Tiiis com- mittee consists of seven, and in or- der to perfectly' represent the clergy and laity of the Presbyterians of Al- berta, the moderator was given time to nominate the committee. The opinion, of the members of the "EjTida appeared to be divided on the iuerits .of the proposed temperance 1 'pol'Ky, Some approved it on the condition that it was the best possi- bility at present, while others main- tained that it was not right to tolerate the liquor traffic even under the con- trol and management ci the govern- ment Others suggested that the best TV ay wag to allow the government to experiment with government opera- tion of the liquor traffic north of the Athabasca River, but still hesitated in endorsing the provincial govern- ment in this .rumored action. Looks for. Provincial Prohibition Rev. Mr. Fortune was strong in his belief that it the local option carried in the vote which it is 'hoped soon to take in two of the districts, that it would not then be Ions before prohi- bition, 'would carry for the whole pro- vince. He urged for co-operation with the U. F. A, to secure a controlling vote favorable to His greatest objection to the pro- Soaed constructive policy was the im- possibility of getting the right men willing to manage the traffic, and the wrong men could not be trusted .on account of graft. Dr. McQueen's Views Dr. McQueen said he understood that the government would take con- niittee on social service gelism was read and after consid- erable discussion, was finally referred back to the committee for further re- yon on some of the details. Rev. "W. G. Brown, in. presenting the report of the committee on aug-, mentation, spoke of the splendid work being done by the pastors and members of the augmented congrega- tions, one ot with eighteen members was credited with raising j for salary and ?T5 for the bud- get.

The British Columbia gov- ernment hud apparently bought it, paying 350 per family nntl the Indians agroeint; to vacate the land. The transaction, said Mr. Oliver, had been in progress for some time, negotiations being opened in March, while early in April n meeting was held between a magistrate of the provincial government anil tho In- iliims with a view to considering the surrender of the property. Mr. Oli- ver read extracts from coast news- papers, declaring; -the land was -worth, and the Puget Sound Rail- way hail made a large offer." He also read u report stating that Attorney- j General Bowser had told the Indians that they would get nothing for their j lands if they waited, as they Iiad de- I tided to wait until the Indian Com- missioner came. Mr. Bowser was alleged to have told the Indians that they coiild take the or leave it, intimating that if they left it they would get nothing. Mr.' Oliver inquired if Mr. Howscr was acting lor tho Indian department or was he own initiative with the i authgritjTiottthe government ;oJ B It wa? (juite evident that the B, C. government was not alnne in the market for the lands, Jilf. Oliver said that the responsibility lay with file Dominion government and to them they must look for protection the Indians. If there was to he a change in the principle guilding the, government it was right and proper that the country should know. j Mr. Oliver said there had been a i very similar case in Victoria, where there was a reserve within tho lim- its of the city. The Indians are giv- eh parts of the new reserve. He him-! self partly responsible and the plan of paying them cash had .not proved satisfactory. It had been de- moralizing. Mr. Oliver sa'rt the gov- ernraent was not keeping faith with the Indians or the Imperial govern- ment, when it allowed this transac- j tion to go through whereby the pro- perty goes to the provincial govern- ment. for less than a quarter of a million dollars.

C. government to this property solely for the purpose bought. How- ever, in the case of. St. Peter's re- serve, it was nothing more or less than a speculation, and" the minister I had refused an investigation. I ME. Borden said that the govern- ment realized the full necessity 01 protecting the Indians and they in- tended to (io so. I They had not yet been officially I notified of the negotiations of the B. C. government with the red men, but before the red men could be sanction- ed it must lie approved by them and they would see it was their right and duty to see that- the Indians were protected. He pointed out that an arrangement had just been com- pleted for an inquiry into the ques- tion of the B. C. reserve. This mat- ter would properly come under the scope of that commission and they would investigate it. He could as- sure the opposition that the govern- ment was clearly alive to its duty to the Indians and they would give the question considera- tion. Opposition Leader Sir Wilfrid Luurier said that the premier's answer did not cover the case. He did not, believe that a com- mission could properly deal with the m utter, it was only apppinimi to cover the dispute as to the rights to the Indiana' lar.d. Sir Wilfrid ad- mitted that where the lay close- to a city it was desirable to remove it. The Indians were only an impediment to development, but their rights must be protected. It seemed io him that the had received an alto ;othcr amount for the th ir; might be all right, but the question ought to be investigated before the surrender was finally coiisiumnuteU. Bob, Rogers At the beginning of his speech Hon. Robert Rogers nh opinion pre- pared by the deputy minister'of jus- tice to the effect Hiat. the question of the Indian reserve came within the scope of the commission recently ap- pointed to deal with affecting the Dominion and thc prov- ince of B. C. He was interrupted by Sir Wilfrid iLaurier, who stated that the point at issue was not one of .law, but as to whether or not the payment to be made Indians was inadequate. Continuing, Mr. Rogers said that the department of Indian affairs had not yet investigated the, matter and he not prepared to on newspapers as to what was or what was not being done. He did not be- lieve that Hon. Mr. Bowser, the at- torney-general, had made thc state- ments attributed to him in the press. It was, he went on, probably by reason the arrangement with the late Dominion government that Mr. Bowser bad dealt with the mat- ter no jar as he had. Mr. Rogers then read telegrams exchanged in 1910 between Sir Wilfrid Laurier ana Sir Jlichard McUride, showing that Sir Wilfrid bad stated that any ar- rangement satisfactory to tlie Jn- dians would be satisfactory to thc Dominion The lato government, Mr. Rogers said, apparently had confi- dence in Sir .Richard lilcDride at that time, and so had the present govern- ment today. At the same time, the Indian department had-not- yet- givi'n the proposed surrender by the In- dians consideration, and at ail events, it was properly a matter for the Indian commission to pase upou, Our.lph JMan Mr. Gitthric, of South Wellington, commended thc course followed by Mr. Oliver in bringing the matter be- fore the house. So much of a i.nies- tionah'c nature on the part of the government had already bfcn brought to light this session, he said that it was wise that notice should lie .given to transactions -such as that referred to by Mr. Oliver. Mr. Guthrift agreed with Sir Wil- frid Laurier that the scope of thc In- diau commission is simply to invc-s- tigate the question of property rights as between the Dominion and the province and, he went on to say that, according to newspaper reports Hon. Mr. Bowser had offered SL1.QOO. per Indian family for land in Vancouver. The attorney-general, Mr. Guthrie ciainted, had gone far beyond his power when IIR tolii the Indians to take thus sum or elect to take noth- ing except some land, in the inner part of I3.-C. Acting Minister Hon. T. W. Crothers took UIR ground that Mr. Gutlirie was not so much concerned with the welfare of the Indians as he was with making a point against the As for Sir Wilfrid Laurier's. contention that tho Indians had surrendered their interest in tiis reserve, Mr. Crothers said that whatever interest the Indians had in April they still had as the1 Dominion government had not given its consent to any surren- der. he drfrw attention to the difference wliicli lie claimed Mere was between tho stand of Sir Wilfrid in 1910 and that stand at the present time. In 1m said, any agreement satisfactory Io the Indians, suited the present oppo- sition leader. >.Ir. GiU-hrie: WHK right. For years the lalp knew, what the Indians wauled, hut tlic B. C. government would not pay the amount." i Hon. Mr.. C'rnthers declared that the interests of the Indians thos Kitsilano reserve were the same to- day as they: were on the first of Ap- ril or before. And the government, he said, -would sec to it that tueso Indians were protected. Turn O' the Year This, is the .time when bit by bit The days begin to lengthen sweet.
