The British Columbia   Workmen's Compensation Act is the most complete piece of legislation for the protection of worlringmen in the world.    The
Oliver Government put it upon the statute books.    Workingmen should remember this when they cast their ballots on ihe 20th of June.

"Tell me what you Know la tru»
I can'miess aa well an you."C
FRIDAY, JUNE 13,  1924
Unqualified endorsement of the
government nnd praise of Premier
Oliver for bis determined fight f
equalized freight rates were the
dominant notes sounded by all tbe
speakers at the Liberal meeting in
the Empress theater last night. D.
McPherson, president of the Grand
Forks Liberal association, dresided,
The house was comfortably filled.
Mr. Henniger, Liberal candidate,
thought tbe organization uf a counter attraction for the evening by the
Conservative women of tbe city
looked very much like spite work to
keep the ladies away from the meet,,
ing. After paying his respects to the
slanderous Searchlight, he compared
the records of Bowser and McRae
with that of Honest J jhn, and a
comparison of. the leaders of tbe
three parties was also made. He
charged tbat Gen. McHae was trying to buy his way to political
The speaker said he would bave
to apologize for not being able to
call on all the el ctors, as the time
before election was too short. Mr.
Atwood, third party candidate, had
done considerable talking about tbe
Doukhobors. Mr Atwood emyloyed
no one but Douks and Hindus
hig ranch. Personally the speaker
did not favor the Doukhobors, but
he thought they wereimprovi gaud
in a few years tbey might become
good citizens. Tbe slump in copper
mining waou'ue to competition from
South Ameri-a, where tbe metai.
be produced at halt ibe eust it can
in this province.
In spite of the Calamity howlers,
Mr. Henniger maintained  tbat tbe
province ia enjoying a large measure
of prosperity, and cistd tbe wonder
ful increase in automobiles and ex«
ports to prove hie contention.   Exports    could     not    be    increased
witnout increasing the payroll?, and
statistics showed tbat the   payrolls
had increased fivefold. A great deal
had be:n said about tbe per capita
cost of adminstration in this prov
ince, but no one had said anything
about our per capita wealth.which is
twice as large in British Columbia
as tbat of any other province.   Mr.
.Bowser had   told   the   electors  of
Grand Forks tbat the government
had squandered  money   in   otber
parts of the province—in other sections of the province be probably
told the people that money had boen
squandered on the Grand  Forks irrigation system. Mr. Hennigerquot
ed statistics to show that taxes were
lower in Britisb^Columbia last year
than  in   the  state of Washington
and in   many   otbsr   parts of tbe
country. The question of tbe third
party being returned was not a seri
ous one --Millionaire  McRae could
Dot buy his way to political  power,
While he   was not  in favor of the
liquor traffic, he drew  attention to
the fact that the city  had reoeived
over (6000 last from tbe profits of
the  government  stores and other
sources.   The speaker paid a tribute to the members of tbe government, saying tbat tbey were men of
intelligence and integrity—tbe accusations of the  Searchlight were
only hearsay.
Mr. Henniger closed his address
by appealing to the electors for
their suffrage. He waB in a confi
dent frame of mind. He had been
over the riding and tbe outlook was
bright. Had ft not rained the gov,
ernment would have been blamed
for tbe drought.   Now that it has
rainpd, the return of the government and hi» election were assured.
Miss Ann .Sutherland, barrister
of Vancouver, prefaced her address
by sayins that she felt quite at
home in Grand Forks, as she spoke
here during the lust provincial eleos
Gen.   McRae, she said, was   the
leading spirit in   the  Frnser mills,
but she doubted his clnirn  to being
the largest individual ovner of timber interests, as   there   were many
other men  with large timber intern
ests in the province.   The plank in
the McRae party platform to abolish
political  patronage wns good;  but
the people had not forgotten tl at a
man   named     Rossiter   had   be-n
promised   a   very  phat job in tbe
event the 'party  was successful at
the polls.    Tbe plank providing for
the   posting   of certified copies oi
campaign funds was also commendable—we would  all  like to   know
who   is  financiug  the   Provincial
party.   McRae    made  accusations
agafbstthe Oliver government.   Af-
ter reading    about   McRae's   Port
Mann scandal tbese charges sounded
lovely.   This nine  million dollatB
capitalist pays $18 75 income  tax.
"And why does  McRae have to ob
tain political power t; develop his
timber interests?" asked tbe speaker.
Mr. Bowser, when the women of
B.C.  were fighting for   lit   !mii-
chise, had Baid that he never wuu'd
give tlis women the ballot.   Premier
Oliver, ou tbe other hand, bad faith
tully carried   out every  pledge be I
had  made . to the women.    It was
beyond   comprehension   bow    any
woman    ould  vote for  Bowser or
McRace.   Some women argued lhat
they now had the franchise and tbe
laws in favor of  women, and they
did not care who was elected. They
•hould not forget tbat tbese  law-
could   be   altered   or taken off the
statute books altogether.
Miss Sutherland tben   reviewed
tbe social lews enacted by tbe Oliver government,   sucb as the deserted wives'  maintenance acl; the
maintenance  of   parents by   their
children*  adequate    provision   for
widows and children; maternity pro
tection to prospective mothers  who
are obliged to earn a living;  protection to women and girls working in
restaurants,laundries or other places
where police consider it necessary;
prohibition of employment of worn*
en during the night iu any industrial undertaking; provision for vali
dating conveyance of land or assignment of personal property from wife
to husband, as well  as busband to
wife, without intervention of trustees; tbat subsequent marriage legitimizes fjom birth children   born out
of wedlock; the equal guardianship
f infants; limiting tbe employment
ofchildren,  and  prohibiting nigbt
employment of all under   18 years
of age; tbe proper care of   n glected
children;  tbe establishment of juvenile courts so  that cbilden may
not  be associated  with criminals;
the detention am training of subnormal   children; tbe employment
of dental surgeons and nurses every
school   day  at tbe schools, and for
free treatment of venereal diseases;
mothers' pensions; workmen's com-*
pensation;   employment    servic ;
eightxhour   day;  wages to be paid
semimonthly; minimum   wage for
women; Orientals in   laundries; extension   of   weekly    half-holidays.
These laws, said the speaker, are not
freak   legislation—aii    men    and
women who scoff at them should be
ashamed of ibemselves. Other provinces and nations, notably England,
New Zealand and the United States,
are copying  them.    "In carrying
out tbeir policies of economy, does
Bowser and MaRae intend to abolish
ihem I" asked tbe speaker.

graceful condition of the boys'

Mr. McGeer then devoted the
greater part of the time at his dis

will continue tbe fight—he had
fourteen years to start it in," said
tbe speaker. "The people of the
prairies are looking to Oliver to obtain justice. With equalized rates,
in five years Vancouver will be the
greatest grain port in the world."

"That Man Henniger"
In Firm and Some of August 18ch,   1921,
thare appeared, under the above  heading,  an
editorial from   whioh   the  following extracts
itrd taken.    The opinion of Farm and   Home
il Jjl i l) )f i'li! •'*,'',; , i i ) !•:)■' H J" l I d
Fsfk-i iTi'Jiiiwo) 1 riling at tha present time
"Grand Forks niy compliment itself
on haviug provided British Oolumbi i with
a real political representative of integrity,
strength and all-round merit in the form
of E. 0. Henniger, the present member
of the legislature for that riding.
"Henniger was elected as a Liberal and
won his seat on the strength of the prom-'
ise. of a badly-needed irrigation project. . . . Henniger was sinceae in his
desire to serve his community and was
not merely looking for a seat in the legislature.
"While there is nothing fancy or oratorical about Henniger, there is a great
deBl of solid worth. He holds his constituency above party.-  .    .    .
"One thing is certain: no matter under
wliBt banner  Henniger travels,   he will
serve his constituency faithfully. He is of
the type for which rural British Columbia
has been looking for a long time.    .    .    .
Grand Forks   will do  well to keep
Henniger where he is. '
The editorial from which the foregoing  extracts are taken is a remarkable tribute to Mr,
Henniger from a journal wliich has shown  no
love for  the government which he supports.
It is a convincing proof that  Mr. Henniger is
recognized throughout the  province as a man
of independence and general fitness for his
position far above the ordinary.    Those   who
are  so vigorously  striving  for his defeat ap
yarently believe that his supporters nave forgotten the degree to which lie possesses those
splendid qualities.   The electors of this riding
would be foolish indeed to discard   Mr. Henniger and elect either of his  opponents, no
matter what their promises or their party may
for the community that should be given due
consideration by the electors who have not already made up their minds how to cast their
ballots. Perhaps the most notable of these
acts was that of securing quarters in tbe court
house for high school purposes. This was
done at a time when the city really needed
assistance in this direction, and the appreciation of the deed should therefore be proportionately great in gratitude. The housing of
the high school free of expense during the
[last few years has saved the ratepayers a
great deal of money, Surely they will not vote
against the man who was the means of bringing about this saving.

Vast Sums Spent Annually in Various Forins

While Mr. Henniger has been our member
at Victoria every section of the district has
been given equal consideration. No favoritism
has been shown to any part of the riding, and
it is safe to say that none will be shown in the
future, even though the district has been considerably enlarged.
Why do the Bowserite and the McRae party
of slander and destruction speakers lay.so
mueh stress on bringing back prosperity to
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 tiie
•ger cities. Today the Vancouver dailies
are carrying large double-column advertisements for carpenters at $0 per day. Go out
in Grabd Forks and try to hire a man for a
day and you'll soon see where you are going

The most momentous election in the history
of   British   Columbia will be over h another
week,   and     with     the   campaign   warmed
up to a hot piteh the electors are paying more
and  more   attention  to the  issues at stake.
Never befora have so many candidates been in
j the field.   Premier Oliver has   rallied strong
[support for his business policy.thefreght rates
ssue taking first place. Even prominent oppositionists in  Vancouver   and Victoria have
pledged him their support, purely because of
the freight rates fight.    The comment is heard
on Conservative and Mcliae  party platforms
that the Oliver government has done nothing.
It is perhaps only fair to point to the compre
hensive plans now in the hands of the  administratis. Included are:    Highway   construction, includi igthe transprovincial; educational
survey; university construction; freight  rates;
comprehensive social legislation;   eight hour
law; colonization; aid to mining development,
Such a program, already partly carried out,
appeals strongly  to the people, so strongly
that there appears little doubt  but that the
government will be sent back to office  with a
clean-cut majority.
Tlio   forest   industries  of   British
Columbia   rank   easily   first  as providers of revenue to tha general busi
ness community of the Provinoe
if any typical lino of commercial
activity is taken, striking illnstra-
tions can be immediately furnished to
prove this fact.
For instance, how would the insurance compani--* in British Columbia
faro without tli<3 bnsiuess they derive
from the lumbering industries?
The products ofthe forest are often
insured  as  many  as  five  times  betweon the stump and tho retailor:
1. In thb Woods—Insurance of log
ging camps ind cut timber.
2   In the Boom —On the way to the
mill by water.
3. Manufactured—Insurance of saw
mills, shingle mills, box factories,
pulp and papi'r plants.
4. Rkmanufaci'UREd — Insurance on
planing mil! :—sash and door anrl
furniture factories.
5 (a) Marine -insurance on lumber
(b) Freight —Insurance    on   rail
shipments to inland poiuts.
(j   In tub Pile —In  retailers' yards
The timber industries of British
Columbia represent an investment of
about 1190.000.000. Tho premiums
covering the different typos of insur
,'t.iee on tho property involved would
amount to a largo sum.
Again,at a conservative estimate,
one-fourth of the population ef British
Columbia is directly dependent on the
timber industries for a livelihood.
The insurance on the lives- and
properties of the personnel of the
"lumbering group" must obviously
furnish the companies with tho main
proportion of thoir revenue.
The stock is complete in very
line, and up to-date and of
superior quality.

Thirty Years of D
Experience Certainly Tells in Making Tires
■ ■Bi
You cannot go astray In your tire purchases
if you buy this kind of experience:—
Many a man is driving
a motor today who was
not born when Dunlop
Tires flrst appeared on
the high way r of Canada.
Thirty years is a long
time in the Tire business.
It is the very beginning
of the industry. 1888
saw the world's first
pneumatic tire; 1894 saw
the industry taking hold
in Canada.
Doesn't it stand to reason, in view of the above
facts, that we must be
better equipped and better qualified to serve tho
exacting demands of Tire
users ?
Knowing the past of the
Tire Industry so well, we
must have pretty good
intuition regarding not
only the needs of the
present, but the possibilities of the future.
30 Years in Canada
