At the last meeting of the Montreal board of trade, the following  resolutions were submitted from the  council of the board.and passed by a  majority of forty rotes to thirty  two:  . _.*. ereas, in the opinion of this  congress the time haa arrived when  Great  Britain,  tier  colonies   and   de  Sendencies, should take -united action  or the adoption of all measures con-  Cucive to  the strength, progress and  .���������permanent solidarity of the Empire;  end  -Whereas it U generally recogniz-  efl that the colonies Bhould contribute  Towards thc coat of the naval and  military defence otf the empire and  further that an advantageous commercial bond ta one of the .strongest  links in national unity, and that the  maintenance and strengthening of  trade Is the keystone of a nation's  successful development;  - Therefore be it resolved. That in  the opinion of this congress the  ���������bonds of tho British Empire "would  he materially strengthened and the  union of the various parts of Her  Majestys dominions greatly consolidated,  (a) By the colonies contributing  towards the naval and military defence of the Empiro;  (b) By the adoption of a commercial arrangement that, while con-  ���������erving the present freedom of action  as to the fiscal policies most suitable  to the geographical conditions ana  diversified tntereets of the individual  countries composing the Empire, will  provide for the imposition of a  moderate special ad valorem, duty on  Importation from foreign countries  to be levied uniformly by all parts of  the British empire, thus, not only providing revenue for Joint Imperial responsibilities, but also inaugurating  a policy of mutual benefit whereby  each component part of the Empire  would receive an advantage in' trade  aa a result of its national relationship.  Be it further resolved. That in  order to make the foregoing operative, the chair shall appoint, before  this congress dissolves, a representative and proportionate committee of  borne and colonial delegates to demise a scheme based upon the above  resolutions, and report to this congress, and that a copy of these  ��������� resoutions be officially forwarded to  the home government, and to the  governments of tho colonies and de-  "    Bendenclee*���������~ ~������������������ "-*���������"t_���������-  2. The decimal system of weights,  measures and  currency.  That the Montreal board of trade  believing" that most beneficial results would follow the adoption by  Gte British empire of a uniform system of decimal currency and weights,  ������ldorses the principle, and hereby  ��������� instructs Its delegates to the forth  coming congress in London to  favor such measures as shall lead  to the  adoption of   that system  is the flrst and greatest necessity of  the situation.  "The settlement will not be in the  interests of any one class. T ho.e  who talk at random about this war  being carried on in the interests of  capitalists do not understand th*  spirit of the British people. Wo  began it in defence of life and liberty  and we will maintain it till these  precious heritages of our people are  securely guarded tor all time. We  do not give our kin to death and  fill our land with widows and orphans in order that our shares may  rise a point or two. Capitalists have  their rights like other citizens, but  assuredly they will receive no special  consideration.  "Those who have suffered for their  loyalty   in   South   Africa   must    be  amply  rewarded.      Those who,  after  swearing fealty to the    Queen, hare  joined onr  enemies,  will  have  their  doings  strictly  scrutinized.     To  the  men of tho Free State and the Transvaal we  bear no vindictive feelings.  They  have   fought  us   bravely,    we  recognize  tho stability of their character, and no pains will be spared on  our part to make them loyal and contented members ot our empire. They  have hy their own acts shattered the  fabrics of  their  old republics.      We  will find them a new constitution, in  which   corruption   will  be  ropressed,  in   which   education,    progress    and  freedom will flourish.   The land over  which Lord Roberts   and    his   men  march will never pass from our dominions.

Ii* their  journey  to  Capetown    they  left the  old order behind them.      Henceforth  they will be subjects of our Queen."  "We do not suppose that the   task  before us is an easy one.   Some may  try to turn U3 from our purpose by  threats    of a rebellion    ot tho Cape  Dutch. The threats fall on deaf ears.  If a misguided  section  of the   Cape  Dutch were so mad as to do this we  should  know how    to  deal  with  it.  As the Northern States met the uprising of the Confederates, so should  we meet those who sought to drive  us from the path of duty.   With assured   peace   the   industrial   progress  of the land will advance apace.   Railways will be multiplied,  schools increased,   roads  opened  up.     At    the  earliest   moment   all   possible   power  of local government will be granted  to the people.

Mr. Fielding Delivers His Annual  Financial Report  .  THE IRREGULAR  HORSE TROOPS.  IcEACHRANISM SUITS MONTANA  - The Montana Stock Growers'. Journal, published in Miles " City, thus  gloats over the blow dealt the . .1-  borta stock Industry by a Canadian  official whose maintenance in' office is  a disgrace to the government and a  dangerous detriment to ' the whole  Canadian West:  "The purchase of Montana horses to  mount the Strathcona volunteers for  South African service, called forth a  protest in the Canadian house of parliament, the Alberta member saying  that if the Territories were good  enough to get men from they are just  as good to get horses from, Lord  Strathcona is putting up the stuff tor  the corps, however, and insisted upon  the Montana horses, so the Alberta  folks can still round up their com*  ponies on Canadian soil, while the  Strathcona Horse rides down the enemy on Montana cayusea."  Dr. McEachran should be removed.  Both in his private and public capacity he is extremely unpooular and  obnoxious to a large majority of  Alberta 6tockmen. As Chief Veterinary Inspector he is incompetent,  malicious, unscrupulous and a constant danger to the ranching industry. Being a resident of Montreal  he is largely ignorant of the changing conditions in the range country  and out of touch with the ranchers.  He is constantly doing what he sheuld  not do and neglecting to do what he  Bhould. It is ..the overwhelming  opinion of the" stockmen that he  should be either dismissed or relieved of any jurisdiction in the Wast,  and his position filled by a qualifl ,d  veterinarian of common sense and professional qualifications, who no doubt  exlsts.and who would be an Impartial,  disinterested, and single-minded  official���������Such a man for instance as  Dr. Rutherford, M.P.  Ottawa, March 83.���������Hon. W. S.  Fielding opened hia budget speech  this afternoon.  There aro four principal    features  in Mr. Fielding's speech.      There is  an increase in the preference   to be  given to Britain in the tariff to 23-1-3  per cent.;    a proposal to be made to  Trinidad   looking  to  free   trade  be-  tweon the island and Canada with a  very few exceptions:    the admission  of Canadian securities to the trustee  lists of England:    and a surplus of  17,600,000 for the current fiscal year.  Mr. Fielding    was   received    with  ���������heera when he rose to address the  house.     During    the    year     ending  June 30 last ho said the revenue collected was *46,741,294.    This amount  exceeded the anticipations he expressed last year by $108,850, and showed  an  increase of $6,186,000   over  what  was  received  in the    previous* year.  Ia miscellaneous revenues there were  large receipts from the Yukon, $600,-  000, and  the earnings ot government  railways.   The only Item which show  ed a diminution was the post office  department, on account of the penny  postage.      The   increase   in   customs  was general ,and in the case of excise there was  an    increase    in  all  articles.     The  total   increase  in  excise is $1,77������,12������.    He  expected that  in a tew months, probably 12,   that  the revenue ot the post oflice department would be as large   as it was  before the introduction of tho penny  postage.      Tho   expenditure   charged  to the consolidated fund for the year  was  $41,003,500   or  an    increase    of  $3,070,974   over    the   previous    year,  leaving a surplus ot $4,837,794.  Mr.Flelding next explained how the  opposition dealt with capital account  charging it in their calculations  against the present government to  ordinary expenditure and leaving It  off when treating of the expenditure  under the late government. Last  year there was expended for capital  account $9,137,553. There was no  difference between the bookkeeping  of the present government and their  predecessors.  Turning to the affairs of the current year he estimated that the total  revenue would pass the fifty million  mark. Up to the flrst of the present  month there was an expenditure of  $25,018,290. There would be largo  expenditure between now and the 1st  of July, therefore he would give a  very liberal allowance for that and  would estimate the expenditure of  the year at $43,175,000. "I anticipate,"  said Mr. Fielding, "that at the close  of the fiscal year .making all our cal-  * ������ulatlon9 and keeping our accounts  in exactly the same way as our predecessors, that we will have a surplus  _rf $7,625,000.   0   British   Government   Waking   Up  Their Value in the Transvaal.  to  It Is said that nearly a. thousand  American- soldiers -In the Phllllpplnee  have either suicided or become Insane  slnoe the beginning of the war.

CANADIAN   BUDGET  London, March 26.���������-The Times dealing editorially this morning with the  Canadian budget says: "Tho point of  interest which transcends all others  is the patriotic spirit of imperial solicitude in which Mr. Fielding's  speech was couched, delivered anil  acclaimed. Proceeding to discuss  fiscal relations the editorial points out  the difficulty       England would  have whenever Imposing a tariff duty  for the benefit of her colonies and expresses a hope that the solution of a  problem of an Imperial Zolverein will  eventually be found in a common acceptance of free trade rather tha_n a  reversion to protection.   o   DUKE   OF   CONNAUGHT  Military experts seem generally  agreed that the irregular horso now  in South African anu being sunt out  will, when properly organized, play  as Important a part in thfc crushing  of the Boers as our regular forces,  says the London Mall.

If the  character of the country admits, to  charge artillery with Infantry supports; In Bhort, ��������� Irregular horse must  be here, there and everywhere, and  always when least expected. Thut  is what irregular horse always has  done and what is expected of it in  the Transvaal.  The great virtue of irregular .horse,  and that ' which alone admits of Its  tackling theae multifarious duties, is  Its freedom from the need of mobilization���������that is, working from a single)  base. Instead of moving like a regular army, doing marches of so many  miles a day, and taking with them a  train of wagons carrying supplies that  need much guarding, tha ��������� men gallop  about a certain territory assigned to  them, and Just pop in wherever and"  whenever they see a chance to effect  as much 'destruction upon the enemy's  lines as possible. They live as best  they can upon the country In which  they are operating, and at most only  take with them a few pack horses or  mules to transport whatever forage  or extra supplies they carry.  Perhaps the best organization of irregular horse ever formed were those  that came into being during the civil  war In the United States, and perhaps  the   moat   successful   leader   of   them  was General Forrest of the Confederate forces. There never was any telling where he was, and General Grant  afterwards     said   in     his   "Memoirs"'  that   Forrest's   rough   riders   were  always' up  to  some    mischief " or other  when latest reports had it that he was  400 miles away. If the.amount of damage done to railways and the quantity  of supplies  that either were captured  or   desroyed   by   this   ubitiquous   general's   forces  were    summed    up  to a  total   in   dollars   it   would   reach   into  millions.      Another    depredating    and  dashing leader of rough riders on the  Confederate  side    was  little    General  "Joe" , "Wheeler, who afterwards    commanded the Amercian cavalry at Santiago  and  is  now  in command  of  a|  division in the Philippines.  Speaking of General Wheeler's efficiency at the beginning of the Span-  nlsh-Amerlcan war, Senator Davis, of  Missouri, , formerly a commander of  Union cavalry during the civil . war,  quaintly .and humorously confessed  that 'General -Joe* Wheeler is without  doubt the best man living today to  take command of a cavalry divlBion  operating anywhere. His methods are  sure, added Senator Davis, his attacks always well timed and - his  fighting qualities something terrific.  And I ought to know, for he chased  me through seven states, when wet  were  at it   together.  Instead of "Forward march!"

Tho company already owns and has paid for in full, the Trilby and Old Saul  properties in the famous Fish Kiver district, and a three-quarters interest in the May Bee mine, in the  Lardeau district one and a half miles from Ferguson Sufficient promoter's shares have been set aside for th������  purchase  of the remaining quarter. J  The May Bee is the sister claim to the now famous Nettie L, which has broken all records in British  Columbia for largo bodies of phenomenally rich ore. The May Bee and Nettie L were located together in  1~92 by Mr. W. B. Pool (who has been appointed manager of the Double Eagle Co.) Both claims carry identically  the same rich ore on tho surface and the same remarkable ledge runs through both, carrying high values.,  in gol<i, copper, silver and lead. The promoters have already spent $4,000 in developing the May Bee, with'  excellent results, and in order to place the mine quickly on a shipping basis the company now offers the publio  the opportunity of investing to a limited extent in fully paid and non-assessable treasury shares (par value  $1)  at   10 cents each.  Shares will be sold in blocks of 100 and upwards.

hy no means so interesting as Hon.
Jos. Martin's pronouncement or lhe
programmes of the New Westminster
convention. It is concerned mainly
with tho smaller details of legislation
and fails to indicate any hroad general
principles of social reform. It certainly can hardly he said to " discount,
any platform which has yet opened."'
as the IlKRAl.i) was informed that it-
would do, by Mr. Cotton's banner
be.irei' in Revelstoke. It may he
doubted if it will inspire any very-
wild enthusiasm among the electorate

potent standard -standard mound
which to rally the dismayed and dis-

Mr. Cfotton's " railway policy is all
his own. ft may quite safely ho anticipated that no other political leader
or would be leader is likely to steal
it He endorses state ownership but
thinks the provinco is nob in shape, to
adopt that principle either by the
constitution ol tho Dominion or from
a financial standpoint. What lie
proposes to do in order to stimulate
railway construction is to grant more
charters. It seems 11 simple nnd inexpensive plan. The only trouble with
it is that the experience of the past
seems unmistakeiihly to pinelaini that
it fails to make the desired connect ion.
If grunting charters would build railways every pass in the Kootenay
would he griJironed with them an.!
railway trains would he jostling each
other in every valley. Railway charters are as plentiful as good intent ions
are said to be in a certain place which
shall he nameless. But the number
of nulurvl, heaven appointed business,
mining and trade centres without
railway connection is still consid .iabli**
and constantly on the increase. ���>* The
Hishald doubts if Mi'. ' Cotton's -new
nnd original .idea will appeal very
strongly to. tliu"-iniiiginatio*.i of the

him iu power, when he of all other
public men in the province is directly
and personlly responsible for Unpolitical muddle anil business depression at present in existeme in the
country. The charges made by Ihe
Lieutenant-Governor remain unanswered, lie says that as long ago us
last August he repeatedly urged upon
Lbs Seiiilin-Cotton government, the
liei'i'-isity of holding an extra session
as a measure warranted be the K'C*uire-
inentb of the public welll'are. Who
can doubt that he was right or that
if Mr. Cotton had lieun wi.-e
and patriotic enough to follow
bis advice, the present evil condition
of affairs would have been very lurgi-ly
avoided. But no. Mr. Cotton ami his
followers determined to cling Lo power
at any cost. They knew that with their
diminished majority an extra session
could have only one result and that
result they decided to stave off till tne
~very Iasi 111 iiTTTte- ATs: a co'risecjTimice~
they faced the legislature for the
the transaction of puMic business
without being able to command a
sufficient following in the house 10
carry the business on. Two months
were wasted in aimless and useless
discussion, in intrigue*, "coalitions'
and a general display of political
gymnastics. When the end at last
came no business had been done and not
so much as a cent voted for the expenses of the administration for ihe
coming year. As a consequence lhe
development of Biitish Columbia is
going to be retarded for twelve whole
months. By tho time the hon-.e meets
again in July, gets down in bn-iiii* ..
and passes the csLiui'ite*., the lumiii.-r
will be nearly over and .ill pros-perl of
anything being done this si.m-.oii b\-

it about that for one. whole year

fall impassable for wheels, and for the
j'ear 1000 all communication within it
off the railway or river will have t.o he
made cither on foot or horseback,
while packtrains will furnish the nniy
feasible method of transport. Al. the

of all the help ami stiiimiiis to business annually alToided by tlie pro.ecu.

This is tlie record of. the Col.lon ad-
minslration in, this riding ami the
same complaint is re-echoed .from
every- constituency. ft will take
something more than a proposal to
stimulate railway construction by
granting more rail way charters to wipe
that record out.
But if Mr. Cotton is. as tha
has suggested, slightly narrow and
limited in his f-urvey of the political
field, no such i*h.*i 1 gf can be brought
against his Revelstoke henchman, Mr.
