Current Events nnd Opinions.
' In discussing the fishery question,
a portion of the American press
adopt an irritating tone not at nil
likely to conduce to concessions on
the .part of Canada. It is of course
true that the question of the interpretation of the 1818 trenty lies
between the British and American
governments; but to Rssume. at the
Boston Globe does, tlmt Canada has
no voice in the disposition of her
fisheries is to Assume too muoh.
Canada has rights in tlie premises
whioh she will stand by, notwithstanding that she Is dealing with a
nation "seven times ns large and at
leu-it ten times as powerful" as horself. To ndduce thi* ns a reason
why Canada should tamely submit
is hardly worthy of so powerful a
nation. It may suit the American
argument to assume that there is
plenty of room for contention as to
whether the treaty of 1818 has
been superseded or not; but Canada
denies this; the treaty is in force,
and for this mightier nation to try
to avoid its obligations is simply
dishonest Cunada maintains that
Under that treaty American fishermen have no right to buy bait in
Canadian ports and harbors; and, if
her government does its duty, it
will resent auy attempt from Downing Street to throw open the Canadian fishing grounds to American
fishermen, without a proper equivalent. If this should be done through
an Imperial order, the best course
for Canndn to adopt would be to
impose a prohibitive export duty on
bait sold to foreigners. That would
bo a perfectly legitimate return in
kind for.the exclusion of Cunadinu
fish from the Anicric-.m markets,
If Americans have, in the opinion
qf i the Imperial government, a right
under any treaty to buy bait as n
mutter of ordinary trading, Canada
has an indisputable right on the
other hand to protect her fishing
Industry hy, imposing*?! duty on >he
export of bait; and that duty ought
to be prohibitive, until the United
States government again opens its
markets to Canadians or giv63 some
other fair equivalent for the privileges Americans are now trying to
get for nothinp.—The Week.
The seizure of the fishing sctioon
ers by tbe Canadian authorities reopens an old dispute between the
United States and Great Britain.
Thc contention ahout the fisheries
began iu 1814, and iu the second
Volume of his history Mr. Blaine
gives a lucid account of it, and
states the American case. . The
difference was adjusted temporarily
bythe Reciprocity Treaty of 1854,
and by the fishery clauses of the
Treaty of Washington in .1871.
Bui these agreements are no.longer
operative, and the treaty of 1818
remains as tbe only specific arrangement upon the subject. This treaty
was negotiated hy Albert Gallatin
and Richard Rush, and it contains
a practical surrender of what were
regarded for more thnn a quarter of
a century after the Revolution as
our undoubted rights, It permits
American vessels to enter Canadian
waters for certain purposes, and uo
other, and among the purposes mentioned the buying of bait is uot
included. Last year, when the ar
rangement of tho Treaty of Wash*
ingtou expired, a diplomatic understanding was reached extending the
existing arrangement until the close
of the fishing season, and the president in his annual message to congress proposed an international
commission to take up the whole
subject and settle conclusively the
long and vexatious dispute. , The
Senate, probably Upon the-theory
tlmt tho case was perfectly plain,
and that there ought not to he nny
dispute, rejected the recommendation. But tbe conviction of one
party in a quarrel that his right is
indisputable is not apt In lmvo grout
Wtiiglit with the oilier, and tho ixi
•ub. is that two American sOhohn-
ers hnvo beon seized in Canadian
waters, nnd a Canadian lb-el is snid
to be in prepniMlion to patrol llio
const, imd the soimto has adopted a
resolution authorizing the president
to retaliate by treating Canadinn
vessels in our ports precisely as ours
'are treated in Canadian ports. H(*i*o
is the old dispute revived, and as
fur from Iin il settlement ns ever.
Thero is no doubt that the only
specific agrcemotit botween the countries is tlm treaty of 1818, and that
that treaty does not admit American vessels to huy bait. Our reply
is that the treaty has beon practically superseded hy commercial nr*
rungenionts and legislation. Caleb
dishing contended thut Englnud
hud totally misinterpreted the treat)*
to our disadvantage. Senator Ev-
urts, whose view upon such a subject is worthy of careful consideration, holds that tbe fishery rights nre
regulated by trenty, but thnt, trnns-
actions like the purchase of bnit nre
determined by legislation or special
convention,' But this -view does not
dispose of tbe a|strtfo| that the
treaty of 1818 is a" special convention prohibiting the purchase of
bait. Meanwhile, nothing, is clear
but the seizure of the :.vessels.
Whether they are seked ob engaged
in violation of treaty stipulations or
of the customs laws does not appear.
There is a great deal of warm assertion and defiance and reproach. But
it is evident that .the dispute remains, not Indeed' with Canada,
which is. not a principal, but with
Great Britain, Our case must lw
submitted to tho Foreign Office unless we propose to stop with simple
retaliation. But retaliation would
not adjust the dittcrenck --There is
no reason to a*oubt the (fondly disposition of the Brittsh^ernpient
in the matter, noi* that Ox-Ire will be
a satisfactory issue of the. affair so
far as international relations are
concerned. But the situation is a
eoinplete justification of thc President's course ih recommending a
commission definitely to conclude
tlio whole question. In this country we are very firmly of opinion
that commercial legislation has al
ready settled it. But the actual
situation shows that it has not settled it. American vessels are seized,
and tbe Senate retaliates, If upon
consideration ythe .British government ngrees that our view is correct, and that the point in controversy has buen determined by legislation, nnd that damages are due to
tbe seized, vessels, tbe trouble, will
be for -the time pacified. But the
question of, tho proper interpretation
df the treaty of 1818 is still open,
The question o'f the fisheries in tho
largo sense still remains, and good
understanding and good policy require that it should be thoroughly
treated --and'satisfactorily settled by
agents specially empowered for that
purpose, ^-Harper's. Weekly.

Liquor Licenses.
Is it right-far responsible citizuus to
allow their g-iverumfent tb liconso liquor
selling 1 1 think uut, for the following reasons. If tln-so reasons are not
founded on a solid hesis nnd in harmony with the divinely designed object of civil government, I should like
tu havo it pointed out.
THAFTI0 IH STROXUTRIKK AN EVIL.
Tho great mass of intelligent, moral
persons admit that the traffic in strong
drink is nu evil. But it is something
moro than an evil iu the popular political sense of tha term. It is a physical evil, inasmuch as it-very, seriously
injures the bodily organism and deteriorates tho race. It is a social evil, inasmuch na it leads to a full development of all those principles that are
antagonistic to virtue,-happiness and
unity. It is a moral evil, inasmuch as
it is a deliberate choice or determination to act contrary to tho revealed
moral laws of the Deity nnd. ought in
justico and accuracy to be termed wickedness. That is Qod's name for what
some politicians'call very softly an
evil. Hence tho dealers iu intoxicating drinks and ilioir patrons sny that
it most bo regulated by a license luw.
Woro it not au admitted evil in their
sense there would be no necessity for
regulating it. But it is positively
wrong to licenso nny evil." The Bible
is definite cm this point, "The wickedness of the wicked is in hishourt:
hembhorrcth not. ovil."—Ps. 36:1-4.
'Tho soul of thVwioked desirsth evil."
-Prov 21: 10. "Return ye now
overy one, [fi-otfl liis evil, way."—Jer.
18:11. "Evil shall slay the wicked."
I'm. HI; 2. "Tribulation and anguish
shall come upon every soul of man
who d-uitli evil. '—Rom. 2: 0. "God's
testimony concerning Job wna that he
eschew td or refrained from or shunned
."—Job, It 8. There are two characters here: oils'.who favors evil—de-
Hires It; persists in it—exposed to a
criminal's death on account of it, aud
to futuro death as a consequence. The
other refrains from it und' shuns il.
Shall wo licenso evil I Wo do it at
tlio peril it <nir souls. Ood will not
long he mockedi for we shall most
certainly reap whnt we sow. There is
not a single instance on record whoro
ho hns failed either tu reform or to destroy. He does not license; he prevents, 'prohibits aud reforms, or ho
destroys.   A license law  is not only
(lartiul hot un cnu rutins evil, A license
aw chiefly accomplishes two thin-gs: It
protects .the dealers in intoxicating
drinks in iheir- terribly destructive
truffle; nud it provides the drinking
classes with the facilities of gratifying
(heir unnntural appetite, tu thoir injury. ' Both of these things are inunur-
at niid -sinful, because they increase
eriin^ psuflerlsm unrf'misery to'a'fea'r-
fully untold extent. It is brulal cruelty to thc drunkard's wiftr and child-
ivn to licenso a man to sell to the hus-
bind nli.I (.iibei-*-" lljJU whirli brutalizes

More Organ Discords.
The local orgnn of the late provincial government professes to be
much pleased because Tub Columbian is publishing extracts from its
editorials of 1879 m which Mr.
Walkem is held up to public scorn
and condemnation. The organ does
not deny that these were its opinions
then, or that its opinions have now
so far changed that it is constrained
to declare that "there is no mun in
the province so iit to be prime minister" as Mr. Walkem; and it puts
forward no feasible explanation for
the change of front. There is an
explanation, however, which our
cotemporary might have put forward.
After abusing the Walkem administration for years the editor of the
Guardian wrote a letter soliciting
patronage from that administration
and promising his support if the
patronage' was given. The otter
was at lirst Bpurned, but it was
finally accepted, and the organ
thereupon completely reversed its
tune and began industriously grinding out music appropriate to the
new order. This is the only explu
nation that can \*o given of .the
political eccentricities of our co-
temporary, because it is the true
explanation. We now submit a
few more extracts from the Guardians opinions of Mr. Walkem and
his government in 1879, and with
these we shall probably rest pur
case for the present:
From the Guardian,September 10:1870.
The Walkemites have run their course,
happily for ub, in such a reckless mnnner
that nothing can now Bave them. The
districts which returned their supporters
by large majorities would now reject any
candidate that would support them, and
they will doubtless ask their members
to resign if they continue to follow
Walkem in his mad career. There are
perceptible shadows that pressnge coming events, pointing all to the overthrow
of the worst local government the country ever had.
•  -From ttipKrta»raiaii,yav*mlH-r*.--J:187!i.
If a number of thesa-tntm, finding that
the present order of things alone will
permit of their being in tne house, and
in order to retain their seats they continue to support Mr. Walkem, then the
people must take the matter into their
own hands and turn them all out.
From tho Guardian. Augtut 0;18T<>.
The same fate is impending to the
Mud Bay bridge nnd numerous others,
for the sake of a little timely expenditure; thus thousands of dollars of public money art being wasted because our
government lias a pet scheme for the
cultivation of votes add in order to pro
ride for n-fBtnal aunorters. And what
is this laheme? SWply, the most ntro-
ciouB fraud that ever disgraced thu an*
nab of any country. For instance, the
people of this country were cajoled and
tricked into tbe expenditure of about
two hundred and ten thousand dollars—
under tlie most solemn promises that it
was not to coat them one cent—on what
Mr. Walkem has stated to be a worm*
eaten cofferdam. Thia tame leader of
the government is now proceeding to ex*
Send two hundred and fifty thousnnd
ollars, which he hopes to obtain from
the Dominion government, oh the same
rotten -structure. * * * We ask the
people of the province to consider wliere
they are being led; they are beinu fleeced
to an extent never before paralleled in
any civilised country, their credit iB
being pledged  to the Dominion for a
Suarter of a million which will have to
e repaid, and pending repayment the
subsidy paid by the Dominion, forming
tlw principal part of our present revenue,
wilt be proportionately reduced, requiring more taxation to make up the difference. The position then is this: The
men at the head of our local government
are—from ignorance or design—forcing
the province into bankruptcy, and depreciating tbe value of every description
of property in the most reckless manner,
With these facts clearly apparent licsi
tation is ruin. The three men now
driving us to perdition must be removed
from power, and the affairs of the country placed in the hands of men endowed
with some degree of honesty and common sense. How the people of Uritish
Colnmbia bave so long patiently allowed
themselves to be robbed and their homesteads rendered worthless, is beyond
comprehension. Had atl the mischief
been done with any approach to ability
or with the proper consideration for np<
pearauceB, somu allowance might havt
been made. But our present focal government is wanting fn every redeeming
quality, the laws being framed in a hm
. tally awkward manner showing a per
feet regardlesflnssH for humanity, justice
or legality. The last straw has evidently
been placed on the camel's bnck, and the
sooner the people save themselves by
ridding themselves of the present government the better for themselves: the
continuance of these men in power is
only thrusting ns lower and lower ht the
•Mie of despondency.
It must not be forgotten tliat
tliese denunciations were applied
not only tb Mr. Walkem but to the
whole of his cabinet, which included
Mr. Beaven, now leader of the
party. But how ihe Guardian not
only supports Mr. Beaven and his
party but declares of Mr. Walkem
"that there is no man in thc province so fit to be a prime minister!"
'   ~__*m*   '
a selection the moral status of tho
candidate will not be overlooked.
Persons aro sometimes foolish enough
to promise their vote to the candidate who tirst asks for it, because
they do not like to refuse. An otec-
tor would be wise if he refused to
make any promise until all the candidates have announced themselves,
and then he ought to select those
who are worthy of confidence and
best qualified to represent the constituency. There will.dpubtlesB-be
candidates whose aim is the accomplishment of some selfish scheme,
aud who concern themselves little
for the good of the constituency.
Such candidates ought to be rejected, because whenever tjieir own interests come into conflict with the
public interests, tho public interests
are sure to suffer. Let tho next
parliament be composed of men
that will command the respect and
conlidencn of the province.

' Om* esteemed-, colomporary the
Vancouver Herald refers at length
to the question of 'railway passes
arid government patronage as
brought up by the late motion of
Senator Mclnnes. The Herald does
not think it likely' that senators
would be influenced by free pnsses,
or that the O. P. H;,cpmpany would
be guilty of using 'any such means
to influence legislation. Having
satisfied itself, onj these points it
asks if, assuming that such illegitimate influence is used, a newspaper
can occupy an attitude of independence towards a government from
whioh it receives patronage. Our
cotemporary is comparing two .things
that nre not itlike, and the conclusions reached aro as incorrect as thc
data upon which the argument is
founded are misleading. We believe there are many members of"
the senate and house of commons
whose judgment and vote would not
be influenced by a pocket full of
free pusses; but we are afraid there
are some whom a-single pass might
influence very .much. There aro
members of the senate and -joiii-
mons who, we are quite sure, would
not suffer their vote to be influenced
if they were to receive patronage
direct from the government in the
way of contracts or supplies; but
tho law of Canada does not permit
a man who holds a contract or fur
nishes supplies to sit or vote in the
house. Docs our cotemporary think
it would be safe to remove this restriction? We believe he expressed
very strong opinions on that point
some months ago in discussing the
conduct of a member of our own
legislature who had been furnishing
supplies to government institutions.
But if it is uncharitable to suppose
that a senator's vote would be influenced by the free gift of a pnss
for which no equivalent is asked,
was it charitable for our cotemporary to suppose that a member of
the local legislature would be influenced by receiving money from
the government for which he gave
a full equivalent in goods or work?
A pass over the C. P. B. would bo
a gift of no small consideration to
some of the members of the federal
parliament It would, in fact, be
worth to them many hundreds of
dollars, and for this valuable gift
they were asked for no consideration whatever. In our opinion the free pass looks very
much more like a bribe than
the furnishing of government supplies, and we ara sure our co-
temporary does not wish to have
the law so changed ns ttt permit
members of parliament to furnish
supplies. Our contemporary says it
has a "better opinion of tlm directors of the C.P.R, that! to suppose
that they would attempt to treat
members of parliament ns a purchasable commodity." We hope our
cotemporary'b opinion is well founded ; but why did he hold a different
opinion respecting the government
of Britisli Columbia because it allowod supplies to" -b& purchased by its
agents from a member of the house?
Jn the latter case the government
could not really bo held responsible,
because the supplies were arranged
for and received, we believe, without
its approval; but the free passes
wero a deliberate transaction for
which responsibility could not be
shirked by either party. We cojnc
now to the question of government
advertising and independent newspapers. Between this and the distribution of free pnsses to tho senate
then* is no' ground of- comparisoii.
A newspaper's advertising columns
are one of its sources of income;
and if it is a newspaper worthy tht
name, an advertisement iu its columns is worth the sum paid for it.
The newspaper that publishes government advertisements, therefore,
gives a full equivalent for the sum
received, but tho senator is asked tn
give nothing whatevttr for tlio pass!
One is a freo gift without condition:
the other is a fair commercial transaction whero one equivalent is exchanged for another.   It is perfect
ly truo that a newspaper publisher
will generally be glad to receive
government advertisements, if he is
able to* get fair prices for them ; ujut
he is- even more nuxidus to receive
business advertisements; and our
Vancouver cotemporary will hardly
say thnt a publisher is not in a position to puss an independent opinion
on a transaction in which any of his
advertisers happens to he concerned,
simply because of that patronage.
But he must,-either take that position or surrender the position he bos
taken with respect to government
advertising. Government advertisements are published for public information, and they are paid for, or
ought to be paid for, at current
rates; and there is no way in whioh
the government can so cheaply und
effectively' make known its officiaj
declarations as by publishing them
in a newspaper of general circulation. The publication becomes,
therefore, a public necessity—but
there is no plea of necessity in the
caso of free passes to senators ! If
it is good policy and good law to
prohibit members of parliament
from furnishing supplies to government on the ground pf improper influences, we hold that it is far more
important that they should be prevented from receiving free passes
from a powerful corporation whose
relations with the government have
lieen very intimate. Our reason for
this nuitentioii is that those who
furnish government supplies give an
equivalent for the money received,
while a free pass asks no consideration whatever, unless it be a favorable disposition -*of the recipient
towards the company which gives it

The great popularity of this preparation,
after its test of many years, should bo an
assurance, even to tho most skeptical, that
It Is really meritorious. Those who have
used Hall's Hair Heneweu know that
It docB all that is claimed.
It causes new growth of hair on bald
heads—provided tho hufr follicles are not
dead, which Is seldom the case: restores
natural color to gruy or faded hair; preserves the Bcalp healthful and clear of
dandruff; prevents tho hair fulling off or
changing color; keeps It soft, pliant, lustrous, uud causes it to grow long aud
thick.    '
Hall's Hair Benewek produces its
effects by tho healthful influence of its
vegetable ingredients, which invigorate
ana rejuvenate. It Is not a dyo, and Is
a delightful nrticlo for toilet uso. Containing so alcohol, it doos not evaporate quickly and dry up the natural oil,

Bible Society.—In the report of
the Directors presented at the annual
meeting of the Upper Canada Bible
Society recently held at Toronto, at
which the Bishop of Huron was the
principal speaker, we find the following
reference to the branch in this city:—
"We have just heard from our most
distant branch, New Westminster, B.

to the funds of the society. Also a
donation of 025 to the building fund
of thu new Biblo House. The detail*

Sir John's Visit.—It was stated in
our last issuo that Sir John Macdonald
was expected to visit British Columbia
during tlio Hummer. Wu learn lhat
the visit has been fully decided upon,
and that this city will not he left out
of tho programmo of the. distinguished
statesman. Sir John will be accompanied by Lady Macdonald, Hon,
Tlioa. White and Mrs. White, and during his stay iu this citv he will be the
guest of Bishop Sillitoe. The date of
his arrival hus not bopn definitely
fixed, but he is expeoted during the
first week iu July. It will be seen by
the report of tho city council proceed

Last ov tite Bison. -For many
years it has been a matter of speculation as to whether the American Indian or the bison would go first. Bnt,
according to Mr. Nimmo, United
States statistician, the speculation is at
an end, for he estimates that there are
not above 1000 head of the bison spe
ciea in existence, ond it goes without
tbe saying that, this laat remnant will
shortly go the way of the rest, and the
species bo extinct. Mr. Charles Goodnight, one of the largest cattlemen of
the Panhandle, seeing that the buffalo
will' in a few years be a curiosity, has
concluded to keep a herd on his Pato
Duro ranch. He will keep a portion
of them to themselves, and with others
ho will try tho experiment of crossing
thein with the polled angus bull.
> Customs Seizures.—On the 3rd of
April the collector nf customs at this
port seized a steam threshing machine,
self-binding reaper and sued drill, imported by Mr. T. W. Calhoun. Tho
seizure was mado on the ground of
under valuation' and false description,
'fho goods were held subject to the
decision of tlm tuinutor of customs.
That decision has beeu received. It
requires thu importer to pay the full
amount uf duty as determined by the
collector) all expenses connected with
the BeiKure, and a fine of $200, tit her-
wisu the goods will be forfeited. Yeaterday the collector seized at McLaren's
brick yard, Purt Haney, a span of
horses brought over frum Washington
Territory without having paid duty.
We understand thnt another seizure of
considerable extent hns been made al
Mud Hiy, hut tho ruling of the minis*

Glaostonr's Defeat."— A- second
time Mr. Gladstone has been defeated
on the Irish question. His tint defeat
was accomplished by Ihe votes of the
Pnrnelliles: his second is in spite of
thnt vote. Tho defeat of the home
rulo measure will not bu unexpected,
and it is not, perhaps, aground of very
much regret, For somo days ovents
have beun shaping so as to lead to thu
conclusion tlint (he measure would not
pass Its second reading. Thc bill Itself,
notwithstanding amendments, contains
many objectionable clauses, and it may
be better that' home rule should be
postponed for a brief period thnn that
it should bo established upon a wrong
basil which it might be diflicult afterwards to readjust. Wo nre quite certain this is only a postponement of
the question. It is sure to be carried
either undor the guidance of Mr,
Gladstone or, perhaps, under less skilful hands. The majority against the
hill was 80., It is not known what
coune the government will taku under
the etr an instances, hut It will probably
bo resignation and possibly dissolution
of parliament.

B.C. Express Held lip!
92000 REWMD FOR THE HIGHWAYMEN.
A despatch from Cacho Creek, dated
last Saturday, says: "About 10 o'clook
this morning, when one mile south of
the 83-mile stablo, the B. C. Express
company's coach, Tate, driver, was
stopped by two masked highwaymen,
who tired shots from revolvers and
Winchester rifle over hia head. The
highwaymen seized the Cariboo treasure bag, which they robbed obits con-1
tents, with the exception of ufie small
package of 91000, which they overlooked in their haste, fata was then
ordered to drive un which he gladly
did. Constables are in pursuit." As
soon as this news reached Victoria the
government issued notices .offering*- a
reward of $1000 for the capture of the
robbers, and the express company
offered another 91000. It ist a rare
thing for auch an act to ba committed
in British Oolumbia, and we earnestly
hope the fellows may be taken. Ou
Monday night the government agent
in thia city received the following telegram from Mr. F. Soues, government
agent at Clinton: "Stage robbers are
described to me as suddenly leaving
Bridge Creek. One tall, thin featured,
small pointed nose, and dark complexion, small dark moustache. The other
short, stout, round built, but nut corpulent, blue eyes, very round face,
small blonde moustache, very pleasant
spoken.. The tall one very silent; both
very well dressed, but clothes somewhat worn; the smaller grey colored
tweed. They bought 100 lbs. flour and
one aack salt from J. Hamilton, Bridge
Creek, on 10th May."

in this district aud throughout Mritit-h

a total abstainer to represent them ju
fiarllsmentf If the caime is gooil let it
iave a fair representative for the next
five yean and prove ita mt-ritfl. There
are many and important questions relating to Uritish Columbia tliat require to
be brought prominently before tlio government, such as the lnnd question, the
fishing, und liquor license; uud in all
these it requires a man of firm and honest
principle to obtain the just rights of the
people. I hear of quite a number of
aspirants, but I trust in this day of
grace, and opportunity, the lovers of
right and justice will come forward and
elect a man who they feel assured will
do what is right in any position of trust,
bearing in mind a representative is most
always taken us a sample of those he

Dominion Day Music.
Editor Columbian. —In your issue of
the Sth inst. you ask for au explanation
relative to the hiring of a band for the
1st of July, 1880. Now, as there suems
to be a misunderstanding in the minds of
many in regard to this matter, I beg
leave to state the facta which ure as follows: About two weeks ago we were
made cognizant of the fact that tho inhabitants of our sister city, Vancouver,
bad made up their minds to celebrate
Dominion Day and a deputation from
that city waited upon tho Caledonian
and St. Andrew's Society to see if it
wen possible for this society to postpone
their sports until a later date, but as tins
day was decided upon about two months
ago this society did not think it would ho
to their interest to postpone such and of
sueh a fact Informed the Vancouver deputation. At the same time it came to the
knowledge of tho Caledonian and St,
Andrew's Society that our town hand
bad been engaged by the Vancouver people to play for them on the lst prox.
After our regular monthly meeting I
telegraphed to Victoria to ascertain at
what price a band could be procured
from that city for thc lst July, Bhould
we require one, aud received an answer
as follows in reply: "That music would
be furnished dining the day for the sum
of sixty dollan (§(i0) and for tho ball in
the evening an extra charge of twenty-
five dollars (925), making iu all $85 for
day aud evening performances." On receipt of tbis a public meeting was called,
when Mr. J, Armstrong and myself were
appointed a committee to engage music
for the day aud evening. We immediately, interviewed one of the New Westminster Band authorities and wero informed that their band was engaged to
--jflay-at Vaiico-ii-K-r on tho 1st prox,, hut
if we would wait until the evening they
would let us know more particularly.
Same evening a deputation from our city
band informed ma "that they would
furnish music during the day for $75,
but would not play during tho evoning."
In answer to this 1 told them that if they
Ced for the same prices as Mr.
. nes' band we would prefer to engage
our own townsmen. This they refused,
and as a sub-committee of our citizens
ami- society, ytiyp,,,then neaumblcil the
abdrw-facts ntw at once laid before thom,
and on this question being put before the
meeting by our chairman it was curried
that the Victoria band be engaged at the
rates quoted per telegram as beforo shit
ed, Now, Mr, Editor, I think this will
show to all who may be interested in the
successful carrying out the sports of our
national day that my action in this matter has beeu straightforward and above
board. Apologizing for taking up so
of yonr valuable space.—-I remain

Tbe Colonial Exhibition,
The London journals have naturally
hud much to say with regard to the
Colonial Inhibition, They are unanimous in tliu expression of admiration
of its magnitude and material value,
while imt a few look beyond and see
ill it n moral aspect infinitely greater.
Take, fur instance, tho Tunes,-still the
l.-adur of the press At the,time of the
first great exhibition, five-and-thirty
years ago, it says, it could hardly have
occurred to anyone that the British
empire itself would, in the next generation, bu capable of furnishing forth
from its own resources an exhibition of
tho products of its industry, agriculture, and fine arts, by tbe side of which
even the great exhibition ■ of 1»1
would almost have paled its ineffectual
fires. But it is as the symbol of the
moral unity of national sentiment
which constitutes a world-wide'empire
thut-' "the exhibition Appeals most
Btrongly to every subject of the Queen.
In the Conservative press the exhibiting is commented upon with muoh
enthusiasm. To the Standard it is the
lirst distinctly Imperial festival celebrated on English soil—a display of
immense, commercial and political
value. Tho fraternity of nations, to
accomplish which was the object of
the exhibition of 1851, wm a dream;
lhe oneness of the British empire, as
shown bythe present show, is a foot.
The Morning Post passeB in hasty review the vest changes in the British
empire since the'age of' exhibitions
commenced. India was still unsettled,
Xe*r Zealand was .the object of contention between English settlers and.the
Muories, the magnificent colonies of
Australia were still but a "dumping
ground" for the dregs of .the criminal
classes of the Old Country, while Canada was only commencing the work of
constructing the network of railways
which now brings the produce of her
most distant fields within reach of the
markets pf Europe, the occasion reminds the Telegraph that Canada is
now not only within a,week of Liverpool, but has supplied in ita transcontinental railway a new link with our
distant dependencies in the Pacific
Ocean. The evening Globe thinks te
might fairly challenge the whole world
to produce a counterpart of the splendid spectacle.
Thu Liberal press Jb not less appreciative. The -Netty sens in the display
a proof of the noble work that England's race has done, and of the birth,
or at least the development, ot the
Imperial idea. It will give a new sense
of the vast resources, the industrial
activity, aud tho artistic culture of
these new Englands buyund thu seas,
Tht' Chronicle says the work of organizing this collection under one roof in
tho heart of London of articles from
every corner of the empire, waB done
willi a feelinu that all ao engaged were
toiling for the common good. The
Radical Echo also regards the opening
as an event nf national importance.
It will, it says, bring home to the.
crowds, as nothing has brought home
to them bofore, the greatness of that
colonial empire of which most English
men know so littlo, and show them
that if the union of the whole be onoe
placed beyond uncertainty a career
lies before us which may even ecli'pr~
our past lustre.—CniMidtan Gazette.

Maxwell's (Statement.
Qteat interest is manifested everywhere in the trial of Maxwell, accused
.of the murder of Preller-' The prison*
er was allowed to make a statement iu
court, which is aa follows:
"My full name ia Hugh M. Brooks.
I am twenty-five years old and" was
born in Hyde, Cheshire, England. I
'comuienoed to study law with Brown
at Stockpurt, near Hyde, in 1878, and
remained there four years. I nm a
lawyer by profession. I also studied
medicine and surgery at the collegiate
school at Manchester, but I am uot a
licensed physician. I first met Prellor
at the Northwestern Hotel at Liverpool, but did not get acquainted with
him until I met him on board tho
steamor Cephnolia. I also met Warren on the steamer. Mr. Pre!ler and
myself were both Englishmen coming
- to a strange land and our acquaintance
ripened into a warm friendship. Wo
told much about our, plana uud, purposes for tho future, and our acquaintance and .friendship I continued after
* our arrival in this country. We reached
Boston on February 3rd, and after
three or four daya Proller started on a
business trip. I had conversations and
correspondents with Preller about going to New- -Zealand. Wo agreed to
meet in St.' Louis and go there t'o-.
gether. I told him about my financial
condition, telling him iu a letter that
I had $100 all told. I treated Preller
several timn medically in Boston, and
by letter he acknowledged having received decided; benefit from the treatment. He knew that 1 never had
practiced medicine regularly. 1 nevor
used any deception with him in this
regard."
Witness then described the various
evonts prior to leaving Boston for
Canada, and about Ihb own and Poller's arrival m St. Louis and stopping
at the Southern Hotel. He said that
he had from $50 to $00 when he arrived here. He described how ho tried
to pawn some of his things before Preller came, Iub visits to Fernow's drug
store and hit conversation with Fer-
now, and hia. purchasing various articles of liim, among them chloroform
and carbolic acid, which in combination he used himself in treating a bad
tooth that troubled him. He states
that Preller arrived on tbe Friday prior
to Easter Sunday. He told how they
went together to sell hia magic lantern
aud slides, aiid various othor occurrences which took placo between Friday and Sunday, all of which uro familiar to nearly everybody. The
court then took a recess.
After the recess the examination of
the defendant was continued., "We,
Mr. Preller'antt I," he said, "mado
two tripe -beCVeen the Southern Hotol
and the Union--Depot, where we attempted to discover, the cause of the
detention of my trunk which contained
the lantern. We were told by a baggageman there that it was probably detained in Port Huron, Canada, by the
customs authorities. We visited Aloe,
the optician, in sin endeavor to ascertain if he would purchase the lantern
and slides when they should arrive.
From the tine that Mr. Preller arrived
in St. Louis doWn to Easter Sunday
we saw a great deal of each other. We
were, as former, witnesses have stated,
almost inseparable, I visited his room
several times, but when wu wore not
looking around1 the city or playing pool,
, hia spent most of the time in my room.
We played pool a good deal, and whoever lost. a game paid for it. Wo
played about even, ao the expenses
were about evenly divided. We drank
some, but'not much. Ho paid for
most of the drinks, Prellor was accustomed to call at my room early in
the morning and we would go down to
breakfast. together, nnd return to my
room and converse awhile, and then
go down to the rotunda. On Easter
Sunday, before I went to tho drug
store, he and I had a conversation
ubout the performance of the operation heretofore alluded to, and also, a
day or two bofore Sunday, Preller
described to me his symptoms, and I
coneluded that he was suffering from a
stricture, and that the best method of
treating him waa by passing a catheter.
I took my authorities on medicino and
read to Mr. Preller the dircctigns as to
the proper method of administering
chloroform, and refreshed my own
mind as to the precautions to bo used.
There are marginal notes, qn the pages
treating of the simplest and the xafi^t
methods of using tho dnu, but I made
these some twelve months beforo I loft
England... After this-oonveraation with
Mr. Preller I went, to the drug store
and purchased four ounces or clilnro-
iforin und*.quantity <»f aWi-bent cot-

poured out a fluid gramme of the liquid
on a piece uf lint, which I folded three
times, n'ncHhen walked to the bod and
held the lint about six inches from
the patient's face, so that tho;vapor from the chloroform might become mixed wiih tho air and produce
no violent effect. It all evaporated in
a fow minutes and I turned around to
get moro and found that tho bottle I
had placed on tho waehstand had fallen
into thu basin, and a largo portion of
tho contents Imd Unwed out, and not
enough was left to produce iui;esthu-Bia.
I.then went to Fornow's drug Btore to
get more, telling FernoW that 1 had
spilled what 1 had first bought. I
wanted four ounces, but lie had only
two, and I took that, 1 hjbjWned td
niy room. I placed abo^fil^rammo
of the fluid on the lint a tecond time,
nud again held it st^incnesfnun his
face. I continued thtt till I thought
uni'imaciouBness, orra'thtrinsensibility
to pain had been reached. I then took
uj) tho catheter and proceeded to insert
it. Mr. Prellar made a peculiar noise,
wincing as if ho felt pain. 1 camo to
the conclusion that I had not uduunis-j
tered sufiicient chloroform. I poured
out a gramme or a gramme and a half
of chloroform ou tho Hut, which I
again placed boforo Ihb face. Almost,
before I know it, Preller'a breathing
became very labored aud I at once suspended tho administration of ttie chloroform, for I knew that his condition
waa serious, I, seized a pair of my
surgeon's scissors and at once cut hia
shirt and undershirt from Iub body and
I tried all moans of resuscitation with
whioh I waa familiar. 1 slapped liim
with wet towels mi the nock and cheat,
dashed cold wator on his chest and attempted to restore-tho respiration by
moving hia arms up and down."
The witness proceeded with a voico
impressively huBky: "I continued
those efforts to revive my friend for
over half an hour, but it wus useless—
entirely useless. Shortly after my
friend ceased to breathe nnd his heart
stopped beating.; There was no broatn
on the mirror when I held it to hia
lips. Evon after I was satisfied that
he was dead I continued my efforts
with him. I did not leavo and call
assistance. All my efforts woro to restore him, because when chloroform
takes hold of liim and hu sinks, in a
fewBccondsa man isdead. I thought
the timo was better occupied in efforts
to restore hiin. I finally decided that
that he was dead and past all hope.
Thou I hardly know what to do. My
first impulse waa to notify tho nuthori-
ttea. Imagine my feelings, t did not
know that a man could make a statement in Ins own behalf, thinking tho
same rules prevailed hore as iu England.    I thought I would go away."
Tho prisoner then proceeded to tell
tho atory of putting the body in tho
trunk in a wild and dazed sort of way,
scarcely knowing what ho did, and
said that he was ao wrought tip that
he could give no connocted account of
his subsequent sayings and doings.
Ho tried to drown his terror in drink.
Thon he concluded that the only thing
to do was to get away. He took Preller'a money, §500 or $G00, purchased
a number of things, including a railway tickot to San Franciaco, placed
the paper reading, "So perish all traitors to the groat cauBe," in the trunk
with the dead man and shaved off his
moustache iu order to puzzle the authorities until after an autopsy, to gain
time, and also cut a gush on Preller's
breast with a acalpel, but could us3igu
no reason for it. Ho asserted firmly
that ho had no intention of harming
Prellor.
The rest of the testimony waa taken
up with his subsequent jonrneyitigs.

A fait- wind one day made ma think
it possiblo tu tako a hunt inland, but
to my disgust it died down after I had
proceeded two or threo miles, and my
fight back to camp with the mosquitoes I shall always remember ns one of
the salient points of my life. It seemed aa if there was an upwnrd rain of
insects from tho grass that became a
deluge over marshy tracts- and moro
than half the ground was marshy. Of
course not a sign bf any game was
seen, except a few old tracks; and tho
tracks of an animal aro about the only
part of it that could exist here in the
niosquitoe season, which lasts from thu
time the anow is half off the'ground
until tho first severe frost, a period of
threo or four months During thnt
time every living creature that can
leavo the valleys ascends the mountains, closely following the snow line,
and oven there peaco is not completely
attained, the exposure to the winds
being of fur more benefit than the
coolness due to the altitude, while the
mosquitoes are left undisputed masters
of the valleys, except fur a few straggling animals on their way from one
range of mountains lo the other.
Had theru beun any game, and had
I obtained a fair shot, I honestly doubt
if I could have secured it, owing to
these pests, not altogether on account
of their ravenous attacks upon my
faco, and especially the eyes, but for
the reason thnt they were ao absolutely
dense that it was impossible to see
clearly through the muss in taking aim.
When I got to camp I was thoroughly
exhaused with my incessant flight, and
completely out of breath, whieh 1 had
to regain aa best I could in a stilting
smoko from dry, resinous pi no knots.
