WHY THE  NEGLECT?
NO AMOUNT of bluster on the part
of Premier John Oliver will compensate
the people of this province who, living in
out of the way places throughout the north
find themselves unable to vote on any pie-
becite, or at any other form of election
that may, curing the coming six months,
present itself, due to the Government having given such absurdly short notice of the
closing of the voters' lists, preparatory to
a court of revision.
Certainly what the Premier  says  is
talked of plebecite is taken, or any other
form of election during the coming summer, numbers of people in this district will
find themselves without a vote, unless, of
course, they wish to go to the expense of
leaving their employment for a matter of
at least one day, and possibly a week, and
traveling from four to fifteen miles over
what people in the south would consider
impassable roads, and then possibly by
boat a matter of about 100 miles to Anyox,
where it is advertised the court of revision
for Atlin will be held.
Is there an ulterior motive for this, or
is it just rank carelessness and neglect of
the district? If it is the former, what is
the idea? Could it be possible that it is to
curtail the voting strength of the Portland Canal? If it is not, but simply a
matter of carelessness, then it is high time
that more attention were paid to the district, with a view to preventing a repetition, and that some special concession, if
such is possible, be granted to enable those
who have not been able to get their names
in on time, to still get their names registered. The miners, prospectors and other
workers of the Portland Canal are just as
much entitled to vote as residents of any
other section of the province.
Just one final word to the Premier and
the Government. No amount of bluster
or noise on their part will do either themselves or this district any good. The people of
this district, like those of the rest ofthe province,
laboring under the lash of heavy taxation, have
at last bpgun to use a little of their own intell -
gence, and the sooner this  fact is realized,   the
