PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT  OPENED.  Following was the opening Speech  from the Throne, Ly Lleut.-Governor  Sir Henri Joly de ."Lotblniere, at Victoria, on JulyJUHh:  "Mr. Speaker und gentlemen ot the  Le-rlslatlve Assembly:  It aifords me pleasure lu meet you nt  the opening of the First Session of  the Ninth Parliament of British Col-  tiir.'bla, thl.-i being the curliest occasion  since my uecesslon to office.   ���'.���'...  I riacrct that the Empire is still Involved In the War with South Africa,  new happily nearing a successful termination; and also that the foreign relations have been still further seriously complicated by tlie recent outbreak  In China. It has been a circumstance  of the deepest significance that the Colonies hnve -riven such loyul support to  the Mother Country ln the hour of trial.  Particularly Is it a matter of pride to  .Her Majesty's subjects in this Dominion  that the response to the cull for aid  has been general and voluntary  throughout all the provinces, and conspicuously so iri British Columbia; and  that the several Canadian .contingents  Have earned the warmest praise of military authorities for valor and efcctlve  work in action.  I am pleased to know that the industries of the Province are ln a fairly  prosperous* condition, notwithstanding  a temporary wave of depression. Metalliferous mining, which was more particularly affected, Is resuming a more  1101 niul condition of activity, and 1 anticipate a largely increased output for  the 'present year. Coal mining ln East  Kootenay and on Vancouver Island is  on u prosperous basis, the output in  the past year exceeding that of any-  other year. Agriculture, including  fruit-growing, dairying, stock-raising,  and other branches, Is making steady  progress, with prospects of an ultimate  ureal development. The fisheries last  year were successfully prosecuted, but  It is too early ln the season to Indicate  the results of the present year's operations.  I'observe that since the correspondence between the Government of British Columbia and the Federal and Im-  lierial Governments, relative to Asia-  tie 'Immit-ration, has been published, a  large Inllux of Japanese has taken place  and it Is the intention of my Government to make strong representations  to the authorities at Ottawa and in  Great Britain, with a view to protecting the interests of the laboi ing classes  against the consequences of what  threatens to be an alarming increase of  the Japanese population.  Tho extensive requirements of the  Province in respect to works of development, involve the carrying out.of a  vigorous policy of road-bulldlng, and  my Government will provide for a Bur-  vey and report on the various sections  reuuiring attention.  I am impressed with the opportunities  which exist for the profitable carrying  nn ot ithe 'manufacture of pulp In British Columbia, and I note with pleasure, that preparations are being made  and sites arranged for tlie extensive  prosecution of this Important industry.  My Government will ask for an appropriation for defraying the expenses  ot .a commission to ,'enqulre into the  working of the mining acts, with a  view to introducing legislation for the  purj.cse of amending them at the next  session; and into the various conditions  affecting the question ot water rights.  It Is the intention o�� my Government  to imnoso a tonnage tax on the output  of coal and coke in this Province, and  other measures will be considered for  the purpose of Increasing the revenue.  It Is the- intention uf my Government  to provide In tho Estimates for a sum  to place the olllce of the Agent-General  on a more satisfactory basis.  Owing to tlie fact that the present Is  an extra session for the purpose mainly  of voting supplies, and that the regular  session will be held at an early date,  the measures to be submitted for your  consideration, though of an Important  nature, will be few in number.  The Estimates of receipts and expenditure, which have been prepared with  a ilus regard to economy, and the requirements of the Province, will be submitted at an early date.  A vote for the expenditure necessary  to curry on the business of tho Government until the Estimates are passed  will be Immediately asked^  Indians, unanimously deciding to hold  out for 25 cents per ,flsh for the season. The Araneouvcr Union therefore  took the same action.  The same delegates were then Instructed lo wait upon t'he canners on  Friday at 11 a. in. and deliver the reports received from the respective unions and the decision of the united fishermen. Further steps were taken for  organisation and to meet the exigencies  of a possible protracted struggle. A  mass meeting of fishermen was held  In Westminster on Thursday aiid was  addressed by Mr. Francis Williams and  Captain Anderson of this City, a large  number of local Hshermeht taking part.  , This morning iMr. W. MacClaln Iaaves  for Steveston with a boat-load of provisions for the men on strike there. The  consignment Includes 500 loaves of  brfead, a barrel of Hour, rice, potatoes  and Ash.  On Friday the Indian Band, accompanied by the local Committee and a  number of fishermen left for Nanalmo and laid the full facts before  the miners, who promised their financial support. The fishermen were well  received at the Diamond City.  One fact commented on very favorably was the manly stand taken by the  Japanese, who are pulling with the  whites to a man. The "little brown  men" are penniless and without sufficient food, but refuse to fish for less  than the white man, although great  pressure Is being brought to bear on  him to do so. It is a common occur-  ance to see the white fishermen shanking hands with the Jap.  An incident of the meeting last night  was tlie taking up of a collection  amongst the men in aid of the wife of  one of the absentee fishermen who is  stranded in Vancouver- with several,  children and no means of supporting  them.  readily observed that the big llsh will  surely swaillow the minnow, the name  applies  to nil other  mercUntile  businesses.    Thus from by-gone experience  It was'to be expected that the I'sher-  men  would  show some  disposition  to  take a firm stund in not budging from  the 25-eent rate, Which they assert, on  the average,  will little more thiin pay  tictunl living expenses.     The action of  the canners  by  arbitrarily    declaring  ���that the price of fish shall he IS ceiils  doi-s not show the least spirit of Justice.  It smirks so much of custom, us to at  once  declare  before   the  public  mind  their   dictatorial    methods    of   doing  tiling? in the past.    Has Is ever occurred once to the canners that in affixing a   price  oh  fish  some other  than  their   own   interests   should   have-the'  scant  courtesy  of  even  consultation?  The past unreasonableness of the employers���for such  Is  the ease���we arc  j;!cai,ed  to note does not still form a  barrier to the fishermen to an equitable  Settlement.    Therefore it behooves the  canners to show a willingness at conciliation,  and  In  this  regard  no little  amount of praise is due the labor com-  Bibsioner, Mr. Bremner, who has worked hard In  this direction.    There can  be little doubt that if the public note  a lack of toleration in these busy and  advanced times on one side or the other,  that side immediately becomes the target of Its displeasure.     Another fact  Mint should be remembered is that if  conciliation  is abortive���there is as a  last resort arbitration.    The fishermen  claim that the average catch .for a boat  is 1.000 for the season.    The total pack  last year wns a trille over 510,000 cases,  it i�� claimed thai by the mesh of the  lawful  net used   the fisli caught will  average about 10 Co the case.    There  ,aie in the neighborhood of 1,000 licences  Issued.       'Th'ls   it  would  seem, would  leave a ivc-ry scant amount left to the  bona fide fisherman.   . _.*._  A meeting of the Fishermen's Union  was held last night to take, into consideration the offer of 'the Canners' As-  toeiation. Captain .McCarthy, delegate,  reported that he had attended the Joint  meeting and that the canners had offered 18 cents for the season. The Japanese were prepared to llsh for 20 tents,  also the New Westminster fishermen;  Steveston was In favor of 25 cents, and  the North Arm men stood with them.  A vote was then taken on the motion,  "Resolved that we do not accept less  than 25 cents a fish," and was declared  carried.  The men claim that .they could not  do more than make a bare living even  if 25 cents per llsh nvere paid, and give  t'he following figures lo substantiate  their argument:  Estimated average catch per boat for  the remainder,of the.season���1,000'llsh'  equal, at 25 cents' each, $230.'

The Fisehermou's union met in  Union hull on Wednesday evening to hear the report of the delegates  appointed lo meet the Canners' Committee. Upon receiving, the report it  was decided lo adjourn till 10 p. m., to  eiiaide the Japanese Union and white  fishermen at Steveston to be communicated with.  The delegation that waited upon the  canners was representative of the  whole Industry, belnir as follows: M.  Okl, Japanese Union; A. Kolosoff,  North Arm fishermen; N. B. Grant,  Westminster fishermen; "W. Lumbly,  Steveston fishermen; J. Leaf. Mud Bay  and J. McCarthy and W. Harris, Vancouver fishermen.   ��� ���  At 10 p. m.,. the meeting again assembled, a very large number of fisher  Total : $243  It was also stated at the meeting that  a fislicrmen's patrol boat olt Steveston  had secured and taken into Steveston  a net 200 fathoms long, which was a  breach of the Fisheries regulations; the  patrol was, however, unable to obtain  the mime of the man using the net.  A Steveston fisherman also stated  that he had attended a previous joint  meeting of the canners and 'men on behalf of his Union, and that afterwards  some one had circulated a letter in  Steveston saying that lie hold informed  the meeting that the men he represented were willing to work for 20 cents.  The assertion'was untrue- and the canners were credited with having caused  its circulation.  The union men also contend that although many boats are fishing and  the canners claim thai they are taking  fish to the canneries, there is not a  boat or a net out for such a purpose.  All the the boats out, the men state,  are simply caching fish for the consumption of the men on strike and for  no other purpose. There is a movement on foot also to allow certain of  the men to sell fish to private customers and to stores for home consumption provided no canneries obtain supplies thereby.  THE  FISHERMEN'S   GRIEVAiNCES.  The question of the right or wrong of  the flshermen's-canners' dispute would,  "perhaps^irpeiir-tTTbb one that cannot  be solved by 'the laymen, especially is  this demonstrated by the tact that the  eaniiuymen refused to discuss matters  with no other representatives than bona  lide fishermen. For years past the  fWherinor: have had legitimate grievances. The canners claim that they,  too, have had cause ot complaint. We  li'iivc- It to our renders to judge whose  were the real grievances. The c.in-  iior�� know not .what it Is to go hungry,  but It Is not the case with the fishermen. Is it any wonder then that the  fishermen are forced to take the bit In  their mouth when once, aroused. In  other words, with the fishermen It Is n  case between the devll^ and deep sea.  If they accept the canners meagre  lernis of less than halt a loaf they make  next to nothing. On the other hand, if  ihey do not accept, the outcome Is practically the same. And II would nppenr  from the very arbitrary and autocratic  icction. of the carrners-.that they will  temporarily close down In order to  'squeeze out the smaller und financially  weak canners. By the term used we  mc-iin those canners who have their  coming or anticipated pack already  mortgaged to t'he utmost limit to the  banks for amounts to carry on operations at fabulous rates of Interest.

Referred Lo Organisation Committee.  REPORTS.  The Parliamentary Committee reported progress.  ���Mr. Macpherson reported for the deputation which waited on the School  Board, regarding the day labor on the  proposed school additions. The discussion on the question at the meeting,  from outward appearance, seemed to be  favorable to the propostion. He did  not think, however, that the impression was very deep. Mr. Macpherson  hoped that the discussion (would turn  out favorable, and the principle be adopted,  as advocated.  Mr. Todd, discussing Mr. "Macpher-  son's report, said that he had got the  impression, that the press of this City  was not as favorable to labor since the  election as it was before.  jMx._Pearey_reppr.ted _fo r_th e _ La bor_  Day Committee. He said that there  was a small attendance at the meeting on Wednesday night. A full attend? nee was requested at the next  meeting on Wednesday night. Each  union was entitled to one extra dele'  gateo*n the Committee. The hall, however, had been started rolling, and the  outlook for a successful celebration was  bright. '   '  iMr. Wilby, for the auditors, reported  that tlie Secretary's books were correct The Treasurer's book had not  yet been audited.  It wns stated that the Canadian Pacific Railway wjis allegedly taking from  Its employees, against their Wishes, $l  ouch, for a doctor. Five or six unions  had met and unnnlmbusly declared that  tney: were opposed to paying this assessment. It was pointed out that the  officials and employees of the Canadian  Pacific Railway had themselves to  blame, as thereWere Provincial statutes .providing against this sort of assessment, it was also stated that in  this It wan the old story of the weak  ugalns't the strong; no particular Individual wauled to take the matter up  aiid be responsible, since lt would mean  that that Individual would lose his job.  Also, Mr. Bremner, whom It was proposed to appoint to Investigate the matter, was not In this Province as a prosecuting attorney. The whole mn'tter  was referred to the Parliamentary Com-  The Independent paiv Mr. Maxwell,  M. P., who has just returned from Ol-  toiwa, and had a very lengthy talk witli  him over matters pertaining to lihor  legislation, and as is characteristic of  the genial member lie -was most ready  with his Information. Owing to our  limited space, we are compelled to publish only part of his interview, which  will take three of four Issues to complete:  "You ask me about the session of  Parliament. Well, it has, though unduly prolonged, been one ot the most  Important sessions ever held. What  could 'be proved in various -ways; bin,  to me, the legislation carried out in  the interests of the working classes  ���ma-ke lt perhaps tlie most important  ever held ln Canada.  "TO GIVE EFFECT THERETO.'*  "During the session, Hon. Mr. Mulock, the most progressive Postmaster-  General Canada has ever had, introduced the following resolution:-  "Adjourned debate on  the proposed  motion of Mr. Mulock:  'That it be resolved, that all Government contracts  should contain such conditions as will  prevent abuses, which may arise from  sub-letting of such contracts, and that  every eftort should ibe made to secure  tne   payment   of  such   wages  as  are  generally accepted as current ln each  trade  for competent workmen  in the  district where the work Is carried out,  and that this House cordially concurs  In such policy, and deeni3 it the duty  of the Government to take immediate  steps to give ettect thereto.    It is hereby declared that the work to which the  lorego.'ng  policy shall  apply Includes  not enly .work undertaken by the Government  ilself,  but also  works aided  by grant  ot  Dominion   putolic  funds.'  The motion of Mr. Clarke in amendment  thereto, and tne motion of "Mr. Campbell in amendment to said amendment.  "Those who know how working men  have been  humbugged  and  robbed in  the pu��st. hailed the introduction of the  resolution as giving evidence of a new  departure, which meant a belter condition   of   things  for   those   who  had  been victimised in  the past.     Strange  to say, however, many leaders on the  Conservative side damned it wilh feint  praise:   they could  see no good in it.  Some said it was meant to throw dust  in the eyes of the working men, and no  on.     Mr. Mulock took the bull by the  horns, and appointed a very good friend  ot my own and one  who is well and  favoiably  known  throughout  Canada,  as un a'ble and honorable labor leader.  I refer  to  Mr.  O'Donoghue.     In  this  way they carried out that part of the  resolution which  reads,  'and deems II  the duty of the Government 10 take immediate steps to give effect thereto.'

"At tlie suggestion of my friend  Mr. Puttee, the popular labor representative, this was amended so as not  to Include or to apply to trade unions.  It was sent to the Senate���that learned body. Imagine our horror when  the Senate changed' the bill so as to  make It apply to trade unions, that  is to say, ACCORDING TO THE SENATE, TRADE UNIONS ARE ILLEGAL INSTITUTIONS, and. in caie of  strikes, would be liable to a penalty  of $4,000 if they make a stand for their  rights. The bill came back to the  Commons. We asked the leader ot the  Government what he Intended to do  with the amendment of .the Senate.  'Do,' ouid he, 'what else can we do.  but stand toy the trade unions of oui-  country. The action of the Senate Is  Vnonstrous.' True to his word, he  wiped out the amendment of the Senate. It went back again, and again  the Senate has shown its teeth by  making the section apply to trade  unions.  SENATE KILLS  UNION  LABEL  BTLL.  "What can we do?

We can neither initiate nor  carry through legislation, simply because we know these misty, musty old  gentlemen, who have long ago outlived their usefulness, will throw it  out. Twice during this parliament the  Senate has thrown out a bill which,  not only the laibor men of this country  urgently demanded, but which.passed  through the House of Commons almost  unanimously.

The Labor Party will hold a mass  meeting Wednesday evening, in,-Union  hall,' for the purpose of completing  organization, electing permanent officers, and transacting any other business. All those who are In sympathy  with the movement are invited to attend.   There should be a big turn-out.  On motion it was resolved that the  vhairman call a public meeting ot all  citizens in sympathy with and willing  to join the labor party on Wednesday,  July 25th next, to complete organiza-,.  lion. The secretary was also instructed to advertise the same.  rrhe   following1   resolution   was,,laid  over until July 25th:  Resolved���That the President, of the  Dominion Trades and Labor Congress,  Mr. Ralph ��� Smith, be asked to call a  convention of delegates throughout the  province representing organized labor  for the purpose of drawing up a platform and organizing a provincial'la-,  :bor party convention, to be held in  Vancouver'on or about Labor Day.  LESSONS OF LABOR DAY.  Everything possible ought to be done  this year to make the Labor Day celebration a. thorough success. There are  reasons why this should be so. Accumulated wealth Is treading so rapidly upon the heels of humble bin honorable toil that a halt must he oalled,  and that at once. We have sufficient  evidence of this in the strike on the  Fruser,. river where, happily, the attempt of the salmon kings to grind  down the White fishermen to a barbarous level, failed lamentably, because  the great heart of the people. ibent in  sympathy with those.who seek a precarious living at comparatively small  wages and who, even then', are not  treated as subjects of the . liritish  Crown, home providers, and 'fathers ot  a household should be; on the contrary,  as the equals of those who are here today and away tomorrow, who have no  stake in the country," who do not even  know our language, and who are ihe  special pets of the' men who ainiisH  vast Wealth out of their slave-like toll.  And even these, like the veriest rodent,  will turn, as witnesri the events ot* llie  patit few-weeks. Cheered doubtless by  the firm front which the "strikers"  ���displayed in the endeavor to make -lu'b-  or honorable many ol the aliens followed in the path thus laid down for  ���them and, for once in their lives perhaps, found themselves upon a higher  plane than they had ever reached before. Attempts at Intimidation there  were none, reason alone was appealed  to, and It cannot be said thai those  struggling for their God-givm liberties  and who have their dear ones to maintain In any way violated the law or  did injustice to the Hag that protect."  jthem.

The lalborer Is worthy of his  hire--that is as true a saying as the  Hook contains, and I.s as old as the  everlasting hills. It Is not, we believe,  d"nied that If wise counsels hnd' prevailed on the part of the canners,  there would' have been Utile or no dlf-  tieully; but when it came down to a  giab-ull proposition It wns apparent  thin to allow the precedent lo he established were suicidal ln the extreme  and for the present season at least,  as we have said, with llrcsldes empty  uf ihe very necessaries of. life, one  might look forward, In the event of a  possible dul IFall and consequent hard  Winter, to'iiUKm suffering and positive  destitution. We do not think these  sentiments will he considered by right-  thinking, fair-minded men as other than  sober and reasonable and we are con-  lident that they will ibe reflected in the  minds and hearts of all who love their  "kind." as Wordsworth termed those  who belong to us nnd for whose hii'P-  pinoss wo ought to strive, and who in  the greed for gold have not lost that  high sentiment which sweetens life by  adding to the enjoyment of others.  We see nothing In the "strike" to  blame the fishermen about and we believe they have been wisely counseled.  If they were to penult constant intrusions upon their Inherent rights without protest they would soon degrade  themselves to the level of the serfs  who In ancient days were the bondsmen of their lords and masters. It is  unfortunate the affair has occurred,  unfortunate in many respects, but it  may prove a .blessing In disguise,  leaching a- lesson that will be treasured up for remembrance in future years.  We congratulate the "strikers" on the  manly, law-abiding spirit they have  evinced all,through, and If the .procession of Saturday night last in this city  and ihe Incidents attending it can be  taken as a criterion���and they deserve  to be���they have the sympathy and respect, not only of their co-laborers in  this city, but as well of all those everywhere who believe that honest labor  deserves Its just reward and that in  submitting to high-handed methods  the workingman fails to maintain that  splendid heritage which, through cloud  and lire, has been handed down to him  by patriots, many of whose names are  emblazoned on Ihe pages of history,  While those ,of others, the long role  of deathless martyrs live in the hearts  uf those who love freedom and. hate  tyranny.  The foregoing is but a lesson. In our  every-dny life, which teaches tlmr'labor must be united, and. Labor Day Is  the occasion to demonstrate that  unity. The Labor Day!', celebration is as important as that of the  First of July, Canada'** national day.  The Lafoor day is an anniversary in  which all organized' and' unorganized  lailior should take an interest. A cynic  says? that there is no more reason for  having a Labor Day than for estab-  lishing.a Capital Day. We have no  objection to having a day set apart for  capitalists or even landlords to recuperate themselves to their hearts' con-  lent. ;But as a rule do not these gentry  folk' have their vacations whenever  ihey fee! like it���no matter what the  cost? There was no Lalbor Day in the  olden times, and .the establishment of  this annual iplay season, even though  It lie. tor only one day In 1165, is indicative of progress. But labor has not  yet learned the lesson of its power,  and Lalbor Day will not" have its literal  meaning, until that lesson is learned  and the toilers demand and. get their  just share of the wealth they produce.  and still make a "very large profit"  out ot the businessa. How would a  municipal bakery work?  J. P. Gordon, local agent of the  Paclllc Coast SS. company, says  through the World that the 'longshoremen returned lo work under the exact conditions proposed to them before  the lockout by the then superintendent  "Klng'Trowbridge. The denial to this  statement, however, will be found in  the company's agreement. Agent Gordon seems to have forgotten the example made hy. the company In dispensing wllh Ihe .services of the "e.\-  klng."  W. L. M. King, 1.1. A., has been appointed to tlie position of editor of the  Labor Gazette, provided for In Hon.  Mr. JIulock's Conciliiitlon Act, passed  last week. Citizen and Country says  that "the new editor Is not persona  grata to the industrial classes, as was  pledged by Mr. Mulock in the House  before the ���bill- was passed. He is  known only as a student, as the son of  a man having a big pull at Osgoode  Hall, nnd ,-is a man who jonee earned  a few dollars by writing an essay on  sweat shops for his god-fat'her, Mr.  Mulock."

This is how the Sandon "Paystreak"  discusses or rather assails the certainly  far-fetched adverse criticism of one  Senator Vidal on Mongol Immigration  restriction: "Hon. Alex. Vidal, a satellite from Sarnla, who holds down a  seat In the Senate Chamber, went on  record the other day us being opposed  to restricting Chinese immigration,  because 'It was neither Christian nor  liritish.' If Senator Vidal and other  venerable Idiots In the Ottawa Senate  were half ns Christian or Hritlsh as  they would have the world believe,  they would probably navy that the  principal objection to Chinese is that  they are not and never will be 'Christian or British.' Senator Vidal Is a  fossilized fool, and he should be shot  over the dump of oblivion into the  high-pressure hell thnt.is prepared for  religious fanatics who choke on a Canadian mosquito but swallow a leprosy-  laden Chinese caravan."  The style ot the above may be open  to criticism, being certainly unclassl-  cal, but an average British Columbian  cannot but sympathize with the writer's Intent under existing circumstances, when the ordinary Westerner's very living is threatened by organized imports of sweated Oriental  labor. For this reason, wc overlook  the rather studied exaggeration of the  Paystreak.  Tor Boys!

The marked  successes which have since, attended  the British and in .which our Canadian  volunteer soldiers have taken conspicuous nnd' glorious -part justify the  hope that peace will soon ibe restored  In thai distant land. '���.,  The large number of private bills  with industrial objects considered and  passed Is it good indication, '[ of the  greiit'expnnsion of the business of the  country. . Y ���   .       '   ;:������).  I desire in congratulate /you on the  buoyant state, of the revenue. The  large receipts have enabled, my Government, to: provide liberally for the  public.-'service .und to maintain Canada's strong Ilnaneial position.  A marked feature of the session has  been "the adoption of many Important  measures which must beneficially affect the future of the Dominion. The  improvement!' In the Acit relating to  banks will tend lo protect a system, of  which Canada has reason to feel proud.  The extension of the British preference in our tariff, will tend to reduce  the -burden; of taxation ami "stimulate'  the growth of our, trade"....with the  ���Mother Country.  The -Measure ymi.' have passed regarding the admission of Canadian inscribed stock to [lie list of securities In  |iW.hlch^trustees=ln-Greiit=BritaIn=iiiuy=  Invest, is being, followed by similar  legislation'In the Imperial Parliament,  which will lu due course consummate  this very Important Improvement In  the financial affairs of the Dominion.  There is reason to believe that the  legislation of this session will have important and favorable results. I particularly .congratulate you upon the  passing of the Conciliation Act. whlcli  Il Is coiilldenlly hoped will not only  Improve Hie condition of the Industrial  classes, but will also better promote  the relations which ought to exist between capital and labor.  Gentlemen of the Mouse of Commons:  1 thank yon for the liberal'provision  which you have made for :he public  service.       '. " ..  Honorable Gentlemen of Ihe Senate:  Gentlemen of the House of Commons:  It"affords ine much pleasure to observe that the prosperity of Canada  continues unabated, and 1 pray tha'.

I have no hesitation in saying  that I am in the same wagon as the  right hon. leader of the government  (Sir Wilfrid Laurier), and I .prefer it  to the very old, ramshackle .affair In  which the hon. gentleman (Mr. Foster)  finds himself. And not alone is the  vehicle better"5 but the horses that are  drawing this wagon are sound in wind  and limb; they are not epavined, nor  asthmatic, nor wind-blown and' liable  to break down. I would strongly advise the hon. gentleman'to come in  with us. He would find it very smooth  riding.  An hon. member.   We do not want  him. ���    Y'  .Mr. Morrison. No; 1 would like to  have him alongside of us. In our highly-  varnished; well-greased, well-equipped  and staunch vehicle.  Mr. Haggart.   Do you call  it well-  greased? ...  Mr.; Morrison.   Yes, like all wagons  that go well.   The grease has apparently given but with hon. gentlemen  opposite���they have run out.jbf that,  as of everything else.   However, as to  the Bill, which Is about to be brought  in,    I may eay, speaking for myself,  I am not satisfied.'. 1 say that frankly  ���and"no one knows that I am not satr  isfied better than the right hon. gentleman who leads the House.   I may go  further and say that, so far as'I am  concerned, and 6o far as my constituency is concerned, I do not think there  was one vote affected one way or the  other 'by the  telegram  it  was stated  was  sent  before the elections'of .1896.  I do  not  think  that was  the  object  with which it was sent; and If It was  the object, I do not think It had the  effect which the hon. gentleman (Mr.  Foster) insinuates.   I am certain this  fifty,dollars Increase is an'enrnest ot  what we very soon shall have, and I  think when the matter is fully Investigated and looked1 into, the. Prime Minister will feel justified In'*'giving that  measure of protection'In this respect  to the people of British Columbia that  they have been asking for, particularly  ���:������' It  Is  rather  a matter  of comment  for,the last three or four.years.  thatmy lion, friend, the member from.  Victoria (Mr. Prior), should, be'so solicitous   and   perturbed,  at  this  late  stage of, his parliamentary career,  on  this question of Chinese restriction.   I  look in vain for any indication of any  efforts on his ipart bef6re 1896, or on the  part of other gentlemen who represented   British   Columbia,   to ibrlng . a'bout  reform- In  this matter.    I find .that In  1SS5 there was a commission appointed,  which   commission    Investigated    this  question  of Chinese  immigration  Into  British Columbia.   That report, so far  as it was the work of the commissioners���that ' Is,   the  report' exclusive  of  the   evidence���is   directly   against   the  increase of ihe tax on Chinamen; it is  strongly   against    the    restriction    of  Chinese .Immigration. ���' And; that Is one,  of the greatest difficulties'the; Liberal  members from British Columbia have  had to  contend' with  in  this niattei���:  the report: of hon. ^gentlemen"opposite,  which was not ���justified, I believe, by  the   evidence  before  the. commission.  And doubtless the hon. senior member  for .Victoria.was  quite-satisfied   witli  this until ISflG, when he found a government  in   power  against which  lie  desired  to.make political capital..  He  was perfectly satisfied with the report  of that .commission.  Mr. Prior.    To what report does the  hon. gentleman (Mr. Morrison) refer''  Mr. Morrison.    The report    of   the  Chinese commission in  18S5,  the only  report on the subject, so far as I know.  I have yet to hear that the hon. member for Victoria, or any of the ���/letnbers  from British  Columbia ever attacked  that  report  or did  anything to  offset  the  erroneous-  Impression   which   that  report   must   have   made .throughout  eastetn^Canadai-���Nowr-asrl-sayr^ln^  stead of being satisfied with the legislation brought down here, I am not at  all saiisiied.    But as this government  has    done   ���infinitely  more than hon.  gentlemen oposlie, I am surprised that  In any .way they should seek to raise  any Invidious comparison between the  way  thl6  administration  has  handled  the matter and the way they handled  it themselves.' When they had nn opportunity, why did  they not bring in  leglslnllon  of  this  kind' and  give  the  people Vif , this  House  an  opportunity  to express their opinion?   it would be  a step at least toward;the education  of the people of eastern Canada as lo  the iieeowslty for stringent  restriction  of Chinese 'Immigration'.  Mr. .Prior.    Which parly was it that  took the Initial step In this matter?  Mr. .Morrison. That Is exactly what  I-am pointing; out, and It Is where'I  say lion, gentlemen are to. blame. If  they hud taken no step, they might  have been defended. But, to acknowledge that the restriction was neccflsnry  and then, to come down with a paltry  restriction like this tnx of fifty dollars,  which, for eighteen years, wo did not  have the opportunity of Increasing,  was worse than no action. When they  had the opportunity ot effectually stopping the Immigration, and did'not stop  It entirely, they are culpable, and that  le my argument against'them. I say  when the first legislation against the  Chinese coming: Into Canada was enacted,  If the fax had been made $500  CAR  REPAIllKRS ORGANIZE.
