U:20  $1.00 PER   YEAK  NTAOttY ON'   KN-COXSTKUOTIOX  -.4  m  Mr. I<\ 13. i-'itueey. local 'representative- in the House at Ottawa, strongly supported the resolution of Mr.  ' Michael Steele, Al. P. "That in' thc  opinion of tin's House, it is essential  for the future national welfare of  Canada that, appropriate measure;.; be  taken by (ho Government to (it ami  .propuira all immigrants of alien origin for assuming the duties and responsibilities of Canadian Citi/.'/n-  ship."  Mr. Stacey spoke in pari, as follows, tho report, being taken from  the  oflicial   Mansard:  "The war has taught us among  other things thc .quality and character of our .citizenship has a great deal  to (lo with the spirit that will- he  manifest when the nation is in daug-  er���������the spirit that is necessary for  the perpetuation of our national life  In the closing years of the'last century, and indeed until the war began, it would seem that thc only  consideration in immigration was the  question of numbers; how many can  wo induce to come to thc Dominion  of Canada? 1 think today we are not'  emphasizing quantity, the tendency  is rather to emphasize quality.  "In order to understand the matter aright it seems ��������� to me that we  should be agreed at any rate upon  one thing, namely the viewpr/int  from which this whole subject of ini-  mfgration should be considered. In a  word, what is the ultimate object of  immigration to this country? What  have we really in mind? What is  the goal inview?.,,;'-lnj;he last analy^'  sis we niiglit'agree"that the national  welfare is the fundamental consideration and that any policy that has  to do with immigration should have  in view not sectional welfare or local  interest but the national welfare and  prosperity. If that be so, and I  think possibly Ave could agree upon  that, our aim in securing of immigration will become somewhat clearer. We will realize that it is not  necessary to relieve the old nations  of any surplus population which they  might have. It may do that from their  standpoint they will certainly favor  a policy which will relieve them of  their surplus population.  "I1 believe it is true that we have  not less than 100.000 illiterates in  the three prairie provinces. In those  three prairie provinces there are  homes where the English or French  language is never spoken. The war  revealed to us the fact that there  were large communities that were  absolutely un-Canadianized, communities consisting of men and women who were living the. identical  life which we supposed they would  leave behind, but which, on the other  hand. they have brought with them  and which has been perpetuated for  one geneartion, and perhaps in some  cases, two.  "If it is true that some of our  foreign element did not give us thc  co-operation that we expected during the war is it after all to be  wondered at? Have we real ground  for surprise? Whose fault is it?  ���������largely our own fault for we took  vary little if any means to Canadian-  ize the people who came to us from  foreign countries. 1 believe that while  Ave cannot undo the- past it should  hereafter be recognized as an essential of our immigration policy that  certain basic principles must be accepted by'every man who comes to-  this country. I would give him to  undersland that he must accept the  fact of,a Canadian school system;  that while he may not be able fo  speak English or French himself his  family must attend such a public  sihool in the iommunity and learn to  speak' either-one of  uages of the nation. There must be  no exemption from the public school  of the country being "established in  his community and each of the members of his family of school age must  take their places in it.  "Then again there are certain  fundamental laws of this country  which   we  must  recognize;   there  is  PltOHlillTION  Victoria,  TO   THE   FRONT  It.  (!.,     April   10.���������Prohibition   lo omed  large in  the  House  this   week   when   the  debate  on   the  motion for the second reading of the  bill   to  amend   the  existing  act   was  continued. Mr, Bowser had his opportunity to    t'icjcept    that,    "challenge''  which   the   Attorney-General,   in   his  speech  the week ibefore,  had  issued  to   the  opposition1 leader  daring   the  latter  to  repeat on   the   floor  of  the  House  the  charges  he  had   made at  various   meetings     throughout     the  Province.-      An  effort,  was   made  to.  force the opposition leader to speak  at a late hour on  Wednesday night,  evidently with the idea that the press-  publicity of his speech would thereby  be curtailed or there would  not    be  present a "gallery".       The fact was  that  crowded   galleries     heard     Mr.  Bowser's   effort,   the   people   waiting  until well after the mid-night hour.  But it happened  that the night    on  which the opposition    leader    spoke  was the same on which the Attorney-  General, like Achilles, was sulking in  his tent.    Despite his challenge, the  'attorney-general    was    not    in    the  House to see Mr. Bowser pick up his  gage of battle and cast it back.      Mr.  Bowser's speech was    temperate    in  tone   though.' he  did  not   mince   his j  words when dealing with the failure j  of the attorney-general to enforce the j  liquor   regulations.    He  scouted   the I  plea of the other that the act passed j  in  1916  by  thc.late government did '  not, permit  wide enough   powers  to  prevent the "prescription evil ',    and  he  quoted. th.er.efro.m -to���������. show._-thcre.  was" ample "machinery'   existing    for  prosecutions   of   those   medics i   men  who  contravened  the act.     Had   the  attorney-general, he averred, undertaken  one  or  two' prosecutions      of  medical  men" who violated  the  law,  the result would have ueena wholesome thing and the spectacle of the  government  doing a  liquor business  aggregating  $1,579,000   with  a  pru-  fit of over half a million in a prohibition province and in a commodity  which, the law required, should - be.  sold only for medicinal' purposes,  would never have been seen. The  "tlu", Mr. Bowser .asserted, was a  poor excuse for this unlimited sale.  In 1919 when the epidemic was  passed and but comparatively few-  cases existed, sales of liquor had increased five-fold. Nor was the--ex-  cuse of the attorney-general that  within the limits of the Municipalities   the  provincial  police   could   not  CORRESPONDENCE  To Abbotsford Post:  In regard to a matter of much interest to' many . in the community  (Tho choosing of May Queen), 1  wish (o express my views "which 1  think will be shared by a good many  of those intereste'd..

The  fact  was, Mr. Bowser claimed, that while  a total of 315,000 prescriptions had  been issued without restraint under  a law requiring that liquor should'  be dispensed solely for medicinal  purposes but nine doctors had been  prosecuted. The permit .system inaugurated by the attorney-general  three weeks after the federal ban on  importations came into effect on  April 1, 1918, had proved a boon to  the thirsty' ones. Under it. 5GO permits were issued, presumably to industrial concerns to permit of them  having a supply on hand in case of  accidents. The return made to the  House covering these permits indicated clearly that many of the holders  could under no circumstances be entitled to them. Members of the under-world had gotten them; men do-  scribed as connected with ship-building concerns at points where no such  (Continued on Page Two)  A number cf our.most  autoisfs arc trading in th  and buying new ones.  the official lang- "industry was carried on had got them  and others equally outside the system had be en given permits. At  least one result had been accomplished, Mr. Bowser thought, some =������G0  individuals and ���������their friends had  been tided over the dry spelL Now  the attorney-general, knowing a scandal had been created over his permit  system had decided to cut it out.  Had he been honest, Mr. Bowser'asserted, he would have brought down  the present amendment two years ago  The fact was the government was being forced, on the eve of an election  by the prohibitionists to amend the  act as thc latter desired. The amend- j(���������  ments, he insisted, were an insult to ,  i  prosperous  ���������ir old cars  quired to make an afiudavit, one  which he could make before another  doctor.. That was the "joker" in  the bill,' Mr. Bowser thought. Two  doctors lost to a sense of their professional responsibilities couid do a  land office business by swearing each  other's affidavits. Undoubtedly the!  great bulk of the medical men were j  anxious and determined to observe  the law but the history of prohibition  in this province, a history which had  made H. C.'s name a by-word througn  out, the Dominion, had shown that  some of the medical men had fallen  down. .  Mr. Bowser strongly favored the  placing of another referendum before  the people of the province pointing  lo the fact that tlie soldiers are now  buck and the women would havo opportunity to vote. He quoted from  a'resolution passed by-the Prohibit-,  ion convention hold in Victoria in  March, 19.17, wherein it was set forth  that the prohibitionists were willing  that the act should be enacted for the  term of the war and a reasonable  time thereafter until the soldiers returned when, they considered, the  time would be opportune for another referendum to; the people. As a  public servant he .was not, he'stated,  expressing his opinion on prohibition  though as a private individual ho  would vote on thc.matter as his conscience dictated.

Th-  Attorney-General paraded the eon-id-  ors in a sort of splendid isolation,  displaying an evident grouch. Next  day he did not turn up at his office  or i'n the House.  On Tuesday the House resumed it's  work following the Easter recess and  tho Premier occupied the entire after  noon   with   a   speech   which   brought  the  budget   debate' to  an  end.       It  cannot  be  said   he  contributed   anything constructive to the debate, but  if.lie overlooked any of the old stock  ���������charges  the  Liberals   were   wont  to  hurl in the direction of the .Conservative opposition''aiid,_ especially,  at  .the opposition leader, members of the  House could not recall them.    It was  a  repetition  of  the .same harrangue  which  has done service on  pervious,  occasions at tlta sessions and on the  hustings,  the- chief burden    of    his.,  song being that the opposition  leader, if he would but cease his criticism  of the government and direct his attention to assisting it in evolving    a  programme of-advantage "to the province  he  would  be    exercising     his  rightful function.      Taken    in    conjunction with the unrest within  the  ranks, of. the government supporters  and the out-spoken criticism by some.  <of them on the door pf the House, the  Premier's   lecture  of  the  opposition  leader struck members as7;being more  told out of a iotal, estimated revenue  of approximately twelve millions;   to  the borrowings proposed by the government  already   bills     calling     for  'loans aggregating    if 1 0.SO0.O0O    arc  before flic House and more lo follow  to tho rapid increase in new officials  for new department s of government  the while the Municipalities are making urgent appeals for.assistance and  are   being   given   the  doubtful   handout in the shape of being permitted  to double tax themselves for amusements and. to enforce th.s -unpopular  and unscientific poll tax.     Thc opposition urged that non-essentials be eliminated   and   greater   assistance   be  given  to  such   urgent  needs  as   the  hospitals,  and   when  in    answer     to  their appeal for greater consideration  of the already overburdened tax- pa.y-  ers,   the     attorney-general     broughr  down a bill to permit of the government going  into  the moving picture  production enterprise under the gui.s.*  of -propogating  patriotism  ideas   but  actually, the opposition claimed,     i.o  afford a,means for political propogan-  da at the forthcoming general elections, the opposition leader emphasized  his belief that if ever there was  a  time  when   a   government  needed.  to be criticised in an effort to apply  the  brakes  to  the saturnalia  of expenditure it was now.    That was tin.-  function  of  the  opposition,   he  said  and he announced his determination  to  exercise' it  to  the  full  the  while  being ready to assist tlie government  ih  every  manner  fo  inaugurate  policies of real merit.-    This determination  wa.s  shown   in  the  opposition's  whole-hearted  support "of the  .Mother' pensions bill, the elimination ��������� of  which  last  year  the  opposition   had  strongly opposed on the ground that'  it   was  an   unnecessary   expenditure  of public'moneys and the History ot  which   has   proved   to   the   hilt   the  sound...ss of that position;   its support   of   the   increased   payments   tc  be  mado  to  dependents  under     th':  amendr:n::its to the Workmen's Compensation   Act.

Some of tiie young  er element j\^\'o the Minister of Agriculture a baa half hour when the Lis-  paitmcnt of Agriculture figures were  deal.', with and he was kept explaining the why and wherciore of the  various votes. But serious and adverse criticism came from several  Liberal mui'i bors. ��������� David YVhit'esicL  New Westminster, demanded the dismissal of tiie Civil Service CommiS:  sioner Mcinnes and the* appointment  of a man who would really place the  various departments on an efficiency  basis.

C, ijibO.UOO -by the Department  of Education and the balance by the  Agricultural department the while  the federal government is carrying  on similar work in the province. He  advocated the province and dominion  getting together to the end that  much of the province's outlays should  be eliminated.  Hon. Dr. MacLean was forced to  admit, under Mr. Bowser's questions  that though the government has been  in cilice lour years it has not yet  evolved a policyftof hospitals despite  the pressing needs of many of thosb  institutions, needs which Mr. Bowsei  urged with emphasis should be attended to in a much more liberal  spirit.  The Mininster of Lands was round  ly rapped by Anderson, Knmlcops  for the fact that despite an overloaded water branch with engineer  after engineer on the pay roll investi- i growth  gations into the status of water records in the Kamloops district has  been delayed for years ' or,  having been made, no action in connection therewith has been taken.  Major Burde also criticised that rnin-  'ster for failing to have heeded the  complaints of the municipalities of  Port Alberni that the Ritchie, Agnew  concern, Prince Rupert people, were  allowed'to hold water rightst on tiie  Stamp River falls when after years of  doing nothing to carry-out- the rights  granted to them, they were still permitted to remain there and block development by any other hydro-electric concern.  The more the estimates are studied  by members the more the impression  's gaining ground that there ' is an  over-plus of officials drawing good  salaries, that the service had become  decidedly top-heavy and expensive  for a population of 4 ".0,000.

The,suggestion was,made that  the.chief jiistice'of , the province  could sign the bills and perform th?  necessary opening and closing ceremonies of. parliament as part of his  duties, and cut out the frills and  expense of the vice-regal establishment.  Major Burde was the first to rais:-  the question. He wanted to know  who got the benefit of the $9,70 0  for looking after th* gardens of Government House, and what sort of a  racket was carried on that required  $4600. for maintenance, repairs and  furniture each year.- He .thought  British Columbia ought not- to tolerate frills while any workingman  ir returned soldier lacked ordinary  comforts.  G. G. McGeer said that if tho in-  /itation to dinner to the members  ���������ach session was what 'Government  House existed for, it should be ended  is not worth the expense to the pub-  ;ic. He "suggested that the conntit-  itional duties of the ��������� lieutenant-  ;overrior should be made part of th.e  ���������oiuine duties of the chief justice of  he province, and-save the province  "rom the expense of maintaining an  -fficial whose duties seemed to allude taking instruction from Ottawa  o refuse to sign legislation enacted  iy the provincial legislature.  ���������.'ItAIIlIK   LANDS   J-'OK   SOIjJHHHS  Ottawa, April     13.���������The     Soldier  Jettlement Board of Canada has completed   arrangements   with   the  three  inline provinces by   which- considerable areas of school lands in the west  mve become available-I'or settlement  if returned soldiers.

Since thc introduction  of  the  car  into   Canada,  the industry   has made   phenomena!  strides.     Just   how   remarkable   the  has been   may be   realized  from the fact that whereas in 1903  in all the breadth of the Dominion  there were but 220  car owners,  in  1919 the-number of registrations totalled'324,886.    By provinces the registration of cars is as follows:  On-  l tario, 139,288; Saskatchewan, 54,792;  | Alberta,     34,000;    Quebec,    -29,183;  I Manitoba,  29,163;   British   Columbia,  | 19,500;    Nova    Scotia,    9,900;    New  l-Brunswick, 8,061; Prince Edward Is-  | land, 999.  !     At the present    time the sum    of  $50,000,000 is invested in  the Canadian motor industry, and its various  lines account for the employment of  more than .15,000 people.   The estimated aggregate sale of ears'in Canada  laist year was over $100,000,000' and  ��������� expert investigation has elicited tho  probability of a 35 per cent Increase  over these figures for the year .1920.  Onlario Canada's Motor Province.  Ontario  is  the  motor province  of  Canada in manufactures as  well  as  ownership.    Windsor,   with   its  surrounding communities of Walkcrvillc  and Ford City, Oshawa and Toronto  are the most, important manufactur-'  ing towns. The D'ord Motor Company'  at   Walkerville    employis 3.470    employees    at -the    home office.      The  plant covering 9 acres.   Tho recently  completed    plants    of the   Canadian  Products,'Ltd., division-of the General-Motors of Canada, constructed  at Walkerville, cost. $6,000,000.  Other  large plants in tho  Windsor district  are Maxwell's    and  thc    Studebakcr  Corporation,    in    addition to    which  there  is  a   large   number  of  plants  turning- out accessories and automobile partis.    At Oshawa, the General  Motors    Corporation of Canada** has  three large plants, where McLauglin,  Chevrolet and Oldesmobile cars are  manufactured.      Last year    between  $2,000,000 and $3,000,000 was spent in  this town on extensions and improvements in connection with tho industry.   I" Toronto the Willys Overland  Is the principal plant:*whilst London.  Chatham,   Kitchener,   Hamilton   and .  Brockville are also interested in tho  manufacture.      Montreal, in Quebec,  is also largely interested in motor industries.  Imports and Exports.  Canada is largely interested in  both the import and export or automobiles. In 1919 the imports of cars,  parts and accessories amounted to  $12,201,119, while exports for the  same period were valued at $10 889,-  234. The imports were practically  all from thc United States. The  growth of the export trade can bn  seen from a comparison with the figures of 1917 and 1918 which were $1 -  210,120 and $4 413,976 respectively.  Australia wois the Dominion's best  buyer last year the Commonwealth  buying $2,440,000 worth of cars.

During that period the  attorney-general had been asked three  times.if the return was ready and had  stated it had not reached him. The  return showed a net profit of over  half a million on liquor sales in addition to which there were large  stocks, of liquor on hand. And yet,  Mr. Bowser pointed out, it was apparent that the Department did not  know what stocks were on hand at  the end of 1918 and 1919 for, ' In  reply to questions the answer had  been returned, "not available" Under  such circumstances there was littlo  wonder, Mr. Bowser said, that the  administration of the act had been u,  failure.  On Thursday night Premier Oliver  came to the defence of his attorney-  general in a two and one-half hour  speech in which he completely ignor-  od the principles of tlie amending  hill under consideration and devoted  his entire time to "slanging" the opposition leader in a tone of voice  that at times almost rose to a scream  He accusad Mr. Bowser of uttering  false, misleading and malicious statements, spoke of the latter's .'.'devilish  subtlety" and raked up every old  charge he could think of. The effort was decidedly overdone but what  it lacked in logic It made up for in  noise and declamation. He declared  every effort had been made fo enforce the law and he went at length  into the Findlay, Gartshore and other  prosecutions emphasizing the fact  that "an ex-Conservative attorney-  general and ex-leader of'the Conservative party" had been counsel for  Gartshore, though just why 'the fact  that Mr. Charles Wilson, K. C, of  Vancouver, former Conservative minister and a lawyer practising law in  Vancouver, should not have taken up  the defense or why, because he did, it  should be any reflection upon the  Conservative party in its attitude towards law-enforcement, the Premier  did not explain. Undoubtedly the  impression among members on both  sides of the House was that hnnort,  in the debate had gone to the opposition leader.
