current Events and Opinions.
The people are beginning to find
out about the enormous profits
gathered in by the Bell Telephone
Compitny, .and as a result of their
discoveries tlie company is gaining
no additional privileges from legislative bodies. The Massachusetts
legislature has given the company
leave to withdraw its petition for
permission to increase, its capital
stock from §10,000,000 to $30,000,-
OOO, and in the Illinois house of
representatives a hill has been
passed by an almost unanimous
voto forbidding any telephone compnny in that stato to charge more
than $36 a year for a telephone
when only one is used by a patron,
or more than §30 a year for each
telephone when n patron uses moro
than one. If this bill shall become
law and be enforced, the Illinois
companies will probably ask the
parent company to reduce tho rent
collected for instruments. This
rent is $14 a year, although the
cost of tho instruments is only
$3.-12. And for the use of these
instruments and n milo of wive,
with the servico of a central oiHce,
a patron in tliis city must pay SI HO
a yenr. Surely a corporation having a eompleto monopoly of a business in which it can collect $14 a
yenr rent, for property costing §3,42
ought to bo satisfied with its profits!

VOLUME 27
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10, 1885.
NUMBER IG
learned independence, is galled by
this ofi'ensivo superiority! Tnmo
submission, on the contrary, is not
to be oxpected. There are thoughtless people, both in the United
States and in British Columbia, who
profess to think that the outcome
of theso* discontents will be the
annexation of the provinco to this
country. Nothing is less probable.
In British Columbia,, with its fine
opon harbors and its fields of coal,
Britain has the finest naval station
on the North Pacific coast. This
alone, dismissing all other conditions (and tliere are more than
could be named in all tho columns
of this newspaper), will cause hor
to hold British Columbia ns long uf
she holds uny interest in tho Pacific
ocean. She will never give her up
unless, perhaps, in the remote future, sho should be induced or compelled to part with all her American
possessions. -Portland. Oregonian,
Reports from . Victoria indicate
. -a strong feeling tliere and throughout the province against the Dominion govornmont. Dissatisfaction
seems general, and we are told that
if a vote were taken to-morrow on
the question of separation and return to the old independent status,
it would be carried by an overwhelming popular voice. A score
or so of small issues and a hundred
petty irritations have stirred up a
rebellious spirit, but thc veal and
sorious causes of discord are tho
railroad and Chinese questions. The
Dominion government lias in the
main performed its strict pledges
respecting tho Canadian Pacific.
There bus beeu, it is true, unreasonable delays, but the lino is now
nearly completed, and with the enr-
ront yoar there will bo unbroken
ruil connection between tlie two
oceans and ou British soil. But
tho Dominion government has not
in this great enterprise, and in
many smaller matters as well, maintained the good spirit, wliich was
vory reasonably to be expected,
from its fair promises so lovingly
expressed ns an inducement to alliance. It has treated British Columbia with surliness, and is constantly reminding her that she was
a "bad bargain." The mismanagement of thnt part of tlie Canadian
Pacific now in operation is turning
what ought to bo a public benefit
into a public curse. Tho worst
methods of monopoly management
: are omployed to make the road yield
money. It is idle to say that the
fault is with a contractor. The
fault lies back of that—it was in
making such a contract. There cau
bo no excuse for an arrnngoment,
, oven though it be temporary, which
; permits thc abuses of wliich the
people of British Columbia justly
-.■complain, The action of llio l)o-
uiiinion government on the Chinese
question is an almost equally aggravating cause of dissatisfaction. Tin
people of British Coiumbin know,
or at least tbey think they know,
what is good for themselves and
for their country, By an almost
unanimous vote, their representatives iu tlie local parliament passed
a bill prohibiting the importation
of Chinese laborers. It was a wise
and moderate measure, in tho spirit
of tho United States law on the
samo subject, aud modeled after it
in many of its details. Beforo it
could becomo a law, this hill had to
bo approved by the higher authority at Ottawa, and it was submitted
with a full explanation of thc circumstances which prompted it and
a full statement of the public feeling in British Columbia concerning
it. This was deemed not sufficient
evidence and a commission was sent
out to investigate tlie matter, At
San Francisco, on tho way out, the
commissioners fell under the blandishments of men who find profit in
tho Chineso labor traffic, and to
theso interested parties they gavo
greater heed than to the unanimous
sentiment of British Columbia.
Thoy returned to Ottawif and reported that the Chinese invasion
was a blessing to the provinco and
that tho opposition to it camo only
from an irresponsible and shiftless
class—in short, from a discontonled
rabble. Whereupon the Ottawa
parliament, in its superior wisdom,
voted the bill down. Is it surprising tlmt a community which in long
isolation and by many yours of
prosperous   self - government   has
Barrios' Wife.
Tlio churactoi' nf tho latu Dictator
Barries is illustrated by the manner in
which he obtained his wife. A Guatemala corrcapondmit tells tlio following
story:
Being on a journey iuto the interior,
ho was cnturtaincd by a merchant of
some note, who hail a duuglitor, a
rosebud of a girl, whose bounty struck
a rosponsivu chord in tlio heart of tho
widower president, Boforo leaving,
tho plnco ho informed lib tin-it that ho
desired to mako tho girl his wifo, but
na sho wns not quite old enough to ho
married, ho wished hur sent to school
and educated in English and French
conversation, in ninsio, embroidery
aud nainthig. In about two yenrs ho
thought sho would be of auflicieut ago
and accomplishments to preside in tho
presidential pulttce, whoa lie would
formally nsk the honor of her hnnd in
marriage. Thia proposition niihcr
staggered tho country merchant, and
lio waa only able to reply, "Si, sonor,
tho gtrl is yours"; but in hia mind ho
detenuined that no daughter ot his
should over bu tho wife of liuiitio
Barrios. Tlie president, however,
kept mi eye ou tho family nnd twice
.seul nu oflicinl to remind them about
the school nnangomout beforo the
father carried it nut. He also advertised extensively thnt ho hud selected
tho tniitdeii ns his future wifo and
would marry her us soon us her education was completed. The two years
jpassed nnd Btirrioa claimed his bride.
Tho girl refused lo marry him nnd tlio
father sustained her iu tho rufusul, expressing his views of his wmild-he sou-
in-law iu no guarded terms. To apenlc
evil of the king ia treason here, as it
used to bo iu Euglnnd in tho timo of
Henry VIII. und llio country merchant wns promptly arrested. His
property was confiscated for tho use of
tho government und he was sent to
wurk iu tho slrcots with u ball nnd
chain on hia leg It sounds like a
fifteenth century romance, but every
oue in Guatemala knows iho story is
trno. Finally, tho girl- frightened nt
hor father's distress, gnye in nnd beg-
ged tho nld genltunmn to yield his consent, He reluctantly did so, niid attended the most brilliant wedding
feast that was uver known in Central
America, The bride received n dia
niond necklace and coronet, half a mil
lum dollars iu money, and the finest
residence in Guatemala, The father
was released from arrest, his property
was restored to him, ho was established
in thu banking business, and became
tho fiscal agent of the government,
which is worth a fortuno to him every
yenr. Burrios very generously forgave
the old man. Mrs. Barrios is the
lovoliost woman in Guatemala, bonuti
ful in chnrnctor as wull na in porsiin,
sucinlly brilliant nnd grnceful, charitable boyond nil precedent iu n country
whero the poor are usually permitted
to take c;ire of themselves, generous
and hospitable, a good iim ther to a
fino family of children, and a devoted
wife, loyal to till tho president's ambitions, and mi eiitiiusiastio supporter
of nil his schemes.

Having practically withdrawn
from China, it is now said tliat
France is anxious to get out of Madagascar, Negotiations with the
people of Madagascar, are going-on
with a view to the withdrawal of
French troops from tlie island. It
is likely Franco will insist upon
some kind of indemnity, or it slico
of territory, under the guise of
which she may leave without apparent disgrace; but neither in .Madagascar nor in Tonquin has slie lieen
tthle to advance her prestige. Both
campaigns were ill-advised and nil-
justifiable, and the outcome is anything but llattering to tilt) national

Tho news of the defeat of tho
Gladstone administration will scurce*
ly bo ft surprise to any one. For
months the government lias beon
existing under sueh serious embarrassments as to make it a matter of
doubt each day whether it would
live to see the next. The defeat
actually happened, however, where
oue would hardly look for it. It
was a question of taxing beer as
against a tax on tea ! The narrow
majority against the government,
the fact thnt several supporters
were absent, antl the other fact that
39 Parnellites voted with the majority, are circumstances which
render the situation unusually interesting. Mr. Gladstone and his
cabinet yesterday placed thoir resignations in the hands of the Queen ;
but will they be permitted to retire!
It is doubtful. The conservatives
could not form a government
strong enough to secure the confidence of tlie present house; and
tho foreign relations are far too
strained and embarrassing to admit
of a general election just now. The
Parnellite.5 could not be counted as
supporters of a conservative government. They will always bo
opposed to any government that
does not grant their demands. It
is probable that'Gladstone, or at
least his cabinet, will be asked to
remain at the helm until the ship
of state has been guided through
the breaker** wliich lie Ijcfuit- her.
No premier ever did more for Ireland or for the freedom of the British subject than Mr. Gladstone,
and the fact that Irish so-called
patriots defeated him is a severe
commentary upon their souse of
fairness. They may rejoice with
the ilush of victory, but the full of
Gladstone should bring keen regret
to the heart of every true Irishman.    	
Groundless Charges.
At the public meeting held in
this city lately to discuss the new
Dominion land and timber regulations, one of the speakers refused
to believe that the provincial government would take any steps to
protest against thc enforcement of
these obnoxious regulations. Since
that time it is commonly rumored
that ellbrts have been made in certain quarters so to direct the agitation as to make it a means of destroying confidence in the local government and the representative of
this district at Ottawa. Of these
rumors we cannot speak with certainty; but after the manner iir
which the representatives of this
district and eity at Ottawa and
Victoria wero assailed at the public
meeting, we should not be surprised
to learn that the objectionable tactics then employed have been followed up. It has been stated already in Tin-: COLUMBIAN that the
local govornmont hud taken prompt
action when the mil ure of the new
regulations became known. Mr.
Hendry, who happened to be in
Viotoria at the time, and who is as
deeply interested as any one in the
timber regulations, expressed himself quite satisfied with what the
government promised to do. But
Mr. Hendry is not a politician, and
had no ends to sorve but those
which concerned his own company
—ftnd in this instance his interests
and the public interests wore thc
same. It was left to others to import into the agitation a politicnl
element, and in tht* absence of nil
the district representatives the opportunity was taken to cast discredit upon tlieir integrity and
efficiency. By permission we publish in another column a copy of a
minute passed by the provincial
cabinet relating to theso obnoxious
regulations. We advise our readers throughout tiie province to peruse this minute carefully, and we
think it will be accepted everywhere
as a most complete answer to the
insinuations which we have mentioned. A copy of the minute was,
of course, forwarded to (he federal
government; so that whilo certain
persons in their ignorance wero
charging the local government with
imbecility anil neglect of the country's interests, as a matter of fact
the government had already sent
forward a protest more comprehensive than anything produced by its
critics, and quite as likely to accomplish the object which was sought.
The minute sets forth with great
force and conciseness the principal
objections to the federal regulations,
and shows not only that the government is fully alive to the importance of protecting and encouraging
our agricultural ami lumbering industries, but is able to frame a state
paper worthy of the occasion. Having by (his paper proved that the
provincial government has not been
guilty of the neglect charged against
it, we may remark that when all
the facts come to be known it is
quite likely the similar charge made
against Mr. Homer will be found
equally groundless.
Tlie Yellow Wave,
Is it not possible to do something
that will stop this continuous influx
of Chinese coolies? Every steamer
coming to the province brings scores
of tliese people, who are already
crowding deserving white men out
of the labor market. We have
passed laws but these laws are disallowed by the federal government,
and that government does uot seem
to propose any effective legislation
on the subject until the country has
been filled with them to overflowing.
The str. Queen of the Pacific arrived
at Victoria last Saturday with 1">0
fresh Celestials, aud there was no
law under whicli one of them could
be prevented from landing and remaining in the country. And these
new importations are made in the
face of the fact that there are white
men now in the province who are
not able to find work enough to keep
their families! We are told that a
law will be passed by the federal
government at the present session
dealing with this question, But
will it lie such a law as will remove
the grievance? And if the law itself
happens to be good, have we any
guarantee for its effective enforcement? For years the people of
California have been combatting a
similar evil. They have induced
the government at Washington to
legislate and to amend and strengthen   tlii'h*   vctiti-iution   ucto, but* rrhtHs
do we Hnd to-day 1 The Sau Francisco Bulletin tells us that during
the past month no fewer than 1609
celestials have arrived in San Francisco! If this is the condition of
things after two years of legislation
ou tlie subject, what may wc expect
to find in British Columbia where
there has been as yet no federal
legislation at all 'I The Bulletin
says the Chinese continue to enter
California almost as freely as if
thore were no restriction act. "The
great majority," it says, "como on
Custom House certificates believed
to have been purchased in Hongkong from returning coolies, There
is no evidence in their appearance
that they had ever been in this
country. The examination is said
to be so slight that there is no difficulty in getting through. The
coolies who had not tin; foresight
to purchase these certificates, work
iu here by the aid of the courts.
They establish previous residence
by thc affidavit mill of the Chiuose
consulate, laud on protenseof being
in transit and stay, other coolies
being forthcoming to fill their places
when the time comes. The few
who are too stupid for anything
prolong the journey to Victoria and
return armed with illegal certificates
of the American consul thero. We
do not know that wo havu efl'ected
much more by restriction than to
set up a pew business. Cluing, thc
imperial inspector of customs at
Ciintou, at first had a linger iu tho
pie. Bub lie has been slutt out. The
departing coolie is now aimed with
a piece of paper, which he sells at
Hongkong perhaps for more than
his passage costs him. Clerks,
marshals and attorneys iu the federal courts are in the biijoyment of a
bonanza of fees. But still tho
coolies come and every new arrival
only complicates a situation grave
enough before. The immigration
of coolies to all appearances will
soon be as large as it ever was. It
is not very much below high wator
mark now." It does seem stranga
that the crookedness of the long-
tailed race should prove more than
a match for Yankee shrewdness.
We hopo that sort of experience
may not be in store for the people
of this province after the passing of
restrictive legislation — if it over
should bo passed,

A Sknsiiile Elephant.—Not long
ago one of Barmtm's elephants . was
found to be in danger of losing his
sense of sight. A surgeon who had
boon called to examine the hugo animal declared that if tho elephant could
be induced to submit to un operation
the eye could bo saved. Accordingly
the poor animal was tied down nnd
some caustic fluid was dropped iuto
one of his uyus. He roared with pain,
for the trentment wns severe. On thu
following dny the eye that had boon
treated was much bottor, but the surgeon thought he was going to havu a
terrible timu in operating on thu other
eye. Fancy his surprise to find that
as soon iu tho great beast hoard his
voice he stretched himself on tho
ground nnd peacefully st.omitted to
thu painful ordeal. The ulephant hud
simply recognized tho skill and friendly purpose of his benefactor.

Examinations.—The Colonist objects to tho suggestion mndo by this
journal to huld tho provincial tench
ers' exnminntious alternately at this
city. Wo expected it would object,
although the grounds nf objection uru
extremely silly. It thinks thu examinations ought to bo held at tho politi
cnl centre, fnr which it oilers m
reusing nntl it seems to imagine that
Victoria is just as central as New
Westminster. Everybody ulsu knows
that it is not. Tho suggestion that
Vale and other interior towns would
be asking for thu examination is frivolous, When Vale becomes ns much a
centre of population for the province
ns Now Westminster is now, we shell
offer no objection to the teachers' ox-
uniiuation being held there. Taking
tho mainland and island together, New
Westminster is undoubtedly thu only
city thnt cau put forward nny claim to
a central location, It is easy of nccceu
from all directions, and wu respectfully repeat thu suggestion that thu
examinations bu hold here at least
sometimes.

STRONG PROTEST FROM THE PROVINCIAL
GOVERNMENT.
The following minute adopted hy
the provincial government, nud forwarded to Ottawa us a protest against
the Dominion land nnd timber regulations lately issued, is published by
consent nud for general information:
The committee of council have had
under consideration the "Regulations
for the disposal of Dominion lands
within the railway belt iu the province
of British Columbia," adopted by
ordor in council, dated April 20th,
1885,
Tho committee regret to observe
that these regulations, by reason of
cumbersome nnd vexatious provisions
nnd excessive imposts, nro altogether
ununited to thu wants nnd conditions
of this province; thut tboy ure in some
respects inconsistent with the spirit,
if not a violation of the letter, of the
agreement nrrived nt between thu twu
governments, und it is believed thnt
uny attempt to enforce them would bu
prejudicial to the best interests, if not
dangerous to the peace, of the community,
Thc privilege of homestead entry is
cniitined to such lauds as shall havu
beun surveyed and the survey thereof
formally confirmed by the department
nf the interior. This limitation is
calculated to operate prejudicially to
settlement, especially in view of the
delay whioh has occurred and, to all
appearance, is likely to occur in placing these lauds in a position to bu
homesteaded conformably with this
provision.
It was agreed (inter alia) by the
Dominion govornmont thut agricultural lauds within thu railway belt in
Uritish Columbia would bu thrown
open with all convenient speed to actual scttlei'A at the price of one dollar an
acre- an agreement not qualified by
limitation ns tu time or survey. Assuming that suction tl provides for
regulating tho prion of these hinds by
order iu council conformably with said
agreement, tho committee would poiut
out the serious hindurance to settlement caused tn the pnst by the uncertainty ns to right nnd conditions nf
homestead entry, n slate of things
which it is funrud will only hu intensified by the regulations now under
review.
Tho exempt ions from hmucstend
entry in section 13, sub-section 3, nre
of a character to deter lhe conscientious immigrant from availing himself
of thu so-called privilege thereunder.
It might, indeed, bo difficult to find a
quarter-suction nf which thu settler
could unt be deprived by a rigid application of tliesu provisions,
The extent of Improvements exacted under suction 20, suh-section 4,
is nltofjothor beyond the capacity nf a
single settler, especially when it is
considered that much of the laud
within the railway belt un Ihu lower
Fraser is heavily limbered and very
difficult to clear.
Section 12 provides that thu homo*
steading regulations shall not imply to
binds nettled upon after llio I1r.1t day
nf duly, 1885. Inasmuch un the right
of homi'steud entry is coil filled to surveyed lands, aud little nr no laud can
be surveyed before thu ubovemi'iitinued
dale, this regulation woultl appear
practically to take nwny with one hand
whnt. it profcsBufl   tn  give with the
other—to mock the intending settler.
This unreasonable limitation is moreover, a violation of Ihu agreement
made botween tho two governments,
according to which agricultural lunds
within the railway belt in British Co-
lumbiit wure to he open to actual settlers nt ouo dollar au acre, without
limitation us to time.
Section 27 declares "that no grant
" from the Crown of lands in freehold
" or fur uny less estntu hns npurated or
"will operate as a conveyance of the
" minerals therein, unless thc same are
" expressly conveyed iu such grant."
Crown patents issued in tliis province fur lands within the railway belt,
ns elsewhere, have, by intendment of
law, though not "expressly," conveyed
everything on and under the lund, except gold und silver; nnd if tho words
nbove quoted are intended or calculated
to disturb the patentee in thu enjoyment of his accustomed rights, or if
they ara intended or calculated tu interfere with the acquirement of similaf*
rights by settlers within the said belt
who may bo entitled hereafter to receive patents from the provincial government, thc oommittee desire respectfully but must emphatically to
protest against nu innovation so inconsistent with the principles of justice
nud constitutional luw.
Thoso sections of tho ''Regulations"
relating to timber lands nro equally, if
not more, objectionable. Generally,
tho provisions and restrictions nro so
cumbersome ns to become vexatious,
if not absolutely impracticable, when
applied to tho scattered und remote
timber lands of this province.
When it is considered that uur
lumbering industry is only in its Infancy, struggling ut enormous disadvantage against the gigantic establishments and heavy customs tnrills of a
powerful neighbor, it' is submitted
that to still furthor handicap it by
imposing tho cumbersome nnd vexatious regulations and restrictions already adverted to and to add to these
the heavy imposts provided for in
sections 44, 47, and 03 would be to
paralyze, if not absolutely cruBh out,
this important industry.
Thu Committee desire to call special
attention to the following: Tho effect
of saddling thu Dominion timber lands
with regulations so much more onerous and imposts so very much heavier
thau those imposed upon contiguous
provincial timber lands, must obviously
bu to confine lumbering operations almost entirely to the latter, with the
still more serious result of destruction
of the former by tire as settlement
penetrates tho forest. Thus not only
would nn important industry bo seriously crippled meanwhile, and federal
and provincial revenues thereby depleted, but euormous forest wealth
would be completely destroyed,
It is respectfully submitted that the
people of British Columbia are the
best judges of what is calculated to
promote internal prosperity and well-
being, and the simple circumstance of
their own legislature having, in dealing with the provincial lands, imposed
regulations immeasurably less unerous
and charges Iobb than one-fourth of
those under review, may fairly bn
accepted as a very conclusive argument in support of tho contention that
the Dominion laud regulations nro
illiberal nnd burdensome.
The Committee most respectfully
submit thnt the inif interests of thu
country, both Dominion and provincial, would be best promoted by having tho Innds within the railway belt
administered on terms similar or approximating, to those governing contiguous provinoial lauds.
Thu Committee advise that this
Minute hu approved and a copy forwarded to the Hon. the Secretary of
State for Canada.

The N. IV. n. V. c. Colors.
Eihtok Columbian.—I have been requested to write a short statement of
facts relative to these colors, lately deposited in Holy Trinity Church, as none
of the paragraphs printed so far are altogether correct.
The colors, which cost S7o ta §100,
were a gift to tbe corps from its officers—
Capt. Pritchard, Lieut, Birch, Kusigus
Bushby and Wolfenden, and Dr, Jones,
Surgeon, The work on the flng itself
wns undertaken by a committee consisting of the wives of the married officers;
but wns nearly all executed by Mrs. \V.
M. Jones, partly because that lady had
a Bpecial talent for such work, nnd pnrtly
because she had charge of it—the committee meeting at Dr. Jones' residence.
The metal work on the staff was done in
Mr. Cunningham's shop, by \V.,). Watson (one of the victims of thu "Pacific"
disaster).

Tlie Steam Ferry.
Editor Coi.umiuan,—What are the
obligations of thc contractor for thestenm
ferry from this oity to Urownville! If
the agreement is too loug for publication,
can you answer the following questions!
(I) Is it required that the steam ferry
leave its own slip if tennis, freight nail
passengers require it; or can the contractor disregard the wants of the public
and leave them to wait his phnsure as to
when nud how thoy shall cross» (2) Are
the public obliged to put tlieir owu
freight on beard the steamer, however
inconvenient thu steamer nnd the landing
may ho! (3) Is it necessary to have accommodation tur pnHseiigei'B; or enn the
ferryman trent pnssengors with any
amount of discourtcsv, or do tlie terms
of contract forbid courtesy to passengers I
Hum a mtv.
[ (I) The by-law requires the ferry to
leave its own slip, ami to make a round
trip mice an hour, beginning at (1 a.m.
uud running till 8 p.m., on week days;
but it nlso requires the corporation In
provide a suitable slip for thc ferry,
whioh hns not yet been done. (2) The
by law does not require the ferryman to
handle freight, nud he cannot bo expected tn do ro; but, as hns been already
stated, lie must leave from the ferry slip;
nml if he docs uot, nnd inconvenience in
loading follows, he is not complying with
the by-law, (3) The clauses regulating
the boat are as follows: One boat at least
30 ft. long and 10 ft. beam, "with a capacity to* curry comfortably 20 passengers at one time;" and nlso a "large scow
40 ft. long by 14 ft. wide, for the accommodation of wagons, stock, and heavy
freight," both to be "built aud equipped
iu the latest and most npproved manner,"
— whatever that may mean! or there
may be n stenm ferry "capable of accommodating teams, freight, passengers,
stock," etc. Tlio by-law says nothing
about courtesy to travellers, and the
practice of courtesy could not be considered a Lreaoh of contract.—En,]
The only variation in quality which
will ever he found in "Myrtle Navy"
tobacco is in the degree of moisture
whieh it contains, lobncco is a very
ready absorbent of moisture, nnd in unusual states of the weather it may become a little too inoUt or a little too dry
to suit the taste of some, This is n
minor matter, however, as the essential
qunlity of the tobaecn is not changed.
Its combustion is a little slower or a little faster according to the degree of
moisture, that is all. The darker the
plug the greater the moisture, and many
prefer the dark, Jn each cuddy, however, the preference for either can be
met.
NEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WQftU.
Bat?u:foru, N.W.T., Mny 20.—-The
story of tho finding of Mrs. Gowanlouk's
body turns out false, and there is absolutely uo authentic news of the fate of
Big Bear's captives. Poundmaker told
Gen. Middleton he did not make war.
The general asked whether a chief was
without authority. He replied: "I nm
not tiio chief." Ho said he had notified
Big Bear of his surrender, Lean Mnn, a
Stoney chief, denied personal knowledge
of Payne's murder. He said ho had
heard that Kola committed it. Another
Indian nsked the general how he would
get liis living. The general addressed
the gathering and said: "The Indians
must stop going to the whites aud begging, They had been well treated, but
when they imagined the whites were in
difficulties they ungratefully attacked
them, pillaging, murdering nnd keeping
thc country in an uproar. They thought
the whites hnd not many soldiers, aud
that the Indians wore bettor fighters and
aMc to shoot them down from ambush.
He proved the contrary, nnd if the Indians had neglected to surrender ho would
have taken a large force aud hunted the
tribe till all wore killed." Thunder
Child protested thnt he knew nothing of
nny wrong-doing. He and others wanted
tu shake hands- The general refused
ami suid he would only shake hands with
good Indians. An old squaw quietly appealed for her peoplo.
Oitawa, Ont., Special Telegram, May
20,—Iu the house to-night, Howell, acting minister of finance, asked a vote of
credit for $1,000,000 to defray the cost
ia connection with .the Northwestern
rebellion. Caron, minister of militia,
stated that tins was merely for transport, pay of the mon and forage for the
horse's. He could uot give any estimate
as to the entire cost up to date, but nll
the §200,000 already voted was expended. Ho calculated that it would cost
8."iiiiMHH) for six thousand men. He did
uot include ammunition or tbe price of
horses. In answer to a criticism of
Blake, who thought somo nusmaugemeut
hnd lieen made regarding the purchase of
supplies nnd other contracts, Caron stated
that things had to be done in a hurry,
and the government could not get along
without the help of the Hudson Bny
company. The house went into committee of supply and passed the resolution.' '
Constant] noi>le, Juno 4.—Sir Peter
Lumsden says: '-Complications will soon
arise between the Russians and the Afghans at the frontier, about the question
of water supply. Thnt, with gold;
forms tho pivot of all Central Asian politics. Nearly all Busso-Persian disputes
havu turned on questions of wnter use.
Persia has been compelled nt times to
relinquish the right to use water courses
for irrigation, whenever Russia required
water for military or commercial purposes, Tho Murghab is the finest river
111 Central Asia, with a full stream. The
next Russian acquisition will assuredly
be the watershed of Murghab valley."
He further says: "The Ameer's army
now numbers 00,000, a majority of which
is badly armed. The Afghans' position
ut Herat grows stronger, now that its
inhabitants generally favor resistance to
Russian advances. Tho change is produced by visible signs of co-operation of
tho British government, and the presence
of Biitish olliccrf* directing repairs of tho
fortifications." Sir Peter thinks it would
he very cubj' for thc British government
to render tho Russian positions in Central Asia untenable. If Britain only
gives word, anil is willing to nid, all
Tiirkstnn would revolt against their
Russian masters. Ho dees not four nny
Itussian invasion of Indin, but he does
fenr the loss of England's prestige having
nu ill effect on the people of India, who
will give undue strength to the power of
Muscovite intrigues. He Baid adequate
measures were being adopted to make
the Indian frontier extremely safe, and
nothing need lie feared iu the direction
of Cashmere, as thut country was inaccessible from Russian territory, and
fully iu British hands,
Fort Put, June 4.—Cant. Steele with

SPMAUBPATCik
London, June 8—Labouehere, Radical,
this nfternoon in the house of commons
gave notice of his intention to oppose
tho proposed parliamentary graut of
£30,000 per annum as a dowry to Princess Beatrice on the occasion of her marriage. The Pall Mall Gazelle contains
an article which is apparently inspired
by M. Lessor of the Russian section of
the Afghan boundary commission, Tho
article admits tlt:-tt the settlement of
matters in dispute with Russia is still
unsigned, and attributes the present
delay to the hair-splitting or quibbling
of Granville. Tho article is in atone
more in anger thau fairness, and warns
the carl not to carry his dilatory game
too far or it might become dangerous.
In the house of commons, after Childers'
statement touching thc spirits tax, Mr.
Childers had no sooner done explaining
the government's reason for uot at present refunding tbe tax than the Rt.-Hon.
Sir Michael Edward Hucks-Beaeli, Conservative, arose quickly and asked why
it wns thnt n Liberal government, which
ought to be economical, had to resort to
extreme forms of taxation iu order to
meet au extraordinary expenditure of
£100,000,000 made by Gen. Sir Peter
Luinsden? This qucstiou was greeted
with cheers from the Tory benches,
Mr. Cross informed the house that
Sir Peter since his nrrivnl in London had disavowed any intention to
attack tho government, nud did not consider himself responsible for incorrectly
reported utterances attributed to him by
journalists incliucd to misrepresent him.
Childers moved tbe second rending of
tho budget, nnd iu his supporting speech
explained that of thu total increase in
the beer ami spirits.ihuics England pnys
seven-ninths, Scotland one-ninth, and
Ireland ono-ninth. Sir Chas. Dilke supported the budget/ He said that teu
was already taxed enough aud a further
tnx on wines would uot be very productive,,and would injure colonial trade.
Sir Michael wont 011 and denounced the
increased duty on spirits. He said the
receipts from spirits were already decreasing. He thought a small increase
in the duty on tea would hnve beon wiser
and more profitable. The government,
he continued, should hnve raised tho
duty on wine, because wine wns no more
n necessity to life than beer or spirits.
Sir Michael concluded by Baying thnt
tha proposed incrense in tho duty 011 beer
and spirits was iucquitnble iu thc absence of a corresponding addition to the
duties on wine. Jno. K. Cross, under
secretary for India, spoke ior government, iu answer to n number of questions concerning attacks reported to
have been made on the government.
Sir Stafford Northcote and others having
spoken, Mr. Gladstone arose to reply. Ho
thought the opposition wero creating a
precedent which they would regret when
they came into power again. The presont
wine duty hnd a beneficial effect hi preventing adulteration and increasim; trade
many millions annually. It would he
impolitic to increase the duty on wino
unless on most extreme pressure. The
government were compelled to raise
money in view of impending danger to
the empire, danger which oven norf he
was unaole to say had passed away. The
opposition eavilled at the mode of raising
money without suggesting nu alternative.
Tea would require an additional tax of 3
per pound to produce the same amount,
thus raising the duty to 7o per ceut. on
innocent beverage. The government
had chosen between alcoholic liquors and
tea and sngnr. They would accept the
issue of tho vote as one of life or death
and did not envy those who, if they
gniuetl a victory, woultl bave to bear the
consequences. Mr. Gladstone's remarks
weru received with prolonged cheers.
The government was defeated ou the
second leading of tbe budget, it being
rejected by a vote of 204 to 252. When
the result was announced Lord Rundolph
Churchill and Mr. t'nrnell jumped upon
their seats nnd enthusiastically waved
their hats, and tho cheering was renewed.
Thirty-ulna Parnellites and all thc Conservatives voted With tho majority, The
minority included Sir Chas, Lass, Brewer,
ami several Irish Liberals. Although
strong whips bail beeu issued, many government supporter;* were absent. Following is another nccount of the scenes
in tbu house ot commons after tlio division. When the result nf the division
was announced, Gladstone, wlm had been
leaning forward in his seat nnd cynically
sinilliug, started, turned pale, and clutched his bands uervniisly together. The
house Immediately became a Label of
confusion, members yelling, stamping,
aud waving lints, neckties and handkerchiefs, A tumultuous cheer camo from
the galleries nnd speaker Peel vainly
howled for order. Tbe Parnellites pointed nt Gladstone and yelled "Thnt is tho
price of coercion,'' "DoiVfl with Buckshot
Forster," "Remefnber Myles Joyce."
Mr. Gladstone nrose to move au adjournment, but stood in his place fully a minute before be could he heart). It is confidently rumored thnt Ghidstono will
visit the queen and tender his resignation

London, June 9.—A cabinet council
wns convened at noon nud was in session until 1:16 o'clock. It is under

the defeat last night on thc budget it
wuuld be unconstitutional for members
of tho cabinet to remain longer in
oflico. It was resolved thnt their resignation be tendered to the Queen nt
once.
London, June 0. —Gladstone, a few
minutes after 4 o'clock this p. m,, entered the house of commons. His
appearance was that of a firm man,
perfectly undisturbed. He ut once
proceeded to the speaker's desk und
entered into conversation with Mr.
Peel. During the conversation the
premier wub evidently in bright spirits,
und he was loudly cheered by Radical
members of tho house when he showed
himself in his usual place. His very
self-posBCSsion seemed to enthuse his
admirers, the chamber was fairly rent
with cheers and the applause became
au ovation. At last Mr. Gladstone
arose in deference to the greeting. He
said tho cabinet on assembling to-dny
thought they were under obligations to
submit n dutiful communication to the
queen (cheers). It would be premature
on his part to enter into particulars
concerning the nututo of that communication just now. He would sny,
however, that as on former occasions a
few days must elapse before the result
of that communication cuuld be nrrived
at so as to be made known to the
house. During the interval, Mr. Gladstone concluded, the houso would follow its usual custom in refraining from
the transaction of ordinary business,
and he would move that the house on
rising adjourn until Friday.

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground Ib thc pavilion of
thc Dominion Organ end Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being thc location of a magnificent collcctiun of instruments. The
ercctinti of this building, which cost
nbout 81,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements ot thc company, which
hnd been cramped for room in tho Main
Building, where it iB impossible to judge
thc merits of high-clofls instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on tho
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who cnll, inspect, and purchase proves
bcyend qucstiou that the public approve
tha provision made for their convenience
nnd comfort. Here a crowd may he
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by lending
city nnd country musicians.
Hight woll do the Company deserve
tho success which they have achieved.
Tho present prosperous concern had, like
all groat institutions, its day of small
things. It hnd its origin in Bowmanville
nbout fifteen yours ago, tho stock being
nt thnt time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. Ahout ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary nud treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and \V. S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out tho shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A furthor stimulus wns
given to the concern by tho admission of
a Detroit millionaire ns n partner, l'iimo-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, aud the establishment was increased, until it uow occupies n tending
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out aoout 200 organs and 50
Iiiunos per month. Theso are produced
iy 250 hands, who receive in wages
about 815,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, nnd
they havo branches in London nnd Manchester, Englnnd; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; nnd St. Petersburg,
Russia,
Thc Instruments ou exhibition In the
pavilion aro fair examples of tho Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut Is a splendid instrument.
Of squnre pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the Bide
wall of a room, and Is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, ami Is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room, Tliese
two instruments arc of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is.
quick and easy, the tone brilliant aud
powerful. In musieat quality aud appearance they arc equal to tlie best
American piauos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $o0 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in thc pavilion.
The largest organ whicli tlie Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is tt
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
.Montreal, but is expected here at the -
end of the week. It is arranged to he
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed iu position to await the
arrival of thc big instrument. The organs run through alt grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. The cases show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
The cuse which secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Coses for parlor organs are chaste in design and trtls
tic in execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases.
[T. ll Pearson k Co., New Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organs

to purchase should not fail to communicate with them. Sample organs pn view.

Victoria, K (J., May 4.—Thinking
that the experience of one who had
made the journey to tho Paoifio Ocean
over the lino nf tho 0. P. Bail why
might he interesting to many of ynur
readers, 1 oiler for their consideration
the following account of my experience
in British Columbia. Uritish Columbia commences at tlio aummit uf the
Rocky mountains, about seven miles
from Laggan, on the O.P.R, Tho railway passes through no less than four
ranges of mountains. Theso are tlie
Rockies, tho Selkirks, the Gold range,
and the Oflsoiidoa. Thero is still another called the Coast range, through
which tho railway does not pass, Thu
Rocky mountain range may bo datd to
bo reaohed at Calgary, and passed
when the lirst crossing of the Columbia
rivor is reached. The pass through
which tho railway runs is nulled tiio
KnnCINQ-HOllSII   PASS.
After crossing tho Columbia river tlio
tirst time, tho pass through tho Selkirks is entered. This i.s called the
Illisiliwit or Moberley pass. This onda
nt the second crossing (if the Oulumhin
river. The nest ia tho Gold range-
through whioh tho lino t.f tho railway
runs through what is called Eagle pass
to Shuswap lake. After this the railway follows thu shoro of the lake, and
the banks uf the Thompson nnd Frasor
rivers to the const. Tlio traveller on
the O.P.R., iii travelling westward,
will pass over what is probably lhe
broadest expanse of level country in
the world, For several days ill succession he will see tho sun rise nnd set
much the same as if ho were out on
mid-ooonu, although he may bo moving
night and day at tho ordinary railway
speed, When he nears Calgary tliere
will he nn abrupt change, and ho will
Iind himself for about llio samo length
of time traversing thc roughest and
most mountainous country in the
world. It will bo mountains succeeding mountains until ii will seem that
he is never going to soe level land
again. Even after be reaches Viotoritl,
the capital of British Columbia, he will
still Bee a range of mountains ahead of
him so high that even in this warm
climate the snow never leaves their
tops during the whole year. Iu our
journey over this route, after leaving
Laggan, we reached tho summit of tho
Rocky mountains. The railroad now
descends along the side of the Kicking-
Horse river until that river joins the
Columbia. The scenery along this
pass is
liltAXli ASS IMPOSING
in tho extreme, but the pleasure is
much marred by a realization of thc
fact that we are descending a grade of
forty-five feet in tbe thousand. It
seemed to mo to be much more than
that. I had also the comforting us-
surnnce that it was not an unusunl
thing for tlie train to get beyond Ihe
control of the engineer and brakesman
nnd run away. It indeed look.? mysterious to ine how it can be avoided.
In several of those runaways, I was
told by thc men that were on thein,
that they saved themselves by jumping
oft' and letting the train go to dealruc-
tion. The Company have, howover,
provided safety switches by which a
train may be run in on a side track on
up grade. Going down Ihis terrible
incline over roaring mountain-torrents
along the edge of precipices 1,000 feet
high, and dashing through tunnels
black ns midnight, tho impressive
mountain scenery through which we
passed was but littlo noticed, as a
decidedly flash-creeping, scalp-raising
sensation wns produced by a consciousness of the danger we were in, and our
thoughts were mure on what nor past.
lifo hud beon, und what kind of scon-
cry the next world was going to present
to us. After travelling about seven
miles on this downward road wo begun
to breathe moro freely, and camo into
n country nt least 110 or 40 degrees
warmer than tho summit which wo
passed. After au uneventful ride of
four or live hours wo reached the     •
VAILBY  OF   THE   COLUMBIA 1UVKII.
Here the country is heavily timbered
aud what seemed to mc lo be good
farming land. After crossing the Columbia, the railroad follows tlio valley
of tho Beaver until it reaches the summit of the next mountain range (the
Selkirks). The town of Beaver, about
20 miles from the crossing uf the Columbia, is tlie present terminus of thc
road westward, lt is a place of about
500 inhabitants, and, liko lhe other
small towns along tho line, it hns been
entirely built without sawed lumber of
any description, but this hns been nl-
inost mnde up by using boards split
out of those gigantic cedars which grow
in the vnlleys nil over this country.
The valleys here, nnd the sides of the
mountains for miles up, aro heavily
timbered with an excellent quality of
spruce, which grows 150 to 200 feet
in height and as largo ns five or six feet
in diameter at the butt. When it is
remembered that this timber averages
some five or six millions to the square
mile, somo idea of the enormous timber wealth of thia country mny bo
gained. But a great ollsct must bo-
made for the placo where it grows mid
for tho trouble there must bo in getting
it off the sides of the mountains. Indeed, this is the difficulty with tlio
whole country, I hnve often hoard it
remarked thnt the climate is excellent,
the timber first-class, and the soil i.i
good. There ia an immense amount
of good furming land. Thu trouble
with it is that it
STANDS   ON ITS i;i)UH,
Aftor leaving Boavor, a journey on
foot of about eighty miles brought us
to the second crossing of tha Oolumbia
rivor. This pass is called llio Moberley ql Illisiliwit pass, The mountains
on either sido of us fur surpassed any
that wc hnd yet seen, und the snow-
slides, I have not the slightest doubt
surpass anything ovor seen iu Switzerland. They were from one hundred
to two hundred feet in depth nnd Urge
enough to cover a good-sized town.
These slides generally follow some
ravine down tho sides of tho mountain
and take the timber along tho sides uf
the ravinu with thorn, cutting them off
close to the ground ns completely us
the woodman's nxu could do it, und
hurling ond smashing them ns though
they were straws. Many of those ravines aro crossed by tho railroad lino
and will hove to ho bridged over; but
how to build n bridgo that will not bo
at the mercy of these snow-slides is to
me an insolvablo mystery. Tho greater part of the line, 1 nm told, is being
changed from tho north to tho south
side of the pass. This wilt avoid crossing many deep ravines, but still there
ate 12 or 15 milos of tho road whoro
there seems no possibility of oscnping
them. There have been somo five or
six lives lost this winter in those slides
and a large number of almost miracu
lous escapes, and when we consider
(ho number who frequent the pass,
this loss of life is roally appalling. Perhaps the most remarkablo phenomena
connected with them is the commotion
thoy causo iu the atmosphere around
them, as they cause a cyclone m tho
immediate neighborhood almost us destructive us the avalanche itself. After
wo had tramped about eighty miles
through this terrible gorge, wo camo
out of it on the bank of the Columbia
river at tho town of Fnrwell. This
town resembles tho town of Beaver,
already described. I noticed a statement in some of the papers that tho
town of Beaver was the
WICKEDEST (IN THK CONTINENT,
Biit I am well satisfied lhat tho author
of tliis uncharitable statement never
saw the town of Fnrwell. Thc amount
of druukennosa I saw in both places
exceeds by several hundred percent.
any other places of the same sizo I
hnvo ovor been in, and that in the
face of a prohibitory law and whisky
ut 00 cents per glnss- All kinds oF
gambling, and every species of licentiousness and lewdness are practised ttt
nll hours of tho dny and night. After
crossing Lhe Columbia tho second timo
wu found ourselves among a class of
peoplo who wore very notioonbly different from any that we had left behind.
Thu headquarters of these people is in
San Franoisco, nnd the manners, customs, slang phrases, etc., aro those of
California. Wo also round a change
iu tho currency, and instead of dollars,
cents, and mills, the only money table
ill uso is, S bits make one dollar, and
the prico of everything is quoted in
dollars and bits— two bits, or twonfy-
five cents, being the smallest currency
in use. Short bits, or ten cunt pieces,
and live cunts by themselves have no
purchasing power whatever, the lowest
prico for anything being two bits.
After journeying for forty-eight miles
from the crossing through Eagle pass,
wo cnine to Shush up. ltiko. Here is a
small town called Eagle Pius, which I
believe at some futuru day will be u
bountiful city, It has certainly the
prettiest location for a city I have
ever semi. It is rilose to the mouths
of tho Eagle river and ttie Spallumcheen, and is the best sporting ground
I over saw. The Sphllumohecn river
i,s navigable for about 40 miles, and is
said to flow through a beautiful farming and grazing country us yet but
partially developed. From hoio wo
tuok a steamer to Kamloops, a distance of about ninety miles, which is n
town of about 1,500 inhabitants, with
several churches, a largo griBt and sawmill, and has nu apparently good farming country around it. After proceeding on a steamer about oO miles
farther down the Thompson river, wl)
came to Savona Ferry, to whicli place
tho C. P. lt. is oompleted and frum
which threo passenger trains per week
run to tho coast. Wo enquired the
fare on the train to Yale, which is the
head of navigation on tho Fraser river
and dirtant about 120 miles. We
woro told that it was thirteen dollars.
Wo of course considered that outrageous, but tho next morning when we
came to the train we were told that
11' WAS BIOUTBBS DOLUftSi
The fare having raised live dollars during the night. Nor was this all the
extortion, as (mother dollar was lo bo
added to this on account, of the bills
given for the fare being ou tlio .Bank
of Montreal, a deduction of live per
cent, being made on them. These
charges, however, aro not exorbitant
when compared with their freight
charges, ns I know it to bo a fact that
as high as 25 conts a pound is charged
for freight, and the regular charge ou
freight is said to bo more than twice
that from Liverpool to Port Moody.
Tho town of Valo numbers about 2,000
inhabitants, of which ono-llnrd uro Indians, one-third Chinese, and the rost
ore whites. This, howover, might bo
said uf the whole, country. If thero is
any excess it i.? in favor of the Chinese,
who arc f;vat Outnumbering tlio whites.
The white poople find it utterly impossible to livo and support a family on
tho wages they aru hove paid. The
cost of living here is twice ns much as
it in iii Ontario, and unless a white
man lives in thu same way as tho Chinese, who Iteop nu families and live on
fuod that wuuld uot be considered iit
for dogs, he need not try to earn a living in this country. Besides, a man
who works for a living hero is looked
down on by tho Chinese nud everyone
else, much the Baino ns tho white trash
were iu thu South before the war. Indeed, we mny even say now Hint the
days when a laboring man can educate
n family su that thoy can successfully
struggle through life, are passed fur-
over, nnd this on account of tlie shortsighted policy of our rulers, or, what
would be nearer the truth, their total
disregard of thc rights of thoso who
ure compelled by circuinstances uver
which thoy have no control, to labor,
working with th'-ir own hands to supply the wants of those dependent on
thom. P. L. Trout.
