The Liberal government in B.C. seems to hive come through vester- day's general election with a cousid- following. The report- ed election of seven Independents would indicate that the political senti- ment of that Province Is unsettled, and that people are breaking away from-the !n very many constituencies there were three and lour candidates, and the old parties suffered from'the breaking up of the vote by these contestants represent- ing different groups. The Liberal baity undoubtedly suffered more harm fn this respect than did the Conserva- tive. -In Iwo instances seats were lost because of two Liberal candidates the party vote. In.

There does not seem the remotest chance for this during the. present sittings. On the principle that justice should not he denied nor delayed to any man. there-is a call that something should be do.ue to ,remedy tho present state of things so that matters may have a chance along eipeditiously In the various suits which'have to be decided there is always the; chance of things such as grain and land being lied up, and.sp contributing towards working an economic wrong.
