Curious Matrimonial Romanco of the
Eighteenth Contury.
Did every match based on worldlj
considerations turn out as charmingly
as the one told about in Lady Russell's
book, "The Rose Goddess," English
social history would be very pleasant
reading. According to Lady Russell,
Lady Sarah Cadogan was married to
the second Duke of Richmond in re
turn for the payment of her father's
gambling debts.
Lord March, as the duke then was.
was eighteen: the bride was thirteen.
Immediately after the wedding Lord
March went with bis tutor to the con
tinent to make the "grand tour," and
Lady Sarah went back to the nursery.
Three years elapsed. Lord March
returned from his travels with so un
interesting a recollection of his bride
that he was in no hurry to claim her.
On the first evening of bis return to
London he went to the opera.
There he soon noticed that all eyes
and lorgnettes were turned toward one
of the boxes, in which, surrounded.by
many admirers, sat a most beautiful
young girl. Turning to his neighbor
la the stalls. Lord March asked who
she was.
**You must be a stranger in London,"
the gentleman replied, "not to know
the reigning toast of the town, the
beautiful Lady March!"
Lord March lost no time in going to
the box and introducing himself to his
bride. Thereupon followed a belated
courtship and so happy a married life
that the devotion of the pair to each
other was proverbial.
Round Oak Furnaces

Being a powerful heater and built on honor, air
tight, the Round Oak way—it will save its extra
cost over a cheap furnace in a very short time
eventually paying for itself.
Of the proper size, correctly installed, it will last a
lifetime in perfect condition. Think of that saving
as compared to the construction that must be re
paired and overhauled every year. It is the heavi
est, best fitted, most durable, most economical furn
ace made—Except None. It is the only air tight
furnace made. It is the only one that will hold the
fire all night, all day, ju*t as you want it, any speed
desired, a feature worth dollars to every user. Will
never leak gas, smoke or dust. Will burn success
fully and economically hard or soft coal, lignite,
coke or wood.
If any one tells you three is something better than warm air
heating by Round Oak methods, we will gladly show
that they are mistaken.
It is poor economy to consider the furnace question on a

Special to The Tribune.
WINNIPEG, May 29.—Americans
coming into Canada where they ihave
been led to believe governmental con
ditions are so mudii superior to those
in the United States are, upon their
arrival in Winnipeg, now being giiven
an insight into the manner in which
•the Canadian government operates the
affairs of its state owned utitilitdes
wihiich does not, by any means, bear
out the claims of the superiority of
doe government of the great northern
neighbor nor of its ability to operate
a government monopoly of public ser
vice concerns with anything like the
results credited to it.
Scandal Unearthed
'Although, Uhie scandals now being
brought to light by a Royal1 Commis
sion has shaken Manitoba business
and politics to the foundation, practi
cally nothing of it has reached the
United States. iThe reason for this is
that local pride has succeeded in sup
pressing the condition from American
newspapers. On of the standard sub
jects of Canadian attack® on the
United States has been alleged cor
ruption in municipal state and gov
ernmenit matters, and .to lhave a worse
state of affairs than anything charged
against American public officials
brought to light at home was any
thing but agreeable matter to have
spread in Yankee newspapers. But
so far as this instance is concerned,
all theoretical objections to govern
ment ownership have by actual facts
been demonstrated to be sound.
Forced Out Americans
Pour years ago Manitoba went into
government ownership by installing a
line of grain elevators and practical
ly forcing all privately owned tele
phone exchanges in the province 'to
sell to a government system which
was being organized. The biggest of
these plants, the Winnipeg Company
was American owned and operated.
The provincial government took a
club, went after the Americans, and
threatened to parallel their lines if
rtlhey dM not sell. The Americans
sold, but having to deal with govern
ment agents handling other people's
•money instead of their own, they got
a million dollars or so more than any
level headed business mam would have
paid for the plant Then, having a
number of other exchanges through
out (the province, the state telephone
company started business with a flour
ish. From time to rime glowing .re
ports were made of *he success of
the system and all went well until
some months ago when the telephone
commission suddenly announced a
tremendous increase in rates.
Found Wholesale Graft
A Ihowl" went up. HaW the towns
to the province appointed commissions
to see why Uie increase was .neces
sary The tumult became so great
that Premier Roblin appointed a
Crown non^partisOajn commission to
investigate the whole question. It is
the many scandals brought out by this
Royal Commission which is giving
Americans tine chance to return it
Canadians the many gibes wMch this
country has for sa long thrown at the
great republic to the south when the
question of tihe conduct of .Municipal
ami State affairs were under discus
sion. Although owned by the govern
ment for less than four years, the dis
closures before the commission show
thie entire system to be permeated
with graft, incompetence and scandal.
(As soon as the announcement of an
investigation was made, one of the
telephone commissioners resigned.
One employee has been arrested on
a graft charge and obher arrests are
to follow. In every department was
found scandal. Tihe puchasng depart
ment admitted havimg bought at one
time, $500,000 worth of supplies whdeh
were not needed. The construction
department told of running lines one
day and taking .them down the follow
ing day. One Mae 17 miles long was
built in order that one customermight
be served. Materials were wasted
time was "killed." In the auditing
department were found raised vouch
ers which had been, signed in blank
and afterwards filled in as the holder
wished. The accounting department
accepted without question such sums
as were remitted for long distance
calls by branch ma/nia*ers. In all the tJhTchare.e
three years there liiaa been no gen
eral checking up of ithe system.
Alarming State of Affairs
The scandal reached the Provincial
Parliament and became the question
of the hour. Member McPibereon,
from the floor, charged that the people
had been grossly deceived. They
were led. he said to believe there
would be from 1911 operation),
plus of $300,000, Instead there was a
big deficit. T. H. Johnson, another
member, made the charge "the labors
of the commission (hove 'brought to
light an alarming state of affairs. A
remarkable story of unsatisfactory
finance and plundering by certain em
ployees, has been made public."
The comimiission has just finished its
work and tits official report ia daily
expected now and the genera) belief
is tftat, because of the failure and
scandals In connection with the past
operation of tihe system, (this .report
will suggest the retirement of the
government from the public owner
ship field. Burt, thanks to the crown
commission, American have now had
an opportunity of seeing for them
selves the maniaer in which the North
ern Government conducts its state
closures which may come to light
down in the States."

City Wat Rate Fixed.
A very interesting session cf tlie
city commissioners wais held Monday
might at which considerable business
was transacitied, chief of which, per
haps, was the consideration of a plan
for fixing of the city's waiter rate for
the summer am amendment to the
city ordinance was read for tlie first
time voted favorably upon, which pro
vides tihat an average of the amount
of water consumed by every water
user in the city for the months from
October to April, inclusive, be figured
and considered as an average of that
used during the summer months, all
of which be cftarged for at the regu
lar rate 'them from the year's totai
tihe average for .house use be sub
tracted and that in excess, used dur
ing the sumimer for garden, tree and
lawn watering, be charged for at the
rate of only 16 cents per thousanl
gallons, thereby encouraging the
proper care of trees, lawns and gar
dens. 'Speaking of the cost of water.
one citizen stated that in 1910 his
radi'slhegf. watered wj'ith dirty water,
cost 8 cents each, and his beets, wa
tered im the same manner, came to
$4.00 a peck, not figuring hlis time.
This, of course, was exaggerated, but
the commissioners believed lower
rate3 for audh purposes would not
come amiss. In 'addition to this, Tom
Rodman was appoir.t&l official pounds
master for the city. F. G. Tharpe,
recently made superintendent of tihe
water works, to assume duties June
1, was required to fur.nSsih bond, for
$3,0'0O to insure faithful performance
of his duties. W. H. Stutsman re
ported the findings of the committee,
L. H. Connolly and himself, appointed
to look nto the taxes on the syndicate
lots belonging to W. El. L. Dillloway,
and reported t'hat they would probab
ly amount to between one and two
thousand dollars, but that, in view
of the agreement made by the county
commissioners some time ago to
abate them in consideration, for the
use of the fair ground, recommend
that the city commissioners vote to
allow the county commiissioners to ac
cept $500 in full settlement, which
tihey did.
