NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, FRIDAY, Aug. 18, 1916.
Number 24
THE OSTRICH ACT.
With what silly and shallow drivel do the Bowser
papers throughout the country impose upon the good
sense and good nature of the reading public in all their
references to the serious and vital issues necessarily
raised by the Liberal leader in his writ against Attorney-General Bowser ! Here is an example from one
of the most faithful echoes of Government- "arguments," the Nelson News: "The Brewster writ would
make the courts, instead of the people, the supreme
arbiter in the affairs of British Columbia."
This is another instance of "putting our head in the
sand," Such as Mr. Justice Morrison rebuked the Attorney-General's attorney for, when the matter came
up in the courts, the week before last, at Victoria.
The Nelson News and the whole tribe of quibbling
apologists for the Government know perfectly well
that the courts necessarily are the "supreme arbiters"
when it comes to interpreting and passing upon the
constitutionality or legality of aets of the Legislature
or Government. It is also perfectly well known by
the tricky side-steppers, with Premier and Attorney-
General Bowser at their head, that Mr. Brewster did
not create any difficulty by the issue of his writ that
was created by the incompetent and crooked muddling
of the Bowser Government, which has undermined the
whole basis of constitutional government in the Province.
Mr. Brewster has merely recognized the diseased
and dangerous condition, and has courageously and
patriotically taken the necessary steps to have the
matter probed and the remedy applied before the evil
has gone any farther, instead of doing the ostrich act
with the maker of the mischief, who, paraphrasing the
rebuke of the Court, is putting his head in the sand
and pretending to, know nothing whatever about it.
Syc-h tactics have resulted in deferring for ar short
time the clearing up of the whole matter and the resolving of the doubt which the Government's actions
have cast upon the validity of most of the legislation
of last, session and also upon the constitution of the
Legislature about to be elected; but these matters, to
quote once more the Justice of the Supreme Court before whom Mr. Brewster's preliminary motion came,
will "have to be thrashed out" and carried to a final
and authoritative decision.
The reason is obvious. v Otherwise, the doubt,
caused not by Mr. Brewster's writ, but by Mr. Bowser's dereliction, would continue to hang over Provincial legislation and the Provincial Legislature, which
would be open to attack through the courts at anv time
by any interest that might consider itself adversely
affected by any legislative enactment. Then there is
the Qther feature of the writ, on which a decision is no
less urgently demanded���whether this or any Government can with impunity pay out million's of the public
moneys, or any sum, contrary to the expressed will of
the Legislature���in violation of statute law. Truly,
as the Court has declared, these questions will have to
be thrashed out, "Jt ia due to the people that they
should be thrashed out."
.-.��*-
BOWSER THE BLUFFER.
Premier BoSvser is a magnificent bluffer���you've
got to hand it to him for that! At hia meeting, last
week, at Fernie where, by the way, even according
to the Conservative Vancouver Province report, Mr.
Bowser was most unmercifully heckled--he replied to
one of his tormentors, who gave him unasked the
cheerful advance information that he was going to be
beaten in Vancouver : "Well, I am not trying to run
a safe seat, as Mr. Brewster is. I have a majority of
four thousand to pull down in Vancouver, but that is
the only seat I am going to seek the support of the
public in. * * * If I am beaten Iri Vancouver, I
propose to go down with Mags Hying."
Bravo, Bowser ! Just what sort of a show Premier
Bowser has of being elected in Vancouver (or anywhere else in the Province, for that matter), may be
imagined from the reception his Ministerial candidate,
Tisdall, got in the by-election, last February, backed
as he was by all the Bowserian eloquence, influence,
and peculiar campaign methods of which the Premier
is master, focussed on one constituency. Add to that
the scathing exposure which the Bowser Government
and party have had since: By the Opposition in the
Legislature; in connection with the Government manipulated "plugging" scandal, which is coming to the
home roost more balefully every day; not to mention
the sordid stew of Government patronage and jobbery
uncovered in the more recent Vancouver School Board
inquisition; and giving due consideration, finally, to
the fact that two prominent Conservatives of Vancouver Robert Cassidy, K. C, and ex-Mayor Townley
have practically repudiated Bowserism by seeking the
suffrages of the electors of Vancouver as an ti-Bowser
Conservative candidates ! Why, Premier Bowser, or
any of the Bowser ticket, has about as much chance
of election in Vancouver-as th;; proverbial snowball
has of preserving its Identity for ten minutes in
well !   The hottest place that one can imagine.
Magnificent bltilier!    Yes,   that's what  we   s:Jd.
But, when all's said and done, Premier Bowser might
EXPLOITING PATRIOTISM.
If good old Samuel Johnson had lived in these stirring times, he would have been able to utter with
added emphasis his famous dictum that "patriotism is
the last refuge of scoundrels." It is positively disgraceful, nauseating and insulting the way -self-confessed Johnsonian "scoundrels" of a certain political
stripe are advertising at once their own shamelessness
and conscious poverity of any merit or standing with
the people by prostituting the sacred name of patriotism to the paltry and miserable business of trying to
stimulate and deodorize a political cause and party so
inherently weak and rotten that it must needs be supported and disinfected by such means.
This unblushing "patriotism" exploitation, it will
not have been forgotten, was begun in the late session of the Legislature, when impudent and insulting
insinuations were thrown out that enlisting for service
at the front followed party lines in the Province, and,
as the election grows dangerously nearer, and Government realization of impending defeat on their merits
becomes excruciatingly keener, the dirty and contemptible work is speeded up, even to the length of whin-
ning editorial and display articles in the party press,
pointing out that five out of forty-five Bowser candidates are wearing the khaki, as a reason why the Bowser candidates generally ought to be elected and the
Bowser Government returned again to power !
All honor to the wearers of the khaki whose sincerity, devotion, and singlemindedness does honor to the
uniform- -and of the vast majority. Liberals or Conservatives, though it is an insult to introduce the political
division at all, this may be said���but the vile exploitation being practiced by si discredited political party
suggests, and there are circumstances which add color
to it, that some at- least of the much be-advertised
khaki-clad candidates, whose "firing line" has been
solely political so far, are at least consenting parties
to and hope to be political beneficiaries of that contemptible prostitution of patriotism that has become
so rampant and rank in Provincial so-called Conservative circles of late.
JEKYLL AND HYDE.
Attorney-General Bowser has the habit of trying to
serve two masters���himself and the public���so strongly ingrained in his disposition and character that he
simply can't help it. He is Attorney-General (attorney for the people) and also head of the Government
(whose business is supposed to be solely concerned
with the people's interests), and yet, as head of his
private legal firm, he is the paid agent of such railway
concerns as the C. N. R. and P. G. E., whom, as has
been shown, he has served far better than the people
���at the people's expense! ��� having actually robbed the people of millions, contrary to law, for the
benefit of these private clients.
# Among his other clients of the sort, too numerous
to enumerate here, was the late Dominion Trust,
which, "by and with the advice and consent" of the
Attorney-General of the Province, in his dual capacity,
was enabled to "do" the thousands of unfortunate
victims in this Province and elsewhere, who excusably
supposed that a "Trust" company, and one moieover
ostentatiously advertised as 0 K'd by the Provincial
Government, was a concern to be "trusted." The same
Government 0 K'd the piratical exploitations of the
Vancouver Island collieries by Mackenzie & Mann,
which robbed the British investor of millions, gave the
Province a bad name from which it will not recover
for years, was chiefly responsible for the serious coal
strike of a few years ago on the Island, and has not d
little to do with the continued high price of coal.
It will surprise no one, therefore, to learn that Premier and Attorney-General Bowser has been caught at
the same double game again -this time as a director
of the Wallace Shipyards. Ltd., Vancouver, under
charter to obtain Government assistance in shipbuilding.    When found out, Mr. Bowser hastened to "resign
in view of the elections saying he had quite forgotten he was a director ! No apologies, necessary, Mr.
Bowser; people know by this time you can't help it,
and they intend to give you permanent leave of absence to attend strictly to your own business and that
of your private clients ���to rounding out the handsome
fortune which you more than laid the foundation of by
playing the exceedingly profitable double role of a po-
litical Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.	
just as well bluff it out in Vancouver as. anywhere
else. It's the obvious thing for him to do. By running in only one constituency, he saves losing a second
election deposit. And he throws himself theatrically
on the mere;- of one constituency. But it will not
avail. Premier Bowser is too old and hardened and
monumental a political offender to be let off from his
just dues on any sentimental grounds. Political morality alone the highest and best interests of the
Pr wince for all time, and the effect on other Provinces
���demands that he should get all that is coming to him
at this time, and get it in an exemplary manner. Like
Richard III. on Bosworth Field, Premier Bowser is
riding to his final fall���and, like Richard III., he
knows it,
HERE AND THERE.    '
The Bowser Government candidate who is trying
to save Fernie to the party after a term or two of Hon.
R. W. Ross, driven out to seek a political home elsewhere, is appropriately enough named Uphill. But he
hasn't got any steeper job than has the evicted Minister of Lands in trying to persuade Prince (Fort)
George to permanently adopt him, with the assistance
of an accommodating vote-splitter���Gillet.
Great is the power of the press. The B.C.E.R. Co.
is paying sincere tribute to that fact bj�� issuing a four-
page weekly midget, called "The Buzzer," of its own,
distributed by means of "Take One" holders in the
cars. It is, of course, devoted to B.C.E.R. matters
(the number before us particularly boosts the Vancouver exhibition) and, incidentally, it may be presumed,
will favorably present the point of view of the company in any debatable questions that may arise as between that corporation and the people.
Counsel for the German Government in the case of
the prize ship Appam, which was awarded to her British owners by a recent decision of Judge Waddill in
the United States District Court, have filed formal petition for appeal to the Supreme Court, which was allowed. A supersedeas bond for $2,000,000 required by
thjs court was given, signed by Lieut. Hans Berg, the
prize master who brought the vessel in, and L. M. von
Schilling, German consul. It was furnished by five
American bonding companies, who divided a premium
of $20,000.
Some confirmation of the Winnipeg report of last-
week that a Dominion general election at a not very
distant date is in contemplation is contained in an Ottawa despatch of Monday last, which says: "Sir
Robert Borden has definitely abandoned his trip to
England this year," and adds: "With his trip to Great
Britain off, Sir Robert plans to visit Western Canada."
The last week in September is given as the probable
date of the trip, and it is said he will address "one or
two big patriotic meetings in each of the four Western
Provinces."
The devotion of W. P. Macken, Bowser Conservative candidate for Chilliwack, to a fallen and rather unworthy idol is beautiful���if nothing else. In the excess of his touching and mistaken hero-worship, the
Chilliwack standard-bearer in an evidently realized
lost cause, said, in a speech, the other day, as reported
by the Progress (after a climax of panegyrics): "He
would rather go down to defeat a hundred times following Mr. Bowser than win without him." Never
mind the hundred times, Mr. Macken, once will do���-
and it will also "do for" Bowser.
Following his severe condemnation by the Meredith-
Duff fuse inquiry commission, Col. John Wesley Allison has had his "halo" taken away from him--the
complimentary title of "Colonel," to wit, conferred
upon him by his worshipful admirer, Sir Sam Hughes,
to whom.the gallant manipulator of war contracts
owed the enviable strategic status that enabled him to
command such fat commissions and rake-offs. It must
have broken Sir Sam's heart to have been compelled
to send the Ministerial scapegoat away into the wilderness, bearing not only the sins of the Shell Committee,
but denuded of his military nimbus.
We thought we were reading a patent medicine
adv. in the Columbian, the other day, but it turned out
to be a thinly disguised hymn of praise of the Provincial Government, on the seductively sedative subject,
"Promoting Agriculture." Made one think of lying
down under a tree in the good old summer time, long
ago, and listening to the drowzy lullaby of a buzzing
bumble-bee, until one fell asleep and dreamed that we
were living undej a beautifully paternal and benevolent Government, every member of which wore a halo,
in a sort of glorified fairyland known as Colony Farm,
where there were nice things called Agricultural
Credits, with the store tickets where they were stolen
still attached, and Pure Bred Stock, that somehow had
strayed back from Price Ellison's corral. And
long vistas of Dry Farming���very dry, and Irrigation -not too wet, and Railways hauling Produce to Market through Fertile Valleys. And ���
but then we awoke ! And it was all a dream and a
pipe dream at that! And the bee still buzzing in the
Columbian bonnet. Same old "hard times,"and high
cost of living. Same old sending of twenty or thirty
million dollars a year outside of the Province for "promoting agriculture" elsewhere. Same old Bowser
Government, with halos all awry, and very haggard ���
going to execution ! Which, somehow, for the people,
was the one cheerful and hopeful note in the whole
scenario. Page 2

A CONFIDENTIAL TALK.
With this month. The Pacific Canadian will complete the sixth month of its publication. As announced
in its salutatory, early in March last, it entered the
journalistic lists to supply a needed corrective to the
pernicious one-sidedness that had too long obtained, in
this part of the Province particularly, in the discussion
of public issues of a political nature especially, which
had culminated, as was pointed out, in the scandal and
menace of an absdlutely one-sided Legislature, made
subservient at will by an unscrupulous and power-besotted Government to subvert the people's rights and
liberties and betray their interests.
The immediate task to hand, as we stated, in which
this paper hoped to be able to assist, however humbly,
was "the work of political regeneration so well begun" in the Province through the by-elections which
had then but lately been held, but which work, as we
noted at the time, "is yet to be finished in the general
elections," the date of which it was impossible to predict at that time. A further, carrying-on work in the
process of political regeneration, that we suggested
the necessity of, was the cure of the "deep seated
causes, * * * if we would avoid the recurrence of
such abnormal excrescences on the body politic" as the
Legislature and Government referred to, "and generally cleanse and clarify the fountains and currents of
our political and civic life."
This was and is, admittedly, a pretty large order.
and. without arrogating any exclusive mission or commission in this respect, or affecting the possibility of
doing more than our "bit," The Pacific Canadian���
with the limitations imposed by the "hard times" and
local business conditions, which have precluded adequate support for a second newspaper enterprise, even
in its incipient, stages���has endeavored to fulfil the
promise of its commencement, and will be able, at the
least, to carry to completion its share of the first
specific work it set about to assist, culminating in the
Provincial general election, set for the 14th of September, one day less than four weeks hence.
There will be no little satisfaction and compensation in that -to have been able to round out the first
stage and to be "in at the death" and be privileged to
assist in writing the epitaph of the old, obsolete, and
un lamented order of persons and things political,
which in passing will clear the way for the new order,
mark the opening of the new era, for which the Province has been looking hopefully and longingly for some
time. While a great and pregnant victory will thus
have been achieved, eternal vigilance will continue to
be the price of liberty. The defeated hosts of reaction
and private greed as opposed to the public good, which
are ubiquitous ,in some embodiment, may be expected
to prepare for the counter attack, and, if the forces of
progress, freedom and reform should relax, instead of
consolidating their gaini, the contest would soon have
to be fought all over again.
In this continued fight for freedom, progress, and
good government���and the Provincial is not the only
field; there are both the smaller and the larger spheres
an untrammelled and independent press is a prime
essential. Strangle or corrupt the press, and the people are soon enslaved, first blinded, and then despoiled,
as has been witnessed in this and other fields, if a
press is not actually corrupt, it is a serious menace to
thi! public weal to have only a one-sided press. The
remedy is with the people themselves, who, by taking
thought, can support and maintain the press they
want, and make it what they will, to maintain their
interests, instead of a press whose too often thinly disguised motive and mission is to make the people's interests and through the people themselves subservient to private, corporate, or party gain.
tal exports, however, only 38 per cent, went to the
United States, and 59 per cent, to the United Kingdom."
The first sentence in this quotation evidently should
have read: "Canada continues to be the United
States' best customer.'' We are not finding fault with
Canada, under a Conservative Government, doing
three-quarters of her buying in the United States, and
only one-seventh in the Mother Country, while the
situation is measurably reversed when it comes to selling our goods. We are merely calling attention to the
manifest brazen hypocrisy and dishonesty of the "no
truck or trade with the Yankees" election cry on
which our Conservative friends at Ottawa largely won
the last election. After four or five years of power,
we have the result���75 per cent, truck or trade with
the Yankees; 14 per cent, with Great Britain ! The
jug-handled trade situation with the United States,
the Liberals proposed to( correct, by enabling Canadians to sell something there. But, no, that was
traitorousness to the protected Canadian jobber and
miller. The Liberals, who gave the "British preference," against Conservative opposition, proposed to
increase it, to enable the Mother Country to sell
us more. But, no. that was high treason! to the
protected Canadian manufacturer.
The degenerate political congeners in British Columbia of those high-minded Ottawa patriots and no
one denies that the latter, at any rate, possess a real
patriotism, apart from their contemptible resort to the
counterfeit -are not scrupling, even in war time, to
befoul "the old flag" and the sacred name of patriotism by prostituting both to base partisan ends. We
have seen the essential shallowness, meanness, and hypocrisy of such tactics exposed in the revealing light
of events.    Let us not forget!
LEST WE FORGET.
As illustrating the inherent insincerity and humbug of all flag-waving, patriotism-exploiting arguments, to which a certain political party is particularly
prone, it is interesting to recall, just now, the "No
truck or trade with the Yankees" catch-cry which was
made to do such good-service by the trade restriction-
ists in the last Dominion general election.
Recent trade returns issued at Ottawa, giving Canada's aggregate trade for the twelve months ending
May of this year, show, of course, abnormal increases,
in exports principally, to Great Britain and France
chiefly, on account of the war. But, making all due
allowance for abnormal war conditions, this concluding
paragraph of the Ottawa trade statement is, at least,
significant: "The United States continues to be Canada's best customer. Of the Dominion's total imports,
71 per cent, came from across the border, and only 14
per cent from the United Kingdom.    Of Canada's to-

It was the Germans, says the London Daily Telegraph, who really discovered the possibilities of the
British Empire, and down to the eve of the war were
using them for their own ends. "They had obtained
control of practically all its base metals; they were
getting a firm grip on its coal and oil; they were influencing its financial policy and its politics. German
agents, it is now known, were the agents of the Imperial Government, which subsidised and encouraged
their activities and was not above consulting them in
moulding the fiscal and commercial policy of the Empire. These conditions, inimical to the health, safety
and independence of the British peoples, ought not to
be renewed when the war closes."

Shops Regulation By-law Still  a Very
Live Subject-And There are Others
Which Cause Aldermen to Lose Sleep
There  were   no   vacant   seats   at the
municipal "round table" when the  city
Solons assembled, last Monday night, to
wrestle with the accumulated  problems
of  a  week in   civic   government.    And
there
me
were   some    problems
"believe
1" as the boys would say. Bauqno's
ghost never bobbed up more persistently
and disquietingly than the Early Closing
or Shops Regulation By-law, involved
inextricably at some troublesome points
with the Saturday Half Holiday Act.
Then there was the "special survey" of
the city "horrible muddle," as one Alderman termed it; a double-barrelled
Coquitlam dam, timber reserve logging,
conundrum; another case of illicit aud
surreptitious fire service water connection; and a peremptorily threatened lawsuit, which is to be defended. And there
were others.
Communications.
To begin at the beginning, after the
formal adoption of the minutes, the following formidable list of communications
was read hy Acting City Clerk Thomas,
and dealt with seriatim:
From the City Solicitors, inclosing
copy of judgment of Railway Connnis
sion ordering the 6. N. R. Co. to build
a steel bridge 24 feet wide, with six foot
sidewalks, on each side, on the North
road. Received aud filed for reference.
From Eric Hamber, of the B, C. Mills,
Timber and Trading Co., on behalf of
Mrs. John Hendry and family, thanking
the Council for the tribute paid to the
memory of the late Mr. Hendry. Received and filed.
From Fred Davis, offering his services
as auctioneer for the tax sale, and asking
to meet the Finance Committee in connection with same. Received and referred to Finance Commiitee to report.
From the City Solicitor, re Coquitlam
dam, stating that, on the 18th of January last, they had received a letter from
the Comptroller of Lands, Ottawa, cog*
veying the information that the city's
protest against logging operations being
permitted on the reserve was receiving
attention, since which nothing had been
received.
Aid. Bryson pointed out that this was
not a satisfactory answer--no "answer at
all. They had asked the City Solicitor
to communicate with the Minister of the
Interior and ascertain why the work of
clearing the land by the B.C.E.R Co.
was not carried out.
Aid. Goulet remarked that there were
two different matters on which they wanted information. Thev had also asked the
Ottawa Government to protect the city's
water supply against logging operations
in the forest reserve round Coquitlam
Lake. We should know definitely what
to expect in the future.
On motion of Aid. Eastman and Goulet, the communication was received and
filed.
From the City Solicitors, re Shops Regulation By-law, interpreting and explaining certain clauses of the by-law,
which in effect closes all ice cream, fruit
and candy stores at 6:15, but where there
are restaurants in connection these are
exempt.
On motion of Aid. Goulet and Bryson,
the communication was received and referred to the Committee of the Whole
Council.
Aid. Johnston suggested that the City
Solicitor should be present when the
Council meet in committee on this
question.
From the City Solicitor, stating that
the Registrar of Titles desired the city
to complete the special survey of the
city, begun some years ago, and have it
finally passed by the Attorney-General.
It was pointed out that it would be
necessary to re-number the blocks acrosn
the city, so that there may be no two.
blocks of the same number.
After some discussion, in which Aid.
Eastman described the "special survey"
as a horrible muddle, making it impossible to follow up the title of lots, which
was corroborated by other Aldermen, the
communication was, on motion, referred
to the Finance Committee, to report as
to the cost of Completing; the survey.
From the secretary of the Trades and
Labor Council, respecting the action of
the Council in refusing permission to the
Charles A. Slaney Coffee Co. to sell
goods at the City Market.
On motion received, and Clerk instructed to reply that Council could not
see its way to depart from the policy
hitherto pursued in such cases.
Aid. Goulet, chairman of the Market
Committee, said the committee, after
consideration, had come to the conclusion that it was nol conducive lo the advantage of the market or the business
interests of the cits- to encourage the sale
of finished products al the market, but
the committee had decided to recommend granting to the Charles A. Slaney
Coffee C<>. the privilege of displaying
their goods at the market.
Aid. Johnston approved, but pointed
out that more care would have to be exercised in future to insure that outside
peddlers did not retail finished articles,
such as razors, jewelry, etc., on the
market.
From Ed. Walmsley, asking thai Lot
3, sub-division of Lot 47, suburban block
5, be connected with the West End sewer, and stating he is prepared to enter
into a similar agreement to that now existing between the city and hiinsell respecting other property owned by him
as to the expense of this connection.
Also from the City Engineer, reporting
favorably on this request. Received anil
referred to the Hoard of Works to act.
From F. Hurudall, asking consideration, in proposed amendment to the
Shops Regulation By-law, for the sale of
photo goods after 6:15 on ordinary week
days and after 9:30 Friday night.
On motion of Aid. Eastman and Dodd,
received and referred to Committee of
the Whole to consider.
From J. W. Rogers, asking that connection be made (rom the basement of
his house, at 227 Third st., to the gully
tank on Hartco St., and agreeing to bear
expense   incurred.     Received   and   re
ferred to Board of Works to act. '
From the City Solicitors, re Dolphin
vs. New Westminster, enclosing copy of
letter from Adam S. Johnson, claiming
$900 compensation for injuries alleged
to have been sustained by his client, Mrs.
Dolphin, and threatening issuance of
writ if not settled by Tuesday, 15th inst.
On motion of Aid. Jardineaud Bryson,
the City Solicitors, in accordance with
previous advice, were instructed to defend action.
From A. J. Bowell, License Inspector,
asking instructions as to renewal of restaurant licence to Ira Reid, 752 Columbia
st. Received, and instructions given to
renew licence.
From F. C. Campbell, Government
Agent, re old tank situated near Fire
Hall No. 5, stating same would receive
attention.    Received and filed.

Coffee Co. (or permission to display
goods at the market be granted. Adopted.
Aid. Bryson, chairman of the Finance
Committee, reported, recommending that
the time for advertising the tax sale be

taxes will be received up to the 31st

of advertising, etc. Ratepayers taking
advantage of this extension must make

Aid. McAdam, chairman of the Health
Committee, reported, recommending:
That dairies be allowed to scald utensils
