Victoria, B.C., Fob. t—During the
course ol the continuation ol the debate, Premier McBride m an address
ol over au hour's duration, look oc-
cubMon to assure the leader ol thc op
position that his fears, as expressed
earlier in the afternoon that, the gov
ernment would lie found remiss iu
safeguarding thc iutereBtB of thc
people of British Columbia tn the
matter of proposed legislation this
session, were quite groundless. Thc
premier, without in any wuy disclos-
ing the dctuils of the policy ol thc
government on the question of railway development, declared that when
the railwav legislation wns brought
down it would bc found that thc interests ol both the mainland of thc
province nnd Vuncouver island had
been  equally cared  for,
He announced that tbc railway policy of the government would be laid
down on such broad guage lines that
nil portion of British Oolumbia
would be benefited and ol the judg -
ment of thc people on this mntter he
bad every confidence.
Mr. McBride also dealt with the
land dolicy of the government ns it
bud been culled into question by the
member lor Alberni. Mr. Brewster,
The latter had declared that thc government had no land policy, that it
hud bevn forced with the necessity of
either adopting the poliey of the Lib
crals in this connection or doing
without one, nnd had chosen the lat
ter alternative.
The premier refused this suggestion
und, amid tbc applause of the house
demonstrated that the actions ot the
government in regard to the throwing of tbe land of the province open
to settlement hud been all that could
be desired from the point of view of
those desirous of going on. the land.
Mr. McBride stated that the policy of
the government hnd been in the matter of lands, as in all other mutters,
to confer the benefits of legislation
on all the people, irrespective of their
affiliations, and declared that while
be hail never gone over the list of
land advertisements he had licen informed that even more Liberals than
Conservatives might be found taking
up land, and that even Socialists
might be very well represented.
I Tbe opening report of the royal
commission on taxation was referred
to by the premier, who pointed out
that when iu 1H04 lt had been lound
necessary to ask the fnrmers ol British Columbia for heavier contrilm -
tions to the treasury, they hud lib
erally responded because they recog-
ni/,ed the great need of placing the
Unances of the province on a sound
basis. Subsequently it had been
found possible to reduce taxation
and as a result of thc investigation
of the commission on taxation Inst
year it, might be found that further
reductions might be advisable. He
promised the bonne that every consideration would I* given to the
recommendations the commission
would make in its report and that
legislation of a Character which could
not fail to meet the wishes of the
people ol British Columbia would
Mr. Brewster resumed (he adjourned debute on thc address in
reply to the speech Irom thc throne.
He criticised the speech us not containing the forecast of legislation
which would be of benefit to the people "i British Columbiu. lie declared
the speech contained no reference to
lhe adoption by the government of a
land policy and he adversely criticis-
"d the government for having last
year by means of an order in council
increased the price ol crown lands.
The member Ior Alberni expressed thc
opinion that the people of the province had last year been forced to
1 ny$14,0UO,(ino [or imported agricul -
tural products because the policy ol
the government, he said, had permit
ted speculators to remove all rcnlly
accessible agricultural lands from the
possibility ol development by actual
s*?ttlers. In the opinion ot Mr. Brewster a recommendation might bc expected from the royal commission on
taxation that the poll tax should lie
abolished. He also said he thought
the commission would urge the removal of thc tax on improvements,
and he declined that if the government had in the past been in earnest
n its desire to pass the Natal net,
ii could now be introduced and plnc-
. .1 on the statutes, and it might bc
sent to Ottawa without fenr of disallowance there because there were
"no bad grits" in power at the federal capital. Thc debate was ad -
journed by T. E. Tisdale ol Vancouver.—Ex.

Alrcudy enquiries ahout conditions
nt Malakwa in the Garden ol Edeu,
arc arriving from all directions, one
letter just to band Irom Vancouver,
is asking many questions about this
section tor fruit and poultry raising,
while another enquiry from far ofl
Dawson City wishoB to know tho true
conditions regarding an opoulng for
a large general store. This enquiry
corueB from a party who has made a
fortune in thc Yukon nnd is looking
for an ideal climate where a steady
quiet business can bo maintained. He
does uot expect to make a fortune
out of his store ut Malakwa, but
will bc content with paying expenses
or a little better lor the first year
or so. Another enquiry comes Irom
far oft Nova Scotia, Irom a man with
a large family of daughters. The
head ot tbis home has means and
wautB to know what chance there Is
(or his securing a block of at least
■100 acres. He has live daughters nnd
wants to Improve and then bequeath
a. block of land to each child when
she marries or at his dcmlBC. Tbis
gentleman in used to hard work and
wants strictly wild lnnd, und has
means to hire all the available lab -
orers to help to clear it. He figures
if thc enquiries he hai made are favorable in selling his extensive hold -
ings down by tho Atlantic nnd moving to the Garden of Eden this coming summer.
