Comment at Ottaw...
Ottawa, April 14. in the last full fiscal year reported the government of
Canada expended, for the benefit of agriculture, $518,9TC.
ln the same year expenditure charged to militia and defence was $5,594,-
It is a time of peace, and should be a
time of agriculture development.
Yet the government of Canada is
spending eleven dollars on the military
tor every dollar that is apent for the
encouragement of farming.
Such is the criticism made iu the-bud
get debate in parliament by Andrew
Itroder,  the member  for Dundas.
The civil service commission partly
explains the enormous militia expenditure, which amounted to 0A#8T7,SO0 in
the nine months ending March 31, 1907
t Auditor General's Report Q., p. 2., Tile
commissioners report that there are
more high paid officials on the militia
staff than in any other three or four
departments together. They say tbat
the headquarters" staff is sufficient for
a standing army of 100,000 men, whereas the permanent force numbers only
3,000, and the militia drills only a
Week in the year. Notice this list of
highly paid officers:
1 Minister tplus |S,&O0 indemnity $7,000
1  Deputy Minister 4,000
1 Accountant 2,800
1   Director   of   Contracts 2,500
1    Secretary 2,800
1   Chief of Staff :..  6,000

Appeal   Dismissed.
H. M. Macdonnld has been notified
fiom Vancouver that the appeal brought
hy the plaintiffs in the case of the Independent Lumber Company against
the Canadian Pacific Timber Company'
has been dismissed and the judgment
of the 11 itil judge affirmed. The case
was' tried at Vancouver some months
ago, ami was specially interesting as
it involved the question as to whether
an extra-provincial company, not licensed or registered in this provinci oould
enter Into a valid contract for carrying on any part of its business In British Columbia, Mr. Macdonald for the
defendants pleaded thai such a contract had no validity in this Jurisdiction. The further point, however, and
the one upon which the trial judge de-
aided was lhat Upon 'be facts in this;
particular case no agreement had  been
n ached  betwen the  parties.   The n-a
sens upon which the court of appeal
decided  have not  yet come to  hand.

Lennox, who, In a forcible and practical address, pointed out the weakness
of the government immigration methods^, showing that millions had been

and advertising, and for salaries and
expenses to former political workers

Senator McMullln has announced lhat
he caused his son to withdraw from a

not desire directly or through his family, concerned ia government contracts.
This in a severe reproach to some of his
companions, for instance:
Mr. Hobert Stewart, M. P., whose aon
has suddenly come to the front as one
of the Largest dredging contractors with
the government, and who himself, as
agent for a boiler inspection and insurance company, is receiving commission on from 70 to 80 policies on government property; James Conmee, M. P.,
whose family connections have a half
interest in the Great Lakes Dredging
Company, a large contractor with the
government; Mr. Grant, M. P., whose
brother is a large dredging contracttor;
Mr. Sifton. M. P., understood to be
largely interested In the company which
receives hundreds of thousands of dollars from the marine department for
fog signal apparatus; Sir Fred. Borden,
who promoted a subsidized cold storage business at St. John, and whose
son-in-law is in the concern; T. A. Burrows, ML* P., who bas obtained, in his
own and other names, vast timber areas by methods still under investigation; A. J. Adamson, M. P., made rich

leases and timber limits; Mr. McCraney

Kvidently the civil service commissioners ate right in describing the Canadian militia lyatam as "top heavy."
The house directed by the premier
nnd Uie minister of finance, rejected
the following motion proposed by Mr.
"Thai ai". supplies purchased for the
n e m| ill,; various departments of the
government should be procured on the
baall "I public lender and contract, under the direction Of a competent pur-
ehasing cninmlssKiu. aud with regard
primarily   to   quality   and   price."
Notloe of this motion was given be-
fore the report of the. royal commission, which condemned the present system of purchase and showed that It was
expensive, degrading and dishonest.
The government did not meet the motion squarely, but Mr. Fielding headed
it off with an amendment modifying
the' lirst part aud substituting "minis! ers res pons i hh> to parliament," is
isters responsible to v arliament," which
is merely an endorsement of the present
royal commission has so emphatically
Mr. Blaln proposed to add to Mr.
Fielding's amendment a further clause
"thut the present system of purchasing from middlemen and at excessive
prices should be immediately discontinued." This amendment was rejected, aud Mr. Fielding's endorsement of
the existing method sustained by the
regular government majority, except
that Messrs. Laverghe and Hohitaille,
Liberals, voted for the Hlain amend-
meiii. Thus the government and the
majority In parliament are still committed to the middlemen and to the
spoils  system
The budget debate closed on Thursday. Among excellent addresses delivered this week was one by Mr. Hroder,
previously mentioned; one by Mr. Armstrong, dealing particularly with the failure of the government either to find
additional markets abroad for farm produce, or to restore the Gorman market,
which has been lost, or to improve and
properly  operate  the  system    of    cold

Tuesday.   April   14,   1907.
It is patietic to observe how sir Wilfrid Laurjers promises are half kept.
It must be harrowing to the Liberal
press after thei; iaudatl )n of the "courage" of the prime minister in permit-
t.ng a department of his government
to be investigated. The courage was
only superficial. The coward stands revealed when we learn that Mr. Justice
Casseis' commission does not extend to
luve.-.tigating coirup'lon in any depart-
iii. nt. but merely to seeing whether the
report of J, M. Courtney and his associates was justified by facts. The Toronto News has humorously pointed out
that if Mr. Justice Casseis should confirm tin- irapoTl of Mr. Courtney, the
government may appoint another commissioner to confirm tils report, and
so  on  ad   infinitum.
Of course the procedure is absurd
But we have grown used to comic opera
at Ottawa. Nowhere else could the
same kaleidoscopic transformations
take place and allow a prime minister
to keep a straight face. That, In fact.
Is Sir Wilfrid Laurler's chief asset. In
his nearly twenty years of party leadership there is nothing that he has
done, or even aald, that is worth re
cordlug. Hut no circumstance can develop, however disgraceful, however
grotesque, that lie cannot meet with an
nh of dignified surprise, and gracious
tolerance. Never, in the history of any
self governing country ban a cabinet
beeu   so   ridiculously     transmogrified
But Sir Wilfrid, with his handsome
face and ingenue air, never sees any
occasion to apologize, he merely announces. If his own sense of humor is
ever touched there is no sign given to
parliament, or country. The premier
displays the solemnity, almosj^*of imbecility. For example, when the late
A. tl. Ulair was succeeded in the cabinet by II. R. Emmerson, it was hard
for a sane man to suppress a smile.
Blair was a man, with brains. Emiuerson was���well, he's politically dead
and not worth a definition. When Clifford Sifton was succeeded by poor
Frank Oliver the shock was even greater. But the matchless Sir Wilfrid smiled sweetly and graciously aa if nothing had happened.
Now, after seeing his courage lauded
by tbe Macbiue press from Easl to
West, lie is cajiable of teillng parlia-
uii nt that his virtuous promise ot an
open inquiry was misunderstood, that
he iliiln t mean that at all, lhat -Mr.
Uiodeur is reallj retaining Mr. justice
Cussels lo linil a defence, If he can,
against the damaging Impeachment presented by Mr. Courtney, Mr. Fyshe und
Mr.   Baziu.
The only crumb of cousolation for
decent Liberals iu the whole disgusting
affair was tlie apparently honest attitude of Sir Wilfrid. With an air of
innocence that made his poor worship-
pers forget lor a moment thai the responsibility Is all his, the guilt all his,
he promised tn let in the light on ��� very-
thing, N'jw they see thai Instead of an
��� Iii r searchlight, It Is to be a masked lantern and, even at that, to be
handled and directed by the burglar
Still. Sir Wilfrid is a grout man. It
requires a consummate aotor to Impress
even Llboruls with a sense of Injured
Innocence when one's hands ure reek-
rhg with lhe evidence of guilt. If Sir
Wilfrid Is not "partioepi crlmlnis" with
Mr. Brodeur, Ur, Oliver nnd the others
���even now we haven't the heart to associate him with Sir Fred. Borden���lie
at least knows all their guilt and goes
bail for them to a hypnotized electorate.
And so the matter stands. The promise of a genuine inquiry into the civil
service was a deliberate, malicious and
impudent lie. The "courage" was not
there���not enough even to lie boldly.
The lie is swallowed by the premier
but with such a pretty grace that we
are in danger of hearing next a euiogy
on his dignity and sweetness.
Hon. A B. Aylesworth was near the
front rank of Canadian lawyers��� not
o:' course with McCarthy, Osier, and
the Blakes, but well up. In parliament
and on the hustings he is the most ridiculous failure of recent times. Even
Lard-shell Liberals could not refrain
Horn smiling at his attack on the Family Compact, belated to the extent of
Sixty-Six years. His latest 'break'' Is
worse.    Of it  the  Montreal  Star  says:
"Hon. Mr. Ayiesworih's reference to
the Tory goats' in the civil service
was unfortunate one. If there are any
goais' in the service after twelve years
of Liberal rule, it will hardly do to excuse Weir presence there by calling
them -Tory.' In fact, in dealing with
lhe civil service, what is wanted is
mat lis members shall not be known
by lheir party tags at all; but as good
or bad servants'���men to be trusted
and men whose record is noi trust-
Inspiring, This civil service house-
cleauing is not tu be accomplished
by any man who winks constantly of
we party proclivities of We men on
tin" staff. He should lorget this side
ot We question as entirely as he can.
He should rejoice neither over the
clearing oi Liberal sheep" nor the condemnation of 'Tory goals.' Fartyism
and an ils works should be banished
finally from lhe civil service, and no
man should be either appointed, promoted, kepi or dismissed because of
nis previous political associations. Nor
should Uie question be approached in
this spirit on lhe hustings. As we
should nut hear lhe government unfairly attacked because of failures in
We civil service which the report of
.u own commission has revealed; so
we should noi hear a minister strive
lo avert legitimate responsibility by
talking of   Tory goats.' "

When You Buy Fruit Land
DON'T be attracted by cheaper.  Inferior or  Inaccessible lands  which exist ln the  Kootenay, as elsewhere
���but get tlie  best.    Take advantage of a double selection.
1, Our selection  was  made Willi the  utmost care at a time when we had the whole district lo pick from.
2. Your   selection���made   from ours���thus you get the benefit of a double  and  cumulative selection.
FURTHERMORE,    remember that to be successful tbe following five qualities are absolutely essential:
(1).    Title;    (2).    Soil;   (3). Water;   (4). Accessibility;   (0). Transportation.

Prize Offered  by C.  W.  Busk���Meeting
of Fair Directors.
Perhaps the most interesting feature
of yesterday afternoon's meeting of the
Fair directors was President C. W.
Busk's offer of a prize for the hest
floral decoration in a window of a Nelson business house from May 15th to
the time of judging which was purposely left Indeterminate.
The meeting was held in the city

Emory, VV. W. lieer, H. Selous, T. O.
Procter. J. IB. Annable, James John-
sione, and J. A. Kirkpatrick. The minutes of the last monthly meeting were
read aud   approved.
The secretary reported having written Sir Thomas Shaughuessy, for
instructions as to the conditions of the
awarding of hia cup, and read Sit
Thomas' reply, which, in effect, gives
the directors an absolutely free hand,
it was resolved lhat the cup should
be awarded for individual exhibits ot
fruit and vegetables, any other articles
included to count for decorative value
A small account was passed and ordered  paid.
The secretary was Instructed to advertise for tenders for booth privileges. '
The report of the fruit committee
was adopted with the exception of the
list of prizes for peaches which was
ordered  back for revision.
A committee was struck to secure
cieditable exhibits of all the products
of the district, the committee consisting of Secretary D. C. McMorris, C.
G. Broadwood, VV. A. Anstle, W. G.
