Thu said work  is a good sample of the .oft, snaps that,  fall iu tlio way of those that have I lit'  pull, hut not lhe brains to tin a decent  job. It is a disgrace the'way money is  frillered away on such a 'sample of  workmanship as that whirl* lie** on the  hanks of Fish Creek. Now [ limn* we  uri* to have a bridge right away. Is it  not possible lo let the contract out on  bills? As there are other men in this  district, and men who understand Ihe  work far better limn Ihe one and the  only one who has the pull with our  friends Messrs. Kellie & Coursier, in  this part of the country, as he has  personally told me.  - The same party holds a largo nuni-  lier of mineral claims and does SO pet-  cent, of his assessment' with axe and  pencil. It is time "now these underhand-tricks were stopped, as it is not  only retarding the opening up of the  country-liul also keeping good men  from coining in. Now, sir, I should  like to see a puhlic answer given to  this, and if they do or do not, I have  far more lo say as to the way this  dish id is managed. It is, well, onesided.

[The * Hl.RA._rj is very well aware  that the past recoul of government  administration in the Fish river  district, has been with the exception  uf one brief interval, to .say the least  of * it peculiar. However _ the old  regime in the Kevelstoke riding is  rapidly dr.uving to a h'nl.iinented  close, and the Herald has no doubt,  thnt, if the proposed new bridge  across Fish River is really to be pro-,  ceeded wilh. the piesent government  otlicials will see the extreme advisability of letting the contract, for it in the  inii.t open and above boaid manner  possible.

Biitish Columbia will have reason to  thank Lieutenant-Governor Mcltmes  if his discharge of an unpleasant duty  has no other* result than the substitution of parly government for the  infernal system of, personal politics  which has cursed that piovince'.  Party government docs not always  produce good results, but it does eu-  ���������ible the people to get exactly the' suit  of government which they deserve.  Government hy a set of politicians,  who are united "by nothing stronger  than personal dislikes and' likes, does  not enable the people to know what  they are voting for, or what they are  voting against.  Party government has 1-irgely  f.iiled in Ontario ; first, because there  'is-not���������enough���������indep'ende nee���������in���������the'  rank and file to keep the leaders of  lhe party travelling in the right  direction*: and secondly because theie  is not enough independence among  the people to^kecp the oflice-holding  politician _ from thinking they have  a lite interest in their jolw.

This  is  par-.'"  ticu'.ariy so in Rossland,   wheie   since.. .  the fiist of the month, no less than 500   '  men have left for the "United  Stated."

Did   Not   Find   Calgary   So  Easy as
Some Other Places
From the Calgary Herald
About tbe end ot December a young
man with a Scotch name, an h.nslisu
accent, a cultured appearance, and a
rayal American gall struck Caigaiy
���ml  applied  at  The Herald office  for
He was a journalist, he said. Had
been at Oxford, could report in shorl-
fcjsuid. had been very ill at Lethbridge
(where he had spent all his money)
and wanted to settle down in Ual-
jjxry Th<* air here agreed with him,
!.<-��� said. He was handed a note-book
and pencil and sent to report a concert in Knox church, with an intimation that if his work was satisfactory
Cvare might be something permanent
far  him. ,    ,
About noon the next day V"> had tne
c_mcert report finished. When the
editor read it and looked over a proof
TClajich the Oxford man had "correct-
ph" v,f. sf-nt- down orders to pay '.'Mr.
Patterson" off and intimated that perhaps he had better seek some easier
v.-*"> r_k. .    ,,
He could not write grammatically,
tie was short on spelling, his knowledge of shorthand was defunct and
lie had evidently never seen a proof
to his life.
'���'itr. Paiterson" then wished to ir.-
tecview the editor. He had a. bit of
a legacy, he said, coming from Eng-
tand. Ho liked Journalism. >i��
t_t_Oight he would like to buy an in-
te-rest in Tho Herald and become subeditor.
The editor was kind to "Mr. Pattor-
Efflgi " He didn"t want to see him
���Baste, bis life working on a newspaper. He said there were higher
tffiLrigs for him. Personally he con-
���flered "iir. Patterson" a fraud, but
not wishing to hurt his feeling*- he
flldn't  tell   him  so,
Then "Mr. Patterson" went away.
Ho hail other resources. He engiaft-
�����_. himself on the Y. M. C. A., where
ha waa to teach physical culture. He
cot hlrs.si-.ir baptized in one of the
churches. He told his landlady h>.
waa a doctor, and was ROlng Into
partnership with a well known local
practitioner. He bought a bicycle
and secured a job as clerk with ��.
prominent contractor.
Koon It became known to several
citizens that the gentleman waa the
���ame young* doctor (?) who had
"rwrked" Lethbridge, Great Falls and
uUter places to the tune of several
tundred dollars. In Great Fa'l" he
utilized the Salivation Army for his
peculiar operations. In fact hf was
one of the most 'devout and noisy
members of that organization. "When
ecu of the ensigns here addr^ss*^!
6im onf day as "Mr. C'l'-ments" hi-
ncarly  had  a  fit.
To shorten our story, the gc-ntlpmnn
found Calgary a hard place to work.
Ee is said l-l have succcedr-d in borrowing about a hundred dollars, appropriating a few more, getting away
\tith a bicycle (not paid f'ir) and leaving some little things ..������hi'* . him in
the  shape  of  board   bills,  etc.
He left 1.'***t v.-e.-k for parts unknown and th'*ro are people who think
it would be vastly in the int<-t*estH
of morality if his location could h��
discovi-r��d nrwl his penchant for dis-
bonest--' allowed to cool off behind
the walls "f a penitentiary.
Further particular., of th:. "Patter-
' F.on" swindle show him to liavo been
a rogue of the worst description. Re-
Hides robhine his employer, defrauding hi= landlady and using a clonk
of religion to do up people who had
gone out of their way to bc-friend

from a respectable young lady with

bad a habit of shamming sickness
and staying In bed for days together,
for tho purpose, as waa afterwards,
discovered, of avoiding detectives
whom-he imagined wore on his track.
I  hurried   on    to   catch    th��    Cold-
streams   who   were   nearing   the   crest
of, the kopje.     It is safer in a crowd.
But  the hill  top was cleared.  An  occasional  shot  was . sent  by    a  flying
'Boer   from   a   kopje     a   few     hundred
vards   in   the     rear,   and     1   reclined
quietly   and    unobtrusively    behind  a
boulder.       You   see  I   was   tired,   and
there was  a nice    friendly .shade    on
that side of the rock.     Tommy didn't.
His eyes  were glistening and he was
looking   for   pot   shots   at   the  flying
Boers.      1  like Tommy,  God  knows  I
have a reason to, but his contempt for
bullets is something that I cannot admire.     It shows a lack of intelligence.
If   there   is   anything   that   I   have   a
respect for it is a Mauser bullet with
a business move on.     It shouldn't be
intorferred with.    But Tommy is such
an "absent minded beggar."  A chance
shot went thorugh  the  helmet of the
fourth man from me and he    had tlic.
effrontery,   the   cool,   calm     effrontery
to   take   it   off.   look   at   it   for   a
seconds,       and   cheerfully   quote
London popular song:      ' Only a
bit off the top."
Then I got closer to the shade of
that rock���it was getting hotter. l
was prepared to stay there for a considerable time, in tact, spending the
morning there, when bounding oyer
the rocks came the drum major of the
First Coldstreams, who seemed to
have a sort of a roving comn"-'���*;.
and I heard my name called.. f**u��J
Major Blundell was an old friend of
mine and a man worth meeting, but
you know there are times���there are
times when you don't feel Inclined to
meet the dearest friend you ever had
especially if he Is standing upon a-
South African hilltop under fire. And
I considered that Drum Major Blundell hadn't any tact, and I met his
enthusiastic hand shake ��������"">:
and ducked as a shot whistled over
head. In years gone by ��hc"r10"J

The non-cornmisHioned ollicer who

It would b<! impoi-riiblf' for me to get

Statisticians assort that thero are
115L distinctive tribes of natives in
South Africa south of tho Zambesi
river. Most people v.*ho have lived
in tlmt part of the world will cheerfully assert thai this census is far
below the truth���if dialects and rac-
i:il (lu'terencus count tor aught.
RuiiRli guesses place thc number of
natives al from 2,000,000 to 10,000,0u0
but as a matter of fact no one knows
even approximately their number.
This lack ui information is duo to
the roving propensities of tho natives. Here today, thoro tomorrow,
it would take a mightier hunter than
oven (he famed Seloir. to Hunt them
all down.
The   writer   (Edgar  Mels,   fot-muily
editor   of   tho     .Johannesburg     Daily
Nowsi,   .ind   now     contributing*   this
and  other South African  articles    to
the Scientific American)   has seen tho
South   African  native.comiuonly  called  Ktiflir,   In  all  his  varying phases,
in his wild   state,   seml-civillzod   and
wholly   so.    lie  has   seen   the   native
at His best and at his worst���untainted by  the   touch    of  civilization  and
soiled hy its proximity.    And through
it0all   tho  writer  has  believed,    and
perhaps always  will,  that the Katlir,
whether Zulu or Dasuto or Bechuana
or  Swazie or  Ainalonga or Matabclc
or any other  tribe, has good in  him,
j"ust its   though  is  skin were  white���
and   bad   too.
Summed up in a few words, the
Kaffir, in his uncivilized stato. is an
overgrown child, with childish foibles and shortcomings;. But let
him learn the vices of civilization,
let him realize tho evil there is in
Him, let him discover that there is
a broad path leading to destruction���
and you will find a- fully civilized
being ,as capable in certain directions  as  the  white  man.
It is a fact that where the Kaffir
is permitted to dwell in primeval
ignorance, with nothing lo warn him
of vices ho knows nothing about, he
remains a good christian.even though
ignorant of the doctrinal disputes and
the meaning of higher criticism. It
is.equally a fact that where He imbibes a little learning, especially a
knowledge of Engish, he becomes all
that is worst in a human being.
A study of the Kaffir is a study
of..the human being, and what is
more ho Has been grossly and shamefully maltreated. Space pevents ~ --
cital of the wrongs of the native, or
to a' dissertation as to his idiosyncrasies and peculiarities. -
'���It must be borne in mind that the
Kaffir is very much unlike the American negro. There is no blood taint
in the Zulu nor consumption in the
filatabeie. mnttowea witn a superabundance of animal health and constitution untainted (in most cases)
by civilizaion, the average Kaffir is
a magnificent specimen 'of Humanity.
And here the difference between Him
and his American ex-brethren asserts itself. Put a southern "darky"
and a Zulu aide by side, and the difference will be apparent to the most
casual observer. Tho skin of a Zulu
is entirely different from that of a
negro as we know Him. The Zulu's
cuticle is transparent, so that the
red blood can be seen coursing beneath it. That is the Zulu's great
pride. He will point to his skin to
prove that He is a pure bred Zulu���
the real Ethiopian of the ancients.
And it is so with the other tribes.
Tho flat feet and bowed legs of the
American   negro   are  missing.
As to the morality of tho Kaffir���
that differs according to the tribe
and its proximity to civilization. The
Zulu is eminently virtuous. Infraction of the law of morality is punished by death. The culprits are
placed on the ground witn tneir
respective heads resting upon a
flat stone. On the other hand the
Hottentot, having been inclose companionship with white men, is perhaps the most depraved and immoral
beings perhaps in existence. The
Matabeles are moral, so are the Be-
sutos and the Mashonas. The Be-
chuanas are less so, and the Bushmen rank netx to the despised Hottentots. _That the litter are as bad

' which to make veterinarians came
direct from the schools and universities, and it is true they did succeed
in securing most of the prizes ouereu
for the best examination, but their
merit stopped there. Few have thus
lar ever succeeded in attaining ti>
any marked degree of prominence

Observation is tlie medium through
which he is to arrive at and .lclerminb
what ha is to meet and combat, and
this talent can only be nciiuirod by
constant and long association with the

lliem in all their moods and temperaments.
Veterinary    science    In    this
is a piodut'i c-i" a single century.    One
I'.unilrcd   yeai.; ago a  college  educated
practitioner   was almost   unknown.     It
is  said     destiny shapes    thc  course of
human  events.      At   that   Lime  horses
���in   facl   all   domestic     animals���were
In Id    in   low   esteem,    valued   only   as
slaves   and   food   Product.      Sentiment,
'���xec'iil   in   a.   few     isolated     instances,
having nothing in common with them.
As    this   began    to   change,    and    tin;
youthful  scion upon whom il devolved
to   perpetuate   tlie   family    name   demanded    Ihe   ripht   lo   own   a   huntei-

SL-nllment hrgini   to grow,  nnd with  it
a   desire   tu   protect    properly   of   r..y
much   value.       Color,    symmetry   and
health,    so    conducive     lo    ownership
and   usefulness,     must     he     protected.
This   nnciicil   up  a  field   which   off 'red
opportunities   to   a   horse   loving   class
of young men   to exercise  their tastes
nnd talents, and as this sentiment and
love of the horse grew so has the veterinary science  developed,   until   today
there are  12 established   and  o-tulppotl j
schools  teaching this   branch  ot  modi- I
cine   in   our  country.      From   this   has I
sprung    that     splendid      orgnnlzatlon '
known   as   lhe   Uureau   of   Animal   Tn-

A Terrific  Storm.
A Cape Times correspondent at Est-
courl says thai owing lo tho groat difficulty experienced in obtaining native
runners to carry despatches, "I determined to try and get through myself,
and secured a European Q-uide to
country i point out tho road. We started out or
__.._ tou.n about 9 at night, but had not ascended out of town when a tern lie
thunderstorm commenced. Huge boulders woro undermined on tho roadside
and rolled down on the roadway, and
v. aLer rushed down Uie paths ankle
deep. The storm passed away to the
north,, but returned in as great violence and lasted  longer than before. At
��� e second outburst the guide refused
to go a step inrther. and wo wen;
compelled, therefore', to return to Est-
ITairbronth Kseapos.
Many marvellous escapes aro recorded at Gras Pan, says the Capo Times:
"One man was hit in the right thumb,
the left llttlo finger, and tho tip of
the ear; he had also a graze under
the chin. He was Iiit four times and
scarcely marked."

Daring Despatch Rider.    -
Many hairbreath adventures are met
with by- the daring "despatch riders.
Ihe Grahamstown Journal says: "Mr,
W. Cummings, of .'Douglas, who haa
been in and out of Kimberley during
the siege with despatches from Mr.
Rhodes, is perhaps one of the moBt
daring and successful. On one occasion he crept for the best part of 30
miles on his hands and knees with despatches, so as to escape observation,
through a country swarming with
Boers. - "The enemy had set a Price of
��300 on hia head."
��� An Artful Native.
The Journal gives another instance:
"A native runner Between Kuruman
and Mafeking .was-taking a.quill despatch through, and was caught by the
Boers. They searched him from top
to toe and let him go having found
nothing. The wily native had rammed the precious despatch up his nose."
. As a Memento.
The Natal Witness publishes a letter
from a Ladysmith young lady, which
says: "Just after breakfast another
shell came from Long Tom. It landed just over on the other side of the
paddock: ... I said I would run
over and gel a piece of the shell as
a    memento.      No sooner    said    than
done. Oft I scampered. Spoke to
tne first soldier I came to. He said:
'Come with me; I can warn you in
time to clear before another shell
comes.' So I went gaily on talking
away. Another soldier said: 'Here
comes-another,' and-before we had
time to think the awful booming and
shrieking came. ... I shut my
eyes tight and clung to a barbed wire
fence. It exploded about 20 feet away,
perhaps not so much,. and the earth
shook under me, and my legs felt shot
all over. The last thing I saw aa I
shut my eyes was men rolling on tho
ground and running away in all directions (fear lent them wings, but was
not so kind to me), and a mule rush-
injr by me. After it was over I wanted to get a piece of the shell, and then
fled home with three-lumps . . When
I got back I got such a wigging."

The Double Eagle Company has been formed for the purpose, not only of m ning its present properties
but of, acquiring promising claims and 'developing them to an extent that will justify their sale to English and
other companies at a profit. Tlie company already owns and has paid, for in full, the Trilby and Old Saul
properties in the famous I.i.sli River district, and a three-quarters interest in the May Bee mine,1, in the
Lardeau district one and a half miles from Ferguson Sufficient promoter's shares havo been set aside for the
purchase   of tho remaining   f|iiartcr.
The May Bee is tho sister claim to the now famous Nettie L, which has broken all records in British
Columbia for large bodies of phenomenally rich. ore. The May Bee ,and Nettie L were located together in
I -O'i by Mr. W. B. Pool (who lias been appointed manager of the Double Eagle Co.) Both claims carry identically
the fifime rich ore on thc surface and the same remarkable ledge runs through both, carrying high values
in gold, copper, silver and lead. The promoters have already spent $4,000 in developing-the May Bee, with
excellent results, and in order to place the mine quickly <n a shipping basis the company now offers the public
i the opportunity of investing to a limited extent in ful'.y paid and non-assessable treasury shares (par value

this idea, sparing no drudgery or
weariness until he felt at least that
he could express it no better. It was
an unconscious preparation for an -Stilish  style of unusual  effectiveness.
In ltS57 Mr. ITord and his partner
bought the Youth's Companion from
Natnaniel Willis. Thus for a time
two papers were carried on side by
side. But differences as to policy
arose. Mr. Ford had an ambition to
make each paper the leader in its
own field; and his courage in adopting
expedients and- making expenditures
to that end knew no limit. Ultimately 'it was seen to be wise for the
partners to separate. The property
was divided, and Mr. Ford becamU
sole proprietor of The Companion.
From that time forward until his
death, Mr. Ford made The Companion
the chief interest of his life. His
mind was-constantly on the alert to
devise something new to interest, otto instruct his readers. In the early
days of his ownership of The Companion he carried the double burden
of publication and editorship almost
alone. He was at his ��� editorial work
at home hours before breakfast, and
at his business office as early and as
long as any of the employees. As
the scope of the paper broadened, and
as the field of its popularity extended
gradually over the whole country, he
enlarged his corps of assistants in
both departments, and organized it
with scrupulous care, so that in case
he should be temporarily or permanently unable to conduct the paper
himself, it should suffer no harm.
During the latter years of his life, indeed, the end of which he'had constantly in view, was to lay the foundation of the paper so broad and deep,
and to make it so secure upon them,
that he might be sure of its steady,
uninterrupted and successful continuance upon the course he had marked
out for it. A-man of different character might not have cared what became after his death of that which
had brought him such success whil&
he lived; but Mr. Ford worked for
permanence, because he believed in
The Companion and in its mission,
and did not want its usefulness
bounded by one short human life. His
constant holding to account of his editors for errors in the minutest details
had reference not only to the present,
but to the future; the current paper
must Indeed be ��� perfect, but so must
his assistants aim at perfection, for
to them must he look to carry on the
paper in future years. -. And In all
departments this constant training
went on, as each man needed it, with
the result that the paper is now left
In the hands of a body of men thoroughly imbued with his spirit and
methods. They receive it from him
as a sacred trust.
So  long  as  he  was  fully  in  charge
of the paper he was in the truest sense
its   chief   editor.      Ho   could   not���because he had neither the time nor tho
strength for the task���read all the stories   before   they   were   accepted:   but
-wheiiT they���were =selected_for__.publIcar_
Won by the assistant editor in charge
of this  work,  they were submitted  to-
him in type, and if one did not please
him it was ruthlessly cancelled.     The
same  was true-of the miscellany and
other  parts   of  the   paper:   his  pencil,
was   drawn   firmly   through  any .part
that seemed  to him dull, .or,  for* any
reason, unsuitable. -  "For   the   mental
and  moral  growth   of his  readers,   h-
held  himself  in the largest sense  responsible. Over the mechanical departments  of the  paper  he-presided  witr.
no  less genius. All Important matters
were   submitted   to   him.       He   was,
during many years,  the nal arbiter In
all   matters   of   business.      Fertile   In
plan  and* suggestion,  he decided   how
and   at  what      cost   the   _ periodical
should be brought to public attention,
where and  to what    extent The Companion   might  reach   out    to   broaden
its   scope  and  increase  its  usefulness.
There was a discussion a few years
ago,   as   to   whether   a   man   starting
with   nothing  could    honestly   become
the possessor of a million dollars. The
life   of  Mr.   Ford   answered   the question.      He  begun    business    with    no
thought of becoming wealthy;  he  adopted the practice of giving to others
at  the.  start;   he  continued  giving  to.
the end, and his benefactions continue
after his death.     All the time he was
scattering  money  with   an   unsparing
hand,   not to   promote  his  own pleasure,   but  to   relieve   suffering  and���in
particular���to   help   persons   in   temporary   distress.       Here  an   employee
was continued on full    pay during   a
sickness that lasted for months. There
a.   feeble   church   received   a  donation
which enabled It to continue its bene-
cient  work  In  hard  times.      Here  an
honorable  man,  caught in an advers*;

with  the  Icps of credit and   the .savings   of  long   years   of  industry,   wa*-

Some of I hem  maybe desire to .support Mr. Cotlon  and the so-called provincial party  against Mr. Martin and although the  I._*_n.\r,i> thinks their attitude is  slighlly absurd, they at all evenls  oiler something tangible to the public  to go on. Rut there is certainly a very  largo element among the recalcitrant  Conservatives at Victoria, who would  almost as soon see Mr. Martin it*  power as Mr. Cotton. These gentle  men have no use for Mr. Col leu, the}  ������������������enounce Martin and all his works,  they piolest. againsi, party lines in  provincial all'aiis and they bid the  eleclois rally with them round ���������  whom or what? That is the (piestion.  So far it has not been nusuei-eil. Tbe  Coloui.-t, as I heir moulbpiec pnhlished.  on its own motion apparently, a string  of genei-ilities that were not even  glittering as a platform around wliich  it. proposed to gather the hosts of the  really righteous against the wickedness  of Joe, but even the Colonist bus not  yet told us who is Lo he the leader of  its forlorn hope.  SEE th:  IVlien you "have tn purchase drugs or got n  proscription tilled. See Hint the Bed Cross- is  on tho package. It Is n (.narniitce thai tho  drugs n*-ed are pure and prime. For not only  is it Important lo have pure drugs hut also  prime drugs Unfortunately there arc many  iiidiici-ini'iit������ offered to niiiiiufaeliirers lo use  Irugs which, although pure, do not serve the  I-ir-in*-t>nf duliih'niiy belter tlmn tlioie hIiIcIi  ire actually adulterated. These mo drugs  which have been collected out of season, or  havo been badly cured.  Wo use our experience (of nearly 20 years) iu  examining the drugs we use, nnd you can  depend upon everything being In the primes!  condition.  IB_.caii.se forlorn hope it really is���������  ���������ill that there is of the most forlorn.  The real objection to party lines came  out in the report of the last meeting  of the Victoria association. ill*.  Lucas, it said, was present and was  asked if the decision to adopt party  lines meant the adoption of tbe platform of the New Westminster convention, including the eight hour law  and Ihe government' ownership of  railways. He replied that, it did and  his answer, the report said, seemed lo  increase Lhe desire to adjourn the  meeting. The Hkiiai.d scarcely  thought it possible that there still  remained any batch of politicians in  the. province, who proposed to face an  election without declaring themselves  on these two points of the eight hour  law and the government owneiship of  railways, but it seems there must "be.  There was'no mention made now we  think of it of these two unpleasant  questions in the Colonist's string of  sonorous platitudes and there intibb be  it seems some people in Victoria who  actually expect to be allowed to sail  into power on this kind of old fashioned bladder, stulied with wind, full of  sound and promise, signifying absolutely nothing, but the earnest desire of  certain politicians to enjoy once more  the sweets of power and oflice.

The following is the platform  adopted by th*. _SVw Westminster  Convention of the \l_ib.rnl-Coriserva-  tive party held last October :   '  It is proposed: (l) To rev in* the  voti'i'd' lists.  (2) To iic-tivi-ly aid in Ihe ci>n*.tnn-  tion of trails throughout, tin* nndcvcl-  ped pari.ioi; m' Lli e pnu-inct*. and  the building of provincial trunk road*?  of public* iii.ces-.iLy.

That   platform   was ] disposition of legal disputes.  made by men, who are right in touch  with the mass of the electorate, and  who knew that a definite prononnce-  mc-iit. on .these points was expected.  They are al.������i strong feature's of the  Liberal New Westminster platform,  of 3Ir. Mill-tin's platform, of Mr.  Cotton's platform. Where then do  these doubtful Thomases of Virloiia  expect to go for comfort ? If any of  them'arc so simple as to expect lo rim  on their own merits as avowed opponents of tlii>������e two planks in all these  .program nies.-it-mny��������� be��������� ns���������well���������to  remind them that Mr. Martin's proposal to abolish the $200 forfeit for  pre-eminently unsuccessful candidates  is not yet law. It is uselu������*. for thetn  therefore to kick any longer against  the pricks. They are in n tight place.  They limy dislike Lhe situation, they  may resent it, but the plain fact  remains that there is no choice for  them between the frank acceptance nf  the New Westminster Liberal-Conservative platform of 1S00 and political extinction.  (fi) To provide an effective system  for the s,eltlem . nL nf di.-putes beLween  capital and labor.  (6) To adopt the principal of  government ownership of railways in  so far as the i-ircmi,stance of th.  province will admit, and lhe adoption  of the pi int-iple that no bonus .-Ikm-.IiI  be granted to any railway coinpanv  which does not give the government j  of the province the control of rate,  over lines bomised together with the  option of ptti-**l_-i_>e.
