^ What  Ihe  Scheme   Will
A feature of the discussion of the
(iiaiid Truhk Pacific sohoine is the attempt of the machine press to minimize lho ini| oiiiini question of the
cost to the people, When the Grand
I runk Hail way Company   evinced   n
desire lo cnler the Not til West, il
approached the Ottawa government
and slated ill a petition which it pre-
si nted thai it was prepared, with
reasonable aid, to build a line ,,t' railway from North Hay to the Pacific,
and to agree to terms under which
the business of the road should be
brought to Canadian ports. The
company, if subsidized, would have
made Montreal, Quebec, Halifax, und
St. John its Eastern outlets
The cost lo the country uf this pro
positioi. would have been us follows;
Bonus for a   railway  from
North Hay to the Pacific
coast, 2,400 at $6,400 a
inille §15,300,000
Now, there are lines already in operation between North Day and Winnipeg. One of these—the Canadian
Northern, from Port Arthur, was
bonused by us on the distinct understanding that when the Grand Trunk
wished to get into the West it should
have the right to use it, on reasonable terms. A wise Government, in
aiding the Grand Trunk to enter the
West, might have said to it that it
had better use, until its business began to cull for a new line, the rails
already in existence between North
Hay, Port Arthur and Winnipeg. In
that case the Grand Trunk would
have reached Winnipeg at once, and
would have had to build only from
that city. The aid for a road from
Winnipeg west would bine been
llontis from   Winnipeg    to
the   coast,    1,1500    miles
at $0,400,1 mile 1*0,000,000
The Grand Trunk could thus have
been carried into the Went for SO,-
000,000, or $15,3(10,000, according to
the agreementi and, as the application of the company shows, the pub
li,.- aid would have secured a contract
under which tho Eastern business ,,f
the company would be handed over
to the Intercolonial at Montreal to bo
carried to Canadian ports. The
scheme, ns thus outlined, would havo
given competition in rules, and wouid
have opened up new tcrritovyeconom
icully to ihe country. Wc should
have        had        an nil-Canadian
rullto, and our own Govet'limeill road
would haic SCCUl'ed    business,    while
i »■ r own p,,iis would have got trade.
'Ihe l.-iurier Go.'urnmenf would nol
bine thi-. There was no jobbery in
it. There wen- no offices for hungers1
nil, and no contracts to sweat,
Hi ilu- Ministers th,' admission of
the Grand Trunk into th" West on
-u, li reasonable terms was stoutly ,.'-
sinicd,    If lho company insisted upon
going ill, III SO small n cost to the
i am. I V, it should hot go    ill    at    all.
Then enmo ihe Government Scheme,

Trunk a bonus of $26,000,000. This
grant is made, not by taking the money out of the public treasury, but by
authorizing the printing of stork to
that amount and the passage of such
stock, free of charge, over to the
Grand Trunk company. This pro,-ess
of subsidizing is insidious and novel,
t'h.e (love,-nine,it says to the (.hand
Trunk: "We cannot very will give
you §25,000,0,01) in cash, as we are
really building the road ut the public
expense. Hut we will authorize you
to receive stock to the tune of $25,-
000,000, without paying one cent for
it." The public provides the cash
and credit with which to build the
road. The company gets §25,000,-
000 of slock for nothing, and draws
profits upon it.
The first expense we have, then, is
this grant of $25,000,000- as much
cash as the country gave for lho construction of the Canadian Pacific
liailway-s|is a bonus to the company,
Having given 825,000,000 to ditto the company we proceed t.. build
for tho company a line of railway
1,1.00 miles long between Mmicton
and Winnipeg. One feature of ihis
line is the fact that it runs parallel to
our Government railway—the Intercolonial, between Quebec and Monc
ton, Its purpose is to take away the
business of tho Intercolonial and lo
make the road cost the country more.
What the damage will be it is dilli*
cult to estimate, bul it will be very
considerable, The line between Quebec and Moncton cannot be In,ill for
one cent less than $40,000 a mile. Its
1,000 inih s will cost us  175,000,000,
It will take eight or ten years to
build, and .luring that period the
money placed iu it will lie idle. The
interest on' the money employed during construction will be ut least $10,-
000,000. When the line is completed wc lease it to the Grand

There is probably as much interest
manifested in the operation of the
Homestake Mining company as there! (8
is ii, any similar mining company in
the world. Each annual report is
scanned by thousands, not alone by
those who are interested in the financial end of the. company, but by op
eratoi'8 and those interested in mining in general. The report contains
much of interest, It shows that the
bullion receipts amounted lo §4,800,-
558 4S, showing an increase of $873,-
(i I (i.l I ovr the year previous. There
were 1,299,057 tons of ore mined and
milled during the past year, which
gave an average of $.'l.(i9.r> per ton.
This was 15,6 cents higher than that
for lUO.'i. The report shows that the
1,100 foot shaft, reached a year ago,
proves that the ore bodies extend lo
that level, as well as the values. This
shaft has now reached a depth of
1,250 feel, and another level is now
being driven to the ore. "One hundred

Liberal plea that Canada has I,ecu
prosperous because the reins of government were in the hands of I.au-
rier, is a very hard lo [.rove, and, in
I fact, no easier than at an attempt to
| prove that the progress has been
made in spite of Liberal misrule. As
ii mutter of fact Canada has progressed, primarily, by the opening up of
its natural resources, by an evci
increasing population, by the exploit*
i.ti.-n of its intrinsic wealth, and the
facilities given it by the Canadian
Pacific Railway of plaoing its coins
muddies on the world's markets. And
to the Conservative government must
be given the credit, of that legislation
which made the trans-continental
line a possibility, and opened up the
way to the years of prosperity which
the Liberals claim to be the result of
their own superfine legislation.
