Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,     MARCH .30,   J 923  The question that is agitating the  minds of a great many people in  this province at the present time is  as to whether Premier Oliver will  have a provincial election during the  present year, or will lie wait until  1924 when the redistribution bill  hay been passed and the ridings  changed so that some of them will  Ins more representative of the voting  ability of his'party.  Merc is one way to Bize up tho situation. It is claimed that both parties  arc) in ' favour of more equitable  freight rates. Oliver and his party  ai-e making the boast that Bowser  "has pledged his support".    This io-  ��������� sue of- freight rates is somewhat  clouded. It is the-old cry under a  new name���������although It must be said  that the name now does not include  ������.s much as' did the, cry pf "better  term's"; which Premier Oliver says  the former government won two o-  lections on. Taking a part of the  former victorious, appeal to the  people, and enlarging on it only,  looks good rto the premier at the  present time, and���������is it a known fact  to Premier Oliver that the government at Ottawa, when he gives, the  high sign,- will send word to B. C,  post haste' so that articles with large  headlines can appear in( .the Liberal  press something .like ,the, following:  "Premier Oliver Has Won Freight  Rate Fight".'' Or in other words has  ' Fremier Oliver an assurance from  the Liberal government at Ottawa  that in'the.matter of freight rates his  rcciuest will' be granted and the news  made public should he make an appeal to the country and, go back to  Victoria victorious? We; believe  that is the situation as it stands today in  this matter.'  Then again., Next year, the provincial party ."with'its suffi'oJout campaign fund'.for, successful organization, will be a real fighting quantity.  At the present time it is* in its infancy and'the. people, of B. C. have  not boon' 'made thoroughly, familiar  with the'policy of the .new party. .It  is in its embryo state: ���������      Next year  are pulling down from, $7,000 to  ���������UO 00 a year'to look wise in ministerial seats and who feel that, such  an attempt would be more than a  sporting chance. ��������� Those who raised  tlioir salaries a couple of yeais. ago  are not overly anxious to take this  method of getting rid of it It is altogether likely'that Honorable John  will be allowed to, make' his railway talks without upsetting  treasury   chest.���������Grand   Forks  ello. "   P1UNTJNG THIS   TRUTH  the  G Ba  it is not pleasant and profitable  always to tell the truth in the columns of a newspaper. Men who  have tried this heretofore have al:  ways come to grief. Only a few day*,  ago the editor of a paper in Indiana  grew-tired of being called u liar and  announced that he would toll the  truth in future; and the next issue  of the paper contained the following  items':  "John Boniu, the laziest merchant in town, made a trip to Belleville, yesterday.  "John Coyle, our grooorymnn, is  doing a noor busings. l'Iis store is  dirtv and dusty.    Why should he do  muoh?"   '  "Dave Sonkoy died at his home in  thip- place. The doctors gave it out  as heart failure. Whiskv killed him.".  "Married���������M'ss Sylvan Rhodes  and James Conlin. last Saturday, at.  the parsonage. The'bride is a very  ordinary ,town girl who doesn't know  any more ab'out cooking than a jack  rabbit, and never helped her mother  three days in her life. She is not a  beauty by any means', and has a gait  like a duck.- The groom is an up-  to-date loafer. He has been living  off the old folks all his life, and is  not worth shucks.'   It v.ill be.' a hard  life."  "Our congressman, a very orrtm-  arv man, and who was elected by  accident, was here . yesterday. He  has very few .friends here, now. He  promised! some of the''voters in this  township; a piec<?. of pie in the event,  of bis election, bufhad forgotten all  about it when .the time came to hand  over  the: little  offices.���������Ex.  CANADIAN NATIONAL KYS.  WILL OPERATIC NEW TYPE,  OAR THROUGH KOCKIES  however -.when ��������� .the'' party leaders  have placed their case ' before the  various parts .of the . province of  B. C. the danger to the . Liberal government would' be very  much greater as-it is' ��������� generally conceded that-the-'flew provincial party  is really more" tiberal' than Conservative. Of course many .of the'prominent moil- in the party are Conservatives, but"'then that would have to  be put in',.order to secure good leadership.  And if.-sufficient smiles, accompanied by.!a little applause together  with his own' self assurance that the  public is "with him' the Premier will  most probably announce he is going  to the people, on his return from his  tour of the province. Even after his  annoucement to this effect, he may  give Ottawa the high sign, believing  that it will-;,'make his battle cry surer  and safer, j It's all in the political  game and casts no reflections on the  aged premier's idea.of how to keep  in pow������r.    ''  CANADA A . PARADISE  PROVINCIAL ELECTION  A provincial flection is said to be  one of this gear's'possibilities.... The.  other day Premier John Oliver addressed a m-feting, in Vancouver.  Announcements of the meeting contained sucli^ significant "phrases as  'The people%t British Columbia vs.  C.P.R.," "A ������igh\ to the finish,"  etc., and theJ premier, is , authority  lor the statement that he ia 'planning  to tour the province so that he may  carry "the great message" to all and  sundry. #The Vancouver Sun states  that there is a very strong and influential >ing' of. the Liberal party  urging an early'appeal to the people.  They feel that' Conservatives are  split and: the ^Progressives' not sufficiently organized, and that the premier, plumed jwit'h his alleged feats  in the railway'vfight at Ottawa would  make a big hit. if he appealed to the  people for a farther mandate to continue the railway . fight. But it  would appear to be non-member Liberals who are doing ' most of this  plotting.' , Those who have a cinch  on another 2 years at $2,000 per are  The Right Hon.. S. V. Srinavasa  Sastri. who recently returned to .India after visiting the. various Dominions in connection with the question  of Indian immigration, paid a .spe:  ci'al tribute to Canada for the, Brit-,  ish'immgrant. ���������   '  "Canada," he said, "Is a beautiful  country���������a Paradise. ������������������ I traveled  through it, and everywhere I went  I was delighted with all'I saw.-More  dver, I was surprised at the high  rate of wago3 paid, even for unskilled labor, and I am indeed astonished, that the people of Britain do not  go there in far larger number's,- in-"  stead of remaining* in their - own  country, where life is" so great a  struggle for many of them. It seems  to me that there is-"no comparison  between living ,}n '' England and in'  that Paradise, where there .is also so  much mbre work to'be done-thun in  the Old Couatry. -       ,*       ...  v������%t  "I was." went on Mr^ Sastri;,-.- par*  ticularly Impressed.jwltli/tb.'e.' kindliness of the^eoplo^eve'ry^vheire^fand  with the evidences"'of 'their.:.prosperity.

Discussine immigration problems' as he saw them,'  Mr. Sastri said he could well appreciate the idea that only the best types  of immigrants were needed," but he  submitted that with so bountiful a  country and with the excellent conditions that exist everywhere ' here  was.room for a widening of -the pror  cess of selection. ���������";'  ��������� "Tt is' reasonable to .suppose," ,he  said, "that the authorities desire the  best citizens that it is possible to  obtain. That is a wise policy. But.  on the other hand. the: best clafs of  people may already be doing well  where they are, and are-consequent:  ly not desirous of moving. So that,  to my mind, there \s an opportunity  for the acceptance of those of a lower grade on the ground that the next  generation will be equal to th? fin,  e3t of the present. Such a -develop-  mont would. Ibelicve.be tho-first  result of life in the ideal conditions  that exist in Canada today in every  respect. The climate, tlie goodness  of the food, the clearness and bracing qualities of the air, and the absence of' overcrowding, all suggest  that Canada will build up magnificent cities."���������Calcutta Statesman.  Canada has Rome of ' the most  magnificent mountain scenery, in  the world, as anyone,who travelled  through the Northern Canadian  Rockies knows. 'The, scenery, is , so.  varied, so full ,of surprises', that if  the traveller gives his constant attention, to. one,side of the .car he- is  almost certain to be missing something very wonderful - on the other  .side.  For years transcontinental railways in. America have, tried out various types of observation cars  through the.mountains, the objective  being to give their patrons the best  possible views of the scenery. Some  of them havo been simply open platform cars; with no protection from  the'.sun or inclement weather.  Car builders have boen vying with  one another in' the construction ot  these cars to provido the finest observation facilities, along with the'  maximum of comfort. At last tho  Canadian National Railway Shops at  Leuside, Toronto, have turned out a  car which has all the requisites, and  Will be placed in .operation on Trains  1'and 2 (Continental Limited) bo-  tween Jasper and Kftmloops during  period May 15th to September 30th  this year.  This car might almost lie described as a sun-room on wheels, in view  of tho large percentage of glass used  in its construction. It is regulation  slzo, with a cloaed-in soction 4 4 feet  i long and a spacious open coinpart-  Iment at each end' where passengers  may enjoy the open air. The interior of-the car has sixteen largo windows on each side running from the  seat arm rests to the ceiling. These  windows are 4 ft. 5 in. high by 28 in.  wide, having two panes of glass 2 4  in; by 24- in. one above the other.  There are also two of these windows  at each end of the car, one at each  sido of the door leading out on to the  platform.  Tlie seats are arranged transversely on each side of a center  aisle, as in an ordinary car, there  being sixteen double seats on each  side providing seating capacity for  sixty-four passengers. The platforms  provide capacity for thirty-six additional persons. The entire car side  framing is of steel, with the interior  finished in British-,- Columbia cedar,  stained, mahogany. The interior is  equipped' with the. most up-to-date  ventilators; electric light and shades.  ' 'One of'these new, cars was exhibited-at Toronto Exhibition last year  for" the first time, and 150,000  people inspected the car during the  fair. It was very favorably commented,; upon.,The car in many ways is an  innovation, and- marks another advance move by our National Lines.  These cars are to be used on the  Mountain Division of the Canadian  National' Railways, and will enable  travellers'to view the majestic scenery on both sides' of the car . with  tlie" utmost ease and comfort.

D. Me-.  Rae, by .Mr. W.- J. Bowser, K. C.;  leader of the Conservative opposition  in: addressing.a . meeting of Liberal-  Conservatives at'-. Oak Bay Friday  liight.  \-/. He pointed out that under present  abnormal conditions when.people are  discontented arid business is dull,  th'e'.'advent of a new party pledged to  lead the' people out of the political  wilderness is bound to secure adherents. But he cited the experince-of  'Ontario, Manitoba and indeed the  i'presont:- federal administration at Ottawa, as examples, of the evils of  ���������group government.  .Mr: Bowser delved, into political  history;'in1-this province to show that  prior to 1903 when tho party political lines/were closely drawn by  the late Sir Pvichard McBride there  ''was no;continuity in government, no  definite 'policy, no programme which  could be carried out to the advantage  of the province. There was no cohesion,' no tradition behind the then  paties. ���������he said.   ' ���������'  "I .would rather see Mr. Oliver.  With all his imperfections as an administrator, returned to power, than  that a system,of groups should be re-  urned. a system Which can not carry  out a responsible programme," declared Mr. Bowser, who held that the  present party system was the only  one. however imperfect, that would  produce  adequate  results.  Mr. Bowser predicted that the new  party under General McRae would  not last long. True, General McRae  was seeking to make the people believe he was willing to sacrifice a  great deal in their interests, but his  following were actually soreheads,  men with a grouch against the existing parties, and the general's' talk of  sacrifice would not go down with  those who knew him and his record.  General McRae'3 past career. Mr.  Bowser declared, indicated clearly,  that he had never made any effort  except in favor of General McRae.  oncernio  ��������� The cost' of printing depends, upon something  more tiian tlie .profit which the printer puts upon  it.   .

The Canadian government claimed  532,000,000 from the British government in settlement of war debts.

The shadows of evening had just  commenced to lengthen over the  shimmering waters of Indian Lake���������  a tiny inland boat, almost too small  to boast the name, surrounded by  rustling forests which, sheltered numerous- summer cottages and re-  Borts. Here and there a small, sturdy  pier, jutting out in tli8 water would  signify, a stopping-place for the tiny  craft that poked its nose in and out  of the dangerouB rocks, bringing the  reBorters to their respective abodes  to benefit by tho exhilarating air that  was ever-prevailing in tho community of the lake  Even now, with a series of choking snorts, the chugging visitor was  loundlug a miniature peninsula and,  by means of a squeaky whistle, announced ltB, Important arrival, to  tho guosts of Cedar Inn���������a Buiall  comfortable -hotel doscribed on the  summer calendar as "an Inn beautifully situated on Indian Lake for the  convenience of a selected few who  wish to Bpond a quiet rest among  beautiful surroundings."  With much creaking and groaning,-  the boat had effected, in landing and  a departure, leaving lu Its wake a solitary figure of a    young    man    who  stood on tho pier    watching its progress as it steamod homoward. With  u slight sigh  the young man watched  it disappear around the point of j  the  peninsula.    Turning,  and necur- >  ing a firmer grip on his suitcase, he  walked  in. the direction  of the Inn,  which stood boldly-in    relief to the  forest which    surrounded'    it.      H'e  was" mounting the steps of the building when he was met by a man boasting a sandy moustache and a pair of  blue. denlm>jeans.,' ,  .'"Hello," greeted, the,. young man  "could you tell me   where.-I    could  find the-.proprietor,. Mr.. Stroud?.  The other looked .the newcomer  over from head to foot.  "I    can,"    he    responded.      "I'm  Stroud."  "Well, I am    Jerry    Caruthers, I  suppose-you received my-wire?"  .The man's demeanor changed.  ''Oh yes, Mr. Carruthers, I have  the room all ready for you and will  take you up immediately- if that ' is  satisfactory."  Stroud, took the suitcase from the  young man's hand and preceded him  indoors. They walked up one flight of  stairs, half--way -down the long hall  and into a room, somewhat delapid-  ated but scrupulously clean. Here  Jerry's guide., departed, expressing  the ..wish that everything, would be  found satisfactory.  Jerry sat down ��������� on the solitary  chair and reflected. He was not very  pleasantly impressed with his reception and he did not anticipate a very  good time at this resort. In fact, he  was in the middle of a etrong attack  of bluos. He had a good reason to  be blue.. -How"different "it was here  to the hustle and, scurry of the editorial room of the Reading "Journal," which office he graced in the  guise of one of its most enterprising  reporters.  In that office he had lived a real  life-T-a life of .thrills and excitement  ���������until his constitution rebelled and  exiled him-to several days complete  change and rest.   Angus, the-editor,  had recommended Cedar Inn. to him,  but then Angus always did have a  .cheap sense of humor and this-.was,  rwithout- doubt,, another,   incident of  his .radiant (nature-rising to the surface. \Vell"anyway,' Jerry had. made  things hum while he was there, but,  most.- important, there  was  to be a  new position    opened in the    office  arid. Jerry-was sure of the'  promotion.--     Then  came  the  break-down  and; now. his chances ^for    promotion  were very slim, indeed.  '���������'"No.use crying.over-spilled milk,"  he mused; "I guess I'll go down on  the verandahvand see if I can't scare  :up- some excitement."  After refreshing himself by dashing some cold water on his face from  the pitcher that graced, the wash-  stand and drying, himself vigorously  with a coarse towel, he went down  the stairs and out on the large porch.  He was conscious of the fact, as he  Beated himself on one of the rustic  chairs, that he was not alone and  that a short distance away a young  lady was sitting intent on trying to  rod-'n newspaper in the dim light.  She had not even glanced up when  he had arrived and, from all appearances, had no intention of doing so.  He Btole a glance at her now and  (hen and he did not fail to notice  l.that she was pretty, in fact, extremely pretty. Her luxuriant chestnut  hair allowed- numerous tiny strands  to wave in the slight breeze, while  her> large, dark eyes twinkled in the  light of the setting sun and her wistful lips were slightly puckered as  she attempted to discern the small  news print.  Jerry immediately .approved of.the  other's presence���������not that it would  have made any difference if he  hadn't, but still she was pretty and  he would much rather have a pretty  girl than a homely one. He would  like to become acquainted with her,  but he was puzzled to know, how-to  start about it. He never claimed to  be a he-vampire, but- now ,he- almost  wished he were.  ., He noticed that the paper she-was  reading bore the ��������� flaring headlines  for which the "Journal" was noted  .and,also noticed that it was the latr  est edition���������probably brought there,  by the same boat on which he was a  passenger. He would like to be able,  to read the paper, but "no .reading"  was-one of the doctor's most string-,  ent-orders. News was..life-',to Jerry,  and: he certainly longed 'to- know,  what the- paper contained-.  As if his thoughts" had'been read-,  the occupant of the other chair looked up.

FOR THE NEW CAR  League Games are  Drawing to Final  (From Frntsr Yall������7 Becord)  It  is many  years since, the game  of basketball was played in Mission  City but there are    few    games    tc  which  our   -sporting    element    has  more quickly taken. The    games    of  late have been of the' championship  class  and  caused'    considerable     interest in the town.    Fans were treated last Wednesday    week  to   -some,  splendid games in the Skatirig Rink.  Mission  Senior "A"    team played  proba,bly their . bnst    game  'of   "the  season with Chilliwack "A" and incidentally  won     the    "A"     division  Championship  of the Valley by  de  feating tliem to the'   tune of-33-1.������,.  The  game  was    watched  by a .very  good crowd and ^surely    was    worth,  watching.    This victory gave Mission  "A" the right    to    play    Chilliwack  '-B" a home and home series to decide the-final of the    Fraser Valley  and the right to play the Vancouver.  Y.M.C.A. for'the'Mainland    Champ-1,  ionship.     Well,  Mission  travelled-to  Chilliwack last Friday to" play-   the  first game, and .went down to defeat  by 29 to 17.  The game was exceedingly fast  and what with a splendid combination game and their ��������� home floor.  Chilliwack certainly made ��������� things  hum The'same evening the- Mission  Cadets and Mission Intermediates  won both games with the corresponding teams of Chilliwack.  On Wednesday evening the final  game for. the championship of the  Fraser Valley League was played at  Mission City. The Rink was crowded with spectators and the game.was  1-eld at high tension throughout.  The score resulted in 22-15 in favour  of Mifs'on. but was not enough to  pqual- ChilUwack's 13 points by the  previous game. Thus, the ChilH-  .wack hoop-artists are the champions  of the Fraser Valley for 1923.  Changed His Mind  ���������    First  Tramp���������"Funny  thing  happened today."

The services were conducted by' Rev. fi. K. K.'Greene,  Vicar of All Saints.  The pallbearers were representatives of the municipal council and  those connected with municipal affairs: Messrs. ' Thompson, Wren,  Doyle,  Jackson,  Barr and Taulbut.  The deceased came to this province about fourteen years ago and  settled at Mt. Mary Ann. and capably filled the position of municipal  constable for many years.  Very little is known aboiit his relatives in England, except that h-a has  a sister here, but his own personal  matters were* not much of a subject  for conversation at any. t'me. He  came as a friend of the late Mr.  George Watson.  "Uncle Joe" as he was familiarly  called was one of those good fellows  who was everybody's friend, always  nolly and pleasant whenever you mot  him, and appeared to enjoy the free  life of western civilization. He was  around on Saturday as usual, apparently in the best of health, but medical advice is that for. sometime it  wna experted that he would become a  victim of hoart failure. He will be  missed in the community.  Going to buy some day-old chicks?  Know the record of their dams and  cockerel before buying.
