TWENTY-NINTH TEAR—No. 13.
CUMBERLAND,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1920.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE:  TWO DOLLARS I>EK ANNUM.
MUNICIPALITIES NEED NOT
EXPECT ANY CONSIDERATION
Provincial Government Proposing to Retain Every Possible Source
of Revenue to Meet the Ever Incleasing Outlays on the Grow
ing Machinery of Government Built up to Benefit a Host of
Office-Holders and Hangers-on.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 26.—The speeding up by the government of
its legislative programme at this stage in the session has doubtless
been he result of some strong criticism directed at it by its own
supporters. Gossip has it that at more than one recent caucus
session some of the up-country members have not been backward
in rapping their party heads for their failure to be better prepared
for the session. The legislature bill of fare is a comparatively
slim one this year and yet it is further behind than for years pAst.
Any hope that the session will terminate at the end of the month
has disappeared despite the fact that members were confidently
counting upon the end of the two monhs period seeing them on
their way back to their homes.
The budget promised ten days ago is yet to make its appearance. The latest prophecy is that it will come down next Wednesday. Night sessions will then be inaugurated. The opposition has
been securing a mass of information upon the administration's
operations and is well primed to give the financial proposals of the
government a critical investigation. Chief interest in the budget
centres in what the governmen will propose in the way of granting
further sources of revenue to he municipalities for which the latter
have been urgently pressing. Predictions at present are that the
hand-out, if any, will be a slim one, the government proposing to
retain every possible source of revenue for itself to meet the
ever increasing outlays on the growing machinery it is building up
to the benefit of a host of office holders, but at the expense of the
already heavily tax-burdened people. Hardly an act comes down
now that provision is not made therein for more officials and more
expenditures on account of administrative service, a service already attained to proportions never before reached in the history
• of the province.
Which Day Is
the Lord's Day
Comox Lady Correspondent Sets
Out Views of Seventh Day
Sabbath Believers.
Editor Islander,—I see by the Argus
that the Rev. Mr. Heustls preached in
Cumberland and Courtenay for the
better observance of the Lord's Day.
Now, as this law ls applicable to
each Individual, therefore each person
should seek to know which day of the
week ls the Lord's Day. So we take-
up our bibles and find who our Lord is
and what day he claims to be the
Lord's Day.
St. John tells us "In the beginning
was the Word and the Word was with
God and the Word was Ood." Then we
turn to Colosslans and see in the first
chapter that all things were made by
the Son of God and that He was the
Image of the Invisible God; and the
first chapter of Hebrews tells us the
same. So we turn back to Genesis to
see what He made. In the 1:26 verse
lt says: "Let us make man In Our
image." Then we also see how the days
are numbered. The evening and the
morning were the first day from sunset to sunset was a day). See Leviticus
23:32. Ood made and numbered the
weekly cycle and no man can add one
day to that cycle. Then we read in
Genesis, second chapter, how tlie
"Word"—the "Son of God"—is also
called the Lord God. He blessed the
seventh day and sanctified it. He set
it apart as a memorial of His creation.
We Bee in this chapter that the Lord
God was the flrst person who rested
on the seventh day and made it holy.
Now we turn to Exodus, sixteenth
chapter, and see how very particular
tbe same Lord was about observing
the seventh day. He gave two portions
of manna on the sixth day and none
on the seventh. He performed miracles
for them to Impress on them tlie importance of the seventh day Sabbath.
Then again ln Isaiah, 58:13, He calls
It "My holy day," also in Ezekiel, 20:
12-20, He calls this day a sign between
Him and His people. Let us consider
what is used as a sign between King
George and his people. It Is tlie flag or
sign (ensign); it is a great offence to
substitute it or trample on It. See
Isaiah, 68:13.
Before' leaving Ezekiel let us read
what He says In the chapter 22:26 and
see how grieved the Lord is about the
way His "Holy Day" Is treated by His
people. It waB the same Lord God who
gave the Ten Commandments to Moses,
written on tables of stone, and In His
sermon on the mount, In Matthew,
5:19, said: "Whosoever shall break
one of the least commandments, and
shall teach men so, he. shall be called
the last In the Kingdom of Heaven;
but whosoever shall do and teach
them, the same shall be called great ln
the Kingdom of Heaven." The fourth
commandment in Exodus, 20:10, says:
"The seventh day is the Sabbath of
the Lord thy God; in it thou shalt not
do any work." Hence the seventh day
is the Lord's Day.
You ask, did Christ ever change the
day? No. He says in .Matthew, 5:18,
"Till heaven and earth pass, one jot
or one tittle shall ln no wise pass from
the law till all be fulfilled." The Lurd
Jesus Christ always kept the seventh
day Sabbath and (see Luke, 23:56)
the women who came from Galilee
with Him beheld the sepulchre and
how His body was laid, then returned
and prepared spices and ointments,
and rested the Sabbath Day, according
to the commandment. See the reference it gives: Exodus, 20:10. No
change made.
St. Mark says the Son of Man
(meaning Christ) is Lord also of the
Sabbath (not Sunday). St. John the
Divine, who leaned on Christ's bosom,
knew what day Christ claimed, so he
said sixty-three years after Christ was
crucified, that he, John, was In the
spirit on the Lord's Day. Revelations,
1:10.
We see It was kept by tbe Lord
Jesus Christ, so it ls both tlie true
Lord's Day and also the true Christlun
Sabbalh. Let us claim the blessing
offered to us in the flrst chapter ln
Revelations, and go on to tiie last
chapter ln Revelations, 22:14. It snys:
Blessed are they that do His commandments, that tliey may havo right
to tlie tree of life and mny enter In
through the gates Into the city."
Now, If you want to know who made
the change, read II. Thessalonlans,
2:34, and see reference, Daniel, 7:25
and Revelations, 14:6-12, also Chambers' Encyclopaedia, volume S, page
!), you will read about thc flrst Sunday
law; then turn to history of the Sob-
bath and see how seventh day Sabbath
keepers were persecuted -in tlle seventeenth century (History of Sabbath)
on pag 496. It cost something to obey
tlie fourth commandment In such times
as those.

An Explanation.
Readers of The Islander will observe that this week's issue
is smaller than usual by two pages, lt Is hardly necessary to
say that we regret this, because our aim haa been to turn out
eight pages each week. Unfortunately, however, the editor was
taken ill on Wednesday night and Thursday morning found him
in the hands of the General Hospital authorities. This precludes
him devoting the time and attention necessary to turning out
the regular-sized edition, and we hope our readers will thoroughly appreciate the circumstances and overlook whatever discrepancies which may appear in this Issue.
Province Has
Motors Galore
Hon. John Hart's Private Interests Benefit by Public
Business.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 26.—The success of
thet firm of Gillespie, Hart & Todd, of
Victoria, of which Mr. Hart, minister
of finance, ls a member, in securing
government business has been further
exemplified during the week through
the agency of opposition questions. It
will be remembered that information
was recently secured showing that the
firm captured a nice commission
through being awarded the insurance
on P.G.E.' rolling stock and equipment
to the amount of some $2,400,000,
which business it placed wltb the
Home Insurance Company ot New
York, for which lt is the provincial
agents, and this in the face ot the fact
tbat other concerns licensed to transact business in the province put In
lower bids for the business. It was
In connection with thia business tbat
the premier, as minister of railways,
returned the answer that he "bad no
official information" that Hon. Mr.
Hart is a member of the Victoria Arm
or a director of the P.G.E. railway,
though so far as the latter point ls
concerned the premier and Hon. Mr.
Hart, with their fellow director, Hon.
Mr. Farris, were constituted directors
of the road by act of the legislature
and have been acting in that capacity
for nearly three years. However, the
official records of the registrar of Joint
stock companies has provided a definite answer to the opposition. They
show that Hon. Mr. Hart ls a member
of the firm of Gillespie, Hart & Todd
and also that he ls a director of the
P.G.E. It now appears that the Victoria firm is also agent for the Canadian Surety Company which has secured business by furnishing bonds for
payment of succession duties, and that
bonds of the French Complex Ore
Company, of Nelson, B.C., bonds guaranteed by the province, were negotiated by the firm which secured a fee
therefor. Then, too, Gillespie, Hatt
& Todd got a slice of thc Insurance
placed by the government on Its stock
of liquor to the amount of $18,000.
ALL WHISKEY DOES NOT
COME FROM COURTENAY
Provincial Police Make Investigations
und Fall to Find Any Traces
of Liquor.
Claim has beon made by certain
peoplo In Cumberland that the whiskey
which has heen flowing so freely ln
the town of late has been brought In
by people motoring to dances from
Courtenay. So perslsteutly have these
statements been mode that the police
during thc pnst week have been making thorough investigations, stationing
themselves along the Royston and
Courtenay roads, examining evfery
motor car as lt passed. Not in one
instance did they find liquor ln the
possession of any of the occupants of
these cars. The police expressed themselves as of the opinion that the supply
of* whiskey was coming from some
otlier source.
The Fish Are Sufe.
Fishing season opened on Thursday,
March 25; that is, Ashing in the upper
waters. It is understood that the opening of the season will make very littlo
difference to tlie size of the catches of
tlie followers of Isaac Walton, for
they were never known to carry home
any fish at any time. In this respect,
the editor knows what he Is talking
about.
Transforming Residence.
Carpenters are this week engaged In
shingling the residence of G. W. Clinton of this city, who is having his
house transferred Jnto a bungalow.
When completed this will be one of
the prettiest houses ln the city.
Heavy  Fine  Imposed.
The provincial police made a raid
on Chinatown during the week, with
the result that one of the parties who
is credited with being the agent for
a llrm dealing ln opium was fined $500
and costs.
B. C. Cattle Are
Free of Disease
Benefits of Far-sighted Policy
inaugurated Years Ago Made
Manifest.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 26.—Testimony to
the efficiency of the policy inaugurated
by the former Conservative government to safeguard the Interests of the
dairymen and the public by the prevention of tuberculosis in tlie cattle
herds of the province waB given in
the House this week by Hon. E. D.
Barrow, minister of agriculture, when
he stated that the number of reactions
to the tuberculin test is rapidly approaching the Irreducible minimum.
To F. J. A. Mackenzie, Conservative
member for Delta, the minister stated
that the herds of the province are
singularly free from the disease, Indicating that the system ot inspection
had proved a most valuable one. Incidentally he admitted that the present
government is following out a practice
tor which the Liberals were wont to
roundly blame the former administration, namely, the permitting of the sale
of carcases of animals ordered slaughtered by the government Inspectors
becauae of their being Infected with
tuberculosis. There was a time when
the Liberal critics, who sought any and
all excuses for criticising the late administration, literally made the welkin
ring with their denunciations of the
failure of the then department to adequately safe-guard the public health
through the prohibition of the sale of
sue Infected meat. But the practice
ls still being permitted by the present
department, the minister admitted.
The question of the advisability or
otherwise of the tuberculin test was
one on whlcb, formerly, considerable
difference of opinion existed. The present premier, when some years ago
he was devoting his attention to his
farming operations In the Delta riding,
a district in which his farming work
proved more profitable than did his
political efforts, was one of Its most
bitter opponents. On one occasion his
refusal to allow his cattle to be Inspected resulted ln their being quarantined by the then Conservative minister of agriculture. Today that same
system of Inspection is being carried
out with remarkable success and British Columbia cattle, thc minister
stated, are in the envious position of
being almost froee from tuberculosis
the while the herds of the prairie
provinces are seriously affected because of the lack of a similar strict'
system of inspection.

CUMBERLAND VETERANS ARE
OPPOSED TO ORIENTAL VOTE
In Answer to Question by Mr. Hugh Stewart, M.L.A., Local Great
War Veterans Declare Themselves to Be Absolutely Opposed
to Extending the Franchise to Those Japanese Who Served
Overseas With the Canadian Forces—Some of Their Reasons.
At the regular meeting of the Cumberland branch of the Great
War Veterans, field on Tuesday evening of this week, the secretary
reported that Mr- H. Stewart, member of the legislature for this
district, had wired him, asking that the Great War Veterans of
Cumberland give their opinion on the question of thc government
giving a vote to the Japanese who had fought overseas in thp
'anadian Army, as the bill was now before the House, and he
wished to know the opinion of Cumberland on the matter. Very
little discussion took place in the meeting, as every person was
unanimous in condemning the proposal, more especially when
Orientals who belonged to thc British race were denied the franchise. Several persons objected to the proposal on the grounds
that they did not think it was desirable that Orientals should be
allowed to vote at the same booths as the female voters of the
white race; as this would be the caso if they were given the vote
Again, they did not see why the Japanese should be given any
more privileges in this country than they had in their own country,
where the greater part of them are not allowed to vote at all
Another speaker pointed out that a foreigner going into J;.pan
was not allowed to vote or hold property, and therefore there
should be no difference made to a Japanese coming into Canada.
The answer of the Veterans was wired on Tuesday nigh.
Spring Heralded  By   Women's  Hats
Tlio Spring Season is here—Irrespective of whether tlie thermometer
and the weather man indicate it as
such. One can always tell when
spring arrives by tlie millinery now on
display in the shop windows and ou
the streets. This fact was strikingly
forced upon us when wo dropped in
and took a look around Rldeout'B millinery parlors. For a moment, one
almost Imagines tliey are in some large
city store—so great In tbo variety of
attractive hats on view. A woman
could spend many hours admiring the
many wonderful new creations.
One especially attractive model Coming under the writer's eye was of a
blue Milan Breton, slightly flatteneil
at the side to show the yarn embroidered facing of wide ribbon. This is a
vory chic model, and will uo doubt
enhance the attractiveness of some
beautiful face.
Another was a Breton with semi-
transparent crown of black marine,
and brim of black hair lace, trimmed
with flowers In French shades. This
model displays this year's most striking colors.
Another deserving special  mention
was a bluck llsere turban with dented
top and spool shaped brim; the top
covered with silk clematis blossoms
in peacock and turquoise tones with
dark green foliage and faced in pale
pink. Turbines are very much in
vogue this season.
The large shapes are also holding
their own. a very beautiful one being
a large turned up shape made of grey
genrgetto crepe and glossy novelty
straw in Alice blue and trimmed with
sprays of raisins.
Tlie black dress hat which is alweys
a necessity for special occasions la
as attractive as ever. One striking
one was of black tulle witli collapsible
crown of many layers of material and
muhair braid overlaid with loose cir
cular section of tulle. A sparse wreath
of Held flowers affords tlie trimming.
There were many more beautiful
models, but time and space will not
permit of their description, As a final
word, wc would say that the model?
on display in Hideout's millinery parlors are the latest from tho greatest
style centres, and well Indicate tho
trend of this spring's fashions.

That she had a perfectly glorious
time, was the statement of Lila Lee
the youthful Paramount star, wher
asked how she had enjoyed her tri|
up to the snow and ice regions of th*
northern part of California, where thi
exterior scenes of "A Daughter of th(
Wolf," her now Paramount picture,
were iilmed. The picture will lie sliowi
at the llo-llo Theatre on Thursday ant
Friday of next week.
She placed an enthusiastic emphasli
on tlie word. "Glorious," and from tin
beautiful rosy color on her cheeks I1
enn he safely said that that sort o:
3 life certainly agrees with tlie lllflr
star, "When we started on the trip,'
she said. "I was doubtful as to the sori
ol' time we would have, i always
am nearly tickled out of my shoe;
when they tell me we ore going or
location, for I always have a world
of fun. But Mr. Wallace Reid bad jusi
returned from his location trip up tc
the place where the big Red wood:
grow, and he told nie that they bad a
most terrible time. He said it rained
nearly every day and niglit and that
tliey had a real train wreck, and all
came near being killed. So when wc
boarded tlie train. I was prepared to
view my trip as a mission of duty
and a sacrifice for art's sake, and 1
really wondered whether or not we
would all get back. But I was delightfully surprised when I got up there
and found that wonderful snow—Oh!
ever so deep; and it didn't rain any
to speak of. Of course, we didn't have
luxurious steam-heated apartments'
and everything like that. We had to
"rough it," but I lust revelled in that.
It seems thut wc human beings get to
slaves to comfort and easy living.' And
I really enjoy just getting out once in
a while to a place where tliey haven't
ail those things, and living in a primitive way, just to satisfy myself that
I can. I hate to think that I am a
slave to any tiling. I want to be free.
I want to know that I can stand anything that anybody else can, and I get
a ios of satisfaction out of knowing
that I can go up there and live jusl
like tlie rest of those people who stay
up there all tlie time and really thrive
on their fare and their limited comforts and conveniences, The snow
was just wonderful, and it was tbe first
chance since coming to California thai
I have had to get out and romp in it
and throw snowballs. You could look
and see just miles and miles of if
stretched away hefore you and it just
made me feel like the whole world was
mine and I could run out and do just
whal 1 wanted to.

There Is every conceivable form of
.'un in the latest Charlie Chaplin production, "A Day's Pleasure," which
vill be shown at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre
m Thursday and Friday of next week.
Ml dull moments have been carefully
eschewed and it evidently was Chap-
tin's desire to make "A Day's Pleasure" a comedy that would keep an
audience in constant laughter. The
first part of the production takes place
in a family auto of which Chaplin
is the proprietor. He is seen for tlie
first time as the happily-wedded father
of a household consisting of a wife
and two miniature Chaplins. The
picture starts witli what Is believed
to be tlie funniest scene ever filmed
in the history of the motion picture
industry. The incident takes place on
a busy street corner when the family
automobile, through unknown reasons,
refuses to abide by tbe wishes of the
diligent driver and au exasperated
traffic officer.
The picture is concluded on an excursion boat whereon a negro jazz
band adds Its soul-tormenting tones
to the unsettled stomachs of the participants of a rough voyage.
During the recent severe snowstorm
in New York one of that coruoration's \
foremen. Patrick J. O'Ryan, an ardent
admirer of John McCoriuack, and a
bit of a musician himself, put into
play a little stunt that he had read
about. He demanded of every man
on ills staff that he sang a ditty as
lie shovelled away the enow. "It
makes for speed and efficiency," he
said.

OBNOXIOUS FRANCHISE CLAUSE
IS LIKELY TO BE WITHDRAWN
Government Side-Stepping on Question of Giving Votes to Japanese by Saying Clause Was Inserted Because Great War Veterans Wanted It—Minister of Mines Compelled to Back Down
on Proposed Amendments to the Mineral Act.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 26.—The past week has seen the legislature get
down to some real business and progress has been made with legis-
' lation bo far brought down. Chief attention has been paid to the
new Elections Act, in connection with which it early became
apparent that the opposition criticism has produced a marked
effect. The strong declaration by Mr. Bowser against the proposal
to grant the franchise to the Japanese veterans who served overseas had brought forth the excuse from the government that it
was not to be taken as a declaration of policy but merely a con'
cession to the request from the G.W.V.A. in Vancouver to extend
to the Japanese the vote. Just horn such a provision incorporated iu a government measure which had been canvassed in caucus before it reached the
House could be construed into anything else but a considered policy of the
government was not explained. Tbe opposition, which iu almost every section
of the province and by every class of the community, has been voiced against
the proposal, has made it abundantly clear that Mr. Bowser, in his attitude,
has expressed the unanimous opinion of the people of the province. While
the definite announcement has not, as yet, been forthcoming, It ls practically
certain that the obnoxious clause will be eliminated. There Is, too, the other
point to which Mr. Bowser directed his protest, the section which nullifies
machinery
the whole elaborate machinery for
safe-guarding the counting of the absentee vote and rendered the act wide
open for election irregularities similar ln nature to those which startled
tbe country ln the spring of 1916 when
tbe plugging scandal at Vancouver
was unearthed-. 'It is the provision
whereunder, if the original applications for registrations are not available before the returning officer at the
count of the absentee ballots, the provisions of the act requiring comparison between the affidavit of the voter
as signed on the back of the envelope
containing the absentee ballot, with
that of the voter on his original application for registration, need not be
made. This calm wiping out of tbe
whole system of safe-guarding the absentee vote aroused a storm of protest
from the opposition members who declared it was the real "joker" ot the
bill. The premier admitted that he did
not liko It himself and he promised
that before the bill got through Its
committee stage there would be an
amendment to strengthen the section.
The opposition scored a point, too,
when their assault upon the growing
practice of ministers of the government taking to themselves powers
rightfully pertaining to the Leglsla-
ant-Goveruor-in-Council, forced tiie
minister of mines to make an important change in the bill to amend the
Mineral Act, whereunder provision
was made for placing reserves upon
Iron ore lands upon the advice of the
minister, to whom authority was given
to lift such reserves when he saw fit.
Phis was the measure which, Mr. Bowser had claimed, would so prejudicially
iffect the prospectors of the province
and which was extending the harmful
policy already Inaugurated by the minister of lands whereby the latter secured control of the administration of
the coal and petroleum lands of the
province. The bill, as drafted, would
have permitted the minister of mines
to lift a reserve without any public
notice, and dispose of them ln any
manner he might see fit. Mr. Bowser
urged that when a reserve was lifted
due notice should be given and he was
heartily supported by 0. S. Hanes of
North Vancouver. As a result of the
criticism directed against the measure
an amendment was brought ln by the
minister providing for the public notification, thus eliminating any possibility of secret negotiations between
the minister or the government and
any Individual or syndicate who
might desire to secure control of such
ture or, at any rate, to the Lleuten- ore lands.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S "BOMB"
DROPS INTO THE FORGOTTEN
Aftermath of Hon. Mr. Farris' Attempt to Stampede Legislature
on Actions of Opposition Leader in Sending Cables Regarding
Results of Recent Elections—Premier Compelled to Come to
the Assistance of His Crest-fallen Colleague, and Makes Damaging Statement Regarding M. A. Macdonald and the C.N.R.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 26.—Into the limbo of things forgotten has
passed the incident which last week enlivened the House proceedings for a passing moment when Attorney-General Farris "sprung"
that cable message upon the Legislature in an abortive effort to
relieve his pent-up feelings at-the expense of the opposition leader,
W. J. Bowser, K.C. Designed as a crushing retort to the telling
criticism of the failure of the administration of the game department under the charge of his dentist henchman, Dr. Baker, and in
retaliation for Mr. Bowser's able attack upon the manifold weaknesses of the new Elections Act, the cablegram into which the attorney-general read the insinuation that the former had, when he cabled on
September 16, 1916, to Sir Richard McBride "I want 180 votes to elect me"
heen demanding that the then agent-general should wrongly produce votes to
make up Mr. Bowser's deficiency In the civilian vote at home, has proved a
veritable boomerang. The insinuation hy the attorney-general was promptly
replied to by Mr. Bowser, whose explanation, on its face, so palpably sincere
and reasonable that the Premier was moved to rush to the defence of his
minister in a lengthy harrangue which, while it breathed resentment, bristled
with insinuations and inuenda and covert charges against the opposition
leader, left a bad taste in the mouths of members. The Premier's effort convinced no one, not even the more rabid
of his party followers, and comment,
in the legislative corridors made it
clear that ln the opinion of members
the attorney-general's move in Introducing the cable and seeking to make
political capital thereof was Ill-advised
and reflected no credit upon himself
■r the government, and certainly cast
* o discredit upon the opposition lcad-
■r. Summed up, It proved to be just
nother of those peevish outbursts for
which the attorney-general Is becom-
lnb noted, an ebullition ot childish
petulence he displays when opposition
thrusts get home.
Mr. Bowser's statement to the House
to the attorney-general's attack was
temperate in tone, convincing in its
logic and withal simply made. Unlike
the minister, Mr. Bowser's manner was
frank and open. But there was a sting
to his statement when he challenged
Hon. Mr. Farrla to fight out the Issue
at the coming elections In Vancouver,
the city he has represented for seventeen years, in which period he asserted he had never taken part in a crooked election and. where no different
opinion had ever been held of him
until the then attorney-general ln 1916
had Insinuated that his money was behind thc Seattle pluggers. It was quite
true, Mr. Bowser said, that it was possible to read Into a perfectly Innocent
message an evil suggestion if such
suited the political purposes of members of the government, but, he concluded: "1 dislike to wipe out the
frenzied joy which the honorable members showed at the end of the attorney-general's speech, and which
looked as If the whole matter had been
rehearsed previously iu their caucus,
but If they knew the attorney-general
as well as I do I think the next time
they had better stage something more
conclusive, and have some otlier member of the cabinet chosen to do the
work who will, at least, read the cable
In Its entirety."
Mr. Bowser's motion that his statement be made part of the records of
the House moved the Premier to offer
an amendment designed to give him
opportunity to come to the rescue of
his discomfited minister, an amendment calling for the tabling of all
cables passing between the late government and the then agent-general ln
connection with the overseas count.
Minister's Firm
Gets Rake-offs
Here was another opportunity for
Liberal members to sit back in anticipation* of further developments. On
Tuesday Premier Oliver spoke to his
amendment. Summarised, his remarks
were a rehash of all the hard things
the Liberals havo been wont to say
about the opposition leader couched in
tlie characteristic bull-dozing manner
of the government's leader who, however, was careful to say he waB making
no charges. He pointed to the fact that
some cables which, he said, had been
exchanged at that time because, thc
cable company's accounts showed
them to have been paid for, were not
available, a sinister circumstance, he
opined. He admitted the opposition
leader's explanation might be ail
right, ho was not prepared to say It
wasn't, but It looked queer to him. In
tact the Premier spent an hour telling
the House that he had bis doubts. He
did exactly what Mr. Bowser suggested would be done by anyone, especially
a hide-bound Liberal, who desired to
do so, that is read into the cable any
meaning it might suit his political
purpose to do so. But the Premier's
statement was not without its interesting features. For Instance, In regard
to Mr. BowBer's reference to the plugging scandal and to the fact that the
former attorney-general (M. A. Macdonald) had had to leave the government, the Premier naively retorted
that that gentleman had been at fault
ouly In that he had accepted campaign funds from the C.N.R. personally "rather thnn through an intermediary." In view of the fact that Mr.
Macdonald has persistently been endeavoring to convince a skeptical public that that now famous donation was
not from the C.N.R. at all but from
Dr. Mackenzie, a personal friend, the
Premier's version was a frank admission to say tho least. The Premier also
felt called upon to apologize for the
demeanor of his attorney-general who,
he said, was prone to speak in heat.
The Premier's amendment wns accepted by the House, the opposition
supporting it. With its passing there
closed an incident which, while It entertained the galleries for two days,
delayed the more serious business of
the legislature, while failing to create
that sensation which its author, the
attorney-general, intended It should.

VICTORIA,   B. C.
Something Over One Hundred
Purchased, Many of Them
for Joy-riding.
Victoria, March 26.—No less then
$155,000 has been spent by the present Liberal administration on motor
equipment in the past three years,
according to information supplied by
various ministers to tlie opposition In
the legislature. The machines purchased range from the unambitious
flivver to the more business-like truck.
Judging from the number of machines bought and the prices paid therefor the day of a gas-propelled government service has arrived, to say nothing of the gas-propelled administration. The department of public works
heads the list with an expenditure of
$84,500 for thirty-eight autos, ten
trucks and fourteen tractors. The
department of lands comes next,
though a long way behind, with an outlay of $24,000 for thirty-five autos.
The attorney-general's department
sports $19,500 worth of machines,
among them the fine motor used by
Dr. Baker, chairman of the Game Conservation Board. The department of
agriculture possessed $21,500 worth,
and even the provincial secretary
chuggs about at an expense of $2,820
to the public treasury. The minister
of mines has contented himself with
an outlay of $2,150. In all there have
been purchased 154 machines of various makes and prices.

What Is Your Candid Opinion
of the Reply of a Phone Call?
Supposing you were telephoning a store and you got
for the answer, "Hello!" would you proceed to give your
order or would you enquire, "Is that So-and-So?" At
the same time you would think how much better it
would have been had the person replied with the name
of the store.
Had he done so, you would doubtless have said to
yourself, "Now, that man is up to date; he knows how
to answer the telephone properly."
Yet how many people blurt out "Hello!" never realizing that it sounds brusque and that it also interferes
with efficient telephone service.

ANNOUNCEMENT
WE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY of thanking
our numerous customers for their support
and practical appreciation to us during the
many years we have been in your midst, and while
carrying on the Drygoods and Gens' Furnishings Departments.
Having decided to discontinue this part of our
business, we take much pleasure in recommending our
successor, Mr. Sutherland, for a continuance of the
support extended to us.
We feel more than assured that the service you have
had in the past will be improved considerably by the
personal attention of Mr. Sutherland on the floor.
Our business is Groceries, and in future our policy
will be for a further extension and improvement in our
service.
The Grocery Department will be under the capable
management of Mr. Matt Brown, who has made such
a splendid success of the Department during the past
year.
We expect the Drygoods Department will be closed
all day on Monday for stocktaking purposes, as Mr.
Sutherland takes possession immediately stock is taken.
