T.  W.  Falconer and
Geo. Black Address
At the Conservative meeting
held at Alice Arm on Wednesday
evening, a number of speakers were
heard. They were, J. Trinder,
(chairman), H. F. Kergin, Liberal
candidate, W. H. Moult, Independent Labor Candidate, T. W.
Falconer, Conservative candidate,
and Capt Geo. Black, M. P. for
Yukon, who spoke in support of T.
W. Falconer. The meeting was
also enlivened by two solos given
by Mrs. Pinckney of Anyox.
J. Trin.'er in opening the meeting
made a few complimentary remarks
in support of T. W. Falconer, and
extended an open invitation to either
of the other two candidates to take
the platform.
H. F. Kergin accepted and stated
that his trip to Atlin had been most
successful. He said that the people
there were perfectly satisfied with
the manner government affairs had
been conducted in that district
during the past twelve years.
During his eight years of office he
had received no serious criticism in
regard to public works etc. He
criticized the statement of T. W.
i'alconer that all government road
work would stop on July 18th.
He also dealt at length with
other conservative charges, and
outlined what had been done during
the past twelve years to assist
prospectors and miners.
W. H. Moult, Independent
Labor candidate stated that he was
absolutely independent. He said
that the prospector was the founda
tion of all prosperity. That he was
the man who provided cannon fodder, inasmuch as the prospector was
instrumental in creating such towns
as Anyox and Alice Arm where
future generations were born.
Smokestacks, among other things,
are what we need, he said.
T. W. Falconer followed with a
very concise and instructive address.
He gave an outline of his life from
Morden, Manitoba to Alice Arm.
He stated that he was acquainted
with the difficulties confronting the
prospector and small mining company, and believed that he was
capable of representing them in the
Legislature. His recent visit to
Atlin convinced him that that district would be in the Conservative
column at this election. This conclusion was arrived at after a visit
of the whole section.
Ian MacKenzie, he said, had
made a statement in North Vancouver that H. H. Stevens and asso-.
ciates would not be granted a charter for the extension of the Stewart
Short Line into the interior. , This,
he said, was a shame. His experience on the praries was that railways were necessary to build up
our population, and there was no
reason in stopping railway building

Liberals are Optimistic
Regarding Outcome
Information from liberal headquarters state that H. F. Kergin
has just returned from a visit to
Atlin and Stewart, where he received a great ovation at well attended
meetings. Mr. Kergin was fortunate in getting in the last word up
in Atlin, as he was able to correct
the fallacies of T. W. Falconer,
conservative candidate, and J. C.
Brady, M. P. There is every indication that Mr. Kergin will be returned by a big majority as his increasing efforts to build up this
district are truly appreciated.
George Casey, of Prince Rupert
a former labor candidate in Atlin
riding has offered his support to
Mr. Kergin in the present campaign.
Elks' Ball Team Victorious
In Two Games
On Monday night, in spite of rain
beforehand, the Mine and Elks'
teams turned out at the Ball Park
with the Elks victorious, the score
being 5-2. The line-up was for the
Elks, Lazoreek, Sheen, Bartmann,
Evans, McLachlan, McDougal,
Steele, Wilson and Barclay. For
the Mine, Cook, McLennan, Ferguson, Roberts, Anderson, McMillan, Brown, Peel, Ritchie.
Owing to the steady downpour
of rain, it was necessary to cancel
the games of last week. Nevertheless on Saturday last, the Elks' and
Concentrator's ball teams were seen
in action, with the Elks having a
victory of 9-5. Batteries for the
Elks were Ballentyne andChenoskie,

T. F. Baxter Addresses
Conservative Meetings
j In District;   .
Three meetings were held last
week in support of the candidature of T. W. Falooner, conservative
candidate. F. T. Baxter of Vancouver was the principal speaker.
Two meetings were held at Anyox
and one at Alice Arm. At the
meeting held at Anyox Beach on
Friday evening, W. H Moult, Independent Labor candidate spoke
a few words.
The Alice Arm meeting was held
on Thursday evening in the Coliseum. The hall was filled to capacity
and Mr. Baxter was given a very
attentive hearing. He imparted
a lot of political information and
criticized a number of statements
made by liberal speakers at former
J. Trinder presided over the
meeting, and at the conclusion of a
few well chosen remarks, called
upon Mr. Baxter to address the
Mr. Baxter opened his address
by explaining the inability of Mr.
Tolmie to appear before the people
of the North, on account of his presence in Ottawa when the forthcoming election was announced
and the difficulties of transportation
in this part of the province.
Mr. Tolmie, he added, had been
accused of inexperience by his opponents, and he cited as an example of Mr. Tolmie's ability the fact
he, a conservative, had been asked
by Hon. MacKenzie King to act
as Minister of Agriculture and had
filled that position with great
He then referred to certain parts
of the Hon. Premier MacLean's
speech at Alice Arm in which the
Premier spoke of the Government
through whose hands 20 million
dollars passed each year being criticized by men who had never handled $5,000 in their lives, but, Mr.
Baxter asked, "is a man's brain
power to be judged by the amount
of money he has?"
It would be to the country's
benefit to have a change of government, it was the speaker's belief
that any Government needs to be
changed at least every 8 years.
In contradiction to the Premier,
he said that there is not a successful business man in the Cabinet,
and according to Mr. Woodward,
they have not the business ability
to look after the affairs of the present government.
In the 12 years that the Liberals
have been in power in B. C. they
have collected in taxes 171 million
dollars, and borrowed 68 million,
making a total expenditure of 250
million dollars. The Conservatives in their 13 years of power collected 110 million dollars and borrowed 7 million making their total
expenditure 117 million, as compared to the 250 of the Liberal's

" DO I
pang forward
WHAT does the future of British Columbia hold for us? Were we
wise in putting our Life's effort, our brawn, our brains, our
money, into this Province? Were we, and those hardy pioneers who
wrested this vast domain from the wilderness, mistaken in the belief
that this, indeed, was the "land of opportunity?"
Let us sum up the achievements of the past ten years.
Let us look the situation squarely In the face and see
whether or not our efforts have been fruitful, and our
faith in British Columbia and her potentialities justified.
The development of our natural resources has centred
the eyes of the world on British Columbia, and has
attracted thousands to our province. Today we have a
population of 617,000. The last census showed only
392,480. Today we have an invested capital in Industries
and commerce of 1,837 million dollars. Ten years ago
It was only 650 million. We have harnessed more of our
nip.hty watercourses. Today they are delivering 460,562
H.P., as compared with 231,700 H.P. ten years ago, and
we still have millions available I
Industrial production totalled $1,955,436,616 In 1926.
In 1916, $807,119,736. Our payrolls have grown from 78
million to 175 million dollars annually, giving each
industrial worker the greatest individual buying power
of any in the Dominion.
Our commerce has increased from 43 million tons,
carried by 51,104 ships in 1916, to 83 million tons and
95,000 ships. Today we control 17% of Canada's entire
export trade. The value of ores taken from our mountains
has steadily mounted in the last ten years from 42
million dollars to 67 millions . . . 59% increase . . . yet
our mineral resources have only been scratched within
the transportation area I Our fisheries produced 27
million dollars in 1926; 14 million in 1916; and our main
industry, lumbering, has risen In the same period from
42 million to 84 million dollars... 139% increase!
While we are not usually looked upon as an agricultural province, yet we produced no less tha:; 17
million dollars worth of farm products in 1926, as compared with 32 million ten years ago. Our total agricultural
wealth Is estimated at 300 million dollars.
Our school population has increased during the past
ten years from 64,570 to 101,688; schools by 31%; teachers
by 71%. Construction grew from $2,800,000 in 1916 to
the amazing figure of $27,300,000 in 1926; while durici
the same period we added no less than five thousand
miles to the then existing 26,000 miles of roads and
trails. Today the value of our bridges alone is $8,848,0001
Seriously studying this ten years' record, can we
ever question for a moment the wisdom of our choice
of British Columbia as the scene of our life's work.
Can we ever doubt our faith?
Most emphatically NOI For these phenomenal
achievements speak in no mean terms of that which may
be accomplished under sane legislation, when effort
is sincere, when there Is unity of purpose and faith
to move mountains.
With confidence unbounded we can all put our
shoulder to the wheel of the next decade and roll up
another record which will reflect still greater fame on
our fair province, and create even greater prosperity
for its Industries, its communities, its individuals.
Read these announcements and understand your province's
progress ... clip them out and send them to friends. If you
desire extra copies of these announcements a note to thit
newspaper will bring them. Advertise your Province!

was just as prosperous from 1903

The Conservative Government
was oritioized, because in 1916 its
bonds sold for 86, but this was
oaused by England shutting down
on all money going out of the Empire during the war.
The taxes averaged, during the
Conservative regime, 8i million
dollars eaoh year and now they are
over 20 million dollars. The taxes
paid today average $35 per head
for eaoh person, while for the rest
of the Dominion it is $14.50 per
In Vanoouver during the last
three elections the Liberals have
been appointed to power, and it is
significant that not one of the men
who were elected in 1924 would
consent to run in this election-
Tlie Liberals took the credit for establishing the large industries in
the Province, while in reality allof
them, Anyox, Ocean Falls, Swanson Bay, Powell River first commenced to operate under the
Conservative regime.
Next the Provincial Debt was
discussed, Mr. Donaghy has stated
that it is 46 million dollars, accord
ing to Premier MacLean it is 74
niVilion dollars, and the advertisements issued when the Government
was selling its bonds say that it is
86 million dollars. This debt was
estimated by them as on the nonproductive part of it, while that
which produces even a small percentage of itself is uot accounted
for in the total debt.
They have said that they borrowed money on the lowest terms of
any province that is 4.42 interest,
but they have evidently forgotten
about New Brunswick who borrowed at an interest of 4.38 or .4
less tluin any other province.
They have invented over 100 new
licenses and taxes, among them the
license on mining claims. This
was an action supported by the
Premier, to tax prospectors on the
profits that they made on the sale
of claims, and only that part to be
exempt which they can prove was
spent on that one group of claims.
This was not made a law as the
Conservatives in the House protest
ed too vigorously and it is now ou
the statute books but can be made
law only by Order-in-Council-
The present Government   says
that the Provincial   government
would not be shown the same consideration by the Dominion government were the Conservatives returned  tD power   But said    Mr.
Baxter their wants would < be just
as well investigated and theirclaims
shown the snine consideration.   In
fact, the Liberal Government in
I Ottawa gave the last conservative
government about $100,000 a year
1 which is a greater amount than the
I subsequent Liberal government has
I received.
The Liberals have taken a lot of
loredit for their social  legislation;'

p ROOF that the St. Lawrence route is rapidly in-
creasing in popularity and that an era of continued prosperity is predicted for her ports, is shown
by the addition of four new cabin class liners of the
new "Duchess" type to the Atlantic fleet of the
Canadian Pacific.
The Duchess of Bedford, leader of this quartette
of the largest liners to Montreal, arrived in that port
at 8,45 p.m. June 8th, having completed her maiden
voyage in exactly seven days after leaving Liverpool.
The liner is over 20,000 tons gross register, is oil
burning, two-funnelled, and measures 600 feet in
length and 75 feet in width. She will carry Cabin
Class, Tourist Third Cabin, and Third Class passengers. In each class broad deck space is available,
•nd accommodation is far superior to more expensive
quarters on Atlantic liners of not long ago. The three
sister ships of the Duchess of Bedford, now under
construction in the shipbuilding yards of the Clyde,
are the Duchess of Atholl, Duchess of Cornwall, and
Duchess of Richmond,
•The discoveries of radio engineers have aided ln
making the Duchess of Bedford an outstanding marine   personality.    For   instance,  while   tho   ship's
music is relayed by means of microphones and amplifiers to the Tourist Third Cabin and Third Class
Lounges and decks. Loud-speakers also simplify the
transmission of orders to the forecastle, crow's nest,
and docking-bridge.
Other interesting facts about the construction of
the Duchess of Bedford are that the twin propellers
weigh 16 V4 tons each, and the 186 foot steel shafts
connecting them with the powerful turbine engines
weigh about 108 tons. Nearly two million rivets were
used in the ship, totalling 1,000 tons in themselves,
some of the plates having as many as (60 rivets each,
The advent of the "Duchesses" greatly increases
the passenger and freight services maintained by the
Canadian Pacific on the St. Lawrenca route. The
schedule of passenger sailings had already been increased this summer by speeding the "turn about" of
the Empresses from a four-weekly basis to meet the
expected expansion of traffic. The "Beaver" class of
ships, newcomers to the St. Lawrence also, have been
placed by the Canadian Pacific on an exclusively
freight service. They run regularly between Montreal
and London and continental ports, making almost as
good time as the passenger liners. ALICE ARM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD,   Friday.    July  13    1928

this movement started during the
time of the Conservative Government aud has aggrandised since
because of the groater demand for
it after the war.
Many of the reforms which the
Liberals olaim are a direct result
of some Acts passed during the
Conservative regime, and a few of
them were started in this way.
In 1904, the coal miners were
given the 8 hour day and this was
applied to Smeltermen in 1907-08-
An Act was passed to give greater safety protection to the safety
of men working in the factories.
The married women were granted the right to own property.
The first women's vote was instituted by the vote being given
to the relatives of the men overseas, then this movement spread,
and the franchise was put to a vote
and passed by an overwhelming
majority only needing an Order-in-
Council to make it a law. But the
Liberals upon coming into power
drew up an entirely new Act and
took all the oredit for giving women the vote.
The Workmen's Compensation
Act also, was first introduced in
The Minimum Wage Aot is really
a joke, Mr. Baxter says, as there
are men of 21 years in Vancouver
who work for $12.50 a week.
The Old Age pensions Act was
first passed through the Dominion
House and was strongly surported
by both parties. The Premier said
that the Government paid $400,000
in old age pensions but they pay
only $200,000, the Dominion Government paying them dollar for
dollar. By this Act a person
must live in B. C. for 20 years to
claim the maximum pension of $20
a month, and is granted only to
those over 70 years of age. Also if
a person has a home they must
deed it over to the Government before they can receive a pension.
The contracts given to friends of
the government and worked on the
Cost Plus 10 per cent basis wastes
the Country's money and make the
contractors careless of expenditure.
The Soldiers' Settlement plan
has been another way of squandering money; the land was bought
at fabulous prices, costing approximately $1,871,000 and only 80 of
the original soldiers' families live
on it now.
In referring to the P. G. E. railway, the speaker said that in 1911
Sir Richard McBride asked Sir
Wilfred Laurier for permission to
build the P. G. G. railway, tapping
the main line of the G. T. P. at
Prince George and transporting
the freight for Vancouver over this
new line, and thus opening up the
Pemberton Meadows district.
This permission was granted and
in 1912 it was put before the people
of B, C. with the result that not
one Liberal was returned in that
election. The contract was given
to Foley, Welch and Stewart, millionaire contractors, who arranged
for capital with concerns in Britain
but the war broke out and England forbade all oapital to leave
the oountry. So the grvernment
loaned them $6,000,000 extracting
from each of these men their   per
sonal bond that the debt would be
paid. In 1917 the Liberals deoided
that they would build the road
themselves and released these men,
who were well able to build the
road, from their bond. Since then
they have squandered 300 million
dollars on the railway.

At the annual meeting of Hollinger Gold Mines the statement was
made that the ore will hardly average $7 a ton from top to bottom
of the mine.
British Columbia is Canada's
largest producer of zinc, copper,
lead and silver; second of all minerals and gold, and third of lead;
with a total mineral production of
over a billion and an annual production of $62,000,000.

In 1811 a Rhode Island farmer
dallied to release his pig from a
fence and arrived at the polls too
late to cast his vote. The Federalists lost that precinct by one vote,
as a result a representative who
favored war with Great Britain
was elected to the legislature,
which in turn by a majority of one
elected a United States senator
who favored war. Then the U.
S. A. Congress by r majority of
one declared the war, which is
known as tho war of 1812, and in
which Canada played a prominent
part. This incident should be
digested by the man who cays,
"Shucks, my vote will not make
any difference." The vote slacker,
by not voting, expresses indifference
as to what kind of government we
have, good or bad. The ballot is
the foundation of popular government. By wise use of the ballot,
citizens can remodel our political
and economic institutions. In short
we can have any kind of government we want. Your lone vote
is not so unimportant among the
thousands, remember the Rhode
Island farmer, whose failure to vote
caused a war, a useless war, involving the sacrifice of many lives.
Next week, on July 18th. you will
have an opportunity of participating in the decision of which
political party will govern the
province for the next four years.
Be sure to cast your ballot. Vote
without fail.

The deal on Big Missouri, so

market, will be known one way or

from a source close to the Big

So far the Consolidated Mining
and Smelting Co. has given no
direot indication of whether or not
it intends to make the final payment of $100,000 on the Big Missouri bond. Its agreement with
the oompany that formerly held
the property stipulated that notice
of intention must be given 10 days
before July 21, the date on whioh
the payment falls due. Thus next
Tuesday or at latest Wednesday
the answer to the riddle should be

in soliciting your vote on behalf of the Conservative Party,
I wish to say that I honestly believe that the time is ripe for
a change of government,. And that after July 18th. a new
government will conduct the affairs of this province in a
sane, businesslike manner. It is twelve years since the
present government took office, and while we have advanced to some extent, we have not kept pace with other
western provinces. Our advance should have been much
greater, especially in this northern portion of the province.
If elected it will be my earnest endeavor to hasten the
development of our northern mining riches, and support at
all times legislation of benefit to the province as a whole.

If, he said, Premier MacLean had
conducted a private business as he
had government affairs he would
have been let out long ago. He
further criticised the government
and explained how the absentee vote'
would be carried out.
Capt. George Black, was the
next speaker. He proved to be
eloquent, and presented a mass of
information in a quiet, unassuming
yet forcible manner. He covered a
large field, only a portion of which
it is possible to publish.
He said that the government
should give all possible aid to mines
during initial stages. He likened
British Columbia to a corporation,
that at stated terms must come to
the shareholders for approval or
disapproval. In selecting a government, he said, choose one that will
suit you best, and look at things
along broad lines. Any work done
by the government is done with
your money, you are paying for it.
The speaker produced a mass of
figures in contradiction to Liberal
statements regarding the financial
position, and quoted J..T. Shaw of
Alberta as saying that B. C. was a
horrible example of spendthrift zeal
in Canada.
In regard to the Old Age Pension
Act he said that the Conservatives
had always been in favor of it.
The present $20.00 per month was
inadequate, in fact it was an insult.
Reviewing the chances of a
change of government, he said
that at the last election, when the
conservatives were split in two, the
liberals obtained 24 per cent, of the
vote. The remaining 76 per cent,
being divided among the Provincial, Conservative, Labor and Independent parties.
Canadian Debt Reduced Last
Canada's net debt was reduced
during the month of June by $5,-
560,000, according to a finance
department statement just issued.
The net debt at the end of June
was $2,244,142,000.
