Editor and Proprietor  I removed.  ac  FRIDAY,    SEPTEMBER 22,  1922  33=  The Liberal convention to be held  in Nelson within the ' next few days  is to be a maker of history, if opportunity affords itself. .There is no  telling what a convention will do.. Almost anything is liable to be sprung  at an election. 'Twas whispered the  other day that the convention when  properly seated might raise the,question "of leadership, and having the  aged, premier in a large, meeting he  would not^have the power to oppose  the same as he.had at the meeting in  Victoria last February,, and would  thus have to submit to the question-  being raised. It is well known that  Attorney-General' M'anson wishes to  have the reigns-of power in his own  hands, and his many friends think  that.he would.be.the,right man in  the right place and that the convention would: be the .proper time and  place to spring' the question of leadership. It would-be.possible to have a  leader of. the,party, and he at the  same time'not "the'.leader of the. govr  eminent',.'especially/when the major-       lty of the, people are. of the -opinion \ to enjoy  taking off his hat he. take off,his  shoes. Without entering'.- into the  question of which is right or which  is wrong the Canadian custom is to r,e  move the-head; gear (for-the ' mjMe).-  Men with itheir, head jgear oh, , ,,in a  place of worship oripublic gathering;  whether it be a question . of religion  or not, are not -obeying, the custom  of the country. Other differences of  the custom of two parts of, , the British-Empire mighLbe taken up',- but  the.one is enough to show that there  is no. assimmilation, between vtlie.Canadian and the Hindu. Were the Canadian in India he would . naturally  'obey the customs of the country, thus  placing himself in the receptive  mood.  Canadianism is something to be desired of all who come to make of  themselves citizens of the _ country  and the man or woman who cannGt  obey those principles should not he allowed the franchise until such , time  .as he wishes to adapt himself to,the  land the benefits,of which he-wi3hes  The regulations have not been  changed-in .respect of automobiles  owned by non-residents entering Canada, for, pleasure purposes for a period, not exceeding 24 hours, in -which  case the collector at the frontier.. i&  authorized to,,permit entry withoir.  the usual report upon the owner surrendering his ' State licence card,  which is-to be handed to him on , his  return journey.  The former prohibted ,the granting of-a permit to' a non-resident  owner of an automobile if he ��������� was  connected-with any automobile business, but this restriction has been  r.epioved, as, under such -provisions  the.president, of an automobile company in the United States could not'  bring-his car into/Canada for bona-  f idV.to.urJng, purposes'  -No change has-been .made in the  regulation"governing the admission of  automobiles,for touring purposes' in  bond for a period of six months.  IH>JIHIWIWJI^WilMIIBWWMHm������^y  HOW ALTITUDE IS ESTIMATED  that the(party is losing ground , with  .the .present .leader.  Everywhere ,one' hears the. opinion  expressed by Liberals that Premier  Oliver is,,not .the.,right/ man in . the  right place, any. longer.and that .new  blood must'be injected into.the party  in order.that'it .may become more  popular "with thei people.  Since Mr. W. J. Bowser has been  elected the leader of his rpar ty at,the  recent convention, the Conservatives  throughout the province have become  more hop.efuLand.one.hears more in  favor, of "Bowser now .than ever before. To offset ;this popularity the  Liberals 'will have to, do so,mething  with the"present leader, and many,are  of the. opinion- that it'would be better to scrap Premier John Oliver than  to scrap the P. G. ;E.  < Just at the time .when . the Eastern question comes -up Canada has, a  visit from a~prom'inerit native of- India, asking that the1 Hindu be alloAv-  ed the franchise, in Canada���������particularly those'-who are:'now������ resident' in  . Canada. .< In -an "interview, -with Premier King it is stated that he refused.to grant the request of Mr.Sastri,  and wrote the following letter on,Sep  tember 5th to the representative or'  India.       .   ; .-..", -  "In reply-to ,���������,the . representations  made by.yoJiat. the interview with  my' colleagues 'and.-*myself on Friday  of last w^eek'r arid .which were "the subject of further'.conference between  us, I -desire.to;,assure you. that, at the  earliest favorable moment.'.'the Gov-  eminent .will, be,please ,'to invite , the  consideration ,of .Parliament .'.to. your  request that natives of 'India/resident  in Canada/he|" granted a '-Dominion parliamentary i'franchise, on ' terms and  conditions identified with those'.whir-h  / govern the exercise of that right by  Canadian,',c,itizens generally.  The subject'., is, necessarily one  which Parliament .'alone, can . determine. It will be submitted to -i Parliament for consideration when the  franchise ,la\v is urider'revision.  "In cqnveying-to the Goverment or  India an; expression of the attitude of  the Government of Canada in this  matter, iwe hope that you ��������� will' not  fail to make it clear, that...at the���������pres-  ent time1, in eight of the nine provinces of^which our Dominion is composed, trie Federal franchise is granted to najives.of. India .resident in  Canada ,on terms .which are identical  with those applicable generally to  Canadian citizens."  This paper believes that the Hindu  residentJ<of Canada    should be. given  the franchise on    condition    that.he  comply with those   regulations   .that  Canadian citizenship demands. Whar  would ybu think of a Canadian applying in the Uunited States who refused to take off .his hat and    sing   the  national::anthem,    the .Star Spangled  Banner;/what .would you think of an  Australian, who, wished to  , become a  citizen of Canada who   while singing  God Save the King, refused    to    also  sing the^'Ganadian Maple    Leaf Forever; or'.'an American    citizen applying to become a Canadian citizen who  refused to take off .his hat and participate in ;the.singing of God Save tho  King.   These requirements are necessary to good citizenship    and the individual's personal    views    must    be  sunk in order1 that he may assimilate  with the people or the country whicn  he wishes to'adopt as his own.    That  is one reason why the Oriental cannot  become a real citizen of Canada���������because he cannot lay aside   his   ideas  formulated in his native land.  Among the requirements when v.  Hindu'asks for citizenship enters  the question of jreligion. The British  Empire w!as founded on the Christian  religion. ���������!, The f-ollow'er of Mohammed  or Budda,cannot understand the principles of the   Canadian government  unless he changes (his religion.    The  question i of freedom of speech,    the  question ,x>f   freedom   of ' expression  and the customs-of the    country all  come under this head.    All these are  dear to the true Canadian.    Some of  the Hindu customs, are   directly   opposite to;.that of Canadianism. When  a Hindu ienters his   place of worship  bis religion'requires-that'instead   of  In this connection, the Hindu is .not  the only one who should be made . to  comply with the laws;and customs oj^  the country, while in Canada.t  The-question of the franchse to.the  Hindu will-come before, the Canadian  parliament.  In an old country controversary  regarding the liquor.question-the'following, letter brought forth much  comment. We publish'it not bfecause  of .our belief in .what, the-article contains but of the varied expression -of.  opinion.    It reads as follows':  Sir.���������Mr. Wagstaffe asks me to  produce the name of a medical,man  acknowledged by the profession. ������>s  an authority, who will ...dispute -the  fact that alcohol is a poison. -.My aii-.  swer to this is. the following.

Water,  owing to a curious phenomenon of  atmosphere, boils at about one degree (Fahr.) for every 590 ft. climbed.

A sturdy race has been built up and has  rendered good account'of it'seif in  every part of the world to 'which it  has been made to show of' what-stuff  it is made." - The unrest Sinc6' the  war was, he believed, largely due to  the fact that working people -were  unable to get the drink to which they  were accustomed at a price they could  afford to-pay. Sir James ������Barr,, a  well-known Liverpool doctor,'alsd-.ex-  presses the same opinion, that if the  cost of beer .was reduced much of -the  existing, social unrest would cease.  ���������Mr. Clynes said to a reporter tha^t he  believes a great deal of the dissatisfaction among the workers'��������� to-day ��������� is  due to the high cost of beeij. The fact  that the price of beer has been jkept  so high so long has . undoubtedly  created considerable and deep satisfaction throughout the ranks of the  workers.

TWO REPORTERS LEAVE  LUNCH TO GET MARRIED  KKWKU BARS TO   VISITING   CARS  Conditions governing the entry of  automobiles, motorcycles and bicycles  into Canada for touring purposes are  now more lenient-than ever before as  a result of Customs and Excise. .Under the revised regulations, the tourist may secure permits to.enter the  Dominion with his car or wheel as  often as he desires and if he wishes  to remain beyond the limit of '30  days prescribed, he may do so by Reporting to the nearest collector of  customs to give the required bond  permitting the car to remain,in the  country for an additional five months;  If the tourist complies regularly with  all requirements for either a 24-hour  or 30-day stay, he may come.ias;often,,  as he wishes, the restriction against  the re-entry of the car or wheel Within a period of six "'month's4 Having^eeft  News'will not wait for-anything in  the world���������all personal feelings must  be buried when It comes to the getting of.new stories.r If this "layman"  doesn't believe it, well,- how's this?  Out in Vancouver, B. C, there is a  girl reporter���������age 22. On a contemporary,paper there is a boy reporter  ���������age 23. In the natural course of  political meetings, interviewing of  celebrities, and so on1, they met. Followed a haphazard newspaper romance. All the more haphazard because the girl's family blamed all  such things as bobbed hair,, late  Chinatpwn tea parties, and broadness  .in the matter of acquaintances, on  the "wild" newspaper life.  Last-week the society reporter began making tentative inquiries about  an engagement which might add a  little interest to her columns'. Then  the romance came to light. The marriage had already taken place���������on  July 13. With the exception of two  other men reporters, one of whom  acted as,best man, and the other in  the rush of events taking the plaee  of bridesmaid, no one knew.  The girl was Miss Geraldine Mc-  Geer, sister of the former Liberal  member-for Richmond, G. G.

So  was Mr. Appleby. "The after luncheon  'speeches; were long.and deadly.

Why not get married!  ~ So the speech-makers we're left to  go on with their forever-to-be-un-  chronicled speeches, -and the two  went off, going first to the ��������� court  .house for the license and then to  the'church.

DOLLAR TS AT  DISCOUNT IX CANADA  Montreal.���������The United States dollar is being quoted at a discount    of  one-ruarter of one    per cent.    here.  This is the first time in    seven years  the United States dollar has sold for  less than par here. It is said in financial circles that   on    a    very      large  amount, say $200,000, one-half of one  per cent, .discount will be   demanded  here.   Various reasons are offered as  the cause is discontent, but the    one  which  is mostly, justified, according  to banking officials    and financiers,  Is general prosperity in Canada.    It  was thought that   the   market   had  been engineered and    the American  dollar forced below par, but this    is  refuted by exchange brokers as being  an impossibility owing to the strength,  of the American    banks.      It is also  said the new American,   tariff might  have had something to do    with the  exchange.  $500,000 worth of gold was shipped from :New York last week to the  Canadian Capital  Alex.

Conversion of Bonds  Better Than Expected  Contrary to the expectation of the  Minister of Finance of Canada, who  was of the impression when the Canadian conversion loan was issued  this'fall that.about 50 per 'cent, of  the bonds would be converted, dealers of this province have announced,  that'the privileges of exchanging  bonds' is being indulged in to the extent of approximately 85 per cent: of  the Canadian 1922 Victory Bond  holders. ' , '  There is no indication, however, of  what the American holders will do.  and as there were large blocks ' of  this issue placed on the United,Sta.Les  market, the action of these American  investor's will, have some effect- on  the'final result.   - -   ..  There is outstanding in' Victorys ap  proximately ,$178,000,000. which the  Minister of .Finance has asked be converted into'-1927's and,1932's, taxable bearing 5 1-2 per cent.  Canadian dealers believe that with  exchange at a position* near par there  /would be no object in the American  .market doing other than converting  to tlie.new issue. In a few instances  Washington and Oregon buyers have  already sent in their, bonds, while  United 'States buyers of 1922's "for  conversion purposes are credited- witli  sending up the price of this issue to  1-4 above par.

C  All   Work   Guaranteed  One of the widely read and commented articles  during the past week has been our "Why not Okan-  agari Peaches For Coast Towns." Men have called al  thisoffice to thank us for having called attention to the  matter so forcibly, and hoped that a series of articles  and,opinions would follow along the same lines. The  state of,things complained of are actual facts. Fruits  areibeing imported into Canada, and'British Columbia  in particular, while at the same time our own fruit,  "Grown in B. C." lies rotting on the ground. On Vancou  ver Island pears ar,e being fed to pigs and cattle. While  at the same time the people of the ci ties are yearning  for pears. There are pears rotting in the Fraser Valley,  yet the deal handed out when pears are shipped to Vancouver is not all that is desired on th,e part of the grower.. , There is no way of checking up the price actually  ohKiihed by, the wholesa Ier. A,grower must gef moie  than $1.25 per box for his pears, in order to make  , enough to buy groceries for the winter.  In conversation with one old timer, who has lived in  IhejStates for the greater part of his life, he stated that  lie had heard time without number Americans say that  they would riever permit Canada to   make a dumping  ., gisound of the United States.   Yet American fruit is be-  iing brought into,and sold in B. C. while our own is rotting on the ground.   You can't blame the American for  -finding a market for his produce, but the man who Is  to blame is the wholesaler on Water Street   in Vancouver.   He imports the fruit and sells   it.     Go   into   the  stores of the Fraser Valley   and you will find this fruit  on exhibit for sale, to the detriment of the���������" "Grown   in  B. C." fruit.! Why?     Because the surplus fruit of the  U. % can be shipped in and sold,for a   few   cents   less.  Water Street is looking at the narrow   profits and immediate, results, rather than the prosperity of the province of B. C.   This is on a par with the   business   man  these days who permits his purchaser to   carry around  thousands of dollars in his pocket, paying cash to avoid  fhe stamp tax.   Patriotic too you say! /  The people are taking this matter in tfyeir own hands  and are buying where they can buy. the cheapest, irrespective of where that may be. * Tlie*wholesalers who  sell fruit also sell groceries, and in the opinion of one  man. who called and was very enthusiastic about the  question, evidently having studied it, besides having  had his fingers bitten, thought the merchants of the  Fr;;ser Valley would be perfectly justified in telling the  wholesalers to sell their groceries where they bought  their fruit. His point of view was that the merchants  would do a lot to prevent the wholesaler passing over  the "Grown in B. C." product.  It is a bad state of affairs when the B. C.   market   is  made the dumping ground for inferior fruit while B. C;  fruit lies rotting on   the   ground.     Are   we   patriotic  enough to rise ancl demand that the   wholesalers shall  and must supply us with the B. C. product for our own  consumption?     It   amounts   to this   that   eveiything  possible should be done to help the B. C. producer.   He  is the backbone of the country.    He pays the taxes that  help the nation to pay its obligations.     These   obligations at the present time are heavy. ' Money sent to the  ITnited States for fruit remains in   that country to help  carrvon*   growing richer and   richer   year   by   year.  Don't forget the fact that it is only recently   that Canadian money was at par value; only recently that $500,-  000 was the first shipment of   gold   from   the   United  States to Canada for many years.     We all   had to pay  uV exhorbitant discount,   and   often   have   had our  money hurled back at us as being 'no good.'
