T. II. Sled man, president of the Lib- cm 1 Association, occupied the chair and the audience almost went wild when he introduced Dr. Warnock as the first speaker. In his speech Dr. Warnock clearly showed his position and pointed out the many advantage: NEARLY KILLED IN DRUNKEN ROW large interests ill Southern British Columbia, where their Investments to- tal millions of dollars. Believing that eloper relations betwen British Co- lumbia and Washington would bo mu- tuallv beneficial Sir Donald .Mann lett Winnipeg this week for the Pacific coast to promote the project. He was accompanied by T. F. Holt, Canadian Northern railway agent in British Co- lumbia. .Mr. Holt, in an interview yesterday, said bib company would enter Kam- looks, B. C. Furthermore, said Jlr. Moll, "we are going to build south to the United States and into Spokane, giving Kamloops direct communica- tion with that city. Asked if the charter [or Ibis line was to be applied for at tbe next ses- sion of the Canadian parliament, he said it was.

At several Intervals In .his Sifton spoke, was the most onthusias- speech he had to discontinue for a few lie and successful meeting ever held minutes to allow tho apphuise to uio lUacIeod. The hall was crowded down, and in concluding; asked the electors for their support, and from the ovation which was given him on his closing remarks It was evident that, his adherents were solid for reci- procity and that he would he their supporter in the Dominion Parliament after Sept. 21st. Premier Sif ton's reception was equally great and he was in excellent speaking form and his convincing ar- guments turned isay voters to sup- port Dr. Warnock. .He emphasized clearly that a vote Tor Herron was indirectly a vote against the agree- ment although he posed as being. In favor of it. The Premier dealt with tho different large corporations and railways which were dealing with the United States and the tremendous Amount of! Canadian wealth which was invested acrosg the line. These cor- porations were not accused with be- ing disloyal to Canada, but as soon as the Canadian farmers had mentioned their intention oE deal- ing with this country they had imme- diately been accused in this way. This brought down the house and with many other equally important instances he showed that Fielding and Paterson had outwitted the Americans when form- ing this agreement. The meeting lasted for about two hours during which several very weak questions were asked by Conserva- tives in the hall and winch amused the audience in the manner in which they were put. At the cloao of the meeting three icarty cheers were given for "Warnock, Sifton, Laurier and Reciprocity. Jas. Selby in Hospital; Thos.

Would Give Short _ine Tha construction of such a road would provide 'a scenic route with comparatively low grades from to Vancouver, B.C., and a short ]inc to Edmonton, Alberta. It would traverse and tap the only territory to tho south of tile Main, line of the Canadian Northern in Bri- mli Columbia capable of yielding a j large tiaffio.
