The city council broke all its own
records last night by sitting ihree
hours as council and half an hour longer
as board of health.
Seldom have so many matters of importance come up for disposal ai one
meeting of the council as were dealt
with last night.
The moat Important was of course tbe
new public school. Its necessity waa
admitted by all and the initial step of
asking for extended borrowing powers
was approved. Even Alderman Selous
expressed hlB approval of the building
of a school while reiterating his
charge that the province has dealt unfairly with the municipalities. Ab the
province la now a collection of municipalities no one suffers by the mere
change of method of taxation, and no
change back would benefi. NelBon, un-
less by Bpeclal aid not given to her slater  municipalities.
The temporary agreement with the
Ailis-Chalmers-Bullock company was rs-
ported and approved. An agreement between the city and the West Kootenay
Power and Light company tor joint use
of the sub-atation for one year was ap-
proved, and permission was glevn the
-company to use the city's lines* lo supply power to lhe Canada Zinc Company,
east of the city.
Other acta of the council were the appointment of a new foreman of the
tramway, ordering estimates of the cost
of certain tramway extensions, Joining
tbe Union of Canadian Municipalities,
and  the usual passing of accounts.
The board ot health sat to learn from
Dr. Arthur the method followed in cases
of Infectious diseases, especially as to
the city's financial obligations.. Dr.
Arthur has lollowed the custom of his
predecessors in office in assuming, tor
the city, the whole responsibility. He
was instructed for the future not to do
so unless ln cases where refusal might
cause delay and Involve danger to life.
The council came to order shortly after 8 o'clock, with Mayor Gillett iu the
chair, and Aldermeu Hume, Selous, Annable, Irving and McMorris present.
The mitiuies of the last tegular and
special meetings were read and
The finance committee reported,
recommending payment of accounts and
payrolls totalling $3466.50, acceptance
's.f the estimates of the school board
and the lire department, that notice be
published that all licenses in arrears by
March 5th be collected hy legal process,
that all waler consumers be* notified
that unless arrears are paid by March
31st their Bervice will he discontinued
The roport was adopted.
Alderman Selous, for the special com-
inltlce, reported frequent Conferences
with the Allis-Chalmers-llullock company's representatives, which had resulted in ail agreement embodied ln tho
following  resolution:
"That no payment be made to AIHb-
Chalmers-Bullock Company, Ltd., with
respect to contract, until a proper governor be supplied and operated in conjunction with the rest of the plant, to
the satisfaction of the city electrical
enelneer, for seven days, and that lu
the meantime the company continue in
clsarge or and operate the plant continuously, and be responsible In every
respect for any accident, loss or damage
ln connecttcn therewith, un'ess the company can show that it did not result
from, or ls in any way attributable to
the absence, non-working, deficiency or
insufficiency of governor In connection
with the power plant, and such responsibility la to remain until the plant Is
accepted and taken over by the city.
"Thai thc city, tn order to assist In
(he expense of such continuous operation of plant and Its utilisation of power, ln the meantime agrees to pay the
wng-s of four men covering two 12-hour
shifts al p-swer plant not exceeding a
cost of liOO p?r month: also cost of
oil, waste, packing, wood and such

"That ns lo the wheel and generator
supplied by the company, the citv electrical engineer may, If they have run
satisfactorily for 30 days, bo decide in
so far aa it is possible for him lo ascertain and decide without a proper governor being Installed and operated; but
neither auch decision nor this resolution are ln any way otherwise to prejudice or affect the rights and liabill
ties of the parties."
Tbe resolution was seconded by Alderman McMorris and carried unanimously.
The city engineer reported, recommending 4(hat an 18-inch wood slave
pipe be put in as an auxlllarry sewer
lo carry the Stanley street sewage out
to low water.
The Firemen's association, by letter,
renewed Its request for a grant to Its
fund.. The letter was referred to tha
fire, water and light committee.
The petition of the board of school
trustees for a by-law to authorise a
loan tb build a new school, obtaining
apeclal legislation for the purpose, was
then read. The clerk stated that
the city's aasessment is 12,400.000. its
borrowing limit 20 per cent or (480,000,
Its bended indebtedness 1456,000, the
balance only $24,000.
An informal discussion followed, no
one denying the necessity for the building. The possibility of increasing the
assessment bv extending the c'ty limits was canvassed hut thought Impracticable or at least unpromising.
The mayor asked Dr. Arthur who attended on behnlf of the board, if lt
wou'd be possible to build oily a part
cf the new building this year.
Dr. Arthur replied that such a course
would result In a patched and permanently- unsatisfactory building.
The mayor���When do you want to
begin building.
Di*. Arthnr���Tomorrow. We realize
that lt ls requires special borrowing
Dowers. 0ut the matter should be In
the hands of the contractor hy the be
glnnli.a of the summer vacation.
Alderman Seloua again entered a protest against what he considered unjust
taxation. He thought that the whole
burden of the cost of educalon should
be I orne by he provincial government,
which still collects all taxes except
those on real estate.
Alderman McMorris moved, seconded
by Alderman Irving. "That the matter
of securing legls'atlon to extend the
borrowing power* of the city be referred to the city solicitor to prepare a
bill for presentation to the leglsla
Alderman Irving took Issue with Alderman Selous, as did Alderman Annable, who remarked that the city had so
fw soent p'MKlcal'y nothing for school
. Alderman Selona���I do not wish to
go on record as opposed to the building of a new school, or to special legislation for the purpose. I protest against
being taxed twice for the same thing,

Alderman Selous then suggested that
the matter be left over until the session
of the executive of the Union of Mu-
nlclpalltlCT In Victoria on March 6th,
which Mayor Gillett will attend.
Alderman McMorris' re-potation was
then put snd carried without opposition.
Chief Jarvls reported, recommendlnc
a new floor ln the police station, which
was ordered to be comnlled with.
The city solicitor advised against the
navm-^nt of the coal dealers' claim In
connection with the weight acal��a. The
clerk was Instructed to notify the

The agreement was approved.
Application for the position of working foreman of the tramway system
were then read. F. A. Smith of Vancouver, with experience ln South Africa,
Newfoundland and Vancouver, was appointed.
Alderman McMorris then moved:
"That the city engineer and the electrical superintendent be Instructed to
prepare an estimate of the cost of extending the street railway system: (a)

More Revelations Ottawa
Land Deals
Desiring Purchasers Held Off Public
Land for Years ior Favorites' Profits.
Continued On Page 4.)
Ottawa, Feb. 26.���Practically a repe-
tlon of the Robins land deal was exploited in the house when John Herron
called attention to the action of tbe
government in granting certain closed
grazing leases in Alberta and Saskatchewan to favorites of the government.
These leases had an irrevocable clause
which gave the lessee full ownership
for a term of twenty-one years. The
leases also carried privileges which
gave the lessee power to purchase ten
per cent of his leasehold at tl per
acre, and it waa granted to gentlemen
who did not live in the country at the
time, who had no interest in the country, and who never owned any cattle
in tbe country, and who held these
leases for the purposes of speculation.
At the same time -cattle men who had
been engaged ln the cattle business for
a great number of years, and who had
been trying ln every* possible way to
obtain leases were refused lhat privilege.
By an order In council, passed on
March 23rd, 1903, and Dec. 24, 1903, lt
was determined t-at closed irrevocable grazing leases should lasue to H.
P. Brown among others. In accordance therewith a lease was drawn up
ln the department ln favor of Mr.
Brown and dispatched to his address
at Great Falls, Montana, on Jan. 14th,
1904. This communication was accompanied by a lease ln duplicate, which
he was asked to sign and return at once
together with six months rental, amount
ing to about (600 payable in advance.
Brown never acknowledged this letter,
never signed any lease and never paid a
cent of rent. The government held the
land for him. No other rancher could
lease it; no settler could come In. Notwithstanding repeated efforts extending
over a period of eighteen months the
department was unable to reach Brown.
As Brown signed no lease and paid no
rent under the terms of the lease, his
privilege waa forfeited and the minister
had full power to withdraw the offer of
Dec. 24, 1903.
When the new minister ot the interior took office Brown was still undiscovered, but when the concession was
apparently in jeopardy, A. J. Adamson.
M. P., came upon the scene and presented a transfer of Browu'a right to the
Galway Horse and Cattle company, although tbe transfer was dated Sept. 17,
1903, a date at which llrown had no
lease, and the Galway Horse and Cattle
company  had  no  corporate  existence.
The government, nevertheless, recognized the transfer and agreed to grunt to
the Galawy Horse & Cattle company a
new lease for 21  yeurs from  Auguat,
1905.    This new  lease when  grantetd
was revocable*, but under pressure the
minister subsequently made tt a closed,
Irrevocable lease.    The Galway  Horse
_ Cattle company was composed of a
Liberal  member of the house,  and  a
c.susin of the same person, wbo were
residing at least 500 miles from the land
In question, and who never had been ln
the    cattle    business.    This company
never owned a head of stock and never
had any Intention of engaging in ranching,   lt seems as though the company
hal  p-ocurel   the  lease  tor   the   sole
purp.:s    or trafficking in  It.    At any
rale that was ceitalnly what they did.
After the Hon. Clifford Sifton had resigned, the Hon. Mr. Oliver, as his successor, came to the conclusion thai  H.
P.  Brown  must  disclose himself,  pay
the rent of lose his concession.    Then
a strange thing happened.   On July 17,
1905, just at lhe close of the parliamentary session, A. J. Adamson, M. P. for
Humboldt, presented himself to thc department and produced nn assignment
from H. P. Brown to the Galway Horse
& Cattle company.     This   assignment
wns datPd Sept. 17, 1903, and had appar.
netly been carried In Adamson's pocket
for a year and len months, during which
time     the     department     had    vainly
searched Montana for Brown, and during which   time   (he  government had
kept   out   settlers and had prevented
bona fide ranchers from entering upon
this territory.   Adamson would not pay
the overdue rental of (2400 and aecure
an irrevocable lease, but took a revoca
ble lease, commencing August 1, 1905,
paying six months rental of (650. Adam-
son's brother-in-law, Turriff, M. P.,
knew th" difference In value between
a revocable and an irrevocable lease,
got after the minister for a change and
Oliver yielded to Tariff's demand and a
new lease was Issued to the Oalway
Horse ft Cattle company with the revocable clause struck out. Within a week
tbe company had disposed of the lease
to John Gowdry Macleod, for 122,500.
Ames proceeded to speak of the per-
sonell 'of the Galway company. It consisted of A. J, Adamson, M. P., J. M.
Adamson, sister of Mr. Turriff, M. P.,
and A. J. Bell, cousin of J. M. Adamson. The company was Incorporated
apparently for the sole purpose of trafficking in grating leases. It only existed from March 11, 1904, to April 2,
1906, when It was struck off the register of the N. W. T. Its one transaction
consisted of acquiring the H. P. Brown
lease and the disposal of It to John
Gowdry. For over a year the lease wu
peddled round Alberta at sums ranging from $30,000 down to $25,000. Only
when the revocable c'ause waa struck
out was a purchaser found. An examination of the application of Brown for
the lease revealed that the magic letters
"per J. D. M." appeared under Brown's
signature, evidencing the presence of J.
D. McGregor of the Grand Forks Cattle company fame.
AM facts showed that the government permitted an area T)f 106 square
miles to be blanketed by a hogns entry
for a period of four years, during which
thne ranchers and settlers were kept
out. This valuable concession wu
hawked about the country, and 122,500
came to a member of parliament ln Invest in Cobalts in -consequence ot the
protection of one minister and the weak
ness of his successor.

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Feb. 26.���For the lut
couple of days 40,000 volts of electrict

Prior to that time 20,000 volts wu the
limit of power that could be used. L. A.
Campbell, the general manager of the
West Kootenay Power ft Light company, came over to Grand Forks to personally superintend the turning on of
this big power, which Is now working
In a most highly satisfactory manner.
In speaking of the rumor that his -company had purchased the Cascade Water

there was no truth ln It. As a result ot
this additional power supplied, the
Granby company and Grand Forks citizens are -how enjoying good lights,
which under the 20,000 volt system,
were very dim.
J. D. Hornsburger, one of the present

With tlie approach or 8|iring the problem which ls of mosi Importance In
Hritish Columbin ls tho labor problem.
Other Issues may be dealt with more
Msurely but this one Is pressing. Sev-
erly aB the famine of laborers, mechanics ansl artisans was felt last summer
lhe Btraln will be muth more trying
neit Bummer unless rails f is speedily
obtained. Thai this ls genorualy recognizes! throughout the province is evident, but not all parts of iht; province
are taking such systematic steps (o
face and solve (he problem us Is being
done In Victoria. There the board of
trade has laken the matter up anil will
thoroughly investigate local conditions
and In conjunction wllh the (taJe and
labor council will prepare a reporl upon
the subject which will b ��� somewhat
similar to the report of a commission,
it is proposed io arrange fssr interviews
with the managers of large anil small
Industries, employersof labor In ginerul
and representative citizens, farmers' In-
s Itutos and like Institutions who aro
wil ing to go on record its lo the best
method to be adopted lo overcome the
labor famine.
As Ib now well known a petition Is
being circulated in the capital city ask.
Ing Uie Dominion government lo repeal
the Chinese head lax of JfiOO or at least
reduce it to the nominal figure al which
lt stood a couple of years ago. The
subject was under discussion ln the
board of trade at Victoria recently but
did not comeito a vote because so Important it was felt (ha( (he senliinent
of the whole country sliould be obtain
ed. Hence the formation of lhe committee.
Whatever differences of opinion may
exist between various sections of society on the question of reducing the
lis ad tax on Chinese the delay and
thorough investigsition before taking ac.
Hon is wise. It was by the mosl strenuous and persistent agitation that the
present lax was secured. It has been
in operation but a short time but It has
been effective ln checking the Invasion
of Mongolians. That conditions should
have so suddenly changed as to make
what was so urgently advocuted a
couple of yenrs ago undesirable uow Is
a matter which cannot be believed
without abundant proof. The voice of
the whole country has a right to be
heard. The question is one upon which
labor unions as well as employers have
a right lo be consulted. The Investigation by the committee, lf lt ls made sufficiently (borough, will reveal whether
or no( the fixing of the tax at $500 was
a poliUcal move or whether It was un
honest endeavor to conserve Ihe widely
varied interests of the country. ThiB
is perhaps the most Important discovery thut will be made and ll will be
awaited with interest.
In the meantime the provincial government Is earnestly facilitating the
carrying out of the agreement with the
Salvation Anny bellevelng that many
desirable Anglo-Saxon Immigrants will
be secured In this way. The first contingent Of these immigrants Is expected
to arrive early next month. These men
are certainly preferable to Chinese as
many will bring their families wiih
them and augment the supply of domestic servants, As is well known the
provincial government hus nothing to
do with controlling the importation of
Chinese but lis efforts to supply or at
least assist in supplying (he crying need
of the oountry will meet with general
approval. Thnt the demand of the
whole country will be amply supplied
from any quarter during thc present
summer Is Impossible but we submit It
ls far better to have picked Immigrants whose placcB are ready to be
filled, aB under the system approved by
the government, than to adopt any
method which will lead to haphazard
distribution of new comers frsim any
country. This experiences with the
Sikhs has been sufficiently serious to
convince us of this. Whither these men
have vanished wo are not aware.   They
have deserted our sttvets and the st'tt-
satlounl Items relating their experiences
sent in from various parts of the country ins longer appear upon our pages.
The thrilling tales of robbery, assault
and other things with which they were
charged In the coast cities no longed
slarll'e us with their flaring head lilies.
Our experience with tho/i was Bhort
but it wus long enopg ttieutch us a sal-
lent lesson on the clusmsf Immigrants
thnt will Le most uaefptp the country,
lt will at once appear t|*ial It Is better
to go slowly and sSuyjjIn (material for
citizenship fiom the iigiit Quarter rather
than to rush Into the Importation of
undesirables for the sake of temporary
advantage. No man Is ioj good foi
British Columbia, either us a workman,
mi employer or an investor. We covei
(he bes( and by the adoption of proper
methods we may obtain them. Hut ln
this as In many other matters 1( Is well
to make haste slowly.
Sludents of events cannot fall lo be
Impressed wllh (he apparent desire on
the part ol" the leudlug nations of the
world lo approach (he problem of a
world peace at (he nexl Hague conference wllh (he ull seriousness. So far
as the Occident is concerned scarcely
a nation bus allowed itself to be omitted from the categorc of those which
have expressed the hope lhat the conference will result in some substantial
agreement among nations for disarmament or at least the reduction of the
munitions of war. This disposition is
in commendable contrast with the spirit
of the same nations less than a decade
ago. The defiant If not belligerent attitude of most of the European power8
kept the world ln constant dread that
war might develop ut any moment und
Internationa) relations were kept strained, first ut one point then at another
till rumors of war were the sensations
of the hour.
All this seems to be happily passing
away. It Is tme thn( Britain. Germany
and the United Stntes are still adding
(o their navies but this Is Imperative
or at least intelligible until such time
as a genera! agreement to disarm is
reached, While we agree with King
Haakon that it Is too much to expect
(he next Hague conference to finally
nettle the question there would seem to
be no doubt, If the spirK manifesled
can be laken seriously, thai a modus
Vivendi will be arranged which will
hasten the day predicted by prophets
and patriarchs of old.
These things have, of course, not
come about of themselves. There must
be a guiding spirit somewhere and thc
purpose is evidently being pursued with
a resistless energy, u worshipful tact
and a sublime patience and persuasive
power. It will be recalled thut a few
months ago the Associated Press announced that as a result of the good of-
fices of King Edward a new dreibund
hud been formed on the European continent. Although the report was officially denied lt will not down and has
been reaffirmed repeatesliy. We know
of no monarch more likely to be the
guiding spirit of such u pucflc purpose.
We know of none more qualified to execute it nor can we at (his moment sug-
ges( anyone In a more fnvoruble position for the carrying out of such a
lofty resolution. Without assuming the
truth of the suggestion it would bo
pleasing to reflect that the King of England, a nallon which has for centuries
been first in war und whose flug has
been trailed In Beas of blood, could be
tho medium through which the horrors
of war may be abolished. And we may
add thnt lt ls not a( all unlikely that
this will prove (he case.
The commercial (reatles which are being extended between the nations is a
healthy sign (ha( (he ravages of commercial warfare can also be obviated and
altogether (he outlook for a more general recognition of (he universal broth*
erhood of niun Ib encouraging. It is not
necessary to rhapsodize upon the prospect. It la yet too far away to do those
now in middle life much good but it is
some satisfaction to think thai (he rising generalion may live long enough to
read with the same starled wondnr Ihe
B(ory of wars of our age aB did little
Peterkln listen to the tales of his grandfather und wonder what the}' killed
each other for. Thc lesson sliould bo
an Imprtsslon ln the lesser walks of
life. While nations are drawing closer
together and entering Into bonds of
peace liiillvlduuls should not overlook
the opportunities to do the sums; thing
among themselves and the world come
in have un object lesson in how ideas,
am a thing It ls to see people dwelling
together In unity.
Speaking of the approaching colonial
conference and of Canada's attitude towards any readjustment of larlffB within the empire ehe Toronto Ologe suys:
"Canada's position will be stated with
frankness. Owing to a combination of
clrcumstunces protection Is a political
necessity |n tho Domoinlon, nnd the pro.
tected Interests are no more willing to
ucc *isi competition from within Ihan
Irom wlilissut tin' empire." Ys-t the
Libs ral party Went Into power on the
effect of the slugun "We must have free
trails' as they have it in Kngland." The
Glob,' was one of the mlgbtest to contend for this particular at lhat time.
Wus thi' Globe mistaken then ur is if
mistaken now? If In the flrsl Instance
as Is apparent there is no reason lo
nttuch any more Importance to Ihe
weighl of its argument Now :, Is a
busy lime with Grit politicians and
press squaring themselves with llie
trend of events.
Ths- Dully News of Saturday publishes under the heading "In McBrlde's
stronghold" the following special from
Vietssria: "A petition is being slgiis'd
by tlle women of Victoria usking Unit
the Dominion government be requested,
to remove the head tux of $500 on
Chinese, as domestic servants are
scurce in British Columbia since (he
Chinese have been kept uut by lbe imposition ol the head (ax." It Bceins to
us that it would have been more candid
and honest for the News to have headed
the item "In Templeniun's stronghold."
The record of the McBiide government
on the Chinese question when compared
with Hint of the Lib.-ral government,
has been too straight forward to allow
such a conteniptable slur to pass un-**
The Grand Forks Gazette opportunely points out that while the opposition
press wus loud In its denunciation of
Premier McBride because he did not
(ake J. A. Macdonald with hinie to Ottawa Sir Wilfrid Laurler has no Intention of taking Opposition Leader Borden with hinie to (he conference of colonial premiers, although lbe issu. s in
lho lalter case are less political than
ln the former. Ottawa is a good put-
torn for Liberals in some things, why
not in others?
Tho council of the town of Armstrong
is considering the question of imposing
a license on firms doing business within
the municipality for the purpose of assisting the revenue Tor civic improvements. The advertiser thinks no business man would object lo such a tax in
view of the Improvements it would assure. Nelson lias long had a llcs-nse
revenue ansl we hear of no hardships
being worked.

Government of Canada Only Lukewarm
on Proapect.
Ottawa, Feb. 26.���Official correspondence lead;ni_ up and re'ating to Ihe
fourth colonial conference, which Ib to
be held in London on April 15th next,
wa. tabled in the house of c minions
last week by Sir Wilfrid Laurler. It
opens with the circular Issued lo the
governors of Ihe self-governing colonies,
sent out by Mr. Lyttlcton in the spilng
oi 1905, suggesting the title "colonial
conferences" be discarded In favor of
the term "imperial council." to be applied to councils of the empire to be
held at regular intervals, with a permanent representative commission to
draft resolu.ions aB su.ge.-tid by the
governments interested. The proposal
wus accupsed by Cape Colony, Natal
and Australia, while Canada and New-
loundland dissented from it. The Canadian government took the ground that
any change in title should be left to
the conference Itself, while the suggested permanent commission was regarded
by Canada aB likely to "Interfere with
tbo working of responsible government." The conference, which was to
be held in 1906, was, however, postponed until 1907.
The Canadian government endeav.
ored to have the conference of 1907
postponed until May, but the colonial
secretary pointed out that this would
be inconvenient; that the conference
should meet on April 15th and not last
more than four weeks, as the premier
of South Africa and other delegates
would have to leave for home about the
middle of May.
Australia. New Zealand and Cape
Colony, replying to a request of the
colonial secretary, submitted a list of
the Bubjects which they considered
should be discussed at the conference.
Hut the government of Canada replied
that it had no suggestions to make.

The Doctrine of  Liaeaez-Faire  in   Mod*
ern   Time*.
The theory of lassiez-falre In economics la that the public autnorty should
interefere as little aa possible In the
business concerns of the community.
Ii is based on the unquestioned fact
that wealth is produced most economically and amply when Individuals are
free to produce nnd transfer on mutually arranged terms. Many men interested ln the scientific study of business
conditions regard the growing tendency
of the state to conrtol public companies
as a lamentable thing, a departure
from the proved advantages to a commonwealth secured by observances of
the laissez-faire docrtlne. Every advance of the government to the protection of the public against tooagressive
companies is regarded as a Btep toward
the baseless theories of Socialism, or
even toward anarchy. Jt was the refusal of the French government to allow private individuals full freedom in
trade that helped to bring about the anarchy of lhe French Revolution.
But the conditions under wwhich the
doctrine of laissez-faire was enunciated
have changed very greatly. The corpor.
ati; company, with special privileges
and usually with great wealth, has
Telegraph, telephone, express, street
railwway and public companies, like the
railways, are "public utilities." Their
duty does not end when their shareholders have been looked after. They have
a definite duty to provide the public
with the best possible service at reasonable rates. In most caseB this is the
return they are erpected to give for the
monoply they enjoy. If they fulfilled
their duties, and carried out iheir agreements in a (straightforward manner,
no public authority would interfere
with them. They would be "let alone
to produce and distribute wealth." It
is quite useless to say because in such
cases as we have mentioned there has
been government iterference that the
doctrine of laissez-faire has been abandoned. The tendency on this continent
Is to give full freedom to the idividual
until he uses his freedom to mork in-
iury to others. Then the law Bteps In.
When public utility corporations use
their powpr in an arbitrary and unfair
manner, government regulation is the
only salvation for the protection of the
public���and the doctrine of laissez-faire
