PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
pil' Monday (Mar. 14) Hon. Mr.
Rokson, on rising to deliver his
budget speech, said' that as tlio
flnanoe minister last year had gono
so fully into the matter of provincial finances, ho need refer very little ■ to the past, aud would coufiiio
his remarks to the period that hud
since elapsed. During the last fiscal year the expenditure bad been
$772,211 and the receipts $592,863,
showing a .difference of $189,348.
For tho- fStiftiikit of. the current
fiscul year the reoelpts had been
$221,821 and tlie expenditure $358,-
042, leaving a deficit of $136,221.
At the end of the present fiscal
year tho expenditure will probably
have exceeded the revenue by $323,-
728, including the overdraft at the
bank. He might remind the house
that if the government had availed
itself of the power conferred by the
legislature, to negotiate a loan of
$300,000 there would be practically
no deficiency to provide for at the
end of the year, but it was thought
best to cover current expenses by
temporary accommodation at the
bank. In tlie estimates for tho
coming fiscal year the ordinary receipts have been set down at $194,
023 less than the estimated expenditures. Add to this the anticipated
overdraft on the 30th of next June
and there would be a deficit of $517,-
763 to provide for on the 30th Juno
1888. This is a fraction over half
the loan which it is proposed to ask.
Speaking of the loan ho said it was
proposed to ask power to borrow
$1,000,000, one half to be taken
now, and subscribers being bound to
take the balance when required.
Tlie reason why it was proposed to
place the whole loan now was this:
At present tho credit of the province is good, and money can be got
in the English mnrket on very favorable terms. But no one could tell
how much or how soon .these conditions would be changed. If n wnr
should take place in Europe, a' loan
would be out of the question. The
present wns the time, therefore, for
securing a loan. Our credit was
good. Tho revenues of the prov-
ince were expanding, although tbe
demand for large expenditures on
necessary public works of n solid
and reproductive character of increasing. This was quite natural.
As yet. wo wore but planting the
seeds of future revenue and prosperity, and if we failed to plant we
eould not reap. To show the steady
increase of revenues he might mention that during the 5 years since
1882, the period covered by tho
present administration, the assessed
value of real property had increased
nearly 300 per cent, personal property had doubled, income had nearly
doubled, and the wild land tax hnd
increased about.50 per cent, In
order to meet the increased charge
on! the revenue growing out of the
proposed loan, it was proposed to
increase slightly .the rate of taxation as follows: Real property tax
from J- to I of one per cent,, personal property from 1-5 to J, wild
land tax from 5 cts. to 7} cts. per
acre. These increases-would yiold
an addition to tho revenue of $37,-
833 per annum on the present assessment This would not meet the
expenses of the new loan at first,
but when spread over the whole
period of 30 years it would be ample.
A million loan bearing 5 per cent.,
floated at par (and it was almost
certain to command a premium) and
spread over 30 years would cost the
province exactly $17,629 per annum
for the whole term by investing the
sinking fund at 4 percent One
happy feature of the increased taxation was that it would not fall
upon the poorer classes at all but on
those who were able to bear it, if,
Indeed, a tax as light as a feather
could be a burden to any one. It
may be that bouio members were
opposed to borrowing on any terms,
but preferred to let the expenditure-
be measured by the revenue; but he
oould'not believe that any intelligent person would wish to return to
the policy of cheese-paring pursued
by the former administration, the
statesmanship of whioh consisted
solely ia making receipts and expenditure! meet. The result of that
policy had beon stagnation and neglect, ruin and decay in tho roads,
bridges aiid publio buildings. The
policies of tlie two administrations
might be illustrated by two farmers
who began on equal terms. One
pursued a niggardly policy, refusing
to spend anything that could possibly be avoided: the other showed
more enterprise, providing himself
with ample machinery and implements for the most successful cultivation of his farm. It needed no
prophetic vision to foretell that the
enterprising farmer would boat his
parsimonious neighbor very speedily
in the nifn foi' obihpetence. Tho
same principle hold good in ooin-
mercm! [nirsutts und ^'statecraft.
Theru weru times and circumstances
when it \v» i prudent to borrow, and
he bolievt'd tliis province was now
in that position. It Was the only
way in which the demands pressing
upon us could be met. British Columbia was, on '(Mount of its immense area, geographical position
and varied and immense resource,
entitled to rank, mnd it would undoubtedly soon rank, ns the most
important, provinco of the Dominion, und it remained for the house
to devise such wise and liberal
measures as would push it on to its
true destinv.

New York, Mar. 15.--A special
from Ottawa. Ont., says: The fisheries
department havo completed their plan
of campaign for tho coming season and
it waB submitted to tlio cabinet council last evoning. After a full discussion it wus adopted. With ret-nrd to
it Sir John Macdonald suid: "Tho protective fleet will bo even mora efficient
than Inat yenr nnd the Yankees that
succeed ill trespassing within tho 3-
mile limit without lonlostition will
linve to bo commanded by ail uncommonly cunning old sen-dog."
THE WAR Ol-Ot'D.
New York, Mnr. 15. — The Post's
London spuoiul snys: The public nre
badly informed here <if the preparations of Austria and Germany Jnr immediate wnr. A correspondent just
arrived from Cracow states that 10,000
men aro engaged night and day in
fortifying thnt place. Austria's preparations for war are herculean, but
late. Gormatiy, on the other hand, is
prepared to start a campaign to morrow. Aimy contracts nre signed, officers have sealed marching orders, and
the expectation of immediate war is
almost universal. Her state of roadi
ness is perfect, with not a gaitw button wanting to tho equipment of the
army. Business is completely suspended. Commercial rotations have
been so much flustered that opinion
favors immediate release from the tension.   In Germany, notwithstanding
rumors of probable violation of Belgian territory, the feeling ii thst tlw
campaign will be conducted, as In
1800, on tbo Alsace-Lorraine frontier.
France is not so ready for war aa Germany will be. It is thoroughly understood that if war breaks it will be
begun in the west of Europe by Oar-
many for tactical and diplomatic reasons, to neutralize France in the event
of an Austria-Russian conflict.

en tho string, which wu connected

accomplice were seised: It wss fonnd
that they lived together in a lodging
house in the suburbs of the eity. The
police visited this house and discovered a quantity of explosives and a
number of revolutionary pamphlets.

Quartz Mining.
The air everywtioreiiiullof excitement on the question of quartz
mining in British Oolumbia. Hon
are eagerly searching everywhere
for information, and from various
quarters lunips of .pch looking gold
quartz aro boing produced. That
this country is immensely wealthy
iu gold and silver quartz no one
acquainted, with the history of its
mining operations can doubt.
Through it runs, the auriferous bolt
that has yielded suoh fabulous
wealth in California and is now
yielding enormously ih Alaska,
where thc Treadwell initio is likely
to become a second Comstock. The
excitement over British Columbia
quartz is not by any means cou-
iined to this province. In Washington Territory, Oregon, California,
and Nevada, men who washed the
precious metal out of the banks of
the Fraser from 1808 to 1862 are
looking eagerly for new developments. There are many thousands
of these men still living, aud tho
first real.development of quartz
mining in this province will bring
thousands of them back to our
shores.
Railway Disallowance.
In his last issue our cotemporary
of the Vancouver Herald returns
to the question of federal disallowance of provincial railway charters,
aud manages, as usual, to get away
very far from the point at issuo.
The discussion originally sprang
trom our cotemporary's criticism of
Mr. Trapp's address wherein it was
stated that it was through the inftu
ence ot the C. P. R. that tho Sow
Westminster Southern Kailway
charter had been disallowed. It
seemed to us that we had abundantly established the correctness of that
assertion by referring to the letter
from the railway; department in
answer to the New Westminster
Board of Trade. Iu that letter it
was stated explicitly that the reason
of the disallowance wns the opinion
of the 0. P. It. direotors that the
proposed railway might interfere
with the business of the Canadian
road. There does not seem to be
room after ihat to doubt what motive prompted disallowance. We
have also advanced the view that
the monopoly clause of the 0. P. 11.
agreement oould not be binding on
British Oolumbia or any other provinoe organised under a constitution
nt the time the agreement was made.
This is clear enough from the British North America Act, and from
the wording of the monopoly clause
itself which carefully provides that
in the formation of any new provinces this clause shall be made it
part of (heir constitution: If it
had the force of jivw.jn other provinces without their consent, surely
this provision would have been
wholly unnecessary. It follows,
therefore, that the government
availed itself of the power contained in the clause of the constitutional act permitting' it to veto lines
going to the boundary and vetoed
our charter becauso advised to do so
by the 0,'P. R. authorities. All
provincial legislation of this kind is
subject to federal veto; but it is
hardly possible to suppose that the
B. N. A. ait ewer supposed that the
right of disallowance would be
exercised except where legislation
was clearly contrary to the public
good or calculated to conflict with
federal interests. But if the mo
nopoly clause shut out from Manitoba and British Columbia the right
to charter and construct railways
to the international boundary, what
does our, cotemporary make of. llio
following: extract from a speech de-
livered in the house of commons by
Sir Charles Tupper (who wus then
minister of railways) in 1884?
Speaking on this point Sir Charles
■aid: ''I am glad to be able to state
to the Iiouse thnt * * * when the
line is constructed i north of Lake
Superior the government fool it will
nit be incumbent upon thom to
preserve the position they havo
hitherto felt bound to preserve, that
of refusing to consent to tho con
■traction of lines within the province of Manitoba connecting it with
American railway! to the south."
Thii is a distinct promise made by
a minister on tlie floor of the house
in 1884, and yet we. are told in 1886
that a charter from this city to
Washington Territory cannot be
permitted because it may interfere
with the monopoly of, the Ct. P, K.
Tha government of Mr. Mackenzie
had began the construction of the
0, P. K. as ft government work, and
its policy,,, was to prevent the con-
atruetion of competing lines to the
•oath. In: the speech from which
tbe above extract is taken Sir
Charles mentions that in this res-
pact hia (JMremraient has simply
adopted MW ft****, the policy pur
sued by (to predecessor, and it is
worth vbfle to notice that this polio-* wm taken before the 0. P. R.

St. Louis, Mar. 14.—Th.
lican Ibis morning ssys that a railway
iidioial whoso conneoiion with theNew
York snd Boston end ul certsin trans-
Mississippi roads gifos him a mutt «■
cellent opportunity to know what is
going on behind the' curtain, said last
night: "Noone need' be surprised
when the smoke ol the B. tt 0. deal
claariaway if the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe is found to be the owner." He laid it wat no secret that the
Atohison uaed ita influence in Garret's
favor when the Arthur bill was pending, and that the success of that measure wat due largely to Ihe Atchison's
effort.   It was asserted by thit gentle*
i man that negotiations had been pending between Atchison and Baltimore
iifHcialt more than aix months, and that
, the hitch in the deal last week waa
wholly due to the  Gould party, who
, wanted to defeat the deal, because the
Missouri Paoifio did not like the idea
of its most powerful and energetic
rival having control of a continuous
line from ocean to oceau. The Atchison plan, it seems, is toteoure tbe B.
| and 0. through the Richmond Terminal Oo., soil can perfect itt plana
[    for reaching Staten Island.   The con-
I tractors are pledged to have the Chicago extension of the . Atchison completed by 1888.   There it a link be-
' tween Philadelphia and tbe bridge tn
cover, whioh could very easily be done
by the time Chicago it reached from
the west, when the Atchison would
have a continuous line of its own between San Francisco aud New York,
much shorter than any other transcontinental route.

TNE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(•uxt-ixxsis.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
the Couwiiiias Newspaper anil
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to he known as the
"British Colombian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern' has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the Uritish Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tlie object of
the new compnny is to continue the publication of the British Comwiua-. newspaper ami carry on a geueral printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
tlioso whoso individual interest it will be
to promoto tlio development, especially
of the Mainland. Tliere. will bo no
slackening of the energy hitherto ills*
played in tlio management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving fnll valuo for thtir money.
The Ciim'muun will continue to be entirely independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of snch schemes aa
may bo considered tn tlio publio Interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, thb book nnd
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own namo and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a daily newspaper
should lie maintained in this oity, and
the new company asks for public patronage on tho ground that It Is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promoto the
public welfare. It asks that the Cm-
limit as be judged on its own, merits and
supported only so long as Ita policy Is
consistent with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts duo tho concern must be settled
without delay ao that the books of the
former company may be adjusted, and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

A H0ME~C0MPANY,
Thii. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Roeurtiy offered to policy holders Is
unimrpiissed by auy Company doing buni-
ncsK tn Canada,
It htw no schemeso! Insurance, imt Hie
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as to then-contracts.
Its statements to the public can lie readily understood, Its cash statement show*
Ing overy item of income and how expended.
Its position Is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation In which every Item
of liability is Included.
Its progress hns been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada,
rt-spolioieguro Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfelLible after two years'
existence.
Its profit** aro distributed upon an equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other olass, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Parliamentary Language.
Tlie Times endeavors to excuse its
friends in the opposition for their unseemly language in discussing Mr. Orr's
resolution ou Thursday last. It says
their language was "more parliamentary "than that used by other members.
Now, as wo have frequently had occasion to show up what our cotemporary's idea of journalistic language ib,
let us sou what ho calls "parliamentary." A fow of the choice epithets
used during the debate referred to
wero taken down by onr reporter and
among them wo hnd the following
credited to one of the lights of the
opposition: "Damned," "lie," "liar,"
"blackguard," "thief," "pig," "grunt,"
'.'squeal," eto. Thoso are no doubt
choice morsels to the vitiated taste of
tho Times editor, but thoy will scarcely
be regarded' as parliamentary by people bettor acquainted with proprieties
of spoech.—Colonist.

A suggestion.
KniTOP. Columbian.—It does not appear to have occurred to tlie members of
the|legislature, when discussing the propriety of compelling doctors, lawyers
and teachers to undergo examination before practicing tlieir profession, tlmt the
true wav|lay between the two extremes.
I am told that threo doctors with diplomas of recent date from first-clans British or Canadian universities had to submit to examination; That was absurd.
Such an examination could prove nothing which was not proved liy the dipln-
mns. (Neither could prove professional
ability.) On tlia other lnuiii, it would
lie quite right to tost by examination the
evidence of diplomas issued by foreign or
obscure universities. No one acquainted
with new countrios and their ways needs
to be told that a diploma moro than five
years old, wliorovcr istu:d, ought [not to
lie accepted without good evidence that
tho holder has practical his profession in
tho meantime. Theso remarks will apply with pretty equal forco to lawyers,
doctors and teachers. To framo n bill
from this point of view would doubtless
involvo some trouble; and it may, perhaps, be ton much to oxpeot that our
legislators would take the trouble to be
jus:. Eeaueb.

'i ho annual report of this solidly t>-vs-
nerousCanadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiunts which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in whioh tlie Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to tho
total income the very small ratio of botween 17 aud 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the (inanceB of
the Comnany is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay tho death
claims--which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is some-thing to be
proud of. The nss ts and liabilities are
set forth In minute detail, and the tables
sfiow that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, thore is a surplus of $282,109
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year
was 9200,390. So much for what can be
done hy rigid adherence to what the
President defined an tlto true polioy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business,"
