Tho Rlnt of tho wlinlo situation is
this: The ipiestlon Is now being tuf
flclontly well agitated to start even
tho jlullnrd nuil tho liulirtcront one
who believes politics are "nnwsty" to

long enoiish to warrant the belief that
public opinion should be sufficiently
well clarified to secure wise action al

something of tho attachment ot the

Jess emigrants have their passage
paid by tho Russian Government,

Tho Government hns established
depots for the sale ot agricultural
implements of all kinds to the Immi

On December in. 1892, the Trans
Slberlnn Hallway commltteo was cre
iitcd to cuIouUo the land opened by
ii that road, and generally to pi emote
tho economic development of Slborln.
The commltteo began at once to pro
moto emigration from European Itus
ida to Siberia, nnd as n result ot their
fiideavorB, not merely did tho num-
liers of tho emigrants greatly In
crease, but their mortality rapidly
diminished. In 1894, of SC.00O emi
grants, 3,000 died on tho way; while
In 1899, of 220,000 emigrants, only
.TOO died on tho way. From 1801 to
1892, GDO.OOO Russian farmers en
, tered' Siberia, whllo from 1893 to

Consequently when some of tho

Montreal one of the general ac
cepted model cities, has llnnlly wak
ed up to tho fact that It has lost
millions of dollars In contract work
nnd official positions have been
bought and sold for jcars. Humors
of corrupt practices caused the pro

Consequently, thero wero not tho
