M���- of Kettle Valley, and Mrs. A. C.
Hamilton, of Golden. The sympathy

Looking forward to the day when
British Columbia will supply Canada's
great prairie grain belt with the fertilizers necessary to maintain the present richness of its soil, the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of
Trail, has moved in Victoria to secure
permanent rights to vast phosphate
deposits in the Fernie district. The
company, it was announced at the
mines department on-Saturday, is acquiring leases to cover forty square
miles of territory on the Elk river, not
far from Fernie, where phosphates can
be recovered in enormous quantities
and manufactured into fertilizer.
Behind this move is a scheme of
national importance, in effect the restocking of Canada's richest, agricultural areas, which can not go on producing grain year after year without
the use of fertilizer in quantities not
used anywhere in the world yet. In
securing control of deposits from which
this fertilizer can be manufactured, the
Consolidated is looking to the future
when the prairie farmer will have.to,
renew his soil with some economic form
of fertilizer not obtainable on a big
scale at present.
Manufacturer of fertilizer from the
phosphate deposits of the Fernie district is another of the extraordinary
chemical processes which have made
the company's Trail smelter one of the
��wonders of the mining world. .In effect,
-it is proposed to use a product now
wasted at Trail to turn the phosphates
into a substance which will build up
' soil when it becomes exhausted from
continual  production   of  grain.   This
used in metallurgical work in the' smel
ter. Combined with the phosphates of
the Fernie district it makes a substance extremely valuable as a fertilizer.
An experimental shipment of the fertilizer already has been made to the
prairie provinces so that its substance may be tested under actual grain
growing conditions. This material was
prepared at Trail, but it is presumed
that when the project is established
on a permanent basis a plant to manufacture it will be established near the
phosphate deposits. Then only the sulphuric acid would have to_ be shipped
from tlie smelter to the manufacturing centre, and the balance to tlie
prairies through the Crow's Nest Pass
would be relativedly short.
The mosquito is rampant this year.
A nuisance in the cities, it is a calamity
in the rural districts. It makes life
miserable for both man and beast.
The fact that this plague only
descends on this part of the world at
intervals, and is not to any extent an
annual visitation, is a poor consolation
when the bad year comes. But that is
prdbably at the root of failure to
~ initiate some _ effective measures towards mosquito control. The discomforts of one bad season are soon forgotten. ucIf they were repeated year
after year public opinion would insist
on action.
Practical elimination of the mosquito pest is only a matter of money,
and it would be money well spent from
every angle. The cost would be more
than met in direct savings to the agriculturists, to say nothing of making
life sweeter during the time when, but
for the'pestilential prober, life in the
country would be at its best.���British

A Natural Preference
An election story often told in British parliamentary circles had its origin
in a meeting, between Sir Henry
Bentlnck, the Tory leader, and a farmer.' To Sir Henry's pleadings for support the farmer replied:
"Vote for you? I would sooner vote
for the devil!"
"But," replied Sir Henry suavely, "in
the event of your friend not standing?"
DR. J. D. MacLEAN, Premier
TWELVE years of social reform and continued
advancement under Liberal administration have
brought forward Dr. MacLean as our Man of the Hour.
He has been intimately associated with every measure
of reform during twelve strenuous years of office as Provincial Secretary, Minister of Health, Minister of
Finance, Minister of Education and Premier of British
The Liberal Government has kept faith with the working people who build the prosperity of this country.
The Liberal Government has a record of achievement
with which no other administration has ever come
before the electorate.
Are we going to let Dr. MacLean continue the policy
that is making our Province famous, that is bringing
dollars and cents to every workingmari and woman in
British Columbia?
Are we going to accept the record of the Liberal Admin-
istmtion^and show  them our   confidence   ky_again
reposing in them the trust they have so completely
proved themselves worthy of and able to carry on?
Twelve years have given the Government a complete
grasp of the needs of the common people of this Province. Is it likely that this knowledge will benefit these
people if an untried number of men have to start all over
again at Victoria ?
Something accomplished, something done, has marked
twelve years of Liberal Administration. As voters,
we know what has been done for us, and appreciate it
We approve of Dr. MacLean's P. G. E. Policy. .. . we
know that further reductions in taxation will follow....
and that Dr. MacLean has pledged himself and his Government to develop the agricultural area and natural
resources of this Province.
It is a natural and human thing for us to show our appreciation and gratitude for these accomplishments.... to
show our approval of Dr. MacLean's policy of progressive and constructive legislation by returning him
to power on July 18th and electing the Liberal can-
didates to support him.

to February 15th; modernized canneries, 83
in number, and sane Federal Fishing Laws,
carefully administered, are the foundation of
an industry that will continue to grow.
The fame of British Columbia's Whaling
Fisheries is of long standing, and has materially
increased the value of the products from this
industry. The yearly catch, now about 400, is
taken between  one  station  on  Vancouver
-waters^andtheextentand ruggedness of our
coast make organized protection and. admin-,
istration extremely costly. .'���':���.
But the safeguarding of our fisheries is a
matter which now commands the earnest
attention of our government, who realize the
importance of conserving this basic industry.
As the oldest industry of our Dominion,
fishing has been one of the largest revenue
producers, and it is significant that Canada's
youngest Province, in less than twenty years,
should secure a leading,position in the world
market. This aggressive search for, forei-in
business has been an asset which undoubtedly
has created one of the most amazing records
of our basic industries. Well may we be proud
of our Fisheries! .      - ;

work consists mainly in the exposure of slides: at different altitudes and at different locations.
These aeroplane exposures attempt to collect from altitudes of
from 1,000 to 5,000 feet the date of
the0 earliest appearance of rust
spores, the region over which they,
��� first appear, the rate at which the
spore content of ..the air increases
over various regions, the visibility
of:, spores caught at these higher
altitudes and the relation of certain environmental and climatic
factors to the rate of development
and spread of rust. Tightly stoppered bottles are used, containing
wooden paddles to which are attached microscopic slides lightly
smeared with vaseline. These
slides are exposed for 15 minutes
at varying altitudes; the slides replaced in the bottles and then returned to the Government labors*

Less than seven days after leaving the shipper in London, England, four packages of merchandise
totalling forty two pounds in
weight were recently delivered to
the consignee in London, Ontario.
This achievement was efleo'ted by
the Canadian Pacific Express in
the regular air express service
maintained in connection with the
trans-Atlantic liners entering and
leaving the St. Lawrence.
* In the forenoon on Saturday the
packages left London and were
placed aboard the "Empress cf
Australia" sailing from Southampton at noon. The following Friday
they were trans-shipped from the
vessel to a plane at Rimouski and
speeded towards Montreal. Less
than three hours afterwards at the
St. Hubert airfield outside^ of
Montreal the express was transferred to another machine t and
carried on to Toronto. Arriving
here in the evening, seven hours
after leaving Rimouski the packages were picked up by another
airplane at the Leaside field and
taken to London.        <
The Canadian Pacific are pioneers in air express in Canada,
having service under, a special
tariff in connection with incoming
and outgoing trans-Atlantic liners
in the St Lawrence River.
Not only is express to and from
Europe greatly expedited by this
arrangement, but domestic express shipments make constant use
of the bi-weekly service between
Ottawa and Montreal, Toronto
and Montreal, and down the St.
Lawrence to Rimouski, that thus
serves two purposes. Express
moving east or west between these
points may be greatly speeded in
delivery in this manner, and put
considerably ahead of ordinary express matter unaided by this
auxiliary. Merchants have made
use of the Canadian Pacific Express Air Service to ship articles of
every description, from flowers to
motion picture film.
KIDNAPPED" aboard the old
Elder-Dempster liner Mount
Royal when* the ship was commandeered by His Majesty's forces
as a horse transpoit, during the
Boer War, a boy of ten spent two
glorious years on the high seas.
District Passenger Agent of the
Canadian Pacific Railway at Vancouver, B.C., and his adventure
was recalled by old photographs
recently unearthed in England. .
Memories of Kitchener and of
the Boer War are recalled by the
discovery of the photographs. The
���snap-shot on the ceritershows Mr.
Daly at the age of ten years on the
back of Kitchener's favourite
charger. This was taken on board
the S.S. "Mount- Royal": .of the
Elder ( Dempster Line at Cape
Town, South Africa," during the
Boer War, when the vessel was
requisitioned by the Government
for the transport, of horses. The
oval on the left shows thc boy on
the biidge of the ship.
Captain James A. Murry, captain of the ship, is seen holdingthe
horse's -head. He was later Commodore-Captain of the_"Empress
of Britain", and other~stoamsliips
of the Canadian Pacific fleet, after'
the Elder Dempster Line was taken
over by them. He was killed in;
the great Halifax explosion during
the Great War. .
The Boer War involved exciting
adventures for the ten year old
boy; He was on board as guest of,
the captain at the time the war
broke out, and the vessel was impressed into Government service
as_a horse transport. They sailed
for Cape Town with a load of
horses, expecting to return to
Liverpool   and   the   regular run
between the British Isles and
Canadian ports, after discharging
their cargo. The boat was ordered
off elsewhere, bowever, and not
until a year anjd a half had elapsed
did the lad return to his home, by
that time a seasoned mariner.
On one occasion during the time
"they were en war""service7ithe"men-
went on strike, and the "Mount
Royal" put into �� Barbados,
where the whole crew were placed
under arrest, and a black one
temporarily substituted. The
change was worse than before,
however, and the remainder of
that voyage to New Orleans was
made at a pace of not over six
miles per hour.

Canadian Pacific Railway-twenty-
two years; over twenty years of
whicli he.has spent in Vancouver. ~

To The Electors:
ore Reasons for a Change of
Government in B.C.
The Liberal Government has collected, in all forms of luxation,
sinco assuming oflice, 12 years ago, roughly, $184,000,000.00. This is
three times thc amount collected by the Conservative Administration
during their 13 years in oflice.   ���
Docs this mean tax reduction? Land taxes have been reduced to thc
level oi' Conservative times,1 after these had been doubled by the Liberals,
but an hundred new ways, or forms of taxation have been devised to
separate the taxpayer from his money.
In addition to 15180,000,000.00 collected in taxes, this Government has
borrowed $50,000,000, thus it has had $240,000,000 to,play with, since
assuming oflice.
There arc 40 Provincial Ridings in B.C. counting Vancouver and
Victoria each as one. The sum spent represents an average total
of $6,000,000, or $500,000 per annum for each, riding. Just try to find
what you have to show for. that vast expenditure.
Our Liberal friends take credit for all useful Social & Labour
Legislation, on our statute books, even ��� taking credit for the Workmen's
Compensation. Act passed at the last session of the Con. Administration,
Spring of 1916. ,.
Some valuable pieces of Social & Labour legislation enacted by
Conservatives follows:
Mechanics Lien Act; Coal Miner's Regulation Act, i. c. thc
eight hour day for Coal Miner's.
Woodmen's Lien Act; Deceased workmen's Wages. Act, whereby
a widow can claim her deceased husband's wages for three
months back, regardless of other debts.
Eight hour day for smelter men. ~"
Shops Regulation Act, granting a half holiday weekly.   Also
an Act for the protection of Factory Employees by a system of .
Government  Inspection.   Also  an  Act  preventing  Children
being employed in factories.
' Inspection of places where Electricity is generated.
Medical Inspection of Schools.
MecL Inspection of Logging Camps, Mining Camps & Mills.
An Act for the maintenance of deserted wives.
An Act for the establishment of an Industrial Home for girls.
Inheritance Act, providing protection for widows.
Ah" Act providing for Official Guardianship for Infants.
An. Act Governing the Sale of Milk.
An Act Providing for Censorship of Moving Pictures.
An Act Providing First Aid & Ambulance Service by employers in Industries.
Even those who "don't drive cars are
surprised at the lack of care on the
part of some motorists. Here are some
simple rules the best of drivers should
1.. Keep your car right; see that the
brakes, steering gear and headlights
are in perfect working order.
2. Keep your eye on. the road and
your hands on the wheel.
3. In passing traffic, look ahead.
4. Ii a "road-hog" trios to pass
you���let him.
5. Entering main streets and highways���stop and listen.
6. Don't rush through or "loaf" in
heavy traffic.
7. Signal before you slow down,
stop, or change .your course.
8. Look before you back up.
9. Obey the "Stop" signal.
10. Watch your "Step"���Don't "step"
on the gas, the train will win.  .
1916.' Workmen's Compensation & Franchise for Women.
Consider thc above facts. Is it not true that the Conservatives,
during their term of oflice, provided much that makes for the happy
living conditions of today? And. this is not with blare of trumpets to
announce their good works, but as faithful workmen sent to Victoria to
do their best for the people they represented.
Yours Respectfully,
/      C.M.KINGSTON.

To The Electors of
Grand Forks - Greenwood Riding:
My Conservative Opponent has "again taken
his pen in hand" and in the June 29th issue of The
Grand Forks Gazette there appears some statements
over his signature which call for correction. Let
me deal with a few samples:
"The amount raised by taxes in the last year of Conservative rule was $6,906,783. The amount raised by
taxes last year under Liberal rule was $20,534,480, or
May I be permitted to point out that thc increase indicated by the
above figures is not 300% but 209%. It is also well to remember that,
while the* sum $6,906,783 was the Conservative Government's estimate
of its total revenue for its last year in office, its estimated (and actual)
last four years of that administration the deficits amounted to approximately $16,000,000.09. Which is the wiser course-^to collect sufficient
revenue to pay the ordinary costs of government as we go along or run
a sort of bargain-counter government, spending twice as much as we
collect and ruining ou.' credit as a province?
"The net debt of the province last year of Conservative
,rulc was $19,60���\000; last year, under Liberal rule,
Tho following summary of our funded debt situation shows how
"wide of the mark" the above figures are:
1917 1927

Increase in net funded debt $24,118,308
The correctness of the foregoing Statement is vouched for by. Mr. E.
D. Johnson, Deputy Minister of Finance���a man eminently fitted for his
position; a man so competent, in fact, that every session the .Opposition
assail the Government for not paying him more salary.
"Two miles of road near Revelstoke cost the shareholders $104,000."
The answer is that it was not 2 miles of road, but 22 miles.
My opponent affects to be startled by the fact that estimates of
government engineers are sometimes exceeded" by from .100 to 200 per
cent. Is hc not aware that this was even more common in the days
when our province-was ruled by the Conservative party than it is today?
Even private companies have the same difficulty. How is an engineer to
know positively the quantity, for example, of solid rock that will be
encountered in constructing a given piece of road? A road like the
Cariboo Highway (Fraser Canyon) is not constructed by merely writing
a prescription.
We have numerous cases in which public works are completed for
less than the estimated cost���but our opponents never tell the public of
these. Why not be frank and accuse Palmer Bros, of grafting on Public
Works Department contracts? May I inform the electors.that Palmer
: Bros, is one of the most reputable and reliable firms in this province.
So highly are .they regarded that last year eighteen municipalities
engaged them for municipal work.
In my earlier letters to the electors I have asked for a sane, well-
considered verdict on July 18th. British Columbia's future���and the
future of the Grand Forks - Greenwood District���are matters of greater
importance than the fate of any political party. To my mind it is wise
to return the MacLean Government because
Premier MacLean is the logical man to deal with
the Dominion Government in the matters of the Sale
of the P. G. E). Ry. and the Return of the Peace
River Lands;
The Return of the Railway Lands will bring
a revenue'to the Provincial Government of from
$350,000 to $500,000 per annum, wjiich can be,passed.

The provinces of Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and
Alberta have a combined public debt of over $560,000,000, with a
combined Sinking Fund amounting (1927) to only about $13,000,000.
British Columbia's net debt is less than one tenth of the above
figure���and our Sinking Fund is over $16,000,000.
An Answer To The First Crop Of Rumours
Political trouble-makers are trying to get votes for my opponent by
making statements such as the following:
"The work of improving the North Fork road will be shut
down immediately after the election".
ANSWER. The statement is false; the work will be
continued until the road is in proper shape for the business it is expected to handle.   ;'
"The work of cutting a trail up the West Fork, by the
Forest Branch, is simply an election job and the men
engaged thereon will be out of a job on July 19th."
ANSWER. There is no truth whatever in that statement. This work should last at least another couple of
months.   This election has nothing to do with it'.
