Premier Borden Made Promise that House Could Discuss Prince Albert Deal Ottawa, April 16.-The most, inter-�esting sitting of the house since the introduction ot tlio closure resolutions occurred today. The diversion � was provided by the opposition who made a couple o� unsuccessful efforts ito discuss a motion ol censure of Hon. Robert Kogers, minister of pub- If Vice-President Marshall Had His Way the Trusts Would Be Throttled to Give IndeJ)endent Man a Chance to Compete Washington, April' 16.-Putting conscience into' business a's an antidote for Socialism, was the keynote of an Interview given by ' Vice President Thomas Marshall in explanation of his speech on recent laws, made'Ini New York hast Saturday night. "\Vhen I said in New York,"., the vice president reniarlied, "tbait Carl Marx tind hunger and a longing 'for happiness are abroad,in the land, I was expreasiiig, not; my own opinion, but the opinion of others. I said that It I were the possessor ot a vast and growing fortune and had made up my mind that the gbverhment should continue to help me.make It grow, or It I were a Socialist, I would frown down on the educational system of America. "Suppose a government and general assembly in the state of New York should repeal the sitatute of descents for real and personal property, and the statute with Teference to the making of wills on their d'feath, how much vested Int'brest would any relative have in the property which fpll from thedr nerveless hands, at the hour of dissolution? The right to inherit' and the right ito revise are neither inherent Or constitutional, biit they are simply, privileges given hy tlie state to Its citizens. "From men of all^ classes I have heard expressions of growing disgust over the economic policy of exorbitant protection, which was lllrst put forward on the ground that revenue was needed ';Off the war debt. Next it was defended on the ground that it was needed fof the building of our infant asylums.- Liater it Was defended as being nboessai-y for the protection- of ithe' wOrkingmaa's wage. Anidi finally, we>' havie had It put forward as neoessary to' make up the dift^ence in the co^t of production at home and abroad- with - a reasonable profit for the manufaoturer. "I have heard men say that the public has grown tired of an economic policy that- is 'defended on a different ground ev4ry four years, and that the public is tired of ibhe pater- nalism which is the little brother of Socialism. "They no longer believe that the manufacturers are selling goods goods abroad cheaper than in the V. S. it is their surplus stock. They are sayliig that if this werg true the trusts would not be building new factories and planls In the United States to turn out more goods. "The people were told In the last campaign that the trusts were a natural revolution and that the only way \o deal with them was to regillate ithem. The people are tired of being told such things. What they want is the kind of opportunity that formerly existed In this country. One man in my state told me that he.had $100,o60; and was about to set up in a busln'ess that was controlled largely by .a trust and that he was warned not to proceed. He has figured out 'the amount that would he needed for his plant, how much his raw material v/ould cost, and what Jabor could be had. One of his own friends told him he had better not go on; the trust would drive him put of business. "Another'man in the hardware business in Indianapolis -was buying horse shoes from an independent company. Representatives of the tTuats told him he had better stop. Unless he bought from the trust, he would be driven out of business. "When I left Indianapolis I was 'told that the man was finding it hard to get horse shoes anywhere- "Thls is the kind of business against which the people are complaining. They are being told that there are just as many opportunities today as ever. There are any number of jobs ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 waiting for the capable man. It may be that a very able man might not want to ea'ni $20,000 -working for ihe sleel trust, however. He might prefer to start a little rolling mill of his own, so that he would he independent and his own master, even though he made- but $5000 a year.' |It is Such opportunities as these that many men are saying are needed by theiii." he said, only upon-a inotiou to go into committee of supply. Alter a brief discussion, the matter -was dropped for,, the time, and Mr. MoCraney, of Saskatoon, resumed the debate on the 'closure. He criticised the gove'rnment. for proposing to change the rule;? ot.^he house in the midst of a fight .OM .'ah. inaportant measure and protesiedparticularly against the proposal to prevent members from ventilating grievances on the motion to go into supply. It would deprive members of many opportunities to do real service to their constituents, he argued.: When Mr. .McCraney had concluded, Hon- Frank i'or the . house, but, on lie works and former minister of the _ interior, in connection with the | tiie objection of ,Mr.^JIeighen, of granting of a homestead, hear the I Portage, was ruled ou-f'^'oE order on city of Prince Albert to Albeirt Donaldson. In the course of a previous debate it wa.s claimed by the opposition that his homestead is within the ,limits of the city, and that it is worth seventy thousand dollars; The struggle, which throughout was carried on with dignity and mod- the ground that he could not do so as he had spoken on the resolution under discussion. Tlie' objection was sustained. Mr. Pardee, chief Liberal whip, then moved the adjournment of the house. The spe&ker ruled him out of order, however; because on Monday he moved- wht adjournment oration by speakers on both sides of of the debate, the house, culminated in a compro- Dr. Bels.nd then rose and said that inise, this prime minister agreeing to after speaking to the closure  resolu-Jiave the house moved into committee tion he would move the adjournment ot supply on Thursday so the riiatter of the house.' No exception:was tak-may bo threshed out. In doing so he eri to this. Dr., Belaud spoke until said 'it was the desire :of the minister of public works that the,discussion should take place without delay. The llrst move on the part ot the op-" position was by Hon. Frank Oliver, who, on routine proceedings, moved the adjournment of the house in order to .'nake the motion of censure. Speaker Sproulo ruled him out of or-d6r. Such a motion could be made. nearly six o'clock and then moved the adjournment. i � Mr'. Oliver rose to speak to i-t and immediately gave as one o� the reasons why the house shpuld adjourn the desirability ot : considering the Prince AUiert land matter. : . Speaker Sproule ruled that his re^ marks must be confined to the matter before the house. Then there was some more discussion. Sir Wilfrid Laurier said that during the continuous sittings it had been ruled that on a motion to adjourn the navy bill must be discussed. This was a . reversal of that rule. Premier Borden said there was a distinction. This motion was interjected in the middle ot a debate and such a course was not desirable.  When the house resumed at eight o'clock,' Hon. Goo. P. Graham asked the speaker to give a luling as to what it was permissible to discuss on a motion to adjourn. Speaker' Sproule -ruled that Mr. Oliver must confine himself to the matter under discussion. Premier Borden said he had discussed the matter with the minister of public works -who was desirous that there should be no delay in connection with the bringing up of this matter. He would, therefore, agree to the house being moved into committee of supply on Thur.sday in order that it might be disposr.d of. Sir Wilfrid Laurier repeated what he had said before recess, adding that when the navy bill is again considered and the adjournment ot the hou^e is moved, members will be permitted to discuss the bill itself. After some further discussion on the technical points Mr. ^Olivet said that in.view of the promise of the premier to have the hoijse moved into committee of supply on Thursday ho would withdraw the motion. The,debate on the closure was then continued by .Hon. Chas. Murphy, Mr. Verville, Mr. Lapointe of Kani-ouraska, Mr., Gauthier ot Ste. Hya-cinthe, and Mir. Thompson, of' Qu'-Appelle.

Edmonton, April 17.-George Gar(l-ihor of Ottawa, is in Edmonton outfitting for a trek over' the trail of romance to the Upper Hayes River district to prospect a gold claim located by his uncle on the bank of the Peace river in 1898, during the rush to the Yukon, when this city was the starting point of-the overland trail to the Klondike. The story told here hy Gardiner is that during the Klondike rush three prospectors went into the Hayes river country, which, except for a small part along the river near VermlUibh, is unexplored. One of the party was found on the river hank a year afterward. The man was emaciated and only lived a few hours, hut in his last few minutes of life told a tale of hardships and of fight with hostile Indians who killed his two companions. The prospector had in his possession samples of the richest gold, and George Gardiner, who believes that the old prospector was his uncle, is now starting out to face the dangers of the unknown north. Gardiner says his uncle left Ottawa In the fall of 1897, and from there his family only heard of him onciB, and that was in the spring, 'when he said he was leaving for the north oil a prospecting tour. Whether the dying ' gold seeker found, on the banks of the Pence was Mr, Gardiner's uncle is not in any way a certainty. But-the fact remains that the sole survivor of the Indians of the Hayes River country had a large quantity of gold which he could have procured In no.othnr place seems to leave little doubt that that unexplored territory may he rich in the yellow metal. Though the hinterland has been e.\-plored to'points well within the Arctic circle, the "Upper Hayes River country still remains a,vast unknown stretch. Remarking upoa the fact, an. old, timet in the north ;country said he has never known of a white man to" .have gone far into that part of the country. , , , .j. v. From Edmonton .to /Peace.
