Victoria, Sept. 14.—According to
a statement given to a Vancouver
paper this morning by Premier OH
ver, the next session of the provincial legislature will commence on
Tuesday. October 18.
"The reason for the early date,"
explained the premier, ' is that I
wish to have as little interference as
possible between the sitting of the
legislature and the holding of the
Dominion election."
The principal work of the bouse
thiB fall will be dealing with matters
of taxation and passing the 1922 23
This will bo the second session of
the present government and the
sixth undei Liberal rule since the
Brewster administiatioo won at the
polls in 1915. There is a strong belief that in tuture all sessions will be
held in the fall of the year, giving
the finance and public works departments an opportunity to raise
loans when the markets are best and
so enable tbe officials to have funds
on hand early in the spring for the
year's work.
Another reason given by those acquainted with the political situation
is that should tbe Oliver government
lose Hon. Mary Ellen Smith and M,
A. Macdonald, its strength would be
considerably impaired, but with the
early sitting of the provincial legis
lature, most of tbe important work
would be out ofthe way before that
support might be withdrawn.

Two Ranches at
Bridesville Sold
Two important real estate deals at
Bridesville were closed last week,
when Chester Charlton and John L,
Dodds sold their farms.
Chester Charlton is well known
throughout the Boundary d'strict
as a breeder of thoroughbred Here-
fords. His well improved ranch was
sold to Messrs. Jeffrey and John
Reid, of Victoria. The deal comprises all as a going concern vv%th the
exception of the blooded stock,
whicb are retained by Mr. Charlton.
The consideration is repoited to be
in the neighborhood of $20,000
cash. It is not expected that tbe
Messrs. Reid will arrive to take possession hefore March 1, when Mr.
Charlton will possibly purchase
more extensive holdings.
Last Friday John L, Dodds, who
for the past twenty five years hus
farmed bis half section west of
Bridesville, disposed of his farm and
equipment to James A. McDonald,
of Grandview, Man., the price being
about #4000. Mr. McDonald has
already taken up his'residence on
his newly acquired property and is
putting in fall wheat. Mr. Dodds,
who is now past 73 years of age, will
purchese a small place and expects
to spend the remainder of his days
near Bridesville.

The provincial government has arrived at
the conclusion that in order to keep the members in their seats at the next session of the
legislature it is necessary to call the house to -

The precautionary step taken by the premier
will undoubtedly have the effect of makiug

The Poor Must Climb
Upward Economically
A new frontier has risen before the people,
particularly in the past ten or fifteen years,
says Dr. David Kinley. president of the University of Illinois. It is a frontier of problems
of public policy. We have before us a group
ofproble s, physical, economic, social, political, educational, requiring solution. The kind
of solution we choose will determine the
policy and fix the character of the people for
a hundred years to come.
The old political problem was to establish a
government strong enough to win obedience
and deserve retognition; to show people the
need for and the character of a political organization able to exercise authority over matters of common interest which required regulation. This was a more difficult thing than at
first might appear, for the individual on the
frontier felt little need for government help.
He could take care of himself.
The political problem of the new era is different. It is not merely to keep order but to
evolve national unity out of racial, economic
and political diversity. True, this problem has
been present from the begiuning; but it has
not been the important phase of the political
problem until our numbers grew so great as to
make nocessary a wider and more intense recognition of the authority of the government,
'Ths new social problem is to preserve that
spirit of democracy, that spirit of equality of
individuals, whicli marks the frontiersman.
The newcomer in a frontier town was not
asked where he'came from or who his ances
tors were. The password of his admission
was, "What can you do?" We must prevent
the establishment of caste.
The new economic problem is so to conserve and utilize the resources that remai n as
to keep open to every individual n this democracy equality of opportunity in the road to
economic success. If democracy is to continue,
wc must make it possible for every individna'
newcomer into our democratic group to earn his
living and to win his economic independence.
We must still make it possible for the poor
boy and the poor girl to climb upward economically as a result of his houcst efforts under
conditions recognized by tho laws of a democratic people. If wc do not, then we must
make up our minds that classes and castes will
grow and that across their lines it will not be
possible for individuals and citizens to move

A little fault is like the runnel that becomes

The country child's chance for the start in
life that hinges on education is just one-half
