Provincial Leitlslnture.
Feb. 21 and 22.—Mr. Martin
risked for a committee composed of
Hon. Mr. Davie and Messrs. Mason,
Bole, Fry, rind the mover, to inquire
into tlie proceed are which governs
the office of sheriff, and the fees that
are attached to the office. The
mover said much dissatisfaction existed with respect to this matter.
Mr. Bole said the sheriffs' fees were
exorbitant, and brought much odium
upon the lawyers. He thought there
should be fewer sheriffs and that
they should be better men. Resolution carried.—A long and unprofitable discussion took placo respecting changes in the cabinet, and the
opposition contended that some
members of it were occupying an illegal position. Hon. Mr. Davie
said the law provided a heavy pen-
nlty for such cases as had been
named, and tho opposition had the
remedy in its own hands.--Mr.
Ladner moved for information respecting the Sumas dyking lands.
Hon. Mr. Bobson said the papers
could not be produced while negotiations were pending. Mr. Ladner
pressed his motion, but was finally
persuaded to withdraw it.—Mr.
Semlin moved for papers connected
with the granting of licenses at Kock
Creek. The complaint was that a
person named Steve Tanner had applied for a license which had not
yet been issued. Hon. Mr. Davie
explained that a license had virtually been granted, and that the delay
had arisen from the application having been made through the wrong
channel.—Among other notices of
motion, Mr. Bole gave notice that
ho would move an address asking
that steps be taken to have the defences of the province placed in a
more efficient state by providing
better artillery and ammunition;
by the enrolment of now'-corps at
Westminster, Vancouver and Nanaimo; by making provision for the
organization and enrolment of the
new militia reserves; by providing
better drill sheds and proper magazines for the storage of arms and
ammunition; by causing surveys to
be made by competent officers so as
to show the best system of fortifying
Westminster, Nanaime and Vancouver.—Petitions for a new charter
for Westminster city were presented, and also for a charter to construct a tramway from the 0. P. R.
to Harrison hot springs.—On
motion of Mr. Ladner, seconded by
Mr, Bole, a committee consisting of
Messre. Fry, Thomson, Martin, Orr,
and Semlin was appointed to enquire
into the reason why the gazetted
road from tho mouth of Chiluktlinn
slough, Westminster district, hud
been fenced so as not to allow the
requisite width of 66 feet—Mr.
Humphreys moved for a committee
to consider the question of administering intestate estates. He said
the resolution was brought forward
to ascertain what became of such
estates, and to simplify and cheapen
the administration of them.—Mr.
Semlin moved a resolution asking
for the establishment of a mail service to Rock Creek through British
Columbia.—In reply to Mr. Beaven,
Hon. Mr. Davie said Col. Baker and
Hon. V. W. Aylmer had been granted a lease on Perry Creok, Kootenny, for 25 years at $209 on condition
that they expended in the aggregate
(27,000 on the property during the
first 4 years, and 82,000 a year
thereafter until the expiration ofthe
lease. A condition of the lease is
that no Ohinese shall be employed.
—Mr. Ladner asked if the government intended to take any steps to
prevent the importation of rabbits,
to which the Hon. Mr. Hobson replied: "Not until they are in possession of more definite information."
—ln reply to Mr. Beaven it was
stated that a crown grant had been
issued to Hon. Mr. Turner for 640
acres of land in Kamloops district
for which application had been made
on 2nd March, 1887.—A long debate took place on the foreign capital bill nnd on tho withdrawal of
the Sun Francisco steamship subsidy.
—Mr. Higgins' ballot amendment
bill was discussed at considerable
length. The members generally
agreed that it would be better to
have tlio ballots counted at each
polling division, although some were
of opinion that the proposed ohanges
would destroy the secrecy of the
ballot.—Mr, Higgins gave notice
tlmt lie would offer a resolution expressing regret that the rights of
British subjects in Hohrings Sea had
not been determined by the fishery
commission, and protesting ngainst
the sacrifice of the interests of
llritish Columbia fishermen.
Yesterday the time nf the house
was taken up by a discussion of Mr.
Heaven's resolution of impeachment
iigniiist, lion. Mr. Turner for having
signed the letter with whioh Mr.
Duncan went to Washington for the
purpose of securing land in Alaska
for the Metlakahtla Indians. Hon.
Mr. Turner said he had signed the
letter in consequence of his dealings
with Mr. Duncan and tbe Indians.
He did not encourage them to leave
theprovince.but hod tried to persuade
them to remain. Ool. Baker moved
that as Mr. Turner had been elected
to the assembly since signing the
letter, the bouse should be satisfied.
The debate was adjourned,

LANDLORDS AND TENANTS.
Ddbun, Feb. 23.—Sir H. Burke,
who owns the estates at Woodford, baa
surrendered to the plan offered by his
tenants, and a statement has been
made in accordance with it to the satisfaction of all. Only Lord Clanric-
arde and Mrs. Lewis now hold out in
that district against their tenants. The
terms which Sir B. Burke has granted to hia tenants at Woodford are a 25
Eer cent, reduction on their rent, and
as given them the legal coals involved.
He will reinstate the tenants who wore
evicted and pay the costs ot their
maintenance while evicted. Mr. Michael McOartan, M. P., ha* granted to
his tenants a reduction of 85 per cent,
in their rent.
Father Kennedy was sentenced today, together with eightfarmers, to two
months' imprisonment, for attending
meetings of the suppressed branches of
the National League at Newmarket
and Cork.
COMMENTS ON THI TBEATY.
London, Feb. 23.—Few of the papers comment on the fisheries treaty.
The rimes Bays that the treaty is no
such one-sided affair as depicted. Canada makes certain concessions of no
substantial importance to herself, and
in return she has her rights clearly
recognized. The Buccess of the treaty
from a British point of view depends
upon its reception in Oanada. Canadian opinion must not, however, be
judged from the adverse comments of
one or two Toronto journals, which
may not yet have mastered the treaty,
and certainly not from those papers
predisposed in favor of commercial
union, and whioh are naturally displeased to have lost a chance to apply
their panacea. But it will be surprising if the majority of Canadians do not
highly appreciate the settlement aimed
at.
THE IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.
London, Feb. 23.—In tho house of
lord) this evening Lord Stratheden and
Campbell, in moving that papers regarding thl events in Bulgaria be produced, suggested that the British government should initiate a conference
of the powers over the affairs of Bulgaria, a situation whioh, he said,
Prince Bismarck would be ready to
support. Lord Salisbury promised to
submit the papers, but replied he did
not think a conference desirable. The
Berlin treaty already settled it that
the election of a prince of Bulgaria
must be unanimously approved of by
the powers. Lord Salisbury believed
that a change of opinion effected
through the ordinary diplomatic channels would overcome the existing differences. Mr. Shaw-Lefevre moved
as an amendment to the address in reply to the Queen's speech, the necessity of a measure dealing with the arrears of excessive rents in Ireland.
He accused the chief Irish secretary,
Mr. Balfour, of favoring landlords
like Lord Clanricarde. Mr. Balfour
said that fair rents had been fixed by
the tribunal aot of 1881, and that it
was unreasonable tu demand that tenants be relieved ol arrears arising under the terms so fixed. Mr. Shaw-
Lefevrc responded that only about 10
por cent, of Lord Clanricarde'a rents
were judicially fixed. Mr. Timothy
Henley and other Irish mom hers spoke
on the aame subject. Mr. Shaw-Le-
fevro's amendment wns rejected by a
vote of 261 to 186. Tho repurt on tho
addross waa then adopted.

of snpplies, which the miners

of the order in reducing ths price of
supplies is virtually to advance th*
miners' wages.

The Victoria "fi'mat is endulging
a great deal in the sledge-hummer
style that has brought into contempt
so many party journals in the cast.
In a late issue it represents Mr.
Beaven as "applying the whip to
the president of the council" (Hon.
Mr. Dunsmuir), who was "writhing
under the lash." Wo wero not
aware that a whipping post had
been set up in our legislature. If it
really has, ono wonders how such
persons as the writer of the Times
and the pugilistic member for Oomox, whom the scribo pretends so
ardently to admire, manage to keep
beyond the reach of its persuasive
eloquence.
A resolution has been passed by
tlie public school board of Victoria
asking that the school act be amended so as to permit municipalities to
supplement the government school
grants. It is proposed that provis
ion be made under which the municipal school tax may be collected
and placed to the credit of the treasurer of the school board; and, also,
that the municipalities may issue
debentures for school purposes. The
committee who recommended these
changes stated that Hon. Mr. Robson, minister of education, had signified his approval of them. In a
speech delivered several weeks ago
Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir intimated that
a change in the present system of
maintaining schools was most desirable. From these facts we infer
that such a change may be expected,
but whether a bill of this kind will
be introduced at the present session
has not been stated. The Victoria
board also recommended that graduates of any college of Canada or
Great Britain, or teachers holding
first-class certificates from other
provinces, upon passing an examination on the science of education
and methods of teaching, be admitted on equal standing in this  pro-
As we expected, Mr. Humphreys
and his friends who follow him in
the house have publicly declined to
take np the impeachment matter before the committee appointed to
take evidence. There is an opinion
widely prevailing that this was the
very programme the member for
Comox had marked ont for himself.
In moving his resolutions of impeachment he declared emphatically that
he would accept nothing but a royal
commission appointed by imperial
authority. It is hardly possible that
he did not know that such a demand
would be earnestly resisted by the
government, and would certainly bo
defeated. Even Mr. Beaven ventured to remark that such a proposal simply meant an indefinite postponement of the question; but Mr.
Humphreys refused to recede. It
looks very much as if he felt that
the grave charges he had made could
not be sustained, and that the defeat of his resolution would be the
simplest way of letting himself out
of a most embarrassing predicament.
His refusal to go before the comtni-
tee seems to confirm that view. A
few days ago we remarked that if
he had evidence wherewith to sustain his charge, the committee would
afford him an excellent means of
placing that evidence before the
public, who are very well able to
judge whether the charge is proven
or not. But he has chosen to decline, and we cannot help inferring
that it is not the truth ho is seeking, but a means by which he may
be able to injure the reputation of
the president of the council whom
he so cordially hates.
From Halifax to Vancouver, and
from Winnipeg to New Orleans, tho
press of the continent is now wrestling with the fishery treaty. We
agree with the Victoria Colonist
when it remarks that "to criticise,
with some judgment, a trinity of
such great length and such vast importance requires something moro
than a passing glance." It requires,
In fact, a pretty thorough knowledge of the bays and inlets of the
eastern Canadian coast, and a knowledge alio of the value of the various
fishing grounds, So far as opinions
have reached us they are certainly
remarkably divergent. The American press does not seem to take
kindly to the treaty, and thero is
very serious ground for suspecting
that it will not be ratified by congress. The Canadian press is very
much divided. In Canada we have
very little independent journalism,
tnd, consequently, a large majority
ol Canadian newspapers will discuss the treaty simple as a party
measure.   It has  been m
by the Conservative party, and
Conservative journals all along the
line will endeavor to persuade themselves that it is a most satisfactory
solution of a most perplexing question. Opinions coming from such
sources are of very little importance.
They do not represent public sentiment so muoh as the exigencies of
party. We shall be influenced far
more bfMie views of suoh journals
as the Toronto Week, the Mail, the
Montreal Herald, and the Montreal
Witnest than by a hundred party
journals Uk* the Globe, tbe Umpire,
thoOM»w» Ctiiem, the Montreal
Gtmtbs, or the Victoria Colonist.
By the tray, we observe that our
friend of tho Vancouvor Herald frills
into tho error of supposing that the
treaty, if ratified, will socuro tlio
free entry of Canadian fish into
American markets. There is nothing
of the kind in the treaty itself. If
it had secured this, the concession
would have been of the greatest val
ue to our fishermen, and mignt have
been a fair oft-set to the advantages
we proposo to surrender.'
Faoijed Out.-—Nono but those who
havo becomo fagged out know what a
depressed, miserable feeling it is. AU
strength is gone, and despondency has
taken hold of the sufferers. They feci
as though there is nothing to live for.
There, however, is a cure—one box of
Pavioeleo's Vegetable Tills will do worr-
ders ia restoring health and strength.

Scrofula
Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It in often inherited,
but may bo the result of improper vaccination, mercurial poison, uncleanlincss,
and various othor causes. Chronic Soros,
Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in some caaes, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood. This disease can b«
cured by tho use of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

Worms that Eat Steel Kails,
The existence has just been discovered of
a detestable microbe which feeds upon iron
with as,much gluttony as the phylloxera
upon the vine. Some time ago tlie greatest
.consternation existed among the engineers
employed on the railway at Ilageti by the
accidents occuring always an thu same place
proving that some terrible defect must exist
'either in the material or the construction of
the mils. The tiermmi (iovenunent directed
un inquiry to be made and a Commission ol
i Surveillance to be forined for the purpose ol
i maintaining constant watch at the spot where
ithc accidents—one of them attended with
loss of life—hail occured. It was not, however, until after six months had clasped that
the surface of the r.iils appealed to be corroded, as if bv acid, to the extent of two
yards. The rail was taken up ami broken,
and it was perceived that it wns literally
fhollowcd out by a thin gray worm, to which
■»thc qualification of "niiloverous" was assigned, nnd by which name it is lo be classed
fn natural history. The worm is said to be
two centimetres iu lenglli and of the size ol
the prong of a silver fork in circumference.
h is of a light gray color, and on the head
curries two little glands lillcd with a corrosive
secretion, which is ejected every ten minutes
i-'pon the Iron. This liquid renders tlie iron
,ot't and spongy, and of the color of rust, and
it is then greedily devoured by the insect.
.."There is no exaggeration," says the official
Veportof the commission, "in tho assertion
.hut this creature, for its kind, is one of tho
uost voracious kind, for it has devoured
:hirty-six kilogrammes of mil in a fort*
light."
Queen Victoria's Baby Thins:*].
One of the features of tho celebration of
fQuoen Victoria's jubilee was an exhibition of
Ua number of playthings and articles of wear-
yi'S apparel that helongpd to the Queen in
ilicr  infancy  und  early childhood.    Tho
^Ir^sses, the stockings, and even the bibs of
Kitu Queen had been preserved, aad were
hown in this exhibition.
' The playthings included the favorite d<,ll
if the Queen's early childhood, or rather
he ghost of her favorite doll, for it had lost
:ii arm, an eye, an car, and probably, thtoi,«!i
ivcare not so informed, the tin of its nose.
A great deal of (he doll's life-blood   thnt is
o say, its sawdust--had gone out through a
ivound in its chest, and it wus almost entirely
laid.  Its mouth was parted, as if it wero
■yingto ipeakI      -     j (If *■ ** '
There was n pair of little slippers in tlio
xhtbitlun and the sight of them inspired
Vie writer to imagine them traversing the
"JHiole earth through the possessions of tlie
fir it ish crown; tramping through Ireland,
'through Canada, through the British South
Sen Islands, through South Africa, through
Australia and India and Cyprus and Malta,
nd past Gibraltar homeward. Aloug march
or a pair of baby slippers.
One little stocking, whoso mate was gone,
Ws exhibited all by itself.  There was a
treat deal of wondering where tho other
'yoking was, but nobody knew.
Not all the articles in the exhibition per*
uincd to Queen Victoria's infancy.   One
•if thu things shown was a piece of her wed*
ing cake, so hard, it is said, that not even ti
imisliing native of India could have eaten it.
An Esquimaux Demigod.
I Since remote ages, from Innuit father to
hon, han been handed down this legend—and
ns my father told it to mc, so I tell it again
fo you—that whosoever boldly lays down his
►fcoods and weapons, and bravely turning his
gmck on the outer world, flees fasting into
[waste and desert places, to him as a friend
■•hall Tornarsuk come,  lie shall becomo a
Kivigtok.   Tho strongest bear, tho largest
vhule, the most fcrclous walrus shall fall
ictims to his lance.  The reludeer shall not
listance him iu speed, and even the great
** miintik that once roamed over these valleys
Irpjiliall full an easy prey to him,   He shall
Iniwiiu Ilka the scat, he(shall run as the deer,
||ihe shall climb as the uuiimnk, and no harm
Epf hail come to him.   He shall live to such ago
"dhiit even a Grccnlandcr cannot count the
fenerations whieh shall come cud go in his
jiime.   And more, he shall know all things
■jljjoth on sea and land, in the fair inland
■'taunt ry nnd oii the barren coast.  Ho shall
*k now the speech of birds, and beast, and iish,
mid that which they can do he nlso shall bo
Me to do. And the coming and going of his
jcnouiy he shall know, so tlmt he can scare
:he seal which he would strike or the deer
.itie would shoot.  That which ho can do
ijigaiust his enemy, the same can he do for his
jrlcml.   But to sec theso wonders, to have
these powers, it is needful with brave heart,
Jelling none and speaking no word, for the
Siitiuit hunter to go forth fasting and fearing
■Jiot.  In this way only cau oue be a Kivigtok.
Why ho was Shot.
" All through the wat, says the Inter-Ocean,
it was very difficult to make the volunteer
soldiers understand that they were guilty ot
any ollensc when they left the army and
slipped oil' for a two weeks' visit at'home.
I'lley laughed al Uie idea that this was de*
icrtiou. But after two or three experiments
it thi1; hind a man became a little reckless.
; I' lie could stay two weeks at home, why not
stay two months, and if he could stay two
months, why not six months? One poor
fellow reasoned in this way and convinced
himself that he was doing his duty like a man
because he was working to support his
mother. When he was arrested nsa deserter
he laughed over the matter, and he laughed
at the fears of tha boys when he was returned
to the camp under guard. But one night
there came an order tbat this man be shot
tbe next tnorningat lOo'clock, This cleared
llio mists and doubts from his mind, and he
said to lilsold comrades that from the minute
tlie order was read to him he was a new man,
bul tlmt not before that minute had he realized that he had been guilty of any crime,
lie was shot the next day in preaeuco of his
brigade, aud died like a soldier.
Bound to Got tho Book.
A former old bachelor, who is a great lover
of books, employed nu old woman to take
euro of his rooms. The work of arranging
and dusting the library led Martha to he
smitten with a taste for reading. She bi'gftu
to spend all her earnings in buyitig books.
Not long ago she entered the library with a
parcel of books picked up at a book stall.
Iler employer, seizing one of the books, exclaimed : '.'How much .did you give for this?"
"Tliirty cents/1 replied Martha.
"Thirty cents! Whv, this b io1c is worth
$3000," cried the collector. "1*11 give you
(5 for it."
"You have just told uie, sir, it It worth
{3000.   I will not *-ell it for less."
The book was a tiist edition, extremely
rare, of Montaigne. The servant would not
take less than $;SU0U. This was more than the
bookworm would agree to pay for it. He
thought the matter over for a month. Filially
said he to himself: "This woman takes gooli
care of me. She ^ceius to have the same
passion for old books that I have. Win
should I not marry her? I should then hav'i
my Montaigue." lie pupped tbe question
-Wns accepted; and the old servant broujju.
l.im the book by way of a dowry.

Miss Sawyer, who is poor, was introduced nt a lunch party to Miss Taylor,
who is rich, uml was coldly received.
Miss Sawyer is bright and knows ker

A Brief Letter.

Chicken Croquettes.
Here is an excellentteceipt for chicken
itroquettes, which are so popular now
\Lnd so frequent y served with salads nt
its vening parties:  Boil two medium-sized
ifchickens until they are  very tender,
'fchop them flue, add ono pint of crenin,
Id most half a pound of butter, with a
_liberal allowance of salt and pepper. The
1 busiest way to shape these is to press
uome   of   the   mixture  firmly   into
■mall molds, or shallow cups will do;
fry them in hot lard until they nre
brown; some cooks prefer salad oil to
gutter, but clarified butter gives a much
wore agreeable flavor and a  better
jolor.

A Coiislilcrnte Miss.
A cuto little girl of three is the delight of a Washington boulevard family
for her prettiness as well ns for the bright
and odd things she says. The other day
n company of militia passed down the
street iu front of her home aud her
minute black-and-tun barked luriously
through the window-pane at them. The
little girl arose in alarm and said, "Shut
tho door, mammal I'ido will bite the
army."

Smith—"Do you know a young man
named Tom Beverly ?"
Jones—"I do."
"Well, he wants a position in my ofllco
as cashier, is ho a good business man;
is he capable?"
"Capable 1 I should say id. He is
capable of anything. He was private

several years. There is nothlug he is
not capable of doing,"

Business Man—"Well, thht is no particular disadvantage, although for Ihe

"Did you ever notice that it applies

"H Saved My Life"
Is • eommon expression, often hoard
Irom those who have realized, by per-
•ond ns., the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. — I cannot say enough
in praise ot Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing aa I do that, hut tor its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Toz.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of tho Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and cxpectorautn,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did io, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once. By continued use
thia mediolne cured my cough, and, I
■m Satisfied, saved my life.-Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second it., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
(or over a year, and sincerely believe 1
should have been in my grave, bad it
not teen for this medicine. It has cured
ms of k dangerous affection of the lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Provinco of Ontario.
Ayer's Chen? Pectoral saved ray life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
whieh settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies thoy
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry'Pectoral. Two bottles of this nrcilioino
completely restored my health. —Lizzie

Capt. Main, of the schooner Northern Light, which arrived in port yeaterday, reports that on Feb. Ilth,
when between, Nanaimo light and Protection Island, he discovered a small
boat floating bottom upwards. The
schooner was hove to and the boat
picked up. On righting the boat a
dark felt bat drifted cut and sunk before it could bo reached. Nothing
else wub ftiunii in the boat, and there
is nothing about it to lmvc any clue ns
to who tbo owner might be. Whether
it is u case of drowning or simply a
boat adrift, is a mystery yet to bo
solved.
Jotrrnnlhtic Enterprise,
On the 18th inst. a carefully prepared synopsis of statistics from tho provincial bluo book relating to births,
marriages and deaths fur 1880 appeared
in this journal. On the 22nd inst,
this synopsis was copied in the Victoria Times, without credit, the only important change made being tho substitution of 1887 for 1880—which is an
error, aiuce the vital statistics for 1887
have not been mndo public. On the
23rd inst. the same synopsis, with a
few omissions, appeared in the Vancouver News as a telegraphic despatch
from Victoria. Inasmuch as tho blue-
book from which we compiled the
synopsis would, in the natural course
of events, reach Victoria and Vancouver before reaching this office, the enterprise displayed by these two journals is certainly remarkable.
A Feollftk Han.
A mnn named Jenkins, who hns been
drinking very hard of late, started out
at an early hour this morning to enjoy
himself. His first nppearauco was on
Columbia street,, where he appeared in
an almost nude state, and disponed
himself for n time, much to his own
apparent satisfaction. Having finished
that part of the exhibition ho went to
his room and dretsed, and then proceeded to Front street, whero he wus
Boon actively engaged in chasing a cow,
which he made vain etlbrts to catch by
the tail. The cow huving distanced
him, Jenkins started up the Btreet,
using extremely prufane language and
making himself generally obnoxious,
Constable I'ource. who was looking for
Jenkins, came across him near the corner of Mary street aud made him a
prisoner, .Tonkins made every possible endeavor to escape, and iu the
struggle Constable Peavce had his
trowsers torn, but hu stuck to his prisoner and landed him safely iu the
lock-up.
Onr Defence* anil ltr ft-inters,
Mr. Bole has introduced a motion iu
the house requesting that representations be made to the Dominion govern,
ment to take stops towards developing
and placing on u better footing, both
as regards the number, arms, equip
ment, enrolment, and pay of the active
and reserve militia of this province.
Mr. Bole wishes the gnvernmont to
provide modern artillery in placo uf
the guns now in use. The heavy guns
supplied to tho artillery of this province would'be useless for defence in
opposing the cannon now used by all
civilized nations, and tho request that
more modern armament bo supplied is
uot only a proper one but absolutely
necessary for our protection. Mr.
Hole's motion nlso includes the organizing of new corps at Westminster,
Vancouver and other portions of the
province, organizing regimental districts, and providing more suitable drill
sheds and magazines. All of these
items are very important, and none of
them should bo overlooked by tho federal government when taking the subject under consideration. At Vancouver and Nanaimo, both towns of importance, there is nothing in tho shape
of a military body to cill on ju case of
any sudden emergency, aud all through
the interior, where settlors and ranch-
era are exposed to raids by the Indians,
the only means of defence is an occasional provincial policeman, which
means no defence at all. The matter
of drill sheds is one of tho utmost importance. The buildings nt present
provided are small, incomplete, and
not by any means suitable to the purpose. The drill shed in this city is nut
large enough to practice n company in,
and Ihe armories aro simply disgraceful. It is to bo hoped when these matters are explained to the Dominion
houao tho true state of affairs will be
clearly shown, and the urgency of attention being given them, forcibly expressed. Whatever ultimate success
the motion meets with, Mr. Bole will
hnve earned Iho thanks of every militiaman in the provinco for his efforts
on thoir behalf.

bibles on the mainland of British Columbia was extremely siftisfactory, but
on Vancouver Island very littlo had

Port Simpsox, Feb. 8.—Notwithstanding all that has beon said, the
whiskey trade between this port and
Alaska goes on briskly. On a fino
Sunday morning last fall men wero
seen rolling whiskey barrels ouL uf ono
of the Bhops, loading up their bonis,
and starting off for Alaska. Lut Sundny morning, about two o'clock, two
other craft1' loaded np and wont off
with #1,001 worth of tho stuff. Is it any
wonder if the reverence of tho Indiana
for tho Lord's day and their respect
for our laws, are becoming less every
day while this sort of thing noes on
right before thoir eyes- -when tho government grants people license to Bell
this pernicious stuff, and it ia sold by
men holding commissions of thu peace!
All theso things tend, to lessuii the cun
fidence of the Indians in the government; nnd when the land trouble is
added, they begin to any, If wc go to
Alaska wc shall bo at peace, and shall
be be better ablo to protect our children and young peoplo from liquor and
its ovil eli'ect*.
[We are afraid the linlimis would
not find the laws and usages of Alaska
any better than tlioso prevailing at
Port Simpson. The picture drawn to
represent the social and commercial
customs of that territory by ita own
governor is certainly by no means reassuring.—En.]

St. Pbtbuhbcuo, Feb. 23.—The Official Messenger to-day publishes tho
following: "Tho Berlin treaty forms
the basis of tho order of tilings established in the B.ilkau ►tales iu pursuance of the power*' understanding,
contributing the only international
guarantee against tlio convulsions
which would he dangerous to tho future of the young Balkan Btates. From
this point of view, Russia has regarded
the events whieh have occurred in
Bulgaria since Prince Alexander took
his departure, and Prince Ferdinand
came to throne, n forcible assumption
of the princely power, and un infringement of the Berlin treaty, wherefore
Russia refused to recognize tho legality
of Prince Ferdinand's rule. Russia
has tried to induce tho cabinets of the
other countries to take tho sumo view
in accordance with the uuanimous desire to terminate the existing alarm.
Iu this stale of affairs Russia considered that it was her duty to try lo obtain
from tho powers an aHirmution nf the
inviolability of a treaty as a nocesaity
for thorett-jmtionof the legal status
of Bulgaria. The natural consequence
uf auch declarations must be representations made at Constantinople to induce the sultan to convince the Bulgarians that Prince Ferdinand rules
illegally, and is merely a robber of
power. Bulgaria owes her existence
to tho sacrifices and efforts made by
Russia, which country alone continues
to sympathize with and grieve at her
trials. The position whioh Russia
maintains towards Bulgaria is one
equally aloof from prejudice on tha
ono hand and partiality on tlie other,"
