No. 27
THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT.
is
A petition, of which tha following ii a copy,
bting extensively signed throughout the
interior of the colonj :
To the Right Hon. the Earl of Carnarvon,
Her Majesty's Secretary of State for the
colonies, etc.:
The memorial of the undersigned residents
of British Columbia humbly sheweth,
That your memorialists are strongly in favor
of Union with Vancouver Island.
That their wish has been expressed by
petition to Her Majesty's Government, through
his honor the officer administering the Government of British Columbia, (the Hon. Arthur
N. Birch) said petition being signed by four-
fifths of their most enterprisiug population,
viz.: merchants, miners, agriculturalists and
mechanics.
That the people of this celony have heard
with satisfaction that Her Majesty's Government has decided upon uniting the colonies
of British Columbia and Vancouver Island, in
aecordanee with the well understeod wishes
of the people of this colony.
That as Her Majesty's Government agrees
with us in carrying out this long looked for
determination, your memorialists would respectfully and earnestly submit the following:
1. That the capital of the united colonies
shoild be permanently fixed, by an act of
Parliament, at Lytton City, the site of whieh
city was wisely selected by a Commissioner
sent out by Her Majesty's Government, under
the direction of Sir E. B. Lytton, then Secretary of State for the colonies, whose name it
now bears.
2. That the fact of the capital being fixed
at New Westminster, although only for the
time being, has seriously affected the welfare
and advancement of the central and most
valuable portion of this colony, which otherwise would not have been the case had the
capital been fixed at Lytton, as first determined upon.
3. That in the fixing the basis of representation, doe regard should be had to both
colonies, each eolony to be represented according to population, regardless of what the
resources of either colony may be.
4. That the fiscal system for the united
colonies be fixed, which is essential te the
welfare and prosperity of both.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
MONSTER RESTAURANT IN PARIS.
Among the curious sights of Paris well
worth seeing is tke establishment of which
we have the following description by the Paris
correspondent of the Morning Star:
To those among your readers who are now
contemplating a sejour in this metropolis I
should recommend a visit to "La California,"
a monster restaurant near the Barriere du
Maine, and which is the rendezvous of hundreds of workmen and ruined young men of
various classes. No less than 18,000 persons
can be accommodated there. The Soliel
gives us some curious details as to this immense establishment. From four o'clock in
the morning the servants of La California are
at work. Sixteen eooks are in constant employment. The waiters have no other occupation than that of pouring out wine and supplying the customers with glass and plates,
and there are thirty-five of them hard at
work from morning till night. The proprietor
was originally a butcher, and usually reserved
for the use of this restaurant 500 calves per
month and 1,500 rabbits. Thirty butchers
scarcely sufficed to supply the amount of meat
now required by La Californie since he has
put himself at the head of the concern.
Precisely at the clock strikes seven M. Cadet,
the said proprietor, presides over the distribution of soup and meat to the poor of the
neighborhood. Between half-past seven aud
eight the customers begin to arrive. Nothing
can be more promiscuous than the crowd
which frequent La Californie. There may be
seen the poor and industrious workman, who
buys a piece of bread and a morsel of cheese,
which he eats as he goes to his work; the
noceur who has spent his night in dissipation
and eomes in to drink a glass of wine and
eat a crust, the gouapeur who has slept in the
open air, and the felon who adroitly contrives
to avoid even the Argus eyes of the waiters,
and steals a plate of meat and a piece of
bread deposited  for an instant on a table,
while its bearer answers a sudden callfrom an
impatient customer. Every customer of La
Californie is expected to go in person to the
kitchen and carry away to the eating-room the
dish he prefers, for which he pays on the
spot, being there supplied with a spoon and
iron fork. M. Cadet has been at the head of
this establishment since the 26th of May,
1850, and has purchased 800,000 glasses, 100,-
000 forks and 150,000 knives since that date
to the present hour. The dish in constant
demand from seven in the morning to eleven
at night is soups and beef, for which the customer pays six sous or three pence. Add to
this two sous of bread and three sous of wine,
and the poor workman will have had his meal
for 11 sous, that is 5|d. The daily bill of
fare of this monster restaurant shows a consumption of 2,000 (French) pounds weight of
meat. The prices are thus quoted: A plate
of meat, either beef or mutton, 2d.; ditto of
veal, 3d.; a half pint of wiie, 2d. Two casks
of wine are drunk per day and 800 pounds of
bread eaten.
Rbvolvirs Supkrsided.—An invention has
been promulgated which, it is said, will go
far to revolutionize the whole system of
modern firearms. The inventor, Mr. James
Gale, is blind, but he handles his models with
almost the same ease as if he had his sight.
The weapon may be described as a skeleten
firearm. The barrel, stock and hammer are
all in their places; but where the ordinary
revolver has its circular breech for the reception of cartridges, Mr. Gale's weapon con
tains a blank space for tho reception of an
horizontal slide enclosing the cartridges
These are entirely distinct from the weapon,
and may be carried in one pocket while the
pistol is in the other. The slides may be
made te contain any convenient number of
shots. Mr. Gale prefers them capable of
holding ten cartridges each. By passing the
slide into the aperture left for it in the skeleton, the weapon is at once completed, and
as fast as the trigger can be drawn the cartridges may be fired, the slide itself gradually
passing through as each cartridge is discharged. So soon as all have been fired,
another slide may be slipped in, and the firing
repeated as long as tkere is amunition to reload the slides left. One hundred shots a
minute may be thus fired. The principle is
applicable not only to pistols, but to rifles and
cannons.
A Jury 8hijbbi:\—A Banbury jury, in
England, on the 14th ef July were the means
of varying a well worn judicial formula. In
the only case that came before them, they
gave a verdict which the Reoorder seems to
have thought a very stupid one. So, instead
of the usual, " Gentlemen, the court discharges you, and the country thanks you for
your services," his honor said: " Gentlemen,
you are discharged, and I wish I could say
the country was indebted to you for your
services; but I think the reverse."

Who will the Public Support?
The man who charged $80
to 13oda Creek when he had
a Monopoly, or the man who
brought down fares to $40 ?
THE UNDERSIGNED has well appointed
Stages on the road to Soda Creek, which are
guaranteed to make faster time than any
other line. He has brought down fares to
$40, and the public ought to see that it is
their own interest to support and maintain
a cheap and efficient Opposition.
The statement put forth by a stage proprietor that he reduced the fare to enable
people to go to Canon Creek is only bunkum,
as it is well known that he did not reduce the
rates until they were first reduced by the
undersigned.
f^The line through to Cariboo will shortly

IN   BANKRUPTCY.
QUARTZ MINING AND LITIGATION.
WHEREAS, a petition for adjudication of
Bankruptcy, bearing date the 3d day of
j October, 1888, h\th been duly filed by Lorenzo
[Bonanati Rom*no\on British Columbia, merit is with regret we notico that litigation—jehant, and he havrug been declared a Bank
thnt bane of Cariboo—has already commenced j">pt, is hereby requiftd to surrender himself
to Edward  HowarrJ Silvers, Judge of the

clock
,  . , .     . . ;    ,. , to Edward  Howard Silvers, Judge of
in regard to quartz claims lately discovered ly  Qmatj Court/actin^in Bankruptcy,
on  Canon Creek.    Just as quartz—tbe hops tll0 3fj foj 0f November,  1866, at 11 o'cl
of the couutry—is bogianing to exeite attention, law ?uits step in and an attempt is thus
in tho foi 'noon precisely; and on the 3d day
of December,   1866,  at 11   o'clock in the
■ forenoon   precisely,   at   the  Court   House,
m&do to blight our fairest prospects.   Surely Ysd; tnd make a fttU d*8C0Terr ,nd disclosure
with the espcriense miners have had in this, of his estate and effects, when and where the
country, and the readiness manifested on all •*«<tftori »re to come prepared to prove their
debts,  and at the first sitting to choose as-
OCCMioni by unscrupulous parties to take advantage of any Caw in a title to wrest from
its proper owners valuable cleiraa, on which,
perhaps, thousands of dollars had been ox-
pended, the greatuat vigilance should be exercised to prevent an crror'occurring in thc
pre-emption of mining ground. It is true
that, at present, laws have not been specially
framed iu regard to quartz claims, but wo
think that litigaiion might be avoided by
those who take up claims, if they only took
ordinary care to ba7e their stakes properly
siqnoes, and at the last sitting the said Bank
rupt is required to finish his examination.
All persons indebted to the said Bankrupt,
or that have any ef his effects, are not to pay
or deliver the same but to Arthur T. Bushby,
Esq., at New Westminster, the official assignee
duly appointed.

to allow any obstacle to stand in the way of

BKITISH COLUMBIA TRIBUNE.
YALE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1866.
Ax   Injuitici. — Wc   have   been   made
acquainted with a case   of great injustice
done to a hotel keoper on the wagon road,
by the Government.   Most of our readers in
this colony are aware that in 1860 there was
a groat deal of mining carried on aleng the
bars of the Fraser river, and that there were
several points which attracted, temporarily,
large populations.    One of those was Boston
Bar,  and  no  sooner had miners assembled
around that locality than the Government sst
apart a  reservation  for  a  town site.     An
enterprising settler, Mr. Alexander Coutlee,
took, up land on the reservation, and laid out
a large sum, like the other settlers along the
wagon  road,  in  permanent  and substantial
improvements.     The  survey  of the   "town
site" did not take place until last spring, wiioii
the  lots were  put up to auction and sold to
the highest bidder.     Mr. Coutlee being the
only occupant, (with the exception of a Chinaman, who had erected a wretched hovel of a
shanty for a  store)   and   having  expended
his   money,    was   ebliged  to   purchase   all
the lots but one, which  his ewn capital had
made  valuable.     This,  however,  is not the
worst feature in the case of injustice, for since
the  lets  were   sold  Mr.   Coutlee  has  been
obliged to pay a "town" license for his hotel,
which   is  doubli  tho amount paid by any
other hotel keeper on the wagon road.  Since
the town reservation was originally laid out a
great change  has occurred in the locality.
The  mines on the Fraser having become exhausted,  the miners have left, and there are
not more  than half a dozen men working in
the neighborhood of Boston Bar, where formerly and in early times there were perhaps
hundreds.   The business now carried on by
Mr. Coutlee is like that of any othor hotel
keeper on the road,   dependent   upon   the
traveling public for support,  and with the
great decrease  in  tratlic  has fallen off immensely.    Instead of granting  relief to the
hotel keepers of the country, by reducing the
license   duty,   the  Government last year increased country liconses from $50 to $100,
and   town licenses from $135 to $200.    The
latter amount Mr. Coutlee is called on to pay,
and to wave himself from penalty, has been
under the necessity of meeting hia first half
year's  license  at that  rate.     Of course the
magistrate of the district hits no option in the
matter  but  to  levy the amount, but we do
not, in fact we cannot, believe, that when the
matter is properly submitted to the Executive,
the imposition—for a gross imposition it would
be—will be carried out.    Unfortunately for
Mr.   Coutlee,   he has  laid out his money at
Boston  Bar, and is entirely at the mercy of
the Government.   The question now remains:
Will advantage be taken of him? Fortunately
Mr. Birch has a knowledge of the  place and
Arrested.—A telegram was received here
by tho officers of police, on Thursday last,
from the magistrate at Quesnelmouth, to arrest James Barry, a passenger on the down
stage, on the charge of murder. On thc arrival of the stage on Thursday evening Chief
Constable Agassis and Constable Coffee arrested the party described in the telegram
and immediately placed him in confinement.
On being asked his name, the young man
gave that of John Corbett, but subsequently
stated that he did not know his interrogator
was an officer, and that his proper name was
James Barry. It is not known what murder
is referred to in the telegram, but it is supposed that at the inquest held on tha body of
the man found near Edwards' place something has been revealed to show that deceased came to his death by foul means, and
that it is in connection with it that Barry is
arrested. Mr. Sutro, who came down by the
stage same time as the prisoner, states that he
saw tho corpse referred to, and that it is at
least a year since the party came to his death.
The flush waa all gene, and nothing left but
bones and the clothes the deceased had on
when ho died. Mr. Sutro thinks, from the
state of tho corpse, no evidence of violence
could be discovered. The young man who is
a prisoner declares that he knows nothing
concerning a murder, and with the exception
of his own imprudence in giving a false name,
we arc Inclined to believe that there are no
grounds whatever for holding him undor arrest. Under present circumstances, and before a tittle of evidence is produced, we think
it a most extreme measure to have the prisoner placed in irons, particularly when there
is not the slightest danger of escape from our
strong jail and the party has not shown a refractory spirit. Barry is an Irishman by birth,
has been several years in this country, is well
known in New Westminster and Cariboo, and
so far as we can learn, bears an irreproachable
character. He has been in Cariboo three or
four seasons, but so far has been unlucky.
At thc timo of his arrest he had not a dollar
in his pocket, and a friend had paid his passago
on the stage. Several parties who know
Barry well came down with him from Quesnelmouth, and they all believe in his entire innocence. Considering bis painful position, he
keeps up his spirits wonderfully, and his whole
demeanor has been and is that of an innocent
man. Wo trust that every leniency will be
shown him by the authorities compatible with
his safe custody. Thc prisoner was taken
before Mr. Sanders, J. P., on Saturday last,
and remanded for a week to await the arrival
of a constable from Quesnelmouth, who, it
waa stated, was on his way down.

Accidixt.—An accident happened to the
machinery of tho steamer Onward, on Wednesday last, near tbe Chilliwhack, on her passage up river, which rendered her further
progress up stream impossible.    Thc accident

have faith in his doing justice in th* matter,
and placing Mr. Coutlee in the same position
as any other country hotel koeper. The
present is not a time when our valuable settlers should be borne down and disheartened
by unjust treatment.
Stranoi Proceiducq.—We are informed
by reliable parties that inconvenience is
felt by merchants and others paying customs
duties at New Westminster, by the officials
refusing to take notes of the Bank of British
North America in payment, and demanding,
instead, gold or notes of the Bank of British
Columbia! Before the Bank ef British North
America opened an office in this colony its
notes were not generally circulated here, and
the few which found thoir way in wcre only
takon at a discount. Matters are now changed,
the bank is fully established in the colony, is
doing an extensive business, which is daily
increasing, and the people are only too eager
to get its notes. The consequence is that
they are now largely in circulation among all
classes of the community, aud any obstacle
thrown in the way of their passage becomes
an inconvenience which the public will not
tolerate or lend their sanction to. The bank
pays th* Government a large license duty for
carrying on business in the country, and it is
entitled to all the privileges extended to any
other establishment, more especially when its
paper is not inferior to that issued by the
Bank of England. We call upon the Executive to set this matter right without delay, as
there is no justification whatever for the
highly impropor course pursued by the customs authorities.

but was fortunately got into a safe place and
tied up. Mr. Lee, thc engineer, and the pilot,
started immediately in a e.noe for New Westminster, arriving there at an early hour next
morning. Steam hav'ng been got up in the
Reliance, she left at 1:50 a. m., on Thursday
morning, arriving at tbe disabled steamer in
tbe afternoon. The cargo and passengers
were soon transferred from the Onward, when
the Reliance came on here, the delay being
very trifling under tho eircurastanees. Mr.
Barnard kept over his stage until the arrival
of the mails, which were on board, and they
were dispatched up country a short time after
the steamer's arrival, so that our friends in the
interior will get their letters and papers at
the same time as if no accident had happened
to tho Onward.
Protbctiom.—We understand that tho Government will be called on immediately to
afford protection to the miners and traders at
Kootenay from the incursions of the Blackfoot Indians. Arms and ammunition should
be sent over to Wild Horse Creek without
delay, otherwise the persons and property of
the residents of the creek are at the mercy of
the savages whenever they-ffla'y feel inclined
to invade the camp. It will be seen by reference to another part of our issue that the
Chinese have already suffered to th* extent
of 60 head of cattle by the natives running
them off. We hope the Government will give
the matter immediate attention.

YALE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1866.
A Kbroskmi Tulxoraph.—An apparatus
termed a "kerosene telegraph" has been invented in Boston. It consisted of two small
boxes, arranged with levers for opening aud
closing apertures, of an inch and a half in
diameter. An ordinary kerosene lamp was
placed in each box with a reflector behind it.
One of these machines veas taken by Cyrus
A. George (also connected with the office) to
a point in East Cambridge, a mile and a half
distant from the City HAll, and at 8+ o'clock
(the time previously agreed upon) his signals
were received by his brother, who was sta
tionedin the fire-alarm office in the cupola of
the City Hall. He answered them, and they
continued to converse with great ease and
rapidity for an hour, aendinc and receiving
messages. They found no difficulty in reading
as accurately and nearly as fast as by the
ordinary means of telegraphing. With this
apparatus the inventor believes he could
operate, easily, five miles in clear weather,
and by increasing the power of the light 10
or 15 miles. An experiment will soon be
made from the Boston office with some distant
point in Roxbury or Dorchester.
