Mr. Johnston then explained the insurance deal referred to by Mayor
Cray. He stated that the business
was offered to lilm by a Vancouver
firm and as he was in the Insurance
business his firm naturally accepted.
The business had been received
through a broker and after commissions were spilt there was received a
total of $7.50..
"1 am In this run, not for fun but
to win," concluded Mr. Johnston, "and
I ask you tomorrow, If you think after hearing my references on these

THURSDAY MORNING,  JANUARY   15    1914.
HERE'S TO THE HARBOR.
Of all the issues in the present municipal campaign,
and there is at least one for every candidate for mayor
and aldermen, the most important is that of the harbor.
The obvious inference is that it is imperative in the best
interests of the city "that the ratepayers cast their votes
for the men who, they are absolutely sure, will stand behind that scheme and see it through to a successful finish.
Many a candidate in the heat of the campaign and in a
desire to secure the votes of his fellow citizens is tempted
and may yield to the temptation to adopt what he considers the popular side of an important issue both because
he thinks it is right and because it is likely to count in his
favor at the polls. That is not the kfnd of a man New
Westminster needs at this time to see that the most important work it ever has attempted is carefully and determinedly carried through. The man for the place now is
the man who believes the harbor is essential to the very
future life of this city; who believes that on that harbor
stands or falls the great development of the days to come
which should be this city's by right and who supports the
harbor scheme, not as a means to catch votes, but because
he recognizes his plain duty to New Westminster and intends to do it whether he is popular or not.
The harbor improvement scheme always has been considered a big and important work and rightly so, but at
the polls today it is facing a crisis that may have a more
important bearing on it and its future usefulness than
any other situation has developed since the ratepayers
voted the first money to put it under way.
I P'or every man who has the future well being of New
Westminster at heart and who honestly believes in the
great destiny of this fresh water port the watchword today is, "The Harbor," not a qualified harbor, not a reduced waterfront line, not a modification of the comprehensive plan along which the work is progressing, but a
real harbor, one that will be able to take care of the big
carriers of the ocean the minute the river mouth is ready
to admit them.
New Westminster ratepayers may rest assured that
if they show any weakness at the polls today that��weak-
ness will act as a boomerang in times to come when they
desire assistance for the river from the Dominion authorities. ��
The main issue today is the harbor and the men to
pick to fill the chairs of the mayor and aldermen are those
men who, it is absolutely certain, will stick to that harbor
through thick and thin.
Here's to the harbor.
water supply, fire protection, sanitary
arrangements and all the equipment
which is at the foundation of good
government Every year Canada is
adding by immigration 300,000 or 400,-
000 to its population, Obviously that
means expenditure here to house them.
The municipalities haVQ been thoroughly impressed with the necessity
of economy. It now remains for the
economy of necessity to be more im-
i pressed upon the British investor.
Canadian municipalities must be heavy
borrowers during 1IU4 and later years
In order to finances only the necessities of natural and rapid growth.
Their postponement would be poor
economy. Were a few of the armchair
critics, instead of carelessly reading
the prospectus of a new loan and
concluding that the Dominion Is over-
borrowing, to spend a few weeks investigating conditions on the spot,
Canadian credit would improve to
that extent. The easy critic who
sometimes refuses to lend money to a
Canadian community for the construction of, say, waterworks on the pie;*,
of ovcrborrowing is the loudest to
complain when, on his first trip to
Canada, he has to wash his hands in
x muddy mixture which takes the place
of water���because money cannot be
raised fast enough to give that community a proper water supply.
After a long series of critical articles, the London Financial News
comes to the defence of Canada's
credit. "In actual fact," it says,
"there is nothing seriously the matter with Canada. The trouble lies in
London, where the financial stringency
has hampered the credit not only of
Canada, but of other countries. In fact,
the curtailment of credit is worldwide. The best answer Canada can
give to the criticisms is to say nothing but go on paying interest and tak-

if you want an honest deal
ing  care  of   her obligations  as   they
fall tlue. Canada has only one thing to
fear, and that is the unreasonable curtailment   of   her  credit    in     London.
Such a reversion of policy would causa
trouble. In Canada, but-it is not believed or suggested that bankers in London  Intend   bringing about  any  dras-
j tic   curtailment   of   Canada's    credit.
| The reaction has set in, and demands

artificial   means  being necessary."
ALASKA HALIBUT BRINGS

Seattle,  Jan.   14.���What 'has    beei^
practically a fresh fish famine in Seattle for the past week was partially
jlifted yesterday and this morning by
j the arrival of 100,000 pounds of fresh
J halibut from Alaska on the steamship
I Spokane and 20,000 pounds on the liner    Jefferson.    Both    cargoes    were
! eagerly snapprd up by local buyers at
prices within a fraction of 10 cents a
pound,    the    highest  figure paid  for
halibut in many months.
Storms which have prevailed for several weeks along the coast ami in
Alaska waters have bet n responsible

Single pound of the fish had come In

The steamship Chicago of the Ciilo-

'she is expected here within about ten
:days, though no surprise will-be caus-

With  the  scarcity of halibut  there
jalso is hardly a pound of fresh salmon

Canadians and the
Financial Stringency
On t':c subject of thn financial
stringency and its relation to Canada.
Ihe Monetary Times says:
Even in international Ught money
;:ffnirs there appiears to be necessity
for a "goat." Money is scarce everywhere, and dear.  "This is causing em-
Tjarrasament and inconvenience to
���many countries. The nations have
lookrd around and decided- while
Canada was busy nation building���
that youthful Canada may as well be
the "goat." Anyhow, one would gather that from the numerous lectures
and Bermong in the financial press of
New York, London and elsewhere.
We are told by one authority that the
best answer to these criticisms is to
say nothing but go on paying interest, nnd take care of obligations as
th y fall due,   That is pretty good ad-
��� vice, but Canada's silence may become painful. It is time for the "goal"

cording to th: records of the Monetary Times, Canada's public flotations

flies and of temporary loans outstanding in the London market. Last year's
'loans made the Heaviest annual sum
on record. A careful examination of
the list of borrowers and of the purposes for which funds were raised,
fails to reveal any marked tendency
to borrow unnecessarily. The railway-- obtained the second largest

when he had met him in the mine
yard. Later when ihe union men
I marched White before the committee,
another man named Anderson, who
was carrying a gun and who was with
Morris, had told the witness that he
had to go before the committee dead
or alive; It was for him to choose.
When they had reached the place
where the committee was in session
witness said that prisoner had delivered   him   over  with     these     words:

Miss Quigley, who, it is said ls engaged to be married to the prisoner,
was the first in the box for the defence. She had been with him considerably during the day on which he
is accused of having taken part In unlawful proceedings at Extension and
carefully outlined tho hours he was
In her company. She gave her evidence in clear-cut style and was not
much shaken In cross-examination.
Another lady, who appeared on the
stand for the defence, Mrs. Matthews,
evidently had a deep-rooted hatred for
non-union men and a large amount of
respect and affection for the strikers.
She described the non-union crowd
that resisted the onslaught of the striking hundreds with bullets, as "cannibals," and generally, throughout her
testimony evinced distinct sympathy
for the strikers and a decided antipathy  ror the strike breakers.
The first daily skirmish of the defence with the bench came at the tall
end of the jury choosing operation.
Nearly the whole panel had been called
and many had been challenged and
stood   aside   till   there   remained   one
chair In the jury box to be filled.
Stafford Graham was called and Mr.
Bird for the defence Immediately challenged him "for cause'," stating that it
was known that Graham had openly
declared his antipathy to the strikers.
The challenge, however, had no weight
with the court and the trial proceeded.

of policy have been admirably combined in the adminis-'

has it been cleaner than it is today?. We have a police

As the Dominion government will make grants for
harbors in Canada only-where regularly-constituted harbor commissions have the administration of tho harbors
in their hands, the harbor property of New Westminster
in the near future will be turned over by bylaw to the recently-appointed harbor commission, which will be governed in all its acts entirely by the civic bylaw on one side
and tho Dominion act on the othei\ thus ensuring as far
as possible a safe and sane administration. In the civic

the writer offered to form a separate

beon carried out.   Now as every player on the three teams Is a paid servant  of  t.ie  Patricks  is  It not  reasonable to suppose that they will carry
out   his   Instructions?   What would]
happen if they did not?   1 am afraid \
this must be left t.i your Imagination.
Up until last Friday's game the writer j
for tihe good i.f the game, had li ft 'his
matter  entirely   alone   but     the    refereelng on Ciis occasion being so much '
worse than  heretofore I  though!  an
explanation mignit put matters In their
proper light.    Imagine  Frank  Patrick j
dictating to  referees,    goal    umpires,,
time-keepers   and   even   Westminster ji
players on  the ice- and  expecting the
game to flourish.   A grtat many sup- \
porters or the Westminster team, especially in Vancouver have asked the
writer Why we stand for Frank Patrick |
as   combined   referee,  judge   or   play, ;
etc., and I can only say we have done
so up 'to the  present to try and  promote Cie game, knowing it be one ol |
the cleanest and fastest games played, j
I might, impress on you again that I
although some of the directors of the
Westminster  Arena  company  are ou j
tihe executive of the Patrick league, the j
local company has no voice whatever,
in the management or the Westminster team.   It Is now up to the sporting
public to demand their rights rrom the
powers that be nnd remember that it
is the money taken In at the door that
returns rrom the centre or the Ice.

There was once upon a time a candidate for mayor named J. J. John
ston, who advertised a great sensation. It was a dreadful thing with
horns of a monster and the cloven
hoofs of his satanic majesty. It was
to be on public exhibition in the opera
house of the city of New Westminster
on a certain evening. It was to be der
magnificently staged in the lurid eloquence of its owner.
Long before the hour hundreds
were turned away and every Inch of
room  was crowded, but
THERE WAS NO MONSTER,
not  even the South  Sea  Bubble  had
les*-. In it.
When P. T. Barnum advertised, he
believed the "people loved to be hum
bugged," but he never attempted such
a humbug as did J. J. Johnston In the
meeting last night. If Barnum's fat
lady was a few pounds under the advertised weight, she was at least a
fat lady. Such a hoax as was perpetrated upon the citizens last night Is
enough to make Barnum turn In his
peaceful slumber and wish he had
lived to meet the mayor's opponent.
A false alarm, a fizzle of damp pow-
bomb which did not explode,
such was the fare served up to a
crowded audience invited from the
platform of Mayor Gray's meeting by
the gentleman who is seeking to succeed him..   J. J.'s ghost failed to ma

What are the elements ir. civic administration which
the people demand in a leader?  The people Jike economy,
but this must be coupled with progress. These two lines ^l^^t^nTVoS��t
of policy have been admirably combined in the admmis- true,
tration of the mayor during the past year. All good citizens like a clean city. When in the history of the city
has it been cleaner than it is today? We have a police
matron for the protection of young girls, and the segregated area is a thing of the past.
The mayor has opposed the granting of further licenses of any kind, and has rigidly enforced the law.
The harbor work speaks for itself as a magnificent
undertaking worthy of the city and of the future which
awaits it.
The mayor has hewn out strong lines in his dealings
with the C. N. R. If a strong man is wanted to make the
final arrangements with this company, no one is better
fitted for the task.
The city has not exempted the C. N. R. from one cent j^^"
of taxation, although the provincial government have nutting	
done SO. 'for this work was a serious mistake, city In Canada

This is an issue which the mayor is prepared to fight
to a finish in the endeavor to have the railway company
pay their fair share of the taxes.
As the Dominion government will make grants for
harbors in Canada only-where regularly-constituted har-
two bor commissions have the administration of the harbors
in their hands, the harbor property of New Westminster
in the near future will be turned over by bylaw to the recent Iv-appointed harbor commission, which will be governed in all its acts entirely by the civic bylaw on one side

ECONOMY
A. W. GRAY'S PLATFORM.
The following platform of Mayor Gray shows a complete grasp of the needs of the city, and a practical knowledge of the city's moral requirements. This is a clear,
clean-cut policy which the citizens should endorse:
That all city contracts shall contain a clause that all
labor required must be employed through the Municipal
Labor Bureau.
That $3.00 a day remain the standard wage of labor.
That the eight-hour day be continued as at present.
That the criminal code be enforced and that this city
be kept clean.
Strict inspection of theatres and other public-
buildings.
Curfew by-law.
No money by-laws to be submitted in 1914.
Vote of electors on harbor commission agreement.
Insert a clause that the first charge against this property
be the interest and sinking fund on $500,000.
Insert a clause that city must have privilege of reentry. (276.,,. *

Joe Hall of Quebec Retaliates for Last
Encounter���Wanderers and
Ontarios  Lose.
Interesting   Letter   from   Member   of|keepB   Frank   Patrick   In   his   present
frame of mind
Arena  Company���Up to   Frank
Patriok.
The following communication addressed to the sporting editor from an
official connected with the local arena
company, will supply considerable
food for thought for the hockey fans
In the city. Coming as It does from
one connected with the inside details
of the professional game in this city,
no further comment ls necessary.
Here Is the letter: '
Owing to the feeling that has arisen
over the refereelng of the hockey fixture of last Kriday an explanation
from an official or the Westminster
Arena company should not be amiss
at this time.
Consldeiahle dissatisfaction was
caused last year owing to the fact
that the hockey teams in the three
coast cities were owned and operated
by one person, namely Frank I'atrlck,
managing director or the Vancouver
Arena company, At that time professional hockey was in a turmoil all
over Canada and the officials of the
Westminster Arena company did not
feel justlflul in taking the responsibility of operating a team iu the Coast
league. However, during August of
last year Lester Patrick, manager of
the Victoria team, called on the directors of the Westminster Arena company and we discussed t'.ie matter of
operating our own team ror the season
��>r 1613-14. I must say that at this
time Lester Patrick made a very fair
offer and a meeting of the Arena company was Immediately held and the
matter wns discussed thoroughly. The
directors of the arena company decided as before that the risk would be
too great from the company's standpoint and three or the directors, namely E. II. Savage, Dr. F. I'. Smith and
the writer offered to form a separate
company for the operation of professional hockey  and  take the responsi-
Tbanking you, Mr. Editor, for your
valuable space and hoping the general
public will take this matter up further, l am, yours respectfully
CLAYTON A. BOURNE.
f AST HOCKEY TONIGHT
There'll   Be  Something   Doing  at  the
Rink This Bright  Evening.
Considerable interest is being manifested In the doubleheader hockey
games at the arena tonight when the
(leavers of this city clash with the
Vancouver Oarsmen and Fraser Mills
take on the Columbias, also or Van-
�� ouve.*.
Although the two games are in the
nature of friendly encounters, considerable ginger and pep will probably
be injected into the struggle owing to
the claim of the Vancouver league
Borne weeks ago that New Westminster was offering inducements to Ter-
j minal City players.
On their showing of Tuesday night
the Heavers should outskate the Oarsmen,   while  the  slap  dash,  go-for-the-
j net style of Circle F will undoubtedly
' make ihe Columbias hustle for points.
The first game    will    start    at    X
I o'clock.      Arrangements    have    been
I completed   to  announce   the   election
returns from the centre of the Ice.
Montreal, Jan. 14.���Carrying on his
feud of the past few seasons with
Newsy Lalonde, Joe Hall, of Quebec,
was banished from tonight's match,
won by the flying Frenchmen from
the champions by a score of 4 to 3.
Early in the second period of tonight's match, Hall went around one
Bide of his own nets to meet Lalonde
coming the other way. He cross-
chfcked Lalonde so that the French
player was knocked cold and had to
be assisted from the Ice. Lalonde's
head was cut In two places and necessitated several stitches. Helen e Hren-
nan and Judge of Play Hern sent Hall
from the Ice with a match foul. With
the exception or the Lulonde-llall
mix-up the Kanit* was remarkably
clean.
Bumps  Wanderers  Hard.
Toronto, Jan. 14. Tonight's N. H.
A. game, Torontos and Wanderers,

reals scored at all. The Wanderers
did not tally until the final period and
* the final score was 10 to 2.

bllity away from the arena company,
paying a fair  rental  for the rink for
a series of hockey games  to  be  ar-1
ranged by schedule.
This proposition was put before Leg- ;
ter  Patrick  and  he  readily agreed  to
It Rid left for the east In <iuesl of ma-1
tcrial for the trams the next day.    It
was underatood that tbe Westminster !
tei��m   of   1912-13   was   to ne   the   pro-1
perty  of  the  syndicate  and   the   Pat- j
ricks  were  to  assist  us  in   procurln;;
sufficient players to fill out the team, j
The syndicate being under the Impression that the Patricks were acting !
in good faith went ahead and spent
considerable time and money on the J
formation ot a company styled the
Westminster Hockey Club. Limited.
Some weeks after the Patricks returned from tbe east the writer reopened
the negotiations with them and Frank
Patrick calmly Informed mB that owing to the fact that a commission bad
been formed governing th* salaries
of  all   professional   hockey   players   in
Canada any agreement entered into In
Westminster had been forgotten about.
The syndicate, however, pushed the
matter further and the generous Frank
Patrick said. yes. we could have the
hockey team but not tlu* franchise or
the Westminster hockey team in tli"
H. ('. Hockey association, which everyone Is aware is also operated by
Frank Patrick, with the help or a few
paid picked officers. We were left in
the position that if next year they did
not want ub ln the league they could
simply ask ub to stay out and we
would have no redress. At this Juncture we decided that the deck being
used in tho little game contained several jokem and we chucked the matter up once for all. Finally the Patricks applied for the use of the arena
for six nights during the season and
rather than deprive the general public of professional hockey the offer
was accepted.
LeKer Patrick admitted to us during   our   early   negotiations   that   the
system of player referees was a very
poor one and guaranteed to bring out
two referees from the east to handle
all the gnmes which of course has not
bc-en carried out.    Now as every player on the three teams is a paid servant  of  t.ie  Patricks is  It  not  reasonable to suppose that they will carry
out   bis    Instructions?   What would
happen if they did not?    I am afraid
this must be iefi to your Imagination,
I'p until la.'.t Friday's game the writer
ror tihe goi d cf the game, had 1* rt this
matter entirely  alone but    the    refereelng on this occasion being so much
worse  than   heretofore   I   thought   an
explaiui'!* n might put matters in their
proper light.    Imagine Frank Patrick
diet; i Ing  to  referees,    goal    umpires,
lime-keepers   and   even   Westminster,
players on the Ice and expecting the
game to flourish.   A great many supporters Of the Westminster team, especially It.  Vancouver have asked the
writt-r Why we stand for Frank Patrick \
as  combined   referee,  judge   of   play.;
etc., and 1 can only Bay we have done,
so up lo the  present to try and  promote the game, knowing it Ik; one of
the cleanest and fastest games played
I might impress on you again that
although Borne of the directors of the
Westminster  Arena  company are on
ilhe executive of the Patrick league, tho
local company has no voice whatevei
[D the management or the Westminster team.    It IH now up to the sport ng
public to demand their rights^froto the
powers that be and remember Ub.t I

Ottawa,  Jan.  14.���Canada  will  not ���
launch a naval program this year, It
developed  with the opening of parlia-!
ment.
At the last session the government I
brought in  a  bill  appropriating $35,-j
000,000  for the  construction of three
battleships which were to be assigned j
to the British home fleet and It was I
expected  that the government  would
introduce the same measure again this
session.    The speech from the throne
today, however, which outlines legislation, stated, that, in view of the defeat
of  the   naval   bill   last   session,  and
there  is  still  a  Liberal   majority  In
the  senate,   the  government  did  not
deem   it  expedient   to  bring   forward
naval  legislation this session.
There  are  no  measures  of  Importance  foreshadowed.

Some of this is new work; most of
It is completion of what has already
been commenced. Do you want It entrusted to new and Inexperienced
men, or left with those who have
commenced it and had it under control during the past three years ?
My platform for 191*1 will be tin
same as for the past three years:
Every possible assistance and encouragement to persons and companies having Jjona fide propositions
for the good of the City; and the obtaining from Ihe Governments of
every utility and property that may
benefit  the citizens  In  the future.
The vote ou Thursday will greatly
affect your property interests In the
City. I ask for that vote on my belief that your Interests have been protected and advanced in thr.* past by
the Councils over which I presided.
Take a couple of hours off and cast
your vote wr favor of a progressive
policy.
Yours sincerely,

WORTH REMEMBERING
WHEN YOU BALLOT
Tuofcity council claims great credit <
for rutting    down    all    possible    expanses.   It is no more than any other
business uian or resident  in  the city |
has done during the past  year.
T. U. meeting.    Mr. Johnston's support to temperance has been lifelong.
Executive ability is needed in any
���Rdministr;ltive Sphere of life. What
differentiates individuals is character
and integrity of purpose.
If Mayor Gray could effectually
block the granting of a license which
many Sapperton people wanted why
did he fail so Igiiominioiisly to block
the granting of three bottle and
wholesale licenses which seven hundred ratepayers wished to bave submitted'to the people's will?
There's such a thing as hunting
with the hounds and running with
the hare. It leads to misfortune
sooner or later. Messrs. Gray & Oil-
CDrlst are partners in business. Both
aro upon the license commission.
Hx-Aldernian Johnston is as anxious
for a clean and progressive city as is
Mayor (fray: His methods will differ.
The root oT the social evil is In the
���greed of those who rent the houses
knowing for what Iniquitous purposes
they will be used. Tbe Johnston axe
gors to the root.
There is no need for faked interviews (which have only to be corrected subsequently) in J. .1. Johnston's
campaign. THK PEOPLE are sup-
IKirtmg JOHNSTON.
Kx-Alderman D. S. Curtis and Ex-
Aldermftn Herbert Gilley are respectively proposer and seconder of J. J.
Johnston's Domination papers for
mavor. MesBrs. I,: B. I.usby. ,1. Carter
Smith and W. D. Reid assented thereto.
"1 haven't touched liquor for two
years." said Mayor Gray to the W. C.
Those three naughty policemen
were hiding in the bullruBb.es while
the river of Mayor Gray's eloquence
flowed on, until Moses began asking
questions. Meanwhile it would be as
well for Mayor Oray to follow up his
belated publicity with the names of
those three wicked policemen. This
in fairness to the whole force upon
whom the stigma is at present allowed to rest by his most tactful reply
on Monday night.
"1 tell you, that bottle license deal
is the moBt obnoxious thing ever perpetrated on an intelligent public," J.
.1. Johnston nt Sapperton.
Not until a live member of the
council pointed out that the principle
of employing non-n sidents on the
harbor works was wrong, wns the
residential   ticket   system   introduced.
It's queer how we're always trading horses when crossing streams just
after New Year's nnd yet there have
been many changes since Jim Cunningham  reigned at  the city  hall.
Social and Personal
Mrs. and Miss Cave-Browne-Oave
will not receive today, but wlll be at
home as usual the third Thursday in
February.
The many friends of Mrs. David
McLaughlin Will be glad to hear she
has come through a successful opera-
lion at the Itoyai Columbian hospital.
Miss Alberta V. Fowler has resumed
her elocution classes at St. Ann's
academy.
The condition of D. I). Bourke of this
city, who is lying ill in Vancouver
hospital, showed a slight improvement
last  night.
WEDDING BELLS
KNIGHT-CARTER.
A romance which started in their
boyhood and girlhood days was culminated on Dec. 21, 1913, when, at
Kenora, Ont., Miss Caroline Carter
became the bride of Hoy R. Knight
of this city. The groom is the son
of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Knight, 638
Hamilton street, and is manager and
proprietor of the Coglan Tie & Timber company. The wedding took place
at the home of the bride's mother,
Mrs. 11. W. Ferrier, and was performed by Rev. Mr. Gibson, rector of St.
Alban'B Anglican church, Kenora. The
wedding tour was spent in the different prairie cities, the couple taking
up their residence in a pretty bungalow. 62S Sixth street.
What's the  old junk heap of a gas
plant worth ?
Still  waters run deep.    What about
i Wells and the  bottle license deal?
Mr. Powell, the well paid employee
of the city, should at all times be
ready to receive instructions as to
who should be employed on work authorized by the votes of the ratepayers. It would not be a difficult
thing to get Westminster citizens a
job on any harbor work. Here the
money was voted by them and who
has a better right to participate in
the wages arising from its expenditure.

BELIEVES MAYOR       j
IS NOT SINCERE
NO  HALF  MEASURES
ABOUT J. J. JOHNSTON
ir
Ex-Alderman  Johnston Tells Why   He   ���;������
Is in Race for Mayoralty���Bottle
Licenses.
"Why did I decide to run ?" said
Ex-Alderman J. .1. Johnston. "Well,
it was not until. I had seen and ep-
Iircriated Mayor Gray's attitude at
the adjourned meeting of the licensing board, wheji three bottle licenses
were granted.
"I    claim    that    the    mayor's    bald
-statement   that   he   was  against    the
Ifcattle licenses was not sufficient.    If
ho is sincere, as he would have  people  believe   him   to   be.     he     should I
bare taken  the opportunity  that  any I
<if  the  commissioners  had  and   have '
.spoken   to the subject.     He has  bren
mayor sufficiently long to know how
that  opportunity  is afforded.
"I venture to Suggest I hat if ai lhe
lime the amendment to the Liquor,
License bylaw had in- n brought in.
he bad even hinted t tin* council that!
he was against it and would oppose
it, would never havo been proceeded
with.
"Had 1h�� late Mayor I  or Ex-
Mayor Keary then been in office, and
**iilicr cf them had opposed il as not
being in the best Interests "1 lhe city.
lhe council would have be n resolved
Into a committee of the whole, or an
alderman would have been asked to
take ihe mayor's place. Either mayor
would have spoken f arlessly on so
important a question,
"If Mayor Gray is as sincere, as h��
���would have the people believe, there
were many different ways in which
he could have opposed this increase
of  licenses.   He  could  have  resinn-d."
"I do not relish the discussion in public of salacious details with regard to moral reform and the suppression of
tin* social evil. All I have to
say is that I will see to it that
the criminal code of Canada is
enforced in its entirety.
"Mayor Gray asked why did
1 take no steps regarding
moral reform in the city when
I sat on the council. I was not
on the police committee or the
police commission. Mayor Gray
was on the council with me at
the same time. I might as well
ask why he mad? no move. Ile
did not lift a finger in his present pious crusade until forced
to do so by the representations
made to him."
STRAIGHT TALK  ON
LIQUOR  LICENSES
"I require no introduction to    -:'f
the  public  as  to  how  I   stand
on    temperance    matters.      If
elected, I will oppose the granting of additional    licenses   of   ������:������
any description and    I am out
for  the  repeal   of  tin*   bottling    \:
licenses    recently    granted.    I
recognize that  the liquor busi-    -',:-
ness interests in the city have    O
as fair a  claim  for just  treatment  as any other section    of     ::
the community.    As long as existing licensed houses are con-    -,'���
ducted in conformity with    the
laws  which  govern  them    and    -.:���
which    sanctioned    their crea-    ���::���
tlon, they will not be disturb-    ::���

GOOD   EATS   AT   THE
DOMINION TRUST BLOCK
and     President     Cameron    answered
this.
1 have no doubt Alderman Dodd
will be returned again. He has b:en
endorsed by all labor men. He has
devoted hours and hours of his time
to uplifting and planning to uplift
the working people and I doubt if
Alderman- Uryson had ever spent t
singU' hour so.
Favors Harbor.
It was to the interest of the people
to make New Westminster the greatest port on the coast.
Another argument. being used
again3t labor men is that we are going to drive industries away. Now
the men who have been in council
have not had such personal magnat-
ism to draw Industries here. He also
said it was highly Inflated land value.-i
kept industries away.
I Bottle  License.
i "The stand I take on 'ho bi tile
license and the stand of Lhe labor
people on the bottle licensee is that
.these, are sprcial privileges granted to
* a few. Labor ever thought tie peo-
I pie should say "yes" or "no" in each
I application.
I "I believe that every vacancy on
I the city staff should not be granted
I on recommendation of a committee.
Every one should be advertised before
,hand.
I     His last appeal was that in the people's final judgment they do not leave
' at least all the labor men at the stake.
Independent Workers.
"The labor candidates have been
blamed," said Archie Hogg, "for being
nominated by the trades union, but
we were not, we were nominated by
the working men���-both organized and
unorganized.
"Some say if we labor candidates
are elected we will do what the
trades council tell us, but we will do
what we think  is right."
Gas and   Harbor.
Both gas and harbor questions Mr.
Hogg did not pretend to know all
about it. If ihe people want, d the
gas plant, they would vote for it. The
harbor work needed study before being passed upon by candidates recklessly.
Municipal Ownership.
"These public utilities should be
operated in the Interesta of all citizens, not for profit. The last has
been done and the profits have gone
to pay taxes of outsiders in some
CJ.ses.
New Industries.
"One thing we labor men will do if
put in the council will be to have industries who will employ whites and
whites only. We don't want lo work
against Orientals; we want this a
clean city."
ARGUMENT   BETWEEN
DODD AND  BRYSON
After Alderman Walter Dodd had
on Tuesday night enumerated almost
one dozen reforms thai in* stated
labor had broughl about in New Westminster, Alderman Bryson declared
he was as good, If nol ;i betl r labor
man that Alderman Dodd himself, and
a  hoi  debate ou  both  Bides  followed.
1 I). a. Cameron, also a labor candidate,
last night at the opera house denied
this.
".lust    b*t    us Bee    what  Alderman
] Bryson did for He* workers," ��ald Mr.
Cameron, "When the move to have
