[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]
: Whltehorse, Dec. 1.? The White
Pass stage line has announced a sched
ule for the departure <.f stages for
Dawson that will give a service at
which Done can complain. During the
nest 10 days a stage will leave every
lay except two. A stage will leave
Whltehorse on each of the following
1 iy?: December 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 12.
This new schedule has been made
necessary by the frequency of t-he de
partures from Dawson aud consequent
frequent arriva's at this place. Too
many of the stapes were congregating
at this end of the line, and the busi
ness at the other end is pressing, so
that it has been found necessary to get
more equipment down there to accom
modate those who desire to come out.

Caurtdians Want Tariff W ,11
John Charlton, a member of parlia
ment for North Norfolk, Ontario, in a
speech to the Illinois Manufacturers'
Association, delivered at Chicago, No
vember 10, after referring to the "dras
tic" American tariff, said:
"A substantial modification of the
present Canadian tariff conditions can
be secured by important tariff conces
sions on the part of the United States,
a.;d the quesMon of adopting reciprocal
fr?e trade in natural products is one
that will claim the attention of Ameri
cans, as upon this basis satisfactory
conditions for the present may be ob
tained. Formerly the American farm
er and lumberman opposed the policy,
of the free trade admission cf Canadian
natural products into the markets of
the United States, believing that the
effect would be to depress prices in the
home market. That this i >a >*(>re bug
bear may be seen when a careful com
parison of the relative volume of Amer
ican productions and Canadian exports
for consumption in the Unued States is
mifelo, and it will be found that the vol
ume of exported quantities is so small, 1
compared with the volume of domestic
production in the United States that it
would be absurd to expect that import^
from Canada for consumption in the
United States could do more than pro
duce an infinitesimal influence upon
"Free trade in natural products is be- J
yond question demanded by Canadian
tariff considerations. The sooi>er it is
arranged the better for the interests
of both contries. Now, if the Canadian
buys heavily, he asks the privilege of"
making proportionate sales in return.
The present state of trade relations is
absurd. The time is ripe for the dis
play of a liberal spirit on the part of .
the United States. If that country ha '
the wisdom to display this spirit to
wards its northern neighbor, the result
will be vastly more satisfactory than '
the continuance of present conditions. "

City Marshal J. J. Burns arrested
William Belton yesterday evening in
the Seattle saloon and turned him over
to the federal authorities, that a charge
of Insanity might he lodged against
him. Belton, some times called uJ_!lack
Bill" and "Monte,"' has been acting
queerly for some days. Monday Dr.
Brawand took him out to the Red
Cross hospital, but he took a walk be
fore breakfast and did not show up
around town until yesterday evening.
Belton is one of the best known men
around Skagway, and he came to this
country with a record made as a Ben
Holliday stage driver, during the days
when Indians and highwaymen were
about equally dangerous on the roads
across the plains. He was .also a scout
and a packer ia the service of the Unit
ed States army during some of the most
trying times in the history of the
northern portion of the Itockv moun
tain region. He was a scout at the
time of the Litt le Big Horn massacre,
but escaped that terrible affair.
