BOWSER MAKES
STRONG REPLY
" I could have received nomination  in  the  city of  Victoria,
with every probability  of being
elected by a largo majority, butI
I felt that my place was with my
own   people,   where  they
have!
known me twenty-live years and
if I have done anything wrong in
my public life and v. hich is'
deserving of criticism then 1 will
face it in my own city. I propose
to meet my traducers and my
enemies face to lace upon tlie
public platform and I shall be
able to prove that my record and
that of the government of which
I am a member is one we may i
well be proud of." ]
" There is not a single line in
this notorious manifesto of Mr.
Brewster's that breathes a single
question of policy.   It's simply
a piece of tearing down, a piece
of criticism, and  I want to tell
Mr. Brewster that he never offered any more gratuitous insult to i
the people of British  Columbia j
than when he appealed to them'
at the end  of this manifesto to
'smash the machine.' "
These are two of the fighting
sentences from an emphatically
fighting — but good humored
speech with which the attorney
general, the Hon. VV. J. Bowser,
opened the present provincial
election campaign at the first
convention of the Conservative
candidate in the riding of Richmond. The meeting was a very
lively one for the opening meeting of the campaign and the
attorney-general himself was
frequently heckied, but though
he gave and took hard 'blows,
always had the audience in a
pretty good humor.
Mr. Bowser dealt at length
witli Mi*. Brewster's manifesto,
because, despite its lack of constructive material, it was. as
coming from the leader of the
Liberals, al! the official statement
there was to criticise.

existed between the two companies, and if the citizens of
Cumberland were suffering inconvenience, the onus of blame,
in his opinion, rested with the
Wellington Colliery Company.
Apparently the latter company

alleged that a meeting of the

at which it was stated, in effect,
by the chairman of the meeting,
that the general superintendent
of the E. & N. Railway had
pointed out that the effect of the
decision of the Railway Commission would be to place the Royston
station in a most inconvenient
position for the residents of Royston, and that if they would be
saved this inconvenience they
should send the general superintendent a petition at once. Accordingly a petition was drawn
up and a man appointed to secure
signatures, (for wh'ch. by the
way, he was paid a remuneration
at a stipulated sum for each signature obtained.) In due course
the petition was sent in, and one
cannot help wondering what the
general superintendent is going
to do with it. We sincerely hope!
he will find it useful in his business, but we would like to inform
the general superintendent that
the people of Cumberland are no
"quitters" and are watching
every move in the game.
On account of the Cumberland
traffic we understand Royston is
the most profitable point on the
new extension of the E. & i\T. line,
and in view of this fact we cannot understand the cavalier treatment which the general superintendent appears bent on handing
to patrons in this vicinity.
Because there is a difference of
opinion between the E. & N. Railway Company and the Welling-
Colliery Railway Company is
surely no reason why the citizens
of Cumberland should be denied
the ordinary facilities of railroad
travel. The general superintendent can create a better feeling by
saying the word, and in view of
the decision of the Railway Commissioners, it is distinctly up to
him to say it.

false impression which it is  apt in this province,  at the request
to convey, calls for an explaint-
tion as to the work which has
been carried out during the Jpast
few years by the provincial government towards eradicating
bovine tuberculosis from our dairy
herds and thus mitigating the
spread of tuberculosis in this
province.
The leading scientists of the
world, men who have made a life
study of the subject, are all
agreed that milk from cows
affected with bovine tuberculosis
is one of the principal causes of
phthisis in children. The report
of the commission appointed last
year by the Government of Great
Britain to investigate the matter
clearly shows this to lie the case.
The following is taken from the
British Medical Journal of Jan-,
vary 17th, 1914:
"In recent years the results of \
the investigations on tuberculosis
of the stockmen and dairymen of
British Columbia. Testing was
undertaken free of charge, but
was not compulsory. An amendment to the Contagious Diseases
Act was therefore brought into
force during the session of the
provincial legislature in 1913.
whereby testing was made compulsory. Then commenced an
earnest and systematic fight
against bovine tuberculosis.
Mark what has been accomplished
since this work was first taken in
hand.
When the'work was first begun
the percentage of reactors to the
tuberculin test in the principal
dairy districts of the province
was as follows: —
Gulf Islands, 7 per cent.
. Vancouver Island. 10 per cent.
Lower Mainland, 15 per cent.

sumption without any inspection.
Since this work has  been  taken
in hand, however, a rigid inspection takes place, and only  those
cows which are perfectly  tit  for
human   food   are allowed to be
sold.    Others are condemned ''or i
tanking purposes.     If there are i
no tubercular lesions on the meat
of the animal, it is perfectly fit;
for human food, and is sold as
such  in  every   country   of   the
world.
I wish,  emphatically  to stale!
that no animal  which has  been
condemned for  bovine  tuberculosis has been allow to be sold fori
human  consumption   without   a
most   careful    examination    by
either Dominion or Provincial inspectors, and in the case of those!
condemned for tanking purposes, j
our departmental qualified veterinarians see that they are so dis-;
posed of.
Statements were made during
the present session of the Prov-
Legislature that the Swift Canadian Company have been making

Government by buying reactors
..■■der market value.
ihe   total   number  of   cattle
handled   by  this company   was,
eighty-five, forty-three of which i
were condemned for tanking purposes, and forty-two passed for
beef. The pi ice received for
these cows was nearly double
what was stated.
Milking cows naturally have
very little value as beef, owing
to their condition, and would not
be worth half as much as a fat
dry cow.
The tuberculin used in testing
by officials of this department is
secured from the very best
sources, ancl is guaranteed pure.
