In the jubilee year  he represented Canada at Boston,  and has recently spoken with remarkable effect and oratorical splendor on the subject of Canada and  the Empire, and tho despatch of the  Canadian contingents. In tho speech  delivered In 187G there was one passage that may bo regarded as truly  prophetic, Mr. Davin said: ' That  day will never come when scattered  nations of the British race, looking  with loyal love from every compass  to the  little mother isles���������  " Girt by- the dim strait sea,  .And multitudinous wall of wandering  wave,"  and reposing safe and glorious in  that sapphire embrace, shall turn  round to call on Canada to add her  voice to swell the peal ot filial gra-  tulatlon, of proud assurance, of cooperation, and, should need he, of  help���������and turn in vain.'

'That will  carry' mo to ,' he said, naming a little  way station, 'and between times I'll  think It over.' 'Very well.' I replied,  'but I give you notice right now that I  won't carry you a foot farther unless you  put up the money.'  "He mnilc no answer and began carefully studying his ticket. When we got to  tho station, I was by his side. . 'Well,  sir,' I said, 'what do you intend1 to dn?'  'I intend to ride on this ticket,' be snarled. 'I've road it over, aud it's perfectly  good.'

The I  station where this happened was in the  heart of a wild moonshiue district, aud  the crowd that collected all sympathized  with the passenger. As wc pulled out  they stoned thc train.

Halifax,   April   11���������Bishop   Courtney has received a letter  Irom Captain Cox of the second Canadian contingent from Capetown,  in which is  the   following:  "The Canadians' flrst ^contingent  had heavy marching for several days  and reached Paardeberg when'fighting was hottest. Imperial officers say  they never say such cool men. They  went in to action laughing, smoking  and telling jokes. Thc Cornwall  regiment was with them. The colonel of the Cornwalls told Colonel  Otter that the Canadians would have  to cl nrgc across a piece of veldt SOO  yard ��������� wide with a cross fire raking  .it. Cc'onel Otter demurred at making  his i 2n charge at so long a distance."  Bulwayo, April 3.���������Colonel Plumer  engaged the Boers between Ranil-  tebahama and Mafeking on March  31st. The Boers appeared in considerable force six miles from Mafeking  aud to prevent his force being outflanked on both sides Colonel .Plumer  had to withdraw from Ramitehama-  bama and retire to his camp. The  engagement lasted three hours and  the retirement was carried out in  good  order under a heavy fire.  Saturday's fight in the environs  of Mafeking was conducted on Colonel Plumer's side under great difficulties, he being in the proximity  of the Boer laager whence reinforcements could be promptly sent to the  burghers, whilst there - was little  cover available for the British when  - the fight began, the plain being but  sparsely wooded "and the railroad embankment, the chief protection, being  only ' two feet high. The men behaved 'gallantly, however, and the  officers were exceptionally conspicu-  otfp in the affair. With the exception  of a few rounds fired by the British  Maxim, the fire on both sides was entirely by rifle. Half the British,  officers were more or less seriously  wounded.  At the conclusion of the fight  Commandant Snyman Informed Col.  Badon-Powell that-he-had some Brit-  - ish -wounded and hoth Baden-Powell  and Plumer. sent out ambulances.  Col. Plumer was wounded but was  able to carry" out his duties.  It. is reported that the advance  guard of Lord Methuen's relief force  has left Vryburg for Mafeking.

London, April 12.���������The Bloemfon-'  tcin' correspondent of _ the Morning  Post , telegraphing Tuesday says:  "The Boers to thc southeast are exhibiting an indecision ot movement,  possibly in consequence of our occupation of the railway. Bodies of the  enemy are still moving from Win-  burg * southward through Thaba  . Llhiu. Their destination has not  been ascertained. Thc Boers in tho  neighborhood of Paardeberg show no  disposition to interrupt our communications with   Kimberley  from  which  I point civil convoys are still arriving."  Tho Bloemfontein correspondent of  the Times, telegraphing Wednesday,  says: "It is announced in general  orders that General Sir Herbert  Chermside has been been appointed  to command the 3rd division, vice  General Sir William Gatacre, ordsred  home to England. General Brabant's  force is confident of being able to  hold out. The Boers after showing  considerable dash, have wavered  when it camo to the final issue and  have struck at the least vital spot,  where they are greatly handicapped  by their proximity to the Basuto  border. Owing to the strategetical  considerations since the enemy's  movement became defined there need  be little anxiety as to thc safety of  the Cape border."  The Bloemfontein correspondent of  the Daily Telegraph in a despatch  dated Thursday, says: "The permanent defences are nearly completed, so  that the town can be held by a relatively small garrison. A British  scout who visited Bloemfontein  waterworks reports the machinery  and dams intact. Only a few Boers  remain In tho neighborhood. The  enemy ha3 trekked six miles north  and formed a laager near Watervnl.  News from General Brabant at  Wepener shows that all is gong satisfactorily there. The troops are  getting new khaki serge uniforms  and   boots." ������  Thero is no further news yet from  Wepener.  FROM NATAL  Elandslaagte, April 10.���������Last night  the Boers set fire to the grass on  two hills almost on their extreme  wings.- The motive has not heen ascertained, but the incident discloses  the fact that their position extends  over 15 mile3 on a continuous row  of hills from Jones kop on the British left to a kopje commanding Sunday's River bridge on the British  right. During the night the Boers  moved most of their cannon. There  has been some unimportant skirmishing today. The British still  command Sunday's River bridge. No  new developments from yesterday's  affair are expected. '-.t  Bulletin: General Buller reports  that the enemy attacked his. right  flank while he was engaged in changing his position, but our artillery  silenced their guns * and they did not  press the attack.

A LETTER FROM   MANILA  A FORMER  CAL6ARIAN  HERALD  SENDS THE  An Interesting  Description  of a Sold-  ier'i Life'in the Far East  To the Editor of the Herald:  Dear Sir: Having been for several years a resident of Alberta, a  letter from me  interest  to   many    friends    and  acquaintances who still reside there. .  At piesent I am a member of D  troop, 4th Cavalry, now serving  Uncle Sam in-the Philippine Isles.  On July 13th, 1S99_ the City of Para,  of- 3500 tons burden steamed out of  San Francisco harbor having on board  four companies of the '24th infantry  (colored), D and H troops of the  4th cavalry and some., men of the  engineer corps, compiising in -ali a  total of about 1100 men and officers,  bound for Manila. The effect of passing" the Golden Gate and striking the  ocean was , rather disheartening and  lots of us wished we were * on dry  land again. However after, a day or  so we found our sea legs and thought  no more of the rocking and swaying of the, vessel.     Arriving after a  miles away across a range of mountains. Still it worked, and they gave  up without firing a shot. Much hardship was endured, wading rivji .,  marching over the rocky trails utulei  the hot sun and through incessant  rain, often crossing a creek at eaca  mile on our journey. Many of our  men became sick and some of the n  never recovered. Food was scar..e  because of the bad roads. We participated in many skirmishes though  our   troop     only   had   two   wounded.  Biac-nohato (Broken Rock), the  place where Aguinaldo signed a treaty  of peace with Spain on payment of  $30,000 was taken by us. It was a  veritable Gibi altar and deemed impregnable. Although the insurgents  had one time killed suu Spaniards  there, they killed no Americans, giving up the fight in short time and  taking to the woods. They had fortified a large rock alongside a creek  and in their caves we found much  ammunition and rice. A few determined men could have held an army  at bay. At San Miguel I saw General  Lawton smiling at us from a window  as his old regiment rode by his  quarters. His daring capture of  Gcronlmo,  the   Apache   chief, w__- :u*-  compir.shed while he was serving  with the 4th cavalry. Two days after  we heard of his death, shot tiiruugh  tho lungs at San Mateo, while attacking that town. He waa beloved by  aU the arm"/"and his-death was a  great blow and deeply regretted by  the United States.  Christmas   was     spent    at  Pasay,  having a grand dinner with wine aud  beer served to all alike. It was  funny to he hunting the shade, with  the thermometer registering 86 degrees..  Leaving barracks on January 2nd,  our next trip was south through tb-s  provinces of Cavite, Eatangas, and  Santa Ciuz, and skirting along the  shores of Laguna de Bay, a larg.  inland sea.  This part of the island we found a  veritable Garden of Eden. Day after  day we rode through plantations of  tall cocoanut tree's while orange and  banana trees just abound. The fruit  suited the' so.diers first class. Corn,  sugar and tobacco were growing iu  every available spot. Many rU'.s  may    prove of some ! fields were on hill sides.    A splendid  employed.  fixed bayonets were with'10 yards of i few  days'  pleasant voyage at'Hono-  tbem. Seven ot the enemy, were killed, seven were wounded and 51 made  prisoners. Besides      Lieutenants  Boyle and Williams, Sergeant Patrick.  Campbell wa3 killed and ten of our  men wounded. * Williams was killed  immediately after the white flag  had been held up. The perpetrator  of the crime was at once shot.  1*!' "Lord Methuen Bpeaks in the highest terms of the intelligent manner  in which the Imperial Yeomanry and*  the' Kimberley Mounted Corps behaved.

Water is diverted  from some river and often pumped  to a considerable height hy water-  wheels, poured over the topmost terrace and then trickles down from  one field to another., An earn^'-s  amount "of labor was required, tons  and tons of earth being removed  and leveled off. In many , towns  water was flowing through a system  of open cement and lrock drains in  front of the houses or in the centre of the streets.  The people are industrious, cleanly  and absteminous. Drunkenness is>  extremely rare among them. Chawing the bethel nut seems to satisfy  any longing for stimulants. The1  men's dress consists of white cotton,  shirts worn" outside of the trousers  and straw hats. , The .women wear  a" loose flowing garment .with wide  sleeves reaching nearly to the elbow,  dresses of multicolored pina cloth,  finer than cotton, and. generally wear  wooden shoes ..like a sandal with  heeis. Their complexion is ot a  dark brown, like the Metis, with  black" eyes and hair, and milk white  teeth.unless discolored by the bethel  nut chewing they indulge in. Music  seems to be easily learned by them,  each town has a brass and string,  band of 30 to'40 performers. Pianos  are by no means rare " and I have  hearff native women play "with skill  on "their favorite instrument, the  harp. They dance gracefully the  Spanish figures," although waltzing  is not in vogue" with them. As a rule  .thev are small in.stature and slightly  made, few men being over SftTe^in^  though they are extremely muscular.  The loads they are able to carry hears  out this assertion. In large baskets  they carry enormous loads suspended"  from  each  end of    a    bamboo pole  placed " across-,the���������-shoulder The.  native ponies are smaller  than those  of   the   North  West   although    very  strong and  hardy and    fed on rice,  molasses and grass.    The buffalo or  caribou  are  used  for  heavy  freighting  and   plowing.   They  are  powerful,  very  slow  and  require    n  hath  two or three times a day.   They haul  loads  of  2000  and   2500    pounds   ou  low carts wilh wheels cut out of solid  blocks of wood.    When driven  by a  Chlno,  seated    on   its  hack  between  the shafts, and assisted by an American soldier who understands the judicious   use   of   two-syllable    words,  applied to. man and beast in a loud  tone of voice,  they  will  travel at a  spaed of two miles per hour. Rivers  are  plentiful   and   during   the   rainy  season the whole country is one vast  muiihold.    Boats   are  used   then     in  the streets of Manila.   The native canoe  is   usually   hewn  out  ot  a   log,  often  of mahogany,  stern  and prow  being  of  the    same    shape.      Short  paddies are used of different shapes.  Cascues,   largo  canoe   shape.   harg..s,  high at each end, used    for carrying  ireight   to  and  from  sea  vessels  on  the bay and towed by steam launches.  Generally two families live on them,  one   in   each   of   tho     covered   ends,  shaded   by   cocoanut    matting     and  lam boo   work.       In  shallow    water,  such as rivers, the cascoes tire pushed  along  by  men  with    long poles,  -walking en a platform projecting out  from the vessel's side, level with   the  wjt'vr.

NOTE AND COJUMENT  Snys the Toronto Telegram: "There  i������ not enough virtue on either side of  Parliament at Oltawa to guarantee to  the people of Manitoba and the west  l hnl roads limit largely with public  money shall be honestly capitalized.  Manitoba need expect no help from  Ottawa, but Hon. Hugh John Mac-  Donald can help the province by  applying the principle of Government  ownership to every new line. The  Manitoba Premier is fi.'ce to face with  just such an opportunity as bis  distinguished father would have  improved. Hi.-, past alllliations should  count, for little. His present alfilia-  t ions me with the people, and if hois  faithful to the people over a few things  at Winnipeg, he may become rulci*  over many things at Ottawa."  Just so. It is the political chance of  a lifetime. The west from Winnipeg  to Vancouver is solid on this question  of government ownership of railways-���������  There are of course some people who  have not quite digested the notion lint  their number is becoming fewer every  day. If anybody in this province has  any doubts on the subject let him run  in llio. coming provincial election as an  avowed opponent of government  ownership and as a supporter of the  old bonus system and see where he  gets oil at. It is not.a political question at all. Both sides of politics in  British Columbia nre pledged lo it and  at the next Dominion election candidates on either side will have to make  plain their standing on this point if  they want to get a hearing.  Because it is then that the people  will have their first real chance of  getting a stroke in for (heir belief in  this article of the new social creed.  The question never came up at the last  election. The Liberals were allowed  to get in on the plea that they were  not as these wicked Tories in this or  any other matter. But the people  have found that as far as railway  bonnsscs were concerned the difference  between the sinful Conservatives and  the pious Liberals is only discernible  by a double magnifying" political  microscope. Practically the main  diiVeience is that the Grits in office  seem to bo easier for railway men,  such as Bill McKenzie and Danny  Mar.n, lo handle, then were theii*  opponents. But this won't go down  out westauy more.  No more bonuses and government  uwuoi'-liip is what the west means to  have aud means its candidates to  support. On these points the western  representatives elected to serve in the  next Dominion parliament, should form  Revel, loke and Selkiik lodges I. O.  O.

It is useless  foi the hired men of th'i corporations  to say the idea is fantastic, visionary  or revolutionaiy. It is nothing of the  kind. It is a straight business plan by  which the people of the west intend t.o  improve their general condition in  this world. It is tbe present condition  of affairs, wliich if described as the  initiated know it, would lie found to  be too fantastic and incredible for  sober men to believe.
