C. Henniger and  Dr. MacLean���������Telegram From Premier Oliver  Clarifies the Government's Attitude on the Irrigation Project in This Valley-Liberal Candidate's  Maiden Speech, Three-quarters of an Hour in  Length, Is Generally Gommended  offers from  A crowded ' house greeted -the  speakers at the big Liberal meeting  in tbe Empress theatre on Wednesday evening. Considerable enthusiasm wag manifested, and the speakers were heartily applauded when  ever they made a telling point in  the course of their remarks. Mr.  Henniger, Liberal candida'e for this  riding, in his maiden political  speech to a Grand Forks audience,  - spq-fe for three-quarters of an hour,  and the able manner in which he  handled local'and provincial issues  was an agreeable surprise to his  friends and supporters.  R. Campbell, president of the  Grand Forks Liberal, association,  presided and paesented the speakers  with brief remarks. In introducing  Mr, Henniger he took occasion to  draw the attention of the audience  to the part tb^tf-wndidate had taken  in Securing High school quarters in  this city. The political-opponents of  Mr. Henniger, said Mr. Campbell,  might make light of this event, by  saying that Mr. Henniger had merely grasped an opportunity. But the  Conservative candidate in this * campaign had had the same opportunity  and-he bad failed to gracp it.  E. G. Henniger  *  Mr. Henniger stated that as the  was;hiB first appearance.on a public  platform, the remarks' which he  would make might not be connected  in the orthodox fashion, but be  hoped the audience would follow  him to the end and endeavor to "arrive at the true meaning of what he  had to say. He was pleased to see  . so many ladies present, as he expected that a large number of them  would vote for them.  The speaker discussed the vote on  the prohibition plebiscite. He felt cer  tain that an act for government control would be framed that would be  satisfactory both to the moderation-  ist8<and the temperance people,  and if elected he would support  such a measure.'. The charge had  been! made, he said, that no attempt  had been made by the government  to enforce <the. present temperance  act. He.'quoted statistics of arrests  and convictions under the act to  shjw that a very vigorous attempt-  had been made to enforce it.  The Workmen's Compensation act  was one of the foremost pieces of  advanced legidation placed on the  statute books of the province by the  Oliver government.- The administration of that act could have been  placed in no better hands than in  Mr. Winn's; of llossland. Very  many people in this part of the  province had benefited by that act,  aad the speaker thought that these  people could show their appreciation in no better way than by  voting for the return of., the Oliver  government.  Mr. Henniger discussed other advanced legislation enacted by the  present government, such as the  mothers' pension act, the marriage  act, a new adoption law, the juven  ile act, and minimum wage law.  While dealing with the latter subject the speaker said that he had  eeen printed in tne coast papers a  sworn statement made by one of the  girls employed in Mr. Bowser's  office that she had received less than  the minimum wage scale, He had  never seen the report denied or contradicted.  The P.G E was a legacy inherited  by the Oliver government from   the  E. C. HENNIGERj  ���������������.-���������  Bowser  regime which was costing  the taxpayers of British Columbia  two and a half million dollars annually. The only people benefited  bythe, road had been the real estate  boomers of Vancouver, for a short  time only. .  Speaking on the subject, of taxation, Mr. Henniger stated that when  the Oliver administration assumed  office they had found the financial  position of the province in such a  .deplorable condition that they were  compelled to increase taxation in  order to carry on the affairs of the  province. Under the. present government the finances have steadily  improved, and now British Columbia bonds are selling at a premium,  The speaker compared tbe land  .policy of the present government  with that of the Bowser administration. Now the lands of theprovince  are availabla for actual settlers. Under the Bowser regime all the best  lands along the ljnes of transportation were held by speculators, Conditions in this respect had grown so  bad that the members of the Minis-,  terial association at the coast-had to  speak from their pulpits and from  public platforms against the government, "Do you want to re-elect  Bowser?" he asked.  Mr, Henniger described in an  amusing manner .< trip ho had taken  up the North Fork a couple of Sun  days ago, when he ran into an im  promptu political meeting. He met  the Conservative candidate there  and another prominent Conservative  from this city, who is also a deacon  in ono of our churches. The latter  had held the platform until long  after the evening service hour. Mr.  Henniger had asked his opponent if  he idtended to reside in the city until the end of his teim if he should  be elected, or would he do like many  of our former members have done���������  move to the coast a few months after  their election. Mr. McKie had replied, said the speaker, that he had  received some business  the coast.  Mr.   Henniger   gave   a    solemn  pledge that, if elected, he would continue his residence in   Grand Forks  as long as he represented the district  in the legislature.    The  moment he  decided to take up his  residence  at  the coast   he   would   hand  in  two  resignations, one to the local  Liberal  association and another to  the gov*'  ernment at Victoria.   There was not,  much   danger of   him   doing   this,  however, as all  his worldly  wealth  was    invested    in    Grand     Forks,  and he stated positively   that if he  was   sent   to  Victoria   would come  back. He had walked into the town  before   the  advent of   the railways,  and he did not intend to desert it by  walking out.    He had   recently  invested in the Great Northern ranch.  This was not a speculative   venture,  but merely to keep the  land   from  falling into the bauds of the Doukho  bors. Anyone who wanted  his   bargain could have it for the same price  he paid for it.    Pie had   lived   here  to see Phoenix rise to be one of the  great mining camps of the west, and  to see it fall again.   For many years  Grand Forks boasted of  having  the  largest copper smelter in the British  empire.     Now   the   great  Phoenix  mines   we're   worked   out   and   the  smelter here was closed, and it   was  time for the people to   back   to  the  land,    The speaker designated   the  editorof the Gazette as the chief crape  decorator of the city for blaming the  minister  of   mines  for the present  condition of the mining and  smelting industries in the Boundary.  Mr. Henniger then took up the  subject of irrigation; The first proposition was made by Joseph Manly  some years ago for a gravity system  from Curlew, but the ranchers did  not take kindly to this scheme. A  couple of years ago District Water  Engineer . W. J. E. Biker was sent  here to make a preliminary survey  for a system similar to Mr. Manly's  scheme, but after the plans and estimates had been prepared it was  found that the cost of construction  would be greater than the land  would stand. Finally the government sent Engineer Hodsdon here  to make a survey and get out plans  for a pumping system, and rhis was  the system now under consideration.  Mr. Hodsdon had made elaborate  maps and plans, and the government were in possession of every  detail of the system and a complete  estimate of its cost. The plans had  been declare'd to be entirely feasible. Mr. Henniger stated that he  was as vitally interested in irrigation as any rancher in the valley, as  his dealings were largely with the  ranchers, and if he was elected he  would work first, last and all the  time for water. Mr. Henniger read  the following telegram on this subject from Premier Oliver:  Victokm, B. C, Nov. 12, 1920.���������  Hon.   J.   D.   MacLean, care E, C.  Henniger, Grand Forks:    Re Grand  Forks irrigation: Estimated  capital  cost per acre, $77.50; estimated annual charge per acre, ������15.20. Eliminating No.   3   pump   area, capital  charge,   $70.17  per acre; estimated  annual charge, 814.15 pt-r acre. The  above figures are based on maximum  supply of two and a ,^-ilf  acre feet  per acre and electrical energy at one  and a half ceuts per kilowatt hour.  If owners are satisfied and  if  these  estimates   are   confirmed   by contracts, the government will   be  prepared to ad financing.  Joiix Ouvkij.  Mr. Henniger laid particular  stress on the fact that the irrigation  scheme is not an election eve promise. Work on it has been going forward for the past three years, and if  the- government is returned to  power he could see no reason why  the system should not be ready to  put the water on tbe land next summer. A change of government would  necessarily entail considerable delay.  Concerning the method of prose-  cut road construction, Mr. Henniger  said the present system of having  districts engineer to locate the roads  was far ahead of the method practiced under the Bowser administration, when the routes were selected  in a hap hazard manner.  .Respecting the Doukhobor  prob  Jem, Mr. Henniger said   he  would  -do everything he.could to right it if  elected.  . Mr. -"Henniger closed his speech  by paying a tribute to his opponent  as . a-citizen and a neighbor. He  firmly believed that the Oliver government would be returned to power  and that he himself would- be victorious on the 1st. i  Fred Clark |  " Fred Clark, chairman of the irrigation committee, gave a review of  the work that has been done hen  during the past few years to secure  irrigation.and he gave figures to show  the difference in the crops raised  here on irrigated and non-irrigated  land. lie was vitally interested in  irrigation, because anything that  benefited, the farmer also benefited  the merchant. He had devoted a  great deal of time to securing water  for the valley, and he intended to  continue to do so until the system  was an accomplished fact, In his  ���������opinion we were nearer irrigation now  than we had ever been before, We  would get irrigation, and we would  get it from the Oliver government.  He would stake his own reputation  for veracity on Premier Gliver's  statement. He did not believe in  taking the chances of drowning by  swimming a stream when there is a  bridge near by. The system now  under consideration ���������' appealed to  himas a- business proposition, and  he heartily favored it. His firm be.  lief that the present government  would give us irrigation had made  him come out with both feet for the  Oliver government and the Liberal  candidate for Grand Forks. The  Oliver administration vhad enacted  more good laws .during the four  years it had been in power than the  Conservatives did during the thirteen years they held office.  Hon. J. D. MacLean  Hon. J. D. MacLean said the  minister of mines' place on the platform had been well taken by the  Liberal candidate for Grand- Forks.  There were great oratorical possibilities in store for the man who  could hold an audience for  three quarters of an hour with his  maiden speech. His address showed  that he had been a close student of  provincial affairs.  When the Grand Forks irrigation  project came before the cabinet he  would hold up both hands,  The people were taking greater  interest in the affairs of the province this year than they had ever  done before. The Lfberal meetings  all over the province were attended  by overflowing audiences, and great  enthusiasm prevailed. The Liberal  government would be returned by a  bigger majority than it had four  years ago.  The speaker, in describing the  Bowser candidates in this contest,  said that more prominent Conservatives ^were |^at home attending to  their own business affairs this year  than had ever before been the case  during a political campaign. Comparing the two leaders, hc said Mr.  Oliver had earned tbe title of Honest  John. No one had yet called Mr.  Bowser Honest William.  British Columbia had'treated the  returned men more liberally than  any other province in the Dominion  In Vancouver the" president of the  G.W.V.A.was a ��������� candidate on the  Liberal ticket.  Replying to the criticism  of Mr.  Bowser respecting the  purchase of  the Christian ranch for a soldier settlement area, the speaker   said that  although there was nothing dishonest in the transaction, it was irregular, and the officials who conducted  it were dismissed from   the service.  Mr. MacLean   cited   simiiar   deals  under the Bowser government where  the officers responsible for them had  been promoted instead of dismissed.  The charge of joy riding bad been  made by the leader of  the   opposition. The speaker said that although  the   ministers  of  the   government  were   allowed  traveling   expenses,-  the   expenditures   on  this account  were   considerably   less   under the  present government than when Mr.  Bowser was in power.  The charge of  extravagance  was  answered by showing that the   civil  servants salary list under the  Bowser   government   was   $13,000 per  year; under the Oliver   government-  it is 87,800.   Civil servants' salaries  had increased 13 per cent:  miners'  wages 60 per cant.    There  was  not  enough money  in   the   province to  meet the increased cost if Mr. Bowser   should   be   elected  and he increased his civil   servants  expenditures at the rate, he did   during  his  last term of office.  Mr. MacLean drew attention to.  some of the incongruities of Mr.  Bowser's platform, and then stated  .that the interior of the province, had  been better treated by the present  adminstieration than .by any former  government. He cited all the positions in the government and on  commissions that were now filled  by men from the interior. .  ^During the last years of the Bowser' government" three and a half,  million dollars had been borrowed  annually to meet expenditures.  The policy of the present government favored good roads' in order to  attract tourists from all parts of the  United States, as it was, realized''  that our magnificent scenery is a  valuable asset to the province. In  order to increase the funds available  for road work, a bill had been passed providing for graduated license  fees for autos", which would materi.  ally increase the revenue from this  source. The speaker compared the  financial situation of the province at  present with what it was under the  Bowser administration in December,  1915.  Mr. MacLean spoke at consider  ble length on the P.G.E. subject.  The road was started by the former  government and it was a political  ruilroad pure and simple. Mr. Bowser's policy was to extend it to the  Peace river country at once. This  would cost 825,000,000, and wonld  bring financial ruin to the province.  The Oliver government intended to  continue the road to Fort George at  N-L-C CAN  WON IN VALE  Complete Returns Give  J. A. McKelvie a Majority of 381 in Monday's By-Election  -The federal constituency  of-Yale  in Monday's by-election returned J.  A. McKelvie, the National Liberal  and Conservative candfdate,   to  the  Dominion parliament.    Mr. McKeln  vie's   majority   over his   opponent,  Col. C. E. Edgett,  the Independent  candidate,   is   381,    with   all   the  polls     heard      from.       In ���������- 1908  Martin Burrell carried   the seat  by  893, and in 1911 by  1889.    In   the  1911 by-election, rendered necessary  by  tbe acceptance of a portfolio in  Sir   Robert   Borden's   cabinet, Mr.  .Burrell was  returned by  acclamaw  tion,   and   again   in   1917   in the,  Unionist election.  The successful candidate's ma-,  jority came from Vernon, where he  has lived for over thirty years, and  from, the surroubding country.  Oreenwood gave Col. Edgett a - majority of five.

FRIDAY/NOVEMBER 26, 1920  On Wednesday next the electors Iviil have  to decide who they want to represent them at  Victoria daring the next four years. In this  district the choice must be made between E.  C. Henniger and John McKie. Mr; Hen'h'i.-  ger has been a resident of this city since the  town was organized. He is a business man  of unquestioued integrity. He has riiade a  marked success of his business.7 As a citizen  no one has yet,pointed the finger of reproach.  He is in the prime of life, a good public  speaker, active, and alert to take advantage  -of opportunities as they present themselves.  He is progressive and aggressive, and usually  attains his goal. He has served the citycas al-  . derman with marked ability, and as chairmau  of the school board was, in conjunction with  the other members of the'board, instiimental  in tiding the city over, a crucial financial  period. In his private life there are many admirable qualities riot known to the general  public. His opponent, John McKie, is also  a gentleman and an estimable citizen against  whom we have nothing to say, but he carries  a millstone in the form of W. J. Bowser  around his neck. But leaving Bowser out of  the question, we are still of the opinion that  Mr. Henniger would make the better * representative for Grand Forks of the two candidates, especially as Mr. Bowser has no more  r chance of being the next prime minister of  British Columbia than the present editor of  The Sun has of holding the same position five  _,thousand years fromnow...       .' -  have to go through the formality of applying  or re-admission to the list: The' polls are to  be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. *  The women have more common sense than  some of the men give thim credit for having.  They are not going to vote agaiust the party  that gave them the franchise and the mothers'  pension act. They voted right on the temperance plebiscite, .and they will vote right  riekt Wednesday.  The few people in this vicinity who. can  see nothing in the present provincial contest  in this riding but the Doukhobor question we  would respectfully request to compare the  Record of the Conservative administration with  tHe work thathas been and is now*, being ^carried oh by the Oliver government to solve this  difficult problem. The Conservative government appointed a royal commission to investigate' the Doukhobor question. The commission  cost' the taxpayers of the province forty or  fifty thousand dollars. When the report, which  practically sustained the Doukhobors in their  law-evading habits- was made it was pigeonholed, and it has never since seen the light of  day. Compare this with the policy of the Oliver  government,which has forced the Doukhobors  to build thirteen school houses in their v communities and are now .compelling them to send  heir children to these schools. Four years  more of this policy-and the Doukhobor question will be nearer to solution than it is today. The boys and girls now attending these  schools will grow up to be men and women  very much like^the average Canadian citizen.  PLATE  Appeals to every woman  because it is a wonderful combination.of  correct pattern, beautiful, exclusive designs,  and a heavier plating* with a thick overlay'  of pure silver wherever wear is greatest.  Wa are glad to show Community Plate  wheter you  intend  to  buy  now" or later.  J. G. Taylor, Jeweler and Optician  (Sbe!^ " M''i"i"|,''i|"'i'"'  i  A     t  V, i  ������\1  Is there a woman w th the instincts of a  mother who does not approve of the mothers'  pension act? Is there a mother so ungrateful that she would vote against the party that  gave her this law? If such there be, then let  her vote for the Bowser candidate.  'The so-called Doukhobor question had its  inception in a federal policy. The question  really belongs at Ottawa toda}V because when  these people immigrated to this- conn try the  leader or leaders were able to obtain  from the federal government certain concessions and immunities which the provincial  government is powerless to annul were it in-  cl'ned to do so. Yet the parties who are now  endeavoring to make capital out of this matter for the Consevative candidate in this rid-  irig failed, to bring this question to the attention of Premier Meighen and Candidate McKelvie when they visited our city. It is not  honest politics.  The   man   who   can make  a big- IF out of an ordinary  if in  the pending   irrigation  project for this valley is not a  true friend of the best interests of this district. ' Would  you expect the .government to  install the system if the farmers did not want it? Or if they  did not want to pay for it? Or  if the cost would be higher  than the  land  would  stand?  That is the true interpretation  of the  ifs in premier Oliver's  dispatch.   Any    other  construction put on the words is  dishonest.-   Would  you . expect the government to  put  in the system if the owners  objected to it, and if the   cost  should prove too high for the  land?  ���������Under the the old laws of British Columbia  if a married man died without a will  his wife was disinherited. Four years of Liberal rule has righted this injustice. How will  the women vote?  Four years ago the province of British Columbia was worse than bankrupt. Today its  bonds are selling at premium. How will the  men vote?  Wc are glad to inform the Gazette that the  man who hunted for "Henniger's lieutenant"  with a roll of McKie money to bet is now  minus his roll. He met the lieutenant and his  bluff was called. The seqnel will be sad hews  to our contemporary. The man presided at  Mr. Henniger's meeting at Cascade. The  eagerness with which his money was covered  gained a convert to righteousness.  Considering the oratorical material from  Ottawa that was thrown into the Yale by-  election, the victory of the N.L.C. candidate  was not of the superlative degree. The result  indicates that the people want a change. It  was only Mr. McKelvie's high standing in his  home town that saved him from defeat. Mr.  McKelvie will make a good representative for  the Okanagan at Ottawa during the short life  that yet remains of the present government.  It is really immaterial what promises the  leader of the opposition makes. Did the Bowser government, when in power, ever live up to  its promises?  If you will bear in mind that a vote for the  Conservative candidate is a vote for Bowser,  it will help you to make a decision to  vote right next Wednesday Anyone at all  familiar with the records of the two leaders,  must necessarily vote for the return of the  Oliver government.  Before you make any statement about the  Oliver government not fulfilling its pledges on  the patronage question look over the list of  office holders in Grand Forks.  Electors are  reminded that if they do not  vote  next Weenesday in the provincial election their  names   will  automatically   be   re-  the voters' list, and before they  their franchise again  they wil  ������     ���������;���������'.   . i  moved   from  cm exercise  A correspondent, who wishes to be design  nated as "A Once Good Conservative," makes  a timely oiiticism. "Science fears nothing but  ignorance," he quotes. "A paragraph in the  November 12 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette stated that 'The minister of miues would  be able to give a decidedly illuminating account of the success of his progressive mining  policy, after he had gazed upon the ruins of  the Greenwood and Grand Forks smelters,  the deserted Phoenix mines and other idle  properties.' If the present opposition party  can revivethese dead ones, for goodness sake  let the people vote for them. There are thousands of worked-out mines all over the world,  whose owners would be indeed glad to hand  them over to such au administration, so that  they could be brought to life. The people of  British Coiumbia, after reading this paragraph,  will be on tip-toes in anticipation of hearing  what policy the opposition can put forward  that will allow country rock to' be mined  profitably. Science will hear its death knell.  Just such ignorant remarks as those in the  above paragraph will do harm to those for  whom good is intended, as such remarks did  harm to the prohibition cause. We have  never heard of a uewspaper editor being raised  from the dead, but anything will be possible,  seemingly, after December 1."  Mrs. Ralph Smith, the  foremost woman legislator of  theempire,addressed a crowded meeting of women in Pen-  ticton this week in the interests of the Oliver government.  How will the women vote?

It is an old  v saying that a man is known  by the  company he keeps.  When you join the ranks  of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  ��������� most successful  merchants  and manufacturers in the  - world.  . How many large concerns  can you. name in any large  city in the country? "Name-  ihem and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  vfc#  ������������������(  ihe ft&nks of  MGC������SS1  n wuutwtiVnKnBajKfi^  THE   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   B.
