Compulsory Conciliation and Investigation the Limit of Liberal
Generosity to Labor.
i tiawa. F.b. IS.���Most of the alter-
in Ihe bouse was occupied by the
iis-sl debate on Mr. K. L. Borden's
I notion for tha appointment of a select
ss-iimittie to enquire into the conditions
irrvalllng in Canada with a view of the
DtrodUCtloo of legislation for the pre-
entlon and settlement of disputes be-
employers and employees. When
|tss- mot on was lam before the house
month ago Mr. Ralph Smith moved sn
.* ilmesit to tho effect that the con-

of Mr K. I.  Borden: "That In the

Atlsfaatory in that it put a strong

"l workmen. An employer might
''dure the wages of his workmen, nnd
Ilu   latter COtlld  not  retaliate, until an
nv-sstlgft'lon hnd b>,en held.
Mr. Ileiimd doubted whether thnt was
pMslble under tlle bill.
Mr Molntyre (South Perth), while
Iredltlng ihe mover of tho resolution
��*ith the best Intentions, thought they
tnd enough information on th* subjoct,
( Is.ev could only apply It.   The ques-
on -w.iH nut thu seme In Canada aa ln

Ill cd.
Mr. Poster plcadetf for a non-pnrtlsan
!regiment of the question. He did not
grec that the purpose ol" the resolution
'us to postpone legUslatlav. It was a
ilea lor Information. He was not a
'<*ry wlso man and not uvery -sane man
Uio thought thnt In the bacV of his
pain ho had hulflclent Information or
[lfflclently mature ideaB to enable him
soiiIb the queBilon once and for all.
Its question* of capital and labor a
IMril olement was coming to the front,
|ti*-hiiig iu way and defining Itself, and
Tint third party was the great public.
"io attitude that either capital or
labor should be able to cause to the
public unutterable woe or damage waa
ImposBlble. The member from Naniamo
had said thst It was Impossible to intervene by force of law In labor disputes,
that the rountry was not ripe for such
It had been argued that strike* and
losknuiB were Iho weapons of labor, but
while lt wns a weupon, surely it was a
relic of barbarism, the law of tbe club,
which was not to found ln any otber
part of civilized life, and they should
endeavor eo establish a proper tribunal
to deal with these questions, eliminating
club law as It had been eliminated ln
respect to olher questions. With this
object ln view they should, he thought,
seek all Information, availing themselves of the experiences of other coun.
tries in wtilh labor questions, had assumed tremendous proportions, snd
where they had been grappled with
c ura-zeous'y.
Mr. I.* Kins pointed out that tf Ihe re-
folutlrn were passed lt would practically mean thc shelving for the present
session of the weH-consldered bill which
thc minister of labor hsd Introduced.
There were only two wsys to deM
with labor dlspu'es in Canada, and
those were compulsory concilistion and
investlcat'on. aod he waB convinced
that If the b 11 Intrdduced by the minister of labor became law It would be the
means of settling 95 per cent of the!,
labor deputes In the country. To ap
liolnt the proposed committee would re-
lard useful legislation, and amount to
a declarat'on of want of confidence in
tb? m'nlater of labor.

rirst Session Discloses Important Meaa
urea te be Advanced���Birrel a
Pronounced Home Ruler.
London, Feb. 14.���The flrat business
day of the present session of parliament
has given evidence of Important legislative matters In hand and promise ot
vigorous political fighting.
Augustine Birrel's maiden speech, aa
chief secretary for Ireland, highly
pleased the Nationalists and supplies
the test for strong attacks by the opposition newspapers this morning. Mr.
Birrel has frankly avowed himself a
Home Ruler and confessed that thc government's education bills will be a
stepping stone to home rule.
The Te legrsph ln nn editorial article
this morning says that truth, like murder, will out, and Mr. Birrel with childlike simplicity has disclosed tbe real
Irish politics ot the government. His
magic wand has awakened Home Rule
from Its slumbers. Tbe surrender Is
complete, and Mr. Redmond has asked
tor nothing more.
In the lobby of the house of commons
last night Mr. Illrrel's speech was the
subject of much gosBlp and there was
curiosity ss tu what a man like Lord
Rosebery and other political anti-home
rule Liberals would take out of It.
Another matter of Importance Is the
statement made by Herbert II. Asquith,
chanceller of the exchequer, concerning
old-age pensions.. This ls regarded as
meaning that tbe government Intends
to propose some scheme and that Mr.
Asquith meditates "earmarking'' a portion of tho expected large surplus in
tlie next budget for a pension fund.
The first official Information of Ihe
lines oil which the Irish bill will lie
named was cutiilm-d In today's parliamentary papers, which appears a notice
by Augustine Blrrell, chief secretary for
Iii'lnnd, of llie Intention of the government to Introduce at an early dnte a
bill to provide un Irish council, and for
other purposes connected therewith.
This Bcems to confirm the forecasts to
thc effect thnt Ireland will be given
leglBlstlve council, similar to that of
crown colonics, partly elected and partly nominated.

Provincial Association of Trustees Has Many Suggestions as to Details,
But no Quarrel With General Principle of Present Act.
The third annual convention of the
provincial association of school trustees
came to an end this evening. The visitors will be entertained by the local
trustees ln the K. of P. hall.
The trustees have discussed nearly
everything, always with good intentions
and generally with broad minds, but occasionally with a regrettable, even If
unconscious, devotion to special and
local considerations.
The result will be a great number ol
recommendations to the education department and to the government on a
great variety of subjects, some of which
may be entitled to consideration.
After the business on the order paper
for yesteray afternoon waB disposed of,
a number of resolutions left over from
last year were taken up.. Two stood in
the name of Dr. Ernest Hall of Victoria.
The first "That inasmuch as many
children are allowed to grow into maturity without a knowledge of themselves, thereby incurring grave bodily
risks, be it reBOlved that Instruction in
sexual physiology be recommended to
be given to boys and girls in separate
classes, and wherever practicable by a
medical practitioner: and only to pupils
over the age of 12 years, "waB lost.
The second, also by Dr. Ernest Hall,
condemning the teaching of drill was
lost, and the following substituted for
It, wss carried:
"As lt is Inadvisable to foster a spirit
of militarism, the convention oppose tho
formation of cadet corps and the teaching of the use of lethal weapons, and
that any drill taught be merely 'setting
up* drill."
The following was then adopted:
Resolved, that the government be
urged to set aside crown lands for
school purposes In the various mould,
pslltles.���South Vancouver, Burnaby
and Richmond boards.
Resolved, that the government be
urged to provide free text books for
public schools.���South Vancouver, Bum-
aby and Richmond boards.
Resolved, that the government be
asked to supply each public school with
a full set ot district maps showing the
latest surveys of tho province.���South
Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond
Resolved, thst the government be requested to hand over the poll-tax to the
municipalities for school purposes and
If unsuccessful to have same cancelled
as far as resident taxpayers are concerned.���Bouth Vanoouver board.
Resolved, that the government be requested to provide equipment for Manual training centres.���South Vancouver,
Burnaby and Richmond boards.
The following were left over for fu
tore consideration:
Resolved, that the government be
asked to contribute dollar for dollar
with the municipalities toward enc'i of
tho teacher's salaries in nddltion to thc
lump sum of 14 0.���South Vancouver,
Burnaby and Richmond boards.
Resolved, that the government be
asked to contribute dollar for dollar
with the municipalities towards the cosl
of manual training nnd ordlnnry school
buildings ln addition to the lump sum
of 11500 for each.���South Vancouver,
Burnaby and Richmond boards.
The convention reassembled at 7:30.
the following resolution wns presented
hy J. ,1. Dougan:
Resolved, that In mutters of dismissal
or resignation, teachers sliould be amenable lo like regulations ns are tho members of nchool boards.���Surrey municipal hoard.
The resolution was seconded by
D. P. Kane.
Inspector Stewnrt explained that thc
present Inw was framed to prevent dismissal for trivial causes, often due to
petty factions, or from quarrels about
such matters ns where a teacher might
Mr. Dougan knew of a case of a teacher being dismissed for declining to marry the daughter of a trustee.
After a long discussion In which it
wss pointed out thst tho resolution did
not cover the ground Intended, the resolution was put and lost
The next resolution was:
ReBOlved, that the time has come
when steps Bhould be taken by the provincial government towards reducing
the cost of high and public school text
books: preferably that the government
own tho copyright and sell to the trustee boards at slightly above cost price.
���Spallumcheen board.
Mr. Hodgson suggested ln Its stead
a resolution calling upon tho department to provide free text books In public schools.
Mr. Floyd read from the report of the
Ontario commission on the cost of text
books, showing that about three-fourths
of the cost of books represented retailer's prints, but without making any allowance for cost of matter or of plates
for Illustration.
At Mr. Hannington's request the for
mer resolutions on the same subject
were reed.
Dr. Arthur remarked that at the last
convention they hod learned from a
practical printer that a plant for the
production of text books would cost
$100,000, apart from royalty fees. He
also corrected this Impression of enormous profits to retailers. Nevertheless,
he thought that something might be
done to reduce the- cost.
W. P. Argue said that the Manitoba
government had Investigated the whole
matter, and abandoned the Idea.
After further discussion by Mr. Hannington, who thought that school boards
might buy books wholesale and supply
them at cost, and supported by Mr.
Floyd: the resolution was loBt.
The resolution:
ReBOlved. that the council of Public
Instruction be* requested to grant no
more certificates for teaching until a
Normal certiflaate has been obtained ���
Rossland board *** formally presented
by Mr. Gibson, who, however, explained
that since none* was given, they hsd
Icarnde that teachers were too scarce
to allow such i rule to be enforced,
and he therefore withdrew It.
As Dr. Corssan had not arrived the
reading of his paper was left till todsy.
Resolved, that a provision should be
Inserted in the school act making It
compulsory to fly the Csnadian flag
over school houses during school
hours," was presented by Messrs. Hodgson and Hannington, and carried unanimously.
"That ln rural municipalities power
should be given to the municipal councils to tax Improvements where lt
thinks fit for school purposes, ad to
levy a special poll tax for -school purposes on resident non-rate payers," was
presented by Metiers. Coote and
Inspector Stewart remarked that the
matter was really <over*d by the Municipal Clauses Act,
Mr. Hodgson replied that was was
want-ad was a sp*c!|!e power to tav Improvements and levy and extra poll tax
for school purposes only.
The question was discussed at length
bv Messrs. McNelsh, Gibson, Hannington. Floyd and Kane. The question was
then put and carried, only the Revelstoke delegates opposing.
"That the time has now arrived tho
government of British Columbia should
set aside Isnds for purposes of education," was presented by Mr. Peebles,
who said that had It been done 20 years
ago there need now be no special
school taxes. He hod received assurances that, if the trustees approved, the
matter would be dealt with at the next
session. The resolution was seconded
by Mr. Oibson.
It was amended, by consent, to specify
both public schools and a university. It
was then carried unanimously .
Mr. Oibson recommended thst all
delegates lmpreas the matter on their
respective representatives.
Tbe re-drafted resolution asking for
the appointment of more school inspectors was then read and adopted.
The convention then adjourned to this
morning at 9:30 .
The first resolution at this morning's
session was:
Resolved, that In rural municipalities
the number of trustee be Increased to
It wns discussed at great length and
It was pointed out that the greater number of trtiBtees would provide better tor
representation. The resolution was
Resolved, that a normal school be established In the Kootenays.���Nelson
board, presented by F. W. Swannell,
was vigorously opposed by Mr. ninning-
Inn. who was sure that the government
would not undertake the expense.
Mr. Argue also opposed on the ground
lhat the present Normal school is still
starved for funds.
Inspector Stewsrt pointed out thnt
the province Is still Indebted to Vancouver city for means of carrying on the
present school.
Mr. Dougan followed opposing, snd
Mr. Swannell supporting, the resolution.
E. A. Crease thought that the present
small attendance at the Normal school
was due to Its location. He was great,
ly ln favor of a Normal school in Koot-
Mr. PeebleB favored tho motion. He
laughed at Mr. Dougan's Iden of the
broadening Influences of the coast. He
hsd learned a great deal from Interior
Mr. Stewart replied that the present
financial conditions precluded even consideration of the resolution. Dr. Arthur
said that lt must come sooner or lste.
At Mr. Floyd's suggestion the resolution wns withdrawn.
The next resolution; the only one
touching the financial ' question: Resolved, that strong pressure be brought
lo bear on the provlncl-Ag-pvernment to
amend the School Act jpr the purpose
of Increasing Ihe grants to municipalities.���Ladysmith hoard, J-tood In the
name of ebe LadysmftP-mnrd, which
had no representative present.
Mr. Hodgson offered as a substitute
three resolutions: "Resolved, that the
government be asked to contribute dol
lar for dollar with the municipalities
toward each teacher's salary in addition
to the per capita grant:" "Resolved?,
that the government be asked to contribute dollar for dollar with the municipalities toward tbe cost of school
buildings In addition to the lump Bum
of $1500 for each;" and "Resolved, that
the government be asked to hand over
the poll tax to the municipalities for
Bchool purposes, and, If unsuccessful, to
have sums: cancelled as far as resident
tax payers are concerned."
It wns agreed to consider the Ladysmith resolution first, and for that pur-
jsoss. it was sponsored by Messrs. Dodg-
son and Gibson.
Mr. Hodgson explained that he had no
Idea of asking for a repeal of the
School Act, he favored control of the
schools by municipalities. Mr. Gibson
spoke of the Bpeclal hard circumstsnees
of Ross'and.
Mr.  Floyd  favored  the  resolution.
Mr. Stewart explained that the grant,
on the basis of the number of teachers
Instead of pupils, was Itended to discourage crowding nf .class rooms.
Mr. Odium drew attention to the fact
thgt the money had come from the people, directly or Indirectly, and that the
method was Immaterial.
Mr. Hannington handed round copies
a circular from the Grand Forks board,
SB   follows*
Grand Forks, B. C. Feb. ��, 1907.
Dear Sir.���I submit herewith a comparative statement of losses sustained
by the three classes of schools under
the new School Act, based unon an
actual aversge of 200 pupils, with tour
teschers, or an average of 50 pupils to
each t?aober;

The above difference ln loss of revenue to the three classes Is only apparent; the actual loaa to cities of the
third class will actually be more than
above stated, for tn most Instances
these cities will not qualify for the supplementary grant of 1100, eg. The first
class city receives $360 per annum per
teacher, plus (100 from the city and
$100 from the government, which gives
a salry of $46.66 per month. A second-
class city under like circumstances
would pay a salary of $61.66 per month,
and a third-class city under the same
circumstances would pay a salary of
$66.41 per month, whereas, ln cities near
the coast, many teachers are engaged
for $50 per month.
Our board feels that cities of the
third-class size are most unfairly dealt
with In tie matter of government aid
In comparison with the large cities, snd
I am sending a copy of the above to the
minister, the superintendent and our
members, respectively.
The School Act ls now under consideration, and we feel that the time ls
opportune to bring tbls matter up, and
would suggest that you bring It before
your board.     Yours respectfully,
Mr Hannington submitted tbat the act
failed to achieve Its avowed object of
equalizing aid to cities of the three
Mr. Argue replied that cities of the
first class paid a much higher proportion of the cost of education than citiees
of the second or third class.
Messrs. Swsnnell and Peebles also opposed, as did Messrs. Kane and Mc-
Ni'lsh. the latter suggesting special relief for Rossland.
Inspector Stewsrt said that the first
steps townrd decentralization in school
administrations were taken In deference
to the demand of the cities. He also
said that until Jnn. 1906, rural munci-
pulltleB received $5 for education alone
for $:: contributed to the provincial
The difference, he believed, came chiefly from the mines of Kootenay. The
last Act was an attempt to restore the
balance. Rural municipalities still contributed mere trifles to the cost of education.
After replies by McBsrs. Hodgson and
Hannington, an amendment postponing
consideration to ihe noxt meeting ws.
The resolution: Resolved, that the
date should bo fixed on whle ' the appointment nnd salary of teaohers should

term nnd to new teachers.���Rossland
board, was then Introduced by Oibson.
Many more or less Interesting ex.
perlences were related. Inspector Oil-
lls favored a clear definition. The res
olutlon was then adopted, and noon re,
cess was taken. *
Resolved, that teacners, after accepting an appointment, should not be allowed to broak the same Just before the
opening of school, was then presented
by J. Gibson, wbo told of the Inconveniences sometimes suffered. A long
discussion followed showing general belief that teachers should be made to
adhere to contracts.
The resolution wss amended to provide the penalty of suspension of certificate for wilful breach of contract,
snd was then adopted.
A resolution urging a apeclal extra
grant of $100 per teacher to Rossland
was offered and defeated without discussion. Several redrafted resolution*
were then read and approved.
"That It would benefit the schools If
Inspectors reported to trustees Immediately after Inspection," was moved by
Messrs. Floyd and Manning. It was generally approved, and was adopted.
A resolution from Vancouver expressed regret at the low average of
salaries nnd suggested $100 for males
und $76 for females as Ideal minimum
monthly salaries for competent and experienced teachers, wss advocated by
V. w. Odium and J. J. Dougan.
A resolution urging that teachers
holding second-class certificates be allowed to obtain flrst-clus certificates
by examination in a few special subjects
only, was presented by Messrs. Dougan
and Odium.
A few other resolutions, some of them
formal, were also passed.
Non-Suit   Refused���Attempt   to
Contributory Negligence.
At the close of the plaintiff's case In
Snow ys. C. N. P. Co., yesterday afternoon, S. S. Taylor, K. C. for tbe a*

the Jurors were on hsnd at the opening ot the court this morning. The wife
af Juror Bolton, who ls suffering from
double pneumonia, continues In a critical condition, however, and her husband
may be called away at any time.
When Thaw came Into court he
seemed to take special interest tn
Bolton. As Justice Fltigerald took his

Serioas Charges Admitted
ky Captain HcVey
Gave Orders fer Laondiing of Ufe
Boats���Stepped Into His Own
and Hade Away.
Providence, R. I., Feb. 14.���A new!
element was Introduced Into the horror
attending the loss of the steamer Larchmont ln Block Island Sound on Monday-
night through a collision with the cosl
laden steamer Harry Knowlton when
Captain McVey, of the steamer, early-
today admitted that his life boat waa
one of the first, it not ihe first, to
leave the sinking ship.
This atatement waa made in reply toi
charges by Fred Hlergsell, on 18-year-
old lad of Brooklyn, one of the survivors. Hiersgell -Stated that the passengers were left to shift for themselves,
that the -ship's crew crowded the boat*
without attempting to provide for tho
passenger* and that the captain was th*
first to desert the ship. The statement
ot tbe young lad created confusion In
view of the fact that of tha sorvlrors
10 were employees of the ship, or ln
other words, that -while approximately
28 per cent of the vessel's crew was
saved, only $ per cent, of the passenger* survived.
Captain McVey explained that white
the boat may have been In the -water lt
was because he had a good crew aad
despite the fact that he was-among th*
first off the deck he remained by hi*
���hip until she went down. He said that
he had maile no move to set Into th*

Many of thc fasli-rn newspapers took
a keen interest in the ilntlsh Columbia
elections anil the press of lhe Wesi hay
���eagerly awaited the arrival of the ex-
-dUUlgSB, .-specially the Liberal papers,
to reus! their explnnations as to how 11
btppeoed.. Soma ut ttaess papers still
maintain lhat ihe goveninient has heen
bopolesaly corrnju uml thai Its return
Is a slgu tluil British Columbia's political honor Is in a low ebb. None of
them SHBert that the s-lcciors have been
debauched and the assertions of most.
If not all, of those who still harp upon
tho string of thc exploded scandals
raised by the opposition show only how
determined lhe Liberal press can be In
Its assaults upon the success of any section of the Conservative parly.
The amount of iitnoianee betrayed by
the eastern press about the affairs of
BrlllBh Columbia both ooiumei-claHy and
politically would be uiiiuhIiik were li not
painful to reflect on the fact that tli.-se
papers are taken seriously by tlu-ir own
readers and an entirely false roncepilon
of the situation In this province Is ore-
���led by their nUstStaloments.
Responsibility for these conditions is,
however, not hard lo fix. It lays exclusively at the door of the corrupt ami venal
prt-oa of British Colombia, whose whole
���xlHtenci- has seoined to center in prolonged efforts at calumny and a traducing of i)i-lt:sb Columbia's public men,
Willi rare exceptions there haa never
been In the blalory of Journalism In
Canada such an unscrupulous rcBort to
flttlon antl falsehood as has character
ized the attitude of the Liberal press toward the government. Tho other prov*
lnces. for the most part Innocent of tho
meaning of such violent and persistent
attacks except in the case of the Dominion government where tliey known
to be due, have of course assumed that
there must have been some justification for them, and not even now, that
the country has given the lie to the
wholesale slanders, will ihey be persuaded that the government has been
sustained on its merits. Fortunately
for the province of British Columbia
that section of its press whose whole
career has been one of political dishonor and sneaking methods of the
worst sort has sunk so low in the respect of lhe people that its inflence will
never more be felt, at least not until
by years of retraction and honest Journalism, tbey reestablish themselves In
public confidence.
Some excuse can be made for -he eastern press especially when as in lhe caso
of the Toronto Globe there would set-m
to be a disposition to discredit the re-
pt-rts which misled it ln some of its
foolish attacks upon the provincial administration. The Globe In one instance
errs eggreglously when It Bays "The
questions shown up by tho opposition
do not Heetii to have weakened the gov-
einmeiii und that Is the uiiforiunute
feature of tbe result." Did tlle Globe
but know that the electorate of Hritish
Columbia, the people right on the
ground and who took every opportunity
to familiarize themselves with the facts
respecting "the questionable transactions" alleged by the opposition, found
that the allegations of the opposition
were unworthy methods of political warfare and fnctlotiB methods of criticism
and for this reason, perhaps as much
as any other, sel their face against the
appeals of the Liberals. Had the campaign of Hlander boen Bhorter and had
llie government had less lime In which
to disclose the Inner nature of every
transaction concerning which Ihe opposition chargeil inconipets'iice, mismanagement and corruption the results
might have been different. Forlunately
for the government the campaign began
early and at every turn the government
made good. So that bo far as Influencing tho electorate was concerned tliat
part of t|ie campaign was over before It
really began.. This feature of tile Bltuation accounts for the Importation of
Mclnnes Into the arena of controversy
and for the descent of a Judge from the
pedestal of justice to take part in the
campaign. The opposition knew the
weakness of its personnel! and of its
previous attacks upon the government
and made the usual resort to fresh blood
in the hope that by the importation of
fresh issues it might prevail. These
tactics also failed for the reason that
methods which rule ln the East are unacceptable lo the sturdy Independence
of the West.
After Btiulng that "The chief theme
discussed was the claim of the province
to a larger subsidy"���a statement which
is as far from the fact as could well be
���the Globe goes on to say "That the
richest of ull the provinces fs most
urgently In need of an Increased federal
grant seems to indicate that the weakness of the system Is developing at tbo
coast. The other provinces are fully
warranted in demanding proof that tho
public heritage haB been and is being
administered in the public interest before yielding to any demand for a larger
subsidy, and that attitude should not be
influenced or affected by any considerations of party triumph or defeat."
This reasoning is specious in the extreme and unworthy the Globe. The
province of llrltlsh Columbia did not
make an appeal for the Increase of federal subsidies on the ground
that it was in distreBs of
need. It based its request for revision of the subsidies on the claim that
it is not receiving Kb fair and just share
In the distribution of these. In this appeal or claim both sides of the legislature and the entire electorate are agreed
and ihre is no parly question involved.
When ti.e Globe says "The other prov.
inces are full? warranted in demanding
proof that the public heritage is not bo-
Ing wasted," It Is p.uning the strongest
possible warrant upon the attitude
which was taken by Premie. McHrlde
ot the lnter-provlncial conference. The
piemier asked for a commission before
which all the facts might be laid and
the whole question submitted to the arbitrament of a specially appointed committee whose business it would be to examine into and verify the claims.
Furthermore, the implied charge that
the administration has been extravagant is flippant in the extreme, for the
Liberal papers of British Columbia, with
one accord, have been charging the government vociferously with parsimonious-
ness excessive economy and everything
In the category of administrative acts
except extravagance.
The Globe has not been happy in its
attempted criticism of the affairs of
thc government of this province and we
respectfully Btiggest that It have respect
unto one of the paragraphs of Its own
article, which says '"The management
of Hritish Columbia's affairs Is not a
matter for other provinces to discuss."
Apparently the Ottawa government
intends to deal with the labor problems
of the country in their own way and
will make the Issuo a straight party
one. Their detennlnaiion Is evidently
to go no further than the enactment of
a measure for compulsory conciliation
and InvestigaUon. The attitude of the
member for S'analnio who said. "It is
Impossible to interfere by force of law
In labor disputes." may lie laken as
she attitude of the governmenl and
while opposition members complained
that the proposed legislation Is unsatisfactory hecause it does not go far
enough the government has lntlmater
ihat such legislation Is all the country
will get. Thus Ihe Liberal party is
again declaring Itself and thc declaration is not such as to inspire further
confidence in the minds of laboring
men. The Liberal party is corporation
and syndicate bound and Its feint st
legislation shows how cowardly and
weak it Is.
Thero has never been a time In lhe
history nf Canada wbou the strong arm
of tlie law waa more necessary to In-
leifero between striving corporations
ansl Btruggllng laborers.
The phrase, "compulsory Investigation," sounds well and ls a slight step
In advance of previous lerlslallon, but
'be term, "compulsory conciliation," Is
as hollow and m'snlngl'-fs as the pretences of tho government
The plea that the country Is not
ready for more drastic legislation Is a
sham because It Is the duly of every
government lo enact such legislation as
will protect tho rights of the peoplo
wbs'ther tho country Is ripe lor such
leglBlatlon or not. Under the reglmn
of the Laurler government It will be a
lM| Ume before the country will be ripe
lor advanced and progreSBive leglslallon
upon any subject but In tlle mennllme
the people must content IhemBClveB
with the reflection thut they havo
placed and maintained lhe Liberal parly
In powor that they must Buffer the consequences of their folly.
A careful perusal of lbe Ottawa debate In another column of this paper
will bIiow how eminently fair is tho attitude of the opposition by comparison,
it is not difficult to judge who Is ln
Ihs right
The Victoria Week has an excellent
cartoon modeled after the famous
phonograph advertisement entitled "Mis
Master's Voice. *%ho cartoon represents the Phonograph labelled as "The
Ottawa Machine," while In wrapt attention before the^peaklng funnel stand
two great quadrepeds with speaking
face resemblance to W. W. B. Mclimes
and J. A. Macdonald. The crouching
and humble attitude and expression of
the listeners is a tribute to lho correctness of the Bltuation and the artist's
ability to draw well.
Lritlsh Columbia's example In this
content Is something for the other provinces to follow. Not one of them
should permit the grasping and dishonest Ottawa concern to get lis nrlp or
to retain its grip upon ihs> provincial
government. The graft and dishonesty
practised at Ottawa onghl to bs- eon-
fined to that point until, by a general
rising of the people, we can wipe these
evils out once and forever.���Ottawa

To Consumers of Coal
and Wood
The undersigned beg to notify the public that:
On and after the ist February, 1907, orders for Coal
and Wood will only be executed when accompanied by
CASH. This course has been rendered imperative owing
to the largely increasing list of our customers and the
fact that we pay IN ADVANCE for all fuel (including
freight). We find we must either adopt the CASH
SYSTEM or RAISE the price of fuel���the latter course
we are reluctant to pursue.
Thanking our patrons for past favors and trusting
(nr continuance of friendly relations,
We are, yours obediently,
