NUMBER 130
9*ilj) grttislt Colnmbian
Friday Evening, Heeember SI. ISM.
Mr. Powderly has small sympathy
with anarchists and bomb-throwers.
In issuing his order to the Knights
of Labor "to collect no more money
for the condemned imarchists," he
only seconds the voice of honest
labor in every, community.—C&ica-
go Paper.
lhe Severn etunnel, which has
just: been opened for passenger traffic, is oloae on four and a half miles
long,"Wo^«ui a grafter milBs'of
which is under the bed of the river,
There are, ordy. fpur. longer, tunnels
in the world. The ventilation of
this immense length of tunnel is
desoribed as simply perfeot, the
machinery provided' for the purpose
keeping up a constant breeze of
perfectly pure air.
The Tltfte Question In Wales.
The significance of the arrest of
five Welsh farmers because of their
refusal to pay titho3, cabled to the
United States, lies iu the fact that
it is related to a movement or organized effort to resist the entire,
tithe system, The great Irish disestablishment ailt of Gladstone, which
he introduced into the house of com
uipns Moroli 1, 1869, went into
eflect Jan.' 1, 1871. Since that
time the disestablishment of the
Church of Scotland and the Church
of England has more than ever received serious consideration by the-
powerf aland progressive dissenting
or noncomforiuist bodies of the
kingdom. The repeal iu 1874 of
the obnoxious patronage act, by
which'the "people or congregations
had no voice in the selection of tlieir
spiritual leaders' or ministers, was
one of the direct results qf Irish
disestablishment. The established
Church of Scotland, or thb Auld
Kirk, as it is still affectionately
called, is in the minority ai to ministers and members ns compared
with the dissenting bodies, and its
days appear to be numbered. The
numerical strength of the Chuich
of England as compared with dissenting bodies may show somewhat
the strength of publio sentiment in
these regards. There are about
13,500 benefices, and about 23,000
of the various classes of the clergy.
It is estimated that the church's income is from £7,250,000 to £10,-
000,000,' or \ from $36,250,000 to
150,000,000,: or an average of from
11,576WIS 174 a year. . It is not
easy to come to the exact strength
of the adherents or members, be-
cau • i. of the fact that tliere has
bee., no religious census officially
taken in England, but the church
population is estimated at over 13,-
500,000, with 6,200,000 church sit
tings available. The entire popu
lation at the last census wus in
round numbers 26,000,000, so that
with the population of Wales the
ohuroh membership claimed, in the
absence of a proper census* is less
than one-half the entire population
of England and Wales. The'significance of the arrest of the Welsh
farmen is, as we have said, that it
clearly indicates thd growth of' u
movement against the tithe system.
The Church of England is supported
by tithes, in 1836 commuted into a
money tar, by an income from its
real estate, and by fees or voluntary
contributions. By the law of 1836,'
and other statutes enacted subsequently, all tithes were commuted
from a tonth of all the produce of
tlie land into the form of a money
rent charge on the land in the kingdom. This changes or varies annually, according to the average price
of produce for the preceding seven
years; it is still culled a tithe, but
it is by no means now so much as
a tenth of the land's income, It is
levied on all land-owners alike,
whether they are members of the
Church of England or: not, aud is
collected as a part of) the national
revenue. Those who do not belong
to the land-owning classes aro not
taxed, at least directly, fpr church
support, but tliere has been and is a
strong presumption that it has ultimately come out of the pockets of
the people. I The publicity given to
the Welsh incident well illustrates
the change which has been wrought
ln Great Britain during the past
fifty years. It is not venturing too
far to suggest that the distraining
of five Welsh unnamed fanners may
be the immediate precursor of disestablishment in England and Wales
as well as in Scotland.— Cliicaijo

The Dying Year.
AU civilized nations have adopted
some particular year as a chronological basis.    The Romans adopted the
yoar and day on which they believed
Rome to have been founded.   The
Greeks had their Olympiads, each
measuring four years, and any particular  date   was - denoted by the
number of the Olympiad and the
number of the  year in it.     The
Mohammedans date from the flight
of Mohammed to Medina—the He-
giro—which took place 15th July,
A. D. 754.   The Julian Period is a
measure of timo proposed by Joseph
Saoliger.   It consists of 7,980 years,
which comprises the interval after
which the sun, moon and earth will
come round to exactly the same position as at the coniii.enceraent of
the cycle.'   The Julian period began
4,713 years beforo the dawn of the
Christian era, and 1,384 years must
come  and  go ere it is completed.
Tomorrow we shall be ia the Ohris
tian era (A. D.) 1887, Soman year
2640, Mohammedan  era  (A. H.)
1303, Anno Mundi (popular chron-
olgy) 5891, Julian period 6579.   As
the year-wilfhave taken its departure ere this number of the Oomjm-
iiian reaches all its subscribers, a
brief retrospect may not be without
interest.   Every year is eventful,
and 1886 has not been less so than
many of those which" preceded it.
There, has been no great war, although the din of battle has been
beard in many quarters,    Britain's
arms have prevailed, and Burmah
has been annexed to the empire on
which the sun never ceases to shine.
During a  great part of the year
Europe has been (politically) like a
volcano on the eve of active eruption, arid every moment one might
be looking for an outbreak.   The year
closes with the relations among the
great powers so strained that they
are liable to instant rupture.   One
of the greatest disasters of the year
was the   Charleston  earthquakes,
when about $5,000,000 worth of
property was destroyed.    Although
cholera   has   been scourging some
parts of Europe, its ravages have
not been at all as serious as most
people anticipated, and fortunately
it  lias  been prevented from cross
ing the Atlantic.     The British empire  has  enjoyed peace, although
British armies have been to some extent employed in hostilities outside.
The great question that has agitated
the minds of the Britisli people during the year has been the Irish question.   It was this that defeated the
Gladstone  administration,   and  it
will probably defeat the Tory administration as well. The year just closing has  been an eventful one for
Canada.   Political  excitement has
run high, and party relations have
been greatly disturbed.   The signs
of the times lead one to suspect a
political revolution at the next general election.     British   Columbia,
among other provinces, has passed
through an election campaign during the year, in which the govern
ment was sustained by a large majority.    The year has been one of
general prosperity  throughout the
province, but the event which will
occupy the most prominent place in
the provinoial history of the year
is the completion and opening of
the Canadian Pacific Railway. This
great national highway, the longest
and most extensive in the world,
binds together the provinces of the
Dominion and places British Columbia in a commercial position whicli
otherwise she could never have occupied, tn as'far as'the city of New
Westminster is concerned the year
has been one of great advancement.
From a statement published in another column it will be seen that
the   buildings  and   improvements
made- in tlie city Ure of the value
of £250,000, whicli  is probably a
low estimate,    This large addition
to our city has been due partly to
the completion of railway connection,, which is a guarantee for tho
commercial    future    of   tho  city.
Among other improvements worthy
of'speoial'mehtion is the connection
of this' city with tho postol-union
telegraph  system,, giving   us  still
greater   facilities   for  intercourse
with the outer world, and the establishment ef gas, works for lighting
th.isei)Jfl' * The extent of municipal
improvements   has been comparatively limited, because the expen
dituresin copnectjon with the railway' nave been very" heavy.    In
addition to the daily train and the
daily  mail, (his city has made a
further advance during the year in
tne establishment of a daily newspaper.,'by means of which our citizens have received the daily news
from all parts of the world.   The
year, 1886, therefore, closes upon us
with a most satisfactory record, and
we may eater upon 1887 with hopes
large and unclouded.,    ,

Splendid Record for 1886.
Orer (250,0M Expended on Improvements During the Tear.
The building improvement! of New
Westminster have been more marked
this year than any in its history. A
new life having been infused into tho
old capital by reaion of iti connection
with the greatest railway system of
the world, its citizens have been encouraged to look forward to a bright,
future, and have gone iiito improvements of an extensive and purely metropolitan character. The effort has
not only been to make buildings of
fine dimensions and substantial qualities, but of beautiful proportions as
well. In this tha churches have taken
the lead, and have shown an example
whioh promises to lead to splendid results in the near future. The dwellings erected during 1886 are also in
advance of previous yean as to size
and beauty of design, and will no
doubt lead to a most desirable rivalry
aud the adoption of most modern patterns. An important and perhaps the
most conspicuous, improvement is the
construction of the gas works, whioh
necessitated the expenditure of a large
amount of money. Together with the
railway it has wrought a change upon
the complexion of affairs whioh is noticeable on every hand. The reporter
has gathered the following particulars
respecting the most important improvements, which are probably pretty
nearly correct.
THE N*W HOSPITAl,
Foremost among the buildings of
the present year standi the sisters'
hospital, erected on a beautiful site on
Agnes street, in the esstern portion of
the city. It is a wooden building of
four stories, upon a stone foundation,
and baa a capacious basement. Its
dimensions aro 00x46 feet. . At either
end porches 8t32 aro attached to each
storey, where patients can lit and take
the air in fine weather. It conlains
about 50 rooms, with closets, pantries,
dumb waiters, and every other convenience that could be desired.: The
heating will be done by steam from
the basement. The upper stories are
reached by flights of stairs at either
end of the building. From the cupola
on the roof a magnificent view of the
eity and aurrounding country ia obtained. Every house in the city ia in
sight, and the Fraser delta, Semiahmoo Bay, and a portion of the Gulf of
Georgia are sp.ead out boforo the eye
in one grand panorama. The exterior
of the building is painted a light itone
oolor, with dark trimmings, and presents an elegant appearance. The
hospital was built,by the Sisters of
Charity, an order whose one, mission
aud work is to nurse the sick. It ia
the fourteenth nf t'i • kind, which has
been erected on the coast, Ihe others
being in Oregon and Washington Territory. The headquarters of the order
ia at Vancouver, W. T; Mr. T. McKay, who also ereoted the convent;
the finest building in the city, is the
contractor for the work. The cost,
when completed, exclusive of the furniture, will be about 810,000. The
hospital will likely be opened in February. ;
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.
This building whioh has been completed during tho presont yenr, is one
of tlie prettiest churches in the provinco, It is 00x38 ft. with a 40 foot
ceiling and a tower 160 ft. in height.
Situated as it is on a choice location,
Blackwood st., it is an ornament in
itself and an adornment to the ciiy.

Mr. Alexander Robinson, of Exeter,
in writing about one of the most popular
articles, and one that has done more good
to the afflicted than any other medicine
has during the short time it has been in
existence, says: "1 have used four bottles of Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and have
been cured of Dyspepsia that troubled
me for over ten years. Part of that time
I had it very bad, and I was at considerable expense trying to get relief; but
this excellent medicine was the first and
only relief I received."
Onr Lumber Hills
AN IMMENSE BUSINESS AND GREAT EXTENSION DURING TNE YEAS.
The largest lumber manufacturing establishment in the proviuce is tho Royal
City Planing Mills Company of this eity.
Daring the year 1886 this well-known
corporation has fully trebled its producing capacity and manufacturing plant,
untill all the latest improvements in ma-
chinery and tools are to be found in its
mills and factories. With a frontage of
over 1320 ft. on thc Fraser river, and a
depth of water at their docks sufficient
for. any foreign vessel, tbey also have
ample railway sidings, running. around
and through their ya.'ds. During the
year they have remodeled their two
large steam saw mills and equipped them
with new boilen, engines, and ttie latest
kinds of sawmill machinory. They operate .two large steam .sash and door
factories, equipped witii the most improved sash and blind machinery, diagonal door planer, band and scroll saws,
eto. They operate two lath mills of
great capacity, a large shingle mill, and
k box factory with a capacity of 200,000
salmon cases yearly, besides lacking
oases, tea chests, etc. Their ' machine
and boiler repair shop is of the most
complete character, ana they are building new ship ways to accommodate the
Increasing demand for the marine repair
work of thii favored section. Th'-y run
ten large and small planing and matching machines, and use nine steam dry
kilns. They have three steamers and a
flee, of about twenty scows and barges.
' They operate, fully ten logging camps
and employ in all their varied establish,
ments from 400 to 600 men. Their oper
at ions are characterized by a completeness that is unequalled by any of the
hitherto better known mill companies of
the east. Owning their .own timber;
lands, cutting their owu logs, and towing with their own steamers, they man
ufaoture every known form of building
material. A glance at the following Hat
of their ordinary product will surprise
any eastern mill-owner: Dimension timber, fencing, stock boards, flooring, rustic, siding, ceiling, wide shelving, coun-'
ter tops,- clear spruce, flr, cedar and
white piuo boards and plank, sawn and
split shingles, shakes, laths and pickets,
salmon boxes, box shooks, net floats and
trays, doors, windows, blinds, frames,
mouldings, brackets, seasoned finishing
lumber, stair building, railings, balusters, plain and fancy newel posts and all
kinds of turned work, ship timber flanking and edge grain deck plank, cedar
boat lumber and scow lumber, large timber for factories, wharves, bridges, etc.
Confined to no market, it may he said
that from their location on such au exceptionally fine fresh water harbor as
that of 'New Westminster, they
not only command tho local market of the rich " delta of the
Frasor" but also all interim points along
the line of the' Canadian Pacifio, and
from their wharves can send vessels ts
any port on the globe.
So large is their owu use of sugar, Hour,
ground barley, logging camp equipment
and supplies: boom, and dog chains, steel
falling chains, cross-cut saws, Irou, steel,
pipe fittings, boiler fitting., ko., tc,
that they import the articles dircot, either
by vessel or carloads, and without soliciting (trade they have become known as
oneof the cheapest sources of supply.
. Their stook bf glass exceeds any in the
province aad they are now receiving by
every vessel complete assortments, in
size and quality surpassing probably anything ever handled in this country.
Crystal and sheet glass, store fronts, colored, enamelled, ground, aud cathedral
glass, can always be obtained from them,
and instead of sending orden to San
Francisco, New Westminster will now
become the wholoaate depot for glass supplies.
Their rapid development demonstrates
the exceptionally flue position which Now
Westminster offers as u manufacturing
and distributing center. It may lw stated' here tbat the company alio own and
operate extensive milts and factories in
the very heart of the new city of Vancouver.
Mr. John Hendry is manager of the
oompany aud Mr. David McNalr secretary.
THE BRUNETTE SAW HILL CO.
This company, though not entering
so largely, into business as tho cor
poration above referred to, have beeu
doing a remarkably thriving and prosperous business during the paat year
and have materially increased their
producing capacity. While taking advantage of the large local trade which
the position of this city affords thoy
havo commenced shipping largely to
points along the Canadian Paoifio Railway. The mill during 1386 has boon
running full time una has turned uut
groat quantities of lumber of nll tho
grades Known to the trade, The output for the year has been six and a
half million feet, which is certainty a
very creditable showing. The Brunette mills are equipped with every
modern facility for doing business,
and ara capable of. unlimited extension. Mr. H. L. DeBeck is the manager of the company.

larger amount of bank capital than at

with $145,782,377 for November last

against (220,037,857. Discounts to
thu geneml public have increased (10,.

of the statement is that overdue debts,
secured und unsecured, have decreased ubout a million and a .'quarter;' circulation hns incrensed n million and a

circulating medium is needed to carry
on the ordinary business of the country.
Tho deposits are five millions more

MORNING  DESPATCHES.
Press TelcRraius.
Nbw Yokk, Doc. 30.—A London
cablegram says: The storm has entirely
severed telegraphic communication
with the south of England and tho
continent. • With so many ugly rumors
afloat, much anxiety is felt as to the
courso of events whioh are believed to
be taking shape pretty rapidly.
A cablegram to the Star says: The
cabinets of the great powers for the
sake of peace and in order to bring the
Bulgarian difficulty to a olose are arranging to accept the candidacy of
Prince Nicholas David Ovitza, of Min-
grelia, ler the throne of Bulgaria. The
British'and German governments have
given tnOTconserit to''this.
The Star's correspondent cable says:
Sir Michael Hicks Beach has accepted
the position of chancellor of tlie exchequer in place of Lord Randolph
Churchill. The cabinet has settled to
meet parliament and to carry on the
business of the country if the Unionists
will give pledges of support. If not
there will be an appeal to the country.
Sak fWcisco, i>ec. 30.—Michael
Davitt, the well-known Irish home
rule leaguer was married this morning
to Miss Mamie-Yore at Oakland. The
couple leave early next mouth for Ireland. 0)i £'j   '■
'GttUki, pio. 30.—A riffles', Ottawa, specifcl says^the result of the elections for the provincial legislature in
Outario has astounded every one and
the excitement at the Dominion capi-
tal if fettene-*v. Ofie of tho most sig-
int feattrfee of the result is the
loving of ul doubts as to the defeat
'■k Jno. tbodonalil at the approaching Dominion election. Sir John's
only hope has vanished as will his gov
ernment when the general elections
are held.
Loipoji, „Deo. 30.-^The Paris correspondent J of the time's says ho has information from an undoubtod source
that Russia and Germany sighed a
direct alliance a fortnight ago. The
Car, adds the correspondent, was de
cided in taking this course by the attitude manifested towards Russia by the
Count Etloiioky, Austrta-Hundariau
minister of foreign affairs, and by the
expectation that Flouent would be
made prime minister of France.
The Auditor.
4jftB %alter J.' Walker,5 who has
been appointed to audit the city accounts, writes to us at follows:
Ed. Daily Columbian: In my
early days many men with whom I
was associated were called " gentlemen
ol the press," aud I believe we deserved the title. Latterly, however,
another term has ariaen:—*' Cads of
the press." I was reminded of this,
when a paragraph in your contemporary with the heading as above was
shew* to mo. It must have been
published by misadvertence. I hope
it is not possible that my fellow-citizens of New West minster, will support
or even ToteraRTa '•geh'tleman of
the press, who would prostitute his
pen, and the abilities whieh God has
given him, to anonymously slander a
•til|n|ftr, behind the safe shelter of tho.
ediwAl choir. I therefore acquit the
mcfllMrs ofmy father's profession, of
iflpB in tho- nutter, uther than
tfvSah&dm.      •
It was said that Councillor Doti«lns
was not qualified to select an auditor;
that there was no evidence that I bad
any experience as a book-keeper; and
that the evidence was not in my favour Man auditor. There were certain either slanderous insinuations,
which would be quite appreciable by a
judge er joTj of oaaiw, did I care to
treat the write*, otherwise than with
the contempt ik.ub disdain he deserves.
But on the eve of a municipal election, it is my duty to justify the choice
of the chairman of the tinm.ee commit-
teu. when ho selected mo as the city
■ alttjrf] A fH
If I Oe a granger to Kew Westmin-
st^fi my fourteen months'residence
han been in vain; and still more uno-
leas, my advertisement in your columns—the only advertised public auditor in the city. I served an apprenticeship of three years, in the
municipal oflices of a town of over
80,000 inhabitants, -with a public debt
of i,ver £1,000,000. There I worked
in the account* connected with the go*
work's, water rom, police, parks, cemetery, markets, mortgH^estdobeulures,
rates for various purposes, and all the
numerous matters belonging to a large
and important corporation. Sinco
theu I'liavo been in towns, book-keeper, cashier and solo manager of a
large manufacturing business, employ-
in*rpQ*riy 900 men, with warehouses
airf frttfcea in other towns. I havo
beM a braaeh manager, and have audited the accounts of the largest savings bank in Yorkshire. I have pro-
pared the accounts of a large public
elementary school fur the government
inspector, oAd eoted as agent for a
large estate,' euAwttog of farms, mills,
water t*y)*m, g» -manufactory, and
poraonal property such as stocks,
shares, insurance policies, aud everything which makes up the life of a
man of business.
Pardon this egotism. It is but an
attempt to disprove the contradictory
libel, that there was no evidence that
1 had any experience ub a book-keeper,
aiiditbat tho evidence was not in my
favor is on auditor; and to prove, tlmt
when tlie anonymous correspondent
declared, thnt Councillor Douglas was
not quajMl^ sVWtjt Mo auditor, he,
in the word's of Shakespere (Othello,
act V., scene 2), " told a lio!"
ajtMllmnSen essayed
g the mother of
„.r..-.u. ,.i  to  wash hor
before putting on her "meeting
drew." Now, Miss Floy aironaly
objected to being treated in this fash-
righteous indignation. She cried,
"Oh, mamma, I don't need tu bn

little."
An Extensive Purchase.
Thoddeus Harper, one of British
Columbia's pioneer stock-raisers, will
complote to-day the purchaso of the
Stewart ranch in the Cache oreek valley. This property is the finest ranch
in the valley. This property is the
finest ranch in the valley, and has always been one of the bust cultivated,
and it is entirely owing to Mr. Stewart's failing heirlth that he is selling
out. It is understood that Mr. Harper
will purchase a very large extent of
land between his mill at tlio mouth
of tlie Bonaparte and Cache creek
valley for a winter range for his
catUe with the beBt farms in the
valley for grain and hog purposes
and all the land between them
and the Thompson river for feeding
purposes. Mr. Harper will have tho
most extensive and most valuable
property of any stock-raiBer in the
province. After all arrangements
have been settled Mr. Stewart will
visit liis old home in Scotland from
wliich he has been absent for thirty
years. His father is still living, and
he anticipates a pleasant reunion with
the "old folkB at homo."—Colonist,
Meeting at Langley.
(Correspondence of tho Columbian.)
A large meeting of the squatters was
held at Hector Morrison's house for
tho purpose of petitioning the Dominion government for a free grant of 160
acres to each bona fide settler. The
chair was occupied by Mr. Henry Harris, and Mr. W. J. Davey acted as secretary. Tlie chairman stated the object of tho meeting and a lively discussion took place. It wns finally decided to petition the government forthwith for a free grant of high wood
land, wliich is very difficult to clear.
Tlie chairman said somo of it would
cost $100 an acre to clear. The secretary said it would be safe to put the
coat of clearing some of these lands at
8160 per acre, to whicli the meeting
gave a general assent. The settlers
claim that it would cost them years of
hard toil before they would be able to
make a living on the land referred to.
They olaim, also, tliat the federal government ought to assist the poor settler in making roads to give tliem encouragement in struggling with the
difficulties which beset them iu endeavoring to bring this land under cultivation. Messrs. Coughlan, J. Jamison and H. Hnrris were chosen a committee to prepare the petition and forward it to Ottawa forthwith. Considerable debate arose as to who Bhould
represent East Langley in the next
municipal council. Finally, Mr. W.
J. pavey was selected as a candidate,
and consented to stand. The meoting
adjourned, well satisfied witli. the proceedings, and the secretary wub requested to send a report tu the Columbian for publication.
She Haa Them There.
Apropos of the low-necked dress
question, the story is recalled of the
young Irish girl who attended a large
ball in England years ago, in the "good
old times." She was evidently from
the country, and as Bhe entered the
ball-room there was a thrill of dismay
when it was discovered that there was
a marked discrepancy between the
hem of her "dress and the top of her
boots. Fashionable ladies blushed to
the tips of their exposed shoulder-
blades, and one of thein finally remonstrated with tho wondering Kathleen.
'flir reply was pertinent and should
become historical: "Show my ankles,
do I? Indeed, I do; and, sure, bu
would you, madam, were your dress
pulled up around your neck where it
should be."
A done sucker
In a certain city in Connecticut
there lived a very small boy with a
liberal share of small " original sins."
It chanced that one day he was playing in front of the house and overheard some street gamins using slang
expression*, profusely. He ran in to
his mother crying, " Mamma, mamma,
what's a ' gone sucker V " Now,mamma did not in the feast know, but as
her sou had been disobeying her that
morning she took advantage of the
opportunity to point a good moral.
"A gone sucker, my son V Why, it
mean's a naughty little boy who
doesn't mind Iub mother." That night
as Johnnie was saying hia prayers the
ful! measure of his sin seemed to occur
to him with awful significance, and,
stopping short in the usual petition.be
cried out in the abandonment bf hh)
remorse, "Oh, Lord. I'm' » giuie
sucker!''
They're Swearing Yet
''A country parson," in encountering a storm the past season in the voyage across the Atlantic, was reminded
of the following;
A clergyman wan so unfortunate as
tu be caught iu a severe gale ou the
voyage out. The wnter wna exceedingly rough, and the ship persistently
buried hor nose in the sua. The rolling was constant, and at last the good
man got thoroughly frightened. He
believed they wore destined for a
watery grave. He asked tho captain
if ho could not huvo prayers. The"
captain took him by tho arm and hid
him down to tho forecastle, where tho
tars were singing and swearing.
"There," said he, "when you hear
them swearing you may know there is
no danger."
He went buck feeling better; but
thu storm incruaaed bin alarm. Disconsolate and unassisted he managed
to fctttKgor tn the forecast lu again. The
ancient mariners were swearing as
ever. " Mary," he said, as he crawled
into his berth, to his sympathetic
wife, after tacking across a wet deck —
" Mnrj', fnmti God they're ttoiarhtf/
yet"—Harper's Magazine for Janud'nj,
