Long Distance���������SO.  PROKLICMS COiM^RONTrXC  li. O. PCULISHERS  President J. \V. Taylor of tne Canadian Press Association came across  the  continent last week to  Vancouver to addres tire -members    of    the  British Columbia division of the C- P.  A. on'problems confronting tiie'newspapers of the Dominion.       Me    was  heard in an hour's address given before t he divisional convention in the  Hotel. Vancouver.      As general manager of  the Woodstock Sentinel-Review, owner of the "Rod  an dGun"  and  a weekly  paper,  and   for many  years an active olllcer of the Canadian  Press association.    Mr.    Taylor ' was  well  qualified  to give sound advice  tc the publishers of British Columbia.  Mr. Taylor told the gathering that  the first duty of the press just now  was to prepare itself for the education of the public in order that after  the war situations might be properly  -*and adequately met. The .press could  not educate the public until it    had  educated itself.    Honest, intelligent,  diligent and careful study should be  given to these problems, for the press  could only hope to  carry  conviction'  when it had proved its ability to  deal  with the matters it undertook to discuss.It  must  establish  its   right'not  only by its intelligcncc.but also by its  honesty, he declared.     So long as any  section of the press was under suspicion   of   being  the   mouthpiece   of  anyparty, taction   or class    so    long  would it speak with  but diminished  power. It would be obviously useless  therefore, for a press, which was itself "tied up" to appeal to the public  to rise above party, class or faction  in settling the new and  grave problems of the day.  There never was, he added, such a  time as the present for plain speaking  The press 3hould, therefore, bo courageous and deal with matters fearlessly. There was no use in scolding  or ridiculing, and dogmatic statements would not do. An endeavor  should be made to get to the root of  each trouble and, after reaching, an  understanding of the difficulty, to  make it plain to-the public. Wh^n  evidence had been furnished of the  honesty of purpose and of the indep-  ence of the press, what the papers  then said would be received with due  importance.  The press must relieve itself of  the suspicion that it is merer/ tho  mouthpiece of capitalism, continued  the C. P. A. president "The papers  ���������should stand by the working man  when ho is right.  U> M��������� Residence Phone  ONE BIG UNION IS ���������*-*,.    .  WHAT THE IDEA IS  Calgary, May 27.���������Mayor Marshall  of Calgary has received, th efollowing  telegram from Senator the Ron. Gideon Robertson, minister ��������� of labor,  which .thei.latter- sent from\Wiunip?g  last night:  ".Replying to your telegram. I have  been here since, Thursday last and  have very carefully considered the  cause of the existing general strike..;,  which the strike committee claimed  w.as called for the purpose of forcing  upon certain employers recognition  of the workmen's right to collective  bargaining.  "The employers affected prove conclusively that they had no objection  to their employees organizing the.:a-  selves and these employers have dealt  with, committees of their employees,  elected as representatives of the various craft unions concerned in their  ���������industry. The employers have furthermore expressed perfect willingness  to meet and confer with executive officers of the various organizations  if desired, but they refused to deal  with a body known at the metal  trades' council, which is. elected by  other employees outside of their own.  '���������Twenty-four hours before the  sympathetic s^-ike was called, the  premier of Manitoba urged an adjustment of thejtnatters in dispute by  arbitration, and, in a final attempt  to avert a general strike, asked the  committee if they would cancel t ie  strike, provided the employers would  agree to recognize the metal trades  council. To this a negative reply wns  given.  "Subsequently, events have proved  conclusively that the motive behind  the general strike effort was the purpose of assuming control and direction of industrial affairs, also of nu������ni  cipal provincial and federal activities  so far as t hey were being carried on  i nthis city, and with the avowed intention of extending that control to a  wider field.  I have no hesitation in saying that  the "One Big Union" movement is  the underlying cause of the whole  trouble, and that the Winnipeg general strike deservies no sympathy or  support from, the labor organizations  outside of Winnipeg."

Victory Theatre  11 is now some years since' the  Hon. Representative of Dewdney riding, Mr. Oliver did (he  . honor' of addressing * them on  matters political, or any othei  for that matter. Undoubted!;,  quite a number will turn out U  hear what������the premier has tc  say on what he is doing ' to  .advance the interests of the- province and make it a better am  grander place to live in.  We are all interested in tlu  , reconstruction policy of the  government and sincerely hope  he will tell us what he has done  since he last spoke in Mission  City on the hustings. He made  promises then that we hope he  will be able to tell us that he  has fulfilled.' Three years is a  long time and with opportunities he has had he should have  a nice long story to tell.  There is one thing that we  can tell the premier, and that is  that he has not as many political friends in Mission 'City today as he had when he- ran for  office in 191G. He may however have found sonic new ont-s:  to make up for the loss. lie  should, if he has done the bo.pt  he could, for the district and  the province.  Another thing we can tell  him is that there have been a  number of people watching to  see some legislation or government act, for. which lis is responsible, that would make  them admire him as a public  man. Whether they-have failed to find such we are una Lie'to  say, but we hope they have not.  hi any case we will welcome  the premier of our fair province and it is hoped that a  large number, will turn out fo  hear him.  ed.of stumps and the balance of  the farm seeded down and util-  hv.itl for pasture make tlie ideal  combination.  ii is true that where !ne land  is cheapest.and most easily a:-  tililiable roads are frequently an  unknown quantity.

Cattle thrive on stump   hum,  seeded to pasture    and    sheep  pen so of tho government- and  the people. \ Further comment  is  imnecesssary.    Standard.  British Columbia is now a  government of deputies. The  ministers have received their  annual passes and are now travelling where the wind lislelh  tiioir expenses being paid by  tho people.'It is a great thing  to' be a minister���������that- is a  minister of the 13.

When  ed in the unclearedf.bush. Hogs  in due course we    know    that  There is a little paper published in Sidney near Victoria  which is one of the greatest of  boosters for farming that can be  found anywhere in the province  and here is what it says:  To the man who has a hanker  ing to farm and has not the  capital to buy improved laud,  the coast of British Columbia  offers unparallelled opportunities. There are many small  unoccupied islands between the  Mainland and Vancouver inland  susceptible of cultivation, .and  there are many thousands of  acres of logged off lands at various points along the coast  which developed as farms would  produce a comfortable competence for their owners. Muoh  of this land is open for pre-cm-  tion, and other tracts could be  pXirchased from the govern men:  or from private owners at reasonable figures.  The introduction of modern  land clearing methods and   machinery makes if-possible    fori  thc man with small capital to I  hnve a .penchant for seaweed  and other piggy delicacies to be  fo aid on thc beach at low tide  m.t* wh'er'-! they have ample  range will generally keep in  good growing condition on the  food they find along the water  front and thc roots 'they grub  in the woods. Poultry raising is  easy and profitable, and in,many  p:jo:*es hens could be fed very  largely on fish which had been  cooked to prevent the flavoring of eggs. 'Climatic and other  conditions are so ideal for the  raising .of goats that, a Swiss'  cheese factory should be a very  profitable industry.'  As yet the agricultural advantages offered by the British  Columbia coast are comparatively little known in other sec-  lions of Canada, in England  and in thc United States, but.  it may be expected that as the  news spreads and the other sections of the world come to the  knowledge of what this country  has to offer, the coast will become peopled by a prosperous  thrifty agricultural population.  ��������� Sidney Islands Review.  Man Has His Troubles  Man comes into this world  w'thout his consent, and leaves  V;ainst his will. During "his  "lay on earth his time is spent  i-o one continuous round of con-  uaries and misunderstandings  by fellow beings. In his infancy he is an angel; in his  Ivyhood he is a devil; in his  manhood he is everything from  ;i lizard up; in his duties he is  -i fool; if he raises a family he  ;.-���������; a chump; if he raises a small  crack he's a thief and the law  roses hell with him; if lie is  peter man he is a poor manager  and has no sense ; if he is rich  he is dishonest, but considered  rooiart; if he is in politics you j  can-t place him as he- is undesirable citizen; if he stays away  from church he is a sinner arid  damned; "if he donates to foreign missions he does it for  show; if he doesn't he is stingy  and a tightwad. When'he first  comes into the world everybody  vsiuts to kiss him; before he  '.*r:ies out they all want to kick  heir baby is a twelve pounder  named Grover, or Theodore,.or  Wooclrow, we have thai neighborly feeling'that breeds the  real democracy. When wo  read of death in that honu\ we  can mourn with those that  mourn. When we see them moving upward in (he world, onto  a farm and out toward the  country club neighborhood, we  ear*, rejoice with those that rejoice.  Therefore, men ami brethren  when you are riding thr mgh  this vale of tears on th eCalif-  oinia Limited, and by choice  pick up th*-! little country naper  with its meagre telegraph service; when you see its arra:- V  countryside news, its interminable local stories; its tiresome  editorials on the waterworks,  the* schools, the street railroad,  lhe-crops and the-city printing,  don't throw down that contemptible rag with the verdict  that there is nothing in it. Bat  kr.ow this and kno wit well-; if  you could only take the clay  from your eyes and read the  little paper as it is written, you  would find all of God's beautiful  sorrowing, struggling, aspiring  world in it, and what you saw  would make you touch the little  ps per with revent hands.���������Walt  L'Kson.  -.4  clear a tract of logged off lond I him.

Recently.the department of education concluded that it would open  correspondence schools for the benefit of the coal miners. No doubt  a sum of money was set apart for  the purpose. A circular was prepared outlining the plan, and<copies of  same sent. to the many newspapers  struggling for existence throughout  the province, with a request that it  be given publicity. ''As wo have.no  other means of reaching the public  than through the .medium, of your  paper, we take the liberty, iaud will  be pleased, etc., etc.," or words to  that effect accompanied the circular,  which is equivalent to a government  road foreman going into a store and  saying: "We have no other means  of fe eding our men than by you supplying us with groceries, and we will tremendous influence  be pleased, etc." Without a. question  the road men.would starve to death  unless a suggestion were made that  Also alon������-|tlie &roceriea would be delivered en  I a cash payment basis.
