McLesin vs. the city re by-law 23 the
city solicitor stated that in his opinion
that there was no agreement existing
inasmuch as the purported agreement
bad been signed before by-law 23 had
been registered. Alderman Tuttli* objected lo having E, V. Bodwi-ll consulted on tliis matter upon iho. ground that
that gentleman was a solicitor for tlie
Crow's Nest Pass Electric Light and
Power Co. Mr. Mclntyre thought a
postponement for thirty days should be
asked for to enable the council to obtain opinion from counsel its to.the position of thc city in regard to these con-
tracts. Mr. Trites said the point to be
decided was the legality of tho by-law
and did not bear directly upon thc legality of the contract. He thought
that the longer the matter was delayed
the more costs would have, lo be paid
and the case should be heard ut once,
Alderman Tuttle then moved seconded
by Mclntyre lhat the city solicitor lie
inslructcJ to tube bucIi steps ns lie
deemed necessary 10 have the ca.se on
by-law 23 postponed twenty diiys, carried, Trites opposing. Aid. Mclntyre
then moved seconded by Quail Unit tlie
solicitor be instructed to obtain legal
advice as the city's position in the case

anl the (inly possible advantage would

To deal now'with thoGrst suggestion,
let mc ask-what possible.justification .
has IMr. Chambcrl-iin in suggesting at
any ralo so far as Canada^s concerned,
that a preference on whtut given by the
Old country would result in a preference
given, by .Canada on.Britieh oiamifact*
urcs? ,'• ..
' The manui-ictursrs of Canada have a
strong and exccoilingly well organized
association for the advancement of their -.
interests known as the Canadian Manufactures Association.   Last summer -a
large delegation consisting of over two
hundred members of this association
-took a trip to Europe for pleasure and .     ,
when in England. _ number of the lead-
ing.members of the partyihad an*inter-
view with Mr. Chainborlain.   Tlio said •
association   publishes  an exceedingly       , "
well edited and well conducted  monthly journal called "Industrial  Canada."
The Association at ptesent is engaged
in-a crusade-for hiuher fprbtCs'tive  du
tics in Canada.   The piet-ent Canadian
tariff i».a high protective tariff but tho   .
manufacture**.* areiiot satisfied and aro
pushing strongly for  a heavy inciease.
"Industrial Canada" .a-.fi strong supporter of Mr. Chainborlainaiid-hls fiscal
proposals for the British Empire    Tho
said association, in casa it-would accomplish    its    policy    of      raising   the",    ■
Cnnadian tariff to.euch a point that it *    ",.
w ill fully and   comtileteiy protect tho
ninniiliicturoi-B of Canada by excluding- .    .
as for as possible all foreign mauufact-
ured goods including-British goods, is
willing that a still_higher tariff kIiou hi '
be unforced against the United States
and other foruign',n*-tnuf*ii-iurcr.s but
not against British maiiiifaciurers.
Whut poeeiblo advanrage this kind of '
a preference would be to the British •
mariufiicturer, is difrieitlt to eomprc,-"
Lend. However, this proposed policy
was fully explained' to Mr. Chamberlain hy the members of th'e delegation
abovo 1'isfercd to, last pjinmier ami according to.'Industrial Canada'' ho gavd
his unqualified support to it.
I have no knowledge of the condition
of affairs in other colonics, but it is
quite clear Irom the attitude taken by"
the Canadian Manufactures'Association.
not only in their said.organ "Industrial o
Canada" but also in speeches mado by
prominent members at public meeting*
in Canadaand by members of the Housa
of Commons, representing their views
that so far as they are concerned they
MlLnM7cr_coosont_to„any_r.edue!ioi! ■'
.whatever iii the prcsentCanadian tariff
against British goods but will use all
their power and influence in iiicreasiiij-
tho game until the prohibitive point is
reached. ' y
Unless the members of the delegation
who had the interview.with Mr. Chamberlain nro deliberately, misrepresent*
.liv;,lil!iijho.is not.only aware .of tbo
posltion'taken but entirely approves of '
tlio sum0.7
When tho Liberal party pf Canada
wore in opposition they introduced into
tho House of Commons a resolution declaring iu fitvor of giving British goods
11 preference in Canada, and this preference was tn bo given without any ro-
garrt to any net ion that might '10 taken
by the Imperial parliament In the way
of giving a piiptorencn to Canada. This
resolution aftei' long dnhatn, was

A sample of each variety is planted

For several years it has1 been known;
that there has'jbccji a 5cra--.*il*-Je for the:
Kaien '-Island lowhsite- As far Jbiick'aSi
1903 it would seem that the Grand'
Trunk Pacific engineers had their attention attracted to lhat spot. Thc
news in some way got out presumably
without the'sanction of the officials, of
the company, w|io squglit for'. various
good reasons to keep ' it very 'close,
Suspicions of various kinds have been
aroused as to the way in which the
news was communicated, but no official announcement has ever been made
in Ihe mailer,        , -1

These applications"were refused;   It is
said that the land given for tho   town-
site was under a reserve placed upon it
during the regime of Forbes G. Vernon
as chief commissioner of public  landa,
Mr. Vtr.ion hinjsclf has  always, held,
lhat the island'was under wserve,' ni-1
though at thu tifiic thc   maps  did' not
show lho lnil't as un island, but ns pari
of llie mainland.
