Huron, Cal., May 20.—Newt reached this place last night that the bodies
of three men were found two days ago

The Poller of Disallowance,
Reports from*bttawli are to tie
effect that Sir Hector langevin hat
distinctly tnd emphatically an
nounoed that the policy ot disallowing sll railway charters running
contrary to the 0,ER monopoly
clause it to be maintained. This
will be learned with exceeding regret by til true friendi of the country lying weit of Ontario, We
have held that there is no law or
agreement which oompelt the government to pursue thit polioy in to
far; o_ Britiah Colnmbia and Mini-
tphi are con'cenied, snd to this po
aitipii we still adhere. The declaration of Sir Hector Langevin now
il A flat contradiction of ..he declaration made in the house by Sir
Charles Tupper in 1884, when he
said that "when the line is constructed north of lake Superior the
government feel it will not be incumbent upon them to preserve the
position they have hitherto felt
bound to preserve, that of refuting
to consent to the construction of
lines within the province of Manitoba connecting with the American
railways to the south." It has alwaya seemed to ui inexplicable why
the managers of the C. P. R. should
object to tho construction ot the
Westminster Southern Railway,
The syndicate, as every one knows,
hat the ihortest road across the continent, and it is so remarkably free
from heavy debts and many other
enoumberancei that it can carry
freight more economically than any
competing road. At the present moment it il reaching out for the trade
of this coast, and gets a large traffic
even from San Trancisoo. It is not
reasonable to suppose that railway
connection between Washington
Territory and the 0. P. R tt this
oity would take trade away from the
Canadian road, but, on the contrary,
it. it quite certain (hat the result of
such a connection would be to bring
American trade thit way. The
ground upon which the government
W the syndicate may ask for a continuance of the polioy of disallowance elsewhere certainly does not

The Tyrannror Faction.
Nothing could have- been more
impolitic than the outrageous conduct of the Toronto Orangemen on
the occasion of William O'Brien's
late visit to that oity. Their purpose evidently was to protest against
thi mission of the Iriih agitator,
sad to bring him and it into public
disfavor; but their intemperate and
brutal conduct covered their own
heads with everlasting disgrace and
raited the objeot of their hate to'
the dignity of a hero and a martyr.
We have no sympathy with Mr.
O'Brien's mission to Canada. While
sympathising with those Irishmen
w_k> are honestly snd honorably
straggling to deliver their oountry
from the evils under whioh it hts
so long been suffering, vre regard the
visit of Mr. O'Brien as ill-advised
and unjustifiable. But Canada is a
fret oountry, and Mr. O'Brien has
a right to expect the fullest protec
tion of Canadian law so long as lie
ktept within legal bounds. He was
warned both by Archbishop Lynch
and Mayor Howland that he ought
not to attempt to speak in Toronto,
but although he took the risk of disregarding I tint advice, there was
nothing. in his conduot which justified the Withdrawal of official pro
taction, the men who assailed liim
won cowards, became they made a
cowardly assault upon an unprotected man; and they were murderers
at heart, because if they had dared
it it evident they would hsve taken
the life of their victim. ' Their fero-
ciooi attack, judging from the Ian
guage by wbloh it wat accompanied,
wat inspired by religious bigotry
snd hate, O'Brien it a Roman
Catholic and a Nationalist, while
hit ssuilanti were Orangemen; but
in thit instance at lout the Orange
bigots showed themselves opposed
to freedom tnd the champions of
outrage. " Wh hope Mr. O'Brien will

The inttotion ol the editon of thii
column ii to publish sound temperance literature; tnd their object is,
the cultivation of sound temperance
untimenl, with the -lew of ultimately bringing to bur on the liquor
trafflo tnd ita tnin of attendant
evila the irruistible force of a rightly
Informed and intelligent public opinion. Wt 'hold it to be plainly true
that were the consciences and minds
ol the people aroused and enlightened
on thit quutiun as they should bo,
ind, we trust, will be speedily, the
"better senso of most" would place
the liquor trafflo where it belongs—
among the things which tbe law of the
Imd condemn!! and it ahall be our
•ndeavor to tsiist in bringing about a
consummation ao" devoutly to be
wished." While the scissors and the
putepot will be used pretty freely in
culling the beat current uttennoeaand
illustrations on this important aubject,
wt shsll, whenever opportunity offers
or ooouion demands, discu-i the question of prtotical temperanoe reform
from t loot! itindpoint. Thit lome-
thing, howover humble, requires to
be undertaken in tht direction we
have here outlined, will be admitted
by all honest observers. It has been
uid, with too much truth, we fear,
that Britiah Oolumbia is fully fifty
yun behind advanced temperance
itntiment, in her practice at least.
The disgraceful retrogade legislation
perpetrated by our local assembly during tbe sesiion recently dosed constitute! t pretty formidable straw to
show whioh wsy the wind blows on
thii question in the province at large.
Take another notable instance aa indicating the general moral—or rather
immoral—'tone of that local body
which ia supposed to be responsible
tnd representative, md the guardian
and oonaerver of the publia interests,—
thtt of the recent expression Of our
legislature on Sabbath observance.
Tht publio ia already familiar with the
detail! of the two euu whioh we havo
cited, tnd further explanation will be
unnecessary. With tht exception ol i
very small minority, tbe house waa
unanimous in ita double infamy; and
thtt, too, in the face of the fact that
the friendi ol temperance and morality had good reason lo expect tbat
•ome substantial reforms would have
been effected during the recent legis*
lathe senion—-instead ol the inexcusable and gratuitous relapse which hu
taken place. At the late general
election for the commons we returned
tu npresenl this district at Ottawa a
well-known and prominent liquor
dealer, md by a large majority, too.
There must be something very "rotten is tht state of Denmark" when
auoh things can be. No consideration
or multiplication ol considerations
should nnder auch results possible,
tnd they would not be possible with
tn enlightened public conscience md
understanding Then, again, the restriction! imposed upon the liquor
traffic by our cities are disgracefully
inadequate. Besides plying their nefarious trade all night, if they wish,
they ire illowed to openly desecrate
the Sabbath, while morally legitimate
busineu houses are very properly
closed out ol respect to the day. What
the fato of the numerously signed petition recently presented to our oity
counoil, praying definite action on
thia matter, will be, remains to be
utn. A genenl glance over the field,
auch u wt hive endeavored to uive in
the .foregoing lines, appears to us to
disclose the hot that, while we may bo
making tome little progress in tern*
permce untiment in this province
(whioh may be safely admitted), we
an atill very far behind iu the practice of our theories, and aome have
very vague theories even. We would
respectfully and earneatly request pro*
foiled temperance people to wake up
on thii quution—to find out where
they itand—what their principles
really in—tnd why they hold these
prinoiplu. Whin they hive settled
thue questions, we would uk them to
ut on til occasions consistently with
their conclusions—to tpaak aa they
think—to Mt is they profeas—to vote
u they pny—in other words (tc burrow a forcible expresaion from Sam
Jones), to "quit their meanness."

QtSTiBMB..—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending Slat March, 1887,
we beg to itate that it will be an utter
impossibility to run the hospital Ine ol
debt on the grant just voted by the government for tho ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has beeu attentive in hb
dutlts md report! a large increase in the
number of patient! admitted during the
year, shewing also that we have reoeived
patients from all parti ol the province.
There are a number of Incurables lu
this hospital, some of whom were brought
from Victoria hospital yean ago. The
sum of $1,000 a year hu been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, the lost
few years. The Board think, therefore,
that some of these Incurables should be
shipped back to Viotoria.
A great number of Improvements have
been made .during the 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*
The hospital haa been filled to Its
utmost capacity during the whole year.
The Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous substrlptions, lists of which
are annexed, md without whieh it would
have been found Impossible to have kept
the Institution free of debt; alao the con*
collections, md the following ladies and
gentlomen for old olothes. linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdamca C. T. Woodl, C.

The surgeon's report Is appended hereto, md gives full details of the work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost per day for each resident patient in the hospital, which Includes the disbursements on out-door
patients, is 67 cents.

For Year Ending 81st Mabch, 1887.
To the Members 0/ the Board of Directort t
GENTLEMEN.-I havo the honor to
herewith present the report on this Hospital lor the year ending 81st March, 1887:

1 dropsy, 5 dys; tolal, 14.
Although the number of deaths Is large
the short number of days lu tbe Hospital
of a large proportion of them shows that
tbey came ln (n a hopeless condition.
Tbe places where the Indoor patients
were received from are as follows:

Tbe number of Incurables now in the
Hospital Is twelve [121. This large number requiring to be taken care of from
year to year random It Impossible to make
a number of desirable Improvements In
the building, Owing to the limited Supply
of funds, I bave Introduced thetableot
residences to show the people of TultlSh
Columbia that tbey all ought to take an
Interest In helping ou this Institution,
which Is Increasing In usefulness every
year, aa may be Men by comparing the
number of Indoor patients of the previous
vcar -seventy-live i7S)-wlth this year-
one hundred and three (1081.
We still require a lot of draining to be
done about and from tbe building. The
floors nnd walls have been Improved and
the new wash-room Is a great addition to
tbe comfort ol the place.
I have great pleasure In thanking a
number of friends of the Hospital for present of clothes, old.llnen, pictures, books
nnd papers. Again I hnve to thank the
steward, Hr. Charles Digby, for Ws constant attention to the cleanliness af the
building and his kindness nnd attention
to tho wants of tbe sick end his readiness
In carrying out all my directions. Before
dosing this report I must offer my sincere
thanks to the medical gentlemen who so
kindly offered their assistance to myself
whenever required during the past year.
I nm Yours Faithfully,
Surgeon R. 0. H.
In presenting the accounts for the past
Sear, tho Treasurer heps to call attention
> the fact that the outlay has been rigidly
scrutinised, In which he hM been ably
assisted by the Steward, Mr. Digby. There
seems little prospect ol my reduction of
expenditure. You will notioe tbat the
subscriptions have heen liberal md have
been a great assistance In keeping the
Institution free of debt. It Is to be regretted that the Government hove reduced
tho grunt to the Hospital from .MOO to IH,-

The Conncil Meeting.

Ith aane,
A. speoial meeting of the counoil waa' held last ovening in
the Hyack Hall to consider the
scheme of E. S. Scoullar and associates
to supply the city with water. There
were present his worship Mayor Dickinson, in the chair, and a full board of
councillors. Tho mayor explained the
object of the meeting, when it was
proposed that the council go into committee on the report of the wator works
Coun. Shiles was called to the chair.
Coun. Curtis thought the report of
the oommittee rather meagre in details
snd asked if the committee had further
information on the subject
Ooun, Jaques thought the price of
the hydrants rather expensive.
Conn. Duncan stated that he
had considered the scheme and
thought it excellent. It was not neces-
sary that the source of supply should
be known. The company wire willing
to givo bonds that ths wator would be
pure spring water. The rates were
exceedingly low and they could buy
out the oompany ut tho end of 10 years,
providing the water-works were then a
profitable concern.
Mayor Dickinson thought the granting of tbe franchise should be by popular vote. The great drawback to the
scheme wna its unknown source.
Mr. Stamford, who waa present, ou
behalf of the company, suid they were
not at liberty to divulge the source of
tho water, as the Coquitlam Co., a
powerful rival, might throw obstacles
in their way.
Mr. Hill, O.K., on behalf of the
Coquitlam Co., said that the condition
of the committee's report waa very
vacua and indefinite.
Some oitizens expressed themselves
on the subject and it waa finally resolved that the matter be laid over until
the 7th June, when it is expected a
proposal will be tendered by the Cu-
quitlam Co. as well.

In'conclading hit budget speech, Sir
Oharlet Tupper said: "What I propose to oak the house to do to-dsy is
to take the duty off anthracite coal.
Tht moment that is done we shall
have Tut furnaces going st Cobourg,
Kingston, and Welter's Bay. (Cheers.)
You may oak what it thought of the
Ct Northwest. You hare in the
Ihwest sn unlimited supply of fuel
furnished by lignito dial. Wo have
not only 60,000 squ re miles of lignite
coal in the Northwest, but we have un
Big Island, in Lake Winnipeg, any
quantity of ore and of timber to otiiit
in tha manufacture of iron, and alio
on Texada blind, in Britiih ColumbU, whieh is thirty miles long and
five miles broad. I believe, air, that
at no distant day we will have in the
province of British Columhla an iron
industry built up that will compare
favorably with any other industry in
the country. (Oheen.) Our consumption is 250,000 tons of pig iron,
not Including Heel rails. Tu make
thit amount of pig iron would require
760,000 tont of iron ore, 120,000 tons
tont of limestone, and 760,000 tons of
oool, making a total of 026,000 tons.
The Iran industry will in fact lax the
coal industry of this country to its
fullest extent; snd I sm able to state
that although the making of intlir.-
cite coal free will take 8400.-
000 ptr year from our revenue, we
aw perfectly justified in doing so, because the development it will give to
this iron industry will be of greater
advantage than which would bo taken
away—(hear, hear.) Statistics .how
that just ss the proportion of iron has
increased, ao has the production of
coal. The adoption of this policy in
iron I estimate will give permanent
employment to an army of 20,000 men,
increasing the population by from 80,-
000 Ito 100.000 souls, and providing for
them a means of living. This is not
taking into account tho manufacture of
castings, cutlery, engines, steol rails,
etc. The government has given most
careful consideration to the charges in
the tariff, and the whole of the in-
created taxation will be tweptaway by
the resolution whioh makes anthracite
coal free. On iron we have adopted
two-thirds of the American tariff, and
shall raise the duty on pig Iron from
•2 to $4, but we do not propose tn increase the duty on sheet iron or hoop
iron. »

Depntj Blake Insane.
He  Is   Found  at  Chicago and
Dared For.
Special to the Columbian.
Obicaoo, May 21.—An old gray-
haired man, dressed in black and wearing a long moustache, was brought to
tho insane, department of the county
court yeBterday, having been found at
Union depot. He had just arrived on
tho train from tho west. In hia pocket
was found a letter of introduction to
Senator Dolph, of Oregon. The man
is believed to be L. Blake, former
deputy collector of customs st Port
O'Brien at Kingston.
He Is Mobbed by ihe Oraigemci
and Severely Wounded.
Kingston, May 21.—[Speoial dispatch.]—O'Brien arrived here at 2:30
yeBterday. In the same oar with him
were Lady Macdonald, Sir Leonard
Tilley, and E. Crow Baker, H. P. for
Victoria, B. O. O'Brien drove to the
Burnett house, where a large crowd
awaited him. O'Brien in opening
his remarks won st once the Ulster
Protestants who were listening, and
who form a large section of the population, when he asserted that Orange
farmers in the north pf Ireland wore
as muoh oppressed oaCatholic farmers,
and Lord Lansdowne was championing tho cause of those detpotio landlords who wero causing this oppression. " My mission is not to stir up
strife but to blend orange and green."
This sentiment at once won over the
descendsnts of Ulster farmers. They
cheered as heartily as anybody else.
He was again cheered when he said,
" We would so humiliate Lord Lansdowne in exposing his murderous policy in Ireland as to make orangemen
as well aa nationalists at least believe
there is only one Lord, he who rules
above the cedars and the stars." Juit
then a noise was heard outside the
hall, where a crowd had congregated.
Every cheer which went up inside the
hall was answered by a loud roar and
angry response from without. Tht
crowd outside had now swollen to immense proportions. The meeting wss
brought to an end by a few remarks
from the chairman, J, J. Behan, who
told the audience to go home peaceably. Then the people started out.
O'Brien's friends hurried him to the
frdnt. He stepped on the sidewalk,
wearing his usual tall hat The moment the orangemen on the opposite
■ide ol the slreet saw him they rsiied
savage yells, and, crying " There he
is," rushed sdrnss the strset. Cobblestones and bricks began lying like
hail. Women screamed and general
confusion reigned. "Ah, they're at
it,again," said O'Brien, in a tone of
mournful regret mora thau anger.
" Yes, yes," roared the mob, "there
he is." "Dreg him out here in the
street," "Kill him,'"Choke him,"
"Tear him asunder." They almost
burst through O'Brien's body guard.
which consisted of American specie!
correspondents snd local officers of
the national league. A man changed
hats with O'Brien, as that worn by
the latter furnished a target for the
mob*, In Wellington street another
shower of bricks greeted them. The
crowd then surged and two reporters
of the Associated Press were knocked
down. O'Brien disappeared in a house
and escaped by tbe bock way. For
about an hour the mob searched for
him, aod at last they louud him at the
house nt Peter Devlin, corner Washington and. William streets. Just
then Chief-Horsey, Mayor Corson and
six policemen appeared before the
house, and Horsey entered and offered
O'Brien an escort to his hotel. As
the door opened the mob tried to obtain admittance into the houte. A
•tone wot thrown and struck O'Brien
on the throat, and an orangeman
struck bim with a heavy olub on the
skull. The door was doted and
O'Brien wit smuggled out the back
way to his hotel. Oo the way to the
hotel Chief Horsey said: " I will Call
out the artillery to protect you if necessary." "You * will!" exclaimed
O'Brien sarcastically. "Idon't want
your protection. Now, you saw the
mob of demons outside that hall
thirsting for my blood while I wss addressing a peaceable meeting, and yon
didn't disperse them. Where wss
your artillery then! Sir Lansdowne
and Howland winked at their efforts
in Toronto, and nuw Lansdowne and
you wink at effort! to murder me
here. I am not going to give you
credit for the protenoe of hiving protected my life when yon could have If
you wished but didn't.'' At the Bur
nett Iiouse a crowd cellected around
O'Brien congratulating him oa his escape. He was scarcely able to stand
on his feet. His throst was full of
dust, his clothes bespattered. He
said, " We'll go thruugh to the end,
boys, yet." This incident will show
how the police acted: When Mr.
O'Brien staggered into nn alleyway
after being struck in the neck Willi* a
atone a policeman in the middle.of the
tlreet taid to u rioter, ", I law you,"
but ho nover attempted to arrest him,
and ho was allowed to join his friendi,
who shouted in triumph," He's a
gone dog," meaning O'Brien. O'Brien
and party start tomorrow morning
for Hamilton, where a meeting is to
lio held Monday. He will spend Bunday at Niagara Falls.
