Ottawa, Dec. 14.���There may nol be
inuih further excitement in the house
of commons until after the holiday recess, hut the issues raised by the Con-
servatlves in lhe course of the drDa--.
ou the address are numerous and all
definite. The record of every department Tor the past year provides material
ror discussion. The postal department,
it Is true, has not been accused of any
wrong doing but it is pointed out that
there should be more rapid exlension or
postal facilities in rural districts, especially in Hie new Northwest
On Wednesday the discussion was
continued by Mr.Clements, or Kent,
who dealt severely with the department
of agriculture. Mr. Fisher has billet-
ted several regiments ot inspectors of
various kinds upon the country, and
provides them with business by nni*--v-
lng and hampering ihe farmers with
obnoxious, unnecessary ami stupid regulations. Hog raising is au Important
Interest in Western Ontario and Mr.
Fisher recently held a meeting In Chatham where indignant farmers met him
and gave him a disagreeable time. Mr.
Clenients gave a graphic account or
these proceedings and of the stupidities which led up lo them. The minister of agriculture followed Mr. Clements with laborious explanations, hut
apparently failed to make his case good,
for Mr. Clarke, of Essex, was obliged
to go over the ground again in defence
of his leader. It Anally appeared that
Mr. Fisher has boon driven to cancel bis
regulations and give the farmers some
relief. The country would be still better off IT he would cancel the appoint
ment ot two-thirds ot his inspectors.
No less than t',S new Inspectors have
heen created under one act passed last
Dr. Chtaholm, of Huron, clearly
showed that the French treaty will be
no advantage to the rainier. He has
gone carefully through the whole list of
farm products mentioned and lu the
schedule and tinds that the French duty
remains prohibitive against Canadian
producers. France is an aiBTlcnltttral
ci utitry and protects her own farmers.
Horses sent to France will pay $30
and oxen $:in to 84fl each, other ea'this cents a pound. Grain is not reduced.
Dr. llarr also discussed the treaty, showing that outside of the concessions
nn.ile by Canada on liquors, silks and
other luxuries It gnve Utile Ii..lie of increased trade. He also Strongly advocated extension of government ownership. Mr. Lewis, of Wesl Duron,
suggested many useful activities in
which the governmenl might bo employed, which were now neglected, and nsked lor better protection against railway
accidents, exclusion of undesirable Immigrants and legislation to preserve
our  rorest   wealth   for  Canadians.    A
well reasoned and serious address rrom
Mr. Bison of Middlesex supporting
among  other   things   Improved   postal
facilities In tb uinlry anil rural  mall
delivery closed the debate or Thursday
Mr. Armstrong or Lambton, who hnd
not finished bis speech when the house
adjourned for the week, hns made a
spi-clnl Study of postal questions. Investigating on lhe ground lhe operation of lhe free rural delivery system,
and   presented  a   strong   argument   for
this accommodation.
Mr.  Pugsley  who ssooke at n pu*_Hc
mooting In the city, on Thursday, added one contribution to his own re
cord.      He   suited   Hint   shortly   before
tho last elect ion announcement had
been made thai Mr. Blair was to take
the slump against Iho Laurier govern
ment and thai lie himself had then received a despatch asking him to join
Mr. Hhtlr In the campaign, Tho impression conveyed was that this Invitation
came from tho same source as Iho
Conservative election contribution, in
Thursday's debate Mr. Lalor of Haldl-
niand referred to this statement observing thai Mr. Pugnley hnd boon ��
Conservative while the Conservatives
wore In power, and deserted his leaders
the moment they wore defeated. 'I
was therefore natural that his Intimate
friend should call upon him tti assist
in the political assassination of sir \vn
rvbl Laurier whom he had boon supporting for eight yours. Tho person
sending the Invitation though! be know
his man and Hint It Mr I'lii'sley could
be persuaded that the Laurier government was about lo bo defeated bis assistance to Ihui end would be furnished.
Mr. l.alor did noi nay so but It would
was the same kind of a Conservative
as Mr. Pugsley, only a Utile more willing to take risks. The minister of public works preferred to wait till after the
election. If the programme ol his correspondent waa that Mr. Pugsley should
succeed Mr. Emmersori as minister of
railways in a Conservative government
���which scheme Mr. Borden should
have smashed���lt had been worked out
ln another way by Mr. Pugsley succeeding Mr FSmmerson In the Liberal government.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Informed the
house that Mr. Hyman gave up control
ot hi-* department. December 4th. 1906.
He had offered his resignation at the
time of the London exposures in November and ft had not ben accepted.
Hut he did no more work at Ottawa.
In May 1907 he wrote Sir Wilfrid that
that he could nol take up work again,
and on June 12lh Sir Wilfrid replied
Trom Milan In Italy accepting the resignation. In July Sir Wilfrid returned
and soon afterward handed the resignation to the C-overnor-CJonoral. The
n.w minister wa*. not appointed until
August 2!Hh. Mr. Hyman'.. salary was
paid down tilt that date, or nine months
aft.-r he gave up bis public duties. Mr.
Hyman is believed to he a rich nian
but th,- people of Canada, most ol whom
are nol rich, paid him $5,250 in these
nine months.
But the man w-lu. tared best during
tho last year In the matter nt public
earnings is Mr. G. W. Shepley who reef ived $2*i.nnn ror his services in the
Insurance commission, lie carried on
his own private practice during this
period, and frequently the proceedings
of tho commission were delayed while
lie appeared in thet court on olhor matters. But ho gathered in $22,000 in nine
months ending last March, and three
thousand during part of tho previous
three months. His associate. Mr. Tilley.
received Sl2/100 in pay. and Sl.inn in
living allowance and travelling expenses. The commissioners received
from $4,290 to $4,650 each ln nay plus
about $1,000 each in expenses, one of
them earning a salary as a Judge nnd
the others attending to their private
business during the year that this inquiry wont on. It does not appear that
tho commission accomplished much,
bnt it was worked for a political purpose so far as the government and the
mana-rers were able, .and the people have
paid $96,000 Tor the job.

Seven-Hasted   American   Schooner
Goes Down Rear Scilly Islands
���Only One Survivor.
Hughton, Scilly Islands, Dec. 14.���The
American seven masted schooner Thomas W. Lawson was wrecked in Broad
Sound. Scilly Islands, during a fierce
gale last night, and so far as known all
her crew excepting one man were lost.
The schooner turned turtle during the
night and is now floating bottom up.
Three dead bodies have been found off
Annette Island, an uninhabited island
off the Scilly group. Searching in the
vicinity of St.eXgnes light, a boat picked
up the solitary survivor and the dead
were brought back to St. Agnes. The
gale ls still blowing fiercely and the
seas are running mountains nigh.
New York. Dec. 14.���The Thomas W.
Lawson, which was wrecked in T.road
Sound last night, was the largest schooner and the only seven masted vessel.
The Lawson was launched at Qulncey.
Mass., in 1902, and was owned by the.
Coastwise Transportation Co. of Boston.
When wrecked she was under a charter
which brought her owners a return of
$78,000 a year. Thomas W. Lawson, the
financier, was part owner of the boat.
It was a peculiar coincidence that the
big seven master went to nor doom last
night���Friday, the 13th,���inasmuch as
that was the title of a book written by
Mr. Lawson. The schooner was 4,913
tons register.
London, Dec. 14.���The fierce gales
which have raged on the coasts ot the
United Kingdom for the past few daya
show little sign of abating and heavy
rains have flooded almost all the Interior low lands, while a most serious
wreck heappened near Sheerness this
monring. The cutter gunboat Speedwell was strjick by a heavy sea and went
down. There were thirteen nieu on
board at the time and only five of them
were rescued.
The entire Thames valley Is a huge
lake. The river Is out of its banks and
rising rapidly.
Boston. Dec. 14.���The Lawson which
was tost was not Insured, was com-
maunded by Captain George W. Dow,
of Melrose, Mass.
Hughtown, Dec. 14.���The number of
drowned is said to be 18. George Allen,
of London, the one survivir, was very
seriously injured and may not recover.
From what he says it seems that the
Lawson encountered prolonged bad
weather and lost all her boats on the
trip from Philadelphia. She sighted tbe
Scilly Islands yesterday afternoon and
dropped both anchors in the hopo that
the weather would moderate. The captain sent back one of the lifeboats that
came out to secure the assistance of a
steam tug. At midnight the wind rose
to hurricane force, and the vessel finally turned over. Allen says that the last
he saw of the captain and mate of the
vessel and the pilot they were lashed
to the rigging.
Session Over.
Mr. Justice Martin concluded the civil
sittings of the supreme court In Nelson
yesterday afternoon. Of the six cases
three were heard and judgment In
each case is reserved. They are llug-
gard vs. North American Land and Lumber company, Isaac vs. Miller and Forest

the written arguments of counsel will
be forwarded to the trial Jn.lse. tn Vesta
vb. Crow's Nest Pass Lumber company
judgment was entered In accordance
with the terms of a settlement reached
by the parties. Atwood vs. Kettle River
Valley Railway ls postponed by order of
Judge Brown. Harilgan vs. Granby Is
being heard ln Rossland today. In the
matter of the Last Chance Mining company A. M. Johnson obtained an order
confirming the acceptance of a syndicate's offer of I50.CJO for all the properly of the company.

Tomorrow win be tha third Sunday
In Advent. Next Saturday will be the
festival of Bt Thomas, "tha doubting
apostle,*' who could uot bcliuvo lu the
Beausreotlon until lie had seen aud
lunched t.he wounds of the rlBeli Saviour,
to whom Christ said; "Because thou
hunt seeu me thou hast believed.
Ulessed are they who have not seeu and
yet have believed."
The gospel tor the day la from St.
Matthew's account of the Inquiry seal
l.y St. John the Baptist from his prison
to know if the wonder worker of whom
he had heard were really the Messiah,
and Christ's answering command to the
messengers to tell St. John what they
saw and heard. His reference to St.
John's mode of life "Behold, they that
wear son clotlilng are In kind's houses,"
recalls St. John's account ol himself, as
"A voice cryinK in the wilderness." and
is typical of the life of l-enuneiaiion
and abnegation, that, has often been the
enforced lot of the reform *r. Nearly All j
the great religious and moral revivals
within and wihout the chu-ch hav, been
inlt luted by men who have chosen lives
or poverty and toil to appeal more
nearly to the many as successors to the
apostles Chan can in- done by the princes
of a rich and powerful ecclesiastical
organization. To all Buch St. John the
Baptist is the model, of whom Christ
said "A prophet and more than a prophet"
