RECOMMENDATIONS  Suggested   by the   Executive  Committee  Or the B. C. Mining: Assoeiation to  the ( Government Regarding  Placer Act Amendments.  1 The Executive Committee of the  Provincial Mining Association has  finally approved ���of the proposed  amendments lo the Placer Mining  Act, and has handed the same to  the Piovincial Government.   - ���  The-full diaft of these contemplated changes'has not yet come to  hand, but a synopsis off some ofthe  more important amendments is as  follows :  Recommendation for official surveys immediately 'on the discovery  of new diggings.  Re-recording to be done away  with and compulsory development  to the value of at least $100 per annum, subject to absolute forfeiture  of ground for non-compliance.  ���To provide for the issuance of  Crown grants for riudividual placer  claims ou issuance of certificate oi  improvemtut to the value of $300 ;  upon a consolidation ot holdings,  the sum of $500 in work per claim  will|be required.  Upon individual leaseholds, the  sum of $500 in work will entitle  the holder thereof to a Crown  grant, and to a consolidation, upon  the completion of $1000 in work  upon each lease ; creek leases will  require $2000 in development work.  The placer mining tax shall be  25 cents per acre per annum prior  to issuance of Crown grants, and  50 cents per acre' thereafter; cost of  Crown grants shall be $5 per acre,  besides the fee of $10 for the Crown  grant.  There will be a reservation in  every Crowu^ grant for right-of-way  ,for tunnels, tail-flumes or drains as  'may be required to afford outlet,  easement and drainage for such  mines, as provided in Part III of  this Act. No Crown grant shall  be issued upon the beds of rivers,  creeks and gulches or mineral  mining districts, after the passing of  this Act, which are worked out or  abandoned.  Refuse Arbitration.  It is already well known that,  anticipating a shortage in labor  this season, Messrs. Griffith & Lov-  eridge, the contractors for the Pitie  Creek 'Power Co., brought a number of men from the outside, advancing their expenses into Atlin,  and agreeing to pay for their services $2.50 per day and board.  Without rhyme or reason these  men, not miners, by the way, but  laborers, struck yesterday, asking  for $3 a day and board.  Officers Elected.  , At     the    annual    stockholder  r  meeting of the Kngiueer Mining  Co., held'.ieceutly in Skagway, the  following officers were elected : W.  B. King, President; H. IS. Nicolai;  Vice-Piesident; Oscar Gard, Sec-  retary. ' These, togethei with H.  B, Le Fevreund Fiauk Nelson constitute the Board of Trustees.       }  The outlook of the company was  shown to be better-than at any  time since its organization.    " \   ~  The work now going on will be  continued. The 3-compartment  shaft is down between 50 and 60  feet, and, according to calculations,  it is expected another. So feet will  will' have to be sunk before the  ledge is struck.  Atlin Lodge, A.O.U.W. will give  an entertainment and dance at the  Grand Hotel/ou Monday 25th inst.  A Well Earned Vacation.  Mi. J. A. Fraser, Government  Agent, left on Tuesday afternoon  for the Coast. He will combine  business with pleasure and while in  Victoria he will, inteiview the  various departmental officials of  the Government in connection with  seveial matters of vital interest to  this district. Mr. Fiaser's close'  application lo the multifarious duties  of his office during the last year  has justly entitled him to a vacation. He will be absent.until after  the opening of' navigation. Mr.  Thain will be Acting Gold Commissioner during ' Mr. Fraser's absence ou leave.      ������ .    .  Capt. Hathorn/one of the Atlin  delegates at the recent Mining Con-  vention, returned on Tuesday evening from a prolonged sojourn to  Victoria and othertCoast cities.  In Full Force*  The New Customs'Regulations Regarding Machinery For  ���   Alluvial. Gold Mining.  1.,  It will, doubtless, be of interest to map of our readers to .learn  that the new regulations of the Customs'"Department affecting'placer  mining machinery came into effect "on the 17th ulto, upon which  date notice of the changes were sent to all offices and sub-offices  of  the Department."       The section reads':  ���"That machinery and appliances of a kind not made in Canada  for exclusive use in alluvial gold mining be added to the freeMist  until June thirtieth, 1904."  HYDRAULIC OPERATIONS COMMENCE.  In spite of the lateness of the  season, active hydraulic operations  by the various operating companies  will be commenced in the course of  a very few days.  The preliminary work on the  Atlin Lake Company, Limited's,  ground is so far advanced that it  was the intention of the management to begin piping today. R. A.  Lambert is foreman of the work,  under the management of Mr.  Williams, the new incumbent.  The relaying of pipes and flumes  on the Pine creek discovery claim  has -been completed, aud it was the  intention to turn on the water this  morning, but the strike of the company's''men yesterday^ has postponed hydraulic operations until a  settlement is effected.    ,  It is expected that piping will be  commenced on the McKee creek  property of the Atlin Mining Co.  within the course ofthe next few  days. Four giants will be operated  on this ground and great executipn  should be done.  Mclntyre's Body Found.  The body of John Mclntyre,  the mail carrier, who with his companion, Joe Abey, lost his life in  the public service on Nov. 30th  last, was found on Wednesday last  and brought in to Atlin. It was1  recovered within a very few feet of  the spot where Abey was fouud,  but unlike the latter, the body  was not frozen into the ice and in  all probability rested on the bottom  of Taku Arm until the agitation of  the water caused it to rise. It is in,  a perfect state of preservation.  '"��� Under instructions from the unfortunate man's friends the body is  being embalmed by Undertaker  Pillman, and pending decision as  to Mclntyre's final resting place,  he will be buried here. A public  funeral will be held tomorrow, from  St. Andrews church, at 2 o'clock,  at which the Rev.s Turkiugton  and Stephenson will officiate.  A General Meeting of the Atlin  branch ofthe B. C. Mining Association will be held in the Nugget  Hall tonight to hear the Executive  Committee's report. There should  be a full attendance.  THE DREDGING ERA  Eight Gold' Mining   Dredges  '    '    For the Fraser.  ,J  -        *  Llllooet,  B.C., Is the  Chosen Spot  For  Extensive  a  Operations���  Canadian and American Cap-  1    ital.  ' 1  h  \'  >  Following on the highly satisfactory  results  which  have foi years ,  attended dredgingroperatious in the  New Zealand gold  fields and , later'  in California, this  system  in auriferous   gravel   mining" is   soon to  I *      L        '  occupy a prominent^place 111 this  Province.,  Mainly through" faults in the '  construction the dredgers hitherto  used iu B. C. have proved failures,  but even in failure these demon-'  strated that the gravels in which  they worked would amply pay once  the proper machine was used. The  Fraser river< has, -so far, been the  base of these operations, but to  Atlin comes the credit of the largest  as well as the most perfect dredge  yet constructed, ^which will be iu  operation this ^season. From private advice we are informed that  four carloads of- the %iu"aehinery tor/*  this dredge arrived in Vancouver  last week'for shipment "to Atlin as  soon as navigation opens.  At Lillooet, on the Fraser, a company, named the Iowa Mining Co.,  is about to instal the first of "eight  large dredges on a stretch of three  miles, of the river.    The machinery  for the first dredge is being  made  by   the   Hamilton   Manufacturing'  Co., of Peterboro, Out.,  under the  supervision of Mr. J. Ames, an old"  timer of Lillooet,  who is superintending engineer of the new, company, and is also patentee and inventor of many of the new features  which will be embodied in the new.  dredge.  . The dredge will have a daily  capacity of 4000 cubic yards. Its  cost, with equipment, is stated to  be $95,000. The company will  make a special feature oi saving the  platinum, of which a'large proportion exists in the black sand of the  district, by putting in special appliances for the purpose.  The Electric Light Plant.  The old plant of the Skagway  Light & Power Co. was purchased y  last week by P. F. Scharschmidt,  on behalf of the British Columbia  Power & Manufacturing Co. The  plant'will be brought into Atlin as,  soon as   navigation   opens and in-<  stalled here. ��  P. F. Scharschmidt and G. H.  Sproat, both prominent otficials of  ofthe B.Y.N. Co., are the moving  spirits in the new company.  New Stock of Garden and Flow*  er Seeds at c/r.

MIIjLER,  PnRtorSfc.Pc-nil's '  Piesbytorian  Church, Philadelphia.  "Heleft nothing undone."-���Joshua,  KJ.,    IS-  That is more than 'can be said of  most people. The best ot us are apt  to leave many things undone. In our  formula  of  confession  we  are  accus-  , tomed to say, ,"Wc have done those  things   which   we  ought   not  to   have  . done; we have left undone those things  ' which wc ought to have done."   Perhaps we do not often think of'it, however, as really a sin not to do things.  '   We   admit  that it  is   wrong to,treat  ' another unkindly; do wc understand  ,'lhat it is wrong also not to show the  kindness we had the call to show?'We  know it is sinful to speak a harsh  or biUer word to another; do we al-  ���vays remember that it is a sin not to  say the word of cheer or comfort wc  fcad the opportunity to say, and which  ��mr neighbor so much needed and  longed to hear ?    If ,wc    must    give  ' account for idle words, we must also  give account  for  idle  silences.       >  *' Very much of our Lord's teaching  refers to sins of-not doing.   The man  ; with the one talent was condemned,  not becanse he used his talent in any  ��� wrong way, but because he did not use  It at all. The priest and the Le-  yite did the wounded man no injury.  {They probably even felt kindly towards  him, and expressed sympathy with him.  t��et the story reads as if they, had- sinned, grievously against -him. They  wronged him by not    giving him the  ,, h��lp arid the relief he needed, and which  Ihey had been sent there to give. Their  passing him by on the,other side was a  - true!  wrong    against him���a , sin    of  - leaving a duty undone.,  la our Lord's- description    of    the  ' iudgment those on the left hand are  condemned not for  evil things which  , they had done, but'for their,neglect of  ' love's duties. "I was an hungered, and  'ye gave me no meat; I was tliirsty,and  <��� ��� ye gave me no drink; 1 was a stranger,  ' and ye took me not in; naked, and ye  clothed me not; sick and in prison, and  ye visited me not."   They had not op-  J pressed the poor,1 they had not robbed  "' others.    Nothing whatever  is  said of  ' theirt sins, saving that they-had not  Hone the deeds of love to those who  % needed such ministries. They had left  undoaeTthc things they oughtto have  done.  - It is in this way that many people  fail most seriously. No grave fault can  be found with their conduct. They are  upright, true,.diligent in business, but  , Iheir lives are full of omissions and  neglects.    How was it yesterday   with  v you? Did you see one who needed help  or comfort or relief or encouragement,  and did .you fail to do anything for  him? Do not many of us need to pray  with the good Archbishop, "Lord, forgive my sins, especially my sins of omission?"  "He left nothing undone." Many of  the (best of us leave many things un*  touched which we ought to have finished. Most men die with many tasks  uncompleted.   Life is too large for us;  ' wc cannot do all that "it was our dutj  lo do.    After we have done our best  ���   *re have not attained even our own  I-^standard  of what  we ought to have  '    "one.   Indeed, there is a duty of omitting.   We cannot do any   day the one-  * hundredth part of the things we might  do.   Wc must show our wisdom in the  selection we make of the things which  we shall do.    Some people, however.  Dmit  the  most  important  duties   and  do the trivial things.  A thoughtful writer says: Do your  whole duty���do it well. Let the results  alone    The best that any of us can do  ^^S^thnig^^  ST S&T"* -US ^possible  fc we have done this we need.no  Gr.bo��t what  wc  ennot ��to.

The only way to make sure ol leaving nothing undone at the last is to  do each day's work in its day. Let us  never postpone or defer any duty that  comes to our hand, for wc shall not  pass this way again.".Let us know before wc sleep any night that nothing  ���as been omitted that day.no little task,  no service of love. Life is too  jacred to be marred by blanks and  breaks. One of the darkest shadows  tbat can fall upon any soul in its last  iays is the shadow of the things left  nadone.  How the Licensing; Act Works.  The following from The London  Daily Express shows in what manner  the new English licensing act is working':���The first appeal under the new  licensing act is that of Lady Lawson  against a separation granted her husband, Sir Charles Lawson, on the  ground that she was a ''habitual drunkard." It was argued in her behalf that  Sir Charles deserted hi* wife last July,  'and thus debarred himself from relief  under the 'act. Counsel raised the  point whether habitual drunkenness  would justify desertion. "When this licensing act was passed," said Sir Francis Jcunc���the appeal came before the  Divorce President and Mr. Justice  Barnes, sitting as a Divisional Court���  "I,tried ,very hard to get the committee to bring the principles of this court  to apply in the act, but they would not  do it. This act applies to a'mairicd  woman,'.,but not to a married man, and  that, with .all respect to the Legislature, seems to me perfectly ridiculous."  In dismissing the appeal with costs,  Sir F. Jeune said it was quite clear that  desertion in the eyes of the law meant  desertion without reasonable excuse.'  r' No. ,31 on the Elack List, otherwise  Caroline Schwcitzoff, was fined 20s at  West London 'yesterday for being  drunk. "She used," stated an officer,  "to frequent one public house at Not-  ting-dalcv-but since she was black-listed  she has been going to Acton, and even  as far as Southall, for drink."  The Marylcbone Guardians have  posted notices that they intend to prosecute any peison becoming chargeable,  to the rates in consequence of losing  employment through drunkenness, and  the co-operation of employers to this  end is invited.  Dreyfus Case Again.  Looming large on the French horizon is the thieatcned recrudescence ol  the Dreyfus affair, which is to come up  not in a couit of justice, but in tlie  House of Representatives. The campaign for, the 1 copening of the matter  is being led by MM. Jaures and Francis de Pressense, but in Conservative  quarters there is grave doubt of the opportunism- of the whole . affair, and  there can ipe no question but that the  Republican's think it much better to allow the matter to subside rather than  reopen a quarrel wliich so profoundly  divided France. The question seems to  be whether or not new facts exist which  will prove Dreyfus innocent, even to  those who are most unwilling to believe him so. Even those _ who  believe in the existence of  such facts point out that in bringing  the subject before Parliament there is  great danger that the Conservative Opposition, the Nationalists, and' chiefly  the anti-Semites, will find an excellent  pretext to begin again their campaign  against the republic, for the only wish  of these groups is to so discredit the  republic that the people will decide a  change of regime is necessary. The  latest evidence of the hostility of Francois (Joppee toward this government ol  "anarchy, shame and persecution," as  he calls it, has bCen his refusal to pay  his taxes. Tlie consequence of this was  that M. Coppee's furniture was seized  and offered at public sale. Before the  actual sale of the property took place  M. Coppee let it be known that he  would sell at this auction one of his  manuscripts, the Luthier de Cremonc,  and the incident proved M. Coppee's  admirers to be sufficiently loyal to pay  no less than 4,000 francsJor tlie manuscript, a sum which was more than  sufficient to satisfy the amount of tlie  tax assessment, this being not over 20a  francs.���Public Opinion. '  Princess Henry at Home.  Princess Henry of Battenberg, who  is very much better for her trip abroad,  says a writer in The Daily Express,  will be soon returning to town from  the Isle of Wight, and will take up her  residence at her home ia Kensington  Palace. Her rooms there have all  been refurnished and redecorated under the Princess' own supervision, with  modern comforts, and yet retaining  tlie old-world air of the surroundings.  All the apartments are strewn with  thick rugs over the parquet flooring  (which is a special hobby of her Royal  Highness); while the different rooms  are filled with quaint furniture, pretty  chintzes and innumerable nick-nacks,  as well as many photographs, which  are always collected in great quanta  ties by all the Royal Family.  To Cure the Egg-eating Habit  This certainly is an important subject, and one for wliich advice is often  asked. Most generally the inquirer is  advised to kill the worst of them, but  this is a mistake. Never kill the bird  for this habit The cure I give here is  sure every time. '  A few years ago my birds got, to  eating eggs. They.enjoyed them so  much that four or five would stand  patiently by a nest containing a laying  hen, and as soon as she would leave  the nest the egg was quickly devoured.  I asked advice from many fanciers and  received a different   prescription from  each one, and I tried them all without  success. I fed dried egg shells by the  peck, filled eggs \vith red pepper,  bought nest <"^a! by the do/en and  scattered them on the floor, but still  they ate the eggs. ������ Only one piece of  advice'did I 'refuse to follow���that was  to chop the heads off all the egg-eaters,  wliich would have meant, too great a  loss to me. ,  1 decided at last that if I expected  to have eggs for hatching, something  had to be done, and that right quickly. 1,'sharpcned my knife and went out  to the coop. I first selected my egg-  eaters. This I did by placing an egg  upon the floor, and.as fast as they made  for the egg I caught and placed them  ' in an 'exhibition coop. When the eggs  .remained upon the floor unmolested I  knew I had got all of them.  .1 then took them one by one and  > trimmed off the end of their upper beak  until it showed signs of bleeding, and  then put them back in their accustomed  place. Next day'I got fourteen eggs,  whereas I had not been able to get one  for several weeks before. They would  try to break the eggs at first, but as  their beaks were very sore, they decided they did not like eggs.  - Inj a week or two their beaks had  grown out, but they had forgotten  their bad habit, and never again acquired it.    ���      j    '    "   ,  I have told several friends about it,  and they found it a sure cure every  time.���May Huffman, 'in AvKricaa  Potiltry Journal. "��� 1  The   PrlnceHH'   View   of   Rhodes.  ,  An appreciation of Cecil llhodcs, writ-,  ten by the Princess Iiadiswill, was published by Mi". Stead" in his Review of'  Reviews in 1899. The following passages were quoted from It in -shorthand  in The Reporters' Magazine for January,  1900 :���"Not only is lie unsparing towards others, as ho is to himself, but  lie allows,' even more than he feels it,  his mistrust and contempt of humanity  to appear in everything he does or says.  Not naturally rude, but naturally shy, ho  assumes a rudeness wliich, being foreign  to his nature, becomes from this <very  fad* more aggressive and a. disdain of  the opinions, judgments and actions"' of  his neighbor, wliich is as 'insulting as it  is irritating to those who ha.-ve not studied  him long enough to'find out how much is  reul and how much is assumed in his  manner. He forgets that every opinion,  however false it may be, is bound to bo  respected if it is sincere and' that to  every intelligence, however poor it is,  is due a certain amount of consideration, if only that of courtesy. t, And in  this assumption of a rudeness which ia  not in him he wastes time and trouble,  for it is surely unnecessary to give to'  all the knaves and fools" one meets a  false opinion of oneself, and it is still  more useless to assume feelings which'  do not exist bsfore those who are clever  enough to make the distinction between  a comedy he does not even pin;, well, and  the real worth' of the man who, with a  perversity, I,feel almost tenured to, calL  feminine, tries to accredit around him a  legend utterly unworthy . of ��� him,' and  the great deeds he lias peiformea. No  kinder man lives than Cecil Rhodes, and  yet he has vbeen called hard even by  those who, sometimes unknown to them-  Belves, have been the recipients cf his  bounties. The man who has never had  a selfish thought, who has opened his  doors and helped with his influence all  those who have applied to him, is yet  6poken of as a cruel, merciless tyrant,  and, much as I admire him, I do not  wonder at that. - He does not possess,  amidst all his other gifts, that of sympathy, nor the art, so useful sometimes,  to make people forget his greatness. To"  know him well is to love him, but it is  only a very few who know him well."  A Week of I>Ue.  The year had gloomily begun  for Willie Weeks, a poor man's  SUN.  He was beset .with bill and dun,  And he had very little  : '   MON.  "This cash," said he, "won't pay my dues,  I've nothing here but ones and  TUES."  A bright thought struck him, and he said  "The rich Miss Goldrocks I will  WED."  But when he paid his court to her,  She lisped, but firmly said, "No,  e THUItl"  "Alas I" Baid he, "then I must die !"  His soul went where they bay soul?  I'hcy found his gloves, and coati and hat;  The Coroner upon them _  SAT.  A story is told of a negro evangelical  minister who held night services in a  ehapel formerly used by the Anglican  Church. In a hymnal which had becu  left ho found an old familiar hymn suitable for hi3 sermon, but the Roman  number CXIX somewhat confused hbn,  and he was embarrassed as t�� how to  announce the hymn. Aa was the custom, he read the stanzas through, seeming still confused. He then re-read the  first stanza, which did not aeera to aid  him in helping the congregation, now  very much bewildered. Proving redoubtable, he straightened himself up, and  seemed to grasp the situation at a  glance, and in a stentorian voico exclaimed, "Brethren, let us sing the Skee-  six hymn."  Tlie Bisfliop Coadjutor of Pennsylvania,  Alexander Mackay-Smitli, waa on the  'way one Sunday morning from the Bryn  Mawr Railroad station to tlie chapel of  Bryn Mawr College, where 'he was to  preach.; As he drove in the hired station  wagon'along the country road, ho saw  approaching on foot a little boy with a  ball and bat and a catcher's mask. Tlio  Bishop caused hi3 carriage to pull up.  "Little boy," 'he said, leaning out, "little  boy." "Sir," returned the lad. "Do you  know where little boys go who play ball  on Sunday?" "Yes, sir," the other answered. "They go to lieslon's lot, over  there behind the dam."  A View uf Ireland's Ills  ,A correspondent sends some'views on  the ills of Ireland, prefaced by an explanation that in ' the optimism  of his youth he^ hopefully accepted tho  view,,. that home rule would be a sure  cure. "A little more knowledge," ho  writos, "lias amended my views. I  have -been particularly struck by ' the  be ok 'Anglo-Saxon Superiority,' which  to me is a remarkable production for a  Ficnchman. Shortly, the theory of the  author, who is a most eminent socinl  scientist, is that the success of the  Anglo-Saxon race is due to its 'particularistic formation,' which he explains io  mean that the individual relies for his  livelihood,' not on the community or  gioup, or public social organization,  but on himself., M. Demolins seeks to  show that it is due to this individualism or scute of responsibility for one's  self that the Anglo-Saxon race has becn^  able to spread over and control so  much of the newly-opened portions of  the earth. Tlie author has not taken  the next step, however, and has not explained that this individualistic formation not only involves the idea of responsibility for self, but also, duty to  one's neighbor, to allow1- ' ini to work  out his own salvation, with which latter idea seems to be involved Mr. Benjamin Kidd's idea of /'toleration," and  that broader, liberty which ho,finds the  dominant idea at the present time.  r > M., Demolins contrasts^ with this individualistic formation the 'communistic  formation.' The latter he defines as  characterized by a tendency to rely not  on self, but,on the'community or the  group, family,'tribe, clan, public powers,  etc. no particularizes the populations  of the East as the most'striking representatives of this type, but the object  of. his work is to teach his own countrymen that they, too, are of this class, and  are falling behind:for this reason. He  states that the whole aim of education  in Fiance is to fit youths to hold public offices, to rely on>thc community for  their maintenance, so that once' they  have 'cnteicd the public service they  are able to forecast every important,  step in their livs except the date of  death. M. Demolins also refers to, tho  family' oontiol which is exercised over  children, and even grown men, giving as  one example /the French 'custom- requiring patents to furnish dowries on  tlie marriage either of a son or daughter.   ���   '  M. Demolins finds that this communistic idea, governs all Celtic races,  a survival of their tribal or clan organization. "Owing to their "traditional  i elan organization-they show more taste  for public than for private life,, for  political "'than for agricultural, industrial  or commercial struggles. In the Anglo-  Saxon world the Celtic populations mostly fill the liberal and political professions.   " '    '  ' "We have evidence of this characteristic of the Irish race in- our' own Province/ When a public', office becomes  vacant there ' is frequently a demand  that it. should be filled-by an Irishman,  and the reason, given is that it-is the-  'turn' of an Irishman to get an office.  Here surely is the communistic idea that  the individual lias a certain claim on  the State for his maintenance, and  that the Irishmen are not getting their  share."  M. Demolins writes:���"The constant  tendency of the Anglo-Saxon is to confine the powrs that be to the maintenance of public peace, without which no  business is possible. The tendency in  coramunistie societies is, on the contrary, to disturb as much as possible  the public peace, in order to insure for  one's self or'children, by the triumph of  one's party, some -cosy administrative  sinecure, since the idea of all shrewd  people 13 understood to be to live on  the budget. There was no other reason  for our several (French) revolutions;  there is no" other reason for the revolutions which are of daily occurrence in  Southern America." '  "See what has become of Southern  America under Spanish and Portuguese  rule, and behold the transformation of  Northern America in the hands of the.  Anglo-Saxon.   It is like night and day."  When wc look at South America,  as suggested bv the author, we must  feel convinced that home rule is at least  not a sure cure for unrest among Celtie  races. We may admire the courage,  lighting ability and energy si iwn in the  perpetual motion of their revolutions,  but it does seem that these upheavals  are chiefly due to a desire for otliee, in  conformity -with the communistic idea.  The constitutions of Venezuela, Colombia and llayli. for instance, each provides for orie President only, but un-  fortur.atclv more than one man wishes  to f.ll these posts, even after the popular  voice has chosen. The minority refuses  \i "tolerate" even the will of the majority. Would it not be so in Ireland?  The verv Fnct that many of the individual'leaders of the Irish Parliamentary party are mainly suppor d by contributions is evidence of thi devotion  to the communistic idea to gain a livelihood from the group, rather than by  their individual industry. Tlie contributions to this fund seem to come almost entirely from outside of Ireland,  the returns for one week being reported  at $5,000 from the United States, and  $500 from Canada, an equal aiaomit  from Cape Colony, and less than $200  from Ireland. This fact would indicate  that tho Irish leaders are ultra-communistic, not even confining their ideas  of a supporting community by geographical lines.  Why ILyncU Fonali*.  The case of Col. Lynch, M.P. for Gal-  way, is attracting new attention, because it has been suggested that time,  may free1 him from prosecution for ������his  treason. It is pointed/ out that the  act of William III. provides that prosecutions for treason must take .place  within ���'���three' years after the commission of the olTuiice.'bui. it is not clear  what statutory enactment applies to  tins case. That some action is shortly  to be taken by the British Government  is suspected from tho' arrival in Eng1-'  land of Mr. Lewis Handley,, a Natal  farmer,' who experienced some of the  war methods of Col.'Lynch's liish, brigade. ,* -.'"Colonel" Lynch told - llandley; ���  that he was a British subject, and when  asked by, Handley why he, a British  subject, was fighting with tho enemy.  Lynch replie'a 'that he was ;hting with  the Boers "foi fun'."' The ish brigade  (according to Mr.'Handley), while on  the farm, smashed. the mill property,  and destroyed a winnowing machine. It  was on March 7 that the "Colonel" took  possession of the iron' and timber, and  it< is said that this is to form a chargt  of stealing against him.   '  .  DANGER IN THE  AIR.

"But  I could explain."  Norma drew her hand away with a  ohaiply drawn breath.  "I'm in your way, in your way. You  don't know what to do with me, what  to do about me!" she cued, in,, a low  toIco indeed, but witn great bitterness of  ���oul. ,     ,  Now this was indeed the truth, but  Astley was much too kind-hearted to allow the statement to pass.       <  - _  "Not a bit of it," said he.

"Iliit���" began Norma.  Difficulties, beset their path in every  direction:   difficulties   which   were    all  ^summed up in that one hesitating word.

"We shall have an oppoitnnity  foT-talking things over, sh in't ��c' And  settling what we'll do.

"I thought perhaps I'd better," faltered she. l  "Quite, quite light. You ha\e done  exactly the light thing, m evejy way."  She felt a shy delight in his appicval,  but she said nothing Almost in silence  she walked beside lnm,until they reichcd  the sta-tion, listening while he told hei of  , the difficulties he had had to contend  with'among the scivants and dependents  in bis Lancashire home.  When he got into the railway cai-  riagc, and held out his hand foi .1 last  shake, she felt a keen sense of chsap  pointinonl that he did not kiss hei again,  and went back to her aunt's house half  miserable at this omission, half happy be  eause he had been so kind.  She lived in a slate of intense excite-  ' ment the two days that passed befoio  Saturday came lound; and when the  traia steamed into the station, and she  '��� recognized Astley's face looking for hei  from one of the carnages, she felt a sudden impulse of joy such as she never remembered to have experienced befoie.  The result, howevci, of this sensation  was that she was moie shy with him  than she had ever been befoie, and that  ���ho was as constrained as a schoolgirl as  she sat in the opposite coiner of the car  riage, and felt quite glad that thoy were  not alone.  Confronted thus with a sudden difficulty in the way of making conveisation  with her, Astley piesently remaikcd that  ho had been followed home one night  recently.  Befoie  he  could   finish,  his  sentence,  Noima, said quickly:  "I know   by a lad}."  Astley staied in astonishment.  "I was going to say 'by a dog,'" said  ' he    "What made you say that?"  Noima giew \ciy uncomfoitable, as  she luiswcied in a low voice, telling him  tho fancy alio had had that he. was followed beloie he left Oxfoid.  Greatly to her lehef, ho appealed altogether suipnscd, and at once assiucd  her tliat she must have been led away  by her fancy.  Ho, however, asked for a dcsciiption  of the lady, which Norma gave as well  as she could. But the lcsult was that  he was more sure than e\ er that her imagination liad got the better of her, and  that the woman whom she had seen had  not been, following him at all.  "If she had wanted to' see me at the  hotel, as you supposed," said he, "why  should your entrance have prevented her  coming back and asking"for mc? And if  *he bud followed us to your aunt's  house, aud then followed me back, as you  dcsciibe, why shouldn't she have spoken  -to me as soon as I was alone?"  Norma could not tell. She could only  say that she supposed she must have  been mistaken, and nothing moie was  eadd about the ciicumstance until they  reached tho station neaicst to Darwen  Hatgh, where they found a cauiage waiting for bhcin.  Aa she got in, Norma uttered an ex-  ��� daunt lion.  "What's the matter?" asked Astley.  Norma was lookirg at a ladylike woman, neatly dressed in black, who had  just walked  away from  the bookstall  With a paper in her hand.  "That lady," aaid Norma in a low  voico "reminds me of the one who cimo  Into your hotel at Oxford, and whom I  fancied I saw following you."  "What?" asked Astley, with sudden  pallor.  "Oh, it's not the same woman," explained  Norma hastily.      "But there's  ' something ir definable about her that reminds uic of her."  Astley did not recover his color.  i.iuv onlj," li" said, with a slight  frown. "That's Mrs. Wharlcs, the doc-  Lfll'n wife."  CHAP PER VIII.      ' c  During the whole of the duve to Darwen ll.ugh, Noinia was sulleiing so terribly fiom nei vous disties3 that -she could  scjicely ,give lcusonablc attention to the  rcm.uks Astley made. ,  Ho wn.s ncivous, too, and both were  too fully conscious of tlm dilKultics of  their cxtraoidmaiy iclation'to e.ich other not to feel a dillidenco about ilisouss-  unr them.'  fhe road seemed unspeakably dreary  lo Noima, who had ne\ci been in tho'  bleak north country befoie.��. As the carnage clatteicd tlnough the btrcets of  Blaekdalc, a typical Lancashire town,  with rows of baie stone houses, and  with a distant view of tall factoiy chimneys in the backgiound, she thought to  herself that it was not surprising that  the late Sir Hugh had picferred his  yacht and his London hotel to the dreary  spot where his home lay.    < ^   -  This feeling was intensified when they  had passed through the town, and were  diivmg along a straight, hcdgelcss load  towards Darwen Haigh. At last she was  fain to express what she thought.  "How dreniy it all ���'looks'" she said  with a shudder, after a glance out of the  carriage window at the smoke clouds  Vmoh hung over a ridge ot hills in the  distance.  Astley, who was little less gloomy than  she, shrugged'Ins shoulders with a de  piesseu little nod.  "And yet," he said, "the country must  have been pretty enough at one time  It's bioken up; you get plenty of lulls  and dales and sti earns. But since cotton  took possession of the place theie's a  blackness over it all, a sort of veil that  dims the colois and slams the veiy sky"  i "And the 'cottages���tney'ie so hard  looking, and baie, and all exactly alike  And the people���they look rougher than  the people down in the south, don't  they?"  "They're a good sort, thou'Jn, for all  that," said Astley. "I think fou'll like  them when you know them. At least I  hope you will."  ' Norma 'shot a frightened glance at  him. Lid he mean that she was to stay  at his Lancaslme home? She daied not  ask a question about it, but she felt that  Astley was quite as much pcituibed as  sho was heiself. One other thing she noticed too: he looked pale and fatigued.  After a little hesitation, she said shyly:  "Aren't you tvery tued?"  -, l    -  Astley leaned back ini his corner. -  "Very," said he. "To tell you the  truth, I've felt tired out, tnoioughly  knocked up and fit for nothing, e\ er since  poor old Hugh died. You see it all came  upon me so suddenly, the wony and the  woik, before I was quite mjself after  my illnes3 " >  "Yes, I see," murmured Norma in the  softest of soft voices  Sho spoke so gently that Astley looked  at her and smiled.  "You must be tned, too," said he.  She shook hei head. "I'm nevei tiled  Aunt says I'm as stiong as a hoise"  Astley looked at the delicate featmes  and smiled.  "It's the last thing one would think of  you," he said.  And then theiewas silence again until  they icached the lodse gates ot Darwen  Hnigh���and dro\e tlnough the long avenue of now leafless tices up to a big,  bare stone house, with the same gloomy  black film over il*~that Nonna had already remaikcd over the rows of cottages.  In the poitico stood a disacficeable-  looking eldeily seivant, who had been  butler there so long that he relented a  change of masters, if ho did not look  upon himself as master and upon Astley  as a toleiatcd visitor. lie had small  black side whiskers, and a long-suffcnng  expiession of face. Norma felt, the moment bhe saw him, that he lcscntcd her  own coming, and was filled with suspicion regarding her.  She had the same impression when, on  entciing the great, b.uc, eornfoilless hall,  to which oven a 1 oaring liic in the hooded fireplace impaited little waimlh, shffi  was met by a curtseying housekeeper, a  3tout, red-fneed woman of middle age, in  the inevitable black silk dicss and massive gold brooch, who was piesented to  hei as ".Mis Giiffiths."  Mis. Giiffiths was condescending, cere  monious and stalely: Lady Dai wen (Norma stalled when Astley called her by  this name) was neivous, fiightencd and  almosit humble. She tried not to move  loo fast for her dignity w hen the ordeal  of presentation was over, and she was  ceiemoniously inducted, after ascending  a wide and draughty stancase, and traversing a wider and moie diaughty corri->  dor, into an enormous bcdioom, where a  frowning four-poster, with mediaeval  hangings, seemed to scout the idea of  sleep or repose.  Refusing all offers of assistance from  tho head housemaid, who was as thin  and gaunt as the housekccpci was" stout,  and quite as foi bidding-looking, Noima  shut herself into the huge apartment,  and looked round her with a shiver.  It seemed to 'her the biggest room sho  had ever been in, and the most uninviting. The walls wcic coveied with dingy  old tapestry, which suggested to Norma  nothing but nightmaie, the fmnituie  was heavy, cumbioits and shabby, and  the window euil.uns and bed hangings,  though more modem than the lapesliy  ou the walls, was somebic-looking and  heavy, too. Thcie was a hie in tlie  grate, but'it appealed to Noima as if  most of the heal went up the old-fashioned chimney.  When she walked to the windows, of  which there wcic tlncc, she found tho  outlook as dispiiiting as the uilook.  Bare fields, divided fiom the lawn of the  house by a patch of sciubby 01 chard,  stretched'away to a liver in the distance, which lan in a rocky bed, bounded  on the other.side by a low of bleak hills.  There weie factoiy chimneys within  Bight on either hand, and there,was the  heavy black smoke cloud over all  Decidedly this was the most depi easing  locality she had ever been m: and the  supei sensitive Norma iwondeicd how  she could ever have been so mad and  wicked as to contemplate self-destruction in the comfoitable midlands, when  such awful places as the cotton towns  and their environs existed upon tho  earth I,,  Sho eat down in an unwieldy armchair  almost in the middle of the,room, and  stared aiound her m a sort of mental  torpor for neaily twenty minutes, at the  end of which'time thcie came a sharp  knock at her door, and Astley's cheerful  voice sing out from the coinder outside:  "Aro you still up'hcic? May I como  ia?"  < '  She jumped up and rushed eagerly to  th��5 door, and then suddenly checked herself with her fingcis upon the handle.  There she stood for a moment hesitating,  with a hot blush on her face, until tho  handle was softly tuined, and Astley's  face appeared peeping at her, with an  amused smile on' it.  "I may come in, mayn't fIr" he whispered.        ' ,% '  iSho slunk away from the door to the  middle of the room without a word, and  Asllcy came in and threw himself into  tho unwieldy arm chair. , She noticed  that foe limped moie than ever, and again  she was stiuck by the extreme pallor of  his face. The sight cured her self-consciousness, and she came quickly up to  him.      ' *   ,  ' "You're overtired," she said anxiously.  "You'll be ill again if you don't take  saic." 4, /  , "That's just what I'm afiaid of," panted he. "I do feel this rushing about after the quiet time I had of it at Oxford.  I've been thinking���if I were taken veiy  ill, what on eaith would you do?"  She sat down piomptly in a little  chair, which was neai the one in which  he sat, and said, looking earnestly m his  face "What should.l do > Why, stay heie  nnd take caie of you, of course!"  His pale face giew a little less pale, as  he met her eyes  "Would you' That's nice of you. I've  been thinking about ybu, and feeling so'  sorry for you, as of'en as I've had a  chance of flunking of anything since poor  Hugh died." -   - '   vf^"--*  ITorma leaned forward a~ little, and  said in a loyy voice:  "But you'i e not to think about me, at  least not to worry yourself. You don't  undoi stand how 1 feel. There, I won't  say much now, because I don't want to  make you talk; but I must just bay  this: I feel your kindness to me so deeply, I,feel so grateful to you, as-the one  creature whos been good to me, really  good and kind, since my poor mother  died, that whatever were to happwi^ to  me now, I should just take tilings quietly, thankfurfor having had the one, experience of tiue goodness in the world."  She spoke in a very low voice, putting  such strong constraint upon herself that  tho nails of her clasped hands dug into  her flesh. But there was" a passionate  thrill in her voice which made her simple  words eloquent, and touched a sympathetic choid in Astley's heart.  He put out his hand and laid it firmly  on both hers. '  "There's a good, good girl," said he.  "I'm glad we've had these few words together. So it's'settled then, that you  stay up here, eh?"  Norma looked at him with the blood  rushing into her face. Then she looked  down again.  t "If you wish," said she, in a low voice.  "I do wish it most emphatically. It's  the only thing to be done. People would  think it very odd of you if you were to  run away now, when they know I'm not  veTy well, wouldn't they?"  "Yes," whispered Norma, still with her  eyes down. There was a pause, and then  she said: "You meant me to stay then,  when you asked me to come ?"  "Yes. But I wouldn't frighten you by  telling you so till I'd got you up here,"  said he with a laugh. "I'm afiaid you  don't care for the place much now you've  coone."  "It isn't a very lively place," she suggested modestly.  - "It isn't at all lively.    It's precious  dull.   And your room: do you like that?"  Norma hesitated.  "I don't much like the dragons and  giants on the walls," she said humbly.  Astley affected honor.  "Not like our foui-centuiics-old tapestry! The pride of the Haigh!" cued he.  "My dear child, for heaven's sake don't  let Mrs. Gnhiths or Martin hear you say  so. 1 suppose you'll be grumbling about  our best bedstead next!"  Norma glanced at the cumbious piece  of furnituic in question.  "It's rather high," she said meekly  "I've nevei seen one that you had to go  up steps to before!"  "That's the beauty of it," exclaimed  Astlcy. "People come miles to see the  furniture in this room. It's *.the oldest  in the county. They say it ought to be  put in a museum."  "I shouldn't much mind if it was!"  piped out Norma in a small voice winch  set Astley laughing.  "You've no gratitude," said he. "I  said this room was to be prepared foi  you, because I thought you'd hud it interesting, and because the view's bcttci  than in the front of the house. There  you can see nothing but ticcs"  "Is it worse than this'" said Norma,  with intentional lugubnousness, because  she saw that she was amusing him.  He got up slowly and held on for a moment by the back of the chair. >  ���'Much worse," laughco he. "And now  I'll let you have a little peace. I  thought," he added huniedly, looking at  the fne, "that I'd better come and see  how you wci e getting on, so���so that nobody would think t we weren't good  fi tends, you know." 'i  "Oh, yes, yes," agieed Norma breathlessly, also looking at the fne.  "Haven't they brought you a cup of  tea?" said he, as he limped across the  hearthrug to tlie bell. "Tell tlfem to  bung you one, and try to- get wann"  "It's you who ought to do that," said  Noima anxiously.   "You keep shivering."  "Yes, I always catch cold directly I  come to tins beastly old draughty  house."  "Won't���won't you stay and have a  cup of tea with me?" said Noima diffidently.  "Thanks, no, I mustn't. I've got to get  round to Loid Wyersdale's to���to explain things. It's "just occurred to me  that, when I last saw Lady Myfanwy"  ���instinctively Norma drew heiself up���  "I said nothing to���to explain matters.  There was so much to say about poor  Hugh, you sec," he went on apologeticai-,  ly, "that I���well, I foi got it.'/  It was Norina's turn to hang on to(a  chair.  In a' stifled voice'she began: "Doesn t  she know you���I���wc���"  ��_Er���er���no," said Astley awkward-  Norma was shaking "like a leaf. This  Lady Myfanwy Seorton, the lily-fair lady,  whose voice) was so sweet and who rode  so well, to hounds, was already the object of her ardent jealousy. That Astley should be so anxious to visit her immediately after his arrival at onco 'became a,vivid sorrow. Astley saw'that  she was perturbed, but he supposed.it  was at his remissness in not having explained-his position to ,the neighbors  more clearly. ���   <��� ��� ^  As Norma turned away to the window,  he walked to the door.

"We must send "for the doctor," said  she anxiously.     ������'    ,       �����  Astley lifted his head and fi owned.  "Wharlcs!" said he.. "I" hate the  beast!"  "It can't be helped. He must come,"  said Noima firmly.  And then theie was a knock at'the  door, and Martin, the head housemaid,  answeied the summons. Astley had given.  She looked staitlcd whenjshe saw her  masters white face and blue lips.  He spiang up and staggcied to the  door trying to laugh.

He hasn't really forgiven me���and he never w ill!" sobbed the  poor creature to heiself as she shut herself in her great, lonely loomr  She seat herself for Dr. Wharles, and  when she had seen hmi drive up in his,  gig and had heard him go upstairs to his  patient, she wilked up and down tin  wide corridor to meet him on hi3 waj  out. - '  When the door of the bedroom opened  at last, Norma looked at the doctor with  a good deal of ini iest, to find out whal  it was in him winch had bo piejudiced  Astley against him.  Dr. Wharles was a tall, dark, broad  shouldered, fiesh-coloicd man about thir  ty jeais of age, with black hair, blue  eyes, a silky long i LOUstaehe, and a smiling look of self-complacency on his features. He passed for the handsomest  man in that pait of the oounty, and ap  peared to be not unaware of the fact.  He gieetcd Norma with a bow of tha  deopest lespect, lather more demonstratively tihan a London man would have  done.  "Lady Darwen?" said he. "I'm very  happy to have the pleasure and honor  of making your acquaintance."  Norma shook hands with him, understanding as she did so how lus rather  swaggcimg piovincial manner must grata  upon Astley, but not otherwise picdis-  poscd against the good-looking man.  "Tell me what you think. Is Sir Astlcy leally ill?" sue asked anxiously.  "I wish I could say no, your ladyship.  But unfortunately it is true that ho is  veiy fc\erieh, and that he must take the  gieattt care of himself. I've ordered  him to bed at once; and I think he had  beliter not be left to-night without some-  ono on the watch. But he is lather  touchy on this point, and d( (.linos to be  treated as an invalid. You, however,  with your sex's tact, will, I doubt not,  overcome, this difhculty."  "I'll try," said Noima, as she accompanied the doctoi down the wide, barc-  lookmg marble staircase, win oh seemed  to strike cold to the feot through the  thick pile carpet.  "I think I'll wiite him out; a prescription," said Dr. Whailcs as they reached  tho bottom stair.  Norma reddened a little, not knowing  tho^house, or m which diicetion to go  for a pen and ink. Tne doctor understood.  "May we go into the study here?"  asked he, as he pointed to a door in the  hall.  Norma accompanied him into a cosy  room, not too 1 rge, and dillcnng in  character from wl at she had seen of the  rest of the house. The furniture wa=  newer; there was moie of it, and tho  room was filled with a man's mementoes  "The late Sn Hugh's sanctum this  wafc," said Dr. Whailes, as he placed a  chair for Norma with elaboiate polite  if,  ness, and then pioeeedcd to 'write ou  his prescription. ,  "I undeistand thnt it was in" Oxford j  that Sir Astley had the good fortune to y  meet you, Lady Darwen," said he, as ha \  put down the pen.' ,'       �� >   r l  Norma, 'who pciaeived under his man-,  ner   that he had something to stay, to  her, assented.

Iu  part he says :  " Responsibility is not incurred  by those leaders and writers who  profit by the slightest conflict between labour and capital, to foment  discord and rebellion and to inspire  with hatred towards their employers. They arc the most dangerous foes of the people whose interests they pretend to serve. Let  not our laboring classes heed their  suggestions. They have absolutely  nothing to gain.

Ottawa, April 17.���The following arc  ���ome of the fcaUues'. of tlio budget  speech delivered by Mr. Fielding last  night :��� '���''.'  Revenue for 1902-3, closing 301I1 June,  , $65,000,000, an increase of $7,000,000.  (Mr. Fielding.anticipates an expenditure chargeable to income for 100.2-3 of  $St,65b,ooo, an increase of $890,000.  Thitjcstimatcd surplus for 1902-3 is  $I3>350|000, .far ahead of any previous  * surplus in our history.  lTTc"TrniTcTp"af:ed reduction in the public debt is $5,050,000, alter providing for  r all expenditures. '  ' '   The   average   increase, of debt per  .year during the seven years of Liberal  ,  administration is $1,097,379.   The aver-  -   age increase per year in eighteen years  of Conservative rule (was $6,560,000.  ;     On the operations    of the last four  7 years all expenditures have been paid  ' 'and not one cent added to the public  debt   The public debt per head,in 1891  ,was $49.20.   In 1896, $50.96.   It is estimated for the current year'at $48.31 per  '.   heed,,  It is proposed to issue, if there is a  'demand for them, Dominion notes or  currency notes to the amount of $30,-  DGO,ooo,   the   present   maximum   being  " $20,000,000/still retaining the    present  reserve of 25 per cent, additional fund  - raised by increase in issue to be used  Tto provide reserve of. 10 per cent, for  ' eecurity of $60,000,000 in Government  ��� savings banks.  As to the tariff, there is nothing in  '   the  condition   of  the  country,  in   die  ,   Government's opinion, which requires a  "  general revision of the tariff.    Manu  facturers -have held the home market  and their shipments to Jorcign ,coun ,  tries have increased.   It may be-at at  early date desirable    to make furthei  changes  than are  now  proposed,  but  the character of these changes will de-  '   pend on the attitude of certain other.  '   countries towards Canada.   ���  In view of the    duty on breadstuff's  imposed  by  the  Imperial  authorities,"  the Canadian Government have press-  1 cd for a reciprocity in pieference, intimating that -if  Gicat  Britain  recognizes the principle, Canada would'concede a " further    pieference,    without,  .   however, jeopardising the position of  '" the Canadian manufacturers.      Such a  concession, if granted, must be as between the British and the foreign man-  ufactiuer.  Tlie Government is not prepared at  the present moment to say what may  toe the answer of the British  Government to the view the Dominion Ministers  had   placed   belore   them.    Sufficient time must be allowed the British  ���Government  to  consider' the    matter.  ,Then,   if  the  British people,   Govern-  mienl and Parliament should not show  -any appreciation of   the   value of the  ..preference., jhey could not complain it  1 Canada saw fit to modify or change the  'preference.'   There was no great anxiety on the pait of Canada lor reciprocity with the United-States,-but a  ���strong feeling had been manifested in  the lutter country for closer   trade relations.  -'    Mr. Fielding read Senator Fairbanks  J letter to the Prime Minister, suggest-  ''ing the reassembling of the Joint High  Commission,   and   bir   Wilfrid's   reply  that a meeting could not be arranged  before the end of the summer.  ' 'In both these questions affecting Bri-  .   tain and the United States there was  ' .enough to cause the Government    to  postpone any  revision until the    outcome was known.     The Minister was  hopeful of extending trade with France.  'As to German discrimination  against  Canada,  the    Government  had    done  their best during  the past five years  to bring about a better understanding  yith Germany, but in vain.     The Government proposed to copy the example of Germany, and, as respects dutiable goods, would enact a clause to the  effect  that  when any foreign country  treats the imports from Canada on less  favorable terms than the imports from  other countries, there shall be imposed  upon the goods 01 such foreign country a surtax over and above the duties  expressed in schedule A of the genet al  tariff, such surtax to be  onc-tlurd of  the duty so expressed in scheduln A of  the  general  tariff.      This  duty would  go   into  effect  to-day    (Friday),    but  would not apply to goods purchased iu  Germany before April 16th for immediate transportation  to  Canada.  It was ateo proposed that the Government should be Riven power by order in Council to impose a duty of  $7 a ton on steel rails, whenever ir  cat* be shown that the mills in Canada  are in a position to manufacture steel  rails -in sufficient quantity to supply  the ordinary requii cments of the market, and of the highest quality. The  Government were not able to do anything for the silvci -lead industry c  Canada at present, but would furtlu  consider the question. Before the set  sion closed, the Government woul  propose something for the relief o  the' binder twine manufacturers to  compensate them for the rebate which  not made in Canada, for the manufnc  ture 'of beet root sugar, would be ex  tended.     Machinery   required   for   ex  elusive  use  in  alluvial   gold mining  ir  the Yukon would he added to the Jrn  list until June 30.    On certain article  manufactured in the country the chiton the raw material  was higher  than  on   the   manufactured    .article.      The  Government    would    take    power  tc  make such articles free or reduce tin  duty itself.  As to the canals of the country, thej  ���would be made free as :iir for two  years. , This action was taken at the  request of a large and representative  deputation of marine men.  SURTAX ON GERMAN IMPORTS.  Good3 Now Bought May be Allowed  Entry to June 30.  Ottawa,   April  20.���There  has   been  considerable inquiry from business men  as  to  how  the  Customs  Department  would interpret the new tariff lcsolu-  tion,   which  piovidcs  that  the  surtax  imposed  on  imports   from    Germany  shall-not apply to goods purchased on  or  before  10th Apiil    for    immediate  transportation to Canada.      The matter was  before  the  Cabinet at    their  meeting yesterday, when it was decided that the exemption clause will apjjly  where the order 'was in the hands of  the foreign exporter on or before 16th  April, and the goods arrive and make  customs entry in Canada on or before  June 30th next.<   it is considered that  this interpretation deals fairly with the  business community.      It gives ample  time to importers who are .entitled to  exemption from the surtax to get their  goods into' Canada.,    Those who are  not so entitled can cither cancel their  orders or, make their purchases  from  some other, country than Germany. The  following telegram has been sent out  by the  Commissioner  of   Customs :���  "Referring to the clause in the resolution of Parliament under which a surtax is to be imposed on German goods,  which provides that such surtax shall  not apply to any goods 'actually purchased on'-or before the    16th day'of  April,'1903,  by any  corporation,  firm  or-person in Canada    for   'immediate  transportation to Canada, the question  of interpretation to be placed upon this  exemption clause will be a matter for  regulation.      I am authorized to state  that  such   regulation   will  provide  for  the  application - of  this   exemption   to  goods* which  have  arrived   in   Canada  and are entcicd for duty on or before  the'30th  day of June.   1903,  provided  satisfactory proof be furnished in each  case that'1 the order therefor from the  importer was in the hands of the foreign  exporter  on kor  before  the   16th  day of April, 1903."

The Mohawk Institute Totally Destroyed.  Brantford,   April   20.���Tlvs  Mohawk  Institute,   a   large    three-story    brick  structure about a mile outside the city  limits,   was   totally   destroyed   by   fire  last night.      The loss  is  estimated _at  $35,000, and this is well covered hy sn-  suiancc.      The institution, is the property of the  New England  Cqoapany..  an    association    formed    in    iiuglj-nd. j  many  years   ago   for   the   purpose   off  educating    Pagan  Indians.      The  osx-5  ginal    buildings   were    erected    about j  seventy  years   ago,     but   there     have- j  been  additions  made     from     tiraa- to-ij  time.  h Thert 'were about eighty  In- 3  dian scholars in the building when) the J  fire broke out, and they were in their |]  beds.,     The  spread    of   the. fire   was  slow,' fortunately,    and     everyone- escaped  safely.      A   large    part  of  the  contents of the buildings were also removed to  a place  of safety fiom  the  flames.      The origin of the fire is not  exactly known.     A few days ago thcie  was a blaze in the roof, due to a. defective chimney, and,  as the blaze tonight  broke "ont  in t about the  same  place,   the   cause     was     probably   the  same, although it is supposed that an  electric wire had something to do with  the fire.      The blaze broks out i�� the  roof' at the west side of the building,  and there was nothing to stop it.    An ,  alarm was sent to the city fire department, which responded, but there was  no water supply available  and nothing  could be done to save the parts of the  building which were then remote from  the   fire.      The   entire   structure  was  burned to the ground, only the walls  standing.      Efforts were made to-save  the creamery, a small building in the  rear of the institution,    but were unavailing.     There -was very fortunately  no wind blowing at the time, and the  large barns were not in danger.  NO WIRELESS MESSAGES.  Temporary Interruption Owing to  Breakdown of a Subsidiary Device.

The aged statesman wai  surrounded by his family, all of whon  had' remained within call since thej  were summoned to his bedside at midnight on Wednesday, a long' vigil ol  eighty hours.

He came of good Scotch  stock, being one of the Mowats ol  Bucholie, Caithness-shire, Scotland, the  restorers arid owners of> the ancient  -castle of the Vikings- in Scotland. H:s ���  father, John Mowat, was a soldier, who  had seen stern service under Wellhi,;-'  ton during the Peninsular wars with  France. His mother , was Mary  Levack, also of Caithness. The  ���elder Mowats lived at Carisbay, which  place they left in 1816. coming to Canada and settling , in Kingston. The  ���fruit of the marriage was five children,  three sons and two daughters. Oliver  ���was'the- first child. He was educat-  ���ed at private schools in his native city,  ���one of his teachers being Rev. John  Cruikshahk, at that time held in high  esteem as a teacher of youth. Among  his fellow-pupils wr-e two men 'who,  ���with him, were afterwards; destined to  hold high places in Canadian politics,  Sir John A. Macdonald and Hon. John  Hillyard Cameron. /��� t the-age of seventeen he left school rnd entered the law  office of his former ��� chool friend, John  A. Macdonald, who, oeing five years his  senior, had been admitted to the Bar  and had begun to practise his profession.  Mr. Mowat's ��� pui lie career may bo  said to have begun in ''1857, when hi  was elected an Ald<". man for St. Lawrence Ward, in th" City of Toronto.  He again sat in Council in 1S58, as a  representative from St. James' Ward.  PI is name as a civi-r legislator will li��  associated with a lnfasuic'which he introduced and carrici through, "to provide for the better administration ot  the affairs of the rorporation," which  was known as "Alc.crman> Mowat's bylaw." His entrance into the wider  sphere of politics came at the same  time. In 1857 he resigned his com-  missionership and ran for the House  of Assembly for Smith Ontario. His  opponent was Joseph Curran Morrison, whom he defeated by the large  majority of nearly 800 votes. Although he had in early ^ife been surrounded by Conservative influences, he  himself, as one biographer puts it,  "chose that broad-minded Liberalism  of which he has ever since been so  able an exponent pnd so steadfast a  promoter." The Macdonald-Cartier  Conservative Administration was then  in power, and Mr. Mowat soon found  himself at issue with many of its  measures^  The third and greatest period ol  Oliver Mowat's public career began in  1872, when he left the Bench to reenter politics as Premier of his native  Pi evince.    During his retirement from  public life the confederation of the Dominion, in laying, the foundations of  which he had taken an active parkin  ;i864, had become an accomplished fa'et!  It remained, for hiniilo assume an office  ���as head of that union's greatest Province and to hold it continuously for a  longer period,than had ever been done  in any self-governing countiy in the.  world. His descent.from the Bench  and rc-entrance in'o practical politics  ^occasioned a good deal of discussion  at the time among those who seemed  to think that the purity of the judicial  cimine must to some degree be contaminated'by the change. The answer to'these'criticisms, if any be'  needed, is to be found in the record of  24 years as Premier of the Province,  which Oliver Mowat afterwards earned.  FOOD IN TIME OF WAR.  Royal Commission Appointed to Investigate.  London, April 20.���A Royal Commission has,been appointed to consider the  desirability , of adopting ', measures in  addition to the maintenance of' a  strong fleet, by which Great Biitain's  supplies of'food can be better secured.  The movement which has led to tne  appointment-of this commi'ssion"bcgan  in 1896. but it'was not until the beginning ,of the present year that it became  at all vigorous and influential. , Two  representative meetings were held in  London , recently, with the' object of  drawing public attention to the fact  that war with a great power would endanger the nation's food supnly. A deputation which was appointed to'waitf-'  on the Premier insistcd'that if war were  to break out the people of tins country would, to say the least of it, be  driven to direst straits, and'Mr. Balfour, although he did not take a'pessimistic view.of the matter, thought that  good reason had been shown for holding an official inquiiy into the subject.  The Prince of Wales takes as much  interest in the question of the nation'*  food supply as the King does_ in London's-housing problem, and his inclusion in the list of commissioners' gives  every satisfaction, especially to those  who have not forgotten his famous  Guildhall speech on his return from ins  lolonial tour, and his warning that Bnt-  ain must wake np. , .-  ���4   MAJOR-GENERAL -HUTTON.

Father Dupont, the Cure of this  place, lost his life in a fire that destroyed the presbytery early on- Saturday, and deep regret prevails thiough-  out the parish. The origin of tlie fire  is unknown, but it seems that the priest  being unwell had kept a fire in his  bedroom. When found the remains  lay near the door, as if an attempt had  been made to get out. The servant,  who slept in another part of the house,  managed to escape, but he can give no  reason for the fire. The church was  saved.

St. Petersburg, April 20���The official  newspaper at Tiflis reports that a riot  has taken place in the Village of Sou-  chi, in the Black Sea district. The  peasants stormed the prison to demand  a post-mortem examination of fa prisoner who died. They asserted he had  been beaten to death by the police, but,  according to the police certificate, he  died from brandy drinking. The peasants overpowered the police and liberated the prisoners. The,post-mortem  proved that the prisoner's death resulted from blows, and the guilty police officials have been punished.

Men, Women and Clothes.  The "Matinee Girl," writing-in the  "Dramatic Mirror," makes some pertinent remarks on clothes:  I "All the'great gifts of which a man  may be possessed in the way of a good'  voice, faultless pronunciation, a charming manner or intense intellectuality,  sink into nothingness if he is not able to  wear well made clothes and wear them  properly. The wearing of clothes should  come as naturally to men as to women,  but it doesn't. Girl babies are able to,  tilt their caps coquettishly under the  parasol of a perambulator and wave theia  blue shoes temptingly in the air when a  boy baby disdains to pose and punches  his pillow or else chews moodily on his  worsted toe. We notice the well-tailored  man on the street and in drawing-rooms,  and say to ourselves that, after all, it  is the tailor who does it. The truth ol  tho matter is that a good modiste can  make a woman smart much easier than a  tailor can convert a stick into a possible-  looking man. Men's clothes are of men's  lives a thing apart, and a man probably  doesn't feel any different if Jus collai  buttons aie gold or celluloid. But evcry^  inch of leal lace that u girl attaches to  her joyous duds affects her temperament,  the exact thinness of her batiste petticoats, the gold buckles on her garters,  all mysteriously influence her manner as  sho enters a room or step3 from a cab,  and give her confidence in herself I It is  one of the most myrteiious of sex attributes and there certainly must be a few  of the brain cells with baby ribbon run  through the bars in the head of a normal woman. Otherwise what alienist  can explain the remarkable part that  clothes play in'the life of a woman���  from her first doll's frock to the christening robe of her first baby I"  -MMMKcarom I  r  Mr. Dooley and the Sinitor.''

Just as  the train  was  leaving the  station  at  Newcastle, a big, broad shouldered drover,  panting Jiard  after a  race  to  the  station,  opened the carriage door and  jumped in.   He flopped down on the seat  opposite to the Englishman, and immediately,  feeling  that  there   was  something between him and    the    cushion,  pulled out from under him a silk hat  crushed flat.    "I'm sure," said the Englishman, "you might have been a httlo  more careful!    You might have looked  before you sat down."    "Ay, I'm rale  sorry," said the burly cattleman, "but it  micht ha' been waurl"    "How could it  possibly have been worse?" retorted the  Englishman.   "It micht Oia' been ma am  hat I" was the reply.  Booker Washington tells this characteristic story of one of liis countrymen:  "I called an old negro farmer into my  office and explained to him in detail how  he could make thirty dollars an acre on  his land if he would plant a portion of  It in sweet  potatoes;    whereas,  if'-ho  planted cotton, as he had�� been doing for  years, at best he could only make fifteen  collars an acre.   As I explained the difference, step by step, he agreed with me  at every point, and when I came near to  the end of my argument I ocgan to congratulate myself that I had converted  at least one man from the one-crop system to  better methods.
