Will Pay $3.25 Per Day, With One Dollar
for Board-What Mine Managers
Say About Their Action.
The representatives of tho mines in
the Nelnon and Ymir districts, who
have been paving I'A to minors, deducting in some onses 75 cents and iu
others $1 por day for board, havo Instructed their superiutondouts that
alter Maroh 31, today, they will pay
a uniform wage of 13.25 to iniuuis,
deducting f 1 for board.
Thin chiinge will practically mean a
uniform nite of wage for miners em-
��� .."V .1 iu the mines in East Kootonay,
Slocati, Nelson and Ymir, and mny be
taken as a distinct ooucossiun on tbe
pnrt of the mine managers. This notion was taken nt n meeting of the
mine owners held somo time ugo iu
Nclior. It was intended thut the mnt-
ter shonld he kept qniot until tbe Information should bo mado pnblio
through the instructions sent to thn
superintendents. It leaked out, how-
i'ii'i, and a Miner mau heard of it yesterday aud ran it down, from two
Bourooe the information received by
Tbe Miner was confirmed.
Mr. J. Roderiok Robertson, manager of the London & British Columbia
Cold Fields, wns oalled upon late Inst
night by a Miuer mnn and naked ns to
the truth of tbe information   received.
"What yon have is oorroct," said
Mr. Robertson. "The mine rnaungors
have ilivnli.it to pay a uuiform wage
of $8.15, deducting fl for board. We
did not intend that it should bo
made public until it came ont through
our written instructions to the superintendents of the mini'*. Now that
yon have forretod it ont, however,
there is uo use denying it."
Mr. Robertson wns naked for more
eitended information in regard to tho
action of the mine owners but declined
to be interviewed further.
Captain Dnncau, of the Grnnito and
Poorinan mines, was also seen by Tho
Miner representative. He, too, admitted that the inino owners had
���Breed to pay tne |<ii25 B0���i8 0f
wagea, deducting fl for board.
"It ia practioally what I hav.i been
Paying ever since Inst summer." anid
the captain. "My men have been receiving $8 per day and wo have been do-
dating 75 oents for board.   Now  we
Will pay 18,80 per day and deduct $1
for hoard, leaving the net earnings of
each man just what they were before.
Under the scale of wages we have now
dooided to pay we will be paying
practically tbe same for the operation
of the Granite as we wonld have been
paying if we bad run right along with
out uny trouble. Tbe only difference
the whole affuir will make with ub
will bo an additional expense of |S).75,
which comes through an increase of 25
osnts per day to six mnokers, who
now receive $1.75 instead of $l. 50 as
formerly. When my men demanded
$). 25 por day and a deduction of (1 for
board instead of IS per day and 76
oeots for board, I told them 1 oonld
undoubtedly arrange it if they would
wait nntil I oould commuuioate with
the London ollice. They wonld not
wait, however, and quit work. After
today they will ba given what they
asked for tbeu and we should have no
further trouble. Bnt I will not be
able to start witb as big a foroe as before the Granite was shot down, owing to tbe fact that I did not know
wheu we would be able to start np
again and part of tho lower level baa
beeu filled with water. I also have
instructions from the Loudon board to
stop a gient deal of tbe development
work tbat I wns carrying on, for the
pica, ut at least. Iu the event of a sot-
lement of the difficulty I will be able
to put the men to work abont tbe middle of uext week. 1 will tbeu gradually incruuBe the work until the same
number of men as I had before are
employed. If all goes well I will also
open np more other properties. II the
trouble is not settled, however, I bave
everything all fixed to pull the paraps
out of tbe mine and let ber All npeven
if she should stay idle all aummor. I
speak with you freely tonight because
the information yon have seoured
wonld have become publio tomorrow
through other channels."
The Athabasca will be practically in
the same position as it is today. There
the miners are receiving $3 with 75
centa for hoard. Aftor today their
gross earnings will be increased 25
cents but their not earnings will remain tbe same.

ROBERTS
Reports That He Will Remain
at Bloemfontein Intended
to Deceive Boers.
Troops Under Dfummond are
Marching to Relief of
Kimberley.
(Sl'i:i I \l,s TO THK  lllM.lt.)
London, March 80.���The reports that
l.niil Roberts will remain at Bloem-
fqhtoin another month, are probably
for Boer consumption, and the recent
movement of troops and other indications point to preparations being
well ndvunced for a forward movement. Tho entire silence of the cables
this morning, is regarded as significant. The Boer telegrams announcing
the bombardment of Mafeking, Monday and Tuesday do not claim any success and this is accepted as proof that
they met with none, and hopes are entertained tbnt it may prove to have
been a final effort to reduce the place
hefiire the raising tbe siege. It is now
suggested that the apparent inactivity
of the British at Warrenton, is merely
designed to impress the Boers witb
the notion that they are checking the
Mafeking relief column,which in lenity is advancing in the western tour.
Color is lent to this view by tbe announcement thnt a column of three
thousand mounted troops, commanded

London, Mnrch 31. ���(4 a. m.)���Tbe
head of tbe army of Lord Roberts is
now about 21 miles north of Bloemfontein. It occupies a cluster of bills,
won from the Boers after a stiff fight,
iu whioh tbe British lost seven ofllcors
and one hundred men. The Boers had
been using these kopjes as a base for
marauding bands that have been beating up the oountry adjaoent to Bloemfontein, driving off_oattlo and forcing
non-resident Free Staters into the
ranks again. The enemy rnnst havo
been in considerable foroe, as Lord
Roberts sent 8,000 infantry and 3,000
cavalry against them. Lord Roberts'
progress to Pretoria will probably consist of a series of such forward move,
meats, in whioh Boer positions will be
attacked by a portion of the army advancing rapidly with wheel transports,
the main army ooming up as the railway is repaired. Lord Roberts is stripping tbo forces in the minor spheres of j
New York, March 30.���An interview
with President Kruger printed in Tho
World today, has attracted a great deal
of attention because of the variety of
topics discussed by tho President ef
the South Africnu Republic. It wns
granted on February 7 at Pretoria, and
Seoretary Belts was present. Tbe
oorrspondeut ssys: '^Mr. Krnger explained at length the efforts whicli tbe
British authorities made to seal up Delagoa Bay, und then told of tho message
he sent to Lord Salisbury concerning
it. He said he refused to hnve any
more correspondence with Mr. Chamberlain, but frequently cabled to Lord
Salisbury. In oue cablegram he asked
Lord Salisbury to allow food stuffs to
enter through Delagon Bay or they
would be oompelled to feod the 3,000
British prisoners in Pretoria ou maize
porridgo. Lord Saliabury did not reply bnt a mesango signed, "Chamberlain" explained that tho embargo on
food stuffs had boon raised three days
before. Mr. Kruger laughed boaitily
when he told that tbo Chamberlain
message wus telogruhed hack to Lord
Salisbury with the quory, "Is this
truer"' Tho Preaideut added: "We
have not heard from Mr. Chamberlain
since.''
Concerning the wor, President Kruger says: " We crossed the frontier in
Natal and Capo Colony, not becanso we
wantod to annex the laud but because
the farmers who owned the laud asked
to be taken under our protection. If
Ejgland will end the war and promise
to givo us our independence we will
return the land thus takou, but we
want to be free." Then turning to
the question of intervntion, the ProBi-
dent said : " We anticipate no assistance from auy nation, nor do wo ask
for it now thut the war is four nioutha
old. If some European natiou or
America interferes now, that nution
will ask for a share iu the spoils of
war, and there aro already enough
Governments represented in South Africa. I have not asked President Mc-
Kinley to interfere in tho war, nor
have 1 sent n message to bim by any
of tho Americana who hnve returned
to tho United Statea recently, Mi.
Roitz may havo doue ao but"��� Mr.
Belts here Interrupted and  said:   "l
do not remember that I gave a message to the former American Consul
bere. I am positive that I sent no official message to tbo American President
or to tlio Secretary of State.''
On the subject ot destroying the gold
mines at Johannesburg, Mr. Kruger
declared that the Boers would uot
harm a shillings worth of property.
He declared that there was oue and
only oue unfulfilled prophecy in the
Bible and npon that he based his hopes
of suooess in this wb.\ He read tho
passage, which was Ezokiol XXXIX,
1-7, referring to the English as the
'People of God," in tbo quotod sorip-
ture, and the Boers as tho "Villagers
of Israel."

London,Mnrch 30.���The Gazette this
evening contains dispatches from Rear
Admiral Harris,commanding the British Sonth African station, reporting
the proceedings of the naval brigades

They throw little light on tho battles
hut show that the courages and determination nf tho unval men were beyond
praise and thai their assistance to the
military authorities was invaluable.
Lieutenant Archibald Deas.of tbo third
class cruiser Philomel, in the report
of his proceeding with four naval guns
nt Grast Pun where he was detailed to
attack two stroug kopjes ou either side
of tho ruilroad, relates how after two
hours shelling he reoeivod orders to
retire. He continues: "The Koynl
Artilleiy on the right bad already

Boersjiaving got onr range nccuratoly
were potiriug in on us such nn effeotive .-111.11'111 I fire that I judged it to le
impoHsihle to rnny out the order, without leaving the guns or suffering veiy
heavy losses. I therefore, continued
to lire ou tho Boer guns with such
effect us to pot tbem out of action,first
one and then another. For 15 to 20
minutes at a time their shells burst
with the utmost accuraoy. Our guns
and nnimuniti.-.n tmlloy were spattered
nil over with shrapnel balls,but owing
to my system of making nil bands lie

had only six wounded, when nfter nn

gallantry of both the sailors and tho
marines."

teiu correspondent nf The Daily Chronicle telegraphing Thursday, March 29,
says: "President Kruger's latest proclamation warns the women and children to leave Bloemfontein within live
days as he intends to Lombard and destroy the city nud to shoot the burgh-
ors whom he captures thero."
Vigorons measures have been taken
by the liiitish to harass marauding
hands of Transvaal Boers. The latter
are resorting to guerilla methods
chiefly against Free Stateia who refuse
to join Kruger."

PEACE, WITH HONOR.
The mine owners of the Nelnon district have decided to accept the scale
of wages that war adopted as a compromise agreement at Sandon a few
weeks ago, aud on tho strength of
whioh tbe principal mines in that
neighborhood have resumed active
operations. This is a most important
announcement, as the whole region
hereabout is directly and deeply interested in the conditions it ie calculated
to affect. Whother it will be claimed
as a vioctory for the Unions we do not
know, but we under stand that the step
is taken as a voluntary coucesnion on
the port of tbe owners and in tbe earnest desire to put au end to the situation that bos wrought much mischief
to tho community generally.
Beginning on Monday next the mine
managers who haTe been identified
with tho Association will pay |3.2fiper
day or* eight hours. Tbat is equivalent
tut I. in; lor a dny of ten hourx, the largest wage paid, we believe, on the continent. The Miner rejoices with tbe
general publio at tbe prospect thuB
opened for au immediate settlement of
all trouble:, between employer and employed, but it feels bound to say that
in niiro dug to this liberal wage tbo
managers have assnmed a heavy responsibility in view of tbo coiiHidern-
tion due to their Htock'iolderB. How-
evor, tbis in not a matter with whicb

lis going on tbnt   simply spells disaster
to   any   Cotton   party.      However   re
Igarded today, the lime will soon an he
when it will be rrcngnised as a movement that iq irresistible   in   itH   force.
The next elections in this Province nre
; to be fought on   straight   party   lines.
We do uot say that nil electors will fall
. in and take aid's, bnt   those   wbo  do
\ not will be too insignificant   in   numbers to command   respect.    What  tbe
j Conservatives   intend to do Mr. Cotton
! ought   already   to know.    He  and his
few   friends   in   Vancouver,   and   the
Adullamites   in   Victoria,  may   stand
aloof, bnt they are far indeed :rom constituting   the   Conservative   purty   of
British Columbia.    Is Mr.    Cotton   so
poor a reader of   open   signs  as not to
be able to   inform   himself   tbat   Mr.
Martin   is   collecting   abont him   tbe
great bulk nf the Liberal vote,and tbnt
he is planning to  appeal   to the country as the leader of the   Liberal party?
Mr.    Martin   alone    would    force    a
straight party issne.even if the weight
ol Conservative   opinion and influence
was not   in   favor of   it as the   saving
policy for this  Province.    Mr.   Cotton
can   no   more   resist   thiB   movement
than could thn ant the elephant on tbe
occasion   of   tbeir   leaviug   the   Ark.
And in attempting  to  do so he is disabusing the minds of many who   have
heretofore  regarded   him   as an astute
politician.    If  wise  be will bury   his
manifesto on   Deadman's   Island   aud
take his place in the procession.

At his recent Victoria meeting Mr.
Martin said that while he was in power it would not be necessary for railways to hire Liberal lawyers (meaning
BoJwell, Gregory, aud Davis), to secure justice from a LiBeral Government. That is very likely true. If
tho railways! will send aReuts to Mr.
Martin, with power to arrange for
"���500 a mile for eto. etc," tbey will
get justice and more too, and il not
they will get no justice at all. Mr.

Described by a Noted Author.
The developments of the war in South Africa, its serious conflicts, the deeds of heroism of its participants, the great massing of Boer Armies and the unprecedented forward,
movement of British troops to the Cape, coupled with a universal desire for information
concerning a country cf which very little is known, have intensified public interest in the
subject to an extent hitherto unequalled. With characteristic enterprise, this paper will
supply the demand for South African Literature that present conditions have created. To
this end we now offer our readers the first number of a magnificent art series to be issued
in weekly parts under the title of "Qlimpses of South Africa in Peace and War." Illustrating and describing the current military events of the day and the sights and the
scenes throughout South Africa by aid of camera, pencil and pen, presenting a pictorial

MAILTIME
What II*ppeni In th�� Courtry Wh��
tbe Letter* Arrive.
Did you ever flee the mail arrive?
Tho row of unkempt borMI gnawing
the hitching ruck before Wise'b store
nml Impatiently kicking at disturbing
flies testifies tu tho fact that thu mail iu
due to arrive.
The tloochlng groups of jean clad befogs, tho unwonted activity and importance of the stiff haired statiou agent
nnd the expectant alertness of the young
and suuhoiiueted persons in tho farm
M'ugou all add to the impression.
The station Is much the same as other
stations. Its knife scarred walls are decorated with campaign lithographs, legal
notices and advertisements of navy to-
bucco.
A platform of sun warped planks extends around two sides, beginning at two
steps and a soap box nnd terminating at
the UNiial "jumping off" place.
Upon the platform u lean cur Ih slowly
baking iu tho midday sun, stretched at
full  length.
The agent, as Is patent to all observers,
pOIMSiei leather suspenders and u thorough and complete acquaintance with every man, woman, child aud dog iu Gil*
mer county.
"Yander sho comes!"
The blacksmith across the road leaves
a half shod mule and conies to the door
of his dingy shop, wiping his grimy
handy upou the sides of his leather apron;
the young women in the muddy wagon
remove their suubounets aud smooth rebellious wisps of hair, giggling with excitement.
The loafers jump from platform and
barrels, close their pocket knives and
atraiu their eyes down the track.
A rapidly approaching column of
smoke is seen around th�� curve back of
Henderson's woods; a small boy, far
dowu the dusty [tike, leans over the dash
of his rattling wagon and belabors his
gaunt horse with a stick.
Two short, metallic shrieks, the clangor of a bell, and the fast mail whizzes
past with a jarring nimble of wheels, a
streak of varnished woodwork and glittering glass aud metal, leaving behind it
a dust tilled vacuum.
The blinking countrymen, holding fast
to hats, gaze after its quivering rear platform with awe.
The brass bound mail pouch hurtles
through the air, skates along the cinders
beside the truck aud brings up against
the red cattle shoot, where it is pounced
upon by three small boys.
With it the agent plows across the
dusty road, followed by the crowd; the
cling clink of the blacksmith is resumed,
aud one's Impression of the station re-
solveB itself into a vista of shimmering
heat .waves* whitewash and gleaming
rails and hot yellow dust.
The mail has come.���Chicago Record.
The Wrong Gliirm.
"Some years ago," said a man, "when
the book *As In a Looking Glass' was the
rage, there was considerable outcry
against the w*ork on the score thut it
was immoral. This led my friend's wife
to instruct her spouse on no account to
read the work. He, as was natural,
rushed down town straightway and purchased the forbidden volume. At dinner
that night he said:
" 'Well, Sally, I don't see why you
didn't want me to read that "Looking
Glass" book, for, although I've read
through every page, 1 must say I
couldn't find anything out of the way
with it,' and he produced the book he
had purchased, which turned out to be
Lewis Carroll's 'Through the Looking
Glass, and What Alice Found There.'"
"I can match that story in kind," said
his friend, "for I remember nbout the
same time a small niece of mine went
to church, aud on being asked the text
on her return home, said it had boen 'As
In a Lookiug Glass'! Subsequent Inquiry showed the actual text given out
was: 'For now we see through a glass,
darkly; but then face to face.'���I Cor.
xui, 12."
When Golnff to Bed.
No matter how busy one may be it Is
quite possible always to attend to one's
toilet at night. One should not simply
drop her clothes and tumble into bed, else
neither oneself nor the clothes will look
attractive in the morning. Hnve plenty
of hot water and a dash of eau de cologne
and give your face a thorough laving.
The result will bo as refreshing ns an
hour's sleep. Brush the hair for 20 minutes. It will be glossier and thicker for
the trouble, and your nerves will be
soothed by the process. Then, after
the exercise, robe yourself in a warm
dressing gown and drink n glnss of hot
milk, weak cocoa or even hot water, eating a biscuit or bit of toast if you like.
When the small supper is finished, you
will be ready to go to sleep without nny
insomnia cure, and in tho morning you
will waken refreshed and thoroughly in
good humor with yourself aud tho world.
���Woman's Life.
Hotla Wnter For Huniror.
Doctors ure using carbonic water (plain
soda water) to relieve hunger in the eases
of patients to whom food cannot bo given. Tht! carbonic acid gas lessens the
sense of hunger, not because it has any
sustaining qualities* but because it presses ou the solar plexus, and the solar
plexus, besides being useful when one fid-
low wants to knock out another follow
man. is tho seal of hunger. The sense of
gnawing and "goneness" and of ravenous hunger arises from irritation in
this part of the body, nud the carbonic
ncid gas often cheeks tho symptoms ab-

of which deceased was always one  of

his friends, made many remarks about,
the probability of his being blown up.
and to his  fellow   minstrels   he  more
than  onoe  said:     "Hoys   when  I'm
blown sky high, I want you to  attend
my funeral iu   your   white   hats  and
sticks draped with   crepe." Little did
he think that so very  soon   the   minstrels would be in a position  to  carry
out his jesting suggestion.    They   will
wear their white hats  and   it ia probable that they will supply   the   muHic
. at the church.   The body will be  conveyed from  the   Knights of' Pythias
Hall at II p. m. to St.    Paul's   Presbyterian  Church,     from    whence    the

THE  MOUNTAIN SPIRIT.
(Written bv a 12-year old Girl.)
Upon tho mountain fur uway,
Where vory few men have trod,
And snow   falls  deep iu the wiuter
time
And covers the ferny sod,
Aud icicles hang from  the tall   tree
tops,
Aud birds aud beasts are asleep,
The mountain spirit sings her song
As she sits on the topmost peak.
ISlio sings ot gold and silver,
And many more things she knows.
She knows whore   the hidden   treasure
Lies beneath tho fallen snows.

A Shareholder Who Has  a Vory High
Opinion ol the Property.
Mr. Geo. W.   Tnylor. the locator  of
tho Joker mine, the principal property
ol Camp Mauslield returned   yesterday
fiom a tcip to the mine.    Mi. Taylor,
of oonrHe, hns alwnys   had a vory high
opinion of the property bnt his infection of thiB   week hitH led bin   to   he
lieve. as do all thoso   who   inspect the
Joker, that it U a  very lich property.
He was Been   by  a  representative   of
The Miner and   questioned  nH   to   his
inspection of Ihe  property.    It  "K^es
in very particular in   tbo main  with
a descripation of this property that appeared in The Miner a few wooks bro.
The drifts have now   been   continued
through 800 feet  ol ore nnd   a   wiuste
and upraise have both been in ore, tho
quality of which has been  proved   by
frequent assays as running extremely
high.   The  ledge has been shown  by
crosscuts   to  be !13 feet wido  nnd   the
pay sbnte has widened from three feet
un the surface to six feet in the drifts.
Aocording to Mr.Tnylor the only intelligent scheme of development that will
ever bIiow the  Joker   up   to its   best
advantage with the   smallest expenditure of money  will   be   to run n long
tunnel from the  Bertha olaini on   the
lake below tbo Joker.    Suoh a  tunnel
would aid tn  expose   nn immense  ore
body, whose   vnluo has   already   been
demonstrated and wbich wonld   prove
the Joker  to  be one of   the  greatest

Viotoria, 11. C, Mnroh 110,-As fnr
as tho Island is concerned party linos
evidently an not going to obtain. In
Houth Viotoria,which D. M. Eberl, M.
P. P., has represented for several sessions, tbe farmers will hnve a candidate of their own, in all probability
the nhoioe falling on   George Sampler.
Now Cowichau is following in the
wake. Today 0. H Dickie, of Dun-
oun, announces in The Times, his candidature for that riding. His action is
the result of a petition presented hy
a number ol residents of Cowichnn.
He states that while agreeing with
some of the planks of Mr. Martin's
platform,he will not support nny party
of whioh he is the leader, and thinks
that the interests of the Province will
be bast served by relegating him to
private life. Mr. Dickie is a Conservative and the senior partner in the firm
of Dickie & Loune, loggers and contractors of Cowichan.
Hon. Mr. Yates is still the Bole representative of the Administration at

Bethen, of White Horse, Yukon Terri-
tnry.bas been appointed a Notary Publio for the Yukon Territory.
Kaoul Riufrett, Montreal, Dominion
Land Surveyor, has been appointed
commissioner to enquire into and report upon certain claims to lands in
the Yukon.
In tbe Senate today, Mills moved a
Fei-ond reading of the bill to provide
for the pay of the contingents. He
said tbe bill was one of groat oonse-
qnenoe because it was representative of
a new phnw* between the oentre aud
tho dependencies of the Empire. Ho
was very fnr from saying that Canada
onght to become involved in every
petty war iu which tho Motheiand
might become involved. Bat unity
was growing and by showing their
readiness as they had done to bear
their Bhare in the defence of the interests of tbe Empire and to assist the
Empire win .. theso interests wero vital, thoy attracted the notice of the
world. We thought England was re.
sponeible to some gieat extent for the
extension of things by commencing the
independence of the Transvaal, at
times statesmen had thought the Empire had become largo enough. They
thought tbo Free Trade "Open Door"
wonld attract commerce and render
unnecessary n further acquisition of
territory. English dimmer��� bud control comnierciuily of all the coast of
Africa, south of tbe equator, and it
was urged thai thev hnd nil the advantage, without the it-sponil.ilities of (Jov-
ernment after  a   partition  of Afrioa,
England became alive to the situation.
Everyone   who    would    examine   the
dispati'hes since IhS-l  wnnld   see   this.
The Moers undertook to trek abroad and
named   friction   all   along   thn   line.
Beohnanaland,   Rhodesia   and    other
tracts were acquired iu order to pre
servo peace. The British rule in the
north would have been greatly crippled had not this heen dune. The
Boers adopted the view thnt the whole
of Sonth Afrioa must become a Boer
territory. From the vory beginning
the intention was to oust the British
authority whonever Rn opportunity
offered.
Tho Hon. Mr. DeBonchervillo asked
Were they Independent. The Hon. Mr.
Mills said they are not. He nviewed
tho history of the Free Stnte and the
Transvaal leading up to the independence of the Transvaal and thence to
tho war, showing how the Suez Hallway of Her Majesty was rncugni/.ed.
He tiaoed the treatment of the Uit-
Inndors anil tho oommandoring of natives and British subjects, which was
all oontrary to the agroement. They
took away the right to learn tho English tongue. Ho pictured the dlsabiii-
tie. of the British in tho Transvaal,
comparing them with   equal tights in
(Jape Colony, Men were robttsd, flogged
and were prohibited trom learning
their own lanuguges. Ths end was
war and tbe invasion of Cnjie Colony. He conld not un.lerstnud hov.
anyone could pretend to sympathize
with the Boer rights and tho Boer's
love of liberty. Tbey tried to make
better hewers of wood and drawers of
water of the Boer population. The
Hon. Mr. Allnn said a dl.tlngni.hed
writer bad onoo told him Canada
wonld he the centre rf a vast Republic
from Labrador to Cape Corinth. He
had replied that Canada was too much
attached to the Motherland and would
seek to bo druwn nearer and nearer.
The Hon. M. Bornico could nor allow
this bill to receive its unanimous vote
without speaking on the behalf of 11)0, -
000 souls composing the French Arcadians of tho Lower Province. The
Krenoh had been accused of disloyalty
hnt of course thut had been disproved.
When the municipal council met last
fall the question was raised in one or
two places whether the council would
help the Canadian boys goiug to Africa, but notbiag more camo of it. In
the French Arcadian municipality of
Vent, a vote was moved by the Arcadians and carried unanimously nnd supported in solid CB8h. They were all
ono in this matter throughout Canada.
The hill was read a second time and
taken to the committee of tbe whole.
Mr. Bernier wbb in the chair, the bill
having been considered, tbe committee
reported and read it u   third time.
James D. McGreggor, Dawson City,
Chief License Inspector has been
appointed a commissioner to udmiuis-
er oaths and to take nud receive nflidn-
vits, declarations nnd affirmations concerning any proceeding bad, or to be
had, in the Territory   in Yukon.
In connectiun witb the movement
to get up a monument for Canadian
soldiers from the Ottawa district, who
fell in South Africa, the brioklnyers
have offered instead of subscribing, to
build it free.
Ottawa, March 80.���Sir Charles Topper resumed his debate on the Bu.lget
today. In regard to the preferential
tiado he snid that it never had benefited Canadinn buyers or British dealers.
Tho British Government lost more
by the denunciation of German nnd
Belgian treaties than it gained by
Canadian preference His plan was
frr a scheme of mter-Imperial preferential trade. He ooncluded by moving
the following amendment. "That this
House is of the opinion that a system
ol mntnal trade preference between
Great Britain and Canada and the Colonies would greatly stimulate increased production in and commerce between these countries and would thus
promote and maintain the unity of
tbe empire and that nothing which
fulls short of the completu nalizatiou
of suoh a policy should be considered
as final or satisfactory."
This is tbe amendment which Mr.
Foster gave notice of some time ago.
Mr. Paterson, Minister of Customs, re-
pliod. He gave an analysis of the good
benefilH of preferential tariff and quoted a long list of articles to show how
the reduction of geuerul tariff had aided farmers. It was a British tariff
and a consumers tariff. As to the increased expenditure, it involved no inorease to the burdens of tho Canadian
people. He calculated n saving to
farmers, under the tariff, of iJIO2,:i00
ou binder twine, tll'li.SSfi on barbed
wire, |12,980 on galvanized iron, and
l-HJ.OOO on cream separators. The saving to peoplo of customs duties last
year on importations was IS,888,000.
Mr. Prior moved an adjournment of
the debate for Clark Wallace-.
