DUNCAN ROSS MAKES FALSE CHARGES
Mr. Duncan Ross, M. P., for Yale-Cariboo, is not taken seriously by the people of British
Columbia, and as far as this province is concerned his contribution to the discussion of the Japanese immigration question, delivered in the House of Commons on Wednesday last, would
very properly be regarded as unworthy of notice. But he is a member of Parliament and the
E astern Canadian public, which does not know him except as a representative from British Columbia, might be disposed to attach some importance to his utterances should they go uncontradicted. That is the misfortune under which we lie when we send to Parliament men of Mr.
R oss' stamp.
As has been pointed out on more than one occasion the chief service which Mr. Ross performs in parliament when he is not occupied with the care of bills for private corporations, is to
do for the Government work to which none of the other members of the House, not even the
other British Columbia members, will stoop. And in performing this service, while he is never
scrupulous as regards the truth, his zeal on behalf of his masters often carries him to absurd
lengths in the statements he makes. We had an illustration of that in the charges in which he
indulged against Hon. W. J. Bowser and Premier McBride on Wednesday last.
In dealing with the Japanese immigration question it was not enough for Mr. Ross to credit
the Federal Government, in servile phrases with having it disposed of satisfactorily. Had he
been content to do this and this alone, his speech would have been ignored as an ordinary Ross
effusion, as the meaningless adulation of a party minion. But when in addition to beslobbering
his party leaders he indulges in calumnious accusations against members of the Government ot
this province he exceeds the license which is usually accorded even to such an irresponsible
political parasite as Mr. Duncan Ross. Of course the charges he makes are not only susceptible of disproof, but have already been shown to be entirely without foundation. It is an
abuse of Parliamentary privilege, however, that members of the Federal House should be able
with impunity to make such unmistakably malicious assaults on the reputations of others for
the purpose of obtaining a little political capital.���Vancouver Province.

.Washington, Jan. 29.���ln response to
a resolution introduced by Senator An-
keny and passed by tlie secretary of
the navy, transmitted lo the senate a
letter moving the estimates of the cost
of submarine torpedo boats delivered
at Puget Sound and Grays' Harbor on
lhe Pacific coast-
He said that under a recent contract
the navy had been offered 340 ton submarines for $389,000 and 270 ton submarines for $285,000.
Tbe navy department estimate tbat for
each boat ou the Pacific tbe cost would
be $378,000. in his letter to the secretary he says that: "In responding to the
query as to whether ln my opinion the
torpedo suggested are necessary for the
proper protection ot tbe waters heretofore named, 1 have to state that this
question is one that cannot without
difficulty be answered In general ternii.
Assuming the possibility of war, it
would be a gross vlolatiou of the first
principle of strategy for any nation to
send a naval expedition to operate at
a great distance from its sources of
supply and repair until the main baltle
fleet of the United Stutes had been reduced. And since our battle lleet Is
superior to that of any probable enemy*
on the Pacific, the theatre of war might
not be expected to reach the coast for
an indefinite Ume. In case of war the
ouly operation which would probably
offect the cost would be In the nature
of raids by small forces which would
doubtless hava. an Important bearing on
the outcome of the war."
The resolution provided that torepdo
bouts to be stationed on Puget Sound
und at Gray's Harbor, stale of Washington, It must be inadvisable that any appropriations be made by congress for
naval vessels to be constructed for exclusive employment In any specific locality ns herein proposed. All naval
vessels sboulal be available for service
at large and tbe power of directing the
place of manner and employment should
not be restricted. The policy of local
restriction would result In a serious
weakening of unions, power of offence
and defense, and It Is most earnestly
advised that no such policy should be
adopted.
TORONTO JNEMPLOYED
Board of Control  Investigating the Possibility  of Providing  Them
Work for City.
Toronto-, Jan. 29.���Mr. Albert Chamberlain, president uf the iJritish Welcome League, made the statement before the board of control that British
immigrants among the unemployed in
the city were not being properly treated
or given a chance. Frequently, he said,
men got tickets to go to work and then
they were turned away by the^foreruan
because they had no pick or shovel.
Mr. Chamberlain went so lar as to say-
that if these men did not get better
treatment the board of control "would
have one or two thousand men around
the city hall and they could get them iu
quick order."
He stated that last night ten men
came to him and said they got tickets
from the municipal labor bureau to go
to work. This put them in high glee,
but when they went to the place appointed they were told they could not
be taken uu because they had no
picks or shovels, aud one man who had
a pick was reiused because the pica
was not sharp. '1 hey said they were
sent to one Of the sewers now under
construction.
Air. Rust, City Engineer, was sent for
by the board of control, and he stated
that no men lit for the work on the sewers were turned away, and that provision wus made and would be made to
provide picks and shovels for those
who had none. He would not take meu
however, who were sent iudiscrimin
ately from the muuicipal labor bureau
most of whom "were not worth shucks
for that kind of work. The meweti
were built as local improvements and
he waa going to see that the work was
dene as a business enterprise, since tiie
ratepayers of the respective districts
had to pay for them. *
"The board concurred with this view
of Uie city engineer.
Another charge was then forthcoming
against the engineer's depar-tment. Mr.
Chamberlain said that Mr. Richard Patterson, foreman on one of the sewers,
had nine-tenths of his list composed of
Italians, aud that the British Immigrants were discriminated against.
Mr. Kust's reply to this was that the
Italians were particularly adapted for
this work.- and the gang employed under Mr. Patterson had been with him
all   the   past summer.
"There's something radically wrong
with the labor bureau if men are lent
to work where there is none for them,"
declared Controller Spence.
It was decided to get tho names of
the ten 'men who had been turned
away and find who was responsible for
sending them to work.

RIOTING   IN   LISBON.
Rebellious   Portugese  Scattered  by  Police With Revolvers.
Lisbon, Jan. 29.���There was an outbreak of political rioting on the streets
of this city this afternoon in which
shots were fired and some people
wounded. The disorder, However, was
of short duration.
The police had received an advance
warning, and they acted promptly. The
crowd made use of revolvers, and for a
few minutes the firing was heavy, but
lt rapidly gave way and was dispersed
before a show of force. An official
statement published after the encounter
says a number of persons received
mortal wounds.
There has been no further outbreak
and the city is now quiet.

No Part of Ross  Rifle Made in Canada
as  Called for  in  Contract.
Ottawa, Jan. 29.���Inquiry into the
payment bf the accounts of the Ross
Rifle company was resumed by the public accounts committee this morning.
Major Pyne, inspector of small arms,
who has been employed in the Inspection of the Ross rifles manufactured for
the department, waa called. He absolutely stated he had no feelings against
the Ross Rifle company, his endeavor
at all times being to treat the company
fairly. He had declined to sign certificates for advance payments to the company of 75 per cent on most of the rifles
because he could not tell accurately
what the labor and material employed
in the manufacture of the Ross rifle
had cost. He declared that no part ot
the Ross rifle was made entirely In
Canada, but it was only fair to say that
even the British government had to import some material.

GERMANY'S NAVAL PLAN
Fatherland    Admiralty    Determined   to
Rival Britain���Must Take Second
> Rank at Once.
Berlin, Jan. 29.���England's threat to
build two battleships of modern type
to every new vessel contracted for by
the German navy ls not taken seriously
in Berlin. The opinion prevails that a
damper will be put on the project in
the British parliament. The publication of the plans of England bas had
the effect of quieting opposition to the
navy budget of Germany, however.
Col. Gaedke, naval expert of the Berliner Tageblatt, ls of the opinion that
all the appropriations asked for in the
budget of 1908 will pass. These appropriations cover the first to the fourth
instalments on the following ships:
Nine battleships, of which two are ready
for service; four armored cruisers, of
which one has already been launched,
while the others are practically completed; Blx small cruisers, twenty-four
torpedo bouts of the same type as the
destroyers, another tender, and one
river gunboat.
Of these battleships seven will be of
the Dreadnaught type, and lt is rumored that three will be even larger. The
seven battleships building for Germuny
have an average displacement of more
than 11*.50(1 tons, and the armoured
cruisers under construction have displacements of from 5,000 to 19,000 tons
eai'h.
During the next three years three
battleships and one armored cruiser
will be built each year. As the building
of these ships will occupy but three
years, two years less than the time required in Prance to build such vessels
and considerably less than the United
States and England take to complete
similar ships, Germany will at tbe end
of 1914 have sixteen battleships of tho
Dreadnaught type and five armored
cruisers of the lnvlclble type,
Further, tho Berliner Tageblntt's expert shows thnt Germr.ny in 1920 will
have a fleet, of forty-seven battleships,
of which thirty two will have more than
18,000 tons displacement, and twenty
modern armored cruisers. Germany
thus Intends to stand second In rank to
England ns a naval power.
HIS CREDENTIALS
Mr. Lemieux Introduced
in Japan
BY BRITISH OFFICIALS
-+-
Canadian Envoy Specially Accredited by Colonial Office���Canada
From Ocean to Ocean.
Ottawa, Jan. 29.���Copies of the com-
mulcations which passed between Earl
Grey and the British government with
regard to Mr. Lemieux's mission to
Japan have been presented to parliament. On Oct. 13, lhe Governor-General cabled to 1-ord Elgin that Mr. Lemieux would sail for Japan on the 20th
"to discuss the situation in British Columbia with Sir Claude MacDonald and
the Japana.se government, with the object ot preventing the recurrence ot
events whereby tbe* happy relations
which have existed under the treaty between his Majesty's subjects in Canada
and elsewhere, and those of the Emperor of Japan might be disturbed. Will
you forward me credentials to show
that the approval and support ot the
Crown are given to Mr. i-euneux's mission?"
The Colonial Secretary replied four
days later, giving a draft of the message which it was proposed to send to
the British Ambassador at Tokio. It
was a paraphrase ot Earl Grey's original message, and concluded, "Inform the
Japanese government and present Mr.
Lemieux who will tie accompanied by
Mr. Joseph Pope, under secretary of
state to the proper authorities on arrival, and assist them in every way."
The Governor-General thereupon cables the colonial secretary that his
message was satisfactory.

Not  Ignoring City.
On account of an evident misunderstanding in some quarters ot the at-
tiiude of tlie Canada Zinc company, it
may be explained tbat it was not until

pra sent that tbe company began uego*

full approval of the late council.
Church  Indebtedness Cleared.
At tbe Sunday Service in the Church
of Mary Immaculate, the Rev. Father
Alt.boif announced tbo clearing off of
the sacred edilice. Some lime ago tlie
mortgage w'us redeemed and banded to
His Lordship Bishop Dontenwell; but a
small balance of the original cost of the
church, some $8,000, remained. The recent socials und contributions aided materially to paying off the small debt,
and the Father, who has been so
energetic in the work, congratulated the congregation on Ihe ownership of this valuable structure.
When he took charge of the parish the
dflit was large, but with lul'oniilable
Si'lf-sacrillce he undertook and carried
out the collection and payment of the
balance due.

DUNCAN ROSS MAKES FALSE CHARGES
Mr. Duncan Ross, M. P., for Yale-Cariboo, is not taken seriously by the people of British
Columbia, and as far as this province is concerned his contribution to the discussion of the Japanese immigration question, delivered in the House of Commons on Wednesday last, would
very properly be regarded as unworthy of notice. But he is a member of Parliament and the
E astern Canadiau public, which does not know him except as a representative from British Columbia, might be disposed to attach some importance to his utterances should they go uncontradicted. That is the misfortune under which we lie when we send to Parliament men of Mr.
R. oss' stamp.
As has been pointed out on more than one occasion the chief service which Mr. Ross performs in parliament when he is not occupied with the care of bills for private corporations, is to
do for the Government work to which none of the other members of the House, not even the
other British Columbia members, will stoop. And in performing this service, while he is never
scrupulous as regards the truth, his zeal on behalf of his masters often carries him to absurd
lengths in the statements he makes. We had an illustration of that in the charges in which he
indulged against Hon. W. J. Bowser and Premier McBride on Wednesday last.
In dealing with the Japanese immigration question it was not enongh for Mr. Ross to credit
the Federal Government, in servile phrases with having it disposed of satisfactorily. Had he
been content to do this and this alone, his speech would have been ignored as an ordinary Ross
effusion, as the meaningless adulation of a party minion. But when in addition to beslobbering
his party leaders he indulges in calumnious accusations against members of the Government ot
this province he exceeds the license which is usually accorded even to such an irresponsible
political parasite as Mr. Duncan Ross. Of course the charges he makes are not only susceptible of disproof, but have already been shown to be entirely without foundation. It is an
abuse of Parliamentary privilege, however, that members of the Federal House should be able
with impunity to make such unmistakably malicious assaults on the reputations of others for
the purpose of obtaining a little political capital.���Vancouver Province.

.Washington, Jan. 29.���In response to
a resolution introduced by Senator An-
keny and passed by tlie secretary of
the navy, transmitted to the senate a
letter moving the estimates of the cost
of submarine torpedo boats delivered
at Puget Sound and Grays' Harbor on
the Pacific coast.
He said that under a recent contract
the navy had been offered 340 ton sub-
marini's for $389,000 and 270 ton submarines for $285,000.
The navy department estimate tbat for
eaoh boat on the Pacific the cost would
be $378,000. In his letter to the secretary be says that: "Iu responding to tbe
query as to whether ln my opinion the
torpedo suggested nre necessary for the
proper protection of the waters heretofore named, 1 have to state that this
question is one that cannot without
difficulty S.e answered In general terms.
laimmli. the possibility of war, it
would be a gross violation of the first
principle of strategy for uny nation lo
send a naval expedition to operate at
a groat, distance from Its sources of
supply and repair until the main battle
lleet of tbe United States bad been reduced. And since our battle lleet Is
superior to that of any probable enemy
ou the Pacific, the theatre of war might
not be expected to reach the coust for
an Indefinite time. In case of war the
only operation which would probably
effect the cost would be in the nature
of raids by small forces which would
doubtless bavi' an Important bearing on
thai outcome of tho war."
The resolution provided that torepdo
boats to be stationed on Puget Bound
and at Gray's Harbor, stale of Washington, lt must be Inadvisable that any appropriations be made by congress for
naval vessels to bo constructed for exclusive employment In any specific locality as herein proposed. .Ml naval
vessels shouhl be available for service
at large and the power of directing the
place of manner and employment should
not be restricted. The policy of local
re strict Ion would result In a serious
weakening of unions, power of offence
and defense, and It ls most earnestly
advised  that no such  policy should be
adopted.
Toronto, Jan. 29.���Mr. Albert Chamberlain, president of the Liritish Welcome League, made the statement before the board of control tbat British
in.mig'umts among the unemployed in
the city were not being properly treated
or given a chance. Frequently, be said,
men got tickets to go to work and then
they were turned away by the foreman
because they bad no pick or shovel.
Mr. Chamberlain went so lar as to say
that if these men did not get better
treatment tbe board of control "would
have one or two thousand men around
ibe city hall and they could get them iu
quick order."
He slated tbat lust night ten men
came to him and said they got tickets
from the municipal labor bureau to go
to work. This put them iu high glee,
but when tUey went to the place appointed they were told they could not
bo taken on because they had no
picks or shovels, aud one man who hud
a pick was relused becauso the pick
was not sharp. They said they were
sent to one of the sewers now under
coustrucUou.
Mr. itusi. City Engineer, was sent for
by tbo board of control, and be staled
that no luou tit for the work on the sewers were turned away, aud Uiat provision was made aud would be made lo
provide picks and shovels for those
who bad none, lie would uot lake men
however, who were sent iudiscrlmin
ately from tbo municipal labor burcui,
mosl of whom "were not worth shucks
for that kind uf work. The sewer*.

be wus going to see that tbe work was
dene as a business enterprise, since tiie
ratepayers of tbe respective districts
had to pay fur them.        ���
"The board concurred with this view
of Uie city engineer.
Another charge was then forthcoming
aguiust the engineer's department. Mr.
Chamberlain said that Mr. Richard Patterson, foreman on one of the sewers,
had nine-tenths of bis list composed of
Itulians, and that tho liritish Immigrants were discriminated against.
Mr. Rust's reply to this was thut tlie
Italians were particularly aduptcd for
this work.- and tbe gang employed under Mr. Patterson had been with him
all   the   past summer.
"There's something radically wrong
with the labor bureau if men are sa-nt
to work where there is none for them,"
declared Controller Spence.
It was decided to get tbe names of

away and find who was responsible for

it rapidly gave way and was dispersed

says a number of persons received
mortal  wounds.
There has been no further outbreak
and the city is now quiet.

No  Part of Ross  Rifle Made In Canada

Ottawa, Jan. 29.���Inquiry into the
payme.it of the accounts of the Ross
Rifle company was resumed by the public accounts committee this morning.
Major Pyne, inspector of small arms,
who has been employed ln the Inspection of the Ross rifles manufactured for
the department, was called. He absolutely stated he had no feelings against
the Ross Rifle company, his endeavor
at all times being to treat tbe company
fairly. He had declined to sign certificates for advance payments to the company of 75 per cent on most of the rifles
because he could not tell accurately
what the labor and material employed
in the manufacture of the Ross rifle
had cost. He declared that no part of
the Ross rifle was made enUrely ln
Canada, but it was only fair to say that
even the British government had to import some material.

Berlin, Jan. 29.���England's threat to

to every new vessel contraoted for by
the German navy is not taken seriously
ln Berlin. The opinion prevails that a
damper will be put on the project ln
the British parliament. The publication of the plans of England has had
the effect of quieting opposition to the
navy budget of Germany, however.
Col. Gaedke, naval expert of the Berliner Tageblatt, is of the opinion that
all the appropriations asked for ln the
budget of 1908 will pass. These appropriations cover the first to the fourth
instalments on the following ships:
Nine battleships, of which two are ready
for service; four armored cruisers, ot
which one has already been launched,
while the others are practically completed; six small cruisers, twenty-four
torpedo boats of the same type as the
destroyers, another tender, and one
river gunboat.
Of these battleships seven will be of
the Dreadnaught type, and it Is rumored that three will be even larger. The
seven battleships building for Germany
have an average displacement of more
than 18.500 tons, and the armoured
cruisers under construction have displacements of from 5,000 to 19,000 tons
each.
During the next three years three
battleships and one armored cruiser
will be built each year. As the building
of these ships will occupy but three
years, two years less than the time required In France to build such vessels
and considerably less than the United
States and England take to complete
similar ships, Germany will at the end
of 1014 have sixteen battleships of the
Dreadnaught type and five armored
cruisers of the Invlelble type.
Further, the Berliner Tageblatt's expert shows that Germany In 1920 will
have n fleet of forty-seven battleships,
of which thirty-two will have more than
18,000 tons displacement, and twenty
modern armored cruisers. Germany
thus intends to stand second ln rank to
England as a naval power.

From Ocean to Ocean.
Ottawa, Jan. 29.���Copies of the com-
muicaUons which passed between Earl
Grey and the British government with
regard to Mr. Lemleux's mission to
Japan have been presented to parliament. On Oct. 13, the Governor-General cabled to Lord Elgin that Mr. Lemieux would sail fur Japan on the 20th
"to discuss the situation in Liritish Columbia wilh Sir Claude MacDonald and
the Japanese government, wilh the object of preventing the recurrence of
events whereby the" happy relations
which have existed under the treaty between his Majesty's subjects in Canada
and elsewhere, and those of the Emperor of Japan might be disturbed. Will
you forward me credentials to show
that the approval and support of the
Crown are given to Mr. Lemleux's mission?"
The Colonial Secretary replied four
days later, giving a draft of the message which it was proposed to send to
lhe British Ambassador at Tokio. It
was a paraphrase of Earl Grey's original message, and concluded, "Inform the
Japanese governmeut and present Mr.
Lemieux who will be accompanied by
Mr. Joseph Pope, under secretary ot
state to the proper authorities on arrival, and assist them ln every  way."
The Governor-General thereupon cables the colonial secretary that his
message  was  satisfactory.

THE   CONSTITUTIONAL   .QUESTION.
The opposition in the provincial legislature continues to talk helplessly
about tlie violation oi the constitution
involved in Li .-iiL-Uov. Dtmsniuir's reservation of the Bowser iii.i of 1907,
and Premier MoBrlde's lailure to resign
in protest.
It is impossible in believe at the same
time in the honesty and the sanity or
the   men   who assunie  such   a  position.
Constitutionally, as has hoon pointed  out   repeatedly  both   al   Ottawa   and
at    Victoria,    the    lieutenant-governor
was within the limits of his prerogative
In reserving the hill. As he is not appointed hy the government ut British
Columbia nor elected hy ihe people ol"
British Columbia, but is really ;i Dominion government official there would
be no sense and no point in the pruvi-
cial government, resigning in consequence of any act or omission ol' his.
Jl' we have heen told the truth from
Ottawa hy Senator Scott and Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and -Mr. Dunsmulr really
reserved tlie hill ol' his own motion in
his own interest, the attention of the
.Dominion government hus heen sulllc-
tontly directed to that fact. If the lieutenant-governor is nevertheless retained in olllce where he may annually repeat the performance, it can only be
interpreted as stamping his act with
the seal of Ottawa's approval.
Hut we have not been told the truth
from Ottawa. We concede the possibility that poor old Senator Scott did
not uppreciate the meaning of his tele-
grum to Mr. Dunsmuir, and really
thought that he waa telling the truth.
There is also the possibility that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier did not Know of tlie telegram and gave his solemn assurance
to the house with his usual cnreless-
liess as  to its accuracy.    But between
them. Senator Scott and Sir Wilfrid,
tiny have assured parliament that
there was no request to Mr. Dunsmuir
to reserve the hill. To call such an assurance a deli Iterate falsehood would
be (lattery. Such transparent, childish
inaccuracy is incompatible with the Intelligence  Implied   by  deliberation.
The whole story has been told In
print almost, ad nauseam, hut lest
there should he any occasional readers
who are not acquainted with Duncan
Ross, Hoi) McPherson, John Oliver and
.1. A. Macdonald, we give it once again:
Mr. McBride on his way to London
of course visited Ottawa and called
upon the secretary of state, Senator
Scott, to give him credentials to the colonial office in London. Quite unofficially, in fact, casually, the old senator
asked Mr. McBride what would be the
fate of Bowser's bill. .Mr. McBride,
also speaking unofficially, told him that
he understood the lieutenant-governor
would reserve it, as such bills had been
reserved  lor several years preceding.
Senator Scott, quite properly now, inquired Alficially of Mr. Dunsmuir by
telegram: "Can I rely on that assurance?" ,
yhe rest is given in an excerpt from
lln' report of the Senate proceedings,
continuing the words of Senator Scott's
statement in reply to a question of Senator Bostock:
"What Mr. Dunsmuir replied to me
was as follows:
'Your telegram received. Bill will
not  receive assent.'
"Later when the other hills were assented to he eenl to me the following
letter:
'Victoria,  B. C.,  April  29,  1907.
'Sir,���1 have the honor to inform you
that I prorogued the legislative assembly in the province on the 15th Inst., at
which time I assented to a number of
hills, duplicate copies of which 1 am forwarding today by registered mail. I
have thought it advisable to reserve for
the pleasure of His Excellency the governor general, bill 30, an act to regulate
th,- immigration into British Columbia.
My reasons for doing so are that this bill
appears to he hut a modified form of
other acts dealing with the same subject which already bave been disallowed, aud should It become law might
seriously interfere with our international law, and  federal Interests.
'(Signed)     .JAMES DUNSMOTR.'
If ihe Inquiry; "Can I rely on that assurance" does not imply a request for
the reservation, it expresses no meaning at ull.
Mr. Dunsmuir Is still in office. The
Ottawa government bas profited by his
act but allows its British Columbia followers to repudiate it, and actually supports them in a childishly impudent attempt to hold Premier McBride and his
colleagues responsible. The deliberate
dishonesty of such a course Is obvious.
The deliberate dishonesty is of course
lhat of the Dominion ministers. No
one would suspect poor Bob Mcl'herson
of  deliberation.
HISTORICAL   RELICS.
Rich   Collection   Broken   up   in   London
For  Sale  at  Auction.
London. .Ian. luJ.���An auction sale ol
the collection of antiquities ihat belonged lo the late T. tl. Middlebrook was
begun today in Debenham's auction
room. The presence of a large number of dealers and collectors gave evidence of tbe Intefrest taken Hu the
sale. The collection is regarded as one
of the finest of its kind that has ben
dispersed in a long time, it includes
Cromwell's helmet, the spear that killed Gen. Gordon, a number of Nelson
relics, Dr. Johnson's spectacles, aud the
bugle on which was sounded the order
of the famous charge of the light brigade at Balaclava.
To Americans, however, by far the
most interesting article iu the collection is the tlag of the American man-
of-war Chesapeake, which was captured by the British ship Shannon off the
coast of Massachusetts on June 13,
1813. The authenticity of this relic
has been established beyond question.
The tlag measures exactly four feet by
four feet six inches. Eight-tenths of
the surface is taken up by lhe fifteen
stars on a blue ground. In the upper
right hand corner is a distinct stain
of blood and just below there is a triangle formed by three bullet holes of
vaiying caliber. It is expected that
there will be spirited bidding for the
coveted trophy. If it does not fall into
the hands of some American millionaire collector the (lag will probably be
bid in by a representative of some American   patriotic or historical  society.

IRISH  LAND   PROBLEM
ST��T.�����., UM,,..,   Iiutnc
wTl^ftlollr|. that  AIIRIU  Mi;
Proposal   to   Divitle Grazing   Lands   Into
Farms  or  Market  Gardens���
Financial  Dangers.
London, .Ian. 29,���It seems to be the
Intention of the British government to
make another attempt to effect the ini*
jiohsIIiIi; und pacify Ireland; and it ls
announced ihat an effort will lie made
to split op the ura/.inK ranches and de-
vole the land to lilla^e. That ls to say,
a piece of land that now serves as pasturage for the cattle of one man will he-
oome the market garden* of dozens
That such a rough and ready solution
would relieve tlie congestion that Is
said lo conslttute the vital problem ln
the west of Ireland Is certain, but 11
might prove to cure one evil by creating
another. However, I-ord Dudley's commission has been investigating the mat-
tui for several months, und the government is not open to the criticism of
leaping in the dark, radical though its
purposes may seem from the cabled
synopsis divulged by  Mr.  llirrell.
A series of articles in the London
Times discusses the evidence taken by
the Dudley commission, and ln one of
them pays special attention to the grazing Industry in Ireland, arguing strongly
against any movement lo interfere with
It Directly or indirectly the whole
population of Ireland profits by grazing,
which was recently described by tlie
Chancellor of the exchequer as ''one of
Ireland's most prosperous and most
necessary industries." iu fact, the
ability of the Irish bunks, railways, and
steamship companies to earn dividenals
ia largely dependent upon the Irish
cattle Industry. About $ luu,000,uu0 is
invested in the production of cattle.
Sheep and horses in the Kmerald Isle.
Oenerall; Bpeaklng, these ranches are
in the west of Ireland, and they constitute the lands the Nationalist party
wants the government to divide up
Into small farms which the population
can till.
The Times' correspondent proceeds
.to discuss thu effect of such a violent
interference with one ot the gra iiia-si
of the country's interests, not only upon Hie Irish themselves, hut upon the
British taxpayers, lt reminds the gov-
11111111.nl that about $240,000,000 ot
money has been advanced from the Imperial colters to buy land for the downtrodden peasantry, and that it lis possible for the government to increase the
advances to the tremendous total of
$900,000,000 without further legislation.
The money that has been advanced and
that which may lie advanced ls a loan,
not a gift, and the only security the
lender has for it Is Irish land. Would
not this security be gravely impaired
by the proposed change ill the grazing
Industry? When tt was proposed to remove the embargo on gorelgn cattle,
the cry was raised that the competition
from Canada and elsewhere would most
Injuriously affect the value of the government's security; yet the government
lhal listened to that argument now contemplates with cheerfulness*, far greater
danger.

CANADA MOST FAVORED
Attracts  More  Emigrants  From  Britain
Than United States or Any
Other Country.
Montreal, Jan. 29.���A London special
cable says liritish official emigration returns show Canada's unquestioned supremacy among countries receiving liritish emigrants. In 1906 Canada received 5,1)00 more Britishers than the United States, and In 1907 she received
18)889 more. The rest of the British
empire nowhere has compared to Canada. Despite asissted passages Australasia received only 14,369 as against
Canada's 17,596. Of course a large
purl Ion of these are adults. It ls probably true to say that llritain presented
to Canada last year a population hardly
less than that of the province of Saskatchewan.
A remarkable feature is that this un-
piecedented Hritish exodus synchronizes with unprecedentedly large foreign trade. Some surprise has been expressed at the appearance in an Am*
steralam paper of an advertisement for 20,000 Hollanders for con-
strucilon work on the Grand Trunk I'a-^
clllc railway to extend over seven or
eight years, at 10.40 a week In eastern
Canada and $1SS.20 in western Canada.
The Grand Trunk management here
say the advertisement was inserted un
der instructions trom London steamship agents, absolutely without authority of the Grand Trunk Pacific management. Their action may lead to
other proceedings. The management
adds:
"No one was authorized to contract
for Grand Trunk or Grand Trunk Pacific labor  during  the  winter   months.*'
