rComrspondeuco of the Columbian.j
Mount Lehman, Dec. 27.—Our
settlement has been very quiet of
late, and our Xmas was tempered
with sorrow on account of the death
of Mr. Wilkinson, which took' place
on Xmas morning. The young people of this place have succeeded in
organizing a mutual improvement
society called the Mount Lehman
Literary and Debating Society.
The first meeting has been arranged
for next Friday. This is the first
organization ofthe kind in the settlement, and it is to be hoped it will
be a great success. I am informed
that the people of Alder Grove have
a similar society. Tho examination
of our school, of whioh Mr. J. W.
Sutherland, is the respected und
efficient teacher, took place on the
16th. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, quite a number of visitors wero present, among
whom were Mr. Mrs. and Miss Mc-
Oallam, Mrs. M. Ferguson, Mr. and
Mrs. G. A. Sully, Miss Nicholson,
Miss McCoghlan, Mr. M. Nicholson,
Mr. J. A Morrison, Mr. F. La
Claire, Messrs. J. ,fc H. Lehman,
Mr. L. Payne, Mr. C. M. Nicholson,
E. J. Thomson, secretary of the
board, and also Mr. M. Beattie,
Wharnock's popular nnd efficient
teacher, who took an active part in
the examination. Mr. Sutherland
called on a number of the visitors
and trustees to speak. Each congratulated the children on the manner in which they hnd marked their
proficiency since midsummer. Miss
Coghlan, teacher of Denman Island Sohool, is spending her vacation visiting her home in Mt Lehman. Messrs. D. M. Morrison, 11.
Ross, and R. Coghlan, Jr., have nr-
rivrrd home from the upper county
whore thoy havo been engaged superintending the construction of the
Sicaftious und Spallumcheen Road
for the government. I am glad to
learn that Mrs, Geo. McKay, who
was taken to Westminster few weeks
ago for medicar aid, is fast recovering under tho care of Dr. Cooper, of
your city. Mr. R. Coghlun hns
completed the erection of tho large
bridgo on tho Ynlo wagon road.
Mr. Coghlan can congratulate
himself on having completed its
erection beforo the present stormy
weather set iu. Gossip says that
one of our young bachelors is shortly going to lead oue of Mt. Lehman's
fairest daughtors to tho altar. Mr.
Johnny Ibbotson, Mt, Lehman's
deor hunter, is a terror to the deer,
and is still hauling them in, a large
panther was seen here a few days

treaty upon the basis suggested. It
is the opinion of our officials that
tho advantages to Canada from a
parcel post treaty would be quite as
great as thoso which tho U. S. would
derive, whereas the proposition to
which it seems probablo tho Canadian government would alone accede
is very much on tlie jug-handle
order.
BY TELEGRAPH.
Kn Parcel !*«.<.
Wasiiimtox, Deo. 27.-—A dispatch comos from Canada stating
that at the recent conference between Supt. Bell, of tho foreign
mail service of the U. S. postoffice
department, and Mr. McLellan, the
representative of tho Canadian post-
office department, an arrangement
was reached by whioh a parcel postal treaty between tho V. S. and
Oanada will probably bo concluded.
The Canadian newspaper which is
responsible for this dispatch is
greatly in error. Tho fact is that
the demands of tho Canadian post-
office officials were of such a character that the representative of our
postoffice department would not for
a moment recommend to the postmaster general that a parcel post
treaty upon nny such basis should
bo concluded. Canada asks altogether too much, and has vory much
too high an estimate of the advantages whioh it would confer upon
the U. S. by the negotiation of  tho

cave an' official reception yesterday,
There wero about 200 ladies and gentlemen called. Tho day was observed
as a general holiday.
THE KI.'ROPEAN   SITOAJflON.
London, Jan. 3.— Tho t«nor of thia
morning's official and press despatches
from the continent is decidedly more
peaceful than the situation, presented
last, gave promise of. Austria, moved
by the hopelessness of. conducting
military operations on the Russian
frontier until next spring, nr actuated
by the asseverations of Bussia that
the presence of tho czar's troops on
the Gatician border in unusual force
has uo warliko significance or intent,
now seem, inclined to vacate her lofty
pedestal of truculent indignation, and
defer hor offensive preparations at
least until she call discover some
tar.giblo provocation for their prosecution. Tho gniwiuit conviction, too,
that Prince Ferdinand nnd his ambitious mother were the instigators, if
not the prime movers, of the forged
correspondence which eamo very near
to precipitating a desperate and groundless war, lias irarl a great effect m shaping the course which Austria will pursue
during the next few months, and it is
not unlikely that young Ferdinand will
be compelled to nlrdicatc, not by Husslan
bayonets, but bv the mandate of the
Austrian emperor.

Halifax, Jan 3.— The Allan Lino has

has already begun negotiations in tho
same matter.

North Arm llouds.
Important Meeting ta.t Kalunlny
Last Saturday afternoon a goodly
num' or of tho resident ratepayers ol
Richmond municipality met at the
hall for tho purposo nf discussing the
question of a direct rond from tho
North Arm to Vancouver, bridges to
connect Lulu and Sea Islands with the
mainland ifto. &c Owing to tho absence of Mr. W. H. London (the postmaster at Lulu Island) from home, tho
announcement of the meeting to those
en the south side of Lulu Island was
mrt given out in time to enable them
to attend, only throe boing prosent.
The ol ber warda wero well represented.
After > fow remarks from Mr. H.
Youdall, tho chairman, stating the
object of the moating, Mr. L.A.
Hamilton and Mr. S. Brighouse, from
Vancouver, were called to tho plat-
form. The press was also represented
in tho person of Capt. C. A. Worsnop
of tbo iv^av-^atwmwr, Mr. Hamilton was first called npon to address the
meeting. He began by stating that
ovor sinco his visit to tlio settlement
nbout two yoar, ago ho had been
giving his consideration to the advisability and necessity of a direct road
from Vancouvor. Ho was literally
astonished at the capabilities for production in this locality, and said wo should
have a thoroughfare by which wo
would bo ablo to roach tho market
opened up for our produco in Vancouver.    Very many in Vanoouver
have uo idea that such a magnificent
and fertilo tract of country wu lying
in suoh closo proximity. The 0. P.
R. authorities have already caused a
survey for the site for a traffio bridge
to be made across False Creek at the
termination of Granville street, with a
viow to having the tame continued
under the name of "Centre itreet"
throughout Ihe entire breadth of the
lands of the C. P. R. toward. North
Arm. Tho line of the proposed road
would, if continued in a direct line,
intersect the now existing road a ahort
distance west of the Methodist church
at the river. The 0. P. R. will build
3j miles of the road through their property at an expeme of probably $10,-
000. Tho city council of Vancouver
ulive to the interests of that rapidly
growing city, have signified their will-
ness to erect the bridge aoron False
Creek, aud it now lies with tb* provincial government and tk* I '
of Richmond to make the connecting
link. This being done, we can then
drive to Vancouver, and that oity will
without doubt do whit no city in B.
C. has yet done, provide accommodation in tho way of a public market.
The speaker spoke hopefully of the
projectand recommended thepeoplehere
to throw aside every penooal or Motional feeling in the matter and aU
join together in making united effort!
to secure this most des'rable^'olSkct,
Mr. Brighouse recommended tha Borrowing of mosey, say (30,000 for a
term of years. Ho said he had no
doubt it could be obtained for 0 per
cent, at tbe most,-probably, for, lea.
They should apply 810,000 towudeihe
bridges and $20,000 for roadi.. The
views of those present were then uked.
Mr. Sexsmith was in favor of borrowing the money, and going on with the
work. Wo hod tried "Loan By-Law"
before, but did not succeed; had Ud
doubt that the opiniom of | manj hid
changed since then; had been told by
some who came from a distance to
opposo the by-law that they would lup-
port the scheme now.' Mn' London
said be had uo doubt the people from
the South Arm would support the 'bylaw to the amount of $10,000 for
bridgo purposes if the government
would build and.maintain the bridge*.
Mr. Kilgour was. pleased' to"hear
Mr. Hamilton's statement of the'* cue.
As to the location of the bridpes, he
belived the site already surveyed by
tho govornment a very suitable one.
Mr. Errington uid be thought we
would stand in our own light ■ if we
did not give our hearty support to the
scheme; tbat it would be very much t.
our interests to do so. Some further
discussion with respect to the location
of roads leading to the bridges took
place. Mr. Vermilyea wanted a road
acroso Mr. Britrhouie's property, thtli
giving those en the weitern portion of
the Island an outlet. Mr. Brighouse
objected but offered the land along the
river free for a road. The chairman
ruled tho discussion out of older. The
following resolution wu then put to
the meet and declared carried without
a dissenting voice: "Moved lay O. P.
Sweet, seconded by W. H. London:
Thut this meeting pledges ita support
to a by-law to raise $30,000 foraperiod
of 50 years, $10,000 of whieh shall he
placed at the tho disposal of the government, provided the government will
build and maintain the bridges connecting with tlie mainland. Oapt.
Stewart aaid he favored the scheme
and hoped to see the time, not far distant, when wo would not only hare
these roads and bridges, but when we
would see the "iron horse" orouing
there flats. A heirty vote of thanks
was tendered Mr. Hamilton, who, in
responding, stated that the had nodoubt
the day is not far distant when, if
theso projected improvement, are
brought to a successful issue and our
farms are brought into cultivation
ns they should be, we may see railway
facilities opened up to us, io thlt we
may be safo in counting thit prosperity and wealth will certainly be
our portion.

V gfcilg f ritish Columbian
Tuesday Evenlna, Jan.
1888.
Ou Saturday wc referred to somo
of the occurences of the yenr that
has just closed; perhaps it may not
be unprofitable to glance at some of
the circumstances under which wo
enter upon the year 1888 and discuss tho probabilities which lie before us. Without wasting much
time over foreign affairs, it may be
remarked thut there are many well-
informed persons who confidently
look for a European war next
spring. The restless anxiety of
France to avenge herself on Ger-
inany is a standing menaco to the
pence of Europe; and the development of a spirit of distrust and
jealousy between Russia and Germany has reached such intensity as
to convince many statesmen of tho
serious danger of au outbreak iu
that direction. War between any
of those great powers would almost
certainly involvo war on a vory extensive scale. Great Britain cannot hopo to escupe the baptism of
fire, and Canada, as a portion of the
great empire, will possibly be made
to participate. Tho effect nnd result of such a conflict no one can
predict, for no one knows definitely
how many nations would ba drawn
into it Thero are many, on the
other hand, who take no stock iu
these war rumors, and who believe
that a conflict undertaken with tho
weapons now iu readiness would
bring disaster to every one who
cniuo into the fight. While
nations stand with pistols in their
hands, scowling at each other, there
are not wanting indications of a
growing desire for permanent peace
in many quarters. The influential
delegation of the British Pence
Society which enure to America a
short timo ago, and the favor with
which its objects have been received
everywhere, show that the world is
coming to perceive the folly as well
as the horrors of war. It is almost
cortain that the influence of this
movement will rapidly extend, and
it is by no means impossible that
this year may witness suoh progress
in the direction of peace as will
avert the catastrophe which is now
disturbing tlie minds of nil Europe.
The year may also see n solution of
the Irish question which has continued to be sucii a source of weakness and scandal to the British empire. Either the Irish will be
pacified by conciliatory legislation,
or they will drift into hopeless anarchy. If they are to bo retained
as a part of the empire, measures
for their pacification cannot long be
delayed. In the United States the
one public question of the year will
be the presidential election. We in
Oanada may have no public question
that will cast all others into the
shadow, but there will be many
questions of great importance coming to the front. That the federal
machinery does not work without
friction everybody knows already.
The centralization of power at Ottawa, and the maintenance of con
federation by increased subsidies to
those provinces which threaten secession, cannot go on forever. Our
public debt is now enormously
heavy, and so long as additional
subsidies aro required for conciliating discontented members of the
confederacy, there is not much hope
of reduction, Thero will have to be
a readjustment of tho confederation
act, and with it will probably come
a revision of the tariff. The question of commercial union, which has
been very freely discussed during
the past few months, promises to attract a good deal of attention in
1888. In British Columbia thero
are matters requiring serious at
tention. Whilo the progress of this
province has been very satisfactory
during the past year, and the present year promises to be one of great
prosperity, it must be evident that
the provincial revenuo is far too
email to meet tho increasing de
mands made upon it. The cost of
the educational system has doubled
within a few years, and is now over
9100,000 per annum. It is certain
tp go on increasing rapidly. Tlio
growth of the country, nnd especially the formation of new towns nnd
communities along the line of railway, bas added largely also to the
coat of administering justice; and
this expense will also keep growing
larger. Indeed, there is no department of oivil government where ono
may look for anything but growing
expenditure. The revenue does not
seem to be growing with proportionate rapidity, and it will be the
business of our public men to pro-
Tide for a larger revenue without
sensibly increasing the burdens of
the people, At this period of our
provincial history it is most important that there should be amplo
fundi for public improvements. It
ii not sound policy to stunt the
growth of a state because its present revenue does not como up to the
needs of the service. It is sometime) wise economy to go into debt.
We are not among those who denounce the incurring of a public
debt as reckless extravagance. It
all depends upon the circumstances.
It depend! on the statesmanship dis-
{itayed in the expenditure. If a
oan has to be negotiated to meet
ordinary expenditure, there is danger of bankruptcy; but if the proceed! of the loan are to be invested
In permanent works, it may be wise
statesmanship to borrow. But tho
time will come, nevertheless, when
means will have to be taken to add
considerably to the provincial income. This, wo think, will be one
of tbe most important matters for
consideration during tlio present
year'.

Noah Stcphona wns tt miwt. Tho
tl'lnt ol nvarico, born in him, was
-tr.iirrilisiiorl by cultivation. From his
**'••■ ■■'mt boyhood he had struggled to earn
ii.Jir-.v, not to use, but to hoard.   His
fflruiiirt from picking berries and irom
il- ;o s were carefully put in a tin box,
■nn! tlio wending money, which most
buys uoiild have used lavishly, remained
iniloilMied by bim. When any of tiro
Mivw pieces became tarnished, he would
•ut a nl scour them, and exult over his
illtie property. It was his cherished
.Iraim to become a rich man, and the
best enorgios ol his life fere devoted to
ihe Bcciimillation ol wealth. At fifty
yean nf aim he waa the possessor ol half
• million dollars, gained entirely through
economy and in .ustry, combined with
line business ability, Ho gave sparingly
10 tlie church of which he was a member ; he pairl hia bills promptly and was
honest in his transactions j but he knew
not the meaning of tho word philanthropy, for his soul was too naribw to
pitii.ii nny love for bis fellow-inon. He

New V.r.r's C'ii.kmiik.
A prominent feature of New Year's
Day is the presentation of gilts, and if
immemorial usage can sanction custom,
this opght to he looked upon now almost
as a part of our mental constitution. The
custom ol celebrating the new year's day
by some religious observance, generally
accompanied with festive rejoicing, it
very 'ancient Tho .lows, Egyptians,
Chinese, l'oinana and Mohammedans,
dilorlng as they did in the time from
which they reckoned the beginning of
the yenr, all agreed in regarding it as a
day of special Interest. In Koine the
year anciently commenced in March;
but when Numa, according to ancient
tradition, changed It tothe 1st of January,
that day wu held sacred to Janus Uifrons,
who was thus supposed to turn back
upon tho old year and forward into the
new, Ou thu establishment ol Christianity the usage of a solemn inauguration
of tlie new yew Wu retained, but great
variety prevailed, both as to the time and
the manner ol celebrating the event.
Christmu Day,tne A nunnciation, Faster,
and March let have ell shared at various
tiiins with the-let of January, the honor
of opening tbe New Yenr, an I it wns not
until bear (he end ol the Uth century
that the 1st ol January wu accepted ns
tho dale of the opening of the yoar l>v all
the leading nations, with the exception
of Uusaia. The early fathers of the
Christian Church spoke nnd wrote against
tho immoral and heathenish observances
whicli djMmcteriatl tho celoirraliou of
the nowyear. From tbe earliest existing
records we And that tho day was kept
wii li feasting and rejoicing, and tho habit
of making preeenta wu then more universally dbaerved tban at present. In
many couktriw tht night of New Year's
Kvo wu celebrated with great rejoicing,
which wasrprolonged until after twelvo
o'clock, when the dawn of the new vear
was ushered in wltb congratulations,
coinplimenwrjr viaila, and mutual wishes
for a happy new yea*, This is an ancient
'cottish custom, which still exists, though
not to the same oxtent as formerly, and
in Germany it Is still celebrated with
greater eclat than in England, and tho
or Unary mode of salutation is pwM urn
ialir, "may the new year be happy."
The dny ia rtfogulred by special rcligi.nn
services by the majority of Christian
communions; and in the (Ionian Catholic
churches the Te Drum is still sung at tbo
closo of tha old year, and New Year's
I 'ay is considered • holiday of strict
obligation. 1

Causes the Stomach nud Bowels to !'o-
come disordered, end tho whole system
to suffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayer's Fills givo prompt relief.
After much suffering from Livor and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
I always find tliem prompt and thorough
in their action, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.— Ralph weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I havo never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
aosiBt digestion, and increase tho appetite, more surely than any other medicine.— Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass,
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer'a
Pills for Stomach and Livor disorders,
I suffered from a Torpid Livor, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
wu yellow, aud my tonguo coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Fills, taken iu moderato
doses, restored mo to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills ore a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondoncy resulting from
Liver Complaint, I have used these
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never fall to give entire satisfaction.—

The test was considered quite satisfactory. The water rates have beon

ing improvements is very inaccurate
and incomplete, however, and thero
aro n great many errors throughout
the work. It is not a bad number to
send away, however, and in some respects is quito creditable to tho enterprising publishers.

The steamer Adelaide left for Sumas yesterday, but only succeeded in
making Langley whero she met with
with considerable floating ico and was
compelled to abandon the trip and return tn the city. Although thu

not very groat, tbo owners of both the
Gladys und Adelaide havo docided to
lay these steamers up for tho present,
or until the chances of a freeze up aro
at an ond. Tho Gladys has beon
beached alongside of Who's wharf and
the Adelaide is berthed at iho eastern

Winter Hulniou.
Winter salmon aro reported to be
very numerous at present in Howe
Si und, and off the mouth of Burrard
Inlet. Tho Indians havo boen catching large numbers with trolling spoons
which bait,it is said, they take the moment it touches the water. W. H. Vianen had a boat out yesterday, off
Point Grey, whicli brought iu 23 vory
(ino salmon, averaging from 10 to 20
pounds ouch. The present run of salmon is not considered unusual at this
season, as thoy nre a fish that seldom
enters fresh water and in other years
have always been plentiful though very
seldom fished for.

Tho new Sunday closing by-law oamo
into force on the expiration of 1887,
and was observed by all tho saloons

the Liscenoed Victuallers' Association
held a meeting ou Saturday und docided that one of their number should
remain opon on Sunday for the purpose
of bringing about a suit to test tho
legality of tho now by-law. Mr.
Ourran remained open, and for ao
doing has been summoned to appear
beforo the police magistrate to-morrow

Threatening to glioot.
On Saturday morning a man named
Patrick Kane, who had boon spending
a jovial night among tho buys, on returning to his rcBideiica in the swamp,
found that somo miscreant hud been
breaking the windows uf the shuck.
Next door to tho Kane mansion lives
a man by tho name of John Kobs, and
it struck Knuo that his neighbor might
havo been implicated in tho work of
destruction that had boon carried on
during his absence. Accordingly ho
proceeded to awaken Mr. Ross nnd enquired if lie woro the culprit. Ross
denied having broken the windows,
but the denial did not satisfy Kane
who Insisted that he had, aud must
fight in con him] ue nue. The argument
was sustained with much activity for
somo littlo time uftor,which Kane left,
but not before ho had threatened to
bore ho!c3 and let daylight into tbo
carcase of hla neighbor. Ross became
ulimncd at the ferocious threat and on
Saturday wont to tho polico and luid
an information against Kane, who was
generally supposed to be a walking
arsenal. On Saturday night Kane
wn3 arrested, but no deadly weapons
wero found on his person. This morning Ihe polico magistrate sentenced him
to pay u fine of S3 and costs for disorderly conduct, and bound him over
iu tho sum of $500 to keep tho peace
for 0 months.
yen Year's Reception.
According to announcement, the
Indies of tho W.C.T.U. held a reception in tho Drill Shed yesterday. The
day was very fine, and thero Were
many callers, tho number being moro
than iv third greater than that of 1887.
Coffee, sundwichos and cake wore served to all who called, and in many
cases the entertainment was very highly appreciated by strangers who spout
tlio day iu tlio city. The number of
names recorded in the visitors' book
was 04; last year it was 00. In tho
evening tho ball was completely filled
by an appreciative audience, and a
vory excellent programme was presented. The first part was given by young
members of tho Loyal Temperanco
Legion. Among other good things
in this part was a regular meeting of
tho city council, tho members of
which had not shed tho garments of
childhood. Au application was inndo
to this august body for a liquor license,
and tho propriety of granting it wus
discussed most learnedly by tho amateur councillors. The little folks also
sang a numbor of choruses, and Laura
Kill- tt gavo a recitation. The second
part of tho programme was as follows:
Chorus by the choir, reading by Mrs.
D. Robson, duet by the Misses French,
reading by Miss Williams, song by
Mrs. Lund, recitation by Miss Lilian
Card, song by Mrs. D. Robson, reading by Mrs. O, J. Robson, song by
Mrs. Lyal. The entertainment wob
in most respects vory excellent Mrs.
Jas. Cunningham, president of the
W.C.T.U., presided.
At Vancouver a similar reception
and entertainment wore held in the
Methodist Hall by the ladies of tho
W.C.T.U. of that city. Thero wero a
largo number of callers, and tho affair
won pronounced by all a groat success..
During the evening Rov. E. Robson
was surprised by having presented to
him a very hatidsomo gold watch.

CorrcspomloiK'o of the Columbian.
North Arm, Jan. 2.—The enter
tainmeiit hold in the Town Hall on
Monday evening tli*) £(itli December,
iu connection with tho Sabbath School,
was pronounced n decided success.
Owing to tho thron timing atate of the
weather in tho early part of the evening some wero deterred from attending; si ill a largo number woro present
and all onjyyod themselves remarkably
well, as is usually the case here. The
hall wns tastefully decorated with
evergreens. On the left, ns we entered tho hull we were greeted wilh
"Merry Xmas," and on the right with
"Happy New Year," most dexterously formed by skillful hand.1*, from the
slender boughs nf tbe cedar tree. In
front, above tlie blauk board, tbo word
"Welcome" was artistically formed
from moss Mid was considered to bo
excellent, while mi tho black board
was writion iu quaint old German text
tho words "Peace on Earth, Good Will
to Man," the work of Mr. Thos.
Havelock, nephew of the Into Lord
Havclock, the hem of Luc-know. The
programme was carried out in uxtenteo
without a hitch: "Hark tbo Christmas BoIIb" by tho choir, was followed
by reading.**, recitations aud music by
tho children, when refreshments consisting of cake, candies, applea, oto.
were served up. After doing ample
justice to tho good things provlijedi
the meeting was culled to order and
tho prfcjjramtiie proceeded with until
about 10 p. m. On account of tho
length of tho programme it would jiot
bo i nth resting to your renders to givo
it in full. The children performed
tho parts assigned to them with credit
to themselves aud satisfaction to tlm
parents and visitors present. At the
closo of tho "feast of reason and flow
of soul," Santa Claua was introduced,
tho true was unloaded of the in nny
presents for the children nnd others,
and after the singing of "God Save
the Queen," all returned homeward
feeling tho truthfulness of the old, old
story, "Bohold how good and how
pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity."
