King Rally Largest in
History of District
EnttHisiasm Runs High and Liberal
Speakers Receive Vociferous
The Liberal rally held in Went-
worth hall on Thursday evening last
was undoubtedly attended hy the
largest number of people ever gathered together at a political meeting in
East Kootenay. When chairman J
O. McCalluui called the meeting to
order every seat in the house was
taken and the hall was packed to the
very doors with those standing,
Dr. J. H. King, the candidate tor
the Cranbrook riding, was the lirst
speaker, and, il one is to judge Irom
the interest with which be was listened to by all present and tlie
frequent bursts of applause, the impression created was that the district had made no mistake in their
selection of the representative three
years ago, and that that selection
would be confirmed at the coming
election by an overwhelming majority. Nearly the entire speech was
confined to local needs and conditions
and the earliest manner of the doctor In dealing with them convinced
all of his sincerity, lie clearly outlined tbe unfair manner iu which the
McBride government had dealt with
this riding, in retaliation lor his
election, and explained that while ho
had used all available means to convince the government of our needs,
the benefits derived had indeed been
paltry when the amount of revenue
the government had received from
the district was considered. He
alluded to the well known tact that
.1. A, Harvey, the Conservative candidate, had long controlled the patronage ol the district, ami that it
we had not received Justin- !.lr.
Harvey was the proper person to
blame lie tht-n explained his position on the smelter bill and explained that when this bill was first
introduced by Mr. H.iwthornthwiute,
that not only was the conditions of
the province unfavorable for its passage but thnt it bad turn sprung
upon tbe members without a
moment's notice a nil Hint no time
other opposition members considered that the bill
should he turned down until an
Intelligent Investigation of Ihe conditions could lie made ami an effort
put forth to bring the smelter owners and employees together on the
subject. This view proved correct,
as immediately, after the adjournment of the legislature, through Mr.
Macdonntd's influence these meetings
were brouglit ahout with the result
that the eight hour dav was put in
force. At the next meeting of the
legislature the bill was again
Introduced, and was heartily endorsed and voted for by Mr. Macdonald
and the majority of the opposition
hut was Wiled on its second reading
through tbe influence of Premier McBride and three members of the cabinet, Messrs. Tat low, Fulton and
Potion. Mr. Kine closed his address
by stating that if elected he would,
In the future as in the past, put
fortb his utmost efforts to obtain
justice for this riding and promised
t-ha-t- if a Liberal government was
returned there would be no doubt of
our obtaining the same.
Mr. Harvey was the next speaker,
and instead of relying on facts tor
an argument resorted to ridicule in a
vain effort to offset the facts advanced by Pr. King. Mr. Harvey
took up lb* allegation that he controlled the patronage of this district
and made a ludicrous attempt to
prove thati if be was to be held responsible for the government tailing
to deal justly hy the Cranbrook riding, he should be given credit for
tbe -benefits that had accrued to our
people without regard to whether the
t^vftrnnent bad been Influential In ob
taining them or not. Mr. Harvey's
sarcasm fell Hat and after a malicious attack upon W. W. B. Mclnnes
for entering this campaign he closed
with an attempt to holster up the
government's attitude in tbe Kaien
island, Midway & Vernon, and Columbia & Western deals, by repeating
a few of the pet phrases enunciated
hy Premier McBride and "thirty-live
dollar!, a month" Bowser, at their
recent meeting here, and which they
repeat at all meetings held by them
without variation.
Mr. Kelly was then called [or but
being absent, S. Macdonald look the
platform in his behalf aud denounced
the Herald ami Or. King for assert-
ing "that Mm people responsible for
Mr. Kelly's candidacy were Socialist," and stated that tbe accusation
was false. Mr. Macdonald also
berated the "red Hag" Socialists and
announced that he was not, in any
manner in .sympathy with their principles and that in his opinion labor
aud capital should go hand in hand.
Mr. W. W. B. Mclnnes was then introduced by the chairman ami for the
next hour ami thirty minutes devoted
his lime to such a powerful and
masterful arraignment of the McBride government that the large
audience was moved to freipient and
prolonged applause. After u brief
and satisfactory explauaUo . of his
reasons for resigning tl^e governorship of the Yukon to enter provincial
politics he Uirncd bis attention to
the claim that McBride saved British
Columbia from bankruptcy, "This is
the most nonsensical trash, British
Columbia has never been and cannot
be bankrupt. How qould it be with
all this wealth of natural resources
and grand opportunities. No; that
band of amateur financiers were taken by tho throat by a bunch of bankets ami frightened into borrowing
$1,000,000 at 5 per cent. Think of
this. Why 1 know fanners ou Vancouver island who can borrow money
for less than this. Then so far from
being in the financial straits that
they pretend, they have not used half
of this sum yet, aud you are paying
interest on this money, though half
of it lies uncalled for. ' So much for
their financial difficulties and the
bungling manner in which the McBride government handled them."
The British Columbia Southern
scandal was next touched on it trenchant terms, Mr. Mclnnes explaining
bow the McBride government has refused to make the railway company
pay Uie taxes it should pay. Had
the government collected those tuxes
it would have been entirely unnecessary to pass the Iniquitous assessment act which increased everyone's
taxes 4*i p. c. on real properly and
Mill per cent, on personal propertv,
whereas a great and r.cb corporation
had been allowed to shirk and dodge
its obligations. The amount that
should have been paid by the railway
company was more than enough to
make ii unnecessary to Increase the
genera, taxation.
The government, declared the
speaker, had been most unbusinesslike and he instanced the tremendous
tracts of very valuable timber in the
northern part of Vancouver Island
which were being given away to
speculators at but a fraction of a
reasonable price—lo speculators and
not to tbe men who would develop
it—to the speculators who bough!
only to sell again at a profit. Millions of dollars worth of timber
bad thus been practically given away.
Mr. Mclnnes said that he believed
that a good business administration
could so handle the resources of the
province that it would soon not be
necessary to levy any taxes.
The matter of "better terms" is a
simple one. Years ago the provinces
entered into a partnership. Now, as
might have been supposed, as the
years have gone bv, il bus been found
that things have hot ran as smoothly as they might, and have from time
to time required adjustment. This
simple matter of a- business adjustment was taken up again a short
time ago, McBride alone, of all the
premiers who gathered, went alone.
Older premiers went with ministers
to assist them. It may he that Me-
Brhte knew that he had no man in
the cabinet fit to take with him.
He did take a newspaper man with
him and he went to send out to the
coast bulletins as to the great hero
McBride was making of himself. One
would have thought that he was reporting a prize fight. No such thing
was going on there. No more dignified body of men ever gathered in
Canada than those who were there nt
that conference. Thev were there to
calmly consider the claims of each
province and fnirlv nword to each
what was fair to each. Now. McBride, either because he did not
under»tand the case he had In hand,
or  because he had no desire to   do-
otlier than raise an election cry,
bungled the whole matter. Then,
when he had found that he could not
run Uie whole show, did he retire in
a dignified manner? Did he act as a
sin teaman should''    No.     Ho rushed
out,      slammed   lhc    (loot   behind bun
and at once began to accuse bis
brother premiers ol having treated
hint unfairly and ol being dishonest
Now, when you think of Ibis, you
must acknowledge thai so long a»
human nature remains as it is, Me*
Iirlde has put himself out oi court
lurever so far as better terms aro
concerned. He has accused the only
tribunal from which better terms
can come, of being dishonest. Ho
can never again appear before them
ami hope for consideration. It will
remain for a Liberal leader like Mr.
Maudouald to go, us premier of British Columbia, lo a new conference of
premiers and there, bv uu able, and
statesmanlike presentation ol the
claims of British Columbia, get what
We are so clearly entitled to.
Referring to the relations existing
between the McBride government and
the C. P. R. and with the government's efforts to divert the attention
of the country Irom that guilty connection, Mr. Mclnnes alluded io the
notorious refusal of the McBride government to tax the C. P. K. East
Kootenay lauds, to say nothing ol
Uie iniquitous grant ol bou.iuju acres
uf land to the C. P. R. in the Columbia & Western grant. In detail the
speaker went into this giant show-
lug that it was not a new matter,
that the road bad been built and
running for years, and that lor nil
these years the C. P. It. bad been
begging and importuning succeeding
governments for the lauds, livery
previous government had refused, bm
instead of forcing the C. P. It. into
the courts to prove its contested
claim to the lauds, the MoBrlde
government deliberately handed the
lauds over. Then be showed how thu
meddling interference of Minister of
Rliaiico Tatlow, had stopped work
on Ihe Midway A- Vermin road, Ihe
only possible explanation being that
the Midway ,v Vernon would he a
competitor of the C. P. It. In the
one case everything had been done
for the C, P. It., iu tbe other nothing
Was done hut lo stop the building of
Ihe railway, and that because it was
not the C. P. It.
At the close of Mr. Mclnnes1 speech
three rousing cheers were given for
King uud the Liberal parly and the
meeting was closed by singing the
National Anthem.
Revel stoke, .Jan. 21.—"The most
successful political meeting ever held
iu Revelsloke," was the verdict of
Liberal and Conservative alike after
the great gathering in the opera
House on Saturday night at which
Liberal leader .1. A. Macdonald was
heard in a masterly elucidation of
his parly's policy and a telling and
iiicotitrovertrble arraignment of the
misdeeds and blunders of the McBridu
administration. Of the meeting held
here by McBride and Bowser a week
ago, local Conservatives have boasted
that it was a success that neither
Maedonald nor any other opposition
speaker could equal. As a matter.
ol fact it was totally eclipsed by the
Macdonald meeting, not only in the
matter of attendance but iu enthusiasm and appreciation of the points
scored in a masterly speech.
The meeting was.presided over by-
Mayor Brown. E. A. Haggen was
the' first speaker and he devoted himself principally to telling criticism of
local matters, showing how shamefully the constituency had been
treated in public works despite wild
promises just prior to the last election aud then Lefeaux, the Socialist
look his turn, making full use of the
chalice to propound lhc usual Socialist propaganda. Candidate Frank
Cayley spoke but shortly, making a
manly and effective appeal for the
votes of his hearers. He was given
i splendid reception. Leader Mac-
■loiiald spoke upward of an hour and
a half during which he was constant
ly interrupted by outbursts of applause us be made point after point
ii his most efieclive style, All the
main issues of the campaign wore
touched upon at more or less length
.Mr. Macdonald spoke very strongly
on the question of irrigation, show
lug bow the government had so completely neglected its plain duty and
had iu fact not even made the mat let
an excuse for its usual promises
until the opposition had come out
witb its clear cut policy.
Mr. Tom Taylor, the Conservative
candidate was on the platform and
was given full opportunity to speak.
He received a very good hearing bul
failed in a labored attempt to
answer Mr. Macdonald's scathing
criticism of McBride and bis government.
Mr. Alex. Henderson, of Vancouver,
cloned the meeting in a characteristic
lighting speech which aroused Uie
greatest enthusiasm. He confidently predicted victory for Cayley, and
was answered Willi cheers. The
meeting has confirmed the confidence
of the Liberal wotkers here who
state now that Cayley'a election is
Moyie, .Jan. 21.—Tbe Far to! block

Ottawa, Jan. 18.—At the opening
ol the house this afternoon, Mr.
Fielding said: "Mr. Speaker, be-
fore you proceed with the orders ol

the house to make a statement as to
lite matter which was mentioned by
the right honorable the prime minister. A tjucstiuu was asked with regard tu the disaster iu Jamaica.
Owing to the breaking ol the cable,
it has been found very dillicult lo

Santiago, Cuba, Jan. 18.—The
steamer Thomas Brookes has arrived
here Irom Kingston with 17 refugees.
They paint a horrible picture ol the
en bast roplie and confirm the reports
id the destruction of the principle
buildings, The pilots do not dare to
enter the harbor owing lo the
changes in the channel. The Macli-
ado cigar factory, in which many
Cubans were at work, crumbled anil
125 ol them were killed.
London, Jan. 18.—A special despatch from Kingston, dated Jan. 17,
says: "The recent earthquake was
more serious than any which had occurred 1 in Jamaica for two hundred
and fifty years. The first shock was
siicweded by 15 or 16 shocks. The
wooden structures stood well but-the
brick houses collapsed wilhin a radius of sin miles. The immunity of
250 years led the Jamaicans to forget that they are within the earthquake /one and they have been building brick houses. But lor this, there
probably would have been no loss of
life. There has been no tidal wave.
The defences at Port Royal were
destroyed and the pallisades broken
through. Black mud is coming to
tho surface. The conduct 0! all
classes is admirable."
That tlie Spokane-International
will be taken over by tlie Canadian
Pacific within the next lew mouths
is the story which gained some circulation in railroad circles yesterday.
While it cannot be divulged, the
source of the report is such that
onsiderable credence is generally
given it. The iuformatiou coiecs
Irom persons iu close touch with the
ahairs of tlie Canadian Pacific uud
having close relations with Canadian
Pacific officials.
It is known that under the traffic
agreement between D. C. Corhili ol
lhc Spokane-International uuid the
Canadian Pacillc officials, covering a
period 0! 40 years, it is stipulated
that no American line can acquire
title to the Spokane-International.
There seems to be some question
whether the Canadian Pacillc can
directly own railways in the United
States. Mr. Corbiu is in Ihe east
and could not he seen regarding the
rumored absorption.
From the same source comes the
iulortiiatiun that the Canadiau Pacillc will within the next two months
upon ail ollice in Spokane, aud that
Joe Carter, now general passenger
agent of the Canadian Pacillc at
Nelson, B. C, is to be placed is
charge 0! the ollice. Carter is one
ol the best known railroad men in
the northwest, and it is argued that
a man of his standing would not be
picked lor the Spokane ollice were it
not that he will be slated tor the
management of the Corbin road, 11 it
is taken over by the Canadian Pacific.
Tbe same informant states that In
British Columbia and in Canadian
Pacillc circles the Corbin road is
known as tbe Canadian Pacillc branch
to Spokane, and ft is generally expected that it will eventually become
a Canadian Pacific property.
Vancouver, Jan. 19.—All seventeen

Late advices Irom New York say
that the Granby company ol the
Boundary, B. C, has during 1906
earned approximately $2,130,780 net,
or $15 on each new share, par value
Mini. During tlie year lour dividends
ol 3 per cent, each were declared,
calling lor the payment ol 11,620,000
leaving $510,780 either for new construction or to be added to the surplus account. Net surplus on June
.10, 11106, was $2,547,738.
The company's output in the 13
months just ended was 111,7711,0110
pounds ol copper, for which an aver-
!age price of about 19,278 cents was
received, comparing with a production in the fiscal year ended June 30,
1908, ol 1(1,939,004 pounds, sold at an
average of 17.78 cents per pound.
A. B. W. Hodges, the company's
general manager, speaking of the
furnace equipment, says;
"We have eight blast furnaces, and
two ot them are large ones. We
have three of the six small furnaces
now enlarged and hope to have the
other three enlarged some time in
February, which will make our daily
capacity anywhere Irom 3900 to 3300
Ions, or about 1,000,000 a year,
which will give us a copper production ol Irom 25,000,000 to 30,000,000
pounds a year.
"We also have increased our converter plant by another converter
stand, having three now, and it gives
us a converter capacity ol 30,000,000
to 35,000,(100 pounds a year."
(Nelson News.)
When Premier McRride introduced
into tlie legislature his remarkable
hill lor the "relief of Dewdney," an
emphatic protest against the injustice
threatened ratepayers throughout the
province was promptly entered by
the Liberal opposition. But the
measure was carried through the
house in spite of every effort made
by J. A. Macdonald anii'liis supporters to procure its defeat. It is
noteworthy at the present juncture
that it has never received very
hearty support Trom the Conservative
press, either at the time ol its
enactment as law, or since it has become one of the issues of the present
campaign. The silence prevailing 011
this point is signilicatil, lor it is as
direct an admission of condemnation
as could well be expected from parly
The whole principle ol the measure
was indefensible. Dewdney, in its
corporate days, at the request ol lhc
owners of low lands, borrowed a
large sum ol money lor dyking purposes, with the explicit understanding that the owners whose lands
were improved should be specially assessed until the whole amount of the
obligation, principle and interest,
was repaid. Shortly allerwanls
Dewdney defaulted. The ratepayers
refused to elect councillors, aud the
municipality was thus left for years
without a responsible head. As
payments on the loan were not met,
the interest rapidly mounted up until the whole sum owed hy the municipality on this score alone reached a
total of $30,1100.
Then the creditors, unable to deal
with a council that did not exist,
went to the government iu the hope
ot inducing it to assume that debt,
and pay them their money. The government consented, much to their
surprise, and equally to their delight.
Hut, in planning a solution of the
difficulty (a solution which was alter-
wards given legislative effect in tlie
Dewdney relicl bill) It struck at one
of the first principles of administrative justice, namely, that people who
have no part, cither directly or indirectly, In contracting a liability
should not be taxed for its liquidation. The government compounded
with the creditors for $25,000, paying $10,000 out nf the public treasury arid arranging to raise the
balance by a special assessment on
all lands in Dewdney, whether improved, or unimproved, by the dyking operations.
On the surface, this settlement does
not seem such a had one. and no
casual critic would find fault with
any of its features save that breach
in Hie principle of justice named
above. But there is a darker side
to the stnrv which has yet lo he
told. The men who profited bv this
transaction were, first, the creditors
of Dewdney municipalltv; and second,
the owners of the low land reclaimed and Improved bv the dykes. Had
the latter been struggling farmers,
the government would have deserved
credit for going to their assistance
at the expense ot the general public
But they were not struggling farmers. For the most part, thev were
speculators, whose holdings had been
increased In value from tl per acre
to from $50 to $190 per acre. Thev
had profited in large measure bv the
eons! ruction ot the dvkes, and were
well able to meet the llahllllv which
they themselves had contracted. But,
they had sufficient influence with
Premier    McBride to induce him    to

I Boys, when you speak ol your

better, your hat has a modern shape
and your hair is combed differently,
in short "flyer" than you were then.
Your lather has- a last year's coat,
a two-year-old hat and a vest ot still
older pattern. He can't write such
an elegant note as you can and all
that, but don't ,call him "the old

Dottoghue, Dominion [ail wage ol-
licet, died at his home tills morning
as a rciull ol illness contracted at
ferine. II. C, while there in connection with the strike.
D. J. O'Donpghue was one ol the
most active and able men associated
with the labor movement ol Canada.
His name is a good indication ol the
nationality he belonged to, nnd he
was never backward in asserting his
pride in and patriotism towards his
birlhlattil. He was born in the
County of Kerry, August, 1844, and
when not more than eight years ol
age emigrated to Canada with his
parents, and settled at By town, now
Ottawa. At twelve years he found
himself at the head oi a family ol
mother, brother and two sisters,
having the misfortune to lose hy
death his father. Alter some harsh
experiences as a bread winner, he
apprenticed bimsclt to the printing
business. His active temperament
found employment in spare inonicnVs
in St. Patrick's Literary society. 11 s
self-education was not purely ol u
mental character, athletic sports,
especially Ihe use ul the gloves, were
not neglected.
Receiving the nomination of the
working people, he was elected to
represent Ottawa in lhc legislature,
in 1874, and at tho general election
ul 1875 was again elected. In 18711,
lie was offered, hut declined, nomination by both parlies, and was dcleiit-
od. While in the legislature Mr.
O'Donogliitc was an unswerving supporter ol labor legislation, such as
Ihe Mechanics' Lien Act, Master ami
Servant' Act, an act exempting $35
of workman's wages Irom garnishee,
and others, lie was seconder uf the
lirst resolution ever offered In that
body on manhood suffrage, at elections, a proposal which lie has lived
lo see an accomplished reality. Owing largely to his trades union
principles, the Irmlt of his employment became verv circumscribed, ami
the spring of 18811 found him working
in Toronto, with which city he has
since bren associated. Here he became attached to the Knights ol
Labor movement, and lhc trades
council, and was secretary to the
legislative committee of that body,

separation will be effected -without
publicity. This was largely brought
about through the. intervention of
royalty, which is desirious ol averting public proceedings involving the
.indent ducal house. The following
is believed to embody the most    e
ential features of the arrangement:
Through the intervention of the
Marquis ot Lansdowne, the duke's
uncle, tlie duchess has been induced
to take a position favorable to an
adjustment. The duki- and duchess
will live apart, the duke retaining
Blenheim palace and continuing to
enjoy the 1100,(100 a year settled
upon him hy the duchess' family,
with the custody of their two sons
for six months each year, the control of their education until they become of age and the choice ol their

The story ot a misplaced mustard
plaster and tile consequently losing
ol a goodly portion of cuticle by a
well known knight ol the grip,     as
told    by   Conductor     ul th,-
North Coast Limited, is well worth
retelling and is also illustrative ui
the uld saying that "A woman away

The story, which is vouched lur, is
that a very dignified and rotlited appearing lady and her husband wore
occupants uf the sleeper on the North
Coast   Limited   on a    trip hotw i
Butte and this city, a lew days ago
in common with a number ol traveling ,'llleli.
During the early part uf the lilglil
the lady in question was compelled
to arise and administer t„ her husband who was Buffering with intense
pain. She sought the aid ul the
conductor ami with cloth Irom the
trains medicine chest and niusiaid
furnished by the chel ol the diner
was able to concoct a powerful
mustard plaster.
Armed witli this powerful pain killer she made tier way back to the
sleeper and placed the plaster on lite
hack ol, as she supposed, her husband, who, it appeared, bad dropped
into a sound slumber. She then
sought the ladies' dressing room to
remove all vcstagis ol the plaster
from her bands.
When she returned to her berth
(lor she found the right one this
innel Iter husband Inquired, amid
groans ul pail,, -.is to the wlicn-aljoiiu
ul tire plaster. She replied that she
had already applied it tu the ailing
port ion o[ his anatomy ami with a
woman's persistence succeeded iu
persuading him that what she said
was so and the alliictcil man dropped
oil to sleep.
In the early hours of Ihe next
morning the occupant of the next
berth awoke with a smarting pain
on the back, investigated and found
that he bad acquired a mustard I
plaster but had lost a considerable
amount 1,1 cuticle. With sounds ol
mullleil rage he dressed and made tho
rounds nl lire car in a vain attempt
to (mil which otic ol bis Icllow drummers had perpetrated tin- practical

To judge properly ol a candidate,

one must size up his dealings with

man ns we have known him in years
past. It is impossible for any one
to jump into ihe arena and in u few
short weeks Iool the electorate.
Every candidate must stand on the

his fellow men. The laboring man
in this district is not a fool. Tho

They know thai campaigns made
no difference in his treatment of the

rich nnd the poor have always been

They know that in Dr. King the poor
man, tbe laboring man, the well-to-
do man, were all treated alike when
ihey came to bim. That is why the
doctor has the sympathy, the con-
lidenoe and the support ol the grcal
masses in this district, and that is
why, coupled with his ability and h s
intense desire to advance the best Interests of the people of tills district.

Dear "Old Man" Simpson:—
I am just sending you a line to let
you know that I am still on the
earths crust. Ross Carr and myself arrived at Frisco on third ol
December, 1906. and alter some
little difficulty we got diggings and
settled down to see Frisco. The
city was an awlul sight at that
time, the skeletons of most of the
buildings were still standing and
were a menace to pedestrians day and)
night, until the morning of December
10, 1900, when the city encountered
a terrible storm of wind and rain,
when many workmen were killed and
injured. The board of works then
took the matter in band and pulled
down, or caused to Ik* pulled down,
the remaining walls which were dan-
generous to the public. At about 10

In spite of the fact that the lack

has curtailed the output ot the
Frank mine at least 300 tons per
day, still it Is maintaining an output of over fiOft tons. The new

I too tons per day, is giving the best
of satisfaction. This property now
gives employment to over 200 men,
which will he increased as soon as

The Colonist cannot underst a nd
why the Grand Trunk Pacific people
should have conducted their negotiations with the government for the
acquirement ut Kaien Island through
intermediaries; but it intimates that
that is ol no concern to the public
il the bargain was a good one iu the
interests ot the country. That is a
very convenient way ot disposing ol
a very disagreeable, not to say unsavory, matter. It is the only attempt we have ever heard made lo
explain why the Andersons and Lar-
sen were commissioned by. tlie Me-
Bride government lo convey the harbor and tow unite ol Prince Uupert lu
the railway company at a profit lo
themselves uf thirty thousand dollars, a profit which would have been
much larger if the Grand Trunk Pacific officials had been so easy to work
as the government was.
The assertion that the Grand Truulj
Pacific Kailway company preferred to
conduct their business through Intermediaries is intended to create Ihe
impression that Anderson *v L'o, approached the transcontinental railway)
and were commissioned by the olli
cials ol that company to acquire the
terminus for them. This is an insinuation, we are sure, that Messrs.
Hays and .Morse will consider anything but complimentary. Whether
ihe Andersons lirst secured the property and then offered it to the railway company, or whether the Andersons managed to convince the railway company that, they had strong
connections and could exact special
treatment from the government, does
not matter a great deal. The important fact Irom the public point of
view is that the Andersons uud Larson were the principals of the transaction. They acquired the land Irom
the government, the government by
suppressing all outside knowledge of
the order iu council for a year or
two, until such time as the notorious
syndicate had staked most of the pub-!
lie land adjacent to the port at
which they knew the terminus would
be, proved in the most practical milliner probable that when the Andersons claimed they hail a control of
the strings which would secure thorn
preferential treatment they were
making no vain boast.
Through the government, which has
now assumed full responsibility tor
the  Kaien  island     affair—and ' which
has admitted is indefensible bv
thrusting away the principal actor iu
the deal—cannot explain why the
terminus was transferred to the
Grand Trunk Pacillc through two
such peculiar intermediaries, the public in genera! has had a fairly shrewd-
idea in regard to all that, has been
going on in the Lands and Works department since the late commissioner assumed control of it. Mr. Green
has probably been taught a very
valuable lesson by his experience.
Hut although one ol the transgressors lias been punished In the only
manner possible, it will not relieve
the others of their responsibility to
say that while the business was conducted in a manner that cannot be
defended, the province has not suffered at all, that although the price
for the land and the waterfront was
low, it must be remembered that the
government reserved one-fourth of all
the property for the benefit of the
public. The government did nothing
of the kind. Tlie reserve was made
by statute of the legislature. The
government could not have given
away the portion of the property reserved by statute to the people if it
had tried: as it would assuredly have
done if its hands hair not been tied.
Its care lor the Interests ol the
people was shown by the manner in
which the water frontage was disposed ot. Premier McBride points
triumphantly to the provision iu the
instruments' of transfer which says
that the length of the water front
blocks shall not he "less" than one
thousand feet as proof of the transcendent wisdom of the government.
The blocks may be made from one to
five thousand feet in length under
this provision, but it was the evident
intention to convey the impression
on the mind of the premier that under it the blocks would have to be one
thousand feet or less, and that therefore the province would have ample
opportunity for the selection ol its
In whatever light this Kaien island
deal is regarded, whether we look at
the peculiar manner of its transfer
or at the peculiar agency through
wlilcrh it was transferred; whether
we consider the terms upon which
it was conveyed to the band by the
government or the terms upon which
the hand conveyed it to the railway
company, the transaction hears the
clear impress or crookedness, dishonesty and intrigue. It is absolutely indefensible, antl no man or
newspaper imbued bv the desire to
uphold only that which Is of good report in connection with government
Will attempt to defend it. We cannot expect the ministers upon whom
the responsibility for this crime
against the people must rest to acknowledge that It was an unclean
transaction; hut if thev are wise, and
their organ has nnv particular desire
to see them placed in the smallest,
possible minority when the new
house meets, they will avoid the
subject of Kaien island ns much as
