McKenzie''as  capluin of the Mission-Matsqui ferry ��������� ended on Saturday, evening lust  and .I'.o r.c..' cr.ptain, Mr. Walker in  now  in  charge.  ��������� On Monday a petition was circulated In tho district asking that Mr.  McKenzie be re-instated as master  of the ferry, and over four hundred  names were attached to the petition  It was decided at. the meeting of the  board that others be given a chance  to sign the petition and it is anticipated that many more have by  now   willingly signed.  By the appearance of the number  of names being placed on the petition the number of serious complaints against the captain are not  so numerous that it should, have  cost   him   his   position.  Since taking over the ferry Mr.  McKenzie has purchased a home in  Mission City and became one of our  citizens hoping that faithful and  competent service would enable him  ,to retain his present position even  under a change of government, but  . the axe has fallen,  and he has now  t  been   replaced  by another.  It  is  reported  by  those  who  took  around-ihe petition'"that no serious  objection were at any time met  when a signature was asked. Had  there been a decided disapproval ot  the actions of the captain tliib  would have undoubtedly been met  with.  in endorsing the petition  board of trade members feel  they are helping to protect one of  its citizens, and in doing so is serving the object for which a board of  trade is organized. In all probability those who sign the petition arc  of the same mind.  ���������  The potitiou may not win out the  support of the government in re-instating' the .captain but it will have  the result of showing the department of public works that their action in this matter has been altogether too hasty, and that the general  public are not in accord with the  action  of the government.  But do you think that will bother  our government?

Trade for Abbotsford and district  was held in the G. VV. V. A. hall on  M-jnday evening. In the absence of  the president...Mr. N. Hill, who is recovering from his severe illness,  Capt. K.J. R.

Buckworth as .manager of the railway.  The minister of finance had explained, stated Mr. Bowser, that the  new loan was for the- purpose oi  laying steel to Fort George. In his  opinion it is lifiely to become a hard}  annual.     A     similar     request     was  C.

The people  had the right to know the amoun-  it was going to cost them for having  the pleasure of a premier build and  operate a railway for them.

The premier's course as a  railway expert was unpopular among  the taxpayers."  The   attorney-general:   "They   did  not vote that way."  Mr. Bowser: "Yes they did. The  fact is' that 3 9 per cent, of the vote  cast was-for the government and Gl  per cent, against them."  Mr. Bowser then went on to deal  with the plea that the extra four  millions now asked for had . bee1;  made necessary by incroased wages  and the increased cost of materials  The premier should surely havc  beon able to make some sort of reas-  able calculation of these items a yeai  ago. And. yet, not only had the Com  millions voted last year been spent,  but also an additional $.750,000,  raised by special warrant immediately after the election, and the  road isn't Into Quesnel yet, The situation had been concealed from the.  electors, but the money was raised  j as scon as the election was over, al-*  [though the legislature was when  ���������then on the point of meeting, v.-hen  1 the money could have been voted in  a regular way.  Moreover, Mr. Bowser figured out  that the actual increase in .wages and  cost of materials had been 54 per  cent., and this assuredly was not  sufficient-to account1 for or justify  the present demand for another four  millions.

We  like  Sam  Hughes because  he  has  come  out in  the  open  and  has  given  the politicians an  opportunity  acknowledge their one  for organization, into municipalities.  The government should hand ovei,  to such boards, duly- elected by the  property owners within the respective districts, all real estate collected  within such districts, and should also  empower them to make' a levy up to  a certain maximum mill rate, when  authorized to do so by a vote of the  taxpayers in the same manner as is  now done in'rural school districts.

The premier  could, had he been then satisfied   that  he  had  won,   easily  have  reported  to  Ottawa  that  the motion had carried without  a dissenting voice, as was    undoubtedly intended by the    opposition, but no he had to have  ' the regular vote taken, thus attempting to place the oposition  on record as again   voting   a-  gainst the new act, trusting no  doubt to put the opposition  in  wrong with the general public-  as obstructing the passage    of  a good bill.  Of course after voting  both  the premier and the attorney-  general spread  Lhe impression  - that the new act could not be  a success unless it was supported by the Ottawa government.  But  the  fact  remains     that  the minister of justice at Ottawa had already informed the  attorney-general's   department  that the provincial  legislature  had the undoubted right under  the  Temperance  Act   nv.6   the  Doher'y Act to control the   importation of all linuor into thr  province when     the    provir*/'  has enacted legislation prohibiting    or    controlling    same.

(.!. 10. railway.  "in pardon to this accusation,- t  say ilmt the leader of the Opposition  at the request or demand of It. T.  Klliotl, K.

'T   say,"   said   the  premier,   "that  ��������� at the instance of Mr.    Elliott,.   Mr.  Bowspi-   .advised     the  late  Premier  that he was  willing to agree net tc  oppose such a settlement or take advantage of it by criticising the same  . as .he  was- satisfied  that the people  wanted to see a fair settlement.  "Yet,  in   the    face of the    advice  which lit- tendered the late Premier  he   attacks   me   for   doing  what   he  at the instance of Foley, Welch and  Stewart's solicitor, suggested should  be done."  The Premier's speech, in supporting the additional loan of four millions to the P. G.. E., was not cs-.  pecially bright, he even admitting  that he was painting a dismal  picture of the present situation and  what the future held forth. . .  One feature of the debate was the  question raised .by Mr. D. Whiteside  of "Why not stop now?" meaning  that all work should stop on the  building of the road. To this Mr.  Oliver replied that steel was oniy  eight miles from Fort George and  only a few miles from Quesnel. He  considered it the best plan to go on  to Fort George, although in asking  the legislature for this vote of  $4,000,000 he could give no assurance that this would be the last  that would be asked for.  The Premier came to the defence  of the new manager, A. B. Buck-  worth, explaining that a series of incidents last fall, the burning of the  bridge at Clieakamus, the delay in  cattle shipments, the burning of  two large lumber mills and the increase In the price of oil of one hundred per cent, during the past two  years, were veryNgood reasons why  the financial report was not better.  Charges of mismanagement ano  the purchase of expensive and unsuitable machinery were answered,  the Premier claiming that purchase  of logging cars from the American  government ancl tlie securing cf  three locomotives from Kingston  wore much lower than tho figures  given out by Mr. Bowser. The locomotives wore now on a sidetrack,  owig to the fact that they wero unsuitable for use on the P. G, 13.  "1 have suffered all I intend to  suffer on this," was one expression  of tho Premier when taunting Canon  MinchlilTo on his association. with  the leader of  the  Opposition.  .Mr. ���������.Jones���������-What are you going  to do about It? ���������      ���������  Mon. Mr. Oliver���������Leave that to  me.'  Mr. Jones���������You have been at it  a long time.  Mr. Oliver���������Well, it is characteristic of the British bulldog that ho  is a good stayer.  The Premier asked whether the  credit of the province would stand-an  additional twenty-five or thirty  millions to complete the line Into the  Peace River country. "It is time to  get away from living in a fool's paradise," he stated, "and have plain  talking in British Columbia. If we  could cash in on the scenery along  the P. G. II*. our troubles would be  over."  The Premier urged all members  to  take a trip through  the country  On several occasions, particularly  through, tiie medium of "Seasonable  Hints" issued by the Experimental  Farms Branch of the Dominion Department of Agriculture, attention  lias been called fo tin* usefulness ol  several grasses which at present arc  little appreciated in canada. Tlk  grasses to which in the fact particular ��������� attention has been called as  valuable adjuncts to hay and pasture  mixtures are Orchard Grass and  Meadow Fescue. The former is considered as one of the best for dairy  farms in Denmark where, as is wel'  known," dairying ��������� has reached a  height, of perfection unequalled by  any other country.' The latter gray  is also considered extremely valuable  In hay and pasture .'mixtures where,  mcr intensive farming is practised.  Our experience is that, in Canada,  these two grasses would, if" added  to tits . standard and often stereotyped mixture of "Clover and Timet by", materially help to increase  the value of the hay crops and of the  pastures.  But, besides these grasses (here  are several others, the introduction  of. which into Canadian farminf  would no doubt prove most bene  ficial provided that, they are used  under conditions in which they can  prove their^Veal valu<*.  ���������We   have   especially"'in   mind  the  use of some grasses which, although  of little importance for hay, yet ar-3  \ery   valuable  as     pasture    grasses,  ihaf is tp say, may be advantageously put  iii  as   bottom  grasses  in  hay  mixtures and .pastured when the'hay  has   been    removed.    Among    these  grasses are the Kentucky Blue grass  suitable especially for loamy soil, th ���������  Sheep's    Fescue    and  the    Red    oi  Creeping  Fescue  on   light  land_,   the  Rod   Top  especially   under   wet'conditions', and    the Crested  Dogs T*,il  under similar conditions.   ,  In our opinion it would pay to add  these grasses in small quantities to  grass mixtures seeded down with the  taller growing grasses primarily  looked upon as hay producers.' Indeed, the experience of countries  where the farms are' small ancl  where consequently the highest possible returns are imperative.to make  farming a living proposition, strongly points to the advisability of in  eluding four or five or even more  grasses in hay and pasture mixtures--  so as to make it the .more remunerative.

Turning his  attention to the freight situation, Mr.  Oliver stated that even when the  P. G. E. reached Fort George they,  could expect little assistance in the"  way of freight from the G. T. P., a*  t would cost loss to ship via Red.  Pass Junction on the C. N. It. than  over the P. G. E. via Squamish.  A sharp passage of arms followed  Mr.  -Oliver's   address,     Mr.-Bowser  rising to    explain    the'    confidential  letter read by' Mr.  Oliver.  Mr .Bow  ser had been speaking but a few minutes, when Mr. Oliver complained tr  the Speaker that the rules were not  boing observed, to which the Spcakcj  retorted that the    Premier    hinisel  had not kept to tho procedure rules  and he thought It only Mir to allow  Mr. Bowser a certain length of film  to reply., (Cries or  Hear!   Hear!)  Mr. Bowser stated that, prior lo  hi.4 sending the letter to Premier  Brewster, he had been interviewed  by Mr. Elliott, who had led him l<  understand that the proposed agreement would include a considerable  amount of money lying to the credit  of h'oley, Welch and Stewart in the  Union Bank at Vancouver. This had  since not proved the case, t-he agreement had been altered more than he'  was  intended  to  believo.  Mr. J. M. Yorston (Cariboo and  Mr. II. G.

Th*;  initial blame of the situation lay on  the,'shoulders of the late - Conservative government, lie averred.  Mr. Whiteside declared' he was  not particularly interested in hearing  lectures on the capabilities of th'1  Peace River Country from a standpoint of development. Ho had heard  all (hat before. He held that to  build the line from Quesnel to  Prince George would simply be incurring very much larger outlays  and would not be developing the re-  scources of the great north country.  Tlie time has arrived, Mr. Whiteside told the. House, for another  railway investigation, with the idea  of securing a' proper and sensible  solution of the railway situation of  the province. In the building of  feeders to existing lines. Mr. Whiteside claimed that assistance was  probable from the Dominion Government, which is vitally interested  in developing its lines in the province.  Hon. T. D. Pattullo, was willin?  to admit that the P. G E. project  had' not been ill-conceived, but would  not agrec:to the abandonment of the  Quesnel-Fort ��������� George stretch. "H  would mean, he said, the opening up  of vast, territories, especially in connection with the pulp ancl paper  industry. He pointed to a certoir  great development where a large con  corn is actively initiating operations. " c  : Mr. Sam Guthrie���������Not another  closed town. I hope.  ^Canon ITinchliffe, Conservative  member for Victoria, "referred to the  remarks of Mr. H. U. Perry (Fort  George) that money had been wasted  with tho Northern Construction  Company. If the members wero assured that such v.-nstc wculrl not. bo  continued, they would IVrd justified  In voting another four millions additional until such time as an-investigation "had been made. Not till  then should Die government throw  up its hands in despair.  Mr. -George Hanes (North Vancouver) held that it was not a question of building from Squamish.  Mit rather from North Vancouver.  Twenty-seven miles required to be  built, before the North Shore city was  connected with the northern line,  and ho hoped to see part of tin's  four" million appropriation spent on  this Avprk. Mr. Hanes referred to the  old time P. G.

Premier very seriously on this ma!  ter," stated Mr. Hanes. "1 would ask  the Premier fo challenge me for an  investigation and I'll accommodate  him   within   twenty-four   hours."  "There are no strings unnn the  niember to prevent him asking for  an   inquiry."   retorted   the  Premier.  application    foi  rowed    would  stock,  but   not  was   so   used.  the prophecy  would be   , another  ���������.mother    lean of a    few    millions t*  complete the road and lo buy rolling  stock.  "There never was a  greater'scandal committed by any business man;'  declared  Mr,   Bowser,   "and  particularly by a man 'who calls himself the  president   of   a   railway,., than ..picking up a real estate agent because be  supported   the   Attorney-General   in'  Ward 2 in    Vancouver, and    placing  hhn.'iii charge of a railway at $G000  a, year." The only experience Mr. A,  B. Buckworth had of railway matter?  was (hat he was receiver (or a time  of the road from Republic to Grand  Forks, a' sort of bailiff of the hot-ar  line that ran trains once a week.  Mr. Bowser then made. 30ine com  parisons,  that,   under the three successive managers of the line, the de  ficits had steadily increased. In 1918  under Mr. George'  Courtney,  it ,\vae  S II.",000.  In   1919,  under  Mr.   Geo.  Mac.donald, it was $202,113. In 1920  under    Mr.     Buckworth, it    rose r  $334,318.  ���������'Might I ��������� ask my honorablt  friend from The Islands if I am to  blame for that?" said Mr. Bowser.'  "Of course  you are,-'  replied  Mr  Jackson.  Mr. Bowser then made some comparisons of the deficits by months.  In the month of-September the-deficit  for  1918   was  $3,427;   for the  same month in     1919 it    was    $14,  747;    while in the   same    month oj  1920'it. had risen to $31,121.    Com-  ; paring the months of December wa,:  j $15,564;   in   1919,   it   was   $21,309;  land in 1920 it went up to    $48,558  Premier Oliver: "Will my honour  able friends tell us the mileage in  operation' at each period?"  Mr. Bowser: 'What of it. The  more mileage the '. more revenue  Otherwise you got as much revenue  from throe miles as from fifteen  you would not build the fifteen..  Further comparisons for the thret-  months, September, Octobar and  November, showed that in 1918 thc-  deficit was $6,617; in 1.919 it was  $4 5,972; in 192 0 it was $.101,000  No -wonder," said Mr. Bowser', "that  we are asked for authority to borrow  more money for the Pacific Great  Eastern."  On the question of - management  he declared that a, competent man  ought to bo employed. He suggested  Mr. Kilpatrick. a railway man of  experience. Or the government  might approach some of the retired  employees of the C.P.R. residents in  the province, who were known fo be  ! quite capable of filling the position.  TC'tin's did not suit them they might  go 'to one of the large railway companies and get one of'their young  men    who was     known to be . com  petent.     Anything   would    be   beltii'i--  than having the road run  by a  ward  politician.

But  otherwise he repeated the statement  now.   He   was   informed   that   these.:  engines-were now standing at Scjuar./;  ish, because, on account of the sharp"  curves    and the light    rails,' the engines could not be used,  Premier Oliver:  "Mr. William Rae'  the   expert   who   bought   them,   was  appointed by    the late-   government  and has no superior as a mechanic in  this  province."  Mr. Bowser replied that he had ���������  nothing against Mr. .Rae as an inspector of tramways, the position  which he held under the late government,,.but that was a differeut  matter from buying engines.  Another statement which Mr. Bow  ser said he' had made during tho,  campaign, and which he repeated  now, was' that" $20,000. was spent  on building a sidetrack to a gravel-  pit from which no gravel -was ever  taken. He was informed- that some ���������  carloads of mud were taken out ot  this place and distributed along the  right-of-way, but not any gravel.  Premier  Oliver:   "My  honourable  friend must be very easy."  Mr.' Bowser. "The premier may  think that is an' answer to charges  that I am making in all seriousness.  I made the charges in the campaign  and I make it here that $20;000 was  spent to put a line into a gravel pit  and no gravel was taken out." ' '���������  Mr.   Bowser   also   made  some   ref-.  erence  to   the   townsite  at  Williams-  Lake.   He  was   informed     that    -the  Premier had gone to*Williams Lake  and had ordered the location  of the  station    changed,so as to'  put it    in  the     middle   of'the 'townsite.   This-  was  done without any  reference  as'  to whether the new location' was the-'  oroper one or not.. The premier had  'Imply  said, "I, the minister  of  f! \  P. G.I0.,  I,' as minister of' railwavs  wish   the     location     of  the     station  changed from  where the'railway ox-  pert put it and placed in the middle  of the townsite,    where I    think-  it.  should    be."   Mr.   Bowser- estimated  I.hot- the     making of     this     change  would,cost about $02,000.  Mr.-Oliver     moved   Iho.     adjourn-,  ment of  the, debate.

VICTORIA, MarHi 11.���������Interesting details in connection with a loan  of $6000 made fo four returned soldiers, Messrs. Sain Gothard, Carroll.  Birch and Smith, were enquired into,  by the Public Accounts committee  yesterday. According to what litl.b  information was handed out: prior  to the departmental papers being  brought down by Major .Martyn '  Commissioner of Industries,' Gotb-  ard and bis party staked certain  claims at Telegraph Crook on the  Stikine river. The gold commis-  ioner's letter stated that, acting un  dor instructions from the department of mines, be had not collected  the ordinary statutory fee of $20  on each lease. The aftermath appears in a loan made by Premier  Oliver of $6000. the leases now stand  ing in the name of the Minister of  ndustries.  In asking for a return of nil papers on the matter, Mr. Bowser  stated that .it was evident that the  Premier had forsaken the horse business and had gone into hydraulic  mining.
