William Manson's Speech In Legislature;
Tears Opposition Criticism To Shreds
Member Ably Defends Land Policy of Government and Prophesies Great
Prosperity Ahead for Skeena District.
New Syndicate Will
Operate Two Drills
On  Graham  Island This  Summer to
Prove Up Coal Measures.
Local And Personal.
Mr. Wm. Manson, Member for Skeena,
continued the debate in reply to the address from the Throne on January 30.
He said:
"Mr. Speaker: In dealing with this
debate I shall endeavor to be brief.
Previous speakers have already covered
practically everything and it is not
necessary for me to go into details, but
I shall take the opportunity of making a
few references to the Government's
poiicy with particular relation to the
constituency which I represent.
"My neighbor, the member for Newcastle, is very jealous that anything of
a commendatory nature should be said
in regard to this administration. He
seems to believe in the old policy of saying nothing good of a man until he is
dead. We do not propose to wait so
long as that, because we realize that it
will be a long time before this Government is dead, and therefore we are
ready with our expressions of confidence
and approval, whenever we deem they
are warranted.
"It is not my intention to laud the
Government: it is not necessary that
anyone should do so. The people as a
whole, we know from time to time, when
the Government has appealed to them,
have endorsed it by overwhelming majorities. Only a short time ago, when
the government's policy wns put to the
test in the Islands constituency, and
challenged by the full strength of the
Liberal forces in the province, we know
what the result was, and that in there-
turn of Mr. W. W. Foster to this House,
the policy of the Government was
vindicated.
"At the present time the leaders of
the Liberal party/are touring the country
and endeavoring to create alarm regarding the situation of affairs in the province. From the reports in Liberal
newspapers, it would appear that in
certain places where they have held
meetings, attendances as large as 700
have been recorded, but I would point
out that those who know the places in
which those meetings were held can
safely estimate those attendances at
200, and be well within the limit at that.
But the point I wish to make, Mr.
Speaker, is that a campaign of misrepresentation is being conducted
throughout this province at the present
time by the Liberal party. If the
Liberal leaders had been prepared to
pursue a reasonable policy, had been
prepared to offer sensible criticism, and
built up a counter-pregramme to that
of this administration, there would have
been some sense in their present agitation; but, as long as I can recollect,
their criticism has been devoid of common sense and fairness, and it is to that
as much as anything else, that I would
attribute their present wanderings in
the wilderness.
"One of the principal items upon
which the Liberal party has from time
to time endeavored to build a case is the
land policy of the Government. That
question, naturally, is of very great
interest to the people. It is far-reaching, and requires the most careful consideration; and I am sure that if those
critics knew of the situation in the districts I come from, they would realize
that the policy of the Government in regards to lands was the best that could
have been adopted. I feel that one must
deal with this question from the purely
business standpoint and that is the keynote of the Government's lands administration. If the Government of this
province had been in a similar condition
as many Liberal governments throughout the Dominion, which have dealt with
the question of lands, I have no doubt
that we would have as many scandals
as they have.
" In British Columbia the lands administration has been dealt with honestly and fairly, irrespective of party politics, and Conservatives, Liberals and
Socialists alike are enabled to secure
lands under the laws wkhout discrimination of any kind. I wish to congratulate the Hon. Mr. Ross, minister
of lands, upon the splendid success he is
making of his lands department. The
advance he has made with respect to
the forest service is a most commendable one, and I have no doubt that it
will continue to be one of the best assets of the country.
".To come back to the sale of lands,
I would like to say that the question
which appeals to me as the representative of a district requiring enormous
expenditures in the way of roads, trails
and bridges, is that, without the lands
policy, it would have been impossible
for us to have made tha great advances
we have. By virtue of the sale of
crown lands, we have secured large sums
of money which have been devoted to
the prosecution of the Government's
policy of public works. Without the
one, it would have been impossible for
us to have the other; and I venture to
say that no sane man will suggest that
we should have held up our magnificent
policy of public works on account of some
empty criticisms of our lands policy.
"But in addition to that, the sale of
lands gives the Government a splendid
taxable asset. Without the land being
sold it would be impossible to raise any
Mr. F. C. Wright, who returned on
the last steamer after a business trip
to Vancouver and Seattle, states that a
new Syndicate has been formed in Vancouver to prove up the coal measures
on Graham Island, and that two drills
will be operated by the Syndicate during the year. Mr. Wright has been appointed field superintendent, Mr. F. C.
Greene is the consulting engineer, and
Bodwell, Lawson & Lane, of Vancouver,
are the solicitors for the concern.
During the past three years the work
was carried on by the Graham Island
Coal & Timber Syndicate, but for the
present they have suspended operations
and leased their drill to the newly
formed syndicate.
Mr. Wright brought in a crew of men
with him and lost no time in getting
them down to work. Harry Scott, who
has acted as foreman in the field for
the past three years, will occupy the
same position, and Mr. Charlton is the
engineer. A number of local men have
also been employed.
The drill will be moved a few miles
eastward from its present location and
as soon as this has been done by the
crew of men now at work, drilling
operations will be commenced and
carried on continuously.
The supplies for the camp are being
taken in by the Yakoun River, but later
on this will be done from the East coast,
being more convenient.
revenue from taxation from it, but immediately it is sold it becomes a taxable asset.
" Some criticism has also been offered
the Government on the ground that it
has spent its surplus and that blue ruin
is staring us in the face. That kind of
talk is one more evidence of the lack of
business capacity on the part of the
liberals and their friends. In the first
place, as responsible men, they should
realize that it ill becomes them to speak
in derogatory terms of the credit of the
province, and in the second place, if
they stopped to think, they would realize
that it is no part of a government's
business to maintain a surplus. We
have never advocated the holding of
large surpluses, and no other government has ever made a policy of doing so.
But I would point out, Mr. Speaker,
that the budgets for 1912 and 1913
showed very clearly that it was the in- (
tention of the Government to spend its

Mr. Editor,--Regarding the article in
your paper of the 4th inst., headed:
"House Cleaning at Tow Hill," and
written by Mr. Clouston, I beg to say
that his statements are all false. I
never had a private Voters' List. Nor
has he or any other man on this Island
heard me say anything regarding roads
and trails since I was in Prince Rupert.
If Mr. Clouston would confine himself
to facts he certainly would not have so
much to say. Chas. Spence.

Mr. Manson's Speech
(Continued from page 1)
surplus on public works. The budget
for these years showed specifically that
the expenditure would exceed the
revenue and exhaust the surplus.
"Another point which the Liberals
make an attempt to criticise is the outstanding money on rands sold. To my
mind, that is one of the very best conditions that could exist, particularly at
the present time. In the outstanding
monies on lands sold we have a splendid
asset which the Government will be able
to realize upon when necessary. It is
unnecessary for me to go into the
question of lands reserved for settlers.
The opposition fallacies is remembered
of the large pre-emption reserves made
and taken into consideration with the
other prevailing conditions, the contention of the opposition party falls to the
ground. But in regard to the monies
due on land sales, I would not urge the
Government to press unduly for payment, but would rather ask that a
reasonable system of accepting installments be instituted to facilitate the
payment of the same, which will give a
splendid revenue to carry out public
works expenditures.
" Speaking of the requirements of the
outlying portions of British Columbia,
I would like to give you some idea of
the vast territory that is comprised in
the Skeena District. There is a great
deal of agricultural land awaiting development, and we have reason to believe that under cultivation it will prove
as productive as any other section of
the province, but as I indicated before,
the question of facilities is a great drawback to settlement at th'3 presen time.
We have large areas of land Jn the
Queen Charlotte Islands, Bella Coola,
the Naas, the Skeena Valley, the Bulk-
ley Valley, Ootsa and Francois Lakes.
In these sections settlers have gone in
under the pre-emption laws and are
scattered at great distances from the
centres where roads and trails have been
built, and heavy demands must be made
to afford them much needed road and
trail improvements, which in a new
country requires very large appropriations.
"Settlers have been coming in in large
numbers to this territory during the
past few years. Prince Rupert alone
recorded 442 pre-emptions, Hazelton 167
and Fort George 581. During 1912 the
total pre-emptions were 3,855, approximately half a million acres per year,
which shows conclusively that there is
a very great deal of settlement going
on in the province from day to day.
"In regard to agriculture in the
Skeena district, I may say that we are
still in an experimental sta'e, and I am
pleased to know that the Government
is taking interest in the question, and
that as a result of the findings of the
Royal Commission, we may look for a
measure of assistance that will place
the industry far in advance of its
present condition."
Mr. Manson also referred to "Better
Terms," mining and the fisheries, as
affecting the Skeena district, and in
conclusion said:
" When all things are taken into consideration, Mr. Speaker, I think it would
be idle for me to suggest for a moment
that conditions were other than favorable, and as I am not one of those who
take pleasure in offering criticism when
praise is the just measure, I am pleased
to be able to rise in my seat and express
my gratification at the prospects which
loom ahead of the constituency which I
have the honor to represent.''
