Extracts from Premier
King's speech at Vancouver:
This Liberal government in
four years has done its utmost to weld together our
sister nations within the empire by means nf that most
practical instrument of friendship and close relationships—
It is an axiom of Canadian
Liberalism that unity is one
thing we must ever keep before our eyes—one condition
whioh we must ever have in
mind when framing federal
We have adopted a policy of
moderation in tariff matters,
neither high protection nor
free trade. We believe such a
policy will tend to unite these
diversified elements in our
country, to cause our people
to forget their differences and
work for happiness and pros
Our trade figures show that
our efforts to secure foreign
business have been successful
—I was going to add more
successful than, we had dared
to hope. In 1922 we had a
favorable trade balance of
$37,000,000. For the fiscal
year ended last March it had
reached $276,000,000. The
government can legitimately
claim credit for this increase.
We Liberals have tried and
will try to see that our foreign trade grows to greater
and greater proportions-
We are convinced that our
policies have brought closer
together the many diverse
elements in our couutty. We
are equally convinced that the
policies adopted by rhe Liberal government will help
materially to bring together
diverse elements of bur empire-

With this year's crucial election campaign now entering
its final stage, the national issues at stake have be. n boiled
down practically to the "sugaring off" point.
j Perhaps never before in Panada's history have such momentous questions been before the electors—questions which
will have a determining influence upon the Dominion's future
for generations to come.
Leaders of the chief parties have almost exhausted their
abilities in expounding their doctrines, while candidates
every whe-re have left no stones unturned to ensure election.
To the experienced observer one issue predominates,
namely, western Canada's "forced" development.
For years, generations even, a so called misunderstanding of tbe needs and rights of the west has maintained in the
older provinces.
The trend of development has been westward for centuries, but only during the past year or two has the west
come into her own, and that chiefly to the equalization of
freight rates and the reaognition that western Canada, and
British Columbia especially, is destined to become a commercial pivotal center of empire.
A Utopian view, in the opinion of Conservatives, and
rather a large order to any but those whose business judgment and nation.il foresight envision the Pacific province as
such. v
It has remained for Premier Mackenzie King and his
cabinet thus to recognize the true status of British Columbia.
Opposition criticism has declared that pre-election
promises count for naught.
However, already the government's policy sees prairie
grain flowing westward, and nothiug short of Conservative
obstruction can stem the tide.
The re election of the Mackenzie King government
means the immediate development and super prosperity of
British Columbia and the prairies.
The defeat of the government spells the continuance of
the neglect of the west through tbe, perhaps, unwitting disinterest of the east.

In every election there are always a number
of electors who vote against the government
merely because   they   say tt   is time for a
change.   This is a loose-way of reasoning. In
Great Britain the majority of people evidently
voted against the government simply for tbe
sake  of a change.   Conditions in the   old
country at present do not indicate that they
acted wisely.   The same mistake should not
be made iu this country on the 29th. The only
sensible thing to do in order to vote intelligently is to study the records of the ewo parties and to vote for the one that has benefited

The word penny occurs a number of times
in our English version of the New Testament,
especially  in the four gospels, for instance,
Natt. 20:2: "And whon he had agreed  with
the laborers for a penny a day, he sent them
into his fvineyard."  The eoin to whioh the
name penny is given was the denarius, a' Ro
man silver coin in circulation iu the time of
our Lord and the apostles.   It was the princi
pal silver coin then iu use throughout the Ro
man empire. From the parable of the laborers
in the vineyard it would seem that a denarius
was then the ordinary pay for a day's labor,

The invitations were gold-inscribed, and the

In Holland tbere has just been celebrated a
curious juilee—the fiftieth anniversary of the
Dutch Society for Optional Cremation. Since
this society was founded a radioal caange of
view has taken place in orthodox Protestant
circles in favor of cremation. In 1876 a pe
tition was sent to King William III aod the
second chamber requesting a revision of the
law regarding burials and the introduction of
a special authorization of cremation. Every
year the petition was renewed, but no answer
was ever made to it. Oniy in 1913 was the
first Dutch crematory at Westerveld, neai
Haarlem, opened, tbough cremation was not
yet recognized by law. When Dr. Vail lan t,
the oldest ["member of the society, died in
April 1914, at the age of ninety-six, it was
decided to cremate his remains, thus making
a test case. The state prosecuted the society
but the supreme council of the Netherlands,
after a long procedure, decided that oremation
was not punishable. Since then tbe earthly
remains of many Hollanders have bee committed to the fires in the furnaces at Westerveld.

"I Promise the Wert: Impartial Justice and Erjual Treatment"
IS famous Ordex-in -Council is oonerete evidence
that he means to carry out   this   polioy.   The
Order reads:
"The committee are of the opinion that the policy
of equalization of freight rates should be recognized as being the only means of dealing equitably
with all parts of Canada* and as a means of encouragement of industry and agriculture* and tbe development of export trade."
Contrast this polioy with the statement of Mr.
Meighen, whioh his followers—the Conservative candi-
. dates—will be compelled to support by reason of the
pledges of the Conservative candidates in the East.
Meighen said:
"There has been a measure of relief for the West
by means of equalization of freight rates, which
is utterly indefensible." ,
There you have the polioy as it will be applied to
the West, of the two parties who now ask your endorsation.
The polioy of the Liberal candidates is to populate
the West. Population will come where it is profitable
to live. Open Canada's natural trade routes to the
world's markets, for the tremendous natural resources
of the West.   Equalize freight rates Westward, and you
will have turned the key that unlocks the door to prosperity.
A definite example of what these discriminating
rates are costing tne West—as they affect the fruit
growers of British Columbia—is found in these figures:
From Grimsby to Montreal, it is 390 miles—and
the rate is 95c per 100 lbs.   •
From Vernon to Calgary, it is 340 miles—and the
rate is $2.40 per 100 lbs.
The same discrimination is applicable to all lines
of Western production. This is startlingly evident
when you asoertain that in the six years previous to
1921, the West contributed $174,000,000 net profit to
the Canadian Paoif ic Railway—while the East, with the
greater poplation, contributed but $81,500,000—less
than half.
You must decide whether the man you send to
