Mackenzie King, Ittinist-er ot Labor, expressed himself as quite in svra- pathy with the principle of the bill. He referred to a resolution introduc- -j TJrtr, V" VU HI I UT ock, in 1900, in favor of payment of! fair rates of wages to men engaged on public works, ami enforcing the hours of labor current in the -district where the work is carried on. Since that time the minister point- ed out that the Government had en- deavored to sec that the resolution ha-d been faithfully and fully carried out. In all Government contracts there was a clause requiring the contractor to pay fair rates of wages, ami to the workman employed by him, hours of labor current in dis- trict where the work is carried on. The Government has gone so far as lo appoint fair-wage officers, whose duty, it is to visit the locality where public works are in progress, and pre- pare a schedule of wages and hours of labor, to which the contractor is re- quired to agree before the contract is awarded. The minister referred to cases where inclination to meet their moral obli- gations to build liner, where they want them.

Picture -I-H I I II M M 1 H-H 111 This is what an independent writer asys of THE LAKE DISTRICT, of British Columbia. Mr. P. A. O'Farrell, of New York, writes to T. P. O'Connor, the prominent editor and member of Parliament in Great Britain. "In the ARROW LAKE DISTRICT, of B. C., storms and tern- pests are utterly unknown, and as equally unknown are extremes of heat and cold. Picture Killarney on a vast and far more bcauti- ful scale, and free from the tempests and mists and rain, and you begin to realize the Arrow Lakes, with their beauty grandeur and attractiveness. You are right in directing the attention of your readers to British Columbia. The picturesque beauty of its lakes and rivers and the sublime grandeur of its mountain scenery find all that are desirable for men and women who love open air life and bracing mountain air and an occasional hunt for cariboo and elk. The apples grown on the shores of these lakes are the finest I ever tasted, finer even than those I have sampled from Lord Aberdeen's wonderful orchards about 50 miles further west. There is something in the sun, in the soil, in the serene atmosphere, in the ozone of these pure woods and in the absence of strong winds that permits the growth, and blossom and bloom of the apple in this country as nowhere else on and this is where you can secure a home by paying per acre per month. 9 A card will bring you full information.
