Mr. Edward Mohun, the well-known civil
ani sanitary engiueer, is in the city and t
gueBt at the Windsor. It will be remem
bered that Mr. Mohan is the Government
engineer in charge of the N *kusp and Slocan
railroad to whom Mr. Th* mas Edward
Kitchen referred at the Opposition meeting
at Wellington a week ago.
In an interview with a representative of
this paper, Mr. Mohun said he did not care
to mix up in political matters. So far as
the above road is concerned, he is simply
interested, he said, iu seeing the Province
protected. He has most untnistakeable instructions iu this regard both written and
verbal.
When told that Mr. Kitchen stated at
Wellington that only about twenty miles of
the road was completed, Mr. Mohun replied
that this was not the case. The whole of
the roud is practically built with the exception of putting down the rails aud the super-
structre of some of the trestles and bridges.
Continuing, he said there may* be some weak
spots which the snow slides will text and
expose, and which w ill have to be made
good by the contractor. Beyond this, six
weeks or two mouths' work will complete
the road.
"When do you expect to bave it ready for
traffic?"
"About the end of June," replied Mr.
Mohun, "which will bo six months earlier
than theoontract calls for."
"Mr. Kitchen sta ed at Wellington that
he had taken out bills of quantities, and
thai, $17,51)0 per mile was an excessive
price."
"Mr. Kitchen may have doue so, but I
scarcely think it. The survey was only
compUted iu December, and is only within
the pust fortnight or so that the last batch
of plans reached Victoria. Besides, Mr.
Kitchen has, to the best of my knowledge,
never seen the cross sections and could nol
have taken out bills of quantities without
them."
"Could one make such a calculation without going over the work?"
"No; as a matter of fact no one, except
the engineer on the ground, eould take out
the qu.niities."
"Mr. Kitchen also complained that the
Government had lost heavily by not having
a preliminary survey and an estimate of the
cost of construction made, before the contracts wore signed. What is your opinion?"
"While it does no harm to have a preliminary survey made, it would make no
difference in the final result so far as the
cost is concerned. If a preliminary survey
had been made the work would have been
delayed six months. Tenders are called for hy
quaiili ies, and these can ouly be accurately
determined by actual measurements as the
work progresses,"
"How about the rails, Mr. Mohun? Mr.
Kitchen said I hey were no good, or rather
uot suitable."
"I cannot blieve that Mr. Kitchen has
ever been through the country traversed by
this road or is personally aware of what is
going on in connection with its construction
ihe rails are certainly not new hut they are
perfectly good for the traffic They are the
56 lb. rails put down on the nn.in line of the
0. P. K. They were not taken up because
they are worn out, but to be replaced hy
heavier rails because the company are using
heavier locomotives than formerly. AU rails
aro culled at. Nakusp before beiug accepted."
"What is the character ot the couutry,
Mr. Mohun?"
"It is simply a mountain pass with many
curves aud heavy side hill work along its
entire length. It is heavily timbered in
places und a gieat deal of heavy side hill
rock culling' hail to be done in others, In
faot, li ' e an* all sorts of cuttings; some
grav . - nd, clay, solid rock and loose rock,
bar''    t k ami soft rock."
1 * Kitchen said in his calculation he
htto i'l |1.(50 per yard."
"A 1 ,*.u say to this is if he had taken
out quantities at his own price the work
would cost more that $17,500 per mile.
Some of the roadbed will run 8,000 yards to
the mile and some of it over 20,000, to say
nothing of trestle work aud bringes. The
latter vary in length from 25, 30, 40, 50 and
up to .'tin feet, and run 40, 50 and up to 90
feet in height. The cheapest of these cannot be built foi less than $5 a ruuniug foot,
and Howe trusses, where used, cost for small
spans $30 per i unniut' foot. In short at
$17,500 per mile it is the cheapest bit of
railway construction ever done in the Province.
"For the purpose of your estimates on behalf thu Government how do you proceed or
what basis do you work on?"
"The work of construction, so far as the
Government is concerned, and on which my
estimates are based, is divided into three
sections. The first is L'.'IJ miles and estimated at $14,350 per mile; the second, 5.|
miles, and estimated at $16,000 per mile;
the third, 8 miles, and estimated at $25,000
per mile. My estimates have all been under
these figures with 10 per cent, held back
until the whole work is completed."
" Kitchen staled that you were supposed
to not look closely after the contractor, or
rather that the interests of the Province
were to be a second consideration, so far as
you wero concerned."
'There is not the slightest foundation for
such a st ktemont. As I stated before, my
instructions are imperative in this regard. I
have gone over every foot of   the road   aud

"All I can say in reply to this is that all
the C.P R. engineers give the road and
work a good character, and as I am the only
Government engineer engaged in connection
With il, you can draw your own conclusions."
This ended the interview. The reader
who is conversant with Mr. Kitchen's contentious at Wellington will have no difficulty in arriving at the true value of Mr.
Kitchen's statements.
THE   REFORM   FARCE.
The Defendant Held to Appear Before
the Grand Jury Should the Plaintiffs
Decide to Enter an Indictment Against
Him-HiB Worship Held it Was Not a
Case tor the Crown���The Plaintiffs
Must Put Up Bonds if They Decide to
Continue the Prosecution in a Higher
Court.
The Sixth Act in the Reform Farce "Our
Boys," took place in the police court yesterday. It was thought at the outset that it
would not require more than five acts to
complete the plot in this most amusing legal
comedy, but like Chinese plays it is likely
to he continued for some time yet.
The plaintiffs, whom it may be remarked,
are identical with the solicitors, endeavoured when the case opened, to introduce
new witnesses, but as they had closed their
case at the fonner hearing Mr. Yarwood objected and they finally decided to call only
one im re witness to clear up, as they put it,
any doubt that might exist in regard to the
deleiidaut's n spousibility for the alleged
libel.
The mily witness called by the defence
was Mr. A. R Tolmie who waB put in the
box to introduce copies of Tub Daily Tele
gkam of u o 15th and 18th of March the
fiist containing an article headed "Bottom's
Bi-Monthly Bray" and thesecoud the copies
of the letter and apology received from
Messrs. Mclnnes k Mclnnes and The Telegram's reply thereto.
Tbe plaintiff's having nothing new to add
to the closing arguments made on the occasion of the last hearing, when it was asked
that the defeudent get down on his marrow
hones or be turned over to Her Majesty the
Queen for safekeeping until the next assizes.
Mr. E. M, Yarwood made an able reply
on behalf of the defendent.
Mr. Yarwood showed conclusively that
there was no necessity for an apology from
the defeudent to the plaintiffs, and that in
regard to the inuendo it was impossibly
fur the plaintiffs to put the construction
up n the article complained of which they
sought lo do, and that it was in u .> way
libellous. The whole affair, he said, was
the outcome of a political controversy be-
tweeu two papers of opposite party leanings,
and not meant for the plaintiffs or intended
to bring them into public hatred or disgrace.
As a matter of fact The Telegram itself in
the issue of the 18th of March stated clearly
that it was absurd to say that the plaintiff's
or auy other members ot the Reform Club
were concerned in the outrage at Welling
ton. He also pointed out that in any case
the plaintiffs had failed to establish the
defendant's responsibility for the article in
question, aud they had also failed to prove
that there had not been any other organization formed in that neighborhood about the
tune of the explosion. In fact this would
be impossible tor them to do. The plaintiff's
sought to identify the arcicle as applied to
their club because it referred to unarctiy
and Sunday meetings, and at the same bim)
put in evidence to Bhow that tbey had no
such connections aud as a matter of fact
no ' ue believed he society had such leanings He c ted many cases In bear out his
contentions and closed by askn g that the
case be dismissed as no judge would think
of allowing such a c ise to go before a jury.
He also referred to the remarks of Solicitor
Mclunes iu reference to the defendant because he had refused to give evidence or
make any statement in regard to the case
and pointed out that they had usurped their
privileges in the matter.
His Worship assured Mr. Yarwood that
the remarks complained of would have no
weight with him and then asked tbe plaintiffs what they wanted.
The plaintiff's said that they would, as
before, insist on the committal of the defeudent unless a fail and ample apology
were made at miue.
His Worship then reviewed the evidenoe
and the contentions of the prosecution. He
said that were he to dismiss the case, the
plaintiffs could appear before the Grand
Jury aud lay a new informal ion. As under
the new code the decision would carry
costs and as the plaintiffs would
perhaps want to exercise their privileges and
press their case in a higher court, he would
place the onus of furl her proceedings upon
them. He would not commit the plaintiff,
but would hold him with oue other surety
in $500 to appear before the grand jury if
called upon to do so to auswer to any indictment the plaintiffs might prefer against
him.
He would also ask the plaintiffs to give a
bond for $500 as a guarantee that they
would appear to prosecute.
The prosecution squirmed  pretty hard at
this turn of events,  and contended that the
responsibility for further proceedings should
reBi  with  the Crown.    His  Worship said
every   tub should stand on its own bottom,
aud adjourned till next Monday at 2 o'clock
to permit both parties to complete their
bonds.

New York, April 17.���The Duke of
Portland has leased the minerals under an
area of 7,000 acres of hia estate to the
Huckmill Colliery company. A plant is being put in to raise 3,000 tons per day with
two shifts. The coal, which is some of the

The newest thing for racing is proposed
by the Tiffin Club. As its name imports, its
object is to provide luncheon in marquees at
Ascot, Goodwood and Henley-on-Thames
duriug the races and the regatta week, also
on the occasion of the Universities and Eton
and Harrow matches. The prospectus says
that smaller buffets will be provided at Epsom and Derby week, at Doncaster, San-
down and Kempton on the Eclipse and
Jubilee days, and at other places, if members desire it.
Queen Victoria Reducing Expenses,
The Queen has decided to give up the
royal stud at Hampton Court, and the whole
stock is to be sold off during the summer.
The abolition of this stud was recommended
by a select committee. Lord Cross, Sir
Reginald Welby, Sir Henry Ponsonby and
the late Loid Sydney were appointed by the
Queen a few years ago to investigate the expenses of the royal household with a view to
carrying out aB many economical reforms as
were found advisable. The breaking up of
the Hampton Court stud is probably a preliminary step to the abolition of the stag-
hounds.
Royal Wedding Arrangements.
The Queen arrived in Coburg Monday
evening, after a journey of eighteen hours
from Florence. She will reside at Epren-
burg Palace for about a wek and after tbe
wedding day and the departure of tbe guests
Her Majesty is to make several excursions
in the neighborhood, including a trip to
Schlass Altensein, the romantic seat of the
Duke of Saxe Meiningeu, in the Thuringan
forest. The ceremonial of the wedding on
Thursday has been very difficult to arrange
and the program drawn up at Coburg was
considerably altered by the Queen when
sent to her at Florence. The marriage
settlements have been signed. The arrangements both for the invited company and for
the personages who have to walk in the
procession are very much the same as at the
Duke of York's wedding last year.
"HARD TIMES HOP.
The Young Ladles of Nanaimo Achieve
Great Success.
The "Hard Times Hop" given last night
by the young ladies of Nanaimo at S. Paul's
Institute Hall was an unqualified success.
From first to last the young ladies denied
themselves alt male aid or help, and did all
the decorations and preparations themselves. An excellent supper and refreshments were provided, wherewith to keep
the dancing up in unflagging style till a late
hour. Henna' orchestra provided the music
and gave every satisfaction. The hall was
tastefully decorated, and bore evidence of
much care and labor on the part of the
young ladies. The stage was arranged at a
foyer where those not dancing could lounge
and view the pretty scene.
The   young   ladies   who    provided   this
charming entertainment were the following:

The bachelor's felt, that notwithstanding
the success of their dance, the young ladies
had managed better than they. Consequently they awarded the palm of victory to Miss
Roe and her co-laborera.

NANAIMO, B. C��� WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 1894.
An Easier Way Out of It.
Mrs. Pigg, a very charming and vivaci-
oious widow, called recently on a legal
friend of hers to oonBult him on a matter of
interest to her.
"You know, sir," she said to him. "that
when the late Mr. Pigg died he left me all
his fortune, much to my satisfaction, of
course, but he handicapped me with the
name of  Pigg,  which I muat Bay I don't
like"
"Well," ventured the attorney. "I presume a handsome woman isn't especially
complimented by being left a Pigg."
"I should say not," she laughed. "Now,
what I came to aee you about was whether
or not I must apply to the legislature to get
it changed."
"Um���er," he hesitated, as if wrestling
with a great legal problem, "um���er���yes;
but an easier way is to apply to a parson,
and I'll pay all the expensea myself."
It was audden, but the widow ia never
caught napping, and she appointed that
evening for another consultation.
 ���	
Not all a Bed of Roses.
"I waB once in a big store in Salt Lake
City," remarked a woman who had crossed
the continent not less than twelve times,
"when a man came in and asked the proprietor for seven seal skin Backa.
"'What atyle of sacks?' inquired the
proprietor, very properly.
" 'I don't care what style,' retorted the
purchaser, with some savageness, 'just ao
they're all exactly alike. There mustn't be
one inch more sealskin on one than another,
and mustn't be a hair's breadth difference in
their lengih, width and quality, or my seven
wives will make it hot for me at home.
Understand, I don't care about the fit or
anything else. You send up seven sealskin
sacks that are exactly alike���that's the
main point.'
"From which," oonc'uded the woman, "it
would seem that polygamy was not altogether the bed of roses that the Mormon's
would have us to believe."
The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Telegram-
"Did you ever hear ot a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live iu
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down ami talk with ihe
publisher about it. afterwards, and ask him
why it is that be can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a 1* c.l patronnge, or have
his paper as free fiom deadhead or objectionable advertisement? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanuimo."
Yes You Do.

Manager Daily Telegram.
WE NEED MONEY.
Up to the present we have not pressed
many of our subscribers who, like many
others felt the pressure of the prevailing
hard times, but the time has arrived when
we must have lhe amount due us We
hope this notion will be sufficient, and t-iat
subscribers and others indebted to The
Telegram, either for subscription or on
account of printing and advertising, will
settle at once.
THE OUT-LOOK.
The News Advertiser of Vancouver is trying with praiseworthy zeal to inspire itB
party with oourage. This we Bay is praiseworthy, for just now both branches of tho
Opposition have fallen on evil days politically, and are consequently "down in the
mouth" to a distressing degree. It is,
therefore, a work of charity and consequently praiseworthy to try and cheer them up a
bit. The ���JTeu/s-.ddi.'eeriltse'r tells them that
the outlook is promising, and enters into
what it is pleased to call an investigation to
prove it. Our solemn contemporary iB not
usually regarded as a comic journal, but its
eo-called investigation is nevertheless one of
the most funny productions which we have
seen publish* d for some time. 1* commences
with the prefatory statemeut that neither in
1886 nor in 1890 were the prospects of the
Opposition so bright as they are at the present time. Nothing in the world, we are
assured, but proper organization and energetic efforts on the part of the electors are
needed to overturn the present Government.
This seems marvellously like the statement
of a platitude, but we suppose it will be
thankfully accepted by a dispirited Opposition in default of something better. Of
course if the electors all decide to vote
againat the Government it will not require
much energy or even organization on their
part to defeat it, and to place the Opposition triumphantly in power, but what prospect is there that they will do anything of
the sort, and why should they do it?
As to the first of these questions we are
told that in 1890 Mr. Robson was returned
with a majority of five in a Legislature of 33
membera. The Opposition and Independents, it seems, together numbered 14, who
were returned by the following constituencies: Victoria, thtee; Nanaimo oity, one;
Nanaimo District, two; New Westminster
oity, one; Westminster District, three; Yale,
one; West Kootenay, one. Hence, it up.
pears, that the Island returned six, and the
Mainland eight members who were not
pledged supporters of Mr. Robson. What
ia the outlook to-day, according to the
News-Advertiser scribe, the self-appointed
leader of the Independent branch of the
-Opposition? We have still a House of 33
members, the Redistribution Bill has not
altered that. Victoria city, Mr. Cotton
assures us, is still dead against the Government, and may be counted on to return three
members of the Opposition. Nanaimo city
and district, he also tells us, will in all probability return three more; but with laudable
moderation he admits that perhaps
one Government supporter may be returned
by reason of what he calls the gerrymander.
Thia makes five aupportera of the Opposition, whom the News-Advertiser claims the
Island will be sure to return without fail.
On the Mainland, Mr. Cotton affirms, nothing but intense stupidity or divided councils
can wrest from the Opposition a single seat
of the eight which under the new system
are apportioned between Vancouver and
New Westminster cities aud New Westminster distriot. Vale also, we are assured,
which   hitherto   only sent   one Opposition
member, will now send two, and two of the
three membera returned by the Kootenay
divisions will also be on the aame Bide.
So at least we are told by the Mainland
organ of the Independent branch of the Opposition. Thia if realized will give the Opposition 17 votes to 16 for the Government,
a dear majority of one. But Mr. Cotton
tells them that they muat not be content
with thiB, that they must have il at least.
The other five seats which they are to win
in some way not yet explained are Lillooet
and Cariboo on the Mainland and Esquimalt, the Victoria districts, Cowichan and
Comox on the Island. These, we believe,
make more than five Beats, but a trifle of
oue or two makes no practical difference
when the Opposition is on the point of winning so sweeping a victory as the Ntws-Ad-
vertiser described in its issue of Sunday last.
The Mainland organ of the Independent
Oppositionists is plainly indulging itself in
the amusement of counting its chickens before they are hatched, proverbially a risky
business. But it should not make itself too
ridiculous in its anxiety to keep up the
courage of itB party. There is not the least
prospect that the city of Victoria will return three supporters of the Opposition or
even two. The prospects on the contrary
are that the provincial capital will return
four supporters of the Government. The
citizens of Victoria are sick of Beavenism,
as well they may be, and we think the
next elections will demonstrate the fact.
Then it iB altogether absurd to
count on Nanaimo city and district returning three opponents of the
Government. The city and district are far
more likely to return three supporters of
the Government. We have triid ao-called
Independent members in this locality, and
found them grievously wanting. The city
and district might almost as well not have
been represented in the last Parliament, for
all the members of either accomplished.
We are confident that the city and district
also will try a change next time. At all
exents no change that can be made will
be one for the worae. It is also absolutely certain that Vancouver and New-
Westminster cities and New Westminster
district will not be represented in the next
Assembly by eight supporters of the Opposition. If Messrs. Cotton and Brown succeed in getting themselves returned, it is
about as much as they can expect,
and they will have reason to con
siiler themselves fortunate if they are
elected, even by reduced majorities Iu
point, of faot everyone is lired ol the prosing
of the oue in his newspaper, and the blatant
demagoguism of the other in Ihe House and
<ut ol it.
We need not follow the absurd prognostications of the Mainland organ of tbe Opposition further. There is not the smallest
probability that they will be verified. Yale
will not return two members of the Opposition, nor the Kootenay divisions either.
And why should they? The people of
British Columbia are not altogether fools,
and every man of sense in the Province
knows that the Opposition is not fit to be
entrusted with the government of the oountry. Mr. Beaven proved himself the worst
mayor Victoria has had for many years.
What sort of a premier would he make? Or
if Mr. Beaven were shunted, what aort of
premier would Mr. Brown or Mr. Cotton
make? In fact the Opposition leaders are
one and all not simply ineligible, but absolutely impossible aa membera of any Government. Therefore the present ministry,
if for no other reason, must be supported,
for between them and the leaders of the
Opposition there is absolutely no choice and
no comparison. Hence men of sense in the
Province at large will support the existing
administration in the present crisis of affairs,
and relegate the Opposition to the only
business it is capable of performing satisfactorily, the business of finding fault.

(Extract from "Colonist," April 13.)
The deputation of Kaslo oitizens and civio
officials who arrived in the city aeveral days
ago with the objeot of interviewing the
Government in respect to the Kaslo and
Slocan railway���asking that it be put on
as favorable footing as the Nakusp and
Slocan���returned home this morning, evidently satisfied with the outcome of their
interviews with Premier Davie and his
colleagues. The members of the deputation
were much pleased with their courteous
reception and the distinct disposition shown
by the Government to deal fairly and
squarely with them. The amendment to
the Railway Companies' Aot, introduced by
the Government and whioh has just become
law, ia pronounced entirely satisfactory,
and construction will now proceed at once.
When the delegates left Kaslo the people
there were waiting for the assurance that
the railway was a "sure go" j now that,
they have received the welcome news, the
burnt distriot will be immediately rebuilt,
much finer structures in every way replacing those destroyed by the fire of a few
weeks ago. NANAIMO, B. (!., WEDVES<>AY, APRIL 18. 1894.
