With Great Expenditure for
Public Works, Liberals
Can Show Gains
Government Doing Its Part
Towards Developing Our
A government that has been in
power eleven years, and is stronger in
its personnel, and more deeply routed
in the confidence of the public after
the expiration of such a term, must
have gained its enviable position by
an unbroken line of pledges faithfully kept.
ThiB is the position of the Liberal
government today. When the nffairs
of the country, which for years previously had baen bo mismanaged by
the Conservatives that business was at
a standstill, emigration had practically
ceased, and tne population, for some
cause never satisfactorily explained,
was dwindling, or at the best remaining stationary, the Liberals were
called upon to administer the affairs
of the country.
Previous to 1896 a number of scan
dalous transactions bad been unearthed and exposed to light, it had
been fonnd that publio money had
been squandered without adequate return. Men in power had used their
office and influence in directions calculated to bring advantage to themselves, and in their public transaction's
had not cousulted the welfare of the
people. Public interest had been
scandalously neglected for private
gain, and even the Conservative cabinet was ho divided against itself that
leader of the then government described his own colleagues as a -'lieit
iif traitors."
Under these circumstances there
could be but one result, and that distinctly unfavorable and to the prejudice of the people generally.
After the clean sweep made in 1896
by the Liberals under the distinguished leadership of that great Canadian, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, conditions
changed as if by magic. He called to
his councils the best men the country
produced, and from that time to the
present prosperity has reigned where
distress previously abounded; deficits
were turned into surpluses, the business of the country became vitalized,
industrial affairs provided work for
the artisan and laborer, and peaie and
contentment succeeded dissatisfaction
und unrest.
Such results could only be achieved
by honest, economical management of
public affairs, coupled with an intelligent public policy, wisely administered. That the people of Canada
appreciated this was demonstrated
very forcibly at the general elections
of 1900 and 1906, when the Liberals,
with their record of trust faithfully
kept, were before the people asking for
a renewal of public confidence. The
overwhelming majorities given to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's government on those
t.vo occasions are matters of history.
The Liberals during their first year
of oflice suoceeded to a Conservative
deficit of $519,981, but the next year
all this had changed, and from 1896
to date the Liberal administration of
public affairs has resulted in the following substantial surpluses:
1897-8 $ 1,722,712
1898-9  4,837,749
1899-1900  8,054,714:        	
19001  5,648,333 „
1901-2    7,291,398 Complaints About Stray Cat*
1902-3  14,345,166
1903-4..  15,056,984;
1904-5    7,763,089
1905-6...*.  12,898,719
1906-7  15,5U0,0OO
Total £93,218,864
This satisfactory condition of affairs
can only be accounted for by intelligent and honest management of the
country's business. It supplies in
addition the best possible evidence of
the prosperous condition of the commercial affairs of the Dominion.
If material advancement may be
guaged by revenue, surely this item in
the economic affairs of the Dominion
deserves attention, showing as it does
an immense increase since the Liberals
assumed oflice. In the years 1889-90
the revenue was £39,879,924 under a
Conservative government, It fell to
{36,618,590 in 1895-6, also under a
Conseivative government. What hap
pened since the Liberals assumed con*
trol in 1896, From that date to the
present the revenue of Canada was as
1396-7 $37,829,778
1897-8.....  40,555,238
1898-9  46,741,249
1899-1900  51,029,994
1900-1  52,515,701
1901-2  58,050,790
1902*3  65,037,068
1903-4  70,669,816
1904-6  71,182,772
1906-6  80139,360
What better or more convincing argument of good gevernment could be
produced than this) It will be seen
that the revenue actually decreased
under a Conservative administration,
but since the Liberals came into power in no single year since 1896 have
the revenues decreased, but have al
ways increased until the total revenues
have grown from $37,829,778 in
1896-7 to $80,139,360 in 1905.6. A
most creditable and satisfactory circumstance.
It has been falsely alleged that the
Liberals have increased taxation,
whereas the fact is that the rate of
taxation has been lowered. In 1890
the public debt was $258,496,432, in
1907 it is only about $260,000,000.
A very small increase, represented by
expenditure on capitel account, while
the debt per capita is largely decreased. In 1896 it was $50.61 per
capita, now it is only $40.20, as the
following table shows:
Population. Net Debt. Capita
1895...5,054,285 $258,074,927 50.07
1896...5,107,918 258,497,422 50.61

Canada's trade has increased in pro-
poi tion to an extent greater than that
of any other country. The development of financial and material resources has made rapid strides since
the Liberals came into power. The
following trade statistics will be interesting proof of this:
1896—Total exports of
Canada $113,000,000
Today—Total exports of
Canada „.  256,000,000

tie—New  Poundmaster
College Street Closing Bylaw
Passes the Third Reading Stage
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chamber Monday evening, Mayor
Hammar, Aid. Hardy, Horner, Mcintosh and Woodland being in attendance.
A letter from Cooper Bros, was
read, protesting against W, H. Fisher's barn being placed in an alleyway.
On motion of Aid. Horner and Mc
Intosh, Mr. Fisher was instructed to
have the same removed at once.
A letter from Engineer Gamble to
Robert Mcintosh was read. Mr.
Gamble stated that the government
could not incur the expense of having
the Fourth street bridge painted, as
no appropriation had been made for
this purpose.
A communication from the secretary
of the League of Canadian Munici
palities informed the council that any
changes it might wish to suggest to the
Municipal Clauses. Act should be in
the hands of the secretary before the
1st of September, as the annual meeting of the league would be held on
that date. The communication was
filed for future reference.
The finance committee recommended the payment of the usual number
of accounts, and on motion the report
was accepted and the bills ordered
Walter Hadden complained to the
council because stray cattle were ruining the trees in the West end. It was
a shame, he said, to have trees that
people had watered and cared for
three years destroyed. The people of
the city appeared to be going into the
cattle raising business.
Aid. Woodland asked if the pound-
master was not doing his duty.
Mr. Woudliead replied that the city
had cut off his other work, and lie did
not want to act as ponndmaster alone.
The mayor said that Mr. Wood-
head's work, both as poundmaster and
for the city, had been veiy unsatisfactory of late, and the best thing the
council could do would be to appoint a
new poundinaster. He was gitting
tired of people coining to him and complaining about stray cattle destroying
trees and shrubbery.
Woodhead said he had shown no
favoritism in the past, and he would
show none in the future; but he would
not act as poundmaster unless he -was
given other work by the city. He
wanted a salary of $50 a month to act
as poundkeeper alone.
The mayor reiterated his statement
that Mr. Woodhead's work had been
unsatisfactory, and that it was time to
appoints new man.
Aid. Woodiand said he had favored
Woodhead at the last meeting because
he had thought he wanted to do the
work. However, he did not think
the poundmaster had done quite right
in quitting work before resigning to
the council.
On   motion  of Aid.   Horner and
Hardy, Mr. Benson was appointed
Walter Hadden Informed the council that portions of the sidewalk on
Government is in a dangerous condition. The mayor stated that the city
was waiting for five carloads of lumber at peesent. When that arrived the
work of sidewalk repairing would be
The mayor reported that he had received some complaints about the city
employing two policemen. Both he
and the aldermen expressed the opinr
ion that as long as the two men are
kept on the force more attention should
be given tu keeping the tire hall clean,
testing hydrants and flushing out
"dead ends" of the waterworks system.
The council then went into committee of the whole for the consideration or the College street closing bylaw, which was adopted in committee
and then read a third time.
The council then adjourned.
Labor Question in Boundary
Locally there is no change in the
labor question. The Grand Forks
union held two meetings during tbe
present week. At tbe last one the
scale of wages submitted by the
mine and smelter managers of tbe
district was rejected. Under these
circumstances, there is no telling
when operations will be resumed at
the Granby smeller, although coke
is now arriving regularly.
On Tuesday Phoenix Miners'
union held a special meeting to consider a propo i ion regarding an increase of wages from the managers
of the several large copper mines io
the Boundary. The evening before
tbe managers met with committees
from tbe Grand Forks, Phoenix and
Greenwood unions, and submitted
the pro; os ils, w i ih called for an increase of 25 cents per day to the
miners and muckers and a score of
other classes, but did not specify an
increase for some other classes. The
unions bave deciled not to accept
this proposition. At tbe meeting
were present, besides the committees from the three unions, A. B. W.
Hodges, local manager ot the Granby company; O. B. Smith, superintendent of tbe Granby mines; W. C.
Thomas, manager of the Dominion
Copper company; J. E. McAllister,
manager, and Frederic Keffer, engineer, for the British Columbia Copper company; R. H. Stewart, general superintendent for the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada; Charles Biesel, local superintendent at tbe Sncwsboe
for the same coinpany.
Some weeks ago the members o
Phoenix union asked for a raise of
50 cents a day all around, to take effect May 1, and later the Greenwood
union asked for the same thing, to
take effect June 1. The Grand Forks
union also asked for a raise to the
scale which prevailed under the
twelve-hour day.
Droves of cattle are running at
large in the West end, and householders are complaining bitterly because of the damage they are doing
to trees and gardens. The new
poundmaster should visit that section; and, if he can't get rid of them
in no other way, he might ship
them to Chicago and have them converted into canned beef. People
who want to raise stock should buy
enough land to feed them on.

internal injuries. He was unconscious on his arrival here. Dr. Kingston dressed the patient's wounds,
and at present his condition is regarded as avorable for ultimate recovery.

The annual freshet has come and
gone, the only damage done in this
immediate vicinity by the turbulent
waters being confined to the washing out of a condemned wagon
But although we have escsped
without loss of life or serious damage to property, there are a number
of hair-breadtb escapes from drowning to record.
Tbe magnet of attraction all week
bas been tbe First street bridge,
which was partially washed out at
11:30 Wednesday forenoon. A huge
log jam, as high as the bridge itself,
has been resting against the centre
pier since Sunday, and was still
there last night.
Monday morning a long tree
lodged between two of the piers, entirely blocking the channel. Jack
Hutchinson, the wood dealer, got an
axe and went out on the tree to chop
it in two. He had scarcely given it
half a dozen strokes with the axe,
however, when the swift current
snapped it, hurling him into the
icy cold stream. In falling he luckily caught hold of some driftwood,
and this kept him afloat until rescued some distance down the river
by Joe Schnavely, who went to the
man's assistance in a rowboat. In
floating down the stream, Hutchinson made several futile attempts to
catch hold of limbs of trees on the
opposite bank. When rescued be
was benumbed with cold and just
about ready to give up the fight for
After tbis incident nothing of a
startling nature occurred until 11:30
Wednesday forenoon. The jam was
there all the time, 'tis true; but the
lumber jacks worked valiantly to reduce its size. At that hour, however, a number of citizens thought
the workmen were not making satisfactory progress, and they went
out to offer their advice regarding the best method of freeing the
logs. The weight of their opinion
was too much for the old structure,
which had been condemned over n
year ago, and the span next the opposite bank went down. Most of
the peopled scrambled to dry land,
as tbey wanted to live to talk another day. But Dune Munro and
J. Mauley, the painter, heroically
stayed with the section that went
down. A laborer also started to go
down, but he concluded the bridge
was taking too much time in reaching the water, mid so he jiun.ied
overboard and waded to shore.
Dune and Man ley sailed down the
river a short distance, nnd then
threw out the starboard anchor and
waited for Ml, Schnavely's yawl.
They were very reluctant to give up
the old bridge, but they suffered
such untold agonies from seasickness that they had no other alternative.
W. J. Mclntyre left yesterday for
a short visit to Nelson.

Mr. Fielding, when presenting his
last budget speech, made some allusions to the tariff changes that had
been made and were proposed, among
other things he said: "Just how far
tariff legislation has a bearing on the
growth and progress of the country,
always has been, and always will be,
a subject of differences of opinion. But
so far as we may admit that a tariff
policy of a country may have any effect on its progress and prosperity, I
think all will frankly acknowledge
that the tariff af 1897 has been a
most successful one. Our idea has
been to encourage a large degree of
tariff stability, not a slavish adherence to every item in the tariff, but we
have been desirous that the impn s-
sion should go abroad that the government were not willing to make changes
hastily, that they were rather slow to
do anything in that line, and only
when a case became of extreme urgency would we undertake to make
changes. In the second revisk n of the
tariff its stability was kept in mind."
The intermediate tariff lias been so
arranged that if a foreign nation
wishes to trade with Canada, and is
willing to reduce its duties on certain
Canodian articles in return for a like
concession from Canada for its goods,
the intermediate tariff will enable this
to be brought about for a term of
years. It is simply an inducement
coupled with an invitation to other
nations, that if they desire to enter
into negotiation with Canada they may
secure the advantages of the intermediate tariff by giving compensating

have been enlarged. With greater revenues came greater burdens, inseparable from a fast growing country. The
government has not been unmindful
of this fact.
In order that Canadians may reap
the greatest benefit from the material
advancement and prosperity of the
country at large, and avail themselves
of their natural advantages and opportunities, the government has entered
upon great public works in the general interest. Railways have been assisted, wharfs built, canals deepened,
harbors dredged, public buildings
erected, all of them for the genoral
advantage of the people and to meet
the requirements of expanding trade.
Public money has been wisely expended in this regard. Not to enrich
the few, but in such manner that all
the people benefited. This is the surest
test of honest and wise administration,
that public money is expended in the
public interest and for the general
The government with all its many
problems in the older part of Canada,
is not unmindful of the West. The administration realizes that the people of
the West having been invited to settle
in and cultivate that important tcrri*
tory, are entitled to facilities whereby
easy access to a shipping port may be
secured, without being compelled to
surrender an undue proportion of the
results of their industry in payment
of exhorbitant freight charges.
To this end the building of the
Grand Trunk Pacific is being pushed
to completion with all possible speed.
Everything that a paternal government could do to fui ther the enterprise has been done in response to the
mandate of the people, expressed in
the general election of 1904.
The government realizes that the
advantages gained through the efforts
of the immigration department with
their accompanying vast expenditure
of money, must not be ma le nugatory
by failure to provide transportation
The government of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier is keenly sensible of Canada's
great western heritage, with its vast
natural resources, its inexhaustible
vitality, its great wheat areas, its
teeming acres of grazing lands, the industrial and commercial genius of its
enterprising and aggressive people.
The government is mindful of these
considerations, and in the furtherance
of its duty to the people of the West,
the government realizes its duty, and
appreciates that these people should
not, by failure on its part, be compelled to full short of realization to
the fullest possible extent uf their obvious destiny.
It is a principle of political economy
that the legitimate demands of commerce for an outlet at the point of
least resistance, cannot be long delayed, and never ultimately frustrated.
If the products of the West can be
brought 1000 miles nearer a European
market via Hudson Bay, then that
point becomes de facto the nutura
outlet. The government is giving
favorable consideration to this plan,
and moro will be heard of it next ses
The Dominion, is of great extent,
and the needs from various points art*
diversified. To solve the various pruli
Icum presented and meet the desires
of the people from the Atlantic to the
Pacilic is the object nf the present
government, The controlling iaea of
the Liberal governrnei t lias alway
bi'en to do justice to all parts of the
Dominion. This presents m.iny perplexing problems, all nf which musi
be solved from day to day.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier i* fortunate in
having in his council the best men
that Canada has produced, Every
great department is in charge nf a
man who has the confidence of the
province from which he comes, and
all aro experienced in deparmental affairs, f Men of probity, of known in
tegrity of charuct**r muy he trusted to
deal honest I v with the affairs entrust
ed to them, and in the hands of such
men has the premier committed the
affairs oi the people.
Canada is yet in her infancy. In
years to come the result of wise administration during these growing
days wil) be apparent. The things
done now will bear fruit in the future,
and for that reason the Liberal government, strong in the possession of
the people's confidence, will continue
to administer public affairs equitably,
wisely, and most important of all,
honestly following upon the record of
the past eleven years, the best Canada
ever knew.
