The Land Ad  On and after April 1st, 1913,  the Government will grant preemptions,    not- exceeding .160,  acres, on the following terms:���������  (I.)' The pre-emptor to pay  $2 for recording his pre-emption.  (2.) To enter into occupation  of the land, within sixty days,  and continue to reside upon it for  three years, inclusive of *any  leave of absence which may be  granted him.  (3.) To improve the land to  the extent of $5 per acre, including the clearing and cultivation  of at least five acres.  (4.) At the end-of three years,  and having fulfilled the terms of  improvement and cultivation as  above, the pre-emptor will be entitled to a crown grant on payment of $10.  each year.-  At the end of three years if he  has done little or no clearing, he  can still hold his land, and continue to do so, until some sudden  local development brings about  a high value of property, when  by engaging a number of men at  the right time for a few weeks,  be can clear up and seed down  the required fi veneres, obtain his  crown-grant, sell his land, and  with a large sum of money in his  pocket, seek another chance of  doing the' same thing.   Quite a  good business for-a young man.  There are lots of men-, not agriculturists, whose business (perhaps of   a speculative nature)  would permit them to live for six  months in. each year on a preemption, more especially if that  pre-emption was likely to become  extremely valuable in the course  of, a few years.  According to Mr. Manson, such  a man is to be allowed to hold  160 acres of land indefinitely  .without cultivating it, to the exclusion of the man with bona-  fide intentions of making his living, from the land as soon as  same can be brought under cultivation.  Evidently Mr. Manson's sympathies, like Mr. ��������� Bowser's, are  with the poor unfortunate brow-  beaten speculator.  How would it be to make it unnecessary for the bona-fide agriculturist to leave his land during  the summer months in order to  make his living, by granting him  a cash loan on easy terms, and  so assist him in clearing his land  and bringing it to .state of productiveness?  The government boasts of having money to burn, and eyident-  ly prefers to burn it.  want next year. , Well, some of  them have been kicking pretty  hard lately and something must  be done to bring them into line.

Sometimes he makes his objection stick, but not when he is referred to Hansard as was the  case last Saturday night.  Laurier took fifteen years to  think out a naval policy. Borden  has only had two years in which;  to evolve his policy arid only for  the action of an irresponsible  Senate dominated by Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, Canada would today be  in the proud position of having  contributed handsomely to the  naval defence of the Empire.

What is the meaning of it and  how far does it encourage bona-  fide settlement and cultivation of  the land.?  It has been stated on a local  platform that in the case of the  ordinary man of small means���������  who is compelled to take advantage-of leave of absence during  the summer months in order to  make a living, it is impossible for  him���������at anyrate in such places  as this valley, where the clearing  is particularly heavy���������to clear  and cultivate five acres in three  years,   as the work  cannot be  carried on in the winter time to  any extent.  Mr. Manson, the provincial  member, in explaining this point,  claims that it is not necessary  for the clearing and cultivating  of the said five acres to be effected in the specified three years,  in fact that the required area of  land need not be cleared and cultivated for ten years if the pre-  emptor so desires.  Now, seeing that this comes  from Mr. Manson, it can reasonably; , be taken as the correct  reading, (for is he not frequently correct in his statements,) so  let us accept it as such.  This amendment to the Land  Act then means, that all a man  has to do to hold his pre-emption  is to reside on it six months in  Mr. Manson tells the people to  forget about the road between  the wharf and Hagensborg for  a year or two.  We feel inclined to inform him  that it were well had parts of  this road been forgotten this  year, as it is certainly in a worse  state than last year.  It seems that Mr. Manson  would have the people in the  Upper Valley believe that they  will be given all the money they  From thelook'of consternation  on his otherwise genial" countenance when confronted with the  unquestioned authority of Hansard, occasioned considerable  amusement, but not to be outdone, he asserted defiantly that  he had not read it.  o     o   ., o     o     o  The people of Bella Coola are  in-a quandary.

'"The sensible way," said Sir  James Whitney, Premier of Ontario, to the labor leaders who  interviewed him, "is to let the  government interpret what is  best ior the people and what the  i people want.''  Although . Sir James did not  stop to think of it at the time he  will, we feel sure, when we call  his attention to it, recognize the  fact that in talking that way he  but took the attitude of Pharoah,  of Caesar, of the Grand Caliph,  of the Grand Vizier, of the Czar,  of the Kaiser, of the King.  Mankind has been making its  way through countless generations towards the time when the  world will be managed, not for  the amusement of its masters,  but for the benefit of its inhabitants,  yet in all stages of progress the ruler of the day has  been saying in whatever language  he happened  to  speak:     ''The  sensible way is to run oft' and!  quit bothering me���������1 know bet-!  ter than you do what is for your  good."  But rulers cannot escape being  I bothered. It is by bothering ru-  j that emperors have been reduced  to the status of premiers, subject  | to the risk of defeat at the polls  iif they do not consent to bother  with   the questions that bother  the people.

The story is told of how the  late King Edward once took shelter from a sudden thunderstorm  in a keeper's cottage.  '  When the storm was over and  the King was leaving the cottage  he asked the keeper' what he  would like as a memento of his  visit. The old man said he would  like - one of the King's famous  big cigars. The request was  granted at once. "I shall keep  this till I die, and smoke it then,''  said the old mart.  This actually came to pass. A  few years later the old keeper  became bedridden, and instinctively knew that his end was  near. He told his son to bring  him "the King's cigar" out of  the box where rhe had always  treasured it, and to light it for  him. Then, propped up on the  pillows, he puffed away with  great satisfaction and a smile on  his face. Before he had finished  it he fell back and died.  A Dreary Outlook  The opinion of an old-timer,  who very possibly was in former  years a supporter of the McBride  government, is not very flattering to the conditions which at  present exist in/this province.  On account of the arbitrary and  dishonest methods of the administration he says all we can see  here just now is: For the work-  ingman���������the jail; for the business man���������an overdraft; for the  consumer���������higher prices; forthe  banks���������the country; for everybody���������hard times. -  |        HUGHES BROS.  ������ BTG liquor store  ������ Wines, Liquers and Cigars  X WE    SHIP    EVERYWHERE  *n  .  ���������   ������\& Send  for free price list  with  shipping   inntrurtiom  & 105 Hastings Street East, Vancouver, B.C.  ADVERTISE IN THE "COURIER"  One of the advantages of Sir  Richard McBride's proposed international Coast railway, we are  told by 'Canada,'a London publication which professes to represent the opinion of this country,  will be that Pooley's canon in the  Yukon will be brought much  nearer to civilization. Would it  not be much more to the advantage of the province if Sir Richard would bring the undeveloped  fertile lands of British Columoia  nearer to civilization by a policy  of honest and economical road  building?
