If th" by-electlon  In Vancouver wns
a hard fought contest, it  looks   now
as il the flghl t Ing at the end    of
this week In Victoria would bo an
even more bitter battle, The third
by election In the series will occur
there to day, when Hon. A. 0.
i- - met lelt. minUt er of ttnar.ce, will
bi opposed by H, C, Brewster, Liber
,1 M iib-r.
There    are    Liberals In Revelstoko
who can read nothing OUt nf Saturday's result except an overwhelming
defeat of the government at the coming genera]  election  ln  May.
On tbe nt her hand, the more care
fui leaders of the opposition admit
that   Vancouver   has   been   the   hotbed
of discontent at the government and
that the Dominion Trust scandal and
other campaign cries will not be
strong election arguments outside
this city.

In premier Bowser's statement
which is reproduced here it will b<
seen that pttblic statements madt
with regard; to corrupt government
will have to be proved by Mr. Macdonald.   Premier  Bowser  suys:

been occupied in listening to tbo various arguments advanced by the three
political parties having candidates in
the Held In the bye-election for members of the provincial house, Hon.
Lome A. Cumi^bell, Minister of Mines
in the cabinet of Premier Rowser,
Conservative candidate; William D,
Wilison, Mayor of Rossland, Liberal
candidate, and Wallace W. Lefeaux,
candidate of the Socialists, conducting a most vigorous campaign, says
lhe Rossland Dull}  Miner.
it     cannot  be suid that the people
were not fully advised us to the Important matters confronting them in
the contest, for nothing of a nature
bearing upon the various phases ol
the Campaign, was overlooked by any
uf the speakers,
The     Liberal     candidate, although
handicapped in not being able tn  e>.i-
vance     any argument »s to why     he
should   be   returned   inste.nl  of  bis   Op-
ponont, Mr. Campbell, did   not   lack
ill not having someone to put. forward his claims, for lie did, and Mr.

Mr. Wilison throughout the entire
contest, being tlle firsl: speaker to address an audience in the Golden City
at the opening of the campaign, put

The Dailj Miner feels secure in the

Now look for the papers that commented so severely on Premier Dowser's deserting Vnncouver to run in
Kamloops and thus imposing upon
Mr. J. p, Shaw, the regular candidate to apologise. The papers that
started the story without any foundation und the papers that so eagerly
grabbed up the statements made for
the purpose of discrediting Mr, Bowser and placing Mr. Shaw in a poor
light will pass up the entire matter

we havc   accomplished     this     at
On Tuesday  night the volley    ball
games    at the V were of thc highest
order, and the one between the Government and the Undertakers was certainly  thrilling  all  the  way  through.
The     Government     lineup     wur the
strongest     tbat     they have ever had
and they realised thnt if ever     there
was to be a game taken from    ie yet
undefeated Undertakers it was up to
them to do  tbe winning.   The     first
game was rather a disappointment to
t.he government rooters the Undertnk-
i rs winning by  a score of 21      to 13. I
The     second pa me was much brighter '
foi  the Government us they had   the
winning jioint on their side tbis time, !
the sere  being  2.   to  hi.    The     third
| rarne was said by  many of the     on-'
I lookers to be the best game that has j
| been  played   this  year,  even     better
than the big game between the married      men and the single men.     The
Government led oil with a nice little1
; score     in    their favor  but it  wasn't
lone   before      tbe   Undertakers      were
right     on  their heels  and  thus     the
BCOl    stayed all through the game. It
looked as if the Government were go
ing to win right up to the Inst    and
with  the score banning at 20-20     for
several serves the excitement was intense.   The Undertakers ran up     the
last two or three points in their usu
nl  fine form that they always     snve
lor  the bitter  end  and  registered    the
final    nnd winning point.   It was     b
hotly contested game and the Undertakers     certainly deserve to  win   the   , . —_—	
league if they  are able to trim   such
trams as the team which the Govern- l
ment lined up to meet them.
