The two indians, Moses Paul  and" Paul Spintlam, also wanted  for;: murder, gave the various  po3Bes such' ah w interesting' time,  that all efforts to capture' them  have been-abandoned, and they  are:free to pose as living monu-  "mehts, advertising to their dusky  brethren, the inefficiency of the  department of justice.  Somewhere in the foot-hills of  the Coast Range, lurks' a white  -man, who fatally shot a relative.  This happened-in the .heart of  civilization.  According to reports Gun-a-  noot has recently visited the  camp of white men in- the far  north.  Moses Paul, disguised as a  klootchman attended the annual  fair in his native town. So much  for his fear of the strong arm of  the law.  .True, the country is mountainous, and few white men care to  follow a murderer into the mountain fastnesses. But should not  thi3 fact be an additional reason  making obvious the need of a'  well organized and thoroughly  equipped force of police.  Do we want to be known abroad  as. a people who tolerate law  breaking"? . Yet the fair name  of British Columbia is already besmirched in this respect, and the  . responsibility for this must rest  with the Attorney-General alone.  The jails of thei province are  inadequate, so the women sen-  ful as to be able to swerve Mr.  Bowser's department from the  straight and narrow path?  ',;One would like to fancy the  McBride ' ministers ' too anxious  for the safety of the Empire to  give their attention to the administrative business, but that  is hardly possible. Left to themselves the well oiled wheels -of  the departments would run without a hitch,-and no departmental  head, police, magistrate, crown  counsel.'of' jail warden ; would  dare to set .so .unconstitutional-a  precedent as" to , interfere with  the course of justice .and public  order." ���������      , -   -  "It is a welL established fact  that, the   provincial   police   in  British Columbia has been of late  years .absolutely demoralized' by  'the<appointment of officers, who  have every qualification for'their  jobs, except the" necessary ones,  and :it is for' this reason that  there are more known homicides  in\ that, province than in all the  others put together, despite,the  'the^organizedrnanhunt^in which  they have engaged from, time to  time.   -It' will.' be, remembered  ai'at'old'Bill Miner was picked up  ,by the mounted- police^ although  they were in a strange country,  and-that almost."every important  arrest has been'nnade as the results of the efforts of municipal  police   or   private   detective  agencies:"      '  - How long- is this condition of  things to continue unremedied? o  ���������Bella Coola has a provincial  constable, capable,as he is popular. The only, constable within  ������ ,radius of. 250 miles, and without a hprse he is responsible for  the lives and  property of the  British Columbia and the Pacific  Ocean.      .        c  Sundry .interested parties have  endeavored to show that our West  Indian possessions are no longer  of the commercial importance  that they - fprmerly were; and  further, that their geographical  position would naturally make  them tributary, to the United  States.      . *' ' r      '        r  , There is^ no* doubt that the latter country would like to see the  exchange effected, forjhe portion  of Alaskan territory in .question  is of no very great value to her,  while any of the'West Indian  Islands, would be an undoubted  acquisition.- '  In, view, however, of the approaching completion of the  Panama Canal, our West. Indian"  possessions-appear in a new ',asr  pect.;, *'... -\ff ,- / - 'v ''^'/",",  r Once ^ the canah is completed,"  these islands become of very  great strategical importance;'ex-,  tending as they do from the Ba-.  hamas on the north to Trinidad  ., Having jn view the immense  saving in distance of ocean routes  that the .canal will afford, it is  obvious that this route would become ,of vast importance in the  event of war breaking out between any of the great maritine  powers.  The control, therefore, of the  West Indian Islands, by any power  means, as a consequence, the control of ingress and egress to and  from the canal.  It is clear then that' the British  Empire, being as.it its, an essentially maritine power, must at all  costs maintain her hold upon any  and all, possessions, which conduce to the control of- this important ocean> thoroughfare:  We, in British Columbia, are  vitally interested in this question,  exposed as we are to attack from  the Pacific, and at the same time  separated, by such an immense  distance, from the great centre  of our naval power.  1  Even although a portion of our  province, may be shut out from  direct access to the shores of .the  P^cinc;'-we- should be far/sighted  enough, and sufficiently patriotic,  to, accept a. partial disadvantage  to* ourselves, for the good of- the  Empire as a whole.
