LATEST PA'J  TAINS,  TTEliNS.  FINANCING THE  SCHOOLS  There is a senseless cry going round  that if this five dollar pull tux is  imposed, then education in British  Columbia tnnnot be called free, People  who tepcut sut-h fully as that must  think thut free education is handed  down nut of heaven. They would iind  it it weary hunt for any community  enjoying free education in tho sense  thai nobody is taxed to pay for it.  That argument, is mil tenable ngainst  thc poll tax. The real objection to the  ineienso in the tax is because by the  method of collecting it adapted in this  province n very large proportion of ills  not paid at all aiul of thu purl lhat. is  paid," the winking men contribute the  greater part, for the simple mason  that' as it is collected through their  employori, they have not the same  chance, of escaping payment as is  enjoyed and taken advantage of ton.  very large extent by other patties. If  in Victoria om, of an estimated population ol 25.000 only .*S10,0u-)ii year has  been collected on the $S poll tax, it  menus th.it only 3300 odd people p-iid  their tax and if mini that number were  to lie sitbliaeled art those, who*-o tuxes  were nob collected through their  einployets. the lli'UAr.B imagines lhat  the iniquity of thi-. method of collection would be most glaringly app.n ent.  Of cuiiise in principle n three dollar  poll tax is .is objectionable as one* of  live dollars. But in practice it is  different���������two dollars ditleieul. And  when all is said and done the only  argument for the raise, which touches  the nvei age elector on the spot is thai,  it is the only wav by wliich the  government can hit lhe Chinese. -  TAB1.E CLOTHS     -. .

The' Bylaw for the Purchase of the  Waterworks and Electric Light Plant  Carried by a Big Majority.  There was no very great excitement  appiuent in town on Wednesday over  the voting for the bylaw to purchase  tlve plant of. the Revelstoke Water,  Light Si, Power Go, but all the same  the vote was steadily piled up all day  until 153 ballots~had been cast hy four  o'clock, when the poll closed. Out of  this number tho lusult was declared ns  follows :  For the bylaw ' II. t  Against     "       10  The vote in favor of purchasing the  plant is so. overwhelming ,as to leave  not >i shadow of a douht as to the  opinion of the riitepaycis on the matter and tho Hkiiai.d feels sure that  with careful and competent manage-  inent of tlie newlv acqulied property  their decision is one, which Revelstoke  will never legiet.

Visits the Brethren of Gold Range Lodge  No, 26 K. of P.  On Wednesday evening March 20th  Hold Range Lodge No. 20 Knights of  Pythias was visited by Grand  Chancellor J. L. Urown of Kmnloops,  in the course of his inspection of all the  lodges in tho ptovince. /Ho was  accompanied by-Bro. A. M,- Graves,  also of Kamloops, who made;the tour  of tho south country with tjhe Grand  Chancellor % and thoy weie .very  enthusiastic regarding the kind-treatment which they have received during  their travels. After tho business of  tho lodge'a supper .was given in_ the  hall which was,,well attended.-alter  wliich speeches wero given by Grand  Chancellor Brown, Bro's, A.M. Graves,  .1. M. O'Brien and .1. MiCiiini. also  songs, etc., by Bro's. Van Home, Buck.  Burridge, Cross and Winsor. The  meeting broke up in the small boms  of the morning and the knights of  Revelstoke will always look back with  pleasure to the, visit of the Grand  Chancellor to their lodge. Tho rank ol  Esquire was conferied upon Page  McLeod during the evening.*,  The growth of the 01 der is some! hing  extraordinary. It was organized on  Feb. 19th, lSOland dnring.thatyeArS  lodges made their appearance known,  with 11 roster of 78,members. In 1863,  we find , a decrease, theie being only  1 lodge in existence with a tnembeiship  of 52, but in 1800 the" benefits of' the  order became better known and there  were 4 lodges with a membeiship oT  370 and the order has been steadily on  the increase, till on Dec. 31st 1809 there  weie 67*10 lodges with a total membership ot 492,500. There - is also an  endowment, bank connected wilh the  Knights of Pvthiasand the insurance  dues for $1000,2000, to'$3000.are very  small,,viz., from the age'of 21 to 30 the.  charge is 30 cts: to 80cts. per month'  for S1000 according .to age. i Anv.  information- relating to joining the  Knights of Pythias can he'.had from  the K. of R. and L.���������F.W. Mack in rot,  Revelstoke.  ���������  Now this plan, which this province  will sooner or later inevitably have to  adopt, it is at present almost an ailicle,  \yf lailh to pionounce uiisuited to the  conditions pievniling " in British  Columbia. And thereby-hangs the  tale which furnishes the key ��������� to the  whole matter. It will be noticed that  this opinion is one most tii mlv held by  the repiesentative.s nt the farming  districts down V*y the coast. Mr. Kidd,  member  fur  Richmond, for   instance  was very emphatic aliout it the other  day  in   the house.   But he failed to  explain-why a plan, which suited the  tanners  ol .Alberta and Manitoba so  admirably wns so totally unsuitable to  the conditions sun ound'ingthe fartneis  of Richmond or Delta.   The Ueuald  will   venture   to-'supply this, lack of  explanation on Mr. Kidd's part.   It is  because  the  farmers  of Alberta anil  Manitoba have   got" no  Kootenay-to  piy     their     school   bills for    them.  A tiout one half oE the yeaily revenue  of  tlie province'is  made   up  of the  Dominion subsid-y.the West Kootenay  returns and the  annual  deficit.   Not  onlv   is the  pioportion   of   revenue  fiom West Kootenav enoimously in  excess of that derived from .any .other  district hut the communities thiohgh-  out   the   district   of any size at all nre  unanimous   in  assuming tbe buidens  of incOi poratiot!, to which is now to be  added that o'f r**-'11*7 suppoi tin*.; the'r  own   schools.    No  wonder then  the  tenacity with which the farmers cling  to this modem Westminster confession  of faith.   No plan could, certainly   be.  more suitable tn their ideas than that  KootPtiay"should liist pay for her own  schools and then support theirs.    And  just so long as the  Weetminster   districts    are    over    tepiesented _ and  Koolenay is under lepresented.will the  Westminster  ide-is   prevail   and   the  government of the   day will   grasp  at  any make shift rather than adopt  the  straight   principle    of    m.ikinc     the  Westminslci farmers, along with   the  rest of the   people of the piovince. pay  for their own educational advantages  themselves.

YARN  A Story From-the -'Antipodes'��������� Fearful and Wonderful Adventures of  a South Sea Islander.  The Vancouver World says.  A gentleman, who recently arrived  from Australia, and is staying at a  leading Vancouver hotel.is responsible  for the following South Bca Island  story of Tlonl the. Tongaman.  Tionl was a Tongaman, who finding  himself stranded in Hobart, Tasmania, some years ago, took advantage of a chance which offered ot a  trip in a whaler hound for the far  south. As is usual ln outward bound  whalers, the deck was covered with  great casks ln which the oil would  bo stored later on, and it seems* that  Tionl, being fond of fresh air, got  into the habit of deserting the forecastle when it was 'his turn below,  nnd 'sleeping ln one of these "casks  out of harm's way. One day while  wrapped in slumber, the ehip's carpenter was orderod to head up all the  casks lying about the deck. He was  not aware that Tionl was asleep ln  one of these, and the Tongaman wis  too sound a sleeper, to be disturbed  by a European   ship   carpenter.

This would  be faat indeed. Did they desire to  learn farming they could,; be shown,  as a starter, the great beneflt conferred on man through the raising of  farinaceous grains. Without leaving  thc hotel they could study tho precious products manufactured from  barley, corn and rye, tmiB becoming  imbued with a sense of tho nobility  and dignity of agriculture as a pursuit.  *���������      ������      ���������  Tho class of settler who has- been  coming in the last year or two is  as a general thing well oS, but���������  especially if he be from across the  lino���������Is too shrewd to wreck his ship  on a bar.

Then, to his horror, as he had  begun to expect, he felt the cask slip  over the taffrail and drop Into the  rolling sea. Alone upon the broad  face of the Pacific ocean, three or four  weeks sail from land,' Imprisoned in  an oil cask, without food and .drink;  what could he do In such .a situation!  However, after a time he became  somewhat resigned to. his fate-and  took observations from a small bung-  hole which gave him. a little'' fresh  air when it came round to the top.  hut for the rest there was poor comfort. To allay tho pangs of hunger  whicii beset him, he scraped some of  the whaleoil from the" side of tha  cask and fed therefrom. He marked  the sides of the cask with his finger  nail and sat aside little squares of fat  which he reckoned to aso, each day  by way of holding out for a long  voyage.  After 30 days of this ho began to  get used to his strango position. He  had a large penknife, with which h������  thought to cut himself out of thp  cask, but there were two formldabla  reasons why he could not do this. On?  was that while adrift ho was better  oil Inside than outside tho cask: and  the other was that tho penknife was  made in Germany, and, therefore,  though answering famously for bananas and sauerkraut, would be en-  tireley useless on wood.  One afternoon Tioni felt* the cask  grating against somo hard sub3tance.  and at last it became apparent to  his bewildered senses that he had  struck shore somewhere. Soon the  cask began to roll about on the sane;,  where after a time lt lay motionless.  The Tongan adventurer's cask was on  dry laud at last. Tho Sign tide had  left him high and dry on the beach,  and he could distinctly hear the rippling of thc sea growing fainter ana  fainter as it receded.  Now to free himself from his prison.  Ia  despair  he  tried  the penknife on  the  side of the  cask,  but    the blade  bent and he gave -up the task.  Tionl  dreaded the idea of the returning tide  as  it  might carry hici  back    to sea  again. At last he was startled bv the  lowing  or  a   cow.      He  listened   anxiously, and from the bung-hole espied  a lot of cattle winding their way in  his direction.     A.few of the foremost  came   to  a  standstill  several     yards  from  him  and    critical!*.-    0ved     tin*  strange   object.

He has had his  uses, as many in Calgary, well off  today can .testify. . Theso young  gentlemen are deported usually for  some small lapse from grace which in  the North West would not afford  gossip for ten minutes. The.unpardonable sin of preferring a" pretty  barmaid's society, to that of a bespectacled aunt, coupled with a tendency  to staying out all night, has been tho  direct means of enrlchng our colo-'  nies with men. and money.' They are  sent out to be away from'fast company, and it Is indeed a refreshing  sight to .watch them making a new  start in life amid the ennobling surroundings of the countless drunker-  ies which, for single men, form the  centre of social life in North West  villages.  ��������������� ��������� ���������  Tlie day comes, a few months after  arrival, when the teller at the bank  looks grimly through the little window and tells the youth that his  funds are exhausted.- Whereupon the  youth concocts an ingenious letter  home and awaits developments.

He said that - he  travelled on a special cur and lived  in the same house with his superior.  In order to uphold the dignity of  the position he would need at least  fifty pounds, until he cot thoroughly  established. This letter brought jov  to the household. Out came thp  money with a letter full of congratulations, and . inquiries as to how  long it would be before the course of  promotion made him president of the  road.  ��������� ���������       ���������  Needless to say, the appointment  was only one tamping ties on t.hp  section, the special car was the handcar, and his superior's rpsidenco tho  section house.

Tho man who met this  horrible death by freezing to death  on tho trail, was found by C. Betch  and James McKay, who' had arrived  at Nome, from Teller.  This was tho first death of the  winter "on the trail, and from' the  description of the scene it must have  been due' tp ignorance on the part' of  the victim while temporarily demented, or he may have been, murdered,  and placed .'in the sleeping bag in  which he was found, bo that suspicion of the real cause of death might'  be  avoided.       ' ������������������..,���������������������������'    "    j.  When Betuh and McKay were passing along, the old trail .to Nome along  the Tissice.river, about 18 miles from  Teller, they- suddenly' came upon a  reindeer' sleepingbag with the bare feet  and, limbs of a-man protruding from  the opening at one end.' Upon investigation they found that'the bag contained tfie body of a man entirely  nude and -in a frozen state, although  they did not remove the unfortunate  man from the bag. which had turned  out to be his death shroud.  Beside the dead man was found a  pack strap, and his frozen clothing  with the name Goldsbur on tho coat.  Nothing more could be found to prove  his identity.  Thoy left thc unknown on the trail  as they found' him. and- meeting a  man on the trail told him of tho discovery and fo'rwarded a description  to .the proper authorities at Teller.   o   MRS.

He explained that under  thc present law the voters lists for  the Territories are supposed to be  completed and posted eight days prior  to an election and finally revised two  days before an election and the enumerators who prepared the lists-also  revised them. A case had occurred  where candidates desiring to, obtain  certificates for votes to poll their  votes ontside of their own subdivision could obtain them any time  within eight days, if they were political friends of the enumerators, but  otherwise they could get such* certi-  catcs.only within the last two days  and even then the enumerators would  some times make themselves conveniently scarce. He desired to have the  law clear on the point, and to prohibit thc issuing of blank certificates  a'nd to provide that there shall be a  settled place where the enumerators  may be found when wanted.  Mr. Richardson of Lisgar expressed  the opinion that the law 'should be  made to apply "also to Manitoba. In  his own case during the recent elections he had been unable to find the  returning officer for four days and  consequently could obtain no certificate at all.

The gradual failing  ot tho remarkable strength shown by  tbe patient became more noticeable  in the afternoon and a few moments  before thc end there was an apparent  breakdown on tho part of tho sufferer.  Tho relatives and friends who had  retired from tho sick room to the  library below were quickly summoned and reached the bedside of the  general before ho paesed away.  News of the death spread quickly  throughout the city and several of  the more intimate friends at once  hurried to the Harrison residence.  The. news was flashed from the bulletins of all the newspapers and thus  comunciated to the .people .on their  way" home in the evening. The announcement produced the greatest'sorrow.

A set of  these characteristically western pictures la now being framed and will  be on exhibition ln a day or two in  The Herald office.  Writing of "Who He la" -Mr. Innes  says.  "Bronco," Is used here In Its largest  sense. No strain of animals Is entitled to be called "Bronco" as a  class. When applied aa an adjective  it means "wild, sullen, morose;" any  horse may be a "bronco." However,  the word has grown- to mean "a  'range bred beast" to the average  Canadian, and as an average Canadian  myself, I have decided to call the flve  etchings. "The Education of a  Bronco," and this Is done, Spanish  dictionaries to the contrary notwithstanding. ,  ������������������Let us then to the conslder.'iiion of  tho subject ln detail.  Roped.

Whoop-Lai"-  A bronco, under full sail, has been  likened - unto an earthquake, windmill, pile driver, and "poisoned cat.  This is, however, a mistake. The  planet has not yet arriv.d **t tho  stage at .which it can proaii.-i anyone thing or combination of things,  which-/ could possibly be compared  unto him. - * Ke hits the ground hard  and.often and he roars 'like a bull.

It behooves a loyal paper like The  Breeze to say something about our  new King. Popular though he be.  King Edward can never attain in the  oyes of the world the unique authority and prestige which his revered  mother enjoyed through lfe. Among  monarchs past and present Victoria  will ever occupy a pinnacle by herself  akin to tbat upon which Shakspeare  in the world of literature stands triumphant and alone.  ��������� ���������      '���������  The Monarchical idea is often scoffed at, but, after all. it is the only  feasible form of government. Progress  in civilization, so far from furthering  the interests of Socialism, always  brings us back to the good old thrones.

Tradition would make  them do this. Virtues hitherto undiscovered would be unfolded to the  public gaze, and dilated upon with  pens dipped in honey. Adulation in  its most nauseating form would force  the taxpayers to believe, ln spite of  himself, that King Skeeslcks the First  was a paragon of all that is good,  noble and exemplary. Prime ministers and archbishops would kneel  beforo him, and the highest ladies in  the land ourtesy low. ���������  a ��������� <���������  Of course Skeesicks ���������would be liable  to spoil it all by giving an Imitation  of an Indian Ghost Dance at one of  his Wednesday'' afternoon drawing,  rooms", attired in his royal robes, with  the crown cocked rakishly on the side  of his thick head, and very drunk.
