Will Not Use Provincial Voters'  List
In Manitoba and British   Columbia���Protest is Forwarded
by Local Government
A measure which will be viewed
with great suspicion by the people
of British Columbia and of Canada
generally was introduced into the
Dominion house on March 9th, and
given its first reading. By it the
Dominion election law, in so far
as it applies to the provinces of
British Columbia and Manitoba, is
changed. Instead of using the
provincial lists, as elsewhere in
Canada, the governor-general in
council is to be empowered to appoint officials to revise the lists.
The same change is made applicable to New Ontario and the
northern portion of Quebec, but
the bill- is evidently aimed at the
two provinces that went Conservative at the last provincial elections.
Hon. W. J. Bowser, attorney-
general, immediately upon receipt
of the bill, telegraphed the minister of justice at Ottawa, protesting
against the proposed measure.
The principal amendments to the
existing act are as follows:
1. The Dominion Election Act
is amended by inserting therein ?��s
sec. 9. a. the following: 9. a. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained voters' lists
for the provinces of Ontario and
Quebec which consists of territory
not municipally organized and
where there is no regular assessment or valuation roll upon which
voters' list are based and for the
several electoral districts in the
provinces of Manitoba and British
Columbia shall be prepared immediately after the issue of any
writ for an election in an}' such electoral district or in any electoral
district composed or partly com-
bosed of such territory or at any
time when the governor in council
so directs and for the purpose of
preparing and giving effect to such
voters' lists, the goverdor in council may appoint any necessary officers and confer upon them all necessary powers.
2. In the preparation of such
lists the provisions of the laws of
the province, regulating the preparation and manner of revising and
bringing into force the provincial
voters lists in the like cases shall
as far as possible be obtained and
followed, and no person whose
name is not included in the voters
list so prepared and revised shall
be entitled to vote.
3. In the preparation of such
lists the voters list which were prepared for the several polling divisions situate wholly or in part within the electoral district or wholly
or in part within such unorganized
territory as such polling divisions
were established at the last preced-
provincial election and which under the laws of the province are
then or were last in force for the
purposes of provincial elections
shall be taken, and the names of
voters on such lists shall be distributed among the different polling divisions established for such
Dominion election, so that each
voter shall be assigned to his proper polls, and the mmes of all persons who are not qualified to vote
in the said electoral districts and
not already on the said lists shall
be added to the said lists."
The bill in question was introduced by the minister of justice
the Hon. W. Aylesworth in the
House of Commons and read for
the first time on the 9th instant.
FARMERS' INSTITUTE.
The annual meeting of the Central Farmers' Institute opened at
the government buildings at Victoria last week with about thirty
delegates from various parts of the
province, representing the various
local institutions. Addresses were
delivered Premier McBride, Hon.
R. G. Tatlow, J. R. Anderson and
Mayor Hall, who extended on behalf of the city a welcome to the
delegates. H. H. Woodward of
Lower Nicola was in attendance as
representative of the Nicola Institute. 	
Gone But Not Forgotten.
G. D. McMorris who has resided at
Lower Nicola, Aspen Grove and latterly
at Merritt, took rather a sudden departure last Thursday, driving to Spences
Bridge, his wife and family following
the next day by train. He failed to
settle before he left. His largest creditor a few hours before the departure of
the family had what was left of their
goods turned over to him. McMorris
failed to settle with the driver who
took him to the Bridge. What is Mer-
ritt's gain is some other towns loss.

Inspector  Gordon  Me ts  Citizens and
Discusses  School  Matters.���Will
Recommend  School  to Be
Opened at Once.
At a meeting held in Hyland
hall on Wednesday evening,
Inspector Gordon met with
about thirty of our citizens to
talk over school matters. He
informed the people that in his.
opinion, there were enough
children in the place to warrant the opening of a school at
an early date and that he intended reporting to that effect
to the education department.
At the outset, it is proposed
to have an assisted school, the
people providing a temporary
building while the government
pays the teacher's salary. Later
when the number of school
children is larger, and when
the ultimate requirements in
the way of school accommodation can be more certainly determined than at present, a
regular government school district will be formed and the
government will erect a suitable school or schools to serve
the needs of all children in
Merritt and Middlesboro, together with any who may live
within a couple of miles of
these towns.
In the new district contemplated, the inspector recommends that one good, large,
graded school be erected rather
than that a number of small
schools be established in which
a single teacher must struggle
to teach children in all stages
of public school work. With
one good graded school of four
or five rooms well equipped,
centrally located for Merritt
and Middlesboro, and with a
good staff of teachers excellent
work should be done for the
children.
As soon as the inspectors
report reaches Victoria, notices
will be sent out by the superintendent of education calling the
first school meeting. At this
meeting trustees are to be elected and a school arranged for.
The trustees will then secure a
teacher and the government
will assume oversight of the
school.

Merritt, B. C, April 2, 1908.
It is impossible to believe
that any political party would
attempt to disfranchise any person who isentintled to receive
a ballot and vote, but such is
the case at Ottawa. Sir Wilfrid Laurier by allowing such an
amendment to become law will
fall in the estimation of many
who have always admired him.
He will be responsible for
the most iniquitous act ever introduced by any government.
Whether a man's political opinions be Conservative, i iberal
or Socialist, and he a British
subject, no party of men should
have the right to deprive him
from exercising the franchise
which he is entitled, merely to
keep office. The amendment
effects provinces which are Conservative.
eral men to it, and a thinly-
populated country is apt to
miss her dead more than a
crowded one. When, from
her point of view, they have
died for no conceivable advan
tage, mjral or material, her
business instincts, or it may be
mere animal love of her children, cause her to remember and
resent quite a longtime after
the thing should be decently
forgotten."
Nobody in British Columbia
wants a "boom," but, unless all
signs fail, this province is going to have experience of something closely resembling that
for the next two or three years
whether we want it or not, says
the Victoria Colonist. Turn
your attention to whatever section of the province you choose
and you cannot fail to be struck
with the evidences that great
progress and development are
certain. Here on Vancouver
island we are witnessing an
awaking which bids fair to assume incalculable proportions;
on the upper coast the Grand
Trunk Pacific will put an army
of men to work on railway construction and preparing its terminals; in the Kootenays the
mining industry was never on
a more prosperous basis, and
in respect to fruit growing there
is an assurance that the results
of 1908 will break all records.
We have all of us talked about
the "good times" coming to
British Columbia. They have
arrived.	
Rudyard Kipling's admirers
in Canada will regret to learn
that he is making an ass of him
self in a series of letters he is
writing for Collier's about Canada. The following is an extract from his first letter;
"It was an experience to
move in the midst of a new
contempt One unde-stands
and accepts the bitter scorn of
the Dutch, the hopeless anger
of one's own race in South Africa is also part of the burden;
but the Canadian's profound,
sometimes humorous, often bewildering, alway polite contempt of the English of today
cuts a little. You see, that
late unfashionable war was very
real to Canada.    She sent sev-
