Sir Wilfrid Laurier Vindicates
the Dignity of Parliament
Anxious to Investigate Direct
Charges, but Will Ignore
Street Gossip
Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Ottawa, April 6.—For weeks past
both political parties and the country
generally have been disturbed by certain undefined allegations attributed
to Geo. W. Fowler, member for King's,
New Brunswick. It has been said of
him that he had made charges against
members ef the government and members of the house which seriously reflected upon their honor. The Conservative press, anxious to make party
capital, exaggerated the incident, and
made it appear tbat what amounted
merely to suggestion or insinuation,
was in reality a direct accusation.
In the heat of the debate Mr. Fowler had employed the words wine,
women and graft, but that gentleman,
although impulsive, impetuous and aggressive, was courageous enough to
approach the verge of accusation, but
had good sense and sound discretion
to retain his self-control, and not assume a position which might become
untenable. However, everything left
unsaid and undone by Mr. Fowler was
promptly supplied by the opposition
press throughout the conntry, and the
result has been a'period of unrest and
uncertainty as to the exact details of
the incident.
At this juncture there obtrudes himself into the arena one Henry Bourassa, member for Lalielle, who recognizes in the incident an opportunity to
pose before the people us a purist of
the "holier than thou" type, Thii
bombastic, self-constituted ceiiH.ii* of
Canadian public life acclaims ■ himself
the custodian of the public conscience,
and assumes a divine right to purify
the political atmosphere.
This spectacular political opportunist announce I his intention of bringing the Fowler incident before the
house, and on Tuesday he was given
an opportunity by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. In his opening observations he
"I wish to say that the motive
which impels mo to bring this matter
again before the house is one which I
think will commend itself to my colleagues. I may, perhaps he able to
claim that I have some advantage in
presenting this matter, inasmuch as
the future and fate of either political
party, as at present conssituted, is utterly indifferrnt to ine."
Here is an alleged Liberal openly
stating that even if his action involves
t .iu destruction of the Liberal party, to
which he says he belongs, he is indif
ferent. The house received this statement with manifestations of disapproval, but when the gentleman proceeded to say that a saw-off had been arranged between Mr. Fowler and Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, disapproval expressed
itself in vigorous groans and hisses.
Mr. Bourassa expressed his great
• uxiety that, certain members of the
•House should prefer charges against
certain other members.   Speaking of
himself, he said he might be asked the
question, "Why do you not make the
charge yourself) Why do you not take
the risk!"   His reply to this was:
"I am not going to give to the government or to the opposition a chance
of making me the scapegoat in this
This confession was received by
both sides of the house with jeers and
cries of "Oh, oh."
Continuing, he said he had heard
rumors of wrongdoing on the part of
members of the house. He had heard
this on the street and in the corridors
of the house, but personally he did not
possess any information on the subject.
This was a strange statement for him
to make, for only a few weeks ago he
uttered a grave insinuation against the
honor of a publio man who was not in
his seat at the time. Thus it was that
this purveyor of rumor—this scandal
monger—this valiant assailant of absentees, invited honorable members of
of the house to blacken the reputations of colleagues without evidence,
without cause, without justificalion,
for the sole and only reason that he
might destroy the party to which he
has proved a traitor, and to humiliate
the great head ot that party—Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, and feed his own insatiable appetite for notoriety.
"If I had a tittle of evidence in my
possession I would make a charge,"
said this isolated exponent of public
virtue, but this did not prevent the
misguided youth from suggesting that
others, who possessed no more information than himself, should assail the
honor and integrity of the prominent
Mr. Bourassa, who may fittingly be
described as a self-conscious iconoclast, concluded a rambling disertation
by moving an amendment, asking for
a committee of the house with roving
powers to wield a muck rake, and con
duct an inquisition into the priyate affairs of every member of the house.
When Sir Wilfrid Laurier arose to
reply the house was crowded. Every
member was in his place, and standing
room only was available in the galleries. Lady Laurier was present with
a number of guests in the speaker^
gallery. The lit. Hon. gentleman in
a masterly speech exhibited all his old-
time fire and vigor. As his biting
sarcasm and relentless logic stripped
the mantel of egotism from the member for Labelle, that gentleman sank
lower and lower into his seat, until
his attenuated form was scarcely visible.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier described (he
resolution as the most remarkable he
had ever seen in a long parliamentary
career, and as he proceeded to dissect
the speech of Mr. Bourasta, and expose its malignant motive, its ill-concealed menace to the party, its obvious insincerity, its evident bid for notoriety, he was endorsed by ringing
applause from all parts of the house.
When the Rt. Hon. gentleman paid a
tribute to the personal character of
members of the house, he employed
these eloquent terms:
"I can only say to my honorable
friend from Labelle that every man in
this house is an honest man, that every
man in this house has the right to
walk with his head erect, that every
man in this house has the right to his
character until the character has lieen
taken from him, not by insinuation,
not by the tittle-tattle of the street,
but upon a charge made by some one
who has the courage to make such a
charge. It will not do to say there

Harry Clancy, a young unmarried man employed at the Granby
smeltar, was severely burned last
Monday afternoon while endeavoring to straighten a slag pot. Instead
of succeeding in righting the vessel,
it tipped still further to one side,
throwing a large quantity of tbe
molten mass over the workman.
His hands, back, legs and other
parts of the body were badly burned.
The hands were so severely injured
that the skin and flesh peeled off to
the bone, and the other burns were
nearly as painful.
The unfortuate man was at once
removed to the Cottage hospital,
where Dr. Newcombe, of Midway,
who has charge of Dr. Kingston's
practice during the latter's absence
from the city, dressed the wounds
and employed every means known
to medical science to alleviate bis

FRIDAY,  APRIL 12,  1907
The labor situation in the Southeast Kootenay coal fields haB not
changed materially since the last
issue of The Sun. The points in
dispute are being investigated. It
hoped tbat an amicable settlement
will be arrived at. In reply to a
telegram from tbe Nelson News,
asking for some explanation of the
government's alledged refusal to
prosecute the Canada West Coal
company for breach of the Industrial Disputes Act, Hon. Rndolphe
Lemieux, minister of labor, made
following statement: "The procedure for enforcement oT the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act as
set forth in the Act is that prescribed
by part 15 of thc criminal code, revised statutes of Canada. If the Act
has been violated at Taber by the
company declaring a lockout contrary to ite provisions, it is open to
any one to lay an information before a justice of the peace and have
penalties imposed. Similarly, if the
Act were violated by workmen going
on a strike contrary to its provisions,
any person would be free to lay an
information and ha«e penalties imposed. The Act in this respect is
enforceable like other statutes
where similar procedure is prescribed. The Act does not contemplate that the government should
lay informations. Tbe minister of
labor is obliged to appoint a board
of conciliation and investigation in
connection with any dispute when
required to do so in accordance with
the terms of the Act. Both parties
at Taber have been so informed, but
no application for the appointmenl
of a board has been as yet received."
The miners at Taber have gone
back to work pending a settlement
before the government board of conciliation. The management claims
that tbe agreement to concede an
eight-hour day beginning April 1st
was dependent on Lethbridge being
brought to the same condition. In
the meantime the men are working
eight hours at the face.
The district board of District No.
18, U. M. W. of A., in session at
Pernio last Saturday, decided to
submit the question of striking for
better wages and working conditions to a referendum vote of the
different locals, the results to bo reported to the district president not
later than Saturday, the 13th inst.

are rumors, but since when undor
British institutions have rumors been
the subject of investigations. If there
are rumors against one or any of my
colleagues, it is open to any man to
take up these rumors and to bring
them forward in the shapo of a charge,
which 1 can meet, to which I can (oppose my denial, or in regard to which
tion, which was of a roving nature,
levelled against no person, naming no
charge, disclosing no offence, and as
the premier well stated, is levelled at
214 members of the house of common^.
Speaking on the subject of the committee of enquiry asked for by Mr.
Bourassa, Sir Wilfrid dissected tlio
resolution and literally toro it to
shreds. Said he: "Let us appoint a
committee to investigate, and who is
to be the accuser? Let this committee bo granted, and wluit shall be the
evidence? This committee would be it
committeo of enquiry at random, to be
disposed of nobody knows how, to be
guided by nobody knows whom, and
to come to a conclusion nobody knows
At this point in his speech the
prime minister faced Mi. Bourassa,
and pointing his finger at him, proceeded to administer a verbal castiga-
tion which that young man will not
easily forget. The Rt. Hon. gentleman reminded the house how difficult
it was to deal in rumors that Mr. Bourassa had repeated gossip'and street
talk affecting the honor of ministers
of the crown, but had also said that
he had no proof or he would bring it
forward. With fiery eloquence and
perfect diction the prime minister continued:
"All I have to say to my honorable
friend is, if he has not the proof, why
does he mention it at all? The rumors
which have been floating in Hie air at
last fell into the gutter, and the honorable gentleman gropes in the gutter
and brings these rumors into the
This brilliant passage was received
with tumultuous cheers by the supporters of the government, and as the
first minister contined to ask, whether
't was to investigate charges of that
kind that the committee was required,
the applause was again and again renewed.
The prime minister apain asserted
that any charge brought against any
member of the cabinet or any member
of the house affecting the public standing of any member would be given the
fullest investigation, but that the
house of common') would not deal in
rumors nor unsubstantial insinuations.
Sir Wilfrid concluded a brilliant
speech in these words:
'If the honorable member for Labelle or any one else has charges to
make against myself or against any of
my colleagues he is welcome to make
them. Let him do it in parliamentary
manner, let him formlate his charges
and an investigation shall take place
immediately. Let him substantiate
anything that he has iu his mind and
that he thinks ought to be investigated, and tomorrow the investigation
shall be granted. But, sir, I protest
in the name of parliamentary life, in
the name of parliamentary dignity,
against tho speech that was made this
afternoon by the member for Labelle.
Public life has its duties and its re
spoiisibilitii's, and it has perhaps more
to suffer than to enjoy, but after all
there is one thing which we should, on
one side of the house or the other,
always endeavor to maintain, that is
to say, that in our daily conflicts we
should fight fair and square, and never
strike below the belt."
As the Rt. Hon. gentleman resumed
his seat amid cheering that could' be
heard far beyond tho precincts of the
house, the member for Labelle, his
vanity hurt, his pride lowered, his
prestige lessened, quetly withdrew
from the chamber, and that unsubstantial myth known as the "Fowler
charges" was consigned to oblivion.
At a time when the opposition press
is charging lax methods in the handling of the public moneys and ■•raft in
connection with departmental affairs,
it is interesting to review the latest
case brought before the public ac
counts committee of the house.
It appears that as an incident to the
building of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway certain bonds are  guaranteed
proceeds of these bonds stands to the
credit of the minister of finance to be
paid out for construction purposes in
the proportion of 75 per cent to the
work done. The amount to* be (paid
from time to time by the government,
which practically occupies the position
of trustee for the bondholders, is arrived at by a system of certificates and
audit, given and made by officials connected with tho  railway department.
Many millions of dollars have been
paid out of this fund by the finance
department in accordance with the
terms of the trust, but heretofore
without any suggestion of wrongdoing.
Recently it was represented to the
government that the proper proportion
of approximately $900,000 was payable, and n statement and vouchers for
the amount was sent in. Upon examination of the Items, the railway
department auditor found certain
suinsjincluded which he4did not think
came within the definition of construe
tion expenses, and he declined to certify such sums, amounting to $162,-
} -It must he remembered that the
money held by the government is
practically the property of thefGrand
Trunk Pacific, and the bills presented
to the government for payment out of
the moneys held in trust, were properly payable'by the crr-pany, tho only
question being whether they were
chargeable to the particular account
mentioned in the trust.
However this may be, the accounts
were not certified by the auditor although the consulting engineer of the
government held the view that they
were properly due and payable. The
matter was thereupon referred to the
finance minister, who decided that the
auditor was right, and he declined to
pay the amount, and the amount was
not paid. The company did not press
the matter, but withdrew the accounts
that had been erroneously sent in, and
substituted amended ones.
The opposition,, finding that an account had been presented to the government and not paid, promptly suspected something was wrong, instead
of recognizing that the finance department, ever alert to detect any improper demand upon it, had acted in a
very businesslike and most commendable manner. It must not be forgot
ten that even had the money been paid
it would only have been a case of
charging to the wrong acount money
that wa*i justly payable by the Grand
Trunk Pacific.
For several days the public accounts
committee was engaged in probing this
affair,  and it  was   afterwards taken
into the house and   much  time   was

wasted in a discussion that could accomplish no useful purpose.
The statement presented to tho
house by Hon. Mr. Emmerson, minister of railways, will be heartily welcomed by the people at large, and reflects great credit upon the minister,
who has the pleasure of announcing to
the country a surplus exceeding $100,-
000 after paymens of all expenses.
Mr. Emmerson accentuated tne fact
that the Intercolonial railway was a
national one in objects and character,
and upon it freight rates were the
lowest in the world.
The minister alluded to tho conditions under which he hud changed a
deficit into a surplus, and attached
much weight to the fact that in the
face of higher cost for everything the
toad had used, the expenses hod been
kept at a point by good management
which hod resulted so creditably to
the department. He stated that he
might have charged the people more
for carrying freight and thus earned a
larger surplus, but he preferred to
leave the surplus over and above the
cost of opeiating the rood where it
properly belonged, in the pockets of
the people.
The report of the insurancecommis-
sioners came up for discussion in the
house on Tuesday, and those who had
any observations to make confined
themselves to quotations from the report, which dealt with the relations of
Geo. E. Foster to the companies with
which he had been identified. The
allegations against Mr. Foster clustered around the verdict of the commissioners tnat he had, as manager of
a truat fund, caused the company to
make an investment in which he himself participated and shared in the
profits. It was also disclosed by the
report that Mr. Foster had received
payment by way of commission upon
transactions in which his company
was interested.
It was pointed out in this connection that he had not only lent money
to syndicates in which he was financially interested, but necessarily sat at
board mehtings when his own interests conflicted with the interests of
the company for which he was manager. The impropriety of this was alluded to, and it was stated that he
had improperly dealt with funds for
which he was trustee, in that he had
dealt with affairs in which he had a
money interest. It was further stated
that he and Messrs. Fowler, Lefurgey
and Bennett had received favors from
! railway magnates in the purchase of
land, and that their attitude to the
Grand Trunk Pacific was influenced
thereby. This matter is to come up
again in the house this session.

Some people, too insignificant to be
seen with the naked eye and absolutely
devoid of brains, take their revenge
for imaginary grievances by methods
that a felon would scorn to adopt.
The lowest and most cowardly type
of criminal is the man who wreaks his
revenge on an enemy by destroying or
wrecking his property.
As a rule, a clique works to advance
the personal interests of its members,
ond not in the interest of the community as a whole.
Financial strgeons in Europe lia-e
just operated successfully on the Hill

Men Bale by Force, Women by Charm
And yet because they live lessactively
women neglect the early evidences of
failing vigor. The wise woman will
not permit her charms to be robbed
by ill* health. When she feels appetite failing, nerves getting on edge,
color fading, she takes Ferrozone.
How it sharpens the appetite! How
quickly rich blood is avai'able to r -
store color to the cheeks, buoyancy to
the step. Better try Ferrozone. You'll
feel like a new being, with new vigor
and ability to confront life's difficulties. You are sure to bless tho day
you commenced Ferrozone. Sold everywhere in 50c boxes.

J. F.  Linburg, of Rossland,
Secures 1000 Acres of
Timber Limits
Will    Cut Cedar  Telegraph
Poles for the Eastern
The contention frequently made
in these columns that the advent of
the Kettle Valley line into the North
Fork country would create a Btir of
activity in that section has already
made itself manifest, and it is reasonable to suppose that within a year
or two that country, which is directly tributary to Grand Forks, will be
one of the principal sources of the
city's prosperity.
During the present week Mr. John
F. Lindburg, of Rossland, has pur
chased tbe stumpage of 1000 acres
of timber limits. Tbis immense
tract of land is about twelve miles in
length. It lies along the Keltle line,
the southern boundary of tbe land
being about twelve miles ncrth of
tbe city. Mr. Linburg has also
taken an option on five adjoining
Mr. Linburg will cut all the cedar
telegraph poles that he can get from
tbis land, having secured a good
eastern market for the sans He
intends to run four camps all summer. The first camp will start work
next Monday morning. The majority of the poles are to be shipped
to-St. Paul, Minneapolis and Chicago, and as there is a 20 per cent
duty on this class of timber entering the states, it can readily be seen
that timbernieu on tbis side tbe line
are under a decided disadvantage in
competing for tbe American market.
It is not the intention of Mr. Linburg to start shipping poles until
next fall. In order to facilitate I..ailing the Kettle Valley line Imve
agreed to put in a big ysrd just
above thefiret bridge up the river.
Mi. Linburg is the pioneiT in this
industry in the North Fork country,
and he deserves considerable commendation for his enterprise. He
will leave for his home in Rossland
tomorrow, but will return here next
Monday, when operations will be
commenced on a large scale.
