to obtained, of incorporating railways by private bllli md to introduce
a nsw order by which iuch charters
will be issuinl by the .siaiu liepuit.-

of a speech in lavor ol hli ttill, Bun-
nltir lluvis marshalled soma tilling

gua.  ■
Ile ilinliiiml that during the laat
twenty yeara the Canadian parliament
had issued no leaa than *13 chariots,
wholly apart Irom the billi for our
lour great muds, and only 33 ol Intsu
chartered eorporatlone bid done any
building, aiul most ol these bud done
very little, some ai little aa lour miles
ol roud. Une hundred and louritou
charters had lapsed and 931 extensions
ol time had been grented. The 111
rosds referred to had been uuth.ttved
to build 78,138 milei ol railway, und
only 1,340 miles of thii had mm actually constructed, most ul this being
by one or two compsnies. It all
pointed out thst the existence il these
charters often tunded to prevent tbu
building of a railroud, ue the old
charter had to be reckoned with in tbe
event ul a new roud being built.
Commenting uu the new bill u contemporary remarks:
"The bill is not intended to pre-
"vent the-huilding ol new roads, bul
"simply the granting ol charter! to

"not, il will perhaps at least pave the

A striking cuinciduncu, showing that
the extent lo which the grunling of railway charlen bos lieen misused, bus
.ittiii.'i.al widu ulleiition in legislative
circles, is found in the feot that At-
im ne) ilin.-itd Dowser iiiti.nlii.e.l e

providing lor lhe iucorporution ol
railway dimpauiss by moans ol a certificate Irom the registrar ol Joint

udding severnl clauses designed to
safeguurd Ihe publii- interests in

A:.iiLi-l!■ were substituted lor tho pure
and elevating theism of thc Old Covenant. On the Very spot where Abraham had worshipped tho invisible and
Holy Ono, wero now altars lor humun
