Throw Away The Crutches
On the eve of lhe presentation or .the i'.udget at Otiawa each year tho
|>r��-so of the counlry, and notably in the nianufaciurlng oliies of tlio East, is
filled with predictions ot dire disaster thai will overtake ihe country if there
Is any lowering in Customs duties through which protection is afforded certain industries. This year was no exception to the rule, iho manufacturers
oi agricultural implements and machinery being the most outspoken.
While il is only human nature that these manufacturers should light lo
the last ditch io retain any and all advantages they enjoy, and which are calculated lo add to the value of their plants and increase their profits, and ud-
liiinhig that Ihey are only doing what any other class would do. it is in the
nalional interest that such claims as are advanced by them should bo fully
t.vani.ni-d in the light of actual facts.
ii. a recent, article in this column figures were given showing thai, in 1923
Canada, imported coal from the United Slates to a value of over % 100,000,000,
find iron aud iron products lo a value of $152,85-1,000. both largely imported by
iiianufaeuirors, whereas during I.he same period the value of agricultural implement..-: and machinery imported from across the line only amounted to
?!l,72l,Si.6.
Th.e manufacturers feel aggrieved because of these $Vl,72.l,So(i of im-
j.onalions and contend that if the tariff was only made high enough these
goods would be shut out and replaced by Canadian-made articles. Tliey
ldame the. inadequacy of the tariff from their standpoint for this loss of
businoss. ��
It is interesting, therefore, to note that in this same year Canada exported
farm   implements   and   machinery   to   a value of $S,1ST,-192.     The Canadian
' jiiaiiurac.iurers were able to sell to this extent in foreign markets in which
they were not protected by tariffs, but in spite of tariffs levied against them
and in open competition with the whole world including tho United States.
In  other words,  Canada's  imports  of farm implements  and  machinery
from the United Slates were only $3,r>3-i,"6-l in excess of exports, which goes
to show  thai   Iho Canadian  manufacturer of these implements has mighty

THE ASSYRIAN EXILE OF ISRAEL
Golden Text: "I will delight myself
in thy statutes:
I will not rorget they word. Psalm
119.16.
Lesson: 2 Kings, Chapters 11 to 17.
Devotional Heading:   Psalm  119.33-
40.
The Text Explained and Illumined
I. A Recapitulation of tho Reasons
for the DownfulI of Israel, verses 7-
12. Here wo have, according to Dr.
Maclnren, 'a post mortem inquiry into
the diseases that killed a kingdom."
The historian makes no mention of
Ihe overwhelming forco of the great
Assyrian army,- but emphasizes tho
moral and spiritual causes that led to
tho destruction of Israel. "It wns so
because tho Children of Israel had
sinned against their God." Their
first great sin was ingratitude (verso
7). Israel owed its very existence to
Jehovah, who had 'brought them up
out of the land of Egypt, from under
the hand of .Pharaoh. King" of Egypt;
but instead of being lo3'al to him they
had followed other gods and the laws
of the heathen nations about them.
Compare the first commandment: "I
am Jehovah thy God who brought thee
out of the land of Egypt; out of the
house of bondage. Thou slmlt have
no other gods before me." And tho
children of Israel did secretly things
that were not right against Jehovah,
their God. "The Israelites cloaked or
covered their idolatry witli pretences
that it wa3 a worship of Jehovah, so
glossing it over nnd . dissembling towards God, instead of openly acknowledging their apostasy." Other sins
aro enumerated. They built high
places for idolatrous practices from
lho'lower of the lonely watchman
who guarded his flocks to the fortified" city; wherever, that is, there
was;a handful of people. Upon every
high hill" and under every green tree
they set themselves up   pillars": and

Great Liberal Rally
At a very harmonious convention
held by the Liberals of the Grand
Forks-Greenwood riding in the
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday
afternoon, April 26th, E. C. Henniger, the sitting member for the
Grand Forks constituency, was the
unanimous choice, as the standard
bearer of the Liberal cause in the
combined ridings at the next Provincial election.
The attendance at the convention was the largest in many years,
delegates coming from every part
of the combined riding, 6ome coming a distance of over 60 miles. D.
McPherson, president of the Grand
Forks Liberal Association was iu
the chair and performed bis duties
in a very capable manner.
Previous to tbe nomination a
telegram was read from Hon. J.
D. MacLean, present member for
Greenwood, stating that he had
been tendered and accepted the
nomination for Yale and that he
wished the choice of the convention
every success. He regretted not
been able to attend the convention
bnt will visit the constituency during the campaign.
The nomination was proposed
by Mayor T. M. Gulley of Greenwood and the seconder was difficult
to name as several delegates rose
simultaneously. The naming of
the candidate . was received with
great enthusiasm.
Following the nomination, the
nominee, Mr. Henniger, addressed
the convention at some length, in
which he discussed topics that
affect the people of this district and
the province as a whole. Attorney
General Manson followed him in a
brief speech. Mr. Mauson paid a
high tribute to the ability and integrity of the sitting member, and
complimented his constituents on
having a representative at Victoria
with the watchfulness for their interests that Mr. Henniger possessed. r       7 W   ��� '

a?'thoroughly as he did from" .a delegation.-

Hon. John Hart
- Hon.-Mr.- Hart made reference "to. his
last visit. here when; after speaking . on
that.occasion, he was taken, to the local
rinkand given his first- lesson in curling.
He said that although private business
had.-forced \hiin to retire, he would use

left office. Today the credit of British
Columbia is second to no other province
in-Canada. When the government took
office the rate of interest was 7 to 7^ p.c.
while today  money   can  he secured at
Mr. Hart also drew attention to the
reductions made in late years in the taxation of orchard properties, which, when
taken in connection with the reduction
of assesment, amouut to about 75 p.c.
The speaker finished his remarks by
saying there was uo reason for pessimism
as to the future of the province under the
Oliver government.
Hon. A. M. Manson
Mr. Mauson iu the course of his address, dealt largely with the royal commission appointed to inquire into the
charges of mismanagement and misappropriation of funds.
The "Searchlight," backed by McRae,
was a scurrilous sheet. McRae had been
a mud slinger and he did not believe the
farmers of B.C. would be led by such a
man. McRae had demanded a P. G. E.
commission and got it. He did not expect it, however, and it had proved his
undoing. The commission was the
broadest ever, given. There had been
much given of "the trail of burned books
and lost records," but all the original
documents were produced.
The speaker went on to examine in
some detail McRae's connection with
Port Mann flotations and the Northern
Pacific Fisheries put into liquidation for
the triumphant acquisition at huge profit
by the Pacific Whaling Company, winding up with an acid reference to "this
eighteen dollar, ten cent.millionaire."
Mr. Manson, then turned to Mr.
Bowser, leader.-of the opposition, rating
him for his administration and the legacy'
of debt aud trouble he had bequeathed to
the Liberal government. The P. G. E.
and Dominion trust wire dealt with in
turn.
Mothers' pensions under the-present
B. C. Act, Mr. Mauson declared, were
the most liberal in Canada.
Dealing with the civil service, he said
he had no apology to make for its conduct. There had beeu a slight increase
in its cost, but in private services the increase had been 100 per cent. In 1916
.the cost was ��35,000, and the staffs totalled 166, while now the'cost was $37,000,
with a staff total of S9.
