The water supply of Cumberland will soon be greatly augmented- This is the statement made by Mr. Geo. Clinton, manager
of the Cumberland & Union Waterworks Company, this week.
The company has now on hand the project of erecting a new dam
which when completed will increase the water supply by more
than three-fold. The new structure will be built adjacent to the
present dam, but a trifle farther down stream. The present dam,
known as No. 1, lies on Hamilton Creek about half a mile southwest of Chinatown. This dam lies at an elevation of 925 feet above
sea level and is 435 feet higher than Chinatown, impounding
4.00,000 gallons of water, from which,the city received its present

Wanted War of Revenge
—
Berne, Switzerland, March 19.—Chancellor Bauer
caused a sensation at yesterday's Bitting of the German
National Asembly at Stuttgart, when he revealed the
conditions presented to the government by von Kapp
and General von Luettwitz before they entered Berlin
last Saturday. "They wished to prepare for a war of
revenge and plunge the country into another cataclysm," cried the chancellor. "Pitiless punishment
must come to those offenders."

WATERWORKS ASSESSMENT
DEFERRED FOR OPINION
GROCERY ESTABLISHMENT
DOING GOOD BUSINESS
Mr. William Gordon Has Opened Oat
at Top of Main Street and Has an
Attractive Stock.
Cumberland has a new grocery
store, and one that gives promise of
working up a good trade. ■ It is situated at the corner of First street and
Dunsmuir Avenue and ls being conducted by Mr. William Gordon, well
known In the grocery business in this
city. The business will be conducted
on the non-delivery system, that is,
customers will carry their purchases
home with them, thus eliminating considerable expense, Mr. Gordon already
reports a good business, which is
Improving every .day. The store is a
new departure ln this city, but the
principles on which It is being conducted are Bound.
Request of Company manager for a
Reduction to Be Handed to Mr,
Harrison for Decision.
The request of the manager of the
Cumberland & Union Waterworks
Company for a reduction of their assessment came up for consideration at
the meeting of the City Council on
Monday evening. There appeared to
be a diversity ot opinion as to whether
the Council had the power to make
any alteration ln the assessment ln
view of the fact that the court of re
vision bad adjudicated upon the assessment and the roll bad been signed
by all tbe members.
Some aldermen were of the opinion
that the law allowed the council to
place a by-law before the ratepayers
on the question, while others claimed
the only redress the company had
was by an appeal to a Supreme Court
Judge. It being apparent that no
agreement could bn reached with the
aldermen holding the opinions which
they did, it was decided to refer the
question to Mr. P. P. Harrison for a
legal opinion. When this is obtained
the matter will be definitely settled.
BEVAN LADY RECIPIENT
OF SAD INTELLIGENCE
GENEROUS OFFER MADE
BY MR. FRANK DALLOS
Undertake! to Plow Main Street Near
Top of Hill If City Will Remove the Dirt.
Last Monday night Mr. Frank Dallos
Intimated to the City Council that he
was willing to plow Dunsmuir avenue
near the top of the hill free of charge
if the City Council would undertake
to remove tho surplus dirt within a
given time. The matter was left ln tbe
hands of His Worship Mayor Macdonald and the Board of Works, whose
action ln the matter will be governed
by the possibility of procuring the services of the steam shovel.
Mrs. James L. Brown Receives Word
of the Death of Her Father In
Scotland.
During the week Mrs. James L.
Brown of Bevan received a message
from Scotland Informing her of the
death of her father, Mr. Terrls Heggle,
the sad event occurring at Blackburn
by Batbgate. Linlithgowshire, in
which place the deceased had spent
practically all his life. Nanaimo and
Vancouver papers aro aBked. to copy
this, as the deceased had a wide circle
of friends In both those cities.
Continues Membership.
When the question of continuing
membership ln the British Columbia
Union of Municipalities came up at
the meeting of the City Council, one
or two aldermen were in favor of
dropping out. His Worship, however,
spoke strongly in favor of continuing
membership In that body, and it was
so ordered.
PERSONAL MENTION.
Miss Ruth Clinton left on Monday
morning for Victoria.
Mr. William Richards arrived on
Thursday's train from Ijadysmith.
Mrs. David Walker loft on Wednesday morning's train for Nanaimo.
Mr. Louis Mark, Canadian Explosives, left on Friday morning for Vancouver.
Mrs. Roy L. Rideout returned on
Tuesday from Vancouver, where she
has been spending the past few rtayp.
Will the Water
Rates Advance?!
Hinted   That   Company   May
Adopt This Means of Meeting
Increase in Its Taxes.
If the remarks made by'Ald. Thomson at the meeting of the City Council
on Monday evening were inspired
there is a likelihood that an attempt
will be made to Increase the water
rates in the city because of the Increase in the taxes which the Waterworks Company is called upon to pay
according to the assessment roll as it
now stands.
The request of tbe manager of tbe
company for a reduction in the assessment was under consideration when
Aid. Thomson threw out the suggestion that if the council did not meet
the wishes of the company in the matter ot taxation it would be an easy
matter for the company to get around
the difficulty by raising the water
rates ln the city. Tbere was no
agreement as to what the water rates
should be, and as the city did not own
the waterworks they would have to
pay whatever the company wanted to
charge without being able to help
themselves. This opinion was also endorsed by Aid. Pickard, and the announcement, to say the least, startled
aome of the city fathers.
While not expressing bis opinion on
the matter, His Worship Mayor Macdonald appeared to be satisfied that
such a threat would never be carried
out. The taxing of the water mains as
land had been the work of the Provincial Government, and the City Council
had nothing whatever to do with lt,
and he thought lt hardly likely that
the company would penalize the citizens for something for which they
were not responsible.
When winding up bis remarks on the
matter His Worship displayed a
knowing look ln his eyes, which led
tbe casual observer to come to the
conclusion that the chief magistrate
had something up his sleeve.
Interesting developments are promised when the legal opinion on the
matter Ib forthcoming.
TAXATION RATE FIXED
FOR CURRENT YEAR
Limit Has About Been Reached on the
Levying Powers of the City Conn.
ell to Meet Expenditures.
The limit has about been reached
this year in the matter of levying taxes
by the City Council, there being only
one mill left which can be added to
the school rate. At the meeting of the
council on Monday night the passing
of the estimates came up and also the
fixing of the tax rate. After going Into
the matter thoroughly lt was discovered that lt will require a levy of 19
mills to meet the school expenditure,
while the full rate allowed, 20 mills,
will be levied for city requirements.
One mill of this ls to go to the upkeep
of the fire department.
It will thus be seen that the city has
about reached its limit in the matter
of raising funds by taxation, and the
City Council is confronted with a difficult proposition ln case any extraordinary and unforeseen demands are
made upon the civic exchequer.
Sale of Work Postponed.
The Ladies' Aid of Orace Methodist
Church wish it known that they have
postponed their Bale of work until a
later date, announcement of which
will appear in tbe near future.
Hospital Auxiliary to Meet.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Duties' Hospital Auxiliary will be held
Friday next at 3 p.m. in Holy Trinity
cjiurch hall. The call Is sent out by
Mrs. A. B. Clinton, honorary secretary.
Council Wants
to Be Shown
Aldermen Curious to Know the
Reason Why One Company
Has   Increased   Insurance  Rates
When the question of passing the
accounts of the two fire Insurance
companies which had been authorized
to make out policies to cover Insurance on the city property, it was
found that one. company, the London &
Lancashire had increased its rate
from (25.50 of last year to $42.75 for
this year, an Increase of (17.25, and
tbls In view of the fact that the other
company, the British Crown, had
made no Increase whatever. It was
the concensus of opinion that there
was something wrong and the aldermen decided to pass the account of
the one company while the other
was referred to the fire warden for
investigation. If it is found that the
London & Lancashire persist In raising their rate the council will do all
Its Insuring ln the one company.
COUNCIL THINKS OTHERS
SHOULD BEAR A SHARE
Believe Canadian Collieries, Chinatown
and Japtown Should Contribute
to New Hoses
That the city fathers are of the
opinion that those living outside the
city limits and who receive the benefits of the protection from fire afforded
by the city fire department should
bear their share of the expense in the
purchase of new hbse for the fire department was manifested when the
fire warden, Aid. J. C. Brown, was instructed to Interview the management
of the Canadian Collieries, and the
merchants and business men of Chinatown and Japtown with a view to having them contribute toward this absolute necessity. It was pointed out that
these parties received the beneli of
tbe protection of the fire department,
and tbe aldermen were sure they would
be willing to contribute.
STREET LIGHTS BROKEN
WILFULLY BY YOUTHS
Practice Has Become Prevalent and
Drastic Measures Will Be Taken
to Put an Ead to It.
Ot late a great many of the city
street lamps have been broken by
Btones thrown by city youths, and in
consequence the city has been put to
considerable expense. According to
the agreement between the lighting
company and the city when lights go
out of commission In the natural way
they are replaced by the company, but
that Institution will not bear the expense of replacing those which are destroyed through carelessness of vandalism. Tbe matter of city youths
breaking lamps by hitting them with
stones was brought up at the City
Council on Monday night, when it was
decided to take drastic measures to
havo the practice discontinued.
COUNCIL ENDORSES FIXED
PERCENTAGE OF SALARIES
City Fathers Decide The j Are In Favor
of the Scheme Fathered by
Duncan Trustees. '
At the regular meeting of the City
Council on Monday night a communication was read from the trustees of
the Consolidated Board of School
Trustees of Cowichan district, in
which the request was made that
Cumberland endorse their fixed percentage of teachers' salaries. Some
of the aldermen thought such a scheme
might militate against the city, which
Is at present given special consideration, but the majority of tbe aldermen thought the scheme was a good
oue aud It was endorsed.

Berlin Described as a "Barrel of Gunpowder Which May Be Ignited
Any Time"—Communist Sympathisers Appear to Have Met
With Stern Opposition at Many Points—National Assembly

Dictatorship Mooted.
Special Dispatch to The Islander.
London, March 19.—All Germany, with the exception of the
northern states, is rebellious, and Berlin is a "barrel of gunpowder
which may be ignited any time," says a Berlin dispatch filed at
the German capital on Thursday. Conditions outside Berlin arc
such that a clear view of the situation is difficult to obtain. While
it is said Soviets have been formed in a number of important towns
and cities and industrial districts, it does not appear that, the
movement is gaining momentum. Communist sympathisers seem
to have met with Btern opposition at many points. In Berlin a
general communist outbreak is still threatening. The Ebert government will return from Stuttgart to Berlin tomorrow and the
National Assembly and Prussian Diet have been convoked to meet
in Berlin on Sunday. Berlin is still under the rule of bayonets, but
troops loyal to the Ebert government patrol the streets. Forces
which supported the regime set up last Saturday by von Kapp
and his followerh left Berlin yesterday. Violent fighting between
crowds of workmen and von Kapp soldiers marked the evacuation.
One, report leads for a dictatorship by Hindenburg.
Turkish Empire Is Quickly Crumbling
Special Dispatch to The Islander.
London, March 19.—The Evening Standard says it learns that
the commander of the Turkish troops in Thrace has refused to
accept orders from Constantinople, has renounced the armistice
and purposes to establish a government in Adrianople. The correspondent of the Morning Post reports that the Turkish government is on the point of falling as a result of the Allied occupation
of Constantinople. The Turks became panic stricken when the
Allied troops marched into the city and organized resistance was
quickly broken.

two Liberal conventions, proportional
representation was not included in tin
Elections Act.

scheme.

London, March 19.—Premier Lloyd George on Thursday declared war on British Socialists, Bolshevists and revolutionaries,
when making an address in the Commons. Most of the members'*
present were coalition Liberals. The Premier inaugurated his new
platform upon which he expects to build a new national democratic
or progressive party. "I am a Liberal," said the government
leader. "I believe in progress, but not in'the policy of the labor
Party in England. There are lands where Socialism might be tried,
but this country is no place for it" Lloyd George's platform,
according to reports available, follows: (1) A fight against
labor and Socialism at home. (2) Creation of a permanent and
powerful league of nations.. (3) Coalition of all parties against

CIVIL SERVICE ACT IS FAST
BECOMING A DEAD LETTER
Much Flaunted Measure of the Late Premier Brewster to Do Away
With Patronage Is Being Nullified by Amendments Which
Seek to Permit Ministers to Hand Out Fat Jobs to Their Relatives, Friends and Political Party Heelers.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 19.—The Civil Service Act, the measure
brought down by the late Premier, Mr. Brewster, and upon the
efficiency of which in eliminatirg the evil of patronage he pinned
liis faith, is apparently soon to come within the category of "paper
legislation," a thing innocuous and ineffective. The enactment of
such an act was one of the plea9 the Liberals in 1916 advanced to
the electors for election. It ha3 now been in operation for three
years and enforced with more or less—generally less, the opposition aver—effectiveness. Hon- T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, to
whose penchant for looking after his political friends from Prince
Hupert Information secured by the opposition bears proof, was the first minister to make an assault upon the act. The attorney-general had Informed the
House he proposes to follow suit. _ ,
The minister of lands, by an amendnentto the Forest Act, proposes to take
the lumber scalers out of the Civil Service Aet. He explained they will he
permitted to remain under the act if they so desire, but as the amendment was
uesigned to permit the payment of higher wages to scalers from out of a
scaling fund to be contributed by the lumbermen, the men who desire to re-
mnln in the service in which, perhaps, they have been for years, must content
themselves with the smaller government salaries while others in the service
hul for a month or two, by withdraw. ~"

Ing therefrom, can secure the better
remuneration.
Attorney-General Farris, to Mr.
Bowser's strong protest that such a
step would be an assault upon the
whole principle of protection for the
service under the act, stated he intends
to remove the provincial police from
the operations of the act. Mr. Bowser
asserted it was obvious that in a short
time the act will be virtually a dead
letter and the evils of patronage will
he inaugurated by a government which
was wont to pride' itself upon the
purity of its motives aud its desire for
an efficient and politically free civil
service.
Bitter opposition was made by the
Conservative minority, backed by the
soldiers' party and by Hanes and Will-
son, Liberals, and Hawthornthwaite,
Socialist, to the proposed move by thc
minister of lands to permit export ol'
unmanufactured lumber from British
Columbia for a term of ten years until
June 30, 1930. It appeared that the
minister had come to some arrangement with the loggers and some lumbermen to amend the act. Mr. Bowser
opposed the move, pointing to the fact
that lt would be a radical departure
from previous policy and would have
the inevitable result of building up the
mill Industry in Puget Sound cities at
the expense of British Columbia
cities, the while the manufactured pro
duct would compete In the Canadian
market with that from this province.
In reply to the minister's statement
that the late government had permitted
■uich exports and had done it Illegally,
for there was then no authority In the
act to permit the government by order-
in-eouneil to approve of such exports,
Mr. Bowser showed where, during the
war and at a time when shipping facilities were totally lacking for export
of manufactured product and the loggers could not sell their logs, permission had been granted. But now that
the war was over and British Columbia is seeking to build up her Industries and in the face of a 'certain tremendous demand for lumber, the government proposed to permit exports
to the United States which is already
benefitting greatly at the expense of
Canada through the exchange situation. He declared such a move was
most Ill-advised and he pointed to the
certainty of the lumbering concerns
putting in larger mills to take care of
the increased exports of the unmanufactured materials and that when the
ten-year period was up they would advance that fact as a plea why they
should be permitted an extension of
the export period. Mr. Bowser's amendment to restrict the term to one year,
thus permitting the Legislature next
year to further consider tbe propriety
or otherwise of a still further extension, was defeated.
Offer Women a
Gratuitous Insult
Premier   Oliver   Double-crosses
the Ladies to Boost a

Special  Correspondence.
Victoria, March 10.—If the amused
manner in which lie listened to the
objections voiced by Mr. Bowser of his
action in ruling tbe ladies composing
the Advisory Board of Women's Institutes out 01 existence upon a legal
opinion written hy Uifflself, could be
taken as evidence of his view of the
matter, then Premier Oliver is hugely
enjoying the discomfiture of the ladies
It has developed during the week thai
the Premier, following a meeting hers'
last October of tlie advisory board, delivered himseif of an opinion that the
hoard had not been legally appointed

made their selections of representa*
tlves on tlie board such had neve.*
been approved of by tbe minister. He
hold also that the claim hy the board
lhat it was entitled to name its own
secretary was also quite wrong.
Mr. Bowser was complaining that
the ladies from tlie various districts
had come to that October meeting
quite convinced that they were there
properly, that the meeting was held
and the Premier and minister of agriculture  had addressed  it and  ut  its
conclusion Hon. Mr. Oliver had joined
hands with the ladles in singing Auld

.ionics and then came the Premier's
egal opinion that they had neve.'

isserting it was serious so far as the

NEW FRANCHISE ACT GIVES
VOTES TO FOREIGNERS AND
EXCLUDES BRITISH SUBJECTS
Oliver Government's Election Bill Grants the Franchise to Orientals Who Owe Allegiance to the Mikado, While Native-Born
Canadians and Other Subjects of the British Empire Are!
Denied the Privilege—New Law Gives Orientals the Foot-hold
They Have Been Looking For.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 19.—The new elections bill has proved the chief
point of interest in the week's debate in the House and especially
noteworthy were the opposition leader's assaults upon the measure,
one which, he pointed out, shows some startling departures from
the bill which the late Mr. Brewster had drafted and circulated
among the members of the House for their consideration. Especially has the provision for granting the franchise to Japanese war
veterans proved a contentious one. Judging from the expressions
of public opinion which have reached members, the contemplated
move by the government to permit what, Mr. Bowser claimed,
would be the entry of the thin edge of the wedge for future demands for wider privileges for the Oriental, is by no means a
popular one. On this point the opposition have come out flat-
footed. Mr. Bowser was willing to concede the sentimental phase
of the question, but in view of the strong public opinion on the
whole question of the Oriental in British Columbia, he urged that
the provision be eliminated. It appears that the proposal was
adopted by the government upon the recommendation of the
G.W.VA. of Vancouver. If that is the case there anything but
unanimity among the returned men themselves, for other associations throughout the province have wired and written to members
opposing it most strongly. Why, the opposition leader asked,
should the Japanese who served overseas get the franchise when
native-born Indians, who also did'valiant work there, be refused,
or Hindus, British subjects, be discriminated against. He bluntly
charged that the real intent was to provide the attorney-general
with a battalion of brown men who, at the dictation of their consul,
would vote as they were told, men who had no interest in British
institutions, who are still subjects of the Mikado and who, he
declared, he did not wish to see mixing in the elections with the
women of the province.
The act, Mr. Bowser asserted, was wide-open so far as possibili-
tiesties allowed for election irregularities. The much vaunted precautions for safeguarding the count of the absentee votes by a
comparison of the signatures attached to the affidavit upon the
envelopes into which these ballots would be placed, with the signatures on the voters' original application for registration, were con-
pletely nullified by the provision that if such original applications
were not available the absentee ballots could be counted anyway.
It was hard to understand that such an elaborate machinery for
safeguarding the vote would be provided only to be nullified, unless
on the theory that such a loophole had deliberately been provided.
He objected to the elimination of the education test of the old act,
thus permitting ignorant foreigners and illiterate persons the franchise. It was apparently the effort of the government to summon
to its aid at the next general elections the Orientals and the riffraff of the country, he suggested.
The sections designed to prohibit donations to campaign funds
of political parties for corrupt purposes was a mere camouflage,
astutely drafted but meaningless.
The provision for the appointment of deputy registrars in the
pay of the government was a wrong step, Mr. Bowser argued. He
urged that either the English system be adopted, one under which
all political parties name the registrars or, bettetr still, allow the
soldiers' party to name them on the understanding that men who
had seen actual service overseas and, preferably those disabled,
should be given the work.
The debate on'the Elections bill was productive of much interesting cross-firing. Mr. Bowser's claim that the old act was a
greater safeguard against election irregularities than the present
measure brought the reply that history did not show it. He retorted that the records of past political history of the province
showed that the only election crookedness was that at the Vancouver by-election in 1916 when the senior member for Vancouver
(Mr. M- A. Macdonald) was elected after a carnival of plugging.
References to campaign funds naturally brought mention from
the government side of the $500,000 P.G.E. donations. Mr. Bowser
challenged the government to appoint a proper commission to go
into the question. He declared the 1917 investigation by a House
committee before which he had refused to testify had been a mere
kangaroo court from which he would have received scant consideration at the hands of the partisan Liberal majority. But before a
proper commission he could promise the government he would be
able to tell some things of interest to his Liberal friends. To the
Premier's suggestion that the opposition leader knew how to draft
a motion calling for the appointment of such a commission, G. S.
Hanes, Liberal member for North Vancouver, whose efforts for
three years to induce the government to name a commission have
proved failures, interjected the suggestion that the Premier had
so far shown little or no evident desire for such an enquiry, but
that if he really meant what he said he would have opportunity to
vote jsr just such a motion before the present session ends.

THERE may be some people who can't afford to

it. On the other hand, there are many people who
offer that as an excuse- Yet if these people were
perfectly honest with themselves they would readily
admit that they have spent many hard-earned dollars

they to keep a strict account of their disbursements
they would find that within, say, three months, they

to put their teeth into good shape for years to come.

CIVIL SERVICE ACT IS FAST
BECOMING A DEAD LETTER
Much Flaunted Measure of the Late Premier Brewster to Do Away
With Patronage Is Being Nullified by Amendments Which
Seek to Permit Ministers to Hand Out Fat Jobs to Their Relatives, Friends and Political Party Heelers.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 19,—The Civil Service Act, the measura
brought down by the late Premier, Mr. Brewster, and upon the
efficiency of which in eliminating the evil of patronage he pinned
his faith, is apparently soon to co'iie within the category of "paper
legislation," a thing innocuous and ineffective. The enactment of
such an act was one of the plea i fhe Liberals in 1916 advanced to
the electors for election. It has now been in operation for three
years and enforced with more or less—generally less, thc opposition aver—effectiveness. Hon T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, to
whose penchant for looking after his political friends from Prince
Itupert Information secured by the opposition hears proof, was the lirst minister to make an assault upon the act. The attorney-general had informed the
House he proposes to follow suit.
The minister of lands, by an amendnentto the Forest Act, proposes to take
the lumber scalers out of the Civil Service Act. He explained they will be
permitted to remain under the act if they so desire, but as the amendment was
designed to permit the payment of higher wages to scalers from out of a
scaling fund to be contributed by tlie lumbermen, the men who desire to remain in the service in which, perhaps, they have been for years, must content
themselves with the smaller government salaries while others in the service
but for a month or two, by withdrawing therefrom, enn secure the better
remuneration.
Attorney-General Farris, to Mr.
Bowser's strong protest that such a
step would be an assault upon the
whole principle of protection for tlie
service under the act, stated he intends
to remove the provincial police from
the operations of the act. Mr. Bowser
asserted it was obvious that In a short
time the act will he virtually a dead
letter and the evils of patronage will
he Inaugurated hy a government which
was wont to pride itself upon the
purity of Its motives and its desire for
an efficient and politically free civil
service.
Bitter opposition was made hy the
Conservative minority, backed by thc
soldiers' party and by Hanes and Will-
son, Liberals, and Hawthornthwaite,
Socialist, to the proposed move hy the
minister of lands to permit export of
unmanufactured lumber from British
Columbia for a term of ten years until
June 30, 1930. It appeared that the
minister had come to some arrangement with the loggers and some lumbermen to amend the act. Mr. Bowser
opposed the move, pointing to the fact
that it would be a radical departure
from previous policy and would have
the inevitable result of building up the
mill industry in Puget Sound cities at
the expense of British Columbia
cities, the while the manufactured pro
duct would compete in the Canadian
market with that from this province.
In reply to the minister's statement
that tlie late government had permitted
such exporss and had done it illegally,
'or there was then no authority In the
act to permit the government by order-
in-council to approve of such exports,
Mr. Bowser showed where, during the
war and at a time when shipping facilities were totally lacking for export
ot manufactured product and the loggers could not sell their logs, permission had been granted. But now that
the war was over and British Columbia is seeking to build up her industries and in the face of a certain tre-
aiendous demand for lumber, the government proposed to permit exports
to the United States which ls already
benefitting greatly at the expense of
Canada through the exchange situation. He declared such a move was
most ill-advised and he pointed to the
certainty of the lumbering concerns
putting in larger mills to take care of
the increased exports of the unmanufactured materials and that when the
ten-year period was up they would advance that fact as a plea why they
should be permitted an extension of
Ihe export period. .Mr. Bowser's amendment to restrict the term to one yenr,
thus permitting the Legislature next
year to further consider the propriety
or otherwise of a still further extension, was defeated.

NEW FRANCHISE ACT GIVES
VOTES TO FOREIGNERS AND
EXCLUDES BRITISH SUBJECTS
Oliver Government's Election Bill Grants the Franchise to Orientals Who Owe Allegiance to the Mikado, While Native-Born
Canadians and Other Subjects of the British Empire Are:
Denied the Privilege—New Law Gives Orientals the Foot-hold
They Have Been Looking For.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 19.—The new elections bill has proved thc chief
point of interest in the week's debate in thc House and especially
noteworthy were the opposition leader's assaults upon the measure,
one which, he pointed out, shows some startling departures from
the bill which the late Mr. Brewster had drafted and circulated
among the members of the House for their consideration. Especially has the provision for granting the franchise to Japanese war
veterans proved a contentious one. Judging from the expressions
of public opinion which have reached members, the contemplated
move by the government to permit what, Mr. Bowser claimed,
would be the entry of the thin edge of the wedge for future demands for wider privileges for the Oriental, is by no means a
popular one. On this point the opposition have come out flat-
footed. Mr. Bowser was willing to concede the sentimental phase
of the question, but in view of the strong public opinion on the
whole question of the Oriental in British Columbia, he urged that
the provision be eliminated. It appears that the proposal was
adopted by the government upon the recommendation of the
G.W.VA. of Vancouver. If that is the case there anything but
unanimity among the returned men themselves, for other associations throughout the province have wired and written to members
opposing it most strongly. Why, the opposition leader asked,
should the Japanese who served overseas get the franchise when
native-born Indians, who also did'valiant work there, be refused,
or Hindus, British subjects, be discriminated against. He bluntly
charged that the real intent was to provide the attorney-general
with a battalion of brown men who, at the dictation of their consul,
would vote as they were told, men who had no interest in British
institutions, who are still subjects of the Mikado and who, he
declared, he did not wish to see mixing in the elections with the
women of the province.
The act, Mr. Bowser asserted, was wide-open so far as possibili-
tiesties allowed for election irregularities. The much vaunted precautions for safeguarding the count of the absentee votes by a
comparison of the signatures attached to the affidavit upon the
envelopes into which these ballots would be placed, with the signatures on the voters' original application for registration, were con-
pletely nullified by the provision that if such original applications
were not available the absentee ballots could be counted anyway.
It was hard to understand that such an elaborate machinery for
safeguarding the vote would be provided only to be nullified, unless
on the theory that such a loophole had deliberately been provided.
He objected to the elimination of the education test of the old act,
thus permitting ignorant foreigners and illiterate persons the franchise. It was apparently the effort of the government to summon
to its aid at the next general elections the Orientals and the riffraff of the country, he suggested.
The sections designed to prohibit donations to campaign funds
of political parties for corrupt purposes was a mere camouflage,
astutely drafted but meaningless.
The provision for the appointment of deputy registrars in the
pay of the government was a wrong step, Mr. Bowser argued. He
urged that either the English system be adopted, one under which
all political parties name the registrars or, bettetr still, allow the
soldiers' party to name them on the understanding that men who
had seen actual service overseas and, preferably those disabled,
should be given the work.
The debate on the Elections bill was productive of much interesting cross-firing. Mr. Bowser's claim that the old act was a
greater safeguard against election irregularities than the present
measure brought the reply that history did not show it. He retorted that the records of past political history of the province
showed that the only election crookedness was that at the Vancouver by-election in 1916 when the senior member for Vancouver
(Mr. M. A. Macdonald) was elected after a carnival of plugging.
References to campaign funds naturally brought mention from
the government side of the $500,000 P.G.E. donations. Mr. Bowser
challenged the government to appoint a proper commission to go
into the question. He declared the 1917 investigation by a House
committee before which he had refused to testify had been a mere
kangaroo court from which he would have received scant consideration at the hands of the partisan Liberal majority. But before a
proper commission he could promise the government he would be
able to tell some things of interest to his Liberal friends. To the
Premier's suggestion that the opposition leader knew how to draft
a motion calling for the appointment of such a commission, G. S.
Hanes, Liberal member for North Vancouver, whose efforts for
three years to induce the government to name a commission have
proved failures, interjected the suggestion that the Premier had
so far shown little or no evident desire for such an enquiry, but
that if he really meant what he said he would have opportunity to
vote hr just such a motion before the present session ends.

THE GERMAN REVOLT
While the announcement  oi
the revolt ill Germany last week-
end came with a certain degrei
ol' suddenness, il can hardly bi
Paid Unit the world was verj
greatly surprised, nor has ^ it
shown very much concern. Foi
a time it looked as though i
serious effort would be made t<,
take tlie ex-Kaiser back ti
Germany and place him upon thi
throne of Prussia at least, if no
the whole of what now remain
ol' the former German Empire
aud ihis might have been accom
plished were it not that Britaii
received information in advanc
as to what might be expected
and she forestalled the move by
notifying Holland that she wouli
be held responsible t'or Wilhelm
Hohenzollern and that he must
not be allowed to leave the Neth
erlands. No doubt the Uutcl
would willingly give up the ex
Kaiser to his own people, if Cm
no other reason than to get rit
of him with all the worries at
tendant upon his presence in th
country, but they have no doubl
acquired a wholesome respect loi
the Allies, and more especiallj
Great Britain, and they will nt
doubt see to it that their guest
unwelcome though he may -be,
will be compelled to remain
where he is until the Allies finally decide upon what shall become of him. It was the possibility that Wilhelm would get
back to Germany that caused a
Hurry, of excitement throughout
the world, because that would
inevitably mean another war,
and the world has had all the
war it desires for some time.
As to the counter-revolution,
it would appear that it has about
run its course, and in fact, there
is every indication that the Ebert
government will soon be back in
its old place, if not in its entirety,
at least in part. No doubt the
monarchists, who were responsible for the revolt, are experiencing deep disappointment at the
failure of their plans, and no
doubt the ex-Kaiser shares that
disappointment with them. A
successful coup of this kind is
the only thing that can save Wilhelm from his fate, and the failure of the present one must
prove disheartening to him as
well as to his supporters and
those desirous of seeing the
country governed by a monarch.
The rev-Ir, tnotirh a failure,
should v..t\e tin- result of teaching the German government that
too great -are cannot be taken
in handling affairs now and for
BOme time to come. It has been
discovered that no great reliance
can lie reposed in an army, es-
pecially when that army is composed chiefly of men opposed to
the republican form ol' government and who would welcome
their old war lord back again.
The revllt has also hit the government in its weakest point; it
has given the Spartacans tlie opportunity they have been waiting for ever since their last defeat, and a split appears to have
supporters of the republic. The
occurred in the ranks of the
Spartacans are advocating a
soviet and are stretching out
their hands to the ruling power
in Russia, but it is not apparent
at the time of writing that there
is any likelihood of interference
on the part of the Russians.
Russia was prepared for a soviet
when it came, while Germany is
not. In fact the great majority
of the German people are opposetl
to any such form of government
although they are firmly opposed
to the restoration* of the monarch-
The  revolt  has brought  another lesson to the German peo

nise or whether they will await

lossible eventually which makes
he present situation a most un-
lesirable one.
EATING HUMBLE PIE.
It is only natural to suppose
hat Premier Oliver and Attor-
ley-Gcneral Farris are not find-
ng very much to their liking the
tumble pie which they are being
lalled upon to eat these days.
They started out with a great.
lourish when the new Franchise
\ct was introduced in the Legis-
ature, and they were prepared
,o ride rough-shod over every-
)ody in carrying out their desire
o have the law enacted. Since
;hen the light appears to have
peirced their erstwhile density,
because they have come to the
conclusion that it would not be
.vise to force the passage of the
:lause in that act giving the
franchise to Orientals, and they
have consented to withdraw it.
Iiowever, the public can rest
isured that they have not
adopted this course willingly.
i'hey thought they saw some
advantage in it to them at elec-
ion time or they would not have
inserted it in the act, and they
no doubt still feel that they could
turn it to good account if only
the opposition and a great sec-
ion of the general public would
remain passive. But these have
hown that they will not, and it
as apparently dawned upon the
[overnment that the passage of
liich a measure would sound the
leath knell to their existence.
The government, however,
cannot escape the consequences
ii' their attempt to pass such an
mti'ageous piece of legislation,!
as they will surely discover when
the people of the province are
given the opportunity of expressing themselves at the polls. A
government must indeed be in
fearful straits when they are
compelled to enact such laws in
order to retain office, and any
self-respecting government
would relinquish office at once
after being compelled to withdraw' after having made the
statements they did when introducing the measure. But the
Oliver Government will apparently do anything to retain
power, and they cannot be expected to resign the treasury
benches until they are kicked out
by an indignant electorate.
Passing of the
Turkish Harem
Old Tradition  of  Woman as a
Chattel of the Oriental Has-
Been Discarded in These
Modern Times.
ll' the Oliver Government was
to withdraw others of their obnoxious measures the people
might believe them honest.
No longer does the Turkish woman
leek the blandishments and the line
ippniiitiueiits of the harem. No longer
loes she pine for the ease and comfort
af tlie hureniilk witli its favors from
thc sehuullk.
She wunts her pasha; hut he must
ie her one and only lover, sharing his
.Sections no longer indiscriminately
villi ilio maidens of his harem.
She Is familiar with the old trndi-
lon of tlio women ns the chattel of thc
Oriental in the Eastern Palace of
•nlygamy, nnd sho remembers how
his seclusion of women in thn hou ic-
uild of Iho pasha was once n funda-
iieninl Oriental conception, with tis
irlgln earlier even fhnn the precepts
if Isallm ns set forth In the Koran.
But she disregards entirely Iho tradition and custom of tho past.
For, the veil has boon lifted. The
charchaf thnt once obscured her lovely features has been raised. It is still
worn, but hooded over the coiffure,
vith all lier fine features revealed to
the gaze of the world—emblematical
if the fact that the harem is fast van-
shing into the past to take Its place
-vith the musty old cusoms of yeser-
year.
Wlm was onco enso and luxury o
io Turkish woman has become slavery
uid sex degredalon. Education, oco-
lomtcs and he war have lifted Orien-
al womanhood to n now .level of civi-
Izatton In which llie harem no longer
's to be tolerated.
"Tho harem today is approaching the
condition of un almost extinct instl-
iiition," says a lonelier just back from
Constantinople. "Ouly among the oldest families and in the exclusive old
rui'Hish families is It maintained at
ill, and then it Is nothing as compared
.vith Iho harom of the late Abdul
[amid, who bad his thousand wives.
\mong the so-called middle and poor-
r classes there Is no such thing as
ihe harem; indeed, those classes have
lot been Involved for many years, except as an occasional handsome girl
.vas induced to take up her residence
in tho palace of a pasha. We are in-
sllnod to think first of tlie harem so
oon :is wo mention Turkey; hut in
l'urkoy Iho harom seems nothing like
.ve assume it to he from this viewpoint,
fhe assumption that a powerful pasha
pountjed upon any girl and dragged
ller off like one of the Sabine women
is fnr from the truth, Polygamy was
long tolerated over there because the
Koran permitted a Turk to have more
than one wife. It was part ot their religion.
Today all is changed and changing.
Tlie average man Is content to have
one wife. Tlie average woman wants
ine husband woh Is exclusively hor
own. It was not so long ago that a
Turkish woman had to veil her face to
every man except her father, her
rotlier or her husband. Now tlle veil
is lifted and the Turkish woman ap-
peors everywhere In public with an
open face.
Can you Imagine Iho Turkish women dancing on battleships with the
men of Great Britain? These things
'c huppenitng ail the time now. A
Turkish official actually appears now
at a public function nccompnnled by
his wife, and he Is proud now to have
hor with hlm where ons'o he kept her
and his many othor wives iu seclusion.
And tho average Turkish official
or man of higher station, whether In
affairs of state, politics or business,
wants an educated wife. She need no
iongor he pretty above every other
virtue, but she must be possessed of
those qualities that today nro consld-
eii woman's greatest assets.
"I have seen men of keen judgment
who hud come to Turkey wlill an antipathy for nny and every thing Turkish completely confounded hy these
subtle Turkish women. They smile up
Into your face ingratiatingly and tell
yiu navely thnt Turkey wants light
and freedom nn education. They tell
you Turkey has heen groping for
y 'ars in darkness and is now only beginning to see the light—nnd will the
Knglishman deny Turkey ln her desire to emancipate herself from the
I -riilile things of her past!
"Turkish women now have a say as
li their marriage. Where once they
were tlie prey of their men, now they
have a full voice in the matter of matrimony, and, Indeed, of everything affecting tlieir own lives. Once a Turk
could discard a woman with a wave
of a hand. Is she no longer was pretty
und attractive or offended hor pasha
in any way, she could forthwith be
banished.".        ,   •
Now the Turkish woman may sue
for divorce—something she could
never do before—and by showing just
cause guln freedom from her husband.
If she brought property with her Into
the marriage stnto she can take it with
her afler divorce. This is something
new for Turkey.

BEVAN FOOTBALLERS DEFEAT
CUMBERLAND QUITE EASILY
In a Somewhat Weird Exhibition on the Part of the City Team the
Men From the Suburb Carry Off the Honors in What Was the
Deciding Contest of the District League and Incidentally the
Trophy Representing the Championship—Curious Shuffling
About of Players Baffles the Spectators.
Pure Bred Versus
Grade Dairy Stock
Helpful Suggestions by Experimental Farm Superintendent at Agassiz.
In what was one of the most weird exhibitions of football, so
far as the Cumberland team is concerned, which has been witnessed
here was pulled off at the Recreation Grounds last Sunday afternoon, when the team from Bevan took the Cumberland eleven into
camp to the tune of three goals to nil, and at that they did not
have to exert themselves to any great extent. It must be admitted,
however, that the team which lined up for Cumberland was not a
representative one by any means, as several of the city's best players wore the Bevan uniform, and at least one of the regulars was
i.i no condition to go on the field; in fact his team would have been
much better without him even though they could not find a man
to take his place.
There must be something wrong somewhere, also, when one of
the star players of a team will, without a moment's warning, refuse
to go on the field for his club and in less than thirty minutes turn
out in the uniform of the opposing club. And this is what happened in Sunday's game. It was also noticeable that some of the
old reliables were missing from the lineup while their places had
tip be filled by comparatively second-raters. This, however, is no
reflection on those who are not looked upon as regulars and who
consented to fill the breach, because they all did very well under
the circumstances, and some of them showed up even brilliantly.
On the other hand, Bevan had out a very strong team, much
stronger than that town can susally collect together, and there
appeared to be a great deal more cohesion among the players than
was the case with their opponents.
The match itself, however, was a useful one, because it gave
the fans an opportunity of comparing the relative value of several
players over which considerable controversy has occurred, and it
cannot be said that the exhibition put up by some of them on Sunday left a very favorable impression on the part of the "new blood."
Whether this was because those who had been replaced started out
with the determination of demonstrating that they are not has-
beens or not, but certain it is they proved conclusively that they
are not yet ready for the discard, and those who are responsible for
the selecting of the team to represent the city in the important
matches scheduled to take place in the near future might do worse
than revise their judgment regarding certain players if they wish
to have the city represented by the strongest team which can be
got together.
It would also be the part of wisdom if a firm hand were taken
with those players who think their services cannot be dispensed
with and who take umbrage at goodness knows what and decline
to play. Such men are a weakness to any team, because they cannot be depended upon. The man who cannot be relied upon to remain loyal to his team and play whenever he is called upon cannot
be depended on to do his best while on the field under all circumstances. The club might have to call upon a player of not so high
standing tp take his place, but the organization and the fans would
know that the substitute was doing his best, and that counts for
much in athletic contests. The brilliant player who has whims and
fancies and who is liable to fly off the handle or turn sulky on the
field had much better be left off the team altogether. It is better
to field an inferior team of enthusiasts and suffer defeat than to
place confidence in men who can produce the goods if they so desire,
but who are very liable to "buck" at the crucial moment.
It would be invidious to attempt to give a detailed account of
the game played on Sunday, but special mention should be made
of the work done by Bob Brown on the half-back line and Bill
Walker in goal. The latter especially showed that he has not lost
any of his old-time ability to protect his goal, as he saved his team
on many occasions. Doherty and Slaughter were also in good form
and played above their average game of this year. Perhaps the
best all-round exhibition of football was that given by Boothman

The following are suggestions made
by Mr. W. H. Hicks, superintendent of
the experimental farm ut Agassiz:
The old question "would you advise
mo to start Inlo the pure brad dairy
cattle buslnosj?" Is being asked ,ih fro
fluently these times ns over h''fnrc and
is receiving just as muny negative re-
piles as formerly. There are so many
factors which enlor Into the problem
that one has to study the question from
every angle. Good pure bred cattle o'
either sex are selling for such good
prices now thut men who havo proven
themselves successful wilh grade
dock cannot afford to continue without pure bredu. We all know of certain
Srhde hards making more money foi
the owners than some pure pre 1 herd

liunity lias examples' of men In th-
pure bred business who neve.' shouY

proper type, and either provou pro-
.lucers or with proven ancestry, II is

comparatively small outlay is necessary when starting In this inniiuer.
It Ib remarkable how quickly a herd
an be built up from a few foundation
cows! The dairy herd on the Agassiz
experimental farm was started by tlie
purchase in December, 1911, of twenty-
eight grade cows and the following
/car three pure bred cows. Then ln
.he fall of 11115 two pure bred heifer
and Sullivan. Although the former was unfortunate in missing
a couple of good chances in front
of goal, his work throughout the
game was of a high order, and he
shows improvement with every
appearance on the field. Banner-
man showed lots of speed and his
feeding of the centre forwards
was the best he has produced
yet. Joe Lapsansky at full back
for Bevan played a consistent
and, in spots, a brilliant game,
relieving his goal keeper of considerable trouble on many occasions. Gibson was also much in
evidence, especially in mid-field.
The men of Bevan are to be
congratulated upon their success
in winning the district championship.

The Seattle Mets are on their way to Ottawa, whom they will
meet the team of that city in tho content fur the Stanley cap, emblematic of the world'a hookey championship, thc iir.it gams beir.g
played under eastern rules', six men a side, on Monday evening.
The second game will be played under western rules and after that
he two systems will alternate. As the odd games will bo played
tinder eastern rules the Ottawa:*, will have a slight advantage in this
.■espect, although the Seattle team ha; been prett;y well Bchooled in
ihe eastern game.
In the final game of tlie play-oa at Vancouver the; Millionaire i
.1 that city put up a very poor exhibition, comparatively speakjjis,
igainst tlieir rivals, the latter winning by six goals In nil. Thi.3
>vas all the more noticeable in view of Iheir recent victory tit Seattle. And in this respect it may be said that the result oJ the playoff has started once more the oft-repeated rumor that all the games
,n the schedule of the Coast Hockey League were lint played on the
level. To say thc least there appea * i to be good ground" for this
blief, because it is hard to conceive how the teanu could see-naw
as they did during the season and then ono team start out and ;'-:ii
away in such a fashion as the Seattle players did from Vancouver.
The games may have been won and lost on (heir merits, but it will
require more than an ordinary amount of persuasion to convinca

•emembercd that seldom, if ever, has the east been ablofo defeat
the west in the latter's territory and vice versa. In their own territory both east and west appear to be invincible. In view of thi? it
might not be a bad idea to have the struggle for the cup staged
midway, say at Winnipeg. The fans would thus be enabled to get
t better line on the relative merits of the contestants-
As 3tated, the first game in the Stanley cup scries will be played

ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S "BOMB"
PROVED A VERITABLE "DUD"
Smarting Under the Chastisemert of the Opposition, Hon. Mr.

Explosive Used Turned Out to Be Nothing Better Than a
Squib, the Result Being a Con plete Rebuff for the "Gun-Shy"
Head of the Provincial Law D >partment.
. Special Corre. pondence.
Victoria, March 19.—In an efl'ort to stage a "come-back" in
reply to opposition assaults which, during the past week, have
centered upon him antl have provided the House with an excellent
example of the gentle art of getting under the hide of the administration, Hon. J. W. deB- Karris, on Friday, exploded what was
intended to prove a veritable bomb-shell and overwhelm a minority
which had up to date this session riore than held its own with the
"brute majority." All week the a.torney-general has given plain
indication that the opposition criticism of the game department,
under the direction of his dentist henchman, Dr. Baker, and Mr.
Bowser's telling assault upon the weaknesses of tlie new Election Act, which
lie tore tu shreds and In the framing of which he saw the hand of the "wicked
partner In the administration," had got home. The minister displayed an
amount ot peevishness and acrimony lhat, however undignified lt was, was
none the less relished by the opposition as proving the effectiveness of their
attacks.
It was when he was attempting to -answer Mr. B owser on the Elections
bill, one. which, the opposition leader claimed, left the door wide open for
the grossest irregularities, that the    atturney-general sprung his  sensation.
Declaring that Mr. Dowser was well I	
qualified to speak of irregularities and   been elected In Fort George by ten or
crookedness, and accusing him of
"vile insinuations" ' and "despicable
tactics," Ihm. Mr. Farris produced a
copy of an alleged cable which, he
averred, had been sent by Mr. Bowser
immediately following the general
elections on September 14. 1916, to
Sir Richard McBride, then agent-general for the province at London. Thh
cable, as quoted by the attorney-general, was as follows: "Soldiers' vote
may give us from twelve to fifteen
seats. I want ISO. Slump was general
everywhere. Prohibition carried by
seven thousand." into this cable the
attorney-generaT, whose virtuous in-,
dignation of the opposition propensity
tor insinuation was declaimed In theatrical manner, proceeded to read the
insinuation that Mr. Bowser was then
sending out an S.O.S. call for help, in
other words, demanding of the late
Sir Richard that he produce the goods
lu the shape of 180 votes to permit of
the election of his former political
partner, those votes, apparently, to lie
secured somehow in the count of the
overseas soldier vote. He labored upon
ihe phrase "I want 180." He saw in It
the appeal of a desperate political
leader whose party had been overwhelmed by the righteous Indignation
of an outraged electorate, and who
was willing lo resort to uny means to
secure Ills return, even to the extent
of manipulating tlie overseas vote to
make up the deficiency In his civilian
vote at home.
It cannot he said that the attorney-
general's insinuation—he was careful
nut to make any direct charge—created uny particular excitement, lt did
ot assume the proportions, even, ot
ui   near sensation It was Intended to
.    It developed that the above cable,
incorrectly quoted by Hon. Mr. Farris.
waa found on the Hies of the agent-
general's ollice when the commission
..posed of Messrs. Whiteside, Paused Nelson, appointed by the 1017
egislature to  proceed overseas  and
ivestlgate the charges of Irregularl-
i in llie taking of the overseas vote
i prohibition referendum, was In
' . :-■        It will be remembered that ai
,.\ of that commission's report In
tl     special session of the Legislature
September,  1917. the    Legislature
decided  to throw out- some -lonO odd
thus giving a majority to prohi-
hlti.iii,      The copy of the cable  was
HI..(     * k by the commission and
to the late Mr. Brewster who.
 ntly, was unable to read Into It
thi  meaning the legal mind of ihe at-
torney-g ral has discovered. But it
would appear the hitler saw his op-
tnnlty to make good his oft-repeat,
pd declaration that he wouhl meet his
political trnducer. Ihe opposition leader, on the floor of the House and there
confound him. The fact is the incident
has not created even a ripple of ex-
i Itemonl In the political world. The
bomb-shell has proved to be a "dud."
The facts are that a cable was sent
by Mr. Bowser In reply to one he received on September 16, 1916, two days
after tlie general elections, from Sir
Richard McBride, as follows: "London Times reports reverses. Much re-
gret. Telegraph particulars. Also state
votes referendum." On the same date
Mr. Bowser replied: "Soldiers' votes
may give us twelve to fifteen seats in
the House. I want 180 to elect me.
Slump was general everywhere. Prohibition carried by seven thousand."
Mr. Bowser pnnijjK-ly took up the
■insinuation by the •attorney-general,'
pointing to the fact that, off-hand, he
was unable to state whether the attorney-general's rendition of the cable
was correct or not. It was quite true,
he said, that he had been defeated on
the civilian vote In Vancuuver, the
while his confrere, Mr. W. R. Ross, had
twelve of a majority. Naturally they
vere both anxious to know how the
■ote overseas was going. He had been
niportuned by the press, by the Liberals and others to resign ollice, but
ie had considered it was proper for
lim to hold on until the results of the
iverseas vote were complete. The
:ount of that vote started In London
n October, by which time tlie result
if the count of tlie soldier vote in C'an-
ida outside of British Columbia had
icen completed, giving him a majority
iver Donelly in Vancouver of t'orty-
lix. He had cabled Sir Richard several
imes asking him to keep him posted
on the count In London. At that time
sir Richard was very ill, how ill was I
lot realized here. In fact he was al-
.nost blind, and the supervision of the
_,ondon count was entrusted to a Lon-
lnn barrister and it was proceeded
-villi before representatives of both
political parties as well as those of
slie prohibition and liquor Interests.
On October 23 Mr. Bowser cabled to
i\r Richard as follows: "Am now
elected forty-six ahead of Donelly.
Cable how I am runniing there; also
Ross."
It connot be said that the attorney-
tciierai displayed any considerable
.ogle in his insinuations. In one
ireath he referred to the alleged en-
nity between the opposition leader
ind Sir Richard McBride who, he as-
erted, lmd been driven out of tlie
Conservative government by Mr. Bower; iu the next he wns askiing the
louse to believe that Sir Richard, ln
he face of that Ill-treatment, was
billing to assist Mr. Bowser by luuni-
mlatlon of llie overseas vote. It also
oveloped that Mr. Bowser's cable
aentiontng the 180 votes needed to
■led him, wus found on the open files
if the agent-general's office. It could
lardly be expected that a man, as
shite a politician as was the late Sii
ilchard, would have left any im-rimi-
.atlng cable lying around loose had be
■en in ii the hidden meaning the at-
orney-general professed to have discovered.
Mr. Bowser on Friday afternoon ex-
dained to the House that he coiUd
iiirdly be expected, off-hand, to deal
.lib a matter of nearly four years ago
.'e stated he would, ufter securing
ither cables that had passed between
imself and Sir Richard, make a i'ur-
her statement to the House, us was
.is riglit. This statement was mads
.. Monday afternoon,
Comment among Liberul member*
if the House Indicated clearly that as
. political sensation the attorney-gen-
ral's allegations, based upon thai
side, were very fur-fetched. As u
ainpalgn roorbach on the eve of an
lection It might have served a pursue. But In the cold light of logic the
omb-shcll had proved nothing but a
squib.
Air. Bowser's statement was as follows:
"When the hon. attorney-genera!
nade a statement on Friday last about
i cable 1 sent to the then ngcnt-gen-
iral iii London, Sir Richard McBride
was speaking from memory on a
natter which happened In 1916, am*,
also on the spur of the moment. Since
,'lien I have had an opportunity oi
looking over my files and I find the
iacts are as follows:
"The elections were held on the
14lh of September and on the 16th of
September I received the following
cable from Sir Richard McBride:
London Times reports reverses. Much
regret. Telegraph particulars, also
state votes referenda.'
"Feeling that ho was Interested In
me personally as we had known one
another from our university days
twenty-five years before, and notwith
standing what my Liberal friends have
always claimed we were fast friends
until his death. 1 cabled as follows on
the 16th: 'Soldiers' votes may give us
12 to 15 seats in the House. I want 180
to elect me. Slump was general everywhere. Prohibition carried here by
7000.'     -
"We expected the soldiers' vote
-vould turn the election iu our favor
iu one seat in Victoria, Esquimalt,
Mbcrni, Islands, Comox, Delta, Slocan
end my own seat in Vancouver, giving
us IB. Esquimalt, Delta and my own
vere won by the soldiers' votes, giving
us 10.
"The language used by me was per-
ectly Innocent to convey to Sir Rich-
ird that I had been defeated in the
■Ivilinn 'Vote by 180,.   hut a devious
nlnd cnuld nf course put an Improper
(instruction on tlie words.
"i could have expressed myself in
uuny otlier terms such us '1  lost by
so.' 'I am defeated by 180,' 'I am down
:S0,' etc. Now what did I sny, 'I want
80 to elect me' und by reading this
enlence witli tlie lirst sentence about
ioldiers' votes, I confidently expected
lie soldiers' votes would elect me as
.veil as others und this sentence must
ie   taken   with   the   context    of   the
cable.
The hon. the attorney-general did
not read the whole sentence, because
she first words, "I want 180' suited his
fiery declamation better and would
leave the suggestion that I was ordering the agent-general to procure these
rates for me. My confidence In the
loldiers was not misplaced. I won by
116.
"I cabled him about prohibition because he asked me—nol to notify Tulk
is suggested by the attorney-general,
o get busy and procure these number
if votes.
"1 was not Interested In the Tulks.
fhey were no political friends of mine,
.n fact, they did all they could to de-
eat nie in 1916, and supported my
Mends opposite, and I would judge
rom the revelations in the public accounts commission tiie last few days
.hey were very close to the officials of
ny friend the attorney-general.
"I received no reply from Sir Ricli-
ird as the cable required no answer—
t was just giving information asked
or by him and carried with it no improper suggestion.
"On October 23, after the Canadian
loldiers' votes were counted in Vic-
.oria, 1 cabled Sir Richard as follows:
'Am now elected by 46 ahead of Donelly. Cable how I am running there,
also Ross.'
"I still felt that he would want to
mow about his two old colleagues.
"We were also both anxious to know
if we were holding our own. They lusd
lien been counting the ballots for ten
lays In London In the presence of the
agents of all parties, including1 the
.lberals, ami anyone attending could
lave seen how I was running.
"On Friday I spoke of this cable,
hiukiug it was sent ubout tlie same
ime as tlie first one, but 1 now find
he date Is later, but considering i
.*as speaking from memory as to an
ucident happening three und a half
ears ago, 1 think I did fairly well.
"1 have these cables in my hand.
,'one of them are marked 'Conlklen-
lal,' which should Impress nny doubt-
ng Thomas.'
"Owing to Sir Richard's health I
eceived no answer to tills cable of
Ictuber 23rd.
"1 nutice in Saturday's Times the
lonoralile the Premier says the votes
vere never counted in England. He
s mistaken about this, and if he turns
ip the Military Forces Voting Act of
.•916 lie will see his mistake. The only
.*otes counted In Victorlu were the
loldiers1 votes taken ou this side ot
ihe Atlantic.
"They started counting tlie overseas
votes In London on October 12.
"You call see that my first cable
was a perfectly innocent une. Inn of
course an evil suggestion can bo made
if it. if It sails political purposes,
"It is just twenty-tour years since I
'Irst offered myself as a candidate tu
he electors of Vancouver, uud during
i hut whole period I have never taken
part In uny crooked election, and I am
iure this Is the opinion held of me by
he great majority of Ihe general
public.
"No different suggestion wus ever
■mile until the hue attorney-general
insinuated that my money was be-
ilnd the Seattle pluggers in 1916, und
igain by the present attorney-general
in Friday last.
"I have represented Vnneouver con-
itltuency for seventeen ycurs in the
House, and I propose at thc coming
general election to have the people of
Vancouver decide between the honorable the attorney-general nnd myself,
and they can then also come to a conclusion whether my version of this
cable is correct or tlie interpretation:;
put on It by the attorney-general.
"Any fair-minded gentleman opposite, unless blinded by party prejudice, will be forced to the conclusion
that this cable wus a perfectly Innocent one, and lt mny now be fittingly
termed the 'boomerang' cable.
"it ls a pity- the honorable the attorney-general had not read the whole
of the cable quietly ahd had not left
3Ut an important part of It, and it ls
also a pity that he shouted at the top
af his voice to carry venom with the
improper suggestion he made.
"I 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 in their caucus, but If they
knew the attorney-general as well as
I do, I think next time they had better
stage something more conclusive, and
have some other member of the cabinet
chosen to do the work who will at
[east read the cable in its entirety.
"This cable, or an alleged copy of
t, has been apparently treasured up
,n the strong box of the honorable the
Premier for two and a half years, and
.vas only handed by the Premier to
-he attorney-general to be used In the
lebate and at once returned to the
Premier.
"Now that the honorable tlie Pre-
.nier apparently is developing a habit
if photographing documents, 1 would
tuggest that we have a true copy of
tills cable photographed and circulated throughout the province, aiid 1 will
be glad to loan him my original cable
of October 23 to Sir Richard, so that
the electurs cau read the true enpies
and decide fur themselves.
"As a result of the statement made
by tlie honorable tlie Premier In Sat-
urdny's Times, I wish, in conclusion,
to withdraw the suggestion made by
me in tlie House that tills cable was
extracted secretly from the private file
of Sir Richard, as it appears to have
been placed on the official file in the
ordinary way, open to anyone in the
agent-general's office, which should
convince any fair-minded man that
Sir Richard never thought for one
moment that I was making the highly
improper suggestion to him, insinuated by the honorable the attorney-general, illegally to arrange the returns
so that I would be elected."

LAND SETTLENENT BOARD IS
SPENDING MONEY LAVISHLY
They Have Already Been Advanced About a Million and a Half
Dollars and They Have Only Secured Sixty-seven Settlers—
Department of Lands and Settlements Board Display Very
Little Affinity in Their Dealings With One Another.
Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 19.—In view ot the
tact that the Provincial Land Settlement Board ln the term *! Its existence settled Jtist sixty-seven Individuals on the land, it would appear that
the $41,000 odd it ls costing annually
for administrative outlays ls based,
not upon actual results from the standpoint of settlement, but rather from
that of outlays of public moneys on
a dozen scattered schemes none ot
which as yet have been completed nor
are likely to be for some considerable
lime. The board lias bad advanced
to It by the government $1,476,603 of
public moneys, so Hon. E. O. Barrow,
minister of agriculture, has informed
Mr. Bowser. To date some $858,000
has been expended on the following
schemes: Courtenay soldiers' settlement scheme, $336,806; Creston soldier
settlement scheme, $219,168; Christian
Ranch at Kelowna, $55,171; Fernie
settlement area, $20,713; Telkwa area,
$30,820; Smlthers area, $4,130; Hose
Lake area, $750; Alexandria area,
$490; Ten-mile Lake area, $430; Francois Lake area, $1,950. In addition
$30,125 has been expended on the
Sumas Lake reclamation scheme.
While the minister did not say so, it
is probable that the $9,000 "rake-olf"
secured by Morrison, former president
of the Liberal Association at Kelowna,
ls included in the above outlays on
the Christian ranch, his profit on the
purchase which cost Director Delinrl
his position on the Settlement Board.
In regard to the Creston area, Mr.
Jones secured some interesting data
Say "Baker"
and You Get
Farris' Goat
Attorney-General "Goes Up In
the Air" When Reference is
Made to His Favorite.
from tlie Minister: Some 7,000 'acres
were secured, 5,000 being bought and j
2,000 taken on option. No less thau
1200 acres, the minister admits, are
unfit for cultivation. The area was
bought without a survey being made,
the minister stating •that the report
of the board's representatives being
deemed sufficient to warrant tlie acquisition of the laud, the price paid for
which was $35 per acre for 1,497 acres
and $30 for the balance. It had cost
up to January 31 last $41,839 for land
clearing and $16,236 for machinery.
More evidence of tlio lack of cooperation between the Land Settle-
meut Board and the department of
lands were disclosed this week. To
Mr. Jones' questions as to whether the
2,240,000 acres ot lands taken over by
the province under thc Soldiers' Homestead Act passed by the lato government ln 1916 and designed for soldier
settlement purposes, had been turned
over to the Land Settlement Board,
Hon. Mr. Pattulo, minister of lands,
replied that "the records are open to
the board." Mr. Jones refused to accept
such au answer declaring It was an
Improper one, and his appeal to Mr.
Speaker produced results, the latter
ruling that the minister must answer
"yes," or "no."
This incident Is only one of many
which is confirmatory of tlie fact that
the two departments are not working
in harmony. The while over 2,000,000
acres of land are being held by the
land department, lands intended for
soldier settlement, the board has beeu
buying thousands of acres in many
sections spending thereon some $858,-
000 of the public moneys.

Special Correspondence.
Victoria, March 19.—Petulence seldom displayed in the House by a minister was shown by Attorney-General
Farris this week when for the third
time he expressed his "resentment at
what, he termed, were the petty tnd
annoying tactics of the opposition in
seeking to throw discredit upon Dr.
Baker, chairman ot the Game Conservation Board. The opposition, in the
public accounts committee, have been
demanding particulars of accounts put
tn by Dr. Baker who, while ho receives
no salary as chairman, ls granted hia
travelling expenses and, in addition.
Is placed upon the same basis as
ministers of the government, being
given $10 per diem.for hotel and other
personal outlays. Because the opposi- -
Hon demanded particulars of a bill
for $555 charged by Dr. Baker for a
trip to Ottawa last fall, details of
certain telephone charges which appeared to be charged up against Hie
government, and information as to
dental work done by hlm for various
public Institutions such ss the Workmen's Compensation Board and the
Boys' Industrial Home, Hon. Mr. Farris declared an effort was being made
to force the doctor to resign aud he j
appeared to feel that because the doctor was receiving no salary he should
thereby be above criticism. The jutor-
ney-general's eulogy of Baker and of
Ills public spirit in giving his rervlces
free appeared somewhat overdone. But
liis peevishness was patent.
Dignity was thrown to the winds
when, on Wednesday, the attorney-
general declared that Mr. Pooley's lotions In the public accounts committee
in delving Into the Baker accounts had
heen "so small, so miserably mean,"
that he as head of' the game administration of the province, would see to
it that that member's application for
a permit to trap quail, one which had
been refused by the Game Board ond
to secure which Mr. Pooley had applied to the minister over tlie head of
the hoard, was refused. In thc past
Mr. Pooley, who is a keen gamo enthusiast, has secured such permits, his
idea being to take the quail lo other
parts of Southern Vancouver Island
and release them, thus Improving Ihe
stock. Now, because be has dared to
give Dr. Baker's accounts the once
over, he is to be disciplined by the attorney-general.
It developed 111 the public accounts
committee that the comptroller-general had occasion to complain of the
manner In which Dr. Baker put In his
accounts and that the deputy attorney-
general had replied that the doctor
was not to be considered as a mere
civil sorvant but that ills charges com •
plained of should be promptly paid.
Mr. Bowser suggested that he had
known the doctor for a long time and
was convinced his accounts required
cloBe scrutiny, a statement which
greatly incensed the attorney-general,
who retorted that of the two he believed Mr. Bowser's accounts could the
better be investigated. It has now got
to the stage where the opposition,

Advance Spring
Styles in Millinery
THERE arrived at our store this week a«consignment of SPRING MILLINERY of Advance Styles, which are moderately priced- If yon are
fortunate to get one of these hats you will have reason to congratulate
yourself. They exemplify Rideout millinery and show how smartness, good
style and reasonable pricing have been made to cohere. Something different,
something chic; every hat a model of striking distinction and wonderfully
becoming to some type of face. These hats arc in the new spring colors,
and those who are lucky enough to get them will make a smart saving as
well as secure as charming, as stylish and as exquisite millinery as it is possible to conceive at the price. Examine them early and choose.

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.

FIREMEN'S MASQUERADE BALL
DRAWS GOOD-SIZED CROWD
Annual Event of thc City Fire Fighters Was Fairly Well Attended,
But thc Prevalence of Illness and the Fear of Contagion Kept
Many Away—Coterie of Local Comedians Kept the Audience
in the Best of Good Humor a t.l Added Much to the Entertainment-—Splendid Music Had Much to Do With the Success.
The prevalence of illness among those who usually patronize
such events, and the fear of contagion militated to a great degree
against the masquerade ball on St. Patrick's night, the annual
event of the Cumberland Volunteer Fire Brigade. Yet despite
the drawbacks the all air may be termed a success, for while there
was not present the usual numb r of dancers and spectators, the
hall was comfortably filled, and Hi ire was very little vacant room
on thejloor when the music was going. This latter may be said
to have probably done more to make the evening a successful one
and the dancing most enjoyable, Cor it was of about the best brand
lo which the devotees of Terpischore have been treated for many
a day.
The committee in charge of affairs was also assiduous in theii
efforts to look after the comforts and conveniences of their guests,
and the many eulogistic referent es to the excellent arrangements
must have convinced them that their efforts were not in vain. This
committee was composed of the deputy chief, Aid. Charles Parnham, Mr. J. H. Cameron, Mr. Nunns, Mr. Thomson, Mr. Charles
Grant. Mr. Fred Dallos and Mf. H. Conrod.
Must amusement was occasioned by a group of local comedians
masquerading as negroes, their : ntics causing rounds of laughter
throughout the evening. It ma; be said, however, that the cos^
tumes were not of the usual high order, the majority of the masquers appearing to havo gone in for the comic characters. This
made the task of judging a difficult one, there being so many of
almost equal merit. The judge : were Mr. Charles Graham, Mr.
Hawkins and Mr. W. II. Youhill, their awards being as follows:
Prize waltz—Mr. W. Shearer and Mrs. McNulty.
Best dressed lady—Mrs. Tom Hanney.
Best dressed gentleman—Mr. P. McNiven.
Best national character, lady--Mrs. A. Kay of Union Bay.
Best sustained character, gentleman—Mr. V. Dalby.
Best advertisement—Mrs. Shouldice,
Best comic group—Mr- D. Bannerman, Mr. D. Hunden, Mr
D. McNiven,
Best hobo—Mr. R. Brown.
Best comic gentleman—Mr, J. G. Lockhart.
Best comic lady—Mrs. J. Hill.
Best clown—Mr. Fraser Watson.
Best Irish chacacter, lady or gentleman—Mrs. McNulty.
The judges deciding that there was no gentleman's costume
representing a national character, the prize for that event was
awarded as a special to three members of the fire brigade who put
on an amusing exhibition with a miniature hose cart.
