Mr, Tweedie Answered Tweedie's descrijHion of the desti- tution which he said prevailed, was natlietic, and lie apparently was argu- ing that the provincial government should offset the effect, ot "Bonien soup kitchens" by compelling the con- struction of [he roads.

The House accepted the amendment, which means that the C. X. It. has to get to work this year and hustle the line to completion, or it will lose its charter.

He gave figures to show "how unfair it .would be to have a uniform aiset nicnt and tax, discriminating as "would agnmst Lhe owners ot cheaper lauds. 'Proceeding, II r. Mitchell quoted to show that rural municipal taxes are not excessive, -averaging 4.28 mills on the dollar, while school taxes average 7.13-cents an acre. Wl.Ue.tliB eminent was not responsible, he thought the rural municipalities had "acted wfiii caution. Railway Guarantees Do Work Mr. Mitchell disposed of opposition criticism of indirect liability through railway 'guarantees and showed that not only 'did' Mr. Alicbcner grossly ex- aggerate the amounts, but that one- third of the railway in operation todn> is due to the guarantee policy, while many hundreds of miles are still un- der construction.
