Getting Down to Facts.
Mr, Ross Rflliertson who so highly
endorsed the icmuling of the Curliin
charter when he spoke liefore the Iln.il-
wuy Committee of the House of Commons at Ottawa, has again been expressing his views upon the same subject, but this time liefore the house
itself,
In an able speech, in part he said :
I think, that it is in the interests of
Canada to establish a precedent that
there are some parts of this country
rich enough to justify lhe construction
of a railroad for its own sake. Canada
has been brought up in the belief that
Ihe people ought to lie extremely
thankful to any group of individuals
who form themselves into a corpor-
poration and accept enough of the
country's money to build a railway for
their own lieneHt. Session after session
Canada's incorporated benefactors
come here, and lhey always raise the
same old cry: They are going to develop the country's resources, Yes,
develop the country's resources, on the
usual terms—a subsidy big enough to
build a railroad, which lhey then bond
for a good deal more than it cost, and
then the bonds remain forever as a tax
upon the unfortunate people who have
to use the railroads. This hill proposes
to allow certain individuals to develop
the country at their own expense. 1
understand that theC, P.R. under its
various names, has liniiii in the United
States over 2,200 miles of load to develop the resources of the United
Stales. I understand that all this mileage in the United States is built without a dollar's worth of public aid in
land or money and people, who ought
to know, tell me that the alien farmer
gets lower rates on Ihe lines which the
C. P, ll, built bi the United States
with its own money, than the Canadian
fanner obtains on the lines which the
C. P. R. has built in Canada with this
country's money. So the C. P. R,
gives the American farmer, who is
never taxed a cent forks henelil, lower
rates than it gives to the Canadian
tanner who has been taxed up to tlle
neck lo supplv Its subsidies.
The 0. P. 11. does not do this because
Sir William Vim Horn loves the American farmer better than theCaniidiiiti
farmer. Nn, Mr. Chairman, The C.
I', ti. has to lower ils freight rates iu
the United Slates ill order to get a
share of llle business away fnnn the
competing lines, And theC. P. ti. has
been able lo keep up its freight rales
in the Canadian North-went, because
there are no competing lines. I am
trying to view tlle request of our fellow-Canadians in the llouudary Creek
district as I would like Ihem to view a
similar application frum myself, if they
had the power lo deny me my rights,
as this parliament has the power to
deny them their rights. To reject this
liill is to place our fellow-Canadiuns in
Boundary Creek al the mercy of Ihe
0, P. It, Il is to say that commerce
between the Boundary Creek country
and eastern Canada shall be taxed for
all Ihe (raffle will bear. I don'l. think
that it is in the interest of Canada lo
i'eiard,the development of theBoundai'V
Cieek country hy placing the 0. P. R.
in a position to exact extortionate and
oppressive rates. I don't think that it
is in the interests of Canada to refuse
Ihe G. T. R. a chance to enter that
country and gel into competition with
theC, P, R„and take all the freight
which eastern manufactures and wholesale merchants can offer. I am a protectionists, but I am in favor of protecting this country's interests liy a
tariff, and not liy refusing the just demands of the Canadian people of the
Boundary Creek district,
I lielieve public opinion generally
has approved theaclion of tlie Railway
Committee in grunting this charter,
and I am perfectly certain it has approved and endorsed theaclion of the
Minister of Railways. I have heard
opinions expressed liy scores of people,
merchant's and shippers, of both politi
ial parties, in Toronto aud elsewhere,
since the ineeling of the committee, as
to what the committee did and I find
nine-tenths of the opinions expressed
are in favor of tbe grunting of the
Kettle River Valley Railway charter.
In fact, the only men I heaid talk the
other way were men who were not
shippers or merchants, but who were
doing the old flag business at the bidding of the 0. P. R. Mark then, Mr.
Chairman, that there is no danger that
public opinion will allow the Boundary
Creek country to be drained nf its
wealth for the benefit of United Slates
cities. The granting of this charter
will not relieve Ihis government or ils
successors from their obligation to
protect Canadian interests by the Imposition of export duties, and, as a protectionist anil as a Conservative, I say
that this country's Interests can be
butter protected by the imposition of
export dulies than hy Ihe establishment, of a railway monopoly.
