Thi? is? a samuie of vur i- ship by Tbe sev." law; As to the arbitrary power of the .boiler inspector I see no injustice, for whiii' i? ihe use. of the so-.-erntner.iT draff ing laws: and paying an inspector it' riiar inspector has: to en- force law. I; appears by The aiorenvenuone'.! arvicie tliar. the inspectors- or' tbi? pro- vince are doing their duty and with the usual thanks that comes from a man doing'the same, that is. a kick from tbe man on the wrong and cf the string. Mr. Ulacfccrby refers to the mind and opinion of boiler shop superinten dents, for whom I have high regard, bat those same superintendents ar? very often, in the construction of ers hampered, by market of boiler sales, and are forced in sorae cases material and %vorkman5hip in order to build a ooll- er thai- will call for a readv n-arker. The specification of the Alberta law prevents any such practice on boile.'s; coming to this province and gives the boiler shop superintendent tne oppor- j'f.nity to put a good safe co'.'c- on market without it being er- i soirl bv another boiier of inferior f grade.
