We have all along questioned the
likelihood of the United States
ever putting into force the retaliation act whieh waa pawed with auch
a flourish of trnmpets, with the object of "coercing" Canada into abandoning her just position on the fisheries question. President Cleveland,
having been urged to put the act
into operation, has written a letter,
in which he declares that he hesitates to take an unfriendly step, in
view of the vastness of the interests that would be affected if this
terrible law were enforced.. If any
other American eitigen besides the
president really needs any inducement to "think twice" before carrying out his threat, he will find it in
the figures whioh Sir Charles Tup
per has published for his information. Speaking at a banquet given
at Montreal in honor of the Hon.
J, A. Chapleau, Sir Charles Tupper
referred to President Cleveland's
letter, and said that he had not ex
aggerated the "vastness" of the interests that would be affected by the
enforcement of the aet, and he
went on to explain the real reason
of the delicacy of the president in
putting it into operation. During
the past fifty years, as he pointed
out, thn Canadian provinces have
purchased .1,400,000,000 worth of
goods from the United States, while
in the same period the United Slates
have purchased from Canada tl,-
050,000,000 worth of produce, leaving a balance of trade in favor of
the United States merchants of
$350,000,000. If the retaliation
bill ia put into operation, the Canadians will seek markets in Great
Britain, thus removing their custom
from the United States merchants.
At the same time, the value of merchandise bought and sold by Canada
and sent through United States ports
and over United States railways has
been no less than $28,000,000 a
year, and, as Sir Charles significantly points put, if the United States
set their retaliatory aot in operation-
they will be diverting the whole of
this freight trade, at well as their
direct commerce with Canada, from
their own ports and railways to the
seaports and railway! ot whioh Canada has no lack. If the great re
public still likes to perform the operation of "cutting off its nose to
spite its face" in this way, Canada
will hardly complain.—The Colonies
and India.
Tbe republic of Switzerland is the
European country whose system of
taxation most resembles our own,
It is the only country where there
is any considerable tax upon property. The countries in which the
aristocracy is the more powerful
generally raise most of their revenues by indirect taxes. InSwitser-
land the indirect taxes are of comparatively little importance. Commerce with tbe surrounding nations
is practically free. In the assessment of local taxes the democratic
cantons ore not content with a property tax, but most of them assess at
a higher rate the property of the
rioh man than the property of the
poor. A good many years ago this
principle wag adopted by Basle, Zurich, and several of the smaller cantons, and a law hat recently been
passed in Vaud by which this canton alto adopts the principle of
progressive taxation. The Vaud
law divides real estate property into
three classes nnd personal property into soven classes. The
lpwest class in each division includes
property under $5,000. The rate of
taxation is 1 per 1,000. Estates
that belong to the second class are
taxed 1J per 1,000, and those belonging to the highest class
are taxed 4 per 1,000. There is
also a retrogressive tax opon earnings, and in this each individual is
allowed in returning his income to
deduct $80 for each person dependent upon him. It is easy to see
how different is the working of such
a tax from the working of an indirect tax. An indirect tax upon
sugar and salt, for instance, falls
almost as heavily upon * man who
has $300 as upon a man who has
$30,000, According to the principle of the Swiss tax, the man who
has $30,000 ought to pay more than
100 times as much as the man who
has $300. By the Swiss principle,
the man with an income of $300,
who has a wife tnd two children dependent upon him, would pay no
taxes at ill, while a bachelor with
the same income would pay upon
$220. If, on the other hand, the
revenue was raised' by a tax upon
sugar tnd salt, the man with t family would pay a treat deal more
than t bachelor. The social justice
of the Swiss principle is recognised
by almost all reoent writers on taxation, tnd we notioe thtt it is gain
ing more tnd more favor here in
America.   One of the results of the
Swiss system is the remarkably
equal distribution of property in
the country.—Christian Union.
The Boll-mil or the Colonies.
The ApflTnumber of Murray's Mag-
aiinc contains a long Jubilee Ode by
Mr. Lewis Morris, entitled " A Song
of Empire," which her majesty has,
we understand, already accepted, and
which covers all the developments at
home and abroad of her reign, the
brief extract which we here subjoin ia
part of the passage in whieh Mr.
Lewis Morris goes through Ihe roll-
call of tbe colonies:
See what a glorious throng they oome,
Turned to their encient home,
The children of our England!  gae

In honor of their Queeu, whose happy
reign
Began when, 'nid their central rear
The naked savage trod the pathless
plain.
Thousands of miles, north,, south, eut,

Their countless herds and flocks unnumbered stray.
Theirs are the vast prlmtoval forest

Yst everywhere are found
The English laws, the English accent,

them blent

Where flower and tree and bird an

Or that which lies within a temperate

Or those, our Southern Britain that

Set in the lonely sea,
Lands of deep fiord and snow-olad soaring hill,
Wherethrough tbe ocean current, abb

And craters vast, wherefrom the prisoned force
Of the great earth-fires runs its dreadful
course.
And vales of palm and fern, whence lik.

High In mid-heaven, the ghostly anew
i-   fields gleam.
And from her far and wintry north
The great Dominion issues forth,
Fit nurse ol stalwart British hesrts and

From her black pine woods, deep in
uow,
Her billowy prairies boundless as the

Where on the aweet untroubled soil
Yearly the unnoticed, countless wild-

And by men's fruitful and compelling
Yearly the deep and bounteous harvests

From the lone plains, wherethrough tbe

In whose brief summer suns, so fierce

On Mvertl occtsiont we have
called attention to various new
avenues in which individual effort
might be profitably directed in this
oountry. The San Francisco Chrm-
icle ol a late date comet to us with
a suggestion which, possibly, may
havt in it the elements of a
bontnst. Some qf our readen are
aware that the fleeoe of the Angora
goat it quite valuable, tnd that thit
thrifty animal is one of the hardiest
tnd mott ettily provided for in the
whole range of useful creatures.
Our San Franoisco cotemporary
points to the suitableness of the
rugged, mountainous region of California, now unoccupied by any industry, for tbe propagation of the
goat Considering the value of the
fleece, it says, it is surprising that
enterprising men have not tried the
experiment ot its production in a
region so well adapted to the purpose. The animal would doubtless
become a mischievous pest on cultivated lowlands, whero there would
be many young trees and ornamental plants within itt reach. It
would probably not pay to rear the
goat in districts where it would be
necessary to construct barriers to
confine it within narrow limits, but
little or no expense would be involved in the mountain sections,
where it would be free to roam
about at will. It feeds and flourishes
on herbs thtt sheep and other animals reject) is far more nimble and
hardy, and far less liable to disease
than tbeep. There is probably no
other useful animal so easily supported as the goat, and if a flock of
them, were sent adrift in the mountain! they would soon multiply without number. They are far moro
capable of taking core of themselves
than either deer or antelope; and
while their fleth might never become
tn article- much sought for in the
market, their skins and fleeces would
tlwayt command fair prices. The
wool of the Angora goat is manufactured into the mott costly fabrics.
It is stated that the total annual
product does not exceed eight million! of pounds, tnd thtt there are
only about a doien manufacturers
of mohair in the world. The staple
used by tliese factories is chiefly obtained in' Asia Minor, although
small quantities are raised in various
portions of Europe and in the United Statei. American mtnuftctur-
ert have produced, and introduced
into the commerce <_. the I world,
mon thtn fifty different varieties of
mohair goods, including watered
ctmtUtt, which possess a beauty and
brilliancy of Surface unapproached
by ftbpict made of lustre wool, and
alum! rivalling silks. Decorative
ltcet, braidings, coat trimmings,
light and durable cloths of elegant
texture, and light, lustrous, rich
trtiolet of dress for Indies, possessing
unrivalled gloasiness and softness,
strength .and durability, are menu
ttctwred from the fleece of the Angora goat The French manufacture
from mohair a kind of lace which is
cheaper iind fur, more durable than
the costly fabrics of Valenciennes
and Ohontilly. Ten-years ago a
correspondent, writing from Washington to the Cincinnati Commercial,
give tome highly interesting statistics tnd valuable information in regard to mohair ond its manufacture.
He wid: "Utrecht velvets have for
tome yeere been nude in Fiance,
tnd more recently in England, for
hangings, furniture, trimmings, Iin
ings of carriages, tassels, etc. Ten
pounds of this hair thus manufactured have been known to bring, tt
retail, $600; while the belt shawls
made in Jfcanc. and the east from
mohair warp, using the fur for the
weft or filling, tells tt enormous
prion—from $605 to $2,600. Tht
skint of the yonng goats are fre*
qntDtly dratted for fun, colored or
not, tad and. tt trimmings for tht
oottlittt ltdiet' dresses, cloaks, muffs,
tippets, eto. A tingle skin thut
drtsted hat been known to sell for
fan-Mil. to $100." The raw material it to cottly from the ftct thtt
the product of Asia Minor is monopolised by foreign manufacturers,
that but little progress hit been
in tht manufacture of fabrics from
mohair in thit country.    Expert
^l^-fTO!"^ ■__*• iVPb
and speciil maituunery are required,
tnd these oottiderationt, added to
the extortionate price of the foreign
tuple,ibavelwpt toe manufacture of
mohair at home in the background.
One mtnuftcturing firm in Law
renoa, Mm., niid at high as $3 per
lb. far; i ibm-1 quantity of the raw
raiterial, but tht price *•»• so out-
ngeoatly high thtt tbey were compelled to ttop their machinery. The
Chsrmds thinks thtt if goat cul-
ture ware tttablithed in California
ths foreign material would soon be
driven out and the industry would
tptedily past into Amerioan hands.
In Britith Columbia we have mountain, enough to furnish posture for
til the goats in the universe, and our
olimtte is such ts to encourage the
hoptlhtt this new field of endeavor
might bt mtdt mott profitable to ut.
" while for tome of

ths Mftfic- e»Wnfljr with t view to
whether this valuable
onimtl migbt not bt profitably raised
in thit oountry. In thb, tain everything rite, it is important to begin

goats and goats. The best qualities of
mohair are obtained from thoroughbred animals only, and thc best material always commands the highest
price. Those who aro using large
quantities of the Angora goat fleece
declare that tho demand is large
and constant, and there is no fear of
overstocking thc market at least for
many, many years.

ear, the so-called labyrinth. This was
whu Dean Swift suffered from so long,
and, to tha physicians of hia day, so unaccountably. One of Us symptoms ls
temporary deafness. This distinguishes
It from all other forms.
Another form eonuaots Itself mainly
with the eye. Of this kind Is ths feeling
of giddiness, which some people have
when, being on a train at rest, another
train slowly passing deceives them Into
the idea that it la their own train which
has begun to move. The giddiness occurs at the moment when tn. false and
true aanaaUnns become confused .together.
In th« oue of the near-sighted, the
Internal muselea of ttt, era often being
unduly strained ln their .fort to converge the eye sufficiently {or tbe sight of
near objects, suddenly give way, when
the eyeballs turn -oat and the letters run
Into etch other. This ls accompanied
by a feeling of giddiness, eyeache, hcad-
aohe and sometimes nausea.
A third form oom.eots itself with some
alight i__ai_ir of the stomach, and occurs most often when the stomach Is
empty; There la* sudden swimming ln
the head, objeota seem to revolve, and
the person totters and perhaps fails.
The fourth form is surely of nervous
origin, and Is due to nervous exhaustion.
It may J» caused .y Intellectual overstrain, long-continued anxiety, physical
exouses, or the Immoderate use ot to-
baooo, alcohol, or tea. Elevated positions msy bring on an attack. It rarely results In actual falling, but oftener
ln the feeling of being about to fall.

the Fanon's Bad nslr-Onttlac V.ry Aptly
Bebak.d-.An Improved Crop.
Away down In Maine, In a region where
tho usages remain oa prlmltlvo as they
are anywhere ln tho United Mates, there
is an aged parson who performs not only
the ordinary clerical duties, preaching to
tho people of tho district and marrying
and burying them, but also turns an
honest penny by cutting their hair on
occasion.
The old parson Isn't exactly an artist
In this line, and Is distressingly absent-
minded, but thore Is no barber anywhere
In the neighborhood, and nobody there
cares much-about a Parker House cut
anyway.
One day 'Llje Jones, u old codger and
Jack at all trades of the neighborhood,
came to the parson to get his haircut,
ud the parson, who wu evidently meditating too deeply his next Sunday's sermon to note what he wu doing, out the
hair ln moat phenomenally ragged and
Irregular atyle.
In some places he had shorn tho hair
down to tho scalp, and tn others left lt
almost untouched, so thst when he had
finished his absent-minded task his sub-
iects hoad bad a weird and unkempt
ook that wu wonderful to behold.
"What shall I pay yc, parson?" he
uked.
"0, come ud mow the hazel brush
out baok of the bouse to-morrow," said
theparson.
When 'Llje got home his wife exclaimed:
"Meroy on me I what you been
n-dolng.'
"Qittln' my hair cut," ssid 'Llio.
" Laws a me, if the parson didn't doa
purty Job this time,''said she, "then
there ain't no truth In revelation 1"
Next day the parson had a funeral to
attend to, and when he got borne he
found tho man whose hair he had cut tho
day betore Just leaving the piece.
Be had mowed the hazel bush so that
In one spot thetops hod Just been mowed
off, ln another lt wu out halt nay down,
In nnother mowed to the ground, and In
another torn up by the roots. It wai
the sorriest-looking field that anybody
over saw.
"Why, I declare I" said the parson.
" What have you been doing?"
"Mowin' the hazel," said 'Llje.
"Mowin' lt? You've been manglln'
It," said the parson,
'Llje simply took off his hat, and presented his chaotic crown to the parson's
gaze.
"Well, well," sold he; "did I do
that? Well, come Into the bouee, aud
I'll cut it for you."
The parson did the best work that he
could tills time, considering the havoc
he had made the day before, and when
he bad finished 'Llje Jones took up hts
bush scythe again and—went home—

I wu young ln those days, oh, my darling!
With tiny fair heads at my knee;
We were young In tho sweet summer
weather,
On warm, golden suds by the sea;
Tet there, ln the sweet, solemn twilight,
A dream came to me.
Tbe small heads on pillows were lying,
And blight eyes wero dark tn oclipse;
The gay crimson popples of dreamland
Were pro-Bed to the Innocent lips,
And you, on the wet sends, wero watching
Dim phutoms of ships.
I thought, as they passed like a vision,
And slowly sailed ont In the night,
-Haw. swiftly the years would glide onward
And boar the wee ones from our sight,
And leave ut but grave men ud women.
To struggle md fight
I heard the soft words of ths lovers—
Tbeoldvrords that ever are new; i ,
The dear home wu dreary ud empty,
Save, darling, for me ud for you.
But Iorept to your heart in my weeping,
So tried ud so true.   .
I am old ln theu days, oh, my darling I
Too old tor the world and Ite ways;
I sit all alone In the twilight,
And watch the oak logs u they blue.
"She's growing so old, thedearmothcrl"
The tweet daughter uys,
Uy darling, the home nest ls empty;
I watched every bird u It flew;
The whole world Is empty ud dreary,
Bereft of the one love so true.
I weep with no strong heart to leu on,

__m_m.aa Bala. Thalr Own Trout,
It Is much outer, uys Stth Green, to
itock a stream thu to raise flsh la
ponds, because the young flsh wilt take
care of themselves muoh better than
anyone can take care of them, ud If
they are protected from duger until
they are about forty-five days old—
which Is about the time the flsh oulturlst
takes charge of them—until they are
ready to feed, they are then tolerably
ablo to look out for themselves.
In stocking a stream with trout, the
young flsh should be taken to Its head-
wai ers, or put into the springs an I little
rivulets which empty Into it.   As they
Si-ow larger, they will gradually settle
own stream, ud run up again to the
head-waters In tho fall tnd winter to
spawn.
When putting flsh Into a stream, do
not put them suddenly Into wnter much
warmer than that ot tho vessel In wbloh
they have been transported. They will
not bo so likely to be Injured by putting
them in water a few degrees colder; but
try to avoid all suddsn changae, and
gradually raise or lower th* temperature
of lhe water In which you bring them,
until It ls even with tbat of the stream
ln which they are to be placed.
Perhaps, ln no bruch of flsh culture,
are the results more Immediate, or mon
apparent, thu in restocking streams*—

Printing  Company
lijiicxa-BS.)
ON TBE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbia*) Newspaper and
Printing Coneem was purchased by a
joint stoek company composed of oitisens
ef New Westminster, to be known as tbe
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. The object of
tho new company is to continue ths publication of the British Coldmbux newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual Interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland/ 'There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The COLOMBIA)! will continue to ba entirely Independent in both Dominion and
provinoial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of snch schemes a
may bo considered in the publio Interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
statioucry Establishment in this oity
having been taken over by Mr, T. ft.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable thst a dally newspaper
ahonld be maintained in tbis eity, and
the new company asks for publio patronage on the ground that It ls engsged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publio welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on Its own merits and
supported only so long as Its polioy is
enconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business ohange all no*
oonnts due the concern must bs settled
without delay so that the books of tha
former company may be adjusted and
oloaed. Address all communications and

Accident.— Theodora Brown, lata
firat officer of the bark John Worster,
fell from the trettlowork at Departure
Bay, on Wednesday night, and was
killed. His body was found on Thursday morning. He was about 40 years
of age, and a German by birth. As
the cause of death was apparent, there
was no inquest.

No Emir Houses.—Vacant houses
are very difficult to discover at present
in Westminster. Mr. J. G. Blake, of
the 0. P. R. telegraph service, who
hai lately decided to remove to thii
city, is as yet unable to obtain a
dwelling houae. Conductor Trodden,
of the C. P. R., who will be Stationed
hereafter in Weitminiter instead of
Moody, hii experienced a similar difficulty.

Medical Council.—The medical
council met in Victoria on Saturday,
and the following gentlemen were
elected officers for the ensuing year:
Dr. Trew, president; Dr. Davie, vice-
president; Dr. Hannington, treasurer;
Dr. Milne, registrar and secretary.
The council adjourned, to meet again
on Tuesday, the 7th day of June uext,
for general business and tho examination of candidates.
A Neat Room.—The new quarters
of the city clerk and council in the
Hyack Hall presented u very neat and
creditable appearance lost evening. A
partition has heen put across the center
of the Hyack Hall, thus dividing the
hall into two separate rooms. The
second of these rooms forms the council chamber. One of the small anterooms in the rear la the clerk's office.
The wainicotting and partitions havo
been painted. A raised platform hal
been made for the mayor s deik. Altogether the councillors are to be congratulated on having secured such cosy
quarters for their deliberations.
Electric Light fok Westminster.
—At lut night's meeting of the counoil a communication was re id from J.
0. Armstrong on behalf of the electric
light company, asking permission to
puce poles on the streets for electric
light purposes. Some of the council-
Ion objected on the ground that they
knew nothing of the intentions of the
electric light company. Coun. Jaques
explained that a company had been
formed in thia city for the .purposo of
supplying electric light. Already the
machinery and dynamo had been obtained and the company now asked
permission to place tho poles. The
company claim that they can supply
electric light cheaper than light by
gu or coal oil.
A Queer Accident.—-A curious accident occurred at the Big Slide of the
Fraier river a few days ago. Ab some
men wen lowering a ton of sulphuric
acid and other goods in an iron tank
down the almost perpendicular Jacob's
ladder to the Foster mine the rope
parted. The load rushed down the
incline with fearful rapidity towards
the mill buildings. The workmon in
the mill nn to places of safety, mo-
mentarily expecting that Uie terrible
contents of the tank would scatter destruction far and wide, and perhaps
involve the whole' establishment in a
common ruin. Fortunately, the tank
rolled off the ladder, and striking a
boulder, was broken before the building wu reaohed. The acid gushed
out, destroying the goods, but doing
no other damage.

The Yukon Expedition.—Dr. Q.
H. Dswson, auistant director of the
Geological Snrtey of Canada, accora-
Ssnied by William Ugilvy, D. L. S.,
I. McConnall, and Alex. McEvoy,
have arrived on the cout. The following ia the programme of their surveying snd exploring operations in
the Yukon oountry: Dr. Dawson aud
usistant will proceed to Fort Wrangel
and up the Stickeen river to Dease
river, and down Ihe Dease to the
Liard river. They will then proceed
to the junction of the Pelly with tho
Lewis branch of the Yukon. A route
survey will be taken along the way
snd-tho most important pointa fixed
astronomically. The doctor will also
be able to obtain accurate geological
data cf Ihe whole route to be traversed
by the expedition. Mr. Ogilvy will
go in by Ohilcnot Inlet and Perrier
Pan, and remain during the winter
lomewhere on the Yukon. In th*
•pring they will prooeed to Perrier
Psn, making surveys all the way.
McDonnell will prooeed tothe junction
of the Dease and Diiard rivers and follow ths latter to its junction with the
McKeniie at Fort Simpson. Mr. Mc-
Connell will make a geological and
geographical survey of the country he
traverses. In tha fall it is probable
he will go south by the MeKentle to
either Edmonton or Carleton. The
results that it ii hoped will be achieved
by the expedition will be highly important to Ihis province and to the
Dominion, for it will determine the
ohsracter of what is thought to be a
c.untry rioh in mineral and other re*
sourcM,but whioh Isatpreunt almost a ferra iiMomita. The expedi
tion oould not b* In better hsnds, and
whslsver nsulti in attained will ba
the but possible that csn be secured.

Alas! He's Gom—A well known
musical professor, who came to this
city about eighteen months or so ago,
and whose penchant was the musical
tuition of the upper ten at (5 or so
per lesson, has gone where the woodbine twinoth, having left these part-
lost Thursday. The janitor of tbe
theatre grieves for his departure for
sundry back accounta due, and a dentist is also reported in an agitated
mind for a bill that he cannot now
very well collect. The teacher was a
maocaroni eater, with curly black hair,
ahort of stature, but withal a lion during his stay here. There is great
mourning| amongst certain of the elite
just now, but time heals old ions.
The professor is supposed to have
taken 97,600 in good Victoria money
with him.—Victoria Times.
The Mission—Last night many of
those benefited by Ihe mission gave
public expression to their gratitude, and Mrs. Hampson-Hemus addressed them very earnestly and to
each she gave a small book of Chris-
tion counsel and advice. To-night, in
the Skating Rink, the lost public
meeting in connection with the million will be held, when Mrs. Hampson-Hemus will deliver a gospel temperance addreis. We hope many who
have not yet heard this gifted and
most remarkable woman will be present to-night. The million of Mr. and
Mrs. Hampson-Hemus hu been the
means of accomplishing a great deal of
good. Through the influence of these
meetings many penons have been led
to enter upon a new life, and there is
no reason to doubt the permanent
character of the change. The addresses have been full of simplicity
and earnestness, and .hey ha.e been
characterized by a remarkable apprehension of the bible teaching and of
personal responsibility. The evangelists themselves have won the hearts of
all with whom they have eome in contact, and they are undoubtedly earnest
and unselfish, and wonderfully successful laborers in the causo whioh lies
so near their heirts, They seem to
be utterly free from sectarian prejudices, and anxious only that people
should forsake evil and embrace the
good, It is the wish of mnny true
hearts that the way may be opened
for the return of these people to this
city at some future time, and that
their consecrated labors everywhere
may produce an abundant harvest.
Mr. W. R. Lazier, Bailiff, kc, Belleville, writes; "I find Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil the best medicine I have ever
need in my stable. I havo used it for
bruises, scratches, wind puffs and cuts,
and every caso it gave the best satisfaction. We used it as a household remedy
for colds, bums, kc, and it ls a perfect
fianacea. It will remove warts by paras thom down end applying it occasion*
