It ii podtiraly UMttod that definite emngementi have been oompleted by tht Cunard iteunhip
compnny to the tnnifer of the
Bothnia, Gallia and Soythia to the
Pacific Ocean for service between
Vancouver, Yokohama and Hongkong. Ther «iU be lubaidiiedby
the Canadian government, and in
connection with the Canadian Pacific Railway will form a through
route for the trannortaUon of mer-
chaiKlise between China and Ameri-
01,-beeidei canying maiU Marked
for that route from the United
State» and Europe. The old atory
haa been dinned in our ean again
and again from 1868 to the present
day. Had we, fifteen yean ago,
posseised sufficient foresight and
broad public spirit to do what the
Canadian government is now doing,
a subsidised English marine would
not have swept our vessels from the
seas; we should not to-day be
obliged to rely upon foreigners for
the transportation of our commodities; our product! would not reach
other dimes in foreign bottoms; our
trade with South America would
not be by the roundabout way of
London and Liverpool; our iron ship
yards could not be counted on the
fingers of one hand—to-day a woeful possibility; the plant for the
building of ships of war would not
be an uncertain chance of the future; and the American sailor might
still hold that commanding position
which was his fifty yean ago, when
the stan and stripes might be found
floating in every important commercial port in the word. The Canadian government is, by ita pretent
aid to a new venture, establishing a
commerce with Ohina and the eut
which may never be turned from
the channel in which it is onoe successfully started, It ia a step whioh
may prove of vital consequence to
our Pacific coast ports and the transcontinental railways runnimg into
them, and when one realises how
our western harbor, are fitted by
nature for sheltering a magnificent
shipping, it is but to deplore the
mistaken idea of publio policy which
suffers othen to improve opportunities which have so long been open
to us.—Seattle Post

The increase of Wealth.
There wai no income tax in Britain when the queen ascended th*
throne. It waa only introduced in
1842 by Sir Robert Peel, and until
1854 the tax wu imposed only in
Great Britain. From 1865, however, we have the means of comparing the relative advance of wealth
all over the United Kingdom, and
the figure, are intemting. In 1856
the taxable income of England and
Wales waa X256.000.000. In 1885
it had risen to £533,000,000, showing an increase of 109 per cent,  In
1855 the taxable income of Scotland
wm £30,000,000. In 1885 it wu
£61,000,000, showing an incroan
of 108 per cent, And Inland,
which ii asserted to be «o poor, in
1855 had an inoome of £22,000,-
000, and in 1885 of £37,000,000,
showing an increase of 68 percent;
the total income of the United
Kingdom having increased in tbe
thirty yean from £308,000,000 to
£631,000,000, or in the proportion
of 105 per cent Capitalise the
different descriptions of incomes by
their respective value at at many
yean' purchase, and we have some
idea of the immense amount of
wealth it iliowi to have been created
during the lut fifty yean. But
with our own eyes we iee the increase of wealth in the inoreating
number of princely rasidences in
the metropolis and aU large town,
in the high prices which ttie works
of art of real value realise, in the
competition whioh ia shown for the
appropriation of any articles of real
worth now and again coming into
the market, and in the luxury indulged in by every one who aspire,
to a plaoe in the higher ranks in society. Trade hu been dull of late
yean, and may be that the annual
amount of savings ii not ao great u
it hu been, but it is connderable
notwithstanding. And whilst the
working and the lower middle claasae
hava increased their deposit! at the
savings banks from £18,500,000 in
1837 to £94,000,000 in 1885, to
aay nothing of tha large amounts
held bythe building and friendly
societies, the higher claatse have an
amount of banking capital as lane
u to becomes rati burden from the
difficulty of inverting it profitably.

WAKIJINU KUIWIA,
Berlin, Har. 7.—Much anxiety is
felt here sa to whether or not Russia
will allow thc elocution of the Bulgarian conspiraton to pasa unnoticed.
The deficit that will be caused in the
budget by the operation of the sep*
tennate law will be covered by a fresh
loan. All projects for fresh taxation
an postponed and the session of the
reichstag will probably terminate in
two months. Julinueke Zextuug warns
Russia that even German patience
toward her neighbor has limits and
says if Russia compels Germsny to
take into account the Franco-Russian
agreement let her beware lest she may
herself hate to cousder a hostile Germany.
THI IHPtBOH AMD THE POPE.
BiauK, Mar. 8,—The Emperor
William yeaterday received Herr We-
del Piedorff, president of the reichstag.
In the conversation whioh took plaoe
the emperor said he waa reluctantly
compelled to dissolve the late reichstag. Despite his explanation to the
niohstag of the superiority of Germany's neighbors over her in military
matters the opposition majority refused to sanction the military hill to
ths necessary extent and the reason-
able hope that the septennate term
would have been adopted after the
example given by Franco proved fallacious. It was more gratifying new to
cherish the hope thst the large majority in the new nichstag would accept
the bill at the outset Referring to
the attitude.'of the pope during the
elections ho aaid ha had already been
convinced ef the pacific disposition of
hia holinees and thst it was on this ec-
oount thst Germany had asked him to
act u arbitrator in the dispute with
Spain about the Caroline Islands. In
conclusion the emperor expressed a
hope that all ecclesiastical troublea between Prussia and the Vatican would
soon be peacefully and completely settled. In the nichstag today the septennate bill formally passed its fint
reading. Bismarck was present The
bill WUl be taken up for second reading to-morrow and the debate will
ensue. Herr Windtbont lssder of
the clerical parly, will then declare his
in relation to the septennate term.
Other party leaden have announced
their intention of voting as they did
when the bill was defeated in the late
nichstag.

COMMUNICATIONS.
Kenned* on Lord.
Editor Columbian: In your issue
of yesterday appsan a correspondence
from ths pen uf J. E. Lord of ihi.
eity. To those who know J. E. Lord
each a production i. no surprint, but
to a stranger who is uot acquainted
with the various phases uf political
chsrsotsr in B. 0. it would be very
misleading- Mr. Lord has been a
professed temperance mau and moral
reformer, but in the face of sll auch
professions we find him In thia political oonteet on the side of a whiaky-
ssllersihi. repreaentative at Ottawa,
and he says: " The present govern-
■ent hu received another auppcrtsr,
deaervsdlr, after all that it has done
fer British Columbis." And thsn he
goes on to vomit forth one ofthe most
venomous effusions against Senator
Mclnues that eould be imagined. I
have never for a moment doubted thst
Doo. Ohisholm would bs elected for
this eity snd distriot in preference to
aay man who hoisted the temperance
banner, because then have bean too
■any tomponnoo upinnta, and each
dmppointed u-mfd-M oandidate got
terribly tnubled with the sorehead
endemic, and none mon so than J, E.
Lord, Hence his vary bitter effort
again.! Senator Mclnnes tor overlook*

penal service ot three or mon yean in
grabbing stumps, ate., preparing a few
seres of comparatively sterile land for
crop, is then uked one dollar sn son
for tbe land whioh without his hard
work would not be worth anything.
On motion of Coun. Sinclair, seconded by Coun. Laity, it wu resolved
that the hardships endured by uttlen
on government land on account of the
reservation ot everything on the land
of auy value be brought to the notice
of the minister ot the interior, and to
advise him that the placing of an embargo on tho land of one dollar an
mn to the actual settler ie a great
dnwback to the eountrv aud is interfering materially with the Milling up
of tke wild landi.
On motion of Ooun. Docksteader,
seconded by Ooun. Sinclair, it wu resolved that the co-operation of other
municipalities interested in the administration of the publie. landa be uked.
It wu moved by Ooun. Sinclair,
seconded by Oonn. Doekitnder, that
whenu ample time has bun given
for an answer fnm the minister of
railway, respecting the river road; be
it resolved that the clerk communicate with the government agent and
inform him that legal proceeding, will
have to be instituted against the government if the nad complained of is
not put in proper shape. This slap is
necessary to uve tke corporation from
being proceeded against by ntepayen
who lutein inconvenienoes on account
of the destruction of the road by the
nilway contractor.   Oarried.
The following orders were issued;
J. M. Webster, thne .dsys' work, 96;
John MoKenney, urvicea, 119.20;
John Penberthy, auditing account.,
17; Wm. Hampton, road work, fl;
D. 0. Webber, expensu, $11.60; E.
Mohun, balance for map, 15.
Ooun. Docksteader suggested that
some ution ahould be taken by the
oouncil to urge the nilway oompany
to build a pnper fence along tha line
of nilway within the municipality.
Coun. Sinclair remarked that lumber for building the fence wu now lying st Port Hammond, and that likely
the fence would soon be built
On motion of Coon. Sinolsir, seconded by Ooun. Dockstesder, it wu
resolved that Ooune. Dawson and
Ferguaoii be notified that if they continue to absent themselves from the
council board without the production
of aatiafactory eicuae proceedings will
be taken against them u provided in
section 47 of the munioipalitiN aet of

Tucadar Evealag, Marcli 8. last.
Lulu Island Lund Case.
Not long ago thore *.vas brought
up in tho house ft question relating
to sec. i, block 4 north, range 7
west, Lulu Island, and in the debate that followed some very uncomplimentary things were said by Mr.
Bole. It seems thnt when tho reserve was taken off that lot by tho
government, Mr. J. 0. Jaques, of
this city, applied for permission to
purchase the lot, and his application
was refused Mr. Bolo wns then
employed, and un action entered
to compel the chief commissioner to
issue a pntent. Tho whole correspondence has been printed fortho
information of tho Iiouse, and as it
is a matter of interest to many of
our readers we slmll give a brief re
view of tho correspondence. The
lirst letter is from Hugh Boyd, dated
8th July, 188G, and addressed to
Hon. Mr. Robson. Mr. Boyd sends
nn application to the chief commissioner for permission to preempt
or purchase "the lot I was talking to you about," meaning the
lot in dispute. On the 31st August the government agent at this
ciiy writes the chief commissioner
that an upplicntiou had been received
for this lot from H. Youdall, who
proposed to settle thereon live or
six families of fishermen'from Newfoundland; but ns the land was reserved the agent asks for instructions. In reply to this letter the
surveyor-general, under date of Sept.
lst, advises the government agent
that a notico will appear in the
next issue of tho Gazette cancelling
the reserve, and that in three months
it would be open to purchase; but
no sale wns to be mado until the
agent had further instructions from
the head ollice. On the 24th Sept.
D. S. Milligan applies for permission to purchase the lot, and re-
ceivos notice that his application
has been filed. On tho 18th Oot.
Milligan writes to Hon. Mr. Robson
and says: "Mr. Sexsmith told me
he had a talk with you, ond you
said that iu caso those parties did
not carry out their ngrccmont, the
only alternative would be to put up
the lund for public sale to the highest bidder." Nov. 16th Milligan
notifies the government agent that
he has made improvements to the
value of about $500 on the lot in
question, and asking the fact to be
recorded so that when sold he would
receive compensation. On tho 29th
Nov. the surveyor-general instructs
government agont that the lot would
l,o offered for sale by public auction
about the 1st Marcli. Dec. lst. W.
N. Bole, on behalf of J. 0. Jaques,
telegraphs the chief commissioner
that he had tendered purchase
money for the lot that morning, but
it was refused, aiid he asks that in
instructions,may be given at once,
as he considers himself, entitled to
the land, being first applicant. To
this tho chin/ commissioner replies
that the lot will bo sold nt auction.
Dec. Snd Mr. Bole, attorney for
Mr. Jaques, writes to the chief commissioner claiming the lnnd for his
client. In this letter he states,
among other things, that until the
application of Mr. Jaques tho idea
of selling the land by auction "was
never once thought of." Evidently
Mr. Bole was laboring under a misapprehension, as the foregoing extracts abundantly show. He further,
says: "The position taken by your
department in this affair leads Mr.
Jaques to infer thut crown lunds
when offered for sule are not open
for purchase to all alike, but are
subject to certain implied reservation! in favor of government supporters." He then applies for per
mission to ground a petition of right
so as to test tho matter, mid hopes
that in tha interest of fair play the
government .will not stifle enquiry.
The government, apparently, had no
intention to stifle enquiry, for permission wus promptly given to take
the matter into the courts. On the
. 7th of December Mr. Youdall looms
. up again, and expresses surprise at
being informed that the land which
the chief commissioner "had promised to give to a fow Newfoundland
families wus ordered to lie sold to
the highest bidder." Mr.* Youd '11
intimates that ho is still quite prepared to fulfil the conditions upon
which the land was to be surren
dered, and had lieen waiting pa.
tiently until the three months had
elapsed, To this letter the chief
commissioner replies on the 13th
December, as follows: "Not having
heanl anything from you since our
conversation respecting the settle
ment of sundry Newfoundland tish
ermen and their families upon sec.
4, block 4 north, range 7 west, Lulu
Island, I naturally concluded you
had abandoned the scheme. If,
however, tuch ia not the case, I beg
to assure you the government is prepared to carry out the proposed
agreement with you; otherwise, as
then ara aevenl applicants for the
purchase ot the land in question, it
will be neoessary to offer it at publio auction." Thia comprises the
cue. It only remains to be added
(hit tha petition of right applied
for by Mr. Bole on behalf of Mr.
/aquas was grounded, and the case
oame before tho supreme court at
Victoria on Friday. Mr. Bole and
Mr. W***-*«W-wforMr.-riqui»,
and Mr. InSng for the orown (rep-
resentod by tho chiof commissioner).
Judgment wm gi*«- '* 0* "n™-
So far as we are ablo to judge from
information contained in the published correspondence, the conduct
bf the government in this matter
has been .perfectly straightforward,
and the insinuations of double-dealing and favoritism made in*Hhe
Iiouse and outside wero entirely
groundless.
Mr. R. A, Harrison, Chemist and
druggist, Dunnville, Oat., writes: "I
can with confidence recommend Northrop k Lyman'. Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptlo Curo fer Dyapeptia, Impure
Blood, Pimples onthe Face, HilimisncsB
and Constipation— auch cases having
come under my personal observation."

The Late Election.
Editok Columbian: The general
result of the recent election wss of
ooune snticipated by everyone at all
oonvsrssnt with present existing conditions and the various faotor. aud elements entering into the contest; but
thst Hr. Ohiaholin'a majority ahould
hava been ao Urge would scarcely hare
been predicted. As there muat be a
rssion for everything, one naturally
inquires, What is tho reason lying behind this result? In thia instance
there sre doubtlea, a multiplicity of
reasons, and it would be a matter of
considerable difficulty to give eaoh
it. due weight and importance as a
faotor of the whole. I ahall not trespass on your apace by al tempting auoh
a task. Permit me tu notioe briefly
a few of the more obvious point.': In
the first place, Mr. Chisholm i ia un*
doubtedly personally popular in the
oily and di.trict, and suoh popularity,
while not necessarily predicating anything as to a man's titnese for any po-
sition, goes a long way With the Ignorant, the indifferent, ,th» unthinking
and the indolent It muat be admitted, too, aa demonstrated again by
thia election, that in Britiah Oolumbia
we are very far behind in temperance
and moral sentiment. The long-continued and energetic canvass mado by
Mr. Chisholm and his friends, together
with their indu.triou.ly circulated
one-tided version of thing., and the
faot that Mr. Trapp waa nut fairly in
the Held until after nomination day,
alao, no doubt, played an important
part in the eleution. And, lastly,
owing to an unfortunate combination
of circumstances—principally through
luck of time—Mr Tripp's candidature
aa the nominee of iho temperance aiid
moral reform' puny wa, slightly irregular, thereby furnishing theae who
held their principle, by a vory .lender
thread with another welcome and
plausible pretext for enacting the role
of sorehead, etcetera. It will be well
for real temperanoe reformer, to view
the recent election from s reasonable
and diapaasionate standpoint, with ths
objeot of gaining lessons for future
conduct. The effort made by a writer
in yesterday's Columbia*! to import
party and politics! question, into the
discussion, hia alaviah and (wilfully)
ignorant adoration before the unworthy ahrine of the "present government." and hi. aplenetio and senile
tirade ngainst Senator Mclnnes,
coupled with hia uncalled-for and in
■ulting reference to Mr. Trapp, are
alike too absurd tu merit more than a
paaalng notice, and constitute a rery
tranaparent and unsuccessful attempt
to drag a " red herring serosa the
traok." It would dispel muoh obati-
nate ignorance and reault in far more
intelligent action if eaoh ol the electors were pos.ea.sd of one-Kilt' the Senator', iu.ti-ht into Dominion polilica.
As regard. Mr. Trapp, it ia to be regretted, for the aake of the diatriot,
that circumstance, were au unpropi-
tiou. for hi. return; he would have
made a creditable repreaentative in
every reapect, which, I regret lo .ay,
cannot be unqualinedly affirmed of
Mr, Chiaholra, onr in.mb.r-.leot. (I
refer, of course, to hi, meowy' stti
tude on the question at tempmnm snd
moral retorni.) With your permission,
Mr. Editor, I shall st some future
time submit my humble views salo
the lesions to be learned from tba late
oontest and the measure, to be adopted in order to better further the oauae
of reform In the future.

which he fonnd on his farm at Langley a few days ago. The Btone was of
a soft texture, and in Its centre had
been hollowed in the shape of a shallow cup, aud had keen used for the
purdose, apparently, of. eompouhiing
medicine. -At one side of the'cup
projected the figure of a bird, the
features resembling those of a parrot,.
and on the outside of the cup were
represented the bird's wings, The
other side of the cup was' -carved into
the shape of a wizard* head, and there
was also tho face of an Indian. This
curious stone was probably used by
the medioine man, and has been lost
while some of the aborigines had been
encamped in that region.
