The hou. gentleman   has  referred to thc  great increase in the  trade of  our provunce and  in view of  the retarding ciicct, which these marine disasters must have on the growth  of that  trade, it will  be seen   ���������lhat  'the improvement ot 'the  exis-iing conditions is  a mat-tor for. t-he very serious consideration of'the   government  '1 ha impression of the people   on thc  Pacific coast is that 'everylhiug-   Lhat.  might hake been done by' the  tuitho-  rit-ics  in  Ottawa in  the  way  oi providing aids  to navigation on the Pa-'  ciiic    coast     Iras  not   been  done.    1  quite understand  thai in  time of cx-  tierire popular excitement'there is   a  tendency  ' to blame    the government  for everything.   The government    -do  not create    the  wind,  they do    not-  crcaie the fog,  they have not created   tire natural formations that make  the    const    exceptionally  dangerous,  but (he government do a very great-  deal  wilh regard  lo the secur ty    of  life in    the operation  of - the-marine  business,     Tlie ������o.eminent ought- -to.

The supervision  of  the  n.-.trine authorities over the operationl  of     thc marine    busini ss  is greater  Uun that over any other .li-isincss iu  the country,  and   is  of gicat   importance.  ��������� '.   Now,    many   .reasons have  teen given as*, thc causes of these 'disasters..    After the ���������.-Clallam.' disaster  wr 1 Si) 1 the governrnent had. an, iii "tii-  ry  made into it.    , A  royal  commission  has inquired  into and .has    just  recently reported  on  the  facts     coir-.  nect-e-d  with the .-.serious accident     to  the     'Valencia.'".      Having    followed  these inquiries as cIosdIv  as i%   \v-,\s  liossible for  me,to do,     I  have-,   arrived   at an  opinion  as to .the. cans*'  of'these  accidents,   and  T have  ��������� arrived also at a conclusion as  to' the  few'  things  which  I   thin'*  could,   be  applied   more eEecttially by the  Marine Pepart-ment in. securing the,   service when boats get into  these   serious conditions.  Mr. R. L. Borden���������Where is th-e report to be fotuad? Has it'been laid  on the table oi the  Hot:se?  Mr. Ralph "Smith���������The report as'to  the Valencia has just come to haml  1  understand,  two days ago,  Mr. Urodeur���������It was rcceiwd tw0  days a-fO.  Mr. 'Ralj-.h Smith���������I was iu a position, living in British Columbia, to  follow pretty closely the proceedings  of this inquiry at tho time, and thus  to learn the facts. Not having had  the report fo hand, which just cam'c  lo the department a couple of days  ago-  Ivlr. R. L. Borilcin���������Has it been puh  lishod in the. Press?  Mr.  Ralph  Smith���������Day    after   day  considerable    reports  were    published J  in the  press  of the   Province of  British Columbia-  i\!r.   Brotleur���������Not   with  rcg-avd  the ilisastc-t- itself  gation���������I am not speaking of the iwi-  eicnee���������.been published in  the pi ess'  M-r. Brodour���������I think a. part of Uie  report has ).pen published in the press  ���������an interim teport made, some time  ago by thc persons iir cliarge ol the  investigation with regard lo the aids  to navigation; but the pari of Lhc  report concerning the .disaster itself,  and thc causes- of thc disaster was  not published. That is my recollection.  Mr. Ralph Smith���������Following up the  evidence which  was presented  as   lo  the- accident  to the 'Clallam' in January,   JflO'l,   I   think it  is  iiirpotl-iitl  ihat  the facts with regard- to    that  accident   should h*e  brought    to   the  attention of  this House;  and 1  t<ii'i'c  it is especially  important  that Un/  should bo .brought     to  the attention  of. the Minister of Marine and   Fisheries.     The  Clallam had only been in  commission six months, and it   held  a certificate  of  inspection  not    only  from     the    American government authority, but  from  the  Canadian   authority  also.     The accident to    Uie  Clallam,  according    to   Lhc o.'i.ieace,  and lhc'opinions of expert   seamen on  the Pacific coast,  was due entirely to  (he  Lucl    construct ion     of the boat.  Here, was a   vessel which had been in  commission   only  six  months     going  to wreck    in a"  ordinary  storm    nu  that  coast.  But  thc important  thing  which I   want to bring  to the attention of the minister, is  the fact that  that   boat   which   hcwiT.nly   be*.n     in  commission  six   months,   lu-ld  a   certificate of cfticiency from   the   Canadian  Inspector     of hulls  in    British  Columbia.     A' report,on   thai   tli-vts-  k-r  was made    .by  the uificial     who  was. ap-pointe-d  by "thc Dominion., an-' _~  lihorilics to  inquire into il.      Whilst'  t!iat-"re|*,ort was' made- by an   expert  official- appointed  by thc government  themselves,   the cause oi  1'i.u  disas-  tei   to   the  Clallam     was  not   lakoii  advantage of .hy   the  Marine Department   lo    avert any   of iJu* disasters  that have followed  since.     From the  report     en"  Air.   Ltigrin,   the    oifiei.d  appointed  by   the   government  to   investigate tlie    accident to  the   Clallam   and  a  thoroughly'.capable     an.! '  ijii)������arlial   inan   whose work ., eaniiot  be too" highly 'com-iuenxtcd,  I want tu  read  a  few sen tenors -which  1    thiiik  it is   very  important ic  thc Marine  Bepartmeiit     to    hear and ' to know.  'These were written in-190:1:  ,"f beg to  direct attention -especial- ,.  ly to  this matter of inspection'..   Thc  Clallam w.n.s inspected  by  Capt.  Col-  iister,   'Canadian   'Inspector  of hulls,  after completion and while the vessel  was lying at a wharf in  Seattle, in  the state of  Washington..-'    In   reply  to m.y question he said that he only.'  made such inspection as vvas pcs.vihle  without  opening up  the steamer     in  ���������any. way.   . He knew v-ery little about  the. vessel's fastenings,  did not know  whether her frames extended   to   the  passenger deck,  nor how  the    decks  were  fastened ��������� to th-e clamps,  or  to  the frames,    I  examined' him hi considerable    detail as  to the const ruction .of the ship, but elicited very little    information.       In fact,  he  said  specifically  that, he  took a great deal  for granted, and said, what see*ins reasonable  enough,   that   unless  a ship is  opened     up    it     i.s     impossible     t-o  do    more      than      inspect    her     in  a     superficial     way.   . If    1hc    evidence given by   Mr. Shea in regard to  the Isabel is  to be accepted as   true,  Capt.   Collister's  inspection   of     vessels    when     upon  the  ways, is     nut  llioi'oii-gli.        Mr  Shi-ii  said   that   the  Isabel  having met with an     ace id en l  vvas hauled upon  the  ways   to be repaired, and although her plaids were  so open at  the butts that be    could  pul  his  hand in   between   (hem,     the  to  Mr. Ralph Smith���������Yes, with regard  steamer  was  given.a  certificate     '���������;���������  to all   thc evidence..

As one  who came from the  old country some  years  ago,   I   un  spealf  with   some authority   when     1  say  that   one  of  the  guarantees     of  Ihe British     people coming 10    this  country,   so  far  tls mar.ine     dan-neis  are concerned,   is  thc fact that   *->���������.*.  scls on reachiir.g C-ana.dian waters pi.-,  manned by Canadian pilots,  nun who  understand thc   local conditions.   According    to   'the  present  regulation,  there is a  sjstem of compulsory , pilotage  to   this   extent���������that  e.en    it  ,-essels  do  not call for  pilotagnthey  are compelled  to  pay  one-half of th'-  cost of the services- of a pilot. Every  vessel that   carries passengers into ,1  Canadian port should be conn ������������������lied to  call for a  Canadian pilot arid ,*h,.,iil,!  le     coin'j-ellcil       to    tal'c    < 11    the.  vessel nomc     local     aiithorilt whose  '*-itowledc;c       of       thc     local     conditions    will    p-he   confidence    l0   the  passengers     al-otr.d.       I     rec-ouunend  strongly    to the minister lh<*   adoption at one.* of   the principle  of en 1 ���������  pulsory  pilotage  so far  as   passenger  steamers  nre conceiiic-.l.
