Elliott  Vicioriu,  Apri  K. 0., the Vancouver lawyer who is  i-op resenting 111o original owners of  (ho Dolly Varden mine, and who is  frying- t.o dispossess (.Ik; Taylor Company, sent two long telegrams addressed to lion. John Olivor.  The   first' reached   the   Premier  on  I- ridiiy evening' and was mad by liin  . in the .' louse.  The-   second   reached   Victoria.,   a-  hout   noon   Saturday.  , If,   was   read  by   Col   M'clmosh,   Liu:   Premier   nor.  receiving   the   original   copy   or   tiio  message until some.' minutes after the-  copy   was  in'Col.

"Socoir.l, about a week ago you  stated in the presence of one of the  members of the Legislature that  there would bs no further Dolly Varden legislation, and your statement  was definite, emphatic and,, unconditional.  your statement to the contrary was a  ; deliberate, wilful lie made with intent  to deceive the Legislature and there-,  by to procure the passage of legislation introduced by you under pressure of secret illicit and fraudulent  lobbying.  "This is not the first time you  have deliberately deceived the Legislature and with your permission,  further instances will here be given.  ��������� "When the Brewster cabinet was  being formed all papers in connection with the John T. Scott case  were entrusted to you for perusal  and report, and your report made to  Mr. Brewster in my presence was that  evidence existed that proved beyond  all question Mr. Macdonald's responsibility for "the actions of John T.  Scott.  "Shortly thereafter you are found  sitting and acting as colleague of Mr.  Macdonald in the Brewster cabinet,  and deliberately assisting- in deceiving the Legislature and public into  tli0 belief that the charges against.  Mr.   Macdonald were inventions.-;  "Then came the charge about the  ���������SKKKiy; TO  IIAVK GOOD ROADS  A   considerable    portion     of     the  Malsqui municipal council's time on  Monday  was taiten  up  with  matters  in  connection   with  roads.    R.   Duncan's tender for clearing    and    constructing half a mile of road on the  Huntingdon road in Ward 11. was accepted.     William Elliott was the successful   tenderer   for   hauling   gravt'i  lo the Bell road.     He asked lor $1.80  per yard for hauling gravel from the  riverside   bank   and   ������'Z.'Z0   from   tne.  scow.       The council   has  at  present  three scowloads on the river. Mr. Elliott promised to put on three teams  immediately, so as to,have the work  completed by June 15th.     The council  was particularly anxious to have  the Bell road completed by that dare,  as there have been numerous complaints,   which   continue   to  grow   in  number.  Messrs Seath and Dowries attended  {he meeting in connection with the  condition of the Downes road, which  was described as very bad.    Oouncii-  OMVHIi  AM) BOWSER HOW  IX SAM 10 JIOAT FOR A WKK  PERSONALS  lor Benson agreed to give the matter  his immediate consideration.  A complaint was received about  the condition of the Sinclair road,  which was ' causing considerable  trouble in the matter of the, rural  mail deliveries. The road will receive   attention.  - The sum of $500 was voted to the  iVLatsiiui Agricultural and Horticultural Association, of which. $100 is to  be used for school purposes.  Permission was granted to Mr.  Macey, $5 being tendered, to cut hay  on an unused .portion of the Mt.  Lehman.' cemetery.; It was pointed  out that this .was the only work ever  done at the cemetery by way of keeping it from becoming a wilderness.  LADTRS TAKE STEPS  ���������i'J PRESERVE  CEMETERY  Mackenzie campaign contribution,  and you knew before the charge was  made that Mr. Macdonald had received the money and you had acquiesced  in his handling of it. When Mr. Macdonald arose in the Legislature you  were silting there and heard him and  concurred in his denial, for you had  full knowledge of the facts and his  denial was your denial, for you wore  under the same oath of odics and the  same duty to the Legislature as he  was.  "You were will in j; thai the Legislature should be deceived and you  also kept silence when (he judicial  coinm'ssioiier was appointed and then  when l ho crash came and Macdonald.  was dismissed from the cabinet you  allowed him to be entirely blamed  and actually deceived I lie Legislature  into believing you had no previous  knowledge of the money, whereas in  fact you had full knowledge and acquiesced in every step of Macdonald s  up to the time of the judicial enquiry.  "Then two men named Policy  and Keith were notified to appear  before you in respect of large land  areas in the North with the view of  ascertaining what portions of lands  they represented should be taken for  returned  soldiers.  "In the course of resulting- 'proceedings you made pergonal examination of such lands and select.cd some  for yqursolf, abandoning the lawful  reason for your presence, namely, tu  find lr.miH suitable for soldier settlement .and the result was that agreement to deliver certain lands to you  at nominal price served to protect  large areas from soldier settlement.  At the last council meeting of the  Ma tsyui board a deputation of ladies  waited on the council, calling attention ' to the deplorable condition of  the Mt. Lehman cemetery and to ask  for assistance in the matter of beautifying this last resting place of so '  many old-timers of the district. !  Coun. Kcay said tliat he thought:  the cemetery's condition amounted to !  a  public  scandal,  and  he   was   very  glad to see the ladies take the mat- j  ter up.'   He would arrange for gravel J  to be  hauled there and for grading i  and levelling to be done.    Coun. P.  Keay arrd  the ladies were appointed  a committee to  have charge or  th^  matter  and .a  "baa"   working   party  will   be   called   for   the   next   public  holiday.  Coun. .Knight of Mission municipality is a groat believer- in' having  a cemetery look neat and as though  if belonged to some one, and judging  from his remarks at council-meetings  during (lie past.^few years would welcome the assistance of a'committee  who would certainly have a very line  hearing at any meeting of the Mission  council.    Just try  it and  see.  During the excitement in the 'legislature ��������� over the Elliott, telegrams  a very remarkable thing happened in  the fact that both Oliver, the Premier  and Bowser, leader of Opposition, a-  grecd on a certain matter. This is  how it happened:  The leader of the opposition expressed the view that the Premier  had taken the. proper course, and  had said the proper things when he  read the telegram to the House Friday night. Mr. ��������� Bowser declared?,  moreover, that the Legislature should  consider its action very carefully  when the question of using power to-  bring persons before the bar of the  House  was   involved. He  agreed  with the Premier that the most effective bar at which Mr. Elliottcould  appear would be the bar of public  opinion, and' he pointed . out that  were Mr. Elliott to be brought to  the Legislature as the resolution demanded, such a procedure might very  easily result in converting the whole  subject into-one. of ridicule,. After  all, Mr. Bowser continued, the.matter was a personal one between Mr.  Elliott and the Premier, and on that  account he considered the Premier  well able to t a ke care of himself,  either in the Legislature or anywhere  else.  The Premier rose and replied to  Mr. Bowser with-the suggestion that  the matter was by no means a personal matter between himself and  Mr. Elliott. He declared,."too, ^that  he was ' becoming"'w;eary ' of being  placed in false positions which tended to reflect, upon his honesty an  integrity. Hitherto, however,    he  had cast these aside, fully convinced  that'he .would be following the proper course by so treating them and  devoting his time and attention to  matters which he considered were  more important and more beneficial  . to  the public  interest.  I   ;The Premier continued that he had  j known many prominent men who had  I occupied  important  positions  in  the  ] public  life  of  the  country ..who  had  t at somet ime or other displayed an  I obvious "mental affliction",    fn Mr.  Elliott's case, therefore, he considered the sending of the telegram which  he ha dread to the Mouse last night  was the outcome of a L5rpb of mental  affliction,  rather .than ''pure cussed-  ness."  ���������Mr. Bowser���������Now that I lie House  has disposed of this matter in a  manner which I consider satisfactory  I .may relieve the tension by alluding  to the Premier's remarks.

C-, April 17.���������In  what degenerated info a, veritable  .scramble at the finish, the fourth  session of ihe Fourteenth Parliament  of British Columbia came to a- conclusion , tip's al't-rnooii. After (wo  and one-half months, practically one-  half of which was wasted time, owing  to the ill-prepared nature of the government's legislative programme, the  House completed its business. it  was apparent that members of (he  government and their supporters  welcomed (he end. In fact during  the final fori night the prestige of  the administration suffered miserably  To the apparent' lack of leadership  in (he House, the ill-disguised- dissatisfaction 6f Liberal members at  the delay in the legislative work.- indicated clearly that within the. party  ranks things w. re not running as  smoothly as might ho. The outspoken crii.icisiii of government  measures and policies voiced by (he  Liberals reached the climax this week  when that so often vaunted policy,  one upon which the laic lion. Air.  Brewster pinned his faith, the talcing  of the civil service out of party politics by placing it, under an official  responsible only to I ho Legislature!,  was willed out of existence. By an  amendment to the Civil Service Act  (he Civil-Service Commissioners was  made subject to tho Lieutonanl-gov-  ernor-in-fouiicil. In other words the  oflice   once   again   became   a   purely  party one .and the safe-guard designed by I he late Premier to eliminate  the evils of patronage and keep the  service free \'von\ party influences  went into discard. Complaint that  the present Commissioner war, not a  big enough man for the job had been  voiced by Whilewide, ��������� New Westminster, who moved to place the official  under the cabinet... The change was  strongly opposed by the Conservatives who, while ready to admit the  present .commissioner was not "competent, urged I hat the proper course  for (he government to take was to  lay the facts before the Legislature  and allow it to deal with the Commissioner. The action of the government. ..was. Mr. Bowser declared,  a complete fiiHillment of his prophecy  that, it was the desire of (he government to g:t rid of the embarrassing!  civil service regulations which restricted the patronage proclivities of  tho Ministers. But perhaps after all.  ho suggested; as the govenuumt had  never lived up to its professions in  the matter of a. civil service free  from politics, the fact that now. after  four years in oflice. it was proposed  to throw into tlt.c discard the chief  policy of the late 'Liberal leader,  was a frank admission that, from now  on party affiliations would be the  guiding principle in the making of  appointment   s.  It. was noted that when tlio vote  on the Whiteside amendment took  place, the Premier was not in his  seat,   having 'left   the   chamber   just  before   the   division   took   place.     It  is no secret that he  was opposed   to  the move. In fact the matter was  ���������the subject 'of heated discussion in  the Liberal caucus but the advocate  of  a   party-free'service   lorit  out.  As was predicted, the members in  the final week were simply deluged  under a grist of biils which poured  into the' Hous'j in a ��������� seemingly unending stream. The result was this  legislation was rushed through without adequate consideration and 'even  with three sittings a day the time  was too limited to permit of proper  attention to measures materially affecting the welfare of the public. OP  the I 23-bills tabled quite '.one-half  were introduced .in the last three  weeks. ,  Undoubtedly (he Prohibition bill  providing for tightening up the present Act, and the bill to provide for  flic taking of tho plebiscite in Angus! next, created chief interest, a-  niong members. The government refused to permit any more than two  clear-cut questions to be put to the  people, namely, the Present Act as  amended at this session versus government control and sale. A resolution introduced on the last day calling upon the government to, in the  event of the plebiscite favoring Prohibition, ask the. Dominion government "at the earliest possible moment" to submit a plebiscite upon  j the question of importation was approved. It meant nothing, Mr, Bowser held, except that it was a species  vmaganmem  Hswswuur)  DENTIST  PURE BRED  / The livestock men of Alberta  iave adopted a novel means of promoting their industry, and, lncident-  ly. of bringing to the notice of the  ipeople both within and without the  province, the standing of Alberta as  a livestock country.  i Thirteen of the largest breeders  have donated thirteen steer3, mostly purebreds, to the University Farm  without any charge whatsoever.  These steers represent the cream of  twenty-four of -Alberta's leading  herds, and constitute what Is  thought to be the finest selection of  its kind owned by any institution in  Canada.  During the past a number of grade  steers had been bought from time to  time by the University Farm for  judging purposes for the students of  the College of Agriculture. The  bos* of these were shown at the local  live stock shows and later sold.  It was next to impossible however  to secure the class of stock best  suited to this purpose with the funds  available, as it entailed going to the  larger breeders and paying top  prices for selected individuals, and  in all probability tho breeders would  run care to dispose of the animals  ol the age most suitable. It was  fell that this work couid be made  ���������more valuable to the province at  large if instead of using ordinary  grade steers, animals of higher  merits could be obtained. In any  care the corst of labor, feed and  ii.iiising would be the same.  To Professor A. A. 'Dowel!, Chief  o! the Department of Animal Uus-  h.-.ndry. of the University of Alberta,  came an inspiration whereby the  University was able to gel the required animals without paying a  cent for them, yd giving their  p'ners a good return. It appears  that there are a number of breeders  in the province of Alberta who arc  not in a -position to do their own  fitting and showing. Consequently  "their herds suffer from a lack of  advertisement. Prof. A, DowMl  evolved a plan by which the breeders'  in this position would get their here's  advertised at Ihe exhibitions,'ard the  University Farm the desired clr.ss of  animals. The plan suggested was  that the breeders doncte five or fix  calve? .of the lli'vo lrad"ng ' beef  he -r!'3 ';inrl Mio University would  use them for judging purposes for  two scasoi's, :i:(l exhibit them at  the International Live Stock Show  fit Chicago.    Practically, all  of,  j.h,o  Alberta Stock Ranch :   Purebred Calves for Alberta University Farm.  breeders approached were perfectly  willing to assist in carrying out this  scheme. The plan wasesubraitted to  tho Alberta Breeders Association at  their annual convention held at Calgary last May, and, receiving the  entire approval of tho Association,  twenty-four breeders offered the  best calves of  their  herds.  Immediate steps were- taken to  visit the various farms, and after  three months thirteen calves were  selected from the twenty-four herds.  Grades were not debarred, but pure  breds were preferred.  The big difficulty that Prof. Dowcll  had in selecting .these calves was  not getting the owners to consent to  part with them, but rather in refusing animals from breeders who  offered them. Many of the breeders  actually urged the University to send  a representative to their farms, and  take the best of any of their calvos.  What is .most outstanding about  these calves is their uniformity,  quality, and also their age. 'At the  present time most of them, are from  five to Hoven months old, and without exception they can all account  for a 100 pctmds per month.' All of  the animals arc on exhibition at all  times in the University stables, and  a placard hanging over each stall  denotes the breeder, and the breeding, of each animal. The r.nimals  arc kept in the pink of condition  and it is the expression of many  of the leading live stock men visiting tho flables from time to time  that, e";ilc-etivp!y. they are the finest  lot of steers of th:.ir o^e ov/tiod by  any one concern In Canada today.  They  represent  thq .yery_ best, tjjat  there Ifl in Alberta. S  The best two or three animals of  each breed will be exhibited at tho  International Stock Show at Chicago next fall by the University.  The selections will bo made by ;i  committee appointed by each breed  Association. All cf the steers will  be ishown individually, and each will  stand upon its own merits.  If the steers In thi3 exhibit make  a creditable showing in Chicago, it  should prove an excellent advertisement for their breeders, as well as  for beef producers and farmers  generally, not only in Alberta, but  throughout Western Canada;"'- 0:i  tho other band, it. givey to the;  students of the College of Ami-  culture, the future breeders.of the  !

C.  of promise to the Prohibitionists that,  !if they were good and supported the  'government at  next    elections,     the  government might ask for the second  vote.     Mr.   Bowser   pointed   out   the  fact .that if, at the August, plebiscite,  tlio electors decided  in favor of government control, the question    of . a  j subsequent    vote    on       importation  would  not, arise  for  the simple  reason   that   only   those   provinces     declaring ,for prohibition could,take advantage  of the    federal    legislation  . providing for a vote on importation.  I On   the   other   hand   if   the  electors  decided'for, the present act, that fact  would show; them    favoring   importation  for the act allowed  people  to  have liquor'in   their  homes.  It' is evident, the municipalities  will receive little or no benefit from  the legislation' passed allowing them  to increase the amusement tax by  another ten per cent and collect the  unpopular poll tax. The bill to carry  into effect the government's policy in  this respect came down early in the  week. When Hon. John Hart, in his  budget speech, announced what the.  government was going to do to "assist" the municipalities, he announced.the increases' in the amusement  tax would be obligatory. But the  bill provided that the municipalities  "may" enforce the tax. It is tho  same with the poll tax. In the face  of the pressure which will be brought  to bear upon Municinpal councils if  is a safe bet that these additional  sources of revenue will either never  be made operative or else, only to  such a limited extent as will mean  practically nothing of financial value  to the municipalities. In th3 meantime the government will retain its  ten per cent tax on amusements and  will get rid of the trouble and unpopularity of enforcing the poll tax.  The opposition scored signally  when the government consented to  withdraw the unpopular provision in  the Elections Act giving, thj franchise to the Japanese veterans. Alse  there was eliminated the secrion permitting the count of absentee ba'iots  even if.the original applications of  the voters were not available to permit of a comparison of signatures of  the voters on the envelope containing  the absentee ballots with these on the  original applications for registration.  This innocent little section tucked in  at the end of the section de.ign^d tc  throw all possible safe-guards lrouncl  'the counting of the ballots, brought  strong protest from the opposition  and the government bowed to the necessity of wiping out what was the  real "joker" in the bill, and, if left,  would have given wide-open opportunities  for irregularities.  Bills to provide for aggregate borrowings of $19,000,000 were approved "of covering $8,800,000 for P. G.  ID. purposes; $3,000,000 for the University of B. C; $2,000,000 for land  settlement, etc., and $5,000,000 for  roads, etc., this last item to be mot  from out of the increased motor fees  This total of borrowings is the larges:  for any single year in the history ol  the Province. In fact the present  session is distinguished by its record  breaking   proclivities. There   arc  proposed the largest outlays on current expenditure, $ 1.7,'HO.000 ; thr  largest estimated revenuo through  (lie increased taxation, the largest  ovor-head cost of government and one'  of the-largest anticipated deficits.  THE SEA   MUSSEL'  INDUSTRY  r-  A novel - industry which promises,  rapid expansion and great popularity]  is no less than ,the development of a!  substitute for- the succulent but.  somewhat costly oyster. This is the  sea mussel, found in vast quan-;  tities along the low tide mark of the  Atlantic coast, chiefly in New Brunswick. The Dominion Government,'  with the co-operation of scientists,'  has conducted experiments to thla  end in Western University labora-\  torles and it is now. claimed thati  mussels can be produced commer-J|  cially and sold profitably at 15 cents  per quart, as compared with the $1.00,,  per quart around which oyster, prices'  hover. ���������" |  The mussel is by'no means a new  article of diet to the people of Can- ,  ada, and besides being used cxten-J  sivoly in coast towns has found its.,  way to the tables of inland cities in  Central Canada. Its delicacy of  flavor and high food value have been  much advortiscd since the establishment of .government investigation  and experiment, and deserve to bo  much hotter, known. There Is yet  much to bo done in the line of research to ascertain conditions under  which production would be most  rapid and profitable, and to this  end the Council of Industrial and  scientific Research is devoting'its efforts, o  A survey of the mussel beds of the  St. Croix River, which constitutes  the boundary between New Brunswick and Maine, has occupied the attention of a scientist of the council  for three years now. and it is expected that this .\ummcr will see the  satisfactory conclusion of the research. It is believed that the beds  of mussels are praciically unlimited,  and the work occupying those engaged is merely the best conditions  of development. It has also been  determined that mussels become  sweeter and more palatable the farther north they are found, and -n  this regard Canada has a distinct  advantage over the mussel  the south of the Dominion,  of the Hudson's Ray make  larly excellent eating.  The sea mussel cannot be produced in fresh waters so that there is  no possibility, of developing an industry in the Great Lakes. It is.  believed that there are possibilities,  however, for 'he development, of  fresh-waier clams there and the no-  minion Government at the instigation  of the Ontario Fishermen's Association Is conducting a series of experiments which will probably result in  interesting developments.  beds   to  Those  particu-,  -~l  JjjM'KItTAIN.

MATSQUI COUNCIL AFTER  WESTERN POWER COMP.  \NY  The Matsqui municipal council Is  tirsd of waiting for th^ Western Canada Power company to. fulfil its a-  greeinent with the municipality with  regard to-power and light. Matters  were left in abeyance during the war,  and then both parties agreed to put  the matter up to the public utilities  commissioner. A recently received  communication states that it is doubtful whether, this' office* will be continued, and there once again being a  deadlock the council decided on Monday to instruct the municipal solicitor to institute proceedings to compel the power company to act according to agreement.

A copy of this notice and an application" pursuant thereto and to the  "Water Act, 1914," will bs filed in  the office of the Water Recorder at  New Westminster, 13. C.  Objections to the application may  be filed with the said Water Recorder or with the Comptroller of Water  Rights, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, JL C, within thirty days after  the first appearance of this notice in  a lc,cal newspaper.  Ihe  date  of  the  first   publication  of this notice is April 16th, 1920.  The   l-'i'Mser   Valley   Milk  'Producers  Association,   Ltd.,  Applicant.  C.   W.   MURRAY,   Agent.  In the April issuo of their house-  organ, the Starter, Willys-Overland  Limited get behind the Good Roads  movement: in a very practical way.  In a message to its dealers, this automobile concern points out that the  Good Road movement deserves their  support, both as citizens and as automobile merchants.  In a general review of the work  being done throughout the Dominion  the Starter states that Ontario's contribution to the Good Roads movement will be greater than that of any  other province. "The Government's  recent announcement of its policy  of promoting a number of provincial  highways���������designating in all 1824  miles, and of encouraging the improvement of back concession roads  and approaches to villages, has stimulated county councils to the greatest  co-operation."  In Quebec, it is stated, much work  of a local nature is being done  throughout' the province. The provincial program is more extensive  than anything heretofore in Quebec.  Close to  3000  miles of  road  will  come under Government supervision  in Alberta this year. All the repairs and maintenance of these roads  will be supervised by the Government, and to all intent s and purposes  be Government roads.  In Saskatchewan the Highways  Department has placed in the estimates $1.50 per $1 received from  auto license faes which made a total  of almost one and one-half million  dollars.  The British Columbia Government  has adopted a road policy under  which it will pay 7 5 per cent, of  the cost of construction and maintenance of main roads. Semi-trunk,  but- not purely local roads, will also  be assisted to the extent.of .10 per  cent, on construction and 40 per cent,  on maintenance.
