Fred Stork Opens His
Campaign With Stirring
Fred Stork, member in the
House of Commons in the last
parliament, and again liberal nominee in the present contest, opened
his political campaign in this district, when be addressed a well attended meeting at the Alice Arm
Coliseum on Thursday. He was
assisted by George Casey, who is
well known in the district, and
who has always taken an active
part in politics.
H. Fowler conducted the meeting, whioh he opened with a short
address, in whioh he stated that
the only reason he could see in Mr.
Nickerson taking the field was
that he had an axe to grind. Mr.
Nickerson had stated in Prince
Rupert that should he receive the
liberal nomination he was ready to
fight for the liberal party. Mr.
Fowler said that the Mackenzie
King government had not been
afraid to go to the people as had
the Meighen government who had
hung on to office as long as pos-
I sible.
. Mr. George Casey was the next
(speaker, and iu a brief address he
said that sometimes the people
were called upon to decide momen-
tus questions, such as the tariff
question, and on these occasions it
was perfectly legitimate for the
people of the west to protect them-
ilves as were the eastern manufacturers. If we could buy tools
aud machinery necessary for the
developing of our resources
cheaper under a low tariff, then if
we use good judgement we, would
vote for a low tariff.
The speaker defended the railway policy of the Laurier govern-
| ment in building the i G. T. P. to
' Prince Rupert, and stated that
h disasters such as the. death of Chas.
1 Hayes, the defeat of reciprocity
i with the United States, coupled
| with the fact that the west was
t overboomed, was greatly responsible for the relative slow progress
I made in making the railway a pay-
fling proposition.
Mr. Casey said   that   he   was
Ij never  a   member  of  the  liberal
,■ party.   The only party he ever belonged to was the labor or social-
list party, but in the past he had
■always been a supporter of  Mr.
Ij'Stork, and had no cause to regret
Kit.   He believed the best interests
I of this district would be served by
| returning Mr. Stork.   The liberal
I party  were  the  friends  of   this
I north-west, and it would be. folly
[to turn them down after doing so
much in developing it.   In touoh-
jing on the   candidature  of   Mr.
Niokerson he stated that the man
Jiiadn't got the slightest chance to
]win, and  what on earth   oaused
jiim to contest the seat   was   a
Fred Stork, who was in fighting

jiolitioal situation from all angles*

Mine Club Melodians
Visit Alice Arm
Last Saturday evening was an
auspicious event iu the history of
Alice Arm, the occasion being a
visit from the Anyox Mine Club
Melodians who entertained at a
dance at the Alice Arm Hotel.
Almost the entire population of
the town were on hand in response
to the open invitation and a most
enjoyable evening was spent.
The celebrated orchestra of the
Mine Club, who have an enviable
record in the smelter town, lived
up to their reputation in every respect, and the visitors from town
were delighted with their superb
rendering of the various numbers.
A large numbers of Anyox folks
availed themselves of the opportunity to make the trip. - some of
which extended their visit for a
few days. The supper supplied by
| the Hotel was dainty aud appetising, and everyone wished that the
Mine Club Melodians will shortly

Building, Vancouver, B. 0.
The first political speech in connection with the forthcoming
Federal election, to be held on
Ootober 29th. was given at Alice
Arm by G. W. Nickerson, the candidate of the Progressive Party.
He was assisted by Wm. Montgomery, who also acted as chairman of the meeting.
The meeting was held in the
Coliseum on Wednesday evening,
and considering the short notice
given, a large crowd was present,
who listened attentively to both
Win. Montgomery introduced
Mr. Nickerson, and stated that he
had known him for the past 10 or
12 years, and that he was a man
;who was progressive iu every sense
of the word. He was not of the
rubber stamp variety, and was, in
his opinion the most capable man
we could send to Ottawa.
The speaker stated that both old
parties were owned and controlled
by eastern manufacturers, bankers
and the C. P. R., and they would
not develop the west, and in order
to obtain our rights we must consolidate. The Liberals and Conservatives are the same exeept that
one party is in power and the
other is out.
His opinion of the tariff was
that it is too high and said that if
the Conservatives raise the tariff,
it will drive still more Canadians
to the U. S. A. in order to make a
living, as the cost of living will be
prohibitive if the tariff is further
Mr. Montgomery severely scored
the emigration policy of conservatives and liberals, and said that
their policy had been to bring in
Europeans and so force Canadians
across the international line. The
Progressive policy is to keep our
own people from emigrating, and
if there is enough room for people
from Europe they will come here
without assistance or advertising
on the part of the government
Mr. Nickerson, who proved to be
a fluent speaker gave a short
businesslike address, and gave his
reasons for coming out as a candidate in this election.
Restated that Mr. Stork had
not kept faith with the fishermen
of Prince Rupert, when he promised to help them bar American
fishermen from Canadian Pacific
ports. He said that he had
written a personal letter to Mackenzie King, regarding fishing
conditions in Prince Rupert. This
letter had been turned over to the
Department of Marine and Fisheries, and no reply had been received.
Heassured his audience that personal spleen against Mr. Stork
was not the cause of his running
for office.
Mr. Nickerson argued that if
Mackenzie King had followed the
policy of Sir Wilfred Laurier,. the
Progressive Party would never
have been born. He stated that
the liberals had no mandate, and

His Policy and That of
Progressive Party
1 have decided to offer myself as a
candidate under the banner of the
Progressive Party, which under the
leadership of Robert Forke is mainly
responsible for the construction of the
Prince Rupert elevator, proof of
which is given in the statement to the
press by Mr, Forke when he assumed
the leadership of the party prior to
1924. Condensed, it was about as
follows: "We will support the Liberal Party as long as they are prepared to give vis what we consider to be
in.the interests of the West, one of
which is an elevator at Prince Rupert.
The Progressive Party are also responsible for the reduction in freight
rates on grain moving west, and they
represent the producers of the wheat
that we hope to see flow through this
Therefore, it is in your interests to
get behind these men, the only Party
which still retains faith in Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's policy of rolling back the
map of Canada and making it broader

Community League will
Provide Winter -
On, Monday, October 12th., the
curtain will be rung down on the
summer sports of Anyox by the
Community League, when the big
annual banquet will be held, and
prizes donated to the winning
teams. In spite of adverse
weather conditions the Community
League has successfully carried
through an elaborate programme
of baseball, football and tennis
games, and anyone who has desired to keep lit at either of these
games has had every opportunity.
This happy state of affairs is due
entirely to the work of the Anyox
Community League, and the seoretary, on whose shoulders rests the
largest part of the burden, great
credit is due. Now that the
weather has put an end to outdoor sports, the League is turning
its efforts towards providing entertainment during the long nights of
winter, by opening the Gymnasium. This building was opened on Thursday for basketball,
badmington and indoor tennis, and
Mr. Ed. Ashton will be in oharge
Basketball teams will later be organized, and enough talent is in
sight to operate a number of
teams, of men, women and children.
In order that those of a more
sedentary nature shall not be over
looked, the Community library is
available. The library comprises
4000 volumes and is being constantly enlarged, 100 new books
being recently ordered. The volumes range from light fiction to
technical works by the best authors
of the world, and those desiring to

that rather than face the music,
the tariff question had been handed over to a commission. Both
old parties know that the tariff
can not be raised and is only an
election dodge. He stated that if
eastern manufacturers can not
compete with American goods,
paying 33J per cent tariff, it is
time they went out of business.
In regard to emigration, he said
that under the present policy we
are educating our young men aud
women for the benefit of the U. 8.
A. and until that was remedied it
was useless to bring in more
He stated that the western
freight reduction announced a
short time ago will be a political
football for the next 4 or 5 years,-
and that it would eventually be
fought out in the courts. He took
a crack at the taxation, and stated
that we are paying 20 per cent, in
taxes, and said that it was time
the government cut clown their
overhead expenses in connection
with operations of the country,
i He defended the railway policy
of the Laurier government and
blamed the construction of the
Panama Canal and the war for
the miscarriage of plans. Mr.
Nickerson criticised the management of the C. N. R. under Sir
Henry Thornton, and said that he
had not worked for the interests
of northern B. C. and Prince
Rupert at any time, and quoted
various instances where Prince
Rupert had been discriminated
against. He finished his address
by impressing upon his audience
the wisdom of voting for the Progressive Party, who were the only
party capable of giving the west
The chairman informed the
audience that Mr. Nickerson
would be pleased to answer any
questions, and Mr. R. Armour
asked him what the possibilities
wore for the grain elevator under
construction at Prince Rupert.
Mr, Nickerson, in reply, went into
details regarding grain rates and
stated that everything hinges on
the grain charges made by the
government. If the government
charges 1 oent per ton, and the
harbor tax of 6 cents, as is prevalent in Vancouver can be eliminated, a big tonnage of grain should
eventually come through Prince

als voted against the Progressives on
a resolution endorsing the principle
oil low tariffs, and against the Torys
on one of raising the tariff. The
party that I. respresent stands for a
tariff that will put the development
of our natural resources in a position
where those engaged therein can meet
their competitors in the world's markets.
The old parties have played political football with the problem of Senate
Keforin for years, and notwithstanding all that Premier King had to say
on this question, during the last two
years, his oidy solution is to appoint
more Liberals. We, however, stand
foi1 the principle of an elective Senate.
Only Real Exponent
Liberalism as exemplified by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and his predecessors
has been discarded by the King
Government, leaving the Progressive
Party as the only real exponent of
Liberal principles, who refuse to sacrifice the best interests of • western
Canada aud the Maritime Provinces to
tbe "inonied kings" of Montreal aud
Our stand on immigration is that
the successful and contented settler
is the natural and best immigration
agent, and that it is not in the interests of the country to spend the public
money on propaganda and subsidies
to immigration and shipping agencies,
while our people are emigrating, in
such large numbers, to the United
Vital Local Issues
My stand on vital local issues, such
as i square deal for our halibut fishermen in their home port, a steamship
service for the Island that will have a
tendency to establish a fishing and
farming population by enabling them
to get their produce to market, equal
treatment with Vancouver by our
railway and steamship line, and all
other issues effecting the welfare of
this constituency are well known to
you. For these principles I shall continue to fight.
I will be delighted to discuss all
questions in open debate with the
Liberal and Conservative candidates,
at as many points within the Biding
as can be mutually arranged.
My election will be carried on mainly by friends who are interested in
the welfare of Central and Northern
British Columbia. We have uot the
advantage of an extensive party organization, therefore, it behooves
those who believe that the interests
of western Canada can best be served
through the Progressive Party to do
all in their power to win this election.
His conceded by the press and the
public that tlie Progressive party will
retain the balance of power for the
next Parliamentary period as they
have during the past four years.
Record of Party-
Time and money will not permit me
to visit all points of the riding, therefore those of you whom I do not see
will, I hope, take me on the record of
the Progressive Party which has
stood for the people.
Sincerely Yours,
The Progressive Candidate.

Stork Opens Campaign With
Stirring Speech
Continued from Page 1
that it was a source of satisfaction
to him that he had been able to
hold the friendship of suoh men as
George Casey through three political campaigns, and these things
helped to compensate for the hard
work and worry entailed. This
was the third time he had received
the unanimous nomination of the
liberal party. Since lie had become a member of the House of
Commons he had tried his best to
keep in personal touch with all
parts of tlie riding, but reminded
his hearers that the Skeena riding
comprised live provincial ridings,
and it was difficult to. cover this
vast territory as often as he wished. The Skesna riding was as
large as England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Switzerland combined.
Mr. Stork stated that he had
lived in British Columbia for the
past 36 years, and the latter 17
years had been spent in the north.
Looking back over that time he
could see improvements in every
district, and in spite of what tlie
opposing party said, it must be admitted that we are progressing,
not so fast, perhaps, as some
would like, but still we are making
good steady progress.
In regard to national affairs he
stated that when the Mackenzie
King government took office, they
were saddled with a debt, left by
tlie Meighen government of 250
billion dollars. The interest on
this money alone totalled $140,000,
000 each year, and this had to be
paid before any money was available for other purposes.
. In referring as to why an
election was being held at the
present time, he said that the
government did not have a working majority, and rather than submit to the dictation of the progressives, who supported them
when their wishes were gratified,
the government decided to go to
the people. If the liberals do not
get a good clear working majority
during this election, it has been decided to again dissolve parliament
until this object is attained.
The last parliament comprised
235 members, composed of 118
liberals, 65 progressives, 50 conservatives, and 2 labor members,
and tlie new parliament will comprise 245 members. In order to
obtain a working majority the
conservatives must necessarily
make a gain of 75 seats in addition
to holding those they already
have and the speaker said he was
at a loss to see where they would
get them. Quebec had 65 members and everyone was a liberal.
They may pick up a few seats in
eaoh province he said, but it was
impossible foi' them to acquire 75
additional seats.
In regard to the Progressive
Party, Mr. Stork said they were
dying. During the last election
they had 125 candidates iu the
field and during the present contest
they had placed only 54, they are
therefore not expected to again
control the situation. Although
the Progressives were dying in
other parts of Canada, it was comical to see Mr. Nickerson, he said
trying to inject life into the dying
oause in the Skeena riding. Mr.
Forke, leader of conservatives had
never asked Mr. Nickerson to run.
Some men, said the speaker,
who had a mania for getting into
office, didn't seem to care who they
run down so long as they got into
power, He said that Mr. Nickerson had stated that if he ran Mr.
, Bushby would be elected, and the
speaker. believed that an understanding had been reached between the two in an effort to
defeat himself.
He said that contrary to
statements made by Mr. Nickerson that he was a liberal, it was
found that he had supported the
conservatives in 1917 and again in
Mr. Stork gave a detailed account, of his stewardship during
liis term of office, and showed how
tlie public money had been spent
in the; riding, and also how the
lap fishermen were being elimi-
lated. He also went into details
regarding the C. N. Railway, the
I'l'inoe Rupert grain elevator, and
other projects of local interest,
lie severely scored Mr. Nickerson
for insinuating that ho had double
crossed the fishermen of Prince
Rupert, and defied any man to
prove he was a double crosser.
It was something he had never
done, and didn't intend to start at
his stage iu life.
