The false rumor, �� couple of dnys
ngo, of I'oneo in South Africa, says tlie
Winnipeg Frets Press, line sot military
men in tlio city discussing ns to
whether lha contingent for South
Africa, that the Government is sending, should go in case there is un immediate prospect of peace Friday,
several military officers in the city
were interviewed before it was known
that the news of peace was uot reliable.
All expressed themselves of the opinion that whether peace was declared or
not tho contingent should be sent, both
rt.s a matter of Imperial policy nnd because tho country would need mounted

General French, who has been in
Winnipeg the past week, and who left
Moud.iv for Halifax and England, expressed a contrary opinion, lie said
that although the Canadians would, ol
course, bo welcome, und good soldiers
be needed in South Africa, still, il
peace were in sight, or if it were to bo
slcclared before the troops sail, it would
wo a mistake to send them, Other
troops are a gteat deal nearer the scene
of the conflict, and iho question of the
expense in sending them would also be
a big factor. Gen. French expects

FRIDAY, ArniL 18, 1902.
(Victoria Times.)
From Il.e very beginning of its proceedings tl.e Roynl Commission at lire-
sent silting iu this city for the ostensible purpose of inquiring into certain
matters clearly affecting the Government has been regarded as a farce. Ii
has always been taken for granted ii,
British countries that the presiding
officer ol a tribunal, be it high or low,
will be perfectly impartial in his rulings. Rich and poor, influential nnd
obscure, stand upon the same plan*
wheu they approach our courts ami
ask for judgment. It i* only under a
deep sense of responsibility, therefore,
tliat we feel called upon to enter a pro
test against the rulings, or rnther the
absence of rulings, in the jsroceeding-
now being hell before Mr. Justice
Walkem. No man should be censured
for hiving opinions upon the political
questions of the day; bnt when a
ju 'go is nj.pointed to preside over a
court constituted for the purpose of
inquiring into matters of a political
nature, lie might at least be expected
to conceal the bins of his mind until
the case is fully before him. Yet we
find Mr. Greeushields exonerated cn
his own evidence from the charge of
acting as agent for two parties to an
important transaction in which millions of dollar* of public money nud
millions of acres of publio land are
involved. But despite the verdict of
the judge, there can be no doubt in the
public mind, from evidence given sub-
sequent to that of Mr. Greeushields,
that the ministers all said the promoter noted for the Government in the
negotiations. Uniler oath the same
ministers denied all their former state*
menis. They could not be telling the
truth iu both instances. Therefore, it
apparent that Mr. Curtis was warranted iu bringing his charges, and
that ho and his cuusel woic worthy of
courteous uud fair treatment befoiethc
court. In regard io theciinrge against
thu premier we shall not offer an opin-
iou. The public has heard the evi
deuce, and no doubt it has formed, or
partially foriue.1, an opinion. Possibly
it ii nut yet too late to banish the
grotesquu features which have hiiherto
oliaraotct'ize-l the proceedings und insist iijioii the observance of pros, er dig
uity aud decorum. When a queatlon
put io witness is declared to be relev
suit it should be within the power of
lhe commissioner to order that it be
answered. If it be not endowed with
thai power the commissioner should at
once declare the court dissolved and
b**i. g the farce to an.end.
In the Hous,', Hon. Mr. Borden,
minister of mllltla, announced shut the
Canadian miliiia was to be increased
from 35,000 to 100,000 men, Thia
was to be done by tl.e establishment of
rifle clubs. A contract has alio bean

Washington, April 7-The House

"Of cour.el know you, Maud." Since
then he hss beeu unconscious.
While arrangements tor the funeral
