LL'J  ; L  li. C. Long Distance���������Sft.  will raise taxes  seventy'  PER   CENT  (From the Frascr Valley ...Record)  The much advertised meeting of  . Premier Oliver in Mission City was  held Ja3t, evening in the ;, Victory  Theatre with an aurience of about  150 people. A desperate last. . call  had been sent 'east and-west, and also south of the Fraser to come so  that 'our premier would have an  audience.' How the call was heeded  is judged by_ the attendance.' The  permier was given a good hearing,  Mission City believes in allowiug a  ��������� politician to express his views, then  make the decision as to the argument  later.  The matter of securing a chairman  had been a difficult matter, but finally the president of the local association was the only man who had the  nerve to sit on the platform, the  chairman Mr. Allister Thompson who  introduced the speaker and closed  the meeting did not feel that he  could conscientiously face the people  while the premier spoke and took a  seat in the audience, saying amen to  a couple of wild statements of the  premier.  Before starting out on his land  policy for the returned soldier, the  premier admitted that there had been  rumblings of discontent not only at  Mission City but in Maple Ridge at  his not having come before to give  an account'of his stewardship. He  had however tried to arrange a public meeting before but had failed. Ho  would make the present one memorable by stating that it wns his intention to increase the taxes 7 5 per  cent unless the people of 13. C. stopped asking for good roads. "I" have  increased the (axes but unless you  are content to do with less up they  go again.  The speech was not an outline of  a policy of a government that looked  with a broad open mind upon legislation for the good of the people. The  egotism of the premier was nauseating. "I" did this and "I"- did that  and "I" will do so and so might be  summed up as the tenor of his whole  talk to his audience of 15 0, many not  voters of Dewdney.  The weary look of Premier Oliver  was shown in his words: It may not  make me popular to raise the taxes  but "1" don't care much whether it  does or not. If you do not trust me  you will have an opportunity to trust  some one else and I would not bo  sorry to be relieved of my obligation." He told the audience in as  many words that the position of premier was a full-sized man's job and  "10 M���������.Residence Ph'one  he had not deceived them, "I" am  not guilty and "I" make, no apologies.'' . ' .  Premier Oliver; started  by.telling  how the former government had allowed the land to go.,into the hands-  of the speculators butft&at.this gov-  ernnreii't had promised"''"af^'dii'fererit  state of affairs.  '   Settlement    areas  had been formed and were now. a-:_  vailable, not at the speculative prices  but at the  market value.       'I" had  the-honor of drafting the bill myself,  said the premier and we are in position to expopriate land    should',   we  see.fit.    One fomer speculator    was  mentioned as now being a land booster  for settlers.       40,000  acres  had  been placed on the mai'ket at ? G. 2 o  per acre and since the armstice had  been  signed hundreds    of    settlers  wore going  on the land.    The  government advocated community settle-,  ment as it was a saving in the cost  of building roads,  schools,  administration.    "I" want the largest number  of settlers with the smallest a-  mount of roads possible.    The present government    had    incoroporated  the former government's legislation  re loans.    We can   engage    in    the  clearing- of lands,, and have done so.  But our idea was to   -preserve    the  credit of the province while the war  was" on.    We have several settlement  areas.    "I" visited one last,week at  Courtenay where there re 17 5 return  ed soldiers at work.    It may bo im-  ���������possible to clear the land at a profit  but we are giving it .a trial.

At a moting in  Vancouver the returned soldiers did  clap their hands three times at me.  That does not look as if they had no  use Toi me. Some came to Victoria  to ask me to resign and it really did  hurt me to refuse them. What reason had the soldier to be dissatisfied  \fith me, wo are buying lands and giv  ing good wages while clearing it. "i"'  have built houses for the rotumcrt  soldier. "I" offered the Dominion  government laud to give the soldiers  Was that giving cause for disaatisfa-  c'i'-nV 7he Dominion government refused to take advantage of my legisla  ti;n. "I." wired Sir Rob'.rt Borden  and had a conference at Ottawa. Wo  talked four days and "I" challenge  F;i"i:d Pates that th3 returned sc-iu-  ier has no kick against me. Friend  Bowser echoed by Friend Bates says  the returned soldier says this government is unpopular.  The premier's land policy would  indicate that all the returned soldiers must be farmers to enjoy the  privileges offered by the Olicer government-���������get land and $5 00 besides,  all for nothing.  jjoca'l matters were lightly touched  The farmers of Nicomen had gotten  more from my government than during all the time the former goyeriT-  raent was in power. "I" guaranteed  their bonds. (Amen, Bro. Thompson)  "There are more ways of benefitting  a community than a little road money." . "I" travelled over the road between here and -Vancouver yesterday  and they were ��������� awer in' bQtier condition, declared Mr. Oliver.  The premier dealt with the P. G.  E. Told how he had served writs on  all in connection with the railway except Stewart who was in France serving his country. They had been after him for a year but the Allies could  not spare him. That bunch of capitalists had the best of legal advice but  they did not get one cent of profit in  connection with that road. "I" got  the equipment, the railway and the'  townsites. The railway is hanging  like a millstone around our necks but  "I" made them account for all the  mousy for work, material and supplies. The railway is a burden forced  upon this government by the late  government and the obligation by  the late government does not make  us in any way responsible to the people of B. C.  The premie dealt with the Canadian Northern. Tho province was  now out of it unless the Dominion  government wont broke and "I" can  go broke just as quick as they can,  declared the premier.  The finances of the province was  next dealt with and it develops that,  the debt of the province is now only  about $25,000,000 after the Oliver  government has increased it -nonio-  thing like $13,000,000 according to  the premier's statement.. $2,188,-  275 of that was for interest, $2,442,--  000 for tho P.O. E. $648,000 for the  Land Settlement board. $37 2,000  was advanced to soldiers for land.  $790,000 to keep the receiver out of  South Vancouver, and we are going  to keep S. Vancouver from the Shy-  locks whether they like it or not,  and "I" am going to put S. Vancouver on her feet again.  The revenue of the province had  decreased from twelve and a half  million in 1912 to $6,291,000 in  1916. We have to raise the taxes  agaip.  The credit of tho province had  been preserved so that the province  could borrow at 5.3 5 per cent and  the Dominion government had to pay  5.90 per cent for seventy-five million.

A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,  JULY  18,  1919  Saturday, Canada will celebrate Peace after  war. Throughout the country the glad shout  wlil go forward that Canada is glad.that the  war is over. But so far as Canada is concerned we knew not what war meant to millions of  people. True our boys fought, bled and died  but few Canadians who remained at home  fully realized what war has meant. Nevertheless that will not prevent us'from rejoicing on Saturday. There are but- few homes  that the war has not meant something to  remember the past five years by, and we can  all rejoice according to our knowledge of what  the war has-mean!: to us, and thai, is'about  the way we will enjoy peace day after war.  Let's all givef hanks that the war has been  ended; the peace treaty signed and our enemies defeated.  Most of the boys from this district have  returned who will return���������some are in France  Saturday we shall show our welcome to those  who have returned. The soldier who voluntarily enlisted, has come through the war and  returned to his home���������Canada.���������deserves every consideration, and now that peace has  been declared he should have his reward just  as soon as possible.  ���������Let us endeavor to keep the soldier question  out of politics. It is not fair to the man who  has helped to save the country against Kaiser- ���������  ism, that the' politicians should further endeavor to use the soldier's vote and influence  in the game of politics. For -this reason we  would like to see the returned soluier get a  settlement that will make him an independent man and free to do as he likes with his  money.  We do not wish to cast any reflections- on  the land scheme now being carried out of  placing the men upon the land, but in some  cases the soldier is not being dealt with in  that free open manner that makes him independent. The man who borrows money  to buy his land, whether from government or  other source is not a free man until that  money is paid back, more especially is this'  the case where agricultural -pursuits have  not been followed previously, .lie is going  to in many cases pay dearly for his experience. He has paid much if he liar fought in  the trenches or served on the battlefield and  why should he be asked to give so much of  life for good citizenship?  t������. .,i...i.������rm.i������������.-..-   ��������� ��������� ���������-��������� ,1.1  . .  Premier Oliver has paid his own constituency a visit���������a visit. lie speaked a spoke  in the Victory Theatre���������it did not mean much  of a victory for him. Saturday he visited in  Comox Valley and spoke another little spoke.  Later on he may visit other parts of the districts. All this speaking is surely going to  cost-the country an election, for surely John  ���������Honest John���������Premier John, is not going  to devote all this energy to travailing about  for no purpose at all!  it was quite noticeable last evening that  our premier did not speak with that assurance  that he had done the best he couid for this  fair province during the time he i:.as been at  the head of affairs that he might have done.  All the past bombast of what he would do  has a kind of died out, and his speech here  reminds us of what one of his best supporters said of him not long ago. 'John Oliver  was a good man in the opposition but as a  leader of men he is not a success.' True.  Oliver has not yet got away from his talk  while on the hustings of the election of I91f������  abusing the Dowser government. iViany of us  are tired of hearing that old story, we want  to hear more of what Oliver and his party  are going to do to develop this fair province.  During the war we suffered him to raise the  taxes,,but now that the war is over we want  him to do something more than raise the taxes  The speech was indeed a poor apology for  ��������� a'man .who has for a-quarter of a century  publicly proclaimed that he was an upholder  of the people's rights. Honest .lohn looked  weary of his job and stated to the audience ho  would willingly be relieved of his obligations  as he could not hold a full-sized man's job.  'Tis said that Premier Oliver .inspected the  roads while on his way to Mission City. He  must have been impressed with them at this  time of the year, as undoubtedly many parts  of the road are good���������they could not be much  otherwise. This is the time of the year when  the roads should be good. We hope he also  was impressed with the way in which his  party is carrying on the work of road building. One would almost suppose that some  of Oliver's ancestors belonged to the mound  builders of which we have read���������he pays for  hauling gravel from hollows, an dputting.it  on the highest part of the road bed, thus  making the. hill higher than it was.before.  We were led to believe from what we have  seen and read that good roadbuilding meant  cutting down the grades. However since the  great European war methods have been undergoing a change, and this may be one of  the great changes during the coming period  of reconstruction. (?)  Nothing in the premier's speech would indicate that he believed in much better roads.  The auto has come to stay for a few years  and wider roads would facilitiate business in  all parts of the province.  Education is one of the greatest forces in  the world today but some of the men with the  greatest advantages in the matter' of education have made a most dismal failure of their  lives. On the other hand there are men who  have never learned to write more than their  own name,, who are looked' up to for their  shrewd common sense, for their wealth, and  for their position in the community They have  attained 'high honors despite their" lack of  education. Why should.there be this difference, which seems to show .that a university  man is sometimes less fitted for the world  than a man with no training at school? The  secret lies in the fact that in one case an im-  porant item \of education was left out,and in  the other that most important item was the  only education that the successful man ever  received, and generally he had educated himself.  What is this secret part of education so  often overlooked, it is the lesson of Thrift  "Waste not, Want Not." "A stitch in time  saves Nine." "Many a mickle makes    a  muclde," and a hundred other old proverbs  teach the lesson of experience in the university of the world, and those who learn the  hard lesson, in time rise to the highest places.  Educate Yourself to spend less than you receive. Educate yourself to put by for a rainy  day andrior a great opportunity. The present Thrift Campaign is to bring the lesson  home to all Canadians. It is to place opportunity within reach of all.. The road to want  is paved with small expenditures, but the road  to wealth-is paved with little savings. Great  oaks from small acorns grow. Big fortunes  form humble beginnings.' The, man who  learned this lesson, often can'barely sigh his  name to a cheque but the cheque is worth  more than that of the man who learned all  else but this.  Bolshevism accords to the family-no such  sacred placeJn society as modern"civilization  accords to it. Conflicting reports have been  passing current during the last few months  relative to the nationalization of women by  the new Russian Government. Two or three  local Soviets have apparently thus degraded  the womanhood, of their particular districts,  but the central government has refrained  from adopting any such policy in the whole  nation. They have, however, promulgated  decrees relating to marriage and divorce  which practically establishes a state of free  love. Their. effect has been. 'to furnish a  vehicle for the leg lization of prostitution by  permitting the ai .mlment. of. the marriage  bonds at the whim of the parties, recognizing  their collusive purposes as a ground for the  severance of .the matrimonial'state. * * *  The apparent purpose of the Bolshevist government is to make the Russian citizen, and  especially the women" and children, the wards  and dependents of that government. Not  satisfied with the degree of dependency incurred by the economic and industrial control assumed by its functionaries, it has destroyed the moral obligation of the father to  provide, care for and adequately protect the  child of his blood and the mother of that  child against the misfortunes of orphanhood  and widowhood.���������Report of the United States  Senate Committee on German Propaganda  and Bolshevism.  The usual indications of federal and provincial elections are appearing on the political surface, says an up-country exchange. The  names o fprospective candidates are now being freely mentioned. Some of these possess  some merit, and might qualify to fill the positions to which they aspire with reasonable  dignity, while Others who are endeavoring to  push themselves to the front seem to have  no other recommendation than crass mediocrity and impudent ignorance. If the candidates of the latter type should unfortunately be sdected, the people in a few years  would be compelled to choose between Bolshevism and the poor house.

The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer-  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.  (THIS SPACE FOR SALE)  There are many who believe that  all big corporations and industrial  concerns only look to the material  Bide of things and work machine-  like for the production of wealth, regardless of the winter's suoav and unheeding of the summer's bloom. This  is often an erroneous idea, for it is  generally realized that man does not  altogether live by offices and pens  and papers and engines and other  accoutrements of labor���������he requires  trees and shrubs and flowers and  the loveliness of nature.  The Canadian Pacific Railway has  always paid considerable attention to  the development of garden plots  along its lines. It is just thirty  years ago since a C.P.R. employee  raised a few varieties of flower seeds  in his own garden, and distributed  them amongst his friends in the  service of the company, with the  object of promoting flower gardening  at the various station plots of the  railway. A vast advance has been  made since then; and now the company possesses a Floral Department  with headquarters at Windsor street!  Station, Montreal, and a Floral Committee which embraces members  from, the Eastern and Western lines.  It is under the guidance of this department that the various station  plots and other properties of the  company are cleared up and beautified. ' . Thousands of packages of  flower see..l3, bulb.';, trees, and shrubs  and large quantities of grass -eetds  and fertilizers have been distributed  during tho hist few years to station  agents, section foreman, caretakers  of round houses, and all employees  Uying on Uje property of ths  com-  (1) Cranbrook Station, B.C.   (2) Flowers Beautify the C.P.R.  at Calgary. (3) Guelph Junction, Ont.  pany. Travellers on the line observe  the happy results achieved. The  cuUiyatton work is done in all cases  by the employees themselves, who  In most cases acquired tha art of  amateur gardening by taking their  lessons from leaflets issued by the  Floral Department. The best material is always provided. Amongst  the varieties of trees supplied are:  Maple, birch, beech, poplar and cat-  alpa. Some of the shrubs are: wei-  gelia, berberries, laurel leaf willow  and sumac. Perennials distributed  are: Oriental poppies, iris, phlox,  veronica, gaillardia, lark spur, columbine, sweet william, and pinks.  Bedding plants used include: geraniums, coieus, cannas, pansies,  aster3, verbenas, petunias, and castor!  oil plants. Standard seed packets,  sent out contain: Nasturtiums,  alyssum, mignonette-, sweet peas, \  phlox and kochia. , Ferns and house  plants are given to the larger stations.    The establishment and main  tenance of the gardens and selection  of the seeds, bulbs, and plants ara  supervised by Mr. B. M. Winnegar,  forester of the company.  The encouraging influence of  flower growing on the C.P.R. during the last thirty years has in a  large me-asure assisted in the inauguration of floral societies all over  the country. There are hundreds of  C.P.R. officials connected with these  societies, and most of them received  their" first lesson in flower culture  at the C.P.R. flower beds. Flowers  have improved the railway stations,  and inspired by the beauty of tho  stations, residents of the town* have  planted flowers and improved tho  appearances of their homes. In  every division of the C.P.R. prizes  are given every year for the best  displays, and many of the3e amateur  railway gardeners have tried their  products with success against all  comers at the big Canadian and  American flower exhibitions,      ���������    -  *"pHE   Dominion   of   Canada   offers  you   every   -safeguard   for   your  investment in Thrift and War Savings  Si amp's.'

The Poultrymen's Union of British Columbia has opened up for business at No. 13S Water Street, Vancouver B. C, and the manager Mr.  Nash reports a steady increase in  business. Eggs are received at this  dopot candled and graded according  to the Canadian Standards, viz:  "Specials" "Extras" "No. Is" "No.  2s" "Dirties" and "Cracks". At  present the union is selling only U-  the wholesale trade.  This method of handling the poui-  tryman's products should if supported by the poultrymen, prove a great  boon to the poultrymen of B. C. and  stimulate to a groat extent our production.  It has been said by some that we  have too many eggs. That is so, if  the speaker refers to imported nggs.  rlhe statistics for 1918 show only  500.000 dozen more produced in B.  0. than imported. This of course  does not include tho foreign eggs  used by the bakers. We might stat?  hero, for the information of producers that it is the consensus of opin-  ,icn amongst the dealers that we do  not produce one-third the eggs us<?d  in B. C.

A fports committee is busy with a  big programme of sports for the day  of the fair and tho association has  set aside a handsome amount for ihis  purpose.  The question of a district exhibit  at New Westminster fair was dis-  . tscd and the following committee  was appointed with power to act: J.  B. Millar, T. H. Northcote, F. A.  Verchere, E.

The  offer has not yet boon accepted as it  looked too much like th-a Red Cros*  offer John.made on the hustings in  It is also noticeable that the premier uses the word "I" whon lie refers  to his government. 'My government'  would probably be more appropriate  words to use. He used "I" something like two hundred- times, and  unless one worn familiar with representative government, tho conclusion  could lie drawn that "Honest John"  was the Dictator for B. C. First  We have just returned from, the  Coast, where we went to investigate  ;he reason why B. C. quotations on  potatoes are so erratic and hurtful  to sales at this end. The prairie  market is bare of new potatoes, and  B. C. quotations were under competitive offerings. Prices opened at  $00.00'per ton this year, as against  $65.00 last year, and there was no  need for this from a competitive  point of view. Before a car was  ready to roll the $60.00 was reduced  to $08.00. and a sale at that price  made, then before rolling quotations  came from Vancouver of $5 5.00 per  ton, and rumored quotations of $50  per ton. The buyers of $58.00 per  ton car cancelled, and the whole  trouble was "long on quotations'  and Calgary short on potatoes. Our  investigation revealed that the trouble is caused by busy brokers and  Chinese growers. We. -were informed that 70 per. cent, of the spuds  grown in B. C. were raised by tho  Chinks, and that he was iniluenccr1  by a display of telegrams from the  prairie, showing that he was being  under-quoted there. It is the opinion of buyers in Vancouver that potato growers are going to be "trimmed" this year, which, in plain  words, means that prices will be shot  below tho cost of production, and potato growing will receive a setback  perhaps for years. We do not blame  the jobbers because they are out of  business. We do blame the growers  collectively for allowing .their industry to stand at "the mercy of outsiders, who control them, with thj  exception of the influence of Market  Commissioners on their behalf. The  majority of Orientals; they should  not be allowed to hurt this important  industry in B. C. It is an industry  capable of great expansion if properly organized. Another factor in  tho situation that will no doubt affect the potato market and that is  the placing of them on the free list  This was done to help "win the war"  by permitting American-grown potatoes to enter Canada to be evaporated for the American Government.  Now that the need is removed, and  all evaporator contracts cancelled,  will this duty be replaced?
