.  The Oliver government has been
completely   .exonerated     on   all
charges brought against it by the
Provincial party,  according to the
report  of   Mr. .Justice   Galliher,
commissioner,  issued in   Victoria
on Tuesday.    In  these words his
lordship-summarizes his findings:
f   "I find nothing iti the evidence
in thisenquiryftb warrant the imputation that there; was' anything
dishonest,, or  any dereliction   of
dlaty,'6r. disregard..of the public interests, or waste, ;.extravagence - or
incorflpetence in the. carrying out of
this work.by. the government.    In
conducting a work of. this magnitude: it would  be   astonishing   if
some errors or mistakes  were not
made,  and perhaps I might say,
more thorough methods in some instances might have been adopted,
bat ori the whole,  considering the
handicap: that' those carrying   on
railway construction': during these
year.8 labored under, it. is  not surprising that, the work, has cost the
country large sums of money."
f  Mr. Justice Galliher 7 begins his
report by dismissing the Provincial
party's charge that - Hon: -William
Sloan,, minister  of mines;; in the
Oliver government, and Hon. W.
J.. Bowser,: Conservative  leader,
accepted:, .$50,000 7 apiece-   from
PacificfGreat Eastern railway conr
tractors, and that as a result, these
contractors were accorded favorable
treatment in the legislature.   7

in their lot with the Conservative

On behalf of the Provincial Party.7,.
I beg to state that this is abso- Xz
lutely   without   foundation   andf.f
these   rumors   must   have   been 7 ���
originated by the proproganda of 7
our    opponents,    to   whom,   no    .
doubt, "the wish was father to the- ;
thought".    The Provincial Party
has no intention of amalgamating   ..'
with either of the two old Parties- /
and has no desire  tobe  tainted-,.'

Mr. Lachmund is endeavoring to

Jewelled Map Of Fiance
Presented  to   Nation   by  Late  Czar  ot
Muring the Palis Exposition of lyim
the ihen Czar of Russia presented io
the French nation the "jewelled map"
of France. It is not only priceless,
bin unique, because many of the precious stones employed io make ii are
found in Russia alone, and every one
found in ihose days was the properly
of the imperial treasury.
The map, which is now in the
I.ouvre. I'aiis, is foriy iuelu-s square.
Tin- wal'-rs of the oceans are represented by a whitish-gray marble. The
groundwork of the general design is
jasper. Portions     uf     neighboring
countries are uniformly shown in
slaie eolon.'d jasper; but the various
deparlnienl.s of France, eighty-seven
in all al thai, day, are done in many
colors and gradations of color from
pure while to deepest red.
II must noi be supposed that the
pieces of jasper (hat represent (lie
departments have been shaped, ���'anyhow.-' They follow faithfully the
oui lines laid down in official maps ot
the country. So cunning i.s tlie workmanship that no joints _:how at the
boundaries, au I the eighty-seven
pieces have beer: fitted together with
artistic regard (o the effect, produced
by the contrasting nnd blending colors.
The rivers of France are Humorous
and long. In this map they are duplicated by threads of platinum that,
���sunk iu (lie polished jasper, shine like
silver. But to most visitors the chief
attraction of the map is the hundred
and six precious stones that mark the
eiiies and towns���these places being
indicated also by their name embossed in,.letters of soiid gold.
Naturally, tlie eye travels to Paris,
and there it stops, enchanted by the
sight of a magnificent ruby that must
be worth a. small fortune. It is probably the finest and most valuable
stone in the whole map;
Away norlh is Lille, a trifle smaller
in size, than the ruby���not a diamond
as it appears but a phenacife, a variety of rock crystal that ls very rare.
Bordeaux is anoilu-r large gem that all
would mis take for a diamond. It is

Ottawa.���"I. utterly deny and repudiate that tliere lias been any bargaining between this group and any other
f.Toup in this House," said Kobert
Forke, Progressive leader, in the
course of the budget debate referring
to statements made in the House and
ou the political platform that the gov-
i rnineni had bargained with the Progressives for. their support.
"So far as I know," added Mr.
b'orkc, "no group in this House is
under any obligation to support any
other group, So far as I am concerned, I am pledged to support no
Group except lhe one which did mo
lhe honor to make me lis loader.
"1 stated in the opening of the session lhat the government would get
Progressive support when it brought
down Progressive measures. 1 repeat
that slatement today."
Ife would not vote i'or the Woodsr
...worth amendment because it meant
nothing. To support it would compel him to vote against the budget,
which he believed to be better for
the country than the "mere gesture"
contained in the amendment.
"If   anybody "in   this House thinks
- that the Progressive-" movement- is
done, he is vastly mistakeu," continued Mr. Forke.. "In Gr.eat Britain
progressive government is an accomplished fact. in the United
States there is a drasifc change-impending, in the system of governments
We of this group see brighter things
Tlie Progressive leader then commented on conditions in" Europe, the
reports that population was increasing and production decreasing, 'and
expressed the opinion that building
up tariff walls would not help, to solve
Europe's ' problems. He deprecated
the idea that, Canada should follow
Europe's example in the tariff. Britain, whatever anybody might say,
was free trade. The comparison made
by thc Conservatives between Canada
and thc United Siatos was not reasonable. The United States had the
