BATES. Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, J UN;C ;:J, .191.!)  The present unrest throughout ;he country  is these days causing,much comment, and it is  hard to know just wheret ho trouble lies and  the remedy for it all.    Labor complains about  the injustice of capital, and capital sometimes  -wonders if labor, especially the labor leaders,  are serious in their demands.    And there you'  are between the devil and the deei> sea.    But  it seems to'us that when it is' all over the big  ��������� man, the man with capital, will be bigger than  ever, and have much more his own way. The  present conditions would appear to point to  the elimination of the small man in business,  as he cannot stand the financial pressure too  long-.    Probably he has only his business ability and energy to back him up���������and if he cannot get the business he is bound to go to the  wall. We   believe it is in the interests of the  laborer that there should be as many small  men (men with limited capital) doing business  as possible���������they would be easier to handle  than the big fellow.  present unrest; some blame the capitalist,  and.some say that it is the fault of the man  who will not give a full day's work for a full  day's pay, and Satan finds mischief for idle  hands to do. ' There are a lot of us who would  like to, keep on working as industriously as  we have-been for the past five, ten, fifteen or  twenty years, or more, so that when old age  comes we'can spend a few years in rest and  quietness. The present system may be wrong  and it pertainly ruts many injustices, but better grin and bear than cause our neighbor to  starve for a while,' while changing the system.  We believe that the present unrest will have  a very. great, ten d en<iy to in ako en pi ia 1 timid.  If a man has enough capital these clays to  start big business it looks as though he were  courting trouble to start anything in the way  of developing a big industry. We cjanuot  eliminate the capitalist; neither can we  do away with the laborer. Both a:e in every  way .essential so far as we can p;ee, but the  .capitalist can let his money work ;\t very low  interest, thus making times very rard for all  Our eve of great prosperity in Can, da may be  the eve of a time of very great dep: ossion, unless we get matters straightened ��������� >ut and get  down to business.  Some people blame the government for the  True our governments are not all good, and  some of t hem are undoubtedly bad, and we do  not have to go away from home to    find    a  representative who misrepresents the people.  Supposing the opinion of the people of Dewd-  ney was to be taken on the. spiir of the moment, how could our misrepresentative Honest  John Oliver tell what the people think on any  subject.    He is a stranger among us and prefers to'remain so~-to misrepresent us rather  than represent us.    He. is very dilatory about  getting or keeping in close touch with those  who elected him to represent us���������not misrepresent us. We fee]  sure that if the lion, member knew the public opinion of Dewdncy riding  he would immediately .seek to sever his'connections with the riding and seek representation where he would know his ability    was  recognized and appreciated.    Such might, be  the case with other members of parliament..  Wo have.been hoping in Dewdney for years  that our misreproi-'.antatiye would    do    some  things he was asked to do, but we' have waited  in vain���������some day he will want to smile on us  and we will get even by not smiling back.  Now we think N "w Westminster would be an  excellent place for John Oliver to misrepresent after the ne.-;f" -lection.

Conn. Atkinson, spunking on the subject said  that ho believed 'oil did good if it  ,was properly handled and advised the  appointment of sonic qualified man to  have charge of the putiing'on of the  oil. K. R. Harris was appointed to  act as supervisor of this work. Mr.  ' Hill also asked the council for a graut  for ihe Abbotst'ordrSumas fair that is  to be held in September lor the Jlrsc  time since 1914. -A grant of $100  was   made.  The following appropriations were  made. To Cdun. Atkinson, $50 and  a coil of wire for the Mather road;  $50 for tho Straiton and Clayhurn  road, half of which is to be spent  east and half west, of the school, and  planking for repair work on bridges.  Coun. DeLair got an appropriation j  of $40 for the Munroe road near the  G. N. It. trestle.  An appropriation of $ J 00 was made  to Coun. Austin for    work    on    the  Angus Campbell road.  |    .Coun. Delair reported that the adjoining municipality of Matsqui was  I willing to spend dollar for dollar up  j to  $200  on the boundary road. The  i municipalities will co-operate in this  work, ieach spending $200, while Sumas will spend an additional $50 on  the Colwell road,  the necessary, appropriations being voted.  An   indemnify   bylaw   was   passed  which   sets  the  indemnity     of     the  reeve at $200 and that of each of  tho councillors at $150. Previous to  this year the reeve's indemnity had  been the same as the councillors, and  Reeve Fooks was averse to any increase but the council felt that as all  other municipalities paid the reeve  more than the councillors this one  should do the same, and the reeve's  objection was overridden.  . .The'clerk was instructed'to register the pound bylaw which had been  paused at the last meeting of the  council.  Miss York was employed to act as  caretaker to the municipal hall; the  salary will fluctuate with the number of times the building is used in  a month. ' '  '  Tenders for bridge on the Larnson  road   extension   wero   received   and  opened.    The tenders had been called  for two styles of bridges of concrete  and pile foundations.     L. O. Larnson  offered to construct a pile foundation  bridge   complete   for   $537.50;   Jack  Wright offered to do the cement work  for $225 and II. R. Harris offored to  haul the lumber and build the superstructure for $65 if the council would  buy   the  lumber.       Figures  showed  this to be the cheaper of the two proposals and the tenders "of Wright and  Harris were accepted.    The work will  not.  be started  until  after the  high  water  has  receded.  HELP  TO   CLEAN  UP  BRITISH COLUMBIA  (Continued Prom Page One)  business men and    earnest   citizens, j  may  justify its existence .and make;  its presence  felt in  the community.,  Abundant Opportunity for Social  Service in British Colubmia  Like others, no doubt, 1 have, joined this club experimentally. I was  unconvinced as to the wisdom of joining, even after Mr. S truth era had  used his expository and pursuasive  powers upon me.    Ho invited me to  the first meeting, however, and 1  was influenced towards. joining 'by  a statement of Mr., N. G. Neil as to  effective work dene by Kiwaiian.i in  chockir.i: _voters and voting in another Canadian city. I' concluded  that if tlic-Kiwanian Club���������no mat-  tor where or how it originated���������:was  to be an active force in the community for business and social righteous-  nes, there was' abundant opportunity for its service in British Columbia.  As a Canadian, and a ' Scottish  born son of the Lmipire,-l have something of couusinly regard and family  criticism for citizens of the United  States; but I believe that, witht nations as with men, we should be alert  to emulate their good qualities, and  careful to avoid their mistakes..  Whatever our international affiliations, each Kiwanian Club, T believe,  is a separate entity, and m'ay'dcvclop  its own life and work, with the view  of being most effective in its local  service.  For information, and without  criticism, one' may���������on the inside���������  raise a question as to why this club,  formed about the end, of the year,  and collecting an iuiation fee of $10  per member, with well over 100 members, should levy its half-yearly feo  of $ 1.0 as duo at 30th January instead  of 30th June? * * I find added  point to that ��������� question by observing  from the Kiwanian "Torch" that the  Toronto Club had an initiation' fee of  only $10 and yet its yearly dues are  only $15.'  Now, as 'to application outside the  club of. its aims, objects and ideals  One may suggest that Vancouver  club should at once -begin to'take  steps to justify its existence municipally and provincially" by. putting  these ideals into practice. *      * ���������  This organization will naturally be  ready to take part with others in any  large social or philanthropic movement, effort or , enterprise , affecting  the welfare'of the city or country as  awhole. .-That .is a general assumption, but,we must be more definite.  Mutually informing, encouraging  and inspiring to its membership in  the first place, the club ought to face  unflinchingly the conditions in city  and " province. These conditions,  judging by what has recently been  "half-revealed and half-conceded,"  aro such as to challenge the collective heroism of spirit of the members.  'Sensible men do not besmirch their  country or community; but they are  Kiwanians as to Prohibition and its  'method of application. Tint ��������� I believe we will all be agreed that lawyers or judges who let mere "t'ech-  'riicalities". or the prejudice of prece-������ ,  dent interfere with flic administra- ���������  tion of justice are not a credit to  any court or country.  British Columbia be.the unique distinction of debarring clergymen from  sitting as members of its Legislature  While not speaking as a counsel for,  the clergymen���������unless in the sense  that 1 believe in fair treatment for all  .citizens���������one might fittingly suggest  that if one professionally-discoursing  class must be kept outside parliament  the ban might ;be transferred for a  time to the legal fraternity. -Jn the  meantime some practical business  'men might get a few Acts on record  that would speak for themselves, and  be understood and interpreted "without a historical- review to support-  them. ���������' .       ���������  Come what may, let us practise  ideals Kiwanian ��������� by preparing to'  help to clean ' up British Columbia,  municipally and provincially.  We should also work for a higher  standard of citizenship.      The standard for foreigners and children born  of  foreign  parents  must  be   raised.  Better also if the voting age<-for all  he not under  25.    Measures  should^'  be taken to see-that electors,are a-,  wake, not only to the rights and pri-4l  vilcges.'but to the duties and responsibilities of citizenship *    *     *     ,  Jn this connection, regulations might  with advantage, be introduced where  by  citizens  not exercising  the franchise at an election would be liable  to  havo their  names  struck  off  the  roll.  Why should not this Kiwanian club '  independently take steps to select citizens whom -it might invite, recommend, and work for as candidates,  not for the perpetuation of pe tty  partisanship in city and State, but for  the extension of its idels in social  service? .   .  How can it be done? It is for our l  officers and committees to consider,,  consult and advise concerning ways  and means in the first place; but the  whole membership of tho club might  be formed into an Outlook or Vigilance committee to collect and collate  facts concerning municipal' and provincial affairs, and regarding men  qualified beyond quostion to represent British Columbia, and to help it  attain a place in the Empire and the  world which shall be in keeping with  poor patriots who igftore the "unfin-|an that is best in "British" and all  ished,mysteries" which tarnish their  country's fame. * ���������* * Municipally, we have had curious incidents,  and promised procedure in one case  seems to have boon followed by promise of a CO- nfer-action in another  *     *     *    Is that tho end?  that is fair in "Columbia," which, let  us never forget, is after all a daughter nation of our own home-land.  , Thus may British Columbia come  to lead tho Dominion and Influence  all British America by helping to  make all America more intensely and  In provincial law and politics, also   ,    Ungl   BriUsll  culiar things have happened.
