ter Turner Made hi* 13th and last bltd-
get (peeoh In tbe house today, and
announced that the sessidn now drawing; to a "flow would in all human p'ro-
babllty be the laat one lie wonld ever
attend. When'this announcement wa*
made an impressive silence pervaded
the cham'ber antl galleries and the old
veteran (Jt sixteen se.siona waB hardly
able to artic'jlate sVhen he spoke of his
long aasoe'latloa with the public affairs
of the province, with the legislature
and "With it* members, antl -of the uniform courtesy he had reoelved from
those with whom 'he had been asaoijia-
ted on both aide* of the house. All
tb* older member, of tbe house were
visably hffeoUMl, while the younger
ones were strongly moved.
Altogether it made* very im'preisive
adene with whioh to olose a masterly
exposition of the financss of the province which the minister made in a two
Hours' speech, whioh praotically ended
ft long and *u"��eful career,in the house
and in the finance department.
This was the first, intimation which
haa been given of Mr. Turner's appointment to'the agent-generalship iu Lon*
don. though it haa been known for
pom* time tlrat he wonld receive it.
During th* sixteen years Mr. Turner
has spent ih publio lite in* British Columbia, he ha. eft mfc-fiy occasions as
mem Iser, minister and premier been most
severely oi'iiicised, and his official
"courtle condemhed by press and people,
yet today he ia without a personal enemy and hi* political foes hold him in
tl.e highest esteem. His honesty of
purpose ha. never been questioned, and
the announcement that he ii aoon tu
leave public life will be received witb
very general regret.
The finance minister announced in
his speech th&t he intended introducing
������������1.111 whiel. Would make the Government inieyeitinitot the money, lendm.
by providing for au ovWdrsft, whioh
would allow the business ot the province being carried on without compelling the executive to float a loan at unfavorable ti'nVes, when ths GoVert.lr.ent
would ba at the mercy of the banker.
According to the budget speeoh the
province hold* asset* amounting to
twenty million* of dollars, in roads,
trail, building*, etc, while it* total
liabilities are less tban nine millions
of dollars, not deducting the (inking
fund, amounting to three millions, and
if the same increase of revenue and decrease of ex|*nditure continue* a* i.
���hown by the financial itatemeut of
tha last decade, in 1910 th* revenue
wilt be six millions andthe expenditure
but four millions of dollars. A few
yeara agoexpendltaHe exceeded revenue
by nearly GO per cent, whil* at present
it excsWds it only by about 10 psr e*nt.
Thi* latter ex'ce** alio include, thii
year*' addition* to capital account,
naw roads, build.rig*, etc., for the
running expenies of the Government
alone would leave a large surplus.
Mr. turner anticipates no trouble in
floating a loan ol any deiired magnitude *o long aa th* money i. td b* expended for Government works indeed
of in meeting ordinary Governmental
expenditure. He exploited th* Inten
tion of th* Government to aid in th*
battlement of muoh of th* unocoupis-d
farming landa of til* province. No
change in tb* mineral taxes need be ex*
ptoitd thi* year, but the Goverhment
ha* under consideration a plan for
completely nvieing th* **teo.ment
act, which would be eribodikd in s
bill and bronght down next aeuioi.
in which iom* tihangH In th* mineral
taxe* might be expectbd. The lumber
industries railway builliliR, .hip
building, pulp* mill* and agriculture
will bt aidstd and enedtiraged by the
th* budgtt Wai still Wing di.cut.es.
whin th* bttua* rose, anil the debate
wllltaconildutssl *t tonight'* se.aioii.
It U not belleveJ the debate will last
ov*r tomorrow, V* Brown snd Curtis
ar* the only member* who Will discus*
It from theatandpoint of oppo.Uio.iian.
it i* nut likely that th* *a**lou will
la��l Iouger thai, tha middUof uaxt
week, lor beginning tonight, by resol
ution.of the Isouw, two ssm.iou. will
b* held daily, so that bills may be ad-
vauced two stage* in ou* day. Thia
will aouii cl***.* the order paper and
th* Guvorumeut have verv few bills
still to offer. Martin's champerty bill
was squashed .all to pieces in committee
of the whole-Friday. It's author now,
refusal to recognl'xa 'it and it will
probabily be abandoned.   If pasiad it
ill not materially alter the preseut
law regarding champerty.
Smith Curtis informs us tbat be
will introdsicea bill providing (or compulsory arbitration of labor disputes,
and though'vary 1st* in the session he
hopes to secure ita paasage. Failing
thia hr will place every member of tl.e
house on record on this question. Mr.
Curtis evidently has an eye /for a
future campaign when aome of the
members  Will  bb  appealing to  the
Dear WorkingBien."
Curtia tried t6'explain bis position
on the railway question again today,
but was ruled out of order. This was
hi* third attempt since bolting the opposition party, but ha lias always been
ohoked off. Wilh the estimates out of
the way by Wednesday, the fight on
the loan bill will be oo the boards, but
it will likely prove a very small light
after all. With Martin's flop to the
Government and & peace patchod tip
witb the bolters frem the Government
rank* it is not likely that there si-ill
ba a dozen votes against the bill.
Thi* bill i* being received with favor
by all parties, Jt ia claimed that it
will abut out-the American roads
which seek to exploit the province for
their own benefit, tbat it ia directed
againat th* C. P. K., and tbat it wil!
eventually compel the Government to
construct th* roads as needed, thus
satisfying everybody but bonus hunters
and their frienda in the bouse. Wfth
this law the interes'ts of the province
will certainly be fully protected though
conitruction may be delayed in some
caee*. Now thit the bonus huntew
and promoters' agent* have learned
that they can get no Government money except hy actually constructing
railways, tliey hav. abandoned the
field, and the people are taking a clearer view of the situation and have dis-
s-svered thnt, the charges brought
again*,',tlie Canadian roads in Bfritish
Columbia were in moat cases founded
on falaehood and mteroprenentation.
Thev have diacovered that they have
boen shouting with ths crowd of paid
ageut* When tls,s-y could not tell oh
what their hostility wit* bassjd, ant)
they are now remeAlherlVig a few oi
the many tiling's this company have
done far the province and an doing,
especially for the farmer and miner,
and that .orporation ia fast regaining
that measure of public favor which it*
enemies claimed it had loat forever.
Th. Retirement of Wm. .Mi'N.l.ls.
The news of the retirement of Win.

Columbia House will be received with
genuine regret not onlv by the people
of Golden but, by a hoat of travelling

increased to twice it* original six*. In

FRIDAY. May 3, 1901.
We reproduce an article from the
Spokane Chronicle regarding the mica
mines cf Tele Jeaune Cache and would
napeetfully call the attention ol th*
Board of Trad* to th* per.i.t.nco witb
which tha Hevelstoke buiineu mtn ar*
pushing the claima of lhat town as a
supply point for ihe northern oountry.
The local Board of Trade ahould ba
jnst aa persisscnt in keeping to the
front tlie advantages ol the Golden-
Beaver route. Of course the Bon.
Chief Commissioner of Land* and
Work* know* wbich i* tha beat rout*,
but it would strengthen hi* hand* considerably to hav* an expression from
eur local board occasionally. Somc-
tim.a the per.istent msn win* ovtr a
mora favored rival became of hi* *g-
grass! veness, and our Board of Trad*
should not be satisfied merely with the
assurance that w* have tha b*��t route,
but keep ths question wall to th* fore
with th* Governmant and aak lor an
appropriation to improve aad extend
th* trail, for the Government must
���oon decide in favor of one of tha different rout**, for larg* parties ar*
going iuto that couutry thi* spring
���nd there i* no uvlng what a few
wwk* msy bring forth in the way ot
new di.cov.ries.
Tb* Government prop*** to hold
another scion in July or AuguK for
th* purpo.e of discussing th* Coaat*
Kootenay road. This will give the
peopl* an opportunity to (peak through
their representatives and let their
wilh** be kuown.
Tb* Government's railway policy
embodies th* principle* advocated by
th* Opposition in 1897, therefore
UsM.ra. Martin, Brown, Mcliine* aad
Stable* are not inconsistent in *upport<
ing lb* Government under present cir
Control of rates.
Four ner cent of gro.m*sirning��.
Th* right to purchaso at any time.
These are three important step,
leading towards the nationalization ol
B. or th* V. V. * E., or any othsr
company, . . . tbe Government propose a .ounder plan. If we aeei.t th.
road thoy tay, w* mu.t hav* tall
security for every dollar of pnblie
money that goes into it. We mu.t have
four per cent, of lb* groi* earning* **
a flrst charge on th* road wherewith
to tatiafy tbe interest on the people'*
loan, We mu.t have the right to take
over tha road for th* peopl* it any
tim* and without th* recognition of
any money vain* in th* charter. W*
mult, a* backwi ol th* road, control
it* rat**. . . . "Let u* hav*
���ecurity for onr investment* and control of the toads w* help to build," I*
the Government's policy.
Th* difference, ol th* C. P. B. and
tha V.V. k E. do not particnlarly concern the peopl* ol Britiih Columbia.
Let the big corporations fight their own
battle.. It ia for the Government, a*
representative* of the peopl*, to ae*
that the people's right* ar* protected
and aecured. Thi* is what th* Government provide* for in th* terms add
condition* upon whioh any grant tb
railway* under jthe bill ol th* leiilo*
willl be made,
If any Government ahould meet defeat through loyal adherence to each'*
principle, it would go down '��ith
honor, eortaln that the people would
���peedily nullify the action of the'r unworthy representatives. But th* Government will not go down. It will
liv* to carry forward th* good work it
hae ao well b*gun���governmant tor
th* people.

alao Ibr the tact that it was entinly com-

the advertising literature of the World'*
Dispensary Medical Association, proprietors and manufacturers of Dr. Pierce'a

Dr. Pierce's automobile has been tha
pioneer horseless vehicle. These wagons,
aent to every important section of the
country, are doing more than merely
advertise Dr. Pierce'a Remedies���they
are pioneers of progress1, heralds of th*

The offer that Dr. Pierce makes ta

without cost or charge the entire re*

Sir,-With an absorbing interest I
have read the evidence given before tho
Chinese Commission. That interest, I
may lay, ia largely the result ef a
fesr that much important evidence
which ought ta be forthcoming will
never be heard before the Commission,
thus thwarting its purpose and rendering abortive all effort to rid the ooun
try ot uu unnecessary evil. For Instance, what is known to nearly every
one is a system of rake oils extracted
from the Jape. Chinese and the lower
grade of foreign labor employed on the
railroads, in the ooast sawmill* and in
the canneries.
Tl.e rake-off consists in handing to
the foreman by eacli employee lu hi*
charge an amount stipulated by tbe
interpreter and prearranged between
him and the foreman. Iu one coast
sawmill where some 80 Jap* were employed the monthly rake-off amounted
to $160, which was allocated, (not
stolen) by tha foreman, the interpreter
and one or two ot tbe office clerks,
The same thiTig obtains on the railroad with parhapa the difference that
there are more wilh whom tbaepoil*
are to be "divided" and possibly the
takeoff is larger. Any employee re-
I using to rake off it "fired" inatanier.
Mr. Foley, a* the representative of
labor interests In particular ou th*
Commission ought ta lilt these iniquitous practices and, Sir. I believe he
will discover thereat reason why Japs,
ke., are preferred ta white men in tbe
employ of cnucerus mentioned. Thank
heave, there is neither Jap, Chiuaiuau,
