NUMBER 31
fails fritish ffiolumbian
Tkanday (nalag, February ia. MH.
The fellow who commits larceny,
or has the audacity to rob a man on
the street in open daylight is, when
caught, forthwith shackled and
handouffed, and' sent across the
boundary lines to tlio" scene of his
crimes, but the luxurious Enos, and
men of that ilk, from either country,
are allowed to flaunt their ill-gotten
gains in the faces of honest people
with all the recklessness of a Texan
cow-boy, and none dare to make
him or them afraid. This should
not be. * * * Let us have free
trade between the two powers, in
the matter of criminals at all events;
let neither Canada nor the United
States hold out hope of protection
to the perpetrator of any crime
punishable by law on the statute
books of either country, Let the
guilty Iind no harbor of refuge under the Stars and Stripes nor under
the Union Jack.—Chatham Planet.
The final, estimates of the cereal
crops of the United States, just
oompleted by the department of
agriculture for 1886, give the yield
of wheat at 457,218,000 bushels;
oon 1,665,441,000 bushels, and
oats 624,134,000 bushels. The
yield of wheat is smaller than in
any year since 1879, when accurate
returns were first obtained, excepting 1881, 1883, and 1885. The
corn crop also falls behind the record of those years with the exception of 1881,1882, and 1883; but
the yield uf oats is in excess of any
year except 1885. The aggregate
yield of the three crops is greater
than any years except 1884 and
1885. The money value of these
crops makes a comparatively bad
showing, that of wheat being $314,-
226,020, corn $610,311,000, and
oats 1186,136,930. These are the
values in the localities where the
crops were raised. For wheat the
value is the lowest in eight years
exoept 1885,.and for corn it is the
lowest without exception, Oats,
however, show a greater value than
for any preceding year oxcept 1881
and 1883. . The greatest falling off
in prices has beep in wheat, the
value of corn and oats remaining
comparatively steady. These figures
show bow hotter seasons in Europe
and the increase of the Indian crop
have pulled down the price of wheat.
S. F. Bulletin.
The final triumph of the Liberals
in Quebec cannot fail to be a serious
blow to Sir John Macdonald. Not
only does it throw all the patron
age and influence into the hands of
his opponents, but'it presents hiin
as beaten whero he had hitherto
commanded success, nnd where to
be believed to command success is
everything. A defeated party in
the French province is not like the
Old Guard on th* evening of Waterloo. It seems also as if the ship of
Dominion Conservatism is likely to
•utter moro than was supposed from
th* wash of the storm in whieh the
barque of Ontario Conservatism was
wreaked. The Roman Catholic
hierarchy has nimbly transferred its
support (rom the winning side in
tha province to what it deems to be
the winning side in the Dominion;
but the notice, it appears, is too
short for some of the laity, who are
likely to vote now as chey voted six
week. ago. A sens* of increased
peril has certainly been creeping
over th* Conservative* within the
Ust few days, and the admission
that the contest will be close ia now
htard from Conservative lips. Sir
John appeals to his phalanx of protected manufacturers, and in them
probably he may confide. True,
the Liberals have accepted the N.
P., but it is with a wry face, and
on th* somewhat hollow pretext
that the increased expenditure has
rendered the tariff necessary for
revenue purposes, whereas protection is a sacrifice of revenue. Tbe
manufacturers, and all whom they
may influence, will prefer to adhere
to the author of their tariff', unless
it should appear to them that victory has left hh standard, in wliich
aaso they may think it wiae to con
ciliate tbe coming powers. Protectionism has its political as well as
It* economical consequences. It
calls into existence a powerful and
compact body ol capitalists, dependant on state support, ahd ready to
maintain in power any government
whioh will continue that support
without reference to other questions
or to the general welfare of the
nation. There can be no shadow
of doubt that political purity, at all
events, is on the side of a revenue
taritT.-W. Week.

Tkanday Evealag, February 10, IW.
We hopo some person will introduce n UU into the local legislature
thia session amending tin: laws relating to the practice of luw and
medicine in this provinco, Whilo
members of parliament nre liberally
denouncing railway monopolies and
devising means whereby tho poople
may escape from their oppressive
exactions, they have themselves deliberately established a monopoly in
the. two professions named.
According to the last census
there were in this province 441,225
acres of occupied land, and 217,983,-
040 unoccupied. There is, therefore, room enough yet lor a considerable increase to our population. A
large proportion of our territory is,
of course, unlit for settlement.
Oar "seas of mountains" present
insuperable barriers to agricultural
operations, although they are rich
enough -in the precious metals to
sustain a - large mining population.
But millions of people could tind
comfortable homes and prosperous
fields in our agricultural regions still
unoccupied.? But the prospects of
development in the interior arc
most intimately bound up with
quartz mining, an industry which
premises to become very large, profitable and permanent. This industry is engaging public attention
now to an extent which gives encouragement to the belief that it
will come to be of first importance.
We are probably on the verge of a
great mining boom.
It seems to be the universal opiti
ion of those who. attended the colonial exhibition held at London last
year that the affair was a remarkable Buccess. The evidences of
valuable colonial resources and of
advancement in the arts and sciences
surprised everybody. In the old
country many people to this day
look upon colonists us the Romans
did in the days of the empire. Then
the belief prevailed that Rome only
was civilized, while all the world
beside was barbarian. But the colonial exhibition has done much to
disabuse the British people's minds
of this delusion. They find the colonies possessed of enormous resources
developed. and undeveloped, and far
ahead of themselves in their knowledge of .some of the mechanical
arte, the result ought to be greatly
beneficial to the colonies, because it
is almost certain .to bring out from
the old country both capital and
population,' both ■ of which f would
find a much niort favorable field in
such a oountry as Canada.
A cablegram to the New York
Star states that a compromise 1ms
been arranged among British politi
cal patties looking to united action
on the home rule matter, Mr. Gladstone, ii is said, has made some con
cessions for the purpose of regaining the support of Chamberlain,
and it is said that the result of this
will be a motion in the house affirming the principle of home rule. It
is proposed to unite the whole Liberal party in a motion giving precedence to the agrarian question.
If thii gets the support of the Por-
neUites, the next step will be to da
dare the expediency of home rule,
and on '.tliis it is believed the government can be easily defeated.
Mr. Gladstone will theu take ollice
and go the country with a comprehensive scheme of Liberal measures
for England and Scotland, omitting
Irish 'homo .rule. This is expected
to unite thoroughly the whole Liberal party. Gladstone will then
declare the expediency of home rule
and retire from office, leaving the
younger members to tight it out on
that line....
The people of  Vancouver have
laid out a very extensive programme
for the current year, and we are not
aure but their example might be to
some extent; followed with profit by
the people of this oity.   The expenditures, now   determined  upon in
Vancouver amount to' the sum of
nearly $200,000.' This sum, or most
of it, wilfhave to be borrowed; bul
the pernio very justly olaim that
those who come afterwards should
be made to bear a fair share of the
cost of putting the city on a proper
footing.    ;Bo large: an expenditure
on publk! improvements will make
• great change in the appearance of
tha  now oity; but if the loan is
spread' oittt a number of years, the
cost maybe kept within reasonable
limits.:   We have already suggested
that It', would be in the interest of
New 'Westminster to undertake a
ooMideribie  amount  of   improve-
ments this rear. ' We' shall not ad

General Impressions
FROM A TRIP ABROAD.
Mr. Turner Narrates n Short Account
of Ills .Itiiirney.
George Turner, of this city, who
haa recently returned from England,
gave to tho Columbian a short account of hia trip thid morning. The
journey froin thu city to Liverpool
occupied but fourteen days. On his
arrival in Englnud ho noted mnny
changes since he had been thero be-
foru, 28 years ago, especially in the
rail ways nud means uf travel. The
comfort and accommodation supplied
the putilie by such corporations hnd
greatly increased. He attended the
closing of thu Colonial Exhibition,aud
reports thnt tho Caiuiiliau exhibits,
especially of fruit nud timber, nstcn-
jshed the English, who, heretofore,
had no conception of the progress and
improvement a made by Camilla of late
years.- Tho machinery of our provinces was equal to if uot better than
that of. Grent Britain. The change
that England hus undorgouu in latu
yoars is wonderful. Small country
towns have developed into grent cities
and new industiios have sprung up in
overy quarter.
LONUON  HAS  DOUBLED  ITS SIZE.
Agitations aro uow in progress for the
benefit of its poor, which, though
vastly overestimated, is still much in
need of help and improvement. During his sojourn thero Lord Churchill
resigned, which caused quite a oensa-
tion. The people in goneral con
dmmiod Churchill for hia rash act.
There is also a popular dislike against
Gla<Utoiie and hia home ruin policy.
M iny blame the election crisis as tlm
cause of the general dullness iu trade
whicli prevails in and nbout London
uf latu. Litely, however, it hns been
improving. Ho thinks a largo emigration in theculon.es will tnku place
iu thu near future, hoth by runson of
the high estimation in which Canada
and Australia aro regarded and on account of the great overplus of capital
and population which is at present in
tho country. He expresses himself of
the opinion that tho mail service
BKTWKHN HALIFAX AND OHKAT BRITAIN
could bo vastly improved, the return
trip ou water occupying 12 days, while
the lines from New York mnko the
distance in half tho time. Ou Iub arrival m Quebec he found the temperature about 40 degrees below zero,
whilo tlie snow varied frum a depth of
from three to four feot on tho ground.
He found the popular fueling in favor
of thu Liberal government both in
that nrovinoo and in the Northwest,
especially in the latter provinco,
where tfie people complain bitterly of
the railway monopoly, which thev at
tribute to tho presont premier. With
regard to the O. P. R. ho was favorably impressod. Tho rolling stock of
the company was good and the road
stood high in thu
ESTIMATION   OF   ENGLISH  OAl'ITAI-WTH,
many of whom aro already buying
largo amounts of the stuck. The officials of the r.iad ho also found courteous and obliging, especially on the
prairio division, where, during a delay
hy snowstormt they allowed tho pas*
Buugors tho freo use of the Pullman
enrs. Tho mountain division was a
magnificent piece of ongineoritu* and
cups'truotion, and whim a few mure
snowfllmds have been built he thinks
there will be no longer any delay
caused by snowstorms and slides.

Fishery Retaliation.
An^Ottawa dispatch gives the follow
ing statement of au interview with Sir
John Macdonald on the matter, Sir
John said: "The news that tho United
States senate passed the Edmunds bill
providing for so-called retaliation
againBt Canada, becauso the fisheries
treaty has been rigidly enforced, is
not a surprise to me. I regret very
much that congress has gone so fnr. I
feel confident that tliere is somo misapprehension in tho United States.
Here in Canada wo wish peaco and
harmony with our neighbors across
tho bordor. We havo our fishing
treaty, which waB framed by tho representatives of Great Britain and tho
United States in 1818. We consider
that wo liavo only acted as thut trenty
considers we may. Tho people of tho
United States ought to be willing to
allow us tho treaty rights which their
own representatives granted. Tho
Dominion government lias stood on
tho provisions of the treaty, and it has
endeavored to carry thom out in harmony with justice and fairness. Wo
would be very glad to havu an understanding in rcgnrd to tho fisheries.
Wo aro willing io havo a reciprocity
treaty re-enacted in place of tlto former
ono, which was cancelled, I fear, becauso of the feoliug against Great Britain arising out of tho Alabama depredations. Canada will enter into an
arrangement fora renewal of thu privilege of fishing in uur waters, and for
American fishermen to obtain supplies,
bait and tranship fish. Wo liavo asked for a commission to consider tho
subject. Failing in obtaining a commission even to considor the questions
involved, Canada has, tu tho best of
her ability, protected horself."

Thero, now, we'ro married, and I
