The Chiel Comnu**.sioner said Ihe  coiiespondence was aheady down;  heme he: had nothing nuic to say.  Mi.

"Befme proceeding to, substantiate  my claim tint the Chief Commissioner  was well informed us lo the-cuirent  rate c>r wages in Ihe Revelstoke riding,  J would like to call your attention to-a  veiy. important resolution in this  -coiibiei-tion which passed this House  on the 3rd of August, 1900 and which  declared for the current wages of  each district on government roads.  This lesolution provided particularly  that, the curt ent rate of wages must he  paid on all govei nment works and  consequently lhe government and  especially the Chief Commissioner was  deiehcb in his duty in not enftr.ing  thin I emulation.  "I will now proceed, Mr. .Speaker, to  show you the information which h.is  heen "in the hands of the Chief  CcuniYiissioner some time in this1*  connection and lirst of all I propose to  t*i*ad to you the letter which I referred  to a few moment.*-: ago as having been  brought down and added to this return  this morning. ' This letter is very  explicit on the matter.  Mr. Taylor read a letter from the  road superintendent at- Trout Lake,  showing that it was dilllcult toget men  a t $2..***0 as iiitf was the current -wage,  lie added.  "1 also w*sh, Mr. Speaker, to call  your attention lo another teller I'roni  myself to the Chief Commissioner  dealing wilh this same subject."  This letter was then read. It was  written on .J uly lust, ancl insisted on the  $3 rate and tlie reasons forthe discrimination against Revelstoke beinggiven.  He proceeded:  "Now, sir, T wish to point out that  no inswer has yet been received by me  from the Chief "Commissioner in leply  to that letter, notwithstanding the fact  that the Chief Commissioner told us  the other da}- that his department was  most punctual in answering correspondence, and notwithstanding all the  evidence before theChief Commissioner  he still insists on imposing on the  working men of my riding engaged" in  public works there_ a rate of wages  which is'not the current rate of ,,vv-ages  in the country. .'    <��������� i-.-  . . ��������� -l j -i  "In conversation witli the Chief  Commissioner on more than oneoccas-  ion, as 1 pointed out-'tq-you, a few  minutes ago. I always took-particular  pains to advise that honorable. gentleman niosl positively as to the current j  rate of wages, and on one occasion took j  the matter up with-him in the presence  of the honorable member* for Slocan,  who will bear me out in this statement,  and I at last prevailed on the .Chief  Commissioner to adoptthecurreiit into  of wages, whicli he did for a short time  in July.when therate was again reduced  to* $2.50. "When -'I questioned ���������. tlie  honorable gentleman as to his reasons  .for so doing he advised ine, that,, this  "rate was to be. the unifornrrate foi*jthe  whole interior, but such ^was.nof'the  case, as his answer to my questions  shows, tor whi'e paying" the rate of  $2.50 to men in my riding he was  paying $2 75 and $3 per day for the  same work, in the Slocan riding, and 1  think the*honorable gentleman should  be subjected to the severest censure by  his colleagues, as'well as this House,  for his unfair discrimination and unjust  treatment of my riding in'this con  nection.  ....(S i v.-l^fr^f^.^,..!. 4,1-   ~^.J-*.^ O*-'* *    -11  Commissioner to advise'the government agents -in my _riding, that in  future the current rate of wages. must  be paid as the resolution I' referred to  a few minutes r.go provides."

GROGAN, Editor.  Kirif Edward's Court Held  King   Edwaid's  second   court   was  held   on   Slay   2nd   at    iluckingham  Palace.  London was robbed   o'   thc   pictui-  e*i<_ue street spectacle attending  this  function by tho   fact .that   thc   court  was   held   in   the   evening, but inside  the palace the scene was  much more  brilliant than formerly.     Tin* change  in the time of holding the court met  with   the   general   approval ot   those  who   attended    the   ceremony.     Tne  procession to the hall room formed at  half past 10.    Mrs. Joseph It.  Choate,  the     wife    of    the    United    States  embassador, was   presented   to   their  majesties**.    King Bdward has devised  new   rules   to  apply   to   the   future  courts.     Owing   to    the   number   of  people wlio had  to pass before their  majesties the courts have  been ,vory  long  affairs.     In   future   only    those  wlio are presented will pass before the  King   and   Queen   and  after the new  rules   become   effective    onlv   ladies  actually presented  to  their majesties  need   wear    trains.,    T/.uiies    simply  'attending" court  may  dispense with  this elaborate addition   to   their costumes.

Bernier litis  been endeavoring to induce the  government of Canata to donate  8100,000 for a Polar expedition under  his command. He is receiving a very  large amount of supportfrom members  of parliament and the government  seems disposed to favor his scheme.  The speech delivered by Mr. John  Charlton, on this subject is not surpassed by any of the romance of Jules  Verne. From listening to Mr.  Charlton,-one would gather that if  Captain Bernier discovers the North  Pole it will prove that Canada has  000,000 square miles of the frrrest wheat  01 (.cue nenencene results that would  flow from success.   The chief objector  o the project is Mr. XV. F. McCreary,  of Selkirk, who is of the opinion that  the North Pole is in cold storage and  will keep. *In the meantime he would  prefer to have the money expended in  bringing' to this country another  consignment of his special favorites",  the Doukhobors.  Despite the denials wliich have been  made by Mr. Sifton and the officials of  the ^Department of Immigration, it  seems clear that the number of undesirable immigrants who have been  entering Canada within the past tew  years has been veiy large. Attention  was first called to the matter by Mr.  Kobert' Watchorn, United States'  special immigration inspector at  Montreal. Mr. .Watchorn's particular  complaint was that many of these  immigrants eventually found their  way to the United States. This  afforded-SlieTAmericans a reasonable  grievance against Canada and their  conduct under this provocation has  heen more dignified than that which  they usually display. Mr."Watchorn's  answer to Mr. Sifton's denial is very  specific. It is contained in a letter  which he has written to Mr. Uriah  "Wilstjp, the member for Lennox."  The letter states, among other things,  that at the moment it was written  more than une hundred Greeks,  Syrians and Italians were at his oflice  necking permits to enter the United  States. Everyone of theses wns  i cfused passage to the United States  by lines Hailing to that country from  Kurope ancl the line thartarried them  to Canada refused to sell them, tickets'  until they had changed their destination from United States point*, to  point.*! in Canada. This is a very  specific statement and Mr. Sifton can  hardly be blamed for attempting to  ignore it, since he is unable to answer-  it. Fortunately the evil is on the  point of . being cured by legislation  which will be passed this session and  Canada %vill then take her plaee beside  the United States as refusing to be n  dumping ground for the scrapings of  humanity.  Thc Chinese immigration bill wa.s  considered in the Senate. A few  members protested against British  Columbia securing an increase of the  per capita tax, whereupon Mr.  Macdonald remarked that the other  provinces were welcome to take the  whole of the per capita tax if only  they would take the Chinese also.  Fishermen Drowned.  Two hundred and fifty fishermen are  reported to have been drowned in u  gale which has made havoc of the  herring fishing fleet on the west coast  of Japan. The Japanese cruiser Mu-  sashi was driven ashore, but her crew  were saved.  Oriental Hotel  Ably furnished with the  Choicest the Market  affords.  Business Lots, $100.
