Current Events and Opinions.
The Orangemen of Ulster, who
under the name of Loyalists contemplate engaging in a rebellion,
made a mistake when they boiiBted
of the aid they would receive from
Canada and Australia. That is a
point upon which the Nationalists'
have ft great advantage of them.
If. any aid is to be furnished from
this side of the sen, America will
send ten men to fight in ihe Nationalist cause for every one sent by
Canada to fight in (he cause of the
Ulster Orangemen. The hitter had
hetter be careful, how they invoke
aid from the outside. It would be
a dangerous precedent. —-Seattle Post.
Slowly the work of forcing polygamy to surrender goes on. By a
process so gradual as to resemble
growth the loop-holes of escape are
being closed, and the alternative
seems imminent, either give up or
get out. Last week the Mormons
appeared by counsel before the
judiciary committee of the house
of representatives iu opposition to
the pending Edmunds bill, but without making any apparent impression. The indications are that the,
' bill will pass and become a law;.
And now the supreme court of the
United States has opened the week
with a decision which can hardly
fail to materially facilitate the enforcement of the existinyanti-polyg-
atny legislation of congress. Wherever they turn for sympathy arid
succor the upholders of the great
abomination are checkmated and
baffled. The decision just rendered
is to the effect that not simply
plural marriage is criminal, but that
the first wife, bo long" as-she be
alive and the matrimonial bond
undissolved, is tho lawful wife, tu
the cose appealed the convicted
polygamist put away his real wife
and clove to a younger woman to
whom he had been "sealed," and
thought thus to evade the penalties
of the law. The lower or territorial
court convicted him and the supreme
court sustained the conviction. Several other cases now pending hinged
upon this appeal and the decision
rendered. Now that the obstruction of that appeal has been removed the work of enforcement"
should ho resumed. Some of the
leaders, besides George Q. Cannon,
have fled the country, but there are
enough left to keep the machinery
of justice reasonably busy for* some
time yet The great thing is not so
much to swell the number of arrests
and imprisonment as lo convince
the Mormons that the government
is thoroughly in earnest, nnd that
the impediments in the way of executing the law have at laat been
removed. This enemy of decency
and domestic virtue is situated now
very much as General Lee was
wheu Generul Grant resolved to
"fight it out on this line if it takes
all summer." It took not only that
summer but the next full aud winter to fight it out, but the line was
so drawn that the enemy could
neither resist nor run away, and
utter collapse was only a question
of time. A few months, more or
less, cut very little figure in the
case. So whether the overthrow
of polygamy be swift or stow is not
important. The point to be kept in
mind is certainty, and if the local
authorities of Utah will only follow
up the advantage of the decision
just rendered there can be no doubt
about tho result.—Chicago Inter-
Ocean.
VOLUME 29
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY, MAY 29, I860.
NUMBER 43
Political Peculiarities.
Mrs. Jenny K. Trout, M. I)., vice-
president of the society for tho advancement of woman and a well-known
resident uf Toronto writes thus to tho
Chicago Inter-Ocean respecting the
progress of woman in Canada:
Laat winter in the House of Commons,
a new frsnchtie bill wait introduced by
Sir John A. Macdonald, the premier of
Canada. This bill gave Indians, widows
and unmarried women the right to vote;
but, ^uprising as it may senm Ike red
ntna wilt nous ham more to nay about the
affairs of state, than women. The power
which the premier intended to confer on
women was eliminated from the measure
during its passago through the house.
However, in the Ontario.Jegialature municipal franchise has been conferred on
widows and unmarried women. In some
at the. towns these new voters- have
marched to the polls and succeeded in
securing the election of men favorablo
to the temperance movement, wliich ia
now making rapid strides notably lu the
provinco of Ontario, Iu this city {Toronto), the second lu size and importance in
Canada, an organized effort will he made
to bring the several thousand womelt
voters to the polls next winter.
Dr. Trout might have added that
the woman's suffrage clause was eliminated with the consent, nnd by the
connivance of Sir .("tin Macdonald personally, nnd that hiB |iroBontation of
tho proposal waa only a cheap attempt
to gain a little clap-trap applause. But
to adopt ihe immortal laiiRtmgu of tho
Hon. .lohn Henry Pope, who for hoiiio
occult reason or other, haB lint buuti
present in parliament for more tlinu a,

Teaching Deaf-Mates to Bead,
Instruction is conveyed to deaf-
mutes in most instances by tiie use of
sit-n language, or the manual alphabet.
The foundation maxim of tht methods
used is "first ideas, then words." The
mind muat be roused to activity, and,
aa tho foundations of knowledge which
other children acquire by the aid of
hearing aro here wanting, progress ia,
of course, very slow at 6rst, Usually,
instruction is begun by the word
method, words being connected with
the objects they represent. For instance; the child is shown some common object, or a picture of- an animal,
and the printed name of the object
or animal ib shown him at the same
time. He is thos taught to connect
namea with their objects and to rec
nize printed words. When a few
words have, been learned, '-ai-nlencea
are framed,' and the* chtltf is taught to.
recognize these as units embodying a
complote idea. The printed and'the
sign alphabets are taught together and,
when, these are mastered, instruction
in spelling is not difficult. After namea
of objects, their obvious properties,
with numerals and verbs of action, are
next taught. The adjectives first
brought forward are thoso of size and
color, then prepositions of locality.
The -simple tenses are exemplified by
calling attention to a series of actions.
Muoh use is made of contrast of ideas.
A child uf 10 or 12 years of age, if
possessed of -ordinary intelligence, can
usually, at the end of a year, construct
for himsolf simple sentences about
eyery-day affairs. During the first two
or three years text-books prepared
especially for deaf-mutes are used,
after that any text-books will serve.
Another method of teaohing deaf-
mutes, by lip-language or visible
speech, Jb described in Our Curibsity
Shop Booh for 1885.— Inter-Ocean.      {

Emancipation In Great itntaln
Slavery existed in early times in
Great Britain as a part of tho feudal
systom. The English peasantry in
Saxon and Norman times, were sold
in the markets like eattle for exportation. After tho Norman conquest the
surfs wero mu.ro, chattels, bought and
auld with tin- lnnd on which they toiled,
and many cruel laws confirmed the
absolute power uf the _ master over
them. But with the advancement of
civilisation the feudal system gradually weakened. The church had alwaya "pp-jsod the practice of holding
Christiana in bondage and had' set
many free, and numbers tuok advantage of tho privilege granted them in
certain casts to purchaso their own
freed.un. In 1574 Queen Elizabeth
ordered the. bondsmen in the western
countries of England to be set free at
easy ratea. In 1660, the abolition of
tenures and knight's service destroyed
serfdom. But a form of the cruel
system continued to survive in Soot-
laud, where the law- compelled colliers on entering a mine to perpetual
service there, the right to their labor
passing with the mine to any inheritor
or purchaser, and their children being
iu like nature attached to the mine,
and forbidden under severe penalty to
reek other employment. This form of
legalized serfdom was not abolished
until 1780. .-The negw: ShtVery of
modern times, however, never became
naturalized in England, though many
Englishmen shared in the profits of the
slave trado. An account of the first
part taken by England in this traffic,
through Sir John Hawkins, will be
found in -our curiosity shop .book for
1886. Betwoen the years 1680 and
1700 Great Britain exported from Africa to America no less than 300,1)00
slaves, aud between 1700 and 1786,
she imported 610,000 Into Jamaica
alone, In all England's American
colonies slaved wero held. But it
should be said to the eredit of Englishmen, that the condition of the slaves
in these colonies was far better than in
most   slave holding1 countries.    The
_ging of women was prohibited by
law, nud courts wero established to
hear complaints of slaves who regarded
themselves cruelly treated. But while
slavery was legalized in colonies under
British rule it was decided) i" 177-., by
the court of King's bench, in the case
of- the negro Somerset, that as loon as
a slave set foot on British soil he became free; though, if he returned to
the colonies, he might be again reclaimed by hia master. Before the
idea of emancipation of ; these -slaves
was contemplated, efforts were made
in Great Britain to put an end to the
share of that country jn the slave
trado.«In 1787 a society for the suppression of the slave trade was formed
in London. Tho most active member
of parliament iu the cause was William
Wilbeforce, and he secured the favor
of Mr. Pitt, tho prime minister, for
the contemplated measure. Iu 1788
an order from tho crown directed un
inquiry into the trallic and the same
year an act was passed to regulate the
burden of slave ships. Mr. Wilber-
foree's bill forbidding further importation of slavoB was debated in 1701, bulj
was uot passed. As Great Britain's
conquest of the Dutch colonies^u'
America dod to a great increase in the
British slave trado, this traflic in the
conquored colonies was forbidden in
1805, aad in 1806 an act was passed,
forbidding British subjects to take
paH In it, cilhor for British colonies or
foreign countries. In the next year,
the general abolition hill, making'all
slave trade illegul after .Jan. 1,1808,
wa* adopted by parliament. As the
profits of the traflic induced British
subjects to continue in Jt, under cover
of tho flags of other nations, it was in
1811 iiiiido a felony, punishable with
imprisonment at hard labor or transportation. Subsequent laws made it
piracy, tu be punished with transportation for life, Tho agitation on the
subjeot directed the attention of philanthropists to tho moro complete measure of abolishing slavery in all the*
British colonics. An anti-slavery society Was fufmed to* press* the subject,
upon tho attention of pnrlinment. , In
18,13 an emancipation bill passed both
houses and received the royal approval.
Tins aot gave freedom to all slaves
throughout the British colonies, and
indemnified iheir owners with an award
uf £20,000,000. Slavery was to cease
uu Aug. 1, 1834, but the staves wore
fur a certain timo to continue sb apprenticed laborers with iheir former
owners. An I hii Apprenticeship was
not wholly satisfactory to either side
it was shnrlened, and oomploto emancipation took place Ih 1838.

A Wooden Navy.
It was announced lately that the
North Atlantic   squadron of   the
United States had been ordered to
the Canadian   fishing   grounds to
protect the interests of the republic.
Commenting upon   this announcement the San Francisco Call points
out the  utter inefficiency of   the
American navy for suclt a purpose.
The North Atlantic   squadron is
made up of such material, it says,
that in case of actual hostilities it
would be forced to take refuge in
flight or suffer sudden annihilation,
lt is made np of 6 vessels of which
1 is classed first rate, 1 second rate,
and 4 third rate.    The number of
guns carried is 62, not one of which
throws a projectile of more than
180 lbs. The vessels are all wooden,
and none of them can make more
than 10 or 11 knots an hour.   Contrasted with this, the British North
Atlantic squadron is made up of 11
vessels carrying 71 guns.   Of these
the Bellerophon is an ironclad with
guns throwing shot of 600 lbs., and
the Canada is a steel cruiser with
10 guns.   The vessels and guns are
of modern types, and one of them
would make short   work   of  the
whole  U. S. fleet if, unfortunately,
hostilities should begin.   Jt is not
ut all probable, however, that either
the fighting or fleeing powers of the
U. S, navy will have an opportunity
of being tested in connection with
'the fishery quarrel   Great Britain
does not feel disposed just now to
undertake a war with the United
States.     She is very much in the
same mood as Artemus Ward when
he declared himself ready to sacrifice the whole of his wife's relations rather tl*ian yield.
our influence in the iiiamigement of
the affairs of the province. It is
not difficult to perceive the real
object bur cotemporary had in view
when he brought this matter before
theHolice of his readers.    ' ;      ■ ;
Political Pointers.
It is not often that we are able
K-HI) "'."IHptl   "    >       if-      1(
to coincide with the opinions expressed by tlie Mainland Guardian.
In Wednesday's edition of tlmt
paper, however, we notice an article
on tho evils of allowing mainland
constituencies to be represented by
islanders, with much of which wc
agree heartily. The views there
expressed uro similar to those uttered by The Colt/maun several
weeks ago, and are sftch as ought to
. corainend'^hemselyei to the judgment ot erory voter. So long as
we permit persons to represent us
whose interests are at Victoria, so
long may we expect that our interest! will suffer. There is not a
single constituency in tho country,
we are quite sure, in which one
could not find residents who are
capable of making excellent representatives, aad there is certainly
nothing to be said in favor of outsiders. But our cotemporary says
some things in his otherwise fair
article whieh nre mis.ending and
which we cannot endorse. He mentions Mr. Wilson of Cariboo, Hon.
A. £. B. Davie of Lillooet, und
Hon. Jno, Kobson of this district
as island members who should not
be re-elected for mainland constituencies because of pro-Victoria sentiments. Two of these gentlemen
arc members of the government,
and the other has generally given
the government his support Why
does the organ mention them only
as examples of absentee members
who ought not to be re-elected?
Why does it not mention also Mr.
John Grant, the member for Cassiar,
who resides in Victoria 7 The organ shows clearly the dishonesty of
the motive by whioh it was prompted because ik counsels mainland
eleotors to reject only sueh nonresidents as arc favorable to the
government. It is not contending
for a principle, but seeks under the
guise of principle to accomplish u
political end. Moreover, the organ
ought to havo discriminated between
private members and cabinet ministers.    While it may be laid down
' as n wrong principle to elect for
mainland constituencies private mom
bers who reside on Vancouver
Island, such r rule could not be
applied to members of the govern
ment. The organ knows well enough
that u soon as a member accepts a
portfolio he must necessarily make
his residence at the capital, and remain there >o long as ho holds officp.
It knows welt enough that the Hon.
John  Robson is a mainlander, and
; the* < Ml 'inttrsft Ve».tfuch on
the, mainland,.ai, ever ,they were,
although hits'official duties require
him to reside at Victoria. If the
floctrino of bar cotemporary wore
applied without discrimination it
wo-ald eimply prevent Any mainland
representation in the cabinet at alt,
and tbis would undoubtedly weaken
Free Passes.
Senator Mclnnes has beon stirring up the sleepy   senate again.
On the 17th inst. he moved for the
names of all members of the senate
and house of commons who have
received free pnsses from tbe Canadian Pacilic or Grand Trunk railway.     Speaking to this motion he
said there seemed to bave been an
attempt made by tlie C. P. It. people to boycott all members who opposed their schemes.    Ho further
stated that before bringing forward
its last proposition, to give the government a certain quantity of land
in lieu of part of tho money borrowed, the C. P. R.  syndicate distributed free pusses to all members
of both houses who supported the.
government.     It  is   claimed   that
this was done, of course, for tlie purpose  of   influencing legislation   in
favor of the company.   And it is
quite   probable   the  claim  is well
founded.    No one will suspect tho
C.  P. R. or ony other ruilwuy cor-*
poratiou of distributing free passes
out of pure philanthropy, or from
personal  affection  for senators and
commoners.    The  passes  wero undoubtedly  placed   wliere it was believed they would do the company
the  most good.    The  subject is'it
legitimate  matter   for enquiry although the motion of Senator Mclnnes was promptly  voted down.
Senator Ogilvie, who bad evidently
been prepared beforehand by tbe
railway people, produced a letter
from Senator Mclnnes to Mr. Van
Horne which read as follows:
All the mombors of the commons utitl
tbe striate, with tlie exception i of the
undersigned, liave received half - fare
passes from all railway companies in
Canada—-and I understand a majority of
thein free passes over the Canadian Pa*
cific railway east of i'ort,Arthur. As I
am the only exception, wuuld like to
know the reason why.
The construction put upon this
letter was that Senator Mclnues
intended iu it to convey a hint that
a pass would be just as acceptable to
hiin us to any other member of the,
house. It is quite possiblo this construction is justified. If Mr. Van
Horne hud taken it in this light
and forwarded the senator a freo
puss we should not be surprised if
tbo matter of railway passes would
never have come up for discussion
at all. Be this as it may,-the principle remains tho same. Senator
Mclnnes may' have been prompted
by motives entirely selfish and unworthy, but the question be has
brought to public notice is ouo of
great concern and one that ought to
enlist the interest of every person
wbo desires pure and independent
legislation. If our law makers consent to allow a powerful corporation like the Canadian Pacific Hail-
way to influence their minds by
free pusses, how can we expect the
rights of the country to be protected when they come into conflict
with the plans of the company]
The practice of giving posses to
legislators or persons in positions of
public trust, by corporations who
arc constantly before the legislature,
is full of danger, und ought not to
be allowed to continue. Members
of parliament are now receiving an
allowance for mileage fur in excess
of the cost of going to Ottawa and
bnck, and there iB no proper reason
at all why this liberal allowance
should l>c supplemented. In some
of tho states there is a law which
prohibits legislators from accepting
such favors, and we hope such a
law may soon be found on the Canadian statute book.

Significant.— Tho large maple tree
near old Government House was removed 'lately by the penitentiary authorities, and under it were fuund some
Indian remains. There was a rude
coffin containing the bones of a child
and also the bones of a dog. The dog
and the child had evidently been placed
in the same box. Among the Esquimaux it has been customary always to
bury the favorite family dog with a
child. This is done because it is believed tho child may have some difficulty in finding its way to Paradise
unless guided by canine instinct. The
discovery under the big maple, which
is several hundred years of age, points
to identity between our Indians and
those of tho east.

Messrs, Powers, Gordon,, Morrison
(Montreal), Morrison (Ottawa,) Lemea-
surier, Sirdall and Mollis of Newfoundland, had an interview yesterday with
the Dominion minister of marine in regard to the speedy and practical development of the deep sea fisheries of the

inter of murine promised he would give
every assistance possible for the thorough examination of the fishing banks
and waters of the British Columbia
const. Several Newfoundlanders leave
at once for British Columbia, and if
the prospects are good and they report
favorably, at least four hundred heads
of families will go to our province from

Lao-sew*., May 26.—A very enjoy*

The programme opened at 10 a. m.

After returning from the bay the peo-
Sle congregated on the grounds of W.

the remainder of the sports, consisting of running, jumping, eto., were
participated in. The 200 yard race
was won by Indian Bill. J. Arthur
and J.. Charlton each won a 100 yard
race, and Jaok Green, who, by the
way, distinguished himself aa a jockey
in the early part of the day, ran away
from the small boys. In the evening
there wu a dance at the town hall,
which wu a brilliant success, as such
affairs here invariably are. ■ The hall
wu well filled, of course, with the proverbial "youth and beauty," and the
ladies looked, if possible, more than
usually charming in their light and
airy summer apparel, which our rather
backward Bpring haB only lately permitted them to don. As an outcome
of the horse racing a match for a considerable stake has been made between
C. F. Green's Lucy and J. Dooley'a

From Granite Creek-
Mr. W. H. Blake arrived froin Granite Creek on Tuesday, having left the
mines on the 20th. No claims were
working at tho time ho left, because of
high water. The freshet carried away
all the wing-dams, sluice-boxes and
flumes on tbe creek. It, is not'expected that the water will subside bo that
mining operations can be resumed before the 15th June, the date upon
which all persona holding claims must
take personal possession. A few claims
managed to get in somo work between
the frost and the flood, with results
that are said to have been quite satisfactory. There are probably between
400 and 500 white minors now on the
creek, and about 300 Ohinamen. There
is practically no work to be had, however, and more men are coming out
thai arc going in. As all claims must
be represented on the 15th June, it is
expeoted thero will be quite a rush on
that data, nnd claims not then represented will be liable to be jumped.
Provisions remain about former prices,

The most prevalent disease is said by
the doctors to be mountain fever. No
person should go to the mines before
the middle of June unless he is well
supplied with funds. Tho Hops trail
is open for regular traffic. With the
exception of about three miles at the
summit it jh free from snow, nnd in

tho snow is about 7 feet deep, and

We folks of Surrey are nothing if
not loyal. We celebrated lhe Queen's
birthday in fine style, and would be
well pleased if she had several birth*
days a yenr. Picnics were the order
of the day and even tne confirmed
mossback (of which we of course have
few) wu seen, clothed and in his right
mind, abroad in thc sunshine, taking
his basket to the sea shore or else
stretohed at full length under tho,/^L]
branches of a shady tree in the centre^wimi'
of hie happy family. We laid aside all
petty jealousies, even those ooacerning
the appropriation for the Nicomekl,
and mixed together as one or rather
three happy families. The peoplo of
Hall's Prairo had a picnic on the beach
at the mouth of the sinuous Campbell
Oreek; the Mud Bay folks and those
of the vicinity rusticated on t'he pebbly
strand of Blackie Spit; while'the. Clover Valley nabobs took their eue in
the shady grove of historic Waterloo.
Besides these, a few, thinking] that a
journey would better symbolize a holiday, attended the sports of Langley
and some straggled u far u Ladner's
Landing. That I should particularize
is not needed u all know the varied
round of feuting, fooling, flirting, fishing, sailing, and auch like amusements
that characterize picnics, and these
were very much like the common rnn
except perhaps a little better.—Mr.
Wm. Shannon of Clover Valley hu
sold out his ranch to Mr. Murphy, late
of Ontario, who hu removed here with
his family. The price paid I believe
was 14800. The extent is 240 acres
and ia to a great extent clear.—Mr.
Huck has moved into his new ihop and
looka well in hia new quarters.—Mr.
Keary, an employee of the Royal City
Planing Mills Camp on the Nicomekl,
sustained a severe injury. At latest
reports he wu doing well—Reports
are that some cattle of a vicious turn
of mind are roaming en Hall's Prairie
and are causing quite a stir in that
peaceful community.

Canada's Prosperity.
The London Standard of the 23rd
ult, in referring to the display made
by Canada at the colonial exhibition
saya; "Representing u it doea an area
of two aud a half million square miles,
a large space is necaurily devoted to
the Dominion of Canada. Her leading
exhibits are naturally in tbe main Agricultural. A fine trophy of corn and
fruit and vegetable produce at the hoad
of the court presents at one view the
prime elements of Canadian prosperity.
It may be safely assumed that one
effect of this exhibition will be to bring
into increasing prominence the vast
territory of Manitoba and the Northwest, uow being opened to the world
by tho Canadian Pacific Railway. The
corn, the fruit, and perhaps most of,
all, the l'or.ts, displayed from the newly
opened territories ue striking evidences of fertility. Some very fiuo
iiirricnli uml implements and machinery
of Canadian manufacture or* shown.
They nre so good as to render it doubtful whether the Canadian manufacturers need any longer the doubtful
Htgis of protection for these essentials
of their greatest industry. Of the
mineral produce British Columbia
lends a trophy in the shape of an obelisk showing the quantity of gold found
in the colony during the lut twenty-
five years. It is estimated at £10,000,.
OOOin value. Nova Scotia contributes a
smaller obelisk, showing that her yield
of gold hu been $7,250,000, or about
£1,450.000. In both theu lands, and
particularly in British Columbia, gold
mining has received an impetus recently. More important than the precious
metala is the reserve of coal, of which
Nova Scotia sends some fine samples.
At present the Dominion of Canada
drawa its supplies largely from the
United Statu, but the coal seams of
Nova Scotia at no distant date will add
largely to its wealth."

TO FMM ALL PARTS OF THE WNBA
Washington, D.C., May 17.—The
president has transmitted to congress a
report of the secretary of state with accompanying papers with respect to the
location of tho frontier line between
Alaska and British Columbia. Mr. Bayard says the British government is prepared to take part in the preliminary investigation of the boundary question, and
that nothing now delays action hut the
want of an appropriation by congress to
enable this government to take part in
the survey,   8100,000 iB asked for,
Pittsburg, May 18.—A special from
Washington, Peon., to theDwpalch snys:
After months of search, Professor Jonathan Emery of William and Mary College hu discovered the uerolite which
fell in Washington county on September
14, 1885. It wu found einlieded deep in
the soil on Frederick Miller's farm, two
miles north of Claysvillo. Professor
Emery says it is the largest aerolite on
record, and weighs fully 200 ton, Its
composition is chromium, nickel, aluminum, copper, magnesium and tin.
New York, May 18.- A London cablegram says: Edmund Yates, whoso political predictions have lately been notably
fulfilled, uys in this morning's World:
"I am enabled to announce on the highest authority that the defeat of the government is to be followed by tho immediate dissolution of parliament. Gladstone discussed the whole situation witli
the Queen at the audience which her
Majesty gave him at Buckingham Palace,
and he received her sanction for a dissolution, which I am informed he declared to
be the only reasonable and practical issue
of existing complications, and the only
one which can be expeoted to lead to at
least a temporary settlement for all parties. I understand that tho Queen was
ultimately convinced hy Gladstone's argument that the course which he proposes to pursue is the best under the
circumstances, and a complete understanding about the impending criai*** now
exists between her Majesty and the
prime minister. The uncompromising
attitude which Gladstone has assumed
during the last ten days is due to his profound conviction that the general election
will give him a working majority and
tliat his opponents -Conservative*-, Radicals or Whigs—will be smitten hip and
thigh."
Ottawa, May 24.—A topic of interest
to British Columbia jb the probable early
formation of "O" battery at Victoria or
Esquimalt. From what the minister of
militia states, it appears thnt communications have passed between the Dominion government and tho Imperial authorities, as the result of which tlie hitter
have decided to allow the men of the
naval reserve living in British Columbia
to enter the Canadian service ami to continue to draw their naval pension. It is
hoped that many of these men will join
the new battery and help to make it as
efficient, or even more efficient, than the
two eastern batteries.
London, May 25. — Mr. Uladstouo
went to Windsor to-day in obedience to
a Bummoua from the queen, uud conveyed to her the opinion of himself and
colleagues with reference to home rule,
and proposed the dissolution of parliament The queen intimated that slie
wu willing to meet the wishes of tlio
minister. Baron Rothschilds has sent
unionist!) £500 sterling. They are
ily cirtfhlatfng 'anti home rule literature. The government docs not promise
reconstruction of the home rule bill.
The upshot of to-day's meeting of the
cabinet is virtually a move in the direction of concession to disaffected Liberals,
.Several of the ministers urge that clause
24 of the home rule bill hn eliminated.
After a long discussion it wns decided to
leave the matter in Gladstone's hands to
deaf with as he might think fit. His
mind War Apparently quickly made up,
for early in the evening government
whips were instructed to summon rank
and Ole of the Liberal party to a general meeting on Thursday when modili*
cations on home rule will be announced
in orber to preserve the government from
defeat on the second reading. Morley
was alone in continuing to oppose tho
omission of clause 24 from the home rule
bill. Hartington'b sectiou maintain their
enmity to the bill and will not attend
the Liberal conference. Ministers are
confident that with tho accession of
thirty-five radical dissenters and doubt*
fuls they will have a majority of 40,
The bill will be dropped after the second
reading. It is probable that Parliament
will be dissolved in autumn. If the
Gladstone government be returned, the
winter session will be devoted exclusively
to discussion of the home rule bill. The
home rule debate was resumed in the
house of commons to-night. Viscount
Lymiugton, Liberal, said the bill was a
chaotic measure. Ireland required social
remedies. The agrarian question was
at the root of tho whole difficulty. The
attorney-general said that one rcasou of
the failure of recent Irish remedial legislation wu that it came too late; another
reason wu that the benefits wanted were
not what the Irish wanted, but what
parliament thought th.-y ought to luivo.
Alluding to Chamberlain's views, the
attorney-general said the bill would go
further and not retard federation. Protests about Ulster were mainly bnuaomb
and bluster, and the religious question
was merely a bogus bugbear intended to
frighten Ulsterites, whose alarm was
without foundation. The government,
he said, sought to substitute a real for
an unreal union. {Cheers.) Mr. Trevelyan onco again said that lie Wus nimble
to support the bill. He quoted an alleged
remark of Mr. Parnell's to thc utl'ect
that'lie "would not rest until the last
link that connected Ireland with Kngland 'had been broken." Mr. Parnell
here interposed, oxclaiimiiK, "This i*< not
the first time thot this calumny hat- been
uttered, I demand the dato ami place
of that speech." Mr. Trovulyon answered "Cincinnati; and if Mr. Parnell
consider* his wonts derogatory let him
withdraw them and express his regret."
Mr. Pnrnell retorted that Mr. Trevelyan
had uot given the date aud name of the
paper from whicli he quoted, He (Tar*

London, May 25.—Some of tlie members of the Inniskillen fasiliers stationed
at Aldershot attended a Conservative
meeting to-day at which some orators
savagely denounced home rale and described the Irish people as being unfit for
self-government. The fusiliers became
enraged at the speakers and attacked
them and their supporters. The polioe
were called on to protect the speakers,
whereupon a fight ensued between them
and the Irish soldiers, Comrades of the
fusiliers went to their assistance and tlie
polico were badly whipped and driven
away. They secured reinforcements,
and returning, suppressed the rioting and
arrested five of the soldiera.
St. Paul, May 25.--A Miles City
Pioneer Prem dispatch sayB: Many of the
most extensive stook growers of this territory are driving large bands of cattle
across the border, and are pasturing
them ou the Northwest Territory ranges,
which are leased from the Canadian government for a term of 21 years. A
party started from here this morning to
survey ranges in the Dominion for Montana cattle owners, No duty is charged
on tin- cattlo driven across to feed.
Canadian rangers are incensed against
the Dominion government for permitting
Montana drovers this privilege, and win
petition to revoke the law granting such
right.
St. Paul, May 27. —A Winnipeg
special says tbat in the legislature today
a motion of want of confidence in tbe
Norquay government wu defeated. So
hot was the discussion thereupon that
an opposition member crossed the floor
after the debate and called Premier Nor-
quay a d d contemptible liar.   The
bulky premier promptly hit his assailant
on the nose, and a fight followed. All
tbe members rose iu excitement and cries
of "shame," "order," and "let them fight
it out," drowned the voice of the speaker,
who was endeavoring to restore order.
The oppositionist rose and squared off at
the premier, and the two were dancing
mound each other when members inter*
pused aud ended the disgraceful scene.
The occurrence is the talk of tbe city.
London, Moy 27.--The general Liberal meeting, called by Mr. Gladstone,
assembled at the foreign office this after*
neon. The meeting wu well attended
by the premier's supporters, bat none of
tin known Hartington or Chamberlain
followers were present. Mr. Gladstone
wis cheered when he entered. He at
once approached the business on hand
and announced that the government decided to modify clause number 24 of the
home rule bill, excluding Irish representatives from Westminster. He did not
stito what the nature of tke proposed
modification was to be, but he did state
tint tho government decided to modify
the clause provided the bill passed its
second reading and was referred to a
select committee for actiou during the
autumn session of parliament Mr.
Gladstone declared he would, at the
autumn session of parliament, introduce
au amended Irish home rule bill. A
lumber of Liberal dissenters, who did
not care to risk compromising themselves
by attending the meeting, have hailed
with undisguised satisfaction the attitude
of apparent conciliation adopted by the
premier. These now openly proclaim
their intention to return to their party
allegiance and vote with the government
for the second reading. Among tho first
to announce their return have been John
Fletcher Moulton, Radical member for
Claphain, and Samuel Whitbred, Liberal
member for Bedford. Both were ad*
hcretits of Hartington before to-day's
meeting. Both have since announced
themselves as supporters of Mr. Gladstone [** |

Toroxto, May 23.-— For over tht*c<-

rale. Word was received by tbo Kiii-*|iU
ot Labor that omnibuBee from Khigato/i
for the ubo of street railway strikers
would arrive here between (I and 7
o'clock to-night, and a large crowd wetit
to meet them, aoeoinpanicl by a brass
baud. On their arrival Mie omnibuses
were driven slowly through tho principal
streets, the crowd gradually increasing
tn number, until nearly 3,000 persons
were following in procession. Every
street car met on the return was attacked
with bricks and stones. Passengers,
drivers and conductors were ejected, and
the wildest uproar wu kept up, tho
polioe being powerless to do anything.
Between thirty and forty street earn
were wrecked in this way, and arc now
lying in the company's shops, Such a
scene has seldom, if ever, been seen lu

Knights of Labor broken up the procession much more serious results would
have followed.

Speaking of the great central exhibi
bitten opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept.. the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
the most casual and careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company. This Is a separate building but a
little distance from the -south east of the
Main Building. This pavilion must be
about 60 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to all In broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of 68 Kinft-street
West, represents the company. Inside
no pains have been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit the Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of music Here are decorations, handsome pictures of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
f;enius and skill of our Canadian manu-
aoturers. Pianos and organs of every
style and artistic design are found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces the visitor at the extreme
end as he enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every stylo and design to suit the purchaser. The Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition held there tbe Company had just carried off the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This ia certainly remarkable, though
when tho rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable aa at first might seem.
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. Thc exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment he paid
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
at tbe opening of the London Fair. In
his address from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impe
tils Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, ami cited as an illustration of tlio wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ aud ?lano Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company)
•had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Our*
many,1 tl» very centreB of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skin and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest antl best
musicians, had declared further that the
instruments of this company were superior to any they had ever Been, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from auch a source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content.

The Confederation Lire.
The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the Boundncs-i of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
Income is sufficient to pay the death
claims--which in a company of tbe age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
.proud of. Thc nss ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there ia a surplus of $2S'2,109
over liabilities and capital combined.
The inoreaBfi in the assets in tho lost year
was ^200,31)0. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the tme polioy

OEMTLSMKN.-In presenting our report
for 1885, we l*g to state that It becomes a
necessity that provision should be made
for greater accommodation and more
funds, if tbb Institution Is to keep pace
with the growing requirements.
The Steward hoa performed hia duties
acceptably to the Directors, nnd the Hospital has been kept in as efficient c
Sltai has
ition as
the premises admit.
■no ourgeou has been attentive in tun
duties nno reports n large Increase in the
number of In-door and out-door patients.
The Directors notice that patient* from
all parte of the province seek admittance
at this institution, notwithstanding that
similar Institutions are located In at least
four other parts of thc province; and as to
the nationalities of the patients, thc registry shows that cltliens from all parts of
the world have been admitted.
A great number of Improvements have
been made during the year, A house has
been built for the Steward, by which the
up-stalr rooms of the Hospital are used as
fever wans.  The  mtndBHons of the
