The McBride government bus decided  to  appeal   to  the country  for     en
dorsatlon and In doing so it will offer  its  past, record      for examination
and  its  future  policy   for approval.
On its past record it stands on
solid ground, it found the province
bankrupt; It rescued its credit from
the mire and placed it high in the
estimation of the money markets of
the world, Through good and bad
times thu government has pursued a
steady policy of development. Rail-
Ways have leen built, roads constructed, the country opened, industries developed, public works of
all kiuds undertaken, agriculture and
education assisted. It bus been a
strong government and an ul.le one.
Between now and the day of elec
tion tbc premier wil no doubt define the details of his proposals for
the future, hut the a ts of last session give an Idea of much thnt is
proposed. The agricultural act will
aflord a further great stimulus to an
industry  which,  while  yet in  its     in
fancy, is destined to bo a fundamental source of the province's prosperity.,
A workmen's compensation act huB
has been .introduced and if the government is returned will be pluced on
the statute book next session. The
railway policy, which has already
done so much for the province, is.to
bc continued, development     will      be
I fostered and other, aggressive policies
The present is nn especiufly critical
period in the history of the province.
The government has proved its abil
|ity to grapple with difficulties and
bas        (given        evidence of      its
realization      of        the      necessities
'thut        now confront British
Columbia. Never was the adage tbat
horses should not be swapped while
crossing a stream more applicable,
Anyone who imagines that the
lumber industry of British Columbia
bus anything to hope for from the
Liberal party of Canada would do
well to read the speech of Hon.
Frank Oliver made during the budget debate at Ottawa.
Mr. Oliver, who was minister ol
the interior in the Lnuricr government, is one of Sir Wilfrid's thief
advisers und the spokesman of lhe
Liberal party for the west, and in
his speech he defines very clearly tbe
attitude of the Liberal leaders toward British Columbia's greatest industry. The lumber industry, he says,
deserves no consideration and he denounces the government because it
lias not specially excepted lumber
from  the  war    tarifl.     The duty  on
lumber he. describes as being "for the
benefit of an industry that haB no
claim upon tbe consideration of the
people of this country from any
i.oint of view."
Surely after this explicit declaration of the attitude of thc Liberal
party those who wish the government
of Canada to aid in stimulating a
revival of the lumber industry, in
British Columbia can have no illusions as to what might be expected
from a Liberal administration. Hostility, not sympathy, is alone to be
expected. In the opinion of thc Liberal leaders lumbering is an industry
that hus no claim to consideration
irom any  point of view.

Not least of the benefits which thc
McBride administration has, conferred
upon the city is its ready .aCq'Uiesenee
in thc general wish that the western

desired, although in doing so it no

represent! iti ves of those constituencies from which territory has been

in  its consequences it will  le a boon
to the cfity  of vast magnitude.  Nothing   would   do  more   for      Revelstoke
than an extension   of   the trunk rond
westward. The junction of thc RevelBtoke road Bystem with those of  the
and      Kamloops     districts

The council of the Victoria Board o^
Trade thereupon appointed a special
committee to inquire into thiB and
other matters relating to the export,
of our lumber. One of the matters
first tuken up was the condition of
our trade with Australia, and, after
full inquiry, it was apparent tha*-
what was needed was either a comprehensive reciprocity treaty witb
Australia or a preferential on Canadian lumber. A comprehensive report,
on the subject was forwarded to Bir
George Poster, minister of trade and
commerce, as well as to the provincial government and the B.C. Lumber
and Shingle Manufacturers' association. A very complimentary reply w,fiH
received from the minister, ..Ibut it Was
evid"nt that, owing to tbe conditions
arising out of the war, action would
have to be postponed for the time
being. When G.H. Barnard went to
Ottawa to lie present at the session
he was placed in possession of the
coriespondenee. He consulted with H.
P. Creen, M.I'., and they forwarded
jointly a request from the minister
that the hoard and thc association
should join in recommending Borne
names of persons from among whom
a commissioner could he selected.
The lumbermen suggested Mr. MacMillan; the government consented to
his acceptance of the position; the
board of trade concurred in thc recommendation, which was telegraphed to Ottawa and the appointment
was at once made. Mr. MacMillan,
heing notified hy telegraph. The whole
transaction was carried .throiigli with
great expedition.

handsome  earnings  from the  old pro
parties until    tbe new Copper Mouu

The British Columbia Copper company is one of tho few idle copper
producers Which has not yet taken
full advantage of the greut improvement in the copper meta'l situation.
Whereas the other producers are
expanding operations to somewhere
near normal, uud those which shut
down lust August huve resumed production, the British Columbia Binelter

blown in, nor have auy dolinite p.aus
been made for resumption of production, alnce it was closed dowu August
20 following the outbreak uf the war
iu Europe und the dislocation of the
copper iudUBtry.
It is probable, however, that ut
the annual meeting some announcement will be forthcoming as to tbe
piano of the company, especially with
regai il to resuming production, and

at ldust part of the campaign of development und tbe interest on tho

The development in tho new chopper Mountain property are described
by officials of the company ub eminently satisfactory. New ore iB being
opened up which exccedB the original
anticipations very materially, both
as regard grade of the ore and tonnage. Drilling crews have been cut
down during tbo past few months,
owing, among other things, to the
inclement wintery weather. It is also
probable that shortage of available
funds  is handicapping  operations.
It is barely possible that the pro-
'its from the Mother Lode mine mav
bc greatly increased. Recoveries have
dropped sadly here. They were formerly around 18 pounds of Copper, aud
119c. to $1.2 M in gold-silver per ton.
They dropped in 1913 to 13J pounds
of copper and 76c. in gold-silver, nnd
smelting costs rose higher, The new
Copper Mountain ores will furnish a
mixture which should reduce smelting materially, and it b possible
that thc improved smelting mixture
may result in an improvement ln recoveries from Mother I.ode ores. A
larger tonnaee of Mother Lode ores

Genius of Robert Burns
(Continued from  Pa-ge One.)

•an  fail  to  Krnsp  the  spirit      of    his
Work and working people owe much
to Robert Burns, for he raised labor
forever to a proper dignity. '"An hon
?st man's the noblest work of God,"
was his cre«d. "The rank is but the
guinea-stamp. The man's thc gotfd
for a' that" was ever his text. His
pen was ever devoted to the cause
of liberty. Our soldiers today tight
for the same liberty he worked to
.foster—Liberty  of    mind   and    spirit.
liberty of creed and conscience. His
poems aro the expression of all Scot-
laud because they contain all the
ideals for yvhich Scotland has ever
Thc lecturer sketched briefly an outline of the poet's life, mentioning only such details ub were required to
explain his writings. H'.s life should
be studied in its various phases; his
poetry, in sections. He saw and understood life to Its core and thus he
can give his readers the clue to th.1
heart of things.
Hums was horn in 17.VJ of humble
though very worthy parents. His
early life was tilled with heavy toll
as he assisted his father in gardening
or farming. He was a true "son ol
the soil," yet the beauty of nature
was ever food for bis soul. He wrote
nothing until bis sixteenth year.
though b" acquired excellent schooling from n muster, John'Murdoch,
Not unt'd he reached manhood did
bis genius begin to find express:..
Then he wrote of what he sa,v and
knew, and thorein lbs his power. He
clothed his native dl on anil nith
with the beautiful imagery of his own
soul, lie Was in full sympathy with
nature and inclined to spiritualize ber
as well as to idealize womunkind., "In
ail the foul weather Hut s eiicuiint T
ed iu his life, a woman may he discerned Hitting through it Iue u
stormy petrel", sajs a biographer.
Typical of his lighter sentiments towards the fair sex is the song "Creen
Crow the Hushes, oh," but the profundity of his affections is portrayed
more nearly by his s >ng to "Highland Mary," "To Mary in Heaven,'1
"Mary .Morrison." There f-e.'ms no
doubt but Highland Mary was the
onfl great love of his We though he
worshipped at many shrines.
Hums' venture's in farming were
disastrous financially, but rich in
poetic productions. "To a Mouse,"
"Hallowe'en," "To a Daisy," "Tarn
o-Shanter," etc., are well known examples.
Bo keen was thc poet in probing
the places where cant and hyprocrisy
dwelt, that he yvas driven to produce "Holy Willie's Prayer," that
brilliant satire against the kirk and
und session. The publication of this
poem had the Immediate effect oi
causing the poet to lose c iste both

Only the opportune Sale of his first
volume of poems chunged his pur-
jpose. He removed instead to Edin

feted und lionize I. Here he made
many fri nils but few poems of merit.
Soon afterwards he began the tour
of the Highlands yvhich wis the be-
ginniiiL- .,f the end of the rarer of
Robert Burns.
His occupation of exciseman was
Lhe yvorst possible for one of bis
proclivities. He wasted his time and
his spiritual force of mind drinking
in wayside taverns, which he fro.|lient

The poet's life came to an untimely emd iu his thirty-scveuth yeur. A
chill, following u drinking bout,
worked heavily upon a system already weakened by mnny excesses.
His last days yvere embittered by
In conclusion, the lecturer eulogized
the lutent possibilities contained in
the character of Burns. It is to tbe
everlasting disgrace of Scotland that
(he allowed and well-nigh forced hei
most highly gifted son to go the way
of the wanton, when he would
ub euBily have folloyvcd the putha
of respect and honor.

Pirates Winners of
Well Contested Match
On Monday evening in the Y.M.C.A
gymnasium the regular baBket bull
game of the senior league was played
oh* between the Pirates and tbe Dio
Hards. The game started at s.3b and
ithc teams lined up as IoIIowb:
1'irates.    Mcl.eo'l.  |;     liruce,  f;  Burridge,   c;     Haug,   g;      Mullholaiid,   g;
Die  Hards.—Sibbald, f;      Purvis,  f;
White,  c;  Coursier,  g;  Woodland,  g.
|   The  ball  had  not been in play    half
a minute before     the     Pirates     had
scored a goal,     and vcry soon    after
they  netted  another  giving them      a
good lend. The play during the      tirst
few      minutes      looked as it     the  Die
Hards were going to get a good  beat
lng  uful  that there was going to ihe  a
very   high  score,   but it  was not vcry
long before the Die     Hards recovered
themselves and  made some  very   nicu
plays;   Purvis coining  in     for  a good
share of the baskets.      In   all during
the  lirst half   he   shot   live baskets,
and  these came in very handy     when
the  .score  was counted up  at tbe   end
of tbc half and it  was found  that the
Die Hards    were      leading      by seven
points, the score being 16 to 9.
i    In the second  period    the      Pirates
decided thai  if they were     to   scand
any show in the game     they      would
have to have Charlie  Newsome in tlio
lineup,  so  when     the    whistle    blew!
Ch ii lie made his appearance and   the i
tepm took heart agiiu,    the     Becond
half   was more  exciting  than   the tii'Bt
as  both sides worked hard and      the |
blackboard showed that the score was I
climbing up all  the  time,, soon     thc j
Pirates wer" tied with     their oppon- j
ents, and nfter hanging there     for   ., ;
while the score gradually mounted up
for the Pirates till at thc end ol  the j
gain-  they  had     seven     more points j
thff.n the Die Hards,  of these     New-
some got four,  Bruce  two and    Burridge  one,   while  thc  Ble HardB   did
nothing  in  the shooting     line  except |
net one foul goal. The linnl score was
21 to 17 in favor of the  Pirates.
