All   Pledges  Made  to  the
Country Faithfully Kept
by the Liberals
Immense Works Undertaken
for the General Good of
the Dominion
Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Ottawa, May 10.—The session has
ended after a little over five months
of work, and a general review of the
situation may not be without interest.
While a great deal of private legislation has been enacted, interest centers around the government measures
in which the new tariff and the labor
disputes bill take precedence. With
respect to the former, the government, after making a tour by commission through the country, and hearing the views of any person or corporation wishing to express, any, got to
work and framed a tariff, which, while
not particularly disturbing the one in
force, made a more equitable distribu
tion through the entire list.
The new feature was the intermediate tariff, which opens the door for
better commercial relations with other
countries when they feel inclined to
approach Canada on the subject. The
British preference, of course, commends itself to all students of political economy, and tends to bind Can
uda and the mother land in closer
bonds of commercial unity and amity,
The labor disputes bill, introduced
by Hon. Mr. Lemieux, minister of
labor, is now undergoing a very severe test as t<i its efficiency, as it is
being applied to the situation existing
among the western coal miners. The
only difficulty experienced so far arises
out of the want of knowledge of its
provisions by the operators and employees. However, as the situation
develops, and the presence on the
ground of the deputy minister of la-
lior makes matters clear, the primnry
difficulties of the situation are rapidly
vanishing, a id the way is open nx up
for the board of conciliation provided
by the act getting to work and settling all the disputes which gave rise
to the present strained relations between employees and employer.
One remarkable fact has been very
obvious during the session, and that is
the great strength of the government,
and the conspicuous ability with which
the affairs of the country have been
managed. This is noticeable as to the
result of departmental work, and also
as to the debating strength of the
Liberals in the house It is more remarkable when contrasted with the
weak and ineli'ectual showing of the
opposition.
The strong man in the opposition
was heretofore supposed to be Mr. Fos
ter, but after being given every opportunity to put himself right with
the house and the country, he signally
failed to do either. Paper1* friendly
to hiin have declared in unmistakable
languugo that his day is done, and as
a power in politics his tune has passed
and gone. He is now openly regarded
as a dead weight to the Conservative
party, and the party organ in Toronto
advices that he dropped for the good
of the cause. ,
To o*ie familiar with tlio work of
the session, the question arises: Is
there any opposition! If so, what are
its functions, what does it accomplish?
Upon many questions it is divided—a
very significant one was the tariff.
Some members wanted free agricultural implements, and the leader of
the opposition with some of his followers wanted a duty placed upon them.
Throughout the session tliere has
been no unity, no oneness of thought,
no standing together on policy—if the
opposition have any policy. There is
no discipline and the party is divided
into factions, and it lias  no objective
point to which it appears to be   heading.
On the subject of provincial rights
the opposition has always alleged that
it assumed a formidable position, and
yet when the provincial premiers
agreed upon extra subsidies and the
Dominion government approved, the
opposition fought bitterly against giv
ing the provinces what they wanted.
In this attitude they were assisted by
Mr. Bourassa, who loses no opportunity to embarrass the government of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. .   *
It was an amusing sight in the
house to hear Mr. Bourassa quoting
from the British North America Act
without understanding its provisions,
and the patient manner in which
Hon. Mr. Aylesworth, minister of
justice, explained the terms of the
constitution to him. This youug man
will get wiser as he grows older.
The opposition found itself in a most
untenable position during the session
The revenue was bounding, imports
and exports were increasing, the country was getting richer and prosperity
increased on every hand.- The government was developing the great natur
al resources of Canada in the interests
of the peoples and there was nothing
with which to find fault, nothing that
could be better done, and no good reason could be advanced why the people
should not continue their support to
the Liberal government which • had
done so much for the advancement of
Canada and the well-being of her
people.
In striking contrast to the factional,
disrupted opposition is the compact,
orderly business-like methods of the
government in the house. Every min
ister ready at a moments notice to
answer every question as to the work
of their respective departments. Hon.
Mr. Fielding, minister of finance and
acting leader of the house, ready, alert
and courteous and always with knowledge of matter in hand, and always
business-like and methodical.
The minister of justice, Hon. Mr.
Aylesworth, ever cool, collected, logical and erudite, approaching difficult
questions with a consciousness of their
gravity and impressing his heaters
with th* weight of the consideration
put forward. After he has spoken
the matter from a gevernment stand
point is finished—there is nothing
more to lie said. He is concise but
exhaustive* he speaks lucidly and comprehensively.
Ot* the other ministers the sain ■ may
be said. The aimless questions of the
opposition are answered by the various ministers of the crown with great
attention to detail, and as often as the
answer comes just so surely does an
imaginary scandal fail tu   materialize.
It would indeed be a marvel if a
government dealing in $100,0i'0,000
a year would escape without sonic
slight wrongdoing on the part of some
person, but the Liberal government ii
fortunate in this regard. Public affairs have been ventilated in committee and have died there. Nothing was
to be found worthy of bringing to the
attention of the house, and the opposi
tion has almost found itself without
anything to do in the scandal way
, The Liberal party redeined its
pledges made in the speech from t ie
throne. A bill dealing with th** in
surance question would have been ill
troduced had time permitted, hut it
will be ready when the house uie'ti
again. The abuses said to exist were
clearly exaniplified in the case of Mr.
Foster. It was shown that he had
improperly handled trust funds to
the prejudice of those who depend
upon insurance for compensation for
the loss of the bread winner. This
will be impossible in the future; the
widows and orphans will find their interests well protected by the govern
ment.
One of the prominent pledges made
by the Liberal putty was that the new
tariff would be a tariff for revenue
without placing any undue burdens
upon the people. The figures for the
last ten months show the receipts from
customs as 844,1^2.292.10. an increase of $fi,;*Jo,2(i7.5'lover the same
period last year. The receipts for the
month of April were from customs
»4,4li8,39.-1.97, as against $3,9 V),-
934.22 in April of last year, a gain for
the month of $527,399.75.
This is only one department of the
government, and the same ratio of increase is evident all down the line.
Under Liberal rule the country is
prospering ill every branch of trade
and commerce.
The flagrant abuse of the election
laws of the country by the Cunserva,
tives, influenced the government to
give serious attention to some needed '
amendments to the law which will
make such practices impossible in the
future. Various resolutions dealing
with this subject have passed the
house,and next session the government
will introduce legislation dealing with
the subject, so that the purity of elections may be guaranteed and tho
franchise preserved to the people.
The revenue from public lands has
jumped from $1 50,000 in Conservative
times to $1,500,000 per annum under
the Liberal administration. This important branch of the public service is
the one against which the opposition
directs most of its attacks, but heretofore such attacks have been productive
of no scandal; the result of ventilating
the work of the department has been
to give to the electors of the country
useful information ubout our western
heritage, and provoke more se't'.ement
in that direction.
The laws relating to survey of the
lands, and better arrangement of the
land act were discussed during the
session, and when the house meets
again legislation in tl.eie directions
will be completed.
Provision was made during the session for the construction of many
miles of the Grand Trunk Pacific railroad. The large revenues of the Dominion are being wisely expended in
developing new transportation lines
and bectering those that already exist.
In a short time now Canada will have
another transcontinental line stretching from ocean to ocean, and the effect
this will have upon the commerce of
the country is beyond calcution.
The great natural shipping ports
will experience the immense impetus
given to trade when the crops from
the weHt and the product of the mines
find their way easily to the sea.
This branch of transportation has not
been neglected. Generous p rovisii n
has been made for the betterment of
the two great shipping ports of Quebec and Montreal. Liberal assistance
by way of loan of government funds
10 b ith points will soon be earning the
reward by completed works and the
aided power to handle and transport
freight quickly and cheaply. The business of the country will acquire an
added stimulous from the completion
of the work now in pio*ress at these
two points.
With the many works going on in
other directions, the government has
not neglected the great arterial water*
way of Canada reaching from the
great lakes to the sea. Ample provision was made during the session to
dredge the channels and deepen the
harbor and approaches to the lake
purts. This is part of a complete
scheme elaborated by the government
years ago, and brought down itl an
order in council which Mr. Borden,
leader ot' the Opposition, characterized
as th.i most alile able state document
that hud ever e- auatcd from a government. Time will see this great enterprise completed.
As Canada grows in impiirtaii.:e,and
villages become towns, and towns
cities, extra accommodation must be
provided for the public business of the
people. The Liberal government,
mindful of this, is constructing wherever requited throughout the Dominion, all necessary public buildings, so
that the affairs of the public may be
conducted without inconvenience. No
I iirtiality is shown in this regard.
Wherever the necessity exists, tliere
the government at on e enters upon
the subject of meeting the wishes of
the people.
In a country such as Canada with
a great coast line, the importance nf
docks is obvious. In this regard the
Liberal administration has been far
more generous than their Conservative
predecessors. To the Liberal govern
ment a community may lie poor, but
this alone is not a reason for refusing
a request for suoh accommodations as
a parental governmenl should afford.
Thu maritime provinces are monumental evidence of the thoughtfulness of
the Liberals in this connection.
Those industries which employ labor and find the eai'lie.i years of their
existence onerous may depend upon a
helping hand to tide them over their
primary difficulties until they are able
to stand alone. The bounties on iron
and steel give the necessary encouragement to enterprises which could
not exist without them.
The future of the Dominion under a
fostering progressive government is
bright, After ten years of office the
Liberals can point with pride to the
accomplishment of all they promised
when in opposition, and the gratitude
and confidence of the people in the administration and its distinguished
head, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, is unabated.
What of the opposition. Little can
be said; a few men in parliament and
a scattered support throughout the
country is all one knows of the Conservative party. This session it never
was weaker or less effective in the
house, and the Liberals never were
stronger or more progressive.
The country is satisfied with the
work of the session, and the work of
the governmsnt as a whole, and the
Liberal party may confidently look to
I the people to give it continued support and many yeai s of power, to direct the destinies of this Canada of
ours, which is only uow on the threshold of its glorious possibilities.

A short adjourned session of the
city council was held in the council
chamber Monday, Mayor Hammar,
Aid. Hardy, Horner, McCallum, Mcintosh and Woodland being present.
The question nf accepting the
new Fourth street bridge was discussed, and laid over till the next
meeting.
The clerk repnrtedcthe assessment
roll completed, and on motion it was
accepted. The council decided to
st rn the 17th d*y of June, nt 3
o'clock in the afternoon, as a court
of revision.
The water contract with the C. P.
R. was discussed for some time.
The mayor thought the price quoted
the company wan none too high,
but no contract, should be entered
into extending beyond the 1st of
September, when the city's contract
with the (iranby coinpany for power
expires.
On motion, the council decided to
purchase 590 feet of fire hose from u
Vancouver firm.
The hi mid of works was authorized
to have the necessary signs placed on
Fourth street bridge.
the mayor stated that numerous
complaints had recently been made
to bim about the pond master not
performing his duties, and he suggested that the present occupant of
the ullice be discharged und a new
mnn appointed. After discussing
the matter for some time, the coun
oil decided to give thc pondmaster
another -SO days' trial.
The mayor has since suspended
Mr. Woodhead for neglect of duty,
and Chief of Police Savage is now
acting as city pondmaster.
Chas. Brown, of the Boundary
Iron Works, made a request fur another transformer at the foundry

Local Lodge Acknowledged the
Best and Strongest in
the Province
Mayor Jeffery Hammar returned
last Saturday from Nelson, where he
attended the 18th annual convention
of the Knights of Pythias Grand
Lodge of British Columbia. He
waB elected grand chancellor of the
grand lodge by acclamation. In
point of years of membership, he
is the youngest grand chancellor in
the entire organization, as he has
only been affiliated with the order
for about seven years. He modestly
attributes his rapid rise to that position by the splendid standing of the
the local lodge, it having been voted
the strongest and best in the domain
of British Columbia by the convention.
As grand channellor, Mr. Hammar will make official visits to all
the lodges in the province during
thc year. His first official act of
this nature will be a visit to Grand
Forks Lodge No. 30 next Tuesday
evening. Among his other doties
will be to visit and encourage weak
lodges, institute new lodges, and
look after thc interests of the order
generally.
Mr. Hammar tpoke very enthusiastically of the work done by the
Grand Forks degree competition
team, saying that tliere was no other
team at the convention that could
approach it. In spite of the fact,
he said, that some of the best trained
members had left the city when the
smelter closed down, thus leaving
the team in a somewhat crippled
condition, they beat the Nelson team
by about ten points. This splendid
victory wns gained 'notwithstanding
the fact that Nelson had Ihe flower
of its lodge tu pick from.
Not much new legislation was enacted by the convention,ns tbe grand
lodge meets again before I he convention o tho supreme lodge of the
order. The work cut out by the convention for the coming year was
that at securing 500 new members
nnd the organization of live new
lodges. British Columbia is recognized ns the strongest and largest
domain in Canada by Ihe supreme
lodge.
Mr. Hammar attributes the rapid
growth of I'ythianism to the fact
that it is comparatively a modern
order, and therefore ils ritual contains all tho best features of tlio
older fraternal societies. At present
the grand total membership ol the
order is about 700,000. There is a
strong probability that the territorial
jurisdiction will in the near future
be extended to England and nil
other English-speaking countries.
The new grand chancellor will attempt to institute a 1). (). K. K.
Temple in this city, and this will be
one of his first official acts. The
Grand Forks knights who took this
degree while in Nelson were W. K.

FRIDAY,  MAY 17,  1907
A report from Ottawa says that
the fiscal period ending March 31st
will he the largest in the history of
Canada. The revenue already reported for this nine months' period
amounts to $67,138,594, and it is
estimated that the final collections
will add two million more. This
will be almost $5,000,000 more than
Hon. W. S. Fielding hoped for
when he made his last budget speech
in November. He estimated the
revenue at -*65,000,000. At the
same time he calculated the expenditure would be $64,500,001), of
which $52,000,000 would be charged
to revenue and $12,500,000 to capital. Returns to date show the ex
penditure on revenue to be $45,000,
000, which will be increased by four
or five millions with the complete
returns, and $12,000,000 expenditure on capital, which will be increased by half a million dollars.
This indicates that the collections
will exceed and the expenditure fall
below the finance minister's expectation. Mr. Fielding hoped for a
surplus of $13,000,000, but indications are that it will be from $16,-
000,000 to $17,000,000, or the largest in the history of Canada. This
means that not only will the expenditure on both revenue and capital
accounts be met, but the net debt
will be reduced by three or four millions.
His Lordship, D. D. Dontenwill,
Bishop of New Westminster, arrived
in the city Saturday afternoon, being accompanied by Rev. Father Bo-
dard, of Greenwood. Sunday morning his lordship said mass at 10
o'clock.and administered the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Roman
Catholic church before high mass,
which was sung by Rev. Father Be-
dard. In tho evening his lordship
preached a very instructive sermon
to a vory large congregation. There
was a good attendance at all the
services.

Within a few weeks Canada will
be in charge of the naval station at
Esquimalt, word having been received in Ottawa from Hon. L. P.
Brodeur, minister of marine, that he
had a conference with Lord Tweed-
mouth, and that the final terms of
transfer had been arranged. When
Canada took over the Halifax station
it was vnderstood that Esquimalt
was to be taken over, but the naval
authorities did not facilitate the
transfer.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The trial of the damage action of
Daniel Campbell against Wall &
Creelman for injuries received in December last while working as top-
man on defendant's piledriver in
this city, was concluded on Wednesday last at the spring assizes in Nelson, Mr. Justice Clement presiding.
After hearing all the evidence and
whnt Messrs. Taylor and Macdonald
to say as counsel in the case, the
judge at once announced his finding. He gave judgment in favor
of the plaintiff Campbell for $4000
and costs ot action under the common law remedy. If an appeal is
taken and the full court finds under
the Employers' Liability Act, then
his lordship fixes the damages at
$•2700 and costs, and if the full
court finds under the Workmen's
Compensation Act, the damages aie
fixed at $10 a week until the sum of
81500 has been received. In addition Campbell is to receive his costs
of the action.

Last summer a local sportsman con-
s ructad a war vessel at his own expense and placed it on Smelter lake as
a protection for thetity against the
hordes of wild ducks that annually
visit this section. This week the vessel broke from its moorings and
went ove1* the smelter dam. As it
rushed past the Yale hotel, one lone
gunner was seeu clinging desperately
to the skys'l yaids with one hand,
while with the other he called loudly
ior help, as the hero does in modern
fiction. The city is now at the
mercy of the feathery invaders.
It is reported that a Vancover syndicate is negotiating for the purchase
of the Golden Eagle property, which
adjoins the Pathfinder mine. This
jroperty was a shipper in former
days, but the high cost of transporting ore by team necessitated a discon
tinuance. The mine is owned by a
couple of Englishmen, who iack the
necessary capital to develop it on a
large scale.
The baseball game at the driving
park last Sunday between the Grand
Forks and Danville clubs resulted in a
score of 12 to 9 *n favor of the home
team. There was a big crowd of
enthusiasts present.
Walter Baron, driver of Waugh
Bros, delivery wagon, hail a narrow
escape from drowning in the North
Fork Saturday morning. While
water his horse, the animal got beyond
its depth, and the swift current carried
him down the stream, taking the rig
and driver along. Luckily for young
Baron, a lumber jack named Duffy
happened to be close to the scene of
the accident, and he jumped in and
rescued the boy, while the horse and
rig continued their journey iu the direction of Cascade*. At the time of
going to press they had not been recovered.
A decision in the long drawn out
case of Genelle vs. Genelle was rendered by Mr. Justice Clement at the
assizes in Nelson on Monday last.
As is well known, Joseph Genelle
claimed from his brother Peter one-
half pf the lutter's interest in the Yale-
Columbia Lumber company, valued at
$37,000, setting up a verbal agreement. The learned judge held that no
such agreement had been made out by
the plaintiff by his own showing. The
action was dismissed with costs.
Duncan ltoss, M.P. for Yale-Cariboo, passed through the city on Tuesday, being en route from Ottawa tp
his homo in Greenwood.
The carpenter, force and a number
of the mechanics at the Granby
smelter returned to work last Monday, and- at present there are about
40 men employed around the works.

and Nelson Teams in
Latter City
Boundary Boys Played Well
Individually but Lacked
Practice
The Nelson News gives the following report of the NelBon-Gratid
ForkB lacrosse match, played in the
former city on Tuesday:
The visitors made a gallant struggle during the first half, but they
were clearly overmatched and had
luck against them as well. Individually some of the visitors played
brilliantly, but in team work and
particularly in goal they were weak
and in urgent need of steady practice. Easily the busiest man among
the visitors was Mike Clunis, an old
Nelson player. McQueen, Henderson and Hood all put up good lacrosse and worked bard to retrieve
the fortunes of the day.
McBeath of the Nelson team was

play during the first half, and Harrigan of the visitois was given a rest

reason.
His worship Mayor Gillett faced
the ball at 3:25; C. D. Blackwood
was referee during the first half and
G. P. Wells during the second half.
R. Curran "ind J. H. Fox were time
keepers and C. Hipperson and R,
Henderson {jonl umpires.
During the first quarter Nelson
had the best of it, and Bell and
Jamieson each secured a goal, while
the visitors failed to score.
In the second quarter the fate of
match was settled, Nelson securing
six more goals and the visitors one,
making the score at half time 8 1 in
favor of Nelson. Henderson scored
for the visitors, and Bell, Jamieson,
A. and H. Bishop for Nelson.
During the second half the inter
est fell off; some excellent passing
and checking was done, but the
home team scored at will, leaving
the final score 15-3 in Nelson's favor. Kirk and Spinks scored the
two additional goals for the visitors.
The end ef the match was more or
less of a practice affair, neither side
exerting themselves very much.
The weather was perfect, a warm,

TOPICS OF THE TOWN
Steel on the Kettle Valley line has
been laid as far as the bridge, twelve
miles up the North Forth, where a
halt will be made Tor a short time
until that structure is completed.
Cross-sectioning is now in progress
on the right of way above Lynch
creek, and grading operations will
be started there in a few days.
The hotel men of the city held a
meeting Wednesday evening, and
while no definite action was taken,
the feeling appeared to be unanimous
that, owing to tbe rapid rise of pro
visions, a raise of from 10 to 15 per
ger cent in the price of board would
be imperative on the first on the
month.
G. L. Woodard, the Kettle Valley
line tie contractor, returned yesterday from a trip to his camps on
the American side of the line.
During the month of April the
two furnaces of the B. C. Copper
company's smelter made an average
of treating 662.7 tons each per every
24 hours, the month's total being a
new record for this smelter—34,239
tons of ore. Besides this, 212 tons
of matte were smelted.
Work has been started on the
properties, in Deadwood camp, of
the newly organized Sudbury Mining company.
John R Greenfield, of Vanoouver,
postoffice inspector for British Columbia, arrived in the city yesterday
on an official visit.
The force at the Skylark mine haB
been cut down to three men. This
reduction wns necessitated on account of the inability of the mine to
ship the ore already hoisted.
Page Boyle, who lias been doing
diamond drilling in tbe Boundary
for the past two and one-half years,
is at present working on the Elkhorn mine.
Only one drill was in operation at
the Granby mines last week.
The new electric air compressor,
ordered by the Dominion Copper
company for the Sunset mine,
Deadwood camp, has arrived in the
Boundary.
The work of ballasting the |Kettle
Valley line track through the city
was started this morning.
There are about 250 men employed by the Great Northern and
C.P.R. on construction work in and
around Phoenix.
There was a report in circulation
last night that the miners in Phoi-
nix had returned to work, but very
little credance is placed in the story.
It has been suggested to The Sun
that the 20,000 club nrrange for a
complimentary entertainment in
honor of our school teacher.
VVh n a bunch of young men nnd
Indies go flailing, it is difficult to tell
whether they are angling for wives
and husbands or trout.
A Boundary newspaper man, who
at times exhibits the same traits ns
the fabled liy that rode on the wagon
hub and imagined that he wat responsible for the dust that arose
around the vehicle, takes a sorts of
fatherly interest in the rest of the
fraternity in this district by telling
them he is afraid tliey will never
get paid for certain advertisements.
The gratuitous advice is, we feel certain, thankfully received by the
novices at the business. But we are
nfniiil the man is devoting too much
tune to other peoples' affairs, thereby
neglecting his own business interests,
as we notice that during the past two
or three months he hns forgotten to
"lift" a few columns of "dead"
le'iils.
The Canadian Pacific railway is
putting on a new tri-weekly transcontinental train to make the run
from Montreal to Vancouver twelve
hours faster than the present express. The new train will cover the
2904 miles in less than 58 hours.
There is said to be a woman in this
city who is so modest that she blushes
when nndressed kid gloves are mentioned.
On the 1st of May they were still
playing hockey back in Quebec, and
were expecting to have a May-pole on
the St. John river in Fredericton.
Many Children Sick
Get their feet wet, catch cold or
cramps, and give mothers an anxious
time. With the first shiver or sneeze
rub the little one's chest with Nerviline, gargle the throat, and give ten
drops in hot -vater at bed-time. Next
morning all is well. No cold, no time
lost at school. If Poison's Nerviline
isn't in your home get it there at
once. Dealers sell it in large 20c bottles.
