Ottawa, April  18.���A' delegation   representing the Dominion Trade and Labor  Congress waited on sir Wilfrid  Laurier  this morning  to  ask  for  various  legislative enactments designed  to  improve  the condition of labor  in  Canada.    The  delegation included G. W.  Dower,  T. H.  Fitzpatrick  and Charles  March  of Toronto,-Win. Keyes of Montreal, and A. R.  Macdonald 'of .Ottawa,.'and Avere introduced by CoAvan, M. P., and Penny, M. P.,  of Montreal. Rower, Avho is the secretary  of the congress, briefly explained what  the  deputation  desired.    He  first  mentioned   the   necessity of  excluding the  Chinese and  Japanese.      He  said  these  people AA'ere seriously injuring the Avhite  laboring people of British Columbia, and  saidj that   they   Avould   soon  cross   the  -mountains-and be a menace to the AA'hites  on-this side.    To effect exclusion he ad-  A'ocated a $500 poll tax.     Dower said the  union'label should be legalized, the Crow's  Nest Pass   investigation  evidence   published, and  a bureau  of labor  statistics  established.    Such a bureau exists in the  United   States,   and   at   stated  periods  statistics are published.    Dower said the  laboring people  of Canada also  desired  the introduction of the eight-hour day on  all goA'ernment Avorks, and the labelling  of prison-made goods; in order that buyers  should knoAV AAiiat they were purchasing;  With regard to the alien labor law, Dower  said there Avas a great deal Vto  object to  in its present form.    What laboring men  wanted Avas  a contract labor Liav  that  avouIcI be general in its scope. ��� The'.'pre's-'!  ent laAV only applied to the United States;  people could be brought from  England  and Scotland under  contract,  and  thus  unfairly    cuter    competition   Avith    the  Canadians.    He also advocated an amendment to the  copyright law,  to provide  that all books, from typesetting to binding, must be  made entirely  in  Canada.  DoAver concluded by asking for the enforcement of the -laAV respecting the in-,  spectiou of gear and tackle used in tlie  unloading of ships! as OAA'ing.to the'lack of  inspection many .lives were lost.  , Mr. Keys, iii*talking of the labelling of  prisoiirinade. goods,  said  there  Avas - no *  .complaint of prison Avork if no machinery  Avas used, and  convicts u made  to  Avork  only with their hands.  . Mi1. McDonald  said   that   all' departments should adopt an  eight-hour  day  and day labor.    He said the .department  had become popular in" Ottawa; through  their departments adopting-day labor.  Sir Wilfrid,-in replying to the deputation took,up the various questions seriatim. He seemed disposed to slightly  favor increasing the Chinese poll tax,  but objected to it being applied to the  Japanese, Avhom he said AVereprogressive  aud Avere allied to Great Britain. He  hoped the "senate Avould not again defeat  the act to legalize union labels, and said  the demand - for printing Ci'oav's Nest  Pass evidence was only moderate, lie  regretted that a bureau of statistics Avas  not iu operation, and said he would draw  the attention of parliament to the matter. He said that; dtly. labor-, adopted by  soine of the departmeiAs, Avas satisfac-  ^oryrand'iiitima^  would gradually be extended. With regard to alien labor, he pointed out the  many complications in connection With  it, aiid said the intOi'tiq'tiohal conference  Avas endeaA'oring to arrive at a uniform  ���law. He said, of course, such Ioav could  not apply to Great Britain: Sir Wilfrid  also pointed out the difficulties in coii->  neetion with the copyright requests, and  said the goyerfiih'e'ut was moving In the  direction "desired,, though not its far as.  asked for.

Just how   any-, person   can secure a  * license to sell liquor at .present, outside of  any of fche incorporated municipalities is  - a problem which is bothering, a number  who are desirous, of ���entering the hotel  '   business.    At'tlie  recent session of tlie  - ' legislature* a new act was passed, which  came into effect on the first of April.-. It  provided for .the constitution of license  districts and for tlie appointment" of  license commissioner who should pass upon  applications for. liquor  licenses.    So  , ��far the license districts have not been  proclaimed, nor have the  commissioners  , been appointed, so that although the  act, is in force it is impossible to secure a liquor license under ifc. Another  circumstance Avhieh- may tend to complicate the issuance of liquor licenses  throughout fche province is the fact that  tliere is no repealing clause in the now  act. Tlie province has therefore two  liquor   license   acts   but   the   necessary  would be changed. It was changed,  much to the satisfaction of the manager  of the bank and tho bank's solicitor. But  theiiewcouncil would not dothe biddingof  the bank's solicitor, for did they not turn  him down for city solicitor? And now  they have turned down the" bank manager by refusing to transfer the city account to his bank. The bank's manager  and its solicitor will probably bide their  time.

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  THE   GOVERNMENT'S  POSITION.  To'all intents and purposes tlie eight-  hour law is dead. The sentence of death  was passed upon it by the premier and  the minister of mines. The child, they  as ti government created, litis met death  at their own hands.  As the  premier and   his   minister  of  mines have seen fit to sit in judgment on  this act, so at the bar  of. public opinion  they must be arraigned for an abuse of  the  powers  vested in them, in   trifling  with the public.  It requires no argument  . to condemn, their own actions stand out  as  their accusers.    The act  avjis "-'either-  good or bad:: cOmiriieiidable or condemn-'  "able.    If good,- why was its   operation  suspended without at least a fair trial of  its merits? If bad, Avhy did it become law?  The minister of mines, under whose advice  no doubt  the premier has acted, is  the most culpable, and it is not the first  time the honorable gentleman litis shown  a Aracillating  disposition.    He  is.young,  and  if he  thus lacks in  his  youth the  .stamina  Avith which men in his position  should  be endowed,  Ave pity the constituency he represents, and pity still more  the  people  from  which better material  cannot be found for its ministers of state.  To reprimand and condemn the action  of a public man avIio has served the people  faithfully for so  many years n as has  the present premier,- is hard.    We would  Avillingly  believe that his present action  is an oversight-on his^parbieular department.      Securely sheltered    behind  the  premier's "chair,"methinks^ it'is not hard  to- discern   the  trembling' form  of* the  minister   of   mines .* who- implores   the  premier to assume some of the responsibility of the suspension of the laAV.    But  necessity as a prosecutor knoAvs no  respect to person or gray hairs.    An offence  litis  been committed* against the people,  against the members who voted for the  eight-hour    law   'amendment,    by   the  premier and  minister of mines in stifling  its operation at tho instigation of the few.  The  premier has said  the gOA-ernmont  proposes  to proceed  slowly and  to do  nothing  that  would  cause  friction   between the mine-OAvners  and "miners.    It  is a Arery commendable course under different circumstances; but AA*hy, pray, did  not the premier take'this view before the  passage of the act.     In Avitlidniwing the  amendment from  operation tit   the  re-  " quest of" the "liiiife-Owuers tl/ey-establ isli  iVprecident which ailgurs  ill for the institutions of   the .province;     A- public  office is a public* trust," aiid when that  Jbiiu&tJs4vbus"edM/h^  hiineiati^n denial id ^rcj-dress and: satisf'ac-  ,- tion. ,, Tq, condemn,, the entitle gdyerii-  *di(|St��^oS*'"6ii6��:'Slio^:feb��fiijgs' of "one Or two  of jts inehibers Avoiild notice just,; but  the supporters of that government, 'both  in the hoiise and throughout the province  A.t lkvg&�� owe a ditty to their constituents  arid themselves, owe tl duty to the dignity oPtiie. province, in" tleniAudiug either  a retraction of the dedision reiiOlfed On  the eight-hour law by the honorable gen-.  tleiilen, Or their resignation front their  ''positions us mjiiistei's of tlioero\vn.  IS. R Brkainer,  New DeOvei's, April i5th,;lS0O. ;  Says St. Patrick Was a Baptist.  In a paper oil "Scottish Baptists'.' read  by the Rev* D. Lamont i at-fa- Baptist  ministers' meeting held'ili Deliver, Colorado, recently, he stated that "St. Patrick  was born in the fbitrtli century at Dumbarton, one of the ten Roman British colonies in the kingdom of Strathclyde.  His father was a -in ember of the town  coitijcil at that place. His teachings  were of the" Baptist church, and because  baptism received aud conferred by St.  Patrick AVas immersion, is another proof  of his sect. No mention is made of him  by the Catholics until 170' years after his  death, and he never received a dispensation from the Catholic church at Rome."

At certain fixed dates, such  its  the end of each week  or the end  ol"  each   month,   the   details    of   payment  should be  examined, and  each item carried out and placed under its respective  head, such as meat, bread, fruit, etc.    By  this  means a comparison  can  be  easily  made betAveeu the  expenses of one Aveek  and those of another, and  excess or  unnecessary expenditure can be at once discovered and checked.    When the ready-  money systam is not adopted in the family, and bills are..sent in for*payment, a  separate  book should be kept, in  which  an  entry can  be made of every article  supplied for household use; and this book  should be compared with, the tradesmen's  accounts Avhen they are   presented for  payment,  so that   any   deerepancy between  the two may be ijoiiited out and  rectified. V  A Fair Eedistribution.  Toronto Globe.  In a speech delivered at Ottawa the  other night Mr. Bennett, M.P. for East  Simcoe, said: "If the Conservative members of the house of commons held the  same opinion on the redistribution bill :as  he did, they would be prepared to become summer residents of Ottawa for the  jiurpose of fighting to a finish this  iniquitous measure. JNTever "was there a  more abominable bill proposed. But  little else was, to be expected from the  gOA-ernment. The proposed measure  would be one so unfair that, if carried,  the Conservative party would not only  be practically wiped out of existence, but  the interests of the country would be  seriously imperilled."  It is by such criticism as this that the  opposition are utterly discrediting themselves in the country. The redistribution  bill has uot yet been laid before parliament, and Mr. Bennett can knoAV nothing  of its chtiracter. If the bill proves to be  of such a character as he recklessly forecasts, then he and his fellOAV-opposition-  ists will be quite justified in fighting it  all summer. The country is sick of gerrymandering, and of all such "unfair devices  to gag public ojmiion and crucify parliamentary oppositions. * The " country demands (1) that the.outrageous gerrymander of 1S82 shall be rectified, and (2) that  -the constituencies shall be redistributed  with, a scrupulous regard for fair play  and within the lines of the municipal  counties. A gerrymander Avould do the  Liberal government infinite .harm.* A  fair redistribution it is bound3 to make.  The* crowning injustice of 1882 it must  abolish.  The C.'P, R. and Donald.  Golden.Era, April 14th.. -  It is a, matter of regret that the Canadian Pacific could not see their way to  treat more liberally the people of Donald  Avho have suffered heaA-ily by the company's action iii removing the workshops.

But the  most wonderful thing is the superstition  attached to the pitcher. There is an indescribable influence surrounding it that  pre\*ents its touch. Hundreds of people  haA'e gone with the firm determination  of lifting the pitcher* but when they approach it a strange repugnance comes  oA'er them, and they hurriedly depart  Avithout dairying out the object of tlieir  A'isit. One night a bully in tlie neighborhood, Avhile under the influence of whisky, made a bet Avith some friends that he  would go and bring back the pitcher.  He -left to do so, but soon returned as  pale as a sheet and empty handed.  "Boys," he remarked, "no person alive  can lay hands on that pitcher, and 1  Avouldn't attempt it again for the Avhole  of Aiken county."    He refused to tell his  experience and said he Avould not talk  about it. Other parties have gone to see  it, but have met with the same repulsive  feelings.  Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth.  Every citizen in a free government is  or should be a leader. His opinion may  be of as much value as any other man's  opinion. If ho sees a wrong threatening  the rights of his fellows, it is his inherent duty to assail it with all his might.  He is responsible, to the extent of his  oavu voice and A'ote, for every abuse and  eA*il that exists. He is-a Avarrior in the  unending combat against intolerance and  ignorance, and if he falters, humanity  holds him responsible for a share of its  sorrow. Every drone avIio will uot fight  the good battle of freedom is a dead  Aveight for his brother to bear; he is a  ghoul avIio is found at midnight taking  trinkets from his fallen comrades.  w  B  fa  fa  m-f  All  kinds  in  stock  SASH  DOORS  MOLDINGS  You caq save money  by purchasing your  lumber froff) me  J.

The habit of keeping a strict account  of every farthing received and spent is  one of the most effectual checks to unnecessary outlay. If it is to be of any  service this account must be kept regu-  ly and precisely. The entries, however  trifling, should be made daily, and at the  end of the Aveek the sum total on either  side should be added up and ��� balanced,  care being taken to notice Avhether the  cash in hand  agrees with  the .statement  =peopl<rof ^o^ldlnirde^tlpir homes there  under representations which gave theiu  eyeijy reason to bfelieve that D���onald^vds  to, be a��perhnuient" railjyaty eSntre,��and it  is*very hard iipjbn, niauy��of tfie;��residents  that, ttfter they have" spent the best part  of their Jives there, they should be forced  to turn out aiid make new- honies for  themselves, While they tire Handicapped  by heavy losses", in buildings arid improve-  inbiits which hivvp. been rendered valuer  Joss.

About fiA-e miles from Aiken, South  Carolina, on the Charleston dirt road and  in sight of the raihvay, is a little place  that was first christened Polecat, but  afterward, changed to Montmorenci, the  French for that ordorous little animal.  Many years ago a young Avoman came  with her pitcher to draAV a bucket of  Avater from a Avell at Montmorenci and  set the vessel in the holloAved top of a  stone post that some of the railroad  men had moved there. While drawing  the AA-ater a flash of lightning came that  struck the chain to which the Avell  bucket AA'as attached, and the Avoman  Avtis killed in her tracks. Her remains  Avere removed, but the pitcher avjis left  just where the dead girl had set it. To  this day ..tlie pitcher remains in the same  place, and so far from being-removed, it  is   said   that   no   living   hand has ever  A large stock of first-class dry material on hand, also  a full line of sash, doors,'mouldings, turned work, etc.  FACTORY WORK A SPECIALTY.

Duulop of Montreal has arrived  in Nelson for the purpose of entering the  local branch of tlie Merchants' Bank of  Halifax as teller.  William Hunter of Silverton returned  home this morning after spending a  couple of days in Nelson as ambassador  of the Silverton celebration committee.  He is confident that his mission was accomplished and that the Nelson sports  Avill celebrate the 24th May at Silverton.  James Lawrence returned on Monday  evening from a four weeks'trip around  the cities on the Pacific coast. While in  California he made a study of base ball,  and in consequence the local ball tossers  will require to brush up their play.  Sam Keo was brought to Nelson last  evening by provincial constable Wilson'.  He was sentenced by George A. Bigelow*  and J. P. Hell, .justices of the peace, to  twenty days' imprisonment-at hard labor  for the theft of a quantity of cigars,  tobacco and cigarettes from J, Campbell  of Creston'.  F. J. Smith of the Moyie Leader came  in last night from the town tliat; has a  raihvay, but is without a station. He  reports the toAvn quiet at present, but  the outlook good. The railroad company  see that they have made a. mistake in  building their station at Moyelle, where  there is no business, and not likely to be  any, and will probably in the near future  move all their belongings at Moyelle to  Moyie.  A team attached, to the delivery wagon  of the Parsons Produce Company ran  away yesterday morning and scattered  about 300 dozen of eggs in the vicinity of  the Nelson Planing Mill.  John Cuinmings, a pioneer merchant' of  Nakusp and New Denver, is iu Nelson  making arrangements for the opening of  a general store at Atlin City, in the Atlin  Lake district. Hilliard J. Richardson,  Avho has had charge of Kirkpatrick &  Wilson's crockery department, Avill haAre  an interest in , the Atlin Lake venture,  and Avill leaA'e Avith Mr. Cuminings about  the end of the Aveek for Atlin City.  It Avas rumored on the streets yesterday that the office of chaiicellor of the  municipal exchequer was going begging.  Alderman Beer, it is said, is desirous of  shifting tlie responsibilities of tlie position upon some other member of the  finance committee, but as yet neither of  them have expressed any Avilliugness to  accept. Alderman Beer's reason i'or desiring, to be relieved is said to be that  liis business will take-him away from the  city "moreor less. =The other members,of,  the committee contemplate "remaining in  Nelson, but they feel unequal'to the task  of,framing a budget speech iu accordance  with the demands of the. public works  committee for $00,000 in addition* to the  $17,000 already set aside for public Avorks.  lEai-l^^ ��;?s ��� eufc  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.
