current Events and Opinions.
When men began to bury their
dead they did so in the firm 'oelief
in nnother life, which life was regarded us tho exact counterpart of
this present one. Tlie unsophisticated savage, holding thnt in that
equal sky his faithful dog would
bear him company, naturally enough
liad the dog in question killed and
buried with him, iu order that it
might follow liim to the happy
hunting-ground. Clearly, you can't
hunt without your arrows and your
tomahawk; so the flinty weapons
and the trusty bow accompanied
thoir owner in his new dwelling-
place. The wooden haft, the deer
sinew bow-string, the perishable
articles of food and drink, have long
since decayed within the damp
tumulus; but the harder stone and
earthenware articles have survived
till now to tell the story of that
crude and simple early faith, Very
crude and illogical, indeed, it was,
however, for it is quite clear that
the actual body of the dead man
was thought of as persisting to live
a sort of underground life within
the barrow. A stone hut was constructed for its use : real weapons
and implements were left by its
side, and slaves nnd wives were
ruthlessly massacred, as still in
Ashantee, in order that their bodies
might accompany the corpse of the
buried master in his subterranean
dwelling. Tn all this'wehave clear
evidence of a very inconsistent, stiv-
uge, materialistic belief, not indeed
ih the immortality of the soul,
baft-* in    the    continued    under-
plifo of tlie dead body.—The
7_yU"ifazitK.
a statement that
tlifl l^-tgfcgPvormuoiit. i.s about to
guarantefl-jt loan for tho completion
of the Panama canal. The Paris
correspondent to tlie London Times
writes that tiie government is about
to send M. .Rousseau, "a trustworthy engineer," to report upon tho
condition and prospects of the great
undertaking. If his report still be
favorable, "a loan will bo granted
to the company to push the work to
completion." If it shall be adverse,
adds the correspondent, "the outer-
prise will be allowed to collapse,
and the govmuuietit will assume
the responsibility." Jf this statement is' correct the time is near at
hand when France as a nation will
become directly interested iu the
Panama canal, Tlie New York
Times says: '-Heretofore the officers
and representatives of the company,
as well as the diplomatic representatives of France, have declared that
the canal was and would continue
to be a purely commercial enterprise. Now we are told that if the
report of a, French commissioner
shall be favorable, a loan sufficiently
lnrge to complete the work wilt be
granted to the company. The language indicates that the loan is to
be granted by the government, and
uot that it is only permission to sell
lottery bonds to the people that is
to depend upon the commissioner's
report The prosecution of the work
upon a national loan would make
the canal a national work and a
disturbing element in international
politics." This would bring ou precisely the consequence foretold in the
United States somite by Miller, of
California, some two years ago. He
said thut this project for transit
across the American isthmus, or
any other, if over completed, would
either be pushed to completion under direction of the United States,
or would bo taken by the United
States after its completion. No
European power, he said, would bo
permitted to hold thnt menace over
the United States. Should France
complete this canal, war betwoen
France and the United States for
control of it would bo a highly probable consequence.—Oriijonian.
If a great body of British subjects should organize a league to collect n fund to pay the expenses of
a large number of members of congress in Washington whose avowed
purpose was a radical change iu thc
constitution of this country and of
the internal relations of tho Union,
thero would be a "state of things" iu
a general uproar about wicked British gold and a vehement denunciation of Uritish insolence aud imper*
tinonce, Thom is no doubt that
strong pressure would be applied to
the administration to demand an
explanation of so extraordinary an
interference of foreigners iu our
domestic afl'airs. This is, however,
just what the Parnell parliamentary fund association and similar
societies are doing in this country.
They are collecting money for the
support of members of parliament
who aro pledged to demand, and if

possible to secure, certain -British
legislation involving a constitutional
reconstruction of the empire. If a
body of British subjects should
raise a fund to support free-trade
membors of congress at Washington, they would do precisely what
these aid societies are doing. There
is, indeed, no taw prohibiting any
class of American citizens from
voluntarily contributing money for
any purpose, not criminal, and sending it to any Frenchman or Irishman or Englishman whom they muy
select. Such a tribrte to Mr. Herbert Spencer, to Huxley, to Lord
Tennyson, or to any beneficiary in
England who might .be named,
would be only like the British fund
which is proposed as a mark of respect to Mr. Walt Whitman in this
country. It produces notlrfng buf
a! genet-Otis and friendly international feeling. A similar tribute might
be offered by American admirers to
Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Parnell, or Lord
Salisbury. But an American fund
to pay Mr. Parnell's or Lord Salisbury's election expenses, or to supj
port him as a member of parliament for a particular political purj
pose involving the integrity of the
empire, and among the subscribers
to which, or its publio supporters,
should be an ex-president and the
present governor of New York, al{
though not forbidden by the law,
would not be a movement which
savored of comity toward England,
and it would be sure to be resented
by public feeling in that country
It is very unfortunate that this
country should be made by atiy
class of citizens the pecuniary base
of political movements in another,
and it is a gross abuse of the spirit
and purposo of our laws that uny
one should seek naturalization here
in order to take part with greater
impunity in political conflicts elsewhere. It can hardly give moral
weight to the position of a member
of parliament that he is known to
have lieen imposed as u candidate
upon his constituency by a committee or a dictator, and to be supported in his position as a member
by the money of citizens of another
country. It is a position which
would not satisfy the self-respect of
many poor meu quite worthy to be
members of parliament, and the
movement is ono which deserves attention ns an anomaly in international  relations.—Harper's  Weekly,
Local Option.
The principal features of the new
license law for Washington Territory
(which passed the house by a unanimous vote) are as follows:
On presentation tu the county commissioners in May of any even numbered year of a petition signed by not
less than fifteen electors of any election
precinct tho commissioners must order
nn election to be held in that precinct
on tho fourth Monday of the fellow ing
Juno to decida the question whether
tho sale of intoxicating liquors shall bo
prohibited in that precinct for the two
yoars following. In case prohibition
is carried iu two successive elections
tho question cannot be again submitted
in that precinct for ten years after tho
second election. Incorporated cities
and towns are mnde one election precinct for tho purposes of this act.
Persons to be qualified to vote ou the
quostion iu uny precinct must have
been a resident of that precinct for
sixty days previous to the date of the
election. The object of this is to place
the beginning of the residence qualification beforo the announcement that
the question ia to voted on, so as to
prevent colonization for fraudulent pur-
Soses. Upon prohibition carrying, all
censes previously in thut precinct sre
immediately revoked, and the money
for tho unexpired torm for which they
wero issued is to be refunded. Druggists may sell under this law only on
the prescription of a practising physician, under specified conditions, nnd
under tin circumstances may they allow
tho liquor drunk on thoir premises.
When sold for mechanical or sacramental purposes it can only be on u
writton statement setting forth explicitly the kind and quantity of liquor
wanted, and for what purpose. The
statements and prescriptions must be
preserved by the druggist, and, when
called for, submitted before tlm court
as evidence.
The Consoienok Fund.- -A curious
contribution to the conscience fund
wns mnde the other day in the shape
of one-half of a 6500 note. It was but
iu two in the middle by a pair of sharp
shears evidently, for the edge wu
smooth. The letter bore the postmark of New York. Upon the piper
to which the half-note was pinned was
written in. a disguised hand and bold
strokes: "Restitution internal revenue*
Publish receipt. Keep record of numbers of bill. More later." Receipt of
this curium contribution was nude in
the usual way, by the publication of a
press dispatch iu most of the New
York newspapers. This seems to have
satisfied the contributor, for he sent
to day the remaining half of the note
inclosed in n sheet of paper on which
was written: '•Restitution. Othor half
sent previous."— Washington Letter,
Cank Ciiazb in Washington.—Tho
latest mem which has struck the
Washington belle ii the carrying of
caucs, A few weoks ago a young leader in suciuty returned from England,
nnd tho next day sho surprised her
friends by appearing on the street
with a cane, It wasn't tho ordinary
dudo cane, but a nice, little Btiok,
With a shepherd's crook of hammered
nil ver. Sometimes shu swung it and
nt other times sho struck the ground
with a sharp rap. There is no question that this created a sensation, but
tliere is a grunt deal of difference of
upinion as to whether tho craze will
striko in or not. So far not more than
half n dozen girls Hnve tWilereu up
courage t'liu.tgh to appear on thu stroet
with canes. ' A Woutflll cannot carry a
catie gracefully, and tins uo earthly use
for one.

When it wns announced in tlio
French assembly some tiino ago Unit
Franco had concluded a treaty very
favorable to herself with Madagascar, we expressed the opinion that
the announcement had probably
very little truth to back it. We
notice tlmt the New York Sim of a
recent dnte holds a similar view;
and, still later, tho despatches seem
to bear out theso opinions. It is
now asserted that- the so-called
treaty is nothing more than a draft
made by the French themselves,
which has never received tlio assent
of thc Madagascar government ut
all. Moreover, the people and powers of Madagascar distinctly refuse
to accept it or anything like it, and
it is not believed they will surrender
anything to France.
From Mr. Blake's London speech,
t an extract from wliich will be
1 found on tite fourtli page, it seems
i tlmt he suspects the very thing that
; was pointed out some time ago in
these columns as probable, namely,
that Sir John was most anxious to
make the Riel mutter an excuse for
dissolution und a fresh appeal to
the country. Mr. Blake says: "For
the purpose of forwarding their design to form nn anti-French party
the ministerial organs here [in Ontario] have proclaimed their defeat.
But the organs do not play the
same tune in Quebec. It is only a
dodge!" He intimates tliat so far
as he is concerned there is no intention to defeat the government on
the Riel or any other question just
now, but he hopes to be able to
carry the next election. The attitude of Mr. Blake on the Riel question is such us no person can find
fault with.
In the Guardian of lust Wednesday there appeared several items in
whicli was conspicuously shown the
bitterness of extreme party and
personal hate. And in order to
give some show of justification for
these items, the organ puts forward
some statements and arguments
which are very ridiculous. We are
told, for example, thut tlio cliango
of the 0. P. H. terminus from Port
Moody to Coal Harbor will work
ruin to the interests of this city, be
cause "so long as Port Moody held
the sway, passengers nnd goods came
up this way, but if steamers are
placed on the route between Victoria and Coal Harbor, nothing will
come through this city." This is a
great fallacy. Does the organ suppose that a line of steamers would
not have been put on to Port Moody
if it had remained as the terminus'!
And if a line of steamers har1 'cen
put on from Port Moody 'ietoria direct, passengers between
these points would surely hot be
likely to pass through New Westminster. The attempt of the organ
to identify the interests of this city
with those of Port Moody, as
against Coal Harbor, is not supported by either facts or probability.
HopefUl Signs-
Reference bos already been made
to the decided victory gained liy the
party   of  reform   in tho Tototito
mayoralty   contest.      It   is   with
scarcely less pleasure we observe an
improved  tone in tlie annual ines-
KiigeH   of  some of   thc prominent
mayors in the  United States, notably thoso of Boston, Brooklyn and
New York.     Krom tliese it seems
certain   that   thn growth  of  that
spirit of independence and  equity
which  scorns tho party machine is
much  more rapid than people generally believed it would be.    Mayor
O'Brien, of Boston, who has been
reelected by a very large majority,
says   in   his   message:   "Political
tricksters who have  merely   some
selfish   purpose to gratify will receive no countenunce from me, no
matter   what party they may be
identified with for the time being.
It is by yielding to these men because of the few voteB they control
that municipal governments in all
the large cities of the country have
become a synonym for waste and extravagance and corruption.    This is
strong language, but I know that
every word of it is true."   Theso
words are of th(j right sort, nnd
give promiso that the days when
public affairs shall be controlled by
the ring and the politicul machine
may be coming to nn end.    A botter public sentiment will ultimately
prevail and sweep from office the
suckers whose chief concern is to
fatten at the public crfb.

All Impossible Tusk.
Many of our readers will remember tho remarkable urtiule whicli
appeared iu the Guardian somo
yenrs ago when the editor attempted
to excuse himself for turning his
political coat. The Guardian Imd
been one of the most unscrupulous
and vindictive opponents of the
Walkem-Beaven administration, until it succeeded in making a bargain
in wliich it agreed to support that
administration in consideration of
receiving the government printing
and advertising. It then flopped
over and became at once a thick-
aiid-thin supporter of the men it
had so vigorously opposed, and has
continued till this day to abuse and
vilify every one who came into conflict with the party it had beep
purchased to whitowush. In tlie
history of journalism we do not
remember ever to have met with
a more conspicuous instance of a
newspaper deliberately selling itself
and its principles. The excuse
uttered by the organ, when charged
with this disreputable transaction,
was that it had been for years engaged in the impossible task of making water run up hill, and had come
to the conclusion that it would be
better to cease theso fruitless eHbrts
and accept wliatover price it could
get for its principles. That was
not a very satisfactory excuse; but
it was the best the organ had aud,
perhaps, expressed its actual sentiments. But with tliat political
summersault, it seems, the organ
did not abandon the impossible task
of making water run up hill. It
so happened that a very brief period
only elapsed between the time it
sold its support to the Walkeiu-
Beaven administration and the time
when that administration suffered
defeat. It came to pass, therefore,
that tho political services of the
organ very soon became gratuitous,
and its chief occupation was to
throw mud at the persons who had
been the means of cutting off' its
supplies. It found itself in opposition to the majority of Uio electors, nnd vainly endeavoring to
make water run up hill. In that
position it has continued up to the
present moment, and we are not
able even now to perceive nny signs
of returning rcuson. Tliere is
scarcely a political or municipal or
personal issue in which the organ
has taken part during thc intervening years tlmt lias not turned out
disastrously to itself. At the lust
general election it culled upon the
voters to reject Mr. John Robson,
who was one of the candidates, and
Mr. Robson came out at the head
of the poll. When that gentleman
accepted office and appealed again
to the electors, the organ shouted
itself bald to defeat him, but he
was returned by acclamation. When
Mr. Jus. Cunningham appeared as
a candidate for the eity, ho was mot
with the organ's opposition and
abuse, and gained the seat by a
handsome majority. In municipal
n tters the attempt of our cotemporary to make water run up hill
hns been equally unsuccessful. During the yenr 188-1 it assailed the
whole council and condemned both
tlieir acts and their policy, but every
one of thc members of that council who sought re-election in 1885
was successful. The same policy
was pursued last year, and the attacks of the organ on tlie mayor
were characterized by even more
vigor nnd venom. At the municipal election this month tho mayor
and council of 1885 were ull returned, except one of the members
for St. Andrew's ward—and lie was
replaced by a gentleman whom tho
organ cordially hates. Thero aro
some peoplo whose friendship is
worse than their hatred, and it may
be inferred from these facts that
no person need look for public trust
if his recommendation is the Guardian's endorsement. Jiut tho organ
never seems to learn wisdom from
experience, but goes on week after
week piling up columns of thc silliest abuse of the provincial secretary, the member for this city, the
municipal council, nnd all other
persons who refuse to subscribe to
its doctrines or patronize its advertising columns. Wheu tho voice of
public opinion is pronounced against
it, its answer is that the electors are
fools and knaves und are not worthy
to be entrusted with the franchise
at all. These insults to the intelligence of a people who refuse to be
guided in their decisions by an organ
that puts profit wliere principle
ought to lie, have been repeated
over and over again until thoy aro
stale and powerless even to rouse
one's indignation. But wo suppose
the organ will still continue mournfully to waste its energies in that
impossible task of endeavoring to
make water ri n up hill, and wu do
not know that anybody cares much
whether it docs or not.

Hudson Bay RAttWAY.—A Winnipeg speoial says: The party sent out
last October by capitalists interested iu
opening the Hudson Bay route to make
u preliminary survey of the country
along Hudson Bay, to determine the
feasibility and cost of constructing a
railway, returned to-day.    Thoy re-
Sort thut the line is not only feasible,
ut can be built at a cost not exceeding
820,000 per mile, much less than the
amount anticipated, the country being
undulating, srndy, very little agricultural land along the routo aud no
heavy grades. The route proposed is
along the north shore of Oxford lake,
direct to the eeu. The river falls on
the east braneh of the Nelson river,
The mouth of Nelson river has been
chosen us the terminus of the line.

Mary-dt. Improvements.—Our enterprising citizen, Mr, A. M. Herring,
is ubout to erect 4 handsome residences
on the property he lately purchased
ou Mary street, as will be seen from
his advertisement calling for tenders
in another column. The houses, we
learn, are to be two stories high, with
buy windows, 0 rooms upstairs and 4
rooms and a large hull downstairs,with
stairs front and baok. They will be
hard finished throughout, and each
will have a handsome poreh over the
front door. We understand that tenants for two of these houses have already been secured, to take possession
upon the completion of the structures.
Thia is another evidence of the wisdom
of selling the public squares,. Since
the sale there hnvo been 7 residences,
a church and an Oddfellow's hull projected.
The Artim-rry.—On Saturday we
published an item from the Canada
Gazette relating to the appointment of
Capt, Bole to the command of the Seymour Artillery, vice Oapt. Pittendrigh,
retired. The official order Jb accompanied by a letter from Lieut-Col.
Holmes, A.D.A.G., from which we
make the following extract: "The
A.D.A.G. commanding the district
wishes upon this occasion to express
his regret that Capt. Pittendrigh has
been compelled by the regulations of
the service to sever hia connection
with the force iu this district. The
very satisfactory condition of Capt.
Pittendrigh's battery during the past
two years (last year the best and
smartest in tho district) has been owing
to the zeal and energy displayed by
him in its behalf, and its condition on
boing handed over last November to
Capt. Bole, both as regards the personnel and state of arms, accoutrements and clothing, is deserving of tho
highest credit—a state which it is
hoped this corps will continue to maintain. Capt. Pittendrigh carries with
him the regards and beat wishes of the
officers, not only of his nld corps, but
of the district at largo."
Maple Ridqu License Cask.—On
Thursday Judge McCreight gavo judgment in the ease of Thos. Levi vs. the
Justices of Mnple Ridge. This was a
cuse of appeal. The appellant (Levi)
was convicted lust November of selling
liquor by retail without a license, nnd
fined 8130, and appealed from the conviction, He claimed tho right to sell
undor a licenso issued some yenrs ago
to Wm. Boss, who at one time curried
on business under it, but afterwards
sold out. Ross hud Agreed thut Levi
might sell under the license, out no
transfer hud been approved of by a
Hennaing court under the act. His
lordship hold thut such authority as
wus set up could not lawfully be given,
London, Jun. 20,—In the house of
commons this evoning Mr. OollingB
moved his amendment to tho nddress
ou tho subject of allotments. Mr.
Gladstone strongly supported Mr. Ool-
linga' amendment and the Marquis of
Hartington opposed it. Sir Miclinel
Hicks-Bench snid the government
would willingly accept the decision of
the house, as they hud assumed oilieo
with reluotnnee and would resign without regret. Tho umeudmout was adopted by a voto of 3211 to 250, tho govornment thus being defeated, Tho result
of the division was received by tho
Irish members with derisive cheers
and cries of "boycotted."
London, Jnn. 27.—Gladstone hold
a conference this afternoon with Granville in regard to the resumption of
office by the liberals. Salisbury will
have an interview to-day with W. H.
Smith, yesterdny sworn in us chief
secretary fur Ireland. A meeting of
the cabinet will also bo held to-dny,
after whioh the ministers will proceed
to Osborne to place their* resignation
in the hands of the Queen. Tho crisis
excites but little interest among the
the general public, and commercial
and financial affairs are but slightly
weaker. The defeat uf the government last night haa left alt political
parties in the house uf commons in a
state of chaos, and may result hi a dissolution of parliament and an appeal
to the country.
The Pull Mali Gazelle in a leading
editorial points out as a sombre coincidence tho fact that the Salisbury cabinet fell on the anniversary of tho death
of Gen. Gordon, who was killed at
Khartoum Jan. 20,1885. Speculating
on the probabilities of a new ministry
the Gazette says that a strong ono could
bo formed by Mr. Gladstone if he
would take into it such men us Jos.
Chamberlain, John Morley, William
S. Prostan Caine. Reginald R. P.
Brntt, Sir George Russel, Lord R-.tse-
berry, Lord Hartington and Mr. Pur- j
noli, who, the paper continues, will
any event be virtually cliief secretary
for Ireland and he might us well he
tuken iuto thu cabinet first as lust. Tn
conclusion tho Gazette snyB if Mr. Gladstone* will form his cabinet of tho
material suggested he will secure for
himself the,prospect of a strong and
stable government. The Globe, Conservative, snys it is rumored thnt Mr.
Parnell has resolved to use homo rule
to overthrow Mr. Gludstone at tho
first opportunity that presents itself
should the Liberals assume power.
Mr. Parnell will do this for the purpose of exhibiting to tho Irish abroad
his power, in order to stimulate donations to the Pnrnellite treasury, which
was nearly drained by the recent elections.

-IDllOWNKD   IN Bl'KNAHY LAKE.—-We
very much regret to learn of the death
of Henry A.  Hyde by drowning in
Burnaby Lako last  Thursday.    The
deceased was occupying a cabin on the
othor sido uf the lake, where he has
long held a lot of land.   On Thursday
hia nephew, Mr. Geo, Hyde, went out
with some letters, but wuuld not venture across tho lake beoauso the ice
was rotten.   Ho called to his uncle,
whu came down tu the lake and began
constructing a raft.   Ho seems to havo
given this up, however, and taking a
pole in his hand proceeded to cross on
tho ice.   After going somo distnncu ho
broke through, but got nut again, and
was making his way along near the
shore where  there  aro considerable
quantities of brush growing in the
wator.   Hero George oould  not  see
him distinctly, and it ia bolioved that
he either  went   through   and was
drowned, or perished after a wearisome
effort  to get through the broken too
and  the  brushwood.   George. Heard
him  say that ho must, go buck and
change his clothes, and afterwards
beard him aay that he was perishing
with   cold.   As he could render no
assistance whatever tu his uncle ho
started fur the oity as fast as possible
to, procure help.   He gut Mr. J. C.
Hughes, Mr. Arch. McCorvie, and the
Indian  Douglns Bill to go out with
ropes and other appliances in the hope
that the perishing mnn might be rescued,   McCorvie and tho Indian wont
across the lake and found Hyde's esbin
upon, and his tracks lending down to
the lake, whero they saw the axe and
partly-constructed raft.   No signs of
tho man could be found, howover, aud
after, searching until after dark the
party returned to the city.   Another
search party with grappling irons wont
out yosterday.   It is possible the deceased mny hnve got out of the water
in an exhaust ud  state and perished
with cold and fatigue before he could
roach his cabin.   Harry Hyde is the
son of Capt. Hyde, uf tho British
nrmy, and came to this country from
Surma, Ont,, in June 1850, in eompaiiy with Hon. Jno. Robson and Mr,
O, G.Major.   After  spending a few
years in tlio lower country ho went to
Cariboo, and hns for many yoars beeu
engaged in mining operations there.
Ho was nbout 55 yonrs of ago, and wns
f;teutly esteemed by those who knew
iim. His brother kopt the Heaver
Pssb House for some timo, nnd died
nbout (1 yeurs ngu, Besides his nephew,
George, and his sfstor-ih-law, Mrs,

Lanoley Prairie, Jan, 27.—If we
wero to base our prognostications of
the stute of the atmosphere upon the
presont indications wo would certainly
pronounce au opinion in fuvor of a
complete thaw and u speedy return of
mild weathor.   The snow is fast disappearing bofore its powerful foes—
the wind and ruin.   The former, with
its merry mad-cap frolics, has been
bestowing eapeoial attention upon our
prairie during the last few weeks, rendering the cold weather more keen and
disagreeable than it otherwise would
havo been; but upun tho whole wo
have had a mild winter, and newcomers must feel delighted with uur
salubrious climate   The roads have
been  decidedly bad  throughout tho
autumn and winter seasons, occasioning muoh annoyance to those who have
had occasion to use them,   .We are,
howover, anticipating extensive improvements this year in tho way of
roads, and may our just desires bo j
fully   realized!    Despite   indifferent
roads, some of our good neighbors havo
mado it possible to haul the materials
requisite for the erection of a Methodist church, tho building of which ia
just being commenced.   Tho perplexing school site dispute has at Inst been
settled by arbitration, but whether the
sito chosen is unvorsnlly satisfactory is
doubtful.   The land necessary for tho
sohtol building and play yn und hns
been kindly donated by Mrs, Campbell, and  it  is understood that the
machinery will at once be set in motion in order to oomploto tho work of
construction as soon as possibo, ao that
tho pupils may bo early benefited by
the   more central situation.   During
tho "oold snap" great iucunvoniencu
has beon experienced  by the settlors
on this side of tho Fraser on account
of their inability to cross to Westminster, the   miserable substitute  for a
ferry, owing tu a slight crust of ice,
being laid aside;  whereas, if wo had I
suoh a boat as tho country now merits, J
the ice, now effectually burring communication with the city, would be
scarcely noticeable.
No Icebergs at Port Moody,
Enrror.Cor.iTMiiiAS.--It is gratifying
to notice your admission that tho ice nt
Port Moody is generally uot thick enough
to prevent navigation, and that onr harbor has not really been frozen over to
thc thickness of a foot or so, nu one
might have concluded from your recent
statements. You should have stated
tho wholo truth, however, and said thut
navigation is. never prevented by iee
here. No one denies thnt thore has beeu
iee in this harbor, but we do claim that
it wart not thick enough to he any serious
obstruction to navigation. The Princess
Louise which, it is claimed, cut her way
through ice oue uud ii-hsiif inches thick
to reach hero on tlio trip referred to, did
not touch a piece of ice until she reaohed
tho wharf, when she hit u piece oE llout.
There nro plenty of witnesses to the
truthfulness of this statement. You
mention the fact that the tug Leonora
refused to bring Walker's body up to
I'ort Moody on account of ice. If so,
she must bo in very gallant hands for
the body was brought iu a small row-
boat to Kelly's wharf, nearly at the
head of tho buy. Fair Pr*AV.

ness of the men who are directly responsible for n rather mid state of things. As
a sahiplo of the wuy the city finances nre
nmnagdll I will draw your attention to
the fuet that us far us oan lie asoortairied
(not from the clerk's honks, for, with
the auditor's help and the certificate of
the finance committee, nothing but chaos
reigns there), there were about SIM00
received into the treasury of tho eity
fathers the past year, und. according to
Councillor Elliott.'.**-, speech at tho last
meeting of council, only about S'i.OOO
wns spent in nctual improvements-* only
one-third of the revenue accounted for,
und two-thirds gone, no one known
wliere. I-could .giye -you moro of the
sumo sort, hut this ono problem, I think,
will ho sufficient to engage the attention
of tho ratepayers for some time. To
work out this problem would he more
profitable than the one about the ballots,
Tho next point or subject which I will
draw your attention to is the commercial:
and in this I will be brief nnd cite a caso
that can be comprehended hy the merest
school-boy. Here we nre on tho banks
of the noble Frasor, facing a country to
the south of almost boundless extent for
agricultural pursuits. We might have
their undivided trade, but nil that hns
been dono to get that trade wus a bungling arrangement to put a ferry boat ou
the river which nevor lit for the service,
and is now laid up, ami thc nn fortunate
settlors aro obliged to lot their produce
mould ond rot on the farm or haul them
great distances to some shipping point
on the American side of tho line, which
is also impracticable.
Now I will take up the moral point of
view and in this also I will bo brief, for !
I dislike to dwell on this subject; it is
not a pleasant one. The day beforo yesterday, in company with Mr. Austin and
another man whoso name I do not now
recollect, [ visited the Chinese quarters
in this city. We had an English-speaking Chummnn with us to interpret, uud
us fnr ns wo wero permitted to penetrate
their abodes of poverty, vice and filth,
their condition, morally, must he something awful; nnd to make it still worse,
besides the evidences (by smell) of opium
there nro two licensed whisky simps, one
at either end of the block. The low
fiend tlint wns so heavily lined by tho
city authorities lately still lives here and
no doubt runs the same prostitution business; ho may bo caught again nnd, of
course, theso tines will swell the city
finance!' that ure so economically expended. Whilst I nm on this purt of the
subject I may ns well Otato that I hnve
been informed by those who know bettor
thnn I do, thnt the city fathers hnve
very'providently licensed in this young
city of nbout '2,000 (moro or less) ll)
houses to sell intoxicating drinks, nud
besides it is well known (no doubt to tho
city fathers) thnt the high-toned brothels
(1 don't mean thos:- la the Cllilloso guar-*
tore) vend the same or more potent drugs
tn their customers, free of license.
These establishments nre what 1 have
heard some of the city fathers call necessary evil*, and of course they, U c the
water monopolists, ure entitled to spocial
privileges. Whilst I mu on tliis moral
question let me give ynu uu instance of
the way business is managed in tho polico court. A complaint wis mnde a tow
days ago by somebody (it appears thc
names were suppressed) Unit two ladles
had opened n shop at (Iriinvillc;
For some obvious renson the cuso was
brought to this city and before nt least
one of our most jiraiiihteut magistrates-
tlio lawyers, ns usual, took tho case out
of the bands of the magistrates mid settled it, to their own hearts' content, no
doubt. Justico shall not be bought nnr
sold, says Magna Chnrta: you wore mistaken, Mr, liarons, so far as New Westiniuster ib concerned,
What do you think of the prospects

and commercially ? Who will answer
this question '! I)on't all speak nt once;

[Our correspondotil; Is not oxaofly correct, The i-ovenue for the yenr wan
over §1(1,(100, anil the sum sppht.p'n permanent improvements wns only a little
over 84,fi00. But the cmiucil of last
yenr hnd to pay out of the current rov-
large sum on account of land sales and
railway bonus loan, which has not yet
been recouped, amounting to over$1,500.
It wns always understood thut the costs
incurred iu connection with tho sale of
squares uud the mil way bonus should be
repaid to the eity treasury out of the
proceeds  of   the sales.     If  these two
sums of 81,500, paid out of last year's
revenue as  un extraordinary expenditure, had  been  available for  ordinary
purposes the expenditure on permanent
improvements would havo been {7,500*—-
very nearly hnlf the ordinary revenue.
It is very unjust for Mr. Kennedy to
affirm that the balance of th-* revenue
"has gone no one knows where."   The
abstract of  accounts  published  shows
where it hns gone.   And here we wish to
suy  that  wc think Mr, Kennedy hus
done the city clerk a great wrong both
in his speech nt nomination and in his
letters.     Thc  clerk   is, we believe, a
most ellicient, conscientious, und careful officer, and this is the reptitntion he
has   borne   ever  since he assumed the
duties of \m important office.     Thero
ure several large items in the accounts
for legnl expenses, - Hut these items belong principally to the costs incurred in
connection with the two bills obtained
for the city laud sales and tho Chinese
cases which were appealed to the supreme
court.    In both these cases the city bar-
inters found it necessary to make largo
disbursements, and to make many trip
to Victoria; uud if Mr. Kennedy will
take the trouble to look these accounts
up he will very likely admit (as the council has already admitted) that they are
not iiut'cnsoiiablo when the extent and
character of the service are considered.
Mr. Kennedy next discusses the ferry,
aud seems to hold the city council responsible for its defects.   The ferry has
answered a most excellent purpose; and
although -there is room tot improvement,
the thing is not within reach of the
council so long as the conditions of the
charter are complied- with.   With respect to the liquor licenses, if Mr, Kennedy knew anything of the laws that
govern tliese  establishments he would
know that the licenses are granted by a
board of magistrates and uot by the
council ub all. if liquor Ib sold illegally, as
stated, it is the duty of Mr. Kennedy or
any other citizen cognizant of the fact
to mnke a complaint and have tho law
vindicated.      The  last  charge is like
some of the others—it relates to a matter entirely beyond the sphere of the
council.   The case was not even beforo
the police court, but boforo the district
court, and Mr. Kennedy should make
his representations to tbe government if
he  thinks justice has not been done.
We hope our readers will excuse these
lengthy remarks, but if Mr. Kennedy is
sincere we arc anxious to explain what
he docs not seem able to comprehend,
Wc shall be glad now to end the discussion,—Eu.]

MEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORU.
Nr.w York, Jan. lil.—A London dispatch to the Time* from Berlin says: I
am .v.itliorizeil to deny the report-that
the delegates sent to China by German
and other banks have gone to negotiate a
lonii. Tlieir business is to study the
country and get a railway concession.
Thoy arr> prepared, howover, to form a
syndi-'utc with English or American, and
even French, competitors. The Franco*
Chinese Treaty docs not give France any
monopoly in railway construction as is
stutcd, and I learn that the late Chinese
minister to Berlin, J-i Fong Poo, who has
been under disgrace, is to be pardoned,
and will probably receive an important
position. He will certainty support German efforts to get a railway concession.
Xr.w York, Jan. 18.—London dis-
•pntohes represent keen rivalry between
Knglish and German capitalists interested in the effort to obtain Chinese railway concessions. The Manchester
Guardian nud other English journals
push tho scheme, and as tbe means of
obtninipg a better hold on the Chinese
trade, the abolition of the tea tax is
urged. It is thought that the Roths*
eliilds will withdraw their support from
tho German loan scheme to China when
they understand that behind the ostensible purposes of the loan, such as constructing railways, improving defences
and tho like, there is a vast project for
thc injury of the English trade. The
Zeitmig calls attention to the London
correspondence of the Paris Journal des
Dchats on the subject, and observes that
the tone and tendency of the correspondence is anything but friendly. The communication lias been obviously dictated
by tho wish to checkmate German business plans as far ss possible through
Paris.

A Humorist with a Shotuan.
A story is told of how Burdette, tho
humorist, after marrying ngainst tho
will of his sweetheart's stern father,
visited that gentleman aud, with liis
wife on one nrm and n shotgun in tho
hollow   of   the other,  secured  pouco
with honor.    Thero is another story
of another exploit with a shotgun by
Mr.  Burdette which is authenticated
by his admission.      Burglars   wore
numerous in Burlington nt one time
when when the clover writer was engaged on the Haicketjc, and a number
of houses near his own had been raided.     Naturally, undor   iho  circumstances, Mr.  Burdette slept lightly,
and so, whon a slight noiso was mado
ono night at a window on tho ground
floor he whs awakened.    Mr. nnd Mrs.
Burdottc ocoupiod a room in tho sec-
ond storey, und Burdette roso from his
bed  quietly, without  distnrbim* his
wife, stepped tu a window, and discovered two men at work cutting the
slats in tho shutter of n window opening on a porch below.   It was just the
opportunity  ho  had  been  awniting.
He had always wanted to kill a burglar, anyhow.    He felt confident the
robbers,  aftor   entering   tho   house,
would como up stairs, and getting his
shotgun he sat down placidly at tho
top of tlio stairway  to await them.
Ho would slay them with n couplo of
charges of*buckshot just as thoy hogan tho ascent.   Ho waited long and
Satiently with the gun across his knees,
ut he could hear no furthor noise,
ind the burglars did not appear.   It
wu a drowsy sort of night, just warm
enough to make it comfortable for liim
whoro he sat with his back ngainst tho
wait, and he concluded to wait until
the  villains   camo, though   ho  hnlf
feared they might have failed to ett'ecl
an entrance to the Iioubo.    Ho leaned
back contentedly, and it appeared to
him only a moment later when ho wns
shaken by tho shoulder and Mrs. Bur*
detto  wanted  to know  what ho wns
doing there.   It wns broad daylight.
Tho watcher explained tho situation,
and then the two wont down stairs.
Thu door  wns  opon and thu lower
rooms had buen plundered artistically.
Whether the burglars hnd uot intended
to oomn up-stairs at ull, or were deterred by the annoyance of stepping
over u sleeping humorist, wilt never bo
known.   $0 the affair passed into history -merely nn incident in tho annuls
of a quiet neighborhood.

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO A ORGAN CO.
Speaking of tho great central exbibi-
tiitiou opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
the most casual und cureless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Com*
finny.   This is a separate building but a
ittle distance from the south east of the
Main Building.   This pavilion must be
nbout 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra.  It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to all in broad letters that
it is tho pavilion of that company, and
that  Joseph   Kuso,  of 6S  King-street i
West, represents the company.   Inside
uo pains have been spared to make it attractive, nud certainly its designs have
succeeded.   No one should visit thc Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of music.   Here are decorations, handsome pictures of the Dominion factory
aud of  the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
genius and skill of our Canadian manufacturers.   Pianos aud organs of every
style and artistic design are found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood,  satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and  beryl walnut.     A double manual
nud pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces the visitor at the extreme
end as he enters this pavilion.   For company aro organs of every stylo and do*
sign to suit the purchaser.   The Company nlsu exhibit with tho degree of
triumph and merit thc fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition field thero the Company had just cariied off the tirst prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This  is  certainly  remarkable,   though
when tho rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as nt first might seem.
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable.     The  exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday Inst
emphasized the high compliment he paid
tho Dominion Organ and Piano Company
at the opening of the London Fair. In
his nddress from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impo
tits Exhibitions gavo to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited ns an illustration of tho wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Or^an and I'iano Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Organ aud Piano Company)
bad not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, Irom England, France, and Germany, the very eontros of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements in it und-
cnl knowledge, hut thuso judges, who
coninrised some of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that thc
Instruments of this company were superior to any they had over seen, hoard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from such a source, in addition to their
succcis at this Exhibition, tho Company
ought to feel content.

From the Diary of an old criminal Lawyer—A. II. Richmond, Esq.
"Had I tho peti of a rendy writer, I
could writo volumes in relating incidents of crime and horror whose details I liavo heartl either in our courts
I    or in tho cells of our jails, all directly
'    traceable to tho licenso system, and
when my hand   was weary and my
memory failed me, 1 could yet say
>    that even the half had not been told.
"My experience at the bar haa satisfied me that liquor selling is the direct
cause of nearly all tho crime thnt is
committed in our country.    I have
been at the bar uver thirty years, have
•     been engaged in nearly four thouaand
j    criminal cases, and on mature reflection I am   satisfied that over three
thousand of tlioso cases have originated
from the liquor trattle alone, and I bolieve that n great proportion of the
remainder could be traced cither directly or indirectly to this great source
of crime.   1 u 5ti cases of homicide 411
have been caused by the maddening
influence of strong drink.
"1 have seen upon the counsel table
of our court room the skull of an aged
fnther, who was killed by a drunken
son. My brother and myself sat by
hia sido as his counsel, and T never
shall forget tlm lu-k of that son when
the ghastly evidence of his guilt was
laid upon thu stand before him. That
silent but eloquent witness—lhe skull
that had once been covered with a
father's uruy hairs! It wns a wicked
and most unnatural crime, and begot
feelings uf loathing and horror in thu
breasts of all who witnessed the trial.
Vet it was not in reality the son who
linl committed the crime, but tho demon that lurks iu every cup of strong
drink. And that cup had been tilled
mid plnced tothe lips of that son by
the hand of ti (so-called) moat respuci-
able member of society—a man who
Imd a license from that very court to
sell lhat which maddened tlie brain
and guided the hand to murder.
"1 saw upon  that table the skull of
young  B , who was lulled liy his
most intimate friend in a drunken
brawl at H , and the so-called respectable proprietor at whose hotel tho
murder was porpetratcd, nnd who sold
the maddening spirit that prompted
the deed, wns a witness on the trial.
Uu said ho hnd a license from tbat respectable court to sell liquor, yes from
the very court then sitting in judgment on the crime, which was but the
natural result of the license it had sold
and granted.
"I have seen upon that table the
skull of a little child with thu evidence
upon it of a murderous blow, inflicted
by tho hand of a drunken mother.
Yet it was not the mother who had
committed that most unnatural crime.
All our knowledge of the promptings
of a mother's heart deny the charge.
Who, then, committed the crime ?
The demoniacal spirit of strong drink,
sold to the woman by a man who had
it license to sell under the seal and
sanction of that very court.
"I have seen upon that table the
blood-stained skull of a wife, cleft
from top to base by an nxe in the
hand of a brutal, drunken husband,
who came home from a neighboring
licensed beer shop, reeling drunken,
and maddened by drink there sold by
a (so-called) most respectable dealer,
by a man who had a legal right to sell
thnt poison whose effects are more terrible than the plagues coiilined within
the fabled box of Pandora.
"I once defended a man for killing
his owu brother, by whom in n fit of
drunken frenzy ho had boen attacked
with a dangerous weapon, thereby
compelling him iu self-defence to
strike a blow that had taken his
brother's life. He was tried for murder, and in his defense I called the
landlord to prove that tho murdered
brother was mad from the effects of
the liquor ho had received at the witness's bar. Ho so testified, yet seemed
conscious of no wrong. Why Bhould
he? He had a license from the court,
and why ahould that brother's blood
cry to Heaven for vengeance against
him! Ho had a legal right to present
the cup to his fellow's lips!"
In closing tliese extracts 1 will add:
Hot for the destructive influences of
Iho licensed saloons and bar-rooms
thousands would be spared to virtue,
industty, happiness, and usefulness
that now swell the appalling ranks of
vice aud crime, and thousands more
would be saved from a life of wretchedness and misery that is worse than
death. When the rumor of the approaching cholera is heard, the health
commission is appointed to examine
the sewers and cess-pools and to re*
move if possible the cause of the
"pestilence that walkcth in darkness
nud ihat wastelh at noon.day." And
yet there are scores of plngue-iiifcctcd
spots, licensed by our courts, and protected by law, from whence aro scattered thu germs of physical aud moral
disease and spiritual death more terrible and certain in their effects than
all the plagues that hnve ever passod
over the earth--licensed saloons and
their accompaniments, houses of prostitution and gambling dons. It is
truly amazing that an enlightened and
professedly Christian people should
even tolerate, much less license-snloons
for thc sale of muddening, deadly
liquors, uud Mistriin them by law for
the comploto ruin of the young. How
can wo stnnd when the Almighty demands a strict account of our stewardship as members of civil government?
The grand jury cannot then be bribed,
nor the Judgo deceived. I believe
these plague-spots will be swept away
as soon aa women (not 1,000 as in
Toronfn)—but nil qualified womon in
tho Dominion—get the franchise. The
sootier they get it the better for humanity, for religion, and for good
government. Wm. Kent.
Who He Is.—For the henen't of
those who may wish to write to tho
governor-general of Canada, wo give
below Ins full and proper address,
whioh, handsomely written out, will
adorn a pretty large envelope: "Moat
Honorable Henry Clark Keith Petty
Fitzmaurico, MarquiB of Lansdowne,
in the county of Somerset, Earl of
Wycombe, of Chipping Wycombo in
the county of Buckinghamshire, Vis
count Cain nnd Cnlnstone, in the
county of WiltBhiro, and Lord Wycombe, Baron of Chipping Wycombo
in the county of Buckinghamshire, in
the Peerage of Great Britain; Enrl uf
Kerry and Earl of Shelbourne, Viscount Clanmaurico, Baron of Kerry,
Limaw, and Dunlcorron, in the Peoruite
of Ireland; Gnvernor-Ooneral of Can
nda ond Vice Admiral of the same."
The Presbyterian, soys: "The close
connection betweon drink and crime
has been strikingly illustrated by Lord
Napier, of Magdala, who has staled
that he caused a return to be prepared
of the offenses of about eighteen
thouinnd soldiers, the result showing
that the total abstainers in the number had no crime, the partial abstainer* practically none, the whole body
of crimt being amongst those who
drank freely." I
Blake on the situation.
At tho great political banquet lately
givon to Hou. Edward Blake in London, Out., where 800 sat down to the
feast and 4000 looked on, the hou.
gentleman delivered a speech on current political events. That part of tho
speech relating to the present situation
and its probable results will be read
with special interest. Thu speaker
said: "Much has been said about
political alliances and compacts in this
connection. I know of none, To
none am I a party, I have had uo communication, direct or indirect, with
any ono outside of my own party. I
have never wished for ofiiee. On the
contrary, I dislike it; nor was there
ever a timo in which it presented, iu
my view, so little to attract, so much
to deter. Beyond this, I believe it to
bo, from a mere party point of viow,
tho interest of the Liberal putty lhat
the present government should remain
in office for n littlo longer, till tho public have seen slill moro,clearly the results of iheir past policy, results which,
if developed iu our reign, would be, as
in thu past times, attributed to us and
not to their real authors. (Hear.) But
were all this othorwiso I believo that a
stable political alliance cull be formed
only on a general understanding on
the substantial questions culling for
legislative and administrative action,
aud that it would bu equally impossible
and undesirable to form ono based on
community of feoliug, did thnt exist,
with regard to art execution. (Hear.)
Nor have I reason to believe that
on that or any other question the
government, though weakened, will be
defeated this session. For the purpose of forwarding their design to
FOHM AN ANTI-FKENCH PAKTY
the ministerial organs hero have proclaimed then* defeat, But tho organs
do not play the same tune in Quebec.
It is only a dodge. The government
would dou^loss like to make this an
issue—nay, the issue—before the English-speaking population. They would
like it because they know thu loug
calendar of their crimes. But the
criminals shall not be allowed t<> choose
tho matter for which they are to be
tried or to frame their own indictment.
(Loud cheers.) For our own pnrt wc,
tno, know the catalogue of tlieir
offences; wo know tho counts of the
indictment; and it is our purpose,
apart altogether from this question of
tho man who ia dead, to deal with the
men who are yet politically alive, and
who, for in numerable political offences,
deserve a political death as sure, as
swift, as Btern as that which has at any
timo heretofore been meted out tu
those in like case offending. (Cheers.)
I believe that in Quebec nud elsewhere,
in and outside of parliament, there has
been a growing feeling of uneasiness nt
the Tory policy; that it is beiug recognized moro and more as a dreadful
failure; that its features of taxation,
restriction, extravagance, corruption,
jobbery, neglect and centralization
have made for it many opponents; that
the government are sinking in public
estimation; that the people are beginning to perceive the wisdom of
our counsels, the folly of our opponents'; thut our labors of these ninny
yoars are at length bearing fruit; that
the governmont will be weaker this
session, and weaker still thereafter,
and will, if we do our full duty, be
defeated at the polls. (Loud cheers.)
As, in my electoral contests, I have
mndo no private canvass, but have depended on my public utterances*., so,
ns a political leader, my
HOPES OF OAlMNa HTRBSnTll
for my party havo rested only on our
public speeches, on the policy we havo
propounded, the principles we have
maintained. (Cheers.) I havo for
some time believed that several supporters of the governmont havo beon
dissatisfied—have felt that they woro,
on the questions of tho day and of the
immediate future, more iu accord with
us thnn with ministers, and have recognized tho expediency of a change.
(Hear.) Thoy havo seen that our
country—which has great nnd solid
natural resources, which oven now,
thank God!—is showing in sume quarters signs of recovery from somo of the
evils inflicted on it by its rulers; which
ia inhabited by an intelligent, industrious and progressive peoplo, affording the main element of real prosperity;
which requires only just and prudent,
fair and statesmanlike governmont to
permit its advance on both tho material
nud moral planes—runs great risk if
the present evil counsels are to ondurc.
(Hear,) Party tics, the bonds of
friendship, lung habit nnd association,
tho consciousness of having borne a
part, though reluctantly, iu some
things now condemned, nnd other considerations of various kinds have long
restrained them, and may restrain
them still. But I d:i not abandon the
hopo that some wilt ahortly come out
from the ranks to which they no longer
iu heart belong, and to cooperate with
ua frankly in effecting n change in thu
public counsels. If we do not, wo will
continue to fight the good fight, with a
stout heart, ns best wo can without
them. But if thoy do, I am suro you
will gladly welcome accessions to our
forces so obtained. (Choors.) Long
hnvo wo hoped for a harvest from the
seed we havo boon Bowing. It may
have germinated now.
800N MAY IT IUPEN '
and the fields grow whito to the harvest. (Cheers.) If I could raise my
feeble voice beyond the limits of this
hall, and say a word in the ear of my
countrymen through Canada at large,
I wonld exhort them to come forward.
Come forward you who cultivate and
water, who cau help to mature and
gather in that harvest! Do your duty
to your country! Take up the responsibilities, as you enjoy the privileges
of citizenship. Give your timo, your
energies, your labor to the work!
Though the skies may bo dark, yet
trust we iu tho Supreme Goodness!
Wo believe our causo is just and true.
We helievo that truth and justice shall
in God's good time prevail. It may bo
soon; it mny be lato. His ways aro
not as our ways, and his unfathomnblo
purposes wo may not gauge, But this
we know, that iu our efforts wo aro iu
the lino of duty. We hopo, indeed, to
make our views prevail; but, win or
lose to-day, we know that we shall receive from tho faithful discharge of
duty an exceeding great roward—the
only reward whioh is suro to last."
