Let us "see* even if/itliis is admitted, how it haiS worked for the benefit of^thc;.Province. Mr. Michener advocated at the Majestic Theatre thai a �new-deal, should have been made with Clark of Kansas City, and that^he should have been allowed to proceed with the railway. Taking Ihc character of this gentleman as painted by Mr. Ewing wc (ian easily imagine the kind of railroad that would havd been fashioned. The Province Avould haVe Ji'een saddled with ail interest at'5 per"cent, on $7,400,000, amounting to $370,000 per annum, together Avitli the contingency that tlie whole amount i of capital would not have been honestly spent. According to Mr. �Swing's description of Mr. Clark it could not be otherwise ejf-pccted. At the present time the Government is paying interest on six millions lying in the Royal Bank at the rate of one and a half per cent. For the Bank had agreed to pay, the original company three and a half per cent, on the deposit, and tJiis it will continue to do. On the one million four hundred thousand dollars >i)aid into court by the-Union and Dominion Banks there is an interest of five per cent. The added interest, on these sums amount to $160,000. . ' $370,()00--^160,00b is $210,000 per year.Svluch the action of Mr. Sifton -has saved the Province. , Up-to the present, tlierei'ore, we may well ask; "Which policy has proved the best?"
