Exemptions���������Juvenile Courts Provided���������More Liquor Legislation���������  Session is Harmonious  (News Advertiser)  Victoria, February 12.���������-There have  been no very startling incidents either  in  legislation   or   debate   during   the  past week.    A great many minor and*  a few important Bills- have been pushed along through.various stages.   The-  Assessment Bill has passed the House;  and according  to premier McBride, it  is the  Government's last word in re-  ducing taxation for thi^s'session,    Mr.-  Hawthornthwaite made a last effort  to have*: the exemption on incemie lais-  ed to $2,000,'and for a time the Finance  Minister, Hon. Mr. Bowser, seemed inclined  to consider   some   concession,  but after -looking carefully** into, it he  clime  to the conclusion  that it.would  disrupt the. finances of the Province  too much to make any. further change  this session.    The Bill,1 therefore passed the House practically unchanged in  all its detuils.  Hon. Dr. Young's Bill to autheu-ise  the appointment of a Commission to  select a-'site ��������� for a Provincial University, passed second reading in tumult  of acclaim, the only discordant note  being raised-by Mr. Parker Williams,  who only seemed to see in the proposed- institution an instrument for  advancing the value of real estate*, or  providing.^ market for potatoes. His  rather pessimistic protest was, however, quite drowned in the chorus of  approval that greeted the Bill.  Hon. Mr. Bowser's new Liquor Act  is so far the most startling legislative  inne>vatiori-.nf the present sessiem. Its  provisions,-.which are described in detail in- his ejwn speeich foreshadow  drastic changes: more especially in-  country: places, the endeavor evidently -being to turn the wayside" saloon-  into a. hostelry; where the weary  traveller: may;' pause-arid say, "I will  take mine ease-in mine inn." It gives  power to chiefs of police.which will, be  welcomed: by sad-hearted.wives, who  would reform their husbands, without  bringing, them-to public shame in a  police, court;  The Juvenile-Courts Bill, and the  Bills to exempt'Dominion annuities  from seizure were also measures that  went through with general approval.  The Attorney-General's little Bill, .exempting the Crown from the"- infliction  of Court ceists, had hot so easy-a-progress.- The Bills to amend the Public  Schools Act, tlie Children's Protection  Act, and the Placer Mining Act are  all measures eif semie importance still  before the Heiuse.  The* week ends with the order paper  loaded with new Bills. The Land Act  with its timber licence amendment, is  likely to ce>me deiwn in the early part  e>f the week. The Canadian Neii thern  Bill is still a will-ei'-the-wisp, that  ke-eps flying a short distance before  the- busirn*ss of the session, but it may  come down at any time after the -preliminary legislation of the sessiem has  been dispensed of, or- it may have te>  wait till the Budget has gone through,  Under any circumstances, the legislation of the ��������� session is likely to be  .much heavier than usual. |  The prophets wlu> predicted the disruption of the Govern merit ranks  from their own weight, have se> far  been disappointed: The sessiem to elate  hits been a. most orderly one. Even  the Socialists have spoken with more  mildness   than usual,  and  '���������Tories te>  From charter-mongers and from  builders of paper railways, not British  Columbia alone, but every other province-of the Dominion .has suffered.  But British Columbia will suffer no  longer, so far as the* provincial government can effect a remedy. Premier  McBride's announcement in the legislature yesterday means that for the  future holders eif railway charters  must fulfil their obligations or lose  their privileges. Renewals of railway  charters will no longer be permitted  unless good and sufficient reason can  be urged for the application.  The map of Canada   is  eobwebbed  with routes for which railway charters  have been granted  but on which steel  will never be laid.    The charters have  fallen  into the hands   of irresponsible  individuals,  who have  neither ability  nor intention  to build the lines,   but  who seek te> make money by peddling  the privileges which they have obtained without cost, e������r they are held with  tho object of preserving the territory  from  the  competition  of rival lines.  In  either, case no  useful   purpose  is  served,' and the  tendency is to check  development. ' In future  the government intends- to forbid the renewal of  charters unless the good,faith" of the  holder is   abundantly  demonstrated.  Those who hold railway charters must  build the lines or leave  the field for  others who may desire to do so.  G. N. R.  INTO OKANAGAN  Application   for Charter to   Build   from  Penticton to Oroville.  PRACTICES AS SHE PREACHES  Victoria, Feb. 10.���������The V. V. <fc E.  Railway company intends to construct  a line of railway freun Penticton south  to the internatiemal boundary line,  from whence connection will be made*  with the Great Northern railway system in the State of Washington.  The Great Northern will build north  freun Oroville! te> meet tlie line running  through the Southern Okanagan valley from Penticton.  ' In the legislature this afternoon Mr.  L. W. Shatford asked leave te> present  a bill for the incorporation eif the* Penticton Railway company with power  to build a railway to the boundary  line, a distance approximately 50  miles.'  Those seeking the incorporation of  the company are; Messrs. A. H. Mac-  Neill, Vancouvei. who is solicitor for  the V. V. & E. and Great Northern  railways and Mr. J. H. Kennedy, chief  engineer eif Hill cemstructiem in Canada.    -  Mr. Shatford states that the line  will greatly aid in the development  of the* semthern Okanagan valley and  by junctio'n with the V. V. & E. at  Oroville connection will be had with  Vancouver on the completion of the  V. V. & E. cemstructiem over the Hope  mountains. At Penticton connection  will be made with the Kettle valley  lines thus affording another link with  Vancemver.  THE PATRONAGE SYSTEM  Mr. G. E.   Foster's  Arraignment of the  Evil���������Enormous Proportions of  the Organization  TARTE SEES DIFFERENTLY  And Invites Colored Ladies te Join Political Equality Club.  New ;York, Feb. 6���������O. H. P. Belmont, wife of the rnultiniilliouaire  traction magnate, has invited the negro women of the state te> join the  political equality club, of which she is  president. Ultimately they may form  suffrage associations of their own, but  for the present as many' as wish will  be admitted to the political equality  club. Forty enrolled at a meeting addressed by Mrs. Belmont in an.uptown, westside negro church.  Mrs. Belmont came quickly to her  point., "Lfeel," she told her hearers  "that unless this cause^.nieans freedom  and equal rights to all: women, of  every race, e>f every creed. . rich or  poor, its doctrines are worthless, and  it must fail.  "Washington fought fen- the liberty  of all people, and later the states enfranchised some classes of men, but  forgot all the mothers of the race.  Lincoln gave freedom to the negro  people and later the republican party  enfranchised the negro men, but ignored both the white and colored mothers  e>f the land."  He Contends that French  Canadians are  ';. Not Opposed to Effective Aid.  WILLISON'S NEW BERTH  Takes  Charge of Canadian and   United  States News Service of London  Times.  it is understood that John S. Willi-  son, late of The News, is returning  this week to Canada to take charge of  The London Times ne-ws service, not  only for Canada, but for the United  States.  It is' also said that he will be in a  way ei kind of political guide and pathfinder- feu- the tariff reform movement  in England, and will be in London  some of his time on this phase of his  work. .  He recently wrote for the Canadian  press a defence of Lend Northcliffe in  reply to the criticism passed em that  noble journalist by Dr. J. A. Macdon-  alel of the Toronto Globe.  The manly stand taken by Henri  Tarte, of La. Patrie, son of the late J.  I. Tarte, is 'more or less a rebuke to  Laurier, whose fear of opposition from  his French Canadian supporters has  resulted in a naval policy which must  bring Canada into ^contempt in other  parts of the British Empire. Tarte  does not believe that French Canadians are opposed to a full and proper  fulfilment of Canada's duty to herself  and to the cause <jf Empire and he  is beginning a campaign in: favor of  generous- effective aid on the part of'  Canada.  Tarte is right, and only a little of  such effort as he is prepared to put  forth will be necessary to fully, demonstrate.the soundness of his views.  Even their Gallic sympathies would  impel French Canadians at the present time to give full accord to  effective aid on the part of Canada to  the British Navy. France today is  strongly in sympathy with the British  Unionist policy of strengthening  the British fleet, for France knows better than we do the perfidy of German  statecraft and can see through Germany's designs.

Hem. Clifford Sifton says he has  found his life work in Conservation.  It would be difficult to find a worthier  object.  William Pruette, the singer, tells of  a servant girl who came tei Mrs.  Pruette in tears and asked permission  to go home for a few days. She had a  telegram saying her mother was  sick.  "Certainly you may go," saiel Mrs.  Pruette, "only don't stay longer than  is necessary,  as we need you."  A week passed find not ft. word from  here.    Then came a note which   read:  "Dear Miss Pruette i wil bo back  nex week and plesc kep my place feir  my mother is dying as fast as she can."

Ottawa, Feb. 10.���������Mr. G. 13. Foster  last week -moved for the abolition of  the patronage system. The resolution  he asked the Heiuse to adopt was as  follows:���������  "That in the opinion e>f this House  the prevailing system of party patronage constitutes a menace te> honest  and efficient government, incites to  great waste of resources and extravagance of expenditures, tends inevitably to corrupt and lower the teuie of  public morals, and should foithwith  be eliminated from our federal administration."  Tlie most striking thing in Mr. Foster's-masterly speech was his massing  of the number of appointments within  the gift of the Government, and permeated by the. Patronage system. The  list is:��������� ,  The  inside   Civil   Service:   S,000  to  10,000.  The Intercolonial: S,00() to 10,000.  The  Post Office; 12,000 postma.-ters;  GOO railway mail clerks.  The Customs: veiy numerous.  The Inland Revenue': also numerous.  The   Interior     staff;    immigration  branch, lands branch,   Indian branch.  Department  of Murine & Fisheries:  500 to COO employees  in dredges aleme; -  800 at one point,   Sorel, alone*; 500 per-  se>ns in Government steamers; fisheries  inspectors,   marine agents, lighthouse  keepers, buoy keepers, etc., e'tc.  Department of Agriculture: a large  stalt*.  Department of Public Works: a very  large staff, and the men working on  ten or twelve million dollars' worth of  works 'yearly.  Altogether, the outside service must  numbe'i-about 30,000.  The Transcontinental Railway Commission: a very large employer.  The Railway Commission.  A vast number of temporary commissions.  The Judiciary: almeist every judge  is appointed for party reasons.  The Senate: a vast reservoir eif patronage for the Prime Minister.-  The House of Commons is part of  the system.  The Press: its work of keeping the  conscience of the nation sensitive is  hampered by patronage.  That is the system. The cemntry  spends now about .$80,000,000 a year,  every dollar of which goes out through  the vast machine sketched above.  The Government rejected Mr-. Foster's motion.  RAILWAY FATALITY.  Dave Roberts, an Oroville Miner Killed by  V. V. & E. Train.  (Oroville Gazette)  Dave Roberts met with an  accident  Monday evening that resulted fatally.  Mr. Roberts has charge e>f the  Golden  Sands Placer Mining company's  property, and occupies a cabin at the- claims.  On Meinday Roberts was in town  and  left for his cabin late in the aftcrnoem.  Shortly after reaching his cabin he ele-  cieletl to return te> Orovilh*, and  disregarding the- fact    that  the  Kere-meos  train was about due-, he started on the  speeder  that   he   uses  e>n   the   return  trip.    He had gone only  a  short    distance and was em  a. curve  when  the  Kereineos    train    rushed  around   the  curve-.    He  hail no time   to clear the  track.    The engineer was not able  te>  see the speeder until   the-  leie.-emiotiye  was close upon it.    Air  was   applied,  but before the momentum of the train  could   be     checked    the   engine;    had  struck the obstructiem.    The train was  stopped as soon   as   possible.    Roberts  was found unconsciems on one*.side..of  the track and the speeder em the othe,r.  The injured man was brought to  Oroville.  No blame can be atta.ched to !the-  train crew. Tlie* accident occurred at  a. point where the- e-ngine-.ei- could see  only a. short distance ahead, and when  he was startleel by the sight of the  spi'C'der on the track, lie.* did'all in his  power to avert the catastrophe.' ' Roberts was perfectly familiar, .with the-  running sche-dule.*. of ..trains a.ndr he  took long and ilespe-rate c.-hane-es when  he star-te'd out at the time* lie did. ^ImE'-'H^DiE^G^  Cte Uttdtey ������azcite  l.i.MiTKU..

While he .dealt'with the question'  from a national .rather than a party  standpoint lie was nevertheleiss outspoken in elenune-iation of the woeful  sheVrtcomin'gs <>f the governhie^nt's  naval policy, and the ground he tneik  was that Canada's contribution te) imperial ejefene'e we������uld be valueless if it  was not pursued in-the direction to se-  . e-im.- tin' greatest effectiveness for t-h'e  rune unit expended. It is unfortiihate  that the* question is beginning to  arouse' pa.rty ranceir and that the de-  batiis in the ��������������������������� house are teneling moi-e;  in that direction each day, largely as  the- result'of the unmistakable note of  party bitterness imparted by the 'Premier himself,'..when there, was 'no n;*-  -cessity fe)i- it. 'Ofcour.se the Premier  was in a, difficult position in view eif  the rather hostile' attitude of se> many  of his compatriots in the province of  Que-be-c, but having put his hand te>  the plow to the extent- indicated by  the- resolution of last, session it was a  mistake for him to attempt to recede,  from that position or tei  minimize the  'effectiveness of the-aid to he given by  Canada   feu-   the sake   of  any   party  benefit which he thronht might be de-  rive-el  by endeavoring   to placate elis-  senting co'mpatriots.   It is well known  that  K.  L.

Now the Borden amendment which  was attacked so bitterly by Sir Wilfrid was more chivalrous in its atti  tude than the course pursued by Sir  Wilfrid in 189C5 feu- it states in unequivocal terms what its supporters would  be prepared to do if they were required to act.

A rather severe attack of grippe  appears to be going around, and as a  result several of our citizens have had  involuntary'holidays that were, hot  particularly enjoyable. ' Neuralgia accompanied a. number eif ��������� the - attacks,  and-that, is a; malady that is bad  enonghin itself without any grrppy  accompaniment.  At China New Year wyery .Chink "is  expected to, .'(.and'it Ms said generally  does) pay up all he; owes; It is also  claimed tliat some Chinamen take it  so much tp heart that if they can't pay  up they will.commit suicide. Now, if  delinquent 'subscribers could bhly.be  brought to feel .like that about; this"  little matter of paying up, what"a.boon  it would be to editors andundertakers."  It was with ree-ret the news was received last week in Hedley of the accident which befel W. C. McDougall, of  Princeton, who was seriously injured  in a tunnel on his coal property where  a cave-in of rock'caught him, breaking  his collar bone and several ribs and it  was feared that there were internal  injuries as well. The handle of the.pick  lie was working with broke in two,  anel his escape from instant death was  considered almost miraculous. His.  many friends in Hedley anel tlie lower  valley hope-, for his speedy recovery.  . On Monday   the last   piece of machinery for the  Hedley  Gold  Mining  Company's    new   power   plant     was  hauled from the Hedley depot to  the  power-house,   and   Mr.  Jones  appreciated the advantage of being able  to  do all the handling here at   home, instead of sending men and teams out  ���������to'Penticton as they had  to do when  all the   other  heavy   machinery was  brought in.    One  costing in this shipment weighed over 10,000 Ib.s.   instead  of unloading on   the bank above  the  power-house as was formerly done and  sliding it down the bank  to the floor  on which they were to be set  up,   the  teams used the lower wood road and  delivered the inn chines on the same  level as they were to be set up.  After you've been two weeks in  the  house with one of those terrible handy  men that ask their wives to  be sure  and wipe between  the tines   of  the  forks,  and that know just, how -much  raising bread, ought to have,"and how  to hang out a wash so each piece wili  get the best sun, it's a real joy to get  back to the   ordinary kind of man;  Yet, 'tis so! Mrs Gregg finished, with  much emphasis.    "I want a man who  should .'have , sense about the   thing-she's   meant-   to   have   sense   about.  but .when it comes to keeping house,  I like him real helpless,  the way the  Lord planned to have him!"  ���������  ���������  ������������������  ���������-  ���������'  ���������:���������  *  1"  We Have It  Smoked Haddies  Kippered Herring  Boneless Codfish  Salt Herring  Salmon Bellies  Canned Salmon ...... ,  '���������'    Kipperd Herring  ���������*���������"���������       Mackerel  "       Oysters  ���������"���������'       Clams  "7      Lobsters.
