Bpeeob, said ho had seldom known sn
little to be said iu such a large number ot words. As, however, the war
advanced, it became more difficult
and more eriti-al and ho was not surprised that the Government had nut
proposed  n  formidable programme of
legislation hh affairs in South   Africa,
political and military, would nn
donbtedly ettgage iho present Parliament to a groat extent. The war wus
uppermost in all minds when the
Members separated in Oct .her. and it
was believed there were tiuops enough
iu Snnth Africa to rapidly cleai thn
Queen's dominions, but their expectations hnd been sobered, Week after
week had seen checks, dis.mpoint-
uients and deplorable   loss of   life.    In
every instance the advance of the Hritish troops hnd been stayed by large
'lodies ot the enemy. Hut the country
had again and again gone through
greater trials with oournge and composure ami would not now depart from
its high traditions.   The courage and

Which led their countrymen to volunteer but he wished In know the reasons

Vigorous proserin inn of the war, that

be speedilv vinoieaied, and he Imagined there would be nn difficulty 111
nntiiiniiig the additional supplies necessary.    "Ilete   my   ngieenielit   with
ibe Government ceases," said Sir
Henry Ciimpholl-Banueniinn.
Sir    Henry    O.mpbell-Bannermnn,
then iiroeeeried with n hitter condemnation of the Administration and the
tune and   temper   iii   Whioh it had ap-
pi'nilcoed the whole South  Africa pinh-
leni, saying that tho narrowness uf the
Government's  pio-ision   for military
requirements    necessitated   hostilities
nnd asserting that us policy marie war
probable.    He   believed   this     feeling
wns largely shared   hy the  House   ami
wns glad nf the  opportunity   promised
to express his opinion. The spencer repudiated   the   idea   tbat   should  they

the veiy tunc, ho rteolured,for effective

continued, "thut this   war wns undertaken to sei'iui- eqnnl rights tut"   wliite

ed in tbo affirmative He then pro-
oeeded to rebuke the Opposition for
criticizing tho Wnr Ofllce, declaring
that it was sulely due to the ell'orts of
the Government during the last three
years thnt the army nnd armaments
were greatly improved, "Tho Opposition," snid Mr. Balfonr, "are apparently ready lo take upon their nwn
shii'il icrs tho Government of the country und tho oonduot of tbe wnr. I
wish them well through tbo task. The
Government has not disguised irom
itself the magnitude of tho task and it"

dence of the Parliament."
Lord Edmund Pits Maurice then
moved the nmendment to the nadress
"and we humbly express oor regret nt
the want of foresight and judgment
displayed by Her Majesty's advisers as
shown alike in the conduct of African
nffniist since I89S and in their preparation for the wnr now proceeding."
Lord Pits Maurice attacked Mr.
Chamberlain's policy, especially his
failure to punish the raiders nud the

In the House of Lords, the Puke of
Somerset, in speaking on the address,
eulogized tbe loyalty of the Colonies,
especially Canada, nnd strongly depreciated the adverse criticism of General
Holler his remarks in this connection
being cheered. He snid hn had every
onnfidenoe in General Buller aud in
Loid Huberts.
The Earl  of   Shaftesbury, Conservative, emphasised the debt of gratitude
which Great Brifiim owed   lo hoi Col-
Otlles, and expressed   satisfaction with
the settlement of the Samoan question
The Libera] leader in the   House   of
Lords, the Earl nf Kintherley,    followed.    He said be wns glad  to learn that
Gieut   Britain's relations  with   other
states were friendly.   He added thnt he
believed the   term could be justly   an-
plied to the relations   witn   Enrocean
Governments and   the  United   States,
nud deprecated undue attention to  the
attacks  of   the   foreign     press.     His
Lordship congratulated Lord Salisbury

with Germany,bnt strongly disapproved of the lone  of   Mr.  Chamberlain's

waiting until the COUntty bad   become to consider the  possibilities  of tbo fu-
involved   in   military   difficulties,    I" tine, nnd it wniild lin   well if the Gnv-
Lord Salishury, in ieply to the Earl
of Kimberley, assorted that there was
nothing in the stipulations of the oon-
venli n to limit and binder tbe importation of arms and niinnnnilion into
the Transvaal through Lorenzo Mar-
quiz. Continuing tho Premier said:
sain*: "We must join together and exercise all onl' pnwoiH in extricating
ourselves from a situation full uf humiliation and not free frum danger. I
will not say the danger may not have
easily been exaggerated. Nn country
has commenced wnr with difficulties
of the kind we experienced. We have
only to look nt what the northern
states of America went through at the
beginning of tbe civil war to see hoiv
easy ir would ho to draw a mistaken
Inference from the reverses wo have
met at the outset. We hnve every
ground to think, thnt if we set ourselves heartily to work and exert all
the undoubted instruments of the power we possess, wo shall tiring the wnr
to a satisfactory conclusion. Wo have
work which appeals ro ns as subjects
of the Queen and it must throw in the
shade nil thought of party nnd expediency. ''
"Why wero we to know about tho
importation of arms? I believe guns
weie introduced into the Transvaal in
hollers, and munitions of wni in piano
ca��es. We bad a small secret service
fund. If you want much information
yon must give much money. Consider
tho enormous amounts spent by other
Governments,nnd especially the Trms-
vaal, which, I have beard on high
diplomatic authority, spent ��800,000 in
n single year, and the small sums
spent by England, making it imposs-i-
tile fm- us to have tho omiiiscence at tli -
tinted to ns by Lord Kimberley. I nm
ulnd be has not pressed nn immediate
inquiry into the action of the military
authorities at *a time when our Generals in the field and many of those wbo
oould give most valuable information
are nimble to appear, We should defer an inquiry to a more convenient
Later the Premier admitted the de-
ffioietioy nf the existing system, remarking that the treasury bad acquired a powei which was not to the publio benefit. He had not thought, looking into past history, or examining tho
amount of blame to bo nttuched to this
or that Minister.
Lord Salisbury then said he regretted thai Lord Edmund Fitzmaurtoe, in
the House .of Commons, was about, to
bring this great issue into party controversy, adding that thn only place
where his action would meet with
sympathy       wiih       Pretoria.      "Our
efforts,"   the   Premier     continued,
"must be to retrieve ourselves from
the preseul situation which cannot bo
allowed to last. This Empire is a valuable and splendid but responsible
possession.   Wo must  concentrate our
efforts. If we do not tame nil the
smaller passions into one gtent duty,
we run the danger of convulsions
which will tarnish the Empire's lustre, and perhaps menace its integrity."
Lord Rosebery, who {followed Lord
Salisbury, spoke with great force and
earnestness, He asked why the Premier made it so difficult for the man-in-
Ihe-street to support his policy. The
past conduct of the Government, would
come up for investigation he hoped,
ndding: "We have the right to know
if, before   the   crisis, tbe  Intelligence
niel and the sacrifices we
have made, is one oi the most extraordinary features of the British constitution, 1 agree with l.nrd Salisbury
that tbe oountry can curry this thing
through in spite of nil the iiiipliments
of men aud methods tbat hnve s' aokled
u in the pant. But I venture to say it
will have tn b- inspired by a loftier
tone und truer patriotism .than shown
hy the Prime Miuistcr.'*
The Marquis of Lansdowue, Secretary of Stale for Wnr, followed. He
snid he was prepaid! to make a statement at a future date. Ihe Government, ho added, wos not prepared and
hud excellent reason f ,r not pushing
its arrangements further.
In his opinion the Intelligence Do-
pertinent bad accurately estimated the
numbers and armaments of the eue-
my, bnt not their fighting powers.
'The Boer forces hnve shown an
amount of resource, mobility nnd tenacity," Lord Lnnsdowno admitted,
"upon which the Government did nol
calculate." With regard tn the charge
of uuprepurednesB for war, be declared
thai tho Government bud Imped and
believed the negotiations would end
in pence und that the preparations for
u conflict woold only hnvo tended to
precipitate  it."

from tbe Throne wns then adopttd.

Our correapondent   at  the  Capital
nays that a   Bill tn amend  the   "Coal
Mines Regulation Act" will either   be
withdrawn   or  radically    altered;  its
clauses nre so  drastic  that many   sop-
porteraol the Government have become j
alanneil and show   rigna  of  rt-bellin;,'. '
It is a little   hopeful to see  that aome
tiling can stngK'-r 'he   present Legisla-
iiir,      II is a-   reckless   a   one   a- ever
convened to   legislate for   a Province
It- fundamental weakness  is a lack   of
intelligence, and wanting wi' itself it
eaeilv  rum-   to demagogoi-m.    It   has |
conceived the notion  that to pander to I
, very popular clamor  is to achieve the I
bighe-t    aim   of    statesmanship.
An amendment specifically prohibit-1
iug Chinese and   Japanese from work-
in;;    in    the    coal     mines    of     the
Province    was    declared    uncoustitu-
licraal      The    Bill    in    question    ia
designed   to  attain    the   same    pur-
poee In another   way.    It   is pronoacd
that   no one   -ball   be employed   in   a
mine who oannot   read tb��-  prescribed
regnlattona   as    printed   in   Eoalish.
There is another   Bill, introduced hy a
'i.i un'." auk member.to provide tbat all!
peraona employed in a mine shall wear
their hair cut short.    The average   Intelligence of the Ministerial aided the
Honae is of a character   to  appreciate
legislation of this kind; however, it is
tii" education   test  that is  at  preaent
under   consideration.    It is  beginning
to dawn <,n the members tb.-t   possibly
there ar- miners to whom the Engliah
tongue is natural   who   are unable",to
read a lentenoe   printerl   iu   English.
These would   lie  ,-xcrnded, as   well as
the   Mongolians.     Thoie   aie    doubts
whether the Legislature has a right to '
deprive  any  class of onr  own   people \
ot their btead and butter.  Accordingly j
the Bill is to be taken   under  particu- 1
lar and very coieful consideration.
Any ,ause in the cateer towards
demagognlam 1- to be welcomed, but
the real value and r-igniflcunce of this
one we am unable t" estimate. That
will be better judged when considered
iu connection with what may follow.
The 1 oal mine? are not the only ones
that are threatened with serious evil
by the wretched -pirit that is abroad. \ Loo'< in
A year ago the Legislature blindly'
��� li 1 !-d an amendment affecting   met   ]
-iilifei u- minea that has already caus- ���
ml much injury and is threatening still
greater    We do   not pretend to   know '���
whether an eight-hoot day is too long
or too abort,  or  tbe  happy  medium'
etween the two; bnt tbe  mdd_n and'
arbitrary declaration  tbat eight  hours 1
���-hall constitute   the   day   has  created
nvlla  tbal   a wlae  Ivegisiature would
hasten   to   remove.    If   the    members
<hall prefer   tn   bi matter-   take their
. that i".  if   they choose   ratli.-r
10 submit to the Unions, they will un   ;
'liieatiiiiiably pave   the way fur greater .
,vils to come.    If the  miners watt 1-'
alone tbere would  be no trouble   Bnt
it is the walking   delegate, the   -cere
inry, and tbe  "Micials   generally  that
ihe future in this   Province will   have
to reckon with.    These are  the prnf��s-
mi-l���, tbe men whn live by agitation,
who snbalat on the   troubles  tbey   aie
nble to create.  Let them win a victory
all along tlie line in tbe present struggle, and it   woulrl   uot   he long before
Ibey   had   sumo   other    agitation   on
fool    A second victory wonld he easier
than tbe lirM.  fur   there   wonld he the
prestige of sneeesa to aid them ina
ihnit time the v.alking delegate wonld
e master of tbe situation in Blitiah
Colnmbia. I- that a prospect to contemplate with equanimity? The Couei
d'Alenea ia one of the rioheei mining
region- in the world, (fifteen years ng "
it was struck with the blight of this
naw-faabloned unionism, and it has
nev-r leoovered, It stamls today as n
warninK of the fate that ia in store for
tin- Provlnoe, k ont Legislature* do
not steady themselves ami remember
in time that evils are often mote easily
prevented than removed, 1
Thete is respectable sentiment
enough amoug the American people
and tevvspaper- to keep Boer sympathisers in check, without putting Cau-
adian newsnapers t,i the neoeasity "i
working themselves into a paaaii u
whenever a meeting is he,d. An ex
chjnge from across the tnrder say- of
these gentry: "The 'pro' meetings
now being held in this oountry are uncalled for and foolish and the influence
they exert is nhout on a par with the
outcome of the resolution! adopted by
the thr-e tailors ol Toole) Street.
These meetings are not representative;
they simply give a few blatant demagogues an opportunity to Bbow sensible people what asses tbey are.''

Fur personal reasons some of those

who care mors to -ee the Canadian

pressed, that Mr. WatSOU was by no
