Winnipeg, Aug. 10.��������� The Molson's  Bank robbery mystery, which caused  sueh a sensation here last full, has  been cleared up, and the supposed  robber is now behind the bars.  The man charged with the crime is  John W. Anderson, employed as  junior clerk in the bank at the time of  the robbery, and latterly as accountant with the McOlnry Manufacturing  Co. His arrest wus effected through  a detective, who came here at the  instance of the hank. The detective  engaged lls elork in a lending dry-  goods store and obtained board at the  siiiiio lodging house with Anderson.  They became bosom friends, and  Anderson finally confided to his friend  that he. was in possession of a mini of  money. Investigation followed and  Anderson was arrested to-day.  lt i������ understood that the entire  amount of sLolen money was recovered  having heen hidden by Anderson in a  valise and buried near the river bank.  The bank olllcials positively refuse to  give any information to tho public as  regards"the amount of money found.  Tho robbery occurred between the  28th of September and the 4th of  October last, year, during the absence  of Manager Phepoe on a brief holiday.  The sum of $62,000 was taken from the  bank vaults, IS 12,000 of which was non-  negotiiible. Every elfort was made by  the police and hank authorities to discover the whereabouts of the money  and to effect the arrest of the, guilty  party. It was finally decided that the  robbery must have been committed by  some one intimate with the workings  of the vaults, and a detective was  engaged to stay with the case until  the robber was discovered. His labors  were completed with ihe arrest of  Anderson, as stated above.  After the robbery Manager Phepoe  was transferred to an eastern agency  of the bank, and wns succeeded here  by -Manager Kohl, of the Brockville  agency. Citizens were confident that  Manager Phepoe was innocent of any  knowledge of the robbery, and made  loud protests against his removal. The  arrest of Anderson completely vindicates all other officials.  ��������� Anderson is about 23 years of age  and of good family. He came to  Winnipeg,from Hastings. Ont. The  discovery of the money was made by  following Anderson to tho point where  he had concealed it. After his departure a party of men dug down several  feet, and a valise with the money was  found.. It is reported to-night that  Anderson has confessed,  ,    -. , t  IggjggXggXSXg������������^^  INSURANCE COMPANIES TAX?  Inspector Hobson .Says.- that- it "Means  'U '������������������ ari^Addi'tional Three-Cents on $" '"  G. W. Hobson. the secretary'of the  Board of Fire Underwriters was in  town ynsterday revising fire insur:  mice, rates. His visit will in some*  cases at all events result in a reduction.  Discussing witli- a Herald man the  twenty five dollar fee imposed on all  insurance companies doing, business  in this town by the council. Mr.  Hobson said that the only practical  result would be to make the companies  tax collectors for the city. As soon as  his report, which would be mailed tonight reached "Vancouver, an addition  nl three cents on every dollar of  premium would he added-to cover the  tax. The item would he" inserted in  red ink on the policy���������"Municipal tax  at three cents on the dollar" and the  amount would have to he ' paid before  the policy was handed over. In reply  to the. argument of the Hekald representative that the insurance companies  benefitted hy the municipal expenditure on increased fire protection and  should therefore be prepared to stand  part of the cost, Mr. Hobson suid that  the. rates in Revelstoke .were as low  now as in, places with every kind of  lire protection procurable and that  therefore the companies could not be  expected lo pay the fee. There were  portions of Vancouver for instance  rated as high as S) per cent., and even  on.Cordova St..somp_had_to.pay_6i per  cent., which was quice as high as any  risk of the same class paid here.  Entreating the Hkarld man not to  make him say anything that he had  not suid Mr. Hobson then resumed his  task in company with F.-linker of inspecting the various risks'in town.  During his visit here he witnessed a  test of the water supply by the fire  brigade, and found from a 1 inch  nozzle, 10S feet on the level und considers the'service very good.  Mr. Tapping's Meeting.  No doubt owing to the exceedingly  bud night, but a poor audience was  secured at the public meeting callfcd  by B. Tapping to discuss the frontage  tax question on Wednesday night.  F. Fraser, J, P., was elected to the  chair and Mr. Murphy secretary of the  meeting.  The chairman called the meeting to  order and in u few words explained  the nnttiie of the. business to be discussed, at the same time calling on a  number of gentlemen (whose names hu  read fi (iiu a list) to speak. Unfni Innately only one or two of the.ui put in  an appearance.  Mr. Tupping expressed himself as  strongly iu favor of the front'ige tax  being imposed on the main trunk and  other sidewalks, and introduced a  resolution to that elfeet. After a  considerable delay Mr. Samuel Neod-  liam seconded the motion, hut. he  wished lo cover a little more ground  than the mover, as he expressed himself in forcible terms that not only  should the tax be charged on sidewalks  but on all street improvements as by  this menus a death blow would be  dealt to the. while-shirtod townsite  agents and land grabbers generally.  Mr. Stamper regretted very much thnt  he could not call himself a property  owner, but nevertheless strongly lav-  ored the views expressed by the  previous speakers.  Mr. Adair, when called upon to  express his opinion stated that he was  not prepared to speak on this subject  at present, but would no doubt be in a  position to do so both on this and  various other subjects at a later date.  ��������� Aid. Crage. while candidly admitting  Mr. Needham's impeachment regard-  ing'white shirts, said that his views on  the question had been slated at the  various council meetings, and had  already appeared in print, and that he  was present merely to deny the statement that he represented the views of  the Smelter Co., who! to his knowledge,  hud never been advised of the question  at issue.  Mr. Nettle spoke at some length  against the fi outage tax in so far as it  applied to the in iin trunk sidewalk.  :_j_. Haig stated that he considered  it altogether out of place and entiiely  wrong to impute personal motives to  any member of the City Council in  arriving ac their decision on this'or  any other" question whicli hud come  hefore him, atid stated thai, he was not  in favor of-the frontage tax.  Aldei'tni'ii Kilpatrick and Grahame  both spoke on the subject, explaining  thaftheir views and tlie stand they  had taken had already ' appeared in  the press accounts of the proceedings  of the council.  A.. " ballot " (!) was-then .taken on  motion resulting in 38 votes being  castin favor of it; there being none  against. ' .--���������.   ���������  The chairman then announced that  a' collection would' be taken up to.  defray.the expenses of the meeting."  The sum of $1.00 was collected and the  meeting adjourned; -    - -  ALL AROUND FERGUSON  Some Promising   Properties In  That Locality.  THEY WILL SOON BE SHIPPERS  O'Brien-Boyd.  On Monday afternoon a quiet wedding ceremony was performed by Rev.  ____!. Robison, whereby Mr. Martin O'Brien, the popular proprietor of the  Victoria Hotel, and Mrs Boyd, who  for some time has acted as housekeeper  fur that well-known hostelry, were  united in the bunds of wedlock. The  ceremony/took place at the residence  of the bride's mother, Mrs. Dunsmuir.  in the presence-of a fe.v of* the intimate friends of thecontracting parties,  aiul upon its conclusion an adjouri.-  uiptit was made to the hotel, where  refreshments were lavishly served to  a merry crowd, who gathered to offer  their felicitations. The newly-wedded  couple left by thc afternoon train on  a wedding tour "to the-Kootenay district, a number of friends being at the  station to see them off, and as the tr.iin  drew out, to the tune of freindly toots  from, the locomotive, they were  deluged with the inevitable shower*  of rice, and took with them many  hearty wishes for a long and prosperous married life from those who had  assembled to speed lliein on thuir  journey.���������Vernon News.    x  Mr. "O'Brien is pioprielor of tne  .Acme Soda Water Works in this city.  i  The Rough Riders.

Dan McRae is putting a  40 foot open cut in the Noble Three, a  galena     proposition.     McGregor     &  Leslie are  doing  their  seond   year's  assessment on the Jimmy Littlo. They  have driven  a 20 foot tunnel,   cross-  cutting the lead and have found  a big  showing of galena.   The Jimmy Little  adjoins the Adair group on the west  end.    East of the Adair group T.  D.  Ptckard   is   doing  the  second   year's  assessment on  the Uncle Jar.   There  is  a' good  showing   of    galena   and  arsenical iron ore.   East of the  Uncle  Jar, on the same lead, the first assessment work is. heing ��������� done, * while still  further  east  Messrs.   McCallum and  Christison are   doing  work-on  their  properties. '  The Adair Group.  Ed. Adair is down from Laforme  creek. There are six men working  two eight-hour shifts (at $3.50 a day)  on the Eureka. They are still driving  on the tunnel to crosscut the lead at a  depth of ISO feet, in fact Mr. Adair  thinks they will crosscut two or three  distinct ledges. A very hard rock is  being encountered: they are in 115  feet and expect to reach the flv-t lend  at 75 or SO feet more, which will take  them till the 1st. of October. There  are five leads of this high grade galena  proposition in 1,500 feet; three above  and two below the present tunnel.  Mr. Adair "ays they will not attempt  to treat or ship ore .-it all, until better  Iraiihjiortatioii facilities are afforded.  A steady system of development will  be pursued crosscutting leads and  drifting.  Pingston Creek.  G. B.

The. house of commons, Oltawa,
pp.csed, with only one dissenting vote,
the resolution oi the government pro-
yidins for Canada assuming five-
eigtheenths of the cost of the proposed
e Pacific   cable.     The     resolution    was
;' introduced by ihe Hon. Mr. Mulock
in a speech which drew forth the con-
g.auilaiions of Sir Charles Tupper,
who highly commended the postmaster-.general on the clearness with
which he had put forth the scheme
before the house.
Although the project is primarily
intended lo secure cable connexions
v.-ith Australia, it is hoped that arrangements will be made to use the
link in telesraphic communication
with Japan and China. This would be
done by utilizing the cables of the
Eastern Extension company. which
made so vigorous a fighi against the
Pacific cable as to nearly block the
enterprise. Indeed the project would
nave fallen through had noi very
strong . protests been made, in which
many journals took part. The Eastern

Report from Hansard
Mr. Frank Oliver  (Alberta)-���As representing  probably  onc-s'.xtii   of  tho
area which  is  affected  by.the  immigration voto, and as   representing iho
country  to which most of the immigration will tend, 1 would ask the indulgence  of   lhe  house      for  a short
while,    t  will  speak  on   this  subject
In a somewhat general manner at the
beginning, and 1 call the attention of
the  house  lo  the  largo vote  for  im-
m I "a tion    and  tlie  conseaii3u-:  necessity for understanding what results wo
are striving to obtain by the expenditure of  that money.    To  begin with,
it would be well to divide our immigration  into two parts,  namely,    that
part   whicli     we     consider    valuable
enough    to warrant us paying  out. a
large sum of money for. secondly, that
thiil  part which   wo   do not consider
sullieiciuly   desirable   to   warrant   us
expending money lo encourage.   It is,
1  bcliovc. thoroughtly understood,lhat.
there nro  these  two  divisions uf our
immigration   expenditure.     We   send
ii rii-eat nuinber of      agents io Groat
lii'ilaln and ihe United States and wc
pay   I hem  considerable  salaries,     lie-
cans'-  we believe ll to be in tne hiu'n-
esl   degree   desirable     to    get   immigrants   from   these   countries.        We.
'thcieforo   spend    a   large   amount   ol
money,  not only  for the purpose    of
getting Immigrants,  but for the purpose   of   gelling   desirable   and   valuable   immigrants.     But,   sir,   the   results we have received  from that expenditure  in  actual   heads of  point';:
tion received, is not very much greater than that per head wh'.i.'h we have
received without, so it appears, without any serious expenditure of money.
There is .the  How  of immigration towards   us   without    any   considerable
expenditure,  and  it  is   that phase  of
the immigration business which T pro
pose  particularly  to  discuss.      I lake
the  liberty lo do so because the district which 1 represent    and close to
the place at which' I. reside, has been
most favored  by this particular class
of immigrants.    I  am probably  more
familiar  personally  with  it than ani
other member of thc house and therefore 1 may be excused for talking wilh
special reference to' that subject.
Il docs not seem  to  mc to be  fair
to   sa>:       Wo     have     received,   say.
10,000  immigrants n   a year, and    we
have spent $200,000 or ?300.0.���) lo _et
these immigrants; when half of these
immigrants camo  of  their own  volition   ami   without     any     serious   expenditure  ou   our  part   to  get  them.
There is a, question as ��� to the  deslra-
IniiLy of these people coming hero at
all, and   I speak  on  that point.    Mr.
Chairni!in,I wish to speak not from   :he
puint of tho government of the  clay,
nor  from the point of too opposition
of the day.     1  wish  to  be understood
not, as  making  a  political   harangue,
nor que. Moiling any motive or policy
in any way  shap;.   or  manner,  but  I
stand here as the repesentattve of the
people of a large portion of the Nortli
West Territories, and  1 wish to place
before this house the views of  those
people in regard to this question whicli
so intimately concerns them.    I speak
from  that standpoint    and no  other.
Now,   in  arriving   at  the  standpoint,
or iu attempting to  arrive at it,    as
lo   whether    theirs      ic    the  correct
standpoint or not, 1 will ask the house
what   is   the  primary    object  of   immigration?    1 belive I  ain  in* accord
with  a  large  majority  of  lhe  people
throughout the North  "West when    I
say that the primary object of immigration is not simply to orodtice railway Iratlic, but lhat it is for the purpose of building up a. kindred,  and a
higher and  better civilization in  tha't
counti'v.    This  may  not  sound  practical  to some members of the, house.
We   "--���>-��  heard  other reasons siven.
but spea'-'-1"* 'or  the people who  are
on the ground.  I say that the settler
of  thc  North  West has an  ambition
other  than  simply to raise so  many
thousand bushels ot grain that a railway  company may get freight on  it.
or thai a-merchant may  make  profit
handling  it.     The  ambition     of     the
settlers <--��� -���--  North  West  is  not to
be  hewers of  wood  or    drawers      of
water for any corporation, or association,   or   class     of    the  community.
They  are  there as individual  citizens
of  this  country,   with   ambitions just
as high  and   feeling,   just as  delicate

it is said: Look at the example
of the united States; thero is a country which has grown great by reason
of" opening its doors wide lo the
world. Woll. let us see. The
United States had a population ol
over :'.0,000,000 before tho general influx ot European immigration began..
We in Canada have possibly a population of 5.000.000. There was no
possibility of the original population
of the United States being overwhelmed bv the- influx ot foreigners
from Europe, but there is every possibility of tho population of northwestern Canada being overwhelmed.
We must not forget the differences
our situations; and we must not forget that, after an experience of many
vears of t'-e open door to the worldwide immigration, the United States
years ago saw their mistake and to, a
verv great extent shut the door. Now,
it the example of the United States
was good at one time, why is it not
good now? Surely the more mature judgment of the United States is
as valuable to us as the less mature.
If a nation of sixty or 'seventy millions finds it necessary to shut the
door to indiscriminate immigration,
is it not more necessary for a country
of five millions, especially when the
part of ...ie country affected, in which
ettle in large numbers, were  it not
for these Galicians.      In fact,  where
these Galicians have settled, many of
the others have moved away.
An honorable member:    AVhy?
Mr. Oliver:      Because they are nol
desirable  neighbors.      I  am   sorry   I
cannot agree in all that has heen said
of  these  people  and   do not wish   to
paint them   in   unduly      dark  colors,
hut  feel  bound  to  state the facts  as
they exist in my part of the country,
at all events I have inquired wnether
any settlers have moved away on account, of the proximity of the people,
and have the best authority for saying   mat  the   yhave.      People      who
were  ou  the   lands   hefore  the  Galicians came, when the     Galicians did
come, and thoy saw no prospect     of
other settlers  of their own raco, nationality,      ideas     and       civilization
coming,  left,      some  of them      their
places, and somo went to the States,
and  somo  to other  settlements.  That
occurred  in  two Galician settlements
in   that  pari,   of   the   country.      One
swallow does not make a summer and
one Instance does not make a general
'case, and on the olher hand you may
say mat a generality does    not provo
anything.      But l givo you the actual
facts   which   speak      for   themselves.
People have loft tlieir places becauso
tho  Galicians   came   in  and      settled
near them.      These other people are
jtho   pioneers   and   not  the  Galicians,
Ibut the latter camo  in and   had  lho
advantage ' of   tho   experience   of   the
lothers.   and   they  settled      in   places
'���which  would   be considered  desirable
'for "eulomont  by other  people  were
it not.  for tho Tact that theso Galicians camo there.     It is not necessary
that thev should occupy every quarter
section in ordor to keep other people
out.   because   lhey   have   taken   up   a
tract of country about 25 miles      in
ilengo.,   and   there   no   other  settlers
'will go, although these Galicians have
not occupied   every      other      quarter
section.      ^-   i'"i' face      of  it,   it is
plain that this is a very serious question.      AA'hile   wo   havo   not   suffered
tiny very serious loss so far, T would
not be doing justice lo the distirc.t T
represent were  I nol to  place before
jthis house'and  government  the  fact
H-hat there is danger, very serious, to
;t!ie settlement ot the North AVest, and
(particularly that part ot  the country
Trom   the   influence   of   these   Galicians.      I say so partlculary because T
mink I havo the honor of the largest
sharo ot   the  settlement      of      theso
people.     They seem to think wo have
thc   most  desirable  country  for  they
ire  coming  in  there      in   increasing
numbers.       T   understand   that  there
re other members from other sections
who ho.- different views.     There aro
members from Ontario and the maritime   provinces  who   hold      different
views.       Well,   I   am   willing'  to   let
everybody   speak   for  himoslf,   but   I
would   respectfully   suggest       to   tho
government thnt in Northern Alberta
v.*c have all-the Galicians wc can sat-
isfactrily  assimilate   at  present,   and
if the  honorable  minister of the  interior can suggest any policy whereby
these   peoplo  can   be directed   to   the
localities represented  by' these  other
gentlemen who desire them  so much,
1  havo- no objection   to  that      being
done. But do not send them to
Normern Alberta, for we have all we
can successfully deal with, and I
would be very glad to have them sent
to thc County of __~ontenuc, or tho
city ... __,���. John, or the district of
Saskatchewan, or any other place
wnere their presence is desired,
where there is a field for them, and
where they will fill a long felt want'
But we do not want them in Edmonton, for we aro already fully sup-

and determined voice.     He sat facing
the judges with his hands resting on

from the unintelligent way  in which
the tickets were alloted took the lead

The old guard  of  the  Grit press   is  raising its   voice   with   no uncertain  sound against the rapidly  increasing  annual expenditure of the government,-;  Thc   present   Laurier   administration  went to the. polls iu  1800  steeped to  the lips| with  promises of  retrenchment.    Sir  Richard  Cartwright was  ���������'aghast"   that   year    because    Mr.  Foster's   budget   showed   a     contemplated      expenditure    of    $38,000,000.  There is not a word out of him in 1S09  when over fifty millions of appropriations are demanded by his colleagues  and granted   by   the   Grit  majority.  Another plank in  the Grit Policy of  Purity,   Retrenchment  and   Reform,  propounded in  '90,  was the abolition  of subsidies to railways.     These were  either to be entirely  abolished or at  the outside only given  to projects of  national importance,  linking at least  one   province with another.   In  1899  the country  is asked by these same  reformers to put up six millions for  railway subsidies, for projects scarcely  any of which go outside of the bounds  of their own province, many of which  are to be built to gridiron Nova Scotia  with small parallel lines of of a purely  local   importance   and   one  of which  connects a mine   with   a  wharf  and  another a village   with   a hotel.   No  wonder the old guard,   t.ho Liberals,  whose   Liberalism   was   a  matter  of  conviction and not a merehypocritical  excuse for catching votes and climbing  into office, are still as much aghast in  1899 as was Sir Richard in 1800.      We,  in this province, can afford  to  remain  as disinterested critics or tlio unholy  show now heing performed at Ottawa,  as we get little or nothing out of all  these large sums, in spite of the fact  that we contribute more per head to  the revenue than  any other province  in the Dominion.

While Mr. Blair is putting up  funds  to build railways to hotels in   those  provinces in the east now basking in  the     pleasant     warmth    of   Premier  Laurier's sunny ways,  not one single  cent has been granted to any  railway  projected tn open up the, most promising province of the  whole  Dominion.  In vain Rev. Maxwell pleaded  for  the  V. V. & E. and Hewitt Bostock.  Esq..  for a projected line hetween  Arhcroft  and Cariboo.    Mr.  Blair would have  none of them.   Bostock could no more  get a dollar than he can  get the  constituency divided  or.a postoflice   for  Ferguson or persuade the Department  of the Interior to hunt up Pete  Peterson's title deeds.    It seems  to  matter  very little what it is,   great or  small,  or what department is affected. Public  Works  or  Post   Office,   Railways   or  Interior, our   only   Bostock "can't do  it you know," " aud that  seems to    he  Ii isTin ten tions"  to  transfer  Purnell's famous description of Justin  McCarthy to our own case, he may be  " a very nice young gentleman for a  small tea party, he most certainly was  notintended hy nature for the job  of  nietuberforoKootenay.

Henderson's tenure of the oflice ��������� of  attorney-general will be exceedingly  short. !aiid the leaders in politics in  this citv are averse to taking the bait  offered" to secure endorsatibn of the  political- turncoat. Tliere w.cre no  politics, properly speaking, in the contest, result ing in Mr. Henderson's return at;the general election, and there  are none in the present move, by which  an irresistible combination is being ar-  raved against him.  A meeting of influential men .was  held to-day resulting in the conclusion  that in the interest of common honesty  in public life it is the duty of the constituency to fittingly resent, Mr. Henderson's" betrayal o'f his party. Tbe  commanding nature of the opposition  developing may he understood from  t he fact that two eit izens of the highest,  ���������standing have.consented to take t.he  field if desired, these being R. L.*. Reid  and D. J. Minin. In politics. Reid is a  pronounced Conservative, while Munn  is a leading Liberal, bnt oh this occasion thev will work together, placing  themselves absolutely in the hands of  a caucus of their friends, and each  agreeing tn abide by the decision and  work feir the success of who ever is  chosen.  There spems to be little doubt that  either would , defeat Mr. Henderson,  even when he has the advantage of a  portfolio. ;  Closing of King Street.  To the Editor ot thc Hr.___n.

In   future   anybody   who   wants   flre  insurance will have to  contribute  his  quota to "-epay tbe particularconipaiiy  with which he is insuring for  the  fee,  which the town imposes before  it can  do liusinois.      If a bonne owner wants  lo insure  his   dwelling,   for  instance,  for SC00 for a year,   and it   is   a   risk  which now would pay SI per  hundred  or a premium of $0 on  the  policy,   he  will have  to pay beside."   three  cents  for every  dollar of the  premium,   or  $0.18 in all.   This does  not look  very  much; but suppose a drygoods  merchant carrying $20,000 on his stock  at  82.50 per hundred.     He is now paying  S500 a year for his insurance.    From  this out he will have to add $15 to this  amount to help   the companies   pay  their  municipal   fee.    Bnt  much   or  little, what is the use of the people of  this  town   taxing   the fire insurance  companies, if {the only result is that  they have to pay the tax themselves.
