BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, NOV.'19, 1920  We hear the saying that the Bowser government ruined the credit, of the province of  '.British Columbia;, also- that Bowser is not  absolutely honest.  in 191.0, British Columbia 3iad floated a  loan under the Bowser government in New  York City-for. $1,000,000 fo be loaned out to  the farmer at a lower rate than, could be  En;  'secured  by  England  and  France  ;i>  ������"0  fo  the  'i. cost tue jjiperais .^t'couu to auui  books of the Conservative party'for .their .13  years in office, and they found that $103,-  000,000 of the' people's money had been expended and  not one dollar misspent.  This  would appear to indicate that, t!;  berais have been indulging in day-dreams,  anil dreaming what they would like to be a  reality. The Liberal campaign . against the  Conservative party of this province has  been  one of the dark stains on the political  Liis province, and we do not be-  eve mat in any province in  tho Dominion  history of t^  lieve that  lias such a campaign of slander been inaugurated against- any administration as has  been  conducted  against  parry of this  ^articular.  ,ne    Conservative  province  and .Mr.   Bowser    in  Believe us Bowser can stand it, and'when'  he goes back to power on December 1st next  he will have a life job as.premier of this province.  "How is Mr. Martyn going to do'it?" ,1s he-going to be the whole government himself and  SHELVE HON. JOHN OLIVER, or on- what  authority has he' the right to make such line  promises?- ��������� The electors of Maple Ridge are  entitled to know.  Mr. Martyn also talks about favoring co-operation between the   government   and ��������� good  roads associations and municipal bodies in the ���������  furtherance of the cause of' better   highways  throughout the Fraser Valley.   : All very fine.  But-the one.form of co-operation that muuici-  palifies want, either for good roads or for other  municipal needs', ia a share of the. revenue that  the government is grabbing for the provincial,  treasury.    Mr. Martyn is silent on that.     The  lead given  by the  Premier in his manifesto  '.'That the question: of the more equitable adjustment, of taxation is most important," docs  not lend itself to any flight of imagination on  the part of his Dewdney candidateure.  Mr. Martyn should face the Conservative  promise, that made by Mr.' Bowser ih his capacity as leader of the Opposition, ^The Conservatives-if returned to power, will give assistance to Municipalities by paying them a  per capita gra.:<t from the Consolidated Rev-������  enue which .will have the effect of reducing  faxes." That is what the municipalities want  ���������not. a line of irresponsible promises.  The  .1   iiC  the  The  ciuestion  is  asked that  tho  Oliver  government has, borrowed $27,530,000 in  four years immediately after coming into  power that the credit of the province could  not have been so bad after all. But the big-  question is what has become of all this money  that Oliver is responsible for? There is one,  thing sure that not much, of it has been spent  on the roads of the Fraser Valley���������except in  supervision.  ' Elsewhere we publish' the Conservative  platform as amended at the annual convention of September, 1919. Compare it with the  claims of the Liberal party and see how much  of it was stolen for legislation in the session  of 1920.  "Don" Martyn, the promising young politician for Dewdney, with the accent on the promise, has been reading good literature it  seems to this paper, and we would not be surprised if in his studio one would not find a  well-marked copy of the proceedings of the last  Conservative convention held in September  1919. Just compare his platform in regard to  the cheaper stumping powder and assistance  to co-operative fruit industry, etc., there is a  very great similarity, and we all know what  Premier Oliver's ideas are on the fruit industry, as expressed in the Dominion campaign of  1911 when Reciprocity was the subject of discussion. Oliver could not have been "Don's"  tutor 'in this respect, so the question is where  did "Don" get it?  He read it out of ths Conservative platform  and thought it so good that he just simply  said, here is a grand idea, I'll just take it and  people will say that Bowser stole it from me.  Murisy 1'ine Promises��������� <.  With all the irresponsible    enthusiasm    of  youth, says the British Columbian, Mr. Donald I J. Martyn, Liberal candidate in Dewdney  presents his election platform    of    promises  that OOFS THE LIMIT.    Everything the Oliver government has not done for Dewdney Mr.  Martyn promises he will do.    Thus a greater  than Hon. John Oliver has come into prominence.    He reiterates these   promises   at   the  meetings.    "If you send me to Victoria,"   he  declared in his Haney -speech, "I pledge    to  work' for. the construction of a hard-surfaced  roadway from the City .of Vancouver to Mission." * "  But the report does not say how Mr. Martyn  proposes ..that this will be brought about.      if  he goes to Victoria, lie goes as 'a'supporter of  the Oliver government, and Premier Oliver, is  not building any more primary roads, outside  of the Pacific Highway and. the Transprovin-  cial Highway links.    The Premier was most  emphatic about that in liis reply to a deputation from tlie Surrey and Delta municipalities  concerning their application for    the    Scott  road fo be made a primary road, and he was,  definite in his refusal concerning the North  ���������Shoro highway.    The people of Maple Ridge  kiicv, .hat.    &o the question comes up again:  3Iaut-KJI.������i.������r��������� Wi!h������ut. the Scaius���������  following editorial appeared    in  ���������Vancouver World last week:  Seven hundred people listened in vain last  night to hear from Premier. Oliver how he  slew the demon patronage. On the one big  pledge, whereby he. attained power he was as  shy and silent as. an erring woman regarding  her past. Though- he loudly defied his critics,  he carefully avoided their charges: Like the  comic-opera hero, he made- the cowards run���������  but they couldn't catch him. He was not only  dumb as to his exploits slaying the monster,  but ignored the specific statement that it is'  roaming the streets and roads ofthis province  in lustier health than for years past.  He was dumb as well on. the charges read on  the floor of the House last session That he had  guilty knowledge of the matters'for which he  permitted Mr. Macdonald alone to suffer. His  triumphant reference to the suit he instituted  against his assailant, Mr. R. T. Elliott, and his  recovery of twenty-Jive cent damages deceived  no one.    Most people remember that he sued  Mr. Elliott on    another . charge    altogether,  namely that if improperly acquiring northern  lands intended for soldiers.    By suing on one  count only he inferentially admitted the rest.  Evidently the jury considered that if he did  not consider that the other charges damaged  his reputation, twenty-five cents    would    be  generous allowance for the fracture   to    his  fame caused by the one of which he comnlain-  . ed.    Because the Premier later declared that  these other charges would be. threshed out on  the hustings, and because he has so far overlooked that promise in this    campaign,    The  World yesterday ventured to remind him of it.  He is still silent.    He evidently has no answer.    This will surprise no one familiar with  the Premier's methods.    His threats, like his  promises, are no" index to his performances  "He declared that Mr. Elliott could not assail  him and "get away with it."    But Mr. Elliott  did.    Mr. Oliver warned his junior supporter  from Vancouver that the House could not hold  the two of them.    But it    did.      He invaded  North Vancouver to annihilate Mr. Hanes. But  he strengthened him.    Vancouver last night  saw the giant-killer in  full  war paint,  and  brandishing his club���������but without scalps.  Central's Efforts Are Appreciated  The" Telephone business is now feeling the effect of the  stoppage of industry during the war. Equipment has been  hard to get with the result that all over the .country applications'for telephones cannot be filled. ' In British  Columbia, however, there is practically no waiting list.  The girl at Central is doing her very best to help out in  a difficult situation,-and.'that her efforts are appreciated  'is-shown by the thoughtful consideration which is being  a.ccorded her.

The only return for this is  the knowledge that they did not represent Ihe  wishes of the people.    A   strange   condition  surely, considering our representative form of  government.    This  was done after the government leaders had-taken extended tours of  the province, having   every     oportunity   to  gauge  public  sentiment,  thus  stamping  the  Oliver Administration as an appealer to sentiment, rather than an expression of it.
