Wedneaday Evening, Ja.aary S, IMT.
The railways, as common carriers,
have no right to grant differential
rates in favor of one firm more than
another, and we hope the royal commission appointed to enquire into
this shameful prostitution of common privileges, will end in the present system being completely overthrown. Special or differential
rotes mean nothing more or less
than the granting of prerogatives
to certain favorites, to the injury of
the trade.—Montreal Trade Bulletin.
European Complications.
And now there are sanguine predictions that war will begin in
Europe early in the spring. It is
reported that the Ozar is in a bad
way; that he is in a condition bordering on madness; that he is a hard
drinker, and that he is intent on
precipitating a war for the purpose
of advancing on Constantinople.
All these rumors are to be received
with many grains of allowance. Yet
the wheat market has been quickened a little by the prospect of a
European war. Russia is in tho
| market for a loan of 75,000,000
roubles. That is essentially u wur
loan. It is offered in France, or to
French capitalists. But if Russia
precipitates a war in the spring, it
is certain that France will be drawn
into it. In that event the latter
power will need all the financial
resources of her own people to sustain the struggle. Now there are
some financial perils in France. In
fact, the ministry has just been retired from' office on that account.
They asked for more money in view
of European complications. The
only member retained was Gen.
Boulanger, the war minister, who is
supposed to have a better knowledge
of the war resources of France
than any other man who has to do
with public affairs. The London
Times quotes Henri Germain, the
well-known chairman of the Credit
Lyonnais whb has furnished somo
startling figures of the increase of
.expenditures ih the republic in a
time of profound peace. From 1874
to 1882 it (the expenditure) rose
from 2,fl00,000,000f to 3,700,000,-
OOOf. "While the expenses of
France havo been increased by
l,200,000,000f, the budgets of the
five other great powers have been
augmented in the same lapse of
time in a very different manner.
They have been increased by 350,-
000,000f in England, by 200,000,-
OOOf in Prussia, by 550,000,000f in
Russia, by 3BO,000,O00f in Austria-
Hungary, and250,000,000f in Italy."
These expenditures all have reference to the probabilities of war.
Recently tbe German minister of
war, when called upon to explain
the reasons for a much larger expenditure and for a sudden increase
of the army by 41,000 men, said, in
substance, that he apprehended no
immediate danger of war. "Nevertheless," he added "we can scarcely
resist the belief that we are living
in a period when thero is no well-
founded prospect of peace being
preserved, and yet "extreme ur-
genoy" was the plea for the pressure of the army bill. It may be
true enough that the Czar can precipitate war. That has beeu known
all along. He has some grievances.
The least of all, perhaps, is that
Turkey is not paying over just now
the indemnity money exacted in the
last war with Russia, for the good
reason that the former is not able
to meet the demand. Recently the
Russian minister to Turkey was instructed not to press for payment
just now, provided certain concessions would be made to the latter.
What these were is not so clear.
Probably one condition sought was
that if Russia were to invade Bui
garia, and make a further aggressive march, Turkey was not to regard this as an open act of hostility against the Forte. Then conies
thu rumor.tbat Turkey has been
coquetting with. Russia and has
given some sort of assurance of a
greater identity of interests. But
that is only an old diplomatic custom. Turkey wants delay. One
power after another receives assur-
uioo |of the most confidential de
pendence. All the great powers in
turn are invoked to help Turkey in
ier troubles, Russia has once
narched into the Balkan provinces
uid has lightened the yoke of Turk-
sh servitude. For this she has revived no other compensation than
he promised indemnity on the part
f Turkey, which is now little more
han a suspended debt. — S. F.

Wedaesday Evening, January 3, las:.
Eustern papers still como to hand
lilled with magnificent head lines
announcing the great Liberal victory in Ontario. Liberal journals
maintain that this event points undoubtedly to a coming Liberal victory throughout the Dominion,
while Conservatives declare that
there is no'connection between Dominion and provinoial politics at all.
There is one thing certain, tbat
party polities iu the east are run
into the ground, und the sooner tlu),
people begin to perceive the folly of
the party oraze the bettor will it be
for the country,
Tho British cabinet evidently
finds great difficulty in adjusting
the disorganized ministry. It must
be a cold day for cabinets in London when the premier has to telegraph our governor - general, asking him to fill the breach. It is an
evidence of the weakness of the
party which could not be covered
even by the" Marquis of Lansdowne's
acceptance of the offer. But one
will hardly suppose it possible for
the marquis to accept under suoh
circumstances, for there is no probability of the present government
being able for any length of time to
retain office.
And now the Guardian undertakes to read the Hon. Oliver Mowat
a lecture on moral principle! It
also proceeds to show its ignorance
by asserting that ''the taxpayers of
Ontario pay very heavily for the
support of their provincial government." Will our cotemporary mention the rate of taxation imposed
by the provincial government of
Ontario? Would he be surprised to
learn that Ontario's sources of rev
enue are entirely independent of
direct taxation, and that, without
imposing any burden, on the people, and after spending many rail-
lions in subsidising railways and
other publio works, she has a surplus of $6,766,0801 Our ootem-
porary's party prejudices lead him
into many absurdities. In the last
13 years the annual expenditure of
Ontario has increased by $233,314,
t. while the annual expenditure of the
11 Dominion since 1873 has increased
11*21,587,605.   ,
''jA. notice appeared in this paper
oii' Friday and Monday calling attention to the woollen mill lately-
erected in this city. The machinery
for this establishment has been purchased, and is being plnced in tho
building. The company, wo understand, has a considerable amount of
stock still on hand, and as funds
are needed for the equipment of the
factory it is most desirable that our
oitizens who have money to invest
should come forward at once and
take up tbe stock. We believe Mr.
Punch, of Brownville, has put over
$2000 into this concern, and it only
requires about $2000 more to place
it upon a basis where it will be
ready for operation. It is stated as
a fact that a certain citizen of Victoria has made a proposal to the
present company for the removal
of the mill to Viotoria, offering to
take the whole of the machinery
and pay for the building that has
beon erected. The proprietors have
not. entertained that proposal, but
if the citizens of this city and district decline to furnish the necessary capital to perfect the factory
and put it into operation, it is quite
within the range of possibility that
the Viotoria offer may be looked
upon with favor. The provincial
government bonus for a woollen
mill is $3,000, and the city bonus
il $1,000. With $4,000 as a gift,
there should surely be no difficulty
in securing among the people of this
oity and distriot a sufficient amount
to carry out this important work.
The establishment of a woollen
mill is supposed to bring with it
many advantages. As New West-
minster is the centre of trade for
the finest agricultural district in
British Oolumbia it ought to be just
the place for the location of such
in industry. It would be a never-
sufficiently-to-be-lamented disaster if,
through, any lack of energy on the
}>art of the people here, tbis estab-
ishment should be removed elsewhere, Al we an on the prinoipal
river and the principal railway of
the country, there is nothing more
to be wished for in the way of commercial facilities. A woollen mill
at Viotoria oould not be operated as
cheaply 'because Victoria's connection with the railway and the
rirer is lew advantageous, and
because a liberal supply of fresh
water it essential to success. We
know nothing as to the financial
standing of thepresent company, but
We presume the managers will furnish full information on that point
to sny pejrfon seeking " *ith tt riew
to inveatowni. We earnestly hope
this matter will not "be permitted to
escape publio attention; and if individuals enough cannot be found to
take .took in theconoenijit would
be worth while for tie city council
to consider whether it would not be
advisable for the corporation to invert a thousand dollan in the company's itook.

Embezzlement.—Iii the polico court
this morning Alex. R. Dempster was
charged with embezzling thirteen dollars and some cents, the property of
Jas. Rosseau. The complainant is
proprietor of two boot and shoe manufacturing; establishments in this city,
and employed defendant as manager of
one of them, viz., the Oily Boot & Shoe
Store. It is alleged that the books
kept by defendant at this store show
irregularities. Robt. Partridge, accountant, was called to give evidence
for the defence, but shortly aftor the
witness had taken the stand it was discovered that the stove of the court
would not draw and the lire would not
burn, whereupon the .bench out of
sympathy for the feelings of all con-
corned, adjourned the case till Friday.
Meantime the accumulated dirt of
the police court chimney will be cleaned out.

The New Telegraph Use.
Mi-.E. A. Williams,who has superintended the construction ot the Postal Onion
Telegraph Company's lines between
Seattle and thia city, arrived On Monday for the purpose of laying the cable
across the river to connect with tbo
wires at Brownsville. The work will be
undertaken ln a day or two, or as soon
as Superintendent Wilson returns from
Viotoria with some fixings which are required. When that is completed Now
Westminster will bs connected with San
Francisco hy another set of telegraph
wires which will no doubt work u efficiently as that part of the great system
whioh wu tested a f.w days ago,
Hr. Williams aays thero will be no
trouble In keeping the line working
regularly. It is constructed aloqg a good
road ao that when the wire tjeoomea
grounded or a break occurs a repairer
can ride to the scene of the difficulty
ln a short time. Repairers will be
stationed at short intervals and nnder
ordinary circumstances the line will
never be down more than a few hours.
On account ofthe unfavorable weather
at this time.of the year the .construction
of the line has not been aa rapid as wu
intended, but by the 15th inst. lt ia expected to be ready for business. The
telegraph office ln this oity will then be
removed to the railway station, bnt u
the accommodation thero will be altogether too limited for the number of
operators to be employed, another building will soon be required. If another
building Is erected for the purpose,
publio accommodation will probably be
considered and a more central place for
an offloe choaen.

Onr Proposed International
Rallwny.
Mr, Williams, inspector for the Postal Telegraph company, says the people
of Seattle are red hot for u railway between their city and ours, and aro
going to have it. For the past few
months he has been working along the
proposed route and ho has come to the
conclusion that there is enough go jd
country between the mountains aiid
the coast when it has a chance to be
developed to support two railways independent of through traffio which, by
the way, is the point mainly considered by Seattle at presont, the object
being to make that city the competive
point for the Canadian Paoifio and
Northern Pacific railways. The road,
passing, as it would, all .the way
through an agricultural country, would
handle a large amount of produce and
would quickly develop a paying local
traffio. The aeveral partially navigable
streams which it would cross on the
route would also aot as feeders and
form an important consideration in an
undertaking of this kind. The surface
of the country is such as to offer oasy
routes for railway construction.
The Fresh Fish Trade.
PREPARATIONS FOR EXTENSIVE OPERATIONS
THIS SEASON.
Messrs. D. W. Port & Oo. have
leued a piece of ground immediately
west of the Royal Oity Planing Mill
Oo,'s lumber yard, and have let the
contract for the immediate ereotion
thereon of a building suitable for handling fresh fish for the eastern market.
The premises are on Richard  st.,ad-
Joining the ship yard where the stis.
Salle and Glad Tidings were built,and
between the river and the railway.
The building will be 100 feet long by
30 feet wide, and about 20 feet in
height. It will have a capacity for
atoring from 400 to 500 tons of ice,
and alao for freezing and storing 150
tons of fish. As soon as ioe oan be obtained about four or five hundred tons
will be put in this building. If uo
ice can be had conveniently, arrangements aro being mnde for bringing r
supply from up river. Mr. Port lias
with him here all tho implements necessary for cutting and handling the
ice, and his experience will enable
him to secure it at the least possible
outlay. It ia the intention of the firm
to fit up extensive freezing ro'oma in
the building. Those will be arranged
on the most approved plan. As soon
as the building has been completed
and the freezers are ready for operation, an attempt will be made to secure a supply of fish for the essteru
market before tbe run commences in
lhe river. It is believed tbat fish may
be taken without difficulty outside in
the straits during winter. The fish
will be frozen and shipped to Toronto,
where the firm hu an establishment
supplied with freezers, and can be
plaoed on the market u thought beat.
When warm weather comes, fresh fiah
will be shipped daily, packed in ioe,
by express train. When the fish become plentiful in the river, in addition to the daily shipments large
Juantities of them will lie put into tho
reezere snd packed away until the
fall, when they can with safety be
shipped eut as ordinary freight. Mr.
Port states that be expects to send
away about 100 tons of fresh Ash by
express this yesr, and about an equal
quantity frozen. The premises will
be very commodious, and the arrangements for the economical handling of
fish most complete. As the building
is to'be on the edge of the rirer and
will hsve a railway switch on the
other side, there will be no unnecessary handling. The fish will bs taken
directly from the boats into the building at one side, and from tha other
side they will go right into the cars.
Mr. D. W. Port, who is here with his
son Mr, Edward Port, has been dealing in fish now about 31 years, and his
experience is suoh ss to guarantee success in the new venture. Besides experience, his compnny possesses ample
means to carry on tho business largely
and economically. Until lately his
firm had connection with a Buffalo
house, and the company has been
handling from 600 to 800 tons of fresh
fish esoh season. Last spring Mr.
Port visited this city with the objoct
of Introducing Fraser River salmon
Into the eutern market, but the run
here wss late in beginning and he went
to Portland and took a carload of Oolumbia River fiah east. They met
ready ule, and after the opening of
the 0. P. B. hia firm took several
shipments of fresh Fraser River
salmon, put up at the Port Haney establishment. These ventures have
led him to decide on putting up a
permanent establishment for ^business, and he has seleoted this city as
the best place for ita location. He is
confident that he oan lay down British
Columbia aalmon in the east at such
rates u will bring them within reach
of the masses, and thus build up a
permanent trade. Mr. Port will remain here until the establishment hss
been put in thorough working order,
and it will then be left underthe management of Mr. Edward Port, who
will remain permanently. This new
Industry is one of the thinus whioh the
Colombian long avo pointed out u
one of the things which would surely
follow the opening of the O. P. R„
and we are glad it haa been located in
the city and will be under the personal management of such enterprising
and espsriencsd gentlemen.

Wahhinuton, Jan. G.—The aecietary
of Btate has a dispatch from Frederick
Runt, U. 3, consul general at Berlin,
setting forth annoyances to which U. S.
citleens visiting Europe, and especially
Germany, subject themselves by neglect*
ing to procure passports before leaving
this country.
Washington, Jan. 5.—Among the
papers transmitted to the senate wore
three reports from the secretary of war
in response to resolutions of inquiry as
to the change of engineers on improve*
ments at the mouth of the Columbia
river; also, various memorials of publio
bodies In favor of the passage of an inter*
state commerce bill.
Berlin, Jau. 5,—Frankfort, Hamburg, Leipsic, and other* oities of the
German empire ore subject to a so-called
state of seige. Every stranger or foreigner visiting these places Is requested
to identify himself by procuring passports. Ladies are not exempted. Immediately after the arrival of a stranger
the police authorities demand the production of a passport, and if he is not
provided with ono he muBt either procure
one or submit to annoyances, if not a
peremptory onler to leave. No stranger
oan enter the dominions of the Russian
empire without a passport, while in several places in Austria, Italy, and elsewhere similar orders are enforced. Students desiring to enter German universities can be matriculated only upon procuring passports. The latter aro retained by the authorities of the universities
and a ticket of protection of lhe university. After such membership ceases the
passport ib returned to the owners.

San Francisco, Jan. L— Tho body
of Major Robert Beck, who disappeared Dec. 23rd was found floating in thc
bay thiB morning. For somo days before his disappearance Major Beck
was noticed to ba acting strangely.
He had been a sufferer for years from
rheumatism and neuralgia, and it is
supposed tliat he was rendered insane
by his troubles. He wandered away
and drowned himsolf.
Tlie Chicago Times' Ottawa special
says: The company of Canadian and
English capitalists lately formed for
the purpose of constructing a line of
cable betweon Vancouver, B.C., and
Australia is vigorously pushing on the
work. Sandford Fleming, the original
promoter of tho scheme, says the company has been thoroughly organized
and is now ready to proceed with negotiations to begin work. The company has applied to the Imperial government for vessols to conduct soundings and other work from the coast of
Australia, and the matter is now under
consideration of the government.
Fleming thinks there will be no difficulty in getting tho Imperial government either to conduct preliminary
soundings or to supply vessels necessary for the work. Most encouraging
offers of assistance in the way of subsidy have been received from all governments with whose territory it is
proposed to make connection, and tho
matter has at last been placed beyond
the possibility of failure.
Springfield, Ohio, Jan. 4.—Muin-
etingn station was uie scene of a
frightful railroad accident at au early
hour this morning. The Modoc train
from Albany approached the depot an
hour behind time and running at the
rate of about 35 miles per hour, when
within a few rods of the depot 5 of the
0 curs in the train wero thrown from
the track by a broken wheel under the
baggage car. The engine and express
car kept on the track, but the baggage
car was thrown against the engine of a
local west-bound freight which liad
just pulled in. The froight engine
was thrown on its side and completely
wrecked. The baggage car and dny
coach immediately took fire, and were
consumed. When the cars could be
searched the charred remains of a man
burned to a crisp wero found. An
hour later half of the burned corpse of
Mr. Jenks, of Ludlow, was found, and
an unknown body, believed to be that
of a soldier.
Wilkesbahkb, Pa., Jan. 4.—All tho
collieries in this region shipping over
the New Jersey Central railway wore
idle to-day except two, on account of
the strike of rock hands at Fort Town-
Bend, closing out 0000 men and boys
at the mines, 450 at Hanover, 350 at
Bedash, 300 at Bennett, and 500 at
Punish mines, a total of 8100.
London, Jan. 4.—The prorogueing
of parliament to Jan. 27th was gazetted to-day.
Bishop Watterson of the Roman
Catholic diocese of Columbus, Ohio,
has arrived at Venice. He iB going to
Rome.
The cabinet council has been postponed till Saturday. Lord Salisbury's
reconstruction of the cabinet is impeded by jealousies of Goschen. The
whole influence of the Carleton Club
is exerted to persuade Lord Iddlesleigh
and Viscount Cross to remain in office.
Lord Iddlesleigh said he was in ill-
health and unable co sustain the fatigues of the foreign oilice and he will
persist in his determination to retire.
Viscount Cross is undecided as to what
he should do. The only positive result announced to-day is the Earl of
Northbrook's consent to join Goschen's
cabinet. It has not yet been decided
when the portfolios will be givon to
him. The Conservative opposition is
mainly directed against Lord North-
brooks party because he is suspected
of sympathizing with Mr. Gladstone
and partly because he lias been opposed to Lord Salisbury's foreign policy.
When Lord Salisbury waa in tlie Indian office Lord Northbrook resigned
the vice royalty. He differed from
Salisbury regarding Lamar's Afghan
polioy. If Mr. Goschen insists on tlie
nomination of 2 candidates for tho
cabinet the Conservatives propose thc
Marquis of Lansdowne. Gladstone's
letter commenting on Chamberlain's
recent speech was addressed to Sir
Wm. Vernon Harcourt and concluded
with the intimation that tho recipient
could make what uso of it ho liked.
Chamberlain has summoned a private
meoting of the loading members of tho
Radical union to consult on the terms
of a compromise. No party, however,
believes that the conference will result
successfully. Parnellites aro opposed
to compromise and will not accede to
anything short of submission to Mr.
Chamberlain.
The Birmingham Post announces
that Sir Wm. Vernon Harcourt, Lord
Henohill, Morley, Chamberlain, and
Sir Geo. Trevelyn will meet probably
next weok to discuss the Irish question ill the spirit of Gladstone's letter.
It is proposed, says the 'Post, to havo
the subject discussed in the freest possible nianneifind no proposition of a
binding character will bo submitted.
Gladstone will tako no personal part iu
the conference. Lord Salisbury lias
sent a cable dispatch to the Marquis of
Lansdowne, govornor-geneml of Canada, asking him if he would be willing
to join the ministry.
A speaker at to-day's meeting of the
national league at Dublin expressed
his distrust and hatred of Chamber-
loin.

BelRii of lhe Woman.
Mun never appreciates his inferiority
to woman so thoroughly ns when ho
stands before the attar in the presenco
of un audience of friends and hears
the clergyman make him husband.
Nino out of ten mon in such a position
tremble as if they were about to be
arrested fur murder, whilo nine out of
ten women gu through the ceromony
as grncofully ns if it were an overy-day
occurrence. And it is this timorous
creature in a dress suit tliat promises
to protect tlio calm and placid angel
whose orange blossoms are her auremc.
What delicious sarcasm there is in tlio
thought! And in after life, when tlie
husband gets torn up by caro aud
when a littlo trouble comes to steal
nwny his pence nf mind, how is it then I
Tho woman whom ho promised to
protect becomes liis protector. Shu
sees sunshine through tho clouds.
Shu smooths out tlie wrinkled brow
of cure. Shu props up his flagging
spirits. She puts now life into his
bosom, new hopo into his soul and he
goes forth in tho morning with now
strength nnd new zeal to wrustle with
life and its responsibilities. Woman
may be the weaker Vessel, but she
isnt broken up and doesn't go tu

Mr. Mills, one of the Dominion
government observers who was located on North Bluff island, in lhe cen-
tr* uf Hudson's Strait, has arrived in'
Winnipeg. He says a good channel
exists to tho north of the i-hiuil which
is frequently taken by whalers when
tho main channel ia closed. Through
this channel the Bteamer Arctic passed
on June 0th, and might haro passed
through a month earlier. Capt. Nap-
kan, an American whu lived * on the
island three yenrs, reported that tho

and Mr. Mills agrees that a vessel like
tho Arclio could go through either
ono channel or the other at any season.

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption has for Nome
time been recognized by Medical M-n to
bo the most simple and effectual in ■■uns
of convoying to Diseased Oigans, "Curatives," but In oases of Kidney Disease and
