Array The Grand Forks irrigation system, the most modern and efficient plant for its size in Canada, was made possible only* through the policy of the Oliver
government, and was obtained through the efforts ofthe member for Grand Forks.   How should the people of this district vote on June 20th next?
Victoriu, May 21.— Gov<-roments
are invariably suhj-cted to abuse
and misunderstanding. Admitted,
no government is ever above critic
ism and most governments hive
fallen far short of whui tuiglrt imve
been expected of them But wbat
the electors of any country must
decide is whether or not tbe ruling
administration can be impioved
upon by making a change.
Today British Columbia is within
a month of a general election. A
complicated situation exists. Throe
parties are in tbe field, but only one
can win. Aod the one outstanding
question wbicb the voter muat answer is: Can we afford to displace
Premier Oliver?
There m\y be some questions
upon which this paper does not
agrae with Hon. John Oliver, but it
does not feel tbat he alone of tbe
party leaders seeking the endorsation of the electorate is capable of
carrying on the government of
British Columbia with fair efficiency
and economy, No olher government in Canada has made sucb rapid
strides along tbe line of beneficent
legislation as bas the Oliver administration. It leads in social nnd labor legislation, forestry protection,
the encouragemmt of agricultural
and mining development, and its
leader has kept a li in hold upon
»he eqchequer, with lbe result that
today tbe credit of tlie province is
the beat in the Dominion.
That record would permit of
pages of comment, but in tbis day
of speed and economy, even in newspaper reading, the vofer has had
ample opportunity to judge for
himself. Tbe province hns been
flooded with anti-governmentpropa-
ganda, wbich naturally bas necessitated the government's checkmate.
Qovernment literature is being circulated freely. Thp voter who stands
firmly behind Premier Oliver needs
no counsel aud probably would take
none. Tbat, too, may be true of lbe
voter who has yet to make his decision. His problem is again the
question—Can British Columbia af
ford to remove John Oliver?
Compilation of agricultural statistics of British Columbia .or the year
1923 has just besn completed by the
department of agriculture, under
Hon. E. D. Barrow. An increase in
value isshown of nearly $4,000,000
over 1922. Tbe value of all agricultural products for 1923 was $59,-
159,000. Livestock increased from
114,550 000 in 1922 to 115,920,000
last year. Dairy products increased
by over 91,250,000, being $9,234,-
000, as against «8,000,001 in  1922.
The total fruit production shows
an increase of $1,100,000, last
year's value being $6,034,000, as
oompared with $4,915,000 in 1922.
Vegetables showed a alight increase,
as did grata.

FARM TAX RELIEF
Premier Oliver Galling a
Conference to Determine New Assessment
in the Province
Vernon, May 21.—Premier Oliver
carried his election fight-into tbe
Okan gan fruit country today with
a clear cut intimation of taxation
relief for the farmers of British Col
umhia in spr-eches ut Armstrong in
the ufternoon.find here in the even»
ing be announoed tbat be was on li-
ing together officials in charge of the
assessment of farm lands throughout
the province lo confer wilh them on
more equitable assessment methods
so as to relieve the burden ol tbe
agricultural producer at the next
session of tbe legislature.
He added an emphatic, denial to
tbe charge that his government bad
reduced tbo taxation on agricultural
lands at the lust session of the legis
lature purely as a political maneuver with tbe intention of raising it
again after tbe election.
When British Columbia renews
its freight and express rate fights it
wifl bave tho solid support of Al»
berta and S«6katchewon, tbe press
mier stated in bis spee-sb in Armstrong this afternoon. The premiers
of the two otber western provinces,
he declared, had agreed to put tbe
full weight of their governments
behind the campaign for rate equalization. He analyzed rhe r-te situation at length and explained bow
tbe interior fruit industry is stifled
by high express schedules.

"By their works sball ye know
them," runs tbe proverb, and witb
the election due ob June 20, it may
not be out of place to recount some
of the accomplishments of the Oliver government.
Outstanding are mothers'pensions
and otber legislatiou benefiting
women and children—tbe deserted
wives' maintenance act, maternity
protection for working mothers, protection of women and girls in fa?-
tories, minimum wage for women,
equal guardianship] of children,
the proper care of neglected children, establishment of juvenile
courts.
The workmen's compensation act
and the eight-hour law are outstanding achievements. To these
are. coupled free government employment offices.
This ts to name but a few of tbe
things accomplished by the government. Mention must be made of the
reduction in freight rates, largely
the achievement of tbe preraier.who
will make a further determined fight
for the rrmoval of all discrimination.

The Rossland Cascade highway
from Bossland to Christina Lake

the season, according to information
obtained from Road Foreman Prest

highway has been closed for eome
months owing to the heavy snowfall
Work has been under way for the
past month clearing bad places in
the road by government road gangs.
Tbis wili be glad news to citizens
of Rossland and surrounding district, as the drive over the highway

The highway is said to be in good

APPLE CROP
-■-..
The outlook for the marketing of
the interior fauit crop this year is
much more promising than it has
been for some time, according to
J. B. Dickey, a member of tbe sales
staff of the Associated Growers of
British Columbia, who acted for tbe
big cooperative in the middle west
last season.
He states tbat the organization is
in better shape and will receive
more united support than it received
lost year, They will be able to
profit by the experience they gathered then and, Mr. Dickey expects
will secure results that will be satisfactory.
The crop, he says, has been af
fected to a limited extent by the
irost, and though it is too early to
make an accurate estimate, it has
been stated that the apple crop will
not run more tban 85 per cent of
normal.

NEVVAPPLE
Planted in Official Trial
Grounds With View of
Permanent Registration
The Golden Delicious apple, which
is favorably regarded by certain
local growere, is among a number
fruits and flowers which have been
passed for recording bv the plant
registration committee of the Canadian horticultural council.
A statement on tbesubject.issued
by tbe director of publicity of the
Dominion department of agriculture
ie as follows:
Tbe Canadian horticultural council reports that a number of fruits
and flowers have recently been
passed for recording by the plant
registration committee of tbe council. These include one variety each
of the apple, peach, raspberry, fern
and lily The apple, named Golden
Delicious, originated from a seedling in West Virginia many years
ago. The raspberry, named Newman, originated on the farm of C P.
Newmau at Villa La Salle, Que.,
and waB discovered in 1911. The
peacb, Sangster, is of large dimensions, measuring tbree inches in
three directions. The lily, named
George C. Creelman, is the product
of a cross between Liiium Sargentiae
and Regale, made at the Ontario
Agricultural Coliege by Miss I,
Preston, now of the Central experimental farm, Tbe fern, Lady
Atholstan, is a sport from N. Scotti
and resembles tbe Boston fern.
These varieties will be planted and
observed in tbe official trial grounds
with a view to their permanent
registration.
DOOR IS OPEN
FOR FURTHER
Vernon, May 20 —To correct nn
impression which appears to be pre-
valent among some of our groweis,
that the Associated Las closed the
do rs against further negotiations
with independent shippers for some
practical, organized effort to control distribution and stabilize prices,
we wish to say that this is not in
any sense tbe true situation
The plan uuder consideration ob.
viously required the support of all
independent shinpers to be a practical solution of the marketing problem. This to date has not been secured. The leported association
including 100 per cent of independents was not formed uolil (bey
bad reported to ub that full support
oould not be obtained for the pro.
posed board of control.
The Associated, being assured of
the necessary 80 per cent, tbe question of their functioning for 1924
was definitely decided irrespective
of the negotiations with ehippers,
but this dees (mot mean ibal the
Associated gives any hss recngni
tion to the importance of unifnd
control of 100 per ceut of the crop,
or at least of united action for securing tbe best possible distribution
and stabilization of prices.
With this in mind, the directors
of the Associated »t tbeir meeting
on May H appointed a standing
committee consisting of the president, the general managerand Thos.
Bulman to aet in any further negotiations witb tbe independent Bbip-
perB for a practical solution of the
difficulty, but no indication has
been received that they are open to
further negotiations std no reply
has been given to alternative suggestions put forward by us—Associated Growers of British Cu'umbia,

One afternoon, says Mr. Farquhar,
a machinist came to us in high

for a job. We wanted to know, of
course, why he had loft his old place.
"Ii was thia way," he said, "the

CAN BRITISH COLU    JJIANS  REPU
~ DIATE OLIVER?
That is the question every voter must ask
himself before June 20.
Isolated out here behind the Rock mountains and three thousand miles from the political, linancial and population centres of
Canada, this province his struggled and
fought for thirty-five years for its very existence.
Omada's tariff' policy has prevented British
Columbia from eujoyhg commercial relations
witb our natural and adjacent trading markets
—■ Washington, Oregon and California. And
C na la's freight rate siructure is designed in
a manner which facilitates the movement of
western raw products eastward and eastern
manufactured products westward, disregarding altogther tin natural short haul in and out
to Pacilic tide-water. So that since joining
confederation, this provinceihas been the out
post, the tail-end of business Canada.
The Panama canal entirely changed all this
by dividing Canada into two transportation
slopes, and therefore into two trading areas,
the eastern area to be served from the Atlantic, and the western area to be served from
the Pacific.  «   •
But it is one thing to have a natural heritage or a moral right, aud it is another thing
to collect that heritage or enforce that right,
Notwithstanding British Columbia's claim
to greater recognition from Business Canada,
thc executives of every large financial, com
eial, political and transportation corporation
in Canada are personally inteiested and personally live in eastern Canada. Although Vancouver is the third city in Canada, there is not
a Vancouver director on theCanadiatiNatioual,
on the C.P.R., on the Canada Grain Board,
on the Dominiou liailway Board, or on any
one of the large institutions of Canada. Undor such conditions, what chance has B. C. to
get proper recognition—to even ge' a hearing?
The only chance we have of developing this
end of Canada within the next generation, is
to get out and fight for recognition, fight for
equalized freight rates, an equal charge for
equal service applying to other parts of (Canada, tight for free and unrestricted use of the
Panama canal, fight for representation 'on
financial and national directorates, and fignt
for the right of this province to develop ai)d
grow.
Whether one HUes or dislikes Premier Oliver; whether one agrees or disagrees with him
ou other questions (and the Vancouver Sun
disagrees with him on many things), it must
be admitted:
1. John Oliver's homely common sense and
dogged fighting qualities particularly adapt
him for a champion of equity and justice.
2. That he is lighting for conditions, which
are fundamental to the prosperity of British
Columbia. Without these conditions, we can
make no real progress.
,'3. That great, progress has already been
made by him in the case of grain rates, grain
elevators, and harbor improvements; and,
working with a sympathetic government at
Ottawa, there i.s every reason to look for and
expect even more favorable conditions in the
immediate future.
4. That lo replace Premier Oliver at this
particular time with either Mr. Bowser or
Gen. McRae would in effect say to official
Ottawa that we were not sincerely interested
in Premier Oliver's campaign. But this is not
ho; we are interested, vitally interested.
Disregarding petty issues, disregarding personal sentiment and disregarding political
sentiment, our provincial election gets down
to the simple economic question—Can this
province afford to repudiate Premier Oliver?
—Vancouver .Sunday Sun.
THE SOUL OF A NEWSPAPER
The soul of a newspaper is it editorial
column.
Without the convictions of the editor expressed editorially in his paper the paper is as
dead as an engine without steam.
It doesn't make any difference, whether
readers of the editor's paper agree with his
conviction or not. That is not a question in
dispute. If ait editor is honest, sincere and
conscientious in his oonvictions you have no
right to impugn his motives just because you
can't agree with certain things he may write.
If his writings do not carry the ring of honest
conviction; if he is merely writing to please the
popular fancy and selling his editorial influence
just to satisfy the money changer then, and
only then, have you a right to question his
usefulness as an editor.
The editor of the Windom citizen states the
case quite aptly when he says:
"The principal purpose of the editor'al column is to bring up something for his readers
to think about—something that they ought to
think about. The editorial page that achieves
that purpose is doing somethi.ig for its readers
that is a distinct benefit tc*-them. The writer
has had the experience a few times of having
subscribers come in and stop the paper because their views did not coincide with the
editor's opinion expressed in the editorial
page. People win read the'uewspapers in that
•lmnnr ire making a big mistake."
Another apt reference to edLors is herewith
reprinted from Northwestern Christian-'Advo-
cate:
"The editor is in the same citegory with the
teacher, the tniaister, the physician, the  politician.    For each of these named  to cater to
the desires and appetites of his patrons in the
school room or sanctuary or oliice or platform
without assuming responsibility to mould and
direct  the  public taste and desire, would be
counted   a gross  dereliction of a simple and
plain duty.   Imagine a  minister preaching a
gospel that his congregation   wished.    Wonld
there  be any denunciation of personal si   or
rebuke of unethical conduct? A politician who
builds his platform out of a popular sentiment
regardless of justice  might  win a campaign,
but would wreck a community or state.   The
business of 'giving the public what they want'
universally indulged, wouid  ditch  society  in
record time.    If editors would even  be con
jent with appeasing the perverted tastes of
the public, that were bad enough, but by glar
ing and profuse illustration they  actnally  develop  an  appetite  for more sensational and
salacious reading,    The press of the land can
become one of the greatest, if not the most
powerful single agency for  moral  uplift and
community betterment. The challenge is theirs
to accept.    Will    they?"—Sherburn  (Minn.)

At a consoi vative estimate 8000

timber industries in tbe interior,
with a payroll of close on $10,000,-

The standing timber of inland

According ',■> the last official report publish id, there are about 150
sawmill* aod shingle mills operating
with a daily opacity of 4,000,000
feet.
Heavy Production in 1923
In 1923 the logging camps in the
iutenor produced 442,000,000 feet
if logs of all descriptions aod the
value of th a aawn lumber alone was
not less than $8,000,000.-In addi-
lion large quantities of pol-'s, fence
posts, railway ties, shingle bolts,
etc , would add many hundreds of
thousands of dollars to this total.
The pole and tie industry of Central and Northern B. C. is davelop-
ing into a most important branch of
loggiug. As yet the pulp and paper
industry has no plant operating in
the interior, although an enormous
quantity of the very finest pulpwood
on the continent is available.

Those magic boots of old—the seven-
league boots—were the work of an imaginative mind. Who would ever expect
to walk seven leagues in a single step?
The story of the seven-league boots
was written in the days long before the
present time with its possibilities. These
days there is no need for such wonderful
steppers. There is the telephone. It is
no effort now to talk a hundred times
seven leagues. The world is virtually at
one's door. This age of wonderment is
based, too, on imagination, but is imagination plus practical experiment and
great development.

Canada is financially sound. On
April 14th the investors and savings
account holders of the country wern
offered twelve million dollars worth
of Canadians-Pacific Railway five
per oent bonds and by four o'clock
that afternoon the issue had been
over-subscribed and the books were
closed. Telegraph orders came from
all parts of the Dominion, a splendid evidence of the amount of money
available for sound investment and
the country's confidence in thc future of the big railway. Another
evidence is seen in the fact that
small investors are putting savings

pays ten per cent on par value of
$100,000. Since 1907, Canadian
holdings of this stock have increased

"Since I began taking this wonderful Tanlac I seem to he gelling
younger every day. I have gained
14 lbs. on I bottles and everybody
speaks about how well I look."
The above statement was made,
recently, by Eugene Lepnge, proprietor Prince of Wales Hotel barber shop, Montreal, Canada, one of
the most exclusive tonsorial parlors
in this city. Mr. Lepage farther
said:
"Stomach tronble bad almost
completely wrecked my health. 1
was a mere shadow of my former
self and so run down and nervous I
thought I would have to give up
work.
"Tanlac soon had me slating
everything, sleeping like a log at
night and feeling as fine as one
could ask to feel. My only regret
is that 1 did not learn about Tanlac
long before I did."

A battery has a definite job to do—it supplies the power to turn
over thc engine, makes hot fat sparks to ignite gasoline and feeds electrical current to lights and horn. Ready at touch of finger or toe, Prest-
O-Lite batteries snap into action a hundred times a day and night. They
are ruggedly built for strenuous service. Long life is built into Prest-O-
Lites at the factory. Check over the most popular makes of Canadian-
built cars and you'll find the majority equipped with Prest-O-Lite batteries. Watch for Prest-O-Lite service stations—you'll find them everywhere you go. Prest-O-Lite is the first choice of motor car builders, battery service shops and experienced car owners.
