No Indian War* In Canada The great fact stands boldly forth that Canada has never fought the Indian, and she will not begin to do so now. N vcr has Canada liad at) Indian war; an Indian mas-acre is unknown in the annals of hr history, She is too poor to seek glory by slaughtering the natives born of her soil, and too proud to defame her character or stain her escutcheon. Contrast with this tho policy of the United States that is nearly always lighting its red men. In dian wars are very expensive matters to deal with. The small episode of last year, beginning with the Messiah craze and end ing with the tragedy at I'ine Ridge Agency, covering but a few weeks, cost tlio United States Government $2,000,000, besides the llvi s lost, and in addition unsettled the natives throughout the country. It is to the credit of the Canadian Indians that, although sorely tempted, the Messiah crane had no charms for them. There was in Canada, it is true. Kiel's first rebellion that cost Canada $7,000,000 and the lives of some ol her noblest citizens. But that was not an Indian rising. Nevertheless it t night both the white men and the red men a lesson. It taught Canada that it would lie cheaper to ration, all the Indian tribes than to have another rebel'ion, and it taught the Indian the prowess of the au thorities, and this was emphasized by the trips given tn the I ndiau chiefs to Ontario, where they beheld tokens of the wealth, power anil glory of the white man.—West minster lleview.

H. Pierson's term ol office 'in reality expired nearly a year ago, and that he has hold this office up to the pres ent time, although not in reality a membi r of the commission. The cotnmunicatii n ia not signed by anyone, and was submit ted by Thomas Phillips. The board of supervisors referred the communication back to the person tiling it j for signature. But that action by no means disposes of the knowledge thus given the board, but which wis already Known to some of its members. Dr. Pierson was elected to fill out the unexpired term for Bradford Morse, ac cording to the minutes of the board, and that term of otllce expired January 1, 1895. This being the case, if Collins re signs, as he is expected to do. and Mr. Museot s time exoires with the year, the commission is lef without a single mem ber, and the board of supervisors will have the opportunity of doing as they please with reference to a re-organization of tho commission. There is no question but that the mem bers of the board have for some time thought very favorably of the plan of a one-man commission. These are removed by the latest discovery, and there is every P'ospect of an animated contest. Mr. Musooti's petition is in evidence, and puts him forward in the contest. Dr. Pierson's friends say he will be a strong oompe.itor, and there is no end of dark horses. POOI F [SORED, Seven tiogs have been poisoned in this city since Saturday, five of them dying, and of these at least two of them were valuable, while the others were highly es teemed as pets.

St. Cork-tic's beauiiful cocker spaniel pup, an exceedingly valuable dog, one of W. H. Mee'spugs, H.T. Shirley's Mexican dog, Herbert Foster's water spaniel and v mastiff owned on First street. '■I have coneti'Uted myself a committee of one to horsewhip the person who killed my dog," said H. T. Shirley, and there wasn't any mistaking what was meant. Owners and dog fanciers are pretty well aroused, and if by any mischance the in dividual's identity should be disclosed, tar and feathers is the least that has been suggested. reO.NO.MY AT THE HOSPITAL In the repon of ihe county hospital for November are some figures which are a good recommendation for the financial management of the institution. According to the report the expenses of the county hospital for November was $080.20, there being 49 inmates. The expense of main ing the Riverside hospital for the same month, with only 23 inmates, was 1751.24. Thereeodas compared witb the corre sponding month of last year also mikes a good showing. In October, 1894. the ex pense per capita per iliem was 18 1-B cents: in October, 1895, this was reduced to 38 % cents. Iv November, 1894, the cost was 47' ; cents per capita per diem; in November, 1895, this was reduced to \i~)t cents. 1 1'KNED DOWN THE CLAIM. The board of supervisors was yesterday compelled to refuse another claim for re bate ou taxes, the justice of which is ad mitted, but which the law does not permit to be repaid. The petitioner was M. D. Hathaway, who appeared by bis attorney. F. K. Oster, and his claim was * 146.98. He bad been assessed for 39 acres ot land when he owned but 28, and his orange trees had been rated as 8 years old when they were but 4 years. District Attorney Daley ruled that the assessment of the 11 acres of land which were no; owned by Hathaway could be dropped from the assessment, and the improvement which that much acreage carried with it. But on ill" overvaluation of the orange orchard he held that it was a case for the board of equ tlizition. and when no action had beeu taken then the board of supervisors were powerless. The claim was therefore allowed for only $29.20. Hathaway will at once bring suit lor the full amount of his claim.
