Memporary Opinions.
The eloctrio motor in its application to nnuiufrtcturiny mul to trans-
poi'talioii ia mulling rapid strides,
and piomifiOH beforo man)' yeais lo
take its place amongst tlm wojidera
of the century without creating any
wonder to un age already Imrdeued
to the n i nr veil oils by tlio achievements cif the past half century. A
year ago electric cars moved through
crowded Vans sheets at nine miles
an hour, ai.d even passed over yards
of truckl.'SM ground in going from
one route to ai otliiir, At Vienna a
milo in three minutes wns llio regular rate of speed mnde liy a train
during tlie Electric Exhibition. At
Berlin a high lovet railway operated
by electricity was opened, and in
Hfivernl pnrts of the world electricity
hits been applied to locomotion aud
manufacturing, even the omnibus
being propelled on common roads
by it. On the Danube Canal last
year nu electric boat, carrying thirty
passengers, was plying, and without
smoke, heat, oil, noise, or vibration.
Tho Cleveland (Ohio) railway is the
latest addition to the list of applications of electricity. Tbo problem now is not merely how to apply
electricity to locomotion, but how to
do it so as to compete with steam.
—Globe,
Since Mr. Vnn Home's visit, the
vexed qnestion of where tlio Canadian Pacific terminus is to bn hai
been about decided. At any rate it
is known that instead of being Fort
Moody, ut the head of Uurrurd Inlet, the situation chosen will be at
Coal Harbor, English Bay, or False
Creek, all -of them" near bli<\ mouth
of the Inlet. Any one of these positions will be better suited to the
wants of a terminal city tban Port
Moody, though speculators iu Port
Moody property may not approve of
the change of base. There is no
doubt of tlie fact that there was uo
room at Port Moody for the railway
company. The lauds all being taken
up the Dominion government had
uot a tract of nny extent to give to
the company for numerous necessary
purposes. At Coal Harbor or English Bay there is public land enough and to s /tiro, and there is also
room for the growth of a largo
town. Tlm new choice is a wise
one. It would havo been foolish to
lmvo stopped the railway at Port
Moody, thus necessitating tho tedious
navigation of the inlet by the ferries between that port nud Kunaimo
and Victoria, The new terminus
brings the railway twelve miles
nearer to Victoria and Nanaimo,
and twenty-four mites in the round
trip is quite a consideration. Tho
lino to Coal Harbor will puss very
near or through the city of New
Westminster, which is another
weighty consideration. Tho nearer
tlio line approaches present trado
centres the moro likely are those
places to maintain their nupremncy.
The local government have acted iu
a spirit of libeuility towards the
railway company, while nt the same
time thoy have retained suOicietit of
the land to reap a goldon harvest
for the treasury hy its side. Wonld
it nut be an act of wisdom for the
government to throw a portion of
this land on the market for public
mm petit ion booh?— Victoria Colonist.
Under auy other system than
government by party for p-u-ty, the
doom of Hit John A, Maaioimld's
administration would bo sealed. The
astute Tory leader went to the country in the lust elections with a shibboleth that he foresaw would dazzle
tt people bofore whom thoie was no
great political issue, und tvhose first
wish was commercial prosperity. It
Is unnecessary now to enquire
whether the premier really believed
that the "national policy" would bo
productive of the results prophesied
uy Its advocates. Tt in sufficient to
remember that the present Dominion
government was elected to olfico in
order that tbey might carry out
pledges to formululo and sustain
lhat policy. Of its utter and conspicuous failure no person can bo
hotter awaro than Sir John A. Mao-
doimld himself- -for even bis bitter
est enemies have ever credited that
gentleman with practical commou-
sense. For months tho murmurs of
disappointed farmers, disheartened
mechanics, and disgusted factory-
workers, who wore promised a com*
mcreial millennium if thoy voted for
the N, P., have testified to their
disillusion; und the nnkitidest eut
of all wns tho cold-blooded manner
in which a leading exponent of the
policy virtually acknowledged its
failure by nutting down the wages
-of employes, on the plea that business is not good enough to justify
its owners continuing the scale which
had been pnid for some time past.

NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. (}., SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1884.
NUMBER 15
in the Bitnifl place, as in tlie other
lending cities of the Dominion, business men of all kinds are pining
through u very anxious time; ind
now the much-vaunted pantos* for
all commercial ills receives it* coup
de grace at the hands of the Olobe,
whoso commissioner—a coneem-
tivo, it is understood—on his return
from a tour of the principal Mjtnu-
faoturiiig concerns in Cantdtf, is
compelled lo acknowledge the utter
failure of high taxation. Many
factories, ho reports, are closed or
aro running short time; employment
has become source, and a general reduction of wages has taken place
since thn high tariff oame ill. But
if Sir John A. Macdonald had one
strong point whioh raisexl him*!)ead
and shoulders above the public'men
of the day, it was his capacity as a
constitutional lawyer. So wo have
been fondly told by Ins admirers
fifty times. Even those whu shook
their heads with a grave dubiety at
his N. P. were content to stake thoir
reputation on tho premier's legal
iicnmon. Tho decisions of the privy
council in tlio Insurance, thn Mercer, the Streams, the License cases,
and the Boundary . Award, must
have proved a rntlo awakening to
these and lhe Tory party generally.
Not that it is to be supposed Canadian Tories will for ono moment acknowledge the defeat and discomfiture of their cliief, or that they will
confess his policy discredited. Ho
is the only man who can hold them
together, and so long as he can do
that nnd keep them in offico it matters nothing how complete a failure
ho proves. So that, after all, as
Sir John's supporters are Toties
first and 'iaiiadians afterwards, it is
not at all probable that the collapse of
tlie N. P. or his disastrous defeat
on tho boundary ami other questions will jeopardize his control of
the political loaves and fishes. -The
Week (In'lepemlent.)
Indian Affairs.
Mr. Jas. Lenihan, formerly Indian
agent nt this city, sends the following
letter to the Linsday (Ont.) Post: I
havo been requested to give my views
on tho truo policy for the management
of Indian affairs iu British Columbia.
I ulli.1I endeavor to outline briefly a
plan which I believe would be n great
improvement on tho present system.
There ahould be two chief superintendents for the province, who should give
their undivided attention to the duties
of thoir offices, as tho territory is very
extensive nnd the duties tuo important
to bo discharged by ono, uo matter how
ellicient he may bo. As a matter of
good policy, and on the true basts ot
representation by population, one of
such superintendents, aud ut loast one-
half of the local agents, should bo of the
Roman Catholic faith. This would insure greater confidence among the
lnrge number of Indians who profess
that religion. The chief superintendents should reside in the most central
and accessible points within their res*
peetive superintendences, and should
make annual visits to as many of the
tribes as possible, and such chief superintendents nnd local agents should
have larger and more liberal discre^
tionary powers than at present. Too
much red tape often causes much
trouble and suffering amongst the pour,
aged, indigent and sick Indians. The
chief superintendents together with
tlio lieutenant-governor should constitute a local board for the supervision
and management of Indian affairs, the
lieut.-governor to act as chairman ox-
officio of sueh bonrd. Such beard
should meet nt least once a year, and
bo aubject at nll times to tho call of
the chairman in cases of emergency.
I recommend this courso because a
local board is more competent to inaugurate reforms nnd meet emergencies thnn any over-worked deputy
hend of u department cau be who is
constantly confined to his office at Ottawa, and who never had any actual
nsporionco in tho field. Tho effete,
obsolete and narrow polioy of old
colonial times is not iii harmony with
tho spirit of our more advanced and
enlightened institutions. It is a miserable and enfeebling policy, which Is
boing advocated by men unacquainted
with responsible government a. understood by Canadians. Schools should
be established for the education of
Indian children, and those now in existence should bu more liberally subsidized.
Recent investigations on the bacteria! source nf many epidemics suggest
tliu possibility that as in tho plant
world the multiplication of certain injurious insocts enn lie kept in check
liy employing parasites to destroy the
insects, so may also the germs of cer
tain diaoasos be checked by making
the veins and arteries and mucus membranes of patients a battle ground
between injurious bacteria nnd their
natural enemies.
A New York despatch states that an
individual in that state, bound over to
to keep the peaco with his wife, was so
irritated by this interference with hi.
liberty that ho poisoned himself, evidently holding tho view that life without tho privilege of abusing his wifo
was not worth living. His example
might bo followed with advantage to
the genoral community by the whole
race of wife-beaters.

Hallway Matters.
There no longer remains nny
reasoiiulile doubt that the t'amulian
Pacific Railway will he continued
down to Coal Harbor or English
Bay, and that it will go via Burnaby
Lake, There nre few people in this
province, wc apprehend, who will be
taken by surprise at this. Those
whose speculative schemes obscured
their calm judgment may hare succeeded in [jersuading themselves
that the final and only terminus
would always be at Port Moody,
bnt this delusion, fortunately, did
not extensively prevail. No, person whose judgment wns unbiassed
oMild examine Burrard Inlet without coming to the conclusion that,
for the purposes of a great transcontinental railway terminus and a
large commercial city, Coal Harbor
or English Bay had important and
manifest advantages over Port
Moody. It was nlso known to every
ono that Port Moody was fixed
as the government terminus simply
because it happened to be the nearest point at which tide water could
be reached on the route selected.
As soon as the road passed out of
the hands of the government, the
syndicate would be perfectly free to
cirry it to any other point, and it
would undoubtedly go where the
interests of its owners would best
be served. It is more than a month
since Mr. Onderdonk, ut the request
of the syndicate, explored the route
via Burnaby Lake to Coal Harbor,
and made an estimate of the cost of
carrying the line down to that pint.
In a conference with some of our
representative citizens, who waited
niton him for the purpose of discussing the New Westminster and Fort
Moody branch, Mr. Oiiilerduuk
stated plainly that the syndicate
proposed to take the line down to
Coal Harbor. Mr. Van Home's
declarations in this city removed
whatever doubt might have remained
on this point, and made it very
clear that arrangements for tlie proposed extension would be mode at a
very early day. The whole line of
the C. P. IL, Mr. Van Home said,
would be completed within sixteen
months—that is, before tho end of
1885. The syndicate knows well
enough that the road will not pay
running expenses west of Brandon
for many years if it has to depend
solely upon local traffic. Mr. Van
Home stated, what most people
already knew, that the syndicate
had taken thia road, not for the pur
pose of gratifying national pride,
but to mnke it a paying investment
for tho company. This could be
done only by establishing a trade
across the Pacific Ocean, and the
syndicate wished to have all arrangements ready to handle this trade as
soon as the road was completed. It
will be necessary, therefore, to begin the erection of terminal works
without dely. Mr, Van Home inti
mated that the cost of these terminal works would probably exceed
$5,000,000. This, wo suppose, includes wharves and side tracks, as
well aa workshops, freight sheds,
nnd passenger station. Now, if
these works are to be completed and
ready for the opening of the road
next year, it is altogether probable
n commencement will Imve to bo
made this full, The expenditure of
so large a. sum of money in this immediate vicinity will undoubtedly
give a considerable stimulus to the
trade and industries not only of the
city but of the district. In view of
these developments in railway matters, it beoomes tbe duty and interest of tbe people most affected to
make auch preparations as will enable them to take the fullest advantage of the new order of things.
It is no longer necessary to discuss
the New Westminster it Port Moody
Railway scheme as at firat proposed.
The change of terminus will bring
the C. P. It. so near to this city that
we shall be almost on the main line.
The short spur spoken of by Mr.
Van Home will be easy of construe
tion. and will require very little
expenditure, but it must not be lost
sight of. In order to handle heavy
freight with success tho road must
come into the oity somewhere, and
it will be the duty of the city coun-
ail to witch thia matter with great
care. Much has been Baid resecting the policy of the local government With respect to the, public
lands in the vioinity of the terminus. Of tbat policy we have no
certain knowledge. It is believed,
however, tbat the O. P. R, syndi.
cate has applied for a portion of
thete lands for the purpose of erecting terminal works thereon.   Mr,
Van Home said the government
did not seem disposed to give up as
much us llio syndicate auks; but it
is believed the matter was finally
arranged by a compromise which
will be accepted by tho railway
people. We do not know how
much laud the railway company
asked, or how much the government
consented to give. It may be safely
assumed, however, that the whole
of these lands will not be handed
over to the syndicate, as has been
hinted in certain quarters. The
government could not do this without committing an act of supreme
folly for which we can see no sufficient excuse. The extension of the
road to Coal Harbor will givo the
provit.ee ahout 20 miles of additional railway, and bring it within
reach of a great many people who
could not avail themselves of its
advantages if it remained at Port
Moody. It will also secure a much
better position for the terminus, enabling the company with, economy
to handle a larger business and compote with greater success against
rival railways. But if by giving
even one half these reserved lands
to tho syndicate, the value of the
remaining half should bo increased
fifty or a hundred fold, we think
the duty of the government would
become sufficiently plain. Without
a railway to Coal Harbor it is doubtful if these 20,000 acres of reserved
lands would bring ono dollar an acre
all round. But if Coal Harbor or
English Bay is made the terminus,
and the government gave a portion
of its lands for tho purpose of making it so, we may icasonably expect
thut the balance could be sold for
millions. This would furnish the
province with u new and extensive
source of revenue which would be
as welcome us it is unexpected. It
would enable the government to expend sums on publio roads and other
permanent improvements throughout the country which otherwise
could not be dreamed of. If by an
act of reasonable generosity the
government is able to do this, we
think that act will meet with the
approval of the country. It should
uot be forgotten that these lands
formed part of the ruilway belt, and
if the Dominion government had
made un arrangement with the syndicate to build this pot tion of the
road, these lands would never have
come into our possession at all. It
is estimated thut the amount of reserved land is from 20,000 to 23,000
acres, and we apprehend thnt after
the syndicate has been satisfied
there will be quite an important
and valuable estate left for the province. Tbe Colonist suggests that a
portion of this should be placed in
the market at an early date, and we
quite agree with tho suggestion
There are many people who ure
anxious to secure a lot or two somewhere near the terminus, and if one
or two thousand acres of the reserve
were surveyed into small parcels and
sold by auction it would give the
public an opportunity to benefit by
the advance which is expected to
come witti the commencement of
work nt the terminus. While there
may be some money lost at Port
Moody iu consequence of this new
development, it iB undoubtedly a
great deal better for the province
that the question of terminus is
definitely settled. Tt ia quite true,
as stated by Mr. Van Home, that
many eastern capitalists ure looking
to British Columbia for investment.
So loug sb the final locution of the
terminus remained u matter of
doubt, capital in large quantities
would not come. Everybody knows
that when Coul Harbor or English
Bay is reached, there the road will
stop. Traffic may bo curried on to
Nanaimo or Victoria by steiimeis or
forties, but thu rond itself cannot go
across the gulf. There need be no
fear, therefore, of investing money
at the new terminus, for it cannot
be changed. The people of Port
Moody need not lose their investments either, if Mr. Van Home's
ideas ure correct. He stated clearly
that Port Moody would uot be
abandoned, as the syndicate would
require both lines, and might need
the whole of the inlet for its ruilway and shipping business. Property at Port Moody may suffer a
decline for some years, but it will
eventually become valuable. The
settlement of the terminus question
is a matter of both provincial and
national concern, and we shall be
disappointed if the commencement
of the terminal works does not pro
duce suoh a boom as has nevor before been experienced in this coun*
try. Mr. Van Home's vision of a
city extending from the Fraser
Biver to Burrard Inlot before the end
of this century may not be realized,
but there is every reason to believe
that many of us will live to see on
this peninsula one of the largest
and most important oities it the
Dominion of Canada.

Rak's New Stohk.—A fow days ago
Mr. Wm. (too took possession of his
now store, adjoining the Colonial
Hotel. Mr. Rae was one of the
heaviest sufferers by the fire last winter, but wo are glad to know that ho
has been ablo to provide a building in
ovory respect superior tu the one that
wus burnt. The structon is of buck,
23x70 foot, nnd 2 storios high. The
ground floor is occupied by store and
millinery show room. The store proper
is 20x45 feet, and immediately in the
rear of it is tho millinery show room,
15x20 feet, from which it is partially
separated by a hundsotne arch. Tho
shelving of the storo is spruce, with
facings of stained cedar. The counters
nro fir and cedar. The building is
lined with wood, painted white. Thore
are two commodious show windows in
front. The millinery work rooms are
upstairs, as well us tho fumily apartments. Altogether tho establishment
presents a fine appearance, and it is
well filled with a very large atook.
Mr. Rae intends to increase his millinery department by considerable ad*
ditioiiB, as ho has hitherto not been
ublo to meet the demnnds of n growing
trade. Miss Brine lias just nrrived
from St. Johns, N.F., whoro she has
been superintending a millinery establishment, nud will assist Mi's. Rue with
that department in this city. The new
building cost about 84,000, nnd we
hope thut its energetic proprietor will
realize his highest expectations.
Meade's New Premises.—Mr. Goo.
Meade has taken possession of hid new
shaving nud haii-dru^sing parlor on
Colombia street, aud although the interior fittings nro uot yet all in place a
description of the premises may bo iu
order. It will bo remembered that
Mr. Meade wns burned out last winter
ut tho firo which carried nway tho Colonial -Hotel. On tho site of his for
mor placo of business ho has orected a
substantial brick building, two stories
high. Tho ground floor contains tho
shaving, hair-dressing nnd shampooing
parlor, a line room 18x25.. Tin-floor
is painted, und tho walls are decorated
with richly-colored pnpor, mid all tbe
fittings uro neat and tasteful. The
room fronts on Columbia st.,undis
provided with a largo and handsome
show-window, In thu ceiling is a very
handsome centre-piece, und the wash-
stand is provided with a marble top.
There are throe elogant chairs fur customers, tn front of which hnng three
largo und beautifully-mounted mirrors.
In the roar of this room uro tho bathrooms, threo in number, provided with
hot and cold wuter, shower baths, and
every comfort nnd convenience one
could wish. Thoro is a bath-room upstairs for ladies, and tho establishment
in provided with closets, both down
and upstairs, hnving the latest and
most approved appliances. The apart-
monts occupied by Mr. Meudo and his
family are on thu second floor. Tho
whole concern throughout is constructed and finished in n way most creditable lo tho taste and enterprise of the
proprietor who may with prido reflect
that hu has one of tho most comfortable aud complete establishments of
tho kind in British Columbia. Tho
cost was nearly $5,000. As an artist

The Penitentiary.
Kef erring to the lack of mom ut tbe
provincial penitentiary the other day,
we mentioned Point Orey as a more
favorable site for such nu institution
thnn tho present one. Some of our
citizens object to this because, they
suy, Point Grey is not a suitable place,
and because the removal of the penitentiary would be a loss to the city.
Iu discussing the subject we confess
we did so not from a local point of
view, but purely from a national standpoint nnd in the interest of the institution itself. Its removal undoubtedly
might bo injurious to this city, although every onu must admit thut the
present site is entirety unsuitable. Wu
have uo particular wish to see it taken
to Point Grey, That place wos suggested to us by both the warden and
deputy-warden as possessing Bpecial
advantages, and we did not: stop to
consider thu effect n removal might
have upon the city. The Columbian
is not a local organ, but concerns itself
with thu interests uf the wholo provinco and of the Dominion. Wo should
bu quite us well pleased, and bettor, if
tho penitentiary, instead of being removed to Point Grey, wore located
near this city. Thoro is much waste
land within a mile or two of Sapperton
which could bu purchased ut a resou-
able figure, and which, for agricultural
purposes, would probably bo quite
superior to Point Grey.   The principal
Sot nt. is that the penitent iary cannot
0 carried on successfully where it is:
tbe question of location is open to discussion. It may be said without fear
of coiitradioton that it would be diflicult to find u place more centrally
situated than New Westminster. This
oity is easy of access from any part of
Vancouver Island, and stands connected (or will in n very short time) with
tbe two great avenues of communication with tho interior—tho river and
thu railway. This is a fact which
should not be lost sight of by either
the federal or the provincial government. .
The Chinese commission.
After tho examination of Mr. Homer
on Tuesday afternoon, Mr. W. N. Bolo,
police magistrate, was examined. From
his personal observation, he said, he
firmly believed thut then existed
among the Chineso in this country a
secret tribunal through which Chinese
criminals were disposed of. This tri*
bunal was independent of our laws,
and inflicted suoh punishment us it
thought fit; and in sumo cases ho be*
Moved the punishment had been death.
Murders had been committed in the
community through the findings of this
secret tribunal, and as yet the government had done nothing to prevent or
punish the perpetrators uf this crimo
against our laws and country. He wus
of opinion that secret laws existed
among the Indians which were practised ; but these wore uot so noticeable,
as they had uot taken tho samo permanent shape us those of tho Chineso,
nnd were not always enforced. As a
general thing tho Chinese were a peaceable, sober aud industrious people, but
some of thom wero engaged iu a traffio
which wus a broad channel leading to
one of our greatest social evils, that of
furnishing the Indians with liquor. In
proof of this ho mentioned that sinco
the 13th March, 1883, he had convicted 280 Ohinamen, und a majority of
these convictions were for selling liquor
to Indians, and the balance principally
for petty larceny. During the same
period he had convicted 700 othen,
principally Indians, for similar offences.
The whites who had come before him
were chiefly of a very objectionable
class, most of them being tramps and
railroad men, persons who ue uneducated and live from hand to mouth.
A great many of these cases were for
vagrancy. During his experience in
dealing with Chinese cases he had
learned that a Chinaman's word or testimony was utterly unreliable. Out of
47 Chinese witnesses in a cuse which
came before hiin, he had no hesitation
in saying that 45 committed perjury.
Judge Gray asked Mr, Bole which side
of the case ho was on, to whioh he replied that he was on the bench. Continuing, he said their verbal testimony
they would deny, and their written
testimony they would nut accept when
it was produced against them, putting
forward the plea that tho interpreter
had misunderstood their meaning. He
believed 99 out of every 100 Ohinamen
were unworthy of belief; their oath
wns not binding. Nearly all our Chinese population are staves, controlled
by Chinese bosses who hold them iu
bondage fur a term of years and keep
them in total ignorance of the liberties
und privileges they might enjoy under
our free govornment if they but knew
it, A new aiul alarming feature of tho
Chineso evil wns at present developing
ittelf, whioh is destitution, Quito recently 7 Chinamen, in n starving condition presented themselves to the city
fur tho necessaries of life, by committing small petty offences, which compelled the oily to send them to prison.
Ho believed iho government should
firmly insist upon the Ohinese providing for their own paupers. Each China*
man should be required to pay n por
capitn tax to the govornment. Very
little benefit is derived from them ns
oitizens. Their wagon and the results
of their undertakings, except the small
amount necessary to their existence,
were sent out of the country. They
are unfit for associates. Loathsome
and leprous diseases exist among them
which makes them dangerous to tho
community. When Mr, Bole concluded his statement, Hon. Mr. Chupleau
complimented him rery highly upon
the clear, pointed manner in which it
hud boen givon, and its grent importance with respect to the investigation.
Mr. Jas. A. Laidlaw was next examined. He said he was proprietor of
11 cannery, nnd employed from 250 to
450 men iu bis business, most of whom
wero Chiuose. Hu hud beun engaged
in tho industry for 7 yeirs, and liis
annual pay rJl two years ago amounted to 9120,000 a yoar. There wore 13
other canning establishments in this
district which expended from 980,000
to $120,000 each pur annum in connection with operating tho establishments. This enormous expenditure of
capital in labor would nut have been
undertaken without Chineso labor.
Onu of thu peculiar features of the
fishing industry wu that it afforded
employment only about two months it)
iho year. In these two mouths a Chinaman could make enough to keep hiin
through the other ten months, and lay
aside a sinking fund beside, White
laborers commanded frum 940 to 9100
por month during the fishing season,
but this wiw not enough to support
them in idleness during the rest of the
year. Thojfnrmers could not afford to
pay thu wages demanded by white 1
men; hence Ohinese labor wns absolutely necessary, Ho did uot think
the resources of the country were
varied enough or great enough to re-,
quire more white laborers thnn we now
had. He was of opinion tbat at the
present time there wero enough Chinamen in tho country to supply the demand for thut kind of labor. Ou being
nsked the question, "Do you think the
country, generally speaking, is mure
prosperous through Chinese labor, and
that Chinamen compare favorably with
the immigrant from other nations us
desirable, peaceable, law-abiding citizens?" Mr. Laidlaw said be would
like some time to consider bis answor,
and wuuld givo it in writing. He suid
hia experience justified him in stating
that, as helpers, no cluss of workmen
wero mure easily managed and controlled than the Chinamen. It would
bu leas trouble to manage 300 Chinamen than 30 white men, nnd they
would perform thoir duties much more
faithfully. Ue considered the Chinese,
acting in tho capacity of servants, or
as citizens, generally speaking, us
moral 111 their habits und as freo from
vice us any other class of citizens. It
was u fact thnt they were not as liberal
as other people, and he was aware of
tlieir luck of interest in providing for
their destitute and curing for thoir
siok. In this respect they were heathenish und barburoUB.
Mr. D. Clisholm, on being invited
to givo hb opinion, said he had been
u workingnmn for a great number of
years, and could heartily endorse the
stand taken by the workingmen of
British Columbia nguinit Chinese labor. He very deeply sympathized with
them in their deplorable condition in
huving to compete with Mongolian
serfs. He could nut understand why
the Moral government should send n
commission here to ascertain the facts
of the Chineso question. Our representatives had been sent to Ottawa
fully instructed and equipped with the
proper authority to place before parliament the true condition of affairs in
this province, and to intercede on our
behalf. He thought we had just
grounds of complaint because the Ottawa government had ignored the
wishes of tho people of British Columbia ns expressed through our representatives at Ottawa.
Hon. Mr. Chupleau suid ho had grent
respect for the opinion of Mr. Chis-
hobn, but he could not Bee how the
government bud ignored the people or
slighted their representatives, The
federal government had appointed this
commission to proceed here nnd carefully investigate the extent of the evil
complained of, so that, before restricting the immigration's peoplo a thorough
knowledge of their effect on this country might bo obtained. To prohibit
the immigration of any nation's subjects to the shores of a civilized country was a serious mutter, and before
committing itself to such an act the
government wished to bo very sure of
its ground. The federal government
feels a deep interest in the welfare of
the people of British Columbia, and
will take prompt measures to remove
any evils that may exist. Tho first
commissioner requested that a eopy of
the evidence givon might be forwarded
to Ottawa, and the commission then
ndjourned tu Nanaimo.

(From Ilie Viotoria Times.)
A visit to this point of interest
which hus rt^tjptly attracted so much
attention nera, ns elsewhere, and has
caused some considerable discussion,
too, regarding its chances and merits
as u railroad terminus, discloses this
fact: It is an entirely different kind of
place from whnt people havo been led
to suppose it to be from mere hearsay.
Whether it should, may, or mny not
become the final terminal point, forms
no part of thu writer's intention to
show. On approaching it, however,
from New Westminster, one cannot
but be gratified at the whole scene that
is presented. Instead of abrupt mountains descending with considorablo
steepness to the water's edge, the hills
descend with a long, easy grade. The
impression that there is a scarcity of
land for terminal purposes, or for
building a large city upon, soon disappears after taking a survey of the
thousands of acres tliat lie ready to be
made available for either uso. Besides
there being ample room for side tracks,
depots, sheds, etc., etc., thero is
enough lund 011 the gentle slopes on
which to build a city ns large nn Liverpool nnd Glasgow together, and thousands of acres besides cun bo utilized
for placing a Manchester nnd it Paisley
by the side of them. Instead of n
jumping of]' point, largo ureas can be
seen, which have onlyn good drainage
slope of not over from one tu oiio-ntnl-
a half feet tu the ono hundred. While
it is not intended to draw invidious
comparisons, yet, doubtless, ma-iy
others are of tho opinion tho writer entertained before visiting this poiut. It
really presents facilities for terminal
purposes, that seem hard to gtdiwtiy,
with ample ruum for shipping, and
plenty uf deep water: thore is eertninty
abundance of land in every direction
and for every purpose. Besides tho
high and dry laud ou "terra lirmu,"
thore are 400 ucres of flats, over which
thu tide ebbs and flows, that anil he
utilized, or sold, in time fur $10,001*.-
000 or 812,000,000. The townsito can
easily bo drained, und there is au
abundance of clear, cold water lo bo
found, both being great advantages to
a new community. Either side of the
harbor can bu reached without a
bridge or u ferry, and thu location h is
ail those natural advantages for which
other leading railways havu spent millions of dollars iu making sanitariums,
places of resort for tourists and those
111 search of health. Here the scenery
iH very beautiful, the climate is balmy,
mild und salubrious, and then- is tine
silt water bathing, which can here be
enjoyed to its fullest extent. Taking
it all in all, this point is admirably
adapted for tho terminus of a grent
railway system, nud for thu situ of a
largo nnd important mercantile metropolis. There are sevoral good hotels,
prominent, among which is thu Caledonia, which haa a tine livery stable
attached, J. T. Scott, manager. The
Elgin House is another good Ttotel, W.
Ins'ley, proprietor, nnd there are some
others. Business of different kinds is
fairly represented, and there are sevoral new nouses in course of construction, Armstrong & Burr have a saw
mill, with n capacity of 15,000 feut
daily, and J. B. Tiffin has u shingle
mill, huving n capacity of 35,000 to
40,000 per day.

EniTOk Colombian-,—I observe that
the Guardian's "Censor" (pity censorship did not, like charity, begin at
home!) makes a few assertions in reply
to my letter. He says I am a member
of Thk Columbian staff. Bad guess,
Mr. Censor. He says the examiners are
"irresponsible" because they are ap*
pointed by the government. What system would he substitute? Should the
examiners appoint themselves? or would
"Censor" like to appoint them? A pretty
kettle of fish wc should have then! He
says the school boards throughout the
province work at the dictation of the
government. This, as I happen to know,
is a gross libel ou a number of independent men, and I suspect it is a libel upon
the government also—else the government have mighty little to do. He also
usscrts or insinuates that my grammar is
faulty. Well, perhaps it is. I never

NEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WMtD.
O-iTAWA, Aug. 8.—-Pr, Sweetland defends the interview your correspondent
liad with him regarding the Northwest
in the Citizen this morning. He Bays
"no loyal Canadian can pass over the
desert from Moose Jaw and Calgary,
where for a distance of about SOO miles
not a house or tree is to be seen, without rcgrettiug the hasty policy of railroad building. That is admitted by
every disinterested man you meet as
being detrimental to the best interests
of tho country. All uow admit that-had
the road been built north from Winnipeg, and slowly, it would have developed
and settled a better tract of country.
I have no desire to attack the policy of
the Canadian Pacific Hallway in forcing
through the road nortii of Lake Superior
iu tho way they are doing. Not that I
lack hi material, but I am satisfied tliat
before long some one more able will ex.
pose tho gigantic mistake that is being
made for trying to build some 500 miles

inyUMm i REMARKABLE STORY.
(Continued.)
"Tho queen, of course, would nevor
want to come," aaid Mm. John, who
wus very literal; "but Catherine Ver-
m.n! she is more than the queen; the
house belongs to her, and the furniture, and everything. It is all warmed
with hot-water pines, and servants
kept, and every comfort. I shouldn't
wonder if she turned us out after what
you have done."
"If she docs, mother, I will be your
servant. I will keep good fires and
keep you worm, never fear,1' cried
Hester, paling and reddening in panic,
yet courage.
"Good fires!" said Mrs. John; "do
you think fires cau be got for nothing ?
and we havo so little money." She
looked very palo and worn, supported
among her pillows in the early morning light, so penetrating and so clear;
and at this Bhe began to cry. "Oh,
why was I so foolish as to leavo you to
mismanage everything 1 I might have
known! Whatever Catherine Vernon
wanted, you ought to have let her have
it. She can turn us out in a moment
if ahe pleases, and ahe will never forgive you, never. And just whon we
were going to be so comfortable!" the
poor woman cried.
"Don't cry, don't cry, mamma. You
know I always said I should give lesions. We will get two nice little
rooms somewhere, much nicer than
theae. If she is such a hard woman, I
don't want to be obliged to her. Oh,
mother, mother, don't cry! I can take
care of you."
"Oh, hold your tonge, hold your
tongue, child! what do you know about
it i* Let me get up. I must go to hur
at once and tell her you nro only a
child andconstantlydpingaillythingB."
This to Hester, who was so conscious
of being her mother's prop and support, but her real guide in life. She
waa so utterly aghast that she did not
know how to reply.
"Put me out my beat crape," aaid
hpr mother. "Catherine will liko to
see that even in a foreign place, where
it is so diflicult to gut thing:} as one
ought, proper reaped waa paid. Everybody said that sho meant to marry
your poor papa when she was young;
but he saw me—Oh, dear, dear, when
I think of all tliat has happened since
then—that she nevor has liked mc. I
tliink that was quite natural; and now
that you have gone and made everything worse—Put mo out my best dress
with tho crape."
"It is only fivo o'clock,"said Heater,
half penitent, half irritated, "there is
nobody up. The people in England
must be very lazy in the morning.
Does no one go to early mass ?"
"Five o'clock!" said Mra. John,
fretfully. "I think you must bo going
out of your senses, Hester. Is that nn
hour to wake me, when I had not had
my first sleep out 1 Draw down the
blinds and close the shutters, and let
me get a proper rest. And for good-
nets' sake," she cried, raising her head
before she settled down comfortably
among tho pillows, "for goodness'
sake! don't go about talking of early
mass here."
Hester did as her mother ordered,
but with an impatient heart. It was
bitter to have thus put into the hands
of the poor lady who was her kingdom,
and for whom Bhe hnd legislated for
years, the means of ahaking off her
•way—a sway which Hester was firmly
persuaded was for her good. John
Vernon had not been much of a guide
toy either mother or child. Ho had
not cared very much about them. His
wifo'a monotonous feebleneBB, whicli
might have been well enough in tho
tranquility of the luxurious sheltered
life at home to which she'was born,
was, nothing but tiresome in circumstances where nn energetic woman
might have been of some use; and hiB
daughter was a child he didn't understand—a child, a chit, who ventured
to look disapproval at him, to his indignation and wonder. What you ure
used to from your birth docs not affect
you muoh, and Hester had not suffered
any heartache from her father's neglect. She accepted it an the order of
nature, but the reault had been that
from her earliest consciousness, almost,
Bhe had taken upon herself the charge
of her mother; and to be thus threatened with deposition, and criticised by
lier helpless aubject, appalled her. So
ootivu and young as she was, and full
of superfluous strength, it was impossible for her to return to her pillow as
her mother had done. When she had
closed the shutters and drawn the curtains, she Btole softly out on tiptoe
down the old oak staircase, which
creaked ut every footfall. In the glory
of the early morning the house was
not dark. In rooms which the sun had
reached the black old wainscot was glimmering, full of reflections, and all tho
world out of doors lay resplendent in
that early gladness. Hester had heard
all her life, from many a discontented
mouth, of the gloomy skies and dark
days of England, of a climate alwaya
obscured with fog, and a sky whoro
there was no blue. Accordingly, it
was with a kind of indignant ecBtacy
that she stepped out into the intense
delicious radiance, bo soft and fresh,
yet so all-powerful. The birds had got
their early morning twittoriugB ov.tr,
and wero in full outburst of song. Tho
flowers were all in intensest dewy
bloom, and everything taking the good
of that sweet prime of the morning in
which they bloomed and sang for thom-
selves, and not officially on behalf of
tho world. The girl forgot her vexation as she oame out to the incense*
breathing garden, to tho trees, uo
longer standing out black upon the
aunset, but in ull their sweet natural
variations of color, basking in the
- morning light. Tho pond even, that
had looked so black, was like a basin
of pure gold, rimmed with rich browns
ana greens. She opened the gate and
looked out upon tho road, which waa
all silent, not <\ shadow upon it, swept
by the broad early blaze of the morn*
ing sun. Not a sound except the
ononis of the birds, the crackle of the
furze bushes in the itilnesi, the hum
of insects. She bad all the world to
heraelf, as the poet had on that immortal morning when the house i of
quiet London all Iny asleep, and the
Thames flowed onward at his own
aweet will. Standing apart from the
road, among its shrubberies, was the
Orange, with its ted gables and ita eye.
lids closed; furthor off the light rebounded softly from the roofs of the
town, and behind the town, revealed
in partial shadow, rose the white distant front of tho houso in which her
mothor had told Hester her early married life had been passed* She had
it all to herself, nobody to disturb or
interrupt. And what in human form
could nave given a more complete impersonation of the morning than this
girl, fresh, fair, and strong, with auoh
a world of latent possibilities in her?
The cloud of last night's perversity
blew away. Sho met the eye of the
day with a gaze na open and ni confi
dent. Neither Nature nor Hester had
any fear. She was like her namesake
in the poem, whom tho "gentle-hearted Charles," belored of all men, could
not, though ahe was dead, give up the
expectation of meeting ub heretofore,
"somo summer morning."
"When from thy cheerful eyes a ray
Had struck a bliss upon the day,
A bliss that would not go away,
A Bweet forewarning."
And this glorified world, this land
of light and dews, this quiet sweetness
and silence and ecstatic life, was tho
dull England of which all the shabby
exiles spoke with scorn! Heater felt a
delighful indignation flood her soul.
She went out all by herself with a littlo
uwo, and walked round the common,
whioh was all agleam with blobs of
moisture Binning like diamonds in the
sun:
"A springy motion in her gait,
A rising atop did indicate
Of pride and joy no common rate
That Hushed her spirit.
"I know uot by what name beside
I shall call it; if 'twas not prido,
It was a joy to that allied
She did inherit."
Hester was n great deal too young
for a heroine; but, as it changes, there
could not be a better portrait of her
thau that of Lamb's "sprightly neighbor." She went out with that springing motion, stepping on air, with the
pnde of life and youth and conscious
energy in, eyerv v^in. A certain youthful contempt tor the inferior beings
who lay stupid behind those closed
shutters, losing all thia bloom and
glory, waB in her heart. She was very
black in the midst of the bright landscape, in her mourning frock, with a
white kerchief tied round her throat
like a French girl, but her curly locks
shining, like everything else, in the
sun. She had not yet learned that she
had a complexion to caro for; besi^ea,
the sun oould do nothing to the creamy
whito of her tint. Perhaps she was
not very sensitive, not thin-skinned at
ill, either in body or soul.
Now it happened, curiously enough,,
that as Hester passed tho gate of (jho
Orange, at which she gazed very
anxiously, with a half-formed intention
of making her way in, in face of every
obstacle, and making hor peace with
Cousin Catherine — a project which
only the early hour prevented her from
carrying out—the said gate opened
Softly und a man appeared. Hester
was more startled than she could ox-
plain to herself. Why ahould she be
startled i It was not bo early now—six
o'clock or later. He was a young man
of middle height, with a very dark
beard and bright eyes. Hester felt
that he was somewhat unsuitable to
the scene, not English, in her opinion
—Englishmen had fair, rosy complexions, bluo eyes—they were nil blonds:
now, this man looked like those to
whom she was accustomed. Was he,
she wondered, going to early mass?
lie had a portfolio in Iub hand, a small
hox strapped to his shoulders. The
first Englishman she had seen; what
was he going to do ? What-ho did firat
waa to look at her with considerable
curiosity. She had hastily put on her
hat on seeing him, that there might bo
Ao impropriety in her appearance, an
action whioh put out, so to speak, one
of the lights in the landscape, for her
hair was shining almost ns brightly as
the blobs of dew. He crossed tlie road
to the common, and then ho paused a
moment on the edge of it and looked
at her again.
"I wofldor if you are my little
cousin 1" he said.
It wu on Hester's lips to protest
that ahe was not little at all, but quite
as tall on he waB, but she waived this
point, on second thoughts.
"Are you a Vernon—toot" she said.
"Yes, I am a Vernon—too, Edward
at your service. I am ^lad to Bee you
keep such early hours,"
"Why?" ahe asked, but did not wait
for any reply. "What are you going
to do ?"
"I am going," ho aaid, "out upon
the common to look for a rare flower
that grows hero, only I have nover
been ablo to find it. WiU you como
and help me T
"A flower!" said Hester, confounded. "Do Englishmen look for flowers?"
"Englishmen as well u others—
when they happen to be botanists.
Docs that Burpriso you I I am obliged
to get up enrly, for I have no time in
the day,"
"What do you do in the dny ?" the
girl asked.
"I am at tho bank. Havo you never
heard of Vernon's Hank > tho business
from whioh we all tako our importance
here. The Vernon's are great or they
are small, don't you know? according
to their connection with the bank."
"Thon you are one of the great
ones," said Heater, with decision.
"Do any of thoVernons live in that
great white house—that one, do you
seo?—on the othor aide of the rod
roofa ?"
'The White House ? Oh, yes, Harry
lives there, another cousin, and hia
sister."
"Aro they in the bank, too?"
"Harry is; he and I do the work be*
tween ub. Ladies in thia country have
nothing to do with business—by the
way, I am forgetting Aunt Catherine."
"That is a pity," said Hob ter, not
noticing his exclamation. "Then I
suppose my fathor must have had
something to do with it; for, do you
know, though wo aro poor now, ho
onco lived there ?"
"Yes, I know."
"Then why did he go awny V nsked
Hester, musingly; "thnt is what I
ahould like to find out. Do you know
Cousin Catherine? you must, if yuu
livo in her house.''
1 call hor Aunt Catherine," said
tho young man.
"Why? Is Bhe your Aunt? And I
call her cousin; but she cannot bo my
cousin—she is ao much older. Was
she angry—do you know—lost night?
I did not know who she wns—and I
was rudo."
Ho laughed, and she, after a doubt*
ful glance, laughed too.
"Oh, vcb, I am afraid I did not
know who she was—that she was
Cousin Catherine; but then, whu is
Cousin Catherine? I had nover seen
her before. Mother thinks she will bo
vory angry. Could I lot her como in
and disturb my mothor after she was
in bed? Mother thinks she will not let
us stay."
"Should you bo sorry to go?"
Heater cast a long look all round
from east to west, taking in the breadth
of the common, glistening in the morning dew, the dark roofs of the Heronry
against the trees, the glittering vanes
and windows of the town on the other
side.
"It ib very pretty," she said, with a
littlo sigh. "And to think what they
■ay of England! They say it is always fog and the sun never shines.
How can poople tell such lies? We
ihould not go; we should take some
small rooms in the town, and I would
teach."
