PATRICK DALY
SUCCESS in mining is as a wheel
rolling down the hill of life. Men mass
science, skill, experience and money in an
attempt to arrest and capture it, but by
some queer little twist or bump it unexpectedly veers off, and passes just out of
reach, continuing its headlong course,
leaving its would-be captors breathless as
PHENOMENAL COINCIDENCE
As civilization progressed westward,
problems never before encountered in the
daily lives of the people presented themselves, with the result that necessity
forced the pioneers to be intensely practical, and continually on the lookout for
better and simpler methods.
As a result of this, what might be
termed a mental condition, two men in
this district have within the past year perfected mechanical inventions that in their
particular sphere introduce radical changes for the better in motor car construction.
The first, Hugo Stratford, formerly
in charge of the Stewart power and water
to how they missed. ���	
A year or so later down the  hill  of j plant, later head mechanic at the Premier
time, others repeat the attempt with the|mine, and still later again* in charge of
same result. Others try, and still others,
but fate seems obdurate, and the world
becomes cynical and pessimistic in their
exclamations that it can not be done,
when lo, an old white-haired prospector,
who left the Emerald Isle a half century
the Stewart power plant, perfected a def
erential gear for motor cars, which he
has amply protected.
The second, W. R. McDonnell, of Hyder, Alaska, owner of a motor stage line
from Stewart to Premier mine, has per-
ago, with nothing left but a memory  of'te^d   a  new  and   genuine  four-wheel
the green hills and thatch-roofed cottages
and his "ould Mither sittin" by the fire,
secures the necessary financial support
and while the world grown cold with pessimism looks on and smiles tolerantly, he
brake, that is simplicity itself and does
away with 186 parts at present in use. He
also has protected his invention.
It  appears rather phenomenal that
both   these   improvements   should   have

happened? He has the wheel, he is stopping its headlong pace. The world gasps
for breath, that blight to all human endeavor, the pessimist, is sarcastic in his
disappointment. A mine is made. Accomplishment is complete. Employment,
happiness and wealth are given to the
werld.
So it was with Premier, so it is now
proving to be with Big Missouri. ��� Patrick
Daly, that son of Erin, laughed at by some,
men in a district as remote as this from the world,
constituting, as they do. improvements for which
the entire mechanical world has for years been
looking.
The snow, ice, and precipitous mountains of
these northern regions, presenting, as they do,
many and varied problems, appear useful, not
only as the producers of great mineral wealth,
bnt also conducive to inventive genius.
The district is proud of these two clever
young inventors, whose activities are taking them
into larger field*, and will watch with personal
[interest and pride their march to success.

H. W. M. ROLSTON & CO.
Portland Canal Stock Specialists
Rt. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King
Premier King Has Said
"I Promise tAe West Impartial
Justice and Equal Treatment"
His famous Order-in-Coun-
i'il is concrete evidence that
he means to carry out this
policy.   The Order reads:
"The Committee are of the opinion
that the policy of equalization of
freight rates should be recognized as
bi-injr the only means of dealing equitably with all parts of Canada, and as
a means of encouragement of industry
und agriculture, and the development
of export trade."
Contrast this policy with
the statement of Mr. Meighan, which his followers - the
Conservative Candidates -
will he compelled to support
by reason of the pledges of
the Conservative candidates
in the East.   Meighan said:
"There has been a measure of relief for the West by means of equalization of freight rates, which is utterly indefensible."
There you have the policy
as it will be applied to the
West, of the two parties who
now ask your endorsation.
The policy of the Liberal
Candidates is to populate the
West.   Population will come
where it is profitable to live.
Open Canada's natural trade
routes to the world's markets, for the tremendous natural resources of the West
Equalize freight rates Westward, and you will have
turned the key that unlocks
the door to prosperity.
A definite example of what  these <li*
criminating rates are costing the VVost
as they affect the fruit growers of British
Columbia���is found in these figures:
From Grimsby to Montreal, it is 390
miles���and the rate is 95c per 100 Ihs.
From Vernon to Calgary, it is 340
miles���and the rate is $2.40 per 100 lbs
The same discrimination is applicable
to all lines of Western production. This
is startlingly evident when you ascertain
that in the six years previous to 1921, the
West contributed $174,000,000 net profit
to the Canadian Pacific���while the Easl,
with its greater population, contributed
but$81,500,000...1esB than half.
You must decide whether the mun you
send to Ottawa shall be controlled by the
Canadian Pacific Railway and the Inter-
ests of the East���who, for narrow, selfish
reasons are antagonistic to the West���or.
whether you will send a man to lupport a
leader in the person of the Rt. Hon. W. I.
Mackenzie King, who believes he is serving the best interests of the whole Dominion by giving impartial justice and
equal treatment to the West.
