The political  \strife, has now begun in earnest and the Liberals  \1xe\j plucked up heart of grace to put up some  j kind of a ������ght.   Any old sort of fight is better  _>than none at all, but one wbuld think that more -  popular standard bearers could have been found  Lamong the rank and file-  Alderman Cameron will  [be best remembered as the one who saddled Vancouver with an engineer���������who has displaced a  much better local man.

Dissatisfaction seems pretty widespread among  jour local architects over the unsatisfactory terms  ifii the competition which Dr. Young has issued for  Rth'fe Point Grey University.

It seems mighty strange to'me  tthat gentlemen from over the border should evoke  [such a lively interest on how our Canadian cities  [are run or governed: I do not remember tp haye  [read of a bunch of Canadians running oyer to the  [States to hold forth on the way American* should  Iron their business jn civic affairs. ��������� ���������   ��������� * '    s  [(1 How comes it;, *hen, we have such a bunch! af  loranks spouting-off ''.referendum, initiative sjrd  [recall," as the psnaeea for ail human ills in oim?  taffajr*  the truv* of4he matter is that once an'-  fAmerican get������> new1o>a> o* what he im*gl*������sto  jbe a brand new one, lie is: never go happy, or amte  ippy5 until he has told everybody (dj������ aft about it  [i Speaking a short tip* ag������ tb ������ gentian who *  [was very active in promoting the commission form  Jof government, idea in Vancouver, J was surprise!

Take for instance the plank,"Public-owned Telep^to^irsystem.'' This is a bare, bald statement  but no policy is enunciated as to how this is to be carriedfout. We have long urged'that steps he  taken along this line, but the experience of Manitoba demonstrates that it cannot he dealth with  lightly, and if the Liberals are really serious, why have Itiiey no policy in this matter, clearly defined* And how is it that they have raver in the Housefaoved to that end? The answer is obvious���������they know that they have no chance of winning sf jean afford reckless general statements,  moment ago, aa to whether or not the province of ,. -  Ontario had been ^consulted with respect to *a\f'.y'-  line which will constitute the eiotera b*|lii4hl^ ^  - - .    *   line of the Province of IJanitohat.and the w^Kat^ritti  knowing fuU well that the weighty responsibility of givifg effect to these general statements will   \ ^a^ line of *w Proyfce* 0f Qniiti*. <% ;  never fall to their lot. - , f   mA������ _^ in A- -^ ^ J A_# ^.^ J^TSa. V  Altail^  Summary of Serial Story  \  Let us briefly ex&mioe some of their planks: "A Itailway to the Peace Rtvsr," the very  question on which Mr. McBride is appealing to the country. It has always been his policy,to submit all important matters to the people before definitelyjaunching the scheme and in the present  ease, the Peace River R. R. is the great problem and wor^r of consideration/ so in this respect the  Liberals are merely echoing the wisdom of Hon. Richard] McBride. '  "A white British Columbia���������and a Natal Act"���������Ttfhat a spectacle to behold the Grits of  B. C, howling about a "white B. C-," when their own party at (Htawa for years most assiduously  endeavored to make B. 6. "yellow." The Liberals at^Qttawa disallowed about 20 or 85 acts  passed by the B. C. Oovernment restricting Oriental immigration, among which was Mr. Bowser's famous Natal Aci. They went further���������*hey deliberately refused to pass a Dominion Act  along tbe lines of the Natal Act, in spite of the repeated advise of Jos. Chamberlain when secretary (  of Foreign Affairs, that they do so. This Was not all���������the Imperial authorities repeatedly nrged  the Dominion authorities to "resrve the right to control iii^Bigration," when signing the trej$p *  with Japan; but Sir Wilfred Laurier and his (Government Infused point blank. They were snjK'  ported by Ralph Smith and Hon. William Templeman^this action and have been endorsed % *  the Liberal party of B.-C* Still further���������the Liberal T>oaiinion Government sought to import  thousands of Japs and Chinese in 1908 to work on the G.fl\ P. and would have succeeded' bnl for  the intervention of Hon. Mr. McBride, and because ot|fttis action taken by the Conservatives  of B. C. in obstructing the efforts of the Q. T. Pacific to {bring fetfceaejfenrdes of Orientals, they  (the G. T. P.) have deliberately,delayed the' compiel  to Vancouver-   This policy has received the snppor  approbation of the B������ C. Liberal*. Sad the O. T.

The Canadian novelist, Clive Phillipps  Wolley, has produced characters strong and true  and genuine. Vnd hiB knowledge of British Columbia is ieyident from the treatment of the atmosphere in which he places men and the women  1-^fta;;|jfe[..^si^ to   delight   the reading  B������M������|y tbe story begins in this way:   Jim  ^pikha, the cowboy foreman of the Risky Ranch,  ^ind'iVoung Anstruther, a tenderfoot Englishman,  r^re both in Jove with Kitty <!liffo������d.   The party,  in chargroi Mrs. Holt, the wife of the owner of  ^eRisky, have met with bad weather, Whilst on-^  IhoUdaytrip. The rivalry between the two men is:  acute, though^ Jinii k^wing the ways of the country, has ������tfl^eib������Bt of it;  Wet through and over-  I taken by^tbe darkiiie^ they camp in an old log  hut,  making -tb*rts^Ve8;-':a8tonishingIy'vcomfort-  iAble by<a roaring can%firei  Anjivfed at home the.

In his description  of, the  ti*ie.  from  Soda  [Cree^,J Wolley gives a picture that of itself makes  the story worth the reading.

"fishery,protection afainst poaching, and restore fisbertes to white men." This plank is  another sample of the inconsistencies of the Liberals. Their own party has been in power at  Ottawa for 15 years, and have made the regulations which drove 10,000 white fishermen out of  our waters and Handed over this asset to Japs and white "political pirate*/' The regulations  made by the political party gave Bob JCelly a license for $50.00, a privilege which he is reported'  1 to have sold for upwards of ^300,000.00.   The present Conservative Government   at  Ottawa,- are  ; reversing this condition and seeking to remedy the awful results of the policy ot the late Liberal  administration.  It is laughable to observe the absurd pretentions of a political party which has  ! been solely responsible for the rotten condition which obtains in tbe fisheries ofc B. C.  "To investigate the exorbitant price of coal by a Oommisiion.'' We presume that our Liberal  fsfends would appoint Geo. MacDonald on this commission with full power to act). This is another absurd contradiction. Mr- McBride has repeatedly asked the Liberal party in Ottawa to  exercise its powers in this regard but they refused, because (no doubt) 'some of their best friends  were in the business.   It is the province of the Dominion authorities to do this anil it will no doubt  "be done in the near future by th������, new Government who have created m the, Tariff Commission a  medium through which this may be accomplished, a step which tbe,Liberals fought bitterly, being  another anomalous condition in that parly.  "Against ablation of public dwnain.'' Again we would point to the. fact that the Provincial Government has placed in reserve its timber and coal. It has investigated its timber and  passed an admirable act regarding its conservation. It has passed a "Water Act" which protects the public interest against unscrupulous speculators^which only demonstrate our contention  that our Liberal friends are so helplessly out-stripped that they are forced to absurd gener-  : alities. ���������'(>"��������� ���������   ���������' ;;_,";.  ' ''Local'Option.'* In incorporating this plank a sop is thrown to the temperance vote. This  journal has always stood strongly for a local option law, and we have used our influence in that  regard and will continue to do so. We cannot, however, refrain from remarking that it would  hardly be wise to seriously accept the contention of the Liberal party of B. C. that they favor  local option. A number of its members do, no doubt,, but as a party this plank is adopted* to  "catch votes." They know that they cannot win and will not be called on to implement their  "pledge, so can afford to be generous in their promises. The present McBride government have  refused to enact a local option law on the ground that they have the most stringent liquor law in  Canada* This is true, and it has been well enforced; at the same time we believe in the principle  of local .option and believe that the Oovernment could make no mistake in adopting such a  measure. ���������_���������'.-. -y-y. ;-.''.;���������  From these brief criticisms it Will, be observed that our Liberal opponents have been very  liberal in advocating measures already undertaken by the Government, and also very generous in  making promises which it is exceedingly doubtful they ever intend to carry out, certain it is,  they havei no idea of having an opportunity of doing so in the near,future.  ���������it*.-.

But on investigations the report I get is that the class of Hindus we have -in  British Columbia are not a class who would possibly bring their wives to settle, in that province.  I do not of course mean that in every case; I am speaking in general terms. Thd police of Vancouver comptein rather bitterly that some of the Hindus are rather a troublesome class and the  health officers of Vancouver make a similar complaint that they are not a desirable class of settlers to have if it is possible to avoid doing so. In view of the condition and class of Hindu that  we habpen to have in Canada I do not thing; there is any chance of women coming trot to take  (Cot-tinned "age 4)  *.*.** *+*********^j^**!*j������*i[*������*^^  as-tte  Itia  te*afad*^%  -norJI^ aw| west,  ���������Uten of Ontario,  that railway  bay, and, thei  Kbajof i  sentimtTo^Se ........

Now, it is apparent  that boundaries so agreed upon would not be 'departed from lightly by a succeeding administration, and, so, after a goad deal of negotiations and  consideration of claims which had really been  passed upon by the administration which the hon.  gentleman supnorted^-aud I would like to observe that, as he himself haa said, he ia one of  those that assented to the boundaries of Manitoba,  of Ontario and of Quebec exactly .as they are proposed by this Bill and the other Bills which are to  be brought before tbe House later on���������the question arose as to how Ontario might be granted a  port on Hudson bay because it waa desirable in  tb> interest notNouly'of Ontario but of the prov-  iueeof Manitoba and of tbe Dominion of Canada  as a whole, that if Ontario desired to extend its  railway to Hudson, bay it should be given every  opportunity of doing so. That is to the advantage  not only'of Ontario but likewise x>f Manitoba, and  .every hon.,member in this House, whether representing Ontario, Manitoba or any other province,  .will agree at once'in the truth of what I have  just stated).-''"It is apparent to every hon. gentil-  roan thatllte lands within the extended boundaries jtff^ahitoba iro. to be retained by the .'fedeiw-;t  gover^inent, so i^was suggested, and eventually  tbe suggestion was carried out, that a grant of  certain lands* within the right of the government  of Canada, might be made to the pfovince of Ontario sufficient for tbe purpose of extending the  Ontario government railway to a port on Hudson  boy if it should desire in future to adopt that policy. In that view the Governor in Council passed  on the 30th of February an order in cour/cil, irhich  I will-lay upon the table of the House for the in- *  formation of hon. members, couched in the following jernm:       x -  The Committee of the Privy Council have had  before them a report from the right hon. the Prime  Minister submitting,���������in connection with the proposed extensions of the limits of the: reipTective  provinces of Ontario and Manitoba as defined by  resolutions of the House of Commons passed oaf  the 13th July, 1908, that the government of Ontario represents that upon the enlargement of the  territory of the province as proposed it would or  might be desirable in the interests of the province  to extend the provincial railway, known as the  Temiskaming and Northern Ontario railway, at  present in operation between North Bay and  Cochrane in the said province to a suitable port  on Hudson hay. That it niay be found necessary  or expedient to select for such Hudson bay terminus a. point at or. near the mouth of the Nelson  river, and that as the estuary of the Nelson lies  some distance westward of the proposed western  or northwestern boundary of the province, the  government desires that such arrangements be  made as will enable the province, or such commission or public corporation as may be thereunto  authorized on behalf of the province, to construct,  maintain and operate that portion ot the proposed  extension of the said provincial railway which  may be projected within the extended boundaries  of the province of Manitoba for the purpose of  reaching the terminus to be selected as aforesaid  upon the waters of Hudson bay.  The hon. minister states that he considers that  reasonable provision should be made to give effect  to this request on the part of Ontario in bo far,  asrit is wi*hin the authority of the government and  X  r- ^  ���������V-ii ��������� ��������� ��������� ������-  THE WESTERN CALLi  m  A NATIONAL^ TRAGEDY  Here is a tragic situation.

This state of affairs, so nicely depleted by such aa eminent authority  as the good Bishop Clancy, is largely  due- to the benign influence of St.  Alphonsus LigttOrf, whose works are  greatly in demand at Irish missions,  snd which may be bad at a nominal  cost.

On Saturday last the 5th Vancouver  Co. ot the Boys' Brigade received a  surprise visit from Capt G. H. Bot-  hsm ot the 13th Middlesex V. B. Capt  Botham was at one Ume inspector of  csdet* for th* Duke of Teck, and has  had a very wide experience ot boy*.  After the usual opening exercise*  Capt' Botham minutely Inspected the  uniforms of the boys, and highly com-4 '^ r< ft|||||t|t>  plimented them on the very smart snd  clean manner lnvwhlch their uniform  was worn and kept. After squad  drill the company went through various evolutions in company drill, figure marching, free gymnastics, wand  drill, and parallel bars.  Capt Botham in making his report  said he was more than surprised at  the marvelous display he had seen,  especially he said was he taken with  the company drill, and that he was  not exaggerating when he said it was  one of the finest performances of drill  by boy* he had ever witnessed. Capt  Botham then gave the officers and  boys a few tips for their future guidance, which were gladly received.  The 5th Vancouver Coy, has made  great progress since its inaugeratlon  some two years, and isv doing g#eat  work among the boys of Mt.

GOVERNMENT ON TRIAL  Crucial Moments Test True Worth  (By Professor E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc)  \Vhat-\Mian or woman cannot look back over  life and see the chief times of severe trial? Some  have had more eventful lives than otheis. But all  have met, and won. or lost, their Waterloo. Sometimes it is a crucial test of a financial sort. Again  it may he* a,.'case of hard trial arising from sickness or accident, It may be the loss of friends  through death or by means of a serious quarrel.  There are: so many real trials in life that we all  have had stern and trying experiences of a character that enables us to say.that we ''have passed  under the rod."  We also know whether the best or the worst  within us prevailed while we were going through  the "grinding mills." Some stand the crucial test  in a truly heroic manner. Others come through  disheartened and almost broken in .body or spirit/  or both.    /'  Few, however, are able to perceive that the  real time of test, the crux of human experience, is  not when the trouble comes, so much as before its  arrival. TJuftnan, company, nation or government  that steadily follows the course of wisdom and  does the right, is then going through the crucial  moments, more so than when their judgment day  arrives.;" ���������>' ���������' ���������  '��������� y ���������' -j- \  Let me illustrate:���������The College session is in  progress- The students are faithful daily and accumulate success for the coming examination, or  are faithless to their trust and work.   When the  jng up to the election with smiling faces and calm  spirits. v ^-  -They know that they ara ready. Tln-y have-  done their duty and have no fear of the result. At  the coining examination their masters will pass  ��������� them through successfully to another session of  more advanced wprk. They are worthy because  the,y were faithful to their public duty. They  have faced and passed the real ������rux during the  three past years. Now with a sniile of contentment they await the plaudits and official acceptance of those whom they have served. What  I wish to make clear is thisi���������  'The coming election is not the crux as so  many would say; but the time of crueial interest  and strain has passed, with the clear knowledge  both of themselves and the wejl-read electors that  they are ready and worthy an advance to higher  and more extended arenas of public service.

South America is noted as a land of waterfalls, there being  within its boundaries no less than four to compete with the mighty cascade of the northlarid.  In fact, the largest one, Iquarzu. closely resembles  Niagara in that it make's an acute horseshoe bend  on one side; a further resemblance being the fact  that it belongs to twp countries, the river forming the boundary line between Brazil and Ar-  + H >*f | ������H������ f f If t *********  TJtY...  ^  F.I.

They know that they are ready.  Their less faithful fellow-students who neglected  their work' when theirs was the time of preparation, come to the examination in a state of doubt,  perturbation and positive fear. One set of stu-v  dents can smile, knowing that success is theirs.  The other fear the results, because they know  they are unprepared and Unworthy. Success, and  failure enter the college class room in the heads  and hearts of the prepared and the unready. The  real crux has passed for both parties. ��������� The hours  of true test glided away during the teaching and  studying session.  How I would apply this to all phases of human  life, of corporate activity, of national existence,  and of legislative responsibility. - ' ���������  " - "��������� We are coming up close to the election day for  the British Columbia Legislature. t And. what do  we see on our journey?

The present government, now appealing to the  people, are doing so after along, arduous session. ,  During the years of trial they were true to their  trnst. =They dallied not by the way- Their IftR-  sons. were well learned, and, like apt students,  they made good Use of their knowledge on their  tour through the legislative session* that have  passed.

The entire fall approximates fully two  miles in extent. Below the final cascade there  are depths which a hundred fathom line has failed to soyind, and the ignorant natives believe them  to be without any bottom. During the rainy season, which lasts nearly half of the year, the Vol-  unfepfv^irater passing over these precipices is  almost incredible.  In a clear day the steaming columns of mist  which crown these falls are plainly visible more  than a dozen miles away, while the deafening  roar is heard to a great distance.  This beautiful river wanders through dense  groves of bamboo and mahogany, alternating  with the wild cassava and coffee tree until it finally reaches the great fall, set like a sparkling  gem amid a growth of tropical verdure.  r A$ the Paraguay River, of which the Iquaza  is a tributary, is navigable for steamers, travellers from Bueuos Ay res and Carrientes are coming more and more to avail themselves of a  journey to this wonderland of America, for a  long time unknown except to the natives.  The body of our prayer is the sum of our duty;  and as we ask of God whatsoever, we need, so  we must watch and labor for all that we ask.���������  Jeremy Taylor.

Therefore the Island Realty Company is starting in just the nick  of time. They handle real estate,  acreage, mines, timber claims and investments. Mr. Anderson is well  known throughout the Comox District, as he wa* born at Comox and  has resided here practically all his  life with the exception of a year or  two at Victoria while attending the  high school, and a couple of year* in  business in that city. He has many  friends and will prove an important  acquisition to the realty interests of  Courtenay. Having lived here all his  life, he knows the country like a book  and hence is particularly well adapted  for this line.    /  Mr. Anderton opened op here the  first of last April. He make* a specialty of acreage in small tracts on tbe  easy-payment plan. Tea and twenty-  acre tract* can be bought from him  at from $40 and up per acre, and  larger tract* pro rata if desired. It  should further be stated here that he  writes fire, life, and accident insurance- policies. He haa a comfortable  home and a nice, handsome office at  Courtenay and will be pleased to meet  or communicate with prospective pat*  ron*.  BATES * HARDY.
