WEDNESDAY.      JUNE   13,     180S.  The only unsatisfactory feature  of the Santiago bom bard ment is  tbat both sides were satisfied  with it.  Should it be: "The United States  is," or "the United States are?"  It depends. If you are speaking  of the United States as a nation,  then "is" goes. It you mean the  United States doing anything  individually, each statu acting for  itself,"then say "are."  Tbe Detroit People comes to our  exchange table this week with the  following bit ot flattery: "The  Herald is a good newspaper, -IS  columns, ably edited, and"judging  from the many and varied advertisements therein we are sure the  merchants and business men of  Calgary know how to appreciate  and support,, a live home newspaper such as The Herald is."  The mosquito is answerable for a  good deal of bad temper, language  and annoyance, and any means  within our reach to diminish the  . discomfort arising from the prevalence of these little pests should  be acceptable. The Public Health  Journal speaking of the mosquito  says: "Two and one-half hours  are required for-a mosquito--to  develop from its first stage, a speck  resembling cholera bacteria, to its  active and venomous maturity.  Tbe.insect in all its phases may be  ��������� instantly killed by contact with  minute quantities of permanganate of potash. Itis claimed that  a handful of permanganate will  oxidize a1 ten acre swamp, kill its  embryo insects and keep it free  from organic matter i'or .0 days at  a cost of 25 cents. An efficacious  method is to scatter a few crystals  , widely apart. A. single pinch of  permanganate has killed all tbe  germs in a thousand gallon tank."  It is also a fact that the lye which  drains from wood ashes will act in  a similar manner and render the  ���������development-���������-of - - insect-=^-life  impossible.  Do not buy shoes with heels until a  child is 0 or even 10 years af age. Iu  order to walk well and comfortably  the ankle must be well supported and  the toes not cramped.

Lord George Hamilton, secretary of  state for the Indian department, is  mentioned in connection with the  governor-generalship of Canada, to  succeed the Earl of Aberdeen. The  Duke of Fife, son-in-law of the Prince  of Wales, is also named in this connection.  Geimany, although ostensibly neutral in the present war between Spain  and the United States, is undoubtedly  unfriendly to the latter judging from  the hostile tone of the German papeia.  German United States papers are also  without exception  siding vvith Spain.  A woman with one eye applied at  the State department the other day  for a passport. The diplomatic clerk  who filled out the paper, discreetly inserted the following description in the  blank opposite: "Eyes, dark, soft,  full of expression, one of theni being  absent."  The Fenian element in the States,  seeing the friendly feeling that is  growing up between Britain and  America, has taken a pain in the  stomach and does not know what to  do with itself. Itis holding meetings  and passing resolutions against Anglo-  American unity.  The papers all over the continent are  comparing Joseph Leiter of Chicago  with the other Joseph who made such  a fine deal in wheat in the time of the  Pharaohs. That was a famous corner  of wheat which the enterprising son of  Israel put up in Egypt. He,, had the  shorts in a hole if ever a man had.  CROW'S NEST GRIEVANCES.  The   report   of  Judge    Dtigtis,  Frank l'edluy auii John Appletou,  Commissioners to investigate tho  grievances of the workmen ou tho  Crow's   Nest   Pass   Railroad,  has  been lai'l on tbo table of the Houso.  The work of   enquiry was    commenced on January 15th, 1S0S, and  since that time 282 .witnesses were  examined.   Up   to  February  tho  .'jrd, tbo   largest  number   of men  (itnpljyed on tbe works was ���������Ij.'iOO.  It appear., that whilo tbe contractor-) had  power    to  engage men,  they   wi'i'u subject   to a scale  of  wages  lixed   by   tbo manager of  construction,   M. .1.   llanoy,   who  woulil himself assist the contractor to secure men.     On   the  l"lh  May,    Mr.    Charleston,    one    of  1 limey's employing agents  received instructions cu engago 5U0 axe  men,   and   subsequently   ho   was  engaged .to hire    1U0   axemen ac  from #20 to ������2��������� u month and board.  Charleston arranged   with  H. Al.  Koy, to secure the services of these  men, and Roy accordingly made  agreement   with    them   for   free  passage to Macleod   with iood on  the road aud a suflicient supply of  blankets, their pay to commence  from the time of their arrival at  Macleod.   It  is staled   that  Ltoy  failed to obtain tho blankets, that  on arrival  at  Macleod   blankets  were   still   unattainable and for  nin<3 days the men were kept idle  living under   tents   and   without  proper   covering   and   the   consequent suffering fiom cold   during  the night was extreme. Some time  about August 23, the men learning  that the company intended to deduct from their wsges their fare  from Ottawa to Macleod and from  Macleod to the site of   the works,  sent two representatives   to interview Air. Haney  on   tbe  subject,  but he would give themj no  satis  faction, and the next day Laferri-  eie' one o������ tho delegates, received  his discharge.   Air. Haney stating  that he had the push on account of  being a ring leader, in  the  existing dissatisfaction in conjunction  vvith Uupont,   who   was   also discharged.      Tho  grievances   complained of by the men were not of  a trivial nature."' The  men  who  were engaged as axe men, had for  weeks  to   work   with   pick    and  shovel aud although   the   engagement was for  from   $20  to $20 a  month, they stated tbat for-days  when through inclement weather,  or reasons over which they had no  control, as also for Sundays, when  work wasstopped, the amount due  for such time, was deducted   from  their wages,  but they were still  charged for board.     This  caused  so much dissatisfaction and so discouraged the  men   that  many of  them left the works.   Roy's statement was that he specially enquired of Charleston as to the railway  fares of the men and   thnt he was  assured tbat it would be all right  aud that he, Roy, certainly understood this as an assurance that the  fares   would   be   free aud   he   so  stated it to the 150'inen  engaged  by him.     Still   the   amount   was  deducted from every man's pay.  It was also shown that Noel  Landry, hotel keeper at Hull,'  acted for Charleston in the engagement of two or three hundred  men rturiug the month of September fast. Landry's statement is  that his instructions from Charleston were most definite that the  men would uot be required to pay  for their transportation either to  Alacleod or to theiv place of work,  that the compauy would convey  them free and that that was the  basis of his agreement with the  men. Charleston said that he told  the men-that-the-company���������would-  deal with them squarely and none  of the men whom AlcCreary had  sent from Winnipeg had made  com plaint.  About IS oE tlie men who complained of having been deceived  left work at the end of September  wheu they found that tbey were  to be charged with their fare from  Alacleod. They were laid off 125  miles from Alacleod. A general  order was issued at the company's  camps to refuse them food._ Fifty-  four more of them were discharg-  ou a Sunday morning when  about 150 miles from Alacleod and  by the showing of tbe evidence P.  Nash, who gave them the discharge, positively refused them  food to keep them on the way and  that bo either went himself, or  ���������"ent someone ahead of them to  i.sue orders ..to the company's  camps on the return route, not to  supply them with provisions. The  men nlso complained that even  when at work the food supplied  was not sufficient for their requirements.  IUCFL'S-AIj to supply food  On this point the report says:  There is no po������itive proof against  Nash except that in tbe Erst instance he instructed his cook not  to supply them with provisions,  and that it was only by the determination of the. men and the  use of threatsjof violence.that they  were enabled to secure "-uflicient  food for three meals. Nevertheless on the road the men were actually refused a supply of provisions but that Nash denies having  given any special order to yiat  effect.  Inspector Saunders- stated that  Nash admitted to him having  given orders to the camps not to  supply food as they "wished to  teach the other men ales<--on". The  men on the return journey to Alacleod suffered great hardship and  privation, heing destitute of food  and compelled to sleep in the open.  A FEW SPECIMEN CASES  The report ernmeratc" n. large  number of special cases of . eriou .  ill treatment of the men and of  hardships encountered. It appeared to be a standing rule to refuse  food to discharged men leaving  the work.   One man fainted from  weakness through lack ot food.  Alou wero even refused a little salt  to use with any lish they might be  ablo to catch, and threo men existed for a whole day on one  onion. Ac times they were glad  to eat the roi'uso thrown away on  the roads. The men being forbidden to cavry their trunks on to  tho works losses were constantly  happening, one man losing SS0  through having to leavo his trunk  at Alacleod.    In sevural cases tbe  men had beeu abandoned by the  contractors, Doidge to Co. being a  caso in point. In some cases the  men had been paid by cheque  which on presentation at the bank  was pronounced worthless.  The commissioners met 25 men  near l'"ort St'"elo who stated that  Major llowlos hud left the camp ou  December 7, and that they had  nothing co cue and could get nu  provisions, and that they had no  settlement of wages since that  date. The touts had become filthy  and they were completely at sea  as to what would happen to them.  At some of the camps the men  were treated more liko convicts  than tree laborers. InstallC dismissal was the fate of any who  spoke to his fellow, and the complaints wero heart rending lrom  many who were kept idle, having  to pay board and receiving uo  wages, Amongst the immigrants,  especially tho Welsh, the "lima  catalogue of complaints was heard  although they stated that they  made no charge of misrepresentation against the immigration  agents.  Exorbitant charges were made  to the men for tobacco, overalls,  shirts and other articles. For  article.", invoiced in Winnipeg to  contractors at 55c to 05c, they  were charged $1.25 to $1.50.  Double prices were charged for  socks and the price oi boots was  most exorbitant.  Working the possible average  number of days, laborers paid at  the rate of $1.50 per day would,  after deducting his exuenses, have  at the end of the year $5.00 each.  Working 20 clays in the month, he  would have $30, aud if paid $1.75  and charged $5 a week for boatd  and working 2H days per mouth  ho would have $21 at the end of  the year. - .Working, nine months  nt 211 days per month, whicli is  the average number it is possible  to work on, he would be out of  pocket $22 at receiving $1.50 per  day and receiving $1.75 be would  be out of pocket $10. 'The men  found that after working two,  three or four months they were  not in ti position to provide the  necessaries of life for their families  and having to pay liis fare home  it was impossible ever to see his  family under ahese condition.  Still there is >t general admission  tbat the board was quite as good  there , as on similar work elsewhere.  The difficulties the company had  with their men i.s alluded to, and  Air. Haney says be was ignorant of  tbe representations made to tlie  men in the east regarding wages  and transportation and blankets.  ,   TIIECO.M.MISSIONEISS' I'l.X'DINti.S  The summing up of the whole  matter was found by the commissioners to be the establishment of  the following facts:���������Breach of  agreement on the part of Hanes'  and the contractors: lack of proper attendance to the. men when  reaching Macleod, forcing men to  sleep in tho open air without  blankets on tlie bare ground, lack  of proper washing accommodation,  and in some places camp's full of  vermin: the keeping of tbe men  under-terits-until-.Tanuary-without-  .stoves: threatening the men with  discharge if they should make  complaints; the loss of .time  through enforced idleness; the  charging of fare to Alacleod, and  from Alacleod to the works and for  board, even for meals which men  did not get. and the refusal to recognize the alleged right of (he  men to be returned home free, or  at reduced rate0, after a certain  time as represented by the agents;  overcharges on supplies, by toma  of the contractors; the well founded complaint concerning .medical  attendants: the clis-'harging of  men without provision to secure  them from exposure and suffering:  the refusal of menls to sjck persons; the low rate of wages: the  arrest of seveial without legal  right.  HOME REfIO.MEE.N'DATIONS  The commission recommend that  the scale of wagps for laborer,  should be at least $2 to $2.50 per  day: the .stoppage of the sale of  liquors on or near the works: the  appointment of independent government officials, empowered to  settle all differences on the spot,  and to see that rules and regulations were properly carried out.  ft is further suggested that these  reccotnmendations apply to all  public works, and that men who  have been employed six months be  reimbursed tho amount of their  fare, and that tho=e employed six  "months should in addition be  returned home free or at a  greatly reduced rate.  It is impossible to read the report without coming to the conclusion that Haney has grossly  abused tho unlimited powers he  seems to have possessed. Ifehas acted the role of a slave driver rather  than that, of a mnn in charge of n  great public work I'or which the  Government is indirectly paying.  The IJ.Us'sian barbarities which if  he did not initiate he seems to  havf* countenanced, justly earned  for him throughout South. ~-n Alberta the nam's of "C'/cnr" Haney.  If he possess, d the least idea of  the fitness of things, }lu would at  once resign his position.  A farmer went into a store in Mus-  koka the other day to sell a lot of line  poultries, lie was olfered -10 cents a  bushel. A travelling man who was  standing by remarked to the farmer:  " If you had thoso potatoes in Toronto  vou could get SO cents n bushel for  theni." "Va-ns," niisweied the farmer, "and if I had u pail of water in  hades 1 reckon I could get 57 cents a  glass for it, loo." And lliu drummer  col lap. cil.

One  of these is the same that was rejected  in the Commons providing for au  jipppnl to county court judges from  the revisors, where no such appeal ts  contained in the the local law. Nova  Scotia, New Brunswick and Manitoba  are the? provinces concerned. Mr.  Mills, who-tries to lead tbe Senate,  opposed this amendment and  questioned the right of "the Senate  to make amendments. But "  fortunately for his contention he  himself proposed some amendments  and accepted others. Some of  these amendments we.re absolutely  necessary,. as the bill would probablv have disfranchised the whole  population of Prince Edward Island,  'ing to thefiiilnre of the government  fit lhe general law to the unique  electoral system nf the province. But  Lhe Miller amendment, in the view of  the minister of justice, strikes at the  principle of provincial control, which  is considered essential. Theblll already  departs from that principle in the  clause preventing the provinces from  disfranchising federal officii--. Mr.  Mills refuses togofai-lher. If the government-holds-tri that- view, and the  senate does not back down; the Tran-  chise bill will not become law and the  plebiscite mav go down with it. But  the Miller amend-rient-is so absolutely  fair that it the .government causes the  two bills to be thrown out on its account, suspicion will be created that  the ministers are glad of an opportunity to stab the plebiscite measure.

Revelstoke Riding, West Kootenay ElectorakDistrict  Gl-NTl__~ll'.. : '  In coming Torwurd atllu* un.-inimoiiH  lU'sirc. of Ihu -upimi'lur:. 11.'llu* i_rov������rii-  muiit in this rilling to solicit your  sitll'r.-igcs ns n CiindUl.-ito in tin; coming  provinci.il elections, I wish'"to phicc  iK-loru you in str.-ti^htl'orwurd tcrins  the lines ,-ilong which I intcud to  direct my cuuiw.iE elected to represent  you iu tho J-ii'Kisliiluru. I mu to begin  with jiii advocacy ol* lhe ufeneriil policy  of the Turner Kovcrnuieut, a.s 1 consider that their policy is practical and  progressive and directed towards tlie  ticsi interests of the coimlry. The  development of the ma^iiiliceiit resources of this province must lie the  chief aim of the government of the  piovince, and it is tlie chief plank in  my platform. As Kootenay i.s the  wealthiest and most produitive district in this province, it is to my mind  HU-iNHs.s for the government to push  forward its development in every  possible way. The money expended  will be returned over and over again,  and in nailing the motto of KoOTi-NAY  I--IHST to my political masthead. I  do so not merely from a narrow local  patriotism, bub as considering from  very blondest point of view possible of  the welfaiu of Ilm whole of British  Columbia, that tlu; development of  Kootenay is the very best policy from  a business and practical point of view  that any government can entertain.  This object I shall, if elected, pursue  in season and out of season, and any  measure which I consider, nfter gathering the opinion of my constituents,  to be of advantage and benelit to  ivootcu.iy in general and this riding in  patticiilar, will receive tuy heartiest  support no matter from whnt quarter  or which side of the house it emanates.  , The interests of the riding are al-  :1111st exclusively mining,     'lhe  back  bone of the mining industry is the"class  .who do the. work, the prospectors and  mineis. J11 considering mining legislation of any kind, it is to thcih that I  shall turn for advice. If legislation  injtucs them it must he di'triiucntal to  the best interests of the district., and"  will find mu against it. If it is satisfactory only lo.them it will bo satisfactory to uie and receive my support.  There, are other classes of working-  men in this constituency, chic'lly-  railway men and those engaged in the*.,  lumbering industry. These men,  whether organi/.cd ' in unions or employed in occupations which have not  so far enjoyed the benelits of the-  trades union movement, will lind nie  their friend and the consistent supporter of legislation aiming to improve-  their prospects and condition in this  province. ������  I do nol. see that, there is any need  furl her to define my platform here. I  am before you, as I'have already said���������  ns a supporter of the genernl principles  nnd policy of the govern merit. I hope-  to have the opportunity to discuss the  details of that policy heloi-e you on a.  public plat form, and also to" make a  personal canvass at all points in the  riding which it is possible to reach ilk  (he time at my disposal, nt no distant  date, which will give ine opportunities,  to explain my position more at length  than is possible in an address of thisJ.  nature.  I would respectfully ask you. therefore, not to make any pledge until you  have heard both sides of the question,  and in order to afford the best possible opgortnnity for you to do so, I  hereby invite my opponent to meet  uie at all meetings which will hereafter be an .mge'd for ine to address.  Your ObedientSurvant,  W. WHITE.  JAMES GILL  &  GO.  Our announcements will appear  in a few days more. Our store on  McKenzie Avenue is being rushed  to completion.
