DEALING PERMANENTLY WITH THE DOUKHOBORS The enforcement officers have arrested and sent tj prinn nine Douk-hobors tar refusing information Is the census enumerator Even when laced with a prison term they still refused to give the infnrmaticn There are still five hundred to be dealt wifiv It is impossible that the Gsvemmcir can let the matter stand where it is the law must lie enforced with regard to the rest Those being sentenced are given a term of three months and it Is understood that it Is the intention cf the government to place them in guarded camps All this seems useless unless It is preliminary to definite segregating of tlic troublesome faction of the Doukhobors Ottawa must be made to understand federal responsibility and it should be passible for tho two governments ts get together in some arrangement for the permanent segregation cf these people in widely separated penal comps or compounds as has so often been advocated by The Gazette and which up to the present would seem the most effective solution Those familiar with Doiikhobor troubles heartily agree with the Vancouver Daily Province in pointing out the direct connection of the federal government in the latest offences Under the caption "Doukhobors and the Province says: There is a warrant out for the arrest of six Doukhobors of the Grand Forks district on a charge of obstructing the census commissioner and apparently the warrant was issued upon the commissioner's authority It seemed for days as if thrre might be the making of some interesting politics between Ottawa and Victoria upon the execution of these warrants Despatches from Grand Forks suggested that officers of the provincial and Royal Mounted police the advice ot superiors" had refused to make the arrests But now it appears Attcrnsy-General Pooley has given specific orders to the provincial police officers to execute the warrants says a recent despatch fram Grand Forks "have been given ta SergcaiL William Greenwood who Is getting in touch with his superiors and asking for reinforcements os it is presumed thcro will be a lively time before the arrests are made" There was a highly-hfterestlng suggestion about all this What it came to was an assumption that Mr Pooley was seizing the opportunity to impress Ottawa with a due realisation of the chronic nuisance created by the fanatical tenets aift practices of that particular sect of the Doukhobors which calls itself the Sons of Freedom If that is the true statement of fact if Mr Pooley did actually hesitate for a moment before be honored the writ of the Dominion Government against the Doukhobors we are bound as British Columbians to have a certain sympathy for him There is no doubt about the duty and responsibility in this particular affair of course and Mr Pooley is not the man to need any reminder of it He has to enforce the law of Canada in British Columbia and he has to enforce It even when it is no more than the Census Act and when it is invoked against the defiance and contempt of a recalcitrant sect of religious fanatics We can rest assured if the provincial police have bean entrusted with the execution cf these federal warrants and no matter what the "lively may be before the arrests are made that the arrests will be made and that these Sons of Freedom who spit upon the laws cf Cana-day will be duly brought in But It is all the more salutary if we must have more of this chronic nuisance of the Doukhobors that we should have it on an issue which involves the Dominion Government The Provincial Government has repeatedly sought the co-dperatlon of Ottawa in the troublesome problem of dealing with these irreconcilable people and Ottawa as far as the record shows has always stood aloof upon tho strict letter of the Constitution It was the duty of the province to enforce the law against crime if the Doukhobors were defying the law the responsibility was the province's But this time the ease was a little different While it was a ease of burning and blowing up British Columbia schools or of parades of naked Russian peasants upon British Columbia highways Ottawa might loex on from afar Now it is the express authority of Ottawa itself which is flouted and it is an officer of the Dominion Government who is derided and insulted and It is he who Invokes the protection of police and magistrates If this latest Instance of Doukhobor nonsense does nothing else at least It may have the good effect of securing the attention of Ottawa at lost The Easiest Way to Save fTEPOSlTlNO a definite portion of your

appeared in Tuesday's Nelson Daily News: To The Editor of The Nelson Dally News Sir: The article "Railways and the Motor Transport" selected by you from the Grand Forks Gazette and recently published In your columns was indeed a worthy and timely one A few years ago it was the custom when a newspaper sought to defend the operations of a railroad to libel the offending Journal as "the mouthpiece cf a transportation trust" and all manner of literary brickbats were aimed at the unfortunate editor's head Fortunately times have changed People are becoming more open minded and no longer look upon railway companies as all-devouring monsters The article emanating teem the editorial office at the Grand Forks Gazette is one that could well be published the country over to set forth a problem now vexing all of Canada the truck versus the train Under the inconvenience of unavoidable curtailed train services the public are beginning to realise that they ewe something to the railway companies The fact is at last In" of how closely the success of Canada is related to the successful operation of the railroads In a province such as British Columbia where there are great sections of not overly populous dltsrlcts there 1s room for but me mode of transportation to operate with success If truck and railway are both competing for the available trade one or the other ta going to suffer That it should be the railroad wbo faithfully winter and summer through snowdrifts or cloudbursts keep up their service no matter what the cost seems rather an injustice To illustrate the unfairness of the competition we will personify the services thus: Says the truck "I am a very neat Job worth $2500 manufactured In Detroit At the start of my run I am filled up with 10 gallons of gasoline originating from Oklahoma crude I am oiled up with a lubricant refined In Pennsylvania and I roll along on a set of tires manufactured In Akron My boss doesn't pay a cent of trade tax In any of the towns through which I pass and yet they load me up with freight About all he has to contribute to the up-keep of roods I sizzle along on ta a yearly license to the province for my operation and one for the driver neither of Which are exharbltant At the end of my run I am stowed away In my back yard and the boss even have to pay ground rent for me let alone a tax Moreover the boss has only to pay out wages to my driver which ta so different to the flock of employees a train supports" Says the locomotive: "Well I'm one of the best Jobs ever turned out of the chops in Montreal I set my owners bock a pretty penny too My tender ta filled up with good British Columbia coal at frequent intervals for I'm a terrible eater when I'm working The rolling stock you see swinging behind me are all efficient and expensive pieces of equipment manufactured by a famous Canadian ear company Even the rails that I click over come from an eastern Canadian steel mill As for the ties that support the rails and the poles that carry the telegraph wires why good old British Columbia furnished them all There's quite a gang of employees on this train too see engineer fireman conductor hiokeman all drawing good pay and If I were handling a regular passenger train there 'd be on express messenger a baggageman dining car steward sleeping car conductor waiters and porters "Every town I pass through there ta an agent and perhaps an assistant I see dozens of section men every time I travel and they are all on the company payroll too Why I could go on and on telling you of the people dependent on my staying on the Job "Before I quit however I would like to mention that my company pays taxes for every Inch of land I travel over and they pay trade licenses in the various districts too it seems a tough break to me that they should have to pay for the up-keep of the roads over whlqh my gasollned competitor travels but true "One more thing I hu bring to your attention When I oome to the WATEB ACT MAKE LOOK
