Joly with tbe B. C. South Afrioa volunteers aoting as escourl. A large
number of spectators wore   preaent.
Hey. tt. B. Blytl.e, who wns a

Most of the members were in their

taken tho oath of allegiance to the
Mr. Speaker and   Gentlemen of tho
Legislative Assembly:-
I now welcome you t. the Second
Session of the Ninth Parliament.
Since your last meeting we have had
to deplore the loss of our beloved Sovereign, Queen Victoria, wbo, during
her long and beneficent reign, had become endeared to the heart, of all her
subjects. In no part ol Her Majesty's
dominions were her many noble qoali
ties at a sjueen and a woman more
highly admired, or has h.r death been
more deeply lamented, than in British
Columbia. I trust you will take an
early opportunity to pass an address
of condolence to the Royal Family,
expressing the deep sense of bereave-
ment which is fell by the | eoplss of this
While deploring the evont which
rendered necessary the succession of
Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, it Is
a satisfaction, nevertheless, to welcome
as our Pufor one upon whom we can
rely to follow in the footsteps of bis
mother; and I will ask you to couple
with your resolution of condolence one
of weloome and congratulation lo our
new Sovereign, King Edward VII., on
his accession to the throne.
As a mark of appreciation of tha
valiant services rendered by the volunteers trom British Columbia wbo went
to South Africa to assist tba Empire
in tha war with the Transvaal and the
Orange Free Sine, my Goverument
will introduce a measure authorising
the conveyance to them of free grants
of land.
A measure will be submitted amending the School Aot.

and I am pleased to announce that
this will be brought about.
For the purpose of promoting settlement, .iiy Government j. considering

A decision wat rendered on Feb. 23rd
in Wii.nij.eg, by tiie Court of King's
Bench, In regard to the powers of the
Provincial Legislature to pass an Act
prohibiting any traflic in liquor in the
Judgments ;werc liamlod down in
the case by Chief Justice Killam and
justices Bain nnd Richards. They w.re
unanimous in sleclarissg that thePro-
bibltiott.Act pasjsed b.t ihc^Logislature
is unconstitutional. In the judgment
it is pointed out that tno legislation
under consideration differs from prior
legislation on tlie subject of the liquor
traffic. Whilst the iatter sought to
restrict or regulate the tralH.',tlieMs,ii*
toba Liquor Act sets out that its object
is to suppress the traffic altogether.
This legislation the CouH'holds infringes on a subject which, by the British
North America Act, is specially placed
dnder, the jurisdiction of tlio Federal
Parliament, and cannot be considered
as a matter affecting property or civil
right, or of a local character.

McMillan with the usual ceremonies
yesterday afternoon. The following
is the speech frum tho thraue:
Mr.    Speaker   und  Gentlemen   of tho
Legislative assembly :���
1 have much pleasure in welcoming
you for the first time ae tho occupant
of the office to which I have been
lately called. My pleasure in meeting you is enhanced by the faot that
1 was till recently a member of this
assembly, and also because my Interests for many years have been identified with those of this province.
In addressing you, the uppermost
thought In my mind Is tho decease of
our venerable and beloved Queen,
and the accession of her son, King
Edward VII.
Never was such a tribute paid to
woman as that bestowed upon the
Queen at her death. The world wept
over her bier. As for her subjects,
thoy reverenced her equally as a
woman and as Queen. As maiden,
wife, mother and widow, sia-nleSH in
character, faithful to duty, forgetful
of self, quick, tender and discerning
in sympathy, reverent of truth aud
religion, she exalted womanhood.
Blended with their love und devotion
to the woman was their VneruUtm
and truBt in tho Queen. Ihey raw
in her the type of .t Constitutional
nxnarch, whose ono aim was her
people's welfare, and who ! rought
to the performance oi Iho lnbo.'.uis
duties of her august station of single
eye, a pure heart, vast political
knowledge and wisdom, unbending
rectitude, a deep love of peace, order and freedom, and an energy
which never flagged. Tho striking
features and events of her reign���
tho extension and growth of tho empire, tho development of trado and
commerce, tho progress of ari and
science, tho increased comfort, and
prosperity of the people, the diffusion of education and culture: the
advance in freedom of speech and act,
in social and political equality-were
associated in all minds with the
Queen. It was her purity and nobility of character, her knowledge of
and her pridu and trust iu her people that made these beneficial changes possible.
Our new King enters on his roign
under the fairest auguries. His mature years, his wido knowledge of
rulers and statesmen and of the national temper.and aims, his tact and
urbanity, his love for his people,
qualify him for the great duties to
which he has succeeded. It is the
prayer of every citizen of the empire
that the roign begun with such promise may prove not less beneficial
nor less splendid thnn that which
has just closed amid the homage of
mankind. Resolutions expressive of
the veneration cherished for her late
majesty's memory and of our devotion to thu new occupant of the
throne will be submitted to you.
Next in national importance to the
death of Queen Victoria and the accession of Edward VII has been the
continued war in South Africa, lt
bas become clearer than ever that
war was forced on tho empire by the
empire by the outrageous pretensions
and demands of the representatives
of the two former republics. Among
the fruits of the struggle���now, it is
to bo trusted, approaching a close-���
havo been the evidence which it lias
afforded of tho unity of the empire,
the now ties by which the self-governing colonies have been knit to the
homeland and to one another, aud
the valor, endurance and capacity exhibited by tho soldiers of the Queen,
und, not least of all, by those sent
by this Dominion. Every Canadian
has felt a pride in perusing the narrative of the achievements of the regiments which Canada has placed in
the field, and has been gratified by
the warm reception with which the
returning troops have boen greeted
by all ranks in England, beginning
with the sovereign. The enthusiasm
und applause with which the soldiers
belonging to this province and the
Northwest havo been welcomed here
attested at onco our admiration of
their courage and our loyalty to the
throne and empire.
Certain contracts, by which my
government will have tho power to
fix freight rates on certain lines of
railway in thu province and to and
from Lake Superior, will be submitted to you for your consideration.
Provision will also be made for the
construction of certain other lines of
railway in the vrovlnco during tho
present year.
Other measures to be submitted
wilt Include: Compulsory education,
properly safeguarded; personal registration of voters; and for tho consolidation of the statutes of the prov
ince. ���
The public accounts and reports of
Ihe several departments will lw submitted to you.
Tho estimates for the current year
havo been prepared with as great
economy as la consistent with efficient service, and will, at an early
date, be placed before you.
I regret to say that tho school
lands and moneys belonging to the
province have not as yet been handed over by the Dominion government
for administration by the province.
I trust that the blessing ot God
will rest upon your labors, and that
tho measures adopted will contribute
to the welfare of the province.

I was willing to try anything that
seemed to offer hope of a cure I got
several boxes. I had been using the
pills nearly a month before I found
much relief, but from that day on my
recovery wus rapid, and in tho

they were miners, sawmill hands and
lumbermen���and they serenely told the
conductor to go to when he demanded
fare. He tried to put two or three of
them off his train, but got bla uose broken and two or three teeth knocked out
as a result. We sent our best men up
the brunch, but tbey were licked as
fast us they appeared. In this emergency I was Instructed to.secure the
aid of a prizefighter. 1 went down to
Chicago and got aome of the boys to
put me on to a heavyweight, and at au
Interview with him I told him whut
was wanted. He was to act as brake-
man nnd do the knocking down and
dragging out for the conductor. When
I nsked If he thought he could clean
out tbe deadheads, he laughed and replied:
"It'll be peanuts forme. I'll hump
and bang tho lot till they'll bccouio as
gentle as kittens."
He wus n big fellow and a fighter
with a record, and though his terms
were pretty high we accepted them
and Installed him. It was all on the
quiet, you know���a little surprise party

there were nine lusty chapB who refused to come down with the cash, and

his chin nnd pulled out most of his tmlr,

find him. He was the saddest looking

The New York Press takes the view
that Russia's action In discriminating
against United States imports It the
outcome ot a well-matured and vigorous
polioy of retaliation. It does not believe in the theory that the recent
imposition by the United State, of ���
���urtax on Russian beet sugar was the
exciting cause of the commercial war
that has just been declared by the Czar.
Rutsla's commercial hostility to the
United States wat clearly manifested
towards tho close of last year when a
prohibitory tariff wa. placed on United

tariff took effect on Jan. 1 last, Tbe

became effective on March 1, so that
after that date the United State, will
be practically ousted from both Euro
pean and Asiatic Russia. -The im
mediate and sweeping nature ofthe
retaliation," saya the Press, "shows
tbat the Czar's Government not only
sought war but sought to avoid peace."

States. The total exports of the United States to RuBsia amounted last
year to only $11,000,000, or lets tban

forerunner of a combined policy of
retaliation by the other European
