In his speech at Greenwood last
Friday night Hon. John Hart, minister of finance in tbe Oliver government, said, according to tbe report of the meeting in tbe Ledge:
Hou. John Hart was the speaker
of the evening and delivered a very
witty and able speech, Dealing with
tbe allegations in an anonymous
pamphiet which he said looked like
tbe work of Mr. Bowser and Mr.
Esling, he stated tbat tbe figures
given for the cost of tbe civil service
were incorrect, being $1,600,000
instead of $2,000,000, as alleged.     ,
At Victoriy they had one great
problem, and if it were removed the
duties of finance minister would not
be very arduous. This was the Pa-
oific Qreat Eastern. Mr. Hart went
back to tbe inception of the road,
and tbe terms on which the original
contract was drawn. When the
present government took ofli* t it
knew something was wrong with the
P.G.E, and beld an investigation
under oatb. It was dis overed tbat
parts of toe road had never seen a
contractor, and' that money had
been paid for mileage tbat bad not
been built.
Sworn evidence showed that
money had been paid into the late
government's election fund, Mr.
Bowser being at. that time leader.
Mr. Hart said tbat four Conservative
members took Mr. Bowser eo task
for tbis, and ht was said to have replied, "GenMemeo, forget my past;
my future will be spotless."
The minister referred to the condition of the province's finances
when the present government took
office, and stated the treasury was
depleted. To catch up on sinking
funds, tbe present government bad
to borrow $1,000,000. He referred
to the government's attempt to borrow in various markets, its total Jre-
quirements being $6,000,000. Although plainly due to the late government, tbis borrowing was charged
against the present administration.
"The borrowings of the government amount to a lot of money,"
said tbe minister, "but when explained they do not seem so great."
"Mr. Bowser says, the P.F.E. is
Premier Oliver's baby. The premier
says it is Mr. Bowsei's. I don't oare
whose it is; I have to take care of
it," said the minister, amid laughter.
"Was the sums spent in agricultural loans reckless expenditures?"
asked Mr. Hart.
""Millions were Bpent to open up
the country witb roads. Was tbat
"Was it reek less to spend $2,000.-
000 to the r'turned men who wanted
to go on the land? The government
wsb able to borrow more cheaply
than the men, and g^tve tbem tbis
advantage. A sum of $3,000,000 was
loaned to the farmers wbo wanted
similar privileges
"In botb oases tbe government
had full security and would not lose
a dollar.
"Tbe Dominion loaned $1,500,000
ti tbe province for use under the
housing scheme, and tbe province
loaned tbe money to municipalities,
whicb loaned it to returned men for
building purposes,
"Take away the $17,600,000 of
the P.G.E. Do you approve of the
other borrowings or not?"
Mr. Hart claimed that Mr. Bowser wus willing to change his policy
to suit eacb riding, even to build a
railway into tbe Pouce Coupee
t Toe minister commented upon
the criticisms made on bim for borrowing in tbe United States, which
even the Dominion had had to do,
and for borrowing on short terms,
the latter enabling tbe province to
secure benefits from falling rateB of
He predicted that Mr. Bowser, inebriated with visions of victory,
would achieve about tbe same success as the inebriated mouce would
have achieved against the tomcat if
he had tackled him.
Mining Rush Along
P.G.E. Is Predicted
According to a report from the
co st, the prospect of mining activities in tbe Lillooet and Cariboo dis
iricts, ae Boon as weather condiiions
are favorable, ie certain to result in
min'y of those to take part in the
mining rush becoming permanent
residents of the country served hy
tbe P.G.E. railway, in tbe opinion of
men wbo bave marked the result of
former mining activities.
Tbe previous lack of transporta
tion bas prevented tbe proper ex
ploration of fbe country and it
might, therefore, have been difficult
to estimate approximately bow lieb
the territory is in minerals. Present
activities indicate, however, that
thousands of people will join in the
mining rush to the Lillooet and
Cariboo tbis spring. They are only
waiting for the weather to become
sufficiently mild to enable them to
undertake extensive mining opera-
Witb excellent land wbich can be
pre-empted by settlers, it is tbe
opinion of students of the situation
that many of tbose miners will remain in the district to develop the
land, as-tbis country offers wonderful agricultural possibilities, according to official statements from tbe
P.G.E. railway. Mucb of tbe territory is adapted admirably to mixed
farming, and clover and fodder crops
produce abundantly, thus making
the area ideal tor stock raising.

Kenneth Campbell, Government Candidate, Receives a Bi£ Majority in
Wednesday's By-Election
Vancouver.—That the new Can
adian Pacific steamer "Princesa
Louise" is easily the queen of the
coast in performance, size, construction and fittings, is the opinion of
the passengers who came from Victoria on her first trip. |
Tht* steamer has commenced regular service, under command of Captain T. Rippon, formerly of th*
steamer "Princess Royal," and will
continue on the Vfctoria-Vanco'iver
run until early summer, when sh*
will go on th* Skagway run tinder
command of Captain Slater. Ths
engine-room is in charge of Chief
Engineer James Pettigrew. The
"Princess Louise" is a source of
•special pride to the people of the
Coast owing to the fact that she is
entirely the product of British Columbia craftsmanship. Hull and *n-
Slne* w*re built* by the Wallace
Upbuilding Co., and th* superstructure, cabins, fittings aad decorations ar* all loeal werk. Th*

In the by-election in Nelson on
Wednesday, Kenneth Campbell,
government candidate, was elected
by a vote of more than two to one
to represent tbe riding of Nelson in
tbe provincial legislature for tbe unexpired term of Dr. VV. O. Rose,
over Mayor C. F. McHardy, Con*
eervative, wbo lost his deposit. The
vote waB 1053 to 494, and Mr.
Campbell carried every one of tbe
eleven polls. ,
Dr. Rose, who resigned bis s at
in tbe house last November to contest tbe federal constituency of West
Kootenay in tbe recent Dominion
election, represented tbe riding from
tbe general election of 1916. Mr.
Campbell is the first Liberal to sit
for Nelson, since Dr. G. A B. Hall,
wbose term expired with the dissolution of November, 1909.
Victoria, March 23.—Premier
Oliver today admitted he was elated
over tbe result of tbe Nelson by-
election yesterday, in which tbe

. There is a growing .suspicion among tax
payers that the only social condition that will
satisfy the present generation is a mother's
pension for every woman and an unemploy
ment allowance for every indolent male inhabitant, with moving picture shows within

After a careful examination of the vote in
the Nelson by-election, one is forced to the
conclusion that there must have been many
traitors among the guests at the pink tea
party tendered Hon. W. J. Bowser -by the
ladies of that city. *

day?" "Pretty good, kid," she  retorted; "how
are you?"
Roger W. Babson, the financial expert, has
this to say in a recent financial letter: "I am
convinced it will be the labor situation which
will bring to an end our present period of
prosperity- and throw the nation ultimately
into chaos. The solving of the labor situation
is wholly a question of religion.. The wage
will never be satisfied with higher wages and
shorter hours, any more than you and I are
satified with more profits and a bigger bouse.
Things never did satisfy anyone and never will.
Satisfaction and contentment are matters of
religion. Communities and industries, where
right motives are paramount, have no serious
labor problems. Wben both employer and
wage earner honestly believe that we are here
in this world to serve others, tbe labor problem
will be solved—but not till then. We employers should learn to give up, and labor sbould
wake up. However, neither of us will do it except as we are actuated by religious motives.
Both groups are largely actuated by selfish
motives at the present time."
Thank God for the might of it,
The ardor, the urge, the delight of it—
Work, that spring from the heart's desire,
Setting the soul and the!brain *^n fire.
Oh! what is so good as the heat of it,
And what is so glad as the beat of it,
And what is so kind as the stern  command

Are Constant
Solutions of telephone problems are
nearly always made in advance of necessity. .Improvements are experimented
with constantly, so that the standard of
service may be at all times thc very best.
It is not that a standard may be maintained, but that the standard may continue to be as close to perfection as it 1s
humanly possible to have it. P-iobiems
of speed, accuracy and transmission are
always before the telephone engineers,
and the great and precise mechanisms
through which the volume and complexity of telephone traffic is handled are
mechanically perfect in the light of present invention.

Fur, Farming Supplements Nature's Efforts in
Filling the World's Demand for Pelts
Conservation and propagation are
tha slogan of those interested ln
the fur industry of Canada. Without conservation, which means wise
laws for the protection of fur-
bearing animals and strict enforcement of those laws, these animals
would soon be exterminated. Even
with conservation of the best sort,
wild animals cannot be protected
from starvation in bad /ears, nor
from tha ravages inflicted by
large; candnrora, so man has turned to the domestic propagation of
many fur-hearers.
The fox breeding industry is, of
course, the biggest money producer,
The little maritime province of
Prince Edward Island was the birth- I
eat   tkU  t*ma*mS**ai***A,    lia  UM
several breeders were engaged there
ln the business of raising silver
black foxes, but they guarded with
great secrecy their methods of
handling and needing the foxes and
of marketing the pales. In 1010 thc
industry experienced a wide development and fabulous prices were paid
for breeding stoek. Fox ranches are
to be found all over Canada to-day,
bit. Prince Edward Island continues
to lead. In 1919 tMs province exported about 1,000 foxes of a value
of afaom WO0.0O0 and 2,500 pelts
that fetched |TB,000.
But the fox does not monopolize
the bit farmers' efforts. Thnre nro
in Canada ranches for the propagation   tl   rr-Mnt».   beaver,   mink,
In expensive .ioijquet
raccoon, martin, fisher and skunks.
If the)' are provided with sufficient
land on which they- can live as in
their wild state, tnd are supplied
with food when the weather or unusual conditions demand It, the*
will thrive and multiply and yield
the farmer rich returns.
Each year sees more and moro
Canadian farmers setting apart •
section of their holdings for tha
raising of fur-bearing animals.
Where wild animals are caught and
used for foundation stock, tne coat
of starting a fur ranch is very small.
To show the beauty of Canada's

Mr. Dafoe spoke on the prospects

Dunlop Double-Life. High-
Mileage Cord and Fabric Tires
Will Save You More
Than Ever
Compared  to a few years   ago tire users are getting easily double—and even
more than dot/Me—the mileage in the tires of to-day.
Ten,  twelve  and   fifteen  thousand  jmiles  are just average mileages to-day.    And
the records on the road show that Dunlop Cord Tires and Dunlop Fabric Tires are
even exceeding these mileages.
With Dunlop big mileage you have roclv-bottom prices and paramount tire quality
—tire quality that is accepted as standard  to-day,  and  which  other makers are vainly \
striving to duplicate.
When you can get a tire with prestige back of it like DUNLOP, and with practically
an unlimited guarantee, why chance your life on a second-rate tire at any price?
In Dunlop Cord Tires you have "Traction" and "Ribbed* to choose from.
In Dunlop Fabric Tirea you have "Traction," "Ribbed," "Special, " " Clipper," "Plain."
