Had His Eye on MeBrides Chair
The House then Weill into
committee on lengthy series ol
measures, namely, the Southern
Gkaungan .Railway Hill, the
Ramloops and Yellowlioad Puss
Railway Bill, the'BrltlshjColura-
hia Central Railway Bill, the Act
to incorporate the Oanadian plate
c.luss insurance Co., tho Act
relating to the Union steamship
Co. of British Columbia, the B,
l.'. Northern uud Mackenzie
Valley Railway Bill,'the'Ael to
revise, ratify mul [confirm the
Cowichun, Alberni und Rupert
Railway Co. Act, the Act to in
corporate the Southeast Kootenay Railway Co.
There wns considerable debate
ou several of those measures before they gut through, notably
un the Southeast Kooteuay Hill,
where there wns u tight over
clause 28 t.l' the proposed
measure, which grants llie company power In ncquire coal uiul
nil luiitl in llie district, and lo
sell or otherwise dispose ul the
stv.no. Mr. Patterson (Islands)
opposed ihis. but Ross (Fornio)
|i 4>lnled out lhat the company
hud already acquired these rights
when incorporated us it coal and
oil company, uud thul llie clause
merely confirmed these powers
to the Railway company.
Mr. Carter-Cotton differed,
but Mr. Price Gibson said that
ihe point hud been very carefully considered by the railway
committee-, and the conclusion
hud been arrived ut thut, in
order to enable the company to
llo.it lin-ir project and build the
railway, it wus necessary to
give them this clause, otherwise
the railway might noi be built
for years, with the result that
the province would, for an
indefinite period, be deprived of
its benefit-and of a large revenue.
Reports were adopted regarding the Bella Coola uud Fraser
Valley Railway Co. Act, the
Knmloops uud Yellow-head Pass
Railway Act, the B.C. Central
Railway Act, the Canadian plate
(lliiss Insurance Co. AcllheCow-
ichan, Alberni nnd Port Rupert

eusi Kootenay Railway Co. Act.
The following hills were reported complete wilh amendments:—

the Union Steamship Co. of

tinned, Mr. Slewarl Henderson
(Yale) aohlovod a small victory-
Ihe first by Ihe way. lluit has
gladdened the unhappy gent Ionian's heart since the passage of
his famous (or infamous) Wig
Hill last session. Quito suddenly this afternoon, Mr. Henderson evinced a violenl dislike lo
the thriving city of Kuinloops.
Now. in section 8 of this Ash
croft. Bakerville ami Port
George Railway Co. Ael. Kuinloops is mentioned us an alternative terminus lo Asherofl.
This the soul of Henderson
could not endure. Kuinloops
preferred to Ills own Asherofl?
Neverr! Anil he raised a roar
and culled mi the Opposition for
Mr. .1. A. Miictloiialil (Ross-
hind) leader of the Opposition,
promptly rose on hearing tho
plaintive wail of Ills follower,
ami denounced the hill in uu
measured terms for having what
Im called 'a roving terminus".
There was, said lie of Rossland,
no precedent iu the railway his
lory of Canada fur such a thing
ami he warmly supported Iho
iiieinhcr for Yule in moving thul
iln- words "oi- Kuinloops" he
struck out nl set-lion :i.
Then he was sorry he hud
spoken. Por up rose the lengthy
form of the Hon. I-'. .1. Pulton,
whose ivsitlcnlial city was being
so unkindly discriminated
'-Hoes Hie honorable member
for Rossland say ihal there is no
precedent for a railway company
being given whal he calls a rov
ing terminus!'" quoted IhoProvIn-
cinl Secrelary. ■■Well. I can tell
him lh»l there is. uiul on.- made
by his own parly, loo."
•■Where, limn?" asked the
member foi' Rossland, with some
Ileal.      "Tiie    Grand    Tronic
Pacific Railway Co." replied the
imperturbable Pulton, resuming
his seal with gravity,
A wild hurst of merriment
from belli sides of tho House
greeted this clever and palpable
ilil Dignified and elderly members rolled in their seats and
nudged each other and yelled
with laughter.
Bui the member for Rossland
sal Iii his place, sileni and appalled. What a break, oh, what
a break! It would have been
bad enough coining from any
other member on his side of llio
House. Hut from him. the leader of Ihe Opposition, the chief
Liberal in the House, and. worse j
than all. Ihe prime mover in the
investigation into Kai-En Island
—that "roving terminus" of the
railway company which ruled
his masters ut Ottawa. He
glared a I the unconscious Henderson, who had unwillingly led
lum into this trap; and he
glared at the Hon. Mi'. Pulton,
who eyed him with a 'stony
British stare".
The Kai-En Island special com
niitlee has now begun to lake on
definitely the character which
those who knew llie motives of
the persons requesting il had
already anticipated. Failing to
expose the nefarious crimes of
which the governmenl was sup
posed to have been guilty, Mr.
J. A. Maedonald, leader of the
Opposition nnd mover for the
committee, has stooped to an
attack of the very lowest character on some half-dozen .unfortunate private persons. As fur as
the visionary misdoings of the
Government are concerned, the
enquiry is already a dismal fiasco;
bul the member from Rossland
is taking a iiinnl.v revenge by
striving through coarse innuendo
anil low-minded insinuations, to
harass those whose position does
not enable them to retaliate.
'I'lie funny point aboul Ihe affair
is Uiul, tho Government having
coiiie oil with the Hying colours
its innocence merited, here are
lh.) taxpayers of the province
mulcted heavily in an expensive
enquiry ou ihe part of Mr.
Maedonald into the actions of
private Individuals
'I'he committee held another
session Thursday evening uiul
some more information though
by no means of the sort the
leader of the Opposition desired.
Tin' examination of the Hon.
R. P. Ul'OOIl was concluded.
Earnest enquiry has failed to
make him oul a criminal, und
the disappointment of ihe Op.
position is very keen.

He appeared to be u very capable surveyor, bul the most careful cross-examination ou the purl
of Mr. Mlicdotulld failed to prove
that he was anything else, oven

deed uf villany.    Thus, having
turned Mi' Ritchie inside out,
and obi allied nothing bin u largo

Por three weeks Mr. Maedonald,
the rest of. the Opposition, anil
the Liberal press, have beon
,-iliiising Ihe Government for noi
allowing Mr. Anderson to bo
examined before. Now they see
thai the riovernine.il only kept
Mr. Anderson hack mil nf kindly mercy to the Opposition especially Mr. Maedonald. And
Mr, Maedonald wished that the
Government hud chloroformed
Mi-. Anderson before it allowed
him in lie a witness.
Mr. Anderson is not a gentle
man who pushes himself forward
very much in public life. Also
he is not ;i Lil.eral. Those two
fuels combined may account for
Mi-. Mttctlonald's luck of acquaintance wiili Mr. Anderson's style
uiul manners—a luck which led
to his discomfiture lust night.
Por Mi'. Anderson has not gol

milu antl dove-like Bodwell. Nor
tloes he affect llie suave politeness of the lion. R. P. Green.
Not that he is rude or unkind -
oli, im. But somehow Mr. Maedonald found him different. Also
Mr. Anderson, who has been
long in the province, knows
quile as much aboul Mr. Maedonald us it is gootl for one iiuiii
to know aboul another — with

"The position is this; the bill of

The Kiii-Eu affair, from being
a fiasco, has become a farce, not,
worse luck, al popular prices.
Proceedings opened stormily
yesterday afternoon. Prayers
had been barely concluded when
Mr. Maedonald. leader of the
Opposition, whose thoughts during the prayer had evidently
been characterized by anything
but christian meekness, arose
and asked the Premier whether,
in view of the adverse vote of
yesterday, lie intended io act in
a constitutional manner and
A ripple of derisive laughter
run round the House at this impudent piece of gallery-play,and
even Mr. McBride had some
trouble in controlling his amusement, sufficiently to answer the
member from Rossland seriously
The Premier said thai he had
uo Intentions of taking any no-
lice of the incident, It was it
mistake as the adverse vote alluded lo by his honourable
friend was due loll miscount, and
nobody knew il belter llian the
member for Russian.!.
Mr. .Maedonald said lhat lliere
was no mistake, ns ihu vote was
taken Iwiee. il.iiugliier and ill

" If il was. thai makes Ibe mis j
lake bigger". I
Mr.   Hawthornihwaito asked;
the member for Rossland if ho
J would like a vole of ciuitidence.
Mr. Oliver butted in. "All in
good time", he observed with an
j air of jaunty confidonoo.
Mr.   Hawthornihwaito   eyed
the professional interrupter from
i tho Delta with frigid disapproval s,,n <Vl,lt'1 w

outrageous request, The member for Delia might have ruined

The member for Delta was the

concluded the representative of
The House cheered and laughed uproariously, and John Oliver
blushed self-consciously.
The Attorney-General then
took a hand, and jumped heavily
on the mover of the motion,
which he described as absurd.
Mr. Oliver expressed his opinion of the Premier, his disappointment at the refusal lie had
met wilh, and his forebodings of
nameless evil, in a long and bitter tirade.
Then the Speaker put the motion to ihe House, and il was defeated by '2'1 voles to 18,
Mr. Ross (Fernie) arose and
politely asked the leader of the
Opposition if the Premier's chair
looked as large and inviting to
him as it did on the previous
There are some impertinences
to which few men are gifted with
llie ability to make an adequate
retort. This was one of them.
Mr. Maedonald glared in helpless
rage at the member for Kernie,
while llie House grinned aloud.

of llie Opposition find. Stuitrl
Henderson tried to prompt him
on his left with the witty spirit
of Asherofl, while John Oliver,

vogue oil the Delia hay fields.

Helpless and silent, Hie unfortunate mombor for Rossland was
forced to lot the insull lie had

Ever since my residence hero

Without a single desire for bene-
tits exeepl other than public.
One of the truest words Mr.
Galliher uttered in the Wentworth Hall was that because of
the United Stales policy of high
protection Canada's freetraders
could not carry out their principles and were compelled to tight
opponents with liorown weapons,
and get a dulyofSL1 per thousand
feel upon lumber. At Dr. King's
honest remarks, "let us make this
question u public, instead of a
political one" our heart went up
in sympathy as we remembered
that our utterances had been not
in vain.
Cannot we gel up a monster
petition for our (7) members to
tho Dominion Parliament for not
only >>- per thousand feet upon
lumber, but to equal the Slates
along. Ihe line, even if another i'i
per cent is added according to
promise of congress. Jack
should be as good as his master.
This plan would boost Cranbrook
with manufacturing industries
and you would see her grow.

All good business men try lo
