Subscribe For the Bee THE OLD DEFENDER WINS FROM THE NEW Columbia Worsts Constitution in the Last Race of the Series INDEPENDENCE HAS VERY BAD LUCK Broke Her Topmast Early in the Race but Pluckily Remained in the Race Until the Finish. She Gained, Too. By Associated Press: Newport, R. I., July 12.—The Con stitution, Columbia and Independence engaged today in a race over a tri angular course to complete the series of contests. The wind early in the day was about 12 knots an hour and everything promised a fine sailing day. The start was in the following order: Columbia, 11:11:02, Independ ence 11:11:20, Constitution 11:12:00. The Independence broke her top mast in less than a minute after cross ing the line. The topmast broke off short at the head of the mast in a heavy puff. At 11:21 the Columbia was racing along very fast and had a lead of ovef a half mile over the Constitution. At 11:40 after heading into the wind to clear away the wreck of the topsail, the Independence again swung off and started after the other boats. NEW CANADIAN LAWS BY THE LAST PARLIAMENT No Sitting at Which More Real Work Has Been Done. While there was no measure of paramount importance passed at the session of parliament jjust closed, still there was probably no sitting since confederation at which more real work has been done in so short a period. Indeed, Canada has had such a sickening of long speeches and parliamentary bores, that no one who has any respect for his political fu ture dare run the risk of indulging in six and seven hour speeches, says the Ottawa correspondent of the Boston Transcript. Among the leading events of the session was the legislation giving the right to certain dominion railways in Manitoba, notably the MacKenzie and Mann system, to enter into an agree ment with the Manitoba government, so as to secure lower rates for the shipment of Manitoba wheat to the head of navigation; the granting of a bounty to the lead industry; the es tablishment of a branch of the royal mint in the dominion; the Pacific ca ble bill; and the amendments to the alien labor act. . The attitude taken by parliament in regard to the Mani toba bill was that it was a matter of provincial concern for which the do minion took no responsibility. Tne general view was that the bargain was a bad one, but the province had to foot the bill, and therefore ought to be left alone to do so, seeing the lig islature had voted by a large majori ty in favor of the bill. The granting of a bounty of $5 a ton on Canadian refined lead in Can aua was done at the request of a large delegation from British Columbia, which represented that if this was not done the industry would be wiped out and re-established on the United States side of the boundary line. The maximum to be payable in any one year is $100,000, and the bounty will be reduced each year by one dollar until it finally disappears. The alien labor act has been amend ed in several particulars. In place of an arbitrary penalty of $1,000 for vio lation of the act, the judge is given discretionary power to apply the fine according to the offense. The penalty must not be more than $1,000, or less than $50. It can be recovered with the consent of the attorney general of the province or of the judge of any court where the penalty is being sued for. If the prosecutor deems the su perior court procedure too slow, he may go before the police magistrate upon securing the consent of high court or county court judge.

At 1:30 the Independence is gain ing and not more than a mile astern. The Columbia apparently turned the second mark at 1:26:30. The Constitution at 1:26:40. The Indepen dencp was not far away, having gain ed through the long road in towards Sokonnet river. The Columbia ana Constitution are racing along fairly smothered in canvas. They will sail tne next leg of the ten miles in very fast time. The Independence was luffed into the wind five minutes and thirty seconds to get clear of the wreckage. The Columbia won; Constitution second; Independence third. Time of boats at the finish was: Columbia 2:09:33; Constitution, 2:10: 69; Independence 2:19:58. ing in from the country to which the law applies a relative, whereas for merly "a personal friend" diight ac company him. A person illegally im ported into Canada is to be sent back, not, as heretofore, at the ex pense of the person previously con tracting for his service, but at the expense of the person, partnership, company or corporation violating any of the provisions of the act. It is a violation for any person to assist or encourage the importation of any foreigner from a country to which the act applies, by promise of employ ment through advertisements pub lished in that country. Exception is made in the case of skilled workers brought in to start industries and set tlers brought in by government offi cers. The Pacific cable bill simply means that the cost to Canada has been in creased from $8,500,000, to $10,000, 000; and that, on acount of the action of New SouthWales in making con cessions to the Eastern Extension company, the Canadian bill will not become law until the governor gener al has issued his proclamation. Provision has also been made for the establishment of a branch of the royal mint at Ottawa. The building and equipment will cost over $300,000, and it will require $65,000 a year to keep it running. The mint will make all the gold, silver and copper coins required in Canada and will manufacture, in addition, British sov ereigns. There is likely to be an as say office either at Dawson or Van couver on the Pacific coast, so that Canadian goid may be taken to Cana da instead of the United States as at present. Some old time liberals view the large expenditures of the Laurier gov ernment with alarm. A little over $40,000,000 in 1896, it has grown to over $60,000,000 asked for in 1902. Much of this expenditure is no doubt due to the growth of the country, but some of it is not. As long as the revenue keeps growing there will be no seriouB political disturbances, but should it commence to go down sud denly the political barometer of the liberal party will go with it.
