WHAT THE RIEL REBELLION IS.
A Ilrlef Statement of thn ClrctiBUtaacea
Which 1'recIpUatrtl It.
The Toroato Mail was not disposed to
believe the tir.-t reports of the Carl eton
hprising, putting the blame on St Paul
newspapers, anxious to score a point
against the Northwest in the race for
the season's immigration. Uy th s time
it will know that the troubles have as
sumed a really serious aspect, and that
there Is little hope now that they will
be suppressed without loss of life. Our
Toronto contemporary proceeds to state
the grievances of the Saskatchewan set
tlers, putting them in the light not un
favorable to the men who are now in
open rebellion. It says:
Under the Manitoba act of 1870 each
half-breed born in that province before
July 1 of that year was granted two
hundred and forty r.cres of laud free, in
satisfaction of what may be termed the
half-breed title. Hut beyond the con
fines of Manitoba lay a few half-breed
settlements for the inhabitants of which
no provision was then ma.le, nor, in
deed, was any demand at the time.
St. Laurent, one of these, was estab
lished as long ago as lSG- and is a
fairly prosperous place. The first de
mand for consideration was preferred
by the colonists ten years ago, when
they asked to be placed on the same
footing as regards free homestea Is as
tne metis oi iAinnuooa. iuier on,
when the Dominion surveyors appeared
in the country a fresh grievance sprang
up. The half-breeds, as was the
s-cttlcd along the
rivers, each larm having a narrow
water frontage, and extending far back
in the form of a long parallelogram.
The surveyors were, of course, com
pelled to destroy this arrangement of
the holdings, and the people earnestly
protested against it. They alio
renewed their claim for grants of
two hundred and fori acres per
capita, and from that day to
this the agitation has been maintained,
Kiel's arrival from Montana last spring
giving it the semblance of a general and
united movement The Kill of Rights
adopted by the half-breeds at a public
meeting at St. Laurent's in September
demand (1) the sub-division into prov
inces of the Northwestern Territories;
(2) the half-breeds to receive the tame
grants and other .advantages as tlifi
Manitoba half-breed; (8) patents to
be issued at r nee to the colonists in
possession; (4) the sale of five hundred
thousand acres of Dominion lands the
proceeds to be applied to the establish
ment in the half-breeds setlUment of
schools, hospitals and such like institu
tions, and to the eqif pincnt of the poor
er half-breeds with sied grain and im
plements; (5) the reservation cf ono
hundred townships of swamp land for
d.stribution among the children of half
breeds during the next one hundred and
twenty years; (6) a grant of at least
one thousand dollars tor the maintain
ance of an institution to be conducted
by the nuns in each half-breed settle
ment; and (7) better provision for the
support of tho Indian. This last item
was inserted by Kiel in order to please
Poundmaker. a turbulent Indian chief,
whose band has since made common
cause with tho half-breeds. It w ill be
observed that the original claims haven
assumed fanciful proportion?, Kiel's
rule being to ?sk more than he is en
titled to. in order to better his chances
of getting his due The half-breeds will
be satisfied, however if they obta'n the
Jnitcnts for the farms which they have
een cultivating all these years, with
grants of two hundred and forty acres
for those among them who have not
taKcn up land. Monsigr.or Grand n,
the Roman 'Catholic B shop of that re
gion, supports the Bill of Rights to that
extent, and so do the vast majority of
the English-speaking settlers. H7m:i-
The economical habits of the Heathen
Chinee arc notorious, and they are well
illustrated by a correspondent who.

The 'Bell Farm" "must go." Thir
teen thousand acres of the Northwest,
in process of depletion by skim culture,
occupied by a shifting population of
one hundred and ninety unmarried
hired men, or truant husbands, is,
happily, antagonistic to the spirit of

time this abused land will be cut up, ac
cording to the Toronto Globe's figures,
"into about one hundred and thirty
separate holdings, each affording a
home for an average family of five per
sons.1' Such was the fate "of the Sulli
van estate in Illinois, broken after com
plete failure of the absorber, who ' bit
off more than he could chrw." Also of
the "bonanza agriculture" of the bank
rupt " wheat king" of California, who
spread out too thin. And already we
hear less of the "great Dakota farms"
than in greener days.
Moreover, the stars in their courses
fight against the, covetous Slsera sys
tem which robs the land by socoeseive
wheat. Hardly any soil is "inexhaust
ible;" even the lacustrine depths of the
Platte Valley must tire out in the long
run like a stout Welsh pony tiiat goes
a great way as have the rieh lands of
Ontario and Illinois, and even newer
Kansas already begins to realize that
the fat prairie would better be fed. It
is a fortunate fact that, as a rule, only
diversified agriculture is permanently
profitable, and obviously, as the UloCe
points out, this cm not be conducted
on a mammoth scale. The tendency,
as our public domain becomes occupied,
and population increases, must be to
ward smaller farms and Ijetter tillage,
as is the case in crowded Kurope, nota
bly in France, and as will be in Great
Hritaiu when more humane and right
eous land laws supersede the present
selfish, and therefore unwise, owner
shin of large entailed estates.
There is a view of this subject of im
mediate and general application which
agricultural teachers of late are im
pressing with line upon line. Some of
the more forehanded farmers Iiavo
learned by pleasant exp-riencc how
much better it is to concentrate manure
and tillage upon a comparatively smnll
surface than to weaken their etlorts by
trying to occupy more land than can bo
fertilized and cultivated with the " in
tens'ty" without which the best returns
with the least outlay are never secured.
This tritn "but increasingly important
tilth is prctcnted in varied ways with
an array of calculations and compari
sons which need not be repeated hero,
for the reason that it is i-elf-evident to
all who will fix th mind upon the mat
ter. It was one of Mr. Greeley's favor
ite points in farm talk and writing.
That thoughtful, unselfish and suggest
ive public instructor never wearied of
urging the growing of better crops from
fewer acres and the return to forest of
much of the hillsides whose clearing
was due to the short-sighted desire for
more arable land. .V. 1'. Tribune
Why Soma of Them Are, anil Always Will
There arc some farmers 'who are con
stantly threatening to quit farming and
go into some nwe lucrative hurines.
If they would carry these threats into
sxceution (which they seldom do), ag
riculture would not loss much and the
occupation in which they would engage
would not gain much, unless they very
materially changed their habits. How
ever, there must be some cause for
these people not being able to make
fanning pay. Let us .-ce where the
fault lies, whether with the people or
because of the poor advantages which
Mr. Jones is a neighbor of mine, is
one of those that is continually prating
that "nothing pays so poorasfarmin .
Some poet lias sung "There are no birds
in last year's ns , but go to the farm
and you will find the plow in last years
furrow. Yes. there it is. all rusty, and
there it will stay tint 1 spring, and then
it will have to be taken to town to be
polished, and a day's work lost in a
very busy season, and Jones will won
der why he is behind with his work.
His seeder, harrow, harvester and other
machinery stand unhoused anl unpro
tected alike from summer sun and win
ter snow. This machinery represents
hundreds of dol'ars of capital, and with
care would hist twice as long as it will

yards and you will see a few hogs and
two or three cows standing huddled to
gether in one corner of the yard, wiih
nothing to protect them from the
chilling blast. And, yet he won
ders why Irs stock does not get
fat. Ak him why he docs not bu Id
sheds, and he will tell 3011 he can not
ay tho high price that is asked for
umber. Yet he has burned enough
straw to make a shed for herds of cat
tle and hogs. He does not subscribe
for any agricultural paper because he
thinks the money thus expended is of
no us?, although a short time since he
was cheated out. of eighty dollars by a
swindle which was fully shown ujp in
the agricultural papers. To Jones and
all that say the farm don't pay, I would
say it is because it don't owe you any
thing. Farming, when conducted right.
pays better for thy amount of capital
invested than any other occupation.
Tlie soil is very prompt in paying o:f all
just obligations, and throwing in a good
sum for interest u,.'.side?. llut it is very
unwilling to yield up its treasure to
those who have no clam upon it. To be
sure a farmer has his losses, but show

commandment I give unto you. that ye

IjOVc for men hke Christ' love for us
includes and guarantees that care and
sympathy for them which bears their
burdens.' laul lecoguieii Chr:.st'.- ex
ample as the rule of Christian duly
when hu said: "Hear ye one another's
burdens and sofullill the kiw of Christ."
and "Wo thai are strong ought to bear
the infirmities of the weak, and not to
please our.-elves. Let every ono of us
please his neighbor for his good unto
edification. For even Christ pleased
not Himself; b it. a t is written Tho
reproaches of them that reproached
thee fell on Me." Advancement ot the
Redeemer's kingdom requires imitation
of His example in bearing the burdens
of inners. The Christian community
is not a select coterie that livos to ami
for itelt. ami recogniz.es no obligations
to the world that heth in wickedness
around it. It is to be a universal com
munity, to gather to itself and to Christ
all the people of all Nations under the
sun. ami it can only bu successful in
this work in proportion as it bears their
burdens. The church must invite the
poor, the maimed and the blind to iU
feasts; must go after them and compel
thctu to come in; must make common
cause with them, make their burdens its
them, and can only do this by sympa
thizing, that is. utl'cring. with" the bur
denciL We must weep with them th.it
wep, carry their sorrows ou our hearts
make their cau.se our own. This im
plies contact, association with them.
There is no CJospel work done at arm's
length. Christ laid His finger on those
He would heal. He was made in t'ie
likeness of men. ami if we are going to
do any of his uplifting work we too
have gut to incarnate ourselves down
into the condition of thoo we would
b.'ie- Unless we are willing to have
this fellowship with their sufferings, we
can neither .sympathize with them nor
bear taeir burdens, nor win them from
their sorrows ami sins to Chri-U
Preaching to men m trouble i not
enoiigK Almsgiving is not enough.
They want sympathy and love, ami
these an not be expressed in wunU or
conveyed in sceoud-hand charities.
Thee" usually cost the giver but little,
and troe burdened with s.n and want
know It. They may have no right to
ask. bnt thuy do ask. and Christ ak
thac you make real sninlics for them.
Thatalonc can con v nee them of our
hve and give joii the hold on tham nec
essary to win them to Christ. You can
do niiythinr with the man youdovo to
the joiut of self-iacritice.
Tuts Christlike love which sacr'flo
scU for ot jcr. bears th -ir burdens, de-
feeds the oppres-ed, is the great need
of society. It alone can bind m-m ti
