Victoria, March 13.���������The new Elections bill has proved the chief point  of interest in the week's debates    in  the Mouse and especially noteworthy  were the opposition' leader's assaults  upon the,.measure,    one    which,    he  pointed out, shows    some    startling  departures  from the bill which the  late Mr. Brewster   had   drafted   ancl  circulated among the members.of the  House   for   their   consideration.   Especially has the provision for granting the franchises to Japanese    war  veterans  proved   a  contentious   one.  Judging from the expressions of op-  . inion  which have reached  members,  th'3 contemplated move by the govern  men! to permit what,    Mr.    Bowser  claimed, would be the entry of the  thin edge of the wedge to a demand  for wider privileges for the Orientals  Is by no means a popular one.      On  this  point  the  opposition  came  out  flat-footed.    Mr. Bowser was willing  to, concede the sentimental phase of  the matter, but in view of the strong  public opinion on the whole question  of the Oriental in B.C., he urged that  the provision  be eliminated.    It appears that the proposal was adopted  by the government upon the    recommendation of the G. W. V. A. Association of' Vancouver.    If that is the  case  there  i*s  anything but  unanimity among the returned men themselves for other   Associations    throughout the Province have wired and writ  ten to members    opposing    it    most  strongly.    Why, the opposition leader asked, .should the Japs who    had  served  overseas get    the     franchise  when   native  born  Indians  also   did  valiant service there be refused,    or  Hindus, British subjects, be discriminated against?     He bluntly charged  that the real  intent was to  provide  the Attorney-General will a battalion  of little brown men who, at the dictation of their consul, would vote as  they were told, men who had no interest in British'institutions and who  he declared,, he did not wish to see  mixing in the elections with the women of the country.  The act, Mr. Bowser assorted, was  wide-open so far as possibilities allowed for election irregularities. The  .much vaunted precautions in safeguarding the count of tho absentee  votes by a comparison of the signatures attached to the affidavit upon  the envelopes into which, those ballots would l)e placed, with the signatures on the voter's original application for registration, were completely  nullified by the provision that such  original applications, were not available the absentee ballots could be  counted anyway. It was hard to conclude, he said, that such an elaborate  machinery for safe-guarding the vote  would lie provided only to be completely nullified, unless on the theory  that such a loop-hole had been deliberately provided. He objected to  the elimination of the education tcst  in the old act thus permitting ignorant foreigners and illiterate persons  the vote. It was apparently the effort of the government to summon to  its aid the Orientals and the riff-raff  of the country at the next general elections, he suggested. The sections  designed to prohibit donations of cam  paign funds to political parties for  corrupt purposes.was a mere eatnou-  tlago, astutely drafted, but meaningless. The provision for the appointment of deputy registrars in tho pay  of the government was, a-strong step  Mr. Bowser argued. He urged thai  either, the English practice be adopted, one under which all political par-  tics name . the registrars or, better  still, allow the soldiers' party to name  ' the man the understanding that men  who had seen actual service and ha.l  been disabled should be given the  work.'  The debate on tl'i'e" Eelectioiis in!;  was productive  of much interesting'  cross-firing.       Mr. Bowser's claimed  that the old act was a greater safeguard sgiinst election    irregularities  that the present bill brought the reply  that past  history  did  not show  it.    He retorted that the records of  the past political history of the Province  showed  that  the   only  election  crookedness was that at the V mcouver  bye-election   in   1916   when   the  senior member for Vancouver (M. A.  Macdonald)   )   was  elected  after     a  carnival  of  "plugging".    References  to campaign funds naturally brought  references from the government side  to the  $500,000  P.  G. E.  donations  Mr.   Bowser  challenged  the  government to appoint a proper Commission  to go into the question. He declared  the 101.7 investigation    by a    House  committee, before which ho refused  to testify, had been a mere "kangaroo court'' in which he would have  been given scant consideration by tht  government majority, but before e  proper commission, he could promis--  the government, he would be able tf  tell some tilings of interest to hi?"

Naturally they were both anxious to know how the vote overseas  was going. He had been importuned  by tho press, by the Libsrals u-d  others' to resign office but he had  considered it was proper i'or him fo  hold,on until the results of the overseas,' votes were complete. The count  of-that vote in London commenced in  October by which time the result of  the count of the soldier vote in Canada outside of B.C. had been completed giving him    a majority    over  ' Donelly, in Vancouver, of -16. He had  cabled Sir Richard several times to  keen him posted on the count in  London. At that time .air Richard  was very ill, how ill .was not appreciated here. In fact he'was almost  blind and the supervision of the Lon  don count was entrusted to a London  barrister and it proceeded before representatives of both political parties  as  well  as those of  the  Prohibition  . and Liquor interests. On October 2?,  Mr. Bowser cabled to .Sir Richard as  follows: "Am now elected 4 6 ahead  of Donelly. Cable how I am running  there, also Ross."  It cannot bes aid that the Attorney  General displayed any ��������� considerable  logic in his insinuations. In one-  breath he referred to the alleged enmity between the opposition leadei  and Sir Richard McBride who, he as  sorted, had been driven out of the  Conservative government by Mr Bowser, and, in the next, ho was seek in*.;  to make the House believe that Si:  Richard, in the face of that ill-treatment, was willing to assist Mr. Bowser by manipulating the overseas  vote. It also developed that the cabl,  sent by Mr. Bowser -referring fo the  180 votes he needed to elect him,  was found on the open files in the  Agent-General's office. It could, hardly be expected that a man as astute a  politician as was the late Sir Richard  would have left any incriminating  cables lying around loose had no  seen in it. the hidden meaning the Attorney-General professed to have discovered. Mr. Bowser, on Priday afternoon, explained lo the Mouse thai  he could hardly be expected, off-hand,  to deal with a matter of nearly four  years ago. He stated he* would, al'tc"  sccuring other cables that passed be  tween himself and Si,. Richard, mak'  a further statement to the House, a:  was his right. This statement wil  be made on Monday.  Comment among Liberal member  cf the House indicated clearly tha  as a political sensation the Attorney  General's allegations, based upon fli  cable, were very far-fetched. As <  campaign ,.oor-bach on tho eve of ai  election it might have served a purpose, but in the cold light of logic  the bomb-shell had proved little better than a scjuib.  for tliens. was then no power in the  act lo permit tho government by order in council to approve of Cue sain  Mr. Bowser showed where during the  war and at a time when shipping fr. t  cilifies were totally lacking and the  loggers could net sell their logs, per-,  mission had been granted.

I.  Victoria, March 1'A.���������If the amused manner in which he heard the objections voiced by Mr'. Bowser to Iiis  action in ruling the ladies composing |  the Advisory Board of Women's In-'  stitutes out of existence upon a legal  opinion written by himself, was to be  taken as evidence of his view of flic  matter, then Premier O'liver is hugely  enjoying the discomfiture of the ladies. It has developsd during lhe  week that the Premier, following a  me eting here last October of the Advisory Board, delivered himself of  the opinion that the ladies had not  been legally appointed in that while  the district Institutes had mads their  selections, such had never been approved of by the Minister. He told  .also' that the claim by the ladies  that they were entitled to select their  own secretary was also quite wrong.  When Mr. Bowser was complaining  that the ladies had come to that October, meeting quite convinced that  they were there properly elected, that  the meeting was held and- the Premier and Minister of Agriculture had  addressed it and at its conclusion  Hon. Mr. Oliver had joined hands  with them in singing Auld Lang Sync  They left for their homes and then  came the Premier's opinion that they  had never legally sat and that their  trouble and work was for naught. He  resented the Premier treating the  matter as a joke declaring it was serious so far as the ladies were concerned, that hey had been doing u  most valuable work and the .treatment meted out to them had been  nothing else than a gratuitous insult. The Premier could have easily  legalized thhe Board by order-in-  council had he so desired, said Mr.  Bowser who declared the whole move  had been dictated by the desire to  support Mrs. McLachlan. the government's appc>itce to the office of secretary with whom members of the  board had difficulties, an appointment dictated by purely political con  ������������������icleraticns, she having been secretary  if the Saanfch Liberal Association.

OUR VICTORIA LETTER  Victoria, 7/!arch 13.���������In' an 'effort  to stage a "come bade!' in reply to  tlie opposition assaults -which, during  the past week, have centred upon  him and have provided the House  with an excellent -example of the gentle art of getting under the hide or  the administration, Hon. J. W. deB  Farris, on Friday exploded what was  'ntended to prove a veritable'-political bombshell and overwhelm a inin-  irity which has up to date this session more that held its own with the  I "brute majority". All week the At-  ' torney-Genoral has given plain, indication that the opposition criticism  of the administration of the Game dc-  ���������partmont, under tlie direction of his  ! dentist honchmen', Dr. Baker, and  Mr. Bowser's tolling assault upon the*  weaknesses of the new election act,  which he tore to shreds and in the  framing of which he saw flic hand of  the "wicked partner in tho administration" had got, home. The minister displayed an amount of peevishness and acrimony that, however undignified it was, was none tho less  relished by_the opposition as proving  the ���������effectiveness of their attacks.  It was when he was attempting, to  answer Mr.  Bowser on the elections  bill, one which, the opposition leader  claimed, left the door wide open for  the grossest    election    irregularities,  that the Attorney-General sprung his  sensation.    Declaring that Mr.  Bowser was well qualified fo speak of irregularities and crookedness, and accusing him of "vile insinuations"aud  "despicable tactics", Hon. Mr. Farris  produced a copy of an alleged cable  which, he averred, had been sent by  Mr. Bowser    immediately    following  the general elections on    Sept.     U.  1!).16,  to Sir Richard  McBride,  tiion  agent-general for the Province at Lon  don.    The cable as quoted by the Attorney-General  read:   "Soldier votes  may give us twelve to fifteen scats. 1  want .1.80.    Slump was general every  .where.    Prohibition carried by seven  thousand." Into this cable the Attorney-General, whose virtuous indignation of the    opposition's    propcnslfv  for insinuations    was    declaiinsd    in  theatrical manner, proceeded to read  HOW YOU CAN TELL  GENUINE ASPIRIN  Only Tablets with "Bayer Cross'  are Aspirin���������No others!  the insinuation that.

He labored upon the phrase "I want  180". He saw in it- the appeal-of a  .desperate political leader whose party -had been overwhelmed by' the  righteous indignation of an outraged ���������  electorate and-who was willing to resort to any means to secure his return, even to tlie extent of manipulating the overseas vote to make up  the deficiency in his civilian vote ai  home.  If cannot be said that the Attorney  General's insinuation, he was careful  not to make any direct charge, created any particular excitement o,. even  assumed the proportions of, tlie nsar  sensation  it was  intended  to   be.  It developed (hat lh8 above cable,,  incorrectly, quoted by Hon.

But,   it  went id  appear, the latter saw his opportunity   to   inalce   good   his   oft-repeated  ihreat that he would  nrjet his political   traducer,  the opposition   leader,  en the floor of five House and flic re  confound him.

The Attorney-General's eulogy of the  Doctor and of his public spirit in giv  Jig his services free, appeared to be  somewhat over-done. Of his peevish  .less there was no doubt.  Dignity  was  thrown  to the winds  when, on  Wednesday, tho Attorney-  Goncral declared that Mr. Poley's actions in the public accounts committee had been "so small, so miserably  mean" that he, as head of the game  administration  would see to it that  that member's application for a permit to tap quail, one which had been  refused to the game board' and to se-  curo which Mr. Pooley, who is a keen  enthusiast In game conservation, had  appealed to the Minister.

Now  because he dared to give Dr. Baker's  accounts the once over, Mr. Pooley  will be disciplined by the Attorney-  General.  It developed in the public accounts  committee, that     tho     Comptroller-  General had occasion to complain of  tho nninncr in which  Dr.  Baker put  in his accounts ancl that the Deputy-  Attorney-General   had   replied     that  the doctor waa not to be considered  as a mere civil servant and that the  charges complained    of    should    b->  promptly paid..    Mr. Bowser suggested   he  had  known   the'doctor  for  a  long time and was convinced his accounts require close scrutiny, a statement that greatly incensed    the   Attorney-General  who  retorted  that of  who   he   believed   Mr.   Bowser's   accounts could the better be investigated.
