In British Columbia we have rumors  of contests and withdrawals from contests; here  ������   and there some show of a fight, but it is a weak  and dispirited Opposition that  faces the  solid  phalanx of the McBride Government these days.  All-this for want of s leader with principles snd  of strong character.  Some think brains carry further than character in a leader, and this is where  the Liberal party are falling down today.  That they have plenty of men with brains, no  one can doubt, but that when it comes to high  character with strong convictions and sound principles to back them, this is where they fall down  before the sovereign people.  King Demos, who rules today, is not quite such  a fool as many would like to think; on the. contrary, he is often as hard-headed and harder than  the rest of us, snd knows right well in the present  contest which party is likely to be of most benefit  to his class snd for the strong development of the  country.

One can see by  watching the process, adopted Bow it is that wood  block paving has fallen in to some disfavor here.  Sufficient care is not taken with the under bed  of concrete. It's one thing to get a good bite on  the block, but such rough finish as is.being use A  will reproduce, itself in the upper paving, 6nce<  the cushion of, sand is disturbed' Again, no selection or passing for use or rejection of the bloeks  is attempted.

Congratulations to J. EL Vickers & Co., th������  well-known Vancouver contracting firm, who have  been swarded the contract for the new C. P. R.  roundhouse snd boiler shops at Coquitlam, round  about $40,000. This, is* tbe first instalment of the"  large works that will ^ultimately .be put up'there  in the course of time, -bu������ all real estate owners  cannot make a fortune> out Oof one such place as  Coquitlam. Both this and Port Mann has been  pretty .well discounted, and it, would be wise to  give them both a rest pro tern.'  Messrs. Vickers & Co. have been the low tenderers also for the Surrey municipal liall and have  their hands pretty full for the time'being. I am  more than pleased with their success, ss they have  had to face some tough competition of the American variety peculiar tb Vancouver.  Straightforward dealing snd plain honesty will  always' put & rogue down in the long run, and  Messrs. Vickers & Co. will shortly be exposing in  court a slim specimen of Yankee cute tactics as I  have met with-r-and I have had some doped out in  my time- The old story-������-the better you treat s  man or. a rogue, rather, the more he' turns,and  bites the hand he onee fed out of.  South Vancouver sshool trustees mide a tactical,  error in flouting the B.> C. Society of Architects  over the school edmpefit^ai plans, ss this society  now numbers over w.members composed of gentlemen who are Being constantly eonsulted about  building locations hy clients who have not full  knowledge of a particular district, and it is hardly  to be expected that these architects will "unduly  press the claims of South Vancouver when there  are equally desirable locations to- choose from.  The whole matter arose from a misunderstanding,  ss when the council called for plans they bad no  knowledge of any kind of rules which govern such  competitors.v It was up to the B. C. S. A. to  inform all local bodies of what are the true ethics  in such matters and to forward,a set of proposed  {rules for holding such public competitions. In  the absence of such, South. Vancouver erred in  error.  The members of our own council were also in  error in turning down the school trustees' "cut"  of $5,000 as an "insult," after the trustees had  spent many hours trying to find every possible  saving. Mr. Thomas Puke took a very manly  open course by publicly declaring, his desire to  refuse further "insults" of that kind.  The truth of the matter is that our beautiful  system of single tax, which is only a bundle of all  other taxes, is gradually leading'the city into  financial deep water. At all events one very  desirable cut was quite overlooked, which would  have been immensely popular, and that is to have  cut down the aldermen's salaries to the old figure.  So far ss oneisould gather, the council had only  the teachers' salaries to fall back upon, and of  that sum the Provincial Government furnish  $460.00 for each teacher, which it is well for the  ratepayers to remember.  The New, Timers' Jjeague is sn organization that  promises well for the banding together of many  thousands of new settlers here wno in the past  have been rather "out of it" -invniaii(y> vital'matters.- One thing 1 am-in hearty accord with them,  and that is to stop this everlsstring tinkering with  the municipal constitution. That such a course  cannot but be harmful to Vancouver is hardly  open to doubt. t I came across one firm's representative who has a million dollars invested here,  snd he says not another cent would have' been  sent this way from that source had the commission  nonsense gone through.  A cable was dispatched to England the moment  the Government decision was known, that it could  nOt pass the last session, and Vancouver may be  congratulated from having escaped a very awkward piece of business, as it was intended to fight  the charter right up to the Privy Council as being  a violation of constitutional law.   .'���������<"." ���������  I have received ihe valuable and well-bound  Vol. 1 of the Conservation of Canada���������Water  Powers���������which is a most useful addition to our  knowledge on the subject, besides a host of maps  and splendid information.

(Continued from page 1)  vince in the Dominion, Or anv STATE IN THE  UNION." "Vancouver Daily Sun." Andyetthe  "Sun" has been rearing and tearing around at a  most tragic rate for some time past. ,; It rails  against the present government and tetis its^readers that our Province is going to the Bo\r-wows.  With loud shouts and terrific calls, it tells the  electors to support Mr. Ralph Smith, Alderman  Enright and BRUCE with votes enough to put,  them into the provincial legislature- ' He says:  "Send us down, and then Ave will change things  at Victoria." Yes. they would change things. But  what a change! The "Sun" has informed the  public that British Columbia's "Credit is Better  than that of Other Provinces and States." Then  what is the "Change" that Bruce. Alb*. Enright  and   Mr. ' Ralph   Smith would work?   He says,  "Send Us Down."    And the   electors, answer:  "Yes, we will send you DOWN."  ,.  Mr. Ralph Smith and His Political History.  Vancouver electors cannot readily forget the  past history of Mr. Smith. ^He stood for continuing Manitoba as a post-st&mp, unless that province -would submit to tne unjust demands of  Laurier and his foreign masters. He stood for the  unjust treatment of the two new prairie provinces  when they were forced to make provision for in*-  ternal foreign rule. No, we cannot forget Mr.  Smith's political history. And further: - Even  now he is advocating free trade, thus showing  that, if he could get into the,right spot, he would  make an attempt to give1 our natural resources  awsy to foreign exploiters- He would, in following an abstract wilto'-fne-wisp,������grent free trade  to any and all comers, even "though they would  keep up a high trade wall against Canada. Let  him spend his energies in tsking s concrete world  ss it is. The nations insist on trade protection.  Let Canada have the good sense that she has  shown, and hold to equal terms with the rest of  the world. But if Mr. Smith wishes to talk FREE  TRADE, let him do so in relation to the.various  nations within the British Empire. This is the  realm or practical free trade politics,1 TKte,  aeademic, abstract, useless dreaming about world  free trade is not in good taste, especislly after the  votej of last, September.s <'  The Solid Five Must Go to Victoria Again.  There can be no doubt that the highest interests  of Vancouver and the Province can best be served  by sending back the FH|5 who have so ably  represented the city of/Vancouver in the past.  They are all experienced men, and are" devoted to  the welfare of the general interests of their riding  as well as of the whole pjroylnee. Each of these  FIVE has certain strong opposition. Hence those  who wish go^d government should cast their votes  for the- whole ticket, otherwise tnere is a danger  of dropping out some of the best available material of the Conservative party for some of the  worst,of the Liberal party.  'While'many'would'be glad to see two or three  more in opposition, still fo would be a most dangerous policy to attempt to give effect to such a  desire/ There is no way of regulating such a wish,  for what might be attempted in one riding aught  be attempted in all where elections are under way.  Hence those who wish to continue a strong, upright, fearless, wise administration should support  the "Solid Five"       > \  The Provincial Jdbersl Party.  Even though we are in the midst of sn election,  one must take time to express his appreciation of  the wisdom snd manliness of the best of the Liberal party. It, is a fact, and well known, that the  best and wisest of Liberals are sick and tired of  tbe course adopted by the Heeler class, the extreme and anarchic element now largely in control.  This'accounts for the fact that so few. good men  'could be bad to take up the.banner at this election. 1 One must honor Mt; Smith for his big-  hesrtedness in acceding'to the continued call for  his nomination. There can be no doubt that he  would gladly have kept out of the fray, but fidelity and devotion to his political friends forced him  to accept**-, .mj '���������  But all observers know that'the Liberals are  badly wrecked, and are "at outs" among themselves.. The causes are many, but there are two,  gerhsps, more important than the others. They  ave the habit Of taking on a lot of the most extreme and dangerous elements to be found. An'  old name is that so well known and so often used.  "Radical" is the word. But extreme disruption^  ist, anarchist, opportunist, is a better term. These  force themselves upon the Liberals, or are invited  into the Liberal ranks. In' any esse they are  there, and they never give or permit ssue government. They are the curse of the party and of all  lands. Let the Bound LIBERALS drive them out,  snd what they thus get rid of will be replaced by  ten times the number of wiser and safer men-  Hosts annually pass over to the Conservatives because of this very fact.  The other important factor, and to some extent  a natural child of the first, is this: The mass of  the Liberal papers, which are Supposed to reflect  the opinions and convictions of the party, have  too low an Imperial platform. They are always  ready to take on any kind of change or principle  that would separate Canada, or Australia, or any  other British possession from the MOTHER  COUNTRY. Every observant reader knows this  fact. The "World" and "Sun" in Vancouver are  no exceptions. They delight to write sarcastically  and belittlingly of every attempt, to increase our.  Imperial bonds, and to strengthen'.the EMPIRE  as a. whole. '. ,"��������� x!%  And as long as they so belittle this determination to make Greater Britain still greater, tnen so  long will they continue to drive ironY their, ranks  the beslt men of their party. -; Vy  I ajpuld mention scores of good Liberals Who-  reluctantly withdrew from the party because of  this very thing. I listened to an aged man from  Ontario, a few days ago, as he told of Sever having cast a vote for a Conservative. He is seventy.-.  |,nine years of age. But lo, he is growing so sick,  -of his party press on this,very matter,that b^e has  written to the Premier of Ontario, saying that ihef  lias determined to give him his support;   ���������.    .  This is crucial, and cannot be winked at, or cast  aside with a sneer. Tens of thousands have left,  the Grit party because of this. Cannot they do  something not only to hold their best men, but to  ���������win from their enemies' ranks? I write these  words in all sincerity, and do so on the grounds  of public interest. But "BRUCE" and the  "World" will not take it "to.heart. Bruce is too  much taken up with "Raffles," and the World is  too fond of Mr. Taft and the L W. W. to reform.  There is more heroism in a smiling face .some-  'times than in half of the deeds that are chromfeled  in battle. There may be more self-mastery in  thejloirrg of quiet duty than in the scourging of  ;a ���������wliole calendar of saints.    , -  tMtMIWWWHtMHll I'l I   ***4*********** ***** ***** **  Mo Dallvary  HoCradil  '\  I   PuM8tMnMI1621  is starts tstl   __  At *f an us**** st  ssllisif ail sssk*  k**fj*i  Oar Salurday'a Spoolalar  MEATS  Local Shoulder Lamb -        - %  Choice Pot Roast Beef        -        -  Fresh Pork Ribs       - -       .-  Foul - '      - -        ���������*  Swift's Premium Hams, whole or half  Swift's Premium Bacon, whole or half  fish  Fresh Halibut - -        -  Kippers -        -        -  Smoked Fresh Halibut     ^  -  16c per lb..

The answer to  that sppeal will depend upon two  things: the infpresvkm made upon the  ���������public by,the record of the government over which "Mr. McBride ha*  presided, and the character Otihe poller outnaed for the future. Di*eu������B-  ing the matter upon the������*>btoe> t*sne*  It would be well to look at-Uw-ont-  sttnding feature* of the policy which  haa, seen carried eu-. by, the government *lace 1MS;*1������4 to note It* effect  In developiiie, *j**fldtng, sag eurfch-  ing tn������ provinbei   \ '\  ' AflmlnUtratlsa e< the^ Law.

This act has been in force for  a year It has reduced drtmkeanese;  It has eliminated other crying evil*  "ol; the traffic, and has deprived law-  breaking licensee* of their license*.

The real work of any government  In British Columbia at the present  time Is to develop the province on  well-conceived .line*, looking ite ItB future greatness. Anyone who wJM take  the trouble to follow step by step tbe  unfolding of Premier McBride** plan*,  will realize that he i* content to build  slowly, ln order tha( be may build  aurely. Whether It be railway*, road*,  trails, bridge*, or public buildings, it  will be found that the variou* part*  fit into a comprehensive scheme and  are devised for the province and not  for a section.  "Th* Railway Policy.  The railway -policy which for two  year* has filled so large;' a share of,  the public attention, i* a policy content with nothing short of carrying  main trunk line* across the province,  and connecting the transcontinental  . railways with the extreme western  ports.  British Columbia is a province of  mountains, valley* and rlvera. ��������� The  mountain sides are clothed with timber or sprinkled with mineral wealth.  The valleys are bedded with fertile  'soil. Within a measurable, distance of  time alll. these sources of wealth will  be brought into ..reach of the steel  roadway; and it; will then be found  that British Colombia will have a network of railways:'.which-| will serve  every accessible point. '   ..'  -.���������������������������"'���������'���������"��������� Roads and Trails.  Meanwhile the preliminary work of  roads, traiis and bridges has engaged.  i the attention of'the" government, and  under the direction of an excellent  minister in the tion. Thomas Taylor,  a sum of money is being spent which  only a few years ago wOuld have seemed fabulous. 3*he amount appropriated this year 'is $8,000,0*0, a sum practically fifteen times the amount available when Mr. McBride first assumed  the reins of office. It Is no longer the  plough and the shovel which alone are  used In the construction of provincial  highways, but modern-mechanical appliances and:a free use of surfacing  material is giving the .public a far  better class of road. -Steel and concrete are replacing wood, and fn every  department the best expert advice is  being sought and tbe most up-to-date  plan* adppted.���������.--������������������-���������"*���������'?;._-'-  ������$l$j|l^yp^  tf  &  the -teel. *ml ta* stimuli es^ecet  iu approeeh a^ be wwu setei to  ^^.^^jf^^^*a  namber^dmrlng the laot Tfar to a sr  ���������*������  ^*e������el^  thai the sbAwX. raaway potter *4fl m������> >  docbtedly' lucmd* a r^lway (Sjsa*.  south, to say nothing of the ts>S������sj*>"..,  lag ooan**ttov with tae.O.

'���������  Montreal, March IB.���������A move on the  part of the city ot Chicago to divert  more water from Lake Michigan  through it* drainage canal ha* roused  the; ���������hlppiwj Interests of Montreal to  height* of great excitement, and pro-  toots fBpny al| rparto of Canada have  been e^rjng tnto: the offices of the  Shipping federation here demanding  that *tronk"Yeprejiehtatlon* be made  to tbe government at Ottawa in complaint of tlje plan* the American* are'  preparing to*put into effect to rob  Canada other; natural resources. %It  tp contended that if the idea of the  CMcajoan* 1* allowed to become a fact'  tbe depth of the water in the channel  from the great lakes-to Montreal will  be materially affected, The plana  have already been placed .before .the  United State* government at Washington, but owing to the opposition waged  by Canadian interest* no action-ha* a*  yet' been taken on Ihem. Since than,  the Canadian' government has/am  nounced that nothing can be done un?  til .the'International Waterway*.Com-  missibn ha* given it* sanction, and thw  Canadian section of that conunl-Btoft  ha* inferred that Canada's rights will  1>e amply safeguarded when-1 It comes  to a show-down a* to whether the  water* of .the great lake* shall be uaeu  for swilling out Chicago's filth or for  bavigation pnrpose*.^  Unlike tbfi Long Sault dam question,  thl* proposition absolutely become*  a menace to navigation, for it diverts  waters from navigable channel* ana  never return* them. Injthe esse ot  the Long Sault no water is diverted,  and the completion'of the plan* would  actually be aa aid rather than if bint  drance to navigation. The ' Chicago  people want to divert 6,000 additional  second feet of water from the lake*.  As the water level* of the graet lakes  tot *ome years past have beep below  normal level, and as navigation has,  been extremely difficult, rCanadlan  ���������hipping interests consider the Chicago application extremely dangerous to.  the Dominion. Through the Ambassador at Wasni'ngton tbe hearings of the  esse have been postponed until March  ~ rwben It 1* expected that, a large  array of Canadian legal talent will present itself at the United States capital  to put forwards Canada's claims/  tending to follow it through 'life.

The, difficulties connected with the question  have often been discussed. They have  their origin in conditions, some of  which.are peculiar to Quebec with Its  population divided into two section* by  differences in language, and some ot  which are coaimon to most communities in English-speaking North America. Men have practically abandoned  the ancient and honorable profession,  and even In the cities, where the pay  ia highest, more would be employed if  they were readily available. ' Young  women have charge, not only of most  of the classes, but of most of the  schools. From various .causes^ however, young women do not as a rule  choose    teaching as a profession, in-  rlaing enormously year by year, accord  Ing to a report completed at 'the city1  hall and forwarded to the board ot  control.   /; '  i '���������. fThe main cause* of the Increase in  the diBesseT Say* hue, report, "are al-  coboV immorality, Increasing struggle  for existence, privation* and poverty."  Continuing, the report Bhows that  there were incarcerated in the Longue  Pofnt* and Verdun asylum* 422 more  patients In 1911 than In 1910. Equally  striking are the figures showing what  the care of the afflicted has cost the  city since 1894. In that year the cost  to tbe city was $8,365.58; in 1906, $41,-  986.22; In 1910. $69,403.56; In 1911.  t74.5Bf.Vr.  tbe situation I* ������uch that a thorough  investigation 1* to be made by the city  to tborosghly study existing' condition*. ~  Quebec MJn*r*l Output.������'  An a4xsace statement of the mine^  a} production of the province of Quebec In. the year 1911 gives the total  value as 18,567,000.

Want Commission Control.  ' The Board of Trade has renewed Its  movement toward having the Inter-  coionial Railway placed under the  jurisdiction of the Canadian Railway  Commission, on a parity with the Other  Compsny-owhed Canadian railways,  and thl* time it has sent a memorial  to the Senate asking that they support  this idea. This has been urged by the  Board of Trade on several: occasions  since 1909 without success. But at* a  recent meeting of the Board of. Trader  Council a report was sent in that the  executive committee, noting that this  question had been taken up by tbe  Senate, had sent an address praying  that the Upper House would support  their memorial of last November to  the Minister of Railways and Canals,  urging that the government railway be  .placed under the control of the Railway Commission. It was understood  that this matter was to be introduced  to the Senate by Hon. j. P. B. Cas-  grain.  As many other public bodies are of  the same opinion aB Montreal's Board  ot Trade, and as a-concerted effort is  being made to bring pressure to bear  upon the government, it is not considered' unlikely that the desired result  will be obtained.

J. Kerr, president ot  tbe' Canadian Highway Association,  said: .'  "It cannot be regarded as good  economy to build roads without making suitable provision to maintain and  to keep them in a proper state of repair. Municipalities' undertaking the  construction of good roads sbonld carefully face this responsibility. It is not  one ot an alarming character in point  of ^soBt, any more than i* the cost ot  construction; for ft has been found  that a system of main road*, can be  built and" maintained In any community without burdensome taxation.  A system of continuous maintenance  should be adopted, in every county  whereby road* will betepafred a* soon  a* holes or wheel tracks commence,  ao that the "more rapid wear of irutted  and uneven road Surfaces'will not follow. tA.-      ���������>     .  "By placing one man dn a section of  road," with cart, horse, a pick and  pounder, and a few, simple tools, with  a quantity of broken stone at' hi* disposal, roads can be systematically  maintained for all time in "good' condition. Similar results follow from  keeping a crew of men constantly engaged under a superintendent, working  systematically over a fixed mileage of  road, with a steam roller, grader, and  the necessary road metal for resurfacing. Important parts of maintenance  are the cutting of grass and weeds on  the roadside, the annual cleaning of  ditches, and removing the > shouiders<  that are. continually forming at the  edges of the road frofn the accumulation of dust."  The first of these maintenance gangs  Is now at' work on tne old Mill Bay  road, now known a* Shawnlgan drive,  part of the Island highway which run*  from Victoria to Nanalmo.

LETHBRIDGE, Alberta, Canada,  March 20.���������The Canadians, who for  three years past have been capturing  nearly all of ' the silver cups and  valuable' prizes at the Dry-Panning  Congresses at Billing*, Spokane and  Colorado Springs,, have got to look to  their laurels this fall, for the Spokane  Chamber of Commerce is going to  :ndeavor 'to re-capture all that silverware and some more besides, according to the entries and space reservation* mad* for that organisation at  the International Dry-Farmed Product* Exposition, to be held at Lethbridge October 2146. '���������  Daniel Morgan, financier and banker of Spokane* is the organiser of tnlB  movement to gfve the Canadian*  "a big run tor their money/,' and he  is one of the. most energetic men on  the Board of Trustee* of the Spokane  Chamber ot Commerce. Aa chairman  ot the agricultural, horticultural and  dairying committee of that organisation, Mr. Morgan is making thing*  hum, according to all report*. He  has stirred i.up the growers'of world  prize winning grain in Alberta and  Saskatchewan by his announceSaent,  and thef are'thl* early preparing .to  grow atUt better grains than heretofore, and som* are now devoting their  evening* porting' seed with' microscope*- by oil lamp*.  In a statement issued thl*.week,  following a'meeting of the trustees of  the Spokane Chamber et Commerce,  at which a large appropriation was  made to meet the expense of gather-  ins aa.e-tt-.tblt, Mt. Morgan aald:  "We are going in strong foreVery-  thing In sight at the.big Dry-Farming  Special Contributions  i     I,, .   -    - - "i  LACK OF PRODUCTION AND HIGH  COST OF LIVJNG.'  -,.'    /  Nothing further has'been heard of  the city's lou*d trumpeted enquiry tato  this vital subject, anb\we,take tt!taat  it has died a natural death. That Is  the way with all theBe propo-ala.  People' get out and shout for iii. single  tax or a board of commission, and  lithen very soon all public intajreat begins to wane and other men tr^de on  the' apathy of the people. I hope'thfc  :ly hint given last week a* to the  city council'* own responsibility in  the .matter of high prices might <be  traced has not had the effect of: heading off the local enquiry.  In an earlier article I spoke ot the  influence of money and bariklng on  orlces.  That is a part of the subject require* to be better understood.  We need to have bankers and]  others who have a grasp of the whole  subject, and I am told there is one  banker In Vancouver who i* a past  master on thl* topic���������give us by means  of public lectures the full fruits ot  their observation, reading and experience.  The whole question is not even fully,  understood by our, greatest scholars  and but dimly seen Into by'our wisest  statesmen.
