Assooialcd Press  London,   April   1.3.���In   the  house   of  commons, the  speakers on   the  government side held that the taxpayers of the  future will benefit  by  the  expenditures  on the navy.    The strength of  the navy  during the past year was the main factor  in sa\*ing Great Britain from war.  In the  event of the estimates being adopted, the  expenditures to be met will be  $504,035,-  000.    On the basis of the  existing  taxation,    the    revenue    expected   Avill   be  $551,435,000.    There Avill  therefore be a  necessity for a neAV departure iu taxation.  There are. grawe objections to raising the  tobacco duties.    It avouIcI be  rimvise for  the sake of small  temporary achrautage  to    surrender   the   hope   of   Avliat may  ultimately     be     a      golden      har\rest.  Two   neAV   stamp  duties  are   proposed.  The first Avill be five shillings on the ��100  on foreign and colonial bonds, stocks and  shares, wliich are not now liable to duty.  The neAV tax Avill be payable on the* first  occasion the document is  negotiated  in  this country.'���' The second  duty  Avill  be  an ordinary mortgage duty of tAvo  shillings per ��100 on loans made  on  debenture stock capital created by corporations  or companies  under the statutes.   -The  companies capital duty avNT be increased  to five shilling per ��100, and the stamp  duty on letters of allottment Avill" be" increased from one penny to six pennies. It  is estimated the total increase from this  source      Avill      be       $2,200,000.        The  chancellor   of   the   exchequer proposed  fresh direct taxation,  saying there Avas  nothing in   the   condition  of the   Avine  trade or the treaties Avith foreign  countries to prevent the imposition of reasonable, duties.    He  proposed,-therefore,'to  increase tlie duty on wine not exceeding  thirty  proof  to  1  shilling 0 pence, and  between thirty-one and forty-one  proof  to 3 shillings, and  a tax   on   sparkling  Avines of 2 shillings 0 pence per gallon. It  is also proposed to impose a new duty on  still  wine  imported   in , bottles    to  the  amount of 5 shillings per gallon.    Tn.conclusion the  chancellor  of the  exchequer  said :   "Now, therefore, Ave are a.ble to' estimate a revenue of $555,785,000 to  meet  an expenditure "of. $554,035,000, leaving a"  surplus of over $1,150,000."       '���';,  Sir William Vernon Harcourt followed  the chancellor of the exchequer, who  strongly deprecates a suspensoon of  the jinking fund. Sir Charles Rdward  Howard Vincent, Conservative , and  industrial member d'or Central Sheffield, suggested that a tax on foreign'  manufacturers would have enabled the  chancellor of the exchequer to reduce the  income tax.  Sir Charles Wentworth Dilke, radical  member for the Forest of Dean division  of Gloucestershire, expressed a-fear that  the taxing of foreign Avines would encourage the foreign countries in protective retaliation.  The chancellor of the exchequer in  replying to these criticisms, said he did  not share sir Charles Dilke's apprehensions because the Avine growing countries  Avanted the raw materials they imported  fuom England arid as for the observations  of sir William "Vernon, Hafcourt^ they  JUDICIAL COMMISSION WANTED  FOR  YUKON   INVESTIGATION.

Monthkai,, April 13.���There is some  interest being taken, among the rival  shipping firms -over the contracts, for  carrying the mails to Great Britain during tho summer season.   Tho Beaver line,  THE MERCHANTS BANK WAS NOT  Discriminated Against.  The Miner yesterday morning says that  the manager of the Bank of Halifax  states he Avas discriminated against when  the city called for bids for the debentures  last year, insinuating that his bank's  tender Avas known before the time set for  the opening of the tenders.  Under date of June ISth, the then  mayor advertised for sealed tenders for  tlie purchase of city debentures of the  par value of $05,000, and that tenders  Avould be receiA'ed up till 12 o'clock noon  of July 18th. Three, tenders'-were received, as foUoAvs: The Bank of Montreal,  for the whole of the debenture issue, at  98�� cents on the dollar, net; the Merchants Bank of Halifax, for. $20,000 of  the debentures, at par, less a solicitor's  fee of not more than $150 for passing  on the validity of the bylaws authorizing  the issue of the debentures; and the  Bank of British Columbia for $5000 of  the debentures, at 99�� cents on the dollar,  net. As the Bank of Montreal's tender  was the only one that complied with the  terms of the advertisement asking for  .^tenders, the debentures were sold to that  bank. The mayor reported to the council, and the council approved what he  had done.  Notwithstanding any insinuations that  may bo made by either the manager-of  the Merchants Bunk of Halifax, or lay the  editor of the Miner, the tenders received  '.Avere, all opened at the same' tinie and  "place, that is, at noon on July 18th,. 1898.  at the city office. Even iu their eagerness  _to get new business, managers of .banks  should practice what they require of  their customers', tliat is, absolute straightforwardness.  It might liot - be" out of place,  in this connection, to state - that  the predecessors of the present council  transacted all business open and above-  board. The city clerk ancl the mayor did  not assume to be the whole council, nor  did theysAvrito letters asking for tenders  for anything until authorized to doso by  a resolution passed at an open session of  the council. All tenders Avere opened at  regular meetings of the council and wene  disposedrof by the council. There Avas  no assumption of authority by chairmen  of committees. The business of the city  was transacted at open sessions of the  council, and by the council as a whole.  Special to The Tribune.  Ottawa, April 13.--It is said that sir  Charles .Hibbert Tupper will resign his  seat for Pietou, N.S. at once, and go into  provincial politics iu British Columbia.  His object is said to be to endeavor to  get control of the .provincial legislature  there, and in this way manage to swing  the Pacific province around iu favor of  the Conservative party at Ottawa, at  the next general election. Ifc is considered probable that J. 11. Turner, who sits  for one of (he Victoria seats, will resign  and that sir Hibbert will run in his  place.    Victouia, April 13.���Interviewed tonight by a Trikunk representative Sir  Hibbert Tupper said the report was absolutely untrue that he would resign his  seat in the commons. It is knoAvn that  oA'ertures of this nature have been made  to him, with promises by those making  them of some Liberal as well as Conservative support, if Tupper' Avould undertake the task of ousting "Joe" Martin,  but he is evidently not impressed with  the idea that any .prestige is to be gained  by entering provincial politics at this  stage.  EVEEY  MEMBER  IN  ATTENDANCE  Must Vote.    SsO far as could   bo learned yesterday  there Avill bp no immediate action   taken,  with respect to mayor NeOlaud's  veto of  tho resolution of the city  council, ordering the transfer of tho corporation's bank  account  from   the  Bank  of Montreal to  the Merchants Bank of Halifax. As there  is aprosiiect of oSie or  two  members" of  the council: being away Avithin   the  noxfc  few days, it is likely that tlie matter Avill  not bo  tukeii   up  till   the  next  regular  meeting of tiro council.    When the question coines np again there will   probably  be no ghif-kSng of tlio   votO.    Parliament"-  ary practice, according to: Bourinot, (Inos  not admit Of any such thing.    According  to this authority, if a member who  has  heard the question put does not vote, and  the attention of the  presidfiiR  officer  is  directed to. the 'fact, the presiding  officer  is required' to call  upon  the  member to  vote and his name   will   be recorded  accordingly.    That  this  rule  Avas  at one  time invoked by sir  John   Macdonald, in  the commons, is evident from a foot note  in Bourinot, in   which   the  late   premier  cited a case whichi occurred in the British  house of commons, in 1881, in wliich several members who refused to-divide when  called upon to do so by tlie speaker were  suspended.     This   would    .seemingly  do  away with the contention that a. member  not voting should be   counted  either in  the  aflirmative. or   in   the   negative, although   the    practice   obtains    in   some  bodies.   White and Comstock Nominated.  Special to The Tribune.  BuoCKViu.K, April 13.���The nominations for the vacancy in the commons  were held today. W. IT.

- Played by Machinery.
The game of whisb has passed through
many transition periods in its day, but it
now seems on tlie eve of what may prove
the most important of all, the change
from tlie mecha.nical routine of system to
the freedom of art.   .
There are some people who believe that
watches made by machinery tire the best,
because when once we have a- first-class
pattern. Ave can' keep on duplicating it
forever. Avhile those made by hand are
each of them an experiment in itself.
There are persons who prefer a lithograph reproduction of a great painting
to au original canvas from the hand of a
less famous artist. There are tho»e who
think it better to copy bhe design of an
approved specimen of archiiecure
than to adopt the suggestions tit", an
original designer. On tlie same principle,
there are those who think that if the experts have decided upon a first-class sys-
- torn Avhieh covers all the essential points
of a game of whist, the safest course is to
follow (hat system1, playing hand after
hand according to the pattern before
them, just as a carver turns out egg
moulding by the yard.
Whist is not a science, however nearly
■it may approach one.     Neither can it bo
piayedrby, machinery, however accurate
,and Avell ■ tesied the   tools.    The game is
-l peculiarly an aH.'and it recftiiresnii artist
■ to get out of it ils.full possibilities.    The
curstrof the  modern' player- has been Jiis
attempts to   play .whist  liy.* machinery
and   to use   conventions,  as his   patterns
and   guides.    J5vrery  possible  twist  that
can be yivon   to thp cards litis been   used
for  -omc   purpose  or other.    The high-
card   leads  have   been 'varied   time and
-again to  show trump strength or   weakness,    the  low-card    leads   to  show   the

n'd suit, to indicate n
other i-ril suit led, pro--
the trump. If it.was
'was tlie suit wanted.
On the same principle, they tried calling
in a black suit to indicate a desire to
have the other black suit led if it was not
trumps. If it was trumps, they wanted
hearts led. At first they thought-this a
very fine thing, but after trying it one
way ami shifting it to another until all
the  possible combinations  of suits   that'

finds-it does not work so well if it is fully
oxphuned to the adversaries, so he d:o«s
not sa,y ai'iythihg about it unless they
fpiestiOn him closely. Tliat these private
Uuderst'tnilings between partners sire'
very yonuuyi} js evident, froni thy fact
that the.yare continua'liy coming to the
slti'face Hi lulexpected wtiys. One fve-
quoiitly hears a player say to Ills partner
as they tire 'leaving the table alitor a
hund, "I' sliowerl you an honor iu clubs,
why did you notgjve .me the .suit:-*-'" Tho
.pair against whom the hand is played
lo.ryicat each other and wonder Avhat now
'.^ystelh they havo beiiti up against.
■! Jn a, recent tournament in New England, a pair came up to a. table, at whieh
they were asked for some details of their
system. At first they denied having any
system in particular, but upon being
asked the direct question if they used tlie
rotary discard,, they said they did. The
order of the suits or its variations they
declined to give, upon which their adversaries very properly declined to play
against them. The rotaries then concluded to consult Avith the other members
of their team, and presently returned
•with tlie statement Unit as they did not
care to disclose their system they would
nofplay it on that occasion. Their adversaries very properly refused to play
against them at all, system or no system,
it being evident that had they not been
questioned they would have used their,
'private signals without saying a. word
about it.
Of what   use it re till these tilings after
ally    There are a pair in New .York who
thought that the trump  signal  was  too
•good   a  thing   to   waste  on   (railing   for
trumps,  because  they observed that  it
could be asked for had
"they abandoned tlie avIk
for nothing, and only an
of Avorry and annoyance.
It is certainly astonishing' that our
good players cannot see tlie extent to
which they degrade themselves by insisting uponcthe -necessity of conventional
signals, in) matter what the result, s<3
tar as the score is concerned, there is no
feast of reason 'anil flow of soul in such a.
game, and one cannot help rising from
the table with a bad taste in bis mouth
after six or seven courses of private signals. Avhicli are intended as a substitute
for brains.
Why do not our con volitional players
keep a, notebook and jot doAVii the number of tricks .they gain by the use of certain conventions, and in another put
doAvn down the number the"*,' lose by neglecting the solid principles of the game?
Such statistics, if given out by some of
our crack pjayers. would prove very interesting reading. Suppose Beverly
.Smith were to come out, with a balance
sheet which would si ioav that he had
gained seventy-three tricks audi st .sixty-two iu 10.000 games of compass whist
while using the don't-force-me lead and
discard, and had dropped OSoO tricks in
the same time by leading from long suits
headed by single honors? Would not the'
"margin o,f eleven tricks in favor of, the
dqn"l>force-me lie'convincing, no matter
what happened to the long suits?
.Just take your pet * convention and
keep ta'b on* it for a .month 'and have
another page foi: a record of the Lricks
you lose through your ignorance of the
common-sense- principles of the game.
Do you know the conditions ihat make
the lead of long trumps a loser tun! the
lead from shori, trumps a Avinner? Oo
