THK House of Commons, by n>
straight party vote {save that La-
vergne, Robertaille and Verville,
Liberals, voted with tbe Opposition), haa rejected Mr. Monk's motion against the payment of further
bonuses to immigrants. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier himself appealed to his followers to maintain the bonus system
and one of bia supporters went so
far aa to hope tbat many millions
would yet be paid to bring Immigrants to Canada. In the discus
sion lust week, Mr. llorden, Mr
Lennox, Mr. Oockshutt, Mr. Robe
taillc, the latter a Liberal, condemned the bonus system as calculated to bring inferior immigrants,
This argument has had tbe support
of Mr. Oliver, now Minister of the
Interior, who, waa an energetic opponent of the bonus system. Several facts came out prominently in
the discussion,
The immigration returns are evidently padded, since 200.000 settlers
reported could not be found In 11)06
by the census enumerators.
Bonusod immigrants, claascd aa
farm laborers, ure thronging the
towns Instead of going on the landa.
Recent immigrants, many of them
bonused, furnish twice their proportion of the population of Canadian
prisons, lunatic asylums, hospitals
and charitable institutions.
Bonused immigrants are evidently
less independent and useful than
those who come without assistance.
Hooking agents who get the work
for quantity and not quality of immigrants are the real bonus seekers.

WHAT IT WILL COST.
We have now tho statement of the
Transcontinental Commission of the
estimated cost of tho Grand Trunk
Pacific from Moncton to Winnipeg ns
ready for operation, hut without
rolling stock.
The length of the Hue is 1,801,
miles and the average cost, now estimated is J6S.425 por mile, making
the total cost $111.-182.125.
Thla is different from the promise
on which the Government carried the
Bill. The statement of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, his ministers, and their
supporters, were that the cost
would not exceed more than B0.000.-
000.
Tbe Conservative members contended thnt tho section referred to,
could not he built for tbat sum, but
When it is   at   all   possible,   it ial   Milk    Shakes
much better not to remove any crop | Stewarts
but apples from     the     orchard land
after    the trees are planted.    When
it is considered that the apple trees
are to   bear crops   for fifty yeara or
more on   the   same land,    it     may
easily be understood    that tho treea
to do their   best   will need     all the
plant     food   that they can get from
the soil,   and as   much more as can
be economically applied.    If tbe soil
is cropped with grass,      cereals and
roots, for instance,   for eight or ten
years much   plant food     will be ro-
moved,    and   although     these crops
may   he   manured,    there     is but a
small percentage of people wbo will
manure sufficiently    to make   up for
the plant food     removed.    Furthermore,   tbe    moisture In     the soil is
lessened if   other     crops are grown,
owing to the evaporation     from tbe
loaves of tbe growing crops,   n-nd as
droughts now occur so frequently in
some parts of the country, as much
moisture ns possible    should be conserved for the use of the young trees
If other crops   must be   grown, they
should be such as may be cultivated
i»r hoed.     A crop of potatoes is one
of the least   objectionable     crops to
grow.       Corn is     often     planted in
young orchards,  hut an  instance has
come under our notice     where    corn
evidently ha-d caused injury by shad
ing tlie    trunk too     much,   and the
wood  not   being  thoroughly    ripened
was   badly sun     scalded,   or Injured
by winter.     If other   crops, such as
bay or     grain,     are   grown,    there
should   he four   or tlve   feet   left ou
-jac-h side     of the tree     without any
and the strips thus left, may be cultivated.        If no   other     crops   are
grown in tho orchard,    the trees, if
cultivated    properly,    will need very
little manure    until they    como into
bearing,   as     apple trees   will grow
quite tbriftly when young in comparatively poor soil,   as the exhaustion
of the soil   from tbe     production of
wood is small    compared    wltb thnt
when large crops of fruit are removed.
Barn-yard manure is ono of tho
best complete fertilizers where it can
be procured cheaply aud conveniently
The weight of tho fertilizing constituents which are removed from
the soil in the production of a crop
of apples, when they are In full hcur-
Ing has been estimated by careful
analysis, and if about fifteen tons of
fresh barnyard manure were applied every throe years, considerably
more plant food would be restored

Editorially, the Cranbrook Herald
dishes up the following choice bit of
political rot, for its readers:
"On the representations made by Dr.
"King, member of the provincial
"House for the Cranbrook riding,
the government has consented to ex-
"pend 52.000 on the extension of the
"Wagon roud up the St, Mary'a val-
"ley. 15 miles from Menchoiri's ranch.
"At first the government would only
"grant $1,000, but Dr. King explained that by the time an outfit bad
"gone in and were ready to work
"there would be little left of so
"small an appropriation to do any
"real good. The government then
"consented to give this district the
"extra $1,000, making J2.000 for tho
"St. Mary's river road. In getting
"this appropriation tho doctor has
"done an excellent piece of work, cs-
"pcciully when it is taken into consideration that his scut in the
"house is on the opposition benches.
For pure, unadulterated gall, and
premeditated misrepresentation, tbe
Old man of tbo Herald, Is entitled
to the whole of the Grit Bakery.
While discussing the estimates in
tbe Provincial Legislature, the member from Rossland drew attention to
the appropriations In a disparaging
manner. When the item of J1.00II
for the St. Mary's roud was being
discussed, the member from Cranbrook was conspicuous by bis silence
Since reading the Herald item, we

Sir Wilfrid Laurier, though having
troubles of his own at Ottawa, has
found tune to write, so we have
been informed, to party friends in
the Kootenay, requesting them to
nominate Dr. J. H. King as the parly candidate for the Commons in the
coming  election.
It is now up to Leader Maedonald
of Rossland to write to Mr. R. E.
Beattie and ask him to accept the
nomination for the local House when
the Doctor resigns.

A few weeks ago Mr. Brodour shocked the country by n vituperative attack
on the members of a ltoyal Commission,
appointed by the Government ul which
he is ii member, before the commission's
rejiort was before parliament.
When tho report was out with its
lauinatary duelings against Mr. Brodeur and his department thn Liberals
wen- thrown into a stute bordering on
hysteria. The once sane Mr. Aylesworth talked of "Liberal sheep and
Tory goat»." Mr. Brodeur shrieked
that the report was maliciously false.
The Liberal press found its only crumb
of comfort ia extolling the "courage"
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. lt was very
brave of him of risk the shedding of
light on his administration.
Theu Sir Wilfrid with characteristic
virtuous solemnity promised a searching
investigation into tha whole civil service. The promise was shamelessly
broken a few days later whon it was
announced lhat Mr. Justice Cnsurls had
beeu appointed by Mr. Brodeur to Investigate thu report of the former commission. As a pretence of fulfillment
of Sir Wilfrid's promise to parliament
and country, this was mere burlesque,
But since then, without waiting for
•ven the beginning of Justice Cassel's
inquiry, Mr, Hruduiir has begun dismissing his own subordinates. If this is
not an admission of either dishonesty
or incompetency, it is strangely like it.
But Mr. Brodeur cannot, by dismissing any number of his subordinates,
clear himself of the responsibility for
maladministration any more than Sir
Wilfrid can clear himself by saeritieing
minister after minister.
It is the tlrst minister who is primarily responsible for the administration as
a whole and for every department of it.
Cunadu cares uothing about the guilt
ur iunncencB of Mr. Brodeur himself: it
is Sir Wilfrid Laurier who must answer for It all.   Nelson Canadian.

INTO THK FIGHT
Asiatic   Mxclusion   League   Has  The
Confidence of Working Men.
With oue bouud the Asiatic Exclusion
League sprang intoa position of prestige
and influence, on Monday night, whieh
it hud not enjoyed since its organization.
The Asiatic immigration question has
never before in the history of the
League been so ably presented us it was
by Sir Charles H ibbert Tupper to that
meeting. 'I'he hall wus packed to the
doors and ninny were turned uway.
The audience, while largely composed
of workiugmen, had also a good representation of business uud professional
men, uud throughout a lengthy and able
adili'ess by Sir Hibbert. listened with
an Intelligent comprehension that
missed no point and frequently
applauded to the echo. If the result of
the next Federal elections in this city
could be gauged bv the temper and
feeling of that meeting it is ubundantly
apparent that the Government will be
minus one supporter from Vancouver,
Another political straw of some
significance, was heard in the remark
of a business man which was assented
to by others, that in making that address Sir Hibbert Tupper had practically written out the Conservative nomination and put it in his pocket.
The League is now iu the hands ol
sane and sensible men, who can and
will command the confidence of the
community, and Monday night's meeting
demonstrated their ability to conduct
the agitation on a high and effective
plane.
