A VERY MILD CIGAR 1~k "DAVIS" jr% Promoter Blunt's 3 for 25c Makers: S. Davis & Sons, Limited, Montreal Attacks Railway Policy Dr. Blow's assault on the government's railway policy fell rather flat today, nothing being said that has not been repeated over and over again during the past two sessions. Dr. Blow's speech could not be summarized as it was almost completely made up of figures, quoted from an engin-eerln"!; text book. Without partisan bias. It can be stated that in the preparation and delivery of his speech the Calgary member fell down badly. It was poorly arranged and poorly delivered, painful pauses being frequent while the doctor looked through his notes to find out where he was at. Premier Sitfon replied very briefly, and pointed oat that three ot the five Ko-calleii., charges,-^were against the legiBlatm:e antj Jiiot the . minister ot railways. - v. , , Mr^-Michener covered the same ground that he has repeatedly dealt with in recent years. He did not contribute an Item of new material. The vote was taken a* ten minutes to eleven, the motion being defeated 14 to 31. Dr. Blow wasted no time in preliminaries, but waded right into a lengthy list ot comparisons as to the cost ot railways here and elsewhere. Engineering, right-of-way, grading, ties, railf fish-plates, bolts, nuts, tanks, stations, telegraph poles, and all the essentials to a railroad were brought under review, the speaker selecting one or two roada from a work by Gillette, to support his case in contrast with the Northern Alberta lines. The doctor, discussing,the Central Canada bonds, expressed the belief that they were not sold because ot some legal difll-culty that they had been offered at 6V2 per cent and returned to the prem ier, marked "N, G." Mr. Sltton: "The lion, gentleman Is entlrfely and absolutely mistaken." Dr. Blow: "I just gave the statement as what 1 heard." Mr. Sltton: "it is an absolute misstatement." Dr. BiQw then dealt with the wages paid laborers and the prices paid for the "necessaries of lite." Reading an affidavit showing that $57 was the surplus for four months work; he gave the prices for food among them being lard, 25 cents, peas, 10 to 12Vz cents, flour $10.00, and so on. Dr. Blow, in conclusion said ho thought he could substantiate his charges it brought before any "recognized engineers" In this country. On Premier Sifton rising to reply, he was greeted with cries ot "question" from Liberal members, who did not think a reply was necessary. The premier smilingly proceeding, said he was asked to take the question seriously but the member for South Calgary vy-ouldn't let It be taken seriously. He had mixed the statutes regarding arbitrations and royal commissions and three of the five charges wore against the legislature and not agajnst the minister of railways and ha didn't think he wonld be justified in asking the legislature to allow itself to be Investigated by a royal cominisalon. Ho was willing to exempt tho opposition and that would leave two- thirds ot tho house. (Laughter). Proceeding Mr. Sltton said the charge against himself was that of mal-admlnistra-tion and the member had not referred to that charge or brought any evidence to support. Dr. Blow had taken a book which ho didn't understand and quoted figures which ho didn't understand, a book compiled tor tho use of engineers who had the education to understand tho book tor the purpose ot guiding tUem in the compilation � ot estimates and they applied their  common sense and education and used tho figures as a basis tor their figuring. Dr. Blow did not understand the figures, but he probably thought his figures would look well in the newspapers and .Influence somo people In the opiintry. Costs vary grefiUy and one man who made a profit in taking out earth jiear Calgary at eleven cento had to pay forty cents on tha Orande Prolrio Uno. Ho.urged Dr. Blow to publish his figures as the more the people knew ot them the better Batlsfled they would bo with tho conduct of railway construction in this country. Tho Btatement hud been made that ties could be bought for ten cents and magnlficlent ones for 25 cents, but If the Calgary member had read the last Dominion government report, ho would have found that the average for ties throughout Canada was 53 cents. The Central Canada had put'In their estimates at 60 cents and every one knew that the Peace River country was not the che.ipest place In the world to get ties. Dr. Blow should take tho book and get an engineer to go over the track with him, and ask the engineer It the railroad was not good security at $20,000 a mile and see if the engineer wouldn't tell him that the road was the cheai> e.st ever built and the best security for the money. The premier said that the C, N. R, claimed it could not build into Grand Prairie country under $25,000, the line between t^dmonton and Calgary cost $26,000, the Calgary-Medicine Hat,-$20,000, before any double track was laid. No other railway was built under twenty thousand, the Dunvegan line being an outstanding instance. Concluding Mr. Sifton said the trouble with tho opposition was that they were sadly disappointed that the fifty miles of the Central Canada did not cost the ' whole two million, instead ot one mil-illon, so they could go south and loudly denounce forty thousand a mile for northern railways. Mr. Mlchener followed with a general review ot guaranteed lines condemning the government that money v/as paid out on inflated progress reports. He said that the railway engineers padded the estimates and submitted dishonest figures and the government Instead of investigating carefully, paid out the guaranteed money on the railway estimates. , The Premier: "We don't pay out on estimates, we pay on^ worlc actually I done." ' I Proceeding he largely repeated a to the ownership of cne balance of speech delivered a tew days ago as the Central Canada loan and wound up with a genetal denunciation ot the government. George Hoadley and A, P. Ewing also spoke, and Dr. Blow closed the debate. Bitter Personal Attack Upon Head of Utilities Commission (Continued raoit Front Page) cuss the liquidation of companies but thought Mr. Underwood of Calgary and Mr. JIcDougall of Edmonton would stand comparison with Jlr. Tweedle as business men. They were the managing directors of the companies which tailed. Air. Hoadley followed, charging that Mr. Bulyea was responsible for the autonomy terms, and the province not receiving its resources, hence he should be rewarded at the premier's personal expense, not that of the province. He said the appointment was made as a return favor for the premier being called to lead the party. Mr. Cross replied and gave some interesting Information. He ,=a!d Mr, Hoadley gave the whole opposition case away. They were sore on Mr, Bulyea because he didn't call R, B. Bennett to the premiership. Mr. Cross said that every Liberal in the iiouse signed a petition asking for -Air. Sifton, and in calling him, Mr. Bulyea had followed tho precedent set by every other lieutenant-governor In Canada when such vacancies occurred. Mr. Cross also refuted the assertion that Mr. Bulyea was responsible foi; autonomy terms. Ho was a member of the conference held at Ottawa and testified that Mr. Bulycu advocated giving the provinces tlio resources. A division followed, the amendment being defeated 14 to ;iO. ; >> ? : : ? : : : ? : : : : :< HOLLAND DYKE BREAKS ? Amsterdam.
