Lord Herschell's Remains to
be Shipped to England.
A   GRACEFUL TRIBUTE
The Hew York Tribune Rofera Feelingly
to the Death   of tho   Great
Statesman.
Washington, March 3.���The funeral
services over the Into Baron Farri r
Herschell will be as simple as possible,
'lhe body will be removed from Ihe
undertaking establishment where il
now lies, to St. John's church, Satnr-
ilny afternoon nnd the services, which
will commence nt 3:15 o'clock, will
he conducted by the Kev. Alexander
McKay Smith, the rector of the ohuroh
At the conclusion of tho services the
remains will be taken to New York
anil will be placet) on board a steamer
bound for England, probably on
Wednesday afternnoou. Lady Her-
schell will await the arrivnl of her
husband's remains at her home. In
vitiitions to attend the funeral services
have been extended to the President
and members of the Cabinet, the Justices of the Supreme Court aud the
diplomatic corps.
A GRACEFUL   TRIBUTE.
New York, March 2.���Referring editorially to the death of Lord Herschell
the Tribune today says: "His last
activities were performed as a member and tbe head of tbe Joint High
Commission which was constitnteii
last year to negotiate a settlement nl
disputes between the United States
aud the British Empire in North
America. That Commission wai
formed of men, eminent and hnnore-
iu their respective countries. It will
not be invidious, and it will be exactly true, to say that not one of then,
brought to the Commission more ol
the dignity of impartiality, of reasonableness, of practical knowledge ol
affairs and of facility in dealing will
them, or that commended it to tin
confidence aud respect of both nations
than did this British statesman and
gentleman. Nor has any one contributed
more to the settlement of at least smut*
of the issues which wo believe now to
be assured. He died with his work on
the Commission apparently incomplete.
But whi-.l he has done will abide am)
bear abundant fruit. It wns only the
other day that the Uuited States was
culled upon ro mourn the death nf one
of its own members of the Commission
aud oue of its foremost statesmen
There were no higher or more appreciative tributes paid to Nelson Dingley
thau those that came from i'ritish
sources. Now there is another chair
made vacant ou the other side. In
lhat sad incident our British kinsmen
have the assurance of American sympathy as deep aud as sincere as their
own grief. The latest efforts of both
these lives were directed toward international friendship aud Anglo-Saxon
unity. Tho realisation of those aims
will be their noblest monument. "
RESOLUTION OF SORItOW.
New York, March 2.���At the monthly
meeting of the New York Chamber  of
Commerce held today resolutions of
sorrow over the death of Lord Herschell woro passed. The resolutions
read that the Chamber of Commerce,
"desires to place on record its gralefu
appreciation of the distinguished star-
vice which Lord Herschell has rendered with couspioous ability to the
English speaking race, ou both sides of
the Atlantic, while acting as President
of the Joint High Commission. " The
resolution was sent by cable to Ambassador Choate, to be oomniunioatod
to the Loudon Chamber of Commerce.
TO REPRESENT LORD MINTO.
Ottawa, March 2.���Capt. Drum-
inond, Military Secretary to the Gov
eruor Geueral, will leave for Washing-*
ton this afternoon to represent Lord
Minto at I nvd Herscholl's funeral.
SALISBURY'S TRIBUTE.
London, March 3, ���In the House of
Lords today, the Premior, Lord Salisbury, reftaring to the death of Baron
Herschell, said it was an almost irreparable loss. He added: "His groat
popularity with our kindred race on
the other side of the Atlantic had
pointed him out for the position lie
lately ocoupied and iu whioh he
showed   great  self-asorirloe aud deep
TROOPS  FOR OTIS.
Six Regiments of Regulars   Are Being
Sent to Manila.
New York, March 2.���Tlie United
States hospital ship, Relief, sailed this
afternoon for Manila. She is in command of Surgeon Major Bradley, and
will carry to General Otis for the relief of the sick am) wounded at Manila, a full cargo ot medical supplies and
delicacies, as well as 200 additional
hospital corpsnmn, a number of acting
assistant surgeons and a number of
hospital stewards.
Washington. March 2.���The secretary of war lias just ordered tlie reinforcement of General Otis' forces bv
six regiments. These aro. Sixth Artillery now at San Antonio, tho Sixth
Infantry, scattered along the Atlantic
coast stations, the Ninth Infantry at
Madison bnrrncks, 18th Infantry in
New York State, 21st Intnntry at
Pluttsluug and the Kith Infantry at
Fort Cook nnd neighboring posts, in
tlie middle west. These regiments
have been ordered to make ready to
proceed to San Francisco and thence
to Manila.
In answer to the direct question as to
Whether or not these regular troops
are intended to relieve a corresponding
number of volunteer soldiers at Manila,
it was said at the War Department
that while this probably would be the
case, it was not possible vot to make n
positive statement. This means that
if, when the reinforcements arrive lit
Manila, the conditions are satisfactory,
the volunteers will be brought home,
hut if Otis shall have need for all of
Ihe combined force then thoy must
wait. The reinforcements are made
ii]i of troopi who arc not only regulars
in the full sense of the term, but who
have been through the Cuban Port*
Rican campaign. They know what it
is to be under fire, how to hunt In
[linns and also how to fight in tin
tropical jungles. With these replacing
ihe same number of volunteers, General Otis will have a majority of reg
nlars in bis command, something tlie
War Department has earnestly desired
to bring about at the earliest possible
moment. The position of the American commander at Manila also Will be
safeguarded against the effect of the
Sadden and forded discharge of vo3*_
tecrs by the rntific dion ot the Peace
Treaty.
THE C. P. R. WON.
Sued in New York for $50000 Damages.
New Y'ork, March 2���Justice Truax
in the Supreme Court today dismisses
the suit of Harry L. B. Noad and An
nie Cleverly against the Canadian Pn-
���ilic Railway for $50,000 damages,
The complainants claimed that three
rears ago they were arrested at the instance of the railwav company which
was trying to get them extradited to
Canada on the charge of robbery. The
extradition proceedings tailed, and the
damage suit was brought as a result.
The court today held that the torn-
ilainants could not show that the
'anadian Pacific Railwav Company
nad caused their arrest, the British
onusul-geueral having appealed against
them in lHllli with the regular extradition papers from tho Governor-General
of Canada and the United States court,
having decided thut the regular representatives nf the Governments,and not
private individuals, are complainants
in extradition proceedings.

EN ROUTE FOR MANILA.
Hong Kong, March 2.���The United
States-Philippine Commissioners left
here today on board tlie United States
cruiser Baltimore for Manila.
Alexandria, Egypt, March 2.���Cecil
Rhodes, who, in the eyes of most
Englishmen is the incarnation of Imperialistic pnliov. holds views concerning the future of the United States
even more far-reaching than most
American Imperialist-- have broached.
Mr Rhodes, in conversation recently
with a representative of tbe Associated Press on hoard the steamer Hap-
burg, on tho Mediterranean, by which
he came to Egypt in the interests of
tho Cape to Cairo Railroad and telo-
grnph, predicted most confidently that
within the century the United States
would have advanced the work begnn
in the acquisition of Cuba until it eon-
lolleil all of the American hemisphere,
except Canada. Mr. Rhodes, expressed admiration for tho work already
done in Cuba and predicted that it
would be carried on in the Philippines. The United States, he consider,
oil one of the nations best equipped for
colonization and repeatedly exclaimed :
"Yon are talking to it like mother's
milk, "apparently with the greatest delight. He did uot believe that the
Ouited States would ever withdraw
its authority from Cuba, aud thought
the manner in which Spain had been
*,.,.e.l from ber colonies- and '.he
United States had taken possession.
most business like Americans' actions
in compensating Spain for tbe Philippines surprised him. "I would have
bundled the Spaniards out and made
them pay a war indemnity. " was his
comment. He declared that the
United States could never withdraw
from the Philipines, because it was
its duty to give these people a strong
and good government; nor did be believe that, when they had begun to
realize the results of their work, the
Americans would desire to abandon
the policy. They might grumble for a
time over the expense, but that would
bo a nitre flea-bite to a nation so rich.
So far as the fear of provoking foreign
entanglements and wars went, while
England and the United States stood
together and mi intained their present
understanding, which was practically
an alliance, no combination of powers
dare menace them. To govern colonies, the United States must organize
a staff of colonial officials, but they
would do that easily as they would
organize a new navy. To tho suggestion of the anti-Imperialists, that the
Philippines would bo only tho beginning of colonization, be said: "There
are no more islands of tlie sea to bo acquired. Thoy ore all taken up. The
territory of savage races is practically
all pre-empted by the civilized The
ultimace work of the Uuited States
will bo to govern South America.
You will probably begin with Mexico,
acquire tho Central American states,
then those on the continent of South
America, until you bold all the country to the south of you. These stales
havo incompetent governments��� practically barbarian governments���and it
will be your duty to give them the
white man's government. Mexico is
well governed; but a nation cannot depend on ono man ; and when Diaz is
dead, it may be ruled no better than
before him. Southward is the direction of the expansion of the Status.
"The Philippines came to yon hy
accident; these neighboring people it
will be logically your duty t.*i provide
for." Asked if Canada would logically
be included in this expansion, he said
thai; Canada had a good government,
therefore there wus no need for change.
Summarizing America's policy he
said: "You people of tho United
1 States cannot always remain within
; yourselves. You cannot always go
on making money. Yon must get out
��� into the world and take up your share
of the world's business.
"Already you are outgrowing your
own country, you Will absorb oilier
countries and give them good govern
ment. Why should not you have it
in your blood? The Philippines will
furnish new careers for your young
,men.   The whole work will strengthen

REDUCES THE NAVY.
American    Government    is    Making
Retrenchments.
Washington, D. C, March 2.���The
Navy Department put the big double
turreted monitor out of commission at
the Norfolk Navy Yard yesterday and
it is said nt tho T+uvig,.tiou Bureau
that tills ship must be followed by
others speedily, to tlie great detriment
of the plans of the Department. The
estimates submitted to Congress, based
on the minimum requirements of the
Navy, provide for 20,000 sailors. Con
gross cut this down to 15,000. There
are now IN, 000 men iu the service
s i that HOOD of  these   ninst be dropped
mnieiliately.    Thai   means, according
fo the navigation officers, lhat a huge
part of the North Athmtic squadron
must go out of commission. The Asia-
t.c squadron cannot be reduced m view
of Dewey's necessities. Another difficulty is going to I e the Impossibility or
rutting into condition  the new  ships
as tbey are turned over to the Govern*
ment by the builders, simply for want
of men to man them.

THE OPERA HOUSE.
The owners of the new Opera House
are entitled to great credit for their
enterprise in providing a place of
amusement tbat was much needed iu
town, and the general wish will be
that it -will prove as successful ns it
is creditable. A building of the kind
had become necessary, if we were to
maintain the metropolitan character
���we were fast beginning to assume.
but it required some courage to undertake it, and by risking tbe investment
tre owners have put the community
nnder a debt of gratitude to them.
In respeot to the management, how-
e*��er, there are some things that are
sadly in need of mending. Much will
be forgiven at the beginning. The
owners Bre new to the business, and
the unfinished condition of the building naturally encourages a disregard
of the strict proprieties. But nothing
should excuse tbe complaint made in a
letter published in yesterday's Miner.
If the statement were uot made ou
the authority of a reputable
correspondent, it would be difficult to believe that nny class of patrons
indulge in the objectionable habit, of
smoking during a performance This
is' a most nnheard of thing, mid tbe
management should take inst .nf steps
to put a stop to it. Only tbe othor
day Tbo Miner reproved the coarseness
of some performers who recently appeared in the Opera House, reminding
them that Nelson was not n rouuh mining camp. In tho face of our correspondent's letter, wb are not sure but this
requires qualification. We do not
know anything that would more certainly gain for us tbe reputation ot
beiug both rough aud tough than to
permit smoking in our theatre.
Complaint has also been made of the
oat-calls and other unearthly noises
which frequenters of the gallery think
themselves permitted to indulge in,
to tbe great anuoyauce of the more respectable portion of the audience
Noises of a similar nature are common
in all theatres, but here they rise to
the magnitude of an unbearable nuis
ance, and unless checked the effect
will be to drive away many who would
otherwise be glad to patronize tbe
performances. Something should be
done, too, to discourage tho female
practice of wearing large hats. This
is a more difficult matter to deal with,
but it has been faced in other places
*��*ud with the most complete success.
It goes without saying that no lady
will appear at a place of publio enter
tainmeut with a headgear that will
prove an annoyance to others; but all
women are not ladies, and tbe vanity
of many makes them indifferent to the
comfort or inconvenience of others.
Ths woman who cannot go to the
opera without her big hat should
have the grace to stay at home.
These are matters which the managers can put right by a little firmness,
and the time to do it is at the very
beginning. If wo start right, it will
he easy to keep right.
Con-
ntil
- i the reasons for privacy have ceased to
I exist. Lord Brougham could not have
intended to go farther when, in 1838,
he ridiculed the idea ihat communications relating to publio business could
be treated as confidential. In tbe
present case, the reasons for privacy
were still in full force, the question
to winch the communication referred
not having been dealt with. What
are wo to think of this blatant publication? It is not permitted to us to
think lhat Governor Mclnnes is himself a mistake; the decision of thnt
question we leave to the politicians,
but without much hope that they will
bo able to agree upon it."
Tho deep respect for official character
manifested by The Monetary Times
is not shared in to a like degree ny tho
people of British Columbia, who long
ago arrived at the conclusion that Ibe
Lieutenant-Governor is himself a
mistake. It is perhaps hardly fnir,
however, to hold him responsible for
this grave breach of the official amenities. Nn doubt lie acted ou tbe advice of bis Attorney-General, a gen-
llonian who was never known to regard tbe proprieties, for the very
sufficient reason that he is incapable
of appieeiatiug Ihem. Fearfully and
wonderfully constituted, he is and always has been a law unto himself.
PIANOS
AT
Rossland is not to be satisfied with
a member nt the Capital, but is also
to havo a deputation. Having returned from bis effort to extract more appropriations, tho Mayor iu an interview roportB that be was too late, the
Government uot oaring to reopen the
Estimates, as it would be an invitation
to all sections to put in fresh demands.
But if tbe oity had been properly represented, he says, more would have
beeu given in the first instance. To
provide against failure another time,
he recommends that a delegation be
sent to Victoria at the next session,
to be on the spot and see that justice
is done to Rosslaud. Certainly our
neighbors are in no danger of suffering
through the want of nerve.

A   MISTAKE.
The peculiar methods which distinguish officialdom at Victoria under the
present regime aro attracting atten- ]
tion abroad. Wo quote from The To-
ronto Monetary Times: "Lieutenant
Governor Mclnnes of British Colum-
bia is charged with having made the j
grare blunder of publishing a private
communication, made to him from tho
Colonial Secretary, through tho Canadian Government. It related to the
reception or exclusion of Japanese subjects, as immigrants, and at the same
time the publication was made the
statement was ungraciously put forward that they would bo excluded. If
suoh things are liable to occur, it is
evident there must be au end to confidential communications between tb*
Governments. Thoy are a convenience, when used within due limits;
���ven if the timo comes when the seal
of seorecy can be removed. When does
the time arrive when such removal
can fairly be made? Tho House of

AINSWORTH DISASTER INVESTIGATION AT THE  COURT HOUSii.
1)1411. Junius Qaudin,   Before  Whom the
Evidence will be Given, Arrived
in Nelaon Last  Night*
The investigation ordered "by the
Provincial authorities in connection
with the wreck of the Steamer Ainswortll on Koolenay Lake, near Crawford Bay, on Nov. 29 last, will begin
at the Court House this morning he-
fore Capt. Jnmes Gnudiu, nf the Department of Fisheries and Marine at
Victoria.
All preliminary details have heen
cnrafully cared for bv Mr. IT. Unllock-
Wehtscr, Chief of Provincial police.
All of tne witnesses who will le
examined during the investigation, nt
least, those who could lie reached, hnve
been summoned am' nearly nil of
them were iu Nelson lust night. The
Btory of the wreck of tne Ainswortll is
still fresh iu the minds of residents
of Kootonay. Word of lhe disnstor
was received in Nelson on tha morning
nf Not. 80. It wus ns bad news as
Nolson over received and for a day or
two nothing wus tnlkod ot on the
Btreets or in public placet. The loss of
the steamer was as nothing compared
with the loss of the lives of nine mon,
whose bodies still lay somewhora in
the waters of Kootenay Lake. They
were ull men well known in Nelsou
aud some of them with extensive acquaintances throughout the Kootenay
country. The survivors of the disaster
urrived in Nelson with the news and
their stories have been told and retold.
There were at first charges made that
the officers of the boat had shown the
"'white feather" and other charges
thnt the steamer was nnseaworthy.
The West Kootenay Board ot Trnde
conducted an inquiry on its own account and itB findings were thnt the
officers had acted in a proper manner
nnd thnt the boat, wns then senworthy.
The mutter was then allowed to drop
and nothing further was doue until the
Provincial authorities ordered an inquiry which will begin today.
Captain Gaudin, before whom the
,Y deuoe will be given, arrived in Nelson last night aud was seen at the
Hume Hotel by i. reporter for The
Miner. "The proceedings will uot be
at all in the nature of a prosecution,"
said the Captain, "it is simply an investigation and after all tbe evidence
has been received and thoroughly digested, I will make my report to the
Department at Victoria. I think we
will be able to finish the work by Saturday. There are undoubtedly many
witnesses who have beeu summoned
whose evidence will not be material,
and these will not be heard. We do
not intend to hurry the matter any but
will listen   to   no hearsav  evidence "
The first session will be held this
morning at 10 o'clock at the Court
Houso and morning und afternoon sessions will be held until the inquiry
is over.

LIBERALS  ARE ANGRY.
Claim Thnt a Member of Their Association Divulged Secrets.

Woll Attended Lecture at the Sohool of
Cookery Yesterday.
At the School of Cookery yesterday
the members of the class wero given a
taste of devilled crnh, chicken pie, apple pie, and cheese savory. The deli
Ofioies, that Mis- Livingstone makes to
illustrate her lectures, are passed
around and they never fail to pie ise
thn palate. Tlie lecture yesterday was
on pastry and although Miss Livingstone makes this most essential part
of n great ninny ehoico dishes in quite
the ordinary way, the product of her
skill proved to be remarkably good.
The attendance was large and th*o lee-
tnra was followed closely. Today's
subject will be Yeast Doughs���Bread,
Parker house rolls, hot cross buns,
French rolls, etc. Tickets are being
sold rapidly for the lecture on onmp
cooking on Tuesday evening next.
Miss Livingstone will cook a grant
ninny things in one dish, as most
campers aro forced to do. She will use
only ingredionts thnt nre bandy
enough to hnve in camp but it goes
without saying that she will produce
delicious delicacies that are seldom
more than dreamt of by campers,
lhe proceeds will be devoted to the
Free Public Library so the attendance
should be large. A great many men
should avail themselves of this opportunity to learn how to enjoy all the
comforts of a home while living under

for $11,000.
There were Borne objections to tho
proposition of Mr. Hillyer, but out of
69 creditors or representatives of creditors voting on tho motion to accept the
offer, only 17 were ngniust it. The
meeting of tho creditors was held in
the Hume Hotel last night, with John
A. Turner, chairman, and R. S. Lei-
nie, secretary. Mr. Turner stnted th*
purposes for whioh the meeting hud
been culled, i. e., to consider Mr. Hill-
yer's proposition. Macdonald and
Johnson, on behalf of the Merchants'
Bank of Halifax and others, protested
against a discussion of the matter ou
the grounds that proper notice to all
creditors had not heen giveu. Mr. S
S. Taylor, representing Mr. Hillyer
and his associates, took a baud in the
affair and a somewhat heated debate
followed, whioh was participated in hy
nearly all of the leading members ot
the Nelson bar.
It was filially moved by Mr. W J.
Wilson, and seconded by H. D. Ash-
croft that "the offer of Charles Hillyer of Febru try 25, for the purchase of
the assets of the estate, be  accepted. "
W. A. Macdonald, representing the
Kootenay Supply Co., moved in
amendment,seconded by Bradeu Bros.,
that "with respect to the offer of
Charles Hillyer, such offer be not now
accepted, but that this meeting adjourn for two weoks, to then consider
such offer or nny other offer.'' A vote
on tha amendment was taken by roll
call, showing 52 against und 24 favorable. The amendment was declared
lost and the original motion was then
put and carried, by a   vote of 62 fo 17.
It was then moved bv Mr. Hugh Mo-
Dermott, seconded by McLellnu nnd
McFeelay, thnt a committee be appointed by the chair to make the ne
cessnry arrangements to consilium* e
the deal. The motion prevailed I ud
the chuirinnu uppoiuted ns the committee: O. W. McAuu, Q. 0., of Kns
lo, J. A. Kirkpntrick, H. D. Ashcroft.
Upon motion of John Taylor, sec-
ouded by Hugh McDermott, the assignee was authorized to make proper application to the court for confirmation
of the sale. The meeting then adjourned.
It is more than likely that only preferred and secured creditors will re-
ceivo anything out of the settlement
made.

Successful Presentation of the Romantic Drama Last Night.
Bartley Campbell's powerful roninn-
tio drama, "Divorce,' or "Woman
Against Woman'' was the bill at the
Opera House last evening. This piece
is notable from the fact tbat there are
three parts that have bi eti starred at
various times. Mere than oue c "median has built up a reputation as M. 1
.Muggs, ihe broken down showman.
This role was well taken by Mr. Robert Buchanan. He due** not claim to
be the greatest comedian living i ut he
certainly is entitled to the credit of
giving ,i most amusing representation
of the enterprising showman. As
Harry Grantley, Victor Lambert, was
most acceptable. It is a difficult role
to play and it is worth remarking
that it is one of the longest iu the
short cast plays so popular with stock
companies. Miss Grade Hayes scored
another success in the emotional part
of the neglected wife. Miss Hayes has
become a Nelson favorite. Her acting
is good, aud what is equally as much
iu favor with audiences, she gives her
lines distinctly, Edward Buchanan
left but little to be desired as the deserted husband while the Sallie Annie
Waddles of Miss Buchanan was most
enjoyable, The part of the adventurer
taken by Miss Mr Alpine was very
clever at times. The other members
tributed their share to the entertain-
meu of the audience.

Mining matters around Ymir are
booming. The Miner of that town contains the following interesting   it ms:
H. E. T. Haultain, M. E., the general manager of tho yellowstoue mine,
was in Ymir Saturday. He savs they
have IS men nt work. It is an excellent prospect and everything is going
on satisfactorily. The Yellowstone is
being eugiueeied by private capital.
The Dundee mill lias rammed work-
after having been temporarily shot lown
in consequence of the phenomenal cold
snap, wliicb froze up nil the pipes.
Wagon lo.ids af concentrates, averaging
between $60 and $K0 per ton, are coming down continually and are being
shipped to the Northport smelter. The
first-class ore from the richer chutes
from which the smelter returns averaged $55 per ton, will be shipped without concentration.
In No. 1 tunnel on the Rio Grande
a large body of ore. averaging from
$18 to $:i0 per ton in all values, was
met with in a quite unexpected posi
tion. Work has been commenced upon
a second tunnel which will tap a ledge
which has splendid surfaco showings.
At the depth of HI feet nn Ibis vein
an assay was taken which returned

The     Nebulous   Africander  Republic
as Seen   By Cecil Rhodes.
Perhaps of all the colonies and possessions, Canadians, next to their
own, are most interested in South
Africa. And of all colonial personages Mr. Cecil Rhodes is undoubtedly
the most interesting. To a correspondent of The Moining Post he has
. een giving nis views on the South
African situation:
"I spoke at Klipdam and generally
in my constituency during election of
' Krugerism ou an Afrikander basis.'
lhat is what a considerable party in
South Africa is trying to make per-
nauciif. If yon asked me to defint
the aim of ihese persons I should say it
was a distant and a nebulous Repub
neon an Afrikander basis. Do uot
misunderstand me. A great portion * 1
the Dutch population in tbe colony is
loyal, admirably loyal. But there ih
a sei-tiou which has in view���bazilj
������iiougb. I daresay���tbe sort of objective 1 have described. And this is jus
what every good subject of Queen
viotoria must do his level best '.
���oinbat. It does not matter wbetbri
be is British or Dutch, his duty is pre-
lisely the same
" Plainly.the one chance of the Cap-
lolony and of the whole country   fr i,*.
lie   Lion's Head to   the   Zambesi,    is
init racial srrife should   cease   to   be
.-.e have two races, both of them streu
ions   and   dominant     They have  had
nsseiision       in the   past���dissensions
.vbich were largely due   to   time   am*
.pace   obstacles     which   day   by   day
grow less.    But,    whatever   these dis
tensions, they must   cease���th y shall
cease.
"Very well; hut, while there must
ne an end of racial discussion, there
.re limits to the methods by which
one wishes to see that good end reached.
"To begin with, it is not right that
a National party,I composed almost tn
1 man of the members of one race-
be Dutch���should be given an immense advantage politically to another
-.arty, of which the great majority is
British. Yet this bas been the rela-
t ve position of Boud aud Progressive
in the Colony, when the Bond, with
.,0,000 votes bad a victory at the polls
over 56.000 Progressive voters. The
Redistribution Bill will make tbe
odds more evenly balauceu���I do not
mean balance the odds more evenly
between Dutch aud English but between English and Dutch Progressive and Dutch Bondsman. It will
dofer the realization of that nebulous
Republic!
"Now you will say very fairly :
B*it bow, believing so much in the necessity of English and Dutch agreement, did you come to subscribe to a
Resolution against a Dutch Government in an independent State'- This
brings me to the Transvaal and of the
Transvaal I will say this. The British people have one very fine trait
which I do not think you will find so
easily in any other nation; they have
always a good word foi their opponents' side. It seems a permanent feature in the British character. And do
you notice that if an adversary is
weaker than ourselves how this feeling is emphasised?
"But let us ask ourselves a few-
questions. Firstly,is it an old population like the French in Canada.' On
the contrary, it is new. It ceased to
be an independent State because it
oould not goon and,rightly or wrongly,
it was annexed. 'Iben as you know,
it was given bac'< to ils President
and population, and its independence
restored. This was due entirely to
tbe generosity of Queen Victoria One
piint here: Has tbe re-established
Sate been grateful? (me knows that
the President���fine old fellow and all-
has intrigued everywhere against the
Sovereign who restored his State
"But now comes in the new population, the Utilanders.
"Thoy develop tne country, tbey convert the pastoral State that was bankrupt a short time before into one of
the richest Srates of its size anywhere ;
aud then, when I hey have interests and
Implications which thev cannot leave,
or cannot leave without loss, nn comes
the thumb screw, and the details of
the taxation and all tho grievances
von know as well as I do
"If I were President Krngor I dare
say I might not have giveu   the   Uit-
Tailor spend his money in Nelson ? No. Then buy
your clothes from a Nelson Tailor who does. We bey
to announce that we have cut our prices so close this
season that you will find no difference between them
and any reputable house in the East. Then all things
beiny; equal, surely you will favor home industry. Our
clothing is made in Nelson.    All we ask is a trial.
