Come Up-
In all probability the schools
will close (or the balance of the
term, and it ie by no means
likely that they will be again
reopened for the remainder
of the year. This is not on account
of the epidemic of scarlet fever that
is apparently getting worse each
day, three more cases having been
reported during the past 24 hours,
but on account of the lack of funds.
It is all but decided to send the
teachers notice that their services
will   no longer   be   required

The first meeting of the Progressive party to be held in Rossland,
the first of many to come, will be
held tonight in the lodge room of
the Miners' Union hall at 8 o'clock.
E very body who is a member of organized labor, or who is a friend to
the purposes of the meeting is invited to be present and take part
in the discussion of theorganizalion
of the party.
The business will be primarily
the election of officers for the year
of a local organization, and the appointment of a committee to draft
bylaws for the due governing of
the same.
After this is done there will be
a consideration of the planks of the
Kamloops platform adopted by the
delegates to the convention held
there a month ago, and it is more
than likely that several resolutions
dealing with the political questions
of the day, such as lead mining, the
mineral tax and other matters of
lively interest,  will be introduced.

if the cases charged by Dr. Reddick as originating at the schools
were really traceable to that source
it could only be in one of two ways,
from contagion in the school building or from infection from other
school children. Now if the disease
was contracted from the school
building the doctor Bhould have
seen that the buildings were properly disinfected before the reopening, and not waited until a fortnight later before doing so. If the
cases had arisen from other child-

whether they had not better at
once light out and hunt a berth,
rather than wait the chance of
there being sufficient funds in hand
to open the schools again in August
next.
There was a lengthy meeting of
the school trustees last night, and
the blame of the whole matter was
practically thrown upon the city
council. The city fathers will
meet tonight and will endeavor to
shift the responsibility that will in
future bear so heavily upon their
political career.
Complicating the whole matter
is the question whether or not the
health officer, Dr. Reddick, has
carried out his duties in an efficient
manner. Charges of uncleanlinees
are brought against the schools
and on the other hand charges of
what practically amounts to a
gross neglect of duty, warranting
instant dismissal if true, are
brought against Dr. Reddiok.
The question was precipitated
by the closing of the schools this
morning by Dr. Reddick on aoeount
of the outbreak of scarlet fever. He
stated in a letter written to the
trnstees tbat since the reopening
of the schools nine cases had occured within the past few days
and said it was undoubtedly the
case that they had been contracted
at school. He declared that one
of the Bchools, the Central, was in
a dirty condition and desired that
it Bhould be at once cleaned,
In reply to the matter touched
upon in this epistle the trustees
heard Mr. Tait of the Central
school. He acknowledged in defence that the school was dirty
and that it ought to be cleansed
by the janitor.   But he said that
were quarantined. He had been
supplied with a list of such children and had taken care that none
such were permitted in the schools.
Hence if school children from in-
infected houses were in the school
it could only be from the neglect
of the authorities (Dr. Reddick) in
failing to quarantine Buch   houeeB
Mrs. Chisholm told her fellow-
trustees that she was personally
aware of houses which were infected with scarlet fever which were
not quarantined, and of which
children going to school from an
adjoining home were allowed to
have the run. She knew at least
one such case which had resulted
in a child getting Bcarlet fever
while attending school. There
were numerous cases of like nature
among which Mrs. Chisholm mentioned the St. Lawrence hotel.
Houses on Nickel Plate ilat, the
Windsor hotel and other places, it
has also been alleged, have not
been properly quarantined.
A. G. Gait said that if these
things were as Btated it shewed u
disgraceful condition of affairs, but
he would have liked Dr. Reddick
to have been present to hear thc
statements made by hie fellow-
trustees. This elicited a statement
from Chairman McCraney that Dr.
Reddick had yesterday afternoon
promised to be present but had
failed to keep his word. The chairman had tried to find out hiB
whereabouts in the evening just before meeting, but had failed to locate him.
Then came up the   question of1
government grant would lapse,and
that instead of there being $10,000
of income availabe there would bo
only a little over $7000. The salaries of the teachers were about
$1000 monthly. They had been
paid to the end of April. If the
schools was reopened before the
close of the term the school trustees
would be liable for their salaries to
the end of July. This would mean
an expenditure of $8000 to meet
which they would only have $7000.
For the deficit the trustees would
become personally liable.
P. McDonald thought th-3 city
would have tn nav in anv case as
the law directed thai they ''ahull
pay."
A. C. Ualt said that they couid
not pay unless they had thc money.
After some other further discussion during which it was elicited
that no separate sum or fund had
heen set apart for the use of the
school trustees, and a scathing remark from tho chairman that the
city council were treating them as
if they were school children and
not Bchool trustees, il was determined to refer the communication
from the council buck and usk
whether indeed there was no more
money to be had. In such case
the school trustees would have to
send notice to the teachers immediately warning them that their
services would not he required
after June 12th.
A direction was made that the
schools he cleansed, and that the
sanitary inspector be asked to visit
them regularly.
During the day it has been decided that the school trustees meet
the city council tonight and and
consult on the matter.
The council's position is briefly
this: Under the municipal act the
city fathers are permitted to raise
li cents on real property fur
general revenue, one mill for hot
pital purposes nnd two mills for
schools. If this is not sufficient
this money may be supplemented
out of the general revenue. Mayor
Clute says the council had to meet
a deficit of $8000 from last year,
uncollected tuxes. Every available
cent has been expended. There is
no money from any source thai o n
be supplied to the school fund, und
that is all there is  to  the   mutter.

POLITICAL   SITUATION.
News is momentarily expected
from the coast of the fall of tin
Dunsmuir ministry and of the set
ting up in their place of the oppo
sition party, nominally led b>
Richard McBride. That news hni
bsen deferred, and it is just possi
ble that some coalition will bi
formed which will permit of th'
present premier leaving for th>
coronation conference immediatel
as the representative of ihis province.
Il is to be hoped, whether a co
alition is formed or not, whetht"
Richard McBride succeeds Jamei
Dunsmuir or whether that coa
magnate maintains his position fo
the present, lhat an appeal to th'
country will not be delayed om
moment longer than is absolute!;
necessary; for it is impossible ti
!»iiy under present conditions, wit)
the alteration made by redistribu
tion, whether any one of the present "representatives" of the peoph
will be returned by their old con
stiluencies to their present sealf.
It is more than probable that man;
faceB will be seen in the house 01
legislature in I Victoria that hav<
not before been there. And, on tin
other hand, it is more than likel;
that many a form that has gracec
the desks in that house for the pasi
generation will never again be
S3ated. Under such circumstance!-
it is absurd that the present "able''
set of legislators Bhould retail
their places for the next two years
to come until the expiration of
their term naturally again senib
them back to their constituents.
FREE TRADE.
Dear to the soul of the free trad
erB is his shibboleth "free trade.'
Freb trade is no longer a belid
with him, it is a religion. The
times and circumstances that introduced free trade into Great Britain have utterly changed and ye
tlie war cry of the Manchestei
sM'ool is ever free trade. Foi
twenty years past, ever since tin
■ lavs that "fair trade" raised it-
voice the question of the alteratior,
uf the policy of the old country in
this regard has yearly gained mon
and more prominence and thc first
entering of the wedge of the policj
of protection was marked in th'
present session of the British housi
of parliament.
It was argued, and in some quarters it is still contended, that the
British workingman will never
Bland a tax upon his bread. If tin-
tax were to go to the enrichment
of some grinder of the face of tin
poor it is more than probable that
this contention would be correct.
Witness the anti-corn law agi
lation. Similarity will come a day
when the working man of thi-
country will resent his exploilal
along similar lines for the benefit
of the few rich. But when thai
tax is levied for the benefit of the
whole people of the Empire, especially for the younger brethren.
and especially when that tax, as if
ably pointed out in a recent article
in the Vancouver Province, will be
but for a term, as Canada alone
will shortly be in a position to send
in all the wheat that is wanted, ii
is more than doubtful that any ob
jection will be raised to even more
drastic measures taken.
It is argued that there is no intention of rebating this tariff in
favor of the colonies, hut lhe people who argue in this manner are
either catching at straws to bolster
their argument or areuot Hiilliciinit-
ly wise themselves to comprehend
the meaning of a broadly imperialistic policy.
But the duty on flour is not
likely to be the only one that will
follow in due course of time.
Either a duty will have to put on
such articles as those in which the
■uipremacy of the manufacturer is
threatened, such as is done in this
country, or that article will no
longer be manufactured. And
again as Great Britain is broadly
idvancing along lines that are
known in this country as "labor
lines," -1 cing that the workingman
is not worked out in the prime of life,
md that he shall get a fair day'B
wage for a fair day's work, it will
become necessary to protect itself
agn inst the pauper labor of other less
enlightened countries. In fact it is
probable that one of the difficulties
^vhich will arise at the coming colonial conference will be the objection raised by such colonieB as
Australia against the admission of
Jhinese made goods from such
mother colony as British Columbia,
this land of the west, this land of
the free.
That protection will engender
trusts seems possible from the example of the republic to our south.
But that the begetting of trusts is
?ure to follow is not certain for
New Zealand is a highly protected
country, but a trust there is
going to have a poor time in trying
to bribe a labor government to leg
islate against itsown interests.

The fi th annual meeting ol the shareholders

in Toronto on Mtr. h 7th.
Th« net profits of the year after paying all

amounted to $207,848.39. After pnying a dividend nt the rate of teu per cent per annum, a balance of $28,142, 89 was carried forward to the
cre.lit of profit end Iosb.
This company's assets are their coal mines

OUGHT TO KNOW
Twenty Years Settler Tells
the Tale.
CONDITIONS IN NEW ZEALAND
Positive   Refutation  of the  Story
Lately Published on the
Coast.
In discussing the various features of the New Zealand constitution at the Rainier Grand last
evening, says the Seattle Post Intelligencer, H. A Massey, who for
twenty years has been a resident of
the colony, said:
"In its general structure, the
New Zealand government is modeled after that of the mother country. At the head of affairs and
representing lhe crown iB the premier, supported by the ministry.
In the legislative branch are two
houses, the members of the house
of representatives being elected by
the people and of the upper body
being appointed by tho premier
from the many districts in the two
islands. The judiciary differs
little from the English system.
The chief justice holds office for
life.
"Rut many points of dissimilar
ity may be detected in general
governmental affairs. The method
of arbitration between employer
and employe has had a pretty
thorough test and has proved eminently satisfactory. When the
men in a factory, for instance, believe their wages should be higher
they present the matter in proper
form to tbeir employer. If he does
not see fit to accede to their request
they may lay their case before tbe
board of arbitration, which is composed of representatives of both
capital and labor, and is presided
over by a man skilled in the law.
Should either side care to appeal
from the decision of the board the
case may be taken before the
upper court, the findings of which
are final and binding for   a   year.
Of course, as in all legal disputes, it is difficult to please everyone, but nostrikes havo taken place
since the introduction of the system, and it bus generally given
satisfaction to both sides.
"The revenue derived from the
land and income taxes proves ample for the support of ordinary
governmental affairs. There is a
small surplus each year. A tax of
one penny to the pound, or of four
mills on the dollar, is levied on the
unimproved value of land. This
is something like the single tax,
but is not .altogether tho Bame
The tax on each man's land increases in proportion to the size of
his holding. The object of the
government is to prevent the accumulation of land by the indivi-
vidual, and the measure has a tendency toward this result. Improvements on the land are not
taxed.
"The income tax is graduated
also. An exemption of £250 a
year is allowed. From £500 to
£1000 the tax is 2.5 per cent, above
£1000, 5 per cent.
"In order to encourage settlement in the islands the government buys large tracts of land
from individuals and improves
them, making surveys, etc. The
cost of this improvement is then
added lo the original cost and the
land are leased in perpetuity to
settlers, the government retaining
title and receiving as rental a
moderate interest on the outlay.
In addition to this aid to immigration settlers are loaned money at
4 per cent to make improvements
and carry on farming   operations.
"When a man reaches the age of
65 years and haB lived in New
Zealand for twenty-five years h<
is granted a pension of $90 a year
upon representation that he is
needy. This haB proved an excellent arrangement.
"The result of governmental
ownership of railways as carried
pa ia New Zealand is   satisfactory.
The Bervice is good and the rates
are reasonable. The government
is rapidly extending the system into all parts of the colony. This
with the surplus over operating
expenses and with a part of the
general revenue surplus. First
class passengers are charged three
cents a mile and second class two
cents.
"To carry on all these operations
requires a large outlay of capital,
which is borrowed in England.
The national debt is increasing
all the time, but not more rapidly
than the population, and the colony is not burdened.
"New Zealand has a population
of 850,000. The capital, Wellington, iB a place of 50,000 people.
Auckland is the largest city with
a population of 60,000. New Zealand comprises two iBlandB, the
combined length of which (they
lie end to end) is 1000 miles. Any
climate is to be found in the
islands, ancl agriculture in any
form may be carried on extensively.
The future of the country I consider bright,"
Mr. and Mrs. Massey are in
Seattle on a pleasure trip through
the United States. They will be
in this city fur two or three days.

Victoria, May 12.—Nothing has
occurred to change the political
situation so far as ordinary observation can determine since the adjournment of the hoUse.
A somewhat remarkable statement, coming from a source of undoubted reliability, is however attributed to Mr. Greenshields. to
the effect that he said:
"We will carry the railway bill."
The cloBe poll of the standing of
the parties on thia measure on Friday, did not warrant any such outcome of events, and there is much
speculation here as to whother any
real causes exist for this display of
confidence.
Interviewed tonight, Hon. Mr.
Wells denied absolutely that any
lengthy adjournment, as suggested,

Ottawa, May 13.—It is expected
that parliament will prorogue tomorrow, The minister of the interior reported to the council submitting that as no general advantage had been taken of tbe regulations governing the grazing of
cattle on Dominion lands within
the railway belt of British Columbia, and as a number of individual applications for grazing leases
for lands within the railway belt
had been received, he considered it
advisable that authority should be
obtained to deal with such applications under the provisions of the
regulations for the administration
of grazing lands in Manitoba and
the Territories. Accordingly, the
minister was authorized" to deal
with the applications for grazing
lands within the railway belt and
to issue warrants under Northwest regulations.
The house sat on Saturday and
cleared the order paper of all private bills. The Yukon Representation Bill passed with an amendment that when the writ is issued
the clerk in chancery shall notify
the chief justice, who shall forth

that his expenses in connection
with the mayoralty were heavy.
Other solutions have been offered
by other citizenB, but none to exactly meet the issue.
The best proposition that has
yet emanated from any ollicial is
that the teachers be given immediate notice and thus some $1600
saved and to wait till just before the
school reopens to see what will
have turned up!!
A non ollicial suggestion is lhat
if the salaries are saved during the
six weeks of July and June there
will be a saving of $1000, and in
addition to this if the city council
servo without fee for the balance
of their term there will be another
paving of $1900,which sumB together will about make up the   deficit.
The whole matter is to be taken
up tonight and if it is not satisfactorily settled it is more than probable that Ihe people will themselves take it up and call a mass
meeting.
The shutting up of the schools
is unprecedented in Canada and it
is a grave question whether the
government cannot resume the
charter of tho city under such cir-
cumstanceB.
In the meantime the city council are not spoken of in flattering
terms within the homes of citizens
1 r on the public streets.

THAT WICKED COMPOSITOR!
Irreverent Joke Perpetrated on a German Band.
That irreverent joker, the typesetting machine, has been at it
again. On Saturday afternoon it
shocked the feelings of the community through the columns of
The Evening Citizen, (Ottawa), by
stating that:
"Considerable amusement was
caused by a German band this
morning taking a position in front
of an O'Connor street saloon and
playing Nearer By God to Thee."
We desire to express regret for
the publication of the item in
question and to retract, withdraw
and apologize for the statement
that the little German band was
guilty of that particular atrocity.
It has enough sins lo bear.
