Up Campaign
Dr  Rutledge Brings to a
Close Energetic Efforts of
Last Few Weeks
I They Are Still Going,
I        and Are They
| Coming Back?
Tho conclusion of tbe campaign
came on Wednesday evening, with a
big Conservative Rally nt the
Knights of Pythias Hall, when thc
supporters of Dr. Rutledge gathered
in force, and spent an enthusiastic
ittme together, to the accompaniment of social intercourse. It had
been intended to get the Auditorium
for this event, but though an effort
was made to engage the hnll many
weeks ahead, it wns not soon enough,
for the big hall had already been
spoken for then, presumably for a
sumilar purpose by the other party
organization in the field.
Dr. Rutledge returned on Tuesday
evening from a final visit to the
Windermere, where he spoke at further meetings, along with Col. Spencer, Major H. B. Hicks and others.
if there is going to be a majority for
Dr. King in the Windermere district
and the Columbia riding, Dr. Rutledge and his party could soc no
signs of it, and they searched pretty
thoroughly for it, too. On all sides
there was a welcome for the Con-
'servative party, and lifelong Liberals, not one but many of them, openly stalle in that district that they
have come to the parting of the
parting of the ways, and that they
are now seeing where they must
break away from their old ideas.
On Tuesday evening a concluding
meeting was held at Kimberley
which was quite well attended, the
speakers being Col. Spencer, Col.
Fred Lister, M.L.A., and Sherwood
Herchmer, of Fernie. The skeakers
were all attentively listened to.
With the polling taking place on
Thursday, Dr. Rutledge awaits the
result with the utmost confidence.
He has worked energetically and
thoroughly, and not a shadow of
question as to his methods, or those
who have been working with him,
has arisen. There hnve been no personal references, or questionable utterances in his campnign, and he
has earned the respect of those who
like to see a hard fight fought
cleanly, on whichever side they may

Closing Appeal from
Dr. Rutledge-Country
Needs Conservatives
In closing the campaign tor thc election, 1 regret that
i it hns not heen possible tor me to spend as much time in the
N i-iiy of Cranbrook as I would have liked, so that my appear-
|sj ance on the platform here lias not been as frequent as was
I anticipated.    East  Kootenay is a large and .scattered riding
a and to eiiver il thoroughly lias meant spending a great deal of
I time out of the city, so it has been impossible to meet my
I many friends.   Nevertheless, 1 have felt that with the record
I of my fifteen years residence here, I could safely leave thc
I campaign in Cranbrook in the hands of my supporters.
The enthusiastic reception I have met with in every
| part of the riding has exeeeded all expectations.   On all sides
i people have come out of their way, from portions of thc rid-
S ing a candidate could never be expected to reach, to assure
I mc of their support on October 2')th.   This points to lhc fact
W that a widespread dissatisfaction exists with the regime of the
I Maeken/ie King government, and shows that Iheir policy has
\ not been as universally popular as Liberal speakers would have
f\ the people believe.   Oil all sides there is being offered criticism
S of the campaign of subterfuge which the Liberals have carried
I mi, and their policy of belittling lion. Arthur Meighen has
™ only tended  to bring into  relief  his clear-cut  and  sensible
I policy of tariff revision, by which the existing industries of
fl the country can he put on a belter basis, new industries en-
I couraged, particularly as relating to the development of thc
I natural resources of the country, along with the development
N of a bigger home market for Canadian products whicli the
I growth of the country under such a policy would bring.
Ill regard to the East Kootenay in particular, I feel
I justified in stating that I am just as alive to thc needs and
I possibilities of the constituency as anyone, and would pledge
I myself to work consistently and earnestly for the advance-
I ment of local interests.   This district, in common with the
j rest of thc country, needs the stimulus of a stable and settled
| tariff policy, which is only possible under the leadership of
I Mr. Meighen.
From every part of thc Riding comes the expression of
I opinion for a change of Government.   Everything points to
I the return of a Conservative government on October 29th,
1 and I feel I can confidently appeal to the electorate of East
I Kootenay to .give mc their support at thc polls so as to put
| this district in alignment with the rest of thc country.

W. J. Bowser, K.C, former premier of British Columbia and the
veteran leader of tho Provincial Conservative party in B.C., was greeted
by a crowded hall at the Auditorium
on Friday evening last, and was given
a warm welcome from the crowd. Mr.
Bowser spoke on behalf of Dr. Rutledge, candidate for East Kootenay
in the federal flections, and gave an
address which was very illuminating,
devoting his remarks almost entirely
to the tariff question,
On the platform with Mr. Bowser
were Mr. A. A. Robertson, president
of the Federal Conservative Assoc
iation, A. J. Balment, president of
the Cranbrook Conservative Association and Major H. B. Hicks, who all
spoke briefly during the evening. Dr.
Rutledge who had been announced
to be present also, was at Coal Creek
that evening and could not get back
in time for the meeting.
Mr. Bowser in his speech urged i
higher tariff to improve conditions,
pointing out the fact that while other
nations were increasing their tariffs,
Canada was lowering hers. In giving
a resume of the tariff question since
1878, he stated that history was repeating itself as it always did. The
same issues were before the electorate today as were in 1878, when the
national policy under which Canada
had for a time grown and prospered,
was first brought up. Previous to
the introduction of this policy were
years of Liberal adminstration,
known as ''the soup kitchen years,"
and ever since these days the policy
of the Liberal party with regard to
tariff had never been a definite one,
Free trade, unrestricted reciprocity,
and union or whatever they conceived to be the best drawing bet at the
time of election were among the
policies they had advanced. Sir
John A. Macdonald, being fearful of
the result of the adoption of the Liberal policy on the fiscal freedom of Canada and also feeling that
such changes might be prejudical to
Imperial relations, came forward
with his plan of protection. It was
at this time that he made his famous
appeal "A British subject I was born
and a British subject 1 will die".
Fortunately the appeal was not made
in vain and the Imperial relations
were not impaired. Mr. Bowser
stated that at every election since
the Liberal party had tried to introduce some policy tending to weaken
the ties which have hitherto bound
Canada to the Motherland. In 1911
reciprocity with the States had been
brought forward. In 1917, the
anti-conscription fight was on and
only a few months ago an order-in*
council had been passed appointing
a committee to look into the question of providing Canada with a
new flag in place of the Union
Jack. The premier finding this an
unpopular move had another order
issued cancelling the original one.
Re the premier's position, the speaker poignantly asked, where was the
premier during the war. What
flag was he under then? He also
pointed out the stand that he had
taken fn the anti-conscription fight,
of     1916. With regard to tha
possibility of Canada being absorbed by the U. S. the speaker referred
to an article from the San Francisco
Argonaut entitled the "Exodus from
Canada" giving an account of the
Canadians in the U. S. and the success of Canadians there. Thc way
to stop the exodus was to put
Mr. Meighen in office. The writer
in the San Francisco paper
referred to the feeling with regard
to annexation as it existed in Canada, claiming that it was favored by
the big industrial interests of the
Bast and by American  farmers in

Besides the sorrowing parents

to the aristocrats of the East, this
on account of sentimental ties.
The speaker claimed that he was
not an aristocrat but a "dyed in
the wool" Canadian and that the
question could be settled right In
Canada. The speaker next reviewed
the situation in regard to tho trend
of tariffs in tho various countries
of the world. Mr. Bowser showed
where sixty-three different nations
had raised their tariffs since the
war.  these countries having found
"I can't see that it makes any difference
which party gets in." One still hears this
this said in discussing the election with various people, just as though the issues of the
campaign were something that might affect
eastern Canada, but which could have no effect on East Kootenay.
Here's one way it affects East Kootenay farmers especially. Prairie creameries this
week announced a reduction in the price of
cream of two cents per pound, because prairie
butter for November delivery at the Coast
had to come in competition with the butter
from New Zealand, which could be laid down
in Vancouver for 43c per pound under the new
Australian tariff treaty. East Kootenay
cream prices may be expected to drop in sympathy, which will be a nice dose for the farmers to swallow after they have been hearing
how beneficial this achievement of the Liberal government was going to be to the country.
The Conservative contention has been
that its effect would be to make the western
&    fanner the goat.   That was the statement of
Hon. H. H. Stevens on the matter.   And here
is the proof before it was looked for.
The drop is not enough to make much
difference in the retail price of butter, but that
two cents would look good to the farmers
when receiving their cream checks.
Here's .More Proof
A million and a half dollar beet sugar
refinery has been established at Raymond, Alberta, and the raising of the beet crop there
provides a profitable crop for lhe high.priced
irrigated land that is proving thc solution of
the farming question in that irrigated district,
where it has not been possible to make ends
meet on the ordinary farm crops. The establishment of this factory would not have been
possible but for the existence of a tariff on
American beet sugar, there being close to a
hundred beet sugar factories in the States.
This fact is admitted even by the liberals in
that riding, and Is going to elect General
Stewart, the Conservative candidate there, by
a big majority, against the Progressive, there
being no Liberal candidate in the field,
He showed why even England, which
had been a free trade country was
now forced to adopt a measure ol
protection, having placed tariffs on
many things to protect her people.
No unemployment existed in France
as a result of that country having
raised its tariff wall. The United
States was enjoying the greatest
prosperity because of the very high
tariff wall which she had erected.
The Fordney bill was an indication
of the determination of the American people to not ealy raise the wall
but to keep it up. Through this
high tariff the States have been able
to pay off five billion dollars of
their war debt. He pointed to the
fact that Canada mu the one exception, not having raised her
tariff since the war but reducing it
four times, with the result that
while the other British possessions
had reduced their war debts, that
of Canada had steadily increased.
Australia, whose position was somewhat similar to Canada had wiped
off two million dollars of war debt,
had reduced taxes four times and
shows a surplus this year of ninety
seven million and contributed thirty
pillions for naval defence purposes,
Canada, the premier British possession, had been going steadily further in debt, going back by the
drifting policy of MaeKenzie King's.
Sixty-three countries had raised
their tariff and made every progress
and prosperity while Canada is reducing her tariff and failing to
meet her obligations.
Dr. King Holds
Meeting Here
Single Appearance  In  Campaign on Public Platform
in Cranbrook
. Monday evening a large number
of the electorate of Cranbrook, Kimberley and other parts of the East
Kootenay riding turned out to hear
the policies of the Liberal party a^-
enunciated by Dr. King at the Auditorium in Cranbrook. It was the
first and only appearance of the
Liberal candidate in the campaign,
and with the added attraction of
other prominent speakers from Vancouver, Ottawa and Cranbrook, the
meeting drew a crowd that overtaxed thc capacity of the hall. Thi.s
meeting, as was the case of the onr-
in the interests of the Conservative
party on Friday night was attended
by people of different shades of
of political opinion, and in each
case an attentive hearing was given
to the speakers on both platforms.
At neither meeting was there any
sign of interruption.
At about 8.30 o'clock, the meeting
opened with the singing of O Canada,
.followed by a vocal duet by Mrs.

speaker quoted an article from terms to the candidate and hi-
President Coolldge, who haa show* pieaaure jn knowing that he had pre-
himself to be one of the greatest ferre(j East Kootenay to offett of
American leaders, stating his contention that high tariff was in the
very best interests of the United
States, and that therein that thc
Americans had incorporated agriculture squarely in the construction of
their protective system. The high
tariff had been found good business
with ft big progressive nation like
the United States, why was it not
good for Canada? Can we go on
for another four years aa we are
now drifting, or do we want to follow the example of our neighbors
to the south. The speaker then
named the sixty-three countries who
had recently raised their tariff, noting how France had so much improved its financial condition and how
unemployment waa unknown there
since they had raised their tariff
wall. Germany also had improved
their financial situation through a
highly protective system. He concluded by asking why we could not
be as selfish a% the other nations.
The speaker pointed out that the
Mackenzie King government had
been dominated by the Progressives.
There waa not a single article
where the duty did not work to the
disadvantage of Canada. The speaker asked, are we going to give to
any foreign nation our birthright?
He further pointed out that when
a similar crisis occurred in Eng
land the people had risen in their
might at the polls and had recalled
Stanley Baldwin with his protective

seats in other places. He referred
also to his ability as a statesman and
The next .speaker, Mrs. H. A. McKowan, also expressed her pleasure
in appearing in the interests of Dr.
King, stating that she was there to
help and was glad also to see a large
number of ladies present. She had
no apology to make for those who
viewed with alarm the advent of the
woman speaker.    They had obtained
a gift or had won in other ways
the vote, nnd the politieal courtesies
had been extended to them and they
were pleased to accept. She admitted that her interests in tho candidature of Dr. King \vas more personal than political. "Her rain and
shine habit of voting for Dr. King"
was because she knew a good man
when she saw one. She referred to
the decision of Dr. King to run in
East Kootenay rather than the possibly more protected openings at
the Coast. B. C. being ulloted but
one cabinet minister it was small
wonder that the Coast wanted him.
She considered that thc feeling of
community pride should have
prompted the return of Dr. King by
acclamation, and referred to his connection with every movement in the
best interests of East Kootenay.
He was a "good man for the Issue
and it was good issue for the man".
In concluding, Mrs. McKowan was
given   loud   applause.
In opening his remarks the Liberal candidate expressed his sincere
pleasure in returning to see so many
of  hia  old   friends,  and   new  oncH.
He was pleased to find the encouragement he had met in the last day
or two. He had been elected minister of public works and his district
reached from coast to coast, where
his business was. lt had been,
therefore, impossible to be in East
Kotenay ap often as he would have
liked, but he did as he knew that
they would expect. As a minister
of the crown, it was incumbent upon
him to see that candidates were
placed in the field so that they could
properly carry on. This to his mind
was the most important election in
[ the history of Canada.
On the last election only three
Liberals out of eleven had been returned from B.C. and only six west
of the Great Lakes. Premier Mc-
Kenzie King had determined that
there were questions of such importance that he did not care to decide
them without a stronger backing
from the people. He therefore was
appealing to the country for more
He then renewed the administration of Premier Meighen and claimed that after two years of office he
had gone to the electorate and had
suffered humiliating defeat. "We
have men who say that he can be
returned. It cannot be done".
Such were the words in which Dr.
King expressed himself. He asked
what Mr. Meighen had *ince done to
ingratiate himself. "I know of
nothing" was his answer. He
claimed that his policy had been to
detract from the efforts of government, and he had preached blue
ruin. He referred to the manner in
which he had enunciated his policy
with regard to the present election,
claiming that he had not taken into
confidence his fellow party men.
The Meighen policy, he stated was,
"Raise protective tariff in order that
manufacturers might enjoy more
profits." By raising the custom
tariff he would make manufacturers
happy. He referred to the speech
of Mr. Meighen in 1020 in which at
that time he expressed the opinion
that Canada could never have a high
tariff, because it tended lo eliminate
foreign good.-. He claimed that Mr.
Meighen, having appealed to the
country and failed, was a poor loser,
and had since changed his attitude
with regard to the tariff. He referred to the deficit of eighty-one
million dollars which occurred on
the first year of their taking office,
pointing with pleasure to the $85*-
(100,000.00 surplus in recent years.
This lurplui had been made use of
in the reduction of taxation on the
industries such as mining, fishing
and lumbering and agricultural implements. He also claimed credit
for the reduction of thc sales tax,
which had reduced the taxes of the
country by $10,000,000.00. The
reason for the alleged increase of
the national debt was due to the
expenditures on the National railway It was unfair, he claimed, to
compare Canada with tho United
States. Their position with respect
to the war being unlike Canada's.
With regard to the exporting of raw
material, he claimed that the opposition had failed to act with respect
to this when in power. He claimed
the government had changed an adverse trade balance to u favorable
one of $230,000,000, a- thc result of
which the Canadian dollar was now

bear witness to such ingratitude.

sullenly when overtaken.
Uurehuffed, Jim Fowler extended
a friendly hand. Curiosity as to why
he hud played so Important a pari in
this young mail clerk's life did not
rouse a spark of interest in him, for
to this tramp tlie little everyday affairs of thc world seemed iinrenli:,-
tically far away, remote ami long
ago. For him, now, tile only starkly
real tilings were the rain, the depressing chill, his aching head, and lii-

rather than pleased because lie had
saved members of this human society which he hated as a whole. He
turned abruptly and started away
again, without a word.
Regret and bafflement shadowed
Jim's eyes at tho attitude of this man
who bud saved liis life—and others
—yet seemed to regret having done
so. But Jim's own happiness bad tlie
illimitable elasticity of completeness;
so, he tried again.
"Why are you hcadin' west, 'bo—
there's nothing but barren mountain
passes and a couple of empty section
shucks for more miles than you can

Bob bolted and stared inquisitively
at Fowler. This was a practical suggestion and did not savor of charitable sympathy; but he wailed ironically for the mail clerk to mid an obvious offer of a meal upon arrival in
Crater City, knowing full well that
the still living shreds of his pride
would turn him irrevocably away into thc night if sucli nn offer came.
He was not a handout bum yet,
though this state was perhaps not fur
distant, since every other quality of
his old status seemed tu have gum-
But Jim did not do the expected;
perhaps because his eyes, brooking
lances with Bob's on m physical level in a joust of essentially sound
and honest and manly young personalities, read tho alert defensivo-

Ir it more difficult to play the dummy

two opponents to play against the de-
clarerr 'lhat question has been thc
caupe of much discussion but to the
writer there seems only one answer, lt
ia much moreditlicultfortheopponents
of tin: declarer, The latter can see hts
twenty-six cards and should know the
best way of combining them to the best
advantage. Ilcis not in the dark as are
his opponents, for they must guess as
to thc other's holding and they are just
as ap: to gUCSS wrong as right. Also, in
the opening lead, thc opponents of the
declarer arc at a disadvantage. II partner has not bid, what should be the
opening lead? This is a question that
puzzles the experts at times but the
average player can greatly overcome
t his difficulty by the careful study of a
good table of leads. In playing against
the declarer, try to convey as much
Information as possible tn your partner
by use nt conventional l*ads and discards. Watch your partner's play and
that of the declarer very closely, Try
nut only to make every play of ynir
own cun.ey Information to your partner, but try aljO to learn something
from every play of your partner and of
the declarer.
The following hand looks easy but
unless the proper lead is made, tht
game is lost:
Hearts —Q, J, 8
Clubs —7,4, 2
Diamonds— K, 10, 7,4,2
Spades — J, 4
The dealer bid one spade and all passed.
What is the correct opening lead with
the above hand? The correct lead is the
queen of hearts. Any other lead with
this hand would have lost game. The
player who held it opened the four ot
diamonds, a very bad lead. Never open
a suit containing the king against a suit
bid, if there is any other possible lead.
It is nearly always a trick loser.
The writer has occasionally mentioned
the Law of Symmetry in these articles.
This Law is, in effect, a theory that
there i- a symmetrical relation existing
between the distribution of thc four
suits in any one of the hands and the
distribution of any one of the four suits
among the four hand::. Thia symmetrical relation is well exemplified by the
distribution of the following hand which
came up recently in actual play;
Hearts—J, 9 6
ClubB — Q, 1" 8.(15

Iiii own hand and Y's were divided
S-4-3-1. He also noted that A opened
the six of clubs nnd that I) played the
deuce. If II had held two clubs, lie
would have started an echo to show his
partner that he could trump the third
round of clubs so his play of the deuce
indicated a singleton. Z, therefore, figured that the clllbl were divided 5-4-3-1.
Ile holds five snades and his dummy
three so that if A also held a singleton,
it must be in spades. Therefore the
spades must be divided 5-4-3-1. His

There are no trumps and Z is in the

lead the nine of clubs on which Z should
discard the fiva of diamonds. A is now
up against a discard. If he discards a

good. If A discards a spade, boi h of Z's

discards, therefore,'Will lay A's hand

the trick and leads thc nine of hearts.
What can A now discard but a Spade
or a diamond? If the former, Z's spado
is good; if the latter, Y's diamonds are

Candidate. Read the following Letters From Electors
at Fernie which show plainly that the people are thinking
on the issues of the day, and reasoning them out.
To The Fernie Free Preu
Fernie, B.C., Oct. 22, 1925:
Dear Mr. Editor.—During the last three
weeks there have appeared in your valuable
paper various letters {rom Liberals, espousing thc cause of the Liberal party. I would
deem it a favor if you would provide space in
your next edition for this letter from a believer in the Conservative policy which Mr. Meighen is now askingthc Canadian voters to endorse.
I would like to deal briefly with a few
of the inconsistences of Wednesday night's
meeting held in the interests of the I Ion. Dr.
King. So far as the Gale is concerned which
blew in on the audience that evening, the only
thing he left behind was a rather disagreeable
Ddor in the nostrils as a result of the questionable stories he thought would entertain a Fernie audience.
Col. Thompson is a very pleasing speaker, but a number of his statements require
looking into, and some of them were very contradictory. He told us that Premier King
wanted a majority over all parties in the next
house so that he could put his policies in force,
intimating as the reason he has not done so was
that he only had a majority of one over all parties. Almost in the same breath he went on to
say that Premier King enjoyed the confidence
of the house in the way no other government
since Confederation had, and that he had received thc largest majority ever polled in the
house before. He spoke of Mr. Meighen's famous tariff resolution moved on June 2, and
said tne Progressives voted with the government and gave the majority of 120 in favor of
the government. How can any voter reconcile these inconsistencies?
Oolonel Thompson spent considerable
time on the tariff and immigration question
and impressed strongly on the audience the
argument that if the tariff went up prices went
up correspondingly, and he depicted in rather
humorous language the Canadian lady who
went to Spokane for a dollar's worth of merchandise and was stopped on the border line
and had to pay 30c to 50c duty on her purchase she was trying to smuggle in. He forgot,
however, to tell the audience that she bought
the article much cheaper in Spokane than she
could in Fernie, thus emphasizing the Conservative contention that a higher protective tariff
does not make for higher prices, as the Uni
ted States tariff is well known to be the high
est in the world.
In dealing with immigration, Col.
Thompson spoke of Johnny Canuck going over to the United States for a little while to
earn the $18 per day which he could earn by
going across the border, but he says when
Johnny Canuck has earned some of their good
American dollars he will come back to Canada
to spend it. I doubt it. If Johnny Canuck can
earn $18 per day in the United States he is
going to stay there and keep on earning it as
long as possible. That kind of a country is
good enough for Johnny Canuck to live in.
Why does our youth leave Canada and
go to the United States? Simply because
there is not sufficient work for them here,
while there is plenty of work in the United
The Colonel sprung a new one on me.
He even says that under thc King regime thc
birth rate is two per cent.    Wc knew the tariff
filayed a very important part in our national
ife but never knew before that thc birth rate
was affected by it.
Dr King did not have much to say. He
told us that the government had lowered taxation by reducing thc income tax and thc sales
tax. When the Conservatives went out of office the sales tax in Canada was thre per cent.
Mr. Fielding raised this tax to six per cent,
the first session thc Liberals were in power.
In 1924 they reduced thc tax from six tn five
per cent., which is still two per cent, higher
than that imposed by the Conservative purty.
A nice way to boast of reducing taxes. Dr.
King also boasted of a surplus of receipts over
expenditures. He did this in. spite of thc fact
that our national debt is $200,000,000 more today than it was when the Conservatives went
out of power in December, 1921.
Mackenzie King claims this is the most
important election since Confederation owing
to the fact that if the Conservative party
should be elected on October 29 it will mean
the disruption of Confederation and the lessening of the ties between Canada and thc Motherland.
Do not judge the Conservative party
and Mr. Meighen by Mackenzie King's preelection utterances, but rather by Mr. Mcigh-
en's own statement as expressed by him iu thc
House of Commons on tlte 2nd day of June,
1925, and reported in Hansard as follows:
"We hnve a great people, a greal coun-
try, and a latent power for progress unequalled in this world, I believe unreservedly and
unwaveringly in the destiny of Canada thc
destiny that our fathers decreed, the destinies which already many generations of Canadians have striven nobly to attain — that of
a great, free nation, endowed with an abundant
heritage, conserving that heritage, never
casting it away, never weakly surrendering it to make great any country
but our own, making the most of
our possessions, turning them ourselves to the uses of mankind and in the end finding our natural riches n fleeted in a grander
and more varied civilization, in a lorger national stature, in increasing millions of Canadian homes. 1 believe in tbe destiny of Canada
as a Hritish nation, as the strong son, thc elder
brother, in this commonwealth — to my mind,
to my heart, no other future is thinkable. At tl
without questioning in the lta-t degree the fidelity to that future of any member of this
House, believing as 1 do that beside such a destiny there is for us only one alternative. I
submit the great arliele of policy which my
words today seek to expound as the firmest
safeguard against drifting that other way. Hut
apart altogether from every question of our
relationship to the empire or to the world and
thinking only of the people of Canada. 1 present the principles embodied in this resolution as thc best for ourselves, best for every
interest, best for every province, the principles
surest to lead to the union aud progress of
To The Fernie Press
Fernie, B.C.
Editor, Free Press:
There seems to be a great deal of unrest
in the minds of the people of Fernie over a
speech made by Mr. Bennett in Canmorc some
time ago, in which he said that if he were elected he would insist upon the Conservative
party putting a prohibitive duty on coal in order to keep out the 1-S to 20 million tons of
coal now annually imported from the States:
This is a statement made by Mr. Bennett
in appealing to tlte voters of his own district
for their support in the coming election.
Mr. Meighen has said time and again
that if he is returned to power he will increase
thc duty on all our imports equal to tlte duty
which the United States now places upon similar articles coining into their country, Ilis
policy of further increase in the tariff is definitely laid down in his speech in the House
on June thc 2nd of the present year: "Wc
should have a tariff commission for investigatory purposes, a tariff commission whose investigations will be such that the public will know
more clearly and in more detail the actual facts
as to the industries of Canada, It should be
advisory and advisory only, because never
from the shoulders of parliament ean responsibility be shifted for the determination of tariff and fiscal policy. Such a commission has
been advocated by the Conservative party before. It would be valuable today, and will be
a realized fact if the Conservative party is returned to power. We ean on the advice of a
tariff commission remove a tariff schedule
that protects an industry which assumes monopolistic power, remove a schedule lhal protects an industry that overcharges tl» consutnei
and wc can Impose special excise penalties upon any industry."
Mr. Meighen also says lhal Ibi-. com-
inisson will be composed ol practical business
men and economists who will examine llu- effects of interfering with the lanlf from every
angle. The governmenl will only mnkc changes in the tariff afler the Cabinet agrees with
the conclusions and recommendations » hlch are
made bv the tariff commission,
Ever since Mr. Bennett made his statement about eoal iu Alberta, the Premier, the
Right Hon. Mackenzie King, and mnny oi his
leading lieutenants have Btated mosl emphatically on many platforms iu ami out of Ontario
that no government can plaee a further tariff
against American coal. The Liberals ol Ibis
district seem to plaee considerable confidence
in the Rt. Hon. Premier, and it seems si range
that they should be spreading a blue ruin statement in this district, aud it is doubtful if the
people of Fernie will be misled by such statements from their determination to save Canada from her present precarious position, and
place her in a position similar to that occupied by her prosperous neighbor south of the

Major Hicks of Cranbrook was
present as tne representative of th>
Association of that District.
The Memorial cairn which stands
within the newly fenced club grounds
was draped with the Union Jkek

The commodious club room is very
handsome. It has a fireplace in one
of the corners above which Is

plaque bearing all tne names of

be  added  to.
The building is of log construction, neat in design. It stands upon
a stone foundation and is beautifully finished both inside and out.
From tho scene of toe opening
those assembled passed to an inspection of the new ond up-to-date consolidated school which has but recently been constructed by the assistance of the department of education. It is a frame, one storey

Tbe  Liberals have
les against  the wall,
•ism wliich has been
if lhe past four years,
d they have been forced to resort to a policy of **********
railing against tbe supposed results of the construe- LOCAL
live policy whicli is being offered to the electors asf
the alternative to the indefinite and plastic policy
which thc government bits been trying to develop
during its term, in au effort to please the factions
upon wliich its continued existence has depended.
Premier King from tlie start has shown no
backbone and no consistency in waving the banner behind which his suporters were expected to
rally. As a result of his indecision, there has been
a different Liberal policy for different parts of the
country, varied according to the local temper of thc
people. In the manufacturing centres of tbe east
there has been no talk of free trade. Moderate protection has Iieen the cry. In the luarititnes efforts
were made to blame thc hard times there on to the
effects of the tariff, ignoring tlie discriminatory
treatment given those provinces, the effect of which
has been to make their position even more insulated from the rest of tbe country, In the west
there was the cry of "muzzle tbe senate," and a pi*
fur support in exchange for a pledge to complete
the Hudson Bay railway. lu B.C., the war cry
has been "what the government has done for the
west," how the lowered freight rales will benefit
B.C., and how7 the government is pledged to give
recognition to the west in the grain shipments from
tlie prairies.
One by one thc insincerity of these points is
lieing brought home, and there is no doubt had the
campaign lasted a litle longer lbe Liberal arguments would have become badly frayed. Perhaps
this is thc reason why the government chose to call
for the verdict in almost the shortest time tlie law
allows for the legal proceses involved in connection
with an election. The Liberal campaign in this
province, fur instance, falls pretty flat when in thc
midst of the din being raised about making the prairie grain come westward, the government at Olawa
issues advertising mater in the newspapers of tbe
prairie provinces urging the farmers to ship their
grain to the nearest terminal elevators, and in the
list given Vancouver does not appear at all. Government speakers at the coast vociferously tell thc
electors that immense quantities of grain arc coming
coastwnrds, and in the very territory this grain
should come from, the government is paying for
newspaper space to urge the farmers to ship their
grain east. That is the situation, and it is being
paralleled in other matters of sectional policy the
Liberal speakers have seen fit to touch on.
In contrast to this narrow, opportunist policy, stand the clear-cut declarations of the Conservative party, tbat what the country needs is thc
development of Canada by Canadians and for the
benefit of Canadians,

of a beautiful silver cup. As the

rendered by the doctor last winter,
it being felt that it was due entirely
his efforts that the Club was able
to become as proficient in hockey
as they proved themselves. While
the Club is suffering the loss of their

that this season they will give an
excellent account of themselves,
plans being already under way to
attain this end.

t  Liberal Literature Made in U.S.A.
The Typographical Unions of
Ontario and Quebec have drawn the
attention of other branches of
union labor to the fact that
six pamphlets issued by the National
Liberal Committee, with a circulation
of one million copie8 each, have been
prepared by non-union labor, and in
statement issued to all branches,
it is given out that representations
on the subject to the Premier und
the members of tho committee proved ineffective. Attention is also
drawn to the fact that two other
publications, issued under the direction of Hon. Jas. Robb, minister of
immigration, the one entitled, "Can*
ada West," and tho other "Canada,
the New Homeland," were both

at par, and the finances ot Canada
were in good condition. Their conditions differed from that of Australia which had been pointed out as an
example to Canada, in that Australia had not been burdened with the
large railroad debt. He claimed,
however, with respect to the railroads that thc Mackenzie King government wero bjottering conditions
and that instead oif an operating
loss of $17,000,000. the railways
now showed an operating surplus of
$40,000,000. The railway burden
was a larger burden than thc war
burden. Dr. King referred to thc
bad effect of raising the tariff on
coal, claiming that Fernio, Michel
and Corbin would have to shut down,
through the operation of the Ford-
ncy tariff. He referred to the
straightforward manner In which
Mackenzie King had enunciated his
policy in regard to the freight rates
in thc different parts ot Canada,
pointing out how the government
had instructed the railway board in
the matter. Mr. Meighen had said
the premier's position was unexplain-
able. If Canada was to bc a united
country, there should not be any
placing of the East against the west.
He disagreed with those who
claimed that Mackenzie King would
I not be returned to power. - He could
not sec how it would be possible for
anyone to think of going back to the
policies of 1887. During and after
every war, conditions were abnormal
and Canada was not unlike other
countries.     The    government    had
close. It was Impossible for the
small number of people in Canada
to find a market for all they pro
duce. It was not the intention to
destroy eastern manufacturers where
a large number of people were employed in the basic industries, which
success reflected directly on the
manufacturers. He recalled that
in the 80's men and boys over 18
left for the States to enjoy the prospects there, this at the time of the
high protection. With respect to
the immigration, he pointed out that
were the facts properly looked into,
it would be found that thc King government should be given credit for
cutting the exodus to the States in
half from 1923 to 1924. He considered that the premier should be
given credit by the C.N.R. railroad
men for his success in obtaining
over half their pensions.    He claim-
d that the premier's appeal was
consistent in all sections of the
country. He wag out for moderate
protection that would still allow the
greut portions of western Canada
with industries of fishing nnd farming, to receive the benefits of free
trade. He claimed that it was foolish to talk of annexation. It was
effective in 1911 but could not affect it now. The people are going
to remain Canadians, He suggested
that they give every consideration to
the subject matter before them. No
prime minister of Canada could carry on with one majority. He appealed for their votes and intimated
that last session there were only
six representatives from the west.
He reminded them that it was a fact
that the government lives by the support that it gets. If wc are desirous of building up a trade, it is
necessary to trade back and forth
with the States. He claimed thut
ths raw material exported was not
from crown granted lands nnd only
amounted to 12 !£',■; of the exportable pulp wood. This year Canada
would be the largest manufacturer
of newsprint in thc world. That the
U.S. did export raw material was
shown by the fact thut cotton, coal
and oil were known to be shipped in
large quantities from thc States.
Dr. King concluded by appealing to
the electorate to give him their confidence and appealed for their support to strengthen his hand.
Col. Thompson in his opening remarks eulogized Dr. King, and guvc
his opinion that he was a sure winner
on election night. Going from thc
maritime provinces to B.C. he gave
the situation in tho different provinces, showing in his opinion, how
the Conservatives wuold not succeed. With respect to the tariff and
its effect on trade he showed where
an article bought from thc States
for $1,000 upon reaching the line
had another .30c added on. With
regard to the duty on coal an
creased tariff meant that the people
in Ontario and Quebec would have
to pay higher for Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Virginia coal which they
were obliged to get. Such a national policy might have been good once
but was no longer applicable. He
disagreed with Mr. Bowser's statement that the United States did not
export raw materials. In jocular
mood he referred to Mr. Meighen ns
the new Israel, who gave gave embargo for embargo, and reprisal for reprisal. As to the national debt with its
regard to the national debt with its
relation to the railways, he covered
the same ground as the candidate,
and also with regard to the exodus of
paid every obligation as they came {Canadians   to   the   States,   adding,
two thousand failures in Canada, and.be taken into consideration. He re-
said Mr. Meighen was unable to pro- ferred to the awkward position
duce such a list when asked. With which Mackenzie King found himself

Canada to do so, were the Fordney to the decrease In the rate of inter-
tariff to be put into operation with' est on Canadian loans since King
respect to timber, two-thirds of the' took office, and also the rise in value
mills in  B.C. would be obliged to of the Canadian dollar as compared
to that of other countries.
Mrs. F. H. Miles, the next speaker,
in the opening <>f her address, injected a new tone to political platform
speeches which waa somewhat refreshing. She referred to the work
of the molding and crystallizing of
public opinion ns the power which
enforces laws. The difficulty lay n
teaching peope lo think for them-
ilves. We should have respect for
the opinion of others. It was not
for us to judge tho House of Parliament, they are of our own choice,
the same as the average citizen.
The day of the Bpell-binder was
gone, she said. Today was a matter
of performance and promise, leaving
it to the people In the last analysis
to do what is best for the country.
Tho speaker then launched into the
question of the effect of tariff on
articles purchased in Canada. A
dress is valued in the Stutes as $:i,00
was raised by tariff to a value of
$4.00 in Canada. This would be a
fuir competitive price. She would
not blame ths manufacturers for so
charging. The some applied to
other commodities. Sho referred to
thc recent change in the opinion of
Vincent Massey, the new member of
the Mackenzie King cabinet, concluding with the interpretation of
Canada by Sir Roger Faulkner to
the question, "what is implied in
the   word   Canadian'.'"
The last speaker of the evening
was ex-mayor Gale of Vancouver
who after amusing the audience with
several stories, eulogized thc candidate and discussed various phases of
the questions at issue. lie pointed
out the Important position that H.C,
held with respect to the other provinces, saying that no province
could contribute more to the Buecesa
of Canada than B.C. Ho referred to
the great pun development tlmt had
taken place in Vancouver. Questions of interest to the development
in Ontario were nlso of Interest to
the people of the west. Dr. King
would be the next minister of Public
works, und thought the government
would be returned with the best and
biggest majority. He had seen Dr.
King in action and as he termed it
"His but was niightly fair". The
Conservative cry of "No truck or
trade with the Yankees" which had
held .,nay. would he applied also to
tho Brtti h. lie thought the people
did not wish to appoint Or. Rutledge
from Cranbrook to sit on the opposition  benches,
In concluding he referred to the
great help tha*. Mrs. King had been
to the Doctor while al Ottawa at the
many functions at which she was
called in she always did her part
well. He claimed that Mrs. King
was a booster for B.C. A strong
plea for the support of Dr. King
brought his remarks to a close.

Big Meeting
at Kimberley
W. J. Bowser Assists Campaign  of  Dr.  J. W.
Rutledge There
Under the auspices of the Kimberley Conservative Association, nn enthusiastic meeting in support of the
candidature of Dr, J. W. Rutledge,
took place in Handley's Mall on Wednesday evening of last week.
Beside the candidate, the gathering was addressed by Hon. W. J.
Bowser, K.C.i former premier of
British Columbia, and both speakers
had thc undivided attention of thc
large audience und were received
with applause. Handley's Hall was
filled to capacity, many ladies heing
among the audience.
Mr. Jos. Bell, president of thc association, waa in thc chair, and in a
few brief remarks, called upon Dr.
Itutlcdgc to address the meeting.
Dr. Rutledge, who was well received, expressed pleasure in meeting
a Kimberley audience on a matter of
federal politics, and after expressing
his friendship personally for Dr.
King, went on to relate how Dr. King
had said that he (the speaker) was
riding the wrong horse. Dr. Rut
ledge ventured to suggest that he
knew more of horses than Dr. King.
and that after the 29th it would be
found that he was on the right horse.
Canada possesed vast -resources,
and had wonderful possibilities. It
had a third of the timber, half the
silver, and a substantial proportion
of thc copper, among other raw materials. If these were all permitted
to be shipped out, *-he opportunities
for development of tho country were
being largely missed. As to tne
present state of the country, and the
condition of industry and production,
Dr. Rutledge pointed out that when
every other country practically was
reducing its debt, Canada had not
only not made any reduction, but was
increasing it at the rate of a million
dollars a week.     Though the Liber-

declared the country was doomed if
they were not given office, thc national debt was $200,000,000 larger today than when tney took office, while
thc United States, Canada's competitor, had reduced it3 debt by five billions.
Canada had great agricultural possibilities, Dr. Rutledge said, but she
could not become a great nation on
agriculture alone. She must build
up ner industries if she were to realize her destiny.
Since the King government took
over the affairs of the country, 2,800
manufacturing firms had closet! theii*
doors, currying an average liability
of $58,070. While 400,000 Canadians had paid thc head tax to get into thc United States, 320,000 immi
grants bad como in, the government
maintaining nn immigration department costing $9,000,000 to get them.
That condition could not build up a
What did labor think of the situation?
Dr. Rutledge quoted Tom Moore,
Trades' leader, who said that labor's
only chance was to adhere to n definite protective policy. Canadian
railways last year hud pulled 10,000
tons of freight less thnn the previous, forcing hundreds of railway
employees out of work. Did it affect labor when the grout Hamilton
glass works closed, forcing thousands
out of employment! Was labor effected when in Hrunlford 5,000 men
employed iu the manufacture of harvesters wore laid oir, and tho city of
Brantford asked the provincial gov-

a government that refused to protect
the industry. The U.S. also examined intending Injmigrants rigidly, only admitting with freedom the native-
born Canadians, who were welcome
if they paid the head tax. At the
same time Canada was paying to get
immigrants, wnile her sons paid to
get away from Canada into thc United States.
As a result, parents who never before had voted anything but Liberal,
were making up their minds to vote
this time for their children. The
maritlmes, as a unit, had turned out
thc Liberals provincially, and were
clearly preparing to do the same federally. Ontario could be counted on
to declare solidly against thc government that was ruining industry. Quebec, it was now certain, would present tne Conservatives with many
seats. Dr. Rutledge asserted that
if the electors believed that the loss
of the youth of the country wns to
the best interests of Canada, or if
they believed that industrial depres-
j sion was a proper condition to as-
\ sist the country; or if they believed
j Lhat u mounting debt and a burden-
j some taxation are the conditions under which the country could flourish
—then they could vote for his opponent. Hut if they did not believe
these things were conducive to the
building up of the country', it was
j thoir duty to vote Conservative.
The candidate was followed by Mr.
Bowser, who said in part:

All the other nations of Europe
were manufacturing more cheaply
and had their proetective tariffs.
The United States had the Smith-
Underwood tariff, in which some articles entered the United States free.
They wiped this out nnd put in its
place the Fordney tariff. It can be
used and called in an emergency at
any moment. In Canada we cannot
raise nor change our tariff except
within the sessions of Parliament at
Ottawa. Australia did a similar
thing. Thc United States, as a result of increasing their tariff, en-
couroglng the manufacturers of the
U.S., produced such prosperity since
the war that they have finally paid
off five billion dollars of their indebtedness and thereby reduced taxation. Australia paid off two hundred

"In opening this annual conference
of the Farmers' Institute Central of
E. Kootenay, I must express my
pleasure nt the almost complete showing of a full delegation from the district. Only by such evidence of interest can we keep up the work and
strengthen in tho eyes of other organizations the standing of agriculture in our province.
"I think we all feel that in a general sense the past season has been
favorable to the rancher in this district. Fruit plantings were badly hit
last lleeemher and we have missed
very largely in E. Kootenay any crop
of either tree or bush fruit, but feed
la fairly plentiful, und potatoes and
roots have done well. The range,
when net overstocked, lias been good,

better weights are gradually bringing
higher figures and promise a return
to. reasonable prices before long.
Sheep, when not destroyed by coyotes, have been as profitable as any
line of farming, and men with a good
bunch look more cheerful than the
growers of uny other farm stock today.    Our people are beginning to

see that while dairying is not agreeable to a great many, as to be stickful it entails rigid regularity in
its work and unremitting attention
to details of cleanliness, still it offers
each month a regular pay cheque that
is in many cases the only dependable
income one ean confidently look forward to—a tiling we all seem to need
desperately. I am bound to confess
that in the northern end of the district there is evidence that the ranchers are giving better attention to
their dairy herds than in the south,
except thoso in the retail milk trade,
and their surroundings are showing
the evidence of it. In several of thi:
stables r saw the milk sheet ami the
scales in daily use as judge and jury
trying each cow in the barn. This
means that the owner has awakened
to the fact lhat to Jive und prosper
the idle and profitless cow must go
either to Ihe butcher or to some
neighbor not yet alive to this axiom
of progressive dairying. I must also
remark on the evidence of wideawake farming in the potato growers
of the Windermere, cars of inspected
potatoes being loaded at different
sidings—fine uniform tubers of
splendid quality and appearance, assuring a very considerable return per
acre and a nice influx of cash into
the district. Along with this is the
tonnuge of certified seed now being
stored for shipment at more than
double the commercial grade-price
later on,
"I feel very great credit is due Mr.
Fred Ryckman for the interest he
has shown in bringing the Indian Reserve farmers up to a point of ex
cellence in their work, and for the
splendid lot of potatoes they are shipping out this year, I have seen the
results and I venture the assertion
that outside of the Windermere Potato Crowers' organization very few
white farmers can show anything like
the results many reserve farms show I
this fall.
"East Kootenay thig year has reason lo ftel proud of its district agriculturist and the young farmers and
farmerette who made up his stock
and crop judging teams at the coast
fairs this season. When we consider
how few und far between are their
opportunities for practice, it says a
great deal to have them earry off the
highest honors both in team class and
in single events with such wide competition. It is evident Mr. Hay is a
wise man in starting to reform the
parents by beginning on the children.
The question is how.is he going to
find a starting place mi those who refuse to provide Uie children for his
"All institutes in B.C. have made
immense increases in membership in
the lust two years. I wish E. Kootenay had done likewise. It is discouraging to hear ->o often that because some one man was mado secretary or is on tho directorate a number would not renew or fail to attend. Let us quit this attitude, lot
us supporl our organization and its
majority action, at the same time
leaving no stone unturned to assure
as far as possible that such majority
action is on lines you feel to be for
thc best, even if not, be loyal until
you can change its course—my own
appeal is always to stay within and
do your fighting there for your idea
of right, never from the outside. I
venture to say not more than half of
our locals are fifty per cent of the
farmers who should be enrolled.
"Provincial agriculture is the poorer this year by the death of our Live
Stock Commissioner. Mr. W. T. MacDonald, last fall. A thorough live
stock man, and well known in East
Kootenay, his office has now been
added to the Chief Provincial Veter-
inary's work; but I am not convinced
that it is good business to combine
the two. It seems to me there is
ample work for two real good men
in these two places. The condition
of the live stock throughout B.C., und
its lack of breed quality, seem to suggest full occupation for one outstanding man preaching the gospel of bet
ter stock up and down B.C. for some
years yet. While we nil wish economy in public service, I resent seeing
it begin on a most needed branch of
Canada's basic industry while the
branches of public service are enlarging their ways of spending daily
"To speak of some of the matters
brought up lust year, I might first
mention thc nursery stock question.
While the concession granted us arrived too late to be widely useful, a
much larger amount of ornamentals,
particularly, were brought in by
Cranbrook people nnd seem to be doing well, and I think wc should endeavor to get the concession widened
to allow the permits to be granted

"Canada's supreme confidence In
ber future greatness has made a
deep Impression upon me. Only
men possessed of great vision and
almost overpowering energy would
have laid so soundly and on such
comprehensive lines the foundations
which we have everywhere seen
for the coming of a great civilization. The nobly planned parliament buildings thc ambitious university Institutions, the network of
railways-, harbor facilities, vast
water powers, electricity schemes,
irrigation works, and cftlrs planned
ont on princely lines, havo been
conceived for a great to-morrow.
Canada is shouldering financial and
other burdens in this task of Empire building which
call for sympathy and admiration. It Is the wblte
man's burden in the world. Ono stands amazed that
so feV people should have accomplished so much In
so short a time whicb encompassed Canada's history."

"At tho end of a long journey, In

and t« thus enable them to meet and combat from their
own knowledge the misunderstanding and misrepresentation of Canada and Canadian conditions that hnvo
been prevalent In the Old Country ef late months. Their
trip was an unqualified success from every point of
view. The Impressions follow!—
"Canada ls not a country but a
continent boundless In rich resources and richer still in the Indefatigable energy of a people
whose most conspicuous social
characteristics Is their devotion to
education and research, ln wise
foresight of the future. For its
development the greut requirement
is population, which can best be
supplied by co-operative action of

opportunities of the New land is to
transform them from conditions of penury Into Lharers
of exhuustless health, and In so doing to strengthen
the Empire. We are greatly Indebted to the Canadian
Pacific Railway for their Invitation to make the tour."
"Canada's need Is the Old Country's opportunity. Equally Britain's la the new country's opportunity. From the Atlantic to thc
Pacific seaboards I have beard the
cry, "Send us men; send us capital,', and have found conclusive
proof tbat once a-u-uin the new
world has tho power to redress thc
balance of tbo old; have we and
have you the will to make that
power effective? it seems to me
to be largely a matter of understanding and sympathy. Patriotism Is not enough, but translated
into terms of mutual help I know
Is capable of leading us- both
Into a new promised land. Let us
poll together.**
Daily News, London
"Every province of Canada claims
that it Is tbe land of opportunity.
I believe that each ls entitled to
make tbat claim and that the opportunity ls for more people who
are willing to work primarily on
the land and are determined to
succeed. The vast open spaces
must be populated. Aa a Scotchman wbo has met many old countrymen on this wonderful tour via
the Canadian Pacific Railway
across the Dominion I should like
to see a large Influx of Immigrants
belonging to the race Which played
auch a noble part ln the pioneer
work ln the land of promise for the
young and rigorous. Tbe Old Country caj still produce that type. What prevents them from coming ?
They lack the means, not tbe desire. I believe that
If our home government and tbe Dominion Government
could agree to assist them to a greater extent than has
hitherto been done, the main obstacle to th« flow of
Scottish Immigration Into Canada would be removed.
The people must be found. If not from the Old Land
then taken from elsewhere, but I think you would prefer tbe old stock."

"I beoame more and more Impressed with tbe bound low h possibilities of this great Dominion
every day of my tour. From Halifax to Vancouver that impression
grew from wonder to amazement.
Surely for a man wbo will work

All honor, then, to the brave men
who made this possible, to the
pioneers Vho blazed a nation's way

adventured over river and lake and
prairie, and to the Canadian statesmen whose vision was
not tbat ot ordinary men."
"Canada fills me with wonder and
admiration. That a comparatively
small population should have oc-
compllahed so much In so short n

I have seen I am convinced that the

"In spite of the efforts made, the

who should be most interested to take

New Amendments to Municipal Act Make Thii Requirement From Now On
Are you going to be on the city
voters' list this year? When the
smoke of the federal elections blows
away this week, the city elections
will begin to loom up, and the
chances are that some who fondly
think their names are on the list
will this year find they are not on,
Thc reason lor this will be found
in a recent amendment to the Municipal Act, which states that the only
persons who can go on the voters'
lists for property, -qualifications are
those with registered property. The
latter requirement is what will automatically take a lot of people at present on the list off, unless they go
to the trouble and expense of registering the agreements to purchase
which they hold. This is not often
done, but will have to be done now,
in order to keep their names on the
list for the property owners' quall-
lications. They will still be able to
got on as license holders or householders, but this will not entitle anyone to the full franchise, voting on
money by-laws being exclusive to the
property owners.
Notice of the changes being made
in thc property qualification! for the
city voters' list has recently been
sent out by thc city, clerk, with extracts from the new' amendments to
the Municipal Act, as follows:
"Thc Revised Statutes 1924, Chapter 75, Scotion 7, Subsection 1,
reads in part as follows:—
"After the first municipal election
any of the following penont shall,
subject to the restrictions in Sections 4 and 5 be entitled to have hla

name on the Voters' List, and if the
name is so entered, shall vote at
any election in a city municipality,
that is to say:—
"(a) Any male or female of the
full age of twenty-one years or any
corporation being the owner, as defined by Section 271 of the "Municipal Act" of land or land and improvements in the municipality of
the assessed value of not less than
one hundred  dollars."
"Tbe word "owner" when used in
hia part, in respect of any land within a municipality, means, except as
hereinafter provided, the person who
appears by the records of the Land
Registry Office to be the holder of
an -estate in fee-simple in such land,
and in the event of there being registered a lite estate in such land
shall include the tenant for life. In
the event that then shall be registered in tha Land Registry Olllce an
agreement to sell such land by the
terms of which the purchaser shall
agree to pay the taxes thereon, the
word "owner" shall mean the person last registered as the holder
of any such agreement. In the
case of lands held in the manner
mentioned in Sections 213 and 214
the word "owners" shall mean the
holder or occupier aa therein set
The holders of agreement of sale
are also notified -that they cannot
be placed on the voters' list unless
their agreement is registered, or if
they hold the deed, unless that deed
is registered. The voters' list is
made up for next year from the registered property owners of the date
of November 30th, 1925.
Elsewhere in this issue ia published the Statutory notice as to the
compilation of the IW of house-holders of license holders, which is made
up next month, and for which registrations must be made prior to the
31st of the month.

A comparison of the number of
names on the Federal Voters' List
at thc time of tne last Dominion
election with that at the present time,
so far as Kimberley and district arc
^concerned, will be of interest ns
showing the growth of that community since 1920. At the latter date 150
persons in Kimberley were entitled
to the franchise, while Sullivan Mine
was represented by 50 electors.
Chapman Camp is a new sub-division since the last list was compiled, and now claims 200 votes;
Kimberley Is entitled to 1000, and
the Top Mine has the privilege of
sending 125 to tho poll.
These make a total of 1325, or
over six and one half times the number entitled to vote in 1920.
