Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Ottawa, April 26.—The oppnsition
flits from one point to another in a
vain endeavor to discredit the government.   Last week an onslaught was
made on the findings of the royal insurance commission, whose report revealed certain   questionable   transactions in insurance funds with which
prominent members of tho Conservative  party  both in and out of the
house hod been concerned.    After a
long debate, in which Mr. Foster, the
chief offender, mode an earnest plea to
his followers and the house, upon vote
he was condemned by about 17 to 70.
This  reflects   the  views of  his own
friends entertain of  his connection
with trust funds which   the  commissioners'  report  says  he    employed
wrongfully to his own advantage.
The Liberal program for the session
contained so much suggested legislation in the interests of all the people,
that it is no surprise that the expressed intention of submitting amendments to the electoral laws has not
been put into practical effect. Parliament has passed a large number of
bills of great importance this session,
placed itself on record by resolution
as in favor of other reforms for the future, and has revised the entire tariff
of the country, the last a work of
immense detail and endless labor.
This being the cose, it was rather a
surprise to the house when Mr. Bur
den found fault with the government
for not redeeming this particular promise. The government will do so, the
party is pledged to it, and want of
time alone has interfered with (the
due performance of this particular
pledge, The occasion, however, was
seized to bring to the attention of the
house a number of irregularities in recent elections, and it was very significant that allusion only was made to
incidents which affected the Liberal
party. Fraud and corrupt methods on
the part of the Conservatives were not
quoted as a reason for amending the
Election Act.
A very noticeable fact was that
most comprehensive references were
mode to the election of Hon. W. S.
Fielding, finance minister, and the alleged corruption which occurred. The
fact, however, that Mr. Fielding practically ignored and swept away everything that happened in the election in
question and submitted himself again
for re-election, and was returned by
an overwhelming majority, was too
indifferent a circumstance to demand
a reference. At the conclusion of his
address Mr. Borden submitted a resolution which was calculated to condemn corrupt praotices in so far as
they related to Liberal elections, and
it also was cunningly worded, so as
to constitute a confession of certain
undefined acts of corruption in the
election of certain prominent members of the government.
Hon. W.  S. Fielding, minister ef
to accomplish that result. He,
however, deprecated the spirit in
which the resolution had been constructed and presanted to the house.
The finance- minister reminded the
house that the validity of the resignation of Mr. Hyraan was questioned
by the opposition, and it was at their
instance that the matter was referred
to the oommittee on privileges and
elections, and from this fact may be
traced all the delay which has occurred. Mr. Fielding informed the
house that he had received a notification from Mr. Hyiii.m that he had
sent   another    resignation  to   M
Mr. Fielding gave expression to a
vigorous protest against the view advanced by the leader of the opposition
that the election laws required amend
ment in consequence of illegal and
corrupt methods empl(y*d by Liberals
alone. In no sense did he attempt to
justify wrongdoing, but he did strenuously protest against the view that all
the virtues remained with the opposition and all the evil deeds were done
by Liberals. He thought the record
of Liberals would compare favorably
with that of Conservatives, and history showed that the records were
crowded wilh cases of corruption.
In no way must he be understood
as condoning wrongdoing, but he re
pudiated the suggestion that all of it
was confined to the Liberals. Amid
great applause tbe finance minister
alluded to the historic fact that Sir
John A. Macdonald, the great head
of the Conservative party, was unseated twice, and once narrowly missed
disqualification, the judge declaring
that corruption was widespread on
that occasion. He referred also to
the unseating nf Sir J. G. Abbott, another Conservative premier for corruption, and amid great laughter
the finance minister reminded the house
that Hon. Mr. Foster was unseated in
New Brunswick, and also the predecessor of Mr. Borden as member for
Halifax, Mr. Thomas E. Kinney, was
also unseated.
Mr. Fielding said he could give
many more examples of the wrong
doifig of Conservatives in elections,
but he hud quoted enough to sustain
his contention. Mr. Fielding made a
strong point very near to tho subject
at issue, when lie iiifnnii.nl' the house
that Dr. Weldon, his late Conservative opponent at Queen's, publicly
stated that he had been offered a constituency at the last general election,
and consented to run provided the
Conservative would conduct an honest election. The Conservatives said
they would not do so, and ho declined
to run.
At this point Mr. A. K. McLean,
of Lunenbnrg, N.S., arose and said: I
can testify to those words; I heard
them used by Dr. Weldon.
Mr. Sinclair, of Guysboro, N.S.,
also rose and said: I confronted him
with those words at a public meeting
atLockport and he did not deny them.
Mr. Fielding continued that he had
never heard them denied, and now we
huve, said he, the leader of the opposition coming into the houie with the
profession that his party is holier than
the Liberal party, and undertaking to
from experience tliere are great dilfi-
culties in accomplishing such jeform.
The resolution of the leader of the opposition is couched in terms I cannot
approve of, and whiie I dissent from
much that he has said, still the safeguarding of the electoral vote in this
country has the hearty approval ofthe
government, and there shall be no
failure on the part of the Liberal
purty to bring about such reform."
Following some remarks from Mr
Lennox, who took much satisfaction
to himself by reading disconnected
pieces of evidence from various Liberal election trials, Mr. Alex Johnston, of Cape Breton, delivered a telling speech, and one that covered the
ground so admirably that the government supporters added nothing to it.
Mr. Johnston first administered a
rebuke to the leader of the opposition
for selecting quotations from judgments of certain Liberal election petitions, whioh scarcely reflected precisely the opinion of the court. The
honorable gentleman showed how a
wrong impression hud been created by
reading portions which were much
qualified by other portions which remained unread. He ulso alluded to
the fact that the election case of Mr.
Fielding had formed the basis of most
of Mr. Borden's observations.
"Why does the leader of the opposition not read the first paragraph of
the judgment which completely exonerates Mr. Fielding!" asked Mr.
Johnston. But to this there was no
reply. Mr. Johnston then read the
paragraph in question. It is as follows:
"What impresses a judge with the
hardship of the position of u respond
ent who strives to serve his country
during the best years of his life, in
parliament, and who is guided by the
instincts of a stuiesmun, is that he has
to suffer for the illegal conduct of
mere politicians."
Mr. Johnston neverely criticized
Mr. Borden for presenting u garbled
account of the election proceedings,
and omitting to read a very important
paragraph which had a vital bearing
on the case. He spoke also of the
verdict since given by the people of
Nova ISi'otiu, which wus u complete
vindication for the minister of finance.
Mr. Johnston mude un extended
reference to the reasons which impelled Dr. Weldon tn decline the eun-
dldocy at the general election, which
he showed   conclusively   wus   because
the Conservative leaders who put him
forward would not consent to run a
clean election. At this point in his
speech Mr. Johnston read a letter sent
by Dr. Weldon to the leader of the
opposition, in which Dr. Weldon
practically admitted that he declined
to be a candidate for the only reason
that his Conservative friends would
not agree to run a clean election. This
proposition he proved beyond the
power of contradiction, and notwithstanding many interjections and interruptions from members of the opposi*
tion, Mr. Johnston emerged from the
debate with his point unshaken and
his case proved to the hilt.
Mr. Johnston remarked upin the
fact that the debate had centered
around the election of   Mr. Fielding,

pose the unworthy tactics resorted to
by the opposition in their desire to
defeat Mr. Fielding. He gave voluminous quotations from the Halifax
papers, quotations which he said were
inspired and and not denied by Mr.
Borden, to the effect that a well
known business man had arrived in
the couutry with a corrupting fund.
Not one word of truth was in it, but
such deception was regarded by the
Conservatives as clean political pruc
tices.
Mr. Johnson in vigorous language
demonstrated that the Tory press
knew that the incidents they published were imaginary. Dr. Weldon
knew the allegations were false, and
the man who supplied the leader of the
oppostion with the information knew
it was false, and yet that gentleman
based two speeches upon it. Further
than this, Dr. Weldon was told that
affidavits denying these things had
been made, and although an opportunity was given him to make some
amends, this pure Conservative, who
would only run elections upon abso-
cleun lines, declined to say a word,
but took what advantage he couid
from the published scandals.
Alluding to the statement made
that $600 had been spent in Queen's
and Shslbourne, Mr. Johnston expressed the opinion thut very few men
in the house spent less, and he desired
to say that the money was expended
legitimately and not corruptly, and he
resented the imputation sought to be
put upon the electors of Queen's and
Shelburne that they were purchasable
people.
Mr. Johnston completely turned
the tables on the opposition by the
following allusion to an election fund
which the Conservatives say would be
sufficient to regain the constituency of
Hulifax.    This is the circular:
"The organizers feol that unless the
financial difficulty referred to can be
grappled with and settled, no permanently effective organization can bo
built up. There should be definite,surc
and constant funds, which could be
drawn upon at the right moment for
party purposes—
It would lie curious, said Mr Johnston, to know what is the right moment, whether it is two or three years
before election, or whether it is on the
eve of un election. The circulur continues:
—una this fund should be ullowed
to uccuniulute between elections, if not
nOJessurily expended, so thut it will bo
there when needed.
"Not u greut deal of monoy is ro
quired, und if the burden of providing
it be well distributed as to time of
payment and number of contributors,
that burden need hardly lie felt. Five
thousand dollars per annum judiciously, and above all, legitimately
used, would be ample, so the organizers feel, to place Hulifax within the
Conservative ranks as of yore."
Five thousand dollars a year for
five years, $25,000—that is what my
honorable friend's friends think is required to bring the constituency of the
city ami county of Halifax within the
ranks of the Conservative party once
mo:e, I wonder, suid Mr. Johnston,

Strike in East Kootenay Affects 2000 Men in the
Boundary
Tuesday noon tbe Granby smelter's coke supply became exhausted
ns a consequence of the strike of the
coal miners in East Kootenay, and
the largest copper reduction works
in Canada was forced to shut down.
It was the most complete closedown since the smelter was first
blown in, over seven years ago,
workmen, mechanics, electricians
and everybody connected with tbe
works being laid off. When operations will be resumed depends entirely on the outcome of the strike in
the coal fields. It may be in three
weeks, and then again it may not be
in three months. At present, however, all indications point to an early
resumption of work.
On Monday evening a conference
was held at the Yale hotel until a
late hour between the various managers and heads of many of the leading mining and smelting concerns of
the Boundary and Kootenay, those
present being W. H. Aldridge, general manager of the Canadian Consolidated Mining & Smelting company, Trail; R. H. Stewart, mine
superintendent of the above company; A. B. W. Hodges, general superintendent of the Granby Consolidated; Charles Biescl, superintendent
of the Snowshoe mine at Phoenix;
W. C. Thomas, superintendent of
the Dominion Copper company's
smelter at Boundary Falls, and J.
E. MacAllister, superintendent of
the British Columbia Copper coin-
puny at Greenwood. Topics concerning the mining and smelting affairs of the district were discussed,
but whether or not any action was
taken respecting the present labor
trouble has not been made public.
At thc mines in Phoenix from 300
to .'100 men have been laid off, leaving from 100 to 150 only on the
mine payrolls, the smallest number
that has been employed by the
Granby company in that camp for a
number of years.
The Boundary Falls smelter of the
Dominion Copper company has been
out of commission for over a week
now, but up to thc present time
nearly the entire force employed at
the mines of that company has been
kept at work.
The British Columbia Copper
company's smeller at Greenwood has
a small supply of coke and coal
on hand, and is still being operated. Thc Snowshoe mine is alt-o
working and shipping oro to thnt
smelter.
It is only a question of a few days
now when a general suspension of
the mining and smelting industry
throughout the Boundary will take
place. The strike in the East Kootenay will throw over 2000 men ont
employment in tbis district alone.
The sprinkling cart resumed busi
ness at the old stand this week, which
is a sure indication that the name of
dust will henceforth be mud. •Uf-? Ifotung &un

FRIDAY,  MAY 3, 1907
In view of the far-reaching effects
of the strike in East Kootenay, it is
difficult to understand how tbat
struggle can be prolonged for any
length of time. A strike tbat throws
thousands of willing workingmen out
of employment hundreds of miles
away from the scene of the dispute,
will not be meekly tolerated either
by the people or the government.
For this reason the people of the
Boundary district should take an
optimistic view of the present situation. We look for an early adjustment of the difficulty.
Grand Forks does not depend entirely on tbe mining and smelting
industry for her prosperity, and is,
in this respect, more fortunately situated than many of the other towns
in the Boundary country. At present there is considerable railway
construction in progress in the city
and vicinity, giving employment to
a large force of men. And the ranching and fruit growing industries are
contributing materially to the wealth
of the community. In a few years
these alone will support a city of
twice our present population.
were modest, and promised to keep
the youth's secret after they
had been presented wiili a few choice
cigars. But the customs officers
and immigration inspectors were not
so easily satisfied. With ull the
rice in evidence, they naturally suspected that tbe young man hada train
load of Chinese following him. They
stuck pretty close to him until the
train reached Marcus. How he
squared himself with them has not
been made public. After leaving
Marcus the news agentbecame aware
of the fact that there was a brideless
groom on board tbe train, and he
made him buy all sorts of books on
domestic topics—such as, "How
to Manage a Young Wife," '-Two
Can Live Where One Would Starve
to Death," "How lo be Happy
Though Married," and a host of
others, too numerous to mention.
In Spokane the young man became
quite indignant when the hotel clerk
asked him if he wanted the bridal
chamber. When he returned to this
city the Grand Forks band was at
the station, ready to welcome the
young couple, but when he alighted
from the train alone, the the musicians went home without even playing a funeral march. It has not yet
been learned if the young man really
intended to get married, and was
prevented from doing bo on account
of going broke in an endeavor to
square himself respecting the presence of rice, or whether he was
merely fooling when he made the
announcement.
ELECTION PURITY
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
During tbe present week steel has
been laid through the city on the
North Fork extension of the Kettle
Valley line, and construction trains
are now making irregular trips right
past the side entrance (or exit of
people who come to lick the editor)
o* The Sun office. Astartwasmadeat
tbe C.P.R. Y, and tne steel gang will
reach the Third street bridgo, where
there is yet a small fill to be made,
this evening. When this is finished,
the track will be laid across the
bridge and connected with the Republic line. The work of laying the
steel on the gap between the C.P.R.
Y and Lequime's sawmill is also
being vigorously prosecuted, and
good progress is reported from the
upper end of the line. In a couple
of weeks, it is expected, a man will
be able to go from Republic to
Lynch creek without change of cars;
and tbe day may not be far distant
whon the traveler can take a Kettle
Valley line sleeper in Spokane at
night and awake the next morning
on the main line of tho C.P.R.
A siding has been put in a short
distance from the court house, probably for tho purpose of sidetracking
some ot thc county court cases,
A young clerk in a clothing store
in this city left for a short visit to
Spokane last Sunday morning. Hi -
fore taking his departure he informed his landlady and fellow-
boarders that he intended to bring
back ' a better half with him. As
Cupid has been working overtime in
that house of late, they took him at
his works, and proceeded to play a
practical joke on him. And this lead
to a series of awkward amplications.
His overcoat pockets, and all other
available apertures, were filled with
rice. When the young man got on
thc train some of this staple Chinese
foodstuff overflowed its confines.
The first to notice this fact were the
train crew, customs officers and immigration inspectors.   The trainmen
Mayor Hammar will leave fot
Nelson next Monday to attend the
annual convention of the Grand
Lodge of Knights ot Pypthias. It is
expected that he will he accompanied by about 25 knights from
this city.
The pupils of Miss Olding's division at the public school had a days
outing last Saturday. It was an
ideal day for picnic purposes, as the
weather was cold enough to make
ice cream without expending any
manual labor.
PUBLIC SCHOOL REPORT
The enrollment at the public
school is still gradually increasing,
the number in attendance last month
being 307. The average attendance,
however, is not what it should be,
for an average absence each day of
over 57 is much too high at this
time of the year, notwithstanding
the fact that there has been some
sickness amongst the children. A
percentage regularity of at least 90
could easily be maintained in this
city, were it not for the laxity of a
few parents, who by such laxity retard not only the progress of their
own children, but that of the whole
school. Following is the report for
the month just past:

if my honorable friend, who wus so
aliirined at the expenditure of 'JO00 in
the county of Queen's und Shalburne,
would have been ulurmed had he seen
this circular. I am sure that if the
honorable member for South Simeoe
(Mr. Lennox) had been uwureof this
circular, he would have shrunk from
the task imposed on him this afternoon and have refused to take up a
brief against the finance minister. I
am sure that he would have shrunk
from the proposition, set out in this
circular, to spend $26,000 in the county of Hulifax in order to bring back
the Conservative party into the fold.
He could not have been aware of that
circular, or he would have condemned
it as roundly as lie did this expenditure of 8600."
Mr. Johnston quoted the Toronto
News as saying that the Conservatives
had a greater campaign fund in
Queen's and Shelburne in 1904 than
the Liberals. To this Mr. Borden
expressed his entire ignorance, and
Mr. Johnston ad viced him to read the
paper and see for himself. Mr. John
ston stated that corruption existed in
the Conservative party on a gigantic
scale.
After giving instances of Conservative corruption in various parts of the
Dominion, instances which he sa'd
must be well within the knowledge of
the leader of the opposition, Mr. Johnston concluded his lucid and convincing speech in these terms:
"When the time comes, the leader
of the opposition will And that the
Liberal members in this house will
not be lacking in their efforts te see
that the most perfect election laws
shall be placed on the statute book,
and their observance enforced. I repeat, Mr. Speaker, speaking for myself, and I am quite sure for those
who sit around me, that we are sin.
cerely anxious to have the franchise
of this country exercised as becomes
the high character of our people."
Not content with the significant verdict of the house as to his dealings
with the Foresters' money, Mr. Foster
caused his friends to bring up the case
of the insurance report again on Tuesday.
In an attempt to help the cause of
Mr. Foster, Col. Sam Hughes incidentally damned it. He said that
Fowler and company had paid too
much for the lunds, nnd he hud told
them so. This being admitted, it follows that the Foresters put too much
monev in their purchase of lands;
were taken at an advance. Col.
Hughes also remarked that it was in
consequence of his strictures upon the
value of the property that head officials of the Foresters looked askance at
the investment.
A man who cannot accept the verdict of his friends must be hard to
convince. The Montreal Star, Conservative paper, agrees with the Toronto Globe, which says of Mr. Foster's explanation, thut he juggled too
much, ho denied too much, und
that the fact was established thnt he
profited in private speculations of trust
funds. These are the ugly facts of the
ease, and they won't down and cannot be explained uwuy. The Ottawa
Journul, friendly Ui Mr. Foster, denies his contention thnt the funds were
not Foresters' funds. Hud the money
been lost the Foresters would have
lost it.
The whole thing is summed up in
these words: A ninnwhocnnnot satisfy
or convince his political friends cannot satisfy the people of Canada.

.GEORGE B. MASSIE. TOPICS OF THE TOWN
A. B. W. Hodges, general superintendent of the Granby Consolidated, last Friday received bis new 20-
h.p., four cylinder, Franklin automobile, and has since made the
swift horses in this city look like 29J-
cents. It is said that he has already
made fifty miles an hour with it.
Assistant Superintedent Williams,
who has fallen heir to Mr. Hodges'
old machine, is working overtime
in an endeavor to qualify as a chauffeur. He is gaining great headway;
but some of the buildings at the
smelter are placed where the public
thoroughfare should have been
located. This is a great inconvenience to proficient motorists.
GENERAL NEWS ITEMS

the attorney general last Friday announced in the' house that, after giving the question of the Lord's Day
Act enforcement serious consideration
and conferring with his colleagues, lie
had decided that he would not give assent to any prosecutions under tho
iAct.
A, D. Aloreison, Ihe jeweler, went

the business he recently purchased
from Geo. E. Dey into shape. He
intends to bring a practical man
from the east to manage his Phoen'x
branch.
The Grand Forks-Franklin mail
service will be resumed tomorrow,
providing the stage doesn't run up
against a slide that will necessitate
turning back to tbis city.
All free miners' licences expire on
May 31et, and should be renewed on
or before that date.
Dr. Hall's amendment to the Municipal Clause.i Act, whieh will exclude money borrowed for school purposes from the general borrowing
power of a municipal council, was
merged in a general amendment to the
Municipal Clauses Act. In this shape
it passed tho provincial legislature last
week, and cities will be enabled to
borrow money for school purposes over
and above the limitations for general
purposes. -

Some people are born great, while
others make their imaginative faculties answer the same purpose.
The grave  levels all rank, but the
tombstone doesn't.
Little things are the things that
tell—say a little one of about five
years, for instance.
It seems a little inconsistent for us
to send missionaries over to China to
teach them how to get to heaven tree,
and then charge them SOUO for landing in this country.
After all, there's nothing new under
the sun. Tnere is not iiiik-Ii difference in the fig leaf of Eve and the
evening gown of the present day. In
time the latter may cover the upper
portion of the society belle as well.
An eastern editor has decided to
drop news per work and enter the
ministry. His struggles with the
printer's devil sho make it an easy
task for bim to vanquish Old Nick
himself.
A clergyman recently preached a
rather exhaustive sermon from the
text,"Thou art weighed in the balance
and found wanting." After the congregation had listened about an hour
some began to get wearied and went
out; others followed, greatly to the
minister. Soon another person started, whereupon the preacher stopped
his sermon and said: "That's right,
gentlemen; as soon as you're weighed
pass out."
What a howl would go up if newspapers were to criticise individuals as
freely as many people criticise the
newspaper. Every issue of a live and
reputable newspaper is a mantle of
charity; and the matter left out—
truth, not gossip—would often more
than equal the volume that is published. If an editor could get out a
cold-fact edition of his paper some
day, and then get up in a tree and
wateli the results—wow! What a
picture 'twould be.
There is no end of fun in minding
your own business, and it makes people like you better. It is better to
have others stuck on you than to be
stuck on yourself. Don't knjek; don't
get stubborn; don't roast—just jolly.
Everybody likes to be jollied. Be a
good fellow—it's dead easy. Help
you!self along; push your friends with
you. No man ever helped himself by
knoi'kingothi'i- people. You cant climb
the ladder of fume by stepping on
other people corns—and they are their
corns, not yours—and they are tender. Help everybody; get hold with
both hands when there is a chance to
help your town. Run' youi hatchet;

No Change in East~Kootenay.
Condition Locally
There is apparently no change
in the strike situation in the
East Kootenay coal region. The result of the vote of the unions yesterday, to decide whether the men are
to return to work or not pending a
decision of the conciliation board,
has not yet been learned.
In this city and in Phoenix the
labor unions have submited new
wage scales to the Granby company,
and a number of conferences have
been held between the unions and
the general superintendent of the
company. Another meeting is to be
held this evening. The new scale
for the smelter employees is practically the same as that which was in
force when the twelve-hour day prevailed. Nearly all the increases asked
for in the new scale have been conceded by the coinpany already, and
there is every indication of an amicable adjustment long before the
coke commences to arrive.
In Phoenix it is understood that
the miners are asking for an increase
of 50 cents per day.
The Great Northern in Phoenix is
selling about sixty tickets per day
to miners who are leaving the camp.
A large number of smelterman are
also departing from this city for
southern points.
James Newby's Ranch  Sold

acreB being admirably adapted for
fruit growing. The consideration is
reported to have been in the neighborhood of 830,000. -
