There arc people in the province'of British Columbia today and they are not hard to find either, who will tel  you that when the McBride government came into power m  1903 thai it was the beginning of an era of .good legislation for  the province! For years the same government held power by  associating with the Socialists. Two makes������a group in this  case the same as two makes a group, in Ontario' at the present  time. We don't know .what went on behind the curtains bin  this we. do know that there was hot much legislation of a Socialistic nature���������no "class legislation."; and had .the three Socialists been so minded they could have wrecked the.government ol  the day, times perhaps without number, but they didn't.  There is no reason why the interests representing the mining the agricultural class and the Conservatives should not  make for 13. C. one oi' the strongest governments the province  ever had.  It seems too bad that Premier Oliver and Attorney-General  Farris allowed the Vancouver Sun to let the cat out 'of .the.bag  in. regard to prohibition legislation. ... Intentional or unintentional it rather exposed those two gentlemen iir regard to their  honest dealings, with the prohibition party. We either want  the province 'wet' or 'dry'; and 'if it is to be-dry, let if_.be go.o,d  and dry, and if it is to be wet let it go as it looks.' The present  state is ruinous to the country. We.are rearing* a class of men  and perhaps women, who have no respect for'the law. of the  country.. But they are not to blame as they-are allowed to get  away with it. But the present state of the liquor traffic in the  ui';>v ace is a disgrace. It can't be. the ozone of.B. "C. thai  makes some men so hilarious. We admit ozone is good but. .it  never worked like this before we had prohibition.

Advertising- As An Asset���������  One would think, that in this age of eujightment'and", intelligence that it would be unnecessary to'advance^ any arguments  to demonstrate that advertising is not an expense to a- business  but is as necessary a concomitant as a high-class manager of  sales staff.  Tho value or'goodwill of an' advertising name was well demonstrated during the war in that those who kept their name  and products before the public reaped a justifiable reward.  When peace was declared they found their name, known and  their products' in demand; while those who-got frightened during the war had.to start a new campaign of publicity to reintroduce themeslves to the buying public.  The other day "Fame" (an advertising publication) told of  a man who died not long ago and left'an' estate of several millions, a considerable part of which was the value of 'goodwill  atached to his name.  Merely to leave a worthy name to posterity'is altogether  commendable, but when the name includes a money value in the  nature of a million or two, that's even mere praiseworthy���������as  ycur heirs will readily admit.  Advertising built goodwill around that man's name���������as "it  has for many another���������and thus contributed towards his estate  a burglar-proof, fire-proof, and moth-proof asset.

The prediction that tlie incapable  administration at Victoria will be  swept out.of office at Lhe next election, a warning against the snares  of group government, .which he described as a most dangerous .form  of government, and a call to all electors who would s-;e the destinies  of the province guided on the safe  and sound lines of representative  democratic government to rally to  the standard of the Conservative  party were tiie principal themes of  a spech delivered by Hon. W. .1.  Bowse'', leader of the Conservative  party in' British Columbia, at a  meeting of thej New Westminster  Conservative Association on Saturday  evening at  New   Westminster.  In predicting the fall of the Oliver  administration, Mr, Bowser asserted  that, many good Liberals would vote  against their own party, in an effort  to get. gSfod government, and they  would not be remiss in' their duty  in so doing.  On the subject of group government, Mr. Bowser dealt extensively  .with the situation in Ontario. He  had nothing to say against the farmers but neither thoy nor any other  class had a right to take over the  reins of office and establish a class  government..  As a result of the general unrest  many people are declaring that they  will, desert the old parties, that they  will have nothing to do with party  politics. He suggested that his ;attitude .led towards the menace of  group - government, with its attendant evils. Rather, instead of forming, new .parties, they should attempt to exert their influence towards  re-organizing, purifying and to  the strengthening, of the party organization, and see that the party  nominated as candidates representatives who would give them a good  administration on' the -system which  has. stood-the-test of time.  M'r. -Bowser dealt also,., but more  briefly, with some of the failures of  the' present provincial government,  promising-to deal ��������� with- them more  fully in due course. . He touched on  Lhe' scandalous mal-administratio/i  of the prohibition act, on Lhe colossal  failure of . the" Land Settlement  Board on-the' reckless squandering  of the public purse, on the "paper  legislation" tel' the Oliver government, on the absolute lack of constructive policies, in short, on all  the evidence confirming the public  .opinion, which is pr.efty well unanimous, that 'the Liberals have nci  made good.  . St.. G'ecrge's Hall 'was well filled  and there were a number of lachp;.  present.- Mr. R. A. Braden pv- -T.ii  ed in the unavoidable absence of Mr  D. 13. McKcnzie, president of the  Association, and with him on the  platform were Mr. Bowser, Mrs.'  'Levey of South Vancouver, a' member of the provincial executive, am;  Mr. Howe president of the provincial  Conservative  Association.  The election of officers, which had  been scheduled, was''postponed to a  later meeting.  An amendment to the constitution,  providing for three vice-presidents,  instead of two, and an executive oi  ten instead of six,'was passed, without dissent.  Opening his address, Mr. Bowser  referred (o tho great wave of unrest  and ; the. unsettled state of public',  opinion, as a result of the transition  stage following the war. In this  stage, history will be. made, and he  knew'of no organization better lifted  to make u than the ' Conservative  party, which is now faced with the  zrcat duty of studying the trend ol  events and settling the opinion of  the 'people in safe 'channels. The  party .has been reorganized and rejuvenated, and this fact was demonstrated at the recent convention.  Reverting to tlie fall of his administration in .19 16, Mr. Bowser  said that at that time maiiy good  Conservatives had voted .'against  their party in the, hope of getting  good government. Their experience  since had made them pretty well  unanimous that the administration  then elected had not made good. It  was. not his purpose to hold a political post mortem, but he predicted that at the next election as many-  Liberals would desert their party as  there: had been .Conservatives in  1916, and he Avould not say th-;  would be remis^.-in Jtheir duty to the  public in so doing.  Assuming then that the. Oliver  regime will come to an end when  next it gees to the people, the question arose, who''will succeed them?  Will it be a labor ��������� administration,  the 0. B. U. or the Internationa;  union men, a soldier party, indep-  jiulents, or farmers? The recent election in Ontario, which he regarded  :s merely a symptom of the gener-  il unrest, had produced class government by farmers, but even then On-  :ario is in the unfortunate position  jf not having given the farmers a  working majority, a.n no government can lay down a sane and courageous policy unless it has a majority to  carry out- its  measures.  Apart from that - consideration  government by farmers or any other  class is not representative of all the  people, and therefore it is' a most  dangerous form- of- government.- He  had/nothing-to-saiy against the farmers, who are the backbone of- any  country, and they are entitled to pro  per representation, but neither they  nor any other class have a right to  iet up a government which is not representative of all the other classes  The farmers of* Ontario want to  tear down the tariff wall which has  been the upbuilding of this great  Confederation since Sir John McDonald formulated the national policy, but the farmers of British Columbia want to keep it up. Mi.  Bowser forcibly illustrated the clash  of interests on the tariff question  as between farmers and consumers  in the Prairie Provinces and in British Columbia. ������  Commenting on the prevalent habit of denouncing party politics, he  instanced the farmers of Ontario  proclaiming that they would abolish  the party caucus, using the word as  if it were some form of cur3e from  which the country was suffering. Yet  with the reins of government unexpectedly thrust upon them, the firm;,  thing they did 'was to meet in private conference to form their cabinet. . In other - words, they held a  party caucus, a perfectly proper  thing for them to do. Some of the  men chosen as ministers had no seats  and the usual procedure was followed of seeking elected representatives to* sacrifce themselves, in all  probability in consideration of a snug'  post on seme royal commission. All  of which is precisely the methods  followed by the old "parties, and proper methods too. Mr. Bowser submitted that instead of forming new  parties it would be better to retain  the old party organization and rejuvenate them in accord with the  changed spirit of the times.

Mr.  Bowser.declared that it is dangerous  wheir a government has ;o dicker  with an opposing - group bofore.it  can introduce measures it considers  for the good-of the country.  In short, he.declared that-little as  !'.e cares for Harley Dewart, it would  liave been better for Ontario had he'  been  returned with a good working  majority.  The reason ��������� Mr. Bowser analyzed  'he Ontario situation so exhaustively  was that the same danger threatens  British Columbia, and. at this stage  he believed the people should not experiment .with group government, bu:  should stand by -party which will  assume tlie duties and'-the responsibilities of this critical time. The  ".ogical party to do this, he asserted  is the Conservative party, .and if it  has not always been what it should  the way to remedy that condition  is not to stand outside, to criticis-.  and to branch out info a multitude  of new parties, but..to join-in Lhe reorganization and make die party  cleaner  and stronger.  Turning  to the present provincial  ���������government,   Mr:   Bowser   said   that  ,-its- record is plain before the people  ! and-no man .who. is honest with him-  i self   but   must  admit  that   it  is   an  'incapable administration,  wh'vh.has  ��������� been  borne  by     this    province    for  three   very   bad     years     and     from  which   the  province  may     have     to  suffer for two more years.    On this  occasion  he  did   not  propose  to   go  into  the  figures  of  the  public  debt  if lie did, he would startle his aud-  , ienee.    But   it-has   always   been     a  i matter  of   wonder  to   him   how   the  | Hon. John Oliver, a man who is extremely  careful  about    his    private  I expenditures, can stand by and calm  , ly see the people's money poured out  jrecklessly and  care'i^my..,  Ana  tmt  I in face of the fact that he went into'  [office on a  policy of retrenchment.  j     PTe   instanced   the     Land     SettVo-,  ! ment Board.    The one groat need of  this country is more production, and  in   1915,   Mr.   Bowser's   government  established a policy of loans to farmers  under  the  Agricultural  Aid  Act  Mr.     Oliver's     administration .   had  wiped   out   the   Board   appointed   to  administer this act, and had substituted a more expensive board of more  members   with   higher   salaries .-���������a  true example of Oliverian retrench-  AGBNT   FOR   HEADSTONES  P!iGne< Connection.rMission City  ment. But that by the way. The  present administration had- complete  ly-forgotten- the original purpose * r  .the act, .and had tUiiied..to the tasn  of clearing ..lands, and. establishing  what' they called soldier..Settlement  Board under the chairmanship of  Mr. Nelems, who .is well known in  this Valley and in -Vancouver, had  fexpended the huge-sum.-of. a million  and three quarters-of dollars. This  expenditure is absolutely without  check, it does not. even appear in  the public accounts,.- -.As leader or  ciie Opposition, Mr.,,Bowser is unable to check these expenditures.  But the plain fact is that this  board has expended, a million rxid  .three-quarters on ���������'.'Soldier Area>s"  and. yet, as ..far..as he 'could learn,  not a single soldier in this' province  has ever been - placed on a single  plot of government land,-under this  board.  ��������� The policy laid, down .in British  Columbia in 191.5 had been established in Saskatchewan,in 1917. At the  end of ��������� eighteen months^ that province-had loaned $1,500,000 t o 1500  farmers and only, some .$,3 500 . oi  due .payments had. not been made.  Moreover, a million dollars of this  money had'been subscribed by the  people of Saskatchewan on a provincial bond issue. It would be useless  for the Oliver, government to attempt  to sell its bonds in British Columbia  because the people have no confidence in Mr. Oliver, but with a .government which held the confidence  of tlie people, mousy could be secured within the province for such a  purpose, as witness the success of tho  Victory Loans. . Mr. Bowser atlvo- .  cated a revival of the original purpose of the Agricultural Aid Act of  1915.  Coming to a, subject of vital local  interest,-Mr. Bowser recalled that at  the. by-election when. Hon. Mr. Barrow was returned, the. government  had definitely \. promised that it  would back '.the'. Sumas...reclamation  scheme.. Then, they' ,had 'proceeded  to fool, around ,with a. few surveyory  and transits in. the mad and recently  a meeting had been, held at .Huntingdon. But as he,read the prosa  accounts the proposition now is entirely different. ��������� The provincial  government is not prepared to back  the scheme with a-.single, dollar. The  properby owners must assume the  burden. Bonds must be issued by  tho Sumas dyking commissioners.  (Continued on Page Five)  n  V.

That  was a good comparison to make from  his point of view. But Mr. Oliver  had failed to quote the figures for the  following years, when his administration had got into its sliidc. !i.  1 fi '9-20 expemliiureu on civil serv;ec  salaries were $2,279,000 lor n ��������� c-  pulalion ol -iOO.OOO poop1:1.

One of the crimes charged against  the   previous   Conservative     government  was it:; use of commissions but  >uiw there aic commissions on every  thing.      And    some of    them    are a  joke.

Tt.,  should not the people  the  _-  hold a meeting to talk ihe matter  over, with a view to having the most  convenient i lace choson, in case that  the authorities might decide some  c:.av in the near future'to span the  Fraser with a magnificent trafiic  bridge at Mission City.  When a road  or bridge is wanted^  the people usually make their wants-  known.    We boost for a double ferry  service, a continuous servics, a new  -road,   etc..   why   not   let  the  people  ���������tret  busy   en  deciding  which  is  the  niost 'convenient place  for  a bridge.

But the main point is to  keep the question of a bridge acrow  the, Fraser a live one, and chat wouid  be a good scheme.  Most old timers will remember  the meetings held about tbe Dewdney  Trunk road but for instance when the  provincial government thought it was  ready to build the road did they  not say, something like the following, 'wc are ready to build the road  sr������vou people can agree upon what  you want.' A meeting was held very  shortly after this and the matter decided;" and a road was built to thc  Stave river and a new bridge bulit.  This is a matter which the board  of trade might well" take up at its  next meeting.
