Iu their last congress, held at Auxerre,
the Ruyal sts resolved to organize a system
of agitaiiou among the peasants. Delegates
were to be appointed lo spread thu propaganda in the lural districts, and the speakers were io preach in agricultural strongholds, the advantages of collective ownership. The movement seems to have been
characterized by the indifference or hostilty
of the peasants. To the petty proprietor,
Socialist doctrine about the divisions of the
land means that he is to lose what Utile
lami be tills, so as to benefit others.

The failure of the Northern Ron da to
agree at the -second meeting in Chicage with
the Canadian Pacific over the"sq>jesi<in of
differentials may lead to a third m> eting
instead of a furlher reduction in rates.
In speaking of the situation in the Northwest, C. F. Crocker said: "It has no direct
effect here. The general cutting ot
rates to the Sound has been going on fur
months and it has not affected cur passenger
rates by way of Ogden. There has been
a wide difference in rates betueen
the Canadian Pacific and Northern
Pacific on the oue baud, uud the Union
Pacific and the Central Pacific on the other.
People coiniug to Sail Francisco aie not
willing to travel bjr the northern lines
during winter, so that our first class passenger traffic has not sutler ed and would not
suffer wi' h a difference us great, as $20
favor of the northern lines. It might affect
immigrant business, but at this present
time of year the immigrant travel is not
large. The failure of this conference will
not precipitate a rate war here. So far as
the Northwest is concerned, the war has
been going on for mouths and I do not
think ihat it will grow any worse."
It is possible that 0. P. Huntington may
arrive in this cily eariy in Fubruary and
that he may return with the Ceutral Pacific
officials from their tiip to New Orleans,
although no intimation of the time of his
intended visit haa been received at Fourth

Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific have
been discussing the advisability of raising

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.���An animated discussion took place iu the Senate to-day on

on foreign relations, d* ol wing it unwise und
inexpedient, under o.vi 'ing conditions, to

The Prince Albert Mining Co.
Mr. Geo, D Scott, who is one of the principal shareholders in the Prince Albert
Gold Mining aud Hydraulic Company, in
conversation with a TELEGRAM reporter
sain: "Work "u he mine waB suspended
ju^t. now, owing to the we.ther, but will be
resumed a-; soou ���s possible. The shareholders are well satisfied with the prospects
of ihe propel ly being a paying oue, in fact
they regird it as being out of the prospective siuge and merged into a certainty. We
have nearly everything in readiness to commence washing down the dirt, and having
abundance of water, aud the best machinery,
we anticipate a rich reward for the money
and enterprise which we have expended so
ungrudgingly. We have sunk shafts on
this properly iu several places, and in each
one we found gold iu paying quantities.
In the opinion of an expert, well acquainted
with hydraulic mining in California and
elsewhere, there is uot the least doubt but
it will prove one of the richest diggings on
the continent. Iu no place can a pan of
dirt be taken from it but gold can be seen,
and with the power they have, and the ease
with which tho tailings can be run into the
Fraser river, there is no doubt I ui that the'
Prince Albert is on the eve of b coming a
good paying investment. That it will give
a great impetus to gold mining in British
Columbia is a consideration which should
not be forgotten." This, if for no other
reaso , makes us wish Buccess to lhe enter-
pr.'siig .'hareholilers of the Prince Albert
Comp ny.
They Had a Gay Time.
On Friday night, between lhe hours of
ten anil eleven,as Olhicer McAfee was going
over his bea', he noticed a suspicious looking craft tied up at the Hudson Buy Co. 's
wharf, at Victoria and being curious (as
sometimes officers are) to find out who and
what she wus, he cautiously walked, uuder
the shadow of the freight sheds, until he
reached h r, und then quietly dropped upon
her d"',k. Xnt hearing any movement on
board, be Ir.ed to opeu the cabin door but,
finding it locked, forced it open, aud the
scene ihat met his eyes was one that he
will long remember, for there sat in a dazzling glare of light, three of tue beat known
celebrities on the Americancoutineut, Drisy
Bell and I he two little girls iu blue, drinking, with the greateat gusto, mackie'a white
horso cellar.
The oilier quickly examined the lockera
and found sixteen cases, which they oon-
fcsi'il had been tai, en from the Hudson's
Bay Co. s warehouse.
These three maidens of vocal repute say
that notwithstanding their arreat, they will
atill continue to gargle with the celebrated
blend of the white horae cellar.

NANAIMO, B. C, THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1894.
NEW   HAMPSHIRE'S   FOLLY.
How the White Mountain Reelon Is Heine
Denuoded of Trees.
New Hampshire, says the Manchester
Mirror, has played the fool's part in disposing* of the magnificent stretches of
forest, which but a few years ago
clothed and beautified her northern
mountains and valU-ys.anrt were the unfailing* reservoirs for her streams, the
haunts of her fish ami game and the
sanitariums to which people came from
far and near for rest and recreation and
recuperation. Some of them she sold
for a song*, and others she gave away as
if they were of no value. In oneway
and another the title to them had passed
into the hands of others, generally not
residents of the state.who have become
weathy in trailing upon them and turning them over to the lumbermen to be
dest roy ed.
Not only the timber in the valleys
and upon adjacent slopes has been cut
and carried away, leaving nothing but
repulsive barrenness, but now this is
gone the work of destruction has been
pushed far up the gorge and mountain
sides and into tracts which wero supposed to be Inaccessible and therefore
safe. One such tract south of Gorham.
which wa.s nearly worthless five years
ago, has just been sold for ninety-seven
thousand dollars and is fast being
stripped. To another a tramway ten
miles long is being built from Bemis
station in the Crawford notch, and the
township of Success is being invaded
by another starting from Berlin.
Even Dartmouth college, of which
something besides reckless greed might
be expected, has turned over her splendid grants upon the Androscoggin to
the tender mercies of George Van
Dyke's Canadians, and the Concord &
Montreal railroad has spent five hundred thousand dollars to make it profitable for somebody to denude the town
of Randolph and the base of Mount
Adams.
Worse than this even are the preparations to extend the railroad from North
Woodstock to the Profile and to build
another up the east branch so that some
millionaire can turn the spruce trees
there into money. Within five years at
the present rate the supply of sprue*'
will be exhausted, and the hard wood
in townships reached by railroads will
not last more than ten or twelve.
When spruce is removed it is followed
by wild cherry and poplar, and even
were the cleared lands in the White
mountains not overrun by fires nearl3-
every year, as they are, the forests
could not lie replaced.
The case is a bad one. What can be
done about it? To do anything is very
much like locking the stable after the
horse has been stolen. The Boston
Herald's remedy is to have the state exercise its right of eminent domain, and
retake the lands which it threw away,
paying their owners of course their
value. This involves an enormous expenditure, and is. at best, an inadequate remedy, but it is about the only
one offered. If it is to be applied at all.
no time can be lost, and the next legislature must act. The subject is worth
careful consideration and earnest discussion even in the midst of a national
campaign. 	
A Horse Whose Name  Was Once Before
a Committee ol' Congress.
Blaekstone. the favorite saddle horse
of the late Samuel ,1. Tildon, died of old
age the other morning, says the New
York Sun, This famous horse came of
thorough-bred Kentucky stoek and was
purchased, together with his driving
mate Miller, by Mr. Tilden from a Mr.
Riley about twenty-fivo years ago,
Blaekstone, who was brought from Kentucky when about seven years oh'., was
a beautiful animal, sixteen hands high,
black as jet, clean limbed and possessing all the advantages of an illustrious
pedigree. Mr. Tilden became extremely
fond of his new purchase, and it was an
everyday occurrence to see the noted
statesman trotting Blaekstone around
the park.
Blaekstone had national fame at one
time, when the vote of Florida was for
sale, in December, 18"(i, and Manton
Marble was in that state reporting on
the state of affairs.
"Tell Russia to saddle Blaekstone,"
was the concluding sentence of one of
the cipher dispatches, The Tribune,
which was engaged afterward in Interpreting them, construed this t<> moan
"Tell Tilden to resort to legal pi ceilings"���certainly an ingenious conjecture. Mr. Marble explained before the
Potter committee that he meant things
were goihg well and that .Mr. Tilden
might enjoy his daily rid**.
At Qreystone, the beautiful place
Mr. Tilden owned on tin* Hudson, the
olrl horse passed his declining years. A
short time before Mr. TiMon's death
Blaekstone wns put upon the retired
list, and since that time he hail been
well eared for. Although he outlived
all the other horses that were at Grey-
stone during the lifetime of its owner,
the famous animal maintained his liveliness nearly to the hist. Said Mr. Del-
ehanty, who has been employed at
Greystone since the place came into
Mr. Tilden's possession:
"The old horse acted more like a colt
than an animal thirty-two years old.
Now and then we took him out for exercise and you should have seen him
cover the ground between here and
Yonkers."
When asked if the horse was gentle
he replied: "Well, as to that, all 1 can
say it was a Kentucky thoroughbred,
and you know what that means. He
ran away with Mr. Tilden one time in
New York, but there was nothing
vicious about him."
Of late Blaekstone bad been allowed
to roam unmolested in the pasture and
it was there that Mr. Delehanty found
him dead.
"We expected it," ho said, "for he
was so old that he could hardly eat, but
I'm sorry the old horse has gone. We
have buried him down there by the
river, and, although it's only a horse
after all, it seems as though an old
friend was missing."

HOW   VESSELS   TALK   AT   SEA.
The System of I.r *l*rs by Which Collisions
Are Avoided in the Dark.
How do you suppose collision is
avoided between vessels in the night
time? asks a writer in Harper's Young
People. The precautions adopted arc
very simple, consisting* of two colored
lights for sailing' vessels and three for
steamships. Sailing vessels carry a
green light on the starboard side and a
red lijjht on the port side. These lights
are so constructed as to show from right
ahead to a point a little abaft the beam,
and are of sufficient power to be seen at
a distance of at least two miles. The
sidelights prescribed bylaw for steamships are the same as those for sailing
vessels, and, in addition, the former
class of vessels carries what is known
as a mast-head light. The front of thi:
consists of a thick pane of uncolored
grass, so arranged that the light shows
from right ahead to a little abaft the
beam ou each side. It derives its name
from being hoisted as high as the lower
mast-head, so that its light may be seen
at least five miles away.
Steamships are obliged by law to
give the right of way to sailing vessels
unrler all circumstances, but officers of
the latter of ten invite collision by getting nervous upon the approach ol a
steamer, and altering the course of
their ship. When a steamer is towing
another vessel, the former carries two
mast-head lights, one above the other.
and three feet, apart. Steamers navigating rivers and bays do not carry tlie
mast-head light, but in its place a powerful white light, called a stem light, is
placed at the prow of the vessel, and
this, like the mast-head light, shows
from right ahead to a little abaft the
beam. In addition to this light a
globular lantern is hoisted on the after
part of the steamboat and at least
twenty feet above the stem light. The
former light is called a range light,
aud shows from every point of the compass.
Imagine a dark and stormy night at
sea, the wind whistling through the
rigging and driving the rain into the
faces of the men whose watchful eyes
sweep the sea. Suddenly through the
gloom a little colored star shows for a
moment, and is lost, to reappear a moment later against the black background, then to vanish once again.
Have you any idea of the story told to
the watcher by that twinkling- point of*
colored light out yonder'.' Xo sooner is
it observed thau it is known to bel >ng
to a sailing ship, for if it was a steamer
the powerful white light hoisted away
above the deck would first come into
view. The direction of the wind and
the color of the light tell the course
that the ship out there is heading, and
so the helm is shifted if necessary and
collision averted.

A Miss u'.ri w oman*s True   Aim   Dropped
n Hull at, the Right Mrrmont,
Mrs. Carrie I lolmes, win lives ttbont
a mile from Kinkaid, Mo., saved the
life of a book agent in a remarkable
manner a few days ago. The man tva *
going from house to house selling his
books, anil in order to shorten the distance went across lots, anil i:r doing so
entered a field where there was a vicious
bull known all over the country as a
man-killer. The book agent saw the
bull but paid little attention to his
demonstrations, says the >7ew York
Herald, until the enraged animal was
so close upon him that he had littl**
hope for escape, lie dropped his books
and went yelling for the !'. nee, but the
bull closed upon him anil was just
about to strike him with his horns
when the man stumbled aud fell, the
animal passing on and turning to attack
him as he lay. Just at this moment
Mrs. ITolmes, who had heard the yelling of the agent, appeared on the scene
with a rifle, and as the bull charged on
the unfortunate man, she fired, the ball
taking effect in the brute's head, and
dropping him within ten feet of where
the man lay. Airs. Holmes was fully a
hundred yards away when she fired,
and is being congratulated on all sides
for her good shot. She has been handling a rifle for many years and is con-
sidered one of the best shots, in the
vicinity, but this is the first time Bhe
has been able to demonstrate that it is
advisable for a woman to learn how to
handle weapons.

THE DEBATE ON   THE ADDRESS
CONCLUDED.
The debate on the address in the Provincial Parliament is over, and the real
work of the session v ill now be proceeded
with. The debate on the address is always
very much in the nature of a preliminary
skirmish, and the sooner it is got out of
band the better. On the present occasion
the debate was chiefly remarkable for the
virulent tone of the speeches made by
Messrs. Cotton and Brown, the i-elf-appoint-
ed leaders of the Independent branch of the
Opposition. The speeches made by Mr,
Beaven, the leader of the old opposition,
were moderate by comparison. Mr. Brown
is not altogether pi ased with the reply to
the separatists circulated by the Government, nor if the truth were known with his
own connection with them. He now appears to recognise when too late the folly of
that movement, and hiB own especial folly
in signing the manifesto, We think that if
he had it to do now, he would not sign it at
all. But having signed it he of *��� ���nrse
brazens it out, and boasts that he never
denied the fact. It is not uncharitable, we
think, to conclude that he has not denied it
simply because he could not. That lie and
Mr. Cotton were both in sympathy with the
movement is also a fact which it would be
useless to deny, though Mr. Cotton, we believe, does so. But then no one believes
him, not even Mr. Cotton himself.
The senior member for Vancouver is much
exercised because the Opposition and Independent leaders���the latter of whom he admits are also in opposition, but of course
blames the Government for it���were on
Monday left without data furnished by the
mover and seconder of the address whereon
to base their remarks regarding the redistribution bill. Mr. Cotton should keep his
soul in patience, and not make himself too
absurd. The reply to tbe address is usually
moved and seconded by junior members of
the House on the Government, side; and as
it is not usual for an) G**veinnieiit t** employ a junior member to * X|.lai*i ihe rlcails
of an important Govemment measure, it
would have been alloguthi r* c mtrary lo rule
to ask either the mover or seconder of the
address to enter on the subject of the redistribution bill, and attempt an explanation
of its principles. This will bo done by the
leader of the Government when the bill is
tabled, and he opens the debate upon it. It
will theu be seen how Mr. Cotton replies to
the ministerial statement; for he will no
doubt modestly atsume that function, as the
active leader of the Opposition, though
self-appointed. It seems to be the opinion
of Mr. Cotton and the Independent branch
of the Opposition, which he assumes to lead,
that Mr. Beaven ought to be retired, ns
superannuated and altogether out of date.
It will be to little purpose for
the managing editor to present to his readers
an Improved version of his speech upon the
occasion, and an abreviate.l and totally unfair version of lhe speeches made ou the
Government side, if his own speech falls
very flat in the House, as ic usually does.
The senior member for Vancouver will do
well to husband his energies for the great
occasion whicn is approaching, instead of
frittering them away iu writing absurd
editorials of the sort which he published on
Tuesday last, and of which he promises a
further supply at an early date.
3. That the people have lost all confidence
in the administration of justice, as the
Supreme Court is now filled with adventurers.
4. That the fundB have been squandered for
the maintenance of an unnecessarily large
army composed entirely of aliens.
5. That all ihe native aud foreign royalists ha*.e been disarmed.
6. That foreign clubs and leagues, composed mostly of Germans, Portuguese and
Scandinavians, have been called into exist-
encejfor the support of the revolutionary
government.
7. That these clubs have threatened murder, violence and depredations against those
not in sympathy with them.
The memorialists say that though monarchical government may not be approved
of by the democracy of the United States,
it is the fornr of government preferred by
the people of Hawaii, who pray, in the
name of justice and right, tbat they be
again allowed to enjoy the blessings of autonomy and the constitutional regime which
was wickedly overthrown on the 17lh of
January, 1892. This memorial, coming, as
it does, from a native source ought to have
great weight, as expressing the real opinion
of the people of Hawaii. It confirms the
position of Commissioner Blount in his report, an 1 also the position taken by President Cleveland's administration, that the
provisional government was set up by Minister Stevens and certain American sympathisers in the islands against tho will of the
native population of Hawaii, who want to
see the queen restored. But in spite of it,
we expect to see the press of the United
States, with few exceptions, going on asserting that the provisional government is the
rightful government of Hawaii, and that it
would be nothing short of an outrage to restore the niieen. It will be interesting to
observe what Congress will do in the matter,
whether it will bow to the clamor of the
press, or support President Cleveland's honorable policy. We confess that we aro not
sanguine that the majority will support the
president in this mutter. His policy on the
Hawaiian question does not seem popular
with average Americans, that is with the
majority of them.

THE MEMORIAL OF THE HA WAIL
AN Pa TRIOTIC LEAGUE.
The memorial of the Hawaiian Patriotic
League, whioh Minister Willis has forwarded to President Cleveland, is an important
document. The league claims to represent
9,000 legal voters in the Hawaiian islands,
and is signed by the president of the association and by a member of ita executive
council, who say that they were appointed
a oommittee for that purpose. The memorial, which is addressed to President Cleveland, says that the people of Hawaii are
moved with deep concern at the condition
affairs there, and at the hostility developed in the United States against his
policy for the restoration of Queen Liluo-
kalani.    The memorial goes on to state:
1. That through Minister Stevens' conspiracy, the Hawaiian people have been
deprived of their political rightB.
2. That the inhabitants of Hawaii are
now living under an arbitrary rule.
THE ARRAIGNER'S ANSWERED.
Tbe  Province  Shown to Be in a Good
Financial Condition.
The agitation made last year by some few
in favor of separation, is still in the minds
of the people. In view of this fact, tbe
following text of the Government's reply
to itB indicters makes interesting reading.
It is entitled a "Reply to British Columbias'
detainers," and was circulated in the House
when the session assembled:
"The committee of council have had under oonsid* ration a communication from the
Deputy Minister of Justice to the Hon. the
Altorney-Genernl, dated 17th Suly, 1S83,
enclosing copy of a petition purporting to
be signed by F. Filian, E. W. Griffiths, and
1,024 others, praying that His Excellency
the Governor-General might be pleased lo
veto, an act of the legislature of last session,
entitled 'un act to provide for the erection
of new buildings for the accommodation of
the provincial legislature and the public depigments, and submitting a series of statements in support of the prayer of such
petition:
"The report of the Hon. the Attorney
General, to whom the matter was referred,
remarks that whilso under the 'British
North America Act, 1867,' in each province
ihe legislature has the exclusive right ot
legislation, amongst other things, upon the
subject of (a) the amendment of the constitution, except as regirds the office of Lieutenant Governor, (6) the borrowing of
money on the sole credit of the province,
and (**) local works and undertakings, and
the complaint of the petitioners is as to
matters coming under one or other of the
exolusive Mlhj *p|s of jurisdiction ju-t men-
ti.jnui, yei um * Ire n i em ion of lira Excellency th- (I verudr General in Council
should be drawn to the ks hereiuifter
slatr d.
"An to so muoh of the petition as alleges
that the estimates submitted to the legislature at its last session show an estimated
expenditure of $1,276,000, as against an estimated revenue of 1*1,000,000, 'thus showing a deficit of ��210,000 to be made up fiom
borrowed money in order to carry on the
ordinary work of the country,' the Minister
remarks that the quoted statement is misleading and untruthful, as implying that the
sum of S210,000 is to be made up from
money to be borrowed for that purpose���
the fact, on the cont.ary, being that in the
year 1891 it was decided by the legislature
to raise a loan of ��1,000,000 for the purpose
of undertaking works of public utility
throughout the Province; that the money
was borrowed accordingly, and had been
only partially expended at the time of the
voting of he intimates alluded to, when
there remained in the treasury the
sum of near ly **'i00,000, Rod ihat in
pursuance of the purpose for which
the said $1,000,000 lo.tu was raised lire es'.i-
urater*r*t'XpHiiditiiie was made to exceed the
estimated revenue, the surplus to be lakeu
out, of the balance of lhe loau so remaining
iu the treasury; that the total estimated expenditure was not $l,27ti,000, aB alleged in
the petition, but was $1,277,167, of which
sum, so far from the charges of government
and maintenance, other than works of development, amounting to $1,011,000, as alleged in the petition, the sum of $185,855
be voted for the purposes of education, exclusive of school buildings, the sum of $129,-
500 for buildings, schools, etc., the sum of
$50,000 for surveys throughout the province,
the sum of $215,500 for roads, bridges and
wharves and $88,408 for miscellaneous expenditure:
"That the finances of the province are in
a sound and healthy condition, its inscribed
stock ranking third amongst colonial securities, the Dominion of Canada being first.the
colony of Ceylon second, and the Province
of British Columbia third; that the province
has recently become the highway of a profitable trade which has sprung up between
Canada uud the Australias and the Orient,
and that Victoria, the capital of the province, is the first port of call in the province
for vessels engaged in the trade; that the
buildings for the use of the publio offices
and legislature of the provinoe, erected in
the very early colonial days when British
Columbia was isolated from the rest of the
world, have now boeome unfitted for the
purposes of the province, and are moreover
in a very dilapidated condition, and Ihat in
view of the necessity which exiBts for new
public buildings, the legislature at its last
session resolved to expend the sum of $600,-

000 in the erection of a suitable structure.
The inference of the petition, apparently, is
that no more than $600,000 is to be expended in the work, whereas the intention
of lhe act is to limit the expenditure wi'hin
that, amount.
"As lo so much of the petition as asserts
that the legislative asaetnnly ii aud has bee
for years non-representative of the people of
the provinoe, the minister observes that,
with certain additions to the number of
members, the basis of representation is the
same as that which existed at the time of
confederation, when the white population of
the island of Vancouver largely exceeded
that of the mainland. The number of members being then 25 for the whole province,
was apportioned, notwithstanding tho inequality in population, by giving thirteen to
the mainland and twelve to the island, and
the same ratio has boon kept up ever since.
"The last doceuni.il census showed that
the mainland had a total population of
���61,406, and tho island of 36,767, and action
upon this basis the Government concluded to
bring down a bill for redistributing the seats
in the legislative assembly, but upon analyzing the census returns, and deducting the
Chinese and Indians, who are not voters, it
appeared that the white population on Vancouver Island was still in excess of that of
the mainland of British OnUilii.*.."
The correspondence upon tlio subject of
the census returns, and which correspondence took place during the Session of the
last Legislature, already published; is
given, and the report proceeds as follows:
"Thai, since tho date of lire Inst, communication above set out, the census schedules
iu the department at Ottawa have been
scrutinized, and, as a resu t, iustead of
placing the white population of Vancouver
Island at 28,259, and of the Mainland at
26,045, as shown by the Department of
Agriculture, the white population appears
to be distributed as between the Mainland
and Island as follows, viz.:
"On the Mainland, 37,293, and on Vanoouver Island 27,997.
"It will thus readily be Been that unless
the Government were prepared at the lime
of the session of the legislature to accept as
a basis of its promised redistribution measure a population of whites upon Vancouver
island in excess of those upon the mainland,
it was not in a position, iu view of the information received from the department of
agriculture, to introduce the redistribution
measure at that time, and that, conse
ijuently, if tho oensus returns were to be a
governing feature in framing the bill,
nothing else could bo reasonably done than
to postpone the measure, which was accordingly done.
"As to so muoh of the petition as -stales
that the provinoe is divided into eighteen
constituencies, with a total registered vole
of 15,1)60, and that of these voters 12,691
are registered in Beven constituencies, whioh
elect sixteen members, and the remaining
-2,869 voters are registered in eleven constituencies, whioh eleot seventeen members,
the Minister remarks that   the  number of
I registered voters in any particular conaitu-
i ency ia not by any means an accurate imii j
cation of the number of persons who are
eligible for the franchise in such conititu- ;
ency, inasmuch as no scrutiny has hitherto j
beeu made of thu claims of persons applying to be registered as voters, and in son*
constituencies apathy and indifference in
the registration of voters has been the rule,
whilst, in other constituencies a detrimental
and persistent effort has been made to place
names upon the register of voters. The
Minister moreover remarks that population
naturally flows to the cities, which in point
of population largely outnumber the outlying districts, iucluding those districts where
the principal industries of the country, i-uch
aa farming, mining, lumbering, are carried
on. That it has always been the policy of
this province to accord the outlying districts
just representation, aid it is noteworthy
that, the real complaint of the petitioners
seems to be that the cities are not accorded
all, or nearly all, of the representation.
That as to bo much of the petition as asserts
that, the mainland has an area of 366,300
Bquare miles, whereas Vancouver island
embraces 16,002 square miles only; that the
maiuli nd portion has therefore greater need
of expenditure upon works of development,
and that the said mainland portion contributes over two-thirds of the total revenue
collected within the Province, the Minister
observes that the principle haB always been
recognized by succebaive legislatures, that,
on account of its larger area the rrainland
has greater need of expenditure upon works
of development, and that, acting upon Bnch
principle, even in years when the revenue
of the mainland did net equal that of Vancouver island, and ever since Confederation,
the proportionate expenditure for suoh
works upon the mainland hus largely exceeded what would havo been its share, in
proportion to population, and to the contri
bution of the mainland toward the revenue.

How Some of the Great Forest Giants  of
California Grow.
On the camping grounds of the Bohemian club on Austin creel*:, and in the
Armstrong tract near Guerneville, one
finds the lowland redwood in perfection. In such places, says tho Century,
there are often rings of groat trees inclosing pits five or six feet deep, and
thirty, forty, or even fifty feet in
diameter. Each of these pits is supposed to show where the venerable
ancestor of the surrounding circle of
trees once stood. Long before it fell,
innumerable sprouts grew from the yet
living roots. Afterward, when the
giant yielded, the rains washed new
soil into the "bottoms" from the
mountain sides, to fill the deep chasm.
For aeenturj- or so there was a struggle
among the children of the fallen monarch, and at last only seven or eight remained, to become great trees of
twelve feet in diameter set on the rim
of the pit formed by the decay of the
roots of the ancient tree, and each having a complete root system of its own.
Other trees, seedlings or sprouts grow
up between them, and in a few more
centuries the process of forming another
redwood tree ring will be repeated
about the largest of the second growth.
Rings of this sort can be found in all
stages of formation in every canyon and
valley of the redwood country. Some
very large rings still show the broken
edges of the central tree's roots projecting like the staves of a barrel
around the hollow, overgrown with
ferns and wild oxalis, or filled to the
brim with fresh, spicy redwood sprouts.
The green spires of the living forest,
three hundred feet high, filter the air
through their innumerable branches,
and shut out all but faint blue sparkles
of the sky. The dust of one of the
pioneers is underfoot, and a little tree of
last year's growth is struggling to gain
a place. The red-bronze trunks of the
trees stand like a wall, hiding the rise
of the mountains, hilling the banks of
the river, though ono hears the sound
of its flow, and the splash of little
trout streams in the canyons. Such
groves as this are the temples of the
California forest system.

A Dastardly Act.
While a party of young ladies and young
men waa coasting last night on Hospital
Hill, some person, unknown, committed a
most dastardly act. About half way down
the hill at the crossing of Milton street,
which causes the sleighs to vault somewhat,
a snowball was thrown right into the face of
the Bteerer, causing him to lose control and
the sleigh to be precipitated iuto the ditch.
Fortunately no one was seriously hurt, but
the Bteerer, George H. Pound, an employee
of The Telegram, who was severely braised
about 'he legs which will prevent his working for a few days. Thisptaetiee of snowballing is beooming far too prevalent and
should certainly be suppressed, as thia is by
no means the first case of the kind.

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By Eric St. C K. Ross.)
CHAPTER IX.
STARING  RUIN  IN THE FACE.
There was a geueral meetiug of tradesmen in one of the ante-rooms of Mr. Evelyn's house n*?xt morning, and the proprietor's gambling propensities were the
subject of conversion.
"So," slid Tabouret in a half whisper, "I
hear ihat Mr. Evelyn has turned gamester.
There are strange reports about to-day. I
don't know what to make of it. XVe must
look sharp,-Mr. Finch, we poor tradesmen,
and rnrikn hay while 'lie sun shines."
"I wish those gaming bouses were rill in
the pit of Tophot," returned Mr. Finch, us
Caplain Srnnol h appeared, ooming fr**m an
inner r*-*om, pncket-book and pencil in hand.
"Hum, ha!" murmured the captain, looking round     "Fine pictures."
Then fouling tho curtains, lie proceeded���
"The new-fashioned velvet, hum! good-
propoi'tioned rooms! Yes, ihis house is
better than Glossmore'sl Oh, Mr. Tabouret,
tha upholsterer! yr>:i furnished theso rooms!
All nf tli,. best, eh?"
"Oh, the very best!" returned Tabouret,
"Mr Evelyn is not a man to grudge expense, air!"
"He is not, indeed," said Smooth.
"You've been paid, I suppose, Tabouret?"
"No sir, no���I never send in my bills when
a custo rrer is rich. Bills a*-e like trees, and
gtrrw by standing "
"Hu'nphl" murmure i Smooth. "Not
paid? humph!" and the tradesmen gather
round him.
"I dirina like that lioornph, there's something vara suspeeoious abun'it," said Mr.
Finch.
"It's the great card-player, Captain
Smooth," whispered Tabourt to lhe others.
"Finest player m Europe, cleaned out. the
Duke of Sillyvale. Uncommonly clever
man!"
"Ah!" proceeded Smooth, pacing about
the room. "Thirty-six feel by tweuty-
eigh',���Urn! I think a bow-winrloiv there
would be an improvement! could it be done
easily, Tabourei?"
"If Mr. Evelyn wishes to pool about his
house, there's no mon like my friend Mr.
Stucco "
"Evelyn?" cried Smooth.    "I was  speaking of myself.    Mr. Stucco!���humph!"
"Yoursolf !" exolaimed Tabouret.
"Have you bought the  h.iuse, sir*"' asked
everybody.
"Bought it?" ��� exclaimed tbe captain.
"Hum!���ha!���it depends. So you've not
been paid yet?���um! Nor you, nor you, nor
you?    Hum; ha!"
"No, sir!���what then?" asked Tabouret,
"no fear of Mr. Evelyn!    Ha! ha!
"Ha! ha!���what then?" cried the others
in chorus.
"Hum! ha!" murmured tho captain.
"Ah, sir, what then?" asked Mr. Finch,
"I'm a puir mon with a family; this way,
captain! You've a leetle account in the
bulks; an' we'll e'en wipe it out altogether,
gin you'll say what you moan by that
"Hoom ha!"
"Finch, my dear fellow," cried the captain, ''don't * blige me to cane you; I would
not have Mr. Evelyn distressed for the
world. Poor fellow! he holds very bad
cardt*. So you've not got paid yet? Don't
Bend in your bills on any account���mind!
Yes; I don't dislike the house with some alteration.    Good day to you���Hum! ha!"
"Plain as a pikestaff!" cried Tabouret.
"He staked his very house on an odd
trick."
All the tradesmen began to walk about
excessively alarmed at this expression of
opinion. At this instant too, to add to
their suspicions and misery, Toke, Mr. Evelyn's valet, appeared. They all waylaid him
at once, shouting���
"What's the matter?"
"Don't stop me." cried the man, "I'm
going to the Belgian minister's for my master's passport to Ostend."
"Passport! Ostend!" some of them
cried, wringing their hands from apprehension, and walking about in a terribly
unhappy slate.
"And all dat \ il he seen of the great
Evelyn cost, r* the back of it! exclaimed
Fruntz "Downer and hat/ell- I vill
arrest him���1 Mil put desalt ou de tail ot
it!"
"I'll e'en gang to my cooain the la'yer,"
said Mr. Finch. "Nothing but poetience
for us, Mr. Tabouret."
"We will wait���nothing bul patience,
gentlemen," cried Tabouret, "make hasie
stick by each other���share and share alike���
that'd my way sir."
"Share and sharo alike," cried the mass
as they hurried away."
The next moment Toke returned, followed by Lord Glossmore and Sir Frederick
Blouut.
"My master is not very well," said the
man, "but I'll let him know, my lord," and
he went, to deliver the message.
"I'm very curious to learn the result of
his gambling tel.e-ahte," said the peer.
"There aro strange reports abroad, and the
tradesmen have taken the alarm."
"Oh, he's so howwidly wich, he can afford
a tete-a-tete with Deadly Smooth," remarked
Blount.
"Poor old Stingy Jack," Glossmore went
on; "why, Georgina was your iuteuded," ho
adder) to Blouut.
"Yes; and I really liked i ho girl," drawled the young baronet," though out of pique
I pwopotred to her cousin. Hut �� hat can a
man do against money?"
As he spoiie Evelyn endued the room, but
he halted with tho portierre in his hand, unseen.
fair," prooeeded Sir
Bee whom Georgina
she's oacwifioed by
i   much   as   told   me
"If we could start
Frederiok,   "you'd
would   pweferj   but
her  father.     She
so!"
"Ah!" said Evelyn. "I'll work atill
further on Sir John, through these excellent
friends of mine. So, so, gentlemen," he
said, coming forward "we've a little account
to settle���one hundred each." "Don't talk
of it."
"Well, I won't," said Evelyn, taking
Blount aside as Glossmore retired. "Ha!
ha! you'd hardly bolieve it, butt I'd rather
not pay you just at present; my money is
looked up, and 1 must wait, you know, for
the Groginhole rents. So, instead of owing
you ono hundred pounds suppose I owe you
five? You can give me a oheque for the
other four. And, harkye! not a word to
Glossmore."
"Glossmore!" exclaimed Blount, "the
gweatest gossip in London! 1 shall be
delighted! It never does harm to lend
to a witch man; one gets it back somehow. By the way, Evelyn, if you want my
gway cab-horse, you may have him for
two hundred pounds, and that will make
seven."
"That's the fashionable usury," murmured Evelyn   to   himself,   "your   friend
does not take interest���he sells yuu a horse.
Blount, its a bargain. Now for my other
friend."
"No," murmured Blount, writing the
cheque, and musingly, "I don't see what
harm i* cau do nre; that tf leg musr. end in
epaviu."
"That hundred pounds I owe you is rather
inconvenient at presi nt," said Evelyn to the
peer. "I've a large sum to make up for tlie
Groginhole pmp r y; perhaps you would
lend nre rive or* s x hundred more, just 10 go
on vvrth?"
"(J'.rtaiuly!' returned the peer. "Hopkins is dead; your interest for Cipher
would "
"Why, I can't promise that at this moment," said Evelyn. "But as a slight mark
6f friendship and gratitude, I shall Bo very
much flattered if you'll acoept a splendid
grey cab-horse I bought to-day, cost two
hundred pounds!"
"Bought to-day! then I'm safe," mur.
mured Lord Glossmore, "My dear fellow!
you're always so princely,"
"Nonsense! just write the cheque," said
Evelyn, "and, hark ye! not a syllable lo
Blount."
"Blount! He's the town crier!" cried the
peer.
And he went to the desk to write a
cinque, as Blonnt came t*> Evelyn wi: b his,
saying, "Wansom's, Pull Mail East."
"Tbank you." said Evelyn. "So you proposed to Mies Douglas!"
"Hang il! yes," returned Blount; "I could
have sworn that she fancied mi:; her manner, for instance, that very ibry you pwo-
posed for Mi��R Vesey."
"Here, Evelyn," snid Glossmore, giving
thechique. "Ransom's, Pall Mall E.st.
Tell me, did you win or* lose last night?"
"Win! lose! oh!" cried Evelyn. "No
more of that, if you love me. I must Bend
off at once to the bankers," he continued,
looking at tho two cinques.
"Why! he's borrowed from Biouat, too!"
murmured the pier to himself.
"That's a cheque from Lord Glossmore!"
thought Blount, uneasily.
"Excuse me; I must dress," Evelyn went
on. "1 have not a moment to lose. You
remember you dine with me today, seven
o'clock. You'll meet Smooth," he added,
with tears in his voice. "It may be the
last lime I shall ever welcome you here!
My���what am I saying? Oh, merely a joke;
good-bye, good-bye."
And he shook them heaitily by the hand
before retiring to the inner rooms. When
he had gone they stared at each other in
astonishment.
"Glossmore!" exclaimed Blount.
"Blount!" cried Glossmore.
"I'm afwaid all's not wight!"
"I incline to your opinion!"
"But I've sold my gwey cab-horse," said
Blount.
"Grey cab-horse! you!" cried Glossmore.
"What is be rei Uy w irth now?"
"Since he is so:d, I will 'el! you," replied
Blount.    "Not a sixpence."
"Not a sixpence?" returned the peer; "he
gave it to me!"
"That was devilish unhandsome!" exclaimed Sir Frederick. "Do you know, I
feel nervous!"
"Nervous?" oried his lordship. "Let us
run and stop payment of our cheques "
Here Toke reappeared, going rapidly towards the door.
"Hallo! Toke! where so fast?" asked
Blount.
"Beg pardon, Sir Frederick," said the
man, in great haste. "I'm going to Pall
Mall East, Ransom's, Bankers," and he ran
out.
"Come," said Sir Frederick, solemnly,
"Glossmore, we are floored."
"Sir," returned Glossmore, "the whole
town shall know of it."
"Vewy wight," agreed Sir Frederick.
"Vewy cowwect," and they hurried away
to fulfill their laudable mission without loss
of time.
