Lee    Walruth,     believed to he thc
man  who aided the  escape of     two
bandits who held  up  the Great Northern passenger train at HanilHh last
Friday,  was arrested  Wednesday     at
uoon at Birch Bay  hy  Hheritt Thom-
iiH of Bellingham, as ho whb heading
toward British Columbia. The prison j
er is being taken to Bellingham In a |
Walruth is accused of stealing a
launch from Bellingham just heforo |
the holdup. Saturday morning ho ap |
pcared at the Liimnii Bay Packing
company plant, on Lummi island and
sought Bhelter. Ho remained there
until Tuesday with the caretaker of
the   plant.
Wednesday morning Sheriff Thomas
with two deputies, started out in a
fast launch to SCOUT the lays he -
'tween here and British Columbia. At
Birrh bay they found thc stolen launch. Wall nth had stopped there,
turned the boat over to a farmer and
told him he could have the use of
thc craft for a month as he was going Into British Columbia.   The Slier
iff nnd his men then startod for
Blaine in a wagon and overtood Walruth.  placing  him  under arrest.
The theory is that Walruth aided
the bandits t'> a hiding place on one
of the Islands and then started out
to take care nf himself. He carried
two revolvers and a rifle when arrested.

lor the man who robbed the conductor, a brakeman and express messenger or. a Southern Pacitic train last
night and umped ofl j.st before San
Francisco was reached. He is described as ahout r. feet 11 inches (all 160
pounds in weight, thin features and
slim. He ware a dark overcoat and
the Mam g t of the Southern Pacific has oSered a reward of slCOO for
his arrest.
The bandit swung aboard the train
as it was leaving    Burlingame.     At
the  point of a  pistol  he forced     the
conductor,  Frank   P.  Cox,    to    enter
the baggage car,   rohbed him of $45
and some jewelry and then turned his
attention  to H.  Cairns,  a hrakeman,
and Frank  F,  Foster, a Wells Fargo
agent,   obtaining    from  them    small
sums.     Neither Cox nor Foster were
quick  enough to suit the bandit and
he pummelled  them  with the butt of
his revolver,  splitting Foster's scalp
The  express  messenger then       was
comp-lied   by  the  bandit to open the
company's safe.      Its contents    were
'    ransacked  by thc  robber,  filling   his
pockets with  packages. How much he
obtained has not heen  made known.
As  the  train  entered the outskirts
of  San  Francisco  the bandit jumped
eff and escaped.
The robber climbed on thc train be
hind the conductor, F.P. Cox, whom
he drove ahead of him into the baggage car, where were the hrakeman,
H. Cairns and the helpless messenger
Frnnk F. Foster.
Three shots came from the robbers
"That's what I'll do if any of you
try any monkey business," he said,
and took from thc men their valu -
ahles. From Cox he got a watch, a
diamond pin and *ir>; from Cairns ,
a watch and $G.50 and from Foster
a revolver, a watch and 93.50. Foster was slow in giving up and tbe rob
ber struck him with his revolver,
cutting a gash in his head and felling

Friday night, when there were also
present. Aldermen McSorley, Needham
Bourne, Bell, Smythe and Pradolini
with the city clcrk(Mr. W.A. Gordon)
The following report from thc Chief
of Police was read'—
Bear Sir and Gentlemen:—
As per your instructions, I have
made an examination of all public
buildings iu the city, re Fire Escape,
and 1 beg to report them as follows:
Hospital—This building has un up-to
date escape.
School.--They   are   In  compliancewith
Fire  Escape Act.
King   Edward   hotel—Good  iron     escape,   iron  landings.   Entrance    to
same through door from wide hall,
this  is good     eBcape,    though  not
quite iu compliance with  the  Aet.
Selkirk Hotel—They have made   provision for good Iron  Escape,  with
iroo landings, in this building, but
it is not finished,' material expected
in any day.   There is also fire hose
On  each  landing.
Windsor Hotel—Escape, wooden lad -
der fastened to side of building   at
back,   with  wooden  landing,   ladder
teaches to  Bat  roof of kitchen,  entrance an landing is made through
door  from   narrow     hall,   no      red
light to show escape, and no other
Way  of  escape.
Revelstoke  Hotel—This building    has
thru' escapes of iron ladders,    but
no landings,     entrance on same is
made  through  window  at end     of
halls,   halls  are  wide,  and       there
are length  of  hose  and extinguishers  on  each  floor.   There  is a watchman on duty at night.
Onion Hotel—This building is provid
ed with a ladder mgde of iron rods
fastened  on  the wall of the build -
ing, leading from doors at end   of
halls to top of flat roof of Kitchen
There are no landings.
Central Hotel—Escape wooden ladder
at east end of ball     with   wooden
landings, entrance on same is made
through  window from hall.
Oriental Hotel—No escape at all.
Victoria     Hotel—No escape of     any
Canadian  Bank of Commerce—Nn es
cape,  lire hose  on  each floor.
1 think the above are all thc build
iugs In the city, which come under
the provision of the Firo Escape Act
in  B.O.
Awaiting your further instruction
iu the matter.
H.  M.  PARRY.
The Mayor stated that the old council looii up the matter of fire escapes and the Chief of Police was re-
1 quested to report. It appealed that.
in some cas s there were good es -
capes provided though they Were not
in strict accordance with the Act,
v. men .wis verj explicit and definite
in  regard  to  d 'tails
Aid. I.ell said that the Chief of
Police should be instructed to see
that all buildings should he provided with escapes in accordance with
the law.
'I he Mayor—The point is that the
law regarding fire escapes is veiy,
Very strict. Whilst some local build
Ings are not quite in compliance with
the act they are very good escapes.
Some of the escapes are probably
good ones though ihey do not exactly comply with the Act.       *
Aid. Needham—How are you   going
to draw the line?
Aid. Smythe—1 think we should
draw this line, that is some of these
places have no lire escape they should
be put out of business. If these pluc-
68 which have no fire escapes do not
huny up and do .something we should
get busy. It is not fair to tho e
who have escapes that others have
not escapes. There is a new hotel in
the town and no tire escape is in it
yet. There is a new act before the
legislature at the present time deal-
Ing With two storied buildings, an
amendment to the Fire Escape Act.
It. Is a shame that some of the buildings Bhould have no escape. Some
lintels in lower town never have had
any fire escapes and they have been
told about it time and time again.
We should keep in touch with the
new act.
The Mayor—There is the point of
obviating unnecessary trouble to
those who have good tscapes.
Aid. Smythe—We shculd get after
these hotels that have no fire es -
The balance of this report will appear in our next issue.

Project Progressing.--Official Name Recommended. -Letter from Mr. R. F. Green,
M. P.
Mr.  T.   Kilpatriek     presided  at   a
joint local  bodies which  have  inter-
ested   themselves    in  the   Kevelstoke
park project, held in the city hall on
Tuesday,  when there  were  also  present Messrs.      Kincaid,    Sibbald,  sr.,
and  jr.,  CR.  Macdonald,  McClenegh-
an, McDonell, R. Lawrence,     W.     M.
Lawrence,   Howson,      Armstrong,   W.
H.   Pratt,  Sturdy and others,      with
Mr.  CR.  Macdonald as secretary.
The Chairman announced that the
meeting had been called to reply to
u message received by Mr. Kincaid,
from Mr. Wadman, who was at present in Ottawa, In connection with a
name for thc park and the amount
that had been expended by the city
and citizens in furthering the matter
Mr. CR, Macdonald read the telegram from Mr. Wadman to Mr. Kincaid, as follows:—"Please wire which
runic at once for park Revelstoke.—
Kevelstoke National Park or Mount
Revelstoke Park. Order in Council
being prepared. Also what amount
city expended on Lindmark traill Everything working good. Advise at
A  letter    has     also  been  received
from  Mr.  R.F.  Green,  M.P.,  Ottawa,
in the following terms:—"I am  in receipt of   a   communication   signed   by
His Worship Mayor McKinnon,   President of the     Board of Trade,  Presi
dent  Progress  Club,  President    Conservative   Association    and   yourself,
(Mr. CR. Macdonald) congratulating
me upon securing an     appropriation
for the auto  road and  park  at  Revelstoke,  and I  have  to  thank       you
very  sincerely  for thc  kind thoughts
expressed  therein,  and  I  quite       believe that     thc opening up  of this
park will he of great benefit to your
city.   Would  you  he good enough  to
convey  to the   different     gentlemen
who have signed this letter my warm
appreciation  of  their  thoughtfulness
in forwarding it to me.   P.S.—I am
not at all sure that any portion   of
the appropriation can be used    upon
the auto road outside of the limits
of the park."
The Chairman said the first matter
to be dealt with was in connection
with the name.   Two names were sug
gesteil   and   Revelstoke    occurred    »"
each.   Which  dm in-  metiaug incur ?
Mr.  McDonell suggested  Mount Revelstoke  National  Park,  ll  that ■ would
he  acceptable.   Thut  would  combine
. thc two  names.
Mr. Pratt—Is Mount Revelstoke the
correct   name of this mountain.'
The Chairman said tljat was a
doubtful  point.
Mr. Howson thought ,the Revelstoke
National   Park  a  good  na#«c.
Mr. Kincaid said all other import
ant parks had the prefix National,
and In his view it would he advisable
to retafn thut here too. The .Revelstoke National Park would create a
better impression he felt than the
Mount Revelstoke park. He moved
that the name of the Kevelstoke
National   Park  he  suggested,
Mr.   R.  Lawrence seconded.
The Secretary said that name got
away somewhat from the idea of a
mountain park.
Mr. McDonell proposed that the
name of the park be the Mount Revelstoke National Park.
The Chairman—That might not be
the  proper   name of  the   mountain.
Mr. P.. Lawrence said he did not
think    the name    .■ .  in    the
published maps. 1

« P.
A great shock was received by the
community early Friday morning, as
the sad news spread rapidly tbat
one of our fellow citizens had been
suddenly taken away. Mrs. B. M.
Corley was found dead in her bed about seven o'clock on Friday morning
Feb. 27th and it is presumed that the
end ciinic about an hour earlier. The
night before she had suffered an attack of acute indigestion immediately utter supper but the pain had
passed away and she was apparently
recovered when she retired. Through
thc night the trouble returned and
she succumbed to heart failure about
6 a.m.
The late Mrs. Corley was one of
the most b -.hly respected and beloved women of our city. Although
of a somewhat retiring disposition,
she numbered her friends among all
those who had come to know her and
there is many a one in this town in
whom she has taken a truly motherly
interest for many yeurs. Her whole
life has been a model of patient, per-
severence in the face of difficulties,
which would have overwhelmed a
soul of less noble attributes. Al -
ways cheerful in disposition and char
Ruble towards the world, she will be
greatly missed by a host of friends.
Mrs. Corley was a widow and leaves two children a son, Robert, now
iu Alaska, and ,\ daughter, May, Mrs
CR. Macdonald, of this city, who
will mourn the loss of a kind and
loving  mother.
Mrs. Corley was all her life a member of the Church of England. Funeral arrangements are awaiting the
arrival  ol  her sister from the east.
Business Men's Views
On Friday afternoon a large party
of the business meu of the city ac -
companicd  the   Mayor  on a   trip    of
inspection to the power plant.     The
journey  to and  irom was made       in
four     cutters.     On    arriving  at the
plant, the whole system by which our
city  is  lighted  was examined       with
the utmost cure in an endeavor       to
rind the best possible solution for the
problem of how to ensure dependable
tlectric     lighting    in future.   It was
found,  in  brief,  that the old     plant
of huge bulk is     practically  useless,
that the auxiliary  gas plant installed some seven or eight years     ago,
is incapable of generating more than
about one-third of the power the city
requires.   Its  full  capacity  was demonstrated  a week  or two ago    when
the new plant, was out of order. LaBt
ly there is the new plant operated by
the new flume from the dam,        and
which is capable of producing sufficient electric energy for the present requirements of our city.   That is,   so
long as it is not put out ot order by
thc  mud and dirt which washes thru
the flume from the river.   Tbe problem  which  now     arise. o#  to
guarantee  constant light  and  power
for  the  city,   while   depending  solely
on one unit.   It may be necessary to
install an  additional  unit  which      of
course  will  entail a large outlay.
Governor  McGovern,  of  Wisconsin,
who is «  candidate for re-election Is
making a campaign tour of the state
en foot. He expects to win in a walk.
Liberals who ure complaining of
conditions in Canada should, instead
be thankful that this country as
a country has stood the test of
the world-wide depression so well.
In thc United States so grave has
become tho problem of the unemployed that President Wilson has asked
the recently appoiuted Industrial com
mission to undertake an iuvestiga -
tion and to seek to alleviate thc distress. The Commission, in undertaking this work, has issued thc following statement:
"Stirred hy reports of DaO.OOO men
and women out of work in New York
alone, the Commission has undertaken an immediate investigation looking toward action hy the Federal
government to relieve unemployment
During the next six weeks the activities of four of thc Commission's investigators will he restricted to a
rapid survey of unemployment in industrial centres from Bostou to Kan-
sas City."
The Industrial commission draws a
harrowing picture of conditions, hut
seeks to regard thc problem as one
more permanently confronting the co
untry than one that hud arisen recently.
All over thnt grcut country the unemployed nre in armies; millions out
of wwk and depending on charity. So
serious is the problem that the Federal government must act at once.
In Canada the depression has not
been felt In any degree compurcd
with the United States. In this coun
try the unemployed have been a very
small percentage. Liberals havo been
injuring this country with their pictures of gloom and disaster should he
congratulating Cnnnda on the splendid showing made in a difficult per-
j iod. Candian conditions present a
bright picture when compared with
the United Stntes, where the problem
of the unemployed has become so ser
lous aB to be 8 national peril.
Hon. W. R. Ross's Policy
Victoria, B.C., Feb. '27—In response to a request for his policy with
respect to grazing matters on public
lauds, the Hon. Wm. R. Ross, Mm -
ister of Lands, said today:
"I am   particularly glad   to be  asked that question; for while I do   not
believe  that thc    somewhat    ..atural
misunderstanding of    thc policy   of
this Department with respect to graz
ing ou the public lands is more than
a  superficial  and  a  temporary  thing
1  feel that the quickei   and  more thor
oughly   that   misunderstanding   Is   removed the better for thc above solution  of  this  whole  grazing   problem.
"So long as I remain Minister   of
Lands    of    this department  its attitude  towurdB grazing  will  be this:—
To promote in every     way possible
the  legitimate development  of       the
stock   industry  in   British   Columbia.
I  believe  that the  administration  of
the range in this province should  be
based upon three fundamental principles, which ure these:—First of all to
protect  those  now  using  the  range,
and    those     who will later use the
range, in the enjoyment of thiB privilege.    Second, to build up by govern I
mental co-operation a stable und sue
cessful stock industry in thc province
and third,     and that is also fundn -
mental,  to husband and so far       as
practicable to improve the carrying
capacity of the range itself.
"This does not call, at least It
does not call upon provincial lands,
for a multiplicity of departmental
regulations. It calls for the gradual evolution of a practical plan which
hears in mind the welfare of the
range and the welfare of the stock -
men and the wclfnre of the stock in-
, diiBtry.
"There will of course' be no precipitate action in working out or in applying this plan, nor has precip t.ae
action ever been contemplated. I
look forward during the coming season to taking this matter up .n person with the st. ckmen, and to having it carefully investigated hy members of the Fires! Bran<ch. About a
year from now I shall probably be
ready to announce a definite plan of
action. In the meantime 1 shall attempt to develop that plan ubove
all through the CO-operation of stock
men themselves, who are pioneers In
developing the stock industry in British  Columbia."

Canadian Ports Development
Wito tho letting of the contract
this week for the harbor work at
Victoria, all of the big national port
undertakings from amBt to count

tbo great Canadian ports is only one
phase—hut. an Important one—of the
government's great national trans -
portation policy.
Under the Liberal regime the nat-
Ional iiiiiiioi'H were starved. While
millions woti' spent on the building
of the Nntlonnl TrunHContinent.nl, no
attempt was made to improve the
outlets, to prepare for thc bundling

the sea-ports, Hon, Robert Rogers,

carried on a vigorous policy of harbor development, nnd now, in only

At Quebec there has been started a

Some Pointers
Popular opinion hllds the lumber -
mun responsible for the wastage ot
50 to 73 per cent of the timber which
ho bundles, this waste consisting of
high stump*, broken trees, logs and
uncut timber left In tho woods, nnd
of suwdust, slabs, edgings and trimmings at the mills. The lumberman
maintains that he saves us much ma
terial as he can at a profit, and that
be Bhould not be charged with wilful waste when he refuses to handle
material which cannot be sold for at
least tho cost of production.
Conditions which make possible
closer utilization in logging and ma-
ulaeturing are:
1.    Heady  markets.
..   t heap   transportation.
'.',.   Character of timber.
•1.   Efficient management.
"i.   Proper equipment.
The labor costs in handling waste
material are often prohibitive, The
present low price of stumpage makes
it mure prolituble for the manufac -
turers of many small wooden articles
to buy logs, and entire timber tracts
than to manufacture them fiom tho
waste of  lumbering  operations.
Many by-products plants require
such large investments and an assurance of a long-time supply of material that their erection is possible only in connection with very large lum
boring operations. The conditions
1 surrounding many small operations
are such that close utilization is impossible.
Material is saved only as it is valuable.   Closeness of     timber utiliza -
tion is in direct proportion  to stumpage values.   In some iargc and favorably situated     Eastern   lumbering
operations,  high  timber  values    and
good markets for a  wide variety    of
products permit the  utilization       of
practically  all waste.   In  many  Paci
fie Coast operations  where  standing
timber of low value  is abundant and '
sawing capacity is in excess of mar- j
ket demand,  much  waste  is nt  present unavoidable.
Over-production of lumber and other wood products is a prolific cause
for forest waste. Over-production results from unlimited competition in
the exploitation  of forest resources.
Educating the consumer to the use
Of grades and sizes of material    now
reject id will accomplish much In decreasing forest waste.   Thc consumer
j has  the final  say  in  the disposition
of tbe products of the manufacturer.
This  is  not a   condition  peculiar    to
Inn,  'Ting  alone,   but applies to  the
for   ill  manufactured and agricultural   products.   A   market      for
forest pr iducts equal to that in Ger-
| many would result in as close timber
I Utilization  In  Canada  as exists     in
I Germany.

Promises of marked increases in
Canadian trade are held out by the
report of the Department of Trade
and Commerce just to hand from Ot-
tawa in tbe form of a blue book. Tbe
report snows thut the British Preferential tariff of New Zealand has prov
eel a great benefit to Canadian manufacturers and exports in the extension of Canadian trade with that Colony, it is only reasonable to expect therefore as a result of thc tariff concessions granted to Canada by
certain of the British West India
Colonies that Canada should secure a
large portion ot the vast trade now
carried on between the l'nited States
and the British West India colonics. I
A study of thc comprehensive tables
accompanying the report indicates
that during the month of October,
1913, Canada imported from other
portions of the British Empire goods
Ito  the  value  of $12,327,837.   Of    this
1 amount thc relntive importance of

The Literary Digest (New York)
says:—"Congressional wrath over the
Canadian advertising campaign among American farmers does not seem
to be greatly shared by our press.
The Senate's Lobby committee Is reported to bave discovered that Canada has been spending $110,000 a yeur
for advertising—and has drawn some
Siio,lino Americans over the border in
thc last ten ye.irs. Home $42,000 of
this Canadian money was bandied
by Mr. Alfred Washington, ndvertis -
ing manager of the Western Newspaper Union, according to bis own testimony before the committee. His ad
mission brought down upon him the
demand from Senator Nelson: "You
were hired by a foreign government
to do an act of disloyalty to your
own country.    Are you not ashamed"
Mr.   Washington  replied,  according
to the dispatches,  that he did     not
think it unpatriotic or dislayal     to
circulate    such     matter as that     in
Of course not, agrees the New York
World, which adds that "if the Lobby Committee has swept the lobbies
clear of every nuisance, but this it
might, as well report and get a new
"What in the name of common sense," exclaims the New York Telegraph "h there to be ashamed of?" Canada, It remarks, "is not a bad country . . . some day the United
Stat B will annex Canada, and it is
lot a bad idea to have a few hundred thousand of your own people al
i. ady in the section."
And   tbe  New   York   Evening  Post
wonders    that      Mr.   Washington  did
not live up  to bis name by arguing
that so far from being disloyal,     he
■WKB     iu   fad     li ■  agent   of a  process
f peacaftil penetration which at one
time had patriotic Canadians serious
ly worried." The episode does bring
up a line moral issue. The Evening
Post further reflects: "Where does
business cud and patriotism begin?
In the business more disloyal than
the business of selling war munitions
to a nation that might, use them
against us? Is it more unpatriotic
to induce American labor to cmi-
■late than it is to make American
capital emigrate in the face of labor troubles."
86, too, the Socialist New York
Call remembers that while the departure of Middle Western farmers is cs-
pecially regretted by thc "capitalist
and the capitalist politician," because they "take their capital out of
country," this "is the very thre-
il that Is made by capitalists themselves when their wage-slaves made
demands that they considered extor-
i innate."
Turning  to those    more concerned
er the  northward  movement,     we
id   that   at  the  Lobby committee's
hearings   Senator    Cummins  wanted
Mr.  Wm. J, White, the Canadian gov
• s advertising agent to tell
f the  results accomplished  in Iowa.
ee   fowan Senator's anxictywas
ly  not   lessened  by  this frank
Bent   from   the   Canadian:
"We have done a great deal of ad-
Ing In   Iowa   with good results,
ind I heli ve that een the whole those
'  ' ha to I an ida from Iowa
bave been benefited. They sold their
holdings, and I have heard little or
no complaint from them. We try to
a d would lie emigrants by pointing

C. P. R.
Pay day on the C.P.R. is an eagerly anticipated event; and each month the company pays out over $(i,000-
•00 in cheques, distributed over the
s\ stem.
Hy actual count the cheques reach
a total of 1211,0410, and this number
with the growth of the system aud
tbe consequent need of more men,
ever grows.
"We do everything in our power to
accommodate the employees," says
Mr. H.K. Stickling, thc treasurer of
tbe C.P.R. "There is a great denl of
time and work associated with tbe
monthly pay day; nnd if we had to
have it twice a month, as is the case
In certain of tbe states—well, it
would mean a lot more trouble, and
doubled stall, and considerable more
expense. We bave to do it in Ver -
mont and Maine, which we pass thru
and which have the bi-monthly payments, and I can tell you it is work.
In several of tbe states it is thesame
but wherever it is found it is because
state legislators pander to tbe so-
called labor vote. Our people have
not sought for short term payments;
and in fact, seeing tbat they know for
a certainty that on a certain date,
without fail they will get their money, they are perfectly Battened to
have it once a month. Think of a
job of sending out twice a month
l2ii,0H0 cheques. There was some talk
at Ottawa some years ago of initiating bi-monthly payments; but tbe
matter was not pursued.
"The single monthly paymentworks
well; it is n certain fixed date which
does not vary; there is a fixedness
which u'ives security, and it suits all
the people with whom they deal.
Branch banks will be found all over
the system, close to the place of work
and payment, so tbat there Is no
trouble in getting tne cheques cashed
The wanes list is constantly increasing on   the  O.P.R,
\ decade ago the total number of
employees was something like 05,000.
Today it is over 1211,000 in all grades
f activity. It mlgnt be said that
over 500,000 persons are directly interested in, and look forward to the
monthly pad day, While, if we consid
'i ' e allied interests, thc indirect
i'I tions sustained one way or ano-
tl . thc commercial and industrial
imitations of the     company outside
the regular list of employees, wc get
over 1,1100,01)1) people more orlces directly concerned in the issuance once
a month, of these seemingly innumerable bits of paper which are so cag
erly transmuted into bread and butter, lf, however, wc get beyond all
those who are more or less directly
interested in thc company, and reach
out to the various activities which
depend on the company—each industrial organism witb its own army of
employee's; if we consider every allied
or affected interest, we find that the
entire population is, remotely, it may
be, but, nevertheless, certainly affect
ed in their lives and outlook by tbe
operations of the C.P.R., and, with
measurable closeness, concerned Ior
the pay envelopes.
The granting of a new trial to
Lieut. Becker, tbe New York poli.ee
officer convicted of the murder of
Rosenthal, tbe gambler, makes it
practically certain tbat he will never
occupy a seat in the electric chair.
The powerful Influence behind him
will see to tbat.

Important Recommendations
The report ol the Royal Commission on Agriculture presented to the
Legislature proposes the creation ot
a board to be known as the AgriCUl
tural Credit Commission, consisting
ot a superintendent and tour directors, to deal with all matters appertaining to administrating of government mortgager-loans to farmers. It
is proposed that the superintendent
and two members of the council who
are to be practical farmers, should
be appointed by the Lieutenant-Gov-
ernor-in-councll and to serve for life,
the Deputy Ministers of Finance and
Agriculture to be ex-officio members
of the commission.
It is proposed that the Legislative
Assembly should authorize the Minister of Finance each year to borrow
up to a specified amount by thc is -
sue of stock or debentures bearing in
terest at not more than four per cent
and having a currency of 36 and a
half years. These monies shall be
available for the credit commission
to lend to farmers in respect to per-
i manent improvements made on their
land and for other productive measures. .Such loans shall be repayable
by a mortization  over such  periods
I as  the  commission   muy  decide  and
I applicants for loans will be investigated as to their personal character
(and responsibility und thc  adaptabil
ity of their funds.
It is propscd     that the productive
value,  after the improvements    shall
i be ascertained by appraisers,     under
the direction ol the commission, and
the u. ixlmum     loan vvu c    i ... ■     be
made on  any  land  shall  uot exceed
sixty per cent of the value,  calculated on a     productive basis.   No loan
shall be made for less than     8260 or
more than  $1(1,11110 to  one  applicant
■ i   i| on    i    : roperty, and it is suggested that      applications  for  loans
not exceeding !(i-,00ii shall be     given

drawn upon to assist immigration ;
from England. The appointment of
a board of immigration is rccommen
ded aud tbe establishment of training
schools for children, such as nre now
existent In Ontario. These children
should be taught tbe elementary and
practical side of farm life to boys,
and the duties required of domestic
servants to girls, land after having re
ceived an elementary training it is
suggested that they should be placed on farms until they are able to
provide for themselves.
in dealing with the question of mar
ketlng the commission finds that it is
desirable to  promote co-operation am
ciit.r the producers and    also among
the buyers of agricultural     produce;
mat the maintenance of the present
amount of protection afforded by  the
custom tariff to the produce ot farmers     is     necessary and reasonable;
Ihat much assistance can be given to
me     producer in     his light for the
share of the Northwest market bythe
active co-operation of the railroads
and    express     companies    operating
throughout   the  province.   The com-
mission recommends that the co-oper
atlve movement Bhould be encourag
ed, but that it should be Btarted on
a   small  scale.    The  report   also    BUg-
gests the organization of a market

With regard to agricultural education the report emphasises the fact
that the majority ot those engaged
m farming In British Columbia have
aad littlf training Ior their profession and suggests that a beginning
be made with the rural schools with
the teaching of nature study  and  the
Fundamental principles of agriculture1
Bided by the use of schools or home
I lots.   It suggests also that the agricultural curriculum be extended    to'
the high schools and  urges thnt the i
system    of     agricultural    education
should be extended from the smallest
school to classes at thu new Univers-
ity of British Columbia!

tourage economy in the construction
of this road.
"We find that, without including
the money which was unnecessarily
expended in building the Railway
east ol the St. Lawrence River, For-
ty Million Dollars at least was needlessly expended on the building ol
this road."—Report ol the Commission to investigate thc Building of
the  National  Transcontinental.
"When the daze produced by his defeat passed off," says the "Mail and
Empire,"   "and he  began to  get his
reckoning,  Sir Wilfrid Laurier     was
able to see that, however small    his
chance of     getting back    into  office
might be, it would grow only smaller with the flight of time.   The tac-
] tics for him, then,  would be to     do
I everything to drive or lure thc gov-
| eminent into another general election
i without delay, and thus, if possible,
! head off exposure.
"If the late government had resign
| ed otlice, or could have speedily got
back to office, the seal it so watch -
fully kept ou the National Transcon-
remained on, and the account of the
frightful waste, to use no harsher
term, which has just been exposed in
the report of the Commissioners to
investigate, the cost of constructing
the railway up to the time of the
iesignation of that government would
not have appeared.
"of the monumental scandals that
stand out in the history of govern -
ments' dealings witb contractors,
where is there another of the magnitude ot this? In its early days the
Panama Canal was a sink hole of capital and of reputations, but the losses charged to bad business methods
in connection with thnt failure fell
very far short of forty millions of
| dollars."
In reference to the National Transcontinental, the "News" says:—" It
clear that Mr. Fielding did not know
what he was talking about when he
put forth his original estimate of
the expenditure involved. He was
merely making a guess in the dark ,
a guess which fell astonishingly wide
of the mark. The line is costing about four times whut Mr. Fielding
said it would, and we bave to go
back to the Darien scheme, or to the
South Sea Bubble to find a wilder
prospectus. In the height of the spec
illative craze in Walpole's time the
public was offered stock iu a company formed with a remunerative object, but "nobody to know what it
is." That wus almost the position
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his Finance Minister ilwn Lb y launched the
National Transcontinental, Railway.
"The upshot of all this looseness
and inefficiency is that the road can
never serve the purpose for which it
was projected. It cau never give
such economical competition as will
check freight and passenger rates on
other lines operating to and from
the West. The capitalization of the
road Is so excessive that it cannot
yield a reasonable return on the investment and at the same time nflord
the farmers and manufacturers of the
East and West such an alternative
as will lower rates on privately owned roads. In short by its bungling
of a great national project thc Laurier government imposed such a financial burden on the line and upon the
people as is likely to postpone for a
generation the effective control and
regulation of Canadian railway
In the course of its leading article
! on the N.T.R. scandal, the     Halifax
"Herald"   Uas  the  following;—

A  Victoria exchange says:
No more  amazing report has issued from the press than that     which
tells the Btory of the building of the
National  Transcontinental      Railway
and the squandering of $40,000,000 In
the     process.   This     branch of     the
Grand Trunk  Pacific line    was built
by  tbe      Laurier      government.   Mr.
Fielding informed the House that the
total cost would not exceed $01,415,-
UIK).   Tbe report  of the investigating
committee showed that it had reached the amazing sum   of $'234,661,621.
Today  it stands saddled with  an interest  charge      of $5,40U,0OO,   or  •'514,-
Snii per day and the general impres -
sion  is  thut the     handicap      is  too
great to carry  and  that iu     conse -
quence the G.T.P, will refuse to tukc
the line.   If so, the government   will
have to  operate  it and thc  country
will  be  saadlcd  with  another Inter -
colonial,      which  will  probably  take
many    years     to reach tbe     paying
stage.   These  are      the      bare  facts.
When one comes down to details, the
report is even more amazing.      For
instance, we read that there was   no
proper system of competition  in letting thc contracts.   Instead of    open
tenders with  unrestricted  conditions,
they were all so arranged that   only
a few favored firms could tender, and
they appear to have done so not on
the lines of  competition  but  of  combination,   thus   eleven   firms  secured
over eight hundred miles of railway
and re-let it to  ion   sub-contractors.
The original  firms cleared an immense profit for doing nothing.   The   11
contractors     secured     S8,SO0,000  for
transferring their contracts. The firm
of M.P.  DaviB & Co. figured  largely
in this connection and in thc case of
two contracts received the sum       of
$740,000 for simply banding them over.   A   practice  which  if  not  dishonest is certainly open to the gravest
suspicion was  introduced in the  mat
ter of      "classification."   New  terms
hitherto unknown in engineering prac
tice were coined to enable contract -
ors to be  paid  a     higher   rate than
that agreed  upon, and to crown    all
the committee points out that     the
line through New Brunswick    should
bave never been  built; it was purely
a concession to political clamor;    it
parallels the  Intercolonial;  it has no
business offeriag;  "grass is  growing
along  the  permanent  way,  and    the
ties are rotting,"   This is a fine com
ment upon the railway building     of
the late Administration,   That it is
a true one cannot be doubted, for Mr
GuteliUS,   the  engineer  of  the  Com -
1 mission is one of the ablest railway
engineers in the Dominion and a man
of unquestioned integrity.   He     has
simply  told  the  truth.   What the effect of the report will be no one can
, say.   It   will   be  sufficiently  unpalatable to  Canadians and one can only
hope that  its effect outside  thc limits of    the     Dominion have already
been  discounted  by such an acquaintance with tbe methods pursued that
the report will not come ns a     sur-
, prise.   Incidentally,  it is only a mat
ler of justice to remark what an important      light      this     investigation
throws on the charges made  by  Major Hodgins a  few  yean; ago.      The

The high regard in which thc Province of British Columbia is held in
London, and throughout Great Britain generally, is graphically set forth
in the annual report of the Hon. J.
H. Turner, Agent-General, which was
I resented to the Legislature the other day.
After referring to the fact that dur
ing the past year there has been a
steady advance in the work of the
department, owing to the increased
and more accurate knowledge regarding this province being dissemlnnted
among the people of the country,
knowledge appertaining not only to
the province's natural resources and
her industries, but nl*'j to her edu -
cational facilities, health statistics,
climate and general attractions, the '
Agent-General says:
"Thc great interest taken in the
Province at the present time is not
only by one class of people, but ap-
piles equally to all grades of society ;
and leads many to decide upon making our province their future home."
The Agent-General recounts the var
ious successes attained by Provincial ;
exhibits at tbe different shows held |
throughout the United Kingdom,and
indicates that the effect of these in
arousing additional interest in this
country has been very marked indeed
He makes an interesting note regard
ing the visit to London which was
made by Mr. W.E. Scott, Deputy Min
ister of Agriculture, and compliments
that official upon the excellent work
be Was able to accomplish during bis
brief stay.
Referring to the lecture courses
tbat have been inaugurated, thc Agent-General deals with the agreement
which was made by the government
w ith a view to having a series of cin
tmatograph pictures in natural colors taken of the various industries
and activities of the province.
"The operator," says the Hon. Mr.
Turner, "was one of thc beBt in the
employ of the Kiueto Company, a representative of which company ac -
rompanied Their Majesties the King
and ejueen on their visit to India.
The pictures are pronounced by experts to be some of the best ever
shown in this country. I have made
arrangements for them to be "exhibited during the coming spring nad sum
ir.er. by a cinematograph company
working in conjunction with the Australian government, and they will be
shown in towns throughout Great
Britain and Ireland. It is very certain that these vivid, real life pictures will lead to a still greater appreciation by the people of the Mo -
thcr Country of the wondi rful natur
al resources and business activity of
cur great I'acific province."
The Agent-General also deals with
the proposed Provincial building in
London, and explains the negotiat -
ions so far as they have ulreadygone
and briefly outlines the general idea
in regard to design and interior arrangement of the structure.
"Some delay occurred in obtaining
possession of the ground, and in the
design of the building being approved by the government, but the work
is now well nuclei' way. Tbe original
building on the site, the Hotel Continental, has nearly all been removed, and actual construction on the
new British Columbia block will com
mence shortly and it is expected to
be v f- • advanced as to be readv foi
the laying ol i n cornerstone by the
I'rst week in Mi./. His Royal High-
nrss Prince Arthur of Oonnaught has
Consented to perform this ceremony"
"It is proposed to lit up the Inter
ior in a good, but not extrav. I
manner, sons t'i make it a convenient and comfortable place for visit
crs and Inquirers; for people not only of the Mother Country, but ulso
for British Columbians, who should
always register at this, their own office," says Mr. Turner. "On the
ground floor it is intended to havi'
an exhibition hall, in which practically all thc productions of British
Columbia can be faithfully and artis
tically displayed, it is hoped that
complete and well selected specimens
of its timber, minerals, fish and ag-
ricultural products may he represented there."
