More About Commercial Union
Yestord.y wc published a report
of an interview with Mr. Erastus
Wimaa on the efl'ect of commercial
union ou the iron industry of Canada.   Speakins; of epmraeroial pursuits Mr.  Wimun said if the customs restrictions were removed he
had   no reason to doubt that the
Canadian merohunts would be quite,
able to hold their own with the merchants of the United States,   "jfi?
the lite of me," he said, "I cannot
see what Toronto merchants knwto
fear from  commercial union.   On
the contrary; I really believe that
no gift in the hands of Providence
would be as beneficial for them as
this would.    It seems to me that
the greatest misconception, and the
greatest   lack of  information prevails as to this question.   The impression seems to be that the New
Vork merchants would take away
the trade of Canadian cities, and
that the drummers from American
cities would   deluge Canada with
their wares.    Well, let us see how
many jobbing houses there are in
New York and in Toronto on the
one hand and cities of a correspond
ing size  iu the United States on
the other.   Take dry-goods as an
instance.' You can count upon your
fingers the jobbing houses in this
line  in New York, and they aro
hardly more numerous than in Toronto.    In Cincinnati, Chicago and
St. Louis the jobbing trade is far
more active and extensive in proportion to the population than in New
York.    The best evidence of the
expanded or diffused character of
the wholesale business is found in
the business of my own firm. Without wholesale houses tlio mercantile
agency could not exist, and yet we
have over one hundredibranchesiin'
one hundred different cities (mainly
managed   and equipped by Canadians, by the way), all sustained by
the wholesale trade of their respective localities. Now, what any merchant in Buffalo, New York, Detroit
or Chicago possesses in the shape of
ability, capital or energy, which is
not possessed by the merchants of
Toronto in an eminent degree, I am
at a loss to understand.   It is true
there  might  be  some disarrangements in existing channels of business, and the connections with manufacturers in  Britain and on the
continent might have to be replaced
by connection with manufacturers
in the United States, but that the
wholesale   merchant,   of   Canada
could not buy in the cheapest market, in the world just as closely, all
things being equal, ss the merchants
of New York, Buffalo and Detroit
is to make an admission which the
merchant, here  themselves would
indignantly repel.   That they can
get just as good rates by freight,
after the goods are bought from first
hands;  that they can sell them as
cleverly, and collect for them just
as certainly, as any other beings on
the face of th. earth, goes without
saying.   In the old times when the
means of connection in railroad and
telegraphy, etc, had  not retched
their present perfection, great jobbing centres iike New York, Boston,
and Philadelphia were a necessity
of trade;  but of Into years all this
has been changed.   There is hardly
a first-class hardware jobbing houso
left in the city of New York. Where
there used to be fifty wholesale boot
and shoe houses there are hardly
now ten.    When you have named
four great grocery concerns you will
look around in vain to discover any
house whose business extends beyond
the   local   .tat.   lines—which   is
known by the near-by trade.   Why
tH. wholesale merchants of Toronto
should not continue to occupy their
present advantageous position is inexplicable to me.    On the contrary,
if the customs barriers were broken
down I do not see why they should
not extend into Ohio, Michigan, and
other contiguous states.   They possess all the elements to achieve success.   They have business training,
otose application, well-developed staff
of employees and abundant monetary  facilities, and they certainly
should  be  able   to hold their own
with  all comers.      Certainly the
prospects for them under the changed
conditions which commercial union
would bring to them is infinitely to
be preferred to the prospects that
are open to them now.   The merchants can only prosper if their customers prosper.   If the farmer, of
Canada can be immensely benefited
by throwing open the markets of the
United States to their free access,
they  can buy a great many more
goods than they can now—and what
is better, they can pay for them.
Almost the entire mercantile capital
of the country I. now trusted out
to the farmers of Canada, and the
people in the country localities dependent on them.   If the debt-pay
ing powers of these farmers could
be increased by 30 percent.; if larg.
er markets were open to them and
greater rarities of products produced
and sold to these markets because
of their contiguity, the safety of the
existing mercantile investments in
credits would be immensely improved. At present litis vast retinue of outstandings due to the country merchant, and by. him due to
tho wholesale merchant, and by the
wholesale merchant due to the banks,
occupies the position of a third lien
on the decreasing assets of the
farm. The first lien is the governmental and yearly expenditure for
its maintenance, which .capitalised
would amount to something like (80
an new. ThO second lien is that
held by tho loan societies and money
lenders, which is the most dangerous of all; and the third, which is
entirely unsecured, is the yearly
store debt which every retail merchant in the country will testify
grows yearly larger and larger. The
lines of this photograph may be
somewhat severely drawn; but that
they faithfully represent the main
condition of the mercantile situation
few can deny. If the farmers were
rapidly improving in their condition;
if their sons were remaining at home
to assist the fathers in their declining years; if the prospects of better
prices, larger markets and decreased
cost of living could be assured, the
hope of realising one hundred cents
on the dollar by the merchant on
the vast volume of his assets would
be immensely improved. Nothing
would open up suoh a vista in this
direction as would commercial union
with the United States."

narrow radical-unionisto.
London, June 1.—The inaugural
conference of tho Radical Union was
opened to-day at Birmingham by Jo-
soph Chamberlain. Lord Hartington,
In a letter to the conference, said:
11 The doubt and confusion surrounding tho home rule question wore atill
unremoved, The action of the Gladstone liberals caused an indefinite
postponement of the settlement of th.
Irish question. The alliance of the
Gladstone government with the Par-
nellitcB had daily awakened parliamentary authority." Chamberlain, in
an adureas, referred to the course
adopted by Mr. Trerellysn nil the
Irish question, and said hu ivgretied
that Treveilyan had ilotlWl Ills nrmnr
when the fight was hottest. Liberal

taunted upon their alliailcu nith
Tories 'There was satisfaction, however, in knowimt thst their allies .ere
English gentlemen and not aubaidin.-il
agents of a foreign conspiracy. Tbe
time seemed approaching when tbo
formation of a new party would I e
necessary. A resolution was po-a. il
in favor of tho largest possible extension of local government to Irotaml,
subject to the supremacy of the roy.l
parliament on the protection" of iho
Protestant minority. The uotiferenc
was attended by 2,000 iluleiiiites reptc
sonting all parts of drest Biitain.
Some of the speeches were bitterly
anti-Oladatoninn. Chunberlain declared his belief that coiu'.listinnwoul.l
be mere deception. Low Hurting- .
ton's letter described tho Gladaton-
ians as absorbed in the Parhellites,
their direct object being to retain at
any cost the support of the Parnsllitea
by their policy.

Campu hu just arrived from Nooowri.
He states that authentic new. has
reached Oposurs that at the tint, of
the first earthquake a volcano broke
out in the Chihuahua aide of th. Sierra
Madre, near Piedra Verde, and about
30 miles west of the Casas Grandee.
Different parties, numbering in .11
about thirty, had gon. from i Cnsas
Grandes to inspect the volcano, none
of, which haJ.owing to thsinuna.;
neat, bean enabled to reach within
three miles of the mass of molten lava
which kept pouring down the mountain
side, and it is estimated to extend
fully ten miles from the crater of tho
volcano. Volumes of smoke by day
and a ted glare by night from the
burning mountain are visible for a long
distance. Governor Torres, of Sonora,
has directed a party to be sent from
Oposurs to inspect and report upon
the phenomenon. A slight shock of
earthquake was felt here Monday, aud
another at 2 a.m. to-day.   .

Boulanger Deposed.
From Sunday until.yesterdoy the
Western Union wires were down,
and, consequently, the record of
events transpiring in that period
has not been transmitted to the
British. Columbia press. It is one
of the misfortunes of pur telegraphic
service that after the wires go up
under such oiroumstances the mused
despstches are not. sent, but we
must take up the thread of events
just where the break, was mended,
without knowing what happened
during the interval. > From our press
despatches received this morning we
learn inforentially that Gen. Boulanger has been deposed from his
position of minister of war in the
French government. It was announced some time ago that there
had been a change of administration
in France, but very few people imagined that it would be possible for
any government to set aside the
military head of the nation. Gen.
Boulanger hod that peculiar dash
about him so dear to the French,
and his training of the army ha.
been such as to bring it up to a wonderful state of discipline. Apparently he had gotten well in hand
also the defences of the nation, and
wu impressed with the necessity of
making the military establishment
first in point of importance so long
as the disturbed condition of Europe,
and particularly the hostile sentiment of Germany, continued to jeopardise the public peace. -When
the change of government took
place Gen. Boulanger was reported
to have expressed the opinion that
no cabinet would take the responsibility of removing him from office.
M. Rouvier, however, does hot seem
to have had the fear of Boulanger
before his eyes. If Rouvier succeed, in holding office without Boulanger, the circumstance may determine the course of European poli
tics; but there is every reason to
believe that the strength of Boulanger will be shown greater than
that of the premier. In the eye.
of Frenchmen it would be a serious
blunder to make any. change that
might possibly interfere with the
efficiency of the military establishment, which is the glory of France.
Beating the Record.
It is a long time since an American steamship line cut any sort of
figure on  the transatlantic route.
An effort is now being made, however, to redeem the reputation of
the Americans for genuine enterprise, and if the projected scheme
pan. Out anything like the prospectus, the present Atlantic greyhounds
wilt  speedily be forced to take a
back seat   The Arrow S. S. Co. of
Virginia, i. now  building a new
steamer which is to be ready to take
her place on the transatlantic route
next fall.   Thirl, the first of a line
of 12 similar ships, all to be built
in America ana run  under  the
American flag, i These steamers are
described by an exchange u collision
proof, unsinkable under any ordinary circumstance, and capable of
attaining a speed of from 26 to 30
knots.    The designer is Robt. E.
Fryer, who has spent 22 yean working out the details of his vessel, in
which there are many entirely new
features.     It will be only 40 feet
beam, although 540 feel in length;
will have a ballasted keel, a semicircular, submerged midship section,
five masts, six smokestacks midway
between the center and side lines of
the ship, and more than one thousand water-tight compartments. These
compartments are also to be airtight and connected with an air-
forcing apparatus  worked by the
main engine, designed to keep out
water in the event of a leak, by
filling the compartment with air at
agreaterpressurethan that of Ihe
water.   The propeller is single, of a
unique pattern, and the engines are
to have from 19,600 to 28,000 horsepower.     In a recess at the bow,
which can be opened and closed at
will from the bridge or pilot-house,
is a screw-propeller worked by an
. independent engine, by whioh the
ship   can be steered in case of an
emergency, expected collision, or the
like.   The life-boat, are carried in
a corresponding funnel aft, ocoes
aible from the interior of the vessel,
so that boats can be filled with passengers and then launched, something after the manner of a torpedo from iu tube.   The arrangement
for quenching fire consists of carbon
dioxide stored in tanks under ptes-
•ure, with pipes leading to all parts
of the .hip.   Altogether the vessel
I. full of untried novelties end all
manner of departures from practice.
Should it come up to the expects
tions of iu designers it will work .
revolution in Atlantic passenger and
mail  transportation, but it is said
that expert, .re of opinion that the
experiment  will  fail.     There i.
scarcely anything impossible to soi-
ence, however, ud we may now be
right on the very threshold of a
great discovery.

DIRECTORS' ANNUAL REPORT.
GxiaxEMis—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to state that it will be an utter
impossibility to run the hospital free of
debt on the grant just voted by tho gov.
eminent for tho ensuing financial year.
The Burgeon 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
patients from all parts of the province,
There are a number of incurables in
this hospital, some of whom were brought
from Viotoria hospital years ago. The
sum of f 1,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, the lost
few years. The Board think, therefore,
that some of these incurables should bo
shipped back to.Victoria.
A great number of improvements hnve
been made during the year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-house built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; the
building being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable Bxpencl-
inure.
The hospital has been filled to its
utmost capacity daring the whole year.
The Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous Bubstriptions, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also the con-
5relations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
LBdrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist and
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladiea and
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.
K. Woods, Major, Lennle, H. Elliot, W.

The surgeon's report is appended heie-
to, and gives full details of the work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost per day for each resident patient in the hospital, whioh includes the disbursements on out-door
patients, Is 67 cents.

The number nf Incurables now in the
Hospital Is twolvo [121. This large number requiring to be token care of from
year to year render. It impossible to make
a number of desirable Improvements In
the building,owing to the limited supply
of funds, I have Introduced the table of
residences to show the people of Riltish
Columbia that they ull ought to take an
Interest In helping ou this institution,
which Is Increasing In usefulness every
year, as may be seen by comparing the
number of Indoor patients of the previous
year -seventy-five (75)—with this year-
one hundred and three (103).
we still require a lot of draining to be
done about and from tho building. The
floors and walls have been Improved and
tho new wash-room Is a great addition to
the comfort of the place.
I have great pleasure In thanking n
number of friends of the Hospital for present, of clothes, old linen, pictures, books
and papers. Again I have to thank the
steward, Mr. Charles Dlgby, for his constant attention to tbe cleanliness of tho
building and his kindness and attention
to the wants of the sick and his readiness
In carrying out all my directions. Before
closing this report I must offer my sincere
thanks to the medical gentlem.-n who so
kindly ottered their assistance to myself
whenever required during the past yenr.
I am Yours Faithfully,

The News Bays a gentleman from
Langley, who was in the city yesterday, states that the water in that vicinity wu within twelve inohes of the
top of the bank, and is still rising
when he left. Ho says a flood of
greater or less magnitude is inevitable,
Sirticularly in the neighborhood of
hilliwhack. The crops along the
Fraser are all in the ground and tho
flood will prove very disastrous should
it lut any length of time.

Oottaoes.—Mr. Peter Orford has
in course of erection sevon ne*1 houses
on the corner of Pellam st. nnd Park
Lane. These houses are neat and
tasty looking, and add to tho appearance of that portion of the city. Picket
fences surround each lot, and Mr. Orford is doing everything to make the
premises look attractive.
Vancouver Gas Company.—Mr.
Stamford, of tho Gas Co., informs us
that he WM in Vancouver yesterday,
and succeeded in organizing a gas company in that place, to be known as the
Vancouver Gas Co. Operations will
begin shortly, and in a few months, no
doubt, the city on the inlet will bo
enjoying the luxury of pas light.
Tbe Feaseb is still rising. It is
now about 2 feet below tho high water
mark of 1882 at this city, and about
4 feet below at Sumas. Snow fell in
the mountains around Harrison river
on Tuesday night, which, as it molts,
will no doubt help to swell the flood.
At Sumas the water is over the steamboat landing, and much of the lowlands in that vicinity is flooded.

Cheap Bates.—We learn from Mr.
J. C, Armstrong that the C P. B.
have issued a new Schedule of cheap
return rates to Harrison Hot.Springs,
as follows: From Westminster to
Agassis and return, aood from Saturday to Monday, 82.50; from Westminster to Agassis and return, good for 16
days, 15. Thia is a commendable action on the part of the railroad, and
will place thia popular resort in reach
of everyone. The new rates go in
force to-day.

A Goon Idea.—It has been suggested, and w. think the suggestion an
apt one, that now, as the Fraser is
high snd its waters flood many of the
lower lota on th. city front, that the
proprietor, of these lots take tbe trouble to shove the mass of rotten wood
which hu accumulated, out into the
stream and let the current carry it off.
If allowed to remain, when the waters
lower, this debris will dry and putrefy
under the rsys uf Ihe sun, and give
forth a stench which will bo anything
but pleasant and agreeable.

Geeat Indian Gathering— Arrangements are being made on an extensive scale tor the greet gathering of

expected then will be about 5,000 Indians present from various parts of
th. country. The exercises will be
ohiefly of. religious nature, snd there
will be s large number of priests aud
church dignit.ries present.

To Unseat Fry.—It is reported
Ihtt. petition hu been filed against
the return of Henry Fry for Oowichan
district, who wu elected to fill the
vacancy caused by the death of tho
late Hun Wm. Smilhe, The petition
sets up the plea that Mr. Fry when
nominated for tbe seat had not resigned his office ss government agent.
It is further alleged that he was not
properly or duly registered on the
voters'list, The seat ia claimed by
Hr. Sutton in consequence of these
alleged irregularities.

situated in the eastern extremity of
this city, is now in full blast. At

is thought, further facilities will be
added that will produce about double
this number. On Saturday next the
first kiln will start to burn. The establishment and its employes com
firise . regular little colony, there bong thirty-on. hands employed. The
pay roll averages about |60 per day.

Hainan's Defeat.
Jacob Uuuduur Takes the Cham-
plonshlp.       --,
Chicago, May SO.—Jacob Gaudaur
to-day defeated Edward Hanlan, the
groat ex-champion oarsman, in a race
for the championship of America and
$5000, in n 3-milo pull ou Chlumet
Lake. When the tiro men first came
out on tho course tbe water wm a little
rough, but that had no deterring influence and the start wm made with
promptness. Hanlan wm at once a
trifle in the lead, pulling short, quick
strokes, 42 per mile. Gaudaur xept
closo to him with a long, steady sweep,
about 38 minuto. Gradually Hanlan
forged ahead and at the end of the
initial mile was fully a length in advance Before tlio turn wm reached
tho wind suddenly freshened and rain
began to pour down. Tho lake was
Boon lumpy from end to end and the~
downpour was almost blinding. Hanlan turned first, two lengths ahead,
time 10:02. Ho was pulling about 35
strokes per minute in rounding and
Gaudaur was pulling about the same
«ait. Hanlan kopt well in front till
entering the third mile, whon he commenced to flag. His stroke became
uneven and rowing seemed to require
great exertion. Gaudaur wm rowing
magnificently at the same long, steady
sweep, but faster. Ho soon passed
Hanlan. First one, then another, and
at last three lengths between them
could be seen. Hanlan then made a
tremendous Bpurt for a very short
time, but could not stand the pace.
He lay back an instant, and glancing
over his shoulder saw himself beaten.
Gaudaur was six lengths away from
him. Gaudaur then slackened speed
and passed the stand an easy winner
by four lengths; time, 20:20. It WM
a flue performance under tho adverse
circumstances. After the race Hanlan
said he did not think the best man
won, although ho acknowledged himself fairly beaten. He claimed to have
been Buffering from a severe cold,
which told upon him at tile critical
time. Gaudaur said it wm the hardest
race he had ever rowed. Hanlan gets
forty per cent, of $3500, which were
tho gate receipts. The. figures 20:29
were taken from the president of the
Farragut Club, who was understood to
be tho timekeeper. The time of the
referees agrees that the three miles
wore mado in 19:30. This hu been
declared official. Gaudaur, therefore,
broke the record; tho best previous
timo being his own against Teemer
over the same course, 19:54, though it
was announced that Hanlan also broke
this previous record, having finished
in 19:34 His backer says he will send
him to Australia, and if he defeats
Beach he will onco more pit him
against Gaudaur.

mHE AIM OF "ORIP" Is to set forth, In

ner, the passing- events of Canadian political and social life. Its Cartoons speak
mere definitely and more pleasingly than
who'e columns of editorial. In this pun-
sent, easily appreolatrie, snd artistic stylo
of presentKiga subject, Ike whole situation Is revealed at a glance. The success
of Urtp shows how well this fact Is appre-
clatcd-lls Cartoons on tbe passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the latter Is equal to that of any
similar publication on the continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ei
tensive Improvements for 1898. The old
cover Is to be discarded, snd the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages.and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
papor,-»vory number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on the continent. The
advts. will be compressed and more systematically arranged!  while similar Im
provements wllfbe made as to the letterpress, A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while Inn Cartoons
will certainly not suffer from extensive
Improvements In the artistic department.
The price of Orlp will hereafter be Ma
year, which Is lower than that of any
jnper of Its kind In Amerlca,-most of
hem Minns' for 19. Single numbers of
Twice a year, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful speelal number will be
Issued, the number of pages being Increased, nnd pleasing features Introduced,
particulars of which will be given In preceding Issues, These numbui will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.
