Fred Stork and Bert
Kergin Address
The electors of Anyox and Alice
Arm were deluged with a flood of
political oratory during the week.
Both liberals and conservatives
held meetings in both towns, in
an endeavor to enlighten their
audiences as to justice of their
assertions, past history, and
promises of future good government.
Direct hits; side swipes and
anything- to belittle the opposite
party were indulged in. Statements
made at one meeting were flatly
contradicted the next evening.
Those who have attended the
meetings have heard both sides of
the argument, and Tuesday next
will decide whose words carried
most weight.
We are reporting the meetings
held at Alice Ann, and they are,
we believe, much along the same
lines as those held in Anyox. Our
space not permitting every meeting
to be published in detail.
Fred Stork, liberal candidate,
and twice elected to represent the
Skeena riding, made his first address in this district during the
present campaign, at the Alice
Arm Coliseum on Monday evening.
H. F. Kergin also spoke, and Harry
Fowler was chairman of the
In opening the meeting, the
chairman said that the conserva
tives were alwaysready to condemn
every move made by the liberals iu
the Skeena riding. They had
endeavored to block everything
advocated for the benefit of Prince
Rupert, including the elevator.
Everyone must admit that under
Mackenzie King tho improvement
made in the earnings of the C. N
Railway were remarkable and that
the financial state of the country
had also improved for the better.
H. F. Kergin M. L. A. gave an
illuminating and instructive address
He delved repeatedly into historj
in order to convince his hearers
that the liberal party always were
and always will be, the champions
of the masses. He reviewed the
history of the middle ages in Great
Britain and said that the great
reforms in that country were led
by the forerunners of the present
liberal party. The conservatives,
he asserted, were afraid to give the
vote to the people as it may have
[constituted their downfall.
Mr. Kergin said that from 1896
|bo 1911 under Sir Wilfred Laurier,
Canada witnessed an unprecedented era of prosperity. When
ihe conservatives went out of power
n 1921 the oountry was on a
obaggan, and the Mackenzie
[overnment had again restored it's
He said the late government had
educed taxation and the operating
osts of government had been
educed $100,000,000. The liberals
lad passed the Old Age Pension
Jiot, and a conservative senate saw
fc to kill it.

Tariff Question Given
Prominence Conservative Meeting
The conservatives held several
meetings during the early part of
the week in Anyox and Alice Arm.
On Tuesday evening they held a
meeting at the Alice Arm Coliseum
Tlie speakers were Col. Cy. Peck,
who in former years represented
this constituency, and T. S. Baxter,
ex-mayor of Vancouver, the meeting
was conducted by J. A. Anderson.
Col. Peck was the first speaker
and he referred to his pleasure at
meeting so many old friends again.
He produced a copy of the Prince
Rupert Daily News, and said that he
had not seen a copy for the past five
years, but noticed that it carried the
same old headlines, the same old
editorials and the same old type
worn down by printing misrepresentations. He also produced a liberal
leaflet and said it is a lie and a
slander that the conservatives have
no use for the foreign born population, and said its the same old lies,
and such tactics were to be deplored.
The liberals, he said, say that the
custom's scandal is not a vital question, but I believe it is. The liberals have said that they knew something was wrong. Certainly they
knew, for Mr. Sparks, head of the
detectives employed by the Merchants' Protective Association had
repeatedly brought it to the attention
of Mackenzie King, and Sparks!
informed Meighen that all information had previously been given to
the government. The Merchants'
Protective Association were the
people that did the investigating.
Isn't it a shame, he said, that this
money has been squandered on
smugglers and bootleggers instead
of being spent on our mained and
distressed soldiers and their dependents.

Rupert Oddfellows visit
Anyox Brothers
On Sunday September 5th.
Askew Lodge No. 38 received a
very pleasant and instructive visit
from the Grand Master Roy Perry
who was aocompanied from Prince
Rupert by a number of the brethren of Prince Rupert Lodge No. 63
and the District Deputies of Prince
Rupert Lodge and Askew Lodge,
Brothers Ferguson and Dresser.
After a meeting of the Lodge a
very enjoyable banquet was held
interspersed with speechesandsongs
until midnight, when the visiting
brethren left again for Prince Rupert. It is hoped they will not be
long in repeating their visit.
In reviewing Mr. Brady's fitness
as a representative for this constituency, he said that the statements
made by this gentleman during his
recent speech at Anyox made him
ashamed as a Canadian. Mr. Brady
termed Mackenzie King a liar,

Alice Arm Booklet
The publicity booklet, published
by the Alice Arm branch of the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines,
has been the subject of much favorable comment by those who have
received copies at: outside points.
The British Columbia Financial
Times in commenting on the booklet
"We are in receipt of a very attractive pamphlet gotten out by the Alice
Ann branch of the British Columbia
Chamber of Mines, covering the subject of metalliferous mining in the
Alice Arm district, the product of the
Alice Arm Herald press, for which it
deserves considerable credit. The
pamphlet is descriptive of the country
in general, and reviews the mineral
occurrence and mining developments
of the district. The pamphlet is very
informative and should contribute
toward calling the attention of investors and operators to the large possibilities of the Alice Arm district."
The Vancouver Western Tribune
were also greatly impressed, and
voiced their opinion as follows:
"Alice Arm milling interests, represented by the Alice Arm Branch of
the British Columbia Chamber of
Mines, have published one of the most
attractive booklets in the province
showing the mineral wealth of this
wonderfully wealthy district. Begin-
ing with a short description of the
locution and history of Alice Arm,
the writers deal with the facilities of
the highly favored town and camp,
and then describe in detail all the
various properties that make the region one of the. finest on the continent
for mineral riches. No detail is overlooked in this highly creditable work
even a sketch map, showing the district and the mining division, being
included. The Chamber of Mines is to
be congratulated on the work."

That the town of Alice Arm will become a mining centre of
considerable importance within the next few years is the
opinion of numerous influential mining men who have recently
visited the camp. The mining industry is undoubtedly on the
eve of big developments, which means a big payroll and a
much larger town. Increased activity will result in placing
good residental and business lots at a premium. At the present
time lots can be secured at attractive prices and on easy terms.

Tariff  Question Given
Prominence Conserva-
Continued from page 1
The Colonel said that it was preposterous to blame the governor-
general for the present plight of the
liberals. The people would decide
next Tuesday who was right, and he
was willing to leave the matter with
The liberals, he said bad held
office for the past live years, through
trafficking and bargaining with progressives, labor and independents,
and had staggered through with
majorities of three and four.
When a party is wrong vote them
out, whether you belong to them or
not.      He would  vole  against  the
conservatives if they had beei.i found
half as guilty.
Mr. Baxter was the next speaker,
He dealt chiefly with the tariff
question, and proved to possess a
mass of information, which he imparted in a very understandable
manner. He said that the conservatives were instrumental in consolidating the present C. N. Railway
system; they also gave Canada
manhood suffrage and the ladies the
vote. The conservatives have been
in power thirty-four years since
confederation and they did not take
the vote away from foreign born

Proper ageing
healthful beer
X MONG the measures taken in the plants
%g/\ ofthe Amalgamated Breweries to assure
that, the beer made for the people of
British Columbia is of the purest and most
healthful character there is a factor not often
brought to the attention of the public.
That is proper ageing, under the most favorable
conditions known to the science of brewing.
The stability afforded the brewing industry in
British Columbia by the legal, above-board and
Government Controlled sale of beer, by the
glass in licensed premises and by the bottle
in Government Stores, affords the Amalgamated
Breweries an opportunity to maintain an ample
and sufficient reserve that is allowed to mature
slowly and naturally.
The ageing of beer in the plants of the Amalgamated
Breweries completes the physical and chemical processes
that the malt and hops undergo in the course of brewing
and is among the reasons why the people of British
Columbia are provided with beer of high quality.
Pure and healthful beer is the product of the finest
materials plus the utmost care, and most elaborate
and scientific equipment is required. In its making
it is absolutely sterilized, and prolonged filtering
leaves it crystal clear and a delight to the eye.
Then comes the ageing that removes every trace of
the rawness often found in beers that are too
"young," and that makes it bland and digestible—
really a pre-digested liquid food, high in nourishing
The valuable sugars, proteins, mineral salts and organic
phosphorous compounds are united in close and home
genous union, and, most important of all, fermentation
is totally ended, leaving the alcoholic strength low—
4.25 per cent, as provided for by law—and just
sufficient to stimulate the digestive system in the most
favorable manner.
Visitors are welcome at all times to inspect the model plants of the
Vancouver Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,

people of British Columbia is made.

their  tariff against  Canada,   while
we have lowered ours.
Mr. Baxter defined the difference
between the liberal revenue tariff
and the conservative protective
tariff. The liberal policy is to encourage goods to come into the
countryso that the government can
collect taxes. The conservative
policy is to make the goods in Canada, thus giving employment to our
own people, but we don't. Some
say that protection will force up the
price of goods, but it hasn't done in
the United States. A tariff gives
work for everyone and a market for
the farmers' produce.
Less than 100 years ago, the
speaker said the population of the
United States was only 13,000,000,
and at the present time they were
spending money to keep people out.
Their enormous population was
built up by a tariff system. Under
the present: system Canadian manufacturers are in a lot of cases competing with the low wage scales of
Europe. They can't do it and keep
in business.
He believed ip giving a trade preference to the countries forming the
empire, but would look after our
own people first. He said that at
the present time there were hundreds
of idle men'in Vancouver, who were
tramping the streets seeking employment. We let the United States
get away with the Fordney tariff,
and did nothing.
He said that the lowering of the
duty on log'ging engines, put one
firm in Vancouver out of business
and threw 42 men out of employment.
If we raise our tariff we wont
have to spend millions of dollars
persuading people to come here.
The United States don't and never
The speaker ridiculed the Robb
budget and said that it covered a
multitude of sins. The sales tax
was criticized extensively, everyone
pays, from the babe in the cradle to
the old man in his grave. It is
something you don't see, but you
pay and there is no escape. The
Old Age Pension Act was brought
down he said to get the votes of two
labor, men in Winnipeg, and it was
a sham and a fraud. When the
bill was voted on by the senate,
twenty liberal members were absent.

Kergin Address

traiter and grafter, and said he
would rather cut off his right arm
than vote for Mr. Stork, and after
making these wild statements he
then asked you for your vote. Tlie
speaker challenged anyone in the
audience to mention one single
commendable statement Mr. Brady
had said on a public platform in
the district. Mr. Brady, he said
was in favor of putting an export
duty on copper. An export duty
on copper meant that the
Granby Co. would close their
Anyox plant or the men would
have to take a substantial cut in
Fred Stork was the next speaker
and he said lhat since his last visit
here a lot of things had happened
politically. The conservatives say
the vital question of this election is
the custom's scandal, but he con
sidered that there were greater
lish to fry.
The vital question today is who
is to govern Canada. .Regarding
the so called custom's scandal, he
said that smuggling had been going
on since confederation. It was not
new but the volume depended on
the profits to be made. The minister of customs Mr. Boivin, had
known that something was wrong
with the customs department, and
he oalled in three detectives to
investigate. One of the detectives
instead of turning over the in for-
uiation gathered, to the govern
went to act upon, gave it to the
conservatives. H. H. Stevens
made a lot of wild charges in connection with the affair. His only
purpose was to convince the progressives and independents of the
unfitness of the government to
carry on. These wiid charges^ are
easy to make, but they have yet
to be proved. An investigation is
now being carried on by a judge of
the supreme court, who will investigate all charges and make a truthful finding. Mr. Stork said that
when the liberals advocated reciprocity the tory cry was no truck
or trade with the Yankee. The
U. 8. took them at their word and
passed the Fordney Act, which cut
off the Canadian farmer's market.
When the Mackenzie King
government took office in .1921 the
national debt was 2-i billion dollars,
and the interest on this debt each
year was $140,000,000. We had
an adverse trade balance of $29,-
000,000, and in 1926, five years
under a liberal government, we
had a favorable trade balance of
During the past five years, the
speaker said that a large number
of bills had been brought down
by the government. In order to
encourage industry the taxation of
mining, logging, fish and agricultural implements and machinery
had been reduced, and to show
that it had increased prosperity he
stated that the Massey-Harris Co.
of Ontario experienced their best
but one last year.
In order to defeat the government, Mr. Stork said that the conservatives bargained with the
progressives. A grain bill, formed
by the progressives had just passed
tho House of Commons and was
before tlie senate. Mr. Meighen
said if you want this grain bill
passed you must vote out the
government, and that was the
cause of the whole upheavel.
The governor-general was placed
in an embarassing position by Mr.
Meighen when he had te make a
decision regarding dissolution. Mr.
Meighen legally was not entitled
to govern. The members of the
House were informed by flunkeys
and page boys of what had occurred. Don't be stampeded by the
wild statements being made by the
conservatives, he said. Mackenzie
King is going to be our next premier, and he will have a bigger
majority than ever.
