J. A. BATES, Editor and' Proprietor  FRIADY, APRIL 29, 1921  Once more Premier Oliver interviews . the  federal government with a, view to having  that   government take   over the P. G. K- and  ' operate it as a part of the dominion ��������� system  of railroads. That his interview will be a  failure goes without saying is surely a foregone conclusion  for various reasons.  The political aspect of the case is decidedly against Premier Oliver. We believe the  federal government can play politics just as  well as can the provincial government, and  that is going some too, judging by what is  and has taken place in this province during  the past four years. The P. G. E. is a Liberal  undertaking as now constituted. It stands m  a different position today than when the pres  ent   government   came   into   power.   It has  ��������� ������������������ been remodelled throughout by the present  premier, leaving not a vestige of what the f.  G E" was when the Conservative government was in power in this province. IL now  represents a Liberal undertaking in this prov  ''   ince into which had   been   instilled   Liberal  ideas   of   how a   railway in    this    province  should be built    We are not saying that this  ' system is right or wrong, but that it is absolu-  ��������� tely a Liberal undertaking, remodelled according to' Liberal Premier and Liberal Minister of Railways.  -���������" ' ' This"game of politics, which'is    played by  ���������both side's, may not be in the best interests  .   of the people always, but it is.that which   the  political parties'-consider is the best for keep-  -���������'" ing that-party in power. ��������� We know it is practised in ,this   province from   what we see and  hear."'   Recently ' when a. delegation   inter's    viewed a.minister regarding a certain matter,  -the remark was 'made by the minister asking  ��������� " ' "if there was politics in it; you know self-pres-  '"   ery'ation is'one of the:   first laws of   political  ���������'longevity.?     -And.thatus   probably only one  instance' of what happens/almost every -day:  ���������    if the provincial    government is then a past  V"."'"master at playing politics who,can blame  'the'  Conservative* government at Ottawa, for ;play-.  1      .'ing'politics .when    dealing with .that govern-  '. ment or its representatives.   'When the pres-  ' ent 'government    was    seeking    renewal  of  power in   1917 we,  find that the  premier of  this province, although a war-time'election,  was out against t\e union of the ��������� purpose of  carrying on the ' .waf, even   going so,far   as  furnishing "funds to defeat Unionism:   Readers have not yet forgotten the public expression of opinion   from   members .of the   Oliv-  '   er cabinet in 1917.   Premier   Meighen   must  know all these facts in   connection   with the  B. C. Provincial government; a:nd who would  ���������blame'"him for looking, through those glasses  at.the   P. G. E.    proposition when    Premier  Oliver interviewed  him within the next few  weeks. .  This game of politics might also be viewed  from another, point, the point of future boastings on the hustings of our provincial government. Would it have pressure at the next  provincial election for the Oliver government  ": to refer to the fact that after putting the  Bowser government on the blink and remodelling the P. G. E. system the Conservative  government at Ottawa had, been induced to  take over the road and make it a part of the  dominion system- It would go down with a  lot of people who might familiar with  the facts of the P. G. E. of this province since  begun. , Now there is just a little jealousy between the two great parties of Canada  and not many instances can be pointed out  where the provincial government has helped  the dominion, or vica versa, unless both governments were of the same political hue.  Apart from all this there is no doubt but  that the people of B. C. would welcome a  change from provincial to dominion control  if for no other reason than that the cost of  building and maintaining it would fall upon  all the people of Canada instead of upon the  poor B. C. Taxpayer. As it is the Dominion  government has not invested any money in  the proposition as yet and is not likely to do  so, as Premier Meighen must surely have  enough railways on his hands now that do  not pay.  rates case. a '-      '  The chairman would "evidently: persuade the people  of the West that this change of .tactics is due to the  fact that in the freight,rates case the Board was compelled hy the strength of the argument to -hand down  a decision against the Canadian public and in favor of  the railway interests.' "A careful',- observer however  will find himself inclined to conclude that the people  sre of opinion that these now tactics are due to the  fact that .irrespective of freight-rates there is a  change'in the mental attitude'.of the Board toward  lie  people. ���������. , '    ., ���������  Tt has been understood that the.Board of Railway  Commissioners was.originally constituted'forthe pur-  pose of safegardhig'the people'against -undue-encroachments'upon the part of-the big transportation  ���������nd kindred corporations. Underlie Babee regime  and under the Drayton regime the' attitude of th-  Board was at all times transparently upon the side  of the people The BoardSvon the implicit confidence of the people and consequently its finding?  ivere always accepted  without question.  There need lie no hesitation in stating frankly that  the Board no loni'er enjoys, the confidence of the  people as such in the manner that it did in former  days. The , opinion that, is , met with at the present  ime is to the effect that the Board has a decided bias  in favor of the big corporations, and that, to call it  lie "people's court" would be a sad misnome.  Although undertaken ostensibly for the purpose   of  removing   any   lingering   misapprehension   from   the  uhlifi mind .with  reference to the    freight rates de-  ision. the platform campaign of the Chairman would  ppear' to  have an  ulterior motive,  namely,  that    of  coking to re-establish the Board in the confidence of  the pcoplft.    There is but. one way, however, in which'  that, can be    accomplished, and that is by the    Board  placing itself again as sincerely and as frankly upon  the side of the    people as it was    when it was originally  established.���������North  Shore Press.

In days gone by,  people" dreaded a-visit to the dentist's chair as to an  instrument of';torture: But modern science has eliminated the painful methods of a few years ago,, and  the dental profession has,not hesitated to tell the  world, through,the medium of the daily press, that it  need not-hesitate, through dread of pain or expense,  to undergo the most critical dental operations. The  result has been that the health of the community at  large has-been incalculably benefited, while the enter  prising dental profession has prospered during  periods when the rest of the world suffered.  The  whole  question  of  professional  advertising  ir  a    "matter of    viewpoint and'  prejudice.'   In    most  large "cities today���������Vancouver included���������the  churches-advertise their services and activities.    It is onb  a matter of time until physicians and lawyers', do the  same.     Many people,  knowing that they are  subjec'  to heart "or kidney or other trouble, refuse to consult r  doctor through very fear of learning the truth" abou'  their condition.    This sheer ignorance, and it is tli '  duty of the medicai  profession-to so educate the la;  public   that  premature   deaths  and   unnecessary  suf  fering will be avoided.    This can be done only by enlightening people  with regard to the advances made  in medicine during the last few years.  The ice has been broken in this direction. Already  leading daily newspapers in New York City are carrying heavy advertising along these very lines, and it  is only a question of time until all North America  follows suit.  "Let your light so shine" is not an axiom of  religion alone. It. should be the slogan of every man  and woman, business or profession that has a useful service, to render to mankind. It. is well to be  qualified to help. It is also well to let people know-  that you arc qualified to help and in what ways.  844 Cambio.St.  VANCOUVER  J.

'  .In the first place,,Ihd'ia lieson tlie  south side of tlie continent of "Asia,  and in'-it    there are    nearly    three  thousands,of. English/people, besause  India belongs to the British Empire.  India "is'"n'o't"'6nl5'"!iw vorybigcoun-'  try In  itself,-but.  its mountains "and  rivers and plains arc on a very large  scale.   -The-highest mountain, in the  world,     "Mount     Everest,  is on     the  Indian    frontier.      There aro    enormous-rivers, the'Indus and the Ganges, and also the biggest kind of wild  animals live (here���������.elephants,  lion?,  leopards and  tjgers, and  fierce  wild  cattle with mighty horns, and crocodiles in the rivers, which drag down  men and,cal tie if    they, catch., them:  shakes    large and  small,'   including  the most terrible' of all,  r-tlie    ebbi-a,  for whose bite there is no cure.'The  heat, in India    scorches with a    heat  Mia't can hardly be imagined and rain  falls-in gushing" torrents, such'as we  seldom  see in  this country, even in  the worst thunder storms.   .  ;It is impossible toget to India at'  all except by sea, as you may" discover by examining any good map; or  by making a way through the mountains. * The mountains are so high  and so difficult to get through that  there are really only two passes by  which armies have been able to get  into India, and both these are on the"  northwest side.. If they are well  guarded. ah enemy cannot force his  way .through, and an invader cannot  one-quarter Mohammedans, or as  they, aro often called, Mussulmans,  who* believe* in the "teachings of. Mahomet.  Tho    Mussulmans    think of themselves as descended'   from >a   race of  victorious    soldiers,   who have been  rulers of   the    country in the'  past,  anad    (here is a , great    division between  them  and the'Hindoos; whom  they look upon as infidels.    Hindoos  and Mussulmans'keep separate,,"thev  do not- marry'  each    other. - and in  many parts, even under British rule,  they can -hardly be kept from fighting with each other. fl  ������������������ Less than ai,    hundred-  years    ago  there was a "shocking practise among  the Hindoos.    "When a -man died his  body was burned and the custom was  for the.widow, if   she    wished to be  thought very Virtuous/ to "burn "herself alive on  her    husband's funeral  pyre.    This was    supposed to    bring  some great good^to-the '--husband'in  the life to come   and so the    wjdows [  were often  forced to do this by "the '  dead mail's kinsfolk.   This, hoiyever, '  is never   .done    now as'it-has    been  stopped by, the JBritish.      '  ���������BMW  The     most     remarkable       cuatoicv  among the    Hindoos,   'and the - one  which    most works    against'the pro-  gr.e'ssjof' the -���������Indian as-a citizen, is  what'iS'.called-   "caste.-'- In(   ancient  times there    -were ./four. / divisions,  each of which, kept separate from the  others and  married    wives who belonged to their own division or par- ,  ticular, caste;  and the children were  of the parents'    caste.'     The priests  and   teachers    belonged" to one- c?.ste -  called Brahmins; and the soldiers to;  another.    These,   .and also the third ���������  caste were parts of a ra-ce' which con-,  quered most of India; but the fourth -  quered were considered as base born,  because  they     belonged  to the con-.  quered peoples;- and the conquerors^  believed    that they   'were not    only*  superior in this "world," but .would be -  superior al3o in the next life. Among,  themselves 'they supposed the Brah-  get into India'unless lie comes across- mins    were      superior to all    others  the sea. ���������'   There,   -you see is a   very 'and the warrior to    the' third caste.  good reason why .the. people who" inhabit India grew up apart from  other-nations'so as'to be so unlike  them in customs and manner". The  sea and the mountains have been a  barrier between- the Empire and the  rest of the world. '  *  " India is a" very hot country. Sometimes, in winter, up among the high  barrier'mountains���������which can hardly" be sahV- to be in India really���������it  is quite cold, but all other places,  even the'coolest" are ��������� .much warmer  than in ' England; and in. all the  great "plain's -where the rivers flow,  and still ' more" so in those plains  where ,--there are no .rivers, it. is  always hot. The heat is so trying  that many Europeans get ill if they  stay long so that English people hav?.  taken to going to '-'the hills" in the'  hot, or at-least to sending  their wives and children'"to. the-hills.  If they themselves have to stay behind; it is hardly safe to go out of  doors except early in the- morning  and late in the evening. Indeed  there- are'"'few -places' in India -���������where'  it is possible for English children to  grow" up'strong and -healthy, so -that  when Englishmen in- India marry  they know that it is^ just a question  of time before they will have to .send  their children home to be brought'up  in England, and that their, "wives will  often have to choose between being  parted from their chidren and being  parted from  their husbands.  There are many great cities in India, of which the largest is Calcutta,  In olden times .-and Indeed, until, a  short time ago,-the British -people  who were at the head of the government in India used to live at Calcutta  the year round; but now they -livf.  it Delhi during the winter and at  Simula during the hot season.  In India most of,the p.eople male  their living by tilling the soil, which  grows rice, wheat or millet. The  big cities grew up because emperors  and kings found they were convenient places in which to build their  palaces as they could be well fortified;. and as the kings lived there  with 'their courts," men collected  around-them, that the people of the  court might buy their goods and that  they might be protected against  robbers .or the raids or enemies.  Other cities grew up in spots which  were held 'sacrod as sometimes in  Europe towns grew more quickly  where there was a famous cathedral  or abbey. So that the largest towns,  except tho few ports,-were generally  at one time either the capital of a  kingdom, or places to which 'people  went on pilgrimages or strong fortresses. '   ' A '' ������������������'-���������������������������'���������  There are not many ma-iufaotur;  ies in India/ and so you can travel  Immense "distances without seeing  a large ' city, and in other placp<:  where in ancient times great cities  j have stood are the ruins of buildings  that were once magnificent.  About one in every thousand  people in India is white, all the natives have brown: skins���������some darV  brown, some light, brown, but all  brown and there are a thousand  natives to every European. Out of  thenrall very, few are Christians:  nearly   three-quarters   are   Hindoos:  If a man,"broke certain laws, even if  he   were not to    blame,- he    was de--  graded from his own    caste and be-,  cairie no better than one of the base  born';   therefore it was held to be a  terrible thing .to lose caste.  In time each of these great caste.-*  broke  up into a number of smaller  castes, which are just as ' particular  about not .marrying into other castes.  High caste'  people will    not    touch-  food cooked    by low.   caste    people;  and if    people   eat   certain   kinds of  food;  if    they    cross the    sea or do  many other'things.which seem to us  not to matter at  all, they   lose the>>  caste,, and .can  only save thnseselves r  by*-- suffering     certain     punlsmonts.  There is nothing the' Hindoo fears as .  much  as doing anything  which   will  cause him to    loose    his    caste .and  there has'often been trouble because?  Europeans,   /not    realizing, "how Important this is to    them,    have made  rules for soldiers or given    orders to  servants against the caste rules. ���������  There are also sacred animals' in  India. " "The" most; sacred of all is  the cow. and to kill or injure a co'v  is a terrible sinin thexeyes of a.-Hin-  doo. But on the other hand the Mus  sulmans think it a sin to hold animals sacred or to pay honor to" images  and   idols. .    '  BRITISH RULK  All these Hindoos and Mussulmans are ruled over by the British.  In about half the country all tho  people who look after the Government are 'British', except that a few  natives are allowed to share in the  work." " '   '  The other half of India is made  up of'a number of native states,  ruled over by ^ their own native  princes, who generally have the title  of Rajah or Maharajah, and these  princes have their own armies, although they are not allowed to have  a sufficient number of soldiers to  become dangerous. A British officer, who may be either a soldier or  a member of tho civil service, lives  near the court of these princes.  Sometimes he is called the Resident  and sometimes tlie Agent. It is  his business to see that the native  princes govern properly, though he  does not interfere unless they govern  really badly; and it is his business  also to give advice and to keep the  Viceroy of India, and his council Informed about everything of importance that is going on.  At tho head of the whole government of India is the Viceroy or Governor General and his council; and  when the Viceroy says that a native  prince must do this, or must do that,  the prince must obey. .-  Big strikes in the logging camps  "on Vancouver Island next month,  with the possibility of the supply of  timber being cut off,/.are predicted  by Rev.

Urgent  public business not yet attended- to  1 has delayed him here, he said, but  I the matter to be dealt with on.his  trip are considered very important  and in need of attention immediately  The Premier will travel by way of  Edmonton, where he will spend a  day with Premier Stewart of Alberta,  on Che question of railway connection  between Pouce Coupe and Spirit  River. This, he explained, is in  keeping with his desire to afford  the settlers on the British Columbia  side of the line some suitable means  of  transportation.  While in that district last summer  the government leader suggested  loaning the Alberta Government  sufficient- steel to ��������� complete the  Edmonton, Dunvegan & British Columbia Railway to inter-provincial  bounday. The taking over of the  line by the'. C. P. R. Government  subsididing the line in oder to repair  improve and extend it,, Premier Oliver hopes to make suitable arrangements for an early extension to  Britiuh Columbia points.  I Another determined effort - to  [reach a suitable solution of the P.  G. 10. problem will be made . by  I Premier Oliver while in Ottawa. It  'is his intention to urge once more  I that the -federal government take  lover the line and incorporate It in  jthe national system, or failing that,  to grant a mibr.idy for the completion of the line by the Provincial  Government. (  "I ntill contend that such* consideration Is tho rleht of British Columbia." said Premier Oliver. "We are  suffering under a load of debt on  'account of this railway, which keeps  the credit of the province at the  breaking point, and leaves no money  'for the many pressing things which  a provincial ��������� government has to  attend to and as railway administration is purely a federal matter, T  shall leave no stone unturned to  have this matter settled once and for  all." .���������!".'  Other railway extensions will be  discussed with the Ottawa authority, but the Premier said these  nuestions were still In a nebulous  state and he could say little regarding  them.

Following up the resolution passed In the Legislature in February,  asking the Dominion Government to  pass legislation supplementing the  Provincial Liquor Control Act,,  Premier Oliver said he would pres3  for this, feeling that while Ottawa  contends that the province luur all  the power necessary, still the situation in British Columbia would be  more secure with support of the  federal powers.   ���������  The Liberal chief will attend the  Good Roads convention in Halifax  on May 10, after which he will visit  his tisod father. He will not return  to Victoria uutil    June 1,    when ho  will plunge Into tho question of  taxation reform; In this regard,  Premier Oliver said ho was moro  than ever convinced of the advisability, of holding the next session of  the Legislature not later than November 1, so that Christmas would  see the end of the sitting.
