Over fifty ��������� years aye, just imagine,  those postmasters' remuneration was  tixed in a certain proportion to tho  revenue of the post ollico, largely the  niuount. ol* stamps sold therein.

They  point out that the postal service ls  half-starved and that in such a condition efficiency is impossible. The-  public, when it learns the facts, will  certainly endorse their appeal. Nine-  ten cents a day fifty^years ago would  be"about the same as how much today. Make a good guess that it would  be worth a dollar and then figure it  out. '  it..

Bates, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,  MAY   7,   .1920.  Clean  Up the Old  Burg���������  Teso are the happy halcyon days  for cleaning up the old town and  making her look spick and span for  the summer days, when visitors who  come along by car or train, look us  over and judge accordingly. The  local pride is put to a test in the  spring and resits in the back yards  and the fronts yards getting the once  or probably twice over to remove all  tho rubbish that may have accumulated during the rainy season. ' No  person can have much jojy in looking  out of- their back door and seeing  an accumulation of what does- not  add to the beauty of the place. And  might we go so far, as to say that  the person who permits that has but  little local pride.  Ashes are not as much of a menace  to the public health as some of the;  rubbish that  is seen  in some cases,  and 'there  is   this  certainty about it i  money but it is our firm conviction  that people arc happier now. than  when they did not. have so much to  spend. Let's keep the same policy in  vis.w now that we had when times  were hard���������spend less, a little, than  we earn.  SUES ELLIOTT FOR OXLV .'jJ.IO,00(H)  VICTORIA,  n. C, May-  was  issued   this  morning  in  -A writ  the  su  pra m-e court, of  British  Columbia  b,  ���������that aches can be removed or taken  away much easier.  It should-be a matter of local pride  for every property holder and tenant  to have the home yard and surroundings as neat as possible. It pays too.  It- keeps-awa-v disease and sickness  H may be some- work to do this but  some day.you willhear, if tlrj pjace  is neat and clean, some person as  they pass by, 'my that is a pretty little home'.".To hear that once even  should be worth many hours of labor  in cleaning up. Just try it this year  and see.  There are places right in this very  town that are anything put neat and  clean and as one passes these one is  struck'with the fact that the owner  ���������or occupier cannot be much of ! an  admirer of nature or the premises  would be cleaned up. Nature does a  iot for us in making our town look  pretty, why not assist nature in this  respect.  Boasting or  Boosting���������  A-certain amount, of boasting is  good for all men, as it relieves somo  pent up pride that is bound tb have  its effect wIidii let loose. But too  much boasting becomes a menace to  the welfare of the community and is  not much of a boost to the fellow who  lets it loose. When boasting goes so  far,.as to knock some other fellow it  must have an evil effect on the one  who does the boasting.  Tho other day a public speaker in  one of our cities stated that a certain  paper's editorials expressed as much  ignorance of the constitutional law as  did the speaker's heel. We have  often read these editorials, and have  come to the conclusion that they  were clean and wholesome. We never  saw the heel, so are unable to judge  in the matter.  Denies It l������y His Actions���������  Not long since our premier of B. C.  stated that the legislature, of which  ho was the head, was the highest law  of tho land; (yet a few days after he  issues a writ against a lawyer who  makes what our premier considered  a false statement. What we would  like to know is why he did not call  a special session of the legislature to  deal with th������ matter. Surely the law  courts cannot bo final in this matter!  What Will Happou and When?���������-  Many men who have studied the  present state of affairs in connection  with high prices, high wages and fast  living have issued a warning that we  are walking on a tight rope, and that  like all tight ropes, the rope is almost bound to .break. What will happen when it breaks and when will It  break is-the.question many are now  asking. It is up to everyone of us  to keep our eye on that rope aud go  easy when it is about to give away.  Don't let it break, rather consider  the happiness of the people. These  may sure be considered the times of  high prices, but we believe the common people are much happier now  than they were when they did not  have so much loose change to spend.  Not too much may be gotten for the  Joseph Oliver, solicitor, son of Premier Oliver .on  behalf of the I-'romiar  against. U. T. Elliott. K. C. Mr. Oliver  will be associated in the case with M.  B. Jackson, K. C, M. P. P., as counsel  The proi'nur claims $50,000 damages  The writ follows:  1-^-The' plaintiff is a fanner and is  and at all times materia] in this action has been," minister of railwa.ysin  the government, of. the  province     of  I British Columbia and premier or said  j province, and  resides at 1887     Fern  Street,  in  the city of Victoria.  2.���������The defendant is a barrister-  at-law and resides at the lity of Victoria.  3.���������Tiie defendant falsely and maliciously wrote and published of the  plaintiff in the form of a. telegram  bearing date the 17th day of April,  1920, the words following, that is to  say:  "Then two men named PcUey  and Keith were notified to appear before you in respect of  large land areas in (he north  with view to ascertaining what  port tons of lands they represented should be taken for returned  soldiers.  "In course of resulting proceedings you made personal ex- '  aniinntion of such lands and selected some for yourself, abandoning the lawful reason for  presence, namely to find lands  suitable for soldier settlement  . and tlie result was that agreement to deliver certain lands to  you at nominal price served to  protest large area" from soldier  settlinent."  Moaning thereby that in his capacity as premier and a minister of  the crown, and knowing that "two  men named Petley and Keith owned  or represented . certain lands, the  plaintiff sent for the said Petley and  Keith and iniated proposals for ac-  quiring these lands or some fo them  and that his object in so doing was  to have the province fo British Columbia acquire these lands for the  course of continuing such negotiations the plaintiff subsequently proceeded to a personal inspection of  said lands and such inspection was  made by- the plaintiff on banalf of  the government of British Columbia  and in the interests of returned soldiers and that in the course of sucn  official investigation for the aforesaid public purpose the plaintiff conceived the wicked idea of taking advantage of the information he so  gained and covetously, dishonestly  and in breach of trust and contrary  to good morals, did obtain an agreement to deliver to the plaintiff for  his personal and private purchase  some portion of the said land and  which portion would otherwise have  bei'n acquired by the government  or province aforesaid and for returned soldiers, and that such agreement to deliver land was obtained  through corrupt influence, and the  purchase price agreed upon was improperly land unfairly low and less  than the true value of the land, and  that hy reason of tho acts and matters aforesaid the plaintiff defrauded  soldiers, or those "interested in the  settling of soldiers, out of certain  available and desirable lands, or  prejudiced such persons iu the, matter of securing desirable lands for  settlement.  4.���������The words complained of were  written and published by the defend  J<"IETY  YEAlt.3 AGO  AND  THE  LOGGING  BEE  'Tis sixty years and something more!

The . debate a-  rose on a government resolution   .to i  The fifth annual Canadian Bicycle  Weoic is being observed from May 1  to S throughout Canada. With the  modern ideas and modern methods  throughout the bicycle field and a-  mong all bicycling enthusiasts, it  has become the established custom  to hold a formal opening of the  season by staging of a "Bicycle  Week" early in May* each year. The  plan of conducting a special week  for cycling in the spring season originated in Canada but the' feature  was soon adopted by the bicycle enthusiasts of the United States with  the result that the celebration is  now observed simultaneously in all  parts of the North American continent.  Every effort is being made by trade  representatives, clubs and individual  to feature tho benefits and advantages of bicycling so that tho general  public will awaken to the possibility  for utility, exercise pleasure and  economy that are incorporated in the  use of a bicycle. It has been pointed  out that there is grave need for economical practices on the part of many  people under present conditions and  it has been urged that the simple  bicycle provides a means of salvation  for such persons. This applies particularly to those who . are compelled  to make constant use of street car's.

But criticism, curiously enough, came chiefly from rural members on the government side  of the House, although George Boyca  of Oar let on���������himself a farmer���������.declared that if a man wanted oleomargarine and was prepared to pay-for it  there  was no  reason  why he should i  the city quite  remote from carlines. The bicycle is  one form of transportation that will  prove to be economical and time-saving to suburbanites. Moreover, the  saving in car fares soon pays for the  investment in a wheel. This is only  one of the many phases in which the  bicycle is playing an important role  at the present time.

The effort to  make the items on the credit side  equal those of the debit evidently  provoked the following comment  which appeared in his columns recently:  "Prominent among the worries of  the management of a paper are the  constant demands for free publicity.  Every mail brings shoals of them  from all sorts of people with a fancied claim for space. It is also surprising how many local people are  obsessed with the same idea, that a  publisher is a species of lunatic who  delights in paying printers high  wages and incurring other large outlays for the sole purpose of handing over his space gratis to all and  sundry with axes of their .own tu  grind.  "In reality, ther.e is a sharp line  of distinction between the news jand  the advertising departments of a.  paper. News may be defined generally as comprising accounts ot  events of general public interest that  have taken place, descriptive artiicles  and editorial matter, and announcements of metings and other coming  events of interest only to those immediately concerned should be classed as advertising matter pure and,  simple, and should be a source of  revenue to a paper instead of an  expense, for be it remembered that  every line of news costs the publisher money to produce.

CRITICISES   B.   C.   GOVERNMENT  The Financial Times severely criticises the British Columbia government over the vDolly Varden Mines,  saying in part:  "Brief news despatches within the  past few weeks have mentioned the  action of the British Columbia legislature in passing a special act respecting the. Holly Varden Mines in  that province, the effect of which*  was to confirm tlie rights of possession of the Taylor Engineering company, as against the original owners,' the Dolly Varden Mines corn-  pan}''.  "Full details were not disclosed in  these despatches-, but they are now  coming to hand, and they are fraught  with such significance for all investors that fuller publicity is warranted -than the case has hitherto received in this part of Canada. The  effect of such a piece of indefensible  egislation, which rides rough-shod  over every principle of British justice and fair play, hardly requires to  ,ie pointed out, for it strikes not only  at tho inalienable rights of property,  but at the welfare and prosperity of  ie province itself.
