PROVINCIAL LE8ISLATUK.
On Friday a lengthy debate took
Slaee on the subject of high schools.
Ir. Dunjmoir nid if the expenditures for education kept on increasing at the present rate it would soon
require half the nvenue for schools.
It %as necesaary to hsve free public schools, but he thought three high
aehoola in the province were not required. There were many helping
to pay for these high schools who
w«w not able to take advantage of
them. It would be better if those
who desired to give their ohildren a
high school education had to pay for
it—Mr. Semlin pitched into the
government on the conduct of the
educational department, and Mr.
Grant agreed with what Mr. Duns-
muir had said respecting high
schools.—Mr. Higgina aaid he never
heard eo unsatisfactory a speech
from Mr. Dunsmuir before. He did
not believe the people of tbe provinoe wished to do away with high
schools. Our young people muat be
given the same advantage aa the
young people of other provinces.—
Mr. Dunsmuir said there waa aome
talk of the high school at Nanaimo
having to be dosed on account of
the email attendance.—Mr. Theo,
Davie believed thero waa a good
deal of force in what Mr. Dunsmuir had said. Three high schools
in the province were unnecessary,
He was not in favor of making a
present of free education to those
who were able to pay for it The
increase in the expenditures for education was one of the reasons why
it became necessary to negotiate a
new loan. In 1878 the appropriation for education waa only about
140,000. Those who desired a high
school education for their ohildren
should pay for it—Mr. Bole said he
considered the principle adopted in
the province of establishing high
schools at the expense of the taxpayers to be permoioua. He was
thoroughly in favor of giving the
children of the provjaw a free common sohool education' but the present high sehool system was one.
whieh gave the well-to-do olaaa an
opportunity to rive their ohildren
what waa virtually a collegiate education, at the expense of the struggling settler. He did not think the
time of tbe house oould be better
taken up at aome future time, in
view of the great increase in expenditure for education, than in discussing this question thoroughly.—Hon.
Mr. Robion agreed with muoh tbat
had been said. When he had en-
deavored a few years ago to make
the high schools half fee and half
free he was met with a perfect
storm of opposition. The ground
he took then and the ground he
took now waa that the state had
fulfilled its duty when it gave a
good common school education.
Within a very abort time he was
convinced that our whole school
system would require to be considered and remodelled. The high
school at Nanaimo, he explained,
had been established under very
great pressure. He stated that he
believed a mistake had been made
when the high schools had been
made wholly free, and the house
would soon have to consider means
of checking the present increasing
expenditure for education. — Mr.
HigglnS strongly objected to closing
any high schools where they are required. Fancy, said he, a man who
has to work on the roads for (2 per
day and have to pay for the education of hia children!—Mr. Orr said
the high schools were very well for
the cities but they wen of little advantage to the country districts.-—
Mr. Prior had intended to bring
thia matter up if the senior member
for Nanaimo had not He had
been told that he would be killed
politically for all time if he did so,
but if he had to ait in thia house
with hia mouth closed and had to
vote against hia conscience he would
prefer to be killed politically. He
oould not let thia opportunity pass
without expressing his disapproval,
in view of the huge expenditure
under this head, of the system
which permitted people aa well able
to pay for the education of their
ohildren as he wu to give them a
better school training at the public
expense than probably any member
in tbe house had received.—Mr.
ladner pointed out that if people
living in oountry districta desired to
give their ohildren a high sohool
education thoy had to pay for their
board in the oity, when they wen
without the protection of a home.
—Mr. Andenon said if the high
schools wen made only partially
free th* difficulty waa to tell when
to drew the line. He thought
the house should have aome time to
consider this matter in order toflis-
ouaa it intelligently.—Mr. McLeese
was in favor of making the high
sohools self-supporting.—House adjourned till Monday.

A HOKMIU.E C-RIMK.
St. Lot'lH, Mar. 22.—A year ago
thia month oneof the'bloodiest tnur-
dera of human beings known wns committed near Eric, Kns. J. W. Soil,
a well-to-do farmer, and his whole
family, excepting one son Willie, a
boy sixteen years old, wero found
murdered, their hands being crushed
and their throats cut. Thore has beon
a great diversity of opinion as to
whether Willie Sell committed tho
murder. On trial there was no evidence as the Btate failed to find any
motive for the crimo. On the contrary, it proved that Willie was a good
boy ana that he and his sister were
uncommonly fond of each other. The
boy confessed last night that his father,
on the night of the murder, hod quarrelled with his son Watt, who struck
his father with the hatchet. Willie
obtained the hatchet from Watt nml
knocked Watt down. The mother
and sister came in to the room screaming, and Willie knocked them down.
In his frenzy he cut his brother Watt's
throat and then declared that if any
of the others came to life thoy would
disclose that he had killed Watt, so he
cut their throats. This corresponds to
the facts ns proven at tho trinl.
tub heuew.
London, Mnr. 22.—The naval review will take place on July July 23

GOLD ON THE UOL'NIURY.
Montreal, Mar. 22.—Word comes
from Ottawa of the discovery of a rich
gold deposit in British Columbia close
on the imaginary boundary line between that province and Alaska, which
may lead to serious trouble if the actual boundary is not defined before an
attempt is made to develop these
finds. In view of the discovery the
Domiuion government has decided on
sanding out a party to make a ecological survey of that part of the country.
An effort will be made in the coming
session of parliament to secure an appropriation to begin the aurvey of the
Britiih Oolumbia boundary, in the
hope that Ihe United States government will co-operate aud definitely fix
the line.

A CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY.
Baltimore, Md„ Mnr. 21.—Tho
Sun hn the following cablegram from
Rome: As anticipated, the Pope today approved of the plan of the Cath-
olio university, whioh is tn be located
in Washington. By his instruction
the secretary of tho propaganda waited
on him with n brief, fully, heartily,
and emphatically endorsing tliu project
and matter. Tho Pope confidently
avers the judgment of the bishops nud
places tbe institution directly and forever under the sole jurisdiction of tho
American hierarchy. In all tho test
of tho brief are used enthusiastic terms
of endorsement. The language of the
Pope on the occasion of a private ro-
ception to tlio cardinal*, aftor Thursday's consistory was:-"It will bo the
pnde of our pntificnto and tho glory
of the ohuroh in America." Tho brief
will be signed bythe pontiff nost
week. Bishops Irelind nml Konne
are delighto.1 at this manifestation of
cordial approval and will leave for
America as soon as the brief is received.

hoped to lay beforo the houso, before
Euter recess, a dispatch from the
United States government, relating to
the fisheries dispute
Parnellites are gratified at Morley's
amendment and heartily approve of it.
The amendment was drafted last week
by Merley, Harcourt, and Gladstone,
with the view of embarrassing tho
radical unionists, some of whom, conservatives admit, mnv possibly abstain
from voting. Lord Hartington is
aware of the government's plan nnd
has approved of it. Ho will doubtlos s

Tho whole affair was conducted in the'
moBt orderly manner. Bismarck said'
he rejoiced greatly in the spirit die-
played by them. He expected much
from tho academy of youth in Ger- ■
unny, as circumstances and times -vara,
serious. After referring to the dissolution of the Roichatag he questioned
many students separately aa regarding
their birthplace niid the studies they
pursued, the number of terms they
completed, and. the, corporation in
which they belonged, Ine Empress
also expressed Iier thanks for the ova*-.
tion. At one o'clock, when the Curl**

cheering, which continued so long tliat

The annual report of this solidly pte*-
perous Canadian institution will be foaad
in another column. Toe facts revealed
in tbe accounts and the Directors' nport
thoroughly justify the eeemmmt which
tho shareholders present bestowed snsa
the management. Thanks to the rasofata,
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon eitravafsat
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear tothe
total income tbe very small ratio of botween 17 and IS per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the fineness of
the Company is tbe fact that tha interest.
income is sufficient to pay tho daato
claims—which in a company of the age «<
tbo Confederation Life Is something to hg
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth In minute detail, and the taUsa
show that, after making allowance far al
possible coutiiigincieasod providing tor
every debt, there is a surplus of $2*7. IW
over liabilities and capital eombiaod.
The increase in the assets la the last year
was $260,390. So much for whet can to:
done by rigid adherenoe to what th*
President defined aa the true polioy of
the Company, viz:-"To keep its balaaoe'

TmeMar Ktealag. March W, UM.
We are aojfry to observe a marked
change for the worse in the Vancouver Niks of late. The other
day we drew attention to the unparliamentary language in which it
referred to the majority in the provincial legislature who refused to
t*m~te* Mr. Orr's bill, declaring
them to be "degraded banditti." In
its issue ot Sunday it publishes an
editorial article headed "Bobbie tbe
Boddler." This article is devoted
to Mr. Dunsmuir, and in it are
made use of the most ungentlemanly
and uncalled-for expressions. Mr.
Dunsmuir's particular offence was
an expression of the opinion that
Vancouver needed a severe reproof
for'ita shameful treatment of the
Ohinese. He had surely a perfect
right to express such an opinion,
and the same opinion is held probably by a large majority of the people of British Columbia. The language made uso of by the News is,
under the circumstances, disgraceful.
Some days ago in referring to tho
retirement from the bench of Judge
Greene, of the supreme court of
Washington Territory, we stated
that he retired with the confidence
and good will ot those whose good
will is worth striving for. The
Seattle Post of a late date pays a
vtitj... flattering tribute to the ex-
judge, and says: "Nobody professes
to boliove that during his long official career he has ever ceased to
strive to do right, as he saw the
right, or that he has ever knowingly
failed to measure out exact justice
between man and mun. * * * He
haa beon a student, too, of that
greatest of all books, the Bible, and
hia life allowed it. He has turned
ito pages and read its lines with
that earnest desire to understand its
great truths which is characteristic
of such men as he. In all things
ho has been a student. In all things
he has been a learner. He enjoys
the reputation of being the best
read man in Washington Territory,
and that reputation is one well
earned. In hia retirement from
judicial life, Judge Greene carries
with him the wishes of all people
for hia future success and happiness."
Much interest is felt everywhere
in Stanley's expedition for the relief of Emin Bey, who has been for
months besieged by hostile savages
in the heart of Africa. There is,
perhaps, no man living so well fitted
u Stanley for such an exploit. It
ia not a case in which military strategy and generalship alone are
likely to be called into exercise.
Win are thousands of savages in
the "region through which the res-
cuing party is to pass, who must be
conciliated rather than killed, and
Mr. Stanley's experience and tact
in this direction will be worth more
to him than a regiment of soldiers.
These dark-faced people are not
only hostile and warlike, but they
have an uncomfortable yearning for
human flesh as a choice dish at their
native feasts, and white men are
specially sought after with a view
to the gratification of this very ap
petite. There is a universal wish
that Stanley's illustrious carcass
may never grace the festive board
of an African prince, but that his
mission may be successful. Emin
Beys administration has been such
as to entitle him to the sympathy
of all the civilized world, and everywhere anxious hearts will be look,
ing for tidings from Stanley and the
dark continent.
We 'are informed that many of
the eleotors in this district are very
indignant at the course pursued in
the provincial legislature by Messrs.
Onr and Ladner, especially inasmuch
as they were the members who
moved and seconded the resolution
of impeachment against their col-
ltkgM the provincial secretary. Mr.
Ladtier waa elected as an indepen-
nent member, and some who supported hiin did so on the assurance
that if elected he would give the
present government an independent
support, But he haa been one of
thi bitterest occupant* of the oppo
siUoit benches, and his attitude toward! the provincial secretary has
been especially hostile and vindictive By placing himself in this
position he has accomplished noth*
!rgr for his constituency, but has
alMUedthe government and barred
himself from any support for which
otherwise he might reasonably bave
looked to the house. The opposition
. ol Means. Orr arid Ladner is so con*
ouously the result of personal
of H» provincial secretary
tt"«flhot be justified orex-
"' I'-fif ground of honest con-
if the present government

for these purposes §266,205! No
argument can stand against such
facts as these. We lenm that in
some parts of the district some of
those who supported Mr.'Ladner,
believing in his independence^ are
seriously disoussing tlio propriety of
giving a public expression of their
disapproval of liis conduct.
Miss Mary Campbell, Elm, writes:
"After taking four bottles of Northrop &
Lyman's Vegetable Diacovery and Dyspeptic Curo, I feel as if I wero anow person. I hnd been troubled with Dyspepsia for a number of years, and tried
many remedies, but of no avail, until I

GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF "GRIP" Is to set forth, in
ln an Impartial and Independent manner, the passing events of Canadian political and social life. Its Cartoons np-jak
more definitely and more pleasingly than
whole columns of editorial. In tills pungent, easily appreciable, and nrtlsHc style
of presenting ft subject, the wholo situation is revealed at a glance,. The succoss
of Grip shows how well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on tho passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than tho chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper*—
though the latter Is equal to that or any
similar publication on lhe continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for 1880. The old
cover Is to bo discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pnges, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—every number being so artist le-nliy
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on tho continent. Tho
advts. will bo compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar lm
provements will ho mnde as to the letterpress. A now and handsome desliniwlll
adorn tbe title pngo; while tlm Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements in the artlstlo department*.
The price of Grip will hereafter he $2 a,

COMMUNICATIONS.
Building societies.
Editok Columbian: Observing in
yuur valuable columns a few weeks
ago aeveral articles touching the formation of a building society, I would
ask the liberty of communicating to
your numerous readers through the
sssnt medium a few of' my ideas on
tlia subject. I beli.t* that a building
society here, if properly conducted,
would, do a vast amount of good to
the oity, and be a lasting benefit to
all concerned. What New Westminster, or any other city, wants is permanent population of working people,
and tha surest way tu seoure this desirable object is to insure for the.
workers an interest in tha place, viz.,
houses of their own. Besides relieving them of the everlasting drain of
rent, this wonld alio tend to -'mako
them better citizens. The mon who
hal something nt stake in a country is
ever ready to defend that country in
times of danger or invasion, but the
man who has nothing to lose except
his Ufa, unless he ia exceedingly patriotio, will seldom take very heavy
chances of losing that. All men who'
earn their living by their industry,
whether by wielding the pen or the
shovel, being agents in the production or exchange of lawful commodities, I term workers. Their Interests
ara identical, and they being the producers of all wealth, it follows that
the welfare of the' natidn depends
upon thoir welfares *■ "* n»« It from
the best authority that tha- decay of
nations has invariably been brought
about by the enslavement of toilers,
and a man without property or inter-
eat in his oountry is little better than
a slave. Now, one of the best ways
for the workers to acquire an interest
in.the oountry and reap the benefit of
their own industry is to co-operate in
building or other societies. It should
therefore be the endeavor of all who
have the true welfare of the nat.ulr at
heart, whether workers or not, to pro
mote sueh enterprises. Workers who
have no ties to bind them to any particular place when business gets dull
in their locality invariably leave for
aome mere favorable tela of operations, i. e., more favorable for the:
time being; but the general movement
to suoh points naturally has the effect
of causing another movement iu another direction. The consequences
are that the workers spend most of
their hard earninga in traveling from
filsce to plaoe, thereby enriching those
eeohea of society, railway and steamboat corporations; and although per-:
haps getting higher wages for a time,
the/are losers in the end, and seldom
if ever do aa well aa Ihe men who slay
in'one place, taking the bad times
along with the good, being literally
tethered to the locality by having no
nnt to pay. I am sneaking in general
of married and single men. (Single
men aa a rule hare more rent to pay
than married ones, if they could only
realise the faot.) 1 could say much
more in favor of establishing building societies, but the benefits to be
derived from auch a movement both
by the workers and the country ara so
apparent aa to admit ot no argument
I will not, therefore, trespass further
oh your valuable apace, nut wishing
every success to the promoters of this
praiseworthy scheme, and recommending it to the earnest consideration of
all, I am, etc. Am. Hamilton.

Accomplished His Work.
Mr. Henry Rosener, general manager of the Pacifio Postal Telegraph
Cable Co., accompanied by his private
secretary, Mr. Francis, sailed on the
steamer Oregon laat night for San
Fraacbco. Mr. Rosener hss been In
the Paoific Northwest since September
lut, giving hla pergonal supervision to
the construction ofthe niw lint front
New Westminster, B. 0., to San
Frinoitoo, by the way of Portland.and
hu suooeasfully accomplished one .of;
the most difficult tasks ever undertaken in this country sinco the completion of the great transcontinental
railways. .'The enterprise was commenced "at - a time in the year when
mw usoslly begin to house themselves
against the ilorms of winter, but Mr.
Rosener had the great work before
him, and ha did it. There wu no
cessation of hii labors from the day he
landed in Portland until the dsy he
departed, in the steamer last night.
What He hu done for the Northwest
the readers of the Newt have now sn
opportunity of seeing for themselves,
He hu constructed 1,100 milu of thi
most complete telegraph line in the
United States, the connecting link be*
twien the two gnat ooeana; he hu
given the people of th* Paoific cout a
connoting (Olograph and cable line,
making it possible for them to escape
from monopoly and extortion; and it
has bean done in such a quiet and unobtrusive way that many were not
aware that so great an enterprise had
beon accomplished. Mr. Rosener has
made host, ut friends in Portland »nd
all over the Northwest, who will si*
wlyi welomlie his return.—fVtfitiid

Thii. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing- in it from the following
FACTS:—
Tbe Security ottered to polioy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
woll-eBtublished lines, hence the polioy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
„ Its statements to the publio can be readily undentood, Its cash statement showing every Item of Income and how expends position liaaoertalned annually from
a detailed valuation ln whioh every Item
of liability Is Included.
Us progress has been unexampled In
the hfstory of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
yean, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
Its proflta are distributed upon an equitable Tttasis. The proflts to one clasa ot
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger proflts to any other class, wbloh
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

publishing coneem, controlled entirely by
those whose Individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of tho Mainland. Then* will he no
Blackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the1 establishment, and Its patrons nay rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely Independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of sneh schemes as
may be considered in the public Interest.
The concern is now entirely, separate trom
any other business, tha book Aid
stationery establishment in this oity
having been taken over by Mr. T. It.

an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare It asks that the Columbian be judged on Ita own merits and
supported only so long as ita polioy Is

sequonoe of this busineu ohange all accounts duo tho conoem must he settled
without delay so that the books of the
former oompany may be adjusted and
