CAUOrS ISTlUOiVGTH OF CITY"  TO ISK CUT BY " P  R.  /' (From   Vancouver   Sun)  Victoria, Marh 22.���������Arc the cities  of Victoria and Vancouver to have  legislative representation? This is  ��������� the question which is agitating the  minds of the city members at tho  capital. With the Elections bill half  way through committee and tho  budget expected down within a. day  or two, the question of tho mode of  city representation is getting into  close range.  So far all the discussion between  ,thc rival systems of "P. Ft.'' and the  ward system have' been academic  with the arguments piling up in fa  vor of "P. R." as the fair and accurate system to reflect the minds o'  the electorate. In fact, the provincial Liberal party as well as the National Liberal party is on record- in  convention as in favor of the system.  But theories do not always tit into  facts. With the necessity of getting  down to cases some of the city members most in sympathy . with ihe  theories and aims of "P. R." have  discovered a danger which is causing some of them to do some hard  thinking before making a hard decision.  The situation in brief is this. The  legislature is composed of 47 members. Vancouver which has oae-  tl-ird of the' population of the ero-  vince is represented by six members:  the remaining two-thirds have '��������� 1.  representatives. Vancouver and Victoria between them���������the only multiple constituencies���������not half the population have only "ten representatives.  Some of the country constituencies  are quite small in numbers. One  cabinet minister represents .less than  5 00 votes. More than one member,  it is said, has less than 4 00 votes  behind him, while one if not more  has less than 300. But in caucus or  in the house the country member's  voice and vote is quite as potent as  that of the city member.  "The mountains against the coast"  is a well known battle cry at Vic-  toiia. In all governments at Victoria there has been a rivalry between the country and the city. It  takes shape in partiular against the  city of Vancouver. More than once  it is said, matters of province-wide  importance, such as the provincial  university, have been the subject of  divisions in which the feelings of the  country against the city have been  manifest. Without a solid or near-  solid representation from Vancouver standing against the oilier members, it is said that Vancouver has  little chance of getting its just measure of legislative favors.  Here is where the argument comes  in. With "P. R." in the two cities  and single member constituencies  elsewhere, it is feared Uml the cities  will fare ill. Take a situation for  instance like either of the last two  general elections in which the Conservatives swept the country in 1912  and the Liberals did the same in  191 0.  In the country constituencies by  virtue of. tho majority vote the  country would return almost a. solid  array of government supporters. In  the cities the representation would  be divided. That is the virtue of  proportional representation���������-its ability to reflect the popular vote. Vancouver in stead of having a solid five  or six behind whichever government  goes in, would have probably three  government members, two opposition  and one independent. Us fighting  strength in caucus would be cut in  two.  The ragument is used that which  MINISTER OH1 AGRICULTURE  FAVORS. TUBIdKCULIN TEST  Victoria,  March 20. ��������� Testimony  to tlic eflicicncy of the policy inaugurated by the    former    Conservative  government to safe-guard the interests of the dairymen and the public  by the prevention of tuberculoslsMn  the cattle herds of the Province was  given in^he House this week by lion  E. D. Barrow, Minister of Agriculture  when  he stated that the number of  re-actions   to   the  tuberculin   test  is-  rapidly approaching to    the    irreducible minimum. To P. J. A. Mackenzie-  Conservative member for Delta,  tho  Minister stated that the herds of the  Province are singularly free from the  disease, indicating that the system of  inspection  had proved  a  most, valuable  one.    Incidentally  he  admitted  that  the present government is  following out a practice for which  flu  Liberals were wont to roundly blame'  the foyneTr   administration,   namely  the permitting of the sale of carcass  es of animals ordered slaughtered by  the government   inspectors    because  of their ooing infected with tuberculosis.    There was a time    when    tin  Liberal critics, who sought any and  all   excuses   for   criticising' the   lap  government,  literally made the welkin ring with their denunciations o'  the  failure of the  then   -epartmem  to adequately safe-guard the    publh  health through the prohibition of the  sale of such infected meat.    But the  practice is still being permitted    bj  the present Department, the Mir.isle;  admitted.  The question of the advisability or  otherwise of the tuberculin test was  one on which, formerly, considerable  difference of opinion existed. The  present Premier, when some years  ago" he was devoting his attention to  his farming ouerations in the Delta  riding, was one of its most bitter opponents. On one occasion bis refusal to allow his cattle to be inspected  resulted in their being quarantined  by the then Conservative Minister of  Agriculture. Today that same system of inspection is being carried out  with remarkable success and B. C.  caltle, the Minister staled, are in liii'  envious position of being almost free  from tuberculosis the while the herd?  of the Prairie provinces are seriously  affected because of the lack of a similar strict system' of inspection.  si'MA.s reskhvr; is  OPRX TO SO LI) IK US  Sumas Indian Reserve' has boon  purchased by the Soldier Settlement  ���������Board from the.department o'O.

" Announcement to this effect was  made last' night by Captain P. C.  Brown, local superintendent of the  Soldier 'Settlement Board, immediately after the departure of 13. E.

Mr.- Patterson' left for  Creston, there to arrange/.ior.thc allotment of the settlement'-area cleared under provincial-'government .direction during the past year.'

'  EXPRESS  TRAINS  ON  THE VALLEY  BRANCH  The prospects of the B.  C. E. R.  operating  a   "limited"   train   service  over the Eraser Valley branch of the  system is being seriously considered  in several of the leading centre's of  the Valley, and it is possible that a  conference will  be requested  in th3  near  future between  representatives  'of the company'and delegates  from  the various settlements with a view  , to securing this improved service.  j     It  is proposed  that  the  company  . operate two express passenger traiti3  j daily over the system;  stops    being  i made only at points where an agent  j is stationed.  i '   Once the voltage on    the    Valley  , lirach has been raiscd.il is expected  that a better service, will bo available  both for freight and passenger traflic.  I      It. is put forward by those advocating  an   express   service,   that  a   ro-  j duolion in  the   running time of ce-r-  jtain trains would mean greater trav-  ' el between the country and the coast  | cities and therefore would  be of advantage in a  business way.

Gossip has it that at .more than one  recent ������.... .cus session some of the up-  country members have not been backward in rapping their' party heads  for their failure to be better prepared, for..the session. The Legislative  bill of fare is comparatively slim-one  this year and 'yet it is further be-;  hind than for years past. Any hop?.1  that the session will end at the end  of the month has disappeared_ despit-a  the fact that members were confidently counting upon the end of the  two months period seeing them, on  their way to their homes. The budget  promised ten days" ago is. yet to make'  its appearance. The latest prophecy is that it will be down next  Wednesday. Night sessions will then  be inaugurated. The financial proposals of the government are sure to  be keenly debated. ��������� The opposition  has been securing a mass of information bearing upon the administration's operations and.is .well primed  to give the proposals critical investigation. Chief interest in the budget  centres in what the government will  propose in the way of granting further sources'of revenue to the municipalities for' which the latter have  been urgently pressing. Predictions  at present are that the hand-out, if  any, will be. a slim one, the government proposing to retain every possible source of revenue for    itself    to  meet the ever-increasing outlays on  the growing machinery of government il is building up to the benefit  of a host of officer holders, but at  the expense of the already hoavil;>  tax-burdened community. Hardly  an act comes down now that provision is not being made therein foi  more officials ami more expenditure::  on account of administrative service,  a service already attained to proportions never before reached in the  history of the Province.

Bowser, K. C.

The insinuation  by the Attorney-General was promptly replied to  j by   Mr.   Bowser   whose   explanation  !was, on the face, so palpably sincere  land reasonable thai the Premier was  | moved lo rush lo the defense of his  i Minister  In    a     lengthy     harrangue  ! which, while if breathed resentment  ! bristled with insinuations and inuen-  ' da   and   covert   charges   against   the  ' opposition leader, left a bad lasts hi  , mouths of members.    The Premier's  'efforts convinced no one, not'even the  most   rabid   of   his   parly   followers,  and comment in the Legislative^ corridors made il fcloar that in  the opinion of members the Attorney-General's move in introducing the cable  and seeking totmake political capital  thereof was ill-advised and rclieoled  no  credit upon himself or   the  government,  and   certainly  cast no   discredit  upon  the opposition     leader.  Summed   up.   il  proved   Lo   be   just  another of  those peevish     outbursts  for which the Attorney-General is becoming noted, an ebulition of childish petTulence he displays when opposition thrusts gel home.  Mr.   bowser's  statement     to     th  House on Monday to    the    AtLorney-  Gcneral's attack    was    temperate in  tone, convincing inils loglc-and withal simply  made.    Unlike the  Minister, Mr. Bowser's manner was frank  and  open-    But there was sting    to  his statement when he challenged the  Attorney-General Lo light out the issue at ihe coming elections in  Vancouver,  the  city ho has   rcpresento'i  for seventeen years, in which period,  he asserted, he had never taken part  in a crooked election and  where no  different opinion had evil' been held  of him uulil the Attorney-General, in  l'jl('), had insinuated that his money  was   behind   the Seattle  pluggers.   It  was tiniIo Iruc, Mr. bowser said, that  k    it  was  possible to  read  into  a  peril    Cecily  innocent message an evil suggestion,   if  such suited   the  political  purposes of members of the government   hut.   h:   concluded.   "I   dir.like  to wine out  the frenzied  joy     which  Ihe honorable members    showed    at  the end ef     the    Attorney-Generals  :-:pi-.'.'ch. a.iid   which   looked as   it   thu  whole  matter had     been     rob ;ar:;ed i  previously  in  their caucus,     but.    if  jji i ilr.'.y  knew  the Attorney-General    as  r-lweil   as   I   do   I  think   the  next  Limo  ||i they  had     better    stage    something  I;  more conclusive, and have some olh-  lilnr member of the cabinet-chosen  to  do the work who will, at least, read  the cable in  its entirely."  Mr. Bowser's motion that his slal-?-  tnent be made pari of the records oi  L'lic House moved the Premier to of-  i for an amendment designed to give  ihini opportunity Lo come to the rescue of his discomfited minister, an  amendment calling for the tabling oi  all ���������(���������allies' passing between tho late  government and the then Agent-General in connection with the overseas'  count. Here was another opportunity  for ..Liberal-members to sit back in  anticipation of further development?.  On Tuesday Premier Oliver spoke to  his amendment. Summarized his  remarks were. a re-hash of all the  hard things' the Liberals have been  wont'to say about the opposition  leader couched ��������� in the characteristic  bull-dozing manner of the government's head who. however, was care-  'ful to say lie was making no charges.  He pointed to the fact that suihi  .'.���������abi������s which, he said, had been exchanged at that time because the  ^���������able company's accounts ��������� showed  Lhey had been paid for,' were not a-  vailable, a sinister circumstance, he  opined. He admitted the opposition  leader's explanation" might be all  right, he was not prepared to say it  wasn't, but it looked queer to him.  Cn tact the Premier spent, an hour  telling the House that he had his  doubts, . He did. exactly what Mr.  Bowser suggested would be done  by anyone, especially a hide-bound  Liberal, who desired to do so, that  is read into any meaning it suited  his political purpose to do. But the  PremierV statement was not without'  its interesting features. <Fo-.' inslaiic.p  in regard to Mr. Bowser's reference  to the plugging scandal and to the  fact thai the former Attorhcy-Gen-  oi al (M. A." Macdonald) had had to  leave the government, the Premier  naively retorted thai that, gentleman  had been at fault, only in that he had  accepted campaign funds from the G.  N. It. personally', "rather than  through an intermediary".In view of  I ho fact that Mr. Macdouald has persistently been endeavoring' to convince a skeptical public that that  donation was not from the O.-N. H.  at all but from Dr. Mackenzie, a  parsonal friend, the Premier's version was a frank admission to say the  'east. The Premier also foil, called  upon lo apologize for Ihe demeanor  of his Attorney-General who, he said  was prone to speak in heat..  The Premier's amendment was ao-  copled by the House-the .opposition  supporting it. Willi its passing closed  an incident which, while it entertained the galleries for two days, delayed  the more serious business of the Legislature, the while failing to create  that sensation which its author.-the  Attorney-General, intended it should.

It is.the provision whercunder, if tho original applications for registration arc not o-  ivailablo  before   the  returning  officer  at the count of, the absentee ballols,  .ilie  provisions   of  the  act  requiring  ! comparison   bftwoen' the., affidavit  ol  i the voter  as  s.gned  on   the  back  of  Urn envelope ccntaining !.h? abr.eire?.  a. comparison  designed     to    prevent  personation, need not. be made.     This  calm wiping out of the very essence  of the whole system of safe-guarding  the absentee voting aroused a storm  of protest from the opposition members   who   declared   it  was  the   real  ������������������joker" in the bill. The- Premier admitted he did not like it himself and  promised that before    the    bill ��������� got  through   its   committee   stage   there  would   be an  amendment to  strengthen  ihe section.  The opposition scored a point, too,  when their assault upon the growing  practice of Ministers of 1 nongovernment taking to themselves 'powers  rightfully pertaining to the Legislature or, at any rare, t othe I ieutsn-  ani-Governor-in-council, forced the  Minister of Mines to make an important change in the bill to amend  the  ��������� Mineral Act    whereunder    provision  ��������� was made for placing reserves upon  ! iron' ore   lands  up_on   advice' of   the  Minister, ,to whom "authority was given to lift such reserves when he saw  I fit.

A move is now on fool in the legislature to have one of the city mem  bers bring in a private member  ill  for daylight saving and let the House  debate and vote on it in a "free for  all" contest.    Just what    form    the  in Mission City "and that the utmost ' nrop0sed bill will take is not decided,  difficulty is found in gelling even a ln al] probability the bill will give  limited supply.

Mr. Bowser urged  that \vli3ii a reserve was lifted due  public notice should be given and he  was heartily supported by Mr. Hanes,  Noith Vancouver. As a result of the  criticism directed against the measure; an amendment" was brought in  by the Minister providing for tho  plibile notification thus eliminating  any possibility, of secret negotiations  between the Minister or government  and any individual or syndicate who  might desire to secure control of such  ore lands.

On the strengt h of Mr. Rogers' state  inents, consumers are demanding  sugar from the retailers, and when  they can't got it relations are apt to  become strained."  some real business anc^ progress has  been made with legislation so far  brought down. Chief attention has  been paid to the new Elections Act  in connection with which it early became apparent that the opposition  criticism has produced marked- effect.
