Ottawa,  Feb. 2.   Tbe    conservative
and evidently Sir WUlrld »u.s nettled,
iteclnrt'd that ne paid the opposition
too fjreat n compliment in thinking
tliey would be consistent. Sir Wilfrid Indulged in some more pleasantries retfardinn the resolution which
passed last March. He supposed that
it would he binding on both sides of
the bouse and that, the small amount
ot consistency possessed by the opposition would display itself. He
found, however, that the opposition
was all out of tune.
"The gentle lamb from ,1 aequo-;
Oartier (Mr. Monk) and the bold lion
from Kant Grey (Dr, Sproulei" added the premier amid laughter,
"roared in unison. I do not pretend
to be an imperialist," declared sir
Wilfrid, "and I do not pretend to be
nn antMmporittliBt. I am n ('aim
dinn, first last and all the time."
In an e!ot|i.*nt period Sir Wilfrid
then elaborated, The ilritish empire
was built on the solid rock of anion
imi) und iudivlduul liberty. The
policy on the naval question, he declared, was in in true keeping with
this spirit of British liberty.
After taking up an hour with a
discussion of the general principals
of the bill Sir Wilfrid came down to
a relation of. what happened ut thf
imperlnl defence conference. Then he
harked back to Australia's former
position and declared  that  the colo

Organize Empire
Remarkable Suggestion by Hon. R. L.
Borden.   Imperial Defense Committee
Ottawa, Feb, 3.--A passage of great
importance in Mr. Bordtm'K apee^h on
the naval defence issue was his dealing with the future composition of
the Binpire. It is the most thoughtful, most progressive and . boldest
suggestion put forward by nny Canadian statesman in sn responsible u
position. UU ii-.ua... words are ns
"1 know that it has been urged,and
with aomo force, that' we in Canada
cannot properly take a permanent
part in the naval defence of tho
whole empire unless we are to have
kluiu> voice aa to the wars- in which
Great Britain may engage.
Let nue say ln the first place, that
1 do not believe Great Britain will
In the future engage In any great war
-•except indevd It may he a war
forced upon her without a moments
notice—before consulting the great
dominions of the empire.        .. u *■•
1 havo some warrant for that statement when J recollect thnt before
Great Britain engaged in tho South
African war, which wus lu the end
forced upou her, she cumc to the
great dominions of tbe empire, she
came to Canada aud she sought advice and counsel. And, my right hon.
friend the Prime Minister, standing
in his place in this House moved a
resolution in 1899 expressing the sympathy of this House with the efforts
which Great Britain was then making
to bring about better conditions for
her subjects in thc Transvaal Republic. I remember on that occasion
that ono of tho followers of the right
lion, gentleman- a mnn not now in
this house, hut pno of the most faithful and ablest ol the right Mon.
gentleman's supporters said to mo
when it was mooted that such a resolution would be proposed: 1 shall
support and vote for that resolution
but only on the condition that il war
does come iu South Africa, Uauadn
shall back the mother country up
witb all her resources and to the utmost of her power.
And, Sir, l venture to believe that
In future tho self governing nations
of tho empire will have something to
say about the wars of thc empire.
It is not wise to prophesy what the
future may bring forth, but 1 would
venture to hope that a defence cotn-
mittce ur an Imperial conference having special jurisdiction over defence
matters, composed of men from both
parties in Great Britain itself ns well
-on iu the self governing nations of
the empire, would have some control
over the organization of imperial defence, and us au outcome of such a
committee or conference I would expect thnt In future Great Britain
would engage in no great war without
knowing beforehand thnt she would
hnve tho support and sympathey of
every one of the great self-govern lug
imtions of tlie empire.
This would give to those dominions a voice iu the control of war,
because I thoroughly agree thnt If-
wo are to take part in the permanent
defence of this great empire we must
hnve some control and some voice in
such matters."
of bounties and treated it with the
utmost disrespect. Mr. Welding bad
drawn an analogy between bounties
on  iron  and  steel  and  railway  suhsi-
jdies.    Mr. Clark argued that this was
j false in three respects:
l    Hi  Iron and steel can  be procured
[from    abroad.      Railways     must  be
■ made in the country.
\2} Iu subsidizing railways we establish a general policy applicable to
the whole nation. Bounties on iron
and steel enn benefit only a very few
! districts of the country
t (3) Bounty ami tariff together have
the effect of making the steel rails of
Which railways are built moie expensive, thus making it more dilll-
CUlt to supply railways to the people.

Outside   Service
How the Laurier Government Keeps
it Under the Party tleeler.-	
Ottawa, Feb. 3.-The conditions of
the outsido service remains n political scandal to he charged against the
Laurier Government.. Upon this subject Mr. C. A. Magrnth, M. r.-, spoke
with great point and vigor recently
in tho House. "A few years ago,"
he said, "previous to the Inst general election, we hnd the inside service placed under a commission. Tho
outside service is still in , Lne same
old condition. The members of the
inside service were advised that they
were to receive an increase in salary
previous to election. The outside
service have not bam so treated . Unfortunately for them they are not
hived together iu any (locality, but I
believe, Sir, it is our duty to plnce
the outside service under a commission nnd do it at once. If they have
any rights, if they nre entitled to increases, by nil moans let them, have
increases, hut put them iu a position
in which they can be properly looked
after. I occasionally visit the pub*-
licaccotmts committee of this House
of Parliament and I see some things
that are not poiilculaily agreeable
to me as n citiaen of this country.   I
see oflieinls of the outside service
brought before that committee. 1
hiive in my mind at the present time
au instance in which a gentleman who
almost forgot his name when under
examination hy Hon. gentlemen op
poslte on this side of the House but,
when he happened to be taken in
I hand by Hon. gentlemen opposite it
i took almost twenty gentlemen to cur-
; ry away what he hud to give. Was
| thnt gentleman so seriously to blame?
It is true that he gave his sacred
oath thnt. he would tell the truth Hint
nothing but the truth, but I fear
very much. Sir, that he juggled with
ithe truth. His bread und butter wns
at stake with the political head of
I bis department gazing into his coun-
iteiiance conveying the intelligence
j that il' he should allow himself to
S give away any idea that should in -
[jure the government his official 'position would not he worth the paper
| on which it was written. Was that
I right? I do not care what government is in power, the system is
I wrong. Probably thut mnn has a
I family whose bread and butter is ut
j stake."

Af riad of Ottawa
Opposition Voved
Against the
Motion.     i
Victoria, Poll, ii.—An amusing incident occurred today in tim course of
tlie discussion ol tlie dill (or medical
Inspection ol schools. Mr. Haw-
tliornlhwnitc approved nl the bill nnd
said It wan n (,'ood progressive measure, nui ho had nn confluence that it
would not remain a dead letter. Last
year, for Instance,, they had passed n
Pnrtoricn- act, but what hnd the government doue to enforce It? Probably they would appoint to the position of factory Inspector some, narty
worker who wanted reward!' And who
could draw n salary and do nothing.
Hon. W. J. Bowser here Interposed
to remark thnt the government has
appointed an inspector tbe poison
recommended by the Trades and I.n
nor council ol Vancouver.
Mr. Hnwthornthwnite calmly re
marked that he was triad the government hail gone to thc Trades and
Labor council lor advice, heennse it
was a source of Information thnt
might bo solely relied upon. It wns u
ehnrp curve, but he got around It.
All four of the opposition voted
against the resolution, drawing attention to the obstacles In the way
of the settlement of agricultural
lands In the railway bolt, which Is
OTder tbe Ottawa government.Messrs
BrewBter and Jardlno thought that
nothing uliould be said which that
government might not like. Mr.
Hawthotnthwaite, following his new
policy of conciliating the Liberals,
also voted against tbe motion on the
ground thnt It was Intended to make
capital against the Liberal government at Ottawa, and that the legls
lettirc ought, not to do so.
Mr. McBride sought to soothe tho
(ears of thc Liberals by remarking
that ho did not think Hon. Messrs.
tiaurler and Tcmpleman would be
aVMrry at thorn If thoy Joined with the
other members in drawing Ottawa*
attention to something It might do
lo heln settlors in British Columbia,
On tbe bill amending tlie Srtion
act Mr. Hnwthornthwaltc followed
Mr. Brewotor's leud and asked Im »
normal school for Vancouver Island,
Which- should be In Victoria. Mr.
Jardlne, taking up the same talc,
uid it wan a great   hardship    tbut
young people in Victoria could not
attend u normal school without having to go away irom home. This
wns the rouse ■ ol the shortage of
teachers In the province.
The bill was passed as it stood.
Bill Introduced in Parliament to
Amend Sohool Act.
Vlctorln, Jan. 31. -Reduction in
tnxnton and changes in the British
Columbia educational system were
the uiitiii topics discussed iiy members of the provincial legislature ul
this afternoon's session. Bills providing for amendments in t.iie assessment net and to the school net were
Introduced by the attorney general,
who explained their provisions most
exhaustively, The first proposes materially to reduce I lie income tux anil
the assessment, on improvements, the
exemption under the latter being
nouMy double the properties that
have been Included under the free list
heretofore. This measure wns Introduced under special warrant and its
consideration hy the house wns deferred.
In discussing the school act it was
explained hy Mr. Bowser that the in-
i ent ion is to enforce a strict medical
Inspection of different Institutions
throughout the province It is also
intended to place innniiiil training Instructors at those schools whoso slxe
warrants the expenditure so that as
many children ns possible might obtain In their youth practical Instruction. Most important nf all was the
declaration that toachors salaries
will he Increased, It. being admitted
lhat with heavy cost of living It wus
imperative that remiiiieratlim of
those engaged In odtlcatlonnl pursuits
should ho augmented. A number ol
private bills were introduced, a special committee reporting that two
companies are seeking for a charter
to build a railway through Queen
Charlotte Inlands.
