Many men that have done  yeoman service to the Bowser  political party in British Columbia, at the expense of the taxpayers and incidentlyto themselves, are being discarded by  the Brewster government.    It  ��������� has now come to be activity, competence and service that is re-  , quired, the public demands that  their work must be looked, after  and the person that does not  come up to the mark or w{ith a  shady record must go.'  The Hon.,John Oliver has rid  his department of F. C. Gamble  and also H. A. Icke. Mr. Gamble  was the railway engineer who  was supposed to look after the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway,  and, as is now known, millions  of the public funds went to the  railway millionaires without any  check at all.    In  fact the late  minister, Hon. Thomas Taylor,  did not know how his department was run and at the enquiry  by a committee of the legislature  last session Mr. Taylor professed  absolute ignorance of details of  the whole work.    Mr. Icke was  the engineer  in  charge of the  improvements to the Sor.ghees  Reserve, for which Mr. Matson  ' pulleii down $75,000 as commission for buying the land from  the Indians, in fact the taxpayers paid $105,000 in commissions  for the buying only. Since then  thousands of dollars have-been  spent by Mr. Icke, under the direction of the Bowser government, and nothing to show for  itoutsideof keepingafew voters  . in line.  The Hon. John must be com*  , mended for getting rid of worth-  leas employees' of the public.  The minister of public works can  well afford to follow the example  ��������� of the minister of railways, by  forthwith discharging a few road  bosses that are still on the job.  These men built no roads for the  Conservative government and  they are not likely to improve  in roadbuilding under the Liberal government, therefore we say  , the incompetent and unfaithful  must go. In this as in other  matters delay is dangerous and  the sooner the 'government act  the better if will be for themselves, and also, the public.  O       O   ���������   O       O       O '  Be Content and Pay?  The .Toronto, Daily News, in  which Sir Joseph Flavelle is understood to have been heavily  interested, and which as every-  mm  one knows, is one of the principal organs of the Borden government, had an article' recently on  the virtue and patriotism of being content and paying the high  prices without complaint as a  willing sacrifice to the common  cause. But evidently it did not  mean that the profiteers should  share in the willing sacrifice to  the common cause as the company headed by Sir Joseph Flavelle, one of the principal sup7  porters of the Borden government, made a profit of live million  dollars on bacon alone last year.  This is shown in the report recently made by the commissioner on the high cost of living.  The public feel no doubt that  other friends of the government  have been enabled by its protection to force the people to make  proportionate wartime sacrifices.  The government has not gained  by these things the good will of  the people. The government  has delivered the public over to  the profiteers, and it will have  a hard time explaining that it  did so to help win the war or because it felt that the people  should all make some sacrifice in  war time.  0    o     o     o     o  The Jobseeking Politician  Gets a Shock.  The jobseeking politician  of  Vancouver had a rude awakening when the Brewster government appointed the new auditpr-  -general from outside the province. Last session provision was  made for an auditor-general as,  heretofore, there had  been no  check on the public business of  the province.   Most men in the  service had'a chequebook, the  road boss and all; even a book  was   printed   and   supplied   to  wharfingers., ^This is something; ones in the cities,  that has not been explained how  it was that wharfingers had to  use official cheques of the province.

This is in effect an official  abandonment of the offensive,  for it must be accepted that this  expert is speaking of matters  within the knowledge of the  Teuton command and tacitly, at  least, recognized at this time in  Germany. The admission is of  the greatest importance from a  military viewpoint, particularly  from the German side.  -Such a confession as Major-  General Moraht here makes is a  complete reversal of Teuton  military methods. All Germany's  wars, at least all modern Germany's wars, have been won by  the offensive, and by the offensive in overwhelming force. The  Austrian defeats in the war of  1866 and the French collapse in  the Franco Prussian war were  brought about by this system.  it was counted upon to win the  present war and when the enormous number of troops poured  into Belgium and France in August and September, 1914, are considered the German plan of campaign is clearly reveajed.

The Commercial Economy Board  of the Board of national Defense,  the organization that is doing so  much to put the United States  on a'sound war footing, has of  recent dale sent out letters to  the' large retail trade urging the  necessity of the curtailment of  the delivery system at present  in vogue, both as a matter of  economy and as a means of releasing for the public service  many men who are employed in  maintaining needles delivery.  The idea is not to entirely do  away with the delivery service  of stores, but merely to see, that  this service is kept within the  narrowest bounds of actual ne-  cassity. in this way it is believed  that the heavy delivery costs,  that amount on the average to 3  per cent of the gross sales, can  be materially lessened, without  in any way affecting the service  by the stores.  , Noone hates a German because  he is a German but everyone,  even the Germans; hate the Prus-  sionized Germans for what they  1 i  have done.

Many  men  that have  done  yeoman service to the Bowser  political party in British Columbia, at the expense of the taxpayers and incidently to themselves, are being discarded by  , the Brewster  government.    It  has now come to be activity, competence and service that is re-  '   quired, the publicdemands that  their work must be looked after  and the person that does hot  come up to the mark or with a  shady record must go.  The Hon. John Oliver has rid  his department of F. C. Gamble  and also H.' A. Icke. Mr. Gamble  was the railway engineer who  was supposed to look after the  Pacific Great Eastern  Railway,  and, as is now known, millions  of the public funds went to the  railway millionaires without any  check at all.   In fact the late  minister, Hon. Thomas Taylor,  did not know how his, department was run and attheenquiry  by a committee of the legislature  last session Mr. Taylor professed  absolute ignorance of details of  -...the .whole work.   Mr. Icke was  the engineer in  charge of the  improvements to the Songhees  Reserve, for which Mr. Matson  pulled down'$75,000 as commission for buying the land from  the Indians, in fact the taxpayers paid $105,000 in commissions  -   for the buying only.    Since then  thojsands ot* dollars have-been  spent by Mr. Icke, under the direction of the Bowser government, and nothing to show for  itout-ideof keepingafew voters  . in line.  The Hon. John muat be com*  mended for getting rid of worthless employees of the public.  The minister of public works can  well afford to follow the example  of the minister of railways, by  forthwith discharging a few road  bosses that are still.on the,job.  These men built noroadsfor the  Conservative government and  . they are not likely to improve  in roadbuilding under the Liberal government, therefore we say  the incompetent and unfaithful  must ,go. In this as in other  matters delay is dangerous and  the sooner the ���������government act  the better it'will be for themselves, and also the public.  .   O      O      O      O      O ���������  Be Content and Pay?  The Toronto Daily News, in  which Sir Joseph Flavelle isj'un-  derstood to have been heavily  interested, and which as every-'  ope knows,'is one of the principal organs of the Borden government, had an articlerecently on  the virtue and patriotism of be-  ing content and paying the high j  prices without complaint as a'  willing sacrifice to the common  cause. But evidently it did not  mean that the profiteers should  share in the willing sacrifice to  the common cause as the company headed by Sir Joseph Flavelle, one of the principal supporters of the Borden government, made a profit of five million  dollars on bacon alone last year.  This is shown in the report recently made by the commissioner on the high cost of living.

It was counted upon to win the  present war and when the enormous number of troops poured  into Belgium and France in August and September, 1914, are considered the German plan of campaign .is clearly revealed. It  was the elder Moltke who evolved  the swift, sudden, overwhelming  blow as the ideal Teuton strategy.  ���������Even'to the obsessed German  mind   there   must   come   the  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

Nurseries at Sardls.  Mean Business.  Th. Commercial Economy Board  of the Board of national Defense,  the organization that,is doing so  much to put the United States  on a sound war footing, has of  recent date sent out letters to  the large retail trade urging the  necessity' of the curtailment of  the delivery system at present  ��������� in vogue, both as a, matter of  economy and as a means of releasing for the public service  many men who are employed in  maintaining needles delivery.  The idea is not to entirely do  away \yith the delivery service  of stores, but merely to see that  this service is kept within the  narrowest bounds of actual ne-  C333ity. In this way it is believed  that the heavy delivery costs,  that amount on the average to 3  per cent of. the gross sales, can  her materially lessened, without  in any way affecting the service  by the stores.  No one hates a German because  he is a German but everyone,  even the Germans; hate the Prus-  sionized Germans for what they  have done. There are also some  things to" despise. It is a duty  to hate the cynicism which tears  up solemnly made treaties and  then ravages peaceful lands witl.  out warrant or excuse, which  burns cathedrals- and libraries,  massacres old men and women,  murders babes of neutral nations  and systematically submits young  girls to a fate worse than death.

The Steel Harvest Sown in Verdun  Battlefield.  0  "Pr omethus,'' the organ of the  German iron trade, makes an  elaborate calculation as to the  quantity of steel which is now  lying on the hill sides around  Verdun. According to military  reports, it often happened that  as many as one million shots  daily were fired-from guns of  various calibres. If, however,  one million shells are taken as  the weekly instead of the daily  average, .we reach almost incredible totals. Taking the ground  fought over as 260 square kilometres, and the average weight  of shells as 90 lbs., no less than  1,350,000 tons of steel exploded  on the area in question.  This weight is sufficient to .load  135,000 heavy goods wagons, and  works out at thirteen tons-of  steel per acre. Taking the price  of scrap steel at $17.50 per ton,  we have a crop of steel worth  about $225 per acre, a crop which  "Promethus" thinks is well  worth garnering.  The military critic of the Vos  sicheZeitung, Captain von Salz  mann, says that the Americar,  troops will never attain the standard of the, Germans. This it  rather a neat compliment from  an unexpected source.  A man robs himself if he does'  not make the best use of his time  The most effective way to get  rid of this war is to help to win it.

Count Zeppelin, attended by a committee of cherubs, is  being welcomed by St. Peter,  who made him a laudatory address, informing him that lie has  been given one of the finest locations.

War for  them was a sordi'd- business,  shorn of all romance; it was  merely a scientific'burglary by a  very large gang.  It seemed to him that reliance  on the law of progress, on socialism, ��������� democracy, common sense  and industry, or on organized  religion, to prevent a recurrence  of what was happening, was in'  each case alike futile; they would  fail again as they had failednow.  He knew that this war was  forced upon us, but he did not  think we had a right to assume  that we and our present allies  could never be guilty of breaking the peace at some future  time���������our past record was not  clean enough for that.

Bella  Coola   farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  .'���������..'-.*���������������������������-���������������������������������������������:  View of a ranch in Bella Coola Valley.  THE REASONS for this enviable condition of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coofa Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  OELLA COOLA and the surrounding  *~* country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  __=>ii_  <ii.  ^a_._^H. .. -_  ._r. .jiJU- ������->���������  .!...
