Borden and Foster Denounce Graft
and Extravagance���Laurier
Ignored Challenge,
Ottawa, Dec 13.���-The actual work or
tbe session began last week with the
debate on the address. Mr. Borden, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and Ur. Foster were the
eh|��f speakers on the first day. Mr.
Borden began by a relerence to the in-
dlgulty offered by the premk-r to his ISA
i-'.l-iwii-K in the house when he passed
them ull over to bring Mr. Pngslcy and
Mr. Graham into the cabinet from outside. The lessen in philosophy gave
Liberal members a sense of their own
uuworthiness, but they still retained the
privilege of voting for everything tho
government did whether they liked it
or not. In hii reply Sir Wilfrid said that
all his followers had such confidence in
him that they never questioned his
judgment under such circumstances.
Though this remark was applauded.
many members privately dissent from
their leaders judgment that they are
unfit to hold offlce. Two of these dissenters who aspired to cabinet positions
were uot present to applaud. They are
provided for in the senate.
The speech from the throne boasts
of the expansion of trade, but Mr.
Horden on Monday nnd .Mr. Cockshutt
in his able review of the financial and
comm-Tclal situation on Tuesday, pointed out that the increase had been mainly on imports, and that last year Canadians had bought from ahroad more
than they exported. In five years this
balance had been $187,000,000 and it i��
growing larger every year. As Mr.
Cockshutt pointed out, Canada is a rich
country with vast resources, vet last
year the country has Imported $20 per
head more gooda than the value of exports. The situation has caused great
anxiety In financing and banking cir
cles. The president of the Bank Of Montreal pointed out at the recent annual
meetings ihat this enormous obligation must be 11-initiated In some way.
Hut while the banks are becoming cautious ami business men are watching
their expenditure closely it is shown
that the government is recklessly In-
tn using the outlay in all directions.
Mr. Horden showed that the taxation
per bend in the last five years waa
double that of the last five under Conservative ruh'.
Last year Mr. Fielding took nut of
tho people $1,322,000 a wok which Is
ISOO.OOO more than waa collected eleven
yi ars ano.
Mr. Fielding boasts of his surplus.
Hut as editor of the Chronicle when
the late gnvernrtent declared a surplus
Mr   Fielding wrote;
'*A surplus of millions at the Capital
Is just so much nionev withdrawn rrom
the trade of (be country. Mow long
can the Dominion stand the drain?"
And again Mr Fielding wrote: -'lOvi-rv
dollar of the surplus Is taken out or thr
pooketi or the people witbo.it the shadow of an excuse."
Yet on Tuesday of this week Mr
Fielding boasted that no Conservative
uovernment ever had such surpluses as
As was expected Mr, Uorclen took
the first opportunity to tell Mr. Pugs
ley to bring forward his charges of
Conservative corruption in iim.*.. Mr
Pugsley haa be. n talking a good deal
outside of Parliament and Is now
broughl up tO the ringbolt. Mr. Horden
had not been many minutes on Ms fee-
before he took this mnt-nr Up nnd ma;h
this emphatic declaration:
"I want to tell thnt Hon. gentleman
and to tell the Prime Minister that If
���>nv  Investigation  Into campaign  funds
is desired ore are ready for it as snor-
as  thi'v  choose to Institute It."
This declaration was loudly applaud
ed by the Conservative side but Sir WH
ftid who spoke later, made no sign tha'
he desired an Investigation.
Sir Wilfrid thinks Mr. Borden's platform more Important than the govern
ment prournmnv- and devoted most of
his speooh to the plea that th-* Conservative policy was Indefinite. He wa*-*
careful tint to read the text hut contented hlmseir with this general criticism
Mr. Foster met by reading from th**
platform itsel Ho show that It was B
plain business-like statement. For ex
Ample thera wns nothing vncue about
the demand for the "nnnolntment of
puhMc officials u|>nn consideration of cn-
iiacltv and nersnnnl character nnd not
for party service nlone." Mr. Fnster
sald Ihe Premier understood this well,
nnd  added:
"He known thnt If ever the leader
of a minlstrv In this country has been
guilty of bedevilling the public service
It Ib the premier himself. This com
menced when he sold judgeships and gov.
ernorshlps to his friends Langeller al
most before his feet began to tread
the paths of office."
Nor could the premier fall to understand Hie demand tor punishment of bribery and fraud, the prevention of corruption, the prompt trial of election
cases.    Concerning this Mr. Foster said:
"The people of this country are sick
at heart. They are disgusted, and the
outcome and measure of that disgust
Is failing on these gentlemen in bye-
elections, wherever the people can
Speak their minds with reference to It."
Then looking straight at the premier
Mr. Foster demanded:
"What have you done since you catne
into oAoe to make it harder for the political thief to do his work and to make
it easier for the honest elector to deposit his ballot and have it counted?
Vou, sir, have stood up In this house
against an investigation of these crimes.
You. sir, in the theatre down yonder put
your hand upon the shoulder of George
W. Ross and appealed to the people of
Ontario for his re-election saying, "this
is my right hand. I want you to make
that right hand .strong." The right
hand shielded you. and shielded tho^e
who worked for you. who bought for
you. who sold for you, who conspired
for you and you to this day have entered Into the fruits or their labors.
Not until that right arm was shattered
were the processes of the law able to
cat eh   the   scoundrels."
In such language as this the meaning
of some parts of Mr. Borden's platform
wns impressed upon the premier. The
discussion con*Inned all the week, the
opposition forcing the fighting from the
st art. For the first time in several
yean an amendment was preposed to
the address In reply. This motion s**-t
Torth the lack of business prudence,
wasteful extrnvagance and heavy taxation of recent years, referred to the adverse balance of trade aud the increased
expenditure and closed by Informing
His Kxeelh-ncy "that the business of
the country had not heen carried on with
that usual foresight, care and prudence
which have characterized the management of successful husiness institutions."
This amendment, was forced to a vote
on Thursday, and was rejected by a
party majority of 39.

Whereas it has transpired In an investigation conducted under a royal commission appointed by the Dominion government that the said James Dunsmulr
Is and has been a contractor of Asiatic
labor, and Is and lias been directly and
personally Interested In the Importation
uf Asiatic laborers, and
Whereas the said governor's act of
withholding official assent of aforesaid
ls contrary to all constitutional practice
and precedent under the s\ stem of British parliamentary government; and
Whereas neither the course of the
premier, Hon. Richard McBride. ln accepting responsibility for the governor's
action, nor the resolution of the recent
provincial Conservative convention approving his said- course, is In accord
either with the wishes or the welfare
ar the people or British Columbia.
Be lt therefore resolved by the young
Liberals of the city of Vancouver, In
general meeting assembled, that In the
op'nion ol this meeting the governor-
general-ln-councll should ask for the
resignation or the Hon. Mr. Dunsmulr,
failing which, should effect his removal
from offlce; and that this meeting
Btrongly condemns the unparlamentary
attitude adopted by Hon. Richard McBride and his government In holding office ln the face of the unconstitutional
practice of Lieutenant-governor Dunsmulr, as heing a course of conduct subversive of and a menace to our syslem
of responsible government.

Bushels���Remarkable Record
Made by C. P. R.
Winnipeg. Dec. 13���With the closo cl
navigation on Tuesday came the an
nounoetnent that 20.oyss.3r.:! bushels of
wheat had been shipped by vessels from
the head ��r tho lakes during the season
which began officially on September 1st
but ns a mutter of fact not actually until September 21st.
The outward movoment was not all
tho crop of 1908 as considerable of tho
crop of 100C wns on hand when the new
season opened, and a portion at least,
must have been shipped out in the latter
part of September and the beginning of
October, but the bulk of the movement
was new crop. When the lateness of
the season Is considered, and the delay
occasioned by the money stringency allowed for, lt Is most, gratifying to find
ihat the shipments of wheat have come
within 5,000,000 bushels of those for the
corresponding period of last year when
the season opened promptly on September Sst, and there was a heavy rush or
wheat during the whole of that morth
as well as during October and November. This year the receipts of wheat
were not heavy until October 2-st.
There has been somo complaint of
car Bhortage from time to time, nevertheless thet Canadian Pacific Railway,
which carries more than two-thirds of
the total crop shipped, has pintle a moBt
remarkable record for rapid handling of
grain. During tho month of November
12.781', cars nassed Inspection at Winnipeg against 10.018 for November. 1906.
and of those 9,374 cars were hauled by
the Canadian Pacific.

Scientific    Operations    Only    Begun   in
Yukon and Cariboo���Plans for
Next Year.
Gold production in the far north i*s
not expected to exceed $3,000,000 in value thiB year, the lowest in ten years;
months past waa ushered in today with
and development of the past season. Individual effort has, of course, ceased
and most of the gold won thin year
was the result of dredging; but the
chief feature has heen the enormous
expenditure of capital in vmividing
OQUlp���lent for future hydraulic working,
by the completion of an elaborate system of limning and ditching covering
a distance of approximately sevent>
miles. It is stated that water will be
available for the commencement of extensive hydraullcking early next season bj this system, while some half
a dozen more dredges will he in operation. Hence, in 1908 will be inaugurated a new era for the Yukon, a beginning
of mining on a colossal scale, of concentrated effort and the application of
tbe most modern and scientific methods. Th*' most recent Intelligence
from the Yukon is that another large
area, including some three or four hundred claims on Dominion creek, has
been acquired by corporate interests,
and it is to he expected that ere Ion*?
all remaining productive areas in the
vicinity of Dawson will be thus absorbed   and   consolidated.
Conditions in the Cariboo district are
also satisfactory, d<spiie the fact that
operations were prematurely discontinued this season at the Bullion, the largest productive hydraulic mine in British Columbia. Good clean-ups have.
however, been made from claims on
Mosnuito Creek, from thn Forest Rose.
the Lowhee Hydraulic and Stout's
Gulch. At the latter some 300,000 cubic yards of gravel were piped off during the season. The Slough Creek Co.
engaged tn mining the deep ancient river channels at Blough Creek, ts now
proposing to abandon steam power for
pumping, and install electric pumps
with a capacity of 5.000 gallons per
minute. The richness of the deep channels has been fully demonstrated, but
heretofore the tremendous inflow of water has proved an insurmountable difficulty to profitable mining.���From Mines
