Candidate Cossitt and
Premier Oliver Deliver
Effective Speeches to a
Large Audience
A very large audience gathered in
the Km press theater on Tuesday
eveniog to listen tn the addresses of
F. B. Cossitt, Liheral candidate (or
Yale, and Hon. John Oliver, premier of British Columbia. D. Mc.
Pherson, M.L.A., acted as chiirmsn
of the meeting and introduced lbe
speak- rs to tbe audience,
Mr. Cossitt confined  the greater
portion of bis address   a discussion
of  matters   directly   affecting   the
people of the district.    Mr.  Cossitt
is a fluent and logical fpeaker,   who
possesses a pleasing style of straight
forward delivery, and   bis remarks
on tbe various subjects  be handled
seemed to carry conviction to tbe au»
dience     He spoke very highly of
tbe Robb budget, saying that it wag
tbe bast budget ever  brought down
in tbe bouse rf common. Tbe speaker pooh-poohed the disloyalty cry of
Tories.   Nothing nas accomplished
by keeping up this cry.   Tbe Liber-
•Is were as loyal as tbe Tories.   The
U.S.  did   not want   Canada   any
more than Canada wanted the Uoi-
ted States.   Speaking oo  tbe tariff
question,  Mr.   Cossitt   assured tbe
audieuce  tbat  no tariff  legislation
would be enacted th t would injure
the farmers of British Columbia. In

Mr. Oliver cbaracisrized some
of tbe statements made by Hon. H.
H. Stevens io connection witb tbe
customs probe as barefaced falsehoods. Tbe case of a woman smuggling narcotics had been transferred
from 1921 to 1925. He also made
the statement tbat a large number
of the officers involved in tbe customs scandal were Conservatives ap-
poiiiied under a Tory administration.

Mr. Oliver emphatically declared
that the old age pensions bill was
workable. Tbe federal governmenl

of the Robb budget the Vancouver
Dafly Province said "it was winning golden opinions everywhere."
Tbis is the budget wbicb Ihe Conservative party attacked tooth and
nail in the bouse of commons. Tbe
same Vanoouver newspaper said tbe
Australian treaty was "ooe of tbe
solid achievements of the King
government." This is the treaty
wbich the Conservatives attacked in
the house of commons and bave
been attacking ever since But it is
one of tbe best bargains of this kind
that British Columbia has sver had:
Not a single Conservative spenker
in this province has so (ar dared to
discuss Mr. Meighen's imperial relations policy. Tbat policy would
oblige Canada to old ao election in

which the empire bad become in

before a verdict could be given.

When the Meighen government
went out of offiae in 1921 this cour-
try's adverse trade balance with tbe
rest of tbe world amounted to no
less a sum than $30,000,000. At the
end of the fiscal year of 1925-1926
the D-minion's favorable balance of
trade with tbe rest of tbe world
amounted to moie than £400,000.-
Vancouver's bank clearings and
building activity tbis year have
broken ell records. Yet it is oot

goods and chattels and going to
Seattle. But be did not say that in

Vernon, September 9—The greatest shipment of fruit tbat ever left
the Okanagan valley in one day was
despatched Monday moroiog, when
114 cars of fruit, mostly apples,were
polled ou of Vernon bound for tbe
prairie markets; Tbe train bad a

Tbe AsBooiated and Independent

Speaking at Orillia the otber  day,   Mr.
Meighen said:
"Tariff revision on farm products will be
-   in the very first tariff revisin we make. We
will make only one revision, and in that re
vision we will place the tariff on farm   products entering Canada to just as higb a
level as the American tariff."
But there is a joker in the pack.  On a good
many farm products the United  States  tariff
is lower than that of Canada.    Mr.  Meighen
apparently likes the "brick for brick   argument" when talkiug in Ontario—that is, he
promises a tariff wall of tha same dimensions
as the United States "brick for brick."
If sucb a policy were followed the duties ou
some United States products entering Canad
would be lowered. In this connection the following statistics are illuminating:

Aak your Chevrolet dealer about the
GMAC Plan of buying a car on time.
UHnll ir
Grand Forks Garage
THE ffrice of a car is what you
pay—thc value is what yon get.
Value is the combination of Quality
and Price.
Notwithstanding the recent remarkable reductions in Chevrolet prices,
Chevrolet does not aim to be the
cheapest car in its class. It does aim
— and is justly considered — the
greatest value in its class.
The smooth Chevrolet is outstanding
value, not only because it costs you
less—but because it gives you more
—more smoot'iness of performance
-more pewer and speed — more
instant acceleration — more striking
beauty of line and finish—more richness of u«hc'!-tery—more completeness of appointments.
To pay less than the price of the
smooth Chevrolet is to sacrifice
quality. To pay more, for a car in
the   Chevrolet   class,  is  needless
The Smoothest Chevrolet in Chevrolet
history is r.cliin<- at the Lowe.t Price
for which  Chevrolet haa  ever been
cold in Cr' -tl*.
Saving Burglars Time
A tag with this inscription,
"This safe is uever locked,
turn the handle and it will
open,"has hung on the knob
of the strong box of a fuel
company at Tulare, Cal., for
the   last   seven  years.     Al
though the statement is perfectly true, burglars do not
believe it and have ransecked
the safe three times It is
used only for protection of
records against fire, and no
money is kept iu the safe.

Beating: the tram to the crossing
is always a risk .n favor ot tha
train but when a motorist halt* his
car and waits until an engine hi almost alongside him before he tries
to get over, then the risk becomes
an absolute certainty—against the
motorist. This was the ease recent*
ly in Toronto where a car was signalled to stop by the watchman at
a crossing, obeyed the signal, and
then decided he would still try and
get over. Fortunately there were no
injuries and the only sufferer wat
the automobile.

Old Age Pensions
One ot the advance pieces ot
social leigslation which was Introduced in the commons last session was the bill to provide for
old age pensions. ThiB bill was not
based on the theory that the state
owes every person a living, but
rather on the fact, that the provision
of an assured comipetence lor old
age, is an easy matter for some,
While, for others, it is mJDBt difficult,
if not wholly impossible. Also it the
young are to be given a fair saort
inlife, tlie care of the aged should
be subjeoted to the humiliation of
not be tbeir first responsibility. If
reward, yearh that are denied op-
portunityof employnient should not
dependence or charity.

Pure beer
WHEN pure beer, as is the case of British
Columbia, is available to the people, the
drinking of liquors of high alcoholic content is
lessened and true temperance is promoted. The
legal, above-board and Government controlled sale
of beer in British Columbia, in licensed premises
by the glass and in Government stores by the
bottle, has removed this Province from among the
communities in which alcoholism is a factor of
The attempt at total prohibition made in the
United States early showed its complete bankruptcy from a moral point of view and its utter
failure ?.s regards enforcement. Now its ill consequence* from a social standpoint are becoming
To mention only one result, among seven million
people insured by the Metropolitan Life of New
York the death rate from acute alcoholism has
increased 600 per cent, since the enforcement of
prohibition was attempted. Which means that as
pure beer was taken from the people an illicit
trade in concentrated and easily handled liquor of
high alcoholic content, and mostly poisonous,
sprang up and drunkenness increased.
Recent deaths from poison alcohol, made from
motor radiator spirit, in Ontario and New York
afford an example of the harm of preventing the
use of light beverages such as pure beer. This
flood of death-dealing poison, naturally, did not
affect Quebec, where pure beer is to be had by
the people in the most free and open manner.
The people of British Columbia are protected
against the danger that comes from making
distilled liquors a beverage—for which they were
never intended—and against the poison brews that
flood the United States, for British Columbia is
provided with pure beer by the five modern plants
of the Amalgamated Breweries, the sale of which
is supervised and controlled by the government
Pure beer is a healthful and invigorating beverage of a
definite food value, with an alcoholic strength of 4M pet cent.,
as required by law in British Columbia, only sufficient to
stimulate thc digestive system in the most favorable degree.
Its consumption, inasmuch as it displaces the drinking of strong
distilled liquors, is a GUARANTEE OF TEMPERANCE.
The members of the Amalgamated Brewers are: Vancouver
Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,
Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver Spring Brewery Ltd.,
and the Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd., where the beer
