The Subsequent debate throw much light on the nature of the transaction be- tween the government and the raihvaj. At best the arrangement can at time be only judged according to its face value. To regaid the whole matter, as those of the government organs who expiessed their opinions Ime done, as being the wisest and most judicious m the idirnay bond-guarauleeing" tran- sactions ot the gcnernments of Canada, is not exactly a coirecl point of Mew. It is giving the. present scheme a by comparison Thcie is not much virtue in a 'comparative Saluc, if Ube allowed that a exists What the pub- lic needs is that it is made pcileclly clear thai an intrinsic is to be icceived for public money Also thai the inleiesls ot the public are the first concern and not those ol Mackenzie and Mann.

Huei ta puts one in mind of a belligerent Irish- man making peace talk with a quondam enenvj, with his right hand of good fellow ship to the ioic and a loaded shiialah in. his left at'the rear. Five thousand selllpis landed in Quebec from Europe within '21 hours. Evidently Canada is still in favor in'the Old'Land. We need the "set- tlers, but we want land. That should be the prime consideration from now on. Xo one will giumble at Hon Dr Roche's measure for the benefit of homesteaders in sputh- eastern Alberta.

The government should do more than it is doing to make tion on Canada's inland waters safer. It can be done, and it is'criminal to neglect it.
