A Review  :'It has,been the constant boast  of the McBride government, that  having taken over the reigns of  office at a time when the administration was'without funds" and  in debt,' to haye lifted the province to ar state of affluence and  prosperity unparalleled ..in" the.  Dominion of Canada.'. ��������� '  How this "has been brought  about, and whether this boast is  in any way justified, are questions that warrant the earnest  consideration of" every honest  voter in the province.  Ho ..was the provincial debt  liquidated and the huge surplus  acquired?  The government during their  ten years of power have sold over  two million acres of crown lands:  hundreds of miles of timber limits; practically all the coal areas  that were in any way accessable  by rail or water, and vast mineral  deposits,   to  whoever  would  buy. "    .*  The debt was liquidated and  the surplus accumulated by the  sale of our resources, until today  we have practically no land available for settlement until the railway lines have been extended  into new districts.  o     c     o     o     o  It is not long since Attorney-  General Bowser made the statement that until these railways  were built the government could  not encourage settlement; at the  same time it has been amply demonstrated that the only railways that meet with the approval of the government, to the  extent oi warranting official as-  sitance, are those which paralle  existing lines and terminate at  Vancouver, so exemplifying the  Tory principle of centralization,  the cause of unhealthy inflation  of real estate values and the  temporary booming of the thickly settled districts.  At the beginning of this financial year it was proclaimed that  there was a surplus of $7,000,000  in the provincial treasury.  Be this as it may, the fact remains that with the estimated  expenditure exceeding the revenue by $7,000,000, by the end  of the year the government will  be without money in hand.  , o     o     o     o     o  The question then naturally  arises���������what have we in return  for the sale of our resources ?  Have we ordinary facilities in  the form of roads, Urielges and  railroads, which alone can open  up the country for settlement,  and so create an available wealth  which would be an adequate return for the sale of those resources? There is no denying  the fact that we have not.  Has our agricultural land been  disposed" of in such a way as to  encourage settlement. Again  no. All the agricultural land  within reach of transportation is  held by speculators, who are demanding prohibitive prices.

Considered  on  this basis we think that the legitimacy of this railroad is very  imuch enhanced by the fact that  come.

In many outlying arid sparsely populated districts,' a large  portion of the people depend; to  a great degree, upon the money  from the road work' f or * their  living, and such being the case,  there is generally a tacit understanding with the government  official in charge of such work,  that they shall vote for a continuance of such a benevolent  administration.  We have parted with our beri  tage, and have recklessly squandered what we received in return,  arid as matters stand at present,  we are worse off than before the  ascession to .power of the McBride government, inasmuch as  while we have no money, we are  or some one of the staff oi' the  Fort George Tribune indulges in  some very loose journalism at the  expense.of the Bella Coola railway, and while the Courier holds  no brief for the Pacific & Hudson  Bay (or any other) Railway Company, yet we feel that were the  "Tribune" better informed it  would perhaps hesitate before  indulging in the wild statements  referred to.  The '.'Tribune" quotes a letter  from    the    president   of, the  railway to the owners of theWil-  low  River Townsite,  and comments thereon in a manner that  at least savors   of  inaccuracy.  Whilst knowing nothing as to  the arrangements that exist between. Mr. Verschoyle and the  said townsite people,, there are  one or two mistakes out of the  many that occur in the article  that we would like to set right.  ��������� The mainline of the Pacific &  Hudson Bay''is about 1600 miles  and not 7Q0 as mentioned.    The  distance from Bella Coola to the  junction  point of the  "Grand  Trunk Pacific" is about 300 miles  and not 700 as stated and could  easily be completed by the end  of .1914, as the work could be at:  tacked in four different places,  and is therefore a feat that could  easily, be done either on paper or  in fact. ~, The branch line from'  this junction   to' Willow  River  runs through very^easy country  and could be attacked in twenty  different   places,   if   necessary  whilst the mainline was under  construction, it could therefore  be finished easily within the time,  stated.'  The officers, backers, and promoters of 'the Pacific & Hudson  Bay Company, both in this country arid in Europe, are well known  to the Government and were  duly investigated by them before  this railway was 'placed on the  revised list when applications for  subsidy were being considered.  The legitimacy of a railroad  enterprise does not  altogether  promoters of the road, and here  in we opine is the-true cause of  the "Tribune" stooping to print  such inaccurate stuff as in the  article referred to.

Mr. Borden as leader of the  opposition was loud in his condemnation of the Liberal party  for spending during their last  year in office the sum of $122,-  000,000, which he described as  "prima facie evidence of improper and corrupt expenditure."  This year the Borden government is spending $251,000,000,  more than twice as much, yet  Conservatives' say this is distinctly comme il faut.  The people of this-province are  simply robbed of their rightful  belongings by unscrupulous politicians. The prevailing conditions demand that every right  thinking voter, whether Liberal  or Conservative, should rise in  an endeavor to save what remains of our onetime abundant  natural resources. This can only  be accomplished by bringing  about a change of government.  Sir Richard McBride should  lead Agricultural Commissioner  Hayward aside and point out  that the expenses of his own  European tour at the time of  King George's coronation must  not be considered a precedent.  This is a rich country, but it  could not survive many excursions on the magnificent scale of  the Premier's trip of two years  ago.  /       d ' .0 \ o     c     o  "Eat, drink and be merry, for  tomorrow we die!

EUROPEAN   PLAN   Hot and Couo Water  $1.00 TO  ������2.50      STEAM   HEATED  Highest in the World  Canada is spending a pile of  money annually, and Canada gets  it to spend by means of tariff  taxation. The taxes we pay on  the goods we buy produces nearly all the national revenues.  The estimates for the year call  for the expenditure by the Federal Government of $26 for each  man, woman and child in Canada.   This revenue must be raised.  We are taxed more per head j  than   the  people  of   any  other  country, and largely the tax is  an indirect one levied on the cost  of living:  In the United States the budget shows an expenditure of $9  per head.    In Britain it comes to  about $18,   in   Germany   about  $10.50, in France about $23.   The  per capita expenditure seems to  be greater in Australia than in  , Canada, but such is not the case,  as  heavy   expenditures   on   the  national   railway  are offset  by  equally   heavy   revenues    from  these services.  I    The cost of living ought to be  ' reduced by taking taxes off food.  -Toronto Star.
