1W0 In the Colonics honr only a faint
echo of the storm which has been raised
by the latest imposition of the present
British Government, the tax nn thread.
■No blunder which that govermnout has
committed since it look ofilco somo years
ago has so profound!] stirred tho British
people aa this Infest orto of taxing the
bread of the people.
Already the iniitleriug.s of Iho coming
storm which is lo hurl tho Salisbury ministry and the party ihey represent from
power, are heard, and all who wish for
the security of the Empire will hope that
it will be many 11 long year before that
party, which has exposed the British
Empire to tbe bitterest humiliations ami
•disgrace thai, it over endured, is over
again entrusted with tho power it line b.)
shamefully misused.
Under a Tory administration British
people have, for the first time in hundreds
of years, been forced to hang their heads
in shame for ihe follies of their government; nnd now cornea nn enactment
which ia bound to add liorce popular
linger to the scorn and contempt with
which the government has covered itself.
The people of the United Kingdom real*
i-iti that the newly Imposed tax on foodstuffs Is .simply another blow al tho poor,
"Every British mother knows that the
Tory government has levied 11 apodal tax
on her children's food; for it ds uot flour
only that is to he taxed, hut articles of
necessity in every nursery—sn go, tapioca,
rieemenl, groats, oatmeal and macaroni,
The poorer the household ihe greater the
proportionate consumption of broad.
Nine moulhfults out of every ten in the
poor muu's household will ho taxed* one
out of every tcu In (lie rich man's.
.Verily, "To liiiii Hint hath" tilie landlord) "shall more" (tlio amount ol' tho
tax) "be given; but from him thnt hath
not" (the poor) "shall bo taken away
■ even that which ho soomotli to have"
(the cheap loaf).
' Sir Michael Hicks-Beach says this tax
iWlll l>rovo a remedy for waste. Itm Mr,
ltowntree has shown that -7 per cent, uf
the population of a prospermia English
provincial town never have enough food
na It ia. How, then, can this lux he .1
remedy for waste, where there cannot ho
any waste?
Truly, truly, every BritiBh workman
who cast his ballot for a Tory candidate
nt the laet cloctlou has his rownrd.
When will the British workman lorrii

Ladysmith people now have their op*
portunlly. IF tbey inn it wleely they
can make a great ii fluenllal centre here;
but nothing at all ciiii be* achieved without bard woik, confidence and harmoniously working together, • The prospaolu
of Lady smith neverl-ioked brighter than
they do to-day.

great ease iu the mutch ou the Caledonian grounds on Saturday afternoon, In a

been the case for some years back, and
should be strong rivals for the ehampiou-

To-morrow evening promMly at 8
o'clock a meeting of the General Committee In charge of the arrangements
for the celebration of Dominion Day in
Ladysmith will be held in Gould's hall.
It is reported that owing to a certain

very successful celebration are much improved.
Our stock is now complete in fancy

Summer draws nigh, having taken
lessons in the art for some aeons back,
and Caldwell, another artist in decking
out the human form, (divine or lay),
has a selection of summer suitings un
equalled in this province.

Mr. aud Mrs. Shouldice have received
from their many Mends in Ladysmith a
grt-nt number of very handsome presents
along with tl e very best wishes for their
happiness and prosperity, in which The
Leader heartily joins.
Not many men can afford to throw
awny thirty dollars on an ill-fitting suit
of clothes. The ordinary man wants fit,
material, stylo and value for his money
when he clothes himself. Caldwell, of
Nanaimo, was never known to disappoint a customer. Get him to build tbat
Buityou want bo badly.

This sudden briskness in business has

who have beeu keeping their eyes opsn.
Tbe Leader baa been savagely criticised
day after day by local .cynics for publishing statement, thit 'Ladysmith was
all right, and that ita day was fast approaching, if ths people would only have
patience. Every time Th. Leader printed any statement, always on tha best
authority, that some Improvement or
other waa going to be made, these loudmouthed critics of th. corner snd the
hotel store would bitterly denounce tbe
