' Sympathy with Discontent and
expense of the princes for the defence
of the Empire. On more than one occasion Bince, these troops proved their
prowess, Bhouldor to shoulder with His
Majesty's white soldiers.
In the paBt few years, large additional
contributions to Imperial defence have
been made by the Indian princes. What
self-interest prompted these gifts? Did
the princes expect large grants of territory, knowing that the Indian government has land to give? Did thoBe native
rulers who. from one cause or another,
were unable to Join ln the contributions
suffer at the hands of a grasping and
lorcigu government? Ten yeum ago,
wheu there was trouble on the Indian
frontier, and the Tlrah campaign was
fought, the Maharajah of 1'atiala. the
Maharajah Rona, of Dholpur. risked
their lives on the field. In addition,
the trrjops of the Uwallor, Jahpur, Jaipur. I'atlala, Nabha, Kapurthala, Nahun
and others states had their fair share
of the fighting. In 1900 the Maharajah
Sclndla, of Gwallor, sent out a magnificent hospital ship to China, at a cost of
about $700,000, and In the Chinese campaign many other native chiefs gave
signal proofs of their devotion to the
llrltlBh crown.
The grief of the Indian empire at the
death of Queen Victoria, tbe enthusiasm with which an all-Indian memorial
was raised to her memory, the anxiety
ever King Edwards illneBs bo soon after
his accession to the throne, and the Joy
with which tidings of his recovery were
hailed in India, are all facts tbat Indicate a very strong feeling of loyalty to
the Royal person and House. Indeed.
It is the fashion of the native to devote
himself to theae rather than to less
personal forms, such as as the government, the empire, the constitution, etc.
But the most striking argument ln favor
of the Maharajah's contention is the attitude of the princes and rajahs, aa a
class, at tbe time of the great Mutiny.
With a few exceptions the royal families of India remained staunch supporters of the British government, an
example of gallant loyalty that should
never be forgotten.
That there ia room for Improvement
and reform in some of the relations
of the British government with the
Indian empire is admitted by the
Maharajah, but he ls confident that Mr.
Morley and Lord Mlnto are trying to
lessen friction and Improve In may ways
the existing machinery. But the existence of cause for minor grievances Is,
in the opinion of the Maharajah, no
reason for supposing the Indian population and particularly the native princes
to be disloyal, and to be planning a
regime ln which the English shall have
no part. He Bays: "There can never
be any workable independent federation of native States, satisfactory to all
concerned. If ever a federation came
Into being, lt could only work under
the helping hand of the BritlBh government." As far as the Indian chiefs
and princes are concerned, they are to
be reckoned aa the firmest champions
of British supremacy in the Indian Empire.

British Parliament Has
No Rest for Ministers���Work Begins
at Once for Next Session���
Will Fight the Lords.
London, Aug. 28.���With picturesque
old time ceremonial the British parliament was prorogued today, thus ending
one of the longest and most arduous
sessions, during which the royal assent
was given to over sixty hills which the
two houses passed. The members of
the house of commons assembled at
noon and shortly after they were summoned to the House of Lords where the
king's speech was read. The statements
made were of the usual character, referring to the recent royal visit and the
friendly relations existing between
Great Britain and the other powers, the
conclusion of the agreement with Spain
and the conference at The Hague, concluding with a review of the most important bills passed during the session.
While the prorogation enables the private members of parliament to proceed
to the enjoyment of their holidays, the
ministers have prepared a long programme for themselves. The president
of the board of trade, Mr. Lloyd George,
and the president of the local government board, Mr. Burns, are going to
Germany where they will study trade
developments and social reforms with
a view to the Introduction in Great
Britain of some of the German methods.

Sweeping reforms will be introduced,
chief of which will be the licensing and
education bills and the proposed housing reform and regeneration of the port
of London. These measures are ready
to be introduced into parliament when
it reassembles early In the next year.
As soon as one bill is passed another
will be presented, thus avoiding the
criticisms levelled at the chief measures
of the past session that the legislation
was hastily prepared and that the Lords
were not given time to fully consider
the hills brought before the upper house.

Within the past few days some very
large orders have been wired out, but
if the river continues to fall at the
rate it is going down now there may be
difficulty in getting in everything that
is expected. A '97 famine in 1907 would
be an oddity, but it is not impossible,
thou-h highly improbable.
Never in the ten year's history of the
navigation of the upper Yukon has the
water been at as low a stage as it is
at the present time, considering the
time of the year, and that is yet over
two months before the close of the river.
And what is worse the river is still falling at the rate of an inch and a half a
day, and the skippers of the White Pass
fleet are wondering what is going to
come next.
They cannot account for the low
water except that there has been litle
or no rain during the summer, and the
side streams are consequently dwindling down to mere rivulets. The landing barges at the city docks are bent
farther out in the water than they generally are at the last of September.
All the steamers are now coining
down the river with but half a cargo
and yet every one of them drags the
bottom at Kirkman, Hellgate and Five
Fingers. The Selkirk, on her last trip,
had but 180 tons, and she should have
carried 280. The barges are also carrying less than they would if the water
were deeper.

ll is strange lo have lo record thai
even the spoilt* system bas found some
defenders. To an objection raised to
Mr. Borden's appeal for reform, the Toronto News says:
Wednesday,  August  28,  1907.
Next lo bis declaration for clean and
unbotisht flections tbe most striking
tiling in Mr. Borden's programme is the
advocacy of taking tb.* civil service
out of politics. Like purity in I It
tions lt is an old cry; it wan a plank
In the Liberal platform of 1890, bul
but like several more it was there lor
ornament only and meant nothing. The
Canadian civil service was aevei be
fore so utterly partisan ai it is today.
A remarkable addition to the old pat-
ronage list, made by Sir Wilfrid Laurler, is the judiciary. The braofai i ol
the supreme courts of the Dominion
and of all the provinces are now occupied by Liberal lawyers, many of whom
have no qualification lor the bench but
party  service.     In   Hritlsh   Columbia   it
isn't  Decenary to  point  to examples
They   occur  Instantly   to everyone.
The civil service will never be efficient until It affords some prosped ol
permanent tenure independent of the
fortunes of elections and a rational
system of promotion, on lh.-? bitis ol
seniority when there is also fi' UHfl tor
higher office. Hundreds of bard worki ig
and capable subordinates in the a* ii
service today know perfectly well that
no record of performance of duty can
win them any further advance. Tht
positions above them are considered
"plums" to be held as rewards for a service of a different kind.
That system Is pernicious to all concerned. It destroys the hope, and with
the hope the zeal, of the civil servant,
lt places on the shoulders of members
of parliament burdens and responsibilities, that cannot assist them in their
legislative duties, and the squabbles
and Intrigues of patronage committees
are often enough lo disgust one with
the whole business of politics.
If Mr.  Borden  can  devise  any  way
'���Lvils might come in the train of
Civil Service Reform. This is the fear
of an over-cautious contemporary. it
admits the disadvantages in a service
filled from the ranks oi tbe political
workers, bul hesitates to gel rid of
them tor f*.ar of more serious troubles.
Like Hamlei it prefers to "bear the ills
we bave than fly to others we know noi
ut." ii seems thai a writer In the Na-
lion bus u< ���ru.T d the chiefs ot the I'm
ti-ii civil departments with coldness towards the Campbeil-Baunennan Admin-
i traUon it ih said they bave been u<
customed for so long to work with
Tory minlstei i thai the Liberals And
them immovable and Ineffective in
working oui the details of proposed re
forms, Tins fills our contemporary
with alarm lest an Ottawa deput) might
i>e immovable and tneffectivi Ln earn
Ing "in a Liberal Minister's policy.
Tn- ministers might be manach d by
cold and mathematical processei ol
promotion by seniority in th** Civil Ber*
vice. This argument is extraordinary,
h is putting a light in a pumpkin in order to frighten oneself with it. Take the
ca ol Lord Randolph Churchill. When
he became Ohanoellor of the Exchequer
there waa no love lost between him ami
the treasury officials.    On several OCCaS-
alone previously he had attacked them.
tie bad said ai a semi-public gathering
thai the treasury officials were "a knot
Of damned Gladstonlans." He was
known to be a radical, and it was feared that, as chancellor he would violate
all the traditions of the office. Yet within a month, says the biographer, every
official was working enthusiastically in
ills service Lord Welby. writing of
him In ls-itc, said: "Lord Randolph was
a minister of the type tbat civil servants appreciate, lit- hut I a mind, and
made it up; a policy and enforced it.
he ruled as well as reigned." Jt is not
certain yet tliat ihe "immovable and
Ineffective" civil servants concerning
whom the Nation complains haVS bad
"movable" and effective ministers to
Work under.    Nor Is lt quite just, for our
doubting contemporary to condemn ho
calmly the whole system of a rational
civil service, free from the bedevlltnenta
of patronage on the flimsy evidence of
an (English partisan paper searching for
an excuse for certain failures of tbe new
(;overnjnent. Any minister who knows
what he wants ami possesses any fact
���and none can attain to high political
preferment without some tact���win find
cordial support and assistance from bis
subordinates. He gets it now under the
existing forms of civil service appoint*
ment.    There are Conservative official j
Stephen Bousel, a Chicago writer,
thus describes the closing hour of a
visit to Tolstoi at his Russian home:
We were standing under the beggar's
tree, from which now all beggars, rejoicing In the good count's largesse,
had departed���some to the mountains
and shrines that line the great highway
of Kief, the sacred city, some, as 1 saw
later, to the nearest government dramshops. Out of the valley by the willow fringed lake, from the little village
of mufl and ihatch in which Tolstoi
tmnants have lived for generations,
the came a flock of peasant children
all clothed in their best���scarlet tunics
and   high   boots  reeking  with   tallow.
"It is my Bible class." said the count
in answer to my look of inquiry.
"With them I close the day; with them
1 spend lhe happiest moments, nor is
it, I think an idle pleasure. Each one
of these children is collaborating with
me upDn a book which will be, I doubt
not, my last attempt to combat the
ht-resies of the day. When evening
conies they hurry up here from the
village and I read them the scripture
K-sson of the day, of which at flrst. it
being In the almost unused language
of our Slavic gospels, they understood
but little. 1 explain it as well as I
can, and answer all their questions.
Then on the following day I take pencil and pad in band and one after another I ask the children to recite to
me the lesson of the day before, while
I write down what they say as they read
it. As the result, I am indeed amazed
It s ems to me that for the first time
I am hearing the word of God unde-
filed, as it falls from the lips of an innocent child.
"God give me strength to finish the
task. May I under His guidance, live
to complete it. It will be my test!mon>
io the light which has been given to me
to see."
While the good count talked a sudden
shyness came over his scholars, who
had advanced toward the beggar's
tree wiih such frank joyousness before
they caught slghi of the embarrassed
stranger who stood there out of his element talking to their kind shepherd.
They kept their distance now, standing
stock still and staring with open eyed
amazement at the stranger who dared
to enter their fold. I rose to go, and
the count accompanied me a few steps
to where my troika was waiting. The
little children now rushed forward and
Clustered around the great tree, each
In its accustomed station.
"Except ye become as little children
ye shall in no wise enter the kingdom of
heaven," said the count, and with a
warm pressure of the hand we parted.
The black horses darted forward, and
soon they were rushing through th
streams out on the great highway which
leads from the home of the sage, "the
pleasant clearing in the woods," back
to Lula and  the  living  world.
lt is interesting to hear from a St.
Pet ei shu rg despatch to Loudon, that
the title of the children's book referred
tt. by Count Tolstoi, Ih entitled The
it. ading Circle."
In an interview with a newspaper cor-
respondenl the count said; "I am teach
ing the children, and ai the satin- time
learning myseU* to write truthfully and
simply." Be said be had oompleted several worki which be did not wish published until after his death, the mar ap
proacb Of whieh he Observed, must
make ft impossible for him to bring all
tiis many plans to fruition.

(Now York Journal I
Tlm Standard OU Trust was fined
twenty-nini' millions It bMn't paid
tin* fine, and ns we before remarked
It won"!  pay it.
If you ask why It won't pay It the answer Is simple. The Standard Oil is
going to take this tine and drag it
thouch all the courts in sight, slowly
and deliberately< Someewhere on the
road a weak spot will be found. That
fine won't be paid, at least, unless the
pi ople shall keep their minds on the
inattpr. and that la the most unlikely
of all things.
The twenty-nine million dollar fine
has fired the imagination of all America. We have the biggest rivers, the
biggest waterfall, the biggest fortunes,
the biggest farce In the way of govern
ment by the people, for it Is really gov-
61 nment by trusts, and now we have the
But is that fine of twenty-nine million
dollars Inflicted on th Standard OU so
very  great ?
Vou know what the fine amounts to���
loss, than thfee P*ir cent of Mr. Rockefeller's own Individual fortune.
It amounts to less than one-twentieth
pari of the net cash that the Standard
OU has taken out of the nople in the
last few years.

big fine, a fine that was of ridiculous
size, and out all proportion, just read
about Mr. F. W. Bates, of Quincy, Illinois.
Mr. Hates had various things. He had
an appetite, but that would not have
made  him  commit  a  crime.
He liked money like any Standard
Oil magnate, but that would not have
driven him to crime. He had a sick
young wife, but that made a criminal of
HUnd of all the leHBons of trust
mnnagmeut, Mr. Hates stole twenty
centu' worth of milk and took it home
to his wife, who drank It
They  caught  him and  arreested  him.
And they lined him J12.90.
Now that is what you can really call
a big fine.
When you take a man who has a sick
wife, and leas than nothing in the way
of property* and when you fine him
twelve hundred and ninety cents, you
are really showing what majestic law
can do when It gets excited.
The Standard Oil was fined less than
five per cent, of itB recent profits.
Hates, of Quincy, Illinois, was fined
twelve hundred and ninety times as
much money as he had���and more too,
ior he didn't even have a cent.
Whether Hates will pay his fine or
hot we do not know, but we dare say
he will pay It before the Standard Oil
pays Its fine.
When the judge who fined him ten
dollars and the costs amounting to two
dollars and ninety cents heard Hates'
story, he was inclined to be lenient.
It semed that Hates aud his sick wife
were expecting an important family ar-
��� rival, and the doctor said that the
anaemic wife  must have  fresh milk.
Hates built a comical sort of bicycle
out or old odds and ends that the boys
had given him. He tried to sell it. Hut
he couldn't get anything for lt. lt was
good, however, to ride on for a little
while. He rode out to the prosperous
quarter, and saw twenty cents' worth of
milk standing in an areaway.
The judge gave him until September to raise the fine, which was very
kind; he might have sent him to jail.
This will seem comical some day,
when really intelligent men of the future read our history.
We fine one man less than three per
cent, of what he has, and we all understand that he won't pay it���although tlie
crimes of his corporation have been serious, n drain upon every pocket in the
And every day we take thousands of
men and fine them more than the total amount of their possessions, and
lock them up promptly if they don't pay.
All this must mean complicated book-
kepfng for the Angel  Gabriel.

Cobalt, Aug. 28.���More than six weeks
have elapsi'd since the Cobalt miners'
