Fifteenth Annual Meeting of Farmers' Institutes at Victoria���
Part Taken By Valley.
$1.00 A YEAR.
At the opening of the fifteenth
annual convention of Farmers' insti ai ies of the province on Monday
yat, iu Victoria, the president, Mr.
\V. B. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, gave an interesting address ou the agricultural conditions
in British Columbia during the past
jeai, which, he said, had on the
whole, beeu a satisfactory one to
fanners and fruit growerB.
The debutes on the resolutions
presented by the resolutions com-
uuttee alio formed a feature of the
tirsl 'ay's proceedings, and iu these
ulsi ussions many Fraser Valley
Uriuers took part.
.Mr. Scott's Address.
Mr. Scott, in the course of his address on agricultural conditions and
prouress, said that during t\e past
year crops of nearly all descriptions
tad been good, and the prices realized for nearly all farm products
showed a material advance on those
oi the previous year, this being
especially noticeable in the case of
fruit and vegetables. He said that
owing to unsuitable weather conditions during the shipping season
some damage bad been done to
small fruits, but that hay and grain
crops were exceptionally heavy
thr ,-liout the province and were
harvested in good condition. Owing
to ihe large crop and low prices of
1912 the acreage planted in pota-i
toes last year showed a material reduction with a consequent improve-i
ment in prices.
In  referring  to  the  labor  situa-
tion as regards agriculture, he said,
thai it showed an improvement over
previous years being more plentiful ]
with  prices  paid  showing  a  slight j
reduction.   He attributed this to the'
halt which has been called in land ;
speculation,    many    people    having
been driven    out   of   this means of
livelihood seeking work on the land, [
tr devoting their attention to inak-
Ing the soil productive.
-     Increasing Production.
Iu dealing with the progress of
agriculture ln the province he challenged the statement that there "had
teen lately a retrogade movement,
Baying that while production had de-
1 on farming lands contiguous
h iii-* large cities resulting from the
land speculation, rapid progress had
made In other parts of the
"Production is also materially to-
creasing," said Mr. Scott, "as will be
shown by the statistical information
which has veen collected by our
tuff by means of personal visits in the farmers throughout the
Hi referred briefly to the increasing interest among farmers
with regard to livestock, whi,ch he
called the basis of all successful
farming, urging that all farmers,
in matter how small their places,
should keep some stock.
"Specializing may be alright for
lhe right man but the average farm-
it will do far better along mixed
tunning lines."
He said that during the year nine
sales of pure bred stock Imported by
'In- government had been held In
' rent centres, the number of
head being 453 and that it was
' "lv due to the impossibility of securing further cattle that the sales

Tatlon to the efforts of thtj,govem-

Exhibition Muccesses.
Mr. Scott detailed at some length j
thi  successes of the Provincial gov-,
' mment In exhibitions, both In thej
Northwest provinces, In Chicago and*
'hroughout Great Britain, especially1

in concluding, Mr. Scott spoke of;

At Laduer last .Monday evening

Westminster post, who will make
the trip to Ladner by special boat.
After the Installation an entertainment will be given by the members
of the newly-organized lodge.
Improvements to Ferry Service Are
Asked���Request for Opening of
River Road Submitted.
As a result of the visit of the
Delta delegations which interviewed
the Provincial authorities on Monday last with regard to the betterment of the ferry service and the
opening of the river road, connecting Ladner with New Westminster,
it is confidently predicted that a
boat, capable of handling all traffic
without the aid of a scow, will be
placed on the route shortly and also
that the river road will be opened
and properly finished this coming

simultaneously. The facts as disclosed by the delegates were closely

They re-elected their officers and
directors yesterday with the following exceptions: Mr. Thomas Abriel
becomes vice-president. Mr. James
Rooke, of Grand Forks, succeeded
Mr. W. V. Somers on the executive..
On the directorate Mr. J. J. Thornton i#places Mr. J. A. Coatham for
the Lower Mainland (south of the
Fraser); Mr. A. J. Clarke succeeds
Mr. R. At. Palmer for the Lytton to

l�� replaced in tbe Kelowna district
by Mr. J. Reekie. Mr. R. M. Palmer,
who retains his seat on the executive,

Representative  Gathering.
Sir Richard recognized the need
of improvement to the existing ferry
service, and while not understanding that an absolutely new ferry-
would be put on, the delegates feel
confident that improvements will be
made to obviate the necessity of
carrying a scow alongside as at present. They also have reason to believe that an hourly service will be
established   when   summer   arrives.
A suggestion by Sir Richard that
the municipality take over the operation of the ferry was not enthusiastically received by the delegates and
the matter will not be pressed further, uilless the municipality through
the council, see fit to adopt the suggestion. During the discussion the
question of the amount necessary
for the establishing of a proper ferry
���ame up and was placed at $25,000.

l-'orly-l-'ive Resolutions.
The resolution committee presented their report on the resolutions
submitted to them from tbe various
institutes. Altogether 1811 resolutions were received. Many of these
cove-oi) the same subject and ln
the report submitted only forty-five
were   brought   forward.
The usual gist of correspondence
with the reading and passage of the
monthly accounts occupied the full
council in a routine session on Saturday last.
The meeting was a comparatively
short   one,   the   entire   proceedings
ending after about an  hour's time.
j Reeve Paterson  and the full board
qf councillors  attended.
The request of the W. C. T. U.,
who asked that a room In the basement of the municipal hall, which
they could fit up as a reading room,
be allowed them, while not actually
refused, the cierk was instructed to
inform them that no heat would be
available, but it seemed, no opposition would be forthcoming from the
board, if the ladies wished to heat
the room themselves.
The objection of John Morris, of
Strawberry Hill, regarding the imposition of wild land tax on his
property, was sustained by the council, and the clerk ordered to rectify
the mistake.
Mr. Geo. Dennis will be allowed
to proceed with the installation of
an underdrain across the Matthews
road, under the supervision of Road
Foreman Ormiston.
Clerk MoDairmid was authorized
to procure the necessary books and
supplies for the year, and the following accounts were approved: Fashioa

Local  Players   Delight  Large  Audience in the "Parson's Vacation"
���Proceeds   Hand-nine.
A capacity audience assembled in
the McNeely hall on Friday last to
witness the performance by the Laduer Dramatic Society of the "Parson's Vacation." The hearty congratulations of those present were
well earned for seldom have Ladner
people had the pleasure of watching
a comparatively large caste of
amateurs who were so uniformly
good, and who throughout the whole
length of a four-act comedy held the
attention of the entire audience from
front to back of the hall. This Is

individual and an ability on the

The flood is the worst in years,
and although the actual loss of life
or limb to cattle or animals is very
slight, the damage done to hay and
oats and to the land -is very hard
to accurately estimate, and in this
respect It is highly probable that
Westham Island farmers will be the
greatest sufferers, as are salt water,

Important Project.
"The project Is considered one of
prime Importance to the city of Vancouver and for that reason the Vancouver members were exceedingly
earnest In their efforts to induce
the minister to make a definite
promise that he would recommend
the construction of a new ferry. It
will be remembered that some time
ago a ferry service was Inaugurated
between the two points mentioned
following an agitation promoted by
Mr. C. E. Tisdall, M.L.A., and others,
with the Idea of having produce
from the Delta taken Into Vancouver ln as quick and economical a
way as possible, thus assisting ln
reducing the coBt of farm produce in
the Terminal City,
Already a Success.
This ferry, a rented boat and
hardly suitable for the requirements
of the situation, has been of good
service and the growing traffic has
demonstrated that the construction
of a large new boat would be a
step In the right direction,
Hon.   Mr.   Taylor   informed     the

Conservatives   tn     Convention   Give
Forma]  Endorsement  to Sir
Richard's Policies.
VICTORIA, Jan. 26.���Although
the second day of the convention of
the British Columbia Conservative
Association was not one whit less
enthusiastic than the preceding session, a large amount of routine business was transacted and the resolutions brought up by the various district associations were freely discussed by the delegates.
Of the 42 resolutions submitted
to the convention the majority were
referred to the executive committee for transmission to the responsible ministers of the cabinet dealing
with the matters incorporated.
Fourteen resolutions were brought
up on the floor of the convention
Knd    of this    number    eleven were
the establishment of a small body
of mounted men would go a long
way towards ridding the country of
lawlessness that periodically broke
out  in the unsettled districts.
In seconding the resolution, Major H. Matthews of Nicola, said
that he knew the attorney general
was about to introduce some plan
for the better policing of the unsettled districts and he hoped that
this plan would include the establishment of a  mounted force.
The resolution was carried without a dissenting voice.
Dower Act.
The next problem brought up was
the Dower Act. The resolution in
Its original form did not meet with
the approval of the delegates and
several amendments were offered on
the matter. Quite a considerable
period of time was occupied in the
discussion of the rules of procedure
in convention and explanations were

of the legislature was lost by an
overwhelming  majority.
Nanaimo Stxt Year.
When the question of the holding
of the next convention was brought
forward two places were submitted
for the consideration of the delegates, Nanaimo ami Kamloops. After the partisans of each location
had addressed the bouse, Mr. R. J.
Burde of Port Alberni, in a strong
address, urged that the delegates
should by unanimous vote agree to
assemble next year at Nanaimo. The
proposer of the invitation for the
next convention at Kamloops courteously agreed to withdraw his suggestion with the consent of his
seconder and without balloting the
convention unanimously decided on
holding the convention next November at Nanaimo.
Executive Council.
The personnel of the executive
council was made up as follows:
Messrs. H. Cleasby, Yale-Cariboo; J.
E. Merryfieid, Comox-Atlin; H.
Cutbbert, Victoria; A. J. Weeks,
Vancouver; J. H. Harvey, Nanaimo;
IX E. MacKenzie, New Westminster;
Thomas  McNeish,   Kootenay.
in submitting a resolution endorsing Sir Richard McBride, premier of British Columbia, Mr. J. J.
Miller of Vancouver said that such
a resolution'needed no introduction,
and the premier wns in no need of
formal endorsement, lor the great
reception which tie received the
previous day was. lie said, a sufficient guarantee of the esteem in
which he was held,
"There have been recently several
futile and puny efforts to besmirch
Ihe character of our premier, hut
this great convention gathered from
j*very corner of our province knows
���"well the wonderful accomplishments
lhat he has earned through during
his tenure of office,
"In spite of all the rumors of financial stringency and the croaking
of our Liberal friends that British
Columbia Is on the verge of bankruptcy, the newspapers this morning
give evidence of the confidence
which the peopli- of the Old Land
; ive in this province. We who
have stood by the premier for many
years know hls personal character
end when the time comes for us to
give expression to our confidence we
will show by the hallo: box the great j
esteem In which we hold him."
Mr. C. H. Corder of Summerland
seconded the resolution of confidence, which read as follows:
Confidence in Premier.
"That this convention places on
record its continued and unabated
confidence in the government of
British Columbia, so ably presided
over by the Premier, Sir Richard
Mr. C. Semlin, former premier of
the province, proposed a similar
\ote of confidence In the Right Hon.
R. I.. Borden, which was seconded
by Mr. R. L. Maltland of Vancouver
and carried.
Another resolution moved by Mr.
F. S. Logan of Vancouver, and seconded by Mr. J. A. Mellish of Vancouver, extended the sympathy of
the delegates to Sir James Whitney
in his Illness.
In Introducing a message of sym-
pathy to the family of Lord Strathcona, Cnptain Clive Phllllpps-Wollcy
said that Canada produced mnny
end greal crops, but of all the crops
her  harvest   nf  men   was    the  most
Telephone Lines.
Mr. lames Gill of Kamloops, in
urging that B recommendation be
mads to the government asking that
nld should bo given for the extension of the long distance telephone
lines throughout tho province, suld
hi know of no better means of open- |
Ing up lhe unsettled districts than
by the erection of lines of communication between tho centres of settled  communities,    The  resolution,
which   wus   seconded   by   Mr.   II    S
Cleasbj ot MerriU, wis carried.
Ti ������nqiiiiie Snnltni-ium.
in  urging thai    government  aid
should be given towards the work of
the   Tranqullle     Sanitarium,    Mr.
Charles Keith  of New Westminster
said M.v  It   was not  right that, the

government to aid this Institut ion.
Mounted Police Force.
Mr. John Redmond of Kamloops.
proposed a resolution urging on the
Provincial government the desirability of establishing a mounted police force. He said that a single
district of 300 square miles which
averaged about two families to a
mile, between Nicola nnd Kamloops,
had not seen a policeman since the
abolition of the poll tax, and  that
and  Mr.  W.  W.  Foster, M.P.P.,  in
the matter.
It was finally agreed that the
resolutions committee should reconsider tho motion which had been Introduced and they met the proposers
of the several amendments in consultation. The resolution as finally
drawn up, was proposed by Mr. J. J,
Miller of Vancouver, and seconded
by Air. A. C. MacMillan, who acted
for Mr. J. J. Dougan, who had been
called away on business. The resolution read as follows:
"That this association go on
record as being opposed to the
Dower Act as now in force and
recommend that pressure be brought
to bear on the legislature at Victoria to change the said law as soon
as possible so as to have the rights
of widows and orphans more fully
The proposal emanating from the
Nakusp Conservative Association
suggesting the imposition of a tax
on all adult' males in the province
who are not at present, paying school
or property taxes was carried by a
small   majority.
Mineral Claims.
A resolution was next brought
forward emanating from the Rossland Conservative Association with
regard to the public advertising and
submission to the highest bidder of
prospectors' claims.
"The law as it at present stands
Is an injustice," said Mr. Evans, "as
it takes away from the prospector
the fruits of his labors."
It was resolved that the Provincial government be urged to make
such provisions as would allow of
such forfeited mineral claims becoming available for beltfg acquired
by prospectors or others at a cost
equivalent to that of fulfilling a",
ordinary requirements of the Mineral Act up to and including crown-
granting, and to make provision for
arranging for deferred payments, so
as to make it practicable for prospectors to acquire such mining
properties," -.
Naval Question.
The navy question  brought  forth
a spirited speech from Captain Clive
"This is not a party measure, but
it Is the voice of all Canada. Citizens of thi3 Dominion are saying today: 'For God's .sake stop talking
and got in and do something.' As
an internal part of the empire this
Dominion must always rest in the
last resort on the British navy. We
tave slapped our bankers in the face
once, and apparently Mr. Borden
does not look for another rebuff until such time as conditions ln the
Senate are changed. British Columbia stands solid for the Borden
policy of Imperial defence."
The resolution asking Mr. Borden
to continue his efforts was seconded
by Colonel Eardley-Wllmot and accorded the honors of a standing
Naval Volunteers.
A resolution endorsing the naval
volunteer proposal, which was Introduced by Mr. W. Blakemore and
seconded by Mr. A. Sarglson, was
carried unanimously and the last
resolution submitted by the committee endorsing the policy <Jf the
government In the matter of public
works, and urging them to continue
their programme during the coming
year, which was submitted by Mr. E.
Jacobs and seconded by Mr. W.
Land, war also agreed to.
Before the adjournment was moved, Secretary Williamson rose and
nroposed a hearty voto of thanks to
the president of the association,
Mr. W. T. Shatford. Tho resolution was carried unanimously, the
entire audience rising to their feet
and cheering for several minutes,
concluding finally with an enthusiastic rendering of "He's a Jolly
Good  Follow."
After singing "God Save the
King.''  ihe    convention    adjourned.
having arranged to hold the next
session at Nanuimo during November.

would either have to do this or jsumed office. British Columbia

works which was being carried out j delegates, but simply sought what
from year to year and which was i*'1 fair and legitimate from the au-
instrumental in increasing the pros-   thorities  for  the  Dominion.      This
had been withheld until within the
last two years when the Borden administration, acting on the advice of
the solid seven from this province,
provided for British Columbia a pro
perty of the province. The whole
economic policy of the government
was based upon the idea of so
pruning and paring down the present taxation that the time would
come when all the revenue was derived directly from the natural resources.
In replying to those who have
:_._: aspersions on the financial stability of British Columbia, the premier said that ten and a half years
ago, when the present government
came into power the net debt of the
province was over eleven millions
and the revenue scarcely two millions. Today the revenue was over
ten millions while Provincial debt
was a little over eight millions.
Criticism had been directed at the
fact thnt it was deemed advisable
some weeks ago to secure $1,500,-
000 by the issue of treasury bills
on the London market.
Measure of Precaution.
This was purely a precautionary
measure and was by no means ne-
. essa-ry to maintain the financTal
balance. As a matter of fact, the
province now had a credit balance
in the bank of upwards of two millions. But the policy of the administration was to be prepared lest a
sudden call, brought about by disaster, or some such occurrence,
should eventuate.
One result of the treasury note
Issue upon which all could congratulate themselves was that it had
proved that at a time of world wide
stringency, the financial stability of
British Columbia was on a firm
and solid basis, in the amount of
money outstanding on land sales
the government possessed an immense asset. The arrears due the
province from this source were
now $9,664,582.62, and In townBlte
and suburban sales $3,133,753.92.
All this money was bearing interest
at six per cent, so that-the revenue
derived was of a very substantial
Time Inopportune.
The government did not consider
that at a time like the present It
would be advisable to call in this
money. Such a procedure would
inflict hardships which were unwarranted by the circumstances.
One of the most Interesting announcements made in the course of
Lis speech was t.o the effect that
the Provincial administration was
prepared to discuss ways and means
whereby lt. might be possible for the
legislature to do something that
would lead to a reduction In the
cost of living.
The premier said that while at
present this matter was under consideration by the Dominion authorities, lt was possible that some
remedy might lie in the hands of
the legislature and he hoped before
the present session was over that
the matter would be fully discussed.
Before concluding he foreshadowed some further railway legislation
during the present session and took
. ccaSlon to remark that the programme now being carried out here
exceeded in Its pretensions anything
hitherto attempted in any other
province of Canada, lt was well to
know that the work was progressing speedily and  successfully.

s-mpathy in connection with the
death of ex-Mayor Lee, of New Westminster, who had been president of

months, he announced, this covering
among other things, harbor facilities in preparation for the completion of the transcontinental and the
opening of the Panama Canal.
Oriental  Question.
Premier McBride said that he was
sorry progress had not been so
rapid with regard to the demands of
British Columbia for Oriental exclusion. While the Provincial Government believed in thr constitution
and in refraining from any action
which would be beyond its bounds,
I nevertheless the Conservatives of the
province were banded together to
leave nothing undone to conserve
this portion of the Kmpire for the
I white race. There was, no desire
to be offensive to the Japanese, Chinese or Hindus and the inhabitants
of the Oriental countries should feel
free to keep their own boundaries
shut against the whites.
"But wo have the duty placed
t-pon us of peopling -and governing
this country and we should be free
to choose the elements which will
make up the character of our population," he observed.
Dual   Responsibility.
He spoke of the cautious manner
in which the Provincial government
had felt forced to proceed because
of the fact that the lack of Liberal
opposition placed upon It a dual responsibility. Questions of great importance had been referred to commissions before policies were adopted.
He urged that the public-spirited
citizens of the province should Join

board of governors and faculty
would be filled with enthusiasm. The
university would open its doors in
September, 1915, he said. Good
reports had been received for the
year from the forestry, water and
fisheries departments as well as from
the agricultural branch ln which the
government had expended a large
"ii"i during th" past yeir, particularly In the Okanagan Valley in a
co-operative project which had apparently produced good results.
Coal Strike.
Turning to consideration of the
mining troubles on Vancouver Island, he commended Attorney-General Bowser for his prompt action
for preservation of law and order
among the strikers.
"The time has arrived for the
resignation or the destruction of
the government when lt does not
provide first of all for law and
order," he said. "While no one deplores conditions more than members of tbe government, and wbile
nc one realizes better than we the
right of the workerB to strike, yet
tbey  must  obey  the  laws,"
The Premier pointed out that ln
many cases press and pulpit had
united In placing the blame of the
whole disturbance upon his shoulders,
"1 nm rendy to take all the responsibility that Is mine," ho declared, "but these statements wore
manufactured mainly for political
purposes, nnd to assist the propaganda of the Liberal party."

opposition which had existed in the

The question of the ultimate location of th# ferry wharf slip was not
even mentioned at Victoria by the
delegation, and it seems unlikely
ihat any change will be made, but
in the event of a change being imperative it is a foregone conclusion
that a location just west'of the Lanning, Fawcett and Wilson store
would be preferable to one as fat-
down  the slough as Chinatown.

Mr. Neely (Humboldt) then rose
to move his amendment in regard to
free wheat. He prefaced the motion with a speech lasting about an
heur and twenty minutes, lt waB
apparent, he said, that despite the
bountiful crop in the west which
afforded an unusually large amount
of wheat for export that tho government had paid no attention whatever to the financial revolution
across the line by reason of which
a number of articles which Canada
has for export hud been placed on
the free list. By the Wilson tariff,
Canadian cattle are admitted duty
free to the United States with the
result, whether the government
likes it or not, tbat they nre being
compelled to see thousands of Canadian cuttle being shipped across
the border.
Mr. N'nely snld It was a matter of
regret that under the Wilson turlff

Regrets Poll Tax.
Dealing with the lumber industry
in the province, Mr. Foster took up
the question of taxation. He regretted that the poll tax had been
rescinded as it- was the only means
they had of making the transient
pay his share In the upkeep of the
country. While these were exempt
the lumber industry was bearing a
considerable burden, he said. The
boast was made that the industry
paid the largest proportion of taxes
of any industry in the province. He
ventured to say that the high rate
and uneven way In which the lumber industry had been taxed was responsible for the great proportion of
the loss of revenue to the government last year, as the people concerned could not stand such taxation during a period of financial
In  Praise of Delta.
Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, member for
Delta, then took up the discussion.
He opened with a reference to that
part of the address relating to municipalities and the agricultural interests therein. He pointed out that
the three munlclpalt.es comprising
the Delta riding were of tb" food-
producing class, and held a high
position as such In the province. He
referred briefly to the difficulties
that faced the early settlers In his
district and stated that by a syste'n
qf co-operation the lands had been
dyked and reclaimed and were now
as productive, if not more so, than
any in the province. He claimed
Lhat in a single season the 30,000
acres comprising the riding had
yielded as much ln produce as represented a valuation of $1,350,000.
Experimental Truck Farm.
"This municipality ls a model
farming section, and the Dominion
government would be well advised
should the Provincial Agricultural
Department induce them to spend
some of the Dominion aid to agriculture In British Columbia by establishing nn experimental truck
farm so that the wants of tho adjacent cities could be met," snld Mr.

Member    for Vancouver Commends
Policy of Maintaining Industry
for the  White  Races.
VICTORIA, Jan. 29.���The debate
on lhe reply to the address to the
throne was continued at yesterday's
���session  or' the legislature.
Mr. C L. Tisdall, who was the
iirst speaker, condemned the Issue
of statements emanating from Hon.
Mr. Lemieux as to the amount of
unemployment existing in Vancouver nud said that although there had
beeu some depression in tbe building trade, the returns of the mercantile houses showed very little
diminution of business during the
past year.
In dealing with the prosperity of
the Eraser valley nud the general
improvement in tlie agricultural industry, Mr. Tisdall **uoted figures to
show the great Increase in the fruit
industry of recent years and predicted that with the opening of the railroad lines now under construction
tliis advance would be even more
Growth of Dry Farming.
Mr. Shaw of Kamloops, who followed 'he member for Vancouver,
gave some interesting statistics of
tlie progress made in dry farming
during iln- past year, telling the
house that within the last twelve
months more than 250,000 bushels
of grain and 1000 tons of hay that
had been grown in this arid belt had
been shipped to Western markets.
Relieves  in  Moderation.
Mr. C. E. Tisdall, member for
Vancouver, continued the debate.
He prefaced his remarks by saying
that when the province was experiencing a period of remarkable
prosperity, he refrained from expressing too much optimism, and he
thought that now, when the period
of depression existed in the province, it was only right and proper
that he should discountenance the
unwarranted pessimism that appeared to be the principal slock-in-trade
of a number of people.
Not More Than 3000.
He criticized the statements made
on the floor of the House of Commons :i! Ottawa by the Hon. Mr.
Lemieux to the effect that there
were 17.000 unemployed in the city
of Vancouver, and pointed out that
as there wero only 28,000 names on
the voterB' list, it was scarcely likely that 17,000 male adults were unemployed. As a matter of fact, he
was satisfied from his personal observation and investigation that 2,-
000 unemployed was much nearer
the mark.
Deep Sea Fishing.
The question of deep sea fishing
engaged the attention of. the mem-
rer for Vancouver, who stated that
the industry hnd lieen expanding
rapidly, although little notice had
been taken of i> officially, lie believed thai there were great possibilities in the deep sea fishing on
the West Coast and as it was well-
known thai there was an almost
limitless market for such produce,
he considered that it would he a
wise policy for the government to
give special attention to the <mcs-
tion of developing this wonderful
assel or the province.
The herring fishing also was well
worth  linking after,  lie said. In
every inlet of Ihe Coast there is a
plentiful Bupply of this fish for ail,
and as vel the business has heen
practically unexplolted.
Appreciation or Policy.
He expressed his appreciation of
the government's policy in regard to
maintaining the fishing industry
for the white people of the country.
In regard to other markets for
British Columbia fish he quoted
from the Daily Telegraph, London,
to the effect that a consignment of
British Columbia flsh had met with
a ready demand and there was thr
certainty of n good trade in the
���Mother Lund immediately the Industry here was In a position to
handle it and' supply the demand.

,' Municipal \v\_
Mr. Tlsdnll_ welcomed the announcement that the government intended to bring down n comprehensive Municipal Clauses Act, and In
this connection he suggested that
provision should be made for the
government to have some authority
to supervise the borrowing powers
of the municipalities not only 111 (he

said, had legislation of 'thai son,

Trust Company, who is now serving
a term in the penitentiary, will be
produced in the Vancouver courts
next week to give evidence in the
action of Mutrie Brothers, of Vernon, who nre applying to cancel a

(From The British Columbian.)
Two resolutions connected with
the Vancouver Island coal strike
troubles and subsequent trials were
passed by the B. C. Federation of
Labor at its session this morning.
One of these demanded resident physicians for the provincial prisons
and instanced the facts surrounding
the death of young Mairs at the
Burnaby prison farm, while the other
criticized the attitude on the
bench of Mr. Justice Morrison and
Uudge Howay, 'arranging for the
appointment of a committee to consult with the lawyers for the defence with a view to framing charges
against both judges and forwarding
them to the Minister of Justice, the
members of parliament for New
Westminster, and Vancouver, and
others. The resolution declared Its
object to be the impeachment of the
two jurists.
The resolution regarding the
medical inspection of prisons read
as follows:
"Whereas, one miner has already
died while an inmate of the provincial jail and as others are in a
precarious state because of lack of
proper medical attention and food;
"And whereas we are credibly informed that one of the prisoners
now awaiting trial, Louis Neuan-
thal, ls at present in a deplorable
physical condition, in startling contrast with the robust physical health
he enjoyed at the time of his arrest;
and whereas we find that in the
Okalla prison farm there are confined 209 prisoners, and that no
medical practitioner is resident at
any jail in the province thus depriving those Incarcerated therein of
competent   medical   attendance;
"Be it resolved, that this fourth
annual convention of the B. C. Federation of Labor demands of the attorney-general of British Columbia
that immediate steps be taken to
provide competent and regular medical examination of all prisoners now
in custody, whether sentenced or
awaiting trial or sentence, and that
those who are showing symptoms
���of failing health be immediately released where in the power of the
attorney-general, and where they
have passed to the control of the

Motion for stated case in appeal
from the conviction of Joseph Angelo, one of the Extension miners
convicted of charges growing out
of the Vancouver Island strike riots,
was heard on Monday by Mr. Justice Morrison, and refused on all
points presented. The application
was made by Messrs. Bird and Leigh-
ton for the defence, while the Crown
was represented by Mr. A. Dunbar
Taylor,  K.C.
The first point presented was the
reading of the Hannay deposition,
when proof had not been offered
that the witness was not within the
jurisdiction of the court. The Crown
cited a case where it was held that
a reasonable inference only woe necessary. The court agreed. Other
points grew out of the court's charge
to the jury, in which lt was contended that the court had erred in
referring to the failure of the accused to go into the witness box.
The Crown cited several cases where
such failure was referred to by the
court where the onus had shifted to
the prisoner, and such reference was

points which they desired to state

these points.

LONDON, Jan. 29.���The irritation, not to say anger, of the La-
borites against the government because of the deportation of the
South African labor leaders, grows
deeper hour by hour. There is no
doubt that the parliamentary party
will be compelled to exercise their
threat of withdrawal of suppqrt
from the Asquith government if It
fails to take any action ln regard to
the deportations from South Africa.
It is hardly possible to exaggerate
the effect of the deportations on the
trades unionists here. A big campaign Is promised on the arrlvai of
the deportees, who will be sent
through the country, should they
prove solid men, and not firebrands
of the Larkln order, and will truly-
light a fiery cross with results that
cannot now be foreseen.
