the fact lhat British Columbia can
only reduce taxation at the expense
of tbe municipalities, and that
wherever a dollar is taken ofi provincial taxatiSn, probably two will
have to be added to municipal taxation.

the province? The electors have not forgotten the conditions that existed under Mr.
Bowser's former administration. Men roamed
the streets of every city, town and village in
thc land vainly hunting for work at any wage,
and the soup kitchens flourished in all the
larger cities. Today the Vancouver dailies
are carrying large double-column advertise
ments for carpenters at $6 per day. Go but
in Grand Forks and try to hire a man for a
day <and you'll soon see where you are going
to land.
The election  campaign   whioh  closed last
night has, in many respects, been ih s bitterest
ever witnessed in British  Columbia.   Fortunately there have been few charges of open dishonesty made agaiost any can li 1 its or ^roup
of candidates.     Reot-imtaations   have   been
hurled pro.ni-J3U.msly by ill irl   i i i Iry,   ut
that is to be expected  in  any  election   light-
Now, when the votes are about to be counted'
the elector finds himself facing an outstanding
situation.    Thu )p;ji:i ints of tho Liberal government are saidly divided, which   can   mean
but one   thing, and that is that the Conservatives are not satisfied with their leader,  and
au ambitious group, called the Provincials.see
an  opportunity   to  finally oust Mr. Bowser,
reorganize the Tory party and get somewhere
at the next election.    Plain to the studeut of
the political game is the unity among the government ranks.    Perhaps it is easy to  unite
when   the enemy assumes alarming proportions, and the Liberals' opponents credit the
reigning party with sufficient astuteness to take
advantage of that situation.    However, what
the voter is interested in more than anything
else is a capable government.    He does not
expect to get tnat from   a group goverument
such as would rule the province in  the  event
of the Liberals not receiving a  working majority.   He also  has to reject or endorse the
Oliver administration upon its  record.    Government records are never all the public could
desire,   but it  is generally conceded that the
Oliver administration h--w provided  the  best
service possible under the very severe conditions which have maintained since 191(5. Fur
thermore, the government has outlined and
actually made great headway upon a comprehensive administrative program, and it would
seem only the sensible thing to do to instruct
the Liberal party to proceed with that program.

G. G. McGeer, K.C., describes Gen, A. D.
Mcltae as a "four Hushiug real estate shark
traveling in the guise of a statesman." Here is
his condensed opinion of the general: "Mr.
McRae is the biggest political joke that British Colnmbiahas ever had paraded in its midst
and in the coming election, if my observations
are correct, he will not elect a solitary mem
ber."
Criticism of the government's road policy
has bee ;me an election campaign issue, with
Conservatives and Provincials. The government, saddled with an interest charge of $2,-
500,000 per year because of the P.G.E. railway lagacy inherited from the Bowser govern •
ment, has not sullieient money for roads.
However, from every electoral district in the
province have come ootnmendations to Hon.
II. Sutherland for the comparatively splendid
| condition of provincial roads. True, tliere is
not a district in British Columbin that couid
not do with more and better roads, but when
I the vastness of the province and the slender
income of the administration are considered,
the wonder is that so much has been done.
Lower Taxes Mean
Inferior Government
Those who howl about the increase in taxes
in British Columbia during the Oliver regitbe
and demand immediate *ax reductiou, oan be
come, for a half hour or so, their own finance
minister and do tbeir ewn tax cutting.
Below is givei. a list of public services,
abandonment of which would result in lbwer
taxes:
1. A road policy that is extending.
2. Motor highways through the whole
province.
3. Construction of the road that will
connect the coast with the interior of
British Columbian.
4. The department of labor.
5. Operation of the mothers' pension
act.
6. Operation of the school for ihedeaf,
dumb and blind.
7. Grants to the muicipalities aud cities
for the maintenance of educational institutions sueh as the B.C. Technical School
in Vancouver.
8. Aid to municipal hospitals.
9. Grants to public schools in municipalities.
10. The University of British Columbia.
11. A living wage for civil servants.
Now, Mr. Tax-cucter, where will you start
to cut?   Which one of these essential services
are you prepared to sacrifice?
The truth is that if the people of British
Columqia want superior goveaument service
they must pay lor it. Lower taxes in British
Columbia can only be brought about by giving
inferior service to the public.
And who among government critics is prepared to vote for inferior government?—Van
couver Sun.

Figures issu d by the Dominion

The above figures do not include

The railways benefit enormonsly
by the heavy freights paid on camp
and mill machinery, equipment and
supplies, entering the Province.
The forest products group buys
more material aud employs more persons than the three or four next big

Satuday aud showed him some tine cabbages,

The Sun's attention has been drawn to the

the phenomenon. He ventured the opinion
that ball games in this city lately have crip

the distance by minutes. Say to yourself,
"Such or such a place is so many minutes away," meaning, of course, that if

Jf you want to talk to a friend or discuss a business matter, no place is very

George Munro, pioneer track layer of tho Canadian Pacific Railway,
received birthday congratulations on May 21 from Mr. E. W. Beatty,
during the latter's recent visit ln Vancouver. This meetini*; between one of
the oldest employees and the executive head of the Canadian Pacific also
marked the forty-ninth anniversary of the turning of the first sod on
construction at BY)rt William ln 1875, an event at which George Munro was
present.
Another interesting coincidence in connection with the meeting is the
fact that the S. fl. Quebec, which carried the handful of construction men
including Mr. Munro, from Sarnia to Fort William, In May 1876, waB owned
and operated by the Beatty Steamship Line, of which Mr. Beatty's father,
