Sixty cents a day, and that paid

-■Great Britain, is all -that Canada
wants to see done for. trooper Mulloy
-who .had the light "shot out of his eye*s
forever while representing this country on the battlefields-of fSoutli Africa _
Three thod'sand "'five hundred dollars per annunrh and that paid by the
taxpayers of Canada,' is what this
country is" doin? lor the patriots
who saved money out ol
their talarles while they represented
Canada in the cabinet of the nation.
"He fought for Britain; let Britain
pay him." These arc words thai
would not uniairly represent tSir
Frederick Borden's argument.
•They fought for the party;Jet the
party pension them'   are the words
that would present the same argu
meat against the gift* of $3,500 per
'  annum to the pensioners of peace.
There was no . precedent forthe
proposal to supplement by a Canadian ;*iubsidy the British pension ol
$218.40 per annum allowed to Trooper Mulloy. j,
A precedent was soon found for tlu
proposal to create a Canadian pension of $?»5C0 per annum to Hon. Clifford Sitton, to Hon. A. G. Blair,
for Sir Mackenzie Bowell, in addition
to the indemnities they receive as
Members ot parliament, or the professional incomes tliey earn.
A young Canadian' goes out to rep
resent his country in war, isblinded
• tor life, has his whole bright earthly
future ruined, and Canada, through
her parliament, tells him that this
1 country is too poor to supplement his
miserable imperial ■-'■pension of sixty
cents a day.
Hon. A. G. Blair goc3 from an ill-
paid post in a provincial government
to a portfolio at Ottawa and is trans
lated through  the  chairmanship ol
.the railway commission to a pension

The sixty cents a. day pensioner ol
war is blinded for life and unable to
pu.-t.ue success on the,, lines of his
chosen career, ■"'     *
The $3500 per annum pensioner ot
peace is unharmed in body or mind
and able, to draw perhaps not $10,000
per annum but a Ihrgc retainer for
pleading the canse of the C P. K.
Poor Trooper Mulloy, blinded for
lite in battle for the honor of Canada
gets liis sixty cents a dny from the
imperial government and not a cent
irom the country he so nobly represented.
Poor Clifford Sifton, 'fattened in the
service of party, young and nblo to
Mjoy hit wealth or practice his provision, gets $8500 per annum at the
. txpense of the country which lie
never served except on salary.
A parliament that could croato a
precedent in favor of $7000 por an
nam to 11. L. l-toi-don, tliat could find
precedents iu favor of $8500 pensions
,to a lot of able-bodied politicians
might have found somo way to add n
few Canadian dollars annually to the
pittance which over-burdened Great
Britain dolcB out to Trooper Mulloy.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has had «
hand in thc creation of a lot of preco-
dttntB more dangerous than the-precedent of granting nn allowance to
Trooper Mulloy.
Thero is no danger thai Canada
trould bo called upon to grant pen
lions to many veterans who havo snf

-525,000 a year, Made private agreement wilh-two prominent shippers lo
tjiye rebates on certain shipments.
Wednesday—A public mass meeting
held Inst night to condemn my methods
of finance. The people - are going
crazy about what they call lhe greed of
llie corporations.' The newspapers are
to blame for exciting the country to. the
-olid institutions. If it hadn't been for
.hem - we should have escaped ihis
lisastrous insurance muddle that, has
lone so much lo disturb'llie business of

none ofthe public's business anyway.
Saturday — Tho grand jury is
threatening fo indict mc. , I don't
know what the country is coining to.
One ol my weak-kneed directors called in this morning nnd says we've
got only ourselves to blame for this
violent clamor against us. He says
we're trying to work a good thing to
death and that we ought to go slow,
I told hiin he could go and not be
slow about it, cither. Uud my tax
assessments reduced Irom $250,0C0
