I consider that at any    time in tho  history    of    this., or    indeed of    any  country,  it is a  very  important  and  serious matter to move for the condemnation of the Government. There  are times, Sir,    when such    action is  doubtless  called   for  and  warranted,  and if, in my-judgment, the present  circumstances, the present conditions  the present situation, called for such  a vote, I should    not    refrain    from  giving it. I have not, however;  been  shown that the" present circumstances  the present conditions,the present situation, warrant  me in accepting tlie  invitation ��������� of Lire    gentleman on Lhe  other side of Lhe House.  I have said that 1 have Jistenecl in  . vain for sufficient reasons to give flu  vote solicited. Kailing to hear any ad  vanced, I have endeavoured in m;.  own mind to search for sufficien*  reason to justify 'that course. As 1  understand the situation, thret  reasons might possibly he urged on  behalf of a vote against the llo-.-o'-n-  mciit. If any one of these llirec war  sufficiently substantiated, the casting oi the vole asked for might Ire  justified. If two were substantia led  tho justification would be in creased,  and it all three were proven there  would be no escaping the responsibility. If is my purpose Lo examiire  the three reasons which appear to  me to be worthy of consideration by  every member of the House when. Lhe  vote is called for.  .1 believe. Sir, thai one reason���������-!  shall Lake them in order-���������that might  justify a- member's voting in fa\or of  t.iie amendment would bo the failure  of the Government of Lire day to implement its pre-election promises.  Let us consider carefully whet he:- or  not, tliis government should he condemned because of any 1'alluro to  implement its pre-election promises.

In requesting such a step Mr.  L. E: Taylor, a large "''fruitgrower of  Kelowna, stated that whereas the  Chinese, in 'leasing 500 acres, are  generally found to own 100 acres, it  is the other way about with the  Japs who own all they can ge^.. their  hands on. H. G. Perry, Fort George,  took tire same view of the situation,  passing comment on the' navy the  .Japanese nation is building which,  he -claimed, was /for some ulterior  motive. Alex Patersou, recounted  his views on the Delta situation, tho  member for Delta stating that the  Japs and Chinese control the markets of Vancouver and that the  white   man   had   something   to   learn  only  ;i  comparatively  small   |-r0U1   tjl0se  people  in  the  matter  of  for contingencies. |;i union. K.

Whatever  {the  Govornmeii!   failed  lo  do,   whatever mistakes Ihe Government made.  1 this can be said. The Government did  not  fail   to  implement  its  pledge   in  its deloriiiinaLioii  Lo    prosecute     the  war  to very utmost  an  dto  the  ve.rv  last. It did so in the face ot no small,  opposition;  it. did so when if was opposed   by   forces  thai,   1   lliiuk,   will,  in oiler years, regret the ar-loii (".ken  in their opposition to the purpooo of  (he government.  . 1 remember when this eiiy    iv;i������ ul-  ceni dining l!ii!'J, the total capacity , matter rested with Lhe white iven, j  of (;������������������-. power plants, and if there is | who did .not seem in any frame of i  any i;.-d-*:-lri. 1 activity .such as in I mind- to do so.

Bowser's sppech in the  legislature on the second reading of  the government liquor bih, were as  follows:  The  Conservatives have no .intend  tion   of   importing  politics. into   the'  discussion of the measure.- They will  do    their    utmost    to    make    it a8'  nearly, perfect as. possible.; !,  The people    voted for the   control-  and sale of liuor in sealed packages  and in government stores. They want  pure liuor as cheaply as possible, but  sold at a moderate profit.  The fifty-cent ' permit iri-ght  properlyt-be described as the "bootleggers' claused" The permit to  non-residents might t be' called' the  "American clause." There would-be  a week-end influx into Vancouver  and Victoria of people over, whom ;it.  would be difficult to exercise proper  control.  The clause regarding special per? .  mits is designed Lo encourage conventions Lo come to British Columbia, with the assurance that they will-  be able to get something else besides  grape  juice.  He doubted the constitutionality of  the clause to levy $2.r>0 per quart  on imports. It was intended to be prohibitive and exposed the whole" act'  Lo the danger of being disallowed at  Ottawa. He suggested, instead, that  a nominal licence fee be charged persons wishing to import l'o'r their own  use.  Instead of takng power to search  everybody's house for suspeeted  liquor the government should require  citizens to make a statutory declaration as to quantities in their possession.  He objected strongly to government, officials be������ng allowed to inr  tcrdict persons, and to remove Interdicts. Such a provision might  easily be turned into a Ulcerative  scourcc of revenue by unscrupulou-;'  officials. .  Tire legislature should be consulted as the membership of the eom-r-  mission, also tho legislature shou4d,  fix the salaries.  The power taken by the govern,  ment- to create a reserve, fund from  the profits m'ght mean in practise-  that the municipalities would get  very little. The municipalities es-.  pecially Vancouver and Victoria,  should receive a portion or the sums  collected for permits.  ���������lain  in  5 * a 3; ;<; nt-t la < ��������� i j e rs* st >(: j a l  "T        O.'i     Wedne  .(    o\ eiiing was  i  i  j  ial  Zenoleum.  \  -----A de-orderi/.er of national  .(ion;  also a disinfectant for  d-liie  (.ittaraiii.er  reputa-  - pen I fry  best   of  Animal Invioragtor  and  sfocl  its kind en  the market.  --lWoodbou.se)   one  of   the .be.yi   in-  vigor-aLers tor horses and cattle during the.

Municipal Union  approached him with the proposition that he inaugurate a new tax of fifteen dollars per head ior every person over eighteen years of age. Undoubtedly the delegation Avere'speaking only for municipalities-and not  for lhe unorganized districts of the province.  Had the municipalities been hit by the surtax oi  a few years ago we think they would have been very  careful about'making any foolish suggestions to an  expert on taxation methods. We believe it is an attempt to-teach-an expert tax politician a new trick and  a bad one at that. -   .  Had the Union devised some scheme oi taxing  those who are not heavily taxed at the present time it  would have been much more popular and much more  to the point. There are two outstanding classes of inhabitants of the province today who do not contribute  very much towards the provincial exchequer: One of  these is the man who does not own property but lives  in a rented house (sometimes he finds it cheaper to  move than pay rent) and uses our schools to educate  his children���������sometimes a very large family. The  other is that resident of our province who sends money  out of the province to his home land���������money that does  not help to develop our province, although earned here.  We will give one illustration of the latter; Taken  for gran led that there were 10,000 Chinamen in the  province earning $100 a month, lie lives on considerably less than that, and sends the balance lo China.  Supposing then that 10,000 Chinamen send.on an average of $50 ner month to China it would total something  like six million dollars going out of the province every  year. Easily twenty-live per cent of that amount  couid be taken in taxation and it would relieve the situation somewhat. He is not the.only alien who saves  up'for ihe day when he lakes his little pile to his home  land lo live for the rest of his days.  Why should an alien have the right to send money  out of the province without paying heavy taxes; or  why should a-non-property holder educate his children  al the expense of the properly holder?  The. above suggestions might look foolish to some  people-but we do not believe il looks as impracticable  as placing a further head tax on an already over-burdened property-holder.  A warning to purchasers of honey-  was given by Mr. W. H. Turnbull,  secretary of'the B. C. Honey Producers' Association at the closing-  session of the United Farmers' Association in Vancouver this week,  tie said that people were being  victimized in the purchase of this  commodity.- Honey from Guatemala  was being received here in large  quantities, and that in a 15-ton lot  the people were-paying for a ton they  did not get.'Twelve-pound' tins only  contained 11 pounds, and pound tins  are an ounce and a half short .

Did it consider and solvo  the problems which arise during tho  war, I have only to refer to  records of this House during  sessions of Ml IS and. 11)1 9. There can  be no question whatever but that'to  the very utmost of its ability, the Gov  eminent endeavored (o solve and did.  in no small degree, succeed in solving  the problems which arose during the  continuance of the war.  What about the    problems    which  have arisen since (he    declaration ol"  peace? 11" bread the-speech from the  from   Mission   slate.-   tliViL i throne corroctly. tbe^bulk of the minis l.:ul been sustained by :<������������' contained in that speech is center- |  in the past.  DKFKNCE.  leader of  the  Hon. T. A.    Crerar,  Agrarian    party in the    Commons, is  showing antagonism to any co-operation with Great Britian in matters of naval defence. He even regards    acceptance    of,   war    vessels  ronr Great, Dritian as a mistake.  This Is in lino with the traditional  attitude of the grain-growers, af the  Prairies. Before the Great'.. AVar  they saw no value .in supporting  Great Britain's efforts to maintain  her naval supremacy. But when the  war was on, it was the power of  England's* navy that permitted the  free flow of wheat to Europe, and  created exceptional prosperity for  the wheat farmers of the West. But  Great Britian cannot be expected to  carry the naval defence, burden  wholly as she has    in the . past, and  t is surely time for the Dominions  to come to some agreement with the  Mother Country on the question of  how the burden may be shared.���������  Columbian.  but I  incial  ually  every  TOO   MUCH   FOR   THE   EDITOR  .

AN  OLD  STORY  REVAMPED  A London Printer died and left  . quite an estate���������for a printer. He  had no family, or near relations, so  he willed all his earthly possessions  to be divided among an Englishman,  an Irishman and a Scotchmn. But the  will was conditional; each of the  legatees was to place five pounds in  the testator's coffin. On the day appointed (by fate), the Englishman  placed a five-pound note, as willed-;  the Irishman collected a number of  coins somehow���������shillings, sixpences  and coppers���������and made up his contribution of five pounds, which he  placed on the Englishman's fiver.  The Scotchman then mado" out a  check for fifteen pounds and, pocket  ing the ten pounds already deposited  threw in his check with the remark���������  "That's   easier."  A month later, when the Scotchman-perused his pass-book, he was  surprised to find that his check, had  been   cashed. *  The undertaker was a Welshman.  "Father," said the sharp small boy  ' "I saw a deaf and dumb beggar in  the street this morning, and he had  an impediment in, his speech."  "A deaf and dumb man with an  impediment, in his speech!" exclaimed father. "Don't talk nonsense, "on."  "But he had, father." insisted the  hov. "One of his middle fingers was  ed around problems which have  arisen since the declaration of  peace, so that .while two-thirds of  the programme has been,' virtually  completed, one-third is in process of  fulfilment. This is the fifth session  since this Government was elected,  and a most unique situations oh.ains.  1 have not beard, and I do not think  any' other, member in this House has  heard the charge preferred that the  Government, of the day has failed to  implement its pre-election promises.  In bygone days; such charges were  made; they were . sometimes fearlessly made and successfully proven:  know of no Government, prov-  or federal, which has so effect-  and successfully redeemed  pre-election promise as the  Union.Government has done since  1917. What does this mean? It means  sumplv that the Government, having  undertaken two-thirds of its programme and now endeavoring to  redeem the remaining one-third in  the closing years of its existence,  should be.voted out"of office and we  are able "to support-a motion of want  of confidence in it, because.it has redeemed - its pre-election promises.-  That is the reason. Conversely, what  follows? It follows, that when a Government fails to redeem its pre-election promises, when it utterly ignores  its pledges to the country, then it  should- be" continued in office indefinitely. That is a high standard of  national ethics to set'up before the  country! That my reasoning is correct follows clearly from what I have,  said; that is, if you vote a government out ofoffice because it keeps its  promises, you must vote to keep a  government in office because it fails  to redeem its promises.  A' second reason which arises in  my mind as a good and' sufficient  reason, if sustained, why I could vote  want of confidence in the Government of the' day is this���������the formu-  Jhition of charges, and accompanying*  ; proof of political graft or corruption  the misappropriation of public funds  for private purposes or any other  maladministration of- public funds  contrary to the will of Parliament  and the known will and desire of the  I people. As this matter has been so  thoroughly canvassed by the lion,  member for Frontenac, Mr. Edwards,  I shall hot dwell upon it at length;  but 1 shall only say that the country-  has yet to hear from any member of  the members of the Opposition one  single charge of misappropriation of  funds contrary to the will ot the  Parliament and to the oxpresscd  desire of the people of Canada. That  is something to-be proud of. If the  Union Government had done nothing  more than-that, it would have accomplished a great deal to have set  before the country an -example of a  Government against which, 'during-  the entire term of its administration;  no single charge had been laid with  regard to tlie misappropriation or  the maladministration ' of public  funds.  A third reason which has suggested itself to my mind as a good and  sufficient one why, if sustained, I  could vote against the Government,  is this���������the enunciation of such a  policy as. in the judgment of the  members of Parliament, is detrimental to the prosperity and welfare of  tho country. If this Government were  to enunciate and set forth such a  policy as, in my humblo opinion,  would be detrimental to the prosperity and welfare of the Dominion of  Canada. I'should feel bound to support the "present amendment. But  what are the facts of the case? They  are that the policy, so far as it has  been enunciated in the. spoken word  and the published statements of the  first minister of the Crown, is such  as commends itself most heartily, to  my mind and judgment. I believe  that policy, as clearly as I can understand his words, in the highest in-;,  terest of the country form a commercial, social and national standpoint.    Why    then    should   I    vote  against, such a policy? I endorse the  spirit and also the substance of his  published language and of his spoken  word, because those words have'been  uniform. 1 have' heard him in the  province by the Pacific; I have heard  him in this city; I have, read what ho  has said on tlie prairies: I have read  ���������what he bus said east of the Ottawa  river, and in every place and in every  province lie has fold the same story.  There has been the enunciation of  the .same -fiscal policy, namely,  proper proteetion?for all Canadian industries! 1 would that 1 could em-'  phasize that little word "all,'' because,' Sir, it includes'the labour of  the'entire Canadian population. The  policy looks towards the protection  not only of any one class,or of anyore  the people, or of any one section of the  the .community, but, it is a poiicy which  aiiiis to foster and promote the highest developmoiH and prosperity of  all our Canadian industries!, and our  Canadian industries are,, manifold.  They are not'restricted to the cities;  they cover the couury from ocean to  ocean, aiul, Sir, a fiscal policy that  seeks to protect and'preserve and encourage all legitimate Canadian industries is a policy such as 1 feel disposed to,endorse and support.  There is   another    thought in the  published    statements    and    spoken  words of tlie Prime Minister which  appeals to me very strongly. I know  that it has not been very seriously en.  , phasized in this debate, but 1 sei  in it possibilities' of great things in  tlie future. I refer to what 1 believ-j  to be his honest and, sincere and  gonuine purpose and intention to do  all within his power as First. Minister  'of the Crown to unify the Canadian;  people. Sir, this it no time, even by  ; insinuation,' and much less by ridicule,,to throw any slur or cast any.  reflection upon such a high and noble  purpose. It may be said by some that  unification is impossible. I grant that  in some respects'that is true but in  other -respects unification is not only  possible, but in the interest of Canada it is absolutely necessary. Ti'ue it  is, that from ocean to ocean there are  varied interests, and in some respects  we cannot all be united. We may  never be'united in our religious convictions. There is no desire on the  part of any one, I hope, ,to have a  recognized state religion in this'country. We do not wish that; the country-  repudiates the thought.'The desire of  the people of. Canada is that every,  man shail have the right of- private  opinion and action with regard to  his own religious views and further,  that there should be ho official recognition by the State of any particular  body, class or creed, but,. that all  should stand on a common footing  before"the' law of' the land. There  cannot be* unity so far as a great  national religion is concerned. Nobody vvants it, nobody expocts it.  Neither can we be united politically: I suppose that goes wiihout  saying. But there is a sense in which  I believe the Prime Minister is looking towards- unity on a higher, or  national plane; that is to say, we can  be divided in opinions, but united in  aim. This may be old and oft-trodden  ground, but, Sir, we cannot traverse  it too often. There is in our country  great room for division of opinion on  great national questions, on great  political.principles, and so.long-as  tho division is along the line of principles 1 have absolutely nothing to  say against it. I welcome it. 1 believe  it is a healthful sign of public  thought and public sentiment. What  1 deplore is the existence in this  great country of anything which  would-even appear to divide province  against province, or class against  class, or ono section of the country  against another section. We may be  divided on great nta.iona-1 issues; wc  ���������should on these be divided'; but in  the name of our common country let  us divide on' lines of principle or  policy and not on lines of principle  or policy and not on lines of class,  ��������� lot on lines of religion, not on lines  ���������if race, not even on lines of language  vVe cannot afford it. Our country Is  -oo big and potential, the future ol".  this Dominion is lob vast in lis importance to allow anything of that  character to interfere with or retard  our true national prosperity.  There has been, in late years, ar'hi-  ing a class consciousness as we are  fill aware. There is room tor a class  "onsciousness, and there will issue  from it certain results to the advantages of the class, its progress and  development,   locally,'  and   socially.  To-night sure!

I, sit. in this  Chamber by the grace of the votes of  .my people, a fruit, grower, here to  my right is a lawyer, to iny left,a  manufacturer, behind me are two  doctors, across the aisle is a grain-  grower from Saskatchewan, and  another from Manitoba; but wc are  not here as lawyers, or gfaih-gro wet's  or doctors, or manufacturers: we are  here as Canadian citizens.  During the    last    few   months we  have had    two    by-elections in    the  province from  which   .1    come.  Considerable has been said in this House  about by-elections, and 1 want to tell  'you  something  about  these,  two  by-  elections in my province. One was in  (he city of Victoria, the other in the  'conslituency of'Yale and, Sir, it is a  mailer of history, a    matter of fact,  that in neither of these    cases    was  there an Opposition candidate in lhe  field  representing    the    official Op-  posit ion.in this House.  In the city of  Victoria there was a combination of  opponents   cf   the   Government,   but  without an issue,    without the semblance  of  a     platform���������they     were  simply against the government. What  did we find in Yale, where the second ,  by-election  took "place?  We had  the'  ' government   candidate   standing   on  _he-Governm'ent  record  and   on   the  Government  policy.  Did  my   Liberal i  friends put, a candidate in "the field  in Yale? No, they did not, although  at one time,.I am told, they intended-  to.  What was done?  It was decided  by the    Liberals- of Yale in    written  :resolution that in view of the situation which obtained; all the    opponents of the Government should unite  in    order to    "defeat    the    common  enemy" and therefore they endorsed  the Opposition "candidate.  ' That was the situation'in Yale-���������no  policy,  no  principle,   simply  a  combination of some Liberals,  some returned   soldiers,   some   farmers,   and  some extreme Labour    men who united   their, forces   in  support   of  one  man who, when he received their en-  dorsation, turned round and said:  "I  repudiate  the  whole  of you;   I. will  be an independent."  My-friends the  Agrarians,   through   their   representatives, have been, doing their utmost  to win to their political bosom farmers  from  my  province. That is- perfectly    legitimate. 1    presume   .that  courtship  is'always in order.  Up "to  the present the farmers in my constit  uency:���������and  I  have  the honour  to  represent one of the finest rural constituency in the Dominion of Canada j  ���������and the farmers of my province as  a, whole have not responded to their,  solicitations. They have stretched out  their hands  across  the- Rockies and  with a firm grasp hove said: "\V*3 are  brithers a", but first and last we are  Canadian  citizens  and   we  shall   not  enter into political alliance with the  agrarian movement of the Prairies.'.'  - Now, I stand    here    to-night as a  farmer, but   not as a.   class    man. I  believe,that it. is    the    right and the.  privilege of the members of any class  [to unite for (be advancement of their,  town  local    interests, of- their    own;,;  business or    profession;     but in',the,',  higher sphere of     national    deliber-'  alien, Ictus'- meet as    Canadian citizens to promote the intere'sts' of ,allt  classes and ' conditions, of... people in''  the    country and of the,   nation a* a',  whole, irrespective 'of tho occupations:  which  we as  members may ivulivk'l-'  ually    pursue. I-    have    examined as.  closely    as 1    can    the    three    main,  reasons which could ^possibly be a deduced why a man should vote .against  the   Government of the day -and in'  favor of the amendment as proposed;  by the leader of the. Opposition, and  by way of brief review iiV reply-let iife  say   that this   Government  has  kept  its pre-election pledges.
