Obliterate the Barrier.
The question of our commercial
relations with Canada is one of
great and increasing interest to both
countries. Partial reciprocity, suoli
as prevailed under the treaty of
1854, is ut beet n make-shift. It
might be made the means for a temporary settlement of the fisheries
dispute una might benefit certain
interests, but it would be almost certain to result in renewed dissatisfaction and would Im liable to be overthrown at any time. The natural
trade relations for; two countries
situated us the United States and
Canada are would be those of complete commercial union, an entirely
free interchange between the two
countries of the products of both.
Many Canadians are evidently
afraid of the effects of this, thinking that they would be overweighted
by the capital and the advantages
already acquired by this country.
The manufactures that have been
fostered by the protective policy of
the last eight years at the expense
of other interests are especially op-
prehonsive of it, and some of them
would doubtless for a time be unfavorably affected. But for the
industrial and commercial interests
of the Canadian people as a whole,
there can be no reasonable doubt of
the beneficial results. There is a
perpetual argument in its favor be
tore tho eyes of the people of both
countries, the significance of which
is strangely overlooked or underestimated. The imaginary line which
separates Canada and the United
States has naturally no more commercial significance than the line
which separates the different states
or the different sections of'the union.
It has much less significance than
the line between some of the sections, as the north and the south,
nnd yet nobody denies that complete freedom of trade between the
states and sections of this country
is not only mutually advantageous,
but most potent in promoting the"
general prosperity of the. whole.
Of course commercial union tetween
the countries would necessitate an
assimilation of their tariff's so far as
other countries are concerned. But
that ought not to be a matter of
great diSculty. Canada has already
established a tariff approximating
in character and purposes to our
own, while ours is in need of modification in tho direction of hers.
Whatever argument may be made
in favor of the barrier which these
tariffs raise against distant countries, there is no ground on which it
can be defended as between the two
countries themselves, Neither needs
nor is benefited by protection against
the other any more than New England needs or would be benefitted by
protection against the Middle States
and vice versa. On the contrary,
each would derive substantial benefit from freedom of intercourse,
This is the conclusion toward whioh
nature and reason point, and it is
the one toward which thorough discussion and a broad view of the
elements of the situation will bring
the people of both countries.—.V. Y.
Timet. '	
The Monetary Timet of a late
date says: "Two Oemian naturalists,
M. C, A, and J. A, Purpus, have
been officially sent to Canada to explore British Columbia and "other
regions which are comparatively
little known," The result of their
labors will be published not only in
Germany, but also in Russia, Hun-
spiry and Belgium, The first three
of these countries are specially interested in this expedition, These
scientists propose to remain three
years in the country. They will
make a thorough examination of
the natural products of the country,
of whioh samples will be sent lo
Europe.   These gentlemen will be-
S'n their labors without unnecessary
ilay; and no doubt the result will
be of considerable value not only to
Canada but to other parts of the
world with whioh she is or may be
connected by commerce,"
The amount annually spent by.
the European countries to keep up
their armies and navies is .£181,
130,000. The amount spent by
America is about .£8,000,000. Ad
ding, therefore, the cost for war
debts and armaments together, it
will be seen that Europe pays £.194,-
760,000, and America £18,000,000
per annum. How possibly can
Europe hope to hold her own against
her transatlantic rival, when she
handicaps herself in the struggle for
commercial supremacy with the stupendous charge of £376,000,000
per annum) As if this were not
enough, Europe is each year increasing, her burden, whilst America is
each year reducing hers.-—London

O'BRIEN W HAMILTON,
He Is Shot at While Driving
Through the Street*.
Receives   Tkrealealug tellers—India,
pose* at Freseal.
Hpcdul to tho Columbian.
Hamilton, Out, May 23.—O'Biien
arrived here at noon today from Niagara falls. Tho meeting was held at
thu Palace Kink on Jackson strest.
O'Brien spoke as usual, tellina his audience the object of his mission to
Canada. A oruwil of several hundred
collected hi Jackson street, opposite
Hie Rink, just as was the case st
Kingston, whilo the nesting was go-
iug on. They were Orangemen, but
the chief >.f police drove them att%
and allowurj no one to stand in- the
block. What lie did probably prevented a riot! for had there been any
attack tile men who met O'Brien at
the depot in the forenoon, and who
Were on hand in hundreds inarching
up nnd down on side streets, would
have done terrible execution.O'Brien's
body-guard in Hamilton was an organised reality, But the worst was to
come. Another attack was made on
O'Brien, this time with firearms, and
again there was a miraculous escape—•
this escape, however,' being accompanied by a wound in the wrist of one of
O'Biien's faithful companions. O'Brien
was silling down after having made a
vigorous speech in return for a vote of
thanks passed, and Kilbride was engaged in a like task. Just then a
man was observed on the platform
leaning over and whiapering something in O'Brien's ear. It was noticed
that O'Brien shook his head ss though
in dissent. The man persisted. Half
of the audience now rose to their feet,
peering over each other's heads and
anxiously striving to catch a glimpse of
what was going forward on the platform. Thoy had noticed the man
whispering to O'Brien, and they were
evidently determined to" see what it
meant, The man sgain made his appeal, whatever it was, and O'Brien
ugain shook his head. Still one more'
appeal was made.and this time O'Brien
seemed to acquiesce. The first sign
of commotion was when Mr. O'Brien
got up and left the platform. It was
the idea of sumo officious and meddlesome man, a plan which he had to
save O'Brien's life. The plan waa to
leave the rink by a narrow alley, then
reach McNab street aiid jump into a
carriage in, waiting and drive to the
inotel. .itlt.Moe the first time during
the tout that he did not go out the ordinary way, and the plan well nigh
cost him his life. In the carriage,
which was covered, there were besides
O'Brien Messrs. McMshon and Roche,
of the local branch of the national
league, and Dennis Kilbride. On the
driver's seat were John Nelson, who
held the reins, and Tip O'Brien. As
they whipped up the horses and faced
for the hotel a crowd suddenly an-
Ksred. This orowd proved unfrend-
.. for no sooner had O'Brien and hia
frlenda taken their places than they
set up the usual hissing and groaning,
which afterwarda proved to be a concerted signal to a group of five meu
who lurked around the market building iu Market Square. Men who
hissed and groaned followed the carriage, and iu Market Square there
was a suddeU click,tho horses pranced,
and a flash of light suddenly overspread Ilia group of building, when
the men lurked. The reins dropped
out of John Nelson's hsnds, and with
the exclamation, "Oh, my God, I'm
allot," he fell forward oh the seat.
He was painfully wounded in the
wrist. Crash, crash, quick as lightning*, and through bright flashes of
flam, sped bullets from two revolvers
until eight shots had been fired,
O'Brien stretched forward to look out,
and as he did so a bullet whistled by
his fsoe and passed through the oppo
site window without harniinganybody.
T. P. O'Brien, Nelson's companion,
graapsd the reins and dashed the
horses onward to the hotel, and
O'Brien reached his room in safety.
O'BMltN FIKKII THE KIBSI SHOTS.
The Hamilton Spectator, in its account of what occurred last night asserts that several shots wero fired from
O'Brien's carriage before the attacking
party touched a trigger. Speaking of
this matter O'Brien said it was the
meanest and most malignant attack
yet mado. Iu answer to a question as
to what effect this statement would
have on the remainder of his tour, he
expressed himself as follows: "So far
as it relates to the Canadian cities
whioh I have yet to visit it may have a
most dangerous and alarming result.
Seeing that it is downright falsehood
it must have been said with the pur-
riso of inviting an attack in Montreal,
feel perfectly at ease." O'Brien lay
in bed till midday consulting his physicians.
AT TRK MU,9.
Niaoaua Falls, Mny 24— O'Brien
arrived here this even-ng from Hamil*
ton, on his way to Mint'real. To-day
in Hamilton the following letter was
handed hiin. It was posted in East
Syracuse, N. Y., on May 10, and traveled to all the towns Mr. O'Biien has
visited, reaching him at Hamilton:
"East Svhai-usb, N. Y.,18.—A piece
of advice - Wm. O'Brien, you black-
heart*! Irish fool, if ymi ever make
your appearance in Kingston or Ottawa your blood will run oold. Take
my advice and go back to your blsck
Irish home. P. S.—I will be there in
less than 48 hours." "This letter,"
said Mr, O'Brien, " portends something dangerous, I do not as a rule
care much about threatening letters,
but the man who wrot. that is just th.
sort of fellow that shot at me last,
night."

The O'Brien Invasion.
Wc have all along hod a suspicion
that the reports of the inoidents
connected with Mr. O'Brien's visit
to Toronto and Kingston, sent out
by the associated press, were misleading. It did not seem to us at
all probable that in such orderly
cities, at a time when there wu no
cause for great excitement, and
where the authorities are certainly
not in sympathy with excess or disorder, open breaches of the peace
could be allowed with impunity.
The Toronto Globe containing an account of the Toronto affair is now
at hand, and in it we find no record
of such outrageous conduct as that
which appeared in the associated
despatches. The Globe mentions
that there were 100 policemen detailed for the protection of Mr. O'Brien and the maintenance of order,
and although thoir efforts were not
entirely successful, yet the distinguished Irishman wm treated no
worse than many distinguished Canadian politicians had been treated
by thou who did not wish to hear
sentiments opposed to their own.
The crowd, says the Globe, "had too
much respect for the police to act
with great brutality, and too little
respect for themselves to act decently." It goes on to say further: "Of
course no reasonable person can approve of the conduct of men who,
being perfectly free to stay away
from a public meeting, gather for the
sole purpose of debarring other citi
sens from their right to hear. Such
conduct is offensive, stupid and
mean. . But it is very hard to put it
down by the hand of the law. A
certain right to dissent from a spanker is well recognised, though its
limit cannot be defined. Yesterday
the limit was far overstepped, and
yet it is impossible to see how policemen, or all the military in the
world, could have done anything
more than was done to secure the
speakers a hearing. To club or arrest persons for singing "God Save
the Queen" or shouting "Hooray for
lord Lansdowne" would scarcely
do. The men who struck at others
were promptly and, so far as is yet
known, impartially pounced on by
the police. Those who drowned
Mr. O'Brien's voice have the excuse
that they had a legal right to be
there and some indefinite right tp
express dissent It is true that they
acted disgracefully, but they may
say it is also true that Mr. O'Brien
was guilty of offensive conduct in
persisting in an attempt to revile
the governor-general." From this,
and from the minute report of the
affair which appears in the Globe
elsewhere, we learn that although
Mr. O'Brien was not permitted to
speak (which was a shame), he was
not mobbed as stated by the Americano press despatches, He is accompanied by special correspondents of
some leading American newspapers
whose object is, apparently, to make
capital against Canada and in favor
of the Irish-Fenian element by misrepresentation and lying. Their conduct is not less disgraceful than
that of the hoodlums who hooted at
O'Brien in Toronto.
God Save the Queen.
Queen Victoria; the 'anniversary
of whose birthday has just been
observed with becoming rejoicing
throughout the civilized world, wu
bom on the 24th May, 1819, and
ascended the throne of Great Brit-
tain in June, 1837. No British
sovereign ever enjoyed a more pros
Cus and happy reign. Extend-
_ now over nearly half a century,
it rovers a period of the world's history more remarkable and eventful
than any other of which we have a
record in modem times. It has
been a period of wonderful advancement in all the peaceful arts. Invention has extended our knowledge
into regions that were before impenetrable, and patient research has
brought to light some of the most
important ana interesting laws of
nature. During the reign of Queen
Victoria the world hu been moving
forward in the field of discovery
and achievement with a swiftness
that could scarcely have been
dreamed of by the people who flour
ished fifty years ago. Every true
Briton is. proud of our queen and
- proud to pay her honor. Indeed,
those who with hearty goodwill
sing "God Save the Queen" may be
(rand throughout all civilised no*
tions, (or the praises of our queen
ere in all lands. The tendencies of
the tines ate certainly in the direction of democracy and communism.
Public opinion is fickle, and In the
British empire in late years the feeling hu been growing that a simpler
and more effective form of government than ours might be adopted to
the gnat advantage of the nation.
There are tee many well-fed drones
in the hire. The salary and allow-
aaoes of the queen are large, but
(hay art. oon»j*t»ttvely a small part

when the discussion oMheni is
a very practical people. Sentiment
goes but a short way when measured
against the public interest. While
no person would care to abridge the
period of Queen Victoria's reign by
proposing such constitutional amendments as would reduce by more than
one half the cost of preserving a
paid British aristocracy, the time
may not be far off when the nation
will be forced to consider this very
question with all seriousness. The
same observations apply in a great
measure to Canada. Can this country, with its population of 6,000,000,
afford to pay its official figure-head
$50,000 a year and perquisites, the
same as is paid for a figure-head to
the nation south of us with a population of 60,000,0001 In some of
the high-toned hotels one pays $3
for a dinner. The food costs about
50 cents and the style $2.50. Canada pays a great deal more for style
in Rideau Hall than she needs to
pay for a man capable of discharging with judgment and efficiency
the official and social duties of
governor-general. How long shall
we be content to permit ourselves to
be taxed for unnecessary and profitless official paint and feathers)

DIRECTORS' ANNUAL REPORT.
Gentlemen—In presenting our report
lor fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to state that it will bo an utter
imnoaaibiHty to run the hospital free of
dent on the grant just voted by the government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has been attentive in his
duties and reports a large increase in the
number of patients admitted during the
year, shewing also that we have received
patiente from all parts of the province.
There are a number of incurables in
thia hospital, some of whom wore brought
from Victoria hospital years ago. Iho
sum of f 1,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, the last
few years. The Board think, therefore,
that some ot these incurables should be
shipped back to Victoria.
A great number of Improvements have
been made daring tho year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-house built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; the
building being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable expend-
inure.
The hospital has been filled to its
utmost capacity during the whole year.
The Board desire to thank subscribers
tor generous aubatrlptions, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also the congregations of Holy Trinity Charon, St..
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist and
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladies and
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc-.—Mesdamea C. T. Woods, C.

The number of Incurables now In the
Hospital Is twelve [I'll. Thla large number requiring to be taken caro of tram
year to year renders It Impossible to make
a number of desirable Improvements In
the building, owing to the limited supply
of funds, I have Introduced tbo tiilile of
residences to show the people of Biltlsli
Columbia that they all ought to take nn
Interest In helping oo this Institution,
whioh Is Increasing In usefulness every
year, as may be seen by comparing the
number of Indoor patients of tho previous
year —seventy-live (75)-wlth this year-
one hundred and three (103).
Wo still require a lot of draining to be
done about and from the building. The
floors and walls have been Improved and
the new wash-room Is a great addition to
the comfort of the place,
I have gnat pleasure In thanking a
number of friends ot the Hospital for pre-
eenta of clothes, old linen, pictures, books
and papers, Again I have to thank the
steward, Hr. Charles Dlgby, for his coo-
slant attention lo the cleanliness of the
building and his kindness and attention
to the wants of the a|ok and his readiness
In carrying out all my directions, Before
closing this report I must offer my sincere
thanks to tbe medical gentlemen who so
kindly olftred their esafatance to myself
whenever required during the past year.

above the sidewalk. The;dimensions
will be 89 feet on Columbia street by
66 ft. deep. The building will be divided into three stores, each 66 ft.
long. Construction will be gone on
with as soon ss briok can be obtained.
Mr. E. S. Scoullar and Sheriff Armstrong are the projectors.
Miraculous Escape.—Oho day Inst
week a little daughter of Mr, Egan, of
Enterprise, hud a very miraculous
escape from a most horrible death. It
seems she was playing where her
father and others were clearing land.
One of hor brothers saw a tree falling,
and called to the others to run, After
the tree had fallen the little girl was
missing, and it was supposed her body
would be found crushed beneath the
trunk of the fallen tree. But a search
revealed the good newt that the was
caught in a cavity that had been burned in the tree. She was extracted
from her peculiar position by digging
a hole under the log. When taken
out she was unconscious, and was
found to be slightly bruised, but in a
few hours she had fully recovered, and
was almost as lively as before tho
strange accident occurred. It is said
that the hollow in which she was imprisoned was just large enough for her
body, and with a variation of a few
inches in any direction she would have
been instantly killed.—Maine Journal.
m	
As Usual.—Our Church-st cotemporary, as is his custom, totally misrepresents the Columbian's observations with respect to tho mails. The
Columbian did not advocate tho abandonment of tho river mails or tho river
mail subsidy. On the contrary, it distinctly stated that tho river mails to
Laduers and elsewhere between tho
river mouth una this city should
be carried by steamer. Our
suggestion related only to mail
matter coming from Victoria and
places beyond, and it pointed out
clearly tho advantages which would be
enjoyed by the change. Mails via the
inlet would reach this oity at 12:23
each day, whereas by tho other route
they need not be expected till 3 or
4 o clock. The change proposed would
not affect in the slightest degree the
steamboat service to this city, which
nobody knows bettor than the Church-
st organ. To-day wo have a sample
of the way the service works. At
the present writing (6:30 p, m.) there
it no Victoria mail insight. If it
had come by the inlet wo should
have received it at 12:231

we shall have the pleasure of seeing
him back in British Columbia before

Amos Hudgin, Toronto, writes: "I
have been a sufferer from Dyspepsia for
the past six years. All the remedies
tried wen useless, until Northrop A Ly-
now the Dai Was Spent.
The  Various Krcreatlons or Her Majesty's nirlliilay-Exriirsloas, Etc.
Yesterday was the 66th anniversary
of her majesty's birthday, and the
good and loyal citizens of Wettmin
ator and vicinity amused themselves in
many different ways in celebrating the
occasion, The Y. M. 0. A. excursion to North Bend was liberally patronized. The Westminster contingent,
consisting of three coaches well filed,
left the city at 8 o'clock. At the
junction they were joined by the Vancouver party. The excursion arrived
in North Bend about 1:40 p, m. Tbe
long ride was a trifto wearisome, but
the magnificent scenery along the line
of r.-iil contributed to make interesting
a trip that would have been otherwise
monotonous, Many of tho excursionists express themselves as not thoroughly in love with North Bend.
They complain that the town is rather
small and sparsely populated. The
return journey was begun at 4 o'clock.
There are quite a number of tunnels
between North Bend and Yale. During the passing of the train through
these tunnels a few funny incidents
are reported. One young man, from
Vancouver, with hit belt girl by hit
side, undertook to kiss his dearie in
the darkness, but alas! ere he could
accomplish hia object they emerged
into daylight end he was found with
his arms around the maiden's neck,
just iu the act of imprinting the
"yum-yum" on her rosy lips. Of
course tho young man felt rather
abashed at being discovered in such a
peculiar position, but it is safe to say
ho received ample compensation for
any confusion he may have suffered.
Another incident is reported. A lady,
well known in this city, arose and
stepped into the aisle for the purpose
of getting a drink at the further end
of the car. When almost at the end
the train dashed into the tunnel and
darkness ensued. The conductor just
at this moment opened the car door
and came forward. Of course he
rather jostled the lady, who threw her
arms around him to save herself from
falling. Here again the train rnahed
out of the tunnel, and the position of
the lady and the gallant railway man
was such aa to cause a smile. On arriving at Yale quite a number of the
gentlemen aboard, being very dry,
started for tbe nearest hotel to get a
drink. Ths train started rather suddenly, and they were left behind.
They rushed after the train, yelling
and waving their halt. After running
quito a distance the train halted and
the thirsty excursionists were soon
aboard, panting and perspiring from
their exertions. Nothiug else of interest is recorded. The train arrived
in this city at 10 o'clock last evening.

THE AIM OF " GRIP" is to sot forth, In

of (trip shows how woll this fact Is appro-
ciatciT-lls Cartoons nn the passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letterpress of the paper,—
though the latter Is equal to that of any
similar publication on the continent.

executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on the continent. The
advts, will be compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar 1m
provements will bo made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn tho title page; while tin. Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements In the artistic department.
The price of Grip will hereafter be 13 a
year, which Is lover than that of any
{taper of Its kind In A merle a,-rnont of
hem selling for 13. Single numbers of
Grip will be 10 cents.
Twice a year, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful special number will be
Issued, tbe number of pages being increased, and pleasing features introduced,
particulars of which will be given In preceding Issues. These numbers will be
presented to subscribers without extra
