(Montreal Witness Deport.)
Ottawa, Aug, 25.—The real business
of parliament begun yesterday, 'lhere
was unusual public Interest In tbe de
bate on the address. Tbe galleries were
crowded. Tbe 'Hoor of the bouse wus
well tilled and the new faces were so
many tbut a Btranger wandered on ibe
floor among tbe members und around
the mace with the speaker sitting in awful grandeur in the chair, without the
sergcant-iit-ui-nis diking notice of the
Mr. Mclnnes, the member for Vancouver district, one of the youngest, if
yot the youngest member in the house.
W8S entrusted with the task of milking
the motion, The mover of su.-h a motion is generally regarded us the spokes
man of the bouse, but iu this case the
speech from tho throne contained so
very little nud the programme of the
session being confined to the supplies,
tii.* utterances of the mover were devoid of that importance which usually j
attaches to them. His speech did not j
meet with universal approval even from |
bis own side, lie mude llie mistake of
confining bis remarks to tbe province I
from which be hailed. Nevertheless, he
made a vigorous speech, fairly well de- j
livcred, mil made some nil her good
points, nml nsiile from one rather unfortunate i xpresslon, might claim ta
have fairly well discharged Ids duty. '
tie took his selection us mover us a
compliment to Hritish Columbia and as
an earnest of wbut ibe governmenl Intended to do for that western cuiiul ry. u
country thnt hnd endured hardships under the Conservative policy, which had
ut one time been in the interests of tlic I
great west, but Which of lute yenrs hnd
fallen awuy from ils high Ideals. He
praised the resources of British Columbia, mineral, forest ami fisheries nml
urged the government to estnbllsh a
mint there where the precious metals
were found ia abundance. He alluded to
tbo suggestion ibui a department of
mines should be established nnd found
in it a clianucl for t! ul ranee Into the
cabinet of a representative from thai
province. He went on to urge the
rights of the province to cabinet representation in uny event, which was 1
rather peculiar line for Hie mover .if
tbe address lu tnke. lie expressed the
hope that lie house would frown on the
Importation of the hordes "f Chinese
coolies, but did not dwell on Hint subject. He pronounced the opportunities
nnd advantages nf this country in be
enormous, He went on to look nl the
matter philosophically mul look the deluge of applications received by every
member from men of culture un I education and ability for miserable positions
in tbo public service ns nu index of tbe
position tbe Conservative policy bn,!
brought the country into. This was
greeted with laughter from the Opposition. The evil of monopoly was u theme
upon which be grew eloquent nn.l
charged Ibe lute government with having aggravated it by giving nwny our
heritage of land in the West, nnd snid
that they hnd been taught tlmt even if
they bud the right in rule, they bud in.
rigid to ruin, lie olio.I the reluctance
of the Governmenl to resign after defeat as nn exhibition "f lust of power.
Whether it waa constitutional or net
it appeared to him to be must indecent,
lie defined Liberalism us meaning licit
every man w.is entitled to equal treatment nt the hands of ibe state. This
was true democracy. 'We wear,' he
said, "neither red shirts nor daggers,
but we see a condition of tioriety Hint
was becoming slniincil. nml if those
who were suffering from enforced poverty to-dny were mil relieved, that relief will be exacted iu llie streets."
This was pretty radical talk for llie
house of commons, nnl wns greeted
with "Oh, ob," from the opposition. The
people were entitled tn receive riu'hts
which were founded in justice quite ns
much ns others to receive rights purchased by dollurs. Tonehlng en tbe
Heboid question l*e exprcsed gratification
that Hie ndininislrution wns hound In
settle the matter, nnd conciliation wns
Ibe only method, He wool nn: "Thai
settlement when Bnaly reached will te
ia accordance with Hie Liberal prlnclp.
les of provincial rights, in harmony with
progressive modern thought, und will
not iu nny wuy violate tin- principle of
self-govei-Mi-e'iit in this country,' This
was tbe only really significant litter,
mice of the mover, being evidently inspired by the government and gives Ibe
keynote to the bnsis nf settlement recently negotiated at ottnwn. He made
a political attack upon tbe late government for their conduct In regard to (his
question and diluted upon lhe iniquity
of tbe Conservatives in willing lo disrupt the country for the sake of retaining olliee nud milking political capital
out of the school question. He pointed
to the campaign in North Qrey ns con- j
ducted by the Conservatives nt the present moment, nml characterized it in -in
epigram to be the ungodly use nf godly
Influences. He evoked cheers by alluding to the tendency of tbe Conservatives

beginning of the Czar's tour of Jilurope
and the advance of the Hritish expedition to the Nile, huve provided columns
of interesting news daily. The Zanzibar incident ami the Constantinople
miusnercs came up like a couple of
tornadoes. The Britain press is unanimous in expressing the opinion that the
attack upon the Ottoman bunk has
done Immeasurable hurm to the Armenian cause, and news ol fresh massacres
nf Armenians in the provinces us reprisals is hourly expected. Tbo Liberal
newspapers, however, express the gravest il,milts al be genuineness of tbo

The Single Tax Idea.
We publish the following extract
from a letter appearing in the Snn
Francisco Call, of Aug. 21st, by Geo.
\Y. Loehr on the Single Tax question:—
To the ordinary thinker it niusl
stand to reason that the more a
filing be taxed the more tendency
there is to jjjspourage it. The natural tendency of everything, animal
and vegetable, is to grow in perfect
freedom. Tin's is a divine law of
the Creator and an unanswerable
argument. By nulling an iron
pand around a young tree you retard its progress. It is a woll-
Juiown fact that the Chinese women
retard the development of their feet
by pompressjon, Even the human
pi ind, that grand faculty that distinguishes us from tht* animal and
makes the nearest approach to our
JJJ ulcer, develops in a ratio to the
amount of education it receives.
Therefore it follows that in freedom,
and iu freedom only, can anything
develop and attain its highest perfection. The prosperity of any
people is measured by llieir inlelli-
gence and their means and facilities
pi production. Therefore, to tax or
fine that which tends to prosperity
is to discourage production, and to
discourage production is lo lower
wages and to increase the price of
Commodities and the necessaries of
This is the policy the world hns
been following since time immemorial, and the only reason to-day
that political economy is being
given the attention that it is is he-
cause we have gone tp thn end of
our rope, and if wc don't retrace our
steps, we will bang ourselves.
<\'e stand on the brink of .uncivilized world; the next step westward takes us to the pagan world
that wc ran away from thousands
of yeare ago. Surely no one can be
so foolish as lo think that this world
could not support a larger population than it at present has.
T"ip cry of' pyerproduction js
sometimes raised, and yet we see
hundreds, aye, thousands, of people
Vthose hunger and wants are not
appeased, 'there must be some inconsistency here. Surely lhere can
lie no overproduction when people
have not enough food to eat and
enough clothes lo wear. 1 should
rather call it underconsumption.
We have now come to that point
in our investigation where we must
seek llie reason why, in a country
of such large area, with a nominal
population, and ground able to produce nearly everything the world
desires, men are to-day sicking for
something to do in order to earn
their daily bread, and not finding
it; and when they do, rcceivingsuch
wages us wil! hardly support themselves, to say nothing of theiryvives
nnd families.
A great fault of the human family today, lA-hep starting out on reform measures, is to battle with effects anil nee-
led the priuiury causes of the evil.
What mini, be lie ibe most uneducated
tiller of the soil, would start out to eradicate weeds by culling llieni oil' at the
surface uf the ground, would be not dig
down and remove the ru,ils; mid yel ;Ol
the great reformer parties, temperance
people and labor organizations, are all
lighting effects, all claiming to be right,
while the "ignis I'aluus" is luring tlieni
on to their own destruction,
What then is tbe primary cause of the
evil that is today filling jails and our in
sane asylums, making prostitutes of women and placing u premium bn drunkenness and suicide, while the products ol
industry are taxed lu their utmost lo
keep up this damnable retrograde movement of our civilization? Are these tbe
results of man's development in freedom, or are they the results "t present
conditions over which be has, or thinks
he has no control? Cannot this entire
brood oi evils be laid at ibe door of poverty uud want, the result of bad laws?
Anything, therefore, that nil! better man6 condition will cortainly
lessen crime, Bui-hastate of affaire is
what the single tux "ill bring about,
lt bus already been bIiowii that
taxing a thing bus u tendency lu
discourago it, hence we are going to stop
laxitig Industry and production, because
these are the mainstays "i existence,
and to discourage them Is to sny ilm uc
have no right to thai which nature decreed should be ours, but our entiie
revenue, for all community rurposes, we
propose to take from land values created
by reason of  the  presence of the com-
Tills will la* a direct tux on hind values ns u location, The reason we claim
this io in' no tux is Huu the sum required by the community must be equal to
the value Which they give lu bind by

lly thus letting the laud values furnish
the entire revenue iis before shown, ive

labor problem.
; Regarding the wages of labor I would
say this, ihat llie natural' tendency of
pian is tu work for himself in preference
to working lor some one else. Willi ibe
lun.I open to production, nml every man
able und Killing to apply his lahpr to
natural opportunities, labor would, as a
consequence, become scarce, Capital,
unable to corner land, would bu compelled to employ labor in the production
of those IIllngS which supply man's
wants, al. "in c becoming a benclit tu Im-
tiiniiil. instead of u curse, anil labor be-
".Tiling scarce on account of natural op.
portunitlos being open lo all, labor
would at once lix the price of wages, instead of capital, us under present conditions. Here then you have the solution ul the labor problem by the true and
only science of political economy.
It is very gratifying that so much
public attention is now being directed togambling. It wasonce nn
almost exclusively arisfopratio vice,
but within the last quarter of a
century it lias pervaded the entire
If wc are to judge an evil from its
fruits th.ere can be no question that
gambling is full of the gravest peril.
It is supremely dangerous because
il is so easy to form the habit of
gambling. The opportunities are
so numerous and it can begin on so
sinali a scale as to be scarcely perceptible, Moreover, even our religious teachers are so ignorant and
infatuated upon the subject Ihat
some of thom are disposed to regirt'd
gambling as not nn evil in iiself,
but that it becomes one when the
gambler risks more than he can
conveniently afford to lose.
Until we clearly understand the
essential wickedness of gambling
wc can never take a firm stand
against it. li is a singular fact
that the only moral teacher who
has as yet given us anything like a
scientific description of theessential
evil of gambling is Mr. Herbert
Spencer, who points out that all
gambling is to be condemned as
anti-social, on the twofold ground
that it invariably means gain without merit and gain through another's loss. The secret charm of
gambling indeed consists in the
prospect of getting money without
deserving it, The coarsest spirit of
manimouisni underlies every form
of gambling, The love of money is
the root of all evil, and the main
peril of gambling arises from the
fact that t mt dreaded passion for
money is found in nearly every
human heart and there is no apparent way of getting it so easily as
by indulging in some form of
Every possible temptation and
facility is provided by a certain
class of brokers, antl young fools
are tempted to believe that by run-
ninga little risk ihey iu.;v suddenly
become possessed of great wealth,
Undoubtedly this turns out to be
correct sometimes. They purchase
stock or shares, and through some
accident the value of the property
rise-: in the market, and they are
able to sell out to great advantage,
But ill-gained wealth has a great
habit of taking wings to itself ami
Hying away. Easily won is easily
lost, and once money has been obtained in Ihis dishonest fashion the
temptation to try again is almost
irresistible, and as a general rule
ihe ultimate issue is degeneracy
and ruin. Xo vicious habit c:,u-es
such rapid mora) degeneration as
gnu,I.line. \n ihe serious concerns
of life quickly lose their interest.
The gambler lives in a condition of
unnatural and morbid excitability,
real happiness becomes impossible,
and the disease soon assumes tho
form of moral mania. Temptations
to gamble are .presented in almost
every column nf the public press
ami ut every corner of the street.
The riiniilicaliiins of this vile system
extend lo the humblest scenes of
We shall never succeed in eradicating this vice until we prove how
dishonest and how contemptible il
is. There is no really honorable
way of obtaining money except by
ihe sweat of our brow; by honest,
hard, intellectual or physical work.
The man who gels monev without
merit ami without effort [a a thief,
living upon the toil of others, n disgrace to himself and a pest tn society whoever lis is. The Apostle
Paul said that be who will nol work
shall not eat; and Carlisle waB quite
right in declaring thai the human
race consisted of only two classes,
workers and thieves.

frequently slated   that   the   unexpected habitually happens, let  me
assure  you that  "Pro   Bono Pub-
lico's" letter in last Tuesday's issue
of ihe Free Press only serves to confirm the correctness of my expectations, which were to the effect that

I the Rev. I). A. McRae from Nanai-
I mo be well under way   than  some
cowardly, tagless and  mangy  cur
would be heard yelping   after his
heels.    Those who have resided   in
this city for a number of years will
j not have failed to observe that when
i lhe editor of the   Free   Press  lacks
the  courage  (and  such  occasions
are not rare) to express an honest
opinion on a publio question—such
■ as the recent police inquiry—he in-
I variably presses into his service the
scurrilous pen of his trusty henchmen "Qualioum Tom'' or "Pro Bono
Publico."   lt will   be  remembered
that in the early part of  the year,
when an effort was being  made  to
j remove (.'unstable Thompson  irom
j the police force, "Qualicum  Tom."
assisted the frail and foot-sore  old
man to the foot-lights, and lent him
his support at ihe commencement
of   his   (the   editor's)   crafty and
spiteful   crusade    against   Mayor
Davison, through   the  medium   of
his paper, meantime holding up to
the public gaze as a paragon of virtue and integrity, Ihat same   Con-
stablu Thompson, who, at the present juncture, rests   under  the  disgraceful charge of being an habitue
of  Fraser street   brothels   and of
drinking intoxicating liquors therein, for which money was paid in his
presence contrary to law.
It would be qiiito in order now,
Mr. Editor, for the Free Press to follow your laudable example, and
publicly point out to the mild-
mannercd Constable Thompson,
that if he is innocent nf the charges
preferred against him, his first duly
lo lhe public, himself, find the religious body of which he is said to
be a prominent member, is to call
I for an immediate and thorough investigation; but if guilty of the
•barges, he should lose no time in
livesting himself of the blue cloth
ind brass billions   generously pro-
man, and no longer llie fool he was
in the early part of the present year.
I doubt it. The transmutation is
altogether too sudden to be genuine,
as the following quotation from his
letter will preve: "The majority of
the Council have proved themselves
utterly incapacle of governing the
city, and have made such a disgraceful mess of things generally
that we will be only too glad to
profit by this year's experience."
The public did not   fail   to  notice
j that he did not instance a solitary
ease wherein lhe city had been misgoverned, nor could  he  truthfully
i do so, even were he as wise as he
would have us believe. So
above unsubstantiated allegation
will only serve lo convince the ever
wary public (hat tbe fool of January was slill a fool in June, and
that he has at the present time
