Legislative Siiiinnarj.
WiiiiNEsiiAy, Feb. 29.—A number of petitions were presented asking to have bars closed on Sunday,
und from midnight to 6 o'clock every
morning. Mr. Bole moved it resolution affirming tbat short-hand reporters ought to be appoiuted to report
tbe proceedings of the supreme court
and the legislature. He pointed
out the importance of obtaining accurate reports of speeches delivered
in the house. In the courts* ihort-
luind report Would be most useful'
und would sometimes prevent serious mistakes. Hon. Mr. Bobson
endorsed the remarks of Mr. Bole
as fur as they related to the courts,
but thought it inadvisable to have
official reporters for the house because it would involve a considerable expenditure. The government
had for some time been considering
the question of appointing court reporters; and he hoped Mr. Bole
would permit his motion to lie
amended so as to apply to the courts
only, to which Mr. Bole agreed, and
the resolution passed.—Mr. Ladner
wanted to know when all the papers
connected with the Sumas dyking
lands would be brought down. Hon.
Mr. Kobson said these lands were
being administered by the province
to the satisfaction of the people, and
he didn't see why Mr, Ladner was
making such a fuss about the mat-
tor.—Mr. Orr succeeded in having
his committee appointed to enquire
into the rights of certain squatters
who claim to be entitled to ownership of town lots in Granville.—Mr.
Mason's resolution respecting the
mail service between Clinton and
Barkerville was also carried.—Mr.
Orr had a resolution passed asking
for returns of all papers concerning
the gazetting of a public road at
Ladners.—The second reading of
the legal professions amendment bill
brought on a long debate. Mr.
Higgins pointed out that Ontario
admitted legal gentlemen from this
province to practice in her courts on
terms similar to those contained in
the bill, and we ought to be equally
generous. Mr. Martin, seconded by
Mr. Allen, moved the six months
hoist. Hon. Mr. Robson said he
would support the bill. He could
not see why a member of any profession should be excluded from this
province. The provisions of tho
bill were manifestly fair, and instead of being an injury to the province would be a benefit. He had
a son who was studying law, and he
thought that tho introduction of
shrewd lawyers from other portions
of the Dominion would, by bringing them into contact, benefit the
young men who were now endeavoring to rise in their profession. So
fur as the remark that ooly third or
fourth-rate men would come in, if
our sons could not compete with
them so much the worse for them.
He could not see the utility of building a Ohinese wall around the province. Let tho doors be oponed wide
to all except, perhaps, tho Chinese.
He certainly would give his hearty
support to the measure. Hon. Mr.
Humphreys thought that the bar of
the province at present would not
compare favorably with the bar as
composed some years ago, and he
thought that this state of things
simply existed because of the "legal
professions act." Gentlemun high
in their profession had stated that
the reason they did not come here
was becauso they objected to being
examined before what they termed
a number of schoolboys, Let the
door be opened wide. He thought
the thanks of the community were
due the hon. introducer for bringing
the matter before the house, for it
would, if passed, widen thoir choice
in the selection of a lawyer. Ho
would heartily support the measure,
though he did not think it went far
enough. Mr. Bolo said ho had not
intended to sny anything in this
question, but he would tako advantage of the reinnrkaof thohon. member for Oomox and strike forth
boldly and above the belt. He
thought now that the hon. member
for Ksquiinalt had takon up the
rottencst plank in the opposition
platform, lie ought to be considered
a member of her majesty's loyal op
position. Ho was not gratified, however, with the tout that had converted him. Ho hoped, however, that
now that be had come over, ho would
lako hold upon one of tho strong
plunks of the opposition. The bill
placed himself and tho hon. acting
attorney-general on trial, and lie
thought ho would tako tho course
frequently followed in tho caso of a
prisoner, and throw himself on the
ineroy of the house. Tho lion, gentleman then proceeded in a very
happy stylo to discuss the bill, fre
qriimtly convulsing tho houso with
Ills wit and good humor. He was
pertain that tho passage of this bill
would not bring about the happy
state of affairs  predicted;  in  fact,
they would find that it would operate adversely to their expectations.
He would vote with the amondment.
The motion was carried by a majority of one.

THB rHEXCH EMB48SY AT IHE VAflCAt*.
Paius, Feb. 29.—In the chamber of
deputies tq-day M. Flourens, minister
of foreign affairs* demanded the restoration of the credit for the maintenance
of the French embasy at the Vatican,
which the budget committee had expunged from the budget. French influence in the east he said was being
attacked by the European pewers, and
France's principal means of action in
the east was tbe French embassy at
the Vatican. Premier Tirard supported M. Flourens.' demand and the
credit was restored by a vote of 291
to 240.
SHOCKINO BRDTAUTY.
Hodston, Tex., Feb. 29.—A shocking murder occurred at Spanish Camp,
sixty miles west of this oity, on Son-
day morning. The settlement is composed of Mexicans, negroes and whito
desperadoes. A negro cabin was set
on lire and the occupants deliberately
shut down as they ran, half awake, out
of tho burning house. Five were
killed outright and one severely
wounded, while two were burned trr
death in tho cabin. Another negro
was caught and hanged to a tree. The
butchery was the outcome of a suit for
the possession of land recently decided
in favor of tho dead negroes, in the
district court at Wharton. Spanish
camp ia far from any telegraph
station, and full details of the outrage
bave not yet been received.
A SINOCUR INCIDENT.
Ceuar Ramos, Iowa, Fob. 29—At
one of the revival meetings here tonight Belle Bo- n, a colored girl, aged
17, who had never spoken 1 word in
her life, suddenly sprang to her feet
exclaiming, "Behold!" loud enough
to bo heard distinctly by every ono in
tho house. Then a peculiar halo of
li;;ht illuminated her head and face
for a few moments. It s'.artled the
audience, and has created quite a sen-
satiun. Scores of eye witnesses testify
that this is fact.
WJXSON FOUND atllOT.
Pabis, Mar. 1.—After various trials
and examinations, Daniel Wil.on, ex-
President Grevy's »on-in-law has beon
couriered of soiling decorations of the
legion of honor and sentenced by the
government to two yesrs' imprisonment and to pay a fine or gGOO. He
is also deprived of all civil rights for a
period of 5 years.
WITH INTENT TO MOMiEB.
San Francisco, March 1. —Dr. Jas
McShafter, son of Judgo Jas. Mc-
Shafier, married Miss A. Lingo in
Germany sereu years since, against
the desire of her fathor. Tho judee's
family opposed the entree nf the son's
wife into their family and social circle,
but without avail. In Iho latter part
of lost year Dr. McShafter, presumably
under paternal pressure, commenced a
suit for divorce upon the grounds that
his wifo was not true to her marital
vows. Oarl L inge, a sailor, brother to
Iho persecuted woman, came to the
city to champion his sister's cause.
Divining that the elder McShafter was
at tho bottom of the divorce proceed-
inns, he sought to stop them by threatening Ihe magistrate's life. Not being
successful in his threats ho to-day attempted McShafter'. life by firing two
shots at him in tbo crowded new city
hall. Neither shot took effect, and
Lingo finds himself in tlio tanks
charged with assault with intent to
murder.

London, March, 1,—In tho houso

was excessive Sir James Ferguson
said ho did not consider the sum asked for a large one, and that the expenses of no previous similar commission hsd ever beon covorcd by a like
sum. He said Mr. Chamberlain's mis
sinn hnd resulted in success. If thore
should be any delay in obtaining ratifications from the two governments (o
tho treaty, a modus Vivendi had been
agreed upon by tho commissioners, under which, irmcrioally, the provisions
of the treaty como at once into opera-

years, during which time he hoped
that the treaty would be ratified. Mr.
Gladstone applauded Mr. Chamberlain ns a man of eminent ability, and
who was competent to grasp tho question under cniDidcrntinn. This ho

Those who have contended that
the anti-disallowance sentiment was
a party matter, confined almost exclusively to Grits, will havo some
difficulty in explaining the fact that
at a meeting of the conservative association lately held in Winnipeg,
at which 300 members worepresent,
a resolution denouncing disallowance
was unanimously passed, We have
beeu told frequently that the disallowance agitation was confined to
Winnipeg Grits who proposed to
use it as a politicul machine, and
that thero was no extensive public
spmpathy ill connection with the
movement. But it will not do to
put forward such a doctrine now.
Tho conservative association of Winnipeg, which is a strongly conservative community, has beon wrecked
on this very rock, and unless the
policy of disallowance is abandoned
or modified it may wreck the Dominion government.
Reports from tho interior nre to
the eli'ect that stock has come
through the winter in an unusually good condition, but there havo
been no sales. Some years ago a
cattle syndicato was formed to control the stock business in this provinoe. At that time competition
threatened to ruin the business,
stock in somo instances having been
sold at less than the cost of raising
it. Tho syndicate practically controls the fresh meat business, and it
intends to maintain its position.
Last season, instead of buying from
other stock-raisers it determined to
reduce greatly its own stock, and,
consequently, private cattlemen are
left with large herds on hand with
no prospect of sales for some timo to
come. This has had the efi'ect of
creating a certain amount of stringency in the interior, because stock
men who are not syndicato men
have no money to show for the season's operations. Quite possibly an
effort will be made to find a market
for the cattle elsewhere—in the oust
or Great Britain. The scarcity of
money among stock raisers has produced a perceptible depression in
many parts of the interior whicli,
we hope, will quickly disappear.
If our merchants feel they have
been badly treated in the failure of
the China steamers to call here, and
they surely must, they can ensily
get even. Let them boycott the
steamers, even if it did cost a little
more, which we are assured it would
not. Not an ounce of freight should
be sent by that route; importers owe
a duty to this city in ordering their
goods anyway but by the steamers
in connection with the Canadian
Pacific Railway. As they are under the patronage of the 0. P. 11,
and could be easily influenced by
that monopoly if necessary, it might
be necessary to go oven further in
future. Wo are, happily, not dependent on that road.—Colonist,
This is the old story, and it is
strictly in keeping with the policy
pursued by Victoria from the beginning. We think it has been pretty
clearly shown that the China steamers could not call at Victoria or Esquimalt under existing regulations
without serious delay and consequent
interference with the efficiency of
the line. But the Colonist insists
that they must either stop at Vict-
toria or submit to the boycott. Now,
where the boycott is applied to any
business, tho purposo of those employing it must be to kill that business. The purpose of tho Colonial
and these who agree with its views
in Victoria is, therefore, to kill the
British Columbia and China stoam-
ship line because it refuses to stop
at Victoria. There is no question
IB to the benefit of this line to British Columbia and Canada, but that
must go for nothing so long as Victoria's senseless ambition is ungrati-
fied. If all other British Columbia
cities wero to act on the samo dog-
in-the-manger principle, the trade of
this province would speedily be destroyed. If Westminster nnd Vancouver and Nanaimo should agree to
boycott Victoria, the island capital
would very quickly perceive how
dangerous are the tools with which
ahe it proposing to play. As a rule
people outside of Victoria patronize
those with whom they find it most
convenient and profitable to do business, and they have never sought to
crush those whose interests seem to
be in direct opposition to their
own. Not long ago the Colonist intimated that the China steamers
■would make their headquarters at
Victoria, and would not come to the
mainland at all; now, because they
come to the mainland without stopping at the island, it proposes to kill
the line I If such a threat is carried
into execution, possibly the people of
the mainland cities may be moved to
retaliate by arranging to boycott
Victoria. Then the people of the
capital would perhaps learn to have
tome considerations for the rights of
othen. . i

using the Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects it produced. It not

so stimulated its growth, that I hav.

Our Cumin*; Industry.
Mr. John Hendry roturned from
San Francisco yesterday after an absence of soveral weeks. Tlio trip was
made partly on business and partly on
pleasure, and he returns satisfied with
having attained the objects iu view. Ln
conversation with a representative of
the Columbia*- Mr. Hendry said ho
had completed all arrangmonts for
bringing ships to Westminster to load
lumber for foreign ports, but, until a
chart of the river and entrance was
prepared, showing tlio depth of channel, etc., uo ships would arrive. As the
board of trado has taken tho matter in
hand, nnd Capt. Lewis has received
ins*ructions from Ottawa; a survey of
the channel will go forward immediately, and it is almost certain wo shall
seo vessels loading at the lloyal City
Mills within a very short time.

easily as if she had been long accustomed to such proceedings. The
steamer is intended to run un the Harrison river, between tlie landing and
the hot springs Hotel, and has been
built expressly for that purpose. Hor
dimensions nro aa follows: Length
over all, 75 ft.; breadth of beam, )0\
ft.; depth of hold, 5 feet. Tho model
is very slurp and, being of light
build, it is expected she will make
a high rate of speed. Such a steamer
as this will be has long Wen wanted
on the il unison river, and that it will
be fully appreciated aud largely patronized by the travelling public, goes
without snying.

Westward appears to bo tho ordor of
railways as woll ns the empire. Tho
surveyors of tho Manitoba railway aro
now out locating a lino westward
through Montana and Idaho to Washington Territory nnd Pugot Sound.
At last accounts they woro encamped
on the Clearwater at tho mouth of
Kanui Crook, about 40 miles cast of
Moscow in Idaho. The lino will pass
through that town and thence due west
over a practical route which has been
discovered through eastern Washington Territory, lt is known in railwny
circles in the east that Mr. J. J. Hill's
determination is to reach tide water ou
Putrot Sound at somo safe.point accessible at all seasons and stages of the
tide to seagoing vessels. Humor has
it that this shrewd, far-seeing Canadian-American railway king has made
a selection for his Puget Sound term
inus somewhere on Bellingham Buy.
where ho has secured a tract of 17000
acres of laud, on which he purposes to
raise a future seaport city. Mr. Hill's
enterprise is truly astounding. Liko
many other successful railway men,
everything ho touches appears to prosper and add still further to tho mnny
millions which ho has accumulated
within iho hist 20 years. In 1802 ho

From Ike Interior.
Mr. John Murray of Spences Bridge,
who was in tho city to-day, Bays the
past winter in tho interior has been delightful, and with the exception of the
cold weather in January, has been unusually mild. The clays havo beon
bright and warm for some weeks past,
ami punsies wero in bloom in his garden when he left home. The winter
has been unusually favorably for cattle and they have come through in
splondid condition. Very little feeding was necessary and the bulk of hay
saved last year will bo hold against
contingencies that may arise next season. The ranchers complain that thoy
are not ablo to dispose "f their cattle
roiidilyand are consequently rather
short of ready money, but a demand
is expected from the other s de of the
Rookies, and possibly some shipments
will bo made to Liverpool, which will
relievo tho present stringency in monoy matters. Since tho syndicate stopped purchasing cattlo tho ranchers
havo boen forced to find n market for
themselves, and this has lod to considerable clashing since tho demand
haa fallen oil'.
< on mil Meeting.
Tho council met this afternoon to
take into consideration the new city
charter. Present, His Worship Mayor
Dickinson and all the councillors.
His worship explained tho business
before tho mooting and recommended
they should go into committee on tho
whole.
Coun. Elliott wi3hod to know if the
meeting was to be secret; they had
talked round about it and he thought
the meeting should bo confined only
to the council and the committee appointed by the board of trade. Conn.
Elliott concluded by moving that the
council go into committeo of the whole
iu secret session.
Couu's Shiles and DeBeck opposed
a secret session ns did also Coun. Hoy
who asked Coun. Elliott to withdraw
his motion.
His worship said tho meeting ought
to bo as public as possible, and he
could see no good reason for making it
otherwise, The matter was one of
great interest to tho public, and, personally, he would like to see the council chamber filled with citizens. To
go into secret session and exclude
everyone, reporters and all, and prevent the public from obtaining information on a subject on which all wore
so deeply interested, was, he considered entirely uncalled for. His worship
said the council could mako it a secret
session if they wished to, but he would
strongly advise to the contrary.
Coun. Elliott withdrew his motion
and the council went into committee
of the whole, and, assisted by the committee from tho board of trade, discussed the charter clauso by clause.

Mr John nt ibe llevivol,
Ottawa, Feb. 21.—The revival services conducted by Rov. Mr. Hunter
and Rev. Mr. Crossley during the past
six weeks in the Dominion Methodist
church here wore to havo boen brought
to a close to-night. Tho interest they
have excited iu all classes of society
has boen great, and augmented by the
fact that Sir" John and Lady Macdonald have been attending ns often
as two and threo times a week. Tonight tho church was crowded to tho
doow, and over 1000 woro shut out.
Two pews, however, reserved with
great care from thu pressing multitude,
were watched with eager interest, and
a very perceptible thrill went through
the audience as the premier nnd Lady
Macdonald, with Lieut. -Governor
Dewdney, and Mrs. Dewdney, Lieut.-
Govornor Aikens, Mrs. Chas. Watson
and other friends entered the church,
and proceeded to fill them. During
the course of the preliminary exercises, your correspondent learned that
the evangelists to-day lunched with
Sir John, when he told in all sincerity
that he had experienced a change of
heart. HiB well-known features woro
a rather serious nnd troubled expression us he walked to his scat. He
took pai tin the singing with cnriKnt-
ne-js, nnd thoso in his neighborhood,
who were observing him, were Uot surprised when, in answer to an uppu.il
by Mr. Hunter that all who wished to
become Christians and desired tho
prayers of tho audience would stand
up, the premier uf tho Dominion,
whose name has bo long been tlio
the synonym of Iniquity, in many
worthy Grit minds, urose with his
wifo. It mndo a distinct sensation.
Later thu pastor of the church, the
Rev. Mr. Carson, made a motion,
whioh lio said had been his secret purpose for two days, to the effect that
tho evangelists bo besought to remain
iu Ottawa another week, although
they are due in Belleville almost immediately. One thousand names, said
Mr. Carson, had boon Bent frum tho
enquiry room, and of those fully one-
lull bv longed to denominations other
than the Methodist. Three hundred
and forty had been added to the roll
of  his churoh alono.   The speaker
looked straight at Sir John in requesting some gentleman in the audience to
seeond the motion, and the veteran
statesman did it. Later the question,
''All who love Jesus," brought Sir
John again to his feet. Tho evangelists decided on the spot to remain.
The collection fur the evening
nmeunte.d to $500, contributed on the
understanding that it should go to tho
reverend gentlemen who had takon
charge of tho services.
