The matter came up at the afternoon;sitting,  when Premier Balfour,  replying     to  questions on the subject, said lie did  not,consider himself pledged to inaction in regard to colonial  preference  except so far as parlj'a-ment was ..'concerned.   He reiterated that the government did not intend to deal with  thc fiscal question in the jpresen+���������-parliament.    The.matter of the colonial  preference  might,  however,  be     submitted    to     a colonial conference in  1906.    Sir  Henry  Campbell  Banner-  man, the Liberal leader, charged Air.  Balfour with violating the pledge he  had   made in his: Edinburgh speech,  and moved  the .adjournment of     the  House to discuss  the matter.      Tlie  debate on the motion came yn at  the  night  session  ami   was   marked      hy  disorder.    The Liberal leader den landed.-a plain answer from Premier Balfour,  and   Lyttleton,  secretary       of  state for the Colonies, rose to reply.  The     members   of   the     opposition  drowned the efforts of the secretary  with cries of "Balfour, Balfour." After continuing J*t about ten minutes  Mr. Lyttleton sat down. After several members had failed to secure     a  hearing,   the  Premier  rose  and  temporarily  lull  followed.    Mr.  Balfour  said he thought     it highly iniproba-  ablo  lhat lie  should  he immediately  expected to follow the leader of the  opposition.    He said he had  known  the opposition to refuse to hear      a  minister, and he insisted that-     the  house should hear Lyttleton, as otherwise the.dignity of the house could  not  he  maintained.    Lyttleton  again  attempted      to  speak,   hut   disorder  was     again     renewed.    Finally  the  speaker sard, that it was clear that  the scene could not continue, and he  would   thereupon   adjourn   the  house  under     thc  rules  empowering       the  Speaker to take such an action     in  case of such     grave    disorders.   The  Speaker had been uaahle to secure cv  en     a semblance of order amid constant     howls -lasting over  an  hour.  The action of the Speaker and the  scenes in the hou^e created a trernen-  \  deal with the suL.-;ct 0: Colonial Pre  feiencc    without appealing to      the  country.      The     members generally  were in a feverish expectation that  the debate would inS.in.cUy  provids  thc  terms  of Air.  Balfour's   ar.swer-  to Mr.  Cha-ntcrL\in's compromising  proposal.      It was also anticipated  that Air. Chamberlain-himself would  make an important speech on the fiscal question.    Then, .when  Secretary  Lyttleton was put up to speak  . instead of Premier Balfour,  a    stcrm  burst forth such as lias not ibeen seen  in the House of Commons for   many  years.   The opposition interpreted tho  government's', course as an  attempt  to stifle  discussion,  although  moderate members admit- that Air. Balfour  in his attitude was perfectly correct-  Tiie Premier himself,  in* appealing  to the House to permit Air.  Lyttleton     to  speak,   maintained  that  he  (Iha Premier) was a "prisoner in the  dock," art-d not to be heard until he  had, heard the accusation against him  Mc .Lyttleton also showed great self-  | possession.  j    At   t'lt- nr.ening of the House      of  Commons today there were prospects,  cf a repetition of the, scenes witnessed   l...il   night,   but  Premier   Balfour  calmed   tlie  nicmhcis  by  promising  a  day for the discussion of the vote of  censure  of     thc  ministers  for   their  statements on  the subject  of the colonial conference, i;i da-taking that the  debate will proceed with decency and  fair play.    The Premier, on entering  the  house,   was   pTreted  with   ministerial  elvers and -opposition  cries  of  derision.    When  order was  ir-storcd,   ���������  Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman ask,  cd   whether, in view of thc confusion  created  by     the declarations  of his  Majesty's ministers in regard to the  fiscal policy, and the proposed colonial conference, the Premier will give  a day for 1he discussion of a vote of  censure.      1  Sir William Dyke, Conservative, interjected the suggestion ������ihallthe lib'  cral leader express regret at the obstruction and insulting language yesterday.

C.  Hanufacturers of the  London    Saturday   Review,'   April,  29: ''YVe do; not find jt easy, to     account    for the 'widespread  interest,'  which,     we    are    told,  'is manifest  throughout Canada in  Lord  Gray's  speech' at Toronto, on Monday night  We were rather inclined to think of  the Canadians as':, perhaps more than  usually  intelligent,, as  a people   who  might prefer to be* told a few truths,  even if they came home, -to mcre.-'ibuty  tering.'   We all know that south   of  the  Canadian  frontier  nothing goes  down like butter,  hut. .is it .precisely'  the same north.of that line? Surely  the time has come to introduce something of a business element iiiio talk  about our imperial relations  ....  Lord  Grey singled  out, for  especial  cominehdatica the decision of-llie���������dominion, government to assume  "the  whole' responsibility  for  the defence  of Halifax and  Esq.uimalt. This Was  a striking  testimony      to   Canadian  love of the empire.   Canadian self-respect would have been lowered,     if  they     had not done  this.    May be;  none the less sentiment .on;this matter was  very much divided in Canada, and the.debates in the dominion  parliament pointed that ,way. > In the,  United States, too,. it\ was by      no  means,accepted as evidence of Canadian attachment_ to/the empire.   We  know of at least one instance where |  it was taken as precisely the reverse,  and: accordingly  rejoiced  over.    Very  naturally; for what do other natn'on's  see?

VICTORIA, :-*: ���������-< :^;  ���������-.��������� ^-B.C.  The defence of no  part,    of the empire can  be a local  matter;  if it is not  the  interest of  the-whole,   that_what  we call  parts  of our  empire arc  merely  separable  items of an inorganic aggregate.     IE  the defence.of Canada .is the business  of Canada alone, politically  Canada  can be no more to Australia or     to  the  United  Kingnom than  is  Argentina  or the  United  States.       What  great empire has ever regarded     the  defence of    its frontiers as a  local,  and     not  as     an   imperial   concern?  Lord      Grey,   in  congratulating   the  Canadians on  the substitution of local for imperial forces at riaLifaxi anoY  Escjjiiinialt,   was  congratulating- them  on the weakness and the unreality of  the  British  empire.    Ami   this  incident   brings   out another  unpleasant  fact,  the little fact that we have no  imperial army.   , An imperial army is  not  merely  a force existing  for  imperial  purposes; it must be drawn, or  it must, be possible to draw it, from  the whole empire;  whereas  the British army is  drawn from only a fraction of the empire, geographically an  extremely small fraction.   If we had  an     imperial   army,   there  would  be  regular colonial  regiments,  availal-Ie  for service in  tini3 of war, and      at  the -disposition of the  imperial military  authorities,  in  the  same     way  as  the  regiments of  the home army.  Suppose a system of compulsory service   is   introduced  here,   with      the  sanction of   parliament, will the cv.1-  onials be willing to Come in?  If not,  will it not  be evident  that they    do  not regard themselves as part 0f i a  solid state?   It will prove that they  regard   their   interests   as   distinctly  separable  from   the  rest  of  the   empire.    To ignore, as we do now, colonial'views on imperial policy is not  consistent   with   our   present   system  of popular government.    There is   no  reason  why  the mass of people      at  home     should  have a voice  in  these  mailers, and the people in the colonies not.    There may  well  he an imperial  system   of government  -^BSa^S.sSSSS^-^-*-^*^'-'7-^7-v-fi- .-���������-'--'* ���������*"fSSSESSP'* ���������  GIVE YOUR  HEIR THE AIR  In one of our     famous Vih.tncy  Ga-  Carls���������light      running  an.l    noiseless  -gears���������easy     springs���������a    cart    to  be  proud of��������� Mother and Baby will enjoy tho outing.

OO'OO   Editor  Ledger,   Sir,���������  Thc wet  weather is again upon us  and   the  vexing runestion of drainln���������,  the lower end of  thc city has  to be  raced.    Doubtless the Provincial      v-  ernmc.t  will   attend  to their  end  ol  tlie work and     put the drain of the'  Victoiia  road   in     goo I, serviceable  e-ondilion���������let     the   council   do   what  they are in duty, bound do.   Kitchener Street is  the proper place,       an:'  file most  natural for the main  drain.  If a contract  were let $100 would op-,  en up and   tile-drain   Kitchener si rev I  from   lhe   Esplanade   lo  Second avenue.    If Ihe present  road work sysleii*  ecu i in lies,      $:,0(l, would barely cover  the cost  of llie same work.    I eonsid  er  Mr.   Gould   is justified  and   in     n-  way arbitrary in  refusing  the council  lhe privilege oT running the cily sewerage  through      his  property.       The  council  are "not  justified" jn  providing     work'      for  citizens  out  of  pun  sympathy,      hut  are  unqiueslionably  bound   lo get   the lies!   returns for th  least outlay.

He  was  (and  I  think all  will agree) a valuable mem her of ihc  aldcrnianic   board.    I am  sorry -that  we had no, oppoi tunily of giving him  a hearty   send-off   which  lie deservid,  and   I hope   (lint   he   will   meet   with  un'iuiil-J   prospviily   iu   lhe   Golden  North.  'ihis  leases   the  city council   minus  1 wo of its  members,  and   lain,      to  say the  least,  curi<-us   to know   what  tlk-y in lend   to do about   it.    Pei squally,  I am of the opin'on that Walloper and   Progms should  be called  in  to     assist  in   the  governing  of   the  city, a.s they app'ar.lo know  il all.  To my  mind  they a*'** altogether too  fresh.      (.Fools step in  where angels  feer to  tread.)  Mr.   Editor,   I trust,  the good  work  ol' cl'earing up and^ impiou-menl  will  not cease, and as ihc alderman     of  ihe  Nasi  waul  is   the only  one  now  of the bunch   with any  kudnc   ( he certainly   isn't a mugwump)  1   think  he  should  be  given   full, license  to      go  ahead.    If lie is so busy lhat he needs  help,  why.  Iht'ii,  let him-call on the  lire chief and city architect   for their  valuable counsel  and  assistance;   Uie  utter'would, I am sure, lie uiistiotc.l  wilh advice and  professional  opinion.  I   don't   recommml   the aldei man  of  some of lhe wards,  because they  cut  very little  (if  any)   ice:   Of  course,  they aie ali' rigl?t for minor positions'  such as chairman of committees etc.  They  might  justify   their election   to  the aldermanic       board, .and      they  would   be of assistance if' they would  cause      the-   catching     gf that  .���������elping.a.nd almost invariil ^-' tagfle-ss  mengrcl that follows the chief of police-continually on his round of duty,  if they further desire to distinguish  themselves, let them take up the  ���������>estion of municipal ownership of  the city scavenger work, and solve  the problem of how much would-"- be-  $3:"),000, NOT $5,000  j    By. a    typographical     error  in the  ' ledger \oslcrelay     regarding the sale  1 of the    Wcstholmc     group of mines,  I 5,000 was printed where J.35,000 was  inknded,   Ihe price said  to have been  p.ii-i  for  the  properties.
