current Events and Opinions.
Louis Riel hns been executed,
i'or tho first time sineo the hanging
of George William Gordon, the Jamaican patriot, a political offender
lias beeu put to death on British
soil. The execution of Gordon
ended the public career of all who
were in any way connected with it,
and consigned their names to ever-
lusting infamy. Tho execution of
Riel may do the same. It was
thought that all English speaking
people hud reached a plane of civilization where the execution of political offenders was forever a thing of
Ilie past. It seems that this was a
mistake. The ideas of government
entertained in at least one portion
of the English speaking world have
not progressed since tbe days when
Emmett died, since the head of
Monmouth rolled from the block,
' since Raleigh was offered as a sacrifice to a sovereign's hate, since'Sir
William Wallace paid tho penalty
of his glorious patriotism. Let
Riel now bo qunrtedi nnd let a portion of his ghastly remains bo exposed in each of tbe large citi s of
the Dominion, Tlie return to barbarism will thon be complete. Riel
has taken his place among the immortals. He was not worthy of
lasting fame, but it will be his. His
name will be a familiar one long
after Sir John Macdonald aud Gen.
Middleton will have been utterly
forgotten.*— Seattle Post. Our Seattle cotemporary is usually levelheaded, and we never suspected
that he was capable of writing such
nonsense as this,
The appointment of Sir Leonard
Tilley to tlio Hou tenant-governorship
of New Brunswick denotes the
withdrawal of a very estimable
public man from any but a titular
public life. In his departing ear
sound tbo general praises of his integrity, industry and devotion to
the public service, blended with
the death-knelt of his financial system, When a groat increase of
taxation results iu a deficit there
surely i.s no more to bo said. Tbo
only thing to be said, at least, is
that Sir Leonard Tilley is by no
means the only victim of that revival of protectionist fallacies which
is one of the most curious phenomena of our time. He is not by
any means the only statesman who
believes that it is possible to increase
the wealth of a country by taxation, and to make industry and
capital more productive by forcing
them out of their natural channels.
"Sir Leonard Tilley," says Sir
Thomas Fairer, "quotes certain figures, not undisputed, to show that
in consequence of what lie calls his
National Policy, Canadian manufactures have increased in the number of hands employed by {jO.000,
in wages paid annually by £3,000,-
000, and in annual value of products by .£16,00.0,000. He seems
to think tbat this is a pure addition
to the wealth of Canada, which
but for his policy would have gone
to foreigners or to Englishmen, instead of being, as it really is, a
compulsory and artificial transfer
of the labor and capital of Canadians from the industries in which
they can produce more to the industries iu which tbey cau produce
less, and a consequent diminution
of the aggregate wealth of Canada
and of employment for its labor—a
wrong not only to the Canadian con*
sumer, wbo has to pay more than he
would have to pay if he bought in
the open market, but a still greater
wrong to the Canadian laborer and
emigrant, wbo is prevented from
producing what would give him the
largest result and employ tbe largest
quantity of labor at tlio highest
wages." That anybody should fail
to see that labor and capital when
transferred to tho artificial line of
production must be diverted from
the natural line, and that the wealth
which tbey would have produced
and tho wages which they would
have drawn in the natural line
must be lost, seems almost incredible, But are there not people who
Btill beliovo in sinking funds, and
people who uro thoroughly convinced
that the wealth of tho world at once
would be enormously increased if
ull the governments would only issue
un unlimited number of bad promissory notes? Besides, in tho case of
protection, "secret history" comes
iu, and tho vision of the economist
is clouded by sinister interests aud
their heavy votes.—The Week
The British Columbian.
VOLUME 28
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. C„ WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1885.
NUMBER 43
Mr. Parnell lias already secured
the nomination of candidates of his
own selection for parliament in
more than half the Irish constituencies, They are simply his agents,
bound to vote as he shall direct, and
in the political situation of England
and Ireland he says that home rule
is already in sight.    Ho does not
openly state that home rule would
bo the final step to separation. It
is not clear, indeed, that he supposes separation to be desirable for
the welfare of Ireland. But be
knows that separation is the radical
Irish dream, and he knows that
the radical sentiment in a revolution is the most powerful, and that
he must swim with a current that
he can not stem. While, therefore,
ho does not declare for separation,
his demand for independence is
near enough to it to satisfy the
radicals. Mr. Parnell is probably
too sagacious not to see that with
the great improvement in the condition of Ireland, and in Eiitfiah
sentiment toward Ireland, the country could not possibly gain by separation from England. An admirable article in the Toronto Week
states the situation plainly. Ireland, it says, could not gain in
external security by being pluced
under the guns of a power made
her enemy by the act of separation,
and immeasurably superior in
strength. She would not gain in
internal harmony by the inevitable
struggle for ascendency of the Catholic majority with the Protestant
minority supported by English and
Scotch sympathy. She would not
gain in economy by being compelled
to maintain her own armaments
and establishments, instead of relying, as now, upon the English treasury. She would not gain in greatness by losing u share in un empire
of which the civil service in India
swarms with Irishmen. Indeed, in
the actual situation of the country,
and with the present English disposition, 'it is not easy to see in
what way it is supposed that separation would be an advantage. " The
same journal discusses with great
intelligence the policy of protection
for Ireland advanced by Mr, Parnell. How can sho be a manufacturing country without coal? It
was possible when water-power was
the dependence of manufactures.
But that time has passed, aud the
power is now steam. Her linen
trado is an export trade, and could
not be helped by protection. Ireland is an agricultural country,
England is the great market for her
produce, and should Ireland begin
a tariff war, this market would be
closed. England would retaliate
without compunction, and buy meat,
cheese,- and butter elsewhere, A
large -part of British goods is the
work of Irish hands. But if England began to retaliate, she would
not only exclude Irish produce, but
the producer also, and close her
ports to the immigration of Irish
labor. Moreover, separation would
place Irish education in the hands
of the clergy, and in an age of
scientific industry a priestly educated people would be at serious
disadvantage iu competing with a
country taught iu the spirit of the
age. These are all important if not
decisive points for every intelligent
Irishman to consider. He has only
to ask himself whether the most
furious dynamiter in the United
States would return to live in Ireland if Ireland should be made
totally independent of England.
No such man would return, not because he is established in the United States—for in a just sense he is
not established—but because of the
anarchy iu which Ireland would be
involved.—Harper's Weekly.

Gladstone to Parnell.
Edinburgh, Nov. 17.—Gladstone-
ill a speeali to-day, said: "I have already pointed out in niy former address tlmt it is very pussible that by an
overwhelming majority of her members the Irish nation might present
some demand. I expressed confidence,
however, that Ireland would never forget her duty to tho union and empire,
though she might present a demand
for a large change in management in
local ulliiiifl. Any demand of this character, I declared, ought to receive the
attention and respect of parliament.
Since that declaration Hr, Parnell lias
conveyed to me, through the confidential medium of the newspapera, a suggestion that I hnd botter frame a plan
foi' the local governmeht of Ireland, I
propose now to tertly to Mr. Parnell in
an equally confidential manner.
Doubtless you gentlemen will not mention it; perhaps my friends at the table
below (moaning reporters) won't mention it; but my reasons for not complying with Mr. PameD'a request are
that though Ireland wishes nnd do-
serves respectful and favorable attention, yut until the elections tho Irish
wishes aro constitutionally unknown.
I believe Mr. Parnell has taken me for
a person wanting in experience in pub-
lie life, or ono who has not profittcd
by experience. If he imagines me
rush enough to make myself a voluntary physician for the people of Ireland, instead of the authorized doctors
he sends to the house of commons, it
wuuld seriously damans the proposal
hatched iu my mind if the Irish constitutional question should arise. If a
propnsnl be made it cau only be effectively made by tho govornment', although the government is rather silent
ou the subject, and appears disinclined
tn use language calculated to render
loss easy their relations with the party
to whom they owe much through the
transactions of the last parliament. If
thu present government continues
every minister of the opposition will
reijuire to hear their views before expressing his own. Thus it is impossible to accede to Mr, Parnell's invitation." The remainder of the speech
wns devoted to a rapid review of (he
various leading topics, including foreign affairs aud disestablishment.

Some of tlio people of Ottawa
are proposing to take advantage of
Montreal's misfortune and steal-away
the ice palace and carnival. It is
very doubtful if a largo number of
visitors could be induced to go to
Montreal this season for the carnival. Small-pox is one of those
diseases that does not yield before
the severest frosts, and feur of its
contagion would undoubtedly threaten the success of the carnival at
Montreal. But Ottawa will not be
content with the carnival for one
season. If it goes to tlie capital
once, the people of the capital mean
to keep it there. They say that
misfortunes never come singly, and
in the wise of Montreal this seems
true enough.
.Sale of City Squares.
From an advertisement in another column it will be seen that the
city council has decided to otter for
sale on the 22nd proximo a number
of lots in the city squares and reserves. These properties are mostly
woll situated for residences nnd
other purposes, and the circumstances under whicli tho sale takes
place are such as are certain to
make it an occasion of very great
interest. There is now no longer
any doubt that this city will be
connected by railway with the main
line of the C. P. B., and thero is
every prospect that the connecting
line will be finished and in operation early next July. These facts
alone are sufficient to make property
in this city perfectly safe as a speculative investment, Not only so,
but it must occur to every one that
property in this city is bound to
advance, and those who are desirous
of possessing a lot upon which to
build themselves a home, ought to
secure it before nny considerable
advance takes place, Xew Westminster has advantages of climato
and situation whicli cannot be found
anywhere on Burrard Inlet, and
we have no doubt that many persons who in the near future may
engage in business at tho inlet terminus will make their homes in
tliis city. For purposes of manufacture we have also great advantages in the abundant supply of
fresh water and the proximity of
agricultural districts from which
produce and other supplies may be
drawn. It is a fact worth being
remembered thnt since property began to advance in this city four or
live years ago, there has never been
a reaction. We do not know of n
single instance within the past five
years in wliich city property has
changed hands except at an advance. This is not a "boom" city,
and it is not a city that depends
for its existence and growth upon
being a railway terminus. Long
before ever the Canadian Pacific
Railway had been thought of, New
Westminster had a place and a
name, and she would be able always to exist without the advantages of railway connection. But
these advantages must add greatly
to her future development, and
there was probably never a period
in her history when city property
promised better and more certain
returns.
tight will probably take pluco when
the powers of the Irish parliament
come to be fixed. Mr. Parnell hns
declared for Irish independence,
which will certainly be resisted by
the empiro with as much vigor as
thc United States resisted Recession.
There must be a central power in
the empire, and to that power must
tlie Irish parliament bo subject.
But if Ireland gets a local parliament, why should not the same
concession be made to Scotland and
to England? It must inevitably
come to this. The land grievances
in Scotland are very little less
serious than tho land grievances of
Ireland, and when one has been
adjusted the othor will have to be
adjusted also. Then there is tho
question of disestablishment, which
has long been pressing upon public
attention, and cannot much longer
be warded ofl*. Tho time is approaching, also, wheu temperance reform
will appear its a distinct issue witli
which the governing powers will be
compelled to deal, In the face of
these serious questions, touching
both the moral and materia] interests of the empire, we hope the
coming Britisli government may be
conspicuous for wisdom, moderation, and firmness.

The Contest.
It is expected tliat thc general
elections in Great Britain will begin
to-day,   and   the   result   will   lie
watched with the greatest interest
hy all the civilized world,    In Great
Britain   the   elections   do not all
tako place in one day, as with us,
hut they extend over a period of
nearly  two weeks.    My the flth or
6th  December it is expected  thu
returns will bo completed, and il
will  he pretty well known whether
Tory   or  Liberal principles aro to
prevail.     There   uro many   great
questions of public policy coming
np for adjustment, and it ought to
be tho wish of all patriotic men
that a strong government, animated
by a spirit of forbearance and moderation- should be ou hand to deal
with   theso   perplexing  -juostions.
One   of  the first things the new
house  will have to deal with may
be ti great European war as the
result of the present complications
between Bulgaria and Servia   Then
there is the Irish question that is
suro to present   itself  early und
often.    There seems to bo no hope
of pacifying Ireland short of con
ceding  nn   Irish  parliament,   To
this concession there is, perhaps, no
valid objection, and there is much
rjiuon to hope that it will bo mode
by either party.    Bttt the great
More Misrepresentation.
Finding himself unable, apparently, to discuss public questions
fairly, the editor of tlie Colonist,
whenever he becomes involved in a
controversy, immediately resorts to
misrepresentation. It is for this
reason that we often sutler to pass
without notice remarks in thnt jour*,
nal which aro calculated to prejudice the public interest. It is most
unsatisfactory to c .-ry on a public
discussion with a person who, either
ignorantly or wilfully, is forever
misrepresenting the facts*. The
Colonist's last article on ihe gulf
railway ferry is so full of the silliest kind of misrepresentation that
we must bo excused if we refer to
it briefly. "The Columbian never
approaches any subject affecting
local matters * * * without invoking the sectional bogy to assist him
in tho discussion." So says our
cotemporary. For our part we cannot see very well how a local matter could be discussed without what
tho Colonist calls sectionalism. But
who first brought forward the cry
of sectionalism? Our cotemporary
knows perfectly well tliat it was
himself, when lie undertook to interfere with the location of tho defences of Uritish Columbia. Tho
people of the mainland and Tin:
Columbian ottered no interference
with these defences until they found
that, for reasons that must have
been purely local and selfish, ttie
people of Victoria were meddling
with the matter. Then The Columbian made a protest, nnd tins
was the beginning of the Battery
0 discussion. Our readers know
very well how impossible it is to
fasten upon us the charge of sectionalism in connection with this or
any other public question. While
the Colonist maintained that uo
other place in the province oxcept
Victoria nnd Esquimalt needed protection, Thk Columbian's sehome
contemplated also the fortification
of New Westminster, Burrard Inlet, and Nanaimo, Our cotemporary goes on to say that the battery
controversy had its origin in a threat
of Thb Columbian "to keep his
eye on Gen. Middleton and Sir A.
Caron." No such threat, or anything like it, ever appeared in Thk
Columbian at all. It is perfectly
without foundation; and when our
cotemporary grows facetious over
his speculations upon the number of
eyes possessed by the editor of this
journal, he simply proclaims his
own dishonesty. Wo have eyes
enough to discover our cotemporary's
weaknesses, and shall not hesitate
to expose them whenever it seems
to us proper. "The latest contretemps of the Columbian was in
manifesting joy at Hr. Van Home's
romark that a ferry from Coal Harbor was Impracticable, and in asserting that the Colonist accepted the
situation * * * It seems strango
to Iind a newspaper published in
any part of the province rejoicing
at what it is pleased lo term Victoria's downfall and Victoria's do-
cay," I n both these sentences our
cotemporary further resorts to
wicked misrepresentation, because
it is evidently mado for thc purpose
of creating a prejudico against this
journal in the minds of its Victoria
patron?. Thb Columiuan never
gave uttoraiico to any expression of
joy over the gulf ferry failure, Indeed, we have never for a moment
supposed such a scheme possiblo
under any circumstances, and Mr.
Van Home's opinions upon that
question were just what ovory unprejudiced person would have expected. The Colonist cannot produce a sentence from this journal
expressing such sentiments as he
mentions, and his attempt to place
us iu a false position is both inexcusable and unworthy of a publio
journelUt.

Is the Railway to Stop?
Ily Telegraph.
Valb, Nov. 23.—The railway puople
hore aud along the line were notified
to-day that their services would not be
required after the 30th inst. It oaused
much excitement among the business
men here, and the query among them
is, are we coming back to the days of
bull teams and our mail service by
canoe 7 The head railway officials here
are very reticent on the aubject, and
from what your correspondent could
find out there docs not appear to he
any provision mado for operating the
road after Onderdonk closes down.
This state of affairs is too terrible to
realize. The people of the upper coun*
try have been depending on the railway to bring in their winter supplies,
and to shut down the road now, at the
close of navigation, will leave them in
a bad state.

But after making a few trips across the

a coal hulk to carry ooal from England
to Gibraltar. The Great Eastern is
092 feet long, 83 feet in breadth, and

No Discrimination.—-It is Baid that
the Canadian Pacific will be run on an
entirely different plan from any consistent with American railway ideas,
It will not discriminate against its
local points, because it cannot afford
to do so. The line runs through a
sparsely settled region, aud it must be
built up by the railroad. Overland
freights and fares will be placed at as
low a rate as the company oan afford,
and there ia uo doubt that its business
will be quite extensive.—*8t. Paul Pioneer Press.

A Heavy Calkndak.— Tho court of
assize opened at Victoria on Monday.
The calendar ia unusually heavy.
Tliere are 40 oases, of which 2 are
murder, 2 forgery, and 26 larceny in
various degrees. Fifteen of the coses
are against Ohinamen, and 2 are
against Indians. Mr. Justice Gray
presides, and it is not likely the business will bo finished in much less than
three weeks. Among the cases set
down for this court are the Greer case
for forgery, and the caso againBt Capt.
Wm. Moore for piracy of the Blr.
Teaser.
Dentistry; —Mr. E. T, CroBsetto,

The Babtlktt Case,*—Mr. Justice
McCreight deliverod judgment yesterday in the celebrated Chilliwhack
lunch case. The learned judge held
that the evidence againBt defendant
was not audi as would satisfy him in a
criminal case that the parties were
LMiilty, and he would, therefore, quash
the conviction, but without costs. He
stated that in his opinion it is not ne*
cessnry to apply to a license court for
a license to furnish beer at a restaurant, but it Ib sufficient to deposit the
license feo. A full report of the judgment will appear on Saturday.
The Poisonkii at Work.— Oirft-
turning home from church last Sunday
Mrs, W. D. Purdy found her cat lying
at the door dead. It had evidently
boon poisoned. As soon ns she opened
tho door the dog ran into the house
and fell. It had taken poison also!
Fortunately assistance was at hand,
uud a diligent application of the proper remedies rosulted in saving the
dog's life, but it was a close shave, It
would bo interesting to know who administered tho poison. Was it tho
same liend who left a bottle of strychnine in front of Mr. Turnbull'a,
Open Meeting.—Oh Friday night
the Good Templars held an open meeting in their lodge room. There was a
fair attendance, and a good programme
was given, consisting of songs by Miss
Holden, WlUs Agnes MoMurphy, Misa
Davidson, Mr. Jno. MoMurphy, and
Mr. Chas. Merritt; a duet by Messrs.
Jno, McMurphy and Win. Johnston;
piano solo by Mr. Levy; recitations
by Mr. Jno. MoMurphy nnd Mr. Major Williams; a reading by Miss Martha Grant; addresses by Mr. W. C.
Stoves and Mr. P. Peebles; and two
or three choruses. Some of the pieces
weru very well given, and the applause
was most hearty.
A Sixiivlak Movement. — Among
the telegraphic despatches published
to-day will be found one stating that
the whole population of St. Martha
had voluntarily taken a pledge of total
abstinence from alcohol for one year.
This is a very remarkable case. St.
Martha is a town of about 3,000 inhabitants, in the province of Quebec,
and if tho inhabitants honestly adhere
to their pledge for the term specified,
wu are greatly mistaken if the town
will not be found richer and better and
happier and more prosperous. If any
person doubts this, let him try it on
himself. What benefits an individual
is usually henoticinl to a community.
A Forced Vacation,—At a nie-iting
of the congregation of St. Andrew's
church, hold last Thunday night, it
was dcoided to urge the pastor, Rev.
J. S. McKay, M. A., to tako two or
three months' holidays on account of
failing henlth. On Friday Mr. McKay's friends learned with regret that
his medical adviser, Dr. MacSwain, had
ordered him tu spend tho winter in
southern California. It ia understood
that ho will leavo for California in a
fow days. Uov. Mr. Jamieson has
volunteered to supply St. Andrew's
pulpit as far as lm health will permit.
Tho departure of Rev. Mr. McKay
will bo deeply regretted by all who
know him. We hope his absence will
be only temporary.

Choral Union Concert.—The firat
concert of the Choral Union for the
season came off as announced lost
Monday ovening. The first part of
the programme waa tnkon up with the
cantata of the Sleeping Beauty. The
leading parts were well taken by Mra,
Sillitoe, Misa McColl, Miss Black,
Miss Sutherland, Miss Annio Homer,
and Miss Woods. The piece wns rendered in a way thut deserves very
great praise. Iu the second part theru
wero solus by Mis. Sillitoe, Miss Sutherland and Mr. DeBeck, a numbor of
part-songs, and a piano solo by Miss
Major. Iu this part of the programme
alao the performers did themselves
muoh credit. It is to be regrotted
that a larger audience was not preseut
to enjoy u really good and entertain-
ing concert.
The Brant- Rail Trade.—The trim
Age states that about 15,000 to 18,000
tons of steel rails for next year's do-
livery have been sold recently, mostly
for New England roads. The Bulletin
says of the stool rail market: "Thoro
continues to be a very good demand,
and the rail market is reported as in a
very strong position. The general
rate at the eastern mills is now $31 for
heavy sections. A few small contracts
are reported pending, which will probably closo at $30, but this price has
been refused for several large blocks,
aggregating 75,000 tons, for next year.
Western, as well as eastern mills, it is
said, have enough orders to employ
the present capacity for tho next three
months, while several havo a good
amount of business for the early part
of next year."
HuobLocomotives—Larger engines,
faster time and longer runs are the
order in England us well na in thia
country. The Northeastern Railway
Company is having twenty now engines
built Bolely for expresa service, which,
in several respects, will he unequalled
in the world. These are aome of tlio
characteristics: Drivers—four wheels
coupled—7 feet 2 inches in diameter;
leading wheels, 4 feet 6 inches in diameter; wheel base, 10 feet 8 inches;
cylinders, 18x24 inches; capacity of
tender, 2,800 gallons of water, and 3
tons of coal; weight of engine-with
steam up, 42 tons; weight of tender,
28 tons; total, 70 tons. These engines
will each be capable of running express from York to Edinburg in one
journey, thus doubling the length of
run, two now being required. As for
their speed, it is stated that on a trial
trip one already built made the extraordinary time of eighty miles per hour.
—Exchange.
Poor John!—During tho trial of
the cases against tho British bark Hat-
tie E, Tupley and her master, Capt.
Finleyson, Judge McGUvra had a Chinaman, by the name of Linn Chin,
who was employed un board of the
vessel, then lying in the harbor at
Victoria, subpeenuod as a witness, The
witness came undor process of the
court and testified. The cases were
disposed of to-day and then the question arose what ahall be done with
Linn Chin ? The discussion of thia interrogatory afforded much amusement.
The matter came up for final disposition this afternoon, U, S. District Attorney White asked for an order of the
Chinaman's deportation to Victoria,
After considering whether ho should
be deported to Hongkong whence tho
vessel sailed, to Victoria or to the
deck of the bark whence ho wits taken,
the court at last ordered his deportation to Victoria and instructed Marshal
Goorgo to carry out tho order. If tho
British authorities nli ould refuse hia
admission unless $50 head tax is prepaid, the quory is who will have to put
that up ISeattle Chronicle.
The Teaser Cane.—After a long
hearing in the case of Capt. Moore)
charged with the piracy of the str,1
Teaser, the magistrate delivered the
following judgment: The facts are that
Turner, Beeton &■ Co. were mortgagees in possession of the steamer, and
their claim never was disputed. They
paid all disbursements and employed
Capt. Moore and paid him his salary.
They had engaged htm to run tho boat
on a certain route betweon this city
and New Westminster. Capt. Moore
also occupied another capacity than
that of captain, as he was always,con-.,
suited by Turner, Beeton & Co, Then*
was sufficient evidence to go to a jury
to show that Cupt. Moore took the
steamer off the route ou which it was
placed and sent it away somewhere
else. It has not beon shown where
the vessel has gone. I can't doubt for
a moment that Capt. Moore knew
about the vessel going away, as ull tho
circumstances indicated that he wns at
least accessory to taking the veaael. It
is aaid that he acted under a claim of
right, but there has been no evidence
to sustain that statement. If Oapt,
Moore or his son have claims, and they
may have, those claims are such as
may be enforced in a court of law, and
not by running away with the vossel.
I do not know if the charge amounts
to piracy.'but there is a prima facie
case to send to a jury. Accessories to
piracy are equally guilty and punishable with principals. The safest course
he thought would be to continue his
bail and send the case to a jury. Bait
was continued at the same amount,
and the case sent to the assizes for
trial.

City Council.—Council met ou Monday night. Present, the Mayor aud
Couns, Lord, Elliott, Bonson, Hendry,
and Shiles. Sundry accounts were passcil,
On motion of Coun. Hendry, seconded
by Coun. Lord, the following resolution
was passed: "Whereas the council have
been informed by tho hou. provincial
secretary that it is the opinion of the
hon. attorney-general that the govern
ment do not possess the power to convey
the reserve on Falso Creek rond to thia
corporation for the purposes of a race
course, and that legislation will be necessary for that purpose; and whereas tho
council believe that tho conveyance of
the said lands to trustees under tlie provisions of thn "Publio Parks Act, 1878,"
and see. 68 of the "Land Act, 1S84,"
would practically enable the people of
this municipality and tho publio generally to enjoy the great benefit and advantage hoped to be derived from the
conveyance of the said landa to this corporation; bo it therefore resolved thnt
the mayor communicate with the hon.
the provincial secretary to learn whether
the government will causo tho said lauds
to be conveyed to tanstres under the
provisions of thu said net, aud upon what
tonus and conditions." Resolutions were
posaed authorizing the aalo of certain
lots in the oity squares, a list of which
will be found in our advertising coIuuiub.
The following regulations respecting this
sale were adopted: If anv portion of snid
lands shall remain unsold ou tho said day
(Deo. 22nd), tliu sale thereof Bhall he cim-
tinned on the day next thereafter, at tho
like hour and the same place, ami so
from day tu day during every lawful day
so long as mav be necessary. Notwithstanding anything herein contained, the
sale of tho said lands may be stopped at
any time by the mayor nml finance committee, if in thulr opinion the prices
theretofore realized ara not sufficient.
Ths oity barristers were authorized to
defend the oasu of Wiggins vs. thc corporation. The hoard of works wns authorised to spend 8100 on Edinburgh Bt.

ChllllwliMk Indians,
11 is aaid Dial a lar->u parly of Chil
li whack Indians are encamped just
across the border of Whatcom county
in Hrilirih Columblu, probably trying
to work up enough courngo to start
out on a marauding expedition through
this county in revenge for some imaginary wrongs. Tho have not forgotten
the necktie party tendered one of thoir
tribe for murdering Hell at Nooksack
a year ago, aud they now feel aggrieved
to think that one of their number is
accused is crossing Whatcom county on
a horse-stealing expedition. They
seem to think that their rights have
been abridged; that thoy should bo
allowed to cross the border ut will and
exercise their piratical propensities,
It is about timo that Whatcom county
ceased to bo an asylum for British
Columbia marauding Indians and
smuggling Chinamen. Our own Indians, tho Nooksacks nud Lummis,
are very peaceable, and we shall not
permit foreign invaders to plunder us.
Their movements should be carefully
watched.—Whatcom Mewitte, We are
inclined to think that our cotemporary
has been misinformed nbout the action
and intent of the Chilliwhack Indians.
A Saw Case.—The poor victim of
Chronic Dyspepsia apparently sutlers all
the Ills of life, living in continual torture. Regulate the Liver and tho Bowels and tono tho stomaoh with Burdock
Blood Bitters and the dyspeptic's trouble

Maple Ridge, Nov. 20.—On the
evening of the 17th iiiBt., the Bnv.
Mr. Lonnio, Baptist minister from
New Weatminator, delivered a temperance lecturo in the Methodist church,
Maple Ridgo. There wore about 30
persons present, and at the close two
wero induced to sign the pledge. Our
causB hero is steadily progressing. At
every gospel meeting mimes have been
added to our roll. The ladies of the
union are indefatigable in their efforts
to arrest the evils of intemperance; iu
this they havo the sympathy and cooperation of many of our best families,
whilo many who are not identified with
them wish thom God-spcod iu theu
noble work. It is highly gratifying to
know that throughout this vast Dominion tho voice of earnest, pleading
woman is being raised against the nefarious traflic of strong drink; and it
is to bo hoped that tho timo is uot far
distant when from enst to west und
nortii to south of this great hind men
will have to look in vain for n grog
shop or for tho vending of thoso beverages wliich dethrone man of hia reason
and sink him to the level of the brute.
It is true there is a strong opposing
influence with which we hnvo to contend, nevertheless wo are not discouraged. Truth is mightier than error,
virtue than vice, God than the evil
man. In contending ngniiiBt this evil
we havo the help of Him who "was
manifested that ho might destroy tho
works of tho devil"; and "In tho name
of our God we will sot up our banners."—Sioma.

Chilliwhack, Nov. 18.—Tho long
period nf rainy weather has at last
ended, at whicli everybody is greatly
pleased. There has been much improvement made here during the past
summer both in buildings and farms.
Hev. Mr. Tato has made an addition
tu his house which makes it both attractive nud commodious. Mr. A. S.
Vedder has made many improvements
ou Iub place, and Mr. S. Knight has
his new house nearly completed, Rev.
Mr. Patterson, ltiftf ofSpallumcheon,
is expected hero shortly to take part
of tho work on this aido of the river.—
The Victoria Times of 13th inat, states,
among other items, that tho Chilli-
whackers want a liquor lioonse. Tho
Times need not borrow any trouble.
The poople here havo within their own
hands the power to get a license whenever they want ono, but thoy are not
in the least anxious for tho establishment of a licensed grog shop. Thoy
havo aeon enough of the evil results of
unlicensed houses to prevent any such
foolish desire.—The Cheam Blue Ribbon club hold its regular monthly
meeting in the Cheam school house on
Monday evening. Mr. D. F. Greyell
occupied tho chair, and a vory interesting debute took place on the relative
strength of lovo and revenge. The
arguments advanced were powerful
and eloquently delivered, and revenge
won the day.—An epidemic among the
horses has been making considerable
ravages lately. Mra, J. Evans has
lost two valuable animals, and quite a
number of others have been attacked.
themselves Bay there is plenty to oat
thore, and plenty of opportunities to
obtain it. There have already been
aome raids made, but the mounted
police authorities have done all in their
power to keep the truth from reaching
tho public ear, but iu Uegiua thoy ure
matters of common conversation and
well known. The Dominion governmont with its usual want of foresight
has extended its postB and telegraph
service to tliose points near tho line
where it was impossible to maintain
thom, and some timo ago erected a
post at Wood Mountain, and built at
great expense a telegraph line from
Moosejaw to that place. This post
has hud to be abandoned in consequence of want of sheltor and difficulty of provisioning, and the expensive telegraph line has also beon abandoned. Calgary peoplo who are now
here stato that the Indians make no
secret of their intention to raid the
ranches early next year.—Globe Despatch.
Highest Praise.-The well-known
drug firm of N. C. Poison k Co., of Kingston, writes that Dr. Fowler's Extract
of Wild Strawberry lias long been considered the best remedy for Summer
complaints in the markets, and adds that
their customers speak in the highest
terms of its merits. Wild Strawberry
is the beat known remedy for Cholera
Morbus, Dysentery, and all Bowel Complaints.
A Certain Result,—In all disturbed
action of thc Stomach, tho Bowels, tho
Liver or the Kidneys the result of tak
ing Burdock Blood Bitters iB certain to
afford prompt benefit to the sufferer.
Burdock Blood Bitters cure when other

lUiiiN.*., Nov. 12.— Tho hopes that
wore entertained that tho rebellion of
thia year was the last of the troubles
iu the North-west scorn to bo doomed

that of last March. This, howover,
will be con lined to the Indians located

alarming nature. It is assorted tho
southern and northern tribes of Indians
are on the point of forming an alliance
to sweep the whole country from the far
north to the boundary line, massacring
inhabitants nntl destroying their homes.
This means much moro than the late
rebellion, und it will bo impossible for1
tho government to compare it to a simple
riot. Prom information obtained from
runners who have been among the various tribes, and from observation of
others, it is predicted trouble may come
at any moment. The government was
warned very much in the same manner
of the Saskatchewan troublea, but neglected to take precautionary measures
until it waa too lato, [Thia Ib extremely
doubtful.— El).]
London, Nov. 21.—The Exchange

Wlinrf St., Victoria, B. (1.
H/ovnnHior lllll, IRR*. nojlto Is Astrology Credible?
In hiB last Sunday morning's sermon
Rev. Dr. Titlmago said: While lying
under tho open scroll of tho midnight
heavens Amos studied tho Pleiades or
seven stars and Orion, the former
group aaBociating in hia mind with
spring, as it risoa about tho first of
May, and the latter with winter, aa it
cornea - to the meridian in January,
Tho ono suggested sweetness and joy
and the othor heralded thc tempest.
The ancients wore the more apt to
study the physiognomy nnd juxtaposition of the heavenly bodiea because
they thought they had a apecial influence upon the earth. And perhaps
they wero right. If tho moon evory
few hours lifts and lets down the tides
of the Atlantic, and tho electric storms
of laat year in tho sun, by nil scientific
admission, affected the earth, why not
the stars have proportionate effect?
And there are some things which make
onu think it may not have been all
superstition which connected the movements and appearance of the heavenly
bodiea with great moral events on the
earth. Did not a meteor run an evangelistic errand on tho first Christmas
night and designate the rough cradlo
of our Lord ? Waa it merely a coincident that before thc destruction of
Jerusalem tho moon was eclipsod for
twelve coiiBecutive nit'hts? Did it
merely happen that a new star appeared in constellation Cassiopeia and
thon disappeared juBt before King
Charles IX. of Franco, who was responsible for the St. Bartholomew
massacre, died? Was it without significance that iu the days of tho Roman emperor Justinian war and famine
wore preceded by tho dimness of the
sun, which for nearly a year gave no
more light than tho moon, although
thero were no clouds to obscure it 1
Astrology, after all, may hnvo been
something more than a brilliant heathenism. _
Fleeced on Stocks.
Tho ideal business of the New York
Stock Exchange is unquestionably as
legitimate as that of the produce exchange, or of any intermediary between the seller and the buyer.. That
there are grave evils incident to its
operation is equally unquestionable.
The war for tho preservation of tho
Union largely converted tho American
people into a nation of speculators.
The rage for sudden wealth was further intensified by tho discoveries of
mineral oil and the precious metals.
These created innumerable companies
for the exploitation of mines, tho construction of railroads, and othor objects. Sudden and violent fluctuations
in the price of stocks, and the daily
roport thereof in the newspapers,
aggravate the speculative spirit. Considerations of morality and prudence
nre aet at naught by those who will bo
rich, and who dream of opulence by
other methods than Iho slow and
steady measures of thoir fathers. Professional men, merchants, manufacturers, mechanics, farmers, widows,
and spinsters, blinded by the glare of
success, and hoping to strengthen
their Blender income, have adventured
their savings upon the treacherous sea
of Wall Street, and lost them all. To
them the exchange building is a whited
sepulchre in which fortunes lie entombed, a sea in which voracious
sharks rend or swallow the little lish
wlio dare to enter its troubled waters,
a gambling saloon where deceit and
desperation wait upon the players. It
may have been such to them, simply
because they mado it such, not because they availed themselves of its
real functions.
An immense amount of gambling is
done in piratical relation to it, and in
spite of the strenuous exertions of tho
stock-brokers to prevent it. The
"bucket shops" situated in the large
townB nud cities of the country are
the instruments by which it ia carried
on. The proprietors of theae nefarious establishments surreptitiously obtain quotations from the stock exchange. Tickers are refused to them
by the Western Union unless four
members of the board vouch for the
worthiness of each applicant. The
quotations desired are furnished by
persons who have bound themselves
to that telegraph company not to do
so, and who lmvo obtained injunctions
from the courts restraining the corporation from removing their instruments. Former insolvent members of
tlm stock exchange, now known as
"exempt members," are among the
liners of tho knowledge thus acquired,
Because of this grievance the Chicago
Hoard uf Trado has compelled tho
Western Union to remove ita tickera
from their oflicea—a precedent lhat
the New York Stock Exchange will
probably follow unless tins grievance
be redressed.
In theso bucket shops a blackboard,
with list uf stocks at prices quoted in
New York inscribed thereon, is displayed. Speculative clerks and others
arc invited to bot upon theso quotations, under the pretense of the put
nnd call system. For example, one is
induced to buy, on a margin of $1
por share, livo shares of Missouri,
Kansas, and Texas stock at Kij. If
it rises to 17}, he gets back his margin
and gains $5, If it drops to 15}, he
loses hia margin or bet. The secret of
ruin in thousands of instances is to be
found in the gambling of bucket shops,
Yet the wealthy patronize and aro
fleeced by them. Quirk of Knaveville
keeps a bucket shop, nnd receives the
quotations. He confidentially informs
his trusting patrons that ho has certain knowledge that an inactive stock
ia about to rise in price—say the Denver and Rio Grande, now Boiling at !>
—and persuades them to venture $1
por share to the oxtent of 15,000
shares. This done he telegraphs to a
broker to "sell 3,000, D. and R, fl.—
quick, quick," in blocks from 8J to 8.
The selling broker, alono or with assistance, makes his offers, which are accepted by another broker to whom
Quirk has telegraphed tu buy the
stocks offered nt those prices. The
last quotation, 8, fixes thu price, Tho
telegraph announces it at Knaveville,
The $15,000 margin, minus the one-
fourth of one per cent, brokerage on
the fictitious mles, is swept into the
swindler's pooket,
While the stook exchange haa legitimate and invaluable usea, it ia none
the leu true tbat it has beon nud is
converted into a gambling arena by
the great speculative operators, most
of whom have sprung from tho lower
walks of rural life, who control the
management of railroads whose stocks
are active.    Tlie facta of good or bad
harvests, freight or passenger traffic,
ratea of transportation, can not ex-
plain the fluctuations of their prices.
Tho secret is to be found in the parlors of directors.    There flaming report! of prosperity are prepared, and
unearneJ dividend! declared to "bull
ths   atock.     There   uoounto   •»
"cooked" io u to exhibit decrwed
earnings, needless expenses for rolling
stock and improvements uf permanent
way incurred, floating debts swelled,
acceptances issued for discount, and
that will purposely be allowod to go
to protest when duo, earned dividends
passed, ovil prophecies uttered, to
"boar" the Btock. By "ways thnt aro
dark and tricks that are vain" the
conspirators acquiro colossal wealth.—
Harper's Magazine,
Tlie Alsonm's Wreck.
A SURVIVOR'S STORY.
Wm. R. McCarter, one of the paa-
Hengors saved, is from Meaford, whero
he formerly had au interest in the
Monitor newspaper, Mr. McCarter
was on his way to British Columbia
with a neighbor named Wm. Mulligan,
who was going theru to settle. Mr.
Mulligan is ou tho list of thoso lost.
Mr. McCarter gives tho following account of the accident: Thero was a
strong wind blowing during the trip
from Owen Sound until lato on Friday
night, when the passongers went to
bed. The Algoma struck nbout '20
minutes to five o'olock Saturday morning. Tho shock was a severe one and
tho vessel trembled and shivered. I
rushed out and saw three or four deck
hanks rushing aft and waving their
hands like peoplo demented. I followed them and asked "What is
wrung?" Thoy replied that thoy did
not know, but that something terrible
had happened. A stranger stopped
me and said, "Thia is a terrible occurrence. It ia sad to think we all must
die here. Let ua hope it will turn out
all right." This poor man was drowned in less than a quarter of an hour
after. Tho men from down bolow all
cruwded up ou the higher dock and
along the port sido. Tho storm was
terrible. The waves rushed in great
mountains over the decks, and every
few minutes
THE D&SPAItUNG SHRIEK
of Borne unfortunate person was heard
as they were carried out to soa and
lust. The vessel lay broadside to tho
island, and there was a dreadful surf,
an awful sea pounding and boatinj
against her aides. The cabin soon gavo
way, and the women and children and
men wore then washed ofl' the boat beyond all hopes of safety. A great
many persona grew almost crazy, and
jumped into the sea in hopes of getting
ashore. We did not know where we
were at first, as it was quito dark and
there was a terrible storm of sleet and
snow blowing in on ub. The electric
lights went out a few minutes after the
boat struck, and tho confusion and excitement were terrible.
THE CAPTAIN
alone remained cool and steady. He
showed what n fine man he really was
just theu, and did his duty like a man.
When it seemed certain death to run
a life line along the deck ho seized a
rapo and strung out the line, tolling
tho excited people to hold ou to the
rope and nut become panic stricken.
High rocks loomed up in front of hb
and the pitiless sea tried to snatch us
iu its icy clasp on every Bide. In this
manner we passed the night until it
was fairly day light, the waves dashing
over us every few seconds and bearing
some one away from the life room. I
was standing between the captain and
another man when the cabin came
crashing down on the captain nnd pinned him to the ground, He cried out
"Oh I'm dono for now! But what will
becomo of these poor people?" The
man on the other side received a severe
blow on his head and cried out "I'm
crushed! I'm gone!" The next great
wave carried htm off without the
slightest struggle, and he went to death
without a groan,
THE  NH'HT WAH TERRIBLE.
No ono can ever imagine what the people must havo endured. Timbers wero
falling in every direction. The waves
seemed to crush the boat like an eggshell, and evory once in a while a falling stick would bo followed by a deep
groan and we knew some brave mnn
had given up the battle. I was dashed
several times against the bulwarks, and
received this cut on my left eye and
the top of my head, but in all other
respects I hud a wonderful cscpe. Although it was madness tu leap through
the angry surf in an attempt to reach
dry laud several determined follows
made tho effort with life-prcaervors.
Only three landed; the others were
hurled against the rocks with tremendous force and mangled beyond recognition. The stern of the vessel wub
gradually shoved in to the shoro until
it rested solid. We huddled close together in the steerage deck with a few
blankets, and spent the whole day
IN   TERRIBLE ANXIETY.
No one felt inclined to talk, but we
sat and looked with anxious eyes at
each other, listening to tho awful
swish-swash of the merciless waves as
they tore along tho decks and broke
tho bulwarks in pieces. Before we
rolled tho captain up he said, "Men,
lut us unite in prayer," and with death
staring us in tho faco we knelt down
nnd the captain prayed for us nll.
Night came, and thoro seemed no hopo.
The sea kept bursting over the vessel.
Tho night was spent in darknoss, with
nothing tn eat or drink. During the
night we could hear the captain enquire from the sput whore ho lay a
prisoner to his injuries, "How's the
wind, mate?" and hu seemed glsd when
ho was told that it wna vi'eriuguround
tu the shore sido. Sunday morning
the men un the island took a .ilo line
from us and brought us ashore un a raft.
We aent thn captain first and another
man with him to hold him, as he was
unable to stand. The island proved
to bo Isle Ruyalo and some fishermen
saw us, invited us to their house, and
kept ub very comfortable. Wo spent
Sunday night thore and the next morning about 5 o'clock the fishermen
bruught over their fishing tug and asked the captain what was best to be
done. He told them to intercept the
Athabasca, They did so and the oflicers camo over tothe island on the tug
fur us about an hour after daylight,
I  think  we  were carrying foresail,
