Foster Made Profits on the
Side While Manager of
Trust Funds
Operations Concealed   Until
Insurance Commission Exposed Them
Special Correspondence of Tlte Sun.
Ottawa, April 19.—Parliamentary
history does not furnish a parallel of
the brilliant and scholarly speech delivered in the house on Wednesday last
by Hon. Mr. Aylesworth, minister, of
justice, in reply to a statement made
by Hon. Mr, Foster, whose questionable dealings with'the trust funds of
the Forresters, under the shelter of
what is known as the Union Trust
coinpany had been so scathingly commented upon by the royal commission
on insurance.
For many months Mr. Foster,smart-
iug under the publicity which attached
to the revelations before the commission, had threatened and pleaded and
supplicated for an opportunity to place
himself in a better light before his
fellow-members of the house, and was
given an opportunity upon voting the
money for the expenses of the eommis
sion in committee of supply.
The honorable gentleman took full
advantage of his opportunity and
strove with all his ability to make the
worse appear the better cause. The
prominent pleas maae in his three
hour address were:
1. That th "mutters were private
and should not huve been revealed.
2. That the commission oversteppi d
its powers, and was not impartial.
3. That the whole affair was a
scheme to ruin hiin politically.
Mr. Foster's anxiety tu explain his
handling of trusl funds It-il some people to think tnat probably lie had an
explanation that would appeal to reasonable men, and that he had been
misrepresented and prejudiced. After
hearing his appeal, made with all the
casuistry ami iogic of which lie is possessed, and all the accompaniments of
gestures well known to the trained
politician, there is only one conclusion
to arrive at, only one voidict to render. Mr. Foster did the t liugcharged
a;ainst hiui. He was guilty of hand
linn trust funds inegularly and iu de
fiance of statutory enactment.
With les.iect to these affairs, Mr.
Foster directed hs energies to disputing thu legal aspect uf liis position,
contrary to tiie views expressed by the
minister of justice. He denied few
things, but entered Upon lengthy cx-
p'anations of things ut' small impor)
The house heard hill) foi hours with.

Hi*, listener.*- carefully analysed every
suitouce impartially, for everybody
real /.*d that tl e political future of a
p iblic man was at stake. At the con-
elusion of the statement judgment was
sus] ended until Mr. Aylesworth had
replied, and then the result of the
verdict was no longer in doubt. A few
simple words express much, for they
convey the whole story. Mr. Foster
had fa'lerl to eriiivinpc the house.
As he failed to I'mivinee the house,
so he will fail to eoiivince the country,
for the honse is representative of the
country, It may perhaps be an occasion of regret that a man of the undoubted ability and brilliant parts of
Mr. Foster should be lost to public
life, but it is better so than that a
man who had failed with respect to
lesser trusts should by any possibility
be placed ir charge of the greater ones
pertaining to his country.
Hon. Mr. Ayleswosth approached
his subject in a calm and judicial
manner, never once sacrificing logic to
oratorical effect, but upon occasions
rising to lofty heights of cogent reasoning and   unanswerable   deduction.
The minister of justice indicated
that the commission was appointed
in the publio interest to investigate
the operations and transactions and
the investments of every- life insurance company doing business in Canada. Mr. Aylesworth alluded to the
alacrity and willingness with which
officials of other companies had produced their books, and compared this
with the attitude of Mr. Foster, who
had only done so fearing the consequences of refusal. Answering Mr.
Foster's complaint that he was not allowed counsel, the minister of justice
reminded, .him that he (Foster) was
ohly a witness, and that in no court
was a witness allowed counsel, neither
was it necessary, for the court always
protected witnesses. In Mr. Foster's
case, however, he was allowed counsel
in the person of a very eminent man,
Mr. Nesbitt, who participated freely
in the discussions.
The minister of justice expressed
surprise at Mr. Foster's complaint at
not being allowed to give his whole
story, in view of the fact that he asked
and received permission to make a
statement before the commission, and
in fact did make a very extended statement after having informed the com
mission that they had searched him
right through. He had concluded his
remarks in these woi ds:
'I thank you, your honor, for allowing me to make this stateinent,and
I do not think that 1 should leave
this box without acknowledging your
uovarii ig courtesy to ine; though I
have sometimes had the audacity to
question your ruling, it has been on a
question of principle, and nothing
personal, of course. 1 do not. think 1
ought to leave either without acknowledging that so far as Mr. Shep-
ley is concerned he has treated me
with unvarying courtesy, and all who
have been associated with him, the
officers and others, have been more
than kind."
Mr. Aylesworth emphasized the
duty of the commissioners to make a
rigid examination into the afl'airs of
aii insurance companies without feur
or favor, and disclaimed any undue
pressure upon Mr, Foster's eompany—
the Union Trust comptny. He cited
the contention of Mr. Foster's counsel, that while tne investments uf the
Forresters might lie examined, those
of the Union Trust company were
outside ef the scope of the commissioners' powers. The minister of justice
showed the faiaey of tins view—that
because the Forresters had handed
over their funds to the Union Trnst
company to invest, the investments
could not be followed. He contended
that subsidiary companies formed for
the purpose of hnndl-ini insurance
funds cunie properly within the -cope
of the commission, and distanced the
objections raised by counsel for companies other than thut represented by
Mi. Foster to prevent such examinations, and how in evory case such  ob
jection had been overruled; ull came
within the law, all were treated alike.
Mr. Hellmuth, counsel appointed by
the Ontario government to watch the
proceedings before commission, upheld
the opinion of the commissioners 'n
these words:
"I should have thought that if it
had been shown that the Union Trust
company, as stated hy my learned
friend, Mr. Shepley, had been really a
creature of the Forresters, created by
them for the purpose of investing their
funds, not directly, but indirectly, an
investigation would be as proper as au
investigation into the investments
made by the creator of the creature."
Mr. Aylesworth carefully traced the
history of the formation of the Union
Trust company, with Mr. Foster as
manager, and how $1,996,000 of its
total of $2,000,000 of capital stock
was bought by money of the Forresters, that in other words it was a subsidiary company or creature of the
Forresters, and their money, and
theirs alone, was represeuted by its
capital stock, with the exception of
$4000, which four gentlemen, including Mr. Foster, took to qualify as directors.
The minister of Justice made an extended reference to the laws of the
country, which wisely throws about
the funds of insurance companies restrictions as to the course of their investments. He depicted in graphic
language the various expedients to
evade the law praciiced by those interested, who, finding themselves hampered by the restrictions which the
law has east about their investments,
endeavor to set the law at naught by
forming a trust company which for all
practical purposes shall be another
name for the insurance company itself. In such case every restraint and
every guard may be cast to the winds
and wild speculation takes the place
of legal investments, and the funds of
the widow and fatherless are gravely
This very course had lieen adopted
in the creation of the Union Trust
company, of which Mr. Foster was
manager, for all its $2,000,000 of capital except $4000 was tho money of the
Forresters, and the trust company
speculated with it, free from the restraints imposed by the insurance laws.
Evils such as this hail been unearthed
in consequence of the labors of the
insurance commission, which throughout had acted only in the public interest, and that the law might not be
Mr. Aylesworth devoted some time
to the consideration of the pi *n made
by Mr. Foster that his operations as
manager of the trust company had
b ten successful. The minister uf jus-
tce, in severe langnage, invited the
house to consider what would have
been Ihe case had the speculative
transactions of Mr. Foster with the
funds of Forresters resulted disastrously. His opinion was that it
would have been a repetition of the
Ontario Bank atl'air, the manager of
which is now a convicted felon.
Mr. Aylesworth caustically ..lluded
to the fact that Mr. Foster hud received a commission of $5000 while
manager of t he trust company out of
the tru-t funds. This amount Mr.
Foster disputed, but ho admitted it
was $125 I. Mr. Aylesworth severely
criticised this incident, denouncing the
act in unmeasured terms, particularly
in the face of a resolution passed by
the trust company directors that no
officer of the company should receive
commission   from   the opposite side.
Every penny of this commission was
the property of the trust company,
wrongfully received by Mr. Fostei,
the manager of that company, while in
its employ and transacting its business. Mr. Foster explains this incident by saying it arose out of a land
transaction, the money to finance
which waa borrowed by himself and
others from the Forresters director*".
Another case of taking commissions
from   trust   funds   arising out of another land transaction is admitted by
Mr. Foster in the following letter:.
Toronto, January 5, 1904.
Yours of January 2nd duly received
re Pritchard's. sale of Swan river district lands. The contracts will be
with the Union Trust company in
trust. Cash payment will be made to
credit of vendors in Standard Bank of
Toronto on receipt and signing of satisfactory documents of agreements.
Twenty-five cents per acre is to be
paid as commission on the sale. This
can either be deducted from the cash
payment, or better, you can send a
cheque therefore signed by the vendors
in favor of myself. I will then deposit to credit of vendors the whole
cash payment and present cheque
which will be paid therefor. Kindly
see that purchasers are allowed to pay
up whole amount due on lands at any
time without notice or bonus. Yours
truly, George E. Foster.
Accordingly a cheque for $2480, or
25 cents an acre on 9920 acres, was
issued to Mr. Foster. This, said Mr,
Aylesworth, was trust money, money
of the Forresters, and although concealed in the Union Trust company,
became a proper subject for inquiry
by the commissioners to enquire into
whose pockets the money went, they
are assailed in the house by Mr. Foster as being false to every principle of
honor, and accused of desiring his political downfall.
Having control of trust funds to a
large amount, Mr. Foster entered into
negotiations with several of his political friends, members of the house, to
buy from them 200,000 acres of land,
upon which they held an option. Mr.
Foster, while manager of the Union
Trust company, Imught these lands for
the Foster-McGillivruy syndicate for
$9U0,000, a profit of $200,000 to his
political friends. This money was advanced by Mr. Fostei, manager of the
Union Trust company, to Messrs. Foster, McGillivray it Co., or a new entity called into existence for the purpose, and known as the Great West
Land company. The security was the
lands only, and the money was the
money of the Forresters which had
been exchanged for trust company
The only asset this company had
was its capital stock of $100,000, and
its indebtedness to the Union Trust
company of $000,000; 482-J shares of
this stock were divided between Mr.
Foster and two friends, somo went to
other parties, and 337 J remained, it
bring understood that thoy wero designed as compensation for the financier who should find the money to
make payments for the land,
These S87*| shares wore worth about
$85,000 in cash, and were the property of the Union Trust company.
Mr. Aylesworth carefully reviewed
the dnty of the commissioners to trace
this money, which was trust company
money, therefore Forresters money.
He went very carefully over the events
which led to six directors of the
Union Trust company discussing as to
whether these shares should be returned to Messrs Foster k Co. Finally n direetors meeting was said to be
held, although it is sworn to by witnesses and directors that they knew

Prospects Good for Early Resumption of Work in the
Coal Fields
Men Have Submitted   Proposal Which Operators
Will Likely Accept
Fernie, April 24.—The situation
here has taken a decided turn for
the better. The conference that was
to have been held tonight at 7:30
was postponed until tomorrow morning at 9 at the request of the operators.
Everybody connected with thc
trouble is confident the end has been
Seen tonight Vice-President Lewis
of the miners,said: "The prespects
of finding a solution of tbe present
difficulty this week are more favorable than they have been any time
since the beginning of negotiations.
We have submitted a proposition,
and the operators will tomorrow
morning present a counter proposition to us, and we do not know if it
will be acceptable or not. Any other
representation of the situation is
likely to leave a wrong impression.
The ofliceis of tbe union are hopeful. The critical stage has arrived,
and the slightest thing may jeopardize the whole situation."-
Deputy Minister of Labor Mackenzie King is also of tbe opinion
tbat the end is not far off. In an
interview he said that the situation
at the present time is brighter than
on any occasion since the Calgary
"I waB hopefnl last night," he said
tonight, "and I am very hopeful
now. Tbe country haB no reason to
be alarmed. I am satisfied with the
progress of events. It is much better to have a delay of a few days,
while ihe disputants come together,
than to force a third party
into the dispute. If I see the parties meeting together in joint conference and believe they are getting
near to a settlement there iB no need
of government intervention, but if I
came here and found them noi, trying to solve the difficulty, I would
take a different course. A voluntary
settlement is preferable . to what
might take place by the intervention
of the new law, and is much more
likely to be permanent. As it was
when thc bill was first introduced,
it was not the number of investigations that would be held under it
that would justify its enactment, but
tho number of investigations it
would obviate thc necessity of hold
ing. It the public had been getting
ill-treated in any way, and there
were not prospects of a settlement,
some tactics would have been followed that would have put a stop to
the dispute in short order. The new
law is acting just as it was designed
to do."
President Sherman, of the miners'
union, also says there iB a probability oj a settlement at the conference
tomorrow morning.
Those in a position to know estimate that it will take about two days
after ihe contract is agreed upon for
the men to get back to work. 5flje -EfonUuj Brnx

FRIDAY,  APRIL 2G,  1907
With the completion of the Fourth
street traffic bridge, a number of
citizens have begun to wonder what
the city intends to do with the
First street bridge—repair it or let it
float down the river with the stream.
Public sentiment on this question
has not as yet been very clearly defined, and it ia merely for the purpose of getting the subject before the
people that these remarks are made.
As near as can be ascertained, the
ratepayers in the business district
are nearly a unit in favor of repairing the structure and maintaining it
for geneial traffic, while the people
west of Third street think that a foot
bridge would be sufficient at First
street. This matter should be thoroughly ventilated in the near future.

saddest part of the whole business
is, that when the Argonaut reaches
London he is liable to get lost in the
throng and never be heard from. If
he receives an audience at all, the
chances are he, together with his
"better terms" question, will be referred back to Ottawa.
The energetic and effective measures taken by the federal govern1
ment to avert a suicidal struggle between capital and labor in the East
Kootenay coal fields, show the difference between a government that
acts as well as talks nnd a government that merely talks—like the
Victoria talking machine, tor instance.

A Substantial Presentation
A large number of prominent citizens gathered at the city hull on
Wednesday evening for the purpose
of presenting Aid. John Donaldson,
who is about to remote to Saskatchewan, with a handso*ne gold watch
and chain and the following address.
Mayor Hammar, in his presentation
speech, reviewed the services rendered the city by Mr. Donaldson,
and said that in his departure the
city would lose an efficient official
and the business communtity' an
honest and upright citizen:
To John Donaldson, Esq —Honored and Dear Sir: As mayor of
Grand Forks, and on behalf of the
many friends who have learned wilh
the deepest regret of the approaching departure from the city of yourself and Mrs. Donaldson and family,
I accede with pleasure to the request
that I address a few words to you,
on this occasion, expressive of the
Sentiments towards you of the citizens of this place generally. As a
member of the eity council you have
at all times done ynur utmost to advance the best interests of the city,
and as a private citizen your honesty and integrity under all circumstances have won the respect and admiration of all. In social and musical circles you and Mrs. Donaldson
will be greatly missed, and you may
rest assured that whenever you or
any member of your family have
occasion to return here a warm and
appreciative welcome will await you
on all sides. It iB with pleasure,
therefore, that I present you with
this watch and chain as a token of
the esteem and regard in which you
are held by your legion of friends in
this city. It is the earnest hope of
us all that you and your family may
for the future enjoy continued success and good health. Signed on
behalf of tho citizens of Grand Forks,
Jefkkuy Hammar, Mayor.
Mr. Donaldson wns deeply affected by this nddresB, but made an
appropriate reply, in the course of
which he expressed deep regret at
the exigencies which compelled him
and his family to sever their social
ties with the citizens of Grand Forks.
M Burrell and a number of other
citizens also spoke briefly, all
testifying to the excellent qualities
of Mr. Donaldson ns ii citizen, und
expressing regret at his near departure from the city.
(Concluded From Page One)
nothing of them, and there is no   record   of   tliilm, in  which these  shares
were transferred, anil referring to the
incident, Mr. Aylesworth says:
"And at meetings where these
three directors were in one instance
in actual majority, there were 337**
shares of the land company which had
from the first been designed to bo the
absolute property of the tiust company as consideration for making these
advances, which were shares which
had been earned by that company in
the risk it had undertaken, diverted
from the purpose for which they were
intended and put into the possession,
for their private benefit, of the three
directors  present, one of  these direc
tors being Mr. Foster himself."*
Continuing,Mr. Aylesworth charged
Mr. Foster with particidating wrong
fully in profits that belonged to the
Union Trust company, his direct accusation being in the following language:
"We have, at the very least computation, -)f85,000 which was the property of j the Union Trust Co. h
had earned it, which hud contracted
for it, and which, by this transaction,
and upon these minutes I'have referred to, has passed from the |*posses-
sion of the eompany into the possession of its managing director, Mr.
Foster,*jand hisj two fellow directors
under  circumstances  where
mainiler   of   the   directors, wb
credited with being present, say  they
never knew anything about it."
Mr. Aylesworth commented upon
other tiMiisaetiiuis of Mr Fnster, one
of them in particular referring to a
sale to the Great West Land company
of 8640 acres of land. No record of
this appears in the minutes of the
company. The Union Trust "company owned. 337J shares of the stock
in the Great Western Land company,
and should have reerived its profits, but
it apparently did not. No less a sum,
said Mr. Aylesworth, than $4320 was
handed to the directorate or executive
of that eompanv itself. These men, of
whom Mr. Foster was one, took
84320, which was the money of the
Independent Order of Forresters, and
they continue to hold it. It mav not
lie commission, it is not so called, but
it is, said the minister of justice, wnat
I think if it were from the other side
of the house and were a transaction in
which any one felt there was a political significance, would be called a rake
off and startling instance of graft.
When the minister of justice concluded Mr. Foster had been stripped of
his specious covering.'and stood naked
before the house, exhibited in his true
colors, as a man who charges wrongdoing and had himself been guilty as
proved by the commissioners. Mr.
Aylesworth paraded the various iniquities and breaches of trust, illegal
profits and rake offs that Mr. Foster
had enjoyed while acting as manager
of the funds of the Forresters. He
showed how companies were formed
for the purpose of handling operations
that could thereby be concealed, and
how the profits thus made were diverted by Mr. Foster from their legitimate channel.
No more can Mr. Foster sanctimoniously raise his hands in the house
and accuse men of gaafring. No more
can the hero of illicit commissions
criticize the government and receive
consideration. No longer can the man
who lent trust funds to himself and
made a rake on the side protect thc
public treasury of Canada. For the
future the man who by a royal commission bus been adjudged guilty of
various breaches of trust with regard
to the management of trust funds can
not exert that influence on the public
life of Canada which might be expected of one whoso transactions had been
of a character to provoke commendation rather than censure.

President McGuigan, of
the G.N. R.
George J. Bury, assistant general
manager ot the western division of
the Canadian Pacific railway, and
F. F. Busteed, general superintendent of the Pacific division of the
same line, arrived in the city
about 8 o'clock last night by special
train, being on their annual tour
of inspection. They were met
at the station by the mayor and
other city officials, representatives
of the 20,000 club and citizens tn the
number of about twenty.
Questioned as to the aufhenticity
of the report recently circulated here
that the C.P.R. intended to move
its shops from Eholt to this city,
and ultimately make this a divisional point, they stated that such matters were usually attended to much
better without taking the public
into their confidence. They added,
however, that in any changes that
might be made Grand Forks would
always receive due consideration.
Before leaving this morning the
officials, accompanied a number of
prominent citizens, made a trip of
inspection to the Granby smelter.

last night in their speeial train consisting of live coaches. They were
joined at this point by Chief Engineer Jas. H. Kennedy, of the V., V.

of the C. P. R. officials was attached to the train, and the who!
party left for a tour of inspection

Dhulip Singh, a Hindoo, died in
this city yesterday morning, and the
remains were cremated by the fellow-
countrymen of deceased in the
Ruckle addition yesterday afternoon.
The interesting ceremonies were witnessed by a large crowd of people,
including a good sprinkling of
whites, among the latter being
Health Officer Kingston and Provincial Consiable I, A. Dinsmore.
After the funeral pyre, composed of
dry logs, had been built about three
feet in height, the body, first mioited
with butter and cream and then
wrapped in a white cloth, was placed
in the centre of the ,iile. Then more
logs were placed around and on top
of it, after which the whole muss uas
saturated with coal oil. When the
match was touched to it. it burned
fiercely, and in an incredibly brief
time the ashes of the dead sikh singled with the ashes of the funeral
pyre. The fact that the cremation
was to take place had not been made
public. Had it been more widely
known, it is safe to say the departed
Htndoo would have had the largest
funeral ever held in Grand Forks.
A dispitch from Victoria says
that judgment was given on Wed
nesday in the long fought case of
W. H. Covert and the Eastern
Townships Bank versus Vaughan
and the Granby company, the plaintiffs winning with costs. The case
was tried a year ago in Greenwood,
and involves tbe ownership of valuable water rights, the defendants
claiming them against the prior location ofthe plaintiffs. In the first
trial the defendants won, and thereupon the other side appealed. Chief
Justice Hunter and Messrs. Justices
Martin and Clement have allowed
the appeal. S. S. Taylor and H C.
Hanington appeared tor the plaintiffs and B. P. DaviB and D. Whiteside for the defendants.
