Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY! OCTOBER 20, ,1922  '.**#  In reading the speech oi!  Premier Lloyd-George and-considering what he has to say.  how much does it remind us of  the words often used by the  premier of our own province  when he has a bluffing spell  on? Premier Lloyd-George intimates that he would be - willing to lay down tlie. reins of  power and lead the quiet simple  life. Premier Oliver has, it is  said, often told his friends, and  somotimes his opponents,-thai:  he would'gladly step down and  out if the Liberals could get another man just as good as he  was to fight Billy Bowser.  Seeing that no one, not  even Manson, has come  forward yet who feels capable of keeping Bowser in  place "Dear Friend" Oliver still  holds saw. We are not expressing, here the private opinion of  all Conservatives and thousands of Liberals, or else we  would say that 90 per cent, of  the voters of this province wish  sincerely Premier John Oliver  would some day soon be introduced-to the man who was willing to come forward and say "I  am the man who can keep the  leader of the* opposition just  where he belongs, leave it to  me old man.!'' The aged premier would immediately see  the point and say "You'r on, I  leave it-to: you" and Honest  John would immediately pack  his grip for the Delta potato  patch wi$h the determination to  lead the dyked life.  But when Lloyd-George, in  timates that he would willingly  resign, the-high office he holds,  there are not many people who  hope that he will.   Abroad   the  good and bad in both or all parlies. There are Liberals today  who do not think that the. sun  rises and sets on the leaders of  their party; just the same as  (.here are Conservatives who  differ on the big political is;,  sues,of the day���������such as the  tariff. A politician nowadays  lias to be pretty clever to "pull  the wool" over the eyes,.of all  the people, or in other words  "hit below the belt," and not  be severely criticised by party  members, to say nothing about  being lowered in their estimation.1 Once, a man loses the respect of his party he might as  well pack his grip aiid retire  from political life.  "A yellow', yellow cur," what  an ear-splitting drum-busting  scream of an expression this is  i'or one .politician to call another politician because opinions  differ! The small boy when he  gets cornered in an argument,  or is punched on the nose and  feels he is not able to come'  back, says, 'I'll tell papa on you  and he'll fix you,' or when he  gets a little older*and his papa  does not loom so big in his life  he calls out,: 'You're cat-faced  piebald, lantern-jawed, lobsid-  ecl monkey' or some - such. expression; and'it would appear  that when he becomes a man,  educated, and entrusted with  the privilege of legislating and  controlling for the people, that  when he sees he is beaten and  lias really no come-back that  will raise him in the, estimation  of his party and the electorate,  he starts, in calling, names���������  flius we have "the yellow, yellow" cur" \-'f or- an'- expression-  showing defeat, showing-that  the truth has hit   hard   and in  people think .that probably.. hejt.iie COrrie-back there - is a dan  is the right   man in the   right .ger   ., .One would ..almost sup  place, and the   people   of   theip0g"e' that, the man. who gave   it  mother country do not   appear|CXpresSton was some   1~'~1" '*'  high of-  to-be over .enthusiastic   about* ^j^i ��������� m   a   country   of   law-  Lloyd-George quitting   his job.j breakorg> bootleggers,    and    a  Of   course   there   are   alwavsf  e'ople wi10 fr^ a great vocabulary.   We feel" sure that sorae-  thqse -who would be willing to  take chances, but on the whole  the English people know when  they are w;ell led, and know  that by his success in-the Eastern'affairs he has in many oth-  '.er matters given of his best.  ''' The similiar expressions of  the two premiers and the accomplishments in their different spheres is worthy of coiv.-  inent. We can look at the  work of the little Welshman  and say that he has indeed done  his country and the empire real  service: we can look at the  farmer premier of B. C. and instead of pointing to what ha  has accomplished, would say  that the greatest service he  could do this over-taxed province would be to call- on the  lieutenant-governor and recommend his successor. There  is "a difference in premiers, is  there not?   ���������  bodv must be behind him, but  so far .behind him .that they ne-  [ tan shirt, a Stetson hat,' or Hart  Schai'fner and'Marx suits. You do  not always realize at the time of purchase that these famous names have  been drummed into youi; head until j  they have become your indicators cf  quality.       '     ,  Now, how have these manufacturers obtained that standing? What  sort of appeal have they adopted in  their copy?', How did'they gain their  reputation? Even among those who  have never worn or used their merchandise They' have USED 'SELLING  PACTS���������just 1 iIce the salesman presents to you from behind the counter.  They have adopted the principle, of  salesman in print. They have sold  you by giving important reasons why  their > merchandise represents the  best in its line and should' have your  consideration:  ,. On the other hand there are concerns from whom we have never  heard, making better merchandise  than many of the well-known ones.  These people do not carry their message to the public. They are discovered. They serve only a limited number of people. They may be carrying  on a profitable business. They may  even continue to grow. -Undoubtedly  they wer known before the great con-  concerns you are so familiar with.  But advertising shortened the  distance for the well-known companies. It. increased their volume and  reduced their prices. Their advertising returned dollar for dollar.  Sales were multiplied faster. The  kind of raw material���������care in making���������inspection, testa and other valuable'deciding factors of a sale were  carefully gathered und the whole put  into an interesting story.  How ridiculous it would be if a  salesman were' to call upon yo,u an'i  say "Safetite Securities���������Better Buy  Them," and walk out.- Yet that is  what hundreds of advertisers aro  doing^today. Depending upon a remark to make sale and' wondering  why advertising doesn't pay. To  build up business'one must compete  for it. One must argue and know  their merchandise so thoroughly that  they, can sell it in comparison to any  other.  Therefore, copy must always be  selling copy to be effective. It niust  assume that no one knows about your  goods-and no one will' give your advertising a second reading. Each  message must be complete in itself.  Are you.as a business man waiting  to be .discoVered; or are vou placing  your goods before the public in a  manner to'let them know what'they,  may expect to see when they come to  buy it? The advertised page with  its prices and descriptions are what  the buyer wants, next UVquality. -  A friend told the other day how he almost  lost a good nurse. The girl was excellent in her  position, .but when she. answered the telphone  ��������� she "spoke into it as-if-.she was standing-on t^he  back step shouting across,, lots. ��������� It was pointed  out to her that the telephone was a very responsive instrument and that all was necessary was  toxspeak in an ordinary tone of-voice.   ���������'  .������ ���������  "I guess I know' how to answer the telephone," she replied with a little heat. And " it  took a couple of hours to pacify her.  How do you answer the telephone?  ^British Columbia Telephone Company  AN AGREEMEN  N*/?  Last Monday' representatives ' of  the growers in B. C.met all the Calgary jobbers. An agreement was  reached- to sell No. 1 Macks wholesale-at $2.25,' crates at $1.50. Singularly- enough riiore Macks were; sold  on Monday at the old low price than  has been sold any day this year.  One retailer in the Calgary City  ver want to catch Lip to him. An'Market bought a large block of crat-  ver want w^luiup Vpnmv ed' Macks at $1-20,     0f course'the  expression sucn , as     a yeiioy     le wa6. made bet.ore tlie agreemeni,  yellow cur"'does not meet with  the approval of the rank -and  file of the Liberal party of this  province,., who wish tp.be governed wisely and well, and  want their leaders to .fight  the battle of politics like men,  and men only." See-Vancouver  World criticism in this issue.  \ DVICKTISING   SHORTENS  THE MARKETING PATH  "80  20  There-is no question but wev  gfre better governed when there  ': i-3 a difference of political opinion/and ^that the electorate is  divided into,two great classes,  'f-- at least, who following certain  principles, already established  think that ' their method of  governing the people is (he  best. Thus we have Liberal  and Conservative. Nowadays  people do not take their politics  as "seriously as did our forefathers, for some reason .or  other. They are probably getting wiser as the ages roll. But  even yet there are those who  think that their political opinion is .the'only one- worth respecting, and seemingly will  fi,ght for it to the last ditch.  There "are'..npt many, however,  wha-will insist-that there is one  prorfeyr..view of all political matters and that theirs is absolutely the right one.    We all read   and think for   ourselves,   thus  we are better able to   see   the  Remberirig first that advertising  is selling by. the printed word, then  keeping this fundamental fact in  mind, copy writing can be made easy.  A personal solicitation is not possible  in your lifetime to'each one of your  prospects. A man would be ov.er  years old wore he to start in, at  and talk to 100 a day before he  could reach a million. Yet by the us-.:  of publications, you can carry your  message to, many hundreds every day  if you want to. , Or you can talk once  a week through the columns of this  paper.        ,  You have heard men remark that  thoy do not read advertisements, it  is true thai many do not. , On the  olhorhand the responsiveness to campaigns is so enormous that the coun-  trv's mammoth industries owe a very  large measure of their success to  telling tho peoiile    ubout    their pro--  din-Is. '   ,  Here are all the great-., Industries  manufacturing something .��������� for some  one, Many aro making the same  merchandise. New patents, new  Idea'n, new materials, *���������'��������� development*  of all "kinds are employed in an endeavor to protect their business. The  greatest single protection to any  cf.mpHiiv Is the people's good will..  People reading the news of- great  factories compare the claims made  about, their niorchandi.se. The public  knows by experience what it wants,  und now keeps informed of superior  p'oints by printed ,announcements  Publicity destroys false claims or  bad merchandise as quickly as' it  makes good  goods  famous.  Everything you wear and eat and  use In'Die home were advertised to  you. Unconsciously you buy a. Paris  garter, an Arrow collar,   or Manhat-  but his deposit of $50.00 to secure  the .sale-was not put up.until Tuesday morning and the apples were delivered on Thursday'.  Another large retail grocer had' a  bona fide order in before the agreement took place, but found when delivery was made, that his order was-  doubled. Another dealer connects 1  with a Self-Serving Grocery was offered a chance to come in, but declined. Some' of the " salesmen for the  wholesalers are telling the retailers  that the agreement is only for a  week, and that retailers may "wait  and see"   before .buying.  We found a poor lot of Maclts marked No. 1, (/some, picked too- soon  and- all small in side) retailing in  the City Market at $1.75 per ' box.  These apples were packed by the  'Cliristian '. Brotherhood. ..of % Grand  Forks. We consider the wholesalers  in this case have".: not secured the  market price for. these apples.   _..'  We will watch' developments in  the carrying out of this agreement  w^ith the grower's' representatives  and will report on* it in the next bulletin.  We have had little faith in consignment, controlled either by shipper or jobber, and in our opinion  consigned apples should not be subject to brokerage. - The tension prevailing amongst. Jobbers here docs  not forbode a healthy selling state.  We consider that until B. C. shippers and growers are in a position to  do their own distributing, that P.O.  B, shipping point sales; will be impossible. '"'.'.,  Today, Friday, crated B. C. Mcintosh Red apples are being retailed by  the Frisco Stores at $1.50 per crntr-.

When you wake up at daylight and  can't eo to sleep again it's a sign it's  a holiday.  VANCOUVER, Oct. 14.���������The question of remission of fees to returned  soldier students at the University of  British Columbia has been the cause  of some discussion in undergraduate  circles during,the past week. Last  session the .University authorities  followed the precent of the previous  year in excusing its returned soldiers  from the payment .of fees' which average $50 for the session.  The loss caused by this act was approximately $9 00 8, the exact amount  by which the University exceeded its  government budget. This was made  good by a special grant from tho  provincial authorities but it was indicated to the University authorities  that they had exceeded their rights  in granting such free tuition.  Accordingly the University refused this session to excuse returned  soldiers from payment of fees' and  when any protests were lodged the  Board of Governors set aside a special grant of $500 to be applied to  most nc-.'dy cases. A3 this sum can  be applied only to a very limited  number of students, there has been  further representations by. returned  soldiers who will ,now approach the  government direct.  They point out that the sum of  to the government but that fifty dol-  tothe government but thai fify dollars-means the "difference between  attendance and -non-attendance to  many soldiers. These representations will be made to Victoria immediately in the hope of securing remission of fees.  Alex.* S.-Duncan  Barrister      Solicitor  Notary Public  ^OFFICE  J. A.

Tariff Rates Agreed  WASHINGTON, 6<it. 18.���������The  administration tariff bill as finally  perfected in conference was presented recently In the House, and ' the  conference report on it bearing tbe  signatures of (he Republican managers will be called with .'the expectation that it will be disposed of soon.  The measure then will go to the Senate, but because of opposition to tho  dye embargo and other provisions,  action there may be delayed a week  or more.  ,As, how framed the bill is estimated roughly by the experts to  raise approximately $400,000,000 in  revenue on the basis of ' the .present  column of import trade of the United  States. '   .        d*  Above Level,of Wooa Bill  The level of its rates, auctniding to  Iho experts, is slightly below the  level in the Payne Aldrich bill, the  last Republican protective tariff,  but is considerably above the level  of the Democratic Wood law in force.  The bill will beome effective after  President Harding signs it, replacing  both tho Underwood and emergency  , tariff acts. It was 'designed, its  fminers have said, to meet the un-  ual world economic situation. It  confers on the President, of the United States broad authority to decrease  or increase rates on foreign valuation  and to declare American valuation,  that is, the wholesale, selling ,p:ice in  the United States as a basis for assessing duties.

A jiwi���������n*i-     ������.������-v~ '  That splendid British regiment, the  Scots Guards, as they are known today, looks back to the marry monarch,  Charles I., as the chief author of  its regimental being. In 1649; King  Charles authorized the Marquis of  Argyle to raise a regiment of 1,500 men  to protect the recently planted Scottish  colonists in Ireland. It was a fateful  beginning. The regiment had its  birth in a troublesome job, and has  fattened in glory on troublesome jobs  ever since. Its history is tho history  of Britain's wars, and it is a long  history and a stirring history, for  through all the almost 300 years that  have since rolled by, it has been only  now and then that the Scots Guards  have languished at home in peaceful  ease. Their colors have flapped in  the bullet-torn breeze of every country, from Hull to _ Halifax, in which  Britain has had a war, and as Kipling  intimates, that's a long way if you go  in the right direction. If they weren't  with Wolfe at Quebec, it was because  they were otherwheres engaged in  nailing down the blessings of British  civilization with claymore, bullet and  bayonet, ������ and altogether the Scots  Guards has taken a giant part in Britain's big and age-long task of making  the world safej'or democracy.  In the days before Charles and hi a  jovial court, the hard fighting Scots  were not popular in .England. Their  stout blows were usually directed too  near homo,.nnd if they were to employ  their talents to the full advantage-it  was necessary to. go farther abroad.  Thus,' we find a company of Scottish  Guards/upholding the national repur  tation at the court of the French King,'  Lous XL When a Scottish King  came to England, the Scots Guards  followed, and most of them later  found their way into Argyle's force,  since when the regiment under one  name or another has retained its entity, and bad added to its 'standard  the names of most of the historic  battles of the British army as well as  a cloud of others less well remembered. What the Scots Guards did  in the'Great War would take columns  to tell. The list of their battlei is top  long to be quoted here. They were  an important part of the ever-glorious  contemptibles. From 1914 to the end  they- saw it all. Again and again the  Scots Guards came back from the  front a tattered remnant of what was  once a regiment, and just as often it  went back again,' stepping. blithely  into the maelstrom of death" and destruction to do or die according to the  Scots Guard's standard.������ The regiment's decorations  won during  tne  var included 5 Victoria Crosses, 26  Distinguished Service Orders and 681  other rewards for gallantry.    ..'������*'  It is the Soots Guards Band that  Canadians are most particularly interested in at this time. They will  tour Canada during the present summer, under the auspices of Canada's  Great War Veterans, and Canadians  will have an opportunity of hearing  one of the world's'finest bands in  concert. This band is itself century  old, and oritics say it has never before  achieved the high level of musical  reputation that it now. has, under the  leadership of Lieut. F. W. Wood, who  has won an outstanding position  among the1 : world's" great ��������� interpretative . conductors.  This tour was arranged for the benefit of tho Great War Veterans' Association, and its purpose is largely to  direct attention to the fine work of  the Association. An important feature of the tour is the fact that it is  under the direction- of Dr. Charles  Harris, whose unrivalled experience  in connection with the British Em;  pire's most important musical undertakings is world-wide in its scope.  The band will arrive in Canadr, about  May 1, on the Canadian Paciflo, liner,  " Empress of Scotland.*' _..__'*   pound and 30 per cent, to 45 cents a  pound and 50 pet cent.

RtiADY TO FIGHT  SUNDAY BY-LAW  Legal and financial assistance to  any of the members of the Westminster and Valley Rod and Gun Club in  event of prosecution by municipalities in respect to Sunday shooting bylaws, was decided on by the club at  a meeting held this week. This  work will be done in conjunction  with the Vancouver organizations interested in game shooting. Eminent  legal opinion has stated that such  by-laws are beyond the powers of  rural councils unless with the consent of the province as represented  by the Attorney-General. It is understood that the city, of Port Co-  quitlam prepared a by-law similiar  to those passed in other municipalities, but before the final reading was  made the opinion of the Attorney  General was sought, and this led to  a reply to the letter to the effect that  this was a Dominion matter.

Want Mill Levy  Made Compulsory  PENTICTON, Oct. 14.���������A long debate on the'question of school taxation, during which numerous suggestions were put forward as to means  of providing 'more money for trustees with which to carry on the educational work of the province, feat'-  ured the closing of the convention of  the B. C. School Trustees' Assciatior,  on Thursday afternoon.  In the end the delegates agreed on  the resolution proposed by Mr. H.  W. Swann of Burnaby to the effect  that the government be asked to increase the grant to school boards, for  teachers' salaries as provided in section 19 of the School Act.  Duncan was    unanimously chosen  ���������as the next place of meeting, and officers were elected for    the    ensuing  " year. <���������  The presidency fell by unanimous  decision, and amid much enthusiasm,  to Mr. Joe Harwood of Vernon, one  of the oldest and hardest working  members of the association. Mr.  Harwood promises to instill a lot of  energy into the association, for he declared that he would make it a point  to visit every branch association n.s  well as many school districts during  his, term.' The other officers are:  First vice-president, Mrs. K. Ross of  Nelson; second vice-president, Mr. O.  T. Smythe of Duncan; secretary-  treasurer, Mr. J. E. Wilton of Point  Grey; executive council, Capt. George  A. Grant of Burnaby, Mr. J. F. Nicholson of Vancouver, H. F.' Hewitt of  Oak Bay, and Mrs. C. T. Rae of  North Vancouver district.  Want Compulsory Tax  Of far-reaching influence if adopted by the government is the resolution which the Greater Vancouver  district branch succeeded in" putting  through. By an amendment to the  School Act last session, the legislature permitted councils, at the request of school boards, to levy up  to one mill for school purposes. Tlie  resolution asked that the amendment  be changed to read that it shall be  compulsory for councils to make this  levy at the request of the trustees.  With this amendment in force the  Greater Vancouver trustees see their  school  difficulties   solved.  The debate on the taxation question opened with a drastic resolution  proposed by the resolutions committee as a substitute for numerous'  suggestions from all over the province. This motion . recommended  that- legislation be pushed authorizing the provincial government to  assess and collect from all persons-of  the age of 18 years and over, 1 per  cent, of their wages, salaries or incomes, the same to be allocated for,  educational purposes, and pay over to  school boards in proportion to the  amount contributed by the respective school boards or districts.  Resolutions  Voted  Down  Revolutionary as was this resolution, it had several" supporters. . The  general view prevailed, however, that  it-was the duty of the government to.  \yorry about how the money should  be raised and not of school boarus  When this motion was defeated, . the  resolution from the North Bend  board asking.that a "fundamental  change be made in the system of  taxation for school finance," was introduced. No one appeared to know  just what this implied, so it was voted down.  A Minimum Salary  The question of adopting a minimum salary for teachers provided on-  other lengthy discussion. It was de  cided that each board will be circularized with the proposals for governing this, the matter to be brought  up at the next convention. The delegates apparently favor the principle  of a minimum salary if the details  can be worked out with justice ro  both teachers and trustees. The  danger in minimum salary, it wiw  pointed out, lay in the minimum becoming the maximum in many case*;.  Of interest to teachers was the announcement of Mr. F. C. Stewart,  speaking for the department of education, that the School Act will bo  amended regarding dismissals and  resignations, so that these ,can be  "made between May 31 and August 1  and also between November 3 0 and  December 16.  A resolution from    Duncan asking  The World Sadly  Reproves Manson  If is unfortunate that,-on the-first  occasion on which he'finds'himseif  under fire, Attorney-General Manson  should have lost control of his temper and judgement; it is much;more  unfortunate" when a responsible  minister of the crown takes the final  position that he will refuse to "waste  time" in considering serious charges  made by responsible public men.  Hon, Mr. Manson, in his position  as Attorney-General, is not merely  the guardian of his own honor  (which he has the right to decline to  protect) and custodian of the honor  of the government, which, with the  consent of his - colleagues, he may  decline to protect; he is also the custodian of the honor of the hundred  thousand or so of the Liberals who  ���������form the support of the Provincial  government throughout the country.  His refusal to face the issues raised  by Hon. Mr. Stevens can not fail to  cause them a humiliation which.they  have no right to suffer.  Vastly greater again than the  above consideration is the duty which  the minister charged with the upholding of the law owes to his office  if public respect for the administra-,  tion of justice is to be maintained.  Hon. Mr. Manson, in refusing to  "waste time" by dealing with the  plain and explicit issues of fact raised by Hon. Mr. Stevens, intimates  that a coat of tar and feathers awaits'  the'ex-minister of trade and commerce if the latter should over visit  the  Omineca district.  Hon. Mr. Manson issued this intimidation either by direct- advice  from his' friends in the Omineca .district or not. If he was so advised of  this contemplated act of mob lawlessness it was his duty to take steps to  prevent it and issue warning to the  intending criminals. It would be an  insult to Liberalism to suggest that"  the Liberals of Omineca propose such  lawlessness, for Liberalism does not  work by such methods. To be frank,  it is more suggestive of the methods  of bootleggers, angry at interference.  If, on the other hand, Attorney-General had no direct advice from hi?  friends .in the Omineca district, he  lays himself open to the charge of  personally inciting lawlessness.  After all, there are simple and  constitutional ways of meeting ������uch  situations, and neither youth; inex;  perience nor ill-temper'tan be pleaded as a reason for not observing t.u  usages of responsible government.���������  World.

The bereaved family in this their  time of sorrow have the sympathy of  their many friends and neighbors.  Pears. are getting scarce on the  market although there is' a considerable quantity of late varieties of excellent quality throughout the lower  mainland and Gulf Islands if they  can be successfully rounded up. Lq-.  cal peaches are practically off the  market, most of those on sale a^ present being imported, prices stiffened  accordingly.  The potato market is practically  on the fence. Apparently there are  suficient in the province to supply  the demand. This condition, appears  to apply to most of the potato dls-i  tricts throughout the ��������� North' American ��������� Continent. Such an unusual  condition is apparently resulting in  temporary stagnation, and buyers  are evidently waiting for the harvest  or some other unforseen contingency  that will give them a cue for action.  Some good specimens of DOtatpng  are reported from the Lillooet and  Kamlodps districts where digging is  in process. There are also some very  good grades showing in the Fraser  Valley area.  Compulsory Dominion potato  grade is now enforced and the responsibility of correct grade rests  with the shipper and not with the inspector.  Advice to growers.���������Don't -pile  your potatoes' onto the mark-'t by  consignment. It only forces the dealer to unload at a low figure. Messrs.
