anolat Affulrl,
Ottawa, Ont.. April il.���The statement of revenueand expenditure issued
by tbe finance department today shows
the revenue for the nine months of ehe'
fiscal rci-r ending March last to be
$37,918,000, or an increase of over one
million dollars as compared with the
nine months of the last fiscal yeer':
Deducting the expenditure from th-S
revenue there is a surplus of $9,21)0,000.
If the expenditure on capital aecoifrtfc
is deducted from the revenue, there is
still left a surplus of about twoinillijn
dollars.
The revenue for the month of Marclf
was less than for March, 1900, which'
shews that Hon. Mr, Fielding waa
right when he said in budget tbee
"crest of wave hnd been reached."

A _e_paich from Pekin says:���The*
ministers are considering proposal*
submittcjl by financial ox parts for toe
raising of a sufficient mini for the payment ofthe Chineaeindemnity, It!*
probable that some arrangement ftilf
be arrived at en tbe basis of the scheme'
of Sir Robert Hurt, director of the Imperial maritime customs, which prtr-
v ides for the handing ofthe .salt and
likin taxes over to the maritime customs administration and the levying
of an annual house tax equal to Orttf-
half a month's rent, which, it is calculated, will provide twenty inillioi*
taelsyearly, sufficient to pay five' 1-eY
oent interest on two hundred and Afty
million taols, and clem- the whole of
the principal iu leas than forty yearsi.
Two hundred and fifty million taels ie
equivalent, roughly estimated, at ��.Vj-
000,000, but the total amount ofthe
indemnity is much more. Some of
the powers are greatly averse to Oom-'
pel ling China to contract a loan for
the payment of tlio indemnity. It it
thought tbnt the iucreHfnd cost of
raising tho money require!, in tlmt

development of China, uud it ii tbrrrf*

IA Hung Chang was against m���i iug
the convention.
Washington, April 8.-*-Allhougn no
official notico haa reached uere of the
reported departure of Prince Li Hung*
Chang from Pekin for Shangir-i/., the
officials are inclined to believe, that
Li Hung Chang is really leaving Pekin for good because the amp-itvr it-
displeased with his conduct of the
negotiations.
It was known here when Li J/un_
Chang was made one of the pence
envoys that he was pro-Russian in
sentiment, but there was no cause
for complaint on that score until the
Manchurian agreement came up. Now
it is believed by officials here that Li
has proved so earnest an advocate of
the Russian cause and has so strenuously worked for the signature of
the agreement that his own government has felt obliged to deprive him
of some of the power to further that
agreement. If this is correct it Ib be-
. llevcd that an effectual check has
been administered to Russia in her
designs upon Manchuria.

Dr. Jamea Mills, ot Guelph, moved tht adoption of tht nport. In an
excellent address, from which the following it a abort extract: '. '���
At a melting ot tbit nature It Is always a pleuure to bt In a. portion to congratulate those interested, and on this occasion I can do so
mott heartily.
We have really a most satlslaetory itatement to present to the shareholders and policyholders ot the Company, a statement Which* will bear
the closest' inspection. Wt can speak with mon deAnittaeat than ever In

to that agalni I wonld, however, reler to one othet point : > The quia-'
tion ol our progress during a* longer period, 1894 to 1900, being that cf
the present management.
Alter a lapse ol six years we and.many points which are alike creditable to the management and gratifying to the persons most Interested In
the success ot the Company, the shareholders and policy-holders.

if any company can show such a record of- Invested assets ol over $2;*

In ntw computet the expense ratio it always large. Then expenses

was the large proportion of wer

over $16,000,000, whlle.tlie cash income from premiums and interest,
has Increased from $896, _S8 in 1894
to $66*3,ti7 . Hal 1900. During ilio

A careful review of the company's
business for the past six yt*i*s w��f,
made by Prof. Ih*. James Mills, fn
which he showed that, whiU In 3894
the assets of the company amounttd
to $821,821, they now have roacjitd
the large figures of. $2,279,170. As
an Indication ot their excellent character, only some $500 of overdue it*-
terest existed on the 81st December
In respect of the whole of them. Thi)
expenses for several years past .Suva
shown a gradual decrease, and fu
1900 the chairman stated'that tlm
ratio of expenses waa about 14 per
cent, less than it was two years agti.
In every important particular, as
pointed out by Hr. ft. L: Fatter-son,
it Is shown that h, the past year
marked advances were made in all
those essentials which tend toward
the building up of a sound and
healthy institution. The cash income increased by over $84,000; the
assets by over $469,000; the policy
reserve by over $828,000; surplus on
policyholders' account by over $889,-
000; and the insurance in force by
over $1,000,000. These are handsome increases, and speak abundantly of the managerial conduct of the
company's' affairs by Mr. J. F. -luh-
kln, its managing" director.
The important step taken by the
Manufacturers and the Temperance
and General, la deciding to unite
thoir interests,Tla, ono,: which' will,
undoubtedly,, tend to s secure even
greater economy in administration,
and consequently increased benefits te
the policyholders,- and. In view of
the thorough Investigation made by
the, independent authority into1��tha
affairs of both companies, it Is con-
fldently bellevwl. that even c-reater

Ths Restoration to Health of Wm.
Doaff Who Had Not Left His Room
In Years.���Rhtun.iMi.tm of tht Worst
KW Compltttiy Caml.
v(8uabridcs Echo.)
The Echo has taken the trouble to.
Investigate the circumstances andean
vouch for the truth of the following
interesting story in its every particular. . ��� ��� ��� . y
Almost everyone in this neighborhood knows Mr. Wm. Doeg. In 1878
Mr. poeg moved from the Township
of Osprey, in Grey County, to lot 19
in the thirteenth concession of Strong
Township. He has since made many
friends, and all who know him speak
of him in tho highest -terms.
Some time after he came to this
part h�� was .stricken with rheumatism. It gradually grew worse and
worse till for the last four years he
has been a confirmed invalid, and as
a consequence has not been seen to
tpwn at aU. He has sat night and
day In hfs chair, unable to move or
walk a step for months. The pain
never left bim. It commenced in his
back, and the torture he had to bear
was).terrible. From his back it would
'sometimes move to other parts of hiB
body, wis knees were fearfully painful at times- Tbe truth is, that for
four long years the poor man did not
have a single moment's respite from
the racking of this dreadful disease.
Mr. Doeg says: "It makes me
shudder to look back upon that awful four years. Even the thought of
it is dreadful. How I ever lived
through it I do not know, but I
thank God that he has at last restored me to health and strength with
nothing of the rheumatism left but
the memory of it."
Mr. Doeg is a changed mnn. Hale
and hearty he now enjoys every mo-
inent of. his new .Ufa to. the full.
How did the change come about ?
Thi* Is the question which Mr.Do?g
Is most delighted to answer. He had
tried the treatment of several physicians and bad used almost every medicine known as a cure for rheumatism, but he got no relief.
"I gave them all a fair chance,
too," said Mr. Doeg to The Echo,
"but nothing teemed able to give me
even temporary relief, I grew despondent and despaired of ever leaving that dreadful pain behind me.
"One day I read lo a newspaper
the testimonials of some who said
they had been cured of rheumatism
by Dodd's Kidney Fills. I hadn't
much faith In anything by this time,
but I sent for one box of the pills
and commenced. I noticed an improvement and kept on, and look at
me now."
Mr. Doeg certainly doesn't look
like an invalid now, and it ie hard
for one who bad not seen him In hia
sick room to believe that six months
ago he couldn't walk.
"Have you any objection to making antl signing a written statemtmt
of the whole thing for publication in
The Echo ?" was asked Mr. Doeg.
"None whatever. I will be glad to
do bo, for I want every person Buffering as I waa with rheumatism to
know that Dodd's Kidney Pills will
cure them, and I do hope that my
statement will be read by all such
unfortunates.
This is Mr. Doeg's written statement :���
For four years I suffered excruciating torture, during which time I was
scarcely an hour free from pain. The
trouble commenced in my back,
where it often remained stationary
for months, and so Intense was the
pain that I could not lie down or
take rest, but had to sit night and
day in a chair. The pain would then
remove to other parts of my body
and when in my knees I was unable
to Walk, and confined constantly to
my room. I waa treated for rheum i-
tlsm by several- doctors and also
tried many medicines without receiving any beneflt. Almost la despair I
feared I would never again experience the pleasure ,of being free from
pain.
Last spring my attention was directed to some, remarkable cures of
rheumatism effected by Dodd'*/.Kidney 1 Pi Is, recorded In the public
prints. I procured a box, and soon
found that they were doing mo good,
so I kept on,"till how I can say 1
am a new man entirely free from
pain, and have continued eo for over
six months, being able to attend to
my dally duties oh the farm and feel
strong and able for work.
I verily, believe this great clwnge
hu been effected by the use of Dodd's
Kidney PUIs, and I think It my duty
to make this statement public for the
-benefit of any one afflicted as I was.
Wm. Doeg, Sunbrtdge.
This is a plain, unvarnished statement of fact aa we have found It,
and every reader of The Boho, especially those who know bow bad Mr.
Doeg was, Wi)) Agree that lt ts a case
without parallel, in the history of
the community.

They will be loaded down to 14 feet
