TALE OF FRAUDS
Long List of Bogus Bids
Accepted at Ottawa
DESPOILING THE WEST
Immense Tracts of Valuable Timber
Land Given Away to Liberal
Members and Friends.
Ottawa. Feb. 29.���When Mr. Lake
moved for an investigation into timber
limits in the West he opened a discussion on two questions; why the interior
department determined to keep out of
sight original timber limit applications,
and what was the identity of the Imperial Pulp Company. Close examination of the documents showed the reason for concealment. There was double
dialing on the face of them. It was
ft.und that a half million dollar property had been tendered for by one person sending In different names, and
that the real beneficiary was the Imperial Pulp Company, whoever thar
might   be.
No record of this company's existence
could be found elsewhere than in the
lands department at Ottawa. It had
no p)aee of business and no members
who disclosed themselves. The subordinates In the department, knowing
less than their chiefs, had quite a chase
to iiiiil sdme one to arrange the assignments. Finally^ the Rank of Ottawa,
through which payment was made, gave
some assistance in the man-hunt, and
the lawyer who put in the two tenders
remained as the representative of the
Imperial Pulp Company, which was supposed   to he  a third   concern.
The Imperial Pulp Company carried
on other dealings with the department
from its place of concealment. Dr.
Roche informed the house that this concern was the only one ever able to obtain timber limits in competition with
Mr. Burrows, M. P., brother-in-law of
Mr. Sifton. While Mr. Slfton was minister Mr. liurrowa obtained about twenty limits, usually on bids a mere fraction above the next man. He always
came out a little ahead except when
the Imperial Pulp Company was another bidder. Members asked who it
could be that the department preferred
lo Mr. Sifton's brother-in-law. For one
valuable limit Mr. Burrows made a low-
bid of $6,057. There was another offer
of 181,161, Right on top of that came
the Imperial Pulp Company's bid ot
$31,575���just high enough and a little
lo spare. In the same way the collusive
tender disclosed by the original papers
was a mere fraction above the highest
Independent bid, and this limit also
went to the Imperial Pulp Company.
The Imperial Pulp Company owns
475 square ifR'S, or 304,000 acres of
the best lands In the weal, except perhaps those captured by brother-in-law
Hurrows. Mr. liurrowa la 3 square
milea ahead, and the two concerns hold
two-fifths of Ihe whole Western timber
lands so far captured for speculating
purposes. The Imperial Pulp Company
has nearly the whole reserve supply ot
the region on which Manitoba will soon
be dependent for lumber. It haa 300
square miles containing the reserve of
timber north of the district about Edmonton on the North Saskatchewan.
This company and Mr. UttrrowB have
obtained the monopoly of the district
which the Canadian Northern will open
up on tho Athabase. The two concerns
have gathered In everything around the
Yellow lleud Paaa to he opened up by
the Grand Trunk Pacific, tt is not
surprising that the question should be
asked over and over ugain���who la the
Imperial Pulp Company, .to w.hlch the
Interior department under Mr. Sifton
waa   bo  generous? ���
Mr. Ames asked, "who are the imperial I'ulp Company? We would like
to know who are the shareholders?
Where Is their place of business and
who are profiting by the transactions?"
He pointed out that they had no mills,
I hat they bought their land for a mere
bagatelle, that they seemed to understand how high to bid In order to get
limits, that they were holding them as
a speculation and Btood to make several
millions. Mr. McCarthy deacribed the
concern us "another mysterious company  of  whom  we  can  receive  no  in
formation," and as " a homeless company, with a poat office box at Winnipeg, controlling *300 square miles of
limber on the North Saskatchewan."
Mr. Uoyce wondered whether members
of the Imperial Pulp Company were like
those of the North Atlantic Trading
i ompany resolved to commit suicide,
if Ihey should be discovered. Dr. Roche
found that the Imperial Pulp Company
had either a litllu more pull than brother-in-law Hurrows or else was acting
in agreement with him. Mr. Lulor asked: "la the government afraid to tell
us who compose the Imperial Pulp Company? Are they members of this house?
Do they belong to (he same crowd who
have been getting bo much graft from
this government in connection with
limber transactions and land deals in
the West?" Mr. Bergeron wanted to
know: "What is the imperial Pulp
Company? Why should I not believe
that it is cum posed of members of parliament and why Is the country not
entitled to know?" Mr. Staples mentioned the names of the "Big Four" who
are quoted in tho Weat in. connection
with lumber concessions. To ail these
questions no answer was given. Mr. Oli-
ev in his speech only mentioned the
name of the Imperial Pulp Company,
and Mr. Sifton by whom the concessions were granted, made a long speech
without mentioning the concern at all.
Then came the statement made at
Edmonton on February 20th by Dr. H.
L. MclnnlB. He declared that the president of the Imperial Pulp Company
was an Edmonton man, and that the
managing director was the Hon. Clifford Sifton. The secretary was William Sifton and the treasurer Miss
Jones, a Toronto stenographer. If this
statement was accurate it explained
everything. It accounted, with other
things, for the refusal of the government to permit the appointment of a
committee to Investigate the Western
land deals. Mr. Sifton says it is not
true as to him, but does not refer lo
the near relative mentioned as secretary. And Mr. Sifton supports the government  In  refusing the  Investigation.
No one who has followed the proceedings in the public accounts committee and the house needs a poet to
tell him that "all things are not what
they seem." Scarcely anything In the
expenditure statement in tho record of
concessions and contracts *rf what it
appears on the face of the return. Public business generally is now done under an elaborate system. Take the
following as a few samples, following
that of  the   Imperial  Company.
Applications for coal areas were dealt
with by the department under names
of 235 persons, each of whom asked
for a full limit of .320 acres. These
were bell boys, chamber maids, bootblacks and other boys and girls around
Ottawa. The real person was A. E.
Caldwell who was after the whole 75,-
000   acres.
Mr. W. H. Nolan, who seemed to get
the Moose Lake timber limits turned
out to be some one else who had borrowed  Mr.   Nolan's name.,
There Is a Sturgeon Lake Lumber
Company which has been treated handsomely In the matter of timber limits.
It is another name for J. G. Turlff, M.
P., who was commissioner of lands
when the limits were distributed: A.
J. Adamson. M. P., his brother-in-law;
George McCraney, M. P., with another
relative of Mr. Turlff, and a Dominion
lands agent.
The Penjetanguishene Dredging Company Is a longe name for Dr. Spohn,
ex-M.  P., and  former office holder.
The Owen Sound Dredging Company
stands for Hon. A. G. MacKay, formerly of the Ross government, and now leader of the Ontario opposition.
The Great Lakes Dredging Company
is the alias of Mr. Bowman, M. P. P.,
and members of the famny of James
Conmee, M. P.
If we scratch the Dominion Dredging
Company we find the family of the sitting member for Ottawa.
The corporate name "Sub-Target

with the minister of militia, concealed
the minister's private secretary and H.

ABE HUMMEL'S FUTURE
i
Disgraced New York Lawyer's Term in
Prison   i*  Over���Can   Never
I ractice Again.
New York, Feb. 29.���Abe Hummel,
who has bt. n sojourning on Blackwell's
Island for :early a year as a result of
the part l.a played in the sensational
Dodge-Mo Be divorce case, is about to
emerge from his retreat a free man. He
has been an exemplary prisoner during
his stay on the island and this has shortened his year's sentence to ten months.
His term will therefore come to an end
two weeks hence.
Various stories are current as to
Hummel's plans for the future. His
family and friends have advised him to
go abroad and remain until the events
of the recent past have been forgotten
in a measure by the public. But Hummel is a man who has lived on publicity
ever since he landed in New York from
his native Boston years ago. Publicity
is as breath to his nostrils, and it is
not likely that he will be content to remain very long out of the limelight.
He will not be able to resume hia
practice as a lawyer on account of
having been diabarred. Furthermore
the revelations in hia own ease and also
in the Thaw case in which he was indirectly involved would make it impossible for him to regain his former standing in the profession, even if the disbarment were removed. Conaequently
the shrewd little lawyer, will be forced
to find a new field in which to exercise
his undeniable talents. It Is said that
he intends to become a real estate
broker and an operator. He will be
possessed of a considerable fortune of
his own. And many of his friends and
clients of former years will doubtless
Bud it to their Interests to lend him a
helping hand if he needs  it.
Notwithstanding the reports circulated some months ago that he was In
a dying condition Hummel will leave
prison in bettor health than he has been
for years. The fresh air of his Island
retreat, the wholesome food and, above
all, the removal from the pleasures and
dissipations of the Great White Way-
have done wonders for the little lawyer
In restoring him to health. It is true
that he las been lodged In the hospital
and has enjoyed all the privileges and
Immunities of a hospital patient. But he
was never In better health in his life
than he Is today.
Although pictures have appeared in
the sensational press showing Hummel
in the atripes of a Blackwell's Island
prisoner, no one on the island has seen
him in that garb. Under some kind of
an arrangement with somebody the little
lawyer has been allowed to keep on the
garb of Broadway.
Another fiction Is that he has been
employed In the bake shop of the prison
or broken stone on the pile. But, as a
matter of fact, the hardest work he has
done since he waa sentenced, is to play
pinochle with some of hia fellow patients and to read the daily papers,
which he received regularly from his
relatives and friends.
Hummel's most constant visitors are
his nephew, Able Kaffenberg, and his
two sisters, one of whom, it is said, Is
at the prison hospital as often as the
prison rules permit or as often as they
can be Btretched to permit, and it Is
common talk among the other prisoners
I hat the rules are very clastic where
Hummel is concerned.
STILL HOLD FORT
Opposition Will Not Yield
to Fielding
INSISTING  ON SIGHTS
Continuous Session of Commons Will
End at Midnight���Shielding
Brodear's Department.
Ottawa, Feb. 29.���At 10 a. m. the
house is still sitting with every prospect
of sitting until midnight unless a compromise is effected. At 8 a. m. Fielding
took charge of the government forcea
and Foster of the opposition forcea. The
longest continuous sitting in the history
of the Canadian parliament occurred in
1896 over the Manitoba school bill, and
lasted from 3 o'clock Monday until midnight the following Saturday, but this
sitting must end before Sunday seta in.
Monday is private members' day and
on Tuesday government orders can be
taken up, but ministers are at liberty to
bring in any orders they wish.
At noon there was little indication ol
the house rising before midnight Bennett (East Slmcoe) and Dr. Barr (Duf-
ferin) held the attention of the house
all morning. Ten or twenty members,
stand by the guns all the time and relays go home for a respite, while the
faithful few remain and the chamber
wears an unwonted appearance, reminding old timers of the franchise debate
of 1885.
Brigadier General Otter has under
consideration the offer ot the Imperial
authorities of the command of the 5th
infantry brigade at Aldershot, but it la
hardly thought by his friends that he
would'care to leave Canada even to take
up so Important an appointment as the
offer involves. Should he refuse the
offer there is a poesibility of his succeeding Col. Vidal as Inspector general
of the Canadian forces.
It is expected that one more day's
sitting of the commons committee on
banking and commerce will conclude
the taking of evidence .in relation to the
government insurance bill. A sub-committee of nine members will then be
selected from the banking and commerce committee to consider the evidence presented and to agree upon
amendments to the bill as seem to them
desirable.
The trustees of the Stanley Cup have
addressed an open letter to the presidents of the various senior hockey
leagues stating that after the present

to play in any challenge match for the
Stanley Cup any player who has appeared in more than one team during a season whether of his own or any other
league. They state that during this
season promiscuous buying and selling
of players among the senior hockey

have taken little notice.

JUDGES   AND    LEGISLATURE.
The language of two judges of th*��
mjiremu court oT British Columbia has
bean the rotajeot of tUscusiioa In  the
legislature. It lb rsportsd thai OB refer-
uuce of Chief Justice Hunter's decision
under the Natal Act, Mr. Justice Irving
ramarked that "only a few politiclani
were interested in the result, and that
Air. Justice Clement described the act
iih  "disloyal."
The matter was brought to the attention of the house by Mr. Hawthor&th-
Walt*. J. A. MacdoiiaJd and his follow
ifig defended the judges, although they
had voted for the act which is called
dtMoval.
Of the affair Attorney General Bowser said:
'���Knowing Mr. Justice Clement as I
do, I cannot conceive of his giving expression to such language, n he was
guilt? of making the statement it was
certainly a very ill-advised remark and
one that Is not justified. It is ulso a
serious reflection on this house which
passed (.lie Immigration Act unanimous
ly, and of course wished Us constitutionality adjudicated upon at once.
���'But, as I have already stated, 1 cannot conceive of ihut gentleman not only
using such poor taste, hut offending
against all the proprieties which appertain to the occupants of such an exalted position.
"Ab the minister In control of the ad
ministration of Justice, I regret exceedingly thut the language used by Mr.
Justice Clement, in his Judgment on the
Immigration Act, should make it necessary for any honorable member of this
house to feel it bis duty to bring It to
the attention of the legislature.
"My duty, of course," added the attorney-general, "is to protect the Judiciary'  bo  far  as   1   consistent!}   can  in
carrying out our joint duties in connection with the administration of justice;
hut I must admit that the recent actions
Of some of the members of the judiciary
In this province are making my course
a very difficult one."
The Province closes a comment on
ihe incident with the following:
"The remarks made by Mr. Justice
clement yesterday, at Victoria, In regard to the Natal Act, possessed more
of a political than a judiciary complexion. They were, we consider, quite
uncalled for, and Mr. Justice Clement
would have displayed far more good
taste had he not evinced such eagerness
to defend the action of the Bowers which
gave him his appointment. Mr. Justice
Clement is the most recent addition
to the judiciary of the province and
perhaps the gluw of gratitude he felt at
his selection has not yet cooled, but he
would do well to be less demonstrative
than be has been on occasions, or his
utterances when he does wish to be
emphatic may lose something of their
weight      H    may   be  found   that       the
Privy Council, to which the case he was
so cocksure about, now goes, will take
a different, and a larger view of it  than
that, held by Mr. Justice Clement or the
justice department  at   Ottawa."
COSGROVE     ROASTED.
The   Cranbrook    Herald   Apologizes   for
Boosting   Ganthony.
now. But this man Ganthony, patronized by His Majesty the King���well. Edward the VII. is more easily amused
than his amorous predecessor King
Henry VIII. It makes one shudder to
think what might have happened to Ganthony if he had appeared before "Bluff
King Hal," in cap and bells. Ganthony
is on a par with the entertainers sup-
i<lie.l by Wm. Whitely and the army
and navy stores at two guineas a night
to amuse a children's party. Mr. Cos-
grove, because be has a cinch, is using
it to bring poor shows to Cranbrook
and other places in the west. This is
distinctly unfair to theatre managers,
bi cause if a good thing did come
through no one would buy tickets, because they have been bitten too often.
If the managers of the western opera
bouses are wise they will cut out Mr.
CosgroVe at the earliest possible date.
And right here the Herald desires to
apologise to the public for all the good
words it has said for Mr. Ganthony. The
Herald was misled.

LENTEN SEASON BEGINS
The   Yearly   Period   of  Abstinence   and
Devotion���Rite of Confirmation���
Tomorrow's   Services.
Tomorrow will the Sunday next before Lent, called Qulnquageslma, because it la the fiftieth day before
Easter. It Is also St. David's Day, St.
David being the patron saint of Wales.
Tuesday will be Shrove or Mardl Gras,
and Wednesday Ash-Wednesday, the
first day of the season of Lent.
Lent is the annual season of abstin-
ancf and special devotion, instituted In
commemoration of Christ's forty days
in the wilderness of fasting and close
c mimunion with the Father. Throughout the Catholic world. In the Greek.
Roman and Anglican communions. It is
marked by a refraining of. public
pleasure seeking and merry-making and
by more frequent services of public and
private devotion.
It Is not generally regarded as a survival of the asceticism of the Middle
Ages, which regarded the world as a
place always to be shunned. Observance
of Lent is not inconsistent with the
fullest enjoyment of social pleasures at
other times. It is a short period of the
year set apart voluntarily by Christians
for closer study of spiritual things, for
self-examination, and for reflection on
the meaning aud purpose of the Incarnation and Atonement. The virtue of
Lenten observance depends entirely on
this, that it is a voluntary renunciation
for a while, and for a high purpose, of
the ordinary pleasures of life.
Tomorrow evening in St. Saviour's
church the Lord Bishop of New Westminster and Kootenay will administer
the apostolic rite of Confirmation or
"laying on of hands," so called to distinguish it from the other laying on of
hands at the ordination of priests.
Confirmation means the receiving of
the Holy Ghost. The administration of
the rite is twice described by St. Luke
in the Acts of the Apostles, and once
by the writer of the epistle to the Hebrews, and there is clear record of its
continuous administration by the church
from the time of the apostles to the
present day.
There are differences of use in the
various branches of the church. In the
Greek communion it is administered
immediately after Baptism, in the Roman communion at about the age of
seven years, in the Anglican communion
at sbout the age of fifteen, which is
considered the age of moral responsibility.
The purposes of Confirmation are two
fold. It is the endowment of the one
confirmed with the gifts of the Holy
Spirit for responsible Christian life, In
answer to prayer and in fulfilment of
the promises of Christ, and it means
the taking over by the candidate of the
undertakings given on bis behalf by his
sponsors in Baptism.
It is recorded of Calvin that he
once voiced his regret that the rite of
Confirmation had been abandoned in
the establishment, under Presbyterian
polity, of the reformed churches of
Northern and Western Europe.

Masons' Ball.
The ball given in the Alice roller
rink last night by the Masons of Nelson
was a fitting conclusion to the series of
splendid public balls which have been
held in Nelson this season. The decorations were elaborate and very tasteful.
The Masonic emblem. In electric lights,
suspended from the orchestra's cage,
had a very fine effect. The photographs
of the past masters of the lodge, prettily
draped, were disposed round the walls
and attracted much admiring comment.
An excellent programme of dance music
was furnished by Irwin's orchestra. The
programme w-as begun pretty promptly
a few minutes after nine, and waB all,
including live extras during supper and
four at the end, concluded before three.
The supper was one of the best ever
served in connection with a dance in
Xelson and the arrangements were he-
J onii piaise. About 400 guests, or rather
more, were served In three divisions
will.out any hurry, crowding or discomfort. No outside assistance in supervision was required, the committee arranging everything. The bowling alley
was patronized by many of the non-
dancing men but those who danced did
not care to miss any of the music. The
committee to whose energy, foresight
and skill the splendid success of the
function are due, was composed ot D.
O. Kurtz, G. W. Steele,- P. W. Gordon,
A. Carrie, W. H. Deacon, G. Hale, W. S.
I'earcy, chairman. The committe acknowledges its indebtedness to Dr.
Arihur for Invaluable assistance.
