Sifton was interested dn  this com-j     M.netes   cf   previous
pany, although they all lacked   the J were adapted hs read,
courage lo Sav so  in te_rms.    Fin
ally tbe rumor  reached  the  press
and then Mr. Sifton felt  bound   to:
pay   attention   to   it.    Opposition
tumors he treated  with contempt.
Mr. Sifton's denial was in  the following terms:
"I desire to say, Mt. Speaker,
that I am not the managing director or an d&ctr-ot tbe Imperial Pulp
���Company and I have never been.
I am not a shareholder or a Stockholder in the Imperial Pulp Company and I never have been. I have
noiu'erest directly or indirectly, bv
tnyselt or bj, or through anybody
���else, in any shape, form or manner
in the Imperial Pulp Company."
When Mr. 8itten fteh constain-
��d to make a denial he does it in
such a fotm that every loop hole
iis covered. This cannot be said of
Foster and his partners, whose long-
winded explanation of their doings
only made the matter appear in a
worse light.

This is the way the matter stands,
Mr. Foster, taking advantage ol
the absence *of his leader, Mr.
Borden, organized a deliberate system of obstruction to tbe business
ofthe House. At 1 lie moment the

Iu the same channel as. a bit ol
radical legislation, is the liquor bill
which was sprung by the government the latter part of the session.
The writer has talked with a number of hotel men in Winnipeg since
the bill wos published, and their
judgment ��s that prohibition is
practically assured all over Manitoba within a year or two at most,
and in Winnipeg within five years
The radical feature of the measure
{'is that a majority, instead of a
three-fifths vote as before, shall determine the sale ol intoxicating
liquors, and what is even more in
favor ot local option, that woh_.ii
��� who have child-ten in school, 01
who pay taxes, may vote, The
church element is jubilant, and the
hotel men are correspondingly cast
The hotel pRoprietors regard
with special]] alarm the provision
that the local option clause must be
submitted once a year to the voters,
provided a petition of ten pei cent,
ofthe authorized voters is. Received.
They say this spells ruin, because
it prevents \hotel man making improvements for tear of being put
out of business within a year His
hotel cannot be regarded as an
asset, as tl)e entire proposition u'ny
be extinguished within oije year.
Government in Earnest.
That the government is ill earnest in this liquor traflje retorm is
evidenced by tbe refusal ot all
charters foi plub bars at the past
session. Dozens of such requests
were belore the session, and in
every case.they wer.e refused. Even
ithe Amer.iq^-i-Canadian Club, one
of the most substantial, organizations in Winnipeg, ip haying trouble trying to secure a. permit to
supply its members \jtith liquid refreshments, premier Robliu very
laconically said in explanation of
his actions: ''Let the pjjajprilv rule.
That's the law of the 1 .nd, and the
tradition of the Empire., If the
people want this local option measure, we; wil? ?'re ifc *<>. tbem
That's. aU thereii.s.to.it."*
The outsageon.^ conduct of some
few hotel men of the qi.ty is declared to be in rjp small, measure responsible for. thi? revolution against
'tho saloon. Th�� charge that
"knock oat drops" were being
freely used in some saloons, and
other charges of sinister administration,, has resulted in strong ie-.
sentment agq.i,ufil_ the traffic in gen-,
eral, though the tiquot regulation
in Winnipeg as a whole bas been
for years very fair.^-cE X.

fsank apology ior. having done sq,
.and withdrew the words.,
I 1 _.ir,.Jy���He was shown to have
��� bien RUilty whcn> in oflice of the
very same offence which lie characterized as stealing..
The majn object ot the Qpposi
Hon was obstiucti^n.. Tbi.-ol.stnu-
tioiuhad tob-bused upon something,
this is how it was.done;. Mp.. Foster charged tbf; minister wilh taking mopey ��pom * certain vote and;
using it for another purpose. He
used these words.:
Foster's Charge ol Thet*,.
ll ask any raiaiste. oi the
Crown whether, hp recommeads that
as a policy to be pursued. Such a
;policy strike* at ths very, r;oot o��
p-irliamentary appropriation... Tht
Minister had no. right- to staul; from
another vote.
Then agaia Ms. Foster enlarged
upon this and sjiid::
"I took ihe ground that the language of a. vote indicated to what
purpose.the moling- was to-be put,
���and said that it was not proper to
take $4,000 or $5,000 voted bv
���parliament for ice-breaking steamers and use it to pay the  travellii g
expenses ot the minister and his
private secretary. I said, in effect,
that that was filching from one-
yote to meet Ijhe expenses of ft
different service. It was stealing
from oit4 vote and using the
money for a purpose sot designed
by parliament.
Foster's   Apology.
Having based obstruction upou,
the ground that the minister had
stolen mousy trom * vote, Mr.,
Foster was confronted with a case
in which he had done the very
thing charged. Mr. Foster wss
thereupon compelled to withdraw
the offensive wo$ds and apologise
to the minister which he did:
"BttJ I am frank to sav that t
might have used a word which
would be less offensive than the
word 'steal.* I might have used
the word Hransftrred.'' But the
meaning I had was exactly the
same meaning as if \ had used tbe
word 'transferredk' from one vote
^nd used the money f,o_ a purpose
distinctly not provided. If the
minister objects to it,, I will, take it
back frankly and fully. Looking
at it, now that it is fcn print, it does
appear to be a little too strong. If
I were to ro over it aggj,u alter cool
moments I, would say 'transferred'
instead of 'sienl.' "
