CROAKING   FOSTER.
With that 'habit of croaking which
has become second mature to him,
George Eultis Foster tried to spread
gloom over the city of Hamilton during recess,   ln his address he said;
"Today was a critical period financially in Canada, and the government.
has dime nothing to meet it. The
government had taken money from
the people, aud had recklessly squandered it In a way never before seen
in Canada. It had been spent in
graft and iu feeding tbe rake-off men,
and Mr. Eielding today was paying 7
per cent, to the Bank of England, as
be dare not go into the open market lsland'8 with Same
to borrow. He had uot made preparations to meet the obligations which
would fall due iu two years, and this
would place Canada in au extremely
serious position, as the result of
wasteful expenditure and mismanagement  of the country's affairs."
The utterance must have been with
malice aforethought because the Conservative press of that day contained
a cablegram stating that "The Dominion government loan ot one and one-
half millions sterling has been covered
by subscription. All applications are
being allotted In full. This means that
the loan was well appreciated by t lie
British public, despite the money
stringency." At the very time he
dared Mr. Eielding to court defeat in
the open market the nuance minister
was resting easily with the task accomplished.
It is not at all creditable to Mr.
Koster and his friends to endeavor
.to make political capital out of the
world wide stringency. Were they to
give die matter a thought, they woull
see that It emphasizes the soununess
���of the conditions in Canada, in comparison with those of the United
States. Economists draw attention
to Canada as the country least affected and are figuring out the reasons,
and some of the leaders iu finance are
sojourning within our borders to more
closely study the causes of our stability, in the hope that they may
carry back to their homes Information
that will enable them bo place their
banking system on a round basis.

Lignite Coal Must Not Be
Used for Fuel Purposes on
Trains in Future.
Ottawa, Jan. 15.���Tbe railway commission has issued a series of orders
requiring the railways of the Domin- i
ion to equip all their passenger cars
with fire extinguishers, forbidding the
use o. lignite coal as fuel for railway
purposes, requiring railways to maintain the Inspection of all wooden
trestles during tue midsummer
months, so as to guard against the occurrence of fires, and maintain along
prairie fire sections sufficient guards
to protect against damage to cNFps.
i hese fire guards are to be plowed
and kept rid of wood and inflammable
matter.
The railway commission also ordered that locomotives be fitted with
screens of mesh, so as to minimize the
risk from sparks.
Inspectors are to be appointed by
the railways to ensure the observance
of these requirements, and examinations are to be made of all locoirio-
tivee at least once in a week.
Penalties are provided for infractions of) any of these orders, and inspectors of the railway commission
staff will see that they are carried into effect.
