 gpffffjK^fy^^  The. indications are that the administration  if which Mr. Richard McBride is the trusted  leader w ill be endorsed at the polls on Thursday  Lext as no other government in Canada has ever  Wn endorsed.   So certain does this appear to be  |hat many Liberals take the position that it Would  ;iave been wise from the party standpoint not Jo  fcave put any candidates m the field* 5������is.W0**h  ���������rhiif inquiring how it haa come about that auch \  in unprecedented political conditio^ hss arisen  ta this province.   Our Liberal friends hate-hot  kncleavored to explain it, and we thi)Elk'<������9fih-  hood reason, for they would have to concede -  phat it is due to the excellence of the Administration, or to the weakness of the Opposition, or to  lyoth.   Our own explanation is that the e_cellenee  \>t the Administration has destroyed all opposition except that of a partisan nature.  .     We note that our Liberal friends have not  idvanced a single proposition as an alternative'  o the government policy in any of -its aspects.  Tiey have given absolutely no reason why they  hould be entrusted with office, or sited^ a valid  ���������eason why the presence of one of their candidates  n the House would be of sdvantage to the coun-  ry. An Opposition that stands for some principal  nay have its uses; but there is no place in our  lystem of parliamentary government lor an Oppo-  ition that limply ofiposes. <  Why haa the opposition to the McBride ad-  jiniatratian iresolved rtsefl into a mar* sjs|t to  teep a political party alive t thp answer is'to he  found in the record of the ntfri^. ^������ Mr,  [cBride took oflwe he waa c<*|(onted mp  principle problems.   One of them was Jw we  iubtic credit could be most speedily r*4|M^ajld'  \k* other was haw the province could* be most  tf������edily a^wl advanta^uriy developed. His most  lostile critic will not deny that |s has placed  >vioeial credit on, a very high plane or that ho  .basn inttmsnswtal in insngursfchig wnrfra-ef  slopment on a scsle oommensurete with the  ttness of the province and the reasonable.  ^rations of the people.   When he took office  Jiere was a heavy overdraft in the bank whose  [managers were in a position to impose their will  I upon any government that might be in power.  it became Mr. McBride's first duty to restore  [ healthy financial conditions and ensure- a sufficient  revenue to warrant the introduction of progres-"  ksive measures.   In this he succeeded beyond all  Expectations, we think we can say even beyond  ' his own.   Certainly it was not long before the  \ deficit was wiped out and the banks, that had  looked askance at the provincial account, came to  regard it as a highly desirable branch of their  business.   In the course of time the deficit was  converted into the greatest cash surplus ever held  by any Canadian province, and, we think, greater  than has ever been held by the Pominion in actual  available money-  This greet result wss acheived not by the imposition of taxation but by the judicious utilization of the great natural resource*of. the province.  There were, it is true, s few additional taxeaim-  j>osed, but the receipts from them; formed only a  *mal.l part ol! the revenue. We repeat that the  restoration of the provincial credit and the change  of a heavy deficit into an unprecedented surplus  was the result of the judicious utilization of the  natural resources of the province. By fsr the  greater part of the settlement of the province  '.luring the past ten years hss been upon land  privately owned. Pre-emption as a means of settling the vacant areas of the province has been  proved by years of trial to be very largely a failure. There are areas on which there is not a  single settler; there are other areas, no better  -ituated or more suitable for cultivation, where  i private owners have built up very prosperous  communities. The policy of permitting private  persons to acquire large areas of crown lands,  which it. will be to their interest to place in the  hands of actual settlers, should be judged by its  results���������and the results iu British Columbia have  been satisfactory to the public. No one has lost  }t, for the purchasers have had value for their  loney. The province has gained not only by the  [ttoney received for the land but by the conversion  if non-revenue producing areas into taxable ares.9,  !>ut even more so by the conversion of what was  ���������nee wilderness into thriving settlements. The  ommunities in the great Okanagan Valley, which  re the admiration of all who see them, are not  lue to the policy of pre-emption but have result-  d from the broad vision of private owners, who  rent to the people, told them what the land was  eke, and brought them to it. What has been  [one there has been done, and is being done elsewhere, and every person who has made an" impartial study of the question must admit that  hritish Columbia will only be successfully eolon-  ped through the instrumentality of private own-.  Irs. It is easy to call the man who buys'a tract  It land, subdivides it and sells it to settlers a  peculator: but that proves nothing. If to pay  ���������ie government for land, to survey and subdivide  :, to advertise it; to bring it personally under  fie attention of persons suitable to become set-  !ers: to bring the settlers to the land; to assist  leni in making homos; to give them long time  (Continued on Page 5)  !��������� ���������   ��������� ,"'      J^U,^^ '''' TIM HflN/PRIEMlER McBRlDE  ,-. v  Some 1500 electors listened to Premier McBride in the Vancouver Opera House last week  T Oanners Seek Further Protection���������ttaesnt Regulations Jtfke Impossible White Pishing Population I   All who know the ability of the honourable gen-  f ,' __������h������_-__i fiiiiiiMM-S-Uii 1   tlenian a-d heard him on that oeeasion, were  55E_SS<~  SK"?>  The B.

I   ������' ���������g^ftj'������rWwW aSs S \%  Let us briefly examine these two regulations which call for personal attention ol men of such ���������    - ���������'--J:j * -* Ki���������'* --iT-* *-' c -*  sminent ability as Mr. Bell-lrvin et aL  First the export duty which the minister cancelled.  The eannerymen at. the present time arbitrarily set the price to be paid the fisherman for bis   '  fish, and also ha&-tha,privilege--ptfifM offered, in which case the only thing  the fisherman can do is to throw them over board, as he cannot export.  The eannerymen have the ' *  privilege of h$1n|inf in fiah.from the American traps, which he frequently does.   Now it must be ' ���������  opening of th^ e*npaiga, then we ahal) have a  masterpiece from a msster statesman and platform debater.  #       Very much #f thsj^s;lanfuage can be ap-  X:.__lWr>'t>������ Iniww^hte Attorney treaeral, who  t-i������Mnpsu1^ 5������r mtm-er InYte #r^u6W S#ntfl  a splendid account of himself snd of his wort at  Victoria.   Though tired and well tried for long  (Continued *iss *)  i <V;  to do- so,,'withi ther result that our fishermen have been compelled to dump 6ver-board^- large  amount of their catch, because they were not.allowed to export. But worse than that^-the can-  nerymen have brought in scow-loads of cheap American fish from the traps (when .traps were  ^veHe^ed).and.refused to purchs^ow the afore-mentioned result.  This does not occur every year, buitt has occurred all too often, although Mr. Bell-lrvin will  {seek to becloud the fact with specious arguments. Tbst such a thing has ever ownirrsd, or that  it is'pifirtble for it to occur, is good snd sufficient grounds to warrant a change in the regulation.  We contend that the fisherman should have the privilege of selling his fish on the open market, and  if the American buyer wishes to out-bid the local buyer the fisherman ha* the right to this tacrsss-  tw'ffl*     .  << The warmers contend that this means that onr fish will be canned in American canneries.  Horrible thought���������"better far," say the canners, "that these fish should be dumped into the  Fraser than that the fisherman should sell them to be canned by the unholy American csnner."  The answer is, that by virtue of his position the Fraser river canner has a distinct advantage  over the Puget Sound canner, as far ss Canadian fish is concerned, and, if he will, can out-bid him  in price.  The truth is, thst the removal of this prohibitory export law will take out of the bands of  the canner a weapon which he hss successfully used to keep tbe fisherman in line, and will mske  it impossible for the canner to drive out of the business a fisherman who dots not mdtty accept  his, the canners, terms; but it will give the fisber.nan t\\r ri?ht to sell his flih in the open market,  which is the inherent privilege of every man.  Now a word on the boat-rating regulation, which applies to the northern psrt of B. 0.  By this regulation each cannery is permitted to fish a stipulated number of boats according  to the size of the cannery.   It is argued that this regulation waa made for the purpose of pro-  <i������ tecting the fish; in practice it has resulted in the protection of the canners, and in fostering a  1. combine of unparalleled audacity,  * When a fisherman wishes to secure a license to fish, he goes to the government inspector ���������  who demands the regular fee AND A COPT OP A CONTRACT WITH SOME CANNER TC TEE J  EPPECT THAT HE (the. fisherman) WILL DELIVER ALL OP HIS PI8H TO THAT CANNER *  AND TO HO OMB SLfKy snd at the canners own price, as it will at once be observed that this  contract with the canner must be made before the fisherman can get a license to fish. Iu other  words, every fisherman is the serf of the eanfiev. Whatever may have been the intention of the  government when making this regulation, it is clear that it would be impossible to conceive of a  more nefarious rule in practiee.  The contention of the three B. C- members is t���������af this rule should^ be abolished, and that the  fishermen be allowed to sell their fish to the highest bidder. There are about 800 boats fishing  on the Skeena. divided among about 16 canneries, let the government issue the 800 licenses and  let the canners compete for the fish. At present the canners set the price and as a man must  sign a contract, before be can get a license, it is clear who holds the control. Last year the canners-  in the north paid ten cents a fish, whereas they could have afforded to pay double that sum. but *������  *f owing to the boat-rating they were not compelled to do so. No wonder they do not wish the regu- X  lation removed. A very good illustration of how this works out'is the case of Bob Kelly's cannery ���������;  on Smith's Inlet. Kelly has an exclusive license on that inlet and no one else is allowed in. He  has taken a"profit, out of a privilege for which he pays $50.06- per annum;- ol- from- $40,000.00 to f.  $70,000.00 per year; recently he sold the privilege (With the cannery worth about $40,000.00) for T  $325,000.00, on whieh he is reported to have received $60,000.00 down, but th������ balance has not *  been paid, because of the threatened change in regulations by Ottawa. i  We confess that it is rather rough on Bob for the Government to chango. its regulations just T  at this time, aad no doubt he will heartily second Bell-lrvin's statement, that these meddling mem- f  hers of parliament are "ignorant cranks, pumped full of nonsense." T  We dare, however, to affirm that no man is entitled to $325,000-00 for a privilege from which $  the government only receive $50.00. ^ i  Mr. Bell-lrvin also said that the result of removal of  the \ boat-rating' would  be,   that   men %  would get. an out-fit from a cannery aud then sell his fish to another competing cannery.      Our X  *answcr is, that that is not the business of the gov-emment but a private contract between tbe can- v,  (Continued Page 5) 4  ���������;������  *���������-* **���������*���������* -*-* * **���������** *** ��������� t * ���������������* ������������������������ ��������� * ������������..������������������������������������������ ��������� **.* **.**** ***** -** *.* **���������������*. * *���������* ���������  i  i  Appealing unto Caesar, aa- the quaint old  Hebrew phrased it, will in a few days become  an actuality in Vancouver when the electorate  are called upon to choose their representatives  in the Hall of Legislature for the nett Parliamentary term.

"See what  we will do for you, our good friends���������we are  your only friends. We are the real Codlin���������not  Short.   Watch us abuse the other fellow."

I am one of the moderate crowd, and it seems to  me there is only one policy before us."  Only one sound, progressive policy, and  that is McBride'a own railway roads and development of natural resources policy; the other fellow is only "hollering" to be let in the back way,  or any old way, only let them in. '' See how easily wc call down Bowser, and what choice adjectives we have for McBride." Don't you think,  Mr. Elector, that a party who is so keen on mud-  slinging can do a lot of good?   YOU DON'Tt  Well, well!   What a surprise.

Every candid, intelligent man, who has studied  the question of the various forest policies of this  continent and that of Europe, must admit that  for the purposes to be served, the forest policy  of British Columbia is unsurpassed* It is the result of much thought, comparison and planning  on the part of experienced, able and honest men.  Here is one of the best elements of this policy.  By the regulations now in force, the increment of  annual increase in value is preserved to the whole  public. It does not go to the timber men. They  simply make their money by the annual handling  of their limits.  Another fine feature is this: The licensees,  whether, they work or not, pay to the government, and therefore to the people, sn annual interest on the value of the timber preserved, or  reserved for them. By this means the government hss a steady and a fairly well-known annual revenue, coming m from the forests under  licenses. The old method gave an uncertain and  spasmodic return. This policy carries certainty  as against uncertainty of the previous plans, snd,  moreover, it gives a better return to the public.  In 1904 the REVENUE FROM THE TIMBER  SOURCES AMOUNTED TO $455,000.00. In 1908  IT HAD MOUNTED UP TO $2,785,000.00. This  is significant and telling. In the last seven years  the income from this one source of revenue was  $13,000,000.00. This is nearly $2,000,000-00 annually.        . '  Here, then, is good ground to give praise to  the men who made an improvement of such  value.  .  THE AGRICULTURAL POLICY OF THE BRITISH COLUMBIA GOVERNMENT.  , Some-rather clear-headed people have wrong  notions of what is being done in relstion to the  LAND POLICY of this province. I, st times, am  filled with, wonder at die opinions of the adverse  critics. One would almost imagine that they expect the members of the Cabinet and Legislature  to go out to the forest with axe shovel, pick, dynamite, plow, harrow, and all the other requisites  of farm-making. This may be very well for some  ofi them, but it would not suit all.  ' They Save a better plan, and one of A more  practical sort. They have done many useful and  necessary things. They have pushed forward the  making of roads, bridges, trails snd distributive  surveying. This is one of the most valuable, and  telling methods known, to give the would-be new  farmer a chance to go upon tbe land.  This is not all. They have inaugurated the  BEST SYSTEM OF RAILWAY BUILPJNG adopted in Canada. The new railways are to go  forward st a rapid rate, and are so distributed as  to open up districts in almost-every part of the  {irovince: These railways will give strings of vil-  ages, towns and cities, which will make *% possible for the farmers to find markets when they do  settle on the lands. With the trails, bridges,  roads, railways, and the consequent centres of  population which at once follow, we have the  very best'basis of a permanent and successful  LAND POLICY.  Add to this the fact that millions of acres are  already surveyed, and are awaiting the coming  of the farmer and gardener, and we see that  much effective work has been accomplished. In  further addition, we may refer to the(excellent  and stable government that insures the inflow of  both money and immigration. Surely all these  things go fsr to make clear that the government  has been pursuing a strong, steady, definite snd  wise course in relation to the use of our farm  lands.  CURRENT TOPICS AT HOME AND ABROAD.  Alas and alack for Aldermen Ramsay and  Baxter! The sledge-hammer "Lady Van" has  decided to pen-punish these aldermen and their  coadjutors for their advene vote concerning the  Women's Club. When the heavy fist of this big,  ponderous writer falls on any human mortal,  especially upon a man, then, alas for that man!  This "Lady Van" has jumped put into the arena  where men are busy and she tries to wade in as  if she understood ths problems with which they  are dealing. Her language shows lack of fine  spirit, and manifests considerable coarseness, badly messed with slang.  When one sees how she strikes left and right  at the Aldermen, the representatives of the Vancouver electorate; how she snarls at Mr. H. II-  Stevens, M. P., the choice of the Burrard electorate, arid as he reads her rude language referring to the Library Board, he is apt to think  that this Lady Van is not a refined person, that  she lacks in good sense, and is truly using a  pseudonym when, using the term " 'Lady' Van."  . The very heft of her pen-fist puts one in mind of  King Henry's wife from Flanders. Let "Lady  Van" enter the arena of the press critic, but she  would do well not to venture beyond her strength,  depth/and the language .of good taste. She seems  to be an apt copyist of the other critic known as  "Bruce." She���������if she be not a saale persoiir-  must-be-the teacher of "Bruce," or an apt scholar.  Refinement in dealing with public men and questions is always in. order, and especially when a  real "Lady" and not a mannish woman is writing.  Rowdies at Public Meetings.  The Liberals, at their public meeting last  Friday evening, had to make threats of throwing  out the noisy, debased and cowardly hoodlums  who pose as Socialists. These men are the meanest and lowest of the "genus homo." They have  lost all sense of shame, are a. disgrace to their  homes���������if they have any���������and are unfit to have  any standing in or among the public  Some of these idiotic creatures were thrown  out of the Opera House by the Conservatives,  and should have been thrown out an hour sooner.  The time has come -when these rowdies must be  treated as they deserve when they trot around  from one hall to another in order to interrupt  'public meetings of every sort. In fact, they have  not the good sense to hold a meeting among  themselves without much horse-play and general  tumult- They glory in their \shame, while they  preach anarchy and try to put their diabolic  teachings into practice.  They are not Socialists, and have no claims  on Socialism. They are anarchists, and in their  hearts ready-to-hand murderers. The men who  would destroy a community would murder an individual of that community. If those of us who  claim and advocate the principles of Socialism  as sound at heart are afraid to throw out these  public thugs, then our cause must suffer and stink  in the nostrils of all fair-minded men.  The Socialists who permit these vile creatures to enter their organizations and give them  "good standing" are making a serious mistake.  Socialism is going down into rottenness in British  Columbia because they permit.the vilest scum to  remain attached. Most of these rascals are foreigners/ and ss such should not be permitted to  create a disturbance a second time in any meeting . The ignorant Englishman at the Opera  House who kept shouting "He-aw, He-aw" got  his medicine, but it came none too soon.  Lord Churchill and Kaiser Wilhelm.  Churchill, the First Lord of the Admiralty,  spoke to Germany and the whole world with  Saxon bluntness. He .spoke the truth to the let*  ter, snd the Germans clearly understand. The  Sea-Lord says, "If Germany builds three ships-  of-war, England will build five. If Germany takes  a year off and refrains from building three vessels for war purposes, England will cease building  five. Let Germany increase by three and England  will increase by five. This is plain, sensible, practical, and the essence of a manly and outspoken  statesmanship- And England has five times the  wealth and population of Germany.  Incidentally, we read that Austria has lanuch-  ed another dreadnought or two; and the whole  world knows thst these are intended for German  use in an emergency. Let us look at this proposition. Germany shakes at Great Britain the Austrian ships-of-war. She imagines that this extra  attempt at navy building will bring up the Teuton  fleet to that of the Saxon. But Germany goes  further yet in thought and intent. She intends  to press into her military and naval combination  the power of Italy. She may succeed, but she  is dealingwith a doubtful element, and may find  at the last moment that she is playing with fire.  Let us look on the other side of the German  Empire. The Kaiser has in mind the sudden  capture of the naval power of Norway, Belgium  and Holland, with that of Denmark. I am not  dreaming. British and other statesmen know that  this is true, and they have made deep plans to  prevent this very thing.  In the event of war Germany must keep her  troops in readiness for France and Russia. These  twQ countries would���������tomorrow, if they were sure  they could���������smash Germany. Now let Germany,  Austria���������and Italy, if so forced���������undertake a  war upon Britain and what will happen t  France clare not let this war be undertaken  without her most strenuous opposition, both with  men and money. She would be forced to act at  once.   ... i^.,..     ;  But; thjajs not all1 Russia would move her  troops along the German and Austrian frontier  in such a manner as to keep one-half of the German troops back from France.  Further yet, Britain has an alliance with  Japan. It is the most business and matter-of-fact  kind of an alliance in force among the nations.  She, by its terms, would be forced to take action;  and most gladly. In a few months she would  clean out the Germans from northeast China and  join Britain in destroying her African possessions.  Germany wbiild within a few months loose all her  over-tbe-seas territories and be limited to Europe.  Britain and Japan would become the African  ^over-lords of the captured Teuton Africa. This is  just what Japan would delight in, and what is  coming if such a war ensue.  In fact, such a war would suit Japan better  than any other of the nations involved. Surely  there are tremendous possibilities within the lap  of Dame Nature to be made manifest in tbe near  future.  , ��������� The one important thing not yet referred to  is this:' The rest of the British Empire would  throw its mighty resources unreservedly into such  a struggle, and these resources are of so vast a  moment as to cause many anxious moments to  those who would attack Britania, the "Ship Covenant Nation."  It Would Be Very Interesting.  Let us suppose, in the coming election, that  the following three Liberals managed to get into  the Provincial Legislature: Mr. L. D. Taylor, Mr.  Maxwell Smith, and Mr. "Bruce." It would be  funny. The theatricals of the cities could not  furnish a comedy, or a tragedy, or a drama, or  a moving picture show, or a vaudeville, or any  combination that would, or could, equal the  amusement furnished to . the people that these  three loving Liberals could and would'furnish.  Look at the terms' of endearment used by Mr.  Maxwell Smith when he mentions Bruce. And  see how sweetly Bruce refers to Mr. L. D. Taylor.  And lo, the " World "���������that i������,Mr. L. D. Taylor-  has a few endearing words for Bruce. But can  the people pay the price .for. the putting on of  such comedy���������per haps tragedy ?  PORTUGUESE COLONIES COMING TO  BRITAIN.  The influential Portugese who are agitating  to hand over to Britain the African possessions  are showing good sense. They see clearly two  things: They cannot manage to govern and develop these large African territories. And they  are sure they- will soon be defrauded of them by  Germany, hence they are wise in moving to give  their lands' to their long-time friend, Great  Britain. And moreover, "Abraham is the heir  of the world." Hence his seed must have possession of their possessions sooner or later. The  sooner the better; Hers is the most liberal and  enlightened rule in the history of mankind. Her  mild, but firm and successful sway is acting as  a magnet to draw all mankind within her fold.  And they will come, too. What a most glorious  prospect! The nations that will not serve will  be broken.   This is the word divine.  *******.*^******^***4****'*      ������,,-fr v.|.,������.|..|.,|i������.|l ltil|r j '|.i|i M H H ������l|.������������  ::  the  About  Richmond's Bazaar* 1513 Commercial Dr.  ��������� ��������� ���������       '   ��������� -   ���������������  : ��������� ��������� ��������� , <  44Oreat Store!

(Continued from Pago I)  for payment; to establish communities in lieu  of isolated farmsf i& to do these things on the  chance of making a moderate profit is speculation,  then) we suppose, the land companies are speculators; hut they are doing a great work for the  province.  With a full treasury, restored provincial credit and an assured yearly income, the Government  was able to inaugurate a policy of provincial development. For this purpose Mr, McBride resolved to employ both the money aud credit of  the Province, feeling that the only proper use to  put the accumulated millions to was the provision  of needed public works, and the provincial credit  could be safely employed in assisting the construction of necessary railways- It is needless to recapitulate what has been accomplished in this  way, or to go over the plans which the Premier  has told us he hss in view for additional development work. The effect of this policy of progress is seen on every hand, snd every line of  business and industry is feeling the beneficial  consequences. The whole province' has' received  such an impetus ss was never enjoyed in the past  and has never been surpassed in any part of the  world.  NOTES OF THE WEST.  (Continued ffrsw pugs i)  on the ownership of the means of life by the capitalist or master class, and that as a, consequence '  there is an enslavement of the woriiflg cla$s, by  whose means alone���������I quote from your manifesto  ���������-wealth is produced!  That, in plain language, means there is no  result from high mentality at all���������simply muscular labor as expended by the working class.  But, let me tell you, kind friends; there is just  as much worth and benefit from high mentality  in the working as in any other classv  Mark me, I am not "agen" the Socialists as  a body, neither do I fear them���������as they* wish so  many to do- They will not admit the existence  of Labor-Capitalism, as against Money-Capitalism,  therefore it is hardly possible to argue with them.  The use of the word "slave" is an unctuous feast  to your true Socialist���������forgetting that hie .is himself one of the greatest of slaves to bis own narrow views.  His own body is slso a slave who has to work  for him; and as to WEALTH^ that does not consist of money alone. But "away with it," cries  this band of crude reformers, and we will show  you how to rule.'*  Show us nothing. They cannot: even show  common sense, snd it is almost a waste of time  to pen a line on them; but what I do just want  to my is this, that even tfiie Socialists have done  some good.  Not, perhaps, in the way they intended; but  J for one am willing to concede that factory and  other useful legislation came mainly from their  efforts. The trouble with them is they will only  admit one side of the argument. There is no  other side, they say.

GOD SAVE THE KING.  B. 0. FISHERIES  ENGLAND'S GRIP ON TBE WORLD.  (Continued from Page 1)  nsr ������������d the fisherman and the place to enforce  that contract is through ths civil courts, and not  by governmental regulations.  He also said that if the men were permitted  to sell their fish where they wish, gojne cMMsris*  would get mors than others. The answer is obvious, the canner who paid the highest price would  get the fish, and that is as it should he.  To sum up and briefly reply to the contention  of the canners that they wish these regulations to  protect the fish. Experience teaches us that the  canners are not in the business to conserve the  fish, but to can them and to make money, and  judging from the fortunes which have been made  the latter point seems to have been most successfully handled.  . To conserve the fish on. the Fraser it is necessary to secure the co-operation of the American  authorities as the depletion occurs in the operation of the American traps which capture the  fish, before they can reaeh the river. This is the  real cause of decrease in Fraser River salmon,  and no' amount of conservation on the Canadian  side will stop the depletion. We therefore urge  the view that if possible the co-operation of the  American authorities be secured. In the meantime  " strict enforcement by the Government of its regulation be maintained on the Canadian side.  In the north the Americans do not interfere  to any appreciable degree, -so that all we require  is adequate "closed hours" (now 36 each week)  and strict enforcement of the regulation, together  with sufficient hatcheries and the removal of obstructions in the streams so that the salmon can  get up them successfully. 'In conclusion permit  the statement, that we cannot expect a decent  self-respecting fishing population until these invidious regulations are removed, which constitute  a fisherman a serf of the canners,,instead of an  independent citizen.  AVe hear much about "pessimism" and "optimism." The words are of Latin origin, and  come from the adjectives meaning "worst" and  "best." The theory of the one is that this is a  poor world, possibly the'worst that'could be made,  and is growing worse, and that the outlook for  human .society is gloomy! The theory of the  other is ��������� the opposite. Optimism counts this a  good world, the best possibly the Lord could"  mate, and that it is growing better every year,  and that; the outlook .for the race is bright and  glorious. "Whether one is an optimist or a pessimist is partly a matter of temperament, possibly  of health, partly of experience and more largely  of faith. Men of faith have a touch of optimism  despite everything else. - As to personal comfort,  one will feel better to cultivate the optimistie view.  Some one has said that an optimist is a man who  can see a fried cake without noticing the hole  in it.  That Great Britain has a hold on the Trade  and Commerce of the world far beyond what is  generally supposed is easily shown by an illustration.  Take Canada as an instance.  In the year 1911 Britain imported from Canada the value of about twenty-five million pounds  sterling, and exported to Canada about twenty  million pounds sterling. This gives a trade balance of five million pounds, or $25,000,000 against  England and in favor of Canada.  But Canada has over two billions of dollars  of English money, on which it pays interest or  dividends. It is safe to say that at least the British capitalist gets 4 1>2 per cent, on that enormous  investment. 4 1-2 per cent, on $2,000,000,000  gives no less than $90,000,000 annually. Now deduct the trade balance of $25,000,000 in favor of  Canada and we get $65,000,000 annually in favor  of Great Britain.  Now look at Australia. In 1911 Great'Britain imported from Australia fifty-six million nine  hundred and forty-seven thousand pounds sterling, and exported to Australia forty million six  hundred thousand pounds sterling. The difference here is roughly sixteen ^million pounds in  favor of Australia.  But an Old Country financial statement appeared not long since which set forth that oyer  $2,000,000,000 of British money is invested in Australia. This at 41-2 per cent, would give $90,000,4  000 annually, tints leaving a final balance of $10,-  000,000 in favor of England annually.  Now look at India, England in 1911 imported from India 45,000,000 pounds sterling and  exported to India 52,000,000 pounds sterling.  Here there is a trade balance in favor of England  amounting to $35,000,000.  The same financial statement already referred  to set forth that the investment of British capital  in India amounted to over $2,000,000,000. Nowj  once moro, at 4 1-2 per cent., we got $90,000,000  of interest annually paid by India to Britain/  Put these two amounts together and we find Britain ahead by $125,000,000.  We shall now suppose that South Africa  East and West Africa and the balance of the British possessions outside of Canada, Australia and  India have borrowed an amount equal to that of  Canada. If so, then the annual interest paid to  Britain at 4 1-2 per cent, would be $90,000,000.  Britain exported to these countries about  41,000,000 pounds sterling and imported from  them about 40,000,000 pounds sterling. This  gives England a trade balance of $5,000,000. To  this add the annual interest of $90,000,000 and  we get $95,000,000 to the advantage of Great  Britain.  Let us put these final balances together and  we arrive at the enormous sum of $295,000,000 a������-  nually. Thus then in her trade, commerce and  finance Britain; is ahead of her colonies and dependencies by this vast amount. Rut this is not  all.  Of foreign countries there are a goodly number which fall behind Britain in trade balances,  and in addition owe her vast sums of money on  which they roust pay their 4 1-2 per eent. or more,  usually more. The final annual advantage to  England is enormous, and really past actual count.  Of those countries which have trade balances  against Britain most, if not all, haye large annual  interest amounts to send to Britain, which place  the gain against them and in favor of the "nation  that eats up the nations."  There are other phases of this problem of  deep interest.   For instance, in all the British  Eossessions there are vast numbers from the Home  and who annually send to their friends goodly  sums that run to large amounts.  EXTREftW WANT OF CONFIDENCE AMONG  TBE LIBERALS.  There is a party in Vancouver which says  that it wants opposition at Victoria. This party  has eighteen candidates in the field, from which  a nucleus of such opposition might be drawn.  But if the candidates were asked their opinion  of each other we should find that they would  greatly prefer a solid Conservative Legislation  than an opposition composed of their own comrades. For example, there is Mr. Maxwell Smith,  of the Vancouver ticket- How would he like to  sit in opposition as colleague to a polecat? That  is the term which he applied only the other day  to Mr. McConnell, the editor of the Liberal organ  and Liberal candidate for Yale. The description  was given in a letter which appeared in a Vancouver paper over Mr. Smith's signature.  Then Mr. McConnell himself has reciprocal  views concerning Mr. Maxwell Smith which  might make him also prefer other companionship.  But whom would the candidate for Vale select  as the remainder of the nucleus? Not the Liberal  candidate for Rossland, since, as editor of the  "Sun." he has represented that candidate and  his Vancouver journal to be mercenaries and  traitors; which descriptions go with nearly two  columns of alleged particulars of corruption and  perfidy. Most of us would not like to believe all  these accounts, which were given within the last  month in the journal of which Mr. McConnell is  the editor. Jlr. Taylor has expressed through  the "World" his views'of the inept and fatuous  teachings of the "Sun" group in a way that does  not suggest a desire on his part to help them  oppose at Victoria.  Thus it. appears that the average Liberal  campaigner who demands an opposition in the  name of a Liberal party would rather that there  should be none elected than it should be composed  of other Liberal campaigners in sight.

After nine yeare of succeaaful management ot the affaire ot the province  the McBride administration Is again  appealing to the electors for a renewal ot their confidence. The answer -to  that appeal will depend upon two  things: the impression made upon the  public by tbe record of the government over which Mr. McBride baa  presided, and the character of the policy outlined for the future. Diecuaa-  <of the matter upon these broad taouee  it would be wen to look at the out-  standing features of the policy which  laa been carried ov c by the government eince 1903, and to note its effect  tn developing, upbuilding, and ���������enrich-  ng the province.  Administration of the La*.  British Oplumbia has always bees  noted for the ability and integrity or  ito Judiciary. fche standard has been  well niaintained under the McBride  administration. The law haa been,  fesrieesly enforced, and laws affecting public morality within tbe control  of the Provincial Government have  been greatly, strengthened..  The Liquor Act  Among the most notable achievements in this direction le the Liquor  Act with which the name of Attorney?  Genersl Bowser will always be associated. This act has been in force for  a year. It has reduced drunkenness;  it has eliminated other crying evils  of the traffic, and has deprived law-  breaking licensees of their licenses.  The amendments introduced at the recent session of parliament are chiefly  aimed at the better protection of the  interdict, the severer punishment of  those who furnish him with liquor,  and the prevention of "bootlegging."  tt Is generally conceded that these  amendments will strengthen the act  and promote Its osetuUtess.  :   > - '   Lsw and Order.-'���������"/���������/  .m^*..   v^^SSSWlSSS    ^PSSS0    , ^* *J*4*9*t*m**m*t* w    ^**^***j*9**7^***^Jm*t**mt  Hon of tne police department, hots In  municipal end rural districts, has kept  crime under, and has rendered British Columbia one of tbe safest of  provinces tb live In.

These conditions depend both on good laws and on strict  administration, snd to that extent the  JfcBrlde government is entitled to  credit and to the confidence of tbe  people.  Development Work.  The real work of any government  Ui British Columbia at tbe present  time is to develop tbe province on  well-conceived lines, looking to its future greatness. Anyone who will take  tbe trouble to follow step by step tbe  unfolding of Premier McBride's plans,  will realize that he is content to build  slowly in order that he may build  surely. Whether it be railways, roads,  trails, bridges, or public buildings, it  will be found that the various parts  St into a comprehensive scheme and  are devised for the province and not  for a section.  Expansion of Trade.  The following figures show the general expansion of trade in British Columbia, and how it is spread over the  various industries. The figures are instructive as illustrating the diversified interests involved, and the broad  foundation upon which our prosperity  is developing.

The effect of this generous policy  is already making itself felt in the  rapid settlement of the province, and  settlement is tile one thing most required.  The big rush awaits the road and  the steel, and the stimulating effect of  its approach may be weJl noted in the  Fort George district, ���������where the permanent settlers have increased in  number during the last year to a remarkable extent, on the assurance  that the new railway policy will undoubtedly Include a railway from the  south, to say nothing of the impending connection with the G. T. P. from  the East. Indeed, wherever the aoV  vance guard of the. railway surveying  staff is found, men begin to assemble.  It is with governments as with private individuals; they have to go  slowly at first and cut their coat ao-  cording to their cloth. And so with  the McBride government, which has  had to pay its debts, restore its credit. There is no doubt that the extent of railway construction in the future will not be limited for want ot  capital.  :-:~>'X-M-:-:*-J-:-M-:":~i~M->:~M-<~:-:": ������ >*<~&<&********4 >***>:���������*���������*****  > Phono i Bayview 1182  \ VAN UfFORP BROS.

Many  are to be found in every church in the world.  There are as good Anglicans, or Methodists, or  Roman Catholics, as are the Presbyterians, Baptists, Gongregationalists or Salvationists.   ?  It is a joy and an honor to meet the truly devoted and loyal Christian in the daily turmoil of  business, and to know that he or she has the highest possible ideal in mind and is trying to live  up to that, ideal.  I know that some are foolish enough ,to imagine I, and others like me, think that the Roman  Catholics or Greek Church devotees are not Christian. This is far wrong. Closely all my life I  have been in touch with the Roman Catholics and  have admired many of them as most devoted and  conscientious Christians. Their lives arc a blessing to those who know them. When I and other  writers attack certain claims of the Roman Catholic Church, we have no thought or intention of  hurting the true men and women who are in that  communion in multitudes. We only aim at showing the falsity and insolence of many of the claims  put forward by" the Political Machine within the  Church and not by the Church as a truly spiritual  body.  Any man who .claims to have the power of  sending another man to heaven or hell at will,  should be chased out of the country. He terifies  those who are led from babyhood to believe in  his monstrous claims. He is an impostor and a  traitor to all peoples and nations as well as to  those who believe in his lief. There are tens of  thousands of honest, Christian and enlightened  Roman Catholics desiring to be'freed from the  bondage of this terrible priestcraft. These I  bondage of this terrible priest craft. These I  would gladly help. And from their ranks come  over to Protestantism thousands annually.  BRITAIN AND JAPAN IN ALUANCE.  Viscount Uchida, one of the ablest men in  Japan, says: "It.will, no doubt, he highly gratifying to you, as it is to myself, to find a steady  advancement of friendship between this country  and foreign powers."  ''Above all, our relations with Great Britain  have been constantly growing, in cordiality, while  the revision of the Anglo-Japanese agreement  which was effected last year has, I am sure, given  additional strength and solidity to the alliance."  These are important words. They are far-  reaching. I remember well when the first treaty  was entered into between Great Britain and  Japan, that I wrote to the press, saying the alliance was natural only on one permanent basis.  This was that the two peoples are of the same  Hebrew stock. The ground I then took is this:  The British are descendants of Abraham and  passed over to Britain after their exile in Assyria.  On the other hand, the Japanese are also descended from Abraham and after their exile they  passed Eastward and finally landed in China,  Korea and Japan. The high class, ruling peoples  of these three empires were of Hebraic ancestry.  In time most of them concentrated in Korea and,  Japan. This wovild give a permanent basis for  a treaty of a character such as is embodied in  the alliance now in force between Britain and  Japan.  It is remarkable that never in the history of  either empire did either enter into a similar alliance.

The world is full of answers to prayer,  millions of believers who have perceived  truth are cheered by this knowledge.  The present status of Christianity is largely1  an answer to prayer. Its power ori earth is the  result of activity in praying weaklings who have  had no eivil authority, social prestige or military  force. Its wealth has sprung up despite the  poverty of most of its subjects. Its conspicuous  position has been attained through the agency of  obscure pleaders and toilers. Like its great  Pounder, it has been despised and rejected of  men, yet it lives and flourishes chiefly because its  adherents believe and pray.     ,  The Bible too is an answer to prayier. Its  writers were all "men of prayer. Its sublime  thoughts were largely given through spiritual illumination.  Every good tiling, apart from the material,  owes something to prayer.

THE BRAIN is the human dynamo  wbicb generates human electricity or  vital energy, and the spinal cord and  nerves are tbe instruments for conveying this force to all organs and  tissues.  THESE NERVE8 emanate, on each  side of the spinal cord, through semicircular grooves wbicb are subject to  strain, often producing pressure  upon tbe nerves, thus Interfering with  tbe transmission of this vital energy.  THUS THE SUBLUXATION (slight  displacement) is tbe cause ot bad effects or disease at the end of the  nerve.  A CHIROPRACTOR locates snd art  justs (by hand) the displacement within the spinal column of the human  body.

"Don't worry about us, Jim, we can  get home all right, only we must not  stand here talking any longer. What  are you going to do with Pretty Dick?'  "Send him along witb you with your  Iotas.

"Tbey ain't no good to me. Guess  I don't savvy them properly. Tou taker  a look through them for me. Ain.  that smote there to the west?"  Anstruti^r looked and Jim watched  blm. ,  "No, not there." he aald Irritably."  "Lord! a man'could count the rings'on  a rattler that far. Away beyond on  the next big bench towards the river.  near those clumps of pine."  Anstruther could not see the pines.  He saw a dark line, but that it meant  pines was not obvious to him as It  seemed to Jim'a naked eye.  Mrs. Bolt took the gltsees from him.  "Let me try," she said. "I know what  to look for. That Is half ths battle,"  aad then, after a short scrutiny, she  tsld- . ���������    ���������   \  "Tea, I believe that there la a column  of smoke or mist Just to the right ot  the pines."

'Tou and me win have to rough It  to-ntgbtf but it won't ourt us any, it  we keep up a. good fire."  The other made no objection.

It was a glorious and memorable  ride for all of them. Four perfect  borsemen in a horseman's country.  Such a taste of paradise as, in this  weary old world, generally precedts  trouble.  "How much of this belongs to the  Risky Ranch, Mrs. Rolt?" asked Anstruther.  "All of it as far as you can see."  "None of it." corrected Jim, "except  S few meadows and some water front  on the Fraser as you can't see."  "How annoying you are, Jim. You  know what I mean perfectly well.'  "Only you don't say It, and he doesn't  know."  "Well, It it isn't yours." persisted the  puzzled Anstruther, looking from one  to the other, "why should not anyone  run their cattle over it?"  "They might if they did not need  water or bay.- These two Harrison  boys are trying it now."  "What Jim means, Mr. Anstruther, is  that we have corralled, oh, I beg your  pardon, Kitty, secured the exclusive  right to all th-> water and all the hay  meadows in the district, and without  these the run would not be worth anything. Stock must have water, and in  winter must sometimes have hay."  "I see, but how do you keep your  cattle.   1 don't see any fences."  "We don't keep them, they keep  themselves, in summer, and in winter���������" she broke off abruptly, and  pointed to where a number of slow-  moving beasts were strung out in line  Of march towards the r.ver.  "Do you see that band? Those are  the first of our beasts coming in. For  the next fortnight you will see them,  wandering in by hundreds. They  know the seasons as well or better  'than we do."  "Do you mean that they have bees  out all the summer and are coming in  now of their.own accord?"  "Just that. In all sorts of beautiful  little parks islanded in that black timber; in' groves shady and deep, by  little streams we have hardly seen.,  they have dreamed away their summer  undisturbed and now they are coming  home with their calves behind them,  our income."  "It seems easy. Where does the  work come in?"  Mrs. Rolt turned laughingly in L2r  saddle to Jim.  "Isn't any work, is there. Jim?"  Jim, who was riding in his shirtsleeves, with his coat in a roll at the  back of his saddle, looked meditatively at his own bare corded arms.  "Might be some in the meadows in  '.'skeeter       time,'"      be      Eugges.ed.  Rounding up the strays keeps a man  In tbe saddle quite a while, and there's  some don't hanker after too much  branding and such like, but It'a all In  a lifetime. If It la work It ia better  than any play I ever heard t*������i of.  Qaeaa it I was the boss of the Risky,  I wouldn't change places with anyone."  That is pretty of you, JInt"  He looked at her smiling, no vara  abashed.  "I guess the boas agrees with me,  and be knows England aa well aa he  knows B.C., and haa sampled the best  there is to be had pretty nigh all over."  "Yes, but he had hie fill of England  first, Jim. and he la older."  Her eyes followed the laughing couple which preceded them, as her  thoughts -followed ^Ooapbo's, and the  -pSifi,'ln .bis. honest s������y eyes -was reflected in here. She waa sorry for Iter  old friend, and knew that It waa. ua*-  less, to explain. The old world had  called its. own, and. both, knew that  Kitty had listened to Us call. .  Meanwhile the others had, ridden  ahead, and were now holding up their  band* to. keep the stragglers back.  They left their horses, and stole quietly on tb some tall trees which fringed  a email lake, a blue turquoise set in  the red gold of tbe reeds, and islanded  amongst the grey green of the sage  brush.  For tbe last fifty yards the boy an.,  girl.- they were little more, crept on  their hands and knees, and when they  raised their heads above the reeds  there was a sudden splashing and  scurry as a bunch of mallards sprang  quacking from the water.. In quick  succession four reports followed one  another, and two of the ducks tumbled back headlong Into the lake. For  a moment the rest of the birds looked  aa if they were going straight away,  but some foolish prompting of curiosity brought them bock, swinging in  a circle high overhead.  "Stand still, Miss Clifford," they  heard the Englishman say, "now let  them have It," and again there were  four flashes, but even to the onlookers  It was almost impossible toj distinguish  more than two reports.  Again two birds csme down, not an  aslant on struggling wings, but with  their heads under them, deed In mid  air. km*d instantly, as If by lightning.  "Tbat'a a fins performance, Mies  Clifford. Very few girls at home  could beat that," they heard Anstruther any. "You were too quick.for  me."  "What! didn't you shootr  "No/* be lied gsllant'y. "flee, my  gun ia loaded atill, and be threw open  tbe .reach, showing the two cartridges  which he had slipped In with the rapidity of an old hand almost as he  spoke.  "Then I killed those two myielf."  "Unless tbey died for love of; you."  "And who killed the others?"  "I suppose that you did."  "Oh, nonsense; I'm not going to baileys that."  "WelU we'll take one each then if  I can get them. Give me your hand,  please, for a moment," and under the  transparent pretext of wanting support  whilst be balanced himself upon a partially submerged pine pole, Anstruther managed to retrieve his game.  perhaps be held the little warm hand  a trifle longer and pressed it a trifle  harder tban the circumstances warranted, but the girl's rosy face registered no serious protest  "He's a very fluent liar," muttered  Mrs. Rolt bal- to herself as they rode  up.  "Bags his game very neatly," answered Jim.  "And she's a little fool," said the  lady viciously, but Anstruther neither  heard the criticism nor the praise any  mor" than did Kitty.  In their veins the young blood was  beating so that their ears were deafened to everything except tbe measure of one old song, which once truly  learned becomes the music of a lite-  time.  For tbem the scent ot the sage  brush, tbe hurry and roar of rising  wings, and the blue of. lonely upland  lakes, would be as the keys of paradise as long as they both should live,  bringing hack dreams with which  duck-shooting should have little  enough to do.       '  Unfortunately that song is a duet/  and gives pleasure to two only, so that  though the pools seemed innumerable,  and the glory of the day unstinted, an  end came to Jim*s loquacity. He wa3  all eyes, but his tongue had failed him.  Suddenly as Jim and the boss's wife  followed soberly behind the younger  couple; an owl called from the timber  which they were now skirting.  The two in front had pulled up, and  were waiting for Mrs. Ro't to join  them. When they came alongside Anstruther asked:  "Did you hear that owl, Combe?  Isn't, it early in the day for him to be  calling?, There do you hear him? He  must be quite close to us."  "That ain't no owl,"  "What is it, then?"  "A Chllcoten telling his pals that  there are white men coming. You'll  see the. smoke of their camp as soon  as this timber opens up again. I guess  I'll ride on ahead," and so saying be  put bis -lorse into a gallop.  "Why Is he In such a hurry?"  "I expect he wants to get a glimpse  of their camp before they have had  time to cache anything," replied Mrs.'  Rolt. "Jim is looking for things not  mentioned in the game list.  But when the three reached the Indian camp they found Jim Combe sitting loosely in his saddle, tbe bridle  thrown carelessly on bis horse's neck,  talking with the utmost good temper  to a grey-haired old mummy, as if he  were enjoying a gossip in his native  tongue.  "Says that the tribe is hungry, that  i the wolves have gtown numerous, and  ( the deer all gone back away off," said  he aa tbe others came up, mimicking  the old woman's manner. "Seems like  it, doesn't it?" and be pointed to a  gnat square stack of fresh hides.  There's another stack just back of  that, under those trees. They must  have killed forty or fifty deer. How  many suns have you been hunting?"  he asked, turning.again to the squaw.  Ten sons." showing the number on  her bent claws.  "And how many men stop here?"  "My son. his fader, and two more."  "Who is your sod? What you call  him?"  "Kinet'-.aw," whined the old hag In  a curious sing-song.  "Oh!   cultua Jack, eh?"  "Nawltka, white man's name Cuhus  Jack."  "Then his father ia Khelowna. Ton  Khelowna'e wife, Bmma?"  "Nawltka, me Emma."  Ton don't mean to say that awful  old woman is the chiefs wife." whispered Mrs. Rolt  Tea. She's the prinoess. Ntee princess. Isn't she? Well, we're going to  camp here, Kmrna."  . Anstruther smiled at Kitty. Combs's  seemed a somewhat informal manner  of addressing a princess.  "Not much wood," grumbled the  erone. ,-   '  "Oh, the wood's all right It's a  warn night and we shan't want much."  ��������� ���������'Water very bad,, makes awn sick."  .

Well, think  of 'er. old chappie," and he pointed to  Emma with a grin, and kneeling down  adjusted his camera, aiming it right  Into the faces of the silent group.  "As he did so Bmma disappeared  Into the tent.  "Whoop! Gone to ground," he  Shouted with a laugh, and the four,  rialng with a growl, turned their backs  upon blm.  For a moment he wa* nonplussed,  but the devil of island Insolence bad i  possession of him, and he knew that  Kitty was watching blm. Still on bis  knees he reached tor a long stick from  the fire, and bending forward, tossed  tt so the hot end of tt fell upon the  nearest Indian's bare toot.  Quick as thought the Chllcoten  turned, and for a moment tbe women  drew their breath and feared for what  was to come, but the camera' clicked  ���������nd the fire still divided the aggressor  from his victim.  "Got you, my beauty," said the unconscious artist," with suite your most  engaging smile on," and utterly careless of the dumb wrath In the man's  eyes, he put his camera into its case,  and walked back, laughing, to his  friends.  Mrs. Rolt and Jim. who had returned  too late to Interfere, did not join.in hi  laugh, but the sullen faces of the outraged four, and the sight of Emma, the  beautiful, peeping out to see if all was  safe again, were too much for Kitty,  who laughed till the tears ran down  her cheeks.  "Oh, surely,. Mrs. Rolt,"   protested \  Anstruther,    between    his    peals   of j  laughter, "there is nothing to look so  serious about.   One would think that  you had been photographed.   I didn't  hurt  tbe sulky  brutes,   and   if they [  didn't like being photographed, what i  matter.    You aren't afraid of Indians  In this country, "are you?"  "No, but we don't want enemies.  At any rate, for goodness' sake, stop  laughing. You can see how they hate  it"  It is a curious trait of the Indians,  at any rate of the Far West, that they  themselves seldom or never laugh,  whilst the merest hint that you are  laughing even in the mildest way at  them, puts their backs up immediately.  Like the vast plains and dumb forests through which they roam, they are  by nature sombre, and a laugh is as'  much of an outrage to them as a  thrush's sccg would be to the forest  silence.'

"An Experience Off the Coast of  Newfoundland: Hunting the Hair  Seal" opens the March issue of Rod  and Gun in Canada; published by W.  J. Taylor. Limited, Woodstock. Ont,  and the interest of this article is a  criterion of the interest of thoBO that  follow, which include articles descriptive of outdoqr life from the Atlantic  to the Pacific. Anong these is the  firet of a series of articles on the Culture of Black and Silver Foxes, which  should prove of value to the many  seeking practical information on this  subject. A new feature this,month Is  the creation of a Game Conservation  Department edited by Mr. Frank Hyde,  wherein matters pertaining to the  subject of game conservation will be  freely discussed. As this subject is a  live one at the present time and is  likely to be for some time to come, or  until the improved laws for which good  sportsmen are agitating have been  enacted, this department should prove  of exceptional interest.  Financial Administration.    .  The popular and practical test of  government Is tbe handling of the public accounts, and if the McBride government is to be measured by this  standard and accredited accordingly,  then its record entitles it to, a longer  lease of life than one can speculate on  at present. The first question which  may be asked is, whether the prosperity which the government claims  is continuing. Perhaps the best assurance on this point is the fact that  the actual revenue last year exceeded  the estimates by $3,492,865. ':* The principal Surpluses .were : those items  which indicate progress, such as land  sales. $931,231; land revenue, $171,-  586; timber royalties, etc., $214,809;  probate fees, etc, $160,499; registry  fees, $363,092. At the end of the year  the province had a cash balance in the  bank ot $8,626,647. In two years, the  balance in the public accounts has  changed from. the debit to the credit  side, the change representing a saving  of $4,792,271.   The production of the  province last year reached the enormous total of $134^72,709, an increase  of 25 per cent in one year. The increase in the Agricultural Department  was the greatest, amounting to no less  than six and a half millions in the  year, an increase of 45 per cent.  '���������������������������-������������������ i.-s." '. .���������    '..      '.BJ-mg-  Be  The Railway Policy.  The railway policy which for, two  years has filled so large a share of  the public attention, is a policy content with nothing short of carrying  main trunk lines across the province',  and connecting the transcontinental  railways with the extreme "western  ports.  British Columbia is a province of  mountains, valleys and rivers. ��������� 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 altl these sources of wealth will  be brought into reach of: the steel  roadway, and it.will then be found  chat British Columbia will have a network of railways which will Serve  every accessible point.  Roads and Trails.  Meanwh-is the preliminary work of  roads, trails, and bridges has engaged  the attention of the government, and  under the direction of an i excellent  minister in the Hon. Thomas Taylor,  a sum of money Is being spent which  only a few years ago would'have seemed fabulous. . The amount appropriated this year is $8,000,000, a" sum practically fifteen tinea the amount available when. Me. McBride first assumed  the reins ot office. It is no longer, the  plough and the shovel which alone are  used in the construction of proviheia!  highways, but modern mechanical appliances and' a free use of surfacing  material: Is giving the public a: far  better clasB of road.

This is the record of Mr. McBride's  administration of tte affaire of tl^e  province for eight yean. Itts a record of success bcyoad the wildest  hopes, success based upon sn inteluV  gent conception. Sad a wise develop-  ment of the unrivalled resouces of the  province, a success which assures con-  tinned prosperity in the future, it is  inconceivable that any reasonable  body of men would wish to shift the  reins' ot governn������������at That is. hardly  a question for debate, but it does occur to any fair resffewer of the situation to suggest: that such splendid  service and suck notable results entitle the administration to something  more than woods' of pralso, and that  the least Mr; McBride and Ids cofc  leagues have a right to expect from  the electoral* IS "a nnaalawus endor-  sation of their wota-  WE HAVE 6 HOUSES LISTED BE  low tbat we can deliver subject to  the first deposit.
