It comes about this way: The government is reconstructing a dam on tinned river beluw Winnipeg to make <**

Lake Winnipeg. The department ar
ranged to pay this consulting engineer
for the plans 5 per cent, on the esti

Here are lhe Statements of minister.,
and their supporters of (he cost of tin
Winnipeg to Moncton section:
Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier   about. .$60,000,000
Mr.  Fielding     51,300,000
Mr.  Charlton    r.-i.r.ini.	
Mr.  Hughes, P.  D. 1   63,000,000
Mr.  Heyd    61,000,000

Mr.  Arch. Campbell      M.TSO.OOn
Mr.   Roche.   Halifax      66,360,000
Government   engineer     5.3,000,00,.
The Conservative members' estimates
were nearer the truth, but mosUy too
low. Mr. Blair, who opposed tile measure, did not believe the road could lie
built for $96,000,000 (page S4r.��H. Then
we have the following estimates of the
minimum cost:
Mr.   Haggart    JlilX.i.iHi.i	
Dr.   Sproule    .t.  135,000,000
Mr.   Lennox        88,000,000

Mr.   Vrooman        93,760,000
M r.   Prlngle        90,000,000
to       100,000,000
Mr. Horden did not make an exact
estimate, but asserted t^jCI lhe cost-
would certainly exceed $7.r��.ooh,oo0. Mr
Tarte, who did not BUpport  the scheme.
made an .intimate of $76,000,000 In the
1903 debate, but raised It  to $96,000,000
the nt'xt year,
Mr,   Fielding,   (Hansard,   loot,   page
3686) redlcub'd Mr. HoVilen's estimate
of 175,000,000 and oilier similar or higher Calculations, which, h(9 declared, were
absurd and unreasonable. He produced
calculations from the governmenl engineer to support his own estimate, now
proved alao on the authority of govern
ment engineers to be Just about half
the OOSt of the road.
Sir Wilfrid now explains that when
in- gave $13,000,000 as the full coat of
the whole road he meant lhat this would
cover tlie amount not charged to the
company Then Mr. Kleiding reduced
this burden below $-].i,000,000 and even
produced a caio lation to show that $S,-
000,000 or $tt,U0u.0OU would be tin; present vulue *of the nalional contribution.
Let UK see how it ��lauds on the present
liy ibe time tbe Moncton lo Winnipeg
line is completed tlie government will
have paid interest at least equal to
three years on tlie total cost, at not less
than three am] a hall per cent. This
Is $12,000,000. This, added to the $114,-
ooo.ooo. makes $120,000,000 charged
against the company. The government
paya seven fear's interest on this from
the time the road is handed over. That
is $::o.870,000. Add the cost, of the
Quebec bridge, say $12,000,000, and we
bave tlie present estimated burden applicable to the eastern section atone.
Hut the government is also to pay interest on tlie guaranteed bonds on the
mountain section during construction
and for seven years after completion.
It Is now announced that this section
will cost $40,000,000, calling for $80,-
000,000 of guaranteed bonds on which
the government will pay threi per cent,
interest for seven yenrs, or $(>,.i00,000.
\\V have thus a total contribution of
$49,170,000, supposing the company fulfills all its obligations, and the present
estimates are not exceeded, both doubtful  considerations.
The actual liability for expenditure
and guarantees will probably be not
less than $200.^ 00,000.
A special committee of the commons
will begin inquiry Into the charge that
the governmert commission is "padding" tlie accounts of contractors on
the National Transcontinental railway.
This is not a Conservative or opposition
charge. It is made hy a former district
engineer of the railway, who has been
discharged in consequence of his alleged
refusal to carry out the orders of ma
superiors. Sir Wilfrid himself proposed
the reference to a committee. The
charge was made so explicitly that It
could not be ignored.
Mr. Foster, M. P., tells of a tailor in
his county who wa: appointed by the
Laurier government to inspect con-
striicllon on an armoury, the contract
price of which was $4,700. The tailor
neglected to report that the work was
done aud so went on drawing his pay
for a year or two. receiving for inspec
tion 40 per cent, of the contract  price.
A similar eM is now reported from
Antteonlsh, where $1,900 has already
been paid for Inspecting the public
building under construction there. The
inspector's pay is $;l per day, and has
heen going on for nearly two yeajs. It
is found lhat the inspector was paiil
$1,096 for one year, so that he drew his
%:. for every holiday and every Sunday.

No. 2 Company mustered 54 strong
tor Inspection last night by Col. Holmes,
I) O. C. All the Officers were examined
in their skill in handling the company
and in their knowledge of drill, and
the sergeanls in handling sections.
The marching and manoeuvring were
highly praised by the inspecting officer,
but the manual exercises were not up
to the mark. For this, however, there
was a good reason. The rifles were In
Victoria for two months undergoing
modifications and during lhe week sinre
they were returned there had been ne
light for exercises. Consequent!y the
new recruits were unfamiliar wilh the
weapons. In the circumstances the par-
turmanee  was not. discreditable.
After a very thorough inspection aral
exercise, including a test of the etliei
ency of the signallers. Col. Holmes addressed the men in his usual happy
way, complimenting them on their
soldierly appearance, praising their
work, where it deserved praise, and
pointing out deficiencies that he hoped
tu see remedied.

102nd regiment of which they nre to

There will be a field-day In Nelson

Vision    of   an    Undivided    Church���An
Unfilled    Prophecy���Church
Services Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the -second Sunday
after KaHh-r. The kohjioI for tlie day
l�� St. John'H report of ChrlHt'B parable
of the alieep und the good .shepherd,
Uie condemnation of the hireling,
"whose own the isheep are not," the
type ol mercenary who lights or works
for pay, not for love or loyalty to a
The most significant words containing a prophecy not yet fuliilled, are:
���Other sheep I have which are not of
thin fold; them alao I must bring and
they shall heur my voice; and there shall
be one fold, and one shepherd."
That consummation still seems far
away. Since the semi-religious, semi-political cataclysm which rent the Church
Catholic early in the lttth century, divisions have multiplied until no one now
can name all the sects and their varying creeds. Of course there were divisions long before what la called the
Ileli'iination, even before the division
that parted Greece and Home, but the
last three centuries have multiplied
them a thousand fold, even Oriental
OCCUlUstt) being summoned to differentiate   new   beliefs   and   practices.
Uut it is doubtful if ever before there
has been a more intense and more general longing for unity or a franker recognition of the evil as well an tbe
danger of division Ihan there is at present, and It is to the honor of Canadian
Christiana that the Bret hopeful move
towards reunion hus been made In lite
Dominion, It Is too much to hope for
great immediate results, but the spirit
of harmony will grow stronger, and
fuller light of knowledge will gradually
i educe many present causes of disunion to lheir proper proportions. The
threefold demand of St. Augustine
should be steadily kept in view: "in
essential* unity. In non-essentials liberty, in all things charity." Christians
may not doubt that there will be 'one
fold aud  One Shepherd."
