He looked for the - triumph of the |  Conservative pnty, and the ending  of the chaotic state of affairs in British  .Columbia. Party government was  undoubtedly the best form of government that had been devised us piacti-  cable by anv people. Eveiy peison  would then know where he stood.  Theii they would get rid of the mongrel personal governments. ._ linisteis  would not only be responsible to the  people but to the party.  Lie thought there had been a   creat  deal of nonsense talked on the Chinese  question.    Since 1S78, m my acts   had  been placed on the statute  books,   but  they had .either been  clecl.ued   ullia  v'ues by the. com ts or were  di=s illo\v-  ed as being opposed "to   some   piution  of the policy of the Dominion Go\ eminent,    lie proposed a peifei t remedy.  They should take the   matter, out   of  the legislation affairs, and   effect   th'e  contract ; that was a proposition  that  would work out .well,   legally.      For  instance, if a corporation  "came   to   a  Legislature, the constant puu-tice had  been to insert nnti-Chinese clauses in  the private bill.   These were absolute  nonsense.   The Lieulenant-Grovernor-  iif-Council should -be   empowered    to  place this in contracts, not  ih  acts of  patli.iment,   ' which   sum body   would  dedaie' ultra   vires." The   law" could  be so tlxed'that every privilege   given  should he ahiogated if   the   terms  of  the contract were not curried out.   lie  had tbo'iTghl out this proposition   veiy  thoioiighly and  was   certain   that  it  was the true solution of the  difficulty.  Mr. Wilson theii took up the variou'-,  plunks of the platform.   They s'hould'  stop'at nothing to build-trunk -mads  throughout the Pro . in< e.    He did not  believe in juggling with the money.of  ths ppople; but he did'believe in "dis-  tnbuting     iniiney     that,'- while -not  immediately     lein-inerative,      would  tend to the ultimate good mid advancement of the "Provinie.     The "question  of the improvement of   administering  of justice should receive   the%-. be-,t   ot  attention;it was an impoi tunt. fe.itme.  He     lead   the   plank   regudinij   the  settlement of disputes   between   labor  ���������md     capital.       He  appreciated   the  position of both employed and employer.    It. was a   matter   of   very* great  importance.   The Consei vative party  had not been fulsome in their promise..  Tne   promise   to   endeavor   to   In ing  employer and employed  together Mas  iv most laudable object.    The.   government   ownership   of  railways   plank  was an iiiiniii tant one; a dirticult one,  and one which would lie met manfully.  The intention   was   when   the  was     insetted    that   this   should   be  cai ried out. _ .   ..

A change iii the., Legislatuie' might  show the danger nf the principle,  when wages might be dec leased. The  pioper method in such an impntlaiit  matter would have been to call the  leadei*. of labor and employers fngelh-  er.
