Bowser,   who  mooting in l">ov/d--  Theatre. A  large  ntinibc.]- of-people} wore -unable to  gain 'admittance. . The speaker and  Mr. .1. A. Catherwood the Conserva-  tive candidate were both well received, and there was a decided absence  of   heckling. .  Mr. J. A. Catherwood. the candidate spoke briefly concerning the  condition of ,the roads under tlie Oliver iidmiuistraiion. and comparing  them with what they, we're in l'JlG  when I-ioinier Oliver sought election  in Dewdney. .Some parts that were  at I Hat time good roads were now'almost impassable even on horseback.  ago that they would vote against the  Oliver government. Oliver never was  tho choice of the people as premier  lie was merely an accident. The  speaker said he was not sorry that  Oliver had been premier as it enabled  him (llowscr) to gut .acquainted with   except' in likely places  -"Nothing doing this  A  voice:  week."  No. no gravel is being put en the  Dewdney Trunk road, all hough Dr.  King's graved was being lavishly'  spread over many of the roads of  the provin.ee The speaker stated  that most of Dewdney's appropriation was since 1016 spent in supervision.- thus' I lie roads suffered with  the   prc-scni   heavy   traffic.  Lie referred to the Nicomen Island  delegation which had mot .Mr. Dowser before tiio meeting. . He was of  tlie same opinion as Mr. Bowser tliat  there was.no serious obstacle in the  way of dyking those lands satisfactorily, and if elected" it was his idea  to get-'lho.work done just as soon as-  possible. He intim-'ited that his opponent'had an engineer cm the way  now who   would   complete Ins  work  the people and to regain liis lost  health. ; lie had 'travelled all over  the province at his' own expense,  'everywhere lie had seen dump loads  of Dr. King's gravel. The government  wore going to build a unive -sity. and  had found employment for men in  Victoria just a- week b-ifo e the 'election. *  He referred to the Land Settlement board. How Mr. Maxwell  Smith had been appointed, fired,' and  Nelems put in his place, and he in  turn votccl out as'chairman by the  other members of the board, and now  last Col. Davis was the man al the head  of the Board, but that Mr Smith was  better able than any of them io carry one the work. A nplicy was being  carried out that was never .given any.  Gold is where you find it���������  but no one/with any. pretense  to reason will search for gold,  The  same statement. is' true of oil,  Which at current '<< prices may  safely be regarded' as liquid  gold. . There is hardly a more  interesting subject than that of  oil. -  The newspapers,, are 'filled  with-stories about oil, about its  increasing value, ���������"'the tremendous difficulty th'atl," marks the  endeavors, of all oil companies  to produce enougii oil to satisfy the-ever increasing demand.  Consequently, ii'is but natural that the oil experts are now  checking up all available geolo  F&tt&Uft.^  lv*2  the  on  the  consideration.

Mrs. J.  Ii. Preston entertained  at  CAMPAIGN  NOTES  speak   in  afternoon  on December  If   elected  get a primary  of flic Fraser  1st.   (Laughter.-)  he   would   endeavor   to  road on the north side  and explained tho ne  cessity of a primary road north of the  Fraser, stating that the government  paid for the up-keep of the Yale road  and also the Riverside-Huntingdon  road. Two miles of thy road on the  north side had never been touched  by the Oliver government owing to  a dispute with a municipality. Three  years was a long lim? for a road to  "stand-up''  under present conditions  In regard to the road around Ni-j  comen Island along the Slough"' he  thought the best method wars to raise  the road to its proper height and  maintain it at the expense of the  government.  The   speaker   told   of  how   during  st.ru cti on  capital of  had  O.  K.  purchase  previous" high waters the former government instead of charging for the  hay and oats had given this free  and charged it to the consolidated  revenues but. iha Oliver government  was charging 7 1-2 per cent when  they borrowed it Tor 5.4.'He thought  the government should not charge it  at  all.  Mr. Catherwood closed his short  address by asking that he be sent to  Victoria as the member for Dewdney  on   December   1st.       I Applause L  Mr. W. J. Bowser was loudly applauded on rising, lie was in fin a  fettle and spoke in his usual interesting manner referring to his- remembrances of Dewdney and where  he first spoke at Whonnock, when he  accompanied the late Sir Richard Me-  Bride through the district. Those  were the days when it was "Dewdney  Dick". 'Iiio Dewdney Trunk road  was one those hardy annuals which  dated back as far as 100."., but be  thought that when the provincial  government, when Mr. Manson represented the riding, built tlie steel  bridge across the Pitt river that Mcj  Bride had contributed considerable towards tlie Dewdney riding, but  there must be-good roads on each side  of the bridge cm. the north' side of  the Fraser. During Mr. Oliver's regime part, of the good roads had  grown up, while the people had been  sur-faxed.  Premier Oliver Avas not constructive, but destructive. He was so destructive, in fact tliat he did not believe that Mr. Oliver would make a  good leader of the opositibn. He  could not understand the premier's  obstinacy hi regard''to Nicomen Island dyke.' There" was no great obstacle there. It could be worked out  to the satisfaction of (.lie people there  and-especially, as they were willing to  pay for it. The government have defeated themselves. People arc more  'sensible and fierious today limn ever  and proiuis!V9 do not. go. they want to  see actual rcmtliH and that, is why  the promises of Mr. Martyn will gain  him nothing.    People decided a year i ^'electors' (?)  afraid to tell the settlers what tr.eii  land would cost them. It should be  settled by placing a value on the land  and selling it to the soldiers' at'a  price that would enable them to have  something to show for their money.  . Tlie Department of. Industries .was  also "under fire. " He" 7Bowser) had  not said anything against this as it-  was assisting the returned soldier,  hut he believed that 90 per cent  of the guaranteed loans will be a fail  ure, aad.it will bo "found that before the war most of the returned  men ass'stcd were probably grits of  strong leanings. This department  should bo under the control of a very  experienced business man,  .He took up each of tho soldier settlement areas showing tliat money  had in many instances been squandered. As an instance of how this  incompetency was carried out he referred to the supplies sent Col. Lister'  at C res ton. Col < Lister intimated .to  the government that some of the supplies could be purchased cheaper at  Creston than from the Tammany com  miltee in Vancouver. So dissatisfied was Col. Lister that he was running as "a Bowser candidate. Merville was a seething mass of discontent.  The Sumas Reclamation  was another point la en up  Bowser, who slated that one  and a 'half dollars were involved with  a capital firm that had but $300 paid  up capital.

It will therefore be of particular interest at this time to  read the announcement of one  of the large aggregations oi  capital which has already commenced the work of drilling for  oil in the Fraser Valley.

For ,the premier of this province  Honest John got .rather a cool re^  ception at Abbotsford on Saturday.  No person appeared to have much-  time to spare on him.  Honest John was .much refreshed  by his nice little sleep in" the Alex-;  andria Hall.  Saturday afternoon.      ,  ���������'  Oliver  said  at  Chiliiwack  that if"  Bowser had completed the .P.

Of the Matsqui dyking scheme  Mr. Oliver referred to the promises  of Mr. Barrow that anything over  $40,000 would be chargeable against  lhe province, an acknowledgment of  the   government's   mismanagement.  He told how the' folish little government at Victoria thought thoy  could get an oil gusher for $1590,  and at the same time turned down  the Imperial requests when it was  highly important that oil should be  found on or near the Pacific coast.

What W3 have been  is not so important as what we are;  and what our fathers will not suffice  for what we should .Io ourselves.  While every protection and courtesy  becoming our claims to a high standard of civilization, should bo extended to all foreigners sojourning  within our borders, the right to own  property and the privileges of the  .franchise should be granted only to  desirable members of the white, race  whether British subjects or not, the  native Indians alone excepted..  I do not. take this position on the  narrow and questionable ground    of  our  superiority,   but  upon   the  high  moral plane that it is a crime against  the human  family to encourage the  mixing of races, which in nearly even' case results in lowering the stan-.  dard of both, and, if permitted here,  will eventually so weaken the morality,  physique . and   mentality  of  our  people that we shall become an easy  prey to nations    who    continue    to  maintain their purity of race.      The  strength of an enemy is not nearly so  dangerous-as .weakness in ourselves;  and if this is not to be preserved as  a white man's country, then I grieve  for the children who are born in it.  Weakness;- indifference.1  stupidity-  or political expediency    has    marked  our dealings with the subject of immigration at alomst every step, and  the question must be dealt with in a  strong, courageous and just manner,  very shortly, if Canada  as a nation  is  to  take  her proper place  in the  world and be dominated by the race  who laid her foundations.    This is a  most important national question, in  which British  Columbia,   because of  her peculiar interest, should take the  initiative in bringing strong and persistent pressure to  bear on  the Dominion Government���������not in the spirit of dictation, but of education and  of   sound   logical   argument.  Briefly, these are my views on  some of the "larger issues, and. if  elected, I will support any sound legislation, no matter by what party or  individual introduced, which I deem  to be in the public interest, always  exercising the right to use my own  Independent judgment, with "duo regard to the welfare and wishes of my  consituents.

According to a  letter written by Mr. Bowser, the  opposition leader, his policy respecting financial aid to the municipalities contemplates a per capita grant  to each. The Victoria Colonist, assumed merely for the purpose of illustration that, the per capita grant  would be $5, points out that the revenues of the city of Victoria would  be increased thereby to the extent of  $250,000 per annum, a very useful Move and adopt Mr. Maxwell Smith's  addition.    On.the same basis Grand ''But in dolng 80 il wiU undoubtedly  Mr. Maxwell Smith, says the Vancouver Sun, who wihdrew as an independent-candidate in strongly supporting Major Martyn said he did so  because the Major was quite as independent as himself.
