It is pretty generally understood
that Un* present session ol the legislature will Ih: prorogued in the
course ol lho next two or three
weeks, und uu appeal made to the
country on another railway policy,
evolved (or the occasion by Hon. It.
MeBridc and his colleagues.
In view of the very unsatisfactory
conditions surrounding the McBrldo
government's guarantee of the bonds
of thc C.N.It. in Iflin, and the
equally unsatisfactory nature of the
security deposited by that railway
company for the due fultlllmtnt of
their contract, it is certainly very
desirable tliat every elector should
familiarize himself with all tho facts
obtainable concerning this deal.
It is imperative tbat public interest be immediately centred upon this
railway proposition, as it is well
understood that McBride has already
signed contracts fcr additional railway construction which will be submitted to the legislature, afler the estimates have been submitted), and
rushed through wilh the least possible discussion.
For the guidance of Herald readers,
nnd in order tbat they may bt* able
lo form a dispassionate opinion ol
ibe situation, we reproduce lielow a
series of questions asked in the legislature by Mr. Brewster, together
with Premier McBrldc's replies thereto; also a certified copy cf the
prospectus*, Issued by the C.N.It., aud
a copy of tin* General Guarantee,
signed hy W. .1. Bowser, acting minister of finance:
Mr. Brewster asked the Hon. the
premier the following questions:
1. What bonds have been issued by
the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway company ami guaranteed by tbe
governmenl under clause ti nf the
schedule to chapter 3, statutes of
1010, with date of issue, terms and
2. What security bas been given by
the Canadian Northern Pacific Hail-
way companj under clause (n>, paragraph ", of schedule to chapter 3,
3. Has ihe Canadian Northern
Pacific Railway company made anv
application to the govem'MCit i'r
any grant of    land    unb-r m- |u.-vl-
itons of clause id), paragraph 13,
.( the schedule to chap, l, 1910? II
O, what applications have been matte,
ami what action   has the government
taken thereon?
The Hon. Mr.    McBride replied     as
•I. The issue of bonds is £1.438,-
S66; llie date of issue was 18th November, 1911; the terms ami conditions were as set forth m a certain
prospectus, dated llth November,

therein, The prospectus is filed with

(Sgd). ff. .1. Bowser,
Minislei of Finance
In, reference to Hie foregoing il will
be Of interest   to Hetaltl nailers       to
consider the remarks ol John Oliver,
in Hie course ol a recent address Ite
fuic> the Victoria Liberal association
Mr. Oliver hint discussed the McBride government's policy in regard
lo various interests and llun turned
so thu railway policy as indicated in
the deal with the CN.P.
Mr. Oliver admitted that the company bad undoubted!} spent a considerable sum of money hi the province, helping a real estate boom. For
years Ihey hat] the promise of railway legislation, and then came the
announcement of 1909, They were
promised tlmt the guarantee of lhe
bonds would be all, that they would
control (i.ui'ii rates, and the road
was to Ih* standard in quality. They
were told repeatedly thai the govcrnmeni was only guaranteeing iiu* interest on thirty year bonds! As a
matter of fact the bonds have been
guaranteed for nearly forty years.
Thc premier deliberately deceived the
people in bis address at the Victoria
I heat re on thc eve of the 1909 election as to tbe period of guarantee.
They hud the promise that there
would not In* more than a fcur-tcnths
of ono per cent grade. The land regls-
ti\ olliee here had plans which showed one ami one-half per cent on the
poii ion of this island, ami on 12
degree curves the engine would be in
ihe happy position of pushing ami
pulling at the same time. 'Laughter
ami applause). As sn Inducement
the C.P.R. was to lie lorced to reduce its freight rales.
The Died charges per mile, instead
Ol being lower than existing Urns,
would Ih* much higher. The position
was that while the credit of the province was pledged to a guarantee »f
160,000 per mile in authorised bond
issues ihere was also permission under the articles o( Incorporation lor
the company to raise $26,000,000 on
tlie six hundred miles ol line in thr
province, making an actual total per
mile nf 1101,000. The C.P.R. was
carry ing 152,(Hin ,\ mile, including
terminals, as its total Indebbednesi
while tins charge on the CN.P. s\>
tem WIS exclusive nl terminals. The
bond holders were entitled to a rea*
sonahle interest on their shares, the
stockholders must receive a dividend.
or the line would be dcolated bankrupt, in case tf reference to tbe supreme court, as provided in tin* act
of incorporation.
There was a clause in the act ol m-
eorporattoa which allowed the rail
way company to pay their engineers,
and contractors, for supplies, Iron
gravel pits to rolling slock, in shares
oi bonds ol the company. No fixed
estimate could be placed ot, tlte value
to be rendered, Supposing the line
cost 150,000 a mite to construct,
there was nothing iu the agreemenl
to prevent thi* C.N.It. company to
pay their contractor*. $100,000, and
though this would he watered stock,
the  agreement    makes the province
liable tor interest ami dividends on
thu whole amount lor the diflerenn

The government has induced the
Canadian Pacific lo take ovei Irom
the tin-ill Northern thc Kaslo and
Slocan railway which is to N- standardized and operated as a part of thc
C.P.R, system. The standardization
of this rail waj will c. st $400,000
toward which amount ihe provlnc
will   give $100,000 and thereby    will
sate tlie cost of ;l wagOO toad

The reason that " Vincland "
Brand Canned Goods are vastly
superior to the other brands is that
they are packed directly on thc

psychological moment when they
acquire their perfect color and
flavor. Is it not logical, then, to
assume that this is a tremendous
advantage over the brands that
are picked on the various frull
tartns and shipped to a general
canr.ing factotv lo await their turn
in packing ? This is the way that
practically all lhe other brands are
handled, and in recommending

A table of ten commandments is

'•I. Never lose Bight of the interests of your compatriots or of the

"2, Do not forget that when you
buy a foreign product, no matter It
it is only a eent's worth, you diminish tne fatherland's wealth hy just
so much.
"... Your money should profit only
Gorman merchants ami workmen.
"i. Do nnt profane German soil,!
a German house or a German workshop by using foreign machines and
tools. ' I
"5. Never allow t<> be serv«| at
ynur table (orcirji fruits and meat,
thus wronging German growers, and,'
moreover, compromising your health,
because lon-itui meats are not inspected by Gorman sanitary police.
' li. Write on Gorman paper with
a German pen and dry the ink Willi
German blotters.
"7.   You should     be clothed     onlv
with Gorman goods and should woat
only Gorman lints.

"III. Hn nol let foreign boasters

The Young Men's Christian acsool*
tion movement in Canada has Irom
tho beginning been united to some
movement in the United States. The
typo of association work conduotod in
the Dominion, while at the first differed -slightly from that iu the Untied States, has gradually conformed
to that type ns distinguished from
iln* European.
The international conventions, so
called, have been made up of all
the associations in North America.
The last convention was held in Toronto in October, 1(110. There has
been a growing feeling among intelligent association men in the Dominion that there needed to he some
plan devised by which the Canadian
work could bc supervised nationally
rather than internationally; that the
center for Canadian work should be
in Canada ral her than In New York
City, where tbe headquarters ofi the
International committee arc located.
In lho 1'nitch stales the International committee was tlm Oral agency
of supervision to bc created by thc
associations. The purpose ol it was
lo unify lhe existing work, and lo
extend the work into unorganized
fields. In order that the different
States might push their own work
within the boundary of the Union
more effectually, state commit-tecs
wen* created by state conventions,
which were called in the beginning
by the International commit ice.
These slate committees were cntirelj
tndependenl of the International, and
they exercised, or had a right lo c\-
crclse, exactlj the same as the international.
