The.Minister's Vievrs The minister laid before the dele- gates his views on the'subject of _the present position of Indian boac.iiug schools, their usefulness in educating pared to do in the -way. oi increasing the Question 'brought" forward was Trunk Road -especially dealing with that part ot. it over me Frank" slide. Opinions were fully ex- pressed thai to be done to this part of the road right" as it was positively dangerous to the travelling public, especially so at'night time, as there arc sonic i parts oi it where it' is impossible for) the Indians and the present unsatis- I teapis to pass cadT-otlier and factory condition of their relations with the government. He stated that while in his opinion boarding schools situated on or near the reserve were a more valued factor in the education of the Indian, the relations of these schools with''the government had al- ways been indeterminate. He found in some few cases buildings had been erected by the department, in a large majority of cases these had "been erected by the churches as mis- sionary enterprises in the early days of the' country's settlement and t-h-e government had been called upon irom time to time as the needs of the case demanded to improve these proper- lies, 10 render schools more efficient. His present, desire was to make an arrangement with the. church authori- ties whereby the whole, conduct and management of these schools would be covered by a contract between government and churches, whereby the responsibilities of each to the- other Tvould be definitely fixed and that the financial straits in which churches found themselves owing to the gener- al increased cost of living and extra- ordinary demands made upon their fin- ances on account -of rtic expansion ot j evangelical work in the western coun- j Irv owing to its rapid settlement' in a measure be relieved by the Offer Accepted A most interesting discussion fol- lowed'in which the Minister's propos- als were carefully considered by the Church dignitaries present from'vari- ous points of view; denominational and otherwise, an-dyafter full consider- ation and some slight amendment it was unanimously decided to adopt Mr. Oliver's suggestions as meeting all reasonable demands for the purposes of. these schools for several years to come. The Arrangement Schools are to be classed geograph- ically in -three divisions. Eastern, TVes tern and Northern, and again into accidents had been reported. The road cast of "the slide was discussed and it j was agreed that it would be a, great advantage to the settlers around Bur- mis and the South Fork if a. bridge was- built at the Beaver Dam, as it would save a long round ahout drive to cross' the river during high water. Delegates Names The following delegates were ap- pointcii to visit Edmonton and bring these matters before the- Minister oi Public 'Works: Messrs. Whiteside. Cole man; Frayer, Blairmore; Murphy, Frank: Coulthart, Cochrane. Hillcrest; Hamilton, Passburg; Fitz- simmons, Burmis. The territory covered by these dele- gates covers a distance of ahout thir- ty miles, and outside of the CiP.R. track there is no other way of getting over this territory than the very dan-1 gerous and unsatisfactory road andi some: of the delegates appointed pressed their determination to see that something was done to improve this highway. Nov.. 10. When the Legislaturejnet two. reports were .-lakh on the table- from the commission appoirited to investigate the Alberta. Water- ways matter. One is. a majority report "signed by" Chief Justice; Harvey' and Justice .Scott. -The second report was written by ouasticeBeck' The '-majority report does .not find any 'member of the "late government guilty of graft-butthe-general tenor of the report is n.ot creditable to the-members .of the gover'ameiit wiibJiad most 10 do "with making the contract. It disapproves almost entirely "with the. pr ovi si on s .'of, the ..-contract and indicates that they were-far from being- ijf-the 'bestinterests of: tne Province. The report concludes in tne Clarte as a Avitness. no estimate can'-_% placed' or. persuasive powers. But the fact that intelligent as trustees make a stranger for'work to be done'by Jiirn, in eicess-of what were asked by others for the same to others" for similar the. suspicion; that they. -haVe- been actuated- by .sSsie motive -'other -fthan-regard for the interests it te The -of the.-.wards of the Assembly set-out in the-. Conmiission is that -that.-motive ;is per- .sonal interest. -Many and -eireuriisuances related -are" consistent with such a conclusion. suggested intimacylbetween Mr. and the proceeding with-'tlie building- of tlie i road without having--fulfilled the legal requirements, 'suggesting the belief that the Gov- ernment will approve of what are also consistent with'this1 view. But the facts are 'consistent with other conclusions, in addition' to-that fact, direct testimony is given by both Dr. Rutherford and Mr. Cross, explicitly denying any personal interest and it cannot be 'said that either evidence itsel'f. O the manner in which given, furnishe-: any reason to; its correctness, and the only ground for rejecting it would be. because the circumstantial evidence is in conflict with it. As there-is room for cloabt that the inference of personal interest is the only reasonable inference to be. drawn from the circumstances re- lated, and in view of the positive denial, it can only be said -that, in the opinion of your commissioners, the" evidence does not warrant the finding was, or is, any such personal interestpon the part of Dr. Rutherford or Mr. Cross, as is suggested by the words of the resolution of the Assembly.'? Beck in his report disagrees with the conclusion of-the other members of the Commission, and finds the Hon. 'W, H. Gushing fully-as respon- sible for the contract as the other members of the -Government. He admits "that the Government in several instances erred in wisdom, but-does not believe they were inspired by wrong motives at any time. Everybody j Had a Good Time at S. O. E.
