All tbo prisoners were paraded yesterday afternoon, Tbey extended in a
long, trailing line across the plain and
as far as possible were arranged in
commandos. The Free Staters were
kept separated from the Traiisvanlers.
The look upon the faces of the men as
they passed made it impossible to arrive at any other conclusion than that
they were all overjoyed at their release from the daily hell of shell and
shot, which tbey had been experiencing lately. Many not even took the
trouble to conceal their delight from
the soldiers gunrding them. They
ohatted freely with the British, discussing tho different battles in whioh
they had fought. All the prisoners
have an intense admiration for the
bravery and pluck of the Highlanders
and they freely confess that tbey live
incapable of the dash and go of the
British. Kvery man who was nil' duty
visited the Boer laager yesterday and
the crowd of curious Tommies spent
thu day iu searching every nook and
corner. After what might prove useful to the army had heen secured the
soldiers were allowed tu take whatever
thoy liked. The men curried off olotli-

ammunition   for    rities fell into the
hands of the British ns well as damaged Maxim guns. Boers of 16 years
were among the wounded. The prisoners had not heard of the surrender of

Ex-Premier Semlin Replies to
Governor's Reasons for
the Redistribution Bill and there wns
a lather lively debate on it, although
very little new matter oame out, Major Beattie read for Ilm ptess a statement thnt the British Government had
applied to Australia for more troops
and that on Canada being asked for
troops -lie replied that she could send
ten thousand. Laurier replied that he
had heard the statement lust night
from the lea lev of tbe Opposition, The
answer he gave then was that there
wns no irulii in the report. Sir Charles
Topper suggested that the troops be
withdrawn from the Yukon. He was
opposed to the men being sent there iu
the Hist instance. Laotiei 'n reply
said that the presence of the troops in
the Yukon had a good deal to do with
the peace and good order that existed
there. One half cf the military force
was withdrawn from the Yukon lust
year and when the spring arrived he
would be willing to consider a suggestion of withdrawing tho remainder bnt
the present wns not the proper time to
do so.
Mulock spoke on the second reading j
of the Redistribution Bill. He explained that thn bill was to do away
with the wrong that bad been inflicted
against the Liberal party in 1888 and
repeated in 1898. The present bill
was a fair oue and might meet with
the favorable consideration of tbe
House. Sir Charles Tupper said that
his views of last .vein against the bill
held good this year. He accused the
Government of bringing in the lull to
assist in keeping them from being
swept liom power. Ho touched on
tbe elections in Prince Kdwnrd Island
and then wenl westward to Manitoba
to show the Government was losing
the oonfidenoe of the ooontry. Mr.
McMullen said that others uf the Opposition talked of the Government not
having the OOOfldenoe of the people but
the by-elections did not show this.
Ont of 45 bye clejtions, thn Opposition only succeeded In carrying three
of them. He proceeded to charge the
leader of the Opposition with unmanly conduct in his political lights.
MoMolleO annnsed the leader of the
opposition with having violated all
the commandments,    lmt  be  would

considered out of order. Mr. Wallace

Dunsmuii. and the occusion was the
recent prorogation. For several days
past Mr. Duusmuir's name has been
associated with ihat of Mr. Joseph
Martin. These two gentlemen were
reported to have been summoned to a
confeience with the J.ienteuant-Gover-
nor, to consider tbe situation resulting
from the dismissal of the Semlin Government. The association was so incongruous that it appealed at once
and sharply to tbe pnblio notice. Pen
pie were surprised at it, and when
ihey began to look back and take account of some other little events thM
bad happened, Mr. Dunsmuir was
suspected of having joined iu tbe in*
trigu is that brought Mr. Martin to tho
front as Premier. But in the light of
that speech, this could scarcely hnve
Wbeu Mr. Dousmuir rose in the
House and delivered himself of thnt
one word, "Gentlemen," every mem*
ner present walked out of the Chamber. His Honor bad entered to pro-
rogue the Legislature. To do this it is
necessary to address the House, which
he proceeded to do in the customary
maimer: "Mr. Speaker and members
of tbe Legislative Assembly." Bnt
Mr, Speaker was not present, neither
was there a siuglo member of the
House. Beside tbe Governor and his
retlnne, the only person on tho floor
was Mr. Martin, who a few hours be-
lore hud ceased to bn n member. There
was thus uo House to address or pro-
rogiu. and uot vithstanding thu cere-
mouy which the Governor carried
through to thu end there is grave doubt
whether the Legislature is uot stilt in
Tbe history of British Parliamentary
government will be searched in rain
for anything in thu least approaching
the disgraceful aud scandalous situation into which a'i'airs at Victoria
have been precipitated by the Lieu-
tenant-Governor. He has outraged
every prinoiple of responsible governmeut, aud taken into his own hands
absolute power to carry out bis own
wil), in .i,.in.iiee of tho constitution
and of the recognised rights of the people as represented iu Parlinmeot. It
is tbe man Mcluues who roles aud
governs today, aud uot tbe people or
their representatives. The privileges
of Parliament are ignored, trampled
upon, treated with contempt. It was a
I.rave protest the House mado, taking
its cue from Mr. Dunsmuir, but it
would have been better if tbe Speaker,
supported by the members, bad refused the Governor admittance and boldly
detied bun. The same purpose has prob-
ably been served, however, for public
attention and Indignation have been
aroused to this unbearable scnudnl,
and the people in their wrath are
-nong enough to vindicate their rights
against such puny oppressors as Lieu-
tenant Governor Mclunes. He knows
now. if he did not kuow two days ago,
that be cannot make 11 discredited poll
lician Premier of this Province, even
although a favorite of his own, iu deli
mice .if publio sentiment, Mi. Maitin
may Is- retained, aud may even be
given a dissolution, hut that would
only be tn proloug tbe scandal. The
Governor may be dull as well as arbitrary, hut he .-iin 11..1 misunderstand
ihe meaning of tho House's contemptuous icpudintinu of his action, und unless he has taken leave of his muses
entirely he will retire Mr. Maitin uud
ask some onn who has a known foi-
inn lug to nndcitake the twsk of form
iug a < I..v. run,, nt. If be is not to
provoke more violent protest than any
that has yet come to bis ears, this is
the course be will lake Should some
other Dunsmuir rise in his indignation
and say "Gentlemen." it will not be
the House but the   I'ruviin.    that will
be aroused.
It is reported from Ottuwa that a
geneial election will follow closely on
prorogation. A report from Ottawa is
as liable as not to be without the
slightest foundation. We require to
get at its origin before we can estimate its value. This one is vouched
for in the correspondence of The Winnipeg Tribcne, with whioh the editor
of that paper, who is a member of Parliament, is supposed to have confidential relations. It is quite prohnble,
therefore, that an enrly dissolution is
contemplated, iu whioh case tho party
lenders all over tbe oountry should begin to stir themselves. Tbe session
should not last beyond May, and Mjy
will soon be here.

wiili n masterly eye to detail and u prop-

Slroinberg was wondering whether he

Certainly his mind must have been

anil tbo chanrAa of bis lieini; lute und
keeping her waiting, uud the chance of
bis ever being m'eepted ns her escort���
ur iu any oilier capacity��� if he did keep

When he approached the door of that
saei.tl dwelling, the hired carriage wits
���tending there, looking aa if it might
bars been waiting an hour.
"Am I lutoV" he suid nervously lo
Clara, n�� soon as she appeared, wiih her
cloak over one arm.
"1 don't know," snid Clara wilb a
rather severe accent, "but judging from
your manner 1 should think you must he.
1 lliuuglit you always kept cool?"
"I .la," Stromberg protested earnestly.
"1 make a point of it. Only, you seo���yes,
1: wants live minutes of 8 by my watch."
It never pnys to get rnttlcd," Clara
quoted, in an aggravating calm, even
voice. "I'lease help ine on with my wrap.
There You don't think they'll shut us
out of tha opera house, do you? It's a
little crooked ut tbo buck, isn't It? That's

That was > happy onion, to begin wiih.
and n�� the evening wore on everylhing

"Tliank you so much for taking rue,"
Clara said, when he left her thai night.
"I've enjoyed myself so much. Shall 1

Good night"
Stromberg wis set a-dreamlng. He
built castles In tbe air, with Mrs. Marshall's dunce right at the threshold of all
'bo ' astles. Hi; would meet Clara at Hint
���laueo und niuke his .way witb her trl-

But ll was ten duys from the date of the

"���>' Invited kirn, whu
sbn had been so charmingly cordial tliea
last time they bad met, merely seeking
.listruction, not consolation.
He certainly found none of tbe latter
article. A small, wiry man, with uu
eager milliner, Roberts by name, wus in
the smoking room when Stromberg came
iu. Hu wus a man whom Stromberg had
often exhorted to keep cool.
"You look blue, Stromberg," said Koberts. "Never mind, you'll bo guy enough
this time tomorrow evening. It's going
lo be a glorious affair."
"Y'cs, but I shall not he there," Stromberg groaned. "Please don't sturt talking about that bletsed euchre dance. Everybody does."
"Hello! Suy, Stromberg. let me give
you a piece of advice. It uever pays to get
rallied.   Now, what's tho trouble?"
"No I rouble at all," Stromberg snapped
back. "Simply, Mrs. Marshall hasn't
chosen to invito me to her dunce. She
wasn't obliged to, you know."
"Oh, but she did, though."
"Old she? Then perhaps you'll tell mo
what has become of tho Invitation. 1
haven't got it."
"Invitations went out by mail," snid
Roberts, putting on for this occasion tbe
calm, deliberate manner that belonged to
Stromberg habitually, "Invitations don't
get stolen from lhe United Stntes mall."
"No, they don't. That's why I suy this
nne never was sent."
"Oh, but you get so many letters, you
know,'' Koberts insisted. "Better go to
your office and rake over your desk."
Now, Stromberg did uot like to take
advice from au eugur, green, excitable
young fellow like Koberts. But this was
a serious case, and all exceptional. Moreover, Stromborg really began to wonder
whether the Invitation might not ho
knocking about on bis desk at the office.
So, when he thought himself unobserved,
he very quietly sneaked out of the club
and in to the dnrk. deserted ofllce.
After ten minutes' search among the
papers on his desk and iu the drawers it
occurred to him that nn iuvitation to a
dance would not be sent to bis busiuess
address, Then be gut up. and, slamming
tbe door angrily, went home to bed.
Curiously enough, as bo entered his
room his eye fell upon a pnir of black
trousers that hung on a stretcher right
opposite to him. Those trousers were
being stretched for the following night's
dunce. Stromberg laughed a bitter laugh
us he jerked the unoffending garments
down and pitched them into a closet. Uo
thought of ull he had looked forward to.
Next he looked backward���to the lust
occasion on which bo hnd worn thoso
dress clothes. Ho sat on a rocker and
meditated bitterly.
Suddenly Stromborg sprung from the
rocker with a shout. He flung open the
door of bis closet, seized tbe dress coat
Unit hung lu there and fumbled In the
inside pocket. There was a email, gray
note in that pocket, is it necessary to
suy that the note was Mrs. Marshall's?
Surely it was a miserable night that
Stromberg passed. What hurt him���
What ruined his hopes���wns the "K. S. V.
IV nt the end of the note.
Barry in tha morning he rushed to
Clara. She had not yet finished her
breakfast. What wns worse, she had
loid her mother nil about Slromberg's
little lapse of memory, nnd Stromberg
was welcomed tn the breakfast table
with loud laughter,
"I wanted to beg you to help me cut,"
said Stromberg. "Y'ou might���speak to
