On Wednesday a long discussion
took placo on the petition of Mr.
Fiirwell and others to be defended
in their title to cortain lands granted by the crown. Col. Baker recited the circumstances of the case and
maintained tlmt the government
ought to stand by tho crown deed,
lion. Mr. Robson expressed his regret that the hou. attorney-general
was not present to give the house
the benefit of his advice in this case,
That gentleman, ho said, had repeatedly expressed the opinion when
the petitioners had importuned for a
crown grant for the lands in question that it was not within the power of the government to issue a crown
grant. However, they pressed for
weeks and weeks that crown grants
be issued, stating that they would
be willing to fight their own battle
if the titles were brought in question. It was only under persistent
importunity that the then chief commissioner finally issued the crown
grants for the lands, though those
receiving them at that time were
informed that they were probably
not worth the paper they were writ-
ton upon. However, they had decided to take the chances, and, in a
word, fight their own battles. This
being the case, he could not see the
justice of the petitioners—at least
some of them—in coming to. this
house and asking that the expense
of an appeal to the privy council be
borne by the province. So far as
tho policy of the government in issuing crown grants under the circumstances was concerned, he was
quito woll aware that it might be
questioned. Cut the crown grants
having beon issued with the understanding that those receiving, rttol.
were to fight their owA tattles, be
could not now see his way dear to
support their petition for assistance.
The petitioners were personally his
friends, and of course he would be
glad if be could support them; but
he must stand between them and
the taxpayer, and his duty pointed
out that, in the interests of the latter, he must explain the position.
He admitted that the petitioners
were entitled to receive the moneys
paid for the crown grants, and probably interest. Mr. Martin thought
the prayer of the petition should be
granted. Mr. Heaven expressed
satisfaction at the straightforward
statement made by Hon. Mr. Sob-
son, and Mr. Humphreys said it
quite changed his opinion of the
easo. The debate was finally adjourned. Mr. Ladner moved that
whereas the boundary line between
British Columbia and Alaska is
likely to be defined at an early date:
and whereas the piece of land situated south of the 49th parallel of
north latitude und known as Point
Roberts, containing about 4 square
miles of territory, is so isolated from
the United States of North America that the only means of communication by land is through British
Columbia; and whereas during the
summer months a great number of
Indians aud others congregate on
that picco of land and cause great
annoyance to the settlers in the
vicinity of Fraser Mouth, British
Columbia; therefore, lie it resolved,
that his honor the lieutenant-governor bo respectfully roquosted to cull
the attention of tho Dominion government to tho desirability of placing before the commissioners to be
appointed the advisability of ao-
quiring tho said Point Roberts land.
The mover said this small strip was
" no man's land," and a resort for
smugglers nnd disreputable characters. Mr. Humphreys thought it
would bo dangerous to meddle with
the matter, Hon. Mr. Robson did
not know that the passing of the resolution would produce embarrassment iu itself, but it might interfere with tho adjustment of a far
moro important matter—the boundary between British Columbia and
Alaska, This question, he had reason to bolieve, would bo settled before long. The resolution was cur
ricd. Mr, Higgins moved that in
the opinion of tho house no session
should exceed fifty days. This harmless resolution was also carried after
a debato in whioh Mr. Bolo declared
that if so much time was wasted
next session as had been wasted
during the present one by long
speeches, it would bu diffioult to find
good men who would consent to become candidates at the next general
election. The Granville squatters
ooiuniittoi* report was unanimously
adopted.
A Zui'ieli institution has offered a
pritw of 2000 francs for new investigations of "the filiation whioh the

FMSCO'S WELCOME.
Sin Fbancisco, April 13.—The
Call today saya thot San Fronoiaco
welcomes the new Canadian line aa it
would welcome any new line of steamers sailing out uf this port. If it pro-
Sreposes to compete seriouily with the
eet of the Pacific Mail and the Oriental and Occidental Companies it will
have to lay on better craft tban the
Parthia and Abyssinian. Ships are
not like wine, they gain neither value
nor popularity with age.
FOR CANATM,
London, April 12,—To-days emigration to Canada is the largest on
record. The emigrants exceeded 2,-
000, the bulk of whom are British,
though a number of Oermans, Swedes
and Norwegians are also proceeding to
colonies in the northwest. The steamers sailing during the next few weeks
are well booked up.
AID FOR THE EVICTED.
Dublin, April 12.—Two thousand
people started to-day from Taum,
County Galway, to plow and sow the
lands of tenants who have been served
with notices of eviction. Ther were
accompanied by wagons laden with
beer and provisions. A detachment of
police followed the campaigners.
ABOUT THE TROTH.
Washinoton, April 12.—Consul-
General Phelan, who is here on his
way from Halifax to St. Louis, Baid of
the fisheries treaty to-day: "Thu
people of Nova Scotia and Oanada are
all opposed to the treaty. They do
not want it, our people are very foolish
in opposing the treaty, for it opens to
us more than one oould have hoped.
All the criticisms I have seen are based
I upon tlie assumption that the treaty ia
'Ihb'oVlginal one. Thatia not correct.
They forget the treaty of 1816, and
that tho Knglish people were tenacious
in holding to everything they could.
Iu my opinion the more public the
treaty is made the better, for when it
ia submitted to the American people
in nil its bearings and intelligently dia-
cusaed they will see how favorable it ia
to the United States."
THE COUNTY COURT JUDGE.S
Ottawa, April 12.—In the houae
of Coinmona to-day there was a discussion on Mr. McCarthy's bill for the
protection of railroad employees, and
Mr. Kirkpatrick's for reciprocity in
wrecking. In both the debates stand
adjourned. The Hon J. S. D. Thomson gave notice of a motion providing
fim, the. rearrangements of judicial
salaries in all the provinces, the proposals for Brirish Columbia being as
follows: Four county court judges
each 92000 per annum for 3 years
and (2400 subsequently. These are
not to be debarred from accepting
from the province the offices and
salaries of stipendary magistrates also.
THB C. F.  B.  AND 'FRISCO.
San Francisco, Apl. 12.—Local
freight and Passenger agent Stein, of
the Canadian Pacifio Railway, stated
to-day that the newspapers seem to
think that the running of the Canadian Paoific China steamers down to
thia port will have a tendency to annul our contract with the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company, for the transportation of goods between San Francisco
and Victoria. Thia is not a fact.
Goutlull, Perkins & Co. will continue
to carry our overland freight from San
Francisco. Tho agency of J.D. Spreckle
-and Brothers fur the China steamers
will not disturb the contraots the Canadian line has with tho Pacific Coast
Steamship Company. Messrs. Spreckles are now tho general agents of the
Csnadian Pacific Railway Company in
San Francisco, and 1 will continue to
bo thu freight and passenger agent of
all east-bound freight. We could not
wait for our steamers to ijo to Vancouver rihuti thu Pacific Const steamers
run two and three timer a week.

IIOIIASHKK  INTERVIEW!*!!.
Paris, April 13.—The Figaro publishes an interview with Buulangor in
which the latter aaya: "It was not I

Another week ia gone, and the
aession of the provincial legislature
keepB slowly, but steadily nppronch-
ing the period of prorogation. But
there does not yet appear the first
indication of tho approach of that
great Bhadow which our local cotom-
porary has repeatedly assured us
wonld certainly overtake the present session. Where aro these 11!
If our cotemporary has not lost all
hope of regaining his lost reputation
as n prophet, he will lijive to hustlo
nbout so as to escape the uncomfortable reflections which invariably associate themselves with disastrous
defeat.
It is stated thut the steamer
Rithet, now unclorgoing repairs ut
Victoria, is shortly to take the placo
of tho Yosemito on tho Westminster-Victoria route. This is very
much to be regretted, and we think
the board of tradu ought to protest
against the employment of this
steamer as contemplated. The
Rithet is an excellent steamer of
her class, but it is the opinion of a
large majority of the people that she
is entirely unsuited for carrying passengers across the straits. If she is
placed on this route we shall have a
repitition this summer of the experiences of last year, when travel between this city and Victoria was forced into the circuitous, inconvenient,
costly, nnd unnatural route via Vnncouver. tt is a fact well-known
that there are dozens of persons in
this oity who would not on nny account cross the straits on the Rithet,
or any other flat-bottomed stern-
wheeler. When tho Hon. Mr. White
was here a complaint was mado to
lii111 by the board of trade with respect to the employment of the
Rithet, and it was expected that
when the now mail contract was
made vessels of her class would be
ruled out. In the interest of this
city the board ought to renew its
protest, and tho government ought
to see that the efficiency of tlie mail
route which costs a large sum of
public money should not bo destroyed. It is a matter of too great
concern both to this city and the
publio generally to be allowed to
pasi unnoticed. If the change is
merely a temporary one, for a few
trips, so as to allow the other steamer to be overhauled, it is all right;
but it will not do to have the.
Rithet placed permanently, or for
any length of time, on this route.
In the legislature the other day
some opposition members wero finding fault with tke appropriations for
their respective districts, and blaming the government for unfairly distributing the revenue. Mr. Humphreys remarked that that the appropriations tor Westminster district
were excessive when compared with
those for Comox, Mr. Ladner, however, quite disagreed with the member tor Oomox, and very truly said
that every dollar put down for
Westminster was justly deserved.
Mr. Orr even went further and declared that the appropriations for
this distriot should have been at
least $20,000 larger than they were!
That might be said without exaggeration, and Mr. Orr might just as
well have made it 850,000. In
fact, the whole revenue of the provinoe for one year at least might be
spent in this district without a
single dollar being wasted. There
is no district in the province so deserving of government aid, or in
which it is more urgently needed.
This distriot is outstripping all
others in rapid advancement both in
population and development, and it
is unquestionably the most populous
and promising of all the districts. It
would be in the public interest,
therefore, if the roads and bridges
and other public works were put in
first-class condition so as to meet
the reasonable requirements of the
circumstances. But there are other
pieces in the province where improvements are urgently needed, nnd
where tbe public interest demands
considerable expenditure, and it will
probably be found that the division
made of the revenue, as shown by
the estimates, is as good and fair a
division as could be hoped for under
the circumstances. The worst feature of the whole financial scheme is
the proposal to throw upon the cities
one-third of the cost of their public
schools, while they are taxed for
their full share of the revenue
required to maintain schools in other
municipalities. This is an injustice
which, if not rectified, will produce
a feeling of profound regret and disappointment in the minds of those
who in these cities have given the
government their hearty approval
and support. We hear nothing but
disapproval and condemnation of the
scheme.

After listening to this pr.ittlo for a fow

Washington's Inllueuire.':
In 17.W the number of post-offices in
1 tho United States was seventy-five. Tho
■ oiilinnry "mail facilities," wero such as
_f   travellers afiorded.
In Virginia, courtesy ordainod that
every horseman, goin*on a journey,
should have in his saddle-bags, or portmanteau, a wallet in which to carry letters.
When the horseman put up for tho
night, his wallet was carefully opened,
and the letters belonging to that neighborhood were taken out aud forwarded
by tho inhabitants of tho hamlet, I! a
letter was endorsed "on tho public service," any man—such was then tbe sentiment of public duty — would readily
volunteer to ride aud deliver it.
The postmaster of Staunton, Va., for
forty-three years, from 1708 until 1841,
was a man named Tromper, a leather-
breeches maker, who had been a lieutenant iu the Continental Army. He was
appointed by Washington, a fact which,
in the opinion of tho community, gave
bim a life-tenure of tbe office.
"He wu generally surly and unac-
coniodating,,r aaya the author of the -*lii-
urifs uf slugtuta County, "at least the children who went on errands to the post-
office thoughtso. Nobody ever thought
or complaining of him to tho department.
He bud been appointed in tlu administration of Washington -tlmt gave a sort
of sanctity to his right of possession—nud
the post offico was conceded to bim as
liia prlvato property, to do as he pleased
with it."
'ilia anecdote well illustrates Washington's influence. For forty yean the
popioof Staunton endured this minir-
ir.Tiiininiodating postmaster, because lie
ha 1 been appointed by the "Father of
b:r) Country." , ____.f    ..r
"Light From Abo««." .
In the days when nature and rovolatlon
were pitted against each other, David
Hume, the sceptic, wrote nu essay on
th r sufficiency of tbe light of nature Dr.
Jioiiertson, the historian, replied to it by
an ess ty on the insufficiency of tho light
of nature and the necessity of revelation,
'ihe two gentlemen were friends, though
antagonists.
Hue evening at Robertson's' house,
whero a literary party had assembled,
nature and revelation was the topic of
tou.ersation.
Hume was presont, and joined in tbo
conversation, and urged his view with
bis us ml subtilty: whilo Ur. liobertsou
k t forth his faith in revolution wilh
(i' at clearness and power.
ilurue rose to depart before the othor
gu sis, to whom ho bowod as he retired
through the door, followed by the host
witii a light to show liiru tho way. '
'l'lay, don't trouble yourself," said
Hume to his host, "I find the iiglit of
iio.'iui* tkutstyi ii0cienl,"
He walked on, along the hall, stumbled
over something, and pitched through
tli' open front door down tho steps aud
into ihe street
nr. inibcrison ran after him with the
lijrt, nud holding itover him and assisting iirtn to rise, sTirl, quietly, "You had
b-ntar have a light from above, Mr.
Hume."    _ .._
"Do you remember tho text this
morning, Bobby?" inquired tho minister, who was dining with tbo family.
"Yes sir. Tho last shall bo first and
the first shall be last."
"A nd do you know what that means ?"
"1 don't believe it means much. I'm
never first, or oven second, I'm always
last," said hnn**ry»H«IH>y, ••*

Rev. Mr. Cryder of tho Church of

A Story of Bishop Simpson.
An incident showing his gifts is related
by his uncle. La! e one Saturday uignt
he arrived at a town iu Uie moiiutainouu
regions of Pennsylvania, whero lu wasa
total Btranger. Thu noxt morning he
mado his way to the Methodist church,
and accosted the pastor, telling him he
wus a brother iu tne ministry. Simpson
being extremely awkward and plain in
appearance, Iho pastor was half inelinod
to o.uit tho courtesy duo to a brother
preacher, of asking him to deliver a sermon., li ho inquired of tho bishop as to
his namo ho must have failod to catch it,
for ho certainly had no idea to whom ho
was speaking. His-, rumiest for tho
stranger to. preach wns tuereforo ox-
press jd in tlm most formal and constrained manner. Tho si ranger readi.y
agreed to till tho pulpit, au I tho pastor's
chagrin was evident, as lu reiigin-d himself to his fate. The blshup preached
ono of his powerful sermons, an I everybody in tho audicm-o wlib-paed to Lis
neighbor, "Who is he ?"
iieforo ho had takeu his soat tho pastor
had him by tin h ind, ''What did you
say your namo was ?"   ^._ „

' "Wlwtl   Not tho Ushop 7"
"That is what thoy call me."
The minister instantly sprang to his
feet and shouted, "Vou have just had
the privilege of listening to idaluip.Siuip-
•jon'. Let us sing, Traisj -..od Jr.uu
whom all blessings How.'"

woman wroto some montliB ago as follows, and her statistics wero so well calculated that they will bear re-printing
once a month: "My homeless friend,
yon say you havo for years longed for
the free, independent life of the farmer,
but havo never been able to get enough
niouev together to buy a farm. But that
is met where you are mistaken. For several yearn, you have been drinking a
good improved farm at tho rato of 100
squaro feet at a gulp. Figure it out yourself. An aero of land contains -UVitlO
square feet. Estimating land a 513.50 per
aero, you will seo that is just one mill
per square foot and ono cent for ton
squaro feet. Now, pour down the fiery
doso and imagine you aro swallowing a
strawberry patch. Call in flvo at your
friends and havo thoin help you gulp
down a flvc-hundrod-foot Harden. Hot
on a prolonged spree nnd soe how long it
requires to swallow a pasture large

A $10,000 Suit
We are informed that pipers have
heen served on Dr. Cooper in an action
for $10,000, damages claimed by Dr.
Fagan, of St. Mary's hospital. The
aotion is founded on an alleged remark
of Dr. Cooper's in reference to the
treatment of McLeod, who died at the
hospital. Dr. Fagan claims that tho
remark was libelous. The case is to
be tried in this city. We understand
that Dr. Fag-an has rotained a number
of legal gontlemen, and that Dr.
Coopor will conduct Ins own defence.
Sunken Ban-*****.
Many of tho tishermen complain that
sunken snags are quite numerous in
the river, below this city, and it is no:
infrequent that their nets are damaged
by coming into contact with these
snags. This week one fisherman lost
9 fathoms of his net and another lust
6 fathoms. There are several very
naaty snags in the vicinity of the B. C.
cannery that ought to be removed bo
fore the fishing season fully opens.
The Samson mitiht be detailed to do
this work, it would not tako long and
the benefit to thoso hard working fishermen wonld be {jrcut. Damage to a
net not only incurs the expense of
mending, but the loss of time also,
which is the most important of tho
two.
DToIcs i>y the Wny.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham, who lately
passed over the C. P. R. from this
oity to Toronto, makes somo interesting notes upon tlie trip. He says: " In
all my travels I never saw such an extent of worse than worthless country.
For the last 1000 miles the snow still
covers tho ground to a depth of from
3 to 5 feet, with no signs of spring
whatever." This observation refers,
of course, to the long stretch of barren
territory lying along the north of Lake
Superior and the Georgian Bay. Mr.
Cunningham saw this in the worst
Beasou. It is certainly not a promising country at best, but some parts of
it are rich iu minerals, and from Sault
Ste. Marie east there aro large tracts
of excellent land which some day will
blossom like a rose. Mr. Cunningham
continues: "I am much pleased with
Manitoba, but from Rat Portage to
North Bay is more than Siberia. Tho
lake is still solid here (Toronto) and
business is dull. I passed over 1000
emigrauta on the way. Where the poor
people aro going, and how they arc
going to make a living, God only
knows. I foar that transportation
companies and real estate brokers aro
leading many unfortunate people to
destruction. I pity tho poor people
from my heart." The conclusion Mr.
Cunningham arrives at after taking
observations along the journoy, is that
"tho peoplo of British Columbia are
not noarly thankful onough for thoir
splendid heritage."
Found nt Last.
It will be remembered that a paragraph appeared in tho Colombian a
few daysago that a Mr. Hogben olaimad
to havo lost a couple of validcs, and
eharged two Indians with the theft.
He engaged two Siwashea to carry the
valises from one hotel to another,
and accompanied them himself while
they performed this task. The next
morning the valises were mis-sing, und
Hogben made up his mind tho Indians
must have stolen thorn, so he applied for a warrant for tlieir arroHt.
Constable Carty went to work on the
case, but could got no truck of the
valises, though he found the ludiiins
and brought them before Mayor Dickenson, who, on examining them, could
find nothing whatever to indicate that
they had stolen the valiaus, The Si-
washe-j acknowledged to carrying the
valises, but anything further knew
nothing about them. Mayor Dickenson, therefore, refused to let them ho
arrested. Mr. Hogbcn was incensed
at this proceeding, and threatened to
send for Supt. Roycroft and a private
detective to thoroughly investigate the
matter. However, he did not do so,
but discovered last night that he had
removed the valises, himself, to a private house, and had forgottt-n having
done so. This discovery settles the
great valise transaction, and removes
the implication of dishonesty raised
against tho Indians, who are said to be
honest hard working fellows. The
painful look of anxiety, so visible on
Constable Catty's faco for thu last
week, has disappeared, and, with the
recovery of the valises, his countenance has once moro resumed that
broad aud cheerful smile that fits him
to a nicety.
Personal.
D. McRae, inspector of timber limits, is in the eity.
James F. Garden, C. E., of Vancouver, was in tho city this aftornoon.
0. M. Bolton, U. S. consular agent

looking well and hearty. He will

B, Saunders, of Toronto, left for
home to-day. Mr. Sanders is moro
tban delighted with New Westminster,
and considers it the most beautiful
city in British Columbia. Tho signs of
improvement ond progress everywhere
visible made a favorable impression on
him, and he returns to Toronto greatly
pleased with his visit.
There is nothing equal to Mother

The Impressible Jenkins.
Mr, Louis Eckstein returned from
Chilliwhack to-day, where he had been
for tho purpose of wresting W. H. Jenkins, tha agricultural implement
agent, who wnfi supposed to Iib about
to leavo the province with a largo cum
of money in hia posesaion which should
havo been transmitted to Mr. Bole.
Mr. Eckstein arrived in Chilliwhack
on Wednesday and shortly afterwards
Jenkins roths down to the landing.
Jenkins made a feint of getting off his
lump and the constable advanced to
seize him, but Jenkins was not prepared to surrender and as tho constablo
got near him lie shouted out " Hurrah
for King William nnd tho white horse,"
clapped tho spurs into the animal's
Bide and 'dashed off at a high rate of
speed. Mr. Eckstein and the constablo gave chase, but wero not successful in catching their man, whe took to
tho t ">h and remained there till morning. \ eaterday afternoon Jenkins, by
the advice of a number of friends, surrendered, and was placed in charge of
Constable Bruce to await the departure of the Btr. Gladys for this city. It
was deemed host that Jenkins and
Bruce should Bleep together, so that
there would be no chance of tho prisoner making his escape. In the night,
when.the constable was enjoying a
very refreshing and necessary slumber,
JenkinB quietly got out of bed, dressed, and departed in silence. Whon
the constable awoke he was astounded
to find that Mr. Jenkins had
taken French leave. Mr. Eckstein felt bo disgusted with everything in general, that he packed
up, and, after giving the constable a
lecture on watchfulness, left for this
city. Tho constable, however, -pas
aggravated and hurt at the cool and
unfriendly departure of his bedfellow,
and determined to catch him or die.
Ho was successful, and Mr. Jenkins is
now safely guarded and will be closely
watched by wakeful sentries till ho
reaches Westminster to-morrow.

of the remarks the Crown Prince made
in toasting Princo Bismarck at the

tho Crown Prince stid: "Of the last

and the people are cheeiiug tho present ruler, who shared in founding the
greatness of tho Ffttherlafi'd. Your
Highness, like us all, will sene him
with the same old German, manly luy
alty. To uso a military illustration, 1
will compare the present) situation
with that of a regiment advancing ou
au attack. Its commander hue fallen,
but the next in command, though hard
hit, rides boldly in advance of all, his
gaze fixed un tho flag which its bearer
waves on high. Thus does your high-
iiuss hold the banner of the Empire,
and may it long be permitted to you,
in conjunction with our beloved and
reverend Emperor, to hold on high
tho Imperial nag. God bless and protect the Emperor and your highness."
THE MOOKI3H DIFFICULTY.
Washinoton, Apl. 11.—Commander
McCalla, of the United States steamer
Enterprise, has made a long report to
the secretary of the navy on the difficulty in Morocco. After stating the
generol situation, as already published,
the commander says that whilo he lias
no desire to pass upon tho question of
the equity of the protection system involved in tho dispute, he is of thu
opinion that as the rights of tho
United States nre very clear under the
treaties, they should be upheld so long
as thu provisions of the treaties
nre not modified. While Moorish
officials should not be held to tho strictest accountability for the violation of
convention rules adopted by more
highly civilized nations, it is well to
undo' stand that the oriental character
•m
iher-iCastorla
is quick to take advantage of the waving of auch rules, and to accept as a
right ft point whioh might occasionally
he yielded. Consul Lewis has, Mc.
Calla says, in the interest of conciliation, and from tho highest motives,
yielded At times when no was clearly
supported by existing treaties and
might with propriety havo insisted upon the rights they accorded. Those
same rights, it would appear, very often have been questioned whon the
proteges of any other nation havo been
under consideration. The commander says the rights of the United States
havo boon denied us, while the same
rights under the same conventions
havo beon freely accorded to other
powers represented. ll» says the
United States government is at a disadvantage on account of the fact that
while all other powets parties to the
convention of 1880 are represented by
ministers resident, congress only provides for a consul for the United
States.
