VOLUME 1
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 8, 1886.
NUMBER 34
5ail| gtjtiab: Coltttnbiftn
Wednesday Evening;, Sept. ». ttm.
The London ifcoiiomt'it' has revised its estimates of the British
and Frenoh wheat crop, and now
places the crop of Great Britain at
57,500,000 bushels, against,80,000,-
000 last year, showing a deficit of
22,500,000, to lie supplied by an extra importation. The 'deficiency in
Ffadoo! is. even,gi*a»'tiB)y1tifye present
year's harvest being placed at 283,-
800,000 bushels as agnkist 313,000,-
000 .bushels in 1885, a decrease of
29,200,000 bushels. There is also a
shrinkage of 20,000,000.busheUia
the. rye orop. of the latter country.
Hence, ii will i bi ■ seen that those
two ,nafipns will require 71,7QO,O0O
bushels bore foreign wheat,-or its
enyivalei**! 'in flouri"durihg,ithe import year ending with August 31,.
1887, than,tiiey did for that ending
to-day. Lookingto the sources of supply, we find that the currant year's
harvest, ill all the wheat-exporting
countries' 'outside of the United
States,' with, the I possiblo i exception
of the Argentine Republic ahd
Canada, have deficient crops, and us
those two countries cut a very insignificant figure us exporters of
breadstulls, there is reason ito suppose'that the United States will be
drawn upon to furnish a large per-
i centage of. the deficits above mentioned. Tlio fact that crops in
other bread-importing countries- of
Eutope ate also below last year's
yields gives additional assurance
that they, too, will become 'more
liberal buyers \ of American wheat
during the coming year, and it may
be reasonably predicted ihat our
exports of wheat and.flour during
' the next twelve'months will lirgely
exceed; thou of the export year just
closing. This .conclusion derives'
further confirmation, from the fact
that our crop just harvested is far
superior ih ' quality to the grain of
any other country with which it
will come in competition, except the
scanty surplus that will go from
Manitoba and the other western
provinces of British Nortii America, where the grain is said to be
identical with the No. 1 hard wheat
from Northern Minnesota and Dakota.-—^Chicago Journal.
The Chicago correspondent of the
Winnipeg -SWu says; "The domple-
tiqn of the Canadian Pacific and
the announcement of the intention
to put a fast line of steamers on the
Pacific, coupled with the, fact that
the.; harbor defences on the Atlantic
nnd 'Paoifio coasts in Canada are
being, strengthened, is causing some
-excwsmeiit- in-tKiS' tbantrj1;   ' ™e
, faatr .thai Halifax is to be iiiiKfe at
onoe ,a great, naval station by the
English, Andi that Lieut-Colonel
O'Brien, of the IWynlr Engineers,
has' arrived at Victoria for the pur
.pose of selecting-.suitnble sites for
the propos M fortifications along -the
; Pacifio Coast, is causing; a move to
be made hero in thesame direction.
The'mOvement, however, is oonflhed
to the .newspapers, and ■■ while, the
British' jjoverrimettt is"'thus Jnfepar-
ing for' military and naval protection of the new trade to be developed through the completion of the
Canadian Paoifio Railway,, on .the
part of the United ,Bta«*.!g'i)vetn-
ment an almost complete apathy
exists. The fact is the proposed
new f^st steamship, line in/connection with the 0. P. ,11., composed of
tha fastest vessels with tho'latest
improvements, will inevitably drive
the' old Pacific Mall line trucks to
the wall- This is not my prediction, but the presentment or some
of the- heaviest qihuls in the country. As to fortifications, the United''States has none on the Pacific
Coast that a gunboat could not secure in'nn jiolir. ' The Chicago peo
pie. are talking of building up trado
with British- Columbia.,'The new
Burlington |'ahd Northern i road is
about completed and matters are
being rapidly arranged for the opening of a .through line. Only one
change of sleepers"is- id-be made
between Chicago and Puget Sound,
and,that will be at Winnipeg. At
Port Moody and Vancouver passengers . and freight will be forwarded
t'o: "Otulfornn and Oregon,'India,
China and Japdiiby rtguUr lines of,
steamers. The officials of the Burlington road aro confident that the
int-JjJnilce^ce of tlie scenery through
the Selkirk ranges will make the
route very popular with tourists,-
whito) tbo' ^fvantages \ <*f! : *(i#l>i<*g
Oliiim, Jaban aiid India by direct
and fast linos of steamers; birilt for
tho express trade, will; itis supposed,
greatly increase the commerce of the
North-western states and Canada.
Business itirin' here eitjiress a hope
of building dp a largo trade with
British Oolumbia over the new routo.
•All this is an indication of what
the 0. P. R, is going to do for Oan-
: iAks,:1-,heart j a iWlrond ofliciiJ:io-
mark yesterday thai low people havo
conceived tne future Of the new road."

Wednrrnlny Evening, Snn. s. 1880.
It is snid in well-informed circles
that tho . Czar's perpetual fear of
bombs has developed in him a temper bordering on insanity. He has
taken thc control of the foreign
affairs of the empire into his own
hands entirely, nnd this is really
the explanation of the clumsy nnd
bungling way in which the Batoum
affair was conducted, so differently
from the usual Itussian policy of
concealing the iron hand within a
velvet glove. His ministers fear to
remonstrate, and the whole outlook
for eastern diplomacy is decidedly
gloomy.
The Law's Delays.
In the London Echo of the 14th
ult. we find n very striking and
curious instance not only of the
vexatious delays of legal processes,
but also of the folly of one's leaving the execution of philanthropic
schemes to one's executors. In the
year 1870 a man died in the parish
of Shoreditch, leaving a considerable
estate. Being of a' philanthropic
turn of mind he had determined
that the poor of his parish should
share in the wealth he had been
permitted to acquire, hut he made
the too common mistake of leaving
the execution of this excellent purpose till after his death. The will,
as wills often are, was encumbered
by certain conditions to whieh it
wns found impossible to adjust the
circumstances. The bequest left
wus to be applied to the establishment of a soup kitchen, and the
sum set apart was iSSO.OOO. But
the trustees were unable to find a
site suitable for the purpose that
would comply with the conditions.
For years the matter occupied their
attention, and they finally gave up
in utter despair. For ten years
nothing was done. Five years ago,
however, the matter was taken up
again, and it was finally discovered
that an excellent site existed in the
adjoining palish, on thc very borders of Shoreditch, where tho proposed benefaotion might be established and fulfil both the intent and
conditions of the bequest, The
trustees laid these facts before the
lawyers who acted as advisers to the
bequest, and were instructed to apply to the high court for permission
to locate the benefaction on the border of tho adjoining parish, where
its usefulness to the peoplo of Shore-
ditch would be no less. But the
court declared that it had no power
to make the desired change, and
this action fell to the ground. It
is known what steps will now be
taken, or whether any will be taken
at.all. For 15 years the benefaction has beon lying absolutely unproductive, and perhaps it may re-
; .main in tho same, condition for 15
years more. The moral gathered
from these curious incidents is that
people who propose to establish
benefactions should establish them
during their own lifetime so that
they may have an opportunity of
adjusting them to tho conditions
that aro found whon practical operations arc undertaken. On this
point the Echo observes: "If you
want to do good, do it while you
are yet alive. You may fail then.
The odds are ten to ouo against you
that before your benevolent purpose has been in full swing five
years, you will iind its operation is
in a direction directly opposite to
your desires; but you will probably
have the satisfaction of knowing
something has been done with your
money, and that the pecuniary carcase you have tied up with such
care will not still bo the swiftly-
diminishing meeting-point nf the
vultures fifteen years after your
own has been gathered to your
fathers. If, incredulous of other
people's honesty, especially in connection with money left to poor
people, you determine to devote it
to the .Devil's service iu some shape
or other, you may dispense with all
precations, and the law will use
reasonable diligence to second your
endeavors. If the intending soup-
kitchen founder had tied up the
money in trust for the foundation
of a public-house for tho benefit of
his nearest relation, wo suspect there
would have been little difficulty in
finding a site in Shoreditch. Licensing magistrates and excise authorities Wpuld have co-operated in
friendly rivalry to facilitate its
opening, and long ago tho neighborhood would havo known the unadulterated benefits of nn additional
manifestation of tho power of one
of the two props of tho British empire. But a soup-kitchen and a
hospital—out of which nothing is to
be made excopt for tho poor whom
the founder fondly thought to benefit—surely Shoreditch nnd tho world
may, wait for that whilo the lawyers aiiicably divide the spoil."
The Eclia may be put down as sarcastic, but undor the sarcasm may
be found a good many grains of
valuable truth. We havo often
wondered why poople who havo lots
of money laid by, and lot* of generous impulses, should let their Own
lives pass nwny beforo inaugurating
the philanthropic schemes they intend to accomplish.

Tho great popularity of this preparation,
after its test of many years, sbould be an
assurance, even to the most skeptical, tlmt
it fs really meritorious. Those who have
used Hall's Hair Renewer know that
it does nil that is claimed.
It causes new growth of hair on bald
heads—provided the huir follicles nre not
dead, which is seldom tho cuse; restores
natural color to gray or faded hnir; preserves tbe scalp healthful and clear of
dandruff; prevents tbo hnir fulling off or
changing color; keeps it soft, pliant, lustrous, nud cause.-) ft to grow long nnd
thlek.
Hall's Hair Renewer produces its
effects by the healthful influence of its
vegetable ingredients, which invigorate
nnd rejuvenate. It is not a dye, and is
u delightful nrticlc for toilet use. Containing no alcohol, it docs not evnp-
orute quickly und dry up tlie nuturnl oil,
leaving the hair hursh and brittle, as do
other preparations.

"writ-jr oi tliis letter is anxious to know
tho result of the expedition now being

wishes to bo informed of the result as
early as possiblo. Ho says that if tlio
truo cod can 1)0 found in lnrge quantities on this const there is Ao question
at all but a largo trado can be done
both ih preserved fish and cod liver

Editor Columbian.—Allow me to
correct a mistake made by Mr. Shiles in
liis answer to "Snip" concerning police
uniforms. The only member of tho police committee that asked mo for a tender
was Mr. Ross, to whom I gave a tender
for serge and beaver suits, and I stated
to Mr. Ross at the time that I was nre-
parsd to make them at a price lower than
Victoria firms, if I did not make a cent
by doing so. Mr. Ross Informs me that
he was uot consulted with regard to the

, That "Tocsin or the Soul, the Dinner Bell," as Byron calls it, suggests no
pleasing reflections to the dyspeptic, bilious sufferer. He partakes, of course,

like lead in his unhappy stomach. There
Is a remedy, however, and its name is

The Tea Trade.
What wero but a few months ngo
little more than speculative visions of
the futuro of the C. P. R. are to-day,
despite thoir seeming improbability,
fast becoming realizations. Shipload
after shipload of tea from Japan aro
passing over it to the eastern states;
and Mr. Frazer, a China merchant, in
an interview with a Montreal Star reporter, expresses great expectations as
to the development of the trade. The
time occupied in transit is, it seems,
shorter than by any other route
— forty-seven days from Yokohama to Montreal, whilo the rates
aro in close competition with tliose
by tho Suez Canal route—£3 10s. sterling per ton of forty feet. So favorable indeed does Mr. Frazer regard
the prospects of tlie now route to be,
that he estimates that tho proportion
of three-fourths of the total imports of
China and Japan teas into America,
hitherto the share of tlio Suez Canal
route, will hereafter como by the C.P.
R,; whioh, throughout its route can
drop off consignments to the States, so
saving cost of carriage • from tiie seaboard to places west The western
distribution into the States may be
made south from Winnipeg, and the
eastern front Brockville. The C.P.R.,
from its prospects aa a trade route to
its prospects as a passenger route, we
may endorse most fully all that Mr.
Fraser has said on this hoad. No
doubt tho road will be used for
military purposes by the Imperial
authorities; and besides this it is, we
believo, sure to become a favorite*
route for civilian travol between England and tlie East. The scenery along
it is fine; the Canadian air bracing;
and to persons enorvated by long residence in India or China, to whom
the passage through the Red Sea and
the scorching hut winds coming from
the deserts on either hand is justly a
matter of nervous dread, the alternative route- now opened entirely
through one of the most salubrious
climates in the world, is a boon little
less than health itself.—The Week

Constantinoi-lk, Sept. 8.--The Porte
has sent a note to the powers praying
them tb prevent the foreign military occupation of Bulgaria. Turkey has authorized Ottoman cankers to effect a loan
for 1)00,000 Turkish pounds, half payable
at once and the balance in instilments.
Austin, Texas, Sept. 8.—-The action
of Governor Ireland in thc Araaurcs case,
in bringing to public attention other
Mexican outrages upon American citizens, is followed by a complaint from J,
B. Wood and L. H. Guakill who allege in
substance that in Aug., 1885, they wero
arrested by Mexicans of Luguna ranch iu
Lower California, Mexico, On account
of the sudden di»appearaucc of J. 11.
Hanson, one of their frienda who employed them to mind his cattle and who
they Bay went to San Francisco and did
not return at tho time of complainant's
arrest by the Mexicans began to sell, kill
and eat Hanson's cattle. They doubtless know what has bucomc of Hanson
who had much trouble and has been fin-
prisoned for the purpose, it is assorted,
of extorting money from him. Mexicans
hod shot at him several times and onco
wounded him severely. Complainants
apprehended that thc object oi their arrest was to convict them of Hanson's
murder. Tho Mexicans tried to frighten
thein and to make them break jail and flee
the country, but they would not scare
and aro still in confinement. Complainants say they have been hold one year
and fifteen days for uo other thnn spent
lative purposes on the part of the Mexicans, The state department have written to our consul at Lapaz and got 2 or 3
letters front him when he first came
down but he does not answer our letters
any longer. Hanson lett $30,000 worth
of property in Mexico. Governor Ireland in reply states he is glad to get tlie
statement but complainants should appeal to the state department through tlie
governor of California.
Constantinople, Sept. 8.—On tho
definite abdication of Prince Alexander,
Turkish and Russian commissioners will
be appointed to form a provisional government to conduct Bulgarian affairs
pending election by the national assembly
of a new ruler. The Porte has formally
declared that Turkey will never consent
to any proposal, contingent that Russia
shall ocoupy Bulgaria, Eastern Koumelin
or any part of Turkey.
New York, Sept. 8.—-The directors
ofthe Western Union Telegraph company have deeided to pass tlie regulur
quarterly dividend.
Vienna, Sept. 8.—The Free Press
says: Prince Alexander, yesterday,
when delivering his farewell address to

of Castle Chapultepeo during the Amorican war, -solemn services comment
orative of tho event and those who fell

service. Services wero also held in all
the churches.
Charleston, Sept. 8.*—Things aro
settling down in Charleston and the
slight tremors of earthquake whicli are
felt once or twice daily attract little
mora attention than the rumbling of a
passing wagon. Laborers are at work
in every direction cleaning away masses of fallen brick and stones and thoro
are strenuous efforts boing mado to
protect injured buildings from the expected rains. Everywhere thore aro
Btgns of the restoration of the normal condition of things and business is
moving. Relief committees which

Tlie annual report of tliis solidly pros*
fierous Canadian institution will be found
n another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiuras wliich
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks tothe resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income tbu very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims--which in a company of the age of
tho Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The n.ss ts and liabilities ure
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $282,19!)
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase In the assets iu tho last year
was $260,390. So much for'what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:*—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

White Bhokzh Monuments.—White
Bronze iB a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn,, Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who aro making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments mado by
theso companies, it has been found that
tlie material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically hide*
Btructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to bo equal to gold, Biker or platinum,
nnd superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and ave
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against tho
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts thc surface, but does not ad*
here to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
eau take place.—Boston Journal of Commerce. Chas, J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze
Monuments in British Columbia. Much
cheaper and more durable than any
other. myBtc

Proverbs, 20:1: "JVlrio Is a mocker-strong
drink Is ragingi nud wUosoovor Is deceived thereby Is not ivlso.'.'
WHY   DO MEN SBLL WHISKliY ?
When it oomos to tho liquor seller
I want to Br.y a word or two about
them. Do you know what makes a
man sell liquor ? Is it for tho good he
is doing humanity ? For tho kindness
ho is doing the raco? Does he sell at
a li>ss bocunaelio is doing tlio community uood ? Did you eve? hear a man
in the liquor business claim to be it
benefactor to his race ? Wheu a man
proposes to swear thnt hu was ready to
relinquish his claim on heaven for
$500, it was tlio money—the §500—ho
wanted, for which lie wns willing to go
to hell. That's the vory thing that
makes men sell wltiskoy. Do you
know that? It has beun my privilege
to preach thc gospel to many a barkeeper, und to tnke liim into tho
church, and tho universal verdict of
overy bar-keeper thus convicted haa
been that from tho time he embarked
in the business till ho quit it, he knew
and folt it was wrong. One fellow
said he was drunk overy clay he was in
thc business. He was drunk nine
months ut a stretch.
A HOME THRUST.
No man in America engages in tho
liquor traflic on any other principle
than for tho money that is in it. No
man steals for any other reason. I
didn't say that a fellow that would sell
whiskey would steal. You thought
that was what I was going to say, and
your-thinking makes it that way. I
will aay this much. I will steal every
bitu. I eat and overy bite my children
eat before I will sell liquor. I would.
[Laughter nnd applause.] Why, I
said something like that onco; nnd a
barkeeper took me to tnsk: "I don't
agree with whnt you snid to-day, sir."
"What?" "Did you not Bay you
would rather steal thnn sell whiskey ?
It is as honorable a business, sir, as a
man ovor followed." I said to him:
" You know that widow on the hill ?"
"Yes." '* She has two boyB. Their
father died about tlto time they were
grown, and left them about $3,000 or
$4,000, und they began drinking with
you, sir. One of those* boys is in tho
penitentiary now, and the other is off
somewhere, tho mother don't know
where, nnd she is grieving her lifo
away. Which would bo worse, to
have broken into that house and stolen
that money, or to have debauched ber
boys as you hnve done—putting one
into the penitentiary and running the
other off j'1 He suid he didn't want to
talk about it, nohow.
COMING TO THB QUESTION.
Now, as I havo said, there are three
elements involved on the whiskey side
of this issue—the men who mako it,
the mon who sell it and the men who
drink it. These Inst form tho largest
class of humanity. Now we como to
the main , proposition—prohibition or
no prohibition. And just as soon na
you spring this question, men are going to talk about "liberty," aud say,
" Ho wadtB to destroy-tho liberty uf
the American peoplo." Do you know
thnt liberty means the power to do
right. License menna the power to do
wrong. Thore 13 the difference—-liberty ia to right what license is to
wrong. Every whiskey license hi America to-day is sold for so muoh, with
thu distinct understanding that wrong
is to- come of it.: I am opposed to
licensing a bar. bucuuse it puts the
poor, helpless-family nt tho mercy of
tlie most heavtlusB brutes that curse
the fair face of the oarth. The child
of a physician in our town went to ono
of these fiends nnd said: "Please
don't sell papa any more whiskey. He
has been on this-spree for two weeks."
And then the bar-keeper turned
around and crushed the heart of that
pure girl with,"" m, I .iy license for my busii Her heart
bled as she went home to tui] her mother, I am down ou lii-etise 1
THE ROAD TO'llEtt*.
If men will make iind soil and drink
whiskey, let thom hide and skulk in
the mountains', nnd let it be known
that evory man involved in tbe infamous business is a criminal, [Applause.] If \ye could just put it all
out of America nt once ! " I would
voto for it, but I don't bolieve in prohibiting it iit one place ntid selling it
in another," you sny, If your wife
wero to start to mnke yon a coat mid
should sny, " I can't huw up all tho
seams at once," she would talk just as
you nre talking now. The old mnn is
out there shivering in the cold. He
stiys,." Wife, sit down there and tako
a stitch nt a time." Lot us tnke a district, n counly, astute nt n time, until
wo roll every barrel out into the Atlantic ocean, and then any, "Thank
God, we are freo now." I am dead
down on it, now and forever. I am
ngainst the traflic now. I bhall be
against whiskey when I come to die,
and I shall hnvo no regrets about thia
thing. I never heard n man any, "I
am sorry because I set n sober example; I am sorry I never drank before
my children." \m whiskey sellers
will hava to meet your customers up
yonder where thore nro no demijohns,
and whiskey batrola, and ten cent
pieces passed over the bar. You will
have to givo au account to Ood for
your corner in tins hnsinw-a down
here. All over the land theru are
heart.I and homes desolate and ruined
by this curse, and if thero U go other
man to fight for thetij, hero Is one
man that wilt stand faithfully to the
last. We will now receive the benediction. ^_^
