company for several years and ihe pe< -
pie found him to be made of the right
stuff, honest, industrious, temperate and
companionable. As a result when he
got ready to go Into business he found it
easy, because he had the confidence of
buainess men, and The Heiahl is glad io
know that he hia done well. A good
many young meu in Cranbrook are sit—

Tbe following from an exchange gives
another phiae ofthe strike question:
The walking Delegate never tired talking about the strike. He held lhat it
was justifiable if ever • strike was and
he wis prepared to demonstrate that it
was perfectly proper lo strike lo secure
a desired result. He told his wife and
she appeared to agree gwith him. She
said it seemed the easiest way. ■
That night when he went home he
found that the table was not set.
"I want a new dress," she said, when
he asked what the trouble was,
"1 know. You've bothered me for
that new dress for a month," he said.
'Now I want my supper."
-'There isn't any," sbe replied.   -'This
is a strike."
'A strike?"
'Yea.   I'vi   been   trying   tn secure a
peacahlt settlement of  this trouble for
some time; now I've struck,"
'Do you dare—"
Oh, don't talk to me that way If I
can't gel you to arbitrate, why, I've got
to go on strike."
"Hnt, Mary, you don't understand,"
'-Yes, I do I've made my demands
and they hive lieen refused. I've asked
for arbitration with a view to compromise, and that has also heen refused.

"Aren't you hungry?"
"No.   I saw that tbere wia something

The British   Empire   Stands at the
South E.       Kootenay   Shown
be One oi the Best Districts
on thc Continent
J, L Parker, the well known superintendent of the Norlh Star mine, was one
ofthe speakers at tbe Jamieson banquet
last week. Ills subject whs mining and
he prepared some data, but ns the time
wus limited lie lnul to hastily run over
tbe principal points. At ihe request of
The Herald lie put his talk into shape
for publication, giving mote In detail
than it was possible at a banquet. It la
as follows:
The importance of mining in the British Empire is best evidenced by ligures
and the following, having been culled
from the best sources of information
available, are herewith presented.
During 1903 the Empire is responsible
for over one billion dollars ot minerals,
in the seven principal substances. She
produced two-thirds of lhe gold, one-
third of tbe coal, aud one fourth of the
iron produced In the entire world.
Canada produced $64,970,7^(1, nnd
Britisn Columbia $ 17,203 736. All these
figures are estimated, but will be fouud
to be approximately correct.
In I901, the Canadian minerals
amounted to (66,712708 and British
Columbia iu comparison with Canada
iu that year was responsible for 30
per cent of the total mineral production.
Sbe produced 97 per cent of the silver,
91 per cent of tbe lead, 67 per cent of
the copper, 34 per cent of the coal, and
22 per cent of the gold, of the total Can-
ad inn production.
Whilst 1902 shows a loss of 81,741,976.
British Columbia shown one of $2,883 044
due principally to the falling off in
values of 4 cents per pound ira^opper,
and in lead from f77 50 per ton to f$u
per ton, and 6 cents per ounce hi silver.
There is also another loss due the falling
away in the output of lead, fur we find
that the year 1900 was responsible fur
31,679 tons, ami 1901 25,791 tons, and
1902 11.500 tuns, showing a marked diminution iu the output, caused by the
bad prices, which gradually Ml from
/'iS per ton ol 2240 pounds in the spring
of 1900 to / 10 per ton at the end of the
past year.
Whilst in 1900 out best year, the output wns 31 679 tons of lead we figure,
with favorable conditions, nnd running
36 006 tons per annum.
In 1902 therefore, the output being
11,500 tons only, amounting to one-thlid
of what Is considered by those most com
peteut to judge to be the natural output,
once the proper conditions prevail, The
output of minerals for 1902 is estimated
from that of 1901, with the loss in metals
deducted, The totals of coal are not lo
hand, aud lor tbe purpose of tbe estimate, they may be considered as being
about the same as 1901
The totals ill 1900 were:

for 1902 in Uritish Columbia.
Turning our nttetiilion to Hint Koolenay, we find that conl has been the most
prominent factor in the mineral wot Id
The Crows Nest I'ass Cotl company
mined 393.961 tons being an increase
over 1901 of 14 6116 ions, of this amount
170,460 were converted Into coke, producing 107,837 ions an compared wiih
111,683 tons in the previous year. Of
this coke 36,,'64 tons were sold In ihe
United States, and 81,073 tons in Canada, The total coal exported was 101,-
764 tons and consumed in Canada, 121,-
737 tonB.
The progress however of this company's operations was blocked for nearly
one half of tbe year, with accidents and
strikes. So that 1903, once the present
strike la settled and barring accidents,
should tee a considerably increased tonnage. Iu metal mining the North Star
mine has been the principal shipper.
It shipped 3 780 tons of galena of the
gross value of $138,853.
The only other well known properties
that bave done any considerable work,
have been the Ptarmigan aud Paradise,
but thc patlculars nre not available at
A revision and study of these figures
show that Biitish Columbia bas suffered
from   a serious  drop  of 4  cents  per
pound in the copper couteuts of the ores
anil that lead lias lnul a gradual decline
in price, during the year, imltl nt the
close It reached Ji "to per ton of 1240
pounds being £H len than In the spring
of 1900, As we do not have nny copper
mines at present in Kust Koolenay, the
drop in copper has not effected us, but
that ol bad has had a very serious Bib-clou the Industry, ns the st. Bugene
mine is cHpabie, it is reliably reported
oi prtiduciug mul tons of concentrates
per inoiith, lias been stiul down and the
Sullivan with a latge amount ol ore in
light has shown the same fate.
Tlie price ol lead for us unfortunately
lependH upon the London market, ever
since the lead trust ofthe States refused
Intake Canadian ores. This price Is the
or'd's price and since the Mexican and
Spanish ores miued by cheap labor,
in tbe price in tbe Loudon market, our
Canadian ores mined by our high rate
of labor have to contend with them.
Owing also to the duty ugsinst lend being in Canada only 15 per cent with
one-third less ililTerenttal in favor of
Knglaml and on red and white lead being
only live per cent less one-third diffei-
lial in favor of Knglnnd, the Canadian
lead has practically no protection. The
Uulted Slates lead trust, mines the
Mexican cheap lead which is admitted
iu bond into the States, there refined
and passed along Into Canada 011 paying
11 small charge.
It Is therefore at once apparent thai
our ores are up against severe economic
conditions and having vainly struggled
against such unfair competition, the industry has been slowly strangled and
the small output in 1902 Is therefore
fully accounted for. Only those mines
that are tbe richest in silver contents
bave been enabled to work, whereas south
ol us In Idaho an enormous output
of lead concentrates have been shipped
In the Coeur d'Alene district which have
been produced from ores aseayiug ten
percent lead ami seven ounces silver
per ton. Iu 1900*10,000,000 of lead concentrates were shipped, and in 1901
$7,5<jd,ixxi from 150,000 tons of concentrates.
During 1901 Ihe lead trust restored
the output, hut as this restriction in 1902
was taken off the yeai'soutput will have
greatly exceeded these figures. Tbe
reason for this tonnage is due the price
of lead whicb lo ibe American mine
owners was three and a half per cent.
as against ours 1.3 cent per pound.
Figuring ores of equal values In each
country we have the following fur the
value of tbe lend contents.
United States mine owners 40 per cent
lead ore less 10 per cent 725 pounds nt
Canadian mine owners 40 per cent lead
ores less 10 per cent 720 pounds at 1.3
equals $9.36.
The lead contents in the former more
than pay all the freight and treatment
charges, whilst our ores do not commence to pay tbem and tbe dlflereuce
of 81584 per ton In favor of the mining
prosperity in the United States as
against Canadian lead mining properties
on ores of equal grade explains why
prosperity rules iu the Coeur d'Alene district and adversity has Its sway in the
Sandon and Kast Kootenay districts of
British Columbia.
The advance io tbe price of lead of
late haa caused a much better feeling,
but how much of this advance iB due
the manipulations of the lead trust is a
conjecture and is only hinted at.
We do know that now its, agents
are assuring us that the reason they left
the country wis, because of the high
charges for freight by the Canadian
Pacific railway.
Tbat this is not the case can he readily proved if necessary, and those of ua
who are studying lhe methods of this
trust, are forced to the conclusion that
its action now, are to blind the eyes of
the Canadian government and to cause
it to refuse our request, the request of
fifty-two ofthe largest mining companies
to increase the duties on lead ores and
lead coming into Canada.
This request of ours may be truly
called the remedy for the bad lend situation of past years, viz. to place one and
a half cents per pound duty on all lead
coming into Canada in the shape of
ores, and with a gradual increasing scale
on thc manufactured lead products.
This would give us the Canadlnn
market for about one-third of tbe product, and we would sell the two-thuds
nt the world's price. The price of lead
pioilucts would not be advanced, as lor
example, at the present time the price
of paint Is the same iu both din mln and
the United States and we hold that with
home refineries and corroding works
established (ihe-e are promised if the
duties are increased,) this price would
not he decreased by the additional new
duties as is asserted hy some.
In 1900 we had 2500 miners at work in
the Slocan and in Kast Kootenay and in
the ye0r just passed 500, but with the
suggested changes tn the tariff we would
return to the era ot prosperity in 1900,
and Increase it with the protection asked, encouragement would he given the
mines closed down, mines like the Sullivan and St. Eugene which if their
location were in the United States would
hive been working Hnd paying handsome
dividends. Why should ihe 49th parallel
divide success nnd failure. Simply because the United States has the most sue
cessful and scientific tariff In the world
and has fixed it to suit her own necessities
ib is natural.

bodies of low grade ore, prospictl
whicli if f»ouih of tbe 49*b parallel
would be working and their product
concentrated by half a score of coucen-
tritorfl as is being done in the Cceui
d'Alene district from similar properties,
Until hov.ever the government decides
on Its policy we may expect that moat
of the lead mines will lie shut down, for
we view tbe present increaard price of
k-ad with suspicion, and upon the government decision depends in • great
measure the success or failure of tbe
lead industry ln British Columbia.
Turing our attention to tht coal fields
of the Crows Nest Pass railway, and as
a mining engineer wbo has beeu in the
past nssoclatetl as engineer and manager
of collerien mining from 500 to 1500
tons of coal per ilay, I may he allowed
to speak with some knowledge of the
subject, and to express my conviction
that the Crows Neat Pass Coil field,
whilst playing a most important part in
the business life of this section la distilled from the valuable character and analysis and thickness of Its cual seams to
play a greater part in the industrial
world iu the future. Wherever coal has
heen found of similar quality and thickness and spread over such a large area,
as this appears to do, man 11 facluring
Industries have lieen established. And
wheu we Bre informed- although I have
uot yet seen mvm, that adjacent to this
coal field discoveries of large bodies of
bessetiier iron ore have been made with
limestone in abundance, I can see little
reason to doubt that somewhere in Kast
Kootenay we will eee another I'itlsburg,
possibly a miniature one, but a town of
similar industrial capabilities. Whilst
waiting for a market for the iron or
steel, .he collerles will be worked lo
their fullest extent, siuce the northwest Is opening up rapidly. But the south
will, I am reasonably certain, take all
the surplus coal, since there Is no coal
field west of Cnnnelsville, Pi., tbat has
coal ofthe quality and quantity of our
coal field. West at Wilkeson, Washington, there is a small bituminous coal
fie'd, but it bas sufficient to do to supply its local necessities, and Its distance,
makes competition impossible. Tbe
same remark applies to the coal field 00
Vaucouver Island, 10 that the Crows
Nest Pass coal field can be looked upon
ns being essentially necessary to both
Canada, and the bordering American
States, and I do not think it to be any
exaggerated statement to make, tbat inside of ten years 10,000 tona of coal per
day will be mined in tbis coal field-
This means a large number of miners,
and a larger population, and with tbe
great Northwest growing, cloth, dress-
goods, shoes, and the hundred and one
articles necessary for tbe population will
he needed, so that I expect tbe falls at
Bull river to he harnesaed, and mills
established. Later on ib we grow, ind
a market for pig iron and steel la fouud
possibly In tbe orient, I foresee blast
furnaces, bessetiier steel converters and
rolling mills at work, and Kast Kootenay teeming witb busfnest life and
activity. Iu conclusion allow me to
state tbat whilst tbe Canadian Pacific
railway is likened by some to a gigantic
octopus sucking the life blood of tbe
nation, whose tentacles are reaching out
for anything and everything it can embrace, particularly just now coal lands,
yet without lt Canada, would be in appendage to tbe States or would be revel'
IlLg In Its primeval condition. Its
branch lines, the Crows Neat Pisa railway and the Boundary branch, west,
have been of tremeudoui importance to
British Columbia, and not many railroad
corporations would have been bold
enough to have built the latter roid, at
the lime the C. P. K. built it. Ita coat
was fully $40,000 per mile, and when
ready for tbe promised shipments, tbey
did not materialize. Liter however the
reward came and In 1901, one of the
branch lines of this western boundary
livisioti, paid one 70th ofthe total gross
earnings of thc entire Canadian Pacific
railway system. Its officers are aa a
rule ns careful of its Interests and aa
ugrcenble to its patrons, as are the
officers of any other corporation, and in
being present at this complementary
dinner to Mr, Jamieson, I desire to
state that we have always received moat
courteous attention to our acquirement!

The Raymond Chronicle Is the name
ol a new canditate in the Journalistic
Hell. It is published in the new town
south of Lethbridge, by Messrs. Sanders
& Matheson. It Is a neat looaUig sheet
and If kept up to the standard will be a
success. ___
We call the attention of The Herald
readers to the article on the first page
written by J, L Parker, superintendent of the North Star mine. It Is the
most comprehensive and Instructive
article on mining that has been published in a llritisli Columbia paper for
years. No man Interested lu mining
and lhe welfare of this province can
afford to miss reading It.
The best advertisement that S iutb
Uaat Kootenay can have Is a grand
showing In the production of her lead
and coal mines and lumber mills, li
looks now as If this showing will be
made at the close of this year.
It must amuse the lumbermen to read
ofthe indignation of Mr. McNichol ot
the C. P, It. over what he terms the
abuses of the lntnher trusts. The lumbermen are paying for their stumpage,
building their own mills, and not asking or receiving any subsidy In either
cash or lands, ami are entitled to a fair
prodt.   That Is all they are receiving.

Capt. Dernler's Plan.
The plan ot Capt. Bernler to reach
the North Pole Is to sail up the Pacilic coast, through Bering Straits,
and northward tu the Ice pack, to enter it, and trust to the currents,
which Captain Beinier thoroughly
understands, to carry his vessel, imprisoned in the lee, past the pole towards the eastern const of (Jrein-
land. He will cover fifty miles on
each side of his course with sledge
parties, make surveys, take suiind-
ings, and gather all possible information. The search for the northwest passage, then fur the lost
Franklin expedition, and finally for
the north pole, hus tempted many
dating adventurers and led to many
unfortunate and disastrous results.
The practical benefits to follow success are as yet problematical, says
The Globe, but It would be over-bold
to auy that uny addition to the sum
of human knowledge will be of no
use. It is generally a sublime curiosity that prompts the patient worker to unlock the secrets of nature.
Then comes the practical man, who
turns the new knowledge to a multitude of uses. The secrets of the pole
and the observations und soundings
made there may be turned to many
uses not now contemplated. And even if the demand for practical results Is not met, thero will be un inspiring influence In the consciousness
of man's crowning triumph over nature, where her Btringhold has been
so long Impregnable.

She lnul always longed for ancestors,
mul now thut sin- had established the
fact tlmt she hud u revolutionary one
her cup of Joy was filled to overflow*
Ing. Tin* hoUBO lu which ahe lived had
lii'inn^.'ii to an old American family
which lnul long ago lapsed iutu hopeless bankruptcy.
The way uf Mrs. &teltou to preferment an the descendant of revolutionary stuck lutil been the road uf the
rough. She hud nt lirst applied tu the
Daughters of the Real Convolution,
who required tlmt all candidates tor
iiiliiiissinii must ho descended in the
male lino from uu officer who fought lu
the wur for American Independence,
"Shall I send ln my family records?"
ehe asked of the secretary uf the order.
"it,will not be necessary," was the
reply* "We have your mime, uud It
-will be m easy tu hnd out all abuut
you, my dear Mrs, Melton."
Mrs.   Melton   was   overcome   with
vp-satlnn a  week later when  she re- \
cetved notlllcatlou from the grand see- j
retury Hint her application could not
be granted fur the reason that her an- I
cestor, Colonel Bntnbrldge Tnrlton, bad j
been su unfortunate as to have com-
manded a regiment of Hessians,
On this disappointment tbe Dntigh- I
ters of the Perpetual Evolution had
been founded and Mrs. James Henry
Melton became tho first regent of a ,
new   chapter.    Ancestors   frum   the |
feminine side of the hoUBe were ac- j
cepted.   Sbe   hnd   purchased   the old
bouse on the outskirts uf the raetrepo- |

fortablo dwolllng botiBo at tbe best,
nml Mrs, Melton frowned upon modem
improvements, The rooms were gradually lined with strange wares from
antique shops und tho building was
dedicated ns n |icr|>ctual Bhrluo to the
father of his country, There was un
oak ou! on tbo lawn which n young
1'ii'iich uiiicer bad planted. Tbere wns
also ii stutoly elm supposed to have
I ii placed therein Its Infaticy by tbo
hands ur tho great liberator himself.
The house became tbo headquarters of
tbo Daughters of tbe Perpetual Evolution, and now there was talk ur 10*
It'cibiK Mis. Melton uh the grand regent of Ibe onler In the DnltOll Stoles.
The organisation bad grown nmi Mrs.
Meltun wns engaged lu making por-
Blatant avowals ot ber un worthiness to
be the head uf such a distinguished
body, Tbe reception which ihe was
kIvi'hk un the duy preceding tiie annual election wiih sol-zed upon hy sume
of Mrs. Melton's friends ns mi opportunity to Increase bor capital ai a Candida to.
Under sueh circumstances and with
ber mind upon such Inrge ambitious, It
wns exceedingly distasteful to bor that
young John Dunstan should persist In
bis attentions to her dnugbtor. Isabel
Melton bad Ideas of hor own, ami ahe
bad on several occasions expressed un*
sympathetic opinions of the Daughters
of the Perpetual Evolution. She had
not even asked for admission to the
local chapter. Such heresy as this Mrs.
Melton could attribute only tu the lntlu-
cuce of young Mr. Dunstan. He made
{washing soda which be called by n patriotic name. The title wus emblazoned
on the fences along many miles of
railroad. To Mrs. Melton it seemed
remarkable that a daughter of hers
should look with favor on anybody
who was not of the purest Revolution-
rry strain. There wus Itlcliurd Waldo-
tor Perkins, for instance, who fulfilled
c cry condition of eligibility. He wus

ablo to see the people do not seem

this mny lie in the fact that it has
never been brought before the people
as u practical Issue since thu first
time confuderatlou wns discussed. Ws
therefore see much more uf thu question in your Canadian papers than
anywhore also. In su fur us the
thought uf the country is concernud
1 believe for Hie must part the poo-
pie who read unit think, look with
favor upon tho idea, but the working man of Newfoundland is dccldod-
ly opposed to it.
■i>ne uf the chief reasons why confederation is not a live question is, I
think, on account uf the prosperity and Improvement iu the general
condition of ibe people during the
lust two or three years, Tbe colony
has been on the up grade, the fisheries bave been good and the people
fuel fairly well satisfied to remain us
tbey are, Then, too, there is abroad
n har thut confederation wuuld mean
direct taxation and tor this we us a
colony are no! propared. Mur en-
lire revenue is rulsrd by Import duties and always has been,    ami    it
would tuke uur people u good while
to adapt themselves to the principle
of direct taxation in any form. Further th« average llshernnwi is possessed of tiie idea that union with
t'nttida would mean an increase of
officialism nnd wiih this he is already
leirlbty burd ned,
"Newfoundland being an Island or
soino SliO.OOO population, wiih agriculture very limited, and wllh fishing as a staple Industry, n market
for our fish is esiH'iitinl  ami  ill this
regard our fishermen look with much
favor upon a scheme uf reciprocity

does not want mu* fish and our trade

Mr. Dunn ulsu spoke Interestingly
of th' system of education which pre-
vu lei    on    the   Island,   Ths chief
i-hui. Ju-s thorn wi-re Uu- Kujnibii ('uth

Legislative grunt being made per

This plan of education worked    vory

The Magyars are steadily increasing in numbers over the Qeiinkans
aud the dozen or more other nationalities prominently represented tn
Jolm Thompson und other prominent
flguros m the political hlstoo ol Uar-
As Indicating tin- lightness uf tho
touch ui sir Jolm, Mr McUougull related his cipcriciit-c when he went to
bim iu gut his aid in preventing Borne
oxpetidiiuie.     "Sir John,  tbat    will
not   do   the  liuveriiliienl   itli.v   good,"
be remarked, uud Sir John Immediately  replied,  "No,  nu,  yuu ttt'O qultfj
right, it would only give rascally
tii its hi,,, you u ground to run up  and
down the concessions abusing us. You
can always   count upon me   helping
you. Ho sure to cull Upon me when
anything like thut occurs." il.uui'ii-
ter.)   Mr. itcHougull related    other
ttiiocdoti-H uf iiilei'views with Sir
John, Who, be Said, wus, lie knew,
turn Ink bim inside out, but thero
wus something pleasant to feel that
he was operated tin by so skillful u
surgeon that there wus not a scar
toll. (Luud laughter.) Mr. McDoug-
ull said he wus also warmly assisted
b.v Sir Mackenzie Howell, who waa
his personal friend, although a political opponent when they were In 1'ur-
liament together,
Dwelling u, on tho responsibilities
of auditing the accounts ot the Dominion, Mr. McIIoukuII said: "A public servant, like any other servant,
although engaged fur a special duty,
is u faithful servunt only when ins
eyes uro open tu tiie general interests
of his master us well us to the spe-
lial," He explained the routine uf
expenditure of the public money of
the Dominion, concerning which tho
general public hove but a dim and
hazy idea. There are, he said, two
general methods uf making payments:
First, by Itoeelver-Qenorol's cheilites,
and, second, by cheques drawn under
letters of credit. Receiver-General's
cheques are, ns a rule, confined in
their issue to payments for contracts
of magnitude on monthly estimates,
und to repay the bunks, chiefly the
Hunk of Montreal, for letter-of-credit
cheques Issued by tbo departments at
Ottawa, or their servants in remote
parts of the Dominion, Cheques of
nil kinil-s are made payable to the
order of tlie public creditor. Why ?
Because his andorsutton shows better
(hiui uny Special receipt thut he has
received the amount, and because no
one through Whose hands it might
necessarily puss amid withhold any
putt or the amount,
Thete is lltUCh more use of tbe letter-of-credit system that would ut
lirst sight seem consistent with a
careful safeguard of the public purse
from Improper payment.   The public
m 1 nit in greatly startled when Information reaches it that there is u payment before audit. Hut- anyone can
seo that a most Important step   has
been mude  if   puvuiciit   without   deluv*
accompanies a process which removes
tin- mokt import-ant dangers of Irregularity, Credits are never Issuod to
a single person, except when there Is
a choice only between issuing a credit* to him for advances lo himself, us
muy be required, and issuing u direct
Chcquo ul once for tbe whole amount
of thc credit Tbo credit le in the
name ol two public servants of prominence, geiieiullv the depulv   of tho
department and the accountant, ur
auch substitutes us muy tie entrusted
with the performance of their   duties
under ordcr-m Council, generally during their absence, Credits are issued
where | u> meats  are   required   to     bo
made at distant points, uml without
delay, to porinancnt otftcjnls,    Now,
it serins  manifest   that  We CannOI hoi
tt seems manifest that wo cannot
hold the bank nn Which the credits
issue fur any improper amount unless
lis neglect were must palpable. You
will, therefore,  inquire what     Is     llio
Justification for giving su much latitude.
Theerodlts being to men o( promt-
nenco, who ure presumably Intellectually und otherwise roll ablo, thu Hrst
source of confldedce is secured. To
bring about misappropriation it
would be nccoiiaty that both should
bo dishonest, and that one ot them
should suggest tbe dlBbonest action
tu the other, and therefore put himself In  the    Intuitu    uf  the  latter,      A
cheque mice drawn■ the amount of  it
cannot be refunded, uml therefore l he
amount of a cheque cannot be simply
bm rowed Al tbe end uf tbo month
u statement ol cheques drawn, giving
the number uf ouch and the amount
in sent- to the main office for repayment to the bunk. Under this system
there is uo money to bo accounted
fur fiy the disbursing officers, They
have the means of paying without
having any money to handle. Th.'ie
is, therefore, no fear that if a statement of vouchers is not sent in, it is
because thu holders of tbu credit have
to account for money which has been
Used by themselves. The best evidence of Iho success of the method in
the one respect of Its security uguhist
defalcations la that none has occurred, so fur its I can recollect.
Thu probability of dilTerences between the department and the Ministers respecting the practice to he followed , nnd the desirability of adopting definite rules were touched upon
by Mr. McHougall, who spoke also of
amendments which he deems necessary to render his work more
perfect. Incidentally, he remarked
that It is not generally known that a
Parliamentary audit owes its origin
In Canada to lion- Edward Blake,
"that wonderful man, who works like
a slave on every detail of anything
which he takes up, and yet grasps a
subject with the greatest quicknoss,"
