Victoria, May 18.
sei' has put in his defense for the
action of the Government in permitting the Pacific Great Eastern to
spend proceeds from the sale of Government guaranteed bonds up to the
full amount of the bonds. The eou-
trai-t between the company and the
Government specified that the company was only to receive thu money
in tlie proportion the amount of work
it did period by period bore to the
total amount, of the work to be aone,
that is to say, if the company did half
the work in one year it is to receive
half the money, however, the company has received all the money and
has not finished the work.
H. C. Brewster the other day!
brought in a resolution upon this
subject, recommending that prosecution be started under the Criminal
Code against the Government officials responsible for the infraction
,of the contract and the statutes. The
House voted down his resolution on
a  party division.
Premier Bowser made an able exposition of the reasons why the Gov
the man whom the Liberals claim
they have been very anxious to crosu-
exaniine on tlie stand, gave evidence
here today.
Sullivan said he knew of the proposed visits of tlie pluggers to Van-
i couver early in the week of the Van-
Premier  Bow-jcouver by-election. He got word from
Tom Carroll in Seattle, Carroll being
in charge of one of the parties.
Sullivan went down to Seattle to
try and stop the movement and explain that, t'he impersonators were being deceived, when they said that
they were to vote for Macdonald the
WET candidate, for as a matter of;
i fact Macdonald was opposed to the i
WET interests,
Sullivan met Jack White in Seattle I
I and  warnen  him  that  he  would  get :
; into  trouble  if  he  took  pluggers to !
j Vancouver. He also saw Monty White
j coming over to Vancouver with some '
men  ou  the  boat  on  the  Thursday
! night  before election, and  gave him
the same warning, in a conversation
i which the witness said was certainly
j not of the parlor variety.
Then Sullivan sent two wireless
i messages to F. W. Welsh, one of the
j Conservative candidates in Vancou-
j ver, telling him that pluggers were
I arriving by boat and train. Jack
i White met the Friday morning boat,
I but  disappeared   when   he  saw   Sul-

SHIP-BUILDING AID.
It was to lie expected that differences of opinion would arise over
the Government bill in aid to shipbuilding. There are people who object to any assistance being given to
ship-building, -nine who do not see
the necessity of developing a shipbuilding Industry on this coast, and
others who would prefer the continuance of the present inadequate system unilcr which ship-owners living
outside of Canada, not only get the
money | aid for freights in and out
of British Columbia', but can control
Ihose Freights as tbey see fit, to the
distribution of freighl money among
local owni rs and a local control of
freiiit and -!::pping facilities. Brit-
is ilumbia built ships. British Columbia owned ships,, and the payment
to British Columbia owners of the
monej i a -net] In carrying British Co-
Inmbiit 'iir^-."-: what the Government measure aims al promoting. We
oo not suggest, and we do not sup-
si   the ' lovernmeni  imagim s that
they  «ill   be  fully ai iplished  by
the bill now befon the House, which,
as we understand It, is Intended as a
first step in thai direction. lis object Is the Inauguration of a new industry, a new line of investments, a
new brunch of business looking to the
future. We hope that the result of
the adoption of this policy will be
that the time will Mime, and at no
distant day. when ship-building and
ship-owning here will ne,ed no Government stimulus; but we are dealing with things as they are today. It
is highly desirable that ship-building
shall be inaugurated here. There
never was, and there is not likely to
be again, so auspicious an npportun-
ity for such an inauguration.

More and Save More
Tlie Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting Une you may be in the producing line. Labour
is limited—all the more reason to do more than ever
before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that
you can produce. Every litt'.s helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you
cannot produce as much as you would like, produce nil you can. Work with the right
spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more
you produce the more you can save.    Producing and saving are war-service.

Dropped To Five Cents.
There has been a sharp decline in
the price of halibut. On Wednesday
several catches, aggregating 155,000
pounds, were sold to local buyers at
Ave cents a pound. This was a cent
and a-half lower than the price realized on the previous day, and the
lowest since last January.
This price, however, is in excess
of what is, being paid at other coast
points, and is much higher than what
prevailed at the same season in past
years.
The arrivals were: Soya, 4,000;
Star, 18,000; Niagara, 20,000; Vesta,
28,000; and Magnolia, 36,000. These,
with Tuesday's arrivals, made an aggregate of 155,000. The Agnes B
