Mu. Tuos. Shannon,of Cloverdale, who is widely known us the
leading breeder of swine in this
Province, lius just received by express un addition to hie yard in the
shape of n young boar of the Berkshire strain known as Large English Dish-faced. Tlie pig is said
by qualified judges to be an exceptionally line one, and wus purchased from Mr. Win. Linton, of
Aurora, as the best to be hud in
Ontario, being bred from the winning stock at Toronto exhibition.
Mr. Shannon is now breeding five
different strains of Berkshire swine,

Dow tlie DUHlllOM of Cheating the Qoveritv
lut'iit iiufi Degenerated,
Instead of ti run by night in nn open
boat from thu French coast to theBhores
of Hampshire, Sussex, Essex or Kent, wo
have t» content ourselves in these prosaic
timos with potty attempts to cheat the
revenue, for which women are moro frequently responsible than men. Such an
incident onco happened ut Belfast, where
an Irishwoman named Mnry McMahon
Was brought to tlio police court charged
With keeping whisky on promises which
woro unlicensed. Sergeant .Jones do-
nosed that ho went into thu defendant's
house and found it woman named Uruy-
lon, who was Boated before tlio flro.
Upon searching hor tho sergeant came
upon wi bottles of porter and two bottles
if whisky stowed away in her petti*
coats. To tho Inexpressible amusement
of the spectators tho sorgeiiut produced
tlm poccant garments in court. Each
petticoat was mndo of course sacking
aud was girt with innumerable pockets,
und all of them lined with soft material
bo ns to keep Ihe bottles from clinking
and possibly breaking each other.
Unhappily for poor Mary McMahon,
the petticoats, whisky- aud porter were
confiscated by the relentless police magistrate, and the chief delinquent was
Kent to jail fur threo moot lis. I enter*
tain no doubt that tho hearty sympathies
of nlne*tenths of those present in court
went with Mary McMahon to limbo.
There lias, wo four, never been a timo
in Scotland or Ireland when surreptitious potheen and mountain dew which
never paid u bawbee to the state exchequer did nut, like stolen kisses, taste tho
sweeter because of their clundestiue
He, however, who would fain find
amusing stories about running the blockade and smuggling contraband of war
through an enemy's tines may turn with
advantage to many transatlantic muga-
Bines which teem with articles revealing
the illicit trade carried on during the
American civil war. Ladies of the Bello
Boyd aud Mrs. Greenhow type were
caught trying to make their way down
south with countless boxes of copper
caps and packages of quinine stitched
into their crinolines. Captain Roberts,
bettor known under bis real name, Ho*
bart Pasha, tells us that he smuggled
great quantities of Cockle's pills into Se-
cessia, hut that tho southerners, differing in taste from the lamented Colonel
Fred Burnaliy, would have none of them.
A certain young lady, who appeared
to be in delicate health, took ship at New
York tor Havana, whence she hoped to
run the blockade into Mobile. Overpowered by seasickness during the voyage, she could not prevent the stewardess from discovering that she was girt
round about with linen bandages, among
which many costly drugs were stowed.
Such is tho complexion to which modern
smuggling bus come ut last. Our coast
guards have no preventive duties to perforin, ami their only raison d'etre is to
watch that no foreign foe makes a descent on our coasts. The Dirk Hatter-
aides of tho past aro as dead us the pirates of tho Captain Cleveland order,
and in their stead petty larceny revenue
cheaters like Mary MacMahon have
Bpruug into existence.—London Society.

as Havana) when on tho last Saturday
in May, 1538. the gallant Hernando de
Solo landed with his princely retinuo.
Great preparations had been made by
the loyal inhabitants for an imposing
reception, and the streets were filled
with a curious crowd eager to behold
their new ruler. At length the discharge
of ordnance announced that tho procession had left the waterside, nor was it
long beforo tho numerous retinuo defiled
before the applauding Cubans.
A band of pikemen led the way, wearing iron corselets and bearing long pikes
with steel heads glittering in the sun.
They were followed by a band of archers with well filled quivers, and then
came a small band of the newly organized halberdiers, equipped in casque and
plate armor. The trumpeters came next,
wearing their gorgeous state uniforms
and blowing fanfares upon their clarions, which were ornamented with silken
bannerols. After the trumpeters came
an esquire, bearing a banner on which
was embroidered De Soto's arms and
attended by 12 yeomen carrying maces.
And now loud shouts announced the advent of the "ndelanto."
The conqueror of Peru was then in the
prime of life and rodo with chivalrous
bearing upon the richly caparisoned
charger just presented to him. Ho wore
a full suit of polished steel armor richly
inlaid with gold, while about bis neck
wub tho gorgeous collar of the order
of the Golden Fleece, a gift from bis
monarch. By his side mounted on an
ambling mule was Donna Isabella, his
noble bride, and following them came a
train of esquires, pages aud men at arms
wearing tho armorial bearing of the
"ndelanto." A long column of knights
followed, their polished armor flashing
in the sunlight, their pennons and
plumes floating in the air, and their An-
dalusian chargers curveting along as if
panting for the contest. Never hod such
a gallant body been seen In Santiago as
this brilliant retinue which escorted
Hernando de Soto to the cathedral,
where a high mass was to be offered up
for their safe arrival from old Spain.
"Holy mother, but it is a glorious
sight," exclaimed a young girl, who had
stood in a large window in the Calls de
[gnacio, gazing through the ornamented
Iron work at Jn glittering host as it defiled past. ItW could she but feel flattered at the homage paid her by the
chevaliers as they passed—many of them
reining in their steeds to gaze at her
charms. Nor was this to be wondered
at, for hor beauty was of that old Anda-
tusian stamp, in which not even the gentleness of the fairer sex can quite conceal the latent fire of tho soul. Masses
of raven hair lay lightly upon her brow,
like untwisted silk upon white velvet,
and were gathered together by a large
comb, which also secured a rich lace veil.
Her languid eyes were black as jet, her
lips poutingly invited kisses, and in her
rounded chin was a dimple wherein
Cupid could have rested with delight,
Her flexible form moved to and fro as if
swayed by the south wind's breath,
while a tiny foot occasionally peeped

Vusco. Then, entering the court, he
soon occupied a place in the window.

bis broad acres made ldm the more attractive to matchmaking donnas. As
honorable as he was honest, and as faithful as he was brave, his dying comrade,
Don Antonio Gonzales, had felt great
joy when ho entrusted his daughter into
the hands of so true a gentleman. And
Don Vasco, regarding tho last wish of
his friend as a solemn duty, had ever
used every exertion to rear tho Donna
Inez as ho would havo brought up his
twn daughter.
"And do you not like it?" inquired tho
dnmsel as her guardian stepped upon the
window platform. "Do you not likethis
flashing armor, those spirited horses,
these waving banners, these bright Buits
of steel? Oh. yes. guardian, you must
liko it. I should think that the echoing
notes of these trumpets would mako
your blood surge through your veins like
a maelstrom."
"Yes, indeed. I have decided to join
this expedition if De Soto will accept my
poor sword,"
"What!" exclaimed Donna Inez, with
a look of uneasiness, "you go to tho wars
again! Oh, for tho sake of tho Blessed
Virgin do not go."
"Nay, nay, my fair ward, wero you
not just admiring tho scene?"
"Aye, but this is not the picture presented at tho close of a hard fought battle, when bravo knights lie suffering in
agony or die in despair." Then after a
short pause and an evident struggle tn
order to keep from bursting into tears
sho added, "It was there my father
breathed his last."
"True, but this expedition is not similar to n European campaign. These hidalgos go in quest of adventure, I admit,
but they expect to find great wealth and
, little if nny opposition."
I "But is the gold there, guardian? Will
it not be like Ponce do Leon's voyage iu

I    "I should liko to find that fountain."
I "And what good would it do you?"
asked Inez, the color mounting to her
i cheeks.
I "Ah," replied the knight, with a deep
sigh, "it might not avail mo aught.
Seriously, though, my fair ward, I feel
that honor calls mo to join tho expedl-

from the window and speaking hurriedly to horself. "I shall bo a bride of the

But the aboriginal inhabitants of this!
terrestial paradise were uot disposed to
yield it without a struggle, and at length
a horde of them with deafening yells sot
upon a party of Spaniards. The Europeans, unused to such warfare, retreated
to the boats, where Don Vasco had just
landed. Hastily forming a section of his
horsemen, he boldly attacked the Indians and soon drove them into the interior, shouting us ho urged on his charger, "Cho earn, saral" When the enemy
was routed, he returned to tho boats jubilant over his success, but ere he dismounted his steed staggered, then fell
dead. An arrow had passed through the
Baddle and buried itself deeply in tho
animal, inflicting a mortal wound.
"Never mind," exclaimed the don, "I
have been the first to raiso the lnnco

On reviewing his troops that ufter-
noon Don Vasco was somewhat annoyed
to find that one of his must trusty men
at arms hnd brought a stripling son to
sharo the perils of tho expedition.
"May it please your grace," said tho
man, "I wish to train him to tho pursuit
of arms."
"But what can his slight arm do?"
angrily inquired the cavalier.
"Little now, I admit. But he knows
how to dress a wound and lako care of a
sick comrade, uud he is us line as steel."
"Well, well," roplied Don Vusco, who
was pleased with tbe youth's appearance,
"you aro a worthy fellow, Pedro, nnd I
will tako tho boy us my page."
The delighted youth uttered an exclamation of joy, and that day bu occupied a tent used for baggage uud near

Meanwhile De Soto found himself opposed by a cacique, who remained implacably hostile, aud ho was about to
send n captain with a troop to conquer
him when the honor was claimed by
Don Vasco. Mustering his band, he selected a picked detachment, and at the
earnest entreaty of his page the youth
was of the party. They left in great
pomp, with trumpets sounding and the
cherished banner waving in the breeze,
while Don Vasco vauntingly declared
that he would "bring Hirihiqua back
either as a friend or as a captive. 'Che

There is apt to be a fine irreverence
about tho inventor which leads bim to
suspect that any old way of doing a
thing is for that very reason not the best

up his mind to do the exact opposite and

of originality thought of loading them
at the other end, tho preferable end on

my lad. I wants to know when you are goin
to marry her?"
"I'd marry her tomorrow," said Shelah
wistfully, "if she'd have me, master."
Reeks looked at him steadily for a moment.
"Shelah Baxter." ho said solemnly, "you

Shelab's suspended oars fell splash upon
the sen, nnd for a moment the boat seemed
to raise up nnd fly bodily over the top of a
wave, so hard did ho pull.

"No," said Reeks. "1 ain't.   Why!"'
"Because, If you could, I wanted you to

Shelah slowly descended tbe mound and
walked toward the bin. The "Ship's" sign
could ho seen long beforo the Inn. Within
a few paces of the sign Shelah halted. He
could hear a horse's hoofs pawing the
ground. He wns soon regaled with a little
whistling, then the softly hummed verse of
a song.

bloom. At sight of Shelah she looked tils

"Well, then," said Jenny, "say It quick.

"It's this," said Shelah, and his voice
shook it little. "Wo ha' been sweet heart In

Jenny's lip* quivered, and her eyes began
to fill with tears, but she kept her face tc

"It would break my heart to marry you,''
she said, "for I love some one else."
"You lovo some one else?" said Sbelah
"Yen, and he is going to marry me. So.
you see, Shelah, it would be wrong for me
to marry you. 1 should be always miser-

Shelah, let me go and—and forget me."
White and still sat Shelah; then heavily
aud wearily he rose. Jenny uncovered her
face for a moment. At the sight of his she
hid it ngnin.
"Forget you, lass," he Bald, "I nevei

what might have been, he leaned down
nnd gently pressed bis lips to hor forehead.
"But if giving you up, lass," be proceeded huskily, "will make you happy, why

voice—"why, I give you up."

Shehih heard it as bu stood in the lonely
sentry box of tho lifeboat lookout.
As usual Shelah called nt the "Ship" for
Tom Rooks. Ilo had barely entered when
he heard a horse's hoofs on the hard road,
A horseman reined up nt the Inn, and Shelah drew back Into the shadow,
"Shelah!" It was Jenny who spoko. She
stood, while and trembling, on the cellar
slops.   "Will -will you tako him this?"
Strangely fascinated at being called upon
for such au act, Shelah took from her the
measure of sparkling ale, and like n man In
a dream carried It to tho door.    With his
head down he walked up to tho rider.
A loud "Hem!" caused him to start and
lookup. Instead of tho young brewer, he
was facing the old ono.
"No, my man," he said, "I don't care for

old gentleman, aud ho soon disclosed the
object of his visit., A ball was going to be
held at llerrliigbouruu town ball, and he
was distributing tuvitatlons to such of his
tenants as choose to attend. As he was
passing—quite by accident,, be assured
them—lit! felt he ought not to miss the
landlord of tha "Ship." There were tbe
tickets, and he hoped that Reeks and his
daughter would attend.
"1 forgot to mention," he said blandly,
as Reeks, after expressing his thanks, took
them up, "that this ball is to be held tn
honor of my son Cyril's marriage. He is
to be married this week to the daughter of
a very old friend of mine—a man of Kent."
As hu finished, a low sobbing cry startled
all but Shelah. A beer warmer had rattled to tho floor, and Jenny stood vacantly
staring into a little lake of the spilled liquid
at ber feet
"Why, what's the matter, lass?" said
Reeks, "you look as white as a ghost."
"Nothing, father," she answered faintly,
'nothing only the heat of the fire."

and walked aimlessly down to his boat

With a little catching of her breath, Jenny rose and drew back. Theu, with a convulsive cry, she flung ber arms wildly
around his neck, and there she sobbea until she could sob no more. When they went

door. Something In their attitude made
him softly whistle. It seemed as if Shelab

A Life Insurance Manager Who Consults
the Planets Concerning the Characters

(lives Reasons For the Practice,
Not long slnco tbo manager of a thriving life Insurance company sat. at, his desk
chatting with a Now York Herald reporter. In tbo middle, of a discussion two
cards were brought In. Tho caller at onco
rose to go.    Tho olllcial sntd:
"No. Sit down. I want you to stny for
a particular reason. I don't think you
have ever heard of solar biology."
After chatting a fow minutes with
thorn, showing au equally hopeful affability to both, tho manager Hiild, tapping tho
papers bu had taken from them: "Oh, hy

keep records, you know."
Thoy gnvo datos about six months apart
in tho samo year. Ho jotted them dowu
carefully, then said, rising to bow them
out: "Come, bnck tomorrow. I will havo

When they were out of bearing, ho Kald;

"How will you discover that?"
By way uf answer ho took a big book
out of a convenient drawer, ran his eye
ovor some tallies In tho back uf it, mutter*
Ing to himself faintly ns bo did so, then
drew nut some letter sheets, printed ovor
with queer* marks and queerer symbols,
wrote hurriedly upon them, then loaned
back tn bis chair, saying as lie sot his fingers tip to tip:
'I'm sorry for that Pennsylvania lad,
I am, truly. Ho wnnts the place badly,
but It would be doing him nn unklndnesa
to glvo It to bim."
"How about tbo Maine man)"'
He laughed outright. "I wnnt bim,"
he Bold laconically. "Further, I would

anybody thnt knew him,"
"The other Impressed mo a shado tho

"Please explain to me what it ia that gives
you so different a viow of him."
"Ho Is tho brighter of tho two, not a
doubt of that," the manager sold, bending again over his book.   "For another
man's business—say a broker's, a publisher's, any place Indeed that required only
faithful effort on bis own part-—he would

apples ns Maiden'? Blush and lien
Davis, induced a reply from .Mr. E,
Eutoherjon, of Ladners, which appeared in our last issue, and was
no ilmiM perused with interest hy
most oi our leaders. We now propose to treat further of Iho samo
.-object, using in our argument tho
information preferred hy Mr.
Eutoherson, whose intimate acquaintance with the fruit industry pf
this Province no one will dispute.
As :i fruit growing country Britisli Columbia is. scarcely known
outside qf her own borders, and
whatever reputation she finally
establishes has yet to be made It
.will lie admitted that this is a
matter of thp first importance, if the
Province is ever to do an export
trade in fruit, and that without export in contemplation the extension
of the present orchards would hardly be a profitable investment.
The reputation to be acquired
must, of course, be for the quality
of the product, for upon no other
reputation can our surplus fruit be
disposed of advantageously to outside markets. Now, it happens at
the very outsmart, that the local
reputation of British Columbia
apples, especially, is by no means
flattering, for several good reasons,
as for instance the planting in
fears back of seedling trees, the
ioo general disposition to grow a
prop of apples ai)d a crop of hay
off the same ground, and the dis-
honpst practice of packing fhe fruit
with the best specimens in sight
and culls at the bottom. These
/reasons are certainly valid enough
to account for the low favor in
which liium; apples are held on the
home market, but they are not of
really serious account, because
easily corrected. The Fruit Growers Association, however, as we see
it, unwittingly seek to do the fruit
industry of this Province a much
greater, because a more permanent,
injury. This by deliberately
recommending the growing of inferior fruit, of varieties so handsome as to deceive all hut the
Initialed. Such are the Maiden's
Blush and Hen I):ivis apples. It
will not do |o say Hint it js wise to
grow these apples because on the
market ihe uninformed puss over
ibe choice varieties and choose these
showy kinds; for the uninformed having made tlie mistaken purchase speedily realize, on the test
,it eating, that the fruit is pool,
II nd observing I lie sample* lo be of
line appearance and apparently
perfect of their kind, they naturally
roncltiiU) that the fault is in the
soil and climate, Neither may
(he future welfare of II. C, fruit
growori lie sacrificed for pnisent-
gain, because these poor fruits,
like had weeds, are easily grown
nnd produce abundantly.
The Maiden's llliish apple, Mr.
Jluteherson says, is  rated  by  tho
Ontario Kruit tlroiveres' Association, at ,'1 points out nf a standard
of 10 for dessert purposes, and be
it understood that it is upon the
"eating" quality of apples that our
reputation must be built, Three
out of ten is a very low rating, and
why should this pool fruit be
grown when a variety liko the Duchess, for instance, possesses all
the advantages of the other, with
the additional one of being, by
Comparison, a really excellent
fruit? Tho Hen Davis has even a
Worse record, rating 0 out of 10 for
dessert, and 1 out of 10 for cooking.   This is scarcely equal to a
good turnip,  and yet  the  Fruit
Growers' Association in tho very
outstart  of tho industry in this
Province   recommend   its general
cultivatien.      Surely   this   is   a
serious mistake.   We learn through
Mr. Hutchersqn's letter that this
worthless apple is largely cultivated
about    Lytlon,   Spcncc's  Bridge,
and Ashcroft, while another winter
apple  only  'i  points better,  (.he
Baldwin, is stated to bo tho favorite
of  this district.    So.    The  Ben
Davis is tlie market apple of tlio
neighboring   upper  country   and
the. third-rate Baldwin tho favorite
winter variety of tlie Coast.   This
is rather rough, and one docs not
need to go further to explain  why
British Columbia fruit lias a  poor
reputation where it is best known.
A correction   is  needed  here,  anil
'      .i
the B.C. Fruit Growers' Association,
will fall in its trust if it doos not
take what measures il may 09
apply it without unnecessary delay,
Ontario with a well-established
reputation for producing superior
apples, cap, without prejudice,
market sqch apples as the Bon
Davis, and other worthless showy
varieties, but Britisli Columbia is
in an entirely different position,
and may not do so with  Impunity!
There is a winter apple calle
the "Ontario;'' whioh a few years ago,
stood at the very top of the rating
of the Ontaijo Fruit Growers Association for. all around good qualities. What about that variety for
British Columbia ? At this stagq
it will not do to consent to what
Mr. Hutchersqn implies, namely,
that to suit the varying conditions,
in this Province it is desirable to
grow inferior fruit.
It is stated hy Eastern papers
that Mr. Hugh Sutherland, President of the Hudsqps Bay Railway,
has succeeded in placing the whole
road under contract, the first 125
miles from Winnjpeg northward to
be completed tliis season and the
balance within two years. This
will be glad tidings to thp farmers
of the Canadian North-west, and of
Mipnesota and pakotn, too, for this
northern line of shipment appears
to .offer the on|y likely means of
relief from the extortion of the
Canadian Pacific and American
railways. Mr. Sutherland deserves
grpat credit for the manner in
which he has followed up this enterprise in the face of powerful opposition from  interested quarters.
BULLETIN Np. 2 of the Provincial
Department of Agriculture is a
printed report of the meeting of
tlie North-west Fruit Growers' Association, held in Portland, Oregon,
last February. The fruit men of
Washington and Oregon evidently
appreciate the wisdom of the efforts
that are being madp in this Province to prevent the importation of
noxious insects, for amongst a
series of resolutions adopted is the
following: " Resolved, that we hail
with pleasure the effective quarantine law of British Columbia, whereby she has served notice in no uncertain manner, though condemning and destroying several thousand
dollars worth of fruit shipped from
these States the past season, that
no infectious fruit or trees .hall he
received into her borders."
Tin: Consolidated Hallway and
Light Company, late purchasers of
the Vancouver and Westminster
Tramway, aro contemplating the
construction of an electric tramway
running from Steveiton 10 Sapper-
ton, anil have applied to the Westminster Council for a bonus in aid
nf tho enterprise to tlie extent of
$00,000 and exemption from taxes.
Everything considered tliis is a
proposition deserving of being described as "cool cheek," and the
Columbian in advising against it,
is prelty close to the city's intorest,
as wo see it.
Tim Commission appointed by
the Dominion Government to inquire into the question of the prohibition of intoxicating liquors,
have at length, after an investigation covering two years, sont in

against prohibition, while a minority report favors it. This is about
what might hnvo been expected.
free Trade as They hane it in tygland,
The following pointed articles
were published jn the Vancouver
News-Advertiser several weeks, ago,
and as they will likely be' new to
most readers of Surrey Times, we
deem them deserving of republication bore;—
Mr. Laurier is begining to find
put that his programme for Canada,
■'Free Trade as they have it in England," requires a good deal of
paring 'down and trimming to
make it (tt all palatable, It seems
as though when he gets through
with his explanations and refinements ii 'will be "Free Trade as
they diinlt have it in England."
tie struck the first snag wrien it
was pointed out to him thai with
nominally free trade, the people of
England pay very nearly as much

the Custom's duties i II led last-
year in Kiiglinid iinioiin: ■! to within a fraction of one hundred millions of dollars, With the duties
on soap, confectionery, naphtha
and two or three other minor articles, (lie total duties collected
amohnted to the onormous sum of
$100,082,057. A tolerably good
showing for "Free Trade as thoy
havo it in England 1"
It will be observed thai the articles named as contributing this
enormous sum to the revenue, are
all—with tlie exception, perhaps',
of wines, which only produced if
per cent, of tlje amount—artioles,
which are consumed by the masses,
of the people, necessaries, in fact,
Tea, coffee and cocoa contributed
about .|11),000,000, while tobacco
yielded the enormous sum of $51
560,000. Besides this, tlie Govern:
ment imposes heavy licence charges
on every person who sells tobacco,
bper, duplies and other articles,
wnich, of course, increase the cos^
of these articles tn the consumers.
The revenue from licence dutip?
amounted to the immense sum of
$126,234,200. In Customs duties
and licpnce duties together, therefore, the people of Great Britain
pay $227,316, 237 annually. This
is #Free Trade as they have j£ in
England." '
Bcsjdes this enormous sum-
nearly fwice as much per head as
the population of the Dominion
has to pay under the National
Policy for duties of every description—therp is such a complicated
and extensive ramifipation of tjirect
tax.es. yielding nearly twicg as
much more, as Canadians would
scarcely tolerate undor any circumstances. We will refer to them on
anothpr occasion.
One thing will occur to evpry
thoughtful person, who reads thp
figur.es wp have given, and that is
that jn a country which has enoj:
mous accumulated wealth and a
far larger proportionate number of
wealthy people than Canada has ;
in a country the Government of
which has for generations been
striving to pt)t the incidence of taxation on thp upper classes to the
relief of thp masses ; in such a coun.
try and under such favorable cir.
cumstaiiecs for thp taxation of luxuries and the remission of imposts
on thp necessarips of life; with
sources of revenue by complex
forms of taxation on many classes
of financial and commercial businesses | in such a country, we say,
jt has been found impossible to
raise (he required revenue except by
taxing those articles which are
consumed by tlie working classes
and thp poorest of the people,
When we get down to facts we find
that, "Free Trade as they have it
in England" would mean In Canada increased taxation on every
working man.
We showed yesterday that under
"Free Trade ns they have it in England," the people there pay on a
few articles of general consumption
almost as much per bund as CaiuV
dians do under (lie National Policy
on everything which is dutiable,
and that besides those duties tho
British Government collects a sum
still larger by one-fourth iu license
charges, which also full to a very
great extent nn tlie masses of tlio
English people, But these sums,
large as they are, do not nearly
yield tlio revenue required to carry
on the Government of the country
under "the beneficent dispensation
of a Free Trade policy." Together
the Customs duties and Inland
Revenue Liconco duties only yield
about 45 per cent, of the revenue
which has to be raised. As a result we find a system of direct taxation, so complex, tonching at so
many points everything which the
MOple ubo or do, that any attempt
to carry out a policy on similar
lines in Canada, would raise such
discontent and dissatisfaction as
would overthrow the strongest government. Every branch of business, almost every occupation, and
even amusements aud recreations,
aro forced to contribute, something
(0 the demands of the National
Treasury, while thp Chancellor of
the Exchequer, as the two budgets
of Sir William Harcourt show, is
continually planning to find fresli
sources of taxation to meet tho requirements of a'fiscal policy iri the
wealthiest country in the world
which is' worked op tho sy. !:.'m of a
Amopg the more important
sources from whip.1) the Inland Revenue is derived, we find that beer
contributes $50.487,000; spirits,
$81,876,000 and'railways, $1,426,-
000.   In a country in which there
re so many wealthy persons, the
nation claims to share in tho prop-
pcrty wjiich they' leave at their
death an,d probate duties yield'the
sum of $24,115,000"; estate duty,
$5,460,000; legacy 'duty, $13,706,-
000; succession duty, $6,420,000;
estato duty, $8 13.000, or a lotal of
over $50,600,000, Then taxation
by stainrs on almost every kind of
form of (locuuients'uspd In legal or
commercial affairs, policies for life
and marine insurunco, receipts,
drafts in d choqties produce $24,-
288,600. ' Bui Un laxpayor has
not yd finished with Ids claims,
and land and lenc mollis arc levied
ou to the extent of $6,134,428 annually, while n lax On inhabited
houses brings in $7,206,600. Then
we have the Inquisitorial Income
Tax, whioh brings in to the Exchequer $74,838,000, The total of
what are call,,I Inland Revenue
receipt fqr tho year ending March,
1894. was $801,260,000. Is it any
wonder that there is complaining
among the peoplo when they aro
called upon to contribute tq the
revenue ip all thesu various forms
and at thp same time see their business invaded, their triido reduced
iind their profits filched away by
foreign rivals, who.'while driving
their British competitors out of
neutral markets and somptjmes
pven invading tho British market
itself, lump put high protective bar*
riors around their own lands 1
Let Mr. Laurier, when he talks
pf the simplicity of the British fiscal system, tell his hearers of the
army of (ax gatherers and oflipials
who are spread over the land and
demand their toll pn every tjade
and occupation thrqpgh one or other of the forms of taxation to which
we have referred. Qf course, wjipn
Mr. Laurjer is pinned down to px-
plain how he proposes to have Frpe
Trade arid yet not impose (Jirpct
taxation as they havp it in Grpat
Britain, he avoids an answpr by
saying that when he is in power he
will consider the matter anq spe
what is best to be done. In Montreal, for instance, where thousands
of peopje find employment iq factories and workshops which, the
National Policy has built up, he
was careful to tell his audience that
they did not need to bp alarmed, as
•"it would take a long time to make
any change." And from timp to
time whije waving thp bannpr
which hap inscribed on it, "Frpe
Trade as they have it in England,"
Mr. Laurier is compelled, as he
did in Vancouver jn Septpmbpr
last, to admit that "Frpe Trade is
impossible in Canada.-' Is it Mr
Laurier or his audience that js
bping fooled ?
