. Winnipeg, Nov. 19.���The practical
working under present conditions of the
clauses ol the Maniu.l.a drain Act. regulating the distribution of cars was frankly discussed yesterday by William
While, second vic-president of the C.
P. H. Mr. Whyte claimed lhat abuses
of the act were seriously hampering the
railway in its efforts to move tbe crop
expeditiously and were, in reality, defeating the main purpose of the law.
"The great weakness of the Manitoba
drain Act." said Mr. Whyte, is that its
Cramers bad evidently been so strongly
Seised wilh the idea of protecting other
grain growers against railway com-
pantos and elevator oi.er_.Uirs, thut they
evidently overlooked the rights of the
latter to be protected against abuses of
privileges by tbe grain growers. In
any event., it Is certain lhat no adequate
provision was made which would give
railway companies such protection, and
as the years go by the original spirit ot
the act, which was intended to be simply a check on tbe elevator operators, is
I.ring more and more abuse hy those ii
was destgned to protect. F roin year to
rear the farmer has discovered new
w.ak spots in Its provisions of which he
may take advantage with impunity to
his own Individual advantage, no doubt,
but with equal certainty to the dlsa.i-
vantage of tbe farming community as a
"This season these abuses have culminated ln such a serious delay to railway equipment that Its evil effects are
apparent to all. so much so that one or
two prominent citizens and farmers
have complained in requesting the ware-
bouse commissioner, if possible. U> suspend the Grain Act temporarily to al
low elevators to gel a larger proportion
of the cars, so that they may be enabled to get their grain out more
"When 11 is pointed out that .luring
the season of 1905 tbe Canadian Pacific
was able lo get X2 per cent of the cars
available at stations loaded per day.
for tbe season of MOB tills bad dropped
to S3 per cent., and thai this season we
will average under fifty per cent, of
available cars loaded per day, the evil
effects of the act become apparent. In
other words it Is apparent from the
above figures thut lt Is taking this season ll'," cars to get the same result that
100 accomplished two years ago. This
downward tendency can be ascribed to
no other cause than to the working of
the act.
���Innumerable examples of this gross
abuse of the act. or more properly
speaking of the working of the act. tor
it provides no restrictions that will pre-
vriil   Ihrsr abuses, might   he given;  two
���,-  thr samples  will  serve lo  tllus-
irute. however. At one town In Sas
katehewan something over 800 appltcn-
Hoiib bave been made for cars, lt was
known by all Hint a large  percentage
or the names were fictitious. In fact It
was common lulk that the order book
contained the names of moat or the
school children In the district. The
agent, in conformity with tbe Grain
Act. was compelled to wade through
thiB sen or names getting a proportion
id the cars loaded, but In many cases
placing the cars uselessly, only to cancel the order where cars had been held
quite a length of time. Another caBe.
needless to say, cost the railway company money. The situation finally became so acute that the warehouse commissioner was asked to Investigate the
matter by one or two bona fide applies*
cants. He did so and many or the
names which had been used to pad the
order book were cancelled. No prosecutions lollowed, however, as the practice
was so widespread It would have Involved the whole community, ln fact
It Boomed to be the feeling that if the
cnt.e had come before a jury at that
point there would not bo found enough
men themselves Innocent ol the
to try the case.   At another yol
In the last few days, a car was allotted
and placed at the loaded platform. The
applicant on being advised in the usual
way that the car had heen placed for
him, threw one sack of grain into the
car, thuB complying with tbe clause ol
the act which provides that the applicant must declare hi; intention and
ability io load bis car, and must commence to load within twenty-four
hours, the placing of u sack of grain ln
the car, the applicant claimed, was 'commencing to load.' The car was not completed until bIx days later. The above
is a common practice and many instances could be cited.
"The grain producing area west of
Winnipeg is covered by four superintendents' districts. A check made within the last few days, of one of these districts only, showed that In one day's report a total of twenty-two cars had been
delayed in loading from two to six days.
When It is considered that the same
thing is happening daily in each of the
other rour districts, the delay to the
railway companies' rolling stock from
this source must be appreciated.
"Again, when the farmer has cut his
crop," continued Mr. Whyte, "he figures
thut he will probably start to thresh at
a certain date, anil he Immediately goes
to the railway station and puts down his
name for a car for this date. He may
not thresh for weeks, ln the meantime,
however, he will probably go to tbe railway station, find that the car has been
allotted, and after being there for the
required length of time his application
is cancelled. He Immediately puts down
his name Tor another. This performance
may be legally repeated an Indefinite
number of times and the railway company has absolutely no redress."
Government of Saskatchewan  Will   Not
Take   Advantage  of   Law   to
Seat Turgeon.
-Retina, Nov. 19.���Hon. A. J. Calder.
minister of education, states that while
under the Haultain election law Attorney-General Turgeon would be entitled to take his Beat in the legislature
as member for Prince Albert city, the
government would not take advantage
of the law but would postpone the calling of the house until such time as the
appeals in the Prince Albert election
case have been disposed of by a supreme
court judge.
For this reason and in view of the
fact that the health of Mr. Scott forbids
staying throughout the winter months,
the ministers have prevailed upon the
premier to agree to the postponement
of the session until March.

The Phoenix Pioneer is Not Despondent
Over the Outlook.
The Phoenix Pioneer in the course of
a lengthy review of the situation in the
Boundary says:
"While, of course, there are doubting
Thomases still resident in the Boundary, and some who think the mines
will remain closed for many months,
those who hav.- most at stake and are
perhaps best conversant with the potentialities of the Boundary and its present
development, are confident that the f-lt-
uation will right itself in due time. How
long that will require cannot, of course,
be guessed at now. It depends u-most
eutirely on the copper market, not o..,y
on the price but also on how Boon the
copi>er surplus will be absorbed. At tlie
present rate it does not appear as though
the time would be extended to any-
great length. It has cost the m>>iing
companies thousands of dollars ,'ist lo
cease o|>erations, und will cost much to
remain idle any length of time. It Is
fair to assume, therefore, that, when
conditions are propitious, a resumption
will take place."

West park or on the city hall grounds.
It is to be full size, built in marble or
bronze on a stone pedestal.

King's Physician Orders Sir Henry
������pM-Bannerman To Take
Change and Rest
I_.iiiiik>ii. Nov. 19.���Sir Thomas Barlow,
physician lo King Edward's household,
made a length examination of the
premier. Sir Henry Campbeli-Bannerman at Downing street today, and an
official announcement was subsequently
issued to the effect that the patient's
condition was satisfactory, but that in
view of the approaching session of parliament, it is necessary that he should
have some weeks' complete change and .
rest. The premier, therefore, is going
abroad almost immediately. He haa
not been the same man since his wife
died last year, and his recent acute attack of heart trouble at Bristol was* a
signal that his political activities bave
overtaxed his  physical  strength.
lt would be no surprise tc the friends
of the premier, who is 71 years old, if
much of his parliamentary work daring
the coming session ls delegated to his
colleagues in the cabinet and the rumors of his possible retirement next year
from the leadership of the Liberal party
are revived, as In view of his onslaught
on the House of Lords it ls not Ihought
likely that he will care to accept a
Chinese  Laundry and Tenement House
Wrecked by Dynamite.
New York, Nov. 19.���A dynamite bomb
which had been thrown from a passing
elevated train, threw consternation into
the 1G families who occupied tenements
on the several floors above Wing Hlng's
laundry at 362 Third avenue early today. The lower part of the building was

from the rocking building. Many windows in the neighborhood were shattered and several pedestrians were bowled
over ln the street by tbe concussion.

that the bomb was hurled by an enemy
of the Chinese laundryman, whose shop
front was badly damaged by the explosion. Wing Hlng, however, declares
he has no enemies and that no one had
any reason to seek ln Injure him. He

has Inoreased  by  $38, ,000.    Bul  the

of about $3,600,00 0. The despatch la

It fur the hi-ading. "Canada Ii Qrow-
Ing Itlcher," belongs to our contemner
ary alone.
It Ls an Interesting problem In com
marotal arithmetic: "How to spend
more than on.. earnB and still grow
richer." So far as we know no Indl
vldual has yet succeeded in solving il
li is undoubtedly true that Cunad
lans are attaining to an ever fullei
knowledge or th*. potential wealth ol
their country, and that knowledge li
being spread to other lands, with n
suits that are fairly certain to lead
to more rapid development of our re
sources than In the pant. In that lensi
the realization of Canada's wealth is
coming nearer, and the country might
be said, figuratively, to be richer then
fore than It wus a year ago. In th.
Hume sense a man who owns a gob!
mine might be said to grow richer aa
he comes nearer to the point of profit
utile shipments, although be may be In
debt for the melius of development lot
many months before be sells any ore.
Hut lhat is not the argument (rugges-
ted l.y our contemporary's comfortable
scare head. "Canada is (in.wing Richer." The only foundation tor the claim
is  ln  tbe  fuct thai   the total  volue  of
Imports ii.1 exports in greater. Apparently it i* Immaterial whether a man
��� arns or spends. So long as his sales
and purchases together show an in-
i . . he is growing richer. Canada':*
imports for the seven months in question exceed the exports by over $60,-
are only two ways by
which that is possible. Either we have
expended $60,  from a former surplus, nr we have mortgaged future earnings to the extent. In neither can we
be said to be growing richer.
Of course- if the excess ur imports
represent means of future development
and production, they may be considered remunerative expenditure, nnd.
onlj figuratively, may be said to bring
th.   realisation *��f our wealth nearer.
To Hike the example nf an individual:      One     year    he   arns   $1,600   and
spends $3,1  the sum of his earnings
and expenditure Is $3,500; the next
year be earns only $1,400, but he
spenda $3,500, the total Is $3,900 There
i !��� according to our contemporary's
logic, he is growing richer. Hla "volume of trade" has increased by $400.
The argument is nn mure absurd in
the ease of an Individual than of a nail, m: the absurdity is only more obvious.

$60,000,000 worth of goods more than
they have exported? How ls the excess
paid for as a matter of fact? The explanation can easily bo seen iu the increasing proportion of Canadian assets
owned abroad, by English and foreign
Of course that proportion is not formidable when we compare it with the
ultimate value of our yet untouched resources. There is no ground for alarm.
But the sooner Canadians recognize
that they are spending more than they
earn, and that they are paying for it by
alienating their assets, the better.
Of course it would be delightful il
one could grow richer by the easy and
pleasant process of spending more. If
our contemporary has really discovered
such a process he will earn the griui
tude of many men in Nelson by expounding It.
