North Arm, April Dili, 1888.      rlwapmic
.\e«- York I'ourls and (be Press.
Joseph Howord, the New York
correspondent of America, the new
Chicago paper, graphically describes
some things which are not altogether
creditable to the IT. 8. metropolis.
He says:   "Absolutely, license has
no bounds.   Take our courts of justice for example.   There was a time
when judges sat supreme, and juries
were considered final arbiters oil fact.
All this is ehanged.   Let me give
you a conspicuous illustration—(hit
of Jacob Sharp.     Who  is  Jacob
Sharp 1   An old man who lived here
half a century, all of which time he
has devoted to tho building of street
railways, with all that that implies.
That he has bribed legislators in Albany, and bribed aldermen in  New
York, I believe.   That  any  groat
civic grant was ever made  by   iin-
bribed aldermen or unbought legislators, I don't believe.   A few yean
ago, when the Tweed ring dominated
not only the city but the state, and
bade fair, by the elevation of  John
T. Hoffman to the  presidency,  to
dominate also the nation, bare-faced
purchase of votes in Albany was as
common as the bare-faced purchase
of votes at the polls of Rhode Island,
when Sprague nnd Paddleford had
their famous   contest   in    1860.
Sharp followed tbe good old custom.
He   was after a point.   His point
was to get charters and  privileges,
at whatever cost, knowing very well
thnt vast financial profit would come
to him and his.   For more  than a
quarter of a century there had been
a struggle to gain possession of the
amplitudes of Broadway for a street
railway.   Sharp secured  it.   This
roused the indignation of his opponents and rivals; charges and counter
oharges were  made,   investigations
followed, and indictment  was-the
result.     Under ordinary "eirii«m-v
stances, it would have been the fair
thing to bring Mr. Sharp into oourt,
confront him   with   tho  evidence,
convict him, if possible, and punish
him for proven crime.    Instead of
which 1   Instead of which the newspapers constituted  themselves prosecuting attorney, judgo nnd jury.
Quick-witted reporters—and there
is nothing quicker-witted on the face
of the globe than a quick-witted reporter—wero sent   with  artists to
the court room.   They treated the
court   with  great   respect;.,.they
praised and puffed and  beslobbered
tho prosecuting officers with  extravagant laudation; they turned their
powers of ridicule, their pencils of
contempt, upon the accused and his
lawyers; they caricatured their personal appearance; they exaggerated
every movement;  they   ohronioled
every infelioity; thoy did everything
that human   ingenuity, stimulated
by enterprise and urged by malice,
could devise, to force a  conviction.
The conviction followed and a timorous appellate court confirmed  it,
but the court of appeals, the tribunal of final resort, turned it over with
eontempt, administered deserved rebuke  to  the judge who tried the
case, and decided in favor of the accused.   Now he is up again.    And
already the same tactics are begun.
That Sharp is seriously  ill  in  his
home on Wost Twenty-third street,
his neighbors very well know.   The
nowspapers say ho is not ill.   They
accuse him, day in and day out,  of
shamming.   They are doing all  in
their power to prejudice again  the
community, so that outside  of  the
idiot asylum it will be a mental impossibility to secure a jury.   Under
these  circumstances,   Sharp   very
naturally asks a change  of   venue.
Will it be granted?   I think if the
court alone were to decide the question, it would be granted,   but  the
nowspapers hare already decided
against the application, and as  our
judges, in nil theso great eases, are
absolutely the creatures of the press,
I doubt very much if Sharp is  permitted to go to any other part of the
state, or to find a jury unprejudiced,
aud my judgment is, that at any expense of $100,000, more or less, he
will again be convicted, his case will
again be   appealed   and  approved,
and again be carried to the tribunal
of final resort, and again   be  contemptuously discharged.   Men  ore
sent to prison every day, who should
not go there.   Men walk the streets
all tho time, who  deserve  punishment.   If we take the judgment of
Morgan Dix.rcctorof Trinity parish,
sooiety is in a condition of immoral
ferment.   The records  show  that
personal purity,   physical  decency,
reputable conditions of molality, are
impossible  in   our tenement-house
lifo.   From 12,000 to 15,000 liquor
saloons, licensed or unlicensed, ore
in profitable progress; houses of  infamy are numerous; nnd   gambling,
which, publicly, no longer exists, is
carried on in high feather in  places
that are accessible to all who oaro
lo visit tliem."

Gladstone's attack on the budoist.
London, April 25.—Mr. Gladstone's
attack upon the budget last night, as
he himself intimated, was not for the
purpose of railing questions of personal acts on the part of certain unionist
leaders as has been alleged, bat was
made solely with the object of giving
the liberal party a distinct issue apart
from the Irish question. Reliable information from the liberal camp is to
the effect that it was not hoped even
to diminish the tory strength in the
house by the delivery of a speech
which was intended to influence the
constituencies where the exposure of
the fallacies of inadequate land taxation would give the masses a rallying
cry against the classes, hut rather to
put the unionists squarely upon record
as taking the aide of settled liberalism
in ultra toryism. The result has been
wholly satisfactory, and not in the
least disappointing. Nobody in the
councils of the liberal party has believed during the last year that the
leading spirits of the unionist faction
were anything but tcries, though they
have professed to accept many liberal
principles, except that of home rule for
Ireland, and nobody now believes they
have been anything else since the day
they turned their backs upon the ex-
premier upon the question of Irish
representation in the Westminster
parliament.
GRAND   TKONK KAIIWAY.
London, April 25.—At the Grand
Trunk Railway Company's meeting today, Sir Henry Tyler said that the**
met as a new board, new shareholders,
a new company, making a freah start
from January 1st. It had not been a
start such as might have been wished,
but there was no occasion for despondency. The deficient harvest in Ontario, the failure of Ontario banks, had
adversely affected the company, though
the traffic over the great lakes happily
continued to increase, especially as regards the dressed meat traffic The
time was not far distant when a solution would be reached by a conversion
of the various securities of the company, making a saving in interest
which would prevent the company
from feeling tho expense consequent
upon doubling the line between Montreal snd Toronto. The report waa
adopted. Grand Trunk securities are
dopreased, consequent upon the report
of the meeting.
IXHRIAI PABUAMBNT,
. London, April 24.—In the house of
commons this evening Mr. Justin McCarthy moved the adjournment of
business in order to oall attention to a
departure in the usual practice of the
Irish county courts in increasing sentences upon appeal. In a lengthy
speech Mr. McCarthy condemned the
practice. Mr. Hugh Holmes, a former
attorney-general for Ireland, defended
the action ot the judges. He said that
it waa not really an appeal but a rehearing of the caaes, -and it wu the
judges duty to pronounce whatever
judgment they considered the evidence
warranted. Mr. Shaw-Lofevre spoke
condemning the practice. He was followed by Sir William Harcourt, who
uid these were unused powers
within the law that were rusty weapons of a brutal character. The employment of brutal and ferocious powers, whether in the law or not, against
that people wu unconstitutional. It
wu euy to conceive how convenient it
wu for the government to make the
people afraid of appealing. What wu
easier than to introduce a now feature
Into criminal procedure in order to deter people from appealing by fear of
having their sentences increased.
Hereafter Irishmen could not, and
ought not, to have confidence in the
administration of a law because it wu
executed in u manner which wu ro-
pugnuut to all fair-minded Englishmen. Mr. Balfour replied to tho
charges. Ho said Sir William Harcourt insinuated that the judges in
Ireland dorired their inspiration from
Dublin Castle. This, ho aaid, waa a
foul libel upon tho honor ■ and independence of a body which completely
fulfilled its duties. The motion to adjourn was rejected by 219 to 105.

BE1.VII1KHE, Knns., April 26.—A
rancher, who has just arrived from the
Indian Territory, confirms the reports
of the murder of Dr. W. E. Ashley
and Eugene Gross, of this place, both
well and favorably known. . They
hired a team and buggy to go to the
Indian nation on a hunting and prospecting tour. When a few miles below Englowood, in the Indian Territory, they wero met by vigilantos, who
called Grou from (he camp and without warning or ceremony hanged him
to a rail crossed on sapplinga. Ashley
drew his Winchester and opened fire;
they murdered him at once, 16 balls
pierced his body.

Britain's forces inadequate.
London, April 20.—Gen. Wolsley,
in a speech lut night, asserted that '
Ihe military and naval forces of England are inadequate, and need to be
strengthened at once. The conservative St, James Gazette, in commenting
upon thia speech, makes a direct attack upon the ministry for ita neglect
of proper military preparation. -England is now open to invuion from any
one of the continental powers. It aaya
that the vessels of tbe navy have no
proper guns, and none are ready.
They have no stores of gunpowder
and no system of food supply exoept
from foreign sources.
PARNEU. ON THE NEXT ELECTION.
London, April 20.—Pamell said today: "From the indications afforded
at the late elections, it ia evident that
at the next general election thou
electors who abstained from voting ln
1880, and thereby returned a tory ministry with one hundred majority, will
in the main vote to restore Gladstone
to power, with about a similar majority. The final result of tbe restoration
to Ireland of a parliament is assured beyond a doubt. For an event of suoh
magnitude, which np to 1880 wu not
expected, we can afford to have a little
patience. To the American people
especially, without whose aid wa oould
not have made thia enormous advance,
and who, looking from a distance, nay
regard our progress u slow. I would
uy all we bave to do is to uu the interval to consolidate and secure the
ground for the next step.

Mr. Aclnni lirown, M. P. P. for
Hamilton, Onfc, lias asked for the
appointment of u committei* to enquire into thn fraudulent [mictions
which are so commonly perpetrated
npon farmers, and suggest some
measure of protection. It is won-
tlerful how many of the farmer per*
mit.themselves to be imposed on by
designing sharpers. They put their
hames to papers which purport to
mrctirn for tliirm somo unusual itdvon-
tnge, without exercising ordinary
roiiiinon snnst*. Home of these papers have a most inocent look, but
when thoy como back at maturity
thoy nro very formidable, and carry
dismay and ruin to tho luckless
farmer.. If any device can protect
these people, Mr. Brown's proposal
will ontitlo him to the gratitude of
all classes.
Sir Donald Smith and Sir George
Stephen have generously proposed
to endow a college at Montreal for
the higher education of women, and
it is proposed to establish   branches
of this college in the northwest and
British Columbia.     A bill for the
purpose of carrying this philanthropic scheme into effect is  now before
the   Canadian    parliament.     The
press of Victoria has already begun
an agitation with a view to  having
the branch institution located   in
that city.     While we are not disposed to deny to Victoria anything
that naturally belongs to it, we may
bo permitted seriously to question
whether the interests of education
would be best served by yielding to
the suggestions of the papers  referred to.     It moy be laid down as a
general principle that all provincial
institutions should be located at the
most central point   where the conditions favorable to their usefulness
may be found. Recognizing the correctness of that principle, the principal federal and provincial establishments for this  provinco  have
very properly been placed at Westminster.     Wo have here the provincial penitentiary and the provincial lunatic asylum, and here also
are located the  central  telegraph
office and the central prison for the
mainland.    Victoria is, geographically, the centre for nothing, because
it stands awny on the extreme southern limit of Vancouver Island.   Its
geographical  position gives it possession of splendid facilities for shipping, and that is about all that can
be said for it.   The central cities of
the provinco ore Westminster and
Vancouver, with a decided advantage on the pnrt of the former inasmuch as it is as easily reached from
any other part of the province, and
much more easily reached from somo
of the most important settlements.
Vancouver Island may *1*e said to
contain about one-third of tho white
population of the province, and of
this third Victoria claims about one
half.   Anothbf —iti of our population, may be found in the district of
Westminster; nnd  the  remaining
third is scattered over the rest of the
mainland.   It cannot be. said, therefore, that Victoria is a provincial
centre whether considered geographically or with respect to population.
Westminster is easily reached from
any part of Vancouver Island.  The
distance from Victoria is about 75
miles, and from Nanaimo about  40
or 50.   These are the only places of
commercial importance on the island,
nnd we are connected with both of
them by direct and regular steam
communication.   The ouly means of
communication between the interior
and the cities of the  mainland are
by railway, by river,   and  by   the
trunk toad.     By railway tho  dis
tance {rom any point in the interior
to Westminster is 8 J miles less than
to Vnncouver, and the railway  service to both places is exactly the same.
If the river is used, wo are right on
the river, and this  is headquarters
for all river trade. If the trunk road
is made use of, this is the terminus
of it.     This is also the objective
point of nearly all   roads  on  the
south.side of the river, where tho
largest ant] richest agricultural settlements chiefly lio.     It will be admitted by all, we think, that institutions for higher education ought to
be located in some city. Tho advantages of a oity location will be apparent, and need not be mentioned.
It will also be  admitted  that   the
oity in which they are located should
boaBccntralas possible,   with  respect especially to tho population of
the country, nnd that iB should bo
euy of access.     We have shown
that in all respects the city of Westminster meets the conditions in such
a way as no other city in the province can meet them. It is, besides,
a city with an excellent reputation ;
having* beautiful site, easy of drainage and healthy; well supplied with
churches and other agencies of moral influenco; and has fewer liquor li
censes in proportion to its population
than nny other city in the province.
In view of these facts we respectfully wbmit that the city of West-
minster, the royal city, is tho place
when the proponed oollego  for the
higher education of women ought to
be located, if iti founders intend it
to be an institution for  the benefit
of the provinoe at large.

night diaeoised the subject, "Whether
the American people were justified, or
not'in rebelling against the mother
country." The debate waa very animated it times, nnd good points wero
mode on both sides. Tho revolt of Urn
colonios was finally sustained by a vote
of 11 to 10. The people of the United
States can now rest perfectly easy, as
thero cannot he the slightest doubt of
the justness of their cause.

Uno uf tho deck hands of tho S. K.
Sardonyx, aftor casting off tho lines us
tho vossels was leaving Iho C. P N.
wharf, attempted to jump aboard, but
missed his hold aud fell into tho wator.
On rising to tho surface ho grasped
hold of a pile aud clung to it until an
Indian, who saw the accident, came
along in a canoe and picked him up.
Beyond a ducking and a sevore chill,
the man was none the worse for hia

An Interesting Spectacle,
In the Westminster items which appear iu the Vanoouver News to-day we
find the following very interesting nnd
remarkable statement: " Tlm old plan
of catching oolachans, millions of
which aro now running in tho river
wito a long pole to which is attached
20 or thirty sharp nails in a row, haa
been for tho greater part dono away
with." The spectacle of these nico
littlo fish swarming up the rivor by
millions, each carrying a long polo full
of sharp nails, must be vory novel indeed ! Not long ago a paragraph in
tho samo paper informed us that a
scow had gone up the river with tho
steamer Adelaide in tow !
An Exciting Hour.
There was quite a flurry of excitement among tho city sages this morning when tho bow of a steamship was
seen rounding tho point of Atmacis
Island, and headed directly for this
city, ln a few minutes overy member
of tho leather parliament, both government and opposition, together with
many more illustrious cranks, wero
congregated under the awning of
Mr. Chas. McDonough's Btore, and
soon conjectures as to who the stranger
might be, were flying thick and fast on
all sides. Someone suggested it wns a
Russian man o' war como to shell the
city. A few thought this was very
probable and suggested that the battery should at once ba ordered out and
open fire on her. Wiser councils prevailed, however, and it was decided
that the stranger bo allowed to dock
and then, with the assistance of the
rifle company, she could easily bo
captured by a coup de main. Anothor
proposition wns that the general manager ot the telephone company should rig
out one of the instruments as a torpedo,
and blow the vessel into smithereens
smaller than oolachans. It was also
decided that if tho schemo proved successful a grant of 5,000 ncres of land,
in the neighborhood ot Harrison lake,
should be awarded the manager as a
tribute to his mighty genius. This
worthy idea was about to be put into
execution when Dutch Bill remarked
that the explosion of dynamite under
the surface would totally destroy the
oolachan erop for the season. A cry
of horror went up at this intelligence
and the wretched proposer of the
scheme narrowly escaped being lynched
to Oapt. Peele's flag staff. This, in
fact, would have boon carried into effect, but it was feared tho people might
think the corpse was a weather signal
hung up by the station *-lliccr as an indication of an impentiing hurricane.
While all this was going on tho strange
vessol was gradually drawing nearer,
and yet uu thing had been done to keep
off the expected calamity. So much
time had beon loat in schemes aud surmises that there wus no chance left to
adopt a lino of defonce,so it was agreed
that a deputation of thu most intelligent members should go aboard aud
make the best terms possible, even if
it was necessary to hand over the Salvation army atid'tho remainder of thn
city luts. The crowd marched down
in an irregular budy tu tho O. P. N.
Co.'s wharf, for which point the steamship was evidently headed, aud thero
patiently awaited hor coining. A few
minutes more and the vessel, which
proved to be the Sardonyx, was alongside with Capt. Irving bowing and
smiling to the host of friends he discovered among the congregation on tho
wharf. The deputation decamped in
a body, not even waiting to akako
hands with tlie captain, so anxious
were they to open the house and discuss tho arrival in committee of the
whole.
Provincial LculHltilurr,
Victoria, April 25.—The report of
the committee on title to certain hind**
iu tho vicinity of Coal Harbor claimed
by the Rev. Mr. Ditchman, and tho
repurt of the committee recommending
tho government to consider the advisability of issuing a erown grant of certain lands to Mr. Gold, was adopted.
Mr. Bole pointed out the uselessness
of legislative committees which took
up the timo of tho session and could
after all ouly recommend a course tu
the government which tho latter wero
not compelled to carry out, The bill
granting 805,000 in aid of quartz mining development by erecting teat mills,
passed its second reading. The Westminster incorporation bill was read a
third time. On motion lo adopt the
report on tho sohool bill, Mr. Beaven
moved an amendment providing that
the election of school trustees take
place on the same day as the municipal
elections. These amendments woro
voted down after considerable discussion. Hon. Mr. Robson proposed a
clause to the effect that auy toucher
dismissed from any sohool for gross
misconduct should have powor to ap*
peal from the decision of the school
trustees to the superintendent of education, who might reinstate him, Mr.
Bole suggested that the appeal should
be made directly to the lieutenant-
governor in council. It wns finally decided that the appeal should be mado
to the county court judge, but the
teacher could uot be reinstated without the consent of the trustees. The
supplementary estimates of the expenditure for the fiscal year ending June,
1889, wore submitted by the finance
minister. The total proposed expenditure is $110,371. Among the items
are a salary fur tho principle of tho
high school at Vancouver, $1,200; assistant to the government agent nt
Westminster, §000; monitor for hoys'
school at Westminster, -$275 ; ditto,
Vancouver, $250; ditto, Delta, $75 ;
Knglish teachers, ?350; tho corporation
of the city of Vancouver re expenses
incurred in 1887 under tho preservation of tho peace act, $3,033.

Chicago, April 24.—Capt. William
P. Spaulding, of Sault Ste. Marie, is
in the city. He has just returned from
the mining country north of Lake Superior. To a reporter ho said that tho
finds of precious metals made in tho
interior recently have boon so numerous
and rich that there will probably be a
rush of people into the country as soon
as tho season opens. "I would be
afraid to tell you tho value of Borne of
the pieces of silver that I have stson
takon out," said he, "because you
could hardly believe me. The silver is
fouud almost pure. Muoh of tho ore
averages $2,800 a ton, and occasionally
the preciaus metal is found in i. mass
almost pure. The miners are about
150 miles from the lake. The recent
strike was ut the Wilde mine at Rabbit
mountain. The product of this mine
so far exceeded the most sanguine expectations. Captain Spaulding is
very enthusiastic over the new discov-
