000 Protestant native Ohriitianij in
1881 there were 417,000. The
Church moinhen , have inereased
during that time froin 52,000 to
113,000. In India, Oe.vlon, und
Burmah the number of ohureh mem>
bers has grown from 78,000 to Hi,-
000; so that their number doubles
in about twelve years, The churches
have grown from 2,970 to 4,538.
The million schools hard increased
from 2,241 to 3,703, and the number of boys taught in than from
66,000 to 117,000. The number of

teaching hai more than doubled,

Some years «go the parliament of
Canada, in secularising the clergy
reserves, deolared the desirability of
abolishing all semblance of a connection between church and state.
Now a Montreal court decides that
a Protestant owner of real, estate
can be obliged to pay a tax towards
the erection of a Roman Catholic
cathedral. We do not believe that
this decision will hold water. The
ground on which it was put was
thai the church fas erected for the
benefit of all, whioh is another way
of saying that a man has not a right,
to decide for himself whether he
ought to belong to a particular
ohureh. If. this be law, the demand
for the repeal of the constraining
law ii hot likely to be made in
whispers.
■A.• correspondent of an Ottawa
paper complains that Nova Scotia
hss three seats in the Dominion
cabinet, while Ontario has only four,
with a population equal to three. |
times that of Nova Scotia, Is it
not nearly time that the system of
representation by provinces in the
cabinet was abolished, and the. best
men taken from wherever they may
be found) If each: provinoe must
necessarily be represented, and if
Nora Scotia must have two or three
cabinet' ministere-^iflilis three at'
present — why should Manitoba,
British Oolumbia, Prince Edward
Island, and tbe Northwest Territories be left oiitt As a matter of
convenience, it is more necessary
that the western coast of the Dominion should hare one representative thtn .that Nova Scotia ahould
have three, or even two, and it
seisms ridiculous that Manitoba and
the Northwest Territories, which
have occupied more attention during
the past few years than any other
part of the Dominion, should be
without any representatives, while
Ontario has five and Quebec four.

British power la Africa is fading
away, according to Mr. Henry M
Stanley, who appears to have been
terribly disgusted to find Oermsn
power lupreme in Zaniibar. As
the Britiih government and Britiih
traden have for a hundred yean
tried to make lomething oat of Zaniibar and have failed, they were Iky
no meant sorry to hand orer the
duty of supplying the amiable sultan of that swampy and straggling
empire with musical boxes and good
advice on the slave question to the
Germans. At a witter of foet,
Britiih power in Africa was never
to firmly established and supreme
as it it now, bece*jse then never
were so many Englishmen in Africa.
France and Portugal may have been
making frantic efforts to drive Brit-
it)) tradm out of the Wut Gout
trade, but If to, tht* have only succeeded in multiplying them and in
increasing the influence of the British commissioners. It is in the
south, however, that the real increase of British power hai taken
place, for tbe Transvaal hat been
roconouired, not by soldiers with
rifles-but by minen with pickaxes.
The discovery of gold-bearing quarts
in that country has. caused itt invasion by an army of English-speaking gold diggers, who have token
peaceable possession pf the quarts
beds, established prosperous mining
towm of somo site, and the community whioh they form will, unless iti
growth it checked, be * larger one
than thtt of the Boon, beforo the
year is over. They are now actively
itriving to secure the rights of oiti-
tent of the republio, and if they do
io the Transvaal will toon become
ah English republic, not a Dutch
one. England'* exporta to Africa
were greater for 1886 than for any
previous year, to that Mr. Stanley,
alarm li neediest from a commercial
point of view. Be it, however,
right in wishing, for the take of
Zaniibar and ihe Congo. Free State,
that England and not Germany wot
dominant on that coast.—tfontnal

THE rORTtlOCESE BUDOET.
Lisbon, Apr. 14.—In the Portuguese
chamber of deputies today Senor
Dnarrallio, minister of finance, introduced the budget for 1887-88. It
places the kingdom's receipts at 200,-
000,000 francs, ordinary expenditures
at 209,000,000 franca and extraordinary expenditure! at 12,000,000 franca.

NO SALARY FOR UNDER*S«CBSTARY.
London, Apr. 14.—Balfour, chief
secretary for Ireland, intimated to the
house of commons this afternoon that
no salary would be attached with tbe
office of undeMeentary for Inland
made for Col. King Harman. The
government were aware, Balfour laid,
when they appointed the incumbent
thtt the appointment would be attacked. They had taken the highest legal
advice and hod been informed that
their action wu legal. In addition to
this, Balfour wid, the new office did
not involve, in acceptance by the memben of the house of commons, the necessity of his resigning and ro-contost-
ing for re-election, because office wu
not a place of profit but au emolument
of the crown. Gladstone save the
precedent! required Col. King Harmaii
to vacate hii teat and aeek re-election.
Gladstone uid that when ho reprre-
•oiited Oxford university he accepfcd
for a shprt period a place in the government without ulnry and, uuder
legal advice vacated his seat and stood
for re-election.
OlfAHIEBUn't STRONO UNllVAOI.
London, Apr. 14.—The language
used by Chamberlain, speaking at the
meeting in Ayr, hss elicited cries
against him and he bu received numerous letten warning him that he will
not leave Scotland alive. Speaking to
an assemblage of 25,000 penona .ham*
berlain laid: "The opponent, have

"Do you want instances of intuits offered womon. (Oheen and cries of
"Outrage, you slanderer") I did not

Ih the houu of commons Sir Lyon
Playfair resumed the debate on-the
coercion bill. While admittitg the
difficulty in certain eue* of procuring
convictions In Intend, he said that the
tacts were not so serious u the loscfa-

founded the   Week (Toronto) nnd
hu been almost constantly a con
.. -rflffltar to its columns, bos laid down
hit pen and gone to the southern
states for a  holiday.   It may be
-jDnbttdrt thero aw any writera ih
thia country more graceful in style
or more profound in thought than
Mr. Ocldwin Smith. His education
has been very extensive, and his
whole life has beeu devoted to suoh
pursuits' as tended to enlarge and
finish hii university acquirements.
He wot a great admirer of political
independence, and in his writings
and addresses has done not a little
to educate public opinion in this
. direction. In taking leave of tho
periodical with -which he has been
to intimately connected he says. • "I
have;the satisfaction of knowing
that Canada has now, in the Week,
,_' Well established literary organ in
good 'hand- I have also the satis-
faction ot teeing tliat the principle
of independence in journalism has
at last prevailed." Thero is a great
deal worthy of admiration in the
public utterances of Mr. Smith, but
oh the question of temperance reform he hot undoubtedly made a
serious-Wunder, and shown an extraordinary miwppreheniion of the
.utuation.
'■"■■■: ttt Federal Programme.,
A luminary of the speech from
, the throne delivered at the opening
of the Canadian parliament yesterday appeared  in' this, paper lust
night, and was- doubtless read with
interest by the people of the city.
Some days ago a correspondent at
; Washington telegraphed to the New
-; York Herald that the' retaliatory
'bill passed by congress would not be
. enforced against Canada because a.
basis of settlement of the fishery
question hod   been agreed  upon.
People have been wondering whether
thit announcement could be relied
1 upon, and whether; if true, the bails
would turn out to be another surrender to tne United States.   It has
como to be a rule tbat when Great
Britain enter*, into a diplomatic
oontrat with the United States, the
Yankees come out every time on
top.   In the speech from the throne
nothing is taid which throws light
PDpn „U*e proposed basis of settle-
■oiut, but if that basil is satisfactory to Canada, as intimated, every
one ..will be glad that a troublesome
dispute that might .possibly have
-interrupted  seriously the friendly
relation!  existing  between  Great
Britain and Canada and the United
Statei, it in a fair way towards set-
dement on an equitable basis,   The
horrors of war are too awful to be
contemplated with equanimity, and
it will be a bad day for both Britain and the United Statei when
they have to resort to force of arms
to settle international disputes. The
people of British Oolumbia especially
will be glad to know that amendment! art to be mode in the laws
relating to the government of rail
-nyi and Chinese immigration. The
whole country west of Ontario is
crying out for relief from railway
monopoly, and the recent tremendous . advance in 0. P. R. freights
will intensify the demand for govemment interference to that common carriers may be aubject to the
general interests of the state.  With
respect to Ohinese immigration, it
hot been for tome time evident that
the regulations now existing ore not
nfleient to carry oot the intention
of the rettriction act.   "For ways
that are dark and tricks that are
vain, the heathen Chinee is pecu
Hu. r It would require an army of
VialBcials to enforce the regulations
to as to prevent evasion by these
ecatty people, and it will tax the
lagMMity of our legislation to con
ttreet a barrier, that will prevent
them from overruling thit province
"devouring itt. substance like a
M M locuitt.   We are all look-
tfnr» mining boom in the immediate future.   As soon as this boom
etts in, ther* ii certain td be a boom
in Chinese immigration.     If our
rioh qnorta mines should happen to
fall -onto tha handa of these people,
'H will be a misfortune from whioh
the province will never recover.   It
yns hoped that' the  government
would have been enabled. to on-
Monoo definitely itt abandonment
-of the policy of railway disallowance In British Oolumbia and Manitoba.   The nheence of my reference
to thii subject in the speech does
Si neceuarily imply that there will
no change of policy, but the bot
thai within the past few dayi the
jmtjk of Manitoba have been ofl-
eially notiled ef tht government's

N THS 10TH OF JANUARY, 1187,
the Coiumbus Nswspaper and
Printing Coneem wis purohmed hy a
joint stoek oompany composed of citizens
el New Westminster, to be known Is the
" Britisli' CalMiblin Printing Co.,
Lindted.", ..The ooucern has been tor
nearly a yes.r owned and controlled by
the British Colnmliln Stationety and
Printing Company, oi New Westminster
Victorin nnd Vinoouvcr. The object of
tho new company is to continue'the pub*
licntion of the British CoM'Maus news*
p»|H'i- nml carry ou .uciMral printing and
publishing emi*™, coalrolled entirely hy
those whose ludividusl interest it will be
to promote the develepmeat, especially
of the Mainland. There will bo no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the roanagmsnt of the establishment, nnd Its patrons may rely upon
rcceiviug fnll value for their money.
The CoLDHBiAH will continue to be entirely Independent in both Dominion ahd
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to thi ndvsncemsut of inch schemes a.
may be cnnnlileretl in the publio interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
•ny other b—litesi, the bosk and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in hii own name asd lor his own benofi t".
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
ihould be maintained In this oity, and
the new oompany asks for publie patronage on the ground tbat It is engaged in
an entorpr.se colonlsted to promote ths
public walfin. It laki that the. Col-
umsus he judged on lie owe merits aad
supported only so long as Its policy Is
enceniiitt with its profusions. In con*
sequsnee of this huslnne ehange all ae-
counts due the concern must be tattled
without delay so that the books of tha
former oompany may he adjneted and
oloaed. Addms all communications and

Resident graduates of Queen's Uni-

Protests have been entered against

No Time Like tbe Present for, seeking medicinal aid when what are foolishly called "minor ailments" minifest
themselves. There are no "minor" ail*
ments. Every symptom is the herald of
a disease, every lapu from a state of
health should be remedied at once, or
disastrous consequences are likely to foi*
low. Incipient dyspepsia, alight costive*
ness. a tendency to hlUousneas, should
be promptly counteracted with Northrop
k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery ahd
great Blood Purifier, and the system
thus shielded from worse conscauences.
Satisfactory Collateral.
The other morning u the janitor of
a bank not very far from the Palace
opened the door he wu surprised tp
observe three rather tired looking citizens seated on the Heps, the centre
oneof whom held a sealed envelope
carefully in sight of.his companions.
"Want to make a deposit, gentlemen ?" uked the cubier, who shortly
arrived.   " Step inside."
"No, I want to negotiate) a loan,"
uid the man with the envelope, " ud
there aint a minute to lose. I want

"What oollatenli, have you-gov-

"Government nothin'. I've got

" Om't help It, sir. Never heard o"
such a thing," uid tbe cuhier, and
the disappointed applicant ud frienda
drifted sadly out. On ths comer
they met the bank's president, who
wu hiniselt just from a quist little

into the bank, seised a bag of twenties,
and followed ths trio, In about; tsn

an extra handful of twentiu, which

The Confederation Lite,
1 he annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will bo found
In another column. Tbe facta revealed
in the account, and tho Directors' report
thoroughly tastily the ecouiiumi which
Ine ihernoMsrs present bestowed upon
the luutfsment. Thanka to the resolute
manner in which the Company hu declined te embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working exaeniM of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 ud 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 tho death
olaims—-which in a company of the age of
theCoohdention Lifo is something to be
proud h|. The ass ts and liabilities are
Mt forth In minute detail, and the table,
•how that, after making allowance for all
pouible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of 1282,199
over -abilities and capital combined.
The increase in the asset! in the laat year
wu 1280,890. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
tbe Company, vis;—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, un*
wise, or extravagant expenditure for the
eake merely of lucreuing new business."

White Bums MomnrENTa.— White
Bronze Is a comparatively new substance,
end hu come into large use, rapidly, for
speoial purposes in this country. It hu
been hand to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments,, that companies
have hou for ume time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, sud St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styli.. nom experiment! made by
theu companiss, it has been fonnd that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—It is practically indestructible. White' Bronse being non-
corrosive Shd unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronse,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments ara cut from refined slue, and are
given their sparkling appearance by thc
und blut, und being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which outs the eurface, but doei not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide which
formi on thii bronze is indistructible by
the elements; It cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate It, although the film ii io thin u to be im*
meunnble. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.—-jjWon Journal qf Commerce. Cbu. J. Robson, New Westmlniter, h igent for the White Broun
