Accounts of the discussion In the
Canadian bouse of commons on the representation of the maritime province,
are now to hand, as follows:
Mr. Hughes of Prince Edward Island
moved that an address bt presented
praying the Imperial government to
cause a measure to be summltted to
the imperial parliament for the purpose of amending the British North
America Act, so that the maritime provinces of the Dominion -comprising the
provinces of New Brunswick, Nova
ScoUa and Prince Edward Island, shall
not at any time have fewer representatives In the house of commons than
the number when it entered the federation.
In support of his resolution Mr.
Hughes Bald tt was the IntenUon of the
fathers of the confederation -that the
representation of the maritime provinces In parliament should not be decreased. If ibis were true of all the
maritime provinces It was particularly
correct as far as Prince Edward Island
was concerned. Mr. Hughes quoted
from the proceedings which led up to
confederation to show that Uie framers
of the constitution entertained the idea
that there should be no decrease even
If the population shou'd decrease. In
the minds of both parties at the time
of the union It was held that six members were necessary for the Island and
there ought not to be leas. It waa perfectly correct that the letter of the law
wae against the island, but the spirit
of the constitution was with them. If
the letter ot the law was not agalnBt
them, then they wou'd not have to appeal to the house. The courts would
have to settle it-
Mr. Martin said that If the Dominion
government had kept Its compact with
the island according to the act of confederation and maintained communication with the mainland Uie population
of tbe Island would have Increased and
it would be entitled to six member.,
If not more.
Dr. Daniel (St. John) said that Uie
que.tlon was not an academic one. It
we. one of deep interest to the maritime provinces. When the maritime
province, gave up their right, to make
tariffs and the like It may be taken for
granted that tbey were not prepared to
place themselves In a worse position
by reason of any reduction tn population. There was no doubt the father,
of confederation never Intended that
there should be a reduoUon. Certainly
the delegate, from the marlUmo provinces never Imagined that there was to
be a reduction. He quoted George
Brown and other, to .how that it was
never -contemplated that any of these
province, should be interfered with as
far a. representation wa. concerned.
Dr. Daniel maintained that ln increasing Uie boundaries of the province of
Quebec provision should be made for
the other provinces. In other word.,
the population within what wa. the
original province should be adhered to,
finding the unit which waB to govern
Mr. Aylesworth delivered a very able
and legal address on the terms of
union and the relation which the different province, have to the act of confederation. Had the resolution referred
entirely to Prince Edward Island he
would have healtated before expressing
his opinion, as he had Mas engaged as
When the maritime province, entered
confederation the negotiations were
carried on by autonomous suites. The
negotiations were commenced Dy the
lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia
and the governor of Prince Erward
Island, and the resolutions were forwarded to the Quebec conference. The
result of this conference waa to be
found in the seventeenth resoluUon,
which provides that the basis of representation In the house of commons
shall be representation by population.
He quoted the views of the delegates
of the island to this effect. The island
was offered five representatives, but
they declined it, so that there wa. no
doubt th's province would not adhere
to represents*, ion by population and
did net enter the union at that time.
As to the original four provinces
there certainly never was any room for
a question that they gave their adhesion and entered the union on the
terms of representation by population.
The result of this was to he found In
the decrease of the representation of
Nova Scotia to 18 through different readjustments, and of New Brunswick to
13 from the number that they had at
the Ume of union.
"it seems to me," said Mr. Aylesworth, "that the provinces of Nova
Scotia and New Brunswick should not
now deeply complain, if by an accident
through the terms of their contract being carried out, even If the increase or
diminution of population affects their
representation one way or another prejudicially to themselves." In 1867
Prince Edward Island refused to enter
the union. When it did enter in 1876
tt was plainly a matter of a bargain.
The making of that bargain was between the Dominion on the one side
nnd the is'anil on the other.
Three year, before, In 1870. the prov-
Ince of Manitoba entered contederaUon.
The terms in thiB inatance were on the
lines of representation by population.
The agreement between British Columbia and the Dominion at the Ume of
confederation was that the province
should not have less than six members,
but If the population Increased the representation was to be Increased so that
the Manitoba act and the British Columbia act were before them when discussing the terms of union with the
In 1864 the island said that it was
not willing to come ln with five members, lt wanted six. In 1873 the province was entitled to five members and
the question now was whether lt should
be five or six. The contrast between
Prince Edward Island and British Columbia, only two years before, the latter not being entlUed to six membera
shows that the agreement with the
Island wae a bargain for the representation as lt stood at that time and the
population at that time.
On tbe questions of law, tit all events
the contract ha. been interpreted
asa'nst them, and it had been decided
thnt they have no legal claim to that
which Ib now a.ked by a Judgment of
the supreme court and afterward by
the Judicial committee of the privy
council. Interpretation of the B. N. A.
act on the term, of the union was that
Prince Edward I.'and must be subject
as all the other provinces are to repre-
sen'atlon by population.
The city ot Winnipeg had a uarger
population than the Island, yet it shad
only one representative In the house of
commons. Tthere wa. not likely to be
any substantial Increase tor many
year, 'to come In the population of the
Island, and the likelihood was that the
repreaentatk 1 should be still further
reduced. The probability la that it '
might be reduced to one. It It should
be ,,-iped out altogether or reduced to
one an occasion would arise when an
anpeal might be made to the mother
of parliaments to have the conatltuUon
amended. The question before the
house was whether thla should be done
for one member. If that were done,
there would be an appeal for New
Brunswick and Nova Scotia were entirely In the same position. If this
was done the principle of representation hy population declared by the Quebec conference would at once be put
an end to.
Sproule thought the other provinces
would not be averse to tbe maritime
provinces retaining tho representation
they had. W. F. McLean thought they

The report ot the department of public works for the flacal year ending laat
June, Just down, deals with the enormous expenditure of 19,347,627. The
deputy minister speaks proudly of "The
great expansion of our branch of the
administration, inasmuch ts the t*>
penditure during the year has reached
a total of nearly ten millions, while ten
years ago the expenditure was barely
two million.." Mr. Oobell says that
the "progression" has been more than
a million a year during the last three
yeors, and that the Increase Is most 1
marked "In the construction of the public buildings."
Undoubtedly this ls so. The government Ib lavish ln erecting buildings,
some ot which fall down before they
are finished, many of which are not
needed at all, while all appear to be
constructed without much regard to
business principles.
Turning t(rthe report of the chief
architect one naturally looks to see
what he has to say about the Laurler
tower and the western block extension
of which it forms a part. We find in
the architect's statement ot Ottawa
work how many coat hooka were put
up ln each building, how many desks
were oiled ln each establishment. We
learn tbat nine chairs were repaired
in the census office, that two window
sashes were placed in the privy council
building, that three step ladders were
supplied to the auditor general, "that
a cushion each was supplied to the auditor-general's and secretary of state's
department," that three shades for
lamps were furnished to the department ot the Interior, that eight doors
were covered with cloth, several articles of furniture were oiled, with
much more ot the ume detailed Information. But concerning the structure
whereon $67,000 was paid last year,
which fell down when nearly completed
and was Investigated by a commutes,
of architects, who report-ad astonishing
negligence, -carelessness and Ignorance
on the part of the public officer, there
are only -three lines. The report merely
observe, that: "Thi. work, which was
described In my report of laat year ls
now completed. Plans, etc., prepared
and work supervised by this department   Contractor, George Goodwin."
This report 1. dated December 1, but
the fall of the Laurl.r tower occurred
last spring, and the Investigation wa.
completed long before the end of the
flacal year. The report ot the commission showed tbat a costly structure,
built within a few yards of the architect's office, under the eye of his own
staff, and dally seen by the minister
of public works, was constructed of
wretched material, badly pot together,
neither the stones, nor the rubble, nor
any part of the work such as Uie contract called for, and ln tact so badly
built that It did not stand until t he job
wan finished. On. might suppose that
a department which give, inch minute
report, of repair, to a chair, could find
something to say about such a Job as

Btatl.Uc. of la.t year', trade dispute,
tn Canada. The number given ls 198,
Involving a toss of 419,776 days' work.
The number which were terminated
waa 189. Including one which began
the previous year. Those who bave
been led by the self-advertising ot the
department of labor to auppaM that
this authority ha. settled most _\ the
troubles will* be surprised to learn that
only four of the disputes were settled
by 'conciliation.*' Not even all of these
were settled by ttie labor department,
for ln one case the mediator was the
ministerial association at Winnipeg.
The otber three were terminated
through the Intervention of the department, though In the most serious case
the setUement did not occur until the
strike bad been In progress nifte
months, and both parties were anxious
to end it. The great Hamilton strike
was settled three weeks after lt began
by the Ontario RaUway and Municipal
board. The archbishop ot Montreal
waa the peacemaker in another. case.
But nineteenth-twentieths of the troubles were -ended either by private negotiation btween the parties, or by the
replacement of the men, or by tbe men
.giving np aad returning to work, or by
the employer, granting their demands.
In all these cases, ae well as In the
long strikes that were finally settled byi
arbitration, there was enormous loss*,
amounting to at least a million dollars
in wages alone, and to large'sums by
Investor., to say nothing of the suffering aald inconvenience of the general
public, such aa -followed the coal-strike
ln the West or the street railway
trouble. The statement of the department of labor is the be��t answer
the minister of labor, who opposed Mr,
Borden's motion for a parliamentary
mvMtigatiou of labor questions. Mr.
Lemleux contended that his -department
was dealing successfully with labor
troubles and only required an amem
ment to the act to do all that -
necessary. But hi. own return shi
that Mr. Borden's statement of the ii
m-ense loss caused by strikes In Canada was below the mark, and that the
department Itself hsd done lea. to
meet the evil than even Mr. Borden
conceded. Three disputes settled by
the department out of 138, and thaw
only after long strikes, is not absolutely satisfactory.
The minister of railways has brought
down a part or the papers referring to
the purchase of land for Intercolonial
round houses at Halifax.   The returns
purport to be complete, but an examl
nation ot the papers shows thai '
or five Important communications,
eluding one from the sitting member
for Halifax to the general manager rf
the railway have been withheld.   It la
shown by then   papers   that ln 190S
the chief engineer, the engineer of construction and other technical officer,
decided on a site for this roundhouse.
This location was abandoned because,
as the general manager states, certain
business people ln Halifax objected to
It on the ground that a new settlement
wonld be built up out   ot   town, and
they would be deprived of trade with
the employee* of the shops and yards.
Then lt waa decided to build a rectangular engine   honae   at Richmond,
and plana were prepared on this understanding.   Mr. Henry C. Read, waa engaged to value the properties and aub-
mitted a report.    Thla   was   In 1>W.
Later   thi.   location was also
oned In favor of a site neaar ths
ootton factory.   This change waa recommended trom Ottawa aad agate Mr.
H. C. Read was -sent to value the prep-
erty .lso.   Though the deputy mlniater
nggested that the Intention of tin department be kept quiet until Mr. Um*.
Ilrieth, legal agent or the government,
should acquire the properties, It was
found that before the valuator arrlvtsd
Mr. Joseph R. Hendereon had pusehas-
ed from sll the otber owner, but two
the land whllch the government needed.
The government paid hlm ��45 per block
for hi. newly acquired land and Oat.
which he previously owned,    l��avtnK
him, lt Is said, a profit or 100 per M

The next question of first-class im-
ps*,rtnnce confronting the citizens of
Nelson is the need fssr a new public
school building, li has been suggested, and it is probably true, thai the
clly Is too near the statutory limit of
Its borrowing power to raise a sufficient anion.u lu that way. If sn. some
oihs-r means must be found. It is In-
tolerable that the best leaching staff
and the most Intelligent and public-
spirited board of school trustees in the
province should hoii) b- handicapped
by a school building which Is discreditable in appearance, unsanitary in all
s-nsous and Utterly Inadequate.
Apart from feelings of personal or
party triumph it is gratifying to reflect
lhat ib.- Judgment and iho laste of
lltilssh Columbia, ami especially nf Hs

H. B. Thompson of Victoria has few

Now that the provincial campaign Is
ovlt, and the city's power plant completed and in operation, the citizens of
Nelson may turn iheir attention again
tn ether matters affecting the welfare
of the capital of Kooteuny. The most
definite and urgent need is. of course,
a new ond edequate public -School building. Arrangements for that should lie
made without delay. After that the
campaign of publicity undertaken by
the 20,000 club should be renewed and
prosecuted with all possible vigor. The
year 1907 promises to lie a banner year
fnr the province generally. It only requires energy and unity of effort to no-
euro to Nelson her fair share of the
general progress and prosperity. In
mining, in lumberinng and in agrirul-
turc the outlook is roseate, and in all
those resources Nelson's tributary territory Is not less richly endowed thau
any oilier part of tho province. It is
only necessary that Kootenny's wealth
should be fully and definitely told, to
attract hither the best elements of the
popn'a'ion of the rest of Cnuadn,
No political campaign ever waged in
.Nelson has been so free from party-
rancor or personal bitterness as the
rne concluded Saturday night last. No
Conservative will grudge Dr. Hall hiB
hard- arned victory, and no Liboral
has nny sentiments but respect and regard for John A. Kirkpatrick. Frank
Phillips a'so has lost no friends by his
manly bearing throughout the cam-
palim. The civic unity and harmony
:-hown by the election of mayor and
aldermen by acclamation, has been further cemented by the clean and gentlemanly though hard campaign fought
during the last month.

Two of the government daya this
week were occupied in dismissing Mr.
Fisher*? hill for the Inspection of fodd
packing esiablishm.ius. It was ascertained by a vigorous cross-examination
that the minister intends to appoint
forty-five Inspectors at a salary of
$1200 a year with n.i Inspector of inspectors at $2000. Mr. Fisher admitted
oher probable expenses bringing the
coa of adn.lnlBtrat.ou up to $75,000 a
year, but the opinion was freely expressed that the measure would reach
three times that amount before the people were done with It Tbe Inspeqturs
would unly examine operations of fat*
torles whose products are exported
from the Dominion or shipped beyond
the province. So. while the Canadian
consumer will maintain the army of Inspector*, bis own food will not be Inspected.

Much interest was felt here in Thursday's by-election at St. Antolue's. Mont-en), for the local legislature. The re-
1 im of a Conservative for a scat pre-

show that ihe Conservative cause is
Mill strong in tbe business centres of

n dun Cod that Mr Gait's majority was
960 and that his opponent, a brilliant
Liberal lawyer, bad barely saved his
deposit, the occurrence was held to be
n good omen for the party in the future. Much attention bas beeu paid to
