to cross lhe cruiser's bows she was
caught auiidship and cut iu half with
kniie-like precision. sinking almost
immediately. The deck crew, who were
diessed in haavrv oil skins und boots

Fifty Cbnts a  month
Civil Service at Lowest
Point of Efficiency
Corrupt Influence of Politicians In
Every Department��� Praise For
Post Office Branch.
Ottawa, April 3.���The government
haa suffered from many reverses, criticisms, exposures and disappointments
of late, and particularly during the
present session. The last and hardest
blow has come from a royal commission, of its own appointment, composed
of its own party friends. No government in Canada, federal or provincial,
baa had its administrative methods and
practical so relentlessly exposed and
so emphatically condemned as those or
the Laurier government have been by
the royal commission appointed to report upon the coalition and needs of
the civil service. The commission was
created iu consequence of the complaint
of civil servants that their salaries were
insufilcient in view uf the increased
et st of living. It was also suggested
that the classification might be changed, and the commissioners were instructed to report on the condition of
the departmental organization. They
did their work letter than the ministers  Intended.
The commissioners were: J. M.Courtney, for many years deputy minister
of finance; Thos. Kyshe, former manager of the Merchants' i.ank ot Canada,
and J. J. liazin. retired merchant of
Quebec, If Mr. Courtney has any j>oli-
tfoa he Is a Liberal, and in his last ten
years of service he was Mr. Fielding's
right hand man. Mr. Kyshe is a lifelong Liberal, and his statement that
the greatly increased cost of living is
"the nbvious and logical result of our
wasting, impoverishing, and demoralizing system of protection" shows that
he has not forgotten the Cartwright
formula. Mr. ttnziu is a fervent member
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's party. These
three would not, without the strongest
reasons, condemn, the administration of
public affairs by the Laurier govern,
ment. Yet what do they say? Here
are some of the findings, largely given
in their own words:
"Patronage seems to run through
every department of the public service.
This patronage evil ts the curse of the
civil service."
"Able and worthy young men have
left the service."
"The postmaster at Kingston was appointed on the recommendation of a
patronage committee. The last appointment to the port mastership of Mont-
n al was given to an aged member of
parliament, 67  years old."
Promotion! have bea& made a mat-
tor of politics, people being brought in
lrom the outside and appointed over
th" heads of men who have given their
lif tinu' to the department.
The sn\ ie.- has fallen back during
Hi. List fifteen jreara, and the political
��� Lement has "steadily tended to deteriorate Ihe Bervice."
Promotions are made by political inlluence, the officers promoted doing the
same work as In the lower grade.
The newcomers In the service are, in
general, not as reliable as those of previous   years.
"The old-fashioned notion of frugality
and living within one's means has, to
some extent, been departed from, and
instances have been found of department! giving orders for stores and
oilier services to be delivered within a
year In excess of the vote granted by
parliament. Large amounts have been
spent for supplies bought at retail rates
lrom those enjoying patronage. Heavy
expenditures have been incurred without, necessary consideration or supervision."
"Large amounts of money are paid
over each year to merchants whose
nnmes are on Ihe patronage list. While
the practice was always bad, yet,
through the great development of the
Countryi the extent was not so great
as to become serious until of recent
"The public expenditure has increased
in the last Iwelve years over 150 per
cuut.   or   more.     The   lime   has   come
when the practice of paying retail
prices to a few favored merchants In
each   locality   should   be   discontinued."
The auditor general stated that "In
one department he did not believe in
the  certificates   received."
The auditor informed the commission
that "he really audited and took stock
of only two public departments."
In many cases stores were ordered
unnecessarily and there is a doubt
whether a good quality was always delivered.
Stores had been received which were
not wanted and which it was difficult
to get rid of."
In connection with the purchase of
supplies, the commissioners recommend
that "inquiry be made as to the working of the Prevention of Corruption
Act of the Imperial parliament passed
in 1900 and the bribery clause in connection therewith."
As a rule, the commissioners found
in the outside service that politics
enter into every appointment, and that
politicians on the spot interest themselves, not only in the appointment, but
In CUhsequent promotions of officers.
"In the outside service the politics of
the party is of greater importance in
making appointments and promotions
than the public interest of the Dominion. Promotion in that part of the service has become almost a nullity." In
the outside service those who have the
political pull use It for all it is worth.
They pass by their superior officers and
bring pressure to procure anything that
may  prove to their advantage.
These observations refer to the administration generally, but some compliment is paid to the post office de-
partment. Two of the commissioners,
Messrs. Fyshe and liazin. made a particular investigation of the department
of marine, over which Mr. Brodeur presides, a department in which the public
accounts committee has been making
some investigation, in the face of great
obstruction. The commissioners use
plain language of general condemnation. After some genera] statements
as to the difficulty of fixing responsibility In the department, the commissioners say:
"Work proceeds in a lumbering, haphazard way. giving rise to constant
blundering and confusion. There is no
sign visible of a single directing head,
or an intelligent purpose, unless It be
that of spending as much money as
possible. Zeal for economy and good
management, or pride in the work, is
not visible. Perfunctory and mechanical discharge of duties is the rule, with
apparently no perception of any need
for improvement.
"The lack of organization and of organizing power In the department has
recently been very conspicuously and
plainly illustrated by the fact that the
accountant's or book-keeping branch
has apparently fallen into such confusion that expert accountants had to
be called to put things to rights, and
create some Intelligible system. After
months nf work by these highly paid experts, the result has been at least greatly improved books, so far as mechanical
form is concerned, but probably little
else; and this achievement has been
accomplished at au almost fabulous expense.
"Them Is not only a lack of efficient
Organisation and method in the department. There would also seem to be a
lack of conscience. In connection with
the enormous expenditures which are
deemed necessary, the word 'discount'
never appears. It is tacitly assumed
that there is no such thing; hut the
whole commercial world knows otherwise. If no one gets any benefit from
trade with the government except the
trader, then it must be clear that in
these great purchases made for the
government, without discount, its officers must be assisting the trader to get
better prices from the government than
he can get anywhere else; for everything else he has to give discount. In
other words, some of the government's
officers are serving two masters, and
apparently succeeding with both���Scripture notwithstanding.
"It seems amazing that this question
haa never been courageously faced and
dealt with. There is evidently a power
in the hands of responsible officers of
some of the departments which they
can exercise without the necessity of
giving any account of it, and with the
most demoralizing consequences all
round. It Is certain that under such a
state of things it must be Impossible
to develop high character in the service,
or rather to prevent the deterioration
of  what   character there Is."
After criticizing the lighthouse hoard
as an irresponsible body, which has
voted $1,691,813 In two years, the commissioners say that their general conclusions as to the administration of the
marine department "are most unfavorable. It seems lo have few redeeming
features, and no radical Improvement
need ever be expected until the political
pull Is eliminated."

Friday, April 3, 1908.
Reports from every part of the riding ol Yale-Caiiboo indicate a unanimous desire uu tlie part of the Conservatives lhat Martin Burrell shou.d
again be the candidate lor the Domln*
iou  parliament.
It is earnestly to be hoped that Mr.
burrell will see his way to acceding
to so general aud earnest a wish.
Every one knows that the result In
Jl'lM was dm.- solely lo the fact Una
like Kooleuay, Yule-Cariboo was disfranchised, lu to far as the franchise
involves a voice in the determination
of tlie general result, by having their
ell Liions deferred fur a month, made
bye-elections. There was admittedly
no ullier purpose but to give JJuucan
Kuss a chance fur his life in Yale-Cariboo. -Mr. Gallilier might have curried
Kooleuay at that lime ln a fair light,
but Duncan Kuss would have lust his
Of course there ls the possibility thai
the eleotion In Vale-Cariboo will again
be deferred, but If so tlie advantage
and the prestige of a general victory
are mure likely to lie with the Conservatives  than  against them.
To doubt that the elections of Yale-
Cariboo would prefer Martin Burrell
to Duncun Ross would he to Insuit their
intelligence. Mr. Ilurrcll ls a man of
unquestioned Integrity and scrupulous
honor:  Duncan Ross is Duncan Ross.
Iu .Mr. Barrel! the people of Yale-
Cariboo  will  have  a  representative of
whom any constituency in Canada
might well he pruud. Whether he sit
on the guverument side or in opposition he will respect for the electors
that chose him.
There are too few men of Mr. Bur-
rell's sianip iu ihe Canadian parliament.
and it ls must unfurtunate that it is su.
The cireuur.slunce is due to two main
causes. Such men's time is valuable
and, as a rule, they cauuot afford to
sacrifice it, and they seldom have any
desire or Inclination to resort to the
low Wire-pulling lhat seems necessary
to Canadian politics.
It is well knuwu that Mr. Burrul is
reluctant to undertake a campaign, but
that he will finally succeed to the wish
not only of all his constituents but uf
every Conservative in British Columbia, we (annul doubt.
Of ills qualifications for parliament
it Is unnecessary to speak to any who
know him. lie is acknowledged to be
the best representative of the agricultural Interests ol British Columbia, and

made him familiar with the requirements of every industry and every district. As a graceful, forceful and convincing speaker he has few, if any
equals in the province. In comparison
with Duncan Koss he is "Hyperion to
a satyr."
Two incidents of the last few years
will show the opinion that is held
throughout the country of Mr. Hurrell's
ability and of his public spirit. When
tlie Dominion tariff commission came
to Kouteiiay the fruit growers, then ou-
1.. loosely organized, wished to ask for
oeitain changes. Time for preparation
was very short. A man was wauted,
thorough.} conversant with the subject
and capable of presenting concisely
and clearly to the commission. There
wafl not a moment's hesitation as to
ill.' cho.ee. Only one name was thought
of, and a telegraphed request brought
Mr. liuriell from Graud Forks to Nel-
M��n, where his presentation of the case
earned tlie highest praise of the com-
liiisaiouei s.
A year later there was a Dominion
fruit growers' convention called at Ottawa, to be held under the auspices of
the Dominion department of agriculture. In the allotment of representa-'
Uvea only one was assigned for Kootenay and Okanagan, and there was
then the keenest rivalry between them.
A unanimous choice looked impossible,
but the difficulty was solved by a message from Okanagan that Martin Burrell   would  be  acceptable.
There is nothing that the keenest opponent could urge against Mr. Burrell
personally. There can be no doubt of
the success of his campaign. Undoubtedly he is asked to make a sacrifice of
his own Interests for the public good,
as he has often been asked before, and
as men of his character and ability
must   always   be   asked.     There   is   no

Stay Away from  Prince  Rupert.
Thy above indicates the interest that
is taken in Prince Rupert at oue place
only. The same interest is manifested,
to a greater or less extent, at other places. The editor ol tbe Empire bas been
a resident of Prince Rupert siuce July
1st, 1907, and there are fewer chances
for securing employment today than at
any time siuce the day he landed. Once
construction work begius on the G. T.
P. railway there will be work lor laborers and for rockmeu; but there can
be no demand for carpenters or other
skilled mechanics until buiidiug operations are commenced, and they cannot
be commenced until lots are sold, and
lots will not be sold earlier than August or September. There can be uo
employment tor clerks aud bookkeepers
until there are business houses. Slay
away from Prince Rupert, unless you
want to see the situation for yourself"
or unless you have been specially employed. The Empire is on the ground
and its owners want to see Prince Rupert grow; but it will grow all the more
solid if the growth is suarted at the
right time. The right time will be
when people can build houses on their
own  lots.���Prince Rupert Empire.

Rome, April 3.���The approach of Holy
Week finds Rome rapidly filling with
pilgrims representing the Roman Catholic church throughout the world. Owing to the celebration of the papal sacerdotal jubilee this year the number of
pilgrims is expected to be the largest
in   many   years.
A big pilgrimage te organizing to
come from Prance, and to its members
the Pope will deliver an address concerning the conditions of the Church
in France. Another pilgrimage, large
in size, is now on its way from -the United States, and to it the Vatican authorities will pay special attention. Still
other pilgrimages are expected from
Germany, England, Austria, Hungary
aud   other   countries   of   Europe.
On account of these pilgrimages Holy
Week will assume unusual splendor in
the Eternal City, because the Pope will
himself officiate In the Sistine Chapel,
and  Cardinal Rampolla in the Vatican

London, April 3.���Tomorrow, for the
sixty fifth time, the crews of Oxford
and Cambridge universities will engage
in a contest for supremacy over the famous Thames course, from Putney to
Mortlake. The puVic is manifesting
the same lively interest in the event
as in previous years. Today the banks
of the Thames were lined with people
to witness the final practice work of
the two crews and to draw a line on
their condition. Cambridge is a slight
favorite in the betting, though Oxford
has many followers willing to back their
judgment with money. The race is fixed to start at 3:30 p. m. The distance
is about four miles, and the best time
is 18.47, made by Oxford in 1893, and
equalled by Cambridge in 1900.
