He urges  that' Canadians should send  them parcels of food ancl clothing, and he assures us that the  parcels are delivered.

A. BATES, -       - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, .J UN 10 <)  Mi i 0  Two Kniirolv different  Few have'not taken  Vancouver election in'  dall.    Those who have  to the story-cannot but  views of I lie "plugging.'?  a keen interes't in the inquiry into, the  wliilli Macdonald was elected over Tis-  had an opportunity to read both sides  help thinking that the whole affair is'a  MISSION CITY LOCALS  disgrace to our fair young province and that the parties who are  responsible for the bringing into the province of the Seattle-  scum should be delegated to spend the balance of their days in  private life as totally unfit to havee a part in the making of the  .laws of British Columbia. We are all broad-minded enough  to. look at this matter from an entirely non-partisan point of  view and render a verdict of 'punish the plugger parties."  We have all read what the Mainland papers.have to say, but  sometimes it is well to read what others say;    We, give the  view of the. two Victoria .dallies, The Colonist (Conservative,  and The Times (Liberal):        .'���������'���������''  What the Times lias to,.say:  "The Vancouver election report charges the Liberals with  wholesale plugging through the activities of J. L. Scott. Mr.  Bowser, however, took mighty good care that Scott should not  appear as a witness. He announced, aud his press was instructed to publish the announcement in glaring headlines, that if  Scott'came here he would be arrested. He guaranteed immunity to the gang of Seattle witnesses, "Dynamite Jack," but there  was to be none for Scott. Wc might ordinarily expect that the  committee would have wanted to hear from Scott more urgently  than from anybody else, yet Mr. Bowser was determined to' keep  him away at all costs. ��������� Knowing the facility .with which witnesses could be induced to perjure themselves, he had every reason to be alarmed at a threat of prosecution.  Dynamite Jack Sullivan visited Kamloops a month before the  election while Mr. Bowser was there. Two days before the election found,him in Seattle, where he was interested in a place  , known as the Regina Hotel. This fragrant establishment was  the rendezvous, of some of the men stated to be impersonators.  The same steamer that brought these men to Vancouver numbered Sullivan..among'its passengers. The purser of the steamer swore that he gathered from what he saw that they were Sullivan's gang. Members of Mr. Tisdall's organization kneew they  were coming. They had been advised on the Monday before the  election, and Sullivan sent wireless messages from the boat to  Vancouver describing the party, some of whom stopped at the  , Irving, Sullivan's hotel, well known as a factor in the machine.'  Mr. Bowser ist he head of the justice department of the province; he is in the control of the provincial podice; his friends  at Ottawa have charge of the immigration service, yet although  the number, names, descriptions and whereabouts of these men  were known to the Tisdall organizers no serious steps were taken to interfere with their operations! Some of them roomed over  the store of Mr. Welsh, one of the Bwser candidates in the general election, ancl Mr. Welsh suffered from the same overpowering inertia.  Nothing was said about plugging by the defeated party im-  omediately after the election; no charges were made against the  Liiberals, although another contest was about to .take place in  Victoria. Nothing was heard of the 'matter until Mr. Bowser's  accusation of whoesale impersonation was made m' the legislature. When did the bright idea strike the desperate political  gambler across the Bay that his victorious opponent, the man  whom he hates so savagely, could be destroyed by the menas?  How long did it take Sullivan to round up the "boys" who with  "Kelly" at their head came to Vancouver to vote for the "wet"  candidate to prevent a "lot of good fellows going out of business?" How long did it take these offscourings of humanity, the  star witnesses, to learn their stories? Were .the general public  as stupid as Mr. Bowser, most of the self-deceived men, believes  it to be the report might be good campaign material. But the  public is uncannily alert and logical these days and will draw  ' its own conclusion."  Then The Colonist says:      -       '  It is impossible for any right thinking man to regard without  regret the disclosures made in the course of the inquiry into the  fraudulent practices of the Liberals in the Vancouver by-election. No matter what his political affiliations may be, no one  can have read the sordid details brought out under oath' without  a feeling of profound disgust. The evidence directly connects  Mr. M. A. Macdonald, the Liberal member for Vancouver in the ^  late House, with'the nefarious actions. As to the extent of that  connection, or of his knowledge before or after of the plots  hatched in his behalf, we shall express no opinion, but if we  give him the full benefit of every doubt legitimately raised by  his denials under oath, there remains a residuum that forms a  unique record in British Columbia politics. * * *  * * * Nnique expedients were resorted to by Mr. Macdonald and those acting on his behalf. Mr. Macdonald himself admits that he personally hired and paid detectives, giving them  carte'blanche as to what they should do to assist in the election.  That men were brought from Seattle and paid to personate voters on Mr. Macdonald's behalf has been established beyond all  chance of contradiction. That a gang of disreputable people  were induced by payments of money to violate the law in order  to secure a majority for the Liberal candidate cannot be questioned. That some of the persons so employed occupied more or  less intimate relations to Mr. Macdonald was also shown. We  are not suggesting, for there is no evidence to support the statement, that Mr. Macdonald himself was a party to these fraudulent methods, ancl we are dealing only with proved facts, and  avoiding insinuations, it may be true, and we hope it is'true,  that Mr. Macdonald is to a certain extent a victim to the unscrupulous men, who seem to have possessed his confidence-  'but the public can only deal with things as they are made  ���������known, and the whole miserable story is one out of which the  .

C.  Editorial (Continued)  (Cojntimicd  from Page Two) t  Lil)eral candidate in  Vancouver, whose monumental    majority  was the astonishment of the whole electorate, comes with shattered prestige and doubtless with a sore heart. We wish to say  nothing to impute lo him any intentional wrong, but he has  learned that'"one cannot'touch  pitch without being defiled."  The character of the witnesses, upon whose testimony these  disclosures so damaging to the Liberals of Vancouver were^es-  tablished, has been ancl doubtless will bo assailed by the Liberal  press; but it must not be forgotten that the more they condemn  these men, the more they condemn themselves for having employed them. They chose to rely upon the assistance of such  men to elect their candidate, ancl it does not now lie in their  mouths to object that these men are dishonorable. If they were  not', they would not have been willing,to accept Liberal money  to clo that party's dirty work. But whatever the character of  these Liberal workers, the story told by them is substantially  consistent throughout and forms the most discreditable page in  the whole history, of Provincial politics.
