SHIPS   IN   COLLISION.
LE THE COST
Grand Trunk Pacific
Exceeds Estimates
ENORMOUS EXPENSES
Of Construction Increased by Faulty
Engineering and Choice of
Yellow Head Pass.
Ottawa, Feb. 12.���When parliament
met In November Mr. Fielding made the
statement that his tariff bill was ready
ond would be passed through itn various stages before Christmas. We are
now at thp end of January and the
sceduie is Just through discussion in
committee. At least a hundred items
have been wilheld by the minister for
further revision, and it is pretty certain that at this moment he docs not
know what the the tarirf will be on at
leaBt half that number of important
classes of articles.
lt may be said further that only one
volume of the three comprising the
auditor-general's report for thc year
ending last June Is ready. For two
months and more the public accounts
committee has been waiting for this
and for returns asked for and not yet
produced. Consequently that committee,
whose business it ls to enquire Into
expenditure, and which last year exposed many scandals, has not been able
to get to work.
Little ny little Information comes out
showing that the cost of the national
transcontinental will cost at least
double the amount estimated by the gov-
eminent when the contract waa made.
The first revelation made when the construction contracts were signed al
schedule price, estimated by the engineer at over 160,000 per mile. It now
appears that the quantity of excavation
ls larger than was estimated and the
cost will be Increased accordingly.
Moreover, the price of ties and rails Ib
higher than was expected. Bo, whereas
Mr. Fielding placed the cost of the
railway between Quebec and Winnipeg
at 128.000 per mile with the extreme
possibilities of {40,000, It is shown that
the road bed alone on the parts under
contract which are those moBt accessible, will be between $50,000 and |00,-
000, to which must he added the cost of
ties, rails, tracking, station buildings,
tanks, workshops, etc.
Again tt has been brought out by
Senator Ferguson that the Rocky Mountain section, estimated at JB0.0OO per
mile, is likely to cost $100,000. The still
more striking fact has come to light
that the adoption of the Yellow Head
Pass route adds some four hundred
miles to the costly mountain section,
reducing the prairie section on which
construction is easy and cheap.
Ing hud, increased the cost by at least
$150.
The report of the committee was
adopted
The Fire, Water and Light committee
reixirtad au follows:
1���That the lighting syBtem of the
city be Improved by placing clusters
of (candescent llghtB as follows: 4 on
Front street, 1 on Lake. I on Silica, 1
on Latimer.. :'. on Hoover, 1 on Robson,
3 on Gore. :: on lnnes and 2 on Houston:
and also tlie lighting of Baker street
from Kooteuay street lo the C. P. R.
depot.
2���That meters be placed for customer!* In store and offices on request.
3���Tha' the ringing of the hours by
the fire iieiiartment be discontinued except for the curfew bell.
4���That 500 feet of hose be purchased
for the fire department.
5���That 200 feet of hose be turned
over to the water department for use-
In flushing sewers.
On motion of Alderman Selous the
report was taken up clause by clause.
He then explained that the additions
recommended involved placing lights on
practically even* comer, and lighting
Haker street down to the C. P. R. depot. The object of clause 3, he explained, was to keep the flre"hall bell
for fire purposes only.
The rs*|sort in full was adopted.
The city engineer reported having examined the C. P. R. -sewer, and recommended lhat il be continued to deep
water.
He also reported on the two main city
sewerB, at the foot of Stanley and Cedar
streets, the former of which he recommended be continued to deep water.
The city engineer stated that the sep
tic tank system is much ln favor, but
not essential to sanitation where sewage can issue into running water.
He admitted in reply to Alderman
Selous. that a septic tank at the mouth
of the C. P. R. sewer might be overflowed during high water.
Both reports were referred to the
board of works.
A letter from the Canada Zinc Co.,
asking for the continuation of the city
water system eastward from the city
limits, was referred to the Flr.e Water
and Light committee.
The estimates of the board of school
trustees, already published ln The Dally
Canadian, were referred to the Finance
committee.
Chief Deasy's estimate of $6578 for
the fire department was referred to the
Finance committee.. The chief also reported several minor matters affecting
the internal discipline of the force.
T. Week"s resignation of the super-
lntendency of the tramway system was
accepted.
A request from the driver or the fire
team for an increase of salary waB refused.
Duncan McCulag was appointed caretaker of the cemetery in piace of Alexander Allan whose resignation was presented.
City Clerk Wasson reported taxes in
arrears, $7385; licenses, $1385: light,
$1500; water. $4600.. It was referred
to Ihe finance committee.
Alderman McMorris' question as to
tramway extension up Stanley street
was referred to the finance committee.
It was agreed that an effort should lie
made to have the estimates brought
down early this year. The council then
adjourned to February 26th.

Winnipeg Fruit Land Investors Explore
the West,
The Winnipeg Free Press of a recent
dale reports an Interview with several
prominent citizens of the prairie capital who have Just returned from an exploratory tour of British Columbia, lt
says: "A. E. Shantz and J. W. Lone
arrived In Ihe city early Sunday morning from a prolonged tour ln British
Columbia. They left for the west on
December 14, spent a few days in Calgary, Christmas In Vancouver, and New
Year's in Victoria. They were impressed
wllh Vancouver as a very busy city,
just starting to wake up. The weather
was quite cold during their stay. In
Victoria on New Years day they Baw
flowers of all kinds in bloom and holly,
trees and grass perfectly green. Victoria, these travellers say, is destined
to be a large residential city though not
so great a business centre as Vancouver.
A great many houses are built on the
rock, cellars not being required, as
garen stuff Is left out all winter.
On Jan. 6. Measers. Shantz and Lone
went down to the Okanagan to Vernon
where they spent a couple of days. They
visited Peachland, Summerland and
Pentlcton with varied experiences and
sensations when tliey returned to Slca-
mous.
From Sicamous the tourists went to
Nelson, which Ib a prosperous business
c'ty, with very good land around lt.
They formed the opinion that In the
Kootenay district a fruit farm can he
s -oiired with less money than In the
Okanagan. the land being -cheaper and
not requiring irrigation. It ll beeides
a couple of days nearer to the western
market.

gathered within the precincts of parliament to witness the arrival of dis
tinguished  personages.
London, Feb. 12.���The second session
of the second parliament of his reign

Mr. Justice Clements Congratulated by
Nelson Bar���Action for Damage
to Employee,
The court sittings of lhe supreme
court opened In the court house thiB
morning at 11 o'clock, with Mr. Justice
Clements on the bench. On behalf of
the bar W. A. Macdonald, K. C, congratulated his lordship on his election
and expressed -the hope that he might
long enjoy the honor, and dignity of his
position. His lordship in reply thanked
the bar for kindly wishes and hoped that
In his new sphere the harmonious rein
Hon with the bar that he had enjoyed
fn a narrower jurisdiction might be continued.
The cuse of Sijow vs. Crow's X*-*st

W. A. Macdonald, K. 0- and J. P.
Myers Gray appeared for the plaintiff,
and S. S. Taylor, K. C, and H. W.
Herchmer for the defendant company.
Mr. Macdonald opened to the jury.
The plaintiff was an employee of the
defendant company. While at work on
dump No. 1, he was struck by a car and
thrown niue and one half feet, and
against the cog gear of dump No. 2. iu
which his hand and arm were caught,
receiving injuries that necessitated amputation. It was submitted that the defendant company was guilty of negligence in not have guard rails on the
track and around tne cog gear. Dam-
ages were claimed In the sum of$7fs00.
Henry Snow, the plaintiff, was the
first witness.. He told the story of the
accident and Its results. His cross-ex-
aniiiiation was then begun by S. S. Taylor, K. C.
As the facts are hardly disputed and
the chief issue is one of legal liability,
the taking of eveidence will probably
not last long.

Ottawa, Feb. 12.~The debate on tls��
Dobbins Irrigation Co. was resumed ,1
the house. Among those who took pa it
in the discussion when it was up last, wif*
Dr. Mclntyre (Strathcona), who polntc I
out lhat eastern members who were di.��
cussing the matter were not familiaf
with the question of Irrigation as wci-J
those from the West.
Mr. Lake (Qu'Appelle), was the -tint
speaker yesterday. He gave a brli t
history of the compact with the Gran 1
Forks Co. and stated that' about J800..
000 had been paid to the promoters hi-
tween the time the Grand Forks owner,
and the Southern Alberta Co. got con*
trol. The complaint of the opposition
seems to be that the English Investors
paid too much for that bargain. Hft
favored public ownership more than prt*
vate enterprise for irrigation. " **���
Mr. McPherson (Vancouver), in reply,
said that what had made the United
States was individual effort with the
government's assistance. The people
could not do anything. The opposition
complained that some parties had made
money by inducing cnpltulUts to Irrigate land that hud been lying waste for
20 years.
Mr. Carvel! iCareltnn), made a careful review of the whole tsaustlon. show-
Ins that the government had nothing
to do with the issuing of the prospectus
In London, which gave such a glowing
picture of the lands'-. Wns it a erimo
foi- a eumpany to buy lauds? Was It a
crime for a company to buy lauds and
sell them for more than is paid? He
would like to ask the member for East
Slmcoe	
Mr. Bennett immediately interrupt
and said that If Mr. Carvell had any
charge to make he should do so now,
and he would get his answer.
Mr. Carvell���The member for East
Slmcoe should not be so impatient. He
must not get too anxious because before the session is over he will hear
more of Northwest lands than he desires.
After dinner Mr. Borden continued hla
financial analysis, showing that the
the prices which the company expected
to get were tbee times as much as land
should cost when irrigated, had there
been no middle profit. He dwelt on the
fact that for this particular deal the
government abrogated the usual restriction that the price to the settler
should not be higher Ihan Jii. For this
deal ulso the government omitted to put
In a condition fixing the maximum
price at which the company should sell
water grantesl to It in the concession.
The minister of tlie Interior had professed to show, a difference between
this concession and other irrigation
grants. He had been'-so unfair as not
to mention the essential and Important
difference that the Hitchcock-McGregor
grant left Ihe lesse free to charge what
he liked for land and water. Reclamation work of this character In the United Stales was adding $800,000,000
worth of arable lands to the public -domain.. Had the new Canadian system
been followed this would become the
property of government faVoritee, and
800,000.000 acres would have been alienated. Instead .this land would be made
Into settlers' holdings for high-class Ullage. Mr. Horden said that he not much
care whether Irrigation ln the Canada
dry belt was conducted by the government or by private parties, but It should
he so carried out lhat reclaimed land
sliould go to the settlers at a moderate
profit over the cost of reclaiming It.

The regular monthly meeting of the

chairman of the general and university
committees promised definite reports
from both at ihe March meeting, and
announced a paper for that evening by
\V. J. Haird, which Mr. [laird later announced would be on the subject of
"Party Government." The paper on
"Ethics and Politics," by Rev. F. H.
Graham, proved both entertaining and
thought provoking. The author charged
that in British Columbia ethics and politics are absolutely divorced and illustrated his argument hy references to
thc recent political campaign. Nearly
all present took part in an animated
discussion that followed, the most important contribution, perhaps, being
Rev. J. T. Ferguson's complaint as to
the prevalent cynicism on the subject
of political corruption.

DOUBLEM COST
Grand Trunk Pacific
Exceeds Estimates
ENORMOUS EXPENSES
Of Construction Increased by Faulty
Engineering and Choice of
Yellow Head Pass.
Ottawa, Feb. 12���When parliament
met In November Mr. Fielding made the
statement that his tariff bill was ready
and would be passed through Its various stages before Christmas. We are
now at the end of January and the
scedulc Is Just through discussion in
committee. At least a hundred Items
have been witheid by the minister for
further revision, and It is pretty certain thai at this moment he does not
know what the the tariff will be on at
least hair that number of Important
classes of articles.
It may be said further that only one
volume of the three comprising the
auditor-general's report for tho year
ending last June Is ready. For two
months and more the public accounts
committee has been waiting for this
and for returns asked tor and not yet
produced. Consequently that committee,
whose business it is to enquire into
expenditure, and which last year exposed many scandals, has not been able
to get to work.
Little by little information comes out
showing that the cost of the national
transcontinental will cost at least
double the amount estimated by the government when the contract was made.
Tbe first revelation made when the construction contracts were signed al
schedule price, estimated by tbe engineer at over 160,000 per mile. It now
appears that tbe quantity of excavation
ls larger than was estimated and the
cost will be increased accordingly.
Moreover, the price of ties and rails ls
higher than was expected. So, whereas
Mr. Fielding placed the cost of the
railway between Quebec and Winnipeg
at $28,000 per mile with the extreme
possibilities of $40,000, It is shown that
the road bed alone on the parts under
contract which are those most accessible, will be between $50,000 and $C0,-
000, to which must be added the cost of
ties, rails, tracking, station buildings,
tanks, workshops, etc.
Again it has been brought out by-
Senator Ferguson that the Rocky Mountain section, estimated at $50,000 per
mllo, is likely to cost $100,000. The still
more striking fact has come to light
that the adoption of the Yellow Head
Pass route adds some four hundred
miles to the costly mountain section,
reducing the prairie Bectlon on which
construction Is easy and chenp.

FINANCES  DISCUSSED
City   Council   Consider   Estimates   of
Many     Departments ��� Lighting
Will be  Improved.
Last night's meeting of the city council was largely taken with financial affairs, estimates from many departments
being presented. Tho complete estimates for all city expenditure will be
prepared earlier than hns been usual in
the last few years.
An important list ot recommendations from the fire, water and light committee was adopted. The principal one
presented a scheme for Improving the
street lighting syalem by many additions.
The council met shortly after 8, with
Mayor Gillett in the chair, and Aldermen Hume Selous, Annable, McMorris,
Irving and Rose present. The minutes
of the last meeting were read and
adopted. The finance committee reported, recommending three pay tolls,
In connection wltb the moving of thc
court house, tramway, moving of pavilion, and scavenging departments.
The removal of the court house has
so far cost $774.. The mayor estimated
lhat the final cost will amount to $100
moro. A small pnrt of the cost will be
met by appliances purchased and on
band. The mayor stated that tha severity of the weather during the mov
ing had, increased tbe cost by at least
$1G0.
Tbe report of the committee was
adopted.
The Fire, Water and Light committee
reported as follows:
1���That tbe lighting system of the
city be improved by placing clusters
of icandesoent lights as follows: 4 on
Front street, 1 on Lake, 1 on Silica, 1
on Latimer., 3 on Hoover, 1 on Robson,
3 on Gore, !S on lnnes and 2 on Houston;
and also tbe lighting of Baker street
from Kootenay street to the C. P. R.
depot.
2���That meters be placed for customers in store and offices on request.
3���That the ringing of the houro by
the fire iiepartment be discontinued except for the curfew bell.
4���That 500 feet of hose be purchased
for the fire department.
5���That 200 feet of hose be turned
over to the water department for use
In flushing sewers.
On motion of Alderman Selous the
report was taken up clause by clause.
He then explained that the additions
recommended involved placing lights on
practically every corner, and lighting
Baker street down to the C. P R. depot. The object of clause 3, he explained, was to keep the fire-hall bell
lor fire purposes only.
The report In full was adopted.
The city engineer reported having examined Ihe C. P. R. sewer, and recommended that it be continued to deep
water.
He also reported on the two main city
sewers, at the foot of Stanley and Cedar
streets, the former of which he recommended be continued to deep water.
The city engineer stated that the septic lank system Is much In favor, but
not essential to sanitation where sewage can issue Into running water.
He admitted in reply to Alderman
Selous, tbat a septic lank at the mouth
of the C. P. R. sewer might be overflowed during high water.
Both reports were referred to the
board of works.
A letter from the Canada Zinc Co.,
asking for the -continuation of the city
water system eastward from the city
limits, was referred to the Pir,e Water
and Light committee.
The estimates of the board ot achool
trustees, already published In The Dally
Canadian, were referred to the Finance
committee.
Chief Deasy's estimate of $6578 for
the tire department was referred to the
Finance committee.. The chief also reported several minor matters affecting
the internal discipline of the force.
T. Week "s resignation of the super-
intendency of the tramway system was
accepted.
A request from the driver ot the fire
team for an Increase of salary waa refused.
Duncan McCuiag was appointed caretaker of the cemetery In place ot Alexander Allan whose resignation was presented.
City Clerk Wasson reported taxes In
arrears, $7385; HcenseB. $1385: light,
$1500; water, $4500.. It was referred
to tbe finance committee.
Alderman McMorris' question as to
tramway extension up Stanley street
waB referred lo the finance committee.
It was agreed that an effort should be
made to have the estimates brought
down early this year. The council then
adjourned to February 26tb.
IN FAVOR OF KOOTENAY.
Winnipeg Fruit Land Investors Explore
the West,
The Winnipeg Free Press of a recent
dnte reports an Interview with several
prominent citizens of the prairie capital who have Just returned from an exploratory tour of British Columbia. II
says: "A. E. Shantz and J. W. Lone
arrived In the city early Sunday morning from a prolonged tour in British
Columbia. They left for the west on
December 14, spent a few days ln Calgary, Christmas In Vancouver, and New
Year's In Victoria. They were Impressed
with Vancouver as a very busy city.
Just starting to wake up. The weather
was quite cold during tbelr stay. In
Victoria on New Years day they saw
flowers of all kinds in bloom and holly,
trees and grass perfectly green. Victoria, Ihese travellers say, Is destined
to be a large residential city though not
so great a business centre as Vancouver.
A great many houses are built on the
rock, cellars not being required, aB
garen stuff is left out all winter.
On Jan. 6. Messers. Shants and Lone
went down to the Okanagan to Vernon
where they spent a couple of days. They
visited Peachland, Summerland and
Pentlcton with varied experiences and
sensations when they returned to Sica-
mous.
From Sicamous the tourists went to
Nelson, which is a prosperous business
c'ty, with very good land around It.
They formed the opinion that In the
Kootenay district a fruit farm can he
secured with less money than ln the
Oksnagan, the land being cheaper and
not requiring Irrigation. It Is besides
a rouple of days nearer to the western
market.

Tbe court sittings of the supreme

Clements on the bench. On behalf or
the bar W. A. Macdonald, K. C, congratulated his lordship on his election

In a narrower jurisdiction might be continued.
The case of Snow vs. Crow's Nost
Pass Coal Co. was then called.. The following special Jury was empanelled and
sworn: D. C. McMorris, foreman, W. S.
Drewry. A. H. Gracey, W. Brown. R. J.
Steel, F. M. Black, G. W. McBride and
Leslie Crawford.

Myers-Gray appeared for the plaintiff,
and S. 8. Taylor, K. C, and H. W.
Herchmer for the defendant company.

defendant company. While ut work on
dump No. 1, he was struck by a car and
thrown nine and one half feet, and
against the cog gear of dump No. 2. in
which his hand and arm were caught,
receiving Injuries that necessitated amputation. It was submitted that tlie defendant company was guilty of negligence In not have gourd rails on the
track and around tne cog gear. Damages were claimed In the sum of$7*<00.

firBt witness.. He told the story of the
accident and Its results. His cross-examination was then begun by S. S. Taylor, K. C.
As the facts are hardly disputed and
the chief issue Is one of legal liability,
the taking of eveldence will probably
not last long.

United States System of Dealing ia
Irrigation  Lands  Vastly
Superior to Canada.
Ottawa, Feb. 12.���The debate on I lis
Dobbins Irrigation Co. was resumed .1
the house. Among those who took pa it
In the discussion when it was up laat, w:f��
Dr. Mclntyre (Strathcona), who point.-I
out tbat eastern members who were discussing the matter were not familtaf
with the question of irrigation as wei*
those from the West.
Mr. Lake iQu'Appelle), was the flitt
speaker yesterday. He gave a brltt
history of the compact with the Gran I
Forks Co. and stated that' about 0900..
000 had been paid to the promoters between the time the Orand Forks owner,
and the Southern Alberta Co. got control. The complaint of the opposition
seems to be tbat the Fuglish investor**
paid too much for that bargain. Ha
favored public ownership more than prt��
vate enterprise for irrigation.  "    **
Mr. McPherson (Vancouver), In reply,
said that what had made the United
States was individual effort with tho
government's assistance. The people
could not do anything. The opposition
complained that some parties had made)
money by Inducing capitalists to lr*tt*
gate land that bud been lying waste tor-
20 years. ^^^^_^
Mr. Carvell (Carcltoni, made a careful review of the whole traustlon, -show-
Ins that (he government bad nothing
to do with the Issuing of the prospectus
In London, which gave such a glowing
picture of the InndsC Was tt a crime
ror a company to buy lauds? Was It ��
crime for a company to buy landa and
-sell them for more than Is paid? He
would like to ask the member for Beat
Slmcoe	
Mr. Bennett Immediately Interrupt
and said that if Mr. Carvell had any*
charge to make be should do so now,
and he would get his answer.
Mr. Carvell���The member for East
Slmcoe should not be so impatient. He
must not get too anxious because before the session Ib over he will h-ear
more of Northwest lands than be de��
slreB.
After dinner Mr. Borden continued hi*
financial analysis, showing that the
the prices which the company expected
to get were thee times as much aa land
should cost when Irrigated, had there
been no middle profit. He dwelt on th*
fact that for this particular deal the
government abrogated the usual restriction that the price to the settler
should not be higher than $5. For thi*
deal also the government omitted to put
in a condition fixing the maximum"
price at which the company should sell
water granted to It in the concession.
The minister of the Interior had professed to show, a difference betw-sen
this concession and other irrigation
grants. He bad been "so unfair aa not
to mention ihe essential and important
difference that the Hltchcock-McOrefor
grant left Ihe lesse free to charge what
|ie liked for land and waler. Reclame-
tion work of this character in the United States was adding fOOO.OOO.OOO
worth of arable lands to the public -to-
main.. Had the new Canadian system
been followed this would become the
property of government faVorltes, aad
800,000.000 acres would have been alien-
ated. Instead .this land would be made
Into settlers' holdings for high-class Ullage. Mr. Horden said that he not much
care whether Irrigation in the Canada
dry belt was conducted by the government or by private parties, but lt should
be so carried out that reclaimed land
sliould go to tho settlers st a moderate
profit over the cost of reclaiming IL

discussion that followed, the most Important, contribution, perhaps, being
Rev. J. T. Ferguson's complaint aB to

DOUBLEJHE COST
Grand Trunk Pacific
Exceeds Estimates
ENORMOUS EXPENSES
Of Construction Increased by Faulty
Engineering and Choice of
Yellow Head Pass.
Ottawa, Feb. 12.���When parliament
met In November Mr. Fielding made the
statement that his tariff bill was ready
and would be passed through Its various stages before Christmas. We are
now at the end of January and tho
scedule Is just through discussion lu
committee. At least a hundred Items
have been wltheld by the minister for
further revision, and II is pretty certain that at thiB moment he does not
know what the thc tariff will be on at
least half that number of Important
classes of articles.
It may be said further that only one
volume of the three comprising the
auditor-general's report for the year
ending last June Is ready. For two
months and more the public accounts
committee has been waiting for this
and for returns asked for and not yet
produced. Consequently that committee,
whose business it Is to enquire Into
expenditure, and which last year exposed many scandals, has not been able
to get to work.
Little by Utile Information comes out
showing that the cost of the national
transcontinental will cost at least
double the amount estimated by the gov-
ernment when the contract was made.
The first revelation made when the -construction contracts were signed al
schedule price, estimated by the engineer at over $50,000 per mile. It now
appears that the quantity of excavation
Is larger than was estimated and the
cost will be increased accordingly.
Moreover, the price of ties and rails ls
higher than was expected. So, whereas
Mr. Fielding placed the cost of the
railway between Quebec and Winnipeg
at (28.000 per mile with the extreme
possibilities of $40,000, it is shown that
thc road bed alone on the parts under
contract which are those most accessible, will be between $50,000 and $00,-
000, to which miiBt be added the cost of
lies, rails, tracking, station buildings,
tanks, workshops, etc.
Again it bas been brought out by
Senator Ferguson that the Rocky Mountain section, ostlmated at $50,000 per
mile, Is likely to cost $100,000. The still
more striking fact has come to light
that the adoption of the Yellow Head
Pass route adds some four hundred
miles to the costly mountain section,
reducing the prairie Bectlon on which
construction Is easy and cheap.
FINANCES  DISCUSSED
City   Council   Consider    Estimates   of
Many     Departments ��� Lighting
Will be Improved.
Last nlghl's meeting of Ihe city council was largely taken with financial ��f-
rairs, estimates from many departments
being presented. The complete estimates for all city expenditure will be
prepared earlier than has been usual In
the Inst few years.
An important liBt of recommendations from the fire, water and light committee was adopted. The principal one
presented a scheme for improving the
street lighting system by many additions.
The council met shortly after 8, with
Mayor Gillett in the chair, and Aldermen Hume Selous, Annable, McMorris;
Irving and Rose present. The minutes
of the last meeting were read and
adopted. The finance committee reported, recommending three pay rolls,
in connection with the moving of the
court house, tramway, moving of pavilion, and scavenging departments.
The remowl of the court house has
so far cost $774.. The mayor estimated
that the final oast will amount to $100
more. A small part of the cost will be
met hy appliances purchased and on
hand. The mayor stated that ths se-
I verity of the weather during the mov
ing hud, Increased the cost by at least
$100.
The report of the committee wnti
adopted.
The Flic. Water and Light -commiltee
report in] as follows:
1���That tbe lighting system of the
clly be Improved by placing clusters
of (candescent lights as follows: 4 on
Front street. 1 on Lake, I on Silica, I
on l.iiilinet*.. 11 on Hoover, 1 on Robson,
:: on Gore. X on lnnes and 2 on Houston;
and also die lighting of Baker street
from Kootenay street lo the C. P. It.
depot.
2���That meters be placed for customers in store and offices on request.
3���Thai the ringing of the hours by
the fire ue|>artmcnt be discontinued except for lhe curfew bell.
4���That 600 feet of hose be purchased
for the fire department.
5���That 200 feet of hose be turned
over to the water department for use
ln flushing sewers.
On motion of Alderman Selous the
report was taken up clause by clause.
He then explained that the additions
recommended involved placing lights on
practically every corner, and lighting
llaker street down to the C. P. R. depot. The object of clause 3, he explained, was to keep the flre"hall bell
for fire purposes only.
The report ln full was adopted.
The city engineer reported having examined the C. P. R. sewer, and recommended that it be continued to deep
water.
He also reported on the two main city
sewers, at the foot of Stanley and Cedar
streets, the former of which be recommended be continued to deep water.
The city engineer stated that the septic tank system Is much in favor, but
not essential to sanitation where sewage can issue Into running water.
He admitted in reply to Alderman
Selous. that a septic tank at the mouth
of the C. P. R. sewer might be overflowed during high water.
Both reports were referred to the
board of works.
A letter from the Canada Zinc Co.,
asking for the continuation of the city-
water system eastward from the city
limits, was referred to the Ftr.e Water
and Light committee.
The estimates of the hoard of school
trustees, already published In The Dally
Canadian, were referred to tbe Finance
committee.
Chief Deasy's estimate of $0678 for
the fire department was referred to the
Finance committee.. The chief also reported several minor matters affecting
the Internal discipline of the force.
T. Week"s resignation of the super-
intendency of the tramway system wae
accepted.
A request from the driver of the fire
team for an Increase of salary was refused.
Duncan McCulag was appointed caretaker of the cemetery ln place of Alexander Allan whose resignation was presented.
City Clerk Wasson reported taxes In
arrears, $7385; licenses, $1386: light,
$1500; water, $4500.. It was referred
to the finance committee.
Alderman McMorris' question as to
tramway extension up Stanley street
was referred lo the finance committee.
It was agreed that an effort should be
made to have the estimates brought
down early this year. The council then
adjourned to February 25th.
IN FAVOR OF KOOTENAY.
Winnipeg Fruit Land investors Explore
the West.
The Winnipeg Free Press of a recent
date reports an Interview with several
prominent citizens of the prairie capital who have Just returned from an exploratory tour of llrltlsh Columbin. It
says: "A. K. Shantz and J. W. Lone
arrived ln the city early Sunday morning from a prolonged tour in British
Columbia. They left for the west on
December 14, spent a few days lu Calgary, Christmas ln Vancouver, and New
Year's In Victoria. They were Impressed
with Vancouver as a very busy city,
just starting to wake up. The weather
was quite cold during their stay. In
Victoria on New Years day they saw
flowers of all kinds ln bloom and holly,
trees and grass perfectly green. Victoria, these travellers say, Is destined
to be a large residential city though not
so great a business centre as Vancouver.
A great many houses are built on ihe
rock, collars not being required, as
garen stuff Is left out alt winter.
On Jan. 6. Messers. Shantz and Lone
went down to the Okanagan to Vernon
where they spent a couple of days. They
visited Peachland, Summerland and
Pentlcton with varied experiences and
sensations when tliey returned to Sica-
mous.
From Sicamous the tourists went to
Nolson, which is a prosperous business
c'ty. with very good land around lt.
They formed the opinion that In the

W. A. Macdonald. K. C, and J. P.
Myers-Gray appeared for the plaintiff,
and S. S. Taylor, K. C, and H. W.
Herchmer for the defendant company.
Mr. Macdonald opened to the jury.
The plaintiff was an employee of the
defendant company. While at work on
dump No. 1, he was struck by a car and
thrown nine and one half feet, and
agalnBt the cog gear nf dump No. 2. in
which his hand and arm were caught,
receiving injuries that necessitated amputation, it was submitted that the defendant company was guilty of negligence ln nol have guarS rails on the
track and around tne cog gear. Damages were claimed lu lhe sum of$7500.
Henry Snow, the plaintiff, was the
first witness.. He told the story of the
accident and Its results. His cross-examination was then begun by S. S. Taylor, K. C.
As the facts are hardly disputed nml
thc chief issue is one of legal liability,
the taking of eveldence will probably
not last long.

United States System of Dealing in
Irrigation Lands Vastly
Superior to Canada.
:M
Ottawa. Feb. 12.���The debate on tha
Dobbins Irrigation Co. was resumed HI
tbe house. Among those who took poit
In the discussion when it was up last, wu"*
Dr. Mclntyre (Strathcona). who points I
out that eastern members who were dU-
cussing the matter were not familin?
with tbe question of irrigation as wen
those from the West.
Mr. Lake (Qu'Appelle), was the fin*
Bpesker yesterday. He gave a brlit
history of the compact with the Gran I
Forks Co. and stated that' about $��0*..
000 had been paid to the promoters bt-
tween the time the Grand Forks owner, '$
and the Southern Alberta Co. got control. Tbc complaint of the opposition ,
seems to be that the English Investor*
paid too much for that bargain. Ht.
favored public ownership more thin ftt.
vate enterprise for irrigation. "   ~      ***<���
Mr. McPherson (Vancouver), ln reply,
said that what had made the United
States was individual effort with tbe
government's assistance. The people
could not do Anything. The opposition
complained that some parties had mad*
money by inducing capitalists to Irri-
v.site Imul that hud been lying waste tor,
211 years. ^^^^^_
Mr. Carvell (Ciii-olinn). made a careful review of the whole traustion, showing that the government had nothing
tsi do with the Issuing or the prospectus
In London, which gave such a glowing j
picture of the lnndtf: Was It a crime
ror a company to buy lands? Waa It ft
crime for a company to buy lands and.
sell them for more than Is paid? He
would like to ask the member for But
Slmcoe	
Mr. Bennett Immediately interrupt;
and said that If Mr. Carvell had any*
charge to make he should do so now,
and he would get his answer.
Mr. Carvell���The member for East
Slmcoe should not be so impatient. He
must not get too anxious because before the session Is over be will hear
more of Northwest lands than he desires.
After dinner Mr. Borden continued his
financial analysis, showing that the
the prices wblch the company expected
to get were thee times as much as land
should cost when irrigated, had there
been no middle profit. He dwelt on the
fact that for this particular deal the
government abrogated the usual restriction that the price to the settler
should not be higher than $6. For thla
deal also the government omitted to put
ln a condition fixing the maximum"
price at which the company should sell
water granted to It In the concession.
The minister of the Interior had professed to show, a difference between
this concession and other Irrigation
grants. He had heen so unfair as not
to mention the essential and important
difference that the Hitchcock-McGregor
grant left Ihe lesse free tn charge what
lis. liked for land and water. Reclamation work of this character In the United Stales was adding $900,000,000
worth of arable lands to the public domain.. Had thc uow Canadian system
been rollowed this would become the
property of government faVorltee, and
800,000,000 acres would have been alienated. Instead .this land would be made
Into settlers' holdings for high-class Ullage. Mr. Borden said (hat he not much
care whether Irrigation ln the Canada
dry belt was conducted by the government or by private parties, but tt should
be so carried out. that reclaimed land
should go to the setdcrs at a moderate
profit over the cost of reclaiming lt.

SEEN BY OTHERS,
tl is gratifying al all limes to Tinil
outside opinion reflecting the general
sentiment of the west, and on the olher
hand noiliing Is so humiliating as to
find ignornnl or politically perverse
discussion ol local oondttlons by papers
oiiiBiik. the province. Tbe Toronto
Mall look n keen interest In tlle late
elecllons anil pin up an Intelligent and
forcible argument ror the return of the
government. Now thai lhe elections
nre over llie comment of the Mail upon
tbe alluallon is worthy of reproduction
because of its masterly summing np.
The Toronto paper says: "Saturday's
victory in British Columbia naved one
rich province from the control of political grafters oh the victory in Ontario
two years ago redeemed another rich
province frooin the same class of exploiters. There is reason to believe
that British Columbia Is on the eve of
developments of the same wonderful
oharacter aB those tor which Ihe change
of government appeared to be Ihe signal
in Ontario.
Throughout Its enormous extent tie
Pacific province abounds in resources.
Until Ontario's marvelous Cobalt field
entered upoon lis period of production
British Columbia wus the great silver
province in Canada. In no otber part
of the Dominion were there mines lo
rival those of the Slocan camp and
other spots ln the southern portion of
the province. When the fall ln sliver
forced the mines of Nevada, California
and Mexico to close down, the silver-
lead properties of the Slocan continued
to yield prroflts to their owners. Until
tbe placers of tbe Yukon began their
remarkable conlribuilons to the world's
output of gold, llrltlsh Columbia distanced all other parts of Canada as a
pi-odticer of the yellow metal, ln fact,
iis Cariboo mines have been ihe source
ol more gold than any oilier mineral
tract in Canada. Of Ihe useful metals,
iu addition to the lead associnted with
silver, and the copper associated with
gold, Its explorers have found abundant
evidence.. As prospectors are now
abroad in the interior of Vancouver, on
the coast of the mainland, and along
the courses of its rivers, the present
knowledge of the island's natural resources is sure to be enormously increased In the early future. A gift of
which nature has been lavish to the
province is that article of prime necessity, coal. Occurring at widely separated
points, as at Nanaimo on Vancouver
Island, Uie Crow's Nest Pass at the
southern entrance of the province from
Alberta, at the Yellowhead pass in the
north and ln various other localities,
rich deposits of this mineral have been
found.. It has been well said lhat the
surface of that magnificent province's
mineral resources has been but
scratched. The next few years nre certain to bring to light some of ihe wealth
yel lying below that surface, lis timber, its great extent of rich arable land,
and its fisheries are other assets whose
production will Increase annually by
leaps nod bounds. In short, there Ib
everything there to attarct capital and
Industry.. Had thise prize fallen into
the hands of the political adventurers
whose Influence at Ottawa enabled
them to grab principalities fn our western interior and to hold up the population that was trooping ln from Europe
and the United States, an era of
plunder even more Infamous that that
which disgraces the hlBtory of Saskatchewan and Alberta, would have been opened in British Columbia. A hard
fight was made to snatch the control of
BrltlBh Columbia from tbe present honest rulers and to place lt ln the hands
of the gang, who, under the protection
of the Laurier government have robbed
tbe West. But at this crisis ln the history of their province the peopl eof Brit-
lsh Columbia proved not to be wanting
In public spirit.
AN* ADMIRABLE EXAMPLE.
The Cranbrook Herald made a hard
tight both for its candidate, Dr. King,
snd the LtbMtl party, lt won for Its
candliinto hut loss! for lis paarty both of
which results were not unexpected even
by lhe Herald. Now thai lt is over
The Herald lakes a position which if
Its example be followed by the preBB
throughput the province, will go a long
way to hasten the day when llrltlsh
Columbia will stand first in lhe splendid
galaxy of federated sections. The
Herald says: "The final returns show
ihat Premier MoBrlde has won in the
province, and has won a good working
majority. The Herald did uot support
the McUride parly, Iml it wants to con-
gratulate .Mr. McBride on securing a
majority tfcnt will enable hlm to carry
on the affairs ot the government without any alllanci- whatever, The Herald
would always prefer lo see u good working majority, no matter what party
wins, as lt believes lhat such a condition is for the best Interest or the governmenl. The Herald desires to say at
tills lime Unit in all matters thai are
for the advancement of the province as
a whole, Mr. McHrlde will receive its
support, The Herald stands for Uritish
Columbia antl for the Cranbrook district. It believes tliat the progress of
the province and the district ls ot far
more importauce than the political advancement of any party or any individual. Mr. McBride will not rind the
Herald a carping critic, but on the contrary he will find the Herald standing
uji for all that is good for the province,
all that promises prosperity, all that
will aid the individual and the people
as a whole. That Is the Herald's position in polities. It has no complaints
to make, no sores to heal. It will join
with lhe people as a whole on any question to benefit the province and the
people, throwing aside entirely party
considerations aud partizan feelings.
Every man is looking for success and
the way to achieve it is for all to work
together. We may not all agree on politico Issues, but when the battle is over,
then is the Ume for the people to amalgamate for one single purpose, and that
Is the prosperity or all."

EDITORIAL COMMENT.
With characteristic modesty Mr. McBride will return lo the work he had so
industriously, conscientiously set himself, lhe regeneration ot the province,
of its Hnances, its methods, its industrial development. He will not grow
vain by the people's verdict, rather will
he reel added responsibility because of
the new condition ul' things. New wIb-
dorn wil] come to his plans, new vigor
lu his administration, lie may shed no
tears as he looks on those of his adversaries whom the people bound that they
may  be harmless, but lie will feel in
the verdict given a summons to the
consecration of his beet thought and
service for his country.���Greenwood

MINCE  RUfERT  HOTEL.
Orand Trunk Pacific Wilt Erect ?lne
Hoetelry.
Vanoouver, Feb. 12.���Tenders for the
construction of the proposed new hotel
for the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway at
Prince Rupert closed last week. The
plans, which were prepared by Architect
Rattenbttry, were finished aonie lime
nuts, and forwarded to headquarters.
Once the contract has been let the work
will lie pushed ahead at once, ue according lo the arrangements made hy
Ihe railway company, It ls necessary
that 11 be completed by July of the present year.
Although It ls only designed as a
lemimrary provision lo see the new port
through the first few years of Its existence, the new hotel will be a handsome structure. It will consist of a
main body four storeys In height, with
two large wings of three storeys each.
Throughout, the building is fitted up In
the most modem manner, lt Is being
built primarily for the use of those who
will be employed on the railway construction work, but once it is In running
order It is expected that It will also
be largely patronized by hunters and
tourists. For comfort and convenience
It will be, despite Its somewhat pioneer,
not surpassed by any hotel on the eoa*st
It Ib estimated that it will coal iu the
neighborhood of $00,000. It will be built
throughout of wood.
Already yarge quantities of building
material have been rushed to Prince
Rupert by various of the companies
that have taken sub-contracts from the
company that is building tbe railway,
and there Is already assembled at
Prince Rupert materiel sufficient to allow a start being made oa the hotel
Just as soon as the contract Is lei.
Labor Dispute tattled,
Halifax, N. 8., Feb. 1!.���The Btrlke
at No. 3 colliery, Sydney mines, has
been settled by nonunion men all joining the association, There are now over
950 members In Pretorlan Lodge, The
colliery resumed operations today, a
thoroughly union mine. The strike was
a complete victory for the union, and
the occasion was celebrated with much
enthusiasm by the lodge laat night. The
company took no part whatever ln the
difficulty, tbe dispute being altogether
a matter between the men themselves.
The questipn at Issue was whether or
not nonunion men should work ln the
colllerjr.

ARMED AGAINST BRITAIN.
German   War  Preparations  a   Menace
to England.
Ixradon. Feb. 12.���"It la absolute folly
to hide our eyes to Ute fact that all tlte
war equipment of Germany ls aimed
against Oreat Britain."
These are the words of Sir Edward
Russell, proprietor of the Liverpool
Pust, ln comment on the German elections.
"The fact Is," he continues, "Oermnay
muat have space to colonize in. Suitable
apace for that pttrjiose can only be acquired ��fl<*r defeating England. Directly Great Hritain Is l**4<W*4 1*9 'he r��I>k
of a third-rate power Germany Is world
supreme.
"There Is no desire to annex these
Islands, but to cripple Great Britain
financially. The vast French indemnity
ufter Sedan would be nothing to what
Oreat Britain would have to pay were
she obliged to sue for peace, and besides money Germany would then occupy Asia Minor and Egypt, thus holding the key to India.
"To be forewarned Is not to be forearmed, for these prognostications have
already been preached to deaf ears.
"The British army ls a toy and the
lessons of the Bouth African war have
not been taken to heart. The navy Is
unpnuvep, for no great battle between
European States has been fougth since
Trafalgar.
"Wherefore ponder, for Germany
means to fight Great Britain on some
pretext within five years-., possibly
earlier."

R. M.  R.  Ball.
The last public dance in Xelson be
fore Lent could not have taken place
under better auspices to ensure its success. The soldiers boys never fall In
their duty as hosts.
lt was easily the most enjoyable
dance of the season, the attendance being much larger than on New Year's
Eve, over 250 people taking part, most
of whom remained till the last dance.
The music was excellent; the members of Irwin's orchestra never acquitted themselves better,. Thc excellent supper was seerved. and guests
were generously provided for by the
hosts.
No. 2 Company, R. M. R., Is doubt
lessiy an efficient, militia unit, as Lord
Alymer and Colonel Holmes, inspecting
officers have testified, but the people
of Nelson require no outside testimony
as to the boy's efficiency as hosts, under their present officers.

The Play.
Only favorable opinions are expressed
of The Scarlet Mysteries company by
those who enjoyed their performance In
the opera house lati evening. The musical selections were uniformly excellent and the humorous selections were
far above the usuul standard. A pleas
Ing feature was the entire elimination
of delays and interruptions. The Mason-
Risch g,and piano used was klndli
loaned to the company by Melville S.
Parry Another performance will be
given thin evening. The atrtendanoe
last night was fair but a full house If
assured for this evening.
