Minister of Finance Objects
to Infringing Upou Provincial Jurisdiction
The Conservatsves, Aided by
Bourassa, Oppose Provincial Subsidies
Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Ottawa, May 3.—The closing week
uf parliament was characterized by
two most striking instances of inconsistency on the part of the opposition.
The first incident arose with respect
to a bill introduced into the house,
and known as the Hamilton Radial
Electric company. This company has
already secured legislation from the
provincial government, but, having
been declared to be a work for the
general advantage of Canada, it passes,
under the terms of Section 92 of the
British North America Act, under
the coutrol of the federal parliament.
This is the law and the constitution,
and to argue that any interference by
the Dominion house is an infringe-
'•inent of provincial rights is to disregard the law and violate the constitution.
These cansiderations, however, did
not weigh with the opposition—au opportunity presented itself to raise the
political cry of "invasion of provincial
right by the Dominiou house," and
the bill, a very important and necessary measure, was withdrawn by the
ConservatiAes attempt td create political capital upon all occasions by
alleged attempts to prove that the
Liberal government encroaches upon
provincial rights. When it so happens
that the government makes proposals
in the interest of the provinces, then
~ the Conservatives advocate the contrary side of tho question. This condition occurred in the debate on the
provincial subsidies. It suited the
opposition tactics to oppose provincial
rights on that occasion, although the
provincial premiers h-ul agreed together upon the subsidies which each
should receive.
In this attempt to injure provincial
rights they were assisted by Mr. Bourassa, who iu the course of his remarks
showed a lamentable ignorance of the
terms of the British North America
Act. Fortunately for the house, but
unfortunately for Mr. Bourassa, the
minister of justice, Hon. Mr. Aylesworth, was present, and put him
right. In consequence of Mr. Bourassa
not being familiar with the question,
his remarks lucked interest and
After a number of Conservatives
had addressed themselves to the plea
of provincial rights being invaded,
Hon. W. Aylesworth ndvunced his
reasons for dealing with the bill, and
in clear and unmistakable manner
ilcmoustrated to the house that any
work which hud been at any time declared to be for tho general advantage
of Canadado was thenceforward subject not to the legislative authority of
the provinces but to the exclusive
legislative authority of the Dominion
The Hamilton Rudiul road had
crossed the trucks of the Grand Trunk
railway, and in accordance with the
law in force at that time, became at
once a work for the general advantage
of Canada, and from that time forth
subject.to Dominion control and legislation.
This condition of affairs continued
until the present parliament, in 1903,
passed the Railway Act, in which occurred the following clause:
"That every railway, steam or electric street railway, or tramway, now
crossing a railway which is subject to
the legislative authority of the parliament of Canada, is hereby declared to
be a work for the  general advantage
of Canada, in respect only to such
connection or crossing, or to through
traffic thereon."
Now the question arose as to whether a   railway that had been subject'
only to the jurisdiction of the Dominion parliament for ten years  could be ,
referred to the  provincial  legislature
for legislative purposes.
Here   again   the   British     North'
America Act provides far just such an i
emergency as the one  under   discussion.   Section 92 reads:
"That such works as have at any
time beeu declared to be for the general advantage of Canada shall thenceforward be subject to the Dominion
control only."
The position of this bill is that having once been declared a work for the
general advantage of Canada, it must
remain so.
This whole case is simple when the
plain facts are related, but the opposition in the house raised the cry of provincial rights, and the party press
circulated biased and unreliable .reports of what occurred, and the result
is that the minds of the people have
been prejudiced without cause, and no
credit is given the Liberal government
for their action in the matter.
In consequence of a doubt as to
whether the Dominion government
could divest or denude itself of rights
once acquired to legislate on a case of
tbis character,and to remove all doubts
as to whether there was an infraction
of provincial rights, the government
did not press the bill, and it was
In the railway committee Mr.
Fielding called attention to the difficulty, and remarked that by passing
the bill the house might encroach
upon provincial rights; and Mr. Aylesworth concludes his speech by expressing the same doubts. Here was a case
in which the government distinctly
avoided Miy infringement of provin
ciiil rights in a very doubtful case,
and the Conservative party was willing to sacrifice the public interest for
party expediency.
Hon. Mr. Fielding announced to
the house that Sir Wilfrid Laurier had
intended before he left to introduce a
bill providing for a substantial sum
towards celebrating the 300th anniversary of the founding of Ruebec by
Cliaiiqilain, making the occasion one
of a national character, but his absence interfered with the program, but
the bill would be brought down next
Hon. Win. Paterson,minister of customs, and war horse of the Libeai
party,whose stentorian tones have sent
dismay into the Tory ranks on many
occasions, addressed the house on the
subject of revenue, in response to some
idle observations by Mr. Foster. The
minister of customs displayed ull his
old-time vigor, and cheers went
through the building as he described
the benefit of the Liberal turilf,
which produced revenue, us against
the prohibitive turilf of the Conservatives when in olliee—which produced
little revenue but ruined the commerce
of thu country.
Under the Conservatives trade in
creased in ton years by 437,000,000,
under the Liberals trade lias Increased
by S311,000,1)00. .Speaking of imports, the honorublt! gentleman said
the imports during 1887 wero SI 12,
000,000; in 1896 they were 811*),-
000,000. The Conservatives had decreased them $2,000,000. Under
the Liberals the imports have reached
the colossal figure of $-294,000,000,
"We have not adopted the prohibitive tariff of the Couseratives," >aid
Hon. Mr. Puterson; but wo have
adopted a revenue tariff, and as uu incident thereto there is ample protection to all industries.
After this vigorous, cyclonic speech
from the minister of customs, Mr. Foster glared through his spectacles, but
he was like the man who had not on
a wedding garment—speechless.
The government is giving overy
reasonable assistance to Montreal and
Quebec for the purpose of improving
the harbor facilities. The idea is to
put into i-tiect as soon as may lie a j
compiehensive scheme having for  its

New  Arrangement  Effective
for Two Years Increases
Miners' Wages
Work in East Kootenay Coal
Mines to Be Resumed
It is undoubtedly due to the untiring efforts of Mackenzie King,
deputy minister of labor, that the
agreement given below has beeu
finally signed and settled upon. He
has worked unceasingly early and
late to bring these parties together,
and the strain, which has been intense, bas told upon him to a visible
extent. When the welcome news
was given to the preaB by Mr. King,
handshaking and rejoicing is reported to have become general in Fernie,
and faces that have for the past while
bad a worried expression broke into
smiles. Tbe men will go back to
work on an increased scale of wages
for at least two years. The executive
board of the U. M. W. of A. have
wired to all outlying camps, and notices were also posted in Fernie
reading as follows:
"To the Officers and Members of
tbe U. M. W. of A., District No.
18:—Tire-result of the voting upon
the new agreement is as follows:
For, 1124; against, 747; majority for
agreement, 377. The agreement hns
been duly signed again.and all members are requested to end their vacation and resume work at all mines
"(Signed) F. H. Sherman,
"District Pres. U. M. W. of A."
The feeling of the men is strongly
in favor of this return tn work,
though they feel strongly against
Sherman, for they realize now tha'
work should never have ceased and
that they could have reached the.
same agreement without the loss of
a day'B work. Work is to be resumed almost at once, though the
operators state it will lie several days
I e'ore the mines can be opened to
their full capacity.
Thu following is a summary of the
agreement decided upon:
The agreement occupies Four pnges
of typewritten matter, and the accompanying schedules take up eight
more. The parties, are the Western
Coal Operators' association, consisting of seven eimiiiiiiiies operating 111
that district, nml ihe erri'l >ye<*B of
these companies, 118 represented ly
the United Mine Workers of Aineii-
cn, District No. 18. By it the provision of agreement existing prior lo
April 1, 1907, are confirmed for a
further period of two years, excepting in so far as they are changed by
provisions of tbe new agreement.
Sixty days before expiration of the
new agreement conferences will be
hell by the parties to discuss a renewal. All persons accepting employment at mines, coke ovens and
outside plants are to be governed by
ruli s luid down in the agreement. In
the event of a local dispute the man
with a grievance will subject his
complaint to the pit boss. If tbe pit
boss and employees fail to agree the
matter shall go before the pit committee and mine superintendent. If
they fail to agree, it shall be referred
to the general manager or general
superintendent of the company concerned and the members of the district board. Should they fail to
agree tho dispute shall be re erred to
a joint committee comprising three
operators appointed by the Western
Coal Operators' association and three
miners appointed by District No. 18
of the U. M. W, of A. If this committee is unable to agree it shall endeavor to choose an independent
chairman. If it cannot do so, the
minister of labor shall he asked to
appoint Buch chairman. The decision of the committee thus constituted shall be binding upon both
parties. While the dispute is being
considered the men must remain at
work. In the event of an employee
being discharged he shall not remain
in the employ of the company while
the case is being investigated. If
the claim iB made for lost time, the
joint committee shall determine the
amount of compensation, if any.
One important subsection reads as
"Any breach of this agreement by
any of the parties hereto is not to
void the said agreement,but thesame
is to continue in full force and effect.
It iB not inteded, however, by this
subsection to abridge the right of the
men to suspend work after final settlement as herein provided, if any
operator or operators refuse to be
bound by any dcision given against
tbem under this article. Payment
for new work which may ariBe is to
be en the basis of day wages until
wage has been fixed by the joint
The article referred tois,of course,
that arranging for settlement of disputes.
The promise of Hon. W. H. Crushing, minister of public works for Alberta, that his government would introduce legislation for enacting
an eight-hour bank-to-bank day has
apparently been considered in the
section relating to hours of work.
This clause rends:
"It is understood that nothing
shall be held to utfurd any grounds
against the enactment of legislation
respecting hours of labor in the
province of Alberta."
The balance of the agreement
pro.ier deata with the rate of wages.
It provides that there shall be a 5
per cent increase on contract mining
rates at the following mines: No. 9
mine, Coul Creek; No, 3 mine, Michel, Lunbreck and Caiiiiiore. There
shall be added on outside labor an
increase of 25 cents per day on all
$2 rules, and an increase of 5 per
cent to all rales of 12.60 and o«er.
There shall he added an incrcaso of
25 per cent por day to drivers, tail
rope riders and hoist men. It provides that at Caimiorc, Bankhcad,
I.iinilbri'ck und Lille an increase of
5 per cent sliall be added toallother
transportation men and those connected with the handling of coal,
tbis increase being given on account
of the longer hours of work at those
mines. Schedules are four in number, and give details of rates to be
paid to contract miners in various
mines and to outside employees,
whether inside or outside laborers,
in all camps. Schedule rates under
iign ciiiimt ure to be minimum rates
paid, but nothing in the agreement
shall be construed to prevent the
companies liom paying higher rates
should they so desire. It is also understood that where higher rates
have  prevailed   no   reduction is to
'like place. The custom of Canmor 3'
mine of W. H. MaoNeill, Ltd., of
deducting 2 per cent from wages to
cover mine expenses shall be discontinued, and in lieu thereof shall be
substituted a deduction of 5 cents
per month for blacksmithing and
sharpening of toolB. Explosives
shall be paid for by the men. The
agreement is dated May 4,1907, and
is signed by the Western Coal Operators' association, G. G. S. Lindsey, president; Lewis Stockett, vice-
president; W. F. Little, secretary;
Pacific Coal Co., Ltd., L. Stockett,
general manager, and W. H. MaoNeill.
The men appeared to be anxiouB
to return to work, and the mines
have all resumed operations,
A short session of the city council
was held in the council chamber
Monday evening, those present being Aid. Hardy, McCallum, Mcintosh and Woodland. In the absence
of the mayor, Aid. McCallum was
voted to the chair.
A communication was read from
A. L. Clements, local C.P.R. agent.
Mr. Clements said the rate submitted by tbe council for city water,
viz., $75 for the tank tnd $1 per
tap per month, was unreasonable,
and if that was the best figuie tbey
could give the company would be
compelled to install its own pumping plant. He added, however,
tbat he would be glad to confer with
a committee from the council in regard to the matter." The council left
the matter in the hands of the water
and light committee, with instructions to act as soon as possible.
In a communication to the council, Dave Woodhead wished to know
why he had been paid at the rate ot
$2.70 instead of ft per day for his
last month's work. On motion of
Aid. Woodland, the council decided
to make the wage scale $3 per day
in future for nine hours' work.
Figures were submitted for painting the power house by J. Manly.
On motion, the council decided to
call for tenders for giving the building two coats of paint, inside and
out, and one coat on thc roof.
Some of the residents on Garden
and Cecil streets made a request for
a four-inch main, as they claimed
the present one is too small to supply all tho consumers with water.
On motion, a committeo was appointed to inspect the ground, and
they were also authorized to act in
the premises.
A resolution was adopted authorizing tho board of works to have a
pair of Btairs constructed from the
new Fourth street bridge to thc
power house.
The council then adjourned till
next Monday night.
Robert H. Cosgrove, secretary of
the Spokane Interstate Fair associa-
ciation, announces that purses aggregating ($1250 will bo awarded for two
rock drilling ctntests at the fair in
Spokane, September 23 to October 5;
also that several trophy cups, cash
prizes and diplomas will be given for
camp and district exhibits. More
space will be devoted to mineral displays than ever before in the history
of tho fair, the purpose being to show
the resources of the country. The
association will pay freight charges on
ore samples allowed to remain in the
permanent mineral display. The display will be at tho fair grounds each
year, and exhibited in tho rooms of
the Spokane chamber of commerce. QbeS Burning &un

As predicted by The Sun last week,
the strike of the coal miners in East
Kootenay was of short duration. This
province owes a great debt to Mackenzie King, deputy minister of labor,
for his untiring efforts in bringing
about a settlement of the difficulty.
No news has yet been received from
Premier McBride at the "foot of the

object the improvement of the water-
wuys#and harbors of Canada. At the
moment very necessary work is being
pushed along at Quebec and Montreal,
as they are the two points in which
the rest of Canada is mainly interested. The immense grain shipments
from the west, and the enormous increase of imports, is evidence of the
expansion of the trade of the country,
and any improvement in these two
great national shipping points is reflected throughout the other parts of
the Dominion.
Iu reply to some questions by Mr.
Borden, Mr. Fisher explained the
scheme of the government, saying in
part, the comprehensive scheme the
honorable gentleman will find in the
practical working out of it, if he will
but look at it. The scheme dealt with
by the transportation commission was
one for the transportation of our pro
ducts, especially from the plains of the
northwest to the seaboard for the purpose of export to Europe We have
been doing that in the most piactical
and effective way. We have dealt
with the necessity of a great port at
the head of Lake Superior, to which
the products of our western plains
could be brought.
That port is being provided for bv
the expenditure, altogether, of over
81,000,000, the money being given for
dredging breakwaters and other improvements at Port Arthur. Facilities
for the bringing of tho grain to this
port are being provided, and not only
by the assistance given to the building of the Canadian Northern, but also
by the assistance given to the national
transcontinental or Grand Trunk Pacific. These lines will afford better
facilities than ever were given before
for the transportation of these products to the port at the head of Lake
Superior. We have done work on
the Georgian Bav ports.
We have effected great improvements at Port Colberne to enable the
grain brought down from the upper
lakes to be transhipped in barges f<*V
transportation farther east. We have
improved the harbors on the lower
lakes and St. Lawrence, not only between Kingston and Montreal and ot
the great harbor of Montreal itself,
but between Montreal and Quebec
and eastward to the gulf. Part of
this scheme is work that we have been
doing in Quebec. The honorable gentleman wants that work defined in an
elaborate scheme. But tho genera!
scheme can easily by understood
We have carried it out piecemeal,
but. as the minister of finance has
said, wo are taking first those pieces
which are most urgent ami necessary
and the accomplishment of wfi oh will
do the greatest good at this time, bo-
sides helping the currying out of the
general scheme.
Another attempt was made by the
Conservatives to turn to political,,account the big military camp which the
Dominion government has established
at Petawawa. Under the terms of the
British North America Act, any lands
or public property may lie assumed bv
the Dominion if required for purposes
of fortifications or for the defence of
the country.
This being so, application was made
to the province of Ontario for a grant
of certain lands for the purposes
named, and everything seemed to be
going aloag smoothly until the Ontario
government suddenly chnngod front
and cried out that their rights were
being invaded.
Mr. E. M. Macdonuld, of Picton,
made a whirlwind address.one of those
utterances which are effective because
of their brevity, and convincing on
account of their logic.    "What has
caused the sudden change in Ontario's
attitude?" said he. "There was no
word of licenses, no word of the rights
of anybody else, no suggestion that
any invasion was being made of the
rights of the province which would
warrant resolutions of the legislature
against the ruthless acts of the fedir-
al government. On the contrary.down
to May 15,1906, what was the position taken by Mr. Whitney? He says,
writing to dear Sir Frederick Borden:
'We have decided that as soon as you
have completed your settlement with
the timber licensees we will grant
leases of 52,000 acres owned by tbe
province for 99 cents, at an annual
rental of $10 forthe whole quai.titv
of land.' "
So the Hon. J. P. Whitney, less
than a year ago, wrote to the minis
ter of militia declaring that he was
willing to give this whole 52,000
acres of land to the federal government for a nominal rental of $10 a
year, and on this basis he asks the
legislature of Ontario to present an I
address to the lieutenant governor asking him to protest Qgjiinst this invasion of the rights of the people of that
province by the federal government.
Mr R. L. Borden—Why didn't
they accept itl
Mr. E. M. Macdonald—Because
the premier of Ontario said to the
minister of militia and defence: There
are some political friends down there
that hove some t'm'ier Iiienses, and
as soon as you settle with my political friends in the county of Renfrew
and have given them the amount they
are asking, then I will come around
and do business with vou.
Mr. R. L. Borden—The letter to
which he alludes speaks of the rights
of the licensees, does it not; the letter
which you hnve ju tread?
Mr. E. M. Macdonald—I will read
it again. This is the position taken
by Mr. Whitney on May 16, 1906,
speaking on behalf of his government:
We have decided that as soon as you
have completed your settlement with
the timber licensees; that is, as soon
as you have settled with my
political friends in the county of Renfrew, we will give you a lease of the
the 52,000 acres of land for $10 a
year. These are the facts disclosed in
the correspondence.
Mr. Sproule—How does the honorable gentleman know they are
his political friends?
Mr.' E. M. Macdonald—My honorable friend need only turn to the honorable gentleman who sits behind him
to get his answer. If he wants to
know who they are, he had better ask
the honorable member for North Ren-
frew,who sits behind him (Mr.White);
he knows. I am not here to make
insinuations, but to discuss the facts
found in the papers. I am here to
say that the hysterical action on the
part of the Conservative government
of Ontario in passing this silly resolution, followed up as it is by this resolution in the house, is a burlesque on
free government in this country.
Now, to sum up briefly, the Ontario government places a value of $10
a year on these lands, which, by resolutions passed in their legislature, they
assert that this government is filching
from them. This vast domain of incalculable value, according to the letter to the Hon. Mr. Whitney, they
consider worth $10 a year.
Mr. Macdonald concluded his speech
in these words: "So it seems to me,
Mr. Speaker, that in the light of these
facts the attitude of the provincial
government in asking the lieutenant
governor to protest against the action
taken by the federal government, is
to the last degree fatuous and absurd."

West    Kootenay   Company
Purchases the Plant and
And That Concern Now Controls the Power Supply
of This District
Advices from Kossland state that
the West Kootenay Power & Light
company has purchased the plant
and other assets of the Cascade
Water Power com pany in order to
be able to supply Wcustomers in
the Boundary with electric  power.
Tbe Cascade Power coinpany began to furnish power in tbis district
in 1901, and has done so ever since,
but the power was inadequate to the
needs of the mines, smelters and
towns of the Boundary section. At
the request of the mine and smelter
managers, the West Kootenay Power
& Light Company erected an additional power plant and extended
pole lines from Bonnington to this
city, Phoenix, Greenwood and other
points in the Boundary at a cost ot
over a million dollars. It asked the
legislature of 1906 to give it permission to extend its lines farther west,
but whs refused on the ground that
the Cascade Water Power company
had exclusive rights within a certain  radius of tbeir works at Cas-
I cade.   Negotiations were then   be-
1 gun for the purchase of the plant
and otber assets of the Cascade
Water Power company by the West
Kootenay Power & Light company,
, which has just been concluded. The
I purchase gives the  West Kootenay
■ Power & Light company control of
the right to sell electric power in
two of the largest mining districts in
British Columbia, and its future
prosperity should be very great.
| The purchase price is withheld
The  transfer   takes effect lit once.
j The West Kootenay Power & Light
company with its new plant in operation, capable of generating 30,000
! horsepower, can supply all the present   and prospective   needs of  its
j whole territory, which now includes
a 50-mile radius fiom Bonnington
Falls and a 40-mile radius from Cascade.
A report from Nelson   states that
the  Cascade   plant will shortly be
1 closed down and eventually dismantled.

Although the coal mines in East
