American Annexation.
A few days ago we republished
an artiole {rom the San Francisco
Chronicle suggesting the unification
of-the North American continent,
ifc was proposed to aoeomplish this
by annexing Canada, Mexico, and.
Central America to the United
SSttm-of America,and the writer
of the article seemed to be of opinion that the scheme oould be accomplished without much difficulty and
without farce or bloodshed, ana that
it presented the most sensible and
complete solution of the fishery
question which has been for months
agitating the public mind. North
America confederated would form a
very large, wealthy and powerful
nation; one which, if truly bound
together by community of interest
ana sentiment, might stand out
against all comers. It embraces an
•rea af 7,900,000 square miles, nnd
a popuhiMon of about 75,000,000
soiiu. The vast resources of this
great continent are no less wonder-'
ful than the energy and intelligence
of ..its people. But there are elements of discord, inasmuch as the
rBfierences of race, religion, custom
and education are considerable. Besides, it is doubtful if the people of
Canada would consent to surrender
their nationality under such circum-
. stances, for her identity would soon
disappear. ' Tha confederation that
would suit us much better is a con
ftderacy of the whole Anglo-Saxon
race—an alliance offensive and defensive between Great Britain, the
United States and all the British
colonies of the world. : This would
be a confederacy against which
nothing could possibly stand, and
it would without doubt mould the
world's destiny. The power of tke
Anglo-Saxon race to govern is seen
in ttie fact that India, with a population of 200,000,000, is kept in subjection by a British army of about
60,000 men If ever such an nlli-
ant* wary consummated, the way
'wofjd bt made easy for the amalgamation bf the United States and
Canada, and our American cousins
might dismiss from their minds all
concern arising from the rottenness
anoV inefficiency ot their navy.
tU*#—iM IH
Astray Again.
Ws perceive that our friend of
the Colonist still permits bis party
prejudices to warp his judgment, In
his issue of Friday he accuses Mr.
Blake of abandoning his tariff principles for the take of political effect.
No*, we do not propose to take
sides in Dominion polifjcs,i)r to de-
that the Colonist's acousation against
him i. entirely out of keeping with
bis character and practice. Mr.
Blake never yet hu abandoned principle for political effeot. On the
contrary, he has fearlessly declared
principles which he knew would cost
him many votes. A case in point
is his declaration on the temperance
question. Mr. Blake knew well
enough that a large majority of the
temperance reformers belonged to
the liberal party, and in the face
of that knowledge he declared
against prohibition at present. Before making his announcement he
intimated that it would probably
offsnd and alienate some of his political friends, but this reflection
would not stand between him and
hit duty. As a matter of fact it
did alienate many people from the
Ljbwal party. But is it true that
Mr. Blake hu ohanged his views on
the. question of protection, or that
he affirms a new doctrine for political effect! The Liberal party hu
never, adapted a policy of absolute
fn* trade, nor has Mr. Blake, so
far as wa;know, ever enunciated
sueh a' doctrine. It has always
been felt that while the country was
carrying on so many public enterprises, requiring Such a large revenue, it would be .impolitic to sur-
render the customs revenue When
Mr. Mackenzie and Mr, Blake were
irr pwpsr, the customs duties were
actually -increased Inm i a basis of
15 per cent, to 174 per cent, The
docVine of the' liberal party has
brth'thsti custbm's duties should be
imposed only when required for rev-
pSteWM fo industries which co"'
no. -iim' without a bonus. All
rules have exceptions, and no Jib-
eraTr-*>Mld exclude exceptions from
the application of the tariff. Hence
then won cases in which it was
oouidend poJitio to aid certain in,
dwtriee, end there will probably he
*sitfr,o**a to' the end. Mr. Blake
U|i ,Mr»nci»ted' no 'new doctrine,
tlMsilora, when he intimates that
tke' Uhenl party would not smash
to fietei thf National Policy con-
oeeted Jtssii snforoed by the Conser

ELECTORS
—OP—
New Westminster District,
GKNTLEMEN:-I have already an*
noiu'cd myself as a candidate for the seut
made vacttnt br the death of our late representative, and as no eleotion has taken
place to Ull thnt vacancy. I now offer myself at this, the General Election.
As It ls my Intention to visit and hold
publie meetings In every settlement of
the district before election day, I wfll
meroly ln this address refer to the differ*
ent subject* that are vital to onr Interests
as a district and province, whieh will be
discussed at length on tho publio platform,
wheal hope all aspirants for the honor
of representing you In the Commons will
be present and take part In the discussion,
of which due notice will be given.
The following are some ofthe most Important questions that will have my serious consideration:
The Improvement ofthe Navigation of
Fraser Kiver.—The New Westminster
Board of Trade have, with the assistance
of our lato representative, been successful
ln obtaining a small appropriation for
thlB purpose, which hns been expended
the past fall; and lt will be the duty of
your representative tosectire such annual
grants as will suffice to complete thin lm-
fiortant- work, which will enable ships of
he heaviest draught to navigate the Fraser river at all stages of the tide, and nll
seasons of tho year.
Mquttcm' Claims.-With reference to
this matter there hus been gross neglect
on the part of the Dominion Government,
and I am of the opinion that those settlers who located thoir land under Instructions from what ls known ob Mr.
Trutch's pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto free of charge—and tho fact
that settlers have beon unable to secure
tbelr titles has acted very detrimentally
to the interests of the province generally,
and {If elected) I will he unceasing (n my
efforts to secure the adjustment of every
claim In the district.
Kailway anlki—Another very Important matter In connection with our district ls railway connection with our neighbors south of thc line. Several charters
to connect this city nnd dlstrlet with the
American system of railways have been
granted by our local legislature, but were
unfortunately disallowed by tho Dominion Government (doubttess through the
Influenco of the C. P. R.) The position
hitherto held bythe Dominion Houso ls
now untenable, and tho monopoly clause
of the C. P. K, will have to be done away
with. Should this be done thore is no
reason why railway construction Bhould
not commence ln the near future, ns our
Amerioan cousins aro ready and willing
to comtwonco work as soon as tho way ls
opon, I need only say that I shnll use my
best endeavors to obtain wild rail way connection and the abolition of the mono*
poly clause. .
Kailway «rlrvaam.-Tha C. P. It. havo
maintained excessive rates for local traflic
In this province and to points as far east
as Winnipeg. This Is not as lt should be,
and Is one of thc reasons why that great
corporation should be taught thnt lt Is not
the only power In the land, but that It
must be mado subservient to the Interests
of the people.
Telegraphs aud Kallways.-~I am of the
opinion that nll telegraphs and railways
should be owned and operated by the
government ln tbe Interests of the people!
as is partially tho cuso In Kngland, tier*
many and elsewhere, and shall (If elected)
do all I can to bring about this, vory de-
sirable state of things. .
Tke Halls.—1 shall use my best efforts
to have ull settlement it on the south side
of the river supplied regularly with their
malls from Ladner's Landing by way of
the Grand Trunk roud to Chilliwhack and
any other places not already suppl led with
mall accommodation,
Tke Tenperanee *4»»tloa.-Upon this
question I feel very warmly and sympathize most heartily with all those who aro
anxious to do away with the evils caused
by the liquor traffic and shnll (If elected)
give my hearty support to uny measures
lhat may be introduced to advance this
voiy desirable object,
lie Chlae* «*es.lo«.-\Vith regard to
to this question, I consider it an unmixed
evil, yet at the same time one >,t the hard-
problems that this nation 'ins to denl
with. I deem Itof vital Importance that
our Legislatures, hoth Fediral nnd Provincial, shuuld do their utmost todlscour-
age this traffic, and at the same time use
all legal means In their power to get rid of
those chl tinmen who are alrcudy amongst
ns.
The last question lhat I wish to bring before you Is that of Indi-pendcnco, I again
reitcrntf the statement made hy myself ln
the papers—
"!■ rellllcs, I nm antl will be I hor.
Mgkly Independent."
Several ofthe H.C. pnpors have taken
up this statement and have said a great
many uncomplimentary thln/is concerning me, such as" being on tin1 fence," '* u
Grit in disguise," and so forth, t therefore
deem it necessary to explain what I menu
by being thoroughly Independent. I consider nny member sent to Ottawa from this
Provlmepledgedtosupport any particular
pnrty has allowed himself to be fettered,
The greatest, evils which threaten the usefulness of the government of the (Tutted
States and Canada spring from party poll-
ties, and In the United mates ut tlie Inst
Eresidential election n number of tho
est men of both parties voted Indepnnd-
enllv, and for what they considered the
best Interests of thc country regardless of
party. i
As an Independent I shall endeavor to
vote and act (if elected), first, In the lnteresl* of my constituents; secondly, In the
Interests..of the province, and lastly for
the general good of the Dominion, pledging myself neither to Grit nor Tory, but
claiming the right as a freo born British
subject to use my Influence and vote on
the side where I consider your Interests
and the Interests of the nation He.
I tako this opportunity of soliciting tbe
vote and influence of all,and while 1 shall
feel very much honored if yon elect me as
your representative, I trust that time will
prove that your confidence has not been
misplaced.
I remain. Gentlemen,
Yours respectfully,
dwfeiMo         T. J. TRAPP.

To the Electors ofthe Electoral District or Xew Westminster.
GENTLEMEN!—-shortly After' the la-
mentoddiathofour lato Representative,
Mr. Homer, 1 wai Solicited by a number
the House of Commons ot Canada. The
personalsgllcHation of friends, wasshorr-
ly followed by requthiUons so numerously
signed, by prominent aod hiilueninl Electors of the Oity and District, thut I felt lt
Ut he my duty Ui place my services at tbelr
disposal. Ills not therefore. Gentlemen,
nBuself-nomlnutedcundldute.that I nsk
for your support, but I do eo ln response to
tho request of over four hundred of your
number. " -;
To many of you, Gentlemen, who have
known me for a long time, It-Is unneoes-
snryformoto say, that I nm perfectly
familiarwlth the great and varied re-
sources of this Province.. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has been derived
from actual experience, and will (If elected) onablo mo to plnco prominently before Parliament, tho great resources of
this Province, nud the means necessary
to he employed to aid In thoir further
development. |f"£
It is Impossible, Gentlemen, in an nddress such as this to do moro than itlludo
to some of the questions of Interest and
Importance to you, whioh as your representative, I woultl consider it to be my
duty to bring to tho notice of Parliament.
I Will, howevor, enumerate a few matters
of great importance to ns all, In regard to
whlcb tt will be my earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.
1 will endeavour to have removed from
tho mouth of our nobio Kiver, every impediment to its free navigation, nnd have
nocoHHnry lighthouses erected.
I will endeavor- to secure to settlers and
squatters nn Immediate title to their
lands. This I consider to bo a matter not
only of Justice, but also of expedienoy.
Heretofore great injustice has been done
to a vnlunble nnd deserving class of our
population, to whom, had Justice beon
done nnd facilities afforded for acquiring
hoineritoads, the results of their Industry
would, ore this, hnve done much to devel
on the agricultural capabilities of this fine
district.
I nm aware, Gentlemen, thnt tho num*
bet of representatives to which ench province of the Dominion Is entitled Is bimod
upon population,yet I bolieve that, owing
to exceptional circumstances, such as tbe
fact thut tills provinco contributes to tho
revenue of the Dominion a much larger
percentage, according to population, than
any of lito other provinces; und- also to
the fact that largo centres of population
arc rapidly being formed ln this district-
that It Is entitled to a HrgiT representation In the parliament of the Dominion,
nnd which as a nm* tor of Justice I will endeavor to obi uln.
1 will also endeavour to obtain for the
residents of. this District hotter uobUiI
facilities, to which thoy ure Justly en*
titled.
I will use my host oflorls to secure equitable rates ou nil rail wuy and telegraph
lines, and to hnvo tlie snme fixed by law.
Tho Interests of llrltlsh Columbia demand that, every Impediment In tbo wuy
of constructing railways to our Southern
boundary and other portions nf this district be rcmov«d to nld In the development of our resources. I will endeavor to
huve this nrcompllshod, and also to obtain aid for the construction of canals and
tho Improvement of navigable streams.
I will ulso consider it my duty to render
all possible uid to uny legislation which
seeks to simplify nnd render less costly
tho ndm I n Ist rut ion of Justice, especially
as between individuals nnd corporations.
My 'political platform Is, in tbe first
place, the Interest of Uritish Columbia,
which I believo can bo best served by my
giving un Independent support to the
present government, which litis not ln tho
past been unmindful of the interests
of British Columbia, und to whom we
are indebted fur the early completion
of the rullwiiy, which hus brought
us into communication with the Eastern
Provinces and Europe, und through
the agency of which, we will ln the
near future, bo placed ln direct communication with Austrulia.Cliliiu,Japun,
nnd the Grout Eustern Empire, whieh
must provo to hoof Incalculable value to
this province, uml to this district In particular,
Iji conclusion, geyiicjufii, T have only
to say, Hint I am prompted by u sincere
desire to benefit this district nud tu nld In
promoting Its varied Interests, anjl I nsk
your support only upon these grounds.
It Is my Intention to scons many of you
previous to the election as time and circumstances will udmltofln thc meantime.
I remain,Gentlemen,
Voitrs very truly,
dwfcStd DONALD 0HISHOLM.

All a Mistake.
thi iio mini m NOT 0WIW.
Ottawa, Feb. 8.— Seine mistake appears to have ■ been mode in the announcement that the Britiah government ore sending uut a number of 80-
ton guns for the coast defence of Esquimalt nud Victoria. Several sixty-four
pouudors Imve been sent out from
England, uut for the armaments of
forte, but to be plaoed either on board
of ships of war belonging to the Pacifio
squadron, or go into naval reserves.
Some time ago. the British minister of
war made application to the Canadian
Pacific railway folks to know if they
could transport one or more eighty-ton
gum ovor their road. An estimate of
the cost was given with a model of the
car whioh was lo have been used for
that purpose, and from that it wu reported that the shipment had been
made. Since then nothing has been
heard of the eighty-ton guns. The
officer in command of tlie British Columbia, distriot does not speak very
favorably of the condition of the armament at thnt point. He reports that
the guns are few, with rotten timbers
and .carriages, while all are without
sights. The batteries at Victoria and
Eiquimalt, the officers say, are in a
discreditable condition.

Bronze is a comparatively new substance,

Barnyard Savage Sat On.
Editor Columbian: In your week
ly of Februsry 2nd sn item appeared
over the fictitious nsme of" Barnyard
Savage" in which the writer seeks to
throw reflection on Surrey council respecting rosd work on Smith hill. As
that piece of work has been dune, so
far, according to my orders, as instructed by the counoil, I consider
myself justified in informing you, as
well aa Barnyard Savage and the public generally, that the job is not yet
completed, cold weather having put a
stop to any furthar progress for tlio
present. Our over-zealous barnyard
cur may consider, therefore, that he ia
a little too previous. Permit me, further, to inform the barnyard subject
that he is merely exposing his ignorance when he criticises the council
with regard tothe road alluded to, aa
all practical men will tell him that
brush is tho best material that can be
obtained to dam n watercourse In
this esse it wss necessary to put the
rosd in suoh condition that traflic
would not be impeded, whioh could
not be dono nt that time of the year
by filling tho washouts with earth from
tno ditches. The capacity of the
ditches is quite equal to the present
requirements, and the most brainless
"savogo" should know that mid-winter
is no time to dress ditches, as they aro
either frozen or partially filled with
water. If our barnyard subject will
take tho troublo to remove his goggles
ho will observe a small mound of oarth
on tho flat near the lop of the hill
which will serve as a watershed when
that next shower of rain coines along,
which he predicts as liable to cause
such devastation among tho brush.
Perhaps our friend cun tell us whether
that storm is likely to affect the province generally. I am afraid the United
States weathor prophets are nowhere.
I am not at all surprised at the audacity exhibited by Barnyary Savago, as
it is but ono of tno symptoms of a depraved intellect. Ho does show a
cowardly disposition behind a fictitious
name whilo attacking Surrey council.
—Yours, &e. G. W. Cann.
Surrey, Feb. 8th, 1887.
Maple Ridge Council.
The regular monthly meeting of the
council was held in fhe town hell on
the Sth insl. Councillor Dawson was
absent. Communications were read
a. follow.: From H. T. Thrift, asking in behalf of the Surrey council the
co-operation of ihi. council to urge the
government to pnss certain ainend-
menta to the municipal aet; from the
Dominion government agent in reference to the road at Port Haney obstructed by the railway contractor;
from the hon. the provincial secrotary
in reference to the municipal eleotion,
and from Me.tr.. Drake, Jackson &
Helmcken and Bon, A. N. Riohardt
in reference lo the proper constitution of the council. Mr. D. 0. Webber was appointed collector for the
presont year. The other officers were
reappointed. By-law. appointing officers and a by-law regulating the assessment snd court of revision for the
year received Iheir first and .econd
reading..
Clerk wa. requested to notify path-
master, that they have been reappointed, and should any decline to
act, to inform the counoil at once.
On motion of Coun. Laity, ascended by Coun. Ferguson, permission was
granted to all pathmasters to call on
ratepayers in their respective beats to
remove obstructions that may from
time to time interfere with traffic, but
in no case shall any ratepayer without
authority from tlio council be oredited
with work exceeding thut allowed under pathinuBH-rs Inat yenr.
It was moved l-y Coun. Laity, seconded by Coun. Doctlstvmler, that tbe
clerk communic.ue with the government and counit-rniuiid the order for
Ihe surrender of the letters pstent, a.
the legal advice obtained from tho
Hon. A. N. Richards clearly show,
that tho surrender »f the patent i.
not at all necessary.
Conn. Ferguson tenaciously adhered to his belief lhat the council is
illegal, stating thst lie was in possession of informolion from the attorney
guneral corroborating his contention,
and he earnestly pleaded for the surrender of thu patent and for a new
municipal election. Coun. Sinclair
supported the motion, which was accordingly carried.
Tlio clerk waa reqiieated lo write to
tho Surrey municipal counoil and to
•tat. that this council is in full accord
with them in the several mattera set
forth in their communication.
Officers were instruotod to have
their bund, executed by next meeting
of council.
Collector wss instructed to  obtain
XI advice aa to the best manner to
>t in collecting delinquent  taxes.
O'oun. Laity gave  notioe  that  at
next meeting he will bring in a by-law
to amend the fence by-law of 1881.
Regulation amendment  by-law received its first and second readings.
Council  then adjourned  till  first

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THK 10TH OK JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper nml
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to ho known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho concern hns boon for
nearly u year owned and controlled by
tho British Columbia Stationery ami
Printing Compnny, of Now Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver, Tlio object of
tho now company is to continue the publication nf the lIuiTisit Con»Mrun* news*
pnper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely hy
thoso whose individual interest it will lie
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will bu no
slackening of tha energy hitherto displayed in thu mnmigcment uf the "stub*
bailment, and ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The CnLtruniAN will continue to bo entirely independent iu bath Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may lie considered in the public Interest.
Tho concern is now entirely soparute front
any othor business, the book aud
stationery establishment in this uity
having been tnken over by Mr. T. It.
Pearson, wbo will continue to carry it on
in his own nnme and for his owu benefit.
It is desirable tlmt a daily newspaper
ihould be maintained iii this oity, and
the new company asks for publio patron*
age on tho ground that it Is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that tbe Columbus bo judged on Its own merits and
supported only so long an Ita policy is
consistent with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts due tho concern must be sottled
without delay so that the books, of lhe
former oompany mny lw adjusted and
closed,   Address ull communications and
remittances to
