Current Events and Opinions.
The report,of the Buen Ounul
Oompany, shows once more how
trifling is the interest of ull the rest
of the world in the artificial strait
compared with that of England.
Of the entire number of ships that
went through the Canal, throe out
of every four were English. France
comes next, and her vessels were
just about oiip-tentli the number of
England's. It is worth noting that
the Australian trade through the
canal has increased with unpuralleled
rapidity during the last seven years.
In 1878, twenty-seven Australian
ships passed through; in 1884 the
number wits 228, which is not far
short of the French total. Buch
figures as these are only one argument the more for making English
imperial insurance really effectual.
To be satisfied because the English
navy is larger than thoso of other
powers is absurd. In a few years
it will have to protect half a dozen
countries each of which will have a
commerce greater than that of most
European states.—The Week.

NUMBER 5
Those wbo argue in favor of commercial union with theUnitedStates
because of the targe commercial relations existing between Canada and
the neighboring republic, are commended to the consideration of these
facts: In 1685, Canada's exports to
Great Britain were $41,877,705 and
her imports from the same country
941,406,777. During the samo
year, however, Canada's exports to
the United States were only ■$39,:
752,734, but her imports from that
country totalled $47,151,201. jif
other words, though Canada exported more to Great Britain than to
the United States and imported
from the United States nearly eight
millions more than she sold to thnt
country, yet she imported from
Great Britain nearly as much as she
exported. Why is it in the light of
these facts we hear so much about
J the importance of commercial union
with the United States and ignore
altogether the trnde of that country;
—Great Britain—wliich, after all^
is our present principal and most
profitable customer? Perhaps some
advocate of commercial union will
explain.—Ottawa Free Press.
!     Prohibition in Iowa has forced
i its opponents to take a step forward.
■ The democrats nnd greenback ers of
the state, who have "fused" for the
coming   election,   have   published
their platform to the world.   In it
they declare for "a law to.secure
to each county and municipal corporation the right to determine for
itself the prohibition or licensing of
the sale of intoxicating liquors as
a   beverage, providing   by   proper
legislation for the enforcement of
prohibition   where  prohibition   is
adopted; and where license is adopted for a license fee of not less thnn
$500, with such legislative restrictions as will promote sobriety nnd
suppress free whisky."   So it will
be seen that prohibition in Iowa
has accomplished ut least one great
result.     It has forced even tliose
who favor the liquor traffic to call
for a city and county local option
law, under which prohibition shall
be   enforced  where prohibition is
adopted by a populnr vote, and U[i-
■ ■ der which a tax of not less than
$500 shall be levied upon the sale
i of  liquors in cities and counties
where the people do uot vote prohibition.    This we regard as a very
sensible platform ou the liquor question.     But does any one imagine
thnt those who are favorablo to tho
liquor  traffic, or at least not its
fl enemies, would or could have beon
.induced to take this position Imd
V they not been driven to it by prohibition .   If advocacy .of prohibition in Oregon shall havu the same
f, effect us in lows—that is, if it shall
i. force those who protest against pro*
1;. hi bit ion,   including   members   of
|| liquor rings and others who insist
* that the traffic should be ns free as
[ any other business from tax, interference,   regulation,   and   control,
come to this ground—why then the
push for prohibition in Oregon will
.accomplish a great work.     But a
•great deal will hove to lie done yet
yin Oregon before tho liquor rings
' and the political rings that trade
-'and traffic with them will bn brought
to their knees ns iu Iowa.    But it
: will come, ami  the oflbrfc for pro
ihlbition will be one of tho chief instruments in bringing it about—
^Portland Oregonian,
f Yankees Growlnjr Desperate.
j; Halifax, N. Si, July 7.—American
fishermen are running desperato rink*
to get bait from Nova Scotia ports.
They must get it by book or by crook,
ior as Capt. Jewell, whoso reuel wai
captured at Shelburm-, said, tho yenr
will be diiutrnu-i In them, hence thoy
are resuriinjt to evory kind of dodge,
and many of   tlicm  nro succeeding.
They put into port on Some flimsy fee
text, such as water, to get decks
caulked or some other subterfuge, and
thon arrange to got a supply of bait delivered to them on the wing at they
sail out of harbor early nest morning.
That was the triok to be played at
Shelburne, but they neglected to enter at the custom house, ran into the
arms of Capt. Quigley, and the payment of $1,200 will serve to sharpen
the memory of all these skippers for
some months; but at Canso and Arieh-
at.'now wholly unprotected by cruisers,
they are mooting more success, j They
enter nt the custom Iioubo for "wnter"
or "shelter"1 and when the bait men
are getting their supplies in the esrly
dawn they set sail and make purchases
as they pass down the harbor,'
People are wondering where the
cruiser Howlett is. She has not teen
in CheJabucto Bay, where of all places
she ia most needed, just now, for ten
days. Nothing hss been hoard of the
other cruisers. Of the seven afloat
the Terror is, the only one that haB
done anything, and her success was
only by good luok as the prises ran
into the haibbr where she was lyin£.
Meanwhile American mackerel men
are making rich hauls in Prinoe Edwnrd Island waters, and bankers are
Btealing supplies ol bait all along the
coast,' These vessels can be captured
at any time after proof is obtained that
they have violated the law and treaty,
yet no effort appears to have been
mado to capture any of tho schooners
which have flagrantly violated the law
during the.past two months. Some of
the Yaukeo skippers aro growing desperate, and threaten to have bait by
fair means or foul* and say they are
bound to tish inside the throe mile
limit nnd will run the risk of capture.

The council met at' the Delta town
hall on Saturday,' the 10th July.
Present a full bonrd. The clork waa
instructed to notify Mr. W. I. Gosaett
in reply to lira communication that
the petition referred to never came
before this council, consequently they
know-nothing about the matter. A
communication from Jno, Oliver was
referred to road committee, and one
from tho provincial secretary was received and tiled. Tha clerk was in-
Btructed to apply to the government
for the municipal grant of $1,000.
The clerk wob instructed to call for
tenders for tho following works, viz,
2A mites of a road and ditch com
mencing at end of the Burr road,
thence south; cleaning out the Benson
rond ditch; SOO rods of a ditch and
road along trunk rond; 40 rods (more
or loss), commencing at the MoDoug-
nll road, thonee east. The council
then adjourned.
The New Military Rifle.
Yesterday afternoon Col. H. T. Ar-
butlmot, Royal Artillery, Superintend*
ent of the Small Arms Factory at Enfield, read a .paper in the theatre of the
Royal United Service Institution on
tbe now military rifle which ia to be
issued to the troops. The weapon hu
beon officially dubbed.the Enfield-Mar-
tiui, Col, Arbuthnot gave a historical
sketch of tho changes that had ensued
in the adoption of small arms in the
British service from the date of the
discarding of "Brown Buss." Ho contended that at the time of ita adoption
■the Martini-Henry was the finest military rifle in Europe. Although he waa
aware differences of opinion existed as
to-the merits of tho breech action of
the Martini-Henry, he had never
known it to .fail. It was true there
wore complaints; uf jamming in the
Soudan, but that was more due to the
cartridges thaii the breech action,
and with a bolt notion the jamming
would have been worse. It was not
until 1870 thoy heard doubts expressed
about tho superiority of the Martini-
Hotiry. At ranges under 500 yards it
was inferior to other rifles, but above
thnt distance it wab bettor than moat
rival weapons. Ool. Arbuthnot then
gave Some technical details, respecting
the Entield officials' experiments undertaken [to ascertain the best average
bore,'so ns to recure a low trajectory,
accurate shooting and great range,
Tho now Enlield-Martini ie to be of
.40 calibre, as against .45, tho aise of
tlio present Martini. Ko change is to
he mndo iu the longth of tho barrel,
but the weapon with tho bayonet fixed
will weigh 10 pounds and 4 ounces, ss
againat 10 pounds. The breech aotion
remains unulterod, but thero is an addition in the shape of a safety bolt to
prevent the trigger falling. Thero nro
also onu or two minor. altera tions. Iu
appearnnce, however, the ritle is much
altered, for tho thick eudof the barrel,
or nearly 18 inches, is incased with
wood, so as to enable the soldier tn retain his grin whon the rifle becomes
heated in notion, The fore end of the
stuck has-beeu thinned away and
grooved from underneath the rifle, to
prevent rain Iodizing between tliu barrel and tlio stock. To give n littlo less
straightuess to the butt the breech
blook is also attached at n more acute
angle thau formerly.. Tho bayonet,
in place of boing attached to the aide,
ia now to he placed under tho barrel to
nasiut in keeping it down during the
action of firing. At Inst we nro to liave
a solid drawn metallic cartridge case.
It will contain 85 grains of powder
nnd » bullet weighing 384 grains. Furthermore, these cartridges, for the
firat time in -service,'are to bo of uniform shapo and size, so thnt lhey can
be used for rifle, carbine or machine
gun. Tho now rifle is sighted up to
2,000 yards, and nt that range has a
lower trajectory than nny other weapon, the maximum elevation at that
range being but 1(00 feut. Tlio rilie
wns not a mngnzino gun, but had an
attachable apparatus oiled a "quick
loader" intended to servo for that pur-
p»ae. It waB designed to assist the
meu iu cold or wut weather, or iu the
dark. By menus nf the quick loader
six rounds could bo fired in 25 seconds, aa hy touching a Bpring thb cartridges tumbled iffto the soldiers'
lingers ready to bo pushed into the
breech. The new bayonets weru next
explained, and (he mure stringent
teals adopted to detect inferior wea-
pous which had become necessury
fro.m the expiritmci) gained in the
finiiilai) No ('I'riiiiH to originality
were made for any nf thu Improve*

At a public meeting lutely held
at Beayertop, Ont., Hon. Edward
Bluke distinctly announced himself
in favor of manhood suffrage for the
Dominion franchise. This plank, it
is said, will be part of the new pint-
form in course of being constructed
by the Reform party in Canada. It
is possible that before the platform
has been completed the public mind
may be educated up to the point of
believing that a woman is as good
as a man, and the Reform franchise
may embrace the doctrine of female
suffrage. This is the point that
will eventually be reached, dud tlie
sooner the better.
Tho Kamloops Sentinel asserts
that the nomination paper put in
by Mr. Semlin is not good. The
law requires that thr names of five
voters ahull appear on the nomination paper, but it is stated that two
of the persons who signed Mr. Sem-
lin's paper were not voters. We,*
do not know what course will be'
pursued in this matter. It would
be a. pity to upset an election in
which tlie people showed a decided
preference for Mr. Semlin by placing him away above any of the
' other candidates. At the same
time, if the law has been broken it
1 ought to be impartially ad ministered.

' The Vregoniaii notices the fact
that two tea ships are on their way
from China to Portland with cargoes of tea. It declares that the
tea trade, which it was once supposed would go. to Tacoma, will be
handled at Portland for the reason
that it pan be handled there with
greater economy. But the Oi'egonian
has not a very enlarged notion of
thit Ohina tea trade, for it concludes
its remarks in tlie following words:
"Bat, after all, the China trade is
no great thing. Ik is #0110 of the
big delusions of commerce, and will
not greatly profit whichever of the
Paoifio coast ports becomes its depot."         .
We are not going to defend either
the Colonist or the Guardian for
what was said about the Vancouver
relief fund. We confess, however,
that we are disappointed at the way
in which thU matter iu treated in
the VatafaMt-W Hefnld^tVt yesterday.
Since the .administration of the relief fund has been publicly questioned, the only way to satisfy the public mind would be the publication
of a statement by the committee.
We are sure' such a statement would
restore confidence. With Mr. L. A.
Hamilton as chairman of the committee, assisted by other gentlemen
of character' and standing in the
community, it seems most improbu
ble that there has been anything
hut the most judicious care exercised. But .the sooner a statement
appears the "better will it lie for all
parties. '.    "
Halifax is-to be made the greatest
naval station in the world, and the
defences of British Columbia are to
lie greatly improved, partly at the
expense of Canada and partly at
the expense of tho mother country.
Australia is also strengthening herself upon her borders. The Atistra
lians, by the way, have a very respectable navy. At the present moment they are considering, upon the
invitation of the imperial govern
ment, the advisability of uniting in
the establishment of a federal navy,
supported by Great Hritain and her
dependencies. Tho premiers of the
various colonies will meet nud discuss tho matter with Admiral Tryon
shortly. The Cape is also asked to
join, and Canada may probably be
.invited to express an opinion upon
the aubject. This would appear to
lie the first practical movement ii
the direction of imperial federation
—Toronto Mail  ,
The Land Grievance.
As the minister of the interior is
now in this city, and has come ostensibly (or the purpose of adjusting the land grievances, we hope
those who have grievances will take
proper. stwps to hive them presented intelligently. For a great
many years the people of this dis
strict efpe«»|ly^«v*r,h^sifferJng
loss and 'nrihdyance oh 'account of
the Dominion lauds in the railway
belt These land* have lieen shut
up ngainst settlement, and as they
rt!*'t»mong the very best agricultural
lands in the country, the shutting;
of them up became a serious draw*
hack. .Believing tbe,variousassur-
JiacLjljew} ,gtfel1 wifch
that squatters'claims would be recognized when the time for administering the lands came. ^Vhen.the,
settlement bill was passed fey the
provincial legislature, obe of' it*;
clauses provided that the Canadian-
government "shall give persons who
have squatted on any of the said
lands within thc railway belt on tho
mainland, prior to the passing of
this act, and who have made substantial improvements thereon, a
prior right of purchasing .the lands
so improved at the rates charged to
settlers generally." -Another clause
provided that the federal government should, "with all convenient
speed" open the railway lands for
sale "on liberal terpis to actual settlers." Tlie delay iii opening the
lands to settlement became so long,
however, that the time limit uncjer
which squatters could nvailthem-
selves of preemption rights was
extended likewise. But there were
serious ttyubts iu-,-{naiiy minds respecting the final adjustment of the
land matter, and, tliese doubts had
the effect of preventing many people1
froin taking up land and preventing"
those who held land from going on
confidently withiniprovements. The
lunds still stand in tbis uncertain
position. LWe.* -have.-Ajeen assured
over und over, again by,both'Qo
minion and provincial ministers that
the lands would be put in the market
almost at once, nnd that the rights
of squatters would bo .fuIty protected; but this assurance does, not
count for much in the face of the
fact that even now, after tho Inflse
of more than two years, the lands
are not in the market and the public
does /riotkrio$ .**hw 'tiiey will fte.
But when the -regulations uni\ejr
which it was proposed to. administer'
the railway lands appeared, they
were found to be so utterly unsuited
to the circumstances and conditions
of the country that public faith'in
ultimate justice experienced a severe
trial. Sub-section 4 of sect. 27'of
the land act provides that the preemption regulations do not apply :to
unsurveyed lands, or "to land valuable for its timber, or to hay land,1
or land on which thero is a stone or
marble quarry, or coal or other mineral having commercial value; or
whereon thete is any water power
which may serve to drne machinery,
or for Und which, by reason of its
position, such as being the sliore of
an important harbor, bridge site or
canal site, or being either an actual
or prospective railway terminus or
station it would be in the
public interest to , exempt."
These restrictions were of such
a nature that one could scarcely find n piece of agricultural land'
in British Columbia which one
might safely take up and --improve
as a squatter, A great many persons have taken up lands, however,
in spite of tho discouragements presented by the land regulations, and
have beon seeking (hithel-to in vain)
to obtain from the Dominion government some instrument that would
confirm them in possession of their
holdings. iTntil the government is
in a position to make conveyances
to these people, the doubts and un
certainties which have operated so
injuriously upon the settlement of
the district -will continue. It is
hoped, therefore, that the visit of
Hon. Mr. White will result in a
satisfactory adjustment nf the laud
grievances, and the opening of tliese
lands to settlement at once on sucli
terms as will be fair to all parties.
It has been feared that thc persons
in whose hands it.". rested to determine what constituted valuable tim
her lands, or hay land, or land vhIu
able for stone, etc., might come to
the administration of the lands with
ideas not at all adapted to the circumstances of ,the ^country. What
might be considered valuable timber or hay in eastern Canada or the
north-west might- lie worthless for
commercial purposes in British Columbia; and certain events have
already transpired ji-vhiull gave color
to the lielief thnt somcTerf the persons sent from the enst to admjnis*
ter the hinds and timbur were not
guided by a just appreciation of the
very different conditions which pre
vail on this const. We think it is a
great pity that tliese matters wore
not left to a !>6ard of resident British Coium I lians. If this had been
done we feel sure tlie lauds would
he disposed of in such away as lo
give far better sntisfaotion, and,
without sacrilicu.of federal,interests,
citic ocean, which was the contract
then entered into. That was six years
ago; five In reality, since the contract
wa» first eutered into, and to-day what
do Wfe #>? Four years hetoiW the
terms. fi-Md for the completion « thi-
contract,,, and four i«iiu hefuiH th|i
thue required by the Carnarvon 1Armi*
(cheers): That 'ia -a rec.™"of wfiich,
not tho people of British Columbia
alone, but the people of Canndn may
well bo proud (cheers). To-day British Columbia finds herself bound to
the other provinces not alone by ties
of nationality and loyalty, but by the
iron band which in these days is the
strongest cement that cau be applied
for uniting '.people together. Tp. accomplish nll this required, ns you may
readily uudorstand, a good dual of.
courage on the pnrt of the-statesmen
of Canada.- . When the .Bjn(|ipito was
first formed there were those who said
that.tho, compauy would limply build
the lino from Winnipeg td the foot of
tlio Rockies, and that thoy.would leave
tho line nortii uf Lake Superior and
to British Columbia to the remote future nnd declare (after having built
tho paying part of tho line) that they
woro unable to go any furthor. That
was tho popular argument used by the
opponents to this eontrnet who called
attentiou to the American ..interest
which-would prompt them to. build it
na nu extension of their own lines, and
those who argued from the standpoint
of what appeared to be thoir direct
perspiml interest urgod-tltat that result
must follow, end it is quite evident to
my mind* thnt the people of Can-Ida,
ot many of them, wero not singular iu
faking that vie*. To-day the road is
completed under the original terms,
with the exception that for ten millions
we take land, instead of money, nnd
we take baok those lands at unuhalf
tho price phued on them by our opponents; und I think therefore that the
record of the government as woll as of
the compnny entitles them to the consideration of the people of this country who admire courage in statesmen
as well us in individuals. .(Cheers).
But curiously enough we havo even
to-day to justify our policy in connee-J
tioii .-with tlie ?ailwi^.;''I&; you will"'
look at Grip you will find a statement
of tho policies of the two political
lenders, where Sir John Macdminld's
policy is called a 'Jingo' policy, and
AU*. tilake'a a 'business-like' policy;
•lid jlT.^Bliike to-day is going thriwyh
Ontario, trying to convince, the pet-pie
that his policy' would have,'b«en infinitely better. (Laughter.) - I can* uu-
deratiuid that five years ago, but 1 confess to you thnt in presence of the fact
that people are traveling over the railway, and that the British Columbians
aro. preseut iug addresses to those who
hate come over the line I can hardly
un durst nud how any man but ono who
neither forgetB nor lenrus anything,
could advnnceaucha monstrous proposition. That policy was to leave tho
lino north of Lake Superior.and
through. British Columbia to; the remote future, und to build''the line a
hit nt a time, creeping after sotllenient.'
with the idea that hy tho. time it ji*
to tho foot of tho Roches (here would
be such a population os.woi^L warrant
further construction, it wifit yuu ull
long life, but you would live very long
-reiitlcmeti, if tlie construction of the
line had depended upon that'businesslike method. (Laughter and cheers.)
But we are told that the govornment
had enormously increased tho publie
debt.   I do not see how it could have
been uthor-vUti, but ua we ore all interested in seeing how we stand in
this regard, you will pardon me for
oiiterini; slightly' into details! The
debt of Canada has increased vory
much since 1878. 1 liave no desire as
a member of the government or as a
public mau to underestimate that fact.
It has increased since ,tln}u one hun-

but our available assets have increase-
timbers and ita fisheries are attracting
men from the East. During the last
session of-parllament wo chartered one
line of railway to ron from theO.P.B.
to n .mining distriot, nnd before ten
years,are over you will find these
brautlheB running east and west, nud
Britiih Columbia will become what I
have uot hesitated to aay in the parliament of Canada, one of the richest
provinces in the Dominion. Then we
are looking for the trans-Pacific trade
whieh ia certain to come this way, and
we are about to realize the dream of
the early voyageura, who leaving Montreal and going westward gave to tho
little village of Lachine its nanie, ns
indicative of the way to China. Today we find ourselves almost within
grasp of that dream. Wheu Sir John
returned last fall from England he said
that the real termini of the road were
Liverpool and Hongkong. Without
wishing to refer to recent events in
England, it must be a source of .satisfaction to us all to know that, whatever may be the result, strong imperial
interest has beon excited in this question, for we know that Lord Salisbury,
before be left nftiee, left a minute of
council recommending a liberal subsidy
for a line of .steamers botween this
point and Australia, and the Canadian
government have authorized their high
commissioner to invito a conference of
the representatives of tho colonies now
in London for the purpose of securing
assistance for the construction of the
cable from the Pacific coast in British
Columbia to Australia. The cable Vill
be a harbinger of a trade certain tu
spring up iu tho early future, nnd men
here will- live to see the day when it
will be the.' favorite route between
China and Australia and Great Britain. . In order that these things may
be accomplished union- among us all ia
essential. We must realise that wo
have a common interest in building up
this great Dominion of ours. You here
have the. honor nod interest in tho future of this'couqtry. What tho future
has 'in store for yob no one can fully
say, but if wo are true to ourselves,
said get rid as far as we can of all local
jeilloQsiea and troubles, and realize
that upon individual energy, 'enterprise and patriotism must depend the
future "bf this country, I venture to
Bay thut we shall see in Canada a land
of whieh wo may all be proud, a heritage Which we maybe glad tii send
down to our children, a country worthy of the land from which we sprang;
worthy in all respects, both aa to material resources, us to common development, as to those high aud moral
qualities which have distinguished the

Thos. White, minister of the interior,
met a deputation uf squatters in the
Dominion land office in this city yesterday afternoon, A petition signed
by over 200 settlors in the district was
presented to the hon. gentleman, asking for free homesteads, for modifications in reference tu the improvements
required under the homestead law,
that farmers and sons be permitted to
take homesteads for eaoh and make
improvements on single homesteads,
and that provision be made for
grants of small holdings for fruit
growing. Mr. White pr -mised that
the matter* should -all receive attention, admitted that the grievances of
British Columbia squatters had boen
too long neglected, and promised a
reply to the petition at an early date.
A petition was also presented from the
people of. the Sumas dyking district
aaking-tbat the Dominion government
give them titles to thoir lands. In
reference to this Mr. White said that
it was uncertain whether the laud belonged to the Dominion or the provincial government, and titles could not
be given until this point waa settled.

Vancouver has been; wonderfully free
from'outrages such as too often prerail
in new western towns. There has
been a good deal of drunkenness (no
wonder, when saloons are permitted
to multiply without limit) and Sabbath breaking, but crimes against the
person have been' of ' comparatively
rare occurrence. A few dayB ago,
however, the quiet of the new city waa
disturbed by pistol shots which rang
out on the air, and it was found that a
man named Stott had attempted to
shoot two companions with whom he
had' a quarrel o vertical nou matters.
It seems that Stott, Fenton and Hen-
niger had undertaken a job of clearing
conjointly upon the understanding that
they were to share the profits equally.
Stott worked for a while at the job
and quit, and when it had beeu finished he quarrelled with the others ubout
a settlement, and the quarrel ended
with pistol shots. It is Baid that Stott
was greatly exoited, and, hl| tirijif was
so wild that it hurt no one—which ia
most fortunate for both htm and his
companions. He was heard before the
Vancouver polioe magistrate and committed for trial. It is to be hoped the
authorities of Vancouver will firmly
repress such persona. If once lawlessness begins to assert itself the reputation of the city will be greatly injured.

To the Hmwrable Thmnti
ister of the Interior:
Sir.—In the name of tho citizens of
Vancouver, the western termitma of the
Canadian Pacifio Railway, allow 1110 011
thia your first visit to our city and to
this province, to offer you our hearty
congratulations on your anfu arrival
amongst us.
The long trip made by yuu in discharge of your official duties to reach
this confine of the Dominion must,
though fatiguing, lmvo been extremely
gratifying to you as the first minister
of tho privy council of the Dominion
who was ublu to mnke nu unbroken
journey from ocean to ocean through
our own territory.
The gratification which ns a Cauiulinn
you must lmvo felt, should be enhanced by the recollection that tho
magnificent transcontinental rnilway
line, just completed, owed much to
your advocacy of it in the press, un
the platform, and on tho floor of the
House of Commons, and was in tite
main the great labor of tlie ministry
of which you are so distinguished a
member.
Upon the management of the department whioh you control, to a great
extent depends the rapid and permanent development of the magnificent
resources of our Dominion and ns a
factor in that development the Canadian Paoifio Railway will be of incalculable benefit in placing within reach of
all the rich resources we possess of
minu, forest and prairie.
It is a great pleasure to us to learn
that the principal object of your mission to this province iB made with the
view of settling   certain claims and
f-rievances which for some tiinu past
mve unsettled tho minds of a portion
of the people of British Columbia.
Though we, in this city are no? in any
way affected by the policy of the Dominion government in regard to its
public lands in this remote part of their
domains; still, as inhabitants uf this
province we are anxious that nothing
ahould be left undone to promote harmony amongst our fellow countrymen
and to confirm them in the opinion
that an appeal to the central power
will always result in justice being done
to each and every one, no matter how
distant from the capital may bo his residence, nor how humble may be his
position iu life.
.From the time you liave. been a
member of the government of Canada
every grievance made known to you in
your department became the subject
of immediate enquiry and general satisfaction has followed froin your investigations and we feel confident that
every just demand of the people af
this province will have tliat careful
consideration which has hitherto been
given to* all cases of alleged grievance
which have come under your notice.
The completion of tlie Canadian Pacific Railway is thc placing of thu keystone in the arch of confederation nml
trust tliat your mission to this province uow united by a band of steel to
the eastern part of the J)ominioii may
obliterate the lost vestiges of nny grievance which may exist; and trust that
your great and successful labors in restoring peace and confidence in thu
justico of Canada and Canadians
among the subdued Mutis Qf the
* Ins are universally recognized by
itical friend and foe. And uo less
[liable were the services you rendered in dealing' witli tlie grievances uf
the white settlers in-the territories of
the North-WeBt. The great hardships
you have undergone in accomplishing
tliese objects, braving the perils uf
hundreds of miles of travel across the
jtathlese* prairie, bringing pence and
dealing out impartial justice to the op-
{missed and aggrieved, show that no
abors, no dangers can deter you in
performing tho duties of your high
office when the general welfare of the
Dominion and its people demand the
sacrifice.
We regret tlmt in consequence of
the disastrous tire whioh swept the
young city of Vancouver for a time,
out of existence, we are unable to ox*
tond to you that public and private
hospitality which we would wish but
wu hope that on your next visit we
shall tie iu a position to demonstrate
the high regard which the citizens of
Vancouver in - common with their
follow couiittymon throughout the Dominion unturtain for you.
Tlio city which you now behold is
rmfy tif four weoks'growth nnd though
in size and the character of its buildings it'is, as yet, uo rival of the one
obliterated by fire on tho lSth of Juno
last, still, it will enable you in some
degree to understand tho abiding fnith
wu havu iu its futuro as tho ocenu terminus of the greatest, transcontinental
railway in the world.
Wo wish you to convuy to the government of thu Dominion our heart felt
gratitude for thu timely aid sunt lis
whim the nuWBof uur calamity reached
thein.
Stricken out of existence as our newly burn city was, without a moment's
notice, with our whole population
made suddenly homeless, without shelter or food and almost without clothing, witli scarcely organized mUliici]Hil
institutions, without a treasury and
without tliu means of taxation ur of
drawing upon our future resources, sad
indeed would havo buen thu condition
of many of the four thousand people
composing our population wuru it not
for uie noble response which thu Federal and Provincial governments and
aisteiveitii'H of alio Dominion nude to
our uppealH for aid.
Wu hope that the salubrity of utn'
climate, thu rich resources of our province and thu magnificencu of thu seen*
t'iy may favorably impress you, and
through you our follow citizens of the
east, and lead to that intercommunication which is necessary ill building lip
from the Atlantic to the Pacific a free.

Mr. Kennedy's Answer.
tiniTOK Columbia*, — At a public
meeting held recently in the Skating
Rink in this city I had occasion, in the
course of a few remarks to charge the
provincial secretary with resorting to
corrupt practices for the purpose of securing his election. When I had finished, the dispute between Mr. Bole and
tbo provincial secretary as to who should
spealf first was renewed. While they
were'-frrangling I left the hall. During
my absence the provincial secretary took
the floor and began bis address with a
violent, reckless, and untruthful attack
upon me, without making the least attempt to answer the charges of briliery
which ] hud preferred. When I returned, to the hall Mr. Bole (having
been struck at the time by the improbability of the provinoial secretary's statements, took them down) handed me the
slip of paper on which is written ob follows: "filr. Kennedy offered for *J200 to
support the government through thick
and thin." After reading this I immediately interrupted tbe provincial secretary and asked him to repeat tbe charge.
which he did in a greatly modified form
to the following effect: That I hsd,
u\oithtott havimj the least! claim on the
yorerumeiit, sent Uiem a blackmailing
letter through Mr. Ju. Cunningham, demanding the sum of tiro hundred dollar*,
and stating that if my claim was allowed
I woaltl not be found in opposition to
the government at the general election."
These statements, one and all, I characterized at the meeting as rank falsehood,
and now again I repeat the assertion,
I did not, as Tin: Columbia* has falsely
Btated, deny having written a letter to
Mr. Cunningham, but merely gave a flat
contradiction to the provincial secretary's
wilful and malicious slanders..
Dismissing now the provinoial secretary's wilful, malicious, and unfounded
assertion that I bail offered to sell myself to the government for-tiie sum of
$200,1 will in the* first place take up
that part of his statement—''without har-
iti'j the teaet ctaim on the government,"
ki:.,—-and a little bit of "modern history" will dispose of this: My engagement with the govemment waa to superintend the work contained In the plans
and specifications, for which I was to be
paid a certain percentage on the contract.
The work for which I sent in a bill for
the small sum of $100—which Mr. Cunningham more than once assured me lis
would see paid—wss work which never
was contemplated in the contraot. I
performed the servioe to the oft repeated
satisfaction of Mr. Cunningham, who
was authorised by the government te
supplement anything that was necessary
iu otder to render the new gaol a Complete establishment. The contractor was
bound to dig a reservoir to hold water,
which he did, at a place pointed out by
Mr. Cunningham; my duties ended fas
regarded .procuring water) .when, thst
was done, The provinoial secretary
visited the works immediately after the
reservoir was completed. I drew his
attention to tho fact that the government woirjd be obliged to procure a supply of water from somewhere, rte then
and thore requested me - verbally,- 'and
subsequently by letter, to do everything
possible to procure water. :-Jtfr. €tau*
iiiiigdm and the people of New' Wesfr-1-
luiuster must remember, how I fought
the municipal council and succeeded in
getting water for the gaol. The other
extra work was the laying of pities from
tite gaol to the river, and the officers of
tin' --ani can bear witness to my unburns
and unpleasant labors in connection with
that work of laying the pipes which I
personally conducted through mud and
slush. '
Now theu for tbat "Utter to Mr.
Cunningham" which the provincial secretary boasted at the meeting he would
publish to provo that "that grav haired
old mun (pointing to me) had offered to
sell himself to the government for $200."
Now that you have published it, by sup-
Fraising part of it, what does it prove T
t simply proves, as every one cau see,
tbat John Kobson's charges at the meeting ajiainst me are a baseless tissue of
falsehood and a criminal libel.
James Kennedy,
P.'S.--A part of the Utter which you
omitted to publish reads as follows, viz.i
"Having heard the (Greer) {rial, I was
astonished to find that any government
laying claim to anything like justice or
honor could have been induced to enter
a prosecution on such a slight foundation.
According to all thn testimony produced,
the prosecution should have been the
other way." I hereby give notice to
all concerned that I Intend to prosecute
my claim, for the extra work In connec
tion with the gaol,
[If Mr. Bole took down the prevtn
cial secretary's words, as stated, he is a
most unreliable reporter, for the words
were not Bpoken as represented. Thi
Columbian'!* report, referring to this,
was as follows: "It was well known that
ho (Mr, Kennedy) had Weu employed as
superintendent of the building of the
gaol. Wheu that work had been com
pletetl he sent in a claim amounting to
about $200, whioh tiie government could
not entertain. This claim was accompanied by a blackmailing letter which
stated that if the money was paid be
would not lie found iu opposition. (Sensation, and "That's a lie1" from Kennedy)." The Guardian's report is as
follow: "You remember he (Mr. Kennedy) was employed to superintend the
building of the gaol; and while in that
position be wrote a letter to Mr, James
Cunning hum to say if the government
would pay bim. a certain sum of money
lie would not oppose the.government at
the next election. * * * Mr. Robson
repeated the statement with reference to
the letter, and Mr. Kennedy said "It'i a
e," Mr. Kobson—I have the letter and
ill send it here. Mr, Kennedy was
tiling to null himself, body and soul,
11*—how much do you think?—-two hundred dollars!" It will be perceived that
•■pither of thcsi: reports sustains Mr.
Kennedy's veit>ion of tbe affair, and we
leave tin* public to judge whether or not
Mr. Kennedy's letter, which we pub-
lishcd on Wednesday, bears the construction pur upon it by the provincial
'-i-retat-y. Wfcethir bis cURm for extra
pay is just nr not w-mIo not know: tbe
provincial secretary says it is not just,
ami Mr. Kennedy says it Is. Hut we
must sny that bis letter contained the
throat that unless the account was satis*

Winnipeg, Jply 5.—The Cree Chief,
Poundmaker, who figured so prominently
in the rebellion, particularly against
Col. Otter's force at Cut Knife Creek,
died yesterday at Crowfoot's camp, near
lilackfoot Crossing, and was buried today. Poundmaker was discharged from
the Stoney Mountain penitentiary with
other rebel prisoners last spring, antl
was thon in good health. He is related
to Crowfoot oy marriage, and had been
on a visit to him of some duration.
About a month ago he took Ul, but no
fatal result was looked for until yesterday when he burst a blood vessel and
died in a few minutes.
Ottawa, July 13.- A train carrying
five hundred Orange excursionists from
Kingston, on the Grand Trunk, after
passing Cumberland this morning, ran
Into aa obstruction placed on the tra-jlf
on a sharp curve on an embankment,
fifty feet high, with the river at the bottom. The train was not derailed, as
the engineer saw the obstruction in time
to reduce speed somewhat. It was,
however, a very narrow escape. The
Orangemen claim it was the work of
their enemies.
London, July 13.— Labouehere writes
to the daily New* urging Gladstone not
to resign on the ground tbat he has a
majority on everything except the Irish
Suestion, and that tbe Unionists are not
torally to support a general vote of
want of confidence in him.
Parnell has written a letter iu which
he says the statement of Lord Hartington that the Irish party and the National J-eague are in union with American
Fenians is . untrue. I know nothing
whatever of any Fenian organization in
Ireland or England beyond what I have
learned from the newspapers. I have
never had any communication with the
leaders of such an organisation or accepted any alliance with them. I do not
even know who the leaders are. No union
of the National League and Fenians has
ever been proposed. If suob proposal
had ever been made I should never have
consented. I have always successfully
endeavored to keep the National League
within the strictest bounds of legality.
In spite of the unblushing falsehoods
which have partially and temporarily
frustrated the moderate aspirations of
Ireland the Irish people will continue to
maintain a peaceable and legal aspect,
declining to afford any pretext to Lord
Hartington or his Tory allies to resort
to the brutalities of coercion.
An arrangement has been arrived at
by which Lord Silisbury wilt accept
Lord Hartingtou'a home rule policy,
which involves the maintenance of Uie
full powers of the Imperial parliament.
By It the powers conferred on local councils in Ireland are delegated, not surrendered, by parliament, which body
reserves the right to control and revise
the actions of the councils. The appointment of judges and local administration are centred iu the imperial
authorities. Lord Hartington is reluctant to join the Conservative ministry,
although he has pledged himself to support the coercion and general policy of
the Conservatives,
In Gladstoniau circles confidence is
expressed that the premier will resign.
Gladstone will hold a conference with
his colleagues on Saturday. The Parnellites' say-they will never accept Lord
Hartington'a scheme, and will fight and
wait until they have secured the passage
of the full Gladstoniau measures.
Mr. T, M, Healy, in an address to the
meeting,, said that although Irishmen
were -disappointed-at the result of tlie
electious they should uot be despondent.
The defeat, be said, was a temporary
od«. A million -tleoton bad written
home rule oa their polling papers as
against the unholy existing triple alliance. A coalition government. Mr.
Healy contended, could not last three
months.

__ The Britisli Empire.
The recent opening of the Colonial
and Indian Exhibition is mado the occasion by the Loudon Times of nn iu
terciting account of the growth of the
colonial empire of Great Britain. The
following ia the substance of tho article: ■ This unparalleled empire began
hesitatingly some 300 years ago, with
a precarious footing on an area of 40, •
000 square miles, amid a population of
Bavagcs; it culminated to-day with an
area of 11,000,000 square miles and u
population, including feudatories, of
■omething like 270,000,000, one-seventh
of the land surface of the globe and
one-sixth of its inhabitants, and that
excluding the mother country. Lot us
endeavor briefly to recall the gmwth
of this world-wide empire.
EXGIANl)HBR8BLFORIQItfAtIA' A"*OI.OSY
We need not begin our story with
the remarkable colonization enterprises
of Phcenioians, Greeks and Romans,
nor need we evon occupy space with
contrasting the medueval trading stations established by Venice in the
Mediterranean and its olt'-ihouts, with
the colonies of tho lust 400 year.-..
England itself was fur three centuries
a Unman colony, and an important
and stirring one, having, howevor,
more analogy with India than with
Canada or Australia. English Britain,
if wo may use the term, began as a
colony, but a colony uf (he true English type; tho emigrants who came
with Hengist and Horsa from the Elbe
and the Weser came to find a new
home and remain in it. With more ur
less indiscriminate slaughter of the
aborigines, a method which has been
only too faithfully followed by their
successors, they cleared the country
and built their homestead and founded
their cities. For more than, a thousand
yean did'these Teuton colonists go on
developing the resources of their island
home, receiving fresh and vigorous
additions, always of essentially the
same stock, beforo they began to look
out westwards and southwards for
fresh islands and other continents to
harry and to settle and to nourish into
powerful states.
TARDY BEGINNINGS 01' CONQUEST
The Portuguese and Spaniards, and
even the frenoh, were in the field long
before England. Spain hnd a settle-.
ment in Dominica as early as 1493, and
Vaco de Gama reached India in 1483.
Within very few years India and South
America had their Portuguese and
Spanish viceroys. In 1534 Jacques
Cartier made his famous voyage up tho
St. Lawrence, taking possession of the
country in the name of thc French
sovereign. True, Cabot discovered
Newfoundland and the mainland of
North America in 1497, but he, like
other early western navigators, simply
regarded the new world as a barrier on
the way. to India. It was this latter
land of fabulous riches that was the
goal of the infant naval enterprise of
England for many years after Cabot's
discovery. The Portuguese monopolized tho routes by the sou theru seas,
and England had not yet a navy to
cope with its rival. The tirst effective
English settlement on the island cannot be dated earlier thnn 1023, long
before whieh Virginia had beon planted ana Jamestown founded. True, in
1580 the British flag wus planted in
the West India island of Tobago, but
that island was not effectively occu
pied by England till 1703. Meantime,
some roving Englishmen had in 1005
planted a cross in Barbados inscribed
"James, king of England and of this
island," though there was no actual
settlement till 1G25. Barbados is one
of the two or three British West India
islands that; never changed hands.
After all, however, Bermuda may fairly
claim to be considered the earliest of
eiisting English colonies, and it waB
colonized both from Virginia aud England shortly, after 1000. But later
during thu seventeenth century the
growth of bur colonial possessions was
slow, if we except the New England
Sates and the settlements on the east
American coast to the south. Leaving
these last out of view, as they no
lunger belong to us, our colonies at
tho close of the century were few and
scattered compared with the enormous
territories which Portugal and Spain,
France and Holland, were endeavoring
to drain of their wealth.
TWO HUNDRED YBARS AlJO.
At the end of the seventeenth century, besides Newfoundland and Bermudas, and a few factories on the Wost
African coast and in India, of the present colonial empire we had possession,
more or less stable, of Jamaica, Barbados, St. Christopher's Nevis, Turk's
island, Antigua, Montserrat, Anguilla,
Virgin islands, Bahamas and St. Helena out in the Atlantic. The total
area of these did not much exceed 00,-
000 square miles, for *our African and
Indian settlements were little more
than stations. Even if we added -nich
parts of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick as were not occupied by France,
the total area could scarcely be more
than 80,000 square miles. During the
tirst. half of. the eighteenth century, if
we accept the confirmation to Great
'Britain* of the ten North Amorican
colonies just .mentioned, and one nr
two of the West India islands already
included, the «n)y acquisition of importance as ,a foreign posses-urni was
Gibraltar (1704), and that not as u
colony but as a strategical station. A
period of comparative quieseuce prevailed during these fifty years previous
to the outbreak of the grout und long-
continued struggle between England
and France for supremacy nn the sen*,
if not on lund.
THE PERIOD OV THE FltfeNOH WARM.
During the last  forty year*, of the
eighteenth century, on thu othor hand
the broad foundations of   Englaml'H
Empire  beyond  the seas  were (irmly
laid; subsequent operations have mainly been in the way of development uml
consolidation.   The great struggle between  England Hnd France for supremacy beyond Europe moy be said tn
hnve begun simultaneously in India
and Canada.    On the latter field it resulted la the capitulation of (Quebec in
1759, followed four /ears later by the
cession of the whole of Canada; so
that Kngland was virtually mist rem of
thc whole of North America., In 1770
the Decltriflun of Independence was
HuraetLaod in 17** England,'hsd to
k£*IThMseU to tht Im* of l.y far tie
rant -ratwUe half ol fcer-dominions in
America.   The extenfuf our loss may
be Mtimated from tho fact thut our
trade with the United Suite is equal
to the total of.our colonial trado, Wtw*
ina Indie out of ooMnt, nnd amounts
to one-third of our entire foreign cm-
meroe.   With such a f»t hetorn us,
can we regard the Independence 'if the
statos aa really a lose after nll?   1»
the aame year as Canada became an
English uos^islon the islands of Do*
ndt-flMiiA Bfc-Viwin; ■«£ Tobago were added to onr West India
possessions, followed in 1797 by the
surrender of Trinidad to Abercromby
by the Spaniards. Alt hough-Commodore Byron took possession of the
Falkland islands in 1705, no effective
establishment was formed thore till
1833. In 1783-0 Britisli Honduras
was acquired by treaties; in 1787
Sierra Leone was ceded by the native
chiefs; while in 1788, not quite a century ago, tho not very promising foundation of the great Australian group
of colonies was laid by the establishment of a small convict station at
Botany Bay. Turning to the East wu
find Malacca captured from the Dutch
in 1795, though it did not finally be-,
come English till 1823. Fenag was
colonized iu 1785, and province Wel-
lesley in 1798. Much more important
wns the capture of Oeylo,n-from the
same once supreme colonial powor in
1790. The battle of Plassoy was
foughl in 1757, and within about half
a century thereafter, through the
gefiiuS of Olivo and Hastings iii^l
Wellesley, English supremacy was
virtually established, directly or indirectly, over a great part of tho Indian peninsula. Bengal was ceded iu
1705, and Madras conquered in,1792-
1800, having between them an area
estimated at 290,000 square miles, and
a population of 55,000,000,
THB   I.IONS PAW STILL STRBTI'HBD OUT.
Thus, then, during tho latter half of
the eighteenth century we had succeeded in rapidly increasing our foreign ' possessions, by something like
0,500,000 square miles, reckoning tho
whole of Australia ua virtually annexed. During the present century wo
have been able to increase this area by
by about one-third, half of it, at least,
in India. While, during the last
eighty-six years, we have lleeii extending, und * confirming our hold ovor India, and while' we have acquired one
or two really important additions to
our colonial possessions, it will be
seen, as we' have#said, that our chief
work hus been to develop uud consolidate the acquisitions of the latter half
of tho eighteenth century. In 1806
the Dutch were compelled to hand
over to us their possessions in South
Africa, which by the formation of the
Natal colony in 1838, and other subsequent annexations, have boon extended far beyond their original boundaries.. In 1807 wei .■ captured tbu tiny
islet of' Heligoland, and threo years
later, 1810, Mauritius capitulated, our
possession of the islnnd being confirmed by the' Treatrof Paris, 1814. A
year later, 1815, we acquired the
Ionian Islands by treaty, only to give
them to Greece some fifty years after,
and in the same year we established
our naval station in Ascension. We
all remember the excitement over the
occupation of Cyprus in 1878.
IN OUR OWN TIMES.
The British North Borneo company
was incorporated by royal charter in
1881. We havo hardly yet recovered
from the excitement of raising the
British flag over Southern New Guinea,
the Niger mouths, and Bechuunu land
in 1883, whilo at this very moment
our soldiers und our civil servants aro
l)UBy getting into working order the
extensive territory of Upper Burmah,
proclaimed English on the first day of
the preseut year. This last annexation, however, belongs rather to the
record of our dominion in India, which
has advanced so rapidly that tlio 200,-
000 square miles, and the 55,000,000
inhabitants of 1800 have grown to
something liko 1,500,000 square miles
and 280,000,000 of a population.
Thus, then, while the beginnings of
the greatest colonial empire on record
go back somo 300 years, by far the
greater proportion of our foreign possessions have been acquired during the
last 120 years. Thc statesmen under
whom this great and widely scattered
empire was acquired and built up,
never entertained a doubt.as tothe
necessity of England, if she was to
maintain her position among the nations, in taking this method of upholding iier naval supremacy, of securing
her influence in every quarter of the
globe, of finding outlets for her rapidly
increasing population, and of keeping
all rivals out of tho field. Of tho nine
millions or so of square miles over
which our empire beyond the sea
tends, something like six and a half
millions aro in latitudes which are iu
the main perfectly suited for European
colonization.
PRODUCTS OF TUB KMWKE.
Comparo our foreign. possessions
with those of any other colonial power
—France, Spain, Portugal, .Holland,
aud even Germany. Of the posses*
sions of ull these countries, French
Algeria and perhaps New-Caledonia
are the only ones in which acclimation
for tho European is at all possible.
Nearly every product which the earth
is capable of yielding we can obtain iu
abundance within the borders of our
own possessions. At home we still
have plenty of coal and iron; Canada,
Australian, New Zealand, India, can
scud us ample stores of overy variety
of grain; animal pnnlucts of all kinds
Canada, Australia, and the Capo eau
supply iu abundance; ten, collee, sugar, cut ton, and other tropical and subtropical products wo can tlraw from
both the old aud the nuw world; of
gold thero is still no lad;; the tin
mines of Tasmania aro already /amou.t,
and both copper and tin nro piotitaUe
products of New Si uth Wales; we
have diamond mines iu .South Africa;

figure prominently in the exhibition.
Should our manufactures bo paralyzed,
Canada might supply us with blimkets
and pianos, Now Zealand with tweeds,
Victoria with onrrlaueB, New South
Wales with shoes, India and Malta
with jewelry.
The methods by which England has
gained for horself this enviable position among the nations of the earth
have been (.'saentinlly tho Biime as
those by which our ancestors gained
a footing in our island h»nie, which
they havo raised to the prmid position
of it mother of nations. As a matter
of fuet, keeping India out nf view,
about one half (3,800,000 square mile--)
of our colonial possessions have been
