This imposing statue, higher than the

which is the loftiest in the city of New
York higher, in fact, than any of the
co!o-5al statues of antiquity by its rare
artistic, proportions, a-? well as by it
stupendous dimensions, will add an

word should be said of its artistic merit.
The pose, stride and gesture, with its

drapery is both massive and tine, and

Laud act, which w.-s con after parsed
by the Dominion l'arliamcut- In the
fffst place there were 1.4l,lM) acres of
land set apart for the half-breed infants; '
subsequent grant.- were made of land '
and .-crip to the half-breed heads of
families. Afterward came an order in j
council dividing the 1,103,000 acres of j
land among the infants per cap.ta. and ;
granting 240 acres to each child. Com- ;
mis-iotiers were cnt alxut to take a j
census of the families, and children
were at a premium; each child was
worth 240 acres of good land to its .
parents, and tradition sas that children ,
were "lent irom one xainiiy to anom
er, those already counted by the com
missioners being sent abroad to be
couuted over again iu tho interest of
another family further on.
Children ten. eleven and twelve years
of age weie examined with the utmost
gravity, and the farce was again aud
again enacted by obtaining their con
sent to the sale of their lands. Strange
it w:ts that thtse young-tors never with
held their consent. Lands were taken
out of chancery and sold with Mich
rapid -ty that to keep up wit'i the times
printed aihdavits had to be strucs. oil in
ill or disabled, that he was ihM. into and
unabl-' to keep his children; for some
time after all etlectsof the Haie St Tatil
Hoods had entinlypasseil awai n;ury
from the Hoods remained an invanaule
clause in e erv athdavit that was
tended to "fetch" the Judge.
The custom t 11 preva Is very wido'y
among half-bree Is in Manitoba of
swearing interest out of court. Tiie
monev that remained in chancerv on
! the sale of infants' lands is not and has
not been allowed to lie and accumulate
interest. The half-breeds know t; at
inte est i.s accumulating. Some of them
are not remarkable for industry. While
there i.s the certainty of a few dollars
being paid out of court to them in a few
wveks or mouths they will live in utter
idleness and exist on almost nothii g
rather than work. When the interest i
! is due thev show great activity. Thev
' may be seen, hale, strong men. looking
! for their lawvers to make them draft
atlidavits for them, telling "la Juge" at
the "palais de justice" that they are. all
sick unto dying, that they can't support
their familiesthat they are destitute.
From this state of affairs it is evident
that the granting of lands to the French
half-l-rci ds of Manitoba has not secured
for them the great Iienetit that Kiel ex
pected. On the contrary, the little
money that it has placed in their hands
has made many of them idle, shiftless
and inactive. 'Detroit J'ost.
