VOLUME 1
KfEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 28, 1880.
NUMBER 25
guilg gbritteW Cohinibi-m
flu-unlay Kviuliiij, Annulan. 1WW.
It is stated tlint the Chinese lmvo
been notified ,tluit they must leave
Alnskn. On tlie Hii of this month
u meeting was held nmong the miners of Juneau who determined to
expel the Ohinese employed on
Douglas Island by the Alaska Mill
ing & Mining Co. The inaiuiger of
the company was notified of this
decision, but refused to discharge
tho celestials. The miners then
forcibly drove them off to the wharf
and endeavored to put them on
board the steamship ldilio for
Seattle. Tlie captain refused to
tjtke thein. The miners then conducted .the ; Ohinese, about 80 in
number,'to ttvo schoonera bound
for !Wrange|,| jput S—hf on board
with sufficient rice to feed them
during1 the vojtige. I When last
seen the two schooners were beating about with'head winds and hod
not got out (Qf sight of Juneau.
When the Chinamen reach Wrnngel
they will find no employment, and
it is diflicult to conjecture what
will become of thom. This performance is a repetition of what
took place last winter in Seattle and Tiieoma and some other
places nearer the centre of civilization than Alaska. /*! ,
Under Which system?
Mr. Oolby, a member of the Canadian parliament, ina recent lecture,
declared that the Canadian system
of government,, which is substantially a duplicate of the British system, having an elected senate instead of a house of lords, a governor general instead of the queen, is
politically superior to that of tlie
United States. The British system
is based on ministerial responsibility, aud is so captivating to some
Americans that Democratic Senator
Pendleton onco proposed to givo
members of the cabinet seats on the
lloor of congress with a voice in debate, but no vote. The natural argument against the wisdom of this
change is as follows: The theory of
the English constitution is that the
cabinet must bo in harmony with
the commons. The cabinet is but
the executive of tho commons. The
English cabinet must, therefore, be
in political accord with its creator
or resign, and as a matter of fact,
the members of the cabinet have,' as
a rule been members of the commons. Under these relations, the
life of tho English cabinet ceases
when parliamentary support fails.
But under our written constitution,
the executive and legislative branches of government are mado distinctly independent of each other, instead
of the identity of thc cabinet and
commons. Under our constitution
wo nay have an executive and cabinet not in political accord with
congress, and we have had two
houses of congress with equal lawmaking powers aud responsibilities,
but in utter political hostility. Wai
it practicable to substitute, by this
change, the British system of government for our own, the senate
would be reduced to tho level of the
English house of lords. If we gave
cabinet officers a voice in debute
without a vote, we would only intensify the natural jealousy between
the executive und congress, foV tho
fidelity and impartiality of uu executive officer who hnd warmly opposed a law in debate would be
naturally disputed or impeached.
No practical advantage could result,
for at present cabinet oflicers have
tho right of speech beforo committees and the right of written communication to either house We
do not sea why all states might not.
with advantage, adopt the provision
of tho Nebraska constitution, recited in our dispatches yesterday
morning: "That At a general election immediately preceding the expiration of a term of a United
States senator from this state the
electors shall, by ballot, expross
their preference for some person for
the office of United States senator."
Of course the implication 'of this
proviiion is tliat the legislature
would be bound by the populnr preference expressed at the polls, but
thus far this provision has been a
dead letter because no aspirant has
dared to ask for au expression of
{ireference. * The provision is worth
laving in every constitution, so that
if the people cared to express a
preference, their legislature could
not pretend that it had not been instructed.—Portland Oretjonian.

Saturday Evening, August 38, lKKti.
Our local cotemporary tliis inorn-
ing had another fit of C. P. R. and
Vancouver. These attacks have
lately become so frequent tlmt thoy
are viewed with comparative indifference. The symptoms are usually
venom and senseless utterances
which no person can comprehend.
This morning, for example, the organ reiterates its opinion tliat if the
branch railway to this city is extended to Vancouver, it will be tho
city's ruin. We have never heard
any person express such an opinion
unless he was interested in P'-rt
Moody. 13ut it is not Port Moody
or Vancouver that the people of tliis
city should seek to build up, but
New Westminster, It would be ill
the interest of this city to secure
railway connection with all the
cities and settlements within reach,
and we ar# in favor of railway connection with both Port Moody nntl
Vancouver.
Misapprehending the Facts.
The Oregonian (Portland) quotes
from the Toronto Mail to the eftect
that the Ontario government unjustly refuses to enforce the provisions
of the Scott Act because it receives
no part of the fines. This the
Ongonian consider a poor plea,
and equal to saying that the police
might refuse to enforce tlie law because tines were not distributed
among members of the force. Our
Portland cotemporary entirely misapprehends the point at issue and,
consequently, falls into an error.
The Scott Act is a federal law, and
all fines imposed for infractions of
it go iuto the federal treasury. But
it has been found in practice that
tlie act cannot be efficiently, enforced without special machinery,
and the question arrises, By whom
shall tliis machinery be provided?
Ontario says that as the law is u
federal law aiid tho fines go the federal treasury, it is manifestly the
duty of the federal authorities to
enforce it. If the federal government will give up the fines, the
Ontario government is quite willing
to enforce the law. The attitude of
Ontario on this question strikes us
as being entirely just and free from
censure.
Ground ror Alarm.
It is much to be feared that there
has been very great criminality or
criminal carelessness in the administration of timber limits and large
tracts of land in the Northwest.
Some time ago returns were brought
down in tlie house of commons
showing the quantities of timber
and other lands granted, and these
returns set forth the unpleasant fuet
that a great deal of this land fell
into the hands of members of parliament, or wus obtained through
the influence of members for relatives or political friends. Tliese
valuable timber limits, up to the
year 1885, comprised about 16,-
000,000 acres, and were given without public competition and without
the government receiving anything
like adequate compensation. While
tlie province of Ontario obtained
$1,785,000 for timber licenses covering 7,980 square miles, the federal government lias issued licenses
covering 25,000 square miles without deriving therefrom any revenue
worth speaking of. One can hardly
see why these timber limits should
have been disposed of privately by
orders-in-council, without competi
tion. It is a system that can
hardly be in the interest of the
country, and it opens the door for
all sorts of corruption. The spectacle of members of parliament
grabbing for timber limits and townships for themselves und their political friends under such circumstances
is not very creditable, and the system should lie changed without delay. There is another practice open
to serious objection, and which is
indulged in to an alarming extent:
we refer to the practice of providing
fat and easy billets to the sons and
sonB-in-law and other relatives of
members of parliament. These
tilings are directly contrary to the
spirit of the independence of par
liament act. A man will be just as
likely to be influenced improperly
by a timber license or by receiving
a fat office for his son or son-in-law
us by becoming interested in a government contract, and it is not safe
to put such temptations in the way
of legislators, Instances are mentioned where members of the house
of commons have received enormous
sums for timber limits acquired
without competition. Mr. ,T, 0.
Rykert, for exnmple, paid tho government $2,504 for a timber limit
in Cypress Hills, which he sold for
$100,000. If this limit had been
put up to public competition the
government would have received the
money that hus gone into the speculator's pockets. Tliere is danger
that members who tamper with
timber limits and official appointments will quickly lose their independence and become mere tools in
the government's hands. They do
not represent the people, Imt their
own porsonul interests,

scoffed at law, conspired against organized government and recklessly attacked social ordor. The end of their
diabolical teachings was generally murder, arson and pillage. They plotted

Juneau, Aug. 18.—Some miners arrived from Youkon report moderately
good bar diggings, but the water is too
high to work them ut present. They
came for provisions, and start back in
a few days. They report thnt one of
Bishop Seghers party got drowned
while crossing the lake. The Ancon
arrived last night and landed all the
Chinamen tliat they drove out last
week. Troadwell has a full gang of
Indians at work in his mine at present,
but it is hard to tell how long thoy
will remain as the saloon-keepers are
constantly selling them whiskey. There
is a general fight in the Indian quarters overy night; if this is to keep up
much longer there will be no Indians
to work in tlie mine. Treodwell will
shut down the mine before ho will urn-
ply any of the mob that drove the
Chinamen off. When Governor Swine-
ford arrived here last week from Washington, it was reported to him that one
of the chiefs of the Chilcoot Indians
had insulted Bishop Seghers und party
on his way to Youkon. The governor
took 12 men from Juneau, got the
Idaho to tnke him mid party to Chilcoot, and on nrrivnl there invited tho
chief on bonrd under pretense that the
governor wished to see him. When
the chief came ou board he wns put in
doable irons nnd put in the ship's hold,
nnd token to Sitka, where he wns
brought before the commissioners who,
after hearing all the evidence, discharged the chief. No wonder the
mobs drive out Chinamen nnd do what

A Woman's Conw at Sea.
Captain Wallace's niece, a young
English girl, married a sea captain and
went in lu's sailing vessel with her
husband, visiting mnny countries with
him. Ou her first trip, when she was
yet a young bride, thore was n mutiny
and her husband wns wounded or
knocked senseless in his cabin. The
suilora were about to spring down tho
compnnion-way into the cabin, when
tho young woman burred the way, pistol in hand, and promised to shoot the
firat man who moved toward her. She
held thom thus at bay till wrath burned out nnd the mutiny was at nu end.
On the next voyago they were shipwrecked, and this brave-hearted gill,
with her young baby, was lashed in
the rigging, and remained there for
several days before they were rescued.
They liad nothing to eut, and the
mother's natural food for hor/jhild
wns exhausted. By some means a can
of meat wus fished up from the ship
and tho child fed on tliis until it was
all gone, nnd the little one about to
starve. But the mother put her teeth
into hor bund, between the thumb nud
forefinger, and bit n gash iuto her own
flesh, from which tlie blood flowed.
Tho child sucked this, and thnt night
the almost dying crew and the brave
sailor-wife were rescued. —JV. O, Picayune,
A Princess with a Heart.— The
engagement of Prince Alexander, of
Bulgaria, and the Princess Victoria,
oldest unmarried daughter of the
crown prinoe, is broken. It was
really an affair of the heart. The Bulgarian ruler is a wonderfully handsomo
man, though his features betray the
peasant blood which flows in his
veins. Tall, dark-eyed and well-proportioned, it is but natural that he
should move a maiden's heart. The
princess admired him und confided in
her mother, who favored her inclination. The emperor und crown prince,
obdurate from the first, opposed her
wish. The heroic conduct of tho Bat*
tenberger, hia bravery and skill amid
the ronr of battle, served only to fan
the flame of thu princess' love; and no
heart beat more rapidly at news of hia
victory that of the royal girl in the
palaco of Berlin. Frienda pleaded for
her, the queen of Roumania interceded in her behalf, but nil in vain. Hor
heart wu sacrificed, her wish unfulfilled. It is even whispered that the
prince will be stricken from the ranks
of the Gorman army, where hu now
holds the position of major general, if
he does nut (jive her no. -Berlin letter

White Bronze Monuments.—White
Bronze Is a comparatively new -substance,
and lias come into targe use, rapidly, for
special purposes iu tbis country. It lias
been found to be so well adapted for statuary and monuments, tbat companies
liavo been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich,, Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
thew companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws ofl" a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against tho
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide whicli
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, nlthougli the film is bo thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place. —-Boston Journal of Commerce. Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

The Confederation Life.
The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution -will be fon ml
in another column.   The facts revealed
in tlie accounts and   he Directors' report
thoroughly justify th/ ecominms which
the shareholders nresmt bestowed upon
the management.   Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has dn- '
clined   to   embark   upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the work*
ing expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and IS per cent.   A point attesting tho soundness of the finances of i
the Company is thc fact that the interest
income   is  unlliuient to pay the death
claims—-which in a company of the age of
tlie Confederation Life is something to he
proud of.   The :1.1s ts and liabilities are

thc disestablishment and disendow-
ment ni the church in Franco whicli it
ii thought will bo tho result of tho
pope's refusal to recede frnm thu post- ;
tion lit,> has tnkon in relation to China
London, Any.   27.—The  reply  of j
the czar to tho  address sent him   by
the   Zankoll'  government   is  rigidly
worded, although ho promises to protect Bulgaria.   Tho porto-lms received
replies from Uie various powers  to its !
announcement of. Prince Alexander's
deposition.    Wllh   Iho   exception  of j
Italy, the ilillerent governments mere-
ly note tlie contents of   the   circular, '
reserving all ulterior communicalinns.
The reply of Italy, in addition, rcco»* j
nizes 'tlie   ptfno's    right   to   protest |
against the illegality of   Prince Alexander's deposition.
Vibnna,  Aug.   27.-—The    circular |
said to have   been   issiltm by M. De [
fliers, and published this morning, is :
authoritatively   declared  to be apocryphal.    It h said  to havo   emanated
fr.nn the Kieiuveincr Taijblttti.

the railway carriage, was I'ivon an ova- '
tion by thousands  of  Germnns   and :
Poles who raised   enthusiastic   cheers
and indulged in other joyful   demon-
stratton,    On alighting tho prince was
presented with u bouquet  by   a little;
girl, amid enthusiastic cheering.    The j
crowd escorted Hie prince to his cfli- \
riago, when a  journalist   delivered it
short address of weleoino, concluding
with tho words, " Perish the traitorsl' .
Then the people escorted him to his |
hotel.   The town is brilliantly illumi- !
natud to-night.    Alexander will proceed to Bros ion to-morrow,
San Fiuxui.soo, Aug. 27.—Sailed, !

forma, Astoria
London, Aug. 27.—In the house of
commons Sexton challenged Lord Ran- j
dolph Churchill to deny that laud pur* j
chase   formed a part of the  govern- i
incut's scheme,    (Cheers.) Mr. Cham-
burlain, he continued, was master of '■
the uaeful art of suppressing any part
of Ids case   which did   not serve his
purpose.    Such a practice was not cal- j
cuhited   to   give a politician a perma- t
iunit advantiitfo in the eyes ol English ,
gentlemen,   (Cheers.)    The    Iin tish ■
"ovornuient party was   answerable for
tho wrongdoing of the Irish landlords. !
Mr. Gladstone hud made thu landlords
the most brilliant oiler they   had   over
had.    When  that   idler was   spurned
tuid used to bring discredit upon tbe '
iiflerer, there was tio obligation in ur- '
der tn   renew   it. ' Tf thero were any
more tall; about honor Mr. Gkdatuiie
could   doubtless say, as  Lady   Tuasle
said tu Charles Surface, " Had we not '
better leave honor out of the question?''
(Laughter.)   Certainly Mr Gladstone
would   never   m ike Mr, Chamberlain j
judge or custodian of his honor.   Mr. |
Sexton believed that the  Liberals of
the future would not bo a party to the
plundering of Ireland    (Ohoem.) Mr. i
CJItidRtupcs land purchaso scheme was
si-cured by every nanny uf the public ■
revenue of Ireland.    This was a secur- ,
ity of  £7,000,000  youi-lv to cover a !
charge of  £2,000,000   yearly.   True
union would havu resulted   from  the
adopti'ii of tliat policy, and no unnatural combination ,if intriguing politicians could loin; ili'lty that union. The
appointing ■ f  Genunil   lluller   would
not   proniot-   sucn union, but   would
give Ireland ibe cliitract'ai- uf a foreign I
state-   Cltiiojl.crlaiii, despite the condition uf li-'-hiud, was content tu wait ■
at long as the government wished.   If ,
Chamberlain had lived in the time of <
Nuru he would   have   played  second |
liddle   while    Rain a   was    burn ing. I
(Ureal    laughter,)   Continuing,    he |
said the proposed   commissions would
be productive of n., benefit, and wuuld
only delay dealing with pressing questions.   The policy of Chamberlain was
to oppose any amendment which cuuld '
net an a vote uf  censure  ngainst   the
government,   while   L u-d    Randolph I
Churchill's   Irish   policy was to draw
bills on thu future which ho did mil
Intend to honor,   (Cheers.)   In   cun* |
elusion, Sexton Baid that thu   Parnell-
Ites wuuld counsel  Irishmen to stand
by each oihcr ami nut liu intimidated
by thu Fear  of  combinations.    Thoy \
would  jciiiintl   Irishmen   thnt Glad* j
stoiic'.s great olf-nt   to promote ponce !
betweeii-'twii c lUiitnes is supported by .
a million and a quarter of British pen- |
pie; and that lhe majority against it
consisted of vote*, only, imt   of men, i
They would du everythtna possible in
fairness ami justice tu promote  peace,
but thuy conld not  make  thomsi-lves
traitors to Ireland liy asking the   people durinu tlio coming winter tu sticri-
lico ili'-tiisulves in order lo furnish   arguments   to    iheir,   ruin.   (Cheers.)
■Scxlou   spoko   fiir  nearly two hours.
Chamberlain entered thohouso shortly
after Sexton commenced and remained
until he finished.

ment warn rejected by a vute of IJ04 to j
181,     Tfaitiiigtmi  and   Chamberlain
and tho  ITiiioiiists supported tho gov
eminent. Wm. Vernon   Harcuurt ab- I
staining from voting, and Mr. Morley

nmuigemoiifcof the result caused little
excitement.
S\N   tfllANOlHUO,   Aug.   27,— News i
1msboon received hm Fofci-opittihivHki,
j on the Siberian coast, to the cflect that
during the past winter numerous pieces
■ of wood havo been thrown upon Commodore   Islands,  tiff   Potropauluvslu.
■ Nothing cuuld be made out of them,
with the exception of 2 ship's hatches,
and it is believed these came from the
wreck of the missing whaler Amethyst,
wliich left hero on February 12th of
last year. This is regarded as conclusive evidence of the loss of the vessel.
: The vessel was worth §10,000, and was
owned by Capt. Joseph Knowliuid, of
: this city.
;    Lonuon, Aug. m.—Gladstone's bro:
! churcs  on  the Irish question is published   to-day.    It  contains 52 pages
and is similar in oxculleiice of its style
| to  Gladstone's  pamphlet on the Bulgarian atrocities.    At the outset Gladstone compares it with the apology he
wrote on his change of attitude regarding the   Irish church, "but," he cou-
tinucs, "it presents a case above such
change, and   I   have unly to point out
the   mode iu  which my language and I
conduct weru governed by uniformity j
of principle.   1 have simply followed i
the various stages by which thu groat |
quostion of autonomy for Ireland has
been   brought  to a condition of ripeness  for   practical legislation."   Thu
brochure is under 2 heads.    The tirst
ia a history uf an idea in which Mr.
Gladstone  summarizes  the following
conditions under whicli alone, in his
view,  it wuuld become possible:   (1)
The   abandonment   uf   the hope that
parliament  could   serve as a possible
legislative instrument for Ireland; (2)
the unequivocal aud constitutional de- '
maud uf the Irish members;   (*1) the
possibility of dealing with Scotland in '
a   similar way in circumstances equal j
and equally clear. Gladstone then pro?
ceeds  to  defend  himself   frum  the .
charge of having sprung tho homo rule
measure upon his friends.    Replying
to  the   charges  of   Hartington  and |
Chamborlain that he had conceived thc '
idea precipitately, and  to their charge
of having concealed it unduly, he denies that it is the duty of a minister to I
make   known   even  tu his colleagues
every idea furming in his mind, wliich
would   lend to confuse and retard in-
stead of aid business.    He continues: j
"What  is  true is  that   I  had not
publicly and   in  principle condemned
it, aud also that   1   had mentally con- !
siderod it; but neither had I adopted
it for  the very simple reaauti that it
was not prepared for adoption ur rojec-
tion."   Gladstone  then  goes  on  to I
point   out  that during all the many
years of Iub public life the alternatives
were  repeal   on une hand and on the
other the relief  of   Ireland from her
grievances,    "it was not possible," hu
says,   "at  that time to prognosticate
how in a short time parliament would ;
stumble ami almost writhe under many
accumulating burdens, or to pronounce
that it would eventually prove incapa j
ble'of  meeting the vnnts of  Ireland. |
Evidently  theru   was   a period when
Irish patriotism, as represented by I)'- ;
Cunnull, looked   favorably   upon this :
alternative   policy, aud   had nu fixed j
conclusion as to the absolute necessity
fur huiiie government, and seemed to j
allow that measures founded in justice \
tu   Ireland   might  possibly suffice to
meet  the  necessity of the case."   It :
was as  early as 1871, Mr. Gladstone
says, that he took thu lirst step towards
placing  the  controversy on   its true
basis.   He opposed My, Bull's scheme
because   the  alternative observed iu i
last paragraph had not been exhausted, but  even nt thai time he did nut
close the door against a recognition of
the question under a different! statu of
things,   instead  of denouncing  the I
idea of homo rule as one in its essence
destructive of tho unity of the empire,
in the following words ho accepted the
assurance given tu the country; "Lot
ine du thc promoters of this movement I
the fullest  justice.   Always speaking
under the conviction, as they must emphatically declare, and  as I fully beliovo, that the union of the kingdom
under her majesty is to be maintained,
but that parliament is not hi bu broken
up."   Mr.  (lludstuiio  accepted   with
qualification the principle that home
rule had no necessary connection x?\$]i
separation,    When Mr. Shaw succeed- j
ed tu thu homo rule leadership in lo80 !
Mr. Cladstone bailed  his speeches lis,
showing an   evident disposition to respect the  functions of the house <»f ■
commons and tho spirit of the coilstitu- <
tion,   In 1881, at Guild Hall, he an- '
nuiinccd   that   he   would   hail  with
satisfaction and delight, any measure of
local govornmont for Ireland,   Coining to the electoral campaign tif 1885,
Mr. </ladstone says his great object
was to do nothing to hinder the prosecution of the question by the Tories,
but to use his best efibrts to impress
the public with the importance ami
urgency of   the question.    It, was iu
this spirit his Jtfidlpthiau address was
written,     The Irish question was severed frum tlio general Subject of local
govornmont, and it was pointed uut
that it wuuld prubably throw into the 1
shade all   uther  important measures
whieh wure ripoj    Once ripe', tha timu
for action  had  como, just as if it I
had beon a corn field, and we wore
not to wait till it was over-ripe.   Thu
healing of the  inveterate sore would
only become inure dillietilt, thu growth
of   building   hopes was mure liable tu
be checked and paralyzed by political
frosts.

"The chief objects of niy tour are to i

aud to gratify thoir imtat-ioti and hat- J
