THE DEAD DUKE.
In the death of the Duke of Devonshire another    notable iigure belong,
ing to the group of the later    Victorian statesmen has beon. removed.
The Duke learned Jus politics .  with
Gladstone,     but could   never follow
his fiery     loader in all his political
excursions.        A definite   and   final
parting    took place    over the Irish
question.     The Duke, together with
Chamberlain, put himself at, the head
of the Liberal Uniunist group,    and
formed a  natural alliance with   the
Conservatives.       He   was   able to
work on harmonious lines, first with
Salisbury and   afterwards witli Balfour, by both of whom he was fully
trusted, and his great merits     and
abiUties acknowledged and rewarded.
The tariff reform propaganda, initiated by   Chamberlain brought a  further split into    the Unionist ranks.
Chamberlain has certainly a   unique
political     record,     He first of    all
smashed up the Liberal party,   next
he turned     loose from his Unionist
triends, and whon his present illness
overtook biiu was again busy ln the
congenial task of shattering the Conservative     cause.     Surely no leader
was ever moro scurvily served,     his
Influence so steadily discredited,   liis
power and authority so continuously assailed, by a   lieutenant as was
Balfour     by Chamberlain.    In    the
case of     the Duke political Ingratitude    wus nover    blacker.     Ho announced his antagonism to the Cham,
berlnin proposals, but when tho party was     called together he     found
that the astute Joseph had got hold
of the machinery and thero was nothing for him to do but to mako his
exit with what grace and dignity he
could summon to his command.
The Duke was nover a very striking political figure. Ponderous In
speech and cumbrous in his movements, he had never an clement of
populnrlty In his composition. His
speeches wero dreary verbal wastes,
delivered rather with nn air of boredom than of animation. Indeed ho

THE JAPANESE CHINESE QUESTION,
TOKIO, Mar. 2a.-Forcign Minister
Haiashi made a statemont today in
the Diet in reference to the Tatsu
incident. He related the history of
the case, as has already been published and said that the record had
not yet boen received at the foreign
ofllco. He wished to say emphatic,
ally that the Chinese central government had shown a friendly attitude
to Japan's desire for the continuation of the friendly relations between
the two countries.
Regarding the seizure of the Japanese iishlng vessel the Kalo Maro
near St. Paul Islands by"tho United
States government, Mr. Hnlnshl said
that negotiations were pending and
it was [premature to make an official
statement.
In tho mnttor ot the Kantao boundary tho minister of foreign affairs
said that this was an old dispute
between Korea and China, and that
It will probably Involve lengthy negotiations. In fact tho boundary
had not even been fixed.
Regarding tho forcible seizure oi
the Tien Poshan mine, near Kantao
by Chinese* troops, Minister Haiashi
said that this mnttor was included
in the Kan tan negotiations and that
whon tho boundnry wis fixed tho
mino question would be considered.
Regarding the- anti-Japaneso foel-
ing hy tho central government ol
China, bo said bo was unable to discover the slightest evidence of unfriendliness. China Is a vast country with mlljlons of people of whom
a portion wns probably anti-Japanese, but thnt lt was Impossible to
influence the entire population. It
Is beyond the scope of tho Japanese
foreign ofllco to reach nil sections of
China and It will take time to provo
to the unlvorsnl satisfaction the
good'Intenl Inns toward hor notgh-
bor.
The Diet will he prorogated tonight to meot In door when.tho general elections which commence * in
May.

A MV'STEblY SOLVED.
The Imperial Pulp Company, which
has 304,000 acres of selected western timber lands, has at last been
hunted down. It is the only concern which obtained limits in competition with T. A. Burrows, M.P.,
(brother-in-law to Mr. Sifton)), who
has 306,000 acres. Some times the
only competition was between these
two. Whore there were outside bidders, ons of the happy pair came
out ahead. True, A. W. Fraser and
W. H. Nolan obtained awards, but
they are found to be bidders for the
Imperial Company. The company
and Burrows had the same remarkable method.! ol business. Both
spurned the regular form of tender,
both bid without naming the amount
of their offer, both enclosed two or
more checks with each bid. In thts
wa; the sum of ' their checks was
Just a little higher than the next
Independent bid, while single checks
would have captured tho limit from
some lower bidder.
There was a . desire to know who
comprised this fortunate company
The minister who sold its millians'
worth of timber .would not toll. Mr.
Turriff, Mr. Burrows, Mr. Sifton,
could throw no light on the mystery. It waa only when a banker
was summoned to tell who paid the
checks that ths truth cams out.
Then Mr. MacDonald, chief obstructionist for ths defence, had A. W
Eraser called, and brought out tbs
fact that tbe Imperial Pulp Company
was no other than Mr. Burrows himself, associated with a former political associate, now lieutenant-governor of Manitoba. It was Burrows
who fixed the Imperial Company's
bids in pretended competition with
his own. It was he who arranged
the remarkable system ol checks and
who paid them. He managed the
company. So now it Is clear how
these two concerns followed the same
system, and why they gave each other a chance to win, but got ahead
of everybody else.      ..'„■-
That Solitary Conservative.
One exceptional case must be not
ed. " A valuable limit north ol Prince
Albert was awarded to Mr. Cowan,
a local lumberman. This case was
cited by Mr. Oliver and several other members to prove that the department was impartial. They said
that Mr.* Cowan was a Conservative, and yet got the limit because
ho was the .highest bidder. Mr
Fraser, cross-examined, explained
this deal. It was Mr. Fraser who
put In tbs tender in Cowan's nana,
Hs did lt aa solicitor for Mr. Burrows. Mr. BurrowB fixed the a
mount and paid the check. If Mr.
Cowan had anything to do with it,
he had to como tn on Mr. Burrow1
terms.
A Conservative Henceforth.
Three years ago the people of the
Yukon, by a large majority, condemned the government machine in
that district, and elected Dr. Thompson as an independent, opponent of
the vicious ruling element.
Dr. Thompson liromlssd to keep
clear cf party ties at'Ottawa, and
to give his whole attention to' the
rescue of the Yukon from the hands
of tho spoiler. He has carried out
that pledge, neither speaking nor
voting on party questions, attending no party gatherings, but working steadily for honest Yukon gov
ernment.     Friday night hs left Ot
•Bough in parliament to leant that
the evils ia the Vukon are part of a'
general system, and tbat the vicious
machine, which be came here to de-|
stroy, is simply an attachment to a
greater and equally vicious machine
operated from the national capital.
NOTES.
The post olllce department hss repaid ta Canadian newspapers $26,-
000, collected by the government under Mr. Lomieux's boasted postal reform scheme, which the minister was
compelled to abandon, Of this a-
mount $20,653, went to La Urease,
of Montreal.
While charities in Canadian cities
aro collecting money for families of
unemployed immigrants, the government goes on paying bonuses fo ti
per head on Europeans brought to
ithls country. In five and a half
years bonuses have boon paid on
175,000 persons, including children
ut half price. The country would
have been better off had no immigrants come except' those who require no bonus. (
Mr. Sifton made an unexpected address on tho budget. The ox-mlnls-
tcr took occasion to advise ths government to establish a now department of foreign trade, thus declaring
Sir Richard Cartwrlght's department
of trade and commerce to be useless.
Mr. Sifton also commended Mr. Borden's civil service reform platform,
nnd advised Sir Wilfrid to adopt It.
