John Chenoweth, of Portland.claims
to have invented a craft of the steamboat kind that is far ahead of anything
afloat ov on wheels. In a recent communication to the Astoria Chamber of
Commerce he deprecates tho idea of
relying upon a railroad between the
two pities, and tells them thai; with Iub
boats on that broad and majestic highway, the noble Columbia river, a railroad will boa costly buperlluity. He
concludes his communication to the
Chamber of Commerce in the manner
following:
My principal object in writing ia to
inform you that I am the inventor of a
new fashioned, swift water craft, operated by steam power, that can bo made
to travel the distance between here and
Astoria in less time than can ever be
honed for for u train by means of a
railroad, and that two qr three of them,
large enough for general transport purposes, can ne built fur the amount estimated aa the cost of a single mile of
the proposed Astoria railroad.
This Is no vision of mine. T have
studied mid 6sperime1.tod on the'sub*
jcL't f"i' Vi.'ii*. and eta now satisfied
th-u tUfiinvb p -an bo,-nude to ■■•■>
on tiw-M&n ' think, "••-'.: yfiins,
th*) dist'iiree between Astoria md
Portland cun be traveled and wny landings niaU'ci in two and ft half hours. 1
am confidenl from the results of experiments already made that it will travel
at least forty miles per hour. My experiments as yet have not been entirely
perfected, ami I am sure that with all
parts properly finished much greater
speed could bo obtained.
If the Chamber of Commerce of A«-
.toiia, or any individuals of that city,
think what f have horein snid worthy
of consideration, and that kiicIi an
invention au 1 have represent.-d would
be of benefit to the place, i would be
clad to hear from them upon the subject.
If ouo is wanted, two months would
be all the time required tu have one
of large size completed and equipped
ready for business.

Aii Immense Vessel.
. Tho most prodigious vessel on thu
records of the ancients was built by
order of Hicro, tho second tyrant of
Syracuse, under the auneriiiteudunce
of Archimedes, about 230 years before
Christ, tne description of which would
lill a small volume, Athenians has
toft'ii deaot'tptioii of this vast Heating
fuln'io. There was, hu status, ns 11 men
timber euijjloved jn |-L-i* us would havu
served for the construction of fifty {.'alloys. It had ail the varieties of apart-
iiients and conveniehcea necesHary to a
palitci', such as l)iiiii|itetiiig n-Mins,
oaths, a library, u temple of vuiius,
gardens, tisli-|)i>u(ls, nulls and a spacious gyiuuasiuiii. Tho inlaying of the
floors of the middle apartment represented 111 various colors the Stories of
Homers Hind; iheru were everywhere
the most beautiful paintings, and every
embellishment and ornitiuout that art
could furuiah were bestowed on the
ceilings, windows, and every part.
The inside of the temple was inlaid
with cypress wood, thu Hint lies were of
Ivory- and the floor was studded with
precious stones. The vessel had twenty
ticuchus of Ultra and was compassed by
an iron rampart or battery; it hud also
eight towers with walls and bulwarks,
wliich were furnished with machiiius
of war, ouo of which was wipuble of
throwing a stone of MOO pounds weight
or a dart of 12 cubits long to the distance of half a mile. To launch her
Archimedes invented a screw of great
power. She had four wooden and
eight iron anchors; hor mainmast, composed of ti single tree, was procured
after much trouble from distant inland
mountains. Him*'-, finding that he
had 110 harbors in Bietly capublo ot containing her, and learning that there
was a [amine in %ypt, sent hur loaded
with corn to Alexandria. She boro un
incription of which the following is
part: ''Hiero, the son of Hieroclea tho
Dorian, who wields the scepter of Hici-
ly, sends this vessel bearing in her tlm
fruits of the earth. Go thon, O Neptune, preserve in safety this ship over
the blue waves."

Road Making.
The very liberal appropriations
made for road work in tins province
ave a matter for congratulation
throughout the whole country. If
judiciously expended, this large
amount of money should go n good
way towards placing our roads in a
condition in which they will, to
some extent, meet the requirements
of settlement and trade. It is of
very great importance that the appropriations bo so expended ns to
secure tbe best results. We havo
already pointed out the folly of
putting off road work until lute in
tha season. Last year was in some
respects an improvement on preceding years, but even last year
much of the work was done too
late, and inBtead of being improved
in some instances the roads were
mado worse. The fiscal year does
not begin till the lst of July, and
appropriations mnde at the present
session of the legislature do not become available until that dato. But
in thu mean time we see no reason
why some of the work should not
go on. All the work of surveying
and locating the proposed roads
should bo done us early as possible
in the spring. Flans uud specifications should be prepared, tenders
usked, and the contracts let before
the commencement of the fiscal
yenr. Indeed work might be going
on in June, with the understanding
that payments would not be mnde
until July. We consider tins a
matter of very great importance.
Thousands of dollars have been
practically thrown away on roads
constructed too lute in tho season.
When the fall rains come these new
roads nre soft and unpacked. They
rapidly develop into soft mud
through whicli it is almost impossible to drag a team, and when
frozen thoy are too rough for anything. It is also to be hoped thut
gravel will be used for ull the main
roads. The first cost of a gravel
road will undoubtedly be considerable, but,it will unquestionably be
found the cheapest toad in the end.
Of course it will be impossible to
build all tho roads of gravel, There
nvo a large number of small settlements springing up in various parts
of the country, each ono of whicli
needs a road. Many of tliese settlements must bo content with such
roads as the resources of the province will admit. The government
hnvo shown a disposition to meet
as far us possible the wants of the
outlying settlements, and in the
course of timo we mny expect to
see good gravel rouds running in
every direction.
The Liquor Question.
It is already known to the readers
of Tiik Columbian thnt a proposal
to increase the liquor license fee in
this province to §1000 has been before the legislature. It is not intended to enforce this elnuse unless
the Dominion uot is put in operation,
und tlio numbor of licenses, consequently, very greatly reduced. We
nre inclined to believe that the Dominion net will not be enforced.
The Ontario government maintains
uncompromising hostility to it, nnd
Quebec has nlso entered a protest.
The lute decision of tlie privy council seems to ns clearly to indicate
that the .ict is beyond the powers
of tbe federal government. In tho
event of the federal act remaining
it dead letter, tho license system of
this province will not be materially
altered. We hud hoped that sov-
enil changes would bB made. Tho
license fee ought to be increased
materially: it is ridiculously low.
There is no room to doubt that
temperance sentiment iu Canada
ami the United States, us well as
in Great Britain, is increasing.
People who study the subject at all
must perceive that the evils of in-
teinpernnco will not curo themselves.
This question must bo dealt with by
legnl enactments. From late eastern exchanges we observe that the
Dominion Temperance Alliance held
its annual meeting at Ottawa about
tho beginning of this month. Mr.
J. J. McLaren, Q. 0. is reported to
have nddressed the meeting on tho
state of temperance legislation in
the country and what policy could
be adopted during tbe coming year.
The text from which he spoke wbb
divided into five parts, viz., the history of legislation; the clashing of
license laws; tho Scott Act; why it
has not been moro generally adopted
in Ontario und Quebec, and the
question of the advisability of culling for u simultaneous Scott Act
campuigii iu all possible counties
throughout the Dominion with u
view to demanding general prohibition next year.   He had predicted
last year thnt the privy council
would not sustain the opinions ex
pressed in parliament, that the local
legislature had no right to control
tho liquor traflio, and that all their
legislation foi- the subject was null
and void, and circumstances had
since shown his prediction to have
been correct. The case was now
somewhat different from what it
was when the ense of Hodge v. the
Queen wna brought before the privy
council, because there were then no
conilictitig laws. He regretted tlmt
there would be u contest between
the Dominion and the province
through the establishment of the
now act, which was something temperance people did not desire to see.
The press was on the side of temperance- and the house should bo
divided on the subject this vory
session. A resolution was adopted
asking the Dominion government
to grant permission to take a voto
on the Scott Act simultaneously in
a number of counties, and asking
the submission of a resolution in
the house of commons ufhrniing the
desirability of passing a prohibitory
law for the Dominion.
Tlie Cffiur d'Alenc Mines.
Prior to June, 1882, no prospector
had penetrated the wilds of tho Cceur
d'Aleue country. In the month named, Messrs. GUlet and Pritchnrd discovered a paying property. This first
paying claim is now known aa the
Wyant, Peters nnd Price, from the
names of the owners. It is located on
Pritchnrd creek, aud it waa from this
claim thnt a nugget weighing seven
ounces, which, devoid of impurities, is
valued nt $110, was obtained. The
height of the mountains nbove the
basin is about GOO feet. The width of
the gulch is about fitly rods, or 800
feot, The fall or dip of the bnsin iB
from one nnd a half to two inches to
tho rod. The altitude of the district
is much less than is generally supposed,
and a great denl less than almost
nny of the hitherto great camps.
The nltitude nbove the sen of Pen
d'Oreillo is 2,000 feet; thut of Rath-
drum, 2250 foet; and of Eagle City
only 2300 feet. Cceur d'Aleue city has
au altitude of about 2000 feet, the same
na Pen d'Oreillo. Snow usunlly commences to fnll in the yicinity of Engle
City nbout November lst, nnd continues until the 15th of Mny, when tho
freshets, incident to the melting snows
will put a stop to mining for a month
or more. It is liable to bo pretty wet.
Lust season nn immense nmount of
water came down from tho hills into
tho gulches, swelling Pritchnrd nnd
Eagle creeks into broad nnd very rapid
rivers. People would do well to bear
in mind tlint the area of the district
named, which hns a length of ten
miles, is nll thnt hua been materially
prospected. Tho other ia not yot sufficiently proapocted to cnnblo men to
judge of its character. There haa been
some discussion na to the legnl right of
minors in the district to hold, under
the old regime, 20 acres na a claim.
Tli^aluTsinkat.
London, Feb. 12.—/Y correspondent
at Suakim telegraphs: At last thu heroic garrison at Siukat has been butchered. For a fortnight they had been
eating roots and tree leaves. It wus
a feeble bund, indeed, which made a
sortie to die amidst rebel hordes. Tewtik Boy had harrnngued his men, saying that by fighting they might save
themselves, but by remaining thoy
must die from hunger in a fow days,
as Jlight waa impossible. Tho men,
thus animated with Tewfik Boy'B spirit,
destroyed tlio military stores, exploded
the magazine, tilled thoir pouches to
tho utmost with cartridges, and issued
forth (100 strong ugainst tho rebels.
Osman Digmnii's hordes rushed to
attack Tewfik Boy, nnd his men fought
nobly. For u long time they repulsed
every attempt to break their ranks,
but finally superior numbers prevailed,
nnd with a rush tho rebels burst
through one of the sides of the Egyp-
tinn square. A general massacre ensued, and uot n soul escaped. According to the Intest reports, only four
sick men, tumble to take part iu the
sortie, remained nt Sinknt, nnd they
wore spared by the rebels. Beforo
the sortie n rebel sheik approached
Sinkat and summoned Towim Boy to
surrender, saying that his life would
be spared, nnd the garrison answered
defiantly, reviling the rebels. During
tho sortie women nnd children followed in the rear of the soldiers in
large numbers, whom the rebels
killed.

The fire alarm was sounded about 4

surrounding cellular tissue, which was
tn a tumefied state with abrasion of

was a black eye.
A young doctor of twenty-six, but
who looked scarcely twenty, was presented in a salon. "What, monsieur,

replied the young physician, "but I

—From the French,
We understand that about 8000 wore

Port Moody trail. This money was
spent In slashing, and practical road-
builders all agree that it will cost more
to mako the road now than if it had

The authors of the last act of brigandage in molly have been discovered

In tho royal borough of Windsor,
England, the death rate for tho quarter ending last December was only 0.4
per 1,000, and not one death was due
to any preventable (infectious) disease,
This record is thought to be unparalleled, and it certainly shows that in
zymotic diseases protection really protects, Tlio death rate for all England
during the same quarter was 16.8, or,
excluding towns, 14,5,
Nanaimo Coai.—From a statement
published in the Free Press it seems
that the output of conl on the island
last year aggregated 216,184 tons.
This is less than 1882 by 65,816 tons,
and is the least since 1878. Thore is
no doubt but tho miners' strike was
the cause of tho decrease, for tho demand for Vancouver coal is certainly
not growing less. Of the output of
last year, 140,567 tons were exported
and 64,780 sold for local consumption.
Winter.—The oldest inhabitant can
scarcely remember a winter such as wo
aro uow having. There was vory littlo
winter nt all until February, but this
month has been remarkably cold.
Usually severe weather in this part of
British Columbia doos not last longer
than a week, but for nearly thrcu
weeks there has beon ice in the rivor,
with no present prospect of its leaving
us, All down the coast there has been
cold weather, Our telegraphic despatches state that there wns a foot of
biiow nt Seattle yesterday, and the
Columbia lliver is frozen up.
 : . ■» ,        	
Congo Land.—Henry M. Stanley
has discovered what is literally a new
empire. Under tho equator, iu the
basin of the Congo, lie has found a
donso population, whose numbers he
estimates at 40,000,000. Tho people
aro remarkably industrious, mid nre
born traders. Ho declares there is n
fine opening for trade iu the gums,
ivory, rubber, camphor, wood and
othor products of that fertile region.
Mr, Stanley has discovered another
immense lake, which ho oxplorcd for a
hundred miles. Ho calls it the Mntii-
tumba. He claims to have become the
great pence-maker of tho warring nations in equatorial Africa. Someday
a railroad will bo constructed up the
valloy of tho Congo, connecting central Africa with the ocean. This will,
in time, givo civilization access to the
secret recesses of tho dark continent.
Singular Tranck.—A singular instance of the inability of medical men
to distinguish between a trance and
actual death has just occurred iu
Leeds. Emma Whittukor, sixteen
years old, lias for a long time been
Buffering from consumption, and the
disease, it was bolioved, terminated
fatally on Tuesday last. Sho apparently breathed hor last early in tho afternoon, and the body was accordingly
washed and laid out in tho usual man-
nor. An undertaker wns called iu nnd
took the measurement for the coffin,
nnd othor preparations for tho funeral
were in courso. Late at night tho
mothor and a neighbor wero sitting in
tho kitchen when they were startled
by hearing ii noise upstairs, followed
by n cry of "Mothor." Much startled,
they went to ascertain wlmt it nil
meant, when they found tlio pour
girl, still wrapped in her grave olothus,
standing on tho top of the stairs complaining that sho was ver}' cold. She
was put to bed and medical aid summoned. Sho soon became quito rational, though, of courso, sho hud not
been told how far tho arrangements
hud progi-osscd towards hor burial.
This singular caso of trance is exciting
a good deal of interest both among
medical mon and thu publio generally.
—Mttnehetter Times.
 •- *—
Citv AuvKimsiNa.—< inr oity council must possess a singular notion of
tho principles upon which newspapers
are conduct*! Last year thoy asked
tenders for the city advertising in u
lump sum Of course no publisher
who protended tu conduct n newspaper on business principles could entertain such a singular proposal. The
Coi.umhian refused to tender atoll,
unless somo basis for nu intelligent
tender wore submitted. Tho Guardian
put in a toudor at, wo beliovo, 880,
nud got the contract. This year the
same unreasonable plan has been adopted. Tho. proprietors of this jour-
nnl declined, as usual, nud tlio Guardian tendered at 8120. We suspect
that the Guardian people folt cortnin
thore would bo no tender but tlieir
own, honco tho increased figure. But
the wholo affair is exceedingly stupid.
With just as much reason tlie council
might ask Mr. Hendry and Mr. Henderson to tender in a lump sum for
tho lumber that may be required for
new sidewalks this yoar; or nsk the
mnyor to tender in a lump sum for
supplying meat to the hospital, without stating how many patients would
reuuire to be fed. Wlmt would Mr.
Johnston say if hu were asked to louder on this basis for supplying boots,
and shoes to the immigrants who may
arrive during the year; or how much
would Mr. Elliott tako and supply
Columbia st. with calf We venture
to believe that not ono of those gentlemen would entertain so absurd a
proposal for an instant, and yet it is
no less ridiculous than tlio proposal
they havo deliberately made to tbe
oity newspaper*. Any publisher who
would tender on suoh a basis must
either name a sum largo enough to
cover every possible eutitingonoy, or
lie must value Jus advertising columns
at an oxtremely low price, In either

Extras.—Tho (rVooegenernllydoesn't
havo much praise for its political opponents, und the following extract from
its Ottawa correspondence need not bo
swallowed unconditionally: "Mr. Onderdonk, tho British Columbia railway-
contractor, is still here, and, it is understood, is pressing his demand for a
furthor subsidy on account of his contract, upon which he says money is
likely to be lost. The government are
anxious to assist Mr, Onderdonk, and
nro considering the most plausible excuse tlint can be put forward for giving
him u donation of half a million or so
from the public treasury. Mr. Onderdonk has already enlisted n number of
influential lobbyists in his behalf, some
boing Tory members of parliament. As
tho ministry cannot afford to quarrel
with Mr. Onderdonk thore is little
doubt that his demands will be complied with, If the shrewd American
contractor choso ho could no doubt "a
talo unfold" as to whore the Tory
bribery fund for tho elections of 1882
camo from, and tho means by which he
procured the rejection of Charlcbois'
tender. For his contribution to that
fund Mr. Onderdonk will now be "recouped" iu tho form of extras upon his
contract."

cio council.
Council met on Monday evening. Present—His Worship Mayor Dickinson,
and Councillors Deane, Hendry, Cunningham, Curtis, rk-iideritoti, Johnston,
and Elliott.
A communication was read from J, K.
Suter, offering to do the city's newspaper advertising In the Guardian exclusively for tho current year for ttio sum of
8120; also, from D. Robson & Co., stating that they declined to tender for advertising as theie waB no reasonable
basli- upon which to establish it tendor,
and that if the Council had naked for
tenders by the lino or inch or any other
mode of coming at n juat payment for the
work, they would have tendered, Councillor Henderson said that he thought
this tendering for doing the work uy
lump was going it blind; said it was an
'establishedfact that the Columbian had
the largest circulation, and he wished to
see it get tho work; however, it was far
better to have the work tendered for at
so much n line, Councillor Elliott
thought as Robson k Co. had uot tendered, they did not want the work;
Suter wanted it and he should have it.
Councillor Johnston said the same thing
occurred last year, and lie did not see
why Suter should not get the contract,
as he was the only one tendering. Councillor Deane said he did not understand
the word "exclusively" as used in Mr.
Suter's tender; if he meant that his pa-
Fier should be the exclusive one to pub-
ish city advertising, he (Deane) would
certainly oppose giving him the contract.
Councillor .Johnston moved, seconded
hy Councillor Elliott, that Suter be
awarded the contract at $120. Council,
lor Curtis, seconded by Councillor Henderson, moved on amendment, that the
tender be referred back to Mr. Suter for
an explanation as to the word "exclusively." Councillor Deane said if '-exclusively" meant only in regard to non-publication iu the Port Moody Gazette, all
right; but if it meant to exclude the
Columbian from getting an advertisement too, then he thought the- Council
had hotter not aesept the tender. The
amendment was carried by a vote of 5 to
2, and Johnston's motion was withdrawn.
A communication was received from
the Hyack Fire Co. with regard to the
steward matter, whioh was ultimately
referred to the Fire Committee,
A letter from Mr. Seabrook, of Victoria, was read, respecting the building of
sidewalks, over which the Councillors
morally had a good laugh.
Chief Engineer McColl, in a communication, asked leave to place the Hook
and Ladder truck in the agricultural hall
temporarily. Referred to Fire Committee, with power to act.
Tenders for coal oil ware opened and
read as follows: Kyle k Tilton, pearl oil,
83.75 per cose of 10 gallons; astral oil,
$3.75; starlight oil, $4.25; elaine oil, $4.-
25. From D. McPhaden—Bestpearloil,
""1 cents per gallon. From C. G. Major -Pearl, starlight or astral oil at $4
per case. From Chas. MoDonough—■
Excelsior oil at 40 cents per gallon. On
motion of Councillor Curtis, seconded by
Councillor Cunningham, the tender of
Messrs. Kyle k Tilton for pearl oil at
$3.75 per case was accepted.
A communication waa read from Chas,
Warwick, asking for grade on Royal avenue. Referred to Board of Works.
A lengthy discussion took place in
regard to the placing of lamps on lower
Columbia street, but it was settled by
ordering three new lamps to bo purchased, two to take the place of round
ones now in that vicinity, and one to be
placed at the bend in Columbia street,
on the plank road, with colored glass
fronting the river, to be of servico to
pilots during the night-time; alao, the
one at the foot of Front street to have
colored glass.
The following bills were passed: —
Columbian, $6.48; A, Burns, $2.50; F.
Forrest, $103,62; Jaa. Cuiniiigham&Co.,
$90.
Councillor Curtis asked for further
time iu which to submit the estimates
for St. Patrick's Ward.   Granted.
Councillor Cunningham asked for fur*
ther time in whioh to straighten up the
Corbould delinquent license matter.
On motion of Councillor Curtis, seconded by Councillor Henderson, the
Board of Works were authorised to construct water tanks for fire purposes as
follows: At the junction of Blackwood
and Columbia streets, at the junction of
Columbia and Douglas streets, and one
in the vicinity of the two city saw mills.
These tanks will be iu accordance with
the suggestion of the Chief Engineer.
Councillor Henderson said tbat if no water supply could be found for the one ht
the nulla, the Dominion Sawmill Co.
would aee that it was kept full. Councillor Elliott, chairman of the Board of
Works, wanted to know how the Council .. ished the work oa these tanks to be
done, by tender or by day work. Hi
was instructed to use bis own discretion
in the mutter,
Councillor Curtis wanted to hear something about the proposed new fire engine,
and Con iioillor Johnston gave some inter*
esting .ii iPtics gained from the Chief
Engim sr , I tho Victoria deportment.
He {Jv'. atoii) thought tho machine
Bhould be procured as soon as possible,
and the Clerk wns instructed to write
for catalogues.
Moved by Councillor Deane, seconded
by Councillor Hendry, that $180 bo paid
to the committee who wont to Victoria
to present certain important local measures to tht Provinoial Government,
Councillor Curtis said he did not understand that the committee were to be paid
more than expenses, but would urge that
the bill be paid. Councillor Elliott
thought $7 per day pretty steep wages
for easy work. His Worship tho Mayor
said lie thought it reasonable enough, as
he himself bad neglected his own business greatly to his loss in ordor to go,
and the same might be said of the other
members of the committee; but that, before he would have any wrangling or ill*
feeling over the matter ho would rather
not receive a cent. Councillor Cunningham was of the same opinion. Councillor Deane thought tho bill should be paid.
It was accordingly ordered paid, and a
vote of thanks tendered to the committee
for the beneficial results which they had
secured to the oity by their solicitations
to the government.
On motion of Councillor Curtis, tho

PROROGATION OF THE LEGISLATURE.
(Exclusive BlHpuIelicH IoThk OolumwAn)
Viutokia, Feb. 10. — Yesterday
morning, about .! o'cloek, an old man
named James Boase, living on Quadra
at., rose from his bed and was heard
by others in tho bouse to fall to the
floor. On being raised he was found
to be dead. Deceased, who was 05
years old, was a pioneer of this province, having first come to the country
in the Robt. Lowe in January 1803.—
Tho thermometer yesterday showed
10 degrees of froBt.—It is said that
Senator Nelson sailed from Liverpool
on Jan. 2nd, and only reached Ottawa
on Sunday The vessel was probably
disabled. The steamship Queen of the
Pacific arrived at the outer wharf at
9 o'clock last night, 59 hours from
San Franoisco, with passengers and
280 tons of froight for this port. She
will discharge into lighters alongside.
This will be her lost trip to this port.
Among her passengers are T. E, Ladner, wife and daughter, and W. fi,
Kyle and wife,—The prorogation of
the house of assembly, aftor a rather
long and brisk session, took place yesterday. The galleries were fairly full
and on tha floor of the bouse were
many Indies aud gentlmen. The
Lieutenant-Governor having ascended
the throne, tho clerk of the house
read the various bills passed during
the session, to whioh His Honor assented. The Speaker submitted a bill
entitled "An act for granting certain
sums of monoy for public service of
Erovince of B. 0." His Honor gave
is assent, and then delivered the
following speech:—Mr. Speaker and
Gentlemen of the Legislative Assembly: I am glad to find that during the
session of the legislature now closing
you hava shown that you realize the
changed condition and improved prospects of the province, and that your
labors have been largely devoted to
the consideration of measures having
in view the furtherance of settlement
and the establishment of new and the
extension of old industries. The settlement arranged between the Dominion and provincial governments, and
embodied in an act passed by you,
will be fully consummated when the
confirmatory measure introduced by
the premier of Canada into the house
of commons at Ottawa shall have been
ratified by the parliament there. The
benefits likely to accrue from tbo settlement of long pending disputes between tho Dominion and the province,
and the re-establishment of satisfactory relations, with the concomitant
advantages of Island railway construction, the opening to settlement of the
railway lands, and the completion of
the drydock, cannot easily be overestimated. The session has been
marked by more than usually important legislation. The land act, which
it has been my pleasure to approve,
is, I think, calculated to promote settlement and prevent the acquisition of
large areas of orown lands for speculative purposes, The object of the
bills on the Chinese question, whioh
you have passed, and of the addresses
which I have forwarded to hiB excellency tho Governor-General in council,
is* undoubtedly good. The new mineral net, I trust, will have the effect
intended of fostering the important
mining industries of the province.
The timber act is important, and it is
hoped will operate so as to protect our
valuable forests from spoliation, and
be productive of revenue, while not
in the least degree interfering prejudicially with the extensive lumber industries of the country. I am glad to
Iind that you have made liberal provision fur publio works iu the various
districts. The greatest care will be
exercised in expenditure with a view
to obtaining results calculated to advance tho genoral interests. It is
gratifying that immigrants in considerable numbers continue to seek homes
in our favored provinco. It will be
necessary to take immediate and active steps to open up new sections of
country for settlement purposes to
meet ns far as possible the tide of immigration which is setting in upon our
shores. In relieving you from further
attendance upon your duties, I sincerely hopo that our anticipations of
prosperity may be fully realized, and
that yeu may have the satisfaction of
Knowing that your patriotic efforts to
promote tho genoral welfare of the
country have been successful. Hon.
Mr. Robson, provincial secretary,
then formally announced that it was
the will of his honor tho Lieut.-Governor thut tho houso should be prorogued until Friday, the 18th day of
April next.
British Politics.
The Tribune's London correspondent
says:—Overwhelming proofs of the irresistible strength of the popular demand
have convinced tho Tories that the best
chanco of obstructing the progress of the
Reform Bill consists in embarrassing the
Ministry on Bide issues. Hence the
Tory leaders propose to make their first
attack, not on the Reform Bill, but on
the Egyptian policy of the government.
Notice has already been given that an
amendment will be moved to the Address and a division taken at the earliest
moment. The last week before the meeting of Parliament has been employed by
both sides iu briiiging their heavy artillery to the front. There has been a heavy
fire of speeches on every subject by politicians of every grade in both parties.
The cabinet has been engaged in arranging the programme of the session, in
framing bills, and in polishing the
Qucon's Speech. Mr, Gladstone, who
received four important deputations on
Thursday, added no knowledge of the
character of the coining measure, but
spoke firmly, oven sternly, of the necessity for resisting the threatened opposition, whatever its nature, direct or indirect, the latter being regarded by hiin
as more dangerous than the former. He
proclaimed the immovable resolve of tho
government to use every legitimate
means to carry the Reform Bill. These
deputations represent the trades unions
throughout the United Kingdom, the
agricultural laborers, for whom John
Arch spoke weightily, the miners, the
Clyde shipwrights, and workingmen generality. Besides tlie Leeds Conference,
which John Morley described as representing 540 Liberal associations in all
parts of tlie country, no previous demonstration of public opinion has made such
an impression or has spoken for st many
powerful classes.
HBHBEBT   SPENCER OS MODERN' LIBERAL-
ISM.
The Tribune's cablegram says Herbert
Spencer, in the Contemporary Review,
advances the paradox that Liberals are
Tories of a new type, and that modern
Liberalism is steadily enlarging the coercive interference of the State with individual liberty. He cites as examples,
tho inspection of Schools, the Cattle
Disease Act, and the Factories Acts, ad-
mltting that they have a good motive,
but insisting that they reverse former
Liberal principles. The whole article is
on ingenious extension of Mr. Spencer's
well-known argument that the State
should govern as little as possible.
THE IRISH PROGRAMME.
A London cable despatch says:—The
loaders of the Irish party will meet in
Dublin on Monday to decide upon a
polioy and concert plans for^jthe Parliamentary campaign. It is believed that
they wdl decide to follow the samo general course as hitherto in cose the Speech
from the Throne proposes no special measures for Ireland. Speech amendments
declaring the urgent necessity of immediate legislative reforms for Ireland will
be moved in the debate on the Address.
Each Nationalist member will be charged
to watch tho progress of the special measures with the closest attention. The
corporation of the city of Dublin havo
granted the use of the city hall to Parnell and his colleagues for the purpose of
holding the meeting. The Tribune's
London correspondent says:—-Tho attitude of the Irish party in regard to tho
Franchise Bill remains uncertain. The
latest account is that Mr. Parnell will
support the Tory demand for a statement of tlie Government's plan for a redistribution of seats unless the Ministers
pledge themselves that the present number of Irish members shall not be reduced, a pledge they could'neither give
nor keep,

licves that the Egyptian debate on the
Addfess will lost for as little as two days

far as to hint tliat real legislative business will not he allowed to begin till
March. The Parnellites are so bitterly
exasperated against tho Tory encouragement of Orange excesses that they will
do nothing to lielp obstruction. A proposal was evon contemplated of their
"dishing" the Tories by allowing Bradlaugh to take his seat, which their abstention from voting would do. A general friendliness to the Liberals might
tdso procure the condensation of the
connivance of Spencer and Trevelyan
with the Orange conspiracy, and thus
isolate and ruin thein. Their ruin is the
dearest wish of the Parnellites,
Opposition to Chliiese.
The earnest form of English legislation may be inferred from the bills
recently passed by the parliament of
British Columbia. One of these bills
relates to the Chinese who are now
residetit in the colony. It levies au
annual tax on every Chinaman over
fotirteon years of age ot $20. This
license is to be kept by the employer
and must bo produced to the inspector whenever called for. If the Chinaman wants to move to any other part
of tho colony he must have his photograph attached to his license. Stringent provisions for the suppression of
the vices of tho Asiatics are also inserted, and aro ijuito certain to bo
executed. The second bill excludes
all Chinese from the colony under a
penalty, bnt of what nature is not
stated in the telegraphic summary.
Anybody found assisting thom to gain
.jajrentri.TH-e is liable to a penalty of
$200.*" IJpe of theso laws—that for
exclusion--will go into effect if the
Dominion parlinmout consents, In
an evil hour, us many of hor citizen's
now believe, British Columbia threw
in her destllues with those uf Canada,
The iiiducemunl was a railroad which
was eertiiin to be built anyhow, Two
or three yoars ago British Columbia
passed an equally stringent bill for the
oxulli-dol. of the Chinese, but (lie
Dominion parliament refused to ratify
it. In this respect it acted more despotically towards its nowly acquired
territory limn ihe home government,
which in the case of the Chineso exclusion bills passed by somo of the
Australian colonies, acquiesced when
the proposition was persistently pressed,
though its relations to China are Infinitely more intimate and extensivo
than ours, The excuse alleged by the
Canadian government for n refusal to
accede to the wishes of British Columbia was that the Chinese wore needed
for lhe luiildingof tho Canadian railway. But in the nature of things
that form of opposition must eventually disappear, The law for the regulation of Chinese uow resident in the
colony will presumably go into effect
anyhow. That is a matt or of internal police about which the Dominion
government should have nothing tu
say. This legislation on the part
of the adjoining British territory
ought not to be without its
weight in Congress. It shows the nil-
pervading opposition to Chinese immigration. The laws referred to nre
more drastic than any that have been
proposed in California—-they make no
exceptions. But it is supposed at the
East that none but tho vaguo class,
known as hoodlum.-, nre opposed to
the coolies in this state. Tt is only
by persisting that we are enabled to
collect n two-dollnr poll tax from theso
interlopers. All that is obtained
from the whole crowd does not pay
the expense of punishing their criminals.—San Franeiteo Bulletin.
London, Feb. 15. — The German
press says the submission of the tribes
of Merv to Russia is worse for England
than the disasters in the Soudan. It
comments on the remarkable success
of Russian policy in Central Asia,
wliich is always directed against England. If tho Russians should stand
again before tho walls of Constantinople, the English would be disabled
from commanding them to halt, as in
1878. Russia will become the neighbor of India, and will bo able at any
moment to creato a disturbance in
Northern Asiu. Now only Afghanistan is left between Russia nnd India.
The frontier tribes aro always ready to
invade the rich Indian provinces if
their rear is covered, and this they
(Russia) can now guarantee.

Degma, tho rebel leader, massing men
near the defile, closing the road from*
the coast at the spot where he defeated
Nubar Pasha and Col. Moncriof, It
is supposed Osman Degma's plan ib, if
ho fails to reduce Tokar bofore the
arrival of English troops, to give battle
at the defile, Sheig Wonghari. Col.
Wossagdaha, sent from Suakem to stir

that ho only succeeded in securing a
promise of neutrality from the chief.
Admiral Hewit is advancing his lines
4 miles outside of Suakem. His trenches are within rango of the guns of the

Winnipeg, Man., Feb. 10.—The
delegates of the Farmers' Union returned from Ottawa last night. Thoir
memorial to the government requesting the rodress of grievances under
which the people are Buffering received
no attention. They report that noth-
icg will be conceded by the government, People here aro greatly incensed
ut the government's action, und many
advocuto open rebellion. The council
of the Farmers' Union have called a
convention to meet ou Murch 5th at
which the whole North-West will be
represented nnd decisive action taken.
The council in their circular say, "We
have now arrived at a grave crisis in
the history uf our province, whore
every interest is vitally concerned.
Laying aside all party and political
feelings, let us Manitobans continue
to demand our just rights, and unite
as ono man to secure them." A feeling of intense indignation at the Dominion government's actiun is express
ed ou all sides, uud should Norquay's
mission to Ottawa prove futile it is
impossible to say what extreme measures our people may be driven to to
enforce justice from tho tyrannical
government. Tho revolutionary spirit
is spreading among the people, and
probably will not stop short of secession from the confederation.
CAino, Feb. 17.—Gen. Gordon has

Suakem, Feb. 17.—Rebels fired on
the forts to-day, but soon retired.
Somo of the rebel shots reached the
military head-quarters. Baker Pasha
had a narrow escape.
Soakem, Feb. 17.—The leader of
friendly tribes reports that when Osman Digma receives the guns captured
from Baker Pasha he will attack Suakem. Friendly Arabs warn the garrison against a night attack. Spies
brought a letter from the commander
of Tokar saying that the rebel's guns
daily kill sumo of the garrison. He
asks that two men-of-war be sent to
Trinkitat to make a demonstration in
his support until troops arrive. The
rebels have summoned the Tokar garrison to surrender, promising if they
do thoir lives will be spared.
Suakem, Fob. 18.—The commander
uf Tokar writes that he has supplies
suOicient to Inst tu the end of tho
month, and asks for arms and ammunition. Tho harbor at Suakem is too
small to contain all the vessols ordered
there. Transports have been ordered
