tho government from boodler*, was a
grand boodling operation. A:r. Ilrudeur
found that with this mutter and nil
travelling bills unexplained he could
not get his estimate* voted and though
ho fought two night* and three days he
got no further ahead and finds himself
obliged to clear np the matter before he
gets hiB vote.
The immediate cause of the long sitting may be brelly explained. Mr. lirodeur's estimates had been partly voted
before going any further to produce certain information, which the bouse had
ordered und the minister agreed to
bring, before his estimates were again
taken up. He failed to have he papers
ready al the time promised, though he
claimed that this failure was through
no personal fault of hiB own, but was
due to the absence of his deputy. Under
these circumstances opposition members asked that the marine estimates
be postponed and those of some other
department ta'teu up. A.s all the luin-
Jsters have money to vote that course
Bight easily have been followed. Hut
Mr. Hrodeur insisted lhat his own yotes
should be paased. Conservative members stood by their declaration, to
which the minister had himself assented, that the Information should be given
lirst and the vole afterwards, and that
If through auy misfortune Mr. Brodeur
had failed to get his papers ready
some other minister who had not railed
should take up his estimates. Mr. Hrodeur refused to allow oilier work to be
done. He was thus himself the obstructor, and Is responsible for tlie loss
of time.
It was found that not only was the
money of the itni����rted bookkeepers for
board and expenses paid without vouchers, but thut no officer certified to the
coiToctnosa of most of the 1(0,000 paid
for Ihe accounting. A large part was
paid on the mere certificate of the men
to whom the money vent. It would
have i uited the minister to have his
money voted before these and other
facts were known, as It suits other ministers to shut out enquiry into all doubtful matters of public expenditure. Hut
there must be a limit lo these suppressions.
Gt.'national Declaration of Former Chief
engineer���All   Benefit Will
go  to   Europe.
New Haven, Conn., March 9.���John F.
Stevens, president of the New York, N.
II. and H. railway, and former chler engineer ol the Panama canal, has Issued
a statement regarding the waterway ln
which he prophesies its failure.
Mr. Stevens says the canal will not
help the United States in its trade with
South America, as practically all ot the
inhabitants oi the southern continent
are east of the Andes. He also says
that in the commercial relations of the
United States with the Islands of the
Pacini- and tbe tar east the canal will
bo of little value. The coal and wheat
centres of tlie United States are inland,
ihcir products have to be started on
their way by rail; when once loaded on
ears It would be no cheaper to ship to
the Atlantic and then ship it to the east
by wuy of the canal, than It would be
to ship It directly to the countries in
the east by rail and ship.
Furthermore, Mr. Stevens believes
lhat the coal supply of the United States
Is fast diminishing and thai China will
be the coal country or the future. Siberia, he says, will be the wheat country of the future with Indiu second. The
Panama canal cannot hope to feecoma
anything other tliuu an expense, according to Mr. Stevens. It will not meet
expenses. And It will cost more than is
expected. It will be an advantage ix>
UJuropans countries not lo the United
States. '
Thu date of tho finishing or ihe canal
he fixes as January 1915. The idea ot
the canal being of great value to the
United States In lime of warfare, since
the American naval forces dan be qulck-
ly sent from one coast to the other, he
suys, is utterly absurd. It would take
days for the ships to get round nnd
duting that time hostile Bhella would
have done their work. Mr. Stevens believes that It would be a far wiser plan
of delenso to put the money that the
canal will cost Into a greater navy.

Nothing To Be Said About
Miser's Letter
Correspondence Between Emperor of
Germany and First Lord of Admiralty Not Official.
London, March 9.���The hope that the
letter sent last month by Emperor William of Germany to Lord Tweedmouth,
first lord of the admiralty, ln which it
has been charged His Majesty attempted to Influence Great Britain's naval
legislation, and the British minister's reply thereto, would be made public for
the edification of the people, was quickly dispelled by Herbert H. Asqulth,
chancellor or the exchequer, In the
house of commons this afternoon.
In a couple of cut sentences, Mr. As-
quilh. who was acting premier, told A.
J. Halfour and his other questioners-
that he had nothing to add to his statement of Friday and that so far as he
knew Lord Tweedmouth had nothing
lo add to his declaration beyond the
tact lhal Immediately on the receipt of
Emperor's William's letter, the flrst
lord of the admiralty showed it to Sir
Edward Grey, the foreign secretary,
who agreed with the recipient that the
letter had no official character and
should be treated as a private communication.
"It is clearly out of the question,"
continued Mr. Asquith, "to lay private
and personal correspondence on the|
A question from Amelius R. Lock-
wood, a Conservative member of the
house, as to whether it was possible for
a communication on such an important
question to lie regardea in any way ar
private, drew a still curter "Yes" rroni
Mr. Asqulth. and wben he was asked to
give the house of commons an opportunity to discuss Ixird Tweedmouth's
action, the acting head of the government maintained a chill silence.

has managed during that time to get
Into trouble on several occasions. He
has served two months ln the provincial
gaol, nnd has been a source of continual
annoyance to the gtiardluns of tho
Saturday's  Chambers.

Triala    of    British    Liberate���Woman's
Franchise and  Licenaing BUI
Causing Trouble.
London, March 9.���The English atmosphere has been quite murky with
strong language for the past few days,
and not all of it comes from masculine
lips. There is the Licensing Bill, which
threatens the workingman and his beer.
Then there is the Woman Suffrage Bill,
which was burled under the cynical aspect of victory. All ln all, the country
has been set by tbe ears, and there Is
sad need of a good satirist who might
restore the national temper by mixing
these  children   up.     ���
Neither of these dreadful measures
Is ln any Immediate danger of becoming the law of the land, although the
introduction of one caused a shrinkage
in value of $160,000,000 in brewery
shares on the stock exchange, and the
veto on the other caused the militant
Suffragettes to declare a bitterer war
than ever on the Liberal party and all
its works.
The brewing Industry pays the government about $190,000,000 annually in
taxes, which represents two and one-
half times lu own profits. There are
something less than one hundred thousand liquor saloons ln Great Britain, and
the government proposes to close 32,000
of them within fourteen years. Now
it happens that a liquor license has become a sort of vested interest in the
premises that own it ln this country,
and English ethics regard the cancelation of a license without compensation
as frightful injustice. So the government proposes to pay the thirty-two
thousand license-holders who are to be
deprived of their livelihood, at the expense of tbe others who retain licenses.
This project Is denounced by the liquor trade and by such Unionists as
Balfour, as confiscatory, and it is met
by violent threats to put up the price
of beer. The British workman would
resent this more strenuously than the
Unionist proposal to raise the Jrice of
bread by putting a tariff j,n flour.
Hence this storm of vituperation that
rages about the heads of the unfortunate statesmen who comprise the British
Then, too, the West End has its grievances in the feature of the bill which
permits policemen to invade the sacred
precincts of the Carlton or Atheneum
Club, to see If any drunken members
be on the premises. Of course, the
bill has no chance of passing the Lords
ln its present shape, and It will be considerably modified before It can get
there or the commons. The measure
Is. in fact, only another attempt of
the government to make some show of
redeeming another of its embarrassing
pre-election  promises.
The Woman Suffrage Bill is in another category. The government distinctly disallows it, and refuses" to
make it parL of its programme. It Is
a private measure, and, being highly
contentious, stands no chance of enactment at the present session.
Although a large majority of members of the commons are Individually
pledged to support It, Its fate is sealed
by Its reference to the committee of the
whole house, instead of to a standing
committee. The Suffragettes know thlB.
Hence their rage over empty victory.
It is ndt the first time the house of
commons has voted in favor of woman
suffrage, and the division brings votes
for women no nearer. The satirical tone
of most of the speeches ln debate hardly testifies to the wisdom of the militant agitation of the past few months.
The strongest serious point urged
against the bill was the lack of proof
that, the ifranchlse is really desired
by the women of England. There wa^
only one bit of direct evidence hearing
on this feature. An enterprising newspaper recently took a poll of Sheffield
on this subject, with the result that a
large  majority voted adversely.

Insists  on  visit  to   Barcelona   in  Spite
of Warnings���Anarchists  Have
Decreed Hia Death.
Barcelona; March 9.���General Linares,
the cuptuln general of Barcelona, is con-
udenl that the visit of King Alfonso to
Barcelona will pass off satisfactorily.
His Majesty is expected tomorrow morning. General Linares declares that the
population of this city Is anxious to
shjws its loyalty to the king, whose courage iu coming in spite oi the repeated
bomb outrages is generally admired.
Nevertheless, the captain general is
sparing no precautions to safeguard His
.Majesty. Tbe official programme of the
visit has not been allowed to be printed,
and the houses along the streets through
which the king is to pass have all been
thoroughly searched, but in view of the
lact that for twenty years Barcelona has
been a stronghold of Republicanism,
and the centre of violent Carlist agitation, brought about by the withdrawal
of the ancient privileges of Catalonia
at the time the government was centralized, alter the French model, an enthusiastic reception is not expected. Tbe
peril of the king comes chiefly from the
anarchist wing of the Carlists which is
conducting a campaign of bomb operations as reprisals for the alleged ill
treatment of the comrades who are confined in the Mont Junich prison.
���Madrid, March 9.���It developed here
today that a section of the Spanish ministry is bitterly opposed to King Alfonso's going to Barcelona, which is described as a "wasp's nest," but the king,
with a display of old Bourbon courage,
has refused to bOdlssuaded. He con
siders It his duty to go and is confident
that his visit-to Barcelana will appeal
to the chivalrous spirit of the Spanish
people and have a good effect.

Accorded to Municipal
Ex-Mayor Gillett's Account of Annual
Meeting���Acts as Second Parliament.
Ex-Mayor Gillett returned to the city
Saturday night after an extended visit
to the coast cities of British Columbia
and Washington. Everywhere he was
told of marked improvement in conditions and prospects. The expected extensive developments on the northern
coast and on Vancouver Island have
stimulated activity in all the cities and
a boom year is confidently predicted.
While at the coast Mr. Gillett heard
nothing but praise, from members of
both political parties, of the settlement
ot the dispute between the provincial
government and the Grand Trunk Pacific company.
Mr. Gillett was a member ot the executive committee, elected last year, ot
the Union of British Columbia Municipalities. He attended the convention,
held this year in Nanalmo. He explained that, though a member of the executive, as he was not now a member ot
the city council, he was not eligible aa
a delegate. ,
The constitution was then amended
by unanimous vote making members ot
the executive ex-offlclo delegates during
their terms of office, thus giving Mr.
Gillett a voice and vote. V
Among the most important matters
dealt with was a recommendation to
the provincial government that land be -
set aside and $30,000 be appropriated,
for an Old Man's Home, and a farm to
be cultivated by the inmates, municipalities to pay the government in proportion to the number of inmates each
should send, but the management to be
under government authority. Another
resolution asked for a change ln the
Municipal Clauses Act giving to municipalities the right to supply hydro-electric or water power within or without
the municipal limits irrespective of corporation competition. A change in the
School Act was asked to permit a levy
of ten mills Instead ot 5 for school purposes, as every city in the province has
to appropriate at least the amount that
would be represented by such a levy.
There were 47 delegates tn attendance, and a deputation of 14 went down
to Victoria to wait on the cabinet, a full

promised to all the requests ot the

expressed approval of the proposal of
the Old Men's Home on such terms as
would allow the Inmates to feel that

Many other matters were Introduced,
a large number of which were left ln
the hands of the executive.
Mr. Gillett said: "I consider the Union
of Municipalities a second provincial
parliament, und it is recognized as such
at least by the present provincial government. The principle Is practically
established that no changes will be
made in the Municipal Clauses Act
without reference to the Union."
Mr. Gillett could easily have secured
next year's convention for Nelson, but
he had no authority from the city council, and In Nelson's default, the Invitation of Vernon was accepted.

The syBtern of party government Is
recognized as full of imperfections, hut
it Is the best working basis democracy
haB yet discovered. The two parties
which alternately govern the state form
something like an analogy with the two
Kings nf Sparta. A strong government
unchecked by opposition would almost
certainly become corrupt and Indifferent to the rights of the general public.
Ou the other hand too Blroug an opposition may hamper and cripple a government in lis honest efforts to do perfectly legitimate work. But it Is not
eusy to Und the huppy medium. Certainly It has not been round yet.
In the legislative bodies whose proceedings are ot most direct Interest to
British Columbia we have at present,
or had until Saturday, two widely divergent examples.
Tho opposiUon at Victoria can hardly be called an opposition. Its chief
funcUon, performed by Mr. Oliver, Ib
an honestly meant. If somewhat crudely executed, attempt to provide amuse
ment for tlie legislature during the Intervals of serious and Important business conducted by the government. At
the session which cloBcd Saturday this
performance did not Involve any serious
waste of time, and on tho whole little
iiiirin was done.
The opiiosiilon at Ottawa Is of a decidedly different character. It has been
so vigorous, determined and persistent
that mauy Liberals protest that It baa
exceeded the bounds of necessary, and
even of legitimate, criticism. Tbe sit
uatlon Is exceptional and worthy of
careful and  though:fill analysis.
The Liberal party bas been In power
tor nearly twelve years. The three last
general election* have resulted In large
niaJorlllcH, relative to the total membership of the house of commons. Dur
ing all that time the Liberal leaders
have treated the opposition contemptuously, and the rank and Hie have acted on the assumption that their victories entitled them to an absolutely
rree hand, and that the opposition hud
little riulu in the house and none at
all to Interrupt The evil example was
set by .Mr. Fielding at the very first
session.   Mr.   Foster   asked   a   question
ln the not uncommon form: "I hope	
 ," and received the very polite reply from Mr. Fielding: "The honorable
gentleman's hopes are very Interesting."
With that example of courtesy set by
the second member of the cabinet it Is
not to be wondered at that the private
Liberal members formed an exaggerated
view of their rights as compared with
those of their colleagues across (he
The same attitude has been maintained during the whole twelve years, not
only as against ihe attacks of Mr. Foster, hut also against Mr. Borden whose
criticisms have been uniformly restrained and expressed in the most temperate
The natural consequence came a week
and a half ago. The Conservatives were
very patient but they were not Ignorant
of their strict constitutional rights. They
had given ample notice of their Intention to enquire Into the accounts of
Mr. Brodeur's department. Mr. Bfodeur
had actually promised to produce the
itiforiuuiion required. Nevertheless he
faced the public account* committee at
the appointed time with the airy explanation that his deputy was otherwise engaged, the information waa not
quite ready, he was sorry, etc. He sllll
disdained to ask a favor of tho opposition bul Insisted on Ihe passing of estimates   for his   department   In   spite  of
his tailors to produce   the   accounts
promised.   The opposition resented such

Meanwhile Liberal organs throughout
Meanwhile Liberal organs throughout
the country have set up a roar of scornful Indignation. The Toronto Globe
eloquently characterizes the opposition
contention as "pifBe" and its members
as "a lot of school boys." The reverend
editor is welcome to all the gratification afforded him by his highly original
and l'elicitous expressions, but they do
not touch the controversy.
Mr. Brodeur's discourtesy might be
overlooked. Courtesy trom ministers is
no longer expected at Ottawa, but the
revelations at Ottawa within the last
few years,���the Merwln contract, the
cruise of tbe Arctic and a few more Incidents���have shaken public confidence
in the marine and fisheries department,
and made Investigation a public duty;
all the more imperative since since the
extraordinary sum of $50,000 has been
spent for a special audit of its accounts.
It Is easy for Liberals to shriek
"Slander," and "Obstruction," and to
pertinently revive nccusations against
Conservative ministers of 20 years ago.
That does not affect tbe present situation a particle. Public accounts must
be submitted for the Inspection or the
public's representatives, and not only
Is the Conservative party within Its
tights in Insisting upon such submission,
it is merely performing Its constitutional duties as the opposition in parliament.

Amendments to the Constitution' of Parliament  Effected  During  the
Present Seasion.
Tho Laurler government has since
this Beaslon opened laid down a series
of propositions, the full significance of
which must not be overlooked. It has
(1) No public document shall be
brought down to parliament If tbe ministers are Interested ln the suppression
of It.
(2) No member of parliament shall
ln future exercise the right of inspecting (be public documents in the departments.
(3) No Inquiry shall be made Into
dishonest   departmental   transactions.
(41 No full and free Investigation
shall be made by tbe public accounts
committee, as ln the past, into the public expenditures.
(5) No appeal shall be taken to parliament against a ruling of the public
accounts committee obstructing the enquiry  into graft.
(6) N"o documents ordered by the
public accounts committee shall be examined by the members, as in former
years, at the only time when they can
be inspected, namely, when the committee is  not sitting.
(7) No information shall be given to
the house in committee of supply with
respect to the votes that are sought if
the minister thinks it desirable to keep
back the facts.
(8) No sitting of parliament shall be
adjourned If tbe representatives of the
people refuse to vote supplies because
of the withholding of information with
respect to the expenditure of the money
of the people.
These are the principles of the new
despotism. They have been publicly announced and publicly acted upon by the
ministers. They are the products of
tyrants who are forced into their attitude of hostility to parliamentary rule
by the dishonesty in the administration
of our affairs which they wish to conceal.
If there were no stealing at Ottawa,
if there were no graft, would there be
any necessity for all these artificial
Bchemes to dodge enquiry and publicity? Would Frank Oliver refuse to
bring down the documents if there were

ed? Would he object to inquiry in the
department of the interior and into the
methods by which the public lands are
distributed ii* the business were honestly conducted? Would he try to restrict
tbe right of members of parliament to
investigate the accounts if he were not
afraid that new steals���steals larger
aud more to be condemned than those
already exhumed���will come to light?
Would the public accounts committee
be tied down by the blockers if there
were nothing to hide? Would the gov-
erument have fought for days and
nights to get the marine department
supplies through without information it
the information in Its possession did
nut contain new proofs of dishonesty?
The Ottawa despotism is a child of the
old system of graft. It has been forced
upon this so-called "Liberal" government as an expedient to cover up the
frauds which have contributed to the
trebling of the public expenditure during the past twelve years. Parliament
is compelled to submit to it just as parliaments of old were compelled to submit to monarchs who could coerce and
imprison the members. But there is an
appeal from the tyrants to the people.
And it cannot be doubted that in the
light against graft sustained by despotism the great mass of the electors
will espouse the cause of public rectitude and parliamentary liberty, and
give us cleanness and freedom once
again.���Mail and Empire.

An  Apology.
Willis and Coagrove, the "theatrical
promoters" of Calgary, have written to
the editor of tbe Moyle Leader apologizing for the appearance of the Robert
Ganthony company on this circuit. They
say that they had been Imposed upon
by clippings which Ganthony had from
old country papers. The trouble Is that
the apology came only after the people
biid been victimized out of their money
After all it Is doubtful If Willis and Cos-
grove are more to blame than the papers
which published exaggerated advance
notices of tho performances of ihe company.
