aud to that extent the invasion ot the

principle the faot that wo o oupied 111,*

Boeis at Pleter'e knew nothing of Cron

statement that he had surrendered,

Ottawa, March 23.���Hon. Mr. Mu*
leck, poitmaster-general, iu tbe house
tod-sy moved bis fair wage, resolution,
which i, as follows: "That it bo resolved, tbat all governmeit eontrac s
should contain snoh conditions as will
prevent abuses, which mty triso from
the .ub*lelting of suoh oontrtots, snd
that every effort shonld be made to secure ths piyment of such wages as are
generally accepted es onrrent in each
trade for competent workmen in the
distriot where tne work is ca.ried out;
..nd thut t1 is house cordially concurs
iu suoh polioy, and deems it the duty
of the government to take immediate
steps to give effect thereto. It is hereby declared that the work ta which the
foregoing polioy shall apply includes
uot only work nndertaken by tlio gov
eminent Itself, bnt also all works aided
by grant of Dominion pnblio funds.'
Mr. Mnlo k said that the first time
tbat a resolution of ihis kind was
moved wu In tbe Imperial parliament
in 1891. Not only niii the resolution
he was proposing deal witb government
works, hut oth- r works of pnblic character. Canada had the experience ol
tbe nia-eher -ooutry in this matter. It
wonld be necessarc to frame regulations
for the proper oarrying ont of the icso-
The first two propositions dealt with
tbe expenditure ot publio money to
those who supplied material aud labor.
As to the quo lion of sot-contracts, the
enforcement of wbat be proeporcd iu
this resolution wonld be most desirable.
The contractor would have to be re
sponsible foi hi. agents and it would
not be possible for any contractor to tie
Irund bis workmen ont of their just
rights. Then, as to tbat part ot the
resolution whioh referred to fnir wages,
it ought tohavegentralsuppoir. Contractors fnquently secured foreign
workmen, and thus polled down the
labor market in this way. His resolution wonld put it beoyud contractors'
interests to leek to interfere witb the
labor market. Contractors will natural*
ly utilize all local labor before applying to outside. Wbat Ihe country was
interested iu was to eee that workmen
got a fair day's wages for a fair da/s
Mr. D. O. Fraser thonght the resoln*
r'on contained good work of a good
Mr. Puttee read form Imperial reports what had been done in connection
with tho adoption of a similar insolation by the British parlinmeLt with a
view of showing that it was effective.
The sub-committees' report, after six
years of its worikng found very little
fault with the plan iu Britaiu. AilJ-
mau who will read tlu report of tbe
committee and the report of Mr. Buxton, a member of that committee nno
tl.o original introducer of the resolution
in the English honse of commons, could
not say lhat there wu anything in
either of these reports that in nny way
condomns that resolution, ur con-
doranedlhe objeoti sought or that it
showed these objects were not attained.
The principle underlying u ' resolution
snch as thst now befo.e the bou e was
tbat of justice ml falrnetB ns between
employer aud i mployee. The effect ol
the o-nlract tsday wu tint to do certain work wu apparently lo plaoe all
responsibility for fair dealing upon tbe
contractor, but as a matter of faot a
man performing lor the conntry tbl.
work has actually been, U an emp oyot
of labor. Now, nnder a contract tbt
responsibility is delegated, and under
tho system of competition as wo have
It now it wu often delegated into very
unworthy hands. Ho believed tbit on
all pnblio work, the goverument should
be an employer ot labor; tbat it sbouln
do Hi own work, and at a fair, living
rate of wages. It had been demonstrated that this oonld be done eati-fa ���
torily; that lt conld be done well aim
done economically. Many large oilier
and some towns bad tested this matter,
and the results hid b on most sttisfac*
lory, hiving shown ft to be far superior
to tbe contract system. It requires, ol
course, that wo should have men good
enough. Tbtt principle, which was
laid down in the motion, wonld be applied end conld be applied. It hid
been applied by the British government
and some otber impo tont bodies. Several oilios both in England antl In tbis
country have adopted a similar method.
Some cities bave even gone further.
The oity of Wiuuipeg, for instance, had
adopted a minimum rate, a rate aolual
lv higher than tbe onrrent rate aud this
being taken to a court of law lo settle
whether a city had power to adopt thut
principle, it was proved that this
polioy was a good pnblio polioy because-
It wu so held by tbe court. The state-
should, at least throw its weight on
tho side of the better rather than ou
the side of tbe worse conditions of em
loyment. Thtt was what be considered was the ptineiple involved.

telegraph aud besought him on their
knees to disclose the name of his antagonist, but he steadfastly refused
tud died with tho secret In his breast.
The student! not only excused bli
conduct, but praised bli courage, and
when his remains wero taken to the
railwny station to be transported to a
distant olty tbey accompanied the fit;

The students olaimed be wu not n suicide, for he was killed In an honorable
duel, and they maintained thnt Ids opponent was not nccessory to bis dcnlb

v*bor," vald a Boaton man. "before tbe
dresa luit had cait its blighting ibndow
- there and when Rodlck'a and tbe 'fish
pond* were tbe center of all the gayety.
life waa pleasant, even though many of'
thi' conveniences wblcb wc now demand
w*-re wholly lacking. Hodlck's was a
hero of a place, with no elevntor nud In-
noceut of electric bells. One msn In imminent need of Ice water once ol��;nlned
It, however, by going. Ipto the hat. and
yelling 'Murder!' nt the top of his Inuga.
He gathered together most of the lintel
guests and Anally got the Ice witter of
his soul's desire, but bis success did not
���eem to establish n precedent.
"The fire deportment was, so to speak,
In embryo. In the Hod Ick at the hend of
each stairway there used, to stand n large
hogshead of water for use In an emergency, and thereby bangs tbe tale I nm
' about to tell you,
"I.nte of an evening there entered the
deserted 'fishpond' a young man whose
fixed and glassy eye and wnudcrlng
smile betrayed what bis evening's occu-
Bitloo had been. In order to settle any
ngerlng doubt as to his condition, how
aver, he proceeded to emit Jl series of
blood curdling shrieks, which called forth
a hasty and ampbaflc protest from tbe
night clerk, who, on advancing upon the
Inebriated one, was promptly laid low by
a right handcr. Tbe nlgbt force. In an
angry array promptly went to the succor
ot tbo night clerk, whereat his assailant
retreated up stairs, closely followed by
his pursuers.
"Reaching the landing, he espied the
hogshead of water, which he promptly
heaved down the stairway npon his opponents, who, drenched by tbe wnter and
carried off their feet by the butt Itself,
In a "wild state of rage renewed the attack, only to be treated to tbe same dose
on tbe second flight of stairs nnd yet again
on tbe third, at which point, his ammunition being exhausted, they captured nnd
got even with the belligerent one.
"In the morning great was the anger
and loud tho lamentations of Herr Rodick
at the state of his stairway and the damaged condition of his nlgbt force, but he
who bad accomplished the outrage was
rich in this world's goods, from part of

Tho    Formosa    Sarnces    Won    the
Match With tha KaaUshwem.
Tbe wild mountaineers of Inner For*
mosa arc still very little known. The
few whites who have met thom tell
stories about tbem tbnt are either amusing or curious, Here Is one of the stories
that Golborne Baber told: He said a
party of English officers from a man-of-
mA-vrar landed on the Island and met a lot
ot natives who were armed witb match-
. locks. Tbe Englishmen had an Inter-
' prater, and the natives talked freely witb
them. At last tbe whites challenged the
natives to a trial of skill in shooting, and
the offer was accepted.
The Englishmen fastened a mark to a
tree about 100 yards distant. Tbe officers ind off and made what they considered pretty lair practice, but tbe natives
didn't seem to tM at all Impressed. Then
tbe fellows with the matchlocks were la-
formed that It was tbeir turn, and, much
to the surprise of the whites, every man
of them threw himself on bis belly and
began to crawl through the underbrush
toward the target. They squirmed over
the ground to within about three yards
of tbe target, then blued away, and, of
course, every mtfa hit the mnrk exactly
In tbe center,
"Look barer Hid the whites. "This
Isn't exactly fair, Is it*?" Then they explained to the aborigines the accepted
rules of target practice. The natives listened witb mnch Interest and then made
this comment:
"Well, we don't know anything about
the way you mun shoot at marks, bat
we've just shown yon bow we shoot
Chinese, nnd why shouldn't we shoot at
a mark the same way? We want to bit
things when we fire, nnd why shouldn't
, up fire the way we can shoot best}"
Nothing conld convince tbem that tbey
hadn't won tbe match, and they walked
off with tbe small prise the whites had
pnt up for the best marksmanship.���Exchange. .   ..       '.

Investigation! Into tbe results of mar-
��� triages between deaf persons produce several highly Interesting facts. As would
naturally be supposed, onions In cases
whore bath pnHncri nro deaf are far
more liable to result In deaf offspring
thnn ordinary marriages. But the proportion of such instances la only about 10
per cent nnd the proportion of deaf children bm-n therefrom 8ft per cent, while
the proportion of deaf, children born of
ordinary marriages scarcely attains Tper
cent. It also transpires that deaf persons having deaf relatives and married to
deaf partners are very liable to deaf offspring, consanguinity being an element
specially favorable to tbe transmission of
auricular malformations. All these results are strictly In accordance witb the
two laws of heredity which lay down
that a physical anomaly tends to be
transmitted to the offspring and that off*
spring tend to wert to the, normal type.

The Traps That Are Laid For Taeaa
by Foreign Aristocrats.
An Amertonn girl bnd better be dend
thnn marry n fnrolgii aristocrat. I.rt
thi'xv bo i-nllod 'imhlonicii alone. That ti
my advice to every youug American woman," -suld the Comtcsso Lorcnn dv Chit-
valine In nn Intel-view. She was formerly Miss Benson of Brooklyn, dunghtir
of Captain Henry John Benson of lhe
revenue cutter service, and speaks from
"1 want to warn American young women to shim the decadent foreigners witb
titles who try to mnny rich wives," sht
added. "It Is a matter of barter ant-
sole, 1 was an American girl, and whe i
rery young I married a Frenchman ot
title. Wheu be died, I found ninnng bis
papers n contract which be hnd made
with n person wbo was In thnt bustncNS
to Hnd bim an eligible wife with n fortune. Ue paid In Installments for the
services of the person who brought me
to his attention. Ue squandered my
money; ami my life wns unhappy.
"My experience Is typlcnl of the rotten
ness of Uie foreign aristocracy, especially
thnt of Prance. Among these impecunious nobles flourishes tho buBincus nf
high class matrimonial agents with a
quasi social standing, who, for a commission, find wives for marriageable men
of title. It js infamy, and I want to
warn the poor little American girls who
go ubrond with false notions and who
are rosily dazzled by a title against the
shame uf It.
"As tbe wife of the Count Cbavnnue 1
moved for some years in the society of
the Faubourg St. Germain. 1 know Its
little Bins nnd Its big sins. 1 know its
scandals, nud 1 knuw the private history
of many persons whose names nre spoken
with awe lu the society of New York
city. The histories of many of them will
not hear Inspection.
"When there is marriage without love,
how can you keep out scandal? High
society In France bas all too much of It.
It Is honeycombed with It. When the
poor American girl whose papa has a fnt
bank account goes to Paris, she Is flattered by attentions which sbe receives
from Mine. This and Mme. That. Mo-
dame proposes to Introduce ber to ber
own milliner, where she can secure the
very latest French gowns, Such n
thoughtful kindness touches the little
American girl, who can never know thnt
madnme gets a commission from the
milliner. She will get a commission on
the little American girl, too, if she can
manage to marry her to some gilded nobleman.
"Sham, hypocrisy, deceit and lying are
typical of French noblemen In high society. Women of title and fashion rent
their opera boxes by tbe year. A night-
comes when she does not core to go to
the opera. Mote. Somebody offers It to
some Amerknu family flattered to death
to be seen Th the titled Frenchwoman's
opera box. No, she won't accept pay,
but If the liberal Americans want to give
anything to my lady's poor fund, wby. It
will be accepted.
"When I left France, I was assured of
i flue income if I wonld only keep a
sharp watch bere for rich American heiresses Intending to go to Paris and provide tbe means for tbeir Introduction to
the proper parties In Paris."���San Francisco Argonaut.
Tkaakerar'e Taverns.
When Harry Warrington comes to
London, he puts np at tbe Bedford and
dines with Mr. Draper at the Cock. That.
estttbllHliniftnt, however, must have been
conducted on somewhat different principles In George It's reign from those
which governed It In the days of Queen
Victoria, for Mr. Draper bad ordered
what be called "nn elegant collation
there" beforehand, a thing unknown at
the Cock when tbo plump head waiter
held sway.
In Vanity Fair Dobbin and George Osborne dine at Slaughter's, In St, Martin's
lane, a house which seems In Co I man's
timo to bave been much used by Frenchmen. There he ind Mr. Chopper, Os-
homo's bend clerk, and tbe two ensigns,
Spnnncr and Stubble, bave "a famous
dinner" together before tba officers depart on the Waterloo campaign.
Wben Dobbin revisits the house after
ten years In India, John, tbe old waiter,
receives him as If bo bad only left tbe day
before and supposes he'll have a roast
fowl for his dinner. These faithful old
waiters at these old taverns regarded
regular customer* as friends and practiced much the same familiarity with tbem
as the old fasboned manservant used
with his master's family In which he had
lived perhaps half a century antl for
whom he would have died. In "Pcnden-
