It  is time this- sort of unjust discrimination was ended. . Wealthy  railway corporations are as able to  pay 'on the fair -value of their  property ,as are the masses of the  people. '   '' <  What is true of British Columbia is true of Canada as a whole.  The taxation paid by the"C. P. K.  in Canada averages JijGO a mile,  while ,on-its^ American branches  the'p.' P. K. pays just eight times  as much per mile as it does on its  Canadian,,lines. Why should this  be? The railway,companies levy  e.vcessivc^rates and make enormous  profits. They should, be required  to contribute their fair share lo the  taxation of the country in thc same  way as are the farmcrfvmerchants  and artisans.

While, we  spouse tlie,'liberal cause we base  our support -of that cause on fads  and principles, ,and ask that the  merits of the respective parties and  their policies be argued from these  points,of view in a fair and'reason-  able spirit.

" One  oi tlie most impprtant lines for  which thev have provided ,a liberal  s'tilj-idy is the Midway-Vernon  railway, which will open up one of  the- most furtile tracts of country  iu the province.

And this surplus was produced not by grinding  taxation but by., lessening the  burden on the people.       '  .  Under, liberal rule tlie government railways and the post.qfiicc  have been' brought,, to show-fsur-  pRises instead -'oi their .former  deficits, and-,yet postage and the  railway tariff have'been- simultaneously reduced.-  ?���������   - ,,���������  Jt is true tho tories accuse the  liberals of extravagance, but wliile  numeious public scandals and investigations accompanied the lory  regime,' no.-such conditions of  affairs has', attended -tlie liberal  adininistration'at Ottawa.

The  people want and demand, public  expenditure, and.it is necessary for  'the,development of thc -country.  They want railways", public 'buildings,' river improvements and' a  hundred other public conveniences,'  and the Laurier government has"  been able to do much in thib"\lir-  ection. ������������������  , Our conservative friends- charge  'tlie liberal party with enormously  increasing the public.de'bt.. What  are the'facts '? r For -IS vears the  conservatives added to the public  debt an avoiage of six and a 'half  millions a j year.-- In the. whole  seven years rule the Laurier government has not added to' the  public debt as much-as the conservatives did in otic year of 'their  IS years of ������,powcr.*v, <The loan  floated by thc government in 1S97  showed the liberals had raised the  ciedit of this country'in the worlds  money market to as high a stand-  aid as lhat of tho mother counlrv  lieiself. >    '  , Under the high tariff, policy of  the conservative party the 'trade of  Canada increased by"three and a  ha'Jf million a year,, but, un'dei  Jibcraloi-ule it has- increased 32  hirllions a vear, ��������� - ���������- . ��������� ������"���������,  j Then our tory friends appeal lo  ���������race and religious piejudices.

Among many  example."  of  the  gross injustice with which taxation  i='   levied    in   this     country     the  partiality shown   the railway companies   by   our   public  men is the  most noticeable.     t'nder  the  notorious   McBride   government   assessment   act   railway   companies  pay taxation on 110,000 a mile for  property   which     the    companies  value at over .150,000 a mile.     The  farmer or artisan is shown no such  consideration.    He has to   pay  on  half million.-.
