English and Colonial Union.
Judge Gray (according to the
Colonist) says: " The United States
and Oanada have exactly the same
productions—wo do not want theirs
nor they ours, for each has enough
and excess to export." In agreeing
with this statement I would like to
ask the aforesaid gentleman to explain how it is that everything in
the present national policy of this
colony tends toward the destroying
of all production and the building
up of a shoddy form of manufacture
at the expense and to the detriment
of the producing elements of the
country) He also goes on to say:
"England holds out to Oanada a
market for her flour, oattle, horses,
etc. There seems to be a drift on
the part of the mother oountry to
discriminate in favor of Oanada and
Australia. Upon Canada rests the
responsibility of notion." If the
English market has in a groat measure been the moans of m.kiig the
United States what they are, through
taking the produce of the producer,
why should the U, S. government
impose a tax on imported British
manufactures) One would think
live and let live, md the principle
that one good turn deserves another,
ought rather to govern their actions.
The only honest and true answer to
this query is the fact that the people
of the United States are in every
sense of the word foreigners, and,
consequently, our commercial ene
mies, ranking with Russia and Germany, and naturally the question
arises, why does England buy her
supplies from a foreign nation with
whom at any time she may be at
war, rather than from her own col
onics) The reasons are various,
and it will do no harm to enquire
into them a little:—(1) Forcing artificial Canadian manufactures. (2)
The protective tariff framed in the
interests of Canadian manufacturers,
and to the exclusion and detriment
of all producing enterprise. (3) The
many evils that are born aud bred
of the above greater evill* to wit,
monopolies, scanty railroad conruiu-
cation, jobbery and corruption, such
as squandering public moneys, the
wresting of laws from their original
sense in the interest of powerful
bodies, and a host of minor ones, all
tending to confuse and enthral the
lonj}-suffering producer. All wealth
comes from the earth, and as Judge
Gray tells us, Canada's wealth lies
in her produce. Why should not
she try to oust the Americans from
the British markets, unless she
wishes to join the American union
and be recognized only as a petty
state? But the late commercial
union agitation shows, I think,
pretty clearly that it is not Canada's
intention to desert the old flag.
Presuming, then, that we intend to
remain British (for no one supposes
we could hold up our heads as separate power), why not seriously turn
public attention to the solution of
the difficulty,which simply is "British and colonial union i" How is
this to be brought about) Not by
protective tariffs against the old
country; not by protecting shoddy
manufactured goods, at the expense
of English manufactures that are
really good, and through perfect appliances consequently cheaper; not
by making us unfortunate farmers
pay through the rose for all we eat,
drink and wear. Protoct against
the states as much and us long as
you like, but do no*, let us protect
ngainst ourselves. I hove heard of
fleas living off a dog, but I never
heard of fleas living off each other.
In one instance only I have heard
of cats living on cats, and that was
in Kilkenny. Probably the Canadian people wish to live off eaoh
other till nothing is left but their
tails—pardon me, I meant their lawyers and manufacturers, Increased
production is pointed out in England as the great oause of distress,
but it is rather the increase of competitive manufactories and the consequent decrease in the markets for
goods. If England worked her full
power of machinery she could supply
'the whole world with every kind of
hard und soft ware three times ovor.
.How easily; then, could some amio-
nlilc arrangement bo arrived at by
which England took only colonial
food supplies nnd paid for the samo
in manufactured goods of a superior
quality. What a boon such an arrangement would be to the producer,
and how soon this wild country
would become populated. England,
then, in times of war, would not
hnve her supplies stopped, and in
times of ponce there would be plenty
of work for all; furthermore, she
would have the supreme pleasuro of
benefitting her own children. At
tho present time the colonies only
Bupply 19 per cent., while the
United Slates supply 50 per cent.,
or nearly one-half of the whole food
supply of the United Kingdom. The
United Kingdom haa a population of
about 37,000,000. The home-grown
•upply of breudstuffs is estimated at
about 175,000,000 bushels, which
would, allowing about one-fourth for
seed and other purposes, leave ssy
130,000,000, which would approximately feed about one-half of the whole
population. The Canadian government
congratulated the country that this
year, between the imports and exports
of Canada and the U. S. A., there was
a difference in favor of tbe former of
4,500,000. Ou the other hand I
chanced to see in another paper thi.
statement which received no comment
and was passed by as a matter of no
importance, that 38 par oent ol tha
whole of the export, of the U. S. A.
went to swell the food supply of the
United Kingdom. No wondtr, then,
that the people of the United States
are satisfied with mattera a, they are
at present between ua, giving us a few
paltry millions while they quietly
steal under our very noses the supplying of the old country with breadituffs,
etc. Verily we are a foolish and long-
suffering people. Let us now see a
few of the benefits that the protective
tariff gives to the manufacturer, snd
how it applies to the consumer ind the
producer. Take sugar for instance.
How is it that sugar is cheaper in London than in Weatminster! And yet
the latter ia hundreds of miles nearer
tbe producing centre than the former.
"Granulated sugar was quoted in
Montreal a few months back at li|
and 6** cents per lb., the prioe' agreed
upon between the combined grocers
and refiners"—(this form of combination is one of the evils 1 spoke about
i'ust now). "There are two grocers,
owever, who ore not in thia precious
combine. They are fined by the refiners for staying out of the combine so
heavily in the shape of an addition to
the regular price of sugar that they
were driven to import in spite of the
hesvy " protective " duties whioh enabled the refiners to play the tyrant.
One of these firms imported granulated
BUitar, on which it was forced to pay a
a duty of £2.89 per lb, and yet this
importer says he will reap a profit on
tho transaction. It is to be presumed
he will be compelled to sell this sugar
at the ordinary price in Montreal,
namely, 6 j to 6| cents per lb. Deduct
the amount of tbe duty, 2.9-10 els. per
lb, from the above prioea, and it
would appear that if there were no
protective duties on sugar the prioe in
Montreal to-day would be a fraction
leu than.4 cents per lb." (Vide colonies and India.) The same ovila apply to every other branoh of manufacture. I would ask the people to, look
•round-, nd see who are the prosperon.
men in the country. Are they the
producers) I trow not. I am told
more than hnlf of them are mortgaged
to those very manufacturers, or the
legal fraternity that flourishes side by
aide by them. In conclusion, if there
were half the spirit in the people of
thia Dominion that existed in England
in Cromwell's day such a state of
things would not last; the producers,
joined hand in hand, province by province, shoulder to shoulder, would
exert such an influence that free trade
with England and a union of the
mother country with . tho colonies
would be found to be the true solution

Berlin, March 8.—The emperor is
dead.
FroidrichLudwigWilhelm, emperorof
Germany, is the secondaonof Fredrick-
William HI., and wu born 82nd
March, 1797. Be received a careful
education, joined the army at an early
are, and was engaged in the campaigns
of 1813-1814 against France. On the
accession of his elder brother, Frederick-William IV., to the throne
in 1840, William became governor of
Pomerania, and afterwards sst in the
Prussian diet, and vigorously supported the absolutist party. In consequence, he was so much disliked by the
people, that on the outbreak of the
revolution in 1848 he had to flee to
England; though he returned some
months after, and was elected to the
national assembly, However, from
this time he interfered little in the
quarrels between the constitutionalists
and absolutists, though he gladly accepted the command of the troops despatched to put down the rising in
Baden; and in October, 1857, the king
having become incapacitated for business, William was commissioned to oot
as regent, a commission renewed from
time to time till his permanent installation iu 1858. At this time he wu
very popular in Prussia, owing to his
supposed opposition to some of the obnoxious measures of the king's ministers, and to his vigorous advocacy of
conjoint action with Britain and'
France in the war of 1854; and his
election as regent wss consequently
opposed by the aristocratic and pietis-
tic parties, who were, on his elevation,
dismissed from power, and a more liberal ministry formed. On January 8,
1861, William ascended the throne;
and on the occasion of his coronatton
at Konigsberg, on 18th October following, he himself put the crown on
hia head, declaring that he ' ruled by
the favor of God, and of no one else.'
The Franco-Prussian war, which resulted ao victoriously for the German
arms, originated in the French emperor's jealousy of the greatly increased
power of Prussia, through the successful issue nf the war with Denmark in
1864, and with Austria in 1866. The
German confederation waa thereby annulled and the North German Confederation, established under the supremacy of tbe king of Pruaaia, to whose
territories were further annexed Han-
over, Hesse-Cussell, Nasuu, Frankfurt and other provinces. Tne re-
eitablishment of the German empire
was proclaimed on Jan 1, 1871. It
was founded on treaties concluded between the North German Confederation and the grand duchies of Baden
and Hesse, the kingdom of Bavaria
and the kingdom of Wurtemburg,
King William was proclaimed emperor
of Germany at Versailles, on
January 18th, 1871, and. . the
treaty waa ratified on Jan. 29th, 1871,
William married Uth June, 1889,
Maria Louise, of Saxe-W.imar, hy
whom he has issue Freidrich-Wilhelm,
the Crown Prince of Prussia, who married Victoria, the princess-royal of
England, and has issue; and Louisa,
the present grand-duchess of Baden.
THE EMPEROR'S   j,ast MOMENTS.
Berlin, Mar. 8.—At 18:35 p. m.
all the family of the dying emperor,
except the crown prince, were in the
room adjoining that of the invalid,
At that hour the chaplain administered
the laat sacrament to the emperor.
Before noon the kaiser hsd occasional
periods of delirium and recognised no
one. Bismarck left the palace at 8:30
p.m. and visited the reichstag.
BUSINESS SUSFENDID,
Berlin, March 8.—Basinets in the

Mr. Thomas Ballard, Syracuse, N. Y.,

VH'< §ailj> § ritish Columbian
Thursday Cvenlag, Mareli fl. i
The death of the Emperor of
Germany this inorning will surprise
no ono. Horn on the --nil of
Maroh, 1707, tho German emperor
has outlived nearly all his cotem-
poraries, and for many years ho has
been walking ou the brink of tho
grave. The event will, nevertheless, greatly disturb European affairs,
although it may not precipitator, the
military crisis which has beon so
long threatened. Stocks and bonds
will vibrate as the magnetic needle
vibrates in tho presence of disturbing elements. The excitemont will
bo greatly intensified because of the
critical state of the crown prince's
health. The crown prince is now 86
years of age, and if his physical condition was such as would enable him
to assume the reins of government,
the affairs of the nation would proceed without disturbance. But ho
may follow his father any moment,
ami in that event the throne would
go to Prince William, who is only
29, and has nat had the experience
necessary to qualify him for so responsible a position. The Emperor
William I wos a grand old man, and
leaves behind him a memory which
will never die.
Negotiations are now in progress
at Ottawa with a view to having
the monopoly policy removed from
Manitoba and the Northwest. It is
said that all the representatives
from the Northwest and Manitoba
are using their influence for this
purpose, and it is reported that Sir
John Macdonald has given them to
understand that he is prepared to
make substantial concessions in that
direction. An Ottawa despatch
says that iu the event of the veto
policy being removed in Manitoba,
the 0. P. R. Co. proposes to sell its
Emerson branch to tlie Manitoba
government. It is to be hoped
these negotiations will be successful.
If the polioy of vetoing railway
charters.to the soutli is abandoned
in Manitoba, it will, of course, be
abandoned in this province also.
But if the monopoly clause of the
C. P. B. charter is given up iu the
territories wost of Manitoba, there
is very little doubt, that the railway
company will demand compensation.
If the demand is not excessive, we
believe it ought to be entertained,
for free competition would umloubt
edly stimulate materially the settlement and development of thnt
region.
It will be seen in another column
that the government has introduced
into the legislature a new license act
which proposes a sweeping change
in the regulations now prevailing.
This act, if carried into forco, will
be far more acceptable to those who
are anxious for temperance reform
than the late Sunday closing by-law
could possibly have been. It has
the advantage of universal application so far as this province is concerned, and will remove somo of the
objections, which were urged ngainst
the local measure. In addition to
its being a Sunday closing law, it
limits the number of licenses to be
granted in any municipality, which
the other did not. This limitation
is on tho same principle as
that of the Ontario Crooks
Act, whioh is believed to be ono of
the best license acts existing anywhere in Oanada, It is lo bo hoped
the bill may go through tbe house
without being pared down in such a
way as to destroy its usefulness. It
must bo apparent to every one that
the province is greatly in need of a
revised license law that will bring
us somewhere near the position attained by thu other provinces of the
Dominion, and we earnestly hope
this measure will, bo of that kind.
The federal estimates, as far as
they relate to British Columbia, are
very disappointing. The appropriations for harbors and rivers are as
follows: For Victoria harbor, .$12,-
500; removing rock at Nanaimo harbor, 110,000; Columbia river, s*S10,-
000; Oowiehsn river, ((10,000; Fraser
river, $10,000; Nicomekl and Serpentine rivers, $1,500; Sumas river,
$500; general repairs and improvements, $2,000, We hope tho government does not propose to continue the policy of carrying forward
the Frager river improvements by
annual driblets. It is a policy
which -will neither satisfy the conditions now existing or result in
economy to the treasury. The demands are now more urgent than
they ever have been in view of the
probability that very soon we shall
have ships coming up to this oity for
cargoes of lumber, and for other purposes. There are at the present
moment certain questions of the
greatest importance to this eity and
district depending upon tho improvements on the Fraser, and if these
improvements are not carriod forward this season our interests may
be dsffli^beyond recovery. It is
to be hoped the government mny be
prevailed upon to appropriate a sum
sufficient for the completion of tbe
works thia season. Probably $100-
000 would be ample, and its investment in such a work would be one
of tjaftatf b««t poaiible investments
the governptpnt.could m»he.

Did you evetepon-1 a day at'a beehive? In alariMS nii :*•>• wlijchI visiter]
not long ago I rlisi!' vr ferl ttaliani'Syjirrii,
i.ii-l Holy Land Irr r a I; i-'uvj in harrrroiiy
with their Ameri : n ''iirlhersandsisirris.
The Italians are a 'i.a ilo nitre, hut not as
nsy as tho Holy I rind hoes, though the
Intt.'r hnvo a bad  name for docility,
■r'iiis! easily irritated.   Tho Syrians wear
,Kiiiiisido  whiskers  down their sides.
They are indetotiimblo workers.
Tlio bee-hive is a email two-story
house. The first floor is the brood cham-
lieis, and this tho bees fill first with
stores for th? winter. It is also the
oyal residence of the tyiocn. The upper
story is for tho surplus honey, and tho
lures fill this for tho market Honey is
the noctar of the tl'wer.r.. The bees do
not make It. They simply gather it and
place it in the store-house.
The bee-hive is n republic in ono sense,
hut rather a consriiutional monnrchy
like Kin/land. Although there is an imperial queen to whom great respect is
shown, she does not nppear to possess
much governing .authority, and resigns
the throne as soon as her functions cense.
Uncovering a hivo 1 watched tho bees at
tlieir labor. The honey-comb of cells
was covered with tire workers. (Jno
wouid stop at a cell a ino - cut and then
go irlonr.*, then another would givo a bite
or two, and all seemed rather careless of
regular work; but still thero inuBt bo a
egiilar plan of labor and a directing
orcc.
i-'entinela are constantly, on duty at the
loor, but no particular heirs seem to have
beeu assigned the task. The wax-workers or comb-builders seem to change off
indifferently with the honey-gatherers
and the nursing bees that guard the cells
where the young ones aro hatching. The
queen alone appears to havo a regular
'task. .She moves about the comb depositing eggs in the cells. .She thus places
from two to three thousand eggs a day.
A colony of the insects in good form is
composed of about thirty thousand bees,
and their average life being, only from
forty to sixty days there must bo a constant addition to keep' up the population.
A qucon reigns from ono to three
years. The egg's seem all alike and aro
made to produce workers, or drones, or
queens, ns the colony nominates. Tlio
workers, are impelled females, tho
drones are tho males,- while tho queens
are tho perfected females and each has
a cell of her own. When a queen' is
wanted tho bees select a cell and cut
away tho comb on both sides ol it, ond
build a balloon-shaped cell about nu inch
long. This is carefully guarded ond tho
larva is fed tire richest food usually the
pollen of fiowers mixed with honey and
witter. Some of the cells aro used as
magazines in whicli to storo the queen's
loor'I. The food of tho young queen is
culled royal jolly.
The queon cells are nover disturbed
by tho old queen during tho swarming
ST-ason; that is, during the timo when
the bees have concluded that the swarm
is getting to largo and-it is time to divide
thu family. As the new queen is nbout
to be bom, the old queen generally organizes a new colony, and scouts having
been sent out by hor to find a good location, iihe departs with her followers and
(utiles to the new country.    In the
ligh councils of beedom, if it is concluded
that the colony can again be divided, the
first new queen takes oil' another colony.
If not, then her first Bet is to sting the
cells of the other queens and put them
death.
If two queens are hatched at tho
same timo a ring is formed and thoy
tight to the death of one of thorn and. the
other reigns.
,. The marriage ceremony of a now
queen ia performed in mid-air, and nfler
tlie wedding the drone husband goes
oil and dies, and the queen lives a happy
widow the rest of her life.
The ww qneon is full of)"hil*iii*»s.
'<bt wants every .thing in perfect order
bout the hive. She mil not keep the
over winter, but commands the
rorkers to carry them out to die. Tho
oung bees that are hatched imperfect
re immediately dragged ont and put to
leath. Ii a foreign substance is too
mlky to be removed it is immediately
lamented over.
Frequently a scout comes around the
jolony bom s neighboring hive. He endeavors to discover the strength of the
colony. Watching his chance he will
pass the sentries undiscovered, and when
ie comes again he will bave an army at
hia baok. The only resistance is made
at the sentry gates, and very often fiorco
battles occur, many oi the fighters boing

"I've heard ot strange accidents to-

> "A little boy was flying a Uio on tho

call to the Other, and just then a flock of
swallows came flying by.
"One of the swallows, evidontly contused, flew against the boy'sface, driving
hit bill clean through his cheek. In his
agony tho lad closed his teeth hard and
held the bird fast. The swallow was
partly stunned by tho shock, and, with

the lad ran downstairs to his mother.
"Sho removed the bird and summoned

Boeing with a Purpose.
It has often beon said that very. Jew
peoplo go through the world with their
■:yes open ; nnd the remark seems especially to apply -to 'nnny.lada nnd young
men. For all practical'purposes, they
are in the condition of half-blind kittens:
they do not see because they will not observe. Whatever does not immediately
t-oncern them is "none of their business,
and tho mun who, on hearing an alarm
oi lire in the night, felt the wall near
him, nnd not finding it hot, turned over-
nnl went to sleep again, was only an
exaggeration of a too common fault-
want of interest in what is not near
homo.    .
r-'ome young mon have naturally very
limited powers of observation and lock
whnt is called an inquiring mind; but'
theso faculties may bo cultivated, and
should be in all proper directions.
Knowledgo is to bo found everywhere,
and oven a blade of grass will teach a
great denl; the greatest inventions have
come from close study of very humble
facts, 'firings whieh many peoplo have
constantly seen without noticing have
proved tho keys to mines of undiscovered:
knowledgo.
wATcnixa a pot son.
Tho marquis of Worcester, who discovered the power of stenm a' hundred
years or so before James Watt was heard
of, is said to have had his attention
coiled to tho subject by tho explosion of
rr lea-pot. The most common version,
perhaps, of .the story is that be was
cooking his own dinner, marquis though
he was, when a political prisoner during
the Civil War in England, and the
rising nnd falling of tho pot-lid during
tho process ol boiling led him tocxamine
Into the force that caused this constant
bobbing up and down. His time ns
prison was not wasted in useless pini n:g
tor liberty, but improved by the study
oi science* with tlie humblest appliances;
aud whon he found himself once more a
free man, ho sot to work ami constructed
a species of steam-engine, which, if not
a full success, was very fairly on the
road to one. And all this from watching
a pot boil, or seeing the lid fly off from
a tea-pot, whichever it was that produced such wonderful results.
.Inures Watt, who carried iris researches inlo the power of steam iritieh further,
took Irrs lirat step in watching, when a
sickly boy, tho spout of a boiling kettle,
lie wns good for nothing then but sitting
over the tire, yet he proved that one
can oven sit ovor tho tiro to somo purpose.
the swuraixu of a lamp.
The swinging ol n lamp In the churoh
at Pisa had been seen by thousands of
people without being noticed when the
eighteen-yonr old Galileo had his attention attracted by the measured regularity
ol its movements. He compared the
beat of his own pulse with the vibrations
of the pendulum, and decided that the
exact measurement of timo could be accomplished upon the somo principle.
An astronomical clock was followed by
various other experiments and discoveries, which culminated in tho discovery of
the daily movement of the earth. "How
many people," remarks the historian,
"have seen lamps swing, and other things
too, without making any account of it!"
THK FALL Ot SS AFFIX
Evory one knows the story of Sir Isaac
Newton and the falling apple, which was
quite as common an occurrence as the
swinging of a lump, for apples had fallen
since tho creation, but no ono took to.ro-
flecting upon soordinary a matter. Newton opened the eyes oi his mind as he
saw tiro apple descend, and wandered
from tho orchard to vast fields of science.
The great central law of the universe—
gravitation—was caught from observing
one of tlio most trivial of events, and I ho
name of tho discoverer has bocome immortal.

"A new sort of worm, I declare 1" said

The Salvation Army,
For several days this organization
has been carrying on operations in this
city, and our people who have nevor
beforo seen them have had uu opportunity of observing their ways. The
meetings iu the barracks havo beon
largely attended. Last night the seats
•ore tilled, atid u great many were
compelled to remain standing during
the service. People who have read a
great deal about the fantastic performances of the army, and who havo gone
to the meetings expecting to see a circus with a performing monkey, have
been disappointed. There has been
really nothing in the conduct of the
army here that could offend the orthodox, unless it be tho street processions
and the presence of drum and tambourines on thu platform. Tho meetings are made up of singing, brief addresses, and testimonies, and one cannot but be impressed with tho simple
earnestness of every member of the
army. They do not urofoss to be highly educated; but tho best education of
n person enunged in tho work of saving soul* is probably a clear assurance
that he is naved himself. This tho
members of thu Salvation nrmy seem
to possesB, nnd one can well excuse
slips in grammar where honest zeal is
so apparent. We believe tho army
is accomplishing a good work, nnd
ought to hnvo the sympathy and assistance of all who really concern themselves for tho highest good of men. In
nil respects their methods may not
meet with approval, but if they are
saving men and women from evil, surely their work is noble and wot thy of
nil praiBO.
