Business and Reports The roriort of the Syno(iical corn- There was no question about the value, it \vas ubnoriual in value. Moreover, it was the property of the Indians and what-cver coultl be secured for it. must be paid over to the Indians. Tlie Columbia government had apparently bought it, paying $11,350 pet tamily ami * the Indians aKrceinp to vacate the land. The transaction, said Mr. Oliver, had been in progress for some time, negotiations being opened in March, while early ic April a meeting was lield between a magistrate of the provincial government and the Indians with a view to considering the surrender of the property. Mr. Oliver read extracts from coast news- 4 papers, declaring the land was worth. $7,000,000 and tiie Puget Sound Railway had made a large offer. He alfio read a report stating that Attorney-General Bowser had told the Indians that they would get nothing for their lands it thev waited, as thev had de-rided to wait until the Indian Commissioner came. Mr. Bowser was alleged to have lold the Indians that they could take the $11,250, or leave it. intimating fliat if they left it fhey would get nothing. Mr. Oliver inquired if .Mr. Howser was acting for the Indian department or was he a9ting o^ his own initiative^with t^e ^ authority-;ol'the government .ol B. Il was quite evident that the B.

The opinion of the membsva of the nod appeared to be divided on the port on some of the df lalls. Rev. W. G.

Ot^Iiers suggested that The best way was to allow the government to experiment with government operation of the liiiuor traffic north of the Athabasca River, but still hesitated In endorfing the provincial government in this .rumored action. Looks for provincial Prohibition Rev, Mr. Forinne was strong in his belief that If the local option carried Sn the vote which it is hoped ."oon to take in two of the districts, that it would not then be long before prohibition would carry for the whole province.

Budget Matters The report of the Synod's committee on systematic giving, discus-rd the budget for 1012-liH:;. It was arranged that all contributions by congregations he credited in the Blue Book against the budget. The Synod's siiare of llie IjudRet was accepted as $75,'J00, aa ailoted by the assembly. Rev. W. Shearer. W, T. Hamilton, W. JlcXlchol and Dr. Monkman were appointed a committee to formulate a plan of action for next year to be transmitted tnrough presbyteries lo the congregations. The budget allocations were made to the presbyteries as follows;: Vermillion. $2500; Edmonton. $27.0^0; Lacombe. $3000; Red Deer, I2'r,0; High River, $.'{750; Maclf^od, $5000; and Calgary. $30,000.

Sly of the congregations in the F- r.e at \ iclori.i. lie says that there were deplorable results. .Mr. Horden said that it ser^med rat.'i^r odd to hear the c.\'-m n ster tali-Jii^ about the sacred rif^his of the Indians when he never made any el\ort to protect these sacred rij;hts of the red men as in the case of St. Peters' res^ fve. Mr. Borden asked who baa iiiformed the member for Kdmonton that the B. C. government 1 wa.s not ready t,/ follow the same Castor, AUa.. April 24.~.The final : policy as m Vn). As far as he knew returns of the Coronation ridinj;, in ; the attitude of the H. V. j.':overnment doubt until yesterday, are in, and hud not altered. Mr. Oliver had re-give F. H.

He could assure the opposition that the government was clearly alive to its duty to protect the Indians and they woilld give the question consideration. Opposition Leader Sir Wilfrid Lunrier said th&t the premier's answer did not cover the case. lie did not believe that a commission Could propci"ly deal with the matter. It uas was desitalUc to remove it. The Indians were only an impediment to development, hut their rights must he protected. H seemed lo him that the Indians had received an alto ether in de ,uat3 amount for the r s rve. er thn;; might be all rij^ht, but the qu'^stion ought to be investigated before the surrender was iinallv cuiiBUiiunuted. * * * jority of GO. - * ^ real eslute snurulation. He reali/>ed Bob Kogers At the bcginiuny; of his speech Hon. Bobert Holers r<�jid ah opinion prepared by tiie deputy minister of justice to the effect that the question He wa.^ interrupted by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who stated that the point at issue was not one of law, but as to whether oc not the payment to be made the Indians was inadequate. Continuing, Mr. Rogers said that the department of Indian affairs had not yet investigated the matter and he was not prepared to reply on newspapers as to what was or what was not being done. He did not believe that Hon. Mr. Bowser, the attorney-general, had made the statements attributed to him in the press. H was, he went on, probably by reason o*f the arrang;oment with the late Dominion government that Mr. Bowser had dealt with the matter so far as he had. Mr. Rogers then read telegrams exchanged in 1910 between Sir Wilfrid Laurier ana Sir Richard McBride, showing that Sir Wilfrid had stated that any arrangement satisfactory to the In-! dians would be satisfactory to the Dominion The late government, Mr. Rogers said, apparently had conh-rlence in Sir Richard McBride at that time, and so had the present government today. At the same time, the Indian department h;ul not yt t giv; n the proposed surrender by the In-diaiis consideration, and at ail events, it was properly a matter for the Indian commission to pasK upoii, Ouelpii .Man Mr. Guthrie, of South Wcilingtun, conimendcd the course followed by Mr. Oliver in bringing the matter before the house. So much of a questionable nature on the part of the government liad already bcm brought to light this session, he said that it was wise that notice should be given to transactions such as that referred to by Mr. Oliver. .Mr. Guthrie agreed with Sir Wilfrid Laurier that the scope of the Indian commission is simply to invcs- province and he went on to say that, i according to newspaper reports Hon. Mr. Bowser had oDcrcd $11,000 per Indian family for land in V^ancouver. The attorm;y-general, Mr. Guthrie claimed, bad gone far beyond his power when iie told the Ii\dians to take thus sum or elect to take nothing except some land in part of B. C. the inn* L" Kitsilano reserve were the same today as they were on the first of April or beftne. And the government, ha Said, would see to it that theso Indians were protected. Acting Minister Hon T. W. Trothers took the ground that .Mr Guthrie v/as not so much concerned with the welfare of the Indians as lie was with maiciiig a point against the government. As for Sir Wilfrid Laurier's contentir-n that the Indians had surrendered their interest in tiie reserve, .Mr. brothers said that whatever interest the Indians had in April they still had as the Dominion government had not given its consent to any surrender. Continuing, he drew attention to the dilTerencc which he claimed there was between tiie stand of Sir Wilfrid in 1910 and that ge/itlcman'-s st.ind at the present lime. In UMO, he said, any agreement satisfactory lo the Indians, suited the |)i;esej.t oiM'o-sit ion leader. Mr. Guthrie: " perfn-lly ri:-,ht.
