The eighty-third meeting of the
British siul Foreign Bible Society
was held on the 5th inst. in Exeter
hull. The attendance was not so
large as usual. Tn the report quite
a lengthened contrast was made between the condition of the society
in 1836 and in 1886, The income
had risen front £100,000 to £250,-
000, the issue of Bibles from 600,-
000 to 4,000,000. In 1836 the
cheapest Bible cost two shillings,
now it can be had for tenpence, and
while fifty years ago tbe cheapest
New Testament was sixpence, it is
now one penny, The total number
of Bibles issued since the society
commenced was 112,253,547. The
Archbishop of Canterbury, President of Wesleyan Conference, and
other distinguished persons were the
speakers,—Globe,
We cannot affect lo feel much
regret at the mobbing of Mr.
O'Brien. Ruffianly conduct is always to be deplored; but the agitator himself set the example of ruffianly conduct to his assailants when
he proclaimed his intention to bunt
the governor-general from one end
of Canada to the other. He would
not have done that in the way he
himself was hunted about the streets
of Toronto; but was this method
loss manly than the wilful lies and
slanders that he, knowing them to
be so, proposed to use? Mr. O'Brien
is one of those men that can feel no
insult less material than a knock'
down blow, and we cannot regret
that he has received one. W« do
not for a moment excuse his assailants; but, while condemning the
instrument, we cannot but regard
th. punishment at well-deserved.—
Tk Week.
And now if the awe-inspiring
deputation, whioh lately visited Ottawa, is not able to prevent disallowance, the Winnipeggere intend
to build a road in spite of the government or any other man. They
will hare. Bailway Day, just as
they have an Arbor Day. Even
women and children, moved by a common enthusiasm, will turn out with
spades and picks. They will dig up
that prairie amid the Dying of flags
and booming of the Winnipeg field
artillery. They will lay the rails
down to the twenty mile limit, and
beyond it, to the very boundary
line, and then they will plant a battery at the terminus and defy the
world. If th. government make
even a mild remonstrance, they will
raise a revolution to whioh the Saskatchewan rebellion was a mere
straw. They will deluge the raging
Red river with blood.—Grip.
Th. debate! in the Dominion Parliament deserve more attention than
is ordinarily paid to them by Amer
lean readers, A speech of one of
the Prince Edward's Island members
on Monday, for example, contains a
very useful hint for legislators in
Washington. Mr. Welsh, in the
name of the maritime provinces,
clamored for reciprocity of trade and
free access to their natural market—
the United States. He denounced
the treaty of Washington, and insisted that reciprocity was the only
policy that would satisfy the provinces. The fisheries question must
be kept open, he said, until a fair
reciprocity treaty can be negotiated,
Reciprocity is the chief end of Dominion politics, Ontario desires it
a. ardently as the fishermen of Nova Scotia and the formers of Prince
Edward's bland. It is the one
thing which the Queen's subjects in
North America demand with one
voice; and they expect the United
States to favor their wishes, although
experience has proved unerringly
that reciprocity is a one-sided bar-
Sin that is far more profitable to
nada than to the United States.
It is a serious mistake for American
legislators or journals to encourage
tin provinces to hope for commercial without political union. Those
provinces demand ill the commercial
advantages which they would have
if they were incorporated a. states
in the American union, and many
of their public men fancy that reciprocity will be granted again, as it
has been in the patt, from an excess
of generosity and good nature on
the part of American legislators.
Importunate applicants like Mr.
Welsh need to be reminded that
annexation and reciprocity an not
to be divorced, and that th. commercial and political advanhgonof
union are irrevocably bound together.—N. Y. Tribune.
Worms derange the whole system.

ANOTIIKR   INSTAIHSKT.
Loiioos,' June 7.-The Times this
morning publishes another instalment of
the Parnellismnml crime article opposite
its leader page. It prints a fac simile of
the tenth page of the Irish World of
New York of February 16th, 1884, and
also a portion of Patrick Ford's address,
published in the same Issue. The publications are accompanied by sn explanatory article describing the various fundi
mentioned and fate of men connected
therewith. In an editorial on the subject the Times says: "The whole conspiracy, whether carried on hy metly-
mouthed gentlemen who sat at the London ilimicr tables o.- by those who organize arson and murder, is one and indivisible. It is paid out out of the sunt
purse, worked by the same men, directed
to the same ends and inspired by ont
universal hatred of England and a determination to bring about, if possible, a
complete separation between England
and Ireland,

Baltimore, Juno 7.—When Cardinal Gibbons arrived here the streets,
loading to tlio depot were thronged
with people. Mayor Hodges, the
members of the city council, judges of
the courts, aud the commissioners received the cardinal on the part of the
Catholic societies. The cardinal wat
received by Charles A. Bonaparte, the
trustees of the cathedral and a commission of the clergy. He wat escorted tn the cathedral by a procession
formed to do honor to his high office.
When the head of the column hid
reached the cardinal's palace there wat
a halt and the cardinal with the clergy
nnd guard of honor entered the building. There the cardinal was invested
with his official robes and, returning to
the street, the procession moved to the
main ontranco of the cathedral, when
there wat a formal reception by Mont.
McCalgan, and the service for cardinal's reception wu performed for the
first time in Baltimore. At tho dot.
of the religious service the cardinal returned to the palace .nd reviewed the
procession.
MORE EVICTIONS.
Di'blin, June 7. Evictions at Bo-
dyke were continued to-day. Tenant
HcNamara, who was behind in his
rent, defended his house, but tbe bailiff broke a hole in the wall between
the logs, and boiling water wu thrown
through the hole at the evicting force.
Entrance was made through the opening and a fight ensued. The tenants
were evicted and afterwards arretted.
Bailiffs charge tenants with having
thrown vitriol upon them, but this is
denied. Tenant Murphy made a timi-
lar resistance.

Niw York, June 7.—Cardinal Gibbon, took th. train this morning for
Baltimore. A member of the party,
accompanying hit eminence, said that
tho cardinal wat not willing ot protent

WHEAT PROSPECTS.
San Francisco, Juno 7.—Tho secretary of the Produce Exc?iangc has
collected report! at to the condition of
wheat up to June lit, throughout California. The weather during May was
favorable until the 27th, when the dry
weather, which prevailed for three
days, caused sumo damage, estimated
in certain sections at 2D per cent, and
in others nominal. A summary indicates that the northern portion of the

Senator Mclnnes hut introduced
a bill in tho Canadian senate to coin}
pel aU railway companies in the
Dominion to furnish all members
of the senate or commons, members
of the provincial governments nnd
legislatures, and. judge, of the
supreme and exchequer courts with
annual Ipse passes over their roads.
Referring to thi. singular bill the
Ottawa Free Pre- tan at first sight
"it might be supposed that thi. was
merely a selfith icheme on the part
of some of our legislators to secure
dead-head passe, on the railways."
We must confess it looks like that,
but the Ottawa paper assures ua it
ii no tu'eh thing. It is well known
that nvuiy members of both houses
have received fro. passe, from the
Canadian Pacific and other railways
and travel free from one end of the
country to the other. At the same
time these people are paid large sums
every session for "mileage," these
sum. being supposed to recoup them
for- travelling expenses. On what
principle of Justus, then, do these
people propose that, by act of parliament, thoy shall be carried over
all Canadian roads free of costl
There it no good reason why exceptional legislation should be undertaken with a view to relieve theso
classes from expenses for which
they have explicit and ample com-
peniation now out of the publio
chert. We presume Senator Moln
net aim. at overcoming the prevailing oustom of granting passes to
persons who make or enforce th.
laws, and if this ia hii object it is a
very proper one, But why not come
itraight at the evil and pass a law
making it a misdemeanor for any
railway company to oiler or any
legislator or judge to accept a free
psul Thi. would be sensible, and
would meet with public approval,
whif. tbe- measure proposed by
Senator Mclnnes is neither a
proper measure nor wilt it be accep
ted as an honest endeavor to remove
an existing evil. Because some
men (not unatpra) steal, would it
be proper for the legislature to pass
an act legalizing theft!
Dangcn or Ljneh Law.
Lynch law may be classed among
what are known as American institutions, but experience long ago
proved it to be a most dangerous
principle of actio*. It is alway.
best to.rr on the tide of mercy, and
the maxim whioh declare! in favor
of the escape ot 99 guilty perrons
in order to tav. one who is innocent, i. doubtless sound. A fresh
illustration' of the danger ot lynch
law come, to us in a late number of
the Seattle Pott. A few days ago
there wa. telegraphed over the country from Rockville, Missouri, the
story of a horrible outrage perpetrated i upon a young lady at that
place.' Tie next day the supposed
- perpetrator of the outrage was arrested and was fully identified- by
the young lady. Hi. preliminary
examination began at the court
house at Rockville, but before the
proceeding, were fairly under way,
the prisoner fell dead in the court
room, riddled with bullet, from the
revolver, of the brother, of the victim of the crime of which he was
Mound. Probably four people out
ot five who read of these proceeding! in the newspapers uid to themselves that the wretch wu rightly
served, yet it i. now known that
the man who wm thot down without being permitted to tay a word
in hi. own defense wu innocent of
the crime of which he wu charged,
and, what is more, the nth broth-
era could easily have been convinced
of this fact and would have been
•pared the guilt of murdering an
innocent and inoffensive man, if
they h.d not been quite so ready
with their revolvers. A f.w weeks
ago a horrible murder wu committed in California. Two amateur
detective, started on a March for
the murderer. While prowling
through th. wood, they found a man
who antwered tho description of the
criminal in torn, particular, .nd
who, tirey luppoud, night be he.
They o^er^ilrhn totbrow up hit
hand, and lurrtwUs-. Hot knowing who it wi^ jtb.it gave thi. .tart-
ling order or th. occasion of its
being given, th. supposed murderer
naturally declined to comply and
immediately afterward fell dead
with two, riB. bullet, in hi. body.
The amateur detectives were proud
of their feat until somebody discovered tUt the dead man wu a quiet
and inoflenilve rancher who wu
living on a government claim which
he bad recently taken up and who
could have no poulble connection
with the' murder. They then expressed doe rtftofor the occurrence
and were •oiBBVhat grieved by it
until a enToriers jury, after having
viewed a»ttmt\u of the nuMereJ

DIKEGTOHS' ANNUAL REPORT.
Gentlemen-—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to state thtt it will be an utter
impossibility to run tbe hospital free of
dent on the grant just voted by the government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has been attentive in his
duties and reports a large increase in the
number of patients admitted during the
year, shewing also that we have received
patient, from all parts of fie province.
There are a number of incurables in
this hospital, soma of whom were brought
from Victoria hospital years ago. The
sum of |1,000 a year has been voted for n
convalescent horce in Victoria, the last
few years. The Board think, therefore,
that some of these incurables should be
shipped back to Victoria.
■ A great number ot improvements havo
been made during tho year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-houso built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; the
building being old, requires constant re-
pairs, Which entails considerable expend-
inure.
The hospital has been filled to its
utmost capacity during the whole year.
The Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous substriptlons, lists of which
tre annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also the congregations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist and
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, anil the following ladles aud
gentlemen "or old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.
ft. Woods, Major, Lennle, H. Elliot, W.
J. Armstrong, W. B. Townsend, Douglas, Edmonds, J. W. Harvey, Baker, W.
H. Keary, D. Hennessey, Cummings, A.

Convent, tidies W. C. T. U„ Bachelors'
Bill Hatcbery, Messrs. I.B. Fisher, Z. S.
Hall. K. I. Bentlcy, J. 8. McDonnell.
The surgeon's report is appended hereto, aud gives full details of tho work
accomplished for the year.
Tht average cost per day for each resident patient in the hospital, which includes the disbursements on ont-door
patients, Is 07 cents,

SURGEON'S REPORT

herewith present tho report on this Hospital for the year ending .list March, 1887:

The number of Incurables now In the
Hospital Is twelve [121. This large number requiring to be taken care of from
year to year renders It Impossible to make
.number of desirable Improvements In
thi building, owing to thellmlted supply
of funds. I have fntrodneed the table of
residence, to show the people of Blltlsh
Columbia that they all ought to take en
interest In helping ou this Institution,
Which Is Increasing In usefulness every
year, as may be teen by comparing tho
number of Indoor patients of the previous
year -seventy-five (75)—with this year—
ont hundred and three (10.1).
We still require a lot of draining to he
done about and from tbo building. Tbo
floors and walls have been Improved and
tbe new wash-room Is n great addition to
the comfort of the place.
I have great pleasure In thanking a
number of friends of the Hospital for present, of clothes, old linen, pictures, books
snd papers. Again I have to thank tho
•toward, Mr. Charles Dlgby, for his constant attention to the cleanliness of tho
hnlldlngand his kindness and attention
to the wants of the sick nnd his readiness
In carrying out uli my directions. Before
closing this report I must offer my si neero
thanks to tho medical gentlemen who ho
kindly offered their assistance to myself
whenever required during tbe past yenr.
lam Yours Faithfully.

TREASURER'S REPORT.
In presenting Ihe accounts for the past
year, the Treasurer ben to call attention
to the fact that the outlay has been rigidly
scrutinised, In whioh he hat been ably
assisted by the Steward, Mr. Dlgby. There
seems little prospect of any reduction of
expenditure. You will notice that tho
subscriptions have been liberal and havo
been1 a great asslstanoo In keeping the
Institution free ot debt, lt is to be regretted thtt the Government have .reduced
the grant to the Hospital from IWOO to IV

falling off. Ireland and Germany
have disposed of their surplus population for the present. Russia, Austria,
Hungary, and Italy show an immense
increase. Of the new-comers the Russians present rather the best appearance, being tall, vigorous and with an
air of resolution. They are chiefly
from the grain-growing regions of the
Black Sea.-ff.T. Witness.
An Entertaining Entertainment.
The Calgary JfleroW says that while
King Kennedy's alight of hand work
at that place waa hampered by lack of
accommodation and appliances, his
ventriloquism "made up for everything.'' It goes on to observe: "Con-
venations were given between as many
as four different voices at once, and
a comio sketch between several big
dolls elicited much mirth from tho audience. The 'distant voices' were exceptionally good, a dialogue being
carried on between the performer, a
man in the cellar and another away off
in the distance, whose voice was only
just distinguishable. Master Ben
Gouin, aa usual, waa to the front, ho
had a paper rammed down his throat,
quarter! pulled out of his hair, eyes
and earn, and laat but not least, the
performer carried on a conversation
with an individual who declared he
wat intide Matter Ben't stomach; by
the time he got off tho stage he could
not hive sworn that he wasn't. The
performance doted with au exhibition
of sealed letter reading, which was
very cleverly done, and tho audience
dispersed well pleased with tho show."
A lady writes: "I was enabled to re-
remove the corns, root .and branch, by
the an of  Holloway's  Corn   Cure.
Others who hove tried it have the suine
experience.'

Temperance Work.
British Columbia Branch of the
Dominion Temperance Alliance.
Following is a summary of the principal business transacted at the third
annual convention, whioh mot in Victoria on 18th May, 1887. The treasurer's report was presented, showing
receipts 812D.U&; disbursements (107.

The president gave the hand of welcome to Rev. Dr. Williams, general
superintendent    of    the   Methodist
ohurch.
report of the executive committee.
The executivo committeo of the B.C.
branch of tho Dominion Allianco for
the suppression of the liquor traffic beg
leave to report as follows:
Your committee have held seventeen
meetings during the year. Upon the
suggostion of the committeo five auxiliaries have been organized, viz: at
Westminster, Victoria, Chilliwhack,
Nanaimo, and Comox. Meetings were
also held at Saanich, Cedar Hill and
Esquimau for the same purpose, but
without accomplishing tho desired object.
Previous to tho late provincial election a circular was sent to each candidate for the legislature, with a view to
ascertaining' whether he would be favorable to amended legislation in reference to tlio liquor traffic:
Sin.—On behalf of tho Auxil
iary of the Dominion Alliance for tho
suppression of the ■ liquor traffic, we
beg to submit to you the following
question, and respectfully request that
you will give a clear and direct reply
to the same, and otherwise express
your views on the subject as may seem
to yn desirable:
Will you, if chosen to represent tho
jibovo, constituency, cordially assist in
securing n thorough revision of the
provincial laws relating to the liquor'
traffic, especially with ,n view to limiting tho number of licenses to he issued;
preventing tliu sale of liquors on Sunday and during certain hours on week
nights; and also providing efficient
machinery for the administrating and
enforcing of such acts as may be passed!
In connection with the foregoing circular, a communication was sent to the
various newspapers of tho province,
setting forth tho necessity of amended
legislation, and stating.1 the leading
points which it is proposed to embody
in such legislation.
In accordance with tho instructions
of the Alliance, tho president and sec-
rotary waited upon the premier of
Canada during his recent visit to Victoria, and presented to him for consideration a serieBof resolutions passed
by the Alliance convention at Westminster, concerning the Indians and
tlio liquor traffic. Tho committee wat
courteously received, the resolution!
read, and prompt action promised. In
'course of time an official communication was received from Dr. Powell,
superintendent of Indian affairs, relative to the above scries of resolutions.
The aforesaid communication practically denies the existence of the evils
complained of by the Alliance.
In carrying out the instructions of
the Alliance regarding the drafting of
a bill for the better regulation of the
liquor traffic, your committee added
tho following to their number: Noah
Shakespeare, Esq., M.P., E. V. Bod-
well, Esq., and S. Gray, Sr„ Esq. The
president and secretary conferred with
the provincial secretary in reference to
amended liquor legislation. Tho hon.
gentleman advised tho Alliance to prepare the draft of a license act, to be
submitted to the government at a
later date. It was resolved to request
an interview with the government and
urge the advisability uf framing an act
corresponding as closely as possible
with the- so-called McCarthy act.
After receiving a favorable reply, the
following members of the executive
waited upon the government requesting them to sanction tho introduction
of a bill for tho better regulation of
the liquor traffic, viz: Rev. D. Fraser,
and Messrs Haughton, Bodwell,
Shakespeare and Gray. The deputation wcro met by tho premier and the
provincial secretary. After n discussion of the chief provisions to be incorporated in the measure, the government promised to give a general sanction to tho introduction of a bill of
this nature, and suggested that the
committee should draw up in detail
the draft of such a bill, to be tubmittod
at a later date. Owing to the limited
time and the legal technicalities involved in the preparation of such a
bill, your committee deemed it advisable to secure the services of Thornton
Fell, Esq., barrister.
In connection with this bill petitions
were circulated throughout the province praying for the three following
provisions, viz: (1.) That the maximum number of licenses issued be
fixod ao ns to boar a certain proportion
to the population. (2.) That licensed
places bo closed on the Lord's Day and
during certain hours of tho week
nights. (3.) That provision be made
for the efficient carrying out of tuch
regulation! nt might bo adopted.
The potitions were returned with
over fifteen hundred signatures, and
along with the bill were laid before tho
legislature, and by them both wero
laid upon the shelf.
The following temperance societies
rosponded to tho call fur funds for the
prosecution of the work of the Alliance, viz: In Westminster—The local
Alliance, 950; Royal Templars, |15;
Good Tomplars, $20. In Viotoria—
Tho Y.W.O.T.U., 813; Good Tem-
S'ars, 810; Royal Templars, ID. In
auaiino—Royal Templars, 810; public meeting collection, 85.
Noah Shakespeare, Esq., M.P., waa
requested to act as our representative
nt tho recent annual Dominion Alliance convention held at Ottawa, Ont.
Thirty dollars was forwarded to Mr,
F. 3. Spenco, the Dominion secretary,
to pay our two annual assessments.
The attention of the Alliance it directed to an amendment to the Municipalities Act, intended to enable one
of our railway companies to secure tho
licensing of grog shops at tho railway
stations in defiance af the wishes of
the pooplo along the line. Thii disgraceful piece of retrogressive legislation is, we believe, without a parallel
on this continent, and ought to be met
by an indignant protest from all loven
of their country,
In conclusion your committee present for the consideration of tho Alliance the following suggestions:
local branches of the Alliance and
other temperance tssooiations where-
fl.) That we urge the organization
of local brtnehes of
other temperance a
ovtr practicable, and increased activity
in the dissemimtion of our principles
by means of tho press, platform and
pulpit.
(2.) That the executive to be appointed be instructed to tend circular!
to ministers of the gospel and other
friendiof temperance, urging increased
attention to queationt of temperance
and social reform.
(3.) Thtt the fritndt of temperance
be requttted to continue the agitation
in favor ot an amended license law.
All of which il respectfully tub-
miitad.
