AMES' ADDRESS DISSECTED fircn lor ftCDdifif His Absolute MisrepreswtatioM Pointed Oat in a Mod Effective Article ii an Ucpntat Weekly (Edmonton News) In opening his address Mr. Ames] referred to the extent of our timber resources. "The lie declared, "has permitted the major portion of these to pass from the state mostly into the hands oi speculators" This is a statement that lias been made over and over again, but it is altogether incorrect In. the twelve years since Sir Wilfrid Laurier came into power it has sold 6500 miles of timber lands. Is this the major por. tioii of our resources Look up the report of the superintendent of for. estry for .1903. We find thcie 'an es- timate made by Mr. Stewart, whom Mr. Ames quoted in support of some of his other statements, that the. am- ount of merchantable timber on Do- minion lands is square miles. The proportion sold ia twelve years is thus not very large. In the same report-it is estimated that timber ticisms lhat are now being Mr. spoke ot the inadequate dvertiaing of intended wiles that was .one. "In addition to Die newspaper es, a few lie said, "were sent to privileged friends." This is' quite incorrect. Anyone by forward, ng his timine to the department could receive all notices of such sales. But what the Saturday News con- siders the crowning orfeuce of Mr, Ames' address was the fact that he did not tell his audience that this system which he was denouncing was abandoned by the 'minister of the interior before he commenced his present campaign. Provision has been made by the government for preliminary investigation and survey before the limits are put up for sale, for the holding of sales by auction and for tht- compulsory establishment of mills. Thi.s surely hats a very iui- portaot bearing on the discussion. One would think that Mr. Ames was making a trip throughout the coun. try for the purpose of stirring up public opinion to force the reforms hat he suggests from the govern. iient. Why the government decided n making these changes was stated jy Hon. Mr. Oliver at considerable ength ia the House of Commons on Color, Flavor, Fragrance are the strong points of yen lo seU or to rent place it ii this columi. If you wilt use this 25c one iasertioi 6 insertions for land can be cut over once every twen- ty years. If we are to trust Mr' Stewart's figures, it -surely does not look as if there were much danger of our timber resources becoming ex- hausted, if we do not dispose of a larger proportion of them in the fu- ture than we have in the last twelve years. But this would be, of course, no justification for giving away those 6500 square miles. Mr. Ames de- nounced in strong terms the wasteful and unreasonable system under which they had been, administered. But what he did not tell his audience was that the system he was denouncing was n'bt adopted by governmen but simply continued-'over from tha which preceded it. The regulations that were in force when the transac- tions described by Mr. Ames took place were, in all important respect the same as those which were adopt ed by the Conservative government i 1839. He mentioned but one change Mr. Sifton he declared, had take out the clause which made optional mh the government at the end of year the right to cut timber limit that had been purchased. Mr. Sifton explained very fully this change in his speech in the House of Commons debate. It was pure- ly a formal clause as any one can see. Who would want to pay a big price for a timber limit believing that at the end of the first'year the govern- ment might cancel his right to cut timber there.- It was generally un- derstood among the Canadian lum- bermen that the clause would not be But when American bennen that the clause would not be enforced. But when American lum_ terinen to come in, this part o] the regulations made, them uneasy and deterred them from making in- tended investments. In deference to them the clause was taken out. The change, however, had no ef feet on the department's practice ugainst the old Conservative govern- ment were in connection with trans- actions which took place before that date.After the regulations of that year were passed, as anyone who has followed the course of Canadian poli- tics knows, there was little discussion about timber limits until Mr. Arnes came upon the scene. One exception was in the year 1894, when Mr. John Cherlton, a Liberal member, rc-gister. ed an objection to 'the system in vogue. Hon. T. M. Daly was at that time the Canadian Minister of the In'_ terior and the words which he in reply to Mr. Oharlton are of de- cided interest now as showing what the opinion of the Conservatives o that day was in respect to timber ad. ministration policy. "I may said Mr. Daly, "fo: ne information of the House tha he department of the. interior ha old the timber over which it ha urisdiction by public competition That is by public tender.and not by auction sale, it having been the opin.

Even supposing hat they continued the old eystem onger than they have, should- n't Mr. Ames have told that they abandoned it well on to a year ago? So much for the system itself. We numerous to consider n contra distinction to the views of .he honorable gentleman who has ast spoken that better prices could be got by tender than by public auc- tion." That is definite enough. Here we have, the system that the present government continued when it took office. Mr. Daly and other Conserva- tive members found it satisfactory and their Liberal successors saw no good reason, for altering it. Mr. Ames. referred-to case after case in rwhicn. timber limits were secured at prices that he considered altogether liadequate. There may-be. differ- ences of opinion as to whether prices were high or low. But this much a least should be made clear, that i a man secured a limit at a certain price, he did so in open competition with the world. So long as there was no inside manipulation of the ten ders every one had an equal chance to becorifiTwealthy. It may be true, as Mr. Ames alleg- ed, that timber limits secured from as to the way in which it was adi ministerd under the regime of Mr. Sifton. Mr. Ames 'had no definite charge against any one official but pointed out what he considered were highly suspicious circumstances in connection with the various tenders. The inference in every case that officials of the department were in league instructed in securing timber limits, by which they could be as- sured of securing what they wanted without having, to pay more than they had to. That suspicion might reasonably arise may b? granted. It is evident that sufficient precautions were not taken ii the department, when Mr. 'uriff was commissioner, in connec- ion with the opening of tenders, to ssure everyone a square deal was being given. There was laxity hown and those responsible for it lave only themselves to blame if they .re placed under suspicion, which would not have been possible if the proper procedure had been followed. But there is nothing to prove that- crooked work was done, Mr. Ames made a great deal out of the fact ;hat more than one cheque was sent in by successful tenderers.

But Mr. Burrows in nis: place in Parliament, and others in the witness box at the sessions of the public accounts com- mittee, gave complete information re- garding it. The members include Sir Daniel governor! of Manitoba arid Mr. Burrows, while Mr. R. R. Patterson, who signs its letters is its secretary. The first page of the report of the secretary of state for 1903 gives the'-'same information regarding the company as it did about every other company incorporated in that year. Mr. Burrows stated the object of organization in Parlia- ment. It intended- to erect a pulp mill at Edmonton. To keep this sup- plied, timber berths were necessary and it started in to secure them. On later investigation, however, it was decided that till a paper mill could be established in this city, it would riot be wise to go on with the pulp mill.
