Tkarsaay Kvealaf. April »«, UW.
Opr Jnkllee Hemorlal.
Vfe understand that a meeting is
to lie held in the Drill Shed next
Tuesday night to discuss the question ot properly marking the queen's
jubilee year. It is to be hoped there
may be a large attendance of representative citizens, and  that some
one may have a scheme to propose
worthy of tlie occasion.   It may be
worth while in the mean time to
comider the suggestion made by Mr.
Bole at the council meeting last
Monday night.   His suggestion was
tbat the city should secure possesion  of  that  tract of waste land
known as the park, lying between
the eastern boundary of the city
and the penitentiary, and fit it up
and dedicate it this jubilee year to
the loyal people of   Westminster.
Ever since confederation the owner*'
ship of this piece of land has been
in dispute between the Dominion
ahd provincial governments.    Both
claim possession of  the property,
But surely the merits of the respective claims must some time be settled, and might be settled now as
well as any time.   In the original I
plan of the oity this was clearly in- j
tended  for a public park, and as
such it should clearly be placed in
the hands bf the city corporation.
Vfe cannot believe the federal authorities would interpose any objection to its acquirement by the oity
for auch a purpose, and we are sure
the provincial government would be
only too glad to assist the people of
the Boyal Oity in any worthy scheme
for the celebration of the jubilee
year.   It has pledged itself to give
Victoria $20,000 in hard cash for a
jubilee hospital:  it could not possibly decline to give up this tract of
unoccupied land for a jubilee park.
The ground is well situated for recreation.   A large part of it is now
heavily timbered, and if the underbrush and part of the trees were
removed, thii would at once become
a most inviting retreat during the
summer montha.    There is a ravine
running through it, where a perpetual flow of pure water could be obtained   without   much  difficulty.
There is ain sufficient level ground
for cricket, hue hall, lacrosse, and
<other games.     This is something
that the oity of Westminster greatly
need), and which ought to be supplied without delay.   If a majority
of the citisens favor this scheme,
action ihould be taken promptly.
Our repreM-tati-e at Ottawa would
doubtless do all in his power to obtain a quit claim from the Dominion government, and the provincial
govemment   being  willing,  there
would'be nothing to hinder the dedication of Victoria Pork with due
Solemnity during the festivities of
the jubilee year.
Legal Hninbug.
It is a great misfortune that so
many of thoso who frame our statutes seem to have neglected to culti
nto the art of perspicuity. Laws
are placed on the statute books in
luch an ambiguous form that it
Often becomes necessary to pass an
interpretation act for the purpose of
explaining their meaning. The result of this ambiguity is sometimes
extremely perplexing. When men
trained in the law differ so widely
in their interpretation of ah act,
how can it be supposed that non-pro-
feuional men shall be Able to discover the meaning of our statutes!
Ever linoe the interstate commerce
hill passed the United States congress, hoth laymen and lawyers have
ben puzzling themselves over some
of It* olauies. One would imagine
that in a simple matter like this the
penoni who proposed to adjust the
abttaes of railway traffic muit have
hid a clear and definite idea of
what they wanted, and that there
ahould have been no difficulty in expressing that idea with sufficient
clUrneu to make it perfectly cora-
preheniible to ordinary minds. But
tbey have not succeeded in doing
this at all It is stated that the
railway companies have from the
fint manifested a disposition to
comply with the provisions of the
act; but they have not been able
hitherto to determine what the intent _f some of these provisions is,
Long ago they plaoed the matter in
the hands of the lawyers, but these
titUraien disagreed with each other.
Is hot likely the true meaning of
i1 act will oome to be understood
until it hu been explained by the

Oraphlo and JAwety PMcrlptlon of Sight,
on the Hsxlean Frontier.
The Bio Grande Is about one hundred
yards wide at Laredo, good, clear water
.lowing over a hard day stone bottom,
and oan be forded on horseback ln many
places, It ls only navigable for small
boats, from Brownsville down.
The high isnks on either side are
thick set with Mexican locals, or adobe
houses. These are built of large mud
brick which have been dried In the sun.
Tiiey have dirt doors and straw roofs,
and, ln many coses, no chimneys or
windows.
There are, also, cave-dwellers who
dig circular plte in the Side of the river
bank, and pass a lite ot contentment In
them.
Down by the water's edge a novel
soono Is presented. Women and children, barefooted and bareheaded, ore
seated on the rooks washing olothes in
the cold water.
Other women have tall,wide-mouthed,
side-handled jars fllled with hominy,
from which they are rinsing out tho lyo
and ashes, and the men are hauling
water on donkey carta. Those who have
not the cart, rig a barrel alter the fash-
Ion of a roller, OU lt with water, then
hitch a donkey to it by means of rawhide rope traces, and thus roll away a
daily supply. Thoso still less favored
trudge up tno hill with two bucket, of
wator suspended from the end. of a
pole, and balanced ncross the shoulders.
Leaving the river side we pass up
into tne oity of Nuovo Laredo, which ls
In tite State ot Tomaullpas.
It Is Bunday morning, yet all ths
stoves, eating houses, saloons, gambling
filnces and ooek*plts aro open to lhe pubic. At thU season of the year (February), chicken lighting on Sundays seems
to be the most popular amusement.
Later on, bull lights will be the chief
entertainment every Bunday afternoon.
There ls a large arena ln the suburbs of
the city, where the public gather to witness the semi-savage entertainment,
Though strongly condemned by oltl-
rens ln tlie United States, yet, when they
come here, most Americans take ln tbe
bull-light at the first opportunity, regardless of tho day, and many of
them become quite regular patrons
thereafter.
On the street at one corner, ln every
publio place, we see an old, blind beggar, on his knees praying ln a very
loud volee, while hia hand Is extended
for alms. He prays loud and long for
all who nlll give.
There are scores of peddlers passing,
with a stool under ibe arm and a wide,
flat basket on their heads, Thsy may
be heard iu evory part of the oily crying, " pan, laoho, oame, tortillas duloo,
tamales," meaning bread, milk meat,
oorn-cakes and candy. The " tamales "
Is a mixture of corn-meal, meat and
red pepper, cooked in corn-shucks.
The most popular dish Is " chle con-
carnle," made of equal parts of hashed
moat and red pepper, with sufficient
water to mix them.
l'asslng on we see pack donkeys
loaded with wood, vegetables, water,
bay, and, ln fact, anything in the way
of burden, Tbey have no bridles, yet
aro easily guided by a man or boy who
follows on behind and goads them right
or left with a short stick.
Almost every family keeps a donksy,
snd, In a small town, where they all
bray tor tlieir breakfast at the same
time, other creatures may as well keep
silent. They arc, ln a measure, the
household canaries ot Meiloo, and
It not fed well are sure to sing for
you.
Next we meet a Mexican cow-boy.
He has on a wide, richly embroidered
sombrero, a buoksklu suit, a pair of
large spurs, a woolen blanket behind
the saddle, and a long, horsehair lariat
around the born of the saddle. He le
going la a lope on a wild mustang.
We also meot a number of cumbersome ox-osrts drawn by three yoke of
oxen. Tbe oxen pull by tbelr heads.
Tbe yoke Is always lushed to tbo
horns by moans of strong, rawhide
thongs.
Though Bunday morning, we meet a
man plowing and planting corn.  His
Elow is made of a square pleoe of timer, with an iron point on one snd, It
had two large holes bored In tbe top
side, front one of which the beam extended, and a single straight handle
from the other. He made marks with
this, and drilled the corn In rows about
one foot apart, with bopee ot raising
" males grande "—big oom.

Two old soldiers mst on a Kingston
Oity street to-day, and tbe first old veteran said to the other, who had been
his chum In the army:
" Bay! do you remember l teut. ,

"Ves, I remember the Lieutenant*

"The time he broke hia sword ovor

he laughed loudly,
"It was Just before the battle of
Frederloksburg, and our regiment had
been eent down the Bappabannook to
build a corduroy road, a sort of make-
believe arrangement to draw off the
Johnnies.
"Tho ground hadn't been foraged
over, and there were lots of good things
for tbe boys.
" Wo found a pen full of hogs, ud
tho boys went for the pork with their
bayonets aud killed a number of them.
■• Lieut.   stationed Himself at
tlie door ot the pen to keep the hogs
from running out, while tho boys prodded them. We got them all killed except _ big boar, and this porker wu
fairly wild.
"Ths Lieutenant had a handsome
new sword, which probably had been
preeentod . to him by his admiring
townsmen. He wu very proud of It
" One ot the soldiers made a lunge at
the boar, missed bis aim, Juat scratching the animal. Furiously ths hog
started for the door of the pern
" The men shouted, • Look out, Lieutenant, don't let bim get out f
"In the excitement tho Lieutenant
drew his sword, and as the boar stuck
Ite heod out ot the door gave tbe animal
a tremendous blow, breaking the blade
of his .word in two pieces.
" We killed the hog, but tho boys
could nover get over the little Incident,
and ever afterward when they were examining a new or particularly handsome
sword, instead of asking If It was a Damascus blade, would Inquire:

"Treatment by Absorption has for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual means
of convoying to Diseased Otgans, "Curatives," but in oases ot Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
HjIMITBD.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
thc Columbia- Newspaper ud
Printing Concern vas purchased by a
joint stock company composed ol citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been (or
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery ud
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tlie object of
tho new company Is to continue the publication of the British Columbian newspaper anil carry on a general printing ud

lishment, and its patrons may niy upon

The Comjmbia" will continue to bo entirely Independent In both Dominion ud
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of ench schemes a
may he considered ln the public interest.

any other liuainess, the book ud
stationery establishment in this oity
having been taken Over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
In hi. own name ahd'foV'his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In this city, ud
the new company asks lor publio patronage on the ground that It Is sngaged in

A HOME~COMPANY,
Thi. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
Tbe Security offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It bos no schemes of Insurance, but tbe
well-established lines, hence tbe polioy
holders cunnot be misted as to their contracts,
IU statements to tbe publio ean be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of Income and how espen*
Its position is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation tn whioh every item
of liability Is included.
Its progress hai been unexampled In
the history of insurance In Canada.
Ita policies an indisputable after three
yeara, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.  1
Ita profits are distributed upon an equitable dosIb. The proflta to one class of
policy holders are not lessoned to give
larger profits to any other olass, whieh
method affords superior advantages over
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

The supreme court of Tennessee recently decided that a telegraph company ia liable for damages for errors in
the transmission of messages. The
court held that the printed conditions
on the blank messages of the companies
are invalid and not binding on tho
Bender of a message, as a company cannot contract against its own negligence.
In the caso before the court a man had
telegraphed his agent to buy "1000
shares' of certain stock, rising in valuo.
Tho message was made to read "100
shares." He sued the telegraph company for the amount lost and recovered
judgment.

Houso lost night. Thero were presont
Messrs. Boyd, Corbott, Crake, Figg,
Hamilton, Hillyer, Jaquos, Julien, A.
Leamy, Mills, Walker, and Wobb.
Mr. Figg was appointed chrirman, and
Mr. Walter J, Walker seoretary. The
socretary was empowered to obtain tho
necessary books for the management
of the society, and also instructed to
make up the first list of shareholders,
for tho use of the provisional directors
and others interested. After the usual
business had been transacted, the
meeting adjourned. Tho society is
making rapid progress, which evidently
shows that it supplies a real want; and
next meeting -ill be tho first at which
subscriptions aro due. Sovoral of the
most prominent of our citizens aro
already connected with it, and the
success of the sister sooiety at Victoria
proves it to be founded on a solid
financial basis.

No You Don't,—" If, for instance,
we were to accept his challenge, he
would either buck down or adopt some
subterfuge, and we should be held up
to ridicule for our verdancy." This is
the way our Ohuroh-st. cotemporary
tries to let himself down from his refusal to accept the Columbian's challenge. But it will not do, If our co-
temporary is really afraid that the
Columbian will buck down, we shall
add a condition to the challenge,
namely, that in the event of its backing down or resorting to a subterfuge
tho Columbian's deposit of 8100 is to
be forfeited at once and tho oommittee (to be named by our cotemporary
himself) shall be the judges, What
does our cotemporary say to that! Hia
charge is that our telegrams are stolen
and not paid for. Our proposal is that
we forfeit f 100 to the Royal Columbian hospital if wo cannot prove to the
satisfaction of uny three honorable
men (to be selected by our cotemporary) that our telegrams are bona fide
and regularly paid for; and if in the
opinion of our cotompurary's committee wo back down or resort to any
subterfuge, tho money is to be forfeited all tho same. Our cotemporary
must, of course, put up 8100, to be
forfeited to the hospital if we are ablo
to provo our claim. VVe aro surely
giving onr ootemporary rope enough,
and now we ask liim simply to put up
his forfeit or confess tbat he is afraid
to stand by his assertion.

Not long ago theEdinburgh Scotsman
had a sharp controversy with a Scotch
doctor of divinity. Among other
rather tart thinga tbo Scotsman suid
this: "The doctor thinks that be
cause we are opposing him we are opposing religion. Whether thu dnotor
in question did or did not think this
we do not know. Quite likely he did
not think anything of tho kind. But
whether he did or not, thousands of
mon are guilty of the kind of presumption that the Scotsman was driving at.
The moment you say a word about
them or their methods of working
they shout that you are opposing some
cause that they may have elected
themselves to represent. The smaller
the man, the louder the shout. The
less he has to do with the cause, and
the less credit ha is to it, Ihe more
likely ia he to declare that you are opposing the cause, when you ore only
using the slipper gently on the littlo
man himself.
These littlo mon swarm around the
temperance causo. They never
ewurmod to any oxtent until the cause
became-popular. Their name is legion
now. Say an unfavorable word about
any of their modos of working, and
they instantly ahout, " He is opposed
to temperanoe." Suggest that they
are not doing something as wisely at
it might bo done, and they instantly
yell, " He is opposed to prohibition."
Dare to suggest some way of working
that they don't liko, and they accuse
you of trying to injure the cause. Try
to put better men in thtir places if
they hold ofllce, and the chances art a
thousand to one that they will Insinuate you are working for the liquor interest. Now, the trouble with these
people ia thnt thoy imagine they ure
tiie temperance cause. Perhaps they
are deing tho cause moro harm than
good. Quite likely real temperance
men wmild be only too glad to get rid
of* some of them. But they are so
swollen with self-conceit thut they
consider anything said about than is
said about temperance.
These little men are too often found
airing their self-conceit at revival
aervices. Dare to criticise their methods, and lhey at once delare you
are " opposed to revival." Say you
think it would be better not to employ sume itinerant evangelist they
want, and they modestly tell you that
you are opposing the spirit. Affirm
that certain modes of presenting truth
rtiey like are misleading and therefore
dangerous, and although the half-
truths are as deadly and dangerous as
tha worst forms of error, they mildly
tell you that you are In favor of sending souls to hell. Their inflated self*
concejt makes them think that opposing Mem is opposing revival! They
oan not understand that a man may be
in favor of revival and not in favor of
them. You may have boen a believer
many years Hefore the inflated creatures were bot n—you may have been
the honored Instrument in bringing
many souls to the Saviour, yeu may
Musts
have helped many now in the Churoh
abovo to fight tho good fight during
life, and hare aided them in their
struggle with the last enemy, you may
have takon part in real revivals more
than once, aid' liavo hud the young
people coining to Christ in your own
congregation for years—and yet if you
dare not to say." ditto" to these little
men, suffering seriously from " big-
head," they denounce you as unfavorable to revivall Modest little fellows,
aro they hot! They are so inflated
with self-conceit that they fancy every
mun who does not uncover and go
down on hit marrow-bones in their
presence must be opposed to a revival
of religion! Men with so muoh self-
conceit to the square inoh are a goad
deal more likely to get their inspiration from beneath than from above.—
