current Events and Opinions.
Wlmt u strange situation it is,
anyhow. Wo see tlie cross of St.
. George and tlie warm colored banner of Italy planted side by side in
the sands of equatorial Africa;
Protestant England and Catholic
Italy closely allied in a, Struggle
with the self-appointed leader of a
new Islam. We see Italy, the long-
suffering, the long-oppressed, relied
upon by England as a valuable ally,
and ready to shed her best blood in
avenging a disaster to British arms.
Where does history afford a more
striking picture than that of the
British lion and the lion of St.
Marks together facing an Arab foo
in the depths of the Dark Continent 1—Seattle Post.
The full of Khartoum is almost
as great a shock to the Paris Bourse
as to London. Although the British
disaster had no direct effect upon
France, nevertheless it puts French
bankers out of joint by upsetting
their elaborate arrangements for the
financial settlement of the Egyptian
question, and by threatening to create a serious Italian financial question, Bankers now feel that Mahdi's victory involves the possible fall
of Gladstone, tho indefinite postponement of the settlement of Egyptian finances, and all sorts of obstacles and uncertainties; and they
also feel that Italy, in spito of all
her efibrts to the contrary, will be
drawn into the African war, owing
to the expedition already sent to
Massownh; so the rise of Italian
securities and the intended conver
sion of her debt i.s for the moment
out of the question. Bankers an
now paralyzed and afraid to do any
thing. Moreover, tho affairs of
France aro by no means encouraging. Tlie defects in the budget are
not covered, and the ministry dare
not attempt radical manures. The
industrial crisis becomes more and
more intense and factories Aro
obliged to close, tliere being no demand for goods. Strikes are everywhere prevalent ou account of a
general reduction of wages, and
there are constant fears of riots in
Paris and Lyons. Decidedly, the
French republic is entering on a
critical phase, and finance is its
most vulnerable point. Everybody
feels uneasy, fearing that something
worse is coming. This is not the
moment to buy . French paper
Everything depends upon the foreign
policy of Kngland and tho attitude
of the London market.-—Ex,
Columbian.
VOLUME 27
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1885.
NUMBER 15
Two cars of machinery for the
Winnipeg and Northwest Petroleum
Company arrived yesterday from
Bradford, Fenu., and aro now at
the O.P.R. freight sheds. Two cars
more aro expected in* a few days
when the whole plant, including
supplies to be purchased here, will
bo shipped west to Gleicheu and
transported thence to the grounds
of the company, about 40 miles
from that point. This is tho first
practical step taken towards the
development of the petroleum region
along the' Red Deer river and its
branches, tho waters of which have
for years boen known to float large
quantities of oil. In the immediate
vicinity of the tract .of 640 acres
which the company owns there are
Said to be springs of the crude oil
appearing on the surface, and there
is every indication of rich petroleum
deposits at no great depth, Tho
plant consists of a boiler and 15
horse-power engine, augurs, derricks, drills, piping, sand pump and
other tools necessary to a complete
drilling outfit capable of boring to a
depth of 2,800 feet. A blacksmith's
shop, house, tents, etc,, will also be
sent out, and a gang of practical oil
men from Pennsylvania will bo
brought out to execute the work.
Though facilities have been provided for boring to a depth of 2,800
feet, thu company have beenlidvised
by experts, who have examined the
region, that oil will be struck at a
depth of 300' feet. It is their intention to push the work with'all
possible speed, and the result of tlio
enterprise will bo known about the
end of March. If favorable, ar*
rangements will then be made for
shipping and refining the product of
the wells. The progress of the
work will be watched with interest.
The. company is composed of Minneapolis capitalists.—Winnipeg Free
Press.
Some of our contemporaries eagerly rushed in and condemned the
claims of the so-called "poor settlors" without waiting to ascertain
the' merits of those claims. Others
. of our contemporaries, notably the
youngest of them all, were equally
rash and more unfortunate in taking the side of the "poor settlers/'
and roundly abusing the chief commissioner for not having treated
thein with greater consideration.
The, Post endeavored to pursue a
middle course. Not tied to the
wheel of political party, we prefer
red to wait until sufficient ovideuce
had been evolved to enable us to
arrive at a conclusion fully justified
by the facts and circumstances of
the case. Enough is already known
to warrant us in coming to the conclusion that the chief commissioner
was perfectly justified in. refusing to
recognize these .^ilPs.:—.that, in
fact, for him to have done otherwise
would have been a wrong to the
state. When one coaies calmly to
look into the whole case, one is
forced to regard it in the light of a
huge and bold conspiracy to obtain
illegal possession of crown lands
which well-informed persons estimate, even at present prices, to be
worth half a million, but what the
conspirators themselves calculated
would bring them a cool million
whenever the question of railway
extension was definitely settled.
The "poor Bottlers" indeed! Why, a
careful examination fails to discover
n bona fide settler in the motley
crowd of lawyers, bankers, merchants, saloon-keepers, steamboat
men, cannery men, broken-down
politicians, and tnonicd men, who
hoped by the sheer force of numbers
and money and supposed political
influence to overawe the government**"
into granting their outrageous demands ; aiul, failing in that, made a
bold attempt to mislead or corrupt
the legislature. But, thanks to the
firmness of tho government, in the
first instance, and the watchfulness
and firmness of certain members of
the committee, in the second, the
conspirators have been defeated, the
property of the state has beon saved
and thero is every reason to expect
that such a complete exposure is
about to follow as will exert a
healthy influence upon the political
morality of the country, It is believed that additional important
evidence will bo taken before the
committeo to-night, and we shall,
therefore, postpone any further remarks to a future occasion.— Victoria Post,
Limsley council. ,,.
Council met at tlio council chambers

Ottawa, Fob. 4:—Sir John Mac-
donAld'a reply to Mr. Blako'a question
to-day, respecting the reported furthor
demands of the Canadian I'm:ilie railway company for pecuniary aid, indicates very clearly that such demands
have been mado and are being considered. If Sir John could have given
nu emphatic denial to tho damaging
rumors that are afloat ho would only
hnve been too ready to do so, If iti
was not certain that formal proposals
will be submitted to parliament in a
few days he would not have hesitated
to deny that tho government hnd been
approached on the subject nt all, It
has boen ascertained to-day thnt tho
amount now wanted by the Canadian
Pacitio company to pay nil .thoir floating debt and meet immediate necessities, ia ten million dullavs. If the
ministerial supporters nre not willing
thut tho govornment shall buy back
their lands at two dollars nn acre, some
other method will be tried. It is assorted that the four million dollars of
Inst session's loan still in the hands of
the government, nnd tho amount of
unearned cash subsidies, will not be
anfticieiit to pay off tho floating debt of
the compnny. If twenty million acres
of land nre taken back at two dollars
si) ncre it will be aufllcient to release
Iho government's lien on tho rnilwny
nnd leave ton million dollars over. At
nil events the compnny insist thnt it
is thu duty of tho govornmont toflud

Snlimluv Horlilng,   Vrh. 'il, IKH5,
After u good deal of unnecessury
delay and discussion the United
States senate lias conn* to the sensible conclusion tlmt the course suggested by Tiik Columbian some
time ago is tin; proper course to
adopt respecting the Nicaragua
treaty. The motion to ratify the
treaty lias been rejected, und negotiations are' to be opened with Great
Britain with the object of obtaining
a surrender or modification of the
Clftyton-Bulwer treaty. Jt is quite
possible Britain may be found willing to meet the views of the United
States in this matter without hesitation.
'Jj'he. Hcewse commissioners of this
city received a despatch from Ottawa last Wednesday instructing them
to enforce the Dominion liquor law.
After the late decision of the supreme court of Canada, declaring
Wus law unconstitutional, the despatch was a genuine surprise. The
commissioners, or at least some of
them, seem strongly inclined to disobey these latest instructions, and
will resign if there is no other way
out of the difficulty. The commissioners have no power to punish
persons who sell under a provincial
license, and those who have taken a
Dominion license only will he amenable to the provincial laws. Wo
are at a loss to iind any ground
upon which this latest freak of tlie
federal government could bo justi
Jied.
Tlie Immigration Agent.
Mr. Ross, the provincial immigration agent at tins eity, finds fault
with The Columbian's remarks respecting his connection with the
squatters' claims. Mr. Ross has
certainly no ground for complaint.
Indeed what has. been said is nothing at all to what might be said
witli perfect truth* iiml fairness, So
far as we are aware the conduct of
the immigration agent generally lias
been such as to meet with approval
and commendation from the government, and in liis endeavors to settle
up the country he has always received cordial support from Jim
Columbian because his exertions
seemed to be in the intercst-of tbe
country. It was not until the committee's report became known that
we were aware to what extent the
injudicious acts of the immigration
agent had contributed to the disturbed and strained condition of
matters nt Victoria. Tt is now
about five weeks since the legislature
assembled, and very little business
of importance has yet been transacted. The work of the session was
stopped at its very commencement
by the demand made by the house
for an enquiry into'the squatters1
claims, and at the present writing
we do not know that the committee
is much nearer a satisfactory solution of the difficulty than it was n
. month ago. One can scarcely estimate tho loss which this delay has
inflicted upon the country. Besides
the actual expenses of the committeo and the house, it will never be
known how much money lias been
lost to us from the uncertainty
wliich everywhere meets those who
were lately anxious to invest. Some
time ago we stated that the Indian
agent and the immigration agent at
this city seemed mainly responsible
for this muddle. Our authority for
that statement was the committee's
report, which itself was based upon
tbe evidence taken before it. Mr.
McTiernan has since entered a must
emphatic denial of the statements
and -documents put in by certain
persons as evidence of his connection
with the Indian titles. We think
the denial of Mr. McTiernan aud
the documents he is able to produce,
are sufficient to clear him from all
blame, and we have, already absolved him. There seems to us no doubt
now that the claims of those who
rested their title upon the purchase
of Indian improvements will be
wholly rejected by tho committee.
If this be the case, Mr. Ross alone
becomes responsible for the unfortunate condition of affairs which has
almost precipitated a crisis. In its
report the committee stated that
certain personB had "quite properly
applied to the immigration agent
(Mr. Ross) for information, and
have been by liim unintentionally
misled as to their right to locate
upon the lands in question." As a
consequence of this misleading by
an agent of the government, the
committee recommends that the!
claims be favorably considered, j
This clearly lays the blame upon j
Mr, Rosw, and an examination of
the evidence shows that tho committee had reason for placing the responsibility upon his shoulders, For
example, Air. Stewart iestitietl: "1
went to Ross for information; bo
told me as far as he know, it was,
although leased lnnd, as much open
to settlement as any other laud in
Britisli Columbia; he advised me to
go on the land.'' Mr. Matheson
said, "Ross told me this land was
open the same as any other in British Columbia.- * * * I -relied
upon what Ross said. '* '* * Wo
got most of our information from
Ross." Mr, Muckio said, "I made
application to Mr. Ross, the immigration agent, and asked him if the
hind was open for settlement. Ho
said it was."' Mr. Mackio, Jun.,
said, "I applied to Mr. Ross, government agent. lie told me it was
open for settlement. * * * I
applied to Ross for a pre-emption
record. I have got it." Mr. Sprott
says, speaking of Mr. Ross, "He
did not discourage us in anyway
from going ou the lands." Against
all this we liavo Mr. Ross himself,
who says ; "All I-ttid was to read
the provincial act to them, and refer
them to Mr. Trutch. * * *" I
did not advise these men to do this.
* *■. * They did not come for
advice." These statements are widely contradictory, but with the ovideuce before it the committee seems
to havo been satisfied that tho men's
statements should be accepted. The
point at issue in tins case is very
simple. Many years ago Bone,*
Lockhart, and the two Prestons preempted certain lands within the
Hastings Sawmill Co.'s lease, having
obtained permission to do so. After
occupying theso claims for a while
they were abandoned. McPhadden,
Sprott, Johnston, and the two Mac-
kies have gone on these abandoned
claims as pre-emptors. They claim
that by the original pre-emptions
these lands were taken out of the
lease, and when they were abandon
ed they became open crown lands
eligible for pre-emption. The gov
eminent contends that when the
claims were abandoned the lunds
lapsed to the position they occupied
previous to the original pre-emptions, and were covered by the lease.
This in the point of contention. If
we are to believe tlie evidence of
these men it must be confessed tlmt
the actiou of Mr. Ross was most injudicious, Hi- knew well enough
that theso lands had a groat prospective value on account of being
adjacent to the supposed torminus;
be knew that tbe Dominion land
act, under which tho railway lands
were tu lie administered, distinctly
excepted these lands from pre-emption, He admits that thef books of
record in the laud office were at his
command for reference, but says:
"It never occurred to me that the
land offico would be the best placo
to get information from !" Then it
should havo occurred to him, Beforo taking the responsibility of
locating tliese six men upon lands
where lie must havo known their
claims were at least doubtful, he
sbould bave applied for instructions,
and he would havo been advised
that the lands were not open. Mr.
Hughes, the lnt-e government agent,
testified that he had many application for these lands, but always replied they were not open. Mr.
Warwick, the present government
agent, testified to tlie same effect.
All applicants to the chief com mis-.
sioner at Victoria were told plainly
that they could not takeupthese lands.
But Mr. Ross, with wonderful disregard for the ordinary precautions
which suggested themselves to others, and wliich a.man who was deeply concerned for the interests of the
settlers and the country could
scarcely neglect, advises these people
that the lands were just as eligible
for pre-emption and settlement as
any other crown lands in British
Columbia! More than (hat, Mr.
Ross still persists in the assertion,
and doos not hesitate to say that
the government ought to give uj
these lands to the squatters, Besides tbe statements mado before
tbe committee, we have been in
formed by several gentlemen that
Mr. Ross advised them to squat on
these lands, but they would not, as
they believed a title could not be
secured. Mr. Ross may suy what
he will, but the facts, are against
him. Even the committee in its
report charges him with "misleading," and we have certainly said
nothing worso about liim than that,

Inroubill to restrict Chinese immigration. The provisions of the -bill
are siiuil-ir to those of the ouo passed
at last session. A tax of 850 is imposed upon overy Chinaman entering
the province if this bill goes into operation.
A Mint.—In tlio legislature the
other day it was moved by Mr. Orr,
seconded by Mr, Cunningham, that
the Dominion government be requested to establish a mint in this province,
The machinery of the old British Columbia mint is still stowed away in

Squatters' Committee. —On Thursday afternoon tho squatters' committee
wus not ready with a report, and asked
another day. Hon. Mr. Smithe pro-
tested against further delays. After
some discussion it was agreed to give
the committee until yesterday to prepare its report, but the premier announced that if tho report was not
ready thon tho house would go on to
the discussion of thu main question
without the report.
Who is thk Forger?—Mr. McTiernan, Indian agont, went to Victoria
last Saturday, accompanied by the Indian Charley, and gave evidence before
the squatters' committee. Mr. Mc-
Tiornan was shown the original conveyance from the Indiana to Spinks,
whieh lie is said to have signed, and
he swore that this document is n
forgery nnd a fraud. As Mr. Greer
does not profess to havo seen Mr, McTiernan sign this conveyance, the
question now comes up, who forged
Mr. McTiernan's name to it?"
Thb Monopoly Clausk.~A dispatch
from Ottawa says that Mr. Van Horno
recently made the following statement
to adeputation: "TheCanadian Pacific
docs not intend to 'enforce the monopoly clause in such a rigorous manner
as somo would suppose," said Mr. Van
Horne; general manager of the Canadian Pacific railway, to a delegation
which waited on him at tho Russoll
House yesterday evening. "The company, therefore, have no objection to
railways being constructed across the
boundary to the United States." We
hope Mr. Van Horno has not been
misrepresented, for in that event we
may look for a railway from this city
to the southern boundary.
Canada's Army.—According to a
roport laid by the Minister of Militia
before parliament, the total strength
of Canada's little army is 37,000 men,
over 30,000 being infantry and rifles.
Of theae only 17,200 worn drilled during 1834. Tho expenditures on account of militia last year were 8998.-
000, Gen. Middleton, commanding
the Dominion forces, in hia report to
the government strongly urges the
strengthening of Victoria, British Columbia, iu view of the possibility of
England being drawn into hostilities
with othor nations. The subject of an
extradition treaty betweon Canada nnd
the United States will engage the attention of the preseut session.
Hyack Band.—A new band, undor
the auspices of the Hyack Fire Co.,
has been formed, with the following
members; E. F. Daroy aiid G. Turn-
bull, solo cornets ; R. A. Hume, re-
piano cornet : J. McMurphy, euphonium; fl. Morey, solo alttfjii. Kelly,
bass ; A. Scoullcr. trombone ; William
Kelly, first horn ; W. H. Falding, (aecond horn ; Wm. Turnbull, aecond cornet ; D. McMurphy, bass drum ; H.
Readc, side drum ; P. Brandon, conductor. Mr. H, Morey ia secretary
aud treasurer of tho band. The Royal
City is able to support a good band,
and this one seems to contain the right
Bort of material, and ought; to receive
encouragement nud patronage.
 _**. .	
Nokth-West Lands.—According to
the report of the Department of the
Interior, just presented to tho Dominion parliament, settlement in tho
Northwest lost year was fnr from being
as satisfactory as in the two previous
sessions. Tho area of land taken up
as homesteads, pre-emptions, nnd purchased in the Northwest hi 1884 and
1883 were ns follows: Homesteads,
1884, 533,280 acres; 1883, 070,710
acros; pre-emptions, 1884, 304,0(10
acres; 1883, 059,000 acres; sales, 1884,
213,172 acres; 1883r 202,143 acres.
Total area-taken up in 1884, 1,110,512
ncres, compared with 1,831,982 acres
in 1883, and 3,099,145 ncres in 1882.
Total receipts to 30th June, 1884,
8788,13(1, compared with 8925,992 in
1883 and 81,727,280 in 1882.
Nor so Bad.—Tho Seattle Post
seems to bo greatly oxorcised over the
position of New Westminster in con-
souuouce of traffic changes which
will result froni tho completion of tho
O. P. R. It says that the latest
scheme to save this city from annihilation is the construction of a railway to
connect it with the main line, "but,"
it adds, "it is hardly probable they
can raise the money required, nnd
more doubtful if it will pay to do ao."
Thu Post, may rest quite assured that
we are abtindnntly able to raise the
necessary money, nnd that'thn connecting line will certainly bu built, Moreover, tho completion uf the C. P. R.
will placo New Westminster in a botter position than she ever beforo occupied for handling the mainland trade,
and she means to handle it.
The Branch Railway. -It is rumored on the street that there is no
agreement which will Bocuro the branch
line to this city, but that the government merely promises to put the 837,-
500 into tho estimates, The 12lh
clause of thu agreement between the
government and the syndinto rends as
Follows: "And it is lastly agreed tliat.an
the govemment of British Columbia
undertaking to pay tho company the
sum of 837,500, and upon the corporation of tho Oity of Now Westminster
securing payment to tho company of
tho further sum of 837,500, and providing a right of way and depot
grounds, tho company shall, during
tho year 1880, cntiBtract a branch Hue
of railway connecting the City of New
Westminster with the 0. J'. R., and,
shnll hurunftor operate nnd maintain
the same,"

Women's Franchise.--The question
of extending tho franchise to women
was discuBaed in the assembly Tuesday
last, on a motion, of Mr. Drake to thut
effect, The motion was supported by
speeches from Messrs. Drake, Cunningham,Galbraith, Robson and Grant;
it was opposed by Messrs. Pooley,
Theo. Davie, Orr and MpTavish. The
motion way defeated on the following
division : Yeas—Duck, Grant, Galbraith, Beaven, Cunningham, Semlin,
RobBon, Drake and Raybould. Nays—
Helgesen, McTavinh, Cowan, T. Davie,
Orr, John, Pooley, Smithe, Davie, A.
E. fi. Dingwall, Wilson, Martin, Mc-
Loose, Dunsmuir. It will be observed
that of the three members for this city
and district two voted hi favor of woman suffrage aud one ayainst. We are
convinced that this will before long bo
tho law of British Columbia.
Penitentiaries— The report of the
inspector of penitentiaries for 1884,
bIiovvs a decrease of convicts within
the year of 70. This decreaso litis
taken place almost wholly in tho uast.
In Kingston penitentiary nt the close
of the year there were 474 convicts, a
decrease of 60; in St. Vincent do Paul
204, n decrease of 43; in Dorchester
138, an increase of 13; in Manitoba
97, an increaso of 1; in British Oolumbia 93, an increase of 19. British
Columbia shows the largest increase of
any, but it must be romemberod that
u large proportion of llio convicts here
are Chinese and Indians. The several
ponitentiariea of the Dominion nre
estimated to be* worth 82,500,000, the
one in this province being rated at
8227,902.: The expenditures in main
tainiug tho British Columbia penitentiary during the year were 828,207,
and the revenue wus 8141- The value
of tho convict labor is estimated at
87,748, and tho farm produced 82,862.
 «^	
Trade Statistics.—From tho trnde
and navigation returns just received
from Ottawa we gather somo interest
ing figures. The .total exports of the
Dominion year ending 30th June, 1884,
amounted to 891,000,000, being a decrease of nearly seven millions'from
the previous year, The several prov

Ball to Mnjor Rogers.
(Correspondence of the Columbian,)
Burrard Inlet, Feb. 17.—One
tho most successful social gatherings
ever hold at the Inlet came off at tho
Brighton House on Monday evening
last. The event wait the giving of a
ball in honor of Major A. B. Rogers
on hia near departure to hia duties
further back iuto the interior of British Columbia; and if we may judgo
from the largo assemblage - one lum
drod and six sat down to supper—of
Indies and gentlemen, especially the
former, nnd taking for granted the old
adage that "ladies are the best judges
of human naturo," the verdict in favor
of the gallant major on last Monday
night was overwhelming. Nu pains
were spared by all interested to bring
the event to a successful issue. The
supper wna provided by Mr.Geo.Black,
proprietor of the Brighton Hotel, and,
if anything, it added to tho already
wido reputation of this excellent hotel.
Under the superintendence of Mr. Wm.
Newbury and Mr. John Rogers, tho
large hall of the houao wns gorgeously
decorated with Hags and evergreens,
the beautifully arranged design "Peek-
a-boo" over the music stand, being ex-
apeciully noticeable., The music wns
furnished by "Fannin's Serenndera,"
and, judging front the persistent ap-
plausu, was fully appreciated throughout the evening. Ono piece in particular, "Tho Selkirk Walt*," which wc
understand wns composed expressly
for the occasion, and dedicated to Mr.
Al. Rogers, thu gentleman who accompanied Major Rogers on his diflicult
exploration of tho Rogers Pubs through
the Selkirk Mountains, being the favorite of tht evening. Of the captains

A Man Trap.
Editor Colo mm ax.—You have goner-
ally boen vory observant of aty obstruction or nuisance in tho path of the pedestrian, I will now cnll vour attention to
a man or woman trap In the sidewalk in
front of Trapp Bros.' establishment,
You certainly could tiot have passed by
thore lately, for there Is no comparison
between what you have brought to pub-
lie notice and it, tlio most frequented
thoroughfare in tho city. I saw 'two
Indies with a perambulator in front of
them passing there; they did uot sec the
broken planks of course, and one of them
fell in between the nlanka and down.
Had thore hcou broken limbs there
would be a lino hill for the corporation
to foot; I mean tho tax payers. If the
chairman of the board of works can aee
nothing but the roads he had hotter resign and make room for another that can
look to the safety of the pedestrian aa
well, A Tax Pater.
Hctl-akalitla Troubles.
Tho following report of Hon, Mr
Robson's speech on the Metlakahtla
troubles wo take from the Valonisi:
Hon. Mr. Robson said tbat ho hud
refrained so far from speaking on the
matter as he considered that it had
taken the phase of a heated religious
debate. Ho was thoroughly in accord
with tho resolution in so far as tho
Dominion government were held as
the responsible agents to move in the
matter. But he felt some misgiving
about the last clause looking to the.
survey of the two acres, Tho speaker
referred to the celebrated Oka Indian
trouble iu the province of Quebec and
alao to the Manitoulin Islands Indian
trouble, both disputes about land and
religious differences, nnd great trouble
was experienced in arranging the matter. In both eases the Dominion government stepped in uud settled the
points at dispute. In the case of Metlakahtla he held that the first duty was
with the Dominion authorities, and
they Bhould have stepped in and taken
means lo regulate the matter; then it
would be tho duty of the provincial
government to assist iu preserving
order, The provincial government
had been watching an opportunity for
making a case so that they might step
in and assert the majesty of the luw,
and give the Indians to understand
that they were amenable to British
law. There had not yet been a case
where* the provinoial government had
power to interpose, but the Dominion
government had sueh power. It may
be said that Mr, Dunean and Mr.
Tomlinaon had been guilty of seditious
teachings, but the government had
never had sufficient evidence to convict
either of these gentlemen. It was
easy for honorable gentlemen opposite
t» ask why the government had not
taken action in the matter. They had
from first to last been moat anxious to
get an opportunity to act, He believ
ed the-most effective way of settling
the trouble would be the removal of
Mr. Duncan, Mr. Tumlinson and
Bishop Ridley, for he thought* the
wholo trouble arose out of the conflict
carried on between these gentlemen.
He wished, however, to be juat to the
missionaries, nnd he thought that Ian*
guage had boen used on the floor of
the house that was very unjust to
them. For many yearn Mr. Duncan
had been a terror to evid-doers on the
northern coast, and deserved credit for
the good accomplished at Metlakahtla.
But ho waa afraid that Mr. Duncan
had lost his hend, and had become to
some extent nn autocrat, and made
laws as well aa administered them,
Still they had generally been in the
right direction, and Mr. Dunean should
be dealt with, leniently. There could
not be a stronger testimony than that
used by tho member for Esquimalt
(Mr. Helgesen) when he related his
experiences of the strict honesty of
the Indiana nn the northern coast, and
the good accomplished by the missionaries. Hon. gentlemen had treated
lightly the fact that Lord Dufferin was
the firat to preach tho doctrine of the
Indians being the sole possessors of
tho lands in British Columbia. It was
a grave mistake on tho part uf Lord
Dufferin, but it waa treated as a heinous crime in the missionaries teaching
the same doctrine. They had no evidence that any of the Methodist missionaries had taught such a doctrine
except Mr. Crosby, .and he believed
that that gentleman had refrained from
teaching it since the commencement of
the trouble. He deemed it but justice
to Messrs. Crosby, Green and Jennings
that be should state that the government had held a conversation with
these gentlemen, nnd they had given
valuable information and advice as to
the best means of capturing the murderer of Yeomans. They tit tho same
time showed tho greatest desire to assist the government in dealing with
the whole matter. They had also helped Mr. Elliot to procure guides to penetrate the country for the arrest of the
murderer. If such assistance hud not
buen rendered it might hnve been
n much more expensive and dangerous
proceeding to secure his arrest. He
feared that Mr. Duncan's and Mr.
Tomlinson'a usefulness was gone, and
it wna also an unfortunate circumstance
that Bishop Ridley had been sent
there. The loss of Mr. Duncan's arbitrary power waa no doubt the cause
of his recent unfortunate course.
There wiib evidence to show that he'
had descended to teaching* that he
should nover have been guilty of. The
trouble had been hatched at Metlakahtla, and had spread over tho whole
const. To deal with the whole matter
was to deal with it first nt Metlakahtla.
The hon. member from Kootenay had
suggested no means that might bo
adopted to settle tho queition. It
would bu most egregriuus folly to bring
Mr. Tnmlinsiiii or Mr. Duncnn down
here and try them on a cose and lose
it. It would weaken the government's
power over the Indian population.
The hon. leader of the opposition asked, "Why don't the government act?"
and the hon. member forCnriboo said,
"Let them alone." For the present
thoy would be compelled to let thom
alone until they got something tangible
to work on. He would oppose takiug
sides with the bishop, as it would force
the Indians to take sides with -Mr.
Duncan. The honorable leader of the
opposition had suggested no means to
remedy the matter" oxcept to exclaim,
"Why don't tho government take action?" Tlio government were only
waiting an opportunity to take action.
Ho (Mr. Roiismi) took exception to
the aot of the Dominion government
in commuting tho sentence of tho Indian who murdered Yeomans. Ho
should have been taken to thu place
whero the murder won committed and
executed in the presence of the Indians. It was the duty nf thia government to impress upon the Dominion
government the necessity of taking
action in Indian matters, nud to convince them that they had beun dureliet
in their duty of administering Indian
affairs iu this province,. But if thu
Dominion government would still remain inactive then he thought that the
suggestion that tho Indian utTairs be
handed over to the provincial authorities for management would be a wise
one. Ho thought, however, that hon.
gentlemen should be careful in dis
cussing the matter to not uso language
calculated to irritate hon. gentlemen
on the floor of the house or unjustly
to impugn thu characters of gentlemen
outside.

NEWS FROM ALL PART8 OF THE W0RLI.
New York, Feb. 10.—Mrs, Dudley
writes to the Tribune, saying: "Kossa
preached assassination aud murder as
the highest form of patriotism aud advocated the dedication of life and liberty to
further tho cause of violence and bloodshed. When he made mean unexpected
convert and one who, not contented with
theory, put his lessons into practical
form, thus proving myself an apt pupil,
what right had he to complain ? Imitation I have always understood to be the
sheerest form of flattery. But Rossa'B
victim?, being 3,000 milea away from
him and brave-hearted, uo appeal for
mercy had ever reached him. Therefore, he neglected to teach me the proper
course to pursue in suoh an event. I was
brought face to face with abject cowardice for the first time, and, forgetting my
recent lessons. I reverted to the teachings of the heroes of my country, 'never
strike a fallen foe,'nnd gave Rossa the
worthless life he begged for," Sbo con
eludes: "Not the one-thousandth part of
the attrocitles committed almost daily by
tho followers of his doctrine in Ireland
against tho honest Irish people are over
committed hy Knglish people, whom lie
denounces aa suoh 'blood-thirsty tyrants.'"

governor of Berber to hia faithful followers. The document begins: "In the
name of God," etc., and continues: "Today, after midday prayer, I received a
letter from the faithful Klialif, Obdullah
Khen Mohammed, in whioh lie says that
Khartoum wai taken on Monday, the
9th Itabi, 1302, on side of El Haoui, in
the following manner: El Mahdi prayed
and blessed the troops, who then advanced against the fortifications. They
entered Khartoum, and in a quarter of
an hour killed the traitor Gordon and
captured his steamers and boats. God
has made him glorious. Be grateful.
Thank and praise God for his unspeakable mercy. I announce it to you."

*l Clilncsc " Gordon,
Major-General C. fi. Guidon was
born in 1 KltO, and was a younger sun of
the late Lieutenant General Henry
William Gordon. R. A. lie was educated at Taunton, and at Woolwich
Military Academy. In the Crimean
wur he served with credit in the Royal
Engineers, und, after the treaty of
peace was signed, waa one of the commissioners to determine tbe new Russian frontier, Hia first visit to China
was in 18(10, and, by his bold aud judicious conduct in supporting the Chineso Emperor against the Tai-piug
rebels, he earned the thanks of both
English and Chinese Governments, as
well as the soubriquet of "Chinese
Gordon," by whioh he is now universally known. He disciplined the rude
Chinese soldiery, relieved several
fortified towns, drove the Taj-ping? beyond tho Great Canal, and effectually
suppressed the Great Rebellion. In
the previous war, which ended with
the occupation of Pekin and the destruction of tho Summer Palace, he
had also taken an active part. The
highest military honors were bestowed
upon him by the Chinese Emperor,but
the rather inadequate reward of his
own government was only a commission
aa a colonel. After filling the post of
Commanding Royal Engineer at Grave-
send (1805) and of British Vice-Consul
at the Danube Delta, bis presence in
Egypt was earnestly requested by the
late Khedive, Ismail Pasha. The condition of Egyptian affairs was, iu soma
points, even worse than it ia to-day.
The aim of the Khedive was, through
Gordon, to put down tlm infamous
slave-trade and to re-establish his own
waning power. "With the help of
God," said General Gordon,-on assuming command, "I will hold the balance
level."
His first act was to reduce his own
pay from £10,000 to £2,000. For five
years, at Khartoum, on the White Nile,
around the lakes and in Darfour and
Cardovan, he worked with the' moat
indefatigable zeal, disregarding personal exposure, fatigue and danger. The
slave trade was in part suppressed, and
the country became far more quiet and
orderly than it has been since or was
for years before. Tho reputation for
justice or humanity soon gained by
Gordon among the natives waa the
real source of Tub strength, aud the belief of thu British Government in his
popularity with tho natives is thu principal reason of his present mission.
The present Khedive, Tewfik Pasha,
haa never been favorably disposed 'to
Gordon, and three years ago the latter
resigned his office. Since then he has
served in turn with Lord Ripon, in the
Mauritius, and in the Basuto war at
the Cupe. Of late he has been engaged
in archmological and similar studies in
Jerusalem. He had to return to London with the view of assuming leadership of the scheme for opening the
Congo river to commerce under the
auspices of tho association of which the
King of the Belgians is the head, when
the gravity of the Egyptian crisis caused the English Government to eagerly
and insistently force upon him hia present mission. This brief sketch of his
career indicates most clearly that ceaseless activity devotion to duty ntid a
rare faculty of organization are his salient characteristics.
-Since arriving in the Soudan Getieral
Gordan has issued two remarkable
proclamations, iu the first of which he
exhorted tho Soudanese to lay duwn
their anna, declaring that their rights
would be maintained and intimat-
iuif that slavery would again be allowed, an intimation which excited great
indignation in England. In the second
he reproached tho peoplo for tlieir hostility, and said that he was forced to
summon to his md tho British army.
Upon the issuance of the latter proclamation El Mahdi took measures to
cut oil'the return of Gordon to Lower
Egypt. For a time, escape was possible by a trip up tho Nile, nndu doubt
ful nnd dangerous attempt to cross tho
wilds of Central Africa to the settlements on the Upper Congo. Of this,
however, General Gordon refused to
avail himself, and,gathering into Khartoum such troops as he could call about
him, he prepared to stand a siege. For
n time the British Government appeared to have abandoned him tu his fate :
but in August last the expedition under
General Wolseley was organized for
his relief. The delay, however, had
been too long; for, after a year of successful resistance, and' just ns relief
was at hand, Khartoum has failed into
the hands of the False Prophet, and
brave Chinese Gordon is either dead
or a prisoner in the hands of tho Arab
fanatics.
THB FAIJ.KN CITV.
Klini tuiiin ia tho seat of government
of the Egyptian Soudnn. It is situated
on thu banks ot the Bluo Nile, nearly
at its junction with the Whito Nile—
lat. 15 deg. % miu. N., Ion. 32 deg.
38 miu. E. The population is about
15,000. It is about 1,450 feet above
the sun, but the inundations of the
White .Nile frequently reach the
earthen wall by whiuh it is surrounded.
The houses aro mostly composed of
millet stnlkx, and are scattered over a
wide area; but the town has recently
boen much altered. Dr. Schweinfurth,
on his return froin his expedition into
the hentt of Africa in 1871, saw iu it
a large number of new buildings, n
spneiotti quay on the banks of the Blue
Nile, nml somu still more imposing
erections mi the other side of tho
river." There are extensive gardens
nnd rmvH nf date palms planted nearly
half a century ago. The dofectivo
Iniimige of thu portion of tho town
built below high water level renders it
ery unhealthy.
Thu inhabitants are, or were a
month ago, a mixture of Egyptians,
Borbeta, Arabs, Turks, Jews, Euro-
poana and negroes. It is probable,
however, that the Christian elements
of the population have fallen prey to
the swords of tliu wild followers of the
new prophet. They possessed a Coptic
church and a Catholic mission. Khartoum carries ou nn extensive ivory
trade, mostly in the hands of six of
tlm larger merchants, whioh facilities
also the operations of the regular slave
traders, who pour into the country annually by thousands, on the roads over
Kordofan and Darfour.
In the center of the city ia a atrong
citadel, surmounted by n high tower.
Besides tho wall several strong redoubts
defended the city, and the island of
Tutti, on tlie Blue Nile, just below
Khartoum, was strongly fortified.
Within this city, aidod by such troops
as he could gather from tho inhabitants
and friendly tribes in thu neighborhood, Genci'itl Gordon has for a year
belli El Mahdi and his hordes at bay.
Even uow it is believed by somo that
Gordon has shut himslf up iu the oita-
dvl and is still holding out; but thia is
scarcely possible, ns Colonel Wilson,
on his approach to -the city, saw no
signs of a conflict or of any occupation,
save that of the Arabs. Neither the
English nor the Egyptian flag was

k REMARKABLE STORY.
(Continued.1
"Aunt Catherine is—all vory well;
but she's nu old woman. Sho may
have undei-Btood business in hor day.
I suppose sho did, or things would not
have come to ub in the state they aro.
But we cannot permit ourselves to bo
kept in the old jogtrot because of Aunt
Catherine. She departed from hor
father's rulo, no doubt. Ono generation cannot mould itself upon anothor.
At least, that is not what I understand
by business."
"And there was .John Vernon, don't
^ou know,1' said Harry. "Ho whs a
caution! I shouldn't like to follow in
his ways.".
"John Vernon was a fool; ho throw
his chance awny. I've gono into it,
and I know that nothing could lie more
idiotic, And his extravagance was unbounded. He burned tho candle at
both ends. I hopo you dun't think I
want to tako John Vernon foi- my
model."
"It seems to me," snid Harry, "that
it's awfully easy to bo ruined by speculation. Something always Imppotis to
put you out. There worn tlioso mines.
For my part, I thought they wero ns
safe as the bank, and wo hit a lot by
them. Thoro waa nobody to blame, ho
far hb 1 know, I dont mean to atnud
in the way, or be obstructive, aa you
call it, but we havo got to consider
other people beside ourselves."
Roland did not look upon the matter exactly iu this way. Ho wns not of
Harry's stolid temperament. Ho heard
of a proposition so important with
something of tho feelings of a war-
horse wlten he sniffs the battle. But
his opposition was all the more weighty
because it was more or less against his
own will.
"In your place I do not think I
should venture," ho said, "If I wero
an independent capitalist, entirely
free—"
'•You would go in fur it without a
moment's hesitation. Of course you
would. And why should we bo hampered by imaginary restrictions ? Aunt
Catherine—if it is her you arc thinking of-need know nothing about it,
and we risk nobody so much na we risk
ourselves. Loss would be fnr more fatal to us thnn to any one else. Am I
likely to insist upon anything which
would make un end of myself first of
all if went wrong?"
But the others were not convinced
by this argument. Harry shook his
head, and repeated his formula.
"It wouldn't console anybody who
was injured that you ruined yourself
first of all," he said.
"Nor would it comfort me for the Iobs
of a fortune that other people had rejected it," cried Edward, with an angry smile.
His mind worked n grent deal faster
than the conversation could go, nnd
tho discussion altogether wns highly
distasteful to him. Harry had a right
to his say when the subject wns broached, bnt it was beyond measure disagreeable nod embarrassing that Harry
should have hoard anything about it.
It was all Ashton's fault, whom ho had
consulted by way of satisfying his conscience merely, and whom lie cuuld
ii'it silence, or find fault with for betraying him, since, 'if course, he wanted no one to suppose that he acted on
his own impulse nnd mount tu leave
Harry out. Ue could not express all
this, but, he could drop the discussion,
and Ashton, lie thought to himself,
along with it. Let him prose as he
would, and chime in with Harry's little inattcr-of-fact ways, he (Edward)
had no intention of allowing himself to
be stopped.
"I would lot it alono, if I wore you,"
Roland said. "It is n great temptation, and, of course, if you were entirely independent— But I would not
risk a solitary penny of other people's
money.'1
"That's juat whnt I say. We have
others to consider besides ourselves,"
said the steadfast Harry.
Edward made no reply. Ho was
outvoted for tho moment by voices
which, he said to himself, had no right
to be heard on the question. The
best thing was to end the discussion
and judge for himself. And the contemplation of the step before him took
a way his breath; it took the words out
of hia mouth. Tliere would be nothing
to bo said for it. In argument it wuuld
be au indefensible proceeding. It was
was n thing to do, not to think, much
less talk about. No one would have a
word to say if, aa was nll but absolutely
certain, his operations were attended
by success. In that event his coulness,
his promptitude, his daring, would be
the admiration of everybody ; and Harry himself, the obstructive, would
share in the advantage, nnd nothing
more would be heard of tho stock
phrase. Edward felt that in reality it
was he who was considering others,
who waa working for everybody's benefit; but to form such a determination
was enough to mako the strongest
head swim, and it was necessary that
he should shako tiff nll intrusion, and
have time and solitude tu think it over
in private.
Tlie wny in which ho thus dropped
tho discussion astonished both the
othor parties to it a littlr. Edward
was Bcldom convinceablo if he took nu
idea into his head, and he never acknowledged himself beaten. But Hurry at tirst was simple enough tn ho ablo
to believe that what ho had himself
said waa unanswerable, and that, na
nothing could bo done without his acquiescence, Ned showed his sense by
dropping the question. Roland wns
not so easily reassured ; but it was nut
his business,-, winch made a great difference in the wny to consider the sub
ject, and it was not for lum tn ooiRtdor
a subject which tho persons chiefly
concerned had dropped. He strolled
with Harry into hia room presently, nn
a hint from Edward that ho had sumo-
thing particular to do. Hnrry waa not
vory busy. Ho did what oiuno under
his special department with sufficient
diligence, lut that waB not nppreaaivn
work. The clerks tuok it off hia hands
• in great part. In nil important matters
it was Mr. Edwnrd who was first consulted. Harry hnd i-nthcr a vetu upon
what whb proposed than an active hand
ill it; but he was very stundy, always
present, setting the hest example tu
the clerks. Itoland talked to him for
a quarter of an hour pleasantly enough
about football, whieh cased tlm minds
which had been pondering speculation.
The result of the morning's conference
was shown in one way by his ready and
unexpected adherence to Mrs. John's
statement that she Uked Hnrry best.
Roland thought so too, but ho did not
give nny reason for it; and, indeed, so
Far aa -intellectual appreciation wont,
there was perhaps very tittle renson to
give.
After Emma's gloves were bought,
the group, sauntering through Redborough just at the hour when nll the
fine people of the place were about,
were mot in succession by the two
cousins. Hanry had time only to pause
for a minute or two, and talk' to  tho
gh'la, oil his way tu it mooting pf Uio
football club, at which thu matches ul'
the season wero to be settled ; but Edwnrd, who was going their way, walked
with them as far as tho Grange. Ilo
was palo nnd pro-occupied, with that
fiery sparkle iu his eyes which told of
sumo pressing subject for his thoughts,
aud though those oyes shot forth a passing gleam when ho saw that Roland
kept by Hester's Bido, and that he was
loft to Emmn, the nrrangement on the
wholo waa perhaps tho most suitable
one that cuuld have been made, for
Emma wanted little help in keeping up
something which sounded sufficiently
like conversation. Her voice flowed
on, with just n pause now and then
for the littlo assenting ejaculations
which woro indispensible. Edwnrd
said "Yes," sometimes with u mark of
interrogation, sometimes without; nud
"Indeed," and "To bo suro," and
"Exactly," as wo nll do in similar circumstances, nud tbo pair got on very
woll. Emmn thought him much nicer
than usual, nnd Hester, going on in
front, somewhat distracted from Roland's remarks by tho consciousness of
tho othor behind her, wns perhaps
more satisfied to hoar his stray monosyllables than jf ho had muintniuod a
moro active part in tho conversation.
When thoy stopped iu front of the
Grange, whoro Catherino Vornon, always nt tlie window, saw tho group np-
prunuhing, they wore called upstairs to
hor by a servant- nu invitation, however, which Heater did nut accept.
"My mothor will bo waiting forme,"
sho snid, and whilo the others obeyed
tho summons, sho sped nlong the wintry mnd by herself, not without that
proud sense of loneliness and shut-outness which the circumsttincess made
natural. Edward lingered a moment
to speak to her while the others went
in, having firat ascertained that they
woro shaded by tho big holly at the
gate, nud invisible from the window.
■ "I must not go with you, though I
wnnt to talk to you," he said. "When
will this bondage be over ? But at tho
Merridews' to-night—"
"I nm not going," sho said, waving
her hnnd ns sho wont on.
She whs hnlf pluased, yet altogether
ungry, despising him (almost) for his
precaiitiousnoas, yet glad that lie wanted to talk to her, and glad also to disappoint him, if it is at nil possible to
describe so complicated a stato of
mind. She went nlong with a proud,
swift atop, her head held high, hoi-girlish figure instinct in every line with
opposition nnd self-will; or so, at least,
Catherine Vornon thought, who looked after her with such attention that
ahe was unaware of the entrance of tho
others, whom she liked ao much better
than Hester. She laughed ns she suffered horself to be kissed by Emmn,
who wns ntways -effusive in that way,
and then fed upon the chocks of her
frioiida,
"Su Princess Heater hns uot come
with yuu," Catherine said. " I suppose I shuuld have gone down to the
duor to meet her, as one crowned head
receives another."
"Oh, she had to go home to her
mother," sajd Emma", who never spoke
ill of anybody, and always took the
most matter-of-fact view of her neighbors' proceedings.
Catherine laughed, nnd wns amused,
she thought, liy the girl's persistent
holding aloof.
"All the same, d cup of lea, would
not have poisoned her," she said.
When the Ashluns left the Grange
it was nearly tho hour of dinner, and
Catherine did not remark the silence
of hor companion. .Edward hnd been
moudy of lute. Ho had not been of
tomper su equable, ur of attentions so
unfailing, as in the earlier years. But
she was il tolerant woman, anxious not
to exact too much, and ready to represent to herself that this wns but a
"phase," and that tho happier intercourse would return nfter a time. Site
wondered sometimes wns ho in love?
That question which occurs so unnaturally nt moments when things nre
not going on perfectly well with young
persons, either male or female. Catherine thought that if his choice wero
but a good one, she would bo very
glad that lie should marry. It would
give to him that sense of settledneas
which nothing elBe gives, and it would
give to her a shnro in all the now
events nnd emotions of family lifo.
If only he made a good choice ! The
wholo secret of the situation, was in
that. It dinner ho was moro cheerful;
indeed, full nf animation, doing everything that could bo dono to amuse and
[dense her, but excuBod himself from
following her to the drawing-room
afterward,
'You are going to Ellen's folly, I
suppose," she said, which was the namo
that the Merridew entertainments held
iu tho house.
"Very likely, but later," said he ;
"I hnvo a great deal to do."
Cntherino smiled upon his diligence,
but held up a finger in admonition.
"I nover approved of bringing work
home," she aaid. "I would rather, for
my own part, you stayed an hour longer nt the bank. Home Bhould be for
rest, mid you should keep tho two
places distinct. But I suppose yuu
must learn that by experience," sho
said, putting her hand carelessly upon
his shoulder, as he held tho door open
for her, nnd she looked back upun him,
whon sho passed out,with a little wave
of her hand. "Don't sit too long over
your papers." sho said.
Ho had Irop de tele. No fear of Edwnrd shrinking frum his work. Rut
experience would teach him thnt it was
bettor to give himself a little luisuro
sometimes. Would experience tench
him ' sho nsked herself, us she went upstairs, He was of a fervid nature—
apt, porhapsj to go too far in anything
that interested him. Shorollcctud thnt
she had heraelf boon oldor beforo sho
began to have anything to do with
business, and a woman looks forward
to home, to the sent by the fire, the
newspaper, if thore is nothing better,
the domestic chat when that ia to bo
had., with moro zest than a man doos.
What she herself liked would havo
beeu to have him there opposite to hor
ns ho used to be at lirst, talking or
rending, ns pleased him, telling her his
ideas. Why was it that this pleasant
statu of affairs novor continued? lie
preferred lo sit iu the library now to
work, or, perhaps only, alio begun to
four, to bo alone. Tho idea struck
Catherino sadly, now shu came to think
of it. Thoro wus a grent difference.
Why should men profer to ait alone, to
nbandon that domestic hearth which
sounds ao well in print, and which,
from Cowper downward all the writers
have celebrated? Even Dickons, then
the master of evory heart, mado it nppear delightful and attractive tu everybody. And yet tho young man preferred to go and sit alono. A wife
would alter all that, provided tho
choico he made was a good une, Oath-
oron Vernon' said. The drawing-room
was a niodol of comfort. Its furniture
was not in tho taste of tho present dny,
but the carpets' wero like moss into
whieh the foot annk, and the curtains
were close drawn in warm, ruddy, silken folds,
