Rutherford Harris, former secretary of the British Chartered South
Africa company was asked this

Harris replied tbat the rumor was
entirely without foundation.
A similar alleged agreement was
carried by the Central News and
published by some of the many
papers, which issued extra editions.
It appears to have originated
in the town of Pontpool, adjacent
to Llangibly.

words of the code message received

SECRETARY WAS FOLLY.
Referring to the charges proved
against certain Australian officers
last October the truth of which
haB has only been admitted by the
British war department recently,
the Toronto Telegram says, editorially:
"Publicity would have been safer
than secrecy even in dealing with
a case bo atrocious as the alleged
crime for which those Australian
officers were justly executed.
"Hanging was too good for the
criminals if they disgraced their
country by the murderous cruelty
which exposed them to the speedy
justice of a court martial.
"If the fact of the crime and the
record of its punishment has been
reported thero would have been
no anxiety in .Australia and no
ill-founded assumption that these
evil doers were shot for a military
offence.
"Australian public opinion has
a good right to be interested in the
fate of Australian soldiers. Canadian pnblic opinion has the same
right. Itis not to the point to rebuke this interest with reference
to experiences of regular soldiers.
Public opinion in the United Kingdom is responsible fcr the trrat-
ment which is dealt out to the
British regular.
"Colonial public opinion cannot
interfere between the regular B( 1
dier and his masters, the tax-payers of England. If the facts already
reported are verified their will be
no public opinion in Australia or
any other part of the empire to
dissent from the verdict that
hanging was too good for the subjects of Lord Kitchener's stern justice. The pity is that the facts
were concealed, and that there was
ahy attempt on the part of the
authorities to disguise the truth."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The moBt remarkable feature of
the sittings of the commission
which waB appointed to investigate
the chargeB made by Mr. Smith
Curtis, seems to be the facility for
rapid adjournments.—Province.
The price of gas in Glasgow under civic management is under 50
cents per 1000 cubic feet the loweBt
on record, and less than half what
waB charged by the gaB company
before the city took over the plant.
The difference in price results in
an advantage to the present consumers equal to about £625,000 per
annum.
budget will show a surplus over expenditure of nearly $500,000. This
is the country from which frightened capitalists were to lly on account of the radical legislation
enacted. A country wilh surpluB of
half a million, which has sent nine
contingents to South Africa and is
prepared to send as many more if
necessary can safely be left to work
out its financial and political salvation with perfect safety.

i     the_Strand
Referring to the vacancy in the
local legislature and the refusal of
the sp.nker of the house to force
action by the government, the
NewB-Advertiser sayB editorially:
"For the speaker who sees his mandate ignored day after day, and
week after week, there can be
nothing but the profoundest contempt. In his hands rests the honor and dignity of the house. He is
at once the embodiment of its
power and the exponent of its
rights and privileges. By the present incumbent of the office its high
traditions are not maintained."
Speaking on the Budget in the
house of commons, Mr. Wade, of
Annapolis, Nova Scotia, concluded
his speech with reference to the
national spirit which was abroad
in Canada. "I am going to refer,'
he said, "to a subject on which we
can all agree. I mean the war in
South Africa, and the Canadian
heroes of Hart's river. (Cheers.)
Those men preferred death rather
than surrender. They have added
a lustre to the name of Canada
that will be as enduring as time
and with Buch deeds before us and
with the records of our former contingents tbat have gone to South
Africa, may we not, regardleBB of
political party, feel proud today
that we call ourselves Canadians."

HUGE BFEF TRUST
New  Yorkers   Forced to
Pay Prohibitive Prices.
SIX HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS
Controlled   by Four   Firms—Great
Advance Within a Year—Prices
Much Lower Abroad.
New York, April 11 —The Herald Bays there is an unofficial combination of interests known as tlie
beef trust, completely dominating
the provision market of the United
States and controlling trade aggregating $000,000,000 annually. Of
the yearly business $500,000,000 is
handled by only four firms, who cooperate to the smallest details of
regulating supply and demand
from the stockyards to the retail
market. These are Armour <fc Co.,
Swift & Co., G. H. -Hammond &
Co. and Nelson A. Morris & Co.
Their recent action in "skying"
prices has aroused murmurB of
open rebellion from New York
meat dealers, but the beef trust
employs a.stafi of experts, whose
business it is to whip the recalcitrant dealers back into line—to
make them submit or be driven
out of business. The strategic policy of the beef trust has become
steadily more despotic and aggressive, until wholesale and retail
butohers in New York and other
cities who will not sign the ironclad agreement of the Chicago combination are driven out of business
by scores, both by being cut off
from supplies and being openly
undersold by agencies especially
established for the purpose of crushing competition.
The Herald says that as a result
of the latest "squeeze" engineered
by the pooled interests the middlemen and the consuming population
of New York have been forced to
pay, withiD the last week.advances
on prices already abnormally high
of from three to four centB for beef,
mutton and pork. There has been
a similar rise in other cities, until
the increased profits of the beef
trust over the scale of 1901 are conservatively estimated at $100,000,-
000. The recent movement makeB
fresh meat an almost prohibitive
luxury to thousands of families in
this city.
While there has been an increase
of from two to four cents a pound,
in the face of prices already abnormally high, American meats
are being sold in Europe by the
beef trust at prices much lower
than in the United States. Yet
the agents of the beef trust claim
that the unprecedented price advances are caused by a scarcity of
live stock in the west.
The Herald gives the following
scale of advances in price within
one year:
Wholesale—Dressed beef, from
OJc to 9|c per lb ; lamb from 8c to
lHcperlb.; mutton, from 8c to
lie per lb.; veal, from 8c to 13c
per lb.; pork, from 6c to 9c per lb.
Retail—Sirloin steak, from 16c
to 20c per lb.; porterhouse steak,
from 20o to 22c per lb.; round
steak, 16c to 18o per lb.; mutton,
from 12o to 14c per lb.; lamb, from
12c to 15c per lb.

BRITISH PACIFIC CABLE.
Melbourne Reports  It Has Reached
Fiji Islands.
Melbourne, April 11.—The Pacific cable has reached the Fiji
islands.
The laying of the Pacific cable
referred to in the dispatch from
Melbourne was decided upon at
the colonial conference held in
London in 1887,but the survey was
not completed until 1889. After
the report was published in 1899,
an agreement was entered into by
the imperial government with Canada and the Australasian colonies
for the .construction, laying and
maintenance of an all British Pacific cable. A landing site for the
cable has been purchased at Kelp
bay, Barclay sound, Vancouver
island.

A Clerical Wit.
After a church conference held
a few days ago, two brother ministers had a friendly tilt regarding
meaning of a certain passage in
ono of Shakespeare's plays. They
could not come to an understanding about it, and one of them remarked jokingly, "Oh, well,
brother, I will ask Shakespeare
when I meet him in heaven." "But
suppose Shakespeare did not get
lo heaven?" retorted the other.
"Then you can ask him about it,"
was the quick reply.

Gossip as to Likely Commanders of the Four
New Regiments.
Ottawa, April 10.—The talk today in militia circles is who will
command the fourth contingent.
Four colonels will be required.
Col. LesBard is certainlv one who
will be first offered the position,
Lt.-Col. Williams of Toronto, is also spoken of and
so is Lieutenant-Colonel Turner,of
Quebec. It is just probable that
Lt.-Col. Perry or Lt.-Col. SaunderB
of the Mounted Police will get a
command, but so far nothing definite has been done.

Resentment Towards the  Men Who

New York, April 11.—A London
cable to the Times repeats a dispatch to the London Times from
Melbourne, Australia, saying that
public opinion has changed in regard to the execution in South
Africa of Australian officers for the
murder of Boers. The Australians,
says tho correspondent, deeply resent the stigma cast on the good
name of thoir soldiers by a few
Australians who were not members
of the regular contingents.

London, April 10.—The amount
of Mr. Rhodes' fortune has yet to

says the will disposed of six million pounds, while other papers estimate that the sum of two million
pounds has been devoted to the

The Standard says there is something fantastic in the ruleB laid
down by Mr. Rhodes for the election of scholars, and fears that his
