Expected Dominion Belt Lands Thrown Open for Settlement Tins
Year.-Mr. Maber s Report Now Under Final Consideration
-Definite Policy Shortly Be Announced.-Many Thousand
Acres Finest B. C. Lands Available to Cultivators.
We arc given lo understand from an
authoritative source, that definite an-
jioune-em nt may he shortly expected,
from the Dominion government to the
effect that the Agricultural Lands
throughout the Revelstoke. district,
which are Included in tho Railway
Belt Agreement, will be thrown open
for settlement.
It will be remembered that immed -
iatdy following the elo tion of Mr.
.R.F. Green to the Ottawa Parliament
a special commissioner in the person
of Mr. Maber, visited this district, on
behalf of the : o ernme.it, and male
an exhaustive inquiry on the spot, into the whole pro. lem of the Dominion Railway H.'It Lands within the
Kootenays,
The investigation included careful in
quiries into the respective rights of
squatters, timher lea ecs, owners and
settlers, inl the results of same after
tabulation by the    statistical   ottice,
were placed in the hands of the Hon
thc Minister of the Interior at ihe
Capital.
'I but care and thou,he were necessary hefore the problem could b,1 solved, is pro en I.y the fact that for
sixteen years the conflicting i laims
concerning whi, h Mr, Maber reported
bad bten. under notice and that when
the late government were swept out
of otlice, the records showed that no
definite s ln-me of liberating the belt
lands bad ever been formulated. The
Railway licit Lands problem, in fact,
was ono of tbe many troubles left for
•the incoming government to set right
and if our information is oorreet, the
government will shortly make announcements which will prove they are
capable of handling the situation in
a statesmanlike manner, and at tin
same time in accordance witb the best
interests of the Kojtenays and tbe
Interior  ot  British Columbia.
'I'h' ener. otic an.l practical iiiann.-r
in which Mr. Maber conducted his in
vestigations, the 'frankness with which
he- discus ed the affair from all sides,
an.l with every section of the community who might be in the slightest
degn ■ interested in n satisfactory solution of this old outstanding difficulty as an eye-opener io everyone with
whom he came- in contact.
In addition to the results of Mr.
Maber's labors, the government have
also had at their disposal, the personal experience and knowledge of the
ico;i'aPhic ah-d economic conditions
thioughout Kootenay, gained by our
member Mr. R. F. Green in the course
of his 25 years intimate connection
with the agricultural mining and busi
ness interests of the Intel ior of British Columbia in gen;ral, and Kootenay in particular, and the appreeiat -
ion our member has shown of the necessity for action, and the manner in
whicli hc ha< kept the issue before the
government, hive contributed very
largely to bringing ahout such a
speedy sett lem' nt.

VICTORIA

Victoria, B.C., March 1—By sitting
until live or six in the morning, it is
expecteil that the house will complete
business on the order paper and bo
ready for prorogation without the extra silting tomorrow counted upon.
Today lias witnessed rapid fire pro-
gres- with all measures, including the
proposals of the new constitution act
under which the life-lime of this and
future parliaments is extended to live
years and the sessional indemnity in-
creased to $1.1.00. In elaborating the
propo ils of th" new Constitutioo a t
tl,- premier said: "There can he one
criticism perhaps on the proposal that

may say that the present adminlstrati* n. because of the act3 of policy it
has associated its If with, has never
taken advantage of the lull period of
lime of parliament up to the tnd of
the four year period. The records

Eronomy of truth is the feature of
attempt;; made by certain Liberal
newspapers to misquote Hon. T. W.
Crothers in legai'd to his address before the Builders' Exchange of Mou-
treal. The trouble arose out of a
garbled report of Mr. Crothers' speech
sent out from Montreal by a news ser
vice. The Minister of Labor on observing this report immediately issued
a correction, pointing out the error
and stating what he reafly had said.
As he had spoken from a written address th re could be no room for
further question.
WHAT HE SAID.
Hera is Mr. Crot-heis' statement:—
"Th? despatch from Montreal concerning an address I made at the
Builders' Exchange 1-an juet there l(lst
Saturday evening turns il pretty Well

very much sympathy for the labor Unions.' I sai.l directly the opposite of
■that and e-annot understand ariy honest man so reporting rae, as I spent
some time in pointing out that such
unions have done muoh for the. work-
in ' man and have murh more to do
for h in.
"The despatch makes me say, 'I Sealed Tenders will be received by

NO EXCUSE FOR THIS.
Sin'" the Minister of labor issued
the above statement. Li. eral newspapers have persisted in attributing
to him words conveying a meaning thc

had said. There is no excuse for this

SINGLE TAX
PROVED A

Scuttle, Feb. 27—"Single Tax is a
uiek ilmt bas deluded working non;
it makes the poor man's taxes higher,
it is line only for the owner of the
I in business block in Yan'ouvor. '
This wns the declaration made by
J. H. MeVety, one oi the leading
union leaders of Vane-ouver to a local
paper toiluy.
He qualified his assertions by declaring thnt Vntiouver had not thc
Henry Ueorge  siuglo tax.
"Il seems to tne,'' he remarked,
"that th.e people who write about,
Vancouver in the publio ami other
papors mul tell of bow we aro enjoying single tax know more about it

MAKES POOH POORER.
"The kin.l i f single tax we havo,
is ihe kind that will make tho rioh
num richer and the poor man poorer.
It taxes the poor man's lot to assist
the owner of thc skyscraper.
"Any time anyone says that Vancouver's prosperity was due to the
single tux, he is making himseli ridiculous."
He spoke with marked disapproval
of the fact that Vancouver main-
tain-d a tire department with many
thousands of dollars of equipment,
available only to fight fires in tall
buildings, which structures did not
contribute one cent toward the $221,-
Ull l upkeep of the Vancouver tire de -
partment.
"For Instance," declared Mr. MeVety, "'ihe World building is assessed
at S-MO.OOO, yet it pays taxes only on
the lot, which is valued at under
$100,000.
"This is ihe situation. Not more
than one-fifth of the values of Van -
couver lie in tbe business district.
"Let us assume, therefore, th;it tho
buildings and land in the' business district are valued at $1,000,000, half of
that io the improvements and the

proportion in favor oi th' improvements is far g i eater.
