Many of the large crowd that had
gathered in the galleries in the expectation that the policy would be
announced earlier in the afternoon
had drifted a Way before the bil*3
caime In. and there were few of the
general public to hear the Premier's
announcements, calling for a total expenditure on the part of the province
of $1,850,000 and guaranteeing bonds
for railway construction to the r-x-
t��nt   of   *25.O0n.nnf).
The largest part of this expenditure
is incurred in a bill to repurchase 2.-
500,000 aces of the Columbia and
Western Land subsidy at 40 cents an
acre, a total cost of $1,000,000, but as
a s.-t-off the C.P.R. agrees to
return to the province the $387,000 it
has paid out in guaranteeing the
bunds on^the Shus-wap & Okanagan
Railway. The Pre-mier made: a brief
prefatory explanation  on  each  bill.
The first bill introduced was an act
to ratify an agreement between the
government and Messrs. Foley. Welch
& Stewart and between that firm and
the Grand Trim Pacific Railway Company for the construction of a railway
