The Hail and Monopoly.
Beoause the Mail has advised
the people of Manitoba to compel
their candidates foi
house to take thafflil
tion to disallowance, a
ent aoccuses us of teaching immoral
doctrine, Ho says the monopoly
clause is part of the contract with
faith. Further, if the clause were
expunged and freo trade in railways
granted to Manitoba, the merchants
and,   manufacturers   of   .Ontario

being the gainers. We think this
view it based on a misconception.
It ii true the monopoly wat to on?.
Oharles Tupper, on behalf of the
government, promised to see that it
wat repealed so soon as the Canadian Pacifio had completed its all-
rail route, . The agitation now
ingbrlt<njtlqst«iii»llow.nceii
fore nothing morethan an attempt
to induce the administration to
carry out a pledge. Awa matter of
fact, no one ever supposed that the
monopoly could be kept alive for
twenty yean. Even if it be assumed that everv man residing in
the provinoe in 1881 was trifling,
for the take of a trunk road, to forego the advantages of competition
for a lifetime, it is clear that no
•uch bargain could bind the future.
Tht influx of settler*,- Umt development oi tho resources of the province—in a word, tha natural forces
of expansion, oan*ot be ktpt in
check by parchments. If Manitoba

new arrival that he must submit to
monopoly because, parliament has
oontraitstt:. nl»' *«ttof the right to
competition, is simply to impose an
Impossible oqndition upon him. He

mtniifacttrrm cannot hold hit market urid« the existing ttft*, if he
is to have competitive Unit to tbe
goods. We believe, on tha contrary,
that as railroad cottpetition would
cheapen rates, it would also benefit
the Ontario trader.     The settler

•   8t*^ "Ksver had'tlheir eyes on the'
harbor of Pearl River, situated near
'•' Hondnltt., Hois harbor is described
as possessing many advantages for
both commercial and military pur
poses, and as it lies directly in the
route from San Franoisco to China
and Australia, its position is one of
great importance. The Americans
have been, accustomed to regard
tne Sandwich Islands as a sort of
suburb of the United States. It
lies bo near them and so far away
from any other power, and its trade
relations with them are so large and
intimate, that one does not wonder
at tlieir anxiety to take.it under
thw "protection^and gain a military
•• jJfjiUu)ldi,on its"»T>il. Pearl'River
harbor is completely sheltered, und
lias room for all the navies of the
world. '■'' It is easily defended, and
' •' With three or four heavy guns well
posted at its entrance it could shut
•. - .out any hostile fleet. Inside the
desSlvy of crater is ample, but near
(fie entrance there is a shoal which
■Hit be removed before it could be
^nta4e available for vessels of heavy
draft. In all probability this new
aiquiaition will .be fortified and
garrisoned and made a depot for
coal and military supplies, and
after' a while we may expect to find
the whole Hawaiian kingdom virtually in the hinds of the United
States. In many respects these
islands Would be a valuable possession, but they are the head centre
oi leprosy, and. are also completely
overrun by Chinese.'
PMlcloglol JwgKlcry.
The protectionists sometimes find
theajtejvse driven into most strange
pitjofustaenit in their efforts to deprive; their system of the appearance
of mofiopoly. Speaking of the
raisin industry, thc San Franoisco
Ctttt-ttjt that Secretary Bayard's
proposal to reduce the duty on im-
pprtod rutins is, virtually, a proposal fto tox California from $200,000
to;|4O0,000 in order to oblige Spain."
The process of reasoning by which
the' CasU arrives at this reminds us
or tha, kgip-to wIsj^ttfrYjegiria
C*£$U, KBly found that all indo-
pendent political candidates are
■' tirlftiin'dmgaite. Froth one to two

Sink' that the duty of 20
cent! a box now imposed on foreign
raisins for the purpose of protecting
the California growers is n tax, and
that,' the;, removal of it would be
lifting a tux towards which every
person contributes who uses raisins
in the United State,. From the
Caffs admission we find that not
only.are ihe people of the United
States paying 20 ots. a box mora for
California raisins than they ought

20:otti a pound more for all imported raisins than they are. worth.
Many complaints are being made in
this province on account of the
heavy tariff charged by tht Canadian Pacifio Railway. If tho government should step in and regulate
tins Wlff by reducing it, the amount
of the reduction oould be called a
tax qu* the C. P. R. with as much
reason*, the VeUI hat in designating
a reduction in .the raisin duty a tax
on California. But the people of

To the Electors or the District of

GENTIiEMEN.-In offering myself to
tho District of Westminster to represent
you In the Commons this coming open*
ing of the Houso, Ido ho tn all sincerity,
believing thnt I eun do moro for your Interests than any of tho gontlemon that
huvo come forward so far. I om a thorough
Conservative and in entire sympathy
with tho present government, who have
r.roved themselves tho friend In need and
n deed to British Columbia.
Uent lemon, I Imve my private feelings
and opinions on most of tho questions of
thc day, hut If I go to tho House by your
sanction to represent you, I shall submit
to your commands nnd directions whioh
you can H'-nd me n-ohc different-questions
of tho day present themselves and as circumstances, Interests nnd oplnlonschange
on tho spot, to bo represented; for I hold
that In going to parliament by your vote
aud pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
aud not as your lord and master, as somo
have thought nnd acted accordingly when
out of your reach.
Tom pern ii cc, gentlomen, ls one of the
(mcKtlons that trouble Uio distriot at the
present time. Now, gentlemen, whon the
right time arrives for us- to receive prohibition nono will he found to work for that
measure with moro sincerity or energy
than I, and no government on earth will
lie more lumpy togrunt that measure than
thoy* hut (no time has not arrived yet, I
am sorry to say, and I say further, that
tho timo for prohibition entirely rests
with the temperance people themselves,
for as soon as thoy prove their sincerity In
the cause hy petitioning parllameiitto pnt
a lax on tea, coffee and other artlolea. and
on Income If necessary, thereby providing
revenue to carry on the government, then
and then only can thoy succeed ln their
cause, then und thou only can the government comply with their wishes. Money
Is the root of all evil, so parsons tell uh,
nnd money Is tho mighty lover that Is going to lift you Into that haven of temperance you all ko desire nnd dream of.
Gentlemen, I fully realize the Importance of your selecting a good and proper
man to represent you at Ottawu.nmfl also
fully realise tho fact that 1 at so great dis*
su,m^n»
llgcnccauil to tho friendship of'my old

or Injured by your selection',
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to serve you sincerely nnd faithfully In
ull things If sent to ttie Commons to represent you thoro, and If you do not I can
stop at homo, help you whon I can, and
sincerely wish you may ho as woll served
as I would liko In serve you myself
Gentlemen, yon can give me my answer

Ashcboit, Feb. 1.—The weather
since Sunday hu been cold, the thermometer being 26 below zero on Tuesday, and- 22 this morning. Since
Christmu there has been good sleighing, a circumstance whioh has not occurred for years. Cattle ore vet doing
well, but it ia feared if cold weathor
continues there will be many an empty
stall before spring. Yet tlie prospect
is not gloomy, for the deep snow menu
plenty of grass for lhe coming summer.
Even if the snow left, the hills are
perfectly barren owing to the dryness
of the put summer. The political
temperature is quite moderate. There
iB no prospect as yet of any competition for the Dominion seat against
Mr. Mara.

(Correspondence ot the Columbian.)
We are having a regular little winter,
the thermometer being pretty dose
to tero and the wind, whioh is very
high, hu blown numerous trees across
the telegraph wire, breaking it in set-
oral places and stopping all communication on this part of the line for a
while, and also obstructing the road
for travel. Mr. Wm. Murray, who
was repairing bridges on the Yale rood
deserves credit for the strong and
workmanlike manner in which he has
completed his job. Mr. Ju. Johnson,
of Viotoria, is visiting friends in Langley. The young folks are not going to
want for amusement, ns there was a
ball at Alder Grove on Friday lut, and
on Friday next there is to one at Elgin
in the hall, alto a social is to be held
in. the Presbyterian church on Tuesday, Feb. 8th, the proceeds to help to
pay the debt on the building, In addition to the large quantity of brush
thrown on the middle of the road on
Smith's hill, it hu been otherwise repaired. Mr. Boothroyd hu had hit
store lathed and plutered, and is now
in shin-shape for doing a big busineu.
Mr, Wm. C. McDougall, of Elgin, is
having constructed a railway from the
river up into the woods with which he
intends to convey his logs to the water
on ears drawn by hones. So you see
Surrey will have the honor of the railway.' It is rumored that there will be
a sawmill soon under construction in
Eight, which till be gKatiy appreciated by the people of the municipality.
Mr. James Murphy, who hu been

' Somas, FebVSi-On the' #lh January a heayy wind paued over this
valley, causing considerable damage.
A huvy flr tree fell on Mr. D. Stewart's house, smubing one-half of the
building into .torn.. The family had
a narrow esupe. Our newly elected
counoil are laying plans for a large
amount of municipal work. They
propose to borrow (10,000 to expend
on rosd-muking and ditohiug. It is a
question it a vote of the ratepayers
will sustsiu the idea of creating a debt
that might be avoided. Our corporation fathers should study political
economy and reniber the old adage,
"Out of debt, out of danger." The
municipal election hu cauudcon.id.r-
ahle disutisfsction, u it is ssid to
hsve bun illegal for a number of reasons. For instance, any person who
wu not ssssnsd for real property and
had dune ttatute labor wu allowed to
vule, and the voters list wu not pre
Sired in time. Ont ol the but legal
rm. wire ouniulted, and gave their
opinion thtt the eleotion wu bsd.
The newly-elected reeve hu expressed
himself in opposition to granting
liquor licemu, therefore the temperance party have dsoided not to take
the eleotion cau into court. It may
seem to the publio that the temperance party are in the minority in thit
municipality, u a reeve wu elected
who, every person supposed, would bt
in favor of granting liquor liotntui
but a large number of the ratepayers
had not paid their taxu and were deprived of their votn. Stoek ii doing
well, but cattle will bt Karoo next
ipring. Mr, Davit, who livu on tht
Skagit river, W. T., and owns a large
herd of Holttiin eattle, hu runted

mentt for the purpott of disposing ef
tome ot hit herd. Ht proposu to exhibit lomt of hn herd at the provincial exhibition to be htld it Chilli-

Attempt to Lynch.
OmqAdo, Jen. 19.—The Maine's
Detroit apeoiil of January 18th uys:
Great excitement was occasioned in
Justice Beatcbor's court this afternoon by an attempt to lynch a negro
named Henrd, who was on examination charged with an assault on two
sisters of charity, Five young fellows, who are strangers to the officers,
entered the room and sat down near
the prisoner. Prosecuting Attorney
Minock wu making out the commitment, and whtle his baok wu turned
a slip-noose in a rone fifty feot lung
wu thrown over Hazard's neck. The
rope wss then psssed sround tbe railing in front of the justice's desk snd
Hszard was pulled about fifteen feet.
His eyes bulged out of his head and
his tongue hung out of his mouth.
There wu great excitement among
the spectators, and after much difficulty and a struggle between the
young men end the one policeman
present, Hssard was rescued in time
to prevent his strangling to death.
The young men made a hasty exit
from the court and drove away.
His first poem was on "Dead Roses."
When it came out he eagerly seized
the newspaper and prepared to read
the beloved effusion. Horrors upon
horrors! what* does he see? "Dead
Roses?" Ah, nol The fiendish hand
of the intelligent compositor hss done
its cruel work, and there, staring in
the hideous black-letters; the sensitive youth found the words: "Dead
Horses." With a piteous moan he
flung the hated thing aside, and steeling his heart sgainst the muses he gave
up poetry forever and went into
politics.
"I wish I was a star," he said,
smiling at his own poetic fanoy. "I
would rather you were a comet," she
said,, dreamingly. His heart beat tu.
multuonsly. "And why?" he uked.
tenderly, taking her unresisting little
hands in his own. "And why?" he
repested imperiously. "Oh," she
said, with a brooding earnestness that
fell upon hia soul like bore feet on a
cold oilcloth, " then you would come
round only once every 1,600 yesrs:"

The Confederation Lire.
The annnal report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be fonnd
in snotber column. The facts revealed
in the accounts aid the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiuras which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management, Thanks to the resolute
manner ln whioh the Company hu declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the.company bur to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 und 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finance, of
th. Company i. the fact that the interest
inoome is suftlolsut to pay thc death
claims—which in a company of the age ol
the Confederation Life li something to be
proud of. The assta and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
.very debt, there la a mrplna of $282,199
over liabllitiea and capital combined.
The Increase In the tssets in the lut year

done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined u the true polioy of
