Malsqol PPbllc Meeting.
At a meoting of tbe settlors of Mat-
squi district, held on the 1st inst.,
Jno. Maclure in the chair, James
Baiss, secretary, it was resolved:
That the present road being impassable, and there being in this district some 12,000 acres taxable
lands upon which but a very small
outlay for roads has ever been made
(beyond private enterprise), and
none at all for three years past, the
members for this district be instructed to press upon the government
the necessity of an appropriation for
the following purposes, viz: (1) That
a wharf be built at Riverside; (2)
To open up the road gazetted in 18-
81 from Riverside to the 8. E. corner of sec. 33, township 16, of which
about two miles only will be new;
(3) That Riverside being the nearest shipping point for Upper Sumas
and the intermediate district, the
gazetted road be continued to the
Yale and Westminster wagon road,
or at least that the present trail be
made passable for wagons; (4) That
a branch road be made from the S.
E, corner of sec. 3, township 17, on
the township line between 16 and
17, east to the high land, a distance
of about 1J miles, to enable the residents on the east side of the prairie
to reaoh the gazetted road; (5) That
a petition for the construction of
the wharf and the main road from
Riverside to the Yale wagon road
be drawn up, and forwarded to the
settlers of Upper Sumas for signature. (The petition has already
been signed by 13 settlers of Mat-
squi and Sumas); (6) That the seoretary be instructed to forward a
copy of the above resolutions to the
British Columbian and Weekly
Times for publication. (Signed),
John Maclure, chairman; James
Baiss, secretary.
Lan-tley Public Meeting.
A meeting was held in tlm1'town
hall at Langley on the 2nd Feb. for
the purpose of petitioning the government to establish a telegraph and
money order office at that place.
There were present residents from
Langley and Langley Prairie. Wilson Towle was appointed chairman
and Jas. M. Drummond secretary.
The following resolutions were proposed and earned: Moved by John
Maxwell and seconded by J. \V.
Johnstone, that Langley, being a
place of some importance, a money
order offico is required for the accommodation of those who have to
send and receive money through the
mail, and that a petition be drawn
out and sent to the government
through Donald Ohisholm, M. P.,
the member representing the district,
asking that a money order office be
established at Langley, B. 0. Moved
by Henry Davis, seconded by Geo-
Rawlison, that a petition be also
sent to the government through Mr.
Cliisholni asking that the mail
which is at present carried to Wharnock, where it is exchanged with
the C.P.R. mail clerk, be carried
instead to Port Haney, that being
the more convenient place of the
two. Moved by Geo. Rawlison,
seconded by O. Welkie, that a petition be sent to the government asking that a telegraph line be built to
connect Langley with the wire on
the Yale and Westminster road.
The settlers agree to furnish the
poles and the II. B. Co. is willing
to operate the office free of charge,
which only requires the telegraph
oompany to furnish the wire, build
the line and keep it in repair, for
which it will receive the income of
the offioe. The distance to be built
would be six miles through open
country on a good wagon road,
Moved and seconded that a com*
mittee of five be appointed to can
viiss the districts to ascertain the
number of poles that the several
residents will supply. Moved by
John Maxwell, seconded by Geo.
Rawlison, that a copy of the minutes of the meeting be forwarded tothe Human Columbian in Westminster for publication. The meeting then adjourned.
James Cullun, Pool's Island, N. P.,
writes: "I have been watching the pro*
gross of Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil since
its introtluctlou to this place, am! with
muoh pleasure state that my anticipations of its success have boon fully realised, it having cured me of bronchitis

FKOClSEDmOS OF PAEUAMBNT.
Londyn, Feb. 10.—Contrary to expectations, the proceedings of parliament, on the opening day, were unu.-
tully tamo and commonplace. The
refeionces of the ptime minister to foreign affairs is considered on ail hands
to be extremely satisfactory. Ho assured the house of Lords that he entirely shared Prince Bismarck's belief
iu the maintenance of peace, and did
so on the samo ground of belief, viz:
that Russia had no idea of taking illegal
action respecting Bulgaria. Notice
was given by General Goldsworthy, a
Conservative member for Hammersmith, that he would call attention to
the state of Ireland, and move for
abolition of the office of Lord Lieutenant. This intimation was loudly
cheered by tbe opposition. Mr. Pyne
who stood siege in his family castle in
Ireland, and successfully evaded the
police, had a perfect ovation, r as did
also Mr. Gladstone. The latter is
evidently in oxcellent form, but not
disposed to waste the time of the house
on any antiquated formality of debate
on the address in reply to the speech
from the throne. In the house of
commons to-night Sir James Ferguson,
the under foreign secretary, sard, in
reply to an interrogation concerning
Englunds position towards the continental powers, that no agreement involving Great Britain! military responsibility had been made.     .
THE EXTRADITION TEEATV.
Washington, Feb. 10.—One need
not look for it to find the reason for
the postponement of the consideration
of the extradition treaty with Great
Britain until after the presidential
election, for tbat is what has been
done. The object was to take tlie so-
called dynamite provisions out of the
presidential discuesion from due regard
for the Irish vote. Politicians on both
sides will claim that it was their party
in the senate which secured the postponement, which many interpret ns
the final defeat, and they may shroud
themselves behind the mysteries of
executive session in case they should
be pressed into close quarters as to the
exact position which they have assumed. Meanwhile the administration has givon the public very clearly
to understand that if there is any dynamite provision so-called in the
treaty as it stands beforo the senate, it
was put in after it was communicated
to the senate by the executive. This
will place the responsibility opon the
senate committee on foreign relations,
to which the responsibility undoubtedly belongs. That committeo undoubtedly did amend the treaty by inserting
the provisions which the representatives in the senate of the Irish vote regarded as specially repugnant to them,
and it is because of their attempted
amendments that the resolution to
postpone was carried. The action of
the senate in taking such a summary measure with a treaty in the
absence of the chairman of the committee which reported it, Mr. Sherman
is, of course, very unusual, but the occasion itself wss unusual. The spectre
of their Irish votes was assuming daily
momentous proportions, and it was
deemed expedient by politicians, among
who none is shrewder or moro astute
than Stewart, of Nevada, upon whose
motion iho postponement was carriod,
that this spqetre should bo laid. It
said that the administration had the
British treaty very much at heart. It,
of course, favored tbo adoption of a
treaty which it had sent to llio senate,
but it is vory evident it did not approve tho amendment made by the
committee on foreign affairs, otherwise
tho public would not have been furnished in uu authorita'ive wny by tho
administration with a repudiation of
the amendments inserted by the senate committee,

ANOTHER MONOPOLY.
BosTON,Feb.ll.—Commercial circles
are much agitated over the report that
the large flouring mills of the country
are about to form a gigantic trust to
keep up prices. The great mills of
Minneapolis, Detroit and the Northwest are the prime movers in the
scheme. A well-kuown lawyer in Boston has been retained as attorney to
represent the eastern interest. The
idea is to lay out wheat fields of an
immense territory and send out buy
ers. Another plan is to keep out all
outsiders by resorting to a system of
discouragement.
THE    OFIUM   SMUGGLERS   DISCOVERED,
San Fkancisco, Feb. 11.—The first
actual exposure of the great opium
ring in this city, which has made millions of dollan, was made this morning. It appears that Attorney-General
Garland now has the facts in his possession in Washington, and it is undecided whether to proceed criminally or
civilly, as the parties connected with
the ring are prominent and influential
men of this city. It is said that tbe
combination consists of John T. Fog-
arty, deputy surveyor of the port of
Snn Francisco, ex-Sheriff Connolly, ex-
Assessor Louis F. Halz and Revenue
Inspector Whally, all of whom are
worth half a million or more. In May
last the combination purchased from
Millionaire Morrow, who was acquitted
of embracery lust Saturday, his yacht
Halcyon, through Ihe agency of Alf.
Wilson, of Victoria,-B. 0. Revenue'
officers learned after a time that the
yacht used to stop steamers on their
arrival from China, and once on her
return to her moorings she waa seen to
discharge a cargo of Chinese good*
Smaller vessels are known to have gone
up tu Long Bridge and there smuggle
opium and other articles which the
Halcyon had brought in. During Msy
of last year Deputy Fugnrty, in his
capacity as inspector, waa made to assist at the seizure of opium valued at
(52,000. He waa brought before the
ring and accused of imparting the secret, nnd it is stated that his life was
not only threatened but actually imperilled. He explained how his fellow
inspector had learned of the expected
opium and he waa thereupon released
with a severe reprimand and a oom-
mand not to let it occur again.
THIS AFTKBXOOK'S DESPATCHES.

council of federated trades, which concluded its meeting at nearly 3 o'olock

A JUST SENTENCE.
Boston, Feb. 11.—The jury In the
case of Mrs. Sarah J. Robinson, the
aliened wholesale poisoner, this morning rendered a verdict of guilty of
murder in the fint degree. In thia
trial she was charged with the murder of Arthur Freeman, her nephew.
Mra. Robinson has previously been
tried on the charge of killing her ion
and daughter, but the jury disagreed.
The incentive to all the crimes with

Snmrdu Evening, Feb. II, IS8S.
We publish to-day reports of public meetings held at Langley and
Matsqui to consider the need uf
public improvements in these localities. Yesterday wc published a
report of a similar meeting held at
Mount Lehman, mid on Tliursday
we made public tlie result of negotiations carried on by the municipal
council of Richmond with a view tn
constructing costly roads nnd bridges
in that municipality. There are
several places yet to be heard from,
und when all tbo petitions nnd requests have been sent in the govornment will lind it very easy to get
rid of the remaining half of the million dollar lonn. There is probably
nothing unreasonable in any of the
requests made by the various settlements. There is not a settlement
in this wholo district wliere tho
roads are what they should be. The
nature of the soil is such as to make
road-building extremely expensive,
and unless a road is either gravelled
or laid with timber it is almost certain to become very bad in the rainy
season. It is very certain that the
resources of the province will not
be sufficient to meet even the reasonable wishes of all tbe settlers, but we
think the holding of public meetings
and the discussion of these questions
isa wise proceeding. It is sometimes found extremely difficult to
locate a rond so that it will do the
most good to the greatest number.
Where the country is heavily timbered one is often perplexed to
know where tho best road-bed may
be found; and sometimes settlements
change so rapidly that what may bo
a central highway to-day will not bo
central at all within n ,ycar. It
will probably bo found generally
that tho residents in any locality
are best able to determine where a
road will be most useful, and if all
communities would agree on this
point the government rondmakers
would often be relieved of serious
embarrassment. The discussion has,
fortunately, begun early in the
year. We need not again repeut
what has been so often said respect-
ing the importance of beginning
road work early in the season. No
one who has bad any experience
needs to be told that money expended on roads late in summer is almost, if not altogether, useless.
On the Ilth of January our contemporary of the Gnarditm announced that the fate of the provincial
government had been sealed, " Tbey
know," said the organ, " that with
the meeting of the house tlieir existence comes to a close;" and then it
adds: " We have beside us nt this
moment the names of fourteen members (a majority) who nro pledged to
vote against the government. Although we mention fourteen us
those we know about, they are not
likely to be all that will help to
overthrow the government." The
house has'been in session now over a
week, but wliere nre the fourteen J
During the consideration of tiie address in reply to the speech from
the throne a lot of amendments were
proposed by the opposition, and in
every instance they were voted
down by large majorities. A few
days ago the editor of tbe organ
hastened W Victoria. We are' not
sure whether he had been summoned
jy the Opposition for tho purpose of
producing his men, but possibly this
may have been the object of his
errand. Having reached the capital
the opposition tried another amend
ment, hoping, perhaps, that the
presence of our cotemporary would
accomplish the purpose, which, apparently, is the chief and only business in which they take an interest
—the defeat of the government.
But tho charm did not work at nil.
The promised 14 turned out to be
the samo old 7, and tho government
had a majority of 10. It w

trick—whistling to keep his courage
up. The 1*1 are nowhere to be
found, and we are afraid the session will end as it began with a clear
government majority of 10, not
counting tho speaker. But the fer
tile brain of our cotemporary will
not rest under the unwelcome fact.
He will be telling his readers presently that the government is doomed
all the same. If the 14 happened
to be missing when he lifted his
thumb, it's no matter—thoy will be
available presently, and then! Ah!

tures, and how truly delightful it

Levcl-Hcaded Bishop.
At Baltimore Bishop Irulmul said:—
"I prosariiQ I am to talk to mon of
toil—men audi women who havo to
labor hard to support their families.
There is much Baid to-day ubout tho
laboring classes, about improving their
condition nnd giving thorn fair play.
If I have devoted my life to the causa
of total abstinence it has boen in great
measure duo to my deep sympathy
wiih the laboring classes. Vou toil nil
the yonr and havo littlo at the end
saved. A dollar ia a large sum in the
hands of a laborer when wo consider
what it cost him. A man's strength
can bo measured by days and year***.
The laboring classes do not appreciate
how much a dollar costs them. With
the dollar you can clothe yourself; you
can save something and get interest,
which is something given to you. As
long as you hnvo no home you aro the
slave of men; but ns soon as you get
a foot of ground you can eay, 'This is
mine,' and be lifted up. Give your
wifo one dollar more a week, and Eee
how much farther she will make it go.
You want to be provided for the future, to care for your children who aro
growing up. Have a little ahead for
your children and yourself ns you
grow older.
"I will tell you how you can envo
without any sacrifice, but, on tho contrary, saving yourselves from evils, 1
wouldn't tell you to save by stinting
yourselves in food and drink nnd clothing; but 1 would hnvo you saya by
keeping nway from tho grog-shops as
from the mouth of hell. How much
money goes into tlio saloon from the
laboring classes I The saloons are more
numerous in the neighborhoods inhabited hy the poorer classes. I could half
forgive the saloons—tliftugh 1 could
never do it, 1 believe—if they would
attack the capitalists and railroad magnates; but they uttick tho poorer
abuses and Jill the jails and almshouses.
The saloons are nut found on the
avenues of the rich, but' they nro near
the fiicturiea, etc. The saloons give
you alcohol and impure alcohol at
that They give you stuff made up of
poisonous ingredients, whose very purpose is to create thirst nnd poison tho
stomach. The man in normal health
heeds no liquor of any kind, You seo
the poi■qri pouring out of the man who
drinks. You lose absolutely nothing
by giving up liquor. How much do
you gain 1 If it did not pay, saloonkeepers wouldn't sell liquor, You go
out and work, and they sit back in tho
cool and hnve an easy timo. You
might as well bo their slaves. Wo
never feel haw much wc are giving tlie
saloon keeper. Dimes follow dimes and
quarters follow quarters, und at thu
end of tho week a largo sum has been
spent. Until tho laboring classes take
tliu pledge and keep it all tbe speeches
uiude for them and efforts to lift them
up are in vain.
u How is it possible tlmt our people
du not see the. consequences of drink,
and that in this free country thoy are
alave-t ? Tho landlords in the saldims
are more heartless than Irish landlords ever have been or will he. lt is
time that tho laboring men should declare themselves free nun and save
their money. Poverty itself does not
prevent happiness; but if the poor
man drinks, hia temper is soured, his
wife complains, and his children nre
led into vices, are taken up by tlio
police nnd aunt torofoiin.it ■ri-.-s. Out
sido of hell thero is nothing so hideous
hs a home where tho father and mother
both drink. The drinking man is
most cruel. Drink is tbo destroying
augel of the peace of tho family. We
must at least protect the women and
children. Woman's enemy is liquor.
It is horrible for women to touch it in
any form. Women aro too lenient
about their husbands and brothers
drinking a little. My advice to you is;
give advice at once, thou consult the
priest, and as a lust resort go to work
with a broomstick. Tho brewers nnd
the distillers are tho real guilty.parties.
If 1 could only keep our people from
the saloon what n race they would be !
The devil doesn't put up str.mgo names
over tho doors. No, we see there tho
noblest names in Ireland's history, I
would have no men keeping saloons,
but 1 would save Catholics from keeping saloons fur tho damnation of our
fellow men. Our record hns not beon
honorable in this respect. It is a disgrace to our religion. That liquor
tmflic ha* almost made tho church
powerless. Whnt force hns the Oath-
olid church when in a oity whon its
members sell liquor, and sell it
on Sunday too ?
**"* Let us go on record hereafler a? a
sober people. Tho liquor truflic has
allied us with lawbreakers. Drunkenness is a mortal sin, and tbo drunkard
is a bad man in evory way. Cursing,
infidelity nnd immortality are found
about the saloon. Our people aro
being robbed away from us. Hero is
Sunday, and tho Catholic saloo:i-keep-
'ers sell liquor and think it is all right
if they ront a pew. They think they
aro the pillars of the church; but they
are mistaken if they think thoy can
buy the silence of the church. Thoy
control the politics of the country.
You will find them at evory democratic caucus. The police walk up and
down past the saloons, take a little
drink, and then nro ready to go into
court and sny they didn't see tho saloon open. They nre conveniently
Mind. You uro so simple as to go und
voto for personal liberty. Tlie poor
man ought to have liberty to save his
monoy. The snloon-keepors have saloons even on tho rond to the graveyard. We've chained them somewhat
out west. Out nt Minnesota Catholics
havo the honor of having voted (or
high liconse. Elsewhere, uufoitun-
atoly, things nre quite different I
hope this limitation of the liquor traffic may spread, and that everyCatholio
may bo found in tho cause of tompor*
atice."

Cherry Peotoral, promptly administered, affords speedy relief and oure.
Aa a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during tho past winter, with much satisfaction,' Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation tlie most efficacious) of all tho medicines whieh have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Homo for Little

Peotoral. This preparation relievos Uie.

oures the complaint,—David G. Stacks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
in my family for many years, and
have found lt especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
alt irritation, pi-events inflammation from
extending to tho lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. II. Wellington, PlainvlTlo.Mioh.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Cronp and Whooping Cough, as Ayer'a

Whooping Cough I ever saw.—Jane

A Dastardly Deed,
Some cowardly miscreant set out
poisoned meat in various parts of the
city last night and this morning some
fifteen or twenty dogs were found dead
or dying from the effects of having
eaten it. Among tlio doga destroyed were several very valuable
animals whose owners are prepared to
give a handsome reward for in fori
tion that will lead to the arrest uf the
cowardly blackguards who perpetrated
the outia^e. The penalty for such an
offense is very severe, ond should the
offenders be discovered tho full fornu
of tlio law will be set against ihem.

The Provincial Legislature.
We learn from tho Times that the
house adjourned yesterday until Monday to give the speaker the opportunity vi consulting authorities respecting
a vory nice point of order. Somo
time ago Mr. Humphreys placed on
the notice paper certain resolutions relating to the annexation utterances
said to havo eome from Hon. Mr.
Dunsmuir while in Portland. Tho
government required Mr. Humphreys
to name a time when he would bring
those resolutions forward. This Mr.
Humphreys refused to do, stating that
he would bring them up as soon
as possible. The speakor wos
asked whether the resolutions, being
of an extraordinary nature, could bo
deferred from time to timo; and as the
point was entirely now, he asked time
to consider it.
The Sc-tv found landers.
Col. McGregor and tho delegation
of Newfoundland fishermen returned
yesterday from their trip up tho coa&t
in search of a suitable location on
which to establish tho proposed colony
of Newfoundlanders Tho party explored tlio entire coast uf Huwe Sound
and wore fortunate enough tu find
several locations suitable for the purpose desired. A very fino spot was
found about threo miles above point
Atkinson, and this was immediately
selected for the location of part of the
colony. Another good place, a few
miles further up the sound, was chosen
On which tho rest of the colony will bo
established. The Newfoundlanders
are fully satisfied with both location
and prospects and will advise their
friends of the facts. Fishing will be
o< mmenced at once, and the party are
now in Vancouver making final arrangements towards that end. A Vancouver firm has offered to purchase, at
highest market pr.ces, all the fish they
can catch. The colony makes a start
with very bright prospects ahead,
whicli wo hopo will be fully realized
A Wonderful Newspaper.
Our enterprising cotemporary, the
Guardian, accomplished a font last
night hitherto unknown in tho annuls
of journalism. It was able, through
its wonderful foresight (the same used
in forecasting '"Foreign affairs") to
lay before the Hyack Fire company,
and the general public, a full aud minute account of the Hyack ball three
full hours beforo the fiddles were
tuned for the opening dance. Such
ability and enterprise should not go
unrewarded, but it is to bo regretted
the article appeared so soon, ns several
of the Victoria Oddfellowa, who intended being present at iho ball, aftor
reading the paragraph in question
imagined they must have slept a whole
day and were thus deprived of the
pleasure anticipated. Tito same issue
contains nn account uf the dedication
of the Oddfellows' hall, an event fixed
for some time iu April. Our cotemporary has certainly a wonderful faculty for forecasting European events,
but outside of that particular line we
are afraid bis " wisiou's limited," aud
we have not lonrned he is in possession of a pair of those '* double million
magnifying gla&Bei " spoken of by Mr.
Samuel Weiler.

The Hyarh Hull.
Tlie red jackets of the Hyack fire
company never shone with greater
brilliancy or in a moro gay or happy
throng than thoy did lust night on the
occasion of their annual ball. As predicted in these columns some weeks
ago,tho ball waa the grandest and most
successful ever given by the Hyacks;
and saying this means a grent deal for
they have nover beon known to make
a failure. Herring's Opera Houso was
most elaborately gotten up for the occasion. Decorations in profusion ornamented the building, alt of whioh
were arranged with proper observance
to the rules of good taste. Among
the visitors present wore a numbor of
the Vancouver firo brigade, who, with
their wives and sweethearts, came
over to enjoy tho hospitality of their
Westminster comrades. Dancing commenced shortly after 0 o'clock, and tl e
light fantastic was indulged in with
much enthusiasm until midnight,when
supper was served. The collation,
which was prepaed by Mrs. Eickhoff,
was well worthy tho occasion and
everyone seemed to enjoy it thoroughly. When the good things had been
disposed of the programme was resumed, and the deck had struck thtee*bc-
fore the signal fur dispersing ffiiB

Davios' exertions iu behalf of the order during the paBt year were rewarded by his being reelected to the chair,

question, asked Mr. Martin if the new
government would assuredly build the
road. He replied in positive terms
that not the slightest apprehension
need be felt on that score as the government would build the road or die
in tlie attempt.
"But how are you going to get over
the legal difficulties?"
" Wo are Bimply going to build tbo
road,"
''How about crossing Dominion

' 'We are goiug to cross thorn."
"How about the C.P.R. track in

"But did not Mr, Norquay fail in
these things?"
Mr. Martin laughed, nud said,
"People may talk about Mr. Norquay
having tried tu build the road, but 1
am as firmly convinced as 1 am of anything that Norquay did not try to
build (he road, I do not think there
ia any diffleulty if people try. The
difficulty was that no genuine effort
was mado."
"And tho money?"
" Don't fret about the money. It
will bo forthcoming when wanted."
"But your nets will ba disallowed!"

Halifax, Feb. 4.—Capt Winter
tells a thrilling story ot the loss uf ihe
Gloucester fichoonerTinanco, and the
hero o Micrilico uf two of her crew.
The Finance 'started for Sbolburne,
but when off Blanch Island she struck
on a lodge, tearing the rudder off and
and pounding tho hull to pieces. Tt
wns necessary to get a line to shore in
order to save thu crow. Tho chances
were 100 to one thnt the man who
took the line would lose his life. De-
spite this, Fred Bryant, of Ma ino,
tonk tlio rope, tied it about his body,
and set out for tho shore. He was
tos-jod about by the waves nnd hurled
back by the receding c-irr.'ut. HU
comrades then tried to pull him on
board, but, bruised, bun < imbed and
exhausted, tho bravo fellow was unable to help himself, and he was swept
by an undertow back under tbe vesiel.
The rope slipped over his body, caught
his boots, pulled them off, uud ho was
drowned. Then Georgo Johnson took
tho rope, but only to be pulled back,
half perished and exhausted. James
McKiuer thou mnde the trial. He
was beaten back again nml again, but bo^
ing evidently a nun of wonderful cur-
age nnd endurance, he kept on. His
bouts wero torn off, his oilskin was
stripped frum him, but he kept un,
and finally reached the island, biro-
footed ana almost perished with cold.
Notwithstanding his exertions in getting to land tlie bravo fellow dm*/g»d
tho ropo uut of the sea, braced his
bare feet against the icy shoro, and
held tho line tight till another one of
the crew got to land on it, The res'
woro brought over Bafoly, but MfiKin-
or died from over-exertion.
