luck Will Continue.
MOR19 SUPPRBSSHP, PAPERS,
At (lio time <>t writing the crisis
scorns to ho paused. Si}' Wilfrid is
imt dissolving Parliament, and tbe
Opposition Is preparing tu vote sup
ply ns occnslon ulters. The Premier
nl Manitoba and one id bis Minis
liis havo been at Ottawa, mid have
gone hiiini' satisfied tbat tbe obnox
ions nud Insulting legislation against
tli.it province will be withdrawn,
Though thero is no ofllclul announce-
moid of tlio Abandonment of Clause
tiiio. business is proceeding oa tbe
assumption thai thr Premier will cut
it out. ll this view proves wrong,
tho vote of supply will soon cense
ami deadlock will come again.
A Wiser Second Thought.
Promlbr Roblin has a long talk
witli Sir Wilfrid Laurier. He re
c'clvod from the "Federal Premier such
assurances that ho went away satis-
Hod Hint tho Manitoba lists would
be let ttlono. There is to be no adding on or strikiug off by Federal
ollicers. All that is to be left of the
Clause One is the power tu allocate
tho registered voters to their proper
polls in those ridings where federal
and provincial districts cut each
other, This mechanical work is to
be done by judges, and all those
districts where tbe boundaries are
not eul are to be loft severely alone
That is what the Opposition demanded at the start. it is what will
have to be . doue if supply is tn be
voted and business proceed in the
usual way. While it is too soon to
say thai the Government has abandoned all the rest, that is believed
to be tlie situation.

CRANBROOK   FAT   AND   LEAN   BASEBALL   TEAMS S
With this understanding, two or
threo pages of estimates have been
voted. Meanwhile two resolutions of
condemnation have boon debated and
voted down with the regular majority. Tbe lirst was tin- motion of Mr.
Lake concerning timber limits, which
set forth that:
"This House regrets that tbe pres
ont G.ovornment has permitted the
improvident alienation of immense
areas ol valuable timber limits,
which are now held for speculative
purposes to the detriment of the people and now records its opinion that
such full ami unrestricted investigation should be made and such available proceedings taken as may he
necessary to revest ia tbe Crown any
timber lands in rospost to which
fraud or imposition lias been practised."
In tbe discussion Mr. Luke, Mr.
Ames and Mr. Bristol set forth tbe
facts nltccting these limits which
have been brought out in the Committee and elsewhere, with the help
of tho long suppressed "original
documents." Neither the Minister of
the Interior nor any of his coll
leagues attempted n reply. That
was left to Mr. Burrow, tho operator
and speculator, who, in bis own
name, and In the name of the Imperial Pulp Company and divers
other names, hns acquired tho most
Valuable limits in tbe Western country, and to Mr. Mnebonabl of Plctou
the vigorous and sleepless obstructor
of the Investigation in tho commit*
tee.    The    discussion dealt    with the
following;
So
Klcmeiits   III   The   I'i
The immense holdings of Mr. Burrow, all obtained for tritlling sinus
uiul wit boal effective competition in
n few years while his brother in law
was head of i he depart ment.
The mysterious system of tenders,
under which ihe Burrows connection
always managed to succeed, nntl ul
ways by a very small margin; the
double nud treble cheques producing
a series of coincidences, ull happy
ones for Burrows, with lhe chnncos
sovornl millions to one against thoir
neeiilentnl occurrence,
The solitary Instnncc, formerly
much quoted by the Government,
whoro nn Immensely valuable limit
went for a low price to a mnscrvth
tlve bidder, which iruusnctlon turn
ed out to have luyl Mr. Burrows in
the background to push the thing
Ihrough, and to have returned him
$80,000 in iinmeiliiite cash for bis
share of a property sold by Hie (lov-
ofnmonl ror ?fl,000,
The faet that practically all the
available timlier is locked up by
speculators who ate holding it for
ati advance.
These and other matters seem to
call for an investigation where there
shall tie no professional obstruction,
and where lhe whole truth cun be
learned, and Hie uounliy put In a
position to recover any timber property lost by fraud. But the majority bus decided otherwise, and tbe
timlier grabbers hold their own, or
ial her the people's own.
TllK BOSS RTKLlfl,
The oilier motion,   moved by Col,
Worthlngl    condoning the   conduct
of the Militia Department in the
Boss Kille deal. This business is
pretty well understood la tho Country, H is known tbat the Boss
Company ban made, or is making,
02,11110 rilles at, $25 each, with bayonets at *fi.2fi each, aud various other
extras, bringing up the weapons
when Inspootcd to a cost of $.01 each,
or something near double the price
paid for those Lee Knliclds bought
Irom the War Olllee twelve yenrs ago
It, Is also known that thn Government iiiaile lhe contractor a present
of   l'J acres     of laud on  the  Heights
of Abraham, and admits free of duty
all his material and such of finished
or partly finished portions of the
ride as be may choose to import;
that he brings in from tbe Siat.es
many parts, ami thut he could not
muke a ride in bis shops if foreign
source of supply were closed to him.
lt is further known that the Government has financed his operations by
paying him in advance on progress
estimates. Lastly it is best known
of all, because it is a mutter of personal observation of the Militia,that
after several years delivery of these
rides the militia do not use them if
they can help it. Tbe marksman at
the rifle ranges do uot use them at
all. The Mounted Police, which absolutely requires an effective weapon,
sent them back two or three years
ago aad has never taken them again.
A long Ust of accidents has been reported as the result ol experiments
With these rities. These facts were
brought out in the debate by Dr,
Worthington, Mr. Northrup, Mr.
Fowler and tbe Opposition Leader.
Tbe Minister of Militia defended tlie
Boss Itille und tbe contract. Col.
Ham. Hughes commended tlie rifle
but did not undertake to justify the
terms of the contract.
THK HODGINS CHARGES.
The committee of five appointed to
investigate the charge of padding the
accounts of the Transcontinental
Railway contracts bus beard the
testimony of the accuser, Major
Hodglns, He testilies that he was
appointed District Kngineer at a salary of Mi000 a year on his return
from Houth Africa, where be served
during the Boer War mud remained
as Chief of the railway constructing
staff, under Sir Percy Glrouard,
His experience oa the Transcontinental, according to ids sworn testimony, was briefly this:
Tlie tjuebec Classification,
He was placed in charge of Section
K, one of tbe heaviest on the road,
extending from Winnipeg eastward,
with headquarters at Kcuora, Contractor McArthur was considered to
have a hard contract, and has not
always mado satisfactory progress.
Contracts are at schedule prices for
-olid rock, boulders, gravel, saad
and other substances. It was the
business of the subordinate engineers
under Major Hodgins, to classify
tbe matter taken out, subject to his1
orders and correction. Major Hod
i'.ins was advised by Government
Commissioner Young to upply the
.Juebec classification, and ho visited
Ibe Quebec end to study that system i
He found there matter classed as sii
per cent rock where tbe rock was not
solid ami where he and a Grand
Trunk Pacific Kngineer considered
,io to -It) per cent rock a high class
ideation, |
WHKBK HODGINS   oB.IKCTKD.
In his own district Major Hodglns
was requested by two Trnnscontlnen |
tal Commissioners, Young and Held,
to give a "liberal" classification, us
the contractor was having a hard
time. But Major Hodgius could not
see his way (dear to certify to solid \
rock where there was no rock, and
be suggested to tlie Chief Kngineer
that the principle of "force classification" be adopted instead. This
technical term means the payment to
tbe contractor of the actual cost of
work done ut particular places, plus
Ml per cent for equipment and incidentals. The method Ih commonly
applied where exact classification Is
impossible nn account of disagree
ment, or because quantity cannot
be measured or the substance is uot.
Included in tbe schedules, Major
Hodgius held that If concessions
wero made to hasten the work, It
should be dono openly and above
board iu this    wuy rather     tliau by
certifying rock   where none   existed,
according to the Quebec method.
PARLIAMENT MISLED.
Chief Kngineer Lumsden seemed
willing to resort to "force" provided the Commissioners consented
Major Hodglns referred it to them
and they refused consent. Thereupon he continued to follow the conditions of the contract. This contradicts the statement which Mr. Parent, Chairman of the Commission,
presented to Parliament, that Major
Hodgins wns dismissed because he
undertook to favor the contractors
by applying "force classification" to
their work. He says he only asked
leave to apply It, and moreover he
was continued in bis position long
after that, and only dismissed wlien
he refused to over-classify.
WHY HK WAS DISMISSED.
At length tlie Commission sent an
"inspecting engineer" over Major
Hodgons' district. This officer talked with subordinate engineers on the
works, ufter which they began to
send in enormously increased per-
rentages of rock. There was a
jump from 31,000 to 57,01(0 cubic
yards in the next monthly return,
while the cheaper material decreased.
Major Hodgins made examinations,
found the quantity of rock excessive,
eut down the statement to the right
figure and sent in his return. Aftpr
that the crisis arrived and be was
dismissed. He was retired because
be would not certify that sand was
rock.

W.J.Howsor, and tbe Hon. Dr. .1. II.
Young, Minister of Education, was
beyond question or doubt the great
est success yet scored in that line in
Cranbrook. It should be remeni
hered that the notice of tbe visit.
came In at about ft p.m. of the even
ing before, and that left but a bare
day to make arrangements und get
tilings in ship shape. However, the
different committees worked with a
will, knowing their time wus most,
precious and llie result was, not a
success in part, or in some respects,
but all along the line. In point ol
attendance thero wn-s nothing to he
found fault with except want of more
splice. The audience, it is hardly
necessary to stale embraced men of
every shade of politics, nud Hie
ladles would hnve been present,

sponsible for i lie nrrnngemonts hud
only known ol their wIbIioh to hear

file manner.
Dr. J.H.Voung, the Minister of
education, ufter commenting on tho
pleasure thut It afforded him to meet
a Ornnbrook audlenre, entered Into
some details of the g ial rdurn-tiou
of the children, the future citizens ol
the Province. He said that it was
the intention of tlie Government to
'provide the children with all the
books they need in tiieir school, even
tO  copy   books,      flee  of  Charge.     He
nlso said, that the Government in
tended to provide every school with
a Union Jack whicli would be hols
ted every morning with suitable pat
rtotlc songs and kept Hying while the
school   was  iu  session.
He was followed by the Attorney
General, Hon .1 W, Dowser, who
attacked the rottenness of the .id

lie remembered the lust time he was
In Crnnbrook with his friend the Pre

a*lees   below       SSBfO,     but     it   WOS  still
colder the night when the result of
the Cranbrook poll wus nnnouncod
What a reception the Premier re
ceived only those present enn duly
appreciate. He stood for minutes
waiting for the applause to subside,
and still kept on waiting. He snid
that it was a pleasure to again ad
dress an audience in good old Cran
brook, und all tlie better pleased
that he had before liim tbe members
of the Young Men's Conservative
Association, He paid a special tri
bate to tlie memory of Colonel Baker, Baying that the Colonel was his
lirst and staunch friend when he
first ventured on political waters.
That Sir Wilfrid Laurier was responsible for the crimes ol his ministers.
That he cannot escape responsibility
for tbe doings of these men, and that
the personality of Sir Wilfrid should
not be allowed to come between the
electorate uud their duty ut tbe coining election, That the province was
tired of tlie solid seven representing
the province ut Ottawa, and that
Mr. Borden was making a gallant
tight to have the elections held on
the same day throughout tbe Dominion. In closing the Premier paid
a graceful compliment to Dr. King,
and Bald that he find tlie friendship
and respect of every member of the
house. He thanked the audience for
the very kindly reception he und bis!

St. Kugene group at Moyie, and the
Sullivan and North Star groups at
Kimberley.
The Cambrian is a property lying
under Moyie lake; it Is now held
under Crown Grant. A double compartment shaft is being sunk through
the alluvial deposits on the bed ol
Moyie hike a couple of hundred feet
rrom the east hank; it has now
reached a depth of 00 feet from the
surface of tho water. The manage
menl expect to reach bedrock by
sinking ten feel farther.   Three shifts
day are now nt work, and an air
compressor, two pumps and drilling
machinery have boon installed.
The     Aurora group, ou     tho west
