NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, FRIDAY, Nov. 10,  1916.
Number 36
ACCORDING  TO BOWSER.
"0, that mine enemy would write a book," exclaimed an inspired writer���realizing apparently that
his enemy was endowed with the ordinary human
frailties and that he could hardly fail to lay himself
open, or to "give himself away," if he succumbed to
the temptation to set down his thoughts in black and
white at any great length. It is nothing new for Premier Bowser (perhaps Premier-reject Bowser would
be a more fitting title) to fall into the snare laid for
him by his own unruly tongue or pen and he has done
it again most signally in the "statement" issued at
Victoria, Saturday evening, and published as a sort of
pastoral from Bishop Bowser in the Government press,
Sunday morning.
Stripped of its verbiage, personal saving-of-face
bombast, and labored attempt at justification for still
hanging on to office, two months practically since the
overwhelmingly adverse verdict of the people, and after it has been known for some weeks that the soldiers'
vote was but a reaffirmation of the decision of the general electorate, this "statement" of Mr. Bowser's
amounts simply to another impudent flouting of the
people and their constitutional rights and privileges for
which he has made himself notorious throughout his
public career, and particularly in the last half decade,
during which his inordinate lust for and practice of
autocratic power became swollen beyond all bounds,
so that at last he could not brook a rival even within
the Government, and now, when rebuked and rejected
in a most exemplary manner by the people, is. so self-
infatuated that he cannot refrain from continuing his
ridiculous posings and pretensions.
"Now that the elections are over and we know definitely the actual results," begins Mr. Bowser, "it is
perhaps" (wonderful condescension, as if a king by
divine right talking down from an infinite height to
his subjects) "incumbent on me as Premier to make a
public statement as to the present situation." And
then this: "Although constitutional practice would
permit my Government to carry on until the newly
elected representatives of the people meet ip Legislative Assembly, yet I would not dp so in the face of the
well expressed and conclusive verdict of the people so
recently recorded." Why such an unnecessary insult
to the public intelligence as to suggest even���to actually state���that it would be in accordance with constitutional practice for a Government, given unmistakable notice to quit early last spring, and beaten to a
frazzle in the general elections in September, to keep
on coolly administering the affairs of the coun try till
the following January-the usual time for convening
the Legislature���until ignominiously kicked out by a
formal vote of the House, which it has been known
for some time stands thirty^seven to ten !
"Before any new Government ca.n be formed, however," continues M^. Bowser, in his self-assumed role
pf great constitutional law-giver, the statute requires
that the Returning Officer, who in this case is the
Deputy Provincial Secretary, shall officially declare
the candidates elected before any of them would be
entitled to a seat in the House, and any elected member would then have to resign If he accepted office under the Crown, This declaration can not be made
until after he has received the official certificate from
the Agent-General in London. Under these circumstances, the present Government must retain office until the legal formalities are complied with, which I
expect will be early this month, when 1 will hand my
resignation to His Honor the Lieuienant-Govt-Pnor,"
Tftjs is wqrse zmd wyr-se���in fact, the coarsest bit of
deliberate Ijunk that Mr, Bowser���Attorney-General
Bowser-has yet attempted (and that's saying a good
deal) to palm off upon the long suffering and grossly
insulted public as constitutional law and gospel.
Mr. Bowser is perfectly well aware���if not, the
average schoolboy could enlighten him -that he is at
liberty to hand in his resignation to His Majesty's representative at any time, tpgether with a recommendation a.9 to his successor, and that the Lieutenant-
Governor may call on any one (not necessarily a member of the Legislature) who he believes has the confidence of the country to form a new Administration;
and that the person so chosen, if he accepts, is at perfect liberty to choose his Cabinet without any regard
to membership in the Legislature; and that such persons, duly sworn in, constitute the Government forthwith, de facto and de jurf,, and do not require to, have
sgats in, thp Legislature until it meets, whjch will not
jn the ordinary cqurse be for two months yet.. Neither
Mj\ Bowser nor the Ljeu,tenant-Governor has to wait
a. moment longer to know���they have known, in fact,
for months---that Mr, Bowser has most emphatically
lost the confidence of the country, and that Mr. Brewster and his colleagues just as emphatically possess it.
In these undeniable, notorious facts is the charter for
Mr. Bowser's resignation or dismissal before this, and
WOMEN'S VOTE IN AUSTRALIA.
As our fellow British citizens in the Antipodes have
headed the procession in Woman Suffrage and other
advanced politico-social legislation, and we in British
Columbia, by virtue of the decisions of the electors in
the recent general election, are just standing upon the
threshold of a general advance along such lines, a leaf
out of the pioneering experience of the people "down
under'' will be of interest and value to us in pursuing
the same path, particularly in the matter of conferring
the vote upon women and the way it has worked out
in the Australian Commonwealth, including its effect
upon the women themselves and its political and economic effects generally.
In an address recently delivered before the Women's Canadian Club, Vancouver, Mr. W. T. Conley,
a visiting Australian journalist, of Sidney, New South
Wales, dealt in a very interesting manner with Australia's experience in the matter of the political enfranchisement of women. They found, he said, among
other things, after the enfranchisement of women,
that they had to educate the new voters, not as one
would educate a child in a school, but to assume their
responsibilities. Australia, he said in passing, takes
the view that every voter should exercise his or her
franchise, and those who do not register may be summoned or fined. On the other hand, they had to educate the men in equal opportunities. Many men feared that women would force men out of the labor
market by working for less, but this had been-remedied by state control, and the wages paid to women
were the same as those paid to men. Consequently,
the possessor of a job held it purely on his or her
merits.
A very good result, continued the speaker,' of the
broadening of ideas concerning women had been to
give women a greater interest in industrial problems,
and a greater sympathy with man's point of view.
Women, he said, were gaining a greater sense of justice and were surmounting the disabilities of two
thousand years, during which they were regarded as
chattels and the use of brains was discouraged. Men
and women as a result of the new political equality
were learning to work as comrades and to respect each
other's ideas. They were taking an interest in the
same things as their husbands, fathers and brothers,
and matters of national importance were of as much
interest to them now as they were to men.
Discussing the effect of the woman's vote on legislation, Mr. Conley said that, contrary to some predictions, women had viewed legislative questions with
calm deliberation and had gone into them with cool,
business-like methods, MWe have no shrieking sisterhood in Australia," he said, A splendid piece of legislation in Australia was old people's pensions, which
had practically done away with poorhouses, etc. The
baby bonus, which was laughed at at first, was proving a fine thing, and in regard to prison administration, if Australia erred, it was on the side of
human kindness. Instead of regarding the criminal
as an outcast, they were taking a more paternal attitude toward him. Their idea of caring for orphan
children was also a splendid one. Instead of bringing
them up on what the speaker termed the "fish hatchery plan," they were endeavoring to farm them out,
believing that the worst foster mother was better than
an institution, where there was always a tendency to
herd them.
Australian legislation, Mr. Conley said he believed,
reflected the true spirit of the teachings of the New
Testament as fully as that of any country in the
world. Referring briefly to the educational system of
Australia, he said it was broad enough to provide a
higher education for everyone who would t&ke It.
any fine-spun pleas justifying his retention of office
any longer, frpm whatever source they come, are
merely the sophistries and quibbles of that fearfully
and wonderfully constructed thing, the legal mind.
According to Mr. Bowser and his legal apologists,
should the ship bringing those returns of the soldiers' overseas votes be torpedoed and sunk, there
would have been no election in British Columbia, and
we should be saddled with the Bowger Government
until the whole fearful and, expensive nightmare was
enacted over a^nt���and even then there would be no
vier.tainty that the same slip might not occur again !
And so on ad infinitum.
Three and a half million men, it is stated, are now
at work in the munition works of Great Britain, and
they are turning out as much in four days as would
have been produced in a year before the war. Four
thousand plants are at work day and night. Here we
have the measure, in one essential particular, of
Britain's determination to do her part in seeing the
war through to a complete and conclusive issue.
HERE AND THERE.
The biggest British recruit, who is said to be a problem to the military authorities, who are wondering
what to do with him, is Frederick Kempster, aged
twenty-one years, eight feet and two inches tall (and
still growing), weighs 378 pounds, and wears a 22|
size boot. He can span two octaves on a piano, and
lights a cigarette at a street lamp. He might do for
a lookout station or a walking "tank" to scare the
Germans, if furnished with a shrapnel proof casing.
The prohibitionists are going to carry the war into
Quobec, about the only Province which is not in the
way of prohibiting the traffic in intoxicating liquors,
though local option rules in many Quebec municipalities. Representatives of the anti-alcoholic leagues of
Montreal and Quebec and representatives of the Dominion Alliance met in Montreal, recently, and resolved to organize a campaign having for its object
total prohibition in the Province. Should the Provincial Legislature fail to grant the demands of the temperance men at the coming session an endeavor will be
made to induce Montreal, Quebec and other large centres where the liquor inddstry is legalized to enact prohibition by-laws.
A writer in the New York Times makes the following interesting comparisons in regard to the building
of cargo-carrying vessels by Great Britain and her allies as against Germany: "Great Britain has 463 shipyards and engine and boiler shops where marine vessels and their equipment are built; her colonies have
198 and her allies 247, making a grand total of 908.
Germany and her allies have a grand total of 124 such
places. To drydock and repair her warships and vessels of her mercantile marine, Great Britain has 572
drydocks and marine railways, her colonies have 246,
and her allies 253, a grand total of 1,074. Germany
and her allies have 138 such places. Belgium does not
figure on either side. America has 152 shipyards and
marine engine and boiler shops and 239 drydocks and
marine railways."
More than 3,000,000 groiwians of merchant shipping of an flags, types and classes have been destroyed
as a result of submarine activities, floating mines and
uncertain war causes during the period since hostilities
opened. Carefully compiled records, made up by the
Journal of Commerce from all available data, including cable despatches and mail advices, indicate that
the number of merchant ships sunk or otherwise destroyed by the belligerents from the beginning of the
war to October 1 was 1,662, with an approximate aggregate gross tonnage of 3,097,097. Later reports
may and to the figures in tonnage lost recently, owing
to frequent delays in announcing the destruction of
vessels and the inadequate cable service.
Throughout the course of the war Sir Robert Borden and his Government have consistently chosen to
spurn both the assistance and the advice of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and the leaders of the Liberal party. They
have chosen to act, in respect to Canada's participation
in the war, as though all the wisdom and all the patriotism of the nation were embodied in themselves,
and in themselves alone. Not only that, but the Government have shown themselves actually resentful of
everything in the way of constructive criticism from
the other side of the House. Whenever a Liberal has
presumed to express an opinion upon what was proposed, or what was being done in regard to the war,
he has been accused immediately of being actuated by
the meanest of motives; of seeking party advantages;
of breaking a truce to which, on other occasions, Sir
Robert Borden declared he had never agreed.���Toronto Globe.
Opining that, "when Bowser finally realizes that
the people have kicked him out, he no doubt will relinquish the reigns of office and then Mr. Brewster can
get busy, "the Omineca Herald, published at New
Hazelton, B. C., forecasts and animadverts discriminatingly as follows : "One of the important works that
will be considered at an early date is the reorganization of the road department, which has been a disgrace to the Province, and especially in the north.
Thousands of dollars are paid out annually to superintendents and their assistants that can be saved by laying off those office holders until the new system is
ready, If the salaries are only saved during the winter, it will mean much. Later, fully qualified road
men can be appointed to handle the work. It is possible that next season only repair work will be undertaken, and no superintendents are required, as it is
more than possible that local boards will be appointed
to look after each section. It is also the desire that
the road department be taken out of politics and the
records of cost open at all times for inspection." Page 2

Premier-elect Brewster, interviewed at Victoria,
the other day, said that, owing to the delay demanded
by Premier Bowser in resigning, it would hardly be
possible to convene the Legislature before the 1st of
February. While he refused to discuss the personnel
of his Cabinet, Mr. Brewster intimated that he had'
made up his mind regarding its composition, and said
he was all ready to announce the by-elections immediately upon his being called upon to form a Government. It would take eight days from the date of the
issuance of a proclamation for an election, and in some
of the outlying constituencies it might take longer.
With the delay that was occurring in getting started,
it would be a difficult matter, Mr. Brewster said, to
get the departmental estimates and proposed legislation in shape for an early session, which was his
reason for suggesting that the House would probably
convene about the first week in February. No time
would be lost, continued Mr. Brewster, after the
Agent-General's certificates, for which Mr. Bowser
was waiting, arrived. They had been mailed from
London Nov. 3rd, he had been informed by Mr.
Bowser, and, though letters sometimes took five weeks
to reach Victoria from England, Mr. Bowser thought
they would arrive in about fifteen or sixteen days, It
will thus be seen that it will be well toward the end
of November before Mr. Bowser moves hie derailed
freight from the track and gives Conductor Brewster a chance to go ahead.
GOOD - BYE, BOWSER.
To the statement issued by Premier Bowser, at
Victoria, on Sunday last, in which he attempted justification on constitutional grounds for continuing to
hang on to power, the retiring (but oh! so reluctantly)
Premier added a sort of personal appendix, in which
he declared: "I have no regrets to offer in connection with my tenure of office as Premier, either on
behalf of my colleagues or myself." Further, "We
accept defeat in the best possible spirit and bow gracefully to the verdict of the people" (only, like the
policeman in "The Pirates,*'they "don't go!") and
"have nothing but the utmost good wishes towards
them" (the people, and "wish for the Province the
greatest possible success and prosperity under the
incoming Administration, and those of us who remain
in the House will be glad to co-operate with the new
Government in forwarding such legislation as may
seem to be for the common good." Mr. Bowser also
expresses his "deep sense of gratitude" to the people
of Vancouver for electing him "as one of their representatives for the fifth consecutive time" (albeit a bit
down the line), which he considers "an effective
answer to the many malevolent charges" of which he
says he was made the target. Well, good-bye, Mr.
Bowser, we're glad there are no hard feelings; but we
can't exactly give you a "character" from your last
place and we'll feel bound to count the spoons as
soon as you manage to tear yourself away.
HERE AND THERE
This interesting despatch, with an American date
line, referring to the arrival of the German merchant
submarine, Deutschland, on her second   trip   to   the
United States, at New London, Conn.,  last week, appeared in the  daily press:    "Captain Koenig,  of the
merchant submarine, said that Germany intended   to
make the Deutschland a museum after the war, and
charge an admission.    He refused to admit visitors
except the Mayor.    The crew is on shirt leave. Pretty
women almost hugged the sailors and cheered wherever they appeared.   Autographs were demanded.    The
submarine has not started unloading her cargo.    Captain Koenig said that the submarine is the warship  of
tin; futuie.    Battleships were useless."    Comment is
.almost superfluous   except to wonder what  kind   of
leave "shirt leave" is, to marvel at tho  taste  of   the
"pretty women," to observe that Germany will need a
museum foi- a lot of things "after the war," and to remark that British battleships, at any rate, proved they
were not quite useless at the  Battle   of  Jutland, and
that the principal use Germany has made of the submarines so far is for advertising purposes and to murder women  and children, besides   sinking   merchant
vessels.    As to legitimate military or naval use-next
to nothing.

more profitable or more permanent than that represented in her flock and herds. The cows and heifers
in this country are the potential parents of a product
that is as valuable to the Dominion and to the Empire
as the traditional golden egg. As a war measure
the British Government has already imposed restrictions against the slaughter of calves and females. Jt
has been felt that Canada did not need the adoption
of legislation as a practical measure to obtain this end
It must be pointed out, however, that we are continuously facjng the danger involved in the loss of large
numbers of good beef calves, In the slaughter of very
many breedy and serviceable heifers and cows, and in
the exportation annually from the country of thousands of stockers and feeders."

Canadians Called to Navy.
Capt. the Hon. Rupert Guiness, accompanied by Lady Gwendolen Guiness,
arrived in Vancouver early this week, in
pursuance of his mission to secure 5,000
men in Canada for the Imperial British
Navy, 2,000 of which are required to be
the Old Country by the end of this year.
A stirring appeal by Capt. Guiness, at a
large assemblage of the Canadian Club in
the Hotel Vancouver Auditorium, resulted in the formation of a strong navy
recruiting committee in the Terminal
City.
The Everett Invasion.
A remarkable illustration of defiance of
law and order and the free use of firearms, with most serious aud tragic results, was given at Everett, Wash., on
Sunday last. An organized attempt of
250 I. W. W. men by steamer, the Verona, from Seattle to land at Everett, in
face of peremptory orders to the contrary from Sheriff McRae and a large
posse of deputy sheriffs and specials
drawn up on the wharf, precipitated the
trouble.
The firing was begun by the I.W.W.
invaders from the deck of the steamer,
and soon became fast and furious, about
a thousand shots being exchanged within a short time, which resulted in seven
men being killed or fatally wounded, between forty and fifty more or less seriously wounded, anil an unknown number drowned by jumping from the deck
of the steamer into the Sound, to escape
the hail of bullets from the shore.
The invaders gave up the attempt and
the steamer hastened back to Seattle
with the dead and wounded. The steamer was met by the Seattle police and a
detachment of the National Guard, who
took tbe dead, five in number, to the
morgue, the wounded to the city hospital, and the unwounded to the city
jail. Forty-one I. W W. men were
taken prisoners at Seattle from a second
steamer which did not get to Everett,
but came back with the Verona, and I.
W W. men generally were put under
arrest in Seattle.
The trouble was the result of a long
contest between the Independent Workers of the World, so-called, and tlie citizens of Kverett over the right to hold
street meetings in that city, and grew
out of a shingle weaver's strike some
months ago. The Seattle I. W. W.
called for 2,000 volunteers for the Everett expedition.    The end is not yet.

Scott's Great Get-Away.
There would be a small fortune in a
three-reel movie film of J. T. Scott's
sensational get-away from Vancouver
and Seattle, last week, after he had been
brought to Vancouver, arraigned for
election offences, remanded, and let out
on bail. Allowed to go over to Seattle,
on some pretext, accompanied by four
detectives ���for a day and night shift of
two each���he managed to give these
''watchful waiters" the slip, up iu the
top story of a Seattle sky-scraper; slid
into au elevator, whicli he locked; de-
sceuded to the ground in a jiffy; jumped
into a high powered motor awaiting,
and round the corner and out of sight in
a flash, before the breathless sleuths got
down; not been seen since. Left written
confession of something or other, with
Joe Martin, Vancouver.
Police Magistrate Shaw, of Vancouver,
handed down his decision in the case of
Scott, Thursday morning, declining to
go on with the trial or permit Scott's
confession to be submitted as evidence
until accused had been re-arrested and
brought before the court.

traction at the Edison tq-day ami to-morrow. Though "Theyuestof Life" stars
these celebrated dancers, who have the
distinction of having overcome the prejudice of the Queen of England against
the tango, it is distinctly dramatic, with
a gripping theme.
For Monday and Tuesday, the celebrated stage beauty, Edna Goodrich,
will be seen in the famous Player play,
"The House of Lies," in which the marriage market is drastically portrayed and
exposed.
It Looks Like Wilson.
The Presidential election in the United
States, held pn Tuesday last, was sp
closp ip its results that it is not certain
yet whether Wilson ihall succeed himself
or Hughes oust him from the Presidency.
They are still wrangling over "doubtful
States" and late returns. One day it's
Hughes, the next Wilson, then Hughes,
but it looks like Wilson, at latest accounts, having a sufficient majority of
the electoral college to hold his own
when the last vote has been counted,
and recounted, if need be.
City Market.

Putting on over 75,000 points oil the
last day, New Westminster workers in
the V. M. C. A. membership campaign
made a whirlwind finish in the weed's
contest on Saturday, beating Vancouver
by 108,613 points to 77,025. This is the
third successive time that the locals have
beaten Vancouver in this animal campaign. The local teams gathered at the
Y. M. C. A. on Saturday evening, and
there was great rejoicing as the returns
came in . The most satisfactory feature
of the local campaign was the large number of new members added, and the sub?
Stantial amount of money in cash and
promises received.
The team scores of the local workers
in the Y. M. C. A. membership contest
were as follows : B. F, Casselmaii, 20,-
143; P. Smith, 17,505; C. Butler, 16,273;
D. Whiteside, 14,603; W. A. Filers, 10,-

According to a letter from Dr. T. B,
Green, of this city, who is attached to
