Land Policy.
The land policy of the Government
is one which always conies in for
its share of criticism. There is no
more importan pari of the Government service than the administration
of the land, In British Columbia we
have many adverse conditions In the

to overcome no matter how far UK-

As a policy of business necessity certain quantities of land had to be sold
to assist in obtaining money from
the sale of land, and from taxation
afterwards to provide roads, traila
and bridges and other public requirements for settlers who are preempting lands. It may be true that
some lands have been sobl that
should have been reserved for preemption, owing to lack of information in earlier days, but reserves were
placed by the Government just as
soon as information could be secured
by surveys, which has protected the
situation. Lands pre-empted and purchased in the last two years are as

In Skeenn District.
In the district nf Skeena T made an
Investigation of one part of that district, in the section lying between
Francois and Cotsa Lakes, which contains a total acreage, exclusive nf
waterways   of 636,800 acres.    It was

; ed by the Liberals ever since they
were organized? If they do not, is
there any need, Ihen, to go frantic
over the position of British Columbia ?
It is to be regretted that the members of the Opposition, in this House
and outside, continue to decry the financial position of the Province as
they do. Is that course calculated
to bring any benefit to (he people of
this country? Is not all that, talk
of Blue Ruin for one purpose, that
if it were possible these gentlemen
might he able to discredit, the Government and get across and take possession of the Treasury benches. It
is bill natural that Ihe success they
ha've had In the recent by-elections
would pive tbont some encouragement, and after their long journey
in the wilderness 1 would begrudge-
them the comfort they may lake out
of It. I would caution them, however, not to be over-sanguine, as
