Seek to Amend Borrowing Powers-
Would Appoint Committee te Negotiate Leans.
To clear up a slight defect in the
present act which regulates the maintenance of Columbia college, a private
bill Is to be Introduced In the provincial house ot Its coming session whereby the borrowing powers ot the college
shall bo extended.
'Now the -loard can raise money on
mortgrgo but not on note. In thc bill
tho board of directors shall have power
to borrow such sums from time to time
as may be necessary to the college,
either without or with security. Also
tbe board shall be empowered to appoint a'-H-ftmmlttOe 01 tbree directors
who shall be able to negotiate' loans
up to 1500 and to execute promissory
notes as security for these loans.
This change, the authorities of Columbian college think, wilt give them
powera whloh should have been thelr's
from the flrat
of  those   nations   in
lived the inclusion cf anything that
might prove offensive to his honts.
To thia Dr. Martinet ia said to have
replied that his own address had been
Eiibmitted to the Chilean foreign office three days before Col. Roosevelt's
arrival and that as no objection had
been raised in that quarter he could
Bee no reason why the discussion of
the Monroe doctrine should be avoided as a dangerous issue.
Nothing efficial has    reached    thc
Chilean legation here concerning any
phase of what diplomatists are Inclined to consider a delicate situation.
Had Speeches Approved
"It is true that tthe legation passed upon Col. ltoosevelt's Santiago
speech." aald Chilean Minister Saur-
ez tonight. "After reading It 1 had
the speech translated Into Spanish
and forwarded It to the foreign minister. 1 understood that Col. Roosevelt's speeches in Rio Janerlo and
Duenoa Ayres likewise were submitted to the llraxilian and Argentine
foreign offices as tbose adddresses
and the one delivered In Santiago
were to be bis principal utterances
during his South American tour.. I
ciiiiir ���' understand how an Insue could
be ro'Bed between Col. Roosevelt and
Hr. Mnrttmx since the latter wss
selcrted to speak ln behalf of Chile
on account of his well known sympathy with tbe ideals of the V  8."
It Is said that at the conclusion of
the Roosevelt reception a demonstration agalnet the American visitor was
made by a small clique of Central
American students. The story goes
thst as the Col. left the university
the students shouted "Viva Columb'a"

The Spectator, which ts Unionist,

reform should be dropped at the next

The Observer which 1s edited by J.

that even the "crowning feature" of
dropping the tood taxee has not placated the Unionist tree traders. The
Observer soys: "After the Irish ane*'

of whether tariff reform shall he altogether dropped will arise." but meantime It appeals to the Spectator to

said at the time that several fires

Kilner. who showed a suspiciously

Victoria,  Dec.    21.��� Something    of
what irrigation has already done for
the province of British -Columbia waa
told last night by E. i!. Knight, superintendent of the White Valley Irrigation and I'ower company of Vernon,
who Is in the eity in connection with
a matter of business concerning the
provincial government Mr. Knight
bell: vis from his vast experience In
irrigation matters that the application
of th-' system more generally will reader h ghly productive great areas of
land at present capable of secondary
While he did not attend the executive meeting of tlie weatern Irrigation
' sperta in Vancouver at the beginning
of the week. Mr. Knight is naturally
keenly interested in all that pertains
to the system and he evinced a
hearty Intereat in the reports of the
proceedings of that body, lt was In
relation to the district affected by the
op'rations of th? White Valley company, however, that Mr. Knight v.as
able to state his case for irrigation in
British Columbia. "Our Irrigation
project," he said, "covers about 21.-
600 acres of land in the district cf
Vernon. At the present time there is
only on small portion of that amount
of land under cultivation, and 1 presume that lt will take several years
to bring the total area affected und?r
the hand of the settler, but the great
thing that matters is that wlhout exception the land under cultivation is
mor.- than justifying the system of irrigation.
'Wth the application of water, the
land in the district has been transformed from second class agricultural
land Into first class fruit land, perhaps the most productive- of its kind
in the country. I might go so far as to
say that without irrigation the land in
question would never have been more
than range or pasture land. It. will
be understood, therefore, that irrigation has accomplished wonders isi this
section of the province. What it may
do in other sections of the dry-belt,'
is a matter of speculation.
"We may fairly claim," he said, "to |
bave increased lhe value of this land
four and five fold. It has been proved t
lhat the moment you get water on to
this land it develops wonderfully rich
growing capacity, and I have very rea- -
son to suppose that other sections of
the country are similiarly conditioned.
Veinon.   to  a  large  extent,  owes  its
prosperity  to  the  development of irrigation.    The town has enjoyed    a
steady growth, especially In the last
twn  years,  and  in  spite of lhe quiet
times this year it has advanced appreciably."

Victoria, Dee. 21. Whether it is

board to administer Its powers In eon
iit-iimi with the munlclphlltlea ot British Columbia was .1 polnl argued al
the lasl nn- Und of the board of trade
Such a recommendatlnon was propos

that municipalities could obtain tetter attention irom the government's

Central Control Pc&irable.
J. P, Bhallcroes took the position
thai some central control of tha char

did not think that It n-is necessary
to ban* a "permaneni commission r,"
as the n porl specifl id, bul a move
of lhe kind Indicated ought to be tak.

0 hlm to find some districts taking

Therefore he was In favor of I ie Bug

othi r such eltios if Oreat Uritaln were
under governmental control to a limited extent and he did not understand
why  British  Columbia municipalities

kind proposed Irksome.
M. E. Jackson also spoke in support',
of the recommendation. It ��*:n apparent that party politics had I en
