The tendency oi thought all loaS awaited auctitm of lots in the over Canada for several years has been towards lower tariff but the in- dications are that thair'tendency will not increase any faster in the West than in the East and a split between the East, and the West on this sub- ject is not probable. GIVE THE CHIEF CONTROL The city council should place thej fire brigade and the Sre chief in. the! same position as the.police force and t the chief of police. Chief G-illespie is in absolute control of his force and the aldermen have nothing to say as to the appointment or dlsnussal of men of the force beyond adopting the chief's reports. Chief 'Kroning should have the same power. He should have full authority over the fire bri- gade and the equipment, with full responsibility for discipline, ment, appointments and dismissals. The aldermen should not have any right to have anything to say in these matters. A .great deal of the success 'attained by the police force has been due to the adoption ot this policy when Chief Gillespie was ap- pointed, and there is every reason to believe that similar success would be attained by adopting the same policy with regard to the fire department. police force and the fire, depart- ment should be outside the realm of aldermanic interference and municipal patronage. C. P. R. West Fairview addition com- prising that section lying west of Granville Street up' to the Lulu Is- land Ry., and south of Ninth Ave. to 13th Ave. took place at the hall this morning and every lot of- fered was sold in record time and at record prices. The total sale was over CONSERVATIVES AND G.T.P. Years ago the Liberal Opposition in Parliament made some predictions concerning the C. P. R: that have since been proved to be entirely er- roneous. The country then was ab- solutely unknown, and no railroad had been built in the West. .There were no facts upon which to base com- parisons or conclusions. Today the situation is different. The G. P. R. has been a great financial success. The Canadian Northern, too, has proved that the operation of railways in the Canadian West- is a profitable undertaking. Yet, in spite of all this fund of in- formation, which cannot be gainsaid, the Conservative Opposition in the present Parliament are making just as wild predictions or the failure of the Grand Trunk Pacific as ever the Liberal Opposition made of the C.P. R. They have the facts before them that disprove absolutely their state- ments that the G. T. P. would never h? grain it can never repay the loan the Government pro- poses to advance it, and others of the same kind. There can' be no reason for such opposition except that it ba purely and. simply party tactics and the policy of petty criticism that has the action of the par- ty in the HOUM, The general pub- Hc who value of the! road to the country, the absolute Everything She Ate SEEMED A BURDEN TO CARRY.
