(SPECIALS TO TIIK MIl-EIl.)
Vietoria, Aug. 21.��� Tbe committee
Investigating the ealling out of the
militia iluring the fraser River Btrike
beard the labor unionist story Saturday. Prom this it Is apparent tbat
tbe union endeavored to hold up the
dinners, putting pistols .at their beads,
for shares in the profits at risk of loss
uf the season. The union, however,
overstepped itself us the Japanese got
twenty cents, while the strikers
eventually went fishing for nineteen
cents a fish,
Secretary Rogers of the union states
that Pinkerton men were employed by
the eanners, hut that one ollicer betrayed to the strikers all that W8! being done lnoludlng a plot to incite the
strikers to acts of violence thereby
furnishing an excuse for calling out
thc Soldiers under whose guns three
then .nni Japanese should go fishing,
and by force of numbers drive the
white fishermen out of a husiuess
north a   million dollurs annually,
The general hearing of the witness,
however, detracted from the weight
of his testimony. The union officers
appear also not to be bonatiile tishor-
men, but agitators from elsewhere.
The report will be made today.

of unfinished business including the
i'.iiii.-M' labor aud Immigration acts.
Resolutions to Ottawa in regard to
bringing the Natal Act into force,to increase the salaries uf judges aud for

London, Aug. 27.���The following
despatch was sent today by Lord
Roberts:
"Belfast, Sunday. Aug. 20.���Engaged the enemy the greater part of
the day over a perimetre of nearly
thirty miles. Lyttleton's Division
and two brigades of cavalry, all under
Buller, operated southwest of Dal-
manuthu. French with two brigades
of cavalry moved northwest of Belfast,
driving the enemy toLckenyly, on thc
Be]fast- Lydenberg road.
"As soon as French reached Lek-
enyly, Pole-Carew advanced from Bel*
fast in support. Thc enemy in considerable strength opposed Buller's
and Pole-Carew's advance. He brought
three Long Toms and many other guns
aud pom-poms, quick firing guns, into
action. The fire until dark was hot
and persistent. Bullet hopes his casualties will not exceed forty, Pole-
Carew has not yet reported.
"The Boerfl are making a determined
stand. They have a large number of
guns, the country is difficult and well
suited for their tactics aud is less
favorable to cavalry than any we have
hitherto worked over."
(ieluma Farm, Aug. 27.��� (leneral
Pole-Carew came into touch with the
BoerB at their main position at Kala-
muth on Saturday and shelled a plantation east of Belfast, The Hoers replied with long range guns, (leneral
French, on General Puller's Hank, exchanged shots with the Hoers, but no
damage was done. An artillery duel
occurred on the Hritish front also, the
twelve-pounders bombarding the Hoers'
position, the latter displaying great
enterprise in handling their gnus,
which were strongly placed. The enemy
evidently intends to contest stubbornly
the ground between here aud Mache-
dorp.
The War Otlice has received the following   dispatch   from Lord Roberts:
"The Boer! have been beaten buck by
Hruee Hamilton at Winburg. (leneral
Olivier has been captured."

trap for his cavalry Aug. 23, opeuingl
with several guns at fairly short
range. The Knglish guns silenced the
Boers, but when the firing ceased and
the pickets were being placed for thc
night by sonic mistake the companies

FALSE
RUMORS
No Truth  In  Reports That
War Is Declared by

Nor Have They Invited Great

(BV ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, Aug. 27.���There is absolutely no truth in the despatch from
Che Foo of Aug. 21th saying it was
rumored on good authority: "That
Russia, Germany and Japan had declared war on China and had invited
(Ireat Britain and the I'nited StateB

qulries made at St. Petersburg, Berlin

DAY LABOR OR CONTRACT
ludgment may  Beera expedient.

judges, bankers,  and others   who are
Editor and Manager j.supposed to possess special knowledge
of business and municipal    iTairs gen-
an assessment system that Is not   like   hluflOlulflQlJ       EHPPluB
Several times within   the  past year
there have been discussions In OUT City
Council, on the the street, in our busi-
m sso_l,v_.anil wherever men meet and
exchange   views,   as   to   the   relative
economy  of  day   labor aud  contract
work.    Thc common sense ol the question has always decided   in   favor   of
contract work; but the Council,moved
by   something   higher   than   common
sense, voted that much of   the   public
work of the   City  should   he done   by
labor employed by the   day, under the
supervision of hired foremen.     It was
not believed that under this system as
much would be obtained   from the expenditure,    but     it   would    keep   the
peace with a labor section in the City
that was inclined  to be turbulent and
domineering, aud submission   to   this
species  of tyranny was  thought to be
better than perfect fidelity to thc public     trust    with     which   our     representatives in the Council had been Im-
vested.
They have had much   of   thc   same
kind of experience in Winnipeg. They
have their labor agitators in that city,
tun. and they have men in representative capacities who pander   to   them.
The result has been that a considerable
quantity uf corporation work has been
done by day    labor.    Whether   owing
to the prickings of conscience or some
other cause,the Chairman of the Board
of Works there made minute and careful investigation of the   whole   question, and the result of   his   inquiries
has just been submitted in the form of
a report to the Council.    The   inquiry
was confined to about a   dozen   pieces
of sewer that wero beinf* constructed.
The city engineer had made   an   estimate on all of these, and tenders  had
then been obtained, but in every   case
thc work bad been  undertaken hy the
Corporation    itself,    with   day   labor,
under the direction   of   foremen   employed   for {.he   occasion.    The   facts
disclose that according   to   the   engineer's estimate the work should   have
cost J.O.i'i'.i.*, ; if let   out   by   tcader   to
"good    reliable   contractors" the cost
would have been   832,001;   under   the
System actually employed the cost was
$26,201,    Tbe tenders exceeded the engineer's estimate   by (1,300,   but   the
actual cost, uinler day labor, was greater by 8",..',1.1. and exceeded the amount
for which thc work would   have   been
done by   "good   reliable  contractors"
by the very considerable snm of (1,2117.
That is, about twenty percent, of thc
honest value of the work was dissipated in the desire to   pander   to   a   few
noisy agitators who   are   supposed   to
control some votes.
No business man of the least astuteness ever supposed  that day labor was
'as economical as contract work.    It is
to   the   interest   of   contractors   to be
economical | a foreman aud his gang of
men   have   Seldom   any   other   desire
than   to   put   in their day as easily as
is consistent with a show of industry.
It   is   not    in nature that  the average
man will work as well for a civic corporation   as  under thc eye of the man
on   whom   he    depends   for   his   pay.
The   honest laborer  does not care the
value   of   a   button whether he works
under a corporation foreman or a contractor; he will put in a good, honest,
faithful day  in any case, and the contractor's dollar   is  just as good as the
corporation dollar.  It is the dishonest,
i-liirUin;: laborer and   the agitator behind   him   who demand  that corporation work shall be done by day labor,
and   it   is weak or designing corporation   representatives    who   yield    to
them,   The ratepayer whose money Is
sacrificed   In   thc   wretched   game between the two   is not considered, aud
we are not sure that he deserves to be
unless   he    lias   the   spirit to   protest
Willi   his vote when   given the opportunity.     	
Ontario has an assessment hv.tcm
that has beei utructed on something closely approaching a scientific
basis, bul it lias grown and grown until now it is thought to have become
Bomcwlial complicated, in , sequence of tiiis opinion the Government have appointed a Commission to
inquire into tbe whole question of assessment, and who will recommend
yuch chungeo or  amendment*  s*  in
unto anything else on thc face of   the
earth; its lines are  as   unscientilic as
they well can he. the only clearly de
lined and distinguishable feature   being a desire to raise   the   most   taxes
with the least expenditure   of   effort.
The Government at Victoria cannot do
better than follow the example set by
the t Iovernment at  Toronto,    and   appoint a Commission with  instructions
to go into the matter fully and   devise
an entirely new system,based on principles of equity and common sense.

It  is   thought   the Federal political
pot is uearinj* the boiling point.   Ministers were expected to meet on Saturday last, to decide on   the date of tlle
general   elections.    If   a decision was
readied   they have   not   yet   given  it
out;   but   that   is not   to be taken   as
evidence   that   the question  was held
over   for future  consideration.      It is
probable   the day has  been fixed, and
in the meantime Ministers will engage
in preparing their own forces for the
fray and in obtaining such advantage
as they can before the secret leaks out.
They are in need of all the advantage
that   can be got   to   come their way.
The Laurier Government may not have
been guilty of any monHtrous political
crime, but they have demonstrated beyond the possibility of misunderstanding or misconception that their party
is one of organised hypocrisy, and the
country is aching to   be rid of   them.
They were full to the neck with prom
iaes and   pledges before they got into
power, and onee in they broke nearly
every one of them and   gave a violent
twist to the few they did not.    Canadians do not love hypocrites,

Few Followors.
, ondou, Aug. 37-Lord Roberts has
left Pretoria for the first time In several weeks and sends a dispatch from
ffonderfonteln 112 miles east of the
Oapital, describing the progress made
l,v Pole-Carew and French in pressing
back Hotha'a army.
Tlie good impression produced hy
tUis Information y&tcrday was soiue-
wi at dampened by a later message
from the Commander-in-Chief, stating
another little mishap had occurred to
_ part of (leneral Buller's force, enraged with another of Botha's commandoes ou Thursday. By some mistake, two companies of a Hritish infantry regiment advanced far beyond
the firing Une after an engagement
was supposed to have ceased and were
surrounded by the Hoers, losing nearly 100 men killed, wounded and prisoners.
Dewet. however, is said to be retiring across the mountaiu passes to the
Orange Hiver Colony in a very crippled condition and with   only   a   few
followers.
Sir Charles Warren has just arrived
in Loudon from Soutli Africa and is
In a communicative mood. The gallant general is by no means inclined
to sit down quietly under the criticisms passed upon him and opened liis
campaign by speaking freely about
Spiou Kop. on which he has already
addressed a long and detailed explanation to the War Ollice.
He does not ndinit the responsibility for the occupation of that position
which he says he did not approve, but
on the contrary suggested to lleueral
Buller an alternative plan, which was
the ono eventually adopted by the
(leneral. At thc same time, (leneral
Warren suys. when ordered to take
Hpiou Kop he did so, and the troops
could have maintained themselves
there until the Hoers had abandoned
the attack, hud not Colonel Thorney-
eroft unaccountably given the order to
retire during the night.
Fur this movement (leneral Warren
says that he was himself in no way to
blame, It is evident that there is
likely to be a rather sharp controversy
on this and several other points between some of the rival generals and
their supporters when   the
is finished,
campaign
possibly before.

The proper place to acquire a thorough, working knowledge of BUSlneSS Education, which
is essential to business success, is in an institution
where competent instructors devote the whole of
their   time   to   imparting   this   knowledge to  the
students.
The practical work of this school is already
well known to some of the people of this thriving,
progressive city. We are keeping abreast of the
demands of the limes, which call for first class, well
qualified Bookkeepers, Stenographers, etc.
Young men and women will find it profitable to
attend this school.  Day and Evening Classes
always in session.
Private lessons in Penmanship, etc., may be
arranged for at hours to suit the convenience of
those unable to attend the regular classes.
Rooms 6 and 7 Victoria Block, Josephine Street.
