Vancouver, Sept. 28.—W. W. B.
Mclnnes, iu closing his address at a
rally of thu Liberal party in thsir
committee rooms in Hastibgs street
on* Saturday evening said the following of tho lato Judge Cane:
'1 do think it is fitting that before closing I should suy a few
words by way of tribute to our old
friend Judge Cane, who has been
called from us so suddenly. We recall him as an old comrade in many
a political fight. To me he was particularly dear. I knew him years ago
in Nunaimo whoro ho was my warmest friend, and it was to Judge Cana
more than anyone else that I owed
my first entrance into public life
in Canada. In him we saw one of the
best types of a largo-hearted and
fair-minded mini. Ho was a hard
fighter beforo ho was elevated to the
bench, but ho was always a fair
fighter. During the two years that
he wus on the beuch his career was
one that any judgo iu Canada might
envy. Always of a fair disposition,
hc brought to his decisions a calm
and judicial mind. W© have a right
to refer to him as a splendid torpe
of good citizenship, and when we
think of his sudden call, when we
see theso things upon us and the
leaves of liie fulling fast about us,

KIOTO, Japan. Sept. 29— Postponement of government undertakings involving the expenditure of
8100,000,000 In accordance with ths
pol^y receotly announced by Premier Kntsurn does not mean that
the government has censed activity
in this direction. It is authoritatively stated that the fundamental
principle of the postponement consists in so arranging the funds for
tho projected enterprises that thsy.
may bo carried out without i*-'
tronchmont but deferring their completion three or four years.
In recent years there has developed a considerable growth of the annual' surplus which It Is expects* the
government will hereafter utlllss In
development of a peaceful character.

This is the part of the Mr. Mohun's using such a word. But, even if
work which will have most interest he had, wo don't soo why such spce-

Mr. Martin," said Mr, Mclnnes,
"has betrayed the great principles he
fought for in Manitoba. Seven years
ago at Victoria, he threw them to
rhe winds when he accepted a campaign subscription of $2,500 from
the Whito Pass and Yukon railway,
and turned' a- deaf ear to the clamors of-the people of the north, who
wanted railway competition as Uie
result of the exorbitant freight and
passenger rotes, and at a period
when a syndicate was prepared t*o
build a  competing road.
"But this deal falls into insignificance compared" with the other deal
Jn which.Mr. Martin was the prime
.actor, .1 am prepared to prove on
Ithe public platform that In the
had to borrow $25,000. Side by
Bide with this buoyancy of tone and
spirit exists Uie deep-seated conviction of the necessity of a system of
sewerage. Phore were many who
even went so far as to oppose tho
electric light question on tho ground
that a system of sewerage was the
greater necessity of the two, and
ought to have come first. Now that
the Council has completed the preliminaries and is .ready to, proceed,
the by-law should'be gon'erully endorsed by the citizens.
It may be that the work of instal-
ing the two systems of light and
sewerage will be proceeded with simultaneously. For 'some reason .or
other Mr. Marpole, the managing
head of the western section of the
Canadian Pacilic Railway, has not
been able to pay ids promised visit
to Ladysmith.    Meantime, the coun-
some mistake. several of the senior
pluyers. down there woro not regis-
torod in time, and substitutes had
to bo sought at the last uiomont.
Tho g-uio therefore wus hardly. up
to the standard" which' one expects
from tho nieotin# of representative
olo^ons. Thoro'woro bright spells to
tho 'game; but for tho most, part tho
display was ragged and uneven.
The ground had something to do
with this. Tho game was played in
the Royal' Athletic. Park, which has
the.'advantage of being closo into,
town.,, The, .field Is also fairly level
and can be made Into a splendid
pitch; but as' it is now-tho surface

Tho first thing that has- to bo said

Since the beginning of the epidemic
there havo been 15,583 cases ot Asiatic cholera reported In Russia and
7,102 deaths. In St. Petersburg a-
lone, sinco the presence of the disease was officially admitted there
have been 4,931 cases and 1,875
deaths reported. Ths figures with
reference to the invasion Of ths city
by the disease oannot be relied upon,
as upon a number of occasions private but trustworthy statistics have
showed the number ol coses and

excess of that announced by ths authorities.
The ellorts ol Premier Stolypin and

Canadian Pacific by fifty miHion dollars. . .
It may be taken as an official fact
beyond question that at various times in the lust two years negotiations
have been curried on loo'dng to tho
purchase.by tlie Canadian Pacific of
the White Pass railway, extending
rom Skagway to White Hurso. Fivo
weeks ago William' Whyto, second
vice-president and general manager
Ofthe western lines of the C.P.R..
camo west to make an inspection of
the White Pass line. Ho conferred
at Skagway with S. H. Greaves, the
president of the White Pass and the
representative of the English bondholders of the line. Mr. Whyte's
visit was of special significance becauso ho mado it at a time whon
the western divisions of tho rond Immediately under his control were ln
tho throes of the mechanics' strike.
Up to three months ago tho terms
oflered by the Canadian Pacific to
the Whito Pass were not accented,
but Vancouver transportation men
havo it figured out now that the
English syndicate ls willing to take
up tho olfer and that thoir announcement may come any day.
The Guggcahelms own a large
bloek of stock in the northern company; but the bulk of their heavy
freight for Klondike dredges.and mining apparatus has already been moved in and tho question of controlling
freight rates will not be a very particular one with the mining company
in years to come. Against that,
there is the faet that 'profit-malting
business with the Canadian Yul,on is
not growing and'for"that reason
nlono there is an incentive! to1 allow
some other concern to'tnke the chances in the future.
One of tho objects of the Canadian
Pacific in gaining possession of the
Whito Pass line is undoubtedly that
of owning the key to the northern
transportation situation. .. Ever
since the northern line was built, its
owners have been able to absolutely
dictate terms and conditions and
really to, adjust profits qr losses for
the steamship ' companies operating
betweon Skagway' on the north and
Seattle and Vancouver on the south.
With tlio White' Pass line in its possession,' the Canadian line is figuring
on having every steamship compony
a!nd every railway, for that mnttor,
under its thumb in tho handling of
freight into the Yukon and Alaska.
The Canadian Pacific.wljl then be
able to carry freight and passongers
on its own sieiiiners and trains all
ihe way from London to Daweon
and back.' This will be possible il
tho deal now ponding is comploted.
