In full the evid-.no taken before the
Chinese Commission n*nv in session on
tbe coast, bnt she following will give
our readers a fair insight into tliecl'&r-
acter of the evidence now being taken.
The first witness, Mr. James Grant,
of Tlioinns&Gi-niit, merchant tailors,
gave a statement of conditions ten years
ago, when the union of tailors had 1.10
members, 00 of whom were mon and
40 were womon. Ho gave an ostimato
o, vearly earnings then ns $75,200 per
men at'sJIS per week, nnd $!l..,00G for
the women af $10 per week. Apprenticeship for whito taliai? averaged from
four to seven years.
At ;thnt time thero w��ro ,18 tailor
shops. There was then in the city n
Chinaman, Wah Hopo, mnnuiVcturer.
for wholesale houses. About 1801 lie
commenced making clothing to men*
sure, partially for wholesale trade and
partially for retail customers, employing fonr hands. He was then the only
Chinese in the business. On March
18tb, Wednesday of last week, there
had been mnde a count of white journeymen tailors employed in the city.
The total was 21. They also counted
tbe tailores.ses, wbo numbered 30.
This did not include manufacturers. I.
The mon now e'njj^ged in the,trad.
average about 12 dollars per week and
the women about six dollars per week.
Twenty-one men at 12 dol. wonld earn
$13,104 per year, 30 tniloresses at $6
per week would oarn 9,3G0doI. per year
or 22,464 dol. total gross earnings.
Leaving out increaso of pcpulaion this
shows a decrease of 54 men and 45
women, which would mean a loss of
population averaging 3 per head of 297
people. The decrease in wages paid
wai 86,730 dol. per year. At the present time the,statement of Chinese employed was limited for the evidence
yesterday showed the difficulty cf getting a correct number employed on account of the objection to paying taxes.
He gave a list showing a total of 54
Chinese employed in tailoring.
ceiving and those whom Ihey wero
paying 51.00 pel! dozen, could make
40c. On every other article manufactured tho experience was the same,
commencing nt the price tijer. paid the
Chinese, tiie jn-ico went down until

yiiic-c then wages had slcclincd until
nc''.* JOy tho piece journeymen could
now m.MtsVahout 15 dol. per week, W
he cannot gei eteiuly work, became of
lack ol patronage to white tailors.
Work sent out by the ;-'ece was paid
for in 1S91 mnch higher i^gn now.
There wns a falling oil in ])ri*?saf25
per cent, and over. Chinese hnd cctrm
to his shop offering to make coals for
$4. The price to whtte labor started
at 10. Whilo. prices had come down
in Victoria, Nanaimo, and Seattle
maintain the old prices. He did nqt
know of any Chinese tailors employed
in Nanaimo. Thero wero some in
i*3e-iltie but not to the same extent a.
Tii* C.P.R. Annonncoi a Material Re-
'oaoAon After April lit..
On the first of April the local passenger rates on tho Pacific division of
tbe C.P.R. will be reduced 20 per cent.
This was tbe anouncement made of.
Tuesday by E. J. Coyle, assistant .gen-
e:al passenger aren't. _
Witb this reduction in local rates
there will bo placed on sale local round
trip tickets at a still further reduction.
Commercial travellers' rates will be
reduced to three cents a mile, including
tbe Kootenay lines and the Kootenay
As is generally known passenger
rates on the Pacific division of the
C. P. H. have been greater tban upon
the lines in Manitoba -ind the east. Ot
course this is attributed in great mo!-
mre to the increased cost necessary tb
maintain lines running through tfie
mountains. Repairs to mountain divisions on all transcontinental roads aro
greater, winter and summer, than upon
those portions of tbe line passing
through prairie country or nearly level.
Witness went on to say that the n.nk-Tl,i8tri<*t'*'   ��"d moreover there   it  no
ing of clothes co.t about the .^ ��,, Jcts.at.on to th.s repa.r.ng-it it ens'-
round among the white tailors,  the!      '
For yenm past
average being 9 dol. to 15 dol. per suit.
The Chinese rate was much lower, lie
would produce witness later to give
details as to cost ol Chinese work. As
to hours of work the white tailors
worked 9 hours per slay and 6 days

.he passeugor rates
.from Medicine Hnt west to LnggaA
have beon based upon * tariff of four
cents per por mile. The decision to
reduce 20 per cent, means that fares
from Medicino Hnt to the coast will
now rest upon a basis of four cents peV

a yalley all the way without any di*
vidos, The trail could be made much
straighte'r by tbe -judicious expenditure
of a small sum of money, and the government would be well advised in
making an appropriation for this purpose'.
This route abound, with good pasturage, mora particularly at Goat River,
where peavine ia available .11 the year
round. At Pack Saddle there is considerable agricultural land, all kinds of
garden vegetables growing with a luxuriance that could hardly be equalled
In mora southern climes. Mr. Halliday with two others made the trip
from a point IS miles above Tete Jeaune
Cacht In 9 days withont mishap or
jncldtnt worthy of note. No more
favorable route for a railway to the
Tukon tr enn to Behrlng Straits could
bt found In a mountainous country, as
thert i. a natural highway and abroad
���alley extending all the way.
To Illustrate the feasibility ol this
route, mention ia made that Jack-Evan.

that white merchants tailors sent work

come forward to try for the reward.
He would bring evidenca later to prove
that Chinoso spread thn rumor with
the ovidont intent to throw tho insinuation that people might as woll buy
direct from the Chinese if Chinese were
going to do tho work.
Witness snid thnt tho mei-clia.it tai

if thoy bad no Chinese competition.
As to tho wholesale trade he snid
thero wero two wholesale firms in the
city who allowed c.rto.ners to select
oloth for a suit and then the work was
given to Chineso to mak's up. He
woulsl brlnjf a, witnsiss who when cnt
of work once had applied to a wholesale houso In tho city and was told he
oculdn't work for tho rato they wore

would bo glad to try, bot when tho

Witness thou dulailod the experience
of his linn in wholesale manufacturing.
They pnt In expensive machinery and
made contracts with the wholesale
houses, end at rates at which tbey
could make money . and thai was tbe
rate the Chineso bad been getting,
They wero also told that they would
have preference over the Chineso. They
got paid In ba.K also while the Chinese
had taken trade. They at first got
fli.fsO per dozen fpr ready-made pant.,
and ths Chinese then offered to do work
at io 60. Witness' firm was offered
the preference at that rate and in tbe
end it came down to (4.60 per doxen,
at which rale they could not compete,
and in the end .went out of business.
The employers were not skilled tailor,
and tniloresses. They wore all white

From the Mirror, Meaford, ont.
No man in Meaford is better known
or more highly respected thnn Mr.
Patrick Delaney, who hiw been a resident of the town for nearly forty
years. Mr. Delaney ie e stone mason
by trade, and has helped to construct
many of the buildings which go to
make up Meaford s chief business
ulructures. Hearing thgt ho had received great benefit from the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs, a reporter
of tho Mirror called to obtain particulars of the euro, and Mr. Delaney
Cheerfully gave him the following
statement : "Last March," said he,
"my health became so poor (hat I
was compelled to quit work. Tho
chief symptoms of my illness were
extreme weakness in the lips, loss of
appetite, and palpitation of the
beart. The least exertion would
cause mu heart to palpitate violently, and if I stooped to pick up anything I would be overcome with dizziness. My legs were so weak that
I was compelled to sit down to put
my clothes on. The doctor I consulted said I had a bad case of anaemia. He prescribed for me and I
took three botles of medicine, but all
the while I actually prow worse un-
tlll I became so weak and emaciated
that it -seemed impossible that I
could recover. Having read of the
cures effected by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills I determined to give them a
trial. From the first box I noted an
improvement in my conditiim. My
legs became stronger, my appetite
improved, and by the time I had
used four boxes I felt better than I
had done for months. That the
pills are a wonderful remedy there Is
not the least doubt. I, can do light
work about home without experiencing any of the unpleasant sensations
that I onco underwent. I feel nn altogether different man despite the
fact that I am now sixty-seven years
of age. All 1 can say i�� that T attribute my present good health to Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and I would advise any other similar sufferer to try

WITHOUT dos.ht the most import
an. bill brought down so (ar
this seasion, in the Provincial Legis*
lasstre is the new Education Bill. The
Scl.tol Act has stood since 1801 with
v,'i-y few changfsa-tlsos. in 18117 being
she principal. Last rear the Sumliu-
Cntson governmeut brought in ��n
Fi-tnoiliou Bill but lho Bill wna never
properly discussed In th. Logi.latur..
Tls.se in little doubt but that the preaent Bill is a remodel and both are on
ila-sliding scale of grants p.r capita.
Publio attention is drawn particularly towards the Bill introduced by
tliu minUerot Education this year,
train the simple laot tln'tln connection
with the proposed amendments to the
S.hool Act, there is another Bill to Ise
lnouubt down increasing tin poll-tax
duin til '<>�����>���
Aocordis.g to tl.e Bill, City 8chool
districts are to be divisled iuto three
Those of Ilio first class include all
incorporated cities and towns wherein
tlie average actual daily attendance
equals or exceeds 1,000 lor the sohool
- ,-ar. The cities of Vancouver and
Victoria ui-o the only cities included
under thin class.
Those of the second class include all
incorporated cities and towns wherein
tlio average actual daily attendance
equals or exceed. 250 for th. school
sear. Tho cities ol Nanaimo, Nelson,
New Westminister and Rossland are
included In this class.
Those ol the third class Include .11
incorporated cities and towns where
she average actual daily attendance
lull, below 250 for the school year.
The cities ol Columbia, Cumberland,
Gi.url Forks, Greenwood, Kamloops
K.sslo, Piiawix, Revelstoke, Sandon,
Vernon, and the town of Wellington
belong to this class,
It is intended if thn Bill passes, to
give the cities a larger per capita tax.
A per capita grant of 113 is :o be givon
lo cities of the lirst class, 115 to those
ol the second class, nud 120 to those
ol the third class.
And iu cities in which aHigh School
exists provision is made in tho Bill
that t'MO shall bo paid at the end ol
June eacls your to the municipal corporations, lor each teacher omplojcd.
T .,ov ara new sections in Ihe Bill
dealing wilh the number of t.ustees in
each class of city schools. In the
schools of she Hist class there are to be
novels trustees, all eleoted annually; in
'Iso second class, live trustees, three
and tsvo cl.c'el, alternately, snd in
tlie third class, three trustees, oue and
two elected alternately.
In rural schswl districts one trustee
is elected annually as heretofore, without oven a property qualification of
$500 as is required in some of th.
Accenting to I he new Bill teacher's
certifis-aies are divisled is to (our classes;
Third Clnas, valid (or three years,
hut no |.erson shall be allowed to renew
i third class certificate. Second class,
valid for lite. First 'doss, valid (or
life. Academic, valid (or life. Tl.ess
certificates are granted only lo applicants who l.anp... to be gradssatesol
tbs Provincial Normal Sohool, or o(
other Normal School, approved by th.
Council of Public Instruction, .xcept
that a period of tan yen" ol active
service iu the public school, of the
provirce ��h��ll bo deemed equivalent to
graduation from lho Normal School.
Tbo appointment of Clly Ssipcrlnlen-
come incorporated the taxation for
school purposes would be heavy. For
example, were Oolden now an incorporated town, instead ot receiving a
grant (rom the Government (or a new
aohool, the people would be taxed (or
tho extra amount required (or sohool
purposes. Proper school buildings Ior
the town would cost in the neighbor
hood of $4,500. Similar difficulties
are to be the experience of small in-
cot poratud cities, when this act comes
in force. Unbar the provisions of the
Bill a school, the average daily attendance at which does not equal 1,000 is
to receive $15 per capita. According
to this a school with an average atten
diti.ee ol 0911 children would receive a
grant of $14,985. Should tlie attendance Increase to 1,000 children-only
ono pupil more - the grant would then
bo $111 per capita, and tho grant would
be $1,800���a loss of $1,985, or about
13 per cent; or we take the third ol...
of schools, 249 pupils at $10 per capita
would give 4,980 dol,, while 250
pupil, at 15 dol., per oaplta would
give $3,750, s loa. ot 1,230 dol.
or nearly 26 per cent. This is certainly
a very serious matter In a small in
oorporated oily. Iu the latter case not
until thu school attendance increased
82 pupil, more would ths grant be the
same as with 249 pupils. It would
also require two more salaried teachers
to attend to these extra pupils.
By another schemo of the new Bill
"every child within the age limits
shall attend school dnring the regular
school hours every schuol day." Heretofore pupil, were only compelled to
attend school (or six mouths in Ihe
year. As will be seen here arises other
possible difficulties effecting the per
capita tax.
All young uachers of th. province
have to attend the Provincial Normal
School unless they have taught 'for
ten years In the province, or bave re-
ceived Normal training at some other;
Normal School, approved by the Council of Publio Instruction, in one of the
older provinces. No teacher \- ho re
eelves Normal training nnd teaches for
three year, on a Third Class certificate
will be allowed to again teach unless
a higher certificate Is obtained. This
will undoubtedly raise the standing
of the teaching profession, but will the
teachers take a particular liking to
this proposed amendment in the new
Bill. A teacher without Normal School
training elsewhere who haa taught for
nine years in this province, and hia
certificate expires, has to attend the
Normal School at Vancouver botore be
in obtain another certificate.

Mr. Fielding's Annual Flanclnl Slot.-
ment���Big Sssrplu. I*rosnl.ed for
tbe Tear.
We give below a condensed report ot
the Budget speech of Mr. Fielding in
the House ot Commous on March 14th.
Little oomment is necessary as it speaks
Ior itself.
Mr. Fielding, wbo was received with
cheers, .aid in opening: "For ssveral
years in succession, ou occasions similar to this I have had the good fortune
to be able to congratulate the house and
tbe country upon periods of great and
steadily Increasing prosperity. I re
joice to know that I am at liberty to
make a similar statement today with
respect to the affairs of Canada for the
past year. In almoat every department
of induatry In which the Canadian
people are engaged, tbere wa. a gratl
lying activity, Trade, commerce and
manufacture, flourished. Here and
there a. may always be expected In a
country ot auch vast extent and varied
intereat. as prevailed in Canada, aome
local condition wa. unfavorable, aome
drawback may have (secured, but In
summing up the affairs of the country
we are able to describe it as one of nn
exempted prosperity. Prosperity ic
trade and manufactures brought prosperity to our national finances and
enabled me at the clow cf the year to
announce results which I. not too much
to say form t he moat satisfactory financial abatement that ever fell to the lot
ot a minister of finance |o make In
the Dominion ot Canada. At a time
ot very considerable fiinancial stringency, at a time too, when our expenditure, were being oonduoled on a very
liberal scale, we found our revenue so
generoua that we were able to provide
for all onr needa without having resort
to fresh leans or even to an issu. of
treasury bill.,
"A glance at'the receipt! and expenditure! tn comparison with the previous
years will show that there is a general
increase all along 'the line. Tbe revenue
for the year (898*99 waa 46,741,249 dol
compared with 51,029,994 dol. for
1899*00, ahowlng an Increase for the
latter year ot $4,288,745. (Cheers). In
speaking of the prospect, of th. year,
in the budget apeech of la.t March I
expressed the opinion that the receipt,
for the year would paa. the $50,000,000
mark. The figures that I bava just
given will shew that thi. anticipation
wai realized. (Cheers). The receipts
ot the year have been over $51,000,000."
The minister ot finance went on to
ahow that the chief increase waa in
customs, due to tho increased imports
and to aome extent to the higher val
uea which prevailed. Tl.e increases in
th. post offices were gratifying, not.
withstanding the two cent postal rate
brought about a year or two ago. This
reform hat been fully appreciated In
the country. It, therefore, for a time
our revenue from that source fell off it
would not be altogether a cause tor re
gret,but whatCanada had under the two
cent rate was not quite so large ai it wai
under the three cent rate, but In January, 1900, ihe poatal revenue reached
898,289,dol. while in the corresponding
month ot 1898 nnder th. three cent
rate the revenue waa 338,941, Under
the head ot miscellaneous revenue.
I here waa a considerable increase, the
largest Item being In rwpect ot rail
way. showing an increa.of 828,344dol.
nnder that head. The revenue of the
Intercolonial railway In 1896 was $2,
957,644. The revenue for the la.t year
svss 4,552,071,dol.,showing an increase
ot $1,594,481. Canada'a total revenue
for laat year wa. 61,029,994 dol. Tbe
total expenditure chargeable to con.oll-
dated fund, that I. for the ordinary
purpose, of government, wa. 42,975,
180, dol, .Lowing n aurplu. ol 8,064,
714 dol.
Thi. .urplu. wai the largest that
hae ever been In the bl.tory of the
Dominion. Since 1896 Ine aurplu. aggregated 14,616,075. dol. Deducting
one deficit of 619,981 dol. for the year
1896, which waa partly under the Oon*
servatlve regime, Ihere waa a net aur<
plua for th. four year, ai batwatn Ih*
revenue and ordinary expenditure oi
the government of 114,096,144. Th*
expenditure on account uf capital account. Including publio worka, railways, railway .ub.idie. and varloui
special Item, otan unuaual nature, wu
7,468,848 dol. To thia muat be added
for railway subsid ss, Including 810,.
000 paid during that year to the Crow'e
Nest railway, 721,720; al.o a further
its-m of 1,847,028 on account of the expense, ot the South African contingent
and of lhe. Halifax garrison corps.
Then capital and apeclal expense, for
the year amounted to 9,742,183 dol,
Despite all theie large expenditure, the
public debt wu not increased but reduced to the extent of 779,689 dol.
The net debt on June 80, 1899, wai
265,273,445 dol. In only two yeare
prior to thll In lhe history of Canada
Ku a finance minister able lo announce
a decrease In the public debt.
Proceeding, Mr. Fielding .aid:
Turning now to the affair, of thi
currant fiscal year, which cloaca on
June 30 next, I find that.our revenue
up to the 10th March wu 34,942,177
customs revenue which li always an
item ot chief importance, is iubitan*
tially the same as it ws. a year ago,
and I da uot expect from thii tlm*
forward any material increase in that
Item. In railways, post offloe. and
excise we anticipate there will be iom*
lurther increase before the year cloiei.
I estimate that the total revenue tor
tl.e current year ending bn the 30th
Jnne next will be 62,750,000 dol, or in
Increas ot $1,720,000 over the revenue
of the previous year. Coming to thi
expenditure for tho current year there
was expended up to the 10th March on
consolidated fund 27,781,602 dol.
While we have an increased revenue
we havo also somo increase! In expenditure. I estimate when thi year'*
expense, nr. closed, including supplementary appropriation!, wi shall And
the expenditute chargeable to conioli
dated fund amounting to 46,400,000
dol. With animated revenue ot $52,
750,000 and a probable expenditure ol
46,400,000,1 reach the conclusion thit
at the dote ofthe pre.entyear w. ahull
be able to .bow another inrplui amounting to 6,350,C00dol. (Hear, hear),
Thi. Ij a aurplu. which may be regarded a. very eati.factory. The
capital expenditure up to the 10th of
March la.t wa. 6,399,906 dol. W*
have (till to pay conilderable lumi on
account of railway subsidies, cables,
etc, and I estimate that the total ex.
penditure chargeable to capital for the
current year will reach 10,766)000 dol.
It we deduct this front onr inrplui and
our linking fund I am of opinion Wi
will have to make acme addition! to
the capital debt. Bnt it will not exceed
1,800,000. That ia email when com*
pared with the addition! to the debt In
day! gone by. Our ndminiitration li
tour yeare old and the inorexe. to the
debt were as follow.: 1893*7, 8,041,*
168; dol. 1897-8, $2,418,803; 1898-99,
2,317,047, and in 1899-00, the delt
wa. decreased by 779,000dol. The total
increase in tour years wu 6,986,878
dol., making an average Increase for
four yeare of 1,749,000 dol. The average increase for the eighteen year.'of
Conservative rule wa. 6,663,000 dol,
Therefore deducting a decrease we find
that In the fonr yeare we have decree'
sed the public debt to the extent ot 6,-.
996,373 dol. In regard to the next
fiscal year beginning on the fint of
July next, It is too soon to make any
thing like a close estimate, fheeetl
malea we hare submitted to parliament
for that year oh consolidated fund
amount to 44,102.823 dol. and 6,296,
sMO dol. on can.til account, making ���
total of 60,398,600 dol. In addition
to considerable expenditure In the ua ial
way we would have te provide (or *
very conilderable sum tn the ihape of
Mr. Fielding next quoted figure, with
rwpect to the receipts and expenditures
in the Yukon. The royalt.ee from tk*
Yukon were ns follow!: 1898, 287,
458 dol,; 1899,676,812 dol, 1900, 730*,
771 dol, and alx monthl of-the current'
year 416,184 dol. This made the total
royalty 2,040,293 dol. Tha revenue In
Ihe .Yukon from other sources from
1896 97 totalled 4,376,673 dol. The
ordinary expenditure In the ume period
was 8,679,390 dol: The excess ol receipts on consolidated fund wu therefore 697,382 dol. Capital account �����
penditure was 688,87* dol. Thesnceei
of receipt, over ill expenditure wu
128,508 dol.
At the cloae of th* fleoal year tht
account will probably itand $2,000,000
expended for the contingent in South
Africa and $387,000 on account et th*
garrlaon at Halifax. H* waa able to
make a very satisfactory etatffntat ia
