The   Land   Question.
Dialing with the greal bone of contention between the two parties in the
house, the land question, Mr. Calder
quoted the utterances of Mr, Haultaln
and his friends to show ihat their contention during the election campaign
was nol the position ihey originally
took. Mr. Haultaln, In 1897, said this
was a political question, nol a con-
si inn i,mal question, and one which depended upon the amount of pressure
the west, was able to exert at Ottawa,
and   later  he  said  that  provided  the Rockefeller   Going   to   Europe,

Under the draft bill a grant of $50,000
for the one province which it proposed to establish was asked for, and
the two new provinces were thus get-
ly due to his energy and ability in
bringing the possibilities and the
needs of western Canada before the
house of commons that the province
found Itself In such favorable circumstances today.
Practical  Problems.
Having spoken of the general prospects which the province is enjoying
of tlm happiness and content of the
people, of the healthy condition of
business, the rush of Immigration, of
the railway development, and of the
record crop of last year, Mr. Calder
touched upon .son,, of the problems
which must be faced by the government, and said it was practical problems and not oris and academical or
even constitutional questions. The
transportation question, for instance,
was one of immense importance to
the country, and al;hough al present
the government had not been able to
do very much In this regard, It was
a matter which was pressing for con-
sideration and a matter witli which
the government would have to grapple
vigorously. Last fall a very serious
condition was created In the southern
ol the province by the grain
!, loi 'bad,-, but he hoped that in the
near future the Grand Trunk Pacific,
the extension of the C. N. H. and Mr.
Hill's road would provide the competition which was so necessary to se-
i ..    a satisfactory service.
Tl quetion of good main roads
ther matter ol Importance
wblch th, governmenl fully recognized
and then was also the water ques-
h was a very real ami pressing  problem to his own constituency
Of   South   Regina   and   a1   Moose  Jaw.
Th, i ��� was also I h, question of municipal . . :. tlon. ll" considered the
time was ripe for the ext, nslon of the
powers ol the municipalities, especially in the other portions of the province, and while he did noi mean!
thai so elaborate a system as thai ln
vogue .a the eastern provinces should
',��� established, he though, it would be
to the benefit of the community If a
cheap ami slmpl, bj item of municipal government were established. With
ibis object in view a sum of $5,(100
bad been provided in the estimates
to del ray the expense ,,1 a commission to hold an enquiry and ascertain
wha: municipal system would besl
ne el  the need . of the province.
Educational   Affairs.
Another practical problem to which obtained much better terms under the
Mr. calder drew attention was in the Saskatchewan acl than wen. proposed
maiiii. of education.    There mlghl  be by the drafl bill.

system   they   bad   it   was   the   duly   of siinnd    population   of   2511,1,1,0,    which
the governmenl to se,   thai the child-  would have given $200,  al  the be

ments    of foreign people   altogether berta    actB, the two provinces    now

ib.ese items of revenue Mr. Calder
compared with the sums received on
the same account by other provinces,
and also with what would have been
received if Mr. Haultain's draft bill
bad become law.
Under the heading of support of
governmenl and legislation the pro-
vines received grams as follows: grants annually and for all time, the
Ontario, $80,000 annually; Quebec, oposition would have had the province
$70,000 annually; Nova Scotia, $60,000 own the public land, and what would
annually; Xew Brunswick $50,000 an-U^elr policy had been? With the neces-
inially;    Manitoba, $50,000   annually;   sity of raising the money now received
as   an   argument   for   an   increase   of
iheir own subsidies.   The interest on Hamburg-American liner Deutschlam
the schol land fund, as he had said,|
was expected to yield  $65,000 In the  r
present year, and as general item in   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
lieu of land  the province would this
y,ar receive $375,000, with an increase
when  the  population reached  4o0,000
to   $502,000;    when   the     population
reached 8QO.OO0 to $750,000, and when
ihe   population   was   1,200,000  to   $1,-
125,00O.    Instead    of receiving   these
from the Dominion ln lieu of lands,
ihey would have been obliged to sell
the lands, and that In such large quantities that they would have been obliged to seek the buyers, not among
the people who would become settlers,
but among speculators, which he did
ling just double the amount which the not think Would be desirable, although
Dominion government was asked to
giant. As to the debt allowance the
draft bill provided that the payment
should be based on a population of
250,000 in the territory now comprising the two provinces so that in that
respect also the province was receiving double the amount proposed. There
was a provision In the draft bill for a
readjustment, but that was a request
which, judging from the experience of
other provinces would have been almost certainly refused, and there was
an indication that the federal authorities in fixing the debt allowance
would charge against the provision a
considerable portion of the large
amounts of money which had been
spenl In opening up and develplng
the  counl ry.
Thai idea was given voice to by the
present leader of the opposition In al toria]
speech which he made in thai chain-
b.i in May, 1900, when he dealt wilh
the autonomy queBtion, and said: "We
must noi forget there is another side
to tb,- ace,mm. When we make a
claim for allowance on account of
ib,- provincial debts assumed by the
Dominion, we shall be met with
.counter claim in respect to ihe debt
the government if the necessity arose
would not be afraid to go into debt.
In the estimates for the coming year
due regard had been had for economy but there had been no niggardliness and the government had recognized thai, wise expenditure was true
economy. The total estimated revenue
$2,040,329.82 and the expenditures
$1,686,032.69, leaving an unappropriated surplus of $354,207.15.
Local Resources.
Coming to local sources of revenue,
Mr. Calder indicated that, in future
ihe example of Manitoba in taxing
corporal ions and railways might, bo
followed by tho province, and said
lhal lhe total revenue from all
sources were estimated for the currenl
year as follows: Balance brought forward, $5ic,,7oi; payments on terrl-
account, $26,000; Dominion
grains and subsidies, $1,124,125;
Bchool lands fund, $65,000; liquor licenses,     $15,000;    land    lilies     ot'liees,
$75,0,111; reimbursements advanced for
milk,   $50,000;    Interesl    on   bank   balances, $25,000; ball insurance, $40,000;
other   local   sources,   $13,500;   making
;l   a total of $2,040,329.82.

Hiding dinner pails as a joke is not
always a profitable way ol' disposing
O" an idle five miLUteS, as the employees ol" the Western Canada can
factory hav. found to their cosi during the lasi j'ew days. On Friday
some of the boys, wiih an utter disregard of the awful consequences thai
I might follow, hid th,' dinner pails belonging to Dan Sullivan and T. Jones.
When the loss was discovered, a general search was Instituted throughout
the factory, but the missing pails were
not found.    It was then that the nian-
' ager rose in liis wrath, and gave the
hoys five minutes In which to produce
the pails and name the cul],rii who
had hidden them. The hoys, Instep
of being duly Impressed by the gravity of the Situation, seemed to enjoy
ilie joke more than ever, but when the
manager began to fire one after the
oilier of the employees for refusing
to name the lad who had hidden the
palls the rest of the hoys took a hand
in the game, and declared a strike on,
as a mark of sympathy with iheir fel-
' low   workmen   who   had     been     dismissed.
ThL.   missing   pails   were   found   on
I Saturday, and by this time the mas- Victoria.

Iof the strikers to resume work, and in
