The three principal cities of tho
province, Westminster, Victoria
und Vancouver, havo till the opportunities of growth atid advancement
if they will but take advantage «f
them. No one of thetn can hope to
monopolise all the trade of the
country, nnd anv effort to do that
will only react prejudicially- on the
city attempting it. In the past,
and before the railway was built,
Victoria hud necessarily, from her
location and population, almost nil
the wholesale and shipping business.
But this is now changed, and tlie
mainland and up-country trade will
naturally fall into the hands of Vancouver and Westminster merchants.
Thus each place hits plenty of opportunities for expansion. Whether
our city will advance more rapidly
in proportion than the others, will
depend chiefly upon the enterprise
and vim of its people.—Vancouver

Valuable Tcstimonj.
(lovefnor Jjirruliee, of Iowa, replying to many enquiries respecting
the enforcement and eilects of the
prohibitory law in that state, makes
the following importnnt'ntatemont:
Our prohibitory law is   being enforced in eighty-live of the ninety-
nine counties of the State, us well
as the laws against other crimes, all
malicious   reports  to the contrary
notwithstanding.    In the fourteen
remaining counties, situated principally ulong the Mississippi river, ond
containing large towns abounding in
foreign population, the law is but
partially enforced, and in a few instances is defiantly violated.    These
places are, however, gradually yield
ing to a public sentiment in favor of
general enforcement, which is rapidly growing, even in the eastern purt
of the state.    Prohibition has certainly not injured any business interest, except   that of   the saloonkeeper, nor has it driven any good
citizens from our borders.   It is true
we have lost, since Che adoption of
the prohibitory law, several thousand
incurable vendors of liquor, and perhaps a few hundred incurable topers, but we have every reason to
congratulate ourselves upon such a
loss.   '1'ho   Hon. (3.  W. Buddies;,
judge of the twelfth judicial district,
and one of tlie oldest and best of tbe
state, in   an   official   report dated
June 11, 1887, makes the following
statement: "The jails in this district
are now idle, and in eight terms of
court held by rae since Jan. 1 there
has   been  but one indictment presented, and I think the grand juries
have    been    reasonably  dilligent.
Much of the criminal element has
certainly emigrated."    The   Hon.
John V. Harvey, judge of the third
judicial   district of  this state, also
makes an interesting statement concerning the influence of prohibition
on crime.   He has been judge four
years and a half.   In 1883 he sentenced 31 persons to the penitentiary ; in 1884, 23 ; in 1885, 20; in
1886,  14, and during the first six
months of 1887, 3.    Judge Harvey
says: "I am frequently asked what
is the cause of this decrease in crime
during  the   last   four years.    My
answer is the enforcement of the
prohibitory law.   And it seems to
me that the above figures prove this
beyond a doubt.   The first year I
was en the bench the saloons were
running; the second and third years
they were  run  in some localities;
but the- fourth year I do not believe
there was  a saloon in the district.
I am satisfied that thero was hot an
| open  saloon.   Red Oak, in Montgomery  County,  and  Oreston, in
Union County, wero the last places
in tliu district to givo up  the saloons, and tlie record from these two
counties show the result.    The result from these counties is not bo-
cause thoy have a larger population
than tho other counties ot the district.  Page has a much larger population than either of these counties.
In the counties where the law has
been best enforced there has laren
the   least   crime.    During the last
year it lias not lieon un uncommon
thing—us ill this county (Decatur)
at tlie last term—for the grand jury
to adjourn without finding nn indictment.   At first, under tho present pharmacy law, somo of the druggists were disposed to take advantage and abuse the trust imposed in
tlieai, but h number of convictions
and   fines and the revocation of a
number of pharmacy permits by the
pharmacy board has had a whole
somo effect, and   I   believe that a
great majority of the druggists in
this  district  are now disposed to
oboytholaw."   It is true that both
shooting and murder have occurred
under the prohibitory law.   A minister at Sioux City und a constable
at Des Moines were killed in tho
attempt  to enforce  the law, but
these crimes were in both instances
committed by those who hud always
defied the law. It would be useless
to undertake the task of contradicting all the false reports put in circulation by unscrupulous men. Officers may in a few instances havo
shown a luck of discretion in the
perforin a uce of their ollieial duties,
lut this in the minds of candid men
will not ofl'ect. the merit of the law.
Tlio law is steadily gaining in public
favor, and prohibition is beyond
doubt tlio settled policy of Iowa.
Could the prohibitory law at present
be submitted to our people for their
ratification I am confident that it
would lie endorsed by a majority of
from sixty to eighty thousand votes.

A BTEAMSllll' 1,1X1; TO TACOMA.
San Fiuncjsco, July 2.— In railroad
circles here it is stated that the Northern
Pacific peoplo are in correspondence with
Gov. rerltiiw, of tho Pacific Coast Steamship Co., looking to the establishment of
a steamship service between this port and
Tacoma. Liov. Perkins U reticent in im*
parting information on tlio subject, fait
several large overland sliinncra of Culi-
foniKin staple goods stated that such Mas
the cose.
A DASH K«U Ul!i:KTV.
Kackamkxto, July 2.- A special from
Folsom contains proof of a bold but futile
and fatal attempt of the prisoners of the
State prison to escape this afternoon.
Without a sign of warning Convict Smith
made a dash for the river, and at the
same time another dash was made.
Smith was at once fired upon, and the
officer in charge was on the scent in an
instant. Instead of submitting they ran
and it was found necessary to firo upon
them. Tho guards deliberately poured a
volley of buckshot and rifle balls into the
fleeing men, the only perceptible effect
being to cause them to run more fiercely.
Seeing thut more desperate means would
have to bo used to prevent the prisoners
from forcing their wuy out the gating
guns were turned urned upon them and
in a few seconds the ill-advised victims
were cowed and begged for mercy They
were thou led away to their respective
cells. When the smoke cleared away
and order was restored it was found that
one convict, whose name could not be
learned had been killed. Another, named
Smith, had received three gatHnggun
balls and five buckshot in his body.
There is no hope of his recovery.
PKK3S  COMMENT  ON THE CHIMES' BILL.
London, July 4.—Tho Post, Lord
Randolph Churchill's urgnn, says: The
result of tho Spalding olection seems
to show that tho govornment had not
mot the demands of public opinion
with reference to tlio crimes' bill. The
government haa duwdlod over four
months when tho bill might hnve been
passed in as many wcolcs. The sooner
a strong government is formed, the
better. Great changes aro necessary
with a view to strengthening tho ministry's hold upon the country.
The StaiuI'm! rtiiys: If the Spalding
election proves an isolated case it might
bo dismissed without thought, but if
followed by others of the same sort the
outlook will be very serious.
0H0LE1U ArTKAIW.
London, duly 4.—Cholera has appeared in Pocello, in Calabria, where
there have already boon reported 17
cases and 0 deaths. The outlook there
is vory bad as tho weather is unusually
warm.
It is learned from the foreign office
that the commercial relations between
Spain, England and the l\S. will remain in statu quo until the ond of the
year.

Vancouver, July 4.—The Parthm,
Capt. Brough, arrived here all well at
1 o'olock this morning. She was do*
tninod yesterday iit Esquitmilt for two
hours whilst changing pilots. She ex*
perienccd light head winds aud misty
weather nearly all the voyage. Upon
entering the straits yerteruay morning
she encountered a gale In which the
pilot cutter lost its boat. She left Yokohama ou the 90th June at 1p.m.
The following is her list of' uossenrors:
Tho Marquis and Marchioness of
Huntley and 2 European servants, E.
J. Brook, Mr. & Mn. J. K. Cimiung-
liani, it children, and 1 native servants.
Dr. & Mrs. E. Campbell, Wm. M.
Cooper, A. H. Dawbarn, W. C. Dawn,
Capt. Wm. Deane, Geo. D. Mackay,
E. J. Beaumont Nesbit, B. Roth, C.
Watney, V. J. Watney and European
servant, H. 8. Wilkinson, Rev. & Mrs.
E. R. Woodman and children; and
native servant, C. Parnell, P. Walton,
10 Japaneso (3rd class), 91 Chinese
(3rd class), 9 Chinese (2nd class).' Her
cargo consisted of 42,108 packages,
measuring 297 tons, composed as follows: 31 pkgs. silk, 36,479 pkge. tea,
7,015 pkgs. rice and curios, and IS
sacks mail; also, 121 pkgs. of. tea
samples per express. It was rumored
in Hong Kong that the S. S. Batoviu
would not be ready to sail on the day
stated and that the S. S. Port Augusta
had had been chartered to take her
place for this trip. It is expected kht
will bring a larger cargo than the Ar*
thin. The merchants and m] inflow
China and Japan ore all in favor.olXh»
C. P. R. S.S. Co., and are ship*"
ping by it whenever possible. They
think the route superior to that by
San Francisco nnd indications are
that the new Hue will carry most of
the freight. The Parthia brings no
news of any importance since that received by the last mail. Before leaving the vessel the passengers presented
Captain Brough with an address expressing their satisfaction with the
vessel aud the manner in whioh the
company had provided for their accommodation.
Mr. R. A. Harrison, Chemist and
Dnigjist, Dunnville, Ont., writes: "I
can with confidence recommend North*
rop & Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptic Cure for Dyspepsia, Impure
Blood, Pimples on the Face, Biliousness
and Constipation—such cases having
come under my personal observation."

Worse Than Cow Bells.
Mn. Kiutok,—Cow bells are bad
enough, but from all noisy nuisances the
steamer "William, Irving" takes the
cake. A locomotive can haul ont bee
twenty or thirty cars and disturb no one,
hut when the ''William Irving" wants
to make a trip up the Fraser on Monday
mornings, nil Westminster has to be
awakened at ha'f-past three o'clock. In
many places no steamer is allowed to
whistle before six in the morning.

Editor Columbian,—I hope you will
not consider it unnecessary when I ask
an opportunity to express publicly my
opinion as one of the disfranchised property holders in the late election for
and against the loan by-law. Idon't pro-
fes* to know much about tke statutes of
B.C.,by which we aro governed, or rather
misgoverned, but when I went to the
place of voting on the loan by-law and
was told that by the advice of Messrs.
Corbould k McColl 1 had been, with
many others, struck off the voters* list, I
could not help thinking that either the
lawyer* were a  little beside themselves,
or that our law-makers had been sleeping where there were no cow bells to
wake them up in time to say no to sash
a stupid amendment to the already
stupid enough municipal act. And now,
if oiii* present council will be foolish
enough to force a loan under the present

According to the London Bcono
mist the colonies of Australia and
Canada carry an enormous sura of
money borrowed from British capitalists. Tho total amounts to over
$2,000,000,000, on whioh interest
to the amount of $173,000,000 is
annually paid. Of this sum $075,-
000,000 lias been borrowed by Canada, and $1,400,000,000 by Australia. And besides this, it must
not be forgotten that there are vast
minis of British money invested iu
Canada in the shape of stock companies and other enterprises yielding moro or less dividends. It's no
wonder John Bull gets rich upon
such revenues as these It is be
lioved tho total colonial indebtedness
to Great Britain will not fall much
short of five billions of dollars!
Some Things We Want.
Slowly, but steadily the manufacturing establishments of Westminster are increasing and developing. Within tho past two or three
years the capacity of our sawmills
and wood manufacturing concerns
(which are our chief industries)
have quite doubled. In a few weeks
we hope to hear tlie hum of the
busy spindles of the woollen mill
mingled with other welcome proofs
of enterprise and industry. The
wagon making establishments, whose
premises are now large and commodious, have as much business as
they can well handle. The foundry
and machine shop flourishes, und
the furniture makers have increased
and seem prosperous. Other smaller industries have come into existence, with the promise of more to
follow; but after all there remains
to be done a great deal in the way
of establishing and developing manufactories in this city. We have
more than once referred to the favorable circumstances existing here
for the establishment of manufactures. Our facilities for reaching
the markets everywhere and drawing supplies are unsurpassed anywhere in the province; we are surrounded on almost all sides by tine
agricultural and timber lands; and
the Fraser and other streams furnish fresh water in abundance. It
cannot be too strongly impressed
upon our minds always that theso
important advantages should be
valued, and that every reasonable
encouragement should be given to
those who feel disposed to take advantage of them. In particular we
want established at this city a first-
class flouring mill of sufficient capacity to manufacture for export. Such
an establishment properly carried
on by an individual or company
with about $50,000 capital would
not only be of great benefit to this
city and district, but would pay a
handsome interest on the investment. At present the quantity of
wheat grown in this district is limited, because there is very little
demand for it. While we have
land all about us abundantly capuble
of producing large wheat crops, as
proved by actual experience, we are
producing no flour worth speaking
of, but are bringing tons and tons
of it from Manitoba and from Oregon. So long as the facilities for
making flour are wanting in this
part of the country, so long will
this unsatisfactory condition of affairs continue. It Beems a pity,
too, that we should be every year
importing such large quantities of
agricultural machinery from the
east Not only are the farmers of
the province sending considerable
sums of money out of the province
in payment for this machinery, but
they are likewise paying a great
bonus in the shape of railway
freights. The farming industry in
this province is expanding with such
strides as to leave no doubt that
the demand for agricultural machinery will grow still larger. We believe a factory for the construction
of these implements ought to be
established in the country, and we
know of no place where it could be
located to more advantage than
hare. In connection with this there
should be a foundry and machine
shop of sufficient capacity for making
and repairing heavy mill and steamboat machinery, and the economical
manufacture of stoves. Then there
is a wide field for the manufacture
of woodenware, large quantities of
which are being brought from the
east. There ought to be established
here also extensive tanneries and
shoe factories. If some of our
capitalists were to invest a portion
of their wealth in reproductive
works of this kind, they would not
only nap a large percentage on the
outlay, but at the same time confer
a great and lasting benefit upon the
city and district. Wo have said
that tdr the class of manufactories
in whioh the farmers are specially
interested thwe is no place so favorably situated as Westminster. We
have the railway and the river right
at our doors. At present a majority of the farmers of this district
art located on the south side of the
river, and to reach this city they
have only to cross the stream, without, having to handle and reship
their' goods on this side, We are
are lacking in nothing requisite to
the building■ up of large manufacturing interests, and we hope to see
the force of these facto brought ont
by a practical test very shortly. It
is likewise important that wholesale
mercantile establishments should be
opened here, and a public market
for farm and dairy produce. Anything that will bring about these
desirable results is worthy of the
earnest attention of our citizens.

Tho other day a Chicago boy of eix years,

The culprit had a Blblo in his hands, and
protended to bo reading very intently. Tbo
friend of the family, having boon informed

He had a straightforward go-ahead air
about him as ho walked into the funny
man's sanctum, that immediately commanded attention,
"I thought I'd call on you," he sold.
" I know you'll be glad to see uie when
you know who I am."
" Who nro you?" inquired tho sad-eyed
f. m, as ho wearily laid down his pencil,
leaving tlio word mother-in-law half fin-

"I am a man who wouldn't havo my

" Whenever my wife wants a new bonnet, she goes and gets lt and has tho bill
Bent to me, and whenever I am out late
at night she goes to bed at the regular
hour, and nevor Bays a word about what
time I get In."
His auditor was turning palo, and
beads of perspiration stood out on his
face.
" I am the father of an Infant sixteen
months old," tho visitor went on, "and
I have never as yet stopped on a tack

GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF "GRIP" is to set forth, in

more dutlnltely and more pleasingly than
wbo'c columns of editorial. In tills pim-
gent, eitsllv !ippr"clalile,aiid artistic style
of presenting a subject, the wholo situation Is revealed at a glance. Tlie success
of Grip shows how well tills fact Is appro*
clated-lts Cartoons on the passing political events of the country being even
moreeagerlv sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of tbe paper,—
though tlie latter is equal to thut of any
similar publication on the continent.

tensive Improvements for 1SSH. The old
cover Is to lie discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise lt< pages, ami be

executed as to compare favorably with
ihe best papers on tho continent; Tliei
advts. will be compressed and more systematically arranged: while similar Improvements will be made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tin. Cartoons
will certainly not sillier from extensive
Improvements in tho artistic department.
Tho price of Grip will hereafter be?2a

Grip will be 10 cents.
Twice a yeai', at Midsummer and Christmas, u beautiful special number will be
issued, the number of pages being increased, and pleasing features introduced,

slackening of tho energy hitherto displayed iu the'management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Tlio Columbian will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tho advancement of spell schemes as
may ho considered in the public interest.
Tlio concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment iu this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. E.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
iu ids own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
tho now company asks for public patronage on tho ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that tho COLUMBIAN bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
enconslstt with its professions. In con*
sui|iienco of this business change all accounts due tho concern must bo settled
without delay so that tho books of tho
former company may bo adjusted and

that Mr. Van Home stated when at

Railway proposing to withdraw from

vice-president of the Northern Pacific,
writes to the Victoria agent as follows:
"You can assure tho shippers of Victoria in tho most positive terms that
the Northern Pacific railroad company
does not contemplate retiring from tho
business of British Columbia, and has
made no' overtures such as Mr. Van
Home claims in his interview." It
will now be in order fur Mr. Van
Home to speak.

during tho celebration. Mayor Fell, of
Victoria, mado tho following remarks:
"Remember wo peoplo of Victoria aro

but on the contrary recognize that her
progress means the increased prosperity of Victoria and the wholo of British Columbia. I know that the Colonist has attacked Vancouver, but lut
mo tell you that the Colonist dues not
represent Victoria, and no one there
pays any attention to what it Nays."
The Colonist in noticing this says:
"The hall was full, and so was he."
Such insinuations respecting tho mayor
of the capital nre not calculated to
promote public confidence or respect.

This was an appeal from a conviction made on 1st Juno last by the
police magistrate of tho appellant for
employing Chinese contrary to tho
provisions of a municipal by-law. For
the appeal Mr. McColl, with whom
was Mr. Leamy, contended that tlie
judgment of tho full court in tho caso
of Lou Chin vs. tho Chief Commissioner uf L. & \Y\, in which it was
hold that tho government could not
discriminate against Chinese miners by
the imposition of larger license fees
upon thorn than upon others, governed,
inasmuch as what was attempted by
the by-law in .question was nut merely
discrimination but total* exclusion.
Moreover, assuming tho local legislature to havo power to authorize tho
municipality to pass such a by-law, no
act had been passed giving such power.
Mr. Atkinson, for the city, after
taking some preliminary ubicctioiis,
which wero overruled, contended that
tho powers possessed by tho corporation wero sufficient to enable them to
pass tho by-law.
His lordship considered that tho
case referred to as having been decided
by the full court applied and mado an
order quashing tho conviction with
costs.
Bricks ami BrlcKmaklng.
BECKETT & COYS   BRICK YARD   AT PORT
HANEY.
At tho invitation of Messrs. Beckett
& Co. a representative of the Columbian paid a visit to the Fraser River
Brick Works ut Port Haney last Saturday. These works are situated in a
ravine immediately adjoining the C
P. R. track nnd the Fraser River.
The company has secured fivo acres of
land here which has been prepared nt
considerably expense for operations.
There has been erected a substantial
engine houso with an engine of nbout
30 horse powor for driving the machinery. There is a 3-inch iron shaft 150
feet long connecting with three of
Gurney's Martin's patent brick machines, having sufficient capacity to
turn out over 40,000 bricks per day of
10 hours. Tho clay, which is a vory
clean, fine blue clay, is taken from the
bank of the ravine, along side the machines, aud tho saud is brought by
railway from a short distance up the
river.   The supply of clay is
I'AAOIICALTjV  INEXHAUSTIBLE,
and sufficient to supply the whole province with bricks for the next century
at least. Water is pumped by machinery from the river and stored in a
large tank placed at an elevation sufficient to reach all the works by means
of pipes and hose. The clay and sand,
after being properly mixed, arc dumped into thu brick machines at one side,
and from the other side come tho
bricks, five at a time, pressed and
moulded into uniform and perfect
shape. These are placed on light barrows and conveyed to the drying Bheds
close by, where they are piled up in
long rows to dry. There are 40 double
drying sheds, each of which has a
capacity of 10,000 bricks. These
Bheds are lightly rooted to protect the
bricks from the sun and rain, both of
which aro injurious. After remaining
in the shed until sufficiently dry, they
are stacked up in the kiln and burned.
Last year this yard produced about
1,500,000 brickB, all of which were disposed of.   The works were
'CONSIDERABLY  ENLARGED
during the winter, and the whole of
the yard was raised 18 incites so ns lo
put it beyond the reach of high writer.
This season there have been 300,000
bricks burned, 300,000 more are ready
for the kiln, and there are besides between 300,000 and 400,000 drying.
The facilities for making and shipping
bricks are very complete. A short
switch from the C. P. II. main track
onablcs the cars to come right into tbo
yard, and there is also a tramway
running to the river, so thnt shipping
may be dono by water or by rail with
equal facility. The principle adopted
by tho company is to do nothing by
hand that can be done by machinery,
and this principle has been admirably
carried out in the works. There has
been invested in mnchiuery and im
provomonts not less than $20,000, and
it is now one nf tlie most
COMPLETE ItlllOKMAKINO ESTABLISH •
MBNTS
in Canada, lt is expected that the
machines will be kept running at thoir
full capacity during tho whole season.
There are now employed over 40 men,
and about 1500 cords of wood aro required by tho works for a season's operations. Tho supplying of this fuel
aud the other expenditures in connect-
tion with the Works are items of no
small Importance to Port Haney. This
brick yard was located by Messrs. II.
U. Beckett and his Hon Earnest iu
1885. These geutlumen came from
Sherbrooke, Quo-, and were induced
to umbnrk in this enterprise on the
advice of. Sir George Stophun, presi- j
dent of tho C.P.R., with whom Mr.
II. li. Beckett lias boon intimately ac-
quniiiiod for many yours. Ho is a
practical brick-maker with 45 years experience at the business, and is also
an ex|iorioi]ue;l builder. Ho built thu
large factory for tho Patoh Woollen
Mills Co., of Shorbrijiiko, ut which
Sir George was then president. Mr.
Earnest Beckett has also been
BROUUHT UF TO THK BUSINESS.
Last fall Mr. Wm, Wolfenden arrived from England and purchased tho
interest of Mr. Earnest Beckett iu tho
business, and the firm name was
changed from Beckett & Sun to Beckett & Co. The company does nut confine itself to brick-making, but undertakes building contracts as well, lt
has now on hand the contract for tho
brick and mason work of the large new
hotel under course of erection in this
city for Mr. W. A. Duncan, where
about 250,000 bricks will be used.
Mr. H. R. Beckett personally (altos
charge of Ihe building operations, Mr.
Woifondun is businesa manager of tho
the concern, nnd Mr. Earnest Beckett
is foreman of the yard,   Mr.  Wolfen
den has become a resident of this eity,
and has nn office on McKenzio street.
With the experience of these gentlemen and the facilities they havo for
brickmaktng and building, the firm
ought to do a large business. Bricks
made by these improved machines nre
very uniform in size and perfect in
shape, and the clay seems to be all
that could be desired; and we see no
reason to doubt that in quality they
will be found fully equal to anything
produced in the country. We hope
this valuable addition to our manufacturing industries will roalizo for its
promoters an abundant reward for
their enterprise.
There is a Wide Difmsrenoe between
