Special to The Journal.
Winnipeg. Man., April 14.According to
reliable reports received in Winnipeg, the
first contingent of the Barr colony, now
located in Battleford, are not finding as
many roses along the pathway to fortune
in the great northwest as they were led
to believe would blossom for them. Some
arc disheartened and are seriously think
ing of retracing their steps to Merry En g
The trouble seems to be that they were
promised too much, far more in fact than
the ordinary immigrant ever hopes for.
and when by reason of the failure of the
agents of Rev. Mr. Barr to carry out the
announced program they are worse off
th an the immigrants who are under the
direct care of the government's agents,
they are entitled to register a few objec
The department of immigration has
been informed that these colonists have
suffered much inconvenience in securing
supplies, shelter and transportation, and
the government agents have been in -
structed to look after them and give them
what assistance they can, independent of
the Rev. Mr. Barr, the man who is re -
sponsible for their present plight.
Immigration Commissioner J . Obed
Smith was seen yesterday and said that
the government, having been informed of
the situation, had decided to take the
matter in hand and see that as far as
possible the Barr colonists should receive
the same assistance as immigrants who
were relying altogether on the government
agents for guidance and assistance. Th e
Battleford Herald suggests that as the
fulfilment of Barr's promise to his people
has been apparently abandoned, it would
be wise on the part of the colonists to
take matters in their own hands while
there is yet time and before they have ex
pended their means.
The plan of the colony, as outlined in
Barr 's pamphlet issued to the settlers, was
all right, so far as colonies go, but in the
absence of the faintest attempt to carry
them out there could be nothing but dis
aster. The stores syndicate that was to
have supplied the necessaries of life has
fallen to pieces and the goods arc not
likely to get beyond Saskatoon, neither
has the sawmill that was to furnish them
with lumber been put up. I n fact, noth
ing has been done for the party save by
"Under the circumstances," the article
says, "we would advise the colonists to
withdraw from the colony and take up
land within reach of neighbors, civiliza
tion and supplies. To continue in a party
whe re everything is measured by the
amount of commission it will yield to the
managers is courting disaster. There is
any quantity of land between Saskatoon
and the site of the colony equal to it in
every respect, on which they may take
homesteads. Supplies are more easily se
cured, neighbors and needed assistance
are within easy reach, a chance of work
ing out is open to any who may need it,
and the great advanta ge afforded of ha v
ing before them an object lesson in work
ing as experience has shown to be best
fcuited to the country."
HOME, N. Y., FIRE
The Washington Theater Burns
Rome, N. Y., April i4.The Washington
theater here, owned by Wallace & Gil
more of Oswego, was destroyed by fire
early to-day. The loss is between $125,000
and $150,000, about half covered by insur
ance. The Arlington hotel, adojining, took
fire, twiee. but the flames were extin
guished without much dama ge being done.
The wall of the theater fell, injuring a
ecore of persons who had crowded within
the firo lines. The theater building also
contained a number of offices and two
clubrooms. Th e property was all de -

AN EUROPEAN TARIFF
A Proposition for a Zollverein to
Meet American Com-
Rome, April 14.Count vo n Schweriu
Loewitz, a leading member of the reich
tag and president of the German agricul
tural council, will present a proposition to
the agricultural congress for a European
agrieolo-commercial zollverein to meet
American competition. Th e count said
"My proposition does not exactly con
template a European zollverein, but mere
ly an understanding between the Euro
pean countries to put themselves in a po
sition to safeguard their agricultural in
terests through a combined system of pro
"My scheme is based on differences in
the natural conditions of production,
which will have to. be leveled by protec
tionist duties. These differences are con
siderably less between the European
states, especially the central states, than
between the European states and the
oversea countries. The unequal competi
tion of the non-European product is grow
ing daily owing to the diminution in ex
pense of transportation from the non -
European countries, especially America
and the British colonies. I understand
that the economic superiority, of large in -
dustrial territories tends toward economic
coalition, hence a coalition of the Euro
pean countries is absolutely necessary.
The efforts in this direction have failed
hitherto because no government wishes
to abandon its independence in this field
in favor of such a union, and it is also
difficult to agree on a common tariff.
"Protection is needed in varying pro
portions in the different countries and a
common tariff deman ds a common admin
istration. All this is difficult to estab
jish. Besides an economic coalition re
quires a certain political coalition, which
is far from likely. Hence, the idea of a
European customs union must be re
nounced, and instead it must be recom
mended that in concluding commercial
treaties among Europe an states a clause
be introduced whereby goods exported
from one country to another shall enjoy
special low duties, which will not be ap
plied to the sa me goods coming from non
European countries. This would prepare
a way to the future formation of a Euro
pean customs union."
THE P. 0. INVESTIGATION
Postmaster General Payne Gives Out
Washington. April 14.Postmaster Gen
eral Payne last evening gave out a state
me nt in which he announced that the in -
vestigation of the postoffice department
will be continued, and that the parties
found guilty of wrong-doing will be su m
marily dealt with. Th e statement is as
During the months of January and February
reports reached me 'which I deemed It for the
public lnteest to investigate, and to personally
gather such Information and facts as would
enable the postoffice department to undertake a
thoro investigation as to the truth or falsity of
these reports. I directed Fourth Assistant Post
master General Bristow to take the preparatory
steps to investigate, if necessary using for that
purpose postoffice inspectors and such other
methods as would thoroly ascertain the truth or
falsity of the charges or insinuations made, and
he was instructed to proceed promptly and with
vigor during my absence. Since my return this
morning I have not seen General Bristow, so
I am not advised of the progress made. The
investigation will continue, and if any wrong
is disclosed the parties guilty of such wrong
doing will be summarily dealt with. If the
system or method of doing business in the de
partment is faulty, the proper remedies will be
applied without fear or favor. I inaugurated
the investigation with the determination that
it should be exhaustive. It is proper for me
to add that I laid: before the president the in
formation which I had in my possession and that
he fully approved of the action proposed by me.
The whole administration of the post
office department is made subject to the
investigation under the postmaster gen
eral's direction, and every inquiry will be
made as thoro as the department 's most
expert inspectors can make it.
It is learned that it will be several weeks
before the postoffice inspectors will be
able to complete their work. When they
shall have finished, Fourth Assistant Post
mast er General Bristow will prepare a
comprehensive report which will neces
sarily explain why publicity was not given
to the matter before.
The report that the arrest of two ,hig.h
of the postoffice department is
expected momentarily is denied officially.
