work he would be unable to defend
the title which he wrested from Mllea

longing in regain the title, which Ie'
has held on so many occasions.
According to the rules governing tlie
tournament the holder of the championship shall UOl play, but shull defend
his title if Challenged by tile winner.
Court tennis men are Inclined to pick

rect the match between Gould and
Miles will be played on the second
day succeeding the final in the tournament unless otherwise ordered by the

Cabinet Changes.

Loudon, April ti.���The bulletin issued
this morning regarding lhe healtu of
Sii Henry Cumpoell-JJauuetmun sayB
that lhe patient had a good night and
thai  his  condition  remains  unchanged.
Au lutormai coulereuce of ministers
under the presidency of Herbert Ii. As-
quith, chancellor ol lhe exchequer, was
held prior to the commencement of today's silling uf parliament. The situation was discussed iu a general way,
the premier elect being anxious lo hear
tlie views of his colleagues concerning
eabinei changes, bince, iu view of ill
success at the recent elections, the cabinet is lo be rearranged so as to avoid
as far as possible the election coutesis
made uecessary when members of lhe
house of commons or holders of under
secretaryships are elevated to cabinet
rauk. Apart from forecasting the new
cabinet the discussion in the bouse of
commons lobby today 'urned chiefly on
the probable effect of Campbell-Banner-
inan's retirement on the ministerial
coalition, it ls undisputed that the ex-
premier's lact and popularity were the
moral bond holding together tbe influential but somewhat discordant elements which have been in power up to
this time. The Liberal leaders appear
to be quite well satistied with the situation but some of them question the
power of such an Imperialistic as Asqulth to keep the Laborites and Socialists from breaking away from all allegiance lo tlie government coalition.

���Riot   in   Lisbon.
Lisbon, April t*.���The counting of the
bdlioltt cast in tlie elections in Portugal is being held up iu some districts
and tbe boilot boxes are being guarded
by the police and tioous. iNui a single
Republican Has tiius lar been declared
t-iected, although tbe results of luV districts are understood to uave been con.-
pieteu. The city ui in a lever over lasL
ni.JiL:. rioting, which followed the protest of ihe nupubiicatiH that ihey were
being delruuded at the polls. No oth-
'.���'.11 statement as to tne uuuioer of persons killed or wounded as tne result ot
the noting, has yet been issued, penu-
mg whicn action no estimate can be
obtained. Later the olhces of tne newd-
paper organs of tne ir'raucoisis and N��r
iioualisUi parties were moued by a
Ciowd of rioters who rinaliy bed in terror to their homes, the cavalrymen dispersing every group which had assembled in   the  streets.
The city is in a state of intense excitement over the riots of last nlghi,
brought about hy the indignant protests
ol the Republican element that it was
being defrauded at the polls. Great
crowds filled Pedro Square and were
massed in front of Dominique church,
these points being the chief centres of
the Republican disorder. Cavalry and
infantry were called from their barracks, and charged the multitude. Aa
the troops advanced they were met hy
showers of stones. The soldiers charged
repeatedly, finally opening fire on the
mob.     Intense  disorder ensued-
One observer says the streets were
literally red with blood. No official
statement of the number of killed and
wounded has yet been issued, and pending authority from government sources
no official press statement is permitted
to be telegraphed. Following the bloody
street affray three newspapers, the organs of the Francolsts, the Regenerators, and the Nationalists, were mobbed.
The crowd finally fled in terror to tlueir
homes, the cavalry pursuing the groups
through the streets and dispersing them
as they sought to reform at the street
corners. The counting of ballots of
yesterday's election proceeds slowly.
Some districts are being held up by
order of the government. The ballot
boxes are being guarded by the police,
backed by a large force of troops. Thus
far not a single Republican candidate
has been elected, although the results
in 107 distrcts are understood to be
Paris, April ti.���The gravity of the
rioting at Lisbon last night is not yet
known in this city. Lu accordance with
an old time practice the censorship of
despatches was inaugurated as soon as
bloodshed occurred. It is evident, however, that the Republicans began the
demonstrations because of the methods
used to suppress their votes. The
troops, it is said, were forced to fire on
the rioters, but there is no indication
here of the number of persons killed or

The Toronto Globe declares tliat tlie
comoositiun of the Civil Service Commission, especially the chairmanship or
Mr. Courtney, is sufficient proof that
the government's intentions were Irani,
and honest. Tbey may hare been. Borne
time ago we conceded thai Sir Wilfrid
Lauiier probably knew very little of
the iueilii.ieiicy and deiiiuiaii/.atlon of
many of the departments, But the
Qlobe ha.-> no woid of defence,���and
therefore, oi coarse, mattes do reference
to it���ol Mr. Fielding r, rejection of the
first drait of the report and Insistence
on revision, not ol Mr. Brodeur's ihel-
tared atta'-k on the report before i' wm
in the hands ui members.
The Globe also ciuiins credit for the
party from the prompt aoqulscence ol
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. liiodeiir in
Mr. Borden's demand for a detailed Inquiry Into the conditions in the depart
ment of marine and iisheries exposed
by the report. We are disappointed
that what seems to us a natural corollary hus not occurred to the Qlobe,
namely, Unit the militia department, being in like evil case, should also he Investigated.
liut the most interesting aud important part of the Globe's comment is the
"It ls not necessary, however, to
await this jiarticular inquiry beforeooii'
sideling tho report that is already in
the hands of parliament. It Is not
necessary lo believe that tho finding of
lie  commissioners la inerrants In every
particular to agree with them lu the
general conclusion that under the present system the civil service is found
wautiug. The government cau have no
totereetj any more than the opposition,
in maintaining a civil service system
that yields poor results. Both sides
should join together iu remedying evi.s
and applying the experiences that public administration in other countries
supplies. The opposition will themselves
some day have to work the machine.
Tbey are Interested, therefore, in making it as perfect as It can be mail'.
The opposition leader has declared for
civil service reform. Mr. Blftoa, one of
the big minds oi parliament, has declared ior it. There has been a great
deal ol time wasted this session. Would
it not be possible to get the combined
wisdom of parliament centered ou this
reform, and make lhe session of 1UUS
uoteil for pulling once l"i at] ill. public
service on a wise anil useful fooling?"
Mr. Blfton, one of the big minds of
parliament, haa declared for it." Quite
true. Bui In thl n ,,. . i Br! .sition
stands absolutely alone In the Liberal
part) .. repreai oted In the common*.
.Mr. Foster offered a definite resolution
on the subject sir Wilfrid Laurler
praised Mr. Foster's puriK.se but could
not accept the resolution.   Th<  real at-
tltUde   of   the   party   was   shown   by   thu
applause thai arrested mi. Roche's declaration that the Liberals, having suf-
fi red It years in opposition, were entitled now to full enjoyment of the patronage,
I In- Globe's suggestion may be un-
Intentional but it is none the less direct. Mr. Sifton, "one of the big minds
of parliament," agrees entirely with
Mr.   Borden  on  this subject,  while  the

other Liberals, presumably smaller
minds. Including the premier, are opposed.
The long monotony of the somnolence
of the Dominion senate has been disturbed. A bill to grant a charter to a
jiower company in New Ontario was approved by the government and passed
by tin- commons. Premier Whitney
proti .-led Ihut the granting of such a
charter was a flagrant violation of provincial rights, and threatened to appeal
to Uie Imperial privy council. The
senate has agreed with Mr. Whitney
againsl the Dominion government, and
thrown out the bill. A few such acts of
intelligent aud honorable independence
would go far to rehabilitate the senate
in  the  public esteem.
Whatever imaginary justification there
may have beeu for our contemporary's
ni.ee at our reference to Mr. Koss, what
justiiicaiion or excuse can there be for
the following: "Electors of Yale-Cariboo 'should ask themselves where
either Martin Burrell or Price
Ellison would have lined up on
the vole for railway competition in Southern JJriUsh Columbia."
This is equivalent lo an assertion that
either Mr. Uurrell or -Mr. Ellison would
hate voted for corporation interest
even if they had recognized it as being
against public interest. The career of
Price Ellison in the provincial legislature, which even the local Liberal organ
has acknowledged repeatedly to be independent and public spirited, gives the
He to the insinuation as against him.
In the case of Mr. burrell it ls gratuitously insolent and only harmless because of Its imbecility. Martin Burrell's
record in BrIUsh Columbia makes hiB
name absolutely safe against any such
attempt  at  slander,  direct  or Indirect.
Moved by the indignation of our local
contemporary we tender our sincere
apologies to Mr. Duncan Ross, M. P..
for having even seemed to associate his
name with those of Messrs. Sifton, Hy-
man, Emmerson and  Sir Fred.  Borden.
If yon want upholstering or cabinet
work for this spring get it done now.
We have some choice quarter cut oak
and will build you a piece of furniture to
order at the price of factory goods. See

Death of S. Weir.
The Vancouver World of Friday contains the following account of the death
in that city of Samuel Weir, formerly
of Nelson: "About six o'clock this
morning Samuel Weir, shoemaker, was
drowned in False Creek. The watchman
at tbe Royal City mills heard him
struggling in the water and running to
his assi.stance, succeeded in bringing
him ashore. The police were summon- I
ed and Sergeant McLennan and two
men worked over the body for an hour,
but were unable to restore animation.
Deceased was a man of about ',,8 years
of age. Samuel Weir had been in the
city for about a year, coining here from
Detroit about a year ago. He was a
native of Hallymena. Ireland, where he
kept a shoe store in company with his
brother who works In the Stark shoe
store, Hastings street. The brother,
Mr. Joseph Weir, saw him last night,
about half past eight o'clock, when he'
was at work in Hanson's shoe store.
The brothers resided in Fairview until
recently, when Samuel moved to Hamil-
bo street. How he came to be in False
Creek at that hour of the morning is a

"Another disreputable farce was inflicted on tlie thea're going public of

consisted of several acts and scenes

How any travelling company can come
down to such a depraved and disgusting production is hard to imagine anil
the piece on Monday showed the vilest and worst side of human character that could possibly be seen. The

Cotton   Mill   Operatives   Suffer   Cut   of
Ten  per cen.
Boston, Mass., April 6.���A reduction
of ten per cent in wages went into effect this morning in practically all of
the cotton mills In the New England
territory. Lowell. New Bedford, Fall
Klver, Manchester and the Rhode Island mill towns are the places chiefly
affected. Approximately 30,000 opera-
atives  ln   Rhode  Island  are  affected.
The mills decided upon a reduction
only after they had tried all other
plans for the bettering of the general
conditions in trade, such as curtailing
the output, etc. What the duration of
the cut is to be Is, of course, only problematical, as no one can say when the
conditions will Improve enough to justify the operators in restoring wages to
Ihe old figure. At present there is no
demand for the product of the mills
and conditions have steadily grown
worse until the prices that were quoted by buyers were down to the cost
of manufacture.

We Have the
Best There Is in
Talking; Machines

PRICE  $50.00.
Other styles at J15 00, $25.00 and
