current Events nnd Opinions.
The political situation in England
t    obscure in every aspect but one,
and thut is tlie intensity of feeling.
For the time the point of greatest
and most   excited interest is the
Irish question.   The riots and the
Socialist meetings, mid the condition which they disclose, und the
foreign question in the j-Egean and
in India, are subordinate to what is
generally felt to be the question of
the empire itself.   Nothing is more
notable than .the breach between
Mr. Gladstone and many of his oldest and strongest friends.   It is not
too strong a statement to say tlmt
they fear national dishonor under
his leadership in the practical surrender of a part* of the imperial
power.  The assertion that tlie Irish
demand is made by the great majority of Irishmen, these Englishmen meet by a flat denial.   They
hold that tho one and a quarter
million of Protestants by the last
census, and a   similar number of
"royalist Catholics" and people of
no religious connection, make a full
half of the people, and that the
National  League rules in Ireland,
as the Secessionists ruled in Virginia and and in other Union-loving
portions of "tho South," by intimidation, compact and active organization, boycotting, and general unscrupulous! icss.    The shiftless and
landless have been won by the cry
of   "No rent," and   tho Catholic
clergy, who wero largely opposed to
tho movement for home rule, have
been gained by the prospect of a
Catholic majority in an Irish parliament,     Those Englishmen hold
that ignorant peasants wore led in
squads liy the priests to thc polls,
and voted under the eye of  boycot-
tera and  Nationalists as Virginians
voted undor the supervision of So-
" cessionists.   Tho English party finds
proof in the figures of tho election
that "there were far more stay-at-
homes, in proportion to the wholo
legal number of voters iu Ireland,
than in tho State of New York at
tho last Presidential election." There
is tm equally positive denial of the
assertion that the land is generally
owned  by foreigners.    On tho contrary, the English party appeals to
tho census to show that the vast
majority of landlords are Irishmen,
who own thc farms aud receive the
rents.
The practical answer to such
statements and to such facts, if facts
they are, is that tlie majority which
accepts the leadership of the minority concedes that the latter shall
net and speak for all. The practical
Irish opposition to the National
League seems to be confined to Ulster, and the Ulster protest is very
strong. But it can do no moro
than protest, Thc Irish party has
the power to obstruct all legislation
and to demolish every ministry
until its demands are conceded.
It is revolutionary under legal
forms. Now tho right of armed
revolution is defined by Americans
to bo the right to resist intolerable
oppression. ft is the situation
when tho evils of war nre held to.
bo less than that of longer endurance of existing wrongs and the
hopelessness of legal relief. Revolution under legal forms is that
situation where all public business
is suspended until a certain legal
relief is allbrdcd. Hut for tho
moral justification of this courso, as
for that of armed revolt, there
must bo nu open and honest declaration of reasons, an appeal to the
approval of mankind such as the
American colonies made in 1770.
It is this course wliich raises the
movement, whether armed or legislative, from the category of mere
rebellion against taw to the dignity
of.,a justifiable redress of grievances.
To thc demand, therefore, of an
Irish parliament the English party
replies, tirst, that Ireland iit not
governed an a colony or dependency,
but as an integral portion of tho
United Kingdom, having her full
representation in parliament, aud is
thus qualified to look after hor own
interests, as Scotland, with a much
smaller representation, docs most
effectually, Consequently a separato parliament is not necessary for
the redress of any grievance, It
replies, secondly, that no practical
grievance whatever has been hrought
forward, nor has auy motion been
mado by Parnell. Ho took'at once
to wrecking the legislature liy obstruction and inciting revolt iu Ireland. In nll the speeches and writings of tho Leiiguo loaders there is
no political grivance whatever mentioned except the union itself, And,
third, this English party says that
Protestant Ulster jb under exactly
the same laws and stands in exactly
the same relation to Ireland ns tho
Catholic provinces, and she is as
The British Columbian.
VOLUME 29
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1886.
NUMBER 22
for §alc or fo f
cuinstances this party holds that to
abandon the union by the grant of
an Irish parliament is to yield to a
revolution which can plead no
grievance; to turn over the most
intelligent, industrious, tnd civilized population of a constituent
part of the empire to its most ignorant, savage, and superstitious element; and to divide the empire and
wrong a great body of people for
no real or practical reason whatever.
This is the argument of the English
Liberals who have separated from
Mr, Gladstone, and who dread his
notion in Ireland, and it is unquestionably a strong argument. The
practical reply to it seems to be that
whatever the right or wrong of the
situation, it cannot continue, nnd'
that its solution must be either in
a policy of severity or of concession.
There can be no doubt that public
opinion in England would not tolerate Irish independence. If, then,
concession which preserves the essential supremacy of the empire
will not suffice, thero will remain
nothing but tho practical yielding
of the Irish League, or English
maintenance of the union by force.
—Harper's Weekly,
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
Wednesdny Mr. MoLeeae, on a
question of privilege, said he had
been misreportcd in his remarks on
the Saanich Railway bill. What he
had said was that when the two
railway bills to connect New Westminster with Washington territory
were before the liouso the principal
opposition came from the island
members and that one of the argu-
ments adduced against the bills was
that if the roads wero built the
traffic would' go direct to New
Westminster to tho detriment of
Victoria. Now mark the difference.
When the bill for n railroad on the
island wus brought beforo the house
he believed thc majority of the
mainland members would support it.
Mr. (Jalliniith moved thc second
raiding of the bill granting a leaso
of part of tho bed of Findlay creek
for mining purposes. Tho bill proposed to givo a lease for 25 years,
and one of tho conditions was that
tho company would pay $200 a year,
and expend during tho tirst two
years §2,000, not less than §10,000
during tho succeeding three yenrs,
and 61,000 overy year afterwards.
After considerable debate tliis clauso
was modified as follows: The company lo oxpend JfriOO tho lirst yoar,
?1500 the second year, §2000 tho
third year, 83000 tho fourth year,
8SO0O the fifth year; and $1000 a
year afterwards until tho lease expires. A clause wns also inserted
to prevent Ohinese obtaining any
interest in the lease.
The sitting ou Thursday was occupied almost entirely with the bill
grunting a charter to the Victoria
and Snnnich Ruilwny. The New
Westminster it Port Moody Tolephone bill nnd the Coquitlam Waterworks bill were advanced towards
completion.

A Few Facts About Scotland.
In 1841 the population of Scotland
was about two million* and a half.' It
ia is now nearly four millions. But it
is more In wealth—a generally admitted if less legitimate ground of weight
in the councils nf tho stale—that the
Northern Kingdom has, since tho
general peace, advanced, and tbat with
a rapidity absolutely beyond n precedent. About thirty years ago the
writer of this note, from a consideration of tho income tu returns, Ac,
derived an inkling of Scotch prosperity,
and shortly afterwarda the Duko of
Argyle, from a publio platform, asserted that tho progress of tho great
transatlantic republic, during the period reforred to, fell far short of that
of his native country. Mr. M. O.
Mulhall, a well-known statistician, has
placed the fact beyond doubt by an
approximate estimate of the total
valuo of the Threo Kingdoms for 1840
and 1877, computed frum tho probate
returns. In an article in the (Wrui-
jsormtj Biistkti for February, 1882, ho
states these aa follows:

Scotland is thus shown tn possess
more wealth for population than England, and to hare taken England'!
place as the richest country in the
world, though so poorly giftod by
nature. We may, observes Mr. Mulhall, search European annals since tbe
time of Alexander of Macedon, and
we shall Hnd nothing to equal the risrj
of Scotland in the above poriod. It jH
a no less remarkable fact thit tbe
criminal convictions in Scotland a) nee
1840 hnvo declined nearly 60 per -cont,
resulting in the closing, during the
same period, of sixteen prlao'.u for
want of occupants. Indeed, 'out for
ono Irish colony, as is 'ovido nt from
the patronymics of tho evil d ,,ors still
brought to justice, the oiriiiii ry would
be nin.ml crimeless. With, reiard to
another important elemo'.it in this
question, education, Scotlr nd .ill returns tho old pre-oiniuo'.ico orer the

1 n the report of proceedings in
tlie legislature which appears on the
lirst page of this paper, Mr. Mc-
Leesc makes a statement tlint ought
not to escape attention. He states
thut tlio bill asking a charter for
the proposed railway from this city
south wns defeated in the house because island members were afraid if
these roads were built trade would
come to this city from the sound
instead of passing through Victoria
and paying tribute there! This is
a beautiful confession, and gives us
additional proof, if more proof was
needed, of the intoii.se selfishness of
the people of the capital. Is it any
wonder we sometimes have to fight
the Colonist vigorously on its sectionalism!
On the fourth page of this paper
we publish ii report of what Senator
Mclnnes is said to have given utter-
auce to in the senate. Wc observe
that some of the papers are berating the senator in terms that are
anything but complimentary. Tt
seems to us this is not quite called
for. Senator Mclnnes had no business to represent the people of Victoria and Nanaimo as starving, for
the representation is not true. Some
Ohinamen were certainly on the
point of starvation, but we have
heard of no such instance among
white persons. It is doubtful, too,
whether the commercial depression
in this province is greater than it
has been in the last 12 years. There
has been considerable depression,
but it has not been disastrous in
many cases. But there is u great
deal of truth in what Senator Mc
lr.nes says about the Chinese grievance. It would have been very fortunate for the country if the federal government liad apprehended
the Chinese question in time to
adopt measures for preventing the
evil acquiring such threatening
proportions. It is, as the senator
says, very muoh like shutting the
stable door after the horse has escaped.
Sir John sustained-
Forty-four is the federal government's majority in the present session. Although the vote was not a
direct issue on the Riel question, it
is believed that it showed the
strength of the two sides, and that
tho same vote may be looked for on
the main question. There is no
doubt that a good deal of uncertainty existed in the minds of certain persons as to the outcome of
tlie Ilie) debate. Even such thorough-going Tories as tlie Colonist
had begun to view the situation
.with alarm, and to misrepresent
the attitude of the parties on this
question. But well-informed observers of public events never believed thut the government of Sir
•John would fall on tho Riel question. Indeed, it has been already
stated that the astute Tory leader
might elect to go to thc country on
this question as the best card upon
whicli to make an appeal to the electors. It cannot be denied that the
position taken liy Sir John on the
execution of Riel was both populi
with a great majority of Canadians,
and ertiroct as a matter of stato
policy. Although then! is no room
to doubt that the rebellion grew out
of substantial grievances on thc
part of the half-breeds, no one will
say that thero was justification for
, the acts of bloodshed for which
Riel is personally responsible. An
effort has been made by the Tory
press to misrepresent thc attitude
of the Reform party on this Riel
question. It has been stated that
Mr. Blake as well as his followers
were opposi-d to the uxfiuutiou of
Riel, and that they wished to defeat
the government on this ground.
Nothing is further'from the fact.
Upon tlie propriety of the execution there has been much diversity
of opinion, among members of both
politicnl parties. But the reformers as a party have never espoused
the cause of Riel or committed
themselves to any specific policy
respecting him. They have held
that the rebellion was to a great
extent the consequence of mnladimn
iatratiou in the North-WeHt, and
that Sir John and his government
must be held responsible for that
maladministration. Beyond this
neither Mr. Blake nor his party has
gone; and Mr. Blake oould hardly
take any othor ground. It must
he admitted that for holding the
government responsible for the re-
Iwllion there » aome ground at least.
The facts brought to light during
last session, and which have subsequently como out, and the action
of the government itself in settling
tho half-breed claims since the rebellion, are enough to convince any
impartial person that a great deal
of mismanagement and corruption
had marked the conduct of public
affairs in tlia North-West. Mr.
Blake might not dispute the justice
of the execution of Riol, and he
might at the same time hold the
government strictly responsible for
its neglect of tho North-West. This
is precisely what he is doing, aiul
it is because of tho unobjectionable
character of the proceeding that he
has been misrepresented.
Provincial License Laws.
There are several amendments
proposed to the provincial license
laws, but it may be doubted whether any radical change will be made
by the present house. Not long
ago it was stated by one of the
ministers that the government had
under consideration tho question of
largely increasing the license fees.
Mr. Cunningham has also given
notice that he will usk that the
prayer of the petitions sent in to
close all bars on Sunday bo granted.
Both of these proposals are in the
right direction. There cannot be
found any satisfactory defence of
the Sunday liquor traffic. On all
hands it is admitted to bo a bad
traffic, and while this admission
prevails it is difficult to understand
why the grocer and the baker
should be prevented from doing
business on Sunday, whilo liberty
is given to the liquor seller. Of
high license we are in favor. It
will not do to interpose the objection that all laws licensing an evil
are wron^, and that, therefore, high
license is an evil which ought not
to be tolerated. This is begging
tho question. The point to be considered is whether we shall have
high or low license—not whether
we shall have high license or no
license at all. Statistics and facts
enough have been produced to convince us that the results of high
license are, generally, to increase
the revenue and to decrease the
amount of drinking. It has always
been accepted as a fact that a reduction in the number of saloons will
be followed by a reduction in the
amount of drinking. Very high
license undoubtedly produces the
first effect, and the second will naturally follow. If prohibition can
be secured and enforced, let us have
prohibition; but if it cannot, let us
make the most of the restrictions
that are within our reach, lt need
scarcely be mentioned that the provincial liquor laws now in force are
utterly inadequate to keep the trallic
within reasonable limits. They
afford very little protection to society at all. Not many days ago,
in this very city, a woman applied
at this office to ascertain what steps
were necessary to prevent her husband from obtaining liquor. She
stated that he has become such a
sot that she can no longer tolerate
him or put up with thc horrible
language to which he gives utterance in his drunken folly. There
is no law to meet the case. The
liquor dealers may sell to this wo
man's husband without restraint.
They may change him from a kind
protector and provider into an
abusive fiend, but there is no redress for the woman or her family.
There ought, to be. The law of this
land, like the laws of other lands,
ought to hold the liquor dealers
responsible for the consequences of
their actions, and when they are
notified not to soil to a person, the
notification ought to carry with it a
penalty that would command obe.
dience. In many other respects
our license law is wanting, and we
hope to see in the next parliament
at least a majority of men willing
to make the law what it ought to be.

hawk fell senseless upon the floor, and

month, whioh says: "We regret very
much to havo to announce that the
Rev. C, J, Brenton has been obliged
to resign his position as principal of
Lorne College," It will be gratifying
to Mr. Brenton'B friends to know that
other counsels have prevailed.

Football.—On Saturday last the
return match between New Westminster and Lorne College tuok place on
Townsend's field, under association
rules. The home team mustered
much stronger on this occasion than
they did on the last. Two three-
quarters was the time played. The
college having won the toss, defended
the south goul, with the wind in their
favor; the home team kicking off, Fast
play on both sides was the order of the
first three-quarters, when, time being
culled, nothing hud been obtained by
either side. During the second three-
quarters tho homo team defended the
south goal, and soon, with the favorable wind, showed that they intended
winning. After some good play a goal
was kicked by Johnson from a clever
pass from Turner. Before time was
called New Westminster obtained two
more goals, thus winning by three
goals to nil. For the college, Watson,
Musgruvo, and Fisher played up welt.
Tumor, Corbett, and Winter deserve
mention for the home team.
Wuiskey.—On the (ith inst., at
Scotch Creek, u serious stabbing affair
took place. Considerable drinking had
boen going on when more or leas
disputes ni;d somo fighting ensued.
Finully Charles Arbuckle not roughly
handled by his partner, William Lee,
Sunn ufter, while Leo was lying in
camp, Arbuckle rushed in and with a
dirk knife made nine stabs upon the
body of his partner Lee—one of tho
cuts penetrating tho left lung. The
would-be assassin fled to the mountains. The men near the camp did
what they could to stop tlm bleeding,
und immediately sent fur a doctor.
Dr. Tunstall secured some good men
nnd proceeded by liund-car to Shuswnp
Lake, and crossing over to the camp
rendered the injured mnn professional
assistance. Lee oould not be removed
but is receiving care and at last accounts was improving. Oflicer Smith,
took a few specials and proceeded to
Scotch Oreek, but nothing could be
learned as to the whereabouts of Arbuckle. It is thought he will leave
the country.—Kamloops Sentinel.

Mr. W. H. Blake, who arrived
from Granite Oreek on Monday night,
reports things looking up at the mines.
Business men havo made extensive
preparations for the anticipated spring
rush, Quito a number of new buildings have gone up during the winter,
some intended for stores, some for
boarding houses, others for saloons,
ifcc. The Mclntyre, Woodland &■
(lillis sawmill at Granite Creek is
nearly complote, and is probably in
operation now. It is oxpected that
this will produce a considerable fill in
lumber, whieh hu hitherto been very
dear. It is reported that tbo mill will
cut lumber for about $50 a thousand:
it has been ub high as 10 or 12 cts. a
foot. Men are arriving at the minu
almost every day, mostly by the Hope
trail Mr. Blake met upwards of 160
on thii trail between Hopo and the
mines. Thn trail wu in very passable
condition. There is lots of snow; at
the aummit it is probably 10 feet deep.
Many men have gone in with heavy
pucks of provisions, which, Mr. Blake
Bays, is n mistake. Along the trail
there are plenty stopping places, with
good accommodation, and there are
lots uf provisions in tho mines. Along
tlio route mny bo seen tobogans aud
other conveyances that have been abandoned by persons going to the mines
with packs. Mr. Sturrott, the government agont, will open the trail as early
us possible, but flint will not probably
be in less than oue month or six weeks.
There aro now probably from 500 to
000 whito men, nud nearly half as
many Chinamen at tho mines. Prices
have nut materially changed. Flour is
85 a suck, beans l'2\ ets., bacon 40
ots,, tea 75 cts., sugar 25 ctB., coffee
50 ots., potatoes 10 cts., beef 12$ cts.,
venison quito plentiful all winter
at about $5 the carcass, butter
75 ets., eggs 81.50, conl oil 815 ner
case, tobacco 81, nails 20 ets. per lb.,
Bhovels 82, picks 83.25, gold pans
81.50. Meals on the trail from Hope
nro about as follows: 14-mile house,
ridels.; Cedar Flat house, 75cl«.; Summit limine, _l; Bromley's, 50 cts. During the winter preparations havu lieen
mnde tu carry un mining operations
vigorously as soon an tho season opuns,
aud peoplo look forward with confidence to the result,   Prospecting per*
ties have been out nearly all winter
and several of them have got very on
oouraging prospects. As soon as Bpring
opens, prospecting, as well as mining,
is sure to become very brisk, A company called the ConfidcnceCunsulidated
Mining Co. has been formed and has
taken up 4,300 feet of ground on the
Tullameen River. This is tho largest
company in the camp.

British Columbia's Exhibits.
7 CAR LOADS FOR THE COLONIAL EXHIBITION
The British Columbia contributions
to the above exhibition filled seven
ears, three of which reached Chicago
un the lst inst,, and the last left Tacoma at 4 a.m. on Monday the 8th inst.
GrosB weight is considerably over 100,-
000 lbs—of this probably- the timber
and timber products exhibit reached
50,000 lbs., coul about 28,000, cereals
and farm produce nearly 3,000, manufactured goods, etc., etc., make up the
babance.
It is* much to be regretted that a
number of manufacturers and others
in the city who promised to contribute,
in tho end failed to do so. Tbe only
exhibit in door and sash factory line
from Victoria is four doors from the
establishment of Johnson, Walker &
Flett. It will be seen from the list
below that thc Royal City Planing
Mill Co., New Westminster, has made
a splendid exhibit in these goods which
the Victoria firms might have emulated with credit to themselves and the
city. Bookbinding, color printing,
harness and saddlery, cigar manufacturing, the foundries snd other industries carried on here are entirely unrepresented. Notwithstanding all this
the province will make a creditable
showing when everything is placed on
exhibition. The following is the list
of exhibitors and exhibits:

Editor Columiua.w—As one of your
correspondents, by name Peter Hansen,
has seen fit to bring my name before the
public iu the above controversy, I now
ask the liberty to place a few facts before
the people with reference to the same,
but more especially with regard to the
work done on the new jail, Now this
Peter Hansen was engaged by mc as a
practical tinsmith and plumber on the
23rd of Sept., 1885, and I discharged
him on the 3rd Oct. (ten days) for tho
simple reason that I considered his room
more valuable thau his services, as he
was incompetent to do work intrusted to
lum in a workmanlike manner. Again,
he says lie was "foreman of the job, but
he omits to state that the work on the
jail was about two-thirds completed at
tlio time he wns engaged by Mr. Cunningham. The only hands employed on
the work previous to Ids engagement
being Mr. Thomas Kennedy (an apprentice), J. B. Felix, who is well known in
this city; Henry Cunningham, another
apprentice and son of Mr. Thomas Cunningham, a brother of the sub-contractor.
The tirst named young man is a son of
the government superintendent, James
Kennedy. This is the skilled labor that
was employed up to the timo of Mr.
Hansen's arrival on the scene, and it is a
question whether the addition of hia skill
made auy improvement on the character
of the work. Ho may well say that he
only "pretends" to be a judge of good
work and a poor pretence it is, "Still
Another." Under this heading you publish a letter signed by Messrs. Turnbull
k McKay, stating that the work was
done by Mr. Cunningham in a first-class
miuuicr. The letter is a very nice one,
Mr. Editor, but there is something exceedingly strange about this and Mr.
Hansen's letter. When the last-named
gentleman left my employ he was unable
to write his own name; yet now he blossoms forth us a newspaper correspondent;
and again, Mr. McKay, of the firm of
Turnbull k McKay, gratuitously informed mo that tho work waa a disgraco to
any plumbing shop, and was not half
done, but what could be expected, as
only a lot of boys were employed on the
job, and he also asserted that "inside of
two years time the work would have to
be done over .again." I can leave the
public to decide which opinion expressed
by this gentleman is right. His last
statement curiously appears in print at
tlie same time as Air. Hansen's. Query:
Was not some influence brought to bear
for tlieproduetiou of both these epistles t
Strange to say our worthy M. P, P. was
in town ou Friday afternoon and returned
to Victoria on Saturday morning. [The
letters were all handed iu long before
Mr. Jus, Cunningham arrived on Friday.
—Eo.] Mr. James Kennedy is "still
another" correspondent, and says that he
challenges investigation. I plainly assert
that au examination into the work done
under his supervision on this building
would show the publio that in a great
number of ways the work haa not been
done according to the specifications and
iu a manner that the government should
have demanded. Will Mr, Kennedy
deny that when any differences arose between the contractor and himself, all
matters in dispute were referred to Mr.
Cunningham, who invariably decided
against Mr. Kennedy? Again, he says
that Mr. Cunningham wns the '-sub-coil-
tractor": will he explain how that gentleman obtained the sub-contract, and
wus any other firm allowed to bid for the
job ? Perhaps it is tho same as the pipe
supplying, when 2,000 feet of pipe were
ptireli-ir-ied in the plaeo of 1,500 feot, leaving 500 feet for which tlio government
havo no use. Mr. Cunningham lays the
blame on Mr. Kennedy: it is to be hoped
tliat all the smoko and fog has cleared
away by this time. Mr. K. is very
proud of tho serviced he has rendered
tlie government} ho has never solicited
employment nor allowed any scamping of
work (?)
I am afraid, Mr. Editor, that I am
trespassing on your time and space, but
I want a word or two with you: (1) I
admire the ingenious plan you have laid
out for drawing public attention away
from yourself and driving it in other
channels, ('2) How ignorant you can be
when it suits your purpose. "To know
or not to know," that is the question.
In your issue of March 10th you make a
very feeble attempt to defend Mr. Cunningham and say that "Merchant" states
many things that aro not true. What
proof have you produced to verify this
statement: your bare word is not sufli
cient evidence: you have too elastic i
memory for that. (3) One fact you have
proved to everyone's satisfaction, that is
that Mr. Cunningham has broken the
law and ought to be punished. Yet you
don't think he wilt be and as a palliation
of i his offence you say others have done
the snmo thing. "Two wrongs do not
make a right." Punish them au, and do
not admit that the government of British Columbia are powerless to punish
law-hroakers even If they are M. P. Ps,
(4) One bit of advice to you and then I
have done: you show your hand too
plainly, sir, to gull the public; como out
in your true colors, drop the "Independent" title and sail under yeur own flag,
villi a government supporter. You will
then have no trouble to hide your parti*
ality and the public in general will have
a better opinion of you.
E. S. Scoili.au.
[We have a few remarks to make on
tliu concluding portion of this letter. (1)
Mr. Scoullar need not admire tho "ingenious plan" we have laid out to shield
ourselves. Our remarks on the 10thin.it.
wcic perfectly frank, and thero was neither a wish nor an attempt to conceal
anything then at issue. (2) Mr. Scoullar
insinuates that when we denied sll knowledge of the faulty charucterof the work
doiif by Mr. Cunningham ou tho gaol,
wc^wcro guilty of falsehood, and asks
what proof we have produced, The
charge made in "Merchant's" letter was
tbat we had a knowledge of the bad
work and failed to expose it. This we
denied emphatically ami without reserve,
and we repeat the denial now. Doea Mr.
Scoullar imagine for one moment thst
whatever be chooses to assert will stand
against an explicit denial made by one
who must know whereof he speaks! It
is he who must put forward proof if he
dues not wish to lio under the chargo of
baviug misrepresented the facts. (3)
We have offered nothing at all in palliation of Mr. Cunningham's offence against
the independent'! of parliament, and Mr.
Scoullar cannot quote anything of the
kind to support his assertion. (4) Mr.
Sooullar'a bit of advice is just about as
impertinent as the rest of his letter. If
he supposes that it Ib the part of an independent newspaper eitlcr to retrain from
expressing nu opinion ou political qucs*-
tlona or to pursue every man who commits a breach of the law, ho has a good
deal yet to learn in the sthere of journalism. The only kind ot Independence
that liu evidently wants Is the kind that
will gratify him by relentlessly pursuing
Mr. Cunningham ami denouncing the
government for the existence of circumstances over which, aa wo have already
shown, it had uo control. Our advice to
Mr. Scoullar is to learn that the opinions
of otller people are sometimes worth as
much attention nnd their assertions en-
led to us hearty a belief as his own,
anil that is not always safe to venture
upon a contest until the proofs have been
tared. In this controversy he has given
assertions without end, but not a
single proof of anything.—fen.]

SPECIAL DESPATCHES.
Sandy Hook, Mar. 14.—Tho steamer
Oregon was run into by a schooner be
tween 3 and 4 o'clock this morning, east
of Fire Island. She commenced sinking
at once. The passengers and crew,
about 800 in all, were transferred to the
German Bteamer Fulda, which arrived at
the bar at 5:25 p. m. Thc Oregon was
entirely abandoned and sank at 1 p. in.
The ship was in charge of chief oflicer,
the captain being below at the time the
collision occurred. The schooner struck
her u few feat forward of the bridge,
tearing a lurge hole iu her side. Boats,
after some difficulty, were manned and
towered into the water. The ladies first
got into tho boats, and were transferred
to the pilot boat and schooner Kanuie A.
Gorham. From 8 to 11 a. m. the work
of transferring passengers was proceeded
with, and all were transferred in safety,
not a single life being lost, and at 12:15
p. m. they were were all safely transferred to the steamer Fulda. The colliding schooner, name unknown', was not
seen until the moment she struck the
steamer, atthoug there were two officers
ou the bridge and three men on the lookout. No trace of the schooner aftor collision: supposed to have sunk with all ou
board as soon as she got clear from tbe
steamer. Loss by the sinking of tho
Oregon estimated as follows: steamer,
91,125,000; cargo, §500,000; personal effects of passengers, §150,000; total,
81,775,000.
London', Mar. 14,--The Observer says
that at a cabinet council yesterday measures submitted by Mr. Gladstone for
home government of Ireland wero unfavorably received, and that thc proposal
if persisted in at all will lead to a dissolution of the cabinet. The Observer
states that Mr. Gladstone's draft as
printed and handed to the cabinet deals
exclusively with expropriation, for which
a colossal sum will be required. The administration of the fund is to be entrusted to an Irish local body, the con*
stitution of wliich is left a blank in the
draft, but which the ministers were informed would be of the character of an
Irish parliament.
London, Mar. 15.— The Daily Netos
says Mr. Chamberlain disagrees with
Mr. Gladstone not on the (subject of home
rule, hut on the land question. It is
likely that Mr. Chamberlain will resign
during the present week. The situation
is critical. A cabinet meeting which is
to be hold to-day will probably decide
the question of who shall leave the ministry. Whatever happens, Mr. Gladstone is determined to submit his scheme
iu its entirety to parliament.
Ottawa, Out., Mar. 15.—On motion
to resume the debate on the resolution
censuring the government for the execution of Louis Rfel, in parliament, to-day,
a division was had and the government
triumphed by a majority of 44. This is
believed to indicate its strength on the
main qucstiou.
Sure Cube for Rheumatism, —If the
system is properly cleansed by some
medicine that acts upon the bowels ,
kidneys and skin, such as Burdock Blood
Bitters, and the sufferer will use Hagyard's ¥ellow Oil according to directions,
there are few cases of rheumatism, however bad, hut will yield promptly to the
treatment.
YESTERDAY'S DISPATCHES.
London, March 16.—The Earl of Chichester ia dead. Heavy snow storm prevailing throughout England.
London, March lfi.—Despite all stories to the contrary, it is learned to-day
authoritatively that both Chamberlain
and Trevcleyn have resigned. The pre
mier has, however, refused to accept
their resignations.
New York, March 10.—A committee
of the Oregon's passengers appointed at
yesterday's meeting to take steps to recover the value of their property, called
at thc Ciiuard Line olliee this morning
and left a statement of their grievances.
The Oregon lies in 120 feet of water, and
it is hardly thought probable that sin-
will be raised. Her cargo, engines, nntl
the valuable parts of the vessel, howevei,
will be brought to the surface.
A fact which even political economists
are apt to forget is tliat a manufacturer's
rate of profit is not the only essential
element to success; the aggregate profit
at the end of tlio year is of far greater
importaneo, and this iu most cases is
greater ont of a low rate of profit than
out of a high rate, because of thc increased business which the lower price
gives rise to. It was on this principle
that Messrs. Tuckett k Sou acted iu introducing their now famous "Myrtle
Navy" tobacco, and to this principle
they have ever since adhered. This is
one of the reasons why the people of
Canada are Binoking the best tobacco
which can be produced, at a cheaper
price than any other poople can buy a
similar article.
IiimjrlP) council.
Council met at tho usual plaw on the
ttth inst.; present, reeve ami full council.
A number of petitions for roads and

—was all broken down with dyspepsia,
liver complaint, catarrh and debility.
Three doctors abandoned hope for me,

rescue. It jb the best medicine 1 have
ever taken. I say this for thc benefit of

Rapid Work.—"For two years I was
troubled with dyspepsia—could neither

Farmerville. Burdock Blood Bitters
cures dyspepsia, liver uud kidney complaints, and all impurities of the system.

Hurrey, March 4, IW. «mh Echoes from Ottawa.
In the senate Mr. Bellruse, a conservative, made u strong speech touch-
inj't upon independent conservatives.
Ho suid his party had grown distrust
ful of Sir John's leadership, and hud
come to tho conclusion that he was not
worthy of confidence. Ho pointed to
Sir John Macdonald's persistent attacks upon tho rights of tho provinces,
hia disallowance of provincial acts, his
efforts to seize control of the licensing
power, aud othor acts, as proof of this.
He denied that Riel's execution was
the cuubo of tlio present agitation in
Quobec. It was simply tlio last act in
a systematic crusade against tlmt province, which had aroused the people to
a sense of their danger. Quebec had
been deceived, the pledges mado at
Confederation had beon broken, nud
tho constitutional rights of tho minorities trampled upon. Shrewd observers might have noticed that for years
there was unrest and uneasiness iu the
ranks of tho ministerialists from Quebec province. Party discipline and
the fear of the abuse of a servile press
had kept theso men within tlieir parly
linos, until at last tho government's
administration of the North-west affairs, culminating in war and bloodshed, had tilled their measure of
indignation to overflowing. The Quebec conservatives discovered that in
supporting Sir John Macdonald they
were strengthening the hands of one
of the worst enemies of the country,
and those who were not dependent
upon the government for favors resolved to cast olf the shackles. He
pointed out that the Tory majority
had voted down the resolution offered
by Mr. M. C. Cameron in 1884, proposing that the claims of tho Half-
breeds should he at once considered
Had that resolution been adopted tlie
rebellion and all its terrible conso-
iiueuces wonld have been avoided, hut
the members had been deceived by the
government. Ho denied that mercy
had been asked for Kiel because he
was a French Half-brord, but it was
considered that as the govornment
were partners iu the crime of provoking the rebellion, uf which Kiel wns
the head, thuy at least shmild have
■shown mercy to him, particularly after
the jury had recommended him to
mercy. Kiel should have had the benefit of any doubts that existed in his
case, but the government hnd from the
tirst shown a disposition to deal unjustly. He quoted from numerous
authv-rities showing that tho Indians
had been starved and robbed, and said
:'?.:.: the newspapers supporting the
guvernment bad submitted that out of
m million dollars voted for Indians
three-fourths had been stolen by government officials.
Mr. Mclnnes, of British Columbia
(Coruerviitive re/vetted that he could
not agree with the statement in the
speech from the throne that the country was prosperous. So far as British
Columbia waa concerned the commercial depression theru was greater than
at any time during the past twelve
years. So great was it that tlie councils of Victoria and Nanaimo had
taken measures to keep distressed
people from starving. There were
now eighteen or twenty thousand
Chinese in that province, and the government were to blame fur that. Had
they listened tn the representations of
British Columbia members and taken
mea.'ires years ago to check the influx
of Chinese, white men would riot have
been deterred from going to the Pacifio province as they were. But in this
matter the government had pursued
the same policy of delay and neglect
which had resulted so disastrously in
the North-West, Last year, after the
work on the Pacifio road waa finished,
and when no Chineso were coming
into the country, they had passed a
bill imposim* a Hue of fifty dollars a
head upon each Chinese person landing iu the Dominion, It was like
lucking tho stable door nfter the horse
had beeu stolen. The bill was no use
whatever, because British Columbia
was already overcrowded with Chinese,
und uo more weru coming. Tho haste
shown in the completion of the Canadian Pacitio Railway had induced contractors to utilize Chinese labor, and
encouraged these people tn tlock into
Canada. He bolioved thut had the
government acted properly toward the
North-west settlers thero would have
been no rebellion.
Senator Macdonald denied that there
was any depression in British Columbia.
Mr. Mclnnes' said his statements
wore corroborated by Mr. Gordon, a
conservative member of the house of
commons.—Glohe.

When wo first met him, we were
standing on Main street, Worcester, in
company with a new-made acquaintance* for wu had been in thu city only
n few hours. Uough came sauntering
up the street, and his peculiar appear-
anco arrested my attention. I inquired wh'- ho wm, and was iu the next
minute introduced, Hu was exceedingly ucll-dresBed and talked in
drawling tone, with an assumed cockney accent, as I afterward found, and
a humorous manner thnt quitu interested  me.    Ho appeared  us a bright*
careless follow, uml my companion told
1110 hu was just olf a bender. Ho wi
of spare, gonteel form, dressed in n
black suit, with a vury conspicuous
Byron collar, his hair black as jet,
nnd long, hanging to liis shoulders,
with his beaver hat cocked jauntily on
one side of his head, which negatived
the' deep sorrow thnt tlie profusion of
crape which encircled it wns intended
tu symht,\i/.<:. He had a languid man
nor, Bitllow countenance, rather low
' forehead, with not remarkable features,
except thnt hu could instantly change
them from fun to fury. He would
never have been punished for his
beauty, and his good humor saved lum
from being ugly,
So far as t knew him, ho always appeared well, barring tho straggling-
player air he had. He told me that
he hnd been with minstrel troupes,
nnd showed a great number of clippings from newspapers, Unit lauded
liim for public performances in vocal
and comical parte. He seemed to be
very fond of praise—Letter to Salem
Gazette. 	
It was a Chicago lawyer whu, in his
capacity as justice of the peace, wns
called upon'to marry a couple in haste.
Absent-mindedly, he began with the
groom: "Vou do solemnly swear tlmt
'■ you will faithfully perform all tho duties devolving upon you as husband of
this woman, during your torm of office,
and until your successor ehall be oho*
sen and qualified in your stead." Then
he remembered himself end began
again, after the manner appropriate to
thB-occttion.—Itotoell Citizen.

Mormon Proselyting.
Atlanta, Gu,, March 2.—The Constitution publishes to-day tho investigation bf n representative in North
Alabama iu regard to the work of the
Mormons in that section. Several
elders have been seen busily engaged
in the work fur the past six months
and have mado mnny converts among
the country people. The farmers in
Ohocktho and Shinbone Valleys, iu
Clay county, have notified them they
must leave and threaten to uso force.
Tho Elders refuse to go, saying they
are engaged iu legitimate work and
will be protected by the government.
A number of women and some men
have gone to Utah.
New Youk, March 2.--An Alabama
special says: Olay county is the'scene
of great Mormon triumphs of lato.
Mr. Landers, a preacher of Oak ltidge
Church, which he used as a school
during the woek, entertained a Mormon elder two years ago and allowed
him to preach ou Sunday. The result
was tho conversion of Lander's wife
and son to Mormonism, to the chagrin
of tbe deluded father, who left tlie
county. Later, the Myrnion Elders,
who bad increased iu -numbers, wero
requested to leave, but declined, de-
fiantly saying they were ready to spill
their blood. They havo now converted
about the entire population of Shin-
bone Valley and warn the people not
in sympathy with them to leave in
thirty days. Several such warnings
are now cut. The Gentiles retaliated
one nigh: last week, by gathering
around  the house of Elder Harrison
id notifying him that he should not
continue his work. The next day the
Elder's son bought a supply uf ammunition and Harrison had stuck up on
the trees this notice: "Come to our
house another night, and Homo of you
will eat breakfast in hell next morning." Deserted homes, separated families and friends changed to biiter enemies aro somo of thu results already
accomplished by Mormonism in Alabama.
Not a cancer but a Lizard.
ClbvblaM), Ohio, Feb. 14.—Mrs,
J. C. Williaton, the wifo of a contractor aud builder of this city, has
just returned from an extended trip
after a most remarkable experience.
Mra. Williaton is not yet thirty, but
her hair is almost whito and her faco
bears the signs of a life of suffering.
She has been the victim for years, at
varying hours of night and day, of
pains like the cutting of a knife, and
physicians supposed ber to bo suffering
from cancer of the stomach. Eminent
physicians failed to exactly locate the
trouble or afford the lady relief. Sho
spent months in travel and largo
amounts of money endeavoring to Iind
effective treatment fur hor malady, but
most of tbe physicians whom she consulted said that her disease was cancer
of thc stomach nnd that death would
ultimately result.
Last October she went to San Francisco, stopping and treating, while en
route, at the soda springs of Idaho,
but in vain. Later she tried the
waters of Calistoga Springs and the
baths of Passo del Roblea without
effect. San Francisco's best physicians
could allbrd no relief, and Bhe started
for Sonora, Mexico, intending to visit
some celebrated springs noar Nogolcs.
She was taken seriously ill at Tuscon,
A.T. One day during her illness a
I'apago Indian, of local notoriety as a
"medicine man,11 visited Tuscon from
St. Xavier's Mission. He was taken
to Mrs. Williston'a rooms and asked if
he could tell her ailment. Ho looked
at her, had her describe tbe pains and
their location, and then with the exclamation, "Me sabe heap bad spirit,'
ho rushed out and toward the mission
Iu a few hours ho returned with herbs
and a basket of mescal, a rout used by
the Indians fur food.
He motioned tu Mrs. Williston to
swallow the herbs, They mado her
deathly sick, so much so that she
almost died from fright, thinking she
had been poisoned. The result, after
a few hours, was the emission of a dead
lizard that was fully four inches in
length. It was apparently of a species
common to the East, but how it hnd
managed to live for so many years was
tho mystery. MrB. Williston says that
but ono explanation occurs to her,
which is that when a child and living
ut Phillipsbtirg, N.J., she und her
brother were accustomed tu drink from
ii little brook that ran near the house.
They would scoop tho water up with
their hands, nnd she thinks thnt possibly in this way slie swallowed tho
embryo lizard. Mrs. Williston's recovery has boen rapid, and she is now
fairly on the way to a complete restoration tu health. Though the taking uf
living objects into tho system is not
rare, medical men say that this is one
of the most remarkablo cases on
record.—.ft'. V. Times,
