It is suggested that McSwaiti is assist-
ed by William Blaketnore, whose vet«

is to well known Whether the us«

more or discreditable to McSwain wo
know not. But we do know that the
Tribune of the past two or three week«
fully emphasizes the oft-repeated at,'
sertion of The Economist that the immigration laws of Canada need to bo
revised at once. Tho children' of
the slums of Europe have become a -
menace to tho well being of the Do«
minion. Without nny conception of
what is decent they becoiuo u charge
on the community, eitlior as street
lneiidicanls or inhabitants of the in-
.tilutioni maintained at public expense
for restricting the activity of the vicious
and degenerate. If we had proper immigration laws, strictly enforced, it is
unlikely that McSwain would ever bar»
been pot in it ted to land. It is an ui.«
fortunate policy which permits the
scum of Europe to enter our country
and by the aid of our common schools
freely opened to them, to acquire sufficient oducatiein to collaborate with
Mr. Blakemore in the editorship of the
Tribune. A ejiobo in private life is
disgusting, but comparatively innocuous, as editoi, even of the Tribune,
he is a public nuisance.
Sidney S. Saunders, well and favor*

was accompanied by Sidney S. ÎSaun-

to blows. The Japanese flew at the

The old Duke of Cambridge received u magnificent funeral tho other day

'Thereafter the body of the "old Duke,"
as he was affectionately known to tl a
public, was taken to Ketisal Ureen
Cemetery and buried beside that of
his morganatic wife. Among the
principal mourner» went Admiral and
Colonel Kiwgeorge, the lnte Duke's
sons." The King of Kngluud would do
a poplar thing if he »hoa/ed his respect
for the marriage velntion us viewed
by all hit subjects by repudiating one«
and for ever that disgraceful German
thing known as a morganatic marriage.
An Knglish woman ought to tie good

worthy woman, and her sons uro re-
