No one has ever thought of s-ri-
iinsly disputing tbat the Right-Hour
law was slipped through the Legislature without allowing the members
au opportunity to consider it. Neither
iu behalf of Mr.Cotton.who intinduced
the amending Bill, nor of Mr. Hume,
who was the putative father of il, has
any one ventured to deny that a
trick was played upon the House in
regard to the measure. Huob is and
has heen thn understanding throughout the Province, yet we Imagine there
ure few who have realised to the l'nll
the Btealthlness with which the eight-
hour provision was made law. It was
brought home to us in 11 striking
manner by the remark of a member
the other day, who was discussing the
mutter in 11 speech on tho Address.
He was interrupted by a member of
the Government with the question,
" Did you not vote for it." And his
reply was: "'I suppose, Mr. Speaker,
1 must have. 1 certainly do not know
of it."'
Many other members as frunkly honest as this one could say the same.
They did not know. It was late at
night, at the fag end of the session. A
number of measures were being hurried through. No notice of this
amendment had been given, nor did it
appear in the printed Bill. It was
culled in its turn hv the Chairman of
the Committee of the Whole, the short
amendment was hurriedly read and as
hurriedly declared curried, and in the
brief space of a minute or two, With
tired and impatient members voting
for they knew not. wlint, a few words
passed into a law that bus paralysed
the greatest industry of the Province
and has produced au angiy division
hetween olusses that has done and is
doing incalculable harm.
The Hcandal of all this is painfully
evident to the people ; do not the mem-
ben of the Legislature yet realise itV
Mr. Booth's candid confession should
have a sobering effeot on all of them,
and if sensible Of their responsibilities
as men to whom hnve heen entrusted
t.!io affairs of the Province, they will
reconsidei the situation and with tin Ir
best judgm-nt decide to amend or re
jieal the law and thus undo the mischief they so recklessly let loose a year
The Greenwood Miner says: "Where
Joe Martin fell down was in accepting tin- services of James Dunstnuir in
going from Vancouver to Victoria by
speoial boat and train In order to take
part iu the opening of the House. Had
he waited and gone over on the Islander in the regular way, he would,
in all probability, have had the support of MaoPberson, of Vancouver, aud
the sympathy at least of a large element of the labor party. On lucouut
of his apparent alliance with the
Dunsmnire, whose name is an abhor-
rence to the labor party, be lias lost
MaoPberson, and has estranged the
labor organisations. Martin's fault as
a politician has always been his precipitancy ; and hy another too quick
stop he has lost his Ins. opportunity in
B. C." There is probably truth in all
of this; but it speaks little for our
good sense and discrimination as a people if a man's reputation is to be left
'0 the mercy of an accident. It was
only by availing himself of the Duns-
muir conveyances that Mr. Martin, by
any possibility, could reach the House
in time for that first division.

And little Greece, too. She made a
sad mess of it when she drew the
sword 011 Turkey u few years ago; lint
she is valiant still, aud full of sympathy with tho right. The Hritish
Legation at Athens is overwhelmed
with individual oilers to fight the
Boers; tbe University there has telegraphed its sympathy to Oxford at
Hritish losses; a memorial service has
been held at the naval station of
Poros, and the Cretans at the Piraeus
have offerod to furnish a corps of 1,000
men. No, Great Britain is not isolated. Greece wonld not count as much in
winning battles, perhaps, hut otherwise her sympathy is more to ho desired than that of. say.  Russia.
Some of those war correspondents
are wonderful fellows. One of them
saw an "ironical laugh" playing
around Cronje's month during the progress of the ha'tle of Mr.gerslontiin.
The correspondent was no doubt well
to the roar of the British forces, and
("rnnje was presumably far enough in
the rear of lim Poets to he safe, yet
the delicate lines of nn "ironical
laugh' could lin distinguished nt tbo

would have heen more to the purpose if
he had seen these barbed  wire   fences.

Yukon revelations Put Mr. Tiirte's

Canadian commerce is jcoupying a

the Wellnnd Canal, whioh gives access from Luke liiie to Lake Ontario.

White House Reception to the Diplomatic
Corps--To Abolish Duties on Paper,
Wood Pulp, Etc.
(Special Correspondence of The Minei)
Washington, D. O., .lan. 12.��� "Winter
gaieties follow each other thick und
fast in this city. The event of the
week bus been the reception at the
White House to tbe diplomatic corps.
Lord Pauncefote, the British Ambassador, was tbe liist to be received. He
wore bis gorgeous court uniform of
black broadoloth and gold lace, and
was accompanied hy tbe Indies of bis
household and the gentlemen of bis
Lady Pauncefote wore blue mirror
velvet flounced with sil-ei-spangled
tulle, and white tip iu her hair. Tbe
MiSM's Pauncefote followed, all exquisitely attired. On Tuesday, Lord
Pauncefote gave n dinner to Colonel
Charles S. Denby, Those who dined
with the Ambassador, besides Colonel
uud Mrs. Denby,were the Chinese Minister and Mine. SVu, Cienernl Corbin,
Oeneral and Mrs. .1. B. Henderson,
Baron Speck Von Sternberg, and the
Brazilian Minister and wife.
The notion of the Transvaal Government in refusing to permit U. S. Consul Stanley Hnllis to act na British
representative at Pretoria dnring the
war, is taken as a proof either of the
invincible ignorance of tho Boera in
the nnittei of diplomatic procedure, or
as u species of snub to this country for
Hie open sympathy of the administration with Great Britain. It seems,
however, that the Boe.is do not go further than to refuse to permit Mr. Hnllis to claim the name of British representative, but do permit him to do
everything that he would bo entitled
to do under Hint claim. In other
words, if tho matter is rightly understood in this city, they grant tbo thing
uml merely deny the name. Remembering the storm of indignation towards Prance and Germany that swept
over this country on account of their
upen sympathy with Soain during
our late war, very few Americans
blame the Trnnsvaal for feeling more
or less bitterly toward uh. How the
Americans regard tho struggle is
shown preliy accurately by un interview recently given out by Mnjor .1.
M. Burke, of 'Wild West" fume. "It
is characteristic" be said, "of om
people to take thu part of the under
nog, nud hence the feeling manifested
in many sections In meetings called to
express sympathy with the Afrikander!. Getting away from this, it. must
be admitted thut our ioteissts are
hound up In tho lnniiitaineiicc of the
piOBtige of tho British Empire. English success, for instinco, means the
completion of the Capo and Cairo
Railway, ns well uh tbe building of
thousands of miles of railway elsewhere,  ull   nf which will call   for  the
pnrobaie of iron mul steel and rolling
stock from the United Status. England is the advance agent of civilization and wherever she goim her policy-
is that of progren mul developmnt"
Thn Supreme Court of the United
Statu luiH recently rendered a decision
in the case of the Canada Sugar Refining Company Igllnit the Insurance
Company ol North America, Involving
the insurance on the prufltH of a our-
go Of siirgui" shipped from the Philip
pines and   partially lost by shipwreck.
Tho Circuit Conn of Ap|ieuls held
that us the cargo was not a total loss
Hi ire could bo no recovery on the policy.    This decision was reversed.
Tin- inoveiii' nt to aboliHh duties on
poper, wood pinp, nun so forth, in
whioh Canada is so much interested,
continues to   gather force,    The  price
of ordinary newipapei bus been so
Increased by the test tbut it has become a most serious ninticr with country as well us city journal-*. Con-
iriictH recently made by Now York pa
pers are said to have heen at 2',, cents
fm large eiinlracls, and   II1.,   cents  for
hi nit11 ones.   Certain   Canadian mills
have offered, it is said, to soil in hiiiiiII
lots at 2.0 cents plus the tariff duly.
The bond of the Washington   Cuunty

od merchandise In bond and merchandise in tranilt to, from, and through
the Dominion of Canada, bus been up

ports of dustiiiutlon specified in the
entry nnd manifesting   each particular
cane.   Wh.re transportation is  made
tinned to a fair rate of interest on the
cost of the canals, they would be prohibitory, But there is now a prospect
of better results. "With the completion of the new Soulanges Canal."
says the News, "a depth of 14 feet of
water is secur?d from tlie upper lakes
to Montreal, and n determined effort
will be made tn draw export traffic in
this direotion in competition with the
lake and railway routes to United
States ports Ii appears pretty clear
that the nine-foot Krie Canal cannot
he expected to compete with the 14-1'oot
Canadian route, especially as the latter
has the further advantage that for a
large part ol the distance the navigation is in a lieep and brond river,whi re
full speed is permissible. "

"My advice to yon is to return tn
your homes without delay, and remain
peaceful till the war is over. Those
who do this before the lllib will, as fur
as possible be protected as regards
yourselves, your families, and property from confiscation, looting, and
other penalties, to whioh those remaining under arms will he subjected when
'invasion takes place. Secret agents
' will communicate to me the names of
those who do. Those who do not nvcil
themselves of the terms now offered,
may be sure that their property will
be confiscated when the troops arrive.
Each man must he prepared tu hand
ovci his rifle and 150 rounds of ammunition. The above terms do not apply
to officers aud members of the Stunts
Artillery, who may surrender ur prisoners of war nt any time, nor to rebels
on British territory. It is,' probable
that ray force will shortly take otiVn-

deter iheir submission till too late, I
can offer no promise. They will have
only themselves tn blame fur injury
