"A comparison of the half yearly
statement of revenue to the 31st December, 1005, with that of 11)04,
shows: To December 31, 1001, $1,-
235,103; and to December 31st, 1005,
$l,188,505-a decrease of $16,058. But
as the 1004 statement includes tlw
$225,000 brought to tlie treasury under the Chinese Restriction Act, wo
can regard the showing as a satisfactory one, showing an increase of revenue for Uw half year of over
$150,000, while the estimate or expenditures is also less for the half
year, than iu IDOL This fact is not
so significant, as the proportion ol
moneys voted, il not spent in the lirst
half is usually included in the second
half of the year. However, from tho
returns made and taking into account
the supplementary estimate of $8:i,*
82,'l asked for the current year, I
feel quite safe in prophesying thai
lhc end of tlw year will show lhat
once more we have succeeded in living
wi Ui in our income, and possibly have
a small balance to the good.
"Now, with regard to to-day's estimates of revenue and expenditure
for tbe fiscal year ending 80th June
next, you will see that the revenue is
estimated at $2,617,076, or $87,000
more than for the present year, although in arriving at that amount
allowance has been made for decreases under certain heads. Owing
to the amendments to the Assessment
Act by which Uw personal property
tax has been reduced, there being also
some reductions iu railway property
tax, and a classification made ol
timber and coat lands, and also to
the fact that' we find, that although
ihere is a large increase in income
lax from $28,010 in 1903, to $72,000
iu 1005, still Uw estimate for last
year was in excess. We have con-
nQA'gnn'sequen-tiiy reduced the estimate under
11 n«ii nan I these- heads thus: Taxes, under the
I'JjTJSJ four headings referred to, $65,000;
1 ' ' 'mining receipts generally, including
free miners' certificates, $15,000; li-
cinses, $20,000; coal laxes and royalty, $20,(100, and miscellaneous, $40,-
000, a grand total of $100,000. On
the other hand we arc able to increase our estimate of revenue from
1 land sales and land revenue generally
'liy $35,000; revenue from Uie timber
riiyalties and licenses, $130,000; mineral tax, $15,000; unworked crown-

"The great advance made in tlie
past year i.s the more gratifying foi
the reason that it is not alone due lo
the increased juice ot I'he various
metals, more particularly copper, but
also to the increased tonnage mined,
over 211,000,000 pounds of lead am.
half a million pounds of copper. Then
i.s one it-em in this connection worthy of special reference as pointing to
lhe creation of what is practically
a new industry for this province, Ihal
is zinc, the increasing quantity ol
which mined, some 13,000 tons, developed in connection with the operation of Uie lead mines in the Koolenay country, was for a time the most
serious problem confronting the mine
owners. But now Ihal the mallei
has been intelligently taken in hand,
a commission of the foremost men in
tlieir profession have reported on Ih
question and this has led lo lhe c-
tahlishmeut of plants al Kaslu and
Krank for lhe purpose nl dealing witli
these ores, and a new and prontftWi
Industry appears to he opening up in
this connect ion.
'Hut noi only have we In congratulate ourselves upon Uio increased pro-
duel ion of ores, but upon the fact
thai 1his increase Iras led lo such
stimulated activity in smelling. All
our smelters are now working, and
have increased their capacities, new
plants are being established; and we
have the satisfaction ot knowing lhat
almost every pound of ore produced
is now smelted or otherwise treated
within the boundaries of our own
"Passing now to the most satisfactory growth of our agricultural interests, I think it is safe to say thai
the number ot people who have come
to the province in the past year,
and the en-quirles for land, have exceeded ihose of any former year.
M::rc. especially does this apply to
immigration from Manitoba and the
Canadian Northwest, whence many
who have shared in Mie general prosperity, h-ave crossed lhe mountains
to Invest their savings and make
their homes in the middle climate of
llritish Columbia. Almost invariably
the empiiries are in the direction of
fruit growing, drain growing is ual-
ur.iily discouraged as the land can he
put In much more profitable uses for
dairying, swine raising, poultry farming, etc.,   in      all uf    which'   llieie
is great opportunity for expansion
as the consumption and demand are
far in excess nf the homo production,
a condition which, however, i.s already beginning io show improvement, as we (luii the Imports ot agricultural products tor 1005 are
slightly U.ss than in 1004. In 1005
we imported Irom foreign countries
$1,-838,608 worth of products under
this head, and from other provinces
of Canada, $4,821,170, paving duties
thereon of Uhi,mis, making Hie total
expenditure in thi., connection $7,003,-
040. In 100-1 lire imports trom foreign countries had totalled $1,600,817;
fmm other provinces, $5,008,021,
making a total valuation of $7,100,-
138, wiih dulies paid of $201,020,
bringing the tolal tor lhat year to
$7,401,30*1, showing an Improvement
of $187,718 less sent oul of lhe province Ihan iu previous years, which
may be attributed almost entirely to
lucreascd locai production. But as
the amounts of products handled or
marketed i.s over $12,000,000 and the
local production a little over $5,000,-
000, ii is pi,tin there i.s still a great
opening for those willing lo engage in
the industry. We are at the present
time negotiating wiih the department
of agriculture al Ottawa with respect
to the formation of a live stock association, ami the holding of sales of

one thing which impressed me was
the fact Ihal as far as the fruit industry is concerned, the growers commence iu this country with a clean

After the exhibition in England, Mr.

'might always feel confident ot selling such fine fruit at an equal or

Victoria, March 1.—In the legislature to-day lhe debate on thc sccund
reading ot Die hill to amend the
Columbia and Western Railway Subsidy Act, 1-890, was continued by
Henderson (Yale) and Bowser (Vancouver). Paterson (Islands) moved
the adjournment.
This afternoon's debate elicited no
new points ol special importance on
either side. Henderson, however,
clearly showed hv reference to the
legislation ot 1001, that lhe Columbia
tV Western company weie re-established iu their original status created hy aeis of 18!t.s, and Hmt consequently the several negotiations of
1-800-99 and 1000, including the Mackenzie A Mann bargain, had no hearing upon the present slate of the
case. In 1001 the Columbia A Western Railway company, by petition,
had secured tiie passing of a bill restoring their rights lo construct-sec-
twns five and six of the line, and
with this restoration the contract
was as it criginallr stood in 18;)t:
save that an extension uf time was
granted in which to make surveys.
In concluding his review of the history of the Columbia A Western
transactions, Henderson moved, in
amendment to tbe resolution "lhat
thc bill be read a second lime now,"
the following: "That all the words of
the resolution after lhe first; word
'that' Iw struck out and the following  substituted  therefor:
"That, whereas, lhe Columbia and

is estimated that there were 100,0001 Columbia A W
pounds of private manufacture, increasing the tolal production to some

As to quality, I mav say lhat Mr.

and ils uniformity.

loge, es-prendrnt ol the <>nt*ii<i Agricultural ami Hiperimeitul 1 mon,
ami son of tin* fit st mimst-rr of tgri-
ciiltiiie for Ontario, was the speak-
et, ami it is nemllrhs to say that be
was list-toad to with great Interest
by Ins distrngu-islnsi awlence, The
undress was *-. follows:
Mi Drury ofassrvod tihnl the faun
ers are, as a rule, a silent class;
then views were not often beard, bui
their importance warranted thell being heard more often than ttw-y are
Tlw rural population comprised thret-
tilths oi Uh* population of ■■i-e wun-
Iry, while tliey had three times as
mueh capital invested as all tbe
Other enterprises of the country combined, the figures toeing $_.;imi,ihmi,immi for the iai
mers ami $542,000,000 fur the
oUh-i interests. Wore than that,
they added to the wealth of Uiv
country 1443,000,000 pcr year, while
all the other producers combined only
added $;ittv,oiH).(Miu.
"I know that will be challenged at
once," Mr. Drury added, "as the census figures show that the products of
the manufacturers were $481,(KK*,00«.
If you will look at tlw question you
will lind that the manufacturer adds
to the wealth of the country only by
the additional value that he gives to
bis raw material, therefore, the
amount of Iris raw material has to be
deducted from the census figures."
Mr. Drury said that the census figures of 1891—tbe details were jot hi
the returns for 1901—Show**! that thc
raw materials amounted to about
one-half the finished product, and his
estimate had been made on that
For the farming class Mr. Drury
claimed merit as -tbe backbone of
stability in the country. "I know
our faults," he said, "but we are
less swayed by the excitement of tbe
moment tliat} any other class." Tlie
farmers' case before the tariff commission, lie said, had been practically
unanimous in saying that protection
dhl not help them. They produced
mainly pork, beef, cheese, butter and
grain,' awl even if th? bulk of thest
products were consumed at home the
larmer knew very well by practical
experience that the price he received
was regulated in tbe foreign market
to which the surplus was exported.
"At tbe same time, we do not want
to form a combine, we wanl to remain law-abiding citizens,'' said Mr.
Drury, amid laughter, admitting,
amid further laughter, that such a
combination was impossible, anyway
Canada is an exporting country, and
as the last great open land in the
world with such great resources still
to be exploited, it would continue to
be so. "If Canada Imports agricultural products we will have lo open
up communication with Mars or some
other planet and get them for the
whole world," said Mr. Drury.
Under these circumstances, the farmer is convinced that no twisting
ami turning of the tariff can add very
much to the price of what he has to
sell, but, on tbe otber hand, lie knows
that the tariff does add to the price
of what In1 has to buy."
As an illustration, Mr, Drury said
that by actual experience lit had
found ibat it took Uie price he had
received for -.'t fleeces of wool to pay
fm a tweed suit which he bought.
"We don't know where the money
goes, but we have an idea the tariff
has something to do with it somehow," said Dr, Drury, amid laughter
and applailse, As to Uie farmer being prosperous, he admitted tbey
were better off iban tliey used to be.
Hut hy keeping Recounts ou a farm
it had been shown that, allowing for
Interest on investment and wages for
the sons, tlw farmer had nothing left
tor bis own wages. That capital
bail in most oases been handed down
from pioneer days by tbe grandfather
wbo hewed down thc forest. All the
farmers OOUld get was gained only by
the greatest frugality, gOOd manage
ment and carefulness. Thev bad ti
pay from $225 to $285 a year with
board ami washing for a hired man,
owning to the competition *A the
factories in the towns, which were
protected by the taril! and enabled to
pay hither wages Hun tbe farmers.
The farmer had been reasonable ti
their tariff representations, having
only asked Uiat if any etvauge be
mane Uie scale be downward Instead
of upward, ami that tbe llritish preference be carried on as far as it
would go.
"The Manufacturers' Association,"
Mr. Drury continued, "have urged for
mure protection because tbey must
rimi|iete with cheap foreign labor and
groat aggregations o! foreign capital,
What is Mie position of the Canadian
farmer? He pays the bill to help
lhe manufacturer compete with cheap
foreign labor. Who pays bis bill"
The Canadian farmer competes with
elteaper foreign labor than the manufacturer does. Ile competes with tbe
Iia-!f-savage labor of Argentina, with
Uh' pa.ipei labor of India, with the
clteap laibor from all Uie world in the
British market, which is bis only exporting market. We have our cheap
labor competition, and we have dear
labor at tiome here—just as dear as
any class in Uie country have."
Mr. Drury cited the cattle business
as an example, wherein the Ontario
farmer has to compete with the range
fed cattle of Texas and Argentina,
and even the Northwest, but against!
tbe latter he made no complaint, as
ttie people there were brother Canadians. Under -those circumstances,
the farmers were entitled to some
relief, and tlie paternal sympathy of
tbe Manufacturers' Association, who
presumed to argue for their welfare,
was deserving ot tlie name of
MPecksnHIkwi.,r Notwithstanding thel
development of tlie west, the rural!
population of Canada bad only increased by 1.62 per cent, in the last
census decade. How could the country go ahead when its basic industry
remained stationary? It was like
building a house by taking the bricks

Only a few days ago I read how a
kind look and a tear of sympathy
upon the face of a clergyman led to
the conversion of a poor convict.
Such kindness is easily bestowed,
and yet how often it 'is withheld,
even from those wln.se souls are
yearning' for our sympftthJU those
who know so little of gladness, bin
have tasted to the very dregs of life's
bitter cup. Yes, if wc would be
truly happy, we must become so
busy and Interested in trying lo lessen the suffering of others that we
will forget our own misfortunes. As
wc journey through life, iel us never
hesitate to turn aside into llie path
of self-denial if duty calls us tliere,
tor there is always a blessing, in
duty, although it may often seem to
interfere with pleasure. Hut whoever is truly noble and worthy will
keep this principle uppermost iu his
mind. Let us do our duly while the
years come and go, aiid although
their loyliest season blooms but lo
fade again, let benevolence, pure
flowers, never fade from the path

within our souls hope and contentment, if not actual joy, will ever
bloom in ail t-he freshness ami beauty
of glorious springtime.
Tbe eighteenth century will stand
iu history as the age in which the
doctrine of Uie rights of man developed commanding strength and
popular sway. The French Revolution in Europe, and the American
Revolution in this country, spread
democratic ideas broadcast. Tlie
nineteenth century did very much to
secure the rights of woman. At ,thc
close ol the preceding century, housekeeping and serving were about the
only occupations open to women
To-day ttiere Is hardly any occupation which she is not Iree to enter,
It is quite generally acknowledged
that she Iras the right to do anything that she can do well, and
that, too, without any surrender of
her womanhood. Whatever other
great things the twentieth century
shall achieve, we feel quite sure that
it will be characterized by a more
intelligent appreciation of the rights
of children, and better agencies and
methods for their training and development. It will be the reminiscence of childhood.
Home should be made the most interesting and best loved spot, oi
earth, not merely four square wall;
of wood and brick; it should he the
fountain of civilization, the very
word should touch every filler of our
soul, and strike every chord iu Ihe
human heart with Its angelic fingers,
a place where that is centralized oi
the higher and better things of life
bringing forth in the highways and
byways an influence that wil. Ire felt
by all with whom it comes in contact. It slwuld be a place wltere the
heart is, a place where our feel may
leave but not our hearts, a place
where angels unfold their wings, lhe
place we love best, because it Is the
place where mother is.
Man can build the house and roof
it in, a resistence against the storms
and elements; but the man with all
his genius and artisan science cannot make the home; that ever has
and ever will 'be the task of woman
It is she alone that can bring to it

thu urigtual agreement between tlietn
and tlte Urand Trunk provided lur a
payment oi tin,uuu if the laud was
secured. When actions of this char-
aetei on the part of the government
an; strenuously defeuded by partisan
papers, the freedom and independence
uf the press becomes a misnomer, antl
Mn admiration of the public turns tu
scorn anil piiy.
The Calgary Daily Herald is one of
the strongest Conservative papers in
the west, and its independence has
given it unusual influence. The Herald is not published within the
boundaries of British Columbia, bul
il n were, il would make no difference as to Its Conservatism or its
opinions upon public matters. He
felling to the investigation ol the
Kaien island affair, this Conservative
Calgary paper makes this righteous
and stinging comment;
The investigation of thc odious
Kaieii scandal is drawing to- a
close. All British Columbia is
convulsed with indignation over
the affair. The spectacle of government secrets being peddled
around among a crowd of harpies
ts revolting to every decent sentiment, The cabinet which, rightly
or wrongly, js charged with the
responsibility lor this miserable
development in lhc 0. T. P. promotion deserves lhe censure the
members are receiving. Tiie traflic in legislative favors lias gone
on BO uiililushingly at Victoria so
long as to encourage the lobbyists
tu attempt anything which promotes loot.
If a Liberal paper in British Columbia had printed the above, the servile
Journalistic time servers of the Conservative camp would have howled
with indignation and charged the
guilty paper wilh endeavoring to
make political capital. British Columbia needs a few Conservative
papers like tlie Calgary Herald, a
paper that holds loyalty to the people above loyalty to party.
The Conservatives are saying lhat
thi- defeat of the Liberal candidate in
Quebec ir, the firsl step in the down-
fail of the Lauiier government. The
man who was elected is a straight
labor man and ran on the labor
tickel. In one ot his talks he said
that if elected it would he by Liberal
and Conservative voles and no party
qajild claim the credit of his election,
and that he would, go to Parliament
as a labor represenfa-live nnd not as
ii Conservative or a Liberal. That
ought to settle it and stop a lot ot
this tomfoolery alHiut the downfall
of Liberalism In Quebec.

The question as lo greater publicity as to the advantages of Cranhrook and districl was generally
discussed, aud it was finally moved

prepare a comprehensive pamphlet
covering the advantages of this section, This was carried and the
chair appointed Messrs, tl, T. Rogers, E. Elwell, A. Moffat, George

travelling Uirough tlte country looking for homes for pour girls in his
country, who had embraced the
Christian faith and wanted homes
where tbey could learn Ute ways ol

what domestic services thev might
perform, The proposition sremi I
lo be a good one in a iiumhei of

would remind the citizen of Corinth,
tli,- citizen ot Cranbrook, lhat Oodly
profession    means   (iodlv expression.
'Ye' are lhe epistle's of Christ.
I pass in sorrowful review  the
n i ' le facts ot our (tolly life:
onr superior selfishness, fruitless frivolity, dHigenl disloyalty, mercenary
motive; our sordid greed, contemptible meanness and hideous Inconsistency, Let us solemnly quest! n if it
is possible for a redeemed and regenerated saint to have feMowsliln
with tlie Holy Spirit upon the floor
nf the dancing hall, to express the
Imperial loveliness nt the Saviour by
means iif corrupting eaids, to adequately a<ml righteously interpret the
fads and forces of Oo'd through the
medium ol pronouncedly worldly influences! I
Shame upon us that we should tor-
got llie   liearts   thai seek   Ior truer.
Wtonghls than these, tor more eloquent passages nt Christian experience turn from tlie archives of'
heaven, it is contemptible that we
shniild even dare to presume thai
Clod could endorse the message ol tho
average careless life.
II our second definition of a
saintly suul is imperial and Important, In Isaiah 43 chapter and Hlih
verse, we read: "Ye ate my 'witnesses' smith ihe Lord."
Prominent anil eloquent in tbe balls
ot hie    there stands forth Satan    as
wnh   nHttcrlng   argument and thtin*
derotis climax     he urgvs upon    men j
lhe   cl.ums ol  lime,  tlie possibilities
ol earth.    Pleasure anil power, |>essi- j
mism, atticism,  these are bis   pleas. I
\ii.i God has commissioned his peoplo
io stand forth in His stead, to   give
righteous   ei .donee,    tu furnish    Invincible lestlmony      "That which wo
have heard, which we have scon With

Wh l is the law we regularly rc-
cogni'/.o, ihe language of our heart,
lhe loyally uf our suul, the real nature of our characteristic life? Do
these differences differentiate us trom
the world? Are we the salt of
Cranhrook? The good salt waves
from corruption the flesh. Are the
united Christian churches of our city
really relanling the profess of cancerous sin? Is ihc community pure
because of our contact with it? Or
aro we 'bound to confess that the
facts publish abroad 'that "tire salt
b*s lost its Savior?
Are you yet convinced that we are
mn  brother's keeper?
IV. Our Lord went on to enlarge
noon the disciple's calling. Mat
thew recites His invitation: "Follow
me and I will make you to become
'fishers' of men."
The fisherman has a definite calling!
It is not lo mine, to legislate, to
wage   warfare,   to   promote pleasur
able picnic:   his   calling    is distinct)
from  all else;   he  is une  who devotes
his entile sell lo fish catching. Aio
we selling guinls mere, driving teams
merely, running macinncrj merely,
earning our wages merely, exhausting
Hie day merely, or is our great calling commanding all our energies so
as lo catch men for Clod?
Tk* fisherman has a detinue character!
In ihe romance and history nf every
nation the) that go down to tl.o
.sea in ships' have found then special
place. His broad sou'-wester, shining oilskins, long sea boots ami
storm tanned countenance, to say
noth Hig uf those marked mannerisms
ol personal it) so peculiarly and exquisitely fashioned by Hie myriad lingers of the ocean—ever proclaim the
man who toils i». reap ihe harvesl of
lhe great  salt   seas.
Do lhe stormy svas and surging
tides ol British Columbia lne evoivi.
Such a type ol Cluisii.ui manhood
possessing such maiks of ,i distinctive,
The fisherman has a definite equipment!
Ile docs nut fmtify himself with
Singer sowing machines, neither does
he embark upon a battleship. Ilo
■lives in closest syinpftthj with nets
and lines, and sails and boats. And]
certain departments of his extensive i
business imperatively demand tho uso
of bait. Well do I remember as a
boy iu the Michigan woods dangling a
In-lit and naked pin among lhe darting minnows in some creek, hul never I
do I remember le ha\ secured one. j
I tacked the, bail. And can the nu-j
attractive ami naked hie of some
lOflll servant of (be Lord perlonn lho;
impossible?       Shall  we not gicully'
loll care'.'    |
uce T.i
.ass    Ihi
mcern ou i sel ves cega id ing personal |
bait? Musi nol believers reveal|
something ol Uie Immortal Saviour
il they would "draw all men" into
tlie Kingdom?
The fisherman has a definite know
lie  knows  the  tides and local conditions of curreii'ts      He is acquainted    with   Uie   movements    ol   his
quarry.       By  his  lechnie knowledge j
he BUCCOdds.     A  man equipped   with;
splendid  rod  and  templing bait    will I
seek in vain for reward in the depths
of tlie domestic rain watei    barrel.
His energy  is    misapplied,  his labor
lost,       Breiberen     we   need to    he
tauglit of Hod  :  our calling demands i
an earnest and thorough knowledge of
lbe human   heart; a knowledge   'hat!
will bring power and ensure success.,
Paul could say: "1 so run not as uncertainty: «o fight 1 not as one that!
'iKM'telli tne air."
V.   But our table of obligations is!
■not yet completely; revealed.     Jesus
■also taught men saving: "Ye are lb
light ol thc world.*'
The Christian community const i
tutes Hie world's light.
Now light  awakens!
When tlie miracle ol another morn
ing is assured ami (lod would once
more awaken to consciousness His
silent hosts, does He stoop to t-he
prostrate ox upon the field, does lie
shake tlie slumbering trees, docs Ho
hammer at tlie homes of men? No!
He lilts His superb sun above the
mountain ridges and at once the fields
and trees and valleys and villages
quiver with strong; sweol life.
Does titc steady, pure light nf out
daily life -awaken in men a conscious*
ness ot sin, of need; of grace? Are
we arousing Cranhrook to a diviner
dav, a day ot Cod?
Light also guWcsl
i    fJeaUemi along our western shores
thi^ lighthouses   aro found.     Yonder
Uirough the darkness the ship slag-
gers toward its port. Suddenly tho
path of light slants across the boiling watei crests and guides, ihe sailor
on his way. That sentinel Hghl fulfils a two-fold function. li ts a
faithful protesl against the darkness
ol ih.' night, il is an efiUienl protest
againsl ihe cruel, ragged reefs. And
also n is ;i power that protects the
strangei ship, tlie storm-smlttec
mariner, tlie unwary, What shall wo
say to-night of our guiding inlluence
as' lights in Cranbrook; what of our
puritanic protest against the sins of
the people; what' ol
sympathy and vigilant
ti.-d help us'     Perhaps stletic
kindly!     May Jehovah awaken us!
Light also promotes life!
The longei light that heralds ihe
springtime brings with it the modest
daisy, the enlivened woodland, Uie
song of stream. The whole world
'hulls wilh intoxicating life. Truly
would our Godliness compel a generous response, our laudable approaches
he crowned wiih garlands and rejoicings were we but loyal io the simple
line of duty, as the spring-tide sun.
VI. In Luke I'd, verse id, our responsibility is exceedingly magnified
toi "the Lord said unto lhe servant,
go out into t-he highways aud hedges
and compel them hi come in!"
Hence wc are searchers!
The sweet smiling valleys of distant South Wales arc robbed of considerable of theii beauty by the pres-
tlie grimy calling and its
g associations, Too sadly
do the shadows of sorrow
s way. Some little negligence, smne unavoidable contingency,
and the dread explosion convulses the
country side. 1 have seen the sad,
sad fates of the wives, thc mothers,
children, and the village girls as
lliey watch the ghastly findings of the
rescuers, praying, hoping that the
mutilated form of father, brother,
lover, might not yet greet tlieir
blinded vision. I have seen the stalwart man seize the heavy mine pick
with heroic power and savagely assail the obstructing seams. ' Thus
struggling, straining madly, fighting,
does be toil until overpowered bv tbe
fumes and hardships he (alls' into
bleeding Impotancy, Hul over the
falling body a comrade leaps, snatching from tbe loosening lingers the insi ruiiieiit  of salvation.
Grim, sturdy heroes, arc these men:
noble achievement theirs1 Hul why
such tireless, ceaseless effort, this
(ranlie sacrifice, this superhuman
courage, this tremendous excitement.?
Behind tlmse pitiless walls of solid
blackness somewhere there are fall.-!
ers, brothers, friends, companions;
Ibis is the sufficient  reason. |
AH around in Crnnbrook city our
brnlhi-rs, friends and loved ones are
bving enlnmhi-d in the blackest dun-
gcons nf misery and disgrace. At
uur very feet Immortal men are being
lured to destruction, despoiled of
manhood, and abandoned for eternity:
while Christians compromise and curiously, criminally remain splendidly,
inactive. In the name of God Almighty, I charge you again Ibis
night:'"On out into the highways and
the hedges" and endeavor to seek and
succour such sow'.s, for wc are our
■brother's keepers!
VII. A last time the Holy Spirit
•directs us to His illustration of one
theme contained in Ezekiel. In Uie
third chapter we are made aware ot
a divine appointment as a watchman!
"Son of man I have made thee a
watchman."     Then follows a   divine.1
Instruction:   "Hear the word at   my
mouth and give them warning    Iiym
me." And then follow these incriminating words, "When I say Ulito Uie
Wicked thou shall surely "die, and
thou givest him not warning to save
his life, the same wicked man shall
die in his iniquity, but his blood will
I require at thine hand!"
In the 33wl chapter this significant
responsibility is even more harshly
pronounced, "It the watchman see
the sword come    ami blow not    the
II umpet, and the people Ik- nut
Warned; if the sword come and take
any person from among them, he is
taken awav in his iniquity, but his
blood will" I require at the watchman's hand."
Appalling is cur responsibility,
amazingly atrocious our conduct! The
souls that are slipping toward the
shadows to-night right in our midst
will face us in condemnation at the
awful bar of God.
(1«h1 graciously pity us: God in
mercy forgive usl What thanksgiving danger! What an unsuspecting
multitude! What sentinels! What
watchman! What guilt! What
blood! Our brother's blood upon
the ground crieth unto God against
us! I appeal to you all as you
believe in eternity, as you believe In
an unending banishment, and eternal
happiness recognize vour Christian
responsibility, respond to God's call
and your brother's cry!

were told that tbey must go hunt for

a fact that there did not exist in the
government office to-day any Information of real practical value to intend in t; seitleis or investors. The
situation was even worse, for it was
a vreM known fact that contrary to
tlie jtatutc law, settlers had been referred to tlie C. P. R. agents for informal ion regarding public lands,
lhat weie not owned by that corporation, but which, in defiance of the
law, ihe company now controlled and
handled as though tliey actually owned them. It was unintelligible to

greatest increase iu provincial revenue
was from our umber resources and
the boom in the lumbering Industry
was directh attributable to Ute settlement of llie northwest provinces,
thanks to the wise and intelligent
immigration policy of the Liberal
government at Ottawa. Another
source uf increased revenue was the
sale of lands, and lie
Columbia was benefited by the splendid efforts of the Dominion government to attract settlers. In this regard il was also only right an.l
proper to consider whal the provincial governmenl hail done to encourage the development of the natural
resources and help along the 'healthy
expansion ci our various industries,
By a reference to lhe public accounts
he found that In the first iwo years
in which ibe Melt rule government
held olliee Ihey increased taxation
upon real property .til per cent., on
personal property 11)5 per cent., upon
wild lands li per cent. Hut with
regard to the latter Hem, which
largely affected land speculators, lie
found that the government recently
reduced the taxation on wild lands
some IU per cent, nuking it barely
equal to 50 per cent, of the taxation
Imposed upon Improved properly. He
found further, that the government
had Increased the Income tax IfiO per
cent, the mineral tax Till per cent, the
coal lax, in lbe shape of royalties,
eic, iu per cent, and had established
a new  lax  againsl   the  mining
try by Imposing a tax on all
granted mineral claims,     In all
instances there was an average

the people <>t British Columb
made   veiy large sacrifices t<
the   finance minister   to announce   a
surplus, but  it    was nol sn apparent
that   this surplus hud  been obtained
by any   wise legislative   or any administrative acl of ihe government.
Oliver said that he fully agreed
with the minister of finance us to the
great potent Iaiiii es of the province,
and Hint it would require an enormous increase in population to at all
adequately exploit these great resources. It was pertinent to ask, he
said what ihe government bad done
or attempted to do to Increase the
population, If the government had
really appreciated the necessities of
tlie case some steps wnuld have lo be
taken to prepare reliable informal ion
for distribution In other parts of
Canada, the United States and Great Scalp
Britain where population might be ob- hair "
tained, and not only
promise of affording another fight,
ihis question before the V  ?■ It-    is
finally confirmed in its claim lot    it
land subsidy.
The first amendment read as follows: ''This aet shall not come into
force until the lieutenant governor in
council is assured that tlie Columbia
and Western company or the C. p.
R, company, has granted to the Pacific coast merchants, equal freight
rates to Koolenay and Crows Nest
points that now obtain, or may obtain, from Winnipeg to the said
points "
The second amendment leads: "Provided always that where any settler
or squatter has occupied continuously, of improved to any reasonable
extent, or made written application
for, prior to the year lWOt), a portion
of land not exceeding 160 acres in
extent situated within the crown
land grant hy the said act, be shall
be entitled to receive from the said
company a grant for the same in accordance with the existing regulations governing the disposal of preempted crown J.tihIk."
It Is understood that the government have made terms with Price Ellison iu regard to the Midway and
Vernon railway bill. The premier's
opposition will be removed and arrangements will be made whereby
an early settlement of the railway's

again mrvwii     T|tp   tnening M.Hsjon Wils    devoted
mainly to the further consideration in
committee of the whole of the bill to
consolidate aud amend the Municipal
Clauses Act. Several oilier bills
were advanced a stage ami the hill
to amend the Columbia and Western
Subsidy Act, passed Uirough committee, with the addition of a new section proposed by Ilawthonithwaiti
as given above,
Mucfiowun's proposed section was
voted down, the premier taking the
stand that to add a clause to the
hill of the nature proposed by MacGowan. was inopportune and unfair.
Tbe grievances of coast merchants in
the matter of C. P. II. freight rates
were being considered by the Dominion Railway Commission and he had
every reason to believe that body
would deal fairly and effectively with
the matter.
Hawthornthwaite's proposed section
did not pass without debate.     Oliver
pointed out that there should be   no
need for such a section,      Cnder   the
statute law   of the province settlers
'I1'*''11 weie entitled to greater  rights   than
11,11    ■ those cited in the proposed new section.     It  was true that   the govern-
I ment of the day had over-ridden   the
i statute law and allowed the C. P. R.
I to handle   lands     tbey bad no claim
I upon.   lie was  afraid   that  the   pro-
i posed amendment would restrict the
i righl s of thc public, which by statute

evidence is concerned. The members
of the committee met this evening to
consider their findings.
This morning's session of the enquiry was hrief. Bodwell and Green
being recalled by Macdonald lo answer to one or two minor points. However, Macdonald succeeded in elicit inn
one piece of information of considerable moment. He had heen questioning Green regarding governmenl lands
at Port Simpson and the boumlaiies
of the Indian reserve in tlie vicinity
of Kaieii island. From replies made
by Green, Macdonald suggested the
probability of the government being
in possession nf tbe lands nud worl .
department's field notes of the survey
of this reserve. On search being
made, field notes dated 1S8-1 were
produced, and these notes distinctly
state tbe fact lhat Kaien island was
an island. This point has been disputed by the. chief commissioner In
defence of his refusal t i accept applications to locate land n:i Kaien
island. The fi«!d notes of the survey of the Indian reserve siiow clearly that, the lands ami works department had in its possession Information of the true nature of Kaien island since 188-1. The reserve was

From Bodwell, Maodonald elicited
the fact that he had prepared the
draft of the agreement between the
Grand Trunk Pacific company and
Larsen ami Anderson, whereby the
former agreed to pay Larsen ami Anderson M0.000 for their assistance in

if that site was finally adopted as lhe
