The use of Zam-Bujc, however, made this unnecessary. Mr. Lewis''daughter says:. "Father had a sore on liis face, which became very swollen and painful. We tried remedy after remedy, and he had medical attention from several doctors, but he got no better, an4 finally the doctor said the only hope of a cure was an operation. " Father would not, however, submit to an opera-' tiSa tJntil he had first tried Zam-Buk, as be liad -beard so much about it. He began applying it regularly.and soon felt some relief. lie persevered 'and gradiially the pain was ended, the inflammation was all drawn but, the swelling disappeared and his pocket. I landed in Montreal with an English shflling in my pocket, and I will bet $5,000. which can life given to charity if I win, that I caivfeuy the honorable'gentleman and all his family, loi'U, stock and l.'arrel." 1 got up make the observation that I thought that. auy man with a pair of hands and willing to use them would" be no detriment to any country; r,said: "Those men are the class of. men we lift want. We must have labor to build our railways and do our work. But," I .said, "what we do not this country are gentlemen, who eorao to Canada to live by their wlt.s; wc, can breed all of those we want at home." I have been in probably closer touch with the foieignerr ot Alberta than ! any other man in this house. I live in I ;i mining town, Lethbridge. Nearly all j our inlners. with the exception of u ' few Xova Scotians and English, are I foiolgnors. We have all kinds: Gali-! cianH, .Uoukobora,',. Hutheniuns, Huko-; winians, Italians, Gi'.oeks-men from almost every country in Europe. Hon. .Mr. Power: Not many Ger-1 mans. . ' Hon.-Mr. De Veber: Not many Cer-[vinans-^no. I was not their regular physician. Dr. Mcwburn and 1 had been tho only two physicians there; and as lie had been ill now and then, I .sometimes had all tho foreigners on ray hands and have therefore been tonlinually in their houses..' I am speaking allogether of tjio foreignerp ill Albeila; I know, nolhiug of those in Manitoba; and if the statements ot ' nu' honorable (friend (Hon. Mr. Brad-I bury) are true! Manitoba must have been very unfortunate (n the foreigners ' picked out to go there. These people came to Canada with little or no money. They takeupa quarter section of land. I have been in Alberta ever siuce 1882; tso I should have some experience In the country. The first thing the foreigners in Alberta do is to buildja cabin out of wat-ijos and mud. Wattles are tho lltlln trees that tliuy cut down." T\\nf mix the twigs icith mud and build them-,j selves what they call hour-es. If there] are children in the family the girls  go out to service. In the winter the man comes to-Lethbridge and works in the mines. He saves every ceiit that he makes to m^end it on the farm. If the girls make any money that money also goes on the farm! They buy a cc.v, then another cow. then a horse,-and'gradually work up until they become fairly comfortable. I have known them to go so far as to make bricks by hand to build houses for the whites, who were too lazy to do it themselves. Tho house tiiey. would build would not be very artistic,, but it woul(^ be comfortable and ' warm, y The consequence of the "industry of these people is" that they can go to almost and atore and get what credit 'they want for they pay their bills; whereas, I am sorry to aay-, a good many of the so-called whites In Alberta do not pay their bills. But the foreigners do not'ask tor m>ich credit; they come with their cash nnchlse. That Is one of tho reasons. Hon. .\lr. De Veber: The' honorable gentleman also tried to make out that none of those people would Join our Canadian foicc-.i. Now, that is not ho. In Lethbridge I have examined numbers of men of all those .different races, men wlio wished to join tho battalions that were raised In Lethbi'idge, and I passed them, but. they were turned down, ni accepted by the tiovornnient, simply because they had come from .foreign countries. Some of them were very indignant. There wore quite a large number of Bohomlansy who wished to join, and when they were turned down they came to me as mad as liorneta. TJiey said: "Whaf'j Me not fight against Germany? The Germans took our country from us and made us slaves, and �Wa want to fight to get our counfryuway from Uennanj'!'' ,i � '� Of coui'scr, 1 must admit that ther� AVE AIREA IVITHJA'^ Moscow, May IF..-The possibility ot a German-Japanese understanding regarding the Far East Is intimated. In thin connection, the Izvesta, published this morning extracts from German papers purporting to prove that this will eventually take place. Th^ VosslSche Zeitung ^ays: "Events are now ripening In the Far East which should give German politicians a clear lUnt. Japan and Germany are two woVld jjowors, tje-tween which there is not the least conflict of interests, because Germany has no military iriteresls in the Pacific. She wants only to satisfy her commercial interests In Easterm Asia aud for many years will not create competition for Japan, liut. rather furnish her usofiil sources of income. Therefore wo do not doubt for a minute that these two powers will, within a short time, undorsttind each other politically and cease pursuing each other because of the identity of their interests." . Tho Izvesta concludes from German utterances, that Germany is support-ing-^tho, Japanese expedition imSerbia indepenVlently of possibility 6f an understanding between them, and says: "It is interesting to know whether the allies will consider this circumstance, or whether they will further entertain hope for the creation of an anti-German front in the Far East with Japan's help." a'ro occasionally immigrants, such.sis AuHtrians, who .nro not In.lho sainS I do not class the Gailotans, Bukowlnians and RuthonianH as Aus-trlans.

I OUSE lAY S Little Chtmcc of Proroguing on Thursday--Some Debates Yet Ottawa, j'May 21.-Tln the house of commons this morning Mr. Biirnham asked' If llie governiuont has taken iiito coii:sideration the gi'eat desirability of having tho house adjourn instead of prorogue. Sir Robert liordon replied that ho did not say the (luestion had not been taken into consideration iit the pro- sent, and Sir Wilfrid I/aurler observed that as soon as business was concluded parliament should prorogue. Sir Wilfrid asked further if there wquld be an adjournment over Fri. day. May 24, as it was a statutory holiday. Sir Robert Borden: "If the house cannot prorogue before that date, 1 think wer slioulU sit." Sir Wilfrid Laurler remarked that the law should bo observed in tha house above all places. "We have sat before on statutory holidays," replied Sir Robert. "I think in the circumstances we might observe tho day better by attending to parliamentary dutiea than by ad' joutning from Thursday until Satur. day." .Mr. .N'lckle repeated Ills question ol yesterday and asked lt_^ it was the in. lentien of the minister of labor lu table the milling report before tha end of the session. Mr. Grothers replied that the report would be tabled as soon as coni' pluted. He expected to table it bo foro prorogation.
