Ottawa, Ont., Feb. HO—An Important discussion arose In the Hotiae of Com mons yesterday In regard to the Govern ment ownership of Canadian railways as a means of preventing their acquisition by American capitalists. It was shown that alarm was rapidly spreading throughout the Dominion over the pros pect of the ultimate absorption of the Urand Trunk and Canadian Pacific rail roads by the Morgan- Hill-ltockefeller syndicate. Mr. MoLean, Conservative, pointed jut the grave danger that menaced the country from the possibility of Canadian railways tailing Into the bands of Ameri cans, who,he laid, oould now easily ac quire them. He quoted President Sbuugnes8*y of the Canadian Pacific as saying that It was quite possible for the Axuerloan combine to get that road and that $i*U,U00,U00 would do it. MoLean said that even now the Grand Trunk and Canadian Paclo were a serious detriment to Canadian Interests, as they were dis criminating against Canadian ports and waterways in favor of American ownerr. The tight yesterday was between New* York and Boston against the fcit. Law rence route. He advocated Government uwnmsbip and said that leia than $M),000,000 would purchase sufficient stcck to secure control of both roads No con stitutional obetides, such as exlsttd in the United States, debarred Canada from owning these railways, which were and always had been antagonistic to the canal system of Canada. He announced that a strong party was forming In Can ada which would make State ownership or railways Its principal policy. McLean’s proposals ire Indorsed by many members on both sides of the House. The minister of railways, spsak lng ror the Administration, oarefully avoided making any declarations of polloy, but characterised the debate as prooeed lug upon purely noademlo propositions,no definite resolution to take over the rail reads being plaoed before the House Oth*r speakers contended that the mag nitude of the new power which had come Into existence on this continent with an unoonoealei intention of con trolling transportation between the two oceans gave ample cause for the great ap prehension now Lelng felt throughout Canada. Control of the Canadian Pa cific by foreign and possibly hostile cap italists was a contingency aaalnst which tte most decisive measures must ' • adopted. As an alternative to Govern ment purchase and as a simple method to obtain Government control, the sug gestion was advanced that the Dominion Government leass the Grand Trunk and the Canadian Paclilo for a nominal yearly rental The matter will oome up again to the form of definite proposals.

The note and mortgrg* were made out running to the plff Mr. Heath stating at the time of making the papers that it was hi* intention to give his niece. Allis lilckford, this amount of property. The note and the mortgage were left In the bands of an attorney in Portland, w:th Instructions to send them to Miss lilckford For some reason thli was never done. About two years after wards the nots was paid and the mortgage discharged. Mr. Heath asked the plff. at this time what he should do with the money, and she told him to reinvest It for her; but Mr. Heath died a few months afterwards without having dons this The other heirs now contend that the gilt was never completed, there nevei having been any delivery of the mortgage and note to the plff., and that therefore she cannot recover.

Nine out of ten old people are constipated because the muscles of their intestines have become weak, worn out and flabby. Constipation is the curse of old age, causes bile and acid poisons to remain in the blood, making the skin yellow and wrinkled, the eyes bleary and causing the “bones to ache.” Keep the bowels strong, healthy and regular and old age loses all its terrors and weak nesses. No reason why grandpa and grandma shouldn’t have bright eyes, and clear, ruddy skin and feel lively and active, if they will only keep their bowels open and vigorous with CASCARETS CANDY CATHARTIC, the greatest bowel tonic ever heard of.
