Ottawa, April 17.—Hon. Mr. Fielding,
minister of finance, was the first speaker
in the Yukon debate today.    He took the
attitude that  the  administration ofthe
Yukon should be judged in  the light of
the events as', they occurred, and not in
the light that the  members have today.
In such light he considered that everything possible had been done by minister
Sifton.    Proceeding, he scored opposition
members for the charges Avhieh had been
made'against major-Walsh, and said that
only sir Charles Tupper aud his son had
'dared to make these charges.    While admitting that it Avas uot right to refuse to
take the private lives of public men into
consideration, he pointed out Iioav delicate such it course Avas, and .the necessity of di'iiAving a line at the proper .time
and place.    He intimated that if a searcli-
Jight Avas cast upon the. private lives of '
all the consei'A-iitives appointed "goArern-
ors, judges, and oflicials great and small,
taking  in the conservative -.privy council board itself, the telegraph Avires from

Pauls, April 17.— The Figaro con tin ties
its publication of the testimony offered
before the court of cassation in the Drey-
ins revision _ proceedings, and gives
.another installment of Colonel Picquart's
evidence. Colonel Picqtlarfc in his testimony denied that he had' expended
100,000 francs in his inquiries concerning
commandant Esterjia/.y. On tho'contrary
he said his expenses under this.head were
very small. When the Eclair in
September, 1890, published an article
first mentioning that secret documents
had been communicated to the court
martial, Picquarfc supposed it A\ras a
man'oeuAfc on the part of the Dreyfus
family to get the trial annulled, and. he
endeavored to ascertain the author ofthe Eclair's article.
Prom the time Avhen he mentions this
regarding Esterha/.y to general Gonse,
Picvtiarfc felt he believed a .disguised hostility on the part of Gonse towards himself. He referred, in this connection, to
the ignoring by generals-Gonse, Billot

On another occasion general Billot lowing told Picquart the contents of a document signed by Maximilian, Avhieh he

Dreyfus, colonel Picquart expressed
doubts of its genuineness to general
Gonse, the latter replied: '"When a minister tells me anything 1 always belieAre

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  AN  INDEPENDENT MEMBER'S  VIEWS.  The following is tlio full text of the  speech'made by .1. Ross Robertson, member for East'Toronto, on the Yukon question. It contains more good common'  sense than the speeches on the same  question made by both sir Charles Hibbert Tupper aiid minister of the interior  -Sifton: .  So far as.I am concerned, this debate  "might die a natural death if I did not  feel it to be a duty to express my appreciation of the great service wliich sir 0.  II. Tupper rendered to this country by  his attack on official wrongdoing in the  Yukon. (Cheers.) It was' not my good  fortune to hear the reply of Mr. Sifton,  but J havo read his speech, and I cannot  but.think that he failed utterly to vindicate his own wisdom or the honesty of  the oflicials chosen by him. (Opposition  cheers.) In fact, the speech of tlie minister places me very much in the position  of the judge who was listening to tlie  lawyers who were trying to prove, in a.  celebrated election case, that the respondent had no personal knowledge of the  bribery that had been used in his behalf.  The judge said: "You might as well  push a man into lake Ontario and tell me  that he was dry when you pulled him  out, as to tell me that this respondent, in  the midst of such a seething mass of corruption,- ,had - no knowledge of,' those  transactions." Thespeoch of the miiiis-  ter Of .the interior -leaves'.mein the posir  "tion of-'that'judge in regard to these  officials in'the Yukon.; .^Hear, hear.) ?���1  ciiiinotfoi'one moment believe that there  could .be "so much smoke "without, some  fire.. .(Cheers.) .     '     '  *. I 'may say that J am thoroughly in  sympathy with'some phases of the government's Yukon policy. IH believe in  the. principle of the.royalty, and also iu  the theory that the Yukon should pay  for the Yukon. (Government applause.)  For that reason I'opposed last session the  attempt that was' made to turn tho  Yukon over to iMackeu/.ic and JMann.  (Conservative cheers and laughter.) The  imposition of royalty on bhe gross output-  was a sound departure, but yet a departure, and the government should have  been careful in the choice of agents. The  minister of the interior was particularly  careful; he seems to havo treated the  whole'Yukon as aAvrecked ship, to which  he fastened all/the barnacles to be found  in "Manitoba.    (Loud cheers.)  X ain free to confess tliat at first I  thought the appointment Of major Walsh  as adiiiinistrator_was_a,good__one. Laclk.  ,mit now" that I was possibly mistaken,  and yet, I hope that major Walsh will be  able to disprove the charges that have  been made against him. It "Would be unjust to expect Mr, Sifton to make any ex-  aniiliation in his choice of men : his-greafc  mistake was in his settled policy of trying to bludgeon down every cQinpIitint  that caniet'rom the Yukon. (Hear, hear.)  1 do uot "agree: with sir 0. 11. Tupper in  condemning the "activity of the minister  of the interior in the pul'Sjrit of the Manitoba rascals who *wene charged with  stufjing ballot boxes. The activity of  Mr. Sifton towards the alleged rascality  of his enemies in Manitoba is in marked  contrast with his apathy towards the alleged rascality of his friends hir the  Yukon. (Cheers), The demand for  .���^eeifie . charges aiid the names of complainants should, in *my opinion, never  have come from the head of a department Avho is ou trial. The men who were  branded as cut-throats did not go to the  Yukon to administer public affairs; they  went there to look after gold, and this  government should not ask them to stop  looking for gold to prefer charges against  evildoers in the country's service at their  own risk and at their own expense.  (Hear, hear.) The minister of the interior  had not helped them very much by his  policy of holding a sort of civil service  examination ou every man who complained, of looking for proof of good  character from every complainant, when  lie should have been asking proof of good  conduct from every accused official. The  honorable the minister of the interior  had a chance to disassociate himself from  the acts of his, officials. He could have  said to.tlie country, "whatever is wrong,  is going to be made right," aucUny policy  is-that-no' guilty man shall: escape."..  (Hear hear.) This was Hot the policy of  the minister of the interior.    He had his  chance, but he failed to take it.  If, when the first intimation of wrongdoing in the"'Yukon   reached him, lie had  discouraged   rather   than  encouraged  it,  he   might have   relieved this   parliament  by   making an   investigation that would  have been thorough and searching.    The  way that   honorable gentlemen   opposite  have   received  the name  of Mr.  Wood-  worth  shows  the   sort  of justice   that  would be dealt out to  any of those men  that complain.    (Hear,  hear.)    The present  government,'through   the  mistaken  policy of" Mr. Sifton, is identified A\*ifch a  corruption that has robbed men of their  rights and of their money, and  with  a  terrorism that Avould   have robbed them  of their  character if they had  dared to  make   a    complaint.     (Hear,    hear.)    If  there  had been   any unfairness  done ..'to  the officials in the Yukon, tlie blame rests  entirely on. the shoulders of the minister  of the interior,  for it  Avas his  duty to  move at the first Avhisper of wrongdoing.  I agree  with the honorable  gentlemen  opposite Avho think  that it  is a fearful  thing that the innocent should be accused,  bub, sir,  it is just as  deplorable that the  guilty  should   be shielded.    (Cheers.)   I  do not think that any gentlemen on this  side of the house is open to the charge of  Avilfully accusing the  innocent, but J. am  sure  that  there  are  gentlemen   on  the  other side of the house  who are excusing  the guilty.    I  am'much mistaken if the  demand   of the country   for the  truth of  all   these proceedings  in the   Yukon can  be suppressed by the tactics of the minister  of  tlio   interior.     An   investigation  conducted  by the friends  of Mr. Sifton  under  the control  of the minister  may  suit his folloAvers��� ["admit that they are  not as scarce as  1 would like to see them  ���(laughter)���but there is a public opinion AS'hioh demands more than an inquiry  by  Mr.   "William  Ogilvie,  Avith   limited  powers.

News comes from the Hudson Ray  posts on the Ashcroft trail to the Stickino  riA-or and lake Teslin to the .effect that  Indians in tho employ of the Hudson's  Bay Company haA*e a clew which Avill  probably load to the recovery of the body  of sir Arthur Curtis, the young English  baronet, who is supposed to ha-ve suicided  becuase of the difficulties of the Ashcroft  trail. Tlie body is said to be in the possession of Indians 'who   have   car  buried' it, aiid expect to get a big ransom,  w'heh the present search instituted by  hisJihiirllsli relafciTO  The Hudson's Bay Indians hope to secure  the' body by force and get the offered re-  Avard for themselves. The stpi-y of- sir  Arbluir Curtis'scleath is a sad one." He  had been ranching at Gosham, as many  another wild young Englishman of blue  blood has done. He got the Klondike  fever and with a party of eight started  Over the Ashcroft trail. They had an  elaborate outfit aiid for i\ foAV hundred  .miles all went well. Their troubles began  before they reached Mud river. They  Grossed that stream on Jiiii0 Oth  last year. The next morning  sir Arthur' seemed moody. All of  the horses had been stampeded  during the niglit alid were noAvhere to be  found. He loaded Ins rCA-Qlver in the  tent, lit his pipe and Avalked into the  woods, after saying goodbye to Roger  Poeoclc, whose turn it Avas to guard camp.  Sir Arthur never returned. There were  several theories regarding his death. He  .might have fallen into one of the sluggish  branches of the Mud river and lost his  life. He might have been killed by Indians. Ho might, in a fit of despondency,  have taken his own Ifie. The latter theory is most generally belieA-ed. The Indians soon gave evidence that they Avere  holding the body for ransom aud AA'ere  offered $1,000 for it. 'They demanded  $5,000, and there was cA*ery prospect that  they would nob give up the body on the  ���payment of that amount.  Six-Day Races Illegal.  Governor Roosevelt of New York has  signed the bill prohibiting six-day bicycle  and other races. The proA'isions of the  bill are: In a bicycle race or other contest of skill, speed or endurance, wherein  one.or more.persons.shall be contestants,  it; shall be unlawful.- for; any contestant to  remain Viii ������such.- race."for a '"longer time  than   twelve  hours  during any twenty-  LUMBER  SHINGLES  deuce than the lavish use of fine tucks.  If you Avant to have your iioav spring  goAvn cling and hang in the most approved fashion, Avear a divided skirt of  soft taffeta or China silk. This is fully  trimmed with ruffles at the bottom, ami  is the only petticoat required by fashion.  Something altogether novel in combination is a white pique chemisette vest  in a foulard gown, Avhieh is trimmed on  the bodice with a fine batiste embroidery.  Floral boas are one of the novelties for  suinmer neckwear. They are made of.  rose leaves and leaves of gathered gau/.e.  The new artificial flowers are made of  velvet and gauze.  Boleros of renaissance lace are a feature in dress and are very effective over  the soft nun's veilings and crepe de  chine.

The chancellor of the exchequer of the  city is in a peck of trouble. The. mayor  vetoed a resolution that had not been  passed legally, although ifc had been declared passed by the mayor..
