THE DIFFICULTIES OF A BUSINESS
GOVERNMENT
The Store Window
LAST week in dealing with the dilemma of the Attorney-General, caught between thc Scylla of public
duty and the Charybdis of his private emotions or
interests, the inevitable outcome of the dilemma was illustrated by the manner in which the tide of public* opinion had set dead against the course pursued by the present
Premier and Attorney-General, the Honorable VV, J. Bowser, lie announced, iu donning tin- mantle which fell from
thc shoulders nf Sir Richard McBride, that lu- would form
a business government, and in order in iln sn appointed
Mr. Tisdall as Minister nf Public Works, .Mr. Flumerfelt

the "dummy dolls in Mr. Bowser's store windows. They
were discovered among the usual surplus stock carried by
all goveromenJ stores, but brushed up ami adorned with
fashionable suitings properly labelled, they made an attractive appearance. '
Between the two windows, debonair and spnue in bis
new clothes, Mr. Bowser stood himself beneath tin- sign,
"THIS STORE UNDER ENTIRELY NEW MANAGEMENT." Inside at the cashier's desk, Mr. Flumerfelt was
distinctly visible hard at wnrk nn the books. Mr. Manson
was merged with the shadows in the background as floor
walker, while Messrs. Ross and Taylor presided over the
counters nf I.ami and Education respectively. The three
last were not meant as attractions, they wen- merely the
necessary adjuncts in the business nf Mc. Bowser's tun

sum as a basis of business, and enables advances to be
made out of ordinary revenue, why start with $1,000,000
except to flourish it in the face of tbe electorate?
Judging liy the experience of the past, whatever sum
'is borrowed will be the sum lent, as naturally every farmer
in the country will wain a loan. The whole intention of
the framers of ihe bill was to build up an agricultural
credit  system  gradually,  and  to  make  tbe  administration

the formation of that government whether it is called

Is It Good Business?
According to current report���-though it must be admit
ted rumor hath many lying tongues���at least five of the
ships were supposed to be built by the Canadian and
Puget Sound Lumber Co., revived from liquidation for the
se. Why in. one knew unless it was in stimulate
terest nf the early Victorians in the history of the
old Sayward Mills. Bul had this business government
carefully analysed the plans and specifications of these
ships, together with the complete and detailed csimates as
to cost and delivery of such parts as could not be manufactured iu British Columbia? It is not very difficult to
build wooden ships. Any of the lumber mills might undertake such a job. Wallace's shipyards iu North Vancouver or Yarrow's in Esquimalt are professional shipbuilders and have experienced men on the payroll, who
presumably could construct steel or wooden ships and put
such engines as are necessary in place. Hut the real problem is what to do with the ships when they are built.
They must eventually come into competition with the
world's tonnage and to meet that competition must bc
charcred at competitive rates. According lo all estimates
of shipping experts, there will be a very large tonnage
available when the war is over, and it is hardly doubtful
that the German ships interned in all the ports of the
world will be considered as part of an indemnity, and
bc credited against the ships sunk by German submarines.
Before the war there was more tonnage available than
freight. Ships have been built steadily during thc war.
Has the business government really fully considered the
situation or has it meredy plunged blindly in answer to
a vociferous demand from those who believe that all that
is necessary to export lumber is to supply ships to carry
it. If so, surely it is a matter for the lumber men to decide. If they will not eo-operale to build the ships
themselves, can it be good business for the people of British Columbia to build them?
Agricultural Credits Bill
There is no doubt that thc Agricultural Credits Bill is
a very excellent bill and should bc put in force as soon as
possible. The "business government" proposes to borrow $1,000,000 and start operations. But, it cannot under
present circumstances borrow that money except at something over six per cent, unless it gives a very considerable
discount on the par value of thc bonds. The experience of
other countries proves that a farmer should not pay more
than 5 \-2 per cent, for loans. If the government can
borrow money at six per cent it will have to charge tbe
farmer seven per cent. Mr. Bowser spoke very feelingly
of thc difficulties of borrowing and drew  a  fine picture

veritable debauch of patronage.    In  Hritish Columbia there
is  an  exceedingly  large  independent  vote  which  may   be
termed   sentimentally   Conservative.     It   was   this   vote
which overwhelmed Messrs. Tisdall and Flumerfelt.    The
mistake usually made by the politicians is to ignore  the
independent vote because it is not organized, never attends
a ward  meeting, never discusses  local  politics  in  public,
but  goes  about  its  own  business   until  such  time  as   it
chooses to make its power felt.    Because it is silent the
politicians seem to think it does not exist.    Yet the Liberals   should  have   learnt   their   lesson   in   Ihe   past   few-
years.    They were swept out of existence as far as representation in the Provincial and Federal house was concerned  almost  entirely  on  account  of  patronage.     It   is
no use being blind to this silent power.    It is very real
and if it is any information to Mr. Bowser, it intensely resents being treated as  if  it  were  composed of a  lot  of
children.    The  very  fact that  it  does  not  squall  should
warn the politicians.    It is this silent vote which controls
thc fate of both parties.    It is this silent vote which ardently desires a  business government,  simply because  it
is composed very largely of the real business activities of
the  province,    lias the  provincial  Liberal party a  really
business programme?   It is useless to bc merely destructive.    The triumph of the bye-elections should he followed
by a very careful and very temperate review of business

words: "SLINGSBY CHANGELING BROUGHT INTO COURT.'
"Xo sooner did the paper reach the street that afternoon than Mr. Martin called me upon the telephone. 'I
see,' he said, 'the Slingsby child is referred to in this evening's issue as being a changeling. In so stating the
EVENING JOURNAL lays itself liable to heavy costs.
I see no reason why this paper should step in to decide
the merits of a case which is most properly before the
courts of England.    More care must be taken in  future.'
" 'But, Mr. Martin, the fault must lie with the press associations. The Associated Press also refers to the Slingsby changeling.' I protested.
" 'The Associated Press and the other associations have
im more right than we have to decide a case which is
now being considered by competent judges in England,'
were thc parting words of Mr. Martin."

IT IS TO BE hoped that the gentlemen concerned in the
City Hall horse deal will be" able to come out with honor.

REVIEW OF THE WEEK
Eh
(X.B.���As lhe "Saturday Chinook" rocs to press on a
Friday morning this review does not pretend to be quite
up-to-date. It is merely a general reminder of events
which  have  happened during the  past  seven  days).
�� * ��
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8.���The Germans in their
attack on Verdun were able to chronicle the seizure of the
Corbeaux Woods, and Hill 265. Since the war began hills
have apparently lost their names and become mere ciphers. Hill 265 is said to have cost Germany over 20,000
men. This was the seventeenth day of the battle and the
Germans again failed to make any definite impression on
the real defences. There was a rumor of a revolution in
Constantinople, but there was no report regarding the
immediate entrance of Roumania or Greece into the war,
which made the day different to others.
�� * *
In the British House of Commons a preliminary discussion of the possibility of a Commercial Entente between
the Allies brought into practical politics a matter of tremendous import to our whole future. Premier Hughes of
Australia was present at a cabinet meeting. Mr. Churchill's speech on naval matters caused a sensation.

In the Provincial Legislature, Mr. Ernest Miller and

instead of borrowing money to establish a shipbuilding
industry as proposed.

The German attack  on  Verdun  seems In be  slackening

The first of three  Royal Commissions tn inquire int"
the Saskatchewan bribery charges began ils sittings. The
Liberals are accused of accepting bribes and they in their
tni n accuse the Hon, Robert Rogers. Minister of Public
Works iu Premier Borden's cabinet, and political mani-
pulalor in chief to the Conservative party, nf giving bribes.
The question is has Bob Rogers thrown a boomerang?
i
The Hon. W. R, Koss. Premier Bowser's mosl faithful
henchman, and minister ol such lauds as are left to the
province, made his annual contribution lo the mutual admiration society which sits in Victoria. Ile did not like
the presence nf Liberals sn asked them several questions.
Fancy Mr. Ross asking questions. His line is reading
from reports of his department.

The Central Fanners' Institute closed its sessions at
Victoria by passing a resolution in favor of more independence of the government. Husiness tint politics was

SUNDAY, MARCH 12.���Day of Rest rudely disturbed

Not such a bad day despite the date, except for Mrs.
Slingsby, who lost her case.
TUESDAY, MARCH 14.���Premier Bowser agreed to
drop all contentious matters and give plenty of time for
investigation into anything Ihe Liberals desired tn investigate.
Maximilian    Harden   says   Germany   must    have   peace
because she is victorious, but cannot digest the victories.
The slaughter at Verdun grows greater every hour. The
Germans hurl men against the French who are mowing
litem down by thousands. There is said lo be rioting iu
Germany over the losses, but the Kaiser is reported t>>
have once more come In view lhe holocaust and sent hrs
best tmops to their death.    Ile reminds one nf Vcro.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15.���Premier Bowser withdraws his offer regarding contentious legislation, Xo one
seems to know whether the provincial li"ttse has reallv
any right to be sitting. The conception of Mr. Ilowser
as Napoleon is being succeeded by a picture of Micawber
drawn by himself. He is obviously twisting and turning,
trying  to lead the opposition  into a hole.
German infantry attacks on Verdun were not sn heavy
today.    Lack of men given as the reason.
*  +  *
Tbe examination of J. S. Malsmi. proprietor nf the
"Colonist" at Victoria, proved that if he is nol a newspaperman he at least has some idea of what is due In
him. The funny part is that the government agreed with
his own point of view about himself.
Till*. CONSIDERATION SHOWN by certain people on
the City Council for the feelings of the Great Northern
Railway would kail one lo think thai Jim Hill is not
averse at times to playing the game so popular with Mackenzie antl Mann.
I * * *
AS EVIDENCE OF good faith Mackenzie and Mann,
when concluding the False Creek deal, put up a bond for
a million and a hall dollars. This bond, being guaranteed
by Mackenzie and Mann Limited and the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company, can scarcely be considered as a very strong guarantee lhal the Mackenzie and
Mann organization hope t" carry out any of their agreements.
Till'. GREAT NORTHERN wanted P. put up a $200,000
station building. The agreement calls for a $500,000 building. Some of the aldermen were willing to let the Great
Northern off with the $200,000 proposal. Some of our
aldermen would let Mill interests liquidate their indebtedness to Vancouver at fifty cents on the dollar!'
IT'S HIGH TIME that lhe people of Hritish Columbia
awa1 ened to (he railway promoter menace. This is no
time lo take mi deals which would be regarded as a trifle
coarse even back in 1909.
MR.   "NICHQLL" THOMPSON
Thc new President of the Vancouver Board of Trade is a good Liberal, but he will not bring politics into
Board of Trade affairs���except as "rebuttal" of any attempts made to do so by indiscreet Tories. There have been
such indiscretions.
Mr. Nicholas Thompson, he is always spoken of as'*Xieholl," is a hard-headed', sturdy, virile son of Northumberland. He was born at Woodbury in 1853, bis father was a farmer, a man of responsibility, who farmed the
great estates of the Duke of Northumberland. At sixteen years of age, young Nicholas was put to the engineering
profession, marine engineering and shipbuilding, and so well fitted for this progressive city, which still retains an
ambition to be "the Liverpool of the Pacific."
To summarise the early days of his career, he won distinction and confidence, and as a marine engineer went
to China, the East and West Indies, to Africa, where on the Congo he struck up friendly relations with the great
explorer, Henry M. Stanley, the man who "found Livingstone." He worked between Montreal and the Gulf Ports
and then, in 1888, he came to Vancouver, entering at once into the life of the busy little village so soon to develop
into a great city.
He was one of the founders of Evans. Coleman and Evans, was associated with that firm for some years, and
then founded the engineering firm of X. Thompson and Company. In latter years he* has represented a great
Sheffield Steel and Iron Company.
Mr. "Nicholl" Thompson has been ��� still is, a man of many and varied activities. He has always been actively
identified with any movement for Vancouver's betterment and progress. He has been prominent in Liberal politics,
and in Masonic circles. He has been active iu the chamber of mines, in the industrial bureau, and in club life. He
is public-spirited, loyal, energetic and popular with all sorts and conditions of men, even with those of another
faith. At Jarrow-on-Tyne he was married to a bonuie Scotswoman, and it can be said to their credit that Mr.
and Mrs. Thompson have had the true pioneer spirit, growing with the growth of British Columbia and contributing greatly to its pleasure and development.

and disregard of the public in general. Out trails an

and mily God and Pal Welch can (ell us when the ne\i
P. G. & E, train will make its appearance.
We are not fools enough In expect Welch and hi-
crowd to fulfill any obligation they owe In the people of
this district. 'There are too many victims of their dis
honest methods scattered along the right of way. It
would be difficult to travel a mile in this country without
finding some one who had not been swindled by Welch
or bis underlings. We don't expect to get justice out of
that gang any more than one might expect to find perfume in a sewer; but if the people of British Columbia are
not all palsied or crippled in the head, there ought to
he some way to force them into semi-honest activity.   The
tlay of "the public be  -" is one that ought to pass iu
civilized countries.
It is by and through the credit of the honest people of
British Columbia that a horde of grafters have been enabled to build tbis flimsy excuse for a railroad. We were
compelled to stand behind a venture that bids fair to reck
with a rottenness hitherto unknown in the game of Canadian grab. They owe us something. We don't expect
fair or honest treatment; but they ought to show us as
much consideration as a Digger Indian shows a mangy
���log-
Let us cite an incident which came under my own observation; there is an Indian at D'Arcy by the name of
Johnny Joe. He is poor and ignorant. The P. G.E.
outfit run the grade through his little plot of ground on
the reservation. He received a small amount of the purchase price down. They still owe him the balance. They
hired him to get out cribbing and after laboring two
months on Lake Anderson, he delivered an amount for
which they agreed to pay him fifty dollars. He was arrested four months ago at thc instigation of P. G. E. officials on the charge of stealing a stove and served three
months at hard labor. When his term was almost over it
was discovered that the stove he was charged with stealing hadn't been stolen. The railroad company still owes
him for his land, still owes him fifty dollars for cribbing
This is only one story out of a thousand.
Of course these comments arc aside from the political
aspect of the P. G. & E. question. It is the same old
tale that began with the first of the big railways. It begins
with sauvc and patronizing promises and ends with independence, pillage, and a total disregard of all human
rights and considerations; save those of the grafters
themselves.
So wc are waiting up here at Lillooet. waiting for the
Government to pay up on thc bonds and take over the
two streaks of rust that wouldn't past muster in Gehenna
for a coyote trail.

FAITH and WORKS
The law forbids the sale of liquor and cigarettes
to minors, but it does not restrain newspapers from going into respectable homes and soliciting the patronage of the boys and girls with
flaring and alluring advertisements.
Careful firesides must rely, therefore, upon newspapers that voluntarily banish liquor and cigarettes, those great
enemies of youthful strength and purity, from their columns.
In the campaign for saloonless state it is vital that
the forces of temperance cast the entire weight of their influence
against the wets.
Their subscription order for a newspaper is a vote
for or against liquor, according as the advertising columns of that
newspaper are for or against liquor.
The Saturday Chinook is against the selling and
distributing of liquor'and cigarettes to minors through its advertising
columns.
For true temperance should begin at home and
with the Home Newspaper.
Delivered at
your door for
10 cents a month.

The Saturday Chinook
Mrs. Margaret Mills of the Central
Depot of the Red Cross Society lias
received an interesting letter ol
thanks from Colonel Victor Odium
of the 7th battalion. On January 22
Mrs. Mills shipped a large case of
cigars to the Colonel to be distributed among the men in the trenches as
the gift from Mr. A. E. Tompkins of
this city. The letter, dated February
22. from Colonel Odium, tells nf the
appreciation of the men and they all
hope that mure patriotic citizens will
send them cigars.

that Shakespeare has not lost his mar
jic, "He was not of an age hut for
all  time."
Every year thousands from this
western continent visit the old church
at Stratford-un-Avon and look up at
the crude monument depicted here.
Shakespeare has only been understood in recent years. The researches
of Sir Sidney l.ee. of Dr. Wallace, an
American, and others, have proved
lhat he was not the dissolute strolling player some puritanical divines]
depicted him, but that he was "a
litizcn of credit and renown," a substantial burgess who took a warm in-
terest in the affairs of his native
town, and was distinguished by much
public spirit. Would that he were a-

sins! What would he have to say of

HONEST   JOHN   OLIVER
During the past week while history
was being made in the city of Victoria, one of the men present to back
up Mr. Brewster, M. A. Macdonald
and Parker Williams and John Place
in their heroic fight against the machine was John Oliver, of thc Delta.
The illustration above is a cartoon
of the genial representative of thc
common people from Delta division,
which appeared in a Vancouver paper during thc fight in 1909, when Sir
Richard McBride brought about the
temporary downfall of Mr. Oliver so
far as provincial affairs are concerned.
Mr. Oliver has fought against the
machine ever since that time, often
more or less a lone hand.
