A THOUGHT
WHILE it is too early as yet to deal
with the actual results of the election, still
it should be safe to review briefly a phase
of the outcome, namely, that no party appears to have a safe majority over all
others in the House, coupled,with the fact
that some exceptionally good men have
been elected by all parties, which should,
in turn, reflect beneficially upon the public
life of the country, as well as having considerable bearing upon the legislation of
the future.
A form of group government is apparently what the Province will get for some
time to come, the merit of which is at all
times a very contentious point. There are
many who hold the view, and not without
a certain amouut of justification, that
group government does not react to the
fullest advantage of the conntry as a
whole; then again, there are those who,
taking the opposite view, contend that
better results are obtainable-mad for a
present day example point to the Ramsay
MaoDonald Government of Great Britain.
Both points of view can be justly advanced
Though as a matter of fact the' Government of B. C, to be, may not in tbe strictest sense of the word be a group government, it appearing as more likely that a
scattered minority, representing two or
three lines of political thought, may control the situation by holding the balance
of power between the Liberal and Conservative parties.   If so, a situation is thus
created that has  not  existed  in B. C.
for some 15 years, when Parker Williams
and James Hawthornethwaite sat in position of control.   This, it will be remembered, resulted in the adoption of some
very excellent legislation, particularly the
famous Settlers' Rights Bill, which it is
safe to say would never have become law
if it had not been for the unique position
of these men.
It was in these days of weak majorities in British Columbia's Legislature that
the foundation was laid for the prosperity
that culminated in the financial crash of
1912.
McBride succeeded to the Premiership
at a time when the Province was almost
bankrupt, and for years conducted the
Government of the Province with the Socialists holding the balance of power, during which time, with the assistance of his
very able Minister of Finance, Captain
Tatlow, he placed the Province in a very
enviable position financially. Later, in
the days of big majorities, a credit budget
dwindled into a debit. The same can be
said of many other Governments, and the!
question the man on the street often feels'
inclined to investigate is, do large majorities mean
large expenditures, which bear the fruit of debt
and consequent heavy taxation?

opening up for profitable development thc ferule tern-
tory lying between.
Thc Bank of Montreal ��ignalucd the a>��m kuon af the line by establishing a branch at Vancoum and later at Victoria, thus completing its
transamunenul chain of Branches and bringing to die Pacific Coast
