candidate for the Grand Forks-Greenwood riding were the speakers at a
public meeting held in the"1 Greenwood
Theatre on Monday evening. Wm. B.
Fleming acted as chairman.
In opening his address Dr. Kingston
congratulated Hon. Dr.  MacLean on
obtaining his high office but wondered
if he was sincere in his profesions of
gratitude to the riding for giving him
his start and he thought had the premier been sincere the business conditions of this riding would be much better.   The Hope-Princeton road would
have materially-benefitted the southeast portion of B.C.   This road make
tho' distance to Vancouver 230 miles
shorter than the highway which is now
being built through the Fraser canyon.
This road was surveyed and 16 miles
completed by the'government" of the
late Sir Richard McBride and construction was only closed down on account
of the war.   Dr. Kingston thought that
a splendid opportunity had been missed
by  Dr.  MacLean  when  he  had not
advocated the employment of the returned men in the building of this road
which would have so benefitted his old
constituency.
The candidate said that some of the
social legislation of the present govern

ment was admirable but they were trying to get credit for "some that had
been inaugurated by the Conservative
parly mentioning mother's pensions, old
age pensions, Workmen's compensation,
deceased workman's  act,  government
inspection of factories, medical inspection  of  schools - and   also   votes - for
women.   The Liberals however, do not
take credit for the absentee vote which
he considered gave them three of their
members '(Mrs. M. E. Smith, Hon. Ian"
Mackenzie and J. M. Bryan) their .seats
unfairly, and he would' bring" to -tlie" attention of the audience that they had
not sought nomination in their old ridings," Bryan having retired, Mrs. Smith
going to Esquimalt and Mackenzie lo
North Vancouver. 	
He then referred to the Candlelight
published by D. McPherson four years
ago in which .he urged support of the
voters on the grounds that a supporter of the Govern tuocnemdl
er of the Government could do more for
this constituency thanan opposition

Porks, Mr. McPherson said that- no
matter if the Government were defeated
he would still be in a beter position to
serve this constituency than Dr. King-,
ston and he was sure that there would
be a' few Liberals in the House, so apparently Mr. McPherson expected the
Government to. be defeated.
Dr. Tolmie was well received on
rising to speak. He, said he had been
criticized for no running at the different bye-elections but he did as agreed
at the Kamloops convention, resigned
his seat in the Federal House when the
elefcion was announced;
Referring'to the increase of debt and
to the over expenditure ��� on Government contracts Dr. Tolmie stated that
the actual expenditure for 1920 exceeded the authorization by approximately
$3,000,000 indicating a looseness and
extravagence.  ,_' .,v;
He then went on to say that although
thc P.G.E. was a problem to be solved
yet it was not so great or important .a
problem as to bring about better prosperity in the province, so that our sons
would not have to leave this country to
make a living.  ���'"

The public meeting and dance put
on by' the Liberal party on Wednesday
evening was a success   beyond   their
wildest dreams.    Messrs. J. W. deB.
Farris and D. McPherson were advertised to speak and by 8 p.m. the theatre
was filled to capacity.   Owing to some
delays on the road the speakers were
some thirty minutes late in arriving.
The meeting opened at 8.45,-   with
Mayor Gulley in the chair.   Mr. McPherson being the first speaker.  In his
usual clear and decisive manner he delivered a masterly thirty minute speech-
he punctured the Opposition criticisms
of the government policies,  financial
and otherwise.
In connection with the professed astonishment of the Conservative speakers that the Government released the
P.G.E. contractors from their original
obligation to complete the road,   Mr.
McPherson' explained that ths best settlement possible was obtained and was
approved by all parties in the House
at that time,  Mr. Bowser having given
to the late Premier Brewster a letter
to that effect. "Does Mr. Bowser now
join in this siliy criticism?", he asked.
"No, Mr. Bowser knows -it is simply a
trumped up charge; lie knows v/hat he
did in 1918 and he is man' enough to
stand behind it". There were two major
reasons for so releasing the contractors, , said Mr. McPherson.   The first
was that it would obviously have been
unfair for the Government to insist-
on the contractors carrying out a contract which, under .the changed conditions cf the war, would-have meant
financial disaster for them; the. second

Mr. Farris
Mr. Farris, who was formerly attorney general in the: Oliver government,
dealt, principally with a financial situation and showed how ridiculous were
the .statements of the. Opposition   ih

"and they think we ought to add these

blame the Liberals for having to carry
it? Not only that, but if the P. G. E.
bond guarantees must be accepted as a
part of our net debt, what about the
other $50,000,000 which they guaranteed the MacKenzie & Mann people ?
t was no credit to the. Conservative
party in B. C. that this province did
not also have to pay that obligation.
Mr. Farris had something to add re
the matter of Fraser Canyon, road contracts. "There never was such a thing
as.a contract for $375,000 by Palmer
Bros. That figure represented the first
estimate of the engineers, for a twelve-
foot road, on a unit price basis. Contracts are not let for any lump sums;
they are awarded on a unit basis, that
is, so much for loose dirt, so much for
hard pan, so, much for solid rock.
The work which is in question cost
more money than the. engineers first
estimated because tlie road was made
wider than was at first proposed and
a much larger yardage was moved than
for the Dominion Conservatives, and
who, incidentally, organized them so
successfully that they went out of
of business."
Dance Big Success
About 300 people attended the dance
in the Masonic hall following the meeting and merriment was at its wildest
pitch.  The dance was proceeding gaily
when each gentleman was presented
with a fancy hat.   The spectacle they
presented added an additional stimulus till the crowd simply went wild. In
addition there was a  balloon   dance.
The scramble for ballons would have
to be seen to be appreciated.   About
the only .comparison would be a New
York stock market in a state of frenzy.
The time passed so quickly, that when
the home waltz was played the dancers
wondered what had gone wrong, not
realizing that it was past three a.m.
The total proceeds, $139.00, were donated to the Greenwood and District
Hospital. PAGE TWO

PREMIER MACLEAN SAYS HE
IS CERTAIN OF VICTORY
Vancouver, B.C., July 8.���Campaign
workers and other Liberals welcomed
Premier MacLean at Hastings street
headquarters at noon Saturday. The
premier who spoke at Agassiz on Friday
night motored into the city for a consultation with his newly appointed
cabinet ministers.
The premier predicted victory all
along the line, declaring that every seat
now in possession of the Liberals
would : be retained on July. 18 and
that certain Conservative strongholds
would be. captured. Not since. 1916, he
said, had he found the party more in
harmony or so determined to win. The
new candidates were, of excellent calibre, he said. In North Okanagan,
the Liberal standard bearer was the
"find" of the campaign, he declared.
"In Yale the enemy have stopped
fighting," said the premier.      ���""'���'

A .32 calibre bullet penetrated the metal sheath of
a 250-pah* aerial telephone
cable in Vancouver, recently.
Fortunately one of our maintenance men found it and
made the necessary repairs
before any serious trouble developed.
Had the discovery not been
made, however. moisture
would have entered the cable
via the bullet-hole and 250
telephone lines would have
been put out of order.
Trouble on telephone lines,
caused by stray bullets hitting
the wires, is one of the many
problems with which our
maintenance men have to
contend.   %

Fith winter snows dispersing
rapidly and ice dissolving into
lakes and streams; with the"rising
of sap and budding of trees,
memories of anglers awaken picturing streams,where one would
'������wish'to fish, days'
"When even the deep blue
heavens look glad,    ". . "
And gladness breathes from
the blossoming ground."
The waters of Nova Scotia, New
Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario
have all their devoted ifollowers
waitinjg for the ice to disappear.
These anglers are always eager to
try new fishing grounds, and they
will have hew waters thiB year,
according to Wm. Barber Haynes,
writing in "Outdoor .Life and
Recreation." . The latest bid for
the favor, of the sportsman is the
opening of part of that famous
salmon river, the Restigouche, to
any sportsman who can pay a sum
for a day's fishing. Heretofore, it
has been impossible for anybody
to fish the Restigouche unless he
rented fishing water for a term of
several years. Now the province
has made it possible for men in
ordinary circumstances to put up
money enough for the realization
of anglers' dreams���a week's fishing for.the salmon of the Restigouche in New Brunswick.
The season for salmon in New
Brunswick is from May 24���
September 30. In the Restigouche
River and ; its . tributaries, such
fishing is permissible from April 1
to August 15 only; the limit is
30 per week. The salmon season in
Nova Scotia is from February 1
to August 31.
Quebec's trout streams are many
and widespread, and are easily
reached making them deservedly
popular both with Canadian ;aiid
American fishermen. Satisfying
sport, is.,to be had in 'the. streams
in the Lake Edward district north
of Quebec City. The Province of
Quebec has a wealth of attractions
fo'r the sportsman. No portion of
t2&?azsrr/oN of y/wrz-Q p/zemrs
the North American continent is
more richly endow ed with fish and
game. The innumerable rivers,
streams, lakes and great stretches
of fore��t offer an almost bewildering selection to the man planning
a hunting, fishing or canoeing trip.
The trout season in Quebec province is from May 1 to September
30 for, speckled trout, and from
December 2 to October 14 for the
lake trout.
��� Ontario's most celebrated trout
country embraces rivers and
streams north of Lake Superior
whose names many anglers are
already familiar with. In this section special bungalow camps are
at your service, operated by the
Canadian Pacific Railway, they
afford every advantage of an outdoor life just slightly lightening
the hardships especially for those
who wish to have greater comforts
than a tent and- camp outfit
affords. The; season here opens
May 1. i; Distant fields are always
green, and distant streams appear
more green,/ while pools _ grow
darker, as imagination pictures
fishing days in spring.

Local Printing History
Chicago, July 5th, 1928.
The Editor The Ledge,
Sir:
In a history of printing in
America, in the preparation of which I
am now engaged, I should-like to make
an accurate statement regarding the
beginnings of the press in Greenwood,
and I appeal to" the older residents
to answer for me, as fully as possible,
the following questions:
1. When was the first printing done
in' Greenwood, and by -whom?
2. What were the first newspapers
published   in   Greenwood,   and
, what the dates of their issues?
3. Where.are the best files of these
papers preserved? Or what individuals   own   copies   of ' the
���*""     earlie'sHssues?    ""   ���-"-"    yy
4. What was the title of the first
pamphlet or book printed in your
. community, the date of its pub-
��� lication, and the name of its
printer? Where may a copy be
found?' Similar information regarding other early publications
is also desired.
5. Has there ever been published,
and'1'if so, when and where, any
article on "or reminiscences regard early'printing'and publishing in Greenwood? *
Apart from- answers to these questions, I shall also be much interested
in any records or reminiscences regarding early local printers and their
work.
,'Anyone having such information will
render a useful service to local history
by putting it now. in the form of a
letter addressed to me at 2039 Lewis
Street, Chicago, 111, The courtesy will
be cordially appreciated and the information will be assured of preservation in permanent form.
Yours   sincerely,

the welfare of man's dumb friends.
The S. P, C. A. is performing a work
essential lo the maintenance of civilization. For the. very essence of our
civilization is the protection of life's
weaker and more helpless entities.
The process of evolution was the
process of weeding out thc weak. The
process of civilization is the process of
protecting and Raising the weak.'
The S. P. C. A. devotes itself to the
problem of improving animal shelter,
lo' reducing abuse ancl illtreatment of
animals and to the general education
of the public into a consciousness of
tho dumb animal's helpless plight.
It is a heroic and essential work,
and the people of .Vancouver should
be proud to assist in it. ���Vancouver

Where Are the Signs
of a Coming Change?
To The Electors of
Grand Forks - Greenwood Riding:
A number of Conservatives electors have been kind enough to state
that, even though the Government might be changed, they want to see
me re-elected. To such people I wish to give the assurance that, from
all indications, there is no probability of a change taking place.
Compare this contest with the General Election
of 1916 or 1924.
Do you not recall the intense interest taken in those campaigns by
people of all cllasses. The whole population was aroused;. meetings
were uneasy and disorderly. Jn 1916 the attitude of the people everywhere in British Columbia was.an unerring advance notice that THEY
WERE GOING TO HAVE A CHANGE. In 1924 great excitement again
prevailed. A new party, headed by General A. D. McRae, entered the
field and the people were "worked up" into a feverish state of mind over
the public issues. IT LOOKED LIKE A CHANGE THEN���but no
change came.
What do we find today? A very polite and modest campaign indeed:
No sign of undue bitterness; no suggestion of scandal. To those who
clamour "it is time for a change" the voice of the people seems to give
the answer ��� ��� - ��� ~
"You Have Had All The Change That You Need"
It was. on July 18th, 1927, that Hon. "J. D. MacLean was chosen to ���
head our Government. IN ONE YEAR, UNDER MANY DIFFICULTIES, HE HAS DONE WELL. He has added "New Blood" to his .
Cabinetr^and his selections have been wisely made. IS HE NOT
ENTITLED TO A CHANCE TO CARRY ON? WHAT REASON IS
THERE TO SUPPOSE THAT A CHANGE-ANY KIND OF. A
CHANGE-WOULD GIVE THIS PROVINCE A BETTER GOVERNMENT? RUSSIA WANTED "A CHANGE", in 1917: IT GOT A
CHANGE! ' * -.
The people who think that a change is coming on July 18th are
simply hiding their heads in the sand and ignoring the signs. A few
weeks ago it was suggested that Reeve A. K. MacLean would run as Con- -
servative candidate in Burnaby Riding. WHAT WAS HIS ANSWER'"
HE PUBLICLY STATED THAT HE WOULD NOT RUN AS AN OPPONENT OF THE MACLEAN GOVERNMENT, NOR OTHERWISE
ENDORSE THE DEMAND FOR A CHANGE.
A few days ago at North Vancouver ALDERMAN BRIDGMAN, a"
life-long Conservative, and REEVE VINSON, Conservative candidate in
1920. TOOK THE PLATFORM IN SUPPORT OF HON. IAN MACKENZIE AND THE MACLEAN GOVERNMENT. THESE MEN PUBLICLY STATED THAT THEY WOULD PLACE THE INTEREST OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA BEFORE THOSE OF THELR OWN PARTY.
In 1924 there were something like 28 candidates in the field in Vancouver���including a full slate of Labor men and a full slate of Provincials. WHAT IS LABOR DOING THIS TIME? TWO MEN ONLY
IN THE FIELD.   WHAT IS THE EXPLANATION?
The explanation is that Labor is supporting the
MacLean Government.
Do these facts" look like indications of a
coming change? '
We note some additional "wild statements" being made by or in
behalf of the Conservative candidate. "Contractors were paid as high as
$6 a yard for rock work on Fraser Canyon road,"."Contractors who built
Fraser Canyon road made millions out of it," "The sub-contractors were
paid starvation prices," etc., etc.
MY ANSWER TO SUCH STATEMENTS IS THIS:   As a member of
tho House and as a member of the Public Accounts Committee I am ;
familiar with all the facts in these matters and
Such Statements As Above Are Absolutely False.
Such Conservative members as Messrs. Pooley, Twigg, MacKenzie,
and Jones served with me on the Public Accounts Committee. Any
criticisms they made were fully answered by the Minister of Public
Works.
It should be rembered that the Fraser Canyon Road was built for
long distances directly over the .C.P.R. main line and the Contractors
were responsible not only for any damage that might be done to the
railway company's line and equipment, but also for any delay to traffic.
A VERY EXPENSIVE ORGANIZATION, AS WELL AS MUCH EQUIPMENT, WAS REQUIRED TO HANDLE THIS JOB AND THE SUBCONTRACTORS WERE NOT OBLIGED TO SHOULDER ANY OF
THE RESPONSIBILITY.
,    A FINAL WORD
I have served this District to thc best of my ability during the past
three years. I have tried to serve all the, people���not merely those of my
own party. These years have brought me valuable experience and I ani
absolutely convinced that *
This District Has Everything To Gain And Nothing
To Lose By Supporting Me.
r    Even though the much talked-of "change" should come���wliich I
cannot believe will be the case���I feel satisfied that this District would'
not suffer by having elected me as its representative.   I am accustomed
to "WORKING IN HARNESS"; when the election is over I want to
again deal,with the affairs of the public
As A Matter Of Business.
THERE ARE TOO MANY "PUBLIC MEN WHO "PLAY POLITICS"
FROM ONE YEAR'S END TO ANOTHER. Such men do not deserve
the support of the people.
To men and women of ail shades of political thought I make this
appeal for support on July 18th. THIS IS YOUR BUSINESS, and if you
think I am capable of attending to it, it is your duty to support me.
Thanking you again for past favours.

AFTER MANY YEARS
Time rolled back a third of a century for many citiaens of the Fraser
Valley centre, Saturday nigt, at Mission City. Many years ago one of the
most popular and successful young
teachers in the public school was John
Duncan MacLean. His pupils always
said he had the knack of "explaining
things so you could understand them."
Saturday night many of these former
pupils, now men of business or mothers
cf families, assembled with the crowd
that filled the Masonic hall to hear, the
premier of British Columbia.
Back at school once more they sat
spellbound as their old teacher revealed
to them the vision which holds him to
iiis high task as head of the provincial
government. -_-<���.
Vividly as he narated the achievements of his administration,-they recalled that gift, cf "explaining things
so that you. could understand them."
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Walmsley of
Greenwood were visitors to Grand
Forks on Saturday evening.    ,
Orville Winter, who. suffered a severe
injury in 'the face as result of the vicious-attack of tin Italian.at-.Rossland
on Thursday of last week,' reached
home on Tuesday for a visit.
Harold Mclnnes_ has been appointed
by the attorney-general to-be police
magistrate at Trail during" the absence
of Noble Binns. 'He fills the.: vacancy
Donald McDonald, who resigned because of his being a candidate in the
provincial election for Rossland-Trail
constituency.
A Dance will be held in the Grange
Hall, Toroda,' on Saturday,; July 28th;
Bush's orchestra will be: in attendance.
All who attend are assured of a good
time.
