strike would never have occurred. Tho
minister's conduct in this matter has
constituted an injustice to the men
and a pervcrsflfo ot the Industrial
Disputes Act."
Such was tbe opinion expressed by
Frank Car veil, of Carlton, In the
house last week concerning lite repeated refusal of Hon. T. W. Crothers. minister of labor, to grant a
board of conciliation in the dispute
between the Canadian Hr other hood
and the C. P. R. and his subsequent
inactivity in bringing about the enforcement of the findings of the
board after it had finally been appointed.
For the greater part of the afternoon the minister sat with hat pulled down on his brow, while a do/en
members of the opposition delivered
an attack against the policy which,
in this case, he had pursued, iron.
Itodolph Lemieux precipitated the
delft.tr by a motion ' for the correspondence, after which thc minister
felt constrained to give some justification of bis action to parliament.

his attempt at justification did not
satisfy the opposition.

said the minister^ bail not irevn technical^ incorrect. The organisation:
composed a largd number of classes.
Their grievances numbered 21). it
would have taken long to investigate
the matter—therefore, the hoard had
M. I). Carvell declared that under
the provisions of the act the minister had no discretion in the matter
of granting a board. In thc matter
of enforcing the award when made
the minister had pursued the same
dilatory methods which be had em
ployed for the past year with the
men in the face of a threat that
they would strike.
"The minister," declared Sir Wilfrid Laurier, "may have made a correct idea of the meaning of the law
but bis view did not constitute substantial justice. He says that hr
refused to grant thc board because
Ihe men had 2,1 grievances. WliU it
they had u hundred, The more
grievances they had the greater the
need for investigation."
The discussion interested Hon,
fleorge 1*. Graham, because the civ
had been raised against him in
the Renfrew by-election thut he had
done nothing to settle the Oraml
Trunk strike, and yet bad nothing to
do with tbe labor department. This
very organization was recognized hy
thc government on Its own line, the
Intercolonial. When it ennie to recognition on a company line, the
government did not think they
should have it. The 20 grievances of
the men were such as were contained
in every schedule, which was never
submitted to the railway company
W. A. Buchanan, of I.elhbridge, declared that there was an opinion in
the west tbat the C.l'.H. had the
ear ol tbe government and that its
employees need not look toward Ottawa for assistance. Was it any
wonder that such an impression went
"If this court is only to Ire opened
when the arbitrary opinion of the
minister of labor shall decide," said
W. E. KiiowIcr, of Moose Jaw, "then
the usefulness of this act will he

created that the department is not

tou. "If the act Is not good, docs
he Intend to repeal It? If It is lacking in certain features, docs he Intend to amend it? Or does he prefer
to nullify its provisions by refusing
to put them into force'*"
If the act was not a workable act,
Ottawa, Jan. 22.—The short Wed-
hesday sitting of thc commons was
marked by a discussion of several
matters of general interest.
A long debate hinged on a motion
by Hon. Rodolpho Lemieux for thc
production of papers relating to the
application ol the Brotherhood of
Railway Employees of the C.P.R.
for a hoard .of conciliation. The minister of labor was criticised for not
having appointed a general board by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, F. B. Carvell,
Hon. Geo. P. Graham, W. A. Buchanan and others.
The government's defence was
made hy Hon. T. ,W. Crothers and
Premier Borden, who, in the course
of a short speech, said that fhc minister had acted in what he conceived
to be the best interests of the men.
He asserted that the government had
nothing to conceal in regard to this
matter, and that thc papers would
be produced.
Hon. Redolpbe Lemieux, in moving
for all the correspondence between
the department of labor and the C.
P. R. bearing on the application ol
the Brotherhood of Railway Employers for a board of conciliation,
expressed .,'.vrpri:re teat the minister
had not named a hoard under the
Disputes and Investigation Act.
While not desiring to discuss the
question until the papers had been
brought down, be would ask the minister to make an explanation of thc
matter to the house.
F. B. Carvell, speaking in support
of the motion, expressed surprise
that the speaker should suggest to
secure competent men at wages ranging from $30 to $40 per month. He
claimed that the minister had disregarded the act; that thc application
having heen made in proper form, he
had no Choice but to grant the
"As I construe the law," said Mr.
Carvell, "the minister has no discretion in the matter. He Is compelled if he respects the law, to
carry . it out. Tlie act distinctly
states that he 'shall' name n
board." This be had refused to do
in the face ol the statements of the
men that tbey would go on strike if
a hoard were not granted. Finally,
In ord*r to escape a row in parliament, he had capitulated and named
a partial board, applying only to the
Ottawa division of the system. This
board had sustained the contentions
or the men both as to claims for increased wanes and lor recognition of
their union. Since the report of
the board was made public six weeks
have elapsed and yet the men have
not been taken bock. It was difficult, Mr. Carvell said, to reconcile

Tim the whole country, more or

Hon. Maltin Burrcll, niliilstei of agriculture, appears (o be the one minister really awake to the situation.
He has brought in n measure to provide the sum of Sin.fHW.OOO, tube

exclusively for the encouragement
and development ol the agricultural
Industry. In this province, where
the need of practical assistance to
the bona fide settler, in the matter
of laud clearing ami of stocking his
land is so serious a situation, some
little attention is at last being given
the ease. The constant resolutions
adopted in agricultural associations,
hoards of trade, etc., are telling upon the supine McBride government,
and ii    is quite possible that      even

J. R. Boyle, minister of education,
who said today:   .
''The department found it necessary Inst year to issue permits to
Wo teachers to enable them to tab?
up schools. .Some of them had no
qualifications. We have also allowed teachers from other provinces in
Canada and from Great Britain to
take schools, though their standards
were not as high as our requirements; but it was thought to be
better to keep the schools open than
to have tire pupils deprived of all
educational facilities, t'ndcr the
present system Americans, no matter how well qualified, cannot teacli

attitude of a year ago, when he was
anxious lo compel the Orond
Trunk to take back its strikers. It
would be hard for the minister to
convince tbe people that he Is not
more concerned over the Interests ol
the C.P.R. than Is good for the laboring people of Canada.
Hon, T. W. Crothers, in reply, said
that this notice of motion had been
on the order paper for several weeks
and he had come to the house prepared to diflCUBS it. Todayi however, he did not have tho papers.
He considered thnt the member for
Rotivillc should have given him notice
of his intention to bring it up.
Speaking from memory he said he
had heard nothing about this application before August last, The
Brotherhood ot Railway Employees
was broad enough to include practically every employee of the Cana-
dlnn railways. It was made up of
3B classes and the application Included 2fl grievances tn each case.
Mr. Crother dissented from the view
that he was obliged to establish a
board as the act states that the applicants muflt satisfy the minister

All persons who are accustomed,
or intend, to import trees, shrubs,
plants and 'other kinds of vegetation
into Canada, or to ship such trees

thoroughly familiar with thc regulations ol the Dominion and Provincial
governments in this matter. If this
is not done inconvenience and possible loss may result owing to the
neglect to comply with the renuire-
ments of Dominion or Provincial
governments, which requirements are
necessitated by the danger,.always
present, of the importation of dangerous pests into Canada or their
spread from one province to another.
The regulations governing the importation of vegetation ot various
kinds into Canada and thc Dominion
and Provincial laws under which they
have been passed have been collected

nml kindred subjects took place lathe
house ol commons tho other day. a
brief report of which will be timely,
at least it shows that some of tbe
members are awake and alive to the
requirements of the most important
element iu their country's population-,
the farmers.
V summary of the report referred
to above, reads as follows:
Ottawa, -Ian. 27.—The preparation
of a programme for the discussion of
important phases in the relations between the producer and the consumer
was advocated by Major Currie, of
Simcoe, in the agriculture and colonisation committee last week, and
steps will be taken at once for the
formation of a sub-committee to
carry out the plan. The committer
generally agreed 'hat its scope
should be enlarged to include work of
a more practical nature than former-
h. Its opening session was well
attended hy the farmer members of
'the house, nearly every individual
1 present giving his views of the problems of greatest importance in various parts of the Dominion.
Kour important subjects, in thc
opinion of Major Currie. merited consideration. He would first suggest
tbat the question of cooperative
methods should he considered. In
former days neighbor helped neighbor, but the system was now going
out of fashion. A second subject for
discussion should he tire lueb cost o)

as to the reasons for the present

and thc consumer. Tire farmer did

through failure on tire part ol

was of thc further opinion thai the

.1. If. Douglas, of Strathcona, said
tbat the great problem ln Alberta
was the scarcity of labor. Many-
acres had been unharvested this year
on account of the impossibility of
getting men. He advocated the appropriation of a large sum of money
for a careful system of assisted immigration.
Ihincan Ross was also interested in
the apple industry of tbe east. Ho
had seen good apples rotting on the
ground in Middlesex- county while
there was a fruit famine in the west.
It was a lamentable fact that most
of the apples eaten in Alberta came
from Washington.
Major Currie advocated the formation of exchanges among the fruit
growers of Ontario and the building
of warehouses both jn the province
and at Winnipeg.
A motion was introduced to tbe
effect that tire house be asked to
refer that part of the report of t1»
minister d agriculture dealing with
the fruit industry to be taken up at
the next meeting, and that a subcommittee lie appointed to plan an
agenda. Certain dates will be set.

to power be would grant assistance
to the provinces in agriculture.
\ preliminary step had been taken
last year, but before outlining his
complete statement, Ut. C. C   .lame!*

the various provincial gomnmcrits

went on to say that tire problem
which confronted Canada today Is
the ever increasing cost ol living and
the • increase of urban as against
rural population. In Canada we
take a natural pride in our great and
growing cities, hut we should be
poor citizens if wc did not try to
mitigate and avert the attendant,
evils which follow undesirable expansion in that direction.
The minister then quoted figures to
show that while in lire past ten
years the urban population Increased
by 48.8 per cent the rural population
increased hy only l.fi per cent. In
Western Canada, the urban population increased by 222 per cent and

An English Chemist Has
Discovered How to
Grow Hair.
In Kngland thc ladies have entirely
abandoned wearing rats, which is due
entirely to this new disc&very.
It has been ' proven that Ifcuna
||.*avcs contain the ingredients that
will positively grow hair. That they
contain this long lookod for article is
proven every day.
The Americans are now placing ou
thc market a preparation containing
the extract; from Henna leaves, which
is having ., phenomenal sale.
This preparation is called SALVIA
and is being sold.with a guarantee to
euro dandruff and to grow hair in
abundance. Being daintily perfumed,
SALVIA makes a most pleasant hair
dressing. The Cranbrook Drug to
Bootj Co., your druggist, is the first
to import this preparation into Cranbrook and a large, generous bottle
can be purchased for 50c.

(By   II.    Mortimer-Lamb, Secretary,
the Canadian   Mining Institute,
Within the   last twenty or twenty-
live years, the  science of geology has
developed in   a direction that      has
brought it into direct and serviceable
association     with     those   classes of
commercial   enterprise that are    dependent on engineering.    While
is especially, true     in respect of mining, jl    applies almost   equally      to
railroading,     municipal   engineering,
and other    activities of a like   nn-
ttlro.    The  dependence of mining on
variably included on the permanent
staff of every mining corporation of
importance; and the demand in recent years for the services of capable men to occupy such positions
bus been (|Utt0 out of the proportion
to the supply. It is recognized universally, in short, that the debt of
the mining industry to geology is
enormous, and the obligation continues to increase steadily. This
largely explains the circumstance
that the invitation to the International Geological Congress to hold
the next meeting in Canada was
made, not only at tlw instance of
the t Canadian and Ontario governments, and of the Hoyal Society of
Canada, but at that of the Canadian
Mining Institute, an association representative, in a truly national
sense, of jthe mining Industry of this
country. It is believed that this
meeting will immensely benefit mining in ihe Dominion. From the educational and the scientific standpoints, much is to be expected from
the interchange of views on Canadian
conditions and problems, hy men
(if international reputations. On purely commercial grounds, the interest
and attention that will be directed
to the mineral resources and to   the

plication and significance. The coil-
gress endeavors to .provide, (or example, for the adoption of uniform
systems of mapping, nomenclature
and,classification of rocks, fossils and'
minerals; and in other directions
broadens the boundaries and extends
the usefulness of geological science.
One achievement in particular ihat
may be mentioned, is the compilation of a geological map of Europe,
shortly to be issued; and it is now
proposed to undertake thc preparation of a similar geological map of
the world.

men of recognized eminence, including distinguished government officials,
geologists and mining engineers in
consulting practice, geographers,
great educationalists and writers of
text-books.      Thus surely never     a
lems, a number of the cabinet ministers proved their interest and sense
ol the importance of the occasion by
their presence. The arrangements
for the conduct of Ihe meeting, for
the entertainment ot the visiting

to all    classes    and    to the mining, that no pains arc being spared by an

record must be at least maintained.

undertaking tho compilation of a

this repot I .should serve to direct
wider attention to the magnitude!
and value of Canadian resources. The
subject of croiit resources ami supplies will, moreover, form one of the
j principal toplcn for discussion at the

| Commenting on the pending tariff
revision measure in congress, the
New York Run says:
j "Whatever else is on the Democratic Tree list, it should include
meats and tood animals. The revenue
lo he lost thereby is negligible, tbe
advantages are great. The population of the I'nited States has been
and will keep on increasing, the entire meat supply has been diminishing
and will keep on diminishing. Mexico,
Argentina, Australia, New Zealand
and other sources of supply must be
tapped. The United States must
have foreign cattle and meats because it has not and cannot have
enough of its own and because it is
destined to be more and more industrialized and populous. Free meat
is     for     the     greatest  good Ol    the
greatest number,    it is a necessity.'1
A year and a ball ago Canadian
producers Ol cattle were offered free
entry for their products into this rich
UtilUjd States market and a preference in that market over and above
all other countries iu tbe world. The
I'nited States offered to remove all
duties on Canadian live stock, while
maintaining such duties against the
rest ot the world.
Ranchers and other cattle raisers
in Western Canada were extremely
anxious tn accept the advantages of
this splendid offer. The Liberal
party did accept it and the Laurier
government introduced a bill iu parliament containing Canada's acceptance of ft. But the big interests of
eastern Canada opposed the opening
of the United States market to
our people. These big interests insisted that they and they only should
he allowed to buy, handle and reap
profits on the cattle ot the west.
And seeing his chance of political
gain, the emoluments of office audi
j the sensafion of power It. L..Borden
entered into a compact with these
big interests pledging himself to oppose freedom for the producers of
the west if they, the big interests,
in retain would put up a big enough
campaign fund" to buy the way (if
j the Tory party into power.
! This deal, as nefarious as any
known in the history of the Dominion
of Canada, a deal in which the liberties of thc west were bought and
sold, was successfully carried through;
and this country was denied one of
tbe greatest boons ever offered it.
The triumph of the big interests, the
■placing of Mr. Borden in bis coveted)
position of power, cost the people of
Western ^Canada untold millions nf
dollars. Beef alone has been selling
at three dollars per hundredweight!
higher in Chicago than in Winnipeg.
Ranchers and other Canadian raisers
of cattle have had to sustain this
loss in order that the big interests
might wax fatter and Mr. Borden
plume himself as prime minister.
It may be tbat congress will shortly remove the duties on meat and
food animals, and that Canada will
greatly benefit thereby, but the gain
to this country will not he what it
would have been under the reciprocity agreement. tinder reciprocity
Canada was granted tariff concessions accorded to no other country,
but under the proposed tariff irvisioni
measure this country will only receive the same advantages given
all other countries.
Canada lost, and lost heavily,
the defeat of reciprocity. And
person has yet been able to point
an) single thing) this country gained
by the rejection of the policy of
free trade and wider markets.

Information has readied us, remarks the London, Eng., Daily News
and Leader, of recent date, whieh
throws nn important light upon the
present manoeuvres of the Unionist
party in regard to food taxation.
We understand that when Mr. Hor-
den, the prime minister of Canada,
visited this country in the autumn of
last year in order to discuss ihe naval position with the government,
there wert. important communications between ihe heads of tlie Unionist party and the Canadian premier.
The net result of these communications is that the Unionist party hi
this country is, more or less, bound
by an understanding with the Conservative government in Canada that
they will, uphold the policy of imperial preference ln this country.
Since that policy cannot be carried
out either with Canada or Australia
without taxing food, it follows that
the Unionist leaders are now bound
in honor to remain faithful to the
policy of food taxation.
Viewed in thc light of this information, several matters become very
much clearer. One is Mr. Honar
Law's new policy of submitting tlie
whole question to a conference of ihe
oversea dominions. It follows that if
the Unionist lenders have already
been in informal conference with the
prime minister of Canada, it is but
tlie natural sequence of that action
(hut, they   should  be ready to niter
into ;t colonl
discussion afd

new information shows what
promises probably were.
We i.nderstand that in tlii
change of views between tbe Conservative partjf in Canada and the
Unionist pari' in England Mr. Hor-
den pouted o'lt (hat the Canadian

a pledge to upttold the policy of preference t i (heft Britain as an alternative lo rec.uiocily to the I'nited

If the Unionist paity gave it up the
policy would he, for all practical purposes, practically dead on this side
of the Atlantic Hinder those circumstances the Canadian government
would regard themselves as having a.
free hand to reconsider the situation.
They, too, might turn their hacks on
the imperial preference already established in Canada (a 83 per cent preference to certain classes or Hritish
It follows, therefore, that the
Unionist leaders cannot possibly
adopt the policy of the "Daily Telegraph" and postpone the question of
fooil taxes until after the next election, for the reply of Canada would
probably he that they could not wait.
Imperial preference would be given
up in the Dominion, and it would he

In Great Britain. lie has himself
suffered very heavily from that combination, and his policy of free
trade on tbe North American continent has been defeated.
Tlie trusts have won in Canada,
and they are doing their best to
help the.r friends ii> England. The
result in Canada lias been—we arc
credibly informed—to give a serious
set-back lo the prosperity of the
wheat fields in the far west, where
the farmers cannot1obtain their natural market towards thc south for
Canadian wheal. What is to be the
result in England? Is this sinister,
combination between the Protection**
ists in the various parts of the empire to succeed in raising the price of
the cost of thc food of the Hritish
people? If so, then it will be the
greatest blow that has ever been delivered to the very existence of tbe
British empire.

Toronto, .Ian. 28.—Members of the
Dominion Orange, in their thirty-
eighth annual session at Victoria
hall last week listened to some
traidi and stirring statements from
Henry Qlcndcnnlng, master ot tlie
Orange, in his annual review ol tbe
conditions and problems affecting the
interests of the farmer.
Th? master again demanded reciprocity with the United States in natural products, urged an increase in
the British preference, opposed the
construction by the federal government ol leading roads throughout the
country, favored the inauguration, of
a parcels post, local option in assessment reform and a referendum on
the navy question. He denounced
militarism in the schools, and in
general spoke of injustice buffered- by
farmers in many lines of taxation to
assist favored interests, monopolies
and so-called infant Industries to
pay large dividends on stock, much of
which is water. He sighed for the
good old days before the lure of the
city and modern inventions interfered
with the intimate relations of neighbors, substituted the city daily <for
the country week paper, and depopulated the rural districts.

Will you box Tommy Burns • 20
rounds in Paris first week in June
for white championship of the world''
Burns is willing to meet you. Waiting
heavy weights   who    have ever    pel'
formed in the ring Tommy holds tlie
| premier position.
"If I matched McCarty and any
other white hope in Paris I would
lose   money,"     explained Mr. Klegin
I last night.     "Rut just as long      as
' Tommy Burns is one of the men 1

I both places and   the name ol Tommy
! and the word 'champion' are synonymous in those places. The bout between Luck   McCarty and Burns will
'draw fans from England and Ireland
| as well as France.
"In Paris Tommy lights under the
name of Noah     Brusso and is intro-
! duced as thc French-Canadian champion. This takes with the Frenchmen. In Ireland Tommy is known,
as the Irish-Canadian champion and
anyone in Ireland will argue thai
Burns is an Irish name aud so
Tommy must be an Irishman."
i Although the terms offered Burns
have not been made public it is   well
j known that Tommy has repeatedly
slated that he would not box unless
iffered a purse of $25,000.

Y. M. C. A. Notes
"Characteristics of Great Men
Which are Worthy of Emulation,''
was the subject handled at the R. R.
Y.M.C.A. last Sunday. Messrs.
Oeorgc Furlong and K. \V. Turnley
were the speakers and they, in the
brief time at their disposal, gave us
some splendid points which wc could'
do no better than follow. It was a
splendid meeting from every point of
view. .Mr. George Stevenson was
the soloist, and his rendition of
"King David's Lament'' was something long to be remembered and a
treat very much appreciaU-d by all.
His re-appearance at our meet.ug
will long be looked forward to. The
singing of the body of men who attend these meetings is a feature and
the assistance of Mr. .lack Kettcr-
ingliam at the piano and Messrs. Reg
Hockey and A. JOliffo on their violins makes the musical part most
attractive. This meeting will be
held every Sunday at 16,15, starting
on time and finishing at 17k.

The bowling tournament started in
earnest last night. The teams represented were the Thistles and the
Tigers. Although it may not sound
possible, the Tiger sat down on the
Thistle with evident enjoyment. However, it is to be hoped it will see the
point in the near tuture and not be so
rash. The players were: Tigers,
R. Brown, with scores of 145—131—
133; R. Mansfield, 1111-114-98, P.
Hrault, 135-100-112; II. E. Steplv
ens, 171-101-105, and the Thistles,
Oeorge Grant, 110-113—150; P.
MacAskill, 110-147-159- .1. Wilkinson, 105-120-131, and W. E,
Stephens, 110-150-178, making a
total score for thc Tigers of 1671
and for the Thistles of 1631. The
next match will be on Thursday
night at 20k when the Dread noughts
will meet the Ramblers.
Any employers of labor of any kind
will confer a favor on the management if they will inform the secretary of any help they need as many
men come in here asking for work of
all kinds and we will be pleased to
send them around.

■Josltm, ot   Wellington
who has been visiting
The greatest .uteres £jhas been taken by New Zealand iui ^.iiiada's naval
contribution to Greu/^.titain, said
Mr. Joslcii, who is a ^.,, nber of a
large wholesale linn. As u general
thing the Canadian government's policy is splendid, but a et-liug is growing that, as regards a permanent
policy, Hritish Indi>, Australia,
New- Zealand and I aada should
unite and establish a Met in the Pacific ocean which, iu Mr. .losleu's
opinion, is the one to la* guarded, in
view of the "yellow peril."
"We are somewhat more ia sympathy with the Vnited States in
New Zealand thai, you are," said
Mr. Joslcn, "Ami we would expect its help ii case any danger
should a:ise fi 'oi i Oriental invasion."
There was a lrrge aad increasing
trade between New Zealand and
Canada aud it would probably be
broadened as the result ol tariff revision now before the New Zealand
parliament, which is looked to result
in a preference to (Ireat Britain and
its colonies.
"I, myself, am here to open negotiations wilh Canadian exporters,"
he said.

For a good many years it has lh*en
felt that tbe west should have some
direct means of producing pure water
other than those bottled brands shipped from Eastern Canada and the
States. Most of the lar^'r western
cities have experienced difficulty in
obtaining a water supply for general
use even, which i- not contaminated.
Witli these fads in view a new company has heen organized, known as
the Banff LiUiia Water Company,
Limited, and it is their intention to
commence activities in their new
plant in BanlT early this summer.
This compady will bottle BanfT
Springs water and by-products, and

Springs water and by-products, and
their name throughout Canada and
the United Stales, where they propose to market their waters. The
optimistic directors of the company
anticipate a big demand, and are
preparing to meet it iu a very capable way.
That the demand for, B. C. lumber
on the prairies ibis year will exceed
the supply is the prediction made by-
Mr. W. If. Uusiring, head of the well
known Calgary lumber firm of dishing Bros., and member for Calgary
in the Alberta legislature, who is
.spending some days in Vancouver to
arrange for the Immediate supply of
the greater part of the senson's lumber from tlie mills (f the British Columbia coast. While admitting
there was no scarcity of lumber in
the prairie provinces at the present
time, Mr. Cushing slated Ihul it was
gcnerallv anticipated that the demand this year for prepared lumber
would he so great that the inillr
east of the mountains would be hard-
pushed to supply all the lumber needed for building purposes. "There Is
no doubt that all the mills will he
kept working nt full blast Ihrough-
aut the entire season," said Mr.
Cushing, "as the building operations
in the prairie towns arc more extensive than ever before." Calgary is
in the throes of a building boom
according to her legislative representative, who is authority for the
stotemcnl that things move along so
fast in Calgary that it is n hard
matter to keep posted on the phenomenal development of this go-abend

Nelson, B. c , Jan, 28.—By one ol
tbe largest major!Mex ever given g
mayoralty candidate in Svlson,
Alderman Herbert Keefe and his ai-
dertmuiie tlcloftt were elected at the
civic fleetiiiii*- w.vierdav, defeating J.
\. Irving and his aldermantc slate
who entered the field as advocates
of mota! reform polity in suppon of
which tlie ministerial association has
been carrying on a bitter and vindictive campaign -inc.. early last fall.
Although Keefe's election was gen-
eialh expected, tlie large majority of
one hunhred ;.hd eighty-nine which he
secured w;is a surprise as ii was not
anticipated that tho mitral reform
proposals would be so emphatically
A featuie of the election was the
large numbei nf women voters who
lurtied out to the polls. This vote
was claimed largely by the moral reformers bul the rcBiill seems to In-
dicafe] that the women must have
voted with their husbands. It was
Irving's third defeal as mayoralty
candidate. Keefe.'s alderinanie slate
includes     .lames    Johnstone,     well
known railway and mining engineer
who is now ranching near Nelson;
A. A. perrier, prominenl business
man; .lohn Bell, local lumberman, for
many years resident in Nelson and
Aid. w. m. Cunlifle, director of the
Nelson Iron works and member of
last year's city council. Other al-
dermanic candidates elected were:
Aid. I. A. Austin, nominee of the
trades and labor council and el-
Alderman Edward Kerr, apartment
block proprietor, who ran as an independent.
Members of the Anti-Arthur ticket
elected are: Ex-Mayor .lohn Hamilton, Dr. Annie Vera .lones and William .Johnston, they now have control of the school
board. It vaj against
Dr. Jones that the energy nf the
Arthur forces was chiefly concentrated, because she has advocated, as
member of the board foi the past
two years, reforms which the Hamilton ticket is pledged to carry out.
School officials and teachers got into
tbe fight and canvassed foi votes for
the continuance of the Arthur regime and the bitterest rf feeling was
! aroused.      Arthur   some time      affi
tiroatencd he  would resign if     Dr.
.tones were re-elected but later withdrew this statement on 'he ground
that      he  had  entered     tibel action

In ibi.. respeel thc minister had
nol properly discharged bis duty,
Sir Wilfrid said il would have bei'n
belter if Ihe board finally named bad
been allowed to inquire into conditions over the whole line. The net,
he said, should be administered in as
conciliatory manner as possible.
This bad been the mile in the past
and it had done much good. In conclusion he said he would suspend final
Judgment in the matter until all the,
papers bad been brought down.
Premier Borden agreed that tbe
question could not be properly discussed without the papers Tbe op-
posltion should have given notice
thai the motion was to be discussed
In dealing with this matter he said
the minister of labor had been Impressed Willi fncl thai such an Investigation as was proposed might
nol resiili in the most good to the
men. In appointing a .partial board
Ibis minister had also been impressed
by Ibe fact that it might be belter in
ihe interests ol Ihe men thai tbe
merits of Ihe ease should be ascertained with thfc least possible delay.
Tbe government, be said, had nothing to conceal in regard lo the matter and the papers would be produced.
, He reuretted that some of the employees who bad gone on strike are
still without their positions and expressed the hope that this condition
would not continue.
Hun. Geo. P. Graham said tbat ihe
attitude of the minister revealed a
remarkable change In the last few
months. During the South Renfrew
by-election he, as former minister of
railways, had been accused nf not
being true lo the Grand Trunk employees because he had failed to secure their reit.stalrmeiit. lie could
no! see, therefore, how the present,
minister could expeel to escape
blame. The government was in
peculiar position because Ibis brotherhood which had been refused a
hoard insofar ns the C\p H. was concerned, had heen recognized by thc
I.C.R. a government-owned railway.
There was no reason why a general
board should nol have lieen granted.
It was the work nf the department
of labor to settle strikes. II bad
nothing else lo do. \s for himself,

w. \. Buchanan, Medicine Hat,
said thai ho had been accused of being a partisan of the minister of
labor, because he had approved of bis
action in going west to study labor
conditions. He was sorry, therefore, to have lo critici.se him in regard lo this matter. The minister
should have been anxious to encourage this labor union, as Ibe government had encouraged it in giving it
recognition on tho I.C.It. In Western

the fact that though the opposition
resolution was for tbe production of
the papers in connection with the
case yet they were procoeding at
once to discuss the case. Tbey were
anxious to get something upon which
in condemn the minister rather than
lo assist Ibe C.P.R. employees. As
,i matter of fact, he said, a board
bad heen granted. Those having
grievances had submitted their eases
and a decision had been banded down.
If thai decision were to be questioned, that  was quite another matter.
Hon Mr, Lemieux referred to a resolution passed at thc recent labor
congress in Guolph, Ont., calling far
the repeal of tile act, and said, that
one reason adduced for tbe action
was the administration of the acl
by the department of labor.
Hon. Mt, Crothers: "The labor congress was held Ipng before the refusal of a board and consequently the
refusal had nothing to do with, it.
The motion as n matter of fact, was
based on the Montreal street railway
dispute and that was brought before
the department before we came into
Mr. Lemieux continued that the objection of the labor men was as to
tbe delays and technical objections
raised in the department. He thought
ii was the duty of the minister to
put the measure into force whenever
possible and to give it bis sympathy.
The minister should not fear tbe
magnitude of the case, it. was quite
true that labor sometimes had imaginary grievances but it should be easy
for the minister to find out the particular grievance showing where Ihe
shoe pinched."
''This act," Mr. Lemieux said, "in
spile of the resolution ol the labor
congress has within the last five or
six years been the means of settling
ninety eases out of every one hundred submitted to it. It would be a
ureal pity indeed if through undue
leanings loward tile corporations,
i hough with this 1 do nol charge the
minister, the department should defeat the very ends of this legislation."

ureal increase in the rural population
of Western Canada there had been a
much greater increase in the urban
population. If this goes on Indefinitely, where will il hind us? ashed
Mr. Burrcll.
He proceeded: "We, in this parliament who are making the laws of the
nation, may well ask. ourselves 'in
[it way can be,best solve these
questions of great national concern'.'"
It will not be denied that the safe-
n-iarding of its productive classes is
i matter of fundamental importance
to tbe nation. But in regard to the
tgricultural life of our country il is
not alone a betterment of economic
conditions that we should aim al,
mt something liner—the creation of a
rural civilization which will at once
induce n fuller and happier life to
those in its midst, and prove a
source and fount of strength to the
slate itself.
I nsofar as I bis federal government is concerned, we have come to
the conclusion that we can besl bring
ibotit this work by freely assisting
the agricultural population. If we
are told that this is an innovation,
we answer that il is the people's
money, drawn from them, and it is
not only defensible but desirable
tlinl such money be spent in the
most efficient way to oBtaln the
objects referred to.
"In choosing education or Instruction as a desirable line which federal
expenditure should take, we are
following the best method of the
most progressive countries. Practical-
It no advance was made in. agricultural progress in the great German
nation until the system if secondary
and elementary agricultural instruction was organized during the second
half of the last century."
Mr. Burrcll then reviewed nl some
length what bud been done along
educational lines for the farmers in
Great Britain. Denmark, Belgium,
and France.
11 i-- proposed by thc bill to
strengthen nil lines of instruction
and educational work. The scientific researches of the past half century have revolutionized agriculture,
but the full benefits of these researches bgve not reached tlie great
multitude who today till the fields of
Canada. Too often the spectacle is
witnessed, pathetic and pitiful of
easeless, laborious toil bringing
distress of mind and body, and even
after long years, bringing no reward,
solely and simply from lacJi of knowledge and iiiisdlrnetiMl energy. Help
given iu an educational direction will
their crying. The best proof of this
is the fact that children who have
once bad Zam-Buk applied come for
it again.
For more serious burns, too, it is
unequalled. Mr, .lohn Johnston,; of
731 South Marks Street, Fort William, Out., a moulder in t'opp's
Foundry, says: "Some time ago I
burned the top of my foot severely by
dropping some molten iron from a
ladle I was carrying, A large hole
was burned through my shoe and into the top of my foot. 1 .was taken
home, and Zam-Buk was applied to
Ibe burn directly. Il was surprising
what relief ibis balm alTordcd. The
hum was so deep and so serious that
it required careful attention, but
Zam Huk prevented other complications arising, and as it was daily
applied, soothed the pains and allayed the inflammation- In the course
of two weeks the hole burned iu my
foot had heen quite healed."
Mr. W. B. Gibson, of Belleville,
writes: "Wc have tried Zam-Buk often on cuts and sores, and T think
lliere.is nothing   that can equnl^lt."
Zam-Buk wilt also be found o sure
cure for cold sores, chapped hands
frost bite, ulcers, blood-poison, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores, ringworm, inflamed patches, babies' eruptions and chapped places, and skin injuries generally. All druggists and
stores sell at TiOc. box or post free
from Zam-Buk To., Toronto, Tor
not only mean better farming, but
better farmers and better and happier men and women.
"The particular form such assistance may take," said Mr, Burrcll,,
"may vary "with the special needs
and conditions in each province. It
will embrace the increased efficiency
and eqiiipiiu-ni of our agricultural
colleges, the establishment of agricultural schools, of horticultural
schools, tbe establishment of short
courses in agriculture, the initiation
of agricultural teaching in the public
schools, and work by travelling or
qualified instructors. It might well
include valuable work carried on by
means of demonstration trains, traint-
ing of the teachers in nalure study
and the invaluable work of domestic
science, concerned with tbe women
and girls of our communities, whose
influence will always constitute one
of the most, potent forces in solving
Ihe problems we are considering.'
"We restrict the hill to education
because hy so doing we get at the
hue base of successful production!. As
ait educational work to be effective
must be continuous, we propose to
make the policy cover a period of
ten years.
'From the consolidated revenue
fund it is proposed to set apart the
sum of ten million dollars to be expended over the period mentioned.
The sum of $700,000 will be allotted
the first year, and this amount will
be increased by $100,000 annually until 1017 from which year until 1923,
SI,100,000 will be provided annually.
The gradual expansion and growing
equipment of the provincial organizations will be met in this way more
helpfully than by starting at the
million mark),
"Speaking broadly, we have adhered to the principle of division on a
population basis. The slight modification of this principle which have
been adopted will, I trust, meet the
approval of the house.
"Thus in the first place, we set
apart $20,000 a year to he divided
between such veterinary colleges as
grant degrees and come up to the required standard. We do this on
the ground that from the character
of our veterinary work and for the
reason that students in these institutions are drawn from all provinces
iu Canada, they might be regarded
as having a purely national com-
"On this I will speak further when
Ibe bill is before the house.
"In addition to this $20,000 we
propose lo allot to each province, regardless of population, the sum of
$20,000. It has been urged—not
without some reason—that support,
should he shown to those provinces
whose rural population is of large
proportions, whose source of revenue
is limited and whose agricultural development greatly needs stimulation.
"I might tnk>e the tar eastern and
far western provinces us examples.
Prince Kdward Island is purely agricultural, with no minerals or timber to draw on for revenue. The incessant call nf the west has resulted
in a continual drain on its population, and agricultural development is
a matter of the greatest importance.
In tbe case of British Columbia we
have a new province of immense
area, small as yet in .population, just
starting to develop .her resources,
ind where the cast of living is perhaps highen than in any other portion-
ot our Dominion. I might touch thc
'ftse of other provinces, hut the arguments will sufllce tor the present, ami
we feel there is justification for the
step proposed.

the amounts allotted will then be

The balance of Mr. Burrell's speech
was devoted to outlining the working,
of the bill, which includes reasonable
federal supervision over,the expenditures, and asked for the co-operation
of the provinces,
Hon. Fi iik Oliver,said be approved
of the gran'.. He thought the minister was Irving to make a spectacular play because thc vote for the
year was only $700,000, and not ten
millions. The grant would do good,
but the government would not discharge ils full duty to the farmers of
Ibe west unless it got, for them the
best available market.
