TK2 2G TBIS'JITE, THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1908. CONSlDEIslKG ESTIMATES Cutting a Swath in Society ON S CO E D Roisfliivis Number ot Items Were Tassed Yesterday G.T.IMt. Bill. Ottawa. .May The House spent a nulet ()h.v in supply. The prlnclpa.1 Item passed was the civil service estl-mateB for several of the departments. Ihe opposition showed that they had no Intention of depriving any officials of their salaries, anil allowed these Items to go through. A number of mounled police estimates also were passed. These, however, do not affect the main Issue, ami the one-eighth supply was not touched, nor will it he allowed to no through until Sir Wll-1 rid Iyaurler actually Introduces his amendment to the Aylesworth bill, which provide for no discrimination against Manitoba. Unnecessary Extravagance. When the House went Into committee of supply on the Mounted Police estimates, Hon. O. K. Foster raised the question of sending Capt. Bernler up to assert Canada's Jurisdiction In northern waters. In his view the mounted I.ollce were doing the work and the tending of Capt. Bemier was an unnecessary extravagance. ' The premier's reply was that Capt. Bemier went further north than do the mounted police. He pointed out that Canada had lost Rkagway through failure to assert her Jurisdiction there. In reply to another question by Mr. l'oster. Sir Wilfrid stated that Saskatchewan and Alberta each paid seventy-five thousand dollars annually towards, the upkeep of the mounted police in the two provinces. It was about one-third of the cost. John Hermn made a plea for better pav for the mounted police. He criticized the smallness of the reward ' fered for the discovery of the murderer of the mounted policeman recently shot at Frank. On the latter point, the premier replied that the force was limited by law to $200 as a reward. On the other question he made not statement. Post Office Estimates. When the post office estimates were up, Mr. Bergeron called attention to the commnets of the civil service commission on the employment o women. Mr. Lemleux said that women employees, were in the department before he became minister. They had been doing their work satisfactorily and he did not see his way clear to remove them. However, he would prefer men If he could get them. On the subject of letter carriers' uniforms, also raised by Mr. Bergeron, who called them "ridiculous," the postmaster-general announced his Intention to" give the letter carriers Home additional pay to encourage them to keep their uniforms "natty with creased trousers." "Rather hard to keep trousers creased with only one suit for rain or shine," commented Mr. Bergeron. "They have rain cloaks," said Mr. Lemieux. In all votes for Jl.109,000 were passed. G. T. P. R. Bonds. Hon. W. S. Fielding Introduced ana explained the proposed act In respect to the government guaranteed bonds ol the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company. The bill, he said, had three objects. The first Is to authorize th6 lirand Trunk Pacific to pledge, for th purpose of raising money, bonds which aro guaranteed by the government. This was Intended In the original legislation In respect to the bonds, but the proper machinery had not been available. The second object arises from the recent Judicial decisions In England to the effect that when bonds are pledged tliey are deemed to have been issued and the power to Issue them ceases. The bill would make it clear that the pledging of the bonds will not Interfere with the right to sell them later on. Mr. Fielding said these Judgments may itrect other companies and general legislation may be required later on. The third object of the bill Is to facilitate the construction of the railway and avoid delay by providing that the government may Issue i letter of credit to the Grand Trunk Pacific for an amount not exceeding one million dollars out of the proceeds of the guaranteed bonds. The expenditure of this money must be limited to the objects set forth in the act respecting the National Transcontinental railway, and must be duly accounted for. If it is found that the money has been used for other purposes It must be made good. The iirand Trunk, the parent company, will be made responsible for any money wrongly spent. In reply o questions put by Dr. Sproule and Hon. 11. K. Foster, Mr. Fielding said this arrangement does not create any new obligations, or add to any former obligations. The letter of credit would not be chargeable against the con-lolldated funds, or constitute an advance to the company. Missing Ballots. R. L. Borden brought up the question of the Ktanstead bye-election ballots, which were found missing when required recently in connection with the protest. Whatever suspicions might fxlst as to the cause of the dlsappear-wce, he was quite sure no suspicion Ltiirarr'iajiv.v . i nvi i r y s Kg could attach to the late cleric crown In chancery, Mr. Lamothe. It did not seem, however, that the government had taken proper precautions to ensure the safety of these papers which affected tho seats of members. The room in which they were kept was accessible to many persons, and one or two keys would open all the various bolts in the room. He thought a departmental enquiry should be made to ascertain. If possible, the cause of the disappearance. sir Wilfrid Luurler replied that he was convinced that the ballots had disappeared prior to tho death of Mr. Lamothe. He would be pleased to have an enquiry, and would move in the house tomorrow that the matter be referred to the committee on privileges and elections, or to a special committee, If so desired. VICTORIA'S SENSATION Trial of a Dentist and Medical Doctor on a Serious Charge. Victoria, B. C, May 20. Dr. Richard J. Oaresche, dentist, and Dr. Richard Carter, prominent professional men of Victoria, today appeared before Judge Lampman. charged with performing a criminal operation on Katie Glenn Mcintosh, the seventeen-year-old daughter of a prominent and old time family here. The girl was on the witness stand all day, and the case will be resumed tomorrow. The tflrl, amid outbursts ot grief, told of her life for the past two years. She told how In Vancouver she had been the sport of men prominent in the business and social life of that city, had been induced to enter a notorious house run by Ruth Owens, had been surrounded by fallen women and banders, and had finally been rescued from her immoral surroundings by a leading Vancouver business man, who had communicated with her parents, and had hsr sent home to Victoria. Since her return she had been cm-ployed In Pr. Garesihe's office, with whom she had been intimate. At his request she consented to undergo an operation, and his friend, Dr. Carter, performed the operntlon, but not before she had consented to submit ta Indignities from him. Ild 750. In his efforts to hush the matter up, Dr. Uareaclin paid the girl's mother t'oO, admitting he was responsible for her condition, but when the girl became 111 the fact of the illegal operation became known, and both doctors were charged with the criminal offense. The police investigation showed that In her two years of shame the girl had been Intimate with many of the prominent men of both roast cities, and It Is expected before the trial ends there will be sensational evidence submitted. Both defendants, who have been out on $25,000 ball since the preliminary hearing, have been practising here for several years. Garesche being a man of wealth and wll connected. v f 1 5. V.S Alfred CVanderMf H0SSACK GIVES UP HIS PULPIT "Abolish the Bar," His Cry Letter of Besignatiou .Read at Church. Fishing Leases. Ottawa, May 20. In the upper house, numerous petitions In favor ot the Juvenile delinquents bill were presented. Senator MacDonaid of British Columbia was told that when the government leases fishing rights In the western lakes It does not give a monopoly of the waters to the lessee and the lake cannot be assigned without the consent of the minister of marine. Toronto, May 18. To be free to conduct his campaign in North Toronto, Rev. D. C. Hossack has resigned the pastorate of Deer Park Presbyterian church. His letter of resignation was read at the close of last night's service, and was pretty much of a surprise. The letter makes it clear that "Abol ish the bar" will be the leading plank In Mr. Hossack's election campaign. Letter of Resignation. Mr. Hossack's letter was as follows: Dear Mr. Thomson I hereby tender my resignation as minister of Deer Pafk Presbyterian church. I do this with great regret, as my relations with the congregation have been most pleasant. It Is a satisfaction that the congregation is not only harmonious but strong and vigorous. On account of the character of the district, It is clear that the congregation will soon be one of the largest and most Influential, not only in the city, but In the whole country. I am resigning that I may deal in a public and practical way with a great moral question, which has 'been discussed academically, but without that result which has been desired. I refer to the abolition of the bar. The academic question of personal liberty Is not Involved, as I am not referring to prohibition. The bar, as an institution of our province, In the opinion of very many, Is a social blight, a menace to morality, and an economical burden. It Justifies its own banishment. The miseries which spring from It appeal to all men to abolish it. As It is a provincial institution, every citizen Is personally responsible and cannot discharge his responsibility ty silence. Those who now suffer by this institution are calling for help. I, for one. am not prepared to decline that call. I hope and believe that the church will prosper abundantly. It is a great satisfaction to my family and myself to know that we are to remain here, where we have so many friends. With kind regards, I remain, sincerely yours, D. C. HOSSACK-Toronto, May 18, 1908. For 8ix Years. Mr. Hossack has been pastor of the Deer Park congregation for six years. Prior to that he was pastor of Orange-vllle Presbyterian church and Dunn Avenue Tresbyterlan church, Park- He is also a lawyer by profes- In his now famous letter to O. W. Ross in 1904, Mr. Iiossaclc devoted considerable space to the temperance question: and roundly scored the Pre miers failure to reoeem nis pieoges. He also censured him for taking in O. P. Graham and A. O. MacKay, who "wrecked the temperance resolution" at the great Liberal convention. W. C. T. U. Meeting Postponed. The meeting of the W. C. T.
