Bfwas (  fffr Pattullo Scores the  \ McBride Government  , The following speech  by Mr.  1T. D. Pattullo, Liberal candidate  for tfte Provincial Legislature,  delivered at a meeting held  at^rince Rupert, November 5:  |( Mr> pattullo   in   opening hi?  fspeech referred to theparticular  "dutiesdevolving upon the Dom-  .iaionand Provincial governments  \tthis time, also the' necessity  0feach and every individual do,  jnghispartin whatever capacity.  While the supreme duty of the  'Dominion government was the  prosecution of the war, coincident therewith careful thought  Biust be given to economic conditions in order to safeguard both  s|e immediate and the distant  feature.   In this regard upon the  Provincial government as well as  Dominion  rests   heavy responsibility.  ; The legislature   at  Victoria  pissed a-vote of $80,000 to two  favorites of the government for  no adequate services rendered.  The fact that the legislature pos-  Jj-sessdthe power of,giving that  **.. - y   - - **  IstethtfvaHditjrof haw^did not  ffgiwitthe validity either of right  Jrof.morality." No-doubt the  iPrime Minister of the Province  p would tell us that he was strictly  conforming to the "Golden Rule"  in making this grant, namely  I'Jhat he was doing unto others as  he would have them do to him.  The government at Victoria  f had lost even a semblance of a  ^proper perspective of the fitness  |'0f things. So long had it been  | engaged in debauching the elec-  | torate through public works and  .-jobs and promises of public works  f.and jobs that it had itself be-  l come callous just as criminals in  | long practice become callous.  The power to do certain things  did not necessarily make right or  wise the doing of them. In fact  |;- to do them might be grossly im-  H moral.  He had no sympathy  for or  commendation of the spectacular  I. Wion of the Prime Minister of  fte Province in  buying subma-  [ fines at a highly fictitious values  for the protection of our coasts;  11 was a direct implication that  tl>e Ottawa   government   was  -derelict in its duty, and a slap  t0������atthe British Admiralty.  The speaker had no respect for  afnanwho would wrap himself  UP m the old (lag with loud aerations   of   patriotic   senti-  pts, while at that very moment  c was despoiling the people both  their money and''the natural  purees of the province,  i believe," said Mr. Pattullo,  "at all grafters in war  time  sm   (u������ be shot' but * am not  ah h       they are deserving o"f  Ifterfate in time of peace."  on ���������       Kovei"nment instead of  '  ���������8 submarines and dealing  "������ matters outide its jurisdie-  I        had done well  the things  Continued  W  Bulgarians Attack  French Positions  First British Blood Spilled on the  New Front  Saloniki,   Nov.   -1,   via   Pari*,  Nov. <J.

The   French  then  formed a junction with the Serbians at Phares, completing an  unbroken   line   from   Perlipe,  Gradsko and Krivolak to Borolo-  bo on the Bulgarian frontier.   A  second Bulgarian expedition ascending the Treka valley and the  Tetovo road to Uskup, was checked and thrown back on Saturday  with heavy losses.

J!  5i7,  The crowd that assembled at  the Mackenzie schoolhouse on the  evening of Friday last week,to  listen to Mr. H. S. Clements,  M. P., report on his work as the  Federal representative of the  Comox-Atlin district was as large  as the house could well accommodate.  A few minutes after eight Mr.  S. Le C. Grant, president of the  local Conservative club, called  the meeting to order with" a few  remarks eulogistic of the member present, who, he said, was a  man who kept his promises.  The popular member on ascending the platform was greeted by hearty applause.  He began by regretting that  he had been unable to visit Bella  Coola as often as he would have  liked, but owing to the size of  his district, which was the largest and most difficult to traverse  in Canada, he had been unable  to do so. Of the time not spent  attending the sessions of parliament he had used three-fourths  in travelling, looking after the  needs of his district. He then-  spoke of his successful efforts in  securing a telgraph line to Bella  Coola, in reducing the rates foi  telegraph messages, and improving the mail service. He justly  prided himself that he had not  used his position to oust capable  officials on account of their politics.  He then paid a tribute to the  honesty and ability of Premier  Borden, who had tried to keep  every pre-election pledge which  he had made. He scored the  Liberal Dominion Senate for voting down the appropriation of  $35,000,000 for three dreadnoughts, and said it made him  ashamed that he was a Canadian;  as there never had been as much  as a copper voted for the protection of the Empire.  He criticized the legacies left  by the Liberal government; one  of which was the boundary line  of Manitoba and Quebec.  The Canadian Northern Railway subsidies had proven not  sufficient to complete the road.  The Borden government had, upon the urgent solicitations of the  promoters, loaned the company  $45,000,000, and in security the  government now holds almost a  majority of its stock. He predicted that this road would in  time prove on of the most valuable assets to Canada.  Then the Liberal party's policy  towards the Grand Trunk Pacific  received its share of criticism.  The line east of Winnipeg was a  mistake and should not have  been built. The cost was excessive, and $40,000,000 had been  grafted in the construction. The  Liberal government had promised  that the road would cost only  $13,000,000, while he declared it  would cost over three hundred  million dollars.  Upon his election to office he  found the. Comox-Atlin district  the most neglected in the Dominion. This neglect extended to  every department of the service.  By his persistent efforts since he  began to look after its interests  the Dominion government had  spent $1,500,000 in the district.  He made special mention of the  value of the fishing industry,  which represented an asset of  $15,000,000. He had seen to it  that the natural spawning  grounds of the salmon had been  cleaned up and taken care of.  He believed this part of the work  of greater importance than the  operation,of hatcheries. '  He regretted that war conditions made it impossible at present to appropriate sums for many  public works, but knew the people  were reasonable and would pot  require it under the circumstanr  ces.  ' In spite of a sympathetic and  very friendly audience'it seemed  significant he was unable to elicit  any applause to that part of the  speecn in which he. paid a high  tribute to the Conservative candidate for this district and pleaded for his election.  He then spoke of Canada's contribution in men and money to  the war, and the need of providing for the crippled soldiers.  He minimized the graft in the  purchase of supplies for war and  stated that only $6000 had been  misappropriated in the expenditure of $50,000,000 for war purposes.  He mentioned his share in the  organization of a regiment of  soldiers to be known as the Comox-Atlin regiment, and promised to send a recruiting officer  here if needed.  He closed by assuring his  hearers that he should always  take an active interest in the welfare of the district and as long  as he remained a member of the  parliament would look after its  needs.  Rev. W. H. Gibson then made  an ardent appeal to the young  men to join the colors.  Before closing by the singing  of the National Anthem, the  meeting expressed its appreciation of Mr. Clements services as  Federal representative by a rising vote of thanks.

Her people have been the foremost in spreading the gospel  throughout the heathen lands.  Our highly educated and enlightened critics know as well as  we do that the spirit of Germany  is of an entirely different nature.  Her great "armaments have not  been accumulated for purposes  of defense, because it was not in  the interest of Europe as a whole  to have Germany weakened in  any way. ��������� Her armaments were  for aggressive warfare wherever  and whenever her purposes of  aggrandisement were opposed by  her neighbors either singly or in  combination.     Her treatment of  the people in her conquered territories or. colonial' possessions  has shown an entirely different  spirit from that of the British.  She has always been rigid' and  cruel in enforcing her. exacting  and obnoxious rules. ��������� Such people,  have,- therefore,   never  become  reconciled to her rule.    And last  andjiot least her conduct in this  .war has shown a cruelty before  unknown  in   civilised  warfare.  The spirit of Britain and Germany  are of an entirely different kind  and we are glad," that in this war,  our "side is the one that displays  thespirit which we believe shall  conquer the world and usher in  that better day for which we are  longing.

People.who flatter themselves  of being more^broad-minded than  the average mortals, try to assume that there is not much dif-  f erence * between the forces op-  posed to each other on the battle-  fields of Europe.     They claim  they are all controlled by a great  desire for power, and as this is a  .   sinful jiesire they are all wrong.  .   With an air of superior knowledge they scoff-at the assertion  ,   that honor demanded and self-  ���������   preservation dictated   that the  western allies, Great Britain and  France, took up arms.  If, on one hand, jthe claim is  made that this war be fought  until the militarism as accentu-  . ated   by   Germany   be   forever  crushed;   they   again  maintain  ' that Germany had as much right  to amass armaments on land as  Britain to maintain  a superioi  ' navy. * ' . _  It was natural-for Britain in  . her insular position to develop a  strong navy; and we, while being  no military experts, maintain  that Britain's powerful navy was  not a>menace to the development 6f liberty and independence,  and commerce of any of the European nations. Britain's strength  was riot of a.nature that she  could'successfully attack her  powerful neighbors. She was all  the time wholly unprepared for  war on land. Her navy was  simply maintained for the purpose of -defending herself and  'her possessions. There are. no  indications that she had any  sinister designs on any of her  neighbors. No one of them need  have any fear of agression on her  V ...  part. Her influence has always  been for peace. Her fleet has  policed the sea against pirates  and slavetraders. She has been  the protector of the smaller  European nations. Her rule in  all her possessions over the sea  and expel him, from office.-  Our Dominion government, at  the demand of the opposition in  parliament, appointed a commission to investigate the charges  of fraud in connection with the  purchase of material for war  purposes.  This commission has found  ample material for investigation  and many scandals have been  unearthed; this*is well and good  as far as it goes, and we hope  and believe that the Borden gov-  ernment will prosecute all those  who have made themselves criminally liable.    -' . ���������  But what puzzles us is why in  so many cases it should be'found  necessary to have a special commission to' discover the frauds.  There are officials, in largejium-  bers who^have something to do  with every transaction'involving  the payment of money from the  public treasury.  Every bill is scrutinized and  vouchers required as proof of its  genuineness, and any ordinary  intelligent being who attended  to the /duties of passing on the  ! tracts commission held at Regina,  Saskatchewan. We omit the discovery of forged freight bills of  feed and hay never bought, as  frauds of that kind would, under  normal circumstances, be somewhat obscure and not easy to  detect. But in passing upon the  accounts of the feed bought,  feed used and feed on hand anyone, not an utter imbecile, must  have seen the foolishness and  the fraudulency of the account-  ing:  "Records showed that for the  week ending March 14 the stock  of feed on hand was nil; .during  the week 234 tons were purchased;  over 7000 feeds were given the  horses mobilized during t-hat  week and at the close of the  week ten tons^remained; the next  week's report showed on hand  March 21, ten tons; purchased  during the week, a little over  four tons; left at the end,of the  week after the usual feeding, 5G  tons.- The week ended March  28, opened with 31 tons, nine  tons were purchased during the  week, and after the usual feeds,  41 tons" remained.  "Sir Charles Davidson asked  thewitriess Mackintosh whether  he would characterize these reports" as. absurd or fraudulent,  witness replying absurd and impossible."  .��������� \  Foolish, Dishonest or  Negligent.  While we are" conducting a  newspaper supporting .the Lib-  eraf party;' we- have-been under  the impression that in spite of  the so called war scandals the  Conservative Dominion government was nearly, if not fully, as  clean as any other government.  We have held that as long as  human nature is frail the best  government, the' best political  party will find "that fraudulent  persons will find their way into  office and commit dishonest acts.  But the difference between a  corrupt party and an honest party  would be found in its attitude  towards the dishonest official.  One party will ignore or "white-' ^uote from the Vancouver News-  .vash" the offence, while the. Advertiser's report of the second  jther will punish the offender sitting of the Davidson war con-  Sir Charles Tupper Is Dead.  Sir CharlesTupper������ the greatest of Canadians, has past away  in his 95th year. He died at  Bexley Heath, England, .October 30.

Itdoes  not seem uncharitable to conclude that these many officials,  who certainly must have become  aware of the at least suspicious  character of the claims, were all  tainted with- dishonesty for allowing them to be paid.  To illustrate, that there must  be something very near collusion  between these officials, we will  be known in Canadian history as  one of her best. :.

"One guarantee," said  Mr. Pattullo, '"that they will do  better is: 'that they could not  possibly do worse.' Another is  that the time is opportune.

"In the matter of timber we  have some of the finest in the  world, yet for years the lumbei  trade lias languished."  'i'be Liberal party favors s  policy of timber for actual user?  r������nly. At the present time then  ire large areas held for speculative purposes which cannot be  nade use of for years. Manj  u-eas of timber also are helc  ���������vhich could not properly bt  classed as timber limits' because  they can never be logged upon e  large scale. These should be  thrown open to handloggers.  "A carefully conceived plan of  community settlement must  b<  worked  out  so that  instead of  settlers   being   scattered   as   at  present thus rendering the main-  tainance of roads, schools, mail  delivery, etc, impossible, all these  facilities may be afforded."  The Liberal platform provides  i.,     ,  jior loans to settlers upon easy  | terms, but there are other considerations also which enter into  j the problen, and all these thing?  I must be taken into account.  | "Encouragement should be  given to the mining and fishing  industries.  "Unjust licenses must be removed. Fish license, gun license,  loggers license, trappers license,  and so on. Some men do a little  of all these things each year se  that one can imagine what a  burden it is.  "The paramount duty before  us is the development of our resources and industries and it  this the government must take  a prominent part."  Mr. Pattullo also referred to  the Liberal policy in the operation of coal mines, enactment of  Workmen's Compsensation Act,  Women's Suffrage, Civil Service  j Reforms,   Public  Ownership  of  j Public Utilities, and concluding  |Mr. Pattullo said:  !

It started  at 7 p. m. with the band of the  10th Battalion playing the opening piece.     There  was  a  very  good pianist and violinist present, so we were  well  supplied  with good music, and were also  favored with a large number of  songs and  recitations, most of  which    were    simply   splendid.  Over a hundred of us went into  a' town  this   afternoon,   where  there was a lovely-large building  with a swimming tank in it, and  most of us piled in and had a jolly  good time.
