W* ngnt our inability to reproduce
the whole of Pnni-itr Duntmuir'i letter
to the public,   -Owing; to it*  grlat
length we have not apace enough to
tptre, but What it givin below will
glv* our nadar* an fair understanding
of it* moat important featuru.
Mr,-Dunimuir. after a tew opening
remarke concerning himself, taket up
the railway question and proccetdt to
uy:  That measure, I may add, wat
framed in'accordance with what the
Government thought wai the expres-
bed and' well understood wishes of the
people in regard to the measure of control lhe Ooverninent ihould exercise
[over railway! attitted by the province,
and what they believed to be aonnd
public policy.    The  conditions   were
tuch as I wat willing, us a private individual In promoting the extension of
the E. k N. Kailway north, to.accept;
and  -were conditional   upon the co
operation We felt we were entitled to
on the part ot the "Dominion Government.   .'. ''.   . i-ipito po'iiiioh   thia
Government has taken is that owing
to the large revenue derived from Brit
ith Columbia* th* Dominion should,
and ia in duty bound to aatitt in railway, building fn this jirovinci, in at
lean the ratio of two to one; and that
when the province glvu aid tii railway ccmpaniei there ahould be a mea-
���nreof control and a fair return in
money* for the  aid  and  privileges
granted.    It is laid tht conditions tht
Government imjiosed- Were lis? severe j*
but it innat te remembered that tub
atantlal aid Wartxpecisd fromO.tawa;
aud in our representation! we offered
to modify our policy in any reasonable
wty conformable . with  lhe views of
the Government tlieia in order to secure itico-opertiioii.   The public mutt
understand    that   with   our  limited
financial resources,  and wil li to giuch
ol our railways alienated  to lhe Dominion', this or uuy oilier Government
would bankrupt 'the province if it aided all tho railways | rppoied,  and got
noihitig from  tin-in In return.   Fen
people realiie that about four times
the amount ol revenue goes to Ottawa
from Brltlth Columbia than ii received
from all sources in tho previnu by the
provincial treatury, and wa only get. a
little over oae-third back in the way ot
sulsaidiu and  appropriations.   How,
than, ire we te build all the railways,
tie., II Ihe Term* of the Union an uot
to Im readmitted, and. we are not to receive a much larger than ol what we
contribute to the Dominion.
The policy ot the Goverument hat
bnn and it, not only to nrge on the Dominion. Government to relieve ut (rem
Oriental immigration, but to tak* up
tha burden ol railway and aliipbuild-
Ing, and fiahery development, or hand
ut back tuch athare of our contribution* ai will enable the people ofthe
province to if) it for tbemulvu.   With
a population -the tmallut oi all the
provlncu, Britiih Columbia it tte pro-
vlnu that dots th* mul for Canada.
It ha* In. 30 yeai* paid to th* Dominion 116,000,000 raori tban it hu got
baok.   .  ... .   We have atked for-a
convention between the two Governmeut* lo review the whole facte ol tht
can, and by a fair, open aud Impartial Invutigaliou arilve at a readjustment.
Mow, then, I oom* to my position In
regtrd to Mr. Martin. Lut session,
u everybody knowi, wheu the Government'* polioy In regard to railways was
wu being formulated,, and attar it had
been tubs-pitted to the Houu, trtmend-
out preuure wu brought to bear onus

lb* V- V. _ E, I aha.ll not refer to
nature of the agitation or to thou who
promoted it*. Tb* ory wai for competition in rail way*, and agalnat the
C. P,,R. Owing to the attitude of a
number ol supporter* of the Govern
mt.it on tbit. qaution, a critii wu
created. - Na other Government in British Columbia poulbly *vtr had to

to wrmi, wbioh praotioally meant tb*
wtluilon of all competition to far aa
the building of th* Coait-Kooteuay
lin* was'concerned.   We wore -practi
cally held up and with a gun nt onr
headt atked to turrender. or submit to
defeat.   Because we.refused to be held
up in that fashion,, the Government
hat been denounced at. tools, oMbe
C. P. B.   So far from beiug* tied down
lo that corporation or controlled by itt
Influence, I will juet my lhat the V.
V. k E. would have, got the subsidy
bad the oompany accepted the oondition* laid down in the Act, and they
kmw i*.    Moreover, if ihey had beeu
Willing to build the whole line over the
Hope mountain the Government would
have wi.lnitly inet them and assitted
them.    The company would not bj
agree.   They wanted to be allowed to
bulls! the 80 milet at each end under
ihe terras of. the Act, and.earn the subsidy for the 60 miles.   In tbat cau,
tbey were willing to wait forever, if
necessary, to get. the Dominion tub
sidy.    Ih there a man in Britiah Columbia who has. the hardihood to lay
the Government ihould have entered
into auch an an agreement 1   It waa
at that time I learned of a movement
amopg certain membera of the Home,
including .tome ol my supporters,  to
defeat the Government,.   It was at.
this critical time that the members of
the  Opposition,  who declared themselves   iu   accord; with   the railway
policy of the Government, volunteered
their support, and I was very glad to
get it.   As a consequence tho plana to
defeat us did not mature.    I may have
been mistaken in the course I pursiSed,
and even as lo llie events which influenced me���and I take, upon myulf the
entire responsibility���but I felt that 1
was entitled, in filling one of the va-
caitt portfolios,  to recognize tho support of 'the Opposition at * critical
time,  by selecting Mr. Brown.   Ah I
bave said, I may have made a mistake,
hut whether right or wrong,  I acted,
not as a politician, but at least in a
way that appeared to ine to be right.
Men who Complain about Mr.  Martin
going over to the Government mutt not
forget the men who were willing to go
over to the Opposition to make a new
Referring to the vncanciea ia the
cabinet, Mr. Dunsmuir aaya the Government must'be. the judge of tbe best
time in which to tnakeits own arrangements and define the polioy upon which
the elections are to be held.
There were other reaaons for delay,
In the first place tha .Government had
undertkken a most important matter,
the survey of the Coait-Kootenay line
over Hope Mountains, and we wanted
a report as to the feaaibility and coat
ol tbat line. Hon. W.C. Weill, Chief
Commissioner, as so soon as he received a preliminary report from Mr. Dewd-
ney, went eaat, to take up the subject
of coramunicttiou iuto that country
with the ureral railway companies
and tke Dominion, Government; alto
the subject of the Canadian Northern,
which will soon reaeh the Hocky
Mountains, and concerning which **e
are carrying on negotiationi at tht
present time. Upon hi* rsturn Mr.
Prentice had gone east, and thn Christmas holidays intervening the matters
tor contideration eould not be fully deoided upon. We have tines been discussing and formulatiag plans on rev*
oral moat important tubjecte preliminary to the elections being held, and the
mostlng ol the Haute, and we are uow
prepared to iubm.it them te the country.
At an earnest ot our desire, now
that we have a definite knowledge or
the proposed route via Hope Mount alu,
to afford direct communication to the
southern interior, aud in order that
competition may. be maintained without diitriinination to railway interests, theJGovernment ha* mad* a pro*
posal to join hand* with tbe Dominion
Government.to build the Hue over the
Hope Mountain into the Similkameen.
as a joint Government undertaking,
and give all railways toll and equal
running powen over it upon certain
terine, tht ume ae it propoted in the
cau of the New Weitminatei- bridge,
Thi* woold, of cooree, depend upon
making suitable arrangements with
lho CPB. and lb* V. V. A E. to nu it
.wbtn built. In ro doing I hay* iti-
pulated that it la not to be regarded at
a preoes-���nt for *r agiinit tb* general
principle of Government ownership, to
tar a* tb* provinoe is concerned, or. **
applicant* 10 other 'Toad* nnder oon
tideratlon ; but limply ai a proposal
that might  wisely be adopted in a
���pecial etas and under pecaliar coudi-
tioui. The province alone could not,
nor do I believe it is the business of
the province to, undertake the building
of railway* eo its own behalf, but ee
(art*.this.particular piece ot line!*
ooucerned, where aome one oompany
must lie subsidised to the exclusion of
all otlier lines, by the Dominion and
tbe province uniting on a certain division ol cost, it would afford the competition dnired and provide for all
time to come againet the trade of she
oountry being monopolie. d by any rail
way corporation.
The gist of Mr. Dunsmuir's remarks
on tbe subject of immigration is to the
effect that the Government have devised a eohenie for placing tracts of
land from 1,000 acres in extent upward* on th* market for settlers, oa
the easiest possible terms.
Ths Government recognizes also tha
importance of redistribution; hut recognizes as ef mill greater importance
that when a measure is introduced it
should be as fair and as comprehensive
as possible. Natural boundaries, resources, and special conditions of uch
district should be considered, and having this in view, the Government is
prepared at the coining snsion to deal
with the matter in a wny that will
make it satisfactory to all parti of tha
province, In the way proposed all
sections will bt consulted and all interest! considered su that when tho
measure is submitted the House will te
iu a position to judge intelligently and
aot accordingly.
The memorial of the mine ewnen
setting forth (heir grievances has had
the consideration of the Government,
and as a mine owner myself I naturally
sympathize with them in whatever .
degree the laws may work a hardahip,
because as one of our prinoipnl industries, it deserves all the encouragement
possible and should be relieved of every
unnecessary restriction. Hon. J. H.
Turner, last snsion, announced, a*
Minister of Finauce, that the question
of taxation as a wholj would be dealt
with in it general Act Ior which information would be forthcoming during
the recess. One grievanco complained
of is the incislenue of the two per cent,
lax as between high grade and low
grade ores. We reqognize lhat in certain eases that may be inequitable and
we are considering its readjustment ia
the proposed legislation. Mining i*
affected by measurei both Dominioa
and provincial in their nature, and if
the Dominion Government at Ottawa
will join with us we are willing to
agree to a joint commission in which
all phases of the industry may bt investigated and reported upon at on*
The Premier then takes up the subjects of shipbuilding, fisheries aud cold
storage, each of which will be develop-
el nnd impoved. Au cffoit will be
made also to hav* freight rates lowered in the interests of fanners.

Tbe chicken tbtt It born on or befon the
1st day ol March la worth downs born In
Mav or June, when all the bene want to
tit. Tb* trouble Is to find the ben who Is
Incline- to Incubation In tb* month of
Ftbrutry. Qtnerally tpuklng, th* mutt
bt a March chicken hens-. Therefore to
have March chickens you yuust fint havt
March cklckena. It h Ilk* tbt great economic proportion' To make money you
mutt havt monty to make lt with. However, 11 li not ntoestary to Inherit March
pullets. Tbey nn be acquired at reasonable rales, and ivory practical hen keeper
���atlde fnm thon wholesale gentlemen
who can stevote all tbeir time ud attention to tbe monumental task of making
Incubators Inoubate, and who an oonre-
qnutly Independent of tbe natural meant
of Incubation���will tell you that the nrly
bo/n pullet, who It under a tort of natural
compulsion to Ity early hortelf, It, even
when of no breed tt all, ot mora value
then tbe high bred fowl who decllnat to
lay uy tggt until tho balmy tprlngtlme
hu come ud eggt nn be bought tor lt
centt a doun. ���
Tbe eooentrloltles ot tbe fitting ben an
beyond all account. No power on nrtb or
beaven nn prevent certain hint from sitting half tbeir lW.es. Tbey will tit on good
eggt, on bad tggt, on eblna eggt, on
stones,onstloki,onnothlngatall. Turned
out of one place, they will sit In any other. By eotual oxperlnient a certain Plymouth Rook (of whose breed one of tbe
many noble qualities Is broodlncss) per-
srlittd In sitting for six weeks Tunning,
though she wss given no eggs at all aud
wu treated with tho greatest contumely,
being moved from pillar to post andnffliot-
ed with eharp cornered cobblestones and
dally driven away with violence from her
pathetic attempt to oonvcrt then Igno-
mlnous rocks Into tbe noble ones of Plymouth. At tbe end of tbe sis weeks She
did give up further sitting, but sbe ap-
pured to entertain no grudge on aoeount
of her treatment and would on occasion
come and nt out of tbe handa of her late
tormentors. It wat In tbe autumn wbtn
tbo mtde tbli quixotic attempt, and she
bad already In tbli same year brought off
two One broods of chickens���one in early
March nnd Ibe other in June.
Otber bene will never alt at all. Th*
white Mlnorcat���those bent with great
combe, wblob look eitotly liko roottert
and are called "Catalans" by tbe Spanish
���will lsy perhaps mora egge in a yur
than any other tort ot hen, but tbty will
not lay them In cold weather, nnd It It unlikely tbat any one of tbem wot over
known to batch a brood of chickens. Tht
Mlnorcat will, Indeed, sometimes begin to
tit, but they Item to bt Under the linpm-
tion thtt tbreodtyt ought to be, in all
coneclenoo, a long enough time In which
to batch out nn egg, nnd at tho osplratlon
of about thu time they will abandon tht
attempt with a great flutter and much denunciatory oratory. If tbey are fastened
down on tho nest with a board placed
above tbeir backs, they will stand up as
high u tbt* un under tho board and let
tbe cold air addle tbeir eggs. It li doubtful If even auy human being, male or female, wloked or pious, Christian or pagan,
tvtr go* through without profanity an attempt to mika a Minorca hen tit. There
en other breeds of nonslttera, which are
not merely too nnmerout but also too contemptible to mention. Tbo Plymouth
Bock will not lay eo many egga tn a year
at tht Minorca, but ahe will lay wbat she
eon lay when you want thom, and she
Will perpetuate ber kind.
Strang* to ny, another kind ssf bea that
makes a good mother I* the game ben.
She ntmi to bt engaged In an attempt to
prove tbet a certain amount of aniato-
nlanttm ll not Inconsistent with a proper
regard for tbe duties of motherhood. A
very peaceful gcntlonian, not unconnected
with tbe work of tht Humane socloty,
mcvtd into tho country threo or four year*
ago. Having ocoailon to purcbon two nr
thru nttlng* of eggt, bo bought one ot a
good working woman, who lived on the
outeklrte of tht town, and who happened
to have rnalo nlatlvnof tportlng proollvl-
tln, though tbe gentleman did not know
that, ud would hardly have cared If be
bad knewn. Tbe tportlng proclivities of
thou ptnona could hardly affect the bene'
tgg* raited on the plan, The letting of
tggi turned ont buulltully, and In dut
time aome exquisite little red chickens
wen running about with tbo old gny hen
wbo ted bnn their foster mother. Tht
ohlokint wan to pretty that they wen admired tbove ill othen on Ibe plan. Tbey
grew epsut, and btfon long* thtlr owner
discovered that tbty ware engaged In war-
fan mswt of tbo time, eithor with one another or with otber little ehlekcna Ro*
doubtable flgbtert tbey wen, too, and
while any om of them would easily whip

By and by a village tradesman wbo happened to bt at tht plan one day noticed
