Springfield, 111., Feb. 21.���William J.
Ilryan visited Springfield today to confer with his supporters among the Democrats oi Illinois Though ostensibly
a rally .,r the iii.viin elnbi ol the state
and 1,,-id withoui any special political
slgnllicniia... il  i.s believed   presence
of so many Bryan followers will be
taken advantage of tor an Importanl
conference. Mr. Bryan is reported to
tie nol altogether satisfied with the
way ililitgH hav,. Iica>ti allowed to aliift
along In Illinois. The hostility of National Committeeman Raaga.r 0. Sullivan toward Ilryan ami Bryanlsm Is well
known, but recently other matters have
come up to mine the surface. The suggestion of Governor Johnson aaf Minnesota for the Democratic presidential
nomination   has  been  received in  1111-
nols with ,-t cordiality not to the liking
Of Ilia. Ilryan people. The Swedish ela*-
ment Is large and inllinmjlal iu this
state and though the majority of tin-
Swoalisli-American voters are Republicans It is believed thut Ihey would
rally strongly to the support of Gov*
ernor Johnson ir Ills nomination appeared to be a possibility, The oonneo
tlon between Mr. Bryan's present visit
to Illinois and the Johnson boom is
strengthened so far as snppoelrJtm goes
by the fact that the Nebraska*, leader
goes rrom Illinois to Kansas. Where
he is to oonfer with the Kansas Demo-
cratlc leaders tomorrow. Kansas, like
Illinois, is the home of large colonies
of Swedish-Americans.

Hays, vice-president und general
manager of the G. T. R., has gone to
England for the purpose of confi'rring
witii the directors of the lirand Trunk
aud Grand Trunk  Pacific.
Mr. Hays generally makes a trip to
London  In  the  spring, but   this  year he
has gone a little earlier than usual, it
is understood in olllcial circles that his
object tn doing so was to plaee before
Sir Charles Rogers-Wilsam and the
members of the 1-ondou board tlie position of the company and the plans lie
has In view for economizing expenditure lu view of the falling off In the receipts since  tiie beginning of the year.
Several Grand Trunk Pacilic matters
also render Mr. Hays' presence desir-
able iu London, one of them being the
forthcoming issue or $6,000,000 G. T.
P. lour per cent, debentures tor equip-
1,1*-nt purposes, which are guaranteed
by the parent company. Then there
Is the matter of Mr. Wainwrlglifs mission to Hritish Columbia and the settlement ot the issues raised in the
course ot the fourth vicc-p.-a-sident's negotiations with the I nil ish Columbia
ministers. Mr. Hays deferred his departure until Mr. Wainwrigiit's return
in order that he might hava- all the
racts regarding the position of the Government taken in regard to the Prince
Rupert terminals and plans for llle lav-
out   of   the   cily   before   hini.
Another matter in connection with
the (1. T. P. which has to be gone into with the directors is the construction of the first hundred miles of railway east of Prince Ruperi. The ten-
da-rs for this work were invited some
time since und were opened a few days
ago, but as the gving out of the contract was to be dependent upon Iho
Una] settlement or .'he dispute between
the British Columbia Government ami
the company, no contract has yet been
awarded, although it is understood thai
several tenders have been received
which an* satisfactory, lt is not considered likely that this contract, which
involves something like seven million
dollars, will he given out until Mr.
Hnys has discussed the matter with

lj\ii, wthur to the Japanese, ls re
ceived with little satisfaction in the
Russian capital, where it is felt that the
trial of Generals Stoessel, Reiss and
Smirnoff has done practically nothing
towards establishing the real responsibility for the fall of the fortress. The
court Indeed decided the extent of the
guilt of Stoessel and the others, but lt
mglected to judge the system of which
they were the product. They declined
to admit testimony regarding the preparedness of the fortress at the beginning of tlie war; the role ot the navy in
the defense of a marine stronghold, and
other facts In the humiliation of Russia.
The newspapers today sympathize with
General Stoessel and declare that the
death sentence undoubtedy will be commuted. They demand also that General
Kuropatkin, Viceroy Alexieff and other
oilicers still more Immediately responsible tor the loss or the war, be placed
on trial.

Foreigners   Fight   to   Get   Into   Gaol���
���Thousands  Are Idle.

Manipulator of "Thin Red Line," Leech,
Appointed to Distribute Seed
Grain in the Weet.
Ottawa, Feb. 21.���There is Indignation in parliamentary circles over the
fact that Mr. Leech, the government
official who operated the "Thin Red
Line" In Manitoba, has been appointed
to supervise the distribution of seed
grain ln the Northwest. This politician
was formerly Liberal organizer for
Manitoba. At the last election it was
found by persons who came to vote ln
many of the constituencies that their
names had been crossed off the lists
by a thin red line. It ts estimated that
fully 10,000 voters were disfranchised as
a consequence. When enquiry waa made
it waa learned that the voters' lists had
been sent from Ottawa to the returning
officers as usual, but that they were
passed for revision to the central offices of the Liberal party. At these
rooms they were carefully gone over,
and the names of persons hostile to the
government, to the number estimated,
were stricken off. The outrage, when
discovered, resulted ln several arrests.
Leech, who, as chief organizer, was
charged with the responsibility, was
promptly rewarded by the Ottawa government with the offlce of homestead
inspector ln the then territories.
The appointment of Leech Jo supervise the distribution of seed grain In
Saskatchewan, and to see to the repayment of the price Is regarded as an Impudent proceeding. Moreover, lt Is
viewed as giving strength to the suspicions which have been aroused concerning the management of this seed
grain grant. It Is now believed tbat
what was supposed to have been an act
of benovelence is to be used as a
scheme of tyrany. Under ordinary circumstances, when seed Is given, an
agreement Is made with each recipient
to make good the sum Involved within
a period extending over several years.
This time a different course is pursued. The farmer who receives the
assistance has first to give a chattel
mortgage upon his entire crop.
This Is held by the provincial governments. Then the farmer agrees that he
shall not receive bis patent for land
that he holds from the federal government until he has paid. In addition to
this, the money has to be repaid within
a year.
The result of the bargain into which
the farmers must enter before they can
get a grain of wheat to sow Is that
these persons who ought to be treated
with consideration are tied up from the
day they get help until they have paid
the money, and have thus bought their
freedom. They are nt the mercy of the
local government, which holds a chattel
mortgage upon everything they grow,
and they stand to suffer at the hands of
the Dominion government unless they
pay up or capitulate to whatever demands the government may mnke upon
It is quite Improbable that all who
receive seed grain will be able to pay
the amount of the advance at the end
of twelve nionths. As a matter of fact,
the demands upon the settlers for store
bills, for Implements and so on. may,
unless the crop Is exceedingly heavy,
be such as to render impossible the paying up of the value of the seed grain
from the proceeds of the first crop. Such
being the case the provincial and federal governments, under the agreement
they force the farmers to enter Into,
are in a position to say that they will
take their crops from them and withhold their patents unless they surrender
their rights as citizens and vote for the
policy of graft.
The farmer who refuses to vote for
the grafters can be pressed for the
money. On the other hand, the farmer who agrees to vote as ordered may
be accorded an extension. Thus a system of coercion ls possible. The Conservatives ln parliament saw through
the manoeuvre for the holding up of the
settlers before they knew that Leech,
of the "Thin Red Line." had been appointed to superintend the distribution
of the seed and the collection of the
money. It was for this reason that they
moved for the extension of tho loan for
three years. The motion helps to give
the farmers relief. They know now
that a change of administration will
mean complete emancipation from the
oppressive regulations, and, In addition,
freedom to exercise their franchises as
free men. **

the British Columbia theological college.

no report.
Rev. H. R. Grant said thnt, from perusal of copies of the documents he was
not satisfied with _ the proposals, especially as to the suggested opportunity to minister or congregation at the

tie. He feared the effect would be unsettling.
The moderator called attention to
many matters in the proposed terms

the form of the questions to be put at
ordination, and he thought the literary
form of the articles of doctrine un-
pardonably slipshod and obscure. He

The jtrovincial minister of education
Hun. Dr. Young, has announced in tbe
1�� i-'islature that during the present year
the government will provide the pupUfl
Of Lhe public schools of the province
free scribblers, copy books and sim*
ilar supplies. This was accompanied
by the far more important announcement that In the very near future the
government would undertake the supply of lust books as well. .Many municipal Rciiool boards throughout tlie Dominion including Nelson's are now supplying scribblers, note books, pens and
The announcement was provoked by
a motion from John Oliver that "iu
the opinion of thin house It Is advis
lible to provide text books for use ln
the public schools of Hritish Columbia at the cost of the province." The
motion was out of order of conn**- !(�����
solutions Involving expenditure of public money may emanate only from the
The question of free text books has
been discussed at every meeting of the
provincial school trustees' association,
an 1 has been the subject of negotiation between that body and the education  department.
The trades and labor council of Vancouver once published a circular demanding ihat the government print and
distribute text books. The demand was
made in all innocence. The government
could only produce text books by paying heavily for the infringement of
copyright or by ennugiug a corps of authors tu prepare new books. The expense in either case would have been
enormous, and, as gold does not fall
from the sky into the provincial treasury, the people would  ultimately  have
paid many times the amount now paid
In  retail  purchase.
Then; are sentimental objections to
the measure. The sense of ownership
in a book will be gone. The pupil will
have in most cases only one year's
use of any book. If, as is evidently intended, the system is extended to high
schools, the pupil's fondness for his
first Horace or his first Virgil will need
to be a very abstract affection, it will
have no tangible supj>ort in the possession of a dog-eared, Ink-stained, margin-scribbled treasure.
Hut in many other spheres, sentiment
Is sacrificed to economy; why not also
iiiKchool  books?
The great argument for the change is
that, a provincial department, buying
textrbooks by thousands, can procure
them at a cost far less than parents
buying individually from retail merchants, although the latter have always
declared, and no doubt quite correctly,
that there Is very little profit in school
books. ln the matter of scribblers,
pens, pencils, etc., it has been demonstrated in Toronto that a saving of
more than i*0 per cent, may be effected
hy wholesale instead of ratal! purchase.
The expression "Free Text Hooks,"
though familiar. Is misleading. Text
books are never free; rhey may be paid
for by the people individually or com-
munistically through the provincial government The choice of method must
he determined by the balance of economy and general advantage, which will
probably be found on tlie side of wholesale  purchase.
Finance Minister Tatlow's budget
speech will be received with general
gratification. Reduction of the public
debt out of surplus revenue must have
tho effect of Improving the credit of
the province, and the almost certain
prospect of continued surpluses amply
justifies the undertaking of new public
works for development which In turn
will cause further increase in the revenue. The era of continuous deficits,
with now loans to pay maturing debts,
which was the lot of British Columbia
for many years before the Advent of t_.fi
-McBride government, Ih a thing of the
past. Under Conservative administration the province has learned to expect surpluses, and will not be disappointed so long as the present ministers
are   In  power.
Ottawa, Feb. 21.���Clly Solicitor Mc-
Velt has sent a communication to the
city council stating that by reason of
the recent judgment of the Judicial
Commit tee of the Privy Council the in-
oqmefl of civil servants resident in Ottawa can now be taxed, and that he
hue advised the assistant commissioner to that effect. He declares
there Is no agreement between the city
and tho government which prevents
the assessment of the salaries of the
civil servants resident In this city.
No agreement which the city could
enter into could have the effect of exempting from taxation any class of
residents. If, therefore, there was any
agreement purporting to specifically exempt from taxation Dominion civil servants,  the  same  would  be  invalid.
The City Solicitor goes on to argue
that the consideration that the city received was largely illusory, as the government was only agreeing to maintain
what was its own property. The bylaw provided that the agreement was
only to continue if the government observed every condition, which has not
been the case. In that connection, he
cites the failure to maintain sidewalks
on Wellington Street, which have been
constructed as local improvements.
The conclusion, therefore, is that
there is no agreement preventing civil
service income assessment, and anything purporting  to  be is  invalid.

Freedom   of   City  of   London   Will   Be
Presented to Florence Nightingale
���Still Chief Adviser.
Londa-n, Feb. 21.���In November the
Oazelte announced tbat Mlaa Florence
Nightingale bad been appointed to tlie
Order of Merit. Now the freedom of
the City of London ls to be presented
to he*; and It is safe to say tbat no
woman has ever before won two such
great honors ln three months. It might
be said with equal truth tbat tbe great
service and the great reward have rarely been separated by such a gulf of
time. It Ib not lhat appreciation of
Miss Nightingale's work has been limited or long delayed. For half a century
her name has been a household word
wherever tbe English tongue ls spoken.
Ilefore men now ln middle age were
born a grateful nation had given Miss
Nightingale ��50,000. This gift MisB
Nightingale used to found a "home for
the training of nurses.
In short, Miss Nightingale has received nearly everything that lt ls ln
the power of a grateful country to bestow. When the Order of Merit was
established at the time originally fixed
for the coronation, only twelve members were appointed, and the fellowship
became at once the most coveted and
most exceptional of British orders. *But
distinguished though the twelve were,
at once a protest was raised because
the name of Miss Nightingale was omitted. It was understood, however, that
the original statutes limited membership to those who had won great distinction in the military and naval services, and those who were particularly
Illustrious as men of letters, arts or
science. In deference to public opinion,
the scope of the order has been broadened to include any person who renders
any high public service of a non-party
character. Thus Lord Cromer and Miss
Nightingale were taken In. All tbe
British orders heretofore have been for
men, with the single exception that the
Garter has been specially beBtowed upon Her Majesty the Queen. Florence
Nightingale was therefore singled out
from all the great and good women of
England for an honor enjoyed by no
other woman but her Queen.
No less distinction is attached to the
freedom of the City of London. That
it has ever been given to a woman before 1b doubtful. Slow, indeed, to offer
its heart and hMd U* the old grey city
on the Thames. Gre��t men come and
go, receiving honors at the hands ot
king and commoners, but, not to them
all, nor to one ln a score, does London
offer her golden key and casket. Therefore lt has come that no earthly honor
ls more highly honored by British subjects than to win the freedom of the
City of London. It is the last stronghold to be utormed by him who struggles for the plaudits of bis countrymen.
Of Miss Nlgbtlng��le, on the occasion
of her appointment to tie Order of
Merit, thai Times said:
"Of the paramount claims of Miss
Nightingale to any honors that the
Sovereign can bestow, there ls little
need to speak, short as is the public
memory ln these times. It may. Indeed, be a surprise to many to learn
that tbe heroine of the Crimean campaign���the heroine of the struggle
agatnBt death, disease and misery���is
still living among us;  but her name is

one of the very few tnat ls universally
known, universally honored. At eighty-
seven years of age, during almost fifty
of which she has been a suffering invalid, broken down by work and hardship in the Crimea, she still lives, and
what ls more, still works for the causes
to which her life has been given. It
may be a secret to the public, but it ls
well known to all who are in any sense
behind tbe scenes, that Miss Nightingale ln her retirement has been constantly consulted as If she were still
what she was in the Crimea, the 'Lady-
in-Chief of tbe nursing organization.
At tbe outbreak of every war, great or
small, Ministers and generals have asked her advice, and it has been given
freely to them. For to the end she has
preserved those qualities which gave
her such an incomparable influence in
the evil days of the Russian war; immense good sense and ungrudging self-
"Miss Nightingale's name is inseparably linked with passages of British
history tbat one cannot read without
mingled feelings of pride and shame.
Naturally, our thoughts dwell most upon the historic charge of the Light
Brigade, and we dismiss from our
minds the scandalous mismanagement
and graft that were rampant ln the
early part of the campaign. At the
invitation of Sidney Herbert, Miss
Nightingale and ber little band of
nurses came forward to minister to the
wants of the sick and wounded Boldlers.
ln the face of opposition on the spot
and apathy at home, Miss Nightingale,
on the plains of the Crimea, drew order
out of chaos. She plucked back from
the brink of the grave hundreds of neglected soldiers, risking her life with
never a thought but that she could alleviate suffering. The light that sho
lit there at Inki-rtuan now shines ln tho
powerful Red Cross organization, and
will shed its mellow glow upon the
world's battlefields while wars endure."
