The Pacific Railway Terminus
at Tort Moody.
(From tlio' Of'tawn free Vna.)
In view of tlm fact that tenders
for the, construction of tlie link in
tlie Pacific Railway between Emory
ami Port Moody will lie sent into
the department here about tlio 1st
February it would bo well to recall
some important facts heaving on the
question of the location of tho terminus of the road on the mainland
of British Columbia. In Mr. Cam
bin's report dated April 18tlt, 1878,
we find that in the table of distances
he set* down a temporary terminus
nt Port, Jfoddy and a permanent terminus at English Buy, the latter being at the mouth of Burrard In
15 miles west of Port Moody on the
•strait of Georgia. This shows that
the engineer specially dctuilfd to
examine aud report on the t?raser
river route did not contemplate Port
Moody as anything hut a temporary
terminus.
fu the next place we find in Mr.
liniun's letter to thu government of
Columbia, contained in n return to
thu House of Commons last) session,
dated May 29th, 1878, tliat by direc
tion of Mr. Mackenzie he asked that,
under the terms of union, a strip of
land to be reserved along the line of
railway should commence at English
Bay, and extend to the summit of
Tete Jaune Pass. This carries out,
the idea contained in Mr. Gamble's
report fixing English Hay as the
permanent turnniuis on the Mainland. We may remark here that the
government of Columbia complied
with the request of the Dominion
Minister and reserved, and subsequently conveyed by Statute in 1880.
the tract of land described by Mr.
Bi-tiun.
jn j July, 1878, Mr. Mackenzie,
following out tho report of Mr. Gullible already quoted, defined the route
of tho railway by Ordor-in-Oouncil
"from TettfJaunePass to Port Moody
or such other point on Burrard Inlet
as may be found most convenient for
tlie purpose of luirhoi* accommodation," Here again we have a continuation of the fact tlt'sOTtie government of that day had not decided ou
making Port Moody the terminus; and further, that, it was intended to place it at English Bay, as
the land asked for'commences at
that place.
We thus have a clear idea of how
the matter stood in the estimation
of the Mackenzie government, and
that the terminus wtta never fixed
by it at Port Moody, as a permanent arrangement,, or ut any other
place on the Inlet, 'but the demand
for laud starting at English Bay
shows, if any place was contemplated, that was the spot. Following up the record in time, we find
thai on the 4th of October, 1879,
an order-in-coiiucil was passed confirming the route as laid down by
Mr. Mackenzie in 1878—Ho a point
on or near Bnrranl Inlet"—implying English Bay. This hoars out
the contention that this government
has not yet tixml the terminus at
Hurt Moody. They have, however,
I culled for tenders and will, in all
probability, award the contract for
the road to tliat point.
Since, therefor**, it in abundantly
evident that English Uiy has been
regarded all along as the most likely
terminus, the question arises—would
it not be better to use the money
proposed to be expended iu making
a temporary harbor at Port Moody
iu carrying the tine on fifteen miles
farther to English Bay I This idea
wns strongly advocated by Dr. Mclnnes, M. P. for New Westminster,
who urged that the Hue be carried via
Now Westminster City, or by the
middle route by the lakes, to English Bay. The Dominion Pacific
Herald alluding to this plan says :—
"We are in a position to state, without any betrayal of confidence, that
the government' readily agreed to
bring the railway lo this city (New
i Westminster), provided the Syndicate would undertake the remaining
portion between, here and the Inlet,"
meaning English Bay. Tho question now is has the Syndicate agreed
to this proposition 1 But, whether
they have or huve not, the government are evidently bound to make
provision for the extensi :ii to English Bity before expending a largo
Stun in1 nn attempt to construct a
temporary Urjiiiinix at Purl Moody.
Our position itU'urther strengthened
by, the authority of gentlemen who
have visited the ground recently.
They say that Port Moody cannot
us made a penimnent terminus on
iccount of natural obstacles. These
ibstacles aro explained hy tho t'ol-
owing  extracts from tho Dominion.

VOLUME 21
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1882.
 l ^ j& :	
NUMBER 11
Pacific Herald of New Westminster :
"A critical examination and survey
reveal tho fact that if the railway goes
to Port Moody at all, it cannot bo continued on to Coal Hwbor, unless at
vory great expense. Nobody has ever
Buggeated that Port Moody could be
anything more than a possible temporary resting place.'
The Coal Harbor above referred
to adjoins Englifti Bay. Another
extract from the Ume journal reads
thus:
"It was formerly intended to carry
tlie railway via Port Moody down the
southern shore of Burrard Inlet to
Coal Harbor and English Bay, that
being the oDjecttvi point towards
which all tho authorities consulted on
the tubjeot looked as tho true and inevitable terminus, one of them, the
highest of all, emphatically declaring
that 'much might profitably be sacri-
ficsd to reach that magnificent harbor.'
Accordingly a location survey of the
line was made to within two or threo
miles of Coal Harbor. Subsequently
the government conceived ths idea of
resting a while with their heavy load at
the lulet, and that is how Port Moody
came to bo mentioned as tbo present
end of the line. More recent examinations aud more mature reflection
have, however, demonstrated the unwisdom of carrying tlm railway via Port
Moody at all. It is found that serious
engineering difficulties present themselves at he head of tho inlet: that a
vory largo expenditure would mnleuus-
sary to crealo even a temporary resting place* that the harbor ia too small,
scarcely affording room for a ship to
swing nt its anchor! and I hat it freezes
over solid in winter; tint once at Port
Moody it would he extremely difficult
and expensive to got away, and that
owing to the broken and donfioiilatud
character of the share*, it wmild he
very heavy work carrying tlio mad
down to thu real terminus at the se.-i,
"tforooveV; it has been found ou careful experiment and computation that
the tidal forces encountered iu the
navigation uf the inlet, between Coal
[Lirboi* aud the head, would operate
as a serious oljsti'tiction to cojntnerco.
Under these circuiii.-taucou it would lie
strange, indeed, if tho government
had not felt called upon to ascertain
if no better way existed hy which the
final terminus might bo reached. Tho
attention of the authorities at Ottawa
was called to tho fact that there are
two alternative routes, either of wliich is
immeasurably better than tho one rt'if
Port Moody, via: thu route via Now
Westminster and tho middle route via
the lakes."
Again we find thu Herald says:
''Another difficulty appears to bo
that thoro is iw ground available there
(Port Moody) even for a temporary
terminus. Every foot would havo to
bo made, reclaimed from the sea, a
work involving an expenditure of
82,000,000, notwithstanding that nature has placed the material for lilting
close at hand in the form of knolls
and mountains.''
Such being some of the prominent fuels connected with this important mutter, we can fully sympathise with the poople of Now
Westminster iu their eflorts to have
the line carried to a good and available terminus. Certainly the government should consider the question
vory fully before coming to a decision. The extracts we have given
from the Pacific Ilerald show how
the feeling runs in New Westminster, and Mr, Mclnnes, we believe,
has fairly represented his constituents in the mutter. However there
tiro larger interests at stake in which
the whole Dominion is concerned
and these the Government cannot
neglect without running the certain
risk of future condemnation. Finally we have proved that the selection of Port Moody us a terminus
is a very grave mistake on the part
of this Uoveninu'iit, which cannot
be excused by throwing the blame
oil Mr. Mackenzie, be having never
lixed upon that place as the permanent terminus of the Pacific Railway on the mainland.

Wednesday MoruliiK, lYbnitirj- 8, 188?.
Journalistic Morality.
A case occurred recently in San
. Francisco which presents a phase of
journalistic morality that must strike
many persons as decidedly new.
The San Francisco Chronicle had
flatly declared that the Call nnd the
Bulletin had sold thair editorial iti-
fluenco to the Contra) Pacific Hail-
way Company for the sum of $30,-
000. For tliis the two panerts
entered actions for libel against the
Chronicle, and tlie case was lately
hoard btfore tho Courts. The presiding judge held that the charge
was not libelous, because a journalist had a perfect legal and moral
right to sell his talents and advocacy to whom ho pleased. ''Is it
morally or legally wrong," asks the
judge, "for a person to advocate a
project, matter, or claim, for pecuniary or valuable considftration 1"
Whatever may be the law in such
cases, we fancy tlit-ve aro few peo
pie who would not Unhesitatingly
pronounce it a great moral wrong for
the conductor of a public newspaper to dispose of his independence
in any such way. But the California judge thinks differently, ami this
ia the specious logic by which lie
seeks to maintain his position :
Talent ia as much the capital of the
advocate, the lawyer, r;.id the editor as
merchandise is of tnc merchant; helm''
as much light to sell his talents as the
merchant his merchandise. The lawyer,
the minister, the parliauicnUu-y advocate,
the lecturer, the ac.tho., sells his taleut,
and he is not less respected fo.* so doing.
The greater his lcar.ii.ig i idust y, eloquence, arid the estee a hi vhieh he is
held, tlie g*caier his poor '.ia ■;* compc ».-
Mitiou. It scums to mc taut ii is .'o more
libelous to accuse o -e of selli 'g for gr.f i
t'*e support and r.i'.voe.*.cy of jf\ ;>etvs-
pa let* than ii would be to accuse the
merchant of selli.ig for gain lii±> mer-
chandUe.
Now, it must lie quite evident that
if such a doctWre as thin is to prevail, journalistic uae'ulness, in its
higliost sense, is gone. The very
fact that a rewspaper may be paid
for its advocacy of any measure
must at oi:ce destroy the influence
of that advocacy. The puulio faith
in a journal of necessity rests upon
% belief that it is honest aud independent of mercenary motives,
and when that fa Mi lies heeu destroyed the joui'iicl's advocacy of a
measure ceases to cfi'ry nvy moro
wei;;ht than n priUuavy advet'tu.e-
mont which lies heo'i paid for nt so
much a lbe. This is niacin ie
journalism, pure ard Kimjile. It
degrades un hororable and noble
profession, aud brings it into supreme contempt. If the Sun Francisco Bulleiin receive.! §30,000 to
advocate tho interest:! o' the Ce -
tral PuciSc RaUvay, a:id the people know it, ca.i ifc be expected
that any ve'ianco will bo placed
upon the statements aud arguments
by which it seeks to peiform the
conditions of ha-'gain and sale? If
the people do not k*oow Unit its
advocacy is paid for, then surely it
is guilty of a g.'eai moral wt'or.g;
for it uses its assumed i-idepede.ice
and disintere:^edi*er»s as a mask
behind which it deliberately deceives
the public, If the California judge's
lingular code of morals bo worthy
of adoption, every journal should
frankly declare that its influence in
favor of a scheme has been paid for.
Without this there could be no
honesty in journalism. Wo arc-
greatly mistaken if tho ethic? enunciated by this judgo meet with
any favor among journalists. Iu
the newspaper world there are doubtless men who have sold themselves,
and will continue to sell themselves,
for whatever they can got. These
people are tho black sheep of the
profession, and they are almost invariable found opposing every iichsmt
intended to advance the public interest. But, generally, in this Dominion at least, the public press
holds itself above the charge of
venality. If it wero not so, the
profession would speedily become
the paradise of vampires who would
not acruplo to levy black mail upon
all whose interests it would bo in
their power to touch, for no man of
independent convictions would care
to remain iu a profession where such
principles \ prevailed. Thero are a
few to whom the new doctrine comes
with unmingled favor. They aro to
be found scattered throughout the
whole civilized world. They have
beta practising ftll their lives tho
very thing which this judgo declares
to be legally and morally right, and
his announcement comes to them as
balm to a guilty conscience. But
these people are generally known,
and their influence in the world is
generally estimated about its true
value. They are parasites who feed
upon the body politic until public
opinion brushes them off and they
sink into oblivion forever. They are
always ready to advocate or oppose
iu the interests of their own pockets.
They attack individuals, whitewash
governments, nnd put themselves in
opposition to any scheme which does
not subsidize their columns. They
are worthy constituents of tho San
Francisco judge.
Editorial Notes,
Quite a number uf new comers, including whole families, havo come in
lately, most of whom are looking for
land upon which to settle. I Jut the
laud hereabout is all locked up in the
railway reserve, and thus settlers are
to a great extent shut out. True, there
aro some very eligible lands advertised for sale iu our columns, but incoming settler*! for tho most part
prefer getting land at first hand from
the Government.
Tho Standard of Thursday last says:
"We understand that, pending their
decisions iu the constitutional points
raised in the Thrasher case, the Judges
of the Supremo Court have declined
to issue summonses or sign orders, and
that tho legal business across the Bay,
save and excepting matters in the
County Court, ia virtually at a deadlock. Litigan ■ aro consequently it
to no inconsiderable inconvenience.
The precise date when their Lordships
will deliver their respective decisions
has not yet been disclosed. The
sooner the better." It is the first
timo the organ - in - chief has been
brought to make any such admission,
and the public may bo quite sure
things have come to a terrible pass.
It would be altogether too much to
expect that the organ would acknowledge that Mr. Walkera has brought
about this truly deplorable condition
of affairs by his bungling and soitefu!
legislation, but tho public do unl need
to be told upon whom the responsibility rests; nov will they forget to
;pply tho true remedy when next they
come up the balloi-box.
With an. amount of zeal worthy a
better cause, the local organ labors to
teach this community to regard the
Cou-mujan in the light of a common
enemy. Its attempts in that direction
have beon so frequently and so effectually exposed that it seems almost
unnocssary to follow it up; and jot a
few words in reference to iii ailaok on
Saturday may bo oxcusablo. Two
distinct charges havo boen brought
against us, fl) that of having been
"one of tho most active in having the
Sappers and Miners sent away from
this ciiy;" (2) that of advocating the
taxing of the C. P. Railway. As to
the first charge, wo have to say that it
is pure and unadulterated fiction. We
will place full files of the Columbian
at tho disposal of our contemporary,
and we defy hiin to point out a single
article, paragraph, lino or word which
we wrote in tho direction of "having
the Sappers and Minors sent away
from this ciiy." Per contra, tho files
of the CotusniiAX of that period will
bo found to bristle with laudation of
tho corps of Royal Engineers end expressions of regret at their disband-
tnont. In reply to tlio second, it will
suffice simply to remind our readers
that, on the 23'li ult., in a general
ariicle upon taxing railways in California and elsewhere, we assumed that
the Canadian Pacific Railway would
be taxed in this Province as it is hi
the others, "although (wo quote from
tho article) W should regret to see attempted anything like unduly taxing a
wo,k of that Iind." But does Iho organ really desire to be understood as
advocating that the Canadian Pacific
Railway (taxed in the oilier Provinces)
should by free from taxation in British Columbia? Such a policy would
surprise no one more than the gentlemen forming the Syndicate, who assuredly expect no exemption from taxation beyond that secured to them by
the charter. Certainly such attempts
to misrepresent a contemporary do not
constitute very dignified journalism.

at the present time we are

we have ever done before, and
believing ihat "nothing succeeds like success" we shall
make greater efforts to secure
our share of business in the

the success of wliich has exceeded our expectations.
We have on order direct
from London, a splendid line,
in fashionable Millinery,
Flowers, Feathers, Dress

will surpass anything seen before in this City.
All orders entrusted to us
in this department, will be

prices will be as low as good
work will permit.
In staple and Fancy Dry
Coods, we have a good stock,
and for the spring trade we
have ordered largely from
several London Houses.
We also expect a large consignment of Carpets, Door

The J'fiLAND It A 'jWAY and ths Ca-
hadian Syndicate;.— It is no longer a
secret that the negotiations between
tlio provincial agent at Ottawa and the
Canadian Pacilic Railway Syndicate
respecting the construction of tho
island railway have come to naught
The Syndicate doclino to take hold of
tlio work for the land subsidy offered
by the sfmJenimeiit. Whon the petition
to tho Queen was adopted we expressed
grave fears that tho olfect would bo to
injure tike cause it was intended to
promote. The result of that petition
is now before the emmivy.—Colonist.
!t It is the impression that tlie Pro-
•metal Government and their Agent
t Ottawa have succeeded in Idling the Island railway, at least in
o far as the C. P. R. Syndicate ii
oncernod.
In a recent trial at Toronto, the
ueition of insanity being raised by

Coal and jjIlon. —Tho Winnipeg
correspondent of the London Free
Pees: gives a lon*^ and vory interesting
account of Mr. Peter Grants explorations of the Souris coal aud iron fiolds
—a stretch of country 100 miles wide
and 1,000 miles in length. Coal and
iron are found in alternate layers with
an occasional division of rod clay. Tho
veins of coal are muuh thicker than
tho iron and increase in thickness as
they descend, from six inches to five
feut. Mr. Grain, who is an export and
an authority on these minerals, describes this coal lis vory rich and especially adapted for ihn use of locomotives and for something purposes.
It is the same as Scotch coal. The
iron is of tho hematite variety and of
the richest, description and practically
inexhaustible.

Taking Tiikm Away.—-On Saturday afie noon Mr. M. Gillanders (the
brother) and Mr. John By dor (the
brother-in-law of the late Mr. W. L,
Gillanders) arrivod from Chilliwhack
for the purpose of conveying to thoir
desolated homes the inorial remains of
tlio two lamented inun who, iu attempting to cross the river exactly a week
before, to tho very limn*, lost their
lives. Quite a procession of citizens
accompanied the remains to the river.
It will bo soon by reference to a card
in another column how the sympathy
manifested and kind offices rendered
by the people of Now Westminster
upon this sad occasion aro appreciated
by the afflicted relatives of deceased.
We hope it may he many a long year
before there shall bo occasion for a
similar manifestation of sympathy.

In Memoriam.—Mnry-Strcot Methodist Church was packed ou Sunday
evening, the services having special
reference to the lamentable death of
Mr. Lewis and Mr. Gillanders. The
choir sangaunppropriateauthem, which
it is hardly necessary to say was very
effectively rendered. The preacher, in
the courso of his discourse, alluded to
the history and usefulness of tho departed, and to tho fact of their prepared -
ness for tho great aud sudden change.
Touching reference was made to tlio
home associations, and an earnest and
fooling appeal was made for the prayers nnd sympathies uf the congregation
on behalf of tho bereaved families,
while there was duo recognition of the
deop sympathy of tho community at
largo, as evinced in the universal sorrow, the energetic search for the bodies,
tho respect shown to thoso bodies, and
tho large attendance at theso memorial
services.-
The Island Railway.—The Colonist publishes the following dispatch
from Montreal, dated the 3rd inst.
The syndicate have finally declined to
build tho island railway. Thoy say
thoy have been mat in a spirit of niggardliness and Mliherality by the British Columbia government, whom they
also accuse of a want of business

Trade of Burrard Inlet.
Wo have to thank Isaac Johns, Esq.,
of H. M. Customs, Burrard Inlet, for
returns showing tho shipping trade of
that port for the past year. We can
only make room for the following abstract: During the year thirty-six ships,
lumber laden, cleared for places beyond
sens, as follows: For Sydney, 8; for
Melbourne, 7; for Shanghai, 0; for
Valparaiso, 4; for Iqr.que, 3; for Adelaide, 2: for London, 1; for Capo Town,
1; for Port Natal, 1; for Yokahama,
1. The aggregate tonnage of these
vessels was 29,261 tons. Of these
thiviy-six vessels, nineteen received
thoir c.rgocs from the Hast-iug's Mills
nnd seventeen from tho Moodyvillo
Mills. Their aggregate cargoes consisted of 18,937,800 feet of rough lum
ber; 2,423,20" foot dressed lumber;
117 spars; 170,426 fence pickets; 1
002,250 laths; 090,000 shingles; 300
cases salmon; 24 naif-barrels uohichuns;
10 bbls. fish oil. These figures do not
include any of tlie domestic trade,
which would probably double the
shipping. They simply cover the foreign trade of the single port for the
year 1881. It is proper to mention in
ihis connection that, owing to the
scarcity of shipping and depression iu
tbo lumber marl:cia, iho trade full very
much below the syerago last year; but
those in tho business look forward
hopefully to the approaching nonsuit.
Dlsiisiroiis ftitiinwiiji
On Saturday afternoon, a pair of
horsos, belonging to Mr. W. B. Towu-
seud, attached to a light waggon, having been left untied on Cunningham
street, ran away. Turning down
Douglas street, thoy ran at a terrific
rate, so that on reaching Front street
it was impossible for them w make the
turn, and they went clear into the
river, carrying the waggon with them.
The water has a depth of aiitiuc thirty
feet whore they ivent in, Mid waggon
end horses disappeared from view, remaining so. Tackle was brought and
made fast tu tho hind end of the waggon, and ifc took a great strain upon
the ropo to bring it away. When it
did come it was mii horses, the polo
having broken, releasing the doubletrees. The theory is that, going to
the bottom head foremost, tho pole
stuck fast in the clayey bottom, thereby impaling the horses m that it was
impossible for them to come to the
surface. The luiforfliiii'te animals
wore recovered some time after. Tho
seam was a valuahlo one, and much
tyinpatliy is felt for Mr. Towhsend.
Old Government Hou;c<
The gay scene presented on Monday
night reminded one of old-time festivities. Tho gentlemen composing
the Bbftff of C. P. R. Engineers at pro-
sent domiciled there took tills community by surprise Tlio Arrangements
wero very ooiuploto, the splendid old
ball-room looking as well as it did in
the heyday of the Seymour regime
Supper wits laid in the centre room,
tho same which iu General Moody's
Lime, was used rs a sitting room, and
nothing that could contribute to tho
comfort aud enjoyment of the guests
was wanting, Notwithstanding the
inclemency of the weather, tint ut tendance was largo, and uvorywhere one
hears the enter-jihitneiit spoken of iu
terms of the highest praise. The C.
P. R. Engineers may well be satisfied
with the result of their effort to entertain the people of the "Royal'City,"
for thoy did it right royally,
ISiirnu-rtliilct Items.
Both mills are in full blast.
The Rowland Hill arrived Monday
for Hastiug's Mill. There are now
loading at this mill thb Sari of Elgin
and Blackmail, At Moody's the French
vessel Avener and tho Zonard aro taking in lumber.
Tho Dorset, Capt Couves, the discipline on whose ship is "equal to that
of the best ordered family,"sailed Tuesday. He will bo missed liy many. On
arrival hore he informed Capt Smith
of the Ft in White that he had prayed
for a fair wind on coming across, and
had got it. Rut said Capt. Smith with

On motion ,of Coun. Haslam, seconded by Coun. Deane, a committee,
consisting of Councillors Deane, Elliott, and Haslam, was appointed fur
tho purpose of having the accounts of

On motion, the Board of Works
were instructed to have desk accommodation mado for the Clerk, and a room

Management of ('onceiis.
(CnrroBpoaikmcouf tlio Urithli Culm-iuta-i.)
It appears strange that tho Press
should not remind those managers of
Church concerts of their incompetency.
They sell tickets of admission, receive
them at the door, and leave you to
find a seat as best you can. Well,
you find a seat aud settle down iu it.
There are four managers strutting
round with a load of programmes on
tlieir arm, but if you ask them for
one the answer is stippped out, "They
are for the ladies." After awhile a
consequential looking individual, with
his head thrown back no that it brings
his nose and the organ of self-esteem
on a horizontal line, walks up to you
and orders you out of that seat in
presence and hearing of the whole
audience, informing you that it is a
reserved seat, after refusing you a
programme, tho only means of knowing there was such a thing as a
reserved seat. When asked to find a
seat, he tells you, "Go and look for
one." Now it would be much pleas-
iinter if ticket-holders were shown to
their proper places, instead of being
ordered out by such consequential
up-stavts. A. N.
Langley Soiree*
(Corvcs'in-iiiffiico of tiiu IliKIsh Columbian.)
Our soiree came off last evening with
groat eclat Financially and otherwise,
it was a success, exceeding tho most
sanguine expectations of its promoters.
In tho first place we wero favored by
tho weather. The evening was fair
and clear and mild, and the roads for
sleighing purposes wero everything
that could havo boon wished. At 7
o'clock, the hour at which a tempting
and substantial tea was served by nn
efficient band of young men, the
School Hoime, which was tastefully
decorated for tlie occasion, was completely filled with peoplo from the
liuigley district, together with considerable contingents from Matsqui
and Muil Bay. It was computed that
upwards of one hundred wore present
—old nnd young, tho hoary head and
the child of tender age going to swell
'he assembly. Rev. Alex. Dunn occupied the Chstr. Your absence was
much regretted; but nf course tho present danger in crossing the river was
sulfieient to account for your non-
attendance. Mr. Holding." who was
tho only speaker besides tho Chairman, succeeded iu no ordinary manner
in entertaining tlie audience by a racy
and vigorous -speech, admirably combining thy gravo and tlio gay, tho serious and i lie amusing. Humorous
readings and recitations wore given in
happy stylo by Messrs. llawlison,
Slugatt, and MeDougall, A choir,
under t'io leadership of Mr. McKee,
sang sin table pieces of music at inter-
Is. Miss Norris presided at the organ, and both she and Mrs. J. Johnston delighted tho company with several songs, rendered with admirable
taste and feeling. Messrs. McKee and
Underwood also snng several popular
songs, which were well received. The
Chairman, in contrasting tho state of
Langley to-day with that of Langley
six years ago. said that an unmistakable improvement lutd set in; that
whilo parties holding opposite sentiments still existed, the old bitterness
and rancour and hate, fed by ever re-1
ourrlng law-suits, hud well nigh disappeared; that the cure had been
effected partly by tho loss of old blood,
partly by the infusion of now life, and
partly, it was to be hoped, by the
power of Christian inriuonces. At the
close, Mr, Innes expressed his great
gratification nt seeing such a large and
happy gathering, and hoped that good
and only good would result from it.
Votes of thanks to singers, speakers,
A*c, brought the proceeding!* of tho
first soireo on Langley Prairie tu a
c!ose, at a littlo past 10 o'clock.
Lcnglej, Feb. 1,18lV>.
reach land ou south side of south arm
of Suswap lake can be done cheaply;
thence twenty miles west, coasting
hike, und round head at mouth of Salmon river; thence right miles north,
still on lake shore; thence over divide
to main lake; thence along lake, short
river and small lake to South Thompson valley. From Columbia to Mr.
Chase's place there is very little land
fit for anything but lumbering, fishing
and bunting, and very probably mining, although bo far nothing has been
diScoVored. From Mr. Chase's to
Jtttililoops the traveller never tires
looking in every direction; every look
inspires one with happiness and gratitude. It is destined to bo a home for
thousands who can retire from thu
busy strife and enjoy life, when in
other clinics life would  be a burden.
Tho air and water arc both pure and
invigorating, and the scenery charming. This may he the route adopted;
but I think thero are other reasons iu
favor of the following route, wliich
diverges south from a point on Eagle
Pass twelvu or fourteen miles west
from Big Eddy on Columbia river.
From this point on Eagle Puss there is
a pass loading south fifteen or twenty
miles to a lake, This pass, I learn, is
easy. From head of lake to here, be
ginning of settlement, and thence to
Kauiloopa, I uin sure is easily prepared for tho iron horse. 1 believe
this route may bo a few miles longer;
hut thou there is somo country worth
tapping before reaching South Thompson river. There is a largo tract of
productive soil within easy reach of a
railway passing through here; thence
by Salmon River Pass to the charming sights and air of the famous Grand
Prairie, whore there is room for several more happy and prosperous families, if they get a railway through
there. Besides benefitting theso settlements thero are the widely scattered
settlements of Okunagaii which have
long suffered in consequence of their
inland situation; these ull would benefit by the railway coming so near them.
With a climate so excellent and a soil
producing this year fifty bushels of >
wheat to tho acre, tit to make extra
Hour, give Okauagau an outlet either
by canal, which can easily bo accomplished, or by railway, which would
serve'better ends, nnd wonders must |
follow.
Anothor matter might be agitated
which, I believe would help very
many, and that is to opou and construct a wide tn.il from here to Bow
river, so that our stock raisers might
benefit by the vory promising markets
iu the Bow river, Saskatchewan, and
Manitoba countries. I think the distance is not over three hundred miles,
by tho Indian trails, to tho east side
of the Rockies. The Columbia river
jus to lie crossed twice, and what other
streams thero may be I cannot say. A
practicable trail through from here
would give a chatico for people not
only to go east with stock, but other
(o conto west iu search of gold. Why
compel explorers lo come south by
Colville, several hundred miles round,
or send our discoverers much farther,
when a short cut can he mado. Our
cattle princes, the railway kings, and
both our Jocal and Dominion parli;
ments should see to this matter.
Yours truly,
A. L. Fortune.

Editor Columbian.— We wish your
British Columbian much success.
We need an independent paper that
will inform and educate the people,
free from the baneful trammels of
party politics. In a thinly scattered
community like British Columbia it is
difficult for a paper to live and not
side with one party or another. If the
public would study their interests and
the happiness of the following generations, they would support those papers
aud journals the contents of which
tond to enlighten and euoble our race.
Believing that you tako an interest
in all parts of our province, I will
therefore solicit your attention, and 1
hope your aid, in drawing the attention of the public and tho 0. P. R,
Syndicate to the following subject,
namely, the railway route across the
mountains. It appears to he the intention of the Dominion Government
and the oarnest desire of the C. P. R.
Syndicate to adopt a southern route,
instead of the once favored lino by
Edmonton, Jasper Pass, aud North
Thompson. In 71 tho Eagle Pass was
surveyed and found suitnble. If the
engineers succeed in finding a route
from Row river to Eagle Pass thoy can
easily locate aline thence toKamloops
or Savons Ferry, Tho Eagle Pass is
good.    Tho bridging

REPLY.
Gentlkmi-n—
I have much pleasure in acceding to
your request conveyed to mc in your
requisition, that 1 would allow myself
tone riominnted as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a Representative to fill the scat now vacant in the
House of Commons, It" I should be
elected to fill this honorable position,
I will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that my future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when I had the honor of representing you in the Legislative Council
of this Colony. If elected, 1 will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
1 will urge upon the'Government
the necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, now'held in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show P>e C venv
meat the benefit which would be derived from the extend n of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mankind, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As British Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I_ will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
material required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries.
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation nf a Commercial Federation of
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
ihelr mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, it will receive
my earnest support.
Owing : the transitory state of the
Dominion, v..any new questions will
undoubtedly arise; in .dealing Wfth
these, I will see that the interests ot"
my constituents are protected.
I am, Gentlemen,
Vdlir OtkMifcnt' Servant,

LOVE AND GREEK.
(Continued.)
David had looked ill and miserable
in the morning, and refused to join
them in the drive. When they proposed to put it off, so that he night be
able to accompany them, he seemed
bo unnecessarily angry that they decided to leave him, thinking that perhaps solitude was what he wanted.
Amy was longing to comfort him,
and yet she felt angry with him too,
for he did not even look at her.
When they had started she tried to
rouse herself to take an interest in
the sudden changes from richly wooded hills to barren heath, and to be a
lively companion; but it was not easy,
and tho effort was not very successful.
Her thoughts would go back to
David, and his face would come before
her with its saddest expression and
the wistful look in the eyes that made
her heart ache. She had a wild longing to jump out and get back to him,
and then a thought suddenly came into
hor head which made tho color rise to
her oheoks and tier heart beat faster.
What was it 1 She was ashamed to
look it in the face, and so she suddenly
began to be very talkative; but tho
fit of scorning gayety did not last long.
As they drove home again after the
horses had rested, the thought came
back to her. Tin's timo it mado tier
bo pale that Mrs. Dalrymple wrapped
her up in shawls, thinking she had
caught a chill.
Whon they reached tho inn it was
six o'clock. The landlady, who was
at the door, said:
"If you please, sir, Mr. David has
gone to Inverness by the five o'clock
boat. He asked mo to give you this
letter."
When Amy heard this it seemed as
if a cold hand had seized her heart.
It was all that she could do to keep
from falling. Mrs. Dalrymple noticed
it, and for one moment her confidence
in her own triumphant genius failed
her, aud a fear came over her that she
had caused some terrible mischief.
But tho letter gave a simple enough
explanation of his going.
For some days his arm had been
giving him great pain, and ho lu.d
thought best to go to Inverness, now
that his pressing work was over, aud
havo it s|ieu to. He said nothing
about when he meant to return; but
asked them all to excuse tho manner
of his leaving.
This, to a certain extent, satisfied
Mr. aud Mrs. Dalrymple; but Amy,
thinking of the scene of tho previous
evening, and of all his behavior toward
her, became at once convinced that he
never meant to come back. It was
vory terrible to her; sho tried hard,
however, to hide her trouble. Fortunately, tho long drive gave her an
excuse for feeling fatigued, and she
went early to bed—but not to sleep.
Sometimes she thought: "How foolish I am! of course ho will come back."
At others she was perfectly certain
that he never meant to seo her again.
If ttiat were so Amy ought to have
felt very angry with him; sho could
not feel anything but Borrow, for sho
was suro he loved her; and, if so, ho
too must be suffering. She was conscious of an absurd wish to find him
nnd console him for trouble whieh
was all of his own making,
Sho was not tu bo envied; but—
neither was he.
Toward morning exhausted nature
triumphed, and Amy fell into a sound
Bleep. When she awoke the sun was
shining brightly, and everything seemed
bo cheerful that it was impossible to
take the gloomiest view of things.
In the afternoon, as thoy were returning from an expedition to tho
ruined castle, it was suggested that
David might have driven over from
Inverness, as the distance was only
fifteen miles. He had not come, however, and Amy's spirits fell somewhat.
Next day, ns Mrs. Dalrymple was
feeling out of sorts, it was arranged
that her husband should remain with
her in the early part of tho day and
go out fishing afterward. Thus Amy
was freo to spend some hours out of
doors.
Now her favorite walk hud always
been in the direction of tlie Falls; but
this morning, when she stood for a
few minutes iu the porch looking up
and down the road as if undecided
which way to go, she finally went to
the left und walked toward the loch.
This road led first to the landing pier,
and then along the side of tho loch to
Inverness.
On her left were steep hill Rides
thickly carpeted with purple heather,
The owner of theso hills had evidently
been replenishing his purse at tho expense of the wood, and the white
roots of the recently cut trees btight-
•ned the dark hill side. To the right
was a sloping bank leading down to
the loch, aud separated from the road
by a stone wall nearly four foot high.
For the most part, ono could only got
bright glimpses of tho rippling waters
of Loch Ness through the trees; but
thoro wero occasional breaks, and
Amy often stopped to enjoy the view.
When she had walked about two
miles, sho came to u little mountain
stream whieh, having succeeded in
descending by modest leaps from tlio
top of tho hill, found itself confronted
by an inexorable rock. Soohig that it
would bo useless to attack it in a
straightforward way, the stream had
resolved to get around it, ond had divided its forces in order to do this the
more effectually, The small bodies of
water wero decidedly astonished to
iind themselves after a short journey
angrily precipitated into a pool about
twenty feet below. When thoy had
recoverod themselves they had to subdue their pride, and crawl miserably
across tho dusty road. Those that escaped, however, soon danced for joy to
find themselves with their glittering
array of cousins in the loch. Feeling
thirsty, Amy tried to catch somo of
the falling drops, but could not manage it; so she clambered up the bank
at the side, and found a deep pool
behind the rock, where tho wators
rested a little to take counsel together.
Having quenched her thirst, she lay
down on the heather, which made a
vary comfortablo couch, and watched
a little fish that had somehow got into
the pool and seemed to bo its only
tenant, She wondered whether or not
it ever grew tired of its cool retreat,
and felt inclined to yield .to the temp
tations of the eager drops and go forth
in search of adventures.
The walk seemed to have made
Amy forget her fears; but suddenly
she looked up and listened intently,
while the color rose to her cheeks.
Tho sound of wheels draws near, coming from the direction of Inverness;
she gets up quickly, and places herself
so that she is almost hidden by the
rocks, but can look down into the
road. Can it be? As the horse's
head becomes visible she gazes down
eagerly. There are four ladies in tho
carriage. Amy becomes conscious
that her heart is beating wildly, and
that she is terribly disappointed—she
sinks down on the heather, trembling
and ashamed. The stream continues
iu vain its affectionate murmur—it has
no longer power to soothe her.
That afternoon; whon Amy was
reading aloud to Mrs. Dalrymple, she
found it dillicult not to break down.
Mrs. Dalrymple noticed tho tears in
her voice, but said nothing. She
drew her own conclusions, however.
The result was tho following conversation with John when he roturned
triumphantly with ono half - pound
trout:
"We must do something about
David. Cannot you go to Inverness
and induce him to come back ?"
"No, Emily; you must remember
that I refused to be your accomplice.
All I promised was neutrality."
(iBe serious, John. It is no joking
matter now. I am anxious for Amy's
Bake."
"Has she told you anything!"
"No; that is just the worst part of
it, I do not know what has passed
between them, and of course it is a
delicate matter for a proud girl liko
Amy to talk to mo about."
"My idea was that a woman always
confided theso things to any other
woman who happened to be near
her."
"Yes, but you forget that I am
David's relation,"
"That would malco a difference, certainly. How would it do, now, if I
were to disguise myself as a woman
and do the sympathising confidante 1
I should like the part, What a fool
David is! Amy is far too nice a girl
to be sacrificed to his obstinacy. I
wonder what makes her liko him. He
is much older than she is, and, though
ho is my brother, ho is hardly an
Adonis—nor even ,1 Hercules."
"But then, John, Amy is not quite
like other girls."
After thinking a littlo, John said
earnestly:
"Look here, Emily—I'm really as
eager about this as you; but take my
advice. Give him a week, and then I
shall write to him. Tu interfere with
him sooner would bo dangerous."
"Saturday and Sunday passed wearily enough for Amy. Even on Monday there was no news, but on Tuesday morning there was a letter to
John, in which David referred vaguely
to somo intended journey; but still
said nothing about his return to Drtnn-
nadrochit.
Now, one of David's peculiarities
was that every now and then, after
having left his friends lor a long time
iu ignorance us to bin whereabouts, he
would write to them from Egypt, Palestine, or somo other far distant laud
to wliich his studies had attracted him;
bo these dark hints of his with regard
to travelling alarmed Mr. and Mrs.
Dalrymple.
Amy's cheeks had already lost the
bloom for which thoy hud all praised
the mountain air; but as she heard
tliis letter read sho grew still paler,
und her lips were compressed as if in
pain, for sho, too, was aware of David's peculiarity. She had been trying
herd to be brave during the suspense
of the last two or three days, but her
philosophy did not avail her as it had
done in her earlier trials. Then her
troubles had been inevitable. Nothing that she could have done would
havo altered the courso of events, All
that then happened to her had evidently been determined by implacable
destiny, and she had only to resign
herself lo sutler.
But now it was different. Resignation did not seem the only course.
Thoro was room for action on her ■
part, nnd it was the struggle going on
between her pride and love that made
her look so ill. At times, when tho
tone of his voice und the expression
of his faco were moat present to her,
sho felt perfect assurance of his hive,
and the question aroso within her,
Should she give him somo sign that
ho possessed hers? Could she do it ?
If she answered "Yes," and begun to
think out a letter to him, there rushed
in an army of doubts. What if bIio
should be mistaken I After all, her
imagination might havo deceived her.
She had perhaps misinterpreted the
meaning of his looks and tone. After
tho arrival of tho lottor tho struggle
was intensified, aud was almost more
than she could bear.
On Thursday morning she sat down
at a little tabic in her room and tried
to write. Half a dozen notes wero
written and torn up. Two hours iiud
passed, und yet it was not done. At
last, having sat for half an hour with
''Dear Mr. Dulrymple" on the sheet
before her, sho gave it up in despair.
The only words that rang in her ears
wore—"Como back."
Outside it was a wild day, and Amy,
who had always liked being out in a
high wind, suddenly started up, seized
her hat and jacket, and rushed out,
feeling that she must bo alouo and in
the midst of tho storm.
Tho maid servant gazed wonderingly
after her, as she almost ran past the
few houses of the village, and turned
as usual toward the Falls. Tho trees
tossed and crcukud as the wind roared
through thom, in sympathy with the
surging billows of thought that made
her brain whirl. Sho hardly paused nn
instant till she had reached that summer house where so short a timo beforo life had for a moment seemed so
full of peace. The contrast was ton
bitter. Sho threw herself down on
her knees, rested her head on the
rough seat, and sobbed.
After somo discussion with his wife,
John Dalrymple despatched the following characteristic note'
"Dbak David: Don't be it fool and
run off to the other end of nowhere
without saying good-by to your friends.
Emily and I are well. Amy line been
ill ever since you left; she seems to
miss her daily dose of Greek. Tastes
differ. You had better come back.
Yours. John."
