B. C: is making history. The  Battle of the Bay was fought oh  Sunday morning early July 20th between the Canadian.

COMING BACK TO B. C.  TO  ENTER   POLITICS  ������������������"-'srsu. ���������iSSHSSSS SSKSSFS v  "Fighting Joe" Martin is coming  back to B/C. and does not intend  according to reports to again run for  political honors in his present constituency in .England. Good for. Joe  we all thought he would get tired  of the system in Merry Old England  and who can blame him,, for. while  always a 'ladies' man' there is just  a possibility that the suffragettes  might get him sometime ��������� should he  still remain there The despatch  does not state that he does not intend to enter politics again in Canada  but it is sincerely hoped that he will  take.a hand in-,'the next provincial  election in this province There was  never so much fun in politics in this  province as, when Joe Martin had a  hand in the affairs in some way He  was called the stormy petrel of. the  political field of the province and  sure enough he was "stirring things  up but the people turned him down  but as things are going now it .might  be posible that he is wanted-in the  province to help out.in bringing it  back to normal .  Should Joe desire to run in the  province it is very likely that he  would be able to find a seat, and just  for the novelty of thing ft is believed  the. people would elect him with a  good majority. Although- a Liberal  in politics Mr. Martin, had always a  fondness for helping out our present  premier  Many in B. C. would welcome a  little excitement for a change.
