Onrrent; Events and Opinions.
Tlio intelligent part of Portland
has felt called upon in self-defence to
express itself on the fishery question and its utterance is a practical
repudiation of the varporihg of the
sea-kings who have hitherto had all
the talk to themselves. Tlie merchants, when they got together,
ordered the treaty of 1818 to be
read before them, and finding therein no excuse for protest against
Canada's action, passed a most
friendly and conciliatory resolution,
ThiB, we conceive, will be the common nttitude on the question, of
intelligent peoplo throughout the
United States after they havo looked
into the question.—Montreal Wit-
M. Do Lesseps is successful as
usual. In spite of the very unfavorable report of the French engineers
which, by the way, agreed with
that of the American engineers,
and was to the effect that tho com
pletion of the canal wns not within Bight and would cost far more
than the estimates, the French government has agreed to guarantee
a loon of a hundred and twenty
million dollars under the condition
that M. De Lesscps will make it
cleur that the work can be completed for that amount. To an optimist like M, De Lesseps dealing
with an optimistic people that condition is an easy one,—--Montreal

NUMBER 51
of prosperity both to Ireland and
England. The experience of nearly
every nation is in favor ot the proposition that in this contest the
Gladstonites are the unionists white
the Conservatives and the Chamberlain Radicals are the dfeunionists.
Looking at the figures of 'the last
election it seems hardly possible that
Mr. Gladstone should retain more
than three-fourths of the Liberal
seats in the present Parliament. But
if ho does this, and the strength of
the Parnellites is not decreased, he
will have a small majority in the uow
Parliament. But if the Gladstonites
and the Parnellites by combination
in both England and Ireland can
control 350 seats, giving tb the disaffected Liberals thirty-one seats
and to the Conservatives metr' present strength in Parliament, then Ireland will ha-vp home-rule. If Mr.
Gladstone loses one-fourth of his
present strength the Liberal party
in the next Parliament will, curiously enough, bo about equal to the
present Conservative party, while
the disaffected or anti-home-rule
liberals will be about as strong as
the Parnellites, Such a Parliament
would not be much better than the
present one.—Chicago Inter-Ocean,

The bed of the ocean is to an
enormous extent covered with lava
and pumico stone. Still moro remarkable is it to find tlie floor of
the ocean covered in many parts
with the dust of the meteorites.
These aro like miniature comets,
and are for the most part broken
into innumerable fragments. Wo
are all familiar witli the heavenly
visitants as shooting stars, but it
has been only lately discovered that
this cosmic dust forms layers at the
bottom of tho deepest seas. Between Honolulu And Tahiti, at the
depth of 2,350 fathoms, over two
miles nnd a half, a vast layer of
this material exists. Falling upon
lnnd this impalpable dust is undis-
tinguishahle- but accumulating for
centuries in the sea depths it forms
a wondrous story of continuous
bombardment of this planet by com-
etary bodies.—The Week.
Americans will take moro interest
in tho coming Parliamentary campaign in Great Britain than they have
ever taken in any other because of
the issue of home rule for Ireland.
The interest in this caso is not confined to those who sympathize with
the Irish people but to'nll who believe in the principles of representative government. Mr. Gladstone's
fdatform is that if Ireland is given a
ocal government or parliament authorized to conduct or manage local
affairs that the Irish people who
have been for many years openly
hostile to England will take the first
step toward real union, He contends that England having tried
every possible plan under the old system of compelling the Irish people to
do what England demanded, and
having failed in every project, the
timo has como to try an experiment
in the other direction. Irish leaders
like Mr. Parnell, Justin McCarthy,
Mr. Sexton, and others claim for
Ireland such measures of homo rule
as is given to every State iu the
American Union, or if they do not
nil agree on this point those who dissent claim for Ireland the same sort
of local government that is given to
Canada or to other British states.
They join Mr. Gladstone in thn belief that a concession of this kind
will produce n stronger feeling of
union in Ireland than any coercion
policy could. Mr. Chamberlain, tho
leader of anti-homo-rule Liberals,
concedes tho principle of home rule,
but opposes the plan favored by Mr.
Gladstone. Without definiteunss he
intimates that not only Ireland hut
England and Scotland should have
some form of local government outside of nnd in a measure independent of the Imperial Parliament. Mr.
Gladstone ih his manifesto expresses
a willingness to consider propositions looking to local parliaments in
England and Scotland. The question really beforo the British constituencies is, shall Ireland have a system of home rule or not. If Gladstone is defeated Ireland will not secure, for years to come, a local parliament. The country will be subjected to persecution and will havo
to go over again and again the miserable experience of the last forty
years. If Mr. Gladstone is not de
tented, and if it appears that tho
firogressivo constituencies of Eng-
and will support home-rule measures, then there may be a peaceful n.-vo-
Jution so as to form of goverumrnt
in Ireland bringing a greater degree
Recent Exploration and Scientific Investigation.
The Director of tho Geological Survey of Ireland, Profo8BorHull,F.R.S.,
delivered iho annual nddress of the
Victoria (Philosophical) Institute in
London, ou tho 28th of May, on which
occasion tho Institute's new president,
Professor Stokes, president of the
Royal Society, took the chair. The
report was read by Captain F. Potrie,
thu honorary secretary, and showed
that the Institute's home, colonial, and
foreign members were upwards of
eleven hundred, including many whu
joined from a desire tuavail themselves
of tho Institute's privileges. An in-
cvensing number of leading scientific
men uow contributed papers and aided
iu the work of bringing about a truer
appreciation of the result of scientific
inquiiyL especially in casos where
KcientnP; discovery was alleged by the
opponents of religious beliefs to be
subversive thereof. The author of the
address then gavo an account of the
work, discoveries, and general results
of tho recent geological and geographical expedition to Egypt, Arabia, nnd
Western Palestine, of which he liad
charge. Sketching the course taken
by him (whioh tn a considerable extent
took the route ascribed to the Israelites),
he gave an account of the physical features of the country, evidences of old
aea mm-gins 200 feut abovo thu present
sea margins, and showed tbat at one
time an arm of the Mediterranean had
occupied tho valley of the Nile as far
us the First Cataract, at which time
Africa was an island (an opinion also
arrived at by another of the Institute's
members, Sir \V. Dawson), and that,
at the time of tho exodus, the Red Sea
ran up into the Bitter Lakes, ahd must
have formed a barrier to the traveller'i
progress at that period, Be then alluded to the great changes of elevation
in the land eastward of these lakes,
mentioning that the waters of the Jordan valley once stood 1,202 feet above
their present height. The great physical changes which had taken place in
geological timo were evidenced by the
fact that whilst the rocks in Western
Palestine were generally limestone,
(hose of the mountains of Sinai
were amongst the most anciuut
iu the world. The various geological
and ideographical features of the country wore so described as to make the
address a condensed report of all that
is now known of them in Egypt, Palestine, and Arabia Petratua. Sir Henry Barkly.G. C. M. G., F. R. S,.
moved a voto of thanks to Professor
Hull, and to those who had contributed to the work of the Institute
during the year, which included Assy-
riological investigations hy Professor
Sayce, Mr, Boscawen, and others; M.
Maspero'a and Oapt. Condor's Egyptian papers; Professor Porter's eastern researches; alao a review of the
question of evolution by Professor
Virchow, and tho results of investigations in rogurd tu the subject of the
origin of man, as to which it had beon
shown by Sir William Dawson, that
geoloiry divided , the chronology of
animal lifo into four "great periods":
in tho lirst—or Eozoic—in the Geological as in tho Bible records, wero found
the great icptilos; and the last, or
Tertiary, was again subdivided into
live "periods," and it waB only in the
Inst of theso, tho "modern" period,
that thn evidences of man's presence
had been found. Again, as regards
Ina ape descent, tho formation nnd
proportions of tho skull aud bones uf
the ape considered most like man were
found to be su di Hermit from those of
man as to placo insuperable difficulties in thu way of the way of the
theory. In tho gorilla, the high crest
on tho skull, which was also found in
the hyena, was absent in mail. Also,
among other points, if the capacity of
the brain of tho anthropoid ape wero
taken at ten, that of man, oven in his
savage statu wus twenty-six, or nearly
thrice ns much, n very important fact
wheu, as it was known, any appreciable diminution in the brain uf man
was at once accompanied by idiocy,
As regards the transmutability of apo-
ciub, Barrande'a arguments against the
theory, founded on tho results of a
life of research among the fossil strata,
had not yot beeu overthrown; and
modern research clearly pointed tu the
fact that ono grent bar to the trans-
mutability of speoies lay in the rotincd
and minute differences iu the molecular arrangements iu   their u-gans.
Tho proceedings wore concluded by
a vote of thanks to Professor Stokes,
under whose presidency it was remarked that the work of the Institute
would bo carried out with the increased
help and guidnnce of men of the highest sclontitio attainment*-, and iu a
maimer to tond to advance Truth. A
conversazione waa then held in the

The election of Hon. Mr. Smithe
unci his colleague, Mr. Croft, by ac
clamation for tho district of Cowichan will not add to tho enthusiasm
of those persons who have boon so
confidently predicting tlie annihilation of the government. Cowiohun
is the island constituency wliich obtained an additional representative
under a recent act, and it returns a
government supporter us colleague
to the premier, thus bringing an additional government vote to the
house.
We hope no one will be curried
away by tho opposition toutcrs who
so confidently assert that tho government is going to be defeated.
Thero is no ground for any such assertion. In the last parliament the
government had a majority of 18 to
6 without tho speaker, and there is
no probability at all of that very
large majority being reversed, it
is important that the city and dis
trict of New Westminster should
send four men who will work in accord, as far as consistent, with the
government. The interests of this
city and district are identical, nnd
this fact should be kept in view in
choosinga-epresentatives.
The Opposition Pool.
It appears that a pot was made,
or attempted to be made, by some
of tho opposition candidates nud
their friends on Thursday so ns to
secure the retirement of all but tlirec
of the political aspirants. In a lotter from Mr. Kennedy in another
column it is stated that this little
piece ef strut^j was.prearranged
long ago, and that Messrs; Dawson
and Innes were not sihflerfe'n their
candidature at all. However tbis
may be, the pot seems to have boiled
over. There were originally 8 opposition candidates, namely, Messrs.
McGillivray, Orr, Ladner, Dawson,
Innes, Kennedy, Agussiz, and
Isaacs. Messrs. Kennedy und Agussiz were urged to go into the pot,
but refused because thoy snspected
treachery. The others seem to havo
consented, each receiving tho positive assurance that he Would certainly be selected as one of the can-
-didetes. Tlie three sSecJsl were
Messrs. McGillivray, Orr and Ladner. Forthwith Mr. Isaacs began
to kick, and he declares he will not
stand by the pot. He is now holding meetings and canvassing for
himself through tho district. There
are, therefore, six opposition candidates in the field : Messrs. Isaacs,
Kennedy, Agassiz, Orr, Luduer, and
MoGillivray. Mr. Kennedy denounces the pool arrangement as a
piece of political trickery. Abstractly considered we cannot discover any objectionable feature in
it; but as Mr. Kennedy is one of
them we presume he is able to speak
from personal knowledge, hnving
had opportunities of catching
glimpses bohind the scenes. Mr.
Kennedy scorns trickery, but when
he associated himself with a party
which deals in that sort of thing he
ought to have counted the cost. He
knows well enough that the orgaus
of the opposition party, of which
the one in this city is a notable example, perpetually distort the truth
and employ tnotics which would be
scorned by any right-minded person;
and the party men are not always
better than their organs. Mr. Isaac
having kicked the pot, and Dr.
Kent (government) having withdrawn from the contest, the ticket
stands us follows: for the government, Messrs. Kobson, Wells, and
Kirklalid ; opposition, Messrs. McGillivray, Orr, Ladner, Agussiz;
Kennedy, und Isaacs. Out of this
number there are three to bo elect
ed, and wo believe the district will
he acting in its own interest if it
elects the three lirst named.
Brlblnsr thc Kleclors.
for suspecting impi-opei- influences.
But this he has very distinctly not
done. On the fourth page of this
paper will be found a report of tlie
meetings held at Surrey ami Langley, and from that report it will he
seen that tlie moneys were not allotted by tho provincial secretary at all,
but by tho free vote of tlie settlers
present, The plan adopted was a
very simple one, and perfectly legitimate. The peoplo themselves were
asked to declare by resolution wliere,
In their opinion, tlie money ought
to be spent, naming the dift'erent
objects in the ordor of their importance. The decisions arrived at will,
we presume, be submitted to the
cabinet for approval, and the list
will thon be filled in order until the
appropriation has been exhausted.
Wc cannot see how, under such an
arrange ment, there is room for any
thing in tho nature of bribery on
tho purt of the provincial secretary.
But, it is asked, why did uot tii
provincial secretary arrange the
road work before of after the elections. The reason why it was not
done before is given by the provin
cial secretary himself. For a number of weeks the deputy-provincial
secretary has beon laid up and un
able to attend to the duties of his
oilice. These duties devolved upon
the provincial secretary, and prevented him from visiting the district sooner. And every one knows
it is of great importance tliat no unnecessary delay should occur in completing arrangements for the commencing of road work, especially in
this district. If the provincial secretary had delayed his visit until
fter the elections, it woultl have
been near the end of July before
anything could bo done, road work
would have been thrown into the
rainy season, and tho public interest
would have sufiered. Under tliese
circumstances, wliich are quite w
known to the electors, the opposition
cannot successfully establish a case
egainst the course pursued hy the
provincial secretary.
Some persona who pretend to con
ami themselves'muoh for the government's; reputation* but are in faot
its worst anemic*, have been making
a great outcry against the manner
of distributing the -appropriations
adopted by the provincial secretary.
Because that gentleman has been
allotting the- appropriations at the
same time that ho is addressing the
electors on political ejuestions, they
say he is bribing the settlements.
If the provincial secretary oil his
own motion distributed these ap-
pK>pwations wherever lie chose,
thi-rewnfcld be lit least some ground| misleading.

Provincial Finances.
It has been stated that the present government is running the country into hopelesB financial embarrassment, and the statement is being
industriously used by the opposition
party as an election cry. In tv very
able speech delivered by the provin
cial treasurer at Victoria a few days
ago, tlie financiul status of the province was referred to in tho follow
ing language: "On the financial
question lie said he had published
a pamphlet to refute the ridiculous
statements of the opposition, one of
which had been sent to every elector
in the city. Hy some sort of hocus
pocus the opposition liad attempted
to allow that the defioit was somewhere between §300,000 and $700,-
000 and had they continued their
calculations the deficit would now
have boen somewhere near $14,000,.
000. Had the opposition said lhat
tlie revenue for the term of the gov.
ernmenb had beeu §1,800,000, ihu
expenditures ubout #1,700,000, leaving a surplus of §100,000 in the
treasury, thuy would have qpoken
the truth. On the 30th of-June,
1885, there was $100,000 to the
credit of tho government, but since
then, to meet the requirements nf
the increased expenditures, it had
been found necessary to negotiate a
loan. The policy adopted was to
increase the urea of taxation to keep
the country going, so thut those who
come after may fuot the bill. He
was amused at a statement made ul
Mr. Carey's meeting, that Uio debt
of the province was $1,100,000; Mr.
Beaven had'said it mat £7-17,500.
Ue had prepared a statement which
showed thut when Mr. Heaven retired from oll'u-e thorn was n net indebtedness hi •••840,000, while on
the 80tli of June, 1885, tliere was a
debenture debt, less sinking fund, uf
8508,704. Taking it foi' granted
lhat tlie last debentures hnd been
unlicipaiod, the debt would he $900,-
000 more, but. tliis was uut lhe case,
Thc actual debt now stood 8201,925
less than it did in .iiine)188.'l," Now,
the treasurer must know n gival. t!*-.il
more abuut tlie iiimii-jiiil condition
of tlm country than those per-sons
who arc so loudly shouting about
ruin ; and as he can lie hold i-u-p-m
slide for his utteram-es and tlm
others cannot, it is fair to pi-csume
that his s'utentents are rorreiri. If
they are. what a frightfully exaggerated picture is being hold up by
the opposition as an accurate representation nf tho truth I llThe actual
dttbt now ulawls %3ftl,Qffl less than

St.   John's  Dav.— Thursday,   the

Bright and Encouraging.—W, H.
Castile, of Vancouver City, B.C., saya
the London .Free Press, reports that
during u recent trip through the mountain section of the C.P.R., occupying
10 days, he snw somo astonishingly
rich exposures and deposits of gold
and silver bearing quartz, with other
vnlunble nnd commercial deposits, including mica (8x10 feet sheets), alum
and kaulin, a valuable clay used in the
manufacture of chir\a and pottery. He
further observes that things are looking exceedingly encouraging in all
parts of British Coiumbin at present,
and that in and around his owu particular section, Vancouver and Coal
Harbor, tho outlook is of the very
brightest. The Canadian Pacifio Railway Co., it appears, aro making oxten-
rive improvements, and private capita-
ista following suit.
Excursion Tourists.*—Tho Cana-
ian Pacifio railway people are making
iirriu.geiiier.tB in Euglnnd for nn extended tourist business to Western
Canada this year. Messrs. Cook &
Son, the well known tourist managers,
are preparing the programme of n personally conducted tour through Canada
to the Pacific, to leavo Liverpool in
tho aiiium!*. The opening of tho line
to tho cast of British Columbia has
done much to attract attention in lhe
old country to tho Pacific provinco as
a tourist region, and while no groat
rush must he looked fur at first, u fair
travol uf this class is anticipated. Thi
colonial exhibition is also a powerful
^stimulus in this direction. Already
'several parties have left for hunting
and sporting tours in the Northwest
and British Columbia as a direct re
suit of the gamo exhibits shown in the
excellent Hubbard collecti'-n. If the
arrnngetnents for this special autumn
tour are carried out in their entirety,
it will of course be competent for Canadians to join the party and go through
to the Pacific in .company with the
British tourists.

action in the matter of the erection of
the presbytery of British Oolumbia,
nnd that the same hu connected with
thu synod of Manitoba aud the Northwest, and that tho tirst meeting be
hold in St. Andrew's church, New
WustminBtur, on the first Tuesday of
August, nt 10 a.m. Rev. D. M. Gordon, Winnipeg, in moving n resolution
in accordance villi thu Btiggostioii, ---lid
there need be no fenr uf clashing with
tho presbj'tery of tho church of Scot-
laud, for this proposition wa* well roceivod by the members of that body.
Hu thought this waa the proper timo
to suggest thu namo of the firat moder*
nlor of Iho new presbytery, nnd ho
would suggest that Rev. Robt. Jamieson, thu oldest missionary of this
church in British Columbia, should be
appointed, (Apuluutc,) This wns added to the resolution, whioh wns carried unanimously.
The Branch Hallway.
So far as we aro ablo to learn from
official sources, no change haa been
made in the programme announced in
our laat iaaue for the official opening of the O. P. R. The firat
train ia expected to leave Montreal tomorrow or Monday (we hope it will be
Monday), and arrive at Port Moody
next Friday or Saturday. This train
will be a special, and ia expocted to
bring no ordinary passengers, but high
railway officials, members of parliament, journalists, and distinguished
men in various spheres of life. It ia
presumed that these gentlomen will
visit all the points of interest in the
province, and return to their eastern
homes to digest the wonders that will
fill them with astonishment. The
ship New York arrived at Purt Moody
laat Tuesday with 2700 tona of steel
rails. The grading will be finished on
the branch line to this city by the
ond of next week, and very soon the
bridgea aud piling will be completed.
In three weeks from thia day the
branch line could be ready for business. It ia the intention of the company, we believe, to complete and
equip tbis branch without delay, and
run trains regularly to this oity.
The company does not intend to keep
up the transfer business at Port
Hammond any longer than ia found
absolutely necessary, and will hasten
the branch ao aa to bring aa much
of the river,tauufar buaintaa as pea*,
sible to this city. We mny look for
the opening of the branch line,
therefore, in about three weeks, and
the event will be one of the most significant and important that ever transpired in our history. There ia every
reason to expect that this city will be
the terminus of the C. P. R, for some
months at least, because of the serious
obstacles which hare been put in the
way of extension to Vancouver,
Dominion Lands.

As much annoyance mid dissatisfaction have been caused by tho Dominimi
land regulations, ami the opposition
has been carrying through tho district
an erroneous report to the effect that
tho provincial government had not concerned itself to reinon* this serious
grievance, wo publish tlie following
order-in-council to show that prompt
and enetgetic action has been taken.
This order-in-council was passed on
28th May, 1886. In our next issue
we shall publish another on the same
subject passed last April:
The Committee of Council have had
under consideration the "Regulations for
tbe disposal of Dominion lauds within
the railway belt in the province of British Columbia," adopted liy Order in
Council, dated April l>0tli, 1885,
The committee regret to observe tliat
these "regulations," by reason of cum-
bersome and vexatious provisions and
excossive imposts, are altogether unsuit-
ed to the wants and conditions of this
provinco; that they are in somo respects
inconsistent with the spirit, if not a violation of the letter, of thc agreement
arrived at between the two governments,
and it is believed that any attempt to
enforce them would be prejudicial to the
best interests, If not dangerous to the
peace, of the community.
The privilege of homestead entry is
confined to auch lands as shall have been
aurveyed  and  the survey  thereof foi

uially confirmed by the "department uLJ#htei,\_y at the nomination.'' I'hey were
the interior.    This limitation is cal^WooroiftatOT "     '
■fated-'to operate jirejrtmctoily tosottk
ment, especially in view of the delay
whicli has occurred and, to all appearance, is likely to occur iu placing these
lands in a position to be homesteaded
conformably with this provision.
It was agreed (inter alia) by the Dominion government that agricultural
lands within the railway belt in British
Columbia would bo thrown open with all
convenient speed to actual settlers, at
the prise of one dollar an acre—an agreement not qualified by limitation as to
time or survey. Assuming that section
9 provides for regulating tho prico of
these lands by Order i'i Council conformably with said agreement, tho committee
would point out thc serious hindorance
to settlement caused in the past by the
unceitaiuty as to right and conditions of
homettoad eutr*/— a state of things wliich
it is feared will only be intensified by
the regulations now under review,'
The exemptions from homestead entry
iu section IH, subsection 11, uro of a
character to deter tho tho conscientious
immigrant from availing himself uf the
so-called privileges thereunder. It might,
indeed, be diflicult to find a (ptarter-scc-
tion of which the settler could not be
deprived by a rigid application of tliese
provisions.
The extent of improvements exacted
under section 20, subsection 4, is alto*
gether beyond the capacity of a single
settler, especially wheu it is considered
that much of tlio land within tlie railway belt on the Lower Fraser is heavily
timbered and very difficult to clear.
Section 12 provides that thc home-
steading regulations shall not apply to
lands settled upon after thc first day of
July .1885. Inasmuch as the right of
homestead entry is confined to surveyed
lands, and little or no lauds can he surveyed beforo the abovo mentioned date,
this regulation wuuld appear practically
to take away with one hand what it pro*
("  to give with the other—to mock
Opposition Tactics.
Editor Columbian.--As reports are
boing circulated by the interested parties that all thc candidates present at the
nomination retired in favor of Orr, McGillivray, and Ladner, I think it will be
in the public interest to expose the contemptible trickery that was resorted to
by certain candidates und their friends
yesterday at tbe nomination.
Six of the candidates nominated, viz.,
Orr, MoGUlivray, Ladner, Adam Innes,
and another body from Maple Ridge
whose name I don't at present recollect,
entered into what might be called a
,'pool," for the avowed purpose of determining which three of them should be
considered candidates of the party who
wish to oust the present administration
nud fall into the lap of Beaven k Co.
Some of the candidates present were
approach ed by "confidence men" who
were in the ring and advised and even
coaxed by specious promises of certain
nomination by the self-constituted convention (us they styled themselves). But
none were trapped hy the spiders except
that innocent body Isaacs, of Maple
Hidgc. Innes aud Dawson acted as the
coy-dud*; they were nominated without
the least idea of being elected, for I
don't lielievo they could be elected for
anything, even in their estimation, ex-
for such service as they performed
according to a preconcerted
heiii';, so that if aU tha candidates had
been foolish enough to go into the pool
their votes iu the bogus convention would
have presented the three, McGilHviay,
Ladner, and the carpet-bagger Orr as
the choice of the self*constituted bogus
convention. The same tactics tbat was
attempted yesterday carried McGillivray
into the legislature of B. C. eight years
ago, nml gave him an opportunity to
show how easily he could flop aa a voting
machine from the service of one boss to
that ol another. James Kennedy.

the intending settler. This unreasonable
limitation is, moreover, a violation of
the agreement made between the two
governments, according to which agricultural lands within tlie railway belt in
British Columbia were to be open to
actual settler.- at one dollar an acre,
without limitations as to time.
Those sections of the regulation;. ..
lating to timber lands are equally, if not
more, objectionable, Generally', the pin-
visions and restrictions are so cumbersome as to become vexatious, if not absolutely impracticable, when applied to
the scattered and remote timber lands of
this province.
When it is considered that our lum
boring industry is only in its infancy!
struggling at enormous disadvantage
•gainst tho gigantic establishments and
heavy customs tariff of a powerful neighbor, it is submitted that to still further
handicap it by imposing the cumbersome
aud vexatious regulations ami restrictions already adverted to, and to add to
these the heavy imposts provided for iu
sections 44, 46, and (ill wonld be to paralyze, if not absolutely crush out this important industry.
Section 27 declares "tlmt no grant
from the crown of lands in freehold or
for any less estate has operated or will
operate as a conveyance of the minerals
therein, unless the same are expressly
conveyed in such grant."
Crown patents issued in this province
for lands within thc railway belt, as else*
whete, have, by intendment of law,
though not "oxprcasly," conveyed everything on and under the land, excont gold
and silver; and if the words above quoted
arc intended or calculated to disturb the
patentee in the enjoyment of his accustomed rights, or if they are intended or
calculated to interfere with the acquirement of similar rights by settlers within
the said belt whu may lie entitled hereafter to receive patents from tho provincial government, tho committee desTc
respectfully but most emphatically to
protest against an innovation so inconsistent with the principles of justice and
constitutional law.
It is respectfully submitted that the
people of Uritish Columbia arc the best
judges of what is calculated to promote
internal prosperity and well-being, and
the simple circumstance of their own
leyinluturo having, iu dealing with the
provincial lands, imposed regulations immeasurably less onerous ami charges less
than one-fourth of those undor t-6view
muy fairly be accepted as a very con-
elusive argument iu support of the contention that tho D&mhuon laud regulations are illiberal and burdensome.
The committeo desire to call special
attention to tho following Tho effect of
saddling the Dominion timber lands with
regulations so much more onerous and
imposts so very much heavier than tliose
imposed upon contiguous provincial timber lauds, must obviously he to confine
lumbering operations almost entirely t.i
the latter, with the still more serious result of destruction of the former by lire
as settlement penetrates the forest.
Thus not only would an iiiipoilunt, industry bu seriously crippled meanwhile,
and federal and provincial revehiies
thereby depleted, hut enormous forc6t
wealth woultl be completely dostmved.
The committee most respectfully uah-
mit that the true Interests of the coun
try, both Dominion and provincial, would
lie host promoted by having the lands
within the railway belt administered on
terms similar or approximating to tho.se
governing contiguous provincial lands.

withdrawn.
Pauls, June 23.—The government
at 'd o'clock this afternoon will issue
decree expelling the French Princes
from the country. The priftces will
leave France to-night. On tbe occasion of tho departure of the exiled princes, Count Foticher de Caril, ambassador to tho Austrian court, has resigned
in protest against the action of his government in expelling the Frenoh princes. It is bolioved thnt Waddington,
French ambassador to the court of St.
James, will resign in consequence of
the expulsion of the priocei His resignation is momentarily eipected.
The royalist proas pronounced the passage of tho expulsion hill tho forerunner
of the downfall of the republic. Moderate republican papers generally criticise the uu'.isiire as unjust. Count and
Connies of Paris and their son Louts
Phillipc aftor receiving their friends
to-morrow will embark at Fraeport iu
the afternoon. The Count's manifesto
will be issued on Friday. Prince Na-
poloon (Ploii Plon) is going to Geneva,
and his son, Prince Victor, is going to
Brussels. Neither, it ia thought, will
publish a manifesto. Prince Napoleon
started for Geneva this evening. He
was accompanied by a number of
friends to tho railway station where a
large concourse of people had assembled. No il-'inoiiBlration, howevor, waa

regard to the comparative merits or demerits of the Ina and the outs, I may
briefly, say that the present opposition,
when Its leader was in power, waB not In
my opinion worthy tlm confidence of nny
Intelligent upright mun, nnd never could
huvB my confidence, because It net an example for extravagance and Helflshness
whfch, I regret to say, the present administration hns not departed from following.
In fuet. It muy be truly said of Iho present
administration, ns was often said ofthe
Kings of Israel, that "they had not departed from the sins of Jercbonm the son
of Nebat, which made Israel tosln." But
should you do yourselves and me the
honor of placing me in a position of responsibility, I will endeavor to free you
irom the misrule of such governments
and place you Inn position in which you
can govern yourselves. As it Is essentially
necessary that tho representative (or thc

to uddress the electors for the district resident In the city uud vicinity, on Tuesday
evening,-29th inst., ut 8o'olock, when the

I believe that In the Interest of luw nnd

'nHto FkamMM,N,W„B,C, Langley Public Meeting.
lleporlod for tlioColumtonn.
Report of a public meoting callud
by the Hon.  Jno.   Robsoti, Langley
town hall 18th inst., Mr. .Tno. Maxwell in the chair.
Mr. Itobflon, after regretting his
having beou unable to visit the district
at an earlier date, explained that the
primary object of his visit was to ascertain from the poople the most necessary works required to bo dono on the
main ronds in this part of the district,
and requested that the different works
be brought up and voted ou iu tho order of their importance. He statod
that the estimates provided $20,000
for the district this year, exclusive <>f
$2,000 granted especially fnr the Yale
trunk road.
Moved by J. M. Johnston, that tho
repairs on the Langley trunk rood be
considered as being of tirst importance.
Seconded by F, Boyse.
Mr. Robson wished tho discussion
to tnke tho Hno of whether the whole
grant should be especially applied to
this   mul   or   distributed over most
necessary works.
The motion whs theu put itml carried
Moved by J. Jolly that two-thirds
only of the grant bo expended mi thu
trunk road.   Seconded by Mr. Carter.
Moved iu amendment by O. Raw
lingaoii, that only one-half tho grant
be expended on this road.     Seconded
by Mr. McKee.
The amendment was put, and carried
only by the chairman's vote.
After a long discussion on altera
tions to the wharf being a work of
necessity, and various remarks ns to
the greediness of the people living
back from the river, and the vast sums
that have already been swamped in tlm
trunk road—there being apparently no
.other settlen in the township having
any need for improved roads—it was
moved by 0. J. Robinson, that the
balance of the grant be placed in tho
hands of the municipal council tu bo
expended to the best advantage uf the
township. Seconded by G. Raffling*
son and carried.
Mr. Robson defended the squatters
for not paying taxes, blaming the Dominion government for their tardiness
in placing the land in the market.
On a question by Mr. Johnson, Mr..
Robson authorized the immediate expenditure of 81,000 on trunk road
repairs.
Hon. Mr., Robson being, he said,
pressed for time, took the present opportunity of addressing the people politically, and after giving what we [(resume to be his campaign speech, ably
defending the action of the government daring the past three and a half
years, requested a unanimous vote
from the people of Langley.
In reply to a question by Mr. Mc*
""Kee, Mr. Robson said that he was
authorized to state hy his colleagues
that of the 9250,000 refunded by the
Dominion government on the dry-
dock, only $150,000 has already been
spent and there waB still §100,000 to
come.
Dr. Kent also spoko in support of
the government and Mr. Robson, and
asked the people to return either himself or any candidate whom they felt
assured would support .Mr. Robson
and work generally in behalf of the
farming community.
It was then moved by Mr.'H. Wark
and seconded by Mr. H Harris, that'
this meeting use their beat efforts to
return Mr. Kobson and Dr. Kent as
their representatives at the coming
election.
The motion was carried unanimously
and with groat applause.
A vote of thanka for the chairman
and secretary, moved by Hon. Mr.
Robson and seconded by Dr. Kent,
was passed and the meeting adjourned.
A. J. Bovill, Sec.

way extension of Johnston road, No.
8; McLellan mad, No. !1; coast mondial), between Yale and McLollnn
roads, No. 10,
As this concluded tho ruad work
business bofore tho meeting the hon.
provincial secretary said he wuuld address the electors uu political mutters,
as ho would not have another opportunity of cluing so until he mot them at
tho hustings. He spoko of the m-ug-
ross the country had made during the
last three and a half yearH, compared
with the progress mado during tho
same length of time under the Wai-
kem-Beaveu administration; also of
thu settlement bill, the Coal Harbor
affair and other mattera. Ho assured
the electors that, notwithstanding opposition statements tu the contrary,
tho finances of the country woro never
in a mure healthy condition than at
present; further, that he was happy tu
he iu a position to state that (hero was
now an unexpended balanco on hand,
of the graving dock refund, umountiug
to §102,000, which, of right, belonged
to tho mainland, and would befe.xneud-
cd on mainland improvements.
Mr. Jas. Orr", being called upon for
an nddress, spoko of im personal
endeavors on behalf of tlio district
during tho timo ho had the lionet of
representing tho electors in tho lueal
legislature. Also ho spoke at considerable length on the fiscal policy tif
tho governmont and contended that
the dock refund had all been expended
two years ago, Mr. Orr concluded by
urging tho electors, irrespective of
party or parties voted fur, to endeavor
by all means to get every individual
voter to come to the polls and record
their votes; ho further announced
himself a candidate for re«eleotiou.    ,
The provincial secretary replied at
some length to the statements of Mr.
Orr. Dr. Kent alsu announced him-
elf as a candidate at the furthcoming
ilection, as a supporter of the present
govornmont. Tho meeting then adjourned. H. T. Thrift, Sec.
Surrey Public Meeting.
(Reported for the Columbian.)
The meeting was held at Surrey
T0wn Hall on the 17th inst., and called
to order. The reeve, Mr. Thos Shannon, was requested to act as chairman,
and H. T. Thrift as secretary. Tho
chairman said the object of the meet
ing waB that the electors of Surrey
might meet the hon. provincial secretary and discuss road matters and
other questions of importance to the
municipality.
The provincial secretary said he waa
glad to meet so many of the electors,
but before entering on tlm business pnrt
of the discussion he wuuld explain why
he did not appear before them at an
earlier date. He had hoped to have
seen them in May, but, owing tn the
continued illness of the deputy provincial secretary, a large amount of
departmental work devolved upon him*
self which would otherwise have been
done by the deputy; consequently it
was impossible for him to get away
sooner; in fact, the time he had at his
command was very limited, and he
would have to return to the post of
duty At the earliest possible moment.
As he knew something of pioneer work
and the difficulties the settlers had to
contend with in opening up a new
country, he would depend on tho judgment of the electors as to tho most
urgont requirements of tho district.
He showed whnt the government hud
already done and what they were now
doing. He referred to a list that hail
been handed him, said to comprise the
works, so far as known, of must urgont
neceisity in the district. It waa a
very modest sum that was asked for,
amounting to something like $2,000.
Mr. John Armstrong wished to draw
the attention of all present to the stato
of the Scott rond and moved that $400
be added to the list fur needed
pairs un that road. The inutiuu was
seeonded by the hon. provincial secretary and csrried.
Mr., Boothroyd, Mr. W. C. Luyo,
Mr. W. Smith, and Mr. Fan* spoke un
the wretched state of tho coast meridian road from tho hill, south of Yale
road, across Serpentine flats, and from
Oleson's hill, south, through Iho Kensington Prairie.
Mr. Boothroyd moved, seconded by
Mr. Parr, thaf $200 bo added to the
list for coast meridian, north of McLellan road.    Oarried.
On motion by Mr. E Purr, seconded
by Mr. Boothroyd, tho amount Hsked
for on coast meridian, south of McLellan road, wns increased to §400.
On motion by Mr. Cann, seconded
by Mr. Stone, tho amount asked fur
the 01o«rVall$ road, north of Yale
road, wm increased to 9400.
Mr. W. McDougall moved, seconded
by Mr. John Stewart, that $000 bo
SJMtd  on  the  Hit for opening the
emiahnoo road through from Elgin
to Semiahmoo Bay.   Carried.
Mr. Parr moved and Mt. Boothroyd
seconded, that *200 he placed on the
list to ba applied on the McLellan
toad, $100 eut, and $100 west, of the
town hall.   Oarried.
Tha pwrincial secretary suggested,
as thia appeared to be about all that
waa required at present, it Would be in
Older for the people to decide, out of
th* IW, which w«fe the mott Import-
Australia Oold Mines.
Confirmatory news has been received
from Kimberley, which shows that a
considerable amount of payable gold
has already been obtained, including
nuggetB averaging in weight from half
an ounce to 190.ounces. Specimens
liave already reached 'Sydney. The
gold appears to be but slightly water-
worn and cannot- have travelled far
from the matrix. It is cf good color,
resembling that from the Palmer and
Northern Queensland fields, and it
realizes a high market price. A rush
has already set in from Western Australia and from New South Wales.
Large numbers of -diggers, atorokeep*
ers and others havo found passage
round westward, while others from
Victoria, New Zealand, etc., have arrived iu Sydney, whence steamers arc
being specially laid on, most of which
will call at the Queensland ports on
route to pick up additional miners.
The two places of debarkation are
Port Derby (Kings Lound) nud Cambridge Gulf.
Mr. Derby, a merchant, writing on
March 'SO, Bays: "About eight men
havo made their wny in from the gold
fields. They report about torty men
up tliere. They have come in to buy
rations. It is going to be the largest
field in Australia. All the mon who
are in have gold with them, but tln-y
are keeping it dark, and have only
brought in enough for their wants. I
brought eighty-four ounceB from two
mon yesterday, twenty-two ounces
from another, eleven ounces from another and seven ounces from another
We hoar of another party near hero
who have 240 ounces with them, one
piece weighing nineteen ounces. It is
a beautiful samplo of gi.hl, unite as
good as the Palmer gold. What wo
havo purchased runs from livo ounces
to ono ounce, the pieces being all
water-worn except one parcel, which
was evidently got on the surface from
a rough leader. All I am afraid uf is
a big rush of meu with no money.'
The laboring white men demand
10s. a day for ordinary work, and it is
very diflicult tu obtain the services of
blacks. Chinese labor is also scarce at
present. A few miles from Derby Mr.
Derby saw a number of alligators in a
river, and ho has seen snakes also
very frequently, some of tf-em being
very long. He says that J50 miles of
tho 'HIO which divide Derby from the
diggings are over a buggy track. Tho
lieltef that tho field will pmvo one of
the must permanent and paying that
has yet been discovered in nuy part uf
the world grows daily; and as it haB
beun estimated by Mr. Hunlmiin, thu
government geologist nf Western Australia, that an auriferous area nf country extending uver some 3,500 of
4,000 miles exists, there appears to bo
ground fur the opinion. Mobs or
horses aro being got together for dispatch, and milch oows and cattle will
he sent to tho landing ports. Several
hundred sheep aro also being Bout to
provide tor temporary requirements.
The lutest information is a teloin-am
from Perlli, which states that a miner
named Morgan has returned to Port
Derby with a largo quantity of gold,
including a nugget weighing two and
a half pounds of solid gold.
The London correspondent'of the
Toronto Globe, in writing of Canada's
fruit exh|bit at tho colonial exhibition,
says that British Columbia contributes
tho largest pears on exhibition. Prof.
Saunders, nf London, Out., who has
charge of this department, assured thu
correspondent that mnny nf ihe samples from this province would weigh
from 1 to l_ pounds each. On all
grounds the exhibit is nn unqualified
success, eclipsing anything uf the kind
ovor before attempted.
The Hulibard game trophy continues
to effect tho practical gomlof which
wo recently spoke. Within the last
few days two more parties havo arranged to leave shorlly for sport in the
North* West nnd In British Columbia.
Among these is Major Scott, of tho Oth
Laucerw, who starts almost immediate*
ly with Mrs. Scott on an cxtondod
hunting trip under thu direction nf

linvim: had the honor to ho nominated

I would state that I um n farmer with

Iv it m hi n hotter position to know nil your
witnts, mul work fortho bcsl Interests of
the country, than men who have no per*
mniienl Interests und who have heretofore
almost Invariably turned Victorians as
sunn ns thev crossed Ibo Gulf of Georgia.
I um In fuvor of u removal of the capital from Victoria lo tlie mainland, ns be-
ins' more central,and to that end should
ondo.ivor to have Ibe constitution altered
so that ovory distriot should have representation iicconllm-* lo its electorate. In-

lm* four ropresontiillvcs. while this dis-
ti-lrt, willi over 1,'fiO voters, Is allowed but

I um furthermore of ihe opinion that
this district should bo subdivided, and
Hint the i*liv of Vnncouver should have
its own representatives.
II Is lo lie regretted tliat the land question Is uo nearer settlement thunitwns
