 UNPARLIAMENTARY    LANGUAGE  USED   BY   A   MINISTER.  For Calling Sir Charles a Mischievous Demagogue Sir Richard is Called Down  by Sir James.  Ottawa,   March   24.���The   bottom   has  fallen out of the debate in reply to the  address, there being no speech of importance yesterday.   Sir Richard Cartwright  spoke.    He culled sir Charles Tupper'a  mischievous demagogue, and the speaker  Edgar   called   him    to   order   and   compelled him to withdraw the  phrase.    Sir  Richard dealt principally with  the  work  of the joint high commission.   He denied  that it had  been a failure, although the  negotiations had been beset with special  difficulties. The chief stumbling block to a  successful treaty was the fact that it had  to  be  approved   by   two-thirds  of  the  - American senate, which  was not representative of the American people.   Referring to the cry that Canada ought to retaliate, the minister said, "Let us not act  in   the   temper    of    school   boys.     Let  ns first see the issue of these negotiations.  Then it will be time to decide what course  to pursue.   I will never be one to counsel  an unworthy surrender of the rights of  Canada, nor will I be a party to silly bluster or any attempt to terminate prematurely the negotiations with  the United  States."  Hod, N. Clarke Wallace gave a review  of the trade question, dealing specially  with the Liberal tariff, showing that instead of favoring Great Britain it really  favored the United Slates in many  articles. Mr. Wallace said he anticipated,  the failure of the Washington negotiations.  The debate was continued by Messrs.  Casey, Taylor, Lemieux and Mouk.  Colonel Prior has a striug of questions  on the order paper in reference to the  position of P. C. Wade in the Yukon.  He will also ask if the government intends to introduce anti-Chinese  legislation this session. Colonel Prior has  also given notice that lie will ask the  prime minister if the statement of Mr.  Maxwell is correct, that $2S,000 has been  placed hi the pockets of Liberals in Vancouver since he represented them.  'Mr. Macdonald of Victoria gave an able  contribution to the debate in the senate  yesterday.  The absence of senator John Sutherland  of Manitoba for two consecutive sessions,  thereby vacating his seat, was reported,  and the matter was referred to the privileges committee to declare the seat  /vacant., V;,....:-; :' *��� V  -;The address;h.as passed -the senate.- ��� -  ^���01-;,  ^  '?*a;\-K  V*C*\  FRIDAY XFTERFOON, MARCH 24,  1899.

Still Held  THE FRENCH SHORE QUESTION  Refugees Arrive From a Town  by the Filipinos.  Manila, March 24.���The enemy are extremely active in the vicinity of Malabon  in preparing defences, evidently anticipating an attack. They keep well under  cover. A small body, however, emerged  from the jungle on the extreme left yesterday and fired upon the Kansas troops  in the trenches, fatally wounding private  Cohen of company B and private Muser  of company F. The Oregon volunteers  and the 22nd regulars inarched to the  front yesterday. The 3rd and 17th regiments have disembarked from the transport Sherman. Geueral Otis's brigade  struck their tents this morning, and an  early move is probable.  Sixteen English refugees arrived here  yesterday on board the Saturnus from  Dagupan, the railroad, terminus. They  report that, the natives are generally  friendlyr aud the officers invariably courteous. ��� Mr. Higgins, manager of the railroad, and about a dozen unmarried men  in charge of various business interests  declined to take advantage of the opportunity to leave. Nothing has been heard  from the two American planters at Cal-  umpit since hostilities broke out. At Dagupan Filipino accounts were that a thousand Americans have been killed, the  fatalities being especially at Caloocan,  where the United States troops "rushed  Jike madmen against a storm of bullets."

"The French shore  question," he said, "is merely a stage property of the politicians, brought out into^  prominence, or run back into obscurity,  just .as it suits, their schemes and needs;  There is just enough substantial basis for  the French grievance to swear by, but  barely    enough   to   keep   it   from'   be-:  coming   extinct   altogether.       Were   it  not  for  the  periodical  efforts  of. local  politicians to galvanize it into renewed  life, the French fishery question  would  have died out long ago.   The total  value  of the cod fish caught on the French shore  last year did not exceed $35,000, and the  lobster fishery $70,000.   The whole fishery  in value did not pay the cost of fitting  out the French fishing fleet.. The French  public   money  has   been  expended   like  water in bolstering up this claim.     They  have spent equal to $00,000,000 of public  money during the last fifty years in vamping, up this  almost  defunct  enterprisej  and this enormous expenditure has been  coucealed from the French people.   From  $30 to $40 per man for codfish is the aver>  age earning per man on the French shore,  and were it not for the lobsters their fishr  ery would have been abandoned   years  ago.   At fifty years' purchase; the total  value  of  the  catch   would   not  exceed  $2,000,000, and the utmost profit on that  would not exceed 10 per cent, or $200,000."   ������ '���'��� ��� -���- m"--A       ��� ���;?;  A Disastrous Fire at Clexreland.

The captain adds,  however, that Mr. Graham, the recently  appointed provincial gold commissioner,  and Mr. Brownlee, the official surveyor  for Atlin, are proving fully equal to a  difficult occasion with the aid in each case  of a competent staff, as a result of which  order will gradually be evolved out.of  what before was little but chaos, due regard being paid to all thoroughly legitimate interests previously acquired.  Such testimony as the above���which we  have briefly summarized from an interview which was lately had with captain  Cadill in this city by the representative  of a strong Oppositionist journal, may be  taken as of special value in support of the  northern land and mining policies of the  Semlin administration, in that captain  Cadill's remarks are not only those of an  outside observer who has taken ho part in  British Columbia's political controversies,  but were actually elicted from him by a  journalistic interviewer who certainly  cannot be charged with bias in favor of  the provincial government.

They say that  only Aguinaldo's body guard remains at  Malalos, and that the rebel leaders are  apparently staking their fortunes on the  fight at Malabon. There it was expected  that the engagement would take place  yesterday. If defeated, the rebels intend  to disperse to the swamps and mountains. The rebels . were putting tneir  bolos in front, believing the bolomen's  charges would divert the bullets. The  bolos of the Filipinos greatly outnumber  the rifles.   The rebels are further said to  sion inquiry of three judges, Petit, Crepon  and Lepelletier, who in the early stages  of the proceedings decided unfavorably  Pn a Dreyfus question.

[Viincou vor Xows-A.il vorXism:, ilarch 2"-.il(l-1,  Some interesting and Valuable testimony in regard to the provincial ^Pver.n-  ment's policy cpncerninp; Atlin has just  been afforded by an intelligent English  Pbserver and investor in that district in  the person of captain Cadill of London,  England* who is, as it may be well to add,  unconnected with either of oiir British  GblUmbian political parties and therefore  speaks from an independent standpoint.  Captain Cadill, after stating that iu his  opinion the Atlin region is a good placer  gold country for a comparatively poor  man, correctly and significantly adds that  the provincial royalty of one per cent is a  "rational" levy, which does not err on the  wrong side as regards the hardworking miner. He also points  out from personal observation made  on the spot, that the anti-alien policy of the Placer Mines Act is amply justified by the previous condition of things at  Atlin,which equally justified theadoption  by the Semlin administration of a land  policy, directed especially against the  "grabbing" of crown lands in the new  gold field, alike to the detriment of the  province and the general public of Atlin.  Captain Cadill states that before the recent sending of strong provincial officials  to Atlin, attempts were there being made  ���largely by alien speculators���to record  fictitious or doubtful land and mining  claims, as a result of which things have  become "very, badly mixed." ; In fact  "the fictitious claims have but tp be seen  and counted," says captain Cadill, ,"to  realize the necessity for the recent legia-  Stock( Eagerly Sought For and.

Our Neighbors Are Prosperous.  A. McBdde, head of the hardware firm  of McBride & Co., Calgary and Rossland,  arrived in Nelson last night via Crow's  Nest Pass road.   This is his first visit to  Nelson,   and   although he   had heard   a  great deal about the town, he did not expect to see so large and prosperous a place,  lie reports busiuess good in Calgary, Owing   to   the   removal   of  the   Canadian  Pacific shops to that place.   The farmers  of Alberta, as a whole, are iu  a better  condition than  ever  before, and  the development of East and West  Kootenay  has made a home marketfor their surplus  products.   While it would not be of any  direct benefit to the people of Alberta,  public sentiment is strongly in favor of  the granting of the charter to the Kettle  River Valley railway, as the people of Alberta know what it is to be without railway competition.  The full court has sustained  Mr. justice  Irving's judgment in the Spencer vs. Harris Sandon  towusite litigation, and John  M. Harris is now iii undisputed possession  of all the surface ground of the London  mineral claim, which he had cut up into  town lots.   After hearing Mr. Cassidy on  behalf of Spencer, the court said it was  unnecessary to hear the attorney-general,  who appeared for Harris.  : One of the cases now before the privy  council in London is entitled the Union  Colliery Company et al. vs. Bryden.   The  respondent, who is a director of the Union  Colliery Company  of British   Columbia  (Limited),   brought an,action in the supreme court of British Columbia against  the company and other persons, the ap-  pellautsVih which he asked for a declara-.  tion that the appellants had no power, or  lawful right to employ Chiuamen  underground^ and for an injunction to restrain  the appellants from so employing them.  It was stated   that   the    action   was  a  friendly one,   it   being   brought for the  purpose  of  raising the question of thej  validity of the Coal Mines Regulation Act  of British Columbia,  which forbids the:  employment underground of Chinamen.  The appellants contended that that enactment prohibiting the employment of  Chinamen below ground in British Colum-:  bia was unconstitutional arid ultra vires  of the provincial legislature, as-being an  interference   with the  subject of aliens  'and with the natural civil rights of aliens  heyoridthe power of the local legislature, v  The action was heard  before Mr. justice  Drake,   who gave judgment for the re- :  spondent,   granting the declaration and  injunction and upholding the^validity of  the enactment.   The appellants appealed  from Mr. justice Drake's decision  to the  full court of British Columbia.   The full  court ordered the appeal to be dismissed   ���  with costs.   From the judgment of the  full court the appellants appealed to theV  judicial committee of the privy council, V  and the attorney-general for British Col-��  iimbia now ask tineirlordships for leaves  to intervene in the appeal!

Nelson the Headquarters.   .  The Standard Oil Company, which has  absorbed   the Imperial Oil Company of  Canada, has decided to erect a large "warehouse in the Canadian Pacific yard here  for the storage of its products.   The oil  received over the Canadian Pacific will  come in in barrels instead of oil tanks as  it comes over the Nelson & Fort Sheppard.  While there is a considerable saving in  freight charges by the transportation of  oil in tank cars, there is also a great waste  by leakage, and also more or less inconvenience in local handling.

.Skventh Year, No. 19
:- The Canadian Pacifii. has seen to it that
thevdelegate from Nelson who goes to Ot-
.. \tayraa ;to demand An appropriation for »
.JpuBlic building is all right on the Kettle
■( Siver ^tilley Railway question.   As the
■ delegate is:endorsed by the Liberal asso-
Vciatibrirand"the city council and the board
" pf "trade, the fact will be heralded all Over
Canada that Nelson is strongly bppOsed
to the Boundary Creek section of the
province getting what she has gots-^eomr
petitive railway facilities. But, then,
consistency arid fair play are not consid-
- ered when politicians and railway men
have axes to grind. But who would have
thought the board of trade would willingly step in and help do the grinding?
. The legal is the only business reported
as not'keepihg up to the average at Nelson. The country can stand a little further shrinkage in that line.
There are said to be two aspirants for
the position of sheriff of South Kootenay
—one a Grit, the other a Toryi Have
party lines been drawn so soon ?
Sir Charles Tupper spoke for over
four hours in making a speech in reply
to the address. It is no wonder the
rank* and file of the Conservatives want
to change leaders.
Alderman Charles Hillyer has been
appointed and gazetted a member of the
board of police commissioners of Nelson.
The third member has not yet been
named. The mayor wanted his friend

She Made the Rules.
The late empress Elizabeth of Austria
did many things which appalled the for?
malists by whom she was surrounded.
A_t the first state dinnei* after her marriage she horrified the court ladies by taking olf her gloves. One of them remonstrated because it was a deviation froh_
the rules, But the empress promptly -Settled thai objection by saying that the deviation should   henceforth   be the rule.

The court ladies had another blow when
the empress insisted on wearing a pair of
boots a month or more. The rules had required an empress to wear her shoes only
once. "Just think," feelingly exclaimed
an English girl, "of being always in a
state of breaking in a new pair of shoes !
No wonder the poor lady rebelled."

It is strange what inconveniences people  ��� will put up with'for years,  and even accept as inevitable,  scorning the idea of  others doing differently elsewhere. Going  the hardest way to work gets to be "the  custom of the.country," and those vvho do  things in any other manner excite only  amusement.   The peasant of France, who  wears wooden sabots to keep his feet dry,  could not be   persuaded   to   try rubber  boots or "arctics," even if they were to be  had for the same money.   In Belgium the  people are used to big, square, solid seats,  and would not know how to  take their  ease iu rocking-chairs.   ..In-England and  the Colonies the dumb-waiter is a luxury  ouly for grand houses,  and  unknown in  humble lodgings and tenements where it  would save the time, health, and temper  of. thousands of "people.-'...The".elevator.is  only seen in the new big houses and hotels  of Paris ; in  that city  where flats were  invented the poor inhabitants toil up six  or eight flights of   waxed and  slippery  stairs.   Iu Spain,  where the weather is  of ten bitterly cold, the only way of getting warmisto hoveroverapanfulof coals.  ::'��� '-���_; A friend, wrote from _bld.Madi._d: ,���"We  ��* .:*R9#pffi$ffe j!B��a$ cif ul ��to&_ ti��d^;.f ke^cl;  *gbtfpbJsSiles'd*ivfth 'chaTfcbal fii"in es t?_id��I_djfy  r��eVei**y����klha .^^^^  *   ifinls,   ,". b-In?, ** .%f,     ���',A,,_-.-[r       Vuucl ? a" *lF -   &'&    *n      u n'^ -V *���> ft (bTn-   "^K'n       n^.

TFis a most complicated  affair, and so clumsily and comfortably  b British that it deserves attention. First  a maid appears and jays on the floor an  embroidered blanket. Then from downstairs somewhere���for their is nocupboard  or place in the room to put Such a thing���  she brings a large, rpuud, flat tub, in  ���.hape something like a huge shallow* tin  plate, A sponge the size of a* cabbage  and a few towels are (irtistically displayed  upon tlie blanket. After several more  trips she brings hot Water in a beautiful  brass jug, with a nahie or the faiuily crest  engraved upon it. The whol<? Outfit is  troublegouie and inctmvenient, and cannot compare to aii Aliieriean bath-tub,  with hot and cold water and a showtir,  but it is British.  After the bath, when you are dressed,  you leave the maid to cope With the tub.  I always wondered how she emptied it,  but had not the Courage to ask. She  could not tilt it to one side Or the water  would splash over; she could not scoop it  out with a jug���the tub is too shallow ; it  is too heavy and ungainly a thing to lift  bodily ; and the only solution is that she  dips the water out with a soup-ladle into  a bucket, and so gives herself a few more  trips up and down the stairs.  Necessity is the mother of invention ;  but love of ease and luxury has goaded  people on to as many inventions as ever  necessity was responsible for. Americans  wanted morning baths, warm rooms, easy  chairs and comfortable lives, and to our  forbears, who had to do the work themselves or go without, we owe every labor-  saving contrivance of modern times. To  our grandfather, who turned out of bed  when the thermometer was below zero to  make the fire himself, we owe the steam-  heater; to the times when Wrestle-With-  The-Lord had to carry his own jug of hot  water-or go without a warm bath,  we owe the hot water pipes and stationary wash-stands ; to the old Dutch dames  who carried the dinner from the kitchen  with their .own fair hands, while Johann  struggled up from the cellar with an arm-  ,-Jt*iiI of wood, we owe our dumb-waiter.  The English, more aristocratic, have  never had to. do these things for tliem-  selves. Their ancestors took tea in bed,  and waited for the maid to lay out tlie  tub paraphernalia exactly as it is done  now; if they had been forced to wait upon  themselves, as our hardy forefathers did,  they would have things more conveniently  arranged in their little island today.  I had never seen the steam-heater till I  came to New York;  but  I studied  the  queer looking row of pipes that occupy  a corner of nearly every room in a New  York flat with the deepest interest.   Of  course it is decorated  in a _*tyle  to put  your teeth on edge, and gilded.   There is  a little wheel at one end to regulate the  heat.   In  the bitterest   winter weather,  when the thermometer is below zero, one  wakes in a pleasant temperature, and the  halls and bath-room are warm.   It has its  drawbacks.   It is insidious, and with the  windows down the air gets dry and  the  temper unaccountably irritable.     When  one begins to differ on every topic with  one's   nearest  and  dearest it is time to  turn   off   the   steam-heat  aud open   the  window.   The icy blast that is admitted  gives a fearful idea of what one's plight  would be without this aggravating thing.  The steam-heater in New York is not a  fashionable thing by any means.   Hot air  is in the best houses, which is let into the  room by means of an  unobtrusive little  grating, that can be shut off and on, and  admits of one having a big open fire for  looks and warm air for comfort.  But, alas I Withuall the care, trouble  aud expense needed by the New York  people to make themselves comfortable,  they never know when a blizzard may  not swoop down upon them. The water-  pipes freeze and burst, the steam heater  gets out of order, the gas is shut off at the  meter, and snow piles up ou the sidewalks  aud banks against the windows. The city  recently experienced >a blizzard of three  days' duration. At a friends house, when  we were all sitting cheerfully about the  blaziug fire after dinner, the lights suddenly went out, and if it had not beeu for  the candles, brought in from the dining  room, the house would have been in darkness. At another place the hostess wore  a strained smile that ill concealed her  : anxiety^.: She .cou.tidpi��_, toVtUsSafterward  "VthVt^sh^lh^ of  ;��,'theX\yat"e_*^ de-  MugiffgHhe-6ellar,"swl-i]e>��helcbn.pany en-  ;tuei;taingd.themusglve>;>y.ith "agreeable con-  ; v&i-s'a'Cfo-i'iti'tir^  ^vAjBemcanSj.jyho'havaproved themselves  *:sd,.ap��t;'in���^ fiud-  Vitfg.^c.QmiQKtable'.way*-out: or." the incon-  ��lyg.fife"ncesK^ 'helpless  ���; befdre.!} Iii3ay.y".fa;l.l=Spf :sjqq% -.There has  "ibeen no vyayyptAij.ventgd."^ the  street^- of 'their^blanket .pfj.wX'ire other  i^Aii"h:y'lib&'b1d^ne^hQd*.ot'u diggiiig it up  ."%it.h^,a^si.bvfe]jV4Jiiii:r(gF.ii't "intp. cai'ts, and  ;d\yi*i)uing���"41>4intb," the":"sea.;,.:^hen' you  realizp'the"siz|. qt;^e;>v��Y^brlsr,|;he width  ;o_i"th;e;s1;r^^ snovy-  d rifts,) it isah^  tl_,e,\voi.k eutaired-inlcle-iringiitailFawa^y;,.  a shovelful at a time."

Such men,  knowing their responsibilities, would resent further restrictions on their individualities. The other classes of directors���  those ignorant of business, and the scamps  would not be controlled any more efficiently by severer laws. The present  laws are strong enough to deal with  swindlers; the only trouble is that the  public prosecutor and the police are not  sharp enough.  As for the idea that members of a government should not be directors of companies, no fixed rule could possibly be  made. No man can assume the duties of  a member of tbe government and continue in active direction of a business,  and no one ever does so in England. But  they often keep such positions where the  duties are nominal or in the nature of  trusteeships, and many examples of such  can be quoted. Land, insurance and railway companies claim a number of members of the present government as direc-.  tors, and no reasonable person can possibly object to such a state of things.   It is,  The IVjanhattan  IS THE ONLY HOUSE IN* TOWN  0 WHERE YOU* OAN BUY  Pabst Blue fybbon Beer  25 CENTS PER BOTTLE      Vienna Restaurant  Baker street, between Josephine and  Hall streets, Nelson.  of course, tbe reverse of probable that  any prime minister would nominate tbe  director of a wildcat to a political position.  Taking the question in a broader sense,  the resolution that members of the government should not be directors of public  companies, does not go far enough. If it  is carried to its logical conclusion the result is absurdity. A man may resign his  directorship, but may still hold a very  large stake or controlling interest in a  public company. Or, go further, and say  that a man may part with all such shareholding when he assumes a government  position. The step from this to the professional politician is a very short one.  and nobody in England except the aspirant to such position will wish it ever to  be taken.   A Good Law.  Governor Gage of California, has attached his signature to the Morehouse bill, requiring all articles published in the newspapers aud periodicals of California referring to individuals to have the true name  of the   writer  affixed.   Telegraphic dispatches are, by special provision, exempt.  In brief the object of the Morehouse bill  is to compel the signing of all articles containing such reference to an individual as  would degrade him, subject him to ridicule or make birn an object of contempt,  irrespective ofthe truth or falsity of such  publication.   The   bill   will   not   become  operative for thirty days, and meantime  the publishers will arrange a concerted  plan of action.   It has already been decided to disregard the law when it shall  go into effect and to make a test case on  the plea that it is unconstitutional.

The profession of company director is  not greatly in repute at present in England, chiefly as a result of the Hooley  revelations. In November last the lord  chief justice advised the lord mayor to  have as little to do with promoters and  directors of public companies as possible,  arid he has since spoken several times in  favor of making the company laws more  stringent. The other day, also, a resolution was presented in parliament that no  member of the government should occupy  a position as director of a public company.  All this agitation savors of the unbalanced mind which tends to run to extremes. Half of the business of England  is transacted by joint stock companies,  and of these 95 per cent are conducted on  sound business principles. Because 5 per  cent are promoted aud controlled by  scamps it does not follow that we should  look with suspicion on a system which has  many obvious advantages. We do not  retrain from going out of doors because  people occasionally meet with accidents  in the streets.
