Nanaimo, in  the worst way, want it
settled and  settled for good.    Thoir
annual     celebration    comes    off   ou
Monduy.    Tlie Committee has put in
weeks of    arduous     work and have
propured a  programme which eclipses any previous    performance.    All,
that is .wanted to make the  day the j BomutiliuK out
success it deserves    to bo   Is    good   the
weather, and it  Is to be   hoped that
fortune will smile upon tho city's efforts.
Thore will be the usual large crowd
from Ladysmith. The towns vory
largoly depend upon oach other for
tho success of their demonstrations.
If this ■woro only borne more in
mind by the citizens of oach town,
there would lie less extreme
recrimination and no soro feeling,
consummation most devoutly to bo
wished for. It is the duty of the
town to support Nanaimo on the
25th if it wishes to mako a success
of its own celebration on tho First
of July.
A splendid list of attractions has
been prepared, an adequate and convenient train service secured, and a
good dny's sport and enjoyment is
assured to every visitor, Nanaimo
expects a lurgo crowd from .here and
she will not be disappointed if only

OTTAWA,    May   22.-The inajuliy.
into Hodgins' charges ef fraud and
lover classification in connection with
the construction of the trans-emtin-
entul railway was adjourned to June
3rd.     In cross-examination of Major
Hodgins yesterday    afternoon.    Mrs.
Murphy counsel for the transcontinental railway commission, sought to
have the deposed engineer admit that
only Commissioners Raid and Young
hod spoken to him about more I4b-
al classification and that there/ore
he had no right to make complaint
about the commission as a body aa
he had done   in his letter  to    the
Victoria Colonist.
The witness pointed out in reply,
that all the commissioners, including
Messrs. Parent and Mclsaac, had
joined in appointing Gordon Grant,
as inspecting engineer, with full authority to over-rule all division engineers in matter of classification.
This appointment had been protested against by the chief engineer. It
was carried through, however, and
after Grant's appointment "Quebec
classification" was put in force,
which wns classifying cement material as solid rock.
Murphy     pressed the witness    to

they huve not adopted the Yale habit of growing football hair, for
they now find that they will be at a

use of "'rats," large bondoes, and

There are many persons in tho
town to whom the Market Square
lias beon both an eyesore and
mystery. Matterless how much was
done by tbe city to improve the
streets, or by the citizens to inv-
prove their property, thore was always that ugly place of stumps
right in the centre of the town. A-
gain It was quito as dUflcult to determine what to do with it os to ox-
plain why it was there. For what
purposo had tliisTsiiuure heen left
vacant, containing as it does some
of tho best residential sites in the
oity? Its first effect was to Irretrievably mnr the whole appearance
of tho city. The second was .to
drive citizens away out Into the
bush to their great inconvenience,
nnd to inci-on.se tbe cost of making
and maintaining tho city streets!
There was nevor nothing to Indicate
that Ladysmith would ever become,
a market town and require a square
for her fairs and the transaction of
horse and cattle business. Even as
a square the enclosure is spoiled. A-
round tho fswr sides there is on 80-
foot street area, and Second avenuo
nnd High street bisect it ot right
angles, still it is thero and it is
high time that something was done
with' it.
The greater interest therefore attaches to lho suggestion put forward at tho meeting ol lho Citi
zens' League on Thursday eveulng by
Secretary Wilson. Ho mado a pro
position that tho squaro bo cleared
and converted Into a pork to which
tired mothers could retreat with
their children for nn hour's rest. His
point was that every city should
have an open space for the common
enjoyment of its citizens. They
would find thot by tho time tho 0.
PR. had completed tholr present
clearing operations thoy -would not
havo many v shady places |„ which
they could seek shelter from ths
heat of tho summer sun. Ho therefore strongly favored tho Idea of
turning tho square Into a park. A
few shade trees could bo planted,
somo benches and shelters erected,
nnd a green made for the children.
The square was convenlont to everybody, nnd somothlng of tho kind
had been suggested they ought    to
Mr. Wilson's proposition wos very
favorably received by tho members
of the Loague presont; and It Is woll
worth the while of overy citizen to
Klvo It careful consideration. It Is
none too soon In tho llfo of the
101)11 to th'nk over snd, „ vm,Mt.
The (rr.<wtost objection to the whole
schomo is thnt tho square Is totally
unsulted to tho purposo of n .pork.
Tn addition to tho dlsndvnntngcs of
n vorylng nnd difficult grade, It
could novor bo made Into ni

cut right through It nt right angles.

OTTAWA, May 16.— The Government attempt -to obtain control of
franchise and registration in Manitoba, British Columbia and port of
Ontario, has not yet succeeded. The
debate on the Election Bill continued until Wednesday -.light with the
opposition sturdily refusing to accept the moasure. On Tuesday Sir
Wilfrid found it necessary to take the
floor and make a vague offer of conciliation. In a general way; the Premier announced his willingness to ap
point judges to deal with the lists
in the provinces where intervention
is proposed. .< Tho Opposition-. hod
previously stated that it was willing to accept such federal action
os might be necessary in any Manitoba constituencies where' Federal
and Provincial-electoral- boundaries
crossed each .other,, provided the rearrangement were placed ln the
hands of Judgos. But only a few
constituencies are in this-position,
and it becomes, clear that the intersecting of constituencies in only an
What the machine docired to do
was tu tako from tho two provinces
which do not. hove, Liberal Governments, tho absolute control of., tho
electoral list and franchise, assuming
powor to odd and strike off names,
doing this on tho eve of the 'eioction with little notice, and with evory opportunity to reppat iho "red
lino" outrage of 1904, with extensions into Manitoba and Ontario.
Sir Wilfrid's-partial backdown may
be real. or. ouly apparent. He has
a fine gift for using language with
double meanings, and tho uncortoln
proposition of Tuesday could not bo
ticcoptcd until the Opposition could
find out what it meant.
Tho Conservative position was
I clearly defined in the debato. The
| party wos and is ready for a general Dominion franchise system, treating all the provinces, .alike,, placing
registration in tho control of Judges,
giving full publicity and ample' no
tice, right of appeal, and all possl
ble opportunity to obtain a complete
fair; judicial list in which both parties can have confidence. The party
will not accept a Fedoral control of
franchise, applying only to two' or
three Conservative, provinces, and
used to override ; at the last moment before the election tbe lists
prepared by Judges under provincial
law, which lists are known to be as
carefully and. honestly mado aa those
of any of the other provinces which
the Government does not propose to
disturb. They bcliove that tho people of Manitoba and British Columbia are no less capable than,those
of Saskatchewan or Quebec, or Nova
Scotia, of preparing their election
lists. They are able to prove that
far more .errors -have occured -and
more, offences , have, been committed
against the electoral rights of the
people ln other provinces than in
Manitoba. Therefore they stand out
against this discrimination and resent the insult contained in it.
Such ls the language of the Manitoba Conservative Members, Dr,
Roche, Schaffner and Mr. Staples.
Such is the declaration of Mr. Borden and his comrades from other
provinces. They have ehdwn that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier found no - cause
for Inference because of t franchise
wrongs committed in Nova Scotia
by the dominant party; that no action was suggested when the Rothesay election listiconsplracy in New
Brunswick adder more than 400
forged names to an honest list of
less than 100 in one district ot tho
constituency formerly represented by
Mr. Pugsley, now one of Sir Wilfrid's colleagues. The present conspiracy—for lt is really a plot between, the Government at Ottawa
and the same Manitoba machine
which carried out the red line outrage,—was attempted ln 1908, and
That failure is an interesting
story Sir Charles Fltzpatrick, now
Chief Justice of Canada, was Minister of Justice. When the scheme was
brought to him to carry through he
rejected it with scorn, and, made It
Impossible for anyone else to complete the programme. Everything
had been arranged, the bill was prepared and printed, but the Minister
of Justice smashed that conspiracy.
When Sir Charles Fltzpatrick gave
place to Mr. Aylesworth the Manitoba machine took heart again add
the deadly part of the bill of 1908
was tacked on to the electors reform measure of 1908.
When Sir Wilfrid was told of this
In tho House this week he emphatically contradicted the.whole story.
He declared that no bill had, been
printed or prepared and no such
moosure hod been contemplated. The
Premior asserted this positively1 ln
the House on threo occasions, declaring on Tuesday:
"No act was contemplated by 'the
Government and no bill was prepared, that I say most decisively,"
(Hansard page S871.)
Yet. after giving the Premier, a
chance to reconsider and inquire and
thon receiving a third contradiction,
Mr. Staples was ablo to produce, .
and hand to Sir Wilfrid in printed .
form, Just as it came from the Gov- «
ernment Bureau, tbe draft of the .
bill of .1908 on the same lines as
that.now before the House. Sir Wll.

Commissioner Oassels investigated

for six weeks. It Is suggested that
when, he gets through with his Ex-
chequerCourt business it will be vacation time and that the inquiry
will be resumed toward the end of
the year, perhaps after the elections
The Commission has made some progress, for the first witness called
from the department was the chief
engineer, and he distinctly and emphatically stated that he shared the
views of Commissioners Fyshe and
Basin In* regard to "lack of conscience" in purchasing certain supplies. Col.- Anderson has been' ln
the service a third of a century and
has held the position of chief engineer since 1880. Down to a few
yoars ago he had' charge of lighthouse buildings and equipment, bouys
and other aids to navigation. Then
the control of lights, buoys and everything In that connection, except
the construction of buildings, was
taken away from him and glvon to

pany promoted by Mr. Willson, whlc

Col. Anderson declared his firm ne
lief that contractor Wlllson's ln
fluence was used with the Govern
ment to have Mr. Fraser placed
charge of this spending branch. The
Chief Engineer himself had reported
and protested, against the wholesale
and expensive ] changes which resulted in large contracts to Mr. Will-
son. These large deals could not
have been made had Col. Anderson
remained ln charge. While ho stated
that he had no proof of dishonesty
on the part of Mr. Fraser in tho
matter of these contracts, he could
not help entertaining suspicions.
This witness did not volunteer such
testimony. In fact he urged that
his suspicions should not be given
as > evidence, but since counsel Insisted upon his giving opinions, he
did so. They were.based upon the
general view that the extravagant
expenditure and the unjustifiable contracts began when Mr. Fraser tobk
charge. He- had a strong conviction that Mr. Fraser's promotion
was due to the contractor's Influence
Contractor Willson was himself on
the stand a short time and denied
that he had anything to do with
Fraser's promotion. He. however,
made the interesting statement that
when hs organised the -Company,
which sold carbide to the Government he secured for himself 140,000
worth of stock In payment for hls
patents and of this ho gavo $10,000
to the late Hon. James Sutherland,
at that time member without office
In the Laurier Government. Mr.
Wlllson's statoment is that this $10-
000 stock was a payment to Mr.
Sutherland for the services of tho
letter in -inducing the Bronson family
to take stock in the concern, But it
will be soon thot with one of the
contracting firm in the Ministry
might not bs necessary for Mr. Will-
son to personally interfere In securing the promotion of Mr. Fraser to
the position of Superintendent of
Lights. Mr. Sutherland became
Minister of marine in 1902 and was
afterwards Minister of Public Works.
