Interesting1' Budget   From the  Pen of Our Member.       "   ,,'  Legislative Assembly,  " Victoria, B.C., Mar.,i. '06.  Editor. Atlin  Claim, Atlin, B. C.:.  .   Dear Sir,���I  wrote   j'ou   some  time ago reporting progress, and intimating at the time that I was   endeavoring   to .have an amendment  passed to the Placer Act  enlareiii" *  the size of the claim.    I introduced  a   bill   about that date but encountered   much   opposition    and ' also  found that I could  not, as a private  member,   introduce  this  bill as   it  affected  Crown  lands.    T asked for  the   discharge   of the  bill  at that  time, but did not give up my efforts.  I succeeded iu getting the   Government to  allow me to introduce the  bill   again   with   the  assent of the "  Crown, and I did so.<   It  came up  for   second   reading yesterday,'and *  today T got it through the last three  stages and it is now law.    I enclose ���  you a copy.  The bill, as originally introduced  by me, provided for a claim 1,000  feet wide. This was fought very  strenuously, and I had to compromise. What my opponents wanted  was to limit me in narrow creek;-./  such as Spruce, from base to base, ���  and I compromised with the opposition by leaving the claim as it was  in nanow streams, that is, 250 feet,  so that the Act as passed means  that no claim will be less than 250  feet wide, and if the stream is any  wider, then it goes from base to base  up to 1,000 feet. The intention of  Ihe Act is that the middle of the  claim shall be in the middle of the  ravine or valley.  The other section of the bill refers  to the cost of mining suits being always on the County Court scale.'  The papers have been quite full  of the proceedings of the Legislature, bul I can assure you that the  session has been a very quiet one.  Some of our good friends in the  Press gallery have very vivid imaginations and the reports that they  have sent broadcast over the country are, to say the least, very highly  colored.  The Government has passed some  very important legislation this year,  but none which directly affects our  district.  I intend on my return to have a  meeting, if my constituents so desire, and ->o over the different Acts.  The estimates were brought down  yesterday, and the probabilities arc  that the house will rise about a week  from Saturday.  The most important measure  which has passed the house this:  year, and one which concerns the  province as a whole, is the University Bill. This means that iu the  future, residents of the province can  obtain for their children two years  ofa university'course without sending them away. It was strenuously  opposed  by some  sections, but  the  'Cuut'-mud on vuxv'-.'  ��� I  ii  JK'  II1 ri  Vt/i  AJ  MX-  .W-~w��'��*:I^J.��:^C'W'tww��.-.^wiTwi..��^^^^^  ���BBHBm  Swrj^Ttoa'..vS* t^br*-  :^?s-.'*'.-tf^-*a,".!ji��^  ATLIN,    B.-  C.,    SATURDAY,    MARCH  ry. 1906  |c  w  J'U  |7  I  i,"  The Atlin Claim,  iDllfi ATV.I.N Cl.AIAl if, puni.tnnrn rvrnv mtubdav  MORNING..

The man who will not  adveitise is driving the heaise.. The  man who- is always pulling- back  from any public enterprise throws  bouquets- on the grave. The man  who is so sli'ngy and selfish as to be  'Howling Hard' -times, preaches the  K'ncral sarmon and'sings-tlie dox-  ology, and thus the town lies-buried  free from all'sorrow and care:.

Said the Prince of Liberty "As ye  would that others should do on to  3*011, do yc so on to lliein."  fn order lo show forth my views,  I will have lo wiite ol' the three  greatest-men I have ever seen and  heard sneak. Possibly, tlie greatest  was General Thomas 17 Meigher.  I heard him speak when he came to  Virginia City, Montana, in 1865.  He had fought two wars for. liberty,  and had gained the reputation of  "the bravest of the brave" when  lighting for the freedom of the  negroes.  Thc next great man was Colonel  Robert Ingersoll. I heard' him  plead for Tin* right against all Ihe  legal talent of Montana and his  actions and words were Christ-like  compared with theirs. . . It i"  such persecution as the tying of  Margaret Wilson lo a stake in Wig-  ten Bay and the chaining of Ser-  ventus to a rock at Geneva, which  leads men of benevolent mind to  think���"if thai is Christianity I  don't want anj- of it."  The third greatest man I have  heard speak was Hugh Stowell  Brown, Baptist preacher, of Liverpool. Iu his sermon he said: "Of  all the evils which have ever afflicted mankind���and I except not war,  pestilence or famine���that of priestcraft is the worst, for they killed the  Prince of Peace and have followed  up their devilish deed ever since  'whenever they have ha'd the opportunity."  To thc people ol Canada I give  the warning: Protestantism is about  four centuries old and, of all I have  ever read, the uuparalelled event  lias taken place in Canada���to enable the priestcraft to start entering  the wedge of persecution���namely,  a council -was recently held in To:  rbnto'of representatives of all the  Protestant Churches and the Catholic Church, for the purpose of having  n law passed to compel everyone to  observe Sunday by resting on the  j st day of the week. The Catholic  Church has for a long time written  that Protestantism is dead. She  protests no longer. But, of all those  that contradict themselves, possibly  the United Presbyterian Church  leads the van. My parents were  members of it. Jts doctrine, as  taugh.t 25 lo -io years before the  American constitution was written,  was: "Government shall not establish any form of religion nor pro-  'hibit the free exercise of the same."  But the last two Presbyterian leaders, here will not allow of any exemption to Jews or ethers who do  not observe the-ist day of the week  as '.'Sunday. And the further inconsistency of those United Presbyterians" They taught that "the  four commandments on the first  tablet is our duty to God and the  six on the second tablet is our duty  ��� Ionian. So, surely it is a logical  deduction that if we break the com-  iuandiuent-s':i and   injure-.man .He,  Caesar, has a right' lo punish us,  and if we break the first four, -regulations���our duty to God���it is for  Him to punish us, not man. lint  to-show the earnestness and determination of this great council of  priestcraft. Dr. John , Biown. of  Haddington, a leading scholar in  the United Picsbytcrian Church,  some years ago wrote a bible commentary in which he staled that  "ihc beast of revelation is the  Church of Rome," that which his  followers now shake hands with.  Hut they arc all alike. I once met  a Bishop Hughes, K. C, who asserted that the .Catholic Church  nevei persecutes1���and T never heard  a Protestant admit !o it either. ���  So, my fellow-men, my warning  is that "eternal vigilance is the  price of liberly.". If we are not  careful, all the good wliich-we have  derived from ihe Reformation and  from the American revolution will  be undone if such laws arc passed  as those which the Protestants and  Catholics in league are now trying  to have enacted, ,and which would  bring again the dark ages when the  Church had absolute power.
