The committeo on temperance presented a lengthy report. This report began by stating thnt thore
were evidences that tho temperance
sentiment had been growing in this
province, but, nevertheless, there
were many discouraging circumstances. As the acts relating to the
liquor trailic now stand, it was
pointed out'lhat the rights nnd
wishes of the majority might be
completely set at deBance. Objection was taken tothe unwarrantable
granting or renewal of a license upon
payment of the legal fee, iu the faco
of a community expressedly opposed
to the traffic; tbe granting of licenses
adjacent to Indian reserves, or in
places where the principal trade ie
derived from Indians; the technicalities of the present law which in almost every case have been turned by
the judiciary to the account of liquor
sellers. The conference viewed with
regret and indignation the contemptuous manner in which petitions for
the past four years for the further
reduotion of the liquor traffic, embodying the expressed wishes of a
very large representation of the people of this prov ince.have been treated
by members of the legislature. It
is recommended that all members
and adherents of the ohuroh be earnestly urged to give theij political
support to such men as will best
aid in carrying out reformatory legislation on this subject It was
resolved that every assistance be
given to the holding of conventions
and other gatherings for the ventilation of temperance views, the
choice of temperance candidates, and
the arrangement of temperance campaigns. The conference pronounced
against high license as an "iniquitous principle," and it was declared
that no legislation be racagtpid fclpt
was not aimed at prohibition. It
was resolved that the Ontario textbook should bo introduced into our
public sohools, and that the franchise should lie extended to women.
Also that the Sunday next preceding
Christmas be set apart for sermons
bearing on the subject of temperance.—After further discussion, the
resolutions relating to the Indian
question were finally passed.—A
cordial vote of thanks was given to
the people of Westminster who had
entertained members of the conference. It was resolved tbat the conference met at Viotoria next year.
It was decided that one of the missionaries be stationed on tbe str.
Glad Tidings so he would be able to
reaoh outlying settlements now unprovided for.—The following list of
stations for the ensuing year was
read, after whioh conference closed:

IHE 0. f. 11.   CHINA UNI.
S*.t Fkahuisco, May 16.—Thi str.
Abyssinia, nf the Canadian Pacific line,
arnvod this morning after a voyage of
31 days from Hong Kong, via- Viotoria. Tho quarantine offloar .allowed
the steamer to dock immediately. She
brings three cabin passengers and 350
Ohinese. Almost as soon aa the steamer mis docked the cabin passenger
rates to Yokohama were out by the
Canadian company. In the past the
old lines have charged (200 for the
passage either to Hong Kong or Yokohama, The new rate is $150 to Yokohama. There is some talk of a pool
being formed and tbe .China trade
divided. Tbe old companies do not
intend to make any arrangement of the
kind unless they are compelled to do
so in self defense, and as long as their
steamships go out full they will not
become a party to any agreement.
On the other hand the Canadian people are talking of forcing the Pacifio
mail and Occidental and Oriental to
dividing, A plan is on foot to have
the Canadian steamships come here
llnton their homeward voyage, enabling passengers to be landed in San
Francisco in less time than can bo
made by the steamers of the old fleet.
Tho freight for San Franoisco would
also be dropped before the steamers
went to Vanoouver, and on the outward voyage the vessels would tske
flour and other merchandise accumulated at Vancouver for the oriental
trade. In pursuance ol this plan the
company haa chartered the steamship
Zambesi, snd she is now on the way
direct from Hong Kong. If satisfactory arrangements ean be made the
new line will be from Hong Kong to
Yokohama and thence to this city, returning to Japan by way of Vanoouver,
AS AMERICAN CONSUL KILLED.
San Fbanoisco, May 16.—The New
Zealand Herald, of April 10th, just received by stesmer,contains the account
af thMiurder of the American consul
at New' Britain. The nativos of the
island had been fighting and they asked tho consul to arbitrate. He was
not a success as an arbitrator far he
was attacked by one party and had a
narrow escape, retreating through
bush. Tho natives kept after him and
finally killed him. He was a new man
to the place.

Hannibal, Mo., May 16,—A break

AITFBTBX  BOBBEKS,
Nooalkb, Ariz., May 16. — Word
was received this morning from the
force of Mexican police, now in pursuit of tha two Mexicans who are
known to have taken part in Friday
night's train robbery, stating they are
on the trail and confident of capturing
them.
A-DISOBACEFCL SCENE.
Pahis, May 10. — During to-day's
session of the chamber of deputies a
disgraceful scene occurred ovor the
question of fixing tho date of tbe noxt
meeting. Each member differed with
the other and when a motion was mado
nearly all the deputies arose shouting
insulting epithets at eaoh other. The
uproar lasted several minutes and all
efforts of the new president to restore
order were unavailing. Comte De
Orville, a radical aristocrat took possession of the tribune, from which the
speakers address tbe house, screaming
in vain to make himself heard and
adding to the excitement by refusing
to leave it on the order of the president. A hundred fists wore shaken at
him and several deputies ascended the
steps to pull him down, but he clung
desperately to the railing. The president finally put on his hat and left the
chair, iho usual signal for suspending
tho session.
OBTTIDO BEADY FOR IHE FIUT.
Los Angles, Cala., May 16.—The
Democratic state convention re-assembled at 10:30 thb morning. Permanent organisation waa effected by the
election of R. F. Del Valle, chairman,
aiid tno secretaries. The committee

granted further time.
IXIKll laxhuownk's srrJUCH,
Ottawa, Msy 10.' — Lord Lansdowne, in his speech last night, spoke
in high terms of his connection with
the people of Canada. He spoke iu
glowing terms of the completion of thi
Canadian Paoific Hallway. Relative
to tlie recent proposal for olose relations with the United Slate., he objected t» it on the ground of th.dHS-
oulty of working earned by existing
divergencies of views. On the subject
of tariffs and taxation in different puts
of the empire, and the desire of each
porlion for full and local oontrel of ita
own affaire he believed Canada held
that other relationship than that at
present existing with the mother
country would net be beneficial to her,
and i'ic had no desire to change it.'

Winnipeg, May 16.—ln the legislature last night ex-Premier Norquay
moved that inasmuch aa he had been
charged with orimes, which the government said would place him behind
the bars, a royal commission would be
appointed to investigato the charges.
The government moved an amendment
that a commission should issue and
that the charges against the provincial
treasurer, Lamse, and Deputy minister
Burrows, should be investigated at
the same time. Norquay's followers
violently opposed this and a serious
quarrel occurred ill the houae. Norquay fears if ihe charges against him
are investigated with tha charges
against the others thst he ia likely to
get mixed up wilh them.

CORRESPONDENCE.
fkenree aekeases.
Editor Columbian,—In your leading
article of Monday lsst the sugi
that the three leading
water-works, the coral connecting Mad
Bay with the Fraser river near Westminster, snd the Southern Railway,—
"should be considered together," is worthy of general consideration. A good
supply of pure water is an absolute neon
sity, and as a reproductive work should
be undertaken by the city. Nobody '
should be allowed to speculate on our
water supply. As regards the canal. It
would be very desirable from many
Soints of view, but that work ahould m
one chiefly at the expense of the Dominion government, and it is to be hoped
that, is soon aa it has satisfied all the
demands of the C, P. R- Company and'
other turf tit monopolies, it will turn ita
attention. to such work as this contemplated canal. The bridging of the Frsser
river, opposite Westminster, is a work
that should have bean dona long ago by >
the provincial government. Wastmla-
ster need not shoulder all these schemes.
It is to bo hoped that this Southern Ball-
way scheme will be so conducUtEBtt tt
will be a publio success, and tbat« will
exhibit uo features of private speculation. The Southern Railway without
the bridge, at the present, would be' a
decided advantage, but, with the bridge,
Westminster city and distriot would ibe
complete, and I am sura that the provincial government, having done ao much
for the C.P.R. and Vancouver, could not
consistently refuse to assist this other
railway enterprise, whieh would still
more advance the Mat interests of British Columbia. Pioneer. '

A few days ajjo wo njentioned
that circumstanois seemed^j.to point
to San Francisco as the possible terminus of the C.P.R. Co's. transpacific steamers. In another column
will be found a despatch from San
Francisco confirmatory of tliis viow.
lt is therein intiradted that tho C.P.
11. steamers will run from Ohina und
Japan to San Francisoo direct, and
will call at Vancouver only on thoir
return trip. If this programme is
adopted, the bulk of the passenger
traffic will leave the steamer at Suu
Francisco. When tho Westminster
Southern Eaiiway has boon completed, and we are connected by rail
direct with the Pacific coast roads,
tho most satisfactory arrangement
would be for tho C.P.R. steamers to
make 'Westminster their terminal
point. Here they would enjoy tho
advantages of a fresh water harbor,
and they would here find railway connection with the wholo continent.
Many of our readers will have
read with much regret the announcement published in this paper last
evening to the eft'eot that Sunday
local trains between this city and
Vancouver will bo put on next Sunday. Wepresume thisaction is the result of the resolution lately passed by
Vancouver city council, upon which
the responsibility must fall. We aro
glud the council of this city abstained from'giving countenance to this
very unnecessary interference with
Sabbath observance. If there is any
reality at all in the faith we profess
as a nation, there is a time coming
when those who prostitute the authority conferred upon them, and
make use pf it to dofy the enactments of the Creator, will have a
fearful reckoning, It isn't half us
bid for a man to plough his field or
harvest his wheat on Sunday as to
give countenance to such schemes of
Sabbath desecration as the running
of unnecessary trains or steamboats.
In one case tho man sins himself
only; in the other he furnishes the
machinery necessary for a large
number of others to sin, and becomes a tempter of his fellows. The
C.P.R. directors dare not do in Montreal what they are proposing to do
in the cities of Westminster and
Vancouver.
Several months ago, when it had
been announced that Hon. Mr.
Dunsmair'''h^il taken proceedings
against the Vancouver Neics for libel, we ventured to advise our co-
temporary that, under the circumstances, he ought to apologise for
what teemed clearly to be a libelous
statement. Our inexperienced co
temporary, however, not only refused to do this, but intimated that
ho knew what he was about and was
quite abfe to manage his own affairs
without advice. But after a good
many months in which to meditate
on the situation, our cotemporary
determined that tho safest course
was the very one suggested by this
journal. He has, therefore, apologised to Mr. Dunsmuir, and promised to be good. The learned judge
who presided at the trial remarked
that it would, have been much better if the apology had come earlier.
Evidently' it would not have come
at all without the stimulpus. of u legal process, which, of course, robs it
of all virtue. Newspaper editors
are liable to ■ mistakes as well as
other mortals, and we see no reason
why they should not be subject to
the samo principles us apply to
others. If a man does bis fellow
man ap injury unwittingly, nothing
is more certain than that he ought to
make an apology and reparation as
soon as he discovers his mistake,
without, waiting for a process of law.
At the hearing of this cose the chief
justice, Sir M. B. Begbie, undertook
to instruct the audience with a lecture on VWhat I know about Newspapers," and it is to be regretted
that his lordship displayed a very
great -deal Of ignorance on tho subject. He quoted, with approval, the
opinion of some disappointed crunk
who declared that American newspapers were "conducted by men of
no means,,..scanty education, nnd
of a vulgar fflttn of mind," und sircuis
to think-this a fair and honest representation of a profession which is
not less honorable than the one to
which bis lordship himself belongs.
His lordship went on to deprecate
the practice of mud throwing by the
press--and we must confess that
there ia quite an extensive field
where these strictures may appropriately fall. There are not a few
newspapers, even in our own provinoe, which make mud-throwing u
regular business. Look ac the political editorials of the Guardian, the
TimetAne Standard^ (when it 1ms
any editorial), and one must be
utterly disgusted with that phase of
journalism. But this reflection does
not belong to the whole family of
newspapers. , There, are some" very
bad judges, b_ it would not lio fair
to derjounoe Sir Matthew by virtus
of that faot. But if this is his honest opipioti bt public Jphrnals, we
must cpn?lado that his reading of
the praH is Confined almost exclusively to the Guardian.—and, under
these oirouiiliite™!, !*'s statements
are not 16 veiy remarkable. As a
rule people form their opinions from
their own experience, and we would

that Sir John Macdonald is being
urged to call ex-Promier Norquay to
the senate in place of Senator Schultz
when tlio latter is npnointod governor
of Manitoba, and to give him tho position of Indian commissioner when
Dewdney leaves tho office. The ob-
jeot of this is to rid tho Tory pnrty in

Dr. Sohullz will, aftor tho sesaiun,

to spond the aummor. The report
that ho was going direct to tho Harrison Hot Springs was on error nnd
probably uroso because he recently

cottage. Ho will spend a short time

A Striking Heene.
The fire which we noticed in our
issue of yosterday had sprung up
across the river opposite this city, still
continues to sweep over the low brush
and grass land in that vicinity. It
burned brightly all last night, and exhibited some interesting scenic effects.
From behind a narrow, dark fringe of
forest on the river's edge, which concealed the real conflagration itself,
roue volumes of lumiiiious, flame-
tinted Btnoke clouds. Those, outlined against the intense azure of a
cloudless, star-Bpangled horizon, and
mirrored in tho placid depths of tho
darkly-shadowed river, in the foreground, presented a picture ut once
striking and impressive, and would
have furnished uo mean illustration
for some of the fervid flights of imagery
of Dante's famous "Inferno."

Another Colony -Timitnu,
An association has beeu formed in
England known as the Christian Temperance Colony of British Columbia.
The purpose of thii organization ib to
locate a large colony in this province
Half a dozen representatives of the association left England on tho 27th ult.
for this country, and may he looked
for any time, These men will proceed
direct to Victoria, where they will interview the govornment with respect
to a location. Thoy expect to get six
square miles of land. upon, whicli the
colony ts to be founded, and whon arrangements have beon mnde, the colony
will be sent out in detachments. It
comprises some hundreds of people
who have signified a willingness to
unite in a community where temperance and Christian principles shall prevail. There will be men of almost all
trades in the community, and they
will engage in farming, fishing, manufacturing, or any other honorable occu*
} ration that promises success. We bo-
ievo that as soon as tho pioneers of
this colony have interviewed the provincial government at Victoria, they
will pay a visit to tho royal city.
..   Tke Agrlcaltaral AiMelatl-n.
Mr. D. W. Higgins, M. P. P., president of the British Columbia agricultural association, is in the city to-day
in tho interests of the association.
Mr. Higgins is taking a very lively interest in the affairs of the association,
and is intent on making the exhibition
of 1888 much more superior than any
that have taken place in the past. A
glance at the prize list, which has just
been issued, shows that many changes
and additions have been made from last
year's list, and in every case the change
is an improvement, Among the articles included in this year's list are
many for which prizes have never been
offered before, but which were justly
entitled to the same consideration aa
the majority of items in the catalogue.
Mr. Higgins says the exhibition buildings at Victoria nre altogether too
small for the purposo intended, and it
will bo necessary to oither erect new
buildings or make large tents take their
place. Tho latter plan will probably
be adopted as the funds of the association are not likely to be ample enough
to stand the expense of erecting now
buildings. Mr. Higgins will visit
Vancouvor and possibly Borne of the
up-river municipalities boforo returning home.

Tlie Choral In Ion.
Tliu first of a series of three concerts
to be given by the Choral Union took
placo last night in tho Oddfellowa'
Hall, and was fairly well attended.
Mendelssohn's Hymn of Praise occupied tho lirBt part of the programme
und waa intently listened to and greatly appecinted by the audience. The
solos by MrB. Sillitoe, Miss Major,
Mr. Lyal and Mr. Hamber wero excellent performances and tbo choruses
wero simply grand. In the second
half Stninor's Daughter of JairuB was
rendered, and was sustained throughout in perfect timo and harmony.
The singing, both solo and choriiB,
showed a threat improvement over the
last concert, the choruses, especially,
greatly exceeded tho expectations of
the most sanguine. His Lordship
Bishop Sillitoe conducted the concert
in a very ablo manner. Miss Dickinson
and Mr. Murey, Miss Hill aud MIbb
DoBeck played tho diffioult accompaniments in a masterly style. Last
night's concert was ao generally satisfactory that the success of the two to
follow is assured. The next concert
will be given on Tuesday night iustend
of Wednesday as at first announced,
and it is to bo hoped the praiseworthy
efforts of tho Choral Union will be
rewarded with a bumper houso.

ACurlOH* Letter.
The following letter was received
the other day by the city clerk from
Hon. Mr. Justice Crease: "I nm quite
puziled what to decide on. I know
tlio valuation which has been put on
my lots is very excessive—far beyond
tho value, for I have tried tu eell and
cannot got anything like the exaggerated valuo the assjesor (whoover he
is), in epite of tbe hw, puts upon tho
lota. He should lie a sworn officer.
The rule iu Ontario ought tu be adopted hore. In the eagerness to handle
money the council haii gone outside
the law, if it ever came into court. I
have been applied to by sovenil people to start an association to curb this
excess; but as one of the old and chief
pioneers of QueoiiBbcrough, knowing
the struggles we had to go through in
the early dayB—58, 59, 00, 01. etc.—
and that the happiest years of my life
were Bpont there, and mine and Mr.
Hamley's votes were the last that were
cast in the local house for the capital
at Westminster (ulthough mo it ruined
at the time)—I cannot now, therefore,
do anything that would not tend to
strengthen the place, but rely rather
ou tho care of the council to apportion
the taxes fairly by making them upon
renl values' (making the samo deduction as iu Ontario). I, therefore, have
resolved to send the $40 which l now
enclose, and at the same tin.o acknowledge your courtesy in sending me such
full details, which you ncod not now
repeat, as I keep the particulars by mo
for reference. P.S.— It would bo a
sad pity if, after all those years of
labor ,uu4 paying taxes, industry and
economy, 1 should havo nothing to
leave, after 30 years incessant labor, to
my children, save the epitaph—
"Sinohod by Taxes!"

CORRESPONDENCE.
The K»af lu-rn Bailway Uonte,
Editor Columhian,—I would beg to
draw tiie attention of the board of trade
of Westminster to tho following: Thnt
to make Westminster tho chief market
for tho rich agricultural lands in Surrey
and Delta, the Westminster Southern
Railway should come down the Fraser
to the foot-hills, thence follow tho low
lands to Mud Bay, thence across the Serpentine and Nicomekl ou the bead of
Mud Bay to the land above tide-water,
thence to the boundary line. By carrying the* road along the foot-hills from
the Fraser to Mud Bay it would be
necessary to have a raised road-bed, and
the dirt necessary to make It could be
taken 'from one side, and that would
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCwtorla
make at least One-half of tho much-needed canal (from tho Fraser to Mnd Bay);
and by raising the road-bed across the
Serpentine and Nicomekl flak au effectual-dyke woald-bo mado, and by putting a look in tho Sorpcutiuo and Nicomekl riVera a large extent of land, say
30,000 acres, would be effectually reclaimed, for by shutting ont the tides
from those rivers there would bo a sufficient reservoir to hold the accumulated
water during the time the tide was up,
so that the, banks would never overflow.
Should a scheme something of tbe kind
be carried out British Columbia would
Boon be in a position to stop the leak
that has boen going on for so many years,
namely, the sending of bo much money
out for supplies, that wo could and
should produce at home.        Farmer.
Mr, Win. Boyd Hill, Cobonrg, writes:
"Having used Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil
for some yearn, I have much pleasure in
testifying to its efficacy in relieving pains
in tho back und shoulders. I havo also
used it in coses of croup in eliildren, and
havo fouud it to be all thnt you claim it
to be,"
The Water Hcliciue.
Editor Colusbias.—I was very glad
to find in your paper of the 14th inst. a
gooil deal of information about the proposal made by the Coquitlam Water Co. to
the city. I hope the citizens will take
this matter up, and shake it up, until
some good *vy«ter supply hi In sight.
It is admitted by all that we need a
water supply—need it badly; but the
admission has been made for some time,
and we aro still no nearer getting the
water.
Why ! Whoso fault is it! We have
a magnificent source of supply only 80,-
000 feet away, you tell us; and although
we have been "talking waiter" for nearly
two years, nothing has beeu done. I believe the council lias several times referred the matter to a committee. Somebody Baid, if Noah had referred the building of the Ark to a committee he would
havo had a good. deal too much water;
but our committees seem to load us up
the other way.
Look at the facts. Tho town is growing rapidly* The local supply of well
and spring water, which was good and
ample, as long as houses were thinly dotted ovor our flue town site, is no longer
ample, and Is speedily becoming anything but g-ood. What will it bo three
years hence, when our population will bo
double white it is now T How much
would on epidemic of typhoid fever cost
the town iu cash and reputation 1
Nature has given us tho most attractive town-site in the province. Are we
going to sacriflco tbat largo advantage
for want of a little push ?
You say the company asks too much
from us; but according to the statement
which you print, we wonld "make money
on tlie goods" by the fall In insurance
alone. It is said on the street, I know,
that insurance rates wonld not fall; but
there is too much common sense among
ns to allow such rubbish as that a patient hearing. Insurance can be bought
at market price, and with a good gravitation system of water works, the price
must full. That is what the boys cult a
dead open nud shut.
Bnt suppose it te too high 1 The town
is bigger than tin wnter company, I
fancy; and 1 seo no reason why the tail
Bhould wag the dog. If wo don't like
their terms, let us see if we can't make
tliem like ours. Vou suggest thai* the
town should take stock in tno company*.
That would be one way ot fixing it.
Then if the dividends aro ton big, at least
we'll havo the satisfaction of letting u
slice go into the city coffers, or the town
could ask them to throw open their
Htoek to the public, and then wo can
dicker with ourselves, and put the money
out of one pocket iuto tho other.
We built the branch railway. Why
can't we build the next most important
thing—water works! Surely we have
brains enough to make n good bargain,
and money enough to carry it to success.
Now, Mr. Editor, keep ufter this
thing, will you ? and don't let us go to
shop ubout it. We have had enough uf
committees sitting 011 it; it in time, now,
to have a little getting up about thu
business. It is u matter of instant and
vital importance. Every mouth adds to
onr need; and, doing our best, many
months will elapse betoru the work can
be completed. N.T. C.
May 15:1888.
The Proprietors of Parmelee's Pills
are constantly receiving letters similar to
tho following, which explains itself. Mr.
John A. Beam, Waterloo, Ont., writes:
"I never used nny medicine that can
equal Parmelee's Pills for Dyspepsia or
Liver and Kidney Complaints. The relief experienced nfter using them waa
wonderful." As a safe family medicine
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills con bo given
