Home  Rule in Sight.
I believe Home Rule means fair
play to Protestants. If I may be permitted to enter into a little personal
explanation I will expound my meaning better. I entered Into politics only for one thing, and that is to secure
home rule for Ireland. For many
reasons I .,-ould rather be out of politics, but I think it is a great work
to help to establish political freedom
for a people, especially when the people are those of the genius and indomitable courage of the Irish: and it
behoves all of that race to assist in
such a work. The end of this century-long struggle is approaching.
Home Rule is in sight. But even at
this eleventh hour if I thought that ;$850 buys 3 large lots in Burnaby; all

But the Nationalists go lar beyond
thai requirement. In the Irish parliamentary party of eighty-two members
in the last parliament there were, I
believe, ten or eleven Protestants. I
hay, 1 believe, because 1 am not quite
sure of the exact number, never having had occasion to Inquire who were
I tho Protestants among us. 1 happen
to know that Stephen Gwynn, grandson of the Irish patriot of 1848, Smith
i O'Brien, and descendant of Brian
Bom himself, is a Protestant. Parnell
was a Protetstant, ot the Bomewhal
exclusive sect of Plymouth Brethren,

Emmet Was Protestant.
A great number of those most conspicuous in history as leaders of the
Irish people have been Protestants-
John Mitchell, Robert Emmet, Wolfe
Tone  and   (.rattan.
ln many of the counties of Ireland,
moreover, the Nationalist bodies have
agreed to give the Protestants a greater representation than they could obtain through the polls.
1 do not want to antagonize Protestants and Catholics. 1 only wish to
disprove a statement often made,
which If true, would produce a Justifiable movement against Home Rule-
that the result would be persecution
of, or some kind of discrimination
against Protestants. Many Protestants
believe this ln good faith, but with
insufficient knowledge. It is even possible by diligently raking throughout
the length and breadth of Ireland to

St. Petersburg, March 27.���When
Un- Russian authorities started reports recently that political prisoners
were no longer to be sent to Siberia,
they cracked a grim Jest In the face
ol the civilized world. Those wbo
know the facta as they are in Russia
were not surprised when, less than a
iiiuiiili later, three hundred men and
women, accused ol political offenses,
bui never properly tried, were ordered to tuk�� the dreary road to the
oblivion of the north.
For while the reports were Intended io impress foreign financiers and
facilitate tbe placing of loans, the
fact is the government of the Russian
Empire ls as cruel as ever it was, and
the lot of the political suspect has
not materially improved,
In fifty years well over a million
prisoners have been transported from
Russia to Siberia, and they are being
augmented at the rate of 20,000 every
year. At this moment there are fully
a quarter of a million perishing under
sin.eking conditions in that land of
the doomed, while 100,000 more are
rotting In foul Russian prisons, waiting for their turn to go before the executioner or to start tor tlie settlements of despair.
Trials   Merely   Mockery.
.'���'.us; of these prisoners have nev< r
been tried as Western people under-
sti d trials. Long before sentence
I . bi en pronounced everybody in
court has known what the verdict will
be so that a batch of prisoners often
i;i. three or tour days beforehand
how many of tbem will be executed
and how many must face cold and
I starvation in North European or Asiatic Russia.
Madame Vera Figner, prominent in
the long list of women who have forsaken Russian homes to suffer in the
people's cause, told a few weeks
ago bow soul-destroying is the life in
the settlements for prisoners. The
short summer provides a little amelioration of conditions, but the long
i winter Is a time of intense suffering
and dreariness, especially for the "intellectuals," whose sympathy for the
mass of the Russian people lias led
them into conflict with those In authority. They ure not allowed to
practice medicine, to undertake any
manufactures or to teach, even In
Kxiles are allowed a pittance, but
it is not enough to live on with even
common decency.   In some places it is
la dollar  a week, but in others less
than that.   Even such sums are with-
.held  when  desired by  the  local  authorities on the plea that there is no
| money in the treasury���an excuse often   called  Into   use during  tlie   last
year or two. for funds have been short
In  all public departments.
Exits   Life   Pictured.
Perhaps a few human documents
will give as effective a picture as can
be devised of exile life. Nathalie
\ Bushney was a school mistress before
her democratic sympathies caused her
to be sent to Tobolsk. She wrote re-
contly to friends here: "1 am earning
a precarious living by washing and
house cleaning, and by that means 1
' make 26 and 35 cents a week.    Eor
I home, I have a corner In a kitchen of
ja peasant hut. for which 1 pay 2b cents
|a month.   There 1 have shelter while
II sleep, at any rate.
"Though we are not allowed to teach
we may work If we can find it, but
that is almost Impossible. At first I
was so hard pressed I was glad to
take the leavings from the scanty
meals of peasant friends, themselves
often nearly starving."
From one of the largest prisons ln
Siberia, where fifty girls and women
are constantly entombed, came a letter a few days ago giving an account
of a number of them who were about
to complete their term of hard labor
and be allowed to settle in the netgh-
borhood  of  the  "free  cantonments.
| as the officials cynically call the districts in Which exiles live.
I    The   ulrls   were   Informed   by   tne
i governor thev could settle in the cantonment   if tbey  provided  their  own
dwelling. The entire cantonment consisted of ii score of tumbledown bids
and a building for criminals.
Live   in   Mud   Hut,
All the other huts but   a very  tiny
'one were occupied by man led criminals and their families and were greatly  overcrowded.    The vacant hut  had
only  one room, no bigger than u I1'1'
son" cell, and there were eleven girls,
but  thev decided to accept  it, though
not more than four could He down in
It a time.   One descrined the abode as
a swallow's nest, for lt was built only
of boughs and clay, with an earthen
flood.     When   rain   fell  the

Yet the exultation ot being fret
even that extent stirred these exiles
Into song, and the letter proceeds to
express pleasure In the  landscape.

Chinaman seems to lose at least halt '
of his resemblance to a born Mongolian. When a wig is provided tne i
change is even more marked. Then
comes the facial transformation. With
a little care the eyebrows are deprived of their distinctive Chinese character, and the almond shape of the
eyes, which is more pronounced in '
some Chinamen than in others is
changed by a few deft strokes of a
brush so that the slant of the eyes .
is not noticed. To still further bide
these telltale eyes a pair of colored
glasses Is given to the Chinaman.
'These r-inokcd glasses are so common
nowadays that they attract no attention.

have acquired the yellow face that distinguishes the Chinaman and the disguise of the features need not be so
painstakingly done.

A Comparison of Duties,
The Executive Committee of tne Manufacturers' association has given
out a valuable statement showing tbe dlffen i between the duties undei
tbe Payne-Aldrich act and tlie Canadian tariff on the principal items ol
tradi between the two countries. The fool noti appended by the
manufacturers Indicates the general tendency  ol the two tariffs:
"It will be observed that In respect to ��� dtural products the United
��� ' -"s tariff is froi I 33 1-3 p r cent to leu per eent higher than the Canadian tariif. while ln regard to manufactured articli the rates provided for

accident by which he was injured.

These Westminster Heights quarter acres are at the junction of the Scott and
Townline roads and front on the tracks of the Chilliwack tram. They are on a gently
sloping plateau having a splendid view of the city, river, valley and site of the gigantic
industrial drama about to be enacted in the flats below.
Westminster Heights Quarter Acres are   $300  and $325
The superb water frontage on the south bank of the Fraser, together with the
generally advantageous lay of the land, has already attracted the terminals of a transcontinental and a provincial railroad. James J. Hill is already on the ground with his
tremendous system and the great Fraser bridge provides a highway for all across the
river. Have you ever known a place so favored except where the values were many
times present South Westminster figures. This is because South Westminster is a logical industrial centre and the past history of such places is one story of wealth after
another to the land owners.
Westminster Heights will be the Residential
The possibilities of a quarter acre for a home are well worth considering. Thousands of people raise sufficient vegetables, fruit and poultry for a family on less ground
and have some to sell besides. The soil in this property is rich and deep and capable
of producing anything grown on the slope. The army of men that will be employed
across the river in a short time are going to need this ground; this is the point
that commends it to the investor now. These quarter acres are closer in than several lot subdivisions. Within a year a man can cut up a quarter and sell each lot for as
much as he pays now for the whole.
$300 takes an Inside Lot or $325 buys a Corner. One-
quarter cash, balance arranged to suit you. Let me take

Calgary, March 27.���Joseph Edwards, alias Harry Hill, alias J. P.
McQuillan, alias J. Pelter, alals Pet-
ter, alias almost, every conceivable
name, was once more brought before
the spot light, In the recent attempl
at. a wholesale get-away ot" the prisoners at Edmonton penitentiary, which
resulted In the warden being struck
over the head, and a free for all battle between the prisoners and guards,
before they were eventually subdued
ami their escape prevented.
Edwards, as the police believe his
correct name to he, Is serving an
eight year term on a charge of safecracking at Pincher Creek some time
ago. He is well known to the mount-
led police of this district, having figured in several eases here :iml having
been Incarcerated in the local mounted police barracks.
Started at   Pincher.
Edwards first became known to the
R.N.W.M.P. in ISSN, when lie was sentenced to seven years    in    .Manitoba
penitentiary on a charge of burglary
or a similar offence,   lie, bowever, escaped   after  serving   lour   years,   ami
nothing   mini'  was  seen  of  him until
lhe appeared in Vancouver, under ar-
Iresl   on  a charge  of  house  breaking.
I This time he was sentenced to three
years,   and   sent   hack   to    Manitoba
| penitentiary  to serve his term with
an   additional   six   months   for     jail
In 1900 be was again at liberty, being released. During the next live
years he appeared now and then on
minor charges, such as vagrancy,
drunkenness, etc., and was during that
time incarcerated in almost every jail

here, was rescued in a most peculiar
manner hy a lion whose' affections he
had won.
The hyena was a new arrival and
was still in its shipping box. when in
some way it worked loose the small
door used for cleaning the cage and
got out early this morning. Capt.
Snider, who lives wilh his animals,
was eating his breakfast when the
beast sprang upon him, knocking him
down and scattering dishes right and
left. The keeper retained his presence of mind and la> perfectly still,
knowing ihat upon the least move-
'ment the frenzied hyena would pounce
upon and tear him lo pieces. He was
lying in this way when help came
from a most unexpected quarter.
A lion, caged Close by, which has
a record of killing two keepers and
seriously wounding two others, seemingly had taken a fancy in Capt. Snider. This animal had si en ihe at"

made frantic efforts to get out of
the strong box which imprisoned it.
Crouching in one corner il sprang
witli terrific force tu tlie other side
of the stage, overturning ihe box directly on iii" hyena, which was just
ahout to spring upon the prostrate
i form of the keeper. The cage also
struck Capt. Snider on the leg. but
he was able to extricate himself before the hyena recovered from the
shock of the assault and summoned
his helpers, who succeeded in getting the animal under a net.
