback in carrying out  a ileal in mining property in the Trout  Lake district   is   the   fancy price the  owners generally  erty.  HON. MR. FOSTER'S TRIP  He   Gives   a   Flourishing    Report    of  Conditions in the West  Hon. Geo. E. Foster. ex-Minister of  Finance fur llie Dominion, passed  through Winnipeg on Saturday en  route east, reluming from a combination business and pleasure trip  through the west during which lie  took occasion to address several political meetings. Seen at the station  by a reporter, Mr. Foster, saiel: "1  found the west flourishing. Business  in the mining regions is now down to  a practical basis anel ullliniigli there  are some who are not doing well, the  great majority of the miners unmaking, money. The recent s.ilo of  the Centre Star mine fur $2,000,001)  shews that tho country is proving rich  and valuable. The Crow's Nest Pass  railway which will he through to  Kootenay lake by the first of November, if the present rate of construction  is continued, will make a viist improvement in the country and its  prospects. It forms a direct and cheap  outlet for lhe products of the mines as  well as an inlet for supplies the mines  req uire."  DEVELOPING CAPITAL  Col. Ansley, chnirman of the British  Columbia Goldfields Co.. J.D. Graham,  manager in this province, and Mr.  Hazel, initio superintendent for the  same company, returned from a visit,  up the coast by the Comoxrni Sunday.  They have examined several mining  properties already owneel by the company and it depends in a great measure on Mr. Hazel's repoit whether  they will be developed or not. Mr.  Graham, ir. conversation with it Worlel  reporter, said that he was, anxious if  possible, that his company should  operate some of its coast claims, if for  no either leason iliaii that Ihey were  in a fine situation to ship ore  with light transportation charges. ^ Ore on the coast eoulel be  shipped for less thnn <-i cent a pound,  while up at tho famous Wavp.rloy and  Tangier mines at Albert Canyon it  cost them 3 tn 1 cents to ship the ore  on account of the distance of 20, odd  miles to the railway. The company  have a charter for a railway line to  their workings and part of the route already been surveyed, Lho.igh  there are great, dilliculties in the way  especially from snowslides. ft is a  curious fact that in South Kootenay  the mountains form a kind of. exaggerated rolling prairiefwliile in North  Kootenay the hills are both high anel  steepan'il there is_.uiui.-h danger"from  snowslides to overcome which coscs'.-in  immense amount of money. But the  company is busj', nevertheless, with a  big force of men developing both  inine.*>,so Ihey evidently mean business.  Ore is being blocked out unel prohably  a gotid deal will be shipped over the  snow next winter.  Up the coast the pressing need Mr.  Graham thinks, is the investment of  more developing capital. The rock  formation is distinctly volc.-inie and  not like that- of North Kootenay.  Again some ore is fountl in this  vicinity that, is very similar to Rossland ores. Mr. Graham instanced that  in Colorado rich finds woulel be made,  hut they would " pinch out," and llie  l-'_ly"\vay~tlie~"pe6pie~bfthal~siai-i'-iii;ide~  it stick was to keep on developing and  Ihey woultl find-good ore at deeper  levels.  On the Dorothy Morton, Mr.Gi'aham  soys that the work of pulling in the  cynide plant is going ahead in gooel  shape. J. Cobeldick owns s-uvernl  promising looking claims-and his foreman, Mr. McAllister, told Mr. Graham  that before long ho thought they  would have some gooel substantial  mines in the Lagoon district. Assays of nearly $11.0, mostly iu gold,  have lately been taken from tlie  Douglas'Pine anil the two owners who  aie working the property think they  have a good thing.���������Vancouver World.  Another Social Event.  The ladies of St. Peter's church will  hold an illuminated fete on the vicarage grounds on the. evening of Thurs-  dav, Sept. Sl.h. Among the specialties  will be the ever popular Aunt Sally  and the famous fortune teller Mother  Shipton. There will besides be a  " cocoanut shy," whatever that means.  All sorts and conditions or refreshments���������ice cream, fruits, canelii'.., etc.  ���������will be on hand,as well as bouquets  for the adornment of the fair ones.  The Revelstoke brass hand has been  engaged to render a series of selections  during the evening. The ladies who  have the work in hand are making  elaborate preparations and the coming  fete will certainly add another to the  many social events they have so successfully carried lhrough.  Government Caucus.  A meeting of the supporters nf the  Semlin government was held in the  O'llrieii hall, Metropolitan Club block,  on Friday evening, Those present  were: Premier Semlin, Attorney-  General Martin.

The meeting was private but it is understood  thet many tilings of interest to the  party were eliscussetl and for the present Sir.Semlin will retain tlie Premiership. ' There were one or two rather  1 acrimonious - discussions dnring the  evening���������and the cud is not yet.���������  "Vancouver World.

Hit) -.'drill. Thu mineral wealth of  Krilish Columbia alone is sufficient to'  all-ract the attention of mining men  from every quarter of the globe. And  llie "naif has not yet been told. When  the mining industry becomes thoroughly active, and the great silver'  producing mines of British Columbia-  are opened up, Canada will, if her  interests are properly guarded, have  tho opportunity of stepping out among  the nations, says the Sandon "Mining  Review." Canada-probably has the  smallest amount of metallic mouey in  circulation, and the greatest paper'  money inflation, of any country in the  civilized world; with equal resources  and liabilities. She is reported to'  have fourteen millions of gold.-e^ery  dollar of which has the flat of some'  foreign nation stamped upon it. None'  of it is Canadian money : all of i'C has"  been borrowed. In addition to" this  gold, Canada has five millions of silver"  mniiey. Thi . is"_ta.iiiped with the fiat  of the Canadian government, but every,  piece of it was coined in the mints of  l_p.glancl. of enormous ioss to Canada.  Tho only medium answering for money  that Canada has in- circulation that iV  of home production are the promises'  to pay issued by the banks. There is"  upwaids r.f fifty millions of thismOney  iu circulation, nearly three times" the'  total amount of hor metallic money.  But Canada has no mint, it is urged,  and could not support one. It ia true,  sadly true. lhat. Canada has riot a'  mine, but it is folly to1 say t'hat this'  country, so vastly rich in gold a*hd si!-'  ���������-er. could not keep up "a mint. It is  one eif'those colonial' ideas that should .'  be elone away with like ihe excessive'  use of paper'money. If Canada'is ever'  to be anything more than what she'ia.-  _!i<_> must push ahead' anel grasp the'  opportunity presenting itself.

Revelstoke Stn* I ff-t /  /!... - /  THE FOSTER DAVIN MEETING  AT CALGARY  (Sjit'rittl  (Jorrvsjniutlnict:)  The opera house wus crowded to  the door Monday night on tlio occasion  of the public incptiiiK wliich was announced lo be addressed by Hon. G.  13. Foster and  N.   P.  Davin,  Q.C.  A lni'Ke number of ladies were present in the elress circle. The cliaii" was  taken by James .Muir, Q.C, vice president of tlie Liberal Conservative association. The olher gentlemen present on the platform were lion. .1. A.  Lougbeed, Q.C, l'hl. Doughty, und II.  AV. II. Knott. The chairman called  ill si upon Mr. Davin, who was in cx-  celllont form, and lrcijueutly applauded dui'iiii; the course of his speech. Air.  Davin spoke as follows:  Jlr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen:  1 feel pleased to visit Calgary once  more, and on llie few occasions I  have passed Calgary it. has  been       each       time       to      ir.c       a  source o[ great satisfaction  There, is one feature about ^.i.gary in tis many features ol' interest, which is specially inleresling to  me at the present moment. 1 will pass  over its picliit-csqiiciioss. 1 will pass  over its progress, one sees on every  side, and will confine myself to the  ono feature, namely, that there is no  lown on the continent 1 mark so distinctly Knglish as Calgary.   l.oiu-.lioii:-.  1 have como tonight specially lo  speak to you about politics in Canada,  ami if I am to speak to you about politics in Canada. I can hardly forget that  wc. in this primary colony of the British empire, enjoy that constitution  which is considered by ail thoughtful men lo be the ideal form of government for free men. Now you may  ask whnl is the essential conelitioii of  the working of tlie British constitution, you know in France. Spain and  Italy thoy are said to credit the British empire. Great statesmen of these  countries have said that the Ih'itisli  constitution is confesseniy tne u'.>*_t  anil which has resulted so happily in  the august mother of free nations  It has boon said by so fi-eai authority  as the London Spectator rwhich until  the other day was edited by Jlr. Hutton one ot the greatest men that over  devoted themselves to literature) that  paper declared that only in England  could it be truly said that parliamentary government hael been a. supremo  success. Now without pinning myself  to that wide assertion. Twill accept it  for the purpose of argument,- so far as  lo ask is there any reason why parliamentary government in Kngland  should havo lieen more successful than  parliamentary government in France  ��������� or Spain or any oilier part within the  colonies'.' The great wheel In that  greal machinery is public opinion.  , -and it is by men of public opinion that  parliamentary government, works  tliat is public opinion-of free, hones!  men. then parliamentary government  works successfully, and if you are told  lhat parliamentary government,  which is the supreme condition of self  government, does not work well in  any part or the worlel. for instance  I- it. is clear it docs not work well iu  France or in Spain and if you "ire  asked and you published tha causes,  vou will nnd it is because people have  iiot been educated to lhat point of  .elf government in that given country. Now how does this public opinion make itself feit ? Sometimes in  the members, sometimes on the plat-  rorm. AYell there are cases in every  free country when public oninioii .is  brought into more activity than  others, for instance, in" tho United  States, on the eve of a presidential  flection, public, opinion is brought  into nore activity, and how is it done?  Public, men liolonains. to rival parties  coine before -tlie public and lay down  their prosrraiumos and loll you what  they have done in the past and thev  claim your support because of Lhc policy they pronounced and becauso of the  j__r _-C.'rd__of-_-th___-_-'i il I! liiiistratio'.l that,  thev lay before you. ihey Loll you all  il..' faults of the administration thai  has pased away. They put to you its  diUl.iillies. or ihey arraign tho policy  altogether, thoy may tell you the  policv is altogether wrong. These  memlici's are behaving lo the sounde.1  view of const it utionat government and  thev mav toll you if you will give  thcin voiir confidence thai when ih(~"  get into power they wiil chango al.  that and those' errors' shall be conspicuous hy their- absence in their  administration.  Well suppose you conic io the con  clusion that the opposition is right,  that tlieir arraignment of the government is a just arraignment, and lhat  the policy that Is hero before characterized tlie government is an un  sound policy, you are bound as c.iti  zens of a free country, bound by you -  duty as fellow voters, bound by your  duty -and principles of honor to pit  these men in power. You are hound  to cast aside the fond traditions of  whatever partv. because truth is your  r. party, and may bo the welfare of your  1 country depends upon so doing you  cannot carrv a parliamentary goyern-  cnt successful^' unless you do as has  alwavs been done in England, act in  regard to your vote in accordance  with vour convictions as to what is  best for the state. I come before  you in the light of one who is in the  llie" same breath lauded the policy of  free trade as thoy have il in England.  Ue lhen staled in Llie language I  have usee!, and mind, Unit language  coming from him who Is a ruler of  men, Hint language was stronger  than if il came from a man who permitted himself license of .speech, he  saiel the system of the national policy  was slavery as southern slavery was  slavery. Al the convention of Liberal electors they passed resolutions  conucmiilng the national policy, saying it was a fraud upon the people  and to use equally strong language,  lhat of Sir Richard Carlwriglu. ho  said it was pcrfi-'.-l robbery, robbers  great and robber-" small. Now horo  was a broad promise thai If conli  donee was pluccel iu them Ihey would  give us free trade as lt was in lilng-  ianil. Well iu regards lo the delaito  of that policy there were people in  lhe North West Territories of strong  opinion who thought il would bo best  for the farmers if lhe duty wero lakun  off agricultural implements, and so  much did they impress tliat. upon the  counlry lhat lbe men who wero devoted to Lhc national policy thai agricultural implements were to some  extent raw material of Lho fanner  and Unit raw material should be free  thou lhe farmer was enliUcel lo have  bis  agricultural   iniiilemeiiLs   free.  ���������My friend, Mr. Foster, who wus then  finance minister, reduced from 35 to 20  nor cent duty on farm implements,  and he himself would be (.lie first to  inform you that it was only after  members of liis parly had pressed it  ou his attention that he had some of  liis colleagues agreed to the reduction.  Aly honorable friend reduced (bo  duty on hinder twine by 50 per cent  aiul in coiisoeiiionco of the pressure  put upon him. not by Lho opposition,  the government cares very little about  what the opposition says. "i ney cure  more what a single member of Iheir  own party will say and ir. was in consequence of lhe action of independent members of the Conservative party  that these changes were mado on im-  plemcnls and barbed wire���������50 per  cent taken off under Mr. Foster's revision. AVoll now, afler'lhal was dono  the gentlemen who then constituted  t.ho opposition headed by Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, held a banquet at Alonlreal and thai banquet was really composed of free trade champions denouncing death lo protection, and  with those ideas in his brain ho came  west and told us al AVinnipeg and  Moose Jaw we wore poniiseel implements would be placod on the frco  list, coal oil would bo dealt with in a  most drastic manner. I pass over  -daleiiieiils that wero made in regard  to the administration of the Conservatives.  11. Myers said Lhc debt should ,bo  reduced lo five millions. Jlr. Laurier  declared tlio debt should be reduced  to four millions, lt. was said tlie country was being bletl to death l-.v-lho extortionate expenditure of lhe Co~is~_--  -ativo party, and also by its policy,  the N. P. Tins audience is too intelligent an audience to make it necessary that hero tonight I should do.mor  than hint at the various E.iituro's of  tho changes thai" wore made.  One pledge that was inado was that  ueopotism shoulel be abolished: that a  .minister should not, aggrandize one  'member of'his family. They demanded that all contracts should be  let by lender._ -Well, what has taken  olace ? LeL mo put a picture bsforc  you of two years ago and speak of  tho Conservative politician who stood  upon this platform. Ho told you it  was possible a Liberal party might  succeed, if so this is 'what you will  aec. They will turn Iheir backs on  .very principle; Ihey will not carry  out a singlo pledge they hnve made.  Not a plan iu choir programme of 1S93  will bo completed. They will nol lake  up a single political note of hand, lhey  have given lo t lie people from the  great policy of free trade as il is in  England, to the implied promise in  -their, scqiiii f u Lco.n I em nl.__o_.t_i i.i Ies.-T.h___.__  will dally tor torms; they will do ths  things they said ' wore wrong and  corrupt, and in tho space of two years,  before the shoos were oltl in which,  tliey stood when Ihey promised to the  peoplo of Canada they would elo so  and so, they would havo piled up  scandal after scandal, deficiency afler  deficiency, nntli Liberal paper after  Liberal ' paper denounce tlicm that  they are going towards the gulf Lhat  would destroy the Liberal party.  Hear, hear.  Therefore I say to you in the interests of the countiy,   if  there  is  a  Liberal here listening lo mc, liis duty  is to'say I am a Canadian but I am  a. follower cf Sir Wilfrid LaurUr.  One of the greatest things the British  constitution gives to people that live,  under it is an educative force that  makes ovcry man a possible stales-  man.' The educative force of our system of government Is one of ils greatest blessings. 1 may tell you hero  that, (he politics of a free country is th  greatest educator y ,<i c,u, have, f  have not exhausted that educative  force that 1 see bof-i "o i.ic. ths men  that are fathers of families.alsu thess  of that gentler suisr thac are moio interested than we in Use education >-f  children. Now there is no greater  blessing in a free country than that  we should he able to point to the  highest position and tell our boy that  swept them into wreck and ruin. Thoro  in the lesson, and mind it is tho only  possible way lhal you can make public opinion work. What guarantee  have you against being fooled, and  suppose wo make ihe promises and  can't carry them om what way have  you to punish us ? lt is your only  refuge to punish those men and it is  the only course. AVhat is ii to me  to believe tor instance thai a man  1 liko so much as Sir AVilfrid Laurier  thai ho is a man of corrupt inlluence  lhat he is a man of corrupt interests; that ho is a man who will willfully aud of malice prepuiso go into  corrupt actions. Now it is not dilli-  cull for me Lo believe that be would  say lhat he. would do something and  yet not elo it. because I believe there  is in his cliaracler uu Infirmity of  will, he i.-; so determined lu bj nice  to everybody thai if be felouil before  an audience here tonight lo say a  thing that was black, and if they  iailed black red or yolllow, bo would  sny so it is. Vou know Daudci. u  very great writer, In on" oi his books  says a soiilliern man's lie is no lie lo  him. he Lliinks he lolls Die Lrutli oven  when he lies. Well now a man may be  liko that and yei uot have any loaning to corruption, anil as I say mighl  be at lho head of a govei nm-_nt tnat  was corrupt, and that might happen  it he was noi strong enough to govern his team. He.argues iii this way.,  I think 1 will gel inlo power noxt  Lime, and if ho docs you will scee Lhis,  that he is more eager to shine as  leader of Lhe opposition than tho government. For a leader of men at the  head of government he has not  enough of llie devil in him. Lhe rest  musl be of iron. 1 think it lunis out  lhal I was righl, anyway iL is clear  to mo that 1 cannot for tho world  believe that it was otherwise than by  a sort of compulsion that Sir AVilfrid  Laurier permits Jlr. Sifton and Air.  Tarte today to do the thing"! thoy have  done. 1 am afraid-he is like a sporting  gentleman of the lasi century who  loved to drive a spirited four in hand.  He constructed a spring so that if  the team became unmanageable  thoy could be loosed and after  iho four went off in a fury he  sat in dignity in his rig and had his  reins In his hand, but tbo four ware  galloping miles away. Zs'ow thai-, is  the way with Laurier. His team  runs away with him overy time, he  cannot control them and 1 say now  that a man that cannot control his  team mny be good for a small -lea  party, but. ho is not fn lo ba prime  minister of Canada. T say that there  is a certain levity of opinion about  him, his gravity is specific. Take a  small thing: when he was at Renfrew in '05 a clergyman asked him a  eiueslion aboiiL titles. Sir AVilfrid  drew himself up in his graceful way  and; using a deprecating gesture, said:  "Not Sir AA'ilfriel. 1 am a Democrat  lo Lhe linger lips. 1 would not so far  forget myself as to become Sir AVilfrid."' The words were not forgotten  before he goes over to England and  the temptation is too much for him.  Ho finds the decoration in his room;'  lie look il up and looked al ir and put  it from him, and remembered what  ho bad said ut Honfrcw: and then  ho looked at it again and theu ho  thought how nice he would look, and  ho put it on his breast piasterou all  over with gold, aud then he put" it  I'roin him again and said. "I am a  Democrat lo the.finger tips,  swearing he would never  consented.  Air. Davin concluded by  Tories nol Lo be mere slaves lo parly,  and told a sporting story of Sir AVat-  l:in Wynne.  MR.

They knew that Unit was  preached from every platform in this  country and that we proposed that  tho people should vote for or  against us on that issue. And how  lias ii willi the Liberal puny? They  | were ull tilings to all men sn far as  ; promises, so far as you could calcli  i thoni in words, that they abhorred  j the principle of protection, that il  , was a pain und a curse lo Ibis counlry  and that if they camo into powei- il  would be pul away oven to the last.  Now Ihe Alanitoba school question, I  ask any one to stand up aud say on  that Manitoba school question, do  you know what aclion Llie Liberal  parly will take if you trust thoni willi  power. There is nol a mcinbei' from  one end of the country to tliu other  who could tell yoii just what they  woulel do on that occasion. On the  other hand tliere was not a mar. oil  tbo Libera! Conservative side who  did uoi know what lhe Liberal Con  -.natives would do. The: Liberal  '.'.onserviiiivi's wont io the people  with an honest issue in every case.  I want lo say ibis, us a Liberal Cons-en alive, lhal if defeated wo are not  vanquished; thai, the Liberal Conservative parly is jusl as full of  strength unel vigor, as full of the ardor for tlie lighL wliich is lo come.  Now I think hero, oul In Ibis section  of Lhe country thoro arc people tilling land to feed thoir herds and who  do not care a pin for lhe polii ies of  the counlry, but if thero tire any al  all I want lo say my sny on that.  Vou live in this country, you enjoy it"  protection, take bold of its resource.0  and make your money. Is thai lhc  only duly (hat ynu have? I do not  think so. Lei me press home Llio presentation of free government and say  to you there is a higher duly, as absolutely imperative as Lhe earning of  tbo bread by whicli you live. Sec  that your country has thn benefit of  vour moral cliaracler to make it bcL-  ter than it is. You might live in Kngland where'all these different principles ot government have beon S3  worked out and with such consideration lhat the wheels almost go of  themselves, and il. would nol mallei-  much in that country; it goes of  itself. Put we aro building up a  young country, wc arc laying the  foundation, and there is infinitely  more necessity that every citizen  shoulel contribute his. best in ordei  Io lay this foundation well, and make  this government under which wc live,  ono of the best. Let overy man not  only prize his citizenship but use it  for Lhe benciil of lhe counlry. If  you put before mo lhe alternative of  being a Grit or not being anything. I  say by all moans be. a Grit. Of course  I am bound to say I would rather  you were" a gootl Conservative than a  good Grit. bul. tho fact thai I want  to emphasize is this: belong to some  school of politics, do not 1)0 a jolly  lish. be a Grit.or bo a-Tory, or al least  have for yourself a set, of political  nrinciples whicli you may impress  upon ihey country in which you live  and pass through. If the Conservative party is militant, is. I want  you as Conservatives to cut your  shoulders together in order thai lho  principles you believe arc right may  dominate in this country. Do it now.  do it henceforth; and we want first  lo have the Liberal 'Conservatives organized. Let them got themselves In  to order, ready for tho. defence of  their principles in the political work  of this country.  1 want to emphasize what my honorable friond who preceded me said.  I say it in one singlo sentence, that  the only absolute security you have  for responsible and free government  in this or nny other country, is that  (ho public men shall bo to the  pledges that tbey mako when" (hey  ask your confidence and get your  vote. Can you lell mo any olher way  in which responsible government can  be all ai nod?

Canadian exports, to  wit, agricultural products and the  like preference in the British market.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier Lhen declared  thai ho was just as much in favor of  preferential trade as Sir Chas. Tupper  was and that if he got into power  they would send a commission lo  England and try and arrange for  trade ou that, basis, and they were  Toted to power. Sir Wilfrid Laurier  passed across the ocean, met Mr.  Chamberlain to talk ovor this whole  matter ot trade relations. . Ho was  met by the' Duke of Devonshire and  other ministers ot the British cabinet. Twenty-four hours after Sir  Wilfrid pul his foot on British soil  tho Duko of'Devonshire'as a high  dignitary of England, anel oho in the  confidence of the government, made  lhe best offer he could possibly make.  Sir Wilfrid with his pledgo given to  try and arrange for preferential trade  drew himself back-from tne Duke of  Devonshire's offer and said: "No my  Lord, Canada wauls nothing from  Great Britain, Canada will give Great  Britain the preference in her market  and ask for nothing in relurn." No  wonder Jlr. Chamberlain declared after that speech of our premier he  ���������seeiule] not attempt lo touch tho business -of preferential trade -with a pair  of tongs.

Let mo speak of one or two  things very rapidly. Somo ono has  said: "You will go and hear Air. Foster and Jlr. Davin speak, they will tell  rou this government is no- good q.nd  nil that. They cannot say that under  thepresc-nt government trade has not  Increased nor the country, prospered."  As political campaigners'wo do not  propose to traduce the country. Canada !s prosperous. ' Canadian progress  Is ever upward, onward, but what the  .Intelligent voter Is to do is to sitt out  the facts and ask whether this prosperity is owing to a certain policy o������  the government, or in spite of a certain policy of the government. How-  do we measure progress? By the increasing exports ot tho counlry.  Where has this administration opened  up one market for the products of this  countrywlilch wo did not have before?  Thoy went iu saying tho trade of  Canada must have larger markets.  Where have they got them? Now,  lhey say, the exports have increased.  The export of gold has been twice as  large as two years ago. Has the Liberal government sowed gold or mined  gold or added and increased value to  gold thai lhey claim that it is due to  their government. I believe (hat Jlr.  Tarte claims lhal. this - government  hael discovered gold ln the Klondike  and in narts of British Columbia, and  I am rather inclined to think somebody has been trying lo discover  nnmelhing in the Klondike. {Laugh-  ter).

Tarte proposes to toward Mr. Dan .Mel!jllicuddy, who can  write his line articles, but what will  Air. Dan McClilllcudily do with Ills contract ? Ho will do the same as Jlr.  Tarte's sons 1'aUier-in-law diel in Jlont-  real. lln will let it out and take the  commission, $30,1)00. When asked  I had lo do  (hal, it was the only way I could give  patronage to my people. The dredges  had all gol. into the bands of Conservatives, so that if Llio luwesl tender  was culled for. one of the Conservatives woulel gel il, so I had to give ii  to one of our own friends." And now  Sh: Dan Jlcl'.iilicuddv gels a contract  for $300,000. All be has got to do is  to write articles in the newspaper, but  not such pungeui articles'as he has  boon writing, lie will gel some other  man lodo the dredging and pocket the  commission.  I might say nothing pleases mo more  iu my review of the history of the last  25 years than to find the upward progress IhaL has been made in this  country. We have a history behind  us, a history in which lhe Liberal Con-,  sc-i-valives* kept lhc Liberals out of'  powei" for IS years. The Liberal Conservatives planred the great transcontinental railway, while lhe Liberals ridiculed tlio idea, denounced such  a project in Lhe loudest terms, but as  was said by our foremost statesman,  we believed thai the enterprise of lhis  counlry would remove Gorgon difficulties aud for years that band of  stael has been shining trom tlie At-  ntic to the Pacific. AVhat more was  seen by the Liberal Conservatives  parly ? That Lo have a greal country  you musl. have diversified interests.  Unit in Lhis nineteenth century you  must draw upon tho people for their  liilcnls. The N. 1'. was conceived by  tho Conservatives unci the Liberals  to a man fought against it at overy  stage. "Wliat do wc want protection  for" was lhe cry.  Air. Foster concluded wilh an eloquent peroration and'sat down loudly  applauded."
