In previous sessions Mr. i'arker
Williams was the spokesman of the
Socialists, says the Vancouver News
Advertiser. He has rn w repudiated
that body by joining the Liberals,
and becoming one of their leaders.
Within the legislature he le the opposition chief, and he spoke yesterday
in that capacity The Socialist organization has on its side recognised
the situation by giving public notice
tbnt the member for Newcastle is no
longer one of them. We may therefore
speak of Mr. I'arker Williams as a
leading member of the political party
now seeking control of the British
Columbia administration. This give
additional importance and double ot-
fensiveness to the reflections which he
has made on the brave and true men
from this province who are Berving
the empire on the battlefields of Europe, and on those others who bave
given tbeir lives in that service.
Before the war Mr.  I'arker Williams

I thing to do but gossip about their
neighbors. In those timeB everyone
i discussed all of his home purchases
i with all of his neighbors. Today a
' man who depends upon conversation
and gossl|> to spread the news of his
store will not find that his place ol
business is much frequented. People
do not exchange information about
their domestic habits as they did
years ago. You have little idea whether your neighbors buy their goods
of Smith, Jones or Brown, at home
or abroad. The world is full of wide
interests, and the bargains one may
find In a certain store are ordinarily
known only to those who find them.
The newspaper is the only efficient
means of acquainting the public with
the business news of the community.
1'or one person that will learn something about a given store by word ol
mouth, a hundred learn about it
through newspaper notices. The advertising columns of a newspaper are
lead just as attentively as any sensation that may appear in the news
"The results of the two policies are
obvious. In one case the merchant
drags along, with only a small part
of the community knowing anything
about what is happening in his store.
In the other case, practically everyone knows wben that merchant has
special bargains, and what can be
done in his store at any given time.
Can there be the least question as to
what kind of merchants get the business?"
Never a day passes that the newspaper man is not stopped by someone, who wants somebody or something      "roasted/'    And  always      the
newspaper man is expected to do   the
:• iast ing on his own responsibility.
Always is he urged under no circumstances to use the name of the person who demands that the roasting
he done. It may be that some time
in the jiast, the newspaper was considered the otlicial "roaster" of the
community, and there have been newspaper men who considered that roasting ae  many  people and  things     as
possible  was  their  sacred duty.   They

Miring, Engineering and Electrical
Record.—The hankers of BritiBh Columbia are as a rule absolutely ignorant of the value and extent of the
mineral resources of the province in
which they carry on business, and too
often they act as knockers of tha mineral industry instead of assisting its
conservative and scientific development. Thc bankers of Spokane have

erated the other day with the business men of that American city in
sending their greetings to the mining

'"We acknowledge the great debt our
city owes to the mineral wealth of
the province, and we confidently look
forward to another period ot activity
sin passing those of earlier days which
made the region famous throughout
the civilized world."
Spokane has realised what Vancouver and Victoria have not—that the
nlneral resources of British Columbia
are amongst the greatest sources of
wealth production. So little is the
value of +.he mineral industry appreciated in these coaBt cities that it is
a rare thing to find a business tirm
willing' to spend five cents to promote
an industry that is the backbone of
the province which supports them.
Unless the commercial firms of these

not far distant when they will have

Mr. Williams—It. was thc Agricultural commission I was speaking of.
Mr. Miller—It is all the same for
my point. He opposes a commission
for one thinp and wants a commission for another.
Dealing with the suggestion that
British Columbia had not sufficient
connection with the outside worls to
handle a shipping industry, Mr. Miller said that the ships were what was
needed to give that vcry connection,
ind declared that if they only hnd the,
carriers to take away their products
every mill in B. C. would be runnin.;

Mr. Miller defended the reputation
of Mr. Graham, the mines inspector,
savlne that after a mnn had been acquitted of a charge by his fellow
countrymen he had a right to expert
that the charge would not. be made
Rfrainst him again. He said thnt Mr.
Graham bad a record to be proud of

The  subject  of  Chinese labor   gave
Mr.  Miller  an  opportunity  to  travel

the resemblance between thc Liberals

them to maintain in our own land,
