E-E-  CRANBROOK ELECTION  If a host of personal friends and a  lengthy experience,in the,civil service  count, Mr. Wallinger, '(member-elect  at Cranbrook, ought to make'a popular and diligent representative. His  vistory at the poll may be accepted as  an expression of sympathy of the  Qranbrook electors for a man who  has been dismissed from a position in  the provincial service after,a'position  the provincial service after a period  of many years, and a desire to send  him to an arena where he will have a  freer hand. As a critic of matters of  international administration he  should be useful if he overcomes the  temptation to dwell on his personal  grievances ,with the. government.  So fair as' the government is concerned, the loss . of the Cranbrook  seat does not affect its standing in  the new-house,.being merely a set-off  against.:the Nelson gain. Nor. can critics of the government claim the'decision to be a public reproof of its  policies. The issue���������despite all efforts ������to ,the contrary���������narrowed itself \do,wn to .the personal ' grievance  of Mr. Wallinger, in jwhich ,he lias a  host- of .sympathizers and supporters,  -v Mr. Wallinger's election' is being ac  claimed by Mir. Bowser's friends,as a  triumph for .the ". Opposition leader,  and coming.oh^the eve of the Conservative convention, where the party  leadership tis at, stake, will strengthen* Mr/'Bowsef.'s" hands .and undoubtedly, land'.him ,the "leadership. Whether'he'will'win anything more than  the leadership 'is' a matter for doubt.  5 The 'defeat of the' government candidate makes: it"'necessary to inquire  into the authenticity-of the-reported  press dispatches'wherein Mr. Taylor  was "alleged ,to haye' declartd in his  closing'speech of "the campaign that  he would resign .from the government unless .the government, v.oted at  the .next'.session .a .grant for a new  courthouse for Cranbrook. This is  an unpalatable -form of campaign to  electors -on the coast who recall the  chain of ' courthouses and prisons  which formed election bribes in -former .r.egimes,-and the misplaced, dry-  dock now being, built,on .-, Vancouver  Island ,to fulfill a Union .government  election" bribe.���������World;  A concrete example of what is expected, by the people of Vancouver  lies in a message -recently received by  an up-country ^farmer who makes a  specialty of tomatoes:  "Don't ship���������any more, tomatc  Two carloads received' from Orego'i).  Market broke," This was" a.wire're-  ceived last week by ,a -big tomato  grower at Keremeos from .a dealer  in Vancouver.  Buy "Made in B. C."    goods   is   a  slogan which manufacturers of Vancouver have been hurling at"us ^incessantly  for a    considerable    time.  The public generally    have accepted  the soundness of the principle,    and  wc believe there has been a   disposi  tion to live up to it.      But it's a pooi  rule   that  won't  work     both     ways.  Down at Keremeos they grown the fli<"  est tomatoes in the    world and the:  grow them in sufficient quantities t������  supply the requirements   of    a larg  er city than Vancouver. Why shouh'  they be deprived of their,natural moi  ket? Is the tiller of the soil to give al  and receive nothing In return? Is'nt i<  a little unreasonable to expect    hiu  to patronize home    industries    anc  then the moment he has something t<  sell to find the home    market close(  to him by the importation of   foreign,,  products'.  The sooner the people at the Coas(  realize that it is to their . own inter  ests to encourage and foster the de  velopment or the great fruitgrowing  districts of the interior, so much tlu  better.  It is not only the fruit ' men win  suffer from the selfish policy of th;  B. C. manufacturer. Every branch o'  agriculture in the province can.sho\  similiar, instances of all the callpu:  indifference to the interests- of" th.  oldest of all industries. It is ':  mighty poor policy which only work:  one way; a hollow-sounding, slogai  which says, "Buy in B. C.," when th-  B. C. buyer is ousted from his marke-  by foreign-grown products.���������Kam;  loops Telegram.

And the results will  be?sure If you advertise honestly and  gifje service. A newspaper can bring  people to your store but it can't make  the people by your goods.

YJu can do.it.by using'..printer's ink  and that's" what (to use a slang  phrase) we hain't got nothing else  but.  Our Sentiments Too  Vancouver is the headquarters of a  "Made in B. C." movement which is  to "be commended in every particular.  That is, the movement as such "is be  commended. The originators have  -.be������n active" in impressing upon the  people~of British"Columbia that the  us$ of goods made in the province  wojuld do great things for the material'prosperity of every resident.  Much printer's ink has been spread  ovpr fair white paper, made in Coast  paper mills, in pushing the propaganda^ the British Columbia manufacturing interests",' but it strikes the  farmer and' fruitgrower very forcibly  that the manufacturer is not living  up:,to the doctrines his propaganda  adyances. ���������  The largest manufacturing industries In BritiBh Columbia are those in  which Nature holds the guiding reim-.,  agriculture, lumbering, "mining and  fishing,, the last .thrive of these receive plenty of consideration from  the'manufacturer, but the first is  treated as being somewhat in the nature of a cow to be milked. The agriculturist, whether he be stockman,  farmer or fruitgrower, is supposed to  furnish a market for the goods of the  B. C. manufacturer, but he is at the  same time expected to compete, under heavy handicap; with the produces  of other districts and foreign coun-  tries.  , Few political candidates have tri  umphed over a greater ���������' comtiinatiqi  of forces than those, brought togeth  er at Cranbrook this week to keep N  A. Wallinger out of the seat, rendered vacant by the promotion of Hon  Dr. King to the federal cabinet.; This  by-election was proceeding along. th(  usual lines when Hon. John Olive;  happened'along and infused his unmistakable,-brand of personalities in-,  to the contest, accusing the Conserva  tive candidate of malfeasance while  acting as government r agent. - Tha;  was the start; and when the entire",  Victoria cabinet came along later  there was nothing too gross, or corrupt in the way. of insinuation.    -   -  A character sketch by -one-of Mr.  Wallinger's friends, will show what  manner of man he is. According to  the. Oliver outfit, he was. all kinds of  a haphazard1 partisan who, not only  used government money but was a  bungler to. boot! Nothing further  from the facts could be the  case. Mr. Wallinger's advent to the  legislature 'ranks at Victoria will be  an acquisition to that body. It will  hold none more honorable and hardly  one "of his peculiarly upright calibre-  Now Premier Oliver "and his colleagues knew all this quite well; but  that was nothing to them,- so long as  they captured the seat. They went  just a little too" far,' because their  methods reacted against them and  Mr. Wallinger's friends,-whose number is legion, rallied to him in a  fight, which, on the Liberal side, was  very discreditable.  It was a great assault., on Cranbrook that the cabinet, carried out.  The news despatches suggests too,  that they made such a to do there  that a' dog went mad and bit the Hon.  Mary Ellen on the leg. There is  notching to crude for these ministers  to pull off, either, and bribes galore  were offered and for the most "part  considered at their true value. John  Taylor, the Liberal candidate, went  so far as stating ' that lie would resign if an addition was not forthcoming to the courthouse, immediately he was' elected."  But Cranbrook kept its head and  sent the crestfallen legislators back  to Victoria, electing Mr. Wallinger,  whose moment this is, having come  through a wretched ordeal, falsely  testified against, yet with flying colors and an enhanced reputation for  fair dealing and what these Victorians would be the last to understand,  the conduct of a gentleman.���������Kam-  loops Standard.  When the.present very natural  reaction' has passed-away, as it'most  assuredly will, it will be seen that the  reign of .Queen Victoria was not only  more' prosperous than any recorded  period of equal length,in the history  of..any country, but was also an age  of-great men-in".nearly every field.  And it ,was an age .which knew how  to honor 'their greatness. Where are-  i*<"i statesmen-jtbday whom men res-  ;;.-ct as "their grandfathers respected  Peel; Whonr men .worship ' as their  fathers .worshipped, Gladstone; to  whose genius they"look.up in dazzled  wonder, pride and delight as men  once looked.up to'the mysterious figure of Disraeli? And the^sam'e contrast, may-been seen in.other fields.  ' Where .today .is .the .writer who is  heard and reverenced as a seer, not  by the readers-of popular newspapers,  but by the leaders'of thought, the  science, the art, the public life of  -.he nation���������as Tennyson and George  Eliot, Carlyle and Ruskin. were  icard and reverenced over fifty years  ago? Where are the religious leaders who today stir hearts and minds  is Newman did in one way during the  ���������eign of Victoria, and Maurice and  Cingsiey in another, Pusey and Lid-  donin yet another to say nothing of  iien like Spurgeon and obscurer  .eachers of obscurer followers?

We have queer doings in   The  Isle or Saints, queerer than ever, for  the Army is split up  'into   opposing  sections.    The Four Courts (Dublin)  had been occupied by about 500 De  Valeraites for the last    month,'or so,  but have now been driven out'by the  Free State men',.who used an 'eighteen  pounder and fired' from an armoured  car across the Liffey. ,   When driven  from there-the insurgents    took refuge in three hotels in Sackville St.,  which have now been    burned down  and a lot of prisoners taken-and Cath  al Brugha shot.'  He was the head of  the rebels.   This said DeValera .made  his escape for the Gresham Hotel and  is now with his followers at Blessing-  ton,.where there is a battle going   on'  at present, at least so said the "Cork  Examiner" of yesterday.     We   have  not had a Dublin paper for about '.a  fortnight, and no postal delivery    or  despatch, so we are/in a poor way for  news',of the world. Tlie city of Cashel  was visited by a swarm of rebels who  are billeted on the Inhabitants. These  follows search every one    going    in,  oven their pockets are turned.inside  out, and'even a doctor or a vet. surgeon going on their rounds must get  a permit before they leave the town.  We are hoping tlie railways will    be  open soon so that-we can   have a delivery of mails, etc.    Coal is said to  be almost all used up-at.the creameries.    Flour and sugar    ditto.      The  d���������1 mend us, I say, when we had .it,  very many, who,' a, year    ago   were  .bawling out'for freedom,   are   sorry  too late.   All the motors in the country are about done   up    from  .being  commandeered and then badly -' and  carelessly handled by ignorant   bo'sT  thoons, who did not care   how much  they.damaged the vehicles. - It will  be pleasant for all when law and order are established, but I fear it will  be a long time before that happy "time  arrives.    It is a-notorious   fact'  that.  Irishmen make good.rulers    in - foreign j lands" but "cannot "govern ; their  own people.    Many people here think  we are in for- troublous times through  want of work.'   At' present, a lot ' of  money is being,doled out'by the Irish  government as well as by    the British. -The workers are not the docile  lot they used to be, but are.   full   of  communistic   and  Bolshevistic  ideas  of the" rights of property.   I suppose  you noticed that Cleeves*   employees  have seized the firm's creameries and  are working: them for their-own belief  fit, and of course, they have ,the  red flag floating over every factory.1  Tipperary Gas Works, too, has been  seized by the workers, mostly" because  it belonged to a'Manchester Co.-and  partly on account of a dispute about  the wages of one? of their men. Tipperary urban rites' are uncollected to  the tune of 1900/pounds. The ratepayers complain there is no money in  circulation, in 'the town, the country  people being shy about -,'- paying up  their bills. u0n the whole ours is a  miserable country and will be much  worse in the near future. I may be a  bit pessimistic, but still things point  the wrong way.' There is no telling,  when this letter'can be" posted. -j  .    '   t,  \  "July 12. i  No postal delivery yet.

Best Legislators  Journalists Make  "Newspapermen make the very-  'best legislators. That is something we  ���������are finding out in the States.. President Wilson drew heavily on'newspapermen for. his cabinet and executives  and .throughout the .States there is  now a recognition that they are better fitted than,lawyers and businessmen to take a .broad and impersonal  view of public questions."  So'says Mr. Edwin J. Sidey,' publisher and editor of the Greenfield  Free Press of Iowa, who is, in the" city  visiting his sister, Mrs. J. B. Campbell, of Lynn Valley, wife of the ship-  pingmaster of the port of Vancouver.  Mr. Sidey, who was formerly a member of the Iowa House of Representatives, has himself been asked to be. a  candidate for the State Senate; at the  coming elections.  A newspaper printer and publisher  for thirty years, Mr. Sidey lived as a:  youth at Woodville, Ontario, but was  taken to Iowa by his parents and'  grew up in that State. ' He is an enthusiast over the influence and importance of the country newspaper,  his-two sons'.having recently graduated from-vocational and journalistic  1 colleges, and" entered his- business.'  ; "The weekly country paper-is read  from cover to' cover. It has' the most  faithful constituency of all papers.  It-takes an interest in >the 'personal  welfafe-'of the people as well as ' expounds the-public issues to its readers!- "It,is the-training ground of hundreds'of the men who reach the highest .rank in metropolitan, journalism  and-public service," he says.  The war period, which spelled disaster to numerous newspaper 'enterprises, has proved'a benefit'to'those  which survived, ;he says. -In. his adjoining town-of Creston, there were  three dailies, and four weeklies struggling for existence before the war.  Now there-is one prosperous daily.  While "in Vancouver * during the  coming month,-Mr: Sidey is writing a  series of articles about British Columbia, its' beauties, its prospects, its future and its handling of- the liquor  and Oriental'problems. -: Though very  well satisfied >ith,; his lot in Iowa he  Potato Specialist     \  Pays Visit to B. C.  The Province of. British Columbia  has indeed been fortunate in receiving a visit from such a noted authority on potato diseases and seed certification work, as Dr. Link,-Specialist  in Market Pathology, United States  Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. The information which Dr.  Link has obtained after several years  of careful investigation both in the'  laboratory and among -potato growers in various parts of the, United  States is of the greatest value to the  potato industry in North America.  During his short stay m tnis Province he visited, in company with Mr.  Tice,.some'of the leading seed potato  growers in Saanich, Victoria, Comox  and Chilliwack.'  Dr. Link particularly emphasized  the necessity for careful Inspection in  connection with seed potato certification work on account of the wide  prevalence of two diseases, namely,  leaf roll and mosaic. The organisms  for these two diseases have not yet  been isolated. In the Eastern States  it has been shown that aphids transfer the virus'from deseased to healthy  plants. Here, where ��������� there are no  nnhids' on potatoes it is probable that  infection is carried by other insects.  Experiments are required-to-determine what these insects are.  - -  The necessity for isolation and  early rogueing of certified seed po-  f-n.to plots was emphasiztd by the  Doctor. In one case in particular.cer-  Lified seed had been used ,in three-  quarters of the acreage, ordinary seed -  in the rest. The certified seed row's  were found to be producing three to  four times as many potatoes. Diseases,' however, were found to be '.very  prevalent in the ordinary seed. 'The  result'was that' the certified-' rows  were becoming ' infected by insects  feeding'on the diseased'plants of the  ordinary seed. t  EDMONTON  Tht market-conditions here far-the  past ten days on some lines particularly ripe .tomatoes and . cucumbers  have beenUhe worst the market has  ever known.

The insolence of a considerable percentage of motor   car owners is making such a thing necessary  and will bring it about.    Though    by  the law, the   foot   passenger      who  crosses the street has the right of way  over the automobile, auto drivers are  continually    exasperatingly   ignoring  the rights of the pedestrian.      Seven  out of every ten cars drive    straight  ah������ad regardless of   both   the   legal  rights of the man on    foot,   and    of  common courtesy.'   Hair-breadth escapes are becoming so .numerous that  the long suffering   pedestrian citizen  is beginning to get   sore.    ; Soon    he  will act.---Letter in Ottawa Journal.  THE KNOCKERS  "Tlie paper is rotten, the paper    [3  dead.  "It's a heluva rag," so everyone said.  "Its news is all stale and it jokes are  punk  "Its looks are disgraceful, its copy is  bunk."  They slammed it and knocked it and  cursed It all day,  No words could express'   what , they  wished to say;  They composed in its    honor a grim  hymn of hate  ���������Yet oh, how they howled when the  paper was late!  toi  BIT OFF A MAN'S THUMB TIP  "Do you recognize this?" a solici-  at Walsall (Staffordshire) Police  Court asked Thomas Edward Smith, a  miner, producing the end of a man's  thump and nail from an envelope.  ��������� Smith answered that    he   did not  know whose it was, but the solicitor  proved  that it belonged    to Samuel  Newhill, another miner,    and that it  was bitten off by Smith.  Smith was fined 20s.  Country of mine, that gave me birth,  Land of the maple and the pine;  What richer gift has this round earth  Than these fair fruitful    fields of  ftine?  Like sheets of gold thy harvests run,  Glowing beneath the August sun;  Thy white peaks soar,  Thy cataracts roar,  Thy forests stretch from    shore    to  shore;  Farfamed thy northern prairies He,  And under an open, boundless sky;  Yet one thing more our hearts Im-  ' plore,  That greatness may not pass thee by!  f  1  'I  }i  A  m
