SEMLIN'S    SPEECH    IN  'THE  '    HOUSE   ON ' THIS   MATTER.  Revelstoke to the front in the. Legislature--Big1 discussion on river  bank���������A review of the correspondence, the result���������The missing  letter produced.  \  'b.  ���������The protection of the river  bank  ;it,  RevelsLoke   claimed   considerable    attention  from   lhc   Legislature   during  the budget debate.   Mr. Senilin, leader  of tli������ opposition, discussing it remind-  '   ed the meiiibeisof the House thnt Revelstoke   was   ;i   flourishing   town   the  property  in   which   had   considerable  viilne.   A large  portion  of  thit  land,  valuable, enough to have found  inconsiderable portior. of Ihe fund necessary  '    for the  pioter-Lion/of  the  river bank  and preservation of the (own had been  .  washed away; and that destruction had  been watched for years bv the government without any alteuipt to an est il  re they holding they had no responsibility  in the matter.  Duriii}; the" season  of 1S9G  Lin:  Dominion   Government,   had   placed  the  'sum of $10,-500 upon their estimates for  preserving ' the   hanks conditional  on  the Provincial  Government   contributing a  like   amount.   This' happened  toward the latttei- part- of LSOG hut.  the  Finance Minister had  stated   he   had  never heard'of  ..hi- action ' until Jan.'  .   12, '07. when  the  Dominion   Engineer  wrote   asking   what    th������i    Provincial  , Government   intended   to-   do.     Mr.  Seinliu  pointed "out   that' the - notice  that the  Dominion   Government, had  made this conditionar grant  had   been  .  spread all over the country and all who  took an   inten-st in ' Provincial  affairs  ,, had seen it and   knew  the  conditions  attaching to it.    Yet in thc face  of all  this the. Finance MinL-tei had informed  '"   the House  that it   was  not   until   he  received the notice fioin tlie Dominion  Engineer on January 12t li that he knew  the Dominion Government h;-.d 'taken  such .action.    The  Piovineial   Govern1-'  meii.Vreply  was   significant.    It   did  not consider thai, Ihe government" of  The Province   had   any.  responsibility,  ,��������� wil h respect to the hank,'and the  protection of the town of Hevelstuke- was  purely a matter for the Dominion.  i'  Mr. Seiuliirthen spoke at  length  on  ' thu cor rcspondence  contained   in   the  ret urn on   the   matter.    Hc'enlaiged  ,  upon the Finance Minister's >*liiLi'ineiiL  that- he had not heaul of the action  of  the  Dominion   until  the  middle of   a  busy session, yet they had the   records  of the House  to show that the  B. O.  Government   had   correspondence   on  the matter as early as January   V2, '97,  and that, the House did not  meet  Ihat  year until February.    He sarcastically  asked the Finance Minister, what busy  session he referred to?   It was  clearly  not a. session of the 1 Legislature,   however, it might appea r( so from   the eor-  lespondence.    Mr. Semlii)'commented  upon the fact that the correspondence  between Messrs. Tartu and Turner' became more acrimonious and one  could  not read  the  correspondence  and  not  he struck with the lack of fairness "and  courtesy shown   by  Finance  Minister  Turner.      The   finance    minister    the  members should i (-member had neglected to   meet  the  overtures  of  the������Do-  ' minion and when they at Oltawa  had  to strike the l$10,500 from ther estimates  1 the Fill.nice Minister of the  Province  sought to place  the  responsibility for  his own  action   upon  the  Jlinister of  Public Works.    Then when he saw  he  hadmade a mistake iu not meeting the  'Dominion Government he visited Revelstoke-and  told   the   people   he   bad  changed ' his ( opinion   and   considered  the Province was responsible.   >  Hon. Mr. Turner���������-I deny that.  Mr. Senilin replied the denial did not  very much   mutter,   he   had   certainly  led the people of Revelstoke to   believe  that such was the case.    He then   read  thu  letter from   Hon. Mr.  Turte and  Hon. Mv. Turner's  reply  and   in   commenting  on   that   reply   .said   it   wns  evident that so long as (he member*, of  the present cabinet retuiiied control ol  affairs  in   British   Columbia   so   long  would the Province fail (o teccive  due  consideration from the Dominion Government.  If such proved (o hu ihe case  it would be altogether due to the manifest ill-nature of the Finance  Minister  and the members of  bis cabinet.    The  whole trouble between (lu* two governments was precipitated by the Finance  Minisler of the Province al tempt ing to  give Minister Taite  of the   Dominion  Goveriiinenl a   school-mistress,  lecture  upon manners.    He had taken tlie   undignified cotir.se of atl pting to   read  the Dominion Minister :i' lecluie upon  manners and sacrificed lbe interests oi  tbe Province to tin* gratification of his  personal spleen. Jn (���������nimting^he cost  of Ibis action Mr. Hemlin Siid thai it  would probably aiiioiini ((, Hie Province having lo siiind Hie full cost of  the woik. ' !,  Several   oilier   ineipbers  fo;,k up the  question,   notably Messrs. Macpherson  and Cotton.   '  Re the missing letter in the correspondence with which the Mail bad  l In- pleasure of supplying the legislature, it. also proved a subject of interest to the House, but space will not  allow it being dealt with this week  more than to say that hy the Vicioria  Times' report Pieinier Tinner was  surprised that it was not included.  Kellie's Koptenay Kow.  It was a Kootenay man, J. Fred  Hume, who made the motion of a  want of confidence in the government.  Kootenay, above any other district in  the province, has leason to be dissatisfied with the present state of things.  Our surplus is tif no u-.e to the country. The debt continues to glow, and  debt, as cveiyone knows, means taxation. ? Tnosc, too, 'who who pay most  revenue must naturally pay most taxation, and so Kootenay is calculated  to pay the piper fib- bad government,  financing, and generosity to pap fed  and somewhat iinnece-ss.-iry constituencies.  Ministers try  to ,jii,ike light of Kellie's Kootenay Kow, bul their jokes do  not hide the seriousness of the inattei  to West Kootenay.     It is being yearly  bled and allowed insufficient icpteseiiL-  ation   lest   it   .should   make   its  voice  heard too loudly in protest. ' The-pro-  cess of milking this district i.s not only  going    on    but    i.s   expected  to  continue.'as  witness   the   new   estimates  which   anticipate     that,   in   the.   next  fiscal year miner s'   licenses   will realize  $175,000. and  general   mining  receipts'  $105,000, a totiil on ' miners'   wages and  mine   owncts' .profits   of   $3-10,000,  or  nearly one. fourth   of the expected revenue of this province  from all sources,  or   an'amount   equal    to   one   third  of the, revenue received fiom  all   ](ll.,*il  sources,    such'  as   real estate and personal    piopcrly   taxes,   revenue taxes,  lumber rovallies, etc., etc.,.    The   mining "-eel ions "must,  rally  in   defense of  their industry ancl   demand equality of  taxation. ,  THE  CHINESE-JAPANESE   CLAUSE."  Interesting  Debate on. a Local   Rail-  ���������       way Bill.  , Duncan Lake Gol'd Commissioner.  .Provision is madi. in the estimates  for a new uold commissioner at Duncan Lake. This, is reported 'to have'  been ollered to Mv. Fauquier, of Nakusp,' probably in aloncineiii. for his  treatitienf/'of last winter. The muuili-  cent, sum to induce the new gold coin-  iiiissiouer (o reside in lbe .solitudes ot  Duncan Lake is $125 per month, not  neai-ly,so good as $1.3()>\vith RcveNtoke  comforts anil society. If this new  oflice is ,-irra'nged for Fauquier's promotion he doubtless feels extraordinarily well pleased at. such generous  lecognition of his sei vices.  The most storing part of the report,  about, this- new ofTiceis t hat the govei ntnent intends Ui create u new mining district with ������headquarteis at  Duncan Lake���������the new gold commissioner' must have something to, administer��������� and it will include the  inining divisions of. Lardeau and Trout.  'Lake, now tributary to and closely  connected with the Revelstoke office.  Hade and people. The Mail gives  this only as.i i-epoit, hut lest there he  any atom of foundation for it, il  should be checked ���������in time and the  Board of Trade have already moved in  tbe matter.  In the discussion of the Arrowhead  it Kootenay railway bill in the House  on Tuesday, Mr. Macpher-on, Opposition, moved to insert the anti-Chi-  no*-e-J,ipan<-s(- clause:- No Chinese or  Japanese person shall be employed in  the construction or operation of the  undertaking hereby authorized, under  a penalty of five dollai-s per-blny foi;  each and every Chinese or Japanese  person employed in emitraveurion of'  this section, to lie recovered on complaint of any person under the provisions of the " Summary Convictions  Art."-      , ,       ' <M  Mr. Hunter, Government, vigorously  opposed the'incorporatjon, of the new:  .section.      Mr.     Forster,      Opposition,  favored the clause.    Hon.   Mr.   Turner  thought ,it  a   serious   thing   for, this  province   Lo   pass such    legislation  as  pointed against a >i'rie,ndly   nation, the  .Japanese, even i if   it.  seems  to   be to  ,ourdisadv;uitage,   we   should,   for the  good of empire, crive way in this matter.'  Mi-. Seinlin,  Opposition,   would  discuss t-with   the   leader   of the government   the   isMje   of   the   good  of the  empire.    lie   reminded   the   House of  American-  legislation on   this  matter,  and said it'-'was  necessary  we have in  tliis province a population which cmld  compete in all matters with that of the1  United  States.     For  the good  of the  empire it was necessary  we should not  do  anything   to   exclude or make less  desirable the immigration from eastern  provinces or the  old  country, and the^  encouragement    of     Japanese   .immigration   wo'nld   do   this,'   as   it would  swamp   the  labor  market,   of   BiiLbh  Columbia  with  cheap labor and  prevent   white   people   coming    in.      He  favoied inserting the clause.  Mr.   Kennedy,   Opposition,    favored  Ihe cl.iu-e.  Mv. IXiggins, Opposition,.favored the  (la use. * ,  , Hon. Mr. Martin, Goveriiinenl,'opposed (he insertion of the clause in tlie  bill. By the leport quoted Mv. Martin  said: I have had all kinds of men on  my ranch. I have had men from On-  tai.io, the pro\ ince' where some'iif the  bonoiable gentlemen, came from, and  I'got Ibem veiy cheap. Some of- them  weie very good men indeed, but the  best man I ever bad on my raneli^ was  a Chinaman, who worked for $15 per  month. _  This i Iosed the debate and the clause  was* adopled upon a yote without a  show of hands.  Mi'. Sword inserted the security  clause and it was repoi Led complete  wiLh amendments. ' The company  have three years to build.  The second reading of the Coal  Mines Regulation Act, prohibiting the  employment underground of Japanese  ni well as Chinese, was carried by 17  Loo.

Mr. Turner's  'cabinet for his manly speech on the  budget debate. He told them plainly  that he would do what he could to <!������  ieat them, as if things continued as [  thev weie the country \\uuid shortly | *-ouu- ton-idi-i.ition.  become bankrupt.

' In ar-  living at. thi.-, .Mr. Kellie said that the  Kstiinat.es showed a deficit, on their face  of $.���������.!:>,(XX), and the House had (he7 a*--  siirance of I he Premier that't here was  an overdraft of about ������2r-0,(KX) at pres-i  ('���������nl, to' carry forward against Lh<- hi-1  coining yyai. .

The manner in which the Government  had apportioned the appropriations received considerable attention from Mr.  Kellie. He complained that the district  of Cassia r had not received proper attention from the Government. He said  there was no indication tliat the bulk  of the money,.expended ior public  works would be expended for the purpose of opening the country.

He held that the new di.--  dislricls were not a charge upon Lhe  Government as represented. It. was  the old settled districts Ihat, were not  paying I heir way. The Kstimales showed that/the expendiluies in these old  di.-tricLs were not with a view to opening up the country, hut as sop.- lo the  di-tricts for election purposes.

He reminded  the House  that   the  Government  \va.s>  apparently not, satisfied   with the vvon-  deiful   expaiiMon   in    the   tevcime   of  Kootenay, since it   in-isfed  upon   the  collection of the trade tax of' five   dollars upon ever} man who worked in   n  metalliferous mine.    Mr. Kejlie stated  that Kootenay was noL the only section  of the country iu which di.-ci-iminatioii  was practised.    He' produced   the coal  statistics for th(>  pa-t. four  years and  showed that the New Vancouver Coal  Company was disci im-riated against, as  compared with   the.   collieries   of   the  Diiiisniiiii* companies.    He'slated that  .   for the four years ending 1S!)7 the  two  collieries of  the  Dmisiimii- companies  contrihuted revenues a^f-reg-iting .$12,-'  371 oi-an average of $:j,(M2 |,er annum.  Fi-oui the Union  and   Wellington  collieries comhined (he coal uiined in   the  four years amounted to 2,HI,"j.S37  tons.  The   New Vancouver Company's col-  .liei-y, a colliery not.owned hy the Diuis-  iiiuirs, mined 1,372,010 Ions of coal during the same period, and paid iu   t.txes  '     for the font years .$] 1,7(50,  or  an  average per annum, of $3,002.    Mr.   Kellie'  pointed out. that  the  New   V.-incouvoi-  Coal Company mined  ahout   half the  coal,   hut   paid  more , laxe*-   than   the  Diinsuiuii* colliei ies.    He also  directed  attention to the fact  that   had, the  ,$o  (ax lieen collected from the men working in (he coal   mines'during the  font-  years, the Provincial  Treasury "would  have received $oo,01S.  While he was reading ciyer his figures  Mr.'Kellie wa* frequently interrupted  hy Dr. Walkem.and was forced to appeal to the Speaker to keep the inem-  her* for South Nanaiino in order. In  making tliis appeal Mr. Kellie said that  Dr. Walkeiu was full'of wind like a  balloon, and if some one --tuck a pin in  htm he would collapse. 'In di-posing  of th'e que-tion of the discrepancies in  the taxation of the rival coal companies  of ..Vancouver ' Island, Mr. Kellie  argued that the coal mines should he  placed in the same po-ition as the metalliferous mine.-, and taxed upon their-'  output. In this way all coal mines  would- he treated' alike. Mr.' Kellie  then attacked Dr., Walkem for having  voted in favor of the icteiition of the  trade tax upon the men working' in  the mini'-of Kootenay for wages. ' Jle  said that Dr.   Walkem   represented   a  i* -  pap-fed district, and in the face   of  (his  he had the nerve and the   gall, to  vote  r in favoi-of the tax   upon   the   working  miner-. ,    ,  In iliscus*-ing the matter of the Col-  uiiiliia River hank at Kevelstoke, lie  said, that the provincial government,  hy its neglect, was re-ponsihle for the  .condition of affairs at. Revel-stoke. He  reminded the House that, the Federal  government had agreed to co-operate  with the provincial government to the  extent of $10,.-/00. The piov.incial government refused to co-operate and the  result was that, the province was put  to the expense of doing the work  alone so far as any surety of the Federal government's co-operation was'  concerned.' He asked whether that  was business-like.  Mr. Kellie deinanded,'[infortnalion as  to the policy of the government  with  respect    to   the   Yukon   lailwav  mentioned in the speech   from   the throne.  He said he would  like  to  hear  the 11-  nance minister explain his policy with  regaid to this railway.     He held there  was no reason why the province should  .. vote one dollar in aid of a railway into  the Yukon country     He   held   that it,  was not a good  policy, for the province  to assi-st   railways   for   the purpose of,  opening up   the   Yukon.      He   stated  that the   Dominion - government   had  taken $7,IXHj,U..XJ out of  the Province in  10 years more than it had   returned   to  'it, and he held that such being the case  the Proviiue was not justified in voting  money in aid of a railway for the  purpose of developing the territory of the  Dominion  Government.    He   thought  it would he better  if  the  Government  would   hi ing down  a  vote of $2(K),0()()  for  the   purpose   of   opening   up   tin-  district, of Cas-iar,    He  said  that   he  would hold up both  hands  for such  a  vote because he believed   that,  the  resources of the district  wen. such   that  the expenditure would bring back good  returns.  He thought that, such a couise  Would' be   more* creditable  than   that  pursued by   the   Government,   in   the  framing of the present Estimates,  object of  which   was  to  buy   up  electorate of  (he   Piovince.    The  jiropriation of $:J0,(W0  for a  bridge al.  Kamloops could not be justified on any  ground unless it. was upon the doubtful  ground that it would make Ihe seal, of  the   Chief   Commissioner   more    sure  during   the   next   election   campaign.  The ISstimales  he  reported  were  not  framed i'or the purpose of opening  up  the country but for the next! Provincial  races.      The    appropriations     around  Kamloops were the grand pi i/.es which  were   offered   lo    the   people   of   that  district if they would  carrying   the    Chief  colors to win  the  raci  to the quest ion of tin  " Companies act, ISO:."
