Charles J. Clayton has returned home
from Brantford, Ontario, where he spent
the best part of a week in attendance
upon the seventeenth annual session of
the Dominion Trades and Labor Congress of Canada. This is by long odds
the greatest labor organization in the
Dominion, and the session just closed
drew close upon 100 delegates duly accredited from labor organizations from
one end of the Dominion to the other.
The purpose of tho congress is very
largely "that of shaping legislation to
be desired in the interests of labor and
in solidifying the entire country on
v issues conceived to be in the interests
of any onV of tlio provincial labor organizations. Tn speaking, of the recent
session Mr. Clayton1 =aid the feature
.which impressed him- .nost in connection with the 'congress was the conservatism of the officers and delegates.
Nothing appeared to be taken for granted, and questions upon' which there wan
much dilferenco of opinion were genei ally laid over. This was the case with respect to a resolution approving of the
system of compulsory -arbitration in
labor disputes. It was evidently a question upon which the majority of those
piesent "had not fully, informed themselves, and in the debate upon it the
opinion appeared i to ' be -. about evenly
divided '.with comparatively tew who
had pronounced opiii-.ns one way or
.the other. The result was that,the coni-
pulsorv resolution was laid over.
One "would hardly be prepaicd for the
statement that in a representative labor
congress there would be any difficulty
in securing the passage of a resolution
in favor of, the exclusion of Chinese and
Japanese, yet this very1 difficulty cropped
.up in the Brantford congress. This was
Claytoh,"*but-prior to introducing "it* lie
-undertook-to feel the .pulse of the delegates upon the question of Chinese and
Japanese, exclusion. The result was that
■" lie came .against all kinds of opposition
until he made his listeners familiar with
the conditions whicli obtain in this pro-
yince as the result of Chinese and Japanese    immigration    and    competition
with"»the whites  in the labor market.
A very common form of opposition wm
that taken by delegate., with strong religious   tendencies.   They  held  that  it
was contrary to the teachings of Christianity to ask for the exclusion oi" Chinese  and  Japanese,  especially  in  view
cf tlie fact that British 'subjects were
free to enter China and Japan, and the
probability was that they would resent
auy attempt made by'uie governments
of those countries to keep  them out.
Then there were those >vho opposed any
•drastic measure looking to the cxclu-
..sion sought by the,resolution for tlio
.reason that they were ignorant of the
■conditions' in  British Columbia.   Many
of these delegates were from towns .in
Ontario where there were but one or
two Chinamen,  engaged  chiefly  In tho
laundry business, and these delegates as
a rule, said they failed to see how the
immigration of Chinese could bo a dqt-
riment or at least how it could create
so  grave a condition as was reported
from British Columbia. _ljen there were
the delegates who from political motives
sought to side-track the resolution. The
ground'they took was that the govern-
men had appointed a commission to inquire  into   the   Chinese  and   Japanese
ciuestion  and   until   the  report  of  tho
commission was made public they contended that the question should be allowed   to  rest.   Those   were   important
forces to be conciliated as a necessary
step to ensure the passage of his resolution,  but  Mr.   Clayton  applied himself to the task and succeeded. The resolution as he introduced it favored 'the
Imposition of a $500 head tax upon Chinese   entering   the  Dominion,   and   in
order to overcome the prejudice against
legislation  discriminating against race
or color there was a clause added to the
effect that it was only by the enactment
of a minimum wage that a solution of
the cheap labor problem could be had.
The Japanese were  dropped  from' the
resolution for the reason that there was
not the slightest chance from the Infor-
.mation available that legislation of this
character  against the  Japanese would
be tolerated by either tbe federal or im-
T.eria.1   governmets.   In  this  shape  the
resolution   finally   secured;   the  hearty
■support  of  the congress,  the  negative
■Vote being le*. than ten per cen..
Another matter of province import-
rncc which received the attention of tho
congress .was.a resolution approving■ ol
the printing-of-public rcliool text books
"by the - several .provincial • governments.
In the discussion of this resolution it
•was pointed out that titere was no book
printed -.in.- Ontario-;with. _i. circulation
-ecraal to that of. the public .pphool text
bboks that cost so -much as tho scboo ••
"books did. From this it was argued that
the monopoly of-(the school printing iv
•Ontario had not resulted in cheap school
'Ij'boks, and it was fair pj> assume that;
'by the government entering upon the
•printing itself the province -.ven.ild not
•only secure better books, but cheaper
ibooks. as well.
Ja cDanectionjrith tne representation
of the several provinces, in the congress,
Mr. Clayton said British Columbia cut
a very small figure, there being.but five
dolega.es present //from.'-.-: this province.
Ontario has far and away the big end
of the representation in the congress.
This was ih a measure due/to the fact
that labor was more thoroughly organized in the premier province than in
any of the others. Another very noticeable thing In connection with the delegates present at the recent session*was
the circumstance that upwards of thirty
of them were men connected with the
press. As a class the press men greatly
outnumbered any other class of. workers. The next' session of the congress
will be held in Berlin, Ontario. In the
voting on this the British Columbia
mon made a rustle, with the result that.
Nelson stood second on the list as the
place' for the next congress. >  .

mistaken him for some one involved in'
the troubles of the afternoon, as Baird'
is very peaceable and inoffensive. He
has taken no part in the strike and is
not known to have a single enemy in
town. Baird was badly bruised about
the head and face and'had'all of his
ribs broken on one side. He was uncon-
cious for several hours and the injuries
are considered very serious, but it is
thought that he will recover. No arrests
have been made, as it has been impos*

COLON, October .8:—Forces of liberals
numbering about 250 attacked Moro,island, commanding the Entrance to the
port of Tumaco, i September 24th: The island had, all along been garrisoned,
with,less than, 100 troops, well supplied
with,.arms, ammunition and stores, including more than 150 nead of cattle
and other provisions in proportion. The
landing was effected before 'daybreak
by means of canoes. Simultaneously the
island was stormed from the other end
by liberals pn the .mainland. Morro island is surrounded by shallows rand
banks and the only means of approaching' the island is by the narrow river,
which is in easy range pf the island.
The. British steamer Quito, bound from
Guayaquil, Ecuador, for Panama and
touching at ports between, anchored off
Morro island on the n.-ght of September
16th"and weighing'anchor at daybreak
started ud the stream towards Tumaco.
The liberals fired across her bows:
Suspecting the" situation she' immediately'turned, but rifle shots and one cannon
continued to be fired at her, the former
striking her several times and the latter once, the ball making, a hole 1 ight
through her at the water mark, though
the damage in other respects was slifht.
The Quito then steamed to the farthest point the tide would permit and

the liberals,'having discovered the imprudence 'of their.'action. It is significant that'shortly after-the Quito incident became known the, British warship
Icarus.left Panama for a destination not-
made public," but probably Tumaco. The7
steamship agents have been officially notified to accept freight."-at; that point.'*

Episcopalian   Convention.
SAN FRANCISCO, October 8.—At .today's session of the ".triennial Episcopal "convention the morning prayers m
the .house of deputies were conducted
by bishop Partridge of Kyoto, assisted
by Rev. James Winchester of St. Louis
The house was called to order by president Lindsay. The flrst matter to come
up was a motion to correct a report and
error in the vote taken yesterday on the
amendment of article X of the constitution. This gave rise to considerable discussion." The change of the vote of Ne-
tcred in the record,1 resulted in defeat
of the amendment. In tbe formal opening of the house today a rule proposed
by the committee on rules was adopted
providing that no new business shall be
introduced after Saturday, October 12th,
except by permission of a two-thirds
vote. The committee reported as follows
on memorials from Milwaukee and Colorado that the name .of the,church as it
appears on the title page of the prayer
book be changed: That, as a constitutional amendment would be required,
the whole matter should be referred to
a special committe appointed by the
chair. The committee further reported
a recommendation that they concur in
the action of the bishops providing for
marginal readings; also that they could
not advise the authorization of an edition of a revised version in the reading lessons. The committee reported
that in the opinion of the committee
the table of lessons was not a part of thn
prayer book in the sense that the general provision for the amendment of the
prayer book applied to it.
J. P. Morgan presented a memorial
from the church clubs of New York and
other cities in regard to a bishopric in
the Philippines. The delegation from the
Canadian church was brought into the
house of deputies hy, the committee appointed for the purpose, accompanied
by a number of bishops and presented
by the bishop of Kentucky.
Reduction in Sugar Rates.
SAN FRANCISCO, October 8.—Another aggressive move has been made
by the American Sugar Refining Company In tho campaign ^vhich it has begun against the beet, sugar industry.
The cut in the price*: _'of; granulated
sugar to all Missouri river points, which
.ya.s announced last'-yrepl/i, has,been followed by a reduction In the price of cane
sugar in all states from Colorado to
California. Tlio reduotion announced
by the Western Sugar Refining Company,
which. is 'allied with the American Sugar Refining Company, amounts to 30*
cents* a hundred on beet sugar and 20
cents a hundred on cane sugar.
Robert Oxnard, vice-president of the
American Beet Sugar Association, in
speaking about the latest reduction
said:; "It Is a fact that the Western
Sugar Refining C-Jbipany has made a
decline of 20 cents per hundred on their
cane sugar and 30 cents per hundred on
theii beet sugars. This makes the difference in their price between cane,
granulated and beet 20 points instead of
10 as heretofore. The cut affects all
markets from Colorado to California inclusive. I know of no change on the'
general sugar situation to account for
It.' Further than this I do not care to
discuss the matter at present." In order
to' discriminate further against beet
sugar the Western Sugar Refining Company announces that it will entertain
no. orders for granulated sugar which
call for over 50 per cent of'-beet sugar.
•The reduction in prices has also affected
Hong Kong sugar, of which there is a
small supply in this market

charge of high treason, was arraigned
in'the extradition "court at Bow Street

today charged with high treason and

hour* armistice on the plea that street
1 fighting would thereby be obviated, and
utilized that period m getting .all the

Europe and applied to Dr.-jLeydfe'/the.

and had urged the necessity, of shooting oi  otherwise disposing "of Douglas

Address all letters���  THE   TRIBUNE   ASSOCIATION,   Ltd.  John Houston, Manager. Nelson, B.' C.  The assertion that any man in British  Columbia is- able to scare capital from  the province is utterly absurd. As a  matter of fact, British Columbia, as a  whole, was never in a more prosperous  condition than it is today. More mines  are being worked and more men are employed in mines than at any time since  quartz mining became an industry in  the province. That there are mines not  shipping ,to their full capacity, and  others not shipping at all, is not because of either lack of capital or lack  of faith in the future of the country. It  is because the price of lead and silver,  taken in connection with the grade of  ore produced, will not return a reasonable profit, or because owners have neglected to keep development work w,ell  ahead of their stoping operations.

ERRORS LOST THE -FIGHT  ���i*'  <!'  h  |\  I'.  li  ��<*-  I nf ^  \  New Burdens for Workers.  It is perfectly proper that president  Gompers, of the American Federation of  Labor, and the United Mine Workers of  America   should   take   steps   to   meet  charges made by  president  Shaffer,  of  tho Amalgamated   Association of Iron,  Steel and Tin  Workers, and they,  by  commission and omission, were largely  responsible for the loss of the steel strike  and the course they have taken to vindicate themselves is wise    They,  refrain  from 'discussing the  matter   in   public,  fearing  to   prejudice   the   trade   union  cause, but they ask to be tried by their  peers..    They   demand   that   piesident  Shaffer shall select three men Irom a  long list of representative and responsible labor union officials m no way affiliated with either Gompers or Mitchell's  organizations, so that the charges and  the replies be heard.    In their formal  joint letter to Shaffer, Gompers and Mitchell declare that* if these judges, after  hearing all the facts, shall decide that  Shaffer's charges are substantiated, then  they, the  defendants,  will resign from  their official positions.  Mr. Shaffer's statements are serious.  They are that Mr. Gompers was authorized to negotiate a peace agreement for  the Amalgamated Association with Mr.  Morgan, and,that although the financier  gave up his vacation -and* remained in  New York to meet him th.e'president of  the, federation for some unexplained  reason never went near him. . Morepver,  Shaffer intimates that money to support  the strike was promised by the Federation, vand he says that not one cent was'  received. ���*-.���-,-     >   _  SHAFFER'S ACCUSATIONS.  Shaffer says that Mitchell asked him  to make a peace proposition, and that  if the trust would not accept it then  that he, Mitchell, would call out the miners, and that he felt suie that Mr."Sargent- would call out the trainmen on"  strike also; that Shaffer, supported by  his executive board,.made such a proposition, which the trust managers rejected,' and that theiKMitchell neglected'  t&'caUTout theTmin-_rs*as he .had'-promised," notwithstanding"* (Shaffer says)  that "thousands" lof "miners assured the  Amalgamated officials, that they were  ready to strike.  Charges like these'cannot be"* allowed  to stand without seriously, impairing-  the reputations of men whose character  has hitherto stood unquestioned in the  community, and Mr. Shaffer has not been  given an'opportunity to piove or to w lth-  ���"vdraw what he has so explicitly stated.  u)n their face the charges are'preposterous,' and 'the public will be slow to  give them credence. Pending a complete  review of the whole matter all that may  be said*-is that Mr. Shaffer, humiliated  and embittered' by the" defeat, cannot  consider thematter with'judicial eyes,  but sees all things in distorted form,  and places responsibility for the loss of  the battle where responsibility does not  belong. ^  When the battle was on was^not the  _time_for_criticism_of_po]icy_orlaction;  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  three per cont. .   . .    ���  GRANGE V. HOLT,    .  Manager Nelson Branch.  .\.  but now that it is a thing of the past we  may point to Shaffer's first, and pei haps  V. fatal, tactical error.    He failed at the  .outset to properly place his case before  the public.   His case briefly this* About  twenty per cent, of the workers in the  .ran,-steel and tin industries are what  are .ailed skilled men, and it is among  ���these that the Amalgamated Association  ���finds Its members, although at the beginning of the strike it had only a part  ���of them within its   ranks.     But   inasmuch as the union rate of wages is, generally   speaking,   twenty-five   per   cent  higher than the wages paid in the un-  ��� unionized mills, an effort to have union  wages   paid   to   all   skilled   workmen  would, if successful, work   an  obvious  betteiment to that entire class of labor.  It would  tend to draw all the skilled  men together into a strong organization,  ���and   tend ' sooner   or   later' to    bring  about  better conditions  for tho eighty  per   cent   of  unskilled  laborers  upon  t whom the skilled men depend.   Wages  among these unskilled laborers are low,  most of them getting a   dollar   a   day  when they work and none of them more  than a dollar and a half; and the hardships and dangers in all the departments  of these related industries are such as to  fill hospitals and shorten life.  ACTUAL CONDITIONS .UNKNOWN.  The  public  knows  little  or  nothing  about   the   average   circumstances   ot  labor in these industries. It hears merely,  and  in* a  vague  way,  that highly  ..killed men arc needed in steel making,  and that these men get high pay. From  tins most men conclude that practically ail labor in tbe iron, steel and tin-  making   vocations    is    highly    skilled  and higly paid, instead of which is the  tact ��� the  great  mass  being unskilled  _<nd the average of wages, considering  tne haidskjps to be borne, being very  Jow.  The great outside public has its own  .grievances against the trusts, and particularly against the United States Steel  and Iron Corporation. It would have  -very leadily given its support to the  ���.steel strike had Mr. Shaffer explained  what he sought to do was to better the  -conditions of the steel workers, just as  it gave the anthracite coal miners its  .backing. When Mr. Mitchell explained  xhat the average of mine -workers'  j| -wages was $250 a year, and that what  ij. le asked was only 10 per cent advance.  3__e public knows too well about thei  monopoly profits of the trust' combinations, and Mr. Shaffer could have had '  as Mr. Mitchell did have, the tremendous power of public opinion to work in  his behalf. But the president of the steel  workers  neglected  to  avail  himself of-  this potent aid. Instead of winning the  public-he prejudiced it against his cause.  He said that his men were satisfied withi  their wages and their hours, that what  they weie contending for was their organization. -  WORKING CONDITlU-VS WIN 'OUTSIDE SYA1PATHY. - .,  Now it ought to be plain that the public caies nothing whatever for a labor  organization por se, that .-it cares everything for the conditions under which  men work���that; in fact, it regards most  labor organizations as tyrannical, and  out of harmony with the principle of'  freedom���the freedom of the employer  to buy his labor on whatever terms he  may. The reason why such labor organizations are tolerated is that there are  organizations of'monopoly and concentrated capital on the employers', side,  and' not to give laborers.a corresponding right pf organization would be to put  them at a disadvantage, and hence'might  subject them to a reduction of wages  and an extension of working hours.  It is, therefore, not for the labor organizations'but for the working conditions that the public has consideration,-  and for Mr. Shaffei to say that he had'  called a great strike not to protect or  better   wages j or. other   conditions .of  work, but only to protect his organization, not ���-only lost his cause the approval of the average outside'fair-minded  man;  it turned that man against him.'  The next'great   tactical   mistake   in  this strike (perhaps it--was the first'in  the order_.of time) was in-the way Mr.t  Shaffer made his demand.   I'have now  reason to believe that the trust managers were right as to an essential, point*  which I ,have hitherto   denied   because  Mr.   Shaffer   explicitly   contradicted   it.'  I now more than,suspect, that Shaffer  demanded at the" outset that'the trust  managers should*-sign'-the1 scale for'-all  the mills with the -condition1 .that-thfey.  compel rall their employees tb join the'  union.'   The trust managers refused to  do-this. -"They, were willing, however,  to sign the scale for alljthe organized  mills and to agree to pay union wages  in all the other mills, also promising to  permit the organization of the men in  any of the non-union mills.   In the face  of his very"weak organization,' hie low  funds and of his slim chances for outside support,  discretion   surely   should  have prompted Mr. Shaffer to accept the  trust offer.   It gave him an advance of  wages for the non-union workers among  the skilled men, and with the prestige  of   that   splendid   accomplishment  the  Amalgamated' -Association   could   have  drawn all the skilled Iron, steel and tin  workers  into   its   ranks,  just   as  'the.  United'   Mine" workers' " organization,  which commenced the hard coal strike  with less' than eight per cent of the coal  workers in its membership,   after   the  strike   victory   entirely   organized   the  hard coal fields. . .  $2,600,000  $1,850,000  H.

The results, from whatever cause  or causes, are', a. heavy setback for the  trade union and a hardening of condi  tions'for the workingmen in the three  related .industries   embraced    by   the  United States   Steel   Corporation.    The  Amalgamated   Association'has  already  lost half of its members through defection,'and-Mr- Shaffer has agreed not to  attempt to recruit for a year.   Thus the  organization is worse off than it was before the fight began, while many of the  men are individually worse off as a consequence of the fight, for   fewer   mills  will come under the scale than came under it last year.   Not only has the1 advance ground offered at the outset by  tho trust managers been lost, but some  of the rear ground has been lost as well.  And what labor haa lost  one   of the  greatest of the trusts���Indeed   a   trust  whose managers control other monopoly  combinations���has gained.   It is another  encroachment upon   labor,   along  with  the injunction principle applied everywhere, and decisions of courts like that  recently made in New York in the contract labor cases.   There may be wonder  that the trust did not take a more summary and complete victory,   for   from  , what now appears it had opportunity to  do so. "Yet any who know   the   trust'  managers know that they are extremely  able and shrewd men.    Moreover, they  have the weight of the shareholders to  make them conservative in action. They  know of the popular animosity to trusts,  and they must naturally fear that a1 too  great and apparent setback of laboring  men would tend to inflame public passion.   So they rest satisfied with a victory that yields the maximum of advantages at the minimum of cost.���Henry  George, Jr., in Philadelphia North American.   .  anyone shows a '"disposition to. slight hisj  pet.        ,       __      "    Ahu'7 ....-,*_. ->},s ' -,.

The bill was originally -fpr close  upon $200", but the plaintiffs abandoned  all but ?9987 of it in order, to come within ' the jurisdiction of the small debts  court. The defense entered to the action  was that Marks was not responsible for  the financial obligations of the church.  The weight of the evidence showed that  Marks was present when the lumber  was ordered and that he in a measure,  went good for the amount, which-was,  entered up against him in the company's  books at the time.

Strachan, city clerk, received a  telegram yesterday, announcing the.  death of his son in San Francisco, Harold J. Strachan. The news of the death i  came as a great shock to the parents.  The deceased left Nelson about four  months ago for California with a view  to improving his health. The change  was beneficial and a short time .SO he  secured a good position in Red Bluff,  near San Francisco, Intending to make  hiB home there for a time at least. The  deceased was 26 years of age, and during his residence in this city was engaged with his brother in tho plumbing  business. Latterly he sufEered from hernia, for which complaint he was operated upon in this city last year. On  Saturday Rev. J. B. Morgan received a  letter from him stating that he was  suffering from a second attack of the  same complaint and announcing his intention of going into the St. Mary's hospital at San Francisco for treatment,  in which institution it is presumed his  death occurred. The deceased was an  active worker in the Baptist church. He  was a general favorite with the young  people, and his energy and devotion to  church matters endeared him to the entire congregation, who unite with his  parents in mourning his death. The body  will arrive in Nelson on Saturday for  burial.  An application for summary judgment was made yesterday before judge  Forin in the case of Mourgues vs the  Chapleau Mining Company, an action  for $2000 for breach of contract and  damages. The bulk of the claim is for  six months' salary at ?300 per month.  One of tha grounds set out t��y t_-e  plaintiff to show that his .contract with  the Chapleau company had been broken  was that the Chapleau company con-  templatedi amalgamating with another  company which would have a board of  ten directors, of whom only two were  directors in the Chapleau company..  In this amalgamated company , the  plaintiff claimed the Chapleau company  would hold but one tenth of the stock,  and that the technical management of  the Chapleau, for which he had been  engaged, would be attended to from  New York.

Allan Forrester arrived in Nelson last  evening from Robson. He brought in a  prisoner named Michael Smith, whom  he arrested at West Robson on the  strength of a telegram from E. J. Lowery, deputy sheriff of Republic. Smith  is said to be wanted on the charge of  stealing ?800. At the time of his arrest  Smith had $479 upon his person. He denied that he' had stolen the money, but  said he had found it in the hen house of  a man named O'Brien, for whom ho was  working a short distance out of Republic. Constable Forrester made the arrest a short time after he received the  telegram upon the description sent. He  got his man at West Robson. It is believed that Smith was on his way to  the Coast to ship for the Philippines,  where he saw service with the United  States troops.*-'  A  VISIT   OF   INSPECTION  By a Deputy Minister.  Collingwood Schreiber, deputy minister of railways and canals, arrived ,in  Nelson last evening. He will take'a trip  over the Procter extension today in com-  ;p"aiiy with John D. Sullivan, the C. P.  R. engineer in charge of- construction.  It is two years since Mr. Schreiber has  been in Nelson, his last visit being "in  connection with his inspection of the  .Columba & .Western lines, and he is  very much impressed with the'progress  which Nelson has made in that time.'  Mr. Schreiber lias grown old in his present office, and is probably the best  versed man in the Dominion on its fail-  ways and ,canals. As a department man  he has views which the practical politician can hardly be expected to countenance. Railway promoters may fool  the people, but they will hardly fool  the deputy minister of railways and  canals. There are none who know better, than he how the'governments of the  day are" worked, but as he has only to-  do with the manner in which the contracts made are carried' out, and not  .with the making of the contracts, he  does' not come into conflict with the  promoters. If>he did it would probably  be better for the country. In the course  of his duties as deputy minister of railways he has come upon railway schemes  in which-one man has been the whole  works, the contractor for the road', the  promoter, the chief stockholder, and the  entire executive. In one case the road  in question was.'one of which there was  no possibility .of the scheme ever paying any adequate' return upon the money  required"for it's 'cohstrut'ejon. To the'ordinary mind ft looked'as/if every dollar  that went into,the venture was V.dollar  lost, but the promoter and the deputy  minister, whe4rit'came to him, knew dif-_  ferent. It was;one'of those cases where  the federal government had -been  touched for a''good fat subsidy,' and in  which the subsidy of the* government  had been supplemented by a generous  vote from the prbyincial legislature.  The combined subsidies were sufficient  to" _ build the road.' This was clear, to  most people who took the'trouble to figure the matter out, but "even here it was  difficult for the ordinary mortal to see  where* the promoter's profit came in,  since the road after it was built did  not promise to pay the cost of axle  grease. It was a case which came directly before the attention of the deputy  minister. He put the question to the  promoter. Tbe'answer was frank: ."The  federal government's subsidy, together  with what I receive from the local leg-  islature will build thv ro'ad. I am still  free to issue bonds. I can let the bondholders take the road'" Mr. Schreiber  did not say whether the bondholders  still own the road in question or not,  b,ut the case is not more glaring than  ��� some of the railway schemes that have  been launched In this province.  Manifest, however, as is the injustice  ���wrought to the country by railway subsidy hunters, it is & matter with which  it Is veiy difficult to ,cope. Once the  railway is built it appears to be easy  for the company to evade any condition that Is Imposed upon It. This is  true of the United States as well as  ���of Canada. The conditions Imposed upon  tho New York Central was a case in  point. With respect to this railway it  was stipulated that when the earnings  of the road exceeded G per cent that  the state should share in them. This,  upon its face was a very desirable condition for the state. But it did not bother the men in chargo.of the railway.  Whenever there was a prospect of the  state sharing in the profits of the road  sufficient water was added to the stock  to avert such a national calamity, and  in the opinion ot the deputy minister of  railways It was good betting that the  management of the road will never be  short of the necessary water to, prevent  any lightening of the state taxation by  reason of the diversion of the railway  earnings to the state exchequer. It was  one thing for the govenrnment >tb impose a condition upon the railway company, but it was an altogether different  thing to impose it so that the managers  of the railway could not get around it  Nelsou MinibK Division Records.
