A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1919  Tlie greatest ,ovent of the past week has  been tbe elections in Ontario, which have  created considerable interest in this--province for various reasons: ' One of those was  the variety of candidates, showing the discontent of the general public with the present conditions and the old party line politics.  Another of these was the voting'on .the prohibition question, which many people seined  to think affected also this province in a greater or less degree; and then for the first time  the-women-of-Ontario-had their vote, and considering the results up to the present lime it  would indicate that some women have'opinions on prohibition just as well as men,, and-  they are not all on the side of temperance.  Judging from the vote it would appear that  the opinion of the city-people is, that while  they do not want the open bar, yet they believe that under certain control the liquor  should be sold. How far this feeling goes we  are not prepared to say, but there is a tendency that way, if one reads the.signs aright.  But the great surprise out here to us was  the return of so many of the members of the  United Farmers Organization, giving them the  control; of. power. Now- how many of these  are Liberals and how many are Conservatives  is not known at the present, but they were all  one or the other before, they run under- ,the  colors of-the U. F. 0.���������and shall we say good  strong ones too. The farmer has always been  noted'for. his cut and dried ideas on the two  old. parties, and he was the one or the other  out and out, no half .way between for bim.  The great question now is can he be an United  Farmer.lpng enough to secure legislation that  will benefit himself?,  .  SEQUENCE  OF THE ELECTION  An incidental outcome of the success of so  many Labor candidates will be the placing of.  the. advocates of proportional representation'  in a nawkward position. Their practical  strength lay in-the assumption that under existing conditions Labor could not secure a fair  share of-seats-in" our law-making bodies. This  argument at any rate has had the bottom  knocked completely out of it. No doubt, however, the friends of proportional representation' will' think of something else, equally cogent, in a day or two.  LIBERALS NOW HAVE A LEADER  The Liberals are now to be congratulated  upon the fact that they have a parliamentary  leader to whom they can look for guidance in  all matters.politically, William Lyon McKenzie King has been elected down in a small  constituency in Prince Edward Island���������a real  dead sure one where there were no United  Farmers to put up opposition against him.  King has now to bring the Liberal party back  to the pre-war status, which is quite an undertaking.  When someone said one day to Mark Lemon  the editor of Punch, that he didn't think  Punch was as good as it used to be, Lemon  retorted, "It never was."  It is one of the little tricks of the world that  it always thinks it is going to the bad. Sometimes it may think that it is doing it noisily,  and sometimes, again, when everything seems  to be very smooth, it thinks it is sneaking To  the bad on the quiet.  Just now the world thinks it has a special  excuse for being sure that something has gone  wrong with its digestion. The war disagreed  with it. The world will recover from iis indigestion. It always liar,. But its present-  case is so severe that when it gets well it will  I think, be more willing than ever to consider  its diet of ideas.  ���������      Perhaps it will even pause to decide where  it is going.  It is a great thing to know where vou are  going���������to know what you want���������what vou  want MOST. ���������������������������  If you ask a man what he would do willi a  " million you may find out what he wants most.  Maybe not. Perhaps very few people" really  know. I remember the man who, when asked  what he would do if he had a million, said:  'Tclget a large comfortable armchair and sit  down."...  The world is very good at. doing'just-that.  Sitting back and letting things slide once  more is one of the'eastiest things it does.  You must, very frequently during recent,  months, have heard or seen the question,  "What do they want?" You have noted the  question as applied to various enthusiasms or :  protests or revolutions���������to Socialism, t0 Anarchism, to the I. W. W., to the Bolshevists.  There never was a time in the history of the   ���������  woridwhen there were -so. many seemingly  reasonable occasions'for asking.the question.  I have read it scores of times since the arm-  si ice. ' ''.'.'.  Perhaps it would, be too logical altogether  to say that/every big movement has a Big  Wish behind it. Il' every big movement, "direct" aud bloody or indirect and perplexing, did  have a great desire behind it, what, a line thing  it would be to got the cold,facts about these  desires and to luurn just how far apart they  '.���������ire as to destinations! What a'splendid joke  on tlie world if it eoukl be discovered that most  people want, pretty-much'the same thing!'   .  More than once I have thought 1 was on  (he point of finding that most people did want  pretty much Hie same thing.���������Alexander  Black.  The people of Ontario want a farmer government and they are likely t.o get. it. The  people of British Columbia have a farmer at  the head of, its government and one of the  cabinet ministers is a farmer. Although we  have lived in British Columbia over a quarter  of a century we do- not. wish the good people  of Ontario any bad luck, and hope their farmer government will do more'for them than  British Columbia's farmer government has  cr is doing for it. They certainly will be out  of luck if they meet the same fate back in the  original cent. belt.  .lCi'fcctlvencss of your telephone service depends upon tlva co-operation of  those concerned.

But there is one  place where there should be no jokers and that  is in the United States senate. One never  knows where the joker will bob up and make  trouble for the othars. There is a great joker  though in the United States senate and he got  one off the- other day that has caused a whole  lot of comment.

What an awful jolt people-got tlie other day  when they found out-that 'shoes' were marked  up fifty per cent.' Why the cause1 of the investigations. It must be because hides are  almost valueless that the price of shoes are  to go up.  We suppose all the hides that 'were made  before the war' are used up now.  A PARABLE FOI!

The new leader assisted ably by- his Ego  right hand man started hunting for old bills  and records that would -condemn the former  administration for ever and ever.

Of course  they had been beaten but their name must go  down  in political history to future generations just exactly the way The   Oppressors  of the people wanted it to go.'   Yes, there was  a railway being built by the old gang and not  completed.    A grand race was made for the  railway, and the cry of "Graft, Graft"-was reechoed even to. the battlefields of France, the  government butting up 'against the military  authorities in their endeavor to bring a great  builder of railways to Victoria to prove something not otherwise provable;  but this man  was of more use in fighting the ��������� Hun.

The day of Barleycorn  is passing and fruit juice' and sugar  be et should be welcome successors.  /They cost more to produce but the  head does not re-act as violently after  them as it did in the aftermath of the '  extract   ot  golden   barley.    Prohibition may hurt the rye and barley, industry   but   is   certainly   more   than  makes good in making necessary production of sugar cane, sugar beet and  all kincla of fruit.     This is not a prohibition lecture but a call to produce  sagar beet in B.C. and encourage the  establishment of by-product factories  i:. every fruit growing district.'

But. great  progress has been, made lately.  At various places in the Merville  area 250 acres have been stumped  aiid cleared and are now ready for  the plough. Two hundred and fifty  acres more have been rough cleared  and much of this will be available  i'or seeding. Of this' about 20 acres  have l)ocn stumped and cleared.-It is  expected that GOO or SOO acres will,  be seeded  down  litis  winter.  The continued line    woainor    has  iK-cn of gr-ral h'jlp <0'|  a:i every man will be  ���������clearing until it breaks whether hu is  t.'i: liia own place or not; later in the  year when the rain makes clearing  difficult fencing will be commenced.  ��������� There aro twelve finished houses  on as many farms and these are all,  occupied by the men who intend to'  make (heir  living  off them".  As  to  the  price  that  the, Government is going to charge for the farms  tliat  has'not  been   made- public yet  nor the. basis upon  putations   will   he  which such ,comma de';    but   it   is  When Edward, Prince of Wales���������eager, bright  eyed, smiling and sincere ��������� arrived in Canada in  . August, and when he voiced his great admiration of  the wonderful achievement? of Canadians, on the  fields of. battle and at ho;j.'j, once again we were  thrilled with joyous pride.  He asked concerning Canada's reconstruction pro  gramn-*, and when he was told of the Victory Loan  1919, he graciously consented to the use of his Coat  of Arms on a flag, which is to be the prize of honour  for districts achieving their quota in the loan.  In dedicating "The Prince's Flag" at Ottawa on  Labor Day, His Royal Highness said in part  'It is a great joy to me to be associated with the  loan, which is the bridge between war and peace, and  which is finishing off the job."  "I hope every city and district will win my flag."  Striking, and beautiful in design, this flag will form  not only an unique memento of Victory Year, but a  lasting and outstanding souvenir of the visit of His  Royal Highness���������a visit which will remain as one of  the most memorable events in Canada's history.  The reproduction above shows the design of the  flag. The'body is white, the edge red; in the upper  left hand corner is the Union Jack, and in the lower  right hand corner the Prince of Wales' Coat of Arms.  The flag is made in two sizes, 4 feet 6 inches by  9 feet for small cities, towns and villages, and 7 feet  by 13 feet 6 inches for cities of over 10,000 population.  Canada has been divided into canvassing districts  by the Victory Loan Organization. Each city forms  one district. Other districts have been determined  according to population.  Each cf these canvassing districts has been allotted  a certain amount in Victory Bonds to sell. To win  the Prince's Flag, therefore, a district has to sell its  allotment.    That is the one and simple condition.  Anticipating that many districts will buy far  beyond their allotment, the organization decided that  for each twenty-five per cent, excess of the quota one  Prince of Wales' Crest be awarded. Thus the workers  in a district doubling its quota will be the proud winners of.four small crests for their Honour Flag. These ���������  crests v/ill be sewn to the flag.    The Prince's Crest���������  the three ostrich plumes���������is shown at the top of the  coat of arms.  To every organization with fifty or more employees,  where seventy-rfive per cent, of the enrollment invests  a total often per cent, of the annual payroll in Victory  Bonds, a supplementary Prince of Wales Flag in  smaller form���������48 inches by 34 inches���������will be  awarded.  ������  The allotment for each' district has been carefully  considered, and is based on a conservative estimate  of the purchasing power of the district.  Your district can sell its allotment and thus win the  Prince's Flag, provided each person does his or her  share.  You will gladly do your part and encourage your  neighbour to do his.  Remember YOUR purchase may be the one that  decides whether or not your district is to be the proud  possessor cf the Prince's Flag.  The Prince's Motto is "I Serve"  rill You also Serve?  i���������  Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee  in co-operation with the Minister of ���������Finance  of the Dominion of Canada.  ^wscMjrjunairjaasiKiftfM^  ���������*��������� n*rm>*^-��������� f irirtrw**rTTagffi:  he settlement   understood on good authority that a  used   in   hind ' will be given out early this ,week ,or.  ; the beginning of next.    The men are  '. naturally very anxious to know what.  : they are going to pay.  I     Four donkey  engines are now  at  work  and  they and  their crews are  making great headway, the men  being now all  experienced'    hands    at  land clearing.     One of these,'tho one  seen  by  the  Duke of Devonshire,  is  working between the island Highway  aud the sea and has already opened  up tho country so that the Gulf can  plainly..be'seen  from  the  road.  Another is  pulling stumps    at    Head-,  quarters,  and  another  near Smith's  farm.  Two big swamps have been drained"  and   one   has   been   ploughed.    Two  Iractors are on the ground and moie  arc  coming.     One  of  these  tract on-  ie running near, the  Island Highway  ploughing the land  that only a  few  months  back   was    as    thick     with  stumps as the hair on a dog's back.  There   is   no   uniform  size  to   the  farms; they are. parcelled.out-according  to  the  inclination  of the owner  and the nature of the ground.     For  instance there are two or three sheeo  farmers in the settlement who want  to get a tract, of land that'the Lands  Settlement Board had decided not to  use for settlement at all  and  great  care is being taken as.far as,possible'  tc see that the different 3oils found  are  reserved   for . the    crops     that'  sheuld be grown there.    A very care  t'ul  survey  of  the: whole , settlement  has   been  made  by     Capt.     Bishop.-  With him has beenc associated Mr. S.  H. Hopkins,     of    Duncan, on several  occasions Mr. Hopkins coming up for  the purpose of making a classification  of  soils.    There   was   no.great, en-   '  thusiasm for the land to be found in  the settlement when the location was  first decided upon .but    as.;   clearing  has progressed it has revealed a very  considerable acreage of land that was  previously considered unfit for cultivation.   '   Now  many of the, settlers  are ready to tako it.    .One* property  of  the  land   that  has -surprised   the  expert is its' capacity for holding .the .  moisture and   remaining green   long  after   other   and   apparently, similar  soils have become parched and burnt,  up.-   The theory of Mr.  Hopkins'- is  that there is no bed  rock in  Conio.x  and   that  the   hard   pan   underneath  acts as a spong and holds the moisture.  Another point worth mentioning h  that the. Government have a further  option on the .logged.off land of tho  Coniox Logging & Hail way .Company  and.that if they talce up this option  on Black Creek' they will have still  better land than at .Merville and  Headquarters. .1  Forty settlers have-already .drawn  for .their-farms.. By-the/spring the  Land Settlement-Board .is., confident  that fifty, settlers _will.be in a position  to commence, . production;, whether  their crops will be sown for -them- or  they will sow them.individually depends on circumstances. In ... the  meantime during this winter 600 io  8 00  acres  will  be  seeded down.  The one thing that is worrying the  settler now- is the uncertainty as. to  the price they -will have to pay aiid  that should be relieved soon. At the  inauguration of the settlement only  such men as had determined to take  up land were allowed*to.-participate  in the scheme; but today there are  quite a number who are merely paid  wages and are -not' assured- of land.  But the applicant for a job must be a  returned man.  IBI  E. W.   Bigelow  Barrister, Etc. ���������- -  At J. A. CATHERWOOD'S  Every   Friday  Phones:   Mission 1503  Long Distance:   Pt.
