While the time Is not opportune for

he was invited by tlie local executive
to speak and was glad to give any information that hc could, At tlie present time we are engaged in a gigantic struggle. It Is a matter of pride to
British Columbia tliat sn many of her
young men have responded to go Into
that veritable inferno of shot and shell
and poisonous gases, The soldier represents our hlghtest type of cltizon-
ahip. The outcome will be that British institutions will be pteserved. Tlie
way may be long but he trusted tliat
we may be able to welcome our men
home again. The call of the empire
has called out tlie highest type of citizenship. There is a great lesson to
be gained from tbis conflict. The sume
qualities that the soldier possesses
should be Injected Into thc political life
of this province.
The people of British Columbia huve
been too easy going, with too much
toleration for wrong-doing and misconduct. The electors are beginning
to awaken and to bold the searchlight
against the conduct of the rulers of
the province and to cull them to account
Some time ago un untiuoncemcnt
waa made by the prime minister thnt
an election would be held on April
10th. Dissolution was asked for nnd
granted by tbe lieutenant governor.
This Is now thc 25th day of May and
no one knows when an election wlll
take place. Following the tlrst announcement there was a ready response. Men of high standing, excellent records and men of capacity
were nominated by the Liberals to
contest the various seats. Conservative candidates wero also placed in the
Held. Then came an announcement
of a postponement whieh was necessary for a few further weeks on account of thc voters' lists, uerordlng
to the premier. That statement was
doubted at the outset. Sinee tt lias
become a well known fact that dissension among the McBride followers
was responsible for the postponement.
It ts a lamentable condition when you
cannot rely upon the public statements of officials of the government.
We can do no less than charge the
McBride government with trifling with
the electors.
The government Is now faction rent
and In a chaotic condition with a
gradual dissolution of the machine
taking place. I predict tliat at the
next election there will be a change
of government for the good of the
people. We have had keen contests
In Cranbrook in tlie past but I believe
that at the next election you will return the candidate who will assist ln
forming a new Liberal government for
this province and who will give us
the benefit of his experience in legislative work.

bankrupted but they are leaving a

Some of the ways in which tlie
money has gone has come to tight.!
There was the payment of $80,000 *
graft money In the purchase of thc
Songheos reserve; $80,000 In the pur-,
chase of the Kltsilano reserve paid lo
two party heelers for two days work \
eacli. If people do not exercise their'
franchise of tlie ballot properly what;
will stop those graft payments In the;
future? The people are acquainted
witii recent events in Manitoba, whioh I
tbe speaker likened as the twin brother of tbe British Columbia govern-!
ment. A recent writer after touring
Canada from coast to eoast had writ- J
ten to Ids magazine. "There are two
provincial governments, British Co-
lumbla and Manitoba, which are a
travesty on representative government and a disgrace to civilization."
The Manitoba government rather than
face Investigation ran away. If-
there was an investigation in this
province over the last few years, the
speaker was sure, that greater frauds
would be uncovered than In Manitoba.
He asked tbe audience if they thought
there had been any leakage in the expenditures on trails, roads and
bridges?   Cries of "Hear, hear."
The many commissions were then
pointed to by the speaker. The Lubor
commission cost $40,000 and no results had been obtained.
The Agricultural commission cost
$48,000 and the result was the Agricultural Credits Bill designed to give

of tin* Creston Review agrees, although
be thinks Mr. Cnven would make n
better minister of agriculture. Hacked
by the press doubtless either of these*
positions would be at Mr. Caven's disposal if lie would care to accept.
Wo trust Mr. Caven's peevishness

of education, has disappeared from
the capital. His whereabouts are being kept a secret. Mr. Bowser stated
before he himself left for a destlna-

gone to the country." Tliis probably
accounts for the mentioning tn Victoria political circles of the name of
the Hon. member from Cranbrook, Mr.
Thomas D. Caven to succeed Dr.
lt is whispered that Dr. Young is
not likely to recover from a severe
nervous trouble which has been settling upon him for the past two years.
The word "con" Is quite popular

that they have been "conned" out of

traveller reports that at the present
time no amount of "con" will raise an
inkling of interest in prospective customers. Ono of tho early uses of
"con" was the railway "Con."' He Is

from the firing line.     I have been at
brigade headquarters    for over   twoi
months as despatch rider.     I had no
rifle, but when I heard the bullets go

Germans got to within fifty yards of

I did not lose any time I can assure
you. Every second counted. I had
lots of bullets to speed me on my

they came up two hourB later It fell
to them and the 10th battalion to
drive the Germans back.
There was a big wood about three
hundred yards from headquarters, full
of Germans, estimated at 7,000 men.
Two thousand Canadians charged the
wood, gave them the cold steel, cleared them out of the wood, recaptured

The policy of the government has
been one of exploitation In pjace of
development. Look at the condition
of all the lending resources of this
province—lands, lumber and mines.
The lumber industry has been milked
for all that wns in it. The lands huve
been disposed of in large areas to
foreigners and speculators. After the
beBt lands were alienated at $2.50 per
acre the second grade ldnds were advanced in prices from $5.00 to $10.00
per acre, which was good business for
the original speculator, but the result
has boen detrimental to the agricultural development of the province. We
have ii wonderful mineral zone on St.
Mary's river and on Perry Creek, but
uo assistance has been given nnd no
effort made to ascertain whether those
properties wero worthy of development. The government department of
mines should be given the necessary
assistance for development,
I believe that both Sir Richard McBride and Sir Robert Borden should
make definite iiuuouucemeuts con-
corning elections this summer so that
the people might forget these matters
nnd go about tlieir business or continue to prepare definitely for the con-
test. After these months of rumor I
believe that the people have a right to
demand some definite statement.

9. So far as is known, prisoners of
war In Germany are allowed to write
letters or postcards from time to time,
but they may not always have facilities for doing so and tho fact that no
communication is received from them
need not give rise to anxiety,
What hardships they endured!
From purest nature tliey were taught,
While clearing up the wood.
To always labor for the right.
Our nation's common good.
These, their sons, for Britain's light
Against tho tyrant's furious might,
These, ln whose breast a flro burn
For   Llbeity   and   Right,   forever
When at Ypres the battle they fought,
They   showed   the   lessons   their
father's had taught,
When facing danger to be bravo,
And never to fill a coward's grave.
These Canadian boys at Ypres stood
As firm as solid rock,
They fought tlie same as their father's
In the days of Sir Isaac Brock.
Our heroes here they fought.
And turned the battle tide,
They   paid   the   price   that   victory
Though thousands of them died.
On the Germans came, tho thousands
The Canadians heed them not,
Nor flinched, nor feared their cannon's
But bayonet's them on thc spot.
Till thousands of the de:-.d lay round,
Their blood like water flow,
Still like veteran clicIi one stood.
His face turned to the foe.
Until the victory It wan won,
And stemmed tho German tide,
For lt passeth far the deeds of old
And stands with Britain's best.
