Many of them had wives, and .were lew, work became scarce in the wint- er time, and tho little colony was Boon reduced to destitute 'circumstan- ces.

Ill-clad, with scant protection dgaihst ths cold and wind, and underfed, the poor Icelanders faced apparent death. Taylor made representations to the Government with a view to securing assistance in improving their lot, but Hon. Alex. M-ncKenzie was opposed to discrimination in favcr of any one class of immigrants. The Prime Min- ister, how'ever, was called away o'h im- portant business arid Lor-tl Dufferin wliose sympathy and corporation had been won, carried llirough a. scheme during Mackenzie's absence. Mr. Tay- lor was sent to Manitoba to select land for a new settlement, arid Lord Dufferin undertook to give nbt only the land, but to provide transporta- tion and to furnish the Icelanders with provisions fcf one year.

"Had it not been for rabbits we should have perished, but they were very plentiful and th'e half-breeds and miians that visited us continually, occasionally brought in other gariie. They would come and squat dowii In jur kitchen and would hot move im- ,il they had been given a good meal." "Oiie day after supplies had run short and we had doled out rations carefully', a couple of half-breeds came to the settlement anil reported that 17 Indians were lying dead at Drunk- en river, a few miles distant.
