witli the chaotic polltl

towards reviving tho confidence of
business men in British Columbia,
producing heavy investmt nts, and
making for thc exploitation of natural resottrscs and the enlistment of industrial population for tbe Wor
development and of settlement.
The policy upon which appeal Is to
be made is also exceedingly popular,
lino securing of railway construction
upon a large scale and upon highly
advantageous terms being the great,
desire ot the province, and Mackenzie

joying an enviable reputation for
business like efficiency in railroad
building and operation and for col
oiir/ntioii capacity.
Another plunk of government nl policy will he a new plan for the more
equitable adjustment of taxation,
while approval will hu asked of the
more comprehensive highway improvement program already Initiated. Permanency of tenure in respect of crown

a new system for dealing witb timber
lauds aud conserving the forestry re
source will be Inaugurated, bused on
the report of the forestry commission
which has Just cloned its invcstlgn
tlons. Tbe terms of the railway
agreement proscribe any employment
of Asiatics and guarantee standard

Option will be taken  nciilent   with

Failing to see eye to eye witb their
lender on the nml ter of railway pot-
Icy, lion. It. G. Tatlow has resigned
Ibe portfolio of finance and Hon.

these resignations bolng accepted.
With all other features of policy both
retiring ministers declare themselves
to be fully In sympathy and accord,
As to tin* railway proposals, Captain
Tatlow holds that the assistance proposed Is In bis opinion excessive,
while Mr. Pulton entertains ttie view
that railways will build into Hritish
Columhln, seeking trade, without the
public cooperation, Judging by the
record of tho Canadian Northern in
other provinces the position of retiring ministers Is untenable, ns pro
vtnciul assistance could scarcely take
a lower form than guarantee of Inter
est under security of first mortgage,
which guarantee there is every reason
to   believe   will      never be called   Into
operation. It virtually meets the
point of Mr, Pulton's desire too, thnl
the railway Hhoiibl come in without
aid of a public character, aince a
guarantee that Is never invoked in a
theoretical rather than actual obligation. Both Captain Tallow ami Mr,
Pulton have for some time past con
tempbited retirement from public lite,
und the minor disagreement with Ibe' "'
leader on tbe railway issue has but
precipitated action. In withdrawing
from the cabinet both have taken
pat tin to make 11 plain that they do
so with warm regard for Hon. Mr.
McBride, who will most probably
have tbnlr active support as well ns
well Wishes in the cumpaigu now     at

of tbe CN.lt. prescribes a maximum
gradient of one half per cent, while
according to Mr. Mnnn as low as
Usitlis of 1 per cent may be secured.
This will be by far tbe lowest gradient on any transcontinental system
,1 in America, and the Canadian North
era must therefore possess an insuperable advantage in economical operation and thus in competition with
nil rival roads for the hauling of
